The Trinity Valley Community College Crimson Players will present their production of “Duck Hunter Shoots Angel” Nov. 17-20. The comedy, written by Mitch Albom, is an uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck, but think they shot an angel during a hunting trip. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don’t believe any of it-until feathers, wings, and a tiara are discovered along the way. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17-19 and at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 20 at the TVCC Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for Students/TVCC Faculty and Staff/Seniors and $10 for the general public.

Cletus Haning’s little house in the woods.

Special to The News

Saturday, Nov. 12, from 1-4 p.m., the Greater Malakoff Garden Club is hosting a program called “A Step Back in Time,” which celebrates octogenarian Cleatus Barkley Haning’s contributions to the communities in which she’s lived and the replica of a turn-of-the-19th century house she built on her property (just west of the Malakoff High School). She has spent the last six months planning and constructing the house to teach her great grandchildren what life was “really” like without electricity or running water. She hopes they also will learn the lessons and values that the hardship and involvement with nature and fundamentals

Kristi was 22 when she was gunned down in front of her 2-year-old daughter. The shooter was her husband. Her mother, Terry Dreier spoke about the experience at the rally.

By Michael V. Hannigan

ATHENS – In June 2009, 22-year-old Kristi Morris was gunned down in front of her 2-year-old daughter. The shooter was her husband, Matt Morris.

“Every day since that day my heart aches for my daughter,” said her mother, Terry Dreier. “I miss her so much and my life will never be the same.”

Dreier spoke at the Domestic Violence Awareness Month rally on the steps of the Henderson County Courthouse last week.

“When you hear somebody talk about domestic violence, you tend to think, ‘It could never happen to me,’ ‘I could never let anyone treat me like that,’ or ‘That just happens to a few people,’” she said. “You might wonder how anyone could stay in such a situation.
