Pineville City Council recognizes community members, area student

The Nov. 14 meeting of the Pineville City Council dealt with many important issues, one of which was delivered by Finance Director David Humphries, who reported the city has enjoyed 15 straight months of positive increases in sales tax collections!
The council and mayor presented John and Margaret Lucas with a “Pineville Proud Award” for their support of the city and its employees. Seems Mr. and Mrs. Lucas set out a water cooler for the city’s sanitation workers when they are working in their neighborhood of Huntington Ridge.
Also recognized was Bailey Manasco. This young man, a Pineville High School student, submitted the winning essay in the High School Division of the Veterans Administration Annual Veterans Day Essay Contest. Mr. Manasco’s essay was entitled “What is a Veteran to Me”.
