MERIDIAN — Letter of thanks from Hubert 'Sarge' Rivers

    I want to thank everyone who participated in the Rivers & Robinson Carshow/fundraiser last month. Thank you to all of the people who worked so hard to put this event together.

    Thank you to the people who worked at the event, who donated gifts, donated food, for everything! Thank you to LEMA as well as the other emergency groups that participated. Also, all other groups who participated and the people that came to the event and showed their support.

    Thank you Sheriff Sollie, Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun, as well as others that got dunked in the dunking booth for the cause. Thank you to the Car Show participants. The cars, trucks and motorcycles brought back a lot of good memories.     The love and support that was shown to me, as well as to Thomas was overwhelming. Thank you my brothers and sisters in law enforcement, my co-workers, my friends, and my family. I cannot say thank you enough for all of the hard work that went into this event and for the love and support all have shown to me.

    My kids and grandkids have always said that we don’t go anywhere without someone knowing me or me knowing someone. It looks like they are right judging from the turnout at this event.

    My two “sons” Eddie and Freddie said that I once told them during their boxing years, “When you think you are tired and knocked down, get up, pull up your trunks, dust them off and go one more round!”

    So many people have mentioned that they are praying for me. Thank you all for prayers as they work wonders. Please continue to remember me and Thomas in your prayers.  

Thank you again!

Hubert “Sarge” Rivers

New federal data show Mississippi received 179 unaccompanied children caught at the U.S. border this year. Gov. Phil Bryant wrote to President Barack Obama demanding the president pre-announce plans to send immigrants to Mississippi, saying Mississippi would block transports. Do you agree with Bryant?
