LOCAL NEWS — It’s a community trend that started in Texas and is now sweeping across Moore County. In an effort to show hope and assurance to the community each night at 8:20 p.m. school officials will turn on the lights at the softball and baseball field. Why 8:20 p.m. to be exact? Because in military time, that’s 2020 – a nod to our MCHS senior class.

The lights will stay on for 20 minutes and the school systems invites the community to join in by turning on the their porch lights at the same time.

“We as a community need to let our kids know we are here for them,” said Director of Schools Chad Moorehead. •
