JONES CREEK — Aldermen recognized a dozen teenagers as hometown heroes for helping clean up the village after Hurricane Nicholas.

“The next day after it blew through, we had several roads that were not passable and people’s yards were just a disaster area that they couldn’t clean up for themselves,” Marshal William Tidwell said during Tuesday’s council meeting. “So it’s remarkable we had a lot of volunteers that took time out of their day to clean up their yards and other people’s yard and clear roads.”
