The Tallassee Police Department was given a Police Appreciation Lunch by the Living Water Church on Thursday downtown, next to headquarters. I would like to thank each and every one who has shown an outpouring of support," said police chief Jimmy Rodgers. "During these times within our nation, the appreciation and support for law enforcement is slowly diminishing all the while the men and women who wear the badge continue to protect and serve with integrity and honor. That calling is reinforced by the generosity shown by the great citizens of Tallassee. As Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” There is no other place this statement holds true than the city of Tallassee. Again thank you, and always remember, we are here to serve you. May God bless you and your families."

Back in the Day

The Birmingham and Southeastern Railroad "Dinky" transported mail and baggage along the seven-mile track between Tallassee and Milstead. The photo on the left (courtesy of Danny Hendrix) was taken in 1957. Bobby Dennis' submission is to the right. Dennis recalled taking the shuttle to catch the train as a kindergartner in 1961. "We visited the Capital, Archives and History and the first White House of the Confederacy. James Bush drove the Dinky. I rode in his lap with the control stick," he wrote.
