A portion of East Washington Street was closed on Saturday for the third annual Public Safety Awareness First Responders Day. The main event is the pumper pull, a fundraiser for the Lawrence County Fire Academy, in which teams are required to pull a firetruck 37 feet. Winners are calculated by the gross weight of the team multiplied by the number of seconds it takes for them to pull the distance. The lowest score wins.

It’s been a unique week on the marriage front. Actress Jodie Foster married her longtime girlfriend, while a lesbian trio that wed last year, who bill themselves as a “throuple,” have announced they are expecting. What’s your take on alternative unions?

I’m against it. I believe in one man, one woman.
I’m OK with it. As long as they’re adults, they can marry whoever they want.
A lesbian “throuple?” Really? SMH.
