An estimated 500 people united at Bedias Baptist Church this past Friday to say their goodbyes to Precinct 1 Commissioner Miles "J.R." Green Jr. of Bedias, who had been battling cancer over the past year and also recently incurred blood clots. Volunteer firefighters from Bedias, Shiro and Whitehall lined the sidewalks with salutes to the fallen commissioner who was a staunch supporter of volunteer organizations. Law enforcement officers and other local officials were also in attendance. County residents praised Green and his wife for going above and beyond to help those in need, as well as welcoming strangers into the friendly county.
