Quick Response of Neighbors & Firefighters Saves Talmage Church

Quick Response of Neighbors & Firefighters Saves Talmage Church

The quick response of three neighbors living near the Zion United Church of Christ in Talmage probably saved the church from total destruction as lightning struck the west corner of the church sending flames up the side of the building during a thunderstorm between 11 and 11:30 p.m., on Saturday night, September 21st. The lightning burned a hole in a propane gas pipe located on the exterior of the church which caused the flames to shoot up the southwest corner of the church’s exterior wall. The flames then jumped from the steel exterior wall to the steel roof of the church.

Progress on New Sterling Community Center

Progress on New Sterling Community Center

Sterling residents as well as visitors from other communities driving through downtown Sterling have probably noticed that construction on the exterior of the new Sterling Community Center is almost completed, with the exception of installing new windows. Windows are expected to be done early in October.

The Sterling Community Association is hoping to have the Community Center open to the public by Spring/Summer 2020. According to Mandy Goracke, a Sterling Community Association member and officer, there were definitely delays in construction because of the amount of rain received in the Sterling area this year.

The new Sterling Community Center is a 60’ x 140’ building that includes a full kitchen, meeting room, restrooms, an event room with a stage that will also have the functionality for a basketball and volleyball court as needed.
