Rule #73 in Lamar Alexander's Little Plaid Book says, "Walk in Parades." Rule #74, "If it is the Mule Day parade, walk at the front."  Last Saturday, Lamar and boys scouts from Maury, Marshall, Perry, and Lewis counties did just that at this year’s Mule Day Parade in Columbia.  You can find photos from the parade and other Mule Day events on our Facebook page. Special thanks to the Duck River District Boys Scouts for walking with Lamar. 
Last Saturday, Lamar also spoke at the Tipton County Republican Party Reagan Day Dinner. A full house of Tipton County Republicans who are fired up for a Republican victory in 2014 welcomed Lamar, Congressman Stephen Fincher, Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris, and State Representatives Debra Moody and Barrett Rich to Munford.
