A settlement was reached between the Gilmer County Commission and the Gilmer County Landmarks Commission during a hearing in Gilmer County Circuit Court.

The settlement, reached on Jan. 3, will allow the historic Poor Farm building to be destroyed and a bronze plaque be placed that will state that the Poor Farm was there and its significance.

After the hearing, Gilmer County Landmarks Commission President Jim Bailey went to the Gilmer County Commission meeting, that was still in session, and asked that he be allowed to go inside the building and remove some artifacts and take some pictures of the building. The commissioners agreed to both requests.

Bailey offered to “kick in” for the cost of the plaque, but the commissioners had already voted to spend up to $2,000 on a bronze plaque to commemorate the building and the farm.

Bailey said he would prefer that the historic marker be placed near the road. Gilmer County Commission President Brian Kennedy agreed that he thought that's where the plaque should be placed.

Bailey informed the commission that he is going to “have to sell his little car to pay legal fees.” Kennedy said ,”Jim, I hate that you spent your personal money on this.”

Kennedy also asked Bailey to get back to the commissioners with the wording for the marker.

Project Warm Hands is a project that was founded in 2012 during a snowy Christmas Parade. There were children waiting in line to see Santa to receive some candy and a toy. Some of these children were so cold that their hands were red. With this weighing heavy on my heart, I knew I had to do something. God gave me a vision of gloves for these children. From that day forward, I, along with big-hearted people like you, have been collecting gloves to cover those little fingers.

If you would like to help keep a child's little fingers warm during the cold weather this year, please give your donation of gloves or a monetary donation to help purchase gloves. Project Warm Hands wants to thank you for caring and the children and you will be blessed by your generosity.

God Bless You for having a Big Heart!
