It is amazing how quickly stories now travel through both the printed version and the internet.
Rector is on the international map as a consequence of Rolling Stones lead guitarist Keith Richards donating a signed guitar to be auctioned to benefit the Rector High School Helping Hands Foundation.
A story about how this is all developing will be in this week's edition of the Clay County Democrat.
The donation was made through the efforts of Rector native Bill Carter, who earlier in his career managed the Rolling Stones.
Rector has always been a community of giving people, helping in all types of local charity projects. It is great how Bill Carter and other Rector natives are stepping up to the plate to help their hometown.
