YOW Named Chief of Police in Madill

By Molly Raley

A hometown man has officially taken the reins of the Madill Police Department as Chief of Police.

On Friday, June 1, exactly 26 years to the day after being hired at the MPD, Madill City Manager James Fullingim officially promoted Yow to Chief of Police.

“We took applications, and after background checks I narrowed it down to Donald and another individual,” Fullingim said. “After the interviews, I knew that Donald was the one that we needed to hire.”

The Chief of Police position was left vacant after Fullingim accepted the City Manager’s chair in early November 2017. Yow was then announced as Interim Chief of Police, and the selection process began. According to Fullingim, Yow will continue the line of open communication that was set in place years ago, and will look to be community involved.

Because of Walmart the Dog

By Tina Firquain

The book is for young children and the movie for families, but it is also a story that teaches the lesson of kindness and compassion.

That lesson is one that many people usually need reminding of. Luckily Madill and even all of Marshall County, have been witness to the town’s very own Winn-Dixie story.
