Citizen of the Week

On July 7, three-year-old Chase Lee Pickens wandered away from his home at 11:30 a.m., and by late that afternoon more than a hundred people were searching for him. Willie Alberson and four other men had searched several areas, but Willie felt the need to re-search one particular area. He looked in an abandoned trailer, called Chase's name and the boy responded. Willie put Chase on his shoulders and carried him to his parents.

Everyone involved showed selflessness in interrupting their busy lives to search for Chase, who isn't much younger than Willie's own five-year-old daughter.

Willie Alberson is a hero to everyone in Carroll County.
