First photo: Council members Jay Byars, George Bailey, Larry Hargett, Bill Hearn, Richard Rosebrock, Willie Davis and David Chinnis with a council resolution honoring Rosebrock's 20 years of service.
Second photo: Councilman Bill Hearn offered a tribute to Rosebrock's service on council and challenged every resident to pick up a piece of litter in Rosebrock's honor. But he also teased Rosebrock a bit. Hearn recalled a time the two had been on opposite sides of a debate over buying official County Council shirts. Rosebrock won that round, as the county didn't buy the shirts, but Hearn decided to get the last word, Hearn said. Monday, he gave Rosebrock a shirt with the county's new seal and Rosebrock's name -- the shirt wasn't paid for with taxpayer funds, Hearn emphasized.
