Boxing Club Gets Startup $$

Obie Beard of the Bolivar-Hardeman County Boxing Club received a $10,000 check on behalf of the county from Hardeman County Mayor Jimmy Sain and Hardeman County Sheriff John Doolen to help start the program at the former Hardeman County Jail Annex in East Bolivar.
Beard, who ran the Jackson Boxing Club for many years, hopes to be open in Bolivar in late July. Pictured with Beard, Sain, and Doolen are Bolivar City Councilman Jonathan Joy and Aubrey Beard.
