Not quite two months after Springfield Baptist Church’s bell tower was destroyed in a bizarre traffic accident, it’s back in business. Church leaders and deacons gathered Friday to commemorate their restored tower (L) which went down July 19 (above) when an SUV missed the Plum-Third corner and crashed into the structure. From left are Billy Ray Locklin, James Banks, Henry Miller, Rev. S. L. Ross (pastor), Elias Green, Jesse Johnson, J. C. Washington (restoration contractor) and Danny Mitchell. Not pictured, Tommy Cashaw, Sammy Ford. The 1886 church bell was not damaged and was installed in the new tower. 6p1.jpg
