There’s something good here . . .
Several Lake Fork fisherman helped my son when one of the wheels on his trailer had issues last Saturday. Two of them noticed the problem and helped him remove the tire and the hub assembly. Three others found a spare assembly on the neck of their trailer, offered it to him and refused payment. They just wanted the part returned once  a new one was installed. The Good Samaritans were Bentley Jones, David Jones and Tye Jones, all from Longview. Who says there is no kindness left in today’s world?

Make sure you read about the outstanding graduates of all the local and county classes of 2011. These kids have big hopes and dreams. Our future’s in good hands.

Hopkins County Relay for Life didn’t quite meet their financial goal this year, but they ran a good race and honored their loved ones, past and present.

If you love the music of the 1950s and 1960s, then mark your calendar for Friday, June 10. The great girl group, Shake, Rattle & Roll is coming to town. They’ll be at Sulphur Springs Auction House. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and will also feature Josh Davis, Sulphur Springs’ own Elvis tribute artist. I’ve had the opportunity to work with SR&R and found them to be first-class entertainers. Their cover of “Sincerely” alone is worth the $12 ticket price. See you there.

Thanks to the Friends of the Sulphur Springs Library for honoring my contributions to the arts. Having my family and close friends there made it so special. Thanks to Trice and Pat Lawrence for putting the evening together and also to Mayor Gary Spraggins, County Judge Chris Brown, Carol Allen, Enola Gay Mathews and Kurt Bittner for making the night so much fun. And thanks to the people who said such kind things and Echo Publishing for the lovely flowers. A special thanks to authors who donated books for door prizes. It was especially satisfying to give an autographed copy of Alexander McCall Smith's latest book in the "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" to Don Fausett. His late wife, Laurie, loved the sweet, gentle stories about Precious Ramotswe's life in Botswana.

It’s Buffett time in Frisco. The world’s richest beach bum and his band, The Coral Reefers, are coming to town Saturday night. Jimmy seems to have bounced back from the awful face plant he did off an Australian stage earlier this year. My son and I are headed to the Pizza Hut Park for a two-day tailgate. Parrotheads from all over the country will be there to “party with a purpose” as we raise money for charity. We’ll be at the Dr. Pepper pavilion if you want to join us. It feels good to do good.

Greetings from Montana! I am one of Don and Laurie Fausett's four kids, and I want to thank you for your special tribute to my mother. It's very heartwarming to know that she impacted people there in Sulphur Springs. And what a lively site this is! I'll need to get out and about more the next time I visit.
