There’s something good here . . .
It’s hotter than the hinges of hell out there, but don’t let the high temperature roast your civility. Let someone with just a few items go first in the checkout line. Slow down and let a car pull into traffic ahead of you. Say please and thank you. Be considerate. Manners still matter.

There’s something good here . . .
A man gives decades of his time and talent to serve an organization that oversees rural water development and management. How we handle this precious natural resource is critical to the future of our way of life. Many thanks to Clyde Brewer who recently stepped down from his spot on the Cornersville Water Board. Watch the News-Telegram for Brewer’s story.

There’s something good here . . .

When Sue Ann Johnson and I talk about music, she reminds me of her love of mega-start Johnny Mathis, who was born in Gilmer. Through the years, I’ve contacted Mathis’ management team for an interview, but to no avail.

As luck would have it, Mathis, whose 1959 cover of “Misty” is one of the most romantic love songs of all time, has a two-night gig at the Meyerson in Dallas on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 20 and 21.

Tickets are from $50-$125 and are on sale now at www.dallassymphony.com.

Thanks to Chris Shull, the Meyerson’s manager of publications, Benny and Sue Ann will be sitting with Carol Allen and me for the Saturday performance.

Chris is also making arrangements for a phone interview with the singer. If Mathis will agree, I’m going to hand the phone to Sue Ann so she can ask him a question.

Watch upcoming editions of your News-Telegram for details. This is going to be such fun.
