There’s something good here . . .

If you can carry a tune and are looking for some really great fellowship and the chance to make an artistic contribution to your area, Northeast Texas Choral Society is holding auditions for their fall semester on Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon in the choir room at First United Methodist Church. Director Carol Allen says there’s no need to prepare special music for the tryout. “Just come and sing,”  she said. Not many small towns like ours have a community chorus. And, I’m willing to bet very few have a group as talented and dedicated as ours.

Their Christmas show, “Believe,” is set for the first weekend in December, so go ahead and mark your calendars.

There’s something good here . . .

I’m a sucker for a happy ending  – like the one experienced by the former plow horse-turned jumping champion called Snowman. “The Eighty Dollar Champion,” a book chronicling Snowman’s miraculous journey from a kill truck bound for the slaughter house to the show ring at Madison Square Gardens, is generating a lot of buzz.

For every Snowman, however, there seems to be a sad story. Take the plight of the horses found near Winnsboro Monday. They were rescued by True Blue Animal Rescue out of Brenham.

The rescue effort moved Sue Ann Johnson so much that she decided to open her pasture to one of the horses, but she didn’t stop there. She contacted Moose Morgan at Star Country Radio, who agreed to auction off the tickets Johnson won Monday in the News-Telegram’s “Romantic Evening” contest. Congratulations to Vanessa Blount for the winning bid of $250. A total of $600 was raised for the True Blue rescue project.

It feels good to do good.

I had the opportunity to visit with Dr. Temple Grandin on the phone this week. She was in the Philadelphia airport on her way to a speaking engagement in South Carolina.

Dr. Grandin is coming to Hopkins County on Oct. 5 and 6.

She was utterly charming, without frills or pretense.

Watch upcoming editions of your News-Telegram for my interview with this amazing woman.

I’ve recently discovered a great series written by Bill Pronzini. The 35 volumes, called the Nameless Detective, follow a middle-aged investigator who lives in San Francisco and does his best to help his clients find their missing loved ones, solve a murder or recover a lost fortune. Reading the slim books is a great way to pass these hot August nights.
