School days! School days! School days are fast approaching. Please take note of all of the school zones and drive safely through them. Be careful, especially around the new Middle School.

Get ready for our Back to School Clothes Drive at First United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs. We will be selling clothes, shoes, coats, backpacks and other miscellaneous items for only 25 cents. That's right — only 25 cents. The place is the Family Life Center across from the Post Office, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. The doors will close at exactly 12 p.m. Come and help out your budget and a good cause. All of the monies are being used to help out missions around Sulphur Springs. *We will stop accepting clothes on Friday morning.
    The weather has really pulled one on us this summer. We had some rain to start out the summer but we are now in desperate need of rain. The trees are even looking more distressed — at least those that survived after last year. There are more leaves on the ground in August which you usually see in October. The rain is much needed for foundations too. Our foundation has pulled away from the ground. You might lose something along the gap if you are not careful. Take time to water your foundation before it is too late. Thank goodness for this rain! Not sure if it is measurable, but we will take all we can get.
    I hope everyone in Hopkins County knows about the wonderful Senior Citizens Center we have. Karon Weatherman is always looking for ways to give you (seniors) something to keep you busy. She offers bingo, exercise, crochet classes, 42, bridge, ceramics and now something new — singing with Arb Owen on Tuesday mornings. So come and sing with Arb and then eat a good meal for only $2. You can't go wrong.
    Football time is upon us again. Our family is pumped. The Wildcats begin their 2012 season this week. They will scrimmage Terrell on Friday evening in Terrell. Let's go Wildcats! A big hooray goes out to the band, cheerleaders, and drill team. I know they have been working hard for the new year. Can't wait!
    I want to thank the lady who called and told me the bug problem was with aphids. I wish she had given me her name so I could recognize her in my article. Anyway, thank you for your information.
    News is light this week, but keep calling — I love to hear from all of you. Be kind wherever you go this week and you will reap the many blessings.
