There’s something good here . . .
    The Bright Star League of Cultural Arts has made great strides in the past month. The group now has a set of bylaws, committee assignments and should be filing the paperwork necessary to qualify for 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service.

    The league was created to bring Hopkins County’s diverse artistic efforts together, including music, dance, theater, fine art and writing.
    Having everyone on the same page, pulling together to highlight the arts, will be a great thing. It has worked in other cities. It can work here.
    Some great ideas are coming from the group and you can be part of it. Anyone interested in joining this exciting effort should contact Shane Shepard, director of community development, at 903-885-7541 or Pam Elliott at 903-885-1080.

    Hopkins County has once again rallied to help one of its own. 2013 Sulphur Springs High School graduate Molly Millsap recently spent three weeks in the hospital with life-threatening blood clots. The former Dairy Festival Queen and mascot Wally the Wildcat had three surgeries. Now, she’s home and working to build her strength back. Businesses are holding “Support Molly” days, donating a portion of their proceeds to a fund established to defray medical expenses. Signs and t-shirts are being sold, too.

    One of my Facebook friends posted a photo of SSMS National Junior Honor Society members who “stood for two hours smiling and helping incoming 6th graders find their way to classrooms, lunch lines, library, gym, band hall and counseling center during orientation and schedule pick-up Thursday night. Thanks to Johnny Wells and his students.”
    What a great thing to do. Bravo!

    A “Glow Out” is planned tonight on the downtown square. It’s for all Hopkins County students from 7th through 12th grades. It’s a time for students to “get together and have fun before school starts,” according to one of the event’s organizers, Mia Millsap. The action begins about 8:30 p.m. and will conclude at 11 p.m. Food and drink will be available from Little Caesar’s Pizza. Bring a glow stick. There will face painting, music and a brief program presented by Abby Tipps.
    Sounds like a good time.
