Today, I would like to stop and ask everyone did they know how lucky we are after the big ice storm this past weekend. I traveled just a few miles and wow. We bit the bullet and did not get it bad at all compared to just Cumby and further west. Thank you, Lord.

Monday, the world lost a great man whose name is synonymous with Sulphur Springs, Bill Bradford. This man was Mr. Sulphur Springs. I felt my day did not start out right without listening to KSST. Mr. Bradford was a man for the ages. He brought so much to the world and now he has left us to a better place. Our sincere sympathies to his family on their loss Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County has lost a true legend. Thank you, Mr. Bradford, for all you did for the community.

Prayers are needed for Barbara Stewart. I heard she is now in the Mother Francis Hospital in Tyler. Please take a moment to remember her and her family.

I love living in this area. Sunday, I saw a real example of people coming together to make something work. A bunch of amazing young women came together to make the “Not Dallas Marathon” a success. They worked together with a short time window to make a full marathon and a half marathon a reality here in our small town. For those who do not know that is no easy task with all of the logistics involved. We have some wonderful people here in our area; and I would like to say I am so impressed by all that you did.

Now, for Brashear and our own bakery. Idzibitsy Bakery wants you to mark Saturday on your calendar! We are going to be having our holiday open house with samples, prizes and more! Come stop by and see us while out and about! Located right at the Exit 116 west, on the south side of the Interstate.

I want to invite all of the Brashear women who want to start a new way of life to the P31 Blast that will be Dec. 30 through Jan. 3. The price will be $25 and we will work out every night. The money will be going to a worthy cause in our area. So I would like to have one and all come out and see what all of the fun is about. Time is 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and we will be in the Brashear Baptist Church Family Life Building.

Trying to get warm. It has been a long time since we have had so many cold days in a row. Love it but I am ready for a warm up real soon. So glad to see Sharon’s Bar-B-Que was able to open up. Love that barbecue.

I would also like to congratulate Kayla Phillips on her graduating from A&M Commerce and her new job at Sulphur Springs High School. I know Michael and Karen are very excited. Way to go Kayla.

I have just about used up all of my news but I want to remind each and everyone of you this is a special time of year. Please take time to help out those that are not as fortunate. They are food sacks at Brookshire’s, and there are many other needs around our area.

Don’t forget to call me at 903.612.8806; email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; or some on by CR 1119 for a visit. We will have the fireplace a blazing.
