I got a call from Jennifer Caudle wanting everyone to get their 911 numbers on their house and mailboxes. This is important for first responders, firemen and emergency medical services personnel to know how to find you. If you are unable to get your numbers posted where they can be seen, please call me and I will let the necessary people know. The Brashear volunteer firemen are currently assembling a Brashear directory so they can find you when there is a call. Thanks.

Tuesday night there was the public meeting concerning the Post Office cutting service hours. They had sent out over 500 surveys with only 140 returned. Sad response. The one thing I heard is that people want the Post Office to stay opened. So if the hours are cut, at least be accessible to people who go to work outside of Brashear. The question was brought up about who we can appeal to. No one basically was the answer. The man leading the discussion said if you wanted to protest the closing to write your congressman. But it was also said, if we would use the Post Office more then that would increase revenue which then would encourage them to return it to normal hours. No answer was really reached.

How is everyone enjoying this wind? Hope your shingles are staying on, tin is staying on barns, and dead trees are not dropping on your house. Nearly all of those have happened to us. This weather has been a roller coaster. Spring starts on Wednesday and I hope the temperature reflects that.

There is still a need for houses to be painted for the work camp this summer. If you house needs painting and you think you might meet the criteria, please let me know and I will direct you to the right people. This is such a great cause for our community and the youth of Sulphur Springs and the area. We also have several youth groups from out of town churches for the youth. It is an amazing endeavor. If you would like to volunteer, there are a lot of jobs for all ages.

Garden news is not much happening right now. We had 1.5 inches of rain and you know that helped. Our neighboring pastures were fertilized right before that rain and they are looking good.

Please remember the free library up at The Ol' Store. Stop by and see if there is anything of interest you might enjoy. TV is so bad lately that books are the best thing going.

Have to wish my son, Matt Young, happy birthday and my granddaughter, Sable Erdmier, Happy birthday on Friday. Love you both.
