With all the exciting things happening around Hopkins County, we must not forget the upcoming 40th Anniversary Hopkins County Fall Festival beginning on Sept. 12. Looks like it is going to be a long hot summer in Texas and outdoor activity will be challenging. Gas prices are soaring. There is a mortgage crisis and a soft economy to consider.
