Good luck to those of you who have made New Year’s resolutions for yourselves. I hope that you are able keep them this year. Personally, I don’t make them for myself anymore. I usually end up keeping the resolution for a week or two and then I’m right back to my old habits.
Not much news in the community this week. Miller Grove school had a teacher’s work day on Monday, Jan. 6 and classes for the second semester began on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
I have noticed going down FM 275 to Cumby that Ryan Claxton and his wife are building a new home. I know it will be very nice when it is finished.
