Welcome to 2009 everyone! For me, the year has been a slow start … but I’m not complaining! We ate our helping of black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day,so maybe that has ensured a little bit of luck for us throughout the year.
We have had a few people in the community on the sick list. One lady I know fell going into her front door and had to go to the emergency room for a couple of stitches. Another young man was helping his father do some fencing in their pasture when the barbed wire broke and hit his chin and cut it open, also requiring stitches. Several of the folks have had sniffles and the usual sinus and allergy junk that comes with the changing of the weather.
Something new to the community is that the First Baptist Church on FM 275 is going to be an Angel Food Ministries site. Churches in Lone Oak and Sulphur Springs have been Angel Food sites for a few years now. For more information, please contact one of the church members. If they can’t answer your questions, I’m sure they can direct you to the appropriate person.
I haven’t officially heard if the fire department’s building is finished, but when I passed there yesterday it looked pretty well completed on the outside. It really looks great. The guys have put out a lot of effort on this project. If you happen to see one of them while you are out and about, tell them how much you appreciate them. Remember, when you say “volunteer” that means they are donating their time for free to help others. They deserve a pat on the back.
Happy birthday to Bobby “Rabbit” Wright and Blake McGowan on Jan. 5, Madison Darrow on Jan. 6, Patsy (Johnson) Hallman on Jan. 9, and Chris Miller, T.S. Lamb and Phyllis (Renshaw) Haywood on Jan. 10.
Happy anniversary to my uncle and aunt, James and Margaret Ragan, on Jan. 5. They will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary Saturday with a come-and-go reception at Brashear Baptist Church fellowship hall. They were married in 1959 in the Divide community by Bro. Hammonds (Bro. Harace Hammonds’ father). They lived in Center Point for several years before moving to the Liberty community.
I have gotten a little bit of feedback from the 1906 Miller Grove news column that I added last week. Mr. Jim Burns called and told me that he remembered nearly everyone that was mentioned in that news column.
