Not much to report this week, but I am going to try and catch everyone up on what little information I have received.

Lots of people ready to sell, sell, sell at our upcoming April 2 Brashear Bash; we are getting a lot of response but still want more. We are not sure everyone has heard of our Big Sale. If you know of someone from Brashear, please let them know. We feel that there are a few people who do not take the paper. We hope to visit with Enola one morning on her show to get the word out. We will be putting ads in the paper, too, closer to April 2.

When I mentioned those tease items last week, they were not door prizes but items that will be for sale at my table. These are items that have been donated by people from Brashear and people from Sulphur Springs that want to help. Now for this week’s tease: designer pillows, books, needlepoint pattern books, queen size bedspread and curtains to match. Hope this makes you want to come see all of the goodies.

Remember, too, that there will be a plant swap. I will be bringing plant sprouts, bulbs and seeds. If you have some you want to exchange, come on out to the old ball park downtown Brashear. There will be some booths inside the Brashear Baptist Church’s Family Life Center, and we will also be having a hamburger sack lunch for $5. We are looking for a lot of people to show up for this event, come join us for the fun.

How is everyone’s garden doing? The rain has been good, hasn’t it! We have turnips, spinach, beets and radishes up, and our onions and cabbage are doing well.

The people at St. Philip's Episcopal Church asked me to help them advertise their Community Garden. This is a WONDERFUL program that offers space to grow a garden and it is FREE. The garden plots have free water, and seeds available. The soil has been tilled and it is ready for planting. If you are a gardener or want to LEARN to garden, this is a great way to start. There are people there to help you learn how to plant and take care of your vegetables. To reserve a space or find out more information about becoming a part of the gardening community, ask any member of St. Philip's or call Joe Moore at 903-885-5860.

Note to all of the Senior Citizens from the neighborhood: Saturday, March 26, will be a Casino Night. Mark your calendars for this date. The location will be at the Civic Center with fun for everyone 55 and over. Elvis will be there, too.

Here’s hoping that the Brashear Community Center will be ready soon for everyone to see the the new improvements. We’re still looking for at least one or two more estimates on the reconstruction work that will need to be done. Please call or let me know if you are interested in submitting a bid to do the work.

The motorcade will be going through Sulphur Springs today to take Staff Sgt. Chauncy Mays to Beaty Funeral Home in Winnsboro. Sure hope you had the opportunity to show your respect. My prayers go out to the young man’s family. Please remember all our troops in your prayers.

Well, that is all for this week. I want to remind you all to call me at 903-612-8806; e-mail me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; or just come on by on CR 1119. You can’t miss us we are the ones with a bulldozer and 4 barns.
