Miller Grove News for April 25, 2012

Who could believe that there are just 20 some-odd days of school left this year? Graduation is gradually creeping up on us, and last week the school released the names of the students who have received top honors in the senior class. Holly Miller was named Valedictorian and Wesley Potts Salutatorian. Congratulations to both of them on their achievements. Being salutatorian, Wesley is following in his grandmother’s footsteps. Marsha (Garmon) Potts was salutatorian of the 1968 graduating class at MGHS.

Our MG Hornets ruled the baseball diamond Monday at “The Bluff.” Patrick Covington struck out several batters. The score stayed tied for several innings, but the Hornets finally prevailed. Our catcher, Ryan Dougan, made a quick play by throwing a ball from home plate to second base which put another Sulphur Bluff runner out. Colten Baylus, playing in left field, jumped and caught a ball flying through the air during the last inning, and shortstop Quinten Stovall quickly snagged a fly ball more than once during the game. MG’s next game will be Friday at “The Grove” against Cumby. The last time we played Cumby we only lost by one run, so it should be a good game.

The FFA Stew and Auction was a hit once again this year with net sales exceeding $9,000. I saw several familiar faces in the crowd from all across the county, not just the Miller Grove area. And, as Glen George said, “I believe that was the best stew we’ve ever had!” After cooking two wash pots full of chicken stew and one full of beef, there were minimal leftovers. The FFA Chapter would like to thank Lewis Russell for volunteering his time to prepare the stew and Cole Middleton for being the auctioneer for the night.

Happy birthday this week to Shannon Heath on April 24, Derick Petty and Savanna Darrow (my niece) on April 25, Mary Lou Akins on April 26, and Fred Moseley Jr. on April 28.

Remember, if you have any family buried in the Miller Grove Cemetery, the Memorial Day services are coming up on Saturday, May 5. The morning services will begin at 10:30 a.m.

As you travel the highways and byways, don’t forget that all roads lead home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
