Miller Grove News for June 20, 2012

E-mail Print PDF
Well, this week I have several things to write about. You just never know in Miller Grove when and where you will find news to report.

I hope all of the fathers out there had a great day on Father’s Day Sunday. My mom, my brother’s family, and I took my dad out to eat at Pizza Inn after church. That was about the extent of our Father’s Day activities.

I would like to send my condolences out to the family of Patsy Petty. I know several of you probably knew her. Patsy lived in Cumby and went to church in Brashear. Patsy passed away June 11 and her funeral was Thursday, June 14. She was one of the sweetest ladies I could ever hope to know. She was just one of those people that you enjoy being around because she was always so positive, so easy going, and above everything else she was a very devoted Christian. When you would talk to Patsy you couldn’t help but notice that she had a glow about her. When she would smile it was so sincere that you knew the glow was coming from her love for the Lord and her genuine love for everyone she was around. She will be missed very much by her family and many friends.

Saturday afternoon, I went to Hunt Regional Hospital in Greenville to visit a new addition to my family. My cousin, Callie (Smith) Glover, delivered a baby girl on Friday, June 15. Little Quinn Coraline Glover was born at 12 p.m. and weighed 7 pounds and 6 ounces. She was 20 1/2 inches long. Mother, dad (Corey Glover) and baby are all home now and doing well. Barry and Julie Smith of the South Liberty community are the proud grandparents. Congratulations Callie and Corey!

Monday night, the school board accepted Mrs. Linda Bailey’s letter of resignation as elementary principal. She has accepted a job at Greenville ISD for next year. She and husband, Mike, live in Greenville so I know it is more economical for her. With Mrs. Bailey’s resignation I know that we have lost a lady whose heart is truly in this business for the kids. That, folks, is hard to find these days. Lots of people can teach, but there are only a very few lucky people that can touch a student’s life. At the end of this year, Mrs. Bailey completed her 10th year of employment with MGISD. Thank you, Mrs. Bailey, for all of your dedication to the school.

Miller Grove First Baptist Church will be having a “Meet and Greet” for the community on Saturday, June 23. Anyone and everyone is invited to come and fellowship. They will serve hamburgers, hot dogs and all of the fixings. They will begin serving at 11 a.m.

Happy birthday this week to Ed Franks on June 17, Mary Lynn Ferguson on June 19, Jean Wren on June 20, Varrell Petty on June. 21 and Barbara (Weaver) Stewart on June 23.

Happy 45th anniversary to Billy and Carol (Akins) Dunn on June 17. I can’t believe they have been married that long. They both look so young for their age. I would also like to send out a happy anniversary wish to Patrick and Sherry (Ragan) Dial for their 10th anniversary on June 21.

Colten Baylus stopped by my house the other day and he told me about going fishing over the weekend at lake Tawakoni. He said he was “noodling” for fish and caught a 35-pound catfish. It was a monster. I had never heard of noodling. He said instead of using a pole, you stick your hand down in the water and the fish bites it and you pull the fish up out of the water. Sounds a little scary to me. I don’t think I want a big old fish biting my hand. My luck, I would be like Jonah in the Bible and the fish would end up swallowing me, I’m so little and skinny!

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 .
