Tira volunteer fire chief Malcolm Joslin reported that the department has been busy responding to several fire calls in the past few weeks.

Tommy and Patti Wiebold traveled to their deer lease in Coleman County, Texas for a dove hunt over the weekend and were joined by Tommy’s brother, Kevin, and some other friends. Patti says that they “had a good and successful hunt despite the heat on Sunday afternoon.” They returned home on Sunday night and enjoyed the Labor Day holiday at home. Mick and Linda Petty hosted a Labor Day lunch Monday. Those attending were their son, James Humphrey and grandkids Reagan and Hesston Humphrey of Sulphur Springs; Linda’s mom, Fay Burns of Sulphur Springs; Rick and Judy Petty of Tira; Ronnie, Amy, Mitchell and Macy Green of Cooper; and Billy Joe Clayton of Tira.

Mick, James, Hesston, Rick and Mitchell went dove hunting in Clarksville Sunday evening. They got lots of doves and had a great time. Betty Lawson went to the Lake of the Pines on Monday and enjoyed a cook-out with friends in celebration of the Labor Day holiday.

Floyd and Martha Payton enjoyed a weekend visit from their son Brad and Virginia Payton from Keller. They were in Pecan Gap Saturday evening for fish from Gentle Ben’s, then drove on west to see the countryside. Martha reports, “It was dry in that area also.” They returned home on Sunday afternoon.

Morgan Joslin, along with many other North Hopkins athletes, competed in the Valley View Invitational Cross Country Meet on Saturday. Of the North Hopkins Junior High boys runners, Morgan came in third. Their team took sixth place in the event. Tiffany, Jaidyn and I were there to cheer him on. After the race we went to the Stonebriar Mall in Frisco and did a little shopping and had a late lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. That evening Chip and I attended the wedding of Dustin Weir and Natalie Kuffner at Heritage Park in Sulphur Springs. The wedding, in the little chapel, was beautiful and the weather was great for the outdoor reception. Dustin is the son of Robert and Yvonne Weir.

Linda Ellen Vaughn of Dallas spent a couple of nights, over the holiday weekend, with Tim and Lori Vaughn. She visited other family members while here. She came to our house and visited for a little while on Sunday afternoon.
