    We want to express our sympathy to the family of Helen Jo Gunter of Cooper. She is survived by two daughters, Debra Wood of Tira, and Barbara Cockrum and husband, Kenneth,

of Birthright; three grandchildren, Stephanie Kennedy and husband, John, of Denton, Heather Williams and husband, Jeff, of Sulphur Springs, and Brad Wood and wife, KayLee, of Sulphur Springs; and 11 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Gunter passed away at home on Saturday night with Barbara, Debra, Stephanie and Heather tending to her. Her funeral service was held at the Church of Christ in Cooper on Tuesday. Debra commented that she and Barbara will miss their sweet mother dearly. Please keep this family in your prayers.
    Nancy Potts reports that she actually “got out of the house" and went to see her uncle, Kenneth Vaden, who lives in Irving. Nancy, her mom Mildred Vaden, and sisters Barbara Davis and Bobbie Underwood from Kentucky, along with Lane-Allton spent the day in Irving visiting Kenneth on Sunday. They all enjoyed dinner together at Jason's Deli. According to Kenneth, Nancy is known as "Stay at Home Nancy" because she never reports anything to the paper for him to read about. So Nancy states, "This is for you, Uncle Kenneth. Enjoy the news, and I will try and do a better job reporting my whereabouts to Jan so you can have something to read. Love ya!"
    Robert and Yvonne Weir met Dacy Campbell and the kids in Commerce on Friday afternoon. Yvonne went home with Dacy to spend the night and then babysat until Mike got home late Saturday afternoon. Robert picked Yvonne up and they went to the Valentine's banquet at First Assembly of God Church in Cooper. On Sunday Robert took Wesley to the Cooper Park to enjoy the great weather.
    Courtney Kaye Loper and Steven Carl DeJarneatt were united in marriage at the Tira Community Center on Saturday, Feb. 16. A large group gathered to witness the happy event. I hope to have more details to share with you next week.
    North Hopkins students and staff will enjoy a holiday this Friday, Feb. 22, and then April 1 will be a regular school day. Also, May 24 will be a student holiday and teacher in-service day. The calendar was revised, due to the state testing schedule.
    Sandra Wester enjoyed lunch at Los Mochis Restaurant in Sulphur Springs on Monday with Wynelle Belz, Catheron and Don Camper, Mary Sue Clayton, Virginia Miller, Gale Milligan and JoNell Willis. They were celebrating JoNell's birthday.
    Morgan Joslin, along with other members of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP), participated in the Annual Color Guard and Drill Team Competition at the Nacogdoches Airport over the weekend.
    Chip and I kept the grandchildren on Thursday night, so that their parents could celebrate with a night out for Valentine's Day, but Tiffany and Laiken were not feeling well that night and Jaidyn and Rylan ended up being sick, too. We are thankful that everyone is on the mend now.
    Chip and I visited my aunt, Doris Moon, and cousin, Ruth Catherine Morrison, last Wednesday night. Ruth Catherine was visiting from Georgia. I also visited my aunt, Rosemary Horn, on Sunday afternoon, while Chip was in a meeting at church.
