The Tira City Council voted to cancel the May 9 election as no seats are opposed. Floyd Payton was the only person to sign up to fill the position of mayor, which is currently held by John Hadley, who announced that he would not be running for another term. Joyce Dodd, incumbent, and Janie Lewis filed as candidates for the two open seats on the council.

J.R. and Donna Durst had company on Saturday. Donna's mother, Jo Hasty, and her sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Larry Fitzhugh, all from Athens, spent the day with them, once again to see Joseph Durst, but also to check on J.R. They celebrated Larry's birthday by eating out and shopping at Danna's. Later in the day they visited with Casey, Tiffany and Joseph, and J.R. cooked dinner for everybody. Donna says, “It was a fun day!”

Yvonne and Robert Weir spent Tuesday evening playing dominoes and having dinner with Helen Weir, Alice Hall, Dustin Weir and Natalie Kuffner. Robert attended a Merle Haggard concert with Dustin in Dallas on Thursday.

The North Hopkins Scholarship Foundation dinner and auction is scheduled for Saturday, March 28. Tickets are available from foundation members and at North Hopkins School. Make plans to attend and support the college-bound students.

Chip and I took our grandsons Landon, Morgan, and Kenden Joslin, and two of their friends, James Loper of Tira and Mason Rogers of Princeton, to Oklahoma yesterday. We stopped at Pushmataha Park near Antlers to stretch our legs, and the boys (including Chip) played on the swinging bridge and on the creek banks while I took pictures. We enjoyed a picnic at Clayton Lake and then went to Robbers Cave State Park, where we all enjoyed seeing the caves and climbing on the rocks. We stopped in Paris and ate at the Fish Fry on the way home. We saw Jimmy and Joyce Goldsmith there, too.

I picked Chip up at the airport last Wednesday and welcomed him home to the cold, wet weather. He had been in West Virginia and Pennsylvania working in the gas fields. He said the weather there was much nicer when he left than our weather last week. Our son, Delayne Vaughn of Waco, met us near the airport, and we enjoyed a late lunch together after Chip encountered delays on both legs of his flight.
