No election will be necessary for the Tira City Council. Incumbents Sandra Wester and Malcolm Joslin were the only candidates to file for the two spots.

J.R. and Donna Durst traveled on Saturday to Finley, Oklahoma to visit with Amy, Kyle, and Cooper Kitchens. Donna reports, "We went to Messer, Okla., to Fish Tales for a delicious buffet. We later shopped at Stages and, of course, Wal-Mart."

On the North Hopkins School March calendar for this week, Rob Stanley and his Cross X Debaters traveled to Austin for the state meet (I don't know the results, yet). The softball team was scheduled to play in Dodd City on Tuesday and is scheduled to play Commerce at North Hopkins on Thursday and travel to Sulphur Bluff on March 23rd. The JV softball team is scheduled to play Miller Grove, and the baseball team will play Campbell — both are home games next Tuesday — and the junior high boys will compete in the Mount Vernon track meet that day. North Hopkins will also participate in the One-Act Play competition in Mount Pleasant on Wednesday, March 24.

Our son, Delayne Vaughn, spent the weekend with us. Delayne, a teacher in Waco ISD, was on Spring Break last week. He spent the first part of his break sightseeing in New York City. On Friday night, Malcolm, Tiffany, Landon, Morgan, Kenden, and Jaidyn Joslin joined us in Paris for dinner at the Fish Fry and we were all together for lunch on Sunday before Delayne returned to Waco. Chip and I took advantage of the beautiful weather on Sunday afternoon with a bicycle ride. Doctor's Creek, at Cooper Lake State Park, was almost filled to capacity with campers.

Chip and I took Morgan and Kenden Joslin to Oklahoma on Tuesday (Landon had other plans for the day). We stopped by the Pushmataha County Park and Clayton Lake on the way to Robbers Cave, where we spent the afternoon climbing on the rocks. We had a great day — except for our collision with the deer that ran into the road! We were thankful that we were not injured and the van was still drivable.

I guess it was another slow week in Tira. Even after begging for news, I didn't have much to report. I hope to have more next week.
