Rain Rain and more rain. We so need it. I just asked Tom how many days have we seen the sun this week. Not many but it is okay. If you happen to see my friend, Chuck King, be sure to wish him a Happy Birthday. I will be a good friend and not put his age in the paper since we are the same age today. Christmas is fast approaching and I wanted to say Merry Christmas to all of my friends here in Hopkins County. This season will be hard...

So sorry I have missed sending in my news lately. Change is hard sometimes. Turning in my article on Thursday evening instead of Tuesday makes me think a little. Thanks to everyone for being patient with me. I sure hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week. The weather was just perfect. Not too cool and certainly not too warm. Brashear Free Library is alive and doing well. I know that sounds funny but we are so excited...

I hope this finds everyone warm and toasty. It seems that Old Man Winter has a surprise for us this week. Cold, colder, and coldest weather so far this year. I would like to ask if anyone has any old coats (male) to please take them to the Homeless Veteran Center on College and Jackson Street. They have some people who could use them. ICAN is also having a coat drive. We do not want anyone to be cold if it can be helped. There were...

Elections are over and I say good! Busy day yesterday with the election and so glad so many of you found us at the Brashear Baptist Church. I enjoyed seeing some familiar faces and some new faces. We had a great turnout even though the weather wasn’t conducive to getting out to vote. Thank you for taking the time to vote. So sad to hear that the Old Store in Brashear has closed. I will miss seeing Amanda’s smiling face and also will...

It’s another beautiful morning in God’s country. Hope you didn’t miss it. Cooler weather is on tap for the next few days. I think that maybe 90 degree days are gone and surely the upper 80’s are gone too until next year. Sure hate we missed out on the rain. Teresa called me this morning and wanted to say thank you to everyone who came to her mother’s surprise party on Saturday. She also wanted to thank the church for the use of their...

This is such a great place to live. East Texas in the fall, a true fall that is, is beautiful. The cooler mornings are great. I would love that it will not hit 90 again until next May or June. Praying for that to happen. Busy times are upon us here in Hopkins County with the 45th Annual Stew Fest. The Fall Festival is back on the same date as the Stew Contest and there will be a lot of people in town for this event. I think there...

My question asking about how to get rid of mice has been answered. My friend, Wanda Jenkins said to take Bounce sheets and leave around in places mice like to congregate. She also gave me more uses for these wonderful sheets. Thank you Wanda. Melba Blount, called and told me to get a screwdriver and steel wool. Then take these with the steel wool to fill holes around pipes that are entering your house. She also mentioned that I might...

Since I did not have any News last week, I am playing catch up. Elton Stewart called to say that they had a great showing for the Stewart Family Reunion. His cousin that was related to Earline came and she is 94 years old. It is always great to visit with family. Well, I have something I want to share with everyone. During the month of September, I was a victim of a scam. Someone posing as a representative of Microsoft Windows, called...

I know it is a little early, but does anyone know of houses that could benefit from a new coat of paint? The SSWC will be asking for houses to paint very soon. Look around your neighborhood in Brashear and let me know. I do not mind contacting that person asking if they would like to have their house painted. Elton Stewart took me up on my offer for a visit this morning. He stopped by and wanted to tell me that the Stewart Family is...

If you haven’t heard yet, there is a great chance of cooler weather coming our way. This is great news. Maybe the grasshoppers will disappear with this cool front. Happy Anniversary to Teresa and Leonard Rocha. Teresa wanted to wish Leonard a Happy 34th Anniversay so she called me. I am thrilled that she called. Thirty four years is a great milestone to reach. Congratulations. It is the little things in life that can make you smile....
