From my ledger. July, 1986 vacation to Smoky Mountains. Greg, Jean, and I went to the Smokies then circled south before heading home. Tuesday, July 8, 1986. Breakfast at a Maggie Valley restaurant. All you can eat for $1.89. To enjoy the scenery we selected a table on a screened in porch. A nearby sign proclaimed it to be the most photographed view in the Smokies. We have seen several of the most photographed places in the Smokies. An...

Miller Grove News by Brandon Darrow 09/23/14

How about this cool front that has made it’s way into our area? I walked outside Monday morning and couldn’t believe it. It felt like Autumn was in full swing. In fact, Tuesday morning on my way to work I saw a group of geese flying south in a “V” formation. Thursday of last week Miller Grove School hosted their second annual Cross Country Meet. Twenty-three schools were represented with a total of 533 runners. We took 2nd place in...

Columbus Bean And Poor Man, September 25, 2014 #1351

More about our recent fishing trip to Galveston. Tuesday, September 9. Wind and tides bring strange items to the beach. Among the seaweed this trip we found three, relatively rare, large seeds. Some were heart shaped, mahogany brown, and two to almost three inches in diameter. A quick glance reminded me of a buckeye seed and later research showed the seeds to be good luck charms like buckeyes. One looked exactly like a little...

Miller Grove News 09/16/14 By Brandon Darrow

Community news is scant this week. As I wrack my brain as to what has been happening lately I can only focus on the weather and how nice the norther and rain has been this past week. It made for a good weekend. I’m sure it also made the Rains County Fair much more enjoyable for the patrons who attended. I passed by the fairgrounds Friday and Saturday and from what I could tell there was a really good crowd of people there. Happy...

Brashear News 09/16/14 By Debby Young

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...

More on the eight day Galveston fishing trip. Saturday, September 6. Day 3. Our camp was southwest of Galveston at Jamaica Beach. Today we traveled back to Roll Over Pass to fish with our group. While riding the ferry we watched porpoises and birds. A group of first class birdwatchers trained their expensive binoculars skyward as they watched a fairly uncommon magnificent frigate bird. These large sea birds are related to albatrosses...
