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...

This week’s news is a little more eventful that the last few weeks. Weather has turned hot on us but that is expected for August! We have had a very mild summer, which I am very thankful for. Friday I took off of work early to go see my cousin Tiffney Darrow graduate from nursing school. Our cousin, Nathan Petty, also went with me. The ceremony was held in the Whatley Center at Northeast Texas Community College just outside of Mt....

Can anyone remember the last time it was this cool in July? I was so thankful for the cool front that came in last week. It was great to get the rain and a least a few days of the milder-than-normal temperatures. I believe that I heard on the news that we broke a record for the coolest temperature for this time of year. I hate to see it leave but I know it is the dead of summer, so unbearable heat is to be expected. Sunday afternoon I...
