Miller Grove News – by Brandon Darrow

    Saturday while working in the cemetery I noticed two people there that I had never seen. I walked up to them and introduced myself and turns out they were from Ohio and related to the Anderson family of Miller Grove. We talked for a while and they have recently moved to McKinney. They have heard their relatives speak of Miller Grove and their family buried there and they wanted to see for themselves. Their names were Ben and...

Spring is officially here and the monsoonal rains we have had lately have really been greening up the rye grass in and around The Grove.  I know we’re thinking, “Enough is enough” with the rain but I try not to complain since we have seen so many dry summers. Last Friday morning Gail Garmon, Lewis Watts, and I went to KSST radio station to be interviewed by Enola Gay Matthews about our upcoming historical marker dedication ceremony...

Saturday MG Cemetery Trustees met and made some decisions as to the program for the 2015 Memorial Day Services that will be held on Saturday, May 2. If everyone can commit, I think we will have another good line-up for this year’s program. Sunday afternoon the County Line School Historical Marker committee nailed down some of the particulars on the dedication ceremony that will be coming up in April. A tentative date has been set for...

After the cold weather mid-week and the blustery day on Saturday, Sunday turned out to be very nice. I get spoiled to the sunshine and sixty degree weather and then winter rears its ugly head again and I’m thrown into the reality that it is still February and there is quite a bit of winter still at hand. Friday night was Homecoming for Miller Grove High School. I ended up getting to see the end of the boys game and then watched as the...

I’m happy to report this week that my nephew, Brody Darrow, received the Student of the Month award from Central Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs where he attends their pre-k classes.

This week I have a few bits and pieces of news to share with the community. You know, any good reporter needs to “find” news wherever he or she goes. And, that’s exactly what I did Thursday night. While driving down FM 1567, I noticed a lot of smoke billowing up from the County Road 1152 area of the Center Point community. On further inspection it looked like one of the pastures in the bottoms was on fire. I counted four fire trucks...

This week has ended very cold and wet compared to the nice weather we had mid-week. January is quickly coming to a close and it already seems like 2015 is flying by. My sympathies this week to the Millsap family. I was honored to serve as a pallbearer at my Aunt Ruthie Millsap’s funeral this past Sunday. Ruthie Edna (Brown) Millsap passed away Jan. 14 in Pasadena, Texas. Funeral services were conducted Sunday, Jan. 18, in West Oaks...

Cold weather and rain have been on most people’s minds lately. I’m not particularly fond of the cold weather but I know we do need the rain so I won’t complain. Lake Fork and Tawakoni are both still very low and need quite a bit of water to be restored to the water level that they once maintained. Received a note from Charles Bennett the other day with some information about our VFD. He said that at the organization’s regular business...
