Miller Grove News 11/5/14 By Brandon Darrow

With the opening of deer season this weekend and the cool snap we have had, I have seen many pictures posted on Facebook of deer that have been shot in and around the county. This week there are several people with MG connections that need to be recognized. First and foremost I would like to tell everyone how well Miller Grove High School’s Cross Country team has done this year. UIL’s Region II Cross Country meet was deemed very...

Well this week I have several things to write about. The community has been busy with the carnival and other happenings at the school, the fire department adding new members, and the recent death of one of our community members. So many people in the community were saddened this week to learn that Ramiro Jimenez lost his life after a tree fell on his body in Schooley Creek bottom, on the south side of FM 1567. From what I have been...

This week’s cold front is surely here! Makes me hungry for some of my favorite cold weather food – stew and chili! My condolences to three families with Miller Grove connections this week who have had loved ones that passed. Claire Moseley, Edward Clark, and Gary McLarry are three souls that have left this world since my last writing. Claire Alma (Thibault) Moseley was born Feb. 7, 1935, in Haverhill, Massachusetts. She was the...

Fall is here and the days are getting seemingly shorter. Before we know it, it will be time to roll those clocks back one hour as daylight savings time ends. Another thought that enters my mind when I think of autumn is the school’s annual Fall Carnival. This year it is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 24. Saturday was Farmers Electric Cooperative’s annual business meeting. This year the meeting was held in Rockwall. I think there were...

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...

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...
