Wow, only a few days until Christmas and an even scarier thought is that in less than two weeks it will be 2015! Monday night was a regularly scheduled school board meeting. One of the main topics was extending the elementary building. This is a positive thought toward the growth of our school. Hopefully it will become a reality in the upcoming year. Happy Birthday this week to Karen May on Dec. 14, Daniel Shackelford on Dec. 16,...

Christmas is peeking around the corner and before we know it, it will be Christmas Eve. Most people still have a list of things to do in preparation of the big day…presents to buy, special foods and candies to make, and still some decorating here and there. So many of us get caught up in the commercial-ism of Christmas and don’t stop long enough to acknowledge the true meaning of the season. Not that I am perfect, because believe me...

Can anyone believe that Christmas is nearly here? Each year time flies more and more quickly. Last week County Line School’s historical marker was delivered. Now the program committee can plan a dedication ceremony for the marker. Last week I missed a few birthdays so I’m playing catch-up this week. Happy Birthday last week to Debbie Weatherly on Nov. 24; Jessica (Wagley) May on Nov. 25; Brian Lennon on Nov. 26; Lori (Woods) Evans on...

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...
