Billy Moss reported that on August 29 th he had been shopping at Dollar General in Birthright and had put his receipt in his pocket. Later he noticed that his bank envelope with his money was missing, so he called the store to check on it. They said that it had been turned it in. Billy wants to express his appreciation to the “honest man” who found his money.
Billy’s mother, Mamie Jo (Garner) Jenkins fell and broke her ankle and 3 bones in her foot. Please pray for a quick recovery.

On Sunday afternoon, Brailon Joslin was honored with a party for his 5th birthday at the Tira Community Center. Helping him celebrate were his parents and siblings, Landon, Laiken, Dixie, Rylan, and Slaiden, and grandparents, aunts, and uncles – Leigh Ann, Bailey, and Kasen, Tiffany, Jaidyn, Malcolm, Morgan, Tiffany’s friend, Perry, and Chip and I. Brailon was very excited and enjoyed playing with all his new toys!
I returned to work at my office on Monday and was treated to a home cooked meal when I got home. Tiffany and her friend, Perry, had made “breakfast for supper”. Jaidyn and Kenden and his friend, Whitney, were here, too.
