All the news you might have missed . . .
Lots and lots of local news on Social Media in the last couple of days.
Bright Beginnings Academic Center, which is where the youngest of Cubs go to learn, had lots of kiddos with perfect attendance for this six weeks! That is no small accomplishment in these days, and with kids this little! Congrats to these!
There was lots of work going on at the new BHS building. You can actually see walls going up as you drive by. Two huge cranes work there daily. One morning early, before the sun was even up, I took a drive over there and they were working by spotlight! Amazing. What you may not know is that one of the architects on this project is a BHS Grad! Jeremy Cheatham, Class of 96, works with Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper. We are so proud of him!
Around town, Nelson Pharmacy is holding a big Fall Sale! The doors are locked but they will let you in, if you are healthy and wearing a mask. Stop by and look at their fall sale items, and maybe do a little Christmas shopping while you are at it!
Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway is officially retired. Congressman Conaway represented the Midland District, but he represented all of us by serving us well on the Ag Committee. We will certainly miss him. He and his wife got to see his portrait unveiled this week before they left Washington.
We had another Ribbon Cutting this week! Dusty Creek Gifts and More, which is located on Tahoka Road in the shopping area behind Prosperity Bank, held a ribbon cutting. This is a really cute shop with lots of great gift ideas for you and they carry masks! They also carry CBD oils and other CBD products. Stop by and Shop Local!
And, more lights went up around town. the garland and wreath that stretches across Main by the bank went up this week. Cat and his crew gave us a call so we could witness the whole thing! It is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
The Cubs and Lady Cubs will play basketball at home on Saturday. Cubs will play at 2 p.m. and the Lady Cubs will open their season at 3:30. Get out and support these kiddos who are praying like everything they get to continue to play and finish their seasons out this year.
The Wildcats of Wellman-Union were scheduled for Saturday also, but those games were canceled by the opposing team. No word on if it was COVID related or not.
The Broncos and Lady Broncos of Meadow were on the court Friday night. No results yet from those games.
Once again in the “Kind of Interesting” department, we saw a post where Ozona was set to demolish their old high school. The architecture in the 1931 building was stunning. The one who posted the pictures stated that the roof had fallen in, and it just generally had not been maintained, but the walls and foundation remained sound. So sad to see it go. Many people made comments and shared memories of that building. Here are a couple of pictures. What a sad thing to see go.
Just because it is cute, could become a new feature. Who knows! But here were two little cousins enjoying the Annual Turkey Run at Wellman-Union on Friday. Pretty cute little turkeys, themselves!
This has been a sad week, as we have seen so much illness and so many deaths, even today. We just have to keep praying and keep doing what we can to stop the spread of this disease that we know so little about. Pray for each other and love each other.
Finally, here is your funny! This may or may not apply to you . . .
