New baby in Newby

NEWBY — Charlie and Annabelle presented James and Rose Anne House with a beautiful baby girl last week. Her name is Mary Lou. Her father, Charlie, is a stallion and her mother, Annabelle, is a jenny. Their offspring is called a “henny.” Only one in 10 attempts might produce a henny. They are rare.

I met Mary Lou on Monday and she is beautiful. She is as soft as a cotton ball, has beautiful markings and a very sweet disposition. I’ll enjoy having her for a neighbor. Some may think it strange, but I love to hear Annabelle braying across the hill.

Helping the other team

This story comes from Helen Jenkins Carnes, age 90, in her own words.

“I was a freshman at Newby High School in 1936 and was a member of the the girl’s basketball “B” team. Our varsity team was playing Miller High School and was losing badly; in fact, by half time Newby had not scored a single point. So, at half time our coach replaced the entire team with the “B” team.

“Well! Now we could show Miller what we had! I got the first chance after the second half began. The ball went into the basket, never touching the rim. The only problem was that I had forgotten that we were to change goals at the half, so I scored two points for Miller!

“I was so horrified by what I had done that I told my mother that she would have to find me another school, that I could never live this down. She tried to assure me that they would soon forget what I had done and would target someone else. Of course I didn't believe her, but that is exactly what happened. But I never forgot!”

Church rummage sale

Newby Union Church has set a date for their Church Rummage Sale. It will be July 11, 12 and 13 at the Clowers Corner Market at 122 Battlefield Memorial Hwy. A huge thank you to all those who support us. Hope to see you there.
