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!”

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.
