Waco churches planning Halloween ‘trunk-or-treat’

WACO — Hi!

Brrrr. You can tell November is just around the corner!

After an unusually warm fall (was it just last week?), these 40-ish temperatures sure feel winter-like, don't they?

Someone said the other day that he believes we have only two seasons now – summer and winter. I'm inclined to agree.

You know next week is Halloween and trick or treat for the youngsters. Most of our churches are offering “trunk-or-treat” on that night, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. as an alternative and “safer” way to collect all those treats!

Just so you’ll know, Mrs. Ashley Selby Parker, former first grade teacher at Waco Elementary, has had her baby. Sawyer Finn Parker is here! Now, Solon can officially be called “big brother.” Sawyer almost made it on Mom's birthday, Oct. 27. Congratulations everyone!

Happy birthday wishes go out to Vickie Griggs, Oct. 20; Bill Strong and Andrew Compton, Oct. 23; Scott Brandenburg and Karoline Prichta, Oct. 26; Linda Stanifer, Oct. 28; and Bart Davidson, Oct. 30.

Happy anniversary wishes go out to Charles and Louise Rupard, Oct. 17; Andy and Courtney Dunn. Oct. 23; Calvin and Teresa Marshall, Oct. 26; and Doug and Bonnie Jackson, Oct. 27.

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one!

(It was good seeing you, Rosalie, Judy, Joyce and Patty Jo at the “oh, so fine” Smokehouse Restaurant last Sunday. You have a great establishment, Patty Jo! It was a also a pleasure to see those fine Clark-Moores students on Monday, especially those from good ol’ Waco Elementary. You make us so proud!)

    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.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    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.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    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.

    Hello everyone.
    I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
