Debates are hot topic this week

Waco News

WACO — Hi! Are you talking “debates” this week?

The pundits on TV sure are!

It’s getting close to that time when the debates will be over, the pundits will have taken their last spin and we’ll know who will be at the head of this fine nation – time sure flies doesn’t it?

I can’t believe we’re right in the middle of fall. The leaves are turning and falling off (and covering porches and sidewalks and roads!)

By the time I sweep them off the porches, there’s that many again right there where I swept.

The leaves are especially vibrant this year, have you noticed?

The red leaves seem to be a  brighter red, the orange ones seem more orange, etc. (When they’re still on the trees that is!)

Did you take in one or more nights of the revival at Flatwoods Christian Church?

You may want to check out their website for updated pictures and information on what you missed (or see yourself if you were there.)

Our Waco volunteer firefighters were at Waco Elementary last Friday as part of Fire Prevention Week.

Everyone enjoyed getting to see our first responders up close as well as gaining important information on fire safety and prevention.

Can you believe Sparky the Fire Dog was on hand as well? The students loved that!

Thanks, Waco volunteers, for all you do for our community.

Happy birthday wishes go out to Daphne Smith Hill and Brittany Brown, Oct. 12; Matthew Marcum, Oct. 17; and Andrew Compton, Oct. 23.

Happy anniversary wishes go out to Charles and Louise Rupard, Oct. 17; and David and Nancy Kaylor, Oct. 24.

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

Glad you’re home and “on your feet again” George Kaylor; same sentiments to Doug Webb. “Uncle” Leon, thanks to Facebook, we’re keeping up with you.

  • 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?”

  • Katie-Rollins.jpg Thank the Lord for the rain

    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.

  • Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?

    Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
