Perrin residents receive transmission line info

PERRIN –At the Perrin school library last Monday evening there was an open meeting for the proposed transmission line project presented by Oncor. They presented information to help understand the proposed project and routing process with agents available for any questions.

This proposal is to connect Texas with wind generation. Oncor is proposing to build more than 850 miles of new transmission lines that will allow the state to more than double its wind energy. They showed alternate routes for the project. There were a lot of interested people of the community who attended the meeting.


Hadn’t spoken with Bernice Farmer since she came home from the hospital. We had a nice phone “visit” the other day and she is doing good. Has dismissed her home health girls and is now doing for herself. She had quadruple bypass surgery a couple of months ago. Glad she is doing so well.

My oldest great granddaughter, Jo Ann Renfro, celebrated her fifth birthday with a gathering of friends and family at the Pizza Hut. She celebrated again on the 24th, her actual birthday. The two little sisters, Heather and Rebecca, joined her and she was heartbroken when I told her I am not able to walk and be out at night, so I begged off.

Seemed someone was looking at me this morning, it was a cute little lizard-type fellow about two inches long including his tail, big eyes staring at me. I talked to him and wished I could get him outside, and wondered how he got in. He just sat and watched me. Just sticking out of the water heater closet and when I went back to check on him, he was gone. I keep thinking he will grow up and be big. Later found him in the hallway and he just sat and looked at me. I knew I could pick him up but wanted to be sure. I asked Derek Alan to pick him up and he did and put him in a little plastic bucket and covered it with a paper towel. This morning I took him out on the front porch and sat down on the step, removed the towel and he was on my hand. I let him loose on my leg and he ran around on me. I never saw him again, hope he is outside.
