Computer woes, free eats & VBS

By Kay Mealio

If anyone is contemplating purchasing a new computer, they need to contact me. I’ve had nothing but trouble with my new purchase.

I’m the type who wants the newest and most innovative and I got it with Windows 8. I’m not much of a technical person, but I can usually figure things out eventually. But this Windows 8 is a monster and I’m wishing for my old computer back! I finally was at my wits' end and contacted Dell to have help in reformatting my hard drive and install Windows 7 on it. We got a good service rep who did help Fred in taking off Windows 8 and it died a slow and painful death. They were on the phone over two hours.

Now the problem is with drivers and other technical stuff. Fortunately my son is a computer IT technician and he helped me download the correct items, so as of right now I am up and working; but my email is still messed up Hopefully I can get that worked out soon.

The monthly food pantry distribution is provided by the Probation Office of Jack County, First Baptist Church of Perrin and Perrin Advent Christian Church. Any church, organization or individual is welcome to contribute. Contacts are Debra Tillery: (940) 798-4173; Monna Lyon: (940) 798-2390; Janice Francis: (940) 798-3265; or Linda Patton: (940) 798-2090. Food distribution is held on the third Saturday of each month from 9 to 11 a.m. This month it's on June 15, and is distributed from the Advent Christian Fellowship Hall. Presently there are approximately three to six individuals and 15 to 18 families (with three to five children in each household) being provided with food, and all are very appreciative of the food. These are older individuals with a fixed income, some with heath issues, others working, but have a limited income, and some who have lost their jobs. There are no requirements to receive food except it is for people who live in the Perrin area or live in the Perrin-Whitt CISD.
