— There was a Howard and Mary (Nash) Johnson family reunion held at the Sparks Spring Fellowship hall. Everyone had a very enjoyable time visiting and eating. Marna and Mickey Hughes from Beadis, Texas, came the furtherest. There were cousins from the Lubbock, Madisonville, Weatherford, Jacksboro and the Perrin area who attended.

Students will be happy to learn that Friday, May 10, is designated as a bad weather day and they have the day off. I think the teachers will appreciate it too.

Thought for the week: No woman is ever fat. She is just too short for her height.
