Rain all around us and in cities with concrete, no earth, but we can’t get any to fall here. We need to take our umbrellas to church to show faith behind our rain prayers.

I’m not ready for years of campaigning. I need to practice or work on my cooking.

Anna Laura Bradley Doubleday has been rewarded with good news recently. Her daughter Lisa Hebrank with the Malakoff School System has earned another degree, with A & M at ETSU, that now lets her elevate her teaching status to Counselor. Then granddaughter Lauren Hebrank, stationed in the western USA with the military, has completed a four-year study with her medical aspirations and has won the Audie Murphy Award.

I’ve been omitting a Trinidad man from the list of military people. He is Jeremy Roden, THS graduate of 2005. He and his wife are in Iraq. His mother is Audrey Lewis of Trinidad.

Jerry Crocker joined the three by-pass club of residents of Trinidad Thursday. He had surgery for his heart in Tyler last Thursday and should be coming home this week early.

Bobbie Wheeler has been transferred to this area for therapy with her illness. She is the sister of Toni Steele.

Norman Lawler has had stress and other tests for his heart in Tyler this past week and is waiting on all the results.

Joe Touchet of Cross Roads and a past resident of Malakoff died last week. When he resided in Malakoff, he was married to Debbie nee Johnston of Trinidad originally. As survivors he leaves two daughters. His service was Friday.

Some are looking forward to a tax-free (sales) weekend August 19-21. Others don’t like the crowds and shop before or after.

A ten-year old on Tempie Road who attends TISD and goes by initials (TJ) was kicked in the face by a horse Thursday night. She was careflighted to Children’s Medical but is now home, awaiting treatment from other doctors in this area. She had a concussion and has at least one injured eye.

Our immediate family and then the family of the other side of grandparents celebrated a graduation ceremony in San Marcos at Texas State of U.T. Granddaughter Rose Dianne Jenkins received her BA degree in education with the special certifications added that will add to her teaching availability.

Jerry Cotton is home and improved after surgery and treatment last week. He has some medical appointments during this week.

Ann Rounsavall was visiting in Trinidad this weekend. She is enjoying her grandchildren.

Rosalee Colvin has been having tests run to check on possible return of her cancer. She has been free from the disease for quite a while.

Football and volleyball schedules are out for THS with scrimmages coming this weekend.

The Blue Diamond Dancers have begun their before-school practice.

When autumn comes with its cooler weather, and one night there is a low full moon while one is watching a football game, life can be really great.

Keep these people in your prayers plus anyone above who needs help: Roberta Staples, Eugene Berry, James Looney, Brancy Reece, Derrell Jenkins, those lonely with family or loved ones, Barbara Thompson, the Pat Holcomb family, David Lohman, Jimmy Williams, Ruby Williams, the Moser Brothers, Bethel Kelly, Raymond Tubbs, Geraldine Stanfield, our veterans in homes of the area, Ginger Frasier, Martha Perry, Christopher Brown, David Finley, our military men and women – Miles Norris, Tyler Norris, Louis Stanton, Mikey Warren, Bobby Tinney, Cord Smith, Jeremy and Mrs. Roden, Andre Anderson, Lauren Hebrank who was recently married.
