Homecoming 2011 has arrived with a fish dinner tonight at the VFW banquet room, a pep rally at the gym, and more. The Ex-Student Association headed up by Tommy Thomas with help from the Sharp family, the Wiggins family, the Lawlers, the Bradleys, the Stanfields and many others have planned activities, surprises, and programs to match something of interest for everyone. Come out and see! The game with Fruitvale will be Saturday night, with the King and Queen chosen before the game, and all the classes graduating in years ending with a 1 will be honored at halftime (not 2011). All coaches will be honored in prior activities of the day, such as the parade. A good time to think about for Friday night is 5 p.m. and Saturday night, 7 p.m. Everyone welcome to the Methodist Church Sunday for service and meal!

Rain in the last two weekends has been nice but so little. Still, it lets us know we are still on the list for showers and storms.

Betty Jane French Hayes has been diagnosed with throat problems, is having tests, and prayers and concerns are being given daily. She lives in the Austin area with her husband Barry. She is the eldest daughter of the late John and Margaret French.

Lauretta and Norman Lawler are on the mend. Lauretta will be home Thursday of this week. Norman’s sister Barbara Wier and husband Dale have been on the run along with others since Lauretta first went to the hospital with a seizure and then Norman had chest pains repeatedly. The Renterias have been busy with the Lawlers here and Mary Nell’s sister in Austin.

Tommy Ardoin has left for the west to work. I think he’s in Utah, a surprisingly beautiful state we central easterners are surprised to see. Barbara Ardoin will be visiting in New York with family while Tommy is gone.

Jerry and Susie Stanfield have a grandson in a serious condition.

Jeremy Speake was in a car accident and broke his neck last week. He is the middle of Debbie Corn’s three sons. Jeremy, I believe, now has a neck brace and does not have paralysis. He has been in a serious condition.

No falls or broken bones we know of recently for others.

Beth Parker as returned from her New York bus trip rejuvenated and happy.

Bette Lehman’s niece has improved some in her serious illness.

Rosalee Colvin has started some kind of therapy for her return of lung cancer.

The Trojans lost big in a non-district game with Penelope last Friday. Few teams make up our district, but weekly I hear of six-man teams starting in other small schools, hopefully closer to us.

Remember in prayer our soldiers involved in some way in a terrible war: Tyler Norris, Lauran Hebrank, the Jeremy Rodens, Miles Norris, Andre Anderson, Mikey Warren, Weylon Hill, Cord Smith, Louis Stanton whose twin daughters became one last week in Colorado Springs, Coloado, Jonathan Crocker, Chelsea Tapley .
Others in need of prayer include Martha Perry, Raymond Tubbs, Christopher Brown, Evelyn Beavers, Winston Thornburg, James Looney, Joel Mays, Eugene Berry’s family as an old soldier with a treacherous record on wartime ships has now left us, a man among men, Roberta Staples, Judy Langford’s mother,
Anyone I’ve omitted, I apologize for. I read somewhere that if a prayer is not given for a name, but just a whisper of that name is said with love, God hears.
