Thanksgiving supper
The Milnesand community and many friends gathered in the community center Monday night for a pre-Thanksgiving feast and fellowship.

Sympathy
To Fern and George Hay in the death of her brother, Joe Anderson of Fort Sumner.

Harvest
Farmers are anxiously awaiting the sunshine and a few days without moisture so they can get the cotton gathered. Most of the peanuts and hay is out but no one has any cotton out and it is really a good crop if they can only get it in bales.

Back to Iraq
James Love had spent over a year in Iraq when he was sent back to the states for a few weeks with his mother, Kelley Mullins, and two young sisters in our area. He then was sent to Germany for several months and is now going back to Iraq. Many of our young troops are anxious to return and help their comrades over there to help get the freedom and safety secured for those people in need.
James had two weeks here with his mom before she put him on the plane back to Germany. They spent last weekend in San Antonio, Texas, visiting his older brother, Kaleb Humphrey. James signed a waiver so he could go back for a another year in Iraq.

Charlie sez
Today has been reported on television newscasts as “Homemade Bread Day.” So get the flaky biscuits, tasty cornbread and hot rolls ready for the butter.
