By Charlie Carmichael

More showers in all of the South County area. Some from in the area didn’t venture out Sunday for church services. The roads should be settled for the bus routes this week.

Sympathy
Mavis and Weldon Carmichael received word last week about the death of one of her sister-in-laws in Lamesa. She was Tina Womack and Ray, her husband died several years ago.

Update
Ruby and Elton Parkinson went to Lubbock last week for physicals and his blood showed he had a pretty bad infection. He went back Monday for test to check for further treatment and goes back Thursday in view of having surgery.

New comers
Some former Causey/Dora folks moved back home from Colorado. Roy, Susan and Sarah Skipworth have recently moved to the Ben Fuller ranch. They lived in the Chapman house north of Dora before moving to Colorado. Sarah has grown up and she says for now she is just helping her dad on the ranch. We welcome them back to the area. Roberta Payne, Susan’s mother, raised her family in Causey before moving to Portales and working in the Baptist Children’s home for several years. They all attended the Baptist Church Sunday for worship. Roberta was a sister of the late Hank Merrick of Causey and their parents moved there from Lamesa years ago.
