Feb. 16 South County News

By Charlie Carmichael

More showers last week and more forecast for the latter days this week. No one is fussing that I know of even though some elder folks don’t venture out on muddy roads to church.
I haven’t even heard any school bus drivers complaining about the dirt roads.

Sympathy
To Zane Gushwa and family and friends in the death of her husband, George on Saturday. George moved southwest of Dora years ago on a ranch and later married Zane. They have made their home there and have many friends all over the area and Elida area. George was a WWII vet. His sister, Faye Rowland, also lived in the area with her husband Henry. They have been deceased for years. May God bless each of those left to mourn his passing. His services were Tuesday at Wheeler Mortuary.
