May 11 Dora/South County News

By Charlie Carmichael

On this Monday it is sure a sign warm weather is here, not that isn’t to say there won’t be a cooler spell or so yet. If it stays this warm there will surely be some garden seed and tomato plants out before many days.

Opal Terry passed away at her family’s home in Dora on Wednesday evening. She had been a resident in the Dora Area for quiet a long time. She was a happy friendly person until she suffered a stroke several years ago and was never as active after that. All of her relatives had moved from our area in the 50s and 60’. However her son Arthur returned to be with her after her health failed. She was 99 late last year and most of her dear friends had already passed on.
There were a few of us left. She will be missed by all who knew her and especially her son Arthur and her caretaker who came out every afternoon. Her services were today in Dallas.

Mother’s Day
This was a special day at the Baptist Church with all mothers present being presented with a rose and a few daisies.

The wheat crop that was not cut and bailed for hay is sure maturing fast now. There will probably be some combining being done in two to four weeks. There are some fields that look pretty good if there isn’t some hail or high winds before it can get it gathered.

Commodities will arrive on May 18. Since Buster will not be here to work with them, I would appreciate you calling me at 356-9104 if you can possibly help out on that day. They usually get to Dora around 11a.m.
