Unsettled weather has been around most of the week, but so far sprinkles to light showers is about all our area has received. However, on over west on the Elida/Dora state road, around the Harding Burris place, they received a lot of damage from hail and some rain.
Several of our local people have been gone for this weekend, some of them to the area where they grew up and they attended memorial services there today.
James Newberry had an operation last week to have a knee repaired he hurt in a recent fall. He is recuperating with his mother’s care while recovering.
Our shut-in senior citizens are : Ivy Wall Hays, Bill Victor, Annette Fullerton, and Virgil Blakley (there may be others I don’t know of). Norma Cummings, Kristi Ledbetter, Hope Bilbrey, Lynn Preuit, Dessie Reed are all still on ailing list. New on this list is T.J. Floyd for a heart attack.
Wayne and Billie Tollett report that their granddaughter, Jalissa King, is on a mission trip to Thailand until June 12.
