July 13 South County News

By Charlie Carmichael

There has been more rain from showers in this area and on to the Texas line than farther north. The most I’ve heard about was in the Richland and Garrison area, one inch and up to one-and-a-half inches.

Causey concerns
All of this area, but especially the Causey residents are really concerned about the death of Bo Chunn. He had been a farmer and rancher there for several years and was well known by everyone in this whole area and by most people in the county. His graveside services will be in the Causey cemetery on Friday morning at 10 a.m.

Milnesand Baptist Church
Bro. Brad Morgan and two sons were back fro Sunday worship services after spending a week in camp. He preached a sermon and Rick Wilcher sang two songs.

Commodities
Don’t forget these will be here for distribution next Wednesday in all of the area from Arch, Causey, Milnesand and Dora. Call your area coordinator for time and other details.

Parkinsons
Ruby and Elton Parkinson drove to Monahans, Texas to visit relatives for a few days. They returned Sunday afternoon.

Fact
From Ben Franklin’s Almanac: In 1863 the first U.S. military draft sparked four days of rioting in New York City, starting July 13.
