Rue the cold

Body
I took the Snowmaggedon predictions last week with several grains of salt. Any time a good winter storm comes through, the tv weather guys start outbidding each other like collectors at an antique auction.

Remembering snowballs

Body
As I was watching the snow fall on Sunday, it took me back to when I was a kid growing up in the 50’s and 60s. My friends and I liked it when it snowed.

Town Talk

Body
Kudos to all you alums!!! Your response has been overwhelming to our Route 66 Mini-Golf Course, and it has exceeded our expectations! One should never underestimate a tiger, especially a Stroud Tiger! It has been fun to reconnect with so many alums and see classes compete and connect with each other. We have had donations come in from the class of 1947 through 1996 so I guess it does prove “Once a Tiger always a Tiger.” I think our grandparents and parents who came before us and loved this town are looking down on us with pride as we carry the torch promoting Stroud.

Letter to the editor

Body
The friendly, organized and professional service provided by the Lincoln County Health Department is greatly appreciated and needs to be recognized for their outstanding service. My husband and I recently received our first and second doses of Covid Immunization and there is nothing that could have been improved on with this experience.

Family guitars

Body
I dragged out a guitar the other day and realized that it had been three or four years, at least, since the last time I had laid pick to strings. There haven’t been a lot of opportunities for picking and, when they have arisen, I’ve mostly worked out on the doghouse bass.

Body
Prairie Pointe residents Margie Testerman and James Green, brother and sister, celebrated their birthdays Saturday. Family from Texas spent the weekend in Stroud and brought cake for the occasion. They also treated the “Birthday Kids” to dinner Saturday evening at Scotty B’s in Davenport.
