Friday, April 22, 2011 - The MalakoffNews - Page 7A Trinidad Tales Easter eggs are going to be hidden Saturday at our VFW, Dylan's Park, and family yards. My mother- in-law's big hunt for all the grandkids included a prize egg with money inside. Of course, in Malakoff the extravaganza occurs, and I never have anyone to take for the hunt, Here I go, trying to get a few facts right. Carol Stevenson is the woman who came here as a widow, living in a blue mobile home, had a car, and a few distant relatives. There seemed to be family problems, and soon she was said to be in an insti- tution. She had often taken two great nieces places. Then we learned she is back, not well, and in a nursing institution near us. We wish her well. Pat Hamm is intent on leaving her wheel chair, then walker, ready to go after her thll and breaks during the January snow and ice. She knows her bones broke and then she fell. She has been through an ordeal. We saw T.J. and Sue Rozelle in Chandler this week. Their son Tom, Jr., was there too, recovering from a bad wreck months ago. T.J. has one sister left, Faye, and was a THS graduate of 1954, the youngest in the class of eight boys. He played on the first six-man team here with my husband. They also were babysitting a blonde, blue-eyed three- year old great-grand- daughter who obviously adored them, named Keaton Kay. We older ones sipped colas and dis- cussed our ailments. This is legal with people of near age Remember that adage of being "successful" if old dogs and children love you and you've planted a garden or two. ... Evelyn Beavers, Bethel Kelly and Billy Gifford seem to be improving. The women are staying in, close to the hearth which won't be necessary much longer. We need coolness at bedtime and a heater for early morning. Already delicious items are coming from gardens all around, like tomatoes, cantaloupe, greens and more. Billy Wilbanks has been selling lawn flowers. We even planted them within two hours. 1'11 check to see their condition when I'm through here. This is the last week for Lady Trojans' softball. Our granddaughter plays and is a senior. I don't foresee any more [,undys in the forecast, but we never know. I think all three kitchen appliances are on the "outs." Women often wish for help: some want a housekeeper, some a nanny, some a chauffeur, and others a "cook." I'd take someone who would wash, fold, and put up. How can two people have so many dirty clothes? Those cute, small mo- bile homes are selling well, but they cost as much as a small home. [ want to tell businesses try- ing to cut losses by upping prices that many of us aren't seeing any raise, only insurance and retire- ment cuts. When an item goes up $4 in one month's time, we won't be buying it. 1 may learn to make root soup. Sometime Trinidad can- cels town elections be- cause no one else runs to compete. Not this year. For mayor are Larry Estes facing Frank Covey. For the two council seats are Brent. Nolan, Susan L. Dowdy, Danny Ramsey, Beth Parker and Claude Jackson. The two seats on the school board are sought by Ricky Stanfield, Roosevelt Womack, Jr., and Dennis Parker. We've had two houses filled in Trinidad by peo- ple but several houses are for sale. These Texas fires are getting too close. No:'one believes me, but in a na- tional long-printed maga- zine, information is in- cluded which shows stud- ies on lakes, especially the major ones of the U.S.A. The lake bottoms are ris- ing slowly from statistics. A lake can be low with the bottom coming up. That's OK. No one liked for me to point out propaganda in our media 25 years ago when I learned about it. We're all guilt), of a little propaganda, which didn't always mean slanted news like loaded words. On our prayer list are Ginger Frasier, Martha Perry, Raymond Tubbs, Garrett Glover (im- proved), Christopher Brown, Joel May, Eugene Berry, Don Wilbanks, Roberta Staples, Dortha Roberts, Braney Reeee, Harding Airheart, Flora Robb, Grady Quinn, Mary Reppond, Joe Moser, Gertrude Stanfield, Get-alL , dine Stanfield, Wretha, Barfoot, Lawrence Moser, Ron Holt, William Looney, Esther Ruth Abbe, our soldiers, Way-I lan Hall (grandson of Jean and Doug Winn), Zayd. Mahesnah, Lauren He-. brank, Tyler Norris, Miles ' Norris, and all others who are military, in the fight for us at home in some way, even if only by numbers. Spring Show slated Special to The News Ren embering an impor- tant day can be as simple as a string around a finger or far more complicated. But no matter the method, re- membering s~c'ial occa- slops is a part oI every hie. This week,' he Trinity Valley Community College Cardettes will be featuring their annual spring show. This year's title is "A Day to Remember." "'['his show is about the days we celebrate each cal- endar year," said Cardette Director Darla Mansfield. "And not just the holidays, but days with other impor- tant occasions like doctor's visits." The idea for this year's spring show actually came up years ago, said Mans- field. However, the music available was too limited to make it come to fruition. "The songs at the time were mostly about holi- days," said Mansfield. Now the music is much more varied and the group was able to find songs for a wide variety of occasions. The holidays celebrated in the show will not all be American, said Mansfield. The dance temn will also perform routines based on special occasions in other countries. "The show is entertain- ing, educating and energiz- ing," said Mansfield. "And it's very' family friendly." The show will be pre- sented at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Apri! 22 and 2 p.m. Satur- day, April 23. Both shows will be in the TVCC Audi- torium, which is located in the administration build- ing. Admission to the show is $10 for adults and $5 for students who present a school identification card from an), school. Children under age 3 are admitted free of" charge.
