Tom Davidson of Canton recently bought it and plans to change it to a western store similar to the "Country Corner Feed and Farm Supply" store he has in Canton. Gall Anderson of Mabank is the new manager of the Seven Points store. I looked over her stock of shirts, pants, jeans, and leisure suits and must say they are just the sort of thing the boys in my family go for. There is also a nice selection of ties and belts being offered at reduced prices. I'm tempted to buy a few and tuck them away for Christmas gifts. Gall said that Mr. David- son plans to have a complete line of western wear for the whole family -- from boots to hats -- and there will be a special grand opening when the new stock arrives. Hunger pangs attacked me on the way home and l stopped in at the new "Jan's Famous Burgers" stand to savor their fare. This is a great place to satisfy your hungry's if you don't have much time or money, -- or even if you do. About a month ago, Jan Spradlin of Trinidad opened this small place that nestles close to the north side of Darden's Truck Center. Folks are already discovering that her burgers are some- thing special. For one thing, they are made with handmade patties of good ground beef from Phillips Foods in Mala- koff, -- and most everyone who's lived here a while knows that Phillips has some of the best meat in this area. Jan doesn't add any fillers either. When you buy a hamburger there, you get meat. She dresses them with enough lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles to make a gen- erous dinner salad. No skimpy little shreds of stuff at Jan's, they really are the kind that mother makes at home. Jan certainly should know how to make a good belly- filling burger, she and her husband have 13 children -- his, hers and theirs. When they got married they had six each from previous marriages and they've added a young son to the group since that event. Two of the pretty young daughters help their mother in the new business. The kitchen is clean, the food's delicious, the prices are reasonable, the service is fast and the mother and daughters are friendly and pretty. f met some more nice folks when I tagged along with my husband on a trip down Key Ranch Road to Cedar Creek Landing so he could yearn over a fancy bass boat. The Cedar Creek Fishing Barge is also located there. The new owners, Roy and Wyonetta Elliot, showed me around their place. It's a fun spot and if you like to fish in comfort, you can do it inside their large covered barge which is heated in winter and air conditioned in summer. I found Corsicana residents, Mr. and Mrs. J.L. Darmaby, Opal Webb, and Myrtle McNeil there fishing in cool, shady comfort. They said they frequently pack up a picnic and drive over to spend the day fishing with the Elliots. In the front end of the barge there is a small store that offers groceries, gas and oil, fishing tackle, bait and camping supplies. They also rent boats, motors and barges. I had a good old homey chat with Roy and Wonetta and their friend and helpful neighbor, Berry Wilson, who lives in a nearby mobile home. Mr. Wilson is a retired Texas and Pacific Railroad man and tells many a rousing tale about railroading in this country. Now there's another week full of worthwhile people I've met and my life is surely richer for having made the effort to know them -- and that's what it's all about. Frankston Marking Fourth Kids and pets will have their day in Frankston on July 4 this year. The Anderson 'County community is joining its many neighbors in an all-out, old fashioned Fourth of July community celebra- tion. Adults will exhibit arts and crafts all day the Fourth in the old courthouse in Frank- ston. During the afternoon kids and their pets will congregate in the city park for a contest to see which pet has the most virtues. The Silly Pet Show will bestow prizes for the Wettest Nose, the Waggliest Tail, the Biggest Paws, the Longest Ears, and other such admir- able attributes. There's no entry fee, and no matter what the judge's de- cide...every pet is bound to be a winner. Old Fashioned Gospel Sing- ing will be featured July 5 at 8 o'clock in the football stad- ium, with tickets selling for $2 per person. Many well known gospel groups will perform including the Trinities and the Centuries, also the Curry Family from Jacksonville, and another well known group from Plainview. Prodeeds from the concert will be used for future projects of the Festivals Committee of Frankston's Bicentennial Commission.
