PAGE 8A - The Malakoff News - Wednesday, August 22, 2001 Trinidad News i i i ,i Im, i, , , i Mr. Banker: Wylie Glover McClintock went into the banking business in Sinton, met a female clerk next door working in a variety store, and the two have been married 52 years, seldom go- ing anywhere without the other. Bea and Glover are the par- ents of three children: Wylie who just became a Grandpa with his son James' son. He also has a daughter Katie in college. He and his wife live in Star Harbor. Then Steve and his wife have two children, Jeff and Eric, and live in Cisco. That leaves Janet married to Hank Skeleton of Athens with two children, Spencer and Sa- rah. Sarah is a junior in high school and the youngest grand- child. "My kids are about one year By Emily G. Lundy At a young 72 years of age, McClintock, with a Scottish heritage, has lived a full life and is only now slowing down a "tad." McClintock was in the bank- ing business for 34 years. "I never got rich doing that, and I worked harder at it than any- thing else," he concludes. Born in Tool, the "chop crop" of six children, Glover was named by his dad who wanted to name one of his children "Glover." Finally Mother re- lented with the sixth one. She learned why "Glover" was a desired name years later from a cousin in Alabama. McClintock's dad once had an old girlfriend named Glover. At a young age, McClintock Coach Ronny Miller apart. One man in Sinton told me if we did not slow down, there wouldn't be any room around our dinner table," laughs McClintock. For 18 years the McClintocks lived in Sinton then came to Trinidad, eventu- ally building a home on Flagg Lake in 1965. McClintock has also worked briefly for TP&L and for 14 years was in mobile home sales in Seven Points, a job he took at the right time and the place. The McClintocks have been to Scotland, and when one of the many gatherers at a tav- ern (entire families go at night to drink and tell wild stories) Continued on page 6B anuclpates strong season Cemetery workers : 'turnees.

Threatening rain clouds made the heat a non-issue as did the rain, but much was accomplished by a few people. Some are suggest- ing an all day work time, in- cluding eating, cleaning, en- tertainment, and fellowship once a year in the future.

Ballou Hines con- tinues to have health prob- lems as do Harvey and Johnny Tubbs, Vicki Waits, Carol Cathey, Margaret Fontenot, Roger Fontenot, Chuck Easterling, John Sh- annon, Doug Gunnels, and Johnnie Bell Martin. John D. Cartlidge may be facing serious problems with his neck. Annetta Ardoin has im- proved as has Billie Jack- son, Alma Harem, George Tubbs, Doug Gunnels and Riley Jock. Marcus Allen, a middle-schooler, had to have day surgery on his hand that was healing from a bad burn earlier in the summer. An infection showed up overnight, and doctors were afraid he might have a deep infection, but everything was not as serious as it might have been. Marcus is on the mend again. *********************** Remember to drive slowly in the school zone this week and for the next 187 days. ,,Remember, to 9, the one- way drive in front of the school from east to west when school is beginning and letting out. *********************** Channel 4 had an interest- ing focus on the Trinity River Sunday. Set in the Metroplex, the story showed Bob Phillips of Four Country fame in a boat with John McKinney who wants to change the image of a river that has been hurt by man. McKinney of Duncanville loves the Trinity and thinks its bad reputation is unfair. He is writing music "Trin- ity Passage" to reveal the sounds of the river then hav- ing it performed by the Duncanville High School Band when finished. Besides having a beauti- ful name, the Trinity River has long been my favorite river. My husband has talked of writing about it before. The pollution in this river surrounded by trees, many now extinct in other parts of the world, is tragic. I am not partial, but one of the prettiest spots on the river is in Trinidad, looking south of the bridge when the banks are deep, thickly cov- ered with vines and ground cover. The lazy waters take one away from a too-busy world for a short while. Even with pollution, ani- mals of varied numbers and species call the river home. I read a wise man said "You can't push a river," and he used man's life as an analogy. This is deep think- ing, but in analyzation, it makes sense. I am not ashamed. We used the government "re- fund" to take a vacation, go- ing west to the Petrified For- est, Painted Desert, Grand Canyon and Four Corners. We left in too big a hurry last Sunday as we wanted to hear a beloved minister speak at a church in Mabank and at the last minute remembered the tiro of the service had been moved up 30 minutes. We took off rapidly with three grandchildren, ages 13, 11, and 8, luggage, maga- zines, cameras, a tent, one single ...... ,.portable. mattress, four folding chairs, but no pillows, blan- kets, coats or warm cloth- ing except for my black vel- veteen pants. Oh yes, I left my sack of shoes and had only my slippers I use mostly for houseshoes. In Arizona we found hot days and cold nights. We stayed in agaOtel in Gallup, N.M. thin'camped the next nighti the Grand Canyon. Before morning we were all in our SUV with Pa turning the heater on every two hours to enable thawout. I slept in two sets of clothes, especially my vel- veteen pants with my legs and feet inside a robe and my arms in the legs of an- other pair of pants. I had the only pillow, a bath pillow, hard as cement when in- flated that came as a Mother's Day gift when we Continued on page 6B TEDC makes commercial land purchase This summer the Trinidad Economic Development Corporation bought 25 acres plus six lots of land between the VFW and Oak Street, land which fronts Highway 31. Helen Covey-Carter, president, said the land for economic growth, and all avenues of getting diversi- fied industry are being stud- ied for bringing in busi- nesses. Soon, the process of cleaning off the land will start. Much detailed study goes with a project of this kind, but hopefully some- thing will happen in the next year.
