PAGE 6B - The Malakoff News - Wednesday, August 22, 2001 If you lose your purse or wallet Trinidad Trivia Continued from page 8A you were diligent, and is a first step toward an investigation (if there ever is one). But here's what is perhaps most important: - Call the three national credit reporting orga- nizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and SS#. The alert means any com- pany that checks your credit knows your information was stolen and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new credit. By the time I was ad- vised to do this, almost 2 weeks after the theft, all the damage had been done. There are records of all the credit checks initiated by the thieves' purchases, none of which I knew about before placing the alert. Since then, no additional damage has been done, and the thieves threw my wallet away this weekend (someone turned it in). It seems to have stopp.ed them in their tracks. The numbers are: Equifax: 1- 800-525-6285; Experian (for- merly TRW): 1-888-397-3742; Trans Union: 1-800-680-7289; Social Security Administration (fraud line): 1-800-269-0271 We pass along jokes; we pass along just about everything. Do think about passing this infor- marion along. It could really help someone. Payne Springs News Continuedfrompage4 [ due to a huge storm. Please continue to pray for Helen Adams as she is still in the hospital. Prayers and get well wishes go to Velma Hines as it has been reported that she is ill. The Cedar Creek Lake Area Crimestoppers are putting to- gether a fingerprinting program for our elderly citizens. Dates and locations will be announced as arrangements are com- pleted. Prayers and get well wishes go to Polly Jennings as it has been reported that she has been "under the weather." Molinda, Les and Richard vis- ited Molinda's parents and other family members and they had a great time. Several fam- ily members went to Bonham and among other fun things they went to a flea market where Molinda found and bought sev- eral cute pigs for her collection. They then enjoyed dinner at a very nice steak house. While there Molinda enjoyed a visit of several hours with a friend throughout her school years, a friendship which began in the first grade. Molinda still does not have the final word on whether or not she will be un- dergoing more surgery. Several members of the Young at Heart groups of Payne Springs Assembly of God Church gathered at the Old West Steakhouse in Athens for fellowship and dinner. I was really shocked when granddaughter April Asay told me that her precious baby boy, Auston is spoiled. Ha! Please pray for my dear friend Nina Burroughs who is ill. Also pray for her husband Don, daughter Julie and above all her new granddaughter Jillian. All are ill and Jillian has been very ill since birth. Please pray for Jesse Harris' nephew who went to visit his aunt Elizabeth Larry before leaving for college last Thursday. While visiting his aunt he was attacked by her bulldog and was taken to East Texas Medical Center in Athens and from there was careflighted to Baylor Hos- pital in Dallas where he has un- dergone two surgeries. He is the son of Cassandra Larry.

Take only teens to the Grand Canyon to impress. We were there 38 years ago and appre- ciated the magnificence. So did the 13-year old this time along with us. She's saving her money to go back at 18 and ride a donkey down into the canyons. But the 11 year- old wanted to catch the squir- rels and rabbits (like we have in our back yard), and the eight year old delighted in scaring us on the edges of the rim of the canyon. In all, the long-needed va- cation was great, and the chil- dren cooperated for fun. The younger two are siblings while the older is a cousin. Three from one family might be di- sastrous. The only downside from the trip was Pa's utter- ing, "I most likely won't ever get to see this (especially the Petrified Forest) again." ************************ When I think of Summer 2001 I know I'll think of it as the summer people killed their own children. From Mildred to the Metroplex to Houston and in places we did not hear about, mothers or fathers killed their own. Mother Teresa once said of abortions, "I can't think of anything more tragic than a Mother killing her own child." Some day I'll rationally think about the Houston murders of the five children. Presently, it brings on pain I cannot explain. t Mr. Banker Continued3%m page 8A insulted Texans, McClintock came right back with a joke about that part of the country. Some told him it was the first time any one had ever gotten the best of the old-timer who became so flustered at McClintock's insulting joke, he left. But others were laughing hard. McClintock tries to get the best out of everything he does. He does not hunt as much as he once did, but he recently re- turned from a trip to New Mexico. "We used to hunt in Raton every year," he recalls. With training in banking busi- ness from Del Mar College in Corpus, McClintock began the Trinidad bank, working there 14 years and helping the businessmen from Trinidad to Seven Points with loans for their business. Of course, he., had the help of many goot[ people he could depend on fof advice. And he could judge character with an inborn in- sight. He recalls Dr. Joe Rosenbloom being an inactive president of the bank who liked to come over every morning for his coffee break and visit with McClintock. When McClintock drove to Austin to get the charter for the bank around 1963, busi- ness was set up first where City Hall is now. Then it was the Fire Department, and the bank rented part of it to set up, "We worked from "can to can't," said McClintock, He also remembers the Trinidad Bank was the first in the area to use computers, reporting to Republic National in Dallas and having a de- pendable employee from Malakoff who drove Corsicana every night and ev- ery morning to, take care of the funds. McClintock's family was in the farming business. His fa- ther was Matthew James, known as Bose, who worked hard and expected his sons to do the same. McClintock, the last surviving of his immedi- ate family, rode a school bus to Malakoff for his education. "Because the school burned in my high school years, we didn't get new football equip- ment until I was a senior. But I played football then," said McClintock. On the bus, he was the first one on and the last one off. "Lots of activity was goiag tin here then," remembers lIcCliniclC ' - ..... "Nipak was starting a new plant, the highway was being worked on, TP&L was con- stmcting a new type of plant. Some time people lined up in the street to cash their pay checks, and we had to have that much money on hand." Construction companies in town included Brown and Root, Stovall Construction, Kellog's Contruction .... With NiPak's business, platinum sheets for instru- meats had to be kept in a bank vault until needed. McClintock's banking expe- riences are a memory now. He spends his days going to his Mankin farm, returning home for a nap, then piddling for two or three hours before the evening news. Healthwise, he jokingly says he has Somezheimers, but six years ago he had to have valve replacement for leakage of blood in his heart. Ten months later, he underwent surgery for five bypasses at Baylor Hos- pital in Dallas. He had gone to a Corsicana doctor for what he thought was pneumonia. The physician told him his trouble was not pneumonia but with his heart and sent him im- mediately to a cardiologist who began setting up surgery for 6 a.m. the next day at Baylor. "I want to go home and think :about this awhile," said McClintock. The physician took McClintock's wife into another room to talk privately with her. In five minutes they were back with McClintoc told, "You'll have surgery at 6 a.m. m the morning." It took about two years for McClintock to recover fully, but he's one of the few who have undergone this surgery and not complained about the neces- sary surgery on a vein in his leg. McClintock enjoys holding the two-month old great-grand- son but needs to quit walking footlogs at his farm. He fell off one doing this recently and hurt his shoulder. "But I got back on later and walked it without falling to show I could," he said. What's that old saying, "It's hard to keep a good man down"? Whoever made that up must have known Glover McClintock.
