State run update: Guin ran great! She got 72nd place out of the 100 runners that competed in the girls 3A race! We are SO PROUD of her for qualifying to run at state as a freshman individual! ❤️❤️

Coach Lipscomb didn’t have her phone during the race to take pictures 🤦🏻‍♀️ but Coach Morris came in clutch with a video of the start of the race (Guin is in blue in the bottom left of the shot) and of her finishing the race!

Howard Gardner American Legion Post 85 was proud to sponsor Everett Toudouze, of Palestine High School, for the 2020 Texas Boys State. We have extended an invitation for Everett and his parents to speak at our Post once in-person meetings resume. Many thanks go out to the American Legion Texas Boys State Committee for being able to make this happen. 659 Texas students got to be a part of history, while Boys State was canceled entirely in most states.
My auction Mentor and great friend. Obituary for Carl "Ed" Jones Carl “Ed” Jones, age 77, of Wyandotte, OK passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. Ed was born on April 27, 1943 to Carl and Dorothy (Kitts) Jones in Stella, MO. He grew up in Joplin and graduated from Joplin High School in 1961. After graduation Ed attended community college. On April 22, 1965, Ed married the love of his life, Kathleen Roberts in Joplin, MO. Ed began working as a Brakeman for the Missouri Pacific Railroad, later advancing into Management. He was then transferred throughout the U.S. and retired after 25 years. Ed was a multitalented man, employeed as an Auctioneer in Texas and most recently as a Realtor for Remax Grand Lake, for the last 20 years. Spending time on his 40 acre farm, mowing, tending to the animals and being outdoors are some of the activities that Ed enjoyed. What brought him the most joy, was making people laugh and bringing smiles to faces. He was a jovial, larger than life man that never met a stranger. His clever, quick wit and great sense of humor will be dearly missed! Ed was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Rick Jones. Left to carry on his legacy, wife, Kathleen Jones, son, Mardy Jones (Audrey) of Little Rock, AR, daughter, Kelley Jones of Nairobi, Kenya, sister, Tena Jones of Vinita, OK, brother Thad Jones (Julie) of Ft Lauderdale, FL, grandchildren Mardis Jones and Jesse Jones & special friend, Jennifer Landers and many nieces and nephews. Memorial services will be at 11am Saturday,June 13, 20220 at Nichols-Stephens Funeral Chapel. Donations may be made to Second Chance Pet Rescue in Ed’s memory. Arrangements entrusted to Nichols-Stephens Funeral & Cremation Services. Online condolences may be made at ‪www.nicholsfuneralandcremation.com‬. To send flowers or a memorial gift to the family of Carl "Ed" Jones please visit our Sympathy Store.

There was a rollover accident on 19/287 in Elkhart today. Any information?
Want a real story to write about? How about a story of the slumlord Clyde Crum and the crap homes he rents out. They are not even substandard, they are in need of being bull dozed over. How could anyone in their right mind, consciously rent out the run down homes he does.
