Freak storm leaves lasting impression

By Margaret Salvaggio

The afternoon, around 5:00 p.m., last Friday was like any other afternoon except for one little difference the floodgates were opened and the wind was blowing the rain sideways. The water on Highway 6 coming into Hearne from the north was swallowing the road, as the rain just got heavier in the downpour. The outside lane from Love’s Truck Stop all the way into the city was almost covered completely in water from it raining so fast and so hard and not giving the water a chance to run off into the gutters.

When life gives you lemonade … make an animal happy

By Margaret Salvaggio

What was considered a silly idea for four young little girls became a reality when after they got together and put together a lemonade stand outside their house.
