School closure Friday, April 15 in Honor

By Melissa Freeman
 
Lollie Ann Adams was a soft-spoken woman, but that quietness did little to hide the passion within. Lollie was passionate about her God, her family, her friends, her city and her school district. And she was passionate about Rev. Donnie Adams, who she went to be with last weekend. If there was ever a model marriage, Donnie and Lollie had one. The memory of those two together can teach us all a vitally important lesson. They not only loved each other; they didn’t neglect each other. They knew what it took to make a marriage last and get better every year. We have few examples like that these days, and we need to cherish the memory of the Adams legacy.

Petition not on May ballot

by Dennis Phillips
 
Citizens of Hearne organized a ballot proposal that would order the City of Hearne to hire and perform a forensic audit. That ballot proposal will not make the May election as hoped; instead it looks as though the proposal will be challenged by the city in court. In a special called meeting on Monday, the Hearne City Council met behind closed doors to discuss the petition and the action in which they would direct City Attorney Bryan F. Russ to take on the city’s behalf.
