I have the 1994 post almost done..damn it's work..anyhow while I am gathering up pictures and info I thought I would do a West, Texas post..especially since we have had a little excitement around here..Last week some kid made threats to some of his fellow classmates...not the 'I'm gonna kick your ass kind of threats'but the 'I'm getting a gun and gonna blow your ass away' kinda threats..I don't think he was serious but he made them on two different occassions and the parents of the kids weren't waiting to find out..so the kid is in kiddy jail..and we are all dealing with the shock of it..
We are having our Miss West contest and have some very pretty ladies entered in the contest..Lindsey Kreder, Veronica Lenart, Jessica Holecek,Heather Holt,Marie Van Pelt and Bobbi Jo Norton..We're having a blood drive,St.Mary's School is having a carnival, Abbott church is planning a revival,Gerald Church is having a Bazaar,and the West Brethren Church is giving flu shots to anyone 14 or older..
We received 1.5 inches of rain and the burn ban has been lifted..we are expecing more and hopefully we will get some.
