Linda lost her bracelet
Linda’s turquoise and silver bracelet was with her last weekend when she walked into the Half Moon Saloon for the Melvin Seals concert. When she walked out, it wasn’t. It was a wedding present from her father-in-law, a sweet guy, and she doesn’t want to break his heart. If you know where it is, or know someone who does, call Linda at 476-7563.
EVHS is Sweat City Monday
Eagle Valley High School Two-A-Day football practice begins 8 a.m. Monday with a team meeting in the EVHS auditorium. For the uninitiated, Two-A-Day football practice is a form of purgatory where teen-agers go to pay for the sins of driving their parents’ cars that way. For the EVHS version, players need to have a current physical, insurance, cleats and a lunch. Practices will be 9 a.m. to noon, and again at 1-3:30 p.m. all week. If you have questions, call John Ramunno at 328-2301.
Scotts rule the links
Blake and Mariah Scott took an oversized driver upside the head of their competition at Cotton Ranch’s recent young folks’ tournament. They had 32 players on 16 two-person teams who enjoyed one of the best uses of real estate ever conceived on God’s Green Earth – golf. Mariah and Blake rolled to a 36, topping Maddie Garton and Billy Iverson, and Dan Sample and Kyle Lottman. Both those teams logged a 40, but Dan and Kyle took second in a scorecard playoff. It’s a beautiful thing to see young people working at something that completely ignores the presence of Empty-V. If you see Cotton Ranch Head Pro Chris Woolery, give him a big High Five for his dedication to America’s Youth, then buy something really expensive in the pro shop.
