I received a wonderful letter from a lady this week. Her name is Mildred Pruitt Sharman. Mildred is a former citizen of Cleburne County and now lives in Montgomery. She will celebrate a big (96) birthday later this month. She commented on the sad passing of Fannie Baber Howle earlier this fall. Mildred and Fannie were classmates at Cleburne County High in 1936. This was the last class to graduate from that particular building. (corner of Burns and Evans Street) Mildred was wondering how many of her classmates might still be around. I am happy to help her with this! If you are or know of anyone who was a member of that class, please let me know.

Jackie Vise fondly told me about his first car. It was a 1940 Ford sedan. Granted, the car had been wrecked, the grill was messed up and the seats were in bad shape. However, if you know Jackie as I know Jackie, you know that he had a plan…and he did! He got a job at Jitney Jungle and worked to pay for repairs. His dear Mother used flour sacks to cover the damaged seats. Bingo! Jackie proudly drove that car to school every day and was proud of it!
Gloria Bennett recalls her very first car with a smile on her face! It was a baby blue 1970 Mustang! It had no air conditioning and no power steering but I know that she looked great driving it!
Please don’t misunderstand…The Ten Commandments are NOT multiple choice.
