Two ladies very dear to many hearts around the area have been ill of late. Our devoted librarian Billie Hook is back to work and getting stronger every day after not feeling well for quite sometime. She is such an integral part of the elementary school, plus the trailblazer for the formation of our public library, that her absence was greatly felt on many levels. Glad you are back, Mrs. Billie!
Mrs. June Campbell, of Cool, has had a turn in the hospital, and as she and her husband, Soup, are known far and wide for their many volunteer and supportive efforts, many have been very concerned for her. We wish you a speedy recovery, Mrs. Campbell!
