From the Smith County Pioneer

I made an agreement with my wife, I don't try to run her life and I don't try to run mine.

A drunk phoned the police to report that thieves had been in his car. "They have stolen the dashboard, the steering wheel, the brake peter and even the accelerator." he said.
However, before the police investigation could start, the phone rang a second time and the same voice said, "Never mind. I got into the back seat by mistake."

Minutes - Downtown Optimists, June 21th

 There was a much larger crowd for the meeting than had been for a long time. It was very thrilling to see all those folks. The recently retired principle of Lowman Hill, Russ Hutchins spoke about how much the students looked forward to having our members spend some time with them. Besides thanking our club for volunteering, he also recognized Tina & Bill Gannaway and his sister Barbara Shinn for their part in putting the effort together and keeping it going.
Brian Cole returned from speaking a few weeks ago to thank the club for the reading program at the Detention Center. He emphasized the importance of working with the kids at the center. Although, they typically are not there long, they respond to the attention and interaction.
