The Window

Talking about fog freezing last week, my daughter has to be at work before 7 a.m. She was so amazed to see frozen fog in the air. She said it was like fine crystals of ice in the air and everything was coated with the fog. Then there was snow and black ice a few days later. It is January.

Roy Orr

We were so sorry to hear that Roy G. Orr passed away Jan. 12. He was 90 years old. Roy’s wife, Mildred, preceded him in death. He is survived by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and extended family. A graveside service was held on Sunday, Jan. 17, at Gillespie-Evergreen Cemetery. Prayers for his family and friends. He will be missed.

Happy birthday to Callen Whitmire on Jan. 22. I hope he has a great day. Wishing a happy anniversary to Lynn and Ronda Whitmire on Jan. 23. Enjoy your day.


Praying for the family of Wayne Harmon, who passed away on Jan. 14. Wayne was 93 years old. Pray for our country and leaders, law enforcement officers, firefighters, clergy and medical professionals.


A silo is a structure for storing bulk materials. Silos are used in agriculture to store grain or fermented feed known as silage. There are several remains of these structures still standing in Cathey’s Creek. We are looking at the history of these, who built them and what they were used for in their day.
