Union Summer League registration is underway
My article last week drew Anne Duett out of hiding and we had a nice phone chat Saturday. She told me that she uses old-time methods to predict weather. She knew we were going to have a colder-than-normal winter by watching the birds, squirrels and other animals in her yard.
Unlike animals that escape to safety when the temperatures drop, plants have to withstand whatever comes their way. The cold temperatures can cause future damage to our plants. Some symptoms of cold damage may not even be seen until the hot summer weather.
Looking down on it from above, it’s fairly easy to see. The outline of it honestly seems unmistakable. What can’t be seen from ground level becomes clearer as you back away.
Before 1900, Dr. Felix Horne, a doctor and surgeon in Old Town Union, owned a two-story mercantile store on the second lot behind the NW corner of Decatur Street and Jackson Road. His medical office and that of Dr. J.N. Whittle were located in the back of the store, which also housed apartments upstairs. Dr. Horne lived in the area of 606 E.
Born at Newton Hospital, April 30, 1962, Allen Wayne Amis was delivered by Dr. Austin P. Boggan. He was the second oldest of four boys, with their parents being Edsel Maurice (Reese) Amis and Ola Mae Amis. Though his father has passed away, Miss Ola Mae, is almost 84 and, I’m happy to report, is doing well.
It is raining right now on this Sunday night as I start this column. Most times I sleep well when it rains, but tonight I fell asleep in my recliner for an hour or so. It appears I got my “nap out” as my Mom used to say.
