6/23/11----When I was there this weekend I was amazed by the tall green narrow trees. I saw some going to Plainview on the left. Any idea what they are called? They were like a fence, however they were tall trees. I live near Austin and I'm sure I can grow them out there if West Texas can. Thank you, Melissa Martinez

6/24/11----Hi Melissa. I think the trees you were talking about on the west side of I-27 are, I believe, Bradford Pears. They are the prettiest trees and need no pruning..they're just pretty. You probably can Google it and find the tree and see if they will survive there in Austin...I believe they will. I had them planted in Weatherford, TX and they grow hardy there, so they should where you are too. I hope that helps :) Have a wonderful weekend...(Sally and Terry)

6/29/11----Thank you for that information. I will look for them. Have a great day and love the Hale Center Insider. Melissa

06/10/2011----Amen, Son, to your comment about Tom Henderson's kindness. As I was reading T.J.'s article about his grandparents, I thought of that before I even got to your comment. I'm so glad for your comments about Tom.
I would just like to add that not only did he mow the lawn but he also mowed our vacant lot east of the house. I did approach him later expressing our heartfelt gratitude and I offered to pay him, which he very graciously declined.
Also, over the years that I worked for the City of Hale Center I was aware that Mr. Henderson mowed a lot of vacant lots that had been neglected by the "out of town owners". To my knowledge he never got paid for those deeds. To the knowledge of then Mayor Bob Brown and myself, Tom didn't even know who owned the lots nor did he ever approach the city to find out. He was just doing what he could do to help keep Hale Center beautiful!!
It was, and is, the kindness and caring of peope like Tom Henderson that make Hale Center a great place to live.

05/31/2011----I especially enjoyed the article about flying her American flag written by Diann Crawford Dougherty. How privileged we are to have lived in a small town whose residents are patriotic and don't object to our flying the American flag.
I was astonished at two recent stories I saw on a news channel. One was a woman who wanted to fly her flag every day because she was thankful everyday for what the military has done. She, her late husband, and her son had all served in the military; her son had given his life in the war. She simply wanted to show everyone that she loved America and was thankful to the military for her freedoms. She was told by her HOA that she could fly the flag one day, but not every day. How sad. It is reprehensible that rules like that are made to prevent someone from flying the flag at their own home. For patriotism being squelched.
The other story was about a small business who flew the American flag daily, along with several other flags (I believe they were state flags) and received a citation for flying 2 flags too many. The picture was of the front of the building with the flags just higher than the flat roof of the building. My guess would be they were no taller than 2-3 feet above that flat roof. I believe they had about 9 flags, but received the citation for too many flags. These flags were discreet and proudly displayed along the whole front of their building...and shouldn't have been a reason for a citation. The customers of the business objected to the citation...but the business had to pay regardless.
I can't help but compare the difference between those towns and H.C. I don't believe they would have had any objection to the flags in our old H.C. I am so proud that I came from such a great little town. It will always be my hometown...remembered with love, laughter, and tears. Great memories!

7/6/2011----Hi Terry and Sally....I am Langley Fruin class of 1955 HCHS. I have years of stories and gobs of ancient "gossip" from years past about people and things in HC. Nathan Owens (Nat to me) was a very close and dear friend (and still is) of mine from the early school days there. Ask him who taught him to shoot pool and snooker :-) Betty Jo Uptogrove Owens was my first plutonic love, we ate mullberrys off the ground (no need to wash) at my Grandma Johnsons house. Doyle (Smokey), Margaret and Randy Faith are cousins.
Dang, now that I have started the memory train... it is moving along at a fast pace, so I am going to make more coffee and remember...Langley Fruin

He misses Hale Center and would like to see or talk to any and all old friends.......Tj Henderson

It was so nice to see you and visit with you at Marie's (Marie Thomas')90th birthday party. I finally sent an e-mail to all my classmates ('64 - '69 plus a few others) about your radio program and new e-newspaper (Hale Center Insider).

6/13/2011----First of all thank you for sending the link to The Hale Center Insider. I will read it often.
I just wanted to warn you about false emails such as the one warning people about pressing the clear key after getting gas. After receiving this email myself a couple of years ago, I checked www.snopes.com and it is actually false. http://www.snopes.com. I can't begin to tell you how many emails I have received that are fraudulent.
Have a great evening.......Susie Lopez (Class of '78)
Editor's Note: This helped us to be more aware of the false information that's on the Web. Please go to the link and read up on it.
"Thanks Susie"

06/07/2011----I did get your note asking for permission to use me on the "Wizzard of the day" of course it would be O.K. and I will send something to your e-mail address when I can get it written and edited. Looks like you have something good going for you and the community. By the way my knuckles have healed quit nicely.......Eugene Carter - (Hale Center)
