    Thought for the week: Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.

    I had to write my column on my phone email, which is very time consuming to say the least.

    Hopefully, spring is right around the corner. Don’t forget Daylight Savings Time begins on March 13. Oh yeah, I can’t wait.

    Congratulations to our very own News Reporter Vanessa Hurst and Editor Doug Ponder on winning first place for their 2015 fall sports preview. Way to go!

    Sunday was Communion Sunday at Lane Lincoln and First Baptist.

    Last Sunday, Ms. Lovester Wilkinson and her daughter Carolyn Wilkinson of Stanford were the guests of our Black History Sunday at First Baptist. They are the mother and sister to our pastor Reverend Jerry Wilkinson. Ms. Lovester gave a presentation of the flag regarding the slave era and how they used them as a way to escape slavery to freedom. Her daughter Carolyn assisted her in displaying the various quilts that were made by Ms. Lovester.
