Life-saving help

To the Editor: What began as a fun day feeding our cattle transitioned into a bad accident. We could not help ourselves at all.

While working with large bales of hay, Earl fell and was pinned upside down under the side of the hay hauler with his feet between two metal bars. I could not move Earl. We called on God who made all things and knows all things. He is always faithful to hear our cries and answer.

I also called the 9-1-1 operator, who began working hard to find where we were located due to the fact that we were working on private property outside of Corsicana in a large pasture.

After about 25 minutes, Earl began to lose consciousness. I then said “Lord, where are you? Please help Earl.” Deputy Keith Lewis and another man came running into the pasture where we were. Behind these men came the ambulance with two paramedics. They stayed with us and made sure there were no broken bones.

We owe our lives to them. May God bless them to overflowing. Thanks so much to all of you,

Gratefully, Virginia and Earl Bush

Missing sign sought

To the Editor: The citizens of Oak Valley Crime Watch would like to ask for the return of our "New" Oak Valley Lane road sign. The new sign was posted and stolen within a few days.

The sign was purchased to assist our residents and visitors as a visual aid in locating Oak Valley Lane in the evening time. There is no street light at the road and the turn sits on a steep curve.

Stealing our street sign is a Class B misdemeanor and carries a fine of up to $2000.00. We will offer a small cash reward for it's return, no questions asked.  

We  believe that stealing signs is not worth going to jail, having a criminal history and paying fines. Thank you.

Oak Valley Crime Watch

Please spay and neuter

To the Editor:

You came to us as a rescue — an emergency.

From an owner who left you to battle so much illness and neglect,

Your tiny frail kitten body could not overcome.

Six weeks of medical care could not reverse

The first six weeks of your little life.

Ravaged by ringworm and mange from too many animals

and no medical care.

We fought for your Life,

but we were too late in the game

To save this sweet little kitten.

Your name was Sparrow.

Linda Click

(Sparrow Fund set up with Dr. Waylon Ivie, Animal Care Clinic)
