To the Editor: Be sure to notice all the good things that happen here when nay sayers say “Corsicana doesn't change.”

Last Friday night, one of Corsicana's home town boys came back to share his success with us all, Terry Fator. In his brilliant performance at Corsicana High School, he gave a stunning show, sharing his huge talents. He definitely gave honor and tributes for the opportunities he received at the Warehouse Living Arts Center and Corsicana Independent School District. He also recognized Cranston Dodd, David Timmerman and many of his fellow performers during his period here including the Fabulous 5 at the Library in the early days of Derrick Days and his band members.

The stage had truly been transformed by the Palace crew lead by Leah Blackard, Adam Walthall and Tim Brady and the Navarro College Multimedia Department, who turned it into a high-tech well dressed stage.

Last Saturday, there was a grand dedication with another sculptor in honor of Dr. Kent Rogers. The statue is beautiful but the most important part of the dedication, for me, was the tributes given by his son and daughter. They both spoke so honestly about family and how their mother and father have done a lot for the community and also have been there to parent and share their love and nurturing on them. Family values are strong in the community. Hooray!
