God Bless Us, Everyone…

By Dr. Don Newbury

To some, it could be a Cinderella story. Djimonii Jackson, a Howard Payne University senior, was featured in the parade and at the football game as the 2017 Homecoming Queen. Snappily dressed and flashing a disarming smile, she charmed effortlessly. She was escorted by her godfather, Michael Thomas, and also present was her mother, Marsena Alexander, all from Beaumont.

When we headed home early the next day, we saw Djimonii in her “grubbies,” dragging out huge bags of trash from Veda Hodge Dormitory. How could this be, my wife and I wondered.

Highlights of Harkeyville

By D. Harkey

Looks like we made it by the Yule Tide Holiday happy, well fed, as well as respectful of the "Reason for the Season." We still have to get by the holiday for the advent of 2018, though it is mostly a joyous series of celebrations, most folks breathe a sigh of relief when it's finally passed. Seems like a lot of folks mention the fact of barely getting by Thanksgiving and "Boom!"

. . . Christmas is upon us. The Canadians might be a bit more smart as they celebrate Thanksgiving in October.

Lady Indian’s Lexi Wagner pushing the ball.

Midterm grades are due at the end of this week, and just like that the first half of the school year is over!

Last week the 5th graders got a little visit from the Gideon’s and received bibles as special holiday gifts. Thank you to the gentlemen that shared a little bit of their faith with us. The kids were asking to read their bibles all day!

In sports news, the junior high boys played against Richland Springs last week. The visiting team trailed in the first quarter but was in the lead by the half. The Indians tied up the score in the third quarter but the Coyotes didn’t allow any more points from the Indians and instead scored 7 more points themselves, ending the game with a score of 31-38 in favor of the Richland Springs Coyotes.
