It was hard to get news at Buckhead today!

I don’t give up but I sure put in some effort. That is okay we are still here. Dennis and Julie Godbee went out to eat with his family on Friday night to celebrate Dennis’ birthday on January 30. Dennis and Julie went out to eat with Betty and Macon Moore on Saturday. Happy birthday to you Dennis!

Robin Griffin has gone back home to Hawaii after coming to attend her granddaddy’s funeral. Oscar Strange passed away recently. We send our sympathy to Robin and all of her family.

We send out sympathy to Edna Smith. Her cousin Jerry Roberson was killed on Monday. He was hit while riding on a tractor. A drunken woman hit him.

Ethel Norrell a friend of Edna Smith has a birthday on February 5. Happy birthday to you Ethel! Lando Benning has a birthday on February 8. We wish a very special birthday to you Lando!

The Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel will have the Senior Banquet for the Morgan County Baptist Association on February 6 at 6:30 p.m. The church will have a Valentine Banquet at the church on February 13 at 6 p.m.

There will be a men and women’s conference on March 5 at 9 a.m. until noon. The speaker will be John Reed.

On this Monday night there was the caucus in Iowa. I would not know how to begin in this.

I like the way we vote here in Georgia. I have voted since I was 18.

It thrilled me so much to get to vote. I always tried to get a way to go and vote. When I was 20 years old I had my own car. I think very strongly about the person I choose.

When my daughter was in high school a couple of teachers confronted her about her beliefs that she had written about. That was very frustrating to me.

You see I believe in my faith and the right to vote as I choose. My daughter has the same rights, as do all Americans. My oldest brother Elmer Brake died on an aircraft in World War II for all Americans, as did many others.
