Gause Lady Bears junior high basketball team won the championship of their own tournament in overtime on Saturday. The tournament was held at the school gym on Friday and Saturday. The GJH boys basketball team will host a tournament this Friday and Saturday back at the gym. If you get a chance, go see these teams from around our area play.

Gause Athletic Booster Club will have a concession stand in the gym, so you don’t have to worry about going hungry. Also, the junior high National Honor Society, student council and cheerleaders will hold a bake sale/silent auction on Saturday.

RoseAnn Ely is home after spending some time in a Houston hospital. According to her daughter Roxie, she has certain limitations, including no visitors until she goes back to Houston to see her doctor. Keep her in your prayers.

Travis Neely is home and doing nicely after a procedure relating to heart problems. Glad you are better Travis.

Thankful for the rain we have had. The burn ban has been lifted until Feb. 1 so burn carefully.

Girl Scouts here in Gause are into their yearly Girl Scout cookies sales.

Grandson Jaxon Hayles is playing on a youth basketball league team in Rockdale and his mom Kristi, Wayne and I, and Jaxon’s dad Bryan Hayles and grandmother Kathy Hayles, went to see the team play on Saturday. Jaxon then went home with his dad for the weekend.

Trisha and Gary Shaw were there to see their granddaughter play a game and little Avery Wadlington was with a relative to see a cousin play. Just about everywhere you go you will meet up with someone you know. A busy place as there were two games going on at a time.
