My brother-in-law Roy Gene Miller, sister Edith’s husband, suffered a major heart attack on Tuesday of last week. He had open heart surgery on Wednesday and as of Monday morning is still on life support. He has also had a stroke during this time. Please keep he and his family in your prayers.
Milam County had five participants in the Distinguished Youth of Texas Scholarship and Recognition Program that was held over the weekend in San Antonio. Calla Vinton and Natalia Smith represented Gause, Abigail Olson and Mary Brown represented Milano and there was another young lady from Thorndale. I do not remember her name. We are very proud of these young ladies. Kristi Lee and Jaxon, Kelly Cooper and Cameron, Leah Lee and I joined Renee and Jerry Vinton, Seth and Isaac at the Sunday af ternoon program in which Calla was a part of. She placed first in the scrap booking category. Calla came home with a big trophy and a beautiful smile on her face.
