THORNTON SENIOR NEWS

Happy New Year to one and all. I hope your New Year’s Eve was better than mine. My neighbor had a yard party with people coming and going, parking in front of my house with their loud pickups and cars. There were several different autos with the loud Boom Boxes blasting until 1:30 am plus the firecrackers from all over. Makes for a short nights rest when you have to work on Sunday’s like I do. The last time, one of about eight times I went to them to turn it down, I was asked to join the party. I declined, between the funeral that day, work the next and all the fact that their house dog hates me and now leaves their yard to come at me I just stayed in the house with the T.V. turned up. Our favorite food was served today for us. Chicken and Dumplings is the number one pick for most everyone and it was served to us. We will be pleasantly surprised to know that it is being served to us again on the 5th. Our only complaint is there’s not enough! We love it.

As the song goes, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; everywhere I go.”

The same can be said of winter. All the leaves that were still on anything I had are now gone, blown away with the wind and then there’s the ice I had to break so my dogs could drink. I even had to wear something with long sleeves. That was a first for me since last winter.

Sam brought us another pretty good meal that everyone enjoyed. We all ate until we got our fill then most hurried home for a much needed nap.

Our group was of thirteen and they were Raye Spivey, Sandra Spivey, Alma McCurry, Helen Hawes, Lonah and Bob Walters, Joe Brown, Bobbie Reynolds, Linda Watson, Jane Carpenter, Pat Jones, one unnamed and myself.

Limestone County commissioners heard a note of thanks this month from one of the smaller towns in the county for the help the county provides them in maintaining and repairing their roads.

Thornton Mayor Kenneth Capps expressed gratitude from the town he represents to commissioners court at its Dec. 13 meeting, for the county’s using the Road and Bridge Department’s heavy machinery and personnel to improve the town’s roads.

“I’ve come today to say something that probably you don’t hear very often,” Capps began, introducing himself to those who may not have recognized him.

“I want to tell you how much I appreciate what y’all have helped us do, especially you and you,” he said, pointing to different members of the court.

New Rules Could Hurt Low-Income Consumers

 

 

Dallas, TX (Date) – A payday loan or cash advance is a short-term, small-dollar, high-risk, high-cost loan. In order to obtain a payday loan, a borrower goes to a payday store, presents proof of income, such as payroll deposit advice, writes a postdated check to the lender for the principal plus fees and leaves the store with cash. New regulations proposed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau would limit credit options and damage the lifestyle of low-income consumers, argues Kathryn A. Reed in a new study by the National Center for Policy Analysis.

“The proposed payday lending rules are heavy handed, particularly coming from an agency whose authority has been subject to scrutiny by the courts.” says NCPA Senior Fellow, Pamela Villarreal.

New Payday Lending regulations would hurt credit access:

Due to the wintery weather that blew in Thursday in the early morning hours and was expected to last all day, a decision was made to not open for our luncheon.

Rather than risk sickness and or injury to anyone it seemed best to opt out on this today, everyone stay home where they would be safe and warm. There are so many with health issues, some with serious ones and it could be very hard to get over the most minor illness any time of the year.

We want only the best for each of our people and will do hopefully what is in their best interest. Pray for milder weather nest Thursday and I look forward to seeing everyone then.

Be safe, stay warm and dry, Thank you.

FSB TRAVELERS ENJOY A DECEMBER VISIT TO NEW YORK CITY

 

 

Members and friends of FSB Travelers just returned from a 5-day tour of New York City. Each day was filled with exciting events.

Monday was a day of travel as a bus picked up the travelers from Farmers State Bank in Fairfield and took everyone to DFW for the flight to New York. Once everyone was settled in their rooms, it was time to hit the streets and eat everyone’s first meal in New York. Some chose to eat at Rosie O’Grady’s while others chose Azalea’s. Dinner was followed by a bus tour of New York at night and walking around Times Square.

After breakfast on Tuesday, a step-on guide led the group on a city tour. The first stop on this tour was at Central Park. Everyone enjoyed walking through part of the park and taking some really nice pictures of the area. The second stop was at the Eatery where everything inside the shopping area was from Italy.
