Show of wheels

By Carol Spicer
 
The 2013 Clifton FallFest Crusin’ Main Street Car Show was down in numbers this year with several other car shows being held in neighboring cities on the same day. There were roughly 60 cars and trucks attending the show which is about half of the normal numbers. Another part of the lower numbers might have been the colder early morning weather, affecting the turn-out.

Meridian’s new traditional barber shop

By Simone Wichers-Voss
 
What defined a quintessential small town back in the good old Wild West days? Having a school, a church, a post office, a bank, a saloon, a general store, a courthouse, a jail, a livery stable, and a barber shop. New Meridian resident Kris Toman, being a barber by trade, decided to give Meridian back a traditional barber shop, complete with a candy stripe sign.

Blood Drive

Blood Drive set Tuesday

 

The heat is on in Texas and while you make plans to cool off somewhere, patients in community hospitals still need blood transfusions. Before you head for the lake or another cooler place, remember that Carter BloodCare offers air-conditioned donor centers. Not only can you save up to three lives with one pint of blood, you also get a gift certificate for a pint of Blue Bell ice cream if you give in July.

Summer is the most challenging season to maintain the community blood supply. Donors are fewer in number and the need for blood by local hospitals is higher than usual. Giving blood often is the best way to maintain a quality and sufficient local blood supply. Whole blood donors may give every 56 days and friends and family are invited, too.
