Congratulations to new grandparents Rhonda and Dan Goble. Grandson James Daniel Holtsclaw was born on Aug. 30, weighing 8 pounds 4 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. James Daniel is the son of Rhonda's daughter, Ashlee Williams Holtsclaw.

I hear that several area folks did well in competition at the Indiana State Fair. Jeanne Shupe won a first and second place for her "frizzled" chickens. Brenda Kennedy won second place for her molasses cookies. Mary Lou Hawkins received an honorable mention for her personalized baby blanket and a third place for her counted cross-stitch picture.

There has been a change in the Mt Pleasant Church homecoming celebration. It had been previously announced that the Good twins would be performing. We have since learned that one of the twins has suffered a heart attack, but is doing well after surgery. The homecoming committee will soon announce who the replacement entertainment will be.
