The lady Hornets played their last home game on Friday and won 52-28 against Olgesby and did a fine job of it. I didnít stay for the boysí game, so I have no scores, but I am sure they also won.

I found out this week, that Feb. 6 is National Wear Red Day, when Americans nationwide wear something red on this day to show support for womenís heart disease awareness. Diane Roberts was one of those Americans with her little red dress pin worn proudly on her shirt. Did you know that more women die of heart disease than any other disease? In fact, one in four women die from heart disease.
The risk factors for heart disease are high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, physical inactivity and family history of early coronary heart disease. Having only one of these risk factors can double your risk for developing heart disease.

Mary Heartsill called to tell me of her sister-in-lawís motherís death in Cleburne. Gladys Myers had been living with her daughter, Linda and Darrell Point of Glen Rose. She passed away Jan. 29 at the age of 92. Myers also had three sons, Jim and wife Susan, Glenn and wife Linda all of Cleburne, and Gary and wife Roxanne of Burleson. She also had eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. Funeral services were held Feb. 3 at the Rosser Funeral Home Chapel in Cleburne and burial at Rosehill Cemetery.
Myers and her deceased husband used to run Myers Plant Co. It was located at the end of the street that ran by Piggly Wiggly in Cleburne. When I worked in Cleburne at the airport I found that place and fell in love with them both. They always knew the answer to every question I had about the plants and never minded telling me their secret of how to take care of them. It was a really homey place and I never tired of spending many hours there after work. Our prayers and thoughts go out to all their family friends. They will be missed by many.
