You saw the picture in last week’s paper. It was that of the 1963 Heflin Tigers. They were the first untied and undefeated team in the history of the school. Now, YOU are invited to come out and see how great these guys look 50 years later. They would love to see their old and new friends and fans from this area. Coaches, cheerleaders and family members will gather on September 28 at the Wesley Center of the First United Methodist Church . A special invitation goes out to athletes and cheerleaders from other teams and sports. Come by anytime from 4:00 until 5:30 and visit and help celebrate this team. Light refreshments will be served.

I don’t know about you, but I am thrilled to feel a little nip of Fall in the air. Now, I’m not ready to put up the tee shirts and bring out the sweaters. Maybe in a month or so. Experts have predicted TWO things…1. Fall will be full of hay fever and allergy bouts. 2. We will have the coldest winter that we have had for quite some time.
Strange But True
1. The average person makes 1140 phone calls a year. (I wonder if that includes teenagers?)
2. Cockroaches can live more than a week without their heads. They eventually die of starvation.
3. Women blink twice as much as men.
4. Elephants are the only animal with four knees. Now you know…even if you did not want to know!
Until next week…remember…In three words, I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life to this point. “It goes on.”
