Memories of Central Ward School, teachers

There are two column subjects that bring in more comments than anything else — Ashburn's Ice Cream and Central Ward School. We've written several times about Ashburn's and a couple of times about Central, the future of which is iffy, but Beth Bowling of Pottsboro, who grew up in Denison, sent a very good remembrance of the school and I think readers interested in the school would be interested in what she recalled.

Samuel A. Flagg (Po Sam), the Legend

Victor Brown of Denison placed on Facebook this week a story that I think will ring a bell with a lot of Denison and Bryan County people. Victor thinks the article was written about 1983. He said he didn't know where he got it, but thought it came from a book about Colbert.

Watch out for hackers

Those of us who use and depend on our computers on a daily basis, whether it is for personal use, business or maybe a someone like me who writes a column and submits it for publication by e-mail, are familiar with the words "hacked" or "compromised."

Following the moving of the historic Fairbanks House

My friends Mavis Anne Bryant, Billy Holcomb and a few others have been posting pictures of early day Denison businesses and houses on Facebook recently and I enjoy seeing all of them. One popped up last week that brought back many memories. It wasn't in a distant "yesterday" or at least it seems to me more recent since I followed the moving of the historic house down a giant hill.
