Douglas County Herald
Correspondent of the Week
Featuring … Joanne Wood
The Holt community is an area between Highways 95 and 181 on East 76, and Joanne Wood, our community correspondent, brings us the news from that Douglas County neighborhood.
The column is titled Random Ritings, and she started writing the column in July 1966.
Joanne has been a resident of Douglas County for 44 years; she came to this area in July 1966.
In previous years, Joanne and husband Russell owned the Cabool Enterprise newspaper. Russell also taught school.
However, throughout the years, farming has been their mainstay.
As a parent, Joanne enjoys each and every opportunity to spend time with family, which includes 3 daughters and 6 grandchildren. This is a wonderful challenge for Joanne and Russell since family members are scattered from Cabool to Texas.
We appreciate your many contributions and commitment as a community correspondent for the Douglas County Herald.
