Norwood Gleanings


I want to say Happy Anniversary to those that have it in February. I don’t know of any this week though.

The high school girl’s basketball team took second place at the Mansfield tournament. They just could not beat Houston. They were ahead at one time, but they made a come back and out-scored Norwood.

The girls play at home Thursday against Conway and home on the 8th against Ava. The boys play on Friday at Gainesville. Then they start a tournament at Halfway on the 8th.

Homecoming will be set for February 19. It had been canceled earlier due to weather.

Don’t forget there will be no jamboree this Friday night, due to lack of interest.

I noticed that E Hwy. will be closed the 8th and 9th for roadwork from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. So make plans to take the back roads around on Thomas road by the cemetery.

Curtis Pruett is taking a chemo pill everyday and will have radiation next week sometime. We wish you a speedy recovery.

Congratulations to Bill and Jennifer (Boykin) Dodson on their new son born Jan. 20.

The auction across the tracks is under new management called Peddler’s Wagon at 4 p.m. Steve Cantrell is owner and auctioneer.

Bobby McGraw and his wife, Cindy, are starting up an exercise program at our church, Union Grove, early Saturday morning at 8 a.m. It is for anyone that wants to come and work out.

The men at Union Grove have a men’s Bible study at 6:30 on Tuesday nights. You might want to take advantage of this night because there’s no women allowed. It is also open to all denominations. They have a lot of testimonies.

Don’t forget your fire department dues. You can pay at the bank or city hall.

The neighbors went down and cut up some wood for Robbie and Jessica Owens. We wish them well too. Robbie and son, Noah, had head surgeries and are doing great.

Thought: Never give up. “I Can’t” was on the losing side, “I Can’t” fell down and simply died, “I’ll try” came and took his place, “I’ll try” helped to win the race.

If you have any news or anniversaries call 576-7353. Until next week, God bless our little town.
