Teams take 1st place in golf tourney

Body
We had a great time spending the day outside at the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce 31st annual Golf Tournament. The Catacon team of Jarred Pickett, Tanner Ragan, Chuck Vititow, Cade Stone, Daniel Roper and Robbie Russell took home the first-place net trophy. The Interstate Body Shop team of Chuck Sickles, Kelly Hair, Haden Sickles, Kason Sickles, Kip Childress and Michelle Blackmon won first place low gross. As usual, Sulphur Springs Country Club was a wonderful hosting venue that always strives to do their best job for us. Thanks again to all who sponsored, provided goody bag items and played in the tournament. We had a great day!

Unwanted clutter

Dear Annie: My parents and my inlaws have a habit of cleaning out their houses by bringing their unwanted things to my house. When we first moved in together, my husband and I thought they were trying to help by giving us things so we wouldn’t need to buy them, but it’s been over a decade, and it continues.

Keeping clear boundaries

Dear Annie: I was given up for adoption at four months old and was adopted by my maternal grandparents. I was raised as an only child, even though I knew who my siblings were and saw them regularly. My biological mother sowed seeds of hatred and division between my siblings and myself at every opportunity.
