Fire!. As I arrived home yesterday, I saw a lot of smoke south of us. I asked Pam is Grandpa was burning brush piles, but she said no, there was a fire in the pasture south of Daddy's place. They had just called the Sheriff's department. A Booneville officer arrived shortly thereafter, and immediately called the fire department, which arrived shortly, and went to work. It took maybe an hour, but they finally got it controlled, but not before it had gotten into the brush on the perimeter of that pasture. It actually crept over onto Daddy's property in a couple of places. Had it not been the green season, it might have been a major problem. And, naturally, 82-year-old Grandpa was right down there in the midst of it, working to keep the fire under control.

Sister Alice Kennedy. Sunday morning, on the way to church at Pilgrim's Rest, Elder Cal Kennedy and Sister Alice, and their daughter Loyce, were involved in an auto accident. Bro. Cal and Sister Loyce were injured, but not seriously. However, Sister Alice had a heart attack in the ambulance on the way to the hospital and died. She was a true Old Baptist, and wonderful, sympathetic and affectionate lady who will be missed so much by the members of the Salem Association and all who knew and loved her.
