Congratulation to all Clinton High School, Junior High, Intermediate, Elementary, Kindergarten and Preschool graduates. As our children move from one grade to another or go from high school onto college or the work force we deliberate on what to tell them as they embark on a new phase of life. I think the best advice we can give our children anytime is, "Do your best." If we all do our best each and every day regardless of the challenges we face then we can feel a true sense of accomplishment and smile with satisfaction at the end of the day. Good luck to all graduates as they move onto their new adventures in learning and in life.

Most of the Tucker family headed to Russellville on Saturday, May 11, to watch with pride as Taylor Tucker graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a 4.0 grade point average. After the graduation, the family dined at a Russellville restaurant where the entertainment from 3-year-old Ella Tucker was much better than the service.

We were saddened by the loss of the home of Tom and Gay Whillock, longtime residents of the community. Their home was destroyed in a fire Saturday night.

Well, it looks like the cold weather is over and those of us that have not planted our gardens had better get with it. After all of the rain the gardens will start to grow very quickly. Just like the grass. I hear noises about time to cut hay already.

This has been a busy time in Scotland. Saturday night was the musical and pie auction at the Lighthouse Christian Fellowship for Bobby Gardner. They had a great time and lots of pies were auctioned off and of course the music was fantastic.

The men at the Scotland Baptist Church cooked breakfast to honor all of the mothers. They did a very good breakfast and it was greatly appreciated. And no one went away hungry.

Have a good week.
