Sorry that I was under the weather last week and did not put anything into the paper. I have so many allergies and the pollen did a number on me. Maybe It will get better now that the Privets are about through blooming. At least we did not get all of the rain they predicted so now the ground can dry up and everyone can fix the ruts where they have gotten stuck.

We are saddened by the death of Durward Jackson this week. His service was on Friday and there was a large attendance. Durward and his wife Yvonne both worked for the Scotland School District for several years. Someone made the comment that Mr Jackson was one of the best bus drivers Scotland ever had.

Barnett Bruce will have surgery on his hip on Monday May 22. Prayers will be welcomed.

Remember that on June 3 the First Saturday Breakfast will be at 8 a.m. and after we get things cleaned up they will start preparation for the Alumni Banquet in the evening. We hope all is well attended and everyone has a good visit and a great time.

If anyone has Scotland News they can call James Burns at 592-3935 and he will see that it gets into the news.
