WE’RE saddened to remind you that your opportunity for an afternoon in the sunshine will be an hour shorter beginning Sunday. On the other hand, the sun will rise an hour earlier.

DAYLIGHT Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday… you’ll want to set your clock back an hour Saturday night before you drop off to sleep.

OVERTON Healthcare Center – the nursing facility just beyond the tracks on Hwy 135 in Overton – is coordinating a coat and blanket drive through this month. If you’ve got a coat or blanket you think would be appropriate for a senior citizen, please drop it off at that location.

JIM and Debbie Ott were on TV Wednesday evening – strictly as observers.

THEY were on the set of Wheel of Fortune to root for daughter Amy, and apparently it worked. Amy left the show with “the big pot” worth $53,400 – including a new Volkswagen automobile.

JIM is a life-long resident of Kilgore – his father was a doctor here – and Debbie has been here since her family moved to Kilgore while she was a youngster.

DR. Charles Whiteside has been named to a business advisory committee at East Texas Baptist University in Marshall. He’s one of five persons from area businesses on a panel to advise business department faculty on issues of note.

CHARLES, as most know, came to Kilgore to teach chemistry at Kilgore College. On the side, he started a business, testing such things as municipal water supplies. The business prospered, Dr. Whiteside “graduated” from KC and today Ana-Lab is one of the busiest such firms in the country.
