Broken water lines every week

Charles Warner | The Union Times In this week’s News Around Lockhart, Connie Porter writes about the continuing problem of broken waters and their possible cause.


It doesn’t look like we have a chance to keep our heads above water, with the constant broken water lines. This is getting costly, we have to call Tri County to come out to fix the breaks just about every week. I feel (and this is my belief) that until the bridge is completed we are going to continually have this problem. All these heavy trucks and machinery going up and down the roads and back alleys are too much. I know they have to come in and out to build our bridge, and the bridge will be amazing when it’s done. Just bear with us for the next three years. We’re trying to find a solution.

Amazing Report

We did get an amazing report from our water reading last week. So the ban has been lifted on boiling water. We really want to thank Carl Alexander, Ted Garner, and Jay for making this possible.

Sympathy

My sympathy goes to Holly Parkins and Freddie Baldwin for the loss of Louise (McKellar) this week. Such a beautiful lady.

I heard that Nancy Crocker (Esther Sue Eave’s sister) passed away, also. She left here quite a few years ago, but I would run into her at our continuing education classes (a fellow beautician).

Also Ellis Lancaster’s Dad passed away.

I am so sorry for all the families.

Finally Cleaned Up

Chuck and I finally got my back yard cleaned up of all the cedar tree branches. What a picky job.

The first time, a month ago, the leaves were green and not picky. This time it was all dry and when you lifted a branch the needles went in your eyes, and shoes, they really were uncomfortable.

All I need to do is get rid of the porch in my back yard. When it landed there, it was supposed to go at the back door, but the guys said it was so heavy that’s as far as they could get it. Lazy!!

I just love having all these wonderful guys in my life — they hide from me. I ask something of them and maybe in a couple of years they remember.

An Old Credit Card

Went to the supply house yesterday (Sally’s), went in for one thing for one of my customers, and bought a basket full instead. Went to use my credit card and it kept getting declined. I turned to Gina and asked “What have you bought.” She said let me see that card. It was last year’s and I forgot to get rid of it, she took it away from me, and I pulled out the new one. Thank goodness the girls that work there really know us so there was no embarrassment just a good laugh at me. As usual.

Visit Red

Red Walker went to Columbia Farmer’s Market this week and has a lot of fresh produce and fruit (Pearl told me). It would be nice to go by and see what he’s got. You know his health is failing and this little store is his life, he loves to have people in to see him. Red is 92 years old.

Fish Camp Bulldozed

For those of us that liked eating at Chester Cove Fish Camp. I went by Wednesday and the bulldozer was finally tearing the backside of the building down. I don’t know why it took so long to get started, and of course it’s not my business, but now I wonder if they’ll rebuild. You know at first that’s what the owner said, but it’s been so long he might have gone elsewhere. The food was so good.

Shrine Club Serving Steak

This is the weekend for the Chester Shrine Club to be serving steak and I won’t be going, Chuck will be working and I will be cutting weeds. But if you are looking for a place to eat, it’s steak, potato, and salad bar for $15. You can’t beat that, and you’ll see a lot of Lockhart friends out there.

Economics Lesson

” A recession,” claimed the stockbroker, “is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job. And panic is when your wife loses her job.”

Pursuing His Dream

My nephew gave up his lucrative job to become a writer, “Have you sold anything yet?” I asked him one day. “Yes” he said. “My car and my television.”

Well, this is it, my mind is blank, so I will say good night and please call me with your news. 1-864-545-6652.
