Easter in the park

The Banks annual Easter in the Park took place this past weekend at the Payne Kemp Park in Calvert where hundreds of community members showed up for a day of festivities.

The kids enjoyed a day full of Easter egg hunting, face painting and bouncy houses while the parents listened to Kara Gipson who spoke to the community about Autism awareness and Candidate James Green who answered questions and concerns about his campaign.

Jordan Grimes the son of the host took home the $100.00 Easter egg prize for the third year in a row and both parents and children alike showed off at the “hit dat nae nae “ dance competition.

Dedric Grimes would like to thank the community of Calvert and everyone involved in making Easter in the park a success over the last seven years.

Digging up the past

About 60 Blinn students under the direction of Drs. Michelle Raizor and Dawn Marshall visited Camp Hearne on Friday with garden trowels and earth sifting frames. They dug and sifted through areas around a mess hall in Compound One, near the Kneeling Lady Foundation.

The students found the usual large number of 1940s nails, some sheets of ancient-looking tin, a lot of pieces of Camp clay pipes and a marble that was probably part of the decorative boarder around a flower bed. During the dig this time last year, the Blinn class students found a lot of connecting pieces—hardware from German rucksacks and combat belts, pieces that would have held knives, canteens, gun holsters, etc.

Working together for the common good

Robertson County and City of Hearne officials share a common desire to create jobs and develop greater opportunities for county residents to work near their homes. In addition, these entities routinely explore opportunities to pool governmental resources to reduce expenses and promote the common good.

The city and county have long collaborated on trying to get and keep quality health care (Rob Co EMS, St. Joseph Express, and BVCAA) available to local residents. The county has gotten two water grants to help the city better serve rural customers south of town.

Calvert School Board faces frustrated community

The Calvert School Board faced a frustrated, often angry group of parents and concerned citizens on Tuesday night during its April regular meeting. Several parents asked to speak during the Board’s open session but many made clear they had hoped for much more. A petition had been circulated the week before asking the board to address three issues: “Need for certified teachers, behavior of the Athletic Department Staff, and maintenance and condition of school buses.”

Fire devastates home

Flames could be seen from miles away as a two-story house on Old Hearne Rd. and River Ridge Rd. burned to the ground Thursday night, April 10. Fortunately, the family of 5 got out safely. The fire was reported to volunteer fire departments across the county just before 7 pm. Neighbors reported an explosion before flames erupted from the house. Units, many bringing tanker trucks full of water, responded within minutes—Hearne was first on the scene followed by the Blackjack and Wheelock VFD’s. Next Calvert and Bremond, along with one of the Brazos County precinct fire departments, were called to the scene. Fortunately, a hydrant was nearby so trucks were able to pour lots of fire unto the fire, which was already spreading to nearby lots.

Still, the fire was not extinguished until late Thursday night—after midnight-- and units returned the next day to put out hot spots.

Hearne Council candidate lends a hand

Hearne City Council candidate Hazel Embra donned her apron and helped kids learn how to cook at the Boys and Girls Club last Tuesday. Luminant’s Steve Jenkins was on hand for a visit and he couldn’t tell what Ola Mae Redmon (Club cooking instructor), Assistant Embra, and the Club kids were making but he testified that it looked and smelled “good.” Really good.

Embra wants voters to know she is serious about helping Hearne residents and wants to extend her assistance as a member of the Hearne City Council. She is a life-long resident of Hearne, married to Deacon Donald Embra, mother of Rev. Kenneth Stewart, and the grandmother of six, great-grandmother of two. That probably explains in part why she’s handy in the kitchen—especially while helping kiddos do the cooking.
