I hope you took time to remember our service personnel Monday, whether stationed stateside or deployed to another part of the world, our military personnel make sacrifices during their service. Some have made the ultimate sacrifice. In fact, since the country's found- ing, more than one million service members have lost their lives during a conflict. Let's continue to honor those fallen troops who died in ser- vice of the nation, and our fallen law enforcement who also died. "Watch Out for Prize Scams," by Kristin Keckeisen, AARP. There are plenty of reputable contests and sweepstakes out there (including some from AARP). But there are also a lot of bad play- ers looking to bilk you out of your money. How it Works: You're told you've won a prize but: You have to pay a fee to collect your winnings; You have to wire money to a well- known company to insure delivery of the prize; You have to deposit a check they have sent you; Your notice was mailed by bulk rate; or You have to attend a sales meeting to win. What You Should Know: You can't win a contest you didn't enter. Don't believe claims that you were automatically entered. What You Should Do: Be vigilant. The Fed- eral Trade Commission recommends looking up a contest or promoter in a search engine with the words "scam" or "complaint". Warn others. If you think you've been targeted by a prize scam, report it at and share on the Fraud Watch Network scam-tracking map. When it comes to fraud, vigilance is our number one weapon. You have the power to protect yourself and your loved ones from scares. Please share this alert with friends and family. Fraud Watch Network ES. Spotted a scare? Tell us about it.

When the drive-in shows the Cars movies, they always line up some of the Cars characters outside the Sandell. Thanks, John, for bringing the car by my house! The next day, was the Mulkey Block Party. Lightning McQueen was in the car show, and John also brought a school bus that is also a character from the new Cars movie. There were also other things that were fun at the block party. That includes the movies that were showing in the theatre, the games that some booths had, and also the inflatable slide that the Whistle-Stop brought. We also at a certain we showed a short documentary about the Mulkey - what it used to be and what is planned for it- by Nikki and Dusty Green, who are on the show "Two for the Road."

CLARA CARHART Clara Hannah Sully was born April 29, 1843, in Bytown near Ottawa, Canada, to English parents James and Laura Sully. Growing up she showed an interest in books and decided early on to be a teacher. She began to teach after grad uation and moved with her family to Davenport, Iowa, in 1861. She taught for six years and introduced musical instruction in every grade in every school of that city. She married Rev. Lewis H. Carhart in 1871, eventually followed him to Texas where her popularity helped him build large congregations in Dallas and Sherman. In 1878, when Rev. Carhart established his Christian Colony, he named it Clarendon in her honor and she is credited with ban the sale of alcohol in Donley County at that time. Mrs. Carhart returned to the east coast, divorced Lewis, and was a leader in the temperance movement at the turn of the century. She died in 1913. The Whistle-Stop and the community salute the memory of Clara Carhart and her influence in the settlement of the town that still bears her name - Clarendon. Thank you, Mrs. Carhart! l ID] i/I iil g~4v,vJ ii ~ ['r~l (t ] il I t:l= [':,] I P& ~111 ! I i [ ~1"~!:11[~ | ii i I I ii ...... ill: II Iiq"
