Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up and thanks to Arlin Mayfield, manager at Discount Tire on North Navarro Street, for helping me get through a stressful, ‘tire-ing’ situation!

Thumbs-up and thank you for your wonderful refreshing story of Martha Sembera. Mrs. Sembera continues to live a very good life. May she celebrate her 101st birthday on Sept. 28 knowing she is loved and respected and may God continue to bless her.
