I would like to thank the skilled nursing unit at Gainesville Health Care Center for my care and therapy following a total hip replacement Nov. 13. The staff got me off to a great start with my new hip, and I appreciate their teamwork and also their willingness to let my husband, David, stay with...
I want to put in my two cents’ worth about the Christmas displays not being put out this year around the square in Gainesville. Christmas is not a happy time for everyone. A lot of families can’t be together. A lot of people don’t have much, material-wise or food-wise. Sometimes it takes very...

On behalf of the Ozark County Chamber of Commerce, I extend our apologies for not setting up Christmas decorations on the courthouse square this season.  With a complete change of board officers and delegation of duties, the decorations were – unfortunately – not properly time managed.  As your...
The Isabella VFW Post 5366 had a great turnout for our Thanksgiving Day dinner; 120 people were fed. A lot stayed afterward and visited and munched on desserts. Everyone thanked us, and several told me they would have spent the day alone and that they were so glad they came. We invite everyone to...
While we welcome the opening of the new James Bridge over the North Fork of the White River, we must take considerable exception to denying individuals the right of access to the river at that long-used site.  For as long as roads have been constructed and bridges built, the public has had and used...
The Isabella VFW Post 5366 will once again serve our annual Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day community dinners. The meals are free to the public. We hold each dinner starting at noon on the day of the holiday. Many people in our area wouldn’t have a holiday dinner or a place to go without these...
Ozark County Christians “Unite to Worship” (see “Area churches this week hosting ‘Unite to Worship’ revival series, Times, Oct. 25) is the sort of thing that is much easier to say than to pull off. I guess I may have gone to the countywide revival the first night partially because I knew it was the...
The Theodosia Area Volunteer Fire Department, on behalf of the citizens of Theodosia, would like to thank Rob Collins and Angie Collins of Chaney Monuments for themonument they created, free of charge, for the Savannah Leckie Memorial.  The monument is located at the Theodosia Area VFD main fire...
I’ve been following and just read of the openings of the CC and PP highway bridges. Having worked for a government agency in another state in engineering, I laughed when MoDOT said the bridges would be built and open in mid-October. I thought the permits wouldn’t even be obtained in twice that time...

Twenty-five years ago, I attended my first pie auction at Bakersfield High School. The boys basketball team needed new uniforms, and someone suggested to me that a pie auction would raise the $2,500 we needed to cover the cost. I thought that was crazy, but we had one, and we raised the $2,500 that...
