For those in-and-around Searcy, there are three events going on later this week to which you might want to invite yourself.

THURSDAY 1/25/07 The Hall of Fame ceremony at Searcy High School Among those being installed are the Class of 54’s Calvin Skaggs, 56’s Elmer Dale Yancey, and 59’s Larry Crain.

SATURDAY 1/27/07 A Reception for Dr. Robert Miller at Ann’s Bridal Rose Room, from 1-4 p.m. Ann’s is on Beebe-Capps, about two blocks east of Main Street. Robert’s hanging up the dental tools after some 40 years of getting down in the mouth … several thousand mouths (including mine), in fact. Everyone who knows or knew him is invited.

SUNDAY 1/28/07 Here’s one you don’t see every day. Corinne Hart, mother of Anita Hart Fuller (and, thus, Grandma of news-hen Karen Fuller, ex-of Little Rock and now in Kansas City) is celebrating her 98th Birthday! There’ll be a special luncheon for those closest to her, and then an informal drop-in reception through the afternoon, say from about 2 or 2:30 on.

This is being held at Corinne’s home, #37 River Oaks Trace. According to Anita, “It’s easy to find. It’s right off Moore, the second condo, and it’s next to one with a white picket fence. Surely, there will be cars all around.” Mine will be one of them … and stop calling me Shirley (sorry, I couldn’t resist that).

Join the party. You don’t get to hit a 98th that often.

Corinne’s had an interesting life. Here’s a shot of her serving Eddie Rickenbacker, when she was running food service at Harding. Rickenbacker (for those of you with memories that don’t go back that far) was a race car driver, automobile manufacturer (first car with four-wheel brakes), WW I flying Ace, and founder of Eastern Air Lines, not necessarily in that order.

Sunday, come hear her stories in the First Person. She’s got 98 years worth of them.
