Fiber optic coming soon to Nixburg
We are right at the end of another month. Time surely does fly, and the years pass quickly.
So sorry to learn that Mr. Ken Shaw of Rockford had passed away. He was a character, and always full of life and goodness, and always seemed so happy. He will be sadly missed. Sincere sympathies go out to his sweet wife, Sherry, and the entire family.
The good news is that the Equality UM Church will be offering COVID-19 vaccinations; thank goodness someone in Coosa will be taking up the slack. The state certainly needs some help. They had us on the list about 8 weeks and never called us back for an appointment time. We were thrilled to be able to get ours in Goodwater and will get our second shot this week. Luckily Betty Price and Sheila Denney of Hissop were also able to begin their two shots. With more than 10,000 deaths in this state alone I can’t imagine anyone saying they need more proof before getting the shots. Remember how it was in the 1970s – no shots for communicable diseases for the children and school admission was refused to them; you had no choice at all.
Madix is hiring, so give them a call or go by for an application – in Eclectic, 334-541-5000; or Goodwater, 256-839-6354.
My sister Sally had a birthday on March 29; I still remember the secretary at my high school letting me know I had a new sister over the loudspeaker in my classroom so the whole class was aware, and I couldn’t wait to get home and see her. Turns out, she was smart and such a well behaved and beautiful baby and child that I loved as mine.
My eldest granddaughter, Jaime Laurel Morgan, will have a birthday on April 3, and she’s reaching 24 this year. I just learned that she is now a registered nurse at East Alabama Medical, and her daddy is quite proud.
I am ready for these dangerous storms to be over and for us to really get into our springtime. So much damage and five fatalities. We are extremely lucky that there was no real damage, other than broken limbs, around here. We were prepared though – got white emergency candles, flashlights and made sure we had foods we could eat; luckily we can always cook something, being on propane gas for cooking. No power lost around our house in Nixburg.
Fiber optic is coming locally to rural areas like Nixburg. I’m not sure how the areas work, but I got a postcard to say that the grant for 6-3 that includes me will come soon (ready for use by first quarter 2022), and the internet will be $60 with unlimited Mbps, and you can add the phone for just $20, which is less than 50% of what AT&T charges, and the fiber deal includes long distance. All of this comes through Central Alabama Electric Co-Op. For more information, you can look them up at www.centralalaccess.com or call them at 1-888-706-4754.
Wishing you all a very happy Easter; now is the time to get busy on that Easter bonnet.
Kind or tender words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Until next week, keep smiling.
