The Birds of Winter Are Back

Seasons change and as they do, transitions identified with each season slowly begin taking place. As winter begins losing grip on our world, bits of pale green slowly emerge from tips of branches and tender shoots make their way through dead drab gray of grass on the lawn. The morning chill is replaced by subtle warmth.

The increasing temperatures and full-blown greenery of spring give way to summer with its shimmering heat making waves across the pasture. Air conditioners run full tilt making living conditions bearable.

Autumn follows as leaves on oaks and hickories begin taking on a tired, tinny look as they flutter to the ground. Mornings again take on a more comfortable feel; a light jacket feels right.

Community Reflections

Dear Hayden Boyett,

It’s the sum of all fears. The number you’ve dreaded for 39 years.

You watched first your sister, then your friends cross the veil from virile young womanhood to old-lady hell. So now that it’s your turn do not fret nor despair! Pull up that spandex! Throw some dye in your hair!

Embrace nomber 40 as a coming-of-age, a fantastic new chapter, so get set - turn the page!

By your loving sister - Kara “the poet don’tcha know it” Erickson

Mrs. Katherine Grantadams To Reign As Grand Marshal Of 2017 Christmas Parade

The Winnfield Kiwanis Christmas Parade will begin at 6:00 p.m. this Friday, December 1st. When the parade rolls, the Grand Marshal float will have a familiar, friendly face riding atop the float. In recognition of the 60 years that Grantadams Dairy Maid has been in business, Mrs. Katherine Grantadams will serve as the Grand Marshal. When I met with Mrs. Grantadams, in the back of the restaurant, she gave me an insight into the history of the popular drive-in.

Back in 1957, a young bread salesman with a young wife and two small daughters at home was looking for a change. Part of his regular bread delivery route brought him through Winnfield, where on occasion, he would stop at a drive-in and have a hamburger for lunch. The owners of that drive-in began talking to Mr. Russell Grantadams about opening a drive-in of his own, and his dream began developing.
