Whereas we honor and respect our elders and citizens of any age with physical or intellectual disabilities who reside in skilled nursing care centers in Center, Texas; and,

Whereas skilled nursing care centers throughout our area are holding events in observance of National Nursing Home Week, May 13 to 19, 2018, using this year's theme of "Celebrating Life's Stories," and,

Whereas I urge all citizens to visit a loved one, family member or friend residing in any care setting and offer a kind word, a personal touch, and spend time participating in various activities to unite those from all walks of life in need of our continuing love and support; and,

Whereas my administration is committed to quality health care, we take this moment to embrace the essence of the theme "Celebrating Life's Stories." Let's join all residents, patients, caregivers, nurses, other staff, volunteers and visitors in celebrating their special week; and,

Therefore, do I, David Chadwick, as Mayor of Center, Texas declare the week of May 13 to 19, 2018, as National Nursing Home Week, a week to honor both our vulnerable citizens who receive care and the dedicated ones giving care.

In witness thereof, I have thereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the City of Center to be affixed this 14th day of May, 2018.

May 12, 2018 - The 2nd Saturday in May is when Mail Carriers try to Stamp Out Hunger by collecting non-perishable donations in a bag by your mailbox. Saturday, May 12th is the day this year and the National Assocation of Letter Carriers (NALC) asks everyone to "Help us, Help Someone." The bags will be picked up and delivered to the local food bank. This is the 26th Annual Letter Carriers' Food Drive.

May 11, 2018 - As we continue to recognize the 50-year anniversary closing of Daniels High, it is time to recognize some of the most fantastic teachers who had classes in the buildings. They, both living and those who have passed on, will always be remembered as ‘favorite’ teachers. Many students of Daniels High can remember certain teachers because they helped them along the way. There are a few students who will opt to forget some of them because they felt they did not put forth a great effort to cooperate with them, and perhaps received a bad grade. Oh well, so is life. Again, accept this invite to read about some of the teacher facts on the early days of the school through the 1960’s in Dr. Charles Tatum’s books, “SHELBY COUNTY: In the East Texas Hills’ published in 1984 and ‘Dew Drops on the Pine Needles’ Volume 1 Education in Shelby County”, published in 2007. There are still a few remaining and you can find them in the Public Libraries. These facts will keep the legacy of the Daniels School alive.

Names of 66 Shelby County Veterans who died in the European Theater or are still missing in action were read.
