Fire alarm Visiting in Vashti By Frieda Duke and Debbie Specht Correspondents Hello friends! It's hard to believe the weather this week. 10 days ago it was snowing. This week we've had horrendous winds that brought in a dust storm, which thankfully stopped in Wichita Falls, tempera- tures in the upper 70s, and now we have rain. We've had almost an inch of it today, with more forecast for tomorrow. Now if we can just get some more warm temperatures to get the grass growing, maybe we won't have to buy any more hay this year. Oscar Duke got to experience the dust storm Thursday. He has been moved to Wichita Valley Rehab Hospital and was doing well when I dential election is over, so ends the air pollution." Frieda gave me a large collection of her early columns starting back from Feb. 28, 1985. I hope to put together a little section in this col- umn called "Vashti Re-Visited." But when I was looking through this treasure trove, the first words I read were, "He loves Vashti and his roots are still here .... This is what was told this writer concerning Dr. Joe Specht who now lives in Milledgeville, Georgia." Frieda goes on to say that Joe had suffered a heart attack and was facing open- heart surgery in March 1985, and could use our prayers. Happily, Joe recovered from his heart problems, but in 1991 was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. Monday, Bruce and I helped Joe move into an saw him Saturday. He is learning assisted living fa.cility at Lakeridge rings twice use awalker and keep all the Place in Wichita Falls. Although it is weight off his foot, but there is no no longer possible to keep him here word yet on when he will be dis- with us in the community he loves Henrietta Volunteer Fire Dept. answered two alarms in mid-Feb- ruary and has had 10 calls so far in 2004. Feb. 13 a grass fire was reported on FM 1197 North. One acre burned. Feb. 15 a fire was reported in the garage at 315 N. Archer. It was out charged. Since I was going to stop by and visit Frieda on my way home, I asked Oscar if he had any messages for her. He said to tell her he was getting better and that she should too, so maybe they could meet in the middle on their way home. Frieda is doing well still at Henri- so much, Frieda's words still ring true. "He loves Vashti and his roots are still here." And he can still use our prayers.

Read about it in the Leader Jeanie Maher last Wednesday and from the Spechts a few times this week. She also was very glad to see Susan Price when she stopped by Saturday. I got the impression that Frieda is getting tired of the political season. She spends a lot of her time watching the TV or listening to the radio. She said, "When the Presi- 6 pounds, 10 ounces and is the brother of Karissa and Kameryn, and the grandchild of Kenneth and Sandra Liggett of Vashti, and Mike and Mary Slayton of Bellevue.
