The family of Mr. Peter Johnson along with other relatives and friends wished him Happy 60th Birthday with a celebration on Saturday, May 10 held at the Cross Community Center.

The Rev. Wayne Shaw and the St. James Missionary Baptist Church came to help them celebrate.
Condolences to the families of Charlie Levine, Pearl Huger and Lynette Mitchell.
We continued to ask God to strengthen you during these hours of bereavement.
As they were all part of our community, our hearts also hurt along with you.
Sympathy is extended to the Watford family. Robert Lewis Watford (better known as Bubba) died last week after several weeks of hospitalization.
