Danny Youmans and Renee (Clark) Youmans of Twin City welcomed a
sweet baby girl, Chanlee Elizabeth, at 6 lbs. and 12 oz. Helping to
welcome her home was her big brother, Clark Hall.
I wrote an article in last week’s paper about the ECI prom.
First of all, let me say, Ms. Tabor, Ms. Hooks, Mr. English, and
everyone that helped with the prom, I am sorry for the article. I
meant no harm. That was the “opinion of 4 people.” I graduated from
ECI along with several people of my family. I love that school and
I would do anything to help it. I spoke with several people–one
was Michelle Mercer–and she said everything was wonderful. All the
decorations were used again on Saturday night for the 8th grade
dance and everyone had a great time. No one got paid to do all the
decorations and all the work, so everyone, great job!
We want to say congratulations to Baylee Mosley and Gabi Wright
of Twin City for making the All-Star Team. Way to go, girls!
