Carolyn Clemmons, her friend and son spent last weekend in Asheville, N.C., visiting her sister, Virginia.
While there, they visited other family members and some friends.
The following ones who are celebrating their birthdays this June are friends who play bingo at Harriman Community Center every second and fourth Mondays: Peggy Gunter, Ernell Renfro, Geraldine Harmon, Tom Collins and Mrs. Woods.
Happy birthday to all of you.
To my friend Lydia Yette McKeldin and nephew Dana Thompson, I hope your day was a great one. God bless.

A reception at Harriman’s Bank of Roane County honored three retiring board members. Frank L. Faris of Harriman had served on the board for 30 years. He was the retired owner and operator of Norris Creamery. Rhea R. Browder, president and secretary/treasurer of Harriman Oil Co., had served on the board for 12 years. And Jackson T. Rymer, appointed to the board in 1973, practiced public accounting for more than 35 years.
Tennesseans who have not taken the GED high school equivalency test or who have passed some but not all parts of the test have until the end of the year to earn their high school credential under the current test structure, according to Tennessee Labor and Workforce Development Acting Commissioner Burns Phillips.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, partial test scores will be invalid and will not transfer to the new high school equivalency test.
It is strawberry time. All the markets are displaying red, succulent, wonderfully scented strawberries. Most of us are making the most of this annual treat with everything from strawberry pies and flans to good, old-fashioned delectable strawberry shortcake.
Strawberries seem as American as Uncle Sam, and they have a long, completely American history.
