LOCKER By Lindy Another big rain, in fact it has been raining for two weeks at Locker. The one Friday night flooded fields, branches, creeks, bursting tanks and terraces, drowning chickens and turkeys, washing gardens, yards and fences down, watermelons away, the wind blowing corn flat, almost ruining oats, as they were ready to harvest. As shadows of the passing day slowly gathered over the mountain Thursday, the beautiful life of uncle Ebb Shaw passed away, and a soul that was so dear, drifted with the tide into that celestial city of God. Also, Mr. Joe Bolinger passed away last Monday morning in a hospital in Brownwood, casting away the shadows of toil and care with a loving touch and a sunny smile.
