There’s Mouse Roulette at the El Dorado Springs Eagles Lodge at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 13. $2 bets. Proceeds benefit the El Dorado Springs Picnic entertainment.

Would anyone mind if I mention the KC Chiefs? I thought it was a little scary at times, but I was pretty confident they would win. And now I’m glad I can have a little faith in my confidence level. We are so pleased to be able to carry the information about Tammy Williams of

We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Don Hillsman. Both his son, Brent, and wife, Elayne, worked here for many years. I know that Brent was working here (at 122 North Main) when we got our first computers. I know Elayne was there, too. She babysat Adrian for a bit while I
