Hee Haw production set for Sept.10

A cast of characters has committed to Director Carolyn Anders in an adult production of Hee Haw set for Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Pittsburg High School Auditorium. Mrs. Anders is well known for her senior class productions of the 1970s Hee Haw comedy hit, but this fall there will be an adult production to raise money for Christmas lights in downtown Pittsburg. Mrs. Anders didn’t have to be “coerced too much,” said Debbie Knox who asked her to head up the production. “Pittsburg has so much talent; and Carolyn and I both share a love of Christmas. e money raised will be used for Christmas lights in the downtown area but will only be a fraction of what we need to put Pittsburg on the map at Christmas. If Lindale and Marshall and some of the other towns around can dress their towns at Christmas, so can we,” Mrs. Knox said. “Carolyn has the knowhow to put on a show like this and we have the community talent. It’s going to be a good time.”

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor: I am submitting a letter today in response to the recent shootings in Dallas, and incidents involving recent police shootings. As many others, I am heartbroken over these tragic events. Growing up in the 60s and 70s, I saw many things associated with racism, bigotry, and discrimination that, as a kid, I could not comprehend. ings such as, blacks having to enter restaurants through back doors, while whites entered the same restaurants through the front, yet we shared the same venue. Separate restrooms for blacks and whites, and even separate recreational venues. In 1969, when our schools integrated, there was animosity, there was despair, and there were ghts, but not to the degree where people were carrying guns everywhere they went. It was not easy for students to get over losing Douglass, and the Panther team name, while keeping the Pirate team name. Many felt it to be unfair at the time, but we persevered.
