The game pitted three eighth grade students against each other, Jack Walker, Faith Walker and Cam David. After multiple rounds of questions, the field was narrowed down to just Jack and Faith, and finally, with the final question, Faith won. She received the Big Brain trophy, while her competitors were presented with smaller awards for second and third place.

Olney Country Club opens new pool

The Olney Country Club debuted its brandnew swimming pool May 20, three years after the original 1966 pool was shut down for repairs. The 88,000-gallon pool had to be dug out and fully replaced at about $175,000, said Olney Recreation Association President Landon Rowe. “We had some wonderful people and businesses donate to the cause of getting a new pool in,” Rowe said. “Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to do what we’re doing out there. We want them to know that we appreciate them.” The pool is open to Olney Country Club members and their guests. The cost to join the country club is a $250 initiation fee plus tax and $64.95 per month for a social membership that includes access to the pool, tennis courts and 19th Hole bar and club. Full membership is $92 per month after taxes and includes access to the nine-hole Texas Golf Association-rated golf course and the other amenities.

New food option comes to Olney

On May 11, Olney received another choice to eat healthier. Taylored Meals had its grand opening in the building previously occupied by Nana’s Sweets, 111 West Main St. Taylored Meals owner-operator, Taylor Moore, says she wanted to bring a healthy meal option to Olney.

Woodson News: Happy Mother’s Day

My mom is special. She once walked away from a purchase of a stuffed animal kitty toy because the clerk was rude. She never made any “normal” meals; we had Chop Suey, Beef Stroganoff, lasagna, and spaghetti. (Some may think spaghetti is normal, but not my mom’s; hers was homemade and the best in the world.) Once, she almost stepped up on a horse, but at the last moment thought better of it and descended the stairs we had built. Once, when I was four, she made me get out of the car in the parking lot and direct her out of her space. Another time, she was Peppermint Patty in a play; I hung on her every word, during every performance. She would have gone to school and fought my battles, but she let me instead.
