Happy Birthday Lufkin!
May I have your attention please. Someone was asleep at the switch yesterday, and because of this, you were not given the opportunity to "Party like it's 1985" (the "Prince" song?).
I and I alone, shall burden the entire blame for this miscarriage of journalism, and do hope my staggering incompetence can be excused.
It was brought to my attention, by no fewer than a half dozen or so folks, that the City of Lufkin turned just over "18 dogs years old" on September 12. Translation -- 130 years old!
Sure hope the cake was good. There was a mini gathering yesterday at City Hall where Dickie Dixon spoke about the founding of Lufkin. Snacks and refreshments were also served up. Bet they were tasty.
