Have you met Rita Myers yet? Well, if you attend any of our churches in the area you probably will soon. I met her a year ago this month at a lunch held for the Malvern High School football team at a church I was attending. As we were putting the lunch together we became fast friends.
â€śIs he going to do it?â€ť I prayed.
â€śHeâ€™s at the 30, the 20, the 10, touchdown Bismarck!â€ť screamed the announcer.
Roaring from the Lion fans, stomping in the stands and the band coming to life set the whole stadium on fire.
Nate Asher, Shelby Orr and the Bismarck football team had made the play of the night and the first home game touchdown was in the books.
Thank you, Bismarck for giving me and my best friend another great moment in your community.
We were jumping up and down, grinning like kids and celebrating with our adopted town.

Want to burn brush or trash? Need to burn brush or trash? Not a good idea until the county judge says itâ€™s okay.
A burn ban continues in Hot Spring County and several surrounding counties. Surrounding counties still under a ban are Dallas, Clark, Garland and Saline.
"Although we've had some local showers in a few areas in the last 10 days, it hasn't been enough," said Hot Spring County Judge Bill Scrimshire.
Scrimshire said he was still keeping the burn ban in affect until the county received significant rainfall in all areas.
