DidYouKnow ColumnHeadWomen’s League had a special guest at the February lunch. Stephanie Manley returned to bring everyone up to date on her fascinating website called CopyKat.com.

Dedicated to recreating restaurant recipes at home, it allows users to replicate their favorite dishes from popular restaurant chains.

Stephanie also has a food blog and likes to provide helpful tips and tricks for achieving restaurant quality results. She has been doing this for many years and has followers using her site all over the world.

Items include appetizers and main courses to desserts and beverages. She said she started to cook when she was 4 years old. Her mother is Judy Chatham, who is a VP on the Board of the Women’s League and Judy may have something to do with this creative urge.

Next month the guest speaker will be Joseph Green, assistant superintendent of State Parks in Texas.

The annual Style Show will be on April 11, watch out for more details and tickets coming on sale.

•Coldspring Community Center will hold a garage sale fundraiser on Feb. 24 from 8 a.m.- 2 p.m. They need donations. If you have anything you would like to give for this sale (it’s a good time to clear out closets), you can drop them off at the center Monday through Friday till 4 p.m.

Call Connie at (817) 846-9460 or the Community Center at (936) 433-6783. If you need items picked up, call to make arrangements. The center has done a lot of work on the inside of the building but now needs to do some major work on the outside.

•The Reagan Dinner which was featured last week in this paper was a huge success. There were many individuals who were able to have their photos taken with the main speakers and I was told that they were very generous with their time making sure everyone who wanted a photo had one.

•Last week also had guest speaker Freddie Palmer at Coldspring Garden Club, who gave a great talk on growing Pecans. He has a Facebook page, ‘Palmer Pecans’ and lives in Coldspring. Call him at (936) 377-5477.

•SJC Senior Center has sold out of tickets for the Talent Show. To be held on Feb. 24, this promises to be a great night out. The Senior Center will celebrate Mardi Gras with gumbo for lunch this week and Valentine’s Day will also be special, more of that next week.

•Best wishes to DJ Ken Janik who is still recuperating after his fall.

•First State Bank in Shepherd will soon see a wedding for one of their staff. Kristen Minatrea has promised to send me photos. Kristen was on the Chamber Board for a while till her life became very busy.

Shepherd Police Chief Clint Headley gave me some details of a story which was mentioned in this paper, but I thought some of the details were worth writing about here. On Feb. 5, Polk County deputies tried to stop a suspicious vehicle but the driver sped off and fled toward San Jacinto County. They came into Shepherd and ended up in the parking lot of the Annex on Loop 424.

This of course is where Shepherd Municipal Court meets so it seems only fitting this is where the suspects ended up. Chief Headley said that he suspected the men involved were responsible for recent burglaries in our town.

Sheriff Lyons of Polk County and Lt. Finegan went with him to the storage impound lot where the vehicle was taken. It was filled with stolen tools. The chief knew of two residents who had tools stolen. The first one he accompanied was able to recover some of his items. The chief hopes the second one will also be able to find some of his tools.

Because of the successful outcome of this chase and capture and the cooperation between law enforcement departments, Shepherd Council will honor Sheriff Lyons, Corporal Thurston and all deputies involved during their March meeting.

Contact the Shepherd Chamber of Commerce at (210) 995-7420 or the Coldspring Chamber at (936) 653-2184.

Yvonne Cones is president of the Shepherd Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Coldspring Chamber of Commerce.
