Gumby

Hi! Isn’t this the sweetest face you’ve seen all day? My name is Gumby, and I’m just about a year old. The staff at Beaumont Animal Services thinks I might be a plot hound/cur mix. I can’t wait to find a family of my own to hang out with. Hopefully there will be plenty of toys, and LOTS of snuggles waiting on me there. I’m full grown and weigh 45 pounds. I get compliments on my fur all the time; people just love it. I know you will, too. Please come and meet me.

Audrey Fulton of Port Acres is overall Best of Show winner with her OPO squash.

Top gardeners from the Golden Triangle had a chance to show off their produce recently at Central Mall, and the overall winner was a young girl, Audrey Fulton of Port Acres. I checked with master gardeners and the Texas Agri-Life staff, and they don’t remember a youth ever winning Best of Show. Congratulations, Audrey!
