• butterflies

• sunsets

• sound of band practices and football games

• hummingbirds

• J.P., our mail carrier

• Mr. Green, who picks up trash

• Beth Smith, our JP

• Mark Jones, our county commissioner

• Tiffany Curnutt, our mayor

• Les Dullnig, Brian Wilson, Lee Taylor, Roland Garza, and T.J. Callis, our City Council Members

• Ellis Craig, city secretary
