Who's ready for Spring and spring-like weather? Me. February is speeding by too fast, but Spring won't officially be here until March 20.

Let's just hope warm weather and sunshine come with it (or even before.)

Monday, Feb. 14 is Valentine's Day. Everyone already knows that, but are you prepared? Guys, you only have a few day to get cards, flowers, candy, diamonds or whatever that special gift will be. Be prepared. You don't want to spend the night in the dog house. Most "dogs" don't sleep in the dog house, anyway. (Ours sleeps in the bed with us.)

The Forrest Rockets basketball team is ready for the District tournaments.

They will open up the first round Saturday, Feb. 12 at Huntland with F.C. Boyd. Tip-off is at 4 p.m. Congratulations to Coach Davy McClaran, who was named District 9-A Coach of the Year.

The Lady Rockets will compete with Community School (Unionville) in their first round in the District tournaments Friday, Feb. 11 at Huntland.

The Rocket Wrestlers will be at their region tournament Friday and Saturday, Feb. 11-12.

The Marshall County Community Theatre Children's Division will present their next event "All Shook Up", March 3 - 8. The plays performed at the Dixie Theatre are always wonderful, and this will be no exception. You'll hear lots of hit songs from "Elvis". We will see some Chapel Hill talent, too. Heather Blake, a Forrest High School senior, is a member of this cast. She is the daughter of Phillip and Sharon Blake of Chapel Hill. Another cast member, Erik Martin, is a sophmore at Marshall County High School. He is the son of Kyle and Deanna Martin of Lewisburg and the grandson of Ronnie and Diane Curtis, of Chapel Hill.

The performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night, except Sunday, when the show will start at 2 p.m. Tickets may be purchased from any cast member or from the Dixie Box Office beginning Feb. 25 between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. or one hour before each show.

Come on down to the Dixie on the square in Lewisburg, and let's get "All shook up."

Have a wonderful week, with or without snow, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY and GO ROCKETS.
