Greetings from Capps. I trust that everyone had a meaningful Thanksgiving without too many side affects. Ours was quiet with a few friends and way too much food but we survived nonetheless. The Capps Batavia Fire Department as well as several other departments participated in the Christmas parade last week. Capps Full Gospel Church won first place with their Glory of Angels float, kudos to them for helping put Capps on the map. Restoration Life Fellowship in Batavia is letting us use their facility for our fire department Christmas party this weekend, thanks to them for doing that again this year. On a personal note, I'm down to finals for my EMT training so say a prayer for me that I will do well. I've studied and done as well as I can so hopefully by the end of next week I'll be a full fledged EMT. Blessings, Doug more
Greetings from Capps. We trust that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. Ours was small and simple but we're grateful for the many blessings we have. It was also great to receive the much needed 1.5 inches of rain last weekend. My reporting about the stalled demolition work at Capps Full Gospel was premature as they had the entire building scraped and carted away by the end of the day on Saturday. Capps Batavia Fire Department had our monthly training meeting on Monday. We have several outstanding young firefighters who have joined the ranks over the last year or so and it looks like one of them is going to be our firefighter of the year, stand by for news. Recognizing people who go above and beyond is important to us and having several who are deserving is a good problem. I saw that Matt Odom, one of our Assistant Chiefs, has decided to run for a JP seat on the Quorum Court. We wish him luck in that venture. The annual Capps-Batavia Community Thanksgiving service was held at Restoration Life Fellowship on Tuesday evening. It was well attended by folks from several area churches with good music and preaching from Pastor Collie of Batavia Assembly. We concluded with communion and fellowship afterwards. As the Psalm says, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. I finished my days on the ambulance and now get to do some ER shifts at NARMC, then finals and licensing by early December. I'm part of a large class of about 18 EMT students. By the time you read my next article, we'll be in December, where has the year gone? I'm appreciative to the many readers who have followed the article over these last 4 plus years, hopefully we'll have many more good years of "News from Capps " Blessings, Doug more

Lots of activity going on, due to the Holiday being in the middle of this week. The Community Thanksgiving Service will be held tonight, Nov, 21, at Restoration Life Fellowship.

One year ago on Nov. 12, 2022, we got a dust of snow. This weather is something else, anymore of those 70 and 80 degree weather like last week was nice. I went to the doctor Nov. 8, and my arm isn’t up to where it should be and he wants to see me again the first of December. That little fall turned out to be big one. Today and yesterday I have felt better than I have in a long time. Yesterday I went to church and came home and clean my whatnot out of my flower bed until spring. more
Greetings from Capps. Stuart Nance, the realtor who has the 190 acres listed on Creel Road, dropped by last Thursday. It adjoins our property to the south for about 200 yards. If I had an extra 1.2 million laying around, I would like to have it for a hunting property, but alas. Capps Batavia Fire responded to one brush fire and one vehicle fire last week, different days but same address. We sometimes get more calls in the winter with dry grasses and leaves so please use caution when burning. The demolition work at Capps Full Gospel seems like it stalled last week, I'm anxious to see what the new building will look like. Jim Mysinger got back home from the hospital after a heart procedure. Glad he's feeling better, his wife Evelyn is one of my Cone relatives. It's funny that my stepmother and aunt were both named Evelyn as well. I'm in the home stretch now in EMT training. I finished 2 days on the ambulance and now get to do 2 shifts at the NARMC emergency room, then finals and such. It's been pretty intense. It looks like our nice fall weather is about to take a cold, wintery turn so stay warm and have a Happy Thanksgiving. Blessings, Doug more
