Vintage Park resident makes own greeting cards
February 12, 2004
In 95 years, Erna Holmes is pretty sure she’s never had to spend any money on any sort of greeting card. “I have never yet bought a Christmas card or a birthday card, I don’t think,” she said. That’s because the 95-year-old Vintage Park resident makes her own greeting cards, everything from birthday cards to sympathy cards. “People tell me I could go down to the dollar store and get one for 50 cents,” she said sorting through a pile of cards on a TV tray in her room. “But these are a lot more fun than anything you buy.”

BHS beat host Prairie View 53-18 and Osawatomie 53-17 to improve its overall record to 13-5 and, more importantly, its league record to 7-0. The Bulldogs shared the league title with Paola last year, but a victory over the Panthers and the Cardinals would wrap up the first out-right title for BHS since 1976.
