As a person not born nor raised in McGehee, I feel the need to let every person who was, know how happy I am that we chose McGehee as our last and final hometown.  The people are without exception the best you will ever find. (Oh, I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to every kind and patient person who has sat me down through the years to explain to me whom is related to whom.)

 Not enough shopping some say, that’s quite ok, because we manage to get everything we need.  Pride in our town?  You see it in abundance every time there is an event or occasion where it can be expressed, but most recently, it can be seen in the fans far and wide of the senior high football team.  Everyone has been proud of every Owl that walked onto the football field, but this year, our undermanned,  undersized, underestimated squad is playing with more heart, more determination, and more as a team than anyone ever expected.  Win or lose from here on out these young men will never forget their football season of 2011.  Thank you coaches, thank you team for such a memorable football year.  Owl Pride or as some say Maggie Pride is alive and well and ALWAYS will be.  For reasons too numerous to list, someone who is proud to say, I’m from McGehee…
