Glasscock has persevered through a stroke, severe seizures, a major brain surgery, and lifelong limited use of the left side of his body.

    Skating rink items
    We postponed the rink on last Friday night to give the people a rest, and because there was a show in town…On next Friday night we will have a sack race. A prize of $5 will be given to the party making three rounds in 40 seconds, a prize of $2 for 45 seconds and prize of $1 for 60 seconds. In preparing the contestant for the race the end of the sack will be cut off to allow the feet to pass through, thus leaving the feet free to make short, quick strokes.
