As Prom season rolls around, a new tradition seems to have begun to take place around Cleburne County.

This week, Alexandria Southerland, West Side Junior, daughter of Cody and Rachel Southerland of Drasco, decided to ask  Asa Carr, son of Terry and Juanice Carr of Greers Ferry, to their Prom.

She wanted to do it in a special way. Surprising Carr at the local Sonic, she “tackled” the question, hoping he would be “hooked” by taking the “bait” and saying yes to her invitation to be her prom date. Just to make sure he would agree, she “lured” him with a tackle box filled with “bait” - his favorite candies. It was an offer he couldn’t refuse...he was caught “hook, line and sinker.” His answer was absolutely yes!
