Local Alice resident Adelina Ramirez is celebrating her 101 birthday this week. Born in Hebbronville; Ramirez has lived in California and visited many places in her 101 years. She was asked her secret to living such a long life and replied “Candy and soda pop; but not soda like today the old fashioned kind and I always share.” She was joined today with family, friends and mariachi’s to celebrate her day. She was asked if she had any lasting words to tell the younger generations of today and said “I believe young people should learn to be obedient and try to do what’s right.”
