Hope you had a chance to vote

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — As I write this, it’s a really bright and beautiful Tuesday morning, Nov. 6, and it’s Election Day, folks.

I do hope everyone had a  chance to go out and vote this time. It is important!

I personally do not believe in the many changes that are running this country and making our valuable time here on Earth pass so much faster, but I will vote today and I am taking two others with me as I go to the polls.  

I had a wonderful Saturday past at the New Opportunity School for Women Graduation and Reunion at First Christian Church in Berea.

I am a proud graduate myself and I am always honored to receive an invitation to attend their events.

My niece, Sarah Poff, graciously accepted my invite to go along as my guest.

Thank you, Sarah. You are always my friend.

Mrs. Jane Stephenson, her son David, daughter Jennifer, and granddaughter Victoria were on hand to help each lady as they came through the door.

Mrs. Jane was signing her newest book about the women of Appalachia and it is amazing. If you are a woman ... period ... you will  want to read this book. I think it speaks to all of us in a big way.

Call the New Opportunity School at  859-985-7200 to order this new book by Jane.

This Saturday, Nov. 10, is the Wallaceton Baptist Church Annual Bazaar from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

They have numerous items available for your Christmas wish list. Breakfast and lunch will be available.

The ladies, and I’m sure some gentlemen have helped, are donating all proceeds from the bazaar to The Friends of Paint Lick.

Everything is appreciated here at FOPL. We are in a crucial time of year, when there are so many who are needy, less fortunate than myself.

It is a wonderful time of year to give what we don’t need to someone who does.  

The Christmas Bazaar will be conducted at Kirksville Community Center (old Kirksville School) also on Saturday with lots and lots of booths where the public can browse and find what they may want for their Christmas gifts.

Deborah Messenger from Halcomb’s Knob Farm here in Paint Lick will be on hand with her special items.

She will have both gluten-free/wheat-free products including: Crust-less coconut pie, chocolate PB brownies, chocolate chip cookies, imperial apple pie and chocolate angel cake, as well as products for the non-Celiac (wheat-based) including: Cream cheese pumpkin pie, caramel apple strudel pie, chocolate mallow drops, cranberry oatmeal cookies, and caramel-filled chocolate cookies.

Freshly-baked breads also will be available. As well as bagged packages of dehydrated sweet bell peppers, green beans, tart apples, hazel nuts and black walnuts.

Folks, that sounds really good.

For those unable to attend Saturday, Nov. 10, take heart, all is not lost.

This year, back by popular demand, Halcomb’s Knob will prepare freshly-baked products to order.

Specializing in over 20 years of gluten-free/wheat-free baking, the Knob’s hostess and resident chef is available to provide not only GF/WF desserts for your Thanksgiving and/or Christmas dinners, but also provide some of the best baked goodies.

Advance orders are required. Limited delivery is available, dependent upon schedule.

If you are interested in any of these products, call Deborah at 925-9936.

I believe she can set you right up with just about anything you may need or want in the way of food.

Suffice to say,  I know she is an amazing cook. I have yet to find items like these anywhere, especially handmade and smelling so good when it pops from the oven

Happy birthday to my brother Bobby Alexander and to Marianne Hurte on Friday.

A special wish to my daughter-in-law Hope Rollins, who will turn over a new year on Sunday, Nov.11. Hope is one sweet lady.

A great big wish for Jared Hawley of Paint Lick Christian Church on Nov. 13.

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and I am sending my blessings to your home for a blessed Thanksgiving holiday. My favorite time of year – turkey.

May God bless.

  • 04.18 Food .jpg It’s egg party time

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
