Spring arrives and Easter is just around the corner

Waco News

WACO — Hi! Welcome spring!

It is spring, isn’t it?

What a year we have had weather wise -- and Easter is next weekend! We may need a winter coat to cover up our pretty Easter frock.

Speaking of Easter, some pre-Easter community events include:

• Wednesday service, March 27, 7 p.m., College Hill Methodist Church, and also Thursday, March 28, 7 p.m.;

• Flatwoods Christian Church, Good Friday service, Friday, March 29, 7 p.m., with  Robert Stroup of Bybee Methodist speaking;

• Saturday, March 30, Flatwoods Christian Church, free  community breakfast, 7 to 10 a.m., in the fellowship hall.  Everyone is welcome. On Easter Sunday, the youth and choir will present an Easter program written by Walt Compton, beginning at 10:45 a.m.;

• Waco Church of the Nazarene will be hosting a Good Friday service for the Churches of the Nazarene of Richmond and Irvine. Nick Lemond will be the speaker.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Waco Community Easter Sunrise Service will be Sunday, March 31, at 7 a.m. at Water Plant Road (off Bend Road) at College Hill. College Hill United Methodist Church sponsors the event which is open to everyone. This year, Tim Jones will be the speaker.

Flatwoods Cemetery Association will have its annual spring cleanup this Saturday, March 23, weather permitting.  If you would like to help, just show up around 9 a.m. or so. We’re sure your help will be appreciated.

 Get-well wishes are extended to Juanita Smith, who was hospitalized recently. By the time you read this, we know she’ll be up and around and doing great.

Birthdays this week include: Kayla Dargavell, March 20; Tim Jones, March 22; Garrett Holloway, March 25; and Tina Fox, March 29.

Schoolmates and good friends Sue Dickerson, Linda Isaacs, Judy Mabes and yours truly met for lunch last Saturday at Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q in Richmond. There was a lot to catch up on since we had not been together in quite a while. Food and catch-up gossip was followed by more food and gossip as the minutes ticked away. We plan to make this a monthly endeavor.

The Waco Fan Club met March 8 at Main Street Cafe in Berea to have lunch and also catch up on goings-on with the group. One particular person met by herself the next week (March 15) ate a free hot dog and caught up on absolutely nothing. (I need to check my calendar more often, don’t I?)

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one! (Aren’t you glad this season of basketball for UK fans is over!)

  • Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene

    Summer vacation season is in full swing, and I had the pleasure of spending the last week and a half filling in at the Farm Store while the store manager, Bethany Pratt, got a welcome respite soaking up the beauty of Ireland.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello everyone.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
