Roller coaster weather in Waco

Waco News

WACO — Hi!

January has come to a close with gusty, spring-like weather and storms (Tuesday night into Wednesday) and Wednesday night into Thursday. Friday we should be facing winter-like weather with below freezing temperatures again (possibly) snow!

What one word could one use for this winter?

Hmm ... roller coaster?

That’s two, or a hyphenated one word, it has been an unusual, unpredictable one for sure!

There’s not much going on out this way except the virus/bug thing is still visiting families and lingering around for a few weeks it seems.

Stomach “bugs” seem to be on the wane. These ailments seem to get better, then come back with the same initial force.

Have you noticed that pattern around your place?  

Happy birthday wishes go out this week (today, actually,) to Kevin Dennis!

Reminders: Flatwoods Christian Church is still collecting cans for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity – just bring them to the picnic shelter and they’ll be picked up.  Also, there are DVD recordings of each Sunday (and special) service for anyone who wants one. Just cal the church.

Choubert and Bernadette Remy lead the church work and the Russell School at Gallette Goureau northeast of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The mission receives donations to the following funds:  General Operating Fund, Church Building Fund, Bible Institute Fund and Feed Program for Children.

If you would like to help, send donations to: Haiti Christian Mission, P.O.Box 127, Waco, KY 40385.

There’s still time to purchase a memorial brick for the Waco Elementary Walking Trail.

Just call Lorena Webb at the school and let your wishes be known.

We’re still trying to locate the missing bricks, already engraved. Have you seen them or know where they are?

If so, we’d love to hear from you – just let Lorena know (as above.)

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one.

I almost forgot – groundhog watching day is Saturday!

    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.

    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.
