Hello everyone. The fish fry is back.
Susie at the Roundhill Store called to tell me she is going to have a fish fry Friday night from 4 to 8 p.m.
I know many have missed the fish fry. The winter months lessened the availability for many to get out in the cold. So, spring is here and the fish fries are here, as well.
So, come by and let Susie know how much you appreciate all the effort she puts into the fish fries.
Along with the fish, she will be serving baked beans, hush puppies, home-fried potatoes and cole slaw. Don’t forget the dessert.
Kirksville Baptist Church will be presenting “The Living Lord’s Supper” on Saturday, April 27, at 7 p.m.
They have been working diligently on this presentation. They are having many rehearsal nights.
It is on a Saturday night, so everyone should be able to attend a great program. You know celebrating Easter should be an everyday worship.
Kirksville Baptist Church is busy in preparation of helping others. They will be including their members in the disaster relief recert and certification training at the Tates Creek Baptist Association office on April 13 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
If you were certified more than three years ago, you will need to be recertified. The cost will be $40.
Don’t forget the Car Show at the Kirksville Community Center on April 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be a show, shine and swap meet.
Plaques will be awarded for the best of the show in each category. Trophies will be awarded at 3 p.m. Registration fee for all entries is $20.
The Easter egg hunt at the Carpenters will be this Sunday after the morning church service. That chance of rain better be a small chance. This is the third try. We are going to succeed this time.
Last Sunday was just too muddy. I would think the parents would have killed me if their child was covered in mud.
I do remember as a child, along with my cousin, Carol, and two other friends, we had a mud fight. It was not a pretty sight, but it was a lot of fun.
However, we were not in our Sunday best.
Hello everyone. The fish fry is back.

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.

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.
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.
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.

Thank the Lord for the rain
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.
