PAINT LICK —
Good Morning Readers:
It’s a warm and muggy, Tuesday this July 16, and I hear it’ll be this way for the remainder of the week.
I am trying out a different computer with many more items (or whatever you call those things) than I am used to having right at my fingertips, and until I get the hang of all these new programs, my patience will be at an all time high.
We volunteers here at Friends of Paint Lick are grateful for the recent donation from The New Opportunity School for Women in Berea and most appreciative for their help in finding Cathy Nell of ‘E Systems’ with her knowledge in obtaining a better system with our computer.
Cathy is a whiz! Thank You.
Doug and I were later than most in getting our garden in shape, but the weeds still know how to keep me busy.
I did get my tomatoes cleaned up, and now the rain has slowed, I hope I’ll be able to string some Missouri Wonder Beans. My sister Betty first introduced me to these great tasting flat pole beans, and I place them second only to my White half runners. They are absolutely my favorite.
I see the Wildcat Transmission Garage is already open this morning and that is good. There are a few people I know who are needing work on their auto air conditioning – not to mention a few other troubles with my vehicle.
It is good to know they are in Paint Lick and willing to work. Stop by and get to know Art Gibson and Shannon Smith at Wildcat Transmission
The Paint Lick Community Arts Center building is still on the housing market with Yvette of Realty Executives of the Bluegrass. You may call Yvette at 582-5977 for a tour of this beautifully renovated apartment complex. The place was completely redone.
The Paint Lick community is missing the happenings of Hal and Yvonne Davis who are, I know enjoying their home back in Indiana. Those two people brought life to this small town and we’ll always be thankful for all the good they accomplished.
The Paint Lick Book Club will meet again the first Tuesday night of August. If you are interested in joining us, it’s free and we would love to have you. Call us here at Friends, 925-2417.

Richmond’s Christmas parade is Friday night
Do you have most of your Christmas shopping done? If not, take a deep breath of air, make a hot cup of tea to clear your mind and schedule an upcoming day to finish your task.
Better safe than sorry with bad weather is forecast
How did you like the “snow day” on Tuesday?
Better safe than sorry, right?
According to the weather forecasters, more of the white stuff may be falling this weekend.
Ice forecast brings back memories of big storms
I am glad that this weather has been a hit or miss for us.
Al, Alice & Ruth holiday concert Friday

Cold-weather horse nutrition
Winter may not arrive officially until Dec. 21, but wintry weather is already here.
Consider these ideas for feeding your horses this winter.
The first thing every horse owner should do is assess your horses’ body condition scores, or the amount of fat they are carrying.
This is simple numeric system, ranging from 1 to 9 that will help you adjust your horses’ diets so they are carrying the perfect amount of body weight.
Choose the right Christmas tree
When choosing a Christmas tree, freshness is the key. To ensure that your tree has optimum freshness, it is best to cut it yourself.
Now, that is not to say that you need to cut one out of your or your neighbor’s yard, but there are several tree farms in central Kentucky.
If you decide not to cut your own tree, there are several tree lots to choose from in the area. Many of the trees found on tree lots will probably not have been cut locally, but instead shipped in from other states such as North Carolina or even Colorado. Ask the vendor where the trees are from.
Winter chill means it’s soup time in Kentucky
I love the winter months because I can try some new and different soups. I use the crock pot for most of all my soups. Here are some recipes you might like to try.
Boost your energy without caffeine
When your energy level starts nose-diving in mid-afternoon, do you reach for a cup of java or that canned energy drink for help?
If so, you’re like a growing number of American men and women. In one recent USDA report, women in their 30s consume about 165 milligrams of caffeine each day, but by age 50, the daily average climbs to 225 milligrams.
While the cup of daily coffee isn’t bad ― the antioxidants in java are good for you ― a half dozen cups a day can be. Not only that, it’s like putting a bandage on the problem. Instead, combat your fatigue with these energy boosters.
Dream becomes reality only when you persevere
A young boy grew up in Berea, in a family that was blessed with a variety of musical talents.
His mother was a member of a female group who performed onstage regularly at Renfro Valley, in Rockcastle County.
This young man would routinely attend shows to watch his mother, and other artists, perform on stage. He was eager to learn from them every chance he could. He knew from a young age he wanted to pursue a career in the music industry and was willing to seek advice and mentoring from those who were experienced in the industry.
’Tis the season for giving
There is a feeling of pride that wells up in all parents when they see their children giving something of theirs to another person. It is all the more poignant when children are giving something that they greatly value and reflects a significant sacrifice on their part.
Young children are often looking for ways to contribute and help others’ out. The trick for parents is to have children continue their giving behaviors as they get older.
