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.

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.
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.
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.
4-H exhibits are family affair for the Houstons
Five children from the same family were the first to bring their 4-H exhibits Wednesday to the Madison County Fairgrounds.
Band students ‛take over’ MCHS campus
The Madison Central High School campus has been “taken over” for two weeks by 170 students attending band camp.

The popularity of energy drinks has soared since they entered the marketplace, but at least one consumer group wants the FDA to order warnings on product labels.

I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”
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.
