Rain finally comes to an end in Paint Lick

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — The rain has finally come to an end here in Paint Lick and the sun is beginning to shine once again.

This past weekend kept most of us inside just wanting to stay dry.

The Paint Lick Creek is slowly going down after so much rain. I think we got around three inches total and it feels good to be out, even if it is in the colder air.

We had a crispy 32 degrees  this Monday morning, so it’s winter all over. Our weather changes from week to week, so maybe if the colder air settles in, we’ll all be the better for it.

My sisters, Peggy and Linda, and I visited the family cemetery on Sunday, then had a bite to eat at sister Emma’s house.

It’s always so loving down there with her girls taking charge and letting Emma rest on Sundays.

It’s a special day for all of them as they help her prepare dinner and the sit around the big table and talk about their week.

Our mother passed away (on Jan.14) some 49 years ago and I know with age, that I miss her just being around.

The young ones in our family didn’t get to know my mother before her death, so I feel a blessing whenever I visit at Emma’s with her big family all around. Thank you, Sis.

Everyone is invited to “An Evening With Sam Gleaves,” beginning at 7 p.m., this Friday at the community arts center here in Paint Lick. A phone call ahead would ensure a seat and we are asked to “pitch in” with desserts.

Call the arts center at 925-2741 and talk with Hal Davis.  The evening will be filled with various music, including my favorite – the banjo.   

Happy belated birthday wishes to Mr. Tom Burnam of Walnut Meadow Road and a special fellow in the Paint Lick Christian Church.

Tom shares a birthday with Beverly Bentley, also of the church. Their special day was Jan. 14

Happy birthday to Christopher Bowles, son of Dora Bowles, of Paint Lick on Saturday, Jan.19.

May God bless.

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg Trace minerals for beef cattle

    Grazing livestock require many different nutrients to support growth, milk production and body-tissue maintenance.
    Often, minerals are separated into two categories. The minerals that are required in relatively large amounts are called major or macro minerals. These usually are listed on feed tags with a percentage sign after the name.
    Those needed in lesser amounts are called micro, minor or trace minerals  and are generally listed in parts per million (ppm).

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg A lot is going on with Extension this month

    The Meet Your Farmers Tour was a huge success.
    Despite the rainy weather, we had over 120 people visit farms and farmers markets around the county. I just want to thank the farms that opened their gates, as well as the producers at our farmers markets: Baldwin Farms, Turpin Cattle Farm, Berea Garden and Greenhouse, Hunt Acres, Meadowbrook Farm at EKU, Madison County Farmers Market, Berea Farmers Market and Downtown Richmond Farmers Market.

  • Fresh-grown herbs making their way to the shelves

    The July 4 holiday is fast approaching, and the Berea College Farm Store will have a limited schedule this week:
    It will be open for regular hours Wednesday and Thursday, 2 to 6:30 p.m., but closed Friday through Monday.
    We will re-open Tuesday on our normal schedule. To celebrate Independence Day and to make up for our shortened schedule, we will extend our 10-percent off sale for all Berea College raised beef and pork products (excluding ground beef) through the end of this week.

    Have you noticed a mass of small gray insects on your trees, all moving together as a group? Then you may have barklice!
    This has been the summer of barklice in Kentucky. I have received an unprecedented amount of phone calls about this insect. At the UK insect lab in Lexington, specimens, descriptio

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg Clean water is essential for livestock health

    Water is the most important nutrient for animals, and it is essential to ensure that animals have ample access to clean water.
    Having water available for livestock allows for optimal animal performance and health. Dry matter intake is directly related to water intake, and the less an animal drinks, the less feed it will consume.

  • Dr-Jack-Rutherford.jpg High-fat diets not risky for endurance athletes

    Athletes are always looking for a competitive edge in their diet but have to contend with potential negative health consequences, including increased fat storage and increased risk of coronary artery disease.
    Higher fat and carbohydrate diets in particular are front and center in the athletic marketplace, but one wonders whether these diets pose additional risk to endurance athletes.

  • Medical homes matter for kids

    “The lion ate him!” the two-year-old boy exclaimed to his father.
    The father smiled and said, “Yes, that’s what happened in the story we read last night.”
    Young children often say things that are out of context which leaves most adults befuddled as to what a child is talking about. The only adults that will understand are those who have spent time with the child and can fill in the context.
