Floridians come to check out ‘Friends’

PAINT LICK — It’s a beautiful, cool Monday morning starting off this very first day of July. It feels more like early September.

The gardens are growing, the farmers are all out mowing their fields and the Garrard County Road Dept. is on the move cleaning up our highways.

The Friends of Paint Lick had the pleasure of talking with an amazing trio from Florida last Wednesday. They were here for a visit to find out what we do at Friends. I do hope they will return and have more time for a long lunch. Rob and Barbara Romeig, we thank you.

The gathering of Backyard Ministries and all those who came to the Paint Lick Church of God … well it was an incredible Saturday evening. I could not have wanted to be anywhere else.

There were at least 50 children there to learn about Jesus and to have gobs and gobs of fun splashing around in the inflatable.

Many thanks to Hannah Walls for teaching the kids how to behave and still have fun and to Pastor Patrick Roberts and his beautiful wife, Ashley, for putting everything together. You all are a whiz with children

Ellen Hagan and I went to the Fifth Sunday Hymn Sing at Bethel Christian Church where Brother Dale Ballinger is pastor. The next Fifth Sunday Hymn Sing is in September at New Antioch Christian Church.

The Paint Lick Family Clinic will be closed through Sunday for the July 4 holiday, but “Doc” will return for his patients on Monday, July 8.

Happy belated, birthday to Ruth Lear Grow, July 2; to Ruth Golden, July 6; to Shawn Stratton, July 7; to Lola Harris, July 12; (both Ruth and Lola are from around Madison County) and last, but not least, a very happy birthday to my nephew, Mark Blundell, July 13.

I pray everyone will stay safe this July 4. Eat lots of healthy foods and vegetables and have a great time.

May God bless

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg 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.

    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.

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

    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.
