In six months, we’ll be complaining about the heat

BALDWIN —

Hello from Baldwin.

How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one.

I hope that everyone is able to stay warm in the frigid temperatures that we are having. It has been a very long time since we have had these cold of temperatures for so many days straight.

I am looking for some warmer weather, which they are speaking of, but then they are saying rain and more snow. We will have to wait and see.

All the farmers in the community and surrounding communities continue to be busy feeding their livestock. It has to be so hard on the animals and the farmers in these temperatures. Before we know it, grass will be spouting up, trees budding and flowers blooming, then comes the heat and everyone will be saying, it is so hot. You wait and see, somebody will say it. It will probably be me.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to a young man in our church, Caleb Damron. He will be celebrating his 13th birthday on Saturday. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and many more happy ones to come.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to a dear friend over on Poosey Ridge, Krista R. Farthing; a dear friend in Irvine, Janet Smith; and a very special dog, my black lab, Sally Sue Jones, who will be turning 8 on Monday; Gabe Perkins and Nevada Combs, Wednesday; Adam Brown, Thursday; and Regina Lovings, Saturday. I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

The Baldwin 4-H Club will meet next Thursday night at the fellowship hall of Bethel Christian Church at 6:30 p.m. But please remember if there is no school that day because of bad weather, there will not be a meeting. I hope to see you there. If you have a child who is interested in 4-H, we invite you to bring them to the meeting and join us. Please bring some refreshments to share.

Well, I guess that’s all for now, so let me know if you hear any news, just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at pljones61@netzero.com.

  • Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene

    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.

  • 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.

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg 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.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg 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.

  • 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.

    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.
