Ice forecast brings back memories of big storms

KIRKSVILLE —

Hello everyone.

I am glad that this weather has been a hit or miss for us.

The roads were icy Sunday, but it could have been a lot worse. The electricity was off at my house for about two hours, but it was not off long enough to get cold. When I hear of ice, it brings the not-so-pleasant reminders of our big ice storm. I dread it each time.

It is time to talk about the snow policy for some of the churches. The Kirksville Baptist Church will always have Sunday morning service. GAs, RAs and Mission Friends and youth will not meet on Wednesday evenings when school has been canceled because of snow.

The Full Gospel Tabernacle will have announcements regarding the church services on TV. If you ever have a question about a church service, please call a member before you get out on the road.

Remember the Christmas play at The Full Gospel Tabernacle at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.. It will be a play that touches your heart, yet you will laugh so hard that you will be ready to fall in the floor. Russ Barnes is a hoot in the play. It is titled “What is Christmas.” Everyone is invited.

The Full Gospel Tabernacle Christmas dinner will be this Sunday following the morning service. It is a potluck meal.

Don’t forget to make your plans for the candlelight service on Christmas evening at 8 p.m. at the Kirksville Baptist Church. Come celebrate Christmas with the church.

Don’t forget the Josh Logan concert at the Kirksville Community Center 7 p.m. Friday night. Admission is $5. Don’t forget this is the last month for the Full Gospel Tabernacle food drive.

  • 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.

    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.
    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.
