Christmas is less than two weeks away

BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin.

How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one. I also hope you are staying warm and safe.

We are having some pretty cold weather, and the ice on Sunday and light snow on Monday really made it seem like Christmas.

Christmas is less than two weeks away. Do you have your shopping completed? I am no where near finished.

I’ve been baking and making candy for the Christmas season, and my sisters and I have been busy taking and filling orders for candy, breads, rolls and jam cakes.

Whatever you are doing for Christmas and where ever you are spending it, I hope that you are truly blessed this Christmas season.

Please don’t forget the real meaning of CHRISTmas. It is the birthday of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus is the reason for the season.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to: Ida Helen Burrus, Kyran Hall and Todd Reynolds, Sunday; D.J. Wade and Janie Lee West, Monday; Lilly Barber, Wednesday; Jennifer Goins, Thursday; and JoAnn Howard, Saturday. I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Billy and Debbie Foster, Friday. I hope you have a very happy anniversary and many more to come.

I have been receiving some Christmas cards and I love getting them, if I get 200 cards this year that wouldn’t be too many for me. I love getting Christmas cards and reading every one of them, but I love sending them and giving them also. I might even let you know after Christmas how many I get.

I would like to invite you to attend Bethel Christian Church here in the Baldwin community. Sunday school starts at 10 a.m. and morning worship starts at 11 a.m. Michael Damron, minister of the church, along with the congregation would love to have you worship with them.

Let me know if you hear any news. Be sure to give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at pljones61@netzero.com.

  • 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.
