Mother Nature is doing it again

Waco News

WACO — Hi! Here we go again – just as the luscious warm, sunny days of late lull us into visions of spring-like summer days ahead, Mother Nature jerks us back into winter. Have you seen the forecast for later this week? Br-r-r-r.

Notes from Pastor Jones

From the desk of Tim Jones, pastor of Flatwoods Christian Church, we have these notes:

Thank you for your cooperation by signing up for photos to go into our next church directory. A few openings are left for Tuesday, April 30, at 9 p.m.

Special reminder: When you come in for portraits, there will be a donation container for God’s Outreach of Madison County. Giving a donation, even a small one, will qualify you for 5 percent off your portrait purchases. Everyone was signed up online, so that qualifies you for an additional 5 percent off.

Showing appreciation

Sunday , April 28, will be a special day to show appreciation to Tib Congleton. If you have a story to tell, we want you to participate.

The celebration will continue at noon with dinner in the fellowship hall. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Let’s go bowling

Sunday evening, 6 p.m., bring the whole family to Galaxy Bowling Center in Richmond for bowling.

National Day of Prayer

Coming soon is the annual National Day of Prayer service on May 2, 7 p.m., at Flatwoods Christian Church,

The senior choir from Waco Baptist Church will be singing. James Hardin, minister of Union City Baptist Church, will be the speaker.

‘30-Hour Famine’

Community Christian Church Youth Group is sponsoring “30-Hour Famine” to raise money for World Vision Organization, which feeds hungry children around the world. Their goal is to raise $7,000.

The kids fast for 30 hours, collect canned goods and work soup kitchens (while fasting) as well as sleep outside in cardboard boxes. This helps them “get a feel” for what these conditions are like.

The youth group has been able to feed many children the past five years and have even been among the top 10 youth groups participating.

If you would like to make a donation, contact Community Christian Church. The group would like to thank those who already have donated.

    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 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.
