How sweet it is for the Madison Central Indians

Northside News

RICHMOND — Last week, the Madison Central Indians overcame one contender after another, until they became the state champs upon defeating Ballard on Saturday in the last game of the Sweet 16 basketball tournament.

I was particularly amused while watching Saturday’s game on television, when an excited announcer made reference to the Madison Central Band going crazy in the stands of Rupp Arena.

Vicariously, I could see my two grandsons proudly blasting on their trombones, along with the other excited band members doing their part to prod the Indians to victory.

Yes, victory is sweet, but there is something to be said for competing in the first place! Now, how does that phrase go: “A winner never quits and quitter never wins?”  

All hats off to the winning Indians for giving Madison Central High School their first-ever Sweet 16 title!

We Madison County citizens appreciate all of the team’s practicing and hard work and we are extremely proud of the Indians’ success. Go Central!

I am sure everyone is aware that Easter is only a few weeks away.  

This is an especially important time of celebration to me, knowing my Lord and Savior gave His life for the redemption of mankind.

Be sure and prepare yourself for worship as we come into this hallowed season.   

I would like to send out belated birthday wishes to Connie Hunt, March 1; Julia Hovey, March 10; and Justin Hunt, March 13.

May God bless and care for each one of you and give you many more happy birthdays.

A happy birthday wish goes out to Susan Kendrick on March 16.

Mr. and Mrs. Ellery Jacobs’ 50th wedding anniversary was acknowledged by their loving and appreciative five children at an exclusive restaurant in Louisville.

The Jacobs’ 50th wedding anniversary was on March 7, however, their celebration reception was on Saturday, March 9.

I would like to join the Jacobs’ children in wishing the happy couple many more years together. May God bless your loving devotion to each other.

Please remember there are many churches in the area gathering food for God’s Pantry and God’s Outreach programs.  

You may inquire at the Mount Pleasant Christian Church as to where to leave your love offering of food for the less fortunate.

Also, Tates Creek Baptist Church is participating, in coordination with the school’s resource centers, in filling needy students’ empty backpacks with food to be sent home over the weekend. This ensures students will have sufficient food on Saturdays and Sundays.

If you have a heart for wanting to help feed the less fortunate in Madison County, you may contact these churches for more information.

The old adage for the week is as follows: “The devil made me do it, but I did the doing.”

Contact me with any information on church or community news, special events, birthdays or anniversaries at 527-0411.

You may also e-mail me at karenquinn@roadrunner.com.

Until next week, may God bless you and yours.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
