Hi! How was your spring break?
The weather was perfect over the weekend, wasn’t it?
We did a weekend excursion to Gatlinburg with son Eric and his family (Deana, Jessica and Chandler) and ran into Wacoans as we were getting ready to leave!
Traffic coming home was a nightmare – traffic moving only about 20 mph if it moved at all from Pigeon Forge all the way (just about) to Jellico Mountain!
I suppose everyone was leaving to go home via N I-75 at the same time.
Now that spring break is over, it’s time to get those “kiddies” who are 3, 4 or 5 (after October 1) registered for preschool.
Madison County Schools, Richmond Head Start and Berea Head Start registration screening dates will be April 19, May 17 and May 24 (other dates to be determined).
To begin the application process, please call the Madison County Preschool Department at 625-6037.
Church directory photos for Flatwoods Christian Church will be taken on April 24 from 2 to 9 p.m.
Tell your friends and family portraits can be made for anyone in the community.
Flatwoods Cemetery Association, Inc. will meet April 21 at 2 p.m. at Flatwoods Christian Church (outside covered picnic area, weather permitting).
Happy birthday wishes go out to LaDonna Brittain, April 8; Sue Rice, today, April 11; and Debra Styer, April 22.
Happy anniversary greetings are extended to Tony and Tina Fox on April 16.
That's about it for this week. Stay weather alert today. Forecasters were predicting a stormy day.
Have a great week!

Eat local and eat with the seasons

These things cause me concern for the future
I was just thinking the other day about things that are happening in this country that do not bode well for the future.
Cruisin’ with the Oldies
With the sound of classic songs wafting through the air Saturday, hundreds of people took advantage of the summer-like temperatures and turned out for the Kirksville Community Center car show.
It’s egg party time
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.
Where’s the beef?
Today, the American consumer has more money to spend on the widest variety of foods than at any other time in our history.
Easter bunny's ‛eggbeater’ will fly eggs to Richmond
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.
