Wrap up and stay warm

Baldwin News

BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin. How is everyone’s week going?

I hope everyone is having a great one.

I hope you enjoyed the warm weather at the first of the week, because by the time you read this we are suppose to have cold temperatures again. But it is still January, even though it was 70 degrees on Tuesday.

Wrap up and stay warm and they said something about snow again.  

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to someone very special to me, my dog, Sally Sue Jones, will be turning 7 years old on Sunday.

I know you all may think I am crazy wishing my dog happy birthday, but she is a faithful friend and companion. Happy birthday girl!

Also celebrating are Krista R. Farthing of Poosey Ridge and Janet Sue Smith of Irvine, Sunday; Gabe Perkins and Nevada Combs, Tuesday; Regina Lovings, Friday; and a dear friend, P.J. Bishop, Saturday.

I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Mason and Joan Estes on Saturday.

I hope you have a very happy anniversary and many more happy years to come.

Well, I wonder if the groundhog will see his shadow on Saturday?

If he does, the old saying is we will have six more weeks of bad weather.

Does anybody think about this like I do?

In six weeks, winter is just about over.

Next Thursday, the Baldwin 4-H Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall of Bethel Christian Church. Hope to see you there.

Well, I don’t have a lot of news this week, so I am going to go for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail 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.
