Central’s Marching Band is on the move

North Madison County —          You see them in the Thanksgiving and Christmas Parades; they entertain at high school basketball games, (even Eastern Kentucky University basketball games) and perform many superior concerts for the public!

    Who are they?  Certainly, they are the Madison Central Marching Band!  You can bet your last penny that they are alive and well.

  Every year just about this same time, massive numbers of Central’s Marching Band students endure sweltering temperatures, hazy humidity, and eat bagged lunches and pasta dinners, so they can make Richmond’s citizens proud, as well as developing creativity and artistry of music for themselves.

    So, here’s to you young, eager band students.  We are indeed proud of you, and would greatly miss your harmonious music which adds so much to our world.

    The Madison Hills Christian Church is in Vacation Bible School this week through July 25. Every child is welcome attend and learn precious Bible stories from the V.B.S. workers.

   The staff has promised there will be lots of crafts, outside activity and good food. The time is 6-8 p.m.

    Also, Madison Hills Christian Church teens are planning a lock-in August 9, 10 p.m.-6 a.m. Come out, teens and join in all the fun.

   The White Hall Holiness Church is planning a big day for this Saturday, July 28. There will be a carwash from 8 a.m.-? Also, there will be a fresh-fish fry beginning at 6 p.m. There are signs up along old Boonesboro Road, pointing to the direction of the church at 3561 Colonel Road.

   Our love and prayers go out to Mrs. Betty Wells as she recovers from a fall. She is in Cardinal Hill convalescing. Also, I would to mention Jannie Boddenhad a fall and isn’t feeling well.  

       These wonderful friends are both part of the Mount Pleasant Christian Church congregation. I wish you Godspeed, my friends.

        Birthday wishes go out to Madisyn B. Hurst, July 25, and to Amanda Gay on July 30. May both of you have a wonderful day with family and friends.

         The old sign, saying and home-made remedies of yesteryear read as follows: “The devil made me do it, but I did the doing.”

        Please contact me with any special days, events or church and community news. My phone number is 527-0411 and my e-mail is

         Let’s keep the old says, signs and remedies of yesteryear coming in, as our readers speak of enjoying them immensely; many tell me they collect these old sayings.

        Until next week, may God bless you and yours.

  • 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.
