Hello from Baldwin,
How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one. How about this cooler weather we have been having? Isn’t it great? I know it isn’t like our summer weather is supposed to be, but I do love it.
Happy birthday wishes go out this week to Jayden Brooke Burrus, Friday, and Blake Curtis, Saturday. I hope you both have happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Carroll Perkins, Janet Murphy, Mary Jane Ginter and a very special young lady who will be celebrating her fourth birthday, Miss Abigail Long, Tuesday, and Jo Marie Lane, Saturday. I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Gene and Wilma Hall, Monday; Bill and Lori Winter, Wednesday; and my brother and sister-in-law, Wesley and Debbie Jones, Saturday. Wes and Debbie will be celebrating their 40th anniversary. I hope you all have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.
Don’t forget to drop by the Madison County Farmers Market on EKU’s Campus on Park Drive from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. There will lots of locally grown farm fresh produce there. Hope to see you there!!
The Madison County Farmers Market is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Lowe’s parking lot, 8 a.m. till noon. On Saturday, there are going to be some extra activities going on. The Madison County Extension Office and Homemakers will be there cooking and other activities going on. Plus there will be locally grown farm fresh produce, bread jams, jellies and honey. Homegrown tomatoes are a hot commodity right now; you can even get canning tomatoes. You know you can get farm-raised beef at the market, now you can get pork. Just be sure and stop by, if you don’t stop by, no telling what you might miss.
I just wanted to thank everyone for all the birthday cards and phone calls I received on my birthday. I had a great birthday.
Well, I guess that’s all for now, let me know if you hear any news, just e-mail me at email@example.com or call at 623-4579.

When will the ordeal finally be over?
I was just thinking about the ordeal I’ve been going through since Sept. 19.
Life in Stringtown was full of hard work, simple pleasures
I had a chance to visit recently with an old friend, Alene Perkins Long.
Burning bridges and the importance of relationships
“Congratulations on your new job!” You tell a co-worker who announced she would be leaving in a couple of weeks. “Where are you going?” You ask her.
“I’ve landed a job that will put this place to shame! I am so excited about leaving here. This is going to be a great chance to advance my career,” the co-worker tells you.
Ensuring children develop a habit brushing their teeth
“Are you sure you brushed your teeth?” the father asked his son. His son solemnly nodded. His father said, “Let me smell your breath.” The son obligingly opened his mouth. Finally, the father said, “I need to check and see if your toothbrush is wet.”
This type of exchange happens in many households as children often do not brush their teeth, even when told to do so. This nightly inquisition can occur less frequently if parents establish a habit in their children to brush their teeth.
Saturated fat consumption leads to abdominal fat
New research from Uppsala University shows that eating more saturated fat in the diet causes an increase in the amount of fat stored in the abdominal area in comparison with extra consumption of polyunsaturated fat.
County’s oldest consignment sale begins today
The Little Ones’ Consignment Sale, Madison County’s oldest semi-annual sale of its kind, is open to the public 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (Friday) and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the multi-ministry center behind United Methodist Church, West Main Street, Richmond. Marked items are half price on Saturday.
There’s more to do at the Village Trough
“I wish there was more to do here.”
Do you ever find yourself saying this sentence as you sit there bored out of your mind? Have you heard others ask it?
Well, there is something more to do now that Village Trough in Berea is staging shows with local and regional talent and preparing to open as a full dining and entertainment venue.
Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky
It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.
Beat the winter blues with meatballs
When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.
Taste test Thursday
The sun is shining, but the chill has returned, so I hope you made the most of the warm, sunny weather this weekend.
The spring greens are being as tentative as the warm temperatures, but there is talk of lettuce being harvested and a continued trickle of kale, pea shoots, miner’s lettuce and spinach. To make room for the spring harvests, winter squash and sweet potatoes have been marked down to $1/pound and pumpkins are only 50 cents/pound.
