‘Cleanup days’ are on the way

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — Hello readers. It is a bright and beautiful Tuesday morning this second week of April ... already!

And our weather is looking more like spring with all the buttercups blooming and that awful, crown vetch with the tiniest of white and purple blooms in some yards ... it even looks good to me. You know the springy stuff that everyone gets upset about.

But, that stuff is a sure sign everything is growing again and I can hardly wait to get started in the garden.

Then, about mid-summer, I’ll be fussing about so much to do! Life is wonderful, huh?

This past week has been one of mixed feelings. My sister’s family lost a loved one in her passage to the Lord.

Ganetta Isaacs Green will be sorely missed by many family members and friends. She will be laid to rest in the Flat Gap Cemetery on today, April 11.

This past Sunday was also another day in which I reflected on the many good days we had at Paint Lick Christian Church with Hal and Yvonne Davis as our Sunday School teacher and piano lady.

The Davises have returned to their home in Hanover, Ind., after a year in Paint Lick and I will really miss those two.

The former paint Lick Community Arts Center or the old First Southern Bank is for sale with lots of rooms which can be used for just about anything. It also has a huge iron safe in which to store valuables.   

Mrs. Thelma Starnes and her family met at the Dinner Bell of Berea this past Sunday for Thelma’s birthday celebration.

Attending were her daughters, Cheryl and Linda, Jayme and Hillary and little Henry Vanoy and Whitney Mason. I know they all had a great visit.

This Saturday, April 13, is one of celebration for Miss Melanie Wood of Berea as she turns another year in her life of birthdays. Happy birthday, Mel, we love you.

This next item is of great importance. The Pilot Knob Cemetery will be having “cleanup days” on April 18, 19 and 20. Thanks to the county workers, there will be a dumpster at the cemetery at the start on Thursday, April 18.

If you have a loved one or have volunteer time on your hands, it  surely would be appreciated to see a bunch of people come out and be a part of this huge cleanup.

Over the year, there are so many fallen branches, old flowers and decorations that the mowers cannot do the job of keeping this old place beautiful. You can start anytime in helping and maybe you’ll come across a friend. Please join us.

This Saturday, April 13, is the big auction at the home of the late A.O. and Mildred Calico in Paint Lick. It is located on the left about a mile from Paint Lick and begins at 10 am.

May God bless.

  • 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.

    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.

    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 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.
