‘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.

    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.

    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.
