Hello from Baldwin.
How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one. By the time you read this, temperatures are suppose to be much cooler. So get your coats out, I think we are going to need them.
The Baldwin Community is conducted a roadside clean-up Saturday. If you can pick up, just call Ellen Harvey at 623-2479 and get some garbage bags. A dumpster will be provided and will be placed at Curt & Brenda Bogies’ farm, 315 Whitlock Road.
We ask that nothing be set outside the dumpster, and NO PAINT OR CHEMICAL CANS, NO TIRES, NO HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE are to be put in the dumpster.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Jessica Hiten, Just King and Melissa Barber, Sunday; Amanda Young, Monday; and Brittany Howard, Saturday. I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Billy Tudor will be set up at the Madison County Farmers Market in Lowe’s Parking Lot on Saturday. There may be other vendors, but I do know that Billy will be there.
If you don’t have a home church that you attend and you are looking for a church, I would like to invite you to attend Bethel Christian Church here in the Baldwin community. Sunday school starts at 10 a.m. and morning worship starts at 11a.m. Michael Damron, the minister, along with the congregation would love to have you worship with them.
Well, it’s short but sweet this week, but that’s all for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Be sure to give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at email@example.com.

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.
Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season
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.
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.
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.
4-H exhibits are family affair for the Houstons
Five children from the same family were the first to bring their 4-H exhibits Wednesday to the Madison County Fairgrounds.
Band students ‛take over’ MCHS campus

The popularity of energy drinks has soared since they entered the marketplace, but at least one consumer group wants the FDA to order warnings on product labels.

I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”
Thank the Lord for the rain
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.
