Food drive with Friday’s Josh Logan concert

KIRKSVILLE — Hello everyone.

The weather has been so nice. I know colder weather is coming, but it seems to be a time that people are out walking.

The other day I saw something so strange yet so cute. Phyllis and Jordan were walking their little dogs on their leash and following behind was the kitty cat.

It was so funny to see the little dogs pulling their masters around, and then there was the kitty tagging along. I also saw a cat in the subdivision sitting in the grass next to the lake just watching the ducks as they walked by. The cat never moved, it just watched the ducks. What is up with the cats?

This beautiful fall weather has been taking us on a few short Kentucky day trips. We have such a beautiful state. You just have to take time to appreciate it.

Don’t forget the Josh Logan concert and dance Friday night. It is a family event. Admission is $5, and children age 12 and under are free. It all begins at 7 p.m.

Don’t forget the Community Center is incorporating a food drive with the Josh Logan concerts for the next three months, so bring a non-perishable food item for the Full Gospel Tabernacle’s local food bank.

Friday night will be a night of fun as well as an opportunity to help others.

The Christmas gathering at the Center is coming up Nov. 2. Go on Facebook and get registered for the event. This is a great shopping day in Kirksville.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Hello everyone.
    I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”

    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.
