The weather will change in a few hours

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — It’s a rainy Tuesday morning, this day 5 of March, with our weather doing the flip-flops every day and, by this weekend, we’ll have temps in the mid 60’s ... or so they say. These days, it’ll change in a few  hours.

But, I am thankful for each passing day, no matter what comes, that the Lord passes on to us all.

We had a wonderful potluck lunch this past Sunday at Paint Lick Christian Church.

Many thanks to all who helped get everything together. It is always a special occasion whenever we plan a dinner at the church. It just means we like being there and enjoying the fellowship.

Our pastor, Ted Faulconer, is always a welcome sight when he joins us in Sunday School, but we sure did miss Barbara, his wife, in our class.

This Sunday also will be special with a one-time speaker, Yvonne Davis and her husband Hal, who will be leading the service. They are wonderful people.

Another hint in the cooking section ... to make your mashed potatoes really light and extra fluffy, try some warm, not boiling milk, adding just a bit at a time. It makes a great difference.

Whenever you have leftover mashed potatoes, you can shape the potatoes in a long roll onto some wax paper and freeze. When ready to use, slice the roll with a warm knife and fry them into potato patties. A slice of cheddar cheese also is good between the layers after placing the cooked patties on a plate.

I had the pleasure of talking with Rev. Jim Cox on Monday and I am tickled he is doing so well. He tells me he’s driving again. What an amazing man!   You just cannot keep the good ones down for very long.

Jim, I plan on keeping my word about the outing and we hope to see you soon at Paint Lick Christian Church.   

One final community art exhibit will be on display this Friday, March 8, at Paint Lick Community Arts Center.

An opening reception will be conducted from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. with an exhibit of the latest paintings and drawings by Hal Davis’ adult and youth students.

Refreshments will be available and live music by the “Flute Trio, Appalachian Aires”  will be provided.

This is the final exhibit at the center running through March 24 when the Davises plan to close the doors of the arts center. They are returning to their home in Indiana. They will be missed.

 Plan to attend this opening reception, beginning this Friday, as the center will be open only on Fridays and Saturdays for the exhibit show.

A Chair Bottom Workshop is scheduled for March 15 at the center with instructor Ruth Cross. From 1 to 4 p.m., you can learn to “cane a chair.” The fee is $25.  

Happy birthday wishes are in order for a special young lady. My granddaughter, Amanda B. Rollins, will be holding onto 16 years, this Saturday, March 9.

Happy birthday to Faith Ann Moore, March 10; my good friend, Janet Perry, March 12; and to a handsome young fellow, Jamie Vanoy, also on March 12.

It’s going to be a wonderful new year ahead for all of you and being one year older only  makes for more experience. Happy birthday!  

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.

  • 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 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.
