October is Breast-Cancer Awareness Month

Northside News

The White House and Buckingham Palace had a complete pinkish tint to them this morning. If you ask “Why?” need I remind everyone of the token emblem, the pink ribbon, which is the universal icon for breast cancer.

Early stages of breast cancer cannot be seen, except in very late stages of rippling and discoloration of the skin. However, it can be felt with monthly self-examinations.   

Once menses has begun in a woman, every female should be taught to do a monthly self-examination of her breasts to help with early detection of this particular type of deadly cancer.

Below are some Internet sites which may be of help on this subject:

 I truly hope you find this information helpful.  Please, support research on this high-statistical killer of women and men by donating or buying from the many items you see in the stores this month and year-round.

The Tates Creek Baptist Church would like you to know that they are growing in leaps and bounds and are expanding and offering more individualized classes for children and adults. A new class will begin this Sunday, Oct. 7, for 20’s 30’s and early 40’s adults, who would like to be a more committed follower of Christ. Class time will be at 4:30 p.m. at the church off Hwy. 627, better known as the road leading to Fort Boonesborough. Childcare will be provided. For more information, call Marilyn Creighton at (859) 948-2357.

Tates Creek Baptist Church’s “New Life Singers” recently sang for the Tates Creek Baptist Association of Southern Baptist Annual Meeting. They will begin practicing for their Christmas Cantata this Sunday evening at 7 p.m. in their worship center, if you are interested in joining them.

Is everyone on the far Northern side of Madison County aware that the new Dollar General Store, on Hwy. 627, is open? Although they haven’t officially had their grand opening, it is operating, and I am told that they close at 10 p.m. It has been constructed on the same site where the old Marathon Gas Station used to be located. Kudos!

This is it! This is the weekend of Madison Central’s Tournament of Bands. This means all bands in our district will compete for trophies at our new stadium. Specifically, this implies that we will host the tournament and try and make a huge part of the money needed for the high school band’s budget.

As always, the Madison Central Marching Band has an exceptionally-talented program entitled “The Guardian” and has honored Richmond by bringing home top trophies in the only competitions they have attended thus far. Come out to hear all the musical compositions and their interpretation through marching and flag configurations. Treat yourself to a day of music appreciation and help out the band students, as well.

Birthday wishes go out to Buddy Hicks, Ronnie Richards and Terri Maggard. God bless each of you as you celebrate your special day with friends and family.

The old adage for the week is: “A wife who does not know how to keep house throws out more with a teaspoon than a man can shovel in a lifetime.”

Contact me with church or community news and events or special days in your life. Please, remember that I have changed telephone numbers. My new number is 661-6215. My e-mail is karenquinn@roadrunner.com.

Until next week, may God bless you and yours.

    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.
