Trees, falling leaves bring beauty to Baldwin

Baldwin News

BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin, How is everyone’s week going?

I hope everyone is having a great one.

It has been a raining and nesting week so far, but by the time you are reading this, it is suppose to be a much nicer day, but then much cooler, down right COLD!

The rain has knocked so many leaves to the ground, but the trees are beautiful right now. God has brought such beauty and such wonderful color to the leaves this fall. I love to see the leaves in all the colors of green, red, orange, yellow and brown. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Happy belated birthday wishes to the ones I missed last week, Gene Hall, Elizabeth Jones and Hayden Jackman, Tuesday; and Chad Horn, Wednesday. Also, happy birthday wishes tomorrow to Kelsey Portwood. I hope  you all have had or will have happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Matthew and Mark Brumbaugh, Monday; Corie Young, Tuesday; Danny Renfro, Thursday; and Kendal Davis and Justin Beck, Saturday. I hope you all have happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Ronald and Amy Burrus, Saturday. I hope you have a very happy anniversary and many more happy ones to come.

Baldwin 4-H Club meets tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the fellowship hall of Bethel Christian Church. We will be electing officers for the year 2012-2013 tonight and be working on a project. We hope to see you there. We always welcome new children to join the 4-H Club. Come on out and join us.

The Madison County Market is still open at Lowe’s parking lot, 8 a.m. until noon. Lots of fall items are in, especially for all your decorating needs. There are pumpkins, cushaws, gourds, fodder, door wreathes and much more. There still are fresh vegetables available at the market, also.

Otter Creek meat is there with fresh meat, no hormone or no steroids, see Keith Park, he will be able to help you. Beef by the pound, quarter, halves and whole beefs are available by order. Don’t forget the jams, jellies, honey, sourdough bread, and sweet breads. Be sure and stop by and see us this Saturday!

Well, I guess that’s all for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at

  • 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 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.
