VillageFest set Saturday in Paint Lick

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — Good morning readers. It’s time for the open house of the Paint Lick Community Arts Center (the old bank building) on Friday evening starting at 5:30. You will be amazed!

Then, it’s VillageFest.

Paint Lick’s 22nd-annual VillageFest is this Saturday here in the street and everyone is welcome to share in our big day as all the vendors from everywhere will set up their wares.

We have The Gospel Barn which will have its large yard sale including a complete roofing trailer with an elevator, compressor, torching gun and all extra equipment.

Walter Jones and Myrtle have a variety of good furniture also for a reasonable price. They will be out from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are on the hill just as you come into Paint Lick from the Madison county side.

Pat Baker and her crew will have handmade Bibles or “Personal Boxes.” I  love mine and it holds my daddy’s family Bible given to me at his passing.

Silas Keen will be there Saturday with this year’s “Homemade in Paint Lick Honey” gathered at the old Todd Farm.

The Paint Lick Christian Church ladies will be serving bowls of hot soup beans, fried cornbread and all the baked goodies you will need.

Rickie Collette, Dora Bowles, Linda Caldwell and Loraine Todd will conduct the “Friends Porch Sale” and I hope to be serving up some hot potato soup to benefit our Friends of Paint Lick. Coffee also will be available.

Loretta Adams and the other volunteers will be hosting their silent auction and we will have some raffle items on display.

Come early and set up your table or your tent. Even the tailgate on your truck will do to get the day going strong. I probably have not mentioned everyone who will be here, but just show up and enjoy the day. It will wind up at 3 p.m.

It was a pleasure to have friends of Paint Lick Christian Church with us on Sunday. Harry and Deborah Bolen are good friends with Pastor Ted and his wife Barbara.    

Paint Lick Church of God is having its “Fall Homecoming” starting this Thursday and Friday evening beginning at 7 p.m., with Rev. Teddy Couch and Rev. Ryan Osborne, respectively. Sunday morning services will host Rev. Andy Saylor (from our post office, remember?) with a lunch provided after the welcome by Pastors Patrick and Ashley Roberts. The church is on the Old Railroad and everyone is welcome. Call (859) 227-9935 for more information.

Susie and Doug Tussey of Round  Hill’s General Store will have a fish fry this Saturday from 4 to 8 p.m. It will be a good wrap up for the day to enjoy myself when the VillageFest is done. If you want some good tasting fish served with a warm smile, go on over to Round Hill. You will enjoy!

Happy birthday to Mrs. Bertha McQuerry this Friday. She will be 90 years young. My sister-in-law, Francine Alexander will be another year younger also on Friday. Another sister-in-law, Madrew K. Alexander will be celebrating her big day on Sunday, Oct. 7. I pray  you all will have a grand birthday and may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

  • Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene

    Summer vacation season is in full swing, and I had the pleasure of spending the last week and a half filling in at the Farm Store while the store manager, Bethany Pratt, got a welcome respite soaking up the beauty of Ireland.

  • 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.
