April showers, May flowers

Baldwin News

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

I hope everyone is having a great one.

I know the weather has been beautiful for the first part of the week, but cooler weather and storms are in the forecast, but it has been beautiful so far this week.

With all the rain we have been having, the grass is really growing.  I think some people are mowing once a week and some trice here in Baldwin.

The old saying is April showers bring May flowers. If the flowers get any prettier than they have been in April, it will be a glorious sight.

The last couple of weeks, I have been talking about the beautiful trees that are in bloom this spring and they are still blooming. The red buds, pink and white dogwoods, fruit trees, and some I don’t know what they are, but I do love seeing them. Only God can bring such beauty for us to see.

Been seeing gardens planted in the Baldwin area. I have even seen some things growing in my sisters’ gardens.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Donnie Kelley, Monday; John McCord and Earlene Thomas, Friday; and Kellie Rosanbalm, Saturday.

I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out to two dear friends over in the Newby area, David and Jamie Prewitt, Sunday. I hope you have a happy 41st anniversary and many more happy anniversaries to come.

There was a great turnout at the rabies clinic on Saturday. Eighty pets were vaccinated – 65 dogs and 15 cats received their rabies shots. The Baldwin Ruritan Club and Town and Country Vet Clinic sponsored this rabies clinic.

We would like to thank Gary Short for vaccinating the animals and for all his help. Also, thank you to everyone who helped fill out the information for the people about their dogs.

A special thanks to Curt and Brenda Bogie for the use of their shop to set up the clinic.

I hope I haven’t missed anybody, so thanks to all who helped.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Hobart Carnes. Hobart was my mother’s first cousin and was a very special person. He certainly will be missed by his family and many, many friends. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Helen and his family at this time and in the days to come.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
