Hello from Baldwin.
How is everyone’s week going?
I hope everyone is having a great one.
According to the calendar and the weatherman, spring started yesterday, but it doesn’t feel much like spring does it?
But with the buttercups blooming and the grass greening up, it looks a little like spring. I even saw somebody mowing their yard over the weekend.
It soon will be time to plow the gardens and get them planted. Can’t wait for the fresh vegetables, how about you?
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to a very dear lady who is a dear friend of mine, Diana Wells Ross, Monday; Rodney Dixon and Emily Jones, Tuesday; Amy Dixon, Thursday; Ronald Burrus, Elena Habets and Brian Thomas Hiten, Friday.
I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to my brother-in-law and sister, Henry and Nelda Smith, Friday. They will be celebrating their 38th anniversary. I hope you have a happy one and many more to come.
I had a wonderful time with friends of mine last Saturday at a birthday party in honor of Miss Riley Cate Reynolds.
Riley was celebrating her third birthday. She was surrounded by her family in the fellowship hall of Salem Christian Church on Saturday afternoon. What a great party it was.
Riley is the daughter of Todd and Crystal Reynolds of Poosey Ridge.
Thanks for including me in the festivities, I had a wonderful time.
Salem Christian Church will be having a pre-Easter revival, Thursday, March 28, and Friday, March 29, beginning at 7 o’clock each night.
Bro. Raymond Tincher will be the evangelist for the revival. The church invites you and welcomes you to worship with them.
Well, I guess that’s all for now. If you hear any news, be sure and let me know. Give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at email@example.com.

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.
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.
Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season
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.
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.
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.

Five children from the same family were the first to bring their 4-H exhibits Wednesday to the Madison County Fairgrounds.

I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”
Thank the Lord for the rain
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.
