Don’t miss the Spring Gathering at the Kirksville Community Center

Friday night fish fry

RICHMOND — Hello everyone. It is time for another of Susie's famous fish fry's. Stop in at the Roundhill Store on Friday night from 4-8 p.m. to get some of her good fish and all the fixings. There will be plenty of seating and a lot of talking. If you have never been, the first time won't be your last time.

On Sunday, May 19th the Freemans will be at the morning service at The Full Gospel Tabernacle. It will be a great service and a great day. This will also be the church's Pastor appreciation day. So you know what that will mean, food and lots of it. Pastor Rickey Horn says that when you become a pastor that you somehow obtain a great enjoyment for fried chicken. The pot luck meal will be right after the morning service. Everyone is invited.

May 18th at the Kirksville Community Center will be the 3rd annual Spring Gathering. Doors will open from 9-2 p.m. The venders will already be there, set up and ready for you. Concessions will be available as well.

I remember when the old school was purchased and taken over by some great members of the community to become something of importance other than just an old school building. It has become a Community Center with multiple functions. Not only does it host wonderful events like the Spring Gathering for all to enjoy, but other great things as well. It also houses the clothing bank.

The clothing bank is operated by volunteers from the Kirksville Baptist Church. It will be open on May 25th. It is offsetting it's usual 3rd Saturday to make sure it does not interfere with the Spring Gathering.

The Community Center is the place for police training class. It is the perfect place for some special training exercises.

It is the home of Bill Adams' Tai chi classes as well as wonderful art work. We can not forget a place for weddings reception, reunions, parties and other gatherings. Let us not forget the Josh Logan concerts. Then our annual Thanksgiving celebration and the Kirksville Day festival and much more.

The outside has running tract and picnic area with bathrooms and lots of parking space. We sometimes forget all the work that goes into the Center and all the wonderful people who do what they do to keep the doors open. Thank you so much.

  • 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.

    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.
