Paint Lick sportsmen to meet tonight

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — It’s a bright and beautiful Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick and workers are, once again, everywhere.

Thank you, Jesus, for everything in sending “life” to our village.

The Paint Lick Sportsman’s Club will meet this evening inside Paint Lick Christian Church.

I do apologize for not listing this event earlier – time seems to slip away more and more often.

A potluck lunch is planned this coming Sunday at Paint Lick Christian.

Everyone is invited for Sunday services at 9:45 a.m. Even if you cannot come for Sunday School, please feel free to bring a dish and join us in sharing the Lord’s meal.

Paint Lick Post Office is asking every member of this community to be involved in the meeting taking place next Tuesday, Oct. 23, at noon.

“It will make a difference”  if you show your support by keeping a post office in this village.

Most smaller places are closing down and just this morning, I read where our stamps “will be up a penny” to 46 cents.

I like Paint Lick and I intend to be at the meeting. It will be conducted inside Paint Lick Community Arts Center.

Many thanks to Hal and Yvonne Davis for all their support in helping our village “come out on top.” Mark this date on your calendar, folks ... Tuesday, Oct.23, noon.

The big news for fall is ... get ready ... the Hauntless Halloween Hike on Halcomb’s Knob at Messenger Farm next Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Since Mother Nature does not get into the scary stuff at Halloween, this hike promises to be the best ever.

Mother Nature will start off the evening by telling all her people “why the animals can talk with each other” on this very night and she will be taking away some of the really scary myths associated with Halloween.

You will get to meet some really neat  rascals – how about a skunk, a raccoon, muskrat, coyote, an owl, a bat  and, of course, the spider, as you are led around the edge of Halcomb’s Knob on some uneven ground, so it’s a good time to wear your hiking boots. I plan to try out my toughies!

A bonfire with fudge-striped smores is planned after your hike.

Admission is $1 for everyone who wishes to brave this candlelit evening on Halcomb’s Knob.

The location of this hike is 430 Old Wallacetown Road. For more information, please call Deborah Messenger at  925-9936.

She is the owner and operator of a certified Farmer’s Roadside Market where she has grass-fed beef at a reasonable price.

Spinach and kale greens,  green peppers and tomatoes are in abundance at her home located at 430 Old Wallacetown Road.

Everything sold at this market is organically grown. It is important for me to know  what I eat and where it comes from.

You also are welcome to visit Deborah at her Halcomb’s Knob Bed and Breakfast home.

Again, calls are always taken at 925-9936.

May God bless.

  • 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 everyone.
    I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”

    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.
