Church presentation was enjoyable

Kirksville News

KIRKSVILLE — Hello everyone. I hope everyone had the opportunity to see the Kirksville Baptist Church presentation of the living Lord’s Supper.

I was able to attend and it was great. You could tell they put a lot of time and effort in making this a great production.

I think Pastor Butch Pennington said it best, “He could have not been more proud of His church.”

The church was full. During the program, as the presenter spoke, you could hear a pin drop. Thanks Kirksville Baptist for having such an enjoyable program and thanks for reminding us of such a special event in Christ’s life.

Coming up in Kirksville on May 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. is the craft and vendor fair at the community center.

I spoke with Helen Estes and she said the gym is always full and running over into the hallways with booths. It is still not too late to make arrangements to set up your products, call 338-6690.

Mother’s Day is coming up soon and Full Gospel Tabernacle is having a Mother’s Day Brunch on May 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The church is hosting this brunch for all the mothers and their daughters.

Please feel free to invite your mothers, grandmothers or any special ladies in your life. Please let Ramie or one of the other church ladies know that you would like to attend by May 8.

We had a good friend, Bill Ingram’s dad, pass away. Bill’s dad was a great fellow.

I had the opportunity to experience his knowledge about tractors and farm equipment. We were able to always have great conversions about farming and his son.

He liked to talk about Bill being part of the Gospel Troops. Sorry for your loss.

I have been busy spraying apple trees and weeds. When you are spraying for bugs and weeds, you better make sure you have your containers marked clearly.

I went to a weed control class – oh, yes, there are weed classes – and it was suggested to spray early when the plants are young for a more effective weed control.

    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.

    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.
