Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers out there

Hello from Baldwin,

BALDWIN — How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one. Well, I hope you like rain, because it seems like we are getting plenty of it lately. I am ready for a little sunshine myself, how about you? But I must say the grass is certainly growing fast and all the flowers and trees are bursting with blooms, I guess because they are getting enough rain.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mothers out there. I hope you all have a wonderful day Sunday as your families celebrate with you.

On Saturday afternoon, Nelda Smith (Grannie), Aunt Myra Isbell and Aunt Paula went to see Alysann Smith and her boyfriend, Chris Couch off to the prom. We watched as Alysann got her hair done by her mother, Kellie Rosanbalm. I must say she was beautiful, not that she isn’t beautiful all the time, but this was something special. I hope that she and Chris had a wonderful time.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Michael Madden, Tuesday; Wesley Curtis, Wednesday; J.B. Dupuy, Friday; and Stellen Dupuy, Saturday.  I hope that everyone has very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to James Paul and Tiffany Smith, Monday; Curt and Brenda Bogie, Thursday; Glenn and Teresa Masters and Rob and Michelle Hayden, Friday; and William and Alice Whitaker, Saturday. I hope that you all have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.

Mark your calendars, my sisters, Myra Isbell and Nelda Smith and I will be setting our crafts up for sale at the Spring Craft Show at the Kirksville Community Center on Saturday May 18th from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. come on out and see us, there are going to be lots of vendors there.

Well, I guess that’s all for now, so let me know if you hear any news, just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail 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.
