Hello from Baldwin,
How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one.
We have been having some beautiful weather, not too hot, just like I like it, except for Tuesday. It got pretty warm and the humidity was way up.
But by the time you are reading this, it is suppose to be raining, which we need for the gardens.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Georgianna Agee and Joyce Collins, Sunday; Sonya Middleton, Tuesday; Portia Foster, Wednesday; Roger Rhodus, Thursday; Travis Jones and a dear, dear friend, Jeanie Rollins, Friday; and Curtis Kelley, Saturday.
I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Ernie and Bobbye Jo Taylor, and Mason and Jenny Griggs, Thursday; and Camiel and Amy Habets, Friday.
I hope everyone has a happy anniversary and many more happy ones to come.
If you don’t have a home church that you attend and you are looking for a church, I would like to invite you to attend Bethel Christian Church here in the Baldwin community.
Sunday school starts at 10 a.m. and worship starts at 11 a.m. Michael Damron, minister of the church, along with the congregation, would love to have you worship with them.
Don’t forget that the Madison County Farmers Market is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Lowe’s Parking Lot, 8 a.m. util noon.
Corn, beans, tomatoes, sour dough and salt rising breads, sweet breads, jams, jellies, honey, and lots of other produce are still available at the market. Beef and pork are also available.
We hope to see you there!
Thursday was our last day on the EKU Campus at the Park Drive location. We will take about two weeks off while the students come back, and then we will be in a different location on campus.
The Madison County Schools are starting back next Wednesday. So be watchful of the buses and children that will be out and about for the school year.
There will also be lots of parents taking their children to school, so more there will be more traffic around the schools. So, be careful, and I do hope that the children have a wonderful and safe school year.
Well, I guess that is all for now. Please let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail 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.
4-H exhibits are family affair for the Houstons
Five children from the same family were the first to bring their 4-H exhibits Wednesday to the Madison County Fairgrounds.
Band students ‛take over’ MCHS campus
The Madison Central High School campus has been “taken over” for two weeks by 170 students attending band camp.
Warning labels needed on energy drinks
The popularity of energy drinks has soared since they entered the marketplace, but at least one consumer group wants the FDA to order warnings on product labels.
Full Gospel ‛Back to School Bash’ is Aug. 2
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.
