Madison Central Tournament of Bands is Saturday

Northside — Did you know our very own Madison Central Marching Band took top honors again and were named grand champions at Morehead University’s high school band competition this past Saturday?

Best of all, for the first time Central beat Lafayette, the school that has won more state band championships that any other Kentucky school.

Folks, we have a very good chance of winning top honors at the state competition this year.    Thanks to 117 marching band students, 27 color guard girls, four drum majors and a tremendously-talented director, H. Brent Barton, and his assistants.

This Saturday, MCHS will host its own Tounament of Bands from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Thanks, marching band students for putting forth the blood, sweat and tears that it sometimes takes to make a winner. We respect your efforts. Shine on!

There will be a four-family yard sale this Friday and Saturday at 3896 Boonesboro Road/Old Red House Road. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

Mount Pleasant Church will be having a Fish Fry and an old-fashioned hayride this Sunday evening. The meal will begin at 5 p.m., and the hayride will be at 6 p.m. at 1271 McCord Lane.  Those attending should bring a lawn chair, a covered dish to add to the meal and their own drinks.  

The congregation thanks Gary Sparks for supplying the fish all the way from the Florida coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Tates Creek Baptist Church will observe the Lord’s Supper this Sunday during the 11 a.m. worship hour.  The church is at 1255 Boonesboro Road, directly behind the White Hall Volunteer Fire Department. The public is graciously invited to attend.

A lovely 84-year-old lady, Christine Coats from Tates Creek, called me one evening this week. She said she was very happy to read our columns each week and had a few old sayings to share.

Christine said she remembered these prudent words coming from her grandmother: “He’s as slow as a slug in salt.” “He’s as smooth as spit on a door knob.” “Where you’re going, your feet will follow.” “Child, you leave the path you made behind you.” “If you have goodwill in your back pocket, you can do anything.”

Thanks very much, Christine. I am sure our readers can relate to these. I surely enjoyed making a new friend and plan on visiting you soon.

Keep those old sayings, old remedies and signs coming in. Our Richmond Register readers are delighted with them. I know all of you have a favorite old remedy or saying that you remember from yesteryear.

Friends, I would like to leave you with a few words from Benjamin Franklin. “Work as if you were to live a hundred years. Pray as if you were to die tomorrow!”

Contact me with your special days, church news and community events. My phone number is 527-0411 and my e-mail is karenquinn@roadrunner.com.

Until next week, may God bless you and yours.

  • 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.

    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.
