Hi! Did you notice how today’s date reads in numbers?
10/11/12 – is this significant or what? Saturday’s forecast looks significant after the coolish temperatures. Upper 70s seem pretty significant for being outside!
From the desk of Tim Jones, pastor of Flatwoods Christian Church, we have these notes on their upcoming revival:
• On Sunday morning, Oct. 14 at the 10:45 service, Wayne Smith, former minister of Southland Christian Church for 40 years, will be our speaker.
• Sunday night at 6:45 p.m., Kenny Speakes, minister of Mt. Zion Church in Clark County, will sing and speak.
• Sunday night will be Youth Night.
• Monday night, John McCord, minister of Salem Christian Church, will be speaking and the Diggles Family from Lexington will provide the music.
• Johny Collins of Salem Christian Church will speak Tuesday night and the Brotherhood Quartet will bring the music.
• Wednesday, Terry Jones of Tiffin, Ohio, will preach and For His Praise will provide the music.
• Each service will be preceded by a mini-concert at 6:45 p.m. with the regular service beginning at 7 p.m. The exception to this is Monday night when the Diggles Family will sing at 6:30 p.m.
Congratulations to Allie Fox (big sister) and her parents, Beth (Richardson) and Wade, on the birth of their new baby girl, Alivia Klaire Fox.
Alivia arrived Tuesday, Sept. 18, weighing in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
Alivia’s maternal grandparents are Junior and Lois Richardson. Paternal grandparents are Marion and Anna Fox. Congratulations, everyone!
Chandler Trey Brandenburg enjoyed his 10th birthday celebration last Saturday, Oct. 6, with a family get-together at his home on Flint Road and a BFF sleepover that night.
Chandler received many nice gifts, his favorite food (pizza, of course,) cake and ice cream and a lot of the inedible green stuff – if you know what I mean!
Folks also enjoyed eating their favorite lunch at Waco BP on Saturday as well. I believe you could call it, “We wish you well in retirement, Geraldine Covey!” The cake wasn’t too bad either!
Thanks to the folks who volunteered at Flatwoods Cemetery on Saturday, despite the cool weather, and especially to the two gentlemen who built a wooden platform floor in the trash pit. It will be so much easier to get in there and take care of the trash without having to step in mud when it rains.
We’re glad Bill Palahunich is back home safe and sound after a trip with his Berlin Air Lift compadres to Salt Lake City, Utah, recently.
While in Salt Lake City, the entourage visited Mormon Tabernacle, was asked to stand up for recognition and then “experienced” the mesmerizing music and vocal renditions of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Absolutely, a great trip!
We’re also glad to hear George Kaylor is out and doing so well after a trip to the hospital last week.
A stint (or is it stent, or both?) in the hospital can do wonders, we hear! Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a full and complete recovery, friend.
Happy birthday wishes go out this week to: (belatedly) Brillian Cain, Oct. 1; Buzzy Campbell, Oct. 5; Scott Choate and Lori Moberly, Oct. 6; Joy Marcum, Oct. 9; Kylie Marcum, Oct. 10; Amanda Dunn Flynn, Oct. 15; and Matthew Marcum, Oct. 17.
Happy 3rd birthday to “great” nephew Jerrett Braxton on Oct. 13!
Deepest sympathies are extended to the family of Colby Tate, a former Waco student, whose funeral was conducted earlier this week.
In my mind, I can see Colby and where he sat when he was just 10 years old in fourth grade.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.
That’s about it for this week. Have a great one!
Thinking about you now, Doug and Lorena.

Disease, thieves were all part of life on the farm
Wm. Hensley and Nora Whitaker moved to Maple Grove Road when their daughter, Zona, was 5 years old. They raised hogs, turkeys, chickens and tobacco on their farm.
Zona grew up and married Wm. Mack Ross. And they were blessed with two daughters, Edith Mae and Etta Marie.
In 1918, a flu epidemic came across the land, and Mack took sick and died leaving, Zona with the two young girls to raise. They moved from Paige Hill to Maple Grove to live with Hensley and Nora, her parents.
Rain, hot weather will make lawns, gardens grow
Hello from Baldwin:

We finally got some hot and dry weather, then some storms and more rain. That will make the your yards and gardens grow.
Freedom Rally June 1 in front of the courthouse
Observance of Memorial Day began after the Civil War, but the poet Joyce Kilmer wrote these lines as he served in another great conflict, World War I. His words were more than poetic, they were just and honorable. Kilmer is best known for writing “I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.” He was killed in the Second Battle of the Marne.
Bookmobile coming to Union City this summer
Union City Day was Saturday. The threat of rain discouraged some yard sale participation but overall it was a good day. Fundraising activities by the club raised more than expenses, so that is good news.
My heart is crying for Oklahoma
Hello readers, what a wonderfully blessed day we are having here in Paint Lick, Ky.

Gone in the blink of an eye
One more day of school — yippee!! It sure has felt like summer the past few days, hasn't it? I hope our showers/ storms predicted for today aren’t in the severe category. The folks in Oklahoma have had a tough time of it lately (our prayers are certainly with them).
Can you believe this is Memorial Day weekend? Where did the month of May go -- it was here and gone in the blink of an eye it seems.

Try these ‘crocking good’ foods
Crock pots are amazing. A crock pot is worth purchasing if you are like myself always on the go.
You can make anything in it, from desserts to breakfast foods, not just stews and soups. The other side of using one is PATIENCE, and a time for preplanning. If you use your time wisely, your crock pot will make your meal planning easier.
