PAINT LICK —
Happy New Year!
It’s a beautiful Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick with an amazing sunshine that is going to warm everything all during this week.
Cooler temperatures with some rain showers are expected by the weekend, but it looks like we will get to enjoy a few warm days.
I intend to get out and clean up around our house where the wintry winds have blown in all kinds of stuff.
Paint Lick Community Arts Center is looking for those of you who would are interested in the “art of quilting.”
For eight Saturdays, the center will feature classes in which you can learn how to do something special for yourself and, in turn, can hand down the art through future generations.
This past weekend was wonderful at the center with numerous quilts and quilting patterns, adorning the walls.
Also , they are asking for anyone with an interest in working with clay.
If you are interested in such a venture, you can call Hal and Yvonne at the center, 925-2741. I know you will be pleased.
Paint Lick’s Three-Fold Meats will be receiving a fresh, not frozen, load of beef this weekend, so stop by and take a look or call them at 925-2172.
Our grocery is doing well, too, according to the stops made by local and out-of-town people.
I found the less time spent in town at the bigger stores is paying off. I actually have not done any shopping and I don’t spend a large amount whenever I do cash purchases.
I think I’m saving some by staying home more and eating from what we already have on hand. That’s good, huh?
The flu and symptoms of flu are raging all over, so try and use prevention.
Staying well involves keeping your hands clean and getting enough rest. Keeping the top of your head warm and dry is a great idea, also. Layered clothing on cold, wet days when going outdoors is good.
Happy birthday to nephew Terry Cheeks of the Smokehouse Grill on Jan. 12.
Paint Lick Post Office is changing its hours of opening business. It will be open each weekday and Saturdays from 9 to 11 a.m.
May God bless.

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.
Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Bluegrass hosts first-ever horse show
Many times, when people think of Big Brothers, Big Sisters, they think of the organization’s fundraiser Bowl for Kids’ Sake.
But this year, BBBS of the Bluegrass is trying something new.
“Based on the response that I’ve gotten from our community and surrounding communities, I’m expecting a big event,” said Rhonda Middleton, BBBS of the Bluegrass regional program manager.
My! How things have changed
I was just thinking the other day about how difficult it is for those of us who are beyond middle age. Things are just not like they were when we were young.
How many of you have noticed that stairs are getting steeper, groceries are getting heavier and everything is much farther away?
Develop your most employable skills: Integrity and respect
There are many defining moments in life. Some moments leave lingering smiles and a feeling of accomplishment, and others are among those you wish you could forget or completely erase from your life.
Each of these moments have molded and shaped who you have become today.
Peter Perlman — Life lessons from a lawyer’s lawyer
One of the great moments of my life was sitting next to legendary Louisville attorney Frank Haddad at a luncheon when he learned he had received the first Peter Perlman Outstanding Trial Lawyer award from the Kentucky Academy of Trial Lawyers.
As they started his bio, the surprised Frank started crying like a baby. A sudden heart attack took him less than a year later. Winning the Perlman award was the crowning achievement of his career.
Credit score insanity
Frequently, people stop me and ask me personal finance questions.
The most common is how to improve their credit history score.
If you need to improve your credit score, it means you have lousy credit. Before fixing the score, people need to ask how their credit got so bad to begin with.
Spring Gathering at Kirksville on Saturday
Hello everyone. If you want something to do, visit Kirksville this weekend. Let us start off with the Spring Gathering at the Community Center from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. This is the craft and vendor fair. Plan to spend some extra time, there is so many booths that it will take you a while to make it around.
Fresh strawberries at the farmer's market
Hello from Baldwin,
How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one. Well the weather has improved a lot. I have heard the lawn mowers buzzing since the rain stopped for a few of days. Everyone is trying to get their yard mowed and trimmed up before the next rain. Gardeners are out working diligently working the grounds that have finally dried enough to plant things. It has been very difficult on the gardeners with all of the rain to get their gardens planted. Oh, won’t those fresh vegetables taste good.
Union City Day is this Saturday
Union City Day is this Saturday. There will be music, food and yard sales including some "Made in Union City" items. I have heard that one of the music sessions will include folks from Union City Baptist Church with ukuleles. For yard sales, you can start setting up at 7 a.m. Saturday morning. It will be a great day to get out and meet your neighbors. Two raffles are underway, one is for a quilt handmade by Mary Sewell. Raffle tickets are available for several prizes including, a 32 inch TV, a Garmin GPS unit and Paula Deen Cookware. See a Ruritan member to purchase tickets. Drawings will be after 2 p.m. All proceeds from both raffles will go to the floor replacement fund.
The sun is going to shine for us
It's another cloudy Tuesday here in Paint Lick, but folks, the sun is going to shine for us all this week, so we can get into our gardens and plow up our fields and just be happy that maybe the rain will stay away, at least for a little while. We have a wonderful breeze out that will soon dry the ground.
