Hi! We’re right back into winter again – brrrr!
I still think folks could be experimenting with our weather somehow (science fiction, maybe.)
If the Chinese could seed clouds to make it rain just before the Olympics to clean the air, what else could be done? Hmmm.
The news around town is those Madison Central Indians bringing home the state championship last weekend. Way to go Indians! Everyone is so proud of all of you!
Don’t forget this Saturday,March 16, Flatwoods Christian Church will have a group going to Winter Jam 2013 at Rupp Arena.
If you plan to go with the group, they will leave Flatwoods at 4 p.m. The “10 Bands for $10” event will begin at 6 p.m. Contact Pat Jones if you want to go.
Get-well-quick wishes are sent to Traca Wooten. We know the broken arm and related surgeries will heal and you’ll be out and about in no time. All your friends have you in their thoughts and prayers.
Next Saturday, March 23, beginning around 9 a.m. or so, weather permitting, folks are asked to join in the Flatwoods Cemetery annual spring clean-up.
Some people like to take care of their loved ones’ grave personally, and that is appreciated.
The volunteers remove flowers and debris that have blown across the premises and generally just try to get things looking nice for the spring/summer season and to aid our caretaker in his mowing.
Waco Community Easter Sunrise Service is set Sunday, March 31, at 7 a.m., on Water Plant Road (off Bend Road,) College Hill. College Hill United Methodist Church sponsors the event. Tim Jones will be the speaker.
Happy birthday wishes to Tammy Tipton and Dennis Rose, March 13; Brandon McIntosh, March 16; Kayla Dargavell, March 20; and Tim Jones, March 22.
Happy anniversary to Tom and Lori Moberly, March 1; Leslie and Jessie Masters, March 8; and Eugene and Debra Styer, March 14.
That’s about it for this week – have a great one (the weekend weather forecast predicts warmer temperatures!)
This Daylight Saving Time switch takes a little getting used to, doesn’t it?
I find myself wanting to stay up later and have a hard time getting up in the mornings – who knew one hour could make such a difference!

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.
A little history and a lot of enjoyment for Memorial Day!
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year, on the fourth Monday, in May; however, Sunday afternoon is the day encouraged for grave decoration.
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women, who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces during the Civil War.
I thought I would tell you one of my family stories even though it’s not a Newby story. It seems no matter what part of the country you’re from, a country tale sounds the same.
