WKU LOCKDOWN. I applaud Western Kentucky University last week, on their swift lockdown of the premises at the threat of possible violence to the students and personnel. I had some anxious moments upon hearing the news, until I found that my granddaughter, Emily, was at work instead of attending classes that day. One feels for any who are in danger, but it does make a difference when we feel our children or grandchildren are in harms way. I again recognize with gratitude their swift reaction to the situation. CORRECTION. Correction to last week’s news about Cecilia Homemakers; I inadvertently omitted the name of a visitor who joined the club – Patty Helm. Sorry for the mistake. CHILI SUPPER. The Chili Supper served Friday evening was well attended at the Stephensburg Lodge Hall to obtain funds for the Brother’s and Sister’s Club to help the needy this Christmas and throughout the year. There is constantly someone needing assistance to help pay a utility bill or something. Thanks to all who helped in any way. PIRTLE CHAPTER. Pirtle Chapter O.E.S. will host their annual fundraiser, “Christmas in November Bazaar” from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Masonic Lodge Hall on Ky. 86. Delicious homemade goodies such as cakes, pies, bread, candy, jewelry and handmade crafts will be for sale. Your support will be appreciated. The monthly Fish Fry is also from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Stephensburg Masonic Lodge Hall in Franklin Crossroads on Ky. 86. Pirtle Chapter No. 449 Order of the Eastern Star will have their regular meeting Saturday evening with a soup supper at 6:30 p.m. Bring your favorite soup. This is “Hobo Night,” reminding us of Halloween just past. GET OUT THE VOTE. Be sure to get out to vote Tuesday, as this will be an election that will affect our future perhaps for decades. I have heard many who aren’t certain for whom they wish to vote. Whomever you vote for, please vote for the person who stands for what you believe in the most, not the party he represents. I don’t believe I have ever voted a straight ticket, as there is usually some on both parties I prefer. I shall certainly be glad when it is over; I am so tired of listening to the mud-slinging and untruths or half-truths, etc. I wish they could just tell us what they hope to accomplish, instead of demoralizing the opponent. We all know they can’t do all those things alone without the backing of Congress, etc. CHURCH NEWS. We attended the Severns Valley annual Singing Convention Saturday evening and enjoyed it a lot. A great number of people attended, although they said there weren’t as many there as usual. College Heights United Methodist dart-ball team played Vine Grove United Methodist Church there, losing two games to the Vine Grove team and winning one. They will play Longview Methodist team at home tomorrow night, hoping to do better then. Some of College Heights' good players aren’t playing as yet this year, as is they only have enough to play without any spares to replace someone who can’t be there. They are hoping some more will join in helping play; they have a lot of good clean fun. College Heights Administrative Council meets at 6 p.m. today. A called meeting was held last Sunday to discuss completing the newly built altar by replacing the defective and worn out projector. A group will install the new projector the first two weeks in November. “Trunk or Treat” was held Sunday afternoon and was well attended; many participated in the contest for best decorated trunk. First prize, $50, was won by the Firquins, Allen and Beth; a child dressed as a monk and an “Invisible Man." Second prize, $40, went to Kevin, Janet and Emily Cartwright. I’m sure they had a lot of fun. The Children’s Choir and Youth Choir did a wonderful job singing for the traditional service Sunday morning. These choirs meet Wednesday evenings for practice, if you would like to join in. Children’s choir, for ages 4-12, meets at 6:15 p.m. Youth choir, ages 12-18, meets from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The adult choir meets at 7 p.m. Wednesday for Christmas choir practice with regular choir practice at 7:45 p.m. If you would be interested in singing in either of these choirs, you may call 765-4284 and leave a message if no one answers. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. Belated 25th anniversary greetings to Joe and Glenda Dohn of Hodgenville. As Joe grew up, we lived as neighbors, in sight of each other’s house. He is the son of Fred and Nannie Berry Dohn. Here’s wishing them many more happy years together! GET-WELL WISHES. Get-well concerns include: Cynthis Fullen, Amaryllis Edwards, Don Mullens, Foster Skeens, Kathy Farley, Ruby Fentress, Marine Burba, Mallory Goodman, Karen Hunley, Cindy Bagley and Arnold Fulmer ass well as many others in or outside our church. Also remember our military, Brandon Freeman, Brandon Swartzlander, Jay E Holmes, Mike Holmes, Trevor Flowers, Matthew Eubank, Jack Bryant, Tyler Grinstead, Charlie Smith, Philip Fulmer, Josh Webster, Sean Farley, Robert Gibson, Damien Rayls, Jennifer Tarrance and Mike Tarrance, all others, as well as our country leaders. SYMPATHY. Our condolences to the family of Ann Lucas of Rineyville, especially to her grieving husband, Joe, and children. They lived on my mail route while I was working. Also sympathy to the family of John Burch Richardson who passed away last week. He was a brother to Clarence Richardson of this area whom we have known for many years. His nephew, Mike Richardson, lives just up the road from us. Our condolences to all who have lost loved ones. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you always know they are there.” ----Unknown. HINT. Leftover Snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert: Simply chop them up with the food chopper; peel, core and slice a few apples, place them in a baking dish, and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream. YUMMMM! LAUGH LINE. At an Optometrist’s office: If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place. NEWS NEEDED. Call or send to idodson17@kvnet.org, putting News in the subject line; send by Monday morning.
