Cecilia Irene Dodson, 862-3808 By the time you read this Cecilia Days will have come and gone, a festivity we look forward to all year long. It also is one that those who work so hard getting everything set up and all preparations ready, even though they enjoy the day, are so tired they are also glad when the day ends. Those who participate in the contests are happy if they are a winner. I have attended Cecilia Day (when it was only one day, now we start Friday evening) ever since it began back in 1971, and always enjoyed the parade and music, as well as many other things. Booths galore of many crafts and what have you. I had to miss several times while I was working, as I always had to work on Saturday. School is back in session here in Hardin County, so be very careful of those precious children boarding and leaving the school busses as well as those waiting along side the road for their bus to arrive.

Just to let the family and friends of Everett Smothers know, he now is residing at Woodland Terrace Health Care Facility. Though a native of Hardin County, he has been living elsewhere since 2001. GET-WELL WISHES. I was talking to my cousin in Breckinridge County the other day on the phone, Samuel McCoy, and he told me that he had been off from work for a month and still wasn’t able to go back. Someone in a stolen car ran off the blacktop and overcorrected hitting his vehicle head on, on the driver’s side to where he was unable to steer, then he went on into a bank. Remember him in your prayers. Those on our urgent needs list this week at College Heights include Cynthia Fullen, Andrea Hornback, Amaryllis Edwards and Creed Sutton. Regular concerns are given to the prayer team from your communications cards. We extend best wishes to all who are ill at this time. Also include in your prayers the leaders of our country as well as our active military including Jesse Preston, Brandon Freeman, Brandon Swartzlander, Jay E. Holmes, Mike Holmes, Trevor Flowers, Matthew Eubank Shawn Atcher, Jack Bryant, Tyler Grinstead, Charlie Smith, Philip Fulmer, Josh Webster, Sean Farley, Robert Gibson, Damien Rayls, Jenifer Tarrance and Mike Terrance. Kay Fulmer informed me Sunday that their son, Philip, will be stationed in Northern Iraq. She didn’t know yet the exact location. SYMPATHY. Sympathy is extended to the families of Tommy Rogers, James Wagnor, Steven Earl Elmore, John Minard, Ray Story, John “JW” Miller. And to all who are bereaved, our most heartfelt sympathy is extended. VISITS. Michael C. Ward and his fiancée of near St. Louis spent Friday night with his parents, David and Judy Ward. June Riddle, who has been visiting Naomi Ready the past couple of weeks, returned to her home in Massachusetts early last Sunday morning after her son and daughter-in-law came after her Saturday. ORGANIZATION NEWS. The Founder’s Day Picnic and ladies night for the Stephensburg Lodge No. 212 held the past Saturday was well attended. Thanks to Tim Smallwood for preparing a delicious meal of grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans and potato salad. And thanks to all others who brought an additional dish of food or dessert. CHURCH NEWS. College Heights happenings include: on Aug. 17 at 1:30 p.m. the Hispanic Ministry will celebrate its fifth anniversary. All church members are invited. A special music group will attend from Puerto Rico. The Administrative Council will meet at 6 p.m. Aug. 17 at the church. On Aug. 13, the Mountain Mission truck will be at the church to pick up donations, which you may start leaving Aug. 11 on the stair landing at the first entrance. Aug. 21 the United Methodist Women annual picnic will begin at 6 p.m. at the home of Duane and Gloria Whitford. The meal is potluck. Duane grills hamburgers and hotdogs, (I presume,) this has been the past routine. Those who have husbands or special friends also attend. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow, don’t walk behind me I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend” - Cornerstones ACTUAL HEADLINE. “War dims hope for peace.” Really! I would think so. HELPFUL HINT. Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer. If bees, wasps, hornets or yellow jackets get in your home and you can’t find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly. SUBMIT YOUR NEWS.
