Where has this month gone? It seems that they no more than come in until they are gone. I have been enjoying this beautiful weather we have been having, aside from the wind, which has been exceptionally strong. As the old saying goes “Make hay while the sun shines” has been coming true in this area, it seems that everyone is either cutting, baling or caring for it in some manner.
BIRTHDAY WISHES. Birthday greetings this month go out to Wendy Goodman, June 1; Brenda Drane, June 2; Mallory Goodman and Early McCoy, June 4; Anthony Goodman and William Smallwood, June 5; Maddie Rose Davis, June 7; Megan Smith, June 8; Alyssa Johnson, June 10; Travis Goodman, June 11; Ashley Masters, June 12; Samantha Reams, June 15; Dale Lyons, June 20; Tara Tillotson Steele, June 23; Ann Davis and Gordon Burba, June 24; Jonathan Foster, June 26; and Ed Goldsmith, Don Hill and Everett Cardwell, June 28. May each of you have the best birthday ever and many more just like it. God Bless you.
VISITS. We were glad to have our son, James Barnes, eat dinner with us Monday evening. Nothing like having family visit with us. Our daughter-in-law, Marcia Barnes, also dropped by for a short visit.
NASCAR. Wayne Barnes and Bob Macy spent the weekend in Charlotte, N.C., watching the NASCAR races. I understand they weren’t very far from where the camera cable collapsed injuring several people. I don’t think there were any life threatening injuries.
SYMPATHY. We paid our respects Sunday afternoon to the family of Willie J. Berry at Coffey and Chism Funeral Home in Vine Grove. The Berry family has been good friends of mine for many years and lived as close neighbors for quite sometime.
Condolences also go out to the family of Betty McClaugherty, a hard working member at the College Heights United Methodist Church and our Sunday school class mate. A meal for the family and memorial service was held at the church Tuesday evening.
Sympathy also goes out to the family of Warren Moore, an acquaintance of ours for many years, and lodge brother to Floyd.

CHURCH NEWS. I had a blog this week from the Morriseys, Mike and Sherri, telling of all the great things that are coming to pass in Thailand, where they now are missionaries. It told of the many churches being planted, their term of churches being organized and built. They said they were home here in the United States, now helping to care for his mother, Lois Morrissey, who is seriously ill. Please keep this family in your prayers.
College Heights UMC Church News: Pastor Adam Sparks presented a very good sermon Sunday. Preceding the sermon, Ken Drane presented his testimony, “Imagine,” telling about 50-plus years ago when the congregation outgrew the space available, and how people sacrificed to build the sanctuary in which we now worship. That we did it then and we can again make more space to accommodate our needs.
This afternoon the administrative council meeting is at 6 p.m. Also at 6 p.m., the youth summer shindig will be held at the Bagley’s, 592 Lombardy Drive, Cecilia.
Beginning June 4, the knitting and crochet class for beginners or experienced will meet at 10 a.m. each Tuesday and at 6 p.m. each Thursday. If you have supplies or projects, please bring them.
Hope to see you in church on Sunday.
HARDIN COUNTY FAIR. The Hardin County Fair will celebrate 50 years within the community this July. To mark this occasion, the Hardin County Fair Board and Pageant Committee is inviting all past Miss Hardin County Fair winners to be present for a special recognition during the Miss Hardin County Fair Pageant on the evening of July 8. If you are a previous Miss winner or have contact information of a previous winner, please contact Linda Thomas, 735.6054 or firstname.lastname@example.org information.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. Seen on a church bill board in Cecilia. “God sent the first text message. The Bible.”
HELPFUL HINT. A simple solution to treat dirty spots on your clothes is mix equal parts of regular, not sudsy, household ammonia, water and liquid laundry detergent, put in a spray bottle and spray greasy or dirty spots, shirt collars, or what have you. I never have had it to fade anything yet. Let it sit awhile, if extra dirty before laundering.
