SNOW. Okay, enough already with the snow. We got a couple of inches on Jan. 20 causing schools to be closed two days. I’m ready for spring. I know, some enjoy the white stuff like my mom and sister. As I write this, they are predicting more.

NO SCHOOL. Hardin County Schools will not be in session on Monday.

CLUB NEWS. The Howevalley Vertrees Community Club met Jan. 24. The club is taking new memberships, $15 per person or $25 per family. Everyone is welcome.

Upcoming activities: There will be Bunco at 6 p.m. Feb. 12 at the club building. The cost is $10 per person. All proceeds will go to the club. POC: Trevor at 268-6229. Rook is held at 7 p.m. each Thursday. An Easter egg hunt is planned for April 16.

HOOVER’S WIT. The late Kentucky Colonel Frances Hoover wrote several books on Kentucky wit and humor. She lived in Howevalley. Each week I’m going to take something out of her books to put in the Hoover’s wit section. I hope you enjoy it.

Riddle: I want you to make a sentence using 4 words — deduct, defense, defeat and detail.

De duck went over de fence, de feet went over after de tail.

SYMPATHY. Sympathy is extended to the family of Helen Rose Hilton Allen. She was a graduate of Howevalley High School 1952 class. She went to school with my papaw, A. J. Holbert.

LAUGH LINE. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Fanny. Fanny who? These jokes aren’t very fanny.
