MARCH.The month of March is known for windy weather. So far we’ve had a few windy nights along with some rain and some cooler temperatures. I’ve seen some spring flowers popping up through the ground.Is that a sign that spring is near? Some say we may get one more snowfall.
TIME CHANGE. Did you remember to move your clocks up one hour before going to bed last night? We are now into what we call fast time.
SAVE THE POST OFFICE. The prospect of downsizing the Cecilia Post Office means the mail would no longer be brought to Cecilia for the carriers to deliver. The carriers would have to go to Elizabethtown to get the mail. Customers will have to do their transactions in Elizabethtown. If you disagree with this action, let the Kentucky Legislators know immediately. Evidently they think small hometowns aren’t important enough. The post office is an important part of the community. This may also lead to closing the post office permanently. Let your voices be heard on this matter. Your opinions must be heard in the next week, before March 20. Contact Rep. Brett Guthrieby calling (202) 225-3501, fax: (202) 226-2019 or write to 308 Cannon House Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20515. This action also is targeting the Eastview and Big Clifty post offices. Spread the word to your community members.

HOOVER’S WIT. An old fellow had a pretty good pig. He didn’t have anyplace to keep him during the day. He thought he would take him down the road to a neighbor’s place. The first day he had a terrible time getting him in the wheelbarrow, but he did and took him down. The next day it was a little easier to get him in the wheelbarrow. So the third day it was a dark and rainy morning and he said to his wife, “I’m not going to take that pig down there this morning.” So she got up and looked out the window and then yelled to her husband. “Ye might as well git up and git ready. That there pig is already clumb in that wheelbarrow, ready to go.” This story was told by Dr. Logsdon.
