    Finally it seems as if spring is ready to get here. I have returned from Missouri safe and sound and have been keeping really busy since coming home. As you will see as you continue reading the article today, things are getting busy in many of the areas around us. I love it because it means summer is revving up and all the great things that come with it. Thanks to all who took the time to notify me of upcoming events.

    So sorry I was unable to send my news to the paper last week. I had it typed and ready to go, but my desktop was in the shop and my laptop computer wouldn’t recognize the address I was trying to send my news too. I kept trying but you know those technical items have a mind of their own, and won’t cooperate. Someone called to find out if I was sick. So some of the announcements didn’t get in, and it’s too late this week.

    NCAA.Well to say the least it was very interesting this year. Kentucky Wildcats being runner-up when nobody thought they would even make it that far. I am still proud of the team.
