Hello Logan County! It is good to be alive and here in Logan County. I have just completed writing a lengthy weekly article that took me over two hours and then lost it in my computer so here I go writing it all over again. Possibly a little shorter this go round.
My dear friend Nancy Watson died unexpectedly this week. She and her husband ran the wonderful gift shop in Adairville. She will be greatly missed. There was a memorial service for her this past Wednesday. Funeral services will be in Ohio later in the week. For more information check with the Adairville City Hall.
A great man from Adairville, Sonny Rogers, is under the weather. If you know Sonny send him a card. I think it will make him feel better.
The Red River Meeting house just sent out their latest newsletter. They have become a very busy community organization. Since 2008 they have been holding services at 3 P.M. the first Sunday of each month. They need donations to complete several projects. These include a new pavilion and restrooms, postage, two state markers and meeting house repairs. Donations are tax deductible. Contact Richard Moore at 270-539-6528 or 2459 Trimble Rd., Adairville, KY. 42202.
Congratulations to our new dog food plant in Auburn. It is a huge factory and employees a lot of workers. It is a real boost to the local economy.
Where does our US tax dollars go? I have heard so much about where our tax dollars go that I decided to check out what the candidates for the Presidency of the USA were saying and to keep them a little more honest. Here is what I found: Education 6%, Government 6%, Veteran Benefits 5%, Housing and Community 5%, Health 5%, International Affairs 3%, Energy and Environment 3%, Science 3%, Transportation 3%, Labor 2%, Food and Agriculture 1 % and the Military 57%. So much for some of the lies some of the candidates have been telling.
I went to Gatlinburg Tn. last week with several of my cousins. It was my first visit in 15 years. What a change. Too crowded for me. I liked Pigeon Forge much better. I could hardly believe the weather was in the low 70s each day. Wouldn’t you know my Baptist cousins all wanted to play Rook. It is a good game.
Time to go. Good night Mrs. Calabash where ever you are.
