What a sad week for our County. There are so many hurting for so many different reasons and each and every one of them need our prayers. I pray that God will touch each of the people involved and their families. We never know how things can come to the point that would lead to the events of yesterday but God knows and knows the needs of each and everyone involved.
The smell of fresh cut grass is always a sure sign of spring and many were out this week doing just that. The tulip trees, the redbud trees are showing off and it is a sight to behold. Love, love, love spring.
Ann Burchett has had knee surgery. Be in prayer as she recovers. Nora Faye Allen had knee replacement as well this week so keep her in your prayers also. It seems she had this done on Willis’ birthday so Happy birthday to Willis and thanks to a great son in law Kevin Armistead for taking you out on your day.
I told you last week that our trash pick-up is going to $15.51. After contacting Scott Waste, I found out that was a mistake on their letter to me. It is actually going to be $13.20. This is much better.
Remember the Country Angel Gift Shop is still having their going out of business sale. This week everything is 25% or more off. Open Wednesday through Saturday. Go by and stock up on gifts that will be sure to please. Lots of great bargains.
Adairville’s own Nick Riggins and the Hard Dogs will be the grand finale on Saturday night of the Strawberry Festival. Nick and Matt Jenkins, along with me will be on feedback next Wednesday, March 23 at 9 p.m. with Don Neagle. Be sure and listen in to hear for the first time some of the songs on their CD. They will be playing at The Country on 28th Avenue North in Nashville on April 1st. Everyone in Adairville and Logan County needs to go down and support this band.

What has happened to our country? I realize that change is necessary and I embrace change, but it bothers me to know that we have become a country with no rules. We can’t tell children to sit down, be quiet, and listen. You also can’t tell them they can’t bring their cell phones to school. What happened to the reason? “Because I told you so.” And this is not the children so much, it’s their parents. Are you kidding me? Parents send their children to school, which is a privilege in itself, to be taught by men and women that spent several years and many dollars getting their degree and have to continually get updates on their degree and have the nerve to tell the school that you can’t tell my little darling what she/he can and can’t do. I cannot imagine what the school administration at my elementary school would have said if my mother had told them what they could and could not do. I believe they would have said you need to take your precious little girl and go home. Rules are in place for reasons, they teach us our limits. Rules are important, imagine a four way stop with everyone not obeying the rule. Rules are necessary or else we become a people that believe we should be able to do as we please when we please without any consequences. An entitlement society, one that can have all the good things our country offers but on our terms. Oh wait, I think we are there.
“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields”
