As of the beginning of the week, the Meade County prairies look similar to a typical dry August, minus the leaves on bushes and trees. We have had very warm temperatures, with the exception of Tuesday of this week, returning to more like fall temperatures. Those like John Rhoden who is calving out heifers are very satisfied with this weather pattern.

Kathryn Spring turned 93 on Feb. 24. Three of her great grandchildren have birthdays on the same day! Her family gathered in the church fellowship room after Sunday’s service to celebrate her 93 years. Kathryn is very active for 93 years and is an inspiration to us all. On Friday she hosted a women’s Bible Study in her home with 11 ladies in attendance. Kathryn still drives herself and others to appointments when needed and is famous for her delicious monster cookies. Her friends and family are very blessed to know her and to have her so engaged in their lives. Happy birthday to Kathryn Spring.

For youth interested in the Mega Teen Retreat held at Sunshine Bible Academy one may visit with Bill Meirose or someone from the Community Baptist Church in Union Center. For those wishing to enjoy a good message on Sunday morning but are not up to attending church service, one may go on Facebook to watch Bill’s message at Union Center Community Baptist Church. He is very accessible for counsel for anyone in need of guidance, questions or a good visit.

This week marks the second to the last week of this year’s Legislative Session. They seem to be making more progress than most any other year in getting bills through the Chamber of origin. With next week as the last, they look to be finished a day early possibly. Time and circumstances will tell.

Mike and Yvonne Barry returned recently from their annual stay in Arizona. They enjoy bicycling, dirt biking, getting together with friends and watching the sunsets during the several weeks they are there. It is fun to stay in touch with their adventures via Facebook. However, we were happy to see them home safely and in attendance for church service in Union Center on Sunday.

Cody and Liz Rhoden and girls spent Sunday afternoon and evening helping Larry and Sandy with materials, moving and painting their office. The idea of slightly renovating even a small space seems to turn monumental when it becomes a reality. It appears their 2nd living area will be full of furniture, books and equipment for the full week at least. Walls, ceiling and floor will all receive a facelift.

The question at this time is ‘will March come in like a lion or a lamb?’
