Announcement makes waves in Lennox Valley

As April moved aside for May 1998, the good folks of Lennox Valley had no idea how their world was about to change on Monday, May 4. On Talk Radio 88.3’s “Rendering With Raymond,” callers were equally divided between two topics of vital importance.

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

By Cathy Ledbetter 

In our culture, January is the month of shedding excess. We go on diets, join gyms, and go through our homes, purging excess and organizing what remains. I remember reading somewhere that January is the month that places such as Goodwill and Salvation Army get most of their donated items.

Elm Grove Echoes

By Rhonda Wyatt

Happy New Year! Time to make those resolutions, or perhaps be resolute about the fact you are NOT making resolutions. Whatever the case, it is a time of renewal and reflection. I hope everyone has a profitable and blessed 2016.

The Bend News

Christmas day was a very nice day, but old man winter came with a bang Saturday night and Sunday. Saturday night it started to rain and rain it did, then Sunday a mixture of rain and hail. The hail was light in and around the Bend until you got past the Stinnett’s and then the ground was covered. Sunday night more rain and some snow but it didn’t stick on the ground. Charlene Reavis called with information about her visitors over Christmas. Son Mark McCoury and daughter Cindy White and her great grand-daughter Austin Grace who lives in Florida and Debbie January, her daughter Amy and Megan Stewart of Coppers Cove.

Christmas on the Farm

By Gene Hall

It’s always a mistake to paint a mythological picture of farm life. The Norman Rockwell image never really existed. However, there are pieces of my childhood on the farm that my children never experienced, nor will my now three-month-old granddaughter. Christmas is one of those times.

The Bend News

By Jo Price

This Christmas you may have to dig out the Sun Screen instead of fur coats, gloves and such, as the weather man predicts weather in the 70’s. Santa may have to deliver toys and stuff by pickup this year. There is a chance of rain after Christmas and should cool off for a day or two.

I’m (Not) Dreaming of a White Christmas

By Cathy Ledbetter

Today I was talking to someone and he mentioned what a beautiful day it was, sunny and mild enough not to need a jacket. Then he said, “But I sure hope it cools off for Christmas! This weather just wouldn’t be right for Christmas!” Then he wondered aloud what all those people in the Southern Hemisphere do because Christmas is in the Summer there.

The Bend News

By Jo Price

Sunday morning the wind blew in with gusto and the rain did come down leaving just a little over an inch. The weather was really nice for the rest of the day after the sun came out. Looks like we may be in for some cooler weather this week, but hey it is December you know. Jo Price would like to express her thanks to everyone who sent cards, flowers, prayed, brought food and visited after her knee surgery. It seems to be a slow process, but each day is better.

Brother Jacob livens things up with “No Shoes”Church

In 1999, Reverend Billy Joe Raymond was universally recognized as the fieriest preacher in Lennox Valley, with good reason. Not a Sunday, or Wednesday night for that matter, passed at First Baptist Church without an altar call and at least two re-dedications by souls who had wondered astray, ultimately finding their way home during a latter verse of “I Surrender All.
