Greetings from Cowan Creek. Spring is in the air. Hopefully the snow is about to come to an end. I have seen a few Easter lilies in bloom (a lily is my favorite flower).
I have already found out that you need to write better when reporting the news. I apologize to Caleb Baker. His name was published wrong. He was the second place winner along with Michael Watts in the Alice Lloyd College Fishing Tournament.
On Friday, March 21, Marty and Vicky Keith were to be heading home. Marty had a motorcycle accident on October 14. He broke his neck at the C5 and C6 vertebrae. A WYMT news crew was to be there for his homecoming along with lots of family and friends. They have Facebook (MartynVickieKeith). If you would like to send a donation, the address is 376 College Road, Cumberland, Ky. or call them at (606) 73309677.
Vickie is the daughter of the late Sherry Paige, twin sister to Shelia Paige. Wonderful family. I am sure it will be hard at times for them. They have three children and they have not got to be a family until now. Continue to pray for strength for all.
Get well wishes to Gypsy, the aunt of Frieda Boggs. She has been sick. God bless the ones who take care of their loved ones when they get older. I know what a challenge it is. Prayers for all.
The spring floods deposit tons of manmade waste along our riverbanks and creeks. Week before last, a group cleaned up Little Cowan Creek. I saw on the Internet where Cumberland Falls is having a meet on Saturday, May 17, to help restore the falls to its natural beauty. Meet at the visitor center at 9 a.m. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt and cookout lunch. The address is 7351 KY 90, Corbin, Ky. 40701 or call (606) 528-4121. They rent cabins, you can camp or stay at the inn. The food is buffet and at night the raccoons and skunks come out. They are everywhere! It is know as the “Niagara of the South.” I highly recommend visiting this park. The moonbow is beautiful in the fall.
I am not a fan of throwing trash down on a beautiful planet made by God. Help keep America clean, by choice!
Yvonne Brown Sutphin is visiting her sister Linda Combs and family this week.
Happy birthday to Robbie Brown’s grandson, Benjamin Rankin of North Carolina. He is four years old.
Hello to Arminta Ison Jenkins, who lives in Texas. Thanks for the peanut butter candy.
Remember Lois Brown Sturgill of Ohio, in your prayers. She is the daughter of George and Siller Brown of Cowan.
On March 21, Michael Campbell walked over 200 miles and made it to the highest point on the Appalachian Trail. I cannot even imagine walking 200 miles. Said his feet hurt and he definitely enjoys setting his own hours. His wife Kendra is visiting throughout his journey. I am sure he enjoys seeing her. He takes off a few days and heads back to the trail. Follow Michael at walkingoffthe war. blogspot.com///.
Doris Banks brought me up some more news so she got to see my house. Said she needed the walk. She lives in the second house down the road from me. I am named after her! She surprised me!
