Sonny Caudill celebrates his birthday


Several attended church at Little Cowan on Sunday. Elder Brad Dutton and his wife came from Louisa. It’s always good to see them. Dinner was enjoyed by all at the close of the meeting.

Seems like our winter season has gone by fast. Not many coming or going. I don’t think the schools missed many days this year due to bad weather.

Mr. and Mrs. Chester Rayburn spent the weekend on Cowan and attended church at Little Cowan.

About everything you see on TV is a ball game on Sunday after you come home from church.

I guess some are making plans to plant their gardens. Maybe a little fairy will plant mine.

We are proud of the many churches we have here in our communities. Being born again is the main thing.

I enjoyed a good conversation with my niece, Christine Gatton, Sunday afternoon. It was good to hear from her and all the family. They have a pretty busy life with the twins and the other grandchildren.

Happy birthday wishes to Mr. Sonny Caudill who celebrated a birthday this past week. They seem to come around faster as you get older.

Get well wishes to Mr. Jack Day. We missed him and several others at church Sunday.

Happy birthday wishes to Mr. Harold Vermillion. Hope he will be blessed with many more.

Aiden Lucas, son of Jonathan and Melinda Lucas of Kingsport, Tenn., spent the week with his Nanna, Linda Lucas. He visited his Aunt Jean and Cathy Fields, Brian and Jamie Banks, Scott Rammage and Colleen, and all the animals on their farm. Eddie Lowe cut his hair while he was on Cowan. Thanks, Eddie.

Mason Lucas, son Jonathan and Melinda, celebrated his first birthday at the Breaks Interstate Park. His relatives from Dickinson County, Virginia attended.

Jenny Lou Brown and her children, Bo, Crystal, and Jon, spent the weekend with her granny, Virginia Brown. Randy took the boys to Knott County where they saw a large herd of elk.

Gail Brewster and her niece, Liz, of Pell City, Ala., were here this week. They stayed with Carol and J.T. Caudill in Cumberland, and with Linda Lucas on Cowan. They also visited Liz’s dad and Gail’s brother, Scott Rammage, Tammie and Brian Banks, Elsie Boggs, Paula and Eddie Lowe, and Virginia and Doris.

Gail and Jenny Lou had spent happy childhood summers together on Cowan. They hadn’t seen each other for years and were glad to be reconnected.

The Cowan Homemakers met at the community center. Everyone enjoyed a delicious potluck lunch and the February and March lessons on herbs and spices and reading activities with children. They were happy to receive a new member, Dorothy Jean Miles, who has recently retired.

Belated happy birthday to Jennifer Combs of Ice. Happy anniversary to Steve and Brenda Boggs of Dry Fork. They were married at Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church.

Regina Crawford spent Friday night with her parents, Bennett and Linda Combs. On Saturday she went to the funeral of Angela Cox in Hindman. She had worked with her in Frankfort.

The Pine Mountain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met at Dairy Queen for their March meeting with the following members present: Nina Craft, Betty Horn, Marsha Banks, Stella Elam, Virginia Brown, and Mahala Frazier. We were pleased to have as guests Shirley Breeding, Zack Joseph, and James Craft II.

This was our meeting on “Honoring the Future” with American Heritage essays by Letcher County students. Zack Joseph presented a wonderful essay honoring the heroic action of his grandfather, James Breeding, during World War II.

James Craft II read an outstanding fictional essay on the Vietnam era.

We are very proud of these two Letcher County students and are confident they have a brilliant and rewarding future.
