Whitesburg KY

Wendy Ison turns 17 years old


The Fourth of July really went out with a big bang. it came a storm and the thunder and lightning seemed to be in competition with the fireworks at Whitesburg. Mayor James W. Craft and his workers really went to the limit to have a great Fourth of July in West Whitesburg Plaza. There was a stage and different groups and then he also had Gene Watson, a special singer, perform. There were food booths and I thought it was really enjoyable in spite of the thunder and lightning, the fireworks were still shown. It was quite a show. Keep up the good work, Mayor Craft and all the city workers. The police department was doing its job also, keeping it clean. Great job to all you police officers.

I want to wish my daughter, Wendy E. Ison, a very special happy 17th birthday July 8 with lots of love. A daughter is a daughter all her life. A son is a son until he takes a wife. Those words have never been so true.

Wendy and myself attended church at Whitesburg Freewill Baptist Church last Sunday. It is such a spirit-filled church. I love going to this little church. Services start at 11 a.m. Sunday mornings and they have evening services starting at 6 p.m. Sunday evenings. Then on Wednesday they have services starting at 6 p.m. So if you would like to attend a church full of Jesus Christ’s spirit, it would be a pleasure to have you come and join the services.

The month of July is full of birthdays. I want to wish my nephew, Donnie Bolser of Cincinnati, Ohio, a belated happy birthday, which was July 2. I also want to wish my nephew who lives in Owenton a happy birthday, which is July 14. I also wish my niece, Rhonda J. Craig of Lawrenceburg, Ind., a belated happy birthday on July 5.

Rod and Sheryl Wynn of Kingscreek had a birthday party for their daughter, Katie, at John and Andrea Cornett’s on July 7. Several friends and family were there enjoying a pool party, the food, and cake and ice cream.

I was told by a ranger that Carr Creek Lake is the cleanest it has been in years and if you’re single it’s a great place to meet a friend. It’s a good place for single parents and just a good clean, fun place to hang out. I’ve been there. I know it’s true. See you all at Carr Creek Lake beach. It’s also a good place to fish. They make some of the best food at the boat dock. If you’re down there, try their chili chips and cheese.
