Greetings Anton neighbors near and far. My birthday went by quietly this year with good smiles and good wishes. And I found out Dickie Cates turned 71 on the same day June 4 so sending belated wishes. He and wife Rita just got back from a cruise to Spain. If you see him at South Main Cafe or out about in town, he has stories and pictures of the exciting trip.
Judy and Bob Adkins and Coleman and Joyce Cardwell have been traveling closer to home to see grandchildren graduate.
Judy and Bob Adkins had three to graduate on the same day so could only attend one graduation. Their daughter Terri's twins, Erin and Evan, graduated from Anderson University on May 11 and son Ted's daughter, Kendall, graduated from Morehead State University. They went to see the twins graduate and got the two for one joy. And with cell phones and photos were quickly up to date on Kendall's cap and gown ceremony.

from page PP2Cardwell went to see granddaughter Sydni Crowell graduate from University of Louisville med school early in May, before the nice Messenger article about mother and daughter doctors with Dr. Stacey Fazenbaker. Then they watched younger sister Emmy Fazenbaker graduate from MNHHS. Grandparents are always proud but Coleman had a surprise bit of news to add. Emmy is heading to WKU and will start her Hilltoppers freshman year as a cheerleader. Busy she will be will be said of both young ladies, as bright and determined as their mother.
