Good morning, neighbors. I hope everyone is well this week.

I know we usually are talking about how hot and dry it is this time of year. This year, however, I find myself having to wear flippers and a snorkel while walking the dogs and chopping down the jungle also known as my yard. I do keep in mind that it could be much worse. We could be in a drought with no relief in sight.

The St. Charles Community Center will host the next gospel singing at 7 p.m. Aug. 20.

The Outreach Center will host the next breakfast from 8-10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27. If you would like to rent the Outreach Center please contact Janice Suttle at 270-669-4060 or Amy Franklin at 270-836-1312. The Outreach Center is at 335 Princeton St., St. Charles.

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to: Jonni Rodriguez, Matthew Lantrip and Thurman Gamblin, Aug. 18; Wayne Woodruff and Chris Summers, Aug. 19; JoAnn Travis, Jackie Menser, Alan Jennings and Daniel Cobb, Aug. 20; Amelia Slaton, Aug. 22; and Pam Wallace and Robert Pollard, Aug. 23.

Happy anniversary to: Chris and Kendra Davis and Greg and Tara Camplin, Aug. 18; and Floyd and Pam Wallace, Aug. 23.

Let us please remember our U.S. Soldiers, neighbors and our country, as well as many unspoken requests in our prayers. Until next week, God bless you and God bless the USA.

If you have any news to share, events to make known, church announcements, prayer requests, birthdays, anniversaries, hunting and fishing news — or even if you just want to say “Hi” — please feel free to email me at or call me at 270-871-1775. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
