    Happy 95th birthday to Flora Belle Veirs. Spring better be making an appearance soon. I am sick and tired of snow, rain, cold wind and cool temperatures. The Kentucky Wildcats just couldn’t get it done, but it was still a great season for them.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Beulah Jackson, Martha Childress, Kenneth and Rita Gibson, Jimmy and Janis Rogers, J.T. Sutherland, Susan Hornback, Harlis and Bessie LaFollette, Whitney Green, Steve Johnson and Billy Duncan.
