  • Normally (depending on which definition of normal you are using), I am not given to much grumbling. I do admit to every now and then exercising my right to complain a little, but it is not anything to write home about.
    If you would inquire with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage she might have a different opinion altogether. It seems that the only thing we really agree on is that we do not agree on too much. Our biggest disagreement would be in this area of grumbling.

    Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to “normal” after the tremendous time we had during EncountErfEst ’10.
    I wanted to say a great big “Thank you” from all of the staff at North Chiefland Church of God for your support, thoughts and prayers.

  • The 2009-2010 Levy County 4-H Sewing campers completed a community service project as part of the camps. They made necktie coolers for our soldiers. When soaked in cold water these necktie coolers expand and assist with keeping our soldiers cool.  
    And as it happens, one of the fiscal assistants at the University of Florida IFAS Family Nutrition Program is married to a soldier. He happened to be home on leave as the summer was ending and has agreed to accept the coolers and take them back to the soldiers.

    Director, Quilt Museum
    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was a great day.  We had a Church group over from Hawthorne to come by and visit.  Some we hadn’t seen in several years.  
    Sometimes they come to see if I’m still here and I tell them my Lord hasn’t come yet so I’m still here.
