Our sympathies are extended to the family of Orlin Long who died Dec. 18. We always enjoyed seeing him and Peachie in the Emmaus community.
J.T. Cobb, 83, of Elkhart, Ind., died Dec. 16 at Eastlake Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Indiana. He married Juanita Doom, daughter of Francis Marion Doom and Addie Lee (Duncan) Doom on April 29, 1943. His sister-in-law is Lola Mae Patton of near Dycusburg.
We also share in the loss of Leon Hodges who died Dec. 29. To all of these families, we please accept our heartfelt sympathies.
Bro. Lonnie Knight resigned from Seven Springs Missionary Baptist Church. He had served the church faithfully for several years.
On the sick list is Peggie Johnson who has been in and out of the hospital since November. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Happy birthday to Jonathan Millikan (Dec. 30) who celebrated his 21st birthday.
Barbara Ethridge left on Dec. 25 for Owensboro. From there, she joined Gary, Gina, McKenzie and Justin Noffsinger (and Gary's mother, Ann) and headed to Kennesaw, Ga., to spend the night. After Georgia, they motored down to the Tampa Bay, Fla., area. The Noffsingers went to a football game on Dec. 28 (Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Oakland Raiders). On Dec., 30, everyone enjoyed an outing to Busch Gardens. On Jan. 1, the Noffsingers went to the Outback Bowl game (Iowa Hawkeyes vs. South Carolina Gamecocks). Everyone returned back to Kentucky on Jan. 4.
Christmas pictures were taken with Santa at the Dycusburg Grocery. Even adults sat on (poor) Santa's lap! Happy holidays to all of our readers near and far!
