Southern Crittenden County News: Feb. 19, 2009

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

People are still cleaning up from the ice and wind storm that hit the state a few weeks ago. Needless to say, this will be a long road to full recovery. Several people reported broken bones, strep throat and all sorts of ailments and maladies. This is a winter storm that we won't soon (though we'd prefer to) forget.

Our sympathies are extended to the family of Joann Chaney, 76, of Dycusburg who died last week in Nashville. She was retired as substitute Dycusburg postmaster, was a former sales representative for Avon in the Crittenden County area and was a member of Dycusburg Baptist Church.

We also send our thoughts to the family of Ellie Mae Blake-Martin-Belt, 84, who died Feb. 14. She was a member of Seven Springs.

Alena Lambert sang with Joe Bennett at the Dycusburg Grocery recently. Owner Star Mahns says anyone who wants to come "pick and grin" at the store on Friday nights is welcomed. Call 988-3004 to confirm.

Josh and Star Mahns have been visiting family in Indiana.

Several from this area attended the National Farm Machinery Show at Freedom Hall in Louisville, including Larry, Margaret, Philip, Natalie, Rett and Calie Parish; Craig Boone; Chris Watson; Sean Wesmoland; Crystal Watson; Jared Belt; Floyd Turley; Nicky and Jonathan Waters; Chris Hooks and family; Jonathan Millikan; Jenny Patton and Travis Sosh. Snagging first place in the 10,200 lb. pro stock tractor division was Philip Parish driving "El NiƱo," pulling 244.49'.
