Southern Crittenden County News: May 21, 2009

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

The weather in the area has been beautiful for several days in a row, giving people a chance to mow their yards and to plant and maintain flowerbeds. We would like to remind everyone to be careful if you still have broken limbs on trees. You might not be able to see the broken limbs once the newly sprouted leaves cover them.

Seven Springs is again searching for a pastor as Bro. Pleasant submitted his resignation.

The Dycusburg Community Group (DCG) needs volunteers for its annual town clean up next month. The DCG is still in the planning stages and needs your help. If you are unable to volunteer time but would like to make a contribution, please mail to Dycusburg Community Group, P.O. Box 112, Dycusburg, KY 42037. As we stated in last week's issue, funding for the July 4 fireworks show is nearly non-existent. We fear a show may not happen in 2009 unless someone steps up to the plate and donates money for the fireworks.

Get well wishes are extended to Jim and Debbie Richardson and to Parker Holsapple.

The day started a little chilly but warmed up nicely for the Sunday fish fry at Dycusburg Methodist Church on May 17. Several people came and the food was delicious. Proceeds benefit the Dycusburg Cemetery. If you were unable to attend but would like to donate, please send a check to Dycusburg Cemetery Fund, P.O. Box 4, Dycusburg, KY 42037. To view some photos of the event, look for "" on (you will need to create an account to view the photos).

Josh and Star Mahns recently hosted visitors: Josh's father, Jeff Mahns and grandfather, Walter.

Travis and Emma Sosh, Jenny Patton and Aliyah Frutiger had dinner on Saturday night with Chase and Jennifer Matthews at Lambert's Cafe in Sikeston, Mo. (According to the restaurant's Web site, Lambert's served 48,409 lbs. of fresh Mississippi pond raised catfish last year. That's a lot of fish! That's not all: The restaurant is known for their "throwed rolls." Last year, they served 2,246,400 individual rolls!)

The "Almost Home" band played at the Riverside Café in Dycusburg on Friday. The store has been host to tons of great musical talent recently.

Happy birthday to Dan Henderson (May 25), Aliyah Frutiger (May 27), Michael McKinney (May 20) and Mitchell McKinney (May 20).

We're going to start including a "Riddle of the Week." Here's the first one: "The poor have it. The rich need it. It's greater than God. It's worse than the devil. If you eat it you will die." E-mail your answers to
