Good news Auburn. Josh Thomas, son of Lynn Thomas, who was very seriously injured in an automobile accident several years ago, stood for the first time Tuesday Oct. 15. Way to go Josh. Keep it up.
Wish we could make Howard “Pig” Hall all better. He’s fighting a daily battle with shingles, the most painful and worrisome disease.
I’m not a medical expert, however I recently read about the healing power of vinegar. Dr. D. C. Jarvis, a noted author and country doctor of alternative medicine, recommends dabbing apple cider vinegar directly on the shingles and repeat four times a day as well as during the night if need be. You may find instant relief of the itching and burning, and this could help the healing process. Refrigerated vinegar might be even better. Good luck Pig.
There is another new business open on Main St. Williams Flooring Center is now open. Stop in and see the new layout of the store at the southwest corner of Main and Wilson. Among other things the center will have Bissell Carpet Cleaner Unit rentals available. Up until now, this service was not available in Auburn. Store hours are Monday through Friday 8-5 and Saturday 9-2.
Colonial House Furniture has announced new dates for their open house, Oct. 16-20 regular store hours.
Mark you calendar for the Saturday Oct. 26 Cruise In on the Square. The car and motorcycle show, along with other fun activities begin at 10:00 am and continue until 2:00 pm. Vendor space is still available. For sign-up contact Patricia at 542-2700.
Hopefully the big hole at the corner of Main and Spring St. will be filled in by then. This inconvenience is due to the removal of a large tree and it’s root system, and to re-work the sidewalk.
If you have a big messy walnut tree, just know that there is a Mennonite family who will gather the walnuts. I’m sorry , but I did not hear their name, but they could save homeowners a lot of trouble.
The Senior Center had a crock pot meal yesterday with Paige Rodgers as guest speaker.

Reminder….Tomorrow is recycle day.
Deepest sympathy to my next door neighbor Pam Anderson. Her little poodle Sydney died this week. She was such a loveable and entertaining little companion. She would stop to day hello every time they came by on the way to the grass.
I must express my feelings about the loss of a special person this week. For many years Harold Prince has served his neighbors, the city of Adairville and south Logan County, as a hard working farmer and Magistrate in that district. He’d been fighting a lingering illness for some time and lost his battle Tuesday. Thank you Harold for all you hard work. We know you loved it. Our thoughts and prayers to Cecil and the family.
At the close of this column I would like to request prayer for some other Adairville friends with battles of their own, Nannette Starks King, Billy Smith, and Mary Ann Davis, all longtime hardworking supporters of their community. Hope you all have a great day and improved health.
Love you to Sandy and Spike Jr. Everyone have a blessed day.
