“Super Monday day before Super Tuesday”
Good morning! Super here, there and everywhere. Knock, knock, knock well, caught right in the middle. Why? For this district one is a nephew, one is a cousin and one is a friend. So indeed no this column is definitely no political, no column for the past umpteen years we’ve been candidating, yet no one else seemed not to be very interested. For one thing we can truly say in which we really appreciate all my supporters, the calls through this column most of the time even in the grocery store, Dollar Store or wherever. Here comes this tap on my shoulder, “Hi Tri-Bee” the question is asked, “Are you the one we read about in your column?” I have to get my breath. Oh my what have I written in the column about them? Was it right or terrible mistakes before I own up to say yes. Well by then I have gotten back to normal. Yet truly this voting time is a time of a very hard situation. Yet who is at the top of the list? Our Lord is the ruler of everything and He never makes a mistake! Put Him first and all will fall in line.

For the upcoming events the David Warren Family will be with us preaching and singing in the a.m. service followed by a concert in the evening service. Then here it is again “Valentine,” which all the adults will be going out for Valentine dinner at the Olive Garden in Athens February 12, 7:15 p.m. Other events coming up later.
As we’ve stated in this column before, therapy no doubts continues to keep Col. Hicky going in the early twilight hours with his poems. It seems like a continuation of his life way back and up to the present time. His eyesight may be dim yet his voice of opinion takes care of the other problems. This proves that it’s not age that puts us back we can easily give up or keep on pressing forward.
