Florence News 3-8-18

  The 2018 flood is the big news this week. It didn’t get in my house but in the basement so we thought we had better move as we had good help there. Thank God for friends, neighbors and relatives and maybe even an enemy or two who got out at 3 a.m. to help. Jeremy and Jeff Peelman were there for me in Red’s place. They helped him in the ‘97 flood and knew what to do. Thanks to all who helped and are still helping.

  Heard the Ruler’s Grocery in Madison will close soon. It was a good place to shop.

  Get well prayers go out for Chuck Pickett. He spent a few days at KDH with congestive heart failure and other complications. Hope he is better now.

  Bonnie Duckworth’s dad, Verle Truitt, spent some time at Dearborn County Hospital on the weekend and I haven’t heard how he is. I know Dearborn County Hospital has a new name, but I forget what it is. Hope Verle is okay.

  Dale Thompson is getting better.

  Glenda Sullivan celebrated her birthday at Hometown Pizza in Warsaw, Kentucky on Sunday with Bonnie and Roy Duckworth, Ken and Sylvia Byars, Mark and Rhonda Scott, Patty Chase, Nancy Johnson, Judy Lozier, Tiffany Rininger and David Wentworth. Happy birthday Glenda.

  I met this nice young man at Lana’s Beauty Shop where we were talking about me writing for the Florence News and jokingly said we would get his name in the paper. He is Wesley Bruce so here it is. He was a nice guy.

  Bonnie and Roy Duckworth went to Simon-Kenton High School to see grandson John Duckworth in the play “Robin Hood.” He played the part of ‘Little John.’ John was also recognized as one of the seniors in the cast following the play.

  Bonnie and Roy spent Saturday with the grandchildren Kiersten and Kaden McClure in the Madison area and Sunday Bonnie and Roy went to see dad, Verle Truitt. He was doing better at the hospital.

  Sympathy to the families of Travis Griffith and Fauna Scott Ashcraft.
