Florida was the place to be...
Amanda Barnett returned Sunday from a week at Strong River Camp and Farm in Mendenhall.
Ann Yager and Alex McCrosky of Danville, Ky., were in town over the weekend. While here, they visited with many friends.
Cade Cupp of Collierville, Tenn., spent some of last week with Becky Cupp while attending the Marshall Academy football camp.
The Marshall Academy varsity cheerleaders attended camp in Florida last week. They were accompanied by their sponsors, Dwana McAlexander and Christy Owens. After the camp was over, the group stayed on an extra few days to enjoy the beach in Perdido Key.
The Clydesdale Christmas Store group outdid themselves once again with the festival and rodeo in Byhalia last week. Saturday night’s band was phenomenal and had everyone dancing - young and old alike. The rodeo was a wonderful event for all to watch. Children and adults enjoyed the rides, as there were many from which to choose. Naturally, who could leave a festival without having the famous funnel cake and cotton candy? Hopefully the numbers were great for this event, as the group who puts it on gives tirelessly to help underprivileged families.
Luann, Carlton, Casey and Darcie Gibson recently returned from a relaxing time in Orange Beach, Ala. The group travelled over after a softball tournament that was held in Gulfport the previous weekend. Jennifer, Jody, Jacob and Hailey McMinn and Bailey Blaker and Parker Stephenson, Hootsie and Stacy Hill and Josh and Kameron, as well as Taylor Hopper went on to Destin, Fla, after the tournament for a week of beach time.

Hester preaches sermon; enters seminary soon
Over the weekend, we had a special treat. Our granddaughter preached the sermon at the Calvary Episcopal Church in Memphis, Tenn., Sunday. She is very special and unusual. She is exquisite, petite, brilliant, and gung-ho for the Lord. She is married to a great young man who matches her and they have two wonderful children. She enters seminary school in Alexandria, Va., next month and will be there three years.
I asked her “Hester, when you finish, what shall I call you?” (as nothing seems appropriate) Father? No, Mother? No, Sister? No, Preacher? No.
She said she would let me know in three years.
Calvary Episcopal must be the oldest church in Memphis. It is gorgeous, gothic and covers a whole city block with an open garden in the center. Hester has attended this church all of her life. Her ancestors were the founders of the church.
Are you sick? Or sickly? Want to feel better? Just get off wheat! Something you may be eating may be killing you and you don’t even know it. Is your favorite food carrot cake? Or cookies? The culprit is called “gluten” and it is the heart of the little grain of wheat.
Nobody chooses to be allergic to the most delicious food. What people don’t know is that gluten-allergy can cause serious health complications even death. The truth about gluten is that the nation has a disease called “Celiac Sprue” which is an allergy to wheat, which affects the brain, the joints, every part of your body. However the insidious tentacles of celiac sprue can reach over into barley, rye, oats and other grains. People, as they age, begin to not feel so good, having migraine headaches or rashes.
Doctors a lot of times don’t recognize it and will treat you for other diseases, such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, psychiatric diseases such as anxiety or depression.
Children can have diarrhea or autism, because of having the hidden disease of celiac sprue.
If you want to feel better, just clean your pantry of wheat and start over. Eat vegetables, fruits, Jello, rice, ice cream or sometimes corn, but not a single crust of bread.
Watch out for cans of soup (the makers throw in a handful of wheat) salad dressings, lipsticks, and certain vitamins.
This disease affects one in 100 people. It isn’t a few who suffer, but millions of people who don’t realize they have the disease.
Those who are chronically ill are especially prone to this disease. It is a hidden epidemic.
Wheat was introduced into Europe during the Middle Ages and 30 percent of people of European descent carry the gene for the disease. All this information came off the know-it-all Internet.
If you prefer, go to the doctor and have allergy tests run and pay $800 or more to find out your problem. However, for free, in two or three weeks, you will be a new person if you learn to leave off the wheat. Getting off wheat will give you a new lease on life and you will have restored energy and live longer. Good luck! It’s hard but worth it.
