And sympathy to the family of Eula Chris- tine Moore Renfrow. She was born in McHenry, a daughter of the late Nathan T. "Nat" and Lelia J. Burden Moore. Also, sympathy to the fam- ily of LiUian Marie Chapman Crim. She was a daughter of the late Amos and Maude Render Chapman.

He was also preceded in death by a sister, Grace Leisure HiUard, (who was married to my uncle, the late Ervin HiUard). Aunt Grace passed away on October 1, 2005. I do know that survivors include two brothers, Willard Lei- sure (who lives in Ashland, Ohio); and Orville Leisure (of Pensacola, Florida) and a sister, Margaret Beasley (of Georgetown, Kentucky).

That is the Church where David's brother, Eric and wife, Amber and her sons attend. There was a baptism and two of Amber's sons, Cody and Chase were bap- tized. We are very glad for these two young men! About this time last year, her son Cole was also baptized there. I wanted to give a little update on our son, Sam and daughter-in-law, Amanda this week: Of course, as many of you know, you can keep up with what's going on with them through .his weekly column, "From Bea- ver Dam to Boston," which is a weekly feature in this newspaper. I know that many of you read it, because I have had so very many of you to let me know that you do, and how much you are enjoying it! We are so glad! But they are both doing well. In January at MIT, they have what they call January. Independent Activities Pe- riod (or IAP), in which they do research and such. So, Sam is doing research (some of it I believe at home), but there are times that he has to go over to MIT for meet- ings and such. Then, regular classes start back, after the holidays on February 7. In addition to classes, he has other work that he does at MIT, along with many other activities. He says that MIT is very difficult and that they really keep you very busy there. But, he loves going to school there! Even though it is very difficult, he made great grades this first semes- ter there. (Needless to say, .we are very proud of him)[ He keeps busy with some other things also. And Amanda keeps very busy working at the bank there, and doing some other things. (We are very proud of Amanda also)! They are making plans for April, to go to a conference in Atlanta, Georgia to make speeches there, and some professors and folks they know from Western Kentucky Univer- sity are also going, and will be making some speeches at the conference. They are cur- rently planning for him to teach a class on certain as- pects of wrestling there at MIT, during one of the se- mesters of:the next school year. He taught a class on wrestling at Western, but this one will be different. There are some other things which may be in the works also, and they are beginning to think about what they may be doing this summer when classes are out at MIT. Amanda is also thinking about making plans to pos- sibly start taking some classes to begin working to- ward her Master's Degree. So, as you can see, they are as busy as ever, but doing well. Later on, I will have more to report about them. I know everyone tells me that they like these little updates. And I want to say that so far, they have had some bad win- ter weather, but to me, it doesn't sound like it has been as bad as I thought it might be for them. But of course, there's quite a bit more of winter to go. Hopefully it won't be too bad for them. This Thursday, January 19 and Friday, Jan. 20, there will be a blood drive at West- ern Elementary School. Con- tact the school for more in- formation. January is Na- tional Volunteer Blood Donor Month. IMES-NEWS| LASSIFIEDS!J Ford 274-4905 Congratulations to Grant Sharp, son of Billy and Sherry Sharp (of Central City) on his graduation from Western Kentucky Univer- sity on December 17. Grant is starting his teaching ca- reer. We wish Grant the best! As usual, there are sick people to be remembered in prayer. Some are: T. Geary is a patient in Owensboro Medical Health System at this writing. He suffered a heart attack. Remember my friend, Lynn Warren's Morn, Patty Warren in prayer. Re- member little Alden Asberry in prayer. Remember David's cousin, Barbara Cummins and re- member Linda Sue Lindsey in prayer. I had talked to Doris Hillard (of Livermore). She has been in the hospital recently. Continue to remember: Raymond Goodman, Mike Johnson and his family, Kara Aldridge, Ronnie Key, Rev. Jeff Evans, Clyde and Marie Asbury and Wendell Porter, There have still been so many with bad colds and stomach viruses and related illnesses. Remember them in prayer, Remember them and others you know in prayer. I would like to say that we recently enjoyed hearing from a former teacher of Sam's, Sherry Sharp. She was his fourth-grade teacher at Western Elementary School. She was a wonderful teacher. We were so glad that he and her husband, li] ad son, Grant were • able,t@ attend the graduation/going away party in honor of Sam and Amanda last spring. Re- cently, I had updated her on how they're doing in Boston and we have received a nice card from her. Also, she sent a gospel CD that she has done: "He Did ItAll For Me." It has several songs on it that were written by her sister, Sue Adcock Vincent. She does a wonderful job on this CD. Their family use to sing at some churches here in the county some, The Russ Fam- ily. I'm sure if you know them, and would like to ob- tain one of these CD's, that she would be glad to see that you get one. She lives in Cen- tral City. So, you could get in touch with her. If you don't know how to get in touch with her, you could call me and I could tell you how. " The Ohio County Genea- logical Society and the Ohio County Public Library have now made it possible for Ken- tucky Death Certificates from 1911--1940 to be at the Ohio County Public Library on microfihn And also, death certificates from 1941 to 1954 have been ordered. So, if you are interested in gene- alogy, and would be inter- ested in any of these death certificates, keep this in mind. A person could find the ones they are interested in and then, make a copy of them. January is National School Board Recognition Month. I appreciate the Ohio County School Board for the good job it does. This week, I would like to thank Hazel Blair (of Cincin- nati, Ohio) for reading the column each week. Hazel is a daughter of the late A.J. and Lola Phelps Wakeland and was from here. We enjoy hearing from her every Christmas and I appreciate her kind words about the col- umn and about Sam's col- umn.
