Recently my sister, who is a teacher in another county, brought a bus load of kids to the Golden Corral restaurant here in Winchester. The kids had been on a field trip to Natural Bridge and needed a place to eat that would please everyone. Our Golden Corral gave them excellent service and a good value for their meals and was very accommodating, despite having a busload of middle school kids drop in unexpectedly. My sister was impressed with the service. I thought that such a good experience at a local restaurant should not go unreported.

Members of the Nicholasville Lions Club enjoyed the sunny weather Saturday, April 30, as they worked outdoors painting and planting flowers at the Jessamine County Head Start Center, located on Drake Lane in Wilmore. In addition to sprucing up the outside, shelves were purchased and items off the center’s wish list were purchased to enhance the learning atmosphere for the 64 children who attend the center. The center offers preschool for children ages 3 and 4 years old who are at or below the poverty level or who may have learning difficulties that can be focused on at the center to provide a jumpstart to kindergarten and elementary school.

After writing and submitting my column on growing old gracefully, we met with our dear friends Maxine and Eddie, who are both in their 80s. If ever I saw anyone age gracefully, it is these two, so while we ate at Golden Corral, I brought up the subject and asked for their take on it. Boy, did they add valuable and wise insight, so much so that here I am writing a sequel to my column. They listened to my ideas and picked up where I left off. Eddie, in his "Eddie-ism way," said, "Its all about 'adapt and adjust.

Dear Editor, A lot of area folk were disappointed when Freddie's was asked to move from its Fourth Street location after being there so many years. Now they are back at the corner of Stanford Avenue in the old Corner Grocery Store building. The first job I had in Danville was years ago working for Joe Taylor there. The food is good at Freddie's. Now, the next question is when is Captain D's returning to Danville? The former Starbucks building would be a good location. These would increase jobs in the area and empty buildings would be full again.
