Milton’s Masons and Lions members celebrated the grand re-opening of their new shared clubhouse. The Lions Club invited the Masonic Lodge No. 947 to share its space, allowing the Masons to build their own meeting room onto the existing building.
The Masons also paid for renovations to the building, including making the restrooms handicapped accessible.
The project cost about $35,000.

Texting and driving? You may want to pull over.
On Jan. 1, a state law went into effect to help Kentucky law enforcement officials reduce the dangerous problem of “distracted driving.”
Anyone caught texting while driving will face a $25 fine for the first offense, plus court costs. Subsequent offenses carry a $50 fine, plus court costs.
The law also prohibits anyone younger than 18 from using a cell phone, even just to talk, while driving a vehicle. The same fines apply to violators.
Well, it’s official. I have, apparently, reached middle age.
It must be true, because two of my favorite Christmas gifts this year were a parafin-wax hand spa that my Dear Husband bought for me and a full-back/shoulder shiatsu chair-cushion massager that I bought for him. (Yes, some gifts I buy for him are for me, too.)
Oh, and did I mention the massager also includes heat? Woot!
