Pea Patch Adds Eyecatching Artwork to Building

If you know that Thursday’s are chicken salad days, then you must be familiar with Winnfield’s little treasure, Pea Patch Gallery.

This gem is owned by Gail Shelton who purchased the building in 1991, opening the doors in 1992 after renovations. When the building was first operated, it was “Heard’s Hardware” which opened in 1908, making this building over 100 years old. Breard Carpenter owned it after that, in 1967, who opened “Winn Department Store”.

Steve Bates speaks to Kiwanis Club, June 9, 2018

Kiwanis President-Elect Steve Bates spoke to the Kiwanis club June 9th about the changes in the tax act. For individuals, the biggest change is in the deductions bracket, down 3% in each bracket. The top rate is 37% for joint filing with over $600,000 of taxable income. The standard deduction increase will keep a lot of people from itemizing because the standard deduction will be more. The standard deduction is $12,000 for single individuals and $24,000 for married. If you itemize, home mortgages are deductible up to $750,000 but no second homes. Charitable contributions are at 60 % of taxable income. There is no state income tax deduction. A concern is that people will no longer be giving to charities if they are not able to itemize.
