Help decide our future

  • Oct 17, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:49PM

Theres an easy way to get involved in deciding the future of our communities, our county and our state.

They choose not to cast their ballots to vote on important initiatives, referendums or candidates for elected office. They leave those important decisions to others.

As a community, we have much for which we should be thankful

  • Nov 22, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:48PM

When we were in elementary school we all learned the story of Thanksgiving. On Dec. 20, 1620, 102 pilgrims sailing aboard the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock. Struggling through a devastating winter, 46 of the pilgrims perished. But their fortunes improved and the harvest of 1621 was a bountiful one. The surviving pilgrims decided to celebrate their blessings with a feast. Recognizing they couldnt have survived without their assistance, the pilgrims invited 91 Native Americans to celebrate with them.

Day of Remembrance honors victims of Holocaust

  • Apr 11, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 1:48PM

From out of the smoke of the fires and the blood of the murdered Warsaw ghetto, we imprisoned in the ghetto send you our heartful fraternal greetings. We know that you watch with pain and compassionate tears, with admiration and alarm, the outcome of this war, which we have been waging for many days with the cruel occupant. Let it be known that every threshold in the ghetto has been and will continue to be a fortress, that we may all perish in this struggle, but we will not surrender: that, like you, we breathe with a desire for revenge of the crimes of our common foe. A battle is being waged for your freedom as well as ours. For you and our human, civic, and national honor and dignity.
