Bowen Heirs picks up 45 bags of trash and a toilet
“That Time Again!” ~ A poem by Oakland Christian
Too much government?

I was getting my haircut by a beautician in Pendleton County a year or so after I had come to Pendleton County as Superintendent of Public Schools. Another woman was waiting to have her hair trimmed and I engaged her in conversation. She told me that she had a 14-year-old son and a 12-year-old girl, both of whom were students in the public schools in Pendleton. I asked how they were doing, leaving the question open-ended.


I was walking down my road the other day and observed a long black mark on the road where someone had burned rubber. The marks extended for probably, one hundred feet. If I were estimating the cost of such an exhibit, I would say that the cost would probably be 25 to 50 dollars.  Some young person’s mommy and daddy had to pick up the cost, because a driver with that mentality certainly would not have any money. The driver needed a lesson in frugality.

It is beautiful May morning with the sun shining and the temperature already in the 60s, a perfect day for gardening!

We had a nice but cool day on Sunday to host church services. It was council meeting so church left out around 2:30 p.m. Services began at 9 a.m. Around 11:15 a.m., we had everything ready to begin serving lunch. We had table settings for 34 people at a time.

“The Undertaker”

An undertaker may be an individual who takes it upon himself to complete a task. In our society an undertaker is one whose business is to prepare the deceased for burial and to arrange and manage funerals.

This profession is very necessary, valuable and important. One has to be qualified with knowledge in the category of a doctor and counseling skills of a psychologist. He or she must have the compassion to extend comfort, care and love to folks who are hurting in the time of the loss of a loved one.
