WE HAVE A DUTY! (handwritten)

With two elections coming this week, it is the duty of every American citizen to go to the

polls and cast their vote for the candidate of their choice. Too many persons do not “take

the time” to vote and then gripes because the “wrong” person is doing the job all wrong,

and if their favorite had “gotten” in everything would be just fine. But did they help get

“their man” into office? Did they take that few minutes to go vote? NO. But these same

people are always the ones who holler the loudest when things go awry. A lot of voters

do not always vote in a primary, this writer included, because they and I see no reason

why we should have to declare our party. Afterall,(sic) they id put curtains on the voting

booths, so that we may vote in privacy. There are right and wrong people on both ballots,

but you must vote a straight ticket, so you will have to wait until November to “cross

vote” the ballot. So what ever (sic) your party choice, get out and vote in the Primary on

Tuesday, April 10, and the School Elections on Saturday April 14. Both elections will be

held at the Fire Station. Times that the polls will be open are Tuesday 6 am.(sic) to 6

am.(sic) end on Saturday 7 am.(sic) to 7 pm. SEE YOU AT THE POLLS

Easter (handwritten)

Easter—The first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the twenty-first day of March.

How do we get this setting for our Easter? The Nicene Council, in the year A.D. 325,

fixed this date for us. The earliest possible date for Easter with this figuring is March 22,

and the latest is April 25, of any given year. What is the Nicene Council? Where did it

get the power to set up such a rule? Well the Nicene Council was a council of the

Christian Church held in Nicea, in Asia Minor. The first council was called by Emperor

Constantine in 325, to settle a dispute of views concerning the Trinity. The council

adapted a creed that declared that God and Christ were of the same essence and

substance, and at this time set the time and date for Easter. It was questioned as to

whether the Jewish Passover, and the Christian Easter should be held the same day and

time and whether it should be on a Sunday. Easter is traditionally a time for spring to be

officially here and when the winter apparel is put aside for the doning (sic) of the new

and lighter things of spring. In most Christian Churches Easter marks the end of the

Lenten season. In some Protestant churches and the Catholic churches this season (sic) is

begun by a day called Ash Wednesday. Holy Week, the seven days preceeding (sic)

Easter Sunday, is a time given (sic) prayer and devotion. Easter Sunday is celebrated by

special music, flowers and services, in churches of all faiths. Just as spring puts on her

best green, so do people put on their (sic) dress and hearld (sic) the coming of Spring.

The Easter Lily is the traditional flower of Easter. Why, no one is quite sure. It has

become the symbol of purity and light, and of course the cross reminds us all as to the real

meaning of Easter. Easter is not the time for candy and toys for the children. It is the

time of when our Lord was nailed to the Cross to die for our sins. H did not have to do

this, but he knew that his Holy Father expected this of him, and this was his whole

purpose of being on this earth as a flesh and blood man. Where would this world be, you

and I, if Jesus had said, “I will not be nailed to the Cross?” But he stood in front of his

accusers and did not even defend himself. He knew that this was his fate and expected it

with all the humility of his (sic) of life. His last words to his Heavenly Father were

“Father forgive them, for they know not what they do”. He, of course knew what they

were doing, and never raised his voice to protest. How many of us are wrongly or rightly

accused and raise a great fuss? How many of us have forgotten the true meaning of

Easter, and only go to church to show off our new spring outfits? The Easter egg roll is a

custom started by President Hayes in 1878 and has continued, except for the war years.

Thousands of persons join in this light-hearted tradition on the White House lawn each

year. In case you plan to be around in the year 2000, Easter will be on April 23.

Education (handwritten)

This week is was brought home to me, just how little we as parents know what our

children do about their education. You send them to school, give them the tools, books,

and things they need to learn. They are even provided with some of the best teachers in

the country, but they refuse to take an interest. Our country, with the compulsive

education system, rates high in the world as a non-illiterate nation, but do some of our

children care? NO. Why is it, that some children in a family can go to school and make

an honest effort and learn? They make good grades and have fun while learning at the

same time, while others who can do the work, do not. They spend their time at

foolishness and day dreaming at the expense of the whole class, and sometimes the

school. It only take one bad apple to spoil the whole barrel if it not taken care of

Threats of failure, extra attention, and even bribes do not even make a dent in the nature

of the “bad apple”. There must be a weak spot or an Achilles heel to this one bad student

but no one has been able to find it as yet. If children only thought how much an
