Work but lots of fun
I asked sports crew members Claude Vinson, Lawrence White and Ronnie Day, “What are we going to do? Basketball season is over. No more road trips?”
The answer is simple. Move on to baseball, softball, track and whatever else.
Close to Nowhere
“Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder first identified ten centuries ago by Avicenna, in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter, repeatedly, year after year. The US National Library of Medicine notes that “some people experience a serious mood change when the seasons change. They may sleep too much, have little energy, and crave sweets and starchy foods. They may also feel depressed. Though symptoms can be severe, they usually clear up.”
The Preacher’s Corner
Being a minister is a 24/7 calling
In the constitution of my denomination are six things called “the great ends of the church.” Your denomination probably has some similar list. Ours are:
1. The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind. 2. The shelter, nurture and spiritual fellowship of the children of God. 3. The maintenance of divine worship. 4. The preservation of the truth. 5. The promotion of social righteousness. 6. The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.
Diatribe against television commercials
I hardly know how to begin. I am so deeply and snarlingly irritated with television and the excessive noise that accompanies every news segment that I could chew nails. CNN is my target presently as every tiny bit of news is preceded by loud drumbeats, deafening music of some kind, these little tinkling bells that accompany every soundbite and just general noise!
Mississippi is at the top of the spiritualistic list
We Mississippians hear a lot of negative news about being at the bottom of the materialistic lists. We should take pride in being at the top of the spiritualistic lists.
Mississippi, according to a recent Gallup poll, is the most religious state in the nation. Eighty-five percent of Mississippi answered yes to the question, “Is religion an important part of your daily life?”
Letter To The Editor
I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to each and every first responder who answered the fire call to our residence Monday, March 9. I, Louise Looney, and my family thank you so much for your kindness and professional manner.
To receive help in an emergency as quickly as you all arrived here is real peace of mind.
To all of you, Watson, Byhalia and Victoria, we appreciate and thank you!
