  • Teens donate food to Pantry

    To the editor:

    I would like our community to know, if you already didn’t know, what a great group of teens we have in our little city.

    On Wednesday, Oct. 28, several youth groups from our local and rural churches banded together to collect food for our local Food Pantry. This was called ‘SuperHero’ and was their way of celebrating trick-or-treat. A great amount of food was collected and the Food Pantry wants them to know how much it was appreciated.

  • ‘Work is a blessing, a gift from God’

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, “Cinderella-style.”

    After that, I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.

    When I finally sat down with my can of diet ginger ale, it hit me how good it felt to work with my whole body.

    The scrubbing motion stretched my tight back and polishing the stainless steel until I could see my reflection made me smile.
