THE SNEEZE

Details

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-three students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt.

Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and moms freely brushed away tears.

This class would not pray during the commencements ——- not by choice but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

Dear Cousin,

 

The Mayapples have popped their umbrellas completely open to shelter from the surging April rains that keep coming down. The abundant rainfall is bringing out the leaves on the trees more every day, so that Pilot Knob is beginning to look lush and green once more. A brisk wind whips the long branches of the weeping willow to and fro today, and the purple blossoms of the lilac wave in the breeze. Their fragrant scent is wafted across the yard, telling of springtime and warm...

SCOUTING SMOKE SIGNALS

Details Boy Scout Troup 38 taking a rest after hosting a hike for Cub Scout Pack 3038’s Webelos Scouts last February. The Webelos Scouts needed the hike to complete requirements for the Arrow Of Light Award.

By Ray McCune

 

I want to thank Anthony Wayne Area Council and everyone responsible for presenting me with the Council Patch. I love scouting but on a lower level than a lot of people. I love to teach boys, that have never held a pocketknife, how to whittle.

MORNING BLESSINGS

 

When you awake in the morning, before putting coffee, toast, or anything into your body, get a tall glass of water. Go outside, face the East, and say: 

"I'm open and receptive to see and accept my illumination with you, God. I will look on the bright side of life for the many blessings that surround me, the beauty of spring flowers, songbirds, and as I stand here in the East, I lift up this water for your blessing. And as I drink some, let me feel the communion of...

THE LIFE OF RILEY

 

Dear Readers,

Well, spring has sprung in Louisville and has not escaped the notice of all the children. Bikes racing by, basketballs being dribbled and shot at any kind of apparatus that would serve as a hoop, and the skate boarders risking their very lives. Of course, that's what they said about us when we were kids. Only then, it was bikes and roller skates——the REAL kind with four wheels on each skate that attached to your shoe and a skate key to tighten it up to your...

ROCKET PARK “LIFT OFF”

Details Pleasant Center’s Pride and Joy - Rocket Park Opens - Go Rockets!

They did it! What started out as merely an idea only a year ago is now a reality. Thanks to the hard work, Pleasant Center Elementary PTA and many volunteers, they now are the proud owners of Phase I of a new playground, Rocket Park. This is the first time in over 25 years that the playground has been updated.

The PTA decided that it would be a good idea to first paint the existing equipment to give it a fresh look. A couple of workdays, and a little elbow grease and a lot of red, white...
