Dear Editor,

(Attn: Senator David Long)

I am upset that the State cannot reform a budget in a time of economic turmoil. Every educated human being in the world knows that if you lower taxes across the board enough, that will stimulate the economy. If you raise taxes then you will receive slow growth... How can you totally miss a proven plan? How can a budget be this far in the hole one year after a surplus.

Who cares if you lowered property taxes or trashed the inventory tax? Not...

Ooooooooohhh I have to tell you about a cute little place that my little Tubby Hubby and I went to recently. It's called the Golden Gate Chinese Restaurant and it's located off of I-469 at 1326 Minnich Road in New Haven in a little shopping center. We discovered it by mistake.

We had been to "MAY-NARDS" (that's the way they pronounce it) and got off at the wrong exit looking for a place to eat. I can't remember which restaurant we were looking for but we were so hungry that we decided to...

Recognizing His Voice

 

There are times in our lives when we have to ask the Lord to give us direction and guidance. Sometimes our situations are extremely critical and time sensitive and sometimes they are not. But one thing we want to be certain of is this: We want to know that we are hearing God correctly.

THERE'S A PIECE OF HISTORY IN YOUR POCKET

 

Did you ever stop and look at a 1-dollar bill? It's not just a piece of paper to exchange for something of equal value; it's a whole history book setting there in your wallet. Take a 1-dollar bill out and look at it while you read this. The bill you're looking at first came off the presses in 1957 in its present design. It is made, not from paper, but is in fact a cotton and linen blend with red and blue minute silk fibers running through it....

Ooooooooohhh I just have to tell you of the cute little old place that Wayne and I went to. We had coupons for Blimpie Subs and Salad so we went to the one at ParkWest Shopping Center. The coupon said that if you buy one sub you get one free if it costs the same or less than the first one. I gather the cheap one is the free one.

Wayne ordered a 'wrap' instead of a sub. It seemed to be a large thick tortilla wrapped around some kind of meat that was hot and spicy with lots of cold...
