(Ephesians 4:32) Being kind. How many times in a day do we lose our temper, snap at those we love, ignore those we work with, go to school with, and interact with each day? Sometimes, we are so wrapped up in our life, our problems, AND what we are trying to get done, we simply tune out others. You see, being kind requires us to care for others. It requires us to concentrate on their needs. It forces us to look away from ourselves and look at others.

DOROTHY BURDETTE BALLET DANCER AND ACTRESS

 

Many times you find a person living out their life in semi-seclusion that had very famous careers. Thus is Dorothy Burdette, a ballet dancer and actress. She is quick to supply the information that she was a ballet dancer not a ballerina. A ballerina is a very special dancer (international) with maybe only five that qualify. She with a smile admits that as an actress she lied about her age. If a director wanted a 24 year old she was that and if...

Oooooooohhhh I have to sort of re-tell you something that I told you sometime back when I told you what I'm going to tell you now but then it's not the same thing that I told you then; it's an update.

To the Editor,

The Four Chaplains of World War II are remembered in February because their ship sank off the coast of Greenland on February 3, 1943. American Legion Post 296 will honor them with a short interfaith ceremony on Tuesday, February 19.

These four U.S. Army Chaplains were on the Dorchester, Troop ship carrying 900 soldiers. When the ship was struck by a torpedo, the four chaplains passed out life jackets until all were gone. Then they took off their own precious jackets, gave...

Oooooohhhhh I just have to tell you where Wayne and I stopped to eat on our way back home two weeks ago. We were out of state visiting Wayne's relatives down Columbus way recently. Since we didn't get to visit any restaurants here in our fair town of Waynedale, Indiana, USA, I'll tell you about the neatest eating place we found. My cute little tubby hubby and I ran across a restaurant over in Ohio that we fell in love with. I understand that it is one of a chain that is all over most of the...
