What a wonderful surprise to read the article about Mrs. Davis, the longtime Waynedale kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Davis' picture looked just as I remembered her almost 40 years ago.

I was in Mrs. Davis' kindergarten class of 1966-67 at the old Waynedale School on Elzey Street. I remember her as a caring and compassionate teacher whose valuable lessons will live with me forever.

It was rumored that at Fort Wayne International Airport this week, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a setsquare, a slide rule and a calculator.

It is believed that the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra terrorist cult. He is being charged with carrying 'weapons of math instruction'. "Al-Gebra is a very fearsome cult, indeed," the arresting officer said. "They desire average...

REFLECTIONS ON SABBATH REST

Years ago, back in the early 1960's there were laws called "blue laws." Those of us who are old enough to remember those days, recall that because these laws were in place, places of business were not open on Sundays.

Looking back on those days in the early 1960's and before probably seems like "ancient history" to some, especially to those who never lived in a time when there was an "official" Sabbath, enforced by law.

Why is a Sabbath important? Well, from a...
