If a season goes along the same lines as a first match, then this could be a special volleyball season at North Central.
In 2005 I was asked to write the history book for my American Legion Post 17 located in Camden. Among the many bits of facts I discovered and wrote into the document was the huge amount of compensation benefits our VA Service Officer and his assistant brought into my home county. At that time the annual amount was a mere $18,375,000 that year. Those benefits are tax exempt. That means every penny/dollar is turned around by the veteran who benefited from the award so they can spend the entire amount back into our local economy for goods ...
On June 15, God called one of his "special angels" home. Barbara was a special needs person. To me she was just a special person. When Barbara was born, she wasn't given much chance to live, but because of God's grace, her parents' and family's love and the care of her doctors, she lived a good and long life.

Don't take this personally, but if you don't like chocolate, you're a little bit weird.
At last there's a hint of hope from Washington -- a tiny but palpable sign that just maybe, lawmakers are getting the message that people are weary of the logjam which prevents decent legislation from being passed. Democratic and Republican members of the Joint Select Committee On Deficit Reduction have agreed to name a longtime Senate staffer to assume the job of running the panel. The man they've chosen is Mark Prater, chief counsel for Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee. We're glad to see him named not because he's a member of the GOP but because ...

WASHINGTON -- If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts -- the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.
I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.
We've always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.
Trees are fascinating biological wonders. From ancient bristle cone pines and towering redwoods out west to our widely diverse Southern forests, the life cycle of a tree provides us with year-round interest. One of the most intriguing and beautiful results of a tree's life cycle is autumn color.
