    “I was about 14 years old, and we lived in the country.  My dad said I had to do my chores before I could drive that old Oldsmobile we had around the field on Sunday after church.  I was in my Sunday best.  My dad told me to burn the garbage…I kind of took some shortcuts,” said Valley Christian Center’s pastor, James Leonard, addressing the Kingsland High School Class of 2015 during the class’s baccalaureate service held last Wednesday, May 27, in the Kingsland High School gymnasium.

     The #5 seeded Fillmore Central/Lanesboro Falcon baseball team beat top-seeded Chatfield, 4-2 to advance to the finals of the sub-section, then lost to Lewiston-Altura, 4-2, in the championship game, and came back to beat Chatfield again, 3-0.

  • In a very old comic strip, Snoopy was playing tennis with an unseen partner. They hit back and forth and it is apparent that Snoopy was working very hard to keep up. Finally, he is watching the ball come towards him, and he thinks, “I hope it goes out, I hope it goes out.” It does. The last frame was him facing forward with a big smile and satisfied look on his face: “I hoped it out.”

  • During a conversation with a local woman who is interested in getting young people to vote and become more involved in the political process, a comment she made stunned me for a moment. She said that the parents of young people today have never seen effective government in action.
