Volunteers needed for Union City Boy Scouts meeting
Union City Baptist Church had a total of 60 people for the community soup supper last Saturday night. There were pinto beans, several different kinds of chili and some great desserts. While people were eating, some youths from the church provided a puppet show.
This may seem like the minutes of the last Monday’s Union City Ruritan meeting, but I am pleased to have so much news from local activities.
- Waco Elementary honors Dr. Seuss How many times did you get pinched on Tuesday for not wearing green? How many times did you pinch yourself on Tuesday because you wanted to make sure you weren’t dreaming when the whole day was so spring-like beautiful? Ahhh, the birds chirping, the green finally peeping through the winter-brown ground, buttercups showing off their new spring bonnets and daylight after supper to enjoy a little porch time — it is getting here!

- D-fend Against Colds Move over vitamin C. It’s vitamin D that seems to provide the strongest defense against the common cold, according to a recent study. Researchers at the University of Colorado studied 19,000 people about their health habits and took blood samples to determine the frequency of respiratory problems.

The goal of 4-H is to help youth have a sense of belonging, opportunities for mastery, learn independence and lessons in generosity.

I don’t watch much television. There are only a few shows I follow. I’ve come to care about the characters in those programs. They’re like family. So naturally it upsets me when homicidal scriptwriters kill them off. Without provocation — or my permission.
One of my favorite shows is “Monk,” about an obsessive, compulsive detective. Several episodes have featured his upstairs neighbor, Kevin Dorfman. Kevin is riddled with personality quirks. He talks too much — about nothing. He rambles on about all the places he’s ever lived.
- God’s rainbow a sign of an everlasting relationship God’s promise of a rainbow in the clouds indicating a permanent and unbreakable bond between God and the creatures of His world is a strong and assuring promise that lies at the very foundation of Christianity. We are told throughout the scriptures that nothing can separate us from God, not even our own sinfulness. In all of life, there are few feelings, needs and insecurities that are more totally and completely fulfilled than when we have a firm and unquestionable conviction that we are not alone, and are wanted and loved! Amen.
- Fifth Sunday Hymn Sing is just around the corner Hello readers, it’s been a warm Monday our second week in March. Early this morning, as I watched the sun rise, the dew made a scenery patchwork against the outline of our wooden fence and on the fence was a fat Robin with a copper-colored breast that seemed to cover the whole bird. As it cleaned itself from the morning feeding, I felt a sudden peacefulness ... just watching. Taking the time to slow down and watch the simplicity of God’s workings made my day less stressful.
- The hills are alive with spring flowers in bloom Hello everyone. We had such a tragedy last week. The roads can be so wicked. A young man lost his life on a motorcycle. I think sometimes we think if we can avoid getting behind someone before getting into the curves that we can get to town a little quicker, but that doesn’t work. Remember that this is a farming community and you might as well plan to start early because there is always a chance of getting behind farming equipment. It is that time of year to start preparing the ground so use extra caution and don’t be in a rush. Our prayers go out to this family.
