Sadako; From the East!

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

I thought it would be the same as always; just a regular Wednesday night prayer service with the same eight gathering to share a time from the Word of God and pray for the needs of our families, church, and nation.  But, God had a different plan.

This year’s wicked weather caused fewer pumpkins used for fall festivities to grow in our area.  Hot, dry weather slowed pumpkin production, so many farmers have no choice but to increase the costs of the fruit to cover their losses.

Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of size, gender, or strength, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. Many people do not want to become involved and in turn have guilt about their silence when a fatal injury occurs. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Emotional abuse is often minimized, yet it can leave deep and lasting scars not only on the intended victim, but also on other members of the household.

Coon Memorial board members agreed Thursday evening to move forward on a proposal to shut down the west wing of Coon Memorial Nursing Home, after upgrades are complete on the east wing. “Mainly it’s just because we are so low in the census, we’ll do what we have to do until it comes back up,” explained hospital administrator Leroy Schaffner.

The Golden Wolves finally met their match as they faced a big, fast and talented Seminole squad in Plainview.  Dalhart moved the ball to the 24, 20, and 36 yard lines in the first half, but could not get any points on the board.  The Indians finally had their starting quarterback return after an injury earlier in the season, and the passing game for Seminole was very effective as they picked on the Dalhart defense all night.

Unfortunately, teasing is often part of growing up.  Almost every child experiences it at some point in their life. But, it isn’t always as harmless as it seems. Words can cause pain. Teasing becomes bullying when it is repetitive, or when there is a conscious intent to hurt another person.

Knit Together

By REV. JUDI WIEGMAN

Just two small words, “knit together,” tucked away in the book of Psalms, Chapter 139. Yet, they are powerful and mighty.  
A friend told me a story about her mom knitting baby blankets to give as gifts to her friends and family members when a new baby was expected. She would get out her books, decide on the pattern; sometimes it would have “bumps” or zigzags and sometimes it would be just plain. Next she carefully chose the size of needles to use for the project.

Our youngest citizens are the ones who are most at risk for unsafe situations. Of course, parents want to believe their precious wee ones are in safe hands while they work or attend school. We entrust our most valuable assets to other people, and some of these people we may not know personally.

On a night where Lubbock Cooper dominated the field position, the Golden Wolves battled back, never taking the lead until 23 seconds were left in the game, to win the game 20-14 over the Lubbock Cooper Pirates.  The winning drive started after a Cooper fumble at their 25 yard line, with 2:43 left in the game.  Dominic Baca, who scored the winning touchdown, got the drive started with a 13 yard carry to the 49.  Then Davonte Burks, who rushed for 159 yards, 98 of which came in the fourth quarter, had a 41 yard burst up the middle to the one yard line.  Baca then dove over from the one to give Dalhart its fifth victory in a row.  The Wolves are now 5-0 for the second year in a row.  Next week’s game will be Thursday night against Seminole in Plainview, Texas.
