According to Ashley Thomas, Secretary for the Bi-County Junior Livestock Show, these participants are passing on a spirit of generosity and community concern that has been shown to them by the support of a wonderful community. “Our community supporters have set a great example for our kids, and I really think these kids are responding to the generosity that has been bestowed on them and passing it down,” said Thomas.

Folding a Tent

By JUDI WIEGMAN

For the fourth time in four months we have received word that a family member has passed away and we must attend another funeral.  Funerals can be sad, morbid experiences. However, at funerals for Christians, we have chosen to refer to them as celebrations of the person’s life lived on this earth and their promotion to heaven. That takes the “sting” out of death!

How dry I am, er was!

By JUDI WIEGMAN

It is amazing how many phrases contain the word “dry” there are. We hear people say, “Why, he ain’t dry behind the ears.” We know what it means to leave someone “high and dry.”  We love to report a good play where there wasn’t “a dry eye in the room.”  A person can become so bored that they describe the situation as “sitting around watching the paint dry.”  A leach can “bleed someone dry” while a snitch can “hang someone out to dry.” Remember the old commercial with the row of babies singing, “How dry I am, how dry I am.”  (I won’t EVEN tell you how long ago that was!)

Since February 2 is my Birthday, I’m elected (and hopefully somewhat qualified) to comment on this very important date.
The real ground hog (which is actually a wood chuck) goes into a deep semi-dead slumber for the entire winter, never even waking up to eat or move or anything.
