Your sweet smile has gone forever, your face we cannot touch. Thank God for the me- mories of the one we loved so much. God watched you as you suf- fered. He did what he thought was best. He put his arms around you and said, "Come and Rest". It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You live with us in memory still, not just today, but al- ways will. This we know is true, you can never return to us, "but we can go to you".

Look, lis- ten, ask, respond in the name of Jesus. He makes the day new. He helps us to do what we never dreamed of doing, and He often uses what we give to work a miracle. Prayer: Our Father, help us to seek newness of life every day, believing that through You we can turn dull days into joy- ous ones. In Christ's name. Amen.

I- l-4tc II Hello Friends & Citizens Something a little funny for last week's edition- it wasn't planned, that way by me, but, I missed the press time deadline which was a day early because of Christmas. This fact, alone, will be funny to some. Back to basics. The cover-up of truth in America and the world in economics, health, law ethics, etc. Most of the autho- rities and news media show and tell one side of the picture or at least withhold basic information when it is needed by the pub- lic. Yes, they are smart when it is opportune and/or convenient. Otherwise, they are preaching and practicing a double standard with their fellowman. Yes, they have the knowledge and equip- ment to control or drastically change for the better, much of the problems of the world. A book the size of "the family Sears catelogue" wouldn't cover the cover-up that man is promoting today and in the picture for tomorrow. And again, like the advertising, promoting and push- ing of tobacco, alcohol, gambling, etc., which causes so much misery, confusion and death in the world. Are Americans pushing advertising and exporting the above? They are in America. Is that forbidden or classified informa- tion? And on and on we go. Look up and/or the other way and you won't see it. Yes, I could prove what 1 write in an open forum. But to get a chance is just wishful thinking. The authorities and news media play down and dodge the issue with rhetoric or a multitude of words. Dan McLeod P. O. Box 103 Lockhart, Alabama P.S. I get no answers, so maybe this doesn't circulate.
