E. Sue Doolin 1917 - 2010 A funeral mass was held Tuesday, December 28, at St. Augustine Catholic Church for Mrs. Sue Doolin who passed away December 24th at St. Joseph’s Home in Springfield. She is survived by one son, Greg Doolin, of Chicago, five grandchildren, eleven greatgrandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Tim, three children; Dr. Sue Ann Doolin, Timothy Doolin Jr., and James Doolin. Also preceding her in death was her brother James Reid, and three sisters, Margaret Reid, Helen Hoornbeck, and Mary K. Gardner. Mrs. Doolin taught for over thirty years in country schools in both Cass and Menard counties, and also in Ashland. In Ashland, she served as the speech and drama coach. Her speech teams won numerous district, regional, sectional, and state titles. Mrs. Doolin was a substitute teacher for several years in Ashland.
FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH HOMECOMING The First Baptist Church of Ashland was founded 125 years ago. The original church cost $1,722 to construct. The current church was built in 1905, at a cost of $9,200--including furnishings. The Christian Education building was added in 1994, costing $275,000. The tornado of April 1999, nearly demolished the addition, but it has been rebuilt and is in use not only by the church, but many area groups and family gatherings as well. A "Homecoming" celebration is being planned, and everyone is invited to attend. The Kick-off is planned for Sunday, January 23, with "The Chosen Ones," an area gospel group singing at both the 10:30 a.m. service and a concert at 2 p.m. Rev. Wayne Brackett, pastor from 19571961 plans to attend that day,as do Rev. David and Margie Holland, who has served as interm pastor two different times. A potluck will be enjoyed at noon. On Saturday, January 29, the gospel groups from the Athens area, whom many of you have enjoyed in the past at the annual fish fry, will bring us their music in the late afternoon. A Bar-B-Q dinner will be served that evening, as others from the area, as well as visitors, add their songs to the festivities. Former pastor, Ken and Millie Dunn will be here for the week-end. We are hoping to convince him to blend his voice with others from our church. The Hollands will be here, as well as Rev. Lucas Dunn, Ken & Millie's son, who is a pastor in the Quad Cities area, and Rev. Dustin Fulton, who received his early Bible training in our church. Final plans will be made soon. Call the church office, check with a member, or watch for fliers in the area to learn the details. Come join the fun as we celebrate our heritage.

The State Superintendent of Education has approved the petition to form a consolidated district between A-C Central and Virginia school districts. The approval of the petition will allow the submission of the proposition at the regular scheduled election on April 5, 2011. The formalities have been completed and the consolidation referendum will be on the April ballot!!! Also on the April ballot will be candidates for the proposed consolidated school board (7 seats) along with candidates for the Virginia school board (6 seats open) and the A-C Central school board (4 seats open). This will be a bit confusing for voters as candidates may be running for both the proposed consolidated school board and their respective school boards. The COT and the CARE Group plan on educating the public about this and also providing sample ballots at the public meetings. School board candidates have submitted their petitions. There are 13 candidates running for 7 open seats on the proposed consolidated school board ballot. The 6 Virginia candidates are Terry Bell, Kara Lynch, Lennie Moore, Amy Parlier, Thad Walker and Matt Werner. The 7 A -C Central candidates are Jennifer Allen, Scot Atwood, Scott Boston, Jeremy Garner, Keith Gregory, Todd Jokisch and Karen Arthalony Walle. There are 5 candidates vying for the 6 open seats on the Virginia school board. Four of the candidates are current board members - Terry Bell, Gary Hish, Kara Lynch and Matt Werner; Amy Parlier is running for the first time. The A-C board has 4 open seats and 5 candidates running for school board. Three of the candidates are current board members - Scot Atwood, Scott Boston and Jeremy Garner; Keith Gregory and Karen Arthalony Walle are running as first time school board candidates.

January 2011 Watching and Waiting Friends, This article is reproduced from a book I’ve been reading called “100 Favorite Bible Verses”. I hope you find it as encouraging as I did. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the Earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. James 5: 7-8 God’s timing is always perfect. He parted the Red Sea when his people needed it most – when they were trapped between the rushing waters and an approaching army. God allowed the water to flow again, but only after Moses and the Israelites had made it safely across. God provided what the people needed at the precise moment that it would make the greatest difference. From a human vantage point, it isn’t always easy to recognize that opportune moment. Waiting for God’s answer, when your own internal timer has already gone off, can make you feel as if God isn’t listening or he simply doesn’t care. When you find yourself in that situation, take a lesson from this important verse in James and put yourself in a farmer’s shoes. You can’t rush a perfect harvest or an answer to prayer. As a farmer waits for the fruit of his labor, he doesn’t just sit around complaining about how long the growing season is. He continues to work. He trusts God, and his patience grows right along with his fruit. James provides a valuable tip for those who wait. He advises you to establish your heart, which means to “to firmly plant your life and expectations in the fertile soil of God’s truth.” There is a bountiful harvest as certain as the fulfillment of God’s promises: the Lord will return; the hard times you face will end; and God will answer your prayers when the time is right. The image of a patient farmer provides an encouraging visual picture for prayer. Picture every prayer as a seed planted in God’s will. As you wait, picture them ripening, trusting in God’s perfect harvest time. Have a great January! See you in February! What Would Jesus Do? WWJD - B.G. James 1:3,4 Hebrews 6:12 Romans 15: 4,5
Ecclesiastes 7: 8,9 Psalm 40:1
The picture to the left shows a portion of the “baskets” that were put together by the churches of the Ashland community for Thanksgiving. This has been an ongoing project for a long time, and is just as important today as when it first was started. Our thanks to all who donated money and time to put it all together and most importantly thanks to those willing to receive a helping hand - you make the effort so rewarding. -pdh

God’s Creation! God created the Heavens and Earth - all you see, all you don't see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss. God spoke: "Light!" And light appeared. God saw that light was good and separated light from dark. God named the light Day, he named the dark Night. It was evening, it was morning - Day One. God spoke: "Sky! In the middle of the waters; separate water from water!" God made sky. He separated the water under sky from the water above sky. And there it was: he named sky the Heavens; It was evening, it was morning - Day Two.
Then God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good. It was evening, it was morning - Day Three And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. It was evening it was morning – Day Four.

CARE GROUP MEMBERSHIP DRIVE To fund support of the upcoming consolidation referendum in April, the CARE Group is holding a membership drive. In support of the Committee of Tenâ€™s goal of passing the consolidation referendum between A-C Central and Virginia School Districts, the funds collected will go toward promotion materials such as fliers, posters, yard signs and postage costs. We will be offering 2-year memberships to the CARE Group for individuals, for a family or business. The CARE Group is a strong supporter of the consolidation referendum between our school districts. We hope you agree that passage of the referendum in April will provide the foundation to create an outstanding school district in which to educate our children of eastern Cass County. The CARE Group thanks you for your continued support.
