Look In and Out We all walk with worry or anxiety. All of us have dealt with these struggles at one time or another.  Talking to someone can help relieve the pressure that naturally builds.  Not talking or feeling you have no one with which to speak only increases our feelings of anxiety.  We worry about relationships with people, work, and appearance, our perception that no one cares, or even everything.  The risk is our walking into despair and this

may lead us to act impulsively with dangerous outcomes. During these moments in our lives we forget two vital ingredients.  There are people who love us and are willing to help carry our load if we let them, “Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.”  Too often we isolate ourselves and do not let others in.  We want to carry our burden alone.  How selfish.  It is so much easier to live through a difficult experience if we have someone

to share it with, Iron sharpens iron; so one man (generic) sharpens another.” Anxiety, stress, and worry are natural to life.  We also worry because of conditioning.  We are raised in a home or community that teaches impulsive worrying.  A person may have a weak ego; they have a low perception of self.  They see everyone through their selfabased eyes, (Col. 2:18).  Others, may have a super ego in a over sensitive

conscience. They feel guilty all the time.  Some, their id is too strong and controlled by fleshly desires.  Our lives need balance.  Anxiety comes from circumstances and how we choose to react to them.   Courage to accept the things we cannot change and wisdom to know the difference.  Pray to God who will help when we need to accept reality we cannot change.  Serve others, look outside ourselves, and trust in God.  This is Sunrise.

H. Campbell, a Memphis Republican schoolteacher. Fortunately for Mr. Jones, not as many Democrats were dissatisfied with him as they were with President Carter, as Jones received 4,472 votes and 910 voted for Mr. Campbell.

Thursday, November 8, 1990 Stanton Clinic should open Friday The last hurdle in a medical marathon seems about to be vaulted and the longawaited Stanton Community Clinic should open Friday, the clinic’s director Vicki Paris said this

week. The medical clinic in Stanton has been closed since early 1989 when it is second operator, Methodist Hospital of Somerville, d i s c o n t i n u e d operation. The clinic opened in 1979 as a federally funded rural health clinic. Though paperwork delays as well as funding and contractual hold-ups have delayed the rural health clinic’s reopening for more than five months, Paris said a Medicare survey visit Thursday should be the last obstacle before the Vanderbilt University-run clinic can open its doors.

United Way tops goal, giving still climbing Haywood County’s second United Way campaign reached over the top of its $135,000 goal this week, campaign workers announced Tuesday. The preliminary estimate of $143,231.04 includes reports from some companies whose campaigns are incomplete. “With the level of funding that Haywood County is providing this year,” Campaign Chairman Christy Smith said, “it is clear that our agencies will be able to provide even more services for

local people.” Not all companies have reported totals yet in the campaign, which is scheduled to end November 12. “When the campaign concludes, we hope to have over $160,000 to fund the designated agencies,” Smith said. The campaign has had some ups and downs this year, Smith said, following last year ’s triumphant tripling of its firstyear effort. “We still feel we’ve failed to get the message to a lot of Haywood Countians that United Way gives them a great opportunity to help their neighbors… maybe even their own families some day.”

Cannon receives mount Haywood County’s 127-year-old Union Cannon, a gift from Fort Pillow following the Civil War, was mounted on its new 1,400-pound marine aluminum carriage last week. The carriage, an exact replica of the wooden carriages used during the war, was made by Paulson Brothers of Clear Lake, Wisconsin, and was shipped to Brownsville courtesy of Haywood Company. The bronze cannon, one of 1,189 cast in 1863 by the Revere

Copper Company, weighs 1,240 pounds. Ironically, or appropriately, the big gun rests at the base of the statue honoring Confederate soldiers who died in “the war between brothers.”

Thursday, November 9, 2000 Young voters cast ballots What better way to learn about the responsibility of voting and the election process than to “cast a ballot” in elementary school? These young voters, born since President Bill Clinton was elected eight years ago, went to the polls Tuesday at Haywood Elementary to make their selection for president Young Democrats outnumber the Republicans with 322 voting for Al Gore and 265 voting for Bush.

Hatchie Refuge developing 15-year-plan A future plan for “conserving, protecting and enhancing” Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge south of Brownsville captured the attention of a crowd Monday night who came to hear about a new focus for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
