Why Easter chicks make for loud presents By Terry Turner‌

Last month we all celebrated another Easter. Today Easter has a much deeper and spiritual meaning for me but back when I was a kid it was different. Back then, even though our whole family got dressed in our best clothes and went to church, Easter also meant presents for us kids, like stuffed bunnies, Easter eggs and candy. But one Easter my brother and I each got an unusual present. We each got a pastel dyed Easter chick. And these were not made of candy. They were the real thing. Back then, those colorful baby chickens were everywhere. They were in hardware stores, variety stores

and grocery stores. They were so cute and cuddly who could resist picking up a few for the kids. Our mother couldn’t resist. So that Easter morning my brother and I were each presented with a pastel chick. We were thrilled. We kept them in a small box and faithfully gave them food and water and, of course, cleaned the box when needed, which was quite often. It wasn’t long before that small box could no longer contain the rapidly growing chickens. My brother and I went to work constructing a suitable cage for our now half-grown chickens. We found some appropriately named chicken wire and constructed a cage against

the house in the backyard. The new home for our chickens was next to our driveway and not far from our neighbor’s house. That location was to prove to be disastrous for our new pets. We continued to feed and care for the two birds and they continued to grow. Then it happened. One morning I woke to a strange and totally unfamiliar sound. It was the sound of a rooster crowing. That soon changed to an early morning duet between the two birds crowing at the top of their rooster lungs. My brother and I didn’t mind the predawn crooning by our beloved pets and the constant clucking, but our neighbor didn’t

feel the same. One day after school when we were caring for the now very large roosters, our neighbor, a rather gruff old man, came over and let us know in no uncertain terms that he did not like being awakened by our birds. We tried to explain we really didn’t have any control over their crowing and clucking but he wasn’t satisfied. He gave us an ultimatum that went something like, “Either get rid of those birds ... or else!” We told our mother about our encounter with the cranky neighbor but being a former farm girl, she stood her ground. “The chickens stay,” she countered. All seemed to be going well with no more encounters with the

neighbor. Then one day I woke to silence. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong at first then I realized there was no crowing. I woke my brother and we ran outside. The cage was empty! Our adored birds were gone. We split up and scoured the neighborhood. We searched every yard and alley. I even got my buddies Mike and Russell to help but those chickens were no where to be found. Later that afternoon as we sat on the back steps wondering what had happened to our pet roosters, we both noticed a distinct odor. At first I couldn’t decide what it was. I looked at my brother and he looked at me. We both came to the

same realization at the same time. We looked at each other and said in unison, “Fried chicken!” And it was coming from our neighbor’s house. Now we never could actually prove our neighbor rustled our chickens and had them for dinner but the circumstantial evidence was very strong. Later that day my brother and I took down the wire and cleaned up the area that once served as a cage for our beloved birds. My advice to anyone thinking of getting their kids some of those cute little chicks: don’t. That is, unless you can get your neighbor to invite you over for dinner.

Demand for chaplain services is increasing

If you have glaucoma and are considering cataract surgery, you may be eligible to participate in the COMPASS Clinical Study. The study is evaluating an investigational treatment designed to reduce pressure buildup inside the eye, which may help reduce or eliminate the need for glaucoma medications.

By SUSAN ERLER Times of Northwest Indiana

MUNSTER, Ind. | In 29 years as a Gary, Ind., police officer, Cpl. Gabrielle King has seen duty in nearly every division in the department, from patrol to sex crimes. King, who also is the Gary Police Department spokeswoman, recently added a new duty — police chaplain. Her latest role with the department is an extension of something the veteran officer already was doing as an ordained minister since 2012, and before that in answer to what she said has been a lifelong calling. “I’m a minister,” King said. “Part of that ministry is helping others. Now my job is to minster to the needs of the officers. Sometimes they just need somebody to listen.” Police officers often are unjustly thought of as insensitive, uncaring or detached, said King, whose duties as chaplain can also mean ministering to crime victims and their families. “I bring to the table sensitivity and compassion,” she said. For Chaplain William McClure, the workplace is a factory floor and not a police station, but the needs of the workers are equally compelling. Issues involving family, marriage and

parenting, along with stress on the job, are among top concerns for workers he deals with, said McClure, a chaplain with corporate chaplain provider Workplace Chaplains. “We’re feet on the floor, ears to the ground” said McClure, whose current duties take him as often as three times a week to the Hammond, Ind., location of PacMoore, a contract manufacturing company. The ministry can take the form of listening to workplace issues, such as getting along with colleagues or with management. Chaplains are in demand more and more, said Valerie Storms, a chaplain at H. Lee Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa, Fla., and president of the 4,200-member Association of Professional Chaplains. “The need is greater,” in an increasingly

complex world, Storms said. Nonstop news of war and unrest, along with shifting lifestyles contribute to the need for a chaplain. Families are less centered in a hometown over generations. “We don’t have those family supports we used to have. Grandma doesn’t live around the corner any more,” Storms said. Mark Wilkins, senior pastor with First United Methodist Church in Crown Point, Ind., is chaplain to the Crown Point Police Department. “You’re there for that person in that moment. Some folks may want to pray, others may not,” Wilkins said. As a police chaplain, “in a crisis situation more often than not you try to be there for that person and give them your full attention, so the officers can do their job,” Wilkins said.

The Dominion Post‌

CORE, W.Va. | Marie Jones was a minute or so into the history of the handmade quilt she was showing a visitor when her daughter, Lois Dittman, made a discovery. “Right there,” Lois said, jamming her finger into a purple square of fabric with a flower design in the middle. “That’s from the curtains in my room. I knew it looked familiar.” If Lois had looked keenly enough through the mountain of quilts on the living room couch, she probably would have recognized other needle-and-thread artifacts. Fabric from an old Easter dress, maybe. Or another pattern Marie made for a cloth purse a little girl had to have for dress-up day at school. Marie, 92, is softspoken and smiles easily, but don’t let her fool you. She was a sewing machine commando, wielding that Singer like a submachine gun as she made dresses and outfits for her and her six kids. “Back then, you did what you had to do to get by,” Marie said. “You had to be resourceful.” If curtains or clothes were needed, she made them. She hardly ever used sewing patterns, she said. Her house is the one she was born in, grew

up in and raised a family in. “I go back seven generations,” she said. “In this living room.” She went back 75 years with her late husband, Robert. Robert, who drove a school bus and worked the 60 or so acres of farm that’s home to the house Marie was born in, battled a heart condition off and on, but he always recovered. He died in 2012. “When he went to the hospital that last time, I never dreamed he wouldn’t be coming home,” Marie said. “I still haven’t been to his grave. I don’t know if I can go.” Grandkids and great grandkids got her into the quilting business. It was 1991, and Marie was hobbled with a broken foot. There were no

more outfits or curtains to sew, so she found a new canvas for her needle-and-thread artistry. Quilting. That first Christmas, every Jones kid got one. Macular degeneration eventually stopped Jones’ quilt-making. The vision-robbing disease narrowed her eyesight to the point where she could no longer do intricate needlework. But the tradition continues. Under the tree this past Christmas was a quilt with Marie’s name on it. Granddaughter Ashley, who is 9, made it (with some help) and added an embroidered inscription: “To Grandma Marie from Ashley Marie.” “There’s my quilter,” Marie said, smiling at a new generational thread.

Fit for The Gipper 100-acre library honors Reagan legacy

By Terry Turner‌

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. | Sitting high atop a hill on a 100-acre site offering a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains, valleys and Pacific Ocean is the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. The museum, located 45 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, tells the story of Reagan’s life journey from his humble Midwestern beginnings to becoming president of the United States. Ronald Wilson Reagan was born Feb. 6, 1911 in the small town of Tampico, Ill. His father, John Edward “Jack” Reagan, nicknamed him “Dutch” because as

a baby his father said he resembled “a fat little Dutchman.” The name stuck with him throughout his life. The young Reagan lived in several towns in Illinois, following his father to several jobs, until they settled in Dixon in 1920, where Jack opened a shoe store. While in high school, Reagan’s mother encouraged his interest in acting and he performed in several school plays. He also worked as a lifeguard during summer vacations. The future president graduated from Dixon High School, where he was a star athlete and student body president, in 1928. Reagan enrolled in Eureka

College in Illinois on an athletic scholarship and majored in economics and sociology. While in college, he played football, participated in track, captained the swim team and served as student council president. Reagan continued his interest in acting in several school productions. He graduated from Eureka College with a bachelor’s degree in economics. His first job after college was as an announcer with WOC Radio in Davenport, Iowa. That job led to the start of a film career for the young Reagan. In 1937, he was sent to Southern California to cover spring training for the Chicago Cubs. A friend in Los Angeles introduced him to an agent who arranged a screen test. A few days later, a telegram arrived offering Reagan a contract with Warner Bros. Over the next 30 years Reagan appeared in more than 50 films. Among his most famous roles was that of Notre Dame football star George Gipp in the 1940 biopic “Knute Rockne, All American” and as an accident victim in the 1942 film “Kings Row.” In 1940, Reagan married actress Jane Wyman. The couple had a daughter, Maureen, and an adopted son, Michael. They divorced in 1948. But while serving as president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1947 to 1952, Reagan met actress Nancy Davis. The two were married in 1952 and had two children, Patricia and Ronald. In 1954, Reagan began hosting a weekly TV series “The General Electric Theater.” Part of his duties with the show was to travel the country doing public relations for

General Electric. Reagan later said that experience led him to become probusiness and to speak out against excessive government control and wasteful spending, which would become central themes in his future political career. U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., heard Reagan give a speech at the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and was so impressed with his ability to capture an audience he asked Reagan to be his California manager for Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign. Reagan was elected governor of California in 1966. He served two terms and decided not to run for a third and left the office in 1975. Then in November 1979 he announced his desire to run for president of the United States. He carried 44 states and was elected president in 1980. He served two terms as president and left office in 1989. Reagan died June 5, 2004. Visitors to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum walk through more than 200,000 square feet of displays in 24 galleries, including Air Force One. The museum features a replica Oval Office and an interactive display to let visitors experience what it is like to give an inaugural address. The Air Force One pavilion houses the plane used by Reagan and six other presidents. Visitors can walk through the “Flying White House” and have their photo taken at the door of the plane. Also on display in the pavilion are the cars that accompanied the president, Secret Service and Air Force One wherever they traveled.

Honoring Those Who Served Comfortable, well-lit, welcoming showrooms; attention to detail and honesty and truthfulness when serving customers has always been the vision of the Luken Memorials business. In addition to designing, fabricating and installing fine quality granite and bronze cemetery memorials, Luken Memorials has been responsible for the design and installation of many Veterans’ Memorials in area communities, including— Siouxland Freedom Park in South Sioux City, Nebraska. Siouxland Freedom Park will include a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veteran’s memorial which is located in Washington, D. C. The South Sioux City memorial will stretch to nearly 250 feet in length and will be constructed by Luken Memorials of the same Raven Black granite as the Washington, D. C. memorial. It will contain the more than 58,000 names of those American soldiers killed in the Viet Nam conflict. Luken Memorials will begin the installation of the granite in early May. The Siouxland Freedom Park wall is scheduled for dedication in late May of 2014. Luken Memorials is a family owned business that established its home base and carving center in Yankton, South Dakota over sixty years ago, and traces its roots in the granite memorial industry to before the turn of the 20th century. Expansion to other areas led to a total of four main stores and two “satellite” stores including the recently opened Onawa Memorials in Onawa, Iowa. Locations and contact information for all six Luken stores can be found at www.lukenmemorials.com.
