City Council Restores Funding in Three Areas

The state has increased funding to Roanoke by $163,000. This has allowed restoration of recent cuts to the three areas that have taken hits. At the April 26 budget hearing Council members heard from 17 speakers opposing cuts to the Virginia Cooperative Extension Ag r i c u l City Gov’t ture and Natural Resource component. Other speakers asked for restoration of the 25 percent cut to the Arts Commission. In the end they didn’t get full restoration but enough was restored to make the impact negligible. VCE gained back $18,000 of the $19,000 of their cut. A memorandum of understanding will be developed with measures that will include logging calls to the VCE by locality, explained Director of Management and Budget Amelia Merchant.

New School of Nursing Opens in Salem

[Community]

A Big Day Downtown!

After delivering the keynote address to the Roanoke Bar Association for Law Day last week, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli participated in a ribbon cutting at ITT Technical Education Institute’s Breckinridge School of Nursing in Salem. After the ceremony, staff took Cuccinelli and attendees on a tour of the facilities and met with students. The simulated hospital room included patient mannequins in hospital beds hooked to monitoring equipment. Standing beside one of the hospital beds, the life-like demonstration led Cuccinelli to take the patient’s hand, check for a pulse and ask him for his vote. Cuccinelli has announced his plan to run for governor in 2013. Other participants in the cele-

oanokers enjoyed an active day downtown last weekend as the annual Strawberry Festival and Chili Cookoff were held. Light rain showers were present through the early part of the day but that didn’t keep attendees from the smorgasbord of beans and berries. Given the available calories to be consumed walking between the two events located on opposite sides of the Roanoke City Market area was a very good idea. For those wanting to resist the food temptation altogether the annual Mayor’s Bike Ride provided an even healthier option. (See more coverage of all three events on Page 7.)

Roanoke City Farmer’s Market Goes Uptown In June

Downtown Roanoke Inc., which manages the Historic Farmer’s Market for the City of Roanoke, is taking its fruits, vegetables, meats and plants uptown. On Thursday nights in June –and maybe beyond – it will be open for business outside the Kirk Family YMCA, at the corner of 5th and Luck. That will allow greater access to locally produced goods for residents of West Downtown apartments and condos, and others who can’t get to the market during the daytime. YMCA spokesperson Kim Bratic called it “a long overdue partnership” at a news conference last week. If successful, the June pilot project could be continued throughout the summer months. “It’s good that we’re coming together to do this,” added Bratic. DRI President/ CEO Sean Luther has wanted to weave the Farmer’s Market further into the fabric of the city ever since he came from Pittsburgh several years ago. “We really need to better integrate the Market into the community,” said Luther, who also announced the Friends of the Farmer’s Market program, where people can contribute funds directly to efforts designed to promote that cause. Friends supporters can sponsor the market at different levels, receiving items like a special T-shirt, a “Produce of the Seasons” box and tours of local apple farms. Grants from Carilion Clinic ($5000)

are] downtowns across the nation as economic development drivers. Anything we can do to expand its impact is our responsibility as the [market] managers.” Luther said they had been thinking for some time about efforts like the evening market at the YMCA. Most of the current Farmer’s Market vendors are on board with the pilot program, added Luther, who said he “was wowed” by just how ingrained the market was as a local institution when he joined DRI. “This is a great opportunity.” About six vendors currently on the market, including those that offer seafood, baked goods, poultry and meat, will set up shop at the Y. “It’s more than just buying your fruits and vegetables,” noted Luther. With a downtown residential population that Luther said had grown about forty percent since last summer; he sees a market for the pilot program. “The growth has been in the western half of downtown. This is an opportunity to cement the market as part of that emerging, dynamic neighborhood.” Those working out at the YMCA can also take advantage of the Thursday night Farmer’s Market at 5th Street and Luck Avenue.

back $59,000 still leaving it with a four percent deficit but more palatable than the original 25 percent reduction. The Human Service Committee had $86,000 restored which was still five percent short of last year. City Manager Chris Morrill said that all departments squeezed their budgets including his own department. Real estate taxes are down as a result of depressed assessments but sales tax increases have made up for it for now. The fiscal year 2013 budget increased one percent to $252.7 million. The Citizen Budget Engagement Team was not all in agreement on Elmwood Park and streetscape expenditures. The team wanted to eliminate the 2.5 percent fees assessed when paying city taxes and bills by credit card. Councilman Bill Bestpitch said, “We don’t want to increase taxes to pay for that fee.� Private businesses are able to increase the cost of merchandise to compensate. Vice-Mayor Dave Trinkle thought that some of the positions in these categories could be matched with the city’s own available resources. Bestpitch said that commercial services provided by the VCE “should have some kind of fee for training on pesticides.� Bowers said he supported the city manager’s proposal for the VCE saying, “it is a popular program.� Councilman Ray Ferris said, “not to minimize VCE contributions

Councilman Court Rosen said he’d “sure like to know what that $18,000 [for VCE] is going toward.â€? He asked to have the information before budget adoption. Morrill though said that he didn’t want to hold up the budget for it. Finance Director Ann Shawver explained that the 1.5 percent cost of living adjustment for city retirees would not impact the budget until 2014. They had not received a COLA increase since June 30, 2007 the same as active employees. Retirees will see a $221 increase. The future proposed COLA formula is 2/3 of the Urban CPI not to exceed four percent and not to exceed active employee pay raises. Shawver thought that the 1.5 percent increase “is kicking the can down the road ‌ ‌ their costs are increasing and not keeping up with inflation.â€? Council will meet Monday at 2 p.m. to adopt the budget. Code Enforcement Overview: Skip Decker, solid waste manager, said that they strive to provide a safe and sanitary neighborhood with citizen education being the goal. “We don’t want to cite anyone,â€? said Decker.

During the celebration Salem ITT Director Ron Charpia said, “We take great pride in our students and our staff � since ITT opened its doors in 2009. He said the school brings students with a diversity of backgrounds “who have committed to lifelong learning and community service.� The program has provisional approval for its two-year nursing associate degree. The degree comes at a cost of over $50,000 - at a per credit hour price of $493 with 109 credits required to graduate, according to their website. Class size ranges from 15 to 20 students and the first class will start in June. Cuccinelli addressed staff and attendees saying how acutely aware he was of the growing need for nurses. He explained

how his responsibility as Attorney General places a high priority on investigating and prosecuting Medicaid fraud and elder abuse. “I can tell you first hand what you probably already know, that our aging population is growing significantly ‌ the demand for more skilled nurses and caregivers is only going to rise.â€? His office hires nurses that do medical analysis in healthcare cases. He told the attendees that he thought that ITT’s nursing curriculum would address nursing values and not just from a book - It teaches communication skills and competent care learning. “There is a need for not only competent technical care but also for the compassion and nurturing that caregivers and nurses can give ‌ they not only have an awesome responsibility to help improve the health of the patients but also to give peace of mind to their family,â€? he said. “Our goal for every student enrolled in the Breckinridge School of Nursing is to become a competent nursing clinician dedicated to a lifetime of caring and continue learning.

Roanoke City School Board Seeks to Stay On Budget Finance Director Ann Shawver said, “We are not out of the woods yet with the possible lack of growth in real estate.” Employment is still recovering and with high fuel cost the city might need to draw on its fund balance. Baker said with the governor’s amendments they “still don’t know what the budget is ... all bets are off in the 2014 – 2015 school year.” Trinkle said that he hoped that the new formula would be a win/win and that their fund balance would continue. “I’m not a big fan of dedicated taxes,” he said. “We don’t tell you how to spend.” Carson said that at the beginning of the year the state announced implementation of a new math SOL. “School systems across the state are concerned about how this was rolled out.” Assistant Superintendent Vella Wright said that teachers are working very diligently and are testing now. “Teachers are stepping up,” she said. Mayor Bowers was concerned about the impact that the lack of teacher’s aides had on the teachers. Carson said that parent volunteers are taking up the slack and urged more parents to volunteer. He said that they have not been able to write contracts with teachers because of the VRS schedule. Later at the council meeting incumbent school board members Mae Huff, Todd Putney and Dick Willis were reappointed for additional three-year terms that will begin in July.

County School Board Approves Final 2012-2013 Budget The Roanoke County School Board approved the 2012-2013 budget at their meeting April 26, 2012. The General Fund budget for 2012-13 reflects revenues based on aid for education in the General Assembly budget released on April 19, 2012 via the State Superintendent. The General Fund budget of $132,562,485 reflects an increase of $1,189,215 or 0.9% more than the preceding year. “I’m pleased with this budget and I’m very thankful for the continued support of the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors,” said Roanoke County School Board Chairman Fuzzy Minnix. “I’m pleased we were able to give our employees a well-deserved raise, we were able to avoid layoffs of full-time contracted employees and we did not need to close any schools. This has been a difficult, frustrating year. A great deal of work has gone into this budget,” said Minnix. “This is a good budget. Fortunately, we were able to receive additional funding from the state that helped us afford raises. We are still making some painful cuts, though, and we will still maintain a hiring freeze,” said Roanoke County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Lorraine Lange. The School Board is required by state code to adopt an annual school budget by April 1 of each year. Despite the fact that the General Assembly had not yet adopted a state budget, the School Board adopted a school budget at their meeting on March 27, 2012 in accordance with this provision. Since that time, the General Assembly has passed a state budget which is expected to be approved by the Governor in the next few weeks. The 2012-13 school budget

approved on March 27, 2012 has been revised to reflect the final state aid for education and the Superintendent’s recommendations to balance the budget. The proposed budget does not include school closings or layoffs of full-time contracted employees. It moves the technology plan purchases out of the operating budget and into grant, minor capital, or yearend balance funding sources in order to free up operating money to offset a portion of the increase in VRS rates. This budget continues the hiring freeze and many positions that are being voluntarily vacated through resignation or retirement will not be filled next year in order to balance the budget. The largest impact on the school budget for next year is the significant increase in VRS retirement related expenditures and the change in the laws governing the VRS retirement plan. For the first time since the early 1980’s, all school employees will be required to contribute 5% of their pay into the Virginia Retirement System. This legislation also requires School Boards to provide an offset-

ting salary adjustment to school employees. To that end, the General Fund budget reflects salary and benefit adjustments including the following: - Salaries have been frozen for three years. This proposed budget includes a 3% cost of living increase for next year. - Health and dental insurance premiums will remain the same for 2012-13. - The VRS retirement rate will increase from 6.33% to 11.66%. (Net of the 5% employee contribution.) - All full-time school employees will be required to contribute 5% of salary as the employee share of the VRS premium effective July 1, 2012. - The School Board is required to provide an offsetting salary adjustment per this legislation. (Also known as the “5 for 5 swap.”) This budget includes a salary offset of 5.75% and the related employer payroll costs on the salary adjustment. - The deferred compensation matching program has been suspended and no new participants will be enrolled.

was to move forward with the same calendar,” said Carson. Councilman Sherman Lea said that while campaigning that it was evident that the community “doesn’t understand how the state plays a part.” Lea asked Carson to help explain that to citizens. Carson said, “The school board unanimously passed a resolution to fully fund education for three years in a row and asked [legislators] to quit sticking mandates on us that you are not paying for.” School board member Lori Vaught said that the legislative conference lobbies legislators even outside the district. Bestpitch said you have citizens concerned about taxes and want the state to cut them. “There are a lot of citizens not thinking that through,” he said. “We need to do a much better job of explaining.” Councilman Ray Ferris asked if Carson’s predicted economic outlook was any different than the city’s. Carson said their fund balance would prevent teacher cutbacks and give teachers a one-percent raise. “We are not spending excess but spending down savings,” said Carson. Richmond’s increase to school funding for the city is due to the increase in the student population. The increase is dwarfed by the increased costs associated with required contributions to the Virginia Retirement System (VRS). The result is that “we are receiving less money net,” said Carson. Curt Baker, deputy superintendent said, “It is clear VRS is going to be the wild card if it keeps increasing.” The drawdown comes to $4 million this year and is a third of our total fund balance, he said.

School Board Chairman David Carson said that contrary to the expected downturn in the number of students attending Roanoke City Schools, just the opposite is true. The first thing they would do to prevent overcrowding would be to adjust the attendance boundaries. “We need to stay on top of it,” he said. “The highest priority is the eventual sale of Huff Lane to add a gym and expand Round Hill,” said Carson. “Every dollar will go to Round Hill.” Vice Mayor Dave Trinkle asked Carson to be proactive and transparent if the attendance zones needed to be adjusted. “Nothing was done years ago in adjusting attendance zones,” Carson said. Councilwoman Anita Price was concerned about class size. Carson said that, “The student to teacher ratio has increased far less than at surrounding districts.” Councilman Court Rosen asked Carson how he felt about getting through the next fiscal year without the 2-cent meals tax. Carson said that they were in “reasonably good shape but spending down savings.” He complained about Roanoke not getting the assistance needed from the state. “In the absence of that occurring it would benefit us to reduce spending,” he said. Rosen asked the school board to look ahead and share financial information and keep dialogue going to head off any sense of urgency. This year students will start two weeks earlier and finish two weeks earlier and all exams will be taken before Christmas. Carson lamented over the failure of the bill that would have school boards set start dates across the board. “Our hope and expectation

It’s not as irritating as it used to be, but online print material loses the ability to leaf back through a paper or riffle through a magazine and book with ease.

toilet from the floor and transported it to the back yard. He was going to fix the thing. Soon I was standing nearby - I couldn't help but watch the proceedings. Along the way, I blurted out the likely cause of the stoppage; I couldn't stay quiet about it any longer. My dad gave me that head shake and "perplexed" look with which I was becoming more and more familiar. Unfortunately, no amount of snaking and probing resulted in dislodging the toy sloop from the innards of the toilet. The next step was setting the toilet on bricks and building a small fire beneath it. Like I said, he was on a mission. For my part, I didn't have any notion of recovering the boat; I had accepted its loss and was secretly delighting in this performance. The fire did not produce any tangible results, but I thought maybe we could see some drops of melted red plastic if we peered into the hole at the underside of the toilet. The fire was extinguished, and then things really got exciting. My dad went back into the house and emerged with not only a sledge hammer in his hands, but a determined look on his face as well. Sure enough, with a few well-placed whacks from the sledge hammer the toilet lay in pieces, the slightly melted little red sloop and its disconnected sail laying there in the midst of them. When the dust settled, my dad plucked the boat from the shards and gently handed it to me. "Don't flush it again, OK?" Contact John Robinson at jwrobinson77@gmail.com

Ask the Nature Lady by Marlene A. Condon English Soccer Is Hard On The Brain I really like how “friendly” dragonflies seem to be. These creatures are not as easily frightened by humans as are most large—and therefore easily visible and vulnerable—animals. Thus you can get fairly close to dragonflies for a look at them, and if you are working around your yard, you might even feel as if they are keeping you company. A dragonfly has huge eyes with which it will watch you about as much as you watch it! It can turn its head as you change your position so you will know if it is keeping tabs on you. However, the main reason for those large eyes is to help dragonflies find and eat other insects to survive. You may see these masters of the air catching other insects in flight or you may see them dart out from a perch on a twig or a rock to catch an insect passing by. One of the most common species of dragonflies is the Whitetailed Dragonfly, so called because it sports a white “tail” that is more accurately known as its abdomen. Depending upon the lighting conditions, the tail sometimes looks like it is a pale blue, so it

The White-tailed Dragonfly is very common in Virginia. It can be easily spotted hunting, especially around ponds where it will mate. helps to also notice if the dragonfly has a thick amber (orangey-brown) marking across each of its four wings. These two field marks (markings that are easily distinguished while “in the field” or outdoors) conclusively identify this insect. A White-tailed Dragonfly overwinters in the larval or immature stage that is known as a “nymph” or “naiad.” Nymphs look entirely different from adults and are much more difficult to see because they are underwater. However, if you carefully scoop up some of the muck from the bottom or the edge of

a pond, you may find one or a few of these little animals hiding in the mud. A dragonfly nymph is only about half an inch long, with a segmented dark brown body and six long legs. It feeds on other animals, just as an adult does. When a nymph is mature, it crawls out of the water, up a plant stem, and breaks out of its aquatic skin (exoskeleton) that is no longer useful for its adult life in the air. The new form that emerges is the one we recognize so well. Before taking flight, a dragonfly must rest for several hours while its wings dry and its body hardens. It may be several days before the adult colors fully develop. Then it feeds for a few weeks in yards, woods, and fields. It’s only when the males and females are ready to mate that they then return to a pond or slow-moving river. Naturalist Marlene A. Condon is the author/photographer of The Nature-friendly Garden: Creating a Backyard Haven for Plants, Wildlife, and People.

The Preacher’s Corner - Why I Need The Church I need the church because I am naturally spiritually lazy and there is accountability and godly routine to corporate worship and being part of a fellowship. I need the church because I can easily deceive myself and I need other brothers and sisters to

speak truth into my life. I need the church because people in the church have spiritual gifts I do not have . . . but gifts I desperately need to be healthy. I need the church because I have gifts that others in the Church family need to be healthy and complete.

I need the church because The Church is Jesus’ plan and his idea for how to grow and do ministry. I need the church because I am lonely without her fellowship. I need the church because other Christians sometimes irritate me and I need to work through the challenging relationships and frustrations that "life together” affords, much like a rough gem needs to be polished with abrasive agents. I need the church because we can do more to change the world together than we can individually. I think this is called synergy: “Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.” I need the church so I am able to join in corporate praise and worship, the Lord’s Supper, Baptism, preaching of the Word, prayers of the people, etc. I need the church to have a “storehouse” to bring my tithe and to be sure that widows and orphans are taken care of by the Body of Christ. I need the church because history has shown that people who are free floaters invariably get off track and into spiritual foolishness. I need the church. What about you? Why do you need the church?

sidering losses at Amtrak, the US Postal Service and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Link these problems with current restrictions on coastal drilling, the delay on approving the Keystone Pipeline from Canada to the US Gulf and restricted drilling on federal lands that drive up fuel costs which hinders almost all segments of the job market. While some of Romney’s critics accuse him of ‘getting rid’ of employees at some of the companies Bain Capital acquired, it is to his credit that he and his colleagues were improving the efficiency of companies that were at risk. In addition to improving productivity and profitability of acquired enterprises, Romney points out that Bain Capital also created thousands of jobs as companies turned around and became profitable. A point to remember: Mitt Romney risked his own and borrowed capital and became wealthy using business skills without the benefit of politics. Many wealthy politicians get it backwards by becoming wealthy because of their political connections. By way of promoting his concepts for solving the enigma of jobs creation if elected President, Mitt Romney has said, “This is a time when America wants to have someone who knows what it takes to create jobs and get people working again.” Contact Dick at info@theroanokestar.com

Championship Chili Cook-Off Serves It Up Hot & Spicy

43rd Annual Strawberry Festival

Elmwood Park was the setting last weekend as the Community School held their annual fundraiser, the Strawberry Festival. As in years past, the focus was on the strawberry shortcakes with ice cream, chocolate dipped strawberries, sundaes and more on the menu. The school and their volunteers prepared more than 120,000 strawberries for the estimated 30,000 attendees, who gobbled up more than 12,000 shortcakes which, as always, sold out. In addition to the strawberries, the festival also featured craft vendors selling everything from â&#x20AC;&#x153;dream-catchersâ&#x20AC;? to jewelry. New this year were additional food vendors, offering chicken wings, BBQ, hot dogs and more. The park was also ringed with political booths, and youth events / and clubs including hockey, basketball, bean bag toss and more. The main stage featured concerts throughout the day on Saturday. Organizers hoped to beat last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total of over $90,000 - money that ultimately goes to pay for tuition and salaries. Story by Carla M. Bream & Photos Valerie Garner

Nothing can stop the roar of the Harley Davidson motorcycles to start the annual Virginia chili cook-off. Every time the engines rev, more chili is ready to be tasted. The annual event brought close to 10,000 people to the Railside Plaza on Salem Avenue in downtown Roanoke last weekend. The cook-off is sanctioned by the International Chili Society and the winning team receives $1,000 and has the right to represent Virginia at the World Championship Chili Cook-Off in Las Vegas or Omaha each year. All proceeds benefit the sponsor, Greenvale School, with tuition assistance and scholarships. Greenvale provides high quality, developmentally appropriate child care services for children of working parents, according to each family's ability to pay. Typically this festival raises $30,000 in net proceeds. The chili cook-off is a family affair with activities including a free Children's Zone staffed by Greenvale teachers. In addition to the 30 or so chili cooking teams, there was also a beer garden, a music stage, a jalapeno pepper eating contest and many craft vendors. All attendees got a chance to sample the various chili recipes and vote for their favorite team, which wins the People's Choice Award. The winner this year was the Q99 Breakfast Club Team. The overall Best Red Chili Team winner, as judged by 60 chili tasting judges, was the "Cowgirl Chili" team from Palmyra VA.

Fourth Annual Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bike Ride Celebrates Bike Month

There was some trepidation Saturday morning as light rain fell and cyclists began to gather at the Bennington Park parking lot to celebrate Bike Month. But the short sprinkle did not deter the avid cyclists who had gathered for the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bike Ride. Decorated spoke cards were waiting for kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bikes - a priority for youngsters, dating back decades, used when wanting a little â&#x20AC;&#x153;varoomâ&#x20AC;? while in motion.

Cave Spring Out-Scores Spartans North Cross Topples Covenant 17-7 In River Ridge Baseball 8-3 in VIC Semi-Final The North Cross Raiders avenged a disappointing regular season loss to The Covenant School by knocking off the powerhouse from Charlottesville for the first time ever by a score of 8-3. The game was a defensive struggle through three quarters with the Raiders holding onto a 4-3 lead going into the final quarter before the offense took charge racking up 4 straight goals to close out the win. Kurtis Naslonski notched 3 goals with Pendleton Draper scoring 2 and Christopher Pollock, Paul Ross and George Revercomb adding 1 apiece.

Cave Spring scored eight times in both the first and fifth innings as the Knights overpowered Salem 17-7 in a River Ridge baseball matchup shortened to five innings via the slaughter rule Friday afternoon at Knights Field. Salem jumped out to an early lead with five runs in the top of the first before Cave Spring roared back with eight of their own in the bottom of the opening frame. The Spartans cut the Knights lead to 9-7 after four, but Cave Spring plated eight more in their half of the fifth to end the game with the 10-run advantage. Ryan Gerhardt, Reece Kingery and Steve Klaiber each had three hits and three RBIs for Cave Spring. Zach Utterback connected on a home run for the Knights. David Boston led Salem with a 2-hit, 2-RBI afternoon.

Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Derby winner, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Have Anotherâ&#x20AC;?, was quite the performer in the last 300 yards. The name alone should have offered a clear hunchplay for me. But, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still two races left with the May 19th Preakness and June Belmont Stakes. So what better time than to offer Wild Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Know Your Triple Crown Racing.â&#x20AC;? If you find a sucker that thinks this horse is unbeatable, keep in mind only 11 horses have won the triple crown, the last in 1978. Also, in 1968, we had a presidential candidate attend the Derby, whereupon the winner, Dancerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Image, was disqualified for cheating. It was old tricky-Dick Nixon in the crowd. Draw your own conclusion if Obama shows up at the Preakness and a horse named Solyndra goes off at 9-to-1. The Wild Bill â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Big-11â&#x20AC;&#x2122; baseball Top-3 stays pat this week with Lord Botetourt (16-1), Northside (16-1) and Hidden Valley (11-4-1) holding steady in the 1-3 spots. A shakeup may be in the cards May 15th when Botetourt visits Northside with the Blue Ridge regular season title on the line. In the softball Top-3, Northside has pulled away from the pack with its win over Byrd Tuesday, and a 17-1 mark. Byrd stays in the place position at 13-5, while Glenvar shows at 13-4.

pair of late-night products that I unfortunately reviewed during the recent Washington Nationals west-coast swing against the Dodgers. First, the infamous â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shtickyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. This is pitched to be an essential gadget that picks up lint, pet hair and crumbs from a silicone-coated roller. I always thought silicone prevented sticking, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a chemist; therefore Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take their word. For one price, you originally got a little shticky and a medium shticky. The new offer says you can now have a big shticky, which is long, for hard-to-reach places. I got interested at this point, but when I woke my wife up and asked if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like a big shticky for Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, she cut off the game in the middle of the sixth inning, before I got the toll-free number. Last, but not least, we have Dr. Peter Popoff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miracle Spring Water. (Hey guys, I swear Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not making this up.) The doctor says the small cachet, if sprinkled properly, assures debt cancellation. Several people offer unsolicited testimonials that they bought the water, and money unexplicably appeared in their checking account. Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the FCC gone? Caveat emptor on this one, or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the big shticky for sure.

Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience. "We women of one country Will be too tender of those of another country To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs." From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with Our own. It says, "Disarm, Disarm!" The sword of murder is not the balance of justice! Blood does not wipe out dishonorNor violence indicate possession.
