Signs from the Sign Man:
HAPPY 60TH BIRTHDAY JUMPER JOINER. FROM TINA AND KEVIN.
30 YEARS AGO DONKEY BASKETBALL WAS COMING TO TOWN.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANICE WALDEN JAN. 29. STILL LOOKS 25.
We had some great times at those basketball games. We used to pack them in, almost as full as when Wheeler traveled to Treutlen. For the boys games every seat was filled and people were standing at each end, and some were standing outside.
Honey Pot, the tyrant of the court, was ridden by Wayne Sumner 30 years ago. He spent more time on the floor than on the back of his untrusty steed, and he was sore for several days. The games were great fun and brought in funds for the athletic boosters, who spent the money to support school sports. The lovely Sharol King, waitress for the Corner Restaurant, won the contest to kiss Elvis --- an unlovely donkey. Would you like to see the picture?
There was an interesting story in a church bulletin insert about a civil rights lawsuit in Maryland. Amber Mangum was reading her Bible in the school cafeteria during her lunch period when she was informed that reading a Bible was a violation of the school's policy. The Rutherford Institute - a civil liberties organization has taken up the case, saying that Amber's actions fell within school policy.
Civil liberties organizations such as the UCLA are criticized for the work they do. Here is an example that the defense of constitutional and human rights works on both sides of the street.
