1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS

New Year’s Prayer by Charlotte Anselmo

Thank you Lord for giving me
The brand new year ahead
Help me live the way I should
As each new day I tread.

Give me gentle wisdom
That I might help a friend
Give me strength and courage
So a shoulder I might lend.

The year ahead is empty
Help me fill it with good things
Each new day filled with joy
And the happiness it brings.

Please give the leaders of our world
A courage born of peace
That they might lead us gently
And all the fighting cease.

Please give to all upon this earth
A heart that’s filled with love
A gentle happy way to live
With Your blessings from above.

THANK YOU, eNEWS SUBSCRIBERS! Your news, ads, organization and local government notices, agendas and minutes are key to this collaborative effort. We believe that informed citizens act in the best interest of our county community and your participation is very important!  ~The Editor 

APPRECIATION & RESPECT. We respect and appreciate our fellow citizens who run for public office or volunteer to fill unpaid positions for our school  and youth programs, churches, city councils, county government, non-profit organizations and farm and electric cooperatives… and who step up to help produce special events…. and those who donate to our nonprofits, school and churches. We estimate that about 291 volunteers are required! Thank you, Volunteers and Donors! Congratulations to citizens who will be sworn-in for public service! ~The Editor.
