As one might expect, we get
a lot of questions in our line
of work. Ị ot only are we
asked for the latest news as
well as the low-down on
things that have yet to come
to fruition, we are frequently
approached about our editorial comments.
Contrary to what most folks
might think, the most frequent comments about our
miserable scribblings are
favorable. i would estimate
that we only get two or three
hateful comments/letters/
emails a year.
it’d be easy to pat ourselves
on the back and imagine ourselves as the voice of the
people, but more likely,
those who despise our views
either a) Figure we’re not
worth the effort or b) Quit
reading us a long time ago.
Because so many folks ask
the same questions of me, i
thought this week i would
dedicate a bit of time and
space to answer a few of
these questions.
“You’d print anything,
wouldn’t you?”
Sometimes said as a compliment and other times in
sarcasm, this comment is one
we’ve heard a lot over the
years. My stock answer is
generally, “if you only knew
how much we refuse to print
each week!”
there are many things we
don’t print. For example, i
refuse to run fatal accident
photos. Who really needs to
see that anyway? Leave the
grieving families alone.
they’re suffered enough.

A Ị orman woman was
arrested last week after her
teenage daughter called
police about her mother’s
erratic driving.
According to Glenwood
Police Chief randy reid, a
13-year-old girl called 911 to
report that her mother was
“driving crazy, yelling and
screaming” and had kicked
her out of the car at a
Glenwood business.

Former local youth dies in
Fort Smith house fire
By Joe May
Editor
A former local youth was
killed in a fire last week.
According to the Arkansas
democrat-Gazette, a residence belonging to timothy
and Betinna Cash ireland of
Fort Smith, formerly of
Arkadelphia, was destroyed
by fire Friday afternoon after
a spark from a cookstove
ignited a curtain.
Christian ireland, 17, told
police he was cooking when
a spark from the stove ignited a curtain that was covering a doorway. it then spread
to the wall behind the stove
and engulfed the house.
His father, timothy, 41,
managed despite his multiple
sclerosis, to drag his wheelchair-bound
daughter,
Elizabeth, 15, out of the
home to safety, leaving her in
the back yard. He struggled
through a flaming doorway
to get the girl, unstrapped her
from her wheelchair and was
able to get her to a rear doorway. the door was jammed
shut, he later told police, but
he was able to get the girl out
of the home by breaking the
door.
When police and fireman
arrived on scene, they found
timothy
and
Bettina
ireland, 36, laying on the
front lawn.
Elizabeth
ireland was in the back
yard. Christian ireland
was running around the
front yard screaming that
the stove had blown up
and his brother was still
in the home.
Patrolman Angus
Bradford attempted to
enter the home to locate
16-year-old
Carrol
ireland, but was prevent
from entering due to
heavy smoke. He could
hear moaning coming
from a back window, he
noted.
At this point, fire and
emergency
personnel
arrived on scene and after
water was directed at the
flames, firemen were able
to enter the home. Using
thermal-imaging cameras,
they located the youth in
a bedroom and brought
him outside, where officials performed CPr on
him until he could be
transported to the hospital. A faint pulse was
reported at the time, the
paper noted.
the rest of the family
were transported to the
hospital, where they were
treated and released.
Carrol ireland died the
next day at Arkansas
Childrens’s Hospital in
Little rock where he had
been transferred late
Friday.
the ireland family formerly resided in Arkadelphia on
Walnut Street in the home
that was once occupied by
Bettina ireland’s grandfather,
dr. Eli Gary.

driving extremely dangerously on the way back from
daisy and had been acting in
an erratic manner.
Across the street, while
talking to the mother, the
officer located a pipe with
marijuana residue in it located next to the woman’s car.
the woman, identified as 35year-old Kendra Jones of
Ị orman, admitted it and
another pipe found across the
street near her daughter
belonged to her.
Jones claimed her daughter
“had issues,” reid noted and
demanded a medic check the
girl out. A subsequent check
revealed no problems, the
chief noted.
the woman was asked to
submit to a field sobriety
test, but refused. She was
then arrested for two counts
of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of
posttension of a controlled
substance. A subsequent
search of her vehicle yielded
five plastic baggies of various prescription pills. She
was then charged with five
counts of possession of a
controlled substance without
a prescription.

the 8am service at the
First United Methodist
Church of Hot Springs was a
great celebration for Easter
Sunday. We appreciated the
choir from the 10:55 service,
the Jubilation Handbells, our
organist as well as a special
pianist and several handsome young men with trumpets, trumbones and timpani.
the Easter lilies given by
members in honor or memory of someone were lovely.
in ancient Greece and
rome, crowns of bay leaves
were bestowed upon winning olympians, victorious
soldiers and others who won
death-defying feats and
became a symbol of victory
and courage. (the Latin
name for the bay tree
“Lacrus” means laurel and
“nobilis” means famous).
the terms “poet laureate”
and “baccalaureate” stem
from distinguished scholars
and physicians being awarded laurel berries (boccalauri) in recognition of their
achievements.)

“Hunger
Games” & us
Gotta have an audience
Some of us live nicely without
utilities and i’ve even heard of a
teenager somewhere who doesn’t have a cell phone. But for
Alphonse “Windy” Wilson, it’s
quite impossible to live without
an audience. there’s more than
one benefit to being in that audience when Windy gets cranked
up, too, because not only do you
hear Windy’s version of stories,
but you can pick up a few words
you never dreamed existed.
Like the other day … there was
ol’ Windy, sitting on the bench in
front of the hardware store, right
where most of the school kids
passed on their way home. As
soon as he’d ambushed three or
four of them, he began:
“Ị ow i don’t want you fellers to
think i’m making this up, but
before you were around, there
was a pelthra of grizoolly bears
in these here mountains. You
know how mean they can get.
Welzir, one afternoon there i
was, a-setting on a big ol’ rock,
takin’ it for granite that i was all
by my lonesome, when this silvertrip grizoolly comes walkin’
along. Ị ow i was only armed
with my twenty-rye-tooful at the
time, and this caused me a mod-

iclum of disconstertation, i can
tell you. i was on the ragged
ledge of being consarned for my
own safety. it was a nipple and
tuck situation there.
“So i ups and says, ‘Bear be
gone!’ in this real loud voice, and
at first, he was fixin’ to get all
algitated with me, but finally he
sees i’m serious and he gets outa
there, lickity-splat! You’da
thought he’d been vacillated with
a brandin’ arn. Sometimes, guys,
you just have to be vigorously
fierceful on ‘em.”
When the audience had moved
on, i congratulated Windy on his
contributions to their vocabularies. He smiled modestly
and said, “it’s our duty to
help ‘em get aculturtated.”
i guess you learn something
new every day. i’d always
thought “algitated” meant
getting upset at pond scum.

He is risen!
i write to you this week
on Easter morning, or as my
religion
calls
it,
"resurrection day." i was
given a patio table and some
chairs by a friend of the family who is moving to Little
rock.
this morning, before sitting down to this column, i
checked the backyard to see
if it was too wet to mow
(thankfully it was) and then
wound up sitting at this new
furniture. it felt great. Sure,
its old and somebody stole
the cushions to the chairs,
but it is perfect backyard furniture as far as i am concerned. i am a man who
believes in functionality
first, looks second. i am
married to a lady that will no
doubt work toward us having both as the years go by.
that is good. We balance
each other.
resurrection day is
actually the most important
day in the Christian religion.
For those of you who have
never been to a church built
around the worship of Jesus
Christ, Christ was and is the
only begotten Son of God.
He was crucified, dead and
buried, and on the third day
he rose from the dead.
resurrection day celebrates
the resurrection of Jesus
Christ, thus cutting a trail for
believers who ask Him to
forgive our sins and prepare a
place for us in heaven. i believe
the story. that is my prerogative.
the government of today would
tell you my religion and my eternal hope for salvation is dangerous to the population at large
because we have a book of rules
called the Bible that guides our
lives. i do believe God gave
them to us to do the best we can
to follow. if anyone was capable
of really doing that, he would not
have had to have Jesus Christ
sacrificed so His blood would
cover our sins.
And that is Just John's
sermon for the morning. Am
i tolerant of other religions?
Sure. But i still believe Jesus
is the only religious leader
who ever beat death. the
rest of them, well their
dreams died with them. And,
as one of my heroes Forest
Gump used to say, "that is
all i have to say about that."
My old religion, before i
started taking Jesus and his
John
Nelson
columnist
promises seriously, was
hedonism. For those of you
not familiar with that term, it
means pleasure seeker. i was
of the opinion if it felt good i
was going to try it. i was old
schooled to believe that a live
worth living was worth working
hard to maximize the achievements you could do with the talents God gave you and to work
equally as hard to enjoy your
time off work in as many ways
as possible.
if i were still a hedonist,
this fat boy would probably
grace a church door about
twice a year; Easter and
Christmas. the rest of the
Sundays would be spent
drinking beer and fishing, or
just fishing and drinking
beer. But things change
when you turn your will over
to the will of a higher being
known as Jesus Christ.
Whoops, there i go almost
preaching again. Well its
Easter, what do you expect
me to be thinking about?
iN GUrDoN
in Gurdon yesterday, we
had the annual Easter Egg
Hunt at the park. i was going
to take photos of those finding the prize winning eggs. it
was supposed to be from 10
a.m. until noon. i was late. i
got there at 11 and everybody
was already done. Kids like to
hunt eggs. Kids are faster than
seasoned journalists. Ị ote to the
gallows, next year Ị elson needs
to show up say 9:30 and that
way maybe get some follow-up
photos for The Standard and/or
the Tailgate News. this year, i
will have to hope my friend
tambra may have some prize
winning photos on her phone. i
will ask.
in other business, the annual Fishing rodeo and the
Citywide Clean-up are both on
deck to happen in April - if
memory serves. the weather
here lately, between rain storms
at least, has been perfect. i have
been in transition from print
media to online media so i have
not had a chance to go fishing,
but i will. i am pretty sure when
i finally get out there to a pond or
river bank, i will need a new
license.

Are you still exulting in the
exuberance of Easter? if that
feeling was not caused by
the extra-ordinary pomp of a
worship service, perhaps it
came later over a family
gathering—like ours—or an
afternoon with friends.
Hallelujah! Christ is risen!
As i promised last week, i
discovered from my uncle
John Pelton that the plant
with the maroon capsule
buds and the trumpet-shaped
blooms is Cross-Vine. He
only had a small picture on
my cell phone to go by, but
he gave me three possibilities: cross vine, trumpet
creeper and trumpet honeysuckle. Pictures on the
internet proved that my firsttime-to-bloom vine is a
Cross Vine.
Last week’s anagram for
April is Pilar, a main character in Hemingway’s For
Whom the Bell tolls.
one morning this week, i
watched out the south window as a male robin commandeered the freshly-filled
birdbath. He stood his
ground, er rim. A female cardinal flew up faced him off
by staying on the other side.
Soon, a brown thrasher
joined the two. As if waiting
for the robin to leave, the
thrasher swooped down and
ate from the grass. When it
flew back to the rim, the car-

in “the Hunger Games,” author
Suzanne Collins starts the story in
the middle of the story. i’ve only
read the first two books of the trilogy and don’t know what the third
book will reveal. Maybe Collins
tells how the state of Panem – name
of the fictional nation in the book –
became so oppressive.
the good news for book readers
and moviegoers is Collins portrays
heroic solutions to oppressive,
tyrannical centralized government
through acts of individual sacrifice.
this is a lesson our children and
grandchildren will likely need.
Strong centralized governments
have historically been tyrannical
and oppressive by nature. Collins
plays that theme like a fiddle as she
contrasts the opulence and gluttonous indulgences of the Capitol
with utter poverty and want in the
twelve districts outside the Capitol.
the tale goes something like this:
once upon a time Panem was a
prosperous nation where everybody
enjoyed…well, prosperity. one day
district 13 rebelled against the central government and reduced the
whole nation to poverty. district 13
was allegedly annihilated and the
other twelve districts were submitted to cruel Hunger Games annually to remind “the people” that rebellion against the Capitol is never a
good thing. the story begins in the
74th year of the Hunger Games.
in the Hunger Games, a boy and
girl between the ages of 12 and 18
are selected randomly from each
district to fight to the death until
only one child is left as the victor.
the victor’s district wins abundant
food for the next year. the event is
televised nationally so everyone
sees the brutality and killing one
might imagine as children are
forced to kill other children in barbarous ways.
of course, those in the Capitol are
exempted from having their children play in these games, and they
also enjoy year round abundance of
food and other delights, not that
there are any parallels in America
today.
But, i digress. in the first book the
heroine and hero both become victors after embarrassing the Capitol
into allowing two victors for the
first time. You see, rulers in the
Capitol are very thinned skinned
and demand complete subjection
by the masses, not unlike some of
our rulers in Washington today.
When the two are left at the end of
the game, instead of fighting to the
death they threaten to commit suicide – bad Pr for the Capitol, and a
potential trigger for revolution.
And, in fact, the act of bravery does
spark a rebellion in several of the
isolated districts, unbeknownst to
everybody outside of the Capitol
(the elite media in the Capitol only
report the Capitol line) except corrupt leaders of the individual districts who enforce laws with ruthless police called Peacekeepers.
Bless them….
Panem has laws restricting any
kind of protest against the Capitol,
sort of like Hr 347, the bill
President obama signed last week
prohibiting any kind of protest
against him or anyone under Secret
Service protection in any arena
where he travels. don’t get me
wrong. Americans can still protest
Mr. obama’s policies, but just not in
his presence.
Sorry, i keep digressing because
Collins’ trilogy has so many parallels with Washington’s centralized
government taking over America at
the expense of our individual rights
and freedoms.
i recommend reading “the Hunger
Games” especially for young folks
(13 and older) who can gain a
vision of how individuals can
rise up against the tyranny of
oppressive centralized government and media to gain inalienable rights granted to every one
of us by our Creator.

et tu, uteri!
Many country veterinary
practitioners have invested
money in their clinics for
facilities to handle cattle and
horses. it is for the convenience of the vet but also for
the restraint and treatment of
the patient. However, there
were those clients that
assumed it was so the vet
could charge them for an
office call. dr. Blaine took
an after-hours call from a 3rd
generation cattlewoman in
the rolling foothills of western Alberta.
“We’ve got a prolapse and
need you to come to the
ranch straight away,” she
said.
“i’ve got this clinic here,
eh?” he offered.
“Ị ay, it’s too far, she’s too
big and she’s down!”
An hour later doc pulled
into the pasture where the
cow lay. due to the mud,
slush and frozen snow he
was only able to get within
30 meters of the 1500 lb
Simmental cross. He positioned his vehicle so that he
would have some light on
the area.
the cow lay on a sloping
hillock with her head to the
upside. the prolapse, which
he named Polly, as in, “Let’s
get Polly back in there!” was
proportional to the size of
her cow. that is to say, it
was comparable to a fourfoot-long, 50 lb breakfast
burrito!
in spite of their efforts to
manhandle the cow to face
downhill so gravity was on
their side, they were unable.
the rancher brought a
Polaris AtV from the barn.
Using a rope, they successfully moved the cow into the
desired position. doc knew
better than to tie the rope to
his vet truck. it was already
missing one side mirror and
the passenger door didn’t
close properly from the previous cow encounter. they
tied it to the Polaris and
snugged it.
At that moment the cow rose
up and stood. She appeared
to be in a trance. Quickly
taking advantage, doc
smoothly injected an epidural. With the rancher’s help
they inverted Polly in a matter of minutes. As soon as it
plopped in, the cow had a
miraculous recovery! She
suddenly became aware of
her situation, causing her to
attempt an escape dragging
the Polaris behind her. they
looked like two elephantine
ice skaters in a post partum
ballet!
the cow finally tangled in

the line and they managed to
slow her down. At that point
she turned her newfound
fury on her tormentors,
attacking the good doctor
and turning the 4-wheeler
into a 3-wheeler!
doc was leaning up against
his pickup trying to catch his
breath while the unlady-like
rancher turned the air blue
with curses, lamentations,
and threats of bovine
felonies! “Why does this
always happen to me?!” she
moaned, “Why me?”
“i’ve got this clinic now,
eh?” said dr. Blaine.

i won’t run alcohol or lottery ads and oaklawn Park
doesn’t have enough money
to purchase advertising from
me. i don’t print items that
glorify any immoral activities such as drinking or
homosexuality and i won’t
run something that is derogatory of God.
And of course, there are
laws that prevent some
things from being published.
We naturally follow them.
What seems to amaze folks
is the fact that we don’t care
who you are or who you
think you are. if you get
yourself in trouble with the
law, you risk being in the
paper. there’s no favoritism
here nor is there a rush to condemn someone needlessly.
to sum it up, what we print
is determined by these two
rules: 1. Can i stand before
God and justify it? i will
have to one day. 2. Can i
walk down the street and still
be respected?. if the answer
is no to either of these questions, then it doesn’t need to
hit print.
“Are you racist?”
Amazingly, our articles that
deal with racial subjects
never seem to draw fire from
the black community. it’s
always white apologists who
get their feathers ruffled.
Black folks are smart enough
to know that it’s ok to question black leaders or the
whole status quo of racial
politics. treat a black man
as well as everyone else out
of sincerity and he doesn’t
care how little you think of
the Ị AACP.
So many white folks read
my anti-MLK and Ị AACP
scribblings and chuckle to
me, “i bet the black folks
don’t like you.” Ị o, actually, i have black customers
and black readers. Unlike
their white counterparts,
they’re smart enough to
understand that we don’t
have to all agree in this
world. My views on black
leaders don’t affect the way i
treat folks of that color.
Hating someone because
their skin is different than
yours is wrong, regardless of
your color. And yes, boys
and girls, racists come in all
shades of the rainbow. i want to
go to Heaven one day, so hatred
is out of the question.
And not only that, i can
recall back over thirty years
ago when i was just a very
young boy. i wasn’t popular
in school and spent much of
my elementary years alone.
one year, some black girls in
my class noticed this and
invited me to play a game
known as “four square” with
them. they treated me better
than my white peers did and
recess became an enjoyable
time for me that year. You
don’t forget things like that,
folks.
Even today, if i find myself
in a local black neighborhood, it seems i’m always
shaking hands with someone
i went to school with. Hate
black folks? Ị ot a chance.
Some of them have treated
me better than white folks
ever did.
“You’re a Republican,
aren’t you?”
the answer to that question
used to be a yes, but that’s
not the case nowadays.
truth is, i don’t believe in
political parties.
Growing up, i always called
myself a democrat because
that’s was the party of my
parents at that time.
it was in Mary Jane
Cooper’s government class
in my junior year that i
learned, much to my horror,
that i was not a democrat,
but rather a republican. i was
aghast to say the least, because
after all, Carpetbaggers were
republican! i just couldn’t
be one of ....them.
From that time on then, i
identified with the GoP. As
i matured, though, i kept seeing things i didn’t like. i
couldn’t buy into every economic stance and it seems
republicans didn’t mind
compromising on moral
issues when they felt the
need. And then along came
dick Chaney, and, well, i left
the fold.
the more i study God’s
Word, the more i learn that
as a Christian, i am not to
ally myself with parties of
men. Why be against an
issue simply because a member of a group you dislike
supports it? that’s following
men instead of God.
And so, i became a conservative voter. i vote based on
social issues. the devil take
the economy, i vote in ways
that i hope please the Lord.
At any rate, i can sleep at night.
“Aren’t you afraid of being
attacked?”
this question amuses me,
even though the folks that
ask it do so in earnest.
Because i follow God, i fear
no man. Whatever happens
to me will be the will of God.
Besides, what makes me
even worth being attacked?
i’m nothing but a country
newspaper editor. i ain’t
worth attacking.
others warn me to carry a
gun. A gun is never far from
me, but i don’t believe in
putting my faith in a weapon.
if i have to worry that much
about being attacked, i’m
obviously not living right.
i will speak up for morality
and justice as long as there is
breath in me. Ị either an
abridgement of Christianity
by law or the threats of evil
men will stop me. i live by
this principal found in i
Peter 3:14 “But even if you
should suffer for righteousness sake, you are blessed.
And do not be afraid of their
threats or be troubled.
(Emphasis mine)
So somebody hates me and
thinks my views (which
come straight from the pages
of Scripture) are repugnant?
Big deal. ii John 3:13 “do
not marvel if the world hates
you...”

Medications for an Upset Stomach
Dyspepsia, also described as indigestion, is a condition that causes
discomfort or pain in the upper part of the stomach. Approximately 25%
of persons report experiencing dyspepsia each year. Many dietary habits may contribute to an upset stomach, including overeating, excessive
caffeine intake, eating fatty foods, and eating spicy foods. Non steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs ), such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin)
and naproxen (Aleve) may also lead to symptoms of dyspepsia which
include feeling uncomfortably full after a meal, feeling full quickly after
eating, and pain and burning in the upper stomach.
Dietary changes may improve symptoms, including avoidance of fatty
foods and avoidance of specific foods that trigger symptoms. H2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may be recommended to decrease stomach acid. Omeprazole (Prilosec) is available
both over-the-counter and with a prescription. Ranitidine (Zantac) and
cimetidine (Tagamet) are H2RAs that are available over-the-counter.
Metoclopramide (Reglan) improves movement in the upper gastrointestinal tract and favorably increases gastric emptying. An antidepressant,
such as amitriptyline (Elavil) or desipramine (Norpramin ), may be prescribed for treatment of associated pain.

Saved by baptism
By JoHN e. WerHaN

“Observe Electrical Safety” • Your Energy Partner
As one seeks God’s inspired truth, we must under1140 Main Street in Arkadelphia
stand the root of our beliefs as well as our miscon870-246-6701
ceptions. there have been times when considering
the importance of baptism with those who hold to
• Memphis, TN 38174-0298
Huldrych Zwingli’s 1525 doctrine of “Believer’s
T
Baptism” who have asked me; “where in the Bible
Alpine, Arkansas
does it say baptism saved anyone?”
870-342-9227
it is evident that the majority of those individuals
do not know the root of their belief or that this doctrine is only 484 years old. this is why it is important for those truly seeking God’s truth to turn from
such man-made doctrines and seek truth from the
inspired word of God (written in the first century).
Peter compared the salvation of Ị oah and his family, through the waters of the flood, with the salvation offered by God’s grace in the Christian age.
Peter had just written, “…God kept waiting in the
days of Ị oah, during the construction of the ark, in
which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought
safely through the water” (1 Peter 3:20).
then he goes on to write, “Corresponding to that,
baptism now saves you … through the resurrection
of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 3:21).
For one seeking God’s truth, it should be evident
that God saved Ị oah and his family “through
water” and people today are saved “through water
baptism.” God sent the great flood upon the earth
because humankind had become so evil that they
had turned away from him (Genesis 6 & 7).
in essence, God cleansed the world of all the evil
corruption by the use of the medium of water. it
was because of God’s grace that he commanded
Ị oah to build the Ark.
Ị oah kept the commandments exactly as God
instructed. And because of their righteousness and
their obedience, they were the only individuals to
be saved through the flood and walk out of the Ark

into a clean new world (Genesis 8).
Peter tells us that when a person is baptized in
water, he come forth into a clean new life. Paul
writing to the Ephesians and Colossians commends
them for becoming Christians and lying “aside the
old self with its evil practices, and have put on the
new self”. (Ephesians 4; Colossians 3). it is when
one is “baptized” that they are raised to “walk in
newness of life.” (romans 6:4).
Peter writing by the inspiration of God in the first
century explains, “…baptism now saves you…” (1
Peter 3:21a). Like unto the salvation through the
flood for Ị oah and his family it is through the
medium of water baptism that one receives salvation today. He notes that baptism is not the washing of the external body but the washing of the
spiritual soul (Acts 22:16).
the qualifying phrases and clauses of this context
merely explain what water baptism is and is not.
Peter is not stating that baptism “alone” saves us.
Ị or does he state that the good conscience saves or
that baptism is a symbol of our salvation. He simply states, “… baptism now saves you.” When one
obeys the inspired commanded “to be baptized in
the name of Jesus Christ” (Acts 10:48), one
demonstrates to God that we have fulfilled a condition of salvation, and thus can “appeal to God for
a good conscience” by fulfilling his command
(Matthew 7:21).
the inspired teaching concerning “baptism” was
well-known in the first century as explained by
Peter in this passage. it was not until 1500 years
later that man changed what the inspired word
taught. the question is, are you following a 484year-old man-made doctrine or the ancient truth
found in the inspired word of God?
Your eternal salvation is dependent on your
choice.

Bismarck board increases lunch price; votes to rehire principals
By Joe May
Editor
Patrons of the Bismarck
School district will pay
twenty cents more for lunches next year.
Meeting in regular session
Monday evening, the board
heard a recommendation
from Superintendent Susan
Stewart-Harper to raise
lunch prices by twenty cents
so as as to conform with government-mandated changes
in pricing.
the price of student lunches will now be $2 per day,
she said, noting that about
53% of the district’s students
are making use of the free
and reduced lunches.
She also noted that unlike
other years, parents are paying their children’s lunch
bills.
“i’ve only had two this year
that didn’t,” she said.
At the motion of directors
Gary Burroughs and tony
Hardage, the motion carried.
the board also retired into
executive session for a hearing on a discipline issue.
LiSt
Should the district be
placed on the list, it would
not be the first time. the
Bismarck district was placed
on fiscal distress in 2006,
Stewart-Harper said, noting
that at that time the average
ending
balance
was
$112,000. today, that number is at $1.2 million.
“We are not where we were
six years ago,” she said.
“the only reason for us to
have a decline is because we
paid our bills.”
Stewart-Harper denied
claims from the community
that the board had given over
a million dollars in teacher
raises and bonuses.
“i heard that,” she commented. “there is no way.
that would be over $13,000
per employee.”
the only extra money spent
on teacher raises, she said,
was when the board voted to
add two step increases to the
salary schedule. they also
added $500 to each step
increase, she said, explaining
that not every employee
would have gotten a raise
under that approach, while
others could have received
$500 or a $1,000, depending
on where the employee was
in his or her tenure with the
district.
Asked if she expected the
district to be placed on the
list, Stewart-Harper stated, “i
really don’t know. i hope we
can get there and show them
we are fiscally sound.”
district officials will meet
with the state board in May,
Stewart-Harper said.
Continued From Page 1
them on physical distress,”
Stewart-Harper noted. “So
this is coming because the
district obeyed the state
board.”
Some of the change orders
were what the superintendent
characterized as “necessary
expenses,” including the
installation of a handicap
sidewalk at the school,
repairs to the driveway and
parking lot due to soft soil
conditions, relocating the
wastewater treatment plant
and other items. She noted
that the original architectural
plans left out data cables,
which would have left the
school unable to hook up to
the internet.
Glenwood Senior News
remember to come out this
Saturday evening (the 14th)
to the Glenwood Senior
Activity Center at 229 Betty
St to “Meet the Candidates.”
Besides getting to meet the
candidates, there will be a
delicious
“Bean
and
Cornbread” dinner with cole
slaw, drinks, etc. it will be
an interesting evening with
the candidates discussing
their desires to hold the
office they are seeking. And
maybe we will have a little
entertainment by the Senior
Center trio. Also we will
have a limited “Pie & Cake”
auction for the benefit of the
Senior Center. So save some
money for the event.
We will have distributed the
Monthly Commodities to
100 elderly people this week.
And we will be distributing
the Quarterly Commodities
on tuesday, April 17th.
We are encouraging all residents in this and surrounding
areas to come in and get the
Quarterly Commodities. We
used to get supplies for 240
families, but because not
enough came in to sign up
for them, we have been cut
back to 216 this time. So i
am going to publish the contents for the Quarterly supplies so that you will see that
they are worth coming for.
You will get 2 cans of Beef
Stew; 2 cans of Peaches; 2
cans of Mixed Vegetables; 2
cans of tomato Soup; 2 cans
of Spinach; 2 dried Pitted
Plums and 1 Grapefruit
Juice, value totaling at least
$25.00 (i went to the local
grocery store and checked
prices). i don't have the
amount of income you can
draw to qualify, but you can
call the office at 870-3564212 and they will have that

information. We hope all of
the supplies will be given out
so they won't cut us back
more. And if we can distribute all these, maybe they will
increase our supplies back to
240. We want to be of service to the residents of this
community and i encourage
you to check it out.
i haven't received any
information how the Fishing
derby went last week. i hope
many people caught fish and
enjoyed the event.
At least we won't be complaining about hot weather
this week. We'd better keep
our winter clothes out for a
few more weeks. But we
need the rain and will be
planting a few small gardens
now i guess. i look forward
to raising my own tomatoes,
squash & peppers. Last year
they wouldn't produce, but i
hope this will be a better
year. Have a good week.
