David Caldwell's weekly roundup
of news affecting Blacklick Valley

Weather

Unusually warm weather continues in the Blacklick Valley. This past week, like the week before, began cold and gradually warmed to temperatures in the high sixties and low seventies. Local residents took advantage of the warm spell and started cleaning their yards of debris deposited by winter winds. Some have pushed snow blowers to the back of sheds and garages and pulled out rototillers to prepare gardens for spring planting. Area stores like Wal-Mart and Lowes have moved snow removal equipment into the background and placed lawn mowers and rototillers out front. One major drawback to all this warm weather is the continuing lack of rain. And, to remind us that spring has not yet arrived, several news outlets ran stories about severe cold and heavy snowfalls as recently as March of 1993 and 1999.

CCACC

Dr. John Kingsmore, interim president of the Cambria County Area Community College, although new to his position, has already pushed forward toward permanent accreditation and believes the seven-year-old educational dream will achieve the goal this summer. The trustees of CCACC know that without accreditation students working toward degrees will not have their work recognized by other colleges and universities, should they decide to transfer. Low-cost educational institutions like CCACC provide an important first step for many who have to work their way through college.

Crash site

High school students in Lucerne County have developed a proposal to designate the crash site of Flight 93 in Somerset County near Shanksville as a National Battleground. They reasoned that the passengers over taking the terrorists who had hijacked the plane had become the first to take part in the war against terrorism. Pennsylvania's legislators who have passed it on to Congress unanimously accepted the plan put forward by the students. Meanwhile, Rep. John P. Murtha, within whose district the crash site lies, has introduced a bill to have the crash site of Flight 93 set aside as a National Park. It will probably be some time in the future before action is completed on either idea.

Shout, if so moved

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents'. At bedtime, they knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs, "I PRAY FOR A NEW BICYCLE AND A NEW PLAYSTATION 2."

The older boy leaned over and asked his little brother, "Why are you shouting? God isn't deaf."

The little one replied, "No, but Grandma is!"

Thought for the day

There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan.
