‘Do not call’ list does not work
I have called in to the “Do Not Call List” system at the State Attorney General’s Office and left my phone numbers in that system. It seems that the Attorney General’s Office can’t stop the calls from businesses. I have had a call from a cemetery firm, automobile firm, insurance company and a finance company.
I hope that anyone who reads this letter will call our representatives and to put a stop to this.
If you are tired of getting those unwanted calls, it is time that something be done about it. I put my phone numbers on the “do not call” list every three months and I still get the calls.

Christ first
President Andrew Johnson said he wasn’t inclined to pray for rattlesnakes, although they were around in abundance. Times haven’t changed much, have they? He also said:
“I do believe in Almighty God! And I believe also in the Bible. Let us look forward to the time when we can take the flag of our country and nail it below the Cross, and there let it wave as it waved in the olden times, and let us gather around it and inscribe for our motto: Liberty and Union, one and inseparable, now and forever,’ and exclaim ‘Christ first, our country next!’ ”
