Issue Date: November 17, 2021

Editor:

Christmas is still a long way off, but it came for me on Nov. 6th. That was the day a large group of youth and adults from the local Lutheran Church came to rake and take my leaves. I am 87 years old, and have had several heart surgeries, with another heart surgery scheduled for Dec. 15, their help was greatly appreciated.

They would not take anything for their hard work, saying they do it to give back to the community and just help senior citizens. They certainly made my heart feel good. This church group needs to be thanked repeatedly.

I am sure all churches do things for others that we need to be thanking them often. Even non church groups like the lion's club, help others. If your able I recommend you join one of the groups helping others, you will receive a special kind of reward.

Even with the problems we have in the world, isn't it great to live in the U.S.A.

I will end this letter by saying thanks again to the Coleman Lutheran church group. You made me feel so good, I can never express it fully in writing.

Robert Blackbourn

Senior Citizen Coleman

Dear Editor:

This is coming to you from my kitchen table. I have spent many an evening there, with friends, discussing and solving the problems of the world. My latest rant goes like this:

I feel we, as a society, give persons that commit crimes both large and small WAY too much attention, it creates a sense of celebrity that both mesmerizes and entices our youth, because they do not always differentiate between fame and infamy. It also creates an atmosphere in which it is almost impossible for someone charged to obtain an unbiased jury pool. I should state that I do not have a dog in this fight, as I have never been arrested or caused anyone else to be arrested.

I wish for the attention spent on the perpetrator, to go to the victims of the crime, no matter how old, what color or ethnicity the victim is. It shouldn't matter if the are rich and high society or some poor soul addicted to pain killers living on the street. (Why do we say addicts of pain killers are victims and then arrest them for being addicted, but that's another rant for another time) All that should matter is that they are human beings, just like you and me. They are someone's son or daughter, maybe a mother or father, brother, or sister, and they are valuable simply because they are.

I am not sure if it is still the case but, in the UK, and I also believe in Canada (please correct me if I am wrong, but it doesn't change my suggestion), that once a person of interest is identified, there is a news blackout. The media are not allowed to report on the case until the trial concludes. This takes away much of the attention from the perpetrator and allows for a fairer trial. Because, as is so frequently the case, the charged are tried and convicted in the court of public opinion, they can rarely live down the accusations thrown at them, even when they are found innocent. I believe this would be a much more appropriate way to deal with the issue.

Since we as humans, get some kind of sick, voyeuristic thrill, watching someone else's troubles, knowing, or believing, we are immune, the media can run on all it wants after everything it over.

Yours sincerely, The Fixer12

November's Autumn

The gray clouds take over the sky

Autumn's dying and winter is near,

What once was life falls asleep

Chased into hiding by cold and fear.



Where once the songbirds sang

On the boughs in the trees,

Only silence looms there now

An utter silence that no one sees.



And here I sit trying to remember

A poem I wrote long ago,

But only the memories come to me

And the gray clouds start to snow.



November's autumn is sad and lonely

A lot like love in a way,

For you can't give life back to a blossom

Or the love you lost yesterday.

Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee



We Come to Your House

We come to your house with Thanksgiving,

We come to your house with praise.

Giving glory to God our Father,

And His dear Son all our days.

Singing praises to God forever,

Giving thanks to His precious Son.

For giving Himself on Calvary's tree,

For that includes everyone.

Give Glory, Praise & Thanksgiving

Give glory to God each morning,

From dawn till setting sun.

Sing praises to God,

From dawn's early light,

Until each day is done.

Reflect on the Savior's goodness,

His gentleness, kindness and care.

Remember to thank Him for blessings

As you bow your head in prayer.

For all that you are,

And all that you have,

And all that you ever will be

Are all gifts to you

From our Father above,

For now and eternity.

Poems by Joyce Bedora,

Krakow, formerly of Peshtigo
