Patchwork

By Donna Smith Ammons

Several weeks ago, a large flat package was delivered to the back door by the postwoman.

“What did you order?” hubby-dear asked.

”Nothing,” I replied. “Anyway, it’s addressed to you.” He got a puzzled look on his face and after I gave him the scissors, he proceeded to open it.

He pulled out a metal white sign trimmed in green. It read “Ammons Airport 5LS9”.

Ammons Airport was founded by his father, Cliff Ammons and is still in operation on the lake.

Hubby is chairman of the Many Hart Airport committee and is a former pilot. He takes his job seriously and has been instrumental in making the airport better.

WHAT HAPPENED?

By Pete Abington

At the stage of this edition of the paper, we know that decisions have been made with this election. It has been repeated many times as James Carville stated “It’s the economy, stupid..” If that is true, our Republican Congress and President’s policies should meet everyone’s favor. The economy has hardly ever been better than it is today and unemployment is lower than we would have ever dreamed. Black unemployment is low and we’ve had much regulation stopped. They are trying to control illegal immigration. Our nation is doing well. Finally, certainly our next move is to get our deficit down but income up is more than ever before in this nation and we should be able to deal with that soon. Nevertheless, social issues seem to be what is bothering people, according to the media.
