There were many people who showed us a lot of things about safety. Some of the things I learned were not to use tobacco, four- wheeler safety and being careful near farm machines.

Perhaps the Roodfest participants gained some appreciation of the problems the rain and mud associated with a flood can bring. We know a little bit about mud in this area. The photograph associated with this notebook was taken earlier this year in northern Nuckolls County. The county patrol operator was stuck in the middle of a road. A crane and crawler-type tractor had to be called to remove the machine. Though rond crews have been working at top speed, damaged caused by last year's severe winter and this summer's wet weather has not been repaired. While looking through family photographs this weekend with my parents, Rita and I came across a number taken in September of injuries and deaths on America's farms. The 1993 theme "Safety and Health . .. Agriculture's future" promotes the initiative that ev- eryone in America should be concerned about agricultural production and it's longevity and strength in the global arerm. Each farmer and rancher in the U.S. now feeds nearly 100 per- sons and the emerging technolo- gies would indicate that our fu- ture looks bright for expanding this milestone. 1973.That year flood problems began Labor Day weekend and As we mark this 50th anni- continuedintoOetober.Oneofthepicturessh°wedpe.°,pleer°ssing versary of National Farm Safety the foot bridge which connected Brodstone Memorial Fseld and and Health Week, every U.S. Superior High School.

LitUe Blue Christian no longer pays in America. Our courts must be instructed to hand out penalties in keeping with the crime. Rather than being sent to resorts with golf courses, the criminals should be sent to labor camps. Murdere and drug dealers deserve a swift death sentence. Justice needs to be dispensed swiftly and the juries be composed of common people who know what it is like to be a victim. Bail and parole systems which turn criminals onto the streets must be changed. Civil rights and liberalism is not an excuse for murder. As a nation we are ready for a change. This was demonstrated in northern Florida when, in the wake of a vicious murder, police rounded up scores of young black men, all with police records, for questioning. As expected some members of our society's liberal element protested the action as a violation of the young men's civil fights but the poor, beleaguerb.d black people in the public housing projects from which the men were taken found nothing wrong with the police tactics. They have long known what we arerjUSt now learning. It is no fun to live as the victims. Dunklau, Dorothy Eddy, Eva nethHamel. Murphy and B. A. Eddy, super- Ten Years Ago intendent.

It was a restriction he had placed on himself, because of adverse consequences, which determined his limits. I thought it was quite a system. And I was reminded of the importance of self discipline in our lives too. We have the ability to make choices which will bring more pleasure to our lives. Take for example the method is which we chose to speak. Once we have an understanding of how important our words are we watch more closely to make them appropriate. Jesus told his disciples, "now what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out defiles him." That makes words quite important. The words I chose have the power to corrupt my life. In the same way the dog in Topeka chose to stay within the confines of his yard, so I have the opportunity to chose words which will enhance the quality of my life, and deter undesirable repercus- sions later.
