LaFollette Elementary PTO would like to thank Holston Gas for donating a propane tank for the fall carnival. We also would like to thank LaFollette Sport Shop for their kind donation and Elisha Tiller with Ribbons and Curls for her donation. We the PTO do truly appreciate it. We also want to thank the parents that made crafts for us to sell. We had parents to donate and we appreciate you all too. We thank each and every one that came out to the carnival and purchased these items from us or donated money or bought a raffle ticket from us. Thanks again from everyone on the PTO.

Open Arms Ministry held their annual Scott County Fall Telethon this past Saturday in Huntsville, raising over $3,300 to help feed the hungry. We would like to thank all the musicians and singers who came out to sing for the telethon.  Also, thank you to the following businesses for their contributions: Pizza Plus, Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza, Lee’s Famous Fried Chicken, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Krystal, Sonic, and Food City of LaFollette. In addition, we would also like to thank all the folks who provided the good food and delicious desserts for the telethon.  Thanks goes to Hugh and Donna Laxton for doing an outstanding job answering the telephones and recording pledges. A very special thank you goes to the wonderful staff of MBR-TV 5 for the use of their fine facilities, and to video engineer Art Gault for his assistance.

There are simply no words to express our thanks to all the folks who worked so hard by taking out the trash, decorating the studio, etc.  One last note of sincere appreciation goes to Rev. James West, along with his wife, Joan, who made all the arrangements, including the food and musicians for the telethon. Without their assistance, none of the telethon would have happened.

In closing, we would like to thank you, the public, for your continued support of our work. We realize that the unemployment rate is high, yet despite these tough times, you reached deep in your pockets to help your fellow neighbor. The Lord will bless you for that donation based solely on faith in a multitude of ways. You simply can’t out give the Lord; and remember, each dollar we collect can buy seven cans of food for the less fortunate. May the Lord bless you and your families as we give thanks for all He has done.

Sincerely,

Diana Walker

The Pregnancy Help Center’s “God’s Little Punk In” Walk-A-Thon was a huge success with Evelyn Herman raising the most money in honor of her “Little Punkin” granddaughter. Costumer winners among the walkers were Sara Grace Faught, age 3; adults, Jeanne Smith and Evelyn Herman.

The event attracted the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile, which gave out stickers and whistles to the children.

The Pregnancy Center sincerely thanks all the walkers who participated, and all those who pledged support of the Walk-A-Thon. The Center is located in the Old West LaFollette Elementary School on Beech Street is available to area mothers who are in need of infant and toddler supplies.

On Nov. 2, I voted on a Constitutional Amendment that says: “The citizens of this state shall have the personal right to hunt and fish, subject to reasonable regulations and restrictions prescribed by law. The recognition of this right does not abrogate any private or public property rights, nor does it limit the states power to regulate commercial activity. Traditional manners and means may be used to take non-threatened species.”

Is this the end of hunting and fishing licenses? Is this personal right to last all the days of the person’s life regardless of future citizenship status? What caught my attention was it started with the word citizens and during its course changed to personal right. As I read the amendment it caused me to remember reading Federalist Paper number 42 and a section on confusion of language where the use of the words citizen, people and inhabitants and other terms are discussed with dismay as being used together in the fourth article of the Articles of Confederation. What I voted on was the value of the words presented as I understood them to mean. And whatever, it means it is now the Supreme law of the state.
