I read the article Jillian Smith wrote, and it was a very good article, although I would have handled it in a completely different way.
First of all if you want to talk about prejudice, it happens because of ignorance. Haven’t you noticed in today’s world, if someone does wrong, the matter isn’t bought up; the color is.
As I said in the last issue — change is coming to this article.
I have been using the term “shelf life” a lot in conversation lately — shelf life simply meaning the way we do things must come to an end and be changed or restock must occur.

For Rantoul Press
Because I had been speaking before the Rantoul Park District Board, a friend of mine asked me if I could request of the board that nets be added to the Maplewood Sports Complex basketball court.
The Friends of Rantoul Public Library’s bag o’ books sale is much more than just a bag of books.
It’s a bagful of travel, of mystery, of romance, of science. It offers hope, challenges and delights. A bag of books can introduce you to new authors and reacquaint you to long-time favorites.
To the editor:
In last week’s Press I wrote about grandmothers/great-grandmothers and many of their feelings about how their children had practically abandoned them.
I had a really good response. Many people told me they could relate.
I also had a visit from one of my readers who told me these women need to pray much harder than ever.
I am so honored to be invited to be the exhibiting artist for the C-U Annual Humanitarian Awards Celebration.
My exhibition will be titled “The Art of Living Within Cultures.” The Humanitarian Awards will be held Thursday, Sept. 25, at the I Hotel, 1900 S. First St. in Champaign.
If you truly want to succeed, make sure to build your foundation on the solid rock, Jesus Christ.
With Jesus as the foundation, you will not be easily persuaded to fall into the ways of the world.
Not only did our five foster children experience physical, sexual, emotional and mental abuse at the hands of their own families, as well as in other locations and placements, but they also had to contend with constantly changing schools, strangers in control of their lives and in some cases, even starvation.
I had a meeting with several grandmothers/great-grandmothers.
Many questions were asked, and the answers that the women gave brought some to tears.
I will try to tell the stories, but grab some tissues, just in case.
