Northwood Drive-In Movie Night
Northwood Advent Christian Church is hosting another in its series
of summer community events with a Drive-Inn Movie Night Saturday,
August 17, 113 School St. This event is free and is open to
everyone. It will start at 7:45 pm with cartoons and comedy and the
main feature will start around 8:15 darkness permitting. The feature
film will be “The Blind Side,” a great flick for these summer days!
film is based on a true story. Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) knows
little about family. Less about football. What the homeless teen
knows are the streets and projects of Memphis. Well-to-do Leigh Anne
Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) knows little about his world. Yet when she
and Michael meet, he’s found a home. And the Tuohys have found
something just as life-changing: a beloved new son and brother. This
real-life story of family and of Michael’s growth into a blue-chip
football star will have you cheering with its mix of gridiron action
and heartwarming emotion. Share the remarkable journey of the
college All-American and first-round NFL draft pick who was a winner
before he ever stepped onto the playing field. Rated PG-13. Approx.
popcorn, refreshments and drinks will be provided. You can watch
from your car or bring a blanket, or lawn chairs to watch from the
lawn (don’t forget bug spray). If weather is bad all will be held
indoors starting at 7:45 pm August 17.
To The Editor
first time in awhile, I have a few minutes to respond to something
other than School Board issues. Two letters caught my eye and I want
to respond to them.
first one argues that “corporations are not people.” That is an
extreme liberal talking point that is saying therefore a corporation
should not be able to influence elections with their money. Of
course that same person would argue to infinity that it is alright
for unions and Planned Parenthood to spend their members money on
elections. Both are, in my opinion, made up of a bunch of people. If
“corporations are not people” then neither are unions and other such
other letter extolled the virtues of government. I cannot think of
one thing that our government does adequately, let alone well. The
Post Office needs hundreds of millions of dollars in bailout money
quarterly and should be disbanded. We have so abused Social Security
by using the money collected to curry favors from those who should
have no right to it that we now expect our children to pay for our
retirement. Sick! Since the Federal Government really got into it
our education system has deteriorated to where many third world
countries do a better job. Medicare and Medicaid are so rife with
corruption that they are always near insolvent. Welfare has created
a huge class of people who see no reason to work. Government cannot
protect our borders, hell they can’t even win a war. We haven’t won
a war or non-war since World War II. Our country is circling the
toilet and in my opinion Government and those that we have elected
to do our business are to blame. Ten years of not voting in nitwits
and lawyers would help lots.
