This section is for all us seniors in high school. It’s almost here guys, GRADUATION! It’s so crazy to think that we are close to the beginning of our lives. But I was thinking about something the other day, how many of us wanted to grow up really fast? I’ll admit, I was one of those five year olds who wanted to turn eighteen so I can make my own rules, my own money, and call my own shots.

When was the last time you truly felt gratitude for someone or something in your life?  Gratitude is more than an obliged gesture of Thank You.  It’s a heartfelt feeling that adds depth and breadth to your appreciation.  However, when we get too busy it’s easier to forget to be grateful.  We can become blind to the wonderful gifts given to us each day.  When we forget or forgo showing our gratitude to ourselves and to others, it can quickly drag us down into a rut of ingratitude.

Bowling: The Morgan Stars had a great time competing in the Snowball Classic Winter Games.  Throughout the Month of January, our athletes had an opportunity to compete in singles, doubles, team, and unified team tournaments.  The athletes won a lot of medals, forged new friendships, and most importantly, had a lot of fun!   We would like to extend a special thanks to all of our parents, families, and especially our amazing Coaches, Keith Orton, Misty Spendlove, and Dennis Peterson.  Thanks to the coaches for donating so much time, talent, skill, and patience.  It was amazing to watch the athletes as they learned new skills and accomplished so much.

Have you ever considered how you could make a difference in Morgan County?  Now is your chance.  This year there will be elections for three council seats and three school board seats in the county.  While the presidential election may be catching all of the headlines, the local positions in Morgan County have, perhaps, a greater effect on life in the county than any of the national seats.  The following positions are up for election on the county council:

This month Christians and other Deity devoted denominations began celebrating Lent.  Traditionally, Lent is the forty days before Easter.  It is symbolic of the Biblical account of Jesus’ journey into the wilderness to fast and pray for forty days in preparation for His temptations by the Devil, His suffering in the garden of Gethsemane, His cruel crucifixion and His exalted resurrection; which also leads us to the celebration we know as Easter.  During Lent a person will choose to give up something of significant value in their lives--or something that may not really be valuable, but which a person has placed a value on.  It is a personal and usually private sacrifice not only to increase piety, but to remind oneself that to truly live a more excellent life there are things that must be chosen to be left behind to achieve it--bad habits, sweets, laziness, poisonous people, places and patterns that are unhealthy and unworthy of our time and energy.  They choose to sacrifice them, at least for forty days, so they can excel and learn to live a better, healthier, and happier life.

Privacy issues are in the news nearly every week.  Whether it is Google changing its policies, or new legislation restricting the use of personal information.  Privacy legislation is often the bane of genealogical research, however, and it is also often more public relations than good public policy.
