Page 2 Wednesday, January i i, 2012 The Adams County Record 2012 is going to be a nightmare ride Dear Editor, Overwhelming negativ- ity limits any optimism I have for the world econo- my as we enter 2012! I'm old enough to remember how utterly decimated from war the world was as it entered the mid 1940s. It recurs like a hazy, unclear nightmare I'm destined to eternally revisit; too psychologi- cally awful to be precise in my mind, because of the immensity and com- pleteness of its grotesque global impact. I'm now reliving that history through memo- ry of my parents and grandparents as an unwilling, reluctant and mentally captive pas- senger on an ethereal "night train" that travels its familiar route to hor- ror and death back in time. I'm a terrified pas- senger, witnessing again what we did to ourselves; the self-destruction and genocide of fellow human beings and societies that occurred just in my life- time. Everything began with economics and pov- Dear Editor, I would like to thank all of the City, County and State employees who do such good work. They keep the roads and other infrastructure going so that we can all do what we all need to do. Norah York @ Dear Editor, Council is a city of pot- holes and bumps, but it is also a city of compassion l . erty, then hatred and War. From Martin Weiss PhD and Paul B. Farrell of Wall Street Journal MarketWatch: By 2020 "warfare will define human life," while global population is on its way toward its explosion from 7 billion to 10 billion. For millions of people, war- fare defines their lives now, doesn't it? Food, water, energy, jobs and shelter; the world is run- ning out of all of these resources. And then, of course, there's always religion. Christine Lagarde the head of the International Monetary Fund believes, "The world economy is in a dangerous situation." Other European" heads of state don't even try to disguise their apprehen- sion that the European Union is on the prec- ipice of collapse. They understand and the U.S. Government understands that, at the very least, a very deep, long reces- sion, and maybe a lot worse, would be imme- diately upon us. This EU collapse could complete- ly wipe out Europe's big- and caring. There is no way I can properly thank all those foils who are friends of Anneliese. Our daughter and son both pleaded with Anneliese and myself to move to Boise with them, but we refused. Anneliese considered Council her real home, not just a house. The inhabitants of Council, were not just people, but are family. I want to thank everyone who attended PUBLIC DENTURE Repairs? Denture service at your door! gest, strongest banks... and then oursl And now there is China which sees the wheels coming off its once rapidly expanding economy. Beijing (AP) Joe McDonald -- "The International Monetary Fund warned Tuesday that China's banks face growing risks that might hamper growth, add- ing to concern about the world's second-larg- est economy Bank of America is now a $5.00 stock and many other US banks and other financial institutions could fail if Europe self- destructs. The American middle- class is an inconvenient reality which wealthy corporations want to eventually eliminate. They want to replace it with the economically poor "service-class," which will work for mini- mum wage. Worldwide, there is a growing anger at those who ignited this escalating inferno that will eventually be recog- nized as "class warfare." N~w M~adows her memorial service and those who were not able to be there. In addition I want to offer a special thanks to the EMT per- sonnel, Doctors, nurses and other health provid- ers who made her fmal days comfortable. For her special close friends, there is no possible way to thank them for all their efforts and mostly just for being true friends. Fred, Christan and Erika Turner @ Dear Editor, I would like to thank the committee for the Council Quilt Show, 2011. 'o,:' - I supported the quilt show when I purchased a few raffle tickets for the lovely quilt that they had created. I was never so surprised to get a phone call from Penny informing me that I was the win- ner!! The quilt is lovely and I will cherish it highly. I am so delighted and would like to thank all of the quilters who worked on the project. Each time I buy a raffle ticket or help with some other fundraising effort, I try to remember that I am also supporting our com- munity at large. The Quilt Show brings a lot of visitors to Council each year and I appreci- ate their efforts. Nancy L. Lane Think of us when filling your prescriptions. Your hometown pharmacy.

Fake notice cards have been coming in the mail to people in this area that offer to renew or start subscriptions to various magazines. The notices say they are offering a dis- counted rate when actual- ly the price is higher than you would pay directly to the magazine. Not only that, but this company will try to get away with billing you twice in hopes that busy people will for- get they already paid. come from "Publishers Billing Assoc." out of Reno, Nevada. They may also use the name "Publisher's Billing Agency." Les Russell brought in several of the notices to the Record office on Monday. He received five of them in one day! This scare is going on all over the country. KGO TV in San Francisco investigat- ed such notices and found that they don't come from a real billing company. Payments in their investi- gation went to P.O. boxes in Capitola, Las Vegas and San Francisco. "You don't owe any owe," said Joe Ridout" from Consumer Action. " Ridout says rogue com- . panics are skimming your subscription fees: "They falsely claim or insinu- ate that they're affiliated with Harpers or the New Yorker," said Ridout. *But ' actually they're cannibal- izing the revenue stream ' of this magazine publish- ~ er because they take so much of the subscription ' price." These scammers some- how obtain subscriber ' lists from magazines, and ' then try to trick those' people with fake bills. The lesson here is to money whatsoever and always subscribe directly it's really just a scamwith your magazine, and trying to trick you into read any notices you get Notices received locally paying money you don't in the mail very c~refully.

They actually hold that much combined, not individually. The caption for the photo with our story about the Children's Community Choir, Jackie Herold should have been listed as the soloist for the Community Choir, while Maddie and Autumn Herold were soloists for the Youth Choir. December 28, 2011 In the May section of the year in review, we said Kevin Gray was chosen to fill the vacant Central Council Zone school board seat until the next elec- tion. This was incorrect. Debbie Paradis was reappointed to that seat in October after no one else in the zone could be found to fill it. Gray is help- ing the board, ad hoc, as a policy advisor on "StudentsComeFirst." This was approved by an informal consensus vote, but Gray is not a board member. January 4, 2012 Last week, we incorrectly said that Anneliese Turner was born in 1926. She was born in 1936.
