As parents we just want the very best for them. Even when we punish them, it's because we love them. How often did you hear from your parents, " I am doing this because I love you!"? In Proverbs 4:10-13 our Heavenly Father does the same thing. "My child, listen to me and do as I say, and you will have a long, good life. I will teach you wis- dora's ways and lead you in straight paths. If you live a life guided by wisdom, you won't limp or stumble as you run. Carry out my instruc- tions; don't forsake them. Guard them, for they will lead you to a fulfilled life." He knows His children and He is speaking to each of us. Telling each of us that he wants the 00Council Senior Center Needs You very best for us. He sees our tears, our pain, our disappointments and keeps telling us to please listen and stay on the straight path so we won't fall or stumble. God's wisdom and knowledge is far beyond what we think we know. He is a loving Father that sent his only Son to die for us. He will walk with us and talk to us every- day ff we let him. Today could be your day to hear His voice. Rejoice that He calls you His child and LISTEN! by Tifani Holden I want to thank the" individual ill the community who domted a ham for our Chrstmas dinner, and Jaret at US Bank for 2Lhe poinsettias that our senDrs got to take home aft dinner, and the conmunity choir for the worderful Christmas cards.

It is called "One Away." Perhaps you may have seen ads on television, but you most likely haven't been exposed to them unless you have been involved in the National Council on Aging or a similar group. In this time of budget cuts it's important our congressmen and women not overlook the needs of the senior population. I would encourage all of you to visit their website at http://www. congress, and support the continuance of this important legislation for our country's senior population.

Coke or Pepsi? by Dale sk In the past, the subject of vending machines and their contents at Council High School has led to long discussions at School Boal-d meetings. At the January 9 School Board meeting, Superintendent Murray Dalgleish said that five years ago the school signed a contract with Coke. That contract has now expired. At the time the school contracted with Coke, Pepsi had pulled all of their vending machines out of schools, but now the company has reentered that market. Dalgleish is exploring options as to which company will offer the best deal for the school. In the past, Pepsi was yielding $10,000 per year, including $5,000 in scholarships. So far, Mr. Dalgleish is leaning toward Pepsi, but will explore all options. Whichever the choice, Dalgleish said that there will be no sugared drinks in the machines, but a variety of sport drinks, water, juices, etc. will be offered. Burial Seces - Cmation Services .
