    SUA MEMO TO ALL June 9th 2016

      I sent this to all the Mods this morning and I’m sharing with all of you. Last evening we had an issue that revolved around a word. That word was “testicles.” What followed was everything I try to avoid and, in this case, John threatened to leave and quite a few others defended the joke. It was used in a humorous manner that was probably a lot funnier at Chaser’s Lounge where John first told it and I for one did not see anything Foul or Pornographic in the joke. Someone disagreed and...

    1992 – Eco-Religion–earth With a Capital E

    By Joel C. Gerlach Earth day has propelled little Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, into the national limelight. On a hilltop outside the village, four women and two men observed Earth Day in a religious ceremony, which included prayers to Mother Earth. Selena Fox served as the priestess for the occasion. In solemn tones she prayed, “Sacred Earth Power, bring healing to Planet. Earth.” Time magazine reported the event, noting that the ceremonies were part of a growing US spiritual movement: Goddess...

    For Those of You Who Say You Won’t Vote

      By C Howard Diaz I think there is no better day than today to talk about whether Americans should choose to not vote in the upcoming election. Why today? Because today is Memorial Day, a day we as a nation set aside to honor the thousands of those in the military, both male and female, who have given their life in the cause of freedom. Imagine that, they died for all of us. They made the ultimate sacrifice so we can exercise our freedom and vote. If it weren’t for the thousands who have...

    KBEE’S Chapter 1 – Arriving at Camp

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz The 747 turned its nose down for its landing at Portland International.  Heather pushed her tanned face up against the airplane window to get a better look at the land below.  Never had she seen so much green, or so many trees. “Isn’t this going to be great?” she asked her classmate Jason who was sitting next to her.  Her breath fogged up the window. “I’m so glad I was picked to go to Camp K-Bee.  Aren’t you?” Jason, with his nose buried in his...

    KBEE’S Chapter 2 – The Lodge Meeting

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz  When Heather arrived at the lodge, introductions were underway.  Counselor Barry and the rest of the team were telling their background.  Heather thought most of the counselors looked young, maybe only 17 or 20 years old.  Their job consisted of looking out for the kids and making sure no one got into trouble.  Then there were teachers from all over the world. Heather found a spot to sit next to Jason.  “I thought we were getting away from teachers,”...

    KBEE’s Chapter 3 – Learning More

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz   The next few days were a little better and brought a series of adventures.  The kids were broken into small groups by tent number.   Heather’s tent was paired with Jason’s.  These groups were set to a series of challenges.  They explored various rocks and plants, learning their names and variety. They then had to close their eyes and tell what item they held by touch alone. They played a game the counselor called, ‘tree hug’ where one child...

    KBEE’S Chapter 4 – The Lumber Mill

    by Suzanne Hauser and C Howard Diaz   The next day the children boarded the bus for a trip to the mill. Heather didn’t want to join them, but camp rules kept her from staying behind.  Her dislike for Jonny grew, even though they did not find the compass in Jonny’s things. The mill turned out to be an awesome place.  It really was a huge wood factory like Counselor Barry had said, Heather thought.  It had it’s own lake where they kept the cut down trees until they could be milled or...
