I remember doing an article earlier this year about bullying but I think that this week, I need to go deeper into it. We all know that bullying is wrong but why does it still occur? Maybe those who bully can’t forgive others for their mistakes. Maybe those who bully have problems of their own and they don’t know who to take their problems out on. None the less, BULLYING IS WRONG!

As the world turns, we celebrate another Earth Day.  Did you plant a tree?  Recycle a water-bottle, or walk to work?  Did you at least stop and smell the roses?  Whatever you did, thank you!  The support of Earth Day has definitely grown and rightfully so.  The Earth is our home and we need to take care of it any way we can.  But the Earth has another precious resource that needs protecting, maintaining and celebrating: YOU!  When was the last time you celebrated your worth?  When was the last time you took time to be thankful for the amazing person you are?  Have you forgotten the value of you?  Maybe you’ve been too busy?  Well, take time today, right now even, and celebrate you.  I know life’s not perfect, not even close, but like Earth Day, with celebration also comes a dedication to living a better life; to not only preserving our future, but learning to enjoy the journey along the way.

Have you ever had your nerves get the better of you?  Don’t feel bad, everybody has had experiences where their nerves of steel suddenly turned into nerves of aluminum.  From sports to special occasions, we’ve all choked or broke down in critical moments where our nervousness became our weakness.  The list seems endless of when our nerves made us swerve off the roads of life and get stuck in the ruts of regret: Game time, test time, talks, speeches, seminars, unpaid bills, a new job, dating, confrontation, interviews, fear of failure, flying, performances, and proposals, etc., etc.!  If only we could have a proxy for our missing moxie in those moments!  How do we get past our unnerving fears and conquer our cold feet with courage when it’s our time to shine?

Saturday night 3 men, who were illegally fishing on private property, were stopped by Morgan Deputies.  The records were run on all three men, when it was found that one of the men was wanted for 4 warrants for his arrest. The man took off running, and a foot chase evolved. The man ran across the river. The officers called on the state troopers and a canine unit to help in the pursuit. The man was arrested later when the deputies pulled over a vehicle from the same county as the man wanted for the warrants was from. The man in the vehicle was actually the friend called on to pick up his friend who was in hiding. The man driving the vehicle was not arrested as he provided information to police, but the friend who fled from authorities was arrested.
