Halloween - November 2, 2006

Halloween events in Calhoun County were a masterpiece of creativity, cooperation and fun for everyone! Problems were minimal and participation was at an all time high. It was a family event at each community and there were plenty of treats and good experiences. There were beautiful, ugly, scary and funny costumes. Even the lines at the haunted houses were tolerated as adults visited and children consumed goodies and chased around the parking lots. One church was the site for a 12-hour lock in for teens. Other churches had booths at the community events. Volunteers from one end of the county helped other communities. Calhoun hospitality was everywhere.

Everyone said, “It is for the children.”

Let us keep this thought in mind as we approach election day next Tuesday. We have a privilege and obligation to vote. “It is for the children.” We must look at the long range effect of who we elect for office. Our children will live with the choices we make on Tuesday. If we want to keep Calhoun County on the map for the children, we must be involved now. There is still time to listen, read, study and pray about how we will cast our vote.

It is too late to register for this election, but you can make a commitment to yourself to register for the next election. If we care, we can be known as the county that has the largest percentage of voter participation.

If you are registered, you can vote early at the courthouse, or at your polling place on Tuesday. The new machines are easy to use and there is also confidential help available. I almost had to call for help until I read the instructions a second time!

Yes, I have already voted. Please join me in caring about our county, state, nation and God’s world.
