'tyityay Speaks" Kindness during recent ioss appreciated
Spilyay Tymoo would like to
let all the boys and girls who are
in the Armed Forces know that
we are proud of them and fully
support their efforts in this time
of disrupt in the Iraq-Kuwait
situation. We want them to
know that there are a lot of
people who fully support them.
It's hard to face situations
such as this when the young
boys and girls have to face war.
It's too late to turn back now as
things have gotten underway
with the "fighting in the Far
East. No matter how hard it is
to face we should all stick
together and back up our Armed
Forces.. ..that is if you are not a
Saddam follower.
Sometimes I think all these
anti-war demonstrators are sent in by Saddam to disrupt all the
people of the U.S., and believe me some are real suckers. Those
professional demonstrators could make Saddam look like a hero.
Everyone is against war but lets face it, we're in now and we've
go to do whatever there is to do. I praise all those parents who have
children in the service and say they are against war but are in full
support of their children who are involved in the "Desert Storm."
Many of them have experienced times like this themselves during
the WWII, Korean and the Vietnam wars. Many, many veterans
have feelings toward whats happening but they support the action
that is taking place at the present time.
Let's not let the boys and girls feel they are doing wrong in their
indeavors where ever they may be. Those demonstrators can cause
a big problem and I feel they are playing right into Saddams hand.
So I say down with those anti-war demonstrators'. Because, many
of us have relatives who are involved now and all we can do is hope
and pray for a fast end to the situation and everyone comes out
well. Ahh-Nahh-Chi-Toon.

To the Editor,
To all those who were so sup
portive and kind during the loss of
our loved one:
We were all saddened when God
called Edward Henry, Sr. home.
We know he will be missed by all
who knew him as a father, grand
father to many, uncle to many, a
friend, a relative, a beloved brother
and a dear husband. He was loved
by all who knew him.
Thanks for the beautiful letters
of condolence, the many sympathy
cards, words of encouragement,
the acts of kindness, the beautiful
flowers, and all the necessary
services rendered from the heart
during the time of grief. All the
love and concern shown in many
ways is greatly appreciated. The
list would be so long to name all
who were so supportive to us. We
just want everyone to know, we
thank all of you for all that was
done to help us through this sad
time of our lives. Your kindness
Thanks for tournament support
To the Editor,
We'd like to give acknowledge
ment to all the sponsors, saying
thanks. God bless you all, for your
support to this annual event for the
kids. It's people like you folks, that
makes the activities worth-while,
giving the kids something to look
forward to on weekends. It's too
bad there can not be more put out
for the youth of our community, to
try keeping them off the streets.
Regardless of the outcome of the
Lil Britches Tournament, January
12-13. 1991. held at Warm Springs
Community center. I'd like to say
to those who all participated,
You're all champions. Just to make
the effort to practice and play is
great. Being able to belong and
participate makes it worth-while,
to be able to look forward to
something to do each week. I
commend the other coaches also,
for taking the time and effort to
work with the children.
Just making it to practice is a
responsibility in itself. Which I
commend our players of the We
Baaad and Roadrunners 12 and
under teams, also to the parents
who support their kias in these
activities. We don't win them all,
but we have fun trying, giving the
kids experience and knowledge of
the sport. A special thanks to
Caroline Tohct. For the small give
away for the visiting coaches, on
behalf of her grandchildren who
participated in the tournament.
May he above watch and guideyou
Tournament Directors

will remain in our hearts forever.
There will always be good memo
ries of our loved one for his kind
ness, concern for others, for his
enjoyment to spend time at the
YMCA among friends, watching
family youth participate in sports
and all the good times he shared
with everyone.

substance abuse, cause it just
makes things worse."
Again, my sincere apologies.

The Professor was demonstrating before his class the ill-effects of
alcohol. He took a worm and dropped it into a glass of water and
the worm continued to wiggle about. Then he dropped the worm
into a glass of alcohol and immediately the worm died. Then the
Professor asked the class what that proved? A young man from the
back of the room replied, "Well Sir, that just proves that people
who drink don't have worms." YIKES
