We had a computer "flu" at city hall last week. It seems a virus was passed around to some of the computers. Since none are linked to the internet, it had to be a disk brought in by an unsuspecting carrier. Since the only person who travels around with disks is yours truly, the cul- prit was quickly identified. For an invention that is supposed to make my life easier, this one finds numerous ways to dump on me! Luckily I'm taking Vernon SanSouci's class at the high school and hope to not be so ignorant in the future. (The girls at city hall hope so, too!) I hope all of you took the opportunity to attend the "Meet the Candidates" night at the school on April 1st. It is especially important to understand the issues in this election. The bal- lot language will be confusing to some, please get a copy beforehand and ask questions if you don't understand it.

Sometimes we wish we could stash away on board a private jet or hop onto the back of a magical giant condor to live this moment as captured by John Gillespie Magee, Jr. "Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds--and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of--wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hoviring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or even eagle flew-- And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high-untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God." But we can't. We can only dream and imag- ine what it must have felt like to be so engulfed in the rapture of being surrounded by the beau- ty and magnificence as was described--anc to reach out and touch the face of God--or can we slip the surly bonds of earth? Go to the Lord in prayer and discover all the promises waiting for you. And attend the church of your choice. You are welcome in the First United Methodist Church of Bourbon. Sunday School is at 9:30 a.m. and Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. Have a blessed day and week and may you find moments of peace right here on earth.
