Alvin & Nancy Engelke attended the Jackson County Jr. Fair pageant in Ripley Saturday evening. The other day Nancy, who was at the time shopping with Jane, sat on a chair not realizing that the chair was on a platform with wheels. In slow motion the chair went over and Nancy fell hurting her arm which she had extended to protect her hip. Some items in the store fell too but nothing was broken and all should be well before too long.

The folks down at Mister Bee Potato Chips decided, after a 6% drop in sales, that they should ignore "the suggestions" from the Grease Police and go back to the original recipe as PC potato chips just don't rate. This example should make it clear that the various county commissions who name members to the board of health should name leaders who will stand up to the beaurocrats who currently infest those places. It is long past time that the health department be made to do the job it was set up to do, namely deal with public health problems such as lice, scabies, venereal diseases, tuberculosis and threats to human life and agriculture (such as West Nile virus) by Mohammedan and other terrorist groups. An effective board could fire those are more concerned about taking away private property rights (private property tobacco use) and closing businesses such as Mr. Bee, Wendy's etc just to show how much power they have.
