Enjoy your life of adventure

February 21, 2013

I read a great quote by Maya Angelou recently, “Because of our routines, we forget that life is an ongoing adventure”. This made me think of one of the most used complaints of all (in a whiny voice), “but I don’t have enough time.........”
The truth is that we control where our time goes. Time is a gift that we so often take for granted. We get caught up in the “busyness of our routines” that we rarely stop to take a look at where we are spending (wasting) this precious gift.

Old Waverly golf instructor giving kids lessons for life

When VJ Trolio first met Jonathan Randolph when the now professional golfer was 14 years old, he saw the natural talent Randolph possessed.
He also saw Randolph make common mistakes and face the same adversities all young people eventually face.
Like countless others who have been instructed by Trolio, the game taught Randolph about life and how to achieve the goals he set for himself.

Still time to sign up for “Bridges out of Poverty” class

February 20, 2013

There will be a very important community training seminar in Starkville one week from today.
Attendance from West Point’s community leaders could lead to a significant impact on poverty and the town’s economy.
“Bridges out of Poverty” is an organization that has taught communities that benefits and effectiveness of empowering those in poverty rather than just writing checks to different charities.
Lynn Phillips-Gaines spoke to the West Point Rotary Club last week about the “Bridges” program and the impact it has had on Starkville.

Davis speaks during Clergy Week

February 20, 2013

Jeanette Unger was in charge of the Wednesday’s program at the West Point Civitan Luncheon Club. February is Clergy Month for the Civitan Clubs. She presented Rev. Steve Davis, pastor of 1st Presbyterian Church FPC., and his wife Sharon.
“I had a completely different idea of what to talk about when I got here today but the Civitan Creed made me rethink what I wanted to say,” explained Davis. “Sometimes we just need to be willing to go in the direction we are led. You are one of the few groups who I feel truly are led by the idea of Christian love and service.”

Dill speaks to NSDAR about harvesting methane from trash

February 16, 2013

Former Mayor and Chairman of the Golden Triangle Regional Solid Waste Management Authority, Kenny Dill, spoke to the Horseshoe Robertson Chapter of the NSDAR during their monthly meeting at the Bryan Public Library Wednesday.
“You really never think about making money from garbage, but the Golden Triangle Regional Solid Waste Management Authority has been doing just that since October of 2011,” explained Dill. “We take garbage and collect the methane gas that is produced and sell it to TVA. They convert the gas to make clean, green electricity.”
