Column: Observe World AIDS Day

Next Wednesday, Dec. 1, is World AIDS Day. It would be great if we could say that the threat of HIV and AIDS is over, but that isn't the case in the United States and in many other less developed countries. AIDS/HIV remains an enormous health-care problem. It is present in every corner of the world, infecting more than 40 million men, women and children today. Approximately 95 percent of all AIDS cases occur in the world's poorest countries, such as sub-Saharan Africa.

Always love thy neighbor as thyself

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Take time to give thanks

We are now entering the holiday season, which traditionally kicks off when we celebrate Thanksgiving. I feel we should remind ourselves of the importance of this time of giving thanks. Living in the United States is one of the most blessed opportunities anyone can experience. As we observe and enjoy the benefits of this great nation, we can only say thanks to the one who provides us with such bountiful blessings.

In the past five years I have had to cut down six trees on my property. For one reason or the other they had all died. I've been able to get five of them down without incident. But one was a problem.
