John Wayne remarked once, "Tomorrow comes to us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands and hopes we've learnt something from yesterday." Those are the words I found in my "Wisdom of the West" book.


Then Ronald Reagan remarked, "While America's military strength is important, let me add here that I have always maintained that the struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one, at root it is a test of morals, will and faith." Surely my readers agree.

Folks, have you heard about the Wednesday Worry Club? A noted producer had an interesting way of "handling" all his worries. He decided to do all his worrying on one single day of the week, so he had what he calls his Wednesday Worry Club. If anything worries him on any other day, he writes it down and puts it in a box to be worried about on Wednesday. So when he opens the box on Wednesday, he finds most of the things that disturbed him have already been settled, but a few are still worrisome. So he puts them back in the box to be worried about the following Wednesday. By this whimsical, but practical method, he broke his worry habit.

Readers don't forget our men and women serving in Iraq still need our daily prayers. We appreciate their efforts.

Folks, did you know your boss may determine your salary, but you yourself determine your worth? To get more, make yourself worth more.

Surely you know your conscience is an inner voice that warns us someone is looking.

Some South Dakota Trivia. Gutzon Borglum was fired from the Stone Mountain Project in Georgia for temperamental outbursts as a result of unemployment. He was freed to accept the offer to carve Mt. Rushmore. While carving Rushmore, Borglum personally fired a worker for punching his son, Lincoln in the jaw. That worker was Korczak Ziolkowski who moved 14 miles down the road to begin carving Crazy Horse.

Steve Hemmingson of Sioux Falls, a well-known newsman, worked as an assistant undertaker.

Another definition for prune. It's a plum that has seen better days, then there's the expert that knows more and more about less and less. You all know a forger is a person that gives a check a bad name or a dogma is a puppy's mother.
