BOX 426 LAYOUT EDITOR Manchester, GA 31816 Official Legal Orgwt for the City of Hogarm, ille ,000 At the newspaper we receive letters to the editor all the time. Some point out what a bad job we are doing, some point out what a good job we are doing, some just voice an opinion and the list goes on and on. Each of you has gotten a letter I'm sure. Some you like to read and some you would rather not. But you still open them and read them. Recently, while doing my Bible study, I was reading Matthew 28:20. When I'm a little down or something is going on in my life, that verse seems to help lift my spirits. If you do not know the verse, a portion of it reads: "Surely I am with you always." As I studied the verse and cross referenced it, I turned -- to the Internet as I often do you were too busy to talk with me. I noticed at lunch you looked aroun " maybe you just felt embarrassed to talk to me. You glanced three tables over and noticed some of your friends talking to me before they ate, but you wouldn't.

ALL of the major repeat- ing characters in Star Trek were human, with the excep- tion of green-blooded Speck, who was written as being half-human and half-Vulcan. Many Star Trek fans wanted to be Captain James Kirk because he was the one in command. But there was always a group of Star Trek fans, myself being one of them, that truly appreciated the character of Spock. Spock, a person who had long the disagreement becomes physical. If we could ever take emo- tions out of that equation, the root cause could typically be addressed. Spock did that. He was the calming influence that played foil to the emotional outbursts and actions of his human ship- mates - specifically Captain Kirk and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy. LEONARD NIMOY had a number of roles before Star Trek. Star Trek lasted a mere three years before being can- celled by NBC, which might go to indicate the leadership of NBC then was just as poor quality as it is today. After Star Trek was can- celed, Nimoy starred in other biography titled, "I Am Not Enterprise. Spock" in which he dealt with Unfortunately, Spock/ the issue.

I1 In the Hogansville Herald Compiled by Rob Richardson PREPARE TO PAY IT YOURSELF - The top story in the March 6, 1975 Hogansville Hera/d reflected the inflationary tone of the times. 'The city council voted hero Monday night to pass rate increases on gas and electricity on to their customers effective with the next billing. The decision to do so followed an explanation of the rate structures by city manager Adrian Wilborn." ,6, GOOD DEAL EMERGES - A local fundraiser was also worthy of the front page. "Although the economy is at an alltime high and prices are soaring, a person can still get a full course dinner at the low price of just $2 on the special day of Sunday, March 9 when once again the library science club will be serving a mouth- watering feast hero as the famous turkey dinner." The meal would include turkey and dressing, cranberry sauce, green beans, potato salad, rolls, cake and a choice of coffee or tea.
