We have parades, special events and more. It's wonderful and I often wish we could do more. However, sometimes we for- get about those who sacri- ficed almost as much.., the spouses of military men and women. Before we get too in- depth here, let mesay I'm not saying they should have a special holiday. I'm sim- ply stating they should be remembered. Veteran's Day is a great holiday and allows us the opportunity to honor those who have served. Let's not confuse Veteran's Day with Memorial Day, which is the day set aside to remember those who gave their lives Military spouses have to deal with the anxiety of wait- ing and wondering, during deployments and especially during war time, how their better half is doing, if he or she is alive, how long will it be before they return home again for a short time.

[i I remember as a child playing with one of those hourglass-type devices, flip- ping it over and watching the grains of sand slowly pass from top to bottom. It was not a true hourglass as I seem to think the grains of sand passed through the tube in only a minute or two, but those of you in my age range and older will remem- ber them. Those small hour- glass-shaped devices were actually used as kitchen timers. It is not often I use this column to share things of a personal nature but I choose to do so this week. ..... Last week was very dif- ficult for our family on mul- tiple levels. Early in the week, one member of our immedi- ate family was hospitalized for a particular issue. While there another issue surfaced and he had to undergo a biop- sy for something potentially more serious. Just having to have such a procedure done= is scary enough. A few years back I had several spots removed from one leg. Even though my doc- tor expressed doubts regard- ing the potential of them being cancer, the wait for the test result seemed to take for- ever.

Last week, on the same day our immediate family member was released from the hospital, another imme- diate family member abrupt- ly passed away. I was pres- ent when he collapsed. Allow me to share with you that per- forming CPR on a stranger is one thing, performing it on a member of your family is entirely different. According to the Centers for Disease Control, a multi- year study found that those suffering a cardiac event away from a medical care facility, even when receiving immediate CPR, have a sur- vival rate of less than eight percent. Such statistics are well known in the public safety community but that does not help when one is trying to save a life. My initial efforts, followed by those of EMS and fire department personnel, followed still later by the efforts of medical profes- sionals could not save the life of our family member. Sand passing through an hourglass. IT IS often said that we never know what the next day, hour or even minute will bring. In truth, we hear such words so often they become trite and without meaning. Unfortunately, they are truer than often realized. One moment a family is sitting around the dinner table, or they're out shopping, on vacation, in a movie the- ater, or just carrying on some mundane part of their nor- mal lives when someone abruptly collapses and is gone. Or, perhaps a family member sits in a doctor's office and learns they have an incurable medical situa- tion. Such events happen every day. In fact, they happen all top portion, you just flipped it over and the sand would begin dribbling from the top to the bottom again. There is no flipping over of the hourglass of life. When the final grain of sand falls, this life is over. There is no reboot, no start- ing the game over. We would give much to have one more conversation with the one we just lost. I use this week's column to urge you to share your thoughts, feelings and final wishes with those close to yOU. Don't put it off because that sand in the hourglass never stops dropping.., until the final grain falls. That's my opinion. / Andy Kober is a regular columnist for Trib Publications.

Rogers at the time was chasing a speeder, who had roared through town many times faster than the speed law allows, and in some way lost control of the car, side swiped a bridge abutment, turning the car completely over and landing on all four wheels. The speeder continued on his way, without stopping. Rogers was hurried to the clinic for medical attention, and it was found that he had sustained a dislocated collar bone, and severe bruises, cuts and a terrible shock to his system. He was stated to have had a good fright following the accident, and his many friends hope for his speedy recovery. 9 PercentRaise For Local U.S. Rubber Co. Workers Raises Annual Payroll Quarter Million Nearly a quarter of a million dollars was added to the annual payroll of the local U.S. Rubber Company plants here on Monday of this week. Beginning on thfit date all workers in the three plants here were given a voluntary 9 percent minimum raise in wages. Employees of the Stark and Reid Mills and the Asbeston plant received this good news with much pleasure, when they reported for work, on their usual shifts on Monday of this week. Confederate Veteran Passes at Round Oak Georgia has lost another of the heroes of the Confederacy. Gen. Hiram G. Van Zandt passed away at the home of his daugh- ter in Round Oak. He was 100 years old last January. His demise left Middle Georgia without any living Confederate veterans. A handful of others, however, remain in other sections of the state. Car Thief Is Captured Here C.W. Strickland, of Griffin, was taken into custody here on Saturday by local police, with a car stolen in Griffin that morning. Strickland is said to have stolen the car about 2 p.m. and local offi- cers picked him up here at 6 p.m. The car was the property of Julius Dumas of Griffin, and was returned to him the next day by the Spalding Co. sheriff, who also took Strickland backto the Spalding Jail.
