Shueyville Methodist hosting blood drive June 23

SHUEYVILLE– During the summer months, blood donations often drop to low levels. The American Red Cross encourages donors to rev up their engines and head out to a nearby blood drive or donation center.
The Shueyville United Methodist Church will be hosting a blood drive Thursday, June 23, from 3-7 p.m. The church is located at 1195 Steeple Ln. NE just east of Interstate 380.

Food For Thought

There are words we use in conversation and very informal writing (such as texting – which is a newly popular term I find greatly annoying). We don’t pay a lot of attention to the way these words are spelled– or even if they ARE words– because we’re concerned only with getting the message across. A few are real words but are generally used incorrectly.

This past year I began cutting back on substitute teaching.
Subbing in the junior or senior high schools is easy enough: take attendance and play the video. Subbing in the elementary grades, however, can be as enjoyable as nicking yourself while shaving and then going for a swim in piranha-infested waters.
