I remember when I was a child I had a book of children’s science experiments that could be done at home. One of the experiments was to take a small plant, roots and all, and to place it in a cup of water where the water had been dyed with red food coloring. The roots would suck up the colore…

Money. Very popular stuff. Mostly we have a very “set” amount that we are allotted from our work or retirement. I have given up trying to increase this “allotment.” It is what it is.

Feb. 2, 2010, the CIA conducted a raid to capture, and then to jail the second in command of the Taliban military, Abdul Ghani Baradar. In 2018, the last administration released him as part of the talks with the Taliban. After several trips to this country, Secretary Michael Pompeo met with …

Here is one thing, I think, we can all 100% agree on. Isn’t it nice to be able to walk up to a public restroom and find that it is actually open? Going through 2020 with basically all public restrooms “out of order” was extremely stressful, considering it is a human neccesity to go to the bathroom.

I whole heartily agree with Editor Gustuson’s statement, “We have an awesome police team.” (Ref. Rachel’s Raves, 8-27-21; Yucaipa News Mirror.) The same date issue also shows the city council’s welcome for Sgt. Daniel Helmick. I fully agree again.

This is in regard to “Rock concerts at the YPAC,” on June 4, 2021, in the News Mirror.

Promotes wearing a mask,vaccinations Listed below are “A Citizens Seven Ways to Obey” during this COVID-19 pandemic. We should all wear a mask and get vaccinated. The first one is; Jesus said to obey, Romans 13; 1-2 obey all authority appointed over you. (2) Listen to the CDC and W.H.O. (3) Listen to the President of the USA. (4) Listen to the governor of your state. (5) Listen to your county supervisors. (6) Listen to your cities mayor. (7) John 21-17, listen to your sheppard of the church, Synagogue, or Mosque. 1. Romans 13; 1-2 Jesus said, “Obey the government, for God is the one who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey God, punishment will follow. 2. In order to protect yourself and others The CDC, Center for Diseases Control; says to get vaccinated, as they have approved several vaccines that can help protect you and others. CDC is the legal authority for quarantining, medicines, social protection, for CDC mandates all recommendations. 3. The Presidential powers and responsibility to today’s COVID-19 Pandemic as it was with the past President D. Trump, falls on Joe Biden, as well. They have declared a national emergency; along with all 50 governors’ of the United States. They have each set down guide lines for us to follow; in order for all of us to save lives. The president follows all guidelines of the CDC. Therefore, knowing that one God has spoken through His Son, Christ Jesus in Romans 13; 1-2, and to those who listen they have a responsibility to save lives; like the 2 CDC and the three presidents or kings or queens of all countries. These three and the following four authorities, four governors, five supervisors, six mayors and seven church leaders; Pastors, preachers, priest, rabbis and imams, have a responsibility to save and protect the lives of their sheep. 4. We began this recitation of seven ways to obey the wearing of mask’s and getting vaccinated; I find this in John 21-17, Jesus asked St. Peter this question three times! “Do you love me:, and on the last response “You know I do Lord,” then Jesus said, “Go and feed my sheep.” Each leader is responsible for this question? “Do I have the authority to say yes wear your mask, and get vaccinated. I would like to give you an example of what has happened in the last few days at a golf tournament! The leader tested positive for COVID, he was disqualified and lost out on 1.6 million dollars. He would have tied Tigers record for the golf world. Minister Bob Schofield. Yucaipa
