    THERE is a fad that springs up now and then in America of considering it fashionable to deplore our flag as just a symbol. Well, that's absolutely right. It is a symbol. The only fault that I can find with the pseudointellectuals who therefore discount it is that they live by symbols and apparently aren't even aware of it. I would like to ask them a few questions. For example, why do they stop their cars when they see a red light at an intersection? It's just a symbol. The answer is obvious. The least unpleasant thing that could result...

    How To Observe Memeorial Day "Let us, then, at the time appointed, gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime....let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the Nation's gratitude,--the soldier's and sailor's widow and orphan." --General John Logan, General Order No. 11, 5 May 1868 The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe...

    Please Read and Disseminate If you are a veterinarian, please do not assume you know what this is until you have read this entire report.

    We've had threads for Thanksgiving, Christmas recipes/traditions. It's been this FReeper family sharing the special recipes/traditions of their 'real life' families/heritage. I know that we have MANY FReepers who come from various ethnic/religious backgrounds. And I thought it would be neat to share the ways we all celebrate New Year's.

    Congress Approves Mustang Slaughter PLEASE HELP, PLEASE PASS ON....................... Stealthily tucked within a much larger appropriations bill (HR 4818) while no one was watching, Congress approved measures this weekend to end 33 years of Federal protection for an America Treasure, our "Living Legends" - wild free-roaming horses and burros on public lands. This bill seems to have broadsided everyone, including many BLM personnel, who had drafted their own plans to handle the problem, and thought their plan would work. Since both House and Senate have already passed it, the only hope left is to get Bush not to sign it...

    In this mural, Lady Liberty cradles a dying soldier in her arms, remembering the sacrifices in life and death, made by so many to secure liberty for all. 284 faces of Crawford County, Ohio veterans were painted to look as though they were carved in the stone of the columns and back wall. This mural was designed in the year 2000. Painting began in May 2001 and finished Nov. 2001. Mid-way through the project, the World Trade Centers were attacked on Sept. 11th. Eric put up a banner the day after that read, "Her torch still shines, Our flag still...

    3/6/2003 - FBI Arrests Ohio Man The FBI converged on a rural house in Kilgore, Ohio Thursday and arrested a man on charges of providing false I-Ds to help illegal aliens get into the U-S from Canada. FBI agent Mitchell Marrone said the agency was tipped off by CNN after the television network received anonymous e-mails stating that someone in Ohio was helping illegal aliens enter the county. There was even an allegation in the e-mails that the person had Sarin gas and was planning a terrorist attack. The FBI is not saying what it discovered at Fernwalt’s house when...
  • Vanity, Seeking Help Locating WTC Memorial Image

    n/a ^ | today | mommadooo
    I've been looking for an image, that I'm fairly sure was a 'FReeper original', made after the WTC attack. As a memorial, the image was of an eagle head...had the American flag 'super-imposed' over it...and at the bottom, it said,' Let's Roll'. Like I said, I believe it's a FReeper who did it, because I can remember the thread, and the FReeper had the flag 'backwards'. Then he 'fixed' it.

    Citizens can't carry concealed guns yet Saturday, April 27, 2002 Liz Sidoti Associated Press The Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday said police in Hamilton County once again can enforce Ohio's ban on concealed weapons. The justices agreed to delay the 1st Ohio District Court of Appeals' April 10 ruling that declared the ban unconstitutional and allowed people to carry concealed weapons in Hamilton County, which includes Cincinnati. Ohio Attorney General Betty D. Montgomery, on behalf of the state, county and city, had asked the Supreme Court to stop the appeals court's ruling from going into effect to allow time for...

    Once again, I am turning to the wise and knowlegeable freepers for ideas/advice...concerning student loans. Hubby has decided he wants to take a step at acquiring a 'second career'. He wants to become a licensed farrier. (hoof caretaker/shoer) Our farrier told him to go to the local JTPA office because they would pay his tution for the schooling. (JTPA is some program run by the unemployment bureau) The JTPA woman just called and said that the farrier school is not on the 'approval list'. Hubby seems to think that the reason they don't have it as an 'approval' is because...

    Little Darby Creek wildlife refuge proposal is dead, U.S. official says Wednesday, March 13, 2002 Michael Hawthorne Dispatch Environment Reporter The Bush administration yesterday confirmed what local landowners and lawmakers have known for months: There won't be a Little Darby National Wildlife Refuge west of Columbus. In the end, three years of studies, hearings and rallies were boiled down to a few paragraphs sent to the local members of Congress who pressured the Interior Department to scuttle the project. "We believe that conservation of the agricultural and natural resources of the Darby watershed is important,'' wrote Craig Manson, assistant Interior...

    Little Darby area farmer happy to sell bottomland to state Thursday, January 10, 2002 Michael Hawthorne Dispatch Environment Reporter Farmers and federal lawmakers scuttled a proposed national wildlife refuge along the Little Darby Creek, but they can't stop property owners from selling land to help preserve the state and national scenic river.

John Blatter is the most recent farmer to sell. For years, city dwellers flocked to his 55 ...

    A Soldier's Christmas The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light, I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight. My wife was asleep, her head on my chest, my daughter beside me, angelic in rest. Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white, Transforming the yard to a winter delight. The sparkling lights in the tree, I believe, Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve. My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep, Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep in perfect contentment, or so it would seem. So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream. ...
