The Hannibal Free Library and the Hannibal Friends of the Library recently honored Stella James as Hannibal’s 2012 Woman of the Year.
The celebration was held in the Community Center, and friends and family attended to celebrate with her.
James is involved in many different organizations, including Senior Nutrition, The Friends of the Hannibal Free Library, The Hannibal Historical Society, The Elderberries (of which she serves as president in the winter months), and the Senior Council.
“I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands and they were shouting with a mighty shout, “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!” — Revelation 7:9-10
It is a joyous crowd and an amazing display of the mercy and grace of God…a wonderfully astounding sight like nothing else in the history of the world.
It is a sight that will cause, “all the angels to fall before the throne with their faces to the ground, worshipping God and singing, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen’.”
According to new Hannibal varsity softball voach Jill Dunkleberger, the Lady Warriors have what it takes to improve upon last season’s record.
However, the goal of improving on last season’s record served as the catalyst for other goals that the team has decided upon: the number of wins the team believes that it can earn as well as the acceptable amount of errors per game, said Dunkleberger.
Hannibal will feature a balanced group of both younger and experienced players this season. Dunkleberger has been pushing her veteran players to serve as leadership figures for their younger teammates.
Though it happened one hundred years ago
it still seems as shocking as front page news,
the details of that tragedy
filling the ocean liner of our hearts
and carrying our compassion
down to the depths.
Maybe it was the way
rich died with poor –
their bodies wrapped in jewels
or in tatters –
mixing in those frigid waters.
Or maybe it was how wrong
even brilliant shipbuilders can be,
shocked to learn of their unsinkable promise
colliding with fate
But perhaps the greatest of ironies
is how it seemed her dream drowned that day
and was given up as lost –
yet in song, story and moving picture
she rises, again and again,
inviting those of us who believe in hope
to climb aboard.
The United States District Court District of New York has placed a judgment on attorney’s fees in a civil case against the County of Oswego.
The full legislature has been asked to approve the transfer of $65,214 from the appropriated fund balance to the insurance reserve.
The court ordered the county to pay the attorney fees for Jeff Holbrook, who sued over the Flow Control law. The judgment is dated March 23. The United States District Court in Syracuse struck down Oswego County’s Flow Control Law earlier last summer as unconstitutionally vague.
