Church Notebook: Resist tempatation to be unkind when others are mean to you

A couple days ago, cleaning out my purse, just about everything slid out of my wallet.

For the umpteenth time I thought about those fancy new ones that are supposed to hold everything but the kitchen sink, and keep those characters at bay who can steal your credit card information. Definitely better than the homemade one I carry, but it serves it’s purpose, this one of yarn and plastic canvas.

Backers of the local State of Jefferson movement in 2014 envisioned a haven free of stifling regulations where even the smallest community would have a voice. They probably wouldn’t recognize the lawless, almost post-apocalyptic, frontier filmmaker Gary Lundgren dreamed up for his third full-length film, “Black Road.”

Witnesses tumult over Middle East refugees 

A Del Norte High School graduate got a taste of life in Hungary last autumn, learning the language as well as what life was like during Communist control.

Paige Van Valkenburgh, who grew up in Smith River and graduated from Del Norte in 2013, said she arrived in Budapest in September right before Hungary closed its borders to refugees from the Middle East. But while advisors at her college talked about safety precautions, the refugees weren’t dangerous and weren’t causing any problems, she said.

“They were all just trying to move forward into Germany,” Van Valkenburgh said, adding that most of the refugees were in a different part of the city. “Budapest, overall, is safe. I was never afraid of being pickpocketed. I would walk around and just feel safe there.”
