The Advent season calls us to emulate John the Baptist

"There was a man named John sent by God who came as a witness to testify to the light so that all men might be saved." --John 1:6

Christian Patristic authors styled John the Baptist as The Great Precursor. Old Testament prophecies foretold the The Messiah would be introduced to The Chosen People by a pre-eminent prophet, Cf., Isaiah 40:3. This last and greatest prophet would be sanctified in the womb, Cf., Jeremiah 1:15, luke 1:15; and have the "spirit" of Elijah the Prophet, Cf., Malachi 4:5, Matthew 11:14, Luke 1:17.

Hatfield new mayor

Charlie Hatfield is the new mayor of Pawnee City.

Hatfield was President of the Council and it was his duty to either take the mayor spot or put it up for selection. Former Mayor Deb Klein resigned last meeting.

Hatfield said he had spent much time thinking about his decision. He has served as Mayor before.

The Council will now advertise for the open position on the Council. A name will be selected within four weeks by the new Mayor for vote of the Council. Look for the ad in the paper.

The search begins for a new Pawnee City Mayor

By Ray Kappel

Mayor Deb Klein has resigned.

At a City Council meeting Nov. 12, Klein read from a prepared statement, voicing her frustrations in dealing with the Council, and then walked out. You can read her statement that appears on the Editorial Page.

The search begins for a new mayor. Either of two things can happen. President of the Council Charlie Hatfield can assume the position, or if he declines the Council can take applications.

Sput Turnbull on the Feast

Ray Kappel set out to find a great cook for our Thanksgiving stories and he immediately thought of Sput Turnbull. She is an outstanding cook as you can tell by the crowd of people who eat her cooking at the Senior Center in Table Rock. This is the interview and her answers.

Q: WHAT IS THANKSGIVING LIKE IN YOUR FAMILY?

A: Thanksgiving has probably been the best holiday in my opinion. It’s been a time when our family got together, ate and just socialized. We’ve played cards and snacked for hours. Years ago, it was generations of family. My Grandma Beulah Epley would host it and many of her siblings would attend with all of their families. My mom baked the turkey and dressing. My grandma baked the best pies, usually pumpkin and pecan. And everyone brought a covered dish. Over the years, as the generations have passed, the get together gets smaller but I still love to cook and whoever can come, comes.
