— After much trouble with my computer and the Internet this summer, I think I have all the bugs worked out. I hope to have an article each week from now on. I apologize to anyone who did not get their article included in my column.

Kudos to Michelle Sonnen, fifth-sixth grade teacher at Summit Academy. In an effort to demonstrate the service our military does for us, there were no desks or chairs in the classroom on the first day of school. Mrs. Sonnen told the students that they could have them when they could tell her how they earned them. In the afternoon a uniformed veteran knocked on the door and carried in a desk. He was followed by more veterans and more desks for each student. Mrs. Sonnen explained, “You didn’t earn the right to sit at these desks. These heroes did it for you.” She went on to explain the sacrifices the veterans had made to serve their country gives the students the freedom to attend school, and the freedom of religion to attend a Catholic school. The students applauded and thanked the veterans for their service. Election day is coming up soon. Make sure you vote for people who support the military.

There will be a public square rosary crusade at the Cottonwood City Park on Saturday, Oct. 15, beginning at noon. The rally will be in honor of Our Lady of Fatima.
