Thoughts for life Information Provided By Local MCCL Written By Carol Karels The House of Representatives approved the Child Custody Protection Act which makes it a federal crime to transport a minor across a state line to obtain an abortion. Also, in July they voted to override President Clinton's veto of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. The Senate adjourned without action on either bill but now it will be coming up. Write or call our Senators, (202) 224-3121. It will take just a minute as you will more than likely just leave a message with a secretary. They must get your name so it is a verified call from one of their constituents. Equally as important is to vote FOR Lethal Drug Abuse Protection Act which would reverse the decision of Attorney General Janet Reno that federally controlled drugs can be used to assist suicide and euthanasia.

Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "And God said...let the birds fly across the firmament of heavens. So God created every winged bird according to its kind. And saw that it wasgood." Genesis 1:20-21 I enjoy "bird watching." When time allows I can sit for hours either at the cottage or in our back yard, watching with wonder as they fly about. The geese, pelican and cormorant are a wondrous sight as they soar high overhead. I wonder why God made birds... and all living things...of such great variety. I'm glad that He did. How empty our lives would be without the birds. In addition to enriching our lives with their beauty, geese and birds in general teach us many truths about life. Reflecting on the migration of waterfowl, William Cullen Bryant concluded: "He who, from zone to zone, Guides through the boundless sky thy certain flight, In the long way that i must tread alone Will le,,d my steps aright.' Jesus said, ' Do not be anxious about your life. Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heave, nly father feeds them. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow. (see Matthew 7:25-34) "Geese have intrigued men since the beginning of history," states Walter L. Bush in A Saga of Goose Hunting. The next time that you pause to look up in fascination, recall the words of Bryant and Jesus. death of our husband, father, grandfa- ther and great grandfather, Merlin Arndt. A very special thanks to all of you who came to visit and those who called so regularly just to check in to let him know you cared. Thanks also to neighbors Merv and Jan Redfield, Ed and Lorene Kiernat and Velma Kellen for going "above and beyond" the call in your kindness; to Merlin's brother, Marvin and wife, Mary Ann, for coming so often to visit; to his 10:00 coffee group at the Too Mad which he so looked forward to each day; to Dr. Ross and all the friendly and professional doctor and nursing staff at Ortonville Hospital; to Rice Hospice, especially Cindy, Peggy and Pam; to Pastor Berger for your prayers and visits; to the Holden Church women's group, WELCA, for all your work at the funeral; and to each of you who touched us in some special way during this difficult time.

As their favorite football teams fight for possession of the ball, football fanatics will fight their family and friends for possession of the remote control. What other television program consistently delivers thrills like an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, suspense like a John Grisham novel, and fun like Disney's Broadway show, "Beauty and the Best"? A football game has it all: heroes and villains (quarterbacks vs. lineman), ingenues (rookies), wise elders (the coaches) and a chorus (the cheerleaders). It's had to beat a football game for its sheer entertainment value. Football is the nation's most popular sport. According to a 1997 ESPN/Chilton survey, an astonishing 71 percent of Americans say they're NFL fans, of which 43 percent are women. (Thirty-one percent of those Americans say they're not just NFL fans, they're "avid" NFL fans.) Last January, the NFL negotiated an eight-year, $17.6 billion deal to broadcast up to 200 regular season games all over the country. Unfortunately, football fans can't be everywhere at the game time. To meet this demand, the NFL developed the NFL Sunday Ticket TM, a sports subscription package. It is the best way for football fans to see the most games -- up to 13 every Sunday during the regular season. Fans can watch the game in the comfort of their own homes on DIRECTV, the nation's largest provider of direct broadcasting satellite (DBS) service. "NFL SUNDAY TICKET is DIRECTV's most popular sports package and its largest acquisition driver by far," said John Di Dio, Senior Vice President of Pegasus Satellite Television, the nation's leading independent provider of DIRECTV. "We are very excited to offer new subscribers this year's NFL SUNDAY TICKET promotion -- the best one yet." This year, new residential subscribers who buy a DIRECTV Satellite System and NFL SUNDAY TICKET between now and Oct. 25 can score four months of Total Choice PLATINUM and three $2.99 programming coupons. That's more than $200 in free programming. Total Choice PLATINUM, DIRECTV's ultimate entertainment package, offers the best sports, movies and variety channels. According to Di Dio, this promotion will be a major force in keeping football fever alive. Those in the know hope the year will be even better for the NFL's merchandise sales, which exceeded $3 billion in 1997, and look forward to more than 750 million viewers watching the Superbowl. All in all, football fever is running high.
