So, we fixed up three packages
and mailed ’em rat on out.
Sent one to BM2 Jarrod Prince
who is on the USS Shiloh some-
where in the Persian Gulf. He’s the
son of Belinda Epley Prince,
grandson of Barbara Epley, and
great-grandson of Tira Wallace.
Belinda lives in Meridian, Barbara
lives here in the Gap, and Tira
lives down to the Sunset Home in
Clifton. Jarrod graduated from
Meridian High School. Belinda
says he likes chewin’ gum, beef
jerky, and, of all things, tuna fish.
What a combination! But that’s
what we sent along with some
Kleenex and visine.
Sent one to a sailor on the USS
George Washington. His name is
Steven Kiddoo, grandson of Rich-
ard Roberts here in the Gap. Ain’t
shore just where this carrier is,
but Steven works on the catapult
crew. Helps shoot these fighter
jets rat off the roof.
And the third one to Cpl. Roy
Alviso, USMC. His sister, Veronica,
is purty shore he be rat on the
front lines. If’n Roy will hit them
Iraqi’s as hard as he usta hit op-
ponents on the football field, them
idiots just as well hang it up and
surrender. She said he likes
“Gummy Bears” so we included
some of them with the rest of the
By the way, Steven and Roy are
both Gap graduates.
And Richard Nowlain from here
in the Gap is a member of the Ma-
rine Corps reserve in Waco. He tol’

fine young men — until I got home
and turned on the TV. Feller from

Seems they need the room these
packages would take up to ship
war supplies. Reckon we just
didn’t think of that; but it shore
’nough makes sense to us now. But
we need to continue to keep all our
militray folks in our thoughts and
prayers. Mebbe they’ll let us know
when it’s alright to resume mailin’
stuff to ’em.

mind all y’all about the next

Time To Return
By David Anderson
CLIFTON — This is the time of
year when you “lose” that hour of
sleep you will “regain” in the fall. Day-
light Savings Time begins this week-
end by setting clocks ahead one hour
at 2 a m. Sunday morning, April 6.
Most of the nation observes the time
adjustment each spring.
Opinions are mixed throughout the
country as to the benefits of DST.
Some like it, some don’t, and some just
dr n’t care. A poll conducted via the In-
ternet showed 36 percent of those
polled think it is a “good thing,” 41 per-
cent think it is a “big hassle,” and 23
percent say it “makes little differ-
DST has a long-standing history in
the United States. The idea of Day-
light Savings Time was mentioned m
a whimsical essay in 1784 by Ben-
jamin Franklin. It was first advocated
seriously by a British builder, William
Willett, in the pamphlet Waste of Day-
One pollster has a unique perspec-
tive on the initiation of DST each
spring. “Setting clocks back is easy;
setting them forward is difficult.
Therefore, let us keep the fall ritual
as it is. However, one Sunday each
spring, let us set our clocks not one
hour forward, but 23 hours back-
wards,” Richard S. Holmes proposed.
‘ ‘Think of all the advantages. We will
not lose an hour of sleep; we will gain
(almost) a day of rest. It will be Satur-
day all over again. You will never again
miss Confession, or an airplane, or a
Rangers game,” theorized Holmes.
So, you see, there are many schools
of thought on Daylight Savings Time.
The only thing definite right now is
that if you forget to set your clocks
ahead one hour by this Sunday at 2
a.m., you will be one hour behind, or
operating on Mountain Standard
