Psalms 6:1-10
King James Version (KJV)
 

1O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.

For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

5/21/2015 - THE NYS DEPT. OF CONSERVATION IS STILL ADVISING THE BURN BAN THROUGH TODAY.

------------

BURN BAN EXTENDED.

Resource:  The NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation.


For Release: Friday, May 15, 2015

DEC: Campfires, Recreational Fires and Outdoor Cooking Fires Will Be Allowed Due to Downgrade of State's Fire Danger Rating
Milder Temperatures and Rain Forecasts Reduce Fire Risk Across the State.

Brush Burning Ban Remains in Effect Through May 21.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has downgraded the fire danger rating in the state from "high" to "moderate" due to milder temperatures, especially at night, and rain forecasted for many areas of New York the next few days. As a result, campfires, recreational fires and outdoor cooking fires will be allowed. The ban on brush burning remains in effect through May 21.

"In recent weeks, state and local responders have battled a large number of wildfires across New York State, fueled by high temperatures and extremely dry conditions," DEC Commissioner Joe Martens said. "Based on milder temperatures and forecasts for rain in many areas of New York, campfires and small outdoor fires will be allowed.

While this is welcome news for anyone who will be enjoying the outdoors this weekend, I urge people to be cautious with campfires and outdoor cooking fires to protect themselves and others, and help preserve our beautiful natural resources."  The following safety tips should be followed when using a campfire:

 
  • Use existing campfire rings when possible.
  • Build campfires away from overhanging branches, steep slopes, rotten stumps, logs, dry grass and leaves. Pile any extra wood away from the fire.
  • Limit the size of campfires to no more than 3 feet in height and 4 feet in diameter, and only use charcoal or untreated wood as fuel. Also keep any burnable material within a 10 foot diameter circle to prevent a campfire from spreading.
  • Never leave a campfire unattended. Even a small breeze could cause the fire to spread quickly.
  • Drown the fire with water. Make sure all embers, coals, and sticks are wet. Move rocks as there may be burning embers underneath.
  • Stir the remains, add more water, and stir again. If you do not have water use dirt. Do not bury your coals as they can smolder and break out.
  • Consider using a small stove for cooking in remote areas vs making a campfire.

There are currently five active fires in New York, totaling nearly 3,000 acres. All the fires are contained, but are being patrolled to ensure there are no flare ups.

TOWN OFFICIAL - RUMOR NOT TRUE!

The Gazette learned that there is a "rumor" going around that a town official, namely, the Town Highway Superintendent, Rick Granger wouldn't be running again for Town Highway Superintendent.  So, the Gazette contacted Mr. Granger, and to set the record straight....He will be running again for Town Superintendent. 
The Gazette also learned it had the wrong cell phone number for Rick.  His correct cell phone number is 238-6521.  Sorry about that Rick. 
Patricia.

Jim’s car is swerving all over the road so a cop pulls him over, “Step out of the car” says the cop, “I am going to need you to take a  breathalyzer test.” “I can’t”, Jim responds “You see I have very bad asthma, that can set off an attack.”

“Alright,” says the cop, “then you’re going to have to take a blood test.” “Can’t do that either,” Jim responds, “I am a hemophiliac, if a wound is opened, I won’t stop bleeding, and I could bleed to death.”

“Ok,” the cop answers “then I will need a urine sample.” “Sorry,” says Jim “I also have diabetes, that could push my sugar count really low.”

“Fine, so just come on out, and walk a straight line for me.” “Can’t do that either” responds Jim. “Why not?” Demanded the exasperated cop. “Well, because I’m drunk!”

A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption.
One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named “Ahmal.”
The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him “Juan.”
Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother.
