Get-well wishes, birthday celebrations and anniversaries
By Betty Moore
According to Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel report from Ann Gwanthney the church has paid off its debt on the fellowship hall. The debt was made some two years ago and with donations and fund-raisers they are now free of the almost $100,000 debt. They are praising God and thanking everyone for whatever part God led them to do. They had the ladies group on Thursday night with Marge Snoderly in charge. They plan on helping with the Baptist Children’s Home needs during April and May. In addition a gift box is being prepared for a GI in Iraq.
The Buckhead Cemetery Cleanup will be May 3. Bring your saws or whatever utensils you need. Contact Ricky Walker with questions. If you can help it will be appreciated and much needed.
I had an unexpected visit to Boswell Emergency Room on Friday afternoon for a shot of vitamin K. I was sent by my doctor and told to eat many greens, lettuce and to come back in two days. So I’m going on this Monday afternoon. Seems funny to me as well as I have enjoyed turnip greens through the years these frozen ones don’t seem to taste too good. Are they too much like a medicine that I would take? Oh, well!
Christie White from Atlanta came down to Bonner’s to meet her parent’s, Grayson and Frieda White to celebrate Grayson’s recent birthday.

In reference to my going over to Boswell Hospital, I had the pleasure to meet a very good, sweet, young woman that happened to be my nurse. She was from Buckhead and is Shondia Evans. Thanks Shondia for being there.
John and Gail Wade went to Shorter College at Rome for the 50th anniversary of Gail’s being there. They also spent a few beautiful days at Callaway Gardens.
There was a very good gathering at the home of Chuck and Miriam Foster for the Buckhead-Bethany Friendship Club last week.
Ann Gwanthney is the Lake Oconee lady who will relay news to me. She is assisted by Maudie Jordan. May I ask that your news be given to these ladies or to me? I invite each church to give me your news. I will gladly add it to this column. To each of you readers lets support our news column.
With the high cost of vehicle gas I read a column in an April 6 edition of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that was interesting. Many of us do not seem to realize that our sudden starts, stops, sudden turns and speeding that we may do greatly increased our fuel consumption. Denver is a test spot for software that is from California. There are to be 400 people in a test program to have accelerometers installed to showcase the driver’s behavior. Once installed they would like to see a 20 percent decrease in fuel consumption after the driver could review his driving habits. What with congress intervening in years past in plane strikes, train strikes why could they not step in to help now with the gas crisis? What shall we all do with prices such as these?
