Waco Town Crier – April 2018

An adapted version of “The Town Crier” sent by Jeanne Harman on March 1, 2018.

Hot Off the Press

Stan Lennard’s book, Nerve Endings of the Soul: Interaction Between the Mind of God and the Mind of Man through Neural Synaptic Networks, has now been published by Westbow Press.

It is now listed on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. More information is available on Stan’s website.

(A few comments from Stan regarding his book):
“I caution the reader that I address how quantum mechanics, quantum wave theory and information theory apply to the topic I consider, especially in the last couple of chapters. It shows how properly interpreted Scripture and scientific data are in concordance with a consistent relationship and presents a cumulative case for the reality of bidirectional interaction between the Holy Spirit, the living Jesus Christ, and the human mind/soul through a repentant human spirit.”

Nerve Endings of the Soul | E. Stan Lennard, M.D., Sc.D.
Nerve Endings of the Soul confirms that the Holy Spirit communicates with the mind of Man by dualist interaction fulfilling the promise in John 14:15-21.

From Our Graduates

From Linda (Shelby) Lyons, regarding Karon (Shinault) Jackson’s quilts:
“Karon, you are so talented! The quilts are beautiful. I would never try something so difficult, as I know I would never finish it. Whomever you give them to are truly fortunate.”

From Mary Ann (Shilling) Watt: !!!!!
“I had the wires of my brand new Toyota chewed up and cost $1000 to fix. Talking to folks at the luncheon I found others had similar problems. A friend of mine sent me this article and I would like you to forward it in case it would help others.”

Updates

Annita (Incardona) Henson was recently in the hospital with a severe case of diverticulitis. At first she thought it was a stomach bug because so much illness/flu had been going around New York. However, when things worsened, she went to her GI doctor who sent her directly to the hospital. She was on a constant IV drip and saline solution for the duration of the hospital stay. She reports that she was glad to get home and is now feeling better. She mentioned it on Facebook, heard from many graduates, and wants to thank all who wrote to wish her well. It always does our hearts good to know that others care and are thinking of us when we get down with illness or heartache.

Malissa (Starnes) Baugh’s granddaughter, Marlie Ruth, won the Mutton Buster at the Houston Rodeo this year. Click here to  read Marlie Ruth’s interview. I understand it has gone viral. This is the same little granddaughter who had the brain tumor and the one who we all prayed for so earnestly when she was first born. Marlie grew up…..is cancer free so far….and is making quite a name for herself. Marlie Ruth said in order to win the mutton buster, she just “hung on really tight.” Maybe that is what we all need to do as we get older and have different issues….”just hang on really tight”.

Show and Tell

Featured this month is Janell (Buida) Bolton. Jeanell is an author who has published two books with the third one coming out sometime this year.
Janelle reports:
“I’m doing the same things I’ve always done–art, languages, and writing, writing, writing. Both of these books have central Texas settings, and readers will notice a good bit of Waco in them, although it’s intermixed with Georgetown, Temple, and every other small Texas town I’ve ever taught in or driven through. I write romances, which means my main characters have happy endings, but first, they have to walk through the fire. My stories are steamy, but I can assure you that, despite the covers (which my NY editor chose), none of my Texas characters ever fool around on the ground. (Yankees don’t understand about chiggers.)
“My third book should be coming out this year, and I have a couple more manuscripts languishing in my files that I want to bring up to date (translation: add in technology) and self-publish over the next couple of years. Then there are the short stories and poems I’ve always meant to do something with. My father had the idea that at a certain age, one should ‘sit back and smell the roses,’ but that just doesn’t seem to be my nature.”

(Steamy romance and dark secrets) – Preacher’s daughter Laurel Harlow doesn’t want the bad boy who made god to know that she, who used to be Bosque Bend’s favorite daughter, is now the town pariah–and why.
Published: September 2014
Moira Farrar has survived the worst that Hollywood to had to offer. And now she’s come to Bosque Bend to make a fresh start as the director of the Texas towns civic theater. She knows that rancher Rafe McAllister, the Chairman of the Board, has a more personal interest in her, but would he feel the same way if he knew what she had left behind?

Pictures

I was looking through some old pictures and ran across this one. It is of a graduate of ours taken about 20 years ago on the grounds of the Biltmore in North Carolina.

Anyone recognize this young chickie-pooh? It is our very own Kay (Phillips) Sparks.
