Parents receive the gift of a lifetime at graduation event

The May 3rd, 2013, weekend is a weekend I will always remember. Our next to the youngest daughter Dominique Taylor was the Keynote Speaker that Friday evening at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law Black Congratulatory Ceremony in Bloomington, Indiana. The official graduation was the following day.

To see your daughter stand in front of a full auditorium of college graduates, their families and friends and speak so eloquently and professionally is the best gift parents could ask for.

It seems like just last year she was about three when her mother took her off the bottle. Because of that unwanted change in her life, she was determined to continue sucking a bottle. That is when we noticed two little feet standing behind the curtains. She was secretly and defiantly enjoying her younger sister’s bottle. I knew then one day her determination will catapult her into prosperity.

She is studying to take the Bar Exam on July 31st. I have no doubt she will pass first time around.

Praise to God!

Obama got elected president because he is the best

Reading the Post Tribune at 7:10 a.m. I read your article, “President Obama is only good for more campaigning.”

I said to myself, what a campaigner. He’s the best in the U.S. that’s why he’s the president.

Mr. Cyrus:

I also read my devotions from Moody Bible Institute, Proverbs 1. Purpose of the book — for attaining knowledge and discipline.

Please read Proverbs 1 as soon as possible.

God to help you to respect the president of the U.S. and all of God’s people in the whole wide world.

Rev. Marvin Read Jr.

Look into methane gas as
a source for clean energy

In the Post Tribune of April 18 you wrote an article on wind turbines. How about landfill methane gas? You see it being burnt at Wheeler, Gary, Michigan City, Ind. It is clean burning, no residue. There are thousands of landfills in the U.S.

Southern Indiana has an electric generating plant that uses methane. Call Sen. Lugar’s office for the city.

A city in Colorado 25,000 residents produced enough electricity to power the whole city for 25 years and a new land fill will be ready in 25 years. Steel Mills generate electricity but NIPSCO won’t boycott excess power instead they burn coal and the residue is toxic.
