Red letter day

for United Way

Students, faculty and parents at Perry Primary School have
helped raise $580 for Taylor County United Way in a campaign
which began with a simple request of five cents a day.
"We knew all of the money would be used here in Taylor
County," said Melissa Everett, whose class raised the most money,
earning students an ice cream social.
"We turned it into a competition to see which class could raise
the most money," Everett said. "It all went to a wonderful cause.
"We challenged them to go on scavenger hunts, looking in
couches and in the laundry room. We also challenged the parents
and they were great in helping."
According to Principal George Clayton, the school's campaign
began during last year's overall campaign, when students were
challenged to bring in a penny a day.
"This year we raised it to a nickel a day," he said. "The students
have done a really great job. Originally, we were going to
recognize the top three classes, but everyone did so well, every

Watkins says she enjoyed
performing at the numerous
churches and events, but the
thing she remembers most is
the recording session.
The Daughters of Harmony
did more than claim their place
in Taylor County's Black
history that day. Lueva says
their dedication and their love
of gospel music left a lasting

Contributing columnist
Once upon a time not too
long ago, the Daughters of
Harmony stood together in
front of a church filled with
family and friends and sang
their hearts out.
"We'll understand it better by
and by," Lueva Demps, one of
the group's two altos, led.
Alfreda Demps, the group's
musician, sang both alto and
Alyce Watkins had her turn
to lead when the group sang,
"Pass Me Not O Gentle
Savior." The other soprano,
Mary Phillips, blended her
voice with Watkins', while the
altos and the group's contralto
and founder, Evangelist
Carolyn Demps, provided the
"I remember how excited I
was, but it was a live recording
so I was skeptical about every
move \ve made," Carolyn
Demps vividly recalls. "I
thought any sound we made
would come out on the
recording." .
Alfreda remembers that day
well and agrees with her sister-

were trymg to adjust the sound

.:nd m ke sure ths instrument
"But it was very exciting to
know that we were recording a
live performance."
Watkins says she thinks they
were all a little nervous because
it was a live recording, "but we
had been singing together for
several years before we did the
recording, so I knew it would
turn out alright."
Before the recording session
at Perry's Antioch Missionary
Baptist Church was over, five
of the six ladies who made up
The Daughters of Harmony had
lent their voices to the group's
1989 album cassette.
The group's other member,
Georgia Lee Buchanan, was
unable to be at the recording
session. Buchanan says she
regrets not being at the session,
but she still remembers how
much fun she had performing
with the group, the highlight of

when Carolyn's vision brought
them together, nearly all of
them attend different churches.
Elder Carolyn Demps is now
pastor of Bethel of Mt. Sinai
Holy Church in Mayo and
plans to sing until "there's
nothing left to sing."
Alyce Watkins and Lueva
Demps are members of Mt.
Olive M.B. Church, and both
are members of the choir which
is directed by Lueva's daughter,
Sabrina Demps.
After more than 50 years,
Mary Phillips is still singing
lead in New Brooklyn M.B.
Church choir.
Alfreda Demps, an
accomplished musician and
instructor, is a member of
Genesis M.B. Church located
in Madison.
And Georgia Lee Buchanan
resides in Douglas, Ga., where
she is active in her church.
"Most of us have retired or
are semi-retired from our
professions, but we haven't
retired from our church or our
music," Lueva declares.
So what is the likelihood of
the group reuniting for a Black
History Month concert?
"Well," Lueva grins and then

And we're stronger in the
Lord," she states.
It's a short drive to Perry,
Buchanan quickly adds, "so,
you can count me in.
Phillips and Watkins can be

As for Carolyn, the other
Daughters of Harmony only
need to say when.

Hand." It briefly describes how
the writer views the existence of
an unseen hand that guides him.
It doesn't mention God, but it's
clear the writer knows that God
provides that unseen hand.
If you are fortunate enough
to experience the action of
an unseen hand that changes
things for the better in your
life, you will understand
that a coincidence is just a
coincidence. A string of them,
moving events in a particular
way to benefit you, become a
marvelous blessing that you
And if God sends an angel
at just the right moment to put
a sock on your cold foot you
will have to acknowledge that
everything is under control and
you need not worry.

grumbled a bit, still retaining
my thankful attitude for the
service that was available to me.
Then, on Jan. 2, my wife fell
and suffered a hairline fracture
in her thigh. She was in the
hospital and rehabilitation unit
for 13 days. She required full-
time attention after returning
home and beginning physical
therapy. Wow! Wasn't it lucky
that I wasn't in the hospital
when that happened? No.
When you have a new
artificial hip there are some
things that you can't do. One
is to bend over or raise your leg
so you can put a sock and shoe
on the affected leg. There are
tools to enable those activities,
but I Apn't have any of them.
My wife is still unable to assist
me sometimes with even those
simple tasks.
That's how I came to be
sittirig.in my living room one
morning with only one sock on
and one cold foot. The phone
rang. A dear friend setting out
for the day wanted to know how
things were going, did we need
anything, etc. I told her that all
was well except for the absent
sock. She said she was coming
to put it on for me. I protested
a bit, but she said, "It's too late.
I'm already in front of your
house. I'm coming in." And
so she did, quickly making me
more comfortable. Another
lucky coincidence, right? No.
The dictionary defines a
coincidence as the occurring
of two or more -things at the
same time, remarkable because
there is no apparent cause. I'll
go along with that. But what
do you call it when numerous
coincidences over a period of
years work together, as if laid out
in a pattern, and direct your.1ife

I had a hip joint replaced
recently. If I ever make a list
of experiences that I don't want
to repeat, that will surely be
near the top of the list. I have
never had any problems with
any of my skeletal joints. No
arthritis, only a couple of minor
fractures. Consequently, I was
surprised when my hip sent me
a little message that became
a big message within just two
months. Oh, well. My wife had
both of her hip joints replaced
within recent years, so I knew
what to expect.
After confirming the problem
with my family doctor, I set
out on July 31 to make the
necessary arrangements with an
orthopedic surgeon. Took me a.
couple of mo dis to see him. I
was eager to get the work done
so I could recuperate during
the winter months and be up
to my usual physical activities
before next summer. The delay
annoyed me a bit, but the
orthopedic clinic is always very,
very busy, and I was thankful
that the surgeon's, services
would be available to me..
First, though, he wanted to
do some tests more definitive
than the x-ray to confirm
that the surgery was actually
necessary. Another month or
two of delay. Then I discovered
that the surgeon didn't operate
in the hospital of my choice, so
it was necessary to connect with
another surgeon who did.
During that time my wife
suffered two minor strokes that
required my full-time attention
in helping her to recover,
Wasn't it lucky that my surgery
was delayed? No. Read on.
My next choice of time was
early January, but .Jan. 27 was
the earliest date available. I

CO py rig h te d~llate ria I


In my imagination, our electric meter
Clings to the side of our house and thinks
great thoughts.
,,:.probably wonders why we're out
Why we left the lights on.
Or why we never go anywhere.
It wonders why the heat hasn't cycled
It wonders why I have so much laundry
to do. .
Why I cook so much.
Why the computer wasn't turned off.
If the phone chargers are necessary.
All the while, its little meter arms are
doing aerobic exercises.
But when the deep darkness
of midnight falls, I bet it sleeps
soundly--like you do after a good day's
work. It may wonder, "Is this all there
is?" and to be sure, for the electric meter,
this is all there is.
When the alarm clocks in our home
sound each morning, it slings its little
meter hands to work and watches them
earn money for the. power company,
gomg 'round and 'round and 'round,
The lights go on, and the toaster oven
fires up.
The pump begins 'pumpiilg water for
The electric blowdryers dry hair.
The coffeemaker creates morning
caffeine, while the heating unit tries to
bring the house to a manageable warmth.
The televisions turn on, and the
nucrowave is deployed.
The camera is taken off its charging
station, while the clothes dryer fluffs
a jacket. All the while, the little meter
hands are working up a sweat on the
side of the house, toiling like Trojans for
the power company.
Then it's time for us to leave for school
and work. I turn the thermostat down
and suddenly the little meter hands fall
to the idle position, and the meter itself
takes a nap---a well deserved nap.
The meter knows we're gone.
The meter knows it's i ortant to rest
Because the meter knows we'll be back,
and the routine will be repeated as soon
as the door slams that afternoon.

It must be for this is all there is.
What I am about to suggest is nothing
short of heresy because it is completely

th hoa dd- eTes nT
lot of time with this month's power bill.
Why? Because it was an all-time high for
our home in which we have been using
power for 25 years,
repeat that: it was the largest powe@
bill we have had m 25 years.
We were horrified.
You, too, were horrified, I febl sur ,
and powerless.
In my attempt to be logical, I reminded
myself of two .weeks' of freezing
temperatures. Even with a new "green'
heating system, we were off the charts.
Then I looked at the daily estimate
As horrible as the total was, the daily
estimate was $8.
Yes, $8.
Now $8 isn't Chicken feed, but when I
started to consider how many activities
are charged by that $8, I was impressed.
We cook our food, take hot baths and
showers, do laundry and homework,
illuminate our rooms, Charge all our
appliances and dry our hair for $8
a day.
When placed beside a $2.50 glass of
iced tea or a $2.75 gallon of gas, I'm
willing to pay $8 for warmth and food
and lights and music.
It is when you multiply that $8 by 31
days that it becomes oppressive.
But before I sound so flattering toward
the power company that they offer me
a job in public relations making three
timestheamountof moneyl'mcurrently
grinding out at this fine newspaper, let
me be clear: three-hour power outrages
are completely unacceptable--even if
you do live in the uttermost parts of
the world, like we do. And those 7 a.m.
brown-outs when the temperature was
17 and I was punished for turning my
thermostat down during the evening,
well, that was pretty cold, in every sense of
the word.
But for $8 a day, I'm willing to pay...if
you'll just keep the power coming.
Power to the people!

convention and 1,000 people
attending the banquet featuring
Sarah Palin as the keynote
speaker, .There were 150-plus
people in the press corps from
all over the world. News crews
from Japan, Italy and elsewhere
covered this event for both
days. The convention offered
training classes for grassroots
volunteers in how to operate
political campaigns and build
voter turnout. Senator Scott
Brown's (the Massachusetts
Miracle) Internet campaign
manager demonstrated how to
use the Internet for fund-raising
and mobilizing volunteers.
The chairman of the California

Republican Party taught a class
about building a campaign from
the grassroots level.
Then came Sarah Palin and
she was incredible. Her scope
- of knowledge on issues of the
day has certainly grown from
two years ago, when she was
suddenly plucked from Alaska
to run as vice president. By the
end of her speech, everyone in
the banquet hall was standing
and shouting "Run Sarah Run."
The national news media was
shocked and had a "deer in the
headlights" look on their faces.
Lastly, the press kept
wanting to know the future
of the TEA Party movement.
The 2010 short-term goal is
to elect fiscally conservative
candidates at all levels of
government, and to "retire"
free-spending incumbent
politicians, particularly those in
WaH n on, Df a historical
comparison, you have to recall
overo2u f rearasth dwhmned
tea into the Boston Harbor to
protest high British taxes. They
had no idea their act would
spark to ignite many like-
minded colonists into action
and they couldn't dream their
protest would be recorded in the
history books.
can't predict the future either,
whether it will flounder of
flourish. But, at this moment
in time, it is the most exciting,
energetic political discourse in
the whole county. It has sparked
a discussion that may change
course o our great nation.
Thanks again for asking me to
go and represent TaylD nrt

It was a great experience and
Learned much that's applicable
to government locally, in

pieces on TV news reports, but

this was its first convention.
