Poop Patrol Proclamation

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Pet poop on the pathway is problematic!
Please pick up your pet's "presents" and place them in your rubbish.  
Pet poop left behind will earn a polite persuasive reproach from the Poop Patrol.....
"Hey!  Pick up your poop!"

Thanks Poop Patrol (you know who you are)

Beginning Friday, Oct. 2 and for the two weeks following, Oct. 9 and Oct. 16, at 11:30, you can hear the story of early Green Valley. Just tune into KGVY 1080 AM or 101.5 FM on those successive Fridays.

Due to Covid, for the first time since 1945, the National Spelling Bee has been 
cancil... cancul... cansel...  It's been called off.
The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will.

At the Baptist church the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistery and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week.

The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water-slide.

But the Catholic church came up with a very creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.

Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven't seen a squirrel since.
