The Commentary and What's Next?

Stark County Gen J'ers,

Ok, so this wasn't what we envisioned when we started planning the SAT. However, the election results will prove how much resolve we all have about loving the country God gave us and what our civic obligations should be.

I just wrote a stinging indictment of our culture, not exactly as a reaction to the results of the election, but as a wake-up call before the culture-at-large starts making all kinds of bad decisions. I had Steve Thorn, the CHESCA webmaster put it up on the web:

I would suggest you get something to drink before you start into it.

You students should start your own commentaries up. It will help to build your skills on framing.

Pray for all the wonderful candidates that lost Tuesday night, and their families. That would include Ken Blackwell, Rick Santorum, Jim Ryun, that's right, Ned's Father, and countless others who have been friends of ours.

What do you students think of things?

Get details from the CHESCA site about SAT

Stark County Gen J'ers,

Ok, so the blog has been a little thin lately, but only because our SAT has kicked into full gear and we are now in Day 4. If you want to read more about the journaling of the SAT, go back to the CHESCA site at:

That will give you all the details to our activities, including pics. Man, there's a lot to remember. A lot of memories...I will be posting more details, including our big bash.

Mr. Blackwell, God speed!

Less than 48 hours away from our first SAT

Stark County Gen J'ers,

Here we are, just less than 48 hours away from our very first Student Action Team! Exciting stuff. Mr. Pope's wife Rhonda just delivered their baby today, just in time to ramp up to SAT. So, here we go, four days of intense campaigning. An education in a very practical sense.

We have negotiated with the Stark County Republican Party to have a designated area for us to have our devotions and prayer to start our activities. However, they wanted to give us breakfast every morning so we will be eating at 9:00AM and hitting the phones at 10:00AM. We break for lunch around 1:00PM and the afternoon is a potporri of sign waving, door-to-door campaigning, and phone calling. All the stuff that will win elections. Four days of intense campaigning. Is everybody ready for this?

Mr. Pope and I worked on a press release that we sent out to area newspapers. Tomorrow afternoon, around the 3:00PM hour, I will be interviewed in a quick two-minute format on WNPQ 95.9 The Light's Suzy Thomas, so listen up for that. Who knows, maybe one of the newspapers will interview when we are on location.

Then at the end, the BIG ELECTION NIGHT BASH, complete with food, TV/Internet coverage on returns, fellowship, etc. Wow, will we be tired or what? But it will be lots of fun.

I can see our club really growing after the SAT is all over. Already, we have someone from Summit County interested in joining, along with a scattering of others. By the end of the school year, we should have a huge club.

Ok guys and gals, saddle up! Be ready to work on Friday!
