Public Hearing… My first post for The Bertie Lantern 2021

No Comments

I have had my site and a page dedicated to Bertie County information up for a while… just hadn’t  had the energy to search for content or decide how to post it.  So, finally, I decided to just do it.

I found this information about a  Public Hearing on the Bertie County FY 2021-2022 Budget on a site and decided to make this my first post.    See the excerpt below.  The hearing is scheduled for Monday, June 14, 2021 a 6:00 p.m.

Budgets are pretty important to a community, and  so are board meetings.  AS MUCH AS I CAN, I’ll start updating this page to reflect events, meetings, etc.  If you’d like to help, then send your information to me via a site message or Facebook.  I think this could be a great thing!

This Is Why We Must Make Republicans And Democrats Minority Parties In Congress…

They both technically are Republican, and neither represent the people as they should. I am going to lay this out in its simplest terms because this is how it was revealed to me.  Politics have always been relative to money and power.  But at some point, back in the day, the Republicans, the party of Lincoln, got involved with fighting to end slavery.  Eventually, those in the Democratic party who were fervent in their efforts to deny people their earned rights, took over the Republican party; leaving the Democratic party as a weaker version of the Republican party (because they all didn’t leave).

I Think Unions and Employment Agencies Should Have a Paradigm Shift

Unions and employment agencies both serve a good purpose in the workforce.  Now, however, it seems like there is a void that is not being filled, and somebody needs to fill it.  Many workers have their resumes out there, but either the pay is too low, or in areas where workers aren’t currently located.

What if, unions, employment agencies and these workers networked and created viable co-ops?  With a slight change in operational procedures unions and employment agencies could help workers organize and raise the needed capital to form their own small companies.  They could also assist with management, training, and identifying needs to be addressed locally, nationally and globally. Thus, reviving communities all over America. 

When Medicare-For-All passes, and it will eventually pass, unions would need to change the services they offer, and this will be a great role for them and employment agencies to fulfill.  The could also provide co-ops with negotiation training so that they can compete for government contracts to provide goods and services across the nation.  Time to discuss — what do you think?

It Is Time For An Education Overhaul

All my kids are grown, but I’m still interested in the overall community and how to advance the ideals of education; full, and truthful education; education that includes the histories of ALL people living in America.  I like the thought of public education, but, I’m becoming more and more a fan of Khan Academy, and programs like it too.  Mainly because of the what ifs.  You know, things like:

God is Not a Man… Numbers 23:19

Comments are closed.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not do it? Or, hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Numbers 23:19

It’s been a while since I’ve written any inspirational notes or encouragements here.  I think about them a lot– internally, but just haven’t put anything down.

Today, I have something for you to think about from Numbers 23:19.  “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not do it? Or, hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”  …Awesome– in so many ways.  But the long and short of it all, I believe, is that God (YHWH) is saying, I’m different.
