Better option for upcoming movies
Where do I begin? In regards to the Kathleen Parker March 18 column reviewing and commenting on the new movie “Noah” just released, what can I say? That’s 130 million dollars wasted on a fictionalized account of the life of Noah.
My Bible relates the account as has been told for hundreds of years and for what Paramount added there is no excuse except to spend millions of dollars to attempt to match the sensationalism of “Star Wars” and the like. What a shame to have to stoop to such a level.
On the other hand, on June 13, “Alone yet not alone”, a motion picture based on the book by Tracie Leininger Craven and based on a true story, will be released nationwide.
Given five doves by the Dove Foundation and recommended for all ages 12 and over, this movie tells the true story of a miraculous survival in the mid 1700s America and driven by their unshakable faith in God and the powerful bonds of family. You can watch the movie trailer at aloneyetnotalone.com.
Here is a movie based on a true story of how faith in God will always be rewarded n some way.
No to “Noah” and Paramount Studios and yes to “Alone yet not alone”. God kept his promise then to Noah and He keeps His promise to us today, if we will see Him.
I for one will skip the $130 million fiction story but I will purchase the first ticket to see “Alone Yet Not Alone” as He walks with me and He talks to me and He tells me I am His own and am never alone.

Change needed in assessor office
I read with interest what Mr. Donn Yarbrough wrote in the opinion section on Sunday, March 16, 2014. I must say that I agree with everything he said because I can say by what the assessor’s office did to me. They raised my taxes another $1,000 dollars this year because they said I built a 12-by-8 shed, when in reality it was a 12-by-8 canvas that I had tied up to shade me while I was working on my riding mower.
No one bothered to check on it. How ludicrous is that? Sound like they are doing their job? I don’t think so. It’s time for a change.
Like Mr. Yarbrough, I spoke with a few people and they agree with me. The assessor’s office needs to be occupied by someone who will do the job by the law. But I might also add that they need to vote change to many, many other offices. They [some elected officials] have been there so long they think they own Terre Haute.
I know I am going to vote different come this next election as I, like Mr. Yarbrough, am going to try and get out the vote. Everyone be sure to vote. God bless you and yours, and Terre Haute.
