the WARNER MONARCHS are still undefeated and headed back to defend their state title in HURON next week, after beating the SUMMIT EAGLES last night in WARNER….you should have seen it….the gym was 75 percent packed at 6:15 last night!!!! and she was really packed by game time…..we’re so proud of our girls…sometimes when a team is 30-0 and undefeated, the kids get cocky, or there’s one main star on the team…that’s not so with our girls…they’re all level headed, and the bench runs deep….GO MONARCHS…..GREAT SEASON..NOW LET’S GET TO STATE….

3.  ALEX KNEELAND of SUMMIT played her last game in high school volleyball last night in WARNER….she is an incredible player, and it’s been fun watching her….no doubt, she will ROCK at college volleyball…speaking of that, the other night when WARNER beat NORTHWESTERN for the district title, i went up and congratulated NORTHWESTERN star JUSSY TUSCHERER on a fantastic season…i told her that there are about five girls in the state that i would NOT stand on the other side of the net when they’re in the air to slam, and she’s one of them…RACHEL ROGERS of WARNER is one of them, too….JUSSY is incredible….and she’s a junior….she’ll be back next year in a big big way….

4.  how’s this for ironic?  a few years back, the WARNER girls volleyball team played a “benefit” game at the WARNER gym against the “WARNER MAN’S CLUB”, which i was a member of…..all of a sudden while i was in the front line, here comes a girl over the net and SLAMS the ball right in my face…BREAKING MY GLASSES….know who it was?  my son TYLER’S girlfriend KELSEY….isn’t that crazy?

A man in Topeka , Kansas decided to write a book about churches around 
the country.  He started by flying to San Francisco and started working 
east from there.  

Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making 

He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued 
with a sign, which read “Calls: $10,000  a minute..”

Seeking out the pastor he asked about the phone and the sign.   The 
pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to 
heaven and if he pays the price he can talk directly to GOD.

The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As he continued to 
visit churches in Seattle , Phoenix , Salt Lake City , Denver , 
Oklahoma City, and  around the United States , he found more phones, 
with the same sign, and  the same answer from each pastor.

Finally, he arrived in  South Dakota , upon entering a church in  Hecla , South Dakota 

 behold – he saw the usual golden telephone.   But THIS time, the sign 
read “Calls: 35 cents.”

Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor, “Reverend, I have been in 
cities & towns all across the country and in each church I have found this 
golden telephone and have been told it is a direct line to Heaven and 
that I could talk to GOD, but in the other churches the cost was 
$10,000 a minute.  Your sign reads only 35 cents a call.


The pastor, smiling benignly, replied, “Son, you’re in  South Dakota now … 
You’re in God’s Country, It’s a local call.”
