Banner Day 12.27.12

Noticed today in the Brenham Banner-Press:

“Today’s Verse,” from Ecclesiastes 5:19, moved to the bottom of Page 1, where it appeared underneath “Today’s Thought,” a quote from Sir James Matthew Barrie, the Scottish dramatist actor who wrote “Peter Pan”: “I’m not young enough to know everything.”

From the lead story on the fifth annual ‘Koledy Polskie,” a Polish caroling celebration that dates to the 14th century, coming Saturday in Chappell Hill: “Participants are also encouraged to dress in nativity costumes. ‘However, you do not have to have anything elaborate or fancy,’ said Mazurkiewicz. ‘You may dress as a beggar, an angel, a shepherd, a devil, St. Nickolas, a wise man and/or make a homemade costume.'”

Banner Day 2.26.12

3 things I read today in the Brenham Banner-Press:

1. 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10 appeared in the Page 1 “Today’s Verse” box, placed prominently in the center above the masthead: “Do you know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolators nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”

2. From the story, “Adults are acting up at Unity Theatre”: “Acting can be stress free for some. Damaris Koziol has had the bug for a long time but never acted. However, she did dance. ‘I did exotic dance with fire and feathers which was exciting, but I enjoy this as well.'”

3. From the Brenham Beat column: “Sunday at 9:41 p.m., three females between the ages of 21 and 48 years were caught shoplifting at Walmart. Because the females were accompanying several children and claiming they had no one to call to take charge of the children it was decided to refer the case for further investigation and no arrests were made at the time.”
