Flyer, information and entry form for the Easter 5K Run to the Cross April 19, 2014 at Taylorsville United Methodist Church

Flyer, information and entry form for the Easter 5K Run to the Cross April 19, 2014 at Taylorsville United Methodist Church


According to information from the Taylorsville United Methodist Church website, the first ever ‘Run to the Cross’ will take place this Saturday in Taylorsville, Carroll County, Maryland.

If you are looking to get outside after a long-cold winter of being cooped-up inside, this is a great family event for everyone to enjoy – and celebrate spring and Easter. And oh, was it mentioned that there will also be great food available - pulled pork sandwiches. And all the proceeds go to several good causes…

The 5 K run will go from South Carroll High School to Taylorsville United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. (TUMC). (You can run this or walk this 5 K.)

This 5 K run will travel west on Route 26, cross Route 27 (with State Police help) and travel south on Route 27 to TUMC.

At the end of the race enjoy live music, pulled pork sandwiches (free for runners) and the final awards ceremony.

This run is a joint venture brought to you by TUMC and SCHS’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes. (FCA)

Proceeds will be given to both the FCA and the No More Malaria Campaign. (Every 60 seconds a child dies in Africa of Malaria. This campaign has already cut that number in half, we want to stop deaths from malaria.) Your entry fee will be tax deductible.

There are two ways to register: One is to download the run entry form, fill it out, and mail it back to TUMC along with a check. Please register by April 6th. The registration fee is $10 for students; $15 for SCHS Alum; and $20 for adults.

The second way to register is to click below. Make sure you have a credit card ready and you can register totally on line.

Note there is a 2-4 dollar increase to offset on-line costs.

While many Christian congregations have activities or services scheduled for Maundy Thursday or Good Friday, Easter Saturday is often a quiet day that slips by before the celebrations on Easter Sunday.

But Taylorsville United Methodist Church is hoping to start a new Easter Saturday tradition with the “Run to the Cross” 5K race.

“The whole point is you’re running to the cross the day before Easter and looking to see it’s empty, and the next day you’re going to see that the tombstone is rolled away,” said the Rev. Sarah Dorrance, pastor of Taylorsville UMC. “It’s very specific, rain or shine, on Easter Saturday.”

Dorrance said she got the idea of the church hosting a 5K race while talking to colleagues from other parts of the country. Read more here: http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/features/religion/running-to-the-cross/article_5a6ef6b4-c8c1-5fa0-a54d-5b161e2760f9.html

In 1973, the government gave away a handful of aluminum pennies now worth an estimated $250,000.
It wants them back.


This has put the government at odds with two California men were planning to auction off one of the pennies. Now, they are asking a judge to decide to whom the penny belongs.

New Virginia law protects farmers from meddling local officials - by By Bonner Cohen, Ph. D

New Virginia law protects farmers from meddling local officials - by By Bonner Cohen, Ph. D

Fauquier County officials forced family farmer Martha Boneta to cease selling produce from her own 64-acre farm, and so she took action and had Commonwealth law changed... 

Fauquier County Virginia officials threatened a family farmer, Martha Boneta with $5,000 per-day fines for hosting a birthday party for eight 10-year-old girls without a permit...


… opponents of the bill, including well-funded environmental organizations and power-hungry county governments – both determined to preserve strict land-use controls – reportedly employed lobbyists to kill the bill.  In the end, highly motivated citizens triumphed over highly paid lobbyists...





By Bonner Cohen, Ph. D. March 31, 2014


In a hard-fought and stunning victory for family farmers and property rights throughout the Commonwealth, Gov. Terry McAuliffe on March 5 signed into law legislation solidifying Virginia’s status as a right-to-farm state by limiting local officials’ ability to interfere with normal agricultural operations.


The governor’s signature marks the latest chapter in a swirling controversy that attracted nationwide attention in 2012 when the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors forced family farmer Martha Boneta to cease selling produce from her own 64-acre farm. No longer allowed to sell the vegetables she had harvested, Boneta donated the food to local charities lest it go to waste.


Fauquier County officials threatened Boneta with $5,000 per-day fines for hosting a birthday party for eight 10-year-old girls without a permit, and advertising pumpkin carvings. Seeing the county’s action against Boneta as a brazen effort to drive her off her land, Virginians from all walks of life rallied to her defense.  Supporters gathered in Warrenton, the county seat, for a peaceful “pitchfork protest” to vent their anger over what an out-of-control local government had done to a law-abiding citizen....


[...]



By contrast, opponents of the bill, including well-funded environmental organizations and power-hungry county governments – both determined to preserve strict land-use controls – reportedly employed lobbyists to kill the bill.  In the end, highly motivated citizens triumphed over highly paid lobbyists...
