I want to take this opportunity to thank all the great people of Woodbury and Cannon County for making the past 14 years a joy and privilege to serve you as Owner-Editor-Publisher of our county’s newspaper, the Cannon Courier. I cannot begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed my association with you, the subscriber, the advertiser, business owner and the citizen who had a dog, boat or car to sell, a yard sale to advertise or a house to rent. Each ad was just as important, no matter the size. You were a customer and I thank you for your support.
In Genesis 1, verse 1 of the Bible, it is recorded that God made heaven and earth. From there He went on to make everything we enjoy and have on this planet, which we never should forget. He also states in this chapter of Genesis that what He saw that He created was very good. In verse ten, the forming of dry land and water is mentioned, and since that very beginning it has been under His control. But, if the U.S. Senate has its way with the Clean Water Restoration Act currently being considered up in D.C., all waters falling on the USA from the heavens above may soon be under the control of the U.S. government.
