Sunday, July8

Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father.Matt. 24:36.

Jesus said those words while he was on earth. But Christ has been empowered in heaven to wage war against Satans world. (Rev. 19:11-16) Thus, it is reasonable to conclude that Jesus now knows when Armageddon will occur. We, however, do not know. It is imperative that we stay watchful until the tribulation occurs. Yet, the timing of that event has never been uncertain to Jehovah. He has determined exactly when the end will come. He is counting down the time to the start of the great tribulation, and its start will not be late! (Hab. 2:1-3) How can we be sure of this? Jehovahs prophecies have always been fulfilled right on time! We can be certain that Jehovahs promise of deliverance through the great tribulation will not fail us either. However, if we want to survive the destruction of this system, we must keep on the watch. w16.07 2:4-6

Peter said to him: Even if all the others are stumbled, I will not be.Mark 14:29.

At a critical moment, the apostles abandoned Jesus. Peter had earlier stated that even if the others did that, he would not. (Mark 14:27-31,50) Nevertheless, when Jesus was being taken into custody, all the apostlesincluding Peterabandoned him. Peter repeatedly denied even knowing Jesus. (Mark 14:53, 54, 66-72) However, Peter showed remorse, and Jehovah continued to use him. Had you been a disciple then, would Peters actions have affected your loyalty to Jehovah? Today, will you recognize that Jehovah may allow time for repentance on the part of wrongdoers and that he will ultimately correct the wrongs and act in a just way? On the other hand, sometimes those who have been guilty of serious sins reject Jehovahs mercy and are unrepentant. In such situations, will you have confidence that Jehovah will in time judge such wrongdoers, perhaps removing them from the congregation? w16.06 4:8, 9

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father ... comfort your hearts and strengthen you.2Thess. 2:16, 17, ftn.

A great blessing that comes to us through Jehovahs undeserved kindness is comfort for a distressed heart. (Ps. 51:17) To Christians in Thessalonica, who were experiencing persecution, Paul wrote the words found in todays text. How comforting it is to be aware of the loving care that we receive from Jehovah because of his generous kindness! As sinners, on our own we would have no hope. (Ps. 49:7,8) But Jehovah provides us with a wonderful hope. Jesus promised his followers: This is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life. (John 6:40) Yes, the hope of eternal life is a gift, a wonderful expression of Gods undeserved kindness. Paul, who certainly appreciated that fact, said: The undeserved kindness of God has been manifested, bringing salvation to all sorts of people.Titus 2:11. w16.07 3:14, 15

Column: Save time with an online library account – Cody Enterprise

Posted: at 5:47 pm

What if you could search library collections across Wyoming from the comfort of your home? With an online library account you can do just that and at your convenience. You may renew material (except DVDs) that you borrowed from the Park County Public Libraries. You may place holds at no cost on material from the Powell, Cody and Meeteetse libraries.

Still cant find what you are looking for? For a small fee to cover postage, an interlibrary loan allows you to borrow material from other Wyoming libraries. Katherine Thompson recently demonstrated how she places an online request. That movie is posted at parkcountylibrary.org/2017/08/16/your-online-library-account.

Grace Solie recorded her My List methodology and it is also posted at the preceding link. My List will track books for research or to borrow in the future. Solie usually emails her lists to herself for future reference.

The list arrives with live links to the catalog record, which makes review fast and easy. Lists may be named or added to a temporary folder. Students in the Homeschool Group will find this tool particularly valuable.

To set up an online library account, go to the renew items tab on the far right side of parkcountylibrary.org home page. Enter your library card number with no spaces. Accept the default PIN of WYLD.

That takes you directly to the Wyoming Library Database or WYLD, the state-wide catalog. From there it is possible to narrow your search to individual Park County libraries or to see what is available statewide.

The PIN can be changed. It is also possible to retrieve your PIN. If you have forgotten it, call us at (307) 527-1880.

The Cody library will no longer be open on Sunday afternoons.

Lunch service has been discontinued in the Biblio Bistro. Baked goods and beverages will be served Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. until further notice.

Edie Hanafin Phillips retired Aug. 31 after 25 years service. Leslie Colin Tribble will be the new tech services supervisor.

Until we process all the books recently received, we cannot accept more donations.

September has been designated Library Card Sign-up month by the American Library Association. Do you have yours?

Library programs are free and open to the public.

In The Ghosts in the Green Grass, 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 9, Bud Alley compares the fate of the 7th Cavalry commanded by General George Armstrong Custer in 1876 and his own experiences in the Vietnam War with the 2nd Battalion of the 7th Cavalry. A book signing and sale will follow his author talk.

Meet Montana mystery author Keith McCafferty, 6 p.m., Friday, Sept. 15. Free tickets will be available before McCaffertys visit. He wrote The Royal Wulff Murders, The Gray Ghost Murders, Dead Mans Fancy, Crazy Mountain Kiss, Buffalo Jump Blues and Cold Hearted River. His books will be for sale and a book signing will follow the program. McCafferty will inscribe attendees own copies, too.

The Many Loves of Buffalo Bill: The True Story of Life on the Wild West Show with Chris Enss, 6 p.m., Thurs., Sept. 21. This author talk is hosted by Legends Bookstore and will include a book signing and sale.

Toddler Time for ages 1-3 with parent or caregiver, 10-10:20 a.m., Mondays. Short stories accompanied by music and movement develop a comfort in the library and love for great stories.

Great Courses series

Available courses include such titles as "Forensic History: Crimes, Frauds, and Scandals," "Great American Music: Broadway Musicals," "Our Night Sky" and "Fundamentals of Sustainable Living." Visit the website at http://www.plymouthpubliclibrary.org to see all of the titles and course descriptions.

The Great Courses are meticulously produced following the vision of the company's founder, Tim Rollins. As he puts it, his idea in founding the company was to"record lectures by the greatest professors in America, professors who were not just experts in their field but who were also passionate and truly gifted communicators, so anyone could enjoy learning from them, without the pressure of homework or exams." The company conducts a painstaking search for the best professors in each subject.

"Of the more than 500,000 college professors in the world," Rollins said, "only the top 1 percent are selected to teach one of the Great Courses. Our esteemed faculty includes award-winning experts and professors from the most respected institutions in the world, selected by our customers exclusively for their ability to teach."

The Great Courses titles are now available at the main library in the Reference Department shelved in the computer room. They can be checked out for 14 days and can be renewed, provided they are not on reserve for another patron.

Access to U.S. military service records

The Plymouth Public Library is now offering its cardholders access to Fold3 Library Edition by Ancestry. This subscription database provides convenient access to U.S. military records, including the stories, photos and personal documents of the men and women who served. This continually growing collection contains millions of records from world-class archives, many of which are exclusively available on Fold3. With content from the Revolutionary War onward, Fold3 Library Edition is an invaluable research resource for historians, genealogists, researchers, military enthusiasts, veterans and their families, teachers and battle reenactors. Researchers can access more than 440 million records beginning with the Revolutionary War. The new user interface makes it easy to search historical documents from diverse sources including the War of 1812 Pension Applications and Service Records, Civil War Widows Pensions, and records of the United States Colored Troops, and, unique non-military sources such as Native American records, FBI Case Files, and Holocaust records.

The Fold3 name comes from a traditional flag folding ceremony in which the third fold is made in honor and remembrance of veterans who served in defense of their country and to maintain peace throughout the world.

The new library edition can be used from any location and also provides access to personalization tools. Library patrons may choose to create a personal user account to build memorial pages, submit annotations to any image, or leave comments. See http://www.plymouthpubliclibrary.org/databases/.

Surplus funds could mean restored Fairfield library hours – Fairfield Citizen

Surplus funds could mean restored Fairfield library hours

FAIRFIELD Surplus funds will allow the towns libraries to fill vacancies and restore library hours that have been cut, according to the first selectman.

But some Board of Finance members Tuesday night wondered where that money was coming from since it had not yet received documentation on unspent but budgeted funds. The finance board typically approves a list of funds to be carried over from the prior fiscal year, and spent in the current fiscal year.

Fiscal Officer Robert Mayer said there is about $1.4 million in surplus money from the last fiscal year. Chairman Thomas Flynn asked how much of that departments have asked to carry over to spend on budgeted items.

The carry overs arent much at all, Mayer said, adding that the town will focus on using that money to make up for any state revenue it ends up not receiving.

Theres a press release from the first selectman talking about the library, finance board member James Walsh said. We know nothing about any of these numbers.

Library hours as of Aug. 14

Fairfield Woods branch:

Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Friday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Saturday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Sundays in the fall 1 p.m. -4 p.m.

The Board of Finance is scheduled to meet again on Sept. 26, and vote on a list of proposed carry over expenditures.

On Aug. 31, Tetreau sent out a release where he announced 2017 is higher than anticipated due to strong fourth quarter results realized from expense holdbacks and controls, including a hiring freeze, a higher than budgeted tax collection rate, and strong fourth quarter investment returns and fee revenues.

Just a few weeks earlier, the town had announced reduced hours at both the main and branch library, in part due to questions about what state revenue will come Fairfields way once a state budget is finally adopted.

After reviewing the numbers, Tetreau said, he was pleased the town has surplus funds available that could be used to fill the open positions and reinstate library hours, although he said it will take time to fill those positions. Tetreau anticipated restoring the library hours sometime this fall.

Tetreau said the town still anticipates a loss of state revenue, but said the surplus could be used to supplement the new budget should the Board of Finance choose to carry forward the fiscal year 2017 surplus to the fiscal year 2018, which would serve to mitigate some of the loss of state revenue.

He said it is similar to last year when at Flynns suggestion, the finance board voted to carry forward a significant portion of the fiscal year 2016 into the fiscal year 2017, again to make up for the loss of state revenue.

The surplus funds could also be used to fill two vacancies at the Parks and Recreation Department, according to Tetreau.

The hiring freeze remains in effect for all other departments, and certain capital spending, such as paving, is still on hold.
