AfriForum said the latest killings brought the number of farm murders in the country to seven since the start of the year. “This is more than one farm murder every two days. If this trend is any indication of the rate of farm murders in 2015, it means that there will be more than 200 farm murders,” AfriForum deputy CEO Ernst Roets said in a statement. He said that over the weekend President Jacob Zuma during the ANC’s 103rd anniversary had made an appeal to farmers to improve the living conditions of farmworkers. “Yet, not a word is being said about the thousands of farmers who have been killed in recent years,” Roets said.
PackAge News 24 Comment: During the 103rd birthday celebrations this weekend Zuma spoke his usual balderdash, blaming apartheid and the white man for everything that they have failed at! Of course he also spoke on corruption, for he is fully qualified on the subject therefore the countries most experienced and leading speaker on the subject! He mentioned safety and security and protection for citizens then emphasized Women and Children etc, but never ONCE mentioned the killing of farmers!!!!!!!! Then he could not resist by ending off with singing and dancing to the song “Machine Whami” In other words he is continually in public, encouraging the killing and genocide of the Boer

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jethro Pugh #75 is part of the coldest game in NFL history. In 1969, I meet Jethro Pugh plus Dallas Cowboys Doomsday Defense defensive end George Andrie (#66) and offensive tackle Rayfield Wright (#70) at Jersey Lilly banquet hall in San Antonio, TX. Sad to say that Jethro Pugh dies at 70 on Wednesday, January 7, 2015.

CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI – ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Luau Larry and The Sandcrabs. I have a Yaseu FT-857D for amateur use but for now have taken it and put it in my closet. I also have a HT from Alinco. But for most of my Ham activity use EchoLink on my Android. There are a lot of places I would like to visit, but I also want to visit places here in Dallas while I can. My best times traveling have been with groups large enough to break up into smaller groups, so we could do various things on a trip. Also I like to have enough time that everything is not on a tight schedule but there is time to enjoy the events or activities. Like why Big Bands gave way to Combos, etc. My worse subject in school was Math, but for some reason it is the subject I use the most in my hobbies and other activities. I find some things that Count can not be counted, and everything that can be counted does not Count. I like the Kings, Counts, Dukes, and Earls of Jazz and Blues: King Oliver, B.B. King, Freddie King, Count Basie, Duke Robbilard, Earl Hines. Charles George, KC5RAI

MIKE MCDERMOTT [Actor, DJ, voiceovers, radio advertising] (Houston, TX) Subject: The State of Houston Radio – 2015. Dear Jim Rose, Frankly, I am disgusted with Houston radio – How does the 6th largest radio market have such poorly programmed commercial radio? Cumulus KHJK-FM (AirOne) is awful and is programmed by EMF in Sacramento, the same people that bring you K-LOVE in other markets. We have KSBJ-FM and other Christian radio on the AM side. We need a AAA (Adult Alternative) station in Houston. Something like KBCO-Denver or KPRI-San Diego. Are the suits in control saying that the 30-65 demo has no money? Do they believe we don’t listen to terrestrial radio and opt for Sirius XM or Pandora? Do the suits ever stop to wonder why this happened? AAA has a wide-appeal for a more discerning audience. Most who listen to this format have a higher income and higher education. If I could program a radio station in Houston, AAA format is what I would choose. Regards, Mike McDermott

George Robert [Bob] Newhart born September 5, 1929 in Oak Park, IL well-known for his deadpan and stammering delivery becomes quite popular in the 1960s with his record albums full of amusing rants: Best of the Button-Down Mind, Something Like This… and The Bob Newhart Anthology. Newhart stars in two long-running and award-winning situation comedies, first as psychologist Dr. Robert [Bob] Hartley in the 1970s sitcom The Bob Newhart Show and then as innkeeper Dick Loudon in the 1980s sitcom Newhart.
DON SUNDEEN [DJ/Hi Records promotion/TV ad prod] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Sunday funny/Website. Hey Chuck (Dunaway), just went to your website, you have reason to be proud, it’s beautifully done and portrays you well. Lot of familiar faces, loved the Danny Williams stuff and your TV character.

As we usher in the New Year the below “Jesus Today is an amazing reminder”!
I Myself go before you and will be with you. So do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. I, your loving Savior, am also infinite God! I am omnipresent: present everywhere at once. This makes it possible for Me to go ahead of you-opening up the way-without ever leaving your side.
The promise of My Presence is for all time. No matter where you go or what circumstances you encounter, I will be with you. This is the basis of your courage and confidence. Though fear and discouragement may sometimes slink into your heart, this is not their rightful home. Your heart is My dwelling place, and those hurtful emotions are not from Me. In fact, My perfect Love casts out fear. So check your heart from time to time, to see if fear and discouragement are loitering there. If you discover those unwelcome intruders, ask the Holy Spirit to function as a bouncer and boot them out! Then, encourage yourself with My promise to go before you and be with you-and let My perfect Love renew your hope.
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. -Deuteronomy 31:8”
I bow my knees to the Father . . . that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. -Ephesians 3:14, 17 nkjv
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. -1 John 4:18 nasb
