Ice Ice Baby

Well Mother Nature came to call and boy did she. Like you, we were socked in a bit, power off and on. I must admit the news folks had been preaching for quite a while that it was coming and, for once, they nailed it. If you were like me, you were stocking up, hoping for the best preparing for the worse. Those preparations certainly paid off. A hard job was handled very well by Hominy’s Electric Department and Dispatch. Hats off to them and all those who were there when and if needed. Many others were there waiting the call if needed. Salute!

I have seen some attend our community movies and believe they are the future of Hominy.

A Date that will Live

Today in 1941, as America’s Pacific fleet lay in ruins at Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt requests, and receives, a declaration of war against Japan. “Yesterday,” the president proclaimed, “December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.” Roosevelt’s 10-minute speech, ending with an oath, “So help us God”, was greeted in the House by thunderous applause and stamping of feet.
