Harnessing talents

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

Women met Tuesday, Jan. 17, who believe in the values of a strong U.S. Constitutional government, with more power in the state and local government; women who believe our federal government is spending out of control, to the point of pushing our nation into the poor house. We call ourselves conservatives.

We call ourselves the Cherokee County Republican Women.

From our program, we learned important lessons. Each person has talents to use that are so very important to the success of a group. Every person is key to success. Each person’s talents contributed to the success of the group, and without the talents of even one person, the success was less.

Are your talents hidden?

A challenge was offered to each person to bring answers to our next meeting – “What would I do if I knew I could not fail?”

Another interesting but disturbing bit of information related to us concerned the spending of the federal government. Put America’s debt into an example that is easier to comprehend: a family’s yearly finances. This family’s annual income was $21,700, but they spent $38,200, thus acquiring $16,500 of new debt. The debt currently owed on their credit card is $142,710. So correct their “who cares, as long as we are in power attitude,” Congress cuts spending by $385.

Realizing, once again, the importance of our work, we got busy applying our talents to planning and volunteering for our biggest fundraiser of the year – the community flea market. The flea market will be Feb. 3–4, beginning at 7 a.m., in the Cherokee County Community Building. On Friday, Feb. 3, the event will close at 5 p.m. On Saturday, Feb. 4, closing time is slated for 2 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are available.

Our next meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 11 a.m., at Go Ye Village.
