I am sorry for last week not getting the Bellmont News out. When we came home from church Sunday the mail box lid was open with mail. We were in a hurry to get to the concert at WVC so we quickly ate lunch. When I pulled out of the drive to go to Mt. Carmel and the mail box lid was open but no mail. I went to the concert and when I came home, I walked all along the roadway, through our yard and could not find a single piece of paper with news for the paper. I am still baffled as to where the mail went. Again I am sorry for not getting the Bellmont News in the paper last week.

Please keep the United States, our government, and the military in our prayers for guidance of our Great Country.

Please keep our Policemen and Policewomen, our EMTs, First Responders and all who help keep us safe in your prayers. They are risking their lives to keep us safe.

WOW! WOW! Fall harvest is in full swing so be very careful and watch for the big machinery on our roads and highways. It is exciting to watch what the farmers are doing to harvest the fields and how quickly they are harvesting it.

2. Wrinkles don't hurt.

3. Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

4. Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.

5. Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
