The 3-foot-tall lithographed tin Pagoda held six different spices that were ladled into bags by the store clerk in about 1890. Why not collect food-storage antiques? Food had to be specially prepared to last during the centuries before ice boxes and refrigerators. Long hours were spent smoking, pickling, drying and canning foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables were available only "in season." Ice boxes were used in the 19th and 20th centuries. A block of ice was cut from a frozen lake then wrapped and stored in a special zinc-lined box. It melted as it cooled, and the housewife had to empty the pan of melted ice water at least once a day. The first electric refrigerator was made in 1911, and by 1923, Frigidaire was selling a home refrigerator. Early refrigerators used freon in the cooling process, but to keep the planet green, the chemical was outlawed in the 1990s. The refrigerator-freezer combination we use today was first sold in 1939. But spices still are used to store, flavor and preserve food. Grocery stores of the 1890s sold spices from a large container, or later, the small- sized tins sometimes used today. A spice display was an important part of the store. A 36-inch-tall Pagoda-shaped spice bin with original paint sold at a Showtime auction in 2015. It was a six-sided tower that held ginger, cinnamon, mustard, cloves, allspice and pepper. The revolving tower had ornate lithographed labels on the tin sections. The rare antique sold for $3,300. If that is too big, look for the small (2- to 3-inch) tins that used to hold spices. The best have unusual graphics. Prices range from $5 to $25. They are still found at house sales, flea markets and online, but rarely at auctions because they are so inexpensive. * * * Q: I'm downsizing and want to sell my dining-room furniture. It's made of maple and is marked "A genuine Cushman Colonial Creation made in Bennington, Vermont." I have a table with two leaves, hutch, six chairs and a wet sink. How much do you think I can get? A: The H.T. Cushman Manufacturing Co. was in business in North Bennington, Vermont.from1892to1971,when it was bought by Green Mountain Furniture. The company was founded by Henry Theodore Cushman. The furniture probably won't sell in antiques sales, but a house or garage sale could be good. You should get about one- third the price of comparable new furniture if your set is in great condition. * * * CURRENT PRICES Elvis Presley record, "All Shook Up," RCA, 45 RPM, 1957, $10 Folk-art birdhouse, wood, steep pitched roof, two windows and door, 21 x 21 inches, $60.

Pope Calls For Re-Wording In The Lord’s Prayer Pope Francis has called for a re-wording of the Lord’s Prayer, saying the current translation gives God a bad name and, essentially, does not give the devil his due. In a TV2000 interview, Francis questioned the wording of the line “Lead us not into temptation,” suggesting it was a bad translation because it implies God actively pushes people into temptation. "It's not a good translation," he said in the interview. "I am the one who falls. It's not Him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen. A father doesn't do that; a father helps you to get up immediately. It's Satan who leads us into temptation — that's his department." The Catholic Church in France agreed to switch from the French equivalent of "Do not submit us to temptation" to "Do not let us enter into temptation." The pope said he was impressed with the new wording. Source: New York Times, summarized by Pastor Rick Ask Pastor Rick What is the difference between the temple and the synagogue? Thanks for your question. The Temple, once located in Jerusalem, was the center of Jewish worship from the time of Solomon. It was the one and only place where sacrifices and certain other Jewish rituals were performed. It was partially destroyed at the time of the Babylonian Exile, 586 BC, and then rebuilt. That temple was known as the Second Temple. The Second Temple was remodeled by Herod the Great, around 20 BC. The remodeled Temple was the one that Jesus and His disciples would have known that we read about in the New Testament. That Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, and has not been replaced to this day. According to the Jewish Virtual Library, a synagogue, at minimum, is a house of prayer. Although a Jew can satisfy their daily obligation of prayer anywhere, there are some prayers that can only be recited in the presence or a quorum, 10 adult men. A synagogue also serves as a place of study. Children receive their basic religious education there. However, for the observant Jew, study of sacred texts is a life-long task. The synagogue normally has a well- stocked library of Jewish texts for members of the community to study. Most synagogues function as a Town Hall of sorts. Religious and non-religious activities are held there. Synagogues collect and dispense money and other items for aiding the poor and needy.

Using UNICEF guidelines (age, height, weight, and upper arm measurement), we gave packets of enriched peanut butter to those children that needed additional nourishment. At the Nkhoma Hospital, we went room to room with the chaplains, visiting the sick. We met with patients, many with terminal illnesses, to encourage them and share the love of Christ with them. One evening, there was a showing of The Jesus Film at the hospital. We could figure out the events of film but could not understand it as the narrator and all the characters spoke in Chechewa. During our time there, we walked through corn fields to very small villages (as few as 5 or 6 huts). Whatever work the people were doing, we joined them in their tasks. With the help of translators, we got to know a little bit of their lives and lifestyle. At one hut, a woman had a large open wound on her ankle. We were able to get her to the hospital (about an hour away) where she received the care she needed. Helping in an African orphanage is always a delight. Many of the children at the Nkhoma AfriCare orphanage are HIV positive. We walked with the older children to and from school, and held, hugged, and played with the little ones every day. To help the orphanage in another way, Hillside Church purchased 500+ baby bottles, 20,000+ Band-Aids, and an assortment of creams and salves, to help its day-to-day needs. For the older children of the orphanage and villages, Hillside also purchased 20 soccer balls and 4 pumps. Real soccer balls are a premium in the villages. They typically play soccer with balls made from plastic bags wound with string! The saddest day of our trip came when one of the orphans died at 3 months of age. His mother was only 15 years old when she gave birth (10 weeks premature), and was HIV positive. This was our 5th mission trip to Malawi. Everyone on the team, and others in our church, are ready for the next one! Hillside Church has ongoing mission work in Malawi, Kenya, Cambodia, and Thailand.

CDE has collaborated with ACS WASC in order to align the accreditation process with the planning process for California public schools required by state and federal statues in the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and the Local Control Accountability Plan; the ACS WASC/CDE Focus on Learning (FOL) Joint Process Guide is the collaborative process that helps schools identify and implement school improvement needs and supports accountability. Another example is the partnership with the University of California regarding the a-g course requirements. The ACS WASC Commission is composed of 32 representatives from the educational organizations that it serves; this includes representatives from the Association of California School Administrators, Association of Christian Schools International, California Department of Education, California School Boards Association, California Charter Schools, California Teachers Association, California Federation of Teachers, East Asia Regional Council of Schools, Hawaii State Department of Education, National Lutheran School Accreditation, Pacific Union Conference of Seventh- day Adventists, and the Western CatholicEducationalAssociation.
