TARC MEETINGS- BE THERE OR WALK!


sorry to nbe so blunt, but if the TARC passengers in this city don’t get going we’re going to lose the bus service in this city. We are being RIPPED OFF folks. They are cutting routes and people are losing their jobs. That’s what’s been going on- there’s a way to stem the tide. Contact the following person and also show up to this meeting. Don’t just sit at home or you may not be heard. Here’s the information:

E-mail: Mrs. Grantz at JGRANTZ@ridetarc.org give suggestions and if you have any constructive ideas go for it! you can also call her at : 561-5112. Most importantly show up though. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IT COULD IMPACT LOUISVILLE PERMANENTLY! This could also affect TARC 3 service as well. As you know where TARC  goes so does TARC 3 Services. Anybody disabled in ANY WAY SHAPE, OR FORM SHOW UP TO THIS MEETING! Pass this on to folks on your e-mail lists that doesn’t drive or even has a disability of some sort, or is a small business person who doesn’t have a car. This is so important I really feel strongly about it. Go to: www.ridetarc.org  for more information or check the METRO section of the Courier Journal at www.courier-journal.com/metro

E-mail this to everybody on your list this is important.

 

 

Blunder Costs Dutch Skater Gold Medal — Olympics — 2010 Winter Olympics from Vancouver FanHouse


Blunder Costs Dutch Skater Gold Medal — Olympics — 2010 Winter Olympics from Vancouver FanHouse.

This is tragic- just when an athlete doesn’t think things can get any worse, they do. The Dutch Olympian here named Sven Kramer finished the last 8 laps in the wrong lane and got NOTHING! He was apparently a good athlete as well. This is a good example of how communication is key when you’re in an athletic event. Pray that he realizes this is only one competition and keeps on trying. Also pray that he stays away from drugs and alcohol- that can destroy an athletic career real fast- just ask Tanya Harding and Oksana Baiul. There’s more to being an Olympian athlete than athletic prowess, intelligence weighs in and awareness of time and timing.

 Concentration is key even Special Olympians know this. Just praythatthis isn’t the end for Kramer I get the impression he’s going to be very hard on himself and his coach. This is not something you can just shrug off- there’s money unfortunately involved. That used to not be the case, the gold was enough, that brought the prestige alone, but we’ve complicated athletics with money and that can be just as devestating if the athlete in question put him or herself in debt training for the Olympics.

If you’re wanting to go into the Olympics, or your a Special Olympian, get what you can afford and don’t sink too much into it. This isn’t your life, it’s part of your life. We need to remember what the Apostle Paul said though: I Corinthians 9:24- “”Doyou not know that in  race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold of [the prize] and make it yours.” Also Joshua 1:8 figures in : ” Be strong in the Lord and fear not.” You’ll make it Kramer, just hang in there! Your best option at this point, keep going and  FOCUS ON WHERE YOU ARE IN THE RACE!
