VOL. II Issue 3H
Just when Ameriica needed some good news for a change, kidnaped teen Elizabeth Smart was found alive as the result of some very observant citizens. Smith was taken from her bedroom window by someone who looked like the man, Brian Mitchell, also known as Immanuel, who was found to be with her when she was discovered.
It has been widely circulated, but not confirmed that this man, Immanuel, who took her, was a Mormon looking for a "second wife". Other sources claim he was using her for a substitute daughter. Either way, she was seen wearing a veil at some sort of party with Imannuel and his wife sometime last fall.
The honeymoon may be over between Governor Rounds and the state legislature. It seems that Gov. Rounds is not pleased with some bills that were passed on the 40th day of the 40 day session on Saturday, because they were, in fact, passed on Sunday.
The state legislature has long had a custom of "covering the clock" after midnight. As we understand it, that means that time stands still and Saturday's business really didn't drip into Sunday. Perhaps someone with legistative experience could correct us if we are wrong on that.
Gov. Rounds contends that the State Constitution forbid's the legislators from working on Sunday. There has been no word on what prevented them from working the other 6 days of the week, however.
The Governor and the lawmakers feel so strongly about this issue that they are willing to go to court to settle the issue.

People in the USA have not exactly warmed up to the idea of war with Iraq. I think I know why. It's the music we listen to. In the days of WWI, patriot George M. Cohan, Who really was born on the 3rd of July, not the 4th as he claimed, wrote "Over There" which we'll have on South Dakota Songbook later on in this edition. In WWII There was "We did it before and we will do it again", "Johnny get your gun Again" and "We Got a Job to do". In the Vietnam conflict, there were songs like, "We got to get out of this place", "Give Peace a Chance", And "War!, What is it good for? (Absolutly Nuthin')". Needless to say, Vietnam was nothing like the other two wars.
Then there was Desert Storm. Hank Williams Jr., whose composing style is nothing like George M. Cohan, Wrote "Don't give us a Reason" and several other songs featured on an album called "America (The Way I See It)". Needless to say America kicked major butt on that one. Maybe Hank'll come through for us again.
Johnnie, get your gun,
Get your gun, get your gun,
Take it on the run,
On the run, on the run.
Hear them calling, you and me,
Every son of liberty.
Hurry right away,
No delay, no delay,
Make your daddy glad
To have had such a lad.
Tell your sweetheart not pine,
To be proud her boy's in line.
Over there, over there,
Send the word, send the word over there--
That the Yanks are coming,
The Yanks are coming,
The drums rum-tumming
So prepare, say a pray'r,
Send the word, send the word to beware.
We'll be over, we're coming over,
And we won't come back till it's over
Over there.
Johnnie, get your gun,
Get your gun, get your gun,
Johnnie show the Hun
Who's a son of a gun.
Hoist the flag and let her fly,
Yankee Doodle do or die.
Pack your little kit,
Show your grit, do your bit.
Yankee Doodle fill the ranks,
From the towns and the tanks.
Make your mother proud of you,
And the old Red, White and Blue.
(repeat chorus twice)
