Twas the night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the
kitchen I was cooking and baking and moanin'
and bitchin'.
I've been here for hours; I can't stop to rest,
This room's a disaster, just look at this mess!

Tomorrow I've got thirty people to feed.
They expect all the trimmings. Who cares what I need!
My feet are both blistered; I've got cramps in my legs.
The cat just knocked over a bowl full of eggs.

There's a knock at the door and the telephone's ringing;
Frosting drips on the counter as the microwave's dinging.
Two pies in the oven, dessert's almost done;
My cookbook is soiled with butter and crumbs.

I've had all I can stand, I can't take anymore;
Then in walks my husband, spilling rum on the floor.
He weaves and he wobbles, his balance unsteady;
Then grins as he chuckles "The eggnog is ready !"

He looks all around and with total regret,
says "What's taking so long...aren' t you through in here
yet ??"
As quick as a flash I reach for a knife;
He loses an earlobe; I wanted his life !

He flees from the room in terror and pain
Now what was I doing, and what is that smell?
Oh, shit, it's the pies !! They're burned all to hell !!

I hate to admit when I make a mistake,
but I put them on BROIL instead of on BAKE.
What else can go wrong ?? Is there still more ahead ??
If this is good living, I'd rather be dead.

Lord, don't get me wrong, I love holidays;
It just leaves me exhausted, all shaky and dazed.
But I promise you one thing, If I live till next year,
You won't find me pulling my hair out in here.
I'll hire a maid, a cook, and a waiter;
and if that doesn't work, I'LL HAVE IT ALL CATERED!

Greetings !

I shall be praying and sending energy to this situation. I find this
just pure childish !!!

I have just typed a letter to send to my local "letter to the editor".
I have written many of them in the past in order to give voice to ALL
FAITHS RIGHTS, and mentioning "Pagans", Witches, Druids, Earth -
Oreinted Religions. This most recent letter is in response to the "so
called Religion Page Editors, ( I call her the christianism page
editor), recent article of, "Do Not Wish Me Happy Holidays", etc. ....

God and Goddess, Give Us Your Strength !!!

Immediate Release

For immediate release:

Wiccan Pentacle Wreath Vandalized, but Yuletide Celebrations Continue

The Wiccan pentacle wreath next to the nativity scene above City Hall
in Green Bay, Wisconsin was removed and damaged by a vandal shortly
before 1 am today, Monday, December 17.

"What a way to begin Solstice week!" said Rev. Selena Fox of Circle
Sanctuary upon learning the news about the vandalism. Representing
Circle Santuary, Rev. Fox and Assistant Minister Robert Paxton
contributed the Pagan Yuletide wreath with pentacle last week to the
public holidays display above the entrance to the City Hall building
in Green Bay , Wisconsin .

"Winter Solstice, also known as Yule, has been celebrated by peoples
of many cultures and religions since ancient times, and we are among
the thousands of Pagans today around the world who continue to
celebrate it," Fox continued. "Winter Solstice is a sacred time of
religious observances for us, not just the official start of Winter."

"Yuletide is about connecting with family, friends, and community in
the spirit of peace, love, and joy. These spiritual values will
continue to be part of our Winter Solstice celebrations this year
despite the disrespectful actions of the Grinch who tried to steal
Solstice," says Fox.

Circle Sanctuary is celebrating Winter Solstice with a series of
events this week, including a talk and open house tomorrow night at
church headquarters near Barneveld, a multicultural and interfaith
Winter Solstice Pageant at the First Unitarian Meeting House in
Madison on Friday night, and a Community Yule Festival on Saturday.
More information about Circle Sanctuary's Winter Solstice events are
on-line: http://www.circlesa

Shortly before 1 am today, Monday, December 17, Green Bay police
received a report about the vandalism. Circle Sanctuary's Yuletide
pentacle wreath was found, damaged, in the bushes near where the
nativity scene still stands. The nativity scene, purchased and
placed at the building last week by the City Council President, was
not removed or damaged by the vandal, who left his ladder at the
scene of his crime. Both ladder and pentacle wreath are presently in
police custody, and the police are continuing their investigation.

"Circle Sanctuary contributed the pentacle wreath to the display at
Green Bay City Hall for several reasons," according to Fox. "First
of all, we contributed the pentacle wreath to celebrate Yuletide. We
wanted a symbol of Winter Solstice represented in this public display
in addition to the nativity scene representing Christmas since both
religious holidays are celebrated at this time of year."

Fox adds: "The opportunity to contribute to the public display
occurred during Wisconsin 's Interfaith Awareness Week. Circle
Sanctuary viewed our contribution of the pentacle wreath as an
additional way of participating in this annual celebration of
Wisconsin 's religious diversity. Furthermore, since the Mayor
publicly announced that the display was open to symbols of other
faiths, we thought that it was important to take him up on this
invitation and begin the process of having this public display on a
government property be interfaith."

Fox continues: "If there are to be religious emblems in the public
square, this means this opportunity must be open to many religions,
not any particular one – in other words: "Many, if Any."

Fox has been involved in interfaith work and religious freedom
activism for more than forty years. Her own ancestry reflects some
of America 's religious diversity. In addition to having Native
American ancestry, she is descended from Anabaptists, Roman
Catholics, Quakers, and others who settled America in the 17th and
18th centuries to escape religious persecution in Europe .

" America has been religiously pluralistic since its earliest
beginnings. In addition to the religions of Native American peoples,
there has long been a wide variety of Christian denominations and
other faiths in this land. The founders of our nation wisely put
religious freedom and separation of church and state as cornerstones
of the United States of America . It is important that we uphold
philosophical and religious freedom for all in this country."

Although Fox and Paxton are disappointed that Circle Sanctuary's
pentacle wreath was removed and damaged, they have already been in
touch with the City Attorney and other staff in Mayor's office
today. They have requested that the pentacle wreath, or a
replacement which they are willing to provide, be returned to its
place next to the nativity scene. In addition, Fox and Paxton plan
to contribute a Circle SanctuaryYuletide pentacle wreath next year
and in future years if the Green Bay City Council decides to have
this public holidays display at City Hall in the future. The City
Council meetings tomorrow night, Tuesday, December 18, to discuss the
future of the display.

Healing to Pakistan and the World

Benazir Bhutto, former prime minister of Pakistan, was assasinated
yesterday. She was killed by gunfire and a suicide bomb after
speaking ata Pakistan People's Party rally near Islamabad, the capital
of Pakistan.
Her funeral was held today and her body was buried next to that of her
father in Naudero, their ancestral village.

Bhutto was the first Muslim woman to head a nation -- she was elected
and served as Pakistan's Prime Minister twice. Trained at Harvard
and Oxford, she had strong ties to champions of democracy in America
and the UK as well as in other nations in addition to her native
Pakistan. She was loved by many around the world. However, she also
had enemies and faced many challenges in her life, including the
execution of her father and problems with some who were part of her
and other administrations, especially those who sought to oust her
from power.

Benazir was a strong, courageous, and determined advocate for freedom,
democracy, and human rights. She voiced her concerns for women's
health and social issues and sought to repeal ordinances that
curtailed women's rights. She is survived by her husband and three

The nation of Pakistan is mourning her death as are many in the world
today, ourselves included.

Kindle a candle in her memory, for the spirit of freedom, and for
healing and peace in Pakistan and the world:

* Please remember Benazir Bhutto, her courage, her contributions, and
her work for freedom, democracy, women's rights, support for the
poor, and human rights.

* Please send healing to her family and to all who loved her.

* Please send peace, healing, and stability to Pakistan which is in
political and social turmoil.

* Please send healing and peace to the world as a whole.

Thank you.

Modern Day Witchunt in Custody Case...please help!

On 9/27/07, jcompwiz < vashti@brumepath. com> wrote:

Hello PUC-CO friends,

I'm so scared, and I don't know where to turn. I'm involved in a
custody battle with my ex-husband. I have had full custody of my
children since our divorce five years ago. He is suing me now,
because he states that my religious beliefs are harmful to my
children. I am a solitary Wiccan, and practice a bit of Buddhism as
well. Today in court, I was asked the following questions, and much

Are you a witch? Can you define witch? Do you cast spells? Do you
cast spells on other people? Did you cast a spell to win this court
hearing? Do you practice in the nude? Do you children see you nude?
Do you attend festivals where people are nude? Do your children
encounter discrimination at school because of they're religious
practices or paraphernalia? Do you worship Satan? Is your religion

It was so frightening. The judge made it very clear that he thinks my
religion is wrong, and I'm afraid that they may think that I have
some kind of weird sexual practice…even though I don't practice
skyclad, and have never taken my children to a festival where people
were skyclad.

I made a belly casting of my pregnant belly that was thought to be a
strange sexual practice. I also had a friend body paint me as gaia
and photograph me for an artist that was going to paint me. I also
walked around my country property nude while I was in labor in the
middle of the night with my husband (my children were visiting my
parents at the time). All of these incidences were discussed at
length in court, and they said that it was dangerous for my children.

Please tell me if you can assist me in my case, or if you can refer
me to someone who may be able to help. I'm so very frightened. I
don't want to loose my children! I live in a rural area where nearly
everyone here is Christian. My ex-husband is a police officer, and he
knows the judge very well from work. I think that they are friends
and the judge hearing my case will not be fair.

Thank you kindly for reading my email. If you have any kind of
advice, I will follow it to the letter.

I live in Wiley, Colorado, but the case is being heard in court in
Lamar, Colorado about 15 miles from my home. Our next court date is
scheduled for October 12, 2007 at 2pm. It may be pushed ahead,
however because they expect there to be a problem with the court
reporters. I don't have much time to get help! I would have sought
help much sooner, but had no idea that my religion would be the focus
of the case. I was told by three different attorneys that it would be
easy, and that my husband could not use my religion against me. It
seems that is not the case here.

Witch Trials Still Continue in South Carolina

This is a more detailed account.
The more attention I can get on this the better! Please pass around
to anyone you think might listen.
Thanks. We are unable to go home at the moment because it isn't safe
for us there. They are always watching what we are doing and we are
afraid of more Police retribution so are staying at my Mother in-
law's house, but this isn't I am trying to get on the
computer whenever possible so bear with me....My life is turned
inside out right now.

Witch Trials Continue In South Carolina!

My name is Rhonda Gruber AKA Wicked Lil Witch and I am a Proud Witch.
I am currently being persecuted as a Witch by a Lt. Kevin Duke of the
Horry County Police Dept. My life and the lives of my family and
friends are being threatened and destroyed by this man with the
backing of countless other officials. I was arrested Monday Sept
10th '07 by Lt Duke for Breach of Peace, Child Endangerment/ Neglect
and 1st degree Harrassement.
This all began around the end of May '07 from many false police
reports from a neighboring family, The Luisettis, who also seemed to
think I deserved to be arrested for my religious beliefs. They stated
such in their police reports. When this began to become a pattern of
filing false reports, we began seeking Police protection FROM them.
We were told numerous times that we had no reason to receive their
protection, just to ignore them. Yet they continued to file their
reports on us. We were told the only we could do is file a Civil
Suit. This wouldn't fix the problem for quite awhile if ever.The
Police Dept on numerous occasions, even refused to file any reports
for us. We had at one point searched out help from Magistrates in the
area. One told us that filing these reports was most definitely
something the Police could do something about and that they should
but he was fairly certain that they wouldn't. He went on a 10 min
rant about it to us. He even took the time to gives us copies of the
laws on filing false reports, which we took to this Lt Duke, who
after realizing we weren't going to leave his office too easily, Then
wrote us report stating that the report from the Luisettis was
investigated and the allegations were unfounded and seemed to be
stemming from harrassement from the neighbors.
Now Monday, my 16 yr old son was targeted for their harrassment . In
the morning the Luisetti's daughter had a young man assualt him at
the bus stop. We filed a report that morning. That afternoon another
allegation from their daughter that he beat her up Friday on school
property which led to his suspension since the school wouldn't
investigate it other than her statement and her 2 friend's
statements. She would have been getting on the bus at the time while
he was on the other side of the building getting a ride from one of
his friends. Then as we were sitting in my garage workshop working on
getting the suspension investigated by the school board, waiting to
see if the death threat my son received was going to take place. The
threat came from the Luisetti's daughter getting a young man
to "kill" my son due to the beating she received from him. He was
supposed to be coming to our house after school. We were then
visited by an irrational Lt. Duke as he whipped into our driveway
screaming that Spencer was reported to be brandishing and pointing an
assault rifle at the Luisettis. Which isn't even close to what he was
doing. Duke then stated that is is tired of all this and someone is
going to jail. He didn't care to hear anything we had to to say about
our side. Anytime I was trying to say something I was told to shut up
or be arrested. He was VERY aggressive and yelling. He seemed to
trying to provoke an altercation. I freely admit I was upset and a
little loud but I was trying to defend my son. I was never violent or
out of control. I was just pissed and trying to make some sense out
of the situation. When I was told to shut up I did which seemed to
further anger Duke. I was only arrested after they put the cuffs on
my son. I then told my Husband to find a attorney and quick.
This was when they arrested me.
I was never read my Miranda Rights to this day but the questions they
asked me were used in my arrest. Doesn't seem legal to me...
My charges of Child Endangerment were due to the fact that we have
several legal weapons around a minor. I must inform you my son is an
ROTC member with Marine Boot Camp training in weapons, can
disassemble/ reassemble an M16 on the field. He was also on the Rifle
Team last year and is Athletics Team Commander. He also knew our
weapons, from target shooting and cleaning. He even pointed out to
the Police Weapons Expert how to release the clip and open the bolt
chamber as they couldn't. He is very safe and well versed in weapons.
I must point point that is legally old enough to have a hunting
license. He is also looking to join the National Guard on his 17th B-
Day, Oct 3rd this yr. Upon his 18th B-Day he was planning a Military
career. We are proud of him and is a really good person. We are very
upset with all the things being alleged about him.

To summarize:
We are being persecuted because of my spiritual choices, not being
Christian. Lt. Duke has a web page stating his religious beliefs and
infertility and adoption problems which leads us to the belief that
he can no longer separate his personal feelings from his ability to
do his job in an objective manner. He seems to have appointed himself
as a personal victim's advocate for allegedly neglected and abused
children. The fact that I am a practicing witch is being noted in
complaints and warrants against me and my family. It has even been
voiced in court along with allegations stating I have cast spells on
2 cops and the luisetti family by the solicitor during proceedings.
My familiar pyewacket seems to have been mishandled during the search
of our home. She was running and flinching from us the day after. I
am very hurt by this. Though this can't be proven, I know my animal
and this is not her normal behavior.
We have always tried to help others and be good people, so this is
very hard for us to deal with. I am lucky to have a very strong
supportive circle of friends and family or we would still be in jail.
My in-laws had to take the majority of their retirement fund for some
20 thousand dollars to hire a powerful law firm to help us. Though I
will never be ashamed of being a witch, I am so very sorry for all
the trouble and loss of money it has cost them to stand up for us.
The reason for this letter is that we need all the help we can find
to fight this. Whether it is positive protective energy, advice, or
donations to help pay for this. I will not rest until I have made a
difference for all that believe in freedom of religion. I don't want
this to just disappear, I want to make a stand for all free thinkers
against persecution. We all know the squeaky wheel gets the oil.
For all that believe in freedom of choice, please stand behind me or
even beside me in court while I fight. I am not a quitter and I have
a loud voice. I always stand up for what I believe in, all I ask is
to not have to stand alone in this. It's time to fight for what we
all believe in, not just lie down and take it. I have enclosed the
papers that are in my possession to prove my claims. I will include
more as they come into my possession. I am not easily scared although
they are trying to intimidate us. Threatening phone calls have been
made to family and friends even now. In supporting us, you are also
supporting yourselves.
We are looking to get this story out to as many places as possible.
The more people who are aware the harder it will be for them to get
aware with it!

We NEED your help!!!
Blessed be.

New and Interesting Issues

Hi gang,

I know that I've been quiet for quite some time - life tends to get
in the way of my preferred activities :) There are several issues
coming up that I have recently been made aware of and would like a
little advice. The Arkansas Legislature has, unfortunately, voted -
several years ago - to not separate church and state. Now, a local
group - Arkansas Family Counsel - is trying to get a measure passed
to not allow same sex couples to act as foster parents or to even
adopt. I find this very offensive and a potential problem for the
pagan community. I have posted this information to the AR_PUC group
and am hoping to have some type of feedback and action.

The next issue is one that concerns all progressive groups across the
board. It seems that many Christian groups have been doing their
best to take up all of the available radio frequencies thereby
blocking new and upcoming radio stations that are non-profit and very
progressive. The Christian radio groups are also in violation of FCC
regulations by not staying within or on their assigned frequencies.
Folks are hesitant to turn them in because they are 'a christian
group' and all of that nonsense. This is a perfect opportunity for
the pagan community to work with many of the progressive peace and
justice groups out there. I have found that several of these groups
are very welcoming and sincerely want to work with pagan groups for
peace and justice ends. This could be a very powerful and validating
opportunity for the pagan community to move into the mainstream of
activism. What do you all think? I am hoping for further discussion
and ideas on this.

Thanks for your time and advice.

Bright blessings, Jasmin.

High Priestess, Circle Sanctuary

Dear friends,

I apologize in advance for any multiple posts you may receive on this
subject. I'm forwarding you a very distressing news report and urge
you to take prompt action by writing to the addresses listed below. Of the two
women mentioned in this article, I personally know and have worked with
Gloria Ushigua, the Zápara leader; I've found her to be a strong,
wise, sincere, deeply-committed, and thoroughly delightful person. Gloria is
the daughter of César Ushigua, the last Zápara shimano (shaman) from
Ecuador, who died a few years ago. She was taught by her father, and is now
completing her training with the last remaining Zápara shaman from

Gloria Ushigua has dedicated her life to work on behalf of her people,
a tiny tribe comprising just a few hundred members who live in isolated
villages in the jungles of Ecuador. The Zápara were long thought to be
extinct, until a few of them were sent to make contact with the outside
world in the hope of securing help so that their families could
survive. As a result, the government of Ecuador granted them ownership of their
tribal lands, though to the Zápara, the idea that humans could "own" the
Earth makes no sense. Despite that attitude, they now find themselves in the
difficult position of struggling to retain that ownership as the only
way to protect those lands from the multinational petrochemical corporations
that want to raze the forest in order to dig wells, and the pharmaceutical
conglomerates seeking to gain control of the many rare medicinal plants
that abound in the Ecuadorian wilderness.

One of Gloria's sons was murdered several years ago in retaliation
for her activist efforts; now she and her collaborator, Rosa Gualinga, have
been directly attacked and almost killed, and remain in dire need of medical
help which, being "poor Indian women," is being denied them.

Please contact the authorities listed below --- it doesn't matter if
you can't do it in Spanish --- to express your support for Gloria and
Rosa, and make sure to tell them what country you live in, so they will
understand that, truly, the whole world is watching. Feel free to forward this to
any others who may also be willing to help.

In the Spirit of the Earth,
Andras Corban Arthen
Director, The EarthSpirit Community

Ecuadorian indigenous women leaders attacked, left for dead.

At the end of August, two indigenous leaders in Puyo, Ecuador were
attacked after months of receiving death threats for their efforts to protect
the territory of the Zápara people in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Gloria Ushigua and Rosa Gualinga were beaten until unconscious, thrown
in the trunk of a car, and later left for dead.

Both women are internationally known human rights defenders. Gloria
Ushigua is a leader of the Zápara people. Rosa Gualinga is of the Andoas
people and works closely with the Zápara. The Zápara are an indigenous people in
danger of becoming extinct, with a current population in Perú and Ecuador of
approximately 650. Gloria is an elected representative of Nacionalidad
Zápara de la Amazonia Ecuatoriana (NAZAE), the official representative
organization of the Zápara people in Ecuador, which works to promote
and protect the lives and lands of the Zápara people.

Zápara territory is rich with natural resources, like oil, timber and
botanical medicines, and there are varied interests who are trying to
exploit them --- oil companies, the military, illegal loggers,
settlers, scientists, and pharmaceutical companies, as well as fraudulent
"indigenous rights" groups who want to act as middlemen in the exploitation of
those resources, and who appear to be willing to do pretty much anything to
get a piece of the pie. For quite some time, one of those bogus groups of
people who are not Zápara have made several attempts to illegally seize from
NAZAE the official right to represent the Zápara people and take control of
Zápara land. Several individuals in this group have been threatening Gloria
and Rosa for more than a year. In recent months, after NAZAE won a legal
victory over the group, these threats have intensified.

On Sunday, August 26th, a woman approached Gloria in the street in
downtown Puyo. She said that her mother was Zápara and that she had an
organization that worked with indigenous communities. She invited Gloria and Rosa to
her house to discuss her work and the possibilities of collaboration.

At about 9 pm, they were sitting in the patio area outside of the
woman's house when a man entered, kicked Rosa, and sprayed Gloria and Rosa in
the face with a large quantity of what appears to have been tear gas. Three
other men followed, and the four of them viciously beat Gloria and Rosa
with fists, feet and clubs. Gloria was hit on the head with a rock.
Witnesses say that the four men threw the two unconscious women into the trunk of a
car and sped off.

Gloria and Rosa were found in the middle of the night, still
unconscious, in the middle of a road. Gloria's son got them home, where they regained
consciousness at around 4am on Monday. Although they have been to the
military hospital in Puyo several times, they have still not been given
a proper medical examination. Gloria's arm is broken and she has a high
fever. They are both in need of medical treatment and a complete examination
so that they can know the full extent of their injuries.

Gloria and Rosa were able to identify the first man who attacked them,
and a witness recognized a local police officer as another of their
attackers. Although Gloria and Rosa went to the police station in Puyo to file
criminal complaints against these men, they have been largely ignored and, to
date, no arrests have been made. Until justice is served, it is reasonable to
assume that the two women's lives remain in danger.

RECOMMENDED ACTION (please send appeals as quickly as possible):

- express concern for the safety of Gloria Ushigua and Rosa Gualinga,
and urge authorities to take immediate and effective action to protect them
and ensure that they receive the medical attention that they require.

- call on authorities to order a thorough investigation into this
attack, with results made public and those responsible brought to justice.

Wiccan Dedicate Grave at Arlington

Posted by: BettyJane on Monday, July 09, 2007 - 01:29 PM

Wiccans dedicate grave at Arlington
WASHINGTON — The Rev. Selena Fox said Wednesday wasn't the first
time she visited a Wiccan's grave site at Arlington National
Cemetery in Virginia. It was just the first time one was identified
that way.

"This is the first time the Christian cross and Wiccan pentacle have
both been engraved on a tombstone here, and it's great news for us,"
said the senior minister of Circle Sanctuary, a Wisconsin Wiccan
community. "It's recognition we've fought for for so long."

On Wednesday Fox, members of her congregation and other pagans held
a consecration ceremony at the grave site of Jan Deanna, a Wiccan
minister who passed away more than two years ago.

Her husband, Army Capt. William O'Rourke, passed away nine years
earlier and had the Christian cross engraved on his tombstone. But
Deanna's side was left blank, because until May the Department of
Veterans Affairs had no symbol to recognize her faith.

Wiccan groups have been pushing for the pentacle as a recognized
religious symbol for almost a decade, but efforts have been stymied
by paperwork and administrative delays by the Department of Veterans

This spring, after new rules from the department and continued
unsuccessful lobbying by pagan groups, Circle Sanctuary and
Americans United for the Separation of Church and State sued the
department for the right to put the symbol on gravestones and

In May the department settled the suit, agreeing to include it among
the 38 other religious symbols permitted for veterans' memorials.
Veterans and military spouses at Wednesday's event called it an
important First Amendment victory.

Retired Army Capt. Richard Briggs, who is working toward becoming a
Wiccan military chaplain, said over the years pagan servicemembers
have faced discrimination from commanders and other troops, but as
people learn more about the religion the military has become more

"Coming out of the broom closet can be dangerous, but we have to,"
he said.

Army Staff Sgt. Frederick Twombly, a member of the 63rd Engineer
Support Battalion, helped set up a Wiccan worship community in
Baghdad during both of his deployments over to Iraq.

"We had guys from all over, all different units, all different
ranks," he said. "People would look and say, `Wait, he's a major and
he's a Wiccan?' And then they'd understand that it's not just some
hidden thing."

The event was designed not just to celebrate the legal victory but
also to remember Deanna, who friends called a kind and generous
woman. The Rev. Paula Johnson, who belonged to the same worship
community in Florida, said she worked with local charities every
Christmas to help poor families with gifts for their children.

"A year before she died, she spoke often about not tolerating
religious persecution, " Johnson said. "She's an inspiration to us

Deanna's tombstone is one of two in the cemetery bearing the symbol;
Pfc. Abe Kooiman, a World War II veteran who died in 2002, also left
instructions to have his headstone marked once a Wiccan symbol was
approved. Fox said at least four other veterans have also had the
symbol etched into memorial plaques since the lawsuit was settled.

"And now, I'm hearing from people that are requesting and getting it
without me being included in a fight," she said. "That makes us
very, very happy."

Wiccan Teacher Wins Lottery

NOTTINGHAM, Md. - Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett says a New Age book store made it possible for him to become an overnight multimillionaire.

He and his wife, Denise, were on their way to the shop where he occasionally teaches Wicca and Reiki (RAY'kee) healing when they stopped at a liquor store and bought two $5 Mega Millions tickets for Friday night's estimated $330 million jackpot. On Sunday, he said one ticket was a winner.

"If it wasn't for this place I wouldn't have won the lottery," Bartlett said Sunday at Mystickal Voyage, the New Age shop.

Four winning tickets to the Mega Millions jackpot were sold in Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia. Lottery officials said Sunday they cannot confirm the validity of Bartlett's ticket before they meet with him on Tuesday.

"There's no reason to believe it's not legitimate, but it has to go through security," said Maryland State Lottery Director Buddy Roogow, who said he has spoken with Bartlett.

Bartlett, an accountant from Dundalk, said he made a bargain with the multiple gods associated with his Wiccan beliefs: "You let me win the lottery and I'll teach." Both tickets he purchased had numbers chosen randomly from the computer.

Bartlett had not decided if he will accept his winnings as an annuity or choose the lump sum cash option. The jackpot could get larger once ticket sales are tallied, Roogow said, but the lump sum payment would be at least $48.7 million, or about $32 million after taxes.

According to preliminary calculations, each ticket would be worth about $82 million if the prize were taken in 26 annual payments.

Bartlett said the money won't change him, although he plans to invest in Mystickal Voyage. "I'm going to live my life like I have been," he said.

The odds that any ticket would match all five numbers — 8, 18, 22, 40 and 44 — and the Mega Ball number — 11 — were one in 176 million.

If estimates of the jackpot hold true, it would be the fourth largest in the lottery's history. It was known as The Big Game when it awarded jackpots of $363 million in 2000 and $331 million in 2002.

Mega Millions tickets are also sold in California, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Washington.

Update on Charlene

Update on a healing/spiritual support request for Charlene Vierke &
Jessa Wright that was sent out on Saturday, August 18:

Yesterday, in the early morning hours of Sunday August 26th, Charlene
Vierke crossed over to the Summerland with the presence of her best
friend and room mate of twelve years, Jessa Wright. Both women are
known to many in the PSG community as the Redneck Pagans.

Char had been unresponsive for the last day prior to her crossing.
While Char was in Hospice, Jessa played all of Chars favorite Pagan
musicians and created a spirit of calm and trust as well as a sacred
environment. With the placement of a speaker phone in the room she
was able to hear every phone conversation, prayer and blessing that
came to her. On Saturday night she was surrounded by a circle of
friends holding hands as all she received a prayer of release.

Earlier that day, they were able to make numerous phone calls and have
the opportunity to share final words with several friends. This
closure and the many prayers, blessings and permission allowed
Charlene to accept her time was drawing near and prepare for her journey.

Jessa asked me to let all of you that sent prayers and healing to them
via their good friend Linda Eldridge that she received and read all
50 emails to Char and they discussed every one. They were both deeply
touched by the outpouring of support from the PSG community!

Char will be cremated and there are plans for a memorial for her at
PSG 2008.

If anyone would like to send thoughts of support and love to Jessa who
now is in the process of moving out of the house she previously
shared with Char please send them care of the Circle Sanctuary
minister who has been providing support, Rev Nora Cedarwind Young:

might be strong enough to proceed with chemo, but that window may be
closing also.

care of her in Arizona.

that, even if the House passes this bill, he needs to veto it. It is
already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government

gives benefits to "illegal" aliens who have never contributed, where
does that leave those of us who have paid into Social Security all our

"illegal" aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an

Healing to Emmrie, Amy and Sharon

Please send healing to Amy Johnson and her newborn daughter, Emmrie.

Emmrie was born last night (May 30) by emergency c-section and since
then has been in the ICU of the University of Iowa Hospital.

Emmrie had to have blood transfusions last night, and doctors are
still assessing her serious condition, its causes, and treatment options.

Please also send support to Amy & Emmrie's family -- especially to
MoonFeather/Sharon of Circle Sanctuary. She is Amy's mother and
Emmrie's grandmother.

The family is off-line right now and therefore not able to receive
emails of support. Do send your well wishes and prayers of support,
however --

Thank you!

MO Man Burns Books as Act of Protest

By DAVID TWIDDY, Associated Press Writer Mon May 28, 7:19 AM ET

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Tom Wayne has amassed thousands of books in a warehouse during the 10 years he has run his used book store, Prospero's Books.

His collection ranges from best sellers, such as Tom Clancy's "The Hunt for Red October" and Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire of the Vanities," to obscure titles, like a bound report from the Fourth Pan-American Conference held in Buenos Aires in 1910. But when he wanted to thin out the collection, he found he couldn't even give away books to libraries or thrift shops; they said they were full.

So on Sunday, Wayne began burning his books in protest of what he sees as society's diminishing support for the printed word.

"This is the funeral pyre for thought in America today," Wayne told spectators outside his bookstore as he lit the first batch of books.

The fire blazed for about 50 minutes before the Kansas City Fire Department put it out because Wayne didn't have a permit for burning.

Wayne said next time he will get a permit. He said he envisions monthly bonfires until his supply — estimated at 20,000 books — is exhausted.

"After slogging through the tens of thousands of books we've slogged through, and to accumulate that many and to have people turn you away when you take them somewhere, it's just kind of a knee-jerk reaction," he said. "And it's a good excuse for fun."

Wayne said he has seen fewer customers in recent years as people more often get their information from television or the Internet. He pointed to a 2002 study by the National Endowment for the Arts, that found that less than half of adult respondents reported reading for pleasure, down from almost 57 percent in 1982.

Kansas City has seen the number of used bookstores decline in recent years, and there are few independent bookstores left in town, said Will Leathem, a co-owner of Prospero's Books.

"There are segments of this city where you go to an estate sale and find five TVs and three books," Leathem said.

The idea of burning the books horrified Marcia Trayford, who paid $20 Sunday to carry away an armload of tomes on art, education and music.

"I've been trying to adopt as many books as I could," she said.

Dozens of other people took advantage of the book-burning, searching through the books waiting to go into the flames for last-minute bargains.

Mike Bechtel paid $10 for a stack of books, including an antique collection of children's literature, which he said he'd save for his 4-year-old son.

"I think, given the fact it is a protest of people not reading books, it's the best way to do it," Bechtel said. "(Wayne has) made the point that not reading a book is as good as burning it."
