High school girls from Albia, Centerville, Davis County, Eddyville-Blakesburg and Cardinal school districts will swim for Ottumwa High School during the 2018-2019 school year, the Ottumwa school board decided Monday night.  Two weeks ago Athletic Director Scott Maas brought the issue of sharing agreements before the board after rumors that OHS would no longer have a cooperative activity sharing agreement with other districts for the swim team raised the ire of some parents. At issue was a concern that students from other districts would prevent swimmers from Ottumwa from being on the team.  Despite some concerns the sharing agreement was approved unanimously; Ottumwa currently has eight students from other districts competing on its swim teams.

Do you have unused prescription medication sitting around the house that you’d like to dispose of safely?  If so mark you calendars – this Saturday multiple local law enforcement agencies will participate in a national program aimed to curb pill abuse and theft.  The Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Pella Police Department, Monroe Police Department, and Melcher-Dallas Police Department are all collecting expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Pella Police Lt. Paul Haase says the program is intended to keep prescriptions from falling into the wrong hands.

What to do with a Troubled Heart
Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17

There is no greater answer for our troubles than to have a conversation with our Lord. Not a one-sided conversation but truly enter a time of listening. Often, we want to share our anguish but how regularly do we want to hear feedback. This prayer takes more than sharing our troubles for it takes waiting in His presence and receiving instruction.

We all have a trusted friend we share the troubles of our heart with but what if we looked towards God as a trusted friend and confidant. He is ready to hear from us and will help us as our friend with the problems we carry.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

He calls us his friends and His desire is to sit with us in our troubles and anguish. His friendship is motivated by love for us for His very essence is love for us. When He approaches our problems, he hears them through love, so I’m not sure why we wait to carry all our difficulties to our friend.
