We really enjoyed the Jackson-Via Computer Club this year!  All of the members have been working very hard to learn the basics of posting to  blogs. The tasks included writing a post and scanning an image into Adobe Fireworks.  We just wish that we had more time to get it all perfect!

Club members are bringing in some books from home to donate to needy children in our area, and we will keep thinking of ways that we can help those in need.

ABC News has done a series of reports on the problems in Appalachia, and here is what they say:

Central Appalachia has up to three times the national poverty rate, an epidemic of prescription drug abuse, the shortest life span in the nation, toothlessness, cancer and chronic depression. But everywhere in these hills, there are also young fighters filled with courage and hope.

Here are some videos to watch:

Our thanks to Charlottesville Mayor Dave Norris for showing us his own blog, Ms. Nancy Lambert for her presentation on helping the poor in Kentucky, and Ms. Becca Gibson for helping with the technology tools.

We hope that  all of you who read this will be inspired to reach out and help some of the less fortunate around us!

It is important to help.


It is important to help.  Some people are way too needy. People sometimes don’t have clothes.  They are both hungry and thirsty.  That person needs help!

There are many ways that we can help poor people.


There are many ways that we can help poor people.  The people are needy.  People who help are not greedy.  The people are hungry.  People who are poor have no clothes.  People who are greedy do not give to the poor.

Have a little extra? Consider giving to people who are less fortunate.


Have a little extra? Consider giving to people who are less fortunate. A lot of people are poor and need help.  Some people are homeless, but others don’t care. Everybody can give something to help a person in need.  Lots of people are selfish; they won’t give anything to the poor.  People in Franklin County, Virginia, go every Christmas to help people in Owsley County, Kentucky.

We should help the needy.


We should help the needy.  A lot of unwealthy people pray. I think that it is really sad that people are needy or poor.  I feel really bad for people who are homeless.  I really have never seen a poor person get mad.  A lot of needy people go to church to get blessings from God and Jesus, so just because you’re not needy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to church.
