With no draft and a Selective Service registration system linked automatically to getting most state drivers' licenses, the idea of military service generally and conscientious objection in particular is simply "out of sight and out of mind." Yet, Selective Service registration for men turning 18 (and possibly women in the future) is still required, and it is the precursor to a draft. Little thought is given either to the consequences of registration or to the formulation of a peace testimony as these teenagers move into adulthood. Are we running the risk of raising a generation ill-prepared to articulate and document a claim against war and violence in the event a draft is reinstated?This curriculum explains Selective Service, its registration and methods; defines conscientious objection as currently prescribed by law and judicial rulings; provides a range of exercises and activities to prompt individual soul-searching and group discussion; and lists procedures on how to document a CO claim with an emphasis on writing a "CO Letter." The curriculum is comprehensive and extensive. It blends instructive and experiential formats with lesson plans, handouts, reference materials, activities, worksheets, and more. While individuals can use this, the curriculum is designed primarily for teaching in groups, either as teens, adults, or a blend of both. And lastly, though unintended the curriculum can have a lasting impact and be part of a lifelong training in peace. Many of our CO letters writers over the last 15 years recognized the influence this experience had on their lives and in the formulation of a commitment to non-violence and peace.This Teacher's Resource Guide accompanies a downloadable Power Point slide presentation and two videos. This is peace training that changes lives.

With his inimitable sense of humor and storytelling talent, New York Times bestselling author Michael Korda brings us this charming, hilarious, self-deprecating memoir of a city couple's new life in the country. At once entertaining, canny, and moving, Country Matters does for Dutchess County, New York, what Under the Tuscan Sun did for Tuscany. This witty memoir, replete with Korda's own line drawings, reads like a novel, as it chronicles the author's transformation from city slicker to full-time country gentleman, complete with tractors, horses, and a leaking roof. When he decides to take up residence in an eighteenth-century farmhouse in Dutchess County, ninety miles north of New York City, Korda discovers what country life is really like: Owning pigs, more than owning horses, even more than owning the actual house, firmly anchored the Kordas as residents in the eyes of their Pleasant Valley neighbors. You may own your land, but without concertina barbed wire, or the 82nd Airborne on patrol, it's impossible to keep people off it! It's possible to line up major household repairs over a tuna melt sandwich. And everyone in the area is fully aware that Michael "don't know shit about septics." The locals are not particularly quick to accept these outsiders, and the couple's earliest interactions with their new neighbors provide constant entertainment, particularly when the Kordas discover that hunting season is a year-round event -- right on their own land! From their closest neighbors, mostly dairy farmers, to their unforgettable caretaker Harold Roe -- whose motto regarding the local flora is "Whack it all back! " -- the residents of Pleasant Valley eventually come to realize that the Kordas are more than mere weekenders. Sure to have readers in stitches, this is a book that has universal appeal for all who have ever dreamed of owning that perfect little place to escape to up in the country, or, more boldly, have done it.

An amazing book, written by the Reverend E.J. Hardy. Oscar Wilde praised it extravagantly: "It is a complete handbook to an earthly Paradise, and its author may be regarded as the Murray of matrimony and the Baedeker of bliss." This book provides something really useful and thought-provoking, as well as entertaining, for anyone contemplating or living in the state of matrimony. "We strongly recommend this book as one of the best of wedding presents. It is a complete handbook to an earthly Paradise, and its author may be regarded as the Murray of Matrimony and the Baedeker of Bliss." – Pall Mall Gazette. "The author has successfully accomplished a difficult task in writing a clever and practical book on the important subject of matrimony.... This book, which is at once entertaining and full of wise precepts, deserves to be widely read." – Morning Post. "An entertaining volume.... The new guide to matrimonial felicity." – Standard, Leader. "A clever, readable, and entertaining book.... This delicious book." – Literary Churchman. "This most elucidatory treatise.... As a 'companion to the honeymoon,' this orange blossom, true-love-knot ornamented volume should no doubt be highly esteemed." – Whitehall Review.

To girls contemplating marriage, the volume should be presented as a wedding gift.... Grave and gay, but never for a moment dull or tiresome. Each page sparkles with anecdote or suggestive illustration." – Ladies' Treasury. "A highly ornamental yet handy, well printed, and admirably written volume." – The Lady. "A rich store of entertaining anecdote, and full of thoughts beautiful, pious, and wise. Has a tasteful binding." – Bookseller.

Excerpt from the Introduction: "THE customary antithesis between "American" literature and "English" literature is unfortunate and misleading in that it seems to exclude American authors from the noble roll of those who have contributed to the literature of our mother-tongue. Of course, when we consider it carefully we cannot fail to see that the literature of a language is one and indivisible and that the nativity or the domicile of those who make it matters nothing. Just as Alexandrian literature is Greek, so American literature is English; and as Theocritus demands inclusion in any account of Greek literature, so Thoreau cannot be omitted from any history of English literature as a whole."

When Willa Jo Temple Is Found Stabbed Through The Heart On The Floor Of Her Beauty Shop, The Good Folk Of Summerset, Nc Are Sent Into A Tizzy. It’s up to her ex-husband, Sheriff Tal Hicks, to investigate. Evidence points to four possible suspects: Willa Jo’s business partner; a town socialite; a preacher’s wife; and Willa Jo’s live-in lover. Willa Jo kept a notebook containing all the secrets she’s learned while doing hair. Rumor has it Willa Jo is going to write a book, exposing everything. But now, Willa Jo is dead and the incriminating notebook is missing, leaving the sheriff with very little to go on. As he interrogates the suspects, he finds himself attracted to newcomer, Clarissa Myers. He delves into her past only to discover she has deeper ties to Summerset than anyone imagined. Before the sheriff can complete his interrogations, however, another suspect, Avenelle Young, confesses. The sheriff is skeptical about Avenelle Young’s guilt because she refuses to discuss what happened with Willa Jo. Her statement is a terse declaration of guilt, with neither motive nor method explained. The sheriff has no choice but to incarcerate Mrs. Young. During the investigations, as the secrets of Summerset are slowly revealed, each family touched by Willa Jo’s death must come to terms with the new information being unearthed. The repercussions are far-reaching, and forgiveness hard to come by. However, at the heart of the book is the possibility of reconciliation among the town folk as they learn the real ‘truth’ about one another. “Anne Clinard Barnhill's first book came from her heart. Her second two historical novels were masterfully researched and her most recent book, The Beautician's Notebook, is just a lot of fun. The story centers around the tragic and suspicious death of the popular local beautician at The Sassy Lady, Willa Jo Temple. Willa Jo is so popular, as a matter of fact, that she has a string of husbands and boyfriends and, for the price of a haircut, she'll entertain clients with tidbits of her outlandish behavior. As Willa Jo shares her scandalous life, others reveal bits and pieces of their own past indiscretions. As Willa Jo says, ‘You'd be amazed at what people will tell you while they're getting a pedicure.’ What only a few people know is that Willa Jo is taking notes and some say she plans to write a tell-all book one day. Upon her death, the notebook goes missing and when it's found, suddenly there are quite a number of suspects. This is a great ‘who-done-it’ that will keep you reading until the very last page.”-Brenda Bevan Remmes, author of The Quaker Cafe and Home to Cedar Branch. “What a treat! Anne Clinard Barnhill has penned a mystery with heart and soul. Her characters are so likeable - even lovable - that I hated to think of any of them guilty of a heinous crime . . . despite their many motives. An intriguing and heartwarming novel.”-Diane Chamberlain, NYT bestselling author of The Silent Sister. “More red herrings than in a fishmonger’s wheelbarrow.”-Molly Weston, Mystery Writers of America Raven Award Winner.
