Here are two more┬átimeless items from Paul Harvey’s For What It’s Worth:

Our For What It’s Worth Department appreciates the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

That’s where good firemen go to become better firemen.

Thousands each year–career and volunteer firefighters–go to the National Fire Academy to learn the latest in fire prevention and fire fighting and fire department management.

On that campus the current class in fire prevention was challenged to compete.

Students at the National Fire Academy were sent forth to see which student could find the most fire code violations in any one building.

The winner of the competition found and confirmed the most–180 separate fire code violations in one building–WITHOUT LEAVING THE CAMPUS!

Our For What It’s Worth Department has learned that in San Antonio, Texas, a priest has gone to court–to try to stop a member of his congregation from singing.

Father Alexander Wangler of Our Lady of Sorrows Church has tried every other way to get the woman to stop singing along with the church choir . . .

Now he is seeking a court order.

The problem is that she, in her pew, sings when the choir sings–but she sings only HER OWN COMPOSITIONS!
