William is originally from Ohio. After college at The Ohio State University Will has lived in San Francisco, Ca and Oakland, CA. After a brief pit stop back in Ohio William lived for a time in Clearwater, Florida and Denver Colorado. His interest in horror started at age 13 when seeing Don Coscarelli's Phantasm in his hometown theater for the first time. Later that year he had the bejesus scared out of himself reading The Amityville Horror. Although Roger Zelazney's Chronicles of Amber were the works that made him want to be a writer he has learned character development by reading Stephen King, learned to color outside the lines from reading Clive Barker and Glen Cook.

Pistol Packin Mama's of Bethlehem Steel
During WW2 women worked in Bethlehem Steel. Their salary was quite low. The only way a women could make a decent living was to become a Security Guard. Security Guards were needed to prevent sabatoge to the plant. (Bethlehem Steel was very involved in building military ships, etc. for the war effort.)
Women who learned how to shoot a .38 revolver, became part of the Security Staff and carried .38's on the job. They also more than doubled their salary. Ethel Bogunovich of Hellertown had to learn to shoot, but caught on quickly. During a training session for prospective patrol women in 1943, Ethel hit the bull's-eye the first time she pulled the trigger of a .38-caliber revolver. The sure shot earned her a citation from the patrol chief and a spot on the force.
On the radio, country singer Al Dexter — and later Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters — had a song called ''Pistol Packin' Mama'' that shot to No. 1 like a bullet.Lay that pistol down, babe,Lay that pistol down.Pistol packin' mama,Lay that pistol down.
We will be featuring Ellen K Roach, blogger at Albany School Board Observer about budget issues and transparency. Our neighbors in Bethlehem Schools engage in participatory and televised budgeting. We think it's a great idea.
We will also be talking about budgeting issues with regards to Albany, and local control issues as well.

Now it came about in the days when the judges governed, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab with his wife and his two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi; and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. Now they entered the land of Moab and remained there. Then Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died; and she was left with her two sons.
They took for themselves Moabite women as wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. Then both Mahlon and Chilion also died, and the woman was bereft of her two children and her husband. Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the land of Moab, for she had heard in the land of Moab that the Lord had visited His people in giving them food. So she departed from the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go, return each of you to her mother’s house. May the Lord deal kindly with you as you have dealt with the dead and with me.
Ruth was a young Moabite widow, who, because of her selfless devotion to her mother-in-law Naomi, and to Naomi’s God, gained a husband and a child, a place in Jewish history and became the great-grandmother of David and an ancestor of Jesus Christ. Ruth faces the problems of widowhood.
Ruth commits herself to Naomi. Boaz allows Ruth to glean in his fields.
Ruth asks Boaz to be her kinsman-redeemer. The kinsman-redeemer was the closest male relative who had responsibility to marry a widow within the family and thereby protect the interests of needy members of the extended family. Boaz negotiates with a nearer relative of Ruth’s. Boaz marries Ruth...
