NATIONAL DO NOT CALL REGISTRY
Has your evening been disrupted by a call from a telemarketer? If so, you’re not alone. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been receiving an increasing number of complaints from consumers throughout the nation about unwanted and uninvited calls to their homes from telemarketers. The FCC together with the Federal Trade Commission has established a national Do-Not-Call Registry. The registry is nationwide and applies to all telemarketers. Commercial telemarketers are not allowed to call you if your number is on the registry, subject to certain exceptions. As a result consumers can choose to register their home and/or cell phone numbers to reduce the number of phone calls to their homes. You can register your phone numbers for free and they will remain on the list until you remove them or discontinue service—there is no need to re-register numbers. The Do-NotCall registry does not prevent ALL unwanted calls. It does not cover the following: Calls from organizations with which you have established a business relationship. Calls for which you have given prior written permission. Calls which are not commercial or do not include unsolicited advertisements. Calls by or on behalf of tax-exempt non-profit organizations. HOW TO REGISTER You can register your residential telephone number, including wireless numbers and cell phone numbers, by telephone or online for free. Register online for the National Do-Not-Call registry by going to www.donotcall.gov. To register by telephone, call 1-888-382-1222; for TTY call 1-866-290-4236. You must call from the phone number you wish to register and allow about 31 days for the calls to stop.

CINQUAIN FOR JUNE By Dotty Dittmar
At times like these We can imagine How God felt if he Really built The universe that day We can wonder how many times He put a star or planet up And only had to take it Down We can almost share The pain he felt When he saw The hole it left For a time in the sky I’m sure he felt Just like you do today Looking at the star In your hands The hole in the sky And for a moment feeling Awesome The weight of creation.

I think everyone can remember when the public libraries were as silent as a tomb. This was considered the standard of courtesy when using the library. I remember going into the Bisbee Library as a boy. Since noisy kids weren’t really encouraged to use the “adult” library, the lady librarian always put her finger to her lips making sure we didn’t disturb anyone with a “SHH”. If our shoes made any noise, we had to take them off. All conversations had to be in whispers—even when we wanted to ask the librarian for help. Times have changed. Libraries need not be under a code of silence because they are places of book discussions, poetry readings, book signings, etc. However, courtesy to others is still practiced, even in a library like ours. We don’t have a Librarian to check out books and put a time limit on them, and no one will require only whispering. Our library is a place for our residents to meet, for jigsaw puzzlers and others who may want to discuss books, poetry readings, writing and more! Old-time courtesy can be practiced by everyone in some ways. Since we have limited space, please take out a few books at a time and return them when you are finished with them. This will make it possible for others to enjoy them. Look around in your apartment and return the books you may have forgotten were there. Our Volunteers make an attempt to shelve the books by category, so others may find them readily. Please help us by returning books to the basket provided and let our Volunteers put the books away. Consideration for others in the library is good, even though it no longer requires being as quiet as a mouse and wearing crepe-soled shoes. We want everyone to enjoy the library.
