    The demand will alawys be in energy.The question is do you know oil is the old energy?Our new war is for energy independace, and new sources of energy.So you will make lots of money in those things. ( maybe since Jim is farming in Brazil, he is into energy producing crops, Brazil is energy indendant.Oh but he wont tell you that.Jim is the kind of people who dont give a shit about our country. so dont listen to him.We will make lots of money he can stay in Brazil or Asia.

    Joyce and family. Not sure if you remember me but our families used to hang out together back in the days in WCH. My family included my parents, Earl and Jinny Downs, twin brother Joe and older brothers Dave and Tom. I am so sorry for your loss. I too now live in Florida. Jim and you brought such joy to so many people. As owners of "The Den" you brought to WCH a place where teens could meet and have fun. Jim's gift of building Christmas displays was unmatched. Jim now joins my parents who've gone ahead of us. Praying for you and your family. Specifically praying that GOD gives you the comfort that only HE can provide at a time like this. Love always...Jeff Downs Melbourne Fl.

    I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of Mr Emrick. He will certainly be missed. Joyces was one of my favorite customers to take care at the bank. May the God of all comfort, be with your family, and knowing one day God will remove all sickness and death off the face of this earth and no resident will say I'm sick. Isaiah :24
