MilesTones: LEAKED! Advance Headlines Ignite Alarm!

These advance newspaper headlines and stories that were to be hidden from Americans until the precise moment of release, have just been leaked out to select news providers.  Richard Lee, a friend from Spokane, Washington, alerted MilesTones as soon as he was made aware of these stories being set in type. We are still trying to track down the primary source of the leaks:

BREAKING! Council Votes Against Famed Hens

Their goose is cooked. Henny and Penny learned last night that The Brentwood City Council voted against them staying in their home. The famed hens did not attend the meeting. The final vote by Erick Stonebarger, who was absent during the Janurary 26th hearing which ended in a tie, sealed the fate of the chickens, not only them, but the fate of all chickens. Ms. X the neighbor who first complained actually was there and emphased that "chickens poop 1000 times a day (?) and if one had three chickens, that adds up to 3000 pounds of chicken poop each and every day which is not acceptable in good neighborhoods," saith she. 3000 pounds is a lot of ...ah never mind!  A last ditch effort to prevent eviction of the hens is below....

Chicken Defense Before Brentwood City Council, Feb. 9, 2010 by Rev. Austin Miles.

Countdown To Chicken Verdict!

The minutes are ticking by before this evening's meeting of The Brentwood City Council where the deciding vote will be cast to determine the verdict for Henny and Penny, the famous hens from Brentwood, who are setting on their perches anxiously. 

The dispute that will be finalized at 7 PM in the Council Chambers will be the final decision as to Henny and Penny being able to stay in their backyard home or be evicted on the complaint of a neighbor who declares that the gentle hens poop 1000 times a day and she could carry it in on the soles of her shoes which would cause a multitude of diseases for society at large.

The home of the neighbor is behind a tall fence and the hens are in a coop in their own backyard which, of couse would be quite a feat to project the poop bombs from their coop, through the wires, across the lawn and up and over the fence to the backyard of the neighbor.  That is bull_ _ _ _ er...chicken._ _ ahh never mind!

The story of the plight of the hens has been picked up world wide and spotlighted on television news. Cathy Taibbi gave her take on the uproar (and over the fence) in her columns in The Examiner and Allvoices web news sites, which are also quoted around the world. Here are the links to her stories:

Gambling-Don't Bet On It

Following the just-published story below, (Heroic Minister's Stand For Integrity), regarding Pastor John Anderson, of Bay Area Rescue Mission who refused a huge "financial blessing" to withdraw his opposition to allowing casinos to build and operate in Richmond, California, this book review, which was first published on August 16, 2005 is being re-released. Read it carefully and get the book. It is absolutely the best book published on the growing problem of gambling addiction.

Gambling-Don't Bet on It
Dr. Rex M. Rogers
Book Review by Rev. Austin Miles

The Earl of Sandwich, was a problem gambler who wouldn't leave the gambling table long enough to eat his dinner, so his servants had no choice but to develop something he could eat with one hand while he gambled with the other. Hence the birth of the sandwich as we know it today. This tidbit from the new Kregel Publications release, Gambling, Don't Bet on It, demonstrates the degree to which gambling can alter a lifestyle, a personality, and in this case, even our eating habits.

Finally, we have the definitive book on gambling, better defined as, the game...that turns into pain.  It has become a religion where people faithfully worship at the Temple of Chance, genuflecting before The Wizard of Odds.

It is a totally inclusive religion that welcomes outcasts and ne'er-do-wells, along with the rich and the powerful. As long as you have a few bucks in the pocket, it's an egalitarian community.
