    While I had hoped these folks might have had time to reflect on what they did while away, and see the error of their ways, the comment about a pool table at Sam’s indicates to me that they are still pretty much in his camp. That’s probably not a good thing….

      Comment on Pool table at Sam Mullet's? (July 28th, 2014 at 12:42)

      Pool table at Sam Mullet's?

      That comment just jumped right out at me, almost as if they expect Sam to be there soon too?

      The Millers are among those appealing their convictions. From the article:

      The Millers said they do not regret going to trial but do not believe it was fair and are appealing their convictions.

    Not that I am in any way familiar with the case at hand, but something that stands out to me as not so good is that she apparently “discovered yoga”. While being in jail might be bad enough, engaging in yoga (which stems from hindu mysticism) and thus tempting God is not something I would wan’t to do, especially not as a christian.

    If someone knows her, please tell her to stop and think about what she’s doing. (Ironically, one of the purposes of yoga is to stop ones mind from thinking completely, while practicing it).

    I enjoyed the “Monday Amish News Roundup”. Thanks also for including the picture from Arthur and for ShipshewanaIndiana for sharing it. The family looks all dressed up, so wondered where they were going. I love to visit the Arthur area and it almost
    made me want to get in my car right now and drive on over.

      Glad you liked it Al. Sadly I have gotten so used to seeing these crime against Amish stories, feels like a weekly thing. We’ll have a nice set of SI’s Arthur photos later this week.

    Interesting, regarding the Bergholz group. I don’t think putting someone in prison can change their deeply held beliefs, if anything, people may hold onto their beliefs even stronger in such circumstances.

    I do hope for the best for these individuals as they rebuild their lives. Perhaps the more “worldly” ways they are encountering now will do them good. There is a lot of life beyond Sam Mullet and his group.

      That’s a good point Ed as I can easily see it breeding resentment or sense of martyrdom especially if you don’t think you were treated justly. It’s hard to read much between the lines from just this one article-they sound upbeat but obviously don’t think they got a fair trial.

    Comment on Bad cholesterol (July 31st, 2014 at 08:44)

    Bad cholesterol

    The Bergholz stuff is interesting, no doubt. However, the blurb on the genetic link or FH cholesterol is personally VERY interesting to me. I have high LDL cholesterol; I take medication to try to lower it, but it is a struggle. All, as in 100%, of my mothers family originated in the German speaking region of Switzerland. My paternal grandmothers family did as well.

    My father had his first heart attack at age 49, his second and fatal heart attack at age 59. Ironically, he was trim and fit looking. You would have never suspected that he had high cholesterol by just looking at him. I had never heard of this FH connection, so I will be reading up on this for sure.

    Thank you Amish America for pointing this link out to me!

      I’ll be really happy if this knowledge leads to any benefit for you Oldkat. Maybe identifying if you have the FH condition will point the way to another way of treating it.
