Beachy Amish Mennonite Churches

Some people think the Beachy Amish came out of the divided opinion of owning automobiles, this was not the case. True Bishop Moses Beachy could not make a serious distinction in "driving" or merely "riding along". For lots of information about the Beachy Amish Mennonites Churches have a look at their web site, a great source of Beachy information.
Please note;
This site is not the official site for the collective Beachy Amish Mennonite church, neither is it officially endorsed by the whole or any part of the Beachy churches. While some Beachy churches allow internet usage beyond email, others discourage the usage of the web among their membership

Rev. Duane Beachey and Mountaintop Removal

New York Times Oct. 28, 2006
Christianity runs wide and deep in Appalachia. At the Courthouse Cafe in Whitesburg, Mr. Beachey explained that as a Christian, concern for his neighbors drove his desire to rein in mountaintop removal
The Mennonite Central Committee Appalachia, based in Whitesburg, Ky., gave its first tour in October, focusing on a corner of southeastern Kentucky and southwestern Virginia rich in coal and diverse forests.
On the second morning of the four-day tour, the trip’s leaders, Ms. Chapman-Crane and the Rev. Duane Beachey, marched their three-member group up the mile-long trail to Bad Branch Falls.
The coal industry asserts that mountaintop removal is a safer way to remove coal than sending miners underground and that without it, companies would have to close mines and lay off workers.">Click

Black Bears 2006 BC

There are reasons to think that parts of the Queen Charlotte Islands off the north coast of British Columbia were not covered during the ice age. There is a species of Black Bear living there that is a bit different than the Black Bears on the mainland. A few of them have been large enough to make the record books.
Now deer hunters are finding that some of the Black Bears will come to a deer call. It would seem they have developed a taste for deer meat, and respond when they hear a deer call while other Bears show no interest in a deer call. Craig Beachy was using a deer call when the Bear in the picture came looking for something to eat. When it smelled the deer in the back of his pickup truck it climbed right in prepared to help himself to a free lunch. When Craig started to drive away it jumped out, but appeared reluctant to leave a good meal behind. British Columbia has an abundance of bears at this time and they don't have the fear of people like they used to. Anyone going into the bush should be aware of the Black Bears.
