I freely admit I’m not an intelligent man. I’m witty at times, occasionally I juggle, and I’m thoughtful enough to never play my banjo in public. But when it comes to algebra, interest rates, home equity loans or remembering birthdays, I’m pert near hopeless.
I am a Trustee at the Pentecostal’s of Pittsburg Church. At a recent meeting with our pastor, I learned that the FCC has auctioned off the 600 MHz frequencies currently used for wireless microphones and other related sound equipment to the TV broadcasting industry. We have until July 13, 2020 to replace our current equipment which includes six microphones, our transmitting unit, and most of the sound system at a cost of about $1,500. This will also affect other churches, schools, conference centers, sport stadiums, theaters, and other users who use such devices. It upsets me that the FCC has the power to make money while costing our community thousands of dollars. If this is upsetting to you as it is to me, write Washington and tell them how you feel.

I have a confession to make: I love Venn diagrams. I know. My inner nerd is showing. Invented by the 19th Century mathematician, John Venn, Venn diagrams are graphs which help us visualize how things are related. Usually a Venn diagram will have two or more circles representing different groups or ideas. The areas where those circles overlap show what those groups or ideas have in common.
