- NNHS Newsletter -
On July 24, 1847, the pioneer company of our people came into this valley.
An advance group had arrived a day or two earlier. Brigham Young arrived on
Saturday. The next day, Sabbath services were held both in the morning and
in the afternoon. There was no hall of any kind in which to meet. I suppose
that in the blistering heat of that July Sunday they sat on the tongues of
their wagons and leaned against the wheels while the Brethren spoke. The
season was late, and they were faced with a gargantuan and immediate task if
they were to grow seed for the next season. But President Young pleaded with
them not to violate the Sabbath then or in the future.

From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 07/22/09, 7:40 PM - "MalWare Reported by Google on NNHSsite.":
My friend, Carol -
Google is reporting your Newsletter 2009 site as Malware. My FireWall is reporting the same. Two of my three browsers (Firefox and Chrome) are reporting the same. IE-7 is not. See link below for more information. I am using Win-XP.
I recommend that you ask your son to look into all this.
Forgive this if you are already aware.
As always, thanks for what you do!!
Please let me know.
- John London
Thank you, John!
been fuming about this since I myself was first blocked from seeing the site
Monday night, but after standing on my head six weeks from Tuesday, and scanning
my systems and finding them already squeaky clean, I just realized two things:
one, not everyone is being blocked, and two, it's not our site per se which has
problems, but the entire 00freehost server.
(My #5 son) Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL) is as mystified as I am; his computer is not being blocked, but the rest of the computers in the house are.
(my #6 son) Dale (Harty
- Hillsboro HS,
IL / American School, IL - '02 - of MA). We may just have to
wait a few days until 00freehost gets their act together.
I wondered why I hadn't heard from more people about the problem, and why many more people kept sending me fresh content as though everything was fine and dandy!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/23/09, 4:18 PM - "Malware - This is what I got from Google":
When I just now tried to open the site I was told by my computer that the site has "malware" on it and that it can contaminate your computer with viruses...have you heard about this? I have been on the sacred soil for over two weeks and just got home last night...Here's the message I got...
Thanks, Jean! As you see if you read this carefully enough, the problem is not specific to us, but with other sites carried by the 00freehost server.The good news is that no "suspicious content" has been detected since July 21, so I'm hopeful that the block will be lifted soon.
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/23/09, 6:54 PM - "RE: Malware":
No problems or notifications when I load up the web page.
Thank you, David! It just dawned on me that not everyone was being blocked...

GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Joyce!
1. From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD":
Attached is the two-sided brochure.... It has an order form on it. All former CNC students (whether or not they got a degree from CNC) can get the $5 alumni discount if they order the book with this form. They will need to write on the order form "alumni discount" and put $24.95 in the blank beside $29.95. They will have to pay S&H also and (if in Virginia) 5% Sales Tax.
Attached also is an ad we ran in the Daily Press, which lists places where the book can be bought in the Tidewater area. Except for the CNU bookstore, there is no discount price for these copies. However, buyers can get signed copies at all of these places EXCEPT the CNU Bookstore, which did not want signed copies. Signed means signed by all 3 authors: Chambers, Hubbard, and Wood.
Contact Dr. Chambers at email@example.com.

Come, Come, Ye Saints
"This hymn text was written by William Clayton, who was inspired by the existing hymn 'All Is Well' and his experiences traveling to Utah as one of the Mormon Pioneers. They, the early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, gathered from around the world and walked across the American plains to find a new home in the West where they could live their religion without persecution. They settled and colonized much of what is now the state of Utah and although the bitter persecution of the past has, for the most part, been replaced with understanding and respect, for members of the Church throughout the world the hymn 'Come, Come Ye Saints' continues to represent their heritage of faith and sacrifice."
William Clayton, April 15, 1846
(1814 - 4 Dec 1879)
Come, come, ye
Saints, no toil or labor fear;
But with joy wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
'Tis better far for us to strive
Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this and joy your hearts will swell
All is well! All is well!
Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
'Tis not so; all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we'll have this tale to tell
All is well! All is well!
We'll find the place which God for us prepared,
Far away in the West.
Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
There the Saints will be blessed.
We'll make the air with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we'll tell
All is well! All is well!
And should we die before our journey's through,
Happy day! All is well!
We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
With the just we shall dwell!
But if our lives are spared again
To see the Saints their rest obtain;
Oh, how we'll make this chorus swell
All is well! All is well!
