Spirit world (Latter Day Saints)

In Latter Day Saints theology, the term spirit world refers to the realm where the spirits of the dead await the resurrection. In LDS thought, this spirit world is divided into at least two conditions: paradise and spirit prison: Paradise includes "the spirits of the just, faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality."Spirit prison is the condition of the spirits of "the wicked... the ungodly and the unrepentant who had defiled themselves while in the flesh... the rebellious who rejected the testimonies and the warnings of the ancient prophets". The latter will continue to receive gospel teaching and be given the opportunity to repent, though their disposition toward repentance will only change as they recognize and accept gospel truths and believe in Jesus Christ; the spirit world is believed to be a place of continued spiritual growth for all spirits who embrace the teachings of Christ. Christ organized this teaching process during the time between his death on the cross and his resurrection, among those, faithful to the gospel, so that they could teach those who had not yet heard its message.

Brigham Young stated, "Where is the spirit world? It is right here... Do go beyond the boundaries of the organized earth? No, they do not... Can you see it with your natural eyes? No. Can you see spirits in this room? No. Suppose the Lord should touch your eyes that you might see, could you see the spirits? Yes, as plainly as you now see bodies." Joseph Smith taught: "The spirits of the just... are not far from us, know and understand our thoughts and emotions, are pained therewith." Spirit prison is believed by the Latter-day Saints to be both a place and the state of the soul between death and the resurrection, for people who have either not yet received knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ, or those who have been taught but have rejected it. It is a temporary state within the spirit world; those who rejected the gospel after it was preached to them may suffer in a condition known as hell. The suffering associated with the spirit prison refers to anguish of the soul because of acute knowledge of one's own sins and unclean state.

Latter-day Saints believe that spirit prison is a place in the post-mortal spirit world for those who have "died in their sins, without a knowledge of the truth, or in transgression, having rejected the prophets". This is a temporary state in which spirits will be taught the gospel and have the opportunity to repent and accept ordinances of salvation that are performed for them in temples; those who accept the gospel may dwell in paradise until the resurrection. Those who choose not to repent but who are not sons of perdition will remain in spirit prison until the end of the Millennium, when they will be freed from hell and punishment and be resurrected to a telestial glory. In the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, "outer darkness" has two separate meanings. First, LDS Church scripture uses the term outer darkness to refer to a condition in the spirit world; the Book of Mormon teaches that after death, the spirits of those who "chose evil works rather than good" in mortality will be "cast out into outer darkness".

This is considered to be a condition of great torment, where there will be "weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth". In this sense, outer darkness and spirit paradise are the two possible destinations for individuals after death; this place of torment in the spirit world is much more referred to by modern Latter-day Saints as spirit prison. Second, in modern Latter-day Saint vernacular, outer darkness refers to an eternal state of punishment. Mortals who during their lifetime become sons of perdition—those who commit the unpardonable sin—will be consigned to outer darkness, it is taught that the unpardonable sin is committed by those who "den the Son after the Father has revealed him". However, the vast majority of residents of outer darkness will be the "devil and his angels... the third part of the hosts of heaven" who in the pre-existence followed Lucifer and never received a mortal body. The residents of outer darkness who received a mortal body, while being resurrected like the rest of mankind, are the only children of God that will not receive one of three kingdoms of glory at the Last Judgment, remaining in that state of suffering for their own sins, for eternity.

This state shares some similarities with certain Christian views of hell. On this subject, Joseph Smith taught that those who commit the unpardonable sin are "doomed to Gnolaum—to dwell in hell, worlds without end." The word gnolaum is used elsewhere by Smith to mean "eternal". It is believed by Latter-day Saints that "few" people who have lived on the earth will be consigned to this state, but Latter-day Saint scripture suggests that at least Cain will be present, it is unclear in the teachings of Mormonism whether both the temporary and permanent uses of outer darkness refer to physical places or if both are descriptions of personal states of suffering and torment. The uncanonized LDS Church Bible Dictionary suggests that biblical "expressions about'hell-fire' are probably... figurative of the torment of those who willfully disobey God." It is unclear whether sons of perdition will be redeemed.

Owyhee County Courthouse

The Owyhee County Courthouse in Murphy, Idaho, is a 1-story Art Deco building designed by Tourtellotte & Hummel and constructed in 1936. The brick building features a prominent entry with fluted pilasters on either side of a square arch, with foliated sunburst panels that frame an entablature of floral and wavelet designs. A panel above the entry reads, "Owyhee County Courthouse." The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Owyhee County was organized in Idaho Territory in 1863, the county seat was first at Ruby City at Silver City, in 1934 voters moved the county seat to Murphy; the Idaho State Legislature ratified the move in 1999 changing the Idaho Code to reflect the relocation from Silver City to Murphy. In 1936 the county built a new courthouse on what was a section of State Highway 45, now State Highway 78, at Murphy. A dancehall had been the temporary courthouse, it burned in 1939; the Owyhee County Courthouse was renovated and expanded in 1973, with 1-story brick additions at either end of the original structure.

The only parking meter in Owyhee County was installed at the courthouse in the early 1950s. Gem County Courthouse Media related to Owyhee County Courthouse at Wikimedia Commons Owyhee County Government website

Silly Symphony (comic strip)

Silly Symphony titled Silly Symphonies, is a weekly Disney comic strip that debuted on January 10, 1932 as a topper for the Mickey Mouse strip's Sunday page. The strip featured adaptations of Walt Disney's popular short film series, Silly Symphony, which released 75 cartoons from 1929 to 1939, as well as other cartoons and animated films; the comic strip outlived its parent series by six years, ending on October 7, 1945. Silly Symphony related the adventures of Bucky Bug, the first Disney character to originate in the comics, it went on to print loose adaptations of Silly Symphony shorts using the characters and setting of the original shorts, but adding new plotlines and incidents. It went on to print adaptations of some of Disney's feature films, as well as periods of gag strips featuring Donald Duck and Pluto. By late 1935, the strip had become a standalone half-page, was no longer a topper for the Mickey Mouse Sunday strip; the strip was titled Silly Symphonies. The switch happened in the February 18, 1934 strip, just three weeks before Bucky Bug would be replaced with a new storyline, "Birds of a Feather".

The complete strip has been reprinted in four hardcover collections, Silly Symphonies: The Complete Disney Classics, published from 2016 to 2019 by IDW Publishing's Library of American Comics imprint. The original creative team for the strip was animator Earl Duvall and artist Al Taliaferro, with Duvall responsible for writing and penciling, Taliaferro inking. Duvall, who wrote the Silly Symphony short Bugs in Love, created Bucky Bug as the hero of the new Sunday strip. In the first sequence, which lasts for three months, a young bug is born and sets forth into the world to make a name for himself. Stumped for a name, he asks the readers for help, the strip encouraged readers to write to their newspapers with name suggestions. In the strip, a big pile of letters is delivered to the bug, he spends two weeks combing through the letters to reveal the winning name: Bucky Bug. Bucky travels through the forest to make his fortune, meeting up with a "friendly tramp" named Bo, traveling to the insect city of Junkville.

Bucky falls in love with the beautiful June Bugg, her father -- the mayor of Junkville -- makes Bucky a general of his army. The bug couple is happy, but just a few strips the alarm sounds to alert the community that war has been declared by the flies. Duvall began an epic battle against the flies which raged for 28 weeks -- but just before the story ended in April 1933, Duvall left the Disney studio. Animator Jack Kinney wrote that Duvall owed Walt Disney several weeks worth of storyboards, Duvall gathered his belongings one day and left the company, "leaving Walt holding the bag". Alberto Becattini suggests that Duvall's hasty exit was due to owing money to his colleagues that he couldn't pay. Whatever the reason for Duvall's departure, Taliaferro became the artist for the strip, he remained in that position for six years, with Ted Osborne as the strip's writer. Osborne and Taliaferro continued the story of Bucky for another 11 months ending the saga on March 4, 1934. In 1934, Taliaferro drew the Silly Symphony story arc based on the cartoon The Wise Little Hen, which featured the first appearance of Donald Duck as a secondary character.

That story, which lasted on the Sunday pages from September to December 1934, gave Taliaferro a particular liking for the Duck's character. He pitched the idea of a Donald strip to Walt Disney, Disney allowed him a trial run in the Silly Symphony comic. Finishing up a "The Three Little Pigs" adaptation and writer Ted Osborne began an extended run of Donald Duck gag strips from August 30, 1936 to December 5, 1937. Taliaferro pitched the idea of a solo Donald comic strip to King Features Syndicate, working with writers Merrill De Maris and Homer Brightman. On February 2, 1938, the Donald Duck comic strip started appearing in daily newspapers. A Sunday version was added on December 10, 1939. For the strip's first four years -- from "Bucky Bug" through "The Further Adventures of the Three Little Pigs" -- all of the dialogue was written in rhyming couplets; this changed with the 15-month period from August 1936 to December 1937 when Donald Duck was featured in the strip performing pantomime gags with little or no dialogue at all.

When Donald relinquished the strip in favor of an adaptation of the new Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film, the dialogue was written in storybook style, without rhyming couplets, the rhymes never returned. The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs sequence was the first of many newspaper comic strip adaptations of newly-released Disney animated features; the film's general release in February 1938 came in the middle of the newspaper continuity, published from December 1937 to April 1938. The strip used a number of story ideas that were abandoned in the film, including a more elaborate and comical meeting between the Prince and Snow White, an entire storyline in which the Evil Queen kidnaps the Prince to prevent him from saving Snow White. After the Snow White adaptation in 1938, the strip featured a mix of the three established motifs -- further adaptations of Silly Symphony shorts and animated features and several runs of gag strips featuring a popular character, Pluto. Pluto was given star billing in a five-week run of strips titled Pluto the Pup, which ran from February 19 to March 19, 1939.

The dog's owner, Mickey Mouse, was featured in the other cartoon on the Mickey Mouse strip's Sunday page, by this time, Donald Duck was b
