   Aiken Standard (Newspaper) - June 12, 2011, Aiken, South Carolina                                 By DARLENE SUPERVILLE  Associated Presa  WASHINGTON, IXC. — President Barack Obama said people need to be patient about the economic recovery and that training workers tor manufacturing jobs w ill help w ith the turnaround.  The recession didn’t happen overnight and won’t end that way, either, the president said Saturday in his weekly  radio and online address.  ’It’* going to lake time,” Obama said.  Recent polling found broad disapproval with Obama’s handling of the economy as the 2012 presidential election takes  shape. It reached 59 percent in a Washington Post'ABC News poll.  Job growth slowed sharply in May, and unemployment inched up to 9.1 percent Economic indicators also showed that manufacturers cut 5,000 jobs last month. Those were the first job losses in that sector in seven months.  No president since World War lf has won a second  term with a jobless rate above 7.2 percent, ami Obama’s options for achieving faster economic growth before the November 2012 election appear limited.  Obama scheduled a visit to Durham, N C ., on Monday for a session with his jobs council on how Washington can encourage pnvate-sector hiring. C ouncil members and administration officials also planned to hear from busi  nesses in the region.  Last Wednesday, Obama announced an effort by the private sector, colleges and the National Association of Manufacturers to help half a million community college students become trained and certified for manufacturing jobs. They would get a credential guaranteeing that they are skilled.

Winslow found the piece of his family’s heritage chi eBay, an online auction website, several weeks ago.  The small, brown leather-cover Bible is still intact, the pages yellowed, and the title page at the beginning of the New Testament reads it was published in Edinburgh. Scotland, in 1789, “by the assigns of Alexander Kincaid, His Meetly > printer.”  A signature is located inside the dover from Rufus Winslow, his great-grandfather times four. Under bis name, it is wntten that Rufus received the Bible in 1790.  “It’s the only piece of heritage that I own now,’’ Winslow said.  When Winslow first spotted the family treasure on eBay, titled “Rufus Winslow’s Bible,” he was certain it had belonged to his relative.  Onginally from New York, Winslow moved to Aiken about 12 years ago  He did extensive research of his family heritage and knew the name Rufus.  The location - Williamson, N.Y.  - added to Winslow’s gut feeling that it really was the Bible of his relative.  The seller found the Bible in a box that belonged to another man who Winslow said was not a relative of the family.  The bid started at $2ti, ami only one other person w as try mg to purchase the Bible, Winslow said.  The bid ended around $165, but  (H)ow often do j you get a chance to : own a piece of your ; family s history * unless it s handed : down through the \ generations? ” I  Don Winslow  Aiken resident  Winslow said he would have paid more if necessary .  “I was willing to pay a lot more because, like I said, how often do you get a chance to own a piece of your family’s history unless it’s handed down through the generations?" Winslow said.  When the package arrived in the mail. Winslow said he got goose-bumps, knowing that he now had a tangible connection to a relative who lived hundreds of years ago.  “I’m just elated,” Winslow said.  “It was one of those real neat moments. I really wish that Bible could talk and tell me where it’s been.”  To further confirm that this Bible  belonged to Rufus, the name Lydia is lightly written inside the cover. Rufus had four siblings, and one was a sister named Lydia, Winslow said.  Winslow said he didn’t start digging up his family tree until he was in his 50s.  I ie said he w ished he had started earlier, when his grandfather was alive, but the Internet has made find-  Staft photos by Amy Banton  Don Winslow holds a Bible he found and purchased on eBay that was published in 1789 and owned by his relative.  mg the details behind hi* heritage feasible.  Through an online ancestry database and DNA confirmation, Winslow said he traced his roots back to  the Mayflower.  As for Rufus, the man who owned the Bible, Winslow said he believed he was a fanner, a Quaker who lived in upstate New York and was bom in Massachusetts in 1776. Ruths passed away in 1868, and Winslow said he wasn’t sure where he was  buried.  Winslow plans to keep the Bible and later hand it down to his children to keep it in the family where it belongs.  “It’s just fascinating to know where you came from,” Winslow said. “You go to school and you learn all this history ami you wonder how your relatives interacted in that and how they fit in to all of it,” Contact Amy Bunton at uhantonCaatkynstanJarU com
