Members of the Bartow community, both young
and old, will gather this weekend to participate in
the 2005 Bartow Relay For Life at Bartow
Memorial Stadium.
The event will kick off with a survivors' reception
Friday at 6 p.m., when cancer survivors will walk
the first lap of the Relay.
Live entertainment and other activities will
begin after opening ceremonies at 7 p.m., and will
continue throughout the night. A luminaria ceremo-
ny will be held at 9 p.m.
The second annual Sticky Fingers Barbecue
Cookoff will begin at 5 p.m. Dinners are $5 per
plate, and will be sold beginning from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
at the stadium concession stand. Dinners include a
full barbecue meal and drink. Proceeds will go
toward the Relay For Life fundraising goal.
Teams of 10 to 15 people will camp out Friday
night and take turns walking with their friends and
neighbors around the track throughout the evening.
The event lasts until Saturday morning, at which
time awards and other forms of recognition will con-
clude the celebration.
This year, two young friends have committed to
join in the Relay after seeing for themselves how
cancer effects, and sometimes destroys, its victims'
lives.
Seven-year-olds Michael Walker and Gregory
Rhoden have attended the Relay in years past, but
this is the first year they have been on a team.
Michael, who lost his aunt, Kim Tucker, to cancer
last year, decided he not only wanted to walk with a
team, but.he wanted to captain a team as well,
becoming the youngest ever team captain in the
Bartow Relay. He will lead the Citrus & Chemical
Bank team.
"All these years, I've been watching the team
captains," Michael said, "and I thought maybe some
year, I could be a team captain instead of just a
team member. I feel terrible for all who have passed
away (from cancer), and I want to be at the Relay to


raise money for medications and to get rid of can-
cer."
While Michael was experiencing cancer in his
family, his lifelong friend, Gregory's, mother,
Michelle, was diagnosed for the first time with
breast cancer at just 32 years old.
SAnd that was just the beginning of that family's
cancer journey.
With only a couple more treatments to go, Mrs.
Rhoden was diagnosed with a second cancer. Two
weeks later, her mother also was diagnosed with
the disease.
Mrs. Rhoden said Gregory and her younger son,
Garrett, have dealt with everything very well.
'They've grown up a lot more than they should
have at this point," she said.
Gregory and Garrett will be walking with the
Bartow Breast Friends Team Gregory for the
night, and six-year-old Garrett, for as long as he
can.
All three boys are well aware of the purpose of
the Relay event, to honor those who have survived
cancer, remember those lost to cancer, and, ulti-
mately, to raise money to eliminate the disease.
"I want my mom to be able to ride bikes with us
and play with us like she used to," Gregory said.
"I just wish cancer was gone," said his little
brother.

From The Fort Meade ;

Historical Museum


By LETA WRIGHT
For those of you who didn't at-
tend the Relay for Life cancer
walk, you'll be glad to know the
last count on Saturday morning
was $42,518.62.
This is the largest donation
Fort Meade has contributed to
Sthe program.
:There were 20 teams who set
up their individual tents around
the high school track, sold differ-
ent items and decorated in a
theme.
The Historical Museum team
was called the Do Gooders. We
sold potato chips, lollipops, soft
drinks, water, candy, doughnuts,
coffee and hot chocolate.
On Saturday morning at 7
a.m., we celebrated with a break-
fast for the workers with Donut
Man doughnuts and egg casse-
roles that were out of this world.
The casseroles were made by
Marian Clyatt, Martha Hancock
and Verna Atwell.
At the last count, we turned
in $2,784.28 as our contribution
toward the drive.
There were motor homes all
around the tack for the different
teams, so members could take
turns sleeping. We did not have
a motor home, but Peggy Lang-
ston's son, Donnie Langston, and
her daughter, Cheryl Morrison,
spent the hours between 12 and
5 a.m. tending the tent and
walking.
We could not have operated so
well if we hadn't had the help
from all of Peggy and Don Lang-
ston's children. They came to our
rescue in helping set up, working
and taking down the display.
Those young, energetic bodies
saved the day for us, and we do
sing their praises.
We had a good time, waving,


visiting and cheering on the
walkers as they passed our tent.
Volunteers who worked the
event were Peggy and Don Lang-
ston, Marian Clyatt, Martha
Hancock, Benji Speight, Mavis
Carmichael, Janet and Kenneth
Hancock, Verna Atwell, Myrtle
Birdsong, Jane Rodgers, Howard
Martin, Sherrie and Joe Wyser,
Stacey Filyaw, Donnie, Lois and
Bryan Langston, Jack and
Cheryl Morrison and Leta
Wright.
The Do Gooders sign was
made by Skip Langston. The
poster signs were made by
Cynthia Morrison. Peggy Lang-
ston was the captainof o ur
team, and she did a superb job of
directing our activities.
If you see Peggy on the street,
giver her a big thanks.
The demolition crew moved
into the Fort Meade Historical
Museum last week and started
tearing out the walls and ceil-
ings. The museum is turning
into a hull.
It just looks terrible, but they
are doing the right way. Let's
hope we never have another de-
structive hurricane.
The grass sod has been laid
around the bandstand and looks
beautiful. Trees, hedges and
plants will be set in place soon.
We are planning big time ac-
tivities for the Maypole Dance on
May 3 at 9 a.m.
Bring a folding chair and
come watch the children perform
the Maypole dance.
Refreshments of punch and
cookies will be served to all 750
students who will be attending
and all the other guests. Plan
now to come. We do need some
more volunteers to help serve
those refreshments.

Density: Visionaries


Are At It Again


Many years ago long before most
people at city hall today were on the city
payroll --a few visionary zoning board
members and city commissioners created
four "super zones" for luxury housing.
Up to that time, the city's highest zoning
category was R-1-A: "R-l" meaning single
family residential, with the "A" meaning
an upgrade from standard R-1 housing.
The new zones were R-1-2A, R-1-3A, R-
1-4A, and R-1-5A.
Skeptics wondered if Bartowans would
ever create a demand for or developers
would ever develop lot sizes and home
sizes required by these new zones. And for
several years, nobody did.
But a standard was established; the bar
was raised.
And over the years, several subdivisions
have been developed to those standards, a
few in the past year or so.
The "super zones," as this newspaper
chose to call them at the time, did not force
anybody to build or buy luxury homes on
spacious lots. But they made a point: those
who aspired to luxury could find support
in the city's development code.
And those who chose to make such an
investment in their homes would be
assured that surrounding development
was compatible, protecting their invest-
m ents. -. .: : .,. ... ... .,-. .. .
Yesteryear's vision has become today's
reality.
This week, the zoning and planning
commission took the next step, tentatively
establishing densities of one home and
two homes per acre. (Actually, the lot sizes
- 40,000 square feet and 18,500 are slight-
ly less than one acre and a half-acre,
respectively, because it is assumed that
part of the development would be in
streets and other infrastructure.)
The new zones would be designated as
Rural Estate 1 for one house per acre,
Rural Estate 2 for two houses per acre.
The half-acre RE-2 standard is only
2,500 square feet more than the present
standard for R-1-5A building lots of 16,000
square feet. It is hardly a quantum leap.


The RE-1 standard is a dramatic but
overdue realization that as Bartow reaches
farther and farther into the countryside to
annex more property, it should protect the
property values of homeowners who have
lived on one-acre lots for years, even gen-
erations.
It is too late to reverse the approval of
more than 1,200 minimum size E.F. Griffin
Road homesites on 7,500-square foot lots
with 70 feet of frontage. But it is not tod
late to take a stand for low density devel-
opment on property not yet zoned.
The argument that because the city
already has set the bar on the lowest notch,
it should continue to encourage that mini-
mum standard, rings hollow.
If that is the rationale, why bother to
hold public hearings; indeed, why bother
to have a zoning board or a city commis-
sion to recommend and enforce develop-
ment standards?
A majority of both the zoning board and
the city commission appears determined
to preserve some low density development
on the periphery of Bartow.
The visionaries of yesteryear created
"super zones;" there are now houses built
in them.
The visionaries of today have the power
to create Rural Estate zoning to preserve a
standard of housing that 'presently exists
only outside the city limits.
It's a good move.

Community Supports Relay For Life


BARTOW A few days ago I was talking with
Neal Duncan, chairman of this year's Relay For Life
Event, and as the conversation began, he exclaimed
with a tone of both excitement and slight nervous-
ness in his voice: "It's almost here!"
Yes, it is almost here; it's tomorrow, Frida, April
15, and on into the night and Saturday morning 'til
10 a.m. It is indeed an all night event.
Congratulations to Neal for a great job in leading
the executive committee of the Bartow Relay For
Life. And congratulations to all those who have
worked so diligently for so many months in the
planning, preparing, and execution of all that's
required to make the event successful. With cancer
touching, in some way or another; four out of five
of our lives, how can we not work with great pas-
sion and purpose to carry out the mission of the
American Cancer Society? We must all close the
gap and stand shoulder to shoulder to fight this
battle to find a cure for this dread disease and to
learn of more preventive measures to avoid it.
Having served as chairman of the Bartow Relay

For Life for the past three years, I have experienced
first hand the commitment of so many people from
our community to work together as a team to
achieve our goals. Bartowans have truly demon-
strated a 'great and wonderful spirit of caring and
doing something for others as has been shown
through their volunteer efforts. Efforts such as
forming Relay teams, celebrating with cancer sur-
vivors, honoring and remembering others with
luminaries, barbecuing at the cook-off contest, con-
tributing money through Relay sponsorships and
donations, and attendance and participating at the
Relay For Life event itself. When you see these indi-
viduals, I urge you to thank them, shake their
hands, pat them on the back a little, and, yes, even
give them a hug. They deserve your recognition
and you will feel good giving it.
The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is
a nationwide program to raise funds to fight cancer,
and of equal importance, to recognize and honor
those persons who have fought, or are still fighting,
their own battle against cancer. Come to the Bartow
High School Stadium on Broadway
S Avenue this Friday, April 15, and join the
hundreds of friends and families from'
our community who will be there exem-
plifying the "Spirit of Bartow." The
opening ceremony begins at 7 p.m. The
event is family oriented, tobacco and
alcohol free, and at no cost to attend.
Thanks again to all those who have
made this event possible. See you at

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

Value My Friendship? Don't Give Me 'Clocky'


He is my son-in-law, and the
father of my wonderful little two-
and-a-half-year-old grandson,
Liam, so I have to cut him a little
bit of slack.
And he knows it.
He forwarded me one of those
"News of the Weird" Internet sto-
ries a few days ago about an
alarm clock that outwits even the
wittiest sleepyheads.
And I will tell you openly and
without shame, in the words of
the late, great Lewis Grizzard,
that I don't like mornings.
I still remember the Army
recruiting billboards showing sol-
diers standing in formation at
dawn with the caption: "Our
company does more by 8 o'clock
in the morning than yours does
by noon."
To which my reaction was:
"So?"
I much preferred the bill-
boards that read: "Sleep soundly
tonight;,your National Guard is
awake."
Now that is my Army, and you
may quote me.
One-time Bartowan Ralph


Davis, who reached the rank of
brigadier general and was my
brigade commander during one
Summer camp, established a
requirement that all brigade staff
officers would assemble on the
Camp Blanding parade field
before dawn for calisthenics and
morning formation.
"Gathering in the dark and the
fog to salute a flag we cannot
see," as it was affectionately
known.
General Davis was a fine offi-
cer and I'm sure he did many
great things for the 53rd Infantry
Brigade. But .what I remember
him for was those pre-dawn for-
mations.
For 30 years, I was a member
of the Florida National Guard,
saluting flags at whatever hour
my general told me to salute
them, regardless of whether or
not I could see them, and hitting
the road as early at 5 a.m. for a
three-hour commute to drill.
For 27 of those 30 years,
nobody said I had to; once my
draft era obligation of two years
active duty and three years in the


Guard was completed, I was
there the rest of the time because
I wanted to be there. And I
enjoyed every day of it.
That does not mean that even
once in the 10 years since I retired
have I have awakened at 4:30 on
a Saturday morning and yearned
for the days when I would rum-
mage through the sock drawer in
darkness to find black not
Navy blue, or worse yet, one of
each socks to wear to drill.
Indeed, as my friends know,
my workday begins well past
sunrise, and ends not long before
midnight. It is an unconventional
schedule, but it is mine, and I
enjoy it, as does Mary.
Speaking of Mary, our alarm
clock is on her side of the bed,
which is probably good, because
I'm not sure how many times I
could throw it across the room
before hitting either the.TV set or
Liam's electric train, both of
which are well-established fix-
tures in our bedroom.
That's where the Reuters arti-
cle that Jim forwarded to me
comes in.


A 25-year-old student named
Gauri Nanda at the
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology clearly a young
woman with nothing better to do
- has created "Clocky," an alarm
clock intended to outsmart peo-
ple like me.
It is covered with a comforting
layer of shag carpet.
When first you pound
Clocky's snooze alarm button -
which, incidentally, is the best
invention since air conditioning
- it rolls off the bed and starts
making a racket again. And it
doesn't roll the same place every
time. It is computer-programmed
to roll a different distance each
time.
In order to shut off the elusive
Clocky, you have to get out of bed
and find it.
I assume that the military
model will have shag carpet in a
camouflage pattern.
I will never own one, and you
can take that to the bank.

By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer
Three students from Union
Academy Middle Magnet School
in Bartow are headed to a state
competition after placing first for
junior group documentaries at
the sixth annual Polk County
History Fair, held in March at
the Polk County Historical Mu-
seum.
Eighth-graders Rachel
Bouchillon, Kayla Goff, and Ca-
sey Taylor, under the direction of
history teacher Bennie Woodard,
presented a documentary on
"Communications in History:
Yellow Journalism and The
McKinley Papers," which
stemmed from copies of letters
sent from General Stewart L.
Woodford, United States Ambas-
sador to Spain, to President Wil-
liam McKinley prior and during
the Spanish-American War. The
letters had been passed down
through Ms. Bouchillon's family
for three generations.
The project detailed the ef-
fects of communication, both
negative and positive, on the
Spanish-American War, espe-


cially yellow journalism, which
refers to newspapers of that era
reporting the editor's interpreta-
tion of news, rather than objec-
tive journalism. If the iiforma-
tion was biased or incorrect, the
public had little means for verifi-
cation.
In their extensive research,
the students found that journal-
ists who followed this practice,
such as William Randolph
Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer, pub-
lished their articles in papers
ranging from small local newspa-
pers to the popular Post, and, in
their opinion, effectively led the
charge toward America's involve-
ment with Cuba.
The history fair is part of the
National History Day program,
which emphasizes the impor-
tance of historical research an
the use of primary sources. Stu-
dents compete in the middle or
senior division, based on their
age. Each division competes in
the categories of Historical Pa-
pers, Individual and Group Ex-
hibits, Individual and Group
Documentaries, and Individual
and Group Performances.
First and second place win-


DCT STUDENTS from Bartow 'High School
competed in the Cooperative Education Clubs'
state competition in March in Orlando. Five of
the Bartow students, Tristan Gibbons, Allison
Serletic, Rachel Stephens, Shawn Schroeder and
Mike Kelly, earned the right to compete at the
Business Professionals of America National Com-
petition, which is being held in Anaheim, near


ners in each category at the
county level go on to compete in
the Florida History Fair in Tal-
lahassee, which will be held May
5-7 this year. Those who win
first and second place in the
state competition will advance to
National History Day in June in
College Park, Md.
Polk County has been in-
volved in the National History
Day program for six years, and
participation has grown from 65
to 103 exhibits in the last two
years.
Rachel Bouchillon, described
as the "visionary" for the yellow
journalism project, is the daugh-
ter of K.C. and Debbie Bouchil-
lon of Bartow.
Kayla Goff, speaker and "as-
sistant editor," is the daughter of
Denise Brackin of Lake Wales
and J.D. Goff of Bartow.
Casey Taylor, project editor,
is the son of Joy and Eric Taylor
of Lakeland.
. Another Bartow student, Kay-
lie Starling of Bartow Middle,
also will advance to state. She
placed first in the junior individ-
ual documentaries category.

April Is Sexually Transmitted
Disease Awareness Month


April is Sexually Transmitted
Disease Awareness Month and
the Polk County Health Depart-
ment encourages local residents
to learn about sexually transmit-
ted infections and behaviors that
can put persons at risk.
Sexually transmitted diseases
(STDs) are not choosy. They
cross geographic and socio-eco-
nomic boundaries, affect both
men and women, and can cause
long-term health consequences
for those who go undiagnosed
and untreated.
There are measures individu-
als can take to reduce the risk of
becoming infected with an STD
or passing it onto to someone
else.
"Sexually transmitted infec-
tions may go unrecognized be-
cause they do not display any
signs or symptoms," Polk County
Health Department Director Dr.
Daniel O. Haight said. "Most
STDs can be treated and cured,
but some cannot be cured. Sexu-
ally active people need to know
they can get an STD over and
over again, even if it is one they
were treated for and cured of in


the past."
April is STD Awareness
Month and the health depart-
ment would like for sexually ac-
tive individuals to be aware of
the ABCs of STDs.
Avoid behaviors that may
increase the risk for infection.
Become informed about
sexually transmitted infections
including signs, symptoms, risks
and available treatments and
counseling options.
Care about yourself and oth-
ers through STD prevention,
screening and treatment.
Polk County Health Depart-
ment has professionally trained
staff available to provide confi-
dential counseling, testing, and
education to those who suspect
they may have been exposed to
an STD.
For more information on sexu-
ally transmitted infections, call
the Polk County Health Depart-
ment at 519-8722 or visit the De-
partment of Health's website at
http://www.doh.state.fl.us and
choose sexually transmitted dis-
eases from the drop down menu.

SeaSpecialties, Inc., doing
business as Florida Smoked Fish
Company, may have distributed
ready-to-eat smoked salmon and
other seafood specialty items
that are adulterated with Lis-
teria monocytogenes, an organ-
ism that can cause serious and
sometimes fatal infections in
young children, frail or elderly
people, persons with weakened
immune systems, and pregnant
women, a spokesman from the
the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
said.
Although healthy persons
may suffer only short-term
symptoms such as high fever, se-
vere headache, stiffness, nausea,
abdominal pain and diarrhea,
Listeria infection can cause
miscarriages and stillbirths
among pregnant women, or the
baby may be born with listerio-
sis.
No illnesses have been re-
ported to date in connection with
this problem.


Florida Smoked Fish Com-
pany products have been distrib-
uted to wholesalers, retailers,
restaurants, and cruise ships.
All products produced by Flor-
ida Smoked Fish Company that
are suspect should not be con-
sumed and should be destroyed
or returned to the point of sale
for refund.
The contamination was noted
after testing by Florida Smoked
Fish Company and the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services revealed the
presence of Listeria monocyto-
genes in multiple products pro-
duced on multiple dates by Flor-
ida Smoked Fish Company.
Production of all products has
been suspended while the com-
pany continues its investigation
of the source of the problem and
conducts in-depth cleaning and
sanitizing.

Zoning

S (Continued from Page IA)
,-the area.
Y 'You allow for one of these and
Sit getsbhoot-strapped into all the
nearby property." he said.
Slarch'nman said. ..he' oning
;.board canh6t change the zoning
That is requested; it can only vote
to recommend approval or disap-
pproval to the city commission.
Raulerson asked Wiegers
whether the applicant requested
R-1 .zoning or if it -was his recom-
mnenidation.
: "I don't recall," Wiegers
replied, then said: "It was a
mutual decision."
John Frost repeated the ques-
lion. asking Wiegers whether the
R-1 zoning was his proposal or
6he applicant's.
S"I don't recall," Wiegers said.
S"I probably said it would make
sense to use R-1. It's consistent
with everything else we've done."
S "Have you ever seen a develop-
ment you didn't like?" Frost
Asked.
S"Ye, Mr. Frost, I have,"
Wiegers replied, adding: "Mr.
Frost, I object to you getting into
iy mind and telling me what I
think."
": .Sam ..Thomas, who lives on
E.F. Griffin Road, said there are
a number of homes in the area on
parcels of one acre or more.
"It seems like it's being zoned
wrong," he said. :
Wiegers .suggested that the
board could recommend to the
city commission that the annexa-
tion and zoning be approved,
with the provision that only one
house could be built on the tract.
S"So moved," Raulerson
promptly responded, and Guffey
seconded.

Mrs. Brewer expressed con-
cern that the limitation "could
present an undue financial bur-
den on the applicant.",
'"Why are you. so intent on hav-
ing such a large parcel?" she
asked.

"That's, what the owner says
he wants," Raiulerson replied.
The recommendation passed
on a.3-to-1 vote; with Marchman
joining Raulerson and Guffey in
voting for it, and Mrs. Brewer
voting "no."

Fort Meade Raises S42,500


At Relay For Life


With a goal of $20,000, Fort Meade raised more than double that
amount at last Friday's Relay for Life event.
Not only did residents work hard to save lives, they had a lot of
fun at the event also.
Pictured (clockwise from top, left): balloons were launched as vol-
unteers' names were called; little Honorary Co-chairman Danielle
Hensley waits for her turn on stage; the Fort Meade Historical Society
shows their true colors red, white and blue; the House of Blues
was populated by City Manager Al Minner and Leisure Services
Director Dennis Guenther; Wendy's School of Dance offered a variety
of entertainment; Oakview Lakes Kitchen Band played to the crowd;
Mosaic, a corporate sponsor, offered a M*A*S*H*-themed tent; Lou
Ann Bigsby (in the wheel chair) being pushed by her son, Cannon
Bigsby. Friday was the last day of chero for Mrs. Bigsby. She was
very..weak because of her battle with colon cancer, btt was deter-
mined to be at Relay anyway. This was her first year as a survivor;
pride was evident as students from Lewis Elementary's chorus went
around the track. (Photos by Janice Jared)

2B


April 15th is the time of the
year when American citizens can
communicate with their govern-
ment.
I cannot testify for anyone else,
but I look forward to this mar-
velous opportunity, and I am care-
ful not to waste it.
S This year, for example, so
much has happened to me since
last year it took 15 single-spaced
typed pages to include every-
thing.
However, to be perfectly honest
(and who's perfect), I am a little
disappointed. All the years I have
included a personal letter in with
my tax returns, I have yet to get a
personal letter in return.
I'm beginning to think this is a
one-way relationship, and it
wouldn't take much for me to quit
this correspondence entirely.
Then what would my govern-
ment think? How would they
know what I've been up to all year
long?
I am not one to complain, but
filling out my income tax return
seems to be getting more compli-
cated each year. When I familiar-
ize myself with the rules for one
year, someone changes them the
next year.
What could not be deducted
last year can be this year; and
what was not deductible last year
I must pay twice.
Why can't someone in the gov-
'ernment make up my mind and
quit all this unnecessary fluctua-
tion?
On April 16, each year, our gov-
ernment immediately destroys
the tax rulebooks to keep them


from falling into the hands of a
foreign power. By "foreign," I
mean Canada.
Heaven help us if our neighbor
north of the border ever got their
hands on this information.
Canadians are not usually known
for their joviality, but once they
see these books, the entire coun-
try would break out into uncon-
trollable laughter.
Who knows what this would do
to the delicate relationship now
existing between the two coun-
tries?
Because of this important pre-
caution, they need new tax law
books each year.
Right after the New Year's Eve
party, someone in the Internal
Revenue office asks his assistant
to "bring me those tax books."
When informed there are no
books, this same person (who
shall remain nameless for obvious
reasons) says to his assistant,
"Bob, write me a new tax law
Book for this year and have it on
my desk by 5 o'clock."
This sets the wheels of govern-
ment to whirling and by golly, by
5 o'clock, that new tax law book is
on the desk.
The reason the tax laws differ
from one year to the next is the
assistant responsible for this is
fired every year and a new one
hired.
The only requirement for the
assistant is that his name must
be "Bob."
I wish one year Bob would call
me. It seems he has overlooked
many legitimate deductions every
year.


I would like to submit some
recommendations to be consid-
ered for next year.
First, I am not too happy with
this April 15th deadline. I feel it
is much too restrictive and rigid.
What is so special about April 15
that our government should have
such an apprehension about me
missing this deadline? What is
wrong with June 15? Or, Sept. 22,
for that matter?
I believe the IRS should be
more understanding and practice
a nonjudgmental attitude. After
all, this is a new millennium call-
ing for a new attitude on this
whole business of taxes. They
ought to trust me to send in my
taxes whenever I'm ready or
remember.
There are some deductions I
have never seen on the forms I
have filled out and I have always
wondered why. Let me list some:
Grandchildren have never
been listed as a legitimate deduc-
tion. Does the IRS know just how
expensive grandchildren are? My
jellybean budget -alone could
finance a small third world coun-
try and I only have three grand-
children!
Pets have never been includ-
ed as deductions. Pets have a
marvelous role in enhancing our
lives and giving us a good excuse
to get out of the house and walk
around the block. Pet food is
expensive, as any pet owner
knows, not to mention those exor-'
bitant veterinary bills. (Does my
doghouse qualify as a home
office? I spend a lot of time there,
so it should.)


Vacation is another over-
looked item. Does the IRS think I
am taking a vacation just for my
health? Oh, yeah. I am. Well, my
health is important. Every dollar
I spend on vacation should be
deducted from my income and-not
be taxable, which would take a lot
of stress off my next vacation.:
Presents don't tell me
Christmas presents are not
authentic: tax-deductible consid-
erations. If it were inot for me buy-
ing all those Christmas.presents,
the general economy of bur coun-
try would go into a slump. Buying
Christmas presents is the one
thing I can do for my country and
I should expect .soihe compersa-
tion.
These are. just .a few sugges-
tions I would make if left up to
me.
There, is no way I could get
away with writing my own ticket
for my personal income tax
return. The government has set
up rules and regulations to guide
everyone.
Some people think they can
write their own ticket when it
comes to God, forgetting God has
established rules and regulations
that apply to everyone.
The Bible clearly says: "There
is a way which seemeth right
unto a man, but the end thereof
are the ways of death" (Proverbs
14:12 KJV). And, "Jesus saith
unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me" (John 14:6
KJV).

We Are an Emanation

of God

When asked where we come from, most of us think of our parents
or a geographic locale rather than the ultimate source of our being,
which is Spirit. We come from God, and the only reason that most
of us don't recognize this is that our bodies delude us into thinking
that we are separate from everything else. Ultimately, we are all
connected through this connection with the one Spirit, but often our
individual egos may not allow us to see this. Our bodies convince us
that we are unique, separate beings. As physical beings, we are
indeed unique and separate from all else, but as spiritual beings,
we are part of a greater whole. As physical beings, we undergo con-
stant change, and will eventually die, but as spiritual beings, we
are eternal. We should remember then, that we are connected to
God, and are indeed part of God, an emanation from a holy source.
So we do not lose heart.

By ROGER CAMPBELL

.-The letter I received from a
man iri Southwest Africa bright-
enied myday .
-In spite of the violence in his
homeland and serious financial
problems, he's learned the value

of starting each day thankful to
be alive, choosing to enjoy the
beauty of the morning rather
'than focus on fears about what
may come his way before night-
:fall.
SIn doing.so, this former worri-
:er is following the advice of our
Lord who told His followers to
live one day at a time (Matthew
;6:34)..
Millions will spoil today, fret-
ting over tomorrow; even though
most of their expected tragedies
will never take place. No one has
!information enough about the
future to worry intelligently, and
encouraging encounters with
positive people often appear in
time to turn our minds from fear
to faith, providing we're alert to
their arrival.
We stood looking out a lobby
window into the work area of a
tire store; he was a junior in high
school and I an untold number of
years his senior. He wai watch-
ing workmen install new tires on
his red S-10 pickup while I wait-
ed for them to mount new ones on
my nine-year-old black Sable.
SSeizing the opportunity to
share something life-changing
with him, I simply said: "Start
every day thankful."
I have no way of knowing
what trials my S-10 acquain-
tance will, face in 'the years
ahead, but when difficult days
arrive, I hope he'll remember our
encounter of encouragement
when I recommended faith
instead of fretting.
Moving from the window on
tire trivia to a glass door show-
easing: a:- sunny spring day, I


Lunch will be served between
the workshops. Reservations are
requested, but not required.
Worship and an adult forum
are scheduled for Sunday, begin-
ning with worship at 8:30 a.m.,
with Bell preaching and worship
music from lona. The forum will
begin at 9:45 a.m. in McLeod
Hall, followed by another wor-
ship service at 11.
Bell is an ordained minister in
the Church of Scotland and a
music leader of the lona
Community.
The church is located at 637
Sixth Street Northwest.

found myself standing beside a
thirty-something man wearing a
frown.
"Great day!" I exclaimed, try-
ing to brighten his mood.
"About, time!" he growled,
clinging to the gloomy cold week
preceding our meeting.
"I'm the author of a book in
which I open one of the chapters
saying if you can rise each morn-
ing not being down about money
or the weather, you're on your
way to a good day," I told him.
"I'm down about both," he
replied.
"Give me your address and.I'll
send you the book," I offered.
Scribbling his address on a
sheet from a small notepad and
handing it to me may have been
one of the most important acts of
his life. The book has been sent to
this troubled man along with my
prayers.
After leaving the tire store, I
stopped for gas and a newspaper,
unaware that inside the station
awaited one of the strangest
experiences of my life.
"What year did you graduate
from high school?" asked a fellow
customer.
And, to my surprise, when I
gave my answer, he burst into a
series of hit songs from that era,
attracting the attention of all in
the station. But after the songs
came a note of sadness, revealing
a need of the singer and letting
me know this was another
encounter of encouragement.
No matter how badly things
look today, expect God to come
through for you.
Doubt your doubts and believe
your beliefs.
Join me and my Southwest
Africa correspondent as we start
each day thanking God that we
can bask in the basic blessings of
the moment.
And keep watching for
encounters of encouragement to
brighten every cloudy day.


Bake sales are popular way to
earn money for organizations and
good causes, but for busy folks it's
sometimes hard to find time to be
creative in the kitchen.
Bar cookies are a good solution
- they taste just as yummy as
dropped or cut-out cookies and
are much easier to prepare. They
offer a busy cook a more conve-
nient way to lend a hand in
fundraising efforts.
One of those good causes is
helping to feed the hungry. On
Page 4B of today's issue, you'll
find ways to help and 6rganiza-
tions that are working nationally
to help. And if one of those ways is
a bake sale, try some of these,

This dog belonged to a gentle
old man, and seeks a home
where she will be as appreci-
ated as she was before his
death. Unfortunately, an at-
tack by a vicious dog three
months ago has made her
leery of other animals, so
she'll do best in a household
where she's the only dog. she
needs to be kept in a pen or
enclosed porch for the same
reason. New owner must be
will to allow occasional visits
by previous owner's son,
grandson and great-grandson.
