BHS grieves the death


of 10th grade student


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Bell community was devas-
tated to learn Monday evening that
15-year-old David Garrett Hudson
had passed away.
A tenth grade student at Bell High
School, Garrett was a member of the
track team, Hi-Q team, criminal jus-
tice state team and was treasurer of
his sophomore class.'
He enjoyed hunting, fishing and
playing the guitar.
The son of David and Lisa Hud-
son, Garrett liked to tell his mother
that he learned everything he need-
ed to know in life while in the third
grade.
Garrett's favorite teacher, Anni
Egan remembered her former stu-
dent on Tuesday as a brilliant young
man who hated to eat vegetables. *,
"Garrett liked to make up stories,"
Egan said. "He loved math and sci-
ence. I expected to be able to see
him win a Nobel Peace Prize one
day ... I never expected this."
According to Dr. Jim Surrency,
assistant superintendent of schools,
the BHS administration and staff.
met with students on Tuesday to


helping students deal with the loss
of not only Garrett, but also the
two other BHS students who have
passed away since school started
three weeks ago.
"It is important to help our stu-
dents or anyone who may be deal-
ing with a grieving situation to seek
out support from family, friends and
school personnel," Surrency said.
"The emotional effects of a tragedy
may be significant and can influence
student emotions for several weeks
or months. We encourage parents
to be very observant of how their
students and/or children are dealing
with a crisis such as the passing of a
fellow student.
According to Surrency, the school
staff and counselors are prepared to
observe students at school who may
be experiencing difficulties in deal-
ing with this grief. Parents are en-
couraged to listen to their students'
concerns.
"If you, as a parent, become con-
cerned with your student's long or
short term adjustment to an event
such as this, please contact your
school counselor' for follow-up,"


Trenton campus to assist students.
By Carrie A. Mizell
A long commute to Gainesville or
Lake City to attend classes at Saint
Leo University is no longer neces-
sary for 23 area students who signed
up for 89 courses this fall at the col-
lege's newly opened Trenton office.
According to Chuck Oden, director
of Saint Leo University's Trenton of-
fice, onsite classes for the fall semes-
ter began on August 25 at the Trenton
campus, which is located next to the
Gilchrist County School District of-
fices on NW 11th Avenue.
"The response from the commu-
nity so far has been very positive, but
we are wanting to get the word out at

every opportunity," Oden said.
Currently there are seven courses
running onsite and 94 online courses,
Oden explained. A full time academic
advisor, Deanna Castell is also avail-
able onsite to assist students face to
face.
According to Oden, the Trenton
facility currently boasts office space
and four classrooms. Further renova-
tions will enable Saint Leo Universi-
ty to add an additional classroom and
three computer rooms for students.
Once renovations are accomplished
Saint Leo officials would need to ex-
plore further about whether opening
the computer lab to the public is fea-
sible since the wireless connection in
the building runs through the school
board server.
At a ribbon-cutting ceremony held
at 'Saint Leo University's Trenton
campus on May 6, Dr. Jim Surrency,
assistant superintendent, spoke on
what an asset Saint Leo will be to the
community.
Gilchrist County students will now
have the opportunity through a part-
nership with both Lake City Com-
munity College and Saint Leo Uni-
versity to receive a full education in
Gilchrist County from kindergarten
through Master's degree.


Thomas and Clemons win primary

Roux, Slaughter, Bruce and Durden advance to general election


By Carrie A. Mizell
Politicians seeking office in Gil-
christ County were up in arms last
week after having to wait two days
to find out the results of the primary
;election once a problem with repub-
lican ballots at two voting precincts
delayed the final count.
According to Connie Sanchez,
Gilchrist County Supervisor of Elec-
tions,. the timing marks on all repub-
lican ballots at 2A-Donnie Precinct
and 3A-Bell Precinct were coded in-
correctly therefore causing the voting
machine to print the numbers on the
tape for the precinct listed above it
rather than the correct precinct. '
"I apologize for it taking two
days," Sanchez said. "But we wanted
to make sure every candidate got the
exact number of votes. We had to go
by the law."
Sanchez explained that her office
had used Printelect, a New Bern,
North Carolina, based ballot print-
ing company in the past and had no
major problems. As one of the largest.
ballot printers in the United States,
Sanchez said she had complete con-
fidence in Printelect prior to the pri-
mary election, but has since decided
to order ballots, for the general elec-
tion on Nov. 4 from a Florida based
ballot printer, so if there are problems
in the future a faster turnout can be
expected from. the company.
A test check of ballots was success-
full) nrn through voting machines in
Gilchrist County 10 days prior to the
primary election with no problem,
Sanchez explained. It was not until
after the polls had closed, and the
courthouse lawn had filled with anx-
ious politicians, their family mem-
bers, .and supporters on Aug. 26 that
Sanchez learned there was a serious
problem. Initially, Sanchez and Can-
vassing Board Chairman Judge Ed
Philman thought there was a problem
with the voting machines. It was not
until a service. representative from
PREMIER Election Solutions, Inc.,
maker of the voting machines, ex-
amined the equipment on Wednesday
morning and determined there was a
problem with the ballots and not the
machine.
With just 35 percent of Gilchrist
County's 10,448 registered voters
casting a ballot in the primary elec-
tion, Sanchez said she is now con-
cerned that problems from the prima-

Chamber of Commerce

gets 3-year renewal on

Main Street location


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission.
adopted an agenda change on Mon-
day, Aug. 22 to listen to Chamber of
Commerce representatives requesting
a contact extension for office space.
John McPherson, Gilchrist County
attorney explained to the board the
current lease with the chamber of
commerce is for three years and ex-
pires in September 2008. The county
does not charge the chamber of com-
merce any rent, but they are required
to pay for utilities. The offices are
currently located at 210 South Main
Street in Trenton. This location is
just south and adjacent to the County
Commission building meeting facil-
ity..
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
made a motion to extend the contract


three years for the Gilchrist Chamber
of Commerce Commissioner and to
add a 60-day clause in the contract to
allow Gilchrist County or the Cham-
ber of Commerce to nullify the con-
tract if needed. If Gilchrist County
does nullify the contract, the county
must provide the Chamber of Com-
merce with another office location.
Commissioner Sharon A Langford
went along with the proposal giving
the second.
Sharon Bard, the President of the
Gilchrist County Chamber of Com-
merce asked the board if the Cham-
ber of Commerce could remain in
their present office space. The motion
allowed the Chamber of Commerce
to remain in their present location.
The County Commission approved
the contract by a 5-0 vote,

The Gilchrist Club in Trenton, a
private hunting and sporting club set
in the heart of Florida's timberland,
will open its doors Sept. 13 from 5:30
to 9:30 p.m. to guests of Fall at the
Lodge, a benefit for Haven Hospice.
"Our members are conservation-
ists who have strong family values,"
said Leiza Fitzgerald, vice president
of membership development for the
club. "Their mission seems an ideal
match for the Haven Hospice mis-
sion, which honors the needs of fami-
lies and celebrates the importance of
living each day to the fullest."
Billed as a country casual evening
featuring food, festivities and mu-
sic, Fall. at the Lodge offers a rare
glimpse of the Gilchrist Club, whose
owners have restored, enhanced
and. preserved the natural, habitat of
23,000 acres' of oak hitimocks, pine
flat' oods and dcp&' 'wetlands
Though secluded, the Gilchrist Club
is committed to being a good neigh-
bor, friend to regional conservation
organizations, and an annual donor of
wild hog, quail and deer meat to the
Gilchrist Wild Beast Feast. As host
of Haven's Fall at the Lodge, suc-
cessor to last year's Fall at the Farm.
the club's members aim to support
an organization that serves the entire
community.
"Many of. us have lost our par-
ents," said Fitzgerald, "and hospice
care played a huge part in helping us
cope with that loss. There was a feel-
ing of peace just because hospice was
there. Haven Hospice has a unique
understanding of what a family goes
through."
'"A number of our members plan
to attend the event and have volun-.
teered to serve as parking valets that
evening," she added. "We all want to
ensure this is a great event for a ter-
rific organization."
Since the owners purchased the
property in 1989, "We've done ev-
erything possible to maintain the nat-
ural beauty of this property," Fitzger-
ald said, noting they have planted
four million trees-mostly long-leaf
pine-and constantly nurtured the
land, reestablishing many of the
natural features that have been lost in
other parts, of Florida. These efforts
have been vital in restoring the natu-
ral habitat and bringing the native
bird population back to respectable
numbers. In addition; the property
features four lakes. Five lodges along
the shoreline of the Suwannee Lake,
each with a large porch, have been
built in tune with nature and with a
respectful nod to the Old, South.
All proceeds from Fall at the
Lodge benefit the many grief support
programs, community outreach and
educational programs Haven Hos-
pice provides. .
Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. The
Rick Gordon Band will play through-
out the evening. Guests have the
option of making reservations for a
guided clay shoot and overnight ac-
commodations in-one of the beauti-
fully appointed lodges, as well as a
breakfast buffet the following morn-
ing. Guided clay shoot groups begin
at 4:45 and end at 7 p.m. (Space is
limited) '
Tickets are $75 per person for Fall
at the Lodge. One night's lodging
and a breakfast buffet for Fall at the
Lodge guests is $250. One-half the
room cost will be donated to Haven
Hospice.
Reservations for Fall at the Lodge,
the guided clay shoot and overnight
accommodations are required. For
tickets, reservations, corporate spon-
sorships or additional information,

On Labor Day 2008 the Gulf coast
from Apalachicola to Houston, Texas
was bracing for the landfall of Hur-
ricane Gustav which came ashore
southwest of New Orleans near Co-
codrie, Louisiana. The once Cat 4
storm that devastated Cuba had been
downgraded to Cat 2 with gusts up to
115 mph when it made landfall dur-
ing midmorning.
Major news media reported the city
of New Orleans was a ghost town
when the height of the storm passed
onshore some 75 miles southwest of
the city. The city officials were pray-
ing and hoping that the multi-billion
dollar level improvements would
hold the estimated 6-12 feet of storm
surge trying to spill over into the low
lying areas.
The area of New Iberia, Morgan
City and other inland communities
have now been impacted by Gustav

As I look out over the Atlantic,
Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico on
Monday morning, this must be the
peak of the tropical storm season.
There was Hurricane Gustav making
its way into Louisiana, while Hurri-
cane Hanna is about to make its way
into the Bahamas Islands. Hanna is
forecast to impact the Bahamas this
week and then turn northwest and be.
offshore along the Florida peninsula
as it moves north in the vicinity of
the Gulf Stream up the coastline to
Georgia and the Carolinas by the end
of the weekend. Tropical Storm Ike
is forecast to move west this week.
Tropical Depression 10 is now mak-
ing its way west of the African coast-
line at less than 10 mph.
The 2008 tropical storm season
will sure be one to remember. This is
the first week in September, and the
horizon appears to be full of tropical
storm possibilities. We all need to be
prepared in case we are threatened or
impacted by a hurricane.


Now ai. 7he,

By Carrie A. Mizell


Webster's Dictionary defines the
word 'patient' as enduring trying
circumstances with an even temper,
without protest, or complaint.
I don't know if the culprit is my
red hair, or my grandmother, Doris
Beauchamp's get-it-done attitude, but
I have a terrible time maintaining an
even temper and practicing patience.
As I sat in Judge Philman's crowd-
ed courtroom last Tuesday night
awaiting the election results and
staring at the clock, I couldn't help
feeling the same agitation that comes
over me when I have to shop at Wal-
Mart. You know the sense of dread
that overtakes you as you wait in
line behind 17 people, each one with
a loaded buggy, in one of only three
check-out lanes open. Each time I si-
lently tell myself that I will not come
back and endure this agony again.
If. Wal-Mart frays my nerves to
such an extent, then you know I was
feeling sympathy for the obviously
exhausted political candidates last
Tuesday night. Most sat silently in
the jury box, their sunburned heads
leaned against the wall awaiting re-
sults from an Election Day that drew
a plethora of candidates for sheriff,
but very few voters to the polls.
On Wednesday many candidates

election results, only to be told after
waiting several hours to come back
on Thursday to learn the totals.
I applaud the canvassing board's
efforts to see that each vote was
counted correctly despite a serious
problem with republican ballots at
two of ten county precincts. I also
understand Supervisor of Elections
Connie Sanchez's concern that citi-
zens may now lack confidence in
her ability to handle the job she was
elected to after such a fiasco with the
primary election.
Choosing to look at the situation
from a patient perspective, I can
only say "thank the Lord" the prob-
lem with republican ballots appeared
in the primary election; if it had to
happen, better last week than in a
general election where we will have
the opportunity to cast a ballot in a
presidential election. I'm sure ev-
eryone remembers the embarrassing
national media attention that befell
Florida during the 2000 presidential
election.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


One of the most often asked ques-
tions is how I go about selecting the
companies that appear in this column.
The hoped-for answer is that I have
an algorithm that spits out "guaran-
teed to win" investment prospects,
analogous to being able to pick a
winning race horse. Having recently
delved into thoroughbred racing part-
nerships, I can see a definite parallel.,
You can collect endless quantities
of data, analyze fundamentals and
employ computer technology to spit
out a never-ending series of projec-
tions. However, until the race is run
and the performance is posted, you
do not know if your selection was
right or wrong. Prior to that point,
subjective human judgment becomes
the deciding factor and must carry
the day.
While computers can run complex
algorithms and analyze reams of data,
compared to the human mind the most
advanced computer is no more pow-
erful than a dim flashlight. Please do
not misunderstand what I am saying.
Modem investment analysis would
be severely set back if it were not for
the ability of computers to carry out
innumerable mathematical tasks on a
repetitive basis. However, after slic-
ing and dicing the data, there is no
substitute for human judgment.
Unfortunately, the human intellect
is not immune to expectations and ex-
pedtations are the "coin of the realm"
on Wall Street. Expectations often
include a large dollop of hope, some
dreaming and maybe a prayer or two.
Yet, it is not until those expectations
are bathed in the harsh light of reality
that we see the true picture of where
we are and how we got there.
Too 'often we try to mold our view
of reality to meet our expectations,'
when we, should be doing exactly the
opposite. The specter of the unknown
can be a driving force that strips away
logic, lowers expectations and cre-
ates bargains for those astute enough
to see through the emotional hysteria
that so often envelops Wall Street.
Consider, for example, Seagate
Technology. A year ago when I dis-
cussed the company, its shares were
selling for $24.50. My fiscal year
GAAP earnings estimate was ,for
$2.05 per share. The company recent-
ly reported $2.36 per share, a number
that included the $113 million amor-
tization of purchased intangibles,
along with restructuring charges of


Consequences Come From Choices
(Kent Heaton)


A consequence is something produced by a cause or a
set of conditions put in motion in our lives. The
consequence of these actions can be productive or
harmful. As with every cause, there is an effect; the
choices we make in life bring consequences. Some of the
consequences of our lives are not of our own doing but the
result of what other events happen that impact our lives. If
our house is destroyed by a tornado, we suffer the
consequence of that which was beyond our control. Many
of the consequences we suffer in life are the result of our
own actions. Of these, some have greater consequence
than others. While working with a hammer, I may hit my
thumb and cause great pain. I have. suffered the
consequence of my own action, and the result is a sore
thumb.
There are consequences that I suffer that are created by
the choices I have made in life. If I have cancer from
using tobacco all my life, the consequences I suffer are
from the choices I made. Unless someone forced me to
.use tobacco. The choice I freely made led to the
consequences of my ill health. If I engage in sexual
immorality, I should expect certain consequences of my
actions. It may be a disease of some type or even the birth
of a child. The key to understanding choice is to know that
I have the power of choosing, and the consequences I may
suffer come from my freedom to make those choices.
Often men seek to deny their responsibility for their
actions. The choices we freely make lead us to harvest a
field of consequences. Paul said, "Do not be deceived,
God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he
will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the


flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will
of the Spirit reap everlasting life" (Galatians 6:7,8). The
choice we make to sow will bring with it the consequence
of harvest.
King David understood the connection between choice
and consequence. He engaged in adultery with Bathsheba
and suffered the consequence of God's punishment upon
him (2 Samuel 11,12). He did not try to blame anyone but
himself when he said, "I have sinned against the Lord"
(12:13). David knew the choices he had made brought
about the consequence he was to suffer. He acknowledges
his sin before God because he knew the choice was his.
Joseph told Potiphar's wife, "How then can I do this great
wickedness, and sin against God" (Genesis 39:9).
Choice brings about consequence. J. T. Smith said,
"Never make a choice you cannot live without the
consequences. The great struggle with men is to have the
courage to admit the consequences of their lives are largely
based upon the choices they have made in life. When we
make bad choices, we should expect bad consequences. If
we make good choices, we can enjoy the bountiful
goodness of blessing.
We enjoy the blessings of God because of the choices
we make. Read Deuteronomy 30 to see how God
illustrates to the children of Israel the importance of
choice. Joshua implored the people to choose wisely in
Joshua 24:15. Paul told Timothy that "godliness is
profitable for all things, having promise of the life that
now is and of that which is to come" (1 Timothy 4:8).
Choosing godliness will bring about a harvest of good
things in this life and the reward of eternal life.

$0.16 per share.
Going forward, Seagate expects to
report first quarter FY 2009 revenues
of between $3.15 and $3.30 billion,
with net income per share of $0.18 to
$0.22. For the year, Seagate is fore-
casting industry revenue growth of
between 10 and 15 percent, which
means its revenue number should
follow suit. Gross margin for the year
is expected to be between 21 and 25
percent.
The earnings and revenues are
there, and yet, the shares traded re-
cently at $15.69. So why has the
share price declined? You can break
the answer down into two parts. On
a macro economic basis, a number of
exogenous variables have driven the
overall stock market lower. This goes
back to what was mentioned earlier
about expectations.
Investors are preoccupied with the
credit markets, a slowing economy,
rising inflation and a .host of other
problems that only indirectly impact
Seagate but are causing investors to
delve into the antacids.
From a micro aspect, Seagate
has stated that its average selling
price has declined somewhat over
the past year and will continue to be
under pressure in its 2009 fiscal year,
thereby putting pressure on its profit
margin. However, keep in mind that
this has already been built into the
company's guidance.
Looking at the company's intrinsic
value, a discounted earnings model
with a 15 percent discount rate and
an earnings growth rate of 9 percent
produces a $41 per share result. The
more conservative free cash flow to
the firm model produces a $43 per
share result.
My earnings estimate for FY 2009
is $2.10 per share and $2.70 for FY

H A LETTER OF THANKS
I would like to thank the citizens of Gilchrist County for
their support and prayers during my recent campaign. Words
alone cannot express my gratitude for your kindness and your
belief in me as a person and law enforcement officer. Your
concerns did not fall on deaf ears and will not be forgotten.
Now that the primary is over, and we did not prevail, I ask each of my support-
ers to actively seek out the best choice out of the three sheriff candidates left in
the race. It is my hope that you will show that candidate the same dedication that
you have shown me.
Having been in a political race for the first time, I have learned many things
about our election process, how candidates win votes and what is important to the
people in our county. I can honestly state "I NEVER MADE AN UNTRUE
STATEMENT TO A SINGLE CITIZEN TO GAIN A SINGLE VOTE" and I take
pride in myself for maintaining my integrity throughout the election.
I would also like to recognize a person in this county who has been behind the
scenes of this sheriff's race, that person is Sheriff David Turner. I learned that
until you have been involved with politics, you really don't get a clear picture of
what our sheriff deals with on a daily basis. NO FAMILY, except SheriffTurner's
family, can comprehend the many days and nights of sacrifice they have made.
NO PERSON, except Sheriff Turner, can attempt to understand the stress he has
endured while carrying the weight of the county on his shoulders, being respon-
sible for the safety of 17,000 people, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the past
12 years. Every citizen should make it a point to call the sheriff and thank him for
his sacrifices, his hard work, and wish him the best upon his retirement. He
earned it...
Last but not least, I would like to thank my wife Susie for her untiring support
during these past months of politics. Her love and support was most important to
me, and I could not have made it through without her.
My plans? To get back to work as a State Trooper and do what I do best, serve
and protect the citizens of our great state. I'm only a phone call away; call me if
you need me.
Charlie

THANK



YOU


I would like to say thank you to all the citizens of our county who opened
their doors to me and my family during my campaign. For the voters
who believed in rne and supported me with their vote; I am sincerely
appreciative. Everyone who has supported me financially, thank you, I
could not have done it without you. A couple of things I take away from
this experience: first, there are wonderful, goodhearted residents who
care and believe passionately about Gilchrist County; second, if you
want or think we need a change in our county politics, we need more
than 25%, of the voters to show up at the polls. The next chance to be
heard is on November 4, 2008. Once again, thank you to all of my sup-
porters.

Sincerely,
Barrett Brown

School PTA to hold
hrst meeting of the
year
The Bell Middle High School PTA
will hold its first monthly meeting of
the year on September 8, 2008. We
will have a very special speaker, Mr.
Rick Reed. That's right. The new
principal at Bell Middle High School.
Mr. Reed taught here several years
ago, he spent time here as an assis-
tant principal and now he comes to us
as the principal. We look forward to
hearing from him.
We will be discussing the upcom-
ing fundraisers. We need all the sup-
port we can get. Our first fundraiser
will be a contest to see which grade
level can get the most members
signed up; the winning grade level
will then receive a snow cone party.
Membership,dues are only $5. One of
our fundraisers has already started; it
is the selling of a coupon book. There
are some terrific deals in this book.
Come to the meeting and get a look at
all the neat stuff that is in the book.
Another topic we will discuss at
the meeting will be about what mer-
chandise to purchase for the upcom-
ing ball season. We will have a table
set up at the home games both Varsity
and Junior Varsity (we hope, it all de-
pends on the volunteers).
The meeting will. be held in the
Media Center at 7 p.m.
Let's kick off the new year on the
right foot. Our goal is to be world
class and one way of accomplishing
that is to have our world-class par-
ents with us.

If you were pulled over for speeding, but before the deputy gave you a ticket he or she
asked if you were republican or democrat, the first thought in your mind would be
"what does that have to do with anything." Your thought would be right, party affilia-
tion has nothing to do with law enforcement or its operations. When you decide on
who to elect as your Sheriff, don't let your party affiliation make this important deci-
sion for you.
My name is Robert E. Willis, and I am a former State Prosecutor, Deputy Sheriff,
Investigator, and Director of Public Safety. I have handled thousands of criminal cases '
ranging from petit theft to murder either as a law enforcement officer or prosecutor.
Not only have I made the arrests on the street, but also prosecuted the case in the
courtroom.
I have a Law degree and a degree in Criminology specializing in Law Enforcement
Administration & Human Resource Management. I've also managed a multi-million
dollar budget and obtained grants for Gilchrist County totaling more than $750,000.00.
I have a proven track record of being able to communicate and work with our County
Commissioners at every level.
I have the education, experience, and common sense to provide you with the highest
level of service at the absolute lowest possible cost. I want to be your next Sheriff, and
if elected, I promiseto give you 100% effort and dedication to combat criminal activity
in our community and protect every citizen. Give me the chance to make the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office the great agency it can become. I am asking for your vote and
support on November 4th.

From the shelves of
the Bell Library
The junior book I reviewed
this week is entitled Look It Up
- Farms by Silver Burdett, a text
book publisher. One fact that in-
terested me is in the dairy section.
To quote, "In the Middle East,
the camel is sometimes used as a
dairy animal as well as a beast of
burden." Milking them by hand is
a tricky job. My husband said the
only way to milk a range cow out
in our western states was to rope
her and tie her down. Seems that
would be a tricky job also.
Berries for the Queen is the be-
ginning reader book I will tell you
about today. It is a book about
patience, like when you mom asks
you to wait in the car while she
runs into the store to pick up a
carton of milk and you don't fuss.
In the book, when the cook did
not have strawberries when the
queen asked for them, the queen

she continued to throw people in
the dungeon, she finally realized
she needed to release those she
had thrown in the dungeon includ-

farmer. She learned to be patient.
The adult book I read this week
is Tribute. Nora Roberts latest
novel. Cilia decided to restore her
grandmother's home which had
been standing empty for about
ten years.' She had been a famous
movie star, but it appeared she had
committed suicide while living in
this in this house. Problems of
many types continued to hold. up
the work. Will Cilla succeed?
The book committee is planning
to order some new junior books,
watch for an announcement that
they have arrived and are ready
for checking out.
Hope to see you at Bell Library

"Do you want to get well?" Seems
an odd question... surely anyone in
his/her right mind who wasn't "well"
would want to be...wouldn't they?
No doubt an out-of-the-ordinary
question, yet the Bible records the
following conversation:
"Now there is in Jerusalem near
the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Ara-
maic is called Bethesda and which is
surrounded by five covered colon-
nades. Here a great number of dis-
abled people used to lie-the blind, the
lame, and the paralyzed. One who
was there had been an invalid for
thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw
him lying there and learned that he
had been in this condition for a long
time, he asked him, "Do you want to
get well?"
"Sir," the invalid replied, "I have
no one to help me into the pool when
the water is stirred. While I am trying
to get in, someone else goes down
ahead of me." Then Jesus said to him,
"Get up! Pick up your mat and walk."
John 5:2-8.
The phrase "want to" has a deeper
intention in the Greek translation than
what we might suppose. It means not
simply wishing for something, but
also taking the next step to press into
action. We might say it like this: "Do
you want to get well bad enough to
do something about it?"
It was commonly believed in Jeru-
salem that an angel would occasion-
ally visit the pool of Bethesda and
stir the waters. When this happened,
the first person to immerse' himself or
herself in the water would be healed
of any infirmity. Instead of answering

Jesus' question, the paralytic blamed,:
his inability to get well on the fact :
that he had no one to help him. Don't ',
we do the same... especially when it :
comes to the health of our relation- ,
ships? We can clearly see that things :
just aren't. working, and yet instead ,
of taking responsibility for our part in .
the problem, we justify doing noth-
ing by blaming it on the behavior of
others: "I wouldn't act like that if she
didn't make me so mad," or "Why:,
should I apologize...it's not all my *
fault!" "
Little do we realize that this atti-
tude will keep us from getting well '
and from making the changes neces- ',
sary to become healthy people who ,
can sustain healthy relationships.
Casting the blame on others may
make us feel better temporarily, but it .
always leaves us with our problems. -
The longer we continue in this pat-,'
tern, the more dangerous it becomes. :
In fact, when Jesus commanded the ,
paralytic to "Get up!" He was actu- '
ally telling him to wake up and be- :
come attentive to his dangerous posi- :
tion. We would be wise to wake up ::
to some issues of our own: anger and ,
controlling issues, lack of self-control ,
and selfish ambitions, just to name a ,
few. The longer we blame conflict
caused by such things on others, the :
less likely we are to take responsi- '
ability for our part, and the more un- '0
healthy our relationships will remain. *-
We would do well to consider Jesus' :
question and decide that our answer :
is yes.. .enough so to takeaction, take ":
responsibility and get well.. .because :,
our hearts matter! "

Bottlebrush (Callistemon), grows to 5 to 10 feet, and has a
bright red bottlebrush-like bloom. Plant in full sun to partial
shade. Bottlebrush varieties include bush form and weeping
varieties.
Duranta Erecta. There are several varieties of Duranta. One
variety is Sapphire Showers, which has small clusters of small
purple flowers and is a very fast grower. Duranta dies back
in late fall and comes back strongly in the spring. The plant
should be heavily mulched and dead growth pruned back when
new growth appears in spring.
Yellow Bells (Tecoma Stans) is an everblooming shrubby
vine-like plant with loads of bright yellow bell-shaped flowers.
Care is the same as the Duranta.
Orange Jubilee (TecomaStans), produces racemes of orange
bell-shaped flowers and has similar care as Yellow Bells and
Duranta.
Fertilize all of these plants when new growth appears in
spring and again in mid-summer. An occasional pruning is all
that is needed to prevent the plant from becoming leggy.
