more and more people are paintiilg, piercing and
plastering their bodies from head to toe in a most unusual
manner. Colors of hair will range from one end~ of the
rainbow to the other and in just about any fashion known
to man. Tattooing is a multimillion dollar business along
with body piercing parlors filling city streets,
Does the Bible define any of these actions as sinful? First
we must remember what defines sin. Paul said, "Ixwould
not have known sin except throcghi the law. For I would
not have known covetoursness unless the~ law had said,
'You shall not. covet"' (Romans 7:7). The writer John
explained sin as the one who "commlits sin also conunits
lawlessnress, and sin is lawlessness" (1 John 3:4). God the
Father is the one who wrote the law and if God says that
changing apearan~ce by piercing and coloring is sin then
The Bible does have passages that speak of body piercing
and tattobs. In the 'Law of Moses it says, "You shall not
make any cuttinlgs in your flesht for the dead, nor tattoo
any marks on you: I am thre Lord ... They shall not nmke
any bald place on their heads, nor shall threy shave rthe
edges of their beards nor make any cuttinrgs in their flesh
... You are th~e children of the LORD your God; you
shall not cut yourselves nor shave th~efront of your head
for the dead" (Leviticus 19:28; 21:5; Deuteronomny 14:1).
The practice of cutting the flesh is seen in the prophets of
Baal in 1 Kings 18:28
Beyond these passages and references to other aspects of
piercing and cutting the Bible is silent. Often the passages
of Leviticus, and Deuteronomy are used to prove that
tattooing and piercing are sinful. However, this is based on
as much authority as using instruments of music in
worship or making sacrifices at the Temple which ulnder
the law of Christ there is none.
In the passage of Leviticus 19 it is also commanded "You
shall not shave around thre sides of your head, nor shall

you disfigurre thte edges of your beard" (Leviticus 19:27).
Do we sin when we get a close haircut or trim our.beards?
Th~e above mentioned laws pertained to the nation of Israel
alone~and viere abolished under the law of Christ. Beyond
those few references nothing is said in Scripture that
tattooing, piercing or coloring the hair is a sin.
The Christian does live' to a different standard than the
world. Many of the attributes of the world have fotmd
place among Christians. We are to be separate from the
world'in every way and not to be "yoked together" with
the practices of the worldly and fleshly nature (2
Cormnthians 6:1'1-7:1). Will tattooing, piercing and coloring
the hair seventy shades of pink and purple glorify God or
Christ? Painting a picture of Jesus on your arm or leg is not
where He wants to be He wants your heart!
Peter's admonition to women in 1 Peter 3 is not about the
lack of clothing but the attention women seek to bring to
themselves by their jewelry, make-up, clothing, hair styles
adhseunch 1h ti ei tt attention women seek tahbrin
of God is not the outward adorning but the "hriddlen person
of thre hreart, with thre intcorrurptible ornamrent of a gentle
and quiet spirit, whrichr is very precious id' thre sight of
God" (1 Peter 3:3-4).
If you want to pierce something, pierce the heart (Acts
2:27; Romans 6:17). Tattoo the love of God in your mind
(Romans 12:2). Our physical bodies are the temple of God
and should be glorified for that purpose not the
glorification of the world. "Or do you ntot know thant your
body is thre temple of the Holy Spirit whoe is inr youe, whrom
you have fromt God, arnd you are not your own?' For you
wuere bought at a price; therefore glorify God inl your
body and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Corinthians
6:19-20). "I beseechr youe therefore, brethren, by, thre
mrercies of God, thant your present your bodies a living
sacrifice, htoly, acceptable to God, whlichr is your
r~easornable service; And do not be contforrmed to thris
wuorldl, but be tranrsformred by thre renew(ingi of yourr mirnd,

THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2012 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL; -
BES student donates to oLoc of Love ~
My name is Crystal Jones. I am a
Republican candidate for the Gilchrist
'Cou~nty Clerk of Court. I have been 4
married to Grady Jones Jr. for 10 years,
together we have two children. I am a
native and part ofthe future generation of
Gilchrist Counity. I am a graduate of Bell
High School and Santa.Fe College with
~my AA~ and AS degree. ;All with honors. I believe in
conservative C~hristian values'. I believe in small government
and being self supportive. Below are some motives that have
inspired me to run for this. office:
1. ~The future of Gilchrist Coi~mty: I want to uphold the legacy
of hardwork arid- determination ~in this cou~nty.
2. The taxpayers' dollar: Our tax doflars need' to be spent:.
.wisely, effectively, efficiently, and Isparingly. -I will be a good
steward of the taxpayers' dollilr.
3. Working for the people: I consider my campaign to be an
interview with the citizens of Gilchrist County. It's so easy for
our elected officials to,fall into a rut and forget who they work
folr I will not forget who I serve and who my boss is!
4. Common Sense: T~he definition of common sense is sound
and prudent judgment based on a situation or facts. We need to
imply more common sense back into our decision making.
5. Leadership: I will uIphold the standard of leadership and
provide accomp.Ilishment to adl aspects of the clerk's office. I will
work tirelessly ~to ensure and manage ~a budget ~that will be
beneficial to the employees and,taxpayers of Gilchrist County.
I will stand firm on iny integrity' no matter which way the wind
blows. If you're looking for someone that iSnot a politician~ and '
knows the value of~not onlyr HARD~ work, but SMART work in .
office.. Then I respectively ask for jrour support as I step up anid
for-ward: with mhy very first political campaign.

Bell Elementary School student
Hiaylee Johnson recently donated her
hair to "Locks of Love." A second
grade student at BES, Haylee got the
idea from her older sister Katie, who
donated 16 inches of her hair. .
A Anon-profit organization, Locks of
Love, provides hairpieces to children
in need in the.United States and Can-
ada who are suffering from long-term
hair loss. Most of the children helped
by Locks of Love have lost their hair
due to a medical condition called
alopecia areata, which has nlo known
cause or cure. According to the Locks
of Love website, the hairpieces help
restore self-esteem and confidei~ce in
children, enabling then to face~the
world and their peers.
"We were very, proud of Haylee's
willingness to donate to such a worth
cause," ~said Sherry Lmidsey, princi-
pal at B;ES.

A RESOLUTION OF THE
BOARD OF COUNjTY COM-
MISSIONERS OF GELCHRIST
STRONGLY OPPOSING ADOP-
TION OF THE MEDICAID
COST SHIFT LEGISLATION;
TNDPROVIDING OR TRANS
WT REAS, the Medicaid Cost Shift
legislation, (SB 1988 and HB .5301)
would unfairly and without justification
shift $150 million to county taxpayers;
WHEREAS, the Medicaid Cost Shift
legislation adds yet another layer of bu-
reaucracy to an already-flawed system;
WHEREAS, the legislation would add
the D~epartment of Revenue as an addi-
tional participant in the current system
which already inclixdes the Department
of Children and Families, The Agency for
Healthcare Administration, and 67 coun-
ty governments, and would thereby make
worse the inefficiencies that already exist
in the Medicaid billing system; and
WHEREAS, sirice the launch of the
Agency for Health Care Administration's
new computer system in 2008, billings
have been- consistently wrong with is-
sues like incorrei-t address information,
,double billings, an~d estimated invoices
rather than actual invoices; and
WHEREAS, Gilchrist and other court-
ties have been entirely justified in dispilt-
ing many of these bills and refusing to use
local taxpayer dollars to pay them; and
WHEREAS, the .billing problems
and county objections have resulted in a
backlog of disputed and upaid bills, and
Sa complete lack of trust for a very flawed
WHiEREAS, the legislation would re-
quire that Gilchrist County use local tax-
payer funds to pay for Medicaid services
not provided to Gilchrist County resi-
dents, with no guarantee that there would
be a refund for such payments; and-
WHEREAS, the estimated cost to
Gilchrist County for disputed billings
in the backlog is over $350,000, which
if paid in full .by the County would, in
Sconjuction with increased billings in the
future, have a severe impact on the Coun-
ty's ability to provide needed servideito.
its residents; and ;
,WHEREAS, such unfair and unwar-
ranted financial burdens shifted to coun-
ties severely erode the home rule author-
ity of counties' and make it ever more.
difficult for counties to provide the basic
governmental services demanded by the
citizens of the State of Florida.
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT ~RE-
SOLVED BY THE BOARD OF
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF
GELCHRIST COUNTY, FLORIDA:
SECTIQN 1. The Board of County
Commissioners of Gil'christ County here-
by strongly opposes the adoption of the
Medicaid Cost Shift Legislation by the
Florida Legislature, and urges the leg-
islative delegation for Gilchrist -County
to vote against this harmful and unfair
legislation. In the event the legislation
is passed by the Legislature, the County
Commission strongly urges the Governor
to veto it. `
.SECTION 2. The County Administra-
tor is hereby directed to forward a copy of
this resolution to the Honorable Governor
Rick Scott; State Senate President Mike
Haridopolos; Speaker of the House, Rep-
resentative Dean Cannon; the Gilchrist

Maryann Poitevint of North Gil-
christ C'ounty asked if all of the water
management districts in Flonida abide
by the same rules.
Houder explained that Florida:
Statutes Chapter 373 require the~ wa-
ter management districts to follow
certain guidelines and the rules are
enforced by the Florida Department:
of Environmental Protection and the
Governor of Florida.
Commissioner Randy Durden ex-
plained how hard it is for the Gil-
christ County commissioners to ex-
plain to people in Gilchrist County
that the SRWMD recommends -the
county deny a business from coming
into the county, even though it would
provide an economic boost, because
the district reports it does not have
the water reserve capacity to permit
a withdrawal application. "Theli the
district approves so many more large
capacity water withdrawal permits
that far exceed the capacity of the
business that would have~provided
jobs and increased the tax base in
Gilchrist County," Commissioner
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
asked the water management officials
if the drought continues, will agricul-
ture be affected. "Will farmers be
subject to restrictions for the use of
watering their crops once or twice a
week?" Thomas asked.
Houder said that the drought has
not gotten to the level that the district
has to impose restrictions on water
for the use of irrigating crops.
future water rules are now open.
Houder explained that the water
management district has established

Commissioner Langford asked
if there were discussions between
SRWMD and SJRWMD involving
the water resources of both districts

thority water withdrawal permit was
granted for over 30 million gallons
of water a day. Houder reported that
there were not any direct communi-
cations with St Johns River involving
the permit application before it was
Frank Cunningham, a resident of
Gilchrist County explained that he
has been ivaiting five years for up-
dates on the minimum flows and lev-
els data, involving the extreme dry
conditions in North Florida, but the
water management districts continue
to approve water permits for large ir-
rigation withdrawals at a record rate.
Houder explained that the SRW-
MD is in the final stages of an update
, involving the minimum flowts and
levels and is striving to complete this
information and present this data mna
finished form as soon as possible.
"We are in a pretty severe drought
that can be changed when weather
conditions return to our normal cy-
cles," Houder explained.
Several commissioners asked the
assistant executive director just how
many irnigatioli permits the SRWMD
has approved for this area, most re-
cently. Commissioner Harnison ex-
plained that he was told between .50
and 60 permits for irrigation have
been approved in Gilchrist County.
"'We have seen an unprecedented
number of applications for agricul-
ture water withdrawal permits in
Gilchrist County at the Suwannee
River WC1ater Management District,"
