Prior to his death, Kerr said he was so proud to have served the City and he felt like the city council had accomplished a lot.

Love ya, Granny Heart MattersBy Angie Land Meanwhile Boaz went up to the town gate and sat there. When the kinsman-redeemer he had mentioned came along, Boaz said, Come over here, my friend and sit down. So he went over and sat down. Boaz took ten of the elders of the town and said, Sit here, and they did so. Then he said to the kinsman-redeemer, Naomi, who has come back from Moab, is selling the piece of land that belonged to our brother Elimelech. I thought I should bring the matter to your attention and suggest that you buy it in the presence of these seated here and in the presence of the elders of my people. If you will redeem it, do so. But if you will not, tell me, so I will know. For no one has the right to do it except you, and I am next in line. I will redeem it, he said. Then Boaz said, On the day you buy the land from Naomi and from Ruth the Moabitess, you acquire the dead mans widow, in order to maintain the dead with his property. At this the kinsman-redeemer said, Then I cannot redeem it because it might endanger my own estate. You redeem it yourself. I cannot do it. (Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method for legalizing transactions in Israel.) So the kinsman-redeemer said to Boaz. Buy it yourself. And he removed his sandal. (Ruth 4:1-8) Chalk it up to my love of multitasking, (dont you just love that rare day when you get to check off everything on your list?) but I really like the word meanwhile, especially when it gets used like this: My dinner up the laundry. Meanwhile literally means at the same time. Chapter four begins by telling us that while Ruth was at home feeling very concerned and probably confused about what was happening, Boaz was in town getting the matter settled, just like Naomi assured her that he would. Like a man on a mission, Boaz gets waits for the nearer kinsman-redeemer at the city gate where all legal transactions were settled, the equivalent of our courtroom. Once he is in place, ten elders were gathered and then the case was opened. The details get a bit confusing in our English translation, but remember that property wasnt actually bought and sold in the way that we understand today. Through his inheritance, Naomis husband, Elimelech had rights to a parcel of land that was forfeited when the family left Bethlehem to go to Moab. What Boaz is presenting to the closest kinsman is the opportunity to buy back the property for Naomis family, herself and Ruth, not from them. This appeared to be agreeable until he understood the strings attached, the widow, along with the responsibility to maintain her dead husbands name. Isnt Boaz playing it cool? No doubt his heart is beating double time, hoping that he gets to be the one to redeem the property and get the girl! Did you notice how he throws in the fact that Ruth is a Moabitess (one of them foreigners!) and a dead mans widow? I mean are there any other kind? It sure seems like Boaz was trying to make the deal sound as least appealing as possible, whether it was those small details or not, Boazs strategy works and the offer was refused! One last thought, while Im so glad that everything works out for Boaz to redeem the property and marry Ruth, I cant help but feel a bit sorry for that other relative. For heavens sake, what if he was wearing his favorite pair of shoes? And I just have to wonder, did they have a shoe store in Bethlehem where you could buy just one in cases like this? Just goes to show, you never know what might be going on meanwhile. By Norm Conti AARP will hold its regular monthly meeting on December 17, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., at the Lodge of Otter Springs. Its December already, what a fast year, so I guess it must be true that the older you get, the faster the years go by. The good thing about December is that Santa comes to visit all of the good girls and boys, and seniors, too. Rumor has it that our guest speaker will be Charles Corley, secretary of the Department of Elder Affairs. I have not received his schedule yet for his visit to Gilchrist County. We will also be entertained by John Arthur, a Christian singer whom I have heard many times. Program Chairwoman Janice Rogers, has done an excellent job this year, and Im sure that shell do an even better job next year. Our Hospitality Chairwoman Faye supplied us with some excellent meals, and Im looking forward to the ham that she is preparing for our Christmas meal. Please bring vegetables, drinks, and desserts to round out our buf fet table.  As for me, this will be the last article I will be writing. I am also giving up my position as community activities coordinator. I am turning over my duties at AARP after 14 years of continuous service. Richard Esseck will be assuming my duties for the chapter as of January 1, 2014. I would like to thank all of the have supported me through these years.   I am sure that the new board support them, as you have supported me. See you at the meeting with Cans in Hand.AARP will meet Dec. 17 Thanks to everyone for electing me to serve as your Bell Town Council Member in Group 1.

The Florida 1A panhandle powerhouse had not played a 1A football team from the toughest districts in 1A in Central Florida. Blountstown doesnt play the opponents that we have played this season, Andrew Thomas, THS head coach explained. The Blountstown Tigers were undefeated and much bigger than the visiting Trenton Tigers, but it was Trentons T.H.D., toughness, hard work and determination, to go along with their speed and willingness to win, that gave them the ability to ball championship.

B-town was facing a 3rd and 13 from their 32-yard line when Hunter was forced to throw for the picked off a Tiger pass and returned it 35 yards for a score.

Trentons #66, Josh Mathis, runs down B-towns #22, Alex Mayorga, and the Tigers #6, Asa Marangoni, comes in to assist on this tackle. Andrew ThomasThis season has been about growth, from beown identity after we lost six starters last year. Three of those six starters were All State players. This season we had a huge class, with nine seniors on the team, and throughout the season the team got bigger and stronger. Our ultimate goal was state, but we had to take it step-bystep. No one expected a football state championship win out of Trenton, but we raised the bar and the kids met it this year. They committed and worked hard to earn a state championship win. The whole defensive line dominated Blountstown on Friday night and they controlled the game. Im glad that the community can now see what all the work and talk was about. Were giving it back to them in 2013 with state championship titles in baseball and football. Thats pretty impressive! Stephen Smith looks at his receiver, who is also his brother, #7, Michael Smith as he watches for the pass.
