Bear Bryant Im sure most everyone is gearing up for the big Super Bowl game on Sunday evening. One thing about the South, we do love our football and good food. With all the pre-game shows, hours and hours of them, it gives us lots of time to munch on chips and salsa, and all manner of game day favorites. I was reading an ESPN football article by Rick Bragg, (I do love to read anything by Rick Bragg), entitled, Down here, to understand have to see it from the inside. In the article Bragg recounts a television interview between the famous, much loved Alabama Coach Bear Bryant and one of his friends. Bragg wrote, after a rare Alabama loss in the Bryant era, Bears sidekick on his weekly television show told him: The Lord just wasnt with us, Coach. The Lord, growled Bryant, expects you to block and tackle. Im sharing a couple of recipes that day spread. Enjoy the Super Bowl! Super Bowl Poppers 15 whole fresh jalapenos 8 ounces cream cheese 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese 1 teaspoon cumin, optional 1 pound thin smoked bacon Cut pepper in half and scoop out seeds, beat cream cheese until light cumin. Fill boat shaped peppers with in half. Wrap each pepper with bacon, secure the bacon with toothpick. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. You may have to turn broiler on to brown. Just a tip, I read that jalapenos with striations or scarring on the skin are hotter than smooth skinned jalapenos. Easy Old Bay Chicken Wings 3 pounds chicken wings 1 stick butter 1 tablespoon Old Bay 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon lemon juice First thing, check the date on the bottom of your Old Bay can to make sure it is fresh, you may need to buy a new can. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Allow the wings to come to room temperature and cut the wings apart, throw away the little tip part of wing. Pat wings dry and put them into a bowl. Melt butter in sauce pan and whisk in the Old Bay, black pepper and lemon juice. Pour half the sauce over chicken wings and toss. Spread wings out on lined pan. Bake 25 minutes. Remove wings from oven and turn over. Turn the oven on broil and broil wings 3 to 4 minutes until browned. Watch closely to make sure they dont burn. Remove wings and toss in Old Bay sauce, and serve them hot. I would like to express how proud I am of Sheriff Bobby Schultz and his staff. The funeral service for Captain Tony Cruse of the Gilchrist County with the greatest care and respect. Sheriff Schultz, along with the other Roberts Funeral home, and the minister worked diligently to ensure the funeral service for a brave, was conducted with the utmost professionalism. It was evident by the turn out at Captain Tony Cruses funeral he was loved and respected by many. I personally have never met a more brave, kind, and humble man. Our sheriff recognized these attributes in Tony Cruse and felt he deserved the best. Sheriff Schultz utilized the professional relationship with other agencies to ensure Captain Cruse was buried with full honors for his years of service as a law blessed to have Tony Cruse to help serve and protect the citizens, and we are blessed to have Sheriff Bobby Schultz as well.

I prayed so hard for my little boy. Certainly harder than Ive prayed for anything in my life. I asked God over and over again for a healthy baby boy and held my breath for a solid 10 months back in 2011. God was faith ful and blessed us with Whitt. Now that my baby is a 2-year-old, my husband Adam and I joke that I might should have asked God for Whitt to be not only healthy, but also good You see, hes a bit of a rascal. That is said in love by a mama who is just crazy about him, but its the hon est to goodness truth. He is Dennis the comic strip. Every. Single. Day. And to be perfectly honest, Im not sure Paul wasnt telling a story when he wrote in Corinthians that God wouldnt give me more than I can handle. At least thats what I thought earli er this week when the new chiroprac tor I have had to start visiting told me that the x-ray of my neck showed Ive been handling more than I should. Ummmm, does it look like a 2a split-open eyebrow in the church nursery that is gushing blood and thats what Im handling these days. Recognizing that he is the end of the line so to speak at our house, Ive tried to dress Whitt like a baby for as long as I could. When in fact, he just wants to wear jeans and a tshirt and play in the dirt with trac tors. Adam drew the line on smocked shouldnt have come as a shock on Saturday when I returned home from shopping with the sweetest match Whitt only to hear Adam say, hes That rough and rowdy boy. Not a 2. Sign him up, Coach Thomas!

A familiar quote, and one that we either say aloud or at least think from time to time when we would rather not be responsible for another person. Still, it is a strange comment when we remember that these words originated from the (See Genesis 4:1-10) Killing someone is not the way to avoid taking responsibility for them-in fact, it does just the opposite. Cain was the way! We dont have to go as far as murder to realize that sin always causes us to blur the lines of responsibility in relationships. Jesus addressed this issue of responsibility to others in Matthew 5:21-24: You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment. But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. The beginning of this scripture seems to easily apply to the reader: God measures certain anger the same as murder. The anger this verse speaks of is unresolved anger, better known as unforgiveness. Unforgiveness subjects us to the consequences of bitterness, rage and we go to offer our gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, we are to go to him and attempt reconciliation. Arent we convinced that if someone has a problem with us, it is their problem? Certain of this, we ignore our spouses coolness toward us or the fact that a friend or family member is avoiding us, convincing ourselves we have done nothing wrong. However, this ministry of reconciliation is so important to God, He wants us to tend to this even before we show up to worship! If we took this instruction seriously, what impact would it have on our marriages? Friendships? Family relationships? Work relationships? God is calling us to take responsibility to help heal broken relationships no matter which side we are on, because our hearts really do matter! The Lighthouse Word Church will be hosting a Ladies Fellowship Meeting on Friday, Jan. 31, at 6:30 p.m. We will begin with snacks and then at 7:30 p.m., we will move into a time of worship and ministry. Ladies, if you need a special touch from God, then this is the service for you! A nursery will be provided. For more information please call (352) 493-1554.

Leggett Property Appraiser -Gilchrist County 112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693 (352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208 Additional Homestead Exemption How does the "double homestead" work? The existing homestead exemption typically reduces the assessed value of a property used as a primary residence by a Florida resident by $25,000. This would provide an additional homestead exemption up to $25,000, on the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. For example, if your assessment is $65,000, the first $25,000 and that portion above $50,000 ($15,000) would be exempt, making your taxable value $25,000 (65,000-25,000-15,000). Prior to new law, the taxable value would have been $40,000 (65,000-25,000). This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed value upon which school taxes are based. Also, it does not reduce or otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp tions. It is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you have the Homestead Exemption already. SMITH SALES & SERVICES, INC. HEAT & AIR ONE CALL DOES IT ALL!
