Once again, it's up to the voters

Special election March 8 to decide cardroom issue at new Jai Alai fronton


Melody Lee
Jasper News
The issues swirling
around Hamilton Coun-
ty's most controversial
subject in recent years
will once again be put be-
fore the people in a spe-


cial election Tuesday,
March 8.
The public referendum
next week will determine
whether or not a card-
room gaming license will
be forthcoming in the Jai
Alai fronton presently un-
der construction in
Hamilton County. The


proposed sports complex,
due to be completed in
late June of this year, is lo-
cated a quarter-mile south
of 1-75 interchange 451 on
US Hwy 129 in Jasper.
It's been a see-saw ride
for Richmond Entertain-
ment CEO and developer
Glenn Richards. The vot-

ing score card is 50/50
concerning the fronton fa-
cility a public "yes" vote,
a pair of County Commis-
sioner "no" votes, and a
commission "yes" deci-
sion. Now the residents,
voters, and taxpayers will
again have their chance to
weigh-in on the matter at
the polls on Tuesday.
Will a card-
room facil-
ity be in-
cluded at
the Jai Alai
fronton -
Yes? or No?
With a
county wide
election in '03, the
voters initially ap- .


proved the is-
suance of a license to
Richmond Entertainment
by the State of Florida to
conduct pari-mutuel wa-
gering in conjunction with
Jai Alai play. A ballot dif-
ference of over 800 votes
supported the wagering


license in that Oct. elec-
tion. The people had
made their choice.
Next up, the Board of
County Commissioners.
The Board had to approve
or reject a cardroom ap-
plication submitted by
Richmond Entertainment.
By a 3-2 vote in Nov. of
'04, the commission made

their choice "No" to the
cardroom.
The cardroom was
brought again before the
Board in Jan. of '05. The
result, a duplicate of the
previous request applica-
tion "No" to the card-


room.
In a slight deviation, but
with a similar 3-2 vote,
the Board then decided to
allow the issue to be put
to public referendum.
Hence the March 8 special
election, with the sole
purpose to either approve
or reject a cardroom at the
Jai Alai fronton. Accord-
.ing to Florida statute,
the outcome
of Tuesday's
election will
be binding
on the Board.
Also, in ac-
cordance with
estate statute,
the complete finan-
Ell cial burden to con-
duct the election is
the sole responsibility of
Richmond Entertainment,
as was the case of the 2003
election.
According to Richards,

Registration ongoing


for USDA Tree


Assistance Program


Agricultural landowners
in need of financial relief
for trees, bushes, vines, and
forest land damaged by
natural disasters that oc-
curred between Dec. 1,
2003, and Dec. 31, 2004,
have a new option for help
through the USDA's Tree
Assistance Program (TAP).
Funding for TAP was au-
thorized by the Military
Construction and Emer-
gency Hurricane Supple-
mental Appropriations Act
2005, and signed into law-
by President Bush last Oc-
tober.
The legislation provides
more than $3 billion in re-
lief to farmers, ranchers,
foresters and other agricul-
tural producers who suf-
fered damage due to severe
weather in recent years.
TAP is the first of several
programs to be launched in
2005 to help producers re-
cover from natural disas-
ters that ocurred in. 2003.
and 2004.
The sign-up period for
General TAP, TAP-Timber,
and TAP-Pecans began Feb.
7 and will end either on
March 18, or 14 calendar
days after the Federal Reg-
ister Notice is published.
Owners of eligible trees,


bushes and vines from
which an annual crop is
produced for commercial
purposes, eligible forest
land owners who produce
crops of timber for com-
mercial purposes, and eligi-
ble pecan producers may
receive assistance under
TAP.
SProducers who received
payments under Section 32
of the Act of August 24,
1935, for 2004 hurricane
losses, or the Florida Citrus
Disaster Program (funded
by the same Act), are ineli-
gible to receive benefits un-
der the general TAP and for
forest timber. However,
producers may receive both
Section 32 payments and
TAP payments for pecan
rehabilitation. In addition,
producers are ineligible for
both Emergency Conserva-
tion Program and TAP as-
sistance for the same losses.
Interested producers
should contact the local
Farm Service Agency office
located at 1628 NW US
Highway 41 in Jasper or
call 792-1308 for more infor-
mation or to sign-up for the
TAP program. More infor-
mation on TAP is also
available on the USDA web
site at www.usda.gov.


USDA sign up for


tobacco buyout


begins March 14


The sign-up period for
the Tobacco Transition
Payment Program (TTPP)
will begin March 14 and
extend through June 17.
The TTPP will end the
decades old tobacco mar-
keting quotas and provide
transition payments over a
10-year period. All tobacco
quota holders and produc-
ers are urged to visit their
local USDA Service Center
and sign up for these bene-
fits.
Growers who were quo-
ta holders or producers
will need to contact their
local Farm Service Agency
as soon as possible if they
want to be paid as stated in
the tobacco buyout legisla-
tion. If quota holders or
producers have interests in
farms in more than one
county, contracts for each
of these farms must be en-
tered into in the appropri-
ate USDA Service Center.
Prior to sign-up, all
known quota holders
and/or producers will re-
ceive a letter providing
more detailed information
on the program. The letter
will also include Farm Ser-
vice Agency records of
poundage of Basic Quota
Levels for individual quota
holders and/or producers.
If the information is inac-
curate or incomplete, quo-
ta holders and/or produc-
ers are requested to pro-
vide verifiable information
to their USDA Service Cen-
ter personnel at sign-up.


The regulations concern-
ing payments to quota
holders and producers for
this program will be avail-
able in March. The act also
authorized USDA to use a
financial institution to help
carry out the program pro-
visions.
'USDA awarded a con-
tract to Wachovia Corpora-
tion to help conduct an in-
formation campaign to en-
sure that all potential bene-
ficiaries are made aware of
the program and proce-
dures. The campaign in-
cludes sending letters to
every quota holder and
producer who participates
in the program. Particular
emphasis is being placed
upon efforts to contact
small and minority pro-
ducers.
Wachovia also will place
magazine and newspaper
ads, radio spots, and televi-
sion ads in rural and agri-
cultural media; and pro-
vide informational
brochures at key gathering
places. Town hall meetings
will also be hosted in key
tobacco-growing states and
a toll-free call center will go
into service March 1.

Service
Center at 792-1308 the

the 33-acre fronton facility, will provide
additional year-round employment at the
complex after completion of the Jai Alai
playing circuit. Jai Alai play is currently
underway at the fronton in Orlando and
will conclude the end of March. Competi-
tion then continues at the fronton off 1-75
in Ocala and will move on to Hamilton
County the beginning of July when the lo-
cal facility is completed.
The developer estimates a staff of well
over 100 employees will be required to op-
erate the fronton and its related activities.
Richards noted, "The inclusion of the card-
room facility at the fronton will provide
additional annual employment to approxi-
mately 90 more workers."
The lingering issue began in '03, is still
alive in '05, and may impact the commu-
nity for many more years to come. The
people have the responsibility to vote for
or against when they go to the polls on
Tuesday.

Spiritual

Guidance
By Pastor Billy Evans Harvest Fellowship Church

Does morality depend on God?


Have you ever considered
the basis for morality? What
is it that makes "right" right
and "wrong" wrong? Is
morality merely a "relative"
matter; something to be de-
cided by "the will of the
people"? Or, is it founded
upon something much
deeper?
In a secular society, where
anything goes, the idea of
moral absolutes is not a pop-
ular concept. Even within
the church, morality is often
an area of dispute. For ex-
ample, take the current on-
going debate here in our
own county over the moral-
ity of gambling. Where do
the Christians of Hamilton
County stand on this issue?
Are all in agreement? Or,
perhaps an even greater
question would be: Where
does God stand on this, or
any other moral issue, and
what is the basis for His
stance?
In considering God and
His relation to morality, the
question has been asked,
"Did God give the Ten
Commandments because
they are right, or are the Ten
Commandments right be-
cause God gave them?"
Such a question naturally
arises when we consider the
basis of true morality. And
the importance of such a
question is seen when we
consider that how we an-
swer it says much about our
perception of the character
of God. Allow me to ex-
plain.
The world is full of people
who think that God is self-
ish. They perceive His laws
to be nothing more than the
arbitrary precepts of an om-
nipotent tyrant who wants
to take away all' our fun.
Somehow, they have accept-
ed the notion that God sim-
ply invents right and wrong
at His own discretion, and
then imposes His unreason-
able dictates upon His help-
less subjects. To these, God's
laws are "right" only be-

cause He declares them to


be.
But if this view of God
and His law is true, then
how can we really say that
God is good? By what stan-
dard can we measure His
laws if everything He com-
mands is right simply be-
cause it is He that com-
mands it? Think about it, are
things such as murder, steal-
ing, and adultery wrong
only because God declares
them to be?
Also, if this view of God
and morality is true, then
could God not, simply on a
whim, declare wrong to be
holy and right to be sin? For
example, could He not de-
clare lying to be righteous
and honesty to be sinful? Or
perhaps, declare love to be
evil and hatred to be good?
Do you see how this view of
God and morality does
great damage to God's holy
character? It actually makes
God out to be nothing more
than a cosmic dictator.
Thankfully, careful study
of the Bible reveals that the
character of God is quite
contrary to this distorted
view. Within its pages, we
find that right and wrong
are not relegated to God's
arbitrary will, but rather that
His commandments are
based upon what His infi-
nite Mind knows to be most
wise and best for all. Far
from being a moral dictator,
God unselfishly submits to
the same law that He com-
mands us to live by. When
God commands us to be
holy, it is because He is holy,
and He knows that this is
what is best for all, includ-
ing Himself.
This, however, is not to
say that there is a law or
standard greater than God;
for there is nothing greater
than the Almighty, Uncreat-
ed One. But, it is to say that
there is a law that is distinct
from God's will, yet is not
separate from Him. It is a
law that is as eternal as God
Himself. It has existed as
long as God has existed. It is


the basis of all morality, and
it is the standard to which
all moral beings in the uni-
verse must conform, includ-
ing God. It is the law of
God's own uncreated Being
- the law of love.
When God commands us
to not steal or lie, He does so
because this is what His infi-
nite intelligence perceives to
be right and best for all.
God's Ten Commandments
are really only descriptions
of moral reality, just as His
scientific laws are descrip-
tions of physical reality. For
example, take the law of
gravity; here we have a sci-
entific law which states that
"if thou jumpest off a ten
story building (without a
parachute, of course), thou
shalt be paste." So likewise,
in the moral realm we find a
law which states that "the
soul that sins shall surely
die" (Ezk. 18:20). Both are
simply God-given state-
ments of truth descriptions
of reality.
In conclusion, I think it
should be obvious that
morality does depend upon
God. How can we suppose
that morality can be created
or "made up" when its very
basis is God's own uncreat-
ed Being? God is the source
of true morality; not in any
arbitrary sense, but in the
sense that He is the wisest
and most loving Being in the
universe, and He knows
(and is doing) what is best
for everyone. That's why, in
matters of morality, we need
God; for we are finite, and as
such, we are not always able
to discern what is truly right
and best. Our knowledge is
limited, and sometimes our
motives are not what they
ought to be either. However,
in God, we have an infinite
Friend who knows the an-
swer to any moral dilemma
that we could ever face, and
He has promised to show us
what we need to know in or-
der to live happy and mean-
ingful lives.
So in light of all of this, I
suggest that in these times
of moral darkness, we look
to our Heavenly Father to be
our Guiding Light; for we
have His promise: "The
meek He will guide in judg-
ment: and the meek will He
teach His ways" (Ps. 25:9).
God bless.

White Springs


J By Johnny Bullard


As the month of Febru-
ary comes to a close and
we enter the month of
March, we think of the
"old saying," "In like a
lamb and out like a lion,
or, in like a lion and out
like a lamb." March is the
month for flying kites,
wearing green on St.
Patrick's Day, and the be-
ginning of spring. This
March, Easter "falls" on
Sunday, March 27.
Don't forget the annual
Wild Azalea Festival in
White Springs on Satur-
day, March 19. The "do-
ings" begin around 9 a.m.
and last through the day.
For more information
about the Wild Azalea
Festival, call the Nature
and Heritage Tourism
Center at 397-4461.
White Springs extends
its sympathy to the family
. of Mr. Herbert Hogan. A
longtime Hamilton Coun-
ty resident, Mr. Hogan
resided for a good portion
of his life north of Bel-
mont off the Woodpecker
Route, near the intersec-
tion of CR 135 and CR 6.
The family has the
prayers of this communi-
ty.
Mildred Floyd, as al-
ways, has some beautiful
tulips growing in the
wooden planters in front
of .her home on River
Street. She lives next door
to the Telford Hotel. This
year her tulips are kind of
a dusty rose color, and
they are lovely. We wish
Mrs. Floyd a Happy Belat-
ed Birthday, as her birth-
day was on March 1.
'Our newDollar General
Store has opened in White
Springs, and we are so


very grateful for this
store. Many thanks to Mr.
Glenn Richards or Rich-
mond Entertainment, Inc.,
for funding the construc-
tion of this new store. Mr.
Richards is the owner of
Hamilton Downs, the new
Jai Lai Fronton being con-
structed -near Jasper on
US 129. Don't forget to
cast your ballot on Tues-
day, March 8, regarding
the latest development
with the Jai Lai Fronton as
it relates to the opening of
the card room. In this arti-
cle, I am not advocating
nor am I encouraging
anyone to view the issue
from one side or the other,
but I am saying that it is
our duty to vote our con-
science in this and all elec-
tions.
Early voting on this is-
sue is now available at the
Supervisor of Elections
Office. Please, please
vote!!!
Happy Belated Birthday
wishes to Ms. Linda
Thomas, longtime White
Springs resident and
Teacher Assistant at
South Hamilton Elemen-
tary. We wish Ms.
Thomas many, many
more Happy Birthdays!!!!
It is my understanding
that the Thomas family
will soon open the former
Three B's Restaurant at
CR 136 and 1-75 in Suwan-
nee County near White
Springs. We wish every-
one associated with the
new restaurant all the
best, and we will be de-
lighted to have this new
addition to our communi-
ty.

al event will be held the

If you haven't been to
see the newly released
children's movie "Be-
cause of Winn Dixie" -

It is a wonderful movie.
Take the time out and go
to see it. If you are young
or "young at heart," it is a
wonderful movie, but
don't mind me I am an
elementary educator, and
I still love "Charlotte's
Web."

of preparing for our East-
er Basket Raffle. We are

ket. We are also planning

THE- JASE N F


Wi SW

By Lillian Norris


Whatever time of day
you get your paper, I wish
you a good day. My tele-
phone has not been ringing
enough recently, I would
love to hear from you.
The teachers and stu-
dents have had a busy
week, the FCAT is now be-
hind them and we are sure
they have all done well. So
relax and get on with your
regular studies, you have
done your best.
Baseball and softball sea-
son is here, for the boys
and girls, and it is great to
see the support from rela-
tives and friends who
brave the weather and
cheer on the teams. Having
made a trip to the doctor's
office I haven't been able to
make all the games, but
hope that is behind me and
look forward to seeing
more of the games.
If the old stories are cor-
rect, we may be able to de-
termine what the weather
will be like at the end of
March. Over the years we
have heard that if March
comes in,like a lion it will
go out like a lamb, as the
beginning of the month ap-
proaches it looks as if it
will be a calm start for us in
our area, but not so good in
the northeast. Even if it is
not so calm at the end it
will be much better than
what others are experienc-
ing at this time.
The bad weather "up the
country" brings to mind
that when we were prepar-
ing to leave Kentucky,
which we really loved the
entire time we spent there
and wouldn't take any-
thing for the years of our
life there and the friends
we made while there, I had
told Wade that I would go
anywhere, just take me
south, maybe I told him I
would be happy any-
where, now that has cer-
tainly proven to be true,
never for the first minute
have there been any re-
grets for the move to
Jasper. The weather is
good, but even if the
weather seems bad at
times, the people here
make you feel blessed to
live here.
The report on the Rober-
son family is good at this
time. Whoe has returned
home after spending some
time at Shands,
Gainesville, suffering from
severe burns a couple of
weeks ago. The news is
that he did not have to un-
dergo the surgery they had
thought, the healing
seemed to be progressing
on its own, it will be sever-
al weeks before he can get
back to school, but they are
happy to be back in Jasper.
Robbielyn received a bro-
ken bone in her arm play-
ing softball, but has been
informed that she may be
back to playing soon, if all
goes as it is now. We saw
her at the baseball game
the other night, not realiz-
ing she had an accident,
and asked about Whoe.
Lynn and Robbie are glad
to have their family back
together, Lynn said they
are at her mother's right


Deadline is
Thursday,
March 4 at 5 p.m.
Winner will be
announced Friday,

now as they were packing
to get moved into their
new mobile home. A busy
time for all of them.
Phyllis Marvin is back
home after spending some
time with her new grand-
son, Alexander Robert
Schappe, born January 15;
and with her daughter and
her husband, Carrie and
Craig Schuppe and the oth-
er grandchildren, Joshua 6
and Megan 5, in Chicago
Illinois. Speaking of
weather, Phyllis saw plen-
ty of snow while in Chica-
go, but said she enjoyed it
and the family seems to
have adapted to the change
of climate, having been in
the south prior to the
move. Wherever the fami-
lies are together, that is the
important place to be.
Marsha and Henry Groll
spent a Saturday at the
Olustee Festival and were
quite impressed, they had
really not known exactly
what to expect, but were
pleasantly surprised. I
have never attended and
not really known that
much about it, except talk-
ing with others, after talk-
ing with Marsha it sounds
like it would be a very in-
teresting trip, with the en-
actment of the Olustee bat-
tle, seeing the people
dressed in period clothing,
with the various parapher-
nalia of the period, watch-
ing the marching, drilling,
setting up camps, Marsha
said it was a fascinating
day. Marsha and Henry are
an interesting couple and
always enjoy going new
places and seeing new
things.
Ladies of the First Baptist
Church, Jasper, honored
Miss Lindsey Williams,
daughter of Juana and
Richard C. Williams, at a
miscellaneous bridal show-
er on Monday, Feb. 21, at
the Fellowship Hall of the
Church. Lindsey is the
bride-to-be of Al Hughes
of Live Oak. Special guests
were Lindsey's mother
Juana Williams and the
groom-to-be's mother,
Alethia Williams of Live
Oak; and Lindsey's aunt,
Nita Cruce, Madison. The
ladies of the church had
decorated the Hall so taste-
fully in the bride-to-be's
chosen colors of white, sil-
ver and periwinkle, and
had prepared their favorite
party foods, which the
guests enjoyed while visit-
ing and viewing the dis-
play of lovely gifts. Lind-
sey received her degree in
nursing from Lake City
Community College and is
an RN at Lake City Med-
ical Center. Al is a classifi-
cation officer at the Correc-
tional Institution in Madi-
son. The wedding will be
Saturday, March 12 ,at
Stephen Foster State Folk
Culture Center. No local
invitations will be sent, rel-
atives and friends are invit-
ed to attend.
Ginger McGhin Kendoll
and Lori Duncan honored


Lindsey Williams at a lin-
gerie shower at the home
of Ginger Kendoll on Feb.
19. Friends from Melody
Christian Center, Live Oak,
honored the couple with a
miscellaneous shower at
the home of Stacie Swartz
in Live Oak. The couple
will be making their home
in Live Oak.
We talked with Kylie
Williams' father, Charles
Williams, and learned that
Kylie and her mother, Bar-
bara Williams, were in Or-
lando preparing Kylie for
the Miss Florida pageant.
Kylie won the title of Miss
North Florida in Branford,
a preliminary to entering
the Miss Florida Pageant.
Attending the pageant in
Branford to support Kylie
were her parents, her
grandmother, Jane Mc-
Daniel Deas, Connie Hal,
Babs Auman, Judy Moore,
Debra and Cierra Adams.
Kylie has chosen "I Want
To Be a Cowboy's Sweet-
heart" as her talent compe-
tition in each of her compe-
titions, it has proven to be
the right choice. Her talent
as well as her appearance
and her poise and pleasant
features have proven to be
assets that have carried her
to the Miss Florida pageant
for the second time.
Charles said, that Kylie
says, the two most impor-
tant wins to her have been
Miss Hamilton County
High School and Miss
Florida State, as she was
representing her family
and friends. She has also
been Miss Bay Meadows
(Jacksonville) prior to en-
tering the Miss Florida
Pageant. Kylie is a member
of Alpha Delta Pi sorority
at FSU. She will be gradu-
ating from FSU this year
with a major in marketing,
and plans to pursue a ca-
reer in music.
Plans are under way for
the Relay For Life to be
held on Saturday April 16,
with further plans to be an-
nounced at a later date.
There will be much more
information available to
you in future issues of the
Jasper News. Co-chairmen
of the event in Jasper are
Kim Eatmon and Sue
Allen.
Easter will be in March
this year, March 27 to be
exact. There are different
celebrations being
planned, we know that the
Good Friday service in
Jasper will be at First Pres-
byterian Church this year,
and understand that the
walk through Jasper will
be held around noon on
Friday. Palm Sunday will
be observed on March 20.
We expect that sunrise ser-
vice will be at the
Methodist Church (we will
check on that), and also at
Stephen Foster. I am sure
there will be egg hunts
everywhere, and we will
try to get the word out, call
me and let me know if you
have special Easter plans,
or visitors.
I need to get my news
earlier so I can get it to the
paper. I will look forward
to hearing from you. Stay
well.

Town


Happenings

By Robert Townsend
White Springs Town Manager


The Stephen Foster Folk
Cultural Center State Park
recently hosted the second
annual Master of Old-
Time Banjo Concert at the
auditorium. The concert
headliners included Mike
Seeger, a banjo player of
old-time string music, Ken
Pearlman, playing the
clawhammer banjo, and
banjo instructors Brad
Leftwich and Mac Ben-
ford. The concert was an
exciting two hours of
southern rural music, in-
cluding bluegrass, ballads
and blues.


It was a packed house
and even my dad, W.H.
Townsend, was tapping
his feet and moving to the
music. The show stopper
of course was the last mu-
sical number. All the per-
formers came on stage
playing banjos, violins,
and guitars singing "Way
down upon the Suwannee
River".
I must send kudos to
Folklorist Wendy Welsh
and the park staff on such
a wonderful evening. On
occasion I have paid over
fifty dollars and traveled


to the Times Union Per-
forming Center in Jack-
sonville to see this caliber
of performances. Admis-
sion for the concert was
only five dollars and the
best part was that it was in
my community.
On Monday I spoke with
Nick Lyras, owner of the
Telford Inn, and he stated
that after the concert the
performers stopped by
and jammed until the wee
hours of the morning. This
was a really wonderful
weekend for our commu-
nity; every bed and break-
fast, including the Telford,
was booked and every
restaurant was full. From
what I could see, everyone
was having a good time. If
you missed this event
watch the Park's an-
nouncements for upcom-
ing events. They're fantas-
tic.


Medicare Part D


will soon be available


The much talked about
Medicare Prescription
Drug Benefit's becomes a
reality on January first of
2006. The plan, called Part
D, will begin enrollment
for eligible Medicare re-
cipients on November 15,
2005. Part D will cover
some of the- cost of pre-
scription medicines for
Medicare enrollees. There
is an annual deductible of
$250 and a co-payment re-
quirement after the de-
ductible is met. More
specifics will become
available as time goes on.
One of the main con-
cerns the cost to lower
income persons has been
addressed. Those persons
above the Medicaid eligi-
ble limits but below 150%
of the Federal Poverty
Level guidelines will get
assistance in the premi-
ums. Some will also get a
waiver of the initial de-
ductible. Those who qual-
ified for the $600 credit on
the discount card pro-


gram will get Part D fully
paid for and will not pay
the deductible.
The required co-pay-
ment is also lowered for
eligible persons. The cost
will increase in steps for
those between 135% and
150% of the poverty level.
The current level is $9,310
annual income for a single
person, $12,490 for a cou-
ple and $3,180 for each for
each additional person.
The Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS) will begin
notifying eligible en-
rollees about the program
in the fall. Information
will also be available from
the local SHINE represen-
tative and the Hamilton
County Pharmacy Assis-
tance Program.
Anyone who is having
trouble paying for their
medicine or is not taking
it because they can not af-
ford it should contact the
Hamilton County
Pharmacy Assistance


Program office. Funded
by a grant from The Blue
Foundation for a
Healthy Florida, the
Hamilton County Phar-
macy Assistance Program
can help with the applica-
tion process for free or
low cost medicine. It is a
local resource for resi-
dents to find other
sources for medicines,
from discount cards for
everyone, to free pro-
grams for those who qual-
ify. The program has nu-
merous resources avail-
able for all Hamilton
County residents. Pro-
gram services are com-
pletely free.
The program is located
at 204 Northeast First
Street in the Sandlin
building across from the
courthouse. The entrance
is on the side of the build-
ing on First Avenue. It is
open weekdays from- 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. The tele-
phone number is 792-
2143.

"Here kitty, kitty, kitty!"
"Here kitty, kitty, kitty!"
No we are not calling cats
at South Hamilton, but it is
the time for that most fa-
mous of all cats in Florida's
public education system to
make his appearance, that
cat named "F". Students at
South Hamilton Elemen-
tary in grades K-6 will be
taking the FCAT and the
Stanford 9 assessments this
week and next week, Feb.
28 through March 4, and
March 7 through 11. Par-
ents, we NEED your help
in making certain your
children are at school and
on time during testing
weeks. Also, make certain
that your child/children
get a good night's rest the
night before the test. Ele-
mentary students need a
minimum of eight hours of
sleep. Make certain that on
test days your child eats a
good, nutritious breakfast
with a high protein compo-
nent not sugary.
We all love pancakes and
waffles with heavy syrup,
and sugary cereals, but
these are not good test day
breakfasts. Students need
to eat eggs, bacon, sausage,
or cheese toast, or toast
with a good slathering of
peanut butter. Any break-
fast selections need to be
high in protein.
Our thanks to Mrs.
Dorothy Bryant, guidance
counselor, for all her help
with testing, and thanks to
our staff members for all
their hard work.
We wish our students the
best of luck. Wear your red
"Aim for A+" t-shirts on
Monday students as, once
again, here at South Hamil-
ton "We aim for an A+."
Please say a prayer for us,

Mrs. Schmid's second
grade class participated in
the tornado drill on
Wednesday. The class dis-
cussed the importance of
locating a safe place in our
homes. In Reading this
week, students read the
story of man's first walk on
the moon in 1969. They
learned the names of astro-
nauts Mike Collins, Buzz
Aldrin, and Neil Arm-
strong. Students obtained
information from pic-
tographs. In Social Studies,
they reviewed vowel
sounds in words.
Mrs. Adams' third grade
has enjoyed the month of
Feb. We have been busy
reading and writing about
people that have influ-
enced our history. Ms.
Broadnax, our media spe-
cialist, has made many
books on black history
available to the students.
Everyone has learned some
very interesting informa-
tion this month. We've also
enjoyed working with our
math manipulatives ex-
ploring perimeter, area and
volume. Next week, we
will begin our FCAT test-
ing. Please help your child
to be positive in his or her
attitude. We always strive
to do our best. Our student
of the month is Chyanne
Brannan. Chyanne is a very-
responsible and helpful
student. She loves to read,
take AR tests, and play at
P.E. Keep up the good
work, Chyanne.
Mrs. Howell's fourth
grade Florida History class
enjoyed our partnership
field trip to the Battle of
Olustee. We watched, with
interest, the demonstra-
tions of rifle markmanship,
the firing of a large cannon,
primitive medical surgical
procedures, the smoky task
of making iron nails by a
blacksmith, cooking over
campfires, and storytelling.
We appreciate our parents
who braved the cool
weather to accompany us
on this historic trip back in
time.
If you have not attended


a local soccer game at our
city recreation area, you
have missed a treat. Our
students and parents really
owe Mr. Brad Hall great
thanks for his hard work
and dedication in provid-
ing the opportunities for
our student to participate
in many sports activities.
Fourth graders have also
benefited from the studies
provided by Mrs. Darcy
Broadnax, our media spe-
cialist during Black History
Month. We have also en-
joyed the new biographies
and other new reading
books recently purchased
by our library.
Cody Beadles, Landon
Blankenship, Austin Hugh-
es, and Mrs. Howell, had a
great time at Pizza Hut for
February Pizza Book It!!!!
This reading incentive pro-
gram ends at the end of
March.
Don't forget that the next
two weeks are testing
weeks. Fourth graders will
be taking the FCAT reading
and math!! Happy Birthday
to Shanice McKenzie on
February 25th!!!!
This week in fifth grade,
we have been busy review-
ing math skills for the
FCAT test. Student have
taken several practice tests.
Parents, please remember
that we have two more
FCAT Preparation Satur-
days for students in grades
3-6. This Saturday, Feb. 26,
we will be here from 9 a.m.
till 11 a.m. and next Satur-
day, March 5, at the same
time. We hope many of our
students in grades 3-6 will
take advantage of these tu-
torials.
We will not be having
any more after school tuto-
rials for FCAT Preparation.
We thank all the parents
and Mrs. Radford for your
support of the after school
program. Students, we
thank you for your atten-
dance. Good luck on the
FCAT!!!!!!!!!

history. We have learned
many different things in-
cluding African slave
trade, the use of drums in
silent trade, what a boycott
is and how it helped
Africans win their freedom
from European nations. We
have reviewed many skills
in math and reading this
week to help prepare for
the FCAT. We would also
like to thank Mrs. Radford
for coming to our class-
room and presenting us
with two reviews for
FCAT. One review was on
Author's purpose, and the
other review was on parts
of a poem. Thanks Mrs.
Radford.
In Miss Scaff and Ms.
Thomas' ESE class, stu-
dents have enjoyed a good
week. Everyone con-
tributed to prepare their
skills for the FCAT and
Stanford 10. Monday, we
will begin testing.
We encourage parents to
make sure your child has
plenty of rest, eats a
healthy breakfast and stays
positive about testing. You
can "Skin the cat!!!"


Parents, if you can con-
tribute candy, stuffed ani-
mals, or any items for our
PTO Easter Basket that will
be raffled beginning March
4, please send your items to
our school. We will begin
selling items very soon,
and we will need your con-
tributions right away. Tick-
ets will be $1.00 each.
In closing this week, I
would like to remind
everyone that we will be
providing our students
with a snack each day on
testing days over the next
couple of weeks. Also, we
will be providing a compli-
mentary breakfast to all
students who are testing
Monday through Wednes-
day of this week and next
week. Regardless of
whether you are on free, re-
duced, or paid lunch, the
school district will provide
you with breakfast. Once
again, students, good luck
to you. You are all in my
prayers. I know you have
all worked very hard. Do
your best next week on
FCAT as we work togeth-
er to "Skin the CAT!!!!!"

Al Alvarado promoted to general manager of Eddie Accardi in Lake City


Al Alvarado
AlAlvarado has had a major
'involvement in the automotive
scene in North Florida for
two decades.
As the area has grown, so
has the family of dealerships
and services.


The Eddie Accardi family
of dealerships has remained
committed to excellence at all
its locations. -
This week it was announced
that Al Alvarado has been pro-
moted to general manager for
the Eddie Accardi Chevrolet-
Mazda dealership in Lake
City.
He will be in charge of full
operations in new and used ve-
hicle sales, as well as the ser-
vice department and body
shop.
"Al represents the best and
brightest to our dealerships,"
stated Eddie Accardi, owner of
the Eddie Accardi Motor
Company of Florida.
"He has strong, fair and
honest management skills."
Alvarado joined the Chevro-


let-Mazda dealership when it
opened in September of 1998.
"We are in the business for
the long term," stated Alavara-
do.
"We have met factory de-
mands for substantial invest-
ments in land, buildings,


trained and qualified employ-
ees, parts inventories, service
facilities and equipment.
"Our dealership is commit-
ted to the community, employ-
ing skilled professionals, gen-
erating tax revenues and par-
ticipating in civic, cultural and


charitable activities.
"We value relationships with
customers and a variety of
businesses to build your trust
and your loyalty."
Alvarado went on to say the
Chevrolet division of General
Motors has added a number of


automotive car and truck lines
to its original line-up of vehi-
cles in order to provide more
and more customers the satis-
faction of being able to join the
Eddie Accardi family.
"I look forward to seeing
you," he said.

In November of 2004
Rick Marler opened his
third business in the Suwan-
nee Valley area, "The Digi-
tal Bean," a PC gaming
business that serves not
only for gaming but also as
a research center. Marler's
other two businesses Light-
ning Access and the Com-
puter E.R. have been estab-
lished for more than eight
years. Marler serves in
many capacities in his com-
panies. He assists and over-
sees in areas such as cus-
tomer and employee rela-
tions, billing, research and
development and network
operations. He has worked
in many computer related
jobs as an Internet 'service
provider, a network admin-
istrator for a community
college as well as a univer-
sity. Marler says he started
these businesses because he
saw an opportunity in this
area for the services he pro-
vides.
The services these compa-
nies provide are Internet ac-
cess, web posting, co-loca-
tion, broad band, high level
wireless networking, PC
gaming, and research.
Marler and his staff are
highly trained and qualified.
Marler attended North
Florida Community Col-
lege, as well as the Univer-
sity of Central Florida. Mar-
ler says he enjoys many
things about his work but
mostly enjoys working with
the newest types of tech-
nologies as well as building
strong business relation-
ships. Marler enjoys a won-
derful family and attends
Suwannee Station Baptist
Church. When asked what
his hobbies are, he humor-
ously replies," When do I
have time for hobbies?"
One of Marler's biggest
goals in business is to pro-
vide high speed services to
the entire Suwannee County
area.
At less than 30 years of
age, Marler is on his way to
being one of the most suc-
cessful men in Suwannee
County.

Think before you sip
It happens every day. People take a quick swig from a bottle of
water or juice that they thought was theirs. If they're lucky, the
only consequence might be a chiding comment that they've picked
up the wrong drink. Far too often, though, the consequences are
much more serious. The person drinking the "wrong drink" ends up
with a mouthful of germs,
-l instead of just a mouthful
of refreshment. And for
S' people with food
allergies, drinking from a
bottle other than their
"( ; i "own can even be deadly.
Take a look around your
i'. local gym, playground or
Child's sporting event and
you'll see countless
S beverage bottles that look
identical. In fact, how
Everyday, people take a sip from someone else's bottle many times have you
that they think is theirs. Beverage ID tags can help prevent een your own child pick
that from happening to you or your children. seen yur own child pic
up a drink that he thought
was his and start gulping away? You watch from afar, praying that
whomever's bottle he's picked up doesn't have a cold, sore throat --
or worse. And just imagine how many times you or a family
member have mistakenly finished a whole bottle of someone else's
beverage. It kind of makes all of the unexplained colds, viruses and
cases of stomach flu make sense, doesn't it?
"In addition to washing your hands frequently, not drinking from
other people's drink containers is perhaps the best way to prevent
the spread of germs from person to person," says Toni Ann Claire,
M.D., a pediatrician in East Rockaway, New York. "Bottled drinks
are breeding grounds for all types of harmful bacteria, and just a
few sips of someone else's beverage are enough to spread germs
and disease."
Within the past few years, public health officials have made great
strides in preventing the spread of germs by advocating frequent
hand washing. But when it comes to not drinking out of other
people's glasses, cups or bottles, it's not just a matter of telling
people not to do it. It's more about helping to prevent drinking
from someone else's drink container unknowingly or, equally as
dangerous, preventing someone else from drinking out of your
glass or bottle when you're not around.
To make sure that you're not putting yourself at increased risk for
germs, health experts advise the following:
At the gym, keep your water bottles close to you. People often
reach for the bottle closest to them, and may forget that they left
their bottle at another machine.
Have your bottled beverage stand out from the others. Just
marking your name on your bottle isn't enough. Thirsty people
don't take the time to read the "fine print" -- until it's too late. To
reduce the chances of other people drinking from your bottle or
your children's bottles, consider the latest way to "tag" them. Itz
Mine! Beverage ID Tags make it easier for people to keep track of
their bottles. The tags come in bright colors and their designs
reflect a variety of sports/leisure themes, as well as include a
"Property Of' space to write a name. The products are available at
sporting goods stores and drug stores nationwide.
"I realized that I was throwing away my water bottles each day at
the gym because I couldn't identify my own, and I was aghast at
the thought of drinking out of a stranger's beverage bottle," says Itz
Mine! founder and president Lisa Moschitta. "The tags give people
the peace of mind that they're not going to get sick from
mistakenly drinking from someone else's bottle at places like the
gym, school or sporting events."
So to stay healthier during any season, remember to keep your
drinks to yourself and keep other people's germs at bay.

AND THE GOSPEL MUST BE PUBLISHED AMONG AL NATIONS- MARK 13:10

Suwannee Valley


How important is Bible prophecy


By Rev. Harold
B. Bennett
What God has revealed
to mankind concerning the
future... man (both in and
out of the church) has done
his dead-level best to con-
ceal or pervert. Let me ask
one question to the aver-
age churchgoer ... how of-
ten does your pastor
preach on "end-time
prophecy?" Think about
it!!! By the same token,
how long has it been since
you wondered why he
avoided this theme? After
all, Bible prophecy appears
over 8,000 times through-
out the Bible (a fair per-
centage is centered around
the second coming of
Christ) and is recorded in
part by almost every writer
in the Bible. Did you know
that Bible prophecy proves
the authenticity of the
Bible, the validity of Jesus
as the Son of God, the fact
that this world as we know
it is coming to a close, and
that there is indeed a
"heaven" and a "hell,"
among other things. Even
those who teach the second
coming of Christ, often
mislead their hearers by
claiming that When Christ
comes for His church, it
will be done secretly. This
is denied,.in Revelations
1:7, Matthew 24:21-27, and
Paul points out that the
church will not be taken
unawares (see I Thessalo-
nians 5:1-8). All in all, there
are 29 books (using 69 pas-
sages) throughout the
Bible which reveal this
truth.
Regardless of the "argu-
ments" that arise when
"end-time" prophecies are
discussed, all we have to
do is listen to the Master ...
the Lord Jesus Christ ... in
Matthew 24:25. It begins
with the concern of several
of His disciples about
when the Lord would set
up His kingdom upon the
earth (they asked again just
before He ascended to His
heavenly, home (see Acts
1:6-11). Our Lord warned
His disciples to beware of
"false teachers" who will


come claiming that they
are come in His name and
will deceive many. Over
the years and especially in
modern times, false
prophets have been in
abundance (see II Corinthi-
ans 11:13-15). This be-
comes the first "sign" that
the time of His return is "at
hand." NOTE: Of the many
"faces" of deception we see
all around us, "believism"
takes the greatest toll of
"lost souls." What is "be-
lievism? It is simply believ-
ing that Jesus was indeed
upon earth and He died for
sinners. What's wrong
with that? Nothing ... as far
as it goes ... but without
"repentance" it becomes a
"false doctrine" which will
lead many down the
"broad way" which leads
to hell (see Matthew 7:13-
23). The Lord Jesus made
the falsity of "believism"
quite clear when He said,
"Unless you repent you
shall all likewise perish
(Luke 13:3). The apostle
Paul further clarified this
all-important truth (see
Acts 20:20-21). One cannot
qualify as a Christian sim-
ply by accepting the fact
that Jesus existed, joining a
church, and / or turning
over a. "new leaf." Salva-
tion is a miracle of God
which transforms a sinner
into a saint of God (see Ti-
tus 2:11-12, II Corinthians
5:17). ,
Our Lord continues list-
ing other "signs" ... an in-
crease of wars and rumors
of wars, of famines, and of
earthquakes (see Matthew
24:6-8) which are only the
beginning of "birth pangs"
(that is, the birth of 'new
age). "Then they (the ene-
mies of the Cross) will de-
liver you (the church ... see
Matthew 10:16-23) up to
tribulation and will kill
you, and you will be hated
by all nations on account of
My name" (see Matthew
24:9). Because of the sever-
ity of the persecution to-
wards the church, many
who claimed to be Chris-
tians will turn away from
God (the great apostasy ...


see II Thessalonians 2:3). II
Thessalonians 2:1-5 de-
clares that the Lord will
not return until after the
Antichrist appears in an
active role on earth and a
great apostasy from the
church is activated (for
more details see Revelation
13:1-10 and Matthew 24:15-
31). Above and beyond all
the signs that point to our
Lord's coming for His
church (see Matthew 24:29-
31) the greatest is found in
Matthew 24:14 ... "And this
gospel of the kingdom
shall be preached (and/or
witnessed) in the whole
world for a witness to all
the nations and then shall
the end come." In effect,
the true church has a re-
sponsibility to share the
gospel wherever there is
an opportunity to do so ...
to friends, family mem-
bers, to neighbors, etc.
NOTE: It is important to
remember that the Christ-
ian's motive for witnessing
or sharing important Bible
truths must always reflect
our love ... the fact that we
care. Sometimes. people
take offense when hearing
truth ... and this may be re-
flected in various ways.
Take heart, over the past
2,000 years witnessing
Christians have been tor-
tured and even killed be-
cause of their witness for
God ... and it will happen
again just before Christ re-
turns to resurrect the saints
... (read the book "Fox's
Book of Martyrs"). Revela-
tion 12:17 says, "and the
dragon (representing Sa-
tan) was enraged with the
woman (representing Is-
rael who God protected ...
(see Revelation 12:15-16)
and went off to make war.
with the rest of her off-
spring" (or Christians ...
how do I know this? ... no-
tice the rest of this verse ...
"who keep the command-
ments of God and bear the
testimony of Jesus."
Christians can also have
access to a tract ministry
which can be used when
paying bills, left in restau-
rants when dining out, etc.
The sad truth is that a large
percentage of existing
churches have become as
the church of Laodicea (see
Revelation 3:14-22).
In closing, let me say this
... I offer this article not as a
criticism, but rather, it is
offered as a reminder and
an encouragement to those
Christians who read this to
be busy fulfilling the will
of God as it is stated in the
Word of God. Take time to
read II Corinthians 5:14-
21!!!


Genesis 25: 29-33


Pastor Lester Curry
Faith Community Church
Once when Jacob was
cooking some stew Esau
came in from the open
country, famished. He said
to Jacob, "Quick, let me
have some of that red stew!
I'm famished!" Jacob
replied, "First sell me your
birthright."
"Look, I am about to
die," Esau said. "What
good is the birthright to
me?" But Jacob said,
"Swear to me first." So he
swore an oath to him, sell-
ing his birthright to Jacob.
In this passage of scrip-
ture we have two ap-
proaches to life; one broth-
er is willing to do whatever
it takes to get something of
great value and the other
was willing to give up
something of great value
for a very small price.
As I was contemplating
the message in this passage
of scripture my mind went
back to another time when
I was a boy living at home
with my mother and father.
I remember in those days it
was always a stretch to
make ends meet To help
make them meet Saturday
became known as "bean
soup day" at our house!
You know, I never got tired
of my mother's bean soup
and even now I can smell
the wonderful aroma that
filled our home on Satur-
day mornings. My mother
went home to be with Lord
many years ago and as I
was reading this story
about Esau and Jacob, this
thought came to my mind;
what would I give, how
much would I pay if I
could have another bowl of


my mother's bean soup?
Esau had a bowl of stew!
It must have tasted as good
to him as my mother's bean
soup did to me. However,
it was just stew. When
compared to his birthright,
the stew looks pretty triv-
ial; the trivial next to the
treasure; the temporary
next to the eternal. Before
Esau took his first spoonful
of stew, Jacob, his brother,
gave him the bill; "this
bowl of stew will cost you
your birthright." In that
moment Esau had a deci-
sion to make and in that
moment Esau traded some-
thing of great value, his
birthright, for the trivial!
Today we see people
making the same kinds of
trades that Esau made.
Every day people take the
treasure of marriage and
children and give them
away for a cheap one night
stand. Sometimes careers
are traded because of a
foolish decision to do
something dishonest. Often
times people will trade
their reputations and char-
acter for addictions. And
sometimes people will
even trade their
"birthright" into God's
family for worldly plea-
sures! Sometimes I feel like
screaming, why? Why do
you insist on wasting your
life?
"Esau, why would you
make a trade like this?" He
made the trade for the
same reason people make
the trade today strong
temptation! The Word of
God reveals the three faces
of. temptation. They are
called, "lust of the eyes,"
"lust of the flesh" and "the


pride of life." Esau's down-
fall was the desire of the
flesh. Temptation came
when he wanted fullness in
his stomach more than
faithfulness in his heart. He
craved selfishness more
than sinlessness. He want-
ed his own gratification
more than God's glorifica-
tion.
Before you decide to
make a trade in your life,
remember these words.
"When we sin, we will go
further than we ever in-
tended to go! When we sin,
we will stay longer than we
ever intended to stay!
When we sin, we will pay
more than we ever intend-
ed to pay!" (source of quote
unknown). If we could just
see our future and the won-
derful plan that God has
for us we would never
trade His plan for the
worlds. If we would take
the time to pray and seek
God's voice through the
power of the Holy Spirit; If
we would learn to pray
through the trade-offs that
we are confronted with
each day and if we would
only surrender our lives to
the One who said, "I have
come that they may have
life, and have it to the full"
- the One who gave His life
on Calvary for the forgive-
ness of sin, Christ Jesus, we
would make better and
holier trades in life.
So, what is it that you
treasure? What is it that
you consider valuable?
What are you willing to
trade?
How much would you
pay for a bowl of soup?
Please, do not sell yourself
short!


Bring out the best in others


We all have an obligation to try to bring out the
good qualities in others. It is an important respon-
sibility for parents and teachers to recognize and
help develop the talents thaf their children may
possess. Coaches, clergy, employers, and even hus-
bands and wives also bear a responsibility to help
bring out the best in those with whom they associ-
ate. Supporting and caring about others exempli-
fies the love that God has for us, and in the Bible,
there are many examples of ordinary people be-
coming heroes and heroines because our Lord was
able to bring out their best efforts. Being consider-
ate, kind and helpful to others not only brings out
the best in them, it also brings out the best in us.
It is important to reflect good values and God's
love in our everyday life, and we should be mind-
ful that our words and actions do affect others.

By Pam Campbell
Time really seems to fly
by. The month of February
came and went almost as
fast as we could blink! Here
we are in the third month of
the New Year! Have you
been using your time wise-
ly since the New Year be-
gan? I wonder how many of
us actually take enough
time for God. Yes, it is true
that most of us always have
too much to do and it seems
never enough time to do it.
We do need to take care of
our families, we do need to
work, or go to school, there
are extracurricular activi-
ties, meetings, household
chores, groceries to buy,
places to go, people to see,
errands to run, many peo-
ple and things demanding
our time. Each day we are
given 24 hours to eat, sleep,
take care of our bodies, our
families, work, play and all
the other things involved in
our own lives. Sometimes
you may wonder how in
the world you can get it all
done, or feel like you just
can't. Have you ever
stopped to think that
maybe the reason you get
stressed out is that you are
trying to do too many
things? One of the things
That I,-ha.ve fLund.to be a big
factor in feeling over-
whelmed and stressed out
is very simple, not getting
enough rest! God created
our bodies to need to rest.
I know, we all think we
can "do it all," but the truth
is we are God's creation,
and as someone created in
the image Of God, we
should follow in His paths.
The truth is only God "can
do it all." When God's son
Jesus walked this earth he
always had people who
were after Him to come to
their house; and to help
them, to come lay hands on
someone. He was busy, but
He was about the Father's
Business. Christians created
in the image of God should
be about God's business.
We surely should take time


out each week to go to
church, we should become
involved in our local
church, and we certainly
should help others. But, we
must understand that even
when we are doing the
Lord's work we can get so
busy that we forget who we
are working for and why.
Going to church, prayer
meetings, Sunday School,
Revivals or any other Chris-
tian function, though very
important, cannot ever re-
place our own personal
time with God. When Jesus
walked this earth even He
knew he needed to be alone
with the Father. In the Bible
in the book of Mark, chap-
ter 14, verses 32-35, we find
Jesus going into the Garden
of Gethsemane to talk to
God. "They went to a place
called Gethsemane, and Je-
sus said to His disciples,
"Sit here while I pray." He
took Peter, James and John
along with Him, and He be-
gan to be deeply distressed
and troubled. "My soul is
overwhelmed with sorrow
to the point of death," He
said to them. "Stay here and
keep watch." Going a little
farther, He fell to the
ground and prayed that if
possible the hour might
pass, from Him.',, You; .see
even Jesus, God's Son,
needed to talk to His Fa-
ther, God, especially when
He was so distressed and
troubled because He knew
His death would soon
come, because of our sins.
When you are stressed out,
Jesus really does under-
stand and wants to help
you.
In Jeremiah 29:13 we read
"And ye shall seek Me, and
find Me, when ye shall
search for Me with all your
heart." If you can be alone
with God, take time for
God, you will find Him,
and He will always help
you.
Have you ever been in the
presence of someone who
seemed to make you un-
comfortable? You just did


not feel quite right about
being around them? Now,
have you ever been around
someone you really enjoyed
being around; there was
just something so special, so
joyful, so peaceful about
that person that you want-
ed to have what they have?
The difference in the two is
simple, one has been spend-
ing time with the things of
the world, and the other has
been spending time with
the Heavenly Father. If we
are truly Christians, if we
say we love God and that
we live for Jesus, then our
lives should reflect Jesus.
Many people struggle with
how to get their lives to re-
flect Jesus. Sure, it is easy to
sing the little song "This
Little Light of Mine, I'm
Gonna Let It Shine,a" but is
it really shining? Or have
we become as busy as
everyone else in the world,
so busy with our lives and
even busy with what we
think is God's work that we
have forgotten what it takes
to really let our lights shine,
what it takes.to always have
that sweet peace and joy in
our lives on a daily basis,
have we gotten to the point
where we too, are living a
stressed out life? ,. .
,We can.learn a lot about
being too busy from Mary
and Martha. In Luke 10: 38-
42 we read about Jesus and
His disciples going to the
home of Mary and Martha.
Mary chose to spend her
time sitting at Jesus' feet lis-
tening to what He said, but
Martha was all worried
about all; the preparations
for their coming. She got
mad and asked Jesus to tell
her sister to help her, and
Jesus told her she was wor-
ried and upset about many
things, but that was not
what mattered. Mary had
chosen what mattered, to
take time to sit at her Sav-
ior's feet. When we get all
worried and upset, remem-
ber the only thing that mat-
ters is spending time with
God.


Do you feel you are on a
ride that you can't get off,
like the stress sometimes is
closing in on you, trying to
overtake you? There is a
way to get that peace back,
to turn your life around, to
get off the out of control
ride you are on, there is
hope for each of us to live a
life with much less stress,
there is a way to have that
joy back on your face and in
your heart. The way is sim-
ple if you will just take the
time! The most important
thing you can do every day
in the 24 hours that God
gives you is take time for
God. Not just a little prayer
over the food, not just when
you pray with your kids at
night, not a prayer meeting,
not going to church, though
all good, they will never
take the place of what is
needed in your spirit, soul
and body, time alone with
GOD.
I wonder how many of
you remember when I chal-
lenged you to take time to
go outside at night and look
up at the magnificent stars
and talk to God? I hope that
some of you did remember,


God is


and took the time. I am sure
if you did, you were very
happy with the peace that
you felt and the joy you re-
ceived from spending time
alone with God the father. If
you have not tried this yet, I
ask you again to try, it is
very simple really, just go
outside after dark and look
up at the glorious display of
stars that God has created
and talk to Him. Maybe you
can't go outside, I under-
stand, but you too can still
find a way to be alone with
God. Maybe you wonder
how to talk to God. A lot of
times I think even Chris-
tians don't seem to under-
stand that talking to God is
just like talking to another
person, just talk and He will
listen, to anything good or
bad that you have to say.
Don't ever be afraid to tell
God anything because He
already knows everything.
Take time to worship Him,
to thank Him for your life,
your salvation, your family,
for everything and most of
all give Him praise!
When you get to the place
where you take time every
day to be alone with God,


you will not be so stressed,
you will find that peace and
joy once again, you won't
feel you are on an out-of-
control merry go round.
You will be able to sing
with all your heart "This
Little Light of Mine" and it
really will shine! You see,
people who are not Chris-
tians should be able to tell
that you have been in the
presence of God just by be-
ing around you.
Remember, everyone on
the earth gets the same 24
Hours you do, what you
choose to do with your 24
hours will make a big dif-
ference in how you feel,
how you think, how you act
and how others see you.
God wants us to get plenty
of rest, to take care of our-
selves and our families, to
work hard, to do His work.
But, the thing that most
everybody skips is spend-
ing enough quality time
alone with God. Do your-
self; and everyone you
know a favor, make that
your first priority, then
your life will be filled with
the joy of the Lord! It's time
to take time for God!


always watching

Being our Creator, God knows us better than we know
ourselves, and He is aware of everything in our lives. He
know- about all of our problems and all of our joys, and
he knows our good qualities as well as our shortcomings.
Sometimes we may forget that God is watching us. We
may believe that when we do something wrong, it's not
really that bad if no one sees us or it we do not get caught.
We may even rationalize our actions and try to convince
ourselves that the wrong we did was justified. However,
God never rationalizes our behavior and he knows what
is in our hearts. Even with all ot our imperfections. He
loves us and forgives our wrongdoing. Whenever we are
tempted or realize that we may have sinned or hurt some-
one, we should ask our Lord's forgiveness and try to
make amends. The Lord's Prayer exemplifies God's grace
and mercy when we pray, "forgive us our sins, just as we
have forgiven those who have sinned against us."

Easter


By Aunt Pam
Have you kids noticed
how fast the time has
gone since it was Christ-
mas -and New Year's!
Now we have already
passed Valentine's day
and Easter will be com-
ing soon! Time seems
like it just flies by! Soon
you will be out of school
and summer will be


here.
Everyday each of you
have 24 hours to live,
and it is up to you and
your parents, or whoever
you live with to decide
what you do with those
hours. We know that we
all need to sleep, to take
a bath, to help with the
chores, go to school, do
our homework, hopeful-


ly go to church, eat
breakfast, lunch. and
supper, read, play and
maybe participate in af-
ter school activities. See,
even kids have a lot to
do each day, and I am
sure you can think of a
lot of other things you
need to do in a 24-hour
day! But I want to know
do you take time every


day for the most impor-
tant thing of all? The
thing that can make your
days and nights happy
and peaceful, .without
that word stress! The an-
swer is very simple and
when you learn to do it
every day, you will have
lots of peace and joy, and
you will enjoy all of your
time everyday much


more! The simple answer
is take time to spend
with God! I don't mean
when you go to church,
or pray at- the dinner
table, I mean actually
taking time to go outside
alone or go in bedroom,
whatever. place you can
go to be alone to pray.
Praying is really easy,
just talk to God like you


do to your family. God
understands everything
we say, because He al-
ready knows everything,
but it is important for us
to tell Him what we need
or want, and to let Him
fill us with His peace
and His joy everyday!
God is always there for
you, so take some time
every day for God.


Behind the Veil


Jesus died at Calvary
For the sin of all mankind
The action of love
preformed that day,
Was in God's perfect time.
It was found out, that blessed eve,
Oh, dear brother, without fail.
Jesus was that sacrificed Lamb,
So long hid behind the veil.
The Holiness of Holies,
Was where the High Priest
acted out,

The sacrifice for many;
In their heart there was no doubt.
The Lamb would be sufficient,
To stand in their stead.
Without the shedding
of innocent blood,
There would be not
one worthy breath.
Though publicly Jesus hung there,
His body marred and turning
pale.
His blood flowed for everyone,


For the last time behind the veil.
Jesus yielded up His Spirit,
The Glory from heaven fell.
The veil was rent
from top to bottom,
He was the One behind the veil.
Don't let anybody fool you,
Neither on radio, TV, or by mail.
Our Savior is the Promise,
For all to view' behind the veil.
Thank You Lord,
Kathy Wilson
