Dear Classified Guys,
After 40 years of working as a sales-
man, my husband has retired.
However, he's not the type of person
who can sit idle. In fact, I think he
needs a part-time job to get him out
of the house. Yet instead of getting a
job, he's falling back on his selling
skills. Last month he bought a hot
tub through the classified ads think-
ing it was something we should own
in retirement. After two weeks he
decided it was too much work and
resold it, but at a $500 profit. This
started the problem. He's come up
with the idea of buying things in the
classified ads and reselling them for
a profit. Although it sounds good in
theory, I don't think it will
work. Plus, it won't get him z-..,
out of the house. How do I
convince him that the hot -
tub sale was a fluke and he .
needs a different part-time job?

Carry: Well if you're looking for
someone to say shopping the classified
is a waste of time, you've come to the
wrong guys.
Cash: We like to think of classified
shopping as a hobby though, not neces-
sarily a part-time job.
Carry: Buying and selling items

Duane "Cash" Hoize
& Todd "Carry" Holze


2006 The Classified Guys


found in the classified can be quite prof-
itable. If you learn how to purchase
items at a low enough price, then you can
often resell them for a profit, providing
you took care of them.
Cash: However, it does depend on the
type of items you purchase. Some things
hold their value better than others.
Typically larger items, like boats or
motorcycles, have a greater potential for
profit over less expensive items like
household appliances.
Carry: If your husband is the type of
person who reads the classified daily, he
may be able to spot the deals when they
are advertised. Considering his previous


employment, buying and selling may
come natural to him.
Cash: Before you encourage your
husband to find a new part-time job, you
may want to give him a little more time
to explore his retirement. It can be a dra-
matic change in lifestyle and require
some time to adjust.
Carry: Exploring new ideas may lead
to new interests. And considering his
recent purchase of a hot tub, you never
know what will show up next.
Cash: If you'd like to get him out of
the house, consider sharing in his new
adventures. After all, retirement should
be about having fun together.

Wiser Workers
Most people who work a 9 to 5 job
dream of the day they'll retire, kick
back and relax or do they? In a recent
AARP survey of working adults age 45
to 70, 70% said they wanted to continue
working at least part-time or never
retire at all. Of those surveyed, 86%
said working helps keep them healthy
and active. This is good news for the
employers since by 2014 nearly one-
third of the total U.S. workforce will be
age 50 or older.

Picking Up Speed
At.104 years old, Waldo McBurney
shows no signs of slowing down. This
year, Experience Works, a group that
provides employment services for sen-
iors, named him America's Oldest
Worker. Each year they conduct a
nationwide search. After a 25-year
career in agriculture, Waldo then started
his own business. In addition, he took
up long distance running at age 65, and
at 80 he set the 10-mile Kansas state
record for his age group. He's contin-
ued to set records at the Senior
Olympics throughout his 90's and 100's.

Up the Volume
I hadn't realized how funny it was to
be around my grandparents until I
recently flew out to visit them. They
both have had trouble with their hear-
ing over the years and now need to
wear hearing aids full time. However,
they rarely put them in when they con-
verse with each other.
This was apparent one morning at
breakfast. As we all sat down at their
outside table, my grandmother com-
mented, "It sure is windy."
My grandfather, obviously mishear-
ing her, replied, "Wednesday? I think
it's Thursday."
I laughed even harder when my
grandmother stood up and said, "I'm
thirsty too. I'll go get us some drinks."

One-car accident

leaves woman in

critical condition
Edith Johnson, 94, of Jennings, was flown to Shands UF Trauma Center in
.critical condition after an accident on Thursday, Oct. 26, according to a Flori-
da Highway Patrol media release.
Johnson was traveling west on CR 152 when she apparently experienced.
some type of medical distress, according to the preliminary investigation. It
appeared that Johnson did not take any evasive action, the report states.
The 1994 Olds Cutlass she was driving veered off the roadway, onto the
shoulder of the road and continued down' the embankment, according to the
report. The undercarriage of the car struck a raised culvert. As the car contin-
ued traveling along the shoulder of the road, it hit a gate and a pole and then
hit two trees before coming to a stop.
There were no charges filed, the report states.


Bus drivers and school officials participated in safety awareness activities on Friday, Oct.
20, in recognition of School Bus Safety Week. Staff Photo


National School Bus Safety Week is ob-
served each year to provide public educa-
tion about school bus safety. The theme
for this year's event, which was held Oct.
15 through Oct. 21, was "I See The Driver
- The Driver Sees Me."
'On Friday, the Hamilton County School
District Transportation Department spon-
sored several talks by vendors, local busi-
ness owners, government officials and
others. The intormatixve morning ended
with a luncheon prepared by the School
District Food Services.
"In Hamilton County, we have over 30
school buses," Transportation System
Specialist Ward Daniels said. "More than
1,289 students .are transported to and
from our schools each school day, and
our buses travel nearly 576,051 miles each
year."
"Our school bus drivers are doing a
great job, but they need the cooperation


of other motorists," Daniels added. "We
are asking them for their assistance in
helping us to maintain or even improve
our safety record."
One of the greatest hazards comes from
motorists who do not observe the school
bus lighting system. School buses use an
eight-light warning system. These lights
are located on the front and rear of the
bus near the top where you see the
"school bus" sign. The lamps are used-to
warn other traffic about what the bus is
doing.
When the bus is approaching a loading
or unloading area, the yellow lights will
flash. Red lights will flash when the bus is
stopped to load or unload students and a
stop arm will be extended from the side
of the bus.
This system was adopted because it

TWO TEENS INJURED IN ATV CRASH: Two teenagers were injured, both seriously, Oct. 24
when an ATV they were on overturned. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Ashley
Latreille, 15, Live Oak, was driving a 2005 Yamaha Rhino at about 3:55 p.m. on Pinecrest
Road when she attempted to make a sudden U turn on 74th Trace back onto Pinecrest
Road. The Rhino was traveling too fast to negotiate the turn and struck the west shoul-
der of Pinecrest Road, causing it to overturn and eject both Latreille and her passenger,
Tabitha Lansing, 16, ofJennings, FHP said. Both victims were transported to Shands at
Live Oak for treatment of their injuries. Latreille was charged with careless driving and no
valid driver's license. Suwannee County Fire/Rescue professionals and deputies at the
scene work to ready the two teens for transport to the hospital. Ph6to: Susan K. Lamb

Pharmacy Assistance office relocates


Submitted by Gayle Bryan, Program
Director
The Pharmacy Assistance has un-
dergone several changes recently.
The first was in July when the pro-
gram was closed to the public so
that the new computer program
could be uploaded, installed and
set up. This caused a slow down in
the application process for about
two weeks.
Now when an applicant needs
help, an application or update can
be downloaded from any computer
that has Internet connection. Data is
kept on a secure website. The new
program has several reports that al-
low tracking of drugs and refills to
be observed and worked with
quickly.
It is still the client's responsibility
to call the Pharmacy Assistance Of-
fice when the medication is re-
ceived in order to get refills. There
is a 24 hour answering machine
that can take the message.
The Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
gram office has moved-to 313 NE

Mike Sullivan, director of education for Take Charge
America, a non-profitcredit counseling company, says the
credit system is complex, and that's why it is important to
turn to an expert for help. ,:
"If Vout have questions about your credit, see a credit
counselor or financial planner for the most accurate an-
swers," he said. "We all have varying levels of financial se-
curity. What's best for your sister or co-worker, may not be
the best solution for you.".
Sullivan says many consumers confuse the functions of
their credit score and their credit report.
"Your credit score is .a three digit number that summa-
rizes your credit report," he said. "An 800 means life is
good, 400 means you won't be buying a car this year."
To help sort the confusion, Sullivan has laid out the top
ten myths about credit:
Settling your debt will remove it from your credit report.
Unfortunately, it's not that easy. Late payments and collec-
tions generally stay on your credit report for seven years,
and they can still affect your credit score. However, if you
have paid the debt in full, that will be noted on the report.
Too much debt? Just file for bankruptcy to erase it. New
bankruptcy laws passed last fall make it harder to file for
Chapter 7, which completely erases debt. This is forcing
more people to file for Chapter 13, which requires a five-
year repayment plan. All debtors are also required to com-
plete credit counseling before filing. Moreover, bankrupt-
cy remains on your credit report for 10 years.
Canceling your credit cards will improve your credit
score.. If you have $50,000 in available credit and owe
.$10,000, then you owe 20 percent of your available credit. If
you close an account with a $30,000 credit limit, you will
then owe the same $10,000 but it will be 50 percent of your
available credit. That lowers your credit score.
Your credit score is the same at all three credit bureaus.
Lenders are not requi red to report to all three of the major
credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and Trans Union. Each
agency may have different information on your report, and

therefore, a different score.
Continually checking your credit report will lower your
score. You can check your report from the three credit bu-
reaus as many times are you want, and it will not affect
your credit score. To obtain a credit report, visit wwvw.an-
nualcreditreport.com.
Your salary helps determine your credit score. Your cred-
it score is based on the amount of credit and debt you have,
not how much money you make. If you receive a raise, and
your credit and debt remain the same, your credit score will
not improve.
Shopping around for a loan can damage your credit
score. While inquiries do show up on your credit report,
they do not necessarily damage your score. If the same
types of inquiries are made within 14 days of each other,
they only count as one inquiry on your credit report. Keep
in mind that this applies to loans, not credit cards.
Using cash for everything helps increase your credit
score. Your credit score is determined by the amount of
credit you use, not cash.. A steady, responsible use of cred-
it is the best way to build your credit score.
. Tying the knot means tying credit scores. Credit scores,
for better or worse, remain separate after you are married.
If you open a joint account, the credit information will show
up on both reports.
If you co-sign on a loan, you don't owe anything on
delinquent accounts if you didn't make the purchases. If the
primary loan recipient is not able to pay, the co-signer is re-
sponsible for the debts, whether that person made any pur-
chases or not.

It has been three years since you left us.
Our lives go on without you, but nothing is
the same. \\%e have to hide our heartaches
when someone speaks your name. Sad are
the hearts that love you, silent the tears
that fall. Living our hearts without you is
the hardest part of all. You did so many
things for us, your heart was kind and
WII true. And when we needed someone we
could always count on you. The special
years "ill not return when we were all
together, but with the love within our
hearts you will walk with us forever.
"You will always be loved and never

Freedom Pest 2006


The Hamilton County Alcohol and Other
Drug Prevention Coalition sponsored Free-
dom Fest 2006 at Buddy Parker Park on
Saturday, Oct. 21. Corporate sponsors, PCS
Phosphate and First Federal Savings Bank,
provided a bouncy tent and an inflatable
slide much to the delight of the children
that attended. Other businesses that donat-
ed items were: Faye's of Jasper, Brown's
Flowers and Gifts, and Jasper Hardware.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office
(HCSO) and the Jasper Police Department
provided several hours of services and sup-
port also.
The purpose of the program was to urge
parents and grandparents to take back their
community from the gradual invasion of
alcohol, drug and tobacco related activities.
Guest speaker HCSO Sgt. Emily Lump-
kin made a compelling plea for the citizens


to stand up and be counted, and to do their
best in the battle for the future of our young
people.
Charles Ward offered direction and hope
with a firm foundation on which to make
choices and the necessity of adults setting
the right example. The cost of doing noth-
ing is way more than any of us are willing
to pay, he said.
Brittany Sanchez ended the program
with an inspirational dance interpretation
of "Now Behold the Lamb," which had a
very moving effect on the entire audience.
The Coalition appreciates all the con-
cerned parents, volunteers, booth operators
and young people that attended the Fest.
This is one step in the right direction.
For more information about the Coali-
tion call Grace McDonald, Director, at 938-
4911 or 792-9388.

l[ LISpS.
shlDip By Erica Blackshear -.third grade,
FrII l Central Hamilton Elementary
The day after Halloween my mama and I.
went shopping in Lake City. We didn't real-
l/Bun, ize how much.time had passed. We hurried
,law. up to finish shopping so we could get out of
Fru, that store and get. home. Finally out of the
MI MI:l store we began the long trip home. There
was still time enough for us to get home and
do what we had to' do before everyone else
got home.

We had no idea what was happening. The
car gave one last jerk then came to,- a com-
plete stop.
We got out and lifted the hood. Mama
said that would let people passing know
that we needed help. No one stopped and if
was getting late..
Mama decided wve'd better call inm daddy.
S She, kept getting an operatorwho told her
that the number she was dialing was not in
.service.
.She decided we could tak6 a short cut
through the woods and if w'e hurried we


could still get home before dark. So we start-
ed walking. We had gone that way.many
times, but suddenly everything. looked'
strangely different. We seemed to be walk-
ing in circles, when suddenly it got so darkl
we couldn't even see each other.
All of a sudden it began to get light again
but there was fog everywhere We could see
that we were in a graveyard. A dead black,
cat with large green eves and long red teeth!
. :was lying there glaring up at us.
I jumped on my mama's back and she:
took off like a whirl wind. She didn't stop:
running until we were back where started
from.
We got back in the car shaking ,with fear..
Would you believe that the car started up
like nothing had happened?
We drove home and tried to act calm be-
catise we decided rnot to tell the family. But
that was the scariest night that we will nev-
er forget
The bright after Hallo6veen turned out to:
be worse than anm Halloween ['ve ever seen'
or e\ve hope to see.

more closely follows other traffic regula-
tions. The alternately flashing yellow
lights mean "caution" to other motorists
because the bus is preparing to stop. The
flashing red lights and stop arm mean
"stop." Motorists are required to stop at
least 200 feet from a stopped bus that is
displaying flashing red lights and stop
arm.
One of the most common bus driver
complaints is that other motorists fre-
quently violate the school bus stop law.
Sometimes the drivers are not fully alert
and pass a stopped school bus. This is a


very dangerous situation for the children,
especially the younger ones who may not
be watching traffic as closely as they
should.
Guest speakers during were Daisy
Vickers (RN Supervisor for School
Health), Greg Godwin (Clerk of Court),
and David Goolsby (Property Appraiser),
as well as representatives from Jasper
Auto, Jasper Hardware, NAPA of Jasper,

Things parents should know

about school bus safety


School buses are the safest form of high-
way transportation.
The most dangerous part of the school
bus ride is getting on and off the bus.
Pedestrian fatalities account for approxi-
mately three times as many school bus-re-
lated fatalities, when compared to school
bus occupant fatalities.
The "Danger Zone" is the area on all
sides of the bus where children are in the
most danger of not being seen by the dri-
ver (10 feet in front of the bus where the
driver may be too high to see a child, 10
feet on either side of the bus where a child


may be in the driver's blind spot, and the
area behind the bus).
Half of the pedestrian fatalities in school
bus-related crashes are children between
five and seven years old.
Young children fare most likely to be
struck because they hurry to get on and off
the bus, act before they think, have little
experience with traffic; assume motorists
will see them and will wait for them to
cross the street, and don't always stay
within the bus driver's sight.

Things kids should know about bus safety
Arrive at the bus stop five minutes early and stay in safe place away from the street.
Stand at least five giant steps away from the edge of the road. The bus driver and oth-
ers cannot see you if you are standing closer than 10 feet to the bus.
If something falls under or near the bus, tell the driver and
never try to pick it up yourself. A *
Wait until the bus stops, look for the bus safety lights, I '
wait for the doors to open and for the driver to say it's okay .N t.?' ..
before stepping on to 'the bus.
Be careful that clothing with drawstrings and book bags --.
with straps or dangling objects do not get caught in
the handrail or door when exiting the bus. *l
When you get on or off the bus, look left, right,
and left again before you enter or. cross the street.
Stay in your seat and sit quietly so that the dri- -
ver is not distracted.
' If you have seat belts on your school bus, be ,
sure to learn to use the seat belt correctly.

Fresh water fishing regulations

What's best for your area?


By: Bob Wattendorf
It's 'a real balancing act to try to decide
whether we need more rules or less rules,
stricter rules or more lenient rules to deliv-
er what Florida anglers want here in the
best recreational fishery in the world.'
Florida Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's (FWC) Division of Freshwater Fish-'
eries management's overall mission is to
manage, enhance and preserve Florida's
freshwater aquatic life for public benefit.
Our day to day objective, is to provide op-
timum-sustained use of these resources.
The balancing act results from "opti-
mum" meaning different things to differ-
ent people, so we try to find out what the
local public wants from the resource and
provide it to them in appropriate locations.
For instance, in some places people may
want a trophy bass fishery, even if all the
fish have to be released. In others, they
may be more interested in a bream and cat-
fish fishery that provides a' lot of fish to
take home for dinner. In making these de-
cisions, we must ensure we manage the re-
source, not only for current demands, but
always with an eye to the future, so the re-
source can be sustained over the long haul.
We also examine the use of the fishery
via creels (surveys of anglers to determine,
how many fish they are catching and how
many anglers are using the resource how
often). From that we determine if the pop-
ulation is being over-fished or remaining
stable. Remember, native freshwater fish


species have relatively short life spans, and
.natural' mortality often exceeds angling
mortality, so allowing some harvest is of-
ten good for the resource and does not ad-
versely affect its sustainability. If harvest
needs to be regulated, this is normally han-
dled by creel limits, while size limits can
help ensure fish have an opportunity to
spawn at least once before they are caught,
or help create higher-quality fisheries,
with more large fish.
The second issue is public use and social
perception. In the case of spider rigs, as
long as creel limits prevent these anglers
from taking more fish than other anglers
and still protects the fishery, should the
state regulate how an angler takes them?
As recreational fishing technology con-
tinues to improve and some anglers revert
back to what they consider to be more
purist techniques, such as fly fishing from
a kayak, this question is bound to come up
more frequently. So, as we weigh the op-
tions, we are interested in knowing what's
best for your area.
The FWC wants to hear from our stake-
holders, and one way you can provide
feedback is to participate in online sur-
veys. The question of spider rigs is fea-
tured at MyFWC.com/Fishing.
Each year, FWC staff evaluates proposed
changes to hunting and freshwater fishing
regulations. Changes supported by staff
are submitted for consideration at the
Commission meetings.

Teach kids to be good sports on

the field and in the game of life


Whether your child plays
football, soccer, tennis,
baseball, or some other
sport, make sure they're not
just out there to win but to
learn the lessons they'll
need to make it through life:'
how to be good sports and
have respect for them-
selves, coaches, teammates
and competitors.
An online program called
STAR Sportsmanship
teaches positive, behaviors
in an interactive learning
format. The lessons from
the program can be used by
parents as they teach their
children how to behave on
the sports field.
The STAR principle of
sportsmanship teaches four
simple steps to evaluate
their behavior. When faced
with a conflict, children
should think through the S-
T-A-R:

Stop when it's time to
make a sportsmanship deci-
sion.
Think how your actions
could affect you, your team
and your opponents.
Act right away to show
good sportsmanship.
Replay your actions in
your mind and decide if
you showed good sports-
manship.
Parents are encouraged to
talk with their children
about the ranting and rav-
ings of professional athletes
they see on television. Ask
their child how the athlete


looks when being a poor
sport. Could his behavior
hurt someone else or make
the game less enjoyable?
How should he or she have
acted? What would you
have done in that situation
and would that be the right,
behavior?
Some of the same ques-
tions apply when talking
about steroid use.

the health of a tree. Unlike
trees growing in a forested
environment, urban trees
are not typically planted in
an optimal environment for
root growth and mineral
uptake. Usually, urban en-
vironments are harsher
with poor soil conditions
and large fluctuations in
moisture and temperature.
Applying mulch can help
reduce the stress of such
conditions through these
benefits:
Helping to maintain soil
moisture with less evapora-
tion;
Reducing the number of
weeds;
Providing insulation by
keeping soil cooler in the
summer and warmer in the
winter;
Protecting from damage
caused by lawn equipment
such as weed-eaters and
lawn mowers; and
Improving soil fertility,
aeration, and drainage.
, Mulches are either organ-
ic or inorganic material
mixtures that are placed
over the soil surface
around the base of a tree.
Mixtures consisting of vari-
pus types of stone, rock,

pulverized rubber, and oth-
er materials are labeled as
inorganic. Because these
types of mixtures do not
decompose, they need re-
plenishing less often. How-
ever, this also means they
do not improve soil struc-
ture, provide nutrients, or
add organic materials to
the soil. Inorganic mulches
do still provide other bene-
fits such as insulation, and
protection.
Organic mulches consist
of wood chips, pine nee-
dles, bark, leaves, and other
products derived from
plants. These. mulches de-
compose, thus are very
beneficial in improving soil
quality by replenishing nu-
trients. They do however
require more maintenance
because decomposition cre-
ates the need to replenish
more often.
In order for mulch to be
beneficial, it must be ap-
plied correctly.
"All things in modera-
tion should be a homeown-
er's mulching motto," says
Skiera. "As beneficial as
mulch.is, too much can be,
harmful in more ways than
one."

Too much mulch can cre-

mulching tips to landscape
like the pros:
Thin is better. Apply a
two- to four-inch layer of
mulch unless a drainage
problems exist then a thin-
ner layer is recommended.
Do not add mulch if there is
already a sufficient layer.
Instead, rake the old mulch
to break up any matted lay-
ers and refresh the appear-
ance.
No volcano mulching.
Avoid placing mulch
against the tree trunks. If
mulch is already piled
against the stems or tree
trunks, pull it back several
inches so that the base of
the trunk -and the root
crown are exposed.
Mulch out to the tree's
drip line or beyond if possi-
ble.

Gail Stout, Janice
Williams and their mother,
Mrs. Gordon Simmons,
spent several days in the
mountains sightseeing and
visiting with Curtis and
Wilma Marlow in
Franklin, NC. This annual
trip is always a fun time
for them. It rained one day
but even that did not
dampen their spirits. They
spent one day visiting
Cherokee and Bryson City,
visiting the corn maze and
the Pumpkin Patch, the
Cherokee Reservation and
shopping. Curtis and
Wilma will be returning to
their home in Hamilton
County soon. Janice said
the scenery was beautiful.

ly now at the Supervisors

I hope everyone will turn

ans on Wednesday, Nov. 8,
in White Springs, when De-
lores Howell coordinates
our Veterans Day Parade at
1:30 p.m. Come out, wear
your red, white, and blue,

vorite holiday of the entire
year, will be coming up

There were a number of'
Halloween events held in
our area over the weekend.
The Laws had their annual
Halloween gathering on
Saturday, Oct. 28, and .I
know-that a good time was


had "by'"all. appreciateae
Tammy Law calling to in-
vite us, but I made plans
for myself, Laura Leigh
and her friend, .Riley
Smithy of Lake City, to at-
tend the Ghost Tour held in
historic Monticello on Sat-,
urday. Monticello is a very
beautiful and historic
town, and very, spooky at
night with the big moss fes-
tooned oaks draping every
street we traveled.
Also, on Saturday, De-
lores and Rick Howell en-
tertained a number of rela-
tives and friends with a
fantasticc" Halloween
gathering at the lovely
Howell home. Party goers,
young and old, enjoyed a,
wide array 'of games,
hayrides, delicious food
and just a ton of Halloween
fun. I know everyone en-
joyed themselves im-
mensely and' look forward
to next year's gathering.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to Carolyn and'Sue Bur-,
kett, and Jimmie Crews of
Jasper, on the loss of their.
paternal aunt, Verna "Bub-
bie" Burkett Hall of Samp-
son, Ala. Mrs. Hall visited
here in Jasper on a number
of occasions where she was
well and favorably known.
The family has the prayers
of this community.


On Oct. 1, Rosa Lee Fish-
er turned 89, and, at her re-
quest, she had a big family.
party with all her loving
family members surround-
ing her at her home in
White Springs. Relatives
traveled from far and near
to wish this special lady a
very happy birthday who
is still "very spry" for her
age. We wish Rosa Lee
Fishl' many more' iappy'
birthdays. She is a treasure
to family and friends wh$
know and love her. I hope
she is able, once again, to
ride in the annual White
Springs Christmas Parade
on Saturday, Dec. 9.
Rev. and Mrs. Thompson
(Ron and Jeanie), were
honored on Sunday, Oct.
29, with a special pastor

As CFO, Gallagher imple-

protect themselves in finan-

- j l ,: _, ,... ,.. .1 ,an .'i l .- >*.' *


By Pam Campbell
If you can't see it, is it still there? Do we have to see
something to know it is there? Someone who is blind
still knows there are things around them trees, animals,
sky, people, everything we see. They cannot see them,
but they know they are there. They can feel them, sense
them, hear them, people tell them about them, they can
picture it in their minds. Think of the many places in the
world we read about or hear about on the news where
we have not been. We have not seen them, but we prob-
ably believe they are there. None of us have been to the
moon, yet we see it every night. We believe it is there.
We cannot see the wind, but we know it is there. We can
feel it blow our hair, we can see it blowing the trees.
Though we cannot see the wind, it is still there.
I wonder if you cannot see something, do you
still believe it is there? Believing God for an an-
swer to prayer is like that. You have to ask God
for what you need. Then you have to have faith to
believe God will answer your prayer. You cannot
see the answer or how in the world the answer
will come, but if you have faith, you know God
will answer. You have to believe without seeing
that God will answer, just as He promises in His
word. In the Bible, we read these words: "Do not
be anxious about anything, but in everything, by
prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present
your requests to God." Philippians 4:5-7. If we
know the Lord, we know we can pray and God
will answer.
It is the same with believing in God. Most of us
have not actually seen God, yet we believe He ex-
ists. We feel His presence. We know He is with us
always, we talk to Him, and He answers. "Whom
having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now
ye see FAm not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy
unspeakable and full of glory." l1eter 1:8 We see
His love and His hand in all of creation. We know
He is real. We love Him. We believe His word.
We believe He answers prayer because He says
He does, and we have seen Him answer prayer.
other times in our lives and in other peoples' lives.
Many times my family and I sit by a beautiful
:waterfall'where we have a permanent campsite in
the Smoky Mountains, a place we can come and
go as God allows. We all enjoy just watching the
water or reading book after book, times of prayer, .A
times of drawing, writing, crafting, talking with
others, -cooking out. But most of all, we enjoy just
relaxing and listening to the sounds of the river
and waterfall. One night my daughter and I were
sitting as we have so many times, watching the
waterfall as the sun began to set, and it began to
get dark. We continued to sit there, watching not
only the waterfall but several little otters scampering in
the water below. I said to her, "I wish it would not get
dark because then we can't see the waterfall." My
daughter looked at me and said, "Yes mama, but you
can still hear it."
I have thought about that so often since then. She was
so right. We sat there for quite some time after darkness
had fallen and listened. We could not see that Waterfall,
but we could hear it just as we had before night came.
The Lord spoke to me that night and continues to re-

Is it there?
mind me what He tell us in His word. "So then faith
cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
Romans 10:17.
Just as sure as that waterfall was still there, even in
the dark, God will surely answer our prayers. You know,
when we went to bed that night, we could still hear the
waterfall, such a soothing, relaxing sound, and sure
enough the sun came up the next day. When we looked
out the window, there was the glorious waterfall for all
to see! When we have faith to believe God for an an-
swer to prayer, the answer will come, and we will know,
we will see, we will be able to share the good news that
God has answered prayer that others may be able to see.
God will always answer our prayers. We must have
faith and believe. Sometimes the answers might not be

the answers we are looking for or the answers we want
them to be, but God knows the best for each of our
lives, and He will answer. "And all things, whatsoever
ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."'
Matthew:22 When you have something happening in
your life where you really need.God's help, you need a
real answer from heaven, do you worry first and then
pray, or do you, remember to pray and leave the worry at
the feet of Jesus? If you learn to build up your faith
when things in your life are going smoothly, by hearing

the word of God, then when things in your life get
bumpy, you will have the needed faith to trust the Lord
to take care of the situation and lean on Him, and forget
the worry. Worry will not help, but Jesus will! Jesus
speaks to us about worry in the Bible in Matthew 6:27-
28: "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to
his life? And why do you worry .about clothes? See how
the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin."
We do not need to worry, we must learn to have faith.
How is it that we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the
word of God.
Many times we may not be where we are hearing the
word of the Lord. Maybe we are sick and can't get to
church, or are in a place where the word of the Lord is
not being preached so we can hear it. In order to have
faith, we must hear the word of the Lord.
I have found I need to hear the word of the Lord
to build my faith daily, not just at church. Recent-
ly, instead of just reading the Bible to myself and
studying it, I have begun reading the word aloud,
just the Lord and I. The word says our faith comes
from hearing the word, so if you read it aloud, you
are really hearing it, literally! I find myself under-
standing more, and hearing more of what the Lord
is saying to me, Whether we read the word aloud
or silently, or have someone else read it to us, or
are hearing the word preached, the important thing
is to pay attention to what God is saying in His
word. He speaks to each of us through His word.
When we are praying for a specific need, we
may not know how in the world the answer will
come, it may look impossible to us, but remember,
with God, nothing is impossible. We just need to
have that simple childlike faith and believe. We
can't see the answer, we can't see faith, but we
know if we hear the word of God, we receive the
faith we need. We know if the answer to our
prayer or prayers is there, we just can't see it, just
like we could not see the waterfall after dark. But,
that did not mean it was not there. We could hear
it, and that told us that yes, it was still there. We
hear the word of God, we have faith and though
we cannot see the answer, we know it is there. "So
then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
word of God." Romans 10:16-18. We don't get to
sit by the waterfall as often as we would like, but
when we do, it is a joy, and a privilege. Like most
of you, when I am not in the mountains by the wa-
terfall, I must find somewhere else to pray, some-
| where else to get alone with the Lord, to rest, to
relax.
We all need to do this, and we can. It can be as
simple as in our own back or front yard, or in a
room alone with the TV off, or one of my favorite
places is outside in a field looking up into the beautiful
star filled sky with a sliver of a moon shining. What an
awesome place to talk to the creator of the universe,
God our father.
Take time each new day as you awaken to thank God
for another day, and find the time to read His word so
tyou will build up your faith. Remember, faith comes
from hearing the word of God. Next time you pray, re-
member to have faith, and even though you don't see
the answer, always know the answer is there.

- Can you


see


By Pam Campbell .
If you can't see it, is it still there? Do
we have to see something to know it is
there? A person who is blind still knows
there are things around them trees, ani-
mals, sky, people, everything we see. They
cannot see them, but they know they are
there. They can feel them, sense them,
hear them, people tell them about them.
They can picture it in their minds.
Think of the all the places in the world
we read about, we have not seen them but
we believe they are there. None of us have
been to. the moon, yet we see it every
night, we believe it is there. I wonder if
you can not see something, do you still
believe it is there?


Believing God for an answer to prayer
is like that. You have to ask God for what
you need and then you have to have faith
to believe God will answer your prayer.
Y6u have to believe without seeing that
God will answer.
It is the same with believing in God.
Most of us have not seen God, yet we be-
lieve He is real. We love Him. We believe
His word. We believe He answers prayer
because He says He does.
Many times my family and I sit by a
beautiful waterfall in the Smoky Moun-
tains. One night my daughter and I were
sitting watching the waterfall and it began
to get dark. I said to her, "I wish it would
not get dark because then we can't see the


waterfall." My daughter looked at me and
said, "Yes, mama, but you can still hear
it." She was right, we could not see that
waterfall, but we could hear it just as we
had before it got dark. The Lord reminded
me whaHe tells us in His word "So then
faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by
the word of God." Romans 10:17 Just as
sure as that waterfall was still there even
in the dark, God will surely answer our
prayers. God will always answer our
prayers. We must have faith and believe.
Sometimes God may answer our prayers
in a different way than we expect, but He
will always answer! God knows the best
for each of our lives. He tells us in the
Bible how to pray "And all things, what-
!


soever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye
shall receive." Matthew:22. How is it that
we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the
word of God.
The Bible says our faith comes from
hearing the word. If you can read it out
loud or have someone read it to you, then
you will really be hearing Hs word! He
talks to each of us through His word, even
kids!
We can't see the answer, we can't see
faith, but we know that if we hear the
word of God, we receive the faith we
need.
Next time you pray, have faith, and
even though you don't see the answer, al-
ways know that the answer will be there.

Be. Merciful, 0 Lord

For we

The Bible tells us we
all have sinned and have.
come short of the glory
of God.
And, although we
should try to.refrain from.
sinning, it is somewhat
consoling to know that
none of us are perfect. If
we are repentant for our
sins and have asked God
for His forgiveness, we LPv'I ..1
shouildfn'tbetoo harsh on d .
ourselves nor dwell on
our past transgressions.
Sin is a rejection of
God's love; however, our
Heavenly Father has giv-
en us a means to rid our-. '

that -e try to refrain from sinning in the future. In the Bible, Psalmh1 is a prayer
of repentance that asks the Lord to be merciful to us as sinners; and in order for us
to be repentant, we have to admit to ourselves that we have sinned. We often try to
justify our bad behavior in order to avoid some corrective action or punishment.
However, we,should keep in mind that justifying our inappropriate actions does not
necessarily nullify them. Most all of the great people in the Bible committed some
wrongdoing, and still, God, was able to use them. Perhaps God will use us for His
good, even though we have sinned.

al obesity, is perhaps the greatest factor
yndrome. The more obese a person, is,
ch can prove to be the start of a very
vicious downward spiral. As the 'role of
insulin is linked directly to removing
glucose from the blood to use as a
source of energy, an obese person who
is resistant to insulin needs the
aforementioned energy all the more. In


addition, the more obese a person gets, the harder it will be to lose that weight if
and when they decide to do so. If they allow their bodies to become resistant to
insulin, they will suffer greatly from a lack of energy when they attempt to shed
the weight.
High blood pressure. High blood pressure has long been linked to diabetes and,
when combined with other medical conditions, can increase the body's resistance
to insulin. In general, the higher a person's blood pressure is, the more likely they
are to be insulin- resistant. In fact, possible evidence as to the impact of high blood
pressure on insulin resistance is seen in American Diabetes Association reports
that state at least 40 percent of people with diabetes have high blood pressure.
Abnormal cholesterol levels. Insulin-resistant people typically have low levels
of HDL, which is commonly referred to as "good cholesterol." Few might be
aware that certain fats are actually good for the body. HDL cholesterol contains
those good fats, meaning the higher a person's HDL, the better. However, high
LDL ("bad cholesterol"), which often is the case for those resistant to insulin,
increases a person's chance of heart attack or stroke.
How is Insulin Resistance Syndrome Diagnosed and Treated?
Oftentimes, a diagnosis rests on a doctor's suspicion. Since there is no stantlard
test for determining insulin resistance, a doctor's (and even a patient's) suspicion
or intuition: often play an integral role in diagnosis. What patients nust remember
is to be as honest and knowledgeable as possible. For instance, family history can
determine a person's likelihood of being insulin- resistant. If apparent or sibling
has type 2 diabetes, or suffers from hypertension or cardiovascular disease, then
the patient could have a greater susceptibility to insulin resistance syndrome.
In addition, other possible indicators do exist. For example, an apple-shaped
body, where there is more fat around the waist than around the hips, could indicate
a person is resistant to insulin. Age can also play a role, as those over 40 can be
more susceptible.
Treatment for insulin resistance syndrome is most often a variety of medications.
Doctors can prescribe medications that make a person's body more sensitive to
insulin. Also, doctors typically prescribe drugs to lower cholesterol or others
designed to treat the conditions that often lead to insulin resistance syndrome.
Perhaps the best treatment, however, is pretreatment by preventing the onset of
the conditions in the first place. Exercising, maintaining a healthy weight and
enjoying a healthy diet are the best ways to avoid both-insulin resistance syndrome
and diabetes. '
