can distract students, cause their grades to suf-

In an effort to reduce these numbers, the
Hamilton and. Columbia County Health De-

exciting to our community. In the next few
weeks a new mobile dental clinic will roll into

dental services to children in our area.

For years PotashCorp
has offered the DOF as-
sistance during wild
fires. In 2001 the Mines
Services Foremen,
Chuck Adams and Gary
Harrington, decided
that the employees
needed special training
to safely and successful-
ly assist the DOF.
The heavy equipment
operators were accus-


tomed to working in
swamps and wet areas,
but were not familiar
with fire behavior. On
the other hand, the DOF
understood the behavior
of fire and how to fight
it, but they didn't have
the heavy tractors that
were capable of entering
and clearing' deep
swamps and wet areas.
So a cooperative rela-
tionship was born and
the PCS Wildfire Fire
Fighting Team was cre-
ated.
Since that time the
DOF has offered annual
training for fire fighting,
fire behavior and the
weather's impact on fire
to the heavy equipment
volunteers in the Mines
Services group. PCS has
purchased additional

PCS-White Springs'
investment in fire pro-
tection has provided
major benefits to local
communities as evi-
denced by their role in
the Bugaboo Wildfires
last year, as well as their
recent response to a
small wildfire in the
Genoa area. The PCS-

Eight traits successful


people have in common


Award-winning com-
municator and success
analyst Richard St. John
has researched and dis-
sected what truly makes
a person successful. He
has interviewed success-
ful people from all walks
of life, gathering mil-
lions of pieces of invalu-
able information.
After a decade of in-
depth research and care-
ful analysis, St. John ulti-
mately identified eight
common traits shared by
successful people, which
form the foundation for
success, wealth and
greatness. And the best
part? They are easily ap-
plied to our everyday
lives!
Passion. Discover


what you love to do and
pursue it. Chase love,
not money, and the
money will follow.
Work. You must work
very hard; all successful
people do. But when
you love what you're
doing, it doesn't feel like
work.
Focus. Successful peo-
ple say you must focus
on one thing and one
thing only. Develop the
ability to ignore distrac-
tions and concentrate.
Push. Push yourself
through obstacles such
as self-doubt. Push to
achieve the impossible.
Ideas. Come up with
ideas to solve problems
and take advantage .of
opportunities. Anybody


can be creative!
Improve. Successful
people don't rest on
their laurels. They're al-
ways looking for ways
to improve themselves
and get better at what
they do.
Serve. You must serve
something of value to
other people. Focus on
the people you serve
and listen to what they
have to say.
Persist. Don't cave-in
to adversity! Persist
through the rough
times, failures, criticism
and mistakes.

M maybe you came by and sat
Quietly by Brother Hill's
JL side in his last days. Or
maybe you even read to him from
his favorite Psalm. Or maybe you
were one of many that came to us af-
ter his passing to offer a shoulder to
cry on or an arm to hold on to, to
gain strength from. Or maybe you
were quietly in the background of-
fering up prayers on our behalf be-
cause you know and understand our
gnef. Whatever you did for us and
our family, please know how much


The family of Susie Christie
would like to thank lasper
and the surrounding com-
munities for the cards, calls, flowers
and kindnesses bestowed upon us
during our recent loss. Although
Mom had moved away from Jasper
some six years ago, her heart was
permanently implanted in the rural
community there for she knew one
day she would be returning home
one last time.
Special thanks to Big Bend Hos-

Norris Notes


By Lillian Norris


We are glad to wel-
come Candice Pike back
to the office of the Jasper
News. Candice was in-
jured in a very bad car
accident. She is back at
her desk, doing well
considering the serious-
ness of the accident (a
deer in the road) still
having some pain with
certain movements, but
on the job. Blessings to
Candice and thanks for
all you do.
Abby Mickler cele-
brated her birthday last
week at a bowling party
at Thunder Alley Bowl-
ing Center in Live Oak.
She and her friends en-
joyed bowling and eat-
ing hot dogs. Abby
chose a giant chocolate
chip cookie decorated
with yellow and purple
flowers as her birthday
cake. Abby .enjoyed
opening her many won-
derful gifts from her
friends. Everyone had a
great time celebrating
her birthday. Belated
happy birthday Abby,
and many more.
Remember: Relay for
Life the weekend of


April 11 through April
12, at the Hamilton
County High School
football field beginning
at 6 p.m. on the 11th.
You must have a loved
one, family or friend
who has been affected,
we need your help in
supporting the Cancer
Society to find a cure, or
stop, cancer. Penny
Mickler is working hard,
with her committee
members, to make this a
success, let us help her. I
am. sure you know
someone to contact and
offer your help, call Pen-
ny, or others involved, if
you can't think of any-
one else, call me or call
the office of Dr. Ben
Norris, they are actively
involved in this move-
ment.
Countywide Sister-
hood will be meeting on
Tuesday, at New Hope,
with a speaker from Op-
eration Shoe Box. Come
and bring a salad or
dessert to share. Hope
you can make it.
Our sympathy goes
out this week to the fain-
ilies of Judy Drury and


Betty Kate Haskins
Deas. They have both
been very important in
the life of our communi-
ty and will be missed by
all who knew them.
Hope to hear from you
all soon.

Students learn about


Submitted by
Greg Hicks
Agriculture is a con-
stantly changing, com-
plex industry, striving
to meet the needs and
concerns of its con-
sumers and customers.
Food and fiber are es-
sential to everyday liv-
ing and we would like
to solute the men and
women who provide it
not only to America, but
the world.
In celebration of Na-
tional Agriculture Day,
fourth grade students
from North, Central and
South Hamilton Ele-


mentary Schools partici-
pated in Youth Ag Day
on March 20, at the
Hamilton County Are-
na. This event was coor-
dinated by myself, Dan
Buchanan (Hamilton
County Farm Bureau)
and 'Philip Pinello
(Hamilton County
School District).
Group leaders from
Hamilton County FFA
divided the approxi-
mately 135 students in
to small groups. The
group leaders guided
the students through
nine stations to learn
about agriculture in

The stations included
Landscape and Nursery
Production with Allen
Tyree and Roebuck's

Burns and Selph Farms,
and Phosphate and Fer-
tilizer Production with

After the students ex-
plored each station,
Buchanan presented an
overview of the food
and fiber chain "From

The students, teachers
and volunteers ate a de-
licious meal of grilled
hotdogs, hamburgers,
chips and drinks pro-
vided by PCS Phos-

David Goolsby Jr.
This program was de-
signed to be a fun day,
as well as an education-
al day for the children.


However, our main
purpose was to have
each child leave with
the understanding of
how important agricul-
ture is to Hamilton
County.
The Hamilton County
Extension Service
would sincerely like to
thank the principals,
teachers, volunteers and
all others that helped
make this day a success.

Dig Safely.
If you plan to dig or move, call 1-800-432-4770 at least two days before
digging so the Utilities Protection Center (UPC) can mark underground
utility lines.
If you do not call and you hit an underground line, you could be hurt or
killed. You may also be held liable for costly damages.
Here are some simple excavation safety steps:
SSurvey and Mark Survey proposed excavation areas and
mark the dig sites in white paint
4 Call Before You Dig It is the law! At least two working days
prior to starting work 1-800-432-4770
4 Wait the Required Time Allow the UPC the time to locate
and mark the lines.
4 Respect the Marks Maintain visibility of the marks and
safely follow them when digging
4 Dig with Care Hand excavate within 24 inches of each side
of the lines
If Your Equipment Contacts a Gas Line:
* Leave equipment; don't turn off engines or generators.
* Warn others and leave the area quickly.
* Do not operate any gas pipeline valves or stop the flow of gas.
* Leave the excavation open.
* In a natural gas emergency, call 911, then the City of Jasper.

Fishing for spawning bass


By jay Yelas
Those against fishing
for bass during the
spawn contend that it
disrupts the breeding cy-
cle, resulting in fewer
fish in the future. How-
ever, studies indicate
that fishing during the
spawn, even if specifical-
ly for trophies, does not
appear to harm the bass
populations. Obviously,
taking a spawn-ready fe-
male from the bed will, if
she dies, reduce the
numbers of young bass
produced. But bass pro-
duce thousands of
spawn every year, leav-
ing the surplus millions
of juvenile fish to be-
come food for other
species so numbers
aren't an issue. Further
research has shown that
if a big female hasn't
spawned yet and is re-
leased in good shape,
then it is likely she will
spawn.
Contrary to some be-
liefs, a bedding bass is
not easy to catch, partic-
ularly the big females. It
is true that the small
males are often aggres-
sive in their guardian
duties, but the trophy
fish is very difficult to
catch. To catch fish dur-
ing this time of year, I
use two methods, de-
pending on whether or
not the water is clear
enough to see the beds.


If the water is reason-
ably clear, I look for
hard-bottomed coves, a
place where the bottom
will be mostly pea gravel
and chunk rock. Once
there, I get on the deck of
my boat and watch for
the mostly round nests,
areas that have been
cleared off by bass fan-
ning their tails. Once I
spot a nest, I either look
for a bass or its shadow.
Once I spot the fish be it
a small male or a large
female I use my spin-
ning reel, spooled with
10-pound Berkley Tri-
lene 100% Fluorocarbon
line (especially if the fish
have already been pres-
sured) or a casting reel
spooled with 17- or 20-
pound 100% Fluorocar-
bon, and cast a white,
Texas-rigged Berkley
PowerBait Flippin' Tube,
with the hook barely
piercing the skin of the
bait.
I position my boat far
enough away from the
nest so as to not spook
the bass, but close
enough that I can still see
what is going on. After
casting just beyond the
nest (if the fish hasn't al-
ready gone for the bait), I
hop the tube into the
nest, working it through
the nest area searching
for the "sweet spot."
The sweet spot for
some unknown reason -


is an area of the nest that,
when a bait reaches it,
will cause the fish to at-
tack. It may take several
minutes or several hours
to get the bass to react,
but when it does, it will
turn itself sideways and
scoop the bait off the bot-
tom in an effort to re-
move the intruder from
the nest not always to
eat it. Because the hook
is barely in the bait, it
will be easier to set the
hook.
If the first approach
doesn't work, I like to
turn to a dark colored
Berkley Gulp! Lizard
and try the same tactics.
However, unlike the
white tube, the dark
lizard is harder to see in
the water. If the water is
too murky to see the
nests, try Carolina rig-
ging in the shallows.
And if you're after small-
mouth bass, look for un-
derwater cover to hold
bedding fish.
Fishing the spawn can
be fun, difficult and re-
warding all at the same
time. Just be sure to prac-
tice catch and release so
that other anglers will
have the opportunity to
enjoy the fishing, too.

is the reigning FL W Tour
Angler of the Year and a
former Bassmaster Clas-
sic champion from Cor-
valis, Ore.


The Relay for Life will be held on
Friday, April 11, at the Hamilton
County High School Football Field.
Kick-off will be held at 6 p.m. with
a Survivor's Lap. Survivors need to
register at 5:30 p.m. to pick up their
special survivors tee-shirt.
This year's theme is "Era of
Hope." Ve will have lots of music


from the different eras of time. We
want to celebrate those who have
won the battle, remember the ones
who have lost the battle, and fight
back to find a cure.
If you know of anyone that is a
survivor, encourage them to come
out on April 11 so they can be hon-
ored.


WE'LL LOOK INTO IT RIGHT HERE!


A sense of adventure


by Peggy Boston
As I sit at my comput-
er typing this article, my
body truly longs for rest;
I ache everywhere. To-
day, we my daughter
and I decided to test our
sense of adventure. Ini-
tially, tI Loght, "Oh,
S yeah, I got this!" I was
sorely (no pun intended)
wrong.
The Step Up, Florida
program encourages
Floridians everywhere
to move somehow,
some way, get that body
moving. So they part-
nered with Suwannee
Health and Fitness in
Live Oak to offer free
classes and access to
gym equipment one


week in March. Today,
we took advantage of
that offer, but I think in
turn, we were truly tak-
en on an adventure we
will long treasure and
desire to repeat.

"large, the elderly, 'the
aerobically challenged?
You'd be dead in the wa-
ter! That class was amaz-
ing. It was challenging at
every level and to every
level of fitness.
As a runner, I look for-
ward to light days and
days with little or no im-
pact. Today, there was
no impact, but it was far
from a light workout.

Town Happenings


By Robert Townsend,
White Springs Town
Manager
The month of March
was a busy one for
White Springs. So
many wonderful events
that drew the crowds
into our shops, bed and
breakfasts, camp-
grounds and stores.
The 25th Annual
Florida Trails Associa-
tion three-day confer-
ence this past weekend
ended the month with a
big bang. At the Friday
night event Mayor
Joseph McKire present-
ed the Key to the Town
to the Florida Trail As-
sociation for nominat-
ing White Springs as
their first Gateway
Community. Then the
crowd settled in for
photographer John
Moran's Journal of
Light presentation.
There were people
everywhere enjoying
activities such as boat-
ing, canoeing, hiking,
camping, and of course,
eating the great local
food. I spoke with some
of our local business
owners who reported a
good month for sales,
and if I heard it once I
heard it a hundred
times, "I just love White
Springs and I can't wait
to come back."
I would like to take


just a moment to thank
the Stephen Foster State
Folk Cultural Center
Park Manager Ben Fau-
re for his dedication to
this community. Ben
has not only made re-
markable changes to
the Park, he also strives
to work with the local
groups like the Citizens
Support Organization
and the White Springs
Special Events Commit-
tee to bring quality
events to White
Springs. These events
like the ones this past
month help our local
economy by bringing
tourists to our town. I
must also thank a few
of Ben's staff Elaine
McGrath and Mitzi
Nelson for their con-
tinuing efforts and sup-
port of the town.
I attended the open
house for Lawrence
and Jeannette Udell .this
Saturday and must say
the Lord blessed them
with a wonderful fami-
ly. They pulled togeth-
er and helped to re-
build the Udell home
on Second Street and
the finished results are
beautiful. The fellow-
ship was great and the
food was the best
around. Tell Mr.
Lawrence he won't
have to worry about
falling off the bed in the


trailer any more!
Speaking of houses I
have noticed that
Yvonne Bryant has re-
stored her family home
on First Street. If I am
not mistaken Ms.
Bryant's home is listed
on the historic register
as being built in 1920.
It is a wonderful exam-
ple of early architectur-
al design in White
Springs. Congratula-
tions to Ms. Bryant for
restoring and protect-
ing such a beautiful
home.
At the April 8, Town
Council Meeting the
Council will hold. the
second and final read-
ing of Ordinance 03-08,
an ordinance declaring
the accumulation of
weeds, underbrush, un-
dergrowth, garbage,
waste and trash upon
real property a nui-
sance and providing for
the abatement thereof.
There will be a public
hearing at 6:45 p.m. on
April 8, in the town hall
meeting room for pub-
lic comment regarding
this ordinance.
The Council will con-
sider the Florida Com-
munity Trust grant and
will decide what prop-
erties to include in the
grant. There is also a
line item to consider
the proposed Town


Standard Operating
Guidelines and Evalua-
tion form. The Town
has engaged the con-
sulting firm of Quest
Consulting to update
the town's Policy and
Procedures and Stan-
dard Operating Guide-
lines." In addition, the
Council will consider
an agenda request sub-
mitted by citizen Joe
Griffin concerning en-
forcement of Town
codes.
Don't forget the An-
tique Tractor Show this
weekend, April 4
through April 6, at
Stephen Foster State
Folk Cultural Center -
it's always a great expe-
rience. I will keep you
informed after the
April Council Meeting.

A Long Life Starts With a Healthy Lifestyle


As the aging process progresses, most men begin making health a
priority. But many of the health problems both men and women encounter
as they age are the result of lifestyle choices they made when they were
younger and continued to practice as they got older. Simply put, what's
done to a body today will affect how it behaves tomorrow.
Fortunately, the human body has an amazing capacity to recuperate,
meaning it's never too late to make lifestyle changes that can make a
person's golden years more healthy and enjoyable. While the term
"lifestyle change" can seem overwhelming, many of these changes are far
easier to put into practice than it might seem.
Watch your weight. Obesity levels have exceeded, reached or are
approaching all-time highs in many developed nations. Obesity can be
especially harmful to adults approaching their senior years, as obesity
increases a person's risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and
heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things a person can do to
avoid the series of problems that men and women can encounter as they
get older. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) points
out that defining a healthy weight depends on a number of individual
factors. For example, age is a determining factor, as a healthy weight for
an individual at 45 might not be considered healthy when that individual
turns 60.
Because each person is unique, defining a healthy weight is something
that should be discussed on a case-by-case basis with a physician. Even if
a friend of the same age and similar body type has been given a healthy
weight, for instance, this doesn't mean that's a healthy weight for all
people of that age and body type. Past health history and physical activity
level are significant factors in determining a healthy weight, too.
Make dietary changes. To some, the thought of changing their diet is an
unwelcome one. Because food is such a big part of most people's lives,
this is often seen as the most difficult lifestyle change to make. However, a
series of subtle changes as opposed to a massive dietary overhaul can do
the trick.
While many people eat healthily during their three meals per day, it's the
in-between meals hours where diet often suffers the most. Snacks high in
saturated fat, such as potato chips, can be very unhealthy. By switching
snacks to a serving of fruit or vegetables, men and women can ensure
they're getting their recommended servings each day, and may be reducing
the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases as a result. The majority of
fruits and vegetables are low in fat and calories, and also provide essential
vitamins and minerals. For those unsure of how much fruit or vegetables
they should be eating each day, the CDC offers a fruits and vegetables
calculator on its Web site at www.cdc.gov.
Be more active. Becoming more physically active is something many
adults need to do. The CDC estimates that 50 percent of American men
and women do not get enough physical activity to provide health benefits.
Physicians recommend 30 minutes of daily, moderate physical exercise.
While finding the time each day can be a commitment, 30 minutes, the


Daily exercise is a valuable tool for men and women looking to get
and stay healthier.


length of a typical television sitcom, really is not much time at all.
Those who haven't been active.in a while need to ease back into
being physically active, perhaps starting with a daily walk on flat
ground and then gradually tailoring a routine that is more challenging
and beneficial as the body acclimates itself to daily activity. Again,
because every person is unique, it's best to consult a physician before
beginning any new exercise routine.
Recognize and deal with stress. Stress can be very harmful to all
men and women. The negative side effects of stress are both physical
and mental. Stress can lead to excess weight gain, which, as
previously mentioned, can increase the likelihood of heart disease,
stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Mentally, excess stress
affects mood, which can negatively impact relationships with friends,
family and coworkers.
While stress is a fact of life for most, both in their professional and
private lives, it's important to recognize that stress can be very
detrimental. Though here are no;guaranteed and foolproof ways to
reduce anid.manage stress, research has shown that exercise has
proven a reliable, source of stress reliefformany people.

AFTER EASTER


By Pam Campbell

I ast month we celebrated
Easter, the death and
resurrection of Jesus the
savior of the world. Now that
Easter has passed, do we still remember all
that Jesus did for us? He was beat and
bruised for our healing, he wore a crown of
thorns upon his head, he was hung on an
old rugged cross with huge, old rusty nails
through his hands and feet, he was pierced
in his side, he was denied water, he was spat
on, laughed at, ridiculed and so much more.
He endured all of the sickness and disease
and all of the sins for every man, woman,
boy and girl that has ever lived and ever
will live, he
literally gave his
all. God sent his
only son Jesus to
be the ultimate
supreme sacrifice,
because he loves all of
us so very much. We
know that Jesus rose
from the dead and sits
with God the father
interceding for us always. He is always
with us and he really wants us to '
understand how much we can depend
on him. That is why we need to learn
to trust in him, not just at Easter, but
all of the time.

So God is asking us to trust him, to
rely on his character, his ability, his
strength and his truth. Rely on God's
character, a God who cannot lie, who is
always faithful, who gave his son Jesus to
die for our sins, our creator, redeemer, our
father, our savior, our friend, our Lord. Yes,
that is the kind of character to rely on,
someone who is steadfast and true. In the
Bible we read in Hebrews 6:17-19 the
following promise: 6:17 "In the same way
God, desiring even more to show to the
heirs of the promise: the unchangeableness
of His purpose, interposed with an oath,
6:18 so that by twounchangeable things in
which it is impossible for God to lie, we
who have taken refuge would have strong
encouragement to take hold of the hope set
before us. 6:19 This hope we have as an
anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and
steadfast." You see when you put your trust
in God, you are putting it in one who cannot
lie, one who is your anchor, your hope, one
who is steadfast, we take refuge in this and
will find strong encouragement. We know
that if we rely on him we are relying on
truth as Jesus tells us this in John 14:6 Jesus
answered, "I am the way and the truth and
the life." He is the truth, he died on the
cross for us. We see in Ephesians 1:19 that
God has the strength we need to rely on.
"and his incomparably great power for us
who believe. That power is like the working
of his mighty strength, Jeremiah 17:7 "But
blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him. God asks us to
put our confidence in him.

How many of you have ever wondered
why bad things seem to happen to Christian
people? Have you ever felt like things in

your life were not going the right way?
When tragedy strikes someone that you
know, or makes the world news, do you find
it hard to trust? I know that sometimes
things happen to Christian people that we
don't understand. They may lose a loved
one, sometimes even a child and only God
knows why. Some I know have severe
illness in their bodies, though they pray and
love the Lord. I know some that seem to
always have some type of sickness attacking
them, but they still trust in the Lord. I have
had people ask me many
times why I have not
been healed, why I
don't just run and
jump and walk. I truly'
have asked God why
myself at times in the
past. I have learned
the simple A


truth
that I don't
know the
answers to
all of the
whys, but
God does.
Another
thing that I
have
learned is
that if I
trust in him,
it doesn't
really matter,'
whether I walk
or I don't, it
has nothing at
all to do with my
happiness, my joy,
my salvation. No
matter what'the
circumstance you
may find your or
a loved one in,
trust in God, he
will not fail you.
Remember, Romans 8:28 says
"And we know that all things
work together for good to them that love
God, to them who are the called according
to his purpose."

We must learn to trust in God regardless
of the circumstances. Jesus trusted his
father, God all the way to his death on the
cross and his resurrection. Sometimes we
may pray for something to happen the way
we want, and maybe we believe it is what
God wants, but still the answer may not be
the one we are looking for. There are times
when God answers our prayers and the
answer may be no. Those are times it is
especially important that we really learn to
trust in God.

As it says in Psalm 30:4 "Blessed is that
man that maketh the Lord his trust." They
have learned to trust. Have you learned to
put your confidence in the Lord, to trust
him, to rely on God's character, his strength,
his ability, to leave it all to God and not
Sbe afraid? When something bad
happens, when someone we love dies, or
a tragedy is in the news, when what we
pray for doesn't happen the way we want it
to, do we think God is not there, or that he
isn't listening, or doesn't care? God is
always there, he always cares about you, he
always hears you and he always answers
your prayers. Learn to trust in God, to rely
on him, he is your strength, he is your
salvation and he will always keep his
promises. When you feel sorrow that you
don't feel you can bear take it to Jesus.
"Casting all your care upon him: for he
careth for you." 1 Peter 5:7
The verse Isaiah 12:2 says "Surely God is
my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, is my strength and power."
Remember we are talking about trust,
trusting in God, our God that is faithful, that
cannot lie. He is our God who will never
leave us. He is God, we can have
confidence in God and totally rely on him. 1
John 4:16 "And so we know and rely on the
love God has for us. God is love. Whoever
lives in love lives in God, and God in him."
Next time something goes wrong, someone
you love dies or becomes ill, or you don't
feel well, or something happens on the news
that grieves you, or causes you to fear,
remember to Trust in the Lord. "Trust in the
Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine own understanding. In all thy ways
acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

Yes, Easter may have passed but Jesus
Lives today, be sure to remember Jesus, to
trust in him, he gave his ALL for you.

By Pam Campbell

Last month we celebrated
Easter, Jesus dying on the cross
and being raised from the dead.
Now that Easter is passed, how are
you doing with.trusting in him? We
need to remember all that Jesus did
for us and trust in him always.
Jesus was beat and bruised for our
healing, he wore a crown of thorns
upon his head, he was hung on an
old rugged cross with huge, old
rusty nails through his hands and
feet, he was pierced in his side, he
was denied water, he was spat on,
laughed at, ridiculed and so much
more. He endured all of the
sickness and disease and all of the
sins for every man, woman, boy
and girl that has ever lived and
ever will live, he literally gave his
all. God sent his only son Jesus to
be the ultimate supreme sacrifice,
because he loves all of us so very
much. We know that Jesus rose
from the dead and lives today. He
is always with us and he really
wants us to
understand
how much
we can
depend on .
him. That "
is why we
need to
learn to
him, not
just at
Easter,
but all of
the time.
How
many of
you can
think of
times that
you have
had to .
trust
somebody?
Trust is venr
important,
especially Nwhen it comes to
trusting in God. It should be 'er\
easy to rely on God. God cannot
lie, and he is always faithful. God
gave his son Jesus so that we can
be saved, he is our father, our
friend, and our Lord. Yes, that is
the one that we can put our trust in.
Jesus had to trust his father, God,
all the way through his death on
the cross and his resurrection. We
know that if we rely on the Lord
we are relying on truth as Jesus
tells us this in John 14:6 Jesus
answered, "I am the way and the
truth and the life." He is the truth.
"But blessed is the man who trusts
in the LORD, whose confidence is
in him. God asks us to put our
confidence and trust in him.
Have any of you kids ever
wondered why bad things happen?
Maybe you wonder why someone
that you know had to die, or why
they are sick, or why you are sick.
We need to learn to trust in God no
matter what is going on or what
happens. Sometimes you may pray
for something to happen a certain
way and it doesn't, that is a time to
learn to trust God. God always
answers our prayers, sometimes
the answer is just different than
what we expect. Whatever happens
in your life, now and as you get
older you need to learn to trust in
the Lord.

Have you learned to trust the
Lord, to leave it all to God and not
be afraid? When something bad
happens, or when what we pray for
doesn't happen the way we want it
to, do we think God is not there, or
that he isn't listening, or doesn't
care? God is always there, he
always cares about you, he always
hears you and he always answers
your prayers. Learn to trust in God,
he will always keep'his promises.
Remember we are talking about
trust, trusting in God, our God that
is faithful. He is our God who will
never leave us. "Trust in the Lord

While nainonall. reno\vned pltmaster Chis Lilly hardly needs more

"Nothing signal the coming of wnrrrn \ weather and sa~i "slow don n

These tips and recipes from Smith and Lill\ will help grilling enthusiasis
hit their ne\t gathering out of the park




LEAD OFF THE GRILLING SEASON '
WITH THESE SMART PLAYS
Practice Makes Perfect: Your grill mdy be a little rusty
from the off-season, so before 'ou begin grilling, make
sure it's in good shape. Scrub the grate with a long-
handled, stiff wire grill brush to remove any residual ,
food. Always discard any residual ashes from the grill
before cooking A thick layer of ashes will act as
insulation, affecting the distribution of heat and air -. '




element to the delicious smells that are part of the
stadium expenence.
Don't interfere: Turning food too oflen dung grilling
forces moisture out of it. Instead. let food brown before
turning it to develop a flavorful crust, the signature of '
great gnlling. When it's time to flip, use tongs or a :A
spatula in place of forks that pierce food and release

Sike 'em Out: Marinate our meat before grilling to .
fight sudden flare-ups and apply sauces, such as lKC
Masterpiece Barbecue Sauce, to meats once they have
cooked a while on the grill rather than before you start.
You'll still taste the delicious flavor without risking a
burst of flames
True fans can take baseball tailgating to the next level
by creating a game-day menu featuring recipes that
tocorporate the flavors and ingredients of your team's
hometown. For more grilling tips and recipes, visit

Preserve Your




Valuable




I o'c uments


Proper copying and

storage of important

-"" financial and.


Personal documents

is not just smart -

it's essential.


FAMILY FEATURES
op-secret, classified, highly sensitive, available only on a need-to-know basis. These descriptors conjure
up images of-CIA spy flicks and prime-time police dramas, but everyone has their own "classified" file -
or should.
We all have vital documents that should be treated with the utmost care and concern. Marriage licenses, birth
certificates, wills, deeds, mortgage papers, insurance information, stock and bond certificates these are just a
few of the essential papers most Americanis have on hand, but probably aren't caring for or storing properly. i
According to the document service experts at The UPS Store*, there's no time like the present to update, copy
and store your personal documents. In fact, The UPS Store franchisee Donna Evans recommends that people
make copying important documents a yearly ritual. "Tax time is the perfect time to inventory and copy neces-
sary papers," she says. "We encourage customers to bring in important documents along with their tax returns.
It just takes a few minutes and a few cents to duplicate each document."
The UPS Store offers this handy top-ten list of quick and easy tips for preserving valuable documents. i
1. Keep copies of documents in tro separate "safe" places (eig., siei-deposil bos.bome ireproot'safe or ile
cabinet, at the office or.with an accountant). Make sure to store records in a stable environment away from
sunlight, bright lights and water pipes. : t.
2. Store the following documents in a safe-deposit box: copies of wills, deeds, titles, licenses, mortgages, stock
and bond certificates, employment contracts, prenuptial agreements, adoption papers and naturalization
papers. (Remember that only certified copies of vital records can be used to establish identity. Any other
copies can only.prove that the document once existed.)
3. For records kept at home, use a fireproof safe or file cabinet to store titles tocars, boats or other vehicles,
insurance policies, bank statements, W-2 forms, extra copies of wills, income statements, employment:
benefits and passports.
4. Save all records of home improvements. This may help resolve disputes with insurance agents in the event
of a disaster.
5. Hang on to tax returns (including W-2s) forever, particularly if you own a small business. The IRS has three
years from an annual return's due date to audit for that year. But if the IRS suspects fraud, there is no limit
to how far back it can search for evidence.
6. Review monthly checking account statements. Once each deposit is confirmed, shred the corresponding
deposit slip.
7. Hang on to receipts and credit card statements for any appliance under warranty.
8. Be sure to inventory and video all expensive household items. Store the video in a fireproof safe or safe-
deposit box.
9. Don't forget items that have 'sentimental value. Budget time to copy or scan one-of-a-kind.items like cards,
letters and photographs.
10. And, most importantly, draw up a list that details the location of every important'record. This list should
include the contact information of individuals family members may need to reach.regarding specific finan-
cial affairs (e.g., accountant, stockbroker, lawyer, financial advisor, insurance agent and bank officer). Keep
one copy in a safe-deposit box; give one to an attorney and another to a relative or close friend.



Preparing for

',. a Digital Disaster
Don't forget computer files and documents wlien 'it comes to updating and safely storing
your most important personal documents In today's digital era, many Americans keep at least
a portion of their financial records in computer software programs not to mention years'
.,. :worth of digital photos that may have never even been printed. Do take time periodically
to burn CDs with your digital photos, financial files and any other important documents
that aren't stored elsewhere in printouts: Then, don't forget to put the CDs with your other
importantat documents in a safe, easily accessible place. You may also want to program your
.>' computer to run regular backups to an external drive,.in case of power outages, program
errors, viruses or other mishaps that could erase or damage important files.

I Preparing for
" '' "" 2:- "' "' " t -" "


a Natural Disaster
While keeping your vital documents organized and stored properly is a must for anyone;
for those who live in'areas that are more likely to be struck by hurricanes, tornados, wildfires,
earthquakes or floods, it's critical.
A recent survey commissioned by The UPS Store found that 58 percent of those surveyed
said that natural disasters have made them more aware of the need to have important docu-
ments in order and safely stored. Yet only 21 percent of respondents'have started preparing
for a natural disaster. Of those who have started preparations, just over half indicated that
they have taken'steps to copy important documents.
There are a number of resources available to help people decide which documents are the
Z -- "most critical to have available in case of a disaster. The Red Cross provides a list of important
family documents at www.redcross.org, while the Federal Emergency Management Agency
developed an Emergency Financial First Aid Kit, designed to help people organize their
personal information, available at www.ready.gov/america/getakit/checklist.html.
