By STEVEN RICHMOND srichmond@lakecityreporter.com Local officials unveiled Fire Station #51 Thursday, one of three new stations part of a roughly $3.3 mil lion expansion to Columbia County Fire Rescues resources as they prepare for more stringent insur ance requirements. After 30 years, the Insurance Services Office (ISO), which sets safety ratings many insurance companies use to evaluate a given areas risk factors, changed how counties and cities would be graded on fire safety in 2014. Columbia County public safety staff had to make extensive changes to their fire protection services in order to meet minimum ISO standards and raised local property owners annual non ad valorem fire assessments in order to fund the changes. Using the new revenue from the higher assess ments, the county con structed three new fire stations ($180,000 each), bought three new Pierce Kenworth fire trucks ($350,000 each) as well as $678,000 worth of other new equipment, and hired 21 new firefighters and one fire inspector ($1,080,000 in salaries, including ben efits). The fire stations, which Boozer said will be fully operational by next week, are located on Lake Jefferey Road, County Road 18 and Cooper Terrace, and Mershon Road just north of Falling Creek. The buildings them selves consist of 2,400 square-foot metal buildings used for housing trucks as well as two bedroom, two bath mobile homes for onduty firefighters. The biggest benefit were going to realize is that we can get more fire JASON MATTHEW WALKER /Lake City Reporter First responders in training The door from a junked Oldsmobile pops up as Columbia County firefighter Kayla Losco, 25, works on it with a spreader during training at the Columbia Auto Salvage yard on Thursday.

Do you hope to get him or her away from the Playstation and participat ing in more outdoor activi ties? As childhood obesity rates climb in Columbia County, the University of Florida joins its efforts with the UF-IFAS Columbia County Extension Office to provide education to parents on healthy lifestyle changes for their young children. The Healthy Kids Program is designed to help children between the ages of 3 and 7 years improve their diet and increase physical activity. The no-cost program helps families work togeth er to learn how to man age real-life problems and make gradual changes to their habits. As we have more peo ple in the work force and more single-family house holds, we are really look ing at convenience foods, said Katherine Allen, UFIFAS Columbia County Extension Office interim director. They tend to be high in calories and low in nutrients. The problem is were filling our kids up, but we arent giving them the building blocks they need to grow.

Dispatcher Steve Moseley of First Coast Express in Jacksonville, normally hears from driver Tim Rutledge every morn-ing, but he didn’t hear from Rutledge until about 2 p.m. Monday. It turns out the 53-year-old Orlando man had crawled under the truck to fix his brakes and became pinned under an axle during a winter storm. Moseley stayed on the phone and reassured Rutledge while waiting for employees of the Pilot Travel Center in Whiteland to find him amid a sea of other trucks parked at the truck stop about 15 miles south of Indianapolis. Finally, Moseley heard people over the phone call-ing out for Rutledge. Moseley calls the rescue a miracle.Police shoot, wound suicidal man TAMPA — Tampa police are investigating after an officer reportedly shot and wounded a potentially sui-cidal man. Police say the family of 37-year-old Jason Turk called 911 early Friday morning, saying they were worried he was unstable and might kill himself. When officers arrived, they reported finding Turk sitting in a car in the drive-way. Police say Turk dis-played a gun, prompting at least one officer to shoot. Turk was taken to a nearby hospital. His condi-tion wasn’t immediately known. No officers were injured. 15-mo. sentence for fisherman PANAMA CITY — A Florida fisherman has been sentenced to 15 months in federal prison after operating his vessel in a closed part of the Gulf of Mexico. Prosecutors said Wednesday that 29-year-old Thomas Zachary Breeding of Panama City pleaded guilty earlier to charges of obstruction of justice and making false statements to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Breeding was accused of illegally fishing in an area known as The Edges that is closed to commercial fishing from Jan. 1 to April 30 each year to protect spawning gag grouper. Authorities say Breeding falsely claimed he was fishing the closed area because his GPS device was inaccurate. Breeding later admitted in court that he altered the GPS so he could claim he strayed into the prohibited area by accident.Man accused in football fatality JACKSONVILLE — A Jacksonville man is accused of beating another man to death with a base-ball bat during an argu-ment over how barbeque was being sliced at a party. Police arrested 35-yearold Alvin Kenneth “Chico” Welch Jr. on Wednesday. They say he fatally beat 31-year-old Joshua Andrew Heinz when the argument broke out Saturday night after a night of watching football games. Area newspapers report Welch was getting a take-home plate when he and Heinz had words over how the meat was being sliced. Assistant Chief Chris Butler says the argument escalated and Heinz was hit with the bat. He later died from his injuries. Butler says the two men were acquaintances. The party was at Heinz’s house. Welch is being held without bail at the Jacksonville jail.State’s underwater properties near top ORLANDO — A new report by research firm RealtyTrac says Florida has the nation’s second-highest rates of residential properties that were deep-ly underwater last month.Bullock sweeps People’s Choice AwardsLOS ANGELES S andra Bullock reigned supreme at the 40th annual People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night, taking home four trophies as the evening’s top winner. The actress was named favorite movie actress, comedic actress, dra-matic actress and shared the favor-ite movie duo award with “Gravity” co-star George Clooney. Bullock’s buddy comedy, “The Heat,” co-star-ring Melissa McCarthy, was award-ed favorite comedic movie. Fans deemed Ellen DeGeneres their favorite daytime TV host, mak-ing her the woman who has gained the most People’s Choice Awards with a total of 14 trophies. “As a young girl growing up in New Orleans, if anyone would have told me I was going to win 14 People’s Choice Awards I...I mean 12, yes. 13, maybe. But 14?” joked DeGeneres, host of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” who said that she wanted to make the show for everyone from old, young, black, white, guy and straight.Movies, music “Iron Man 3” scored three awards including favorite movie, action movie and the film’s star, Robert Downey Jr., channeling Iron Man in his acceptance speech, received the favorite action movie star honor. Justin Timberlake also nabbed three awards. Among them was the favorite album accolade for “The 20/20 Experience.” In a sweet moment, he thanked his “beautiful wife,” Jessica Biel, “for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dishwasher. It goes a long way. Fellas, you’re welcome.” Katy Perry, who was not at the show, scored the win for favorite video for the third year in a row, fol-lowing up last year’s award for “Part of Me” and 2012’s honor for “Last Friday Night” with her hit “Roar” this year. A pregnant Drew Barrymore, who joked that DeGeneres had called her fat backstage, presented her “Blended” co-star Adam Sandler with the comedic movie actor award.Talk shows After debuting her talk show “The Queen Latifah Show” in 2013, fans crowned Queen Latifah their favorite new talk show host. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, the stars of “The Vampire Diaries,” earned the award for best on-screen chemistry at the People’s Choice Awards. The duo, who had their round of breakups and makeups on-screen and off, joked about their coupledom. “The good thing is chemistry,” said Dobrev, with her arm around Somerhalder, who she is no long romantically attached to. They man-aged to make a would-be awkward moment entertaining by addressing their buzz-worthy pairing head-on. Shemar Moore heavily hit on fellow presenter Malin Akerman, crack-ing jokes about ebony and ivory and saying he didn’t see a ring on her fin-ger. She played right along, leaning in as the crowd cheered them on. Stephen Colbert won the favorite late night talk show host award, Britney Spears picked up the favor-ite pop artist honor, and Kaley Cuoco received the favorite come-dic TV actress prize as well as the favorite TV comedy award, along with the rest of the cast of “The Big Bang Theory.” Thursday: Afternoon: 7-3-7 Thursday: Afternoon: 1-7-2-8 Wednesday: 5-8-10-19-34 2A LAKE CITY REPORTER DAILY BRIEFING FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 10 & 11, 2014 Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 The Lake City Reporter corrects errors of fact in news items.

The new strategically-placed fire stations and person nel allow fire rescue to expand its coverage area to include 2,800 more homes in rural areas of the county, according to Safety Manager David Kraus. CCFR is also standard izing its fire trucks to include the same equip ment on each engine, including hoses of varying sizes and drafting equip ment to pump water from nearby rivers, lakes and ponds. The revenue will also cover the hire and train ing of 21 new firefight ersincluding Columbia Countys first two female firefighters. We were able to build a drafting pit that helps the new recruits learn pump operations and how to use the truck, Boozer said. Weve had some challenges with that in the past, finding a controlled environment to do that. He also hinted that peo ple might see more fire trucks driving through neighborhoods in the near future. Many of the new firefighters are also new to the area, Boozer said, and need to famil iarize themselves with county roadways, homes and buildings. How you put out a fire at a 3,000 square-foot home will be different from how you put out a fire at a 1,600 square-foot home, Boozer said. These guys spend a lot of time looking at houses, thinking about how to approach different situations. They plan to hire a new fire inspector, as well, who will serve in multiple capacities as a public information offi cer, building inspector and fire code specialist. Were also paying for a portion of the communica tion cost and 911 center we had not been paying for in the past, Kraus said. Were now paying 100 percent of our cost of doing business, I guess you would say. Ultimately, Kraus said the upgrades were more about getting what you need and making it better for the citizens. Brian Ward, Barbers 30year-old son who also lives at the address, picked up the rifle to move it and dropped it. The rifle had the safety off and discharged, striking Ward in the right chest area with the bullet exiting his right shoulder, authorities said. The University of Florida tack les the concern by combining a team of physicians, nurses, nutri tionist, an exercise physiologist and behavioral health psycholo gist all led by David Janicke, Ph.D. The study is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Working toward a goal of reducing childhood obesity, Allen hopes the program encourages healthy eating, reduces screen time and promotes healthy activi ties in young children. The idea is that the habits you form early in life are the ones that tend to stick, IFAS exten sion agent Cathy Rogers said. Hopefully, if you can just get kids eating healthy earlier, they will be healthy for the rest of their life. The study teaches parents about nutrients and vitamins vital to childrens growth, warning par ents that special foods namely junk snacks need to remain for special occasions. Vegetables and fruits should become a priority in a childs diet, Allen said. But parents may wonder how to accomplish this seemingly daunt ing task: Make gradual changes, instead of trying to force several changes at once; Encourage children to try foods that they havent liked in the past; Prepare the foods in different ways to change the flavor of the food; Try a new fruit or vegetable at least once a week; Allow children to pick their own fruits and vegetables, empowering them to make their own choices. Childrens tastebuds change and mature over time, Rogers said. So its important to have a child try a food several times, even if they havent liked it in the past. When children select their own food, it makes them more likely to try and, even like, the item they have selected. The program lasts for four months, with group meetings once per week for the first two months. For the last two months, the groups will meet biweekly. Families will also be followed for six months after the group meet ings end in order to assess the long-term impact of the program. Each session will include a group discussion and lesson for the parents, while their children enjoy fun activities that promote healthy learning. A new snack is provided weekly to expand the participants knowledge of vari ous foods. Some of the program is just helping parents understand they have control, Rogers said. Kids dont always make the best deci sions, so parents can be good par ents even when they say no. While the programs focus is not really losing weight, parents and children tend to drop pounds as they progress through the Healthy Kids program. The pro gram instead focuses on being healthy, Rogers said. For more about the program, contact Carolyn Jaeger at the Columbia County IFAS Extension Office at (386)-752-5384 or the toll free number for the Gainesville office at 1-866-673-9623. All vis its will be held at the Columbia County Extension Office, located at 971 W. Duval St. suite 170. Families will be given $10 per group meeting for travel costs. Screenings for the study are currently underway with the first session starting in February. HEALTHY Continued From 1A education outreach programs on the Tuesday they perform in Lake City at Richardson Middle School, Lake City Middle School and Columbia High School. The idea is that they might be able to mutually agree on some students to come with them to the evening perfor mance at the Florida Gateway College Levy Performing Arts Center. If it works out well, well all have some fun watch ing and listening to that. ... They do so well at relating to the younger crowd and have a passion for getting them on board. The Tuesday performance follows another brass band at the Live! at Dowling Park Artist Series at the Advent Christian Village Church. The Kings Brass will perform Friday at 7 p.m. in Dowling Park, presenting a concert of hymn classics with contempo rary flair. Both of these brass groups include percussion, as well as brass, Murdock said. This year a new flex ticket system is being offered, where each ticket can be used at any Lake City Community Concert.

F atal traffic accidents are down across America even while vehicles are using fuel more efficient-ly than ever. Both are encouraging trends that deserve to continue. Mind you, some people thought this couldn’t happen. They warned in the 1990s and in the early 2000s that if better gas mileage was a goal, cars would become lighter and thus increase the risk of fatal crashes with heavier vehicles. Yet look at recent trends.•U.S. traffic fatalities have fallen fairly steadily in the prior decade, from about 43,000 in 2002 to just over 33,500 in 2012. Preliminary numbers indicate fatalities dropped again in 2013. •The average weight of passenger vehicles in the United States actually has been rather static in the last decade, even as highway fatality rates have fallen. •The average weight was 3,934 pounds in 2002 and 3,920 pounds in 2012, according to an American Chemical Council report from last July. That latter figure was the lightest since 1999, the council reported. •The average fuel efficiency of new passenger vehicles and light trucks has risen remarkably in the last decade. Much of the credit goes to new federal regulations, supported by the Obama administration and final-ly endorsed by major automakers, that require better fuel economy. That helps reduce the cost to drive a vehicle while also cutting harmful pollution. New passenger cars achieved only 29 miles a gallon in 2002, but that figure had jumped to 35.6 miles a gallon by 2012, according to a recent report by the United States Department of Transportation. Average mileage for light trucks had increased from 21.4 to 25, another significant gain. Those figures will go even higher as stricter rules take effect over the next decade. Plenty of factors have worked to reduce fatalities. Fewer accidents have involved drunk drivers. The total number of people killed in U.S. alcohol-impaired crashes was 13,290 in 2002, but that was down to 10,322 in 2012, according to a report last month by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The reported rate of seat belt use has trended up, moving from 82 percent in 2005 to 86 percent in 2012, according to the NHTSA. Experts also point out that many design changes have made vehicles safer. Examples include stronger roofs plus crumple zones that absorb energy in crashes. Different materials are used to make vehi-cles. The weight of regular steel and iron castings has fallen in the last decade, while more pounds of mediumand high-strength steel, plastics and rubber are used. In some states ... transportation departments have installed cables in medians to prevent cross-over crashes. States need to add more cable where it can protect the most drivers. Rumble strips also have become more common to help alert drivers who might be veering off a road, either while falling asleep or using electronic devices. More should be done to trim the number of fatalities. Distracted driving – often texting on phones – can be deadly. More people need to use seat belts, and more motor-ists must avoid drinking and then driving. Engineers must continue working on vehicle safety innova-tions. The long-term reduction in traffic fatalities is an encouraging accom-plishment, made even better by the successful efforts to produce mil-lions of vehicles that are more fuel efficient and more environmentally friendly.

A s a curious little child, I watched a busy ant colony in my back yard. I saw every ant work hard, digging a grain of sand at a time, and piling it neatly around the entrance. Ants died and fell off the edge of the pile, having worked themselves to death! The ants all seemed to know what to do. They gave the project everything they had. They were what psy-chologists call “motivated” – totally dedicated to complete their goal: the perfect ant hole. We people also have motivation. But we’re different from the ants. We think about what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it. We ques-tion whether it’s the right thing to do, what’s best for us, what the results will be, what others want from us, and how we’ll feel about the results. We can recognize obstacles in the way, and are often discouraged by the conflicts or challenges. Unlike the single-mind-ed ants, our thoughts and feelings can get in the way of what we want to get done. What is motivation? Carole Wade and Carol Tavris, in their textbook Psychology (10th edition, 2011, Prentice Hall) that I use in my psy-chology classes at Florida Gateway College, define motivation as “…a process within a person or animal that causes that organism to move toward a goal—to satisfy a biologi-cal need or achieve an ambition—or away from an unpleasant situation.” They suggest that it’s good to have enthusiasm and inspiration, and that it’s helpful to use critical think-ing when deciding what you do, and to make choices that will lead you toward goals you have chosen for yourself. But how can we use the psychology of motivation to build a better, happier, more fulfilled life? Here are some ideas: You might not think about it, but our health and fitness is closely tied to our feelings and our power to feel motivated. Eat foods you know are healthy, and get enough physical activity to maintain fit-ness. What do you really enjoy doing? I’ve heard, “Do what you love doing, and you’ll never work a day of your life.” Don’t settle for a mediocre job, except temporarily. Find what you love doing, plunge into it, and the rewards will fol-low. Wherever you are in your life, whatever your limits or capabilities, choose things you enjoy rather than things you’d rather not have in your life. Feel the joy and fulfillment you can get just from the doing -from learning and developing your skills, talents, and knowledge. The rewards you can get from learning and growing can give you power. Build social support, and a “work space.” Connect with family and friends who are supportive. Find a comfortable, pleasant work space. Unlike the ants, we often have multiple goals, and our goals are often in conflict. What is really most important in your life? Choose goals that are most important, and schedule time for them. Find a “reason to get up in the morning.” It may be to take care of your kids, knit lap blankets for the nursing home, participate in a char-ity marathon or walk, participate in sports, or whatever. Ask yourself, “What can I do to make the world a little better?” What is your most exciting goal? Write me at Bob.Denny8@gmail.com. Q Kansas City Star TODAY IN HISTORY On this date:In 1776, Thomas Paine anonymously published his influential pamphlet, “Common Sense,” which argued for American independence from British rule. In 1861, Florida became the third state to secede from the Union. In 1901, the Spindletop oil field in Beaumont, Texas, produced the Lucas Gusher, heralding the start of the Texas oil boom. In 1964, Vee-Jay Records released “Introducing... The Beatles,” an album which ran into immediate legal opposition from Capitol Records, which was about to come out with its own album, “Meet the Beatles!” (After a court battle, the two companies reached a settlement.)

Address your comments to Bob.Denny8@gmail.com or 386-454-4950.S ince 1999, more than 200 law enforcement officers across the nation have been killed and thou-sands more injured by oncoming traffic while issuing tickets or investigating a crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. In an effort to reduce the carnage, Florida lawmakers in 2002 enacted the Move Over law, which requires motorists who come upon a cruiser, ambulance or tow truck parked on the roadside, with lights flashing, to move one lane over. If motorists cannot safely move over, they must slow to 20 mph below the posted speed limit. While the law has been on the books for more than a decade, drivers don’t always do as they ought. That’s why FHP has launched a campaign this month to alert everyone to the dan-gers of not showing a little courtesy – and common sense – when approaching first responders. It’s not asking much. Officers and emergency workers have tough enough jobs without somebody whiz-zing by within a few feet of them at 70 mph. If common human decency isn’t enough, you might want to give yourself a break as well. Failure to comply is a moving violation and can result in a fine as well as points on your license. So please, show a little sense on the highway when you see flashing lights up ahead and off to the right. 4AOPINION

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, January 10 & 11, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com 5A 5AF&V H ebrews 9:27 says, “And it is appoint-ed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” Lately several people have asked ques-tions about the coming judgments. I realize today that there are many dif-ferences of opinion on the subject, but the Bible is clear on its teachings. Some believe that at some point in time all will be resurrected and the lost, called “goats,” will be sent to hell; and the saved, called “sheep,” will go to heaven. This is confused with the judgment of the nations that will take place at the Second Coming of Jesus. The two great judg-ments that are still in the future are The Judgment Seat of Christ and The Great White Throne Judgment. Second Corinthians 5:10 states, “For we must all appear before the judg-ment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” This judgment is for the saved only. Many today that profess to be Christian do not take this judgment seriously. It’s not preached or taught enough in many of our churches today. First Corinthians 3:11-15 says, “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.” The last judgment is known as The Great White Throne Judgment. This judgment is for only those who reject the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary. It is the last event on God’s calendar before eternity begins. This will be the most horrible event ever to take place. All those who stand before this judgment will be lost forever in a hell that was prepared for the devil and his angels. Revelation 20:11-15 records this as follows: “Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged accord-ing to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” The Judgment Seat of Christ will be a blessed time for all those who serve God and use their talents to His glory. On the other hand, it will be a sad time for those who do not. But even they will saved from a Devil’s Hell. I pray that none who read this will reject God’s simple plan of salvation. If you do, hell awaits you. Trust Him today!Two great judgments to come Hugh Sherrillems-hugh43@comcast.net Q Hugh Sherrill is an ordained minister presently serving at Philippi Baptist Church. BIBLE STUDIES God loves a rebellious nationS everal years after being in exile, Ezekiel is approached by God to go to the house of Israel, also in exile, and speak to them. God tells Ezekiel that the house of Israel will not listen, but He wants Ezekiel to speak to them anyway. God tells Ezekiel that they are “a rebellious people who have rebelled against Me” (Ezekiel 2:3). When Ezekiel spoke to this rebellious nation, he was to tell them “Thus says the Lord God” (2:4). It did not matter whether or not they listened, after Ezekiel got through speaking to them “they will know that a prophet has been among them” (2:5). Ezekiel was to endure whatever persecu-tion they would impose upon him, but he was to “speak [God’s] word to them whether they listen or not, for they are rebel-lious” (2:6, 7). Upon reading the rest of the book of Ezekiel, we find that Ezekiel did speak to the people. This Old Testament book is a great testimony to the love God had for this rebellious nation. Even though He had sent them into Babylonian captivity, God was still trying to persuade them to return to Him. God was making a diligent attempt to give His “stubborn and obsti-nate children” information they needed to change their ways and quit rebel-ling against Him. This is a great manifestation of the love God has for people. The record shows with abundant examples that Israel was very rebel-lious, but God still loved them. They refused to obey His laws, but He kept sending prophet after prophet to tell them about God’s displeasure with their actions. All of these prophets, including Ezekiel, were conveying to the people God’s pro-posed actions if they did not repent and come back to Him. Most of these prophets had to endure some type of persecution because they told the peo-ple “Thus says the Lord.” It is heard quite often that the Old Testament is full of examples where God shows His wrath and anger by punishing people. This statement about God is true, but it does not reflect every aspect of God. What is remarkable about God is that He still loved Israel even though they were rebellious towards Him. If God were like most of us, then once He sent them into exile He would be done with them. We would say that His patience ran out the day that He sent them into exile with the help of foreign kings, in Ezekiel’s case, Nebuchadnezzar. However, we still see God trying to influence Israel to make changes in their lives. The love that God has for all mankind is the action of doing what is best for people, regard-less of how He has been treated. There is a great lesson for us to learn by looking at how God dealt with this rebellious nation. The love God has means that He never gives up on His people. He is always trying to get them to do what is righteous. As recipients of this love of God, we need to appreci-ate Him all the more. One of the best ways that we can show our appreciation is for us to imitate this love in our dealings with other people. We need to tell them, “Thus says the Lord.” We need to be the Ezekiel of our generation. We need to tell people about God’s love. BIBLICAL MEDITATION Carlton McPeakcarlton_mc@msn.com Q Carlton G.

6AReligion 6A LAKE CITY REPORTER RELIGION FRIDAY & SATURDAY, JANUARY 10 & 11, 2014 Overcoming bad days with wisdomD oesn’t take much for us to have a bad day does it? Flat tire? Slow waitress? Get cut off in traffic? Any one of these can make for a bad day, but combine several and look out! The fact is, at times daily life can be pretty frustrating and downright inconve-nient! However, the way we choose to handle these situations may tell us more about our own character than we want to know! In the book of Proverbs 24:10, the Bible suggests that: “If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!” Times of trouble can be useful to show us what kind of moral fiber we are made of, and if we are will-ing, they can strengthen those fibers considerably. Often we fail to take advantage of this benefit because we misunderstand what a trial really is. Trouble actually means adversity or affliction; real trouble, not simply a minor incon-venience or a nuisance. It seems that we make it our goal to avoid any kind of real trouble and seek to detach from anything that might cause us discomfort. We grow comfortable in our luxury (compared to the rest of the world), and become more and more self-absorbed. Our prob-lem then becomes mistak-ing simple annoyances for real suffering. For example, we grumble about standing in line too long at the grocery store, when many in the world won’t have enough to eat today. We stay busy running our errands and keeping the laundry done and ignore the struggles that our teenagers are fac-ing daily. Irritated by the mistake of another driver, we assume that we are the only one on the road with an important place to be. Are we really living our lives so detached and self-absorbed? The trials that develop strength are ones that test your faith. Troubles that can only be overcome or even accepted by the understanding that we are not in control, nor does this world revolve around us. According to James 1:2-3, trials develop perseverance, which pro-duces maturity. Webster’s defines maturity as being fully developed. In context, we are mature not because of our physical size or the number of our years, but by how clearly we can differentiate between an inconvenience and an authentic trial. We are wise to learn to tell the difference, because our hearts matter! HEART MATTERS Angie Landangieland3@windstream.net Q Heart Matters is a weekly column written by Angie Land, director of the Family Life Ministries of the Lafayette Baptist Association, where she teaches bible studies, leads marriage and family conferences, and offers bibli cal counseling to individuals, couples and families. Dad wrote down six things on a piece of paper which he gave to me so many years ago. Dad was always a source of wisdom for me as he was for so many other young preachers. It seemed that the congregation where I was preaching had some problems. That shouldn’t surprise you, and I’m sure it doesn’t. Too many times, churches are the result of this very thing… they just could not get along with other Christians and decided to leave and start another one. Sometimes, this is truly necessary, while other times, it is just wrong. Anyway, I sat with dad, and was asking his advise about how to deal with some church difficulties, and he gave me this piece of paper. I carry it in my Bible now, as a reminder, and I just wanted to pass these on to you because they are important and might be of some help. 1.) “Trust in God.” When all else fails, when others break their prom-ises, and disappoint you… God will never fail to keep His promises. “No tempta-tion has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). When things get tough, hold onto this, and look for the “way out,” just be sure it is the right way, because God does not lead people to do wrong. 2.) “Do not follow (Deify) man.” People tend to put people on pedestals. Whether it be TV evange-lists or local ministers… One thing is clear, as Paul addresses the Christians at Rome, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). As surely as you put someone on a pedestal, you will eventually be disappointed in them. Paul also said, “… and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:24). Everyone needs Jesus and salvation from sin. It’s OK to admire, or for someone to be an example for you… but even Paul said, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). He knew he wasn’t perfect… he was just trying as hard as he could to “run the race” and FINISH the journey and go home to Jesus. 3.) “Allow humans to be human.” We get frus-trated, loose our tempers, say things we don’t mean. We want others to give us ‘elbow room’ right? We want others to over look our ‘bloopers’ right? We want others to be patient with us while we learn and grow, right? We want oth-ers to forgive and encour-age us, right? But often, we don’t allow the same for others. We just are not perfect, and the sooner we accept this, the better. This will help families and churches as well! Jesus said, “Do to others as you would have them do to you” (Luke 6:31). 6 things to remember Jack Exum Jr. jackexumjr@yahoo.com Q Jack Exum Jr. is a freelance writer who lives in Lake City.

Priest beaten to death with stake GRANTS PASS, Ore. — An autopsy shows a priest who was killed on New Year’s Day in the Northern California city of Eureka was beaten to death with a wooden stake and a metal gutter pipe. A coroner declined to release further details about the beating death of Rev. Eric Freed because the investigation has not concluded. But at his arraignment, Gary Lee Bullock, was charged with murder with a special allegation of torture. He is also charged with burglary, arson and auto theft. Bullock pleaded not guilty and bail was set at $1.2 million.Pope strikes ‘monsignor’ title for most priests in keeping with humble aims VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis has done away with the honorific title “monsignor” for all but a few priests, further evidence of his desire for priests to be simple, humble ser-vants. The Vatican’s Secretary of State sent a letter to its embassies asking them to inform bishops’ conferences of the change. From now on, the Vatican says only diocesan priests who are “chaplains of the Holy Father,” can use the honorific, and then only after they turn 65. Bishops, vicars and archbishops still get to be called “monsignor” and Holy See officials will have the title if their office warrants it.Former NBA star lashes out about missionary held by North Korea WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is denouncing an angry outburst by former NBA star Dennis Rodman in North Korea. Rodman is in North Korea for a basketball exhibition honoring the regime’s leader, Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon). The former Chicago Bull didn’t like being asked during a CNN satellite interview if he would bring up the detention of American Kenneth Bae (bay). The missionary, who is in poor health, is being held on charges of “anti-state” crimes. Bae has been held for more than a year. White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters he wouldn’t dignify Rodman’s outburst. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki (SAH’-kee) says the U.S. remains very committed to securing Bae’s release and is gravely concerned about his health. She said those listening to Rodman’s comments should remember that he’s not representing the U.S.Freed monsignor told to report weekly PHILADELPHIA — A judge in Philadelphia has told a Roman Catholic church official convicted in a sex-abuse scandal that she already has signed an arrest warrant that she would issue if he violates the term of his release. Monsignor William Lynn’s conviction was overturned last week and he was released from prison on Friday after serv-ing 18 months of a threeto six-year prison term for felony child endangerment. Lynn was the first U.S. church official ever convicted in the handling of abuse complaints. But a state appeals court ruled Dec. 26 that the state’s child-endangerment law in the late 1990s did not apply to supervisors like Lynn. Lynn attorney Thomas Bergstrom says Lynn is restricted to the two floors of a rectory at St. William Parish in north-east Philadelphia. Lynn has to get permission to leave for appointments with his doctor, lawyer or to attend to anything else. There is no school at the parish. His diocese put up bail money for Lynn, which has drawn criticism.RELIGION NEWS IN BRIEF Q Associated PressService, unity and jealousy — a model churchFrom staff reportsIf you were to pick one of the New Testament churches as the model church, the church of Corinth would probably be last on the list. This church (remarkably still called saints in 1 Cor. 1:2 — a true sign of God’s gracious nature) was filled with virtually every vice and was divided on essentially every issue of the faith. Throughout 1 Corinthians, Paul attempts to unify the body on different issues, and his plea for unity culmi-nates in this chapter through an illustration that is easy for all of us to relate to. Just as the body is unable to go anywhere if its right and left legs don’t work together, so also the body of Christ is not much good without being unified in the person of Christ. Oftentimes in the church, jealousy runs rampant–people want to serve in one capacity, but they are ill-suited for that ministry and would be better used in a different area. Paul’s call here is clear–don’t wish that you were someone else! Use the gifts that God has given you, and why? Paul gives us the answer in a similar passage in Ephesians 4:12-16: to build up the body of Christ. How are you using your gifts to build up the body of Christ? In what way are you bringing about unity in the church? Christianity + science: A centrifugal churchBy PASTOR JORDAN GOWINGCourtesyBack in high school, I loved physics, and thought that I would eventually end up in a science-related career. (Looking back and seeing what some of my engineer friends had to endure through col-lege makes me forever grateful that God has called me elsewhere). And while I am now on a very dif-ferent career path, discussions of a scientific nature still excite me and peak my interest. So imagine something that ties laws of physics with the church — you can’t beat it, right? The church I currently attend has spent the past few weeks dis-cussing the nature of the church — is it evangelism-focused or is it edification-focused? (To which I would answer, ‘yes.’) Yet this dis-cussion on the church reminded me of an excerpt from Christianity Rediscovered by Vincent Donovan that I read a number of years ago concerning different church mod-els. The church of God is meant to be a centrifugal force. In the Old Testament, God placed Israel at the crossroads of several international highways (the land of Canaan forms a land-bridge between the powerful empires of Egypt, Rome/Greece, and Babylon/Persia/Assyria/etc.). God led his people to the Promised Land, where they were to reflect his glory to the nations. These nations were to be called to Israel, where they would join the people of God in worship on Zion (the entire book of Isaiah, especially ch. 1-2 emphasize this): this is a centripetal model of minis-try. A centripetal force is a force that draws objects towards the center of a circle, for example, the moon around the earth or the earth around the sun (don’t worry, the moon isn’t going to come crash-ing into us anytime soon). Israel, at the center of the ancient world, was positioned in a place that would draw all people to them; in this way, God was going to reach the world. Yet that was never God’s ultimate goal — after the Resurrection, we see Jesus command his disciples to go make disciples. After the cross event, God sends us out into the world — whether across the street or across the globe. The model of ministry has changed–now the people of God are a sending agent, a centrifugal force. Much like a roller coaster that goes through a loop, so we also are being forced out of our church buildings by the Spirit of God to reach the lost. Look at your church. Too often our churches seem to follow the Old Testament model of the people of God: we set up shop on a corner, make sure that our programs are relevant, our music is hip, and our preaching is contextualized (all of which are good things); then we wait for people to come. How often do we build relationships with the lost, bringing them into our lives and into our churches? Is your church a centrifugal church or a centripetal one? Are you following the model of the New Testament? Are you going? Instead of thinking of new programs and putting flyers up, hop-ing that people will come into your church, how about trying to build a relationship with someone and invite them? That’s how God’s church will grow most effectively: through centrifugal ministry. Now, go be a roller coaster.PART ONE

Jernigan Jr. will forgo his s enior year for Florida State University.Lake City product enters draftBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comAfter dominating opponents for four years at Columbia High, Lake City product Timmy Jernigan Jr. made his commitment to play for Florida State University. After three years and a national championship on Monday with the Florida State Seminoles, Jernigan Jr. made it official that he would declare for the NFL Draft. Scouts Inc had Jernigan rated as the No. 7 over-all prospect entering the draft and he is the top rated defensive tackle. He was described as both “disrup-tive,” “violent,” and “relent-less.” Jernigan is a rare mix of size and speed at the defensive tackle position. He comes in at 6-foot-2, with 292-pounds backing him up. Jernigan had a solid junior year for the Seminoles while only playing a half in most of the games due to Florida State resting its starters in blowout perfor-mances. In all, Jernigan had 11 tackles for loss, which led the Seminoles, and regis-tered 4.5 sacks in his junior year. It was Jernigan’s first year as a full-time starter for Florida State after starting two games in his freshman and sophomore seasons. Jernigan had 30 tackles and six for loss in his fresh-man campaign before add-ing 46 tackles and eight for loss as a sophomore. He added 63 tackles this sea-son to earn first-team All Atlantic Coast honors along with being named a sec-ond-team Associated Press All-American. In all, Jernigan had 138 tackles, 25 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks during his three years with the Seminoles. When it came time to declare for the NFL Draft, the decision for Jernigan to turn professional was an easy one for the Seminoles, although they would have certainly welcomed back the defensive tackle. “Timmy Jernigan was basically the one player on roster I had been told FSU’s coaches weren’t really going to encourage to stay. He’s ready,” Ira Schoffel of the Tallahassee Democrat reported on Thursday. Jernigan is a big believer in his own talents and feels that he is ready for the NFL. “I feel I am the most versatile defensive line-man in the draft,” Jernigan told ESPN ’s Joe Schad on Thursday. “Some team will get an athletic, hard-work-ing lineman who attacks, plays smart and doesn’t come off the field.” Some critics attacked Jernigan after the cham-pionship game against Auburn when he appeared tired in the fourth quarter, but it was later revealed that Jernigan was battling the flu and had side effects from the medicine he was given for the affliction. Fans and Lake City residents alike flocked to Jernigan’s Facebook page to wish him luck on his next venture after the news broke on Thursday. Jernigan also left the fans with a personal message about his decision. “All I have I gave...it was a blessing being able to wear that spear on my helmet for 3 years these were by far the best 3 years of my life I couldn’t have been blessed with a better group of guys to do it with. I’m gonna miss the hell out yall boys n running out of that tun-nel but I have been blessed enough to be in a great situ-ation and I will chase my dream and go pro....#loco-ocho#noleblooded,” Jernigan wrote on his Facebook page. The comment received more than 200 likes. Jernigan did not return repeated phone calls made by the Lake City Reporter on Thursday.

Bryant honoredBy BRANDON FINLEYbfinley@lakecityreporter.comColumbia High senior Nae Bryant was honored before the Lady Tigers game against Madison County High on Thursday. Although the Lady Tigers lost, 50-39, it was still a spe-cial moment for the senior. “Over the last few years she has grown as a lead-er,” Columbia head coach Michael Reynolds said. “She’s shown leadership without every complain-ing and makes us a better team.” Bryant finished with six rebounds in the contest. Au’maria Kelly led the Lady Tigers with 14 points in the game.

My boyfriend of two years, “Clint,” recently brought a large framed picture of his deceased wife into our home. He placed it on his dresser in front of framed photos of us together. His wife died three years ago. We are living together in a condo Clint bought for me. He made it clear from the beginning that he didn’t want to move me into “her house.” Clint also still wears his wedding ring. He carries guilt and doesn’t seem to have made closure. I told him I don’t feel comfort-able with her picture “look-ing at us.” He doesn’t think there should be a problem. Should I move on? — IN THE SHADOWS DEAR IN THE SHADOWS: That Clint still wears his wedding ring tells me he may not have accepted his wife’s death. How sad for him. Ask him to move his wife’s picture to a room other than the bedroom because, while he doesn’t think it’s creating a prob-lem, it is creating one for YOU. If he can’t bring him-self to do that -and join a grief support group -then you should consider mov-ing on. DEAR ABBY: Enough with the problems! It’s time you printed a positive letter. I’m an active, friendly senior who lives alone, but I’m not lonely. I have many friends of all ages and a devoted family. Why? Because as I traveled through many states dur-ing my life, I reached out to people along the way. The saying, “If you want a friend, be a friend,” is true. If we want friends, we can’t sit back and wait for people to come to us. Smile, speak up, pay a sincere compliment -just communicate! If you do, the majority of people will respond positively. I socialize with people my age in church circles, card clubs and dining-out groups who can’t under-stand why I’m always so busy. They don’t reach out except to people they already know. As people get older, that group is constantly shrinking. Join a religious group, com-munity clubs and organiza-tions. Volunteer to read at schools and libraries. Visit a senior group or center. Many people of all ages fear they won’t be accepted. But if they show up with a friendly attitude, they will be. You have to contribute -whether it’s with a smile, an opening remark or some other wel-coming gesture. I served in the military, taught Sunday school, led Girl Scouts, garden clubs, church and neighborhood groups while following my husband through eight states and raising three children. My husband was often away in his business, but we had a strong, sup-portive marriage. He joined me in many activities when he could be home. I think many people have forgotten we must give in order to get. When we reach out to others, most of the time those people reach back. — NOT LONELY IN WOODSTOCK, ILL. DEAR NOT LONELY: It’s easy to see why you have a wide circle of friends. Your positive ener-gy leaps off the page. There are two types of people in the world: those who come into a room and their attitude says, “Here I am!” and those who come into a room and their attitude says, “There you are!” You are one of the latter. If people want a warm welcome, they should keep in mind that the happier they are to see oth-ers, the happier others will be to see them. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are a young couple, married almost two years. He recently told me he isn’t happy with me anymore and that he may want to leave. He won’t tell me why. He says he doesn’t know why. It was a complete shock to me. He refuses to seek marriage counseling and has dealt with a lot of depression for which he won’t seek help, either. We have a child, and I am now pregnant again. It hasn’t changed his thoughts about leaving. What should I do for myself and our children? What can I do to help my husband change his mind? I’m still deeply in love with him. — CONFUSED IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR CONFUSED: I can only imagine how painful this must be for you. Because your hus-band won’t see a counselor about your marriage or do anything about his depres-sion, then YOU should. And when you do, start figuring out a “plan B” for how you will support your children if it becomes necessary. You should also consult an attorney who can help you ensure that your husband lives up to his responsibilities if he does decide to leave. The reason for your husband’s ambivalence will become apparent in time. You may love him deeply, but for your sake and that of your children, it’s important you stay calm and rational. DEAR ABBY: My brother-in-law is a registered sex offender. I am uncomfort-able having him stay at our house with my husband and me and our children. My mother-in-law insists we need to forgive him and let him stay. I hate putting my husband in the middle (it is his sister’s husband), but I do not want him under our roof overnight. Am I right to refuse, or do I let him stay and be on major guard? — MOMMY IN MEMPHIS DEAR MOMMY: As a mother, it is your job to protect your children. Because you feel your brother-in-law might be a danger to them, he should sleep elsewhere -and “for-giveness” has nothing to do with it. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 17-year-old girl, turning 18 soon. Ever since I started high school, my family has pressured me to do my best in everything I do. Some examples: my grades, hav-ing the perfect boyfriend and being first in sports. I know they want the best for me. But I’m a human being. I sometimes make mistakes. At the same time, I don’t want to disappoint them. What should I do? Should I tell them to get off my back or continue to accept their pressure? — TEEN IN TURMOIL, TULSA, OKLA. DEAR TEEN: Your parents probably push you because they want you to get a college education. Good grades, various activ-ities and a talent for sports can make you a more attractive candidate. There are ways to tell your parents to ease up without saying, “Get off my back.” Your message might be better received if you said to them what you wrote to me: “I know you want what’s best for me. I don’t want to disappoint you. But I’m a human being and I sometimes make mistakes. I love you, but the pressure is getting to me.” It’s not hostile, and they may hear what you’re saying without becoming defensive. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21April 19): Look straight ahead and don’t stop until you have completed everything on your to-do list. Don’t let interference sidetrack you. Step away from anyone who is unpre-dictable or posing a prob-lem. Focus, achieve and conquer. +++ TAURUS (April 20May 20): You’ve got what it takes to succeed so don’t wait for things to happen; be the instigator. An indus-trious attitude will give you the clout you need to get others interested in what you are doing. Romance should make your day complete. +++ GEMINI (May 21June 20): A change of scenery will give you something to think about. Look at locations that have something to offer person-ally and professionally. Don’t limit the possibili-ties. Expand your current plans. A private matter is likely to be revealed. Defend your principles. +++ CANCER (June 21July 22): Offer what you can, but don’t take on responsibilities that will stand between you and your goals. It’s important that you leave room for socializing and sharing with someone you love. An idea you have will bring you good fortune. ++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Being tight-lipped will help you avoid controversy with peers or superiors. Put your effort into your work, not the uncertainty going on around you. Consider what you enjoy doing that may have potential to lead to greater prosperity. Sell your ideas. ++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Self-improvement, making a difference to others and dealing with the young and the old in your circle will bring you the greatest satisfaction. Relationships can take an unusual turn if you add a little romance into the mix. Let happiness transpire. +++++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Size up your situation at home and look for alternatives that will best suit your needs. Don’t let anyone bully you into something you don’t want to do. Put more emphasis on your surroundings and making them stressful and more convenient. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Set your sights on whatever will make you happy and head in that direction. Let your thoughts be heard and your intentions laid out for those involved in your plans. Put love and romance at the top of your list. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Re-evaluate what you know and how you are using your knowl-edge and skills. You may want to make a couple of adjustments if it will help you receive what you are worth. A move, change of location or more diverse marketing will pay off. +++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Time spent with those you like to col-laborate with the most personally or profession-ally will help you make an important decision regard-ing your future. An impul-sive individual will be a warning of what’s to come. Choose wisely. +++++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Charity begins at home. Before you rush off to help others, you must take care of your needs first. You can make adjustments to your resi-dence that will encourage you to pursue a goal you have yet to accomplish. ++ PISCES (Feb. 19March 20): Sharing your thoughts will help you make a good decision regarding your attributes and how best to use them to get ahead. Contracts and settlements can be made and promises will be honored. Ask and you shall receive. ++++ Happy Birthday: Where there is a will, there is a way, and you’ll stop at nothing until you get what you want. Your determination and passion will outshine any competi-tion you face. Travel and communication, however, must be dealt with care-fully. Injury and insult is apparent if you don’t proceed with caution and do your best to avoid argu-ments. Your numbers are 4, 10, 19, 21, 33, 37, 46.
