By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.comState officials were turned away by the Lake City VA Medical Center last month when they tried to inspect hospital records there, according to a report from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. Inspectors from AHCA, the states chief health policy and planning agency, visited VA centers in Lake City and Gainesville on April 14 on orders from Gov. Rick Scott. Scotts office said the action was prompted by reports of deaths at VA centers nationwide due to delays in veterans healthcare. However, state inspectors were not allowed to review records at the facilities and inspectors left both hospitals shortly after arriving, according to an AHCA news release.Privacy restrictionsThe agency was looking to perform an onsite review FILEState inspectors were turned away from the Lake City VA Medical Center last month. rfSpecial section insideVA rebuffs state inquiry AHCA inspectors turned away at Lake City Facility.

The 2014 hurricane season starts June 1, and county officials, constitutional officers, first responders and support staff gathered Thursday morning to discuss plans should a storm hit close to home. Social media is going to be a legitimate way of providing information to the public, but we want people to understand its not going to eliminate our traditional ways newspapers, radio stations and television, said Shayne Morgan, Columbia County emergency management director. Social media is not taking that away, but were enhancing what we do with it because so much of the population is reliant on social media. However, there are still a lot of folks that dont rely on social media and we still have to get the message out. Morgan said the Citizens Information Centers emergency hotline number, which people call for the latest information, will remain in service. Social media is a way [to communicate] that we havent done in the past, but its just to augment what we already do and give people that dont listen to the radio, or read the newspaper Preparing for storm season Social media will play role locally in disaster updates.

Officials say the six men jumped into a life raft Thursday morning after their 37-foot boat caught fire. Another boater found the men and helped bring them safely to shore. One of the victims suffered a leg injury. A mayday from the boat only gave officials a partial GPS location before the men lost their signal. But the boaters were able to use another device that transmits an electronic emergency distress signal and GPS coordinates, which allows rescuers to pinpovtint a boaters exact location and ID the vessel and its owner. Coast Guard officials later searched for the mens boat but believe it sank.Boy put hand sanitizer in teachers water, cops say LAKELAND A Lakeland middle school student is accused of putting hand sanitizer in a cup of water on his teachers desk. The Polk County Sheriffs Office says the 14-year-old boy squirted hand sanitizer into the water when the teacher stepped outside the classroom to talk to the Crystal Lake Middle School dean of students on Tuesday. The arrest affidavit notes that when she returned to her desk, she took a sip of water and noticed that it had a funny taste. She took the lid off the cup and detected the odor of hand sanitizer, which also sits on her desk. She went to the hospital after experiencing a headache and stomachache. Two students told investigators they saw the teen put the hand sanitizer into the water. He was arrested Wednesday.4th case of mosquitoborne disease logged WEST PALM BEACH Floridas fourth case of the mosquito-borne disease chikungunya fever has been recorded in Palm Beach County.

Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & STATE FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 23-24, 2014 3A By JARED LEONEAssociated Press TAMPA With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at his side, Florida Gov. Rick Scott pledged Thursday to spend $1 billion upgrading the states ports over his two terms in office if he is re-elected. Speaking at Port Tampa Bay to about 50 hard-hatted port employees, Scott made a cam paign speech that called for dredging the ports channels and improving its container yard and petroleum facility. Its all about jobs for our families, Scott said. The projects would create 525 construction jobs, retain 2,500 existing ones and poten tially create an additional 1,400, Scott said. He said the state has already spent more than $640 million on Floridas ports since he took office in 2011. It is hoped locally that improvements to Jaxport will lead to creation of an inland port at the North Florida Intermodal Park in Columbia County. The port plan is the first of several political initiatives Scott plans to announce as he works on his re-election campaign. Christie, chairman of the Republican Governors Association and a possible 2016 presidential candidate, vowed to come to Florida as much as Scott feels is necessary to help him win re-election. Scott and Christie took turns taking shots at former Gov. Charlie Crist, who was elected as a Republican in 2006 but is now seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Scott. Unlike other races across the country, you have a clear choice, Christie said. Youve seen what happened when Crist was in office. Scott blames Crist for the states economic downturn, which saw unemployment rise from 3.5 percent when he took office in January 2007 to 11.1 percent when he left office four years later about 2 percent age points above the nation al average. The states latest unemployment rate of 6.2 per cent is just below the national average. Crist campaign spokesman Kevin Cate issued a statement Thursday criticizing Scotts desperate attacks, pointing out that the states unemploy ment rate had started to fall during Crists final months in office. Floridas economic recov ery began under Charlie Crist because he had the right prior ities education, the middle class, and saving the jobs of first responders, Cate said. As soon as Rick Scott was elected, his first budget cut education by $4.8 billion so he could give tax breaks to his corporate con tributors. Because Rick Scott only cares about handouts for his friends, our economy has lost jobs that would have been created through high-speed rail, expanding access to affordable care, and investing in education. Gov. Scott pledges $1 billion for ports a way that they can still keep in touch with whats going on, Morgan said. Morgan said the meet ing repeated twice throughout the morning allowed him to meet new people who will have roles should a event threaten or hit the area. During the meeting, representatives from local agencies told of prepara tion levels for the season and of any changes or new protocols that will be used during the season. Many agency repre sentatives spoke about saturated conditions from unusually high amounts of rain, and how addition al rain from a hurricane or tropical storm could impact the area. Morgan noted that the cone of error used to track a storms probable path, only tracks the eye of a storm and is only an average of all the different models provided through the weather service. Its not tracking inten sity or size, he said. Even though the path of the storm may take it well off the Gulf or Atlantic coast, if its a big enough storm we could still see impacts even if its 400-500 miles out either away. Morgan also warned about complacency in hur ricane season preparation since forecasters have pre dicted a less active hurri cane season. When we had these elements before was 1992 with an El Nino and thats when a storm named Andrew came through South Florida and wreaked all kinds of havoc, he said. We dont want people to look at the forecasts and breathe a sigh of relief and think they dont have to worry about hurricanes this year because forecasts says its going to be a less active year. It only takes one to have a bad day. By MEGAN REEVESmreeves@lakecityreporter.com A father of six was arrested Wednesday after one of his chil dren walked into the Lake City Police Department and reported physical and emotional abuse. Ernest Simmons, 58, was arrested on three counts of cruel ty toward a child and three counts of child neglect, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs Office media release. The investigation began on Tuesday when a juvenile walked into LCPD at about 8:15 a.m. reporting abuse, according to an arrest report. The juvenile said Simmons keeps the chil dren, all girls, locked in the garage and yard and they are not allowed to enter the house until 8:30 p.m. Authorities were also told the children cannot enter the house, even to use the bathroom, and are restricted to the garage on weekends. On investigation, sheriffs dep uties reported human feces in the front yard at 4982 NW Lake Jeffery Road and found roach infestation, spoiled food and lack of hygiene products within the home. The state Department of Children and Families was noti fied and the girls, all between six and 16 years old, were removed from the residence. All six children were sleeping in one bedroom even though the home has three, the report said. The children also told police they were forced to get dressed in the garage. Deputies interviewed the children separately and found most of them had injuries from Simmons and reported being afraid of him. Their injuries included Simmons fingernail marks on their skin, and scars and bruises from bats, the water hose and a frying pan, the report said. They told police they are hit daily and called stupid by Simmons, the report said. Only one of the six children denied abuse by Simmons and said she is not afraid of her father. She said they have only been given spoiled food once or twice before and arent always locked out of the house. The child said they share a room because the other room is for guests, which they havent had in four years, according to the report. After interviewing the children, deputies confronted Simmons. He denied that he has ever spanked the children. He denied that they are left outside, according to the arrest report. [Simmons] continued to lie about even basic facts in this case, including where the chil dren slept. Deputies reported severe bug infestation in the bedroom and kitchen. The report said 12 roaches were in plain sight in one room the afternoon they visited and that the bathroom was filled with mildew and feces, with no soap or towels. Simmons is currently being held in the Columbia County Detention Facility on $90,000 bond. The investigation is active with additional charges expected, the report said. HURRICANEContinued From 1ALocal man faces charges for child abuse SimmonsBy MEGHAN BARRAssociated PressNEW YORK A slower-than-usual hurri cane season is expected this year because of an expected El Nino. The El Nino, which warms part of the Pacific every few years and changes rain and tem perature patterns around the world, will likely reduce the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in New York City.Cooler temperatures on the surface of the Atlantic Ocean compared with recent years will also lower the probability of hurricane formation. El Nino helps to reduce the ability of storm systems coming off Africa to strengthen into tropical storms and hur ricanes, said Dr. Gerry Bell, NOAAs forecaster. Forecasters predicting slow season but has yet to receive the documents we were look ing to receive, AHCA Secretary Elizabeth Dudek said in a prepared statement. Thomas Wisnieski, director of the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, said AHCA was turned away due to federal laws concerning patient priva cy. There is a distinction between state and federal agencies, so I can give out nothing about patients as far as records, he said. Shelisha Coleman, press secretary for AHCA, said she is unaware of the privacy restrictions Wisnieski spoke of. She said although the VA is a federal agency, AHCA is knowledgeable about VA patient needs and has the expertise to help. The governor wants answers and we are firm ly committed to provid ing those answers with our expertise to assess the issues going on, she said. We regulate over 200 medical centers, so we have the knowledge to inspect and improve these facilities. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City, said she shared Scotts con cerns. The health and safe ty of our veterans should be a priority of every Floridian, she said. Therefore, I support Gov. Scotts efforts to make sure our veterans are treated with digni ty, respect and the best healthcare our country can provide.Secret waiting listSerious problems have been reported at VA medical centers around the nation, including a Phoenix VA clinic where about 40 patients alleged ly died while waiting for appointments, according to news reports. Administrators at the Phoenix VA are alleged to have kept two waiting lists, one that showed patients receiving care shortly after requesting it, the other reflecting the actual wait times, which were considerably longer. After press reports sur faced earlier this month of a handwritten waiting list at the Malcom Randall VA Regional Medical Center in Gainesville, AHCA was again sent there by Scott, and was again turned away. I am appalled to learn that Floridas brave vet erans have been unnec essarily forced to wait for care they deserve to have provided timely, Scott said in a prepared state ment May 16. The dis covery of a secret waiting list further heightens my concerns about the feder al VA hospital system and how it is failing Floridas veterans. Wisnieski said refer ences to a secret wait list were a misrepresentation of the facts. He prefers to call it a paper patient recall list, saying it con tains names of established patients who need to be seen more than 119 days after their initial appoint ments. Administrative reviewHe said patients who need to be seen more immediately are logged in the computer sched uling system, which can only hold appoint ments up to 119 days in advance. Wisnieski said all patients are seen by a trained clinician who is certified to make deci sions about each patient based on their assess ment and the individuals specific medical needs. When a patient needed an appointment that was too far off to fit in the system, VA clerks had to find a way to still get them scheduled, he said. These employees found a way to make sure employees didnt fall through the cracks and had the ingenuity to make sure patients were seen in the order they needed to be seen in, he said. They wanted to make sure that the patients were seen and we werent giving them the tools. There was no delay in receiving care, he said, and the list was not secret. Wisnieski said the employees responsible for the list will not be reprimanded, but will be retrained on the sched uling systems to ensure there will be no more paper lists. There will be an administrative review of our entire process, he said. They will be super vised and made sure to be using the scheduling program appropriately. After being denied access in Lake City and Gainesville, AHCA made a Freedom of Information Act request to the Gainesville VA on April 30. Twenty-four days later, the VA has yet to acknowl edge the request, AHCA said. Coleman said the FOIA request was for details on the processes of the facil ity in regard to patient schedules and reports. AHCA has visited four other VA hospitals in Florida, including: West Palm Beach VA Medical Center, Bay Pines Medical Center, James A. Haley Veterans Hospital and the Miami VA Medical Center. Inspectors have been denied access to records in each instance.

BY EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org I ts tempting sometimes to think, in George Wallaces famous put-down, that theres not a dimes worth of difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. No matter whether Republicans or Democrats control the government, the government keeps right on growing. A politician is a politician is a politician. But Americans for Tax Reform has analyzed the record and found that it does, indeed, make a differ-ence. Even when the difference is measured in dimes, the dimes accumulate. In states with a Democratic gov-ernor and a Democratic legislature, the people invari-ably pay higher taxes for runaway spending. In states with Republican governors and legislatures, the people generally pay lower taxes and enjoy more responsible spending. The Republican electoral surge in 2010 expanded from nine to 21 the number of states where the party held total control of the state government, and the difference is measurable. Over the past three years, Republican governors and state legislators slashed taxes by $38 billion, led by Gov. Rick Perry in Texas, who cut $12.5 billion of that total. Iowans got the largest tax cut in state history, more than $2.2 billion in propertyand income-tax relief. North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana eliminated their death taxes. Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas championed legislation that flattened the state income tax, easing the burden. Perhaps nowhere in America have taxes fallen further and faster than in North Dakota, where Gov. Jack Dalrymple shrank state individual income-tax rates by nearly a third and trimmed corporate income taxes by 20 percent. When and where they had total control, Democrats squeezed every penny they could out of their taxpay-ers. Blue-state governors approved more than $58 bil-lion in higher taxes, led by Gov. Pat Quinn of Illinois, who imposed more than $12 billion in new levies. Gov. Martin OMalley of Maryland follows close behind, no doubt dreaming of moving into the White House as President Obamas natural successor as big spender of other peoples money. Mr. OMalley has presided over the enactment of $11 billion in tax increases since 2008. Residents of California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Oregon are paying billions of dollars more to the state tax man to cover reckless spending sprees. General-fund expenditures in Democrat-con-trolled states rose nearly 10 percent between 2011 and 2013, while Republican-controlled states boosted out-lays by 6.2 percent. Add the rising costs of state entitlements, and the difference becomes stark. Democrat-controlled state s saw total state expenditures increase four times as fast as states with Republican governors and legislature s. By comparison, 10 red states found a way to cut exp enditures. Republicans are holding the line against t axes and spending gone wild. The alternative advanced by Democrats is spending at unsustainable levels. They re demonstrating why it does, indeed, matter who gover ns. Wide partisan divide on spending Q Washington Times LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Go ahead be a quitter I quit the high school varsity football team the week before we got our letters. I kept my real estate sales job selling resort property in the mountains, then the Gulf War broke out and the market fell apart. On the other hand, I transferred my equity from stocks to bonds, just in time to avoid the recession. Its bad to be a quitter. Or is it? Sometimes its the right thing to do, but sometimes its a big mis-take. How do you know if its the right time to quit, or to stick it out? Barbara Walters said in TV inter-views last week: Sometimes its the right thing to quit and move on. Sometimes its not! Ive been lucky over my career. Looking over her moment in the sun (some 50 years) she surely seems to have made the right choice of when to move on. In 1955 she became the first female host of the Today Show. She became the first female host of the eve-ning news with NBC in 1976. She explained that her co-host Harry Reasoner didnt like her, and she realized it was the right time to move on. She moved to take the helm of the 20/20 show, and for 25 years interviewed all the famous folks of the era, including world leaders and tyrants, starlets and criminals, and every president and first lady since Nixon. She blazed a trail for women in the industry. She announced last week that she will be leaving the View after six decades in the spotlight. Helpful as always, Barbara went on to say that she asks herself ques-tions when she considers quitting or moving on. They could be helpful to you if or when you are consider-ing a change. Here are three of her questions, and Ive added some of my own. Have I peaked? Are there better opportunities available? Better choices I could make? Are there signs that its the right time? Is the writing on the wall? What are the reasons I might stay? What are some reasons I should quit? What are the costs, to me, and to those close to me? How can I make a difference? How can I make the most of what I have to work with? As Kenny Rogers sings in his Gambler song, Youve got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em; know when to walk away, and when to run. What choices are you looking at? Is this your dream job, or do you hate going in in the morning? Hows that vacation plan working out for you? Can you afford it this year? Are you happy where youre living, or is it time to pack up and choose a new and better place? Loyalty and dependability are good things, but sometimes you and those close to you may be better off with that move youre thinking about! Sleep on it. Talk about your options with someone close to you. Mankind wants you to be in the place thats right for you, and for all of us! Let Ukrainians decide own fate A s Ukrainians prepare to vote in Sundays presidential election, Russia is sending mixed signals about whether it will respect their right to self-deter-mination. President Vladimir Putin has announced that he has ordered Russian troops to move back from the border after planned spring exercises. Meanwhile, Russian dip-lomats are signaling that Moscow would be willing to negotiate with the winner of the election. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov specifically indicated a willingness to deal with the front-runner, Petro Poroshenko. Those are encouraging signs. They suggest that the calibrated sanctions the United States and its European allies have imposed on prominent Russian figures with threats of broader sanctions if Russia undermines the election may have had some success in checking fur-ther Russian adventurism. But parts of eastern Ukraine are still under the control of pro-Russia separatists who may be taking orders from Russian special forces. Putin could do more to ensure that separatists dont prevent Ukrainian citizens from casting their ballots. ... Given the historic ties between Ukraine and Russia, its understand-able that Putin would advocate that the new government of Ukraine embrace measures such as greater decentralization and official status for the Russian language. But that civilized conversation will be impos-sible unless Russia recognizes that Ukrainians have the first and final say about their political arrange-ments. Q Los Angeles Times To the Editor:Here we go again. A city employee, who happened to be black, was not hired for a position for which he hoped to have been cho-sen. His brother, a bishop, claimed his brother was not interviewed for the position, and I quote, because he was black. The article on this matter was in your May 20 edition. In the article it was mentioned one of the requirements to apply for this position was that a person must possess a valid Class A commercial drivers license, which his brother did not have. Rather than playing the race card because his brother was not chosen to fill the vacant position I would like to suggest that Bishop Williams do two things for the taxpayers of this country, and challenge his fel-low pastors/preachers to do the same. Firstly, preach again and again to the students in their congregation the importance of studying hard in school in order to become success-ful in the job market instead of a burden on the taxpayer. I worked for 44 years, am still paying taxes, and am tired of supporting anyone who is too lazy to pay their own way. Secondly, preach again and again to all the congregation the fact that four out of five babies born to black mothers are out of wedlock and this is unacceptable, indicates a lack of self-esteem, and is also a burden on the taxpayer. I know Bishop Williams mother and father and know they would agree with me on these two points as they worked most of their lives as I have and paid their fair share of taxes also. Charles A.

FAITH & VALUES Friday & Saturday, May 23 & 24, 2014 www.lakecityreporter.com 5A For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the pres ent age, looking for the blessed hope and glori ous appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zeal ous for good works. Titus 2:11-14 A s we approach the end of the Church Age, we find that the Devil is working overtime. Christians the world over are increas ingly recognizing that we are about to step off the great span of time that connects eternity past with eternity future. Our Groom has nearly finished preparing our mansions and must have His hand on the door knob as He anticipates greeting His bride when He calls her to meet Him in the air. After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this, Rev. 4:1. Please read 1 Thess. 4:16. Verses 17-18 say, Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. These are exciting days in which to serve God, for we see ourselves as the terminal gener ation. Even the apostate church is speaking in guarded whispers about these matters. However, not all is rosy. The Devil is working feverishly to divert Christians from their ministries. He has known mankinds every hot button since the days of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and he has practiced pressing those buttons for millenniums. Almost every week, I hear from born-again Christians who do not understand how the Devil can be so effective, so wily, so subtle in his attacks. Often the saints do not even realize that it is the Devil at all. They have become so diverted by the trials and tribulations of their lives that they no longer think in spiritual terms. Many have taken their eyes off Jesus like Peter when walking on the water (Matt 14:17-30); stopped studying His word (2 Tim. 2:15); and, not praying as they ought (James 5:16). They are simply bewildered as to why their lives are suddenly so awry. Some are bitter toward God for allowing them to suffer in the ways they suffer. Others are profoundly depressed, and yet others find themselves in the grip of utter despair. No, all is not rosy in Gods Church, but we can all find strength and solace and great hope, even in times of grievous trouble, if we know where to look and where to walk. Great hope is what the believer has to rely on. Without great hope we would all be most miserable. Hope is confident expectation of the return of the Lord for His Church. Hope is the happy anticipation of good. Throughout the New Testament hope is used for our encouragement, so that we may walk steadfast in these days when the god of this world influences us so strong (2 Cor. 4:3-4). According to 2 Timothy 4:8 a special crown is given to all those who are looking for His appearing. Are you? Looking for hope? BIBLE STUDIES Hugh Sherrillemsfirstname.lastname@example.org Q Hugh G. Sherrill, Pastor Philippi Baptist Church1444 County Road 18 A lthough the Bible clashes with some scientific theories, I think many would be surprised at how many times the Bible agrees with science. Scientists say before the Big Bang there was nothing, or they do not know what existed. That makes sense; if the Big bang was the beginning of everything, then before everything existed there must have been nothing. The Bible says God called into being that which does not exist, Romans 4:17. Christians believe the uni verse was cre ated by God ex nihilo. Ex nihilo is a Latin phrase meaning from nothing. According to physicists, the Big Bang was a tremendous release of energy that resulted in the creation of the uni verse. One of the byprod ucts of expended energy is light. The Big Bang sounds similar to the Creation narrative where God said, Let there be light; and there was light, Genesis 1:3. Scientists said the Big Bang happened 13.7 bil lion years ago, but recent ly changed that to 13.81 billion years ago. That means their first theory was wrong and they did not know how old the universe was then. But even the new figure is an estimate based on a host of factors remaining constant for the last 13.81 billion years. Since it is reasonably possible things have not remained con stant, including scientists theories, I am inclined to believe they do not really know when it began. I am sure God knows when He created the universe, but Hes not saying, just that He was there to make it happen. Theoretical physicist Dr. Lawrence Krauss of Arizona State University says all of the matter in the universe came into existence within three minutes after the Big Bang. Thats fast. It makes you wonder why the Bible says it took God six days. But God was busy doing other things besides making matter, like creating every living thing. Scientists say the earth is getting warmer. It is a fact that global tempera tures are hotter than they were just a few hundred years ago during the Little Ice Age, which according to NASA occurred from about 1550 to 1850 AD. The planet is warmer pre sumably because of indus trial emissions and auto mobile exhaust, et cetera. But the temperatures today are barely warmer than they were during the Medieval Warm Period from 950 to 1250 AD. A thousand years ago the planet was as warm as it is now without factories and cars. It may be an incon venient truth that we have nothing to do with global warming. I do not know if man kind can destroy itself, but I do not believe that is how things will end. Science and the Bible agree that the universe as we know it will come to an end. Scientists dont know when, and again God is not saying, but He has told us the heavens will be destroyed by burn ing, and the elements will melt with intense heat, 2 Peter 3:12. It looks like global warming is going to get us after all. Biblical perspective on global warming CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS Gary Kingwaywordpastor@yahoo.com Q Gary B. King is the pastor of WayWord Ministries here in Lake City. He welcomes com-ments and can be reached at email@example.com. Science and the Bible agree that the universe as we know it will come to an end. Scientists dont know when and God is not saying.
Page Editor: Emily Lawson, 754-0424 LAKE CITY REPO RTER FAITH & VALUES FRIDAY & SATURDAY, MAY 23-24, 2014 6A Part two(I encourage you to re-read part one on this subject, printed Friday, April 11, before reading this article.) I s it true, as one preach er said to one lady, You have been mar ried too many times to be saved? Many have made the mistake of changing what the actual sin in Matthew 19:9 is. Instead of accept ing what the text says, that adultery is committed in the two acts of putting away and marrying anoth er, people say that adul tery is the sex act and is committed repeatedly in the subsequent marriage and therefore is a sin not repented of. Jesus was specific in saying a man who (1) puts away his wife, except for fornication, and (2) mar ries another, commits adultery. The change originat ed historically with the Council of Trent (16th century). They ruled that marriage is a sacrament and is unbreakable. Thus, the divorced person is still married to the first spouse (in the eyes of God) and the next marriage is an adulterous relationship. This contradicts the Bible text. Matthew 19:6b says significantly, Let not, not cannot. It is important to under stand mans theories, opinions and councils cannot overrule the word of God. The facts stand as the Bible states them. Jesus says, adultery occurs when a man is unfaithful or disloyal in putting away his innocent wife and marries another. In Mark 10:11, Jesus says that man who does this commits adultery against her. So He was talking about a sin committed against the wife put away, not a sin commit ted with the next wife. Asking if adultery can be stopped, is not the same as asking Can the adultery be undone? No, it cannot be undone. Yes it can be stopped. Any sin can be and should be repented of forgiven and not repeated in the future. The only answer to it is repentance and a change of behavior. Forgiveness is by Gods grace. When God said, I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and lawless deed I will remember no more, and then His word gives examples where this particular sin was forgiven in that way, there is no reason to have any more questions or doubts about the matter. Adultery is a forgivable sin. If one who was divorced, has now become one who is committed to one mate for life and is penitent about his former sins, that person has come from the wrong way and is now on Gods way. Such a person can rest assured that God will keep His promise to forgive. Understand, there will not be anyone in hell whom God has forgiven. For those outside Christ, who come to Jesus by faith, repenting of sins, and are immersed into Christ (Acts 2:38-39), they are forgiven of every sin (by grace). Christians, who sin must repent and pray and rest in His grace. There is no evidence in the New Testament, that people were required to divorce again to show proof of repentance. Grow in his grace.

I n our world filled with conflict, I believe that God calls his children to be peacemakers. To work as ambassador for peace, not by avoiding or ignoring conflict, but to learn practical strat egies to help those in conflict find resolution and reconciliation. In light of this, our focus today hones in on collaboration. Collaboration works by integrating the ideas of multiple people. On a large scale, collaboration calls for a significant time commitment: bringing multiple people to the table to seek a solution acceptable to everyone. This is the ultimate goal of collaboration. Where time is limited, this approach may not be appropriate sometimes a decision must be made before time allows everyone to have a say! However, it is absolutely necessary when making decisions that seriously impact a persons life, large groups of people, or when setting precedence. One familiar example of collaboration is the jury. A Biblical example of collaboration is found in Acts 15, which records the conflict between Paul and Barnabas and a group of men from Judea over the issue of circumcision. In his article, Biblical Conflict Resolution 101 Stephen Blandino points out the following steps: Q Let both sides of the story be heard: Paul and Barnabas reported how God had used them to see Gentiles converted. Believers who were part of the Pharisees explained how the Gentiles must be circumcised and required to obey the Law of Moses (Acts 15:2-5). Q Participate in Discussion: Acts 15:6-7. Q Present the Facts: Peter addressed the crowd with facts: the work God was doing among the Gentiles and the reality that God had accepted the non-circumcised Gentiles by giving them the Holy Spirit (Acts 15:7-11). Q Provide Further Evidence: Paul and Barnabas shared the miraculous signs and wonders God had done through them among the Gentiles. Then, James spoke up and quoted the prophets to confirm the work of the Spirit among the Gentiles (Acts 15:12-18). Q Put Together a Communication Strategy that Brings Clarification: After the solution was articulated, the apostles and elders formed a team to deliver a letter to the Gentile believers in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia. The letter brought clarification to the entire situation and provided a solution that everyone found acceptable. Two key elements that will make or break the collaboration process is the willingness of those involved to participate with an open mind, and having respect for those with different opinions.

Suffer well Love your enemies, Jesus said. And pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44 T his command is more than just the golden rule, treat ing others how you want to be treated. And the prayers Jesus called for are not prayers that your enemies would leave you alone, stop what their doing, or suffer any harm as a result. Praying for those who persecute you is Jesus life-giving command that can release you from any bitterness you hold toward your enemies, soften your heart to those who hate you and help you meet them where they are. When my pastor said last week for us to suffer well, I hadnt the slightest clue what he meant. Praying for your enemies is suffering well. Letting Jesus take the bondage of bitterness and break the chains of hatred will release you and enable you to suf fer in and for his name.

The starters will take the field in the first half before both teams begin to make substitutions in the second half, much like last years game. Columbia head coach Brian Allen said one thing that might make the game a little different this season is depth. Theyre just like us in that they dont have a ton of depth, Allen said. Nobody will play the game in its entirety. We both have some guys that dont have a bunch of playing time. Fort White head coach Demetric Jackson said that his team is ready to go, but also alluded to trying to find answers for the second unit. I think our first unit is ready to go, Jackson said. We are trying to piece together some JV guys. Both teams are looking for a clean football game. We want to be fundamentally sound, take care of the ball, and see if we can play with effort on defense, Jackson said. Allen said its a good chance to see some things they werent able to in the Purple & Gold Game. Its going to be a good chance to see live punting and field goals, Allen said. Well have PATs. Its pretty much the same format as last year, and there prob-ably wont be much differ-ent. We just want to execute and show up. Neither coach admitted to any game planning with each school focused more on what will happen in the fall over bragging rights from a spring game. Jackson and Fort White will be using the game as a way to identify a few more playmakers on offense for the Indians. We are trying to find guys who can make plays from an offensive stand-point, guys who can find the end zone, Jackson said. He said that one way the Indians can identify those types of players is effort, both on offense and defense. It is about how hard you play, Jackson said. We want to play physical and tackle well. Allen said that the spring game is more about focus-ing on Columbia rather than what Fort White is going to throw at the Tigers. Im big into focusing on us, and that comes back to the way that Ive learned both as a player and an assistant coach, Allen said. We dont do any game planning for a spring game or even the classic. Some may take a peek, but I dont. Allen said its about knowing the assignments for his team and learning how to execute their system. Hes not focused on the scoreboard. If we teach it the right way, no matter what we see, we should be able to exe-cute against it, Allen said. Whatever the offensive scheme, well know how to attack it. If its taught right, and were doing our job, then we should be able to execute. The system wont change. Were going to do what we do and adjust on the fly. S aturdays spring game at Memorial Stadium will be as much a homecoming for Fort White coaches as for Columbia High. Indians head coach Demetric Jackson and assistant coaches Isiah Phillips and Dan Marsee saw all their playing time at Memorial Stadium when they attended CHS. Phillips spoke of the big crowds and having to wade through fans to get to the field. Jackson said Dennis Roberts once sent him a film of the 1990 Suwannee game at Memorial Stadium. He took a look at the film this week. It brought back memories, Jackson said. The place was packed. I made a few plays on that field. Jackson made more than a few, starting with a surprise beginning with coach Joe Montgomery. Jackson was scheduled to be the starting safety for the Tigers in 1990. On the Tuesday before the opening game, Columbias quarterback was found to be ineligible and Jackson was thrust under center. It was the first game I ever started, Jackson said. I was one of the quarterbacks in the spring game but all summer and fall I was playing safety. I hadnt gotten a whole lot of reps as back-up and none once fall camp started. Columbia won the opener against Andrew Jackson and went on to a 9-1 record and district championship. Jackson threw a late touchdown pass to beat Suwannee, 13-7, the last of the four Bulldog teams that won state. Columbia drew Lake Howell in the opening round of the playoffs. Lake Howell had upset an undefeated CHS team the year before at Memorial Stadium. Jackson helped the Tigers exact revenge, 21-18. Lake Howell was probably my breakout game, Jackson said. It was played on a Saturday afternoon and I rushed for well over 100 yards and threw for more than 100 yards. After the game, a Penn St. scout came up to me and said, Heck of a game son. You ever thought of becoming a Nittany Lion? In Jacksons senior year, Montgomery left the wagon loaded for Skip Wolf. The Tigers had to play powerhouses Apopka, Vero Beach, Raines and a still strong Suwannee. In district were Orange Park and Buchholz (state champion in 1990) when both were at the top of the heap. Jackson hit a two-point conversion on a hot pass to Antonio Bradwell to beat Apopka, 22-21. Vero Beach fell, 13-10, and Suwannee went easier, 25-14. Raines had quarterback Patrick Sapp. We were both being recruited to go to Clemson and a lot of other schools, Jackson said. On the first play of the game I broke an 80-yard touchdown run and I was saying like who is Patrick Sapp. The player tossed into the quarterback fray led the Tigers to an 18-4 record in his two years.

DEAR ABBY: My spouse and I, after many long years of school, advanced degrees and work in the corporate world, are now retired. We are (we hope) financially secure. Both of us have siblings who were less successful for various reasons. What obligation do hardworking people have toward their less successful siblings, especially one who has been a freeloader his entire life? Rusty sponged off his aging parents to keep from having to earn a decent living. We feel sorry for him, but its the bed he made for himself years ago when he took shortcuts. Were afraid if we give him a hand, hell expect an arm next time. As far as Im concerned, only Rustys laziness pre vents him from getting a part-time job to help pay the bills. If we give him money, well have to do it for the other siblings on both sides. I know this sounds uncharitable, but we worked for 40 years and struggled through everything life had to throw at us. We saved every penny we could and invested wisely. How do we deal with family members who can take care of themselves, but dont? -ANONYMOUS IN AMERICA DEAR ANONYMOUS: You decide on a case-by-case basis, unless all of your family members are like Rusty. And if they are, you sympathize, but dont subsidize. DEAR ABBY: Most of my childhood was spent with my grandparents, who raised me until I moved out at 21. I have always regard ed them as my true parents because they were always there for me. My biological parents were also a part of my life. I would visit them on weekends. I love them, too, and appreciate that they allowed me to have a stable childhood with my grandparents. I am engaged to be mar ried next summer, and I need to decide who should walk me down the aisle. Id like my grandfather to have that honor, but I dont want to hurt my father by not asking him to do it. What should I do when the time comes to make the decision? -NAMELESS IN THE MIDWEST DEAR NAMELESS: Consider asking both of them to walk you down the aisle. Im sure it would touch not only their hearts, but also those of your guests to see you honor your grandfather, who was your weekDAY father, as well as your dad, your weekEND father. DEAR ABBY: Organized religion has caused me many difficul ties throughout my life. I would like to distance myself from it as much as possible. I consider myself a religious independent. I believe in God, but I dont believe organized religion has anything to do with God. My question concerns my funeral. Since a funeral is an organized religious ceremony, is it possible to have one without clergy being present? Have you heard of anything like this, and what would you sug gest? WASHINGTON, D.C., READER DEAR READER: Instead of a funeral, many people choose to have a celebration of life, inde pendent from religion. Make sure your family and friends understand your wishes, then talk to a funeral home director and make pre-planning arrangements. DEAR ABBY: Im 16 and entering my junior year of high school. My boyfriend, Jonah, and I have been dating for almost a year and we would like to become sexually active, but Im scared condoms wont cut it. I have tried talking to my mom about it, but she doesnt think I should go on birth control. Abby, Im just trying to keep the risk of getting pregnant as low as possi ble. Im not sure my mom understands that. What should I do? I know for sure my mother will find out if I go to my doctor and talk privately about this with her. Please help me because Im just trying to protect myself. PRACTICAL TEEN IN NEW YORK DEAR PRACTICAL TEEN: You appear to be a levelheaded young woman who is trying to make mature decisions. Discussing sex with par ents can be difficult -not only for you, but also for them. If you are willing to talk about this with your moth er again, try using a mag azine, a TV show or my column as a jumping-off point to start the conver sation. Sometimes it may take more than one talk to feel comfortable disclosing your personal feelings and intentions. You should be able to get confidential health ser vices from your doctor or another health care provid er. Depending upon where you live, however, parental permission may be need ed. You will have to check to find out. In terms of birth con trol methods, hormonal birth control is effective when used correctly. But using hormonal birth control and a condom TOGETHER offers the best protection from both pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. For many years, I have recommended Planned Parenthood (plannedpar enthood.org) for reproduc tive health services, which include information, con traception, testing and edu cation about a full range of options for women, men and teens across the United States. Its services are confidential and com ply with relevant laws, which may vary from state to state. DEAR ABBY: Do you think its bad that my two girls dont see their father? I dont keep them from him. Hes welcome to see them, but he is now remarried and has never asked for them. He left our household 10 years ago. To be honest, the girls dont even talk about him anymore. Is it OK to let them go on with their lives with the family members who are in it? NEW MEXICO MOMMY DEAR NEW MEXICO MOMMY: Its sad that your daughters have no relationship with their father. However, because he has shown no interest in having one with them, you have no option but to let them go on with their lives. HOROSCOPES DEAR ABBY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Snap decisions, taking on too much and overreacting will all lead to regrets. Slow down, consider whats at stake and think matters through mentally, not emotionally. Resist anyone trying to push or take advantage of you. +++ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your private matters a secret. Focus on home, family and securing your position personally and professionally. Pick up skills, information or anything that will ensure future prospects. Keeping up with the fast-paced world we live in is essen tial. ++++ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Discriminate when it comes to helping oth ers. Dont let anyone play on your emotions or blackmail you into doing something questionable. You can offer suggestions, but do so for your benefit, not others. Love is on the rise. ++ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Strive for perfection, quality and uniqueness in all that you do. You will secure your position if you are reliable, entertaining and competitive. Dont let anger get the better of you. Its best to sidestep a no-win situation rather than waste time. +++++ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep moving and improv ing. Youll pick up valu able information watching the way others operate. Dont hesitate to update your skills, appearance or interests. Getting involved in a project will lead to new friendships. Love is on the rise. +++ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep a close watch on your financial, legal or health matters. The infor mation you receive may be misleading. Take a con servative approach and protect what you already have. Now is not the time to take a risk, even if it looks tempting. +++ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dont count on any one. Follow through with your promises, and keep on moving. Idle time will bring you down and lead to trouble. Use your head, your experience and your quick wit to stay ahead of any competition you face. Avoid the past. +++ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Explore new possibilities. Visiting unfa miliar places or people will open up all sorts of possibilities you hadnt considered in the past. Express your interest, but dont make a commitment or down payment that will bind you. +++ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your keen sense of timing and your abundance of energy will help you make choices and get things done. A personal update to your looks, lifestyle or love life will boost your ego and stimulate your imagina tion. +++++ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home and avoid any feud with friends, relatives and neighbors. Stick to your plans and focus on taking care of your domestic chores and personal pam pering. You deserve a break and should hide out where its safe and sound. ++ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Communicate with old friends. Remembering the past will help you move for ward. A change in the way you think and the goals you set can be quickly implemented into your routine. Positive, progres sive action will lead to a better future. +++ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Wheel and deal. Approach people you feel are the right ones to help you get a project up and running. Ask ques tions and address past issues that may stand in your way. Listen to your heart, but follow your head. +++ Happy Birthday: Size up your situation and make choices that will help you get things done. Focus on the end result, but dont lose sight of the guidelines offered. Cutting corners may seem wise at the time but in the end will be costly. Use your head and control impulsive behavior. Love is highlighted, but so is excess and possessive ness. Proceed with cau tion. Your numbers are 5, 13, 22, 24, 31, 39, 44.
