Robert Lewis Jr. Jeremy Lee AstrologoNotices of Sexual Predator Address Change: Happy Thanksgiving! To you and Your Family e Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) approved Progress Energy Floridas 2012 fuel costs the nal element of the total 2012 price. e overall price for a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month will be $123.19 beginning with January 2012 billing. is change comes after two years of bill reductions and represents a 3 percent increase compared to $119.34 per 1,000 kWh per month currently charged. e average commercial customer bill will increase 3 to 4 percent, and the average industrial customer bill will increase 4 to 5 percent. New prices will take e ect with the rst billing cycle in January 2012. e 2012 price re ects our prior decision to reduce short-term spending on the proposed Levy County nuclear project and is o set by an increase in fuel costs due to the unavailability of the Crystal River Nuclear Plant, said Vincent Dolan, president and CEO of Progress Energy Florida. We remain committed to return the Crystal River Nuclear Plant to service, as it is our lowest-cost generation unit and provides carbonfree electricity to the more than 1.6 million families and businesses that depend on us.Below is a summary of the approved clauses, based on a monthly, 1,000-kWh residential bill: New nuclear generation: $2.86; a $2.67 decrease of nearly 50 percent; Energye ciency programs: $2.88; an 11-cent decrease; Environmental compliance: $5.45; a 54-cent increase; Fuel: $48.60; a $3.99 increase; Purchased power: $11.74; a $2 increase. Previously, the PSC approved a nearly 50 percent reduction to the new nuclear generation charge, a slight reduction to the energy conservation charge and a modest increase to the environmental compliance charges. e companys environmental compliance charges recover the costs of environmental investments required by state and federal law. Environmental improvements at our two largest coal- red units, Crystal River 4 and 5, now allow the company to use lower-cost coal while reducing the plants average annual emissions by 80 percent (nitrogen oxides by approximately 93 percent and sulfur dioxide by approximately 97 percent).Public Service Commission Approves Fuel Cost IncreasesTebows FootballBy Geoffrey Grider I know we live in a cynical world. We have seen it all, done it all, won it all, lost it all. We are a people who are not easily impressed anymore. It is fashionable for athletes and movie stars to win the game or receive the award, and start the I just want to thank Jesus speech. Most of the time it fails to ring true. We usually see people who dont live a Godly life, thanking God for His blessing, and paying what amounts to mostly lip service. Our ears have grown numb to it, for the most part we have stopped listening. en someone like Tim Tebow shows up, and everything changes. By now, we all know his story. When his mom was pregnant with him, complications arose and she was urged, at the risk of her own life, to not bring the baby to term, but to abort it. She chose to trust God, and Tim Tebow was born. He was raised by Godly, Christian parents, and along the way rose to fame as a college football player in Florida. He seemed to be the Next Big Sure ing. en he got to the NFL and hit a brick wall that was wrapped in concrete, and reinforced with re-bar. Everything came to a grinding halt. Drafted to the Denver Broncos by a coach who then got red, Tim Tebow seem banished to the Phantom Zone behind quarterback Kyle Orton. en Orton imploded, and John Elway was forced to use Tebow. Only problem is Tebow is extremely shaky as a passer, with a 44% completion rating. Everyone in the league knows it. Even his own coach says it. But a funny thing happened on the way to what everybody knew would happen Tebow is on one, wild hot streak, and winning like crazy. Huh?..how does that happen? Tim Tebow is a lot of things. He is a football star, he is a son, he is a virgin, but most importantly he is not ashamed of the testimony of a life lived for Jesus Christ, his Saviour. He is a Christian in the biblical sense of the word. Not paying mere lip service, but backing up his words with the actions of a life being lived for God. He has brought the Lord he has served all his life along with him to the 50-yard line, and the world all of a sudden is getting a dose of the old-fashioned Gospel. God can be funny like that. It may be too early to tell, but it looks to me like God is sending the beginning glimmers of spiritual revival. After the game was over, players from both teams went on the eld, and in full view of millions of football fans glued to their sets, they kneeled and gave real thanks to the Holy God of Israel. When was the last time you saw that happen? As I watched last nights game, I didnt so much see a contest as I did a leading of the Holy Spirit, parting the Red Sea of opposition in a way that can only be described as miraculous. In the end it wasnt even about the victory, it was about giving God the glory. It was a most unusual game. But something is happening in Denver, and its not about football. Geo rey Grider is the founder and editor-in-chief of the blog at Now the End Begins. Tebow's Broncos and the Jets they defeated kneel in prayer after the game, together. School Employee Caught with Stolen School Property e Chie and Police Department received a call to report missing cheerleading mats back in August of 2011. Donna Brock of Chie and Middle School reported the theft of 3 cheerleading mats after checking with other sta members to make sure they were stolen. e value of the mats was $2,250. On Nov. 15, Sgt. Poppell of the Chie and Police Department received a call with information on where the stolen mats were located and proceeded to make a visit to the location. Upon arrival Sgt. Poppell and Major Al Graves checked out the property with permission from the wife of the suspected burglar, Joshua Barnes, who had lived there with Mrs. Barnes at one time. e mats were identi ed by the school as their property by photos taken at the residence. Barnes was still working at the Middle School at the time and was called to be questioned. After being Tim Tebow scores the game-winning touchdown against the Jets

FWCs Relocation Plan for Gopher Tortoises Public Input Deadline Nov. 28More exibility in relocating gopher tortoises may lead to more of the threatened, longlived tortoises being moved from areas about to be developed onto public conservation lands, so the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) on Nov. 17 approved revisions to gopher tortoise permitting guidelines to enable that. Todays approved revisions are part of the FWCs adaptive management strategy that balances the most e ective gopher tortoise conservation with the needs of Floridians, said Deborah Burr, Gopher Tortoise Management Plan Coordinator. e revisions to the permitting guidelines are also designed to achieve the conservation objectives for the management plan. One objective addresses decreasing gopher tortoise deaths on lands proposed for development through responsible relocation of the tortoises. Another objective calls for repopulating gopher tortoises on public conservation lands where they no longer occur or where densities are low. e revisions streamline the process for the Disturbed Site permit. is permit authorizes the relocation of gopher tortoises after sites have been prematurely cleared and before tortoises have been relocated. e FWC approved its rst management plan for gopher tortoises in September 2007, providing conservation measures to ensure gopher tortoises thrive in Florida. e plan also calls for permitting guidelines that enable Florida to meet the tortoises habitat needs now and in the future. Initially approved in 2008, the guidelines are revised as the FWC learns more about balancing the needs of gopher tortoises and people. e current revisions came after meetings with stakeholders during the past year. e input received was incorporated into the revisions approved by the Commission. Four years after adopting its rst Gopher Tortoise Management Plan, the FWC is also asking the public to share its thoughts on improving conservation of the gopher tortoise. Loss of habitat is the main threat to the gopher tortoises survival, and that plan will be updated in 2012. Florida has accomplished much for gopher tortoises in the past four years, including the humane relocation of more than 4,000 gopher tortoises from sites slated for development. Conserving the gopher tortoise is essential not only to the tortoise, which lives for up to 60 years, but to 350 other Florida species, such as the indigo snake and burrowing owl, which share and shelter in the tortoises extensive burrows. People with suggestions on revising the Gopher Tortoise Management Plan can review it and submit their ideas online at http://share.myfwc.com/GT2/Lists/Input on Revisions to the GT Mgmt Plan. Public input will be accepted through Nov. 28. For more information on the gopher tortoise, please visit MyFWC.com/GopherTortoise. Gopher Tortoise near his burrow.

The Levy County Journal4ANovember 24, 2011www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Alice in Liberal Land Thomas Sowell Creators SyndicateAlice in Wonderland was written by a professor who also wrote a book on symbolic logic. So it is not surprising that Alice encountered not only strange behavior in Wonderland, but also strange and illogical reasoning -of a sort too often found in the real world, and which a logician would be very much aware of. If Alice could visit the world of liberal rhetoric and assumptions today, she might nd similarly illogical and bizarre thinking. But people su ering in the current economy might not nd it nearly as entertaining as Alice in Wonderland. Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the world envisioned by todays liberals is that it is a world where other people just passively accept whatever change liberals impose. In the world of Liberal Land, you can just take for granted all the bene ts of the existing society, and then simply tack on your new, wonderful ideas that will make things better. For example, if the economy is going along well and you happen to take a notion that there ought to be more home ownership, especially among the poor and minorities, then you simply have the government decree that lenders have to lend to more low-income people and minorities who want mortgages, ending nicky mortgage standards about down payments, Obamas Half-Billion-Dollar Crony Drug Deal OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateWhat do you get when you mix Democratic fat-cat donations, Big Labor favors, pharmaceutical lobbying and Beltway business as usual? Answer: another toxic half-billion-dollar Barack Obama-approved crony deal. Move over, Solyndra. Here comes Siga-Gate. is latest Chicago-style payo on your dime involves a dubious smallpox drug backed by a liberal billionaire investor, along with a former union boss who was one of the White Houses most frequent visitors. eyre the 1 percent with 100 percent immunity from the selectively outraged Occupier mobs that purport to oppose partisan government bailouts and handouts to privileged corporations. Ronald Perelman is the New York Citybased leveraged buyout wheeler-dealer who controls Siga Technologies. He has donated nearly $130,000 mostly to Democrats over the past two election cycles alone, and he forked over $50,000 to pay for the presidents lavish inaugural parties. A Siga a liate pitched in nearly half a million more in contributions -65 percent of which went to Democrats -and the rms have spent millions on lobbying. Perelmans pharma company makes an experimental antiviral pill used by smallpox patients who received diagnoses too late to be treated with the existing smallpox vaccine. Smallpox experts cast doubt on the need for the drug given ample vaccine stockpiles, the remoteness of a mass attack and questions about its e cacy. But over the objections of federal contract negotiators, competitors and scientists, the Obama administration approved a lucrative $433 million no-bid deal for Siga in May. No other manufacturers were able to compete for the sole source procurement, according to the Los Angeles Times. e special arrangement was made after a competitor objected to the administrations violating small-business rules during a rst call for bids. ats right: Its yet another rigged giveaway from a Hope-and-Change champion who vowed on the 2008 campaign trail to end the abuse of no-bid contracts once and for all. Intensifying the culture-of-corruption stench: the critical role of Andy Stern. Hes the pro igate, corruption-coddling former head of the powerful Service Employees International Union -the 2.2 millionmember public-employee union powerhouse that he left in April 2010 with a mountain of debt and eroding rank-and- le pensions. After pouring some $60 million of workers dues into Democratic co ers, Stern was rewarded by Obama with a cozy spot on the White House de cit panel and dozens of visits to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue -including at least seven with the president, one with Vice President Joe Biden, and meetings with Obama Chief of Sta Rahm Emanuel, Biden Chief of Sta Ron Klain, OMB Director Peter Orszag, health czar aide Jennifer Cannistra and Valerie Jarretts former high-powered aide and Chicago fundraiser Tina Tchen. In a classic access-buying maneuver, Siga placed Stern on its board of directors in June 2010. Four months later, Siga nabbed an estimated $3 billion contract. By January of this year, Sigas stock had skyrocketed. e House GOP has been investigating the deal for months, which comes amid separate allegations of insider trading and political pro teering by investigative journalist Peter Schweizer. Stern and Perelman have been scratching each others backs for years. In the fall of 2006, the SEIU backed o organizing protests against AlliedBarton, a security guard rm in Philadelphia owned by a Perelman interest -and then remained quiet when the rm was bought out by a longtime SEIU nemesis, the Blackstone Group. According to the L.A. Times, which exposed the scandal over the weekend, Obamas top biodefense bureaucrat Nicole Lurie railroaded a key dissenter at the Department of Health and Human Services who ridiculed Sigas in ated projected pro t margins. Lurie soothingly reassured a whiny Siga executive that the most senior procurement o cial would take over and molli ed him in a letter: I trust this will be satisfactory to you.Lurie falsely told the newspaper that she had never made contact with the o cial regarding the contract and deemed any such contact improper. When caught with documentation, her department spun the communication with Siga as a national security matter. Lurie, it should be noted, is a former Clintonite and Howard Dean health care consultant who was most recently in the headlines for pushing anthrax vaccine testing for children. According to the Labor Union Report, there have been market murmurs of a merger between Siga and the anthrax vaccine manufacturer, PharmAthene. Hard to trust Luries public health moral authority with the taint of payfor-play wafting over the Siga deal.As always, venture socialism backed by Big Labor muscle and White House wealth redistribution is hazardous to taxpayers health.

Unfortunately, in the ugly world of reality, it turned out to be a nancial disaster, from which the economy has still not yet recovered. Nor have the poor and minorities. Apparently you cannot just tack on your pet notions to whatever already exists, without repercussions spreading throughout the whole economy. ats what happens in the ugly world of reality, as distinguished from the beautiful world of Liberal Land. e strange and bizarre characters found in Alice in Wonderland have counterparts in the political vision of Liberal Land today. Among the most interesting of these characters are those elites who are convinced that they are so much smarter than the rest of us that they feel both a right and a duty to take all sorts of decisions out of our incompetent hands -for our own good.In San Francisco, which is Liberal Land personi ed, there have been attempts to ban the circumcision of newborn baby boys. Fortunately, that was nipped in the bud. But it shows how widely the self-anointed saviors of Liberal Land feel entitled to take decisions out of the hands of mere ordinary citizens.Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner says, Were facing a very consequential debate about some fundamental choices as a country. People talk that way in Liberal Land. Moreover, such statements pass muster with those who simply take in the words, decide whether they sound nice to them, and then move on. But, if you take words seriously, the more fundamental question is whether individuals are to remain free to make their own choices, as distinguished from having collectivized choices, as a country -which is to say, having choices made by government o cials and imposed on the rest of us. e history of the 20th century is a painful lesson on what happens when collective choices replace individual choices. Even leaving aside the chilling history of totalitarianism in the 20th century, the history of economic central planning shows it to have been such a widely recognized disaster that even communist and socialist governments were abandoning it as the century ended. Making choices as a country cannot be avoided in some cases, such as elections or referenda. But that is very di erent from saying that decisions in general should be made as a country -which boils down to having people like Timothy Geithner taking more and more decisions out of our own hands and imposing their will on the rest of us. at way lies madness exceeding anything done by the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. at way lie unfunded mandates, nanny state interventions in peoples lives, such as banning circumcision -and the ultimate nanny state monstrosity, ObamaCare. e world of reality has its problems, so it is understandable that some people want to escape to a di erent world, where you can talk lofty talk and forget about ugly realities like costs and repercussions. e world of reality is not nearly as lovely as the world of Liberal Land. No wonder so many people want to go there.

Qualify by getting and turning in 249 petitions (DS-DE 104: Candidate Petition Form) signed by registered voters of Levy County (which the candidate must pay to have the voters registration veri ed) or qualify by paying a fee of $2,038.56 (a percentage of the salary paid to a commissioner, which I am against as this leaves the voters out of the picture of qualifying). en during the week of qualifying (June 4th-8th): 5.)Sign and turn Loyalty Oath DS-DE 24 or 25, Candidate Oath Section 99.012, Florida Statutes; 6.) Fill out, sign and turn in DS-DE 84: Statement of Candidate Statement of Candidate (Section 106.023, F.S.); 7.) Fill out, sign and turn in DS-DE 6, Appointment of Campaign Treasurer and Designation of Campaign Depository for Political Committees. When the Governor appoints a person for Commissioner, all this is side stepped. It is more like the person is applying for a job, and not an elected position. Kind of like coming the back door. is needs to be changed as a person running by ballot expends a lot of time and money to get elected by the voters (peoples choice not politics). e appointment process should require the candidates to qualify by the same standards as one running for that position. Otherwise the appointment is purely political. In following these guide lines, it would a ord equality for all. Also the people of Levy County deserve justice by having their votes count by considering them in the appointments. Above all the Tax Payers of Levy County District One should be represented by an appointee residing within their own district. A peer who knows what they desire in government and what is needed to better them as a whole. It would give them a representation for their taxes paid! submitted by Joseph BlitchAppropriate Representation for Taxes Paid ank You ACLU Yes...I want to thank the ACLU for their lawsuit to remove e Ten Commandments Monument from Cross City. Why you might ask! Well...thanks to their anti-Christian persecution, humanistic philosophies, pagan pantheism, cultic distortions and the apathetic indi erence in trying to destroy Gods Word ( which will never happen ) they are now helping spread it across all of Florida thanks to Joe Anderson Jr. anks to you also Joe. Millions of people will now be able to see e Ten Commandments that was limited to only a few thousand sitting in Cross City. No matter what forces are directed against the Word of God, it always emerges brighter, surer than ever. All will fail in their modern attempts to defeat the Holy Scriptures, for God will preserve them from this generation for ever Psalm 12:7 Cheers, Bob Obert, Inglis, FlLetter to Editor

Returning at dusk, her mother and sisters watched the dilapidated vehicle coming back up the sand road from the highway, up through the rough pasture round the burnt oak, then up to the house shin-deep in weeds. When she came in, they didnt know how to look at her or what to ask. She was the youngest, scrawny and redheaded like the others, but she was always a feist, her daddy had said. So she had been the one to go that day, because she had always been the one to go with him. She was the one who learned from him how keep the truck running, to pass the right tool while he mechaniced diesel engines in the logging woods. It was from her daddy that she learned to let cat sh, to sense when the hounds were on a buck or doe. Not many words passed between them when they did these things together. ere was no need. e father and daughter seemed instinctively to protect the quiet space around the other, the space that insulated each from sharp remarks and resentful looks otherwise ample at home. Between those newspaper-chinked walls thered long been the ricochet of comments edged with disappointment or reproach. Apart from the endless, grinding chores that never seemed to catch up with their household needs, she didnt quite understand her mother, nor by contagion her sisters, in their sullen resentments. So she was pensive and quiet, on guard much of the time, except with her daddy. For their two island souls were temperamentally linked in the wash of emotions that often shivered through the home. She thought her fathers heart as she had read of the sea, that the same serene sea that would bring a sailor safely to port, may also rise up ercely to thrash him against the rocks. Now her father had risen ercely, taken a life and would lose his own, and she would be the one to see him to that end. So, she was leaving, she said rmly, when her sisters had patterned their mothers soft wail, I dont know. I just cant. I just cant go. He was a hard man, was all her mother would say after that. Just a hard, hard man. e victims families had led in apart from where she was shown to go. e prosecutors and some of the detectives who testi ed at the trial comforted the family going in through the block. But the investigator for the appellate attorneys the one who had come to the house saying they were down to the last he waited. He waited like a pallbearer, not knowing for whom he waited, though he somehow expected this one to come. He looked grim and slightly vanquished until he saw her walking up, the guard anking her between the distance of the road and the high fence that was crowned with razor wire. Beyond that were the protestors and vindicators, their shrill, quarrelsome voices and contorted faces appearing weightless beneath a leaden winter sky. ey were the only ones then to enter the other room, stale and vacant but for the viewing lines of blue chairs across the cement oor. e guard waited uneasily behind them. ere was only the glass before them, the same glass through which the victims families saw, too, the burly, rough-cut man being brought in. His hair was the same clay-red as hers. is was the same man seen di erently from either side of the partition. For her, there was still the dark cavernous, unexplainable breach between her daddy and the man behind the glass, standing squarely before unsympathetic strangers on the other side. ose saw blood on his hands. ey had no memory as did she of the man who would deliver vegetables from his garden to elderly neighbors down the road. is was the father took up a shovel without a moments hesitation to save her sister from a rattlesnake about to strike. is was her daddy who had patiently taught her to swim and she remembered him then, standing waist deep out in the cold spring run, saying warmly, Come on. Come to me now. She began to shiver as she had then. GraceA Story of Life and DeathWoods Worm X-rays e investigator raised his hand to her shoulder, a shoulder hard as bone beneath the pink sweater she wore over her jeans. She saw, but she did not see the preparations taking place. Her father saw, but he did not look to see, nor did his eyes reveal that he knew he would soon see no more. e warden asked if there was anything he wanted to say. He did not speak at all, but suddenly and inexplicably began to sing. He sang, his voice a deep, wonderfully rich baritone: Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, at saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, Was blind, but now I see. Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear And Grace, my fears relieved. precious did that Grace appear e hour I rst believed. e Sodium Pentothal began to take him. His voice thickened. rough many dangers, toils and snares I have already come; Twas Grace that brought me safe thus far and Grace will lead me home. e girls face fell to her freckled hands. He fathers voice fell: e Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures. He will my shield and portion be As long as life endures. Pavulon was injected then. e microphone was cut. His lips shaped the words slowly, silently to these, his last: ...this esh and heart shall fail And mortal life shall cease, I shall possess within the veil, no less days to sing Gods praise than when weve rst begun It ended that way, she said. at that is what he did! her oldest sister asked incredulously. He sang? A song? her other sister asked, confused. You mean Daddy sang a hymn like that? I never even heard daddy sing before! Well he did, she said, Amazing Grace. Daddy sang that? the oldest yowled. Mama, have you ever heard Daddy sing? e woman watched solemnly out the window, past the old truck, her eyes xed on the burnt oak out in the loaming, the one that burned the night after the sheri s men had taken her husband. ere had been yelling and venomous curses coming from the dark beyond that horrible ame. Mama? e other girl asked again. Do you hear? Did you ever hear Daddy sing like that? She did not look away from the burnt tree, now released of its gnarled, tortured shape in the night. No, she answered softly, Ive never heard your daddy sing. Not once in all his born days did I ever hear that man sing.

WES 4th Graders Expressing ThankgivingWith anksgiving right around the corner, the students in Teri Dixons and Joelene Vinings 4th grade classes at Williston Elementary School were given an opportunity to express those people or things for which they were thankful. Of course, Mr. Tom Turkeys individual tail feathers became the paper on which they composed their brief paragraphs. e students had to give reasons why they were thankful for what or whom they were writing about. Trentin Crooms was one of several students who got to read his writing during the morning announcements before the anksgiving holidays began. e students in Dixons class, pictured here, point to the location of their tail feather on the big display in the 4th grade hallway. Madison Bond said she was thankful for her family, while Jacob Turbeville expressed thanks for his dog Grayson. Seated is Trei Duncan, who said he was grateful for his brother. It was no surprise to hear Dustin Battle say he was thankful for his Papa. Finally, Jennifer Hernandez concurred with Madison; she is thankful for her family. As we enter this season of thanksgiving at all levels, may we think on this quote by William Arthur Ward: Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

Beyond their banal buzzing loomed the lyrical laughter of children splashing about in the reluctant little waves that rolled lazily into the shallows. Id gamely ventured out of the conditioned air myself, fueled by the acquisition of my new ski boat. My wife Angie hadnt wanted to come, at least not until I mentioned my little brother Heath was bringing his new anc Mindy. en she got on board. (No pun intended.) She said itd be a good way to get to know our future sister in-law. Boy was she right. Heath shoved us o and I cranked that boisterous new150 horsepower Mercury outboard. Its roar instinctively caused me to shoot a cavalier wink to no one in particular, and slam down the throttle. We jumped out of the water faster than Shamu after a bucket of fried penguin. Soon we were skimming the surface so fast the only thing getting wet was the prop, and the host of Jet skiers skirting for cover. A crowd watched anxiously from the shore, probably hoping for that sudden gust of wind which wouldve sent us into a phenomenal display of aerial acrobatics. Right o Angies elbow found its way to my calloused ribs. Heath shot me a familiar scowl. en I remember how theyd both asked me not to show myself as a complete jerk right o I didnt know why they wanted me to wait. In my defense, that Mindy girl had a frozen smile placarded across her face the whole time. It looked like she was enjoying herself to me. However, in an e ort to be more amiable, I pulled to a stop, where I commenced barking orders about rigging up the ski rope and inner tube. I declared Heath would be the rst volunteer to ride since he was strutting around like a banny rooster. I couldnt take any more of his muscle exing and courting rituals. e boat wasnt big enough for another ego. I determined to give him a ride to remember. Heath certainly held on longer than I thought possible. I had to crank him up to almost forty miles an hour to nally throw him. Even then I had to yank a sharp left turn and sent him whipping around out in front of us until the shear G-forces nally pried him loose. His ensuing crash reminded me of the one that caused them to spend six million on that bionic fellow. ats when I noticed that feisty Mindy girl glaring at me. What, I asked, We can rebuild him, better, stronger, faster.After collecting what was left of Heath I commenced laying a heavy guilt trip on Angie. Come on sweetie. Dont be scared. Just give it a try. Ill go easy on you. She responded with a look that said atly, Homey dont play that! I was about to get mad when that feisty Mindy girl spoke up, Ill take a turn. I raised my brow, somewhat surprised. Heath furrowed his over the top of his makeshift neck brace. With Heath over my shoulder I resolved to behave and kept it at low speeds. en something took us both by great surprise. Feisty Mindy gave the thumbs up sign. at meant she wanted to go faster! I looked at Heath. He nodded his approval. So I bumped it up. Next thing you know she gives another thumbs up! My eyes went wide. Angie snickered. Heath gave the go ahead. is routine went on until she was riding rougher than any regular ole fellow! Obviously this was becoming a direct challenge to our manhood. en, without actually uttering a self incriminating word, Heath sort of indicated with his eyes that maybe it was okay to take her down a peg or two. At least thats the way I read it. Of course, he denies it to this day, his marriage being at stake and all. With the green light, however, I began to put her into what I like to call the Vortex of Death. Turning tight circles I began to stir the pot. Soon I had churned up the wave to beat all waves, almost of tsunami proportions. Subsequently I slung feisty Mindy right into it at full speed. I reckon the tube itself was propelled seven or eight feet high, and poor Mindy, as she is now known, had a vantage point from well above that. I must admit, she pulled o some pretty phenomenal aerial acrobatics for the crowd on the way down. Wed already circled back before she nally landed with a giant belly op. She just laid there bobbing like an old cork as we hauled her in. She was alive, but she didnt say a word. In fact, it was several years later before she nally said one to me! I reckon poor ole feisty Mindy, bionic Heath, and my homey Angie would all want to share some valuable information with youIf you nd yourself on board with a cocky self seeking, bossy, guilt trip laying, deranged, psycho, nut case at the helm, be looking for a way to get your feet back on solid ground! Certainly dont give him any indication that you agree with him, or be sucked into participating in any of his maniacal little games. Jesus showed us how to deal with satan. (Get out of here, satan, Jesus told him. For the Scriptures say, You must worship the Lord your God and serve only Him. Matthew 4:10 NLT). What? You didnt think I was talking about me did you?But anywayGod has created the only Ark that will carry you safely through the eternal Vortex of Death. His name is JESUS.

CadleAs written in Gospel Appeal 2011 e scriptures have much to teach us about the tongue; most especially, perhaps, we remember these words from James 3:6, "And the tongue is a re, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it de leth the whole body, and setteth on re the course of nature; and it is set on re of hell." Going further James says that no man can tame the tongue (verse 8); and he wraps up the contradictory employments to which men put their tongues, saying, "Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing" (verse 9) and he adds the warning to God's children that "these things ought not so to be" (verse 10). Just think, dear friends, how much trouble Old Baptists would have escaped if they had heeded the wisdom of those few verses! It isn't an obscure passage of scripture at all; we all know and are familiar with the reading of it. What's more, we've all seen practical evidence that the word of God does not speak in vain, saying, "Behold, how great a matter a little re kindleth!" (verse 5). It is a well-known and often mourned fact that illadvised, foolish, hateful and envious words have been the cause of great res that have raged among us leaving little but ruin and bitter memories in their wake. Yet, despite all the wounds that the piercing tongue has dealt among us, despite embers that smolder still amidst the burnings it has kindled, it seems that we're least inclined to sheath the deadliest weapon in all of our carnal arsenal. Indeed, this ought not be so. at above text doesn't nearly exhaust the topic of that "unruly" member. ere is more to be found in other scripture. Proverbs 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue .... e image there is that of a legal matter wherein the testimony, or words, of one man can condemn or free another.

The NFBA is a legal en-But it isnt necessary to con ne the meaning to legal matters in which the mouth of two or three witness is required. Heedless words, in any setting or occasion whatever, spoken for or against another person, have the power to bring hurt and injury or to in uence some good bene t. at makes it doubly unfortunate that the words spoken by men are not always weighed in a fair balance. It is one o ense that men tell lies. It is another that false words are received and repeated as truth when diligent examination would show that there is no evidence to prove them. Do we not know that every person who hears and repeats anything without proof yet has the outward appearance of a faithful witness? at should not be so, but it is because man isnt very discriminating about what he is willing to hear or accept as truth. e disclaimers, I dont know if its so or speaking o the record have been whispered before many hurtful lies, but they hardly, if ever, stop the spread of a matter. Rather, the whispered disclaimer seems to send the matter along on the wings of a mighty shout. Herein, we can see a picture of mans sinfully cunning nature here, we can see James world of iniquity clearly displayed in all its subtlety. Notice that man easily ignores the warning bell of disclaimers in his rush to hear; but he never fails to include them as cover in his rush to repeat what hes heard! us have liars and receivers of lies robbed honest and humble men of that simplest of all praises that men might bestow or withhold from.one another: the honor of a good name. A number of such men, unjustly dishonored, have never regained any more than a nominal standing among the brethren (the killing lie always going before) and the greater bene t they might have been to every good cause has been destroyed. But conversely brethren, according to the text, we are not without some preventive remedy against those who either through carelessness or by wicked design bring reproach upon another. Good and faithful brethren who refuse to hear or act upon unsubstantiated rumors hold forth the power of life for those who are sorely pressed by falsehoods. e rush to judgment that talebearers, gossips, excite among the brethren can be avoided if we bear in mind that the passing of time will not change the truth. By and by truth will rise to the top; the facts will enlighten our eyes and reward our patience with con dence that we have prepared ourselves to exercise good judgment. Who knows but what it may be our happy lot to see a good brothers honor and usefulness to the cause maintained; and the ery course of nature thwarted for a season. ere is something else that wisdom has to teach us about the evils that the unruly tongue can bring upon us. Sometimes brethren do wrong; they are overtaken in a matter that must be corrected; they must repent to set things right. Often however, the faithful entreaty, the long-su ering good words that would have converted the sinner from error, saved a soul from death (James 5 :20), and restored him to his friends, cannot overcome the sinning brothers impression that it is enemies and not friends whose forgiveness he must gain when there are those who spread his matter abroad, maliciously repeating it over and over both near and far. Meddlesome folks (Pro. 20: 19; 24:21) such as that separateth very friends (Pro. 17:9); there is an evil intention in their alwayswagging tongue, and they are worthy of scorn for stirring up strife. A brother who refuses to repent cannot be excused; but it is easy to see how the unchecked clamor that surrounds him would excite the very basest of his natural emotions rather than the humble and submissive willingness that must be drawn from the depths of his heart where the lingering touch of Gods love is yet warm and lively. May we never appear to be on the side of dousing the spark or breaking the reed that Christ would not. e world of iniquity that James speaks of, and the power of death and life that we read of in the proverb, is surely enough to teach us that every man ought to keep watch over his own tongue lest he bring harm to others. Yet there is an even more pointed end to the proverb that should bear heavily upon the strength we set forth in guarding our own lips. We will undoubtedly bring harm upon ourselves if we are not careful to exercise some control over our tongue. e last portion of Proverbs 18:21 warns us that ... they that love it (the tongue and talking) shall eat the fruit thereof. If we love to use our tongue to hurt others that same hurt will come back upon us; if we love to bless others then such will fall out to our good. Be advised; we shall reap what we sow with our tongue. It ought to be no surprise to any of us that the person who goes about spewing a torrent of deadly words does so at the cost, sooner or later, of bringing a dark cloud over his own head. Some folks just never understand why it is that they are under the gray and uncertain shadow of mistrust all the time; or why others wouldnt take their word for good morning. ey are shunned because they are known to meddle; they have dishonored themselves by too often being the source or the willing conduit of hurtful words, and good brethren fear being entangled in their web. With all of that good scriptural admonishment to guard our tongue before us, lets now take up our state of a airs as it is most of the time. Generally, except for sleeping times, silence is an unwanted vacuum that we seek relief from, and conversation is the quickest remedy. Human beings delight in talking. e give and take of it, the back and forth sharing of experiences, opinions and feelings about life as we live it, fuels our interactions as social creatures. In fact, most of us are very social; we talk a lot. TMI is a leading acronym of the age too much information and most would agree that in this modern age we have lost the very idea of modesty. We share too much in every way and that does not speak well of the Lords church. Not only are we too open with personal and private matters, we never seem to question the worthiness of that great quantity of words that we produce every day on a wide array of subjects. Is their any bene t from all that chatter? Probably not, in my opinion; but Im willing to leave the assessment of its social value to the folks who make it their business to know such things. But it is our business to faithfully instruct the household of faith. And that household needs to remember that silence is golden, and perhaps never more so than when it turns a frown upon idle conversation that has strayed too far a eld. Stone-faced silence is neither pleasant nor easily ignored; and it is that very discomforting feel of it that conveys a warning message to those who are given to careless conversation. Knowing surely from the word of God that we need to watch over every word that comes out of our mouth; and knowing that we are overly (incessantly?) talkative; do we not need some guiding principles to perform that monumental task? We do, and what better way to whittle that job down to size than to simply cut down the overall quantity? First, we must limit the subjects that were willing to talk about. Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:9 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. at is easily enough understood, but it requires careful contemplation lest we miss the two-fold nature of it. It isnt enough to be satis ed that what we are about to say is incorrupt, and assume therefore that it is good. We also need to ask if it is edifying to the brethren; frivolous things are not, and if there is no gracious pro t in it then we need to leave it unsaid. Limiting ourselves to acceptable topics isnt all we can do. We can pay heed to the obvious: e less we speak, even on acceptable topics, the fewer words we have to watch over. It wont hurt us to speak less. Saying too much is like water wasted down the drain anyway; it serves no purpose and is most likely the one thing that prevents us from being a better friend and brother. We dont hear much from others if we are always doing the talking. Considering this thought further, dont we turn down the ow when water splashes over the lavatory? We do, and it accomplishes two things. It saves water and avoids a mess. e same is true of how much we talk.

It is already hard enough to bridle the tongue without adding to it the di cult job of cleaningup after loose words. And the idea of loose words brings us to a third principle that we need to keep in mind. We need to know who is listening when were talking. In all likelihood, when were gathered with the brethren a good number of them will hear much that passes our lips even though it is our intention to speak only to one or two. ere are both weak and strong brethren among us; and it is experience that makes all the di erence. e new and tender ones among us cannot bear what others may; they need time to grow. Missing the context can make overheard words very dangerous for the weak and extra-sensitive; and words overheard often dont convey the tone or the original intention of a conversation. e strong may be bold enough to enquire after the things they didnt fully understand, but the weak and backward may very well remain uninformed and go away having drawn an improper conclusion. ere are other scriptures that make plain the troubles that the tongue can bring among the Lords people. ey agree with the few that are used in this article; and the large number of such scriptures further emphasizes that indeed the tongue can be a source of evil among us when we do nothing about it. But this article, intended as but a little reminder to the household of faith, should it have incorporated every one of those scriptural references, and gave a thousand practical strategies besides, will do us no good unless God, by His grace and love, enables us to willingly hear and obey His word. We need to know what the word of the Lord says about the tongue; we need to be informed in wisdoms way of its evils. But we dont need to invent a program to work it out; we need the grace of God working in us for we can do nothing without Him. Even so, let us pray, Set a watch, Oh LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips (Psalm 141:3). Amen.
