350 riders come to Washington Coui
Over 350 motocross riders and
several hundred family members
were on hand over the weekend for
the fourth annual Hard Labor Creek
Harescramble in Washington County.
That was good news to hotel and
campsite owners, as well as restau-
rants and other businesses throughout
It was also good news to the spon-
sors, the Tallahassee Trail Riders
(TTR). With pressure mounting to
stop holding their annual trail ride in
the national forest near Tallahassee,
the Washington County event could
soon replace it as the organization's
major yearly event. Or, the Hard
Labor Creek Plantation south of
Chipley could be the site of a second
"The national forest is beginning
to restrict vehicle use," said TTR
Vice-President John Wheeler. "The
TTR even helped write a grant to
obtain equipment to help restore the
national forest to its original con-
dition after the motocross event,"
Loss of access to public land
means that it is necessary for the
TTR to find private land, and that
could work out for both the TTR
and the landowner. "It can profit the
landowner as well if it is properly
organized," Wheeler said. "There
are more and more motorcycles and
four-wheelers being sold, but less and
less places to hold events. It's hard to
find willing landowners."
The harescramble over the week-
end was nothing but win-win for

Hard Labor Creek owner Ted Everett.
The plantation is usually used to host
hunting events, but Everett says he
got hooked on the idea of the moto-
cross event and its has grown every
year. Everett, who is also executive
director of the Washington County
Chamber of Commerce, and who was
director of the Washington County
Tourist Development Council when
the motocross event came to the
county, saw the event as a way to
bring tourist dollars to Washington
County. So far it's done just that.

campgrounds," Everett said. "They

other items. They eat at local res-

An academy for spending

Move over, Air Force Academy. Make way, Annapolis.
Watch out, West Point.
If some in Congress get their way, there soon might be a Na-
tional Public Service Academy, styled loosely (probably very
loosely) on these older institutions, that will take America's best
and brightest and mold them into the federal uber-bureaucrats
of the future. We shudder at the thought.

would lead to downsizing _
by attrition). And all it will
cost to built the perfect bureaucrat is $205 million annually,
Where will the new academy be? That's undecided. But
we're sure New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Northern
Virginia will be in the running.
Clinton's muddle-headed justification for the school suggests
that even the bill's sponsors are confused about its purpose. "We
are facing the impending retirement of so many of the senior
ranks of our government," Clinton said in touting the idea. "The
people who do everything from help predict the weather, to run
our nuclear power plants, to figure out how the Social Security
system will keep functioning. We're concerned that we're not
going to have the workforce that we need in the next 10 years
to keep this complicated government functioning."
Predict the weather? Run nuclear power plants? Figure out
how the Social Security system will keep functioning? There's
no shortage of meterologigts; most TV stations have at least
one. Running nuclear power plants is done by private-sector
engineers, not federal workers, thank goodness, or we'd all be
eating three-eyed fish. And figuring out how to keep the Social
Security system solvent isn't the job of federal bureaucrats,
but of politicians such as Clinton, who have completely failed
in that regard.
We don't doubt attracting smart and ambitious people to
work for federal agencies is a challenge. Control freaks, pencil
pushers, committee-joiners and buck-passers may find govern-
ment work appealing, but most young people want more from
work. They want to accomplish something, test their limits
and get paid for their initiative and new ideas. Relatively few
federal jobs provide such an. opportunity; most are initiative-
killers that drive good and competent people into the private
sector. We doubt that will be turned around by establishing a
gold-plated vocational school.
If Clinton & Co. really want to attract young Americans to
federal jobs, they have to overhaul the way the government
operates, by clearing away red tape, reducing the influence
of unions, reforming a civil service system that creates and
protects deadwood, and instituting a pay structure that rewards
real skills and real performance. Agencies shouldn't be about
perpetuating themselves, amassing power and making work
for people. They should be small, elite, nimble organizations
on do-or-die missions - sort of like NASA during the Apollo
Part of what makes the military academies successful is the
sense of mission they instill. Whether that can be replicated
when you're sending graduates out to serve in the bloated,
unmanageable, lethargic and rudderless blobs that most federal
agencies have become, is doubtful.
Existing colleges and universities are turning out plenty of
the kinds of people a Public Service Academy would. Build a
better federal government, and they will come.
For everything there is a
season and a time to every
purposeunder heaven - even
a time to declare one's presi-
dential candidacy. And, for
Fred Thompson, the time is
Momentum has been build-
ing for Thompson in the past
six weeks. If he announces his
presidency run in the next few
weeks, he will coast easily
into a berth in the Republican
finals against Rudy Giuliani.
But if he delays - as he
shows signs of wanting to do
- he will miss the boat.
For many candidates, delay
means that they don't have to
stand out and be targets until
later in the game. But for
Thompson, delay could be fa-
tal. The major negative against
the former Tennessee senator
is that he lacks the heart or the
fire in the belly to compete
and win. With Hillary Clin-
ton looming as the expected
Democratic nominee, victory
is of surpassing importance
to the Republican primary
electorate. Republicans will
not nominate someone who
they think is ambivalent about
During his Senate tenure,
Thompson's work habits were

he was not known as one ,of

in office raised suspicions that

he was distracted by the allure

private life. Too long a delay
in announcing his candidacy
could fuel such speculation
and create a negative that need
not exist for the actor turned
politician turned actor.
On paper, Fred Thompson
looks like a nominee from,
well, central casting. Invoking
the legacy of Ronald Reagan,
his communications skills
hearken back to the era when
the GOP right had a presi-
dent so fluid, silken voiced
and articulate that it could
advance its agenda without
compromise and still prevail.

The recent Supreme Court
decision upholding Congres-
sional legislation banning
partial birth abortion and the
tragic shooting at Virginia
Tech will both ignite demands
on the left for an aggressive
drive to protect Roe v. Wade,
and to legislate tougher gun
controls. This Democratic
offensive puts Rudy Giuliani
in the middle and could erode
support for his candidacy. On
the other hand, it could fire
the ranks of true believers and
lead them to rally around a
Fred Thompson candidacy.
If doubts develop about
Thompson's willingness to
run, or his aggressiveness
once he is in the race, Newt
Gingrich - waiting in the
wings - could get into the
race and compete with Fred
for the designation as Mr.
Right. Thompson would have
to climb over the former
House Speaker to get the right
to face off with Rudy Giuliani
in the finals. Rudy, for his
part, has to decisively defeat
John McCain to become the
Republican moderate, who
would then face the winner
of the Gingrich/Thompson
If Fred Thompson jumps
into the race quickly, with both
feet, and hits the ground run-
ning, he can pre-empt Newt.'s
potential candidacy and head
it off - much like Barack
Obama's swift entry into the
race eclipsed any real chance
that Al Gore had to challenge
Hillary. It is well worth getting
into the race early in order to
win a bid in the semi-finals
and a free pass to the GOQP
finals against Rudy.
The financial demands
for competition on the super,
super Tuesday - Febru-
ary 5, 2008 - are daunting.
Giuliani, with $12 million on
hand, has a big head start. If
Thompson waits too much
longer, Rudy's financial edge
could become decisive. With
virtually the entire nation vot-
ing on the same day, the cost
of advertising and even of
personal campaigning, is huge
and Thompson will need ev-
ery day he can make available
to raise money - starting too
late may mean never having a
chance to win.

human rights any more than
I. When we view the whole
picture of these " illegals," a
large number of them continue
to break the law once they
relocate in this country, and
have a pattern of behavior that
speaks for itself.
In my opinion any illegal
immigrant convicted of a
crime or just get caught after
sneaking into this country, get
incarcerated for those infrac-
tions, should be deported im-
mediately upon release from
prison or being caught.
Can you tell me what do the
American people really want
us to do? Just maybe greet
them at the county jails and
give them limousine service
to Section 8 Housing? Set
them up with free medical
insurance, a no-show job,
and food stamps? Or free col-
lege tuition, at the expense of
American "legal" citizens.
Concern and compassion
are always in order, America
must recognize the benefit
of integrating immigrants
of all races into our society.
But it is a "terrible" mistake
- Keyword "terrible" mistake
- to allow those sentiments to
blind us to the dangers these
"illegal" people pose to our
Thank you, Rep. Don
Brown, for calling for an
investigation on the abuse of
our tax dollars. I never thought
that the persons we elect in
this country would ever begin
to understand the difference
between political pandering
and political obligation. It
is my hope this will happen
before there is violence and
the terrorists get rid of all of
us "legal" citizen.

ing ceremonies for Relay for Life.
Cancer survivor and Washington County Sheriff Bobby
Haddock visits with representatives at the First Baptist
Church campsite during the Relay for Life.
Crowns for a Cure queens are flanked by survivors at Relay
for Life event held at the Philip Rountree stadium.
County Relay for Life exceeds goal for 2007
Purple is a color associated
with nobility and spirituality.
How apropos, then, that can-
cer survivors at Washington
County's Relay for Life Fri-
day were clad in purple t-shirts
with SURVIVOR written
boldly across the back.
The event was one of 4,800
similar relays nationwide to
generate funds for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society. The local
effort raised at least $50,000,
according to event chairperson
Missie Finch, who said funds
are still being totaled.
More than a benefit, Relay
for Life is a celebration of
lives lost to cancer as well as
to the spirit of people, young
and old, who have survived
the disease. The color purple
was selected by the ACS in
honor of survivors' physical
and emotional battles with a
disease that strikes almost 1.5
;1llion people annually.
I- 'Cancer survivors made the
traditional Survivor's Lap
during opening ceremonies,
some walking with deter-
mined spirit, some strolling
with loved ones and some
riding in motorized carts
and wagons. They had more
than their health to celebrate:
Washington County's 23 Re-
lay for Life teams had already

"As of Wednesday, Wash-
ington County made its goal.
Since then, and through to-
night and tomorrow," said Jay
Stewart, Relay for Life team
development volunteer, to the
gathered crowd, "everything
else is gravy."
The 2007 theme was
Game Shows, and teams from
throughout the county signed
on booth game shows such
as Jeopardy, Wheel of Can-
cer, Fear Factor, Hollywood
Squares, Card Sharks, Feud
for a Cure, Who Wants to
Win $50, Wheel of Fortune
Opening ceremonies also
included the presentation of
flags by the Chipley High
School ROTC Color Guard,
the national anthem sung by
Amy West and Laura Whid-
don, the invocation by Mount
Ararat Missionary Baptist
Church Associate Pastor
Thomas Smith and recogni-
tion of winners of the Crowns
for a Cure benefit pageant.
Crowns for a Cure was or-
ganized by Angela Harr, wife
of survivor Steve Harr, which
raised more than $1,000 for
the ACS. She introduced the
following young ladies:
Baby Miss Relay for Life
and Supreme Queen Josie

Chipola College scored twice when it hired
Belinda Hendrix as Lady Indians softball

softball, she was the impetus behind Vernon

Land said, "I used to play for her when she
taught here." Hendrix left Vernon to coach
Chipola's softball team in May 2004.

schools wanted her but she wanted to stay close
to home." Chipola won out over Enterprise
Community College and Gulf Coast Commu-
nity College, which offered her a scholarship
in 10th grade. Chipola College also offered
her the best deal. "She gets everything but
meals," she said.

According to the aged Min-
ute Records, these books have
officially been in the care and
control of Bethel Primitive
Baptist Church since Nov. 14,
1926. That was the date High
Hill Church met with a com-
mittee from Bethel Church in
what appears intended to be
their last meeting. There had
been a lapse of four years with
no record of any meeting of
Elder D.J. Parker was mod-
erator for this final meeting
with J.T. Wells voted as clerk.
It is interesting to note that al-
though it was the church's last
business.session, the complete
formality of a "conference"
was entered into.
Under the heading of "Ac-
knowledgements," a church
brother, name not revealed
here, "made acknowledge-
ments and for give him."
Under the item of "Gospel
Dealings" the minute reflects
"by motion preferred a charge
against brother and wife, sister
(unnamed here) for deserting
the church and joining another
denomination." A second mo-
tion "tested fellowship" which
resulted in the exclusion of the
brother and sister.
. My grandfather, J.T. Wells,
was a member and deacon
at Bethel Primitive Baptist
Church. He served as Clerk of
that church for many years in
his early life. J.T. Wells died
Aug. 26, 1955.
I vividly recall my grandfa-
ther's life. It is. interesting to
observe his terminology and
way of writing as he recorded
this historic church minute.
He wrote that the committee
from Bethel came to High Hill
meeting at "Green Head, Fla
- on account of the house hav-
ing gone down," obviously
referring to the deteriorat-
ing condition of the meeting
house where the High Hill
Church had been meeting.
The word "account" was
one of my grandfather's most
used expressions. His descrip-
tion of a person who he felt to
be useless or shiftless was: "he
is no account!" My brother,
Max, clearly recalls Grandpa
arriving at the scene of the
accidental house fire on Dec.
31, 1948, when the old home
he built in the early 1900s
had just burned to the ground.
Apparently sad and broken
hearted at what he was seeing,
his comment was "just what is
to account for this?"
I expect to keep these his-
toric documents in my home
for awhile for further review.
They are classic' and filled
with heritage of an era of
bygone days. I will be glad
to have anyone interested in
reading the material to call
me at home.

Thanks to store displays,
print ads and television com-
mercials, holidays like Christ-
mas and Independence Day
are practically impossible to
Some holidays, though, are
harder to remember.
Take Earth Day, April 22.
The international holiday
recognized by 175 countries
worldwide is rarely promoted
by U.S. retailers, who likely
recognize the hypocrisy of
promoting consumption on a
day devoted to encouraging
the responsible stewardship of
the planet's resources.
Students at Kate M. Smith
Elementary School are deter-
mined to fill the promotional
gap, however. Under the guid-
ance of 'Mad Maude the Sci-
ence Broad', a.k.a. Gina Page,
students in grades K through
four created their own com-
mercials for Earth Day.
With the assistance of Chi-
pley's Piggly Wiggly grocery
store,. students drew Earth
Day pictures and slogans on
paper bags. Page then returned
them to the store for staff to
use when bagging customers'
"I tell the student, 'This bag
is your commercial to show
other people how important
Earth Day is'," Page said.
"They do all the art work
themselves. With the younger
classes, I write sample slogans
on the board, but the older
kids come up with what to say
all by themselves."
Kim Abbott, assistant man-
ager at Piggly Wiggly, said,
"This is our second year work-
ing with the school on this.
The parents and especially
the grandparents get really
excited about it."
Page said she received
close to 1,000 bags from Pig-
gly Wiggly for the project.
"Mr. Lyle" Young, owner of
the Piggly Wiggly, is always
very generous to give us bags
for this project and for things
like the kindergarteners' In-
dian vests at Thanksgiving."
She is the school's part-
time environmental educator,
as well as its part-time char-
y Wiggly team up for Earth Day
Chipley's Alfred Smith receives his groceries in an Earth
Day paper bag from Piggly Wiggly bag boy William Bat-
acter educator. She added, "I
visit every class for environ-
mental enrichment at least
once every two weeks."
She added, "The kids love
drawing on the bags and
knowing their parents might
get their bags. The customers
love looking at them. Even the
employees down at the Piggly
Wiggly say they enjoy looking
at them. It's turned out to be
a great project to educate the
public about Earth Day."

The first is SIDNE, which stands

an electronic walking course to

the invitation of principal Timothy
"We'd heard some talk about
parties with alcohol involved, so we
called the sheriff and asked if he had
a program," Clemmons said. "We
want to do all we can to help stu-
dents make good decisions, with the
prom coming up this weekend."
Thanks to a grant from the Florida
Dept. of Transportation, the sheriff's
answer was a resounding yes.
"We received a DOT grant for
$19,000 that required the purchase
of SIDNE," Lee said. "It's an eye-

As senior Joe Lewis wobbled
through the course, almost falling
down, he asked, "Are you laughing
at me, sheriff?" He was:
But the sheriff wasn't laughing
when he explained the state's DUI
laws to juniors later that morning.
In fact, he connected on a personal
level with these students since he
also attended'Bethlehem School.
"I know (about alcohol abuse)
from past experience and from being
your age... I didn't know better,"
"But if we catch you, you can't
say you didn't know. I stood in front

ties for DUI offenses, providing

Senior Pastor Mike Orr, left, and Minister of Children/Youth Dave Hingson and some of the building material being
used in the project.
If you build it, they will come
ministry leads to
Pastors at Chipley's First
Baptist Church had already
seen the youth ministry grow
from about 35 to 60 teens
when they moved the pro-
gram to larger, temporary
quarters alternating between
Washington County Agricul-
ture Center and the old Chi-
pley High School gym.
Now that FBC's new youth
building is almost complete,
church leaders expect even
more teenagers to participate
in programs geared toward
reaching students in grades
six through 12 with the mes-
sage of Jesus Christ.
Children and Youth Pas-
tor Dave Hingson admitted
skepticism when the build-
ing committee presented
plans for a youth building to
the congregation, since the
church has purchased land to
build a larger church campus.
Worship service attendance
has grown almost -21 percent
in the past four years, and a
new complex is needed to
meet this demand.
"The night we discussed
this, with our already having
purchased land and planning
to move, the only comment
was when a lady in the back
raised her hand and asked
Children and Youth Pastor Dave Hingson under the car-
port of the new youth building for First Baptist.
if we thought the building
would be big enough," Hing-
son said. "I about died."
Because of the congrega-
tion's enthusiasm, plans for
the building were expanded
from 5,000 to 6,000 square
feet. The building's struc-
ture was also upgraded from
wood to red iron.
Senior Pastor Mike Orr
said, "We were trying to be
conservative, but it's a real
testament to the character of
the church. I think our church
has always had a real heart
The right side of the build-
ing will have a stage with 150
chairs for worship service
seating, storage rooms and
an open ceiling for hanging
lights and sound equipment.
The left side of the build-
ing will have space for five
Sunday school classes, rest
rooms, a caf6-style dining
area, complete with black-
and a full kitchen. Partitions
that create the classrooms are
"On Wednesday nights,
we'll have pool tables, foos-
ball, ping pong, air hockey
and electronic basketball
games set up in that space,"
Hingson said. Church staff
are considering opening the'
youth building on other eve-
nings, as well.
"We want to reach our
children, our youth, as early
as possible because they are
faced with pressures, tempta-
tion... The family unit is un-
der attack in our nation," Orr
The new building will be
for youth only, no weddings:
no receptions, no meetings.
"We want it available at all
times for our'youth. The kids
deserve a building of their
own," he said.
The youth building is one in
a series of changes the church
has made in order to increase
its service to young people.
About a year ago, local teach-
er Anne Chenault, whom Orr
said, "has an incredible love
for children" was brought on-
board as a part-time director
of children's ministries, un-
der the supervision of Hing-
son. In the fall of 2006, FBC
began the AWANA Christian
children's club program on
"Before AWANA started,
we had maybe 30-40 chil-
dren on Wednesday nights,"
Orr said. "The first night, we
had about 80 come, and a few
weeks ago we had 114 chil-
The project has received
the support of local business-
es. Orr praised Mark Odom
with Better Built Buildings
for "putting a lot of extra time
in for us. He did the painting
himself." Orr also commend-
ed Guettler & Guettler Inc.
for bartering with C.W. Rob-
erts Contractors to lay milled
asphalt for the youth building
George Roberts, vice pres-
ident of C.W. Roberts Con-
tractors said, "Dan and Al
(Guettler) striped asphalt at
our church, so we laid asphalt
at their church. The Lord has
blessed us, so we do what we
The hands of Christ
During World War II, a
church building in Stras-
bourg was destroyed. After
the bombing, the members
surveyed the area to see what
damage was done. They were
pleased that a statue of Christ
with outstretched hands was
still standing. It had been
sculpted centuries before by a
Taking a closer look, the
people discovered both hands
of Christ had been sheered
off by a falling beam. Later, a
sculptor in the town offered to
replace the broken hands as a
gift to the church. The church
leaders met to consider the of-
fer and decided not to accept
it. They felt the statue without
hands would be a great il-
lustration that God's work is
done through his people.
Truly, in the church, we are
the "hands of Christ". If Christ
is to minister to the poor, it
must be through our hands.
If he is to take care of the
sick, it must be through our
hands. If he is to reach out to
those who are lonely, it must
be through our hands.
"Together you are the body
of Christ, and each one of you
is a part of that body." (1 Cor-
inthians 12:27, NCV).
See something around
you that Christ needs to take
care of today? He has no
hands........but your hands!
Throughout the scriptures
we are commanded to carry
out the will of the Father. We
have been given the responsi-
bility to teach and to do good
for others. Take time in your
day to day life to do good for
someone else. By doing these
things w'e will be fulfilling
"And let us pot be weary
in well doing: for in due sea-
son we shall reap, if we faint
not. As we have therefore op-
portunity, let us do good unto
all men, especially unto them
who are of the household of
faith." (Gal. 6:9-10 KJV)
We all have a part in the
body of Christ. Maybe were
not the preacher or an elder or
even a public teacher of God's
word, but there is something
we all can do in God's king-
dom. It may be a call to the
sick or a meal to someone in
need. It may simply be spend-
ing time with someone who is
struggling with their faith, but
there is something we all can
do. Let us strive to do our part
in the building up of the body
"And He gave some as
apostles, and some as proph-
ets, and some as evangelists,
and some as pastors and
teachers, for the equipping
of the saints for the work of
service, to the building up of
the body of Christ; until we all
attain to the unity of the faith,
and of the knowledge of the
Son of God, to a mature man,
to the measure of the stature
which belongs to the fullness
As a result, we are no lon-
ger to be children, tossed here
and there by waves and car-
ried about by every wind of
doctrine, by the trickery of'
men, by craftiness in deceitful
scheming; but speaking the
truth in love, we are to grow
up in all aspects into Him who
is the head, even Christ, from
whom the whole body, being
fitted and held together by
what every joint supplies, ac-
cording to the proper working
of each individual part, causes
the growth of the body for the
building up of itself in love."
(Eph 4:11-16 NAU)

This past Christmas, Judy
gave me a Garman, that's one
of those satellite navigation
devices. She thought it might
help us get where we intend
to go, seeing as so often when
traveling we get lost and have
to stop and ask directions.
When we travel I always like
to have a map, but you can't
drive and look at a map at the
same time. S
o most the time, I'm the
pilot (driver) and she's the
navigator. She's gotten pretty
good after thirty-one years of
training (lol). I hope everyone
knows what "lol" means, it's
one of those internet terms,
and means "laugh out loud".
But she is also a person .that
likes gadgets and technology,
so she bought the Garman for
me, again "lol".
To get to the point,I've used
it a few times now and we've
used it a few times together,
but I have not really learned
to trust it, in that a few times
it led me to the wrong place.
Judy tells me that equipment
like this is only as good as the
operator (ouch). But this past
Thursday, Friday and Satur-
day we were traveling to Fort
Gaines, Georgia to go camp-
ing with friends.
We had a. great time and
a great fish fry on the lake,
along with two wonderful
breakfasts. But the interesting
part of the trip was getting
there, and we vowed not to
tell, and we didn't while we
were camping, but now I will
First of all, we thought we
knew how to get where we
were going. We had been by
the camp ground, Cotton Hill,
at least once, if not twice.
Plus we had written instruc-
tions that Barbara e-mailed
me, plus she had told me how
to get there.
But! We had decided to
turn the Garman on, and see
what it said. Judy was oper-
ating it this time. And as we
were traveling north of Do-
than on Highway 431, long
before we got to where we
were to turn right, it told us
to turn left, 6ff of a four lane
divided highway onto a small
two lane road.
I knew something .was
wrong, and refused to make
the turn. Oh, by the way, we
are driving a 36-foot long,
wide body diesel motor home.
But it just kept on telling us
we needed to turn left, but I
refused. Further on down the
road, Judy said she had got-
ten it corrected, basically,
saying, the operator problem
was fixed (wink). But then it
happened again, the Garman
wanted us to turn right about
ten miles earlier than our in-
structions said we should. So
again I refused to turn, but
again it kept on saying turn at
every right turn, so I decided
It took us on some back
roads through the country and
through many, many turns.
It even lead us through the
middle of a pasture, yes it
was paved, but barely wide
enough for the wheels of the
motor home. Eventually it
did lead us back to the route,
where we wanted to be. We
admit it was a scenic trip,
but n6t the road I would have
chosen to drive a motor home
When we did get to Fort
Gaines it wanted me to make
a left turn on the first road that
sort of makes a town square. I
thought I remembered Barba-
ra saying it would do that, but
that we should take the next
furn, which I did.
Then again the Garman
tried to get me back on the
right path, but this time we
went on another very narrow,
hilly, road with trees hanging
over the road so low that it
looked as though it was a tun-
nel for small cars.
But there was no other way
to go, so we plugged through
very carefully and guess
what? When we got to the
other side, there was our road
we needed and would have
been on if I had only listened
to the Garman.
You probably already
know where I'm going with
this. Maybe you've been there
before yourself. We'have the
best roadmap of all for life
in the Bible and the leading
of the Holy Spirit. But why
do we so often question Him,
Who made us or ignore Him,
when He not only knows us
best, but He knows what is
best for us.
He is also like the Garman,
but in a better way, even if we
have chosen to take the wrong
turn in life, and have gotten in
a situation that seems impos-
sible to get out of. If we will
be obedient, it may get more
difficult before it gets better,
and it may hurt our pride and
many other things, but He will
lead us to the place designed
for us, even before we where
And there we will find His
joy and peace and a place
where we can rest in Him, our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Acts 2:28 says, "You have
made known to me the ways
of life; You will make me
full of joy in Your presence"

SBe Happy With Your Life
If I could impart one bit of advice to anyone about life, it is this: be
'happy with where you are and with what you are doing at the present
time. Life is so fleeting, and it does not make us; we make it! Sometimes
it: takes many years to come to the total realization of what is truly
.,important in one's life, and to be genuinely happy. However, we should
S'alllive each. day knowing that this is the best time of our existence; not
"yesterday nor tomorrow, but right now. And, I don't mean to say that'
.:we should not look forward to tomorrow, or that we did not learn from
yesterday, but we should get up each day and
realize that this is the day that the Lord has
made. Today is our day, and it is up to each
of us to make the best of it! And although we
should not mind help from those around us,
to make our lives more pleasant and content,
we should not depend solely on others to
make us happy in lieu of our own efforts, and
perhaps more iinportantly, our own outlook.
Life is not always easy, but perhaps it should
not always be easy. If we have a good day,
we should thank God, and realize that more
often, it is we who help to make it that way,
and if it is a bad day, we are to blame for that as well.
The Lord has done great things for us,and we are filled with joy.

- The 2007 Washington
County Youth Fair Banquet
was held Tuesday, April 3, to
honor top division winners
and top livestock exhibitors
from the fair.
4-H member Caitlyn
Prichard welcomed everyone
to the banquet and thanked
all of the exhibitors, fair
sponsors and division chairs
and livestock buyers for their
support of the youth in Wash-
Salem Acuff led the au-
dience in reciting the 4-H
Pledge. The 4-H Pledge is
significant to the, youth fair
exhibitors in that it encour-
ages them to pledge their
head to clearer thinking, their
heart to greater loyalty, their
health to better living, and
their hands to larger service,
for not only the 4H Club, but
also their community, their
country and their world.
Malinda Locke provided
the blessing of the food and
thanked the Lord for all of the
talented youth in Washington
County and the support of the
community. Attendees were
treated to a buffet dinner of
hamburgers, cooked and pro-
vided by the Washington/Hol-
mes Cattleman's Association,
and various sides brought by
the winners' families.
