Sheriff Bobby Haddock receives
an award..

Haddock honored
by Family and

Outreach for
'keeping promises'
Sheriff Bobby Haddock is a
promise keeper. That's according to
Odis Doyle and others in Family and
Community Outreach, a non-profit
organization that presented Had-

dock an award
Saturday at the
group's annual
Memorial Day
weekend family
outing at Pine
Log State Rec-.
reation Area

."You kept your
promise to make our
neighborhoods safe
Odis Doyle

(more coverage page IB).
, Said Doyle, "When you were
running for sheriff, you made us
a promise. You kept your promise
to make our neighborhoods safe
Haddock remembered the con-
versation and his promise well. He
recounted a visit to Ebro, when he
was invited to sit on a porch in the
Happy Hill community to watch the
drug traffic. He said, "You almost
needed to four-lane the dirt roads
down-there because of the drug traf-
fic in and out of there."
Haddock said cleaning up the
area notorious for crack cocaine
sales was relatively easy. "All I did
was one, set priorities and shared
them with the community; two, gave
the deputies the equipment they
needed; and three, teamed up with
other agencies like the DEA, FDLE
and the Chipley Police Department,"
Haddock' said, adding, "You must
have a heart for the people. When
you see a child playing and there
is drug activity next door, that's
Haddock knows his work just
isn't and will never, be done. He
said, "Have we cleaned it all up, no.
But we've started. They know if they
sell drugs in Washington County,
they'd better get their toothbrush
Ebro's Annie Griffin was there to
celebrate the Sheriff's success. She
said, "Traffic is a lot less." Com-
menting that Ebro is a small com-
munity of families that have known
each other for generations, she said,
"Now, when people are riding by,
you know who they are."

The ordinance presented by con-
sultant Christie Carrie only affects
new construction. It will not affect
existing dwellings and other build-

size of their home, there is no fee. If
a homeowner losses a home in a fire
or other natural disaster, there is no
fee to replace the home. There is no

One area of concern voiced by
commissioners was that fees are
charged per unit rather than on the

Pate sentenced to 15 years in prison
A Bay County man was recently sentenced to 15 years in
prison on sexual abuse charges..He was also adjudicated as a
sex offender. Circuit Judge Allen Register sentenced Harold
Pate, 38, of Panama City, to 15 years in state prison. The sen-
tence includes 23 days for time already served and also includes
$1,310 in fines and costs. Pate is a former correction officer at
Washington Corrections Institute.
According to reports on file in Holmes County Circuit Court,
on May 28,2006, Holmes County Sheriff's Department received
a call from a female juvenile reporting a sexual assault. The
16-year-old girl in question told deputies that she was riding
four-wheelers with Pate in the Westville area and was alone
with him when the assault took place. The girl also said she
was given several beers. An examination at Doctor's memo-
rial Hospital was done, and results were consistent with sexual
assault, according to the report.
Pate was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious sexual
battery on a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor
(providing beer). He was released on $40,000 bond.
Pate was convicted on April 26 of sexual battery, but was
found not guilty of the second charge. The jury was out from
4:35 p.m. to 6:20 p.m., according to court records. Pate was
held without bond until sentenced.
Prior to the sentencing Register received 52 requests for
leniency for Pate from friends, family and pastors. A petition
for leniency was also submitted.

He fought in World War
II, after all - the "big one" as
he called it. He described the
terror he felt wading onto the
beaches of Sicily as gunners
tried to mow him down.
While driving a munitions
truck along the sand one day, a
German fighter pilot targeted
him. He jumped -behind his
.50-caliber machine gun and
began firing at the German.
He hit the plane -- he saw
its window shatter -- but the
German managed to release
his payload.
The bomb was headed right
at him. When it detonated,

On the way to another, a

At one point during the
war, he was put in charge
of a prison camp. Escape

the throats of their captors in

offering them cigarettes. They

a much better place than he'd

It saddens me that so many

Argentine did last year. But
it fills me with hope to know
that his spirit is alive and well

women who are in harm's way

Though our country is
divided over our current con-

confusion about the men and

made the ultimate sacrifice for
their country.
We must honor them this

of them make it home safely,
so that they may continue in
their spirit of service. Just as

It's amnesty no matter how you look at it

Heather Mac Donald, a
journalist and fellow at the
Manhattan Institute, can count
immigration policy among her
many areas of expertise. A
contributing editor to the think
tank's quarterly magazine City
Journal and frequent contribu-
tor to important places like
The Wall Street Journal and
The New York Times, she also
focuses on things like home-
land security, policing and "ra-
cial" profilinig, homelessness,
education policy and business
improvement districts.
Q: What's good about the
Senate immigration bill?
A: I think the idea of mov-
ing our immigration system to
reward people who bring skills
that this country needs and
who will improve its economy
and its level of education is a
very positive step. I have read
that the mechanisms of mov-
ing in that direction are rather
arcane and not at all reliable
-- and that it will take perhaps
eight years before in fact the
system is changed at all from
its current family-based ratio-
nale -- but I think that is a very
useful idea. I think trying to
move toward a greater ability
to check worker eligibility is
also a good idea.
Q: Is there a worst part of
this bill?
A: The worst part is the
overnight amnesty for the 12
million illegals who are here.
They merely need to apply
and show that they've been in
the country before Jan. 1 and
provide some effort at proving
they are currently working
and the government has 24
hours to decide whether they
are not eligible by virtue of a
criminal background check. I
think that is one of the most
automatic amnesties that has
been proposed in the whole
series of so-called reform bills.
I think to send the message to
the world that, as usual, we
are not serious about our im-
migration laws, and that they
don't mean anything -- that if
you can get into the country
you can expect an amnesty

ol. ,7


Bill Steigerwald

-- will make the idea that we
have meaningful borders com-
pletely a joke.
Q: What is a sound-bite
synopsis of your position on
A: I think immigration
should be to benefit America.
It's not a favor that we owe
the rest of the world and we
should craft immigration poli-
cies in ways that will improve
our national competitiveness.
That means bringing in people
who have skills that will help
the economy.
I'm also concerned with
Hispanic immigrants. In the
second and third generation, a
significant portion of the chil-
dren of recent Hispanic im-
migrants -- who are virtually
all illegal but their children
are legal -- are getting sucked
up into underclass culture.
You have the highest dropout
rate in the country among
Hispanics, the highest teen-
pregnancy rate in the country
among Hispanics and an out-
of-wedlock birth rate that is 50
percent .These are all markers
of future social pathology, so
I think we are creating fam-
ily breakdown and all of the
problems that surely follow in
the train of that.
Q: If you had to craft a
smart, sensible immigration
bill, what would it look like?
A: I think the point system

is a good one. Currently, prior-
ity is given to legal immigrants
who are family members of
people who are already here,
so they can bring in their ex-
tended families (chain migra-
tion). This bill would shift the
emphasis -- after it takes eight
years to churn through all the
waiting list of the family chain
migration -- to give points to
people who have higher levels
of education than the usual
immigrants or have skills that
are in demand here. This is
a system that other countries
have used.
Q: What else should.a good
immigration policy have?
A: It should have both the
means and the will to enforce
the laws that are on the books.
Currently, it is illegal to hire an
illegal alien. But the chance
of any given employer or
any given illegal alien actu-
ally being penalized for that
law-breaking is close to zero -
- even though the Bush admin-
istration has recently increased
its enforcement to a certain
extent. So I think we need a
mechanism for ensuring that
employers really are following
the law. That will reduce the
"jobs magnet" that does bring
a lot of illegal aliens here.
Q: What about the "welfare
magnet"? Does it bring as
many people here as we think
it does?
A: You definitely see "bor-
der babies." You see women
crossing the border to de-
liver children here, both to get
the medical services for free
and also to confer automatic
American citizenship on their
children. The reason why a lot
of people want to bring their
parents here is not just family
ties but also, the availability
of Medicaid for the parents.
But even if people are com-
ing for jobs, when you have
a very low-skilled population
whose children -- if they are
born here -- are automatically
eligible for welfare, you have
high, high welfare use among
the low-skilled immigrant
population. It's because their

kids are getting everything
-- they're getting traditional
welfare, food stamps; the
parents qualify for Medicaid,
which has gone way up among
immigrants over the last de-
cade. So whether or not they
are coming for the welfare,
they are certainly receiving it
at very large rates.
Q: How many of the 12
million illegals are actually a
problem -- whether because
they are a drain on taxpayers
because they are consuming
welfare services or because
they are criminals?
A: Well, The Wall Street
Journal reported that DHS
(Department of Homeland
Security) estimates that pos-
sibly up to 20 percent of il-
legals wouldn't qualify- for
amnesty because of crimi-
nal backgrounds. That is a
huge, huge, huge number.
I'm frankly surprised it's that
high because the real crime
problem happens between
second and third generations.
With Mexicans it goes up
eight times. Gang involve-
ment is highest in the second
generation. But welfare use is
just very large -- 45 percent
of households in 2005 headed
by immigrants without a high
school degree used at least one
major welfare program. That
includes all immigrants, but
these days the immigrant flow
is overwhelmingly Hispanic
and overwhelmingly illegal
and low-skilled. So there is a
very high correlation between
low-skilled immigrants and
welfare use. In the future, if
you have Hispanics having
kids out of wedlock, that's a
recipe for poverty that leads
to more welfare use. So they
qualify for Medicaid -- all
illegals qualify for Medicaid
under most states. So that's
huge. Medicaid now is break-
ing state budgets.

Holmes County Quarterback Club announces plans for 2007

Managing Editor
The Holmes County Quar-
terback Club has a number
of plans for the 2007 football
season. Steve Mayo and Ed-
win Carroll were on hand re-
cently at the Bonifay Kiwanis
club to describe those plans.
Mayo said that the club
has worked closely with the
coaching staff and administra-
tion at Holmes County High
School to bring a number of
new programs online. The
goal is to help bring Blue
Devil football back to what
it once was, according to
"We have a great football
tradition," Carroll said, "but
over the last decade we have
not done as well. We need to
do better than that."
Carroll said one thing that
club members hope to do is to
draw attention from colleges
to HCHS players. That doesn't
necessarily mean just Division
I colleges.
"We need to let schools
know we have kids who can
play," he said. "A lot of Divi-
sion II or Division III schools
get players from areas just
like ours." "
The club will also spon-
sor events to help the team
prepare for the season. For
example, players and coaches
will attend a football camp

in Orlando, paid for by the
Quarterback Club.
Helping the team will cost
money, so fund-raising is
underway. "We can't do any-
thing without the support of
the community," Carroll said.
"We promise you we will do
the best for our kids, and every
dime collected will go toward
the boys."
Mayo said the club plans to
be a service organization for
its members. "It will be just
like the Kiwanis - member-
ship means something," he
said. Toward that goal, club
membership will include the
*Keeping preferred park-
*Membership includes free
admission and use of the pass
gate at home games.
*Reserved mid-field seat-
ing and in-stand concession
*Two pre-game tailgate
parties at the home opener and
Homecoming. "This includes
the band, food and a great time
of community," Mayo said.
*A weekly film review and
question-and-answer session
with the coaches Monday
*A bi-monthly newsletter.
A website is in development.
*A year-end banquet.
*A large, well-lighted
membership board will be

*You will'never be asked
to work concessions," Mayo
Cost remains at $100 a
year, with a family pass to in-
clude spouse for an additional
$50. Business supporters get
two cards and a large banner
at the stadium for $300.
The first fund-raiser was a
classic car show on May 19.
Next up is a golf tournament
in June. Another special event
is the "Blue and Old" Game
on August 3. "Anybody who
ever played at Holmes County
is invited to play flag football
against the team," Mayo said.
The "old band" and "old
cheerleaders" are also invited.
Gate and concessions will go
to the club.

"We want to build a sense
of community," Mayo said.
Mayo said there are plans
to improve Homecoming.
There will be a parade that
Friday, probably beginning
at 4 p.m.
"We want every class to
have a float," Mayo said. The
club even hopes to give away
a pickup truck. There will also
be something at halftime at
each home game.
"If we can generate excite-
ment, in two or three years
you won't be able to fit into
the stadium," Mayo said. "Our
program will be the envy of

Possible world record
Chris Deckert of Ponce de Leon, while fishing his first time
in the Gulf of Mexico, caught a potential International Game
and Fish Association world record for junior anglers.
Sunday, May 20, Chris was fishing on the party boat "New
Florida Girl" with his Uncle Bill Egleston and Capt. Jim West-
brook out of Destin. After a few hours of fishing and a number
of small mingo snappers Chris hooked something big, after 25
minutes of fighting, the big fish turned out to be a 58.8 lb gag
grouper, better known as a copper-belly grouper. Chris's fish
shattered the existing world record by over 20 lbs.
After returning to the dock the fish was measured and
weighed on a certified scale and attested to by a representative
of the IGFA and is now pending final approval by the IGFA. If
approved he will hold the world record in the junior division
for gag grouper. While Chris loves to bass fish this was his
first time fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Chris is a student at
Okaloosa-Walton Collegiate High School in Niceville.

Pet Talk
Everyone knows that donat-
ing blood can save lives - and
that includes people and their
pets. When a dog or is seri-
ously injured or suffering from
a disease, a blood transfusion
can be a lifesaver.
"Having a supply of avail-
able blood is critical to treating
animals," says Dr. Maureen
McMichael, an emergency
and critical care veterinarian at
Texas A&M University's Col-
lege of Veterinary Medicine &
Biomedical Sciences.
"The most common need
for blood comes from trauma.
If an animal gets hit by a car, it
needs blood fast." Other condi-
tions, such as heatstroke and
anemia, also require patients
to receive additional blood,
McMichael adds.
Dogs receive a physical
exam including blood test and
once approved, are placed on
a waiting list to be called when
blood is needed. Generally, the
hospital or clinic covers the
costs associated with donating
blood, and a file is kept on each
'dog, including a record of its
blood type.
There are several canine
blood.types, called dog eryth-
rocyte antigens, or DEA. Like
humans, canine blood can
either be positive or nega-
tive, but McMichael says the
canine blood bank is in need
of donors with negative blood
types because it is universally
"Dogs, unlike humans, are
not born with antibodies,"
McMichael says. "If the dog
has never had a transfusion,
technically it can receive any
blood type and shouldn't have
a reaction the first time."
If a dog had received a prior
transfusion, the information
should be listed in its file.
Blood testing would be used
to determine an exact match.
When blood is drawn, it is sep-
arated into red blood cells and
plasma for storage. Plasma
can be frozen up to five years
but red blood cells only last 30
days, McMichael notes.
Small animal veterinary
clinics are constantly seeking
donors because of the time
limitations of the supply.
"Technically, dogs are al-
lowed to give blood every 28
days, but we will allow them
to donate blood no more fre-
quently-than four times a year,"
Pet Talk is a service of
the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sci-
ences, TexasA&M University.

As the month of May winds
to a close, the "prattle" column
is headlong into its fifth year
of existence. The "Prattler"
really wanted to use the ex-
pression "into its fifth year of
popularity," but I must retain
my humility.
Some of you tell me almost
daily of your approval of the
"prattle." I am truly amazed
with the continued words of
encouragement received from
a cross section of readers, both
the young -as well as the not-

No attempt has been made
in recent months to give the
column a "report card.".- ac-
knowledge that such attempts
have been made during the
more than four years the ar-
ticle has appeared in print.
My friend, Ann Harcus of
Caryville, recently subscribed
to the Washington County
News for a family member
in Michigan. A written note
left at the News office states:
"Tell Perry this is because of
his column."
The Rev. Tim Steele, pas-
tor of Holmes Creek Baptist
Church, has told me in the
past that he appreciates my
writing, although not a native
to the area. His kind com-
ments recently regarding the
"prattler's" involvement in
various community activities
is also highly appreciated.
Aubrey Davis told me he
liked the Bank of Bonifay ar-
,aigle and that it reminded him
of the bank in his home town
in north Alabama'.
My brother, Jim, and my

mate, Estelle Hewett Scott,

which I have already done and
plan to do more.
Recently, I asked my friend,
Mr. Owens, (he addresses me
as Mr. Wells) what I could do
for him to reciprocate the gifts
of recorded music. His smiling
comment was to "just keep
writing those columns a' you
have been doing."
He especially mentioned
the recent extensive coverage
of Blue Pond Cemetery and
High Hill Primitive Baptist
Church. ,
Mary Taylor Hagan is the
wife of Bernice Hagan, who
was honored recently with
the placement of a monument
naming the Wausau Cemetery
in honor of her late husband.
She is also the mother of sons,
James, Willis, Roger Dale,
Bernice and Ronnie. The only
daughter is Ila.
At the May 12 dedication
ceremony, Mary told me of
her enjoyment in reading the
weekly "prattle" column. She
also related an experience of
attending a funeral service at
Blue Pond Cemetery "many
years ago."
The deceased lady was
named Mary Bishop, who
had lived with Theo and Delie
Varnum Miller in the'Wausau
area. Mary Hagan remembers
the burial being carried out
without a former funeral ser-
vice. The casket was placed
on an open grave and after
everyone had opportunity to
view the body, it was lowered
into the wooden burial box
and the grave covered.
In reading the old High Hill
Primitive Church records, I
believe this Mary Bishop is
referred to as M.E. Bishop
and was possibly a member
of that church.'
The newly installed sign
designating Possum Palace
in Wausau the Dalton Carter
Recreational Center was also
unveiled with an impressive
ceremony also held on May
12.1 had opportunity to visit in
the Carter home with Dalton
and Maidy, along with their
son, Dennis and wife, Debbie,
who came from Gainesville
for Dalton's honor.
Many accolades came from
that visit regarding the recent
articles on historic High Hill
Primitive Baptist Church and
Blue Pond Cemetery. Dalton
has loaned me a synopsis of
the minutes of Washington
Primitive Baptist Church (also
called Hard Labor).
This writing was prepared
by Chipley historian, Martha
McKnight, before all the re-
cords of the old church were
forwarded to a Primitive Bap-

Children look at a 'drug board' to learn how to identify different kinds of drugs. This was part of their anti-drug education last weekend in Pine Log State Forest.

Learning lessons about drugs

Children share fun

and education

Staff Writer
For five years now, families from
Ebro and Vernon have gathered at
Pine Log State Recreation Area on
Memorial Day weekend for fun, fel-
lowship and education.
Starting on Friday at noon and
running through Saturday at 3 p.m.,
families sleep in tents, go on nature
walks, play games and sing songs,
while the adults sneak in safety, drug
and civic lessons to ensure the event
is fun and educational.
"One of the messages given is
diversity," said Nathan Potter, who
comes from Dothan each year to
lead nature walks and sing-alongs.
"All the different trees and different
leaves make up the forest. A forest
pretty much represents the world
we line in. People are different. We
should get along like the trees in the
forest do."
Washington County Sheriff's
Deputy Wade Boan was there to
visit with the children and deliver
a lecture on the drug meth. Using
pictures of meth users during the
early and later stages of addiction,
one child commented, "He looks like
a zombie."
Boan didn't miss a beat. He said,
"He is a zombie. Meth has the high-
est addiction rate and the lowest
recovery rate.
"Your body says you must have it
and you will give it to me. God made
you. Don't you want to take care of
what God made?"
Florida State University's un-
derwater crime scene investigation
unit was there to show the kids how
technology assists in their work.
Adjunct Instructor Mark Feulmer
told the kids, "It's not like on TV.
Crime scene investigation is dirty
work. You have to go where the

crimes happen."
Trooper Milton Brown brought
the Florida Highway Patrol's roll-
over simulator and Paramedic Mark
Odom was there with an ambulance.
This year's event also featured a gi-
ant water slide and dunking booth
to replace swimming, fishing and
canoe races.
Due to the drought, water is al-
most non-existent in Sand Pond.
Still a laid back affair, leaders
have organized as a non-profit to
add other community service events
to their line-up. They plan job fairs
and field trips to cultural and political
venues, too.
The annual camp-out will always
remain the group's focus. "It started
as a father-son camp-out, to help
strengthen those bonds, but then the
ladies wanted to come, too, so now

it's a family affair," said Brown, who
is a board member of Family and
Community Outreach.
Odis Doyle of Vernon acts as the
non-profit's director. He said, "One
of the things that's on my heart is
that this community is fixing to grow,
with the four-laning of Hwy. 79 and
the airport.
"Businesses will come to Ebro.
This community is an old one and
we need to prepare these people for
the influx of people to come, get
them interested in what's going on,
in politics and the community."
Members of the non-profit's board
have the support of their employers.
Door prizes and event assistance
were provided by the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry, the Department of
Transportation, the Highway Patrol
and area churches.

BCF graduate's

During the graduation
practice, I showed one of the
younger graduates my first
school I.D. card. It was the
picture I took back when I
began this journey. This col-
lege did not have Heritage
Village, it did not have the
gymnasium that we graduat-
ed in, the Chapel did not look
like it does today, the library
was much smaller, the name
of the school was "Florida
Baptist Theological College"
not "The Baptist College of
Florida," and in the picture
on that I.D. card there is hair
on my head.
It is so true that "without
vision the people perish." It
was my desire to study and
learn enough about God and
His Word that He could use
me in a variety of settings.
Even mechanics have certi-
fications; I wanted to be as
trained to service people as
their car care providers.
Elder Brown and myself
visited the FBTC campus
one day and were informed
that the president of the
school was unavailable, but
we could meet with the vice
president after he finished
doing something. It was
when the vice president of
the school tracked us down
and brought us back to his of-
fice to visit and pray with us
that I was sold. I decided if it
was the Lord's will I would
attend this school.
I joined the other "week-

tending school at the time. A
group of us drove hours every
Saturday to attend our classes
after working all week.
I had been out of school for
nineteen years. It was 1977
and my wife and I had four of
our five children at home with
us. We were still facing the
trials of raising teenager after
teenager. There were still the
responsibilities that accom-
panied the mission church I
pastured- sermons had to be
prepared and preached and
Bible studies had to be writ-
ten and taught while pastoral

visits were expected.
The weekend classes were
a blessing for me in this aspect
because most of my class-
mates were other preachers
working in some capacity in
a church or seeking God, for
the opportunity to do so. Our
professors were mostly doc-
tors, some completing their
degrees, most of them also
serving as pastors.
They are famous for their
quizzes; a student has not
lived the BCF experience un-
til they have heard "Number
a half sheet of paper from
one to five." These brothers

The Empty Chair

A- man's daughter had
asked the local minister to
come and pray with her fa-
ther. When the minister ar-
rived, he found the man
lying in bed with his head
propped up on two pillows.
An empty chair sat beside his
The minister assumed that
the old fellow had been in-
formed of his visit. "I guess
you were expecting me," he
said. "No, who are you?"
asked the father. The minister
told him his name and then
remarked, "I see the empty
chair; I figured you knew I
was going to show up."
"Oh yeah, the chair," said
the bedridden man. "Would
you mind closing the door?"
Puzzled, the minister shut the
"I have never told anyone
this, not even my daughter,"
said the man. "But all of my
life I have never known how
to pray. At church I used to
hear the minister talk about
prayer, but it went right over

my head.
I abandoned any attempt
at prayer," the old man con-
tinued, "until one day about
four years ago my best friend
said to me, 'Johnny, prayer
is just a simple matter of

having a conversation with
God. Here is what I suggest.
Sit down in a chair; place an
empty chair in front of you
and in faith, see God on the
chair. It's not spooky because

always. " Then just speak to
Him in the same way you're
doing with me right now.'"

of hours every day. I'm care-
ful though. If my daughter
saw me talking to an empty.
chair, she'd either have a ner-
vous breakdown or send'me
off to the funny farm."
The minister was deeply
moved by the story and en-
couraged the old man to con-
tinue on the journey. Then he
prayed with him, anointed
him with oil and returned to
the church.
Two nights later the daugh-
ter called to tell the minister
that her daddy had died that
afternoon. "Did he die in
peace?" he asked. "Yes and
when I had to leave the house

about 2 p.m., he called me
over to his bedside and told
me he loved me and kissed
me on the cheek.
"When I got back from the
store an hour later, I found
him dead. But there was
something strange about his
death. Apparently, just before
Daddy died, he leaned over
and rested his head on the
chair beside the bed. What
do you make of that?" The
minister wiped a tear from
his eye and said, "I wish we
could all go like that."
Paul told us to, "pray with-
out ceasing" in 1 Thess. 5:17,
and Peter told us," to cast
all your anxiety on Him, be-
cause He cares for you" in 1
Pet. 5:7.
Prayer is one of the best
free gifts we receive. There is
no cost but a lot of rewards.
Just remember, the chair is
never really "empty".

and sisters taught us practi-
cal wisdom from the depths
of their personal experiences.
Every semester they remind-
ed us that our families should
come first. The miles that we
traveled are also a big part of
this journey. We spent a lot of
time in cars that were not al-
ways in the best of shape, and
God blessed us with traveling
mercy and grace. We never
even had a flat tire in all those
years, and all those I rode
with made it back safely each
week. This was a real bless-
ing because a lot of times ev-
eryone in the car was reading
or studying, even the driver!
Countless exams received
their final preparation along
those miles to the school.
Not only is the school dif-
ferent, but there is no way I
could be the same as I was
when this journey began. I
will always carry a part of
those men and women who
prayed with me before each
trip and the snickers when
people found out how long
I had been going. to school.
This journey has taken me
nine and a half years.
It is good to remember
that the race is not given to
the swift, nor the strong, but
those who endure to the end.
So encourage each other on
this journey and remember
this preacher when you feel
like giving up.

To Never Die
Judy, my wife, read an e-
mail to me that she had re-
ceived this week from some-
one. It basically said that there
was this elderly couple in bed,
and as they were waking up
in the morning, as usual, he
turned over and touched her.
To which she said, "Don't
touch me, I'm dead." To which
he then replied "What?" So
again she said to him, "Don't
touch me, I'm dead." He
then said, "You're not dead,
you're laying here in the bed
and you are talking with me."
And again, she said, "No, I'm
dead." So he proceeded to ask
her why she thought she was
dead, to which she replied,
"I'm not hurting anywhere,
so I must be dead."
Death is a part of life we
do not like to think about or
plan for. Even to hear words
such as cancer or heart attack
brings pain and fear within
us. When the phone rings at
2 a.m. we get chill bumps and
are frightened for what we
might hear when we pick up
the phone. Actually most peo-
ple will do anything and pay
any amount just to postpone'
death a few hours.
Judy and I spent most of
this week with her family in
North Georgia because her
sister-in-law went home to be
with the Lord this past Sat-
urday morning. She had had
a tumor on her brain a few
years back and seemed to
have been healed of that; but
then cancer appeared in other
parts of her body. Though the
family is relieved that she no
longer has to suffer as she did
with the cancer, the family
will truly miss her.
The blessed part of her
Home-Going is that she has
left us with a wonderful tes-
timony of her faith and hope
which was in Christ, and
which she has now been re-
warded for as she is now
in His presence. The Bible
teaches us that when a dis-
ciple of Christ is absent from
this body, then they are in His
presence (1 Corinthians 5:6-
8), and we rejoice in that as-
Even for believers, because
the time and length of separa-
tion is uncertain, we experi-
ance hurt and disappointment
due to the "Home-Going" of
those we love.
But think with me on the
idea of "If We Never Died",
and that everyone you know
would never die. Before you
think to yourself, "now that
sounds good", think about
it very clearly. What would
this world be like if we kept
these bodies that we have and
they never died? I don't think
you're going to like what you
If we never died that would
mean that the blind would
remain blind, the paralyzed
would remain paralyzed, the
retarded child would never
have a normal mind, our bod-
ies would remain as they are
and continue to get older.
If we never died the last
would always be last, the first
would remain first, the least
would always be the least, the
terminally ill would remain
ill but never terminate and the
aching hearts would continue
to ache and never be healed.
Without death, this world
would not be a better place.
Actually as I am thinking
about the idea that supposes
we never died, I am beginning
to see a very horrible picture
of what this world would be

'Water Works! Park' VBS

Tim Hall

Yet deep inside of each one
of us is that desire for a life
not measured by years or by
flesh! Most of us yearn for
another crack at life, at some
point in our life. We desire
to start all over but yet be
able to keep the wisdom that
we have obtained so that we
could change the things that
we should have, or .would like
to have done differently.
But we must carry this
subject further. Wouldn't it be
wonderful to die and not be
dead? Well, that's not a vague
hope. That's the unchange-
able promise of God. You
see every living person has
the opportunity to receive the
resurrected Jesus Christ into
his or her life and to be filled
with the Holy Ghost. Once a
relationship with God is es-
tablished through the blood
of the risen Christ, physical
death is the only death that
can touch you.
Though I may some day
lay this body down, the real
me, the God-created soul will
live on never to experience
one moment of eternal death,
which is hell, which was cre-
ated for the devil and his fol-
lowers, those who choose
to reject the truth of God's
The horrible picture that
I was seeing before has now
changed because the resur-
rection of Jesus Christ has
changed everything. Through
experience I can tell you that
receiving the pardon that
Christ paid for our sins on
Calvary and receiving eter-
nal life through Him changes
It changes our willingness
to forgive and our willingness
to shift the blame to ourselves,
because He forgave and shift-
ed the blame. It changes us
into people of boldness who
do not fold under cancer,
heart attack, or open-heart
surgery or anything else we
can name.
For in His word He prom-
ised that "And whoever lives
and believes in Me shall neV-
er die. Do you believe this?"
(John 11:26 KJV).
No there's no reason to
hurry death, because with
Him in our lives He said that
we could have life and have it
more abundantly. But neither
is there any reason to fear it
either. As Paul so wonder-
fully proclaimed, "For to
me, to live is Christ, and to
die is gain" (Philippians 1:21

Pu On the Armo 4f od
Although it may seem odd to think of the instruments
of war as being holy or righteous, if we are "for God,"
then we must be against the enemies of God. This may
require us to take an active role in battling the enemies of
holiness and righteousness. Each day we are faced with
the problems and decisions of the world. But handling our
daily affairs and dealing with others
in a good and ethical manner will
make us stronger and draw us closer
to our Heavenly Father. How should
one prepare for this cosmic battle of
good versus evil? First and foremost,
we should put on the breastplate
+ fof righteousness while wearing the
� , helmet of faith. Faith, righteousness,
strong beliefs and good works are
the essential pieces of God's armor.
These, along with daily prayer and
the confidence that comes from knowing we are God's
warriors, are sure to make us invincible.
Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous,
be strong. R.S.V. 1 Corinthians 16:13
