Fraud alert
Se- erda years ago a resident
in Florida became the \ictim
of the Australian Loterx
Scam. She lost S1-5.1100.
Because of this crime she had
to -:.I, her home because she
could not afford to live in it
an\ nore. She is now living on
her small social security check.
This April she received a
phone call from someone
claiming to be an attorney
working with the Attorney
General's Office. His goal was
to assist victims of various
international lottery scams.
He said that all she needed to
do was pay him S872. He said
that he could continue to
work her case so that she
would get her money back.
Thankfully she was suspi-
cious and decided to contact
her local sheriff's office and
after a short investigation they
confirmed this to be a scam.
Sheriff Bobby Haddock
wants everyone to remember
that if you are a victim neither
the State Attorney or the Attor-
ney General's Office will ask
you for money for their services.
Sheriff Haddock says, "If you
are ever in doubt please call the
Washington County Sheriffs
Office fraud line at 638-8477. If
the person calling you is legiti-
mate they won't mind you
checking them out first"
CASE is a Partnership of

iffs Office to prevent elder

Our Sincere Gratitude


Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
Or sat quiet in a chair,
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
That anyone could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
W whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so much whatever the part.
Words could never express how the sup-
port of the community has comforted us


during our tragic loss.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU.

General Facts About Tobacco
*Tobacco use kills more than 400,000 Americans each year-more
than alcohol, AIDS, car crashes, illegal drugs, murders and suicides
combined.
* Each day about 4,000 kids (under 18) try smoking for the first time,
and another 1,000 more kids become new regular daily smokers.
* The chemical nicotine found in cigarettes and other tobacco
products is a powerful central nervous system stimulant that is
highly addictive. In high doses it is extremely poisonous, and is
commonly used as an insecticide.
* Lung cancer, throat cancer, heart disease, stroke and emphysema
are just some of the painful, life-threatening diseases associated with
smoking. Smoking also is associated with cancers of the mouth,
larynx, esophagus, pancreas, cervix, kidney, stomach and bladder.







Tobacco Advertising and Marketing
* Tobacco companies spend over $23 million a year on lobbying the
U.S. congress and contributions to federal candidates and political
parties.
* Cigarette and spit-tobacco companies continue to advertise heavily
at retail outlets near schools and playgrounds, with large ads and
signs clearly visible from outside the stores.
* A 1995 study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found
that teens are more likely to be influenced to smoke by cigarette
advertising than by peer pressure.
* Tobacco Companies associate the use of their products with rodeos,
rock stars, and sports heroes, they even sponsor rock concerts,
rodeos, auto racing, and tractor pulls.
*The tobacco industry spends over $13.3 billion a year on advertising,
which is more that $36 million a day, only to attract new customers.

Opinion


4A Washington County News


Wednesday, May 21, 2008


With the announcement that he'll
seek the Libertarian Party's 21)08
presidential nomination, former
Georgia Republican congressman
Bob Barr has added another twist to
an already crazy election year.
Barr, who hopes to win the LP's
top spot at the party's convention
that starts Thursday, May 22. in
Denver, has an impressive resume
that backs up his claim that he's the
most qualified presumptive
candidate of any party.
A lawyer, former U.S. Attorney
and ex-CIA official, Barr, 59, served
in the House
from 1995 to
2003, where
he was known
as a hard-line
conservative
who hated the
S IRS and
fought
tirelessly for
Opinion privacy rights
and other civil
Bill Steigerwald liberties.
Barr is far
from the
perfect libertarian. Many libertarians
have serious issues with him over
things like his vote in favor of the
Patriot Act (which he now regrets)
and his zealous support of the war on
drugs, which he has backed away
from.
When I talked to Barr by
telephone he was on the grounds of
the United Nations, where he said
nothing is very good even the
food.
Q: Why did you decide to run? .
A: I decided to run for several
reasons. One, because I want to
restore the Constitution to our
federal government. It seems to have
been completely forgotten and
disregarded by Congress and by this
administration. I believe in the
Constitution. I believe in separation
of powers. I believe in the rule of
law. I believe in limited government.
And these are principles and policies
that apparently neither the national
Republican nor the national
Democrat Party believes in. I believe
great damage is being done to our
Constitution and I see no remedy at
all, no likelihood of that changing if
we rely on the two parties to field
our candidates for national office.
The Libertarian Party alone
among America's political parties
truly stands for smaller government
and maximized individual liberty. I
believe if we don't take a stand now
and try to reverse course, we may
never have the opportunity again. I
think there are a number of factors
coming together for this cycle that
give us a much greater likelihood for
success than any previous election.
Q: Is there any one issue or
event or trend that made you
abandon the Republican Party -
besides the usual ones: its failure to
shrink the federal government,
the spending and the failure to


HE!4A THAT POOR Rt


T NOT ENCUM. EP E
MF A TENACIOUS 5POILE' WHO

CAGLECAlfTOONS.COMN


follow a prudent foreign policy?
A: Well, the Republican Party
abandoned me and other libertarian-
leaning Republicans. Perhaps more
than anything else, aside from those
things that you enumerated, it is the
utter disregard by this administration
for fundamental constitutional
principles of governance; to act
according to the notions that the
president doesn't have to obey the
law, that a president is not bound by
court decision or act of Congress in
what he does, is extremely
destructive to the very foundation of
our country.
Q: What's left of your conservative
social views, if anything, that would
give loyal libertarians pause today?
A: Well, we agree on the
fundamental principle of shrinking
the power of the government and
maximizing individual liberty. I do
not wholeheartedly embrace the
notion, for example, though, that the
government cannot define any social
relationship. Some libertarians
believe rather strongly that the
government should not even define
marriage even the state
government. I have no problem with
the people of a state defining a
relationship known as marriage. I
believe that ought to be up to the
states, not the federal government.
Q: What is your position on the

running for president has dared to
talk about for the last 30 or 40 years?
It's been a continuing war against the
rights and liberties of Americans, yet
no one touches it.
A: We do need to start addressing
it. I do not think that the American
people are ready to embrace the
notion that there ought to be across-
the board legalization of drugs. But I
do think we need to begin rolling
back the massive government power
structure that has been built up
pursuant to the war on drugs, which
has not proved to be a success,
certainly. Therefore, I think we need
to certainly respect states rights and
decisions by the people in an area
such as medicinal marijuana. If the
people of California, for example,
decide that there is an appropriate
place for the use of marijuana for
medicinal purposes, and they pass a
law to that affect, that ought to be
respected by the federal government.
Q: Libertarians are generally
against our interventionist foreign
policy in Iraq. Are you?
A: I believe the occupation of Iraq
is not something that is sound policy
and is not consistent with the
historical norms of a national
defense policy. So I think that we
need to and I would as president
- begin immediately and
significantly drawing down our
military and economic presence in
Iraq for two reasons: One, because it


is not in our interest to nation-build
or to occupy foreign lands and,
secondly, if we would ever wish to
have the Iraqi government take
responsibility for its own affairs, we
necessarily have to remove the
security blanket that right now makes
it very easy for them not to do so.
Q: Assuming you get the
Libertarian Party nomination, how
will you measure your success as a
candidate?
A: There will be several
benchmarks. One is securing support
generally in order to participate in
the presidential debates that will
be extremely important. We don't
have a lot of time basically about
five months from the time of the
convention and we're going to
have a lot of ground to cover and a
lot of people to reach. We're going to
prioritize. At the end of the day, our
priorities will be to win; secondly to
open up the political system so that
the Libertarian Party truly becomes a
consistent player at the national
level; and thirdly, to have raised the
level of debate considerably above
where it is now in this presidential
race.

It's time to speak up


To the Editor,
Many times have I stood beside the
masses, shaking my head in disbelief at
the slipshod plans of those in one form
of public office or another. But after the
atrocity I witnessed Saturday morning I
can no longer maintain my silence.
At 10:30 a.m. on Saturday the
May 10. I was cleaning my truck at the
car wash across from the giant flag by
1-10.
I looked up to see them taking down
the flag. I'd never seen this process and
was inclined to watch, as I had always
been curious as to how they managed
that giant flag without letting it touching
the ground.
Much to my surprise, the excepted
method is to ball it up in a Waste
Management trashcan as it comes down.
Yes vou read correctly.
A big green Waste Management can
on wheels just like the one in thousands
of county residents" front yards.
Now I understand four men can't fold
a flag the size of a house, but come on

people! Surely you must all see the
problem with this.
As if it wasn't bad enough that the
spotlights in place don't adequately
illuminate the flag at night, now we are
packing it in a rubbish can.
What's next?
And as mad as I'd like to be at the
people in charge, the fact is, it's as much
our fault as it is theirs. I mean after all
they did not get in these positions by
themselves, we put them there. Every
time we stand by and shake our heads
we become enablers. It's time to start
speaking up!

LOCAL VIEWS


A radical plea

for honesty about

homosexuality

1 am saddened by the flippancy of
the issue concerning homosexuality at
Ponce de Leon High. It is no secret
that this is a growing movement
among the teens in the Holmes
County school system and Ponce de
Leon is not alone in this. The parents
said on television this is all about the
kids' freedoms. It is very disturbing
that parents are afraid to honestly
discuss the serious problems with
homosexual behavior and even worse
think that it is a good thing.
There are serious problems with
the homosexual lifestyle.
First, homosexual relationships do
not produce children. If
homosexuality is good, wholesome
and natural, then why does it not
produce children? It is clearly
unnatural and hinders the natural
product of sexuality, which is
reproduction. This is one of the heart
wrenching issues in the homosexual
community. Homosexuals often have
a natural desire for children but have
chosen an unnatural deviant sexuality
that can never produce children.
Secondly, homosexuality has
tremendous emotional consequences.
In a study done by the Journal of the
Consulting and Clinical Psychology it
was determined that homosexuals
have a higher alcohol, drug
dependency and suicidal tendency
than heterosexuals and these
tendencies are growing continually
within the homosexual community,
Homosexuals that participated in
these studies have confessed that this
lifestyle goes deeper into deviant
sexual behavior such as molestation,
pedophilia, and other things that
should not even be spoken.
This has brought about an
unnecessary financial burden for
taxpayers as the homosexuals become
disabled by disease and depend on
the nation's Medicaid and Medicare
programs according to an article by
the Centers for Disease Control
Anyone involved in homosexuality or
considering it should read about the
alarming suicide rates among
homosexuals. Additionally,
homosexuality is unhealthy physically.
There are severe diseases that
accompany this perversion, which can
not be ignored according to the CDC
and the AMA. Homosexual behavior
is directly related to the AIDS
epidemic, a rise in Hepatitis and
Staph infections, according to the
CDC. However, when the media
reports this it is quickly hushed by the
growing legal lobby of the
homosexual movement. For example,
a few weeks ago an outbreak of an
unusual strand of Staphylococcus in
California and neighboring states was
traced back to homosexual men. This
story made one news cycle and then
was immediately silenced for fear of
producing discrimination against the
homosexual community. This vast and
growing homosexual population has
tainted the blood bank and is the
main reason for the extreme costs of
health insurance. The federal
spending on AIDS alone has well
exceeding over $4 billion per year
according to the Federal Budget
Commission.
Lastly, homosexuality is deviant.
Dr. James Kennedy interviewed
homosexuals who openly admitted
that homosexuality recruits sexually
and often becomes predator like,
especially towards teenagers. I cannot
imagine why any parent would be
proud that their child is a homosexual
because the child's deviant pleasure
very well might also kill them. It is
parental neglect that does not train a
child away from deviant behavior that
could result in their death.
However, what is most disturbing
is the tolerance of sexual perversion
in the Christian Church that is going
unchecked. I believe that the
unwillingness of pastors to discipline
adultery, divorce, and sexual
immorality and accurately uphold
God's standard for marriage and
family to be the cause for societal
confusion over sexuality.

Remembering Eddy Arnold


The month of May has been a
time of tragedy and death for three
entertainers in the country and
gospel music industry. We lost Eddy
Arnold, Dottie Rambo, who was
tragically killed in a tour bus
accident in Missouri and Jerry
Wallace, who died in California.
Today, my column is on the life
and death of a long time friend,
Eddy Arnold. It may sound strange
to list Eddy Arnold as my friend
when, the truth of the matter is, I
never met the man!
Country Music Hall of Famer,
Eddy Arnold died May 8 in Franklin,
Tenn. at the age of 89. Ironically,
Arnold's wife, Sally Gayhart Arnold,
passed away in early March of this
year. They are survived by two
children,
Richard
Edward
Arnold, Jr. of
Nashville and
Jo Ann Pollard
of Brentwood,
Tenn. There
are two
y S grandchildren
Prattle and four great
Pe Wells grandchildren.
Richard
Edward
(Eddy) Arnold was born in 1915 to a
farming family near Henderson,
Tenn. Soon after his father died, the
nation was in the Great Depression.
This resulted in the Arnold family
working as "sharecroppers" in order
to live. This era was also the
beginning of the singing career of
Eddy Arnold. He began singing for
extra money at various gatherings.
In 1940 he joined WSM
personality, and Grand Ole Opry
star, Pee Wee King's Golden West
Cowboys. Eddy immediately gained
notoriety on the Opry and by touring
U. S. military bases in the early
stages of World War II.
After heading out on his own,
Arnold honored his family "roots" by
adopting the stage name of
"Tennessee Plowboy". Eddy and his
band, The Tennessee Plowboys, soon
acquired Colonel Tom Parker as
manager and recorded Nashville's
first major label session for RCA
Records in 1944.
Only twenty-two years later, Eddy
Arnold was inducted into the
Country Music Hall of Fame in 1966.
In my formative years, I recall
listening to Eddy Arnold both on the
Grand Ole Opry and on an early
morning radio broadcast. Reception
was poor on the battery powered
radio, a Silvertone, which was
ordered from Sears, Roebuck and
Company.
One of the earliest songs that I
remember was titled "Thats How
Much I Love You". At the ripe old
age of 14 or 15, the "prattler" had
discovered girls and Eddy Arnold,
and other country music artist,
provided songs that I would have
sang to the ladies, if indeed I were a
singer.
I believe the opening verse to the
above song went something like this.
"Now, if I had a nickel, I know what
I would do, I'd spend it all for candy,
and give it all to you-I'd spend it all

for candy, and give it all to you, for
that's how much I love you-baby,
that's how much I love you". There
were additional verses equally as
romantic when one is experiencing
his first case of "puppy love".
My attachment to Eddy Arnold
was possibly intensified when I
learned that he and wife, Sally's, first
meeting was in a five and dime store.
That American Institution, called a
five and ten cent store, is where I
met my future wife, Hester. Eddy
met Sally in the Louisville, Ky.
variety store while he was still
touring with the Pee Wee King Band.
Sally was working in the store, and it
is reported that a glance between
them proved to be "love at first
sight".
After numerous visits, and
considerably notion-buying, Eddy
asked her out for a date and the
blossoming romance soon brought a
marriage proposal. The couple
married in Nashville when that tour
was completed.
On January 3, 1948, Grand Ole
Opry star, Eddy Arnold, had the
number one record in the country
music charts with "I'll Hold You In
My Heart. Jt stayed number one for
thirteen weeks. Before the year was
over, Eddy Arnold would have total
domination of the country music
charts, with only one lone exception,
Jimmy Wakley's "One Has My
Name".
The year 1948 ended with all
other records in the charts being an
Eddy Arnold record. These include:
"Anytime", "Texarkana Baby",
"Bouquet of Roses", and "Just a
Little Lovin'".
At the end of 1948, Eddy's
manager, Colonel Tom Parker,
known for his toughness, made a
demand on the Grand Ole Opry
management for a "cut" of the
proceeds of the long running
Saturday night radio broadcast for
the singer who was so much in
demand. When Parker was turned
down, Eddy Arnold's days on the
popular Opry were numbered.
It is reported that Arnold
regretted saying goodbye to Opry
friends such as Minnie Pearl, Roy

Acuff, and Uncle Dave Macon. His
popularity continued to sky rocket.
He did a fifteen minute daily radio
broadcast on Mutual Broadcasting
System sponsored by Ralston
Purina. His opening song each day
was an Eddy Arnold standard,
"Cattle Call".
Eddy Arnold's replacement on
the Grand Ole Opry was a young
country singer, George Morgan,
from Waverly, Tenn. His voice had
been acclaimed as being much like
that of Arnold.
As George Morgan made his way
to the Ryman Auditorium for the
first time, it is reported that he
approached a man on the street on
Fifth Avenue and inquired: "Can
you tell me where the Grand Ole
Opry house is?" The man laughed.
"It's right behind you", he replied.
His informant was Eddy Arnold.
"Candy Kisses" was the trademark
song for George Morgan on the
Opry.
Rollin "Oscar" Sullivan, of Lonzo
and Oscar fame, credits Eddy
Arnold with "pitching" him the song
"I'm My Own Grandpa" which
earned Sullivan a spot on the noted
Grand Ole Opry.
Our son, Emory, who traveled the
nation and played basketball with
Meadowlark Lemon's "Shooting
Stars", had the pleasure of meeting
Eddy Arnold in Santa Ana, Calif. in
January 1986.
They were both working out in a
gymnasium and a casual
conversation brought on the
introduction to the famous pop and
country singer.
The Arnolds lived their last years
on a beautiful 107-acre spread just
outside of Brentwood, Tenn. There
Eddy raised cows and horses. He
also fished in Kentucky Lake and
hunted in the midlands of
Tennessee. Eddy followed these
same pursuits long before music had
gained a foothold in his life. From
these experiences of life arose a vital
blend of song and sound that makes
Eddy Arnold such a powerful figure
among American entertainers today.
He will be missed.
See you all next week.

Also attending was Calvin Stevenson,
superintendent of Washington County

whimsical attitude as well as concern for
the future of the children receiving the
scholarships.
"The most precious gift God could've
possibly ever given us...are the children,"
said Stevenson.
Also brought up was the need for men-
tors for the children. There are 12 children
without a mentor. They said that all that is
required for a mentor is at least one hour,
once a week.
Applications for the "Take Stock in

committee of six will review the applica-
tion. Qualified students are then notified.

School Board Member John Hawkins said that another
serious problem with the current school is having the bus
loading area up front with the parking lot. There is the pos-
sibility of parents and buses getting tangled. and that could
endanger students. There is a new turn lane just up the road
so that buses will not block traffic.
The new buildings are designed to be safe enough to with-
stand a Category 4 hurricane, so the school can double as a

The project is estimated to cost around S7 million from

"Right now, that's a school that our kids can be safe in and
proud of."

A career

CONCORD, N.C. Nary
a wrong move. That's the
story of Dale Jarrett's
career, which ended in the
Sprint All-Star Race on
Saturday night.
The Hickory resident is
51. His most recent victory
occurred in 2005. He's step-
ping into the television
booth already has, actually
- with his reputation intact.
It's the right time.
Perhaps most significant
to the 1999 Winston Cup
champion, winner of 32
races, is the respect he car-
ries among his peers. There
have been times when Jar-
rett has been prickly. Anger
flashed a few times on the
track. Those rare moments
just made him human.
Unlike many of his peers
- Mark Martin, Bill Elliott,
Terry Labonte Jarrett is
determined to make a clean
break. This was it. He ended
his all-star career in an all-
star race.
"I hate to use the word
never, but I have no plans
whatsoever of getting back
in a car," said Jarrett, "and I
can't even come up with a
scenario.... No, I'm not get-
ting back in. That's my plan
right now, and I just don't
see anything changing that.
I've told this to my family,
and I've told it to the fans. I
think whenever you tell
them things like this, that
you need to hold to that."
Most will miss him.
"He's a really, really fine
man and a really great
person from a really good
family," said Martin.
Really.
"He's one of my favorites
as a driver, as a person, and
I've had the opportunity to
race hard against him, race
for championships against
him, and in my opinion he
stacks up there with the all-
time best," said Jeff Gordon.
Jarrett has always been
conscious of his image. At
times, he's been rankled by a
reporter's words, but he's
never broken off relations.
There's perspective perhaps
the perspective of the son of a
racer turned broadcaster -
that others lack, and even
some evidence that there's
more to a writer words than
his most recent words.
"I will say just one thing,"
said Jarrett in a valedictory
press conference. "It's been
a long time, and I appreciate
the way that all of you have
treated me very fairly. I can't
say that you've always writ-
ten good things, but that's
not your job. Your job is to
write what you think and
report.
"You've been extremely
fair to me, and I appreciate
that and it means a lot.
Thank you. You do a lot of
good things for the sport. I
really do appreciate it, and
it's been great."
Not a bad way to go out,
huh?

ES third grade visits landfill


SUDmmeo phnoos


Vernon Elementary third
grade students from Mrs.
Capps and Mrs. Newcomb's
classes visited Waste
Management at Springhill
Landfill on May 9. The trip
was planned in conjunction
with their Science curriculum
to help the students develop a
genuine respect for the
environment we all share.
While on-site, the students
learned about state-of-the-art
engineering techniques that
help maintain and restore
landfills into usable green
spaces. In addition, they
learned how man-made
materials affect the
environment and how
through recycling they can
decrease the negative affect
on the world they live in.


Julia and
Emelia Brock
Emelia Brock was
crowned Baby Miss Vernon
and her sister, Julia, won
first runner-up for Future
Little Miss Vernon.
They are the daughters of
Travis and Rachel (Had-
dock) Brock of Vernon.
Grandparents are Ronald
and Regina Clark of Grand
Ridge, Ricky and Carolyn
Haddock, and Travis and
Becky Brock, all of Vernon.
Great-grandparents are
Marcille and the Rev.
Jerome Lewis of Grand
Ridge, Donald and JoAnn
Haddock of Chipley. They
also have a great-great-
grandmother, Iva Lou Curry
of Bonifay.


Flag missing from cemetery
On May 18, 2007, members of the Chipley AMVETS Post 007 placed three
flag poles in Glenwood Cemetery.
That is the date the original flags were raised.
A few weeks ago, the flags which had been torn and tattered by the weather,
were replaced, but now one flag is missing. The new POW/MIA flag was stolen
off the pole on April 21 or 22.
AMVETS is offering a reward for information leading to the person or
persons who took the flag. Anyone with information, is asked to call 638-4126.


FHP inspection

checkpoints
Florida Highway Patrol will
conduct driver license and vehicle
inspection checkpoints during the
month of May on the roadways
listed below in Holmes, Jackson
and Washington counties.
Recognizing the danger
presented to the public by
defective vehicle equipment,
troopers will concentrate their
efforts on vehicles being operated
with defects such as bad brakes,
worn tires and defective lighting
equipment. In addition, attention
will be directed to drivers who
would violate the driver license
laws of Florida.
Officers will be on State Roads
No. 2, 10, 69, 71, 73, 77, 79, 81,
273, 276, 277, and 286 during the
month. County roads with
inspection points include No. 69A,
162, 164, 165, 165A, 167, 169, 173,
177, 177A, 179, 181, 185, 271, 276,
279, 280, 284, and Snow Hill Road.
The Patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
while ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

DONNA DYKES
Staff Writer
Area students and their families were invited
to attend an informational session on Florida
Virtual School (FLVS) Monday afternoon at
Chipley Public Library. They learned that public,
private and home schooled students in grades
6-12 are eligible to take courses online.
The school is part of the Florida public
education system and serves students in all
67 Florida districts. It also serves students,
schools and districts around the nation through
tuition-based instruction, curriculum provision
and training.
It's a sure bet that the founder. Julie Young.
did not visualize the far-reaching effect her idea
would have. In fact, most of those concerned with
the virtual school.did not think it would appeal to
everyone. At that time, they thought only
students in advanced computer classes, or those
who were exceptionally self-disciplined, would be
interested.
Since its beginning in 1997 as a pilot project by
the Florida Legislature. FLVS has grown from 77
students to more than 56,000 in the 2007-08
school year.


sch00oo


More than 1. .11 1 individual enrollments were
delivered in 2005-06, to approximately 31,000
students across the state. As a special school
district, FLVS is free of charge to all Florida
students in grades 6-12 while out-of-state
students enroll on a tuition basis.
It's the country's first statewide Internet-based
public high school, which provides GED alterna-
tives both in Florida and out-of-state through its
Global Services Division.
Public Affairs Liaison Ya'Frica Edwards, and
Chrissy Cunningham presented information
about everything from GED to honors, and the
school's 10 Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
They also answered questions on the program
based in Orlando.
Cora Hawkins, a CHS junior, sat in on Mon-
day's presentation. She has already completed
the first part of a course in Chinese which lasted
36 weeks. Cora plans to start the Chinese II
course soon. She also is studying Marketing at
Washington-Holmes Technical Center.
"Florida Virtual is just as good a school as one
you would attend in person, only better," she
said. "You get to call your teachers and e-mail

A PASTOR'S
PONDERINGS


The

sleeping

giant

There is something
about someone sleeping
that catches our attention. I
can think of nothing
sweeter than watching a
newborn baby sleep in the
arms of a mother.
Somehow, when we get
older, the sweetness of
sleep seems to wear off.
Sleep
becomes
more of a
necessity
-| than some-
thing that is
beautiful to
behold.
I heard a
story about
Pastor an office
Charlie worker that
Newman had a habit
of falling
asleep at their desk. Upon
being discovered, they
would always have an inter-
esting excuse. Here are a
few that I remember:
They told me that this
might happen at the blood
bank.
Whew, I guess I left
the top off the liquid paper.
I was testing the key-
board for drool resistance.
One day the boss walked
in right in the middle of
one of the power naps. The
boss startled the sleeping
worker and without missing
a blink, the worker said '...
and thank you for such a
wonderful boss. Amen!"
Sleep is a necessary part
of the human body. We
require a certain amount of
sleep to be healthy. With-
out sleep, we become less
effective during our waking
hours.
Somehow, the church
has become addicted to
sleep. Remember, too
much of a good thing can
be bad for you.
As I talk with other pas-
tors throughout our com-
munities, I find that there is
a rampant epidemic of spir-
itual sleep amongst the
Christian community.
We have relegated the
"go" in gospel to the pastors

Memorial Day more than a Holiday


As the Memorial Day weekend
approaches, please take note with
me that it is more than a holiday in
which we take off from work to sit
around the pool and eat Barbecue. It
is much more than that. I am afraid
that we have failed in teaching our
children the true definition of
Memorial Day, because we live in a
society, which only lives for today,
not taking thought of yesterday or
tomorrow. But if it were not for some
true patriots who loved God, their
family and country, we would not be
able to enjoy the freedoms that we so
often take for granted and abuse.
As you know, those who know it
best and are truthful no longer con-
sider America a Christian nation, but
it was not always that way. In the
beginning a humble Baptist pastor by
the name of Roger Williams was per-
secuted so much for his belief that he
fled with a few followers to the land
that is now called Rhode Island.
There he founded the city of Provi-
dence. which is another name for
God. In the constitution of that state
he wrote, that every man should be
permitted to worship God according
to the dictates of his own conscience.
When Thomas Jefferson and others
were forming the Constitution of the
United States, they borrowed this
principle and inserted it as an undying


law in this wonderful document.
Many battles have been fought
and many. many lives have been


given to defend tl








rnihe
Heart
Tim Hall


his great country
and the consti-
tution that it
was founded
on. So please.
as you cele-
brate the holi-
day. remember
this great
country that
we love did not
come easy or
cheap. Stop
so m e w h e r e


today and praise and thank God for
Godly men and women who were
willing to sacrifice everything, so
their children might enjoy the free-
dom that we have today.
While you're thanking God for
these men. also praise Him for being
with them and strengthening them.
For without God wanting there to be
an America. there would not have
been one. As He ,ays in the scrip-
tures. He is the One who raises up
kings and nations and He is the One
who brings them down. good or bad.
Yes. I believe many of those who
have given their live, in the past
would be ashamed today of what we
have become as a nation. but they


would encourage us that it can be
turned around. Many of them would
refer us to read 2 Chronicles 7:14
and then encourage us to follow the
instructions there of: "if My people
who are called by My name will hum-
ble themselves, and pray and seek
My face, and turn from their wicked
ways, then I will hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin and heal
their land." (NKJV)
Would you join with me today in
praying, "Lord. I want to thank you for
this great nation that you have given
us. I want to thank you for giving us
great people who have gone before us
with a great vision for which America
was founded, and a vision that has
been worth fighting for through the
years. Thank you for giving them the
strength and the fortitude to stand for
what they believed was worth dying
for. Lord. will you please help us. who
are living today, return to that you
would have us to be. That this nation
might once again be known as a
Nation that fears and loves you. and
may you begin with me. Amen."

How wonderful


it is to be loved


The passengers on the bus
\watoihed sN\mpathoticalsl\ ,i the
attractive oinig \\oman \ith
the \\hite cane made her \\a \
carefully\ uIp the steps. She paid
the dri\ecr and. using her hands
to feel the location of the seats.
\walked do\\n the aisle and
found the seat he'd told her was
empty. Then she
settled in. placed
her briefcase on
her lap and rested
her cane against
her leg.
It had been a .
year since Susan.
34. became blind.
Due to a medical Let
misdiagnosis she
had been rendered Li cht
sightless, and she es
was suddenly
thrown into a world
of darkness, anger, frustration
and self-pity. Once a fiercely
independent woman, Susan
now felt condemned by this ter-
rible twist of fate to become a
powerless, helpless burden on
everyone around her. "How
could this have happened to
me?" she would plead, her
heart knotted with anger. But
no matter how much she cried
or ranted or prayed, she knew
the painful truth her sight was
never going to return.
A cloud of depression hung
over Susan's once optimistic
spirit. Just getting through each
day was an exercise in frustra-
tion and exhaustion. And all
she had to cling to was her hus-
band Mark.
Mark was an Air Force offi-
cer and he loved Susan with all
of his heart. When she first lost
her sight, he watched her sink
into despair and was deter-
mined to help his wife gain the
strength and confidence she
needed to become independent
again. Mark's military back-
ground had trained him well to
deal with sensitive situations,
and yet he knew this was the
most difficult battle he would
ever face.
Finally, Susan felt ready to
return to her job, but how
would she get there? She used
to take the bus, but was now too
frightened to get around the
city by herself. Mark volun-
teered to drive her to work each
day, even though they worked
at opposite ends of the city. At
first, this comforted Susan and
fulfilled Mark's need to protect
his sightless wife who was so
insecure about performing the
slightest task. Soon, however,
Mark realized that this arrange-
ment wasn't working. It was
hectic, and costly.
Susan is going to have to start
taking the bus again, he admit-
ted to himself. But just the
thought of mentioning it to her
made him cringe. She was still
so fragile, so angry. How would
she react?
Just as Mark predicted,
Susan was horrified at the idea
of taking the bus again. "I'm
blind!" she responded bitterly.
"How am I supposed to know
where I'm going? I feel like
you're abandoning me." Mark's
heart broke to hear these
words, but he knew what had to
be done.
He promised Susan that
each morning and evening he
would ride the bus with her. for
as long as it took, until she got
the hang of it. And that is
exactly what happened. For two
solid weeks. Mark. military uni-
form and all. accompanied
Susan to and from work each
day. He taught her how to rely
on her other senses, specifically
her hearing, to determine
where she was and how to
adapt to her new environment.
He helped her befriend the bus
drivers who could watch out for
her. and save her a seat. He

nude her laug.Ih. C\cn those
not-o-good id,\ s \hen sl'he
would d trip ceiling the bus. or
drop her briicftCisc.
Lach morning they made the
journal together, and Mark
\would take a cab back to his
office. Although this routine
\\a"s en\e more cost\ and
exhausting than
the previous one.
Mark knew it was
only a matter of
time before Susan
^ would be able to
ride the bus on her
Of own.
He believed in
our* her. in the Susan
lie used to know
Shine before she'd lost
Webb her sight, who
wasn't afraid of any\
challenge and who
would never, ever quit.
Finally. Susan decided that
she was ready to try the trip on
her own. Monday morning
arrived, and before she left, she
threw her arms around Mark.
her temporary bus riding com-
panion, her husband, and her
best friend. Her eyes filled with
tears of gratitude for his loyalty,
his patience, his love. She said
good-bye, and for the first time,
they went their separate ways.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday. Each day on her own
went perfectly, and Susan had
never felt better. She was doing
it! She was going to work all by
herself!
On Friday morning, Susan
took the bus to work as usual.
As she was paying for her fare
to exit the bus, the driver said,
"Boy, I sure envy you." Susan
wasn't sure if the driver was
speaking to her or not. After all,
who on earth would ever envy a
blind woman who had to strug-
gle just to find the courage to
live for the past year?
Curious, she asked the
driver, "Why do you say that
you envy me?" The driver
responded, "It must feel so
good to be taken care of and
protected like you are." Susan
had no idea what the driver
was talking about, and asked
again, "What do you mean?"
The driver answered, "You
know, every morning for the
past week, a fine looking gen-
tleman in a military uniform
has been standing across the
corner watching you when you
get off the bus. He makes sure
you cross the street safely and
he watches you until you enter
your office building. Then he
blows you a kiss, gives you a lit-
tle salute and walks away. You
are one lucky lady."
Tears of happiness poured
down Susan's cheeks. For,
although she couldn't physically
see him, she had always felt
Mark's presence. She was
lucky, so lucky, for he had given
her a gift more powerful than
sight, a gift she didn't need to
see to believe the gift of love
that can bring light where there
had been darkness.
I share this with you to
express to you the fact that God
cares for you even more than
this husband cared for his wife.
God is always watching you,
and he is concerned about what
is going on in your life.
"Are not two sparrows sold
for a cent? And vet not one of
them will fall to the ground
apart from your Father. But
the very hairs of your head are
all numbered. So do not fear;
you are more valuable than
many sparrows." (Matt 10:29-
31) The Lord has promised he
will always be there for His
children. "I will never desert
you. nor will I ever forsake
vou." so that we confidently
say. "the Lord is my helper. I
will not be afraid. What will
man do to me?" (Hleb 13:5-6)

those that altend aI church sen ice on .a regular basis

Is there in\ w\onde1r that not mnll ate a attracted to
the Christian life?
InstIead of consumer Christianit\. \\here \\e
become partakers of the entertainment \alue of the
church sen ice. \e should heed the call of Paul in
Romans 13:11. "This is all the more urgent. for \ou
kno\\ h\ late it is: time is running out. Wake up. for
our salvation is nearer now than when \we first
believed."
The church started out as a small band of rag-tag
misfit fishermen. They had conviction in their hearts
and a purpose in their walk.
Their passion, fueled by grace through Jesus
Christ, made the Church into a massive force to be
reckoned with. Satan has sang a lullaby and the
Church has not resisted the call to slumber.
It saddens me when I scan the obituaries and won-
der if that person had a relationship with Jesus
before they died.
Everyday our highways are littered with bodies of
young people that had no knowledge of a Savior that
would keep them from an eternity of flames.
Wake up church souls are depending on waking
this sleeping giant to return to the days of the church
that no longer slumbers.
There will be no humorous excuses that will
quench the judgment of Christ when we stand before
Him.

The Goodness of God

Do youever realize that when you awake each morning, God
has given you another wonderful day to rejoice and celebrate
the gift of life? Sometimes when I get up in the morning,
I am thinking about all of
the things that I have to get
done, and I forget about
God and how good He has
been to me and my loved
ones. I realize that there are
S, / millions of people in the
World with poor health who
S- can't even get out of bed,
but perhaps it is just human
Snature that we often don't
appreciate something until
we have lost it. We should
always try to be mindful of
how good God has been
to us, and especially be grateful for His gentleness. We all
have an occasional tendency to be overly concerned about
inconsequential things instead of focusing on what is really
important in our lives. Psalm 31:19 tells us,"How wonderful are
the good things you keep for those who honor you! Everyone
knows how good you are, how securely you protect those who'
trust you."
For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures
forever, and His faithfulness to all generations.
% R.S.V. Psalm 100:5

Students By the Numbers j


(MS) As graduation
approaches, it's interesting
to engage in an education
retrospective and answer
the question, "What's
been going on with stu-
dents these days?" Check
out these stats.
*90 percent of high
school seniors expect to
attend college (National
Center for Education Sta-
tistics, 2002).
*75 percent of high
school graduates go on to
secondary education with-
in two years of receiving
their diplomas. (The Edu-


cation Trust-West, 2002;
The High School Diplo-
ma: Making It More Than
an Empty Promise).
*A growing number of
college students are over
the age of 25.
'Women outnumber
men on college campuses,
and more women obtain
college degrees than men.
*Demographic projec-
tions show that next year
or the year after, the annu-
al number of high school
graduates in the United
States will peak at about
2.9 million after a 15-year


climb, say reports pub-
lished in The New York
Times.
*The number of white
high school graduates will
go down nationally in the
future, and the number of
African-American gradu-
ates will remain relatively
steady.
The number of Hispan-
ic and Asian-American
graduates, however, will
increase sharply, accord-
ing to projections by the
Western Interstate Com-
mission for Higher Educa-
tion.


Ways of paying for college


(MS) Finding a way to
pay for college has become
the proverbial elephant in
the room for many par-
ents, something they know
they'll need to figure out
eventually but something
they would prefer to ig-
nore or put off for fear of
what they might find.
Recent projections from
The College Board@ don't
figure to erase any of those
sleepless nights. either. In
the 2006/07 academic \ ear.
tuitions at both private
and public institutions in-
creased by an average of 6
percent (give or take a few
decimal points) and citing
national 10-\ear averages
for tuition increases. The
College Board expects
those increases to remain
stead\.
Here are some ides on
financing college:
'Pass the buck. Grants
and scholarships are the
holy grail of tuition help.
That's because neither
need to be paid back. How-
ever. putting all \our eggs
in the scholarship basket
is a risk\ venture, be it an
athletic or academic schol-
arship.
Of all financial aid
given out each year. less


than 50 percent is grants
or scholarships. It's not
uncommon for even the
best students or athletes
to receive partial schol-
arships, so chances are
strong you'll need to come
up with some. if not the
majority of your child's
tuition.
*Borrow. borrow, bor-
row. Some parents are
skeptical of taking out

loans to pay for college
or putting their children in
a position to have a large
sum to pay back once they
graduate. College loans
aren't necessarily the alba-
tross many think they are.
Repayment schedules can
be laid out in ways simi-
lar to a mortgage, where a
lump sum is boTrrowed up
front and then paid back
over a long period.

ANDREW
HOLLINGER
Syndicated Columnist
Dear Graduating High
School Seniors,
I also just graduated.
From college. And there
are a few things I wish I'd
known before I walked
into class on that first day.
I'm almost sure that the
orientation counselors
tried to caution us of the
usual college pitfalls-but
I was too excited to be
on campus to actually pay
attention to anybody.
That was probably
mistake number one. Pay
attention when people talk
at orientation or on the
campus tour. The more
information you have, the
easier your transition to
university life will be.
The biggest problem
for new college students
is no more parents. It's
great and devastating at
the same time. You will
officially be a young adult.
And you can stay out as
late as you want; see what
happens at Whataburger
at 2 a.m. Does Domino's
really deliver after mid-
night? You'll find out.
Unfortunately that also
means that Mom isn't
around to make sure you
get up in the morning and
go to school. Your room-
mate doesn't care if you


get up on time or not,
and neither do your pro-
fessors. Do not skip class.
Some professors take
attendance, and you can
fail just by missing too
many classes. Other pro-
fessors leave attendance
up to you, but require you
to be responsible for all
homework, notes, texts,
and lectures. You're pay-
ing for it, you might as
well go.
College is about aca-
demics, so make sure you
pay attention to your stud-
ies. You don't need to shut
yourself away, though. Go
to a football game, attend
guest lectures, audition
for a play. Your college
spends your fees on fund-
ing interesting things for
you to do and see. Don't
miss out on opportunities
like that. Universities want
to churn out well-rounded
individuals. Make sure to
have new experiences.
One caveat, how-
ever. You'll meet people
who have done a lot and
have plenty of advice to
offer-people who have
more life-experience than
you. Their experiences
will range from the mun-
dane to the wild to the
absolutely horrifying. You
might be tempted to look
up to these individuals.
Don't mistake experi-

Helping new high school grads understand what lies ahead


(MS) With graduation
on the horizon, many high
school seniors are anx-
iously anticipating their
exodus from Mom and
Dad's house to the less re-
strictive dorms of their col-
leges of choice. Visions of
parties, late school nights
spent hanging out with
friends, and no Mom and
Dad to check in on them
,populate the dreams of
many a high school senior
as graduation draws closer
and closer.
Beginning college can
also prove difficult in a
number of ways if soon-
to-be freshmen aren't
prepared for what may
lie ahead. Parents and
college-bound kids alike
should discuss the follow-
ing topics before parting
ways this fall.

Finances
It seems that no mat-
ter how much money kids
head off to college with,
it's never enough. This is
especially true of entering
freshmen, who have more
than likely never faced liv-
ing on a budget before. If
a student will not be work-
ing and their parents will
be sending them money
during the semester, it's
best to work out a pay-
ment schedule (once per
semester, once per month,
bi-monthly, etc.) and stick
to it. Parents should avoid
the temptation of bailing
kids out if they've spent
their allotted money too
quickly, just like students
should avoid the tempta-

hv '


tion of spending the mon-
ey too fast
Parents should also
discuss credit cards with
their children before the
kids head off to school.
College campuses are no-
torious breeding grounds
for credit card solicita-
tion. Kids who don't fully
understand the concept of
credit can, and often do,
find themselves in deep
financial trouble because
of credit cards. If a student
has his or her own cell
phone (and who doesn't
these days?), let your son
or daughter begin paying
for it in the months before
he leaves for college. This
should help get him or her
acclimated to paying bills,
and the importance of pay-
ing them on time, before
heading off to school.

Academics
Understandably, most
students start off struggling
in the academic depart-
ment. This often has noth-
ing to do with the course
load. Instead, it's typically
the product of students be-
ing overwhelmed by their
newfound freedom, result-
ing in studies sliding down
their priority list.
Incoming freshmen
should recognize that,
while struggling to adapt
to a new course load and
new environment is to be
expected, it's not an excuse
for a prolonged academic
struggle. The point of go-
ing to college is an edu-
cation first and foremost.

students, recommends de-
veloping a diligent and
consistent system of study
habits to avoid digging an
early academic hole. This
can involve study groups,
brief study periods after
each class to make sure
you understand all materi-
als, or a number of things
that might work for each
individual. But the main
thing is to be consistent
in your study approach,
.as once you get it down,
you'll be more efficient
and able to enjoy more of
that enticing free time.

Social Life
While education is
the most important thing
about college, developing
socially is important as
well. For some students,
overfocusing on academ-
ics can make college a
difficult period in their
life. Particularly for enter-
ing freshmen, developing
friendships is an important
step in adapting to college.
Students should embrace
the chance to meet new
people, many of whom
might be from different
parts of the country or
even the world, which can
be an educational process
in and of itself.
While social life should
never take precedence
over academics, balancing
work and play is some-
thing students will have to

do the rest of their lives,
and part of college is pre-
paring them to do just that.
Parents should make stu-
dents aware that academ-
ics are important, but that
developing as a human
being and not just as a stu-
dent is important as well.
For more tips on pre-
paring for college, visit
www.gocollege.com.

Internships
Internships can be in-
strumental to students
who are not sure if a
certain career path is
right for them. By par-
ticipating in the daily
activities essential to
this type of employ-
ment (and not just the
busy work of faxing,
e-mailing and running
errands that many in-
terns must endure), they
can clearly see if this is
something that can pro-
vide a fulfilling career.
Many times, through
internships, students
learn they are not happy
with an occupation and
take steps to find other
courses that offer a new
direction. Without the
benefit of the internship,
graduates may have got-
ten stuck in a career that
doesn't challenge or in-
terest them much.
1. Research the
school's internship pol-


2,


E^


icy. Internships may be
restricted to either ju-
nior or senior year with
a limit set on the num-
ber of internship credits
allowed.
2. Most schools have
a listing of pre-ap-
proved companies and
organizations that can
host interns. Participat-
ing companies often
must meet a list of re-
quirements and prove
that they will comply
with school regulations.
However, if there is a
place you would like to
intern that is not on the
list, see if you can facil-


itate the approval of this
company.
3. The internship lo-
cation and internship
advisor at the business
become your classroom
and professor away
from campus. The same
behavior and work eth-
ic you apply to your
schoolwork should be
carried through when
interning. Also remem-
ber that you are a repre-
sentative of the school,
so poor behavior could
negatively impact the
company's willingness
to host interns in the fu-
ture.

to increase their extracur-
ricular profile this coming
school year should consid-
er the following points.
*Consider your poten-
tial field of study: Many
high schools offer clubs
designed to allow kids the
opportunity to explore po-
tential college majors. For
example, students think-
ing about a career in law
might consider joining
their high school's debate
club.
Oftentimes, such clubs
have competitions that re-
ward top debaters. These
awards will look good on a
school application when a
student expresses interest
in a pre-law program. Stu-
dents considering a major
in international business
could benefit from joining
a foreign language club.
*Extracurriculars ex-
tend beyond the high
school campus: Volunteer
opportunities abound for
high school kids looking
to do their part. Such op-


portunities are often more
frequent and readily avail-
able to students who live
in cities, but those in the
suburbs have opportuni-
ties as well.
Again, interests can
dictate just where you vol-
unteer. Someone interest-
ed in a career in veterinary
medicine might volunteer
at the local animal shel-
ter. Students interested in
healthcare should inquire
about volunteer opportu-
nities at the local hospital,
which can double as a great
place to network and learn
about the host of fields
within the medical profes-
sion. Simply because the
high school doesn't offer a
given opportunity doesn't
mean it's not available
within your town or city.
*Consider a part-time
job: With the costs of a
college education escalat-
ing so rapidly, many col-
lege students eventually
need to find a job to offset
some of the costs.

Texting is the newest driving risk
(MS) As technology continues to advance, the op-
portunities for distractive driving also increase.
In the past attention to the road may have waned
when drivers changed radio stations or cassette tapes.
Things improved with the advent of multiple-CD chang-
ers, satellite radio, and steering-wheel mounted controls.
Then mobile phones became headline makers as law-en-
forcement officials and insurance companies pondered
over the increased risk of accidents presented by talking
while driving. Today talking on a cell phone without a
hands-free device could land you with a traffic ticket.
But there is another technological attention-seeker
that is causing trouble on the roadways. Text-messag-
ing, or "texting," is the latest form of communication
causing drivers to take their eyes off of the road, with
consequences.
A new poll conducted in August by Harris Interactive
found that 91 percent of respondents feel that texting
while driving is dangerous along the lines of driving
while intoxicated more than 57 percent of Americans
admit to doing it.
The age group doing the most texting while driving
is the 18 to 34 demographic, making up 64 percent of
texters, according to research.
Stoplights and stop signs present opportunities to
check messages and reply. However, many others are
using PDAs and cell phones for texting while in the
throes of moving traffic.
Washington was the first state to pass a ban on tex-
ting while driving. California, New York and Florida are
considering similar legislation to deter texting and ac-
cidents.

Celebrate smart during graduation


Graduation is a time
for celebration for Florida
teens and parents. Much
time is spent on planning
events.
The Department of
Highway Safety and Mo-
tor Vehicles also wants to
encourage students and
parents to develop a driv-
ing plan while teens are
taking part in these events
that will keep teens safe-
as they travel on Florida
roads. Some things par-
ents and students should
remember:
*Don't drink and drive.
*Don't get in a vehicle
with a driver who has been
drinking.
*Make sure everyone in
the vehicle is buckled up
- it's the law!
*Keep mobile phones
on and easily accessible.
so parents and guardians
can get a hold of you.
*If you do get into a sit-
uation where you need as-
sistance, call your parents
or another trusted adult.
*Limit the number of


passengers in the vehicle
to eliminate distractions.
*Do not text message
while driving- pull over
and park if you have to
text.
"Statistics show that
teen crashes increase dur-
ing graduation celebra-
tions and that many of
these crashes could have
been avoided by practic-
ing safe driving habits.
"'The Department is
committed to working with
students, parents. school
administrations and law
enforcement agencies to
make sure all students can
celebrate and stay safe on
our roads during this im-
portant time in their young
lives." said Executive Di-
rector Electra Bustle.
"Teens should under-
stand that Florida law en-
forcement, including the
Florida Highway- Patrol.
has zero tolerance for peo-
ple who drive under the
influence.
"Drivers under the age
of 21 with a blood alco-


hol level of .02 percent
or more will have their
license suspended for six
months," said Director of
the Florida Highway Pa-
trol Col. John Czernis.
"Parents should be
aware that teens are more
likely to get alcohol from
their own homes than any
other source and should
pay special attention to
how they store their alco-
holic beverages to avoid


the potential of an arrest
or driver license suspen-
sion for their teens."
The Department wants
to see all students cel-
ebrating their prom and
graduation to do so with
safe choices in mind.
More helpful informa-
tion on teen drivers and
safety information can
be found on the Depart-
ment's website at www.

Saying goodbye to your high school graduate


The last dance, last
pep rally, and last study
hall ... Senior year in high
school is a long series of
farewells, most of them
highly emotional. As un-
settling as it may be to
leave their 13-year careers
as students, seniors' most
wrenching good-byes are
usually their good-byes
to friends. If they're leav-
ing home for college or
the workplace, they know
that they can always come
home to reconnect with
family. But those treasured
friends who shared their
lives and knew them best:
they might never see them
again. And although they
swear to each other that
they will stay in touch, the
possibility that this is a fi-
nal farewell is almost too
much to bear.
Because of this unbear-
able notion of terminal
separation, many seniors'
last summer before leav-
ing home is consumed by
an urgent need to spend as
much time as possible with
their friends. It's a sum-
mer of endless parties and


little time at home. A time
for hanging out with and
hanging onto their friends.
Time spent in anxious
recognition of what and
whom they are leaving,
while being totally unsure
of what truly lies ahead.
Parents should not feel
neglected, rejected or
shunned by their seniors'
spending so much of their
free time with friends. In-
stead of making your kids
feel guilty about not be-
ing with you or breaking
curfews (strict curfews are
difficult to maintain dur-
ing the summer of good-
byes), tell them that you
know how tough it is to say
goodbye to their friends.
Invite their friends for
dinner. Host a couple of
parties for them and their
friends. Share how you
felt during this emotional
summer, when you were
in their shoes.
Even though their out-
ward focus is on savoring
every last moment with
friends, your children
know all too well that they
are also leaving home and


leaving you. The life that
they have shared with you
is changing forever. They
may even provoke argu-
ments with you, give you
more attitude and lip in
an unconscious attempt
to make it easier to leave
you. It's easier for seniors
to say to one another, "My
family's driving me cra-
zy. I can't wait to leave."
Than to tearfully admit, "I
don't know how I'm going
to leave them."
In the midst of your
seniors' frenetic, friends-
focused summer, make a
strong effort to arrange
times for them to say fam-
ily good-byes. Your de-
parting children need their


one-on-one farewells with
you, their siblings and
other close family mem-
bers. Don't expect them
to acknowledge that they
need these intimate mo-
ments. They're too busy
avoiding and denying fear
and heartache. So help
them out -- drop them off
at their grandmother's and
pick them up in a couple
of hours, give them some
money and ask them to
take their younger sibling
out for ice cream. When
you arrange for them to
spend time alone with
these loved family mem-
bers, you give them a
chance to say their right
and proper good-byes.

Tips on choosing the right career path


(MS) With the world
ever-changing in nearly
every way, one area that
certainly isn't bucking that
trend is the workplace.
Technology seems to be
making daily changes to
how companies do busi-
ness. But while technol-
ogy is certainly leaving
its mark, so too is an ideo-
logical shift with respect
to work.
Whereas it was once
common for people to
choose a career path and
stick with it until it came
time to retire, more and
more of today's workers
find themselves making
at least one career change
during their lifetime.
Many more change ca-
reers several times before
settling on the one they'll
pursue until it comes time
to retire.
While change is good,
the growing trend of ca-
reer changes can be looked
at as part of a greater
problem: many of today's
workers are choosing the
wrong path at the start of
their employment journey.
That's not to say this is a
bad thing, as many people
simply don't know what
they want to do when it
comes time to enter the
workforce, and many more
still don't know several
years into their profession-
al lives. Fortunately. for
people in such a quandary.
there is advice to consider
to ensure your next career
change will take you down
the right path.
*Put yourself to the test.
Many job-hunting agen-
cies offer services that are


designed to help you find
the right career path. This
typically involves lots of
self-assessment, where
you'll take tests to see
what it is you truly want to
do with your life and what
you want out of a career.
These tests can be accurate
or useless, depending on
how honest you are with
yourself. Don't be shy to
share openly what you
want and keep an open
mind with whatever results
the tests find. And remem-
ber, if the test says you're
best suited for a certain
field but you don't agree,
you can always move on
to other methods.
*Do your homework.
Choosing the right career
path, whether you're fresh
out of college or well into
your professional life, in-
volves researching what
careers are out there and
what's best suited to your
talents and goals. Typi-
cally, such research yields
a number of fields that
match both interests and
career goals. Some of these
careers you might not even
know about, while some
could be obvious. If your
research produces a hand-
ful of careers, you've now
narrowed your search and
can begin more extensive
research.
For those who are al-
ready working,. be patient
with your research. If
you're fresh out of school
or about to graduate. con-
sider seeking advice from
a career counsellor who
might help to speed up the
process. Either way, you
probably have more time


than you think, so use it to
your advantage.
*Take your new ca-
reer for a test drive. Once
you've done your research
on your narrowed list,
consider taking a couple
of those prospective ca-
reers on a "test drive."
Rather than give your two
weeks notice and just dive
right in, try volunteering
in your prospective field
first. This will give you a
chance to see if your re-
search was right and the
career is something you're
willing to try out for the
long haul. It can also help
you eliminate making a
mistake and taking a job
you won't like.
If no volunteer work is
available, other options do
exist. For instance, enroll
in a class in the prospective
field at your local universi-
ty, or look for part-time or
freelance work to get your
feet wet. It's always good,
especially for people mak-
ing a career change as op-
posed to those just starting
out, to get a feel for a new
job before moving on from
an old one.
*Go for it. If you like
what you've seen and feel
like it's the right direc-
tion for you, then go for
it. While it will seem like
a big risk, as the current
workplace climate sug-
gests, you're certainly not
the first nor will you be
the last to make a career
change or choose a career
that may or may not be
right for you. Just make the
most of whatever choice
you make.* Put yourself
to the test.
