Sylvan Learning


Center to serve


Lafayette County

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter

Tom Lashley, Sylvan
Learning Center (SLC)
director, gave a presen-
tation on Wednesday,
Feb. 22, to Rotarians
about the construction
of a new SLC in Live
Oak. According to Lash-
ley, construction should
be completed in approx-
imately five to six .
weeks.
The project began
during spring of last
year. The construction
site is located behind
the new Lafavette State


lom Lashley, director, talks
about the construction of the
new Sylvan Learning Center in
Live Oak. This center will serve
the counties of Taylor,

Suwannee, Union, Columbia,
and Bradford. Photo: Ira Mikell


Bank (LSB)', according to Lashley. LSB is providing the
financing for the project.
SLC is a tutoring franchise that has been in the busi-
ness of helping students succeed academically for many
years. 'Sl\van is the largest supplemental educational
provider in the United States," Lashley said. SLC was
founded in Oregon in the 1970s, named after the town ,
of Sylvan. The owner sold his business as a franchise in
the 1980s.
According to Lashley, the learning center purchased a
geographical area of eight counties: Taylor, Lafayette,
Madison, Hamilton, Suwannee, Union, Columbia, and
Bradford. "It was the last franchise area left in the state
except for one small one down belowv Melbourne,"
Lashley said. Lashley also stated their goal is to have
more than one center in this geographical region.
A variety of programs will be offered at SLC, accord-
ing to Lashley. Examples include Beginning Reading
(grades K-2), Academic Reading (grades 3-8), Advanced
Reading Skills (grades 9-12), and Academic Writing
which focuses on grammar, spelling, essay develop-
ment, and paragraph structure.
Math programs will also be offered. Examples are
Math Essentials (grades K-8), Pre-algebra (grades 8-12),
Algebra 1 A(grades 9-12), Geometry, Algebra 2,
Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, and Integrated Math.

Choices and consequences


Share your
faith
i? Jl


The Psalmist said, they
(the earth and heavens) shall
perish, but thou shalt en-
dure...thy years shall have
no end (Psalm 102:25-27).
Where will you spend all
that time? You can't spend it
on this earth because it
plainly says you will contin-
ue after the environment
you inhabit no longer exists.
II Peter 3:10: says, ...the day
of the Lord will come as a
thief in the night in the
which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and
the elements shall melt with
fervent heat, the earth also
and the works that are there-
in shall be burned up.
Though the heavens, in
the sense of our atmosphere
and the starry dome above
the earth, will disappear
there is an eternal home
awaiting you. You are at the
'Y' in the road. You must
make a. CHOICE! Will you
go this way, or that? It is
nothing short of how awe-
some God is in that He made
a way for humans to go to
Heaven! When you look at
the Ten Commandments,
how do you measure up?
The function of the Ten
Commandments is to reveal
how far short you come of
being worthy of God's con-


sideration (Galatians 3:21-
25). Since man was inca-
pable of earning his salva-
tion because he is a sinner
(one who has violated the
Ten Commandments) God
sent his Son to pay man's sin
debt (Romans 4:8). If you
have, accepted God's Son
(simply believed what the
Bible says about Him) you
have eternal life (I John 5:11-
13).
Which way have you tak-
en? Have you trusted Christ
as your personal Savior or
have you rejected Him (Rev-
elation 20:15).' ALL CHOIC-
:ES HAVE CQNSE-
QUENCES.

Pfc Josh D. Duis, son of
Donny & Penny Duis and
grandson of James & Marion
Townsend in the Hatch
Bend area completed basic
training at Marine Corps Re-
cruit Depot, Parris Island,
SC on October 14, 2005. He
successfully completed 12
weeks of training designed
to challenge new Marine re-
cruits both physically and
mentally.
Josh and his fellow re-
cruits began their training
each day at 5 a.m., by run-
ning three miles and per-
forming calisthenics. In ad-
dition to the physical condi-
tioning program, Josh spent
numerous hours in class-
room and field assignments,
which included learning
first aid, uniform regula-
tions, combat water sur-
vival, marksmanship, hand
to hand combat and assorted
weapons training. They per-
formed close order drill anid
operated as a small infantry
unit during field training.
Josh also received instruc-
tions on the Marine Corps'
core values --- honor,
courage and commitment,
and what the words mean in
guiding personal and pro-
fessional conduct. Josh and
fellow recruits ended tlhe
training phase with the Cru-
cible, a 54 hour team effort
and problem solving evolu-
tion.
After graduation from
Parris Island, Josh was sta-
tioned at Camp Geiger in
North Carolina for 3 weeks,


Pfc Josh D. Duis


for 14 days of Marine com-
bat training.
After graduation from
Camp Geiger, Josh went to
'29 Palms, California where
he went through 3 months
of schooling for Tactical
Network Specialist. This is
schooling to learn how to set
up computers out in the
field so that the troops will
have up to date information
about what is happening
around them.
Josh graduated from 29
Palms on February 16. After
being home for a very short
visit he left Sunday, Febru-
ary 26, to head to Camp
Lejeune, North Carolina,
where he will be stationed
until he is deployed. Cur-
rently his date for deploy-
ment is August of 2007,
when he is scheduled to go
to Iraq.
The family asks that
everyone keep Josh in their
prayers. -. 'We are very
proud of him and he is do-
ing good and learning a lot
in the Marine Corp. He will
continue his education
while he is a Marine."

Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida)
criticized the Administra-
tion's 2007 budget for the
proposed cuts to our na-
tion's farmers. The Presi-
dent's budget asks for $75.4
billion in mandatory agri-
culture spending, down
from $81.8 billion in fiscal
year 2006, and $16.3 billion
in total discretionary
spending, $717.3 million
below last year.
The Administration's
budget proposal reduces
funding for farm subsidies
by 5 percent over the next
decade while also reducing
the cap on farm payments
by 31 percent.
"Americans deserves a
fiscally responsible budget
that does not shortchange
our agricultural communi-
ty, and this budget is not
it," .said Congressman
Boyd. "As a farmer myself,
I understand the critical
role the, federal govern-
ment plays by giving agri-
cultural producers a real
safety net. I will work with
my colleagues in Congress
to fight any attempt to cut
payments to our farmers
and to reject the Adminis-
tration's proposals."
The President's budget
also calls for a 20 percent
reduction in agricultural
conservation programs, in-
cluding a 50 percent cut in
watershed rehabilitation
funding. :If these reduc-
tions were enacted by Con-'
gress the dairy and poultry
project in the .Suwannee
River basin and other fed-
erally-funded Suwannee
River clean-up, efforts
would not exist.
"By getting rid of projects\
that directly help our farm-
ers, the Administration's
budget shows no commit-
ment to the needs of our
agricultural community,"

Valentine's Banquet at Hatch Bend Baptist Church
Submitted by Ruth Vogel
Cupid came early to Hatch Bend Baptist Church in the
form of their annual St. Valentine's Banquet on Saturday,
February 11, at 6:30 pm. The approximately 100 guests,
many dressed for the occasion in red, pink, and bur-
gundy attire, arrived to a beautifully decorated room
with tiny white lights entwined in tulle as well as red .9.
and white candles in goblets on white and burgundy
tablecloths. The candles were surrounded by romantic._2
rose petals, Valentine confetti, and petite heart shaped
candies. Red hearts, red roses, and greenery also deco-
rated the windows and doors.
Pastor George Dunn welcomed guests to the gala af-
fair, followed by the blessing. The delicious meal con-
sisted of garden salad, pork tenderloin, scalloped pota-
toes, lima beans, and rolls. The "decadent desserts',"
were red velvet and lemon cakes baked by Mrs. Judy
Robarts and banana pudding cooked by Mrs. Dot Hill.
Guests were in for a special treat as they were gra-
ciously served by the following youth: Jack Lindsey,
Meghan Lindsey, Alisha Owen, Kyle Shepherd, Trent
Shepherd, Chad Trespalacios, and Tara Trespalacios.
Attendees were also in for another treat as talented
singers and musicians from the Hatch Bend Apostolic
Church performed lovely Valenfine songs, gospel music,
and some "hand clapping pickin-n-a-grinning" banjo
playing. How"did they know that "I'll Fly Away" is one
of Hatch Bend Baptist's favorite songs!
A special thanks goes to the following ladies for such a
marvelous dinner and "divine" decor. Social Chairman
Mrs. Dot Hill and her committee members: Mrs. Elaine .
Dunn, Mrs. Carolyn Lindsey, and Mrs. Judy Robarts.
These ladies did an outstanding job in decorating for
the occasion: Mrs. Elaine Dunn, Mrs. Arlene Huffstuttler,
Mrs. Dot Hill, Mrs. Carolyn Lindsey, and Mrs. Debbie

Lots of hard work and effort went into getting this
Valentines Banquet together and everyone who helped
in any way deserves a very special "thank you.. .

Sylvan Center, you have to
either have or have had, a
valid state teaching certifi-

The teaching job is part-

LHS holds annual football banquet


since Gresham only knows full speed ahead. The 110% award went to Michael Wimberley. W imberley is as dedicated and works as
a a ay y b o a a all M a a a a a f l f

The award winners for the 2005 football campaign were well deserved. (left to right) The rookie of the year selection was not a
hard one as Chad Hempstead went above what was expected at the quarterback position in his sophomore year. The best defensive
lineman award went to Darren Powe. Look for a dominating 2006 year from this youngster. The best linebacker award not only for
this team, but on the state level was Gresham. There is goingto be some tough decisions for this young man after the 2006 cam-
paign. But until then, Hornet fans are going to be getting a real treat on the grid-iron. The practice field is not going to be a delight
since Gresham only knows full speed ahead. The 110% award went to Michael Wimberley. Wimberley is as dedicated,and works as
hard as anybody both on the gridiron and basketball courts. More than 'one quarterback has ran for their lives from his pursuit in


2005 causing many interceptions and sacks.


The most valuable award of the night was the Golden Helmet
award which is presented'to the best overall athlete for their
dedication and commitment to the team. The 2005 winner of
this award went to Thomas Parker. After grueling spring prac-
tices with everybody else ready to hit the showers, Parker
would be seen pushing, himself on running more 100 yard
sprints. The extra effort showed up this year as Parker was able
to grab key TD receptions, and was especially fun to watch on
special-teams. The first round regional tournament game saw
Parker score the first touchdown of the game on a spectacular
60 yard run, and had several key returns on special teams to
keep the Hornets in great field position that resulted in the Hor-
nets advancing to the regional championship game thanks to
his outstanding efforts.

Tthe banquet once again had the voice of the
Hornets, Andy Hart, to open the banquet af-
ter the invocation by Reverend Hodge. Both
were very honored to once again to be al-
lowed the privilegeto be with the coaches
and players........
Coach Joey Pearson handed out presentations honoring his
2005 regional runnerups, the Lafayette High School varsity
football team. Pearson acknowledged that this team had a re-
newd commitment this year after a tough 5-5 season a year
ago by attending the University of Florida camp in the sum-
mer. He also praised the strong leadership of his team which
was relied on heavily in pulling tough fourth quarter wins
against key district opposition in Hilliard in Hawthorne.
Defensively, this team only gave up 79 points, and praised
the poise of his young sophomore quarterback Chad Hemp-
stead who stepped in to replace the injured senior leader,
Kalem Jackson in the spring. Hempstead only threw 5 inter-
ceptions this year while throwing 10 TD passes, and provided
leadership beyond his years which was key in the Hornet's
success. As a result, the offense was able to score 358 points
with' a very balanced attack.
Although it was a difficult ending with a 3-2 loss to eventu-
al state champion Port St Joe, it did show that the Hornets
have a lot of confidence on their chances for competing not
only for the district title in 2006, but also going that next level
securing the regional title and possibly playing for a state title
in 2006.



S'










(left to right) The best running back for the Hornets over the past
few years was Morgan Rutherford. Rutherford was normally the
redzone man for the Hornets, but in 2005, there was many long
burst of over 40 yards that saw the big man stun many of the op-
position by getting to the endzone pretty quickly. Rutherford just
simply loved playing the game of football and there certainly was
not a more personable young man on the sideline. He was also
noted on several key blocking routines that opened the door for
many big plays for the Hornets in 2005. The Best wide receiver
award went to the talented freshman Jamaal Reid. An unfortunate
injury in the first round of the playoffs took Reid off the field, but
not only his receiving skills, but also his defensive secondary play
is certainly a valuable asset to the Hornets football success. Look
out for this youngster on special teams in 2006.


The best defensive backs
for the Hornets in 2005
was Zane Walker and Ryan
Slayton. Does anybody re-
member the huge first
down run on tie fake punt
against Hilliard by Slayton.
A huge play that just set
the stage for an incredible
season. Several key inter-
ceptions in every game this
past season certainly shut
S down more than one oppo-
nents passing game thanks
to the efforts of these two
youngsters with outstand-
ing play in the secondary.
Opponents were never able
to strike with the big play
against the Hornets sec-
/. ondary.

The lone freshman on the Hor-
nets team was Jamaal Reid.
Reid was a rare selection to the
all-state and all-area teams as a
freshman. Three more years of
Reid on the gridiron has to excite
. a lot of folks.


Varsity and JV Cheerleaders


L6
The Hornets got a great job on the sidelines by the cheerleaders on the way to playing for the regional championship. There were
several outstanding first year members of the squad that included Tiffany Pulliam,. Lacey Moore, Ashley Bell, Ashton-Kara-Shaw,
Stacie Strickland, Anna Lee and Senica Wright(alternate)


A special pre-
sentation was
made by the
squad to their
sponsors Sonya
Koon for the
varsity and Con-
nie Pearson with
the junior varsity
squads. The
ladies did a su-
per job with the
pep rally's each
Friday and on
the field under
,the supervision
of the sponsors.
They also
thanked the
quarterback club
and the parents,
along with the
players for mak-
ing the football
season one to re-
member.


--.

The members chose their award winners. The most dedicated selection was Alisha Owen. The most im-
proved selection was Tiffany Pulliam. The most spirited award was presented to Lena Brock. The Best all
around cheerleader award was presented to Ashley Prevatt. There was two special presentations made by
the sponsors for the most dependable which went to Brittney Lee and Asia Kendrick. A very special presen-
tation was the Saline Pearson Award which a very deserving Alisha Owen was presented.

Mrs. Collins, Spirituaist
Heater, Readr, Advisor
All who are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman who knows
help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false.
She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is
just a servant of the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you
have any problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.

Detecting kidney disease a difficult task


According to the National Kidney
Foundation, 20 million Americans suffer from
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). That's roughly
one in nine adults in America, making kidney
disease one of the most common ailments in
the country. Fortunately, CKD does not
necessarily have to lead to kidney (renal)
failure, a debilitating condition that oftentimes
requires dialysis as a means of treatment.
Early detection of kidney problems is a good
way to avoid the potential for kidney failure
down the road.
SA recent study published in the American
Journal of Kidney Diseases showed that
almost half of all people with an advanced
form of kidney disease did not know they had
weak or failing kidneys. Forty-five percent of
people suffering from Stage 4 kidney disease,
which is just a step away from renal failure,
had never been told they had weak or failing
kidneys. Add to that number the fact that
nearly two-thirds of people with kidney
disease who had visited 'a doctor within the
previous 12 months of the study had their
kidney problems go undiagnosed. These
numbers suggest that people should monitor
their kidneys more closely and ensure their
doctors check them for kidney ailments even if
they feel like nothing is wrong.
If you suspect you might be having kidney
problems, there are indicators that can help
you determine if you're suffering from renal
failure, be it acute renal failure (ARF) or
chronic renal failure (CRF). ARF is the type of
kidney failure that is most likely to occur after
complicated surgery or trauma. ARF can. also
be the result of blockage to the blood vessels
leading to your kidneys or if urine flow is being
blocked. Toxins in your system, which can
come from overuse of pain medications or
street drugs such as crack cocaine and
heroin, can also cause ARF
CRF is the result of a number of processes
that lead to permanent loss of kidney function.
Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two
main causes of CRF, but the disease can also
be the result of urinary tract obstruction and
kidney abnormalities. ,

signs or symptoms. This plays a large role in
why so many cases of kidney disease go
undiagnosed. Still, symptoms of ARF include
fluid retention, internal bleeding and even
confusion. Also, seizures can be a telltale sign
of ARF. If a loved one has recently slipped into
a coma, that could also be the result of ARF
People with CRF may not experience any
symptoms at all until their kidney function has
been reduced to less than 20 percent.
Symptoms of high blood pressure, unexplained
weight loss and anemia, where red blood cell
count is reduced, are signs of CRF, and
indicate a need to visit a doctor promptly.
Vomiting, fatigue, a loss of appetite and a
shortness of breath are also symptoms of CRF
It's important to remember as well that
detecting kidney failure cannot be done with a
run-of-ttle-mill trip to the physician. It requires
laboratory testing, most often through the use
of a creatinine level test. When a kidney is
functioning as it should, it will remove
creatinine, a normal molecule found in your
muscles, from your blood and expel it. An
increase of serum creatinine in the blood is
oftentimes a strong and early indicator of
kidney failure.

you can do to. help your own or a loved one's
battle, visit the National Kidney Foundation

You can be happy!


By Pam Campbell
Most people are happy when things are going the way
they want them to, but if something happens they do not
like, the happiness may disappear. Everyone has the abil-
ity to be happy. It is a choice you can make every day re-
gardless of your circumstances. I realize you may have
just lost a loved one or you may be suffering with some
kind of a sickness or injury, things may not be going the
way you desire right now. I know that in this world there
are problems and things that try to steal our happiness.
However, we can still be happy. We see in Proverbs 16:20
that God shows us the key to being happy. "He who
gives heed to the word will prosper, and happy is he
who trusts in the LORD." If we really learn to trust in the
Lord and His word with everything in our life, we will
be happy. Each day you live is a gift from God, what you
do with that gift is up to you. You have the ability to
choose to trust the Lord, to be cheerful and happy, to be
thankful for what and who you do have in your life, or
you can choose to turn your back on the Lord and His
happiness and decide to be miserable. The choice is up to
you each day. When you wake up in the morning, you
can thank God you are alive and put forth every effort to
be happy, to have a positive attitude, and not a negative
one, to trust in the Lord to fill you with His happiness,
His joy every day you live. Psalms 146:5 "Happy is he
that hath the God of Jacob for His help, whose hope is in
the LORD his God." Is your hope and happiness found
in the Lord?
Having just celebrated my 50th birthday, I received a
long distance phone call from someone who has been a
friend since we met when I was 13. She remembered I
was having a birthday and wanted to talk. We talked
about when we first met, the fun we used to have riding
our bikes, playing at each others houses, going to the
mall, baking cookies and cakes, riding the school bus to-'
gether, so many different memories. As we talked, I was
remembering other things about this friend, how she was
always there for me, how she went out of her way to
help everyone, especially her mentally challenged broth-
er, how special a friend she was as we were growing up
and still is all these years later. I remembered how she
used to spend the night at our house, and we would talk
for hours about our hopes and dreams for our futures.
iWe both had similar dreams; we both wanted to marry a:
wonderful husband and have children and live in the
Country. We thought the ideal life would be lots of land
with kids and many animals.,
When I was 15, my whole world became obsessed
with acting. I was overjoyed to win the role of Juliet in
the class play Romeo and Juliet. Though my friend was
not in this play, we both were really into acting, and
sometimes it was almost more real than our lives. The
week before the play, I went to a "play" or "illustrated
sermon" called "Heaven's Gates and Hell's Flames" with
a girl at the bus stop that had been.bugging meto go to
church with her for months. That night I got saved, and
my life was forever changed in a' very dramatic way! I
did not feel I wanted to portray the character Juliet, so I
resigned from the play and gave the part to the under-
study. I knew God had much better things in store for
my lie. This friend and I were very close. Most of my
friends turned their backs on me because they did not
like the new person Ihad become, and many of them
took the path I would have been on, the path of destruc-
tion. Some of them ended up on drugs that year, some of
them died, but thank God, my close friend found Jesus,
too.
We continued talking about how great'four lives
would be. The night I got saved, I met my future hus-

band, though we would not know that for
quite some time. God chose to save me, to put
me in the church where my future husband
was very active and preparing for the min-
istry. My friend started going to another
church and dating a guy she thought was a
Christian from school. I was dating Ken and
both my friend and I were falling in love! I
followed Ken to Bible College, my friend'
worked for her dad, Ken and I were married
in December, and my friend married a year
later. We both thought that our hopes and
dreams were coming true!
She was the one with the news of a first
child, the one with the first house, but not the
one with the happiest home. God continued
to bless Ken and I as we ministered for Him,
and after seven years of marriage and a mis-
carriage, blessed us with a miracle baby, our
daughter Jennifer. My friend had two more
children, and after her last one was born, suf- .
fered a stroke, she prayed hard, worked hard,
and made it back, and cared for her baby. Her
husband decided he did not want her for his "
wife anymore because, one of her arms did
not work completely right. Yes, he really did
leave her and the three children.
She was still determined to make a happy
home for her children, and kept on going to
church. She met a nice person who fell in love
with her and her children. A few years ago,
they purchased land in North Georgia, and
she finally had her dream home in the coun-
try! They have been married for 20 years
when he came home recently and told her
they were no longer married, and he was get-
ting a divorce. She is now living in a relative's
bedroom. She has no money until the divorce s
is final, her brother is helping her, but she is so alone. t
Her oldest child lives in another state, and her youngest
has a child and is away in college. Her middle son died a
just last year at the age of 23 from too high of a dose of a l
prescription drug prescribed for back injuries from play- g
ing football. She has in the last few years lost both of her :, e
parents as well. She is unable to workbec.ause of prob- a
lems from the stroke over 20 years ago, yet she does do v
everything she can to help anyone she can. n
I look' at my life as I turn 50 and I see that yes, God ,v
has truly blessed me with the hopes and dreams that I a
talked of with my friend so long ago. My friend still c
loves the Lord, she is still faithful in church, but she does -v
not have the life she dreamed of, her hopes and dreams y
seem shattered. I know that somehow, God will help her, "
and bring about happiness in her life once again, but for ii
now, I will remember my friend in prayer.
I will also remember how God.has blessed me. You C
see, over the last 31 years-that my husband and I have 1
been married, there have been many, many times I have n
been at death's door, so many weeks and months of sick- n
ness, hospitals and doctors. There was a miscarriage, our I
miracle baby Jennifer was born dead and after many y
more trials and miracles, God brought her home to us. v
We buried two precious sons. I continued to have more a
medical problems, and then in 1998 we almost lost Jen-
nifer again. Since then we have had years were we all 1
seem healthy, and some that are not. What I am trying to a
convey to you is this, God blessed me with a husband v
who has stayed with me, unlike my friend's husband t(
who walked out when she had a stroke, Ken loves me, he' o
loves Jennifer, he is committed till death do us part, and b

Aunt Pams KIDS CORNER -You can be happy kis!


By Aunt Pam
. Did you know you can choose to be
happy? I know when things are going
the way you want them that you are
probably happy. Are you happy when
\ou don't get your way? Sometimes
your way may not be the best for you.
We live in a world where things some-
times go wrong, sometimes we get sick
or hurt, or someone we know gets sick
or maybe even dies. Sometimes things
at school might not be good, or maybe
we don't have something that our
friend have and that makes us mad. It
might be that someone is not being nice
to us and that makes us sad. Yes, there
are things that are not perfect in this
world, but we have a God who wants to
make us happy. We see in the Bible in
Proverbs 16:20 that God shows us the
key to being happy. "He who gives
heed to the word will prosper, and hap-
py is he w\ho trusts in the LORD." That
means if w\e really trust in the Lord and
pay attention to His word, the Bible we
Will be happy! The choice is up to you
each day. When you wake up in the

good attitude, and not a bad one, to
trust in the Lord to fill you with His

times we need to look at someone else's

are so very blessed!
You see life may not always be per-
fect. Lot's of things can go wrong, but
we all need to learn to take each and
everyday we live and determine to be
thankful for all we do have and not
complain about what we don't have.
We need to be thankful for our families,
our friends our homes, for.our lives!
God wants to answer your prayers. He
wants to fill you with His joy.He really
wants you to be happy! Remember,
there is always someone who is worse
off than you, determine to be happy
and ask God to fill you with Hs joy and
He will!
God tells us inHis word to choose
to be happy. lThess:5:16 says "Have joy
at all times." Yes, we can be happy at


This was my blessed gift, the Heavenly Fa-
ther gave.


It keepsmepin.-a state of.mimd, loving '. ,.*". .
Christ more and i ore. 'Gorplucke the' rose of heaven, and sent
Him to the earth,


To have the Gospel running through my
heart all the day long,
Keeps my eyes on Jesus, as my soul sings
grateful songs.
Many songs of Calvary's price, how He
paid the debt I owed.
For a worthless, begging sinner, to a rugged
cross He'd go.

He'd hang on the hill of death, to ransom a
sinner such as I.
My Sa,ior drew His last breath, and just
like man, He died..

On the third day He arose in Victory, the
only conqueror of the grave.


That all who would believe, would have a
saving birth.
I sit in tears of happiness, to know Christ
died for me.
As He did it for the Father, and for every
eye to see.

The shouts and songs of Glory help this
weary pilgrim trod,
On the pathway to Heaven, until I see the
face of God.

Just another verse, on the radio I heard.
Reminding me of Jesus, and the Truth of
His unfailing Word.
Thank You Lord
Kathy Wilson
Many Thanks to WGSG 89.5


all times! I hope you kids will do what
Aunt Pam plans to do this month and

If you have lost a pet or found
one, the humane society will help
you find your pet. Call us at 850-971-
9904 or toll-free at 866-236-7812.
Leave a message if we are closed,
your call will be returned. Remember
to always call your local animal
control or shelters if you have a lost
or found animal.

They really appreciate donations;
they couldn't operate without them.
Donations are the heart and soul of
its thrift shop income. Please
consider bringing them donations of
clothes, household goods, furniture
and toys. They ask that all donations
be in good condition; otherwise, they
cannot sell them. Thank you!

Volunteers are wanted and needed
four hours a week on the day of your
choice. Call to learn more. People
are always needed to hold, pet, love
and walk the homeless animals at
the shelter, so if you can't adopt you
can always come help in many other
ways.

Newspapers and aluminum cans
recycled: They have a recycle
newspaper bin at 305 Pinewood
Drive, Live Oak, just west of
Johnson's Appliance/Radio Shack.
They also collect aluminum cans to
recycle, just bring them to the
shelter. All the money goes to help
the homeless animals.

Reminder: Do not leave pets in
vehicles for any length of time due to
the heat and humidity.

NOTE:
Visit their booth at the Suwannee
'County Fair again this year. Stop by
March 31-April 8' and say hello to the
animals and the volunteers who look
forward to seeing everyone.
