Three year old battles



WILMS Disease


Strong heart

keeps her

fighting

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter


When you watch three year
old Lanah Parker playing with a
bubbly expression upon her face
and a bounce in her step, you
may not be able to tell how
much pain she has endured
over the past year. She is a I
sight to behold and her
story about her strong
will to overcome her
struggles with cancer
will give you goose
bumps as well as bring
warmth to your heart. -
Her family hopes her
success story will give
others the boost of con-
fidence they need to
keep fighting and not to
lose hope should you
find yourself in similar
circumstances. "-
Something was not quite
right one day before Thanksgiv- -'
ing 2005, as Loree Parker, Lanah's
Lanah Parker enjc
mother, discovered an unusual lump Ly ns'
while giving her a bath. After taking
Lanah to the doctor, it was discov-
ered that she had Wilms disease. According to Loree, this
is a curable cancer that affects children under the age of
five. "Around 500 children are diagnosed with Wilms
every year. It has a 90% survivor rate," Loree said. Statis-
tics state that 1 out of every 300 children will develop
some type of childhood cancer before reaching age 19.


Election Day

getting near

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter

The Nov. 7 election is
only days away. The
Lafayette County Super-
visor of Elections Office
encourages everyone to
have what they need be-
fore entering their as-
signed voting precinct. If
you do not have the
proper form of identifica-
tion, such as photo ID,
you will have to use a
provisional ballot to cast
your vote.
The voting precincts
are Day Community Cen-
ter, Lafayette County Li-
brary, Airline Communi-
ty Center, Fourth District
Community Center, and

---------------


At the time she was diagnosed with the dis-
ease, Lanah was already at-stage four. Accord-
ing to the National Cancer Institute, stage four
occurs when the cancer has spread to organs
further away from the kidney, such as the
lungs.
SDuring her first surgery on Dec. 2,
2005, a large tumor was removed
from Lanah's kidney, weighing ap-
proximately 2.5 pounds. Since that
first surgery, she has had several
other operations and had to un-
dergo radiation and
chemotherapy treatments to
rid her young body of the
S. cancer.
Despite this "Mount
S t Evere'st like challenge,"
friends, family, churches,
neighbors, and others
have come forward to
help them endure this fi-
nancial burden.
e When Lanah recently
came home from the
hospital in July, she got
to do one of her favorite
things. Dale Lyons invit-
ed her to ride one of his
ponies on the Lyons'
fanmil) farm. According ,to
Loree, Lanah loves horses.
.. She also enjoys helping
her mother in the kitchen
making cookies.
As of today, Lanah is tumor
free, but not entirely out of the
ing a pony ride at the woods. According to Lanah's
tmily farm. grandmother, Cindy Pilkington,
Lanah will visit the doctor again
on Nov. 16, to have a follow-up
CT scan. According to Cindy she is trusting that God has
answered all the prayers on Lanah's behalf, and healed
her granddaughter.
Another treat for Lanah will be this Friday, Nov. 3,

and networking through
workshops, training ses-
sions, conferences and con-
ventions. But, perhaps the
greatest opportunity Alpha
Delta Kappa provides is
the opportunity to make a
difference. Around the
world, ADK members com-
bine their energies and tal-
ents to enrich their lives
and the lives of others
through thousands of
heartwarming, community-
based altruistic projects.
In the past two years
alone, Alpha Delta Kappa
members have given over
7.7 million dollars in mone-
tary gifts, over 1.9 million
dollars in scholarships and
have provided over 1.8 mil-
lion hours of volunteer ser-
vice to their communities.
Many activities and pro-
jects have been implement-
ed by chapters in Florida
during October to acquaint
communities with the pur-
poses and programs of Al-
pha Delta Kappa. The
ADK chapter of Lafayette
County is cooperating with
projects of their own.
Our local ADK chapter is
called Gamma Nu and we
have members from both


K-,*


the elementary and high
school. We meet monthly
to discuss altruistic projects
and to encourage each oth-
er as sorority sisters. To
promote reading for stu-
dents and parents we hold
the ADK Book Fair. This
project was held last month
and with great success.
Not only do we support
local educational and chari-
table projects, but we are
also committed to support
St. Jude's Children's Hospi-
tal in Memphis, Tennessee
and to the Susan G. Komen
Breast Cancer Research
Foundation in Dallas,
Texas.
October was Breast Can-
cer Awareness Month. Our
local ADK chapter held a
quilt raffle, with all pro-
ceeds going to breast can-
cer research.
Another altruistic project
that began this week at the
Elementary School is our
St. Judo's Mathathon. LES
students seek sponsors to
donate a set amount for
each math problem they
complete (for example:
$.10 for each problem com-
pleted). Please be willing
to sponsor a student or
students. If you have not
been asked to sponsor
someone, find a student
that you know and tell
them you want to sponsor
them. This is a project that
even the children can be a
part of, and we want this
to be a success for them,
too! We would like for all
sponsor donations to be
collected by November
3rd. Thank you for your
support to this worthy
cause at St. Jude's Chil-
dren's Hospital.


Rotary club has visit from


Internal Revenue Service


Linda Smith
"I understand that it is a
good idea to start any pro-
gram with something hu-
morous, but not too many
people find anything about
the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice, or taxes very amusing"
stated guest speaker Johnny
Killebrew.
Killebrew has been with
the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice for the past 12 years.
He is a tax specialist, which
according to Killebrew,
means that he is in the edu-
cational part of the IRS. He
tries to educate folks on var-
ious taxes, what is taxed,
what is not, what specific
taxes cover, etc. What he
does not do said Killebrew
is answer "why" to any of
these things. Basically be-
cause there is no answer to
those questions, other than
that is just the way it is.
For the past 7 years,
Killebrew has been respon-
sible for educating taxpay-
ers in fourteen North Flori-
da counties, including
Lafayette.
He shared a lot of inter-
esting facts about taxes and
revenue in the state of Flori-
da. According to Killebrew
the IRS employs some 2400
employees nationwide.
Killebrew said that an up-
grade in equipment, 'a uni-
fied tax system,' has al-
lowed the IRS to accomplish
much more, in less time,
with fewer employees. He
added that this equipment
was quite an expense when
originally purchased but
has well paid for itself in

just a short time. One of
the things that has allowed
for fewer personnel is that
Internet filing has become a
very popular way of filing
income taxes. Therefore it
takes less people to do the
processing involved with
the paper form of filing. He
said Internet filing has
quadrupled in the last year
or so.
He also discussed many
of the changes that have


been made dealing with
different types of taxes in
various areas. But again he
stressed that he is in the ed-
ucation department of the
IRS and not the collection
department.
Killebrew said that he is
available to answer ques-
tions, if you need a ques-
tion answered dealing with
the IRS and need a name to
go with it, he will be glad to
help in that area.

I have many fond memories of my days as a member of
Troop 615. Judge Guy M. McClain was our scoutmaster.
Troop leaders and assistant scout master were Robert Ed-
wards and Govan Ware. Of these three, only Robert Ed-
wards remains as of this writing. Guy McClain died in
1962 after many years of distinguished service as County
Judge. Govan has since passed away but I don't remember
the year. I believe Robert served as a judge in Polk County
before retiring.
Guy was elected as Judge of Lafayette County in 1940,
shortly before WWII. When the war began, he served as
the local civil defense director and also as Red Cross in-
structor in first aid. These two positions were created to
prepare the civilian population for any emergencies that
might arise as a result of us being in a war. Guy McClain
volunteered his time for this effort, which required that he
give the first aid instruction at night. As previously men-
tioned, he also served as scout mast of Troop 615 and had
the additional responsibility of Sunday School Superinten-
dent ofMayo Baptist Church and served intermittently as
secretary and treasurer.
As civil defense director it was his duty to set up an ob-
servation post to identify andieport the passing of all air
craft that entered our air space. The clock tower in the
court house provided the ideal location for this task and a
telephone was installed. Govan and Robert were the pri-

mary spotters but there IJ
may have been others. I visited
there several times and observed the procedure used when
an aircraft was spotted. A phone call was placed and a de-
scription of the plane and it's heading was given.
Enough cannot be said about Guy McClain and his un-
selfish devotion to the county that he so loved. I remember
when he was first elected as county judge just before the
outset of WWII. A get-together was held at my parents
home in support of his candidacy. Chicken Pilau, made in
a wash pot, cole slaw, and of course iced tea was the menu
for the evening (don't forget the bread and pickles) and
was served under lights strung in the yard where a large
gathering enjoyed the food and the fellowship. After that
event Guy dubbed my mother as "Sadie coleslaw Win-
burn." I believe she deserved the recognition as she always
strove to turn out delectable vittles.
Guy was recognized for his untiring devotion to his du-
ties as scout master and in 1947 was chosen to lead an as-
semblage of scouts from the "Suwannee River Council, Re-
gion 6" on an expedition to the Philmont Scout Ranch in
North Eastern New Mexico. The huge ranch was a gift by
the Phillips brothers who founded Phillips Petroleum. It
consisted of about 250 thousand acres, formerly known as
the McMillan Ranch near Cimarron, New Mexico, one
time home of frontiersman Kit Carson and was undis-
turbed to a great extent except for some evidence of placer
mines where those seeking gold had operated during an-
other era. (Placer mining is a process whereby soil from
the surrounding river or stream bank is washed into a
streambed by water pressure where it can be panned for


any gold it may
contain). The '
Phillip brothers,
in their devotion
to the Boy Scouts
and their fore-
sight into the fu-
ture needs of sustaining the ranch
also donated the Philtower build-
ing in Tulsa and the revenue gen-
erated was used by the ranch .
management to maintain and im-
prove that impressive expanse.
It was my good fortune to be O.A. Winburn, Jr.
among the number of those mak-
ing up wagon train #47. I remember others from that expe-
rience but one stands out in my mind. That would be Or-
son Smith of Bainbridge, GA. Orson's family founded a
feed mill there on the river, "Flint River Mills." Orson be-
came a prominent surgeon and I believe he later became
chief of staff at the Tallahassee Medical Center or hospital.
To give a little insight into the character of Guy McClain
I will describe some of the events that I remember concern-
ing this great man.
On this particular expedition to Philmont, one young
man from somewhere in Georgia was a late arrival and
had managed to bypass the physical which' was a requisite
for this venture because it was quite a rigorous undertak-
ing, requiring several miles of walking with back pack dai-
ly for two weeks.
Well into the first days hike or march, it was learned that
this young man would not be able to continue with his
load due to his physical constraints. Rather than be de-
layed for an undetermined period Judge McClain proceed-
ed on a plan that would allow us to continue. He contin-
ued on .ahead alone and at an accelerated pace for a few
miles where he would deposit his pack, backtrack over the
same ground and retrieve the pack of the young man who
had faltered and make the return trip. He repeated this
over and over again until the next camp was reached
which was about 20 miles. I can't imagine anyone perform-
ing such a fete. Such was the character of Guy McClain, a
vanishing breed I fear.
It was reported that during a routine stay at a hospital in
Tallahassee where tests and evaluations were carried out
on the honorable judge, after visiting with those who had
come from his home county to see him, that he returned to
his bed and upon pulling back the cover found a rat-
tlesnake there and that he died right there. This was never
widely publicized but I believe it is incontrovertible based
on the reliability of the source as told to me.

Domestic Violence Laws:

Do I need a lawyer?
Are you afraid of your partner? Do you feel safe in your
home? Does your partner ever threaten to hurt you or
your children? Does your partner ever hit you or force you
to have sex? If you answered "yes" to any of these ques-
tions, you may want to talk to a lawyer about what can be
done, legally, to protect you and help make you safe.
Your legal options:
If you are a victim of domestic violence, dating violence,
sexual violence, or repeat violence, you have the right to
ask the court for legal protection from the person who is
abusing you. This protection is called an injunction.
An injunction may (among other things):
Order that the abuser have no contact with you
Award you temporary exclusive use of the house you
both share
Prevent the abuser from entering your home, school,
or place of employment
Award you temporary custody of your minor children
Order the abuser to pay temporary support for you
and your minor children if the abuser is their parent
Order the abuser to participate in a Batterers Inter-
vention Program or other treatment/counseling program
There is no fee for filing a petition for an injunction.

Like every nei' teacher,
Conn finds herself con-
fronting various hurdles,
organization being one of
them. Regardless of the
size and depth of the
challenge, she always
:fiiids a way to overcome
it. "If I didn't make a
plan.for the day every
morning, I probably
wouldn't get much
done," Conn said.
SThere are many goals
that Conn wants to
achieve. For example,
she hopes her students
will leave her class with
:a better understanding of
agriculture and the
process of how food goes
from the field to our ta-
bles as well as how we
get the clothes we wear.,
She also wants to encour-
age them to explore the
field of agriculture and
see what doors are open


to them. "I would like my
students to come away.
from their Agriculture
class and have an appre-
ciation for the industry
and how much it does,
even if they do not want
to be involved with agri-
culture in the future,"
Conn said.
SInspiration to,teach
agriculture came from- a
close source..Conn stated
that Emily Land, and her
mother assisted her as
she labored hard to ob-
tain a Bachelor of Science
degree form the Univer-
sity of Florida in the field
of Animal Science.
Before she was hired
by the Lafayette County
School Board, Conn
worked as Veterinary
Technician for a number
of years. She also worked
and lived at the Beef
Teaching Unit caring for
cattle while she attended
UF.

Lafayette High School received a $500 grant from the
ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program to support
the school's reading programs. Fast Track Stores, with
an Exxon branded convince store locate@ on US 27 in
Mayo worked with the school officials to secure the
grant, which is one of 4,000 available to schools across
the country serviced by Exxon or Mobil stations. The
grants were made possible by funding from the Exxon-
Mobil Corporation.
"Lafayette High School works hard to make learning
interesting and fun," said Annette Howell,-Store Man-
ager for Fast Track Stores. "As an Exxon retailer, we are
proud to help young people of Lafayette County."
The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program is
designed to provide Exxon and Mobil retailers with an
opportunity to invest in the future of their communi-
ties through education. grants to neighborhood
schools. ExxonMobile believes that, as members of the
community, local retailers are best qualified to work
with local educators to help identify schools and pro-
grams most in need of support.
SFast Track Stores met stringent eligibility criteria be-
fore applying for and being awarded this grant, in-
cluding having a commitment to provide a superior
buying experience for customers.

Middle/High School principal; and Buddy Vickers, Gilchrist County School Board superintendent.


Tuesday, October 17 was
a landmark day for Lake
City Community College
(LCCC) and Gilchrist
County. Gilchrist County


School Board members,
School Board Superinten-
dent Buddy Vickers, Assis-
tant Superintendent In-
structional Services and


LCCC District Board of
Trustees Chairperson
James Surrency gathered
with. LCCC President
Charles W. Hall, LCCC


Vice President Instruction
and Student Services
Charles E. Carroll, and oth-
er college and district per-
sonnel to officially cut the
ribbon and establish the
new LCCC Gilchrist Cen-
ter.
The new center is conve-
niently located on Bell Av-
enue between Bell High
School and Bell Elementary
School and is housed in the
former Bell Full Service
Center. LCCC officials plan
to have the center open,
staffed, and operational for
classes beginning in Janu-
ary 2007. In the coming
months, as more informa-
tion and news develops
about the center, look for
updates in your hometown
newspapers.
Ronnie Smith, school
board member District 3,
said, 'the new center marks
great changes in the coun-
ty's future working with
the college to see that our
young people grow and
mature' into fine young


adults."
Carroll indicated the col-
lege eventually' anticipates
at least two to three fully
equipped classrooms in the
center. The college's vision
includes the establishment
of a distance learning class-
room that could accommo-
date 20-25 students in a
class. In addition to having
teachers present in the
classrooms, distance learn-
ing- capabilities and tech-
nology will allow students
to take classes in "real time"
taught by an instructor on
the Lake City campus and
delivered to the center by
interactive television.
Also on the planning
board is a computer lab that
.will, eventually house ap-
proximately 20 laptop com-
.puters with Internet access.
Equipping the center with
the latest teaching and
learning technology is a
high priority for LCCC.
Classes will be added on a
continuing basis after Janu-
ary 2, 2007, as the college


OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

)pens
develops the curriculum
and installs the appropriate
equipment to offer the
courses.
Carol Buck, school board
member District 5, stated
"the new center will allow
people access to a higher
education that otherwise
would not have the oppor-
tunity due to barriers such
as transportation. This is a
great way to retire from the
board knowing that people
in Gilchrist, Dixie, and Levy
counties will now have this
opportunity."
President Chuck Hall
said this is a dream of the
college's that has finally
come to fruition and that he
anticipates a long, success-
ful relationship between the
college and surrounding
counties.
Gary Rexroat, school
board member District 1,
summed up the opening of
the center by stating, "to
have a college campus in a
small district with access to
a great academic experience
for students will have a
tremendous economic im-
pact on the county." As
well, he feels that the center
will have a cultural impact
on the community and
looks forward to the estab-
lishment of a true college
campus of bricks and mor-
tar!

Homecoming Game


Hornets regular season streak reaches 20 with 7-0 win over Baldwin


The Hornets football
team would be tested by a
very strong Indian defen-
sive line that would limit
the Hornets offense to 234
yards of total offense. The
Hornets would get big
plays on the defensive side
,of the ball however to limit
the Indians to 139 total
yards paving the way to a
7-0 Hornets win to remain
perfect on the season at 9-0
and extend the regular sea-
son win streak to 20.
The Hornets would set
the tone early defensively
with Kurt Skelly, Quinn
Frier and Jonathon Ander-,
son making'the stop on the
initial kickoff return at the
Baldwin 25. Kris Pearson
would tackle the Baldwin
runningback for a loss,
which was followed with.
help from Aaron Gresham
and Darren Powe to force a
fumble for a loss. On third
down, the Indians looked
to have completed a pass
for first d6wn yardage, but
a strong timely hit by
Thomas Byrd forced an in
completion and force a
short punt.

The story of the game here. Kyle Pearson and Powe make the stop with a Skelly and Gresham ready to close in. The defense ac-
cepted every challenge in this game.and looked impressive.


Reid would account for four huge first downs to keep the Hornets drives alive.


..

After the rains came these were the only two to stick around
to show their team they were there for them rain or shine. They
just kept cheering.


Hornets junior quarter-
back Chad Hempstead
would. hook up with
Sophomore wide receiver
Jamaal Reid.for 18 yards to
the Baldwin 11 before key
short yardage runs by Eric
McIntyre would give the
Hornets a 7-0 advantage at
the 6:19 mark of the first
quarter.
Another great special
teams by play by Quinn
Frier assisted by Alberto
Rosalio would force Bald-
win to start deep at their
own nine yard line. The In-
dians would put a nice dri-
ve together into Mayo terri-
tory, but a key sack by Kyle
Pearson followed by a Gre-
sham tackle on a fake punt
ended the threat.
A Reid catch would gain
first down yardage on a
key third down play, which

Homecoming Roundup


(ellto, idl ,y sportsworiter)
\. \ow, what a week in
M!ayo for homecoming.
There was a ton of ac-
tivities going on during
the week, but I did not
really get going until
Thursday night. '
The first stop of the
night would be at the
Edward Perry recre-
ation field to catch some
Hornet bowl football.
This was supposed to
be a position round for-
mat, but the Falcons
and Hurricanes had fin-
ished tied for the run-
nerup spot. Changes
were made to permit
the two to battle in the
final game to break that
tie. It was supposed to
be a quarter of football,
but there would still be
extra time needed after
a couple of goal line
stances by the Hurri-
canes. The game would
finally come to a close
in the second overtime
period with Steven Ray
intercepting a pass at
his own 10 yard line
and racing down the
sideline to give the Fal-
cons a thrilling run-
nerup finish in a great
game by both teams.
The first game of the
night would pit the un-
defeated Titans against


the fourth place Gators,
The Titans would not only-
remain unbeaten, but also
kept their scoreless streak.
alive not allowing a single
point this year.
After the awards cere-
mony, it was on to Dale'
Walker Field to catch a lit-
tle powder puff football in
what was billed to be flag
football. I should have
brought my note pad to
count the tackles as the ju-
niors and seniors would
compete hard against each
other. The juniors had
just tied the game at 14

.couple of aerials from Na-

The photo shot of homecoming festivities has to go to the ju-
nior class cheerleaders. Great lob ladies! This group was in-
timidating enough to help the junior class edge the seniors in
overtime in a game of what was supposed to be flag football.
There were some great tackles made in this one.

We also witnessed further
dominance by the junior
class in the spirit depart-
ment. As usual, it came
down to the juniors and
eighth graders battling it
out for the spirif award.
Despite the efforts of a
very jealous senior group
to pull the student body
towards the eighth graders
" to help beat the juniors,
the junior class would still
pull out the win.
There was some great
skits that included the
cheerleaders impression of

The pep rally was high-

'drum core that the Hor-

Mayo travels to West
Gadsen
The Hornets will travel
to West Gadsen tomorrow
night in pursuit of their
second consecutive unde-
feated season.
Emotionally, this will not
be an easy game for the
Hornets. The playoffs are
set for the first round; and
Mayo knows their first
round opponent is going to
be the defending state
champion, Port St Joe.
There is not a Hornet that
has not had the score of 3-2
in the back of their minds
ever since that fatal night in
the regional championship
game last year.,
West Gadsen is coming
off a crushing loss to Port
St Joe 34-7 in a game that
saw Gadsen playing for the
district title. They were in
that position due to an ear-
lier win over the district 1
champion and the second
ranked team in the state,
Liberty County.
Gadsen will bring a
physically large team to the
gridiron that has been spec-
tacular on the defensive
side of the ball this year
while the secondary pos-
sesses a ton of speed that
has forced their share of
turnovers which has been
depended on. Gadsen has
struggled on the offensive
side of the ball this year,
but does possess the speed
in key positions that can
make big plays.
This game will be used as
a bowl game for the district
1 powerhouse.' Gadsen
feels they belong with the
elite and they are playing
the top ranked team in the

Players of the Week

Offensive: Nathan Broughton has been asked to play both sides of the ball due
to the injuries suffered; by the Hornets this year. He has more than accepted the
challenge, and has certainly rose to the occasion not only in this game against a
huge Baldwin line, but has also excelled over the past few weeks in big games.

Defensive: Thomas Byrd broke up two key third down passes separating the
ball from the receivers, and added three brutal tackles stopping big gainers. It
has been noted that Byrd has not been beaten all year at deep safety turning in
solid play and seems to be getting more aggressive with each game.

Students from LCCC business program take factory tour


Studying manufacturing processes in a
classroom is one way of learning. Lake
City Community College business stu-


dents went a step further and toured
Homes of Merit plants in Lake City to
witness the theory put into practice. Dur-


ing the plant tour, students were sur-
prised to learn that the huge manufac-
tured homes are physically moved from
work station to work station as the home


is built from the floor up.
Following the plant inspection, students
were treated to tours of finished model-
homes, both manufactured and modular.

precautions to avoid becom-
ing a victim of a financial
scam:
Do an assessment of your
financial means and invest-
ment objectii es.
Understand that all in\est-


ments involve risk: generally,
the higher the return, the
higher the risk.
Ask the sales agent (bro-
ker) about commissions, fees,
penalties, sales charges and
any other costs.
Ask as many questions as
you want and take notes.
Walk away if they avoid your
questions.
S Take your time.
High-pressure sales tactics
\vill ruis l ou into an unm ise
decision A sound in estment


will be just as good tomorrow
or next week.
Document all transac-
tions.
Carefully read and under-
stand documents before you
sign them.
Ignore "inside informa-
tion," "hot tips" and "ru-
mors."
Hang up on "cold calls"
from strangers.
Beware of "bonus" inter-
est rates as they are usually
hmited ui duration and ha\e


strings attached.
Be cautious of sales pitch-
es that claim you will "re-
coup" all penalties with the
higher returns of.a new poli-
cy.
*Remember: if it sounds
too good to be true, it proba-
bly is.

By Pam Campbell
If you can't see it, is it still there? Do we have to see
something to know it is there? Someone who is blind.
still knows there are things around them trees, animals,
sky, people, everything we see. They cannot see them,
but they know they are there. They can feel them, sense
them, hear them, people tell them about them, they can
picture it in their minds. Think of the many places in the
world we read about or hear about on the news where
we have not been. We have not seen them, but we prob-
ably believe they are there. None of us have been to the
moon, yet we see it every night. We believe it is there.
We cannot see the wind, but we know it is there. We can
feel it blow our hair, we can see it blowing the trees.
Though we cannot see the wind, it is still there.
I wonder if you cannot see something, do you
still believe it is there? Believing God for an an-
sw6r to prayer is like that. You have to ask God
for what you need. Then you have to have faith to
believe God will answer your prayer. You cannot
see the answer or how in the world the answer
will come, but if you have faith, you know God
will answer. You have to believe without seeing
that God will answer, just as He promises in His
word. In the Bible, we read these words: "Do not
be anxiousabout anything, but in everything, by
prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present
your requests to God." Philippians 4:5-7. If we
know the Lord, we know we can pray and God
will answer.
It is the same with believing in God. Most of us
have not actually seen God, yet we believe He ex-
ists. We feel His presence. We know He is with us
always, we talk to Him, and He answers. "Whom
having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now
ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy
unspeakable and full of glory." IPeter 1:8 We see
His love and His hand in all of creation. We know
He is real. We love Him. We believe His word.
We believe He answers prayer because He says
He does, and we have seen Him answer prayer
other times in our lives and in other peoples' lives.
Many times my family and I sit by a beautiful
waterfall where we have a permanent campsite in
the Smoky Mountains, a place we can come and:
go as God allows. We all enjoy just watching the
water or reading book aftpr book, times of prayer,
times of drawing, writing; crafting. talking with
others, cooking out. But most of all, we enjoy just
relaxing and listening to the sounds of the river
and waterfall. One night my daughter and I were
sitting as we have so many times, watching the
waterfall as the sun began to set, and it began to
get dark. We continued to sit there, watching not
only the waterfall but several little otters scampering in,
the water below. I said to her, "I wish it would not get
dark because then we can't see the waterfall." My
daughter looked at me and said, "Yes mama, but you
can still hear it."
I have thought about that so often since then. She was
so right. We sat there for quite some time after darkness,
had fallen and listened. We could not see that waterfall,
but we could hear it just as we had before night came.
The Lord spoke to me that night and continues to re-


Is it there?
mind me what He tell us in His'word. "So then faith
cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
Romans 10:17.
Just as sure as that waterfall was still there, even in
the dark, God will surely answer our prayers. You know,
when we went to bed that night, we could still hear the
waterfall, such a soothing, relaxing sound, and sure
enough the sun came up the next day. When we looked
out the window, there was the glorious waterfall for all
to see! When we have faith to believe God for an an-
swer to prayer, the answer will come, and we will know,
we will see, we will be able to share the good news.that
God has answered prayer that others may be able to see.
God will always answer our prayers. We must have.
faith and believe. Sometimes the answers might not be


the answers we are looking for or the answers we want
them to be, but God knows the best for each of our
lives, and He will answer. "And all things, whatsoever
ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."
Matthew:22 When you have something happening in.
your life where you really need God's help. you need a
real answer from heaven, do youi worry first and then
pray, or do you remember to pray and leave the worry at
the feet of Jesus? If you learn to build up your faith
when things in your life are going smoothly, by hearing

the word of God, then when things in your life get
bumpy, you will have the needed faith to trust the Lord
to take care of the situation and lean on Him, and forget
the worry. Worry will not help, but Jesus will! Jesus
speaks to us about worry in the Bible in Matthew 6:27-
28: "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to
his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how
the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin."
We do not need to worry, we must learn to have faith.
How is it that we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the
word of God.
Many times we may not be where we are hearing the
word of the Lord. Maybe we are sick and can't get to
church, or are in a place where the word of the Lord is
not being preached so we can hear it. In order to have
faith, we must hear the word of the Lord.
I have found I need to hear the word of the Lord
Sto build my faith daily, not just at church. Recent-
Sly, instead of just reading the Bible to myself and
Studying it, I have begun reading the word aloud,
|ir just the Lord and I. The wordsays our faith comes
from hearing the word, so if you read it aloud, you
are really hearing it, literally! I find myself under-
standing more, and hearing more of what the Lord
S is saying to me. Whether we read the word aloud
or silently, or have someone else read it to us, or
are hearing the word preached, the important thing
is to pay attention to what God is saying in His
word. He speaks to each of us through His word.
When we are praying for'a specific need, we
may not know how in the world the answerwill
come, it may look impossible to us, but remember,
*^ with God, nothing is impossible. We just need to
have that simple childlike faith and believe. We
can't see the answer, we can't see faith, but we
know if we hear the word of God, we receive the
faith we need. We know if the answer to our
prayer or prayers is there, we just can't see it, just
like we could not see the waterfall after dark. But,
that did not mean it was not there. We could hear
it, and that told us that yes, it was still there. We
hear the word of God, we have faith and though.
S we annot see the answer, we know it is there. "So
then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
I word of God." Romans 10:16-18. We.don't get to
sit by the waterfall as often as we would like, but
when we do, it is a joy, and a privilege. Like most
of you, when I am not in the mountains by the wa-
terfall, I must find somewhere else to pray, some-
where else to get alone with the Lord, to rest, to
Srelax...
S We all need to do this, and we can. It can be as
simple as in our own back.or frqnt yard, or in a
room alone with the TV off, or one of my favorite
places is outside in a field looking up into the beautiful
star filled sky with a sliver of a moon shining. What an
awesome place to talk to the creator of the universe,
God our father.
Take time each new day as you awaken to thank God
for another day, and find the time to read His word so
tyou will build up your faith. Remember, faith comes
from hearing the word of God. Next time you pray, re-
member to have faith, and even though you don't see
the answer, always know the answer is there.

- Can you


see


By Pam Campbell
If you can't see it, is it still there? Do
we have to see something to know it is
there? A person who is blind still knows
there are things around them trees, ani-
mals, sky, people, everything we see. They
cannot see them, but they know they are
there. They can feel them, sense them,
hear them, people tell them about them.
They can picture it in their minds.
Think of the all the places in the world
we read about, we have not seen them but
we believe they are there. None of us have
been to the moon, yet we see it every
night, we believe it is there. I wonder if
you can not see something, do you still
believe it is there?


Believing God for an answer to prayer
is like that. You have to ask God for what
you need and then you have to have faith
to believe God will answer your prayer.
You have to believe without seeing that
God will answer.
It is the same with believing in God.
Most of us have not seen God, yet we be-
lieve He is real. We love Him..We believe
His word. We believe He answers prayer
because He says He does.
Many times my family and I sit by a
beautiful waterfall.in the Smoky Moun-
tains. One night my daughter and I were
sitting watching the waterfall and it began
to get dark. I said to her, "I wish it would
not get dark because then we can't see the


waterfall." My daughter, looked at me and
said, "Yes, mama, but you can still hear
it." She was right, we could not see that.
waterfall, but we could hear it just as we
had before it got dark. The Lord reminded
me whaHe tells us in His word "So then,
faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by
the word of God." Romans 10:17 Just as
sure as that waterfall was still there even
in the dark, God will surely answer our
prayers. God will always answer our
prayers. We must have faith and believe.
Sometimes God may answer our prayers
in a different way than we expect, but He
will always answer! God knows the best
for each of our lives. He tells us in the
Bible how to pray "And all things, what-


soever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye
shall receive." Matthew:22. How is it that
we get faith? Faith comes by hearing the
word of God. "
The Bible says our faith comes from
hearing the word. If you can read it out
loud or have someone read it to you, then
.you will really be hearing Hs word! He
talks to each of us through His word, even
kids!
We can't see the answer, we can't see
faith, but we know that if we hear the
word of God, we receive the faith we
need.
Next time you pray, have faith, and
even though you don't see the answer, al-
ways know that the answer will be there.

Be Merciful, 0 Lord

For we

have sinned
The Bible tells us we
all have sinned and have
come short of the glory
of God.
Anld. although we
should try to refrain from
sinning, it is somewhat
consoling to kriow that.
none of us are perfect. If
we are repentant for our
sins and have asked God
for His forgiveness, we
shouldn't be too harsh on o n '
ourselves nor d\\ ell on
our past tra nsgressions.
Sin is a rejection of
God's love; however, our
Heavenly Father has giv-
en us a means to rid our-
selves of sin, providing
that-we try to refrain from sinning in the future. In the Bible, Psalm 51 is a prayer
of repentance that asks the Lord to be merciful to us as sinners; and in order for us
to be repentant, we have to admit to ourselves that we have sinned. We often try to
justify our bad behavior in order to avoid some corrective action or punishment.
However, we should keep in mind that justifying our inappropriate actions does not
necessarily nullify them. Most all of the great people in the Bible committed some
wrongdoing, and still, 'God was able to use them. Perhaps God will use us for His
good, even though we have sinned.

To the Lord, our God belong

mercy and forgiveness, though

hve rebelled against Him.

Understanding Insulin Resistance Syndrome


As the country's obesity epidemic continues to claim more and more lives,
many people are aware of the numerous negative consequences of being '
overweight. The foremost disease that comes to mind with respect to obesity is
diabetes, an illness that now features a roster of more than 18 million Americans..
While obesity may lead to diabetes, it is certainly not the lone cause thereof. In
fact, a combination of medical conditions known as insulin resistance syndrome
can greatly increase a person's chances of developing type 2 diabetes, the most
common form of the disease.
Obesity coupled with high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels and/or,
heart disease can cause insulin resistance syndrome, which acts as a. catalyst of
sorts in the development of diabetes.
Defining Insulin Resistance Syndrome
In a healthy person's body, insulin plays an integral role in maintaining that
health. Food is absorbed into the bloodstream in the form of sugars, most notably
glucose. As glucose in the bloodstream increases, a signal is then sent to the
pancreas, which in turn increases the secretion of a hormone called insulin. As
insulin attaches to cells, glucose is removed from the bloodstream and used as a
valuable source of energy.
When someone is insulin-resistant, the cells that'normally would respond to the
insulin released by the pancreas have a diminished ability to make that response.
Therefore, the pancreas releases more insulin.to compensate, in the hopes that
more insulin will mean a better chance of reducing the sugars such as glucose in,
the bloodstream., However, as this process goes on, people who are insulin-
resistant develop high sugar levels in the blood, which often leads to diabetes.
What Causes Insulin Resistance Syndrome?
*There are a number of factors, including:
besity. Obesity, particularly abdominal obesity, is perhaps the greatest factor
in the development of insulin resistance syndrome. The more obese a person is,
the less responsive they are to insulin, which can prove to be the start of a very
vicious downward spiral. As the role of
Ophthalmology insulin is linked directly to removing
glucose from the blood to use as a

addition, the more obese a person gets, the harder it will be to lose that weight if.
and when they decide to do so. If they allow their bodies to become resistant to
insulin, they will suffer greatly from a lack of energy when they attempt to'shed
the weight.
: High blood pressure. High blood pressure has long been linked to diabetes and,
when combined with other niedical conditions, can increase the body's resistance
to insulin. In general, the higher a person's blood pressure is, the more likely they
are to be insulin- resistant. In fact, possible evidence as to the impact of high blood
pressure on insulin resistance is seen in American Diabetes Association reports
that state at least 40 percent of people with diabetes have' high blood pressure.
SAbnormal cholesterol levels. Insulin-resistant people typically have low levels
of HDL, which is commonly referred to as "good cholesterol." Few might be
aware that certain fats areiactually good for the body. HDL cholesterol contains
those good fats, meaning the higher a person's HDL, the better. However, high
LDL ("bad cholesterol"), which often is the case for those resistant to insulin,
increases a person's chance of heart attack or stroke. ,
How is Insulin Resistance Syndrome Diagnosed and Treated?
Oftentimes, a diagnosis rests on a doctor's suspicion. Since there is no standard
'test for determining insulin resistance, a doctor's (and even a patient's) suspicion
or intuitioii often play an integral role in diagnosis. What patients must remember
is to be as honest and knowledgeable as possible. For instance, family history can
detenuine a person's likelihood of being insulin- resistant. If a parent or sibling
has type'2 diabetes, or suffers from hypertension or cardiovascular disease, then
the patient could have a greater susceptibility to insulin resistance syndrome.
In addition, other possible indicators do exist. For example, an apple-shaped
'body, where there is more fat around the waist than around the hips, could indicate
a person is resistant to insulin. Age can also play a role, as those over 40 can be
more susceptible.
Treatment for insulin resistance syndrome is most often a variety of medications.
Doctors can prescribe medications that make a person's body more- sensitive to
insulin. Also; doctors typically prescribe drugs to lower cholesterol or others
Designed to treat the conditions that often lead to insulin resistance syndrome:
Perhaps the best treatment, however, is pretreatment by preventing the onset of
the conditions in the first place. Exercising, maintaining a healthy weight and
enjoying a healthy diet are the best ways to avoid both insulin resistance syndrome
and diabetes.
