Stormy weather could
not deter a large crowd of
approximately 800 to 900
farmers, their families, and
friends from enjoying an
evening of fellowship and
entertainment at Dwight
Stansel's farm located on
CR 49 several miles south-
east of Live Oak. The
event was the seventh an-
nual CARES Recognition
Dinner which commenced
at 5:30 p.m., on Thursday,
June 28, and ended several
hours later.
The attendants were
guests from the counties of
Lafayette, Suwannee,
Madison, Gilchrist, Jeffer-
son, Leon, Hamilton, and
other surrounding farming
communities. Everyone
enjoyed a home cooked
meal consisting of steak,
potatoes, rolls, dessert,
sweet tea, and other tasty
delicacies, They also ate
corn on the cob, boiled
peanuts, and watermelon.
Also in attendance
were several guest speak-

On June 1, tropical
storm Barry ushered in
the 2007 Atlantic hurri-
cane season. As it crept at
a snail's pace over Florida,
several inches of soaking,
rain were dumped on
nearly every acre of the
state, especially upon ar-
eas that were affected by


jd ? drought-like
dy? conditions and
wildfires. Al-
though Barry provided
much needed rain across
the state, including our
area, hurricane experts
did not expect it to reach
hurricane status before
reaching the Florida gulf
coast.
Donnie Land, Lafayette
County Emergency Man-
agement Operations Di-
rector, continues to urge
everyone to begin their
hurricane preparation


now. According to Land,

ricane or tropical storm

Michael A. Guido
A tramp approached a
man of well-to-do appear-
ance and asked for charity.
Without a word, the man
put his hand in his pocket,
and the tramp said, "May
the blessings of the Lord
follow you."
But the man only pulled
out 'his handkerchief and
kept on walking. Where-
upon the tramp yelled,
"And never catch up with


you.
But the blessings of the
Lord will catch up with you
if you care and share.
- Charity gives itself rich.
Covetousness hoards itself
poor.
Our Lord said, "If you
give, you will get! Your gift
will return to you in full
and overflowing measure,
pressed down, shaken to-
gether to make room for
more and running over."

A man said, "When I first
married, my wife often
sang, 'Oh how I miss you
tonight.'
"She doesn't sing it
now?" asked a friends.
"No," he answered, "her
aim has improved."
It seems that there was
too much shoot and not
enough salute, or too much
shout and not enough
clout, or too much shove
and not enough love.
"Husbands," says the'
Bible, "love your wives,
even as Christ loved the
church, and gave Himself
for ,it."
Real love will bleed in or-
der to bless, sacrifice in or-


der to serve. It will n

Is your love real?

Ida Williams was kind of a special little
lady and even into later years
helped my mother with
thanksgiving dinner as a A iA


large crowd would show up for the spe-
cial kind of food that was served at our
house on that occasion. Even into old age,
Ida was there, along with my mother in
her old age and things went well until one
day while she was there, Ida was called to
her eternal home. She died doing what
she enjoyed, helping Miss Sadie.
I expect I have created a controversy a
time or two when I would take time to
talk to a black friend after a hand shake.
Once in the Jiffy store several years ago I
ran into the son of an old friend. It was
one of the Jones boys, son of Willie whom
I had known since childhood. Willie and
his brother who we called son, lived with
their family at the turpentine still at Ten

a good catch or something to that effect.
He made some nice comment about me
also and then we went on our way. A
pleasant experience.
A year or so before my mother passed
away she wanted to visit some of those
old friends and so I drove her over and
found Mamie Willis home. Mama could-
n't speak very well due to a stroke but
these two held hands for a moment and
exchanged a big smile and after we had
spent a little time there we moved on and
they both seemed satisfied. t

Ifeel the abstinence
program is great for the
children. It gives them a
better outlook on how and
why they should remain
abstinent. As a parent I work
many hours on my job and
admit I do not give my son
the time and information he
really needs. I am so proud
when my son informs me of
the things he has learned
and applied to his life. I
know trustworthy people are
helping me and he knows
when I am not there he ha i
someone he can trust to t, c
him information that I
sometimes do not know.
Hattie Reid


My feelings about the
Abstinence Program are l' m
glad someone cares enough
about our children to teach
them about abstaining. I
wish there would have been
a program when I was
growing up.
Tara Edwards


I really like the Abstinence
Program. It helps parents t,:.
become aware of the type:
of pressure the kids
are facing today. There aie
many things to learn as a
parent of a pre-teen.
Sampson Edwards






I think this is a very good
program. I only wish thai
we had this kind of
program when I was
growing up. Kids need to
know the facts of life and
what God expects from u
We as adults need to take j
stand and take every
advantage of these kinds of
programs that can only
better our Youth and help
them live long and
productive lives. Not only
do they help the Youth but
they also enlighten and
enrich us as adults.
Sylvia Reid


I believe Abstinence will work if
we continue to work with it.
Abstinence is a much needed
program to teach effective
methods of preventing STDs and
teenage pregnancy. Communities.
schools and faith based
organizations need to collaborate
with parents to help educate our
youths. There is a lot of
promiscuous behavior occurring
and abstinent programs will help
identify these areas.
Lee Woods


I think that the Abstinence
program is a wonderful ministry
that has been a blessing to the
children. I pray for the pimgramn
to continue in our county. I have
seen some wonderful changes in,
some of the youths. May God
keep on blessing us by giving us
educators to teach us physically
and spiritually. Thank God for all
he is doing in our lives, so that
we can be a blessing to others.
Patricia Henderson


I feel the abstinence program is
very helpful and needed for-our'
young people in this society
today. Young men and women are
having premarital sex and are
exposed to STDs and unwed
pregnancies. I am a parent and a
grandparent; I am appreciative of
all the support and teaching on
Abstinence to help my children
and grandchildren to maintain
themselves and to have respect
for themselves as well as others.
Betty Jackson


Thank God for the Abstinence
Program. Our kids are being
taught to wait until marriage
before engaging in sex. I feel that
more of our kids will graduate
from High School and go on to
reach their goal. Kids will be
proud of themselves for taking a
stand to remain abstinent until
marriage.

Club Valor & Virtue Abstinence



Program Gets An A+ From Parents



The Alms of Bethel Community Development, Inc. encourages

"A.T.M." (Abstinence Till Marriage) in the Club Valor & Virtue

Abstinence program and parents seem to agree.

Since February 2006, the abstinence program for ages 9-18 year

old youth has been a strong component of the sponsored youth

activities. Paid for by a grant from the Florida State Department

of Health, the need for abstinence education is evidence as we note

that the incidence rates in Lafayette County for HIV/Aids, STDs,

and teen births between 2001 and 2004 were higher than the State

average. (Ref...Lafayette County Community Survey) Abstinence

education is a vital key to ending these destructive trends.

Watch for more ads to come in upcoming issues in July and August.


The Abstinence Program
has been very educational
for the children of Mayo. As
parents we commend and
strongly encourage Alms of
Bethel to continue the
Abstinence Program.
Carolyn Rodgers
Anglia Rodgers


Abstinence can work. As
parents we want our children to
be taught abstinence in order for
them to have a healthier
lifestyle.
Shatara Blake


I believe the abstinence
program has had a positive
effect on our youth. It teaches
them how to deal with peer
pressure and to be proud they
are who they are.
Alzada Jenkins


I believe a program on
Abstinence is very important. I
wish I would have had someone
to teach me at a young age. It is
important for children to hear
the Naked Truth. "No sex is
better than no life!"
Erica Sorrell


I am writing to express my
gratitude for the Abstinence
program at Bethel of Mayo
Church. This program is
vital for our young people to
live a life that is safe from
alcohol, drug addiction and
sexually transmitted
diseases. Our children need
to have a chance:to succeed
with their education and
dreams. The abstinence
message must be shared as
an ultimate goal for
children. The message
works and.is backed by the
Word of God. I am in favor
of this program continuing
for the future leaders of this
community..
M. Bryant


The Abstinence program
had provided an
opportunity for our kids to
,hear the truth. Television,
magazines,, peers and
others have been sending
erroneous messages to our
youth which has hindered
them from making
informed choices. I believe
the abstinent message has
counteracted these
erroneous messages and
has given our children the
opportunity to remain
abstinent or do a 180
degree turn and get on the
right track and stay on the
right track until marriage. I
also feel the abstinent
program has negated other
anti social behaviors and
negative behaviors. Our
youth has heard the Naked
Truth- Abstinence is the
only 100% effective
method to avoid STDs and
pregnancy!
Odessa Woods


I think the Abstinence program
is a good thing. It helps children
to be responsible in making the
right decision in life. Our world
will become a better place to
live in,

Medicine cabinet high


An annual study by the National In-
stitute on Drug Abuse conducted at the
end of 2006 indicated that while the
number of teens drinking alcohol and
using illegal drugs declined over the
last year, the number who are getting
high on common medicine cabinet prod-
ucts and prescription drugs has in-
creased. More teens are passing on the
neighborhood drug pushers and looking
in their home medicine cabinets instead.
Commonly abused drugs include
ADHD medications such as Ritalin and
over-the-counter cough and cold medi-
cines that contain ingredients responsi-
ble for hallucinations and feelings of eu-
phoria if taken in high enough doses.
Enterprising teens even share charts and
recipes that tell others how much of a
drug is needed to produce the desired
high based on the users' height and
weight.
What's in these medicines that
makes them dangerous?
One may have noticed that manycom-
mon cold medications have been moved
behind the pharmacy counter or have
been reformulated as of late. That is
largely due to the content of the decon-
gestant pseudoephedrine in many of
these products. Pseudoephedrine is an
effective nasal decongestant but it can
also be used to make methampheta-
mine. As a public health precaution,
many states have mandated that prod-
ucts containing pseudoephedrine be
moved behind the pharmacy counter
and purchases are restricted by age and
quantity. Other drug manufacturers
who recognize the public's reluctance to
go to the counter for cold medication
have reformulated products with.substi-
tute phenylephrine, or PE. Some argue
that the reformulations aren't as effec-
tive.
Still other cold medications that are
available in the pharmaceutical aisle are
being abused. These cold medicines con-
tain the drug dextromethorphan, or
DXM, which is not as restricted as pseu-
doephedrine. When DXM is used legiti-
mately it treats cold or allergy symp-
toms. However, when taken in high
doses the drug can cause hallucinations
and a sense of dissociation. Its effects
last up to six hours. Many teens call this
abuse "Robotripping," which gets its
name from Robitussin cough syrups
that contain DXM.


Other teens are abusing common at-
tention deficit hyperactivity disorder
(ADHD) drugs, such as Ritalin. A Cen-
ters for Disease Control and Prevention
report in 2006 stated that 25 deaths, 19
of them children, have been linked to
ADHD drugs. The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration has acknowledged that
psychiatric drugs can
cause suicide, homicidal ideation, ma-
nia, psychosis, heart attack, stroke and
sudden death. The abuse of
methylphenidate (Ritalin) has become a
major problem. It acts much like cocaine
and many teens are injecting or snorting
it. The drug now sells for $5 to $10 a pill
on the black market and is sometimes
called "Vitamin R," "R-ball," and the
"poor man's cocaine."
Side Effects
It is a common misconception that
prescription or over-the-counter drugs
are generally safer than illegal ones. Un-
der careful dosage, these drugs may be
safe for their intended prescription.
However, overdosing can lead to many
problems. For example, high doses of
DXM can cause increased body temper-
atures, irregular heartbeat, high blood
pressure, loss of consciousness, seizure,
brain damage, and death. Other effects
include nausea, abdominal pain, vomit-
ing, headache, numbness of fingers and
toes, confusion, impaired judgment,
blurred vision, dizziness, paranoia, ex-
cessive sweating, and slurred speech.
If You Suspect Abuse ...
Chances are, even if your teen isn't
abusing these drugs, he or she knows
about them. As a precaution, it pays to
be on the lookout for the aforemen-
tioned drug effects and for other telltale
signs. You can also take other measures
to deter abuse, courtesy of
KidsHealth.org:
Lock your medicine cabinet or keep
over-the-counter (OTC) medicines that
could potentially be abused in a less ac-
cessible place. *
Avoid stockpiling OTC medicines.
Having too many OTC medications at
your teen's disposal could make abus-
ing them more tempting.
Keep an eye out for not only tradi-
tional-looking cough and cold remedies
in your teen's room, but also strange-
looking tablets (DXM is often sold on.
the Internet and at raves in jts pure .
form in various shapes and colors).


Sturgeon collision injures Old Town child


A jumping sturgeon in-
jured a 6-year-old girl Sun-
day while she was riding
in a boat on the Suwannee
River near the Yellow
Jacket boat ramp.
Taylor Lane Owen, 6, of
Old Town, was a passen-
ger in a 20-foot Proline
vessel, according to Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
.(FWC) officials.
Taylor was riding with
her mother, Wendy Gor-
don, 31; her father, Jack
.Gordon, 48; and her broth-
er, Justin Gordon, 2; all
from Old Town, and her
aunt, Kelly Claflin, 20, of
Williston.
The. boat was just north
of the Yellow Jacket boat
ramp, approximately 9
miles west of Chiefland,
FWC officials said. The
vessel, operated by Jack
Gordon, was traveling at
about 20 miles per hour.
Claflin was sitting on the
left side of the boat be-
tween the bow and the
console, behind Taylor,
who was on a folding
chair on the bow of the
vessel. A 3-foot sturgeon
jumped out of the river,
striking Taylor and Clafin.
Taylor suffered a leg frac-
ture and Clafin sustained
bruises and cuts.
Taylor was transported

The sturgeon jumped
back into the water.
"This is the third con-
firmed sturgeon strike of
2007," said Maj. Bruce
Hamlin, regional comman-
der for FWC's North Cen-
tral Region, based in Lake
City. "Four people have
been injured. That's four
too many."
The major went on to,
say the FWC is putting in-
creased emphasis on the
public awareness cam-
paign about the sturgeon
in the. Suwannee.
"We have been actively
engaging the public on the
dangers of these jumping
sturgeon for more than a'
year. We had 10 people in-
jured last year, and we've
had four people injured
this year. FWC has placed
warning signs at all the
boat ramps along the river,


and we are distributing
decals, warning boaters of
the jumping sturgeon and
to go slow while boating
on the Suwannee," Hamlin
said.
"However, we are look-
ing to do more. We plan to
put new signs on the river
at boat docks and busi-
nesses so the boating pub-
lic can see the signs while
they're on the water,"
Hamlin said. "We're inter-
ested in talking with
homeowners on the
Suwannee River who
would be willing to place a
sturgeon warning sign on
their docks.

Lafayette Health Care Center Spring event


Lafayette Health Care Center residents,
and their family members and friends
held a BBQ pork dinner on June 15. The
event had been postponed after encoun-
tering thick smoke in our area during the
large fire near Lake City earlier this year.
There were over 110 residents, and their


family and friends, who took part in the
evening. The nursing facility schedules
three or four of this type events each year
to encourage friends and family to come
together for something good to eat, and to
enjoy some entertainment at the skilled

Vision development timeline


One of the more complex sensory systems in the body,
vision is something that is one of the last things to devel-
op fully in young children.When infants are born, they
do not have mature visual abilities. In fact, in the early
days, their hearing ability is much more pronounced
than their visual ability. Muscle coordination is also very
immature at this time. That is why many parents notice
their infant's eyes turning inward or crossing.
0-3 months: Infants cannot focus very well, but may
gradually learn to focus in on faces that will become rec-
ognizable. They also cannot see at extreme distances, so
they respond to objects placed within a few inches of
their faces, no more than a foot away. This is fine for.
nursing or cuddling with their parents. Brightly contrast-
ing colors and patterns can be discerned.
4-6 months: Babies can now see a full range of colors.
They will be able to track movement of objects with their
eyes. They may also begin reaching for or batting at ob-
jects within reach. By this time, the retina is very well de-
veloped and babies should be able to visualize small ob-
jects.
7 months-to 2 years: As every month goes by, a child's
vision improves and sharpens. By the time of his or her
second birthday, the child will have near-perfect vision,
at 20/60 (20/20 is perfect).
Vision Checkups
There is debate as to who should monitor a child's vi-
sual development. Many people feel that the examina-
tion done by a pediatrician at a child's well visit check-
ups is adequate. A pediatrician will be able to spot minor
vision problems, if present, and treat certain ailments.
He or she may refer a child to a specialist if there is
something wrong beyond the scope of his or her exper-
tise.
On the other hand, many optometrists and ophthal-
mologists believe that it is in the child's best interest to

have vision exams by an eye doctor as early as 6 months
of age. Checkups should also occur at age 3 and before
the child enters school. Some eye doctors offer free exams
to babies 6 months and younger.
Optometrist or Ophthalmologist?
When making plans to take a child to an eye doctor for
an examination you may not be sure about the differ-
ences between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist.
It's a common question.
Optometrists have a minimum of four years training at
a school of optometry in eye and vision care, diseases of
the eye, and larger health problems that affect the eyes,
such as diabetes. Some may be able to prescribe certain
medications, depending upon state.
Ophthalmologists have a minimum of eight years of
medical training and are medical doctors,who specialize
in eyes. They may have to spend three or more years in a
hospital eye-residency program. Because they are doc-
tors, they can prescribe any and all medication. Ophthal-
mologists also perform eye surgery of all sorts, and han-
dle any care of the eyes, as would an optometrist.
Opticians are not trained to diagnose or treat eye prob-
lems. They are skilled in making and dispensing lenses
and glasses.They serve in the same capacity as a pharma-
cist filling the "prescription" of the doctor.
,


It takes a few months for a baby's vision to develop to the point
that he or she can focus on Mom or Dad's face.

and their families for their
hard work and dedication
to the profession.


A total of 57 farmers
were recognized and hon-
ored for their outstanding
achievements in farming
practices. Each recipient
received a certificate of


achievement from Bronson
and Hoblick. "The old
adage that farmers are the
best environmentalists is
proven by this event. I
congratulate all of this


~~-


year's winners. Like these
fine producers, Florida
Farm Bureau is committed
to the CARES program for
the long-term. What we
have accomplished shows
that farmers and ranchers
are outstanding stewards
of our land-our basic re-
source," Hoblick said.


Among those honored
were five Lafayette County
farmers, Bryan Prine, Terry
. Folsom, Scott Prine, Randy
Moses, and Fred Moses.
The acronym CARES
stands for "County Al-
liance for Responsible En-
vironmental Stewardship."
In order to receive a


CARES certificate, appli-
cants are required to be ex-
cellent stewards of the
land and implement effec-
tive farming practices that
protect the environment.
They also receive a sign on
their property that desig-
nates them as a "This Farm
Cares."

life as well as the lives of
others at risk. "The time to
plan is now, not when the
storm is on its way. The
'storm prophets' have pre-
dicted a busy season,
which just basically means
that we have more
chances of getting hit.
However, whether a busy
or slow season, it doesn't
really matter as all it takes
is one," Land said.
As you are putting to-
gether a hurricane prepa-
ration and safety plan,
Land stated that it is im-
portant to keep in mind
several things' such as
food; water, prescription
medicine, shelter, and
where to take your pets.
He also advises that you
need to know which road
you will take because
there will be many people
using the same time if


everyone is ordered-to
evacuate to safety.

Chevys

through

of the was than "


a fellow in -
S.* ,^ o. o".ld," ,-


Sixty-one classic Chevrolet cars and trucks lined up at the Tahlequah Community Building Wednesday, as part of a tour of the area
by vintage Chevy drivers.


By Eddie Glenn
CNHI News Service

TAHLEQUAH, Okla.
The rain didn t help things
much when Richard Mann
drove into Tahlequah in his
1928 Chevrolet pickup truck.
Fortunately, he had modem
conveniences, like Rain-X
windshield treatment and a
wife to run the hand-operated
windshield wiper.
Mann and his wife, Diane,
were two of the 143 vintage
Chevy owners who cruised
into town in 61 cars Not a
Ford among em! as one of
the participants proudly stated
- as part of the Vintage
Chevrolet Club of America s
Southern Spring Tour.
The Chevy-cade, such as it
was, hit town around noon.
Motorists had lunch at the


Tahlequah Community Build-
ing, and then spent the day
cruising around Tahlequah
and the surrounding area.
None of the Chevys was
newer than 1954, and Mann s
truck was one of the oldest -
barely beaten out by a 1927
model. We bought this truck
from a fellow in Washington
state who was 92 years old,
said Mann, of Rose Hill, Kan.
He had a collection of clas-
sic cars, and had to sell some
of them because he was dat-
ing a younger woman. She
was in her 70s.
Mann s truck is a half-ton
model, with a four-cylinder
engine and a three speed
transmission.Chevy didn t
start putting six-cylinders in
their trucks until 1929, the
year after Mann s truck was
made.


In fact, Chevy didn t even
make most of the body metal
for Mann s truck. The compa-
ny built everything from the
firewall forward, and put a
fender over each tire. Then,
an early form of outsourcing
was implemented to turn the
bare-bones chassis into a
truck.
The body was actually
made by a company called
Martin-Perry, said Mann.
What Chevrolet did in 28
was build a commercial chas-
sis, and custom truck compa-
nies built the bodies. That
half-moon window [behind
each side window] was one of
Martin-Perry s things.
As for the rain, Mann said
that at a top speed of about 40
mph, it s not that much of a
problem.
With Rain-X on the wind-
shield, it s not too bad, he
said. In 28, they had four
wheel brakes, so it s not too
hard to stop.

Lyle Shaffer is the whole
show when it comes to his
business, Shaffer Landscap-
ing.
Owner, supervisor and
employee, the former service
manager for a Caterpillar
dealership embarked on a
landscaping career as a way
to occupy his retirement. He
also enjoys the work.
It is just something to
keep me busy, to keep me
active, he said.
Shaffer now keeps busy
picking up autumn leaves.
Many of his clients want the
leaves gone but are elderly
and cannot do the work
themselves.
Then there are those who
simply do not have time to
pick them up.
I 11 be busy up until New
Year s Eve; Shaffer said.
Leaves make beautiful
scenery when autumn peaks,
but as the season wears on
and trees shed their foliage,
leaves pose more than aes-
thetic problems.
Jon Skinner, an urban
forester with the Missouri
Department of Conservation,
warned that leaves can be
detrimental to grass. The
overlay of fallen foliage
thwarts photosynthesis, in
which the energy from sun-
light is converted into use-
able energy for grass, he
said.
Heaping leaves together
and setting them ablaze
might seem to be the easiest
solution, but burning carries
its own risks. A fire can run
amok, threatening property
and people, and also releases
carbon dioxide into the at-


to burning
mosphere, Skinner said.
Local conservationists say
there are alternatives to
burning. Composting leaves
so they can be used as mulch
is one alternative touted by
conservationists for ecologi-
cal and practical reasons.
Composting keeps leaves
and other yard waste from
going to landfills, said Mary
Anne Phillips, recycling co-
ordinator for the city of
Joplin.
The mulch also can be
used as a natural fertilizer
for lawns in place of nonor-
ganic fertilizers and chemi-
cals. This natural approach
prevents runoff from fertiliz-
ers and pesticides from seep-
ing into water bodies and
by being tilled into the soil
makes plants healthier
and less vulnerable to dis-
eases and insects.
Joplin residents can have
the city harvest their leaves
for composting through the
annual leaf-pickup program,
but Phillips said people also
can compost at home.
Leaves, grass and meat-free
kitchen scraps are stirred in a
compost bin and kept moist
until the finished compost is
harvested from the bottom.
Skinner, with the Conser-
vation Department, said
leaves can be used directly
as mulch if they are piled up
around trees and in flower
beds. This technique helps
retard weed growth, protects
the soil and mimics forest
conditions, he said.
People also can mulch

We Take



Health to


Your



Heart


Making green choices for a healthy home is getting easier


A house becomes a home when we make it our place of renewal and family
a place where we unwind from our busy days and connect again with each
other. We design interiors filled with the things we love to create a place of
laughter, light and beauty.
But a home is more than a haven for us it is a place that actually can
impact our health and even the environment. More and more Americans are
choosing building practices and using products that conserve energy and
water and keep the air they breathe cleaner and.healthier.
Organizations like the U.S. Green Building Council and the National
Association of Home Builders know that the components in some materials
used in building or remodeling your house can seriously affect your health
and the environment around you chemicals from carpets, adhesives and
sealants, and paints and coatings, for example, are released into the air and
your lungs. How do you know if your home is really a healthy home?
Ask your contractor what kinds of materials and products (such as caulks
and adhesives) are used and what he does to make sure your home is
environmentally safe and earth-friendly. Investigate the level of VOCs, or
Volatile Organic Compounds, in these itenis. In a 2002 bulletin, the American
Solvents Council stated that the solvents used in products such as coatings,
adhesives and consumer products are generally classified as VOCs that can be
emitted into the air after they perform their function. The building industry
knows that solvents are an important component of a wide range of high
performance products used in building and remodeling homes. It also knows
that those products need to be as safe as possible. More and more
manufacturers are stepping up by producing industrial green products,
especially caulks, sealants and adhesives, which are high performance but
environmentally safe for construction. You can ask that such products be used
in the construction or remodeling of your home wherever possible.
However, the manufacturers of glues for the do-it-yourself market have
been slow to follow the environmentally friendly efforts of the industrial side.
Part of this is that there is a public perception that green products aren t as
strong as products containing a high volatile organic compound level. So
some consumers think they have to choose between friendliness to the
environment and performance.
Look for companies like Eclectic Products, which has developed a glue for
people who want an adhesive that is both strong and easy on the environment.
Amazing EcoGlueT" is the first industrial strength, earth-friendly glue for the
DIY market that outperforms even the popular urethane glues that foam when
applied. Amazing EcoGlueT' is safe for you and your family and capable of
bonding with industrial strength to almost any material indoors and out.

DIY adhesives have gone green, offering industrial strength in an earth-friendly
product.

This water-based adhesive is environmentally safe (it has less than -1 percent
volatile organic compounds), with virtually no hazardous air pollutants and no
animal derivatives. Even the bottle and packaging are 100 percent recyclable.
This is the glue that can be used on everything with confidence. It is simple
to use and requires no mixing or special tools. An added bonus is that even
though Amazing EcoGlueT is a water-based adhesive, it dries to a tough film
with excellent water resistance. Use it on almost any material including wood,
stone, metal, ceramic, glass, cloth and more.
Now you can be good to the earth and your family while keeping your home
in top shape with a glue you can trust to serve you well. For more information

', i.-CT THY PATHS -PROVERBS 3:5-6


By Pam Campbell
n the Merriam Webster Dictionary
Swe find the following definition of
the word Freedom. 1 : the quality
or state of being free: a : the ab-
sence of necessity, coercion, or
constraint in choice or action b : liberation
from slavery or restraint or from the power
of another: Independence c : the quality
or state of being exempt or released usual-
ly from something onerous, freedom from
care d spoke the language with freedom e
: the quality of being frank,'open, or out-
spoken answered with freedom f : improp-
er familiarity g : boldness of conception or
execution h : unrestricted use gave him
the freedom of their home 2 a : a political
right.
Freedom means many things to many
people. We see in the definition that it
means being free, not being restrained or
in slavery, having a choice, independence,
freedom to speak, to be re-
leased, to be bold, to
be able to move
about their home or
anywhere freely, and
to some it is their po-
litical right.
I see Freedom as a
blessing from God. The
most important Freedom
that we have is the freedom
that comes from salvation.
God's word shows us this in
John 8:36: "If the Son therefore
shall make you free, ye shall be
free indeed." When we come
to know Jesus as our savior
we find out what real free-
dom is. We are no longer
slaves to sin, no longer
bound for an eternity with-
out Christ, but we are free to know Christ,
we are free to rejoice in our salvation. Je-
sus has set us free! That is the ultimate
Freedom.
Since this is the month of July we are
also thinking about the freedom we have
living in our great country, America. This
month we celebrate our nation's birthday
on the Fourth of July. Have you ever
thought about how blessed you are to be
living in America? America is a free country.
We have freedom in America to do any-
thing we choose to as long as it is not ille-
gal. We may choose to live where we want
and travel if we like. We can eat what we
want, when we want it. We have the free-
dom to sleep, play, go to school, to
church, to work, to go to the store, we can
go outside when we choose, we can read
what we want, believe what we want, raise
our families and have friends, we have so
many blessings that we don't even realize.
We have medical care available, we have
people that will help in times of need,, we
have the freedom to read God's Word and
share -it with others. We are blessed with
lots of freedom in our country, America.
How many times have you been to the
grocery store? I know that both you and I
have seen lots of different kinds of gro-
ceries in the store. Some of the groceries
have been around as long as we can re-
member and then sometimes we see
something new on the shelves and we

wonder if it is worth trying or not. I imag-
ine when you go to the grocery store that.
you like to buy your family fruit, meat, veg-
etables, milk, cereal, bread, crackers,
maybe some treats such as soda or candy.
When making a grocery list it seems that
we need so much more all the time. There
are millions of children and adults all over
the world that have never even been in a
grocery store. People that never have
enough to eat, many that go to bed hungry
at night. There are countries where my
family and I have visited where the grocery
stores only have a few things on almost
bare shelves. The price is too high for
most people to even buy the food. They
have milk in the store that you can buy if
you are rich, when it is available. It costs
$9.50 for one gallon and most of the time
it is already sour and curdled. It is so sad

to see little children that are hungry and
parents that are trying so hard to take care


of
their chd-
dren but
cannot get food for
diem. The next time you
have a glass of milk, or pour one for a
child, please remember to thank God for
it. It is a privilege thht we have by living in
a free country.
I know there are people in America that
are poor and many that do not have
enough food, but at least in America, there
are people that will can help them and
there are opportunities for them to work.
In America we have hope. There are many
countries not too far away where the cus-
toms officials will take a child's candy away
from them if someone was kind enough to
send it so them. There are so many coun-
tries where there seems to be no hope.
When I travel with my family to other
countries and even some places in America
we make up Ziploc bags of little toys, stick-
ers, balloons, candy, sometimes hair bar-
rettes, combs, toothbrushes and paste,
bracelets, cars, balls, pencils, crayons, a
tiny doll, or other small things. We take
these bags with us and hand them out to
children and sometimes even parents! The
children in many places that we have trav-
eled to are so excited that they smile,
some jump up and down, some hug us,
they show everyone their treasures, to
them it is like Christmas! You see these
children do

not have much and they really appreciate
whatever someone gives them. Seeing the
joy on their faces is the highlight of any
trip.
Everywhere that we go we see things
that remind us how blessed we are to live
in America. Just a few weeks ago we were
in Mexico and had the wonderful opportu-
nity of driving all over many neighbor-
hoods where there were lots of poor chil-
dren and moms and dads. We gave out
about a hundred bags which is all we had
with us and wished we had more bags, as
there were so many children. We ended up
giving away the candy, gum and snacks
that we had for us to eat in the car to chil-
dren when we ran out of bags! We even
had the chance to make lots of little school
children very'happy when they were just
getting out of school! Even though most of
them did not speak English and we only
know a little bit of Spanish we were able
to let
f


them know
that someone cares about them. We like to
include a little child's comic book style
tract telling them about Jesus. We had
Spanish ones with us for this trip! We are
hoping to go back there again in Decem-
ber to take some Christmas bags! We will
be sure to take even more with us this o-.,
time! If any of you desire to be i part of
this ministry please contact me at
pam@kencampbell.net. We can always
use help making up little bags, or items for
the bags. You can be a part of spreading
God's love!
We are heading up to enjoy the beauty
of the Lord's mountains in places like
North Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia and
eastern Tennessee. We are taking lots of lit-
tle bags with English tracts to give to the
poor Appalachian children. Even taking a
vacation can become such a wonderful
mission opportunity! The Lord can and
will use all of us anytime, anywhere if we
are just open to him.
This month we will be in Honduras tak-
ing things, like food, clothes, shoes, books,
school supplies and toys to children in an
orphanage there. We will also be visiting a
small fishing village in Mexico where we
will take school supplies to the school and
also little bags for all the children we can
find. It is so much fun to bless someone
else! It is a wonderful way to share God's
love and put smiles on people's faces! We
all need to remember to share the Lord
with every-
one that we
meet. Our
lives should
shine forth
with the
spirit of the
Lord. 2

God's freedom to others and they can be
set free,
Now you are probably thinking that you
wish you could help someone like that.
Maybe some of you do, God may have al-
ready opened many doors for you. If he
has, always be thankful, and be faithful to
his calling. If you say no, you have never
had the opportunity to travel somewhere
and share with others as I have spoke
about, but you wish you could share God's
love that way. I have great news for you!
You can share God's love with others right
where you live! Think of ways that you
could make someone happy. Maybe send-
ing them a card, making someone that is
sick or lonely something special or giving
someone a hug. A gift that will usually
bring a smile is giving someone some of
your time! Maybe you can give something
to someone that is needy, someone that
has lost their home to a fire or storm,,
someone that is out of work, or maybe
someone that has just moved to the area
and needs some kind of help. There are
lots of missions projects at various
churches and things like Op-
: eration Christmas Child,
Thanksgiving and Christmas
Food and Toy Drives,
Homeless Shelters, Pregnan-
cy Crisis Centers, the list
could go on and on. If
you want to help some-
one, if you want to
put a smile on some-
one's face you will be
able to find some-
where right in your
own hometown! It is
wonderful to share God's
love with others!
I know that I am thankful to be living in
America; I know that our country has
problems, but thank God, our country is
still free! We are free to go to school, to
church, to work, to play, we have stores
where there is food to buy and we are can
buy it; we.are'free to celebueeAthedOurth I.s
of July we can i'hve a' piehi,'we .can..ti~avel:
to other places, we truly are blessed to live
in America! Not all countries are free.
Many soldiers have had to defend our
country over the years, they had to fight to
keep America free and many still are de-
fending this great nation today. We need to
pray for our nation, that God will keep
America a free nation.
The month of July is always a special
month for all of us in America! The Fourth
of July is a day when we celebrate the
birthday of our country, America! I am sure
that most of you are probably look forward
to wearing red, white and blue, waving the
American flag, having picnics, going to pa-
rades or fireworks, it is for most people a
day full of fun! We celebrate our country's
birthday because we live in a free country.
Not all countries in the world allow the
people to celebrate or even have picnics.
We truly are blessed to be able to celebrate
Independence Day! In the Bible, God
says in Acts 17:26 "From one man God
made every nation of men, that they
should inhabit the whole earth; and he de-
termined the times set for them and the
exact places where they should live." You
see before you were ever born God knew
that you would be blessed to live in Ameri-
ca. America is still a nation blessed by
God, and this year as we celebrate our
countries birthday, on the fourth of July,
remember to be thankful to God for allow-
ing yqu to live in a country where we still
have our freedom. Think about it, most of
us have food, clothes, a bed, a home, and
a family. Do not ever get to the point
where you take for granted the blessings
that you have in this country, remember to
pray for your country. God has blessed
America, pray that his blessing will contin-
ue. I am so thankful to live in America, our
Home Sweet Home. I hope that you have a
Happy, Blessed Fourth of July! Remember,
to thank God for Freedom!

FREEDOM


By Pam Campbell.
Have you ever thought about how
blessed you are to be living in America?
America is a free country. We have free-
dom in America to do what we want to as
long as it is not against the law, and does
not hurt anyone, and of course you have
not been told by your parents that you
can't do it. Families can live where they
want to. We have freedom to eat, sleep,
play, go to school, to church, to work, we
can go outside when we choose, we can
choose to play sports or to dance, or to
sing, paint, read or study, we have so
many choices in our lives. In this country
we have lot's of freedom.
How many times have you been to the
grocery store with your mom or dad? I am
sure that you saw lot's of different kinds
of groceries. I imagine that you saw things
that you like your family to buy such as
candy, fruit, crackers, and so much more.
There are millions of children all over the
world that have never even been in a gro-
cery store. Children that never have
enough to eat, many that go to bed hun-
gry at night. There are countries where
my family and I have visited where the
grocery stores only have a few things on
almost bare shelves. The price is too high
for most people to even buy the food.
They have milk in the store sometimes
that you can buy if you are rich. It costs
$9.50 for one gallon and most of the time
it is already sour and curdled. It is so sad
to see little children that are hungry and
parents that are trying so hard to take care
of their children but cannot get food for
them. The next time you have a glass of
milk, please remember to thank God and
also whoevergave it to you for it. It is.a.'
privilege that we-have by living in a free
country. .
I know there are people in America that
are poor and may not have food, but at
least in America, there are people that will
help them. In America we have hope.
There are many countries not too far away
'that will take a child's candy away from
them if someone was kind enough to
send it so them.
When I travel with my family to other
countries and even some places in Ameri-
ca we make up little Ziploc bags of little
toys, stickers, balloons, candy, sometimes
hair barrettes, combs, toothbrushes and
paste, bracelets, cars, balls, pencils,
crayons, a tiny doll, or other small things.
We take these bags with us and hand
them out to children and sometimes even
parents! The children in many countries
that we have traveled to are so excited
that they smile, some jump up and down,
some hug us, they show everyone their
treasures, to them it is like Christmas! You
see these children do not have much and
they really appreciate whatever someone
gives them.
Everywhere that we go we see things
that remind us how blessed we are to live
in America. Just a few weeks ago we were
in Mexico and had the wonderful oppor-
tunity of driving all over many neighbor-
hoods where there were lot's of poor chil-
dren and mom's and dad's. We gave out
all that we had and wished we had even
more bags as there were so many chil-
dren. We ended up giving away the candy,
gum, and snacks that we had for us to eat
in the car to children when we ran out of
bags! We even had the chance to make
lot's of little school children very happy
when they were just getting out of school!
. Even though most of them did not speak
English and we only know a little bit of
Spanish we were able to let them know
that someone cares about them. We like


'A


to include a little child's comic kind of
tract telling them about Jesus. We had
Spanish ones with us for this trip! We are
looking forward to going back there again
in December to take some Christmas pre-
sents! We will be sure to take even more
with us this time!
This month we will be in Honduras tak-
ing things, like food, clothes, shoes,
books, school supplies and toys to chil-
dren in an orphanage there. It is so much
fun to bless someone else! It is a wonder-
ful way to share God's love and see smiles
on people's faces! Now you are proba-
bly thinking that you wish you could help
someone like that. I have great news for
you! You can share God's love with others
right where you live! Think of ways that
you could make someone happy. Maybe
making them a card, drawing someone
that is sick or lonely a picture, or giving
someone a hug. Maybe you can give
something to someone that is needy, ask
your mom, dad, grandparents, or your
pastor if they know somebody that needs
something. There are always ways that
you can help bring a smile to someone's
face! It is wonderful to share God's love
with others!
I know that I am thankful to be living
in America; I know our country has prob-
lems, but thank God, our country is free!
We are free to go to school, to church, to
work, out to play, we have stores where
there is food to buy and we are can buy it,
we are free to celebrate the fourth of July,
we can have a picnic, we can travel to oth-
er places, we truly are blessed to live in
America! Not all countries are free, that
is why so many soldiers have had to de-
fend our country over the years, they had
to fight to keep America free and mhny
still do.
The month of July is always a special
month for all of us in America! The Fourth
of July is a day when we celebrate the
birthday of our country, America! I am
sure that most of you are probably look
forward to wearing red, white and blue,
waving the American flag, having picnics,
going to parades or fireworks, it is for
most people a day full of funl We cele-
brate our country's birthday because we
live in a free country. Not all countries in
the world allow the people to celebrate or
have picnics; many countries are too poor
to have a picnic.
In the Bible God says in Acts 17:26
"From one man God made every nation of
men, that they should inhabit the whole
earth; and he determined the times set for
them and the exact places where they
should live." You see before you were ever
born God knew that you would be
blessed to live in America. America is
still a nation blessed by God, and this year
as we celebrate our countries birthday, on
the fourth of July, remember to be thank-
ful to God for allowing you to live in a
country
where we
still have \
our free-
dom. Think
about it,
most of us
have food,
clothes, a
home, and a NORTH FLORIDA

Fourth


of July


make it a


safe one

Submitted
If you plan to visit one of
the three National Forests in
Florida on the Fourth of July,
here are a few tips to make
your trip safe and fun!
First, remember due to ex-
treme fire danger, open fires
are prohibited in the
Apalachicola and Osceola
National Forests. Forest Su-
pervisor Marsha Kearney is-
sued the closure to open fire
and it is in effect until Aug. 9.
Although the ban on open
fires was lifted on the Ocala
National Forest, the forest is
still very dry and caution
should be used with any fire.
This ban on open fires in-
cludes: building, maintaining,
attending or using a fire,
campfire, or stove fire, except
for stove fires in commercial-
ly designed devices for cook-
ing. These commercially de-
signed devices include
propane cook stoves and
above-the-ground pedestal
grills.
Fires that are placed direct-
ly on the ground for cooking
purposes are considered to be
the same as campfires, and
are specifically prohibited for
the entire duration of the ban
(May 9-Aug. 9).
Second, off-highway vehi-
cles must be equipped with a
spark arrester that is approved
by the USDA Forest Service,
a braking system, and a muf-
fler, all in operating condi-
tion.
Third, leave your fireworks
at home. Fireworks ari pro-
hibited in the National Forests
in Florida.
Fourth, always check with
your local Forest Service of-
fice to find out the restrictions
in the area you are going be-
fore beginning your camping
trip. All Osceola National
Forest lands north of Inter-
state 10 are still closed to en-
try due to public safety con-
cerns from ongoing restora-
tion activities after the Buga-
boo Fire.
If choosing to camp in areas
outside of developed camp-
grounds, remember to pack
out your garbage, and check
your surroundings for haz-
ards: Look up, look down,
and look around.
Do not use ground level
fires on the Osceola or
Apalachicola!
Do not leave fires unattend-
ed!
SDo have a SAFE visit to
your National Forest.
Remember-if you see
smoke or fire, call 911.

their leaves with their lawn
mowers. This practice re-
cycles essential nutrients
that were mined by deep
tree roots back to the soil
surface, making them avail-

can mulch leaves by mow-
ing, but he warned that the
resulting pieces should not
be large. Leaving large
clumps of leaves on a lawn
hampers photosynthesis.
They are going to have
to be pretty small, he said.
Skinner said a few leaf
types might not make good
mulch for some vegetation.
Walnut leaves, for example,
can be lethal to tomato
plants, he said.

Dear Classified Guys,
My luck at finding a soul mate is a bit
questionable. I've been divorced
twice and have pretty much given up
on marriage for myself. However, I
have a knack for helping others find
their perfect partner. I started by set-
ting up my best friend with my co-
worker. They hit it off and got
married only a few months later.
Then I set up my ex-husband's broth-
er with a woman from my church.
Once again, perfect match! I don't
know what it is, but I can meet people
and immediately tell who would be a
perfect fit. I haven't missed yet in the
dozen or so times I've tried. So far,
eight have resulted in marriage. This
got me thinking. Maybe I could start
a business as a matchmaker. It
seems like the perfect job for me. I
was going to place an ad in the A
business services section, .
but to be honest, after that, .y1- -
I'm just not sure how to '"
continue. Any suggestions?

Cash: It seems your track record for
finding the chemistry between friends
is pretty good. With eight marriages,
you've probably attended a few wed-
dings lately!
Carry: Not surprisingly, weddings


are a great place to find clients for a
matchmaking service. People are often
excited about dating again after a wed-
ding. Although, they might be excited
after a divorce as well!
Cash: Before you jump into this
profession, you should study up. One
of the best ways to get started would be
to talk with other matchmakers who
can offer you some insight into the
business. Then, you can build on the
successes you've already had.
Carry: The business will involve
more than just matching people.
Professional matchmakers typically
operate on a local basis and often rely
on word of mouth to gain new clients.
That means you'll have to sharpen your


marketing skills.
Cash: Remember that any business
can be hard work. As you know, you
.will need to meet with a lot of people to
interview potential clients and matches.
Carry: You will-also have to set up
contracts for your services and a fee
schedule. Most matchmakers charge
up front based on a length of time or
the number of matches.
Cash: Fortunately with your current
track record, you're off to a good start.
And if you enjoy working with people
through the dating process, it could be a
lot of fun for you as well.
Carry: And who knows, you may
just meet Mr. Right along the way.
After all, the third time is a charm!


Dating is a Game
Dating has always been entertaining.
Despite all the recent reality shows
such as The Bachelor, Blind Date or
Age of Love, one dating show remains
timeless, The Dating Game. It first
aired on December 20, 1965 on ABC
and continued through much of the 80's
and part of the 90's. Over the years,
many famous people appeared as con-
testants (before they were famous)
including Oprah Winfrey, Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Steve Martin,
Michael Jackson and Tom Selleck, who
appeared twice and lost both times.
Polling the Numbers
Sometimes it may feel like you're the
only single person out there, but accord-
ing to the U.S. Census, 44% of adult
Americans are single. That's about 100
million people in the same situation.
However, when you meet someone new,
remember that first impressions count.
It's estimated that men take only about 15
minutes to determine if the first date is
worthy of a second. Women, on the
other hand, don't rush to judgment that
quickly. They can take up to an hour to
decide if their date should have a second
encounter. .
Got a question or funny story? Leave a message
toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to: P.O. Box
8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Back in the Game
After I broke up with my boyfriend,
the girls in the office took me out for
drinks at a singles.bar. After chatting
for a while, they left me on my own to
meet some new people. I was sitting
there for merely a minute when a short
man with a tall ego sat down next to
me. I could tell he %as a pla.ier from
the first moment.
When he asked me for my phone
number, I poltel', obliged by writing it
on a cocktail napkin and returned to
my group of girls. Laughing at the
whole e\ ent, one of them said, "He
%%as definite the bar fl\ type. You;
didn't give him your real number, did
you?"
"Of course not," I smiled back. "I
gave him ,ours!"

With rising temps, pet owners need


I/- --\

to be

-4-(7(DU~


Similar to humans, most pets begin to get a little antsy
around the beginning of spring. After a winter spent indoors,
pets are just as ready as their human companions for some
fun in the sun. And just like for people, certain
precautionary measures need to be taken to ensure pets can
withstand the rising temperatures of spring and summer and
avoid a host of other potential problems.
Y Beware of lawns: One of the biggest concerns for pet
owners, particularly dog owners, during the summer months
should be neighboring lawns or even large fields at parks.
This is due to the pesticides, fertilizers and insecticides
many homeowners use to protect their lawns during wanner
months.
Certain plants and flowers, if ingested, can be harmful to
pets as well. As the Humane Society of the United States
(HSUS) points out, more than 700 plants have been
identified as producing toxic substances that can be harmful
to animals. Some you may even have in your own backyard,
such as apple trees (seeds can be detrimental to an animal s
health) and holly shrubs (berries can be poisonous). While
it s impossible for pet owners and their pets to avoid lawns
entirely, keep a watchful eye whenever you and your pet are
out strolling around the neighborhood.
YAvoid certain temptations: Once the warm weather
returns it s tempting for many pet owners to take their pets
along with them on routine errands. Car trips to the post
office or supermarket can seem relatively harmless but can


turn into a nightmare for your pet. Cars don t take
very long to heat up, even when parked in the shade
On a hot day, it s
common for the [
temperature inside a c, -1 1i
car to reach 120 F in a ( I -
matter of minutes.
While pet owners will [ (
likely have the air
conditioning on while )' ','
they re driving, once
they get out of the car L [(@M
the A/C is typically
turned off, leaving pets Qogg[n]Tl L@ 'lBI
to sit in what soon
becomes sweltering
heat. Heat stroke, heat exhaustion and even brain
damage can occur. In general, during summer months
it s best to leave your pet at home while you re out
running errands.
Y Protect against heartworm: Over the winter, many
pet owners stop giving their pets heartworm
medication. Most veterinarians accept this because
heartworm is transmitted through mosquitoes, which
aren t present during colder months. But once the
weather heats up it s imperative pets again begin
taking heartworm medication. Heartworm is a blood

diseases that can be very painful for pets. Once a pet is
infected, the heartworm larva can grow and develop into
worms, which then live in the blood vessels surrounding the
heart and lungs. The adult worms then mate and circulate
throughout an animal s bloodstream.
Because of the relatively low cost of prevention, many
veterinarians are surprised at the prevalence of heartworm.
While heartworm can be treated once an animal has been
infected, such treatment is often very painful for the animal.
To avoid this fate, simply begin giving your pet (heartworm
is most common in dogs, but can infect cats, too) heartworm
medication before the start of spring, or continue the
medication year-round.
Y Know your pet and what he s capable of: In general, pet
owners should have a feel for how much activity their pet
can handle in warmer weather. Short-nosed dogs, dogs with
thick coats, and dogs who are getting on in years generally
can t handle as much activity in the summer as they can in
other seasons. That s not to say they don t still need
exercise, but owners should be selective about when these
types of pets get their exercise. Early morning or evening
hours, when ihe temperature is at its coolest is
recommended by the HSUS.
YAvoid summer fairs with pets: Heat can be stressful
enough for some pets. Add large crowds and a lot of noise,
and pets can can begin suffering from anxiety. In general,
leave pets at home whenever you attend such gatherings.
Midsummer celebrations, such as Fourth of July fireworks,
can also cause anxiety in pets and should be avoided.

care in general, visit the HSUS Web site at www.hsus..org.
