A seminary professor was vacationing
with his wife in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
One morning, they were eating break-
fast at a little restaurant, hoping to enjoy
a quiet, family meal. While they were
waiting for their food, they noticed a dis-
tinguished looking, white-haired man
moving from table to table;, visiting with
the guests. The professor leaned over
and whispered to his wife, .'I hope he
doesn't come over here.' Butsure
enough, the man did come over to their
table.
"Where are you folks from?" he asked
in a friendly voice.
"Oklahoma," they: answered.
"Great to have you here in Tennessee,"
the stranger said. "What do you do for a
living?"
'I teach at a seminary," he replied.
"Oh, so you teach preachers how to
preach, do you? Well, I've got a really
great story for you." And with that, the
gentleman pulled up a chair and sat
down at the table with the couple.
The professor groaned and thought to
himself, "Great .. Just what I need ...an-
other preacher story!"
The man started, "See that mountain
over there? (pointing out the restaurant
window). ,Not far from the base of that
mountain, there was a boy born to an un-
wed mother. He had a hard time grow-
ing up, because every place he went, he
was always asked the same question,
"Hey boy, who's your daddy?" Whether
he was at school, in the grocery store or
drug store, people would ask the same
question, "who's your daddy?"
He would hide at recess and lunch
time from other students. He would
avoid going into stores because that
question hurt him so bad. When he was
about 12 years old, a new preacher came
to his church. He would always go in
late and slip out early to avoid hearing
the question, "who's your daddy?"
But one day, the new preacher said the
benediction so fast that he got caught
and had to walk out with the crowd.
Just about the time he got to the back
door, the new preacher, not knowing
anything about him, put his hand on his
shoulder and asked him, "Son, who's
your daddy?"


The whole church got deathly quiet.
He could feel every eye in the church
looking at him. Now everyone would fi-
nally know the answer to the question,
S"who's your daddy?"
This new preacher, though, sensed the
situation around him and using discern-
ment that only the Holy Spirit could
give, said the following to that scared lit-
tle boy, "wait a minute! I know who you
are! I see the family resemblance now,
you area child of God."
With that he patted the boy on his
shoulder and said, "Boy, you've got a
great inheritance. Go and claim it."
With that, the boy smiled for the first
time in a long time and walked out the
door a changed person. He was never
the same again. Whenever anybody
asked him, "who's your Daddy?' he'd just
tell them, 'I'm a Child of God."
The distinguished gentleman got up
from the table and said, "Isn't that a great
story?"
The professor responded that it really
was a great story!
As the man turned to leave, he said,
"You know, if that new preacher hadn't
told me that I was one of God's children,
I probably never Would have amounted
to anything!". And he walked away.
The seminary professor and his wife.
were stunned. He called the waitress
over & asked her, "Do you know who
that man was-- the one who just left that
was sitting at our table?"
The waitress grinned and said, "Of
course. Everybody here knows him.
That's Ben Hooper. He's governor of
Tennessee!"
Someone in your life today needs a re-
minder that they're one of God's chil-
dren!
"The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of God stands forever."
"-Isaiah
YOU'RE ONE OF GOD'S
CHILDREN!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Together at home -


let's try new foods!
Enjoy all kinds of foods! That's
good advice for kids and for you.
When kids learn to enjoy many
foods, they have more choices for
smart eating throughout life. That's
good because different foods pro-
mote growth and health in different
ways. 'Food variety makes eating
more interesting and fun, too. Re- '' .
member: seeing, trying, comparing,
and talking about different foods is
part of learning. &
Good feelings about trying new Priscilla Cashman
foods help lead to a lifetime of health-
ful eating. Try new fruits and vegetables as fun experi-
ences with your child.
Offer a new food first, before foods your child eats al-
ready. Kids usually are-more willing to try new foods
when they are hungry.
Have your child choose a new food as you shop. Try-
ing new foods is more fun for kids when they pick them.
Do a taste test. Talk about a new-food. Have your
child describe the color, shape, feel, smell, sound; and
taste' and not whether your child likes or dislikes it.
Go for at least one bite. But stay away from forcing
your child to taste. Keep food trying positive.
Try new foods, too. Encourage your whole family to
try new foods! Kids copy what they see and hear. Don't
say anything if you don't like the food.
Prepare new foods in different ways. Many kids pre-
fer to pick up raw vegetables with fingers. That may
seem better than the same new vegetable that is cooked.
Try and try again. Many kids need to try a new'food 6
to 12 times before they like it. It's.normal for kids to be
. cautious at first.
Relax. Your child doesn't need to like every food.
Everyone (you, too) has different food favorites.

October is National
Energy Awareness
Month and October 30,
has been designated as
National Weatherization
Day. The state of Florida
has administered the
Weatherization Assis-
tance Program since its
inception in 1976, and
nationwide, over 5.5 mil-
lion homes have been
weatherized. This day
has been designated to
provide recognition of
the state of Florida's
Weatherization Program
that provides funds to
very low and low-in-
come families to help re-
duce energy bills and to
provide a more comfort-
able and safe home.
Suwannee River Eco-
nomic Council, Inc.
Weatherization Program
provides home repairs to
homes in Bradford, Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Gilchrist,
Hamilton, Lafayette,
Madison, Suwannee,
Taylor and Union coun-
ties.
A few of the success
stories include a client's
home that needed floor
repairs done on her
home, and how the re-
pairs that were done not
only reduced air infiltra-
tion but has made her
home much safer as
holes in the floor were a
safety hazard. Door and
windows has also made
her home tighter and
safer.
Another client reports
that her home is tighter
and much improved
with her new doors and
windows and she really
likes her new hot water
heater. She is very
pleased with the pro-
gram results.
Another client had
windows broken out, ex-
terior doors were not
closing, and the bath-
room floor had fallen in
thus causing air filtra-
tion in this home. AJll of
this .has been corrected
and the client is very
happy with the results.
With these repairs com-
pleted this should help
with her energy usage
and correct a health and
safety issue.
All of these homes had
air filtration and health
and safety. issues before
repairs were done.

Hatches


Continued From Page 1A

Judge Jackson read the
oath of office to the Hatch-
es, Jim and Claire France,
2006-2007 Granny and Pap-
py, carefully placed the
decorative bonnet and ker-
chief on them and congrat-
ulated them on their
achievement.
Afterwards, everyone
followed Leta Hawkins, a
member of the Lafayette
County Pioneer. Commit-
tee, into the bank's confer-
ence room for cake and
punch. Buck and Minnie
cut the cake together.
Life in Lafayette County
years ago, was different for
Buck and Minnie than it is
today. According to Min-
nie, many things changed,
but others remain the same
such as some of the games
they used to play as school
children. Today, children
still play ring around the
roses and hopscotch.
Buck was born and
raised in Hatch Bend. As a
young boy, he attended
school there. Although' the
wooden building has been
gone for decades, it was a
place where he learned
reading, writing and arith-
metic..It was a one room
school-house called Walker
Creek School. :
The teacher, a strict disci-
plinarian, made sure all the
children learned in school.
According to Buck, any
child, regardless of age,
was punished for misbe-
havior. He said he remem-
bered a time when a stu-
dent was whipped with a
limb from a gallberry bush
several times in one day
for unruly behavior.
Minnie was born and,
raised in a small town
called Shamrock, located
less than a mile north of
Cross City in Dixie County.
In 1950, she moved with
her family to Lafayette and
continued her education in


Mayo. She remembers
when all the teachers and
students would recite the
Lord's prayer and the
Pledge of Allegiance every
morning before the begin-
ning of school.
Mayo was slightly larger.
in size business-wise, than
what it is today, according
to Buck and Minnie. The
town had three grocery
stores, two car, dealerships,
approximately five gas sta-
tions in town, four to five
cafes, and a tractor dealer-
ship.
Also, every Saturday, a
"free show" was provided
at sunset while the grocery
stores would stay open for
business until midnight.
According to Minnie, this
allowed people extra time
to do their grocery shop-
ping-and still catch a
movie. Buck said the
movies did not have sound
until sometime later.
Another time when the
community came together
was when Buck's father
and mother would invite
as many townsfolk as they
could to their home for
singing, music, square-
dancing, and a delicious
home-cooked meal. Ac-
cording to Minnie, Buck's
father was very talented
and could play any instru-
ment he could lay his
hands on.
In 1947, when the Hal
Adams Bridge on SR 51
was dedicated, the Hatches
were present along with a
large crowd of townsfolk
and visitors from Suwan-
nee County and other
neighboring communities.
Buck and Minnie remem-
bered their parents as be-
ing very loving, kind, and
always found ways to pro-'
vide -and take care of them
and their brothers and sis-
ters, especially through the
difficult times. For exam-
ple, Minnie said her moth-
er always found time to


pray, and her father made
.sure the family went to
church.
The Hatches, who will
celebrate their 57th wed-
ding anniversary in No-
vember this year, thanks
the community for allowing

Pearson Brothers



four year starters


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

Every football team, regardless of how
strong or how weak they may be, has
that one or two players who are special
when it comes to playing defense. The
Lafayette Hornets has several such play-
ers this season but only two are four-year
starters. Since their freshman year in high
school Kris and Kyle Pearson, twins, has "
been part of the Hornets varsity football
team ana an intregal part of it defense
side of the football.
Kris Pearson, who plays on the defen-
sive line realizes he will wear the Hornet
jersey for the last time this season. "It has
been fun playing at Lafayette for the past
four years," he said. "It has been great
playing for Coach (Joey) Pearson. I don't
know why but I just love playing foot-


ball."
His brother Kyle said he also enjoys
playing one linebacker slot on defense.
He also fills the fullback position in the
backfield on offense. "I block a lot for Eric
(McIntyre) but defense is my main game
and I love playing it."
Both players indicated that their choice
to play football came by way of family
tradition. Getting started in the game
came when they played in the communi-
ty Pee Wee League. "We had family who
played football and then we got involved
in the Pee Wee League and that was a lot
of fun," said Kris Pearson. "After that we
played JV football while in middle
school."
As with any sport, game preparation is
a vital part of playing the game of foot-

Missed defensive as-
signments and costly
turnovers added up to a
42-14 setback for the .
Lafayette Hornets junior
varsity football team
against Hawthorne last
week. It was the.first loss
of the season for coach
Jimmy Blankenship's
team. The JV Hornets will
travel to Branford tonight
at 7 p.m.
Lafayette spotted
Hawthorne a 20- 0 advan-
tage but came back to cut
the deficit to a single
touchdown, 20-14. After .
that it was all Hawthorne
as they rolled to the easy


win. It was three and out
for Hawthorne on their
first possession of the
game but they turned a
Lafayette miscue into the
game's first score. Ar-
mand Pittman intercepted
a Rodney Brownrpassand
returned it 87-yards to
take a 6-0 lead with 5:15
to play.
A second Lafayette
turnover resulted in
Hawthorne's second
touchdown. On a Brown
pitchout, the ball fell loose
and the Hawthorne Hor-
nets came away with the
loose ball. Seven plays lat-
er Hawthorne quarterback
Marquis Hayes walked in

Lafayette Hornet defensive coordinator, Derek Gar-
land, said it best when he said that the Hornets defense
showed up in the second half at Chiefland. "The defen-
sive line, I thought, started playing on their side of the
ball in the second half," he said. The defensive resur-
gence added up to a 27-14 win over very good
Chiefland Indian football team last Friday night on the
road at Chiefland. It marked the first time in four seasons
that Lafayette was able to bring home a win over the In-

dians,:
In spite of spotting the.host team a 14-0 lead in the,
early going, the Hornets never quit in coming from be-,
hind to secure their fifth win of the season. "I thought
our defense in the first,quarter was a little timid," said
Coach Garland. "In the second half they became more
aggressive and they started tackling better. We told our
guys in the locker room at the half they had to just keep
playing. We had to start making the plays. I felt we
were waiting on them. We were taking the hits instead
of going out and throwing the first punch."
. The plays that change the outcome of the game came
with just over two minutes to playing the third period.
The Hornets were on the short end of a 14-7 score when
the Indians stopped a Hornet drive at the Chief land 36-
yard line. On the ensuing punt from Casey Brewer,
Tommy Sheffield let .the ball slip out of his hands. With
great down field coverage, Chris Padgett fell on the.
football at the Indians 4-yard line.
On first down play from the four, Hornet quarterback
Chad Hempstead hit wide receiver Jamal Reid with a
pass completion. However, Reid's momentum took
him out of the end zone on the catch, nullifying the
catch. On second down play, Hempstead found
Jonathan Anderson in the end zone for the completion
and a Hornet score. Junior Blade Herring split the up-
rights to tie the game at 14-14.
Chiefland shot themselves in the foot again when
Reid kicked off to the Indians. Cheifland coughed up
the football and Thomas Byrd came up with the fumble
giving the Hornets excellent field position from the
Chiefland 30-yard line. Hempstead went to work. He
rushed for a 11-yard gain. He connected with Matt Mil-
ton for an 8-yard pass completion. Eric McIntyre moved
the ball to the Indians 7-yard line. On a third-and-one
play, Hempstead found Reid for the touchdown pass
with 41 seconds to play in the third period. The score
gave the Hornets their first lead of the night, 20-14.

L ast Friday
evening was
just an ideal
evening for a
game of high school foot-
ball. As I made my way
to Chiefland, leaving the
house around 5 p,m., to
cover the Titanic struggle
between our Lafayette
Hornets and host
Chiefland, I was thinking
of what a great victory it
would be if coach Joey
Pearson's ballclub could
pull off a big upset. My
hopes for such an upset
was dampened somewhat


when I entered the gate
leading into the football
field.
After identifying my-
self, the gentleman said,
"Well, go out and knock
yourself out but I don't
think you will have much
of a game to.write about."
Of course he was letting
me know that the Indians
had this one in the win
column already. When I
left the field that night, I
looked at the scoreboard
and it read "Hornets 27,

happen," he said. "That
helps me a lot. I am not the
fastest and I cannot jump
high."
While every player has
his great moments as well
as those disappointing mo-
ment, both Kyle and Kris
had their list. "Breaking my
leg three years ago was my
biggest disappointment
since I have been playing,"
said Kris Pearson. "It hap-
pened in the first game of
the season and I couldn't
play the rest of the season."
Kris said beating Bran-
ford brought real satisfac-
tion but "winning the dis-
trict championship twice
was very satisfying," he
said. "I really think we
have a good chance to win
a third straight district
championship this year."
Kyle Pearson noted the


winning ways of the Hor-
nets as gratification for him.
"Going unbeaten two years
in a row (regular season)
has to be the greatest ac-
complishment for me," he
said. "Winning all our
home games, you cannot
ask for any more than that."
While hoping for a third
straight undefeated season
Kyle saw that go by the
wayside in the first game of
the 2007 season (a 16-0
opening season loss to Key-
stone Heights). 'Turnovers
killed us in that game," he
said. '"That is one game I
wish we could replay. I
fumbled the football on the
5-yard line. Had I not done
that we may have at least
scored."
The twins have never
played opposite each other
while being involved in
sports. "Sometimes we will
see who gets the most tack-
les or hits the most home
runs in baseball," said Kris.
"It has been a lot of fun
playing with Kyle on the
same team over the years. I
have someone that has my
back."

Chiefland 14!" Needless to
say, it was a great evening
at the old football field last
Friday night. You have to
love the way the Hornets
never give up.
Coach Pearson's balldub
is 4-1 on the season with
. some tough games coming
up. Tomorrow night they
will face rival Branford at
home in what promises to
be a tough outing. Bran-
ford will bring a 4-1 mark
to Hornets hive tomorrow
night. It will be Taylor Mc-
Grew Night as the long-
time Athletic Director and
coach is honored. I do not
know anyone more de-
serving of any recognition
that Taylor McGrew re-
ceives. What a wonderful
person Coach McGrew is
and you can just see the
respect he receives from
all the student body as
well as the faculty. He has
been a friend to me since I
have covered Hornet
sports over the two plus.
years. Thanks Coach Mc-
Grew for all you have
done for this sports writer.
Wow! Basketball season


is not too far away as
teams can take to the prac-
tice floor in three weeks.
Both girls and boys teams
should be solid this sea-
son.
I did not get any stats,
but the girls volleyball
team posted a 3-0 win
over Hawthorne last
Thursday night. Coach
Sonya Land has her team
playing well. The Lady
Hornets played their last
five regular season games
on the road. District tour-
nament play begins Octo-
ber 22-25 at Bell.
Coach Jimmy Blanken-
ship's junior varsity foot-
ball team will travel to
Branford tonight for a
road game. Kickoff time is
scheduled for 7 p.m.
We had a lot of upsets
this past Saturday in col-
lege football. There is so
much more parity in the
game today. It is hard for
one team to dominate the
rankings anymore. Florida
falling to Auburn was a
big surprise.
Until next week, good
sports everyone and be
good sports. Make church
going a habit on Sunday.


Both players would love
to play at the next level,
hoping an opportunity to
do so will present itself. "I
would love to play college
football," said Kris, "Now, I
don't know if I will get that
chance. What would be
great is if we both could go
to the same school togeth-
er."
"I am going to do the best
I can here this year," said
Kyle, "and if the opportuni-
ty comes to play at the next
level that would be great. I
know I would love to play
college football."
While most mothers are
fearful of the game of foot-
ball, both Kris and Kyle
said that was not the case
with their mother. "She
liked football and said go
out and hit them as hard as
you can. Dad felt the same


way.
They have been big sup-
porters of both of us and
they have encouraged us
over the last four years,"
said Kris. "They come to all
the games and has been a
big encouragement to us."
Cory Smith, a friend to
both athletes, was not able
to play football this season
and both Kris and Kyle
miss seeing him on the
field. "If we were to dedi-
cate our season to anyone it
would be to Cory," said
Kyle.
"He wants to play so bad-
ly but he cannot because of
battling cancer. He is going
through a lot more than we
are."'
' Kyle says he has enjoyed
being part of the student
body at Lafayette over the
past four years. "Most of my


friends play football. The
community has really got-
ten behind us but they are
great supporters every sea-
son," he said. "I think they
said when we played at
Dixie we had nearly two
thousand fans at the game.
That is awesome."
Kyle saw one of his goals
for the remaining season be-
come a reality when the
Hornets posted a 27-14 win
over Chiefland. "I would
love to beat Chiefland," said
Kyle when asked his goals
for the remainder of the sea-
son. We hadn't beaten them
in a long time. My goals is
to win the rest of our games
and go to the playoffs."
Both players said playing
for Coach Pearson has been
a fun thing, although he
may expect more from'
them because of being relat-


ed. "I think sometimes he
rougher on us because he is
our cousin," said Kyle. "But
he is a great coach and it
has been fun playing for
him over the past four
years."
"Yeah, it has been fun
playing for him. We have
been playing for him since
the ninth grade," said Kris.
"We hunt together and go
to church together. It has
been a little rough at times
because we are family. He
treats us the same as he
does everyone else. Some
times it seems he a little
rougher on us. But I don't
complain."
Kris and Kyle Pearson:
students, athletes and four
year starters. Both are a
credit to any team they play
on. Both should go far in
life.


Hornet's


Continued From Page 6A

The Hornets defense dug deeper into the trenches in the
fourth quarter on a three-and-out for Chiefland. After a
wobbling punt by the Indians, the Hornets got the football
at the Cheifland 31-yard line and it took only two plays for
Hempstead to hit Reid with a 17-yard completion with
10:07 to play. Herring added the extra point for a 27-14
Hornet lead.
Chiefland found little of anything against the Hornets
defense over the final 10 minutes of the game running but
seven offensive plays. The Hornets took control of the foot-
ball with just over four minutes remaining and ran the
dock out on the Indians. During the possession, the Hor-
nets were facing a fourth and four situation. But Hemp-
stead and Reid hooked up.again for a 34-yard completion,
keeping the ball in the Hornets hands.
Coach Garland saw the win as a huge one for the Hor-
nets but also as a confidence builder for the remaining reg-
ular season schedule. "A win like this one can only pump
up our confidence," he said. "We still have some things to
work on with our specialty teams. But now I believe these
guys really believe in each other. This was not an individ-
ual win but a great team win."
Chiefland drew first blood in the first quarter by taking a
6-0 lead with 3:39 to play in the opening quarter. Lafayette
could not move the ball and was forced to punt. Brewer
had the punt attempt blocked and the fall fell into the
hands of Sheffield who raced 52 yards for the touchdown.
The Indians added the two-point conversion for a 14-0
start. Lafayette got on the scoreboard on the very next play
when McIntyre returned the kickoff 64-yards for the Hor--
nets first touchdown with 1:01 to play in the first quarter.
Herring added the PAT for a 14-7 game.
Hempstead showed why he was a two-time All-Stater
completing eight of 19 passes for 103-yards and three
touchdowns. Reid had five receptions for 88-yards and he
scored two of the three TD's. Milton had one catch for 8-
yards while Anderson had the big reception for 4-yards
and one touchdown. Out of the backfield, Kyle Pearson
had one catch for 3-yards.
Pearson led the Hornets defense with nine tackles and
three assists (unofficial). Byrd came up with eight first hits
and four assists. Kris Pearson finished with five tackles and
one assist. J.D. Richardson came up with four tackles and
Jeff Miara had three first hits and one assist. Alan Driver
had a quarterback sack as did Joey Watson.


Hornet coach Joey Pearson was elated with his teams
win and particularly their second half performance. "Of-
fensively we really struggled in the first half," he said. "But
our defense kept us in it. They kept fighting. We gave
them good field position with problems in the punting
game. They got a couple of scores early. But our defense
played good throughout. We stayed patient. Offensively,
we got some short fields with turnovers they had. It
seemed the momentum swung our way. Really, our confi-
dence gained and they could not stop us the rest of the
way." '
Pearson and his staff knew coming into Cheifland it
was going to be a physical game against a tough oppo-
nent. But he said his team has played a brutal schedule
in the first half of the season. "We have already been
through a brutal schedule. Trenton, Keystone and
Chiefland. I feel right now we are relatively healthy. We
have a lot of momentum going into our district schedule.
We play our rival, Branford (tomorrow night) and they
are 4-1. They are rolling. It should be an exciting game
next week with Taylor McGrew Appreciation Night. We
are excited about it."
The Hornet mentor lauded the play of his players as a
team effort but took time to praise the play of certain play-
ers. "Tonight, if you look at the different things that hap-
pen," he said, "Chris Padgett recovers a fumble and Joey
Watson with a big sack, Jon Anderson with a touchdown,
J.D. Richards with a big carry. Throughout the game we
had different guys who made big plays. Tonight it was a
total team effort from one end to the other."
The Hornets will return to the gridiron tomorrow night
hosting district rival Branford (4-1). Former Athletic Direc-
tor Taylor McGrew will be honored as well.

cellent field position. It
was all Sellers as he carried
the ball into the end zone

VA reaches out

to former

prisoners of war

Department enlists public's help
in contacting former POWs


Do you know any former
prisoners of war (POW) or
their family members? If so,
the Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) needs your
help,
VA is once again reaching
out to former prisoners of
war not currently using VA
benefits and services, urging
them to contact the Depart-
ment to find out if they are
eligible for health care, dis-
ability compensation and
other services.
"One of VA's highest pri-
orities is meeting the needs
of former prisoners of war,"
said Secretary of Veterans
Affairs Jim Nicholson.
"They are extraordinary
men and women who have
endured captivity, suffered
extreme deprivation and
sacrificed their own freedom
to preserve the freedom of
all Americans."
VA estimates more than
25,000 former prisoners of
war are alive today. VA is
trying to contact the remain-
ing POW's not receiving any
benefits "or health care
through an outreach pro-.
gram that includes asking
citizens to pass the word to
veterans they know.
VA also extends a helping
hand to the surviving spous-
es and family members of
former POWs, who may be
eligible for certain benefits
and services.
In- recent years, VA has
expanded benefits to all for-


mer POWs with strokes and
certain common heart dis-
eases. More than a dozen
other diseases were already
covered.
The government's effort to
inform former POWs about
improvements in benefits
faces a particular hurdle
with older veterans who
may not have been in touch
with VA for decades.
A majority of former
POWs are veterans of World
War II, and their military
service was before.the use of
Social Security numbers as
military "service numbers."
As a result, it is difficult for
VA to track down. those
who have not been in con-
tact with the Department in
recent years.
During recent years
through a nationwide out-
reach campaign that includ-
ed direct mailings and the
help of news media and vet-
erans organizations, VA has
added hundreds of former
POWs to its compensation
rolls, people who had not
previously been receiving
benefits to which they were
entitled.
If you know a former
POW, please ask him or her
to contact VA at 1-800-827-
1000. Details about benefits
and services available to for-
mer POWs and family mem-
bers are available at
http: //www.vba.va.gov/bl

eling south from Fowlers
Bluff in a 12-foot alu-
minum johnboat. Norris

out of the water in front of
the boat. Norris said he
swerved, and both men
were ejected into the wa-
ter.
Personnel from the FWC,
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice, U.S. Coast. Guard and

Sheriffs Offices assisted in
the search-and-rescue op-
erations.

aminers Office to deter-
mine cause of death.

cident.

Rick Gage of Go Tell Min-
istries, is in the early stages
of planning. Rick Gage will
be the featured speaker, on
Tuesday, October 9 at 7
p.m. at the Columbia High
School Auditorium in Lake
City. A group of dedicated
lay people and concerned
business owners of the
North Florida area have be-
gun preparing for an antici-

van of Mt. Carmel Baptist
Church and Pastor Lonnie
Johns of Christ Central
Ministries are issuing a spe-
cial invitation to all local
churches and pastors to at-
tend with as many of their
congregation as possible.


They are asking business
owners, community leaders
and members to attend and
work side-by-side to impact
positive changes in our
communities. Come and be
a part of putting "feet" to
concerns about the perils
that today's growing com-'
munities face.
In 1986, Gage walked
away from a promising ca-
reer coaching football at
Texas Tech University and
surrendered his life to full-
time evangelistic ministry.
A few years later he be-
came the founder of Rick
Gage Ministries. He has
been conducting evangelis-
tic events around the world
and has seen tens of thou-
sands make commitments

Air exchanger provides



relief for asthma sufferers


Kelly Jones has had to deal with the wheezing and
shortening of breath from her asthma condition ever since
she was born. Unfortunately she is not alone as more than
20 per cent of American families have a family member
who suffers respiratory problems or allergies.

Each year, more and more people are being treated for
asthma and allergy symptoms. It is no coincidence that
asthma.cases have increased by more than 100% over the
past 20 years.

The fact is worsening asthma cases have coincided with
the emergence of the indoor air quality problem. As the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns, indoor
air quality can be 100 times worse than outdoor pollution.

Continuous exposure to contaminants and allergens, like
dust, dust mites, hair and pet dander, and cigarette smoke
can cause a variety of symptoms such as headaches, chronic
fatigue and eye, nose or throat irritation. It can also
aggravate asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems.

Faced with her worsening condition, Kelly's mother,
Laura Jones, looked into finding an indoor air quality
solution for her seven-year-old daughter. Rather than


buying a portable air purifier, Jones chose a more complete global
solution: a Venmar air exchanger with HEPA filtration, after doing
some research and consulting with his family doctor.

"The air exchanger enables us to control the quality of the air in
every room in the house, 'not just certain rooms, by filtering and
adding fresh air throughout our home," added Jones.

But there's more to an air exchanger than simply changing the
air, explained Gerry Gagnon, Product & Market Manager for
Venmar Ventilation. "It reduces excess humidity by expelling
moisture-filled air outdoors several times a day. This can help
eliminate mould and bacteria-friendly environments, make
unpleasant odours disappear and protect buildings from humidity-
related damage."

According to Gagnon the best way to.achieve optimal air quality
in your home is to use HEPA filtration with antimicrobial
protection, combined with air exchange. Together, they create the
ultimate system for people who want a clean and healthy
environment. HEPA filters capture 99.97% of all dust and particles
as small as 0.3 micron (1 human hair = 150 microns). They can
help reduce allergy symptoms, asthma, recurring colds and
persistent coughs. In fact, HEPA filters are so effective; they're
used in hospital operating rooms and now in the Jones home.

WAITING FOR THE ANSWER


By Pam Campbell

S/ ow many of you like to wait? Waiting is
not something that most people seem to
Enjoy doing. In this life we wait for many
things, simple things like the traffic light
to change, the cashier to hurry in the gro-
cery store, we may wait for someone to get ready, for a
teacher to notice us when we are raising our hand, or for our
boss to acknowledge a job well done or maybe we are just
waiting for a much anticipated package to arrive in the
mail.

Of course there are other kinds of waiting, like waiting
for the results of a medical test, waiting for a grade on a im-
portant paper you wrote for school, or many other things
that need a solution. Mark 10:27 says "And Jesus looking
upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with
God: for with God all things are possible." Whatever you
may be waiting for, whatever you may need, whatever
looks .impossible, remember with God all things are possi-
ble. As you wait, stand on his promise, he will never fail
you, never.

I know that many times people are waiting for answers to
so many questions, like when, how, why, what and where?
There are always times when people have to wait on an-
swers to big things, like should they move, or should they
take a trip, what should they do to help someone else, ques-
tions, questions and more questions. Life is full of them and
for most of us we must wait for the answers. Is patience
your best quality? I know that it is not mine, I always want
to know how in the world things are going to turn out, wait-
ing is always a challenge. God has this to say about pa-
tience. Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he
turned to me and heard my cry."

Sometimes people work really hard and think that the
waiting is finally over and the answer has come, only to
find out that the wait has really just begun. Have you ever
thought that things were finally turning out the way you
thought they should? How many times in life have you tried
to try to fix a problem and then found that you could not fix
it.

A friend of mine told me that her mom always gives her
this advice. "He (God) has to remind me that he is in charge
and all things will work best for the glory of God." My
mom says to me sometimes that I must seem to forget that
God already knows about the problem I am trying to fix.
God reminds us in Matthew 6:8 that he really does know
what we need. "Do not be like them, for your Father knows
what you need before you ask him."

Sometimes good people work very hard to get ahead, they
do all the things that they know they are supposed to do and
things start heading in the right direction. Then all of a sud-
den, it seems to fall apart. Through no fault of their own the
answer seems to disappear. Where do you turn when things
fall apart, when the things you have worked so hard for
don't seem to be enough? Many times in this world we will
try to do the right thing and we will listen to advice from
those we believe hold the correct answers, but sometimes
the only answer we should be looking for is God's.

Have you ever watched people that you love dearly face

sorrow, or a big disappointment in their lives? You want to
help them you want to make it all better, like a mommy or
daddy that fixes something for their little child, only you
find that most of the sorrows and big disappointments of
life are not so easily solved as say, fixing a child's broken
toy, or comforting a little one from a bad dream. Not being
able to help makes you feel so sad, so useless, it is like a
feeling of hopelessness. You search for answers, some way
to change the circumstance, to fix whatever the sorrow or
problem.

Maybe someone that you love is lonely and you try to
spend as much time as you possibly can with them, you
take them with you wherever you can, but yet you alone are
not enough, they need someone more. You try to look for
someone to befriend them, for things for them to go to, or
things to do, you work to do more with them, but you feel
so sad, as you know that they are still lonely. You love them
so much and want to take their sorrow, their sadness and
loneliness away, but you know that only God can. God tells
us in Isaiah 43:4 "Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall
answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am..." You
see the Lord is there with them, and as they call on him, he
will help them in their loneliness, and supply all that they
need.

You watch someone that you love worry over many
things, jobs, health, family, finances, and more. They seem
to have more work to do than any one person should have,
so many responsibilities and never enough time, they de-
serve time to relax, but are always busy, working hard,
helping others, doing all they can. You try to encourage
them, try to help with what you can, but really there is not
too much that you yourself can do. You can give them your
love and support and pray that is enough.

You watch someone that you love work very hard for
many years, they are very talented, they succeed in the hard
work that.they do, if they are like someone that I have been
watching they never complain, they are always the one to
make someone else smile, the one that finds good in what-
ever situation they may be in, they deserve the very best
and yet, many times the best is not what they receive. It
breaks your heart because you love them so very much,
you want to make things right, to make things work the
way they should, and yet the more that you try the more
you find that all you can really do is be there as the en-
couragement and the support that they really need. You feel
so helpless, your mind seems to go off in every direction,
not able to concentrate, you just want to find an answer to
fix the problem, to make things turn out the way that they
should be for this one that you love. Here again we need to
remember to let God fix the problem.

Maybe you worry about your health, about the aches or
pains that bother you so, you try to forget about them, to
work through the pain, to tell yourself it is all okay, when
at times you can't help wonder, is something wrong? James
5:14-16 "Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders
of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in
the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will
make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he
has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins
to each other and pray for each other so that you may be
healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and ef-
fective." If you think you may be sick, or you just don't

feel well, listen to God's word and do as he says.

Many times the stresses that we all face in our lives, es-
pecially worry can cause us to feel like we may be ill, or
may actually cause us to become ill, but sometimes the
symptoms may just be the result of the stress and we may
really be just fine. No matter what the problem, no matter
what the situation that someone you or someone that you
love is going through, all your worry and all your fear will
not fix the problem. For all the times that we are worrying
about ourselves or people that we love, we need to spend
that time and energy in prayer. In Matthew 6:34 it says
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow
will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its
own." When we worry, we are not trusting God with the
problem and we are stressing ourselves out even more.
Nahum 1:7 says "The LORD is good, a refuge in times of
trouble. He cares for those who trust in him," You see the
Lord is our place of refuge when we are having troubles, he
is good and he always cares about us as we trust in him.

Maybe your worry today is about someone's health,
someone that you care about very much. You see that per-
son getting sick more often, you see they don't get well as
fast, you worry that they are not doing well. You want to
make them well, but you know that only God can do such
things. So you must remember to pray for them. When we
get fearful, when we wonder what to do read God's word,
Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of
whom shall I be afraid?"

Maybe the answers that you are waiting for concern your
whole life, your very being, you may not feel that you can
go on another minute without an answer. Listen to what
your heavenly father is saying to you in Jeremiah 33:3
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great
and mighty things, which thou knowest not." You see God
has greater plans for you than anything that you could pos-
sibly:have ever thought about, trust him today and with all
of your tomorrows. ..

Many of us really need to ask God for his wisdom. Peo-
ple are always wanting to know when will the answer
come? We wait and wonder, and many times we wonder
why? Why did this have to happen, or why doesn't God an-
swer me now? James 1:5 Is a wonderful scripture showing
us how to have God's wisdom. "If any of you lacks wis-
dom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all with-
out finding fault, and it will be given to him."

When you are waiting and it seems that the answer will
never come, you will find hope in Psalms 42:11. "Why art
thou cast down, o my soul? And why art thou disquieted
within me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my countenance, and my God." and
also in Psalm 31:24 "Be of good courage, and he shall
strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord."

When we wonder why, when, where, what, or how, re-
member that God has it all in his control when we follow
in his path, trust in him to answer. "Trust in the Lord with
all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 Keep waiting, keep trusting, God al-
ways answers.

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER

WAITING


By Pam Campbell
I wonder how many kids love to wait? Do you love to wait for your turn when you
are playing a game? How are you at waiting to see if you are the winner in a contest?
Do you get impatient waiting for Christmas to come? If your teacher doesn't see you
raising your hand, do you get upset if you have too wait long? Do you like to wait in
long lines? If you go somewhere with your mom and dad and they are talking, do you
ever get tired of waiting for them to get done? Is waiting fun? You probably don't think.
that waiting is fun, most people do not like to wait. Do you sometimes think that noth-
ing is ever going to turn out the way you want it to? Sometimes maybe you pray for
something or somebody and the answer seems like it will never come. God speaks to
us in the Bible in Mark 10:27 "And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is im-
possible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." Whatever you may be
waiting for, whatever you may need, whatever looks impossible, remember with God
all things are possible. As you wait, and you pray, stand on his promise, he will never
fail you,. never.

I imagine most of you kids have asked either your parents, teacher, or someone else
the questions; why, when, what, how, and where? You know, why do I have to do that?
Are we there yet? There are all kinds of questions in this world that we live in. Most of
them have an answer, but sometimes we must learn to wait for the answer. We have to
learn to have patience. God tells us about waiting patiently in Psalm 40:1 I waited pa-
tiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry."
Have you ever thought that things were finally turning out the way you thought they
should? How many times in life have you tried to try to fix a problem and then found
that you could not fix it. Sometime's kid's have problems with their schoolwork or their
grades, or maybe they don't live in a happy home, they might not even have a real
home. Many times kids try to fix things on their own, maybe try to make their grades
better, but they really need help, or maybe they try to make their home happier by be-
ing extra good because they think that will make everyone else be nicer and get along,
but the truth is, only God can fix the problems in our lives no matter how old we are.
He can send the right help to us or to the people that need it. God is the answer to every-
thing and we need to learn to wait for his answer.
A friend of mine told me.that her mom always gives her this advice. "He (God) has
to remind me that he is in charge and all things will work best for the glory of God."
My mom says to me sometimes that I must seem to forget that God already knows about
the problem I am trying to fix." Do you forget that God wants to fix your problems for
you and that he already knows all about them?
Sometimes good people work very hard to get ahead, they do all the things that they
know they are supposed to do. Then all of a sudden, it seems to fall apart. What do you
do when things that you are trying to do fall apart? Do you just give up, or do you keep
trying. and pray and ask for the answer about what to do? *
Have you ever watched people that you love have something happen in their life that
has made them very sad? You want to help them, you want to make it all better. You
search for some way to fix the problem. You need to remember that God is the one with
the answer, ask him and wait for him to show you what to do.
Maybe someone that you love is lonely and you try to spend as much time as you pos-
sibly can with them. Maybe you see another child that seems lonely, it would mean so
much to them if you smiled at them. You see the Lord is there with them, and as they call
on him, he will help them in their loneliness and he may even have you be a friend to
them.
Sometimes you may see someone that you love worrying about many things. You can
give show them your love and pray for them. Maybe you can offer to help them with
some of their work, or give them a hug to let them know you appreciate all their work,
You watch someone that you love work very hard, they never complain, they are al-
ways the one to make someone else smile, the one that
finds good in whatever situation they may be in, they re-
ally are hoping for things to turn out sot th ey can help
others, they need things to work out right. You wonder I W "6 .T 1
how can I make it happen? Here again, we need to re-
member to let God fix the problem.
Maybe you worry about getting sick or hurt, or someone Live Oak
in your family getting sick or hurt. The Bible tells us to k
pray.
Do you ever worry about things? When we worry, we
are not trusting God with the problem and we are stress-
ing ourselves out even more. Nahum 1:7 says The
- LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for
those who trust in him," You see the Lord is our place of
refuge when we are having troubles, he is good and he al-
ways cares about us as we trust in him.
When you are waiting and it seems that the answer will
never come, you will find hope in Psalm 31:24 "Be of
good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye
that hope in the Lord." Dr. Jimmy Deas, Pasto
When we wonder why, when, where, what, or how, re-
member that God has it all in his control when we follow
in his path, and trust in him to answer. "Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own under-
standing. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall C U T
direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 Keep waiting, keep
trusting, God always answers everyone, even kids! (386) 3

know what a 1/2 bath is, but '
I'm not sure what would --
constitute a ".1" bath. At
40 years old, I shouldn't be
that far out of the loop.
Cash: We can understand your con-
fusion in reading the ads. If a 1/2 bath
has a sink and a toilet, what's in a ". 1"
bath.. .a hand towel?
Carry: Advertising abbreviations
can sometimes be difficult to interpret.
When people pay by the word or letter,
they like to keep it short. Although, I
think classified ads are far easier to


understand than most cell phone text
messages.
Cash: UGTBK. It's so EZY!
WUCIWUG. (You've got to be kidding.
It's so easy! What you see is what you
get.)
Carry: Fortunately, the notations
you're seeing are much simpler to
explain than that.
Cash: A half bath, as you know, is
used to describe a partial bathroom and
can be written as "2V" or "2.5".
However, as houses become larger in
size, the notation doesn't account for
more than a single half-bathroom.
Instead, some people choose to use a


period to separate the number of full-
baths and the number of half-baths.
Carry: In other words, 2.1 would be
read as 2 full-baths and 1 half-bath.
Likewise, 3.2 would be 3 full-baths and
2 half-baths. Maybe it would have
'been a better idea to use a dash or a
colon to avoid any confusion. But as
you've probably seen in real estate ads,
things sometimes need to be deciphered.
Cash: For instance "Cute", "Cozy"
or "Charming" usually describes a
small house. Or better, "Great
Commuter Location" really means "a
beautiful apartment right next to the
train tracks"!

Keep it Short
Complicated abbreviations used to be
mostly found in classified ads.
However, with the popularity of the cell
phone, text messaging has taken short-
hand to a new level. To help you get
through the encryption, here's the 411
on some of the more popular ones.
BLNT ... Better luck next time.
CULA ... See you later alligator.
IDK .......I don't know.
N1 ......... Nice one.
NVM .... Never mind.
P911 ......Parents coming into room alert.
UW ....... You're welcome.
ZUP ...... What's up?
:-($)....... Put your money where your
mouth is.

Living in Style
As the sizes of homes increase, so do
the amenities that go with them. While
many families survive with a single
bathroom, houses today are built with
many more. According to the U.S.
Census Bureau, more than 95% of all
new homes (nearly 1,570,000) built in
2006 have 2 or more bathrooms. The
statistics vary by region, but the north-
east seems to lead the nation with nearly
68% of their new homes having at least
2'/2 bathrooms.

Private Matters
MIN recent experience at an open- I
house for a commercial proper
proves \ hy I like private restrooms
I was in the public restroom wash-
ing m, hands %when a woman came in
to use one of the stalls. A moment
later she spoke out to me. "So how,
are vou doing?" I .as taken aback.
but it seemed impolite not to answ er.
"Just line," I replied
Then .he asked. "HoIW's our
walk-through going"'
"Prettr good." I again answered
hesitantl.
That's when I realized I was the
strange one. From behind the stall
door she said. "I'll haxe to call \ou
back. Some woman keeps talking to
me." (Thiaoks io Samira J.

,opened Mayhem Games in Traverse City. Photo: Record-Eagle/Jan-Michael Stump


By Tom Carr
CNHI News Service
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -
Mark Hoban has enjoyed role-
playing and tabletop war
,games for years. Then, one
:day, he opened a shop that
deals with his passion. Hoban,
38, owns and operates
Mayhem Games in Traverse
.City, where he sells the games
and people come in to play
-,war games on some of the
tables he has set up there."
,This is as.much a social
hangout as it is a store," Hoban
said. "But that's what it's all
:about." He and others are
living what many people
dream about: turning a hobby
'into a job." Helping people
,with their hobbies has just
been a lot of fun," he said.
Rich Bannatyne knows the
feeling. He sold and fixed
computers before he opened
Nothing But Sports, a card and
collectibles shop, about six
years ago." I'm a little skinnier
than I was six years ago, but,
I'm happier," he said. "You get
to a certain point in your life
where money is not
everything," he said, adding
;that his other job was "all-
,consuming." Bannatyne started
out as a kid collecting cards
"and had owned sports
,memorabilia shops before, but
,also worked other jobs at the
same time. The sports
collectible industry has a
,reputation as appealing mostly
Jto adults who spend big money
'on it these days. But
JBannatyne said he wants to
,make sure he offers items
children can afford, so they
may grow to love the hobby as
|much as he does. He
,encourages parents to let their
kids do with their baseball
"cards what they want and not
feel they have to treat them
like fine china." I see kids who
can't see over the counter
when they started coming here
,and now they're 6-foot-4," he
said. Like Hoban, he mostly
enjoys talking to his
customers." These people
know within a short period of
time I love what I do," he said.
On the other hand, a hobby
doesn't always remain a hobby
once it becomes a job. Mike
Luther, who owns Luther's
Pheasant Hunting in Mesick,
,used to hunt pheasants. He
;started raising them for himself
and friends to release and hunt
'in the early 1980s and then
started selling them to other


hunt clubs. Now he just raises
them for the people who hunt
at his own preserve. After
doing it for so long, he'd rather
hunt other birds and game
animals in his free time." ,
Having a pheasant jump up in
front of me and cackle, there's
not the excitement anymore,"
he said. Luthert also raises
whitetail deer for clients to
release and hunt. While he still
enjoys deer hunting, he doesn't
hunt those he raises. And he
still gets a kick out of watching
others hunt his birds."
Watching these people getting
excited, that's what's fun,"
Luther said. Bill Winowiecki,
who owns Watta Bite Charter
Fishing in Glen Arbor, said it's
essential for him-to love what
he's doing when he takes
people out on the boat." The
guys who are enjoying it have
happy customers," he said.
Winowiecki started-his
business while being laid off
from a manufacturing plant.
He's working there now and
fitting the charter service in
around that job." You can't
make a living out of charter
fishing unless you're one of
the big guys," he said. Chris
Miles of Traverse City makes
money on two of his hobbies,
charter fishing and stringed-
instrument repair. He runs
Miles Fishing Charters and
Miles Vintage Instruments, as
well as. working as a
warehouse foreman for another
employer." Sometimes it gets a
little hectic," he said. "If I
work all day, I don't always
want to go into the garage and
work (on instruments), but I
do." Miles is mostly self-
taught in instrument repair,
having started as a child doing
things for people he knew like
replacing pearl inlay that had
come out of a guitar or other
instruments. Now, when he
gets stumped by a job, he can
turn to the Internet and watch
instructional videos or contact
other experts. Hoban also
started playing war games and
role-playing games when he
was about 12.He knew he
wanted to make a business out
of it "as soon as I was old
enough to want to do
something when I grew up,"
he said. Hoban has owned his
business for less than a year
and said it's "scary"
sometimes having his life tied
up in a business." But loving
what I do gives me the courage
to deal with these things," he


said. "It's very nice to enjoy
the thought of going to work
every day."
