Working all day against in-
clement weather on Wednes-
day, Jan. 16, Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office personnel, assist-
ed by an underwater search'and
rescue team from the Taylor
County Sheriff's Office,
searched a small section of the
Suwannee River near the Hal
Adams boat ramp in Lafayette
County for a 2004 black and red
half-ton pickup that went miss-
ing since 4:32 p.m. the previous
day. Despite the difficult chal-
lenige they faced, everyone in-


volved refused to give up until
-it was.successfully recovered,
A truck'driver and resident of
Live Oak, William :Thomas
Crone, noticed something pecu-
liar drifting downstream as he
was crossing Hal Adams on
Tuesday. "I thought at first I'd
been driving too long," Crone
said.
Minutes after one of the two
divers entered the murky water
with a waterproof flashlight, the
pickup, was located approxi-
mately 20 feet from the surface,
according to one of the divers
who found the vehicle.
The dive team made several
attempts to raise the pickup to

Hamlin to bring his tow truck in
order to try to pull the pickup
with a long cable. It was wedged
tight between several rocks, ac-
cording to the dive team.
As Hamlin was tightening the
cable, it broke and another one
had to be attached. A second at-
tempt was made and the pickup
slowly made its way to the:sur-
face. As the barrels began to ap-

"Is it possible to really love someone, but not trust
them?" Absolutely in relationships, we often confuse
love with trust but the reality is that you can love
someone deeply and not trust them at the very same
time. Love is a free gift that you give someone, even if
they don't deserve it. Trust is earned it must be built,
and often in relationships it gets damaged or com-
pletely broken and must be rebuilt for the relationship
to survive.
Authors and Christian psychologists Cloud and
Townsend explain, "Trust is the ability to be totally
real, authentic, and unguarded with (another). It
means being able to bring all parts of yourself, good
and bad, strong and weak, without fear or condemna-
tion or judgment. This is a deep level of relationship
to attain, and most of us are painfully aware that tak-
ing the risk to trust someone at some point in our life
has cost us plenty. This causes us to raise our guard
and keep it high so that we don't risk experiencing
that kind of pain again. In fact, that is usually our
first response when trust takes a hit: we promise our-
selves we will not ever let that happen again
Trust can be broken in many ways: saying one
thing and doing another, white lies, financial betrayal,
broken promises, unfulfilled commitments, sexual un-
faithfulness at any level and being inconsistent as a

person. When we cannot trust some-
one, we no longer know who they are
we lose the ability to depend on them
to be there for us, whether in one area
or many" Even worse, when the be-
trayal comes from someone close, from
ione we hlaveexposed rivate knowl-
edge of-ourselves to, that betrayal caus-
es deep wounds.
Trust issues cannot be ignored for the
sake of "keeping peace." Rebuilding trust is hard work
and it means taking a risk, but if both sides are willing,
it is worth the effort. Here are a few steps to help re-
pair the damage:
Face the reality about what caused the broken trust.
If you are the source of the problem, admit your fault.
You cannot heal or repair that which is kept hidden or
denied. If you have been betrayed, admit your feel-
ings to the other person. Confirm your love for them,
but express your need for this to be addressed.
Take a broken trust seriously. Trying to brush it off
as unimportant only serves to deepen the wound... a
person with a broken heart cannot be convinced it is
no big deal any more than one with a broken neck.
Let the one you love know how much you regret
what you did. In the healing process the one who was
betrayed will need to be reassured of the other per-
son's commitment to them. Give that reassurance, not
defensive retaliation ("How many times are you going
to bring that up?"). Especially in marriage, the offend-
er may need to make himself or herself accountable to
the other person in order to rebuild that which has
been broken.
Give the process time as you take action to change.
The Bible says in Luke 17:3, "If your brother (husband,
friend, etc.) sins, rebuke (confront) him, and if he re-
pents, forgive him." The word repent here means to
take actionAt change, not simply saying I'm sorry and
expecting the other person to move on as if nothing
Happened. : .. i .
.Trust isa vital element i our relationships whef it
is broken, it's as if the foundation of your home is -.
cracked-it must be repaired or it will no longer be a
desirable place to live. The relationships in your life
are worth doing the hard work to build and rebuild
trust they are deeply attached;to our hearts and our
hearts really do matter!

Death is "separation."
Physical death is separation

separation (Romans 6:23).
It is the just remuneration
for our sin. Adam and Eve, David H. Ma

which they would have

mans 3:23) all must die be
er eternally separated from the
Father (Romans 6:23). To
avoid the consequences of
sin Jesus said, ...you must be born again
(John 3:3). This is accomplished by ac-
cepting the Truth The Lord Jesus Christ
died to pay your sin debt (John 1:12, 13).
Have you been "born again?"

There seems to be a lot of
misconceptions involving
the real estate market.
Even though the market
has slowed down it is still
moving at a moderate rate.
There are more property
closings today than there
were five years ago.


Interest. rates are continuing to fall and now is
one of the best times to find a property at a
great value due to an excess supply of
properties on the market. Real estate is still
one of the few investments that will constantly
increase in value over time. Call today to set
up an appointment to find out what your
property is worth or to have a future
investment tract or home located for you.

Hingson announces for State Attorney


Continued From Page 1A

ing State Attorney Jerry Blair in August.
"I am excited to make it official,"
Hingson said. "I will be a candidate for
State Attorney, and I am running to
win!"
The State Attorney is the elected chief
criminal prosecutor, and Hingson is
running in a seven county judicial cir-
cuit, the Third Judicial Circuit, which
includes Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee and Tay-
lor counties.
Hingson grew up on a family farm in
Luraville, a small farming community
located between Live Oak and Mayo.
Hingson is a graduate of Suwannee
High School. Shortly after graduation,
Hingson was elected State President of
the FFA (Future Farmers of America),
and the following year he was elected
to serve the nearly half a million mem-
bers of the FFA as National Vice Presi-
dent. Hingson's FFA service took him
to 40 of the 50 states, Japan and China
promoting agriculture and honing his
leadership and speaking skills.
After his FFA service, Hingson en-
rolled in the University of Florida
where he obtained his Bachelor of Sci-
ence with Honors in Agricultural Eco-
nomics. At UF, Hingson was inducted
into the university's leadership hon-
orary, Florida Blue Key, and was an ac-
tive member of the Alpha Gamma Rho
(AGR) agricultural fraternity.
Hingson attended law school at the
Mississippi College School of Law in
Jackson, Mississippi where he earned
an academic scholarship and graduated
in the top 10% of his law school class.
In law school, Hingson was elected
Chief Justice of the Honor Court and
was on the law school's Moot Court


Board.
I-Fngson worked his first two years
as a prosecutor for State Attorney Bill
Cervone in the 8th Judicial Circuit
where Hingson handled juvenile, mis-
demeanor and felony cases, and did
stints in the Alachua, Levy and
Gilchrist offices. In 2002, Hingson was
able to move home when Jerry Blair
hired him as an Assistant State Attor-
ney in the 3rd Judicial Circuit. Hing-
son's first assignment as a prosecutor in
the 3rd Circuit was as the Dixie County
Division Chief in 2002 and 2003.
In 2004, Hingson was promoted to
the Columbia County office to serve as
a Felony Division Chief. Hingson's du-
ties included supervising felony prose-
cutors, as well as handling Special Pros-
ecution cases such as homicide and
child sex offenses. Hingson has been
the lead prosecutor on several high pro-
file cases, including the prosecution of
serial rapist William Williams, and Gre-
gory Platt who was responsible'for the
2004 murder of Florida Highway Pa-
trolman Andy Brown. Both men were
convicted at trial and sentenced to life
in prison without the possibility of pa-
role.
In October of 2007, Hingson took
over as Division Chief of the Taylor
County State Attorney's Office in Perry.
Hingson is responsible for supervising
the office and prosecuting felony of-
fenses, including special prosecution
cases in Taylor County.
Hingson is an active member of the
Rotary Club and is an Agency Coordi-
nator for the Suwannee Valley United
Way. Hingson is a member of the Or-
chard Community Baptist Church in
Lake City. Hingson resides in Colum-
bia County with his wife of 10 years,
Angie, and their two children, Ellie (5)


Florida chooses 3rd state song


Continued From Page 1A

S song, announced Friday
afternoon on Jan. 1, pass-
es muster. "Sen. Tony
Hill (D-Jacksonville) and
Rep. Ed Homan (R-Tam-
pa) will propose a bill be-
fore the Florida Legisla-
ture to name Hinton's
winning entry as the offi-
cial state song. If the bill
is passed, this will be the
S third song for the state," a
spokersperson for Just
S Sing Florida said in a
press release dated Jan.
11:
In an effort to choose a
song that better reflects
what Florida is truly all
about, Floridians made
history in more ways
than one.
Among a large number
of submissions, three
songs rose to dominance
and vied to become Flori-
da's next state song:
"Where the Sawgrass
Meets the Sky," "Florida,
My Home," and, "My
Florida Home." One of
them was chosen to re-
ceive the crown.
After the final vote was
counted, "Where the
Sawgrass Meets the Sky,"
written and composed by
Jan Hinton, was declared
winner during the Flori-
da Music Educators As-
sociation convention in
Tampa.
Hinton not only be-
came the third musician
to have her composition
recognized as Florida's
state song, she also ac-
complished other feats.
She is the first woman
who lives in Florida to
achieve this high honor,
as well as being the sec-
ond Florida resident to
do so. "I feel totally hon-
ored and thrilled," Hin-
ton said in an email inter-


view about winning the
contest.
Since she was eight
years old, Hinton has al-
ways had a strong pas-
sion for music. Originally'
from Birmingham, Eng-
land, according ,to her
website, www.janhinton-
music.com, she received
piano lessons from her
neighbor after her family
moved to Colwyn Bay in
North Wales. As she
grew older,' she began
writing and composing
her own songs.
Later in life as an adult,
Hinton moved with her
family to Florida in 1996.
She returned to the Unit-
ed Kingdom in 2003 in
order to receive a teach-
ing degree from the Uni-
versity of Wales.
,In 2003, she returned to
Florida and began her
teaching career at Pine
Crest School in Ft. Laud-
erdale where she enjoys
teaching music to ele-
mentary school children.
"Where the Sawgrass
Meets the Sky" won ap-
proximately 4,600 of the
total 8,020 votes that
were cast form Dec. 11 to
Jan. 10, according to Just
Sing Florida.
In regards to Stephen
Foster's "Way Down
Upon the Suwannee Riv-
er," Hinton believes it is
an excellent one that re-
flects the period of time
during which it was writ-
ten, but people today do
not use the same termi-
nology.
Hinton is also thankful
her song was chosen
winner, but said she
would rather see "Where
the Sawgrass Meets the
Sky" sung along with
"Way Down Upon the
Suwannee River." "I
know many people don't

treme caution while dri-
ving in the fog. "Fog is a
thin layer of cloud resting
on the ground. It can re-
duce visibility to one-
fourth mile or less, creat-
ing hazardous driving
conditions. When condi-
tions make fog likely, be
prepared to cope at a mo-
ment's notice," FHP said.
Motorists are advised to
use low beam lights, re-


move all distractions, pay
attention to what is hap-
pening all around your
vehicle, keep your eyes
focused on the road
ahead, use line markings
on the edge of the road as
a guide, do not pass any
vehicle while in the fog,
and always use your turn
signal.

wanf it replaced as it is
part of Florida's history,
so why not have the two
songs side by side, the old
and the new, then people
can choose which they
use on different occa-
sions," Hinton said.
Inspiration for writing
the song came after she
learned what Florida is
known for as well as her
love for, the sunshine
state. According to Hin-
ton, one of the first things
that amazed her was the
beauty of the Everglades.
Florida legislators will
not make their final deci-
sion about the song for a
while, according to Hin-
ton. "The next session
runs from March until
May and the final out-
come may not be known
until June or July," Hin-
ton said.

Shane Jenkins and his
wife Barbara, both of Live
Oak, stood nearby as they
watched their pickup be-
ing pulled out of the wa-
ter. "I loved that truck,"
Jenkins said while trying
to hold back tears. They
were at the scene all day
until their pickup was re-
covered. Jenkins stated
they had owned the vehi-
cle for nearly three years.
According to the LCSO
incident report, the pick-
up traveled approximate-
ly 75 yards downstream
from the boat ramp. The
report further indicated
the incident began when
Jenkins attempted to look
for a lost item after get-
ting out of the vehicle at
the bottom of the ramp.
There were no reported
injuries.


and Drew (2).
"I truly believe that our State Attorney
should be a person of integrity, with
proven experience as a prosecutor, and
with a vision to provide long-term lead-
ership for the prosecutor's office." Hing-
son said. "I respectfully ask for your
support. It has been a life-long goal of
mine to be State Attorney, and if elect-


ed, I will work tirelessly to keep our
communities safe and to hold defen-
dants accountable for the crimes they
commit."

School, the University of
Florida, and Florida State

nal of Land Use and En-
vironmental Law in law

individuals, families, and

"Most of all, I have real-
ized that when people are
involved in the legal sys-
tem they want a judge
who is knowledgeable of
the law and fair to all
sides. I promise the peo-
ple of the Third Circuit
that I will always be fair,
impartial and that I will
be courteous and atten-
tive to their problems and
concerns. As a judge, I in-
tend to work as hard as I
have in my practice to en-
sure that I am always
prepared and that justice
is never unreasonably de-
layed for any citizen.

the attorneys in this cir-
cuit have shown their re-
spect for my judgment
and their confidence in
my abilities on five differ-
ent occasions by electing
me to Bar Association re-
sponsibilities. I will work
hard to continue to earn

dence of ALL the people
who reside in the seven

The Lafayette Lady Hornets
soccer team made school history
when they posted back-to-back
victories in the final two games of
the soccer season. It was the first
wins ever for the girls soccer pro-
gram still in its infancy. In anoth-
er first, the school scored their
first ever goals as well.
Lafayette won both outings by
identical scores, 4-0. Coach John
Dekle's ballclub won over a very
good and well coached Fort White
team for their first ever victory.
The match was played at Fort
White. "The girls were really ex-
cited," said Coach Dekle. "It was a
big night for them. They played
well and hard. They really came
together as a team."
Suma Estrada led the Lady Hor-
nets offense against the Lady Indi-
ars of Fort White. She came away
with three assists that led to goals;
Dalia Purcell put Lafayette on the
scoreboard first with a goal in the
first 10 minutes of the game for a
1-0 Lady Hornet lead. Shortly af-
ter the goal, Katie Baldwin made
it 2-0 just before the half.
At the onset of the second half,


Purcell struck again with her sec-
ond goal of the night for a 3-0 Lady
Hornet lead. Cynthia Negrete fin-
ished the scoring for the night with
a goal and the final 4-0 count. "We
had several players who were a big
part of the offense for us," said
Dekle.
The Lady Hornets defense was
led by Marlene Gonzalez who
seemingly dominated the game.
Help came from the likes of Alex
Estrada, Abigail Monroy and Laura
Paz. The Lafayette defense allowed
Fort White only three second half
shots and seven for the entire
game. Jamie Mayton was the goal-
tender for Lafayette. "Jamie played
well for us," said the Lafayette
mentor. "She stopped about every-

For Lafayette High School's band director, Dale
Croft, it was love at first sight between him and the
community of Mayo. Croft, who pastor's a non-de-
nominational church in White Springs, held a similar
position with the Alton Church of God earlier. "That
was my first contact with the community," said the,
schools band director. "I moved to Mayo in 1981 and
I just fell in love with the community."
Croft moved from the Mayo community to pastor
a church in Orlando. '"But I just kept coming back
home," he said. 'For the past 26 years I have moved
back and forth. The last time I moved back here was
14 years ago." Croft will celebrate 40 years in'the
ministry this coming June.
While the ministry has been Croft's main calling,
still he has found time to direct the Lafayette High
School marching band and has done an excellent job.
All the raves from other schools has been heard and
well deserved. Croft said music.has been a big part
of his life. "I was in the band in high school. I was in
bahd in college. I was in a touring choir at one time,"
he explained.
After attending Lee University in Cleveland, Ten-
riessee where he majored in music, Croft felt another
calling. "I started out in music until God's call on my
life. I then switched to a Bible major with a minor in
music," he said. "I never dreamed I would use the
music part that much because the ministry was what
Sit was all.about."
Croft's love for music led him to Lafayette High
School after then band director David Chandler took
position in Lake City after two weeks into last
Year's school session. "They had no orie here to take
his place," said Croft. "It was hard for them to hire
someone with the school year already started."
Desperate for a band director, Croft was asked to
Sfill in temporarily. "They asked me to help them to
; get through the football season," he said. "I agreed to


do so. I fell inlove with the kids and enjoyed what I'
was doing."
Croft stated that pastoring a church and attending
to the needs of the band is time consuming. "I
worked it out and the school was very gracious to be
flexible with my pastoring schedule. It has worked
out fine and I am very happy to be here," said Croft.
The Lafayette band is not the "biggest in the land"
but it certainly could be justly classified as the "best
band in the land!" "Our bandis very, very small. It is.
amazing how small we really are. Actually, march-
iig onto the field this year we had only eleven
horns," said Croft. "That is unheard of. That is not
; hardly considered a marching band."
During the 2006 school year, Croft said he present-
ed the band with a challenge. "I challenge them to


tay away
get all the sound they can out of their horns," he
said.."We may be small but we can be mighty."
Upon accepting the challenge, the Lafayette band
has the sound a "small" marching band should have..
The school has won numerous awards over the past
summer. "Sometimes I get my trumpet out and they
can't stand an old man playing louder than they. I
taught them some techniques inhow to get more
sound from their instruments."
Croft said his trumpet sound "fires them up!"
"They give me 100 percent when they are on the
field. They just go beyond what they should be able
to do. They put their heart and soul into it and give
me all the sound they can. The band drew the praise
of the Interlachen band director who the Hornets
faced in the state football playoffs. The Indiansband
director, who's band was three times the size of
Lafayette, wondered how a small band could pro-
duce such sound.
Croft said he is hoping the numbers will increase
next year. "New band members can join now for
next year if they want to," he said. "They can join but
they cannot perform. I would love to bring in new
students, to get them into the system and the rota-

tion so they will be ready to get
onto the field and perform."
The band mentor suggested that
students have lost interest in being
members of their school's band.
"They have gotten involved in aca-
demics, which is good, or they
have gotten involved in sports. It
has really thinned our numbers
out. But we are seeing a renewed
interest among the students," he
said. "It is starting to "get cool" if
that is a term still used today."
The only time the band really is
visible is during the football sea-
son. "We will also do our pep ral-
lies and two or three parades a
year," he said. "We do have our
annual Christmas concert. Those
are our big events. Wehave not
been a contest band. Now, under
Mr. Chandler they were a contest
band. When your band is as small


as ours you do not do too well in
contests."
Croft said he has put emphasis
on being more of an entertainment
band. "Our one purpose is to bring
joy to the people at the football
games or at the parades," he said.
"We do our best to be really enter-
taining."
The band director confessed that
he is uncertain of what the future
holds at Lafayette High School. "I
am not a contract teacher. I don't
know what the future holds for me
here. That will be up to the school
board," he said. "I really don't
know if they are looking for a full-.
time band director. Right now, I
am not concerned about that. I
want to just focus on my students.
Focus on improving the program.
Seeing the program grow."
He said if per chance he were
"gone tomorrow" he wanted to
hand the new band director a pro-


gram that is good and solid. "I
have made a commitment to do
that," he said. "I would love to stay
around for awhile. I hope I get to
work with these students I have
gotten so attached to. But I will
leave that in God's hands."
Croft and his band members run
a band camp each summer. 'We
usually have one the last full week
of July," he said. "The students
come to the school where they
learn the music for the next march-
ing season. We work on drills and
fundamentals. Just try and get in
shape. It is the hottest part of the
year so it is very demanding of a
student."
One' parent put it this way
when describing the contribution
Croft has made this year. "Dale
Croft is a treasure that should get
a lifetime contract." There are
more than one who feel the same
way.

What would


Jesus do?
(A poem by Yvonne Sullivan)

T'was the week before Super Bowl,
And lo, it is Sunday!
The NFL won't consider a Monday.
Church boards and pastors say "what a shame,
Church must go on! But we'll miss the game."
"No, wait!" someone says, his eyes full of glee;
"Why don't we just rent a big screen T.V.?
We'll advertise to all the game can be seen
Right here at the church, on a giant T.V. screen!"

So the next thing you know, it's time for the game.
The church house fills up, but oh what a shame!
Entertainment has come and worship has gone,
God help us all, but that game must go on!

What if Jesus should visit the church on that night?
Do you think He would be pleased at this terrible
sight?
I'm sure His reaction would be quite the same,
As when He visited the temple
And there caught their game!

Jesus took up a whip and drove them from.there
Reminding them all, "God's house is for prayer!"
So Christian I urge you, let's think this thing
through
Get back to the basics is what we must do.
Remember God's house is a haven of rest
A place to pray and worship at our best.
So next Super Bowl Sunday, don't bring in T.V.
Keep God's House holy,
Just as Jesus said it should be.

In Iraq, Afghanistan, and other for-

and women from every walk of life
have volunteered to put their lives on
the front line so we can continue to en-

enlist as soon as they graduate from
high school, while others wait a few
years later, even after finishing college,
to enter the military. Whether rich or
poor, old or young, they love this coun-
try and proudly say they are willing to
die for any cause worth fighting for
while carrying the torch of freedom,
'the American flag.

The "U"

in Jesus

Before U were thought of or
time:had begun,
God stuck U in the name of
His Son.

And each time U pray, you'll
see it's true,
You can't spell put JesUs and
not include U.

You're a pretty bigpart of His
wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's
why He came.

And His great love for U is
the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUci-
fied.

Isn't it thrilling and splendid-
ly grand
He rose from the dead, with
U in His plan?

The stones split away, the
gold trUmpet.blew,
and this word resUrrection is
spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His
upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing
He just had to mention.

"Go into the world and tell
them it's true
That I love them all Just like
I love U.'"

So many great people are
spelled with a U,
Don't they have a right to
know JesUs too?

It all depends now on what U
will do,
He'd like them to know,
But it all starts with U.


Will YOU pass it on.

Way, has come to a close for 2007.

elect to contribute a portion of their
paycheck to a non-profit agency of
their choice. At the end of each year,:


First Federal matches the total
contribution and awards it to the
selected agencies.
Keith Leibfried, president and CEO;
of First Federal, expressed his
appreciation to all of the agency
representatives for their dedication to
bettering the quality of life in our
communities, to the First Federal
employees for their generosity in
giving back to our communities, and to

and confidence in our organization as
we continue to be a good corporate
citizen to the communities we serve.

Cardio a Key to a Successful Exercise Regimen


When it comes time to lose weight, many people look to the
nearby fitness center to help them shed those extra pounds.
When entering a gym for the first time, newcomers are often
overwhelmed by the buzz of activity and the clanking of
weights coupled with the host of machines they seem to know
nothing about.
While an initial foray into the gym can be intimidating, it's
important to keep in mind that one of the best ways to lose
weight is something you've been doing almost since the day
you were born. Since the moment you took your first step,
you've been doing cardio, or cardiovascular exercise. More
widely referred to as aerobic exercise, cardio has a number of.
benefits, not the least of which is losing weight.
Cardio strengthens bones. Osteoporosis is a bone disease
in which the bones become brittle and fragile due to tissue loss.
This tissue loss can be the result of age or deficiencies in
calcium or vitamin D. A workout that includes jogging or even
fast'walking can reduce the risk of osteoporosis because, as the
National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) points out, these
weight-bearing activities strengthen the skeletal system. NOF
also notes that any exercise in which feet or legs are bearing
the weight, including dancing and climbing, are effective
cardio exercises.
Cardio reduces body fat. Including cardio in your regular
exercise routine helps to increase lean body tissue while
reducing fat. If the goal of your weight loss is to look better,
then including cardio in your regular routine is a great way to
achieve this. While this might sound simple, the more calories
you bur, the more pounds you'll lose, and cardio has proven
to be a great way to bum calories.
Cardio can reduce blood pressure. Many people choose to
lose weight not because of a New Year's resolution, but
because their doctor (or their body) has told them they need to
shed weight to survive. For those with high blood pressure,


cardio has proven an effective way to lower blood pressure. A
2002 study at Tulane University found that aerobic, or
cardiovascular, exercise lowered blood pressure in all groups of
people, whether they had pre-existing conditions or had normal
blood pressure.
SCardio can help relieve the pain of arthritis. A
cardiovascular program that includes water exercise can be
especially valuable to arthritis sufferers: Such exercise can help
keep the joints moving while strengthening the muscles around
the joints. In addition, cardiovascular exercise increases energy
levels, which helps arthritis sufferers better handle some the daily
tasks that have become difficult as a result of the arthritis.

ATTENTION

You should be cautious of calls
from interested buyers of your
advertised merchandise. If the
caller is offering you MORE money
than what you are asking or
suggest sending you a check for
more than the amount and
requesting you to cash it and just
send them back the remaining
amount DON'T! THIS IS A SCAM!
BE CAUTIOUS, IF IT SOUNDS
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT
USUALLY IS.
