In I Chronicles 12:33,
speaking of the tribe of
Zebulun, it is said they
"...could keep rank:
they were not of dou-
ble heart." They had
made up their minds
and were not going
back. These men were
committed to the cause!
Being able to "keep
rank" means being de-
pendable; a person that
the Lord can count on.
There are too many on-
again-off-again Chris-
tians! They are not
there when you need
them because they
can't "keep rank." One
day they sing, "I am in
the Lord's army," and
the next they can't be
found. They sing, "I
am going to die on the
battlefield for my
Lord," and they are not
even making an honest
attempt to live for'Him.
Consider what a
church full of men and
women who "keep
rank" could do. Souls
would be won! Mis- ,
sionaries would be sent
forth. Families. would
be strengthened.
Church members unit-
ed! The hungry would
be fed; both physically


and spiritually. Ruined
lives would be re-
claimed! The congre-
gation would have a
witness that would
make a difference in
the community.
Churches will, most
likely, always be ac-
cused of being havens
for hypocrites but at
least' there would be no
foundation for the ac-
cusation!
Be dependable in
your Christian life.
"Keep rank!"

Football season is in
full swing at the Land
house, thanks to all the
sports channels avail-,
able these days, Monday
night football has turned
into Tuesday, Wednes-
day, Thursday, you get
the idea. While I'm not
a die-hard fan, I do join
my husband to watch a
game from time to time,
and recently I became
interested in a particular
piece of equipment that
is mandatory for every
player on the field:
mouth guards.
Mouth guards are the
coverings used to pro-
tect teeth from injury
during sports. (For
those player's parents
who spent a fortune on
braces, you may want to
keep an extra on hand!)
Anyway, these mouth
guards got me thinking,
that we could sure use a
piece of equipment like
. this that would protect
our mouths from injury
in our relationships.,
What kind of restric-
tions have you chosen to
set on your speech?
Cursing and swearing
maybe the first things
that come to mind, but
what about those slang
"substitute" words that
everyone knows what
word they are standing,
in for? What about gos-
siping and' criticizing
people behind their
back? In Ephesians 4:29,
the Bible has a one-size
fits all mouth guard:
"Do not let unwhole-
some talk come out of
your mouths, but only
what is helpful for
building others up ac-
cording to their needs,
that it may benefit those
Who listen."

lyLife Ministry

You say you will nev-
er forget where you
were when you heard
the news on September
11, 2001. Neither will I.
I was on the 110th
floor in a smoke filled
room with a man who
called his wife to say
'Good-Bye.' I held his
fingers steady as he di-
aled. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I
am not going to make
it, but it is OK..I am
r ready to go.'
I was with his wife
when he called as she
fed breakfast to their
children. I held her up
ge as she tried to under-
stand his words and as
.ke she realized he wasn't
coming home that night.
I was in thq stairwell
of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to me
for help. 'I have been
knocking on the door of
your heart for 50 years!'
I said. 'Of course I will
show you the way home
x- only believe in Me
y. now.'
I was at the base of
om the building with the
priest ministering to the
nic injured and devastated
souls.
I took him home to
a- tend to his flock in '
d Heaven. He heard my
voice and answered.
ve I was on all four of
those planes, in every
)0 seat, with every prayer..
1 I was with the crew as
they were overtaken. I
o- was in the very hearts of
is the believers there, com-
- forting and assuring
them thai'their faith has


saved them.
I was in Texas, Vir-
ginia, California,
Michigan, Afghanistan.
I was standing next to
you when you heard the
terrible neivs. Did you
sense Me?
I want you to know
that I saw every face. I
knew every name -
though not all know Me.
Some met Me for the
first time on the 86th
floor.
Some sought Me with
their last breath. Some
couldn't hear Me calling'
to them through the
smoke and flames;
'Come to Me... this
way... take My hand.'
Some chose, for the fi-
nal time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.
Sept. 11, 2001, was
not the end of the jour-
ney for you. But some-
day your journey will
end. And I will be there
for you as.well.
I will be in the stair-
well of your final mo-
ments.
......God
Stop and think and
appreciate God's power
in your life, fordoing
what you know is pleas-


ing to Him. If you are
not ashamed to do this,
follow the Instructions.
Jesus said, 'If you are
ashamed of Me, I will be
ashamed of you before
My Father'
If you believe, say,
Yes, I love my God. He
is my Fountain of Life
and My Savior. He
keeps me going day and
night. Without Him, I
am no one. But with
Him, I can do every-
thing. Christ is my
strength.'

the pranksters put that buggy on
top of that little store and Babe and
Louise had to call in some help to
bring it down. Babe's brother in
law, Harvey, Jr., Baker and some
other were able to retrieve it and
get it back down where it
continued to waste away. Harvey
later told me something of an
interesting and humorous nature
about-that Halloween night. He
and Babe were not always on good
terms it seems and maybe he let his
anguish surface a bit on that night.
Anyway, he had managed to make
captive a small skunk somewhere
out there in the edge of Mayo near
his home and a mischievous use of
that animal came to mind. So, on
Halloween night he brought that
animal to town and suspended it
from the sign that hung in front of
the Green's store by placing it in a
pair of old overalls with a knot
tying the legs together.
The next morning Babe saw that
pair of overalls hanging there but
had no due as to what was to
follow. After unlocking the store
and so on he returned to the front
and proceeded to remove that old
pair of overalls. Harvey told ine
that he had intended to be on hand
to observe that event but overslept
and missed it. His only
recompense came from the
comments he heard his sister
Louise make. It wasn't funny to
either her or Babe he said and
though he was a suspect, he
remained in the clear. I never heard
any report about that either so
Babe apparently chose not to make
it a matter for the public. I did
however notice that pair of overalls
hanging there on my way to
school.

Schools receive supplies

for homeless program


Several area schools, including
Suwannee County schools, Lafayette
County Schools and Hamilton County
Schools recently received backpacks
and school supplies for the schools'
homeless program, which serves
students who are considered homeless
under various criteria.
Feed The Children, an international
relief organization delivered 1,600
backpacks, which were filled with
school supplies, non-perishable food
and personal care items and books. The
organization distributed the supplies at
Suwannee County Schools Materials
Center.
H.E.L.P., Homeless Education and
Literacy Program, an outreach program
of Feed The Children, has partnered
with the National Association for the
Education of Homeless Children and
Youth (NAEHCY) to distribute
backpacks to children in need. Feed The
Children distributed 80,000 backpacks
across the nation during the 2007-2008
school year and plans to distribute
100,000 in 2008-2009 school year.
"We believe in the power of
education to reduce and reverse the
cycle of poverty," says Larry Jones,
president and co-founder of Feed The
Children. "Providing homeless school
children with 'survival items' such as
school supplies, hygiene items and food
help meet immediate physical needs. It
also helps secure our long-term hope for
these children: that they will excel at
school and eventually break free from a
life of poverty."
Lisa McKinley, Suwannee County
School's Homeless Liaison, would like
to thank the following for their efforts


during the delivery: Suwannee County
School employees who worked above
and beyond their regular duties: Mark
Carver, Bill Yanossy, Mike Johnson,
George Langford and Matt Hingson.
Volunteers from surrounding counties:
Bob Sansouci from Live Oak, Reese
Thomas from Lee, Sarah Koon and
MaryAnne McCray's family from
Lafayette.

About the homeless program
Every Child has a right to an
education. If, due to a loss of housing, a
child must live in a shelter, motel,
vehicle, or campground, on the street, in
abandoned buildings, or doubled-up
with relatives or friends, then he/ she is
eligible to receive services provided
under the McKinriey-Vento Act.
The McKinney-Vento Education for
Homeless Children and Youth Program
is designed to address the problems that
homeless children and youth have faced
in enrolling, attending, and succeeding
in school. Under this program,
Suwannee County Schools must ensure
that each homeless child and youth has
equal access to the same free,
appropriate public education, including
a public preschool education, as other
children and youth.
Homeless children and youth must
have access to the educational and other
services that they need to enable them
to meet the same challenging State
student academic achievement
standards to which all students are held.
In addition, homeless students may not
be separated from the mainstream

"It's Never too Late to Get Healthy"


WEEK 6
Reducing Stress
Developing healthy
habits includes learning
how to relieve or reduce
stress from your life.
Everyone experiences
stress in some fashion, it
is the body's natural
reaction to tension,
pressure and change.
Most of us are creatures
of habit and we do not
like change in big doses,
but a certain amount of
challenge makes our
lives interesting. To
much stress however
can be bad for you both
physically and mentally.
Prolonged stress can
lead to serious health
problems.
Listed are a few
common signs of stress:
headaches, upset
stomach, feeling uptight,
anxiety, irritability, lack
of energy, poor
concentration,
overeating or skipping
meals, frequent colds
and forgetfulness to
name a few. If you are
constantly feeling one or
more of these symptoms
you are experiencing
stress.'
Tips to manage Stress
Think positively and
surround yourself by
others who think the
same.
Avoid the trap of


demanding too much of
yourself. Delegate tasks,
chores etc. to household
members. Wonder
Woman and Superman
are comic strip
characters not real life
people. You do not have
super powers learn to
delegate.
Accept that you
cannot control every
situation, take a deep
breathe and be flexible.
Make a list of things to
help you remember
what you need to
accomplish in a day.
Eat plenty of fruits
and vegetables
including whole grains
and get off the caffeine.
Get plenty of rest.
Exercise each day if
possible, especially try
walking, it is a great
stress reliever.
Take some deep
breaths. Stretch your
arms up to the sky, and
then touch your toes.
Avoid tobacco, alcohol
and drugs, they only
make matters worse.
Learn from your
mistakes or setbacks and
let them go you can not
change what has already
been done.
Contact your doctor
if you are feeling
stressed out. Get some
professional help.
Anxiety associated with


Karen Woulf


stress can sometimes be
a scary ordeal. Talk to
your doctor about how
you are feeling and be
honest. Good nutrition
and exercise can help
your body's defenses to
reduce stress.
Doing some stretch
exercises can help
relieve tension so stop
what you are doing once
or twice a day and just
stretch. Your body will.
thank you.
This concludes our six
week series of "It's
never too late to get
healthy" and I hope you
have received some
good tips you can use in
your everyday life to
make some simple
changes to a healthier
you.

Time running out for Florida seniors to claim

Share of $121.8 million in IRS Stimulus Checks


More than 400,000 Florida seniors
and other low-income residents have
just four weeks left to claim their share
of almost $121.8 million in this year's
federal stimulus rebate checks, a
relatively simple process that could
bring each recipient at least $300. The
state's toll-free Elder Helpline can help
direct seniors to local offices that can
provide assistance.
Florida Department of Elder Affairs
Secretary E. Douglas Beach urged the
state's older residents who have not
yet filed for the rebate to do so
immediately. Seniors need to file a
federal tax return'by October 15 in
order to receive a stimulus payment
before the end of the year. The Internal
Revenue Service says those most likely
to have still not applied are low-
income seniors, disabled veterans and
others with disabilities who are not
required to file a federal tax return.
"Older Floridians have been hit
particularly hard by the economy, and
every little bit helps. These residents
are entitled to a rebate check, and we
encourage them to take the easy steps
to qualify for a payment," said Beach.
In June, the IRS reported that almost
406,000 eligible Floridians had not yet
received stimulus rebate checks
because they had not filed tax returns.
Those Floridians are entitled to a
combined $121,790,400. Both figures
are the fourth largest in the nation.
Seniors and other eligible Floridians
can qualify for the rebate by filing an


Girls in my circle


When I was little, I used
to believe in the concept of
one best friend, and then I
started to become a
woman.
And then I found out
that if you allow your
heart to open up, God
would show you the best
in many friends.
One friend is needed
when you're going
through things with your
man. ,
Another friend is
needed when you're going


through things with your
mom.
Another will sit beside
you in the bleachers as
you delight in your
children and their
activities.
Another when 'you want
to shop, share, heal, hurt,
joke, or just be. One friend
will say, 'Let's cry
together,' Another, 'Let's
fight together,' Another,
'Let's walk away together.'
One friend will meet
your spiritual need,


another your shoe fetish,
another your love for
movies, another will be
with you in your season of
confusion, another will be
your clarifier, another the
wind beneath your wings.
But whatever their
assignment in your life, on
whatever the occasion, on
whatever the day, or
wherever you need them
to meet you with their
gym shoes on and hair
pulled back, or to hold
you back from making a


complete fool of yourself..
those are your best
friends.
It may all be wrapped
up in one woman, but for
many, it's wrapped up in
several.
One from 7th grade,
one from high school,
several from the college
years, a couple from old
jobs, on some days your ,
mother, on some days
your neighbor, on others,
your sisters, and on some
days, your daughters.


IRS form 1040A tax return, filling in
just a few lines and writing "Stimulus
Payment" across the top of the form.
Local IRS offices can help complete the
form, and the Department of Elder
Affairs' Elder Helpline 1-800-96-
ELDER (1-800-963-5337) can provide
telephone numbers for local IRS offices
throughout the state. Additional free
assistance is available for seniors in
some Florida communities, and the
Elder Helpline will be able to provide
information for residents in those
communities.
Many seniors do not file tax returns
because Social Security payments are
not subject to income tax and they do
not otherwise have the $3,000 in
income that makes a tax return
necessary. However, the economic
stimulus law passed in February
contains a special provision allowing
Social Security recipients to count
those benefits in order to qualify for
the rebate.
"Some seniors may not have realized
that they are eligible for a stimulus
check, and all they have to do is file a
basic tax return," Beach said. "This
money is there for them they simply
have to ask."
To qualify for a stimulus check,
individuals must have at least $3,000 in
qualifying income, including any
combination of earned income,
nontaxable combat pay, and certain
benefit payments from Social Security,
VA, and Railroad Retirement.

Plaque honoring Dr. Maliszewski


Local physician

honored for efforts

in healthcare


Boyd: House B

of dome
Comprehensive er
area in the C
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) voted for a com-
prehensive and responsible ener-
gy bill that includes the largest ex-
pansion of domestic drilling in
U.S. history. The Comprehensive
Energy Security and Consumer
Protection Act (HR 6899) also pro-
tects the critical military training
and testing area in the Gulf of
Mexico and invests in renewable
sources of energy.
HR 6899 would permit oil and
gas leasing between 50 and 100
miles along the entire Outer Con-
tinental Shelf (OCS), except for the
Eastern Gulf of Mexico, if a state
chooses to "opt-in" to allow leas-
ing and enacts a state law. The re-
maining OCS beyond 100 miles
would be open to oil and gas leas-
i ing. The legislation also adheres
to the bipartisan 2006 agreement
which protects the military train-
ing area in the Gulf, encompassing
most of the Eastern Gulf, until
2022.
"I worked hard to make sure
that the House Leadership draft-
ing this bill understood the impor-
tance of the military training
range in the Gulf and the impact
that drilling in this area could
have on our communities, our lo-
cal and state economies, and our
national defense efforts," said
Congressman Boyd. "The House
energy- bill recognizes the impor-
tant role of our military testing
range and also includes the largest


ill includes the largest expansion
stic drilling in U.S. history
iergy bill protects the military training
rulf, invests in renewable energy


expansion of domestic drilling in
our country's history."
"At the same time, we are pro-
hibiting drilling from at least 50
miles off Florida's coastline, keep-
ing our tourism and fishing indus-
tries strong and protecting our
beautiful beaches," Boyd contin-
ued. "This bill really is a 'best case
scenario' for Florida, and those
who say it does not go far enough
are looking at the political polls
and not at the pump."
The offshore drilling provisions
in the bill would open up 63 to 80
percent, or 319 to' 404 million
acres, of the OCS currently closed
to drilling, depending on what
states decide. These newly-
opened areas would increase the
.oil available by at least 2 billion
barrels.
The comprehensive energy bill
also would:
Extend and expand tax incen-
tives for renewable energy.
Temporarily release nearly 10
percent of oil from the govern-.
ment's stockpile, known as the
Strategic Petroleum Reserve
(SPR), and replaces it later with
heavier, cheaper crude oil. Past
releases have brought down gas
prices by up to 33 percent.
Increase domestic oil produc-!
tion in the National Petroleum Re-
serve in Alaska.
Require oil companies to drill
on the 68 million acres of federal
lands they already control.


Advance the development
and deployment of carbon capture
and storage technologies to' come
up with a cleaner way to use coal.
Strengthen energy efficiency
in buildings to bring down costs
and provide incentives for energy
efficient homes.
"No bill is perfect, and there diare
things in this bill that I would like
to remedy in the future, such as
the renewable electricity standard
and the exclusion of incentives for
more nuclear power," Boyd said.
"But this legislation represents'a
responsible and serious,.compro-
mise to help bring down' gas
prices now and invest'in a renew-
able energy future. I hope more of
my friends on the other side of the
aisle will stop the political gaming
and get behind the bill's concrete
proposals to address high gas
prices, provide more domestic'oil,
and encourage, alternative ener-
gy.",

as a dedicated profes-
sional who cares about
his patients.
Dr. "M" is much ap-
preciated by the staff of
Mayo Health Services
and North Florida
Medical Centers, said
Deidra Newman, pub-
lic relations director for
North Florida Medical
Centers.
During the health
fair, 35 senior citizens
received free blood
pressure readings,
blood sugar and choles-
terol screenings as well
as education from the
Sickle Cell Foundation
and Free Glucose Me-
ters from North Florida
Pharmacy.

Massey is the daugh-


ter of the late Dunk and

to the late William,
Massey Jr., for 43 years,
with whom she had five
children. They were
blessed with six grand-

dren, 50 grandchildren -
and 28 great-grandchil-
dren.
Massey and Jones will

His blood donation is a celebration


Gainesville Blood
donation is a good
and easy way to save
a life, but for Ensign
Kamalan Selvarajah
donating blood
recently was a
reason to c61ebrate.
Selvarajah is a
long-time donor, but
for the past year he's
been unable to give

blood, because on
Sept. 15, 2007 he was the one
needing a transfusion.
"I never expected to be on the
receiving end," Selvarajah said.
He was riding his motorcycle
.home following the University of
Florida and Tennessee football game
when a drunk driver turned into his
path. He crashed to avoid the .
collision and fractured his skull in
nine places. Surgery, two units of
blood and 2 1/2 weeks in the
hospital helped save his life.
Selvarajah had spent the first 12
years of his Navy career as an
enlisted man. He was a First Class
Petty Officer Hospital Corpsman
who spent many years working in
blood bank laboratories and
recruiting blood donors. He
understood that those who received
blood are excluded from giving for

an entire year.
So, two days
after he passed
that one-year
mark, he was
ready to give
again and felt at
home climbing
into the donor
chair.
"It felt good,"
he said of the


experience.
kfter receiving blood, it
courage me even more to give."
"It's a very easy thing to do, and
s quick. It took me almost as long
fill out the paperwork as it did to
mate,",he said.
From signing in to finish, the
ocedure took Selvarajah about 45
minutes, and that included doing an
terview with a local radio station
he donated.
The accident occurred just a few
weeks after Selvarajah had received
s commission as an officer after
aduation from ROTC at the
university of Florida. He was
waiting to depart for Flight Officers
hool in Pensacola to become a
vigator.
He has spent the past year
covering in Gainesville, assigned
the ROTC unit on campus. The
crash did leave him with
double vision, however,
* so his hopes of flying are
,. gone. Instead he is now
preparing for a new
career with the Medical
Service Corpsas as health
care administrator.
"I'm very lucky to be
alive, I'm lucky to have
lots of options," he said.
Selvarajah brought
fellow officer, L. Eric
Hulbert, along and both
donated. And the timing,
on the eve of the
University of Florida and
Tennessee football game,
scored two more points
in the annual "What
Colors Do You Bleed"
competition between
donors in Gainesville and
Knoxville.
"I bleed orange and
blue," Selvarajah said,
holding up his '
appropriately colored
souvenir T-shirt.
Donors must be at least
17 years old, or 16 with
signed parental consent,
weigh a minimum of 110
pounds and be in good
health. A photo ID is also
required. For any
