Mayo's Lewis Sessions

recalls his days as a soldier

A ship carrying replacement sol-
diers, including Lewis Sessions,
crossed the Atlantic and landed on
the shores of France during World
War II. Unlike most of his fellow


passengers, Sessions had been wait-
ing nearly four years to finally s, ,
combat. His heart raced as t :,
shipped docked. And then someone,
cheered, "The German war has end -
ed. Hitler is dead!"

Hallelujah festival


IOITUAIES


The 9th annual Hallelujah Festival
was held at Airline Baptist Church on
Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009. Nearly 2800
people attended the festival and en-
joyed the festivities. After signing in at
the welcome tables, people proceeded
down the row of 33 trunk-r-treats
where children received a wide assort-
ment of candy, snow cones, cotton can-
dy, and a gospel tract. Six blow-up
games were enjoyed by all ages and
there was a variety of skill games in-
cluded for children.
Some of these included apple-bob-
bing, go fish, throw the football, and
ring the stake. Children enjoyed sand
art and face painting. Adults were able
to participate in the cake walk and pine
straw maze. One of the most popular
events for everyone is the hayride
which meanders through the woods be-
hind the church. Live gospel music was
provided by the Alton Church of God
and Tracy Perry's Blue Grass Band.
Everyone enjoyed a hotdog dinner
complete with chips and a snack cake.
The crowd ate about 1,700 hot dogs

Michael Guido
A little girl said,
"Mom, I'm not going to
pray anymore."
"Why not?" she asked.
"Because," said the
girl, "I didn't say my
prayers for three nights
and nothing bad hap-
pened."
Is prayer a farce or a
force?
It's a force. Moses
prayed, and the Red
Sea's waters parted to
make a dry highway for
the children of God.
Joshua prayed, and the
walls of Jericho fell
down flat. Elijah prayed,
and he locked and un-
locked the rain doors of
heaven. Hezekiah
prayed, and the Lord
lengthened his life by fif-
teen years. Paul and
Silas prayed, and the
prison doors opened.
The Bible says, "The
effectual fervent prayer
of a righteous man
availeth much."

Heart Matters


HOW LATE?


In the opening scene
of the movie "Hope
Floats," Sandra Bullock's
character finds out that
her husband is having an
affair and wants a di-
vorce, on national televi-
sion! Even in a movie,
that level of humiliation
is hard to witness, and
even harder to endure.
Humiliation occurs
when someone's self-re-
spect or dignity is dam-
aged, and nothing does a
better job than rejection.
The hard truth remains
that rejection is a fact of
life and even when we
don't understand it, re-
jection has the potential
to free us up for better
things. New opportuni-
ties and healthier rela-
tionships are just a few
examples of how rejec-
tion is not the worst
thing that can happen to
us.
Flip that over to the
other side. Who have
you rejected? An even
better question might be
how did you reject them?
I was talking with a
group of teenage girls re-
cently, and one of the
girls had nothing but
complaints about her
current boyfriend. Curi-
ous, I asked the obvious
question, "If you feel that
way, why don't you
break up with him?"
Her reply was one I have
heard often: "Oh no, I
can't break up with him
it would hurt his feel-
ings." Clearly, she was
rejecting him, he was just
the only one who didn't
know it! We definitely
need a new perspective.
Dating is the bridge
between being single and
the covenant of being
married. It is the place to
work through issues and
gives the opportunity to
build relationship skills.
Unless you are planning
to marry the first person
you date, you will at
some point either be re-
jected or be the rejecter.
While no one enjoys be-
ing rejected, often being
the rejecter can prove to
be the most difficult. In
their book, "The Art of
Rejection," authors
Michael and Hayley Di-
Marco explain, "People
tell us one of the major
reasons they're spending
a lot of time thinking
about a breakup before
the actual breakup is that
they are trying to figure
out how to defend their
reasons, if you have a
sense that you want out
of the relationship, go
with that. Don't be
afraid of hurting the oth-
er person's feelings, be-

cause you are not in con-
trol of how they will re-
act. You are only in con-
trol of your own life. In
the end, breaking it off at
the first sign of serious
trouble will be much bet-
ter than letting it linger
until it becomes more
and more painful to
break up.
In Proverbs 4:23, the
Bible instructs us to
"Guard your heart with
all diligence, for out of it
is the wellspring of life.
Guarding your heart
doesn't mean that you
break up over a simple
difference of opinion,
but rather that you in-
vestigate your feelings.
If you realize that your
feelings have changed,
you begin to feel trapped
in the relationship or
start to dread spending
time together, its time to
break it off, before you
head towards marriage!
There are also a few red
flags that you need to
pay attention to even if
your feelings aren't the
problem: abuse, lies,
and cheating. These are
not relationship prob-
lems, they are character
problems that will con-
tinue to worsen in a rela-
tionship where they are
tolerated. Get out now,
there is much more at
stake than hurt feelings.
Healthy relationships
make you both better, so
keep searching and
don't settle for less, be-
cause your heart mat-
ters.

"Hath a nation
changed their gods
which are yet no gods?
But my people have
changed their glory for
that which doth not prof-
it. Be astonished, O ye
heavens, at this, and be
horribly afraid, be ye
very desolate, saith the
Lord. For my people have
committed two evils;
they have forsaken me
the fountain of living wa-
ters, and hewed them out
cisterns, broken cisterns,
that can hold no water."
(Jeremiah 2:11-13). What
kind of trade has been
made? The early settlers,
such as those who came
on the Mayflower, came
searching for a place
where they could wor-
ship the Lord God with-
out being persecuted by
some state church. They
were people who put
God first in their lives -
the Bible was the primary
book in their schools. The
early settlers didn't want
to be told by a particular
church what doctrine
they must believe but
wanted the freedom to
read and interpret the
Bible for themselves.
They were men and
women of high moral
and ethical character; liv-

ing holy and sanctified
lives. Their churches
were a central part of
their lives. The commu-
nities were built around
the church (this is still ev-
ident in the small villages
in New England where
the old churches still
stand in the center of the
quaint towns). All of the
great universities were
established by Bible be-
lieving men only to be
taken over by those who
would rather have noth-
ing to do with the Bible in
our day!
What kind of trade has
been made by the United
States? Has America
traded that which made
her special and unique
for that which is unprof-
itable? Many Americans
have turned their backs
on God and have tried to
find answers elsewhere:
in education, employ-
ment, money (I Timothy
6:10), the cults (Human-
ism declared a religion
in 1963, Spiritualism,
Modernism, to just
scratch the surface) and
everything but the truths
of God's Word "For the
time will come when
they will not endure
sound doctrine; but after
their own lusts shall they
heap to themselves
teachers, having itching
ears;" (II Timothy 4:3).
This is the time! A large
portion of the people that
attend church regularly
are more interested in
getting out to go to the
local buffet than they are
about what the preacher


is saying! What's in the
message from God today
needs to be the mindset
of God's people Ameri-
ca needs to hear from
God! America needs re-
vival!
What's being seen in
America and all around
the world is a confirma-
tion of the Word of God.
It declares the nearness
of His coming. Things
that the prophets could
have never imagined but
told us about are begin-
ning to happen. A world
wide identification mark
(666) may have been im-
possible to imagine at
one time but it's not to-
day! A cashless society is
practically here already.
All of the horrible things
you witness in the news
and see on the streets all
around you, though up-
setting, should be en-
couraging because they
should tell you that the
coming of Jesus is getting
closer. It's sort of like the
little girl who was laying
in her bed listening every
hour to her family's
grandfather clock be-
cause she couldn't sleep.
When it got to 11 P.M. it

years (over 50), and
while I do not believe it is
possible to set dates for
the Lord's return, I do
sense in the world today
an unprecedented time
of world crises that can
be interpreted as being
preparatory for the com-
ing of the Lord. If there
ever was a time when
Christians should live
every day as though
Christ could come at any
time, it is today."
Jesus said, "But of that
day and hour knoweth
no man, no, not the an-
gels of heaven, but my
Father only, But as the
days of Noah were, so
shall also the coming of
the Son of man be"
(Matthew 24:36, 37)

than it has ever been be-
fore!

was one of 49 that com-
peted, and although she
expressed her disap-
pointment in not doing
as well as she had
hoped, she still re-
mained positive about
the experience as a
whole, and said she felt
she had gained a lot
from the competition.
She expressed her ap-
preciation to her spon-
sor, Leenette McMillan
and shared how much
support McMillan had
been to her, especially at
the Convention. She
stated that the Interact
Club was very fortunate
to have McMillan as
their sponsor. She con-
cluded by thanking the
Rotary Club for all they
do for the Interact Club.
Next on the program
was Lindsey Hamlin
and Mary-Thomas Hart
both members of the In-
teract Club. Each girl in
turn shared some of
their recent experiences
of the Interact Club and


L-R Lindsey Hamlin and Mary-Thomas Hart


ways they have been
able to help others. One
of the recent trips made
by the Club was to the
Ronald McDonald
House in Gainesville,
where they provided
dinners for the house
guests and planned a
Halloween party for the
children.
Hamlin shared some
of the emotional experi-
ences relating to one of
the young children, and
how much it had


changed her perspective
about a lot of things. Ac-
cording to the girls, the
Interact Club gives you
hands on experiences,
not just classroom learn-
ing, but life changing ex-
periences, such as the
one mentioned above.
They concluded that
the "life lessons" outside
the classroom and even
outside the community
are lessons well learned
by doing, not hearing
only.

Mayo's Lewis Sessions recalls his days as a soldier


Continued From Page 1A

Due to a mix up, Ses-
sions was never as-
signed to a permanent
unit after enlisting in the
US Army in 1942 when
he was 20. He bounced
from base to base, al-
ways narrowly missing
the chance to be de-
ployed to fight the ongo-
ing war across Europe.
"I felt that was where I
needed to be. It was my
duty," said Sessions.
"And hell, they
would've drafted me
anyway."
When his opportunity
finally came, Sessions
found himself in Europe,
not fighting Nazis, but


rather scouring Ger-
many and other sur-
rounding countries, in-
cluding Yugoslavia, for
displaced persons and
helping them find their
way home. Sessions can
still recall what he felt
the first time he entered
a concentration camp.
"It was heartbreaking,"
he paused. "It was just a
bad thing. I saw where
they used to burn them."
"Hitler had scattered
the people everywhere,
what he hadn't killed,"
Sessions said.
After three months of
helping hoards of
Hitler's victims, includ-
ing emancipated Jews
and parentless children,


find their way home, he
received new orders to
return to the US immedi-
ately. Sessions was being
sent to fight in mainland
Japan. Finally, he would
see combat. Only by this
point, his fervor was
spent.
After returning to the
U.S., Sessions was put on
a 30-day leave, after
which he would be
shipped, along with
thousands of other sol-
diers to invade Japan.
Just before being de-
ployed, the news ar-
rived. On August 6, 1945
Truman dropped the
atomic bomb on Hiroshi-
ma, Japan. The war end-
ed days later.
"We didn't have to go
anywhere. Japan surren-
dered and they broke
our division up," said
Sessions. The soldiers
with the most combat ex-
perience where allowed
to leave the army. "Of
course, I didn't get dis-
charge," he chuckled. "I
didn't have all that com-
bat experience."
Sessions was called to
battle once again during
the Korean War. He was
sent to California, ex-
pecting to be immediate-
ly deployed to Korea. At
the last minute, the or-


ders were changed and
he was sent to the last
place he expected, Alas-
ka. "That was the last
place in the world I want
to go, but we loved it,"
said Sessions. Sessions
had married his wife
Catherine before enlist-
ing in '42. "It was hard to
find a place to live in
Alaska at that time. But I
found a place before I
brought her up there. A
little ol' shack," he said.
Sessions became the first
instructor of the Nation-
al Guard in Alaska. Ses-
sions said he just hap-
pened to be the only per-
son who had extensive
knowledge of the Na-
tional Guard and ROTC
in Alaska.
"I just happened to be
in the right place at the
right time," Sessions
said. A statement that
characterizes his story.
Sessions went on to
complete a stint in Korea
after the war and also re-
turned to Germany,
Catherine by his side.
After twenty years in the
Army, Sessions retired
as a Captain. Originally
from Mayo, he and
Catherine returned
home. "Everybody
wants to get back home,
I think," he smiled.

Florida's Public Ser-
vice Commission (PSC)
approved a refund of
more than $364 million
for Florida Power &
Light Company (FPL)
customers due to over
recovery for fuel costs.
Customers will see the
refund reflected as a
one-time credit on their
January bill.
Fuel adjustment rates
and cost recovery clause
charges for Progress En-
ergy Florida (PEF) and
Tampa Electric Compa-
ny were also deter-
mined after an eviden-
tiary hearing, where the
Commission considered
each utility's 2010 pro-
jected costs for fuel and
purchased power as
well as actual costs for
2008 and 2009.
Utilities are allowed
to recover the prudently
incurred fuel and pur-
chased power costs nec-
essary to meet customer
demand but may not
earn a profit on fuel pur-
chases. The fuel charge
appears as a separate
line item on customer
bills. Capacity, conser-
vation, and environ-
mental recovery costs
are included in the ener-
gy charge and not listed
separately on customer
bills. FPL and PEF cus-
tomers will also have
nuclear cost recovery
amounts, approved in
October, included in the
energy charge.

Final costs for residen-
tial customers starting
in January 2010 are:
Florida Power &
Light Company: Based
on the new charges, the
total monthly electric
bill for residential cus-
tomers using 1,000 kwh
will decrease from the
current charge of
$110.72 to $95.43. The
fuel portion of the bill
will decrease by $13.66.
The bill also contains
decreases in the follow-
ing cost recovery claus-
es: $1.95 in Capacity and
$0.15 in Energy Conser-
vation. Environmental
cost recovery will in-
crease by $0.85, and the
gross receipts tax will
decrease by $0.38.
The bill is subject to
change pending the out-
come of FPL's current
rate case. A final deci-


sion is expected on Jan-
uary 29.
For January bills
only, FPL residential
customers using 1,000
kwh will receive a
$44.46 credit. The cred-
it amount will increase
or decrease according to
energy usage.
Progress Energy
Florida: Based on the
new charges, the total
monthly electric bill for
residential customers
using 1,000 kwh will de-
crease from the current
charge of $127.31 to
$127.26. The fuel por-
tion of the bill will de-
crease by $9.89. The bill
also contains increases
in the following cost re-
covery clauses: $2.25 in
Environmental; $6.55 in
Capacity; and $0.47 in
Energy Conservation.
The gross receipts tax


will not change.
The bill is subject to
change pending the out-
come of PEF's current
rate case. A final deci-
sion is expected on Jan-
uary 28.
Tampa Electric Com-
pany: Based on the new
charges, the total
monthly electric bill for
residential customers
using 1,000 kwh will de-
crease from the current
charge of $114.67 to
$113.21. The fuel por-
tion of the bill will de-
crease by $6.32. The bill
also contains these cost
recovery clause
changes: a $2.63 in-
crease in Environmen-
tal; a $0.02 reduction in
Capacity; and a $0.33 in-
crease in Energy Con-
servation. The gross re-
ceipts tax will decrease
by $0.04.


Charges
Gulf Power Company
and Florida Public Utili-
ties Company: Fuel and
cost recovery charges
for both utility compa-
nies will be decided at
the December 1 Agenda
Conference.
The PSC is committed
to making sure that
Florida's consumers re-
ceive their electric, nat-
ural gas, telephone, wa-
ter, and wastewater ser-
vices in a safe, afford-
able, and reliable man-
ner. The PSC exercises
regulatory authority
over utilities in the ar-
eas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; com-
petitive market over-
sight; and monitoring of
safety, reliability, and
service.

Lights On After School


The Lafayette County
After-School Program
hosted the annual
"Lights on After School"
on Thursday, October
22, 2009 in the town
park. Over three hun-
dred parents and chil-
dren came out to play
games, have their face
painted, and "walk" for
brownies, rice krispy
treats, and cookies. The
program ended with
hotdogs, chips, and a
drink
Teachers, site coordi-
nators, and administra-
tors from each school
helped make this after-
noon a huge success...
The Lafayette County
After-School Program is
held from 3:15-6:15
Monday Thursday of
each week to help stu-
dents in grades K-12
with skills to succeed in
school. Teachers are
housed at each school to
work with students. We
have around 175
students enrolled
at the elementary
and 75 at the high

huge success due
to the dedication
of the students,

Hornets handle St. Johns J


Country
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
The Hornets went into battle with
the Spartans Friday night and came
out with a big win, defeating St.
Johns Country Day School 49-9.
Antwan Brown began the night with
an 80-yard punt return for a touch-
down. Quarterback Nick Bracewell
went 10-12 for 218 yards, throwing
for two touchdowns. Treston Whid-
den stepped up for a 55-yard touch-
down and an additional score.
"We played well on Friday," said
Coach Pearson. "A lot of guys
touched the ball and I was happy
with our execution."


Day 49-9
For the offense, Arthur Sellers
dominated, with 90 yards rushing
and a 30-yard passing touchdown
from Bracewell. Negrete contributed
with six successful extra point at-
tempts.
"We are glad to be in the playoffs
again. We are now preparing for a
tough 8-1 Branford team," said Pear-
son. "They have had a great year and
are always ready for us. Our guys
are going to be excited and ready to
play it should be a great game."
The Hornets are now 7-2. After
Branford this Friday, they will play
at Jefferson County for the first
round of playoffs in their fifth con-
secutive postseason appearance.

an industry not often understood by
Florida's growing urban population.
Farm-City Week focuses on promot-
ing better understanding between
farm and city residents. This year's
observance extends from Nov. 20-26.
Lafayette County Farm Bureau rec-
ognizes the importance of the connec-
tion and partnership that exists be-
tween rural farmers and urban resi-
dents.
This will be the 54th annual obser-
vance of Farm-City Week. More than
16,000 communities participate in the
United States and Canada. A Presi-
dential Proclamation and a joint Con-
gressional Resolution have called for
Farm-City Week observances each
year since the inception of the event.
Lafayette County Farm Bureau be-


lives that events and activities of
Farm-City Week will create a greater
awareness of the types and sizes of
farms in our area. If farm residents
can understand urban growth, and
city residents can understand the con-
cerns of agriculture, there will be a
greater chance of the two working to-
gether to solve common problems
such as environmental and govern-
mental issues.
Here in Lafayette County, agricul-
tural businesses include dairy, row
crops, poultry, beef, forage and pro-
duce.
Lafayette County Farm Bureau rep-
resents agricultural interests in
Lafayette County. Its mission is to im-
plement policies that are developed by
members and provide programs that
will improve economic well-being and
quality of life for farmers and ranchers.

By O. A. Winburn, Jr.

The present "City
Hall" occupies what
long ago served as the
telephone office. The
kind of telephone ser-


)lings
vice available at that
time required "opera-
tors" to make the con-
nections located at each
residence or business. In
order to provide around
the clock telephone ser-
vice, an operator resided
in the building so as to
hear the jingle of the bell
when a call was initiat-
ed. A call was initiated
by picking up the talking
and listening device and
sending a signal to the
"operator" by turning a
small crank on the side
of a box which contained
the dry cell battery pro-
viding the necessary
electric current. Turning


from the past.....


that handle would cause
a bell to tingle at the
switchboard, thereby
eliciting the response
from the operator,
"number please." If the
caller didn't happen to
know the number of the
party being called there
was no delay as the op-
erator, who most often
was Nonie Campbell,
knew the number and if
you gave her the name it
went right through.
Nonie lived in the back
of that building with her
brother, John Campbell
and his three boys; Char-
lie, Baby son and
Franklin.


John was an automo-
bile mechanic and
worked for Mr. Parker at
the Chevrolet dealer-
ship. Charlie was the
oldest boy and worked
as a grocery clerk and
delivery boy while at-
tending high school.
When Pepsi Cola was
put on the market in
those big 12 ounce bot-
tles, Charles soon be-
came the record holder
of the most bottles that
could be consumed at
one time, which was
five. Before the war
broke out, an attempt
was made to organize a
band and Charlie


bought a set of drums
and was making good
progress when the band
instructor suddenly
pulled up and went back
to Live Oak. As previ-
ously noted, Charlie
joined the Navy at the
outset of WWII and died
at sea of pneumonia
while serving in the
North Atlantic.
There were some
buildings added adja-
cent to that on the east
side sometime later on,
40s or 50s. Mr. Beall
came to Mayo and built
a home behind the
Methodist Church facing
SR 51 and established a

dry goods business in a
building next to the tele-
phone office. That little
building that housed the
Mayo theater was there
and Earl Thompson's
pool room was next to it
and then the cold storage
owned by Bud Mor-
gan.... Mr. Morgan
moved his business a
block to the south and
his old place became the
Mayo Fire Department.
The first fire engine
was a pump truck donat-
ed by St. Mary's Paper
Co. I believe. It was a
Dodge Power Wagon
with a water tank with
hose and pumping
equipment and as volun-
teer firefighters we were
instructed in the use of
that equipment. Quite a
step forward from the
two wheeled hose reel
previously in use in
Mayo. The Post Office
occupied that building
on the corner which orig-
inally was the "Dees
Drugstore" and later was
occupied by the Mayo
Free Press, as it's home
for a good while.
The city fire depart-
ment structure also
housed a cell where the
town Marshall could
confine someone who
had been arrested. On
top of that building sat a
large siren which was
used to summon the vol-
unteer fire department
when there was a fire.
That siren was also
sounded at exactly 12 o'-
clock noon, weekdays
and if you happened to
be passing at that exact
moment it could be a
rather startling experi-
ence.
