An Illinois man who robbed the
Lafayette State Bank in Mayo last

Police say Jacob P. Launius of
Murphysboro, Illinois entered the
bank at about 11:24 a.m. and
placed a handwritten note before
the teller saying he had a gun and
was robbing the bank. The note re-

13-year-old Devin Walker is making

Two years ago 13-year-old
Devin Walker of Mayo could-
n't reach the gas peddle in his
dad's racecar. Two months
ago he crashed into a wall at
60 mph. Two weeks ago he
flipped his car on a turn. In
two seconds he'll grip the
wheel of his black and orange


Chevy Cavalier and battle for
first place at the Ocala Motor
Speedway dirt track, driving
at speeds over 75 mph.
Devin is calm as he repeats
Philippians 4:13, "I can do all
things through Christ."
His engine revs.

Devin leads the first four
laps as he watches fourteen of
his competitors race for posi-

The 21 car passes him on the
fifth lap and Troy Sullivan in
the 31 car moves in to chal-
lenge Devin for second. Devin
holds his own, racing side by
side against Sullivan through
the turns.
"This is where things got
tricky," Devin said as he
watched a tape of the race. "It
was getting close."
On the 13th lap Devin
I and Sullivan pass the 21

Can you believe that
Christmas is just around
the corner? Everywhere
you look, holiday prepa-
rations are in full swing,
homes are being deco-
rated, gifts purchased,
holiday menus planned,
and everyone trying to
get organized enough to
include all the celebra-
tions! As a matter of the
heart, no other holiday
can compare. Whether
you are filled with warm
memories or painful re-
minders of holidays past
and are excited or dread-
ing the one to come, it is
a rare heart that is alto-
gether indifferent to
Christmas. Since our
hearts are so affected by
this holiday, is it possi-
ble to put our hearts in
order for Christmas and
experience a new kind of

celebration this year?
For the next month, I in-
vite you to join "Heart
Matters" each week as
we take a look at Christ-
mas through the eyes of
Mary, the one who was
chosen to bring forth the
very first Christmas cele-
bration.
In Luke 1:26-27, the
Bible introduces Mary
by giving us some im-
portant information:
"In the sixth month,
God sent the angel
Gabriel to Nazareth, a
town in Galilee, to a vir-
gin pledged to be mar-
ried to a man named
Joseph, a descendent of
David. The virgin's
name was Mary."
Here we get Mary's
biography: where she
was, what she was, and
who she was going to be!


Choose one of our potted living Christmas
trees! After the Christmas season plant it
and next year you'll have a tree to decorate
outdoors!

These are some great
questions in our own
preparation for Christ-
mas: Where are you this
Christmas...looking for-
ward or filled with
dread? How would you
describe yourself...hap-
py or struggling? What
are your
expectations...something
new or more of the
same? Take a few mo-
ments for an honest in-
ventory.
Next we read that the
angel Gabriel found
Mary in Nazareth, a
small town in the region
of Galilee. According to
the Bible, there was
nothing spectacular
about the town itself. In
fact, in the book of John
1:44-46 the disciple
Nathaniel asked the
question, "Nazareth!
Can anything good
come from there?" Like
Nathaniel, we can often
get the idea that nothing
good can come from
where we are, whether it


be the place we live, the
family we belong to, or
even a difficult situation
we may be in. Rest as-
sured that just as
straight as Gabriel flew
to find Mary, God
knows exactly where
you are and He has a
plan for your life. His
eyes are on you! Think
about a difficult place,
situation, or relationship
you may be experienc-
ing, and ask
yourself...what purpose
might God have for me
in this place?
A final thing we dis-
cover about Mary in this
verse is that she is a vir-
gin. While the word vir-
gin is defined as "an un-
married woman who
has remained sexually
pure," it is interesting
that Webster's dictio-
nary gives an additional
definition: "free from
impurity or stain." Too
often, the holidays are a
time of depression and
grief for those with un-

pleasant memories,
stains from the past.
Whether these result
from your mistakes or
someone else's, Satan
loves nothing more than
to resurrect feelings of
guilt and shame over the
things from the past to
prevent you from cele-
brating the birth of the
One who came to pay
that debt for you! If we
ask God to forgive us (or
help us forgive others)
those past stains, He is
faithful to do just that. (1
John 1:9) God has not
only forgiven, He for-
gets, and He wants you
to move on to greater
things He has planned
for your life, (just like He
had for Mary). In 2
Corinthians 5:17 we are
assured that if anyone is
in Christ, he or she is a
new creation, the old has
gone and the new is here!
What a great way to be-
gin celebrating the
Christmas season, be-
cause YOUR heart really
does matter!

Why have you 10 No-Cost Tips for Saving Energy


forsaken me?


By David H. Matier, Doc-
tor of Pastoral Counseling
dmatier@windstream.net

"My God, my God,
why hast thou forsaken
me? Why art thou so far
from helping me, and
from the words of my
roaring? (Psalm 22:1).
Probably it would do
you good to read the
22nd Psalm and see the
awful description of cru-
cifixion that is given; a
thousand or so years be-
fore it was used as a
form of capitol punish-
ment; a method of slow-
ly and painfully putting
men to death. And it was
telling the Israelites how
their Savior was to die.
"And about the ninth
hour Jesus cried with a
loud voice, saying, E-li,
E-li, la-ma sabach-tha-
ni? That is to say, My
God, my God why hast
thou forsaken me?"
(Matthew 27:46).
One pastor said recent-
ly, in his Sunday sermon,
"a lot of people think He
cried this out because He
took on all of the sins of
the world," and goes on
to say, "I prescribe to
something that William
P. Young writes, 'I don't
think that is the case.
God is a God of love.
Nothing will ever sepa-
rate us from His love. I
don't think that God
turned His back on His
Son. I think God was
right there in the middle
of it, this was designed
by God but I think Jesus
was feeling what we
have all felt when we go


through unbearable
pain.' I think Jesus was
feeling that God, our Fa-
ther, was at a dis-
tance...."
Everyone reading this
has felt forsaken of God
at one time or another;
when your mortgage
was being foreclosed -
on a home you had been
working for, paying the
payments on for so long
but now due to losing a
job, due to the poor econ-
omy, you are jobless you
ask, "God, why have you
forsaken me?" Or maybe
it was when that loved
one was told he/she
only had a few weeks or
months to live. Or you
lost a child due to an
auto accident because
the other driver was
careless. You cried out in
the night many a time,
"OH GOD, WHY?" But
it's not the same!
On the cross Jesus took
our sin debt upon Him-
self; He became sin.
"FOR THE WAGES OF
SIN IS DEATH..." (Ro-
mans 6;23 emphasis
writer's) means that SEP-
ARATION is the result
of sin whether it is phys-
ical separation from our
loved ones who pass
away or, for human be-
ings, the ultimate death,
eternal separation from
God in a place the Bible
refers to as Hell. But on
the cross Jesus was bear-
ing all of our sin in His
own body. FOR THOSE
FEW HOURS ON THE
CROSS, GOD THE FA-
THER AND GOD THE
HOLY SPIRIT COULD
NOT LOOK UPON JE-
SUS BECAUSE HE HAD
BECOME SIN for you
and me. MY GOD, MY
GOD WHY HAST
THOU FORSAKEN ME!
Yes, we've all felt for-
saken by God but it's
not the same as what Je-
sus was experiencing on
the cross and to say it
was is to play His experi-
ence down- to dumb
down the Gospel.


Looking for fast, free
ways to save on energy
around the home this
winter? According to
Tom Kraeutler, host of
the nationally-syndicat-
ed home improvement
radio show, The Money
Pit, there are many com-
mon-sense things you
can do everyday in your
home to lower energy
bills.
Tip #1 Lock your
windows. Don't just
close them, but lock
them to create an air-
tight seal that keeps out
air leaks and drafts.
Tip #2 Plug power-
draining computers and
electronic equipment
into a power strip with a
switch, so they can all be
easily turned off when
not in use.
Tip #3 Turn off lights
when leaving a room.
Tip #4 Get free solar
heat by opening the
blinds and shades on
your windows during
the day.
Tip #5 Chill out and
do your laundry in cold
water.
Tip #6 Add a
sweater and lower the

thermostat. For every de-
gree you lower your
thermostat, you may be
able to save 5 percent on
heating costs.
Tip #7 Run only full
loads in your dishwash-
er.
Tip #8 Remove lint
often from your clothes
dryer and its outside
vent. And, run your dry-
er in the evening, when
the extra heat helps
warm your house.
Tip #9 Close the
doors (and the heating
vents) in rooms with
minimal use, like walk-
in closets, laundry rooms
and guest bedrooms, to
reduce heat use in those
areas.
Tip #10 Snuggle up
under more blankets at
night and turn your heat
down lower to reduce
energy costs.
"Small things can add
up to big energy savings
in the home," says
Kraeutler. "You'll be sur-
prised to find your ener-
gy bills dropping by 20,
30 or more dollars each


month when you consis-
tently make the effort."
While free common-
sense practices can help
you save, Kraeutler
points out that a home
can only be as energy-ef-
ficient as the products in
it. "Older appliances,
windows and lack of in-
sulation can suck the en-
ergy out of the home
every day causing your
heating and cooling
costs to soar," says
Kraeutler. "Whenever
possible, it's important
to invest in energy-effi-
cient products that are
marked with the ENER-
GY STAR label."
One of the areas of the
home subject to extreme
loss of heating and cool-
ing can be older win-
dows. "I've been in
homes where people put
heavy drapes and plastic
wrap over the windows
to stop air drafts," says
Kraeutler. "That's not
the solution. Investing in
energy-efficient ENER-


GY STAR qualified win-
dows makes your home
more comfortable and
instantly lowers energy
bills. For my money, En-
ergy Tax Credit glass
packages in Simonton
vinyl replacement win-
dows bring the best val-
ue to homeowners."
To help homeowners
understand replacement
windows, Kraeutler,
along with his co-host
Leslie Segrete, authored
a free bonus chapter to
their popular book, "My
Home, My Money Pit:
Your Guide to Every
Home Improvement Ad-
venture." The free chap-
ter, which was prepared
with help from experts
at Simonton Windows, is
titled "Your Complete

Agriculture A very


important commodity!


L-R Donnie Hamlin, Commissioner and Rod Land,


Farm City Week Proclamatioi

Linda Smith
In celebration of Farm
City Week, Rod Land,
president of Lafayette
County Farm Bureau, in-
troduced the guest
speaker for the local,
weekly Rotary meeting,
Bob Richardson.
Richardson has been
with Florida Farm Bu-
reau for 34 years. He is
currently the Director of
Finance.
Richardson shared
with Rotarians the im-
portance of agriculture in
Lafayette county and in
our nation. He stated
that Agriculture is im-


portant, as well as being
a part of many local
family's heritage. Many
local farmers have had
farming in their families
for generations. But, as
Richardson stated,
"things are definitely
changing for our farmers
and most of them not so
good."
According to Richard-
son many small farmers
such as dairy farmers,
have had to join with
others to form a larger
entity, in order to make
it work. In other words,
"the small farmer can
hardly make it anymore,
they are being driven
out."
Richardson shared
that there are many fac-
tors that have led to the
downfall of small farms.
Total farming expendi-
tures are way up, and in-
come for the farmer is
down....... a losing
proposition.
Yet, Richardson
stressed how important
Agriculture is to our
community and nation.
It is especially important
to Lafayette County as
this county was built on
free enterprise, it is a

uuest speaker bOD ti-lcnara-
son, Florida Farm Bureau,

part of our heritage and
well worth saving.
Agriculture also has a
financial impact on the
county as well. If the
farmer makes a good
profit, then he has more
to spend in the county,
therefore helping out
others as well like local
merchants. As Richard-
son stated, "just ask the
local banker, he knows
when agriculture has a
good year or not."
At the conclusion of
the program, Rod Land,
Lafayette Farm Bureau
president and Donnie
Hamlin, County Com-
missioner, signed the
Proclamation for Farm-
City Week.

NFCC Artist Angels bring poetry to

life for local students and educators


North Florida Com-
munity College's Artist
Series Angels hosted
three creative and inter-
active poetry perfor-
mances by "Poetry
Alive!" Oct. 22. NFCC
traveled the first "Poetry
Alive!" performance to
Greenville Elementary
School reaching approxi-
mately 100 students.
Later that morning the
show returned to the
NFCC campus where
the group led a work-
shop for local English
teacher's grades 6th
through 12th during
NFCC's annual English
Summit. The final per-
formance was enjoyed
on campus by NFCC
students, Aucilla Christ-
ian Academy and the
College Reach Out Pro-
gram (CROP).
"Poetry Alive!" per-
formers, Ken and Na-
dine Delano, encour-
aged audience participa-
tion and got several
high school and college
students on stage to as-
sist with their live poet-
ry interpretations.
At Greenville Elemen-
tary School nearly all of


the 100 plus students at-
tending "Poetry Alive!"
raised their hands to
volunteer and act out
poetry on stage. Al-
though they couldn't
bring each child on
stage, the performers
did a great job engaging
the students, getting the
entire audience involved
and sharing the magic of
poetry with the stu-
dents.
"Thanks so much for
bringing this presenta-
tion to our students,"
said Greenville Elemen-
tary School Curriculum
Coordinator Nora Walk-
er. "They got to experi-
ence poetry in a whole
new light."
Following the perfor-
mances, students attend-
ing were encouraged to
visit the "Poetry Alive!"
website, www.poet-
ryalive.com
ryalive.com>, to find
out more about poems
recited during the show,
to check out the student
portion of the site and to
submit their own poetry
for recognition.
"Poetry Alive!" found-


ed in 1984 and based in
North Carolina, per-
forms all over the United
States. This is the second
consecutive year they
have visited the NFCC
campus and hosted per-
formances at a Madison
County public school.
The performances
were sponsored by the
NFCC Artist Series An-
gels, a non-profit organi-
zation striving to pro-
vide cultural enrichment
opportunities to the com-
munity, while support-
ing the growth of the
NFCC Artist Series and
NFCC Children's The-
ater.

I feel the need to write
this little piece before I
forget it. Last night,
(11/16/09) while watch-
ing the History channel,
there were movies of the
war in the Pacific and the
film was interspersed
with comments of the
correspondent that took
them.
One particular seg-
ment tweaked my ears
as I recognized the corre-
spondent that had been
there and taken those
pictures and movies. The
name, Robert Sherrod
brought an immediate
rush of adrenaline as the
announcer stated that
Mr. Sharrod had been
there at Tarawa as a cor-
respondent from Time
Magazine to chronicle
that invasion and record
it for the war depart-
ment. The war depart-
ment's initial concern
was to have documenta-
tion so that the effective-
ness of the tactics being
used could be evaluated
and changes made if nec-
essary.
My memory turned
back the clock some 60
years to the time when I
met that gentleman, Mr.
Sharrod. (The announcer
pronounced his name as
Sha-Rod, not the way I

learned it back then
which was more like
Share-ud).
Mr. Sharrod had come
to Mayo to visit his fa-
ther and sister who were
living in Mayo. The elder
Mr. Sharrod, a widower,
lived there with his
daughter after having re-
tired as a sawmill opera-
tor and timber man from
around Gainesville. I
came to know him quite
well and enjoy his pres-
ence as he spent many
hours in my daddy's
store, the meeting place
around Mayo at that
time.
One day an automo-
bile pulled up in front of
the store and out
stepped the elder Mr.
Sharrod, followed close-
ly by another, consider-
ably younger fellow. As
it turned out, Mr. Shar-
rod had brought his son,
Robert down to the store
to meet my daddy, a per-
son that he had devel-
oped a sort of kinship
with over those years
spent at the store. After
he introduced his son to
my daddy and his son
(me), the conversation
turned to other matters. I
learned that the younger
Mr. Sharrod was at that
time, I believe the man-
aging editor of Time
Magazine and had previ-
ously been a "war corre-
spondent" chronicling
the war in the Pacific as
the Marines went about
their "Island Hopping
Campaign" on the way
to Japan.
Further jogging of my
memory turned up
things I had heard as a
youngster when the local
"Mayo Women's Bridge
Club" met at the Win-
burn home, which oc-

dinner and all the trim-

(Mr. Sharrod's sister)
had reported that her
brother was with some
magazine and was a war
correspondent which
didn't really register at
that particular moment.
A little research turned
up some more interest-
ing facts concerning this
brave gent.
He had graduated
from the University of
Georgia in 1935 and


went to work as a re-
porter for some maga-

correspondent he had
covered the landings
and fighting as the Unit-

volunteers) took the war
to the Japs in the South
Pacific where they were
dug in, hoping to pre-
vent an invasion of their
homeland of Japan. On

pinned down on the
beach along with the
Marines after coming
under heavy fire from
Japanese pillboxes

the finish line.
"Go baby!" Devin's
mom, Stephanie Walk-
er, shouts from the
stands. His dad, Heath
Walker, anxiously
turns his ball cap in his
hands. The two cars are
a blur as the checkered
flag waves.
The crowd stands
and cheers as the 4'5"
winner climbs from his
car.
"Take us through
those final two laps,
young man," track an-
nouncer Joe Linebarier
asked Devin moments
after his win.
"It was awesome," he
responded. "The car
felt good."
"What are you feel-
in'?"
"I'm feeling' good."
"It felt good" was all
Devin had to say about
his win. "Devin's not
one to talk about him-
self," said Stephanie.
"He doesn't even talk
about his win."
With a big win and
several top five finishes
so far this season,
Devin's racing speaks
for itself.
Devin learned to race
by watching his dad
and taking mental
notes since he was five.

portedly said he would
"shoot somebody" if the
teller alerted anyone,
according to a press re-
lease from the Lafayette
County Sheriff's Office.
The note instructed
the teller to place the
money in a bag and
give him the keys to her
car, as well as write
down the make, model,
and location of the vehi-
cle. Launius left the
building with an unde-
termined amount of
cash and fled in the vic-

do," he said.
According to his
mother, "he's a natur-
al."
"No one ever showed
him anything," said
Stephanie. "He never
had a practice run,"
added Heath. "His first
race was his first time
driving a race car, and
he placed top five."
Although Health was
the original racecar dri-
ver in the family, it was
Stephanie who encour-
aged her son to save up
enough money to buy
his first racecar.
Stephanie said she no-
ticed Devin's natural
talent when he was still
playing with Power
Wheels cars. "He didn't
bounce off walls like
other kids," she said.
"He drove it."
The soft-spoken
teenager was born to
lead laps.
Convincing his dad
to let him race was not
easy, however.
"It was the fear factor
of him wrecking that
made me hesitate,"
said Heath. "I'm very
proud of him. But, to
be honest, it scares the
crap out of me."

Devin are not unknown

lice. Still holding the
bag of money, he re-
portedly attempted to
flee on foot but was
quickly apprehended.

tracks as teenagers.
Besides, Devin's car
was built by his dad,
with every safety pre-
caution taken. After he
crashed into a wall in a
turn, Devin said he was
ready to go back out
and race the next day. It
was the dents in his car
he was concerned
about.
Still, it's Devin's small
size that worries his lit-
tle sister, Logan, 8.
"He's too small to get
hurt," she said as she
watched a video of one
of Devin's wrecks. But
after Devin's big win in
Ocala, Logan said,
"Mom, did you see all
those people cheering
Devin on?"
"Yes, did it make you
happy to be his sister?"
Stephanie asked.
"It about made me
cry," said Logan.
However, winning
against men two and
three times his age, and
receiving a rare stand-
ing ovation at Ocala's


dirt track was not
Devin's proudest mo-
ment. That came after
the dust had settled
and most of the specta-
tors had gone home.
Danny Lasoski, a star
in the World of Out-
laws sprint car series,
had been watching
from the stands. After
the race he walked
down to the pits and
handed Devin $200.
"He said he wanted to
be my first sponsor,"
said Devin. Lasoski told
Devin he was the same
age when he won his
first race.
"I want to do the
same thing for kids one
day," said Devin. "He
said I'm his hero."
And how did that
make Devin feel?
"Good," he said.
Since his win in
Ocala, Devin has spo-
ken little of the night.
On the racetrack, Devin
said he so much lives in
the moment, that he
usually only remembers
