Former Greenville Police Chief Passes AwayOdell Livingston By Rose Klein Greene Publishing, Inc.This past Monday, on Aug. 19, at around 5:30 p.m., a domestic disturbance between two individuals was reported to the Sheriffs Ofce. The ofce, as a result of the report, obtained a search warrant for 781 NE Cattail Road to investigate the disturbance. The search resulted in discovery of an out building that contained 28 high quality mature marijuana plants and an additional 48 smaller marijuana plants that brought an estimated value of $200,000. Madison County Sheriff, Ben Stewart reports that the out building was sophisticatedly designed to grow the marijuana in its most pure state. The search also discovered the occupants were illegally stealing electricity to power the out building. Arrests have not been made, but charges for cultivation of marijuana and grand theft are under investigation.D o m e s t i c D i s t u r b a n c e R e s u l t s I n $ 2 0 0 0 0 0 D r u g B u s t Picture Submitted Madison County Sheriff, Ben Stewart, takes possession of the discovered marijuana plants on Monday August 19.

Workforce Development already provides some no-cost help with application screening for Taylor and Hamilton County school districts. Pickles had spoken to Workforce Developments Executive Director Sheryl Rehberg about the possibility of the Madison County School District also taking advantage of the service. Id like to see what they could provide (to us), said Pickles. And see if the board would be interested.Madison County Education Association Protests George Williams, President of the Madison County Education Association, addresses the school board. Greene Publishing, Inc. Photo by Lynette Norris, August 20, 2013 By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.At the Aug. 20 School Board meeting, board member VeEtta Hagan asked that two items be pulled from the agenda, because they involved legal contracts and other documents that school board members had not been given until ve minutes before the meeting began. Hagan protested that this was not sufcient time for school board members to review something they were expected to vote on. I do not like getting stuff at the last minute. she said. I feel like I am rubberstamping stuff. One of the items was on the consent agenda, and involved the districts agreement to provide bus transportation for ve JMPHS students, at $911 per student, to be billed semi-annually. School board chair Bart Alford stated that JMPHS didnt really know how many students would need the bus transportation until the rst day of school, an explanation Hagan did not accept. That is a legally binding contract we have never seen before, she said, adding that school board members should be allowed ample time to review such documents, So if I have questions, I can call someone. The second item was on the main agenda, a transition plan for moving Madison Excel School students back to their home schools. It involved a 10-page document handed to members just before the School Board member VeEtta Hagan protests being asked to vote on documents she has just been given moments earlier, an ongoing issue she says she is becoming more vocal about.

On the chest of drawers in my bedroom sits a bottle of cologne. How hard we try to stay clean and smelling good and strive (and the word strive should be emphasized with italics, bolded and underlined in my case) to be attractive. Do I reach my goals? In the natural world, the answer may be yes or no. In the spiritual world, other than just being clean, does it matter to God? Does it matter that my cologne smells good when He is the Rose of Sharon? Does the Neutrogena face wash and shaving cream really help me ght aging when God is the only one who can replace the ravages of time with laugh lines?

Lets not forget too, we are in the hurricane season and storms can leave us without power for a long period of time. Any loss of power can jeopardize the safety of your food. Knowing how to determine if food is safe and how to keep food safe will help minimize the potential loss of food and reduce the risk of foodborne illness. The Food Safety and Inspection Service of USDA has guidelines for consumers facing a power outage. Be prepared for an emergency by having items on hand that dont require refrigeration and can be eaten cold or heated on an outdoor grill. Shelf-stable food, boxed or canned milk, water, and canned goods should be part of a planned emergency food supply. Make sure you have ready-to-use baby formula for infants and pet food. Remember to use these items and replace them from time to time. Be sure to keep a hand-held can opener for an emergency. Consider what you can do ahead of time to store your food safely in an emergency. If you live in a location that could be affected by a ood, plan your food store on shelves that will be safely out of the way of contaminated water. Coolers are a great help for keeping food cold if the power will be out for more than four hours have a couple on hand along with frozen gel packs. When you freezer is not full, keep items close together this helps the food stay cold longer. Always keep meat, poultry, sh and eggs refrigerated at or below 40 F and frozen food at or below 0 F. This may be difcult when the power is out. Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to maintain the cold temperature. The refrigerator will keep food safely cold for about four hours if it is unopened. A full freezer will hold the temperature for approximately 48 hours; if it is half full it will keep for 24 hours if the door remains closed. Digital, dial or instant-read food thermometers and appliance thermometers will help you know if the food is at safe temperatures. It is a good idea to keep appliance thermometers in the refrigerator and freezer at all times, so if you dont have one, get one your next shopping trip. When the power is out, an appliance thermometer will always indicate the temperature in the refrigerator and freezer no matter how long the power has been out. When food reaches temperatures above 40 F and stays at those temperatures for over two hours, it should be discarded. All meat, poultry, seafood, egg and dairy products needs to go. Even salad dressings, opened jars of spaghetti sauce and Worcestershire sauce should be disgarded. Fresh fruit and vegetables are safe, but cooked versions are not. Its hard to part with food, but as the saying goes, When in doubt, throw it out! The University of Florida Extension Madison County is an Equal Employment Opportunity Institution. Keep Food Safe When The Power Goes OutT h e L a r g e A n i m a l V e t At the end of the 2010 elections, conservative patriots felt a surge of hope, with a light appearing at the end of the tunnel of darkness our country had entered with what appeared to be totally failed brakes. Entering the 2012 election cycle brought some disappointments, however, and some betrayals. In the 2012 elections cycle, on a local level, confidence was built and hope became strong again as we got to know "the large animal vet," Ted Yoho. He was teased locally, as I am sure he was elsewhere, regarding the possible interpretations of that phrase. A year ago, that phrase, "the large animal vet," brought to mind visions of horses, cows and other large animals not exactly what might be called the political Washington vision! At this time, however, that vision is becoming more of a man who happens to be a vet, whose character is becoming large. Ted Yoho is sponsoring and cosponsoring numerous bills, which can be followed at: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/contactingcongress.html, including the LIBERT-E Act: H. R. 2399 (title) "To prevent the mass collection of records of innocent Americans under section 501 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, as amended by section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, and to provide for greater accountability and transparency in the implementation of the USA PATRIOT Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978." MOST RECENT COMMUNICATION FROM TED "Dear Friends, Last week we learned more about the egregious and frightening abuses by the National Security Agency in their collection and retention of private data over the years. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum of intelligence collection, I believe we can all agree that blanket surveillance authority to collect data on American citizens is wrong. These actions fly in the face of the very freedom our country was founded upon. Our rights are not negotiable, and our Constitution should not be treated as optional. We need to reform our laws to ensure that we are keeping our country safe as well as providing the oversight needed to prevent the abuses we've seen. I'm a proud cosponsor of the LIBERT-E Act, legislation that limits the Patriot Act's collection authority and requires the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court's opinions to be more transparent. Additionally, I supported the Amash-Conyers amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill that did the same. I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, and I take that oath very seriously. How can we, as the law-making body, enact just laws if their interpretation is a secret? How can we ensure that the Constitution is being upheld? Secret laws are the enemy of liberty, and I will continue to support legislation that ends this broad authority. I've heard from folks all across the district on this issue, and look forward to hearing from more of you in various town halls and events. Together, we must continue to stay engaged on these policies. Our liberty is too important to be political. Take care, Ted 'Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.' Benjamin Franklin" God bless THE LARGE ANIMAL VET!THE MADISON COUNTY REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, August 27, at the Republican Victory Office ALL REPUBLICANS WELCOME Paid for and approved by the Madison County Republican Executive Committee MadisonRepublican@embarqmail.com Germ of Sin Read Jacobs blog at www.jacobbembry.com.

From Page One Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A www.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 23, 2013 World NewsBy Rose Klein Hologram Replaces Human ReceptionistIn England, ofcials in a London council district announced a computerized hologram would replace human receptionists at the front desk of the council building. The hologram, named Shanice, will be projected to appear as if she is sitting behind a desk at the town hall and will be programmed to answer a limited number of questions and to help point people in the right direction. The hologram cost is $19,000, but still costs less than employing a human receptionist, says the council. James Denselow, the councils head of customers and citizens says, This is the sort of space age technology you hear about but never really expect to see, especially in council buildings. The best thing is its going to save us lots of money without compromising our service. Nowadays were constantly having to look at innovative ways to cut costs and they dont come more cutting edge than Shanice.Thief Thwarted With Scalding OilIn Linden, New Jersey, a deli owner thwarted an alleged robber by throwing hot oil on the suspect. Police said the owner of Coss Corner Deli, threw scalding oil on an armed suspect, who pointed a handgun at him and demanded money from the cash register. The deli owner said, Its like 350 degrees. I think that got him, he felt the heat, thats when he ran away. He also stated, I couldnt just stand here and watch him take my money. We dont rob people to make money. We work 12 to 15 hours a day to put bread on the table. Investigators are still attempting to identify the man from surveillance camera footage.Triple-Decker Burger Causes Woman To Dislocate JawIn Liverpool, England, a woman dislocated her jaw after biting into a triple-decker hamburger. Nicola Peate patronized a burger shop in Liverpool, Almost Famous, and felt pain when biting into the large sandwich. Peate thought nothing of the pain, until the next day. The next morning I woke up and felt really ill. The whole side of my head was hurting. She had an x-ray performed and it was discovered Peates jaw was dislocated and that she suffers from Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, where hyper-exible joints are prone to dislocation.Alien Head Buried In GraveyardIn Cakovec, Croatia, Mayor Ivan Stec is asking scientists to study an object found below ground by workers at a graveyard. Stefic says, I know it sounds crazy, but we cant think of any more rational explanation for what weve found. The Mayor has described the object as an alien head and says it smells like mens cologne. Some locals said the head seems to be made from a material like soft rubber and has a beakshaped mouth. One local called the alien head explanation ridiculous and that the object looks like an oddly shaped tree part. The bark could have been soft from the burial. Wood should be easy to discern from other substances like rock and bone. Evacuation Cont. From Page 1ANeither McCreary nor Thomas remained hospitalized. Firefighters Lieutenant Dan Studstill and Ben Pickles were treated and released by EMS at the scene and reported back to the city fire station to serve in a stand-by mode. A hazardous materials team from the Tallahassee Fire Department responded to the chlorine leak, re-entered the danger zone, and confirmed the leak had been shut off. City Fire Chief Bruce Jordan, the onscene incident commander, gave the all-clear signal at approximately 6:50 p.m., Wednesday, and Harvey Greene Drive was re-opened. County Emergency Management Director Tom Cisco activated the county Emergency Operations Center in response to the incident. The EOC served in a coordinating role near the outer perimeter of the incident and remained open until the all-clear sign was given. With two wastewater Department personnel on the sideline, the departments Brent Sims, a certified Wastewater Treatment Facility operator, will assume the role of department chief in the absence of Superintendent McCreary. City and county officials will hold an after-action meeting to discuss how the chlorine leak could have been prevented. They also will discuss the overall response to the incident. Review Cont. From Page 1Ameeting, one that was quite bit more detailed than the three-pager they had received earlier. Madison Excel Principal Sam Stalnaker went over the transition plan, but Hagan protested that his presentation was essentially a workshop and that the board was still being asked to vote on something without sufcient time to absorb the material, reect on it and formulate any questions that needed asking. School board member Karen Pickles said that she concurred with Hagans position about last-minute documents landing in front of the school board members. Were supposed to get our packets a week in advance, she said, and asked about electronic delivery, or even the possibility of alerting school board members to come in early to review something they were going to be asked to vote on. This is why were not progressing as a school, Hagan said, We have personnel that know the rules and regulations and still do as they please. She added that it was disrespectful to board members to slap a contract in front of them ve minutes before a meeting and expect them to approve it. School Superintendent Doug Brown accepted responsibility for the transition plan document, saying that Stalnaker had turned the expanded 10-page document in on time, and Brown in turn had been late in getting copies made and handed out to the board members. The rst item, concerning bus transportation for the JMPHS students, was pulled off the consent agenda, discussed separately and eventually approved 4-1, with Hagan casting the dissenting vote. The item concerning the Madison Excel Schools transition plan will be taken up at the next school board meeting. Superintendent Brown announced that he would begin holding weekly meetings with each board member individually to make sure everyone was regularly updated on school district matters. Education Cont. From Page 1AThe Union is absolutely opposed to any contracting out that affects our employees, Williams stated. Id like to hear whats wrong with the system we already have, other than people not paying attention and doing what theyre supposed to. Williams further advised taking the slow road to any kind of privatization, and added that he would like to be a part of any workshop that involved discussion of any contracting out or privatization of any kind, and have the opportunity to rebut such arguments. The district has a great history of working with employees to resolve issues, without opening the door to privatization, he told the board. Where does it stop? Do we privatize our financial section? ESE? Teachers? Thats my two cents at this point. Board member VeEtta Hagan told the board she had received several complaints about the districts hiring practices; in particular, complaints about inherited jobs and qualified job applicants not being granted interviews at the very least, as required by the unions contract with the district. There is also the requirement that suitably qualified people who are already in the system, i.e., already employed within the district, and who want to transfer into a vacancy, will get the first call. The union contract does not guarantee the right to transfer, but it does give the right to immediate review and interview. In at least one instance, that requirement was believed to have been ignored or disregarded. This was not a personnel issue, according to Williams, but an administrative one. Union representatives needed to sit down and talk with administrators and make sure they understood the contract requirements. The union doesnt force the board to do anything, said Williams. It just protects the rights of employees. Privatization is not the solution. Holding the administrators to the fire is. Another discussion about the lack of proper custodial service at the Central School revealed that custodians who worked at the school were having to buy their own supplies and borrow equipment everything from hedge clippers to buffing machines from other schools. What employees at these schools have to go through sometimes, Williams told the group, is not being given the tools to do their jobs, and then being charged with not doing their jobs. And they ought to have the manpower to do the job. Those are two issues the district has been very slow to address. William concluded. Greene Publishing, Inc.

Church, at the intersection of Parramore and Dade Streets, is celebrating Charles Evans Day, Sunday, Aug. 25 in a special service at their church, beginning at 11 a.m. Rev. Charles Evans has been the pastor at Mt. Zion A.M.E. for the last 14 years where he has lead his congregation in many worship services, and is a familiar face to many at the Winn-Dixie pharmacy, where he has worked for many years, lling prescriptions, answering questions about medications, advising and assisting many more people. Earlier this week, the Madison County Commission passed a resolution in his honor, ofcially naming Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013 as Charles Evans Day. Jerome Wyche, present at the meeting for the reading of the resolution, invited all the commissioners to the Sunday celebration at Mt. Zion and issued a blanket invitation to the citizens of Madison to join them in their celebration honoring their pastor.Church to Celebrate Charles Evans DayBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Bill Gemmill, principal of the James Madison Preparatory High School, appeared before the Madison County School Board to report on the new charter schools second day, with a slideshow depicting the renovation process that turned the old Madison Excel School building into the new JMPHS campus. After distributing some documents and shaking hands with school board members, Gemmill stepped to the podium to relate that he was extremely happy about things going on at JMPHS, the new charter high school focused on a STEM-centered curriculum for college-bound students, and that everyone was looking forward to producing the rst graduating class four years from now. We started out yesterday in that vein, and were going on through the semester and the rest of the year, he said, telling the school board how much the JMPHS board of directors appreciated their help and support for the two years of planning it had taken to make the high school a reality. The school district provides transportation for some of the 42 students and JMPHS students will be allowed to participate in Madison County High School sports and any other extracurricular activities not already provided at the small charter school.

Family Fun, Freestyle For many Americans, financial life seems to be getting more and more complicated. Perhaps thats because more workers bear responsibility for their own retirement savings thanks to the proliferation of 401(k) and other plans. Or maybe its because theres so much information and so many investment choices to sort through. Whatever the case, here are some suggestions that may help to simplify your financial life. 1 S t a r t w i t h a P l a n A little time spent planning now can benefit you later. First, determine short-term financial goals. Do you want to purchase a home in five years? Are your kids heading off to college soon? Is buying a car a top priority next year? Next, think about long-term goals, such as saving for retirement and, if your children are young, college expenses. Estimate how much money youll need to meet each of these goals. 2 B u i l d a B e t t e r B u d g e t Next, look at your current monthly net income and then set up a budget. Creating a budget allows you to see exactly where all your money goes and to determine where you can scale back. After making cuts, invest that money to help pursue your financial goals. 3 I n v e s t S y s t e m a t i c a l l y You can take time and guesswork out of investing with a systematic investing program. With mutual funds, for example, you can make arrangements to automatically invest a specific amount of money on a regular (e.g., monthly) basis, a strategy also known as dollar cost averaging.* In addition to making investing easier, dollar cost averaging could potentially save you money. Youll buy more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when theyre high. Over time, the average cost you pay for the shares may be less than the average price. 4 R e l y o n a n I n v e s t m e n t P r o f e s s i o n a l While the financial world is far more complex than it was just a few years ago, you dont have to go it alone. Think about tapping into your investment professionals expertise before making any major change in your investments. He or she can help you to evaluate how new tax rules and changing market conditions may affect your portfolio and, in turn, your financial goals. Dollar cost averaging involves regular, periodic investments in securities regardless of price levels.

Around Madison County6AMadison Enterprise-Recorderwww.greenepublishing.com Friday, August 23, 2013 Founders Day Is Just Around The CornerAugust is Peanut Picking-Off Time at Hickory Grove United Methodist Church, because Founders Day is just around the corner. Founders Day will be held Saturday, Oct. 19thand it all begins at about 8 a.m. Last Saturday, nearly 40 church members and others picked off nearly 20 bushels of really good peanuts and placed them in the freezers for everyone to enjoy at the church on Founders Day. Thanks to Willie and Bobo Agner who live in the local community, there were plenty of peanuts to pick off this year. The Agners have grown the church peanuts for the past 10 or so years, and we certainly want to thank them and their efforts. Boiled peanuts are certainly a delicacy at Founders Day, and Charles Wooten and Eugene Williams know the secrets of making them absolutely great, with the correct amount of salt. Come hungry to Founders Day and eat until your heart is content. Do not forget that there will be plenty of great food at Founders Day again this year. From homemade ice cream to fried pork skins, to boiled corn on the cob to great smoked barbecue sandwiches, there will be plenty of food. Founders Day has been going on for over 20 years, and this year looks to be perhaps the best one ever. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy a family oriented day at Hickory Grove and just have a good time! Plan to attend.

S h e r y l R e h b e r g o f W o r k f o r c e D e v e l o p m e n t V i s i t s K i w a n i s By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Executive Director of the North Florida Workforce Development Board, Sheryl Rehberg, visited the Kiwanis Club of Madison, speaking briefly on the changing work environment and being able to adapt quickly to such changes; as an illustration of the importance of such adaptability, as well as understanding the interconnectedness of our lives, and realizing that when the least among us is threatened, we are all threatened, she referenced a favorite childrens story about a small mouse who tries to rally help among the barnyard inhabitants when the farmer puts mousetraps in his house. The chicken, pig and cow dont understand how the threat applies to them and shrugs off the mouses concerns. But then, a poisonous snake gets his tail caught in one of the traps. Thrashing around in the dark, he bites the farmers wife, who has come to investigate the noise. After the wife comes home from the hospital, the farmer kills the chicken to make chicken soup for her. He slaughters the pig to feed all the friends and neighbors who come by to see the wife and wish her well. However, the wife gets worse and dies...and then the farmer butchers the cow to feed all the friends, neighbors and relatives who turn out for the funeral. When speaking of the work the Kiwanis members have done in Madison, Rehberg said that it was inspirational to see people working together doing good for the children and the community, in keeping with the clubs mission statement of changing the world, one child and one community at a time.

By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.Shortly before school started, the 4-H students had just nished up their summer quilting classes at the County Extension ofce. Not only did they complete quilt projects, many of them also learned enough additional basic sewing skills to make simple shorts, handbags, pajama bottoms and capri-length pants. They also tie-dyed tee shirts with Miss Becky Bennett, made pincushions and created macram bracelets. All of it was on display for the nal day of the summer quilting class, taught by four members of both the Garden Club and Pine Tree Quilters: Dolly Ballard, Jeanette Mitchell, Louanna Forness and Laura Coleman, and they had lots of help from Teresa Williams, who works at the County Extension ofce. Miss Teresa is a saint, said Ballard. She has loads of patience. Williams, married to Lee Williams and mother of two sons, Justin and Joey, loves the music of Christian rapper B Shock and loves being around children. A lifelong resident of the county, she grew up on a farm as one of ve children, learning the art of sewing, canning vegetables and cooking early in life...but she was never in a 4-H Club. We lived too far out, she said, and there were always chores that had to be done immediately after school. But even though 4-H wasnt in the cards for her, her father always told her, One day, youll teach 4H. She has worked for the county extension ofce for the last eight years, where part of her duties have included teaching 4-H classes. Kids are my life, she said, looking around the room. I love em. Im in my element right now. In the meantime, she is also attending Saint Leo University to become an elementary school teacher. Some of the other children in the quilting class were drawn to it by a love of sewing they had learned at home. My mom taught me to sew when I was eight, said Olivia Graham, now 12, who was in the quilting class last year as well. This year, she saved up her money to buy her own pair of sewing shears. I like to look at it when its nished and see what Ive accomplished. Abbie Reeves, 10, also likes seeing her nished project. Her favorite part of sewing is doing the running stitches. Seven-year-old Nadia Waller likes the actual sewing part. This summer was her rst year in the quilting class. Kayla Reeves, 11, also loves seeing the nished project, and stays busy. She talked about the numerous camps she had been to so far this summer, rattling off a list that included tness camp, Cherry Lake camp, and a week of Vacation Bible School. Eight-year-old Stephanie Hasty was one of four siblings in the class that included her sisters Jessica (nine), Brittany (11) and her little brother Justin Blake who had just turned six the day before. Jessica loves looking through the colorful fabrics, picking out what she likes and practicing her stitches by making bags one of her projects was a little fabric wallet and says she would like to be a teacher some day. Justin Blake has also been busy, making himself a pillow, a small quilt and a stuffed green snake that he thinks took about four hours to make. I love it that theyre learning to sew, said their mother, Peggy Hasty, assistant principal at North Hamilton Elementary. At the end of the last class, they gathered around a table for an ice cream party to celebrate their accomplishments and to sing Happy Birthday to Justin Blake Hasty. But that isnt the end of the story. The summer quilting class is over, but the Friday after-school sewing club started up Aug. 9 and will continue to meet every Friday after school.

Small hogs sold for from $10.00 to $18.00. 450 head of hogs were offered to sale. Thomas Odom of R. 2, Madison, was winner of one of the $25 war bonds given daily during the tobacco warehouses for the sheet of tobacco bringing the most money. Mr. Odoms winning sheet weight 322 pounds and brought 48c lb. Elmer J. Thompson, formerly of Lee, graduated the past week in the Armament department of the Army Air Forces technical training command at Lowry Field, Colorado. The Baptist Junior boys had a swimming party and sh fry outing Tuesday afternoon at Blue Springs, given by their teacher, Mr. W.T. Sowell, assisted by his son Thurman and General Clayton. Those attended included Alvin Jones, Preston Green, Gene Harris, Malvin Vaughn, Carrol Lamb, Lavaughn Harris, James Parker and Buddie Holton. August 21, 1953 The Annual Robert Morris Founders event of the Order of eastern Star will be having a picnic in the Suwannee River Park, at Ellaville 6 p.m. Thursday, August 27. District 6, including Madison, Greenville, Perry, Mayo and Monticello will participate. Mr. and Mrs. C W Hiers announce the birth of a daughter, Rebecca Jo, Aug 7, in a Valdosta hospital. The baby weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Shackleford of Cherry Lake are announcing the arrival of a son, August 5th at Madison County Memorial Hospital. The young man has been named Richard Clayton. August 23, 1963 Due to the continued increase in the cost of food supplies, especially milk, which will cost two cents more per pint this year, we nd it necessary to increase the price of the elementary school lunch from twenty-ve cents to thirty cents. Mr. Maury J Blalock, Jr. was the guest of honor at a catsh supper Tuesday night, August 6, at the Madison Restaurant private dining room. During the supper, Maury received a number of useful gifts. Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Strickland announce the birth of a baby girl weighing 6 pounds and 6 oz. on Tuesday August 20. The little lady has been named Connie Gail. One of the ordinances we observe in our church is that of Believers baptism. We were blessed to be able to baptize Emma Grace Newman, daughter of Isaac & Lori Newman. Emma Grace asked Jesus into her heart during Vacation Bible School. The Worship Choir sang The Cross Before Me as their special. It is based on Hebrews 12:2. Brother Gabe used as his text, John 15:9-13, for his sermon entitled Abiding in Christ. Verse 9. "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. The word abide means to remain, continue, dwell, endure or tarry. Dont rush or, in todays terms, dont email or text me. So we are to abide/tarry in Gods love. Verse 10. "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. How do we abide in this love as Jesus did? By keeping His commandments. We abide in His love when we obey His commandments. Verse 11, the key verse of this passage. "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. The point of abiding in Him and keeping His commandments is JOY. Verse 12. "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. This is a summary statement. Abide = Obey = Love. Be careful not to minimize this love. How much did Jesus love you and me? He stretched out His arms of love and died for our sin. Verse 13. "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. Its hard to explain this verse. Jesus was probably speaking of denying oneself. We are to lay down our own agendas for the sake of others. This yoke of obedience will then make our joy complete.
