Lorene Watson killed this
strange-looking deer in
Rock Level hunting club on
Thursday, November 5th. It
appears to be a rare Piebald
deer.


The piebald trait is reces-
sive and it can become
prevalent in areas of deer
overpopulation. Most of
them have very short lives
and suffer from multiple


physical deformities. This
one's legs were of differing
lengths, and it had an abnor-
mally large skull plate and
curly antlers.

Billy Keen Sentenced


United States Attorney for

Florida, today announced
the November 9, 2009 sen-
tencing of former Dixie
County Building and Zon-
ing Inspector, Willie "Billy"
Keen, Jr. (60) to 78 months

gram fraud, conspiracy,
bribery, and making false
statements.

Keen was convicted of fed-
eral program fraud follow-
ing a two-day trial in March
of this year in the United
States District Court in
Gainesville. The evidence
at trial showed that between
March and October 2003,
Keen, who was then em-
ployed as the building and
zoning inspector for Dixie
County, fraudulently ap-


Chairman Marvin Hunt awarded Allen Pendarvis for 31
years of County service at the County Commission meet-
ing on Thursday. Congratulations, Mr. Pendarvis.

plied for Community Devel-
opment Block Grant and
State Housing Initiative
Program funds to renovate
his personal home.

Because Keen did not finan-
cially qualify for these
funds and was otherwise
prohibited from receiving
the funds as a result of his
position, Keen applied for
the funds in his girlfriend's
name, falsely representing
that she was the owner of
his home.

During the course of 2003,
Keen fraudulently obtained
approximately $32,000 in
grant funds, which he used
to renovate his house. Tes-
timony at trial established
that after Keen learned he
was being investigated, he


removed documents from
the county clerk's official
files and substituted a deed
that purported to convey his
house to his girlfriend.
The deed conflicted with
records previously pro-
duced to the FBI by the
clerk of court.

In addition to the 78- month
sentence of imprisonment,
the Court ordered the forfei-
ture of Keen's house in Old
Town, Florida and ordered
him to pay $32,010 in restitu-
tion.

Sentencing of Keen's co-de-
fendants, Driggers and
Land, in the bribery case. is
set fob January 4, 2010 be-
fore Chief United States
District Judge Stephan P
Mickle.

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


2 out of 3 ain't bad


After getting their butts kicked a year ago, Republicans
won 2 out of 3 significant races in special elections held last
week. Two states elected Republican governors, while New
York's 23rd Congressional District elected a Democrat to
the US House of Representatives.

Virginia elected Robert McDonnell Governor in what could
be considered a landslide, and he was accompanied by GOP
candidates who won contests for lieutenant governor and
attorney general. Meanwhile, New Jersey elected Republi-
can Chris Christie Governor.

Both states went for Obama a year ago, and this is especial-
ly significant in the case of New Jersey, because the Presi-
dent personally went there and campaigned for Democrat
Jon Corzine. That race also included a third party candi-
date who is believed to have diluted Christie's support; but
neither that, nor the endorsement of the President were
enough to pull out a win for Corzine in a state that is gener-
ally considered "safe" for Democrats.

The New York congressional race was more like a comedy'
of errors than an election. The upstate district had gone Re-
publican since the Civil War, but they were fielding ultra-
liberal candidate Bebe Scuzzafava. This woman champi-
oned everything from partial birth abortion to gay mar-
riage to doing away with the secret ballot at union elections
'(they call it "card check"). In other words, pretty much the
whole liberal agenda.

The Democrats fielded Bill Owens, who may have made the
Guinness Book of.Records by breaking four campaign
promises on his first day in office. These largely amounted
to supporting Speaker Nancy Palosi's radical agenda, how-
ever I expect Ms. Scuzzafava would have done so as well, so
in that case, what's the difference?

The maverick in that race was Douglas Hoffman, who ran
as a Conservative. He started with little name recognition,
but he picked up endorsements from Sarah Palin and Fred
Thompson, plus a lot of support from citizens groups. First
thing you know, he's looking like a possible winner. So, at
the last minute, Bebe Scuzzafava drops out and throws her
support to Bill Owens, apparently preferring any Democrat
to an independent conservative who would no doubt have
hooked up with the Republicans, had he been elected.'

For comic relief, we have House Speaker Nancy Pelosi de-
claring "victory" in last week's elections. Maybe she's not
counting the two gubernatorial wins racked up by Republi-
cans. Could be she doesn't grasp the fact that the upstate
New York congressional win was a fluke. Remember, this
woman is next in line to become President if Joe Biden
slips on a banana peel. Scary, isn't it?

I didn't vote for Jimmy Carter in 1976, and he was a disas-
ter as President; but in a way, I'm sort of glad he did win,
because it left the country recognizing that we needed a
man of Ronald Reagan's caliber in that office.

Bill Clinton started with a partisan majority in Congress
when he took office in 1993, but his clout was severely limit-
ed by a Republican Congress two years later. As a result,
Bill's bimbo eruptions were amusing and nothing really
disastrous happened during his eight
years in office. No hostage crisis, and
Carter had already given away the
Panama Canal.


If the two Republican victories can
be taken as an indication that the
party is getting its act together,
they'll nominate Doug Hoffman next
year, in which case Bill Owens might
prove to be a one-very-short-term
Congressman. And if the American
public are tuned in to last Saturday
night's Pelosi-led constitutional car-
nage in the House of Representa-
tives, Owens won't be the only mem-
ber of that astute body to join the
ranks of the unemployed.

Holding out for a hero


M "' yf Kathy McKinney

.' -' Lessons we can learn from the tragic Fort
Hood shootings: One armed nut can get
through almost any sort of security setup, more sane people
should carry personal weapons on themselves at all times
for the public good, and the government needs to change the.
rules to accommodate this, somebody seriously needs to re-
think having followers of Islam in the armed forces, and big
heroes come in small packages.

Kimberly Munley, as I'm sure you all know by now, was the
30-something mom of two girls, aged 12 and 3 who took out
the Fort Hood Shooter.- She stands a whopping 5 foot 4 inch-
es and probably weighs 120 pounds soaking wet. She's from
North Carolina and is married to a Fort Hood Special Forces,
officer.

I can't help but hope that the piece of trash she stopped,
Nadil Hasan, knows who stopped his little spree. I hope one
day very soon he wakes in muslim heaven hoping for his 72
virgins and Allah says, "Sorry, dude, you
got taken out by'a chick. We've had a chat
with the people over at Hindu heaven and The world is no
we've arranged for you to be reincarnated want of
as a pig in a Arkansas sausage factory Af- or
ter you finish up there, you're scheduled for
a stint as a stray dog on the streets of Bei- It is perishing f(
jing, and we'll just play it by ear after that." of courage


Can you imagine doing what that little
woman did? She reportedly came around a
corner and spotted the shooter and started
firing. She took bullets in both thighs. She got hit in the
wrist. She was bleeding and hurt. He charged her, with two
handguns blazing.

OK...stop right here. Any mom reading this knows that the
first thing that would have gone through her mind is "I can't
get killed, I have kids to raise." Mrs. Munley's kids are from
her first marriage, not by the current one, so you have to
guess that fear for what would happen to her girls if some-
thing happened to her flashed through her mind. Any nor-
mal woman would have ducked behind something big and
solid and hoped that the bad man went away. Or maybe that
somebody else would come deal with this and save her. If it
were a movie, a big, good-looking guy with a cleft chin
would have saved her after her high-heel shoe tripped her
into twisting her ankle. That's how girls are supposed to
roll, isn't it?

After all, nobody would have thought one bit less of her. She
was shot. THREE TIMES. She had a toddler at home who
needed her. Self-preservation is the most powerful drive we
have. (Next to maybe the drive for bacon, but I digress.)
Yeah, well, not so much for Kim. She may have thought all
those things. Heck, I'm fairly sure she wanted to duck be-
hind something...but there was a madman shooting soldiers.
She was trained for that. She was armed.


Dear Editor:
American Legion Under Attack

The Joe D. White Post in Stein-
hatchee is threatened of being
closed. It needs every Veteran
in Taylor and Dixie County's
help.

A little background informa-
tion:

The Steinhatchee Post received
its charter in 1952. In 1973 the
property the Post sits on today
was donated in memory of a
Veteran's son. It is a "members
only" club and guests must be
with a member to visit.

In 1983, ten years after the Le-
gion built its Post in its present
location, the Taylor County
Commission passed an ordi-
nance disallowing alcoholic bev-
erages to be sold within 2500
feet of. any school. Both the lo-
cal grocery market and the con-
venience store are closer to the
school than the American Le-
gion Post. Both stores sell alco-
holic beverages to the public.
Both have also been in business
since before the ordinance was
passed. The.American Legion
is a private club and only sells
drinks to members or their
guests. When it was built in
1973, there was no prohibition
on having an internal bar at the



I nlU


club. This privilege should
have been grandfathered in
when.the new ordinance was
passed. More importantly
though, it is not a public bar
and no alcoholic beverages are
consumed outside the building.
It is not a threat to Steinhatchee
School.

Ironically the Auxiliary, the
women's counterpart to the Le-
gion, has been very'active at the
school both in time and money.
Many of the Auxiliary members
serve as volunteers at the school
and the Auxiliary has provided
things such as backpacks, schol-
arships, special "end of the
year" awards etc: to the school
children. To be an Auxiliary
member one must be the wife or
the daughter of a Veteran.

Additionally both the Legion
and the Auxiliary have been
very active in the Steinhatchee
community They have support-
ed the Steinhatchee Community
Projects Board and the Stein-
hatchee Chamber of Commerce
in their festivals and activities
by manning booths and serving
as volunteers. When the Stein-
hatchee Community Center was
proposed in 1988, the American
Legion was one of the first or-
ganizations to step up to the
plate and support it. Their
members manned the cold
drink booth for over
twenty years.

The Legion places
American flags on
every Veteran's grave
Si in the Steinhatchee
and Jena cemeteries
on Memorial Day

Just recently the Aux-
C iliaryraised $1,000
-C for the Special
Olympics. On Hal-
loween, the Legion
provided the candy
that was given out to
the trick or treaters.
The latest fundraiser

So she stood there, bleeding and wide open, and waited for
her shot as he charged at her. She put four bullets into his
center. He dropped. Allahu Akhbar

I watched Obama's press conference on TV afterwards, and.I
was disgusted by his "shout out" and three or four minutes
of pandering to his audience at some sort of Native Ameri-
can conference before he even mentioned the shooting. His
smiling, jovial tone was totally inappropriate for a President
standing there at a podium, announcing that American sol-
diers were dead from a terrorist attack on our own soil. His
demeanor was dismissive and disrespectful to the fallen sol-
diers, their families, and the American people. He should be
deeply ashamed.

As should almost every single media outlet, even FOX. Most
of them refused to run the shooter's name for the longest
time, even after it was out on the internet. Now why do you
think that was?. The mainstream media channels spent
more time warning against "jumping to conclusions" than
they did talking about what had happened. MSNBC, was
frantically preaching the "post-traumatic
stress disorder" and "it's all Bush's fault
ot perishing for the that this happened" gospel. Even after it
clever or talented, was revealed that the shooter had never
well-meaning men. actually been deployed, they kept on.
They claimed that maybe he had gotten
or the want of men PTSD from listening to stories of soldiers
ge and resolution." who HAD been deployed. Only Saturday
,did it come out that he went to the same
Mosque, at the SAME TIME, as some of
--Author Unknown the 9/11 hijackers and that he tried to con-
'tact Al Queda. What a crock.

FOX News finally stepped up to the plate and started inter-
viewing people who knew the shooter. How he had written
that muslims were justified in killing Americans. How he
felt like suicide bombers were doing the right thing. And
then, most tragically, how the military had known about
these writings for six months at least, had investigated him
and had done nothing. Nothing at all.

People are so afraid of being accused of being racist--
although nobody seems to realize that Islam is not a race, it's
a philosophy--that they're afraid to take action against an ob-
vious threat. The government is so afraid of being accused
of "profiling" that they are placing the American people at
risk every day The liberal, politically correct ideas of "so-
cial justice" from the 1960s that have penetrated our culture
like mold through cheese are now getting people killed.

Thank the Lord, we have people like Officer Kimberly
Munley, who are willing to stand firm with great courage
and to do the needful to protect the people under their care.
We have men and women who know that there IS evil in the
world and that you can't talk to it, negotiate with it, or bribe
it to go away..eventually, you have to look it in right the face
and blow it to Kingdom Come. It ain't pretty, it's not nice,
and it's not politically correct, but it has to be done. Sadly
our current leaders seem to have forgotten that.


is sponsoring is the Toys for
Tots campaign. A benefit din-
ner held recently has ensured
that the Steinhatchee and Jena
kids have at least one.toy under
the tree.

The Legion regularly puts on a
flag raising ceremony teaching
the children about the care of
the American flag and the
meaning of the flag.

Of course the Legion, upon re-
quest of the family, attends the
funerals of all Veterans even if
they are not a member of the
Legion. They regularly trans-
port needy Vets to the VA Hospi-
tal as volunteers.It is a commu-
nity based organization with
long standing ties.

The Post itself is a friendly
gathering place of members.
There are no fights or late night.
loud music. It is a congenial
group of friends of similar in-
terests. Most of the members
are senior citizens

The Legion has recently spent a
great deal of time and money
constructing a new larger build-
ing.

It is inconceivable to me how
the County Commission could
possibly shutter this entity
which adds so much to our com-
munity

There will be a County Commis-
sion meeting November 17th at
6:00 P.M. in the Annex to discuss
this issue. Please attend if you
can.

If you are a Veteran, or even if
you just believe in fair play,
please call your County Com-
missioner and ask them to keep
the Joe D. White American Le-
gion.Post open in Steinhatchee.
And if you are an American Le-
gion member, you are always
welcome at the Joe D. White
Post.

Susan Curtis, Steinhatchee

TICil IMers

By Bonnie Wilson

CONTINUED FROM LAST
week...............

I made it back to Sunny
without too much of a strug-
gle. He was waiting patient-
ly for my return and he
nickered at the sight of me
with my newfound friend. I
knew I had to get this new-
born fawn to a warm bed
and find some food for her
before she befell the same
fate as her mother.

As I had my hands full with
the fawn, it was a little diffi-
cult to get into the saddle. I
really needed a leg up and
no one was around. Perhaps
a stump would give me the
boost that I needed. I began
to search the area for some-
thing that I could step up on
to get back into the saddle
with my precious cargo.

Suddenly, I heard a wild
bone-chilling scream. It
pierced my ears as well as
my heart. There was no
doubt in my mind as to what
this eerie sound was. There
is no other sound like the
one I was hearing and I
knew in my terrified heart
that sound was the panther
that had killed baby Doe's
mother.,I began to tremble,
my hands became unsteady
and my mouth suddenly dry
as the panic I now felt began
to rise in my throat. The
bushes in front of me parted
in perfect line as the pan-
ther walked through and be-
gan to stalk her pray, she
screamed and hissed as we
stood facing each other.

I felt the temperature rise in
my body as a thin line of
perspiration formed across
my brow and I stood staring
at two large emerald green
eyes glared back at me. A gi-
ant black paw now raised in
the air, and her razor tip
teeth gleamed brightly,
ready to spring on me at any
moment. They say that your
life flashes before your eyes
Sat the moment of death. I
only remember thinking I
was not ready to go yet. I
stared back in the eyes of
death and I screamed right
back at her. "Go, Get away
from us! You have no right
to be here! GO!"

I turned my back to walk
away and I prayed if she at-
tacked, God would be merci-
ful and allow it to be a quick
death. I felt the hair on my
neck rise and I knew the mo-

Way to go Boys!!


ment of truth had arrived. It
seemed every little thing in
the forest went deathly still.
There were no sounds or
was it that I had suddenly
gone deaf? Do you lose your
hearing before you are
struck dead? Not that I was
at all anxious to hear the
Sounds of my flesh being
torn from my body, but still
it was an eerie silence. Then
all of a sudden I felt as
though I had gone through a
wind tunnel.

I was thrown forward, at
least a few feet in the air. I
held on tightly to my little
cargo that I was guarding
with my life. I managed to
turn my body so that I fell
on my back, and not on little
Doe. I felt a stinging pain to
my head as I landed on the
ground. I heard the panther
screaming now and I
thought she was coming at
me again. I tried hard to fo-
cus my sight and it was then
that I saw Sunny dancing in
the air on his back feet and
he was lashing out at the
panther with his front
hoofs!

He leaped forward at her
again and turned to kick at
her with his hind feet. I was
now even more terrified. My
best buddy was in trouble. I
tried to get up but I got
dizzy and fell back again.
Sunny would not give up, he
relentlessly pursued the
panther and he did not stop
until he had stomped her to
death. I managed to crawl
toward Sunny and call his
name. He came obediently to
my side, blood soaked feet
trembling as he gave a high-
pitched whinny. I pulled my-
self up by one stirrup and
hugged Sunny as tightly as I
could. "Sunny you are in-
credible, you saved my life!"

At that moment I was so
proud of him I didn't know
how to fully accept what had
just happened to us. I know
my loyal companion saw
that I was in serious trouble
and he did not hesitate to
rescue me from that danger.
He reacted with love and did
not run away.


My heart swelled with pride
as I hugged Sunny again,
and I promise him a warm
bath for both of us when we
got home and a bushel of
carrots just for him.

I gently picked up baby Doe
and Sunny and I walked to-
wards home.

Never Give Up!
Martial Arts History
Although Karate is a style
itself, it is often used as a
generic term for Martial
Arts, of which there are
hundreds of styles. Karate
comes from the Japanese
words "kara" and "te" mean-
ing "open hand." The ori-
gins of Karate.can be traced
back thousands of years to
Okinawa, an island of
Japan.

That is where I first began
my training as a child. It
was actually taught as part
of the PE. curriculum there
with strong emphasis on
discipline and respect: Be-
cause of this, there were.no
physical fights among the
students from Lower School
(K-6th grades) through Up-
per School (High School)
and teachers were given the
utmost respect from the stu-
dents, parents, and the com-
munity

Thousands of years ago, the
common person in Okinawa
was not allowed to have
weapons of any kind. This
left small villages vulnera-
ble to cruel and violent acts
from thieves, rapists, and
murderers. Okinawans de-
veloped strong hand-fight-
ing techniques as a way to
defend themselves without
using traditional weapons.
Common farming tools be-
came weapons, such as the
staff which was used as a
walking stick and to put
holes in the ground to drop
in seeds, nunchukas were
used to separate wheat from
the chaff, sickles were used
to cut hay, they even learned
to use boat paddles as
weapons. These weapons
were practiced while actual-
ly working the farms.
Karate was further devel-
oped by the influence of oth-
er forms of martial arts,
which were brought to Oki-

How to Buy a Quality Used Car or

Truck Under $200 a Month Without

a Penny Out of Your Pocket


Gainesvile, FL -
Now more than ever,
great quality and great value
are what's on everyone's
mind. How can you get the
most car for the least
money? Wade Raulerson
Honda has the answer.
"We've had car after car
and truck after truck
returned to us. People
simply can't make the
payments anymore and just
bring the vehicle back.
We've got so many of them,
our only option is to let new
customers take over loans
on the vehicles and start
making payments," said
Jason Dillon, used car sales
manager.
Wade Raulerson Honda
has row after row of quality
pre-owned vehicles avail-
able for this program. Their
service department, which is
one of the top rated service
departments in the state, has
inspected, reconditioned
and certified vehicles.
"We just need to move
these vehicles for the banks.
Right now, you can get a
used car or truck, many less
than a year or two old, for
less than two hundred
dollars a month without a
penny out of your pocket.
This is a program I haven't
seen in twenty years in the
business," added Dillon.
Late model vehicles,
which have already had
thousands of dollars in
payments made against
them are being brought
back at a staggering rate.
Neither the bank nor
dealership wants these
vehicles since they've
already been retailed. The


banks and the dealership
are looking for good
customers with good
credit or bad who are
willing to take payments on
these vehicles.
"There's not a vehicle on
our lot that can't be bought
for under two hundred
dollars per month and
these aren't clunkers. Look

"Right now, you
can get a used car
or truck, many less
than a year or two
old, for less than
two hundred dollars
a month without t a
penny out of your
pocket."
Jason Dillon,
Used Car Sales Manager
Wade Raulerson Honda


at this example a 2004
Toyota Tacoma, Stk#
FH8170A, with $0 down is
just $197 per month for 72
months at 5.9% APR with
approved credit plus tax,
tag and title. And I've got
fifty other cars and trucks
that are similar values,"
added Dillon.
Dealerships and banks
aren't in the business of
taking back vehicles when
customers can't make
payments. They'd rather
get them off their books
immediately and will do


whatever is necessary to
do so.
Wade Raulerson Honda
has taken all of the vehicles
and put them in a special
section on their lot. Any
interested consumers who'd
like to view the inventory
should call the dealership to
make an appointment.
"All we're asking is to
make an appointment.
We've got these vehicles
sectioned off and they're
ready to be driven, inspect-
ed and taken home today.
We're clearly posting prices
and payments. If you see a
vehicle you like, but aren't
happy about the take over
price simply make an
offer. I'm sure you hear
stories every day of banks
and businesses taking
pennies on the dollar for
surplus products. I don't see
why any offer will be
refused," finished Dillon.
Wade Raulerson Honda
has been Gainesville's top
dealership for many years.
Respected by Honda and
the community, the dealer-
ship has built its business on
fantastic products, great
customer service and prices
that you can feel good
about.
Interested consumers
should call the dealership at
1-877-639-8148. This event
is going on through 8:00pm
Monday;
"After that, we've got to
ship inventory off this lot.
We can't let it sit here forev-
er for the banks or lenders.
Make an offer now, or you
may miss an opportunity to
get a great car under $200
per month," added Dillon.


Interested consumers should contact the
dealer directly at 1-877-639-8148


nawa by nobles aid traders
from China and other parts
of Asia.

I teach a Korean form of
Martial Art called Tang Soo
Do (pronounced Tang Sue
Doe) which means "Way of
the China (or empty) Hand."
It is very similar to Tae
Kwon Do in that it uses
punches, kicks and deflec-
tion techniques. As Martial
Arts began to spread
throughout the lands differ-
ent groups learned from
each other and added or
changed techniques to bet-
ter help defend themselves
in their particular circum-
stances. The Koreans philos-
ophy was to learn from
many styles and use the
most practical techniques
from as many..styles as pos-
sible, particularly the tech-
niques, not the religion,
from the Shaolin Monks in
China, plus adding their
own. Thus, Tang Soo Do is
a Korean style called the
"Way of the China Hand"

I would like to know your
thoughts about this and past
articles I have written for
this column. Is the informa-
tion helpful and interesting?
Do you.have any specific
questions about Martial.
Arts, Personal Safety, or
about training classes? I
would like to know if any-
one is even reading this col-
umn and about how many

QueenMlother fetes Tamamas

Mickey Nyberg, the Stein-
hatchee Red Hat Tamama
Queen Mother, celebrated
our ninth year by hosting
an anniversary party at
Roy's Restaurant. She deco-
rated the table with baby
bears all wearing red hats,
of course!

Mickey treated the girls to
two different appetizers -
calamari and mushrooms.
Both were divine. She also


held a quiz on cooking. Pat
McShane was the big win-
ner and Susan Curtis and
Susan Jones tied for second.
Mickey had great Red Hat
prizes for the winners!

The girls enjoyed every-
thing from clam chowder to
oyster stew, from shrimp to
the famous Roy's salad bar.
Nobody left hungry and it
was all good. It was a fun
day for all down on the riv-
er. Thank you, Mickey for a
beautiful day

Crusades For Christ Tent
Revival Brings A Strong
Message To America
Mark your calendar now
for the Crusades for Christ
Tent Revival in Old Town
starting Sunday, November
15th at 7PM. The tent has
been set up and is located
approx. two miles west of
Old Town, just off Kate
Green Road at the caution
light. Special invitation to
hunters...come as you are
in your camouflage right
from the woods.
America and its people are
living in crucial times. Bill
Bozeman's message is time-
ly and direct from the Bible.
Here are some more
thoughts from Bro. Bill...
2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my
people, which are called by
my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and
seek My face, and turn
from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heav-
en, and will forgive their
sin, and will heal their
land."
We focused last week upon
the necessity of humbling
ourselves before God. I
would like to talk about the
importance of prayer in
seeking revival. There is
absolutely no substitute for
prayer. There is a host of
things to be done in prepar-
ing for revival meetings
that are very important'
but, none as important as
prayer and especially the
kindof prayer mentioned
in the preceding verse of
Scripture.
In his book, "Heart Cry for
Revival", Dr. Stephen 01-
ford says, "Of the twelve
Hebrew words employed to
express this verb "to pray,"
the one used hear means
"to judge self habitually."
Our major problem in
prayer is the selfishness of
our desires and designs.
Only the Holy Spirit can
put to death selfishness in
prayer and substitute self-
lessness in prayer... With-
out doubt, this practice of
selflessness in prayer is one


of the hardest disciplines to
achieve. Selfishness is so
much part of bur nature.
Before we know it, we may
even find ourselves praying
for revival in order to ac-
quire the fame of a
Jonathan Edwards or a
Charles Finney. Has it ever
occurred to you that sin
started in heaven? When
Lucifer, son of the morn-
ing, aspired to take the
throne of the universe he
fell like lightening from
heaven. The same sin of
self-seeking ruined the Gar-
den of Eden; and it can
ruin your life and mine.
And believe it or not, that
can even happen while we
kneel in prayer. This is why
it is so important to pray in
the Holy Spirit, because one
of the ministries of the
Spirit is to put to death the
manifestations of our self-
life. Paul says, 'If we live
according to the flesh we
will die, but if by the Spirit
we put to death the deeds of
the body we will live.' (Ro-
mans 8:13) Let us daily
learn how to accept the sen-
tence of the cross upon our
self life, through the power
of the Spirit. Only then
shall we know how to pre-
vail in prayer." (End of
quote)
The Apostle Paul said,
"Likewise the Spirit also
helpeth our infirmities: for
we know not what we
should pray for as we
ought: but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us
with groanings which can-
not be uttered. And He that
searcheth the hearts
knoweth what is the mind
of the Spirit, because He
maketh intercession for the
saints according to the will
of God." (Romans 8:26-27)
God alone knowswhat is
best for us. As we: earnestly
pray for God to move might-
ily in revival amongst us,
let's be sure to remember
the words of our Lord Je-
sus Christ just before His
crucifixion: "Nevertheless,
not My will, but thine, be
done." (Luke 22:42) What-
ever God wants is always
the best for us. Please pray
in the power of the Spirit.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

We praise God for the
gorgeous day He gave us today
to worship Him. We had a
wonderful service and if you
missed either service, you tru-
ly missed a blessing.
Wednesday night will be our
regular monthly business
meeting. As a member of
Faith, it's our duty to be there
and help take care of God's
business.
Remember the shoeboxes we
put together every year for the
children all over the world.
Most of them wouldn't have
Christmas at all if it wasn't for
the boxes they receive. If you
don't want to pack a box you
can donate $20.00 and Linda
Pettrey will do the shopping
and pack your box for you.
They all must be completed by
November 15th.
We want to let our visitors
know what a blessing they are
to us and how special they are.
If you're looking for a church
home, we invite you to share
ours and if you're just passing
through, we invite you back to
worship with us anytime.
Remember to pray for the
Sick. We had several that had
to go the the hospitals this


week and they and their fam
lies need our prayers. Also re-
member to pray for the be-
reaved who have lost loved
ones and especially pray for
the lost. We at Faith love you
and our prayers are with you.

MY HERO
Strong
Brave
Proud
The greatest qualities of a true soldier.
One that fights for his country's freedom.
He doesn't stop until his duty is fulfilled.
Still, he.will not tire after his task is completed.
Through thick and thin, he will not fail.
Even the most massive obstacles will not slow him.
His will is that of steel.
The fire of hope burns still.
He takes his task wisely.
For the sacrifices that he has made is not forgotten.
The unknown fates he will encounter.
The hardships that he will suffer.
As he plays the game of life or death.
In hopes he will succeed with life.
The optimism that aides him through each day.
Thus he is my hero.

-Written by Hannah, age 14, a DCHS student, for her 19
year old cousin, Giovanni Ortiz US Army stationed over-
