Mrs. Williams: married life


Account edited by
MaryAnn Morris
This account continues the
Williams family history which
Mrs. Eva Mae Williams has gen-
erously offered to share with our
readers. We appreciate being
allowed to be included and
value the confidence. There are
many small details of everyday
life in these stories.
We were still living in Spring
Valley when I met Zibe Williams.
Spring Valley was on Highway 66
between Zolfo and Highway 27.
We had gone to a revival in
Crewsville, Old Uncle Sam Dur-
rance was preachin' and Zibe

America. He was taking a vaca-
tion from his job down there
with the American Fruit Compa-
ny in Honduras. He had grown
up in Crewsville. I remember he
had a goatee. He came over to


me after the service was out and
asked if he could walk me to the
car. When we got there Mom
was already there in the front
seat. Mama laughed that night
after we left the church about
Zibe's goatee; teasing me. She
said it looked like he had swal-
lowed a mule, all but the tail!
After that we just started going
together. He would come to the
house and Mama would let me
go out if Emory and his girlfriend
went too.
After we got married we went
to Lakeland and spent the night
at that hotel that's right on the

unemployed as a direct result of a
declared disaster. The program
also covers self-employed individ-
uals, owners of farms and ranch-
es, farm and ranch workers, as
well as fishers and others who are
not normally covered by state
unemployment compensation.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation administers the DUA
program in Florida in partnership
with the U.S. Department of
Labor and state and regional
workforce boards. Funding for
the program is provided by the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency.
To be eligible for either the reg-
ular state unemployment com-
pensation program or DUA, the
applicant must be a legal
resident. To be eligible for DUA
benefits, an individual must have


exhausted all entitlement to any
regular state unemployment ben-
efits and must have been working
in or residing in a county for
which the disaster has been offi-
cially declared. DUA benefits are
available to unemployed individu-
als for up to 26 weeks from the
date of the disaster declaration.
Federal regulations provide
that the unemployment of an indi-
vidual is caused by a disaster if the
individual: (1) becomes unem-
ployed as a direct result of the dis-
aster; or (2) is unable to reach the
place of employment as a direct
result of the disaster; or (3) was
scheduled to begin work and
does not have a job or is unable to
reach the job as a direct result of
the disaster; or (4) has become

"- lake, then we stopped by Uncle
John and Aunt Willie's. After that
we went on down to Miami, came
back up the coast and then to
Mama's.
We had a house built in
Crewsville. It was a four room
house. We got an old bathtub and
ran a pipe from the pump in the
front yard through a hole in the
wall so we could go outside and
pump water into that bathtub then
-- we'd heat more water on the stove
* and add it in. We didn't have elec-
tricity then. We used kerosene
lamps to see at night. We had
S chickens and a garden, but no milk
cow. We got a car later. Someone
had a wreck and Zibe went and
bought that old car for about $25 or
$30.


Then we moved on t6 Brighton.
The house in Brighton was on the
* edge of a hammock and it had two
bedrooms. There weren't any
neighbors, hardly; Jackie Daughtry
was running the post office and
Roy was working for the railroad
and there was Joan, their daughter.
Roy's parents lived right down the
road close to us. There was Ray
Raulerson and Pearl; Flaudy and
.. Troglin (Troglin was his last name
and they called him that).
One time it was Zibe's birthday
-, and he was braggin' that nobody
could pull anything over on him
like a party. So we got it all fixed up
and we were sitting' there and these
cars started coming' up the road. He
jumped up; it scared him 'cause he
thought something' had happened.
We were laughing and then it
dawned on him that it was a sur-
prise party,!
There were only about half a
dozen or so families and the only
recreation was getting' together
like that. There was that old swim-
ming pool. The Sharps were run-
ning the old store and the old hotel
was there.

NO HELP: The principals at the schools are different than when
they are in the paper. When you are dealing with them one-on-one
with a child who has a problem, their attitude is kick them out of
school instead of offering some of the programs available for problem
children. I have dealt with several of the principals and their attitude is
discipline before education. They need to get more help with kids who
don't have felony or misdemeanor problems. Maybe emotional prob-
lems should rate more in the realm of their judicial system at the
schools. Their attitude is to just throw the children away. And if you
can't get help at the schools when you are trying to give it at home,
there is no help from them.

GAS PRICES: I guess the gas stations are putting it to us again. The
price gouging never seems to stop. The price of gas in Alabama is
$1.89 a gallon right now. You read in the papers that the price per bar-
rel of oil is down, and it keeps going down. Why doesn't someone
check into that?

PGA of America Grand Slam talk


By Daniel Shube
Special to the Okeechobee News
The PGA of America invited
the winners of the four Majors to
play this past week at the Poipu
Bay Golf Club in Kauai, Hawaii.
The foursome was comprised of
Tiger Woods (Masters and
British Open), Phil Mickelson
(PGA Championship), Michael
Campbell (U.S. Open) and Vijay
Singh. Since Woods won two
Majors, the final spot goes to the
player who earned the most
points based upon Majors finish-
es. That distinction went to
Retief Goosen. However, due to
a schedule conflict,-Retief could
not make it. That opened the
door to Singh who earned the
next highest point total.
So here is some of the gossip
from Kauai. No, I couldn't make
it out to Hawaii, so I had to
depend upon my friends at TNT.
Ernie Johnson, Bobby Clampett,
course reporter Billy Kratzert and
essayist Jim Huber covered the
event.
Tiger Woods comparing this
year to his run in the 2000 sea-
son in which he won all four
majors: "It was close. I didn't
win as many majors, but I was
right there for each one and that
was pretty sweet. I won two, but
to be there on the back nine in
contention for all four of them is
a pretty sweet feeling."
Clampett on Tiger Woods
who fell ill during Round 1 on
Tuesday: "He got about 12
hours of sleep last night. He did-
n't make the dinner and wasn't
feeling very good. Then he woke
up this morning feeling
himself. That's bad news for the
rest of the guys."

Tiger Woods' on his response
to Vijay Singh's offer of a boxed
lunch, after Woods was nau-
seous on the first nine holes of
the round: "I said 'that's cold,
man, that's cold.'"
Michael Campbell's Dream
Foursome: Michael Campbell,
Michael Jordan, Nicole Kidman
and Gene Simmons.
Phil Mickelson's Dream Four-
some (his children): Phil Mickel-
son, Sophia Mickelson, Amanda
Mickelson, Evan Mickelson

laus, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones
Vijay Singh's Dream Four-
some: Vijay Singh, Qass Singh
(son), Walter Hagen, Bobby
Jones
Tiger after his second shot on
the par-five 14th hole for which
he hit the ball 244-yards uphill
and into the wind to set up an
eagle putt: "Oh baby...look at
that shot I just hit! That was pret-
ty cool."
Clampett on the lengthy dis-
tance of Campbell's tee shot on
the 18th hole: "Oh my good-
ness...I need to refuel when I go
that far."
Michael Campbell on finish-
ing one under par: "It was nice
to finish under par. I think Vijay
(Singh) and I were playing for
the wooden spoon."
Tiger Woods on his goals for
2006: "I'll probably play 25 or 26
events around the world. If I can
win 25 or 26, it will be a good
year."
If you missed the event, Tiger,
despite barfing in the bushes
after his first hole in round one,


ran away with the event. He shot
13-under to win for the sixth
time. Not bad since he has
played in the PGA Grand Slam
six times!

Thank God for his mercy. That
same mercy spared the life of a
small 3 year old child after being
involved in a life threatening acci-
dent. As a direct result of that acci-
dent, Garry Jones' parents
became Christians and it changed
the course of his life. Because of
that significant 'Mark' in Garry's
life, he is able to celebrate 25 years
in the Gospel Music Industry.
Garry's love of music and his
desire to use his talents for Christ
began to shine early on. He began
playing the piano at the tender
age of seven and playing profes-
sionally at the age of 17. Since
then, Garry has toured with
Grammy Award winning Ricky
Skaggs and worked with various
artists in the Christian Music
Industry. He is most recognized as
the pianist, arranger, co-owner
and producer for the talented
gospel groups Gold City and Sig-
nature Sound Quartet. Garry was
honored to be the featured pianist
for the "Old Friends Quartet"
which included Gospel Legends,
Jake Hess and George Younce
and was featured on the "Home-
coming Friends Tour" with Bill
Gaither.

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Rev. James Dawson,
assistant pastor, First
United Methodist Church
Thanksgiving is one holiday
that I look forward to with great
anticipation. Think about it; the
wonderful smell of a turkey bak-
ing, freshly baked pumpkin pies
cooling on the table, and family
coming together for the first
time in a long while. As every-
one is seated around the table
thinking about how great this
meal is going to taste, a pause is
given for everyone to reflect on
what they are thankful for this
year.
But wait a minute, what if
this year, wasn't a great year?
What if some people have
blown it over and pver again
with dumb decisions that
seemed to get the better of
them? How can anyone be
thankful for messed-up life?
Maybe some of us don't want to
be around family on Thanksgiv-
ing. Maybe some of us think that
on Thanksgiving, they would be
better off to just stay away and
not be around for their criticism.
Every one of us at one time or
another has made a wrong turn
in life, meaning every saint of
God has a past. Jesus once told
a story about a young man who
made a series of frightfully bad
decisions. We know this story
as, "The Prodigal Son" .(Luke
15:11-32). We all wish at some
point in our life that we could go
back in time and right a wrong
or two. Even though our past
can be brutal and our choices
can sometimes return to haunt
us, we do hae a loving Heaven-
ly Father who is waiting for our
return to Him. We all can be
thankful on Thanksgiving that
we know a God whose love for
us knows no end.
In the story,. "The Prodigal
Son" the son commits two sins
against his father. The first sin is
selfishness. The son can't wait
for the father to die, so he
demands his inheritance right
now. He believes that the good,
life, once begun, will last forev-
er. A demanding spirit, which is
what the son has, is a sin from
the heart. This is normally the "I
want. or... I must have mental-
ity." The "self' satisfaction is
highly important to the individ-
ual.
The second sin comes from
the heart of that selfishness, and
it is the act of rebellion. Here the
son believes that a life of inde-
pendence without restraints is
the only way to happiness. In liv-
ing this life, his values begin to
change, his integrity and charac-
ter is compromised, and lastly
he abandons his religion. He
accepts a vocation condemned
by his religion in feeding and
caring for pigs.
We have all been there, dis-
appointed by the bad decisions
that we have made, never
dreaming that life would ever
turn out this way, and wonder-
ing if there was ever a way to
change the mess that we have
created. At some point God
brings us, like he did the "Prodi-
. gal Son," to a place in our lives
where we have to make a seri-
ous decision about our future. I
call this place, "the crossroads."
Do we harden our hearts and
keep going down the same
destructive path? Or, Do we turn
back to the ways of God?
No doubt in the "Prodigal
Son's" case, this was a tough
decision. He had to be thinking
about, "I know there are neigh-
bors talking about how I took
dad's money and ran. Do I really
want to work on the farm for the
rest of my life? Will dad take me
as one of his slaves?" Live or die,
there are compelling reasons for
him to not return to his father's
house. Sometimes as Christians,
we make it difficult for family
members to return. Sometimes,
wi get all caught up in correct-
ing the sins of a wounded family
member that we don't take the
time to rejoice in their return.
Guilt and shame are power-
ful allies which can help in
pointing a wounded person to
healing. Conviction, which leads
to repentance, can not take
place without guilt or shame
showing us what we did was.
wrong. As the Bible says in verse
17, the "Prodigal Son" came to
his senses. We would wish that



it had said that he came to his
senses because he missed and
loved his mom and dad, but that
isn't so, He came to his senses
for a less noble reason. He was
hungry. His stomach, not his
heart,, told him that going home
was a good idea. This brings
him to a new life understanding
that contradicts what he once
thought was true; he now
believes that slavery in his
father's house is better than


"At some point God brings us, like he did the
'Prodigal Son,' to a place in our lives where we
have to make a serious decision about our
future. I call this place, "the crossroads." Do we
harden our hearts and keep going down the
same destructive path? Or, Do we turn back to
the ways of God?"


Heavenly Father is waiting. Our
mess is often His message to us
to come home.
Each and every one of us can
be thankful for God's uncondi-
tional love. Let's celebrate and
enjoy this wonderful feast from
the Lord's bounty. Let us be
thankful to the God who made
each and every one of us for a
purpose and seek out what that


- Rev. James Dawson purpose is no matter how old


complete freedom without
restraints elsewhere. He came
to understand that, even though
in his father's house there were
rules that he may not like, he
would be safe, he would be
taken care of, and he wouldn't
be treated harshly as a slave.
The son was not afraid to return
home because he knew his
father to be an honest and fair
man.
At home the father keeps
watch for his son. The father
who loves deeply is hurting
deeply because his son has left
him. I would imagine the father
lost all interest in 'the farm. He
probably would put down his
tools and catch himself staring
down the empty road hoping
one day to see his son returning.
Although the boy left the farm
the truth is he never left his
father's heart. The father
remains searching the horizon,
longing-for a sign of his son's
return.
Then one day...
The father sees his son from
afar coming down that long
empty road from which he left
some time ago. In the story it
says that the father, not the son,
runs to do the greeting. The son,
who was probably practicing


what to say to his father, was
greeted by a loving embrace
which had to be the very last
thing he ever expected to hap-
pen. The father, in his embrace
with his son, is not nearly as
interested in the confession of
his wayward son as he is in hav-
ing his son back in his life. The
father shouts, "Quick! Bring the
best robe in the house and put it
on him. Put a ring on his finger
and sandals on his feet..Bring
the fattened calf and kill it. Let's
have a feast and celebrate, for
this son of mine was dead and is
alive again; he was lost and is
found." Can yoiu imagine? All
the father wanted to do was to
celebrate and rejoice with his
son. Tomorrow the two will talk
about tomorrow but for that day
when his son came home they
feasted.
To the person whose clothes
bear the stench of sin, the Heav-
enly Father declares, "I have a
clean robe waiting for you." For
the disgruntled person who
doesn't understand God's
unconditional love through
Jesus Christ his only begotten
Son, He says, "Come and join
the party." To all of us He says,
"My arms are open." No matter
how bad you have blown it, the


we are or what we have done.
God's love can be seen all
around with family and friends
and that, within itself, is plenty
reason enough to be thankful.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their
publishers or corporate owners.


But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think,
or to try to control public opinion. Our editors insist on pur-
poseful neutrality. We try to report the news fairly and facili-
tate a fair but vigorous discussion of public issues.


We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're
proud to understand the difference.


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling
your editor.
