has yet to be determined.
"Getting vaccinated is the sin-
gle best way for people to protect
not only themselves against flu,
but their loved ones as well," said
Dr. Julie Gerberding, CDC direc-:
tor. "National interest in getting a
flu vaccination has traditionally
tapered off after Thanksgiving.


Since flu activity typically does not
peak until February or later,
November and December are
also good tires to be vaccinated.
National Influenza Vaccination
Week is an excellent opportunity
for providers to utilize their
resources to help fully realize the
potential of influenza vaccina-
tion."

time was the principal at Okeel

Ms..Raulerson, now a member
of the Florida State Board of Edu-
cation, watched as this class
accomplished the goal, and she
smiled.

The story is told of the great
Dutch artist who was. commis-
sioned to paint the portrait of a
famous man of his country.
After weeks of work the artist
completed the painting. It was
beautifully executed. 'Wonderful
in detail vibrant in color.
In the foreground of the picture
the artist had painted some tulips.
The flowers were so beautiful and
colorful that those who viewed
the painting never saw the por-
trait of the subject they could not
take their eyes beyond the tulips.
Sometime we all tend to major in
minors. In doing so we place
importance on trivial matters and
fail to see the entire picture. It is
difficult in many instances to see
beyond the "tulips."
Thought To Remember: Those
who look beyond small things -
see more of the world.

HAPPY: I would like to say that I think it is just wonderful that we're
having a Gay/Straight Alliance at Okeechobee,High School, and I just
think it's horrible that all you cowboys and rednecks don't like gay
people. I think it is wonderful that the American Civil Liberties Union is
going after all you people for not wanting gay people to express their
gayness in Okeechobee. I'm so happy and gay.

JEALOUSY: This call is for the person who wrote about ongoing sit-
uations. A few people in the neighborhood don't have anything better
to do than complain about something. So if it wasn't about that they
would find something else to complain about. In the long run, most
everybody needs to stop and think that people who live in glass houses
shouldn't throw stones. And another thing, jealousy will get you
nowhere.

CRUEL: This is in reference to the "knock it off" article. If you are
getting tired of reading about the gay people in the high school, how,
about if you just don't read it? Some people are gay and some people
are not. I think it is a really sad story when you have grown people
defending teenagers who are mean and cruel to individuals who hap-
pen to be gay. Gay is not really a choice. Some people are gay. That is
their right. I don't think it is right to speak down to them and not allow
them to have their meetings. If they are gay, leave them alone. You
don't have to deal with it.

HYPOCRITICAL: In reference to "knock it off", if you are getting
tired of reading in the paper about the gay community then just do
everyone a favor and don't read it. To genuinely be gay is not an
option. It is a lifetime of challenge because of people like you in this
world. I'm not gay but I have family members and friends that are and I
would never in my life think about taking my love away from them.
God will punish those who harm and beat up other human beings for
having different opinions regarding sexuality and rape. So how about
you lighten up a little bit. It's a little hypocritical to talk about God and
the Bible then have so much hatred toward people you don't even
know.

WHAT DO I NEED
TO DO BEFORE MAKING A
PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:


1 *.yo r ico -e
3.yorousanin ebs
4.yor reiths tory: -


Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
0 Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
0 The sum of these costs is referred to as OPITI. 0 Monthly homeowners association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and,private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
0 Your housing expense-to-inpome ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances?


Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

ment of facilities. Licensed social
workers, pharmacists, elder law
attorneys, physicians, nurses and
others with a sincere interest in the
elderly are urged to apply. For infor-
mation call (772) 595-1385.

dogs, cats and ferrets. Okeechobee
County Ordinance Sec. 10-1 11,
Vaccination against rabies required
and Okeechobee City Ordinance 4-

Ad Litem program
needs volunteers
This year, hundreds of kids on
the Treasure Coast will be abused,
neglected or abandoned. If you
have as little as two hours per
week, then you can help. Guardian

speakup for these children. Train-
ing for new volunteers will be held

needed in St. Lucie, Indian River,
Martin and Okeechobee counties.
Call the Guardian Ad Litem pro-
gram at (772) 785-5804 for infor-
mation and an application. Just
two hours of your time each week

desperately needed
Okeechobee is in desperate
need of people willing to provide
foster children a normal family life
with nutritious meals, good daily
care and a stimulating environ-
ment. Foster parents may be mar-
ried, divorced or single. Their most
important characteristic is that they
are caring individuals who under-
stand the problems and needs of
foster children. For information call
(800) 403-9311.

EYDC needs

ence. This statement is proven

special talents in making a differ-
ence in the lives of troubled youth.

and assistance in developing a
youth choir. Wouldn't you like to
make a difference? If so, please
contact EYDC, 7200 U.S. Hwy. 441

Reflections from the Pulnit


Eyes that are blind; or eyes that see? NewszaI.COm


By Reverend Jim Hudson
His House Fellowship
Church of the Nazarene
Stan Toler has said, "God has
never failed me, but He's sure
scared me to death a few times."
I believe that there is not a reader
who would not be able to agree
with Mr. Toler. You and I use the
clock for everything. We use it to
get out of bed, we use it to know
when we are to be at work, we
use the clock to know when our
favorite television program
comes on, and we also use the
clock to tell God how to work in
our lives. When it comes to the
real matters of our lives, we
want God to answer prayers on
our schedule and the way we
believe it should happen. Of
course, down deep in our hearts
we know that God does not
work according to our desires
and wishes. He works in accor-
dance to His knowledge and His
will. The real problem is that our
eyes are blinded by the world
and also by the enemy. You and I
need to take off our worldly
glasses and put on our Godly.
glasses.
In II Chronicles 20: 1-24, we
are told a story, of a mighty war-.
rior by the name of King,
Jehoshaphat. He was told that
three great multitudes were
coming against him. The first
thing the king did was to turn his
attention and his nation to seek
God. Jehoshaphat stood in the
assembly of people and remind-,
ed them of God's great power
and might. He stated that they

you do not have to lit a L iner,
nor roll up your sleeves. All you
must do is stand. Do not move,
only hold your ground. Focus on
the solution Not the problem.,
Put on your Godly glasses and-


help you. in so oining, you are
allowing God to work for you in
His own time. He knows what is -
best for you and I, but we must 3
give Him room to work on our ..
behalf. .


would stand before God and cry
out to God in their, distress and
that God would hear and deliver
them. This was his statement of
faith. He further prayed, "For we
are powerless before this great
multitude who are coming
against us; nor do we know
what to do, but our eyes are on
Thee." (verse 12) At this point
King Jehoshaphat put on his
Godly glasses and focused on
God and not on his problem. He
was not relying on his own
power or ability but he was
focused on the One-who is able
to bring about a solution.
At the close of 'this time'
together, just as they were leav-
ing, Jahaziel, the son of Zechari-
ah spoke to the assembly. "Lis-
ten, all Judah and the
inhabitants of Jerusalem and
King Jehoshaphat;. thus says the
Lord to you, do fear or be dis-
mayed because of this great mul-
titude, for the battle is not yours
but God's" .(verse 15). He further
stated "You need not fight in this
battle; station yourselves, stand
and see the salvation of the Lord
on your behalf, 0 Judah and
Jerusalem, do not fear or be dis-
mayed; tomorrow go out to face
them, for the Lord is with you."
(verse 17)
The same message is for us
today, just as it was for the peo-
ple of Judah and Jerusalem. God
told King Jehoshaphat that the
battle was not his but it was the
Lord's. That means, if your know
Jesus Christ as your personal
Savior, when facing a problem
or a difficult situation, you are
