Teaching Victoria a secret or two


POrtrait of true sweethearts


by Esther Stoltzfus
in' honor of Valentine's Day,
Esther Stoltzfus of .Blountstown
shares this story about her par-
eents, Monroe and Naomi Yoder,
who have been sweethearts for
over 62 years. Enjoy!
Miz Naomi is a lady through
and tlhrou:uh. Her beauty lies in
the warmth of her spirit and the.
unselfish acts of kindness that fill
her da's The wrinkles around
her eyes add character to the
sparkling smile that fills her face.
Her worn calloused hands have
lovingly washed thousands of
dishes, sheets, and towels used
by .family and friends who have
been blessed by the work of her
hands.
.Yes, her beauty is rare and
priceless.
Miz Naomi was raised poor
during the depression, and she
learned to make frugality an art.
In our house we recycled things
before it was politically correct.
"We ie-used bread bags, ziplock


Monroe :and Naomi Yoder of
Blountstown have been sweethearts
for over 62 years:

bags, and aluminum foil. We even
recycled plastic picnic cups and
Christmas bows until they got too
crumpled to be presentable.
Miz Naomi was also raised in a
strict home that taught against
almost any outward adornment.
So; she had no reason to know
anything about make-up, jewelry,
or expensive clothes. Names like


Estee Lauder, .Ralph Lauren, and
Merle Norman meant nothing-to
her. A visit from the Avon lad\
just meant we had afresh supply
of Skin-Sd-Soft for m-osquitd
repellent.
Victoria's Secret would havq
never been on m m nama's list of
stores to visit. Miz Naomi would
be distressed to see the Victoria's
Secret TV models who parade
around, looking like tramps,
vamps, and hoochy mamas.
Miz Naomi models another
kind of love altogether; a love that
is pure and inwardly beautiful; a
love that is is based on commit-
ment and responsibility instead
of instant eye candy As her child,
I have watched her and my papa
go through the seasons of life
gracefully and withoutt complain:
ing. They have shared joy, hard
work, heartbreak, and loss,
Together they survived the death
of a son.:...and later the death of
a granddaughter Through the
years, their love has been as con-
sistent as the morning sun. and
iust as- l\'ely to wYatch
Well, we get back to Miz Naomi
and her story;

go see their doctor. This doctor

Cats chalk up homecoming win over Wewa


District Tournament Feb. 15


'by Kelli Peacock
It was Friday night fever in
Altha as the Cats cruised to a 57-
48 homecoming victory over the
Wewa Gators.
"'It was a big win for us
because it was homecoming, not
to mention the fact that Wewa is
a bigger school than us," says
Coach Jason Keene. "We had
played them earlier in the year at


their place and they had beat us
by 15."
Jason Holland led Altha with
13 points. Tyler Luke followed
with 12. John Mark Peacock and
T.J. Lewis added eight points a
piece. Brad Neel had six fields.
Holland and Peacock pulled down
six rebounds each.
"It really was a good game all
the way through," says Coach


Keene. "It was pretty intense and
heated. Both teams played hard.
It's nice to beat somebody that
beat you earlier in the year. You
like to think that shows improve-
ment."
Saturday night had the 'Cats
on a road trip to Carrabelle where
they claimed a 47-16 victory.
"It was a long way down there
and it was good that was our sec-
ond win in a row," says Coach
Keene. 'That's an accomplish-
ment for us this year to win two
in a row."
Leading scorers were Trey
Gowan, Luke, and Peacock who
all brought in eight points.
Altha faced Covenant
Christian Tuesday (details
unavailable at press time). They'll
host Liberty County Thursday
with game time at 6 p.m. for J.V.,
followed by varsity at 7:30 p.m.
The district tournament gets
underway on Tuesday in Grand
Ridge. The Cats will go up against
Poplar Springs in the first round
(time TBA).

J.V. Wildcats defeat


Poplar Springs, 52-34


bu Jim McIntosh


SIt used to be the neighborly
thing to do-give the owner who
had just moved into a new house
a housewarming gift.
With the smell of newness per-
meating the air and a gleaming
maple-wood court, Altha wasn't
in a giving mood last Tuesday
night when they went to Poplar
Springs and gave themselves a
52-34 win.
From the opening tip, Altha
started gift-wrapping their pre-
sent. On the 'Cats first offensive
series, Josh McIntosh drained a
three-pointer. As a sign of things
to come. Altha's Noah Byler
jumped into the passing lane and
stole the Atomics' first posses-
sion. On the night the Wildcats
had 10 steals and forced Poplar
Springs to turn the ball over 20
times. With those and other con-
tributions. Altha jumped out to


an 11-5 first quarter lead.
They stretched it to 24-10 at
halftime, highlighted by Kevin
Saldana swishing one from
beyond the arc. With the help of
Cale Chafin's three treys the
Wildcats scored a. season high 20
third-quarter points and led 44-
21. Even though Poplar Springs
made a 13-8 run in the final peri-
od, it was too little, too late and
Altha had extended their current
winning streak to three.
Cale Chafin led all scorers with
13 points, including three of five
three-pointers. Also Chafin had
two steals, an offensive rebound
and he blocked a shot. Josh
McIntosh knocked down 11
points, making three of four from
beyond the arc. Matt Baggett and
Kevin Saldana both tallied nine
points. Both of them cleared two
defensive rebounds while Baggett

The Altha Varsity Cheerleaders are in
charge of the spirit games during
Homecoming week. This year they decid-
ed to take a twist with things and do
something a little different. They held their
own Cat Factor Games, inspired by the
popular TV show Fear Factor.
'" The Wildcats took on the Wewa
S.'Gators in their Homecoming Game Friday
Sight. To go along with that, in the Cat
F Factor game they had gator eggs and
swamp water. Fortunately, no one got sick
. and the students and staff had a blast.
Everyone agreed that "Cat Factor" is a

Rare Beauty
Last week, as many people know, was
a huge week for Altha School. The whole
homecoming week at Altha was a big suc-.
cess because of many activities the stu-
dents participated in.
One of the highlights of the week was
the woman-less beauty pageant. Eight of
the senior boys took part, showing off
their beauty in various ways. Eight of the
senior girls dressed up as boys to escort
the "girls" on the stage. Some of the girls
had way too much fun, dancing and shak-
ing in their hilarious costumes.
Among these women were Lloyd
Williams, AKA Lucy Merle, Homecoming
King Brad Neel, AKA Lafonda
Ridinghood, Rex Hansford, AKA
Roxanne, and T.J. Lewis, AKA T-Lo. All of
these ladies did a great job in represent-
ing Altha School. However, when every-
one thought all.the contestants were fin-
ished, a huge surprise broke out, and all
the students in the stands gasped.
The last contestant of the pageant was
the magnificent and beautiful Coach
Keene, AKA Private First Class
Gemstone, who was absolutely breathtak-
ing.
Then, the crowd decided who the most
beautiful woman-less woman was. The
lucky winner, and Miss AHS 2005, just
happened to be the gorgeous Lafonda
Ridinghood, also known to the rest of the
world as Brad Neel. He did a great job
portraying Little Red Riding Hood with his
escort, the Big Bad Wolf. He really
enjoyed sharing his picnic "goodies" with
everyone.
Still, some people would say Private
Gemsione I: jealous ol noi gelling ire
nle Who knows? Coach, there i-.alrwey.

Waters. At left, Ginny Baker and Eric Alford play relaxing music,for the crowd.
At right,Anna Layton and other volunteers serve punch and dessert from the
beautiful banquet table. All proceeds from the event go to the Pioneer
Settlement to help fund more historic preservation and education projects.

them f6r about fifteen years. He
has been extraordinarily good to
them, and he is an excellent doc-
tor, as well. So, Miz Naomi decid-
ed to take him a loaf of home-
made bread; this is just one of
her classic trademarks of gen-
erosity. She rummaged through
her bin of recycled bags and saw
one that caught her eye; it was a
pretty pink bag with a pretty
name, and she was glad she had


saved it.
I saw the doctor a bit later in
the ER and when he saw me he
told me how much he enjoyed the
homemade bread; and then he
quietly laughed and asked if I
knew how the bread arrived at
his office.
This doctor is elegant and dig-
nified, and he turned a bit red
when he explained that he wasn't
sure what to think when Miz

Naomi handed him a Victoria's
Secret gift bag. He was mightily
confused because, try as he
might, he just couldn't imagine
Miz Naomi shopping for some-
thing for Mr. Monroe at Victoria's
Secret. The thought of her buying
something red and silky made
him want to smile.
The doctor didn't figure that
Miz Naomi was acquainted with
the hoopla that surrounded
Victoria's Secret. But he held his
composure well, and was glad he
did, because the sight of that
homemade bread almost,--- but
not quite---!, made him forget
,about the origin of that, bag.. He
told me it wa' the best bread he
had ever eaten.
Miz Naomi had told me she
was puzzled that the doctor didn't
pick the bag up and take it with
him when he left the exam room;
she wasn't sure if he was really
glad for the bread. He just told
her to leave it on the counter and
they would come back and get it.
She had no way of knowing that

he couldn't wait to eat the bread
once he could separate it from
that pretty pink bag.
The sight of an elderly
Mennonite lady and her elderly
husband carrying around a
Victoria's Secret bag probably
made more than a few people
smile. Curious observers proba-
bly wondered what sort of myste-
rious event was taking place that
required this couple to go to the
doctor with such obvious evi-
dence of high-class sensuality.
But you know, when I think of
the bond of love Miz Naomi and
my papa have shared for more
than 62 years, I believe they
could probably teach Victoria a
secret or two.

The Counselor Convicts of Sin
Text: John 16:8-9
In London, it is told that a man named
Noel Coward once sent letters to twenty
of the most prominent men in the city. All
twenty letters read the same, "All is dis-
covered. Escape while you can." All twen-
ty men suddenly left town.
Have you ever felt guilty? What was it
that made .you feel Uncomfortable? God
has written His laws upon our conscience.
He convicts us of our sin through the
Counselor, the Holy Spirit.
No man comes to the Father. except
the Spirit draws Him. The first step to sal-
vation is to realize that you are lost. One
has to know what he or she is being
saved from. The Spirit initially convicts of
sin. To be convicted of sin and experience
the pangs of guilt is a good thing in that it
brings us to repentance.
" Repentance is feeling so sorry for our
sin that we do not want to do it anymore.
It-is turning from sin and turning toward
righteousness. If we sin, the Holy Spirit
convicts, .we feel guilty, and, inerelore
repent.
Once we repent; we can confess sin
and trust Christ to'forgive us our sins and'
remove our guilt. Christ paid the penalty
for our sins by offering Himself as a sacri-
fice for our sins. He became our substi-
tute. Therefore Christ is able to free us
from sin and guilt.
Scripture says, "There is now no con-
demnation for those who are in Christ
Jesus." When you feel guilty for specific
sins, rememol that .at nr, ..,rs -
Gods Spirit spea.,ing draecil Ito you
Don I ignore it Lsien 10 it Become lamii-
.iar wri it. Conles; and repent Trust and.

Trie Spiri's v,:,ice wii lead you to a life
of lo.,e and forgi,.eress You will be freed
from .ri anj guiii Trai is -freedom indeed.

Pride WIIl A'ways Fall Flat
Daniel 5:5 & 6
The words, "He saw the handwriting
on the wall" is a _-hrase 5-. common
even o0 Bellteshazzar's pride and
arrogance brought both the warning and
judgment of G'-.. j m.' Arii. This was
emphasized by th6e r;.,'-c, ..a.n which"
he and h's gu. rank wine from the sil-
ver and gold vessels taken by
Nebuchadnezzar from the Jerusalem.
Temple.
But ,.e ~ u 3t remember, r r, 3 i prde is
-..juniid in kirij palaces or in high society.
Plato once entertained some friends in a
.room where there was a beautiful orna-
mental couch. 'ri.f : r; i:erj cr ame in,
dirty and scuffy as usual, and trampled all
over thar n',:e n;ce couch. While doing so
he said, "I ira--. cr:e i.p'n Ihe pride of
Plato." Plato answered quietly, "But with
greater pride, my friend."
The fact is, pride in all forms will bring
the handwriting on the wall and the natur-
al outcome, the judgment of God. Let us
all take to our hearts the warning and by
the power of the Holy Spirit begin to serve
God. "without fear, in holiness and right-
eousness before Him all the days of our
life." Luke 1: 74-75.
We. all must realize, pride is the only
disease -r..:.,.n it ria.n that makes every-
one sick except the one who has it.
