ty to coach some outstanding athletes in
baseball, football, softball, and girls bas-
ketball, including football star Isaiah Reese

system, Johnson ventured to Florida and
spent a year at Wewa. "We were 15-7 in
baseball and 7-4 in football." hle notes.

and '85, and at Dothan we were runners
up in '74 and '75."
BHS Athletic Director and Head Football
Coach Bobby Johns is excited to have
Johnson on board. "We were just real
lucky." he remarks. "We weren't sure what
was going to happen and we were fortunate
to find him right down the road. He's going

both baseball and football."

z Text: 1 Peter 4:12-19
Michael Green tells about one con-
struction wqrkWi.whaLnad a.panicjliarly.,
bad ay.'4 ,. ,' cla. -..i
There was a pile ori brick.s or i;cp ei a
building that he had ol mnoe to ire
ground. He rigged up a team wiln a rope
and pulley on the top of he building. He
filled up two barrels with bricks.
Once on the ground, he released the
line. The bricks were heavier than he
was. The barrels came down and lerked
Snim up before he could let go of the rope.
He hung onto ihe rope to the top oe
the building. He banged his head on the
beam and jammed his fingers in the pul-
S The barrels crashed to the ground,
Knocking out the bottom spilling the
bricks. He was still holding the rope and
heavier than the barrels. He plummeted
to the ground.
He hit ihe ground landing on the pile
of bricks. He let go or the rope in ihe
crash and the empty barrels came down
hitting him in the head.
Everyone has problems. Problems
do not disappear because you are a
Chrnsian We often set ourselves up for
Failure and disappointment. We believe
the only reason for problems is because
of sin or lack of faith. When a problem
S arises, we are devastated because our
expectations are not met.
"...Do noi be surprised ai the painful
trial you are suffering NIVI." While some
problems are due to sin and lack of faith.
many are not. God is not being unjust or
Unfair. Enduring trials is a pan of life. 1
Pet. 5:9 says, "...your brothers through-
out the world are undergoing Ihe same
kind of sufferings"
You are not alone in your suffering
Other Christians are suffering with you.
God will never leave or forsake you,
especially during trials.

Hayes' wife at 1:30 p.m. seeking law
enforcement assistance at her home off
Hwy. 69 South. Upon arrival, deputies
learned Hayes had threatened her with a
gun, then fled in a white Chevrolet truck.
Major Roman Wood discovered the empty
vehicle behind a nearby residence. He
then spotted a green compact vehicle dri-
ving away from the home and a traffic
stop was initiated. Hayes was found to be
the driver of the green vehicle and was
taken into custody.
While his white truck was being
processed, Hayes' son, Calvin Lester
Hayes, approached and allegedly began
acting in a belligerent and aggressive
manner, telling Inv. Michael Bryant to
"stop searching. the [expletive] truck."

David Tatum and Inv. Bryant in an aggres-
sive manner, and continued to be uncoop-
erative, he was taken into custody for

Pennywell reportedly headed for 20th
Street, failing to stop at the stop sign. He
then pulled up at a residence and Dep.
Nichols pulled his patrol car right next to
Pennywell's car to keep him from exiting.

vehicle in park and exited through the
passenger side. The car then rolled for-
:ward, striking the front of Dep. Nichol's
patrol car and coming to final rest against
a chainlink fence.

injuries in crash
A Calhoun County woman
was fortunate to sustain only
minor injuries when her SUV
crashed Sunday afternoon.
Juanita Alford. 36. was
northbound on Hwy. 69 at
Pine Island when, for an
unknown reason, her Nissan
Xterra ran off the road, struck
a culvert, went airborne, and
did a complete rollover.
Alford was treated and
released. The accident is being
investigated by Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Jason
Britt. Charges are pending.

First, let me thank all of the

to restore power f'Al.- iin h.-, rri-
Scane Dennis.. Their efforts are
much appreciated. 1 also was
pleased that my power was only
o f for a day and a half as a result
of the hurricane.
This ex'penence though has
left me scratching my head.
Experiencing 3 hurricanes in
Central Florida last year, I was
able to keep power each time
until well after the :hurricanes
made landfall and winds reached
the 50+ mph range. What I do-
not understand is how here,
when winds probably did not
exceed more than about 30 mph.
electricity would go off 8 hours
before Dennis landfall.
Ndow, I understand that a tree
can go down or a transformer
may blow here and there, but the
severity of the stormdid not jus-

I would like to take this oppor-
tunity to praise and thank the
vigilantes ,in the Live. Oak
Heights subdivision section of
Calhoun County who successful-
ly eradicated one of the killer
dogs (the boxer) who as many of
you will recall murdered my cat
Nikki and attacked my elderly
mother as she tried to stop this
attack. This same dog continued
to terrorize the neighborhood in
Live Oak Heights, even though
its owners were well aware of its
aggressive acts. The owner's
response to other complaining
residents (as with Nikki)-the sit-
uation couldn't be controlled
because the children let the dog
For those of you, such as
myself, one of our own county
commissioners, neighbors and
others whoh have experienced
first hand what these dogs are
capable of and the apathy and
indifference of their owners-we
can take a lesson from this. The
current "'justice" system does not
work: as I already knew. But. as
many of you may not know. I
sued these owners and lost. as I
Ukne~ I would, due to the good
ole' boy system. However, I made
them face me and own up to the
fact that they did not return my:
calls, answer my letters and why
they tned every way under the
sun to avoid coming to the hear-.
ing. At the hearing, I made them
listen to how Nikki could not
defend herself, fight ba&k in any
way because she was outnum-
bered and they got the jump on
her. As my elderly mother
S(riantrJiuL r of MniLicla.l
Guilford) tried to : repel this
'attack these dogs turned and
Attacked her. I came home to a
dead cat-but I could have come
home to. a dead mother lying in
the front yard with my \cat on
that hot humid 90 degree
August day. Nothing will bring
my. precious Nikki.back. For the
privilege I had of loving and being
loved by'Nikki, I will not rest
until this situation is rectified.
She was an incredible cat and I
Sowe her so much for all she gave,
to me. I shame the owners of the
dogs who perpetrated these'
vicious horrible unspeakable
acts because they are directly
responsible for it.
Did rmy quest .'for "justice"
make a dent?. No. You see igno-
Srance .stupidity, apathy 'and
indifference are a dangerous
combination. Ignorance can be
cured, but 'stupidity- is forever.
People who allow their animals to
terrorize other people and their
animals are ignorant, 'stupid,
negligent arid irresponsible
Because there is no leash law,
this problem continues. People
will put up fences as I have; keep
loaded, guns/baseball bats
handy and other self defense
items to protect themselves as
Sthey try to move about the neiLh-
borhood. The vigilantes will keep
antifreeze on hand. A leash' law
is a step in the right direction so
the vigilantes will not have to act.,
However, unfortunately at this
point there is no other alterna-
SIf a manageable leash law is
enacted with "zero" tolerance -we
can prevent the inevitable--
either the death of our loved ones
or the death of the offending ani-
mal. As it'stands now, there is
no "justice". My situation is a
case in point. All the owners had
to do was take responsibility -for.
their animals. They refused to do
this. The boxer that killed my cat
and attacked my mother was
subsequently killed by the: vigi-
lantes with antifreeze-a horrible
death, not to be.wished on any-
one. So, we can do nothing or we
can enact a law. If there is no
law, then the vigilantes must act
to maintain the harmony and
safety of our community.ll
Otherwise, if still you.want "jus-
tice" in Calhoun County I sug-
gest you get.a "dog" and name
him "Justice", because it is the
only "justice" you will get.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
1To years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct Automo-
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.
Blood shortage critical
in the panhandle rgion
*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the lot,
NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in.
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
,tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
.e appreciate you're supporting us. Come
by or call.
SWe sell all of our cars at
a discount so you don't
need a down payment!
