Guilford

drops out

of race,

Hill gns
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
There were a couple of
changes on the local politi-
,cal scene over the past
week.
Jerry Guilford, who had
qualified to run for the
Ward 4 seat on the
Blountstown City Council
has dropped out of that
race. Guilford tells The
County Record he has
accepted a position with
Gulf Asphalt and will be
working long hours for an
underdetermined amount
of time on the BP
Deepwater Horizon oil spill
in the Gulf. With Guilford
dropping out of the race,
incumbent Tony Shoemake
will automatically regain
his seat for another term.
In other political news,
Phillip Hill, who also serves
on the City Council, is
resigning from his post
after moving outside the
city limits. An appointment
is expected to be made to
fill the vacancy on the
Council for the remaining
year of his term in office.
Remember, the deadline
to register to vote in the
next election is July 26.

CRIME

Man arrested for

stealing trailer
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A Blountstown man has been
charged with grand theft after
allegedly stealing a trailer.
John M. West, 34, was booked
into the Calhoun County Jail last
Wednesday..
. According to the Blountstown
Police Department, the investiga- JOHN WEST
tion began in February 2009
when a Marie Avenue resident reported his red
utility trailer valued at $1000 had been removed
from his fenced in backyard. Last Tuesday, the
man called Inv. Timothy Partridge and said he
spotted his missing trailer. He said West, who had
previously worked for him, was pulling his trailer,
then observed him take it to his residence.
Ofc. Partridge, Major Rodney Smith, and
Captain Michael Bryant of the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office responded to the residence and
spoke with West's mother-in-law who advised
West had a red trailer he kept behind her home
and they were welcome to look. The trailer was
found out of plain view behind the mobile home
with the owner's original tag still on it. West was
taken in for questioning and initially said he bor-
rowed it. Authorities told him they knew that was-
n't true and that the owner had even asked him
about it when it went missing. He was also ques-
tioned about a tractor he was seen hauling on the
trailer. West said a man named Joe asked him to
get the tractor, but he couldn't provide a phone
number, last name or address for the man.

Man


busts a


burglar


in home
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A Blountstown man
used his own investigative
skills to catch a neighbor
allegedly burglarizing his
home over the weekend.
Cameo Fortner, 21, has
been charged with burglary
of an occupied structure.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, a homeowner on
South Street had cash go
missing from his home on
three occa-
s i o n s
between
March 29
and June
13. He
realized
the thefts
occurred
on days his
familI y CAMEO FORINER
went to the
park to play soccer. On
Sunday, when his family
left for the park, he and a
friend decided to hide and
see if anyone showed up.
About 15 minutes after
his family left for their out-
ing. Fortner, who resides
nearby, approached the
home, jumped. the fence
and entered the residence.
The homeowner surprised
Fortner who was standing
in his kitchen, then called
authorities.
Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office Sgt. Jared
Nichols responded and took
Fortner into custody. He
reportedly gave a sworn
statement admitting to
entering the residence
unlawfully. The homeowner
advised he suspected
Fortner since he occasional-
ly caught him in his yard,
but he always said he was
looking for his dog.

Funding to the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District to
improve and complete flood
hazard maps totals $16.8
million with a recent grant
of $1.9 million from the
Federal Emergency
Management Agency
(FEMA). The grant was
approved by the District
governing board this week
and will improve flood risk
maps primarily in
Gadsden, Gulf, Calhoun,
Leon and Liberty counties.
"FEMA notified us, of
additional grant funding
under its new program,
RISK MAP, to fill deficien-
cies that were recognized in
processing flood hazard
maps of the Apalachicola
-and Ochlockonee river
basins," said Ron Bartel,
District Director of


Resource Management.
"This work will also sup-
port outreach for our
coastal counties, including
upgrades of our website,
NWFWMDfloodmaps
.com."
"I am pleased with the
diligent work of District
staff that has persuaded
FEMA to continue funding
for data collection that will
serve many water resource
purposes," said District
Executive Director
Douglas Barr. "More accu-
rate flood maps and flood
elevation data across north-
west Florida will improve
stormwater engineering
and flood prevention plan-
ning and help protect lives
and property."
Actual cash match spent
to date from the District's
general revenue source is


about $133,326.
Additionally, local gov-
ernments have provided
cash matches of $264,987
and in-kind efforts to help
the District achieve com-
prehensive flood hazard
mapping.
The public may access
data at the NOAA Coastal
Service Center Digital
Coast: Data Access, Viewer,
http ://csc-s-maps-
q.csc.noaa.gov/dataview-
er/viewer.html or view a
somewhat coarser version
at USGS, http://
nmviewogc.cr.usgs.gov/vie

web site, NWFWMD

vides information about
Light Detection and
Ranging (LiDAR) and will
update detailed data sets as
they become available.


BP officials say "no thanks"

Local queens trying to support


oil spill workers turned away


Several area queens
traveled all the way to
Pensacola last Monday to
assist in the oil spill efforts.
The ladies collected hun-
dreds of bottles of water to
donate to the cleanup
crews but were told "no
thanks" by BP
Jami Daniels, Miss
Emerald Coast USA spoke
with several BP officials
who informed her that they
were contracting out with
certain corporations for
water and supplies thus
they would not be accept-
ing any donations. The girls
were featured on WEAR
ABC3. and FOX 10 in
Pensacola regarding their
efforts.
The ladies made an
attempt to speak with a few


scattered crewmen who
were on the beach, but
were quickly asked if they
were with the media and
informed they could not
speak to anyone about the
clean up efforts. These
efforts, however intended,
seemed vague as in the 3 +
hours the girls scoured the
beach the only efforts they
witnessed were a handful of
crewmen sitting under a
tent, drinking sodas, and
taking a smoke break.
There were two tents
vacant for several hours
and two men were digging
in the sand with plastic toy
beach shovels. Again, when
asked what they were doing
or what all this meant the
men quickly informed them
they could not talk about


anything.
After searching for help
for nearly four hours, the
girls decided to walk the
beaches handing out chilled
water to all the beach goers
enjoying a day on the beau-
tiful Gulf Coast and encour-
aged them to continue to
promote a healthy hydrat-
ed lifestyle and the well
being of our Gulf waters.
In attendance were Jami
Daniels Miss Emerald
Coast USA; Morgan
Mount, Miss Northwest
Florida; Miss Panhandle,
Jacy Richards; Teen Miss
Panhandle, Skye Hudson;
Teen Miss Gulf Shores,
Whitney Willis; Miss
Pensacola USA, Chelsea
Cooper; and Miss
Pensacola Teen USA,
Gracie Simmons.

Unborn


baby with

kidney

failure;

benefit

planned
BY MARIE HERRING
EMERALD COAST HOSPICE
Emerald Coast Hospice
strives to help members in
our community during the
most difficult time in their
lives. Now we are asking for
the community to assist one
of our own who is facing a
difficult time.
One of our case man-
agers, Rachel Hatcher, and
her husband, Phillip, are
facing a difficult journey.
Their unborn son, Bryson,
has been diagnosed with
kidney failure. Rachel will
be going to Jackson
Hospital in Miami to deliv-
er her son who will immedi-
ately be put on dialysis
while he awaits a kidney
transplant. Rachel will
remain in Miami to be with
her son throughout his
recovery. We ask everyone
in the community to pray
for Bryson and the whole
Hatcher family.
Rachel, who resides in
Blountstown, has dedicated
her career for caring for her
patients and their families.
Her kindness and dedica-
tion has made a difference
in numerous lives and now
we are trying to make a dif-
ference in hers.
We at Emerald Coast
Hospice are working to ease
the financial burden on the
family. We will be sponsor-
ing "Butts for Bryson." Our
staff will cook Boston butts
on July 1st to be delivered
on July 2nd. All the pro-
ceeds will go the Hatcher
family to help with the
many medical and other
expenses they are incurring.
We are looking to our com-
munity partners for assis-
tance with donations of the
materials needed for the
event. Any way you can
assist us would be greatly
appreciated.
If anyone would like to
purchase a Boston butt or
give a donation for the
Hatcher family, please con-
tact our office at 850-526-
3577. You can also come by
our office at 4374 Lafayette
St. Marianna, FL.
When one member of
our community needs help,
it .is our honor to come to
their aid. We know that that
sentiment is shared. We
thank you for your support.

myself from the -element
and stresses of the dastard-
ly world I had painted so
vividly in my mind allowed
me to recuperate and
reevaluate what I thought I
never had or what I
assumed I was missing.
It wasn't long before I
became more and more
studious of my situation
and my present form.
Without the luxuries of
home and being stuck on a
military base right in the
arm pit of humanity pushed
my rationale beyond my
boundaries of reasonable
temperament. Mistake not
such luxuries as Burger
King, Pizza Hut, Wal-Mart
Or corporations in similar
likeness as the culprit they
play only a small role. It
wasn't the hundreds of dif-
ferent television channels
or Playstation or X-Box or
even the latest automobiles
tooling down the main
drag. The things were sim-
ple and aesthetic the sim-
ple things I think any
American could take for
granted. Clean fresh air,
green grass, tall green
trees, flowers, a barrage of
insects and animals and the
sound that accompany
them, fluctuations in tem-
peratures, family, friends
and Saturday afternoon
grilling. Traveling along
the highway and not seeing
garbage for as far as the eye
can see and people living
amongst the chaos as if
nothing were wrong, people
begging at virtually every
stop and turning down food
only wanting money.
Families who truly need
not selling their kid(s) off
temporarily to go panhan-
dling with a less fortunate
family for a cut of the prof-
it accumulate that day. It
is a true, sad and disturbing
state of affairs to be part of
such an abnormal commu-
nity of people who know no
different and desire for
nothing better, it is,unfortu-


nate. Yet through it all it
has reminded me of what I
do have and what I have to
miss and that is a great
deal.
We have our differences
and beliefs bock home in
the U.S. but they pale in
comparison to the savage
truth that lies out there in
the rest of the "civilized"
world. We as Americans
fail' to realize on a
daily/hourly basis what
great things we have at our
disposal and the incredible
potential we possess to
make things better than
they already are, our
inability to bypass our idio-
cy as a republic and band
together and put forth a
change for positive, encum-
bers the ideals that define
American. values. We
should find that scope, that
niche we once possessed,
find a change within us for
the common good, a change
that embodies what
America was instituted for,
a change that will inspire
nations and resonate
through the generations to
come.
I look at our own issues
and the apparent down
turn in the morale of the
social structure and I still
believe in the American
dream, not for some, but
for us all. I can only hope
that in due time we can
look past the minute issues
that don't benefit the
greater good, but only serv-
ice a greater few and forge
forward together as one
and climb out of the pit of
disparity, forever. I hope
tomorrow we do believe,
but not today.
GOD Bless the readers
and GOD Bless the United
States of America.

Altha All-Stare


Big Bend Baseball mourns


the loss of Mitchell Larkins


Altha Ozone wins district;


The Big Bend Baseball
League of Florida was sad-
dened this past weekend
with the passing of Mitchell
Larkins, Assistant
Commissioner of the
Eastern Division.
While serving only a
short time as our Assistant
Commissioner in the
Eastern Division Mr,
Larkins made his indelible
mark in the League work-"
ing tirelessly in raising
money for the League and
his beloved'Liberty County
Diamond Dawgs. Out of
respect for his wife,
Carolyn, and the family,
both scheduled games in
the Eastern Division were
postponed and will be
rescheduled for a later


date, therefore, no change
in the Eastern Division
standings within the league.
In the Western Division,
the Destin Dawgs climbed
back into first place with a
double-header win over the
Bay County Brewers. The
Brewers slipped back into
second place but less than
one percentage point
behind the Dawgs.
Meanwhile, the
Washington Bruins slipped
from second place to third
place by losing to the
Jackson County Jays 6-5 in
11 innings of play.
Congratulations to the
Jackson Jays in picking up
their first win of the season.
Please note the change'
in the schedule of games on


Sunday, July the 4th as fol-
lows:

headed to state tournament ,. .
:.. - ... - .. ... alcernalte: R on the rise


The Altha Ozone
Allstars began tournament
play last week in Havana.
Competing against five
other teams for the title of
district champs, the Altha
Ozone was very excited and
hoping for a long ,week.
They outscored their oppo-
nents 53-24 'in five games
of district play.
. In Game 1 on Saturday,
the team. faced Havana.
Behind the pitching of
Cody Barfield and Dylan
Smith, along with some
great offense, the team was
victorious, defeating
Havana 12-0.
On Monday, game 2 was
against. a very strong
Liberty County All-Star
team. After a close game,
with some costly errors, the
game was tied going into
the 6th inning, 6-6. Altha
was able to secure the win
on a stolen base after a wild
pitch in the bottom of the
6th inning, winning 7-6. On


the mound for Altha in this
game were Sawyer
O'Bryan, Barfield and
Smith.
Tuesday brought game 3
for the Altha Allstar team,
still undefeated in district
play, and facing off against
Blountstown. The Altha
team was eager to take the
field and through a great
display of smart base-run-
ning and team effort, the
Cats were able ,to defeat
.the Tigers, winning 8-5.
Now 3-0 in district play,
Altha was the only team
without a loss.
The next matchup
would be Wednesday
against Quincy. On the
mound for Altha was Jaylon
Hall and Cy Barton. Altha
gave up one run during this
game and was very aggres-
sive offensively, hitting the
ball well. After 4 innings,
due to mercy rule, Altha
,was victorious, 14-1.
Finally, on Thursday,


Championship game, Altha
versus Liberty County,
again. Knowing how close
the previous match-up was,
the Wildcats were looking
to get ahead early. With
Cody Barfield on the
mound, Altha was able to
hold the Bulldogs to one
run in the first three innings
and secure the win against
Liberty County, 12-6.
This is the first Altha
team that has ever one a
Dixie District
Championship. The team
will advance to State play-
offs in Sebring beginning
July 9. Behind any success-
ful team is a great group of
parents and coaches. In an
effort to help off-set the cost
of attending state, -the
group will be having
fundraisers in the coming
*week and will be accepting
donations. Contact any par-
ent for more-information.
Good luck, Wildcats, at
,State!


Altha Angels named runners


up in district 2 tournament


The Altha Angels
Allstar Team competed in
district tournament play
last week in Carrabelle.
The team, comprised of
girls ages 10 and under, was
the first All-Star team for
the Altha Angels.

Tournament play began
Friday night against Wewa.
With a score of 23-9, the
Altha Angels were victori-
ous. Josie Hall and Hadley
Barfield were pitchers for
this game.
On Saturday, Altha
began the day against
Marianna. Josie Hall
pitched this game giving up
one hit, striking out four
and allowing only two
walks. Offensively, Altha
was successful and defeated
Marianna in a very tense
game, 8-1.
The second game of the
day on Saturday was
against Port St. Joe. It
began on Saturday but, due
to rain delay, had to be fin-
ished on Sunday. The
Angels were victorious over
Port St. Joe, defeating them
in the bottom of the 5th
inning, 8-7. It took a combi-
nation of pitching from
Megaft Mantecon, Kinsey
Register and Hadley
Barfield to bring the team
to victory.
Now 3-0 in the tourna-
ment, the Altha Angels


were,definitely going to be
playing in the champi-
onship game. However,
they had to face off with the
Angels from Sneads prior to
the championship game.
,After-. many costly errors
defensively, the Altha
Angels fell to Sneads, 7-16.
With this loss being the
only loss thus far in tourna-
ment play, the Angels held
a 3-1 tournament record
and were headed to the
championship game. In this
game, the Angels faced the
same Marianna team as
before. A very close game
ensued, 0-0 after 1st inning
and 1-1 after inning two.


* The Marianna team came
alive offensively- after the
second inning, defeating
the Altha Angels, 7-1.
This team was the first
ever -team to represent
Altha in a Dixie Softball
tournament. It was truly
remarkable that they
placed second out of six
teams, being a first year
team. A lot of hard work
went into this team backed
by a group of very support-
ive parents. This will be a
great group to keep an eye
on in the future.
Congratulations, Altha
Angels on a. great perform-
nce!

Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging horse
owners- to get their animals
vaccinated following an
upsurge in the number of
Eastern Equine
Encephalitis cases.
Sentinel chickens that
serve as an early warning of
the existence of the disease
are. also being diagnosed
with EEE in, areas of the
state that are not usually
affected.
So far this year there
have been 16 confirmed
cases of EEE in horses.
While that is not. an unusu-

the cases were reported on
Wednesday, June 23, from"
counties scattered through-
out the state.
"Most of thie cases have
been in the-cefitral" and

Bronson said. "But we are

EEE detected in 30 years.
In addition, there has been
a confirmed case of EEE in
a horse in both Collier and
Okeechobee counties. So I
want to remind horse own-
ers of the importance of
getting their animals vacci-,
nated."

EEE is a viral disease
that affects the central
nervous system and is
transmitted to horses by
infected mosquitoes. Signs
of the virus include fever,
listlessness, stumbling, cir-
cling, coma and usually
death. The disease is fatal
in horses in 90 percent of
the cases.

"This is far from over."'
That was the word from
Sky Scott of Calhoun
County, who serves on the
board of the Florida State
Foxhunters Association,
after the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) voted
last Wednesday to move
forward with a draft rule
prohibiting the operation of
fox and coyote enclosures.
The decision followed
consideration of a suite of
options to improve the
process governing the
enclosures and listening to
several hours of comments
from the public.
The presentation by
Maj. Curtis Brown with the
FWC's Captive Wildlife
and Investigations Section
focused on humane treat-
ment of foxes and coyotes
and translocation of dis-
ease. He proposed three
options for consideration,
including' prohibiting the
enclosures outright, contin-
uing to allow the enclosures
with stricter regulations or
phasing out the enclosures
by January of 2013.
After six hours of discus-
sion and testimonies from
about 80 members of the
public, whose responses
varied frbm calling the
practice a "valued family
tradition" to a "cruel prac-
tice and threat to tradition-
, al hunting," Chairman
Rodney Barreto began the
decision-making portion of
the meeting.
"As long as I've been

needs to be a leader in
America. We need to end
the use of these enclosures
and end them now."
For nearly a year, the
FWC has been working to
make the right decisions
regarding the controversial
practice of chasing foxes
and'coyotes with dogs with-
in enclosures. FWC staff
and Commissioners have
worked with the public to
improve both the permit
process for the enclosures
arid the methods by which
they are maintained.
Last September, FWC
Commissioners directed
the agency's law enforce-
ment staff to review the
permitting .process and
research the history and
number of such enclosures
in the state. The
Commission also ceased
issuing fox and coyote
enclosure permits at that

time.
At the February 2010
Commission meeting,
Commissioners approved
the temporary prohibition ,
of chasing foxes and coyotes
in enclosures. FWC staff
was directed to work with
stakeholders to address cer-
tain issues of concern
regarding the enclosures
and to draft rules guiding
them.
FWC staff will publish a
draft rule that details the
definition of an enclosure,
contains language address-
ing the prohibition and
establishes a timeline for
relinquishing foiQ and coy-
otes currently in posses-
sion. Staff was directed to
bring a final rule back for
consideration to the
September meeting in
Westin. FWC staff also
agreed to explore further
options for dog-hunting of
foxes and coyotes on open
public lands around the
state.

Alford and Johnson



family extends thanks


To the Editor:
The Alford & Johnson
families would like to
express their deepest
appreciation to everyone
who came to their aid after
the recent flood of R.L. and
Hilda's home. Whether it
was a silent prayer that was
offered up or extensive
repairs done on the home,
each of these acts of lfind-
ness did not go unnoticed.
As we watched the
water move into the house,
a normal reaction would
have been a feeling of hope-
lessness ,and that was the
initial response. But as we
immediately began to wit-
ness our friends and neigh-
bors come to our rescue,
hope was restored. It was
just another reminder of
God's promise, that in all
things, He works for good
for those who love Him.
That work is done through
His people and you really
came through.
There were far too
many people to name, but
we would like to specifical-
ly thank a few. We can't say
enough about the ambu-
lance service and the hospi-
tal. They came with such
efficiency and professional-


ism and reassured us that
we would be taken care of
and not to worry. What a
wonderful feeling at such a
difficult time. People even
called with concern for the
horses and helped with'
moving and boarding them
as well.

Once the word of the
flood got out, people began
to call and come to us with-
out even being asked.
Danny Ryals offered to
help store furniture and
other belongings. We
learned how crucial it was
to work fast to prevent
mold and mildew from set-
ting in. So, the next morn-
ing members from the
.Ministry Center and boys
from the Wilderness Camp
arrived to remove all the
damaged material. The
Red Cross was also on the
scene right away with assis-
tance. Thanks to Ramsey's
Piggly Wiggly for remem-
bering that food is lost dur-
ing disasters, too.
Blountstown Elementary
provided meals in the days
following the event as well.
There were also many indi-
viduals who gave donations
and sent support in many


different forms.
We want to give a very
special thanks to the
Rivertown Community
Church for the repairs on
the home and the business-
es that provided materials.
Many people whom we
didn't even know came and
worked 'and sweated and
poured out their hearts just
to help us. They not only
repaired, but cleaned appli-
ances and windows, weed-
ed flower beds and mowed
just to name a few of the
extra chores they per-
formed. They worked with
efficiency that would put
any construction company
to shame. From women
and small children to
skilled professionals, their
organization and talent was
unmatched. Volunteers
spent their Saturdays and
even a holiday at our house
instead of enjoying time off
with their own families. It
was really a sight to behold.
Again, we can't thank all
of you enough. We will
never forget your selfless
acts of kindness to our fam-
ily. God bless you all.

trip to friends and family.
Visit the travel website
www.lonelyplanet.com to
get started!
6. Read Every Day
No list of summer learn-
ing activities would be com-
plete without reading.
Reading with a child is one
of the most educational and
enjoyable pastimes around.
Your local library is a valu-
able resource and often will
host special events through-
out the summer. Make sure
that you and your child
have a library card and
explore the shelves togeth-
er. Take turns reading to
each other and, if it is not
already part of your bed-
time routine, set aside 30
minutes each night to get
into a good book with your
child. And don't forget to
sign up your young reader
for free motivational pro-
grams like
www.BookAdventure.com
that reward her with prizes
for her reading accomplish-
ments.
7. Listen "to a Story
- Even on your iPod or
iPhone
You probably know that
your whole family can listen
to great literature together,
thanks to the many record-
ed books you can check out
for free from your local pub-
lic library. These are great
choices for long family road
trips or vacations. But did
you know that your iPod-
toting teen or tween can
also listen to great literature
on-the-go, wherever he is?
Lots of free literature pod-
casts are available for
everything from Aesop's
Fables to Zola. Visit the


podcast 'directory
* http://www.openculture.co
m/freeaudiobooks to pick
the perfect literature pod-
casts for your child this
summer.
8. Family Game
Night
Set aside one night a
week for family game night.
Chess supports youngsters'
analytical and problem-
solving skills, and scrabble,
helps boost spelling and
vocabulary skills. You can
play the board game, or
even play free online ver-
sions, if your 'plugged in'
students prefer. And every
day, you can add magnetic
letters to your fridge or play
with Connections
Academy's virtual version.
9. Hit the Park
Take a family field trip
to a local park or historic
site. Kids love animals and
nature, and can learn lots
about science while having
a ball. Don't forget to ask
park officials if they have
any free student guides or
activities for your kids.
Many historic sites stage
re-enactments of battles or
life in time gone by -
school, home life -- that
really bring history to life
for youngsters. Your family
can also visit some of our
nation's most popular
national parks, like
Yosemite, without even
leaving home, thanks to
free sites like
www.yosemite.org,

10. Blast Off! to
Outer Space
Visit your local science
museum or observatory to
learn about astronomy with
your kids. Then visit
www.NASA.gov, a treasure
trove of free science activi-
ties, information and videos
for kids. There's even a
game area, indexed by
grade level.

Arrow of Truth

by Rev. R.W. Waterman


Praying In Agony

Luke 22:44
Can you remember a time when you prayed most of the
night or maybe a great deal for days, weeks, or months,
with a heart filled with anguish? I can remember such
times when my heart was broken; my world fell down
around me. Yet, in all of my time of agony, I never felt the
anguish that Jesus felt that night in the Garden of
Gethsemane.
As I think about this scene of Jesus' sweating great
drops of blood, I wonder what part of this time in His life
caused him the most pain. Was it the rejection He experi-
enced? Could it have been the unfair trial? Or was it dread
of the actual death on the cross? I just don't think any of
these were the cause of His deepest pain.
I think that His knowledge that He would bear the sins
of the world crushed Him. I think of the unspeakable war
crimes, child abuse, sexual sins, blasphemy, murder, the
sins that his pure conscience had to bear. Even God the
Father had to abandon Him to fulfill the redemptive work
of grace. When we see the anguish of Christ, we know we
could never ever repay our debt in full. Yet He paid our
debt for us. 0 what undying love was sacrificed on the cross
for you and I.

This Fourth of July, discover your rights and responsibilities




11 ways to be a better American


July 4th certainly is the
most patriotic of our
national holidays.
American Flags, parades
on Main Street, and burst-
ing fireworks provide us
with a spirit of pride and
celebration. It is also a
time to reflect on our rights
and responsibilities as
American citizens. There is
always room for our voice
to be heard and perhaps
now more than ever -we
need to joiri hands in taking
the lead.
Hatherleigh Press has
recently released The
Handbook for Americans
(Hatherleigh, 2010) to pro-
vide ever citizen with an
important reference for
understanding their coun-


try and their rights to par-
ticipate in shaping its
future.
The Handbook for
Americans calls for United
States' citizens to partici-
pate fully and without
delay and offers eleven
simple ways you can play
an active role in building
what President Franklin
Delano Roosevelt called "a
greater, a more stable and a
more tolerant America."
V Vote. By participat-
ing in elections at the local,
state and national level, we
make our opinions heard.
Understand the issues.
Learn as much as you can
about the candidates. Vote
responsibly.
V Stay informed.


VFW continued-


Read newspapers, maga-
zines, blogs. Talk to your
friends, co-workers, neigh-
bors. Go online and read
current Bills before
Congress. An educated
American is an empowered
citizen.
V Exercise your
right to free speech.
When we articulately and
intelligently state our opin-
ions, popular or not, we
truly live up to the hopes
and dreams of the
Founding Fathers.
Freedom of speech is an
extraordinary right.
V Support American
businesses. When we
buy products labeled
"Made in USA", we are
supporting our economy
and creating jobs for our
fellow citizens.
V Support
Americans in need.


The Gulf oil disaster. Flash
floods. Our neighbors need
us. Help your fellow
Americans. Donate your
time, services or money to
those less fortunate than
you.
V Use .your time
meaningfully and
wisely. Volunteer for local
charities. Help out at the
local school or nursing
home. Organize a neighbor-
hood clean-up. Let's all do
what we can to support
each other.
V Reread our found-
ing documents. The
principles laid out in the
Declaration of
Independence,
Constitution, and the Bill
of Rights are timeless and
essential. This country's
founders envisioned a
future we are living out
today-and we can turn to


these documents whenever
our democratic institutions
and expectations are chal-
lenged and need to be rein-
vigorated.
V Look to the past
for perspective. Our
nation's history is rich with
moments when strength
and resilience transcended
hardship and adversity.
Look to the lives of our
great leaders, Presidents,
and citizens for inspiration.
V Teach the next
generation. Like any-
thing else, enlightened
patriotism comes from edu-
cation, not ignorance.
Teach the children about
the special rights and
responsibilities we share as
Americans, and how they
can exercise those rights.
Set the example by being a
good citizen.
V Enjoy and protect


America's natural
resources. Conserve.
Recycle. Help clean up a
river or plant a tree. Our
democracy deserves a
home as beautiful as its
ideals.

V Above all else: Bet
on good. Believe in
America. Believe that
together we can forge a bet-
ter future and better ways
of doing things. Believe it,
then do it.
The ultimate success of
our democracy rests upon
the individual citizens who
make up this great Nation.
The Handbook for
Americans reminds you
that it is easy to get started
and celebrate America in
however way fits your
lifestyle. So this Fourth of
July, get out and share your
pride'for the United States.
