Suffers Heart Attack and
Winds Up In the Bay
Bill Merchant, 108 Mimosa Ave-
nue, had a very dramatic heart attack
Monday afternoon, as he was going
home from work.
Merchant, the manager at CE
Basic's magnesia plant here, appar-
ently blacked out when he had the
attack near Johnson's Lumber com-
pany in Highland View and ran off the
road into St. Joseph's Bay, where his
small pick-up truck came to rest in
about two feet of water.
Merchant was not injured by the
accident, but was taken to Gulf Pines
for immediate treatment from his
coronary attack. He was transferred
to the cardiac unit in a Bay co-:nty
hospital during the night Monday.
He had a heart catherization

"We Did It but We Didn't Mean to"
"They said we did it, but we didn't
mean to", Al Cathey, Mexico Beach
commissioner told The Star in com-
menting on a hearing before the state
Ethics Commission late last week.
Cathey had appeared before the
Commission to face charges leveled
by Mexico Beach Commissioner Bill
Horn that he had cast a vote which
was a conflict of interest in his
capacity as commissioner. The alleg-
ed conflict was a vote by Cathey to
allow an auto paint shop to be zoned
into a building owned by Cathey. The
zoning on the particular building in
the particular neighborhood allowed a
paint shop to be one of several uses
allowed in the particular zone, but one
which must be reviewed by the
council on request.
Cathey had first tried to abstain
from voting on the zoning question,
but on explanation of Mayor Bob Hale
that the Zoning Committee had
approved the request and the use of
the building was allowable in this
particular zone, Cathey cast his vote.
The Ethics Commission said this
may have been a wrong decision by
Cathey and thus decided to levy only a
$100.00 fine for the possible infraction
of the rules.
Cathey said the commission took
into consideration the fact he tried not
to vote in the matter and ruled that his
final decision to do so, under
persuasion, could possibly have been
construed as a conflict.
"Under the circumstances, they
levied the least fine they could",
Cathey said. The fine happened to be
the $100.00, but Cathey said they still
haven't called for payment of the fine
- Al Cathey
Cathey said he was very pleased
with the outcome of the hearing. "It's
all over now and we can get on with
the business of running the city".
Cathey will begin a new term in
office on November 8, when he will be
re-elected to a new term in office.
Cathey was not opposed in his

DER GETS THEIR LICKS
The Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation got their licks in
against the county for a decision of
two weeks ago to stop using the Bay
County incinerator for the remainder
of the current calendar year.
The Commission voted to haul'
solid waste from the south end of the
county to the Buckhorn landfill area
for the remainder of the year, when
Buckhorn is scheduled to be closed by
the county. The county agreed to close
Buckhorn and begin hauling all
county solid waste to the incinerator,
last month. Solid waste from the Port
St. Joe area has been going to Bay
county for nearly a year with

When the school has homecoming,
all the town has homecoming for
an entire week. The first part of the
week is taken up with float building
and Friday is spent presenting a
parade, playing a spirited football
game and choosing a homecoming
queen to reign until homecoming,
The annual parade will be held
Friday afternoon, when gaily dec-
orated floats, cars, marching groups,
costumed marchers and pretty home-
coming queen candidates will be
displayed for the approving glances of
the entire community.
Friday night's homecoming foot-
ball game will be with always-tough
District foe, Monticello. Game time
will be at 8:00 p.m.
Whipping up enthusiasm for the
afternoon will begin at 11:20 Friday
morning, when the entire school will
be engaged in a giant pep rally. School
will be dismissed at 1:00 p.m., and the
pepped up students will be turned out
on the community.
"Records" will be the theme of
this year's homecoming, with floats
decorated to express the theme of the
class' favorite recordings.

,Plans for Reid Avenue Get Started
Planting a few shrubs along the way and beautifying Reid
Avenue is going to mean a lot to our small city.
A decision reached last week on a plan for beautification by
a committee composed of representatives from the Merchants
Association and the City Commission has come up with a
proposal which won't cost much but will improve the
appearance of our city considerably.
There are several things which could be done to our city to
improve its appearance, but, unfortunately, they all cost
money. Many of the suggestions of plans cost a lot of money;
something which isn't all that readily availavable right now.
The plan to install 10 green shrubs in each of the Reid
Avenue blocks within the next month or two should be a giant
step forward to perking up the appearance of our community.
Anything at all to help the appearance of our town is
welcome. It will be almost like putting a paint job on the old
family bus and driving it a year or two more. It just seems to
run better when it gets all prettied up.
Our town will seem much better to us and we will all be
more proud of it after we get a few eye-pleasing flowers and
shrubs in place. It's just human nature.
We don't know about you, but we're proud of our town.
Along with being proud comes more than a little jealousy.
We're jealous of the reputation some give us. We're jealous of
anything which would come along to destroy or stunt the growth
of our community.
Both the merchants and the commission have intentions to
have the beautification in place by the date of the Christmas
and Florida Sesquicentennial parade on December 3. We'r glad
they have a deadline like that. We're not concerned the
beautification be done before the celebration, but with a goal in
mind, the work will progress and not lag along.
We'll be waiting, anxiously, for this first phase
beautification project to be completed.
No Tricks, Please
This week end belongs to the kids as they enjoy and
participate in the hallowe'en process of parades, carnivals and
trick or treat sessions on Monday night.
Hallowe'en means there will be kids all over the streets,
going from house to house after dark, having a good time
collecting up their goodies.
The thing for us as adults to do, is to watch out for these
small goblins and ghosts. If we do, they will not only have a
good time, but they will be safe in having it.
We know there isn't a person out there who would willfully
hurt one of the myriads of children who will be on the streets
over the week end. Nobody in his right mind would hurt a child
purposely. If a child should be hurt, it would be an accident, we
know. What we're urging on you is that you take an extra
measure of care as you get about this week end and make sure
you are not responsible for any accident which might happen.
And parents, take extra care to caution your kids as they go
on their rounds of merriment. Caution them in taking care. We
wouldn't them to be responsible for causing an accident through
their careless actions. In fact, it would probably be a good idea
if you go with them, but stay off at a discreet distance to allow
them the night out all kids look forward to on hallowe'en.
The three trapped whales up in the Arctic Ocean have come
in for their share of nation wide publicity of late. If you have
been in Lower Slobovia for the past week or two, there were
three whales trapped by an ice floe and they couldn't get to open
People, including our armed forces in the area, have been
involved in trying to open them up a channel in the ice to get to
In the process, we read where some half million dollars has
been spent in the process, which seems to be a little much to us;
even for three whales.
Early this week terrorists said they would be announcing a
figure for the release of Terry Anderson and Thomas
Sutherland. The response to this offer should be interesting.

How About Them Dawgs
Homecoming week. Now there's a
special time in your high school
career. Build a float, win a big game,
crown a queen, miss some classes, see
a parade, get out early on Friday, a
little home-town spirit for everyone. I
remember my first one. Buddy and
me, Ricky, Jim Bob and the gang
were sitting around the lunch room
table playing "Bombseye". You've
played this one I know. You place an
English pea carefully on the end of a
knife kind'a like this, hold the han-
dle in your left hand, ease the pea
mounted end of that weapon back with
the index finger of the right hand -
you're loaded, cocked and ready. Bud-
dy and Ricky kept an eye on the
teachers table while you select a vic-
tim. Those teachers were too engross-
ed in conversation about the teacher
who wasn't there Ricky said,
"Now", and with a pull of your index
finger and a snap of the left wrist, it
I always missed Mary E. but I'd
get LaRenda or Pam or Nola. Of
course we didn't see much after the
pea exploded 'cause when the girls
looked around we'd be busy eating our
porridge and peas like little angels.
The hard part was not laughing. Silly
you say. Well, maybe so, but it was
something to do and you know
seventh graders, they'll find some-
thing to do.
On this particular day, Ricky,
with a four table shot, had hit Milli-
cent Blackburn just above the right
eye. We had our heads stuck in the
porridge when Janie sat down, "Hi
fellows, mind if Ijoin you?"
Janie was a senior. What was she
doing at the Junior High lunch. It
didn't matter 'cause she was nice, she
talked and talked, said we were all
cute and she knew my older brother
Leon. Can you imagine, a senior girl
eating with us! I'll tell you how im-
pressed we were we didn't fire off
another pea and Jim Bob actually ate
with a fork.
I couldn't wait till that afternoon
to tell Leon about Janie eating with
us. He just kind'a shook his head,
laughed and said, "It's homecoming
week, you idiot."
I didn't know what he was talking
about, Janie was nice to us again on
Tuesday, I voted for her on Wednes-
day, she was crowned Homecoming
Queen at halftime Friday night and
she never spoke to me again. I think
Janie would have talked to us again
but she was just busy being a senior
and all, besides, her lunch period
must have been changed back.
Homecomings, aren't they great?
Coaches and street cleaners don't like
'em. Flower shops love them. Most of
the players don't really care and the
opponent of the week has an extra in-
centive. All the senior girls tell you
they want Becky to win or Sue to win
or they don't care who wins ....
I was a lot wiser as to how things
went by the time I got to be a senior. I
wasn't surprised when Pam wanted to
go steady a week and a half before
Homecoming. There were three votes
in my family so on Monday Nola
Purcell moved into the house. I can
still see her now, helping Mother with
breakfast telling her what fine
children she had and saying she hoped
Pam or Vicki or Beth won .
We had a serious problem with
homecoming that year. We couldn't
find eight senior girls that wouldn't
embarrass us if we had to send them

out on the field. Even my Dad admit-
ted it wasn't a bumper crop. Buddy
told Mary E. if she didn't get on the
court the juniors wanted her to pull
their float. The parade was a problem
- you know how the girls ride in those
convertibles Mr. Spinks down at the
clay pits came through, as he loaned
us some Mack trucks.
I voted for LaRenda 'cause she
used to let me have her cornbread at
lunch. Pinky Hudson, that new girl
from Gleason, was crowned queen.
Buddy said afterwards that she'd won
it by a nose.
I think homecomings are pro-
bably a lot different now.
You know, I played football,
basketball, baseball and graduated,

Grandchildren Are Usually A Surprise A Minute to Grandparents
EVERYBODY OUGHT TO love
their children and especially their
grandchildren. That's what they're
for. Really, there's nothing else you
can do with them. Most of us get a lot
.of satisfaction out of our children and
Our children or grandchildren can
be as homely as a mud fence, but they
are all beautiful to those they belong
That's the way it works.
Usually one gets more enjoyment
out of grandchildren than they did out
of their own children. I guess this is
because when our children were
coming along, we had to work so hard
to keep food on the table and clothes
on their backs and tend their hurts
and illnesses, we didn't have as much
time to enjoy as we do with the
Then too, as I have observed here
before, when the grandchildren get
unruly or disturbing, you can always
send them home to their parents. With
our children, it was another matter.
You have to keep them around, even
though they are causing you to pull
your hair out.
I REMEMBER WHEN my chil-
dren were growing up, I didn't get
much time at home. It was always a
rat race to see which happened first:
whether the business went broke or
the kids needed another pair of shoes.
Those things may not be the national
debt and the crises it causes or the
SALT treaty, or the Russians trying to
one-up on you somewhere in the
world, but personally, such problems
were as close as I ever want to get to
the national debt type problems.
Now that all that agony and the
ecstasy is over and not a part of our
lives, I have some time to reflect; on
I have 12 of the "little darlins"
and there isn't a one I would send back
for a replacement or pull the book on
the guarantee. As a grandfather, I am
naturally proud of each and every one
Even so, there are times I cduld
wring the neck or pinch the ear of one
or more of them.
OF MY EVEN DOZEN grand-
children, 10 are boys and only two are
This makes for a recipe which will
keep you loose in handling the things
they discover to do both to you and for
I have grandchildren who will cut
the grass at our house-for a
'grandson' fee, of course-and there
are others who get ill at the sight of a
lawn mower. There are those who will
help me wash the car if they happen to
come up when I'm busy with that task.
But, let us understand one thing. If
they come up during car washing
hours, it usually means they need a
dollar or two and they realize they
won't get it if they don't help finish
washing the car. At least, they are
astute enough to know their touch will
be easier and more rewarding if they
have helped with the car washing.
There are smart ones who don't
mind others knowing they are smart
and there are smart ones who would
die if someone knew they were keen in
the knowledge department.
MOST OF ALL, with grandchil-
dren, you don't know what to expect
next. I have never ceased to be
amazed at what will interest them.
One Christmas I bought each of
them a nice gift and as an after-
thought, put a small inexpensive
flashlight in their stocking. The
expensive gift was laid aside and the
flashlight was the hit of the party.
That's'why I wasn't too surprised
when the parents of one of my
grandsons said the other day, "Have
you seen Bill's snake?"
That's like asking me "Have you
seen Bill's cottonmouth?" or his
rattlesnake, or water moccasin, or
maybe his coral snake.
No, I had not seen Bill's snake,
nor was I all that keen on doing so.
Grandson Bill had actually paid
money-U.S. currency-for a snake!
He bought it out of a pet store and was
as pleased as punch with himself for
having purchased such a perfect pet.
Now, he owns a 24 foot boa
constrictor (or so it seems) and
carries it draped about his neck.
Come to think of it; he hasn't been
to our house since he bought it.
I really can't think of what he
might have lacked in his upbringing
which would make him want to
purchase a snake. It's hard to imagine
Bill paying good money out for any
animal at all: but, a snake!?
I think the reason Bill bought it
was one of several. One, he could
effectively keep his momma from
snooping around in his room, with the
snake in there. He could attract other
kids. He could use it to scare other
kids. He could use it to keep his neck
warm. It didn't need much care, since
it only eats once a month. Nobody
would steal him, or her, or it.
Understand, I have just heard
about this new pet in the family. I
haven't seen it with my own eyes. Bill
hasn't been over to our house since he
purchased this new pet, and we
certainly haven't been to his house.
Come to think of it, his grand-
mother might have requested that he
stay away from our house if it was
necessary the snake went everywhere

A College Visit
Last Saturday morning my wife, our youngest son and I trav-
eled to Tallahassee to attend the Florida State-Louisiana Tech
We do not attend football games regularly. As a matter of
fact, I can't remember when we last attended a college football
game before Saturday. Why face the expense, crowds and time
involved when I can sit in the comfort of my living room, with
food and drink a few steps away, a seat on the 50 yard line, see
the game in living color with instant replay and not have to wor-
ry about rain, excessive heat or cold?
The real reason we traveled to Tallahassee was because our
daughter was to perform in the pre-game show and our oldest
son is living in Tallahassee, attending F.S.U. and we wanted to
visit with him.
All reasons considered, I was still not looking forward to
this trip. Quite frankly, I dreaded it. Not only was I going to miss
playing golf and our usual Saturday night card game, but I knew
it would kill the whole day and part of the night. Besides that, I
knew attending ballgames is an expensive venture.
On the way home, however, I knew I was fortunate to have
made the trip. It was quite an experience and gave me some val-
uable insight on young people today and college students in
Below are a few things I learned about college students at

I know, water is still the cheapest utility available, but my son

years ago. The mass of students cheered last Saturday when po-
lice evicted a few students for drinking and/or fighting during
last Saturday's game.
41 don't recall seeing a single student light up or smoke a

students, a girl and a boy, rushed over, picked up the change,
handed it to the lady, patted her on the back and were on their
In my opinion,. we.have much to be proud of in our young ,
.people today, I hope all students are as outstanding as the ones
I observed at F.S.U. I'm sure they are.
All of my kids are going to Florida State. My older brother
having gone there has nothing whatsoever to do with it!

regional outpatient clinic em-
ploying 27 physicians who spe-
cialize in diagnosing and treating
children's medical problems.
Medical specialities include
gastroenterology, genetics, neu-
rology, ophthalmology, orthoped-
ics, and allergy and immunology.
The clinic is operated and fi-
nanced by the Nemours Founda-
tion, a multimillion-dollar trust
set up by two industrialist-
financiers who came to Jackson-
ville in the 1920's Alfred I du
Pont and Edward Ball.
Breaking ground on the new
clinic Thursday was Just one of
several efforts that Nemours has
made lately to become what ad-
ministrator Barry Sales has
called the equivalent of the "Mayo
Clinic for children."
In July, Nemours Children's
Clinic and the University of Flori-
da announced an affiliation
agreement given clinic physi-
cians a direct pipeline to the lat-
est developments in medical
care, which usually emanate from
medical schools and research
Nemours also has entered a
partnership with Baptist Medical
Center, operator of Wolfson Chil-
dren's Hospital, to consolidate
pediatric care in Jacksonville.
Children treated at the clinic
who need hospitalization will be
referred to Wolfson. to accommo-
date clinic parents, Baptist has
plans to construct a new chil-
dren's hospital, which could be in
operation by 1992.

Yellow Jackets Friday night, winning
their third district game in five tries.
The Gators took an early lead

Homecoming week is off to a
great start at the high school. In
addition to regular classroom
work the teachers and students
are busy decorating the school
and planning for the pep rally on
Friday. The student council has
established a dress code for each
school day, and many students
are working in the afternoon and
night preparing class floats for
the parade on Friday.
"RECORDS" was chosen as
the theme for homecoming, and
school decorations and floats will
be along this line. In the past
school decorations centered
around the "door contest"; howev-
er, this year entire -pods will be
decorated and the gym will be
draped in some very unique pos-
ters which should motivate the
SHARKS to a victory over the

following the pep rally.
Port St. Joe High School will
let out at 1:00 p.m. on Friday in
order to give te students enough
time to prepare for the Home-
coming Parade which will com-
mence at 2:30 p.m.
The Port St. Joe Sharks will meet
the Jefferson County Tigers of Monti-
cello Friday night in their annual
homecoming game. Coming off a
week of rest, the Sharks have been
practicing in preparation for the.
District game which will probably.
determine the Sharks' fate in district
rankings this year. The Sharks have
one district win in the season, with
their 13-10 defeat of the Blountstown
Tigers two weeks ago. With Monti-
cello, Havana and Florida High still to
be faced in district play, Monticello
will probably be the Sharks' stiffest
The Tigers have a fine record this
season, just as the Sharks do. The
Tigers have lost to Pensacola Catholic
and tied Bainbridge, Georgia, for the
only smudges on their 1988 season.
The Sharks have lost only once, a
12-10 loss to 4-A Rutherford of Bay
Like the Sharks, the Tigers put up
a good defense. They are described as
being quick and aggressive. They
have given up very few points to
opponents, but neither have the

practically identical records meeting

lone tie to Bainbridge makes the only
difference on the record books.

Gulf Students to Join State In Taking SAT Nov. 5
Thousands of high school
students in Florida are ex-
pected to take the Scholastic
Aptitude Test (SAT) on Satur-
day, November 5, many of
them still unsure of the test's
role in college admissions.
Nearly half-a-million stu-
dents throughout the nation
will be tested that day, the
largest SAT administration
of the year.
In Florida, more than
91,000 students take the SAT
annually--nearly 10,000 in
To test general knowledge
of the SAT and clarify its use
in admissions, the College
Board, which sponsors the
SAT, has prepared a short
true-or-false quiz to help put
the test in perspective and
separate myths about the SAT
Are your No. 2 pencils
1. SAT scores can make or
break a student's academic fu-
False. By itself, the SAT
won't get a student into college
or keep. most students out.
That is because the SAT is one
of several factors that college
admissions officers consider
- in deciding who is admitted.
Before most colleges look
at. SAT scores, they look at
grades and evaluate the
strength of the student's aca-
demic program. Doing well in
tough academic courses is the
most important considera-
tion in -college admissions.
talents, and the college essay
are also important.
2. High school grades are
better than the SAT in pre-
dicting how well students will
do in college.
True. At most colleges,
high school grades are some-
what better than SAT scores
in predicting how well stu-
dents will do .in a particular
college. But the combination
of grades with scores produces
a better predictor than either
used alone. (At other colleges,
Achievement Tests are most
valuable in predicting perfor-
Combining grades and
SAT scores is useful because
grading practices differ
among the more than 25,000
high schools in the United
States and from teacher to
teacher, and because students
do not take the same courses
in high school. A standard ad-
missions test like the SAT
permits colleges to put the va-
riations in grading practices
and academic preparation of.
their applicants in perspec-
3.VFewer colleges are using
the SAT every year.
False. The number of col-
leges using the SAT is increas-
ing, not decreasing. More than
1,600 colleges use the SAT to-
day for admissions, and guid-
ance and -placement; that's
435 more than in 1978. Why?
Because the SAT is a univer-
sally recognized standard of
excellence against which a
student's readiness for college,
regardless of where they at-
tended high school can be
measured. It's a rigorous stan-
dard, but objective and fair.
.4. The best preparation for
the SAT is a coaching course.
False. Despite decades of
research, it is still not possi-
ble to predict ahead of time
who.will, or will not, improve
their scores--and by how
courses. For that reason, the
College Board does not recom-
mend coaching courses, espe-
cially if they cost a lot or re-
quire a lot of time and effort
that could be better spent on

:The best preparation for
the SAT is to follow a solid
program of challenging aca-
demic courses in school, to
read widely, to review mathe-
matical principles, and to be
familiar with the -SAT. Get-
ting a good night's sleep before
the test also makes sense.
5. The SAT is biased
against women and minpri-
False. As individuals.
women and minorities score
as high, and as low, as white
males. Average group scores,
however, do show a gap be-
tween most minorities and
whites and between women
and men. It is very simplistic
to blame differences in scores
on bias of the test. Women and
minorities who take the SAT
frequently have unequal edu-
cational, social and other
background experiences that
may be reflected in their per-
formance on the SAT and oth-
er standardized tests.
On average, for example,
women and minorities .are
less likely to have Bllowed an
academic or college prepara-:
tory program 'in high school.
Minorities take fewer years of
study in academic subjects,.
and women take fewer courses
in the sciences or advanced
mathematics. Women and mi-
nority test takers tend to have
parents with less formal edu-
cation--a factor often related
to lower scores.
6. The SAT keeps women
and minorities out of college.
False. In fact, more women
are attending college than
ever before: total enrollments
in higher education are 52
percent female and 48 percent
male--identical to the propor-
tion of women and men tak-
ing the SAT. More minorities
are also taking the SAT (up by
12 percent since 1973), and ap-
plying to and entering college.
7. It is very hard to get into
I False. Being accepted is the
norm, not the exception. Each
year high school students file
nearly 3.6 million applica-
tions to the nation's 1,779
four-year colleges and univer-
sities. According to survey
data from the American
Council on Education and the
University of California at
Los Angeles, 92 percent of stu-
dents end up at their first or
second choice college. And
more than 1,100 (36 percent)
of America's colleges are

A Little Imagination, Plus A Plot of Land
Can Produce An Abundant Harvest of Flower!
by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Everybody knows that vegetable
gardening is more popular today than
ever before. But, we usually discuss
this subject in the context of the
backyard garden. That 'isn't always
fair to the growing number of
Floridians who live in apartments,
condominiums, and mobile home
parks places where there's little or
no backyard to be had.
Just because you don't have a big
yard and lots of room, doesn't mean
you can't grow vegetables. In fact, the
home gardener who gets 'emotionally
invovled with a. strawberry barrel, or
a half-dozen tomato plants, probably
has more fUn than anyone else. My.
information on mini-gardening :was
provided by Extension Vegetable
Specialist Jim Stephens, of the.
University of Florida's Institute of
Foods and Agricultural Sciences. "
In addition to being an enjoyable
activity, mini-gardening can be
practical and ornamental. Containers
can fit almost anywhere in the.
landscape, or patios, porches, and
balconies, even on roof tops.
Depending on the types of vegeta-
bles you plan to grow, .. there's
practically no limit to the kinds, of
ROY LE CARTER
containers you use. Old pots and pans,.
milk jugs, hlollw concrete blocks,
bushel baskets, trash cans, barrels
and drums and even plastic bags have
all been- used. Just be sure the
container' will hold the soil in, and let
excess water drain out. -
.. Once you have a container and
have decided what to grow, it's time to
think about a growing medium. Of
course, you can plant. in, ordinary
garden soil or a prepared" soil mix.
But, with a container garden you also
can consider soil substitutes, things
like sawdust or wood shavings. If yod
plant in a lightweight soil substitute, it
will be easier to move the container,
should that become necessary..
A good choice is a growth medium
made of one bushel of vermiculite, a
bushel, of peat moss, one-and-a-quar-
ter cups of dolomite, and a cup of 8-8-8
fertilizer, with trace elements all
mixed thoroughly. Youd could also use
a bushel of sand or garden soil mixed
with a bushel of peat, cow manure,' or
well-decomposed compost. Either
way, you need the .dolomite and
fertilizer. These mixtures with plenty
of organic matter and some fertilizer
don't need extra fertilizer very often.
Every week or two should be
adequate. You can drench with a "'
fertilizer solution, or spread common
dry fertilizer on the soil surface and
water it throughly. into the ioot. zone.
Just don't apply too much, or you may'
Cause fertilizer burn.
If .you choose a more porous
Growth medium, such as sand or
gravel, which will dry out faster and'
won't hold nutrients very long you'll
need to water and fertilize more often.
Normally,; you should drench the
Instrumental Music In Worship
A message from Christ's Church.
By Otis Catrett
We are to worship in spirit, and in
truth. In John 4:24, "God is a spirit,
and they that -worship Him, must
worship Him, in spirit and in truth.".
Worship, "in spirit," is' to worship
sincerely, honestly, conscientiously,
believing it to be right. To worhsip,
"in truth," is to worship, as the
"truth," directs. (John 17:17) "Sanc--
tify them through thy truth, thy word
is truth." If, in our worship we do that
Which we do not believe, to be right, it .
is not, "in spirit,". If we do things in
the worship, which we do not: find
authorized, by the Lord, no matter
how honest or conscientious we may
be, it is not, "in truth," and becomes
vain worship, and is not, by the Lord
accepted. (Mark 7:7) "Howbeit, in
vain do they worship me, teaching for
doctrines, the commandments of'
men." Man is not a legislator for the
Lord. It is not the province of man,
tomake laws, for the Lord, nor, to
legislae, as to the way men shall
worship God. (Deuteronomy 4:2) Ye
shall not add unto the word which I
command you, neither shall ye
diminish; ought from it, that ye may
keep the commandments of the Lord
your God, .which I command you."
Instrumental music is not authorized
by Christ in worship, Christ did not
authorize the use of instrumental
music, inthe work and worship, of the
Church of Christ, and we must not
make additions to His teachings. See
(Galatians 1:8-9). In (Colossians 3:17)
"And whatsoever ye do in' word 'or
deed, do all in the name of the Lord
Jesus, giving thanks to God and the.
father by Him." "In the name of the
Lord Jesus" means,, by the authority.
of the Lord. People were baptized in
the "name of the Lord," (Acts 10:48)
that is, they were baptized by the
authority of the Lord. Our knowledge
of His authority, is found in the New
Testament. In Imatters of worship
then, He authorizes our words and' "In
word" is certainly what we say, what
we speak. In "deed" can be nothing
more than our acts. The things we do,
as contrasted, with what we speak,
Singing is our word, playing on an
instrument is our deed. But, we are to
say and do, by the authority of Christ.
'When we sing, it is by HIis authority;
-for we are commanded to sing.
Playing on an instrument is not
commanded, and we cannot, there-
fore, doitby His (Christ) authority, in
His name, and when one uses it in the
worship and work of the Church of
Christ, he breaks..the commandments
of the Lord, he sins.
Come, you are .invited, and,
welcomed, to study the Bible, and
worship with the church that Christ
died for, we meet at 20th St. and
Marvin Ave. Bible study is held at
10:00 am on the Lord's Day, and at
7:00 pm Wednesday. Worship service
is held at 11:00.am, and 7:00 pm on the
container 'with a fertilizer solution
once or twice a day as many as five
times a day, if its especially hot and
If you haven't tried your hand on
any form of vegetable gardening
before, .you may be wondering what
crop or crops do best in containers,
well, as I mentioned at the beginning,
and especially for the fall season,
strawberries, radishes, carrots, let-
tuce and most herbs.
