signed a much anticipated bill
creating Rural Areas of Critical

Lt. Gov. Frank Brogan and

Initiative and further explain what
it means to those counties includ-
ed.

the past several months. Many

that would pave the way for Gulf
County Shipbuilding and Port St.
Joe Boat Works and Dry Storage
to open their doors.
The commission wasted little
time unanimously approving the
application for the economic
development grant.
Diane Scholz. executive direc-
tor of the Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce. has been working
with John Dixson, president of
Nekton Cruise Dive Ships, for sev-
eral months as the company has
been, working out the details of
locating its dive cruise shipbuild-
ing plant along the Intracoastal
Waterway. approximately one
mile west of White City.
Dixson has been world ng with
the St. Joe Company to purchase
land for the company and has
recently cleared a 10 acre site for
that purpose and the county' had
gotten 'a road grant approved.
Things went awry when the com-
pany tried to deal with the Army
Corps of Engineers concerning ad
portion of the land being desig-
nated a dredge spoil site.
Dtxson and St. Joe Company
quickly resolved the matter by
looking at property at the "old
'Dynamite Dock" further down the
dirt road, but the change in plans
actually has turned into a positive
turn of events.
Dixson has expanded his
intention to include Port St. Joe
Boat Works and Dry Storage, Inc.
at the originally planned site. On
the loan application he projects
that the business would employ
30 people when in full operation.
As previously reported in The
Star, Gulf County Shipbuilding
will be constructing new dive
cruise, ships for Nekton and
expects to employ 61 people when
In operation.
This road grant application
will be one of the first tests for the
state's new Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern initiative
(reported in this edition of The
Star). Port St. Joe Boat Works and
Dry Storage, Inc. does not meet
the .strict interpretation of the
grant guidelines because it is not
a manufacturing plant. The .coun-
ty will be asking for a waiver of
that rule as it applies for the road
funds.
3-2 Vote to Change Meeting
Times
Commission Chairman Billy


Traylor brought up county com-
mission meeting times and'
expressed his opinion that the
time needs to be backed up to
6:00 p.m., ET.'
After much discussion on the.
question, Commissioner Warren
Yeager made a motion to move the
'time up to 6:00 pm., ET, from the
current 7:00 p.m. time. Commis-
sioner Tommy Knox seconded the
motion provided the time change
take place after the first of the
year.
The discussion centered
around inconvenience on the
.county staff and public when the
meetings were held at 7:00 versus
the fact that 6:00 ET time is 5:00
CT, and a concern that folks in
the north end of the county can't


'make it to the meetings in time.
Commissioners Knox and.
Yeager, and Chairman Traylor
supported the motion and
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr.
and John Stanley opposed.

Gulf Co. $Dollar$ A Great Gift Idea

Gulf County merchants' new Gulf County "Dollars" campaign is now officially underway.
The new dollars rolled off the pressesllast week and are now available at the branches of the
Wewahitchka State Bank. Once purchased they can be spent just like regular money.
The only major difference being that Gulf County SDollars can only be spent at the businesses of par-
ticipating Gulf County merchants. They are available in denominations up to 825 and will be excellent gift
ideas for Christmas, birthdays, weddings, showers, etc.
The program is intended to spur the local economy by encouraging and promoting shopping in Gulf
County. .i. "'"
Any Gulf County business wishing to participate in the program merely needs to pay a small fee to assist
with promoting the program. They should contact the Gulf County Chamber of.Commerce or the Port St.
Joe Merchants Association for further information.
Shop Till You Drop
To kick off the Gulf County SDollars campaign merchants are sponsoring a "Shop Till You Drop" con-
test. A first and second prize, of $250 and 8100 respectively, will be awarded In two
categories.

We Made A



Good Decision

Relinquishing Plant Could Have

Been Costly in More Ways Than One
THIS WEEK'S EDITORIAL IS MORE of a musing article than
anything else-musing over "what if', rather than approval or dis-
approval over a certain thing which has happened, or is about to
happen. This particular "what if" was spurred by last week's head-
lines, causing us to wonder what our position would be if a cer-
tain thing had happened.
We can see where the City of Port St. Joe could be in a worse
position than it presently isl It could easily be between the prover-
bial rock and the hard place if a cool set of heads hadn't prevailed.
As it is, we're; still sitting in the "cat-bird's ,seat", where we
could easily have been the source of some stiff fines with no way
to rid ourselves of some tough liabilities .' more than we could
easily get out of.
REMEMBER WHEN THERE WAS a move on to :encourage the
City to sell--or give-the ownership of the Wastewater Treatment
Plant to Florida Coast Paper Company?
"What if" we had?
Where would we be now? Would we even have a means of
treating our wastewater?. Would we have a place to send our
sewer? Would we -be able to answer the hard questions about our
sanitary future'in. such a manner to satisfy the Environmental
Protection Agency? .
Port St. Joe has a lot of money owed to it because of non-pay-
ment for use of the WWTP, but where would we be if we had sold,
or given the plant away as we were surely urged to do?
For once, we lucked out.
SWE -HOPE EVERYONE REMEMBERS this little exercise for
what it has taught us. The Wastewater Treatment Plant would
now be bankrupt, too. It might not be operating, now. As it is, the
customer-in this case. Florida Coast Paper Company-owes us a
lot of money, but we still have the valuable plant and it's still oper-
ating. -
: That plant is all-important to us. now, with a possibility that
we may have to depend upon our beach community for our liveli-
hood in the future. Actually, Gulf County couldn't replace the-
treatment plant if it pooled all its assets. Even Bay County, with
all its people, is having a struggle making a plant similar to Port
St. Joe's a reality..
-It's well that Port St.. Joe hung on to this one!


Crack in the Resolve

THE CURRENT ISSUE OF NEWSWEEK magazine tells of the
European nations undermining the United States in its resolve to
keep drug use and sales criminal. Some nations in Europe are
considering making the sale and use of drugs-especially "soft"
drugs, such as marijuana-legal.
This flies in the face of the United States, undermining its
efforts to eradicate the use of the substances. The resistance by
the United States to the various drugs is beginning to pay bene-
fits. Records show that use by its citizens is beginning to taper off
ever so slightly. Some of the European nations are still adamant
against the use of drugs and still assess stiff penalties for posses-
sion, but some nations, such as Belgium and Sweden, are moving
toward forgiving possession of, 'especially "sqft" drtigs, in an ,
amount which would indicate that it is a personal stash.
OTHER NATIONS, SUCH AS TURKEY, make a federal case
,out of possessioli of-any amount, meting out stiff jail senteines.
But the stiff wall against the-possession of drugs is beginning "
to crack. across the ocean. Hopefully, the European nations will ;
remain firm against the illegal substances, as they have in the
past. Comparing drugs,,o tobacco, to the use and sale of alcoholic
beverages for tax income, health debilitators, or destroyers of the
,future is asinine. It doesn't make drugs any more acceptable than
they presently'are :.. nor, alcohol or tobacco, either! -
Each substance'is bad for a person's health and well-being: r
Comparing one with another doesn't add to the credibility of
either, nor make them acceptablepto 'society.' : -,

My satsumas are beginning

Their numbers are "legion"

of being almost non-existent.
Two years ago, I trimmed the tree
pretty drastically and it didn't '

this year. .

to those counties included in the
designation.
"We're convinced the best
days for this part of the state of
Florida are yet to come," Brogan
said, as he flashed around an,
executive order from Governor
Bush declaring the designation.
Rep. Kilmer told the group
that she was committed to the
task of economic development.
and'had been granted her request,
to be placed on the Business
Development and International
Trade Committee so she could
more actively pursue those goals.
S.Senator Pat Thomas also:
reacted favorably to the
announcement.
"I am so pleased that the gov-
ernor and lieutenant governor
have again recognized the difficul-
ties faced by the smaller counties
of North Florida in bringing eco-
nomic development to our com-
munities," said Thomas.
."We have struggled for years
with problems that are incompre-
hensible to larger counties with
larger tax bases and more readily
available resources. We have
struggled with everything from
infrastructure needs to workforce
availability.
"With all of the current focus
on workforce development, it is
refreshing to know that the
administration has recognized the
need to assist us with- providing;.
.., ready jobs for our newly. trained,.
citizens. I look forward to working
with the governor, his staff, and
local communities to put this des-
ignation to its best possible use."
Thomas concluded.

Tip on Feeding Young Children


By Sheila Hinton, Family
and Consumer Sciences Exten-
sion Agent
Well-nourished children are
more likely to reach their genetic
potential for physical and mental
development. Nutritional needs as
well as Important sources of sen-
sory and social experiences are
met by food.

should be pleasant and suited to
the abilities, size and comfort of
the children. It is desirable to
serve meals and snacks at about
the same time each day. This
helps children develop a sense of
security regarding provision of
their food needs. Offering five or
six small meals and snacks are
usually better than a strict regi-
men of only three larger meals a
day. If a new food is refused, it
should be offered again a few days

later. Familiarity with food
enhances its acceptance by the
child.
Children should have ample
opportunity for physical activity
and exercise, preferably out of
doors. This will tend to promote a
healthy appetite and prevent obe-
sity. Adequate sleep and periods
of quiet and rest are important to
the child's health and nutrition. It
is difficult for a physically tired
child to enjoy eating.
Parents and caregivers are
responsible for offering a varied
and balanced diet, while allowing
the child to develop his or her own
inner sense of security and
appetite control. Either too much
or too little external control of the
child's eating may be harmful. It


is common for a young child to
periodically have a decreased
appetite and to eat less food. This
is accounted for by slower growth
rate and less urgent demand for
nutrients. During the preschool
period, children develop greater
mobility and strive to be increas-
.Ingly independent in all types of
behavior including feeding.
Put these youngsters in
charge of preparing simple food
items for snacks and meals. The
next time they are in, a hurry for'
breakfast, have them whip :up
applesauce toast.

Claim Raffield / Whitfield Gulf County Trophy After Nip-and


Port St. Joe and county/dis-,
trict rival Wewahitchka battled it
out in Friday night's gridiron
action for the Raffleld/Whitfleld.
Gulf County trophy, and a chance,
to make it to the state playoffs.
The Gators needed a win and
for Liberty County to beat,
Blountstown, which would have
put Port St. Joe, Blountstown and'c
Wewahitchka in a three-way tie
for second place causing a playoffO
for second.
The Sharks and the Gators"
made the big defensive plays
when they needed to throughout
the night, but the Sharks did-
manage to reach the endzone
once for a 6-0 victory. After Justin
Miller's punt rolled dead on the
Wewahitchka 47 yard line. the
Sharks went to the air with only


Jones for a six yard loss to force
the Gators to punt out of their
own endzone. Miller's punt took a-
big Gator bounce and rolled dead
on the Sharks' 39 yard line-57
yard punt.
The Sharks started off anoth-
er, what looked, to be a promising
drive-but this time Harold
Williams' made the big defensive
play for the Gators, recovering a
Jeffcoat fumble on the Wewa-
hitchka 49 yard line with 2:47 left
in the first quarter.
The Gators took over 'on,
offense and drove down to the
Sharks' 30 yard line with the help
of seven yard runs from Harold
Williams and Myron Vann. With
fourth and four from the 30,
Brandon Jones' pass attempt to
Bradley Shavers fell incomplete


then" threw a pass to Dexter Gant
in the endzone, but Wewahitch-
ka's P. J. Addison had position to
come down with the football for
the interception.
An offensive pass interference
call against the Sharks on the
interception gave the Gators the
ball with a first and 10 from their
own 35 yard line. Vann took the
hand off on the first play from
scrimmage and picked up 15
yards to the 50 yard: line.
On the next play, Addison
gained eight yards on a reverse
and 15 more yards were tacked on
the end of the run with a person-
al foul penalty against the Sharks.
The Gators were faced with a sec-
ond and 19 situation after Ryan
Stephens and Koran Peters took
down Vann in the Gators' back

Several Sharks hoist the coveted Raffleld/Whitfleld Gulf County trophy following Friday night's 6-0 victory in the continuing
Port St. Joe Sharks versus Wewahitchka Gators rivalry. On hand for the game, and to congratulate the team afterwards, was Gene
Raffield [hidden among the Shark frenzy] who was involved in initiating the "county championship" years ago as a school board
member. ,'c


:43.9 seconds left in, the third
quarter of play. ..
Quarterback Brett Jeffcoat
hooked up with Dexter Gant and
Seneca Chambers on back-to-.
back hitch routes, both for ,16
-yard gains. A pass Interference
call against the Gators on the
ensuing play moved the ball down
to the seven yard line for, the
Sharks. ;
With fourth and goal from the
two and .a half yard line, quarter-
back Seneca Chambers scooted
around, the right side on the
option for a touchdown. Jarred
Lambert's extra point try was wide.
right, but the Sharks led 6-0 with
10:55 remaining in the game.
"This was definitely one of'
those county rivalry games," said
PSJ head coach Chuck Gannon.'
"Both teams played extremely,
hard. Wewa played real hard-
they're a good squad."
"It was a hard fought game
both ways," said Wewa head
.coach Grant Grantham. "I'm
extremely proud of our kids. St.
Joe just came up with the big
plays when they needed it."
The Gators received the open-
ing kickoff of the game and went
three and out on its first offensive
possession punting the ball over
to the Sharks.
Seneca Chambers returned
Miller's punt five yards to the',
Gators' 45 yard line. Chambers'
and Gant teamed up on the
Sharks" first offensive play of the:
night on a 31 yard pass play to
put the Sharks in the red zone
(inside the 20 yard line).
However, three plays later, on'1
third and seven from-the 11 yard "
line. Chambers stepped up in the' I.
pocket and tried to gain some'
yards through the middle of the
Gators' defensive line-the ball'
came flying out and Joe Green fell'-
on the ball for the Gators on their
own five yard line to keep the
Sharks out of the endzone. ,
The Gators again went three
and out-with third and five from
the 10 yard line, Port St. Joe's
Koran Peters sacked Brandon


and Port 'St. Joe took over on
downs. .'
After being penalized 15 yards
for a offensive face mask penalty,
with first and 26, Ryan Stephens
broke 'loose for a .52 yard scam-
per-15 more yards were tacked
on to the end of the run for a face
mask penalty against the Gators.
With third and eight from the
Wewahitchka 18 yard line,
Chambers' pass to the corner of
the endzbne squeaked through
the stretched out hands of Gant.
Jarred Lambert attempted a 35
yard field goal on fourth down,
but missed wide left with 9:14
remaining in the firsthalfof play.
The Sharks threatened again
;on their first possession of the
second half. With second and 18
from the Sharks' 19 yard line,
Chambers hooked up with Gant
on a slant route for a 34 yard pick
up to move the Sharks into Gator
territory. Chambers connected
with Gant on third and five on
another slant for an eight .yard.
gain and a Port St. Joe first down.
vTwo plays later, on a busted
play. Chambers scrambled out of
the pocket and picked up 22
yards down to the 10 yard line.
The Gators' defense stepped
up again, on third and goal from
the five yard line. Myron Vann
chased Chambers' out of the pock-
et and sacked him for a seven
yard loss forcing the Sharks to try
for another field goal. Lambert
missed this time, wide right from
29 yards out, and the Gators took
over on downs on the 20 yard line
with 4:24 left in the third quarter.
The Gators picked up a quick
first down with a four yard run by
Myron Vann and a nine yard run
by P. J. Addison. However, three
plays later on third and five, the
Gators were penalized for clip-
ping, which backed them up to
their own 20 yard line and were
forced to punt after not converting
on third and 24.
Port St. Joe then put the only
points of the game on the score
board with Chambers' run with
10:55 left in the game.
The Sharks got the ball right
back-Vann returned the ensuing
kick-off 25 yards before coughing
It up. Jeffcoat recovered the foot-
ball for 'the Sharks on the
Wewahitchka 34 yard line. A per-
sonal foul 'penalty against the
Gators on the first play movedthe
ball down to the 18 yard line.
bOn second and six, Chambers
tried to connect with Gant on a
hitch, but the incomplete pass
was ruled a lateral and the Sharks
lost 12 yards on the play. After a
delay of game penalty against the
Sharks, quarterback Brett
Jeffcoat dumped the ball off to
Ryan Stephens 'on a middle
screen for an 11 yard gain. -
With fourth and 12 from the
20 yard line, Jeffcoat lateralled
the ball out to, Chambers at the
wide receiver position-Chambers


field for a four yard loss and a
delay of game penalty.
Quarterback Brandon Jones
connected with Vann. out of the
back field for a 13 yard gain, and
a. face mask penalty against the
Sharks moved the ball down to
the 13 yard line. On fourth and
two from the five yard line and
down by six points, Addison took
the hand-off on, the reverse and
was stopped for a two yard loss by
Port St. Joe's Koran Peters.
The Gators got the ball back
one more time with,3:29 left in the
game, but couldn't convert on
.fourth and 11 from the Sharks' 37
yard line. Jones was flushed out
of .the pocket by Stephens and
Lamar Patterson made the stop
after a two yard gain to turn the
ball over to the Sharks on downs.
"Hopefully our kids will show
a lot of character this week, and
we can go out with a 7-3 record,"
concluded Coach Grantham.'
Chambers made two good
runs, a five yard 'run where he.
changed directions and a nine
yard run. on the Sharks' last pos-
session to give Port St. Joe a first
down where they could down the
ball and run out the clock.
"We'shut down their running

Mexico Beach Bed Tax Revenue Increases 37%


The accommodations indus-
try of Mexico Beach finished its
fiscal year 1998-99 with a strong
lead over the 1998 year. Septem-
ber 1999 bed tax revenue collec-
tions, which were up an impres-
sive 37.03 percent over Septem-
ber 1998, brought the year to a
strong conclusion with an overall
9.88 percent increase over 1998.
Total revenues collected were
$131,422; an excess of over
$15,000 of the allowable tax rev-
enues budgeted for the same year.
"We were up every month
except August," states J. Patrick
Howard, president of the Mexico
Beach Community Development
Council, Inc. (MBCDC).
August 1999 figures took a


21.57 percent dip from August
1998's revenues.
"Several contributing factors
were at play this year in August,"
Howard explains, "An unusually
strong August 1998 calendar pay
period differentiation (when and
how many pay periods fall in a
month) and some abuse by
Mother Nature didn't help the
month. "Despite August figures,
overall bed tax collections, expo-
sure and the general economic
stance of Mexico Beach, all
enjoyed a year of tremendous suc-
cess," he added.
Mexico Beach's success can
in part be attributed to the collage
of events and promotions that the


MBCDC and its subsidiary orga-
nizations have engaged in .
throughout the 1998-99 year.
Initialization began in late'
1998 with the publishing of
Mexico Beach's full color, 40-page
visitor's guide, extensive website,
acquired management and
revamping of Mexico Beach's local
channel and re-introduction of an
organized and comprehensive.
schedule of events for the commu-'
nity.

Ling Tournament & Festival In
late April, continued sponsorship'
of an already exquisite Fourth of

It was like another homecom-
ing at Wewahitchka Junior/
Senior High School last week.
Interest and activity were very
high in anticipation of one of 'the
most important football games in
recent memory.
After pep rallies, announce-
ments, and banners galore, WHS
came up just a little short and!lost
to PSJ 6-0. However, the quality
of play and the school spirit
demonstrated throughout 'the
game and week underscored an
important reminder: Gators are
winners!
Winning is an,attitude; it is a
product of preparation; and it is a
response of wholesomeness and
learning when we fall short of our
goals. These 'are qualities that
bear fruit' h high school sports
and also later in life. From these
perspectives we have a lot to be
proud of at WHS.
Speaking of winning, the
cross country team continues to
impress: The team finished fourth
in our district, and the runners
are on track to reach their team
goal: to make it to state!
Tiffany Matthews was recog-
nized as our "Junior High Student
of the Week." Well done, Tiffany.


Our second TGIF was very
successful. Students were pre-
sented information on ways to
resolve'conflicts in peaceful Ways.
Asa result of students'-resp6nses,'
we are, pointing to a peei media-
tion program.
We 'thank the many parent
and community volunteers who
made this day possible and go
smoothly. And we thank our great
student body for their eoopera-,
tion. TGIF could not take place at
too many schools-if any. By the
way, for next, month's TGIF we
hope to catch some of.our student
talent on the singing stage.
Plans are under way for acad-
emic teams. Odyssey of the Mind
(OM) has been established for the
junior high and high school stu-
dents may be traveling to
Gainesville to compete in an aca-
demic bowl in December.
S Our choir and 'drama class
are preparing for holiday pro-
grams. We are about to Initiate a
TSE chapter-a technology clubs
for students. These are just exam-
pies of the growing opportunities
for our students. These are also
examples of why I say "Gators are
Winners!"

that, the middle school is compet-,
ing with the high school in a very
special contest.
This competition is all about
spirit! The high school has chal-
lenged us to making a chain-a"
spirit chain that is. They think'
they can make a chain longer
than ,us, proving they have more
spirit.
We say NO WAY!
,So, the SGA Is selling 5c links
to the chain with the buyer's
name written on it. Our chain will
be joined and compared to the

PSJMS, buy a link and help us
make chain!l :
AJso, at the game, Friday be

middle school representatives.
They are our homecoming atten-
dants Kale Guillot and Molly;
Garrett. Congrats!
Speaking of halftiine at the'
game, that's when the "Beta
Beans for Brains" winner will be
announced. So, if you don't have'-

Attention Deficit Hyperactivi-'
ty Disorder (ADHD) is a biological-'.
ly based behavioral disorder that,
affects 'between three andgxqpoer-
cent' ,of.,elexentgpry.-,school stne
dents m this country. .. ,
Children diagnosed with
ADHD exhibit excessive and/or,
inappropriate overactivity, inat-
tentiveness or impulsiveness for a
period of more jhan six months. A
child with ADHD may exhibit all
of these traits or any combination
of them. ..
It is difficult to describe a typt-
ical profile of a student with
ADHD since each child may have
a different combination of a range
of symptoms. Generally, childrerr
with ADHD are unable to sit still
for extended periods or. are unable,
to concentrate or pay attention.:,.
i ADHD students often -fail to
complete homework, attend, poor;
ly to classroomR instruction, may
write.illegibly, and frequentlypro-
yoke.others.physically.
Often the child suffers from ,a
loss-of self-esteem because his :dr
her inability to engage in normal
classr-oom and playground activi-
ties. This can result in a feeling of
loneliness and the ADHD child
may find classmates shun the
uncontrolled behaviors. ,,
Most children, with ADHD1
exhibit their, behaviors., in the-
classroom, which can lead to dif-
ficulties in their* schoolwork and.
interpersonal 'relationships..
Effective treatment is available for
children with ADHD,"' and carl
enhance their ability' to niake'
friends and to listefi and attend in'
school,'during a time in their lives
when learning is so'vital.- ,
ADHD is a serious and 'legit,-'
mate disorder that warrants spe-
cial attention and management
Understanding the symptoms sf
the disorder can improve the
child's self-concept, social skills
and ability to participate in the
classroom. .
In order to determine an
accurate ADHD diagnosis, tlfe
assessment process should
involve parents and professionals
who are able to combine anecdd-
tal information with 'educational,
psychological, and medical
assessments across a variety' 6f
settings and over a period of time.
This process may include '.a
pediatrician, teachers, a child
psychiatrist, a pediatric neurolo-
gist, school' guidance counselor,
and the, parents 6f the child.
Continued research" into the bi'-
logical markers fo? ADHD may
lead to more efficient diagnostic
tools for physicians in the future.
However, until that.time it is
of paramount importance that
schools, .physicians, and parents
work: collaboratively to providee
ADHD .children with the network
of support necessary for their
success.

MEDITATIONS OF A


By.LOWELL F. ADAMS

Priests Unto God
To whom do. .
Christians look when
they need a priest?



N Old Testament Bible times, the priest was
important person.; The priest served as the
sinner's representative before God. The priest first
killed an innocent lamb, and made a blood sacrifice
for his owl sins, and then offered a blood sacrifice
for the other person's pennance.
Jesus came into the world and changed that.,
The Scripture tells us in Hebrews 8:13 and 12:24
that Jesus introduced a New Covenant. He was and
is God's Perfect Sacrificial Lamb, and He gave His
own blood as a sacrifice for the sins of all who'
wbild accept that Truth.
Np longer, do people have to have a priest to
approach God, for them, because Jesus, God's Son
has opened the "Way" to God for us all. Jesus is
that Way (John 14:6). Any Christian can talk
directly to God, our Heavenly Father, in prayer. I, as
do multitudes of other Christians, do it every day.
And God talks to those who pray by answering their
requests.'
Not only. do we not need a priest, other than
Jesus, God's children have been made priests'
themselves. Revelation 1:6 Tells us "Jesus has
washed us from our sins in His own blood, and
made us kings and priests unto God, the Father."
Many hundreds of years before Jesus was born,
the prophet in Psalms says of Him, "The Lord hath
swom ... thouart a priest forever."
This 110th Psalm, inr announcing the eternal
priesthood of Jesus the Messiah, is probably one of
,the most importantC statements of the entire
Scripture. Jesus continually talks to God for us.:
None of us will ever see God the Heavenly
Father, unless we accept Jesus as our Lord and
Saviour. He declares in John 14:6, "I am the Way,
the Truth, and the Life. No one cometh unto the
Father, but 4 me."

Church


Growth

In Acts 12:24 we find, "But-
the word of God grew and multi-
plied." The church needs a posi-
tive witness in today's world.
Oliver F. Taylor Negativism creeps into our
Visitation Minister, First lives and we sometimes feel the',
United MethodistChurch church is losing ground. The
devil wants us to believe this. The secular world is
against the church.
Recently, a state governor referred to the church and'
organized religion as being only a sham for weak people.:-
As Christians we need to be positive toward the church.,
Individuals may falter and slip backward. The church
belongs to God who sent His Son into the world that all
may know salvation through Christ.
The word of God' will continue, to grow and multiply.:'
God wants us to be a part of this. The devil 'wants us to,
be bogged with negatives. Christ invites us to be a part
of His victorious church. We need to choose who weiwill
stand with: the devil or the Christ.
