About 100 people gathered
this week to hear US Senator
Bill Nelson talk about what's
going on in Washington and
for Nelson to field citizens'
questions.
City Hall was packed Feb.
28 with those from all walks
of life who came to visit with
Sen. Nelson, but by far, those


with an interest in how the
federal government effects
their jobs were the most
prominent in attendance.
Nelson said the most im-
portant issue at the moment
is Iraq. He noted he had just
heard about 100 people being
killed in an insurgent attack
in Iraq and did not yet know
if any Americans were in-
volved. Nelson said a US

Antibiotics Really Are Different Than Other Drugs
Correcting misconceptions about antibiotics and how they should be used
is a difficult task. Commonly, we think of them like other drugs. They are
not. For instance, pain medication can be considered "mild" or "strong"
depending on the type or the dose. Antibiotics are VERY different. An
antibiotic is the key that fits into a specific lock designed to kill a specific
bacteria. If the antibiotic does not fit, it is not "weak". It merely does not kill
that bacteria. Some antibiotics are thought of as being "strong", meaning
that their keys fit many more locks and kill many more types of bacteria.
However, antibiotics considered "strong" have infections they will not treat.
When it comes to treating infections, the most important decision is not to
pick the strongest antibiotic. The goal is to pick the antibiotic most likely to
kill and clear the bacteria causing your infection. A sinus infection is
typically caused by different organisms than a skin infection, and so on.
Keep in mind that the common cold and many other infections are viral.
Antibiotics will not treat a viral infection. The next time you are prescribed
an antibiotic, remember the "strongest" is not necessarily the best. Talk to
your doctor and pharmacist if you have additional questions.

the groundwater and could
cost the county as much as
$67,000 just for the testing.
TAK Environmental Ser-
vices was contacted by DEP
to handle the testing. The
company also removed the
tanks after they were discov-
ered buried beneath the
ground behind the courthouse
after the old jail and library
were removed.
Representatives of TAK
told commissioners DEP
wants to know if anything has
leaked into the aquifer. The
representative said he didn't
,think it had, but would do the
testing. He gave the county an


estimated price of $67,000 but
said it might not cost that
much. A deadline of April 15
was given by DEP to get the
results of the testing that will
include two test wells, borings
that will go into the bedrock.
"Basically, you are at the
mercy of DEP," County Coor-
dinator Johnny Wooley told
the board.
Commission Chairman Bil-
ly Maxwell said he just does-
n't understand how anyone
can get so concerned about
possible contamination with
all the other factors involved.
"We have 45 foot holes all
over town to take gas, water
and sludge away so why get
upset over this?" Maxwell got


no answer to his question re-
garding what most officials
call "go-away holes" that al-
low all types of water to go
into holes deep into the earth.
The board was advised it
must comply with DEP's di-
rections or fight them and
lose. If the testing shows con-
tamination, then the real ques-
tions begin as to who will pay
and where the contamination
really came from, the county
or private industry that operat-
ed in the area before Florida
ever thought about environ-
mental protection.

The Florida Legislature will
convene March 8 for its 60-day
regular session to create the
,state's 2005-2006 budget.
Elaine Robinson, executive
manager for the Board of
Suwannee County Commnis-
sioners, said the IFAS center
could use some work. "It's just
not big enough, it's rundown, it
needs a lot of repairs," Robin-
son said.
If the state does not fund the
project, "I would imagine we
.would try to find some other
grant that might cover it,"


Robinson said. But, she said,
the county does not have
enough money to "move for-
ward" with the IFAS training
center project.
IFAS is a federal-state-coun-
ty partnership with the Univer-
sity of Florida, providing agri-
cultural education to Florida
residents in rural areas.
As for other projects on the
county's wish list, the develop-
ment of Baker Park is long
overdue, said project specialist
for the City of Live Oak Shan-
non Court.
"The play areas that are there
now - it's not that they're un-
safe," Court said, "it's just that
they are not really adequate for
the area, and they are quite out-
dated."
The Baker Park project
would include a new play-
ground and a pavilion. Court
said the park would be ideal for
community meetings and other
events.
Money from the state would


be the city's only hope for re-.
vamping the park, Court said.
The park is located in the
Maynor Manor subdivision.
If the county doesn't get the
money, "we won't be able to
fund it," Court said. "We won't
be able to build it this year, be-
cause our budget does not have
enough money."
The legislators sponsoring
these requests - state Sen. Nan-
cy Argenziano, R-Crystal River,
and state Rep. Dwight Stansel,
D-Wellborn - could not be
reached for comment prior to
deadline.

Hello everyone: I am the training and safety
officer for the Live Oak Fire Department. Each
month I am going to write about fire safety in
the home, outside. the home and sometimes at
the work place.
This month is about fire safety in the home.
Simple ways common electrical hazards can
be reduced or eliminated:
* Avoid the "electrical octopus." Eliminate
tangles of electrical cords. Don't overload elec-,
trical outlets. Don't plug power strips into other,
power strips.
* Don't run electric cords under carpets.
* Replace broken or frayed cords immediately.

came together Feb. 24 to celebrate the success and rec-
ognize and thank the many volunteers who ensured the
campaign was successful. United Way campaign results
for 2004-2005 is projected to total $623,000. Add to this
the community impact grant funds resulting from 2004
efforts, which total $645,305 and United Way has a com-
munity impact total of $1,268,305. (Below) Every, year,
PCS Phosphate of White Springs provides incredible
support to the community in many ways, one of which is
an outstanding United Way campaign organized and con-
ducted by their own campaign team. On display at the
2005 United Way Annual Meeting and Banquet, Feb. 24
was a "check" representing the amount of the PCS cam-
paign ($148,660). 2005-2006 United Way of Suwannee

OPINION


By Charlie Crist,
Florida Attorney General
On November 22, 2004, wor-
shipers gathered at St. Anthony's
parish in Ft. Lauderdale to prac-
tice their faith. The morning ser-
vice was a part of their normal
routine, but this morning would
turn out to be anything but nor-
mal.
As the Mass was about to be-
gin, masked intruders burst in,
robbed the parishioners at gun-
point and stole not only their
possessions but their sense of se-


curity. What kind of morally bankrupt individual would
choose to single out people of faith to be crime victims? The
answer is: the worst kind.
Robbery is a crime that needs to be prosecuted no matter
where it takes place, but there is an extra sense of vulnera-
bility among those who visit their church, synagogue,
mosque, temple or other place of worship. Just as in our
homes, we expect to be safe in our places of worship, and the
law should work to ensure that safety.
While we are all potential victims of crime in our homes or
in our cars, Florida law carries no stiffer penalty for crimes
committed in a place that many Floridians view just as per-
sonally, their place of worship.The law provided special pro-
tections against carjacking or home invasion robbery, but not
for robberies committed in a place that should be a sanctuary
from crime. Fortunately, thanks to the leadership of Repre-
sentatives Tim Ryan and Jack Seiler, as well as Senator Jeff
Atwater, we have an opportunity to create the same stiff
penalties for crimes occurring in our places of worship as
those that apply to crimes involvingour homes and vehicles.
I am pleased to be working with these members of the
Florida Legislature on a "Worship Safety Act" that will bet-
ter protect our citizens. This new law would enhance penal-
ties for offenses ;har in ol\e the use OT threat of physical
force or \, olence ift" those crimes are co.n'mitted in places of
worship. Stiffer penalties should make criminals think twice
about violating the sanctity of our churches, synagogues,
temples and mosques.
There is a need for this legislation, and it was put best by
St. Anthony priest Father Jerry Singleton when he told the
South Florida Sun-Sentinel that "It's a message that in a so-
ciety, even a crime-ridden one, there are still some things
that should be considered sacred."
Floridians have the fundamental right to worship without
fear. Let us further solidify that right by supporting this
measure.

GUEST COMMENTARY

Alliance for Excellent Education

provides snapshot of how well

Florida's high schools are doing
The Alliance for Excellent Education is providing a statis-
tical snapshot of the status of Florida's high schools to Gov.
Jeb Bush in anticipation of the National Governors Associa-
tion's National Education Summit on High Schools in Wash-
ington, D.C. (Feb. 26-27).
The snapshot is offered as a reference to essential statistics
about high schools in Florida. Data includes funding, teach-
ers' salaries, graduation rates, college readiness and academ-
ic achievement. Statewide numbers are compared to the na-
tional average and include national rankings where applica-
ble.
"The NGA, Achieve and Gov. Bush are to be commended
for taking on the critical issue of transforming the nation's
high schools," says Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for,
Excellent Education and the former governor of West Vir-
ginia. "With one-third of our students not graduating, and an-
other third graduating unprepared for college, it is very im-
portant that the states are recognizing their ability and re-
sponsibility to make sure that every child is a graduate pre-
pared for success. The Alliance for Excellent Education
looks forward to working with the Governor to improve the
quality of high school education in Florida."
Among the available statistics compiled by the Alliance,
Florida:
* ranks 45th in the nation for number of students receiving
a high school diploma (59 percent compared to the national
average of 71 percent)
* graduates 67 percent of white students, 50 percent of His-
panic students, and 49 percent of black students
* scores 32 percent of eighth grade students reading below
basic level (compared to the national average of 28 percent)
According to Wise, "There are successful high schools in
Florida that are overcoming substantial obstacles. The goal
now is to make sure every student in Florida receives an ex-
cellent education."
The Alliance for Excellent Education is a Washington-
based policy, research, and advocacy organization that works
to make every child a graduate, prepared for postsecondary
education, and success in life. It is funded by the Leeds Fam-
ily, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Carnegie Corpora-
tion of New York, and the New York Community Trust, as
well as by concerned individuals.

Social Security deceit

salvation in the midst of the earth."
--Psalm 74:12

In a later decision, Flemming v.
Nestor (1960), the court said, "To en-
graft upon Social Security system a
concept of 'accrued property rights'
would deprive it of the flexibility and
boldness in adjustment to ever-chang-
ing conditions which it demands ... "
That flexibility and boldness mean
Congress can constitutionally cut ben-
efits, raise retirement age, raise Social
Security taxes and do anything it wish-
es, including eliminating payments.
If a private retirement company re-


President Bush's call to allow Amer-
icans to take a portion of the money ..
they pay as Social Security taxes to set
up private retirement accounts has to be 1�
a good idea. Why? The more of what a
person earns that's in his pocket and
under his control, the better off he will
be. At a later date, when the details of
the president's plans are known, I'll ad-
dress the various reform plans under 2
debate. For now, let's look at some of BY WALTE
the gross political deceit, lies and un-
kept promises that have become a part
of Social Security.
Here's what a 1936 government Social Security pamphlet said:
"After the first 3 years - that is to say, beginning in 1940 - you
will pay, and your employer will pay, 1.5 cents for each dollar you
earn, up to $3,000 a year. ... Beginning in 1943, you will pay 2
cents, and so will your employer, for every dollar you earn for the
next 3 years.... And finally, beginning in 1949, twelve years from
now, you and your employer will each pay 3 cents on each dollar
you earn, up to $3,000 a year. ... That is the most you will ever
pay."
Had Congress lived up to those promises, where $3,000 was the
maximum earnings subject to Social Security tax, controlling for
inflation, today's $50,000-a-year wage eamer would pay about
$700 in Social Security taxes, as opposed to the more than $3,000
that he pays today.
The next big lie is from the same Social Security pamphlet:
"Beginning November 24, 1936, the United States government
will set up a Social Security account for you..... The checks will
come to you as a right." First, there's no Social Security account
containing your money, but more importantly, the U.S. Supreme
Court has ruled on two occasions that Americans have no legal
right to Social Security payments.
In Helvering v. Davis (1937), the court held that Social Securi-
ty was not an insurance program, saying, "The proceeds of both
(employee and employer) taxes are to be paid into the, Treasury
like internal-revenue taxes generally, and are not earmarked in
any way."


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor
The recent decision to retain the book, "Mommy Laid an Egg"
on the shelves of the Suwannee River Regional Library is an ugly
stain on our community and its standards. Any person of sense and
decency who has seen the book would understand why this is
so. This book should not be on shelves which are easily accessible
to young children, but instead should be placed in a location where
only a parent or person over 18 can ask for it.
It is disappointing that in a socially conservative and largely
Christian county that a review board would reach such a conclu-
sioi. It wouldni'tsurprise me if this occurred rin Orange, Alachua or
Broward Counties, butttb happen here' in this county seems un-,
thinkable. Apparently we are attempting to keep up with "big city"
standards. The ironic part of this is that many of us have relocated
here because we were sick of "big city" standards and thought we
had found a more family friendly place to live.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Susan Perez
Live Oak

Dear Editor:
Congrats to the Suwannee High Football players for banding to-
gether for what they believe is a total political wrong doing.
Why bring in an outside coach when you have what appears to
be a coach that the players know and most of all respect right there
in Live Oak. Talk about backwards/backwoods living.
Why destroy the desire of these kids to play the sport they love
just to satisfy a selfish superintendent. Shame on you.

Sincerely,
Linda Green
Gainesville

Dear Editor.
Your Feb. 25 issue of the Democrat has some pretty bold words
from the high school football players and in very bold letters as
well. "We won't play for new coach!!" I wonder if they really
mean it. I wonder if they are sincere enough to (a) pass up being
viewed by any college scouts as long as they remain in school with
the new coach and (b) really sit in the stands and allow other play-
ers who may not have been otherwise able to take the field play in
their places. I don't really think so. Even though the photo of the
petition is not crystal clear, many of the names are legible. This will
be interesting to compare with the first football program listing
players in the next season; This may well be an opportunity for a
bunch of boys to learn a man's commitment - you buy the ticket,
you take the ride. By the way., I imagine that when they wrote "We
feel" in the second paragraph of the petition they meant that they
"think" or that they "believe" since "we feel" indicates an emotion,
as in "we feel angry"or "we feel betrayed." Perhaps a season of sit-
ting in the stands will provide an opportunity to learn to avoid im-
precise speech and/or writing.

Lewis L. Lange
Live Oak


Dear Editor,
I am writing in response to the article printed on Feb. 25
concerning the Suwannee High School football players and the
hiring of a new coach. While I am truly disappointed in the de-
cision made by our superintendent, Walter Boatright, I respect
the fact that he has the authority to overrule the selection com-
mittee's top choice and make a decision to go outside of the ex-
isting coaching staff to hire a new football coach.
The Suwannee County football program has a tradition of
excellence and pride. Anyone that has ever been a part of the
football team understands ho%% important it is to be dedicated,
loyal and committed to that program. The loyalty and commit-
ment shown by the Suwannee Bulldogs is commendable. You
are truly team players, and I appreciate your support and en-
couragement throughout this process.
Sometimes, being a team player also means putting your
own desires to the side and doing what is best for the rest of
the team.
While I would have loved the opportunity to be the head
coach of the Suwannee Bulldogs, I cannot stand silent and let
you miss out on the chance to be part of this football team. I
urge each of you to play ball and to work hard to continue the
tradition of this athletic program. Football is not just about
winning and losing. It builds character and discipline and
teaches the importance of hard work and dedication. It teaches
us to go on to the next play even when the official makes a call
that we feel is unfair to our team. The things you learn in foot-
ball will help prepare you for life.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow
coaches for their support. Only a coach can really understand
the time, commitment and the sacrifices you have made. Your
experience and passion for this game and all it stands for have
been instrumental in the success of this community's athletic
program and the success of, many' young men in today's soci-
ety. It has been a privilege for me to be a part of this coaching
staff.
I want to thank the selection committee members for their
time and consideration. It is an honor to work with the Suwan-
nee High School administration, faculty and staff. Being a
coach has its own rewards that I will carry with me always, but
your vote of confidence means more than you will ever know.
Finally, many teachers, administrators, students, parents and
members of the community have been so kind and encourag-
ing to me and to my family during this whole process. Your
concern and caring ways are why we chose to make Suwannee
County our home 23 years ago.

Sincerely,
Coach (Tommy) Chambers

neged on its promises, we could take it to court. If Congress re-
neges on its promises, there's no judicial course of action whatso-
ever.
Vital to any Ponzi scheme, like Social Security, is the ability to
recruit as many suckers as possible. In 1999, a little noticed part
of President Clinton's plan to "save" Social Security was to force
5 million previously exempted employees into Social Security. If
they were forced into Social Security, it would have created bil-
lions in additional revenue. Guess what. Twelve senators, includ-
ing five Democrats - Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Barbara Box-
er (D-Calif.), Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.), Richard Durbin (D-
Ill.) and Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) - descended on the White
House to demand that President Clinton not support forcing 5 mil-
lion of their constituents into Social Security. They warned of the
adverse impact on employees in terms of lower rates of return and
lost flexibility.
Isn't that great? These are the same politicians who are now re-
sisting President Bush's call to allow Americans to take a part of
their Social Security taxes to put into private retirement accounts.
If they'd go to bat for those 5 million workers to remain out of So-
cial Security, to avoid the adverse impact of lower rates of return
and lost flexibility, why would they fight to deny tens of millions
of workers a right to use a portion of their taxes to do the same?

Is it March already! My, how
times does fly. We're already in
the third month of 2005. When
we think of how fast time flies
we should remember that we
should be accomplishing some-
thing worthwhile every day be-
cause before you know it, you'll
be retiring.
So was the case Feb. 26 when
Suwannee County's own native
son, Tom Kennon, was the spe-
cial guest at a retirement party as
he retires after 32 years. His last
day on the bench was Feb. 28.
Tom Kennon has been an inspi-
ration to everyone around him as
he lived his life as his parents
did, serving the community,
serving his Lord and his family. I
can't begin to tell you what Tom
Kennon has meant to me over
the years as I worked in the court
system as a young reporter, then
became experienced in the ways
of trials and criminals. I've ad-


mired him for his demeanor, his
steadiness to the course he chose
and the way he walked that path.
I've watched his boys grew up
and become men, both who are
admired by those who know
them. And, by his side always
has been Diane, his lovely wife.
I, a full-fledged Seminole fan,
can only wish them all the best in
their retirement years, even
though they are Gators! All kid-
ding aside, best to you, Tom,
we'll miss you at the courthouse,
but you've earned your retire-
ment!
The day after. Tom retired,
Gov. Jeb Bush was interviewing
three possible appointees for that
judgeship. They are our own
Suwannee County resident and
Assistant State Attorney David
Fina; Bob Dekle, another Assis-
tant State Attorney who is a Co-
lumbia County resident but

priate preschool instruction this

shorter period (e.g., six hours
per day for half a year); this is up
to the provider.
VPK can be provided by any
licensed private provider or by
the local public school district.
Anyone wanting to provide
VPK will have to register with
the Gateway Coalition, and
Gateway will work with the pri-
vate providers to see to it they
have the necessary requirements
in place for the program.
Private providers (for-profit
centers, not-for-profit centers,
faith-based centers, non-public
schools or. family child care
home) interested in VPK should

OBITUARIES


20 years before being assigned to
head up the Lake City State At-
torney's Office; and Madison at-
torney Tom Stone. We hope the
Governor will make his decision
soon and fill the office left vacant
in Suwannee County by Tom's
retirement. We certainly don't
want to have that office moved
from Suwannee County.
I'm hearing that this week's
cold weather will likely be the
last for this year. Yeahhhhh! Get
those lawn mowers ready be-
cause the grass is going to get
growing! And, don't forget to
visit area nurseries and garden
shops to get an early choice at
the beautiful flowers they're al-
ready getting in.
Over the weekend our family
enjoyed a get-together with
Shelly in Gainesville. We had
lots of fun and plan to do it again
real soon.
Florida Highway Patrol is
cracking down on aggressive
drivers. They've seen way too
many fatalities in North Florida
and know a tightening down is
in order. Remember, drive de-
fensively, not aggressively. And,
as Mayor Nobles would say,
don't drive without buckling
that seat belt. As I say, don't
drink and drive so you can arrive
alive and others also.

Seniors receive 3-month extension


to apply for
Florida seniors will have an
additional three months to apply
for free prescription medication
following an agreement with
pharmaceutical giant Medco,
Attorney General Charlie Crist
announced today.
The settlement provided eli-
gible Florida seniors with the
opportunity to receive free pre-
scription drug benefits. This lat-
est agreement is designed to
help_more Florida consumers
benefit from the state's prior set-
tlement with Medco, extending
the deadline for distribution of
the benefits to July 20, 2006.
The free medication program,
the result of an April 2004 set-
tlement between the Attorney
General's Office and Medco,
'will distribute generic medica-
tion to citizens who are:
* at least 60 years of age
* considered low-income (in-
comes below 200 percent of the
federal poverty line, or no more
than $19,836 per year for indi-
viduals or $24,973 per year for
couples)
* not receiving Medicaid ser-
vices
The Attorney General's Of-
fice, in conjunction with the De-
partment of Elder Affairs, com-
pleted an initial mailing to 8,000
seniors to inform them of the
program. Follow-up calls were
completed this week and were
accompanied by a second mail-
ing to an additional pool of citi-
zens, notifying them of the pro-
gram's expansion. The longer
time period and expanded eligi-
bility will enable a larger num-


free medication


ber of senior citizens to qualify
for the program. Many of these
citizens could be eligible for up
to $300 of prescription drug
benefit.
"With many of Florida's se-
niors already suffering under
the weight of high prescription
drug costs, this opportunity to
receive the free benefits comes
as welcome relief," said Crist.
"We encourage all eligible citi-
zens to take advantage of the as-
sistance that this program pro-
vides." Florida and 19 other
states had alleged that Medco
encouraged prescribers to
switch patients to different pre-
scription drugs without fully
disclosing the resulting savings
from drug manufacturers.
Medco is changing its busi-
ness practices to inform patients
of their option to decline drug
switches and be reimbursed for
the costs of drug-related switch-
es. Of the 20 states involved,
Florida was the only state that


refused a cash settlement, opt-
ing instead for funds for a
generic drug distribution pro-
gram for needy elderly citizens.
The drug distribution option has
a 25 percent greater net worth
than the cash settlement,
amounting to $2.3 million.
Eligible elderly Floridians are
encouraged to respond prompt-
ly to the mailed notice and re-
turn a signed authorization form
to participate in the medication
distribution program. A wel-
come package from Medco will
be sent to participants that will
guide them through the benefits
of the program.
For more information about
the Free Generic Prescriptions.

caregivers can call the Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs' Elder

Wellborn Baptist Church
members voted unanimously
to call Dr. Donald Minshew
and his first Sunday is March
6. He and his wife, Carol, and
son, Dennis, will move into the
Wellborn Baptist pastorium
very soon. If you want to be
part of the welcoming fellow-
ship time come to Sunday
evening service, March 6, and
plan to stay and be in on the
fun of housewarming gifts.
The Minshews have been on
the mission field for 14 years
and look forward to making
their home in our hometown
almost as much as we look
forward to welcoming them.
Bob Montague has been
everybody's friend at the Well-
born dumpsters for 10 years.
He is Wellborn's Best Beloved
Guy and knows more and a
wider variety of us than any-
one else Most everyone in out
hometown carries their own
trash to the dumpsters . I real-
ly feel sorry for those who do
not because they have missed
out on Bob's tenure as a dump-
ster site manager. We have had
the Best Dumpster site in
Suwannee County for 10
years, and we did appreciate it
! It is not only a physical Best
because Bob used a broom of
10 and kept things clean and
tidy, but it has been 10 years as


---l


a spiritual Best also because
Bob cared about us as people.
His listening ear and compas-
sionate heart was a blessing to
us all. He wrote out little
prayer request tips and gave
them to prayer warriors who
wanted them. His pastor,
Lewis Gooch, told him that his
work was a real ministry, and
we all say AMEN to that. It
was a ministry of encourage-
ment where that was needed
and a ministry of appreciation
of life's good things, a ministry
of shared joys and shared sor-
rows. Bob loves us. We love
him back! Bob shared his per-
sonal joys with glimpses of his
family sometimes, but he
shared very little of his own
complaints. For over a year
now he has been wondering if
it is God's time for Bob to re-
tire. Last Wednesday it was
time. The substitute lady ex-
plains that ,she floats from site.
to site and fills in wherever she
is needed, but she will not be
permanent. She adds that she
surely does know whomever
gets the assignment has big
shoes to fill; that many Well-
born folks are already missing
him. Bob made a good thing
out of the same old humdrum
task of taking out the garbage
and trash.
Thank you Bob Montague

for a job well done. This is a
new chapter for you and for us
We want to continue at our
Wellborn Dumpsters in the
style you established. Maybe
that will be our way of showing
our appreciation of your 10
years on the job. Enjoy the
freedom of choice that comes
with retirement. We are grate-
ful to anticipate seeing you
around town footloose and fan-
cy free.
The WELLBORN Neigh-
borhood Watch enjoyed Danny
Hales as guest speaker on the
final Thursday meeting of Feb-
mary. Ruth Mizell heard her
former boss was coming to
Wellborn and couldn't miss
that. Danny Hales manages the
Suwannee River Regional Li-
brary. His roots are in Ken-
tucky and his home. has been
Live Oak for more than 20
years. His wife manages the
North Florida Community Col-
lege library, and he has a 16-
year-old son at SHS. The sta-
tistics he brought to our atten-
tion about the numbers of peo-
ple using libraries in our state
(68 million) and in our county,
(171,600) were heartening. Av-
eraging 575 people a day,
Suwannee River Regional Li-
brary is a conglomerate con-
sisting of the Live Oak one in
its new (1996) building, Bran-
ford, Jasper, White Springs,
Jennings, Madison, Greenville
and Lee. Does the wonderful
world of Internet preclude li-
braries was a question ad-
dressed by Mr. Hale. The an-
swer is an emphatic "No."
The internet enhances what the
library has to offer. The com-
puter room is a busy place all
hours of the day. People use
the computers at the library and
it is a very real way for a pub-
lic library to bridge the digital
divide and remain a source of
information for all people.
But, said he, the internet stuff
needs discernment about truth
since at this point in time there
are almost no regulations and
anyone can set up a web page
and act authoritatively.
Library book acquisition does
have rules and regulations. A
surprise piece of info to me is
that my library card can get me
into Heritage Quest Online. If
the genealogy bug has bit you,
try it. Go to www.neflin.org/srrl,
click on Remote Access, enter
your library card number. FYI #

general has said he must have
125,00 troops in Iraq for the
next two years to get the job
done. "This is not what we
wanted or expected," Nelson
said. Nelson said the US got
faulty information regarding
Iraq. "One of those was that
they would welcome us with
open arms and you see what's
happening with the insur-
gents!" However, Nelson said
the US has to stay in Iraq and
see the project through or Al
Qaeda or other terrorists
would fill any vacuum the US
might leave, just as they did in
Afghanistan after the US went
there and then left the first
time.
Regarding the question of a
draft for the US, Nelson said
absolutely not. "We're not go-
ing to have, the draft!" he stat-
ed firmly. But, he said, "it's
not going to be the guards like
the guards have been doing.
They didn't sign up for this!"
Nelson suggested the recruits
for the US armed services
must come from citizens who
sign on willingly to become
soldiers. -
"Another hot issue," Nelson
said, "is Social Security." He
went on to explain that in his
opinion President George W.
Bush's plan to change Social
Security is not the best plan.
"Social Security will gef into
financial trouble,,but 'not for
37 or 47 years," Nelson said.
"If you want to deal with sol-
vency, I agree with the Presi-
dent," Nelson said. However,
he added that the plan the
President has laid out for
changes in Social Security
doe not deal with solvency in"
his opinion. He said the plan
cuts benefits and causes mas-
sive borrowing. "This doesn't
sound like a good deal to me,"
Nelson said. Nelson said any
solution to Social Security
should be non-partisan solu-
tions. "That's how you're go-
ing to solve Social Security
and Medicare."
Questions for Nelson
ranged from the drug bill por-
tion of Social Security, pre-


scription drugs, problems with
Spam on computers and no
way to control it coming into
businesses or homes to illegal
immigrants, grants and No
Child Left Behind.
Nelson said he believes
those who use computers need
help solving the problem of
Spam but said it could have
been done earlier through a
bill where criminal penalties
could have been imposed but
weren't. He's working on a bill
to help with this, he said. As
for No Child Left Behind, he
said for citizens to get into
their cars, drive to Tallahassee
and request of the governor to
wave Florida's participation in
No Child Left Behind since
it's causing great financial
burdens on school districts'
and many other problems.
Nelson said that is a valid way
to deal with the problem and
is possible. As for illegal im-
migrants, Nelson said it's sim-
ple. The US must abide by the
laws it already has and the
problem can be solved. In-
stead, he said, the US's bor-
ders "leak like a sieve." With
terrorism as it is today, Nelson
said these are issues that are at
the top of the list to deal with.
Commissioner Randy
Hatch, the board's federal and
state liaison, welcomed Nel-
son and asked him for "a
hand, not a handout" in find-
ing ways to find economic as-
sistance for small counties
like Suwannee. Nelson said
Suwannee County should
consider Enterprise Zones
where tax incentives to locate
businesses in those areas are
the big draw.
Being on a tight schedule,
Nelson left at 2 p.m. to head:
for Lake City where his last
town hall meeting for the
day was scheduled at 3 p.m.
He said he planned to fly
back to Washington if the
snow in Washington didn't
prohibit it since the Con-.
gress had a scheduled meet-
ing March 1.

I have a plastic laminate covering on all the
walls of my bathroom - on the bottom half.
The too was wallpaper--both from the mid
1960s. Can you effectively paint over the
laminate with out tearing it off?? How? I
pulled the paper off already - it was a mess
underneath.
Since )ou are dealing with a non-porous
base , 'ou need to appl\ ,i primer coat. A
moisture barrier such as "KILZ" works well.
Be prepared it is oil based, does not clean up
easily so cover everything! Plus be sure to
have good ventilation, that stuff can mess
with your head.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH

Q: What's the difference between a
canker sore and a cold sore?
A: The two are often confused. One way
to distinguish between the two is to
know that a cold sore usually occurs
outside the mouth and a canker sore
usually occurs inside the mouth. A
canker sore is a small ulcer with a white
or gray base and a red border. When a
canker sore develops, there may be only
one, but there also may be several. A
canker sore is also called an aphthous
ulcer. A cold sore, sometimes called a
fever blister or herpes simplex, is made
up of clusters of fluid-filled blisters that
usually erupt under the nose, under the
chin or around the lips. Cold sores are
usually caused by herpes virus type one
and are extremely contagious. Canker
sores usually heal in about a week or
two. Rinsing with a medicinal
mouthwash can help alleviate
discomfort. Cold sores usually heal in
about a week. Talk to your dentist about
treatment for canker sores and cold
sores. In the case of cold sores, your
dentist may be able to prescribe an anti-
viral drug.

for Holmes in the second.
Suwannee was unable to add
to their total in the second in-
ning.
Keene handled the pitching
chores well in the third.
Three up, three down again
for Holmes.
Galloway led off the bot-
tom of the third with a walk.
Aretino hit into a force out at
second. Billy Moran then
homered over the left-center
fence driving in Aretino.
Baldwin drew a walk and
then Abercrombie wailed one
down the left-field baseline.
Baldwin scored. The third in-
ning ended with the Dogs up
10-1.
Ross Aretino pitched for
Suwannee in the fourth. Sto-
vall gave up one run.


Michael Keene led of for
the Dogs in the bottom of the
fourth. Michael Keene
smacked a huge home run to
start the inning. The Dogs
finished the fourth up 11-2.
Aretino got into trouble in
the fifth and allowed four
runs.
Mark Radford came in a
pitched the last two innings
and did a great job, giving up
no runs. In the seventh Bald-
win made a great catch from
behind third base, rifled it to
Keene at first for a beautiful
out. Then Radford struck out
the last two batters of the
game. Suwannee defeated
Holmes 11-6.
Mark Radford made good
on his varsity pitching debut
against Mayo. Radford, a ju-
nior left-handed pitcher, held
Lafayette scoreless through


three innings of work, strik-
ing out three and allowing
only three hits.
Suwannee was held down
through out most of game of-
fensively until the fifth in-
ning when they broke out and
scored five runs.
Radford was relieved in the
fourth by Rheed Baldwin
who faced six in his two in-
nings, struck out two and no
Hornet hitters reached base.
Billy Moran relieved Bald-
win in the sixth and was
equally effective facing sev-
en Lafayette hitters and strik-
ing out four. Moran was
touched, however, for the
only run of the night as
Lafayette first baseman Ty
Fillyaw, an ex-Bulldog, hit a
solo homerun to rightfield.
Suwannee would tack on
runs in the sixth and final


score would be 9-1. Offen-
sively, Suwannee was lead by
Zack Davis who was 2 for 3
with four RBIs. Gabe Gal-
loway was 2 for 4 with an
RBI. Michael Keene and
Taylor Abercrombie each
collected a hit and a double.
Abercrombie walked three
times and scored three runs.
Look for more Bulldog

Top catfishing holes revealed


Few anglers will ever have
an opportunity to try to reel
'in a freight train, but people
'who hook one of Florida's
monstrous catfish have a
'pretty good idea of what it
would feel like. One of the
reasons Florida owns the
bragging rights to the "Fish-
ing Capital of the World" ti-
tle is this state's lakes and
,rivers are crammed with cat-
fish - and some top the
scales at 60 pounds or more.
For lots of Florida fish fry
-fanciers, however, it's not so
much the fight as it is the vi-
sion of fresh catfish fillets in
,a deep fryer that makes an-
:glers giddy. Roll the fillets
.in corn meal and drop them
'gently into hot vegetable oil,
.and keep an eye on them
while you mix up some hush
-puppies. Then you whip up
,some cheese grits and
coleslaw. Brew up some
iced tea, and come supper-
time, you will have arrived
,in Dixie, no matter where
'you are., It will be the kind;,
�of feast that, as we southern-
ers like to say, "makes you
want to swat your momma's
hunting dog." Actually, we
don't really say that; it just

"Channel cats, white cats
and bullheads are good tar-
gets for kids just learning to
fish," Bonvechio said. "The
equipment is simple, you can
catch them from a pier or
shore, and you don't have to
get up early on a weekend to
go after them. In fact, the
best times to go after catfish
are just before dusk and at
night."
She said catfish's
"whiskers" or barbels are
loaded with sensory cells
that enable catfish to find
food by smell. That's why
successful catfish anglers
use baits with strong odors
like chicken liver or giz-
zards, shrimp, cut mullet and
commercial stink baits.
"Catfish are kind of
like dogs in that respect,",
Bonvechio said. "The worse
it stinks, the better they,like
it, although catfish also will
take less fragrant baits, such
as earthworms and freshwa-
ter clams."

0 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAPLIVE OAK


2005. They are (in no par-
ticular order):
Escambia River - This one
is not for sissies. Big chan-
nel catfish come out of this
river between mid-April and
June and early October into
November if the water stays
warm. It also gives up plen-
ty of blue catfish and flat-
heads. Anglers catch catfish
here year round, but it gets a
little slower when the weath-
er gets a little nippy.
The Apalachicola River
and Lake Seminole - It never
fails.... If you're looking for
superlatives about freshwa-
ter fishing in Florida, you
can count on finding this
system somewhere on the
top 10 list in every category.
Channel cats and flatheads
rule these waters. Big chan-
nel catfish dominate the
fishing action from, late May
into early July. Flatheads
start getting hungry in April
and stay that way into the
summer. Even during win-
ter, small catfish get the
munchies for some good old
stink baits and other fa-
vorites. The best spots to
fish are from Jim Woodruff
Dam south, old creek chan-
nels, Lake .Seminole back-
waters and around mouths of
tributaries.
Choctawhatchee River -
This river is a sweetie-pie
that, offers up some nice, big
channel catfish and bull-
heads along with a few flat-
heads. Late May through
early June and October into
November (if the water stays


warm) are the times to go if
you're after the big ones.
Small ones never stop biting,
but they get a little lazy
about it when the weather
gets too cool for them. Fish-
ing is good all the way from
the Alabama line to West
Bay and near the mouth of
Holmes Creek and other
tributaries.
St. Johns River and
Dunn's Creek - Here's where
you go to wear yourself out
catching channel cats, white
catfish and bullheads. Big
channel catfish action gets
heavy in early May through
June. Smaller catfish feed
relentlessly during spring
and fall months but slow
down during winters. The
best places to fish are
Dunn's Creek to Lake Cres-
cent, Murphy's Creek from
the St. Johns to Dunn's
Creek and the river section
from Palatka to Little Lake
George. There is a deep hole
on the north side of Buffalo
Bluff Bridge that is a real
:honeyhole, but it has lots of
snags. Take plenty of hooks
and weights if you fish there,
because the snags will keep
some of them. Try to watch
your language when that
happens, especially if you
take children fishing with
you.
Oklawaha River -Big
channel catfish, along with
some whites and bullheads,
bite here May /through June
and October to mid-Novem-
ber. Small ones keep on bit-
ing all year from Rodman


Dam east to the St. Johns
River and from the west end
of Rodman Reservoir to the
lock and dam at Moss Bluff.
Take home a mess of fish
from this river, add a little
onion to your hush puppy
recipe and cook it all up
yourself, and your whole
family will think .you're a
hero.
Ochlockonee River - Flat-
head action heats up in early
April, and the channel cats
join in from mid-May into
early summer. Both species �
keep on biting' until the
weather turns cool in Octo-
ber orNovember. Small cat-
fish bite year-round, but they
bite best in warm months.
The most successful anglers
fish the Talquin tailrace area,
but the whole river offers'
good catfishing, including
flathead and bullhead fish-
ing. When you go catfishing
on this river, there's no ques-
tion about the main course
for supper. There's nothing
left to decide except whether
to use mild or sharp cheese
on the grits.
Suwannee and Santa Fe
rivers - Catfish love the lime
rock areas throughout these
rivers, particularly in the up-
per and middle reaches.
They like the dead'alls in the
lower rivers. Channel cat-
fish,- white catfish and bull-
heads bite year-round, but
the big channel\qats like to
get caught from 'late April
through June. If you\lecide

Well, this is the last week
r-





of the closed season on trout
and Tuesday trout season
will be open again.
Expect to find most trout
out in 5-7 feet of water re-
sponding to Saltwater assas-
sin candy corn, Calcasieu
Brew, Space guppy and
Electric chicken eels and sea
shads under Cajun Thunders.
I would rig a long 48 inch
leader under the 2.5 inch
oval Thunder for early sea-
son trout and be sure to tip
my jig with Fish Bites Fish'n
Strips.
Live pinfish may still be a
bit tough to find active until
the water temps get back
into the low to mid-sixties.
Most folks went offshore
and caught grouper this
week with a few folks find-
ing reds inshore.
Joey Landreneau had 15
reds on rootbeer DOAs in
two feet of water. He kept
one over five pounds.
Last week Jim Causey and
Sam Speils had eight
grouper with one over 12
pounds from 50 feet of water
using frozen cigar minnows.
They trolled up one grouper
on Mann's Stretch Thirty
plus plugs.
Billy Pillow and Junior
Proenza went Saturday and
brought in ten grouper with
one over 16 pounds Junior
landed. Live porgies (caught
on Fish Bites Fish'n Strips
in 37 feet of water) were the


--------


ticket for the grouper which
bit in 63 feet of water.
Bubba Burnettte of Pinetta
with Gareth Smith of Madi-
son, Florida and Bart Butler
of Valdosta, Ga. had 15
grouper on cigar minnows in
60 feet.
Tim McGregor and his
wife had their limit Tuesday
in the fog and said it took
less than 45 minutes to catch
'em up! How deep ? what
one? why 45 feet of water
on squid . . . of course!
These two tournaments are
coming up over the next few
weeks and I hope everyone
will come down to Keaton
Beach and Steinhatchee and
have some fun fishing in
these events and help out
with our area youth and
communities!
The Taylor County High
School Senior class is hav-
ing a Saltwater Fishing

fish, Grouper and
Sheepshead categories! for
more information contact

3489 or call any of the Stein-
hatchee Marinas.
This year fishermen will
be able to start from Stein-
hatchee and Keaton Beach.
Steinhatchee will start at the
mouth of the river as before
and Keaton Beach will start
from the end of the Keaton
Beach fishing ' pier. The
Tournament weigh-in, poly-
graph testing and the raffle
will be held at the Stein-
hatchee Community Center
as in the past.
As a bonus, the Stein-
hatchee School PTO collect-
ed donated fish, both before
and during the tournament,
then sponsored a Fish Fry
the following weekend.The
Steinhatchee PTO is again,
asking folks to donate their
catch to their
annual fundraising Fish

to fry up some potatoes to go
with the fish, do them in
separate oil. You wouldn't
want your catfish to taste
like potatoes.
Clermont Chain of Lakes -
Channel catfish and white
catfish like to hang out
around canals and channels
when water is flowing
through them, but the rest of
the time, the best places to
fish for catfish are offshore,
open-water sites, particularly
near drop-offs or around bot-
tom structures. To bag cat-
fish in this system, some
commercial trotliners catch
them by baiting with chunks
of freshly caught gar in the
bigger channels. They also
use honeybees for bait in
smaller channels, and it
works. Don't mess around
too long when you're through
fishing for the day. As with
all kinds of fish, there is no
substitute for freshness to


keep. the taste level in the
magnificent category.
Haines Creek - Between
lakes Eustis and Griffin, es-
pecially below the lock and
dam, channel catfish get real
active from mid-April
through June and again in
October and November when
water temperatures start to
drop. That's when.catfishing
picks up in creeks and slows
down in lakes as catfish seek
out flowing water and stay a
little deeper. Small catfish
bite year-round, especially
when the creek is flowing. If
you go fishing here when the
weather is cool, be sure to put
a little hot sauce on your hush
puppies to help you warm
back up at mealtime.
Upper Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes - Moving water con-
centrates catfish, so that's the
ticket for hauling in channel
catfish, white catfish and
bullheads out .of this chain.
The best times are peak
spawning periods - April


through June for channel cat-
fish and October and Novem-
ber for bullheads. The best
spots are East Lake. Canal,
Southport Canal, C-36 (the
canal between lakes
Hatchineha and Kissimmee),
below the Kissimmee River
structure, around the mouth
of and in Shingle Creek and
around fish attractors. Cat-
fish like to hang around drop-
offs and around bottom struc-
tures in canals. Admittedly,
some of the lakes in this part
of central Florida have names
that are hard to spell, but
don't worry about that. Just
know that if you fish here,
your family is going to eat
well that night.
Resident freshwater fish-
ing licenses cost $13.50 per
year. Nonresidents pay
$16.50 for a seven-day li-
cense or $31.50 for an annu-
al license.

In November of 2004
Rick Marler opened his
third business in the Suwan-
nee Valley area, "The Digi-
tal Bean," a PC gaming
business that serves not
only for gaming but also as
a research center. Marler's
other two businesses Light-
ning Access and the Com-
puter E.R. have been estab-
lished for more than eight
years. Marler serves in
many capacities in his com-
panies. He assists and over-
sees in areas such as cus-
tomer and employee rela-
tions, billing, research and
development and network
.operations. He has worked
in many computer related
jobs as an Internet service
provider, a network admin-
istrator for a community
college as well as a univer-
sity. Marler says he started
these businesses because he
saw an opportunity in this
area for the services he pro-
vides.
The services these compa-
nies provide are Internet ac-
cess, web posting, co-loca-
tion, broad band, high level
wireless networking, PC
gaming, and research.
Marler and his staff are
highly trained and qualified.
Marler attended North
Florida Community Col-
lege, as well as the Univer-
sity of Central Florida. Mar-
ler says he enjoys many
things about his work but
mostly enjoys working with
the newest types of tech-
nologies as well as building
strong business relation-
ships. Marler enjoys a won-
derful family and attends
Suwannee Station Baptist
Church. When asked what
his hobbies are, he humor-
ously replies," When do I
have time for hobbies?"
One of Marler's biggest
goals in business is to pro-
vide high speed services to
the entire Suwannee County
area.
At less than 30 years. of
age, Marler is on his way to
being one of the most suc-
cessful men in Suwannee
County.

It happens every day. People take a quick swig from a bottle of
water or juice that they thought was theirs. If they're lucky, the
only consequence might be a chiding comment that they've picked
up the wrong drink. Far too often, though, the consequences are
much more serious. The person drinking the "wrong drink" ends up
with a mouthful of germs,
instead of just a mouthful
1.' of refreshment. And for
... people with food
11 ' "3 allergies, drinking from a
* s#, , , , : ...1. bottle other than their
:! ....... . ' ^ own can even be deadly.
STake a look around your
S local gym, playground or
child's sporting event and
you'll see countless
S, beverage bottles that look
V;:: H identical. In fact, how
Everyday, people take a sip from someone else's bottle many times have you
that they think is theirs. Beverage ID tags can help prevent seen your own child pick
that from happening to you or your children. seen aor own chil pick
up a drink that he thought
was his and start gulping away? You watch from afar, praying that
whomever's bottle he's picked up doesn't have a cold, sore throat --
or worse. And just imagine how many times you or a family
member have mistakenly finished a whole bottle of someone else's
beverage. It kind of makes all of the unexplained colds, viruses and
cases of stomach flu make sense, doesn't it?
"In addition to washing your hands frequently, not drinking from
other people's drink containers is perhaps the best way to prevent
the spread of germs from person to person," says Toni Ann Claire,
M.D., a pediatrician in East Rockaway, New York. "Bottled drinks
are breeding grounds for all types of harmful bacteria, and just a
few sips of someone else's beverage are enough to spread germs
and disease."
Within the past few years, public health officials have made great
strides in preventing the spread of germs by advocating frequent
hand washing. But when it comes to not drinking out of other
people's glasses, cups or bottles, it's not just a matter of telling
people not todo it. It's more about helping to prevent drinking
from someone else's drink container unknowingly or, equally as
dangerous, preventing someone else from drinking out of your
glass or bottle when you're not around.
To make sure that you're not putting yourself at increased risk for
germs, health experts advise the following:
* At the gym, keep your water bottles close to you. People often
reach for the bottle closest to them, and may forget that they left
their bottle at another machine.
* Have your bottled beverage stand out from the others. Just
marking your name on your bottle isn't enough. Thirsty people
don't take the time to read the "fine print" -- until it's too late. To
reduce the chances of other people drinking from your bottle or
your children's bottles, consider the latest way to "tag" them. Itz
Mine! Beverage ID Tags make it easier for people to keep track of
their bottles. The tags come in bright colors and their designs
reflect a variety of sports/leisure themes, as well as include a
"Property Of" space to write a name. The products are available at
sporting goods stores and drug stores nationwide.
"I realized that I was throwing away my water bottles each day at
the gym because I couldn't identify my own, and I was aghast at
the thought of drinking out of a stranger's beverage bottle," says Itz
Mine! founder and president Lisa Moschitta. "The tags give people
the peace of mind that they're not going to get sick from
mistakenly drinking from someone else's bottle at places like the
gym, school or sporting events."
So to stay healthier during any season, remember to keep your
drinks to yourself and keep other people's germs at bay.

AND THE GOSPEL MUST E PUBLISHED AMONG ALL T

Suwannee Valley


By Rev. Harold
B. Bennett
What God has revealed
to mankind concerning the
future... man (both in -and
out of the church) has done
his dead-level best to con-
ceal or pervert. Let me ask
one question to the aver-
age churchgoer ... how of-
ten does your pastor
preach on "end-time
prophecy?" Think about
it!!! By the same token,
how long has it been since
you wondered why he
avoided this. .theme? After
all, Bible prophecy appears
over 8,000 times through-
out the Bible (a fair per-
centage is centered around
the second coming of
Christ) and is recorded in
part by almost every writer
in the Bible. Did you know
that Bible prophecy proves
the authenticity of. the
Bible, the validity of Jesus'
as the Son of God, the fact
that this world as we know
it is coming to a close and
that there is indeed a
"heaven" and a "hell,"
among other things. Even
those who teach the second,
coming of Christ, often
mislead their hearers by
claiming that When Christ
comes tor His church, it
will be done secretly. This
is -denied in' Revelations
1:7, Matthew 24:21-27, and
Paul points out that the
church will not be taken
unawares (see I, Thessalo-
nians 5:1-8). All in all, there
are 29 books (using 69 pas-
sages) throughout the
Bible which reveal this.
truth. '
Regardless of the "argu-
ments" that arise when
"end-time". p rophec ies are
discussed, all we have to
do is listen to the Master...
the Lord Jesus Christ ... in
Matthew 24:25. It begins
with the concern of several
of His disciples about
when the Lord would set
up His kingdom upon the
earth (they asked again just
before He ascended to His
heavenly home (see Acts
1:6-11). Our Lord warned
His disciples to beware of
"false teachers" who will


come claiming that they
are come in His name and
will deceive many. Over
the years and especially -ir
modern times, false
prophets have been in
abundance (see II Corinthi-
ans 11:13-15). This -be--.
comes the first "sign" that
the time of His return is "at
hand." NOTE: Of the many
"faces" of deception we see
all around us, "believism"
takes the greatest toll of
"lost souls." What is "be-
lievism? It is simply believ-
ing that Jesus was indeed
upon earth and He died for
sinners. What's wrong
with that? Nothing ... as far
as it goes ... but without
"repentance" it becomes a
"false doctrine" which will
lead many down the
"broad way" which leads
to hell (see Matthew 7:13-
23). The Lord Jesus made
the falsity of "believism"
quite clear when He said,
'"Unless you repent you
shall all likewise perish
(Luke 13:3). The apostle
Paul further clarified this
all-important truth (see,
Acts 20l:20-21). One cannot-
qualit~ as a Christian sim-
ply by accepting the fact
that Jesus existed, joining a:
church, and /or tuning
over a "new-leaf." Salva-
tion is a miracle of God
which transforms -a sinner
into a saint of God (see Ti-
tus 2:11-12, II Corinthians
5:17). ,
Our Lbrd continues list-
ing other "signs" ... an in-
crease of wars and rumors.
of wars, of famines, and of
earthquakes (see Matthew
24:6-8) which are only the
beginning of "birth pangs"
(that is, the birth of 'new
age). '"Then they (the ene-
mies of the Cross) will de-.
liver you (the church ... see
Matthew 10:16-23) up to
tribulation and will kill
you, and you will be hated
by all nations on account of
My name" (see Matthew
24:9). Because of the sever-
ity of the persecution to-
wards the church, many
who claimed to be Chris-
tians.will turn away from
God (the great apostasy ...

Thessalonians 2:1-5 de-
clares that the Lord will

Antichrist appears in an
active role on earth and a
great apostasy from the

more details see Revelation
13:1-10 and Matthew 24:15-
31). Above and beyond all
the signs that point to our
Lord's coming for His
church (see Matthew 24:29-
31) the greatest is found in
MT-atthew 24:147... "And this
gospel of the kingdom
shall be preached (and/or
witnessed) in the whole
world for a witness to all
the nations and then shall
the end come." In effect,
the true church has a re-
sponsibility to share the
gospel wherever there is
an opportunity to do so .
to friends, family mem-
ber_, to neighbor-, etc.
NOTE: If is important to
remember that the Christ-
i n's motive for witnessing
or sharing important Bible
truths must always reflect
our love ... the fact that we
care. Sometimes people
take offense when hearing
truth ... and this may be re-
flected in various ways.
Take heart, over the past
2,000 years witnessing
Christians have been tor-
tured and even killed be-
cause of their witness for
God ... and it will happen
again just before Christ re-
turns to resurrect the saints
... (read the book "Fox's
Book of Martyrs"). Revela-
tion 12:17 says, "and the
dragon (representing Sa-
tan) was enraged with the
woman (representing Is-
rael who God protected ...
(see Revelation 12:15-16)
and went off to make war
with the rest of her off-
spring" (or Christians ...
how do I know this? ... no-
tice the rest of this verse ...
"who keep the command-
ments of God and bear the
testimony of Jesus."
Christians can also have
access to a tract ministry
which can be used when
paying bills, left in restau-
rants when dining out, etc.
The sad truth is that a large
percentage of existing
churches have become as
the church of Laodicea (see
Revelation 3:14-22).
In closing, let me say this
... I offer this article not as a
criticism, but rather, it is
offered as a reminder and
an encouragement to those
Christians who read this to
be busy fulfilling the will
of God as it is stated in the
Word of God. Take time to
read II Corinthians 5:14-
21!!!


Pastor Lester Curry
Faith Community Church
Once when Jacob was
cooking , some stew Esau-
came in from the open
country, famished. He said
to Jacob, "Quick, let me
have some of that red stew!
I'm famished!" Jacob
replied, "First sell me your
birthright." .
S"Look, I am about to-
die," Esau said. "What
good is the birthright to
me?" But Jacob said,
"Swear to me first." So he
swore an oath to him, sell-
ing his birthright to Jacob..
-In this passage of scrip-
ture we have two ap-
proaches to life; one broth-
er is willing to do whatever
it takes to get something of
great value and the other
was willing to give up
something of great value
for a very small price.
As I was contemplating
the message in this passage
of scripture my mind went
back to another time when
I was a boy living at home
with my mother and father.
I remember in those days it
was. always a stretch to
make ends meet . To help
make them 'meet Saturday
became known. as "bean
soup day"' at our house!
You know, I never got tired
of my mother's bean soup
and even now I can smell
the wonderful aroma that
filled our home on Satur-
day mornings. My mother
went home to be with Lord
many years ago and as I
was reading this story
about Esau .and Jacob, this
thought came to my mind;
what would I give, how
much would I pay if I
could have another bowl of


-1enesis 25: 29-3,
my mother's bean soup?
Esau had a bowl of stew!
It must have tasted as good
to him as my mother's bean
soup did to me. However,
it was just stew. When
compared to his birthright,
the stew looks pretty triv-
ial; the trivial next to the
treasure; the temporary
next to the eternal. Before
Esau-took his-first spoonful
of stew, Jacob, his brother,
gave him the bill; "this
bowl of stew will cost you
your birthright." In that
moment Esau had a deci-
sion to make and in that
moment Esau traded some-
thing of great value, his
birthright, for the trivial!
Today we see people
making the same kinds of
trades that Esau made.
Every day people take the
treasure of marriage and
children and give them
away for a cheap one night
stand. Sometimes careers
are traded because of a
foolish decision to do
something dishonest. Often'
times people will trade
their reputations and char-
acter for addictions. And
sometimes people will
Seven trade -'-'-their
"birthright", into God's
family for worldly plea-
sures! Sometimes I feel like
screaming, why? Why do
you insist on wasting your
life?
"Esau, why would you
make a trade like this?" He
made the trade for the
same reason people make
the trade today - strong
temptation! The Word of
God reveals the three faces
of temptation. They are
called, "lust of the eyes,"
"lust of the flesh" and "the


pride of life." Esau's down-
fall was the desire of the
flesh. Temptation came
when he wanted fullness in
his stomach more than
faithfulness in his heart. He
craved selfishness more
than sinlessness. He want-
ed his own gratification
more than God's glorifica-
tion.
Before you decide - to
make a trade in your life,
remember these words.
"When we sin, we will go
further than we ever in-
tended to go! When we sin,
we will stay longer than we
ever intended to stay!
When we sin, we will pay
more than we ever intend-
ed to pay!" (source of quote
unknown). If we could just
see our future and the won-
derful plan that God has
for us we would never
trade His plan for the
worlds. If we would take
the time to pray and seek
God's voice through the
power of the Holy Spirit' If
we would learn to pray
through the trade-offs that
we are confronted with
each day and if we would
only surrender our lives to
the One who said, "I have
come that they may have
life, and have it to the full"
- the One who gave His life
on Calvary for the forgive-
ness of sin, Christ Jesus, we
would make better and
holier trades in life.
So, what is it that you
treasure? What is it that
you consider valuable?
What are you willing to
trade?
How much would you
pay for a bowl of soup?
Please, do not sell yourself
short!


Bring out the best in others
We all have an obligation to try tobring out the
good qualities in others. It is an important respon-
sibility for parents and teachers to recognize and
help develop the talents that their children may
possess. Coaches, clergy, employers, and even hus-
bands and wives also bear a responsibility to help
bring out the best in those with whom they associ-
ate. Supporting and caring about others exempli- T
fies the love that God has for us, and in the Bible, -
there are many examples of ordinary people be-
coming heroes and heroines because our Lord was
able to bring out their best efforts. Being consider-
ate, kind and helpful to others not only brings out
the best in them, it also brings out the best in us. -
It is important to reflect good values and God's
love in our everyday life, and we should be mind-
ful that our words and actions do affect others. .
By this shall all men knoW that ye are
My disciples, if ye have love one to another.

By Pam Campbell
Time really seems to fly
by. The month of February
came and went almost as
fast as we could blink! Here
we are in the third month of
the New Year! Have you
been using your time wise-
ly since the New Year be-
gan? I wonder how many of
us actually take enough
time for God. Yes, it is true
that most of us always have
too much to do and it seems
never enough time to do it.
We do need to take care of
our families, we do need to
work, or go to school, there
are extracurricular activi-
ties, meetings, household
chores, groceries .to buy,
places to go, people to see,
errands to run, many peo-
ple and things demanding
our time. Each day we are
given 24 hours to eat, sleep,
take care of our bodies, our
families, work, play and all
the other things involved in
our own lives. Sometimes
you may wonder how in
the world you can get it all
done, or feel like you just
can't. Have you ever
stopped to think that
maybe the reason you get
stressed out is that you are
trying to do too many
things? One of the things
,that I-have fouhdct6obe a big
factor in feeling over-
whelmed and stressed out
is very simple, not getting
enough rest! God created
our bodies to need to rest.
I know, we all think we
can "do it all," but the truth
is we are God's creation,
and as someone created in
the image of God, we
should follow in His paths.
The. truth is only God "can
do it all." When God's son
Jesus walked this earth he
always had people- who
were after Him to come to
their house, and to help
them, to come lay hands on
someone. He was busy, but
He was about the Father's
Business. Christians created
in the image of God should
be about God's business.
We surely should take time


out each week to go to
church, we should become
involved in our local
church, and we certainly
should help others. But, we
must understand that even
when we are doing the
Lord's work we can get so
busy that we forget who we
are working for and why.
Going to church, prayer
meetings, Sunday School,
Revivals or any other Chris-
tian function, though very
important, cannot ever re-
place our own personal
time with God. When Jesus
walked this earth even He
knew he needed to be alone
with the Father. In the Bible
in the book of Mark, chap-
ter 14, verses 32-35, we find
Jesus going into the Garden
of Gethsemane to talk to
God. "They went to a place
called Gethsemane, and Je-
sus said to His disciples,
"Sit here while I pray." He
took Peter, James and John
along with Him,, and He be-
gan to be deeply distressed
and troubled. "My soul is
overwhelmed with sorrow
to the point of death,"'He
said to them. "Stay here and
keep watch." Going a little
farther, He fell to the
ground and prayed that, if
possible the hour 'Might
,-pass frort1Hiii." \ ou tsee
even Jesus, God's Son,
needed to talk to-His Fa-
ther, God, especially when
He was so distressed and
troubled because He knew
His death would soon
come, because of our sins.
When you are stressed out,
Jesus really does under-
stand and wants to help
you. ; .
In Jeremiah 29:13 we read
"And ye shall 'seek Me, and
find Me, when ye shall
search for M6 with all your
heart." If you can be alone
with God, 'take time for
God, you will find Him,,
and He will always help
you.
Have you ever been in the
presence of someone who
seemed to 'make you un-
comfortable? You just did


not feel quite right about
being around them? Now,
have you ever been around
someone you really enjoyed
being around; there was
Just something so special, so
joyful, so peaceful about
that person that you want-
ed to have what they have?
The difference in the two is
simple, one has been spend-
ing time with the things of
the world, and the other has
been spending time with
:the Heavenly Father. If we
are truly Christians, if we
say we love God and that
we live for Jesus, then our
lives should reflect Jesus.
Many people struggle with
how to get their lives to re-
flect Jesus. Sure, it is easy to
sing the little song "This
Little Light of Mine, I'm
Gonna Let It Shine,a" but is
it really shining? Or have
we become as busy as
everyone else in the world,
so busy with our lives and
even busy with what we
think is God's work that we
have forgotten what it takes
to really let our lights shine,
what it takes to always have
that sweet peace and joy in
our lives on a daily basis,
have we gotten to the point
where we too, are living a
'stressed out life?
We ean rleaoni lot about'
being too busy from Mary
and Martha. In Luke 10: 38-
42 we read about Jesus and
His disciples going to the
home of Mary and Martha.
Mary chose to spend her
time sitting at Jesus' feet lis-
tening to what He said, but
Martha was all worried
about all the preparations
for their coming. She got
mad and asked Jesus to tell
her sister to help her, and
Jesus told her she was wor-
ried and upset about many
things, but that was not
what mattered. Mary had
chosen what mattered, to
take time to sit at her Sav-
ior's feet. When we get all
worried and upset, remem-
ber the only thing that mat-
ters is spending time with'
God.


I Do you feel you are on a
ride that you can't get off,
like the stress sometimes is
closing in on you, trying to
overtake you? There is a
way to get that peace back,
to turn your life around, to
get off the out of control
ride you are on, there is
hope for each of us to live a
life with much less stress,
there is a way to have that
joy back on your face and in
your heart. The way is sim-
ple if you will just take the
time! The most important
thing you can do every day
in the 24 hours that God
gives you is take time for
God. Not just a little prayer
over the food, not just when
you pray with your kids at
night, not a prayer meeting,
not going to church, though
all good, they will never
take the place of what is
needed in your spirit, soul
and body, time alone with
GOD.
I wonder how many of
you remember when I chal-
lenged you to take time to
.go outside at night and look
up at the magnificent stars
and talk to God? I hope that
some of you did remember,


and took the time. I am sure
if you did, you were very
happy with the peace that
you felt and the joy you re-
ceived from spending time
alone with God the father. If
you have not tried this yet,'I
ask you again to try, it is
very simple really, just go
outside after dark and look
up at the glorious display of
stars that God has created
and talk to Him. Maybe you
can't go outside, I under-
stand, but you too can still
find a way to be alone with
God. Maybe you wonder
how to talk to God. A lot of
times I think even Chris-
tians don't seem to under-
stand that talking to God is
just like talking to another
person, just talk and He will
listen, to anything good or
bad that you have to say.
Don't ever be afraid to tell
God -anything because He
already knows everything.
Take time to worship Him,
to thank Him for your life,
your salvation, your family,
for everything and most of
all.give Him praise!
When you get to the place
where you take time every
day to be alone with God,


you will not be so stressed,
you will find that peace and
joy once again;,you won't
feel you are on an out-of-
control merry go round.
You will be able to sing
with all your heart "This
Little Light of Mine" and it
really will shine! You see,
people who are not Chris-
tians should be able to tell
that you have been in the
presence of God just by be-
ing around you.
Remember, everyone on
the earth gets the same 24
hours you do, what you
choose to do with your 24
hours will make a big dif-
ference in how you feel,
how you think, how you act
and how others see you.
God wants us to get plenty
of rest, to take care of our-
selves and our families, to
work hard, to do His work.
But, the thing that most
everybody skips is spend-
ing enough quality time
alone with God. Do your-
self and everyone you
know a favor, make that
your first priority, then
your life will be filled with
the joy of the Lord! It's time
to take time for God!


God is always watching .

Being our Creator. God know usi better than we know

Sometimes we may forget that God is watching us. We
may believe that when we do something wrong, it's not
really that bad if no one sees us or it we do not get caught.
\Ve may even rationalize our actions and try to convince
S-__ ouisel'es that the wrong we did was justified. However,

loves us and forgiv\'es our wrongdoing. Whenever we are
tempted or realize that we may have sinned or hurt some-
S one, we should ask our Lord's forgiveness and try to
make amends. The Lord's Prayer exemplifies God's grace
....- and mercy when we pray "forgive LLS our sins, just as vwe
have forgi en those who have sinned against us."
If we confess our sins, He is faithful
and just, and willforgive our sins and
cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Kids need time for God


By Aunt Pam
Have you kids noticed
how fast the time has
gone since it was Christ-
mas -'and--New Year's!
Now we have already
passed Valentine's day
and Easter will be com-
ing soon! Time seems
like it just flies by! Soon
you will be out of school
and summer will be


here.
Everyday each of you
have 24 hours to live,
and it is up to you and
your'parents, ort whoever
you live with to decide
what you do with those
hours. We know that we
all need to sleep, to take
a bath, to help with the
chores, go to school, do
our homework, hopeful-


ly go to church, eat
breakfast, lunch and
supper, read, play and
maybe participate in af-
-teri school aoitivities iSee.;'
even kids have a lot to
do each day, and I am
sure you can think of a
lot, of other things you
need to do in a 24-hour
day! But I want to know
do you take time every


day for the most impor-
tant thing of all? The
thing that can make your
days and nights happy
and peaceful', without
that word stress! The an-
swer is very simple and
when you learn to do it
every day, you will have
lots of peace and joy, and
you will enjoy all of your
time everyday much


more! The simple answer
is take time to spend
with God! I don't mean
when you go to church,
or pray at the dinner
table, I mean actually
taking time to'go outside
alone or go in bedroom,
whatever place you can.
go to be alone to pray.
'Praying is really easy,
just talk to God like you


do to your family. God
understands everything
we say, because He al-
ready knows everything,
but it is important for -us
to tell Him what we need
or want,., and to let Him
fill us with His peace
and His joy everyday!
God is always there for
you, so take some time
every day for God.


Jesus died at Calvary
For the sin of all mankind
The action of love
preformed that day,
Was in God's perfect time.
It was found out, that blessed eve,
Oh, dear brother, without fail.
Jesus was that sacrificed Lamb,
So long hid behind the veil.
The Holiness of Holies,
Was where the High Priest
acted out,


Behind the Veil
The sacrifice for many;
In their heart there was no doubt.
The Lamb would be sufficient,
To stand in their stead.
Without the shedding
of innocent blood,
There would be not
one worthy breath.
Though publicly Jesus hung there,
His body marred and turning
pale.
His blood flowed for everyone,


For the last time behind the veil.
Jesus yielded up His Spirit,
The Glory from heaven fell.
The veil was rent
from top to bottom,
He was the One behind the veil.
Don't let anybody fool you, ,
Neither on radio, TV, or by mail.
Our Savior is the Promise,
For all to view behind the veil.
Thank You Lord,
Kathy Wilson
