Pregnancy Crisis Center walk/run raises $32,000


Robert Bridges
Democrat Reporter

The Pregnancy Crisis Cen-
ter of Lake City and Live Oak
raised more than $32,000 dur-
ing its annual walk/run
fundraisers Sept. 9 in both
cities. The money will cover
about half the organization's
yearly, operating expenses,
said executive director Mary
Sue Fulghum.
"Because of the people who
turned out, because of all their
hard work, this was the best
~... -.


one yet," she said. The event
has been held every year ex-
cept one since 1987.
Fulghum said that all spon-
sors had not yet fulfilled their
pledges, and she encourages
them to do so.
The Pregnancy Crisis Cen-
ter offers a wide range of as-
sistance to pregnant women
and girls. "We see right at
1,000 girls a year," said Ful-
ghum.
The Lake City office
opened in 1984. A satellite of-
fice opened in Live Oak in
2002.

the national See You at the Pole (SY'AT P
eenrt. includinr-2 Suwannee Mliddle School,'
(SNIS i, Suit aruiee High School (SHS) and,
Melody Christian Academy (MCA).
Students began the ceremony at SHS by.
singing several songs before a prayer.
"We believe in something very passion-
ately, and we see this as a good way to
spread the word and witness to people,"
said SHS Fellowship of Christian Athletes
(FCA) President Steven Ppate. "It also
helps build our relationships with each
other."
SHS FCA leadership council member
Matthew Schroeder said though FCA'
meets weekly, the organization.participat-
ed in the event to do even more.
"We're trying to promote the name of
Jesus throughout the school," he said.
There were about 50 students and others
attending the event at SHS. SHS FCA
sponsor Vanessa Menhennett attended the
event, along with at least one local pastor
who videotaped the event.
At SMS, MCA Youth Pastor Darrin
Baldwin opened the prayer, while students
followed. SMS FCA sponsor Al Johnson
attended the event along with Aelaina
Voyles, a local youth worker.
"We want to take a stand at our school
and show kids it's okay to worship even if


you're at school," said SMS student Mar-
shanna Boyette.
"This helps us to show others we can
worship freely at school and not be
ashamed of it," said SMS FCA President
Jason Good.
.ohsii-orn said the event gives students
the opportuniti to publicly display they

Have you considered glazing? A handsome
color-washed or glazed wall would solve all
your problems: the irregular, textured effect
of the color wash would disguise the
irregularities in. your wall surface, and the
durable glaze finish is'washable and stands
up to smudges or handprints with ease.

Two types of Rhinitis
Rhinitis causes nasal congestion, sneezing, itching, and runny nose. This
condition affects more than 50 million people in the United States.
Rhinitis often occurs in people who have asthma. The two types of rhinitis
are allergic and non-allergic. Allergic rhinitis occurs when allergens cause
the immune system to release substances such as histamine and.
leukotrienes, which lead to the symptoms of rhinitis. Non-allergic rhinitis
does not involve the immune system and usually occurs in adults.
Symptoms such as nasal congestion, nasal inflammation, and runny nose
occur year-round in non-allergic rhinitis.
Treatment of allergic rhinitis begins with a plan to identify and avoid
triggers of symptoms for each individual person. Leukotriene antagonists,
such as the prescription medication Singulair (montelukast sodium), may
be prescribed to treat all the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Antihistamines
are also used to treat this condition. Nasal corticosteroid sprays and
decongestant sprays are used to treat both types of rhinitis. Decongestant
sprays should only be used for short periods of time as they may cause
medication-induced rhinitis, if used for long periods of time. Runny nose
may be treated with Atrovent (ipratropium) nasal spray. Allergy shots may
be considered for persons with persistent symptoms, and are administered
over a 3 to 5 year period. 302197-F

Robert Bridges
Democrat Reporter
The Live Oak City Coun-
cil adopted an operating
budget of $16.465.2"5 for
2006-07 during a Sept. 26
meeiuni at City Hall. The
figure represents a 13 per-
cent increase u\ er last ecar's
budget of $14,565.102.
Councilman Don Boyeite
attributed the increase to
rapid commercial develop-
ment near the intersection of
US 129 and 1-10.
"Ninety percent of the in-
crease is because of the


budget
tremeudoCus amount of ex-
pansion taking place north'
of town," he said.
For example, he said, the
city is building a vwo mil-
lion gallon water tank to ac-
commodate future construc-
tion in the area.
A construction project to
improve storm drainage also
helped inflate the budget.

In a Sept. 18 interview with
the Democrat. Gold Kist
president and chief executive
officer John Bekkers flatly re-
jected a $20 per share buyout
bid from Pilgrim's Pride.
"Twenty dollars is certainly
not the number." he said.
Bekkers indicated that the
Gold Kist board might be
willing to consider a higher
offer. ."
Pilgrim's Pride seems to,
believe that $20 is high
enough. Gold Kist stock.
which had been trading at
$12.93 a share-before Pil-
grim's Pride announced inter-


est in acquiring Gold Kist in
August, soared to $20 imme-
diately afterward. The stock
has remained at about that .
le el ever since, trading at
$20.65 Tuesday afternoon. In
a press release, Pilgrim's
Pride argues that the actual
value of Gold Kist stock is'
only about $14 a share.
Bekkers told the Democrat
Sept. 18.that even should a .
merger occur, it would be '
business as usual for Gold
Kist employees and poultry
producers. "If they were to
buy us, they still need good
employees and good.grow-
ers." he said. However. it is
not clear how compensation
and pension packages might
change in the event of a

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor:
As a relatively new resident of Suwannee County,
you may feel that I am not the best person to be ex-
pressing the following sentiments. Ho\k ever, having
lived in.urban Central Florida for 28 years and having
relocated to the Live Oak area two years ago. [.feel I
must express my sadness at what appears tobe a lack
of appreciation for this beautiful area in which we feel.
so privileged to live. Does it take a recent "'transplant"
to recognize the boundless beauty of this area, and to
value it? .. .
I just spent my Sunday afternoon picking up litter o
along the county road where we live. This "bounty"
included a broken bag of about 40 dirty baby diapers.
multiple beer bottles, a shredded telephone directory,
* Styrofoam fragments from a cooler, foil paper, food ,
wrappers, etc. You get the picture, I'mn sure. My hus-
band and I filled three huge garbage bags in a distance
of approximately one mile. Granted, we live ori a cut-
through that leads to one of the garbage. recycling ar-
eas of our county, but it is difficult to believe that any-
one could not notice that theyxwere spewing trash for
miles en route to the dump! ,.
Prior to moving here rwo years ago. my husband and.
I happily traveled three and a half hours from Semi-
nole County to Suwannee County to visit our son and
his family and to enjoN paddling the beautiful rivers
and hiking some of the best trails in all of Florida. It is
difficult to understand how those who are surrounded
by such a beautiful environment do not seem to value
what they have..
We greatly appreciate the fact that the county pro-
vides mowing several times per year, but with all the
litter on the roadway s. the 10 pieces of paper, foam,
etc. becomes 50 or more when mowed over! Could no-
tification be provided to residents.prior to mowing, or
a schedule posted in the newspaper to give residents
an. opportunity to clean the trash before the mow ing
commences? Possibly organizing volunteers to police .
roadways in, their area could serve to resolve the prob-

,Could we not all make a renewed commitment to do
our part as individuals to maintain our county and re-
tain the beauty that we are so blessed to share? What
are we teaching our children when we throw trash out
the window of our vehicles, or fail to take the time to
secure garbage in transporting to the dump sites? We
are, after all, only stewardsof the world in which we
live. To beless than good stew ards is to be undeserv-
ing of the beauty that abounds in ofir county.

GUEST COMMENTARY


. Hi,
.My name is Cooper, and I live at.
the Suwannee County Animal
Shelter in NMcAlpin. My foster '
mom is writing this for me, for bb-
vious reasons. I was brought to the
shelter when a kind human found
me in the county landfill in a pile
of tires and rescued me. My sister
arid I had been dumped there. (at
about 5-6 weeks of age) but they
found her just.oyer a week before
they found me. She got a home
while I suffered in the dump with
no food or water. By the time I was
found, I was too sick to do much of
anything. I was loaded with worms
and fleas, and was dehydrated and
malnourished. I was scheduled to
be put to sleep. My foster mom
asked to be able to try and save
me, and was given permission. She.
worked very hard; brought me

the shelter. I couldn't eat much at
. first, but I tried. She brought meds
for me with her food money, be-
cause the shelter just doesn't have
enough funding to buy many meds.
I got better, and was on the road to
recovery when I had a setback and
almost died second time. My
mom brought me special foods and
fed me small pieces by hand,,
rocked me in her arms while she
.sat and held me, wrapped in a tow-
el, by the fish pond. I fought to
stay alive as hard as she fought to
keep me with her, and I made it. I
am ready now to go to a forever
home thanks to all the kind humans
at the shelter who care for me
every day.
I have seen a lot at the- shelter in
my time there, and know how very
lucky I am to have survived. Two
small puppies, smaller than me,
were found at another dump not
long after I was brought in. One .
was almost gone, the other was
awake, crying and in great distress.,
I heard one human say that there


w ere so many maggots under
their skin it looked like their
skin was bubbling. Then they all

only the humans came back. But

ter, so we have a better chance
to. get help. hae a place to come
and rehab, and where we can
stay longer to find a new honie.
It would also have a vet, so we
could get medical care, all our
.shots, ,spayed and neutered, and.
any help we need before we find
our new homes. Life the.way it
should be...
.There are some humans in town
who think there is no animal prob-
'lem, that.we don't need a bigger
shelter. My mom will be the first to
say ... go out into the real world of
Suwannee County ... ask people ...
look around ... look at the conve-
nience stores, the dumpsters, on the'
sides of roads, in the middle of
some roads, in ditches, in the
dumps ... anywhere you look ... ask
the people who live here ... have
you ever had an animal or a litter
'of animals dumped on' your proper-
ty ... sometimes in the middle of
the night, sometimes in broad day-
light ... just because you own a
farm, and some misguided people
think it's okay to dump their excess
on you ... that you can handle more.
animals. Have you ever found an .
animal wandering around, having
obviously been dumped, and, tried
to help by getting it off the street to
safety? Have you ever tried to find
homes for them, and called the:
shelter, only to be toJd they have
no room?, That you can bring it in,
but it will be put to sleep because
they have no place' to put more.
Think it's frustrating? Think how
we feel ... we live it every day, and
they die every few days. Ever had
to put your animal down? Your dog


or cat got old, lived a great long
life, and it was time to "do the
right thing for them?" Ours don't
get that option, and it's something
our volunteers want to change for
them. Next time you're-hugging .
your beloved critter, think of Ani-
mal Control, struggling to help
those less fortunate, having to put
down litters of day old kitteris and
their mommas, and litters of pup-
pies and their.mommas, healthy
older dogs and cats, all because
they have inadequate facilities.
Animal Control has. a goal in sight,
with plans and some funds for the
new addition ... and we need your
help ... Suwannee County has an
animal problem, and it's only going
to get bigger as the county grows.
You can help us by stepping up and
speaking out. Don't Wait for them
to come to you, it may never hap-
pen. You don't need to clean a litter
box or wash a kennel, volunteers
do that with love. We need you to
let the folks know that the commu-
nity is in need, and turn the prob-
lem into something positive.
Everyone reading this has a voice,
and we need you to use it to save
our lives. Thanks for any help you
can give to support this cause,
With love and puppy. kisses,

Florida's workforce training programs


rank in nation's top 10 states


Florida ranks among the top'
10 states with the best work-
force training programs, ac-
cording to a recently released
poll by Expansion Manage-
ment magazine.
"Florida's programs have
'been business driven from the
start," says Workforce Florida,
Inc. Chairman Katherine Wil- -
son, "That means our training
incentives continually evolve
to ensure they effectively ad-,
dress a business' need'for
timely, customized training us-
ing different, and sometimes
non-traditional. nietbods."
-In an article that appears in
the July'August issue of the
national business publication,
Florida is ranked No.. 10 for
the overall quality of its work-
force training incentive pro-
grams. More than 80 corporate
site consultants wpre polled by
the magazine. Alabama was
ranked No. 1.
Florida's Quick Response.
Training (QRT) and Incum-'
bent Worker Training (IWT)
grant programs were major
contributors to the states high
ranking. Both programs are di-
rected b\ \orkforce Florida.
Inc., and aimed at improving '
workers' skills and the com-
petitiveness of Florida busi-
nesses. -
The QRT program provides
grants for customized skills
training for new Florida busi-,,
nesses or existing companies/
that are expanding. Since its
inception in 1993, the program
has pumped more than $60
million into hew skills devel-
opment targeting about
100,000 workers.
Started in 1999, the IWT
.program reimburses existing
Florida businesses for costs
associated with upgrading the
skills of their full-time em-
ployees. It has directed about
$14 million to improving the
skills of more than 65,000
workers at 593 businesses.
"Workforce training incen-
tives clearly have a direct im-
pact on the competitiveness of
a state,", says Expansion Man-
agement Managing Editor Ken
Krizner. "Florida's top 10
ranking is a testament to its
'ability to provide companies
with a well-trained, highly
skilled workforce."
According to the magazine,
"Programs are judged not only
in terms of their financial val-
ue, but also in terms of ease .of
usage and applicability. In oth-
er words; some programs may
have a high value, in theory,
but are of little practical use to
most companies. Likewise,
some programs may-be both
useful and valuable, but are so
wrapped up in red tape re-
quirements that they' are ex-
tremely difficult to actually'
use."
This is the eighth year the


magazine has published the
n\orkforce training programs
ranking and the first time
Florida has made it into the
top 10. In 2000 and 2002,
Florida was ranked No. 15.
Expansion Management circu-
lates to 45,000 executives, in-
cluding CEOs and economic
development leaders.

Wool: From The Lamb To The Loom


It's How


Inside the library last Thursday, ladies dressed in outfits of
yesteryear were busily making a quilt or working an old-
fashioned loom. But outside the building in a small pen was a live
lamb, loaned to the library by Mrs. Frank W. Walsh.


The lamb's purpose, explained library director Dan lfales, was
to show first hand to kids where the wool comes from, hou it's
transformed into thread on the sptlning wheel, and how it's
made Into wearables on the loom.


They Did It
.... '" 'F "*':- '*."^

100 Years Ago
By Frank Dorman
Live Oak youngsters got a real taste of the past Thursday,. ..
during the Suwannee River Regional Library's contribution to
Live Oak's Centennial celebration n t
They learned that wool comes from shebp, and that It's spun
into yarn and woven into many different useful iams
ShelaHiss demonstrated the use of a Four-Harness Jack loom :'
while she fashioned a purse from various colors and thicknesses
Of yarn, The loom is actually a relatively new one but it's pat-
terbed after a much older model.
BESIDE THE LOOM WAS A modern-day spinning wheel that'
about a third as large as Its predecessors. There as a live lamb
parked outside the library so that children could see how the
entire process works
A sheep's wool is sheared, then washed and carded (brushed so
that fibers are all in one direction). Alter that it's spun on the
spinningg wheel and then woven on the loom. The loom and wheel
Oere donated for-the occasion by Merri Belland, artist-ln-
* residence at the Stephen Foster Center.
ALTHOUGH SMALLER THAN THE old-time looms, it works ,
quite well in making such things as-.ablecloths, wall hangings
'and pillows. ". ....

Every week they get closer.
With the clock winding down
and a chance to send the game
into overtime, the Bulldogs
drove to the Gainesville High.
37 before running out of steam
Sept. 8. The following week,
with a chance to win, they
made it to the Madison three in
the final minutes. Friday, facing
district foe Raines, the Dogs
came within one foot of cap-
ping an incredible comeback.
Instead they got their first Dis-
trict 3-3A loss of the year, a 21-
19 heartbreaker to the Vikings
in Jacksonville.

Columbia Motorsports Park hosts Sunbelt Super Lates series


Submitted
June 17 marked the first appearance of the
Sunbelt Super Late Model drivers at Columbia
Motorsports Park in the 2006 season. That night
fans saw 20 Super Lates compete for the win
with Wayne Anderson of Wildwood setting fast
time with a 16.851. Tim Russell, Jeff Scofield,
Mike Bresnahan and Chris Fontaine completed
the top five.
Anderson, who says he does not have the best


of luck when pulling pills for the start, pulled the
number seven pill putting Chet Morrison of New
Orleans on the pole for the 125 lap race.
On the start Jeff Choquette spent little time
taking over the lead and once he got it, he never
let go of it, leading restart after restart. In the end
it was Choquette, Scofield, Bresnahan, Jason
Boyd and Rich Pratt.
When the green flag flies this Saturday night
at Columbia Motorsports Park, Scofield leads the


points for the Sunbelt Series. But only eight
points behind Scofield is the winner of the June
race, Choquette. He is ready to defend his win
and to move up in the points standings. Cho-
quette also stands second in points for the All
American Challenge Series at Desoto Super
Speedway.

Collis Givens took the open-

with a fumbled pitch-out at

Q: How new is the idea of cosmetic dentistry?
A: Cosmetic dentistry, it seems, is not
something new. And it's not just for movie
stars. An archaeological exploration in Mexico
found recently that thousands of years ago
ancient Mexicans were being fitted with
dramatic dentures for ceremonial purposes.
Researches found human remains on which
the upper teeth had been ground down so
they could be fitted with animal teeth wolf or
panther teeth for certain ceremonies. Fitting
humans with teeth of beasts of prey became
more common centuries later in the Mayan
age. Researches have also fourid in Mexico
instances of turquoise fitted into teeth and


various examples of files teeth.
The quest for perfect teeth and flashy
adornment continues today. Tooth jewelry is
the lasted trend, replacing dental grills as the
way to make a fashion statement in your
mouth. The jewels are meant to be attached
by a dentist with a composite substance.
They're designed to last from 8 months to two
years or more. Many dentist are not fans of
this practice, pointing out that plaque and
bacteria could collect around the jewels and
create problems. Talk with your dentist about
acceptable ways to improve the appearance,
of your teeth.

"This broad partnership

One-half of all endangered

rolled landowners that no ad-
ditional regulatory restrictions
will result if woodpecker pop-
ulations increase.
"We look forward to devel-
oping long-term partnerships
with private landowners to
continue the recovery of this
endangered species," said
FWC Executive Director Ken
Haddad.
Biologists released several
pairs of red-cockaded wood-
peckers to new homes at Tall
Timbers Station. Relocating
birds from areas with. excess
birds to parts of the state with
critically small populations-a
process called translocation-is
a major factor in red-cockad-
ed woodpecker recovery.
Florida hosts approximately
one-quarter of the nation's
red-cockaded woodpecker
population and classifies the
bird as a species of special
concern.
"Red-cockaded woodpecker
populations have declined
drastically, and one of the
main reasons they are begin-
ning to recover is because of
techniques like translocation,"
Tall Timbers Biologist Jim
Cox said. "The ability to do
this on private lands will give
new hope for their recovery."
Florida is the seventh state
to sign a Safe Harbor Agree-
ment for red-cockaded wood-
peckers with the FWS. In the
other six states, more than 240
landowners have enrolled
620,000 'acres, with at least
500 groups of woodpeckers in
the program.

HOUSE OF


HAZARDS
During Fire Prevention Week, take time to
inspect your home for common household
fire hazards like the ones shown here.


Get rid of stored newspapers and other trash which could start
or spread a fire more quickly.


Never store highly flammable liquids, like paint thinner or
gasoline, inside your home.

Never smoke in bed. Matches and lighters should be stored
safely out of children's reach.

Don't overload electrical outlets. Keep electrical appliances
safely away from sources of water.

Use a screen to contain fireplace sparks and keep all
. flammable materials a safe distance away.

'Test smoke alarms monthly and replace batteries twice a year.


Never leave burning candles unattended.

POP Quiz
Can you find two more fire hazards in this house?.

1. Look in the bedroom. Loose or frayed cords on lamps
and any other electrical devices should be repaired or
replaced.

2. Look in the kitchen. Cooking food should never be left
unattended on the stovetop or in the oven.

Florida She

Staff

It's that time again when good friends
gather on the banks of the famous Suwannee
River to celebrate the birthday of the Florida
Sheriffs Boys Ranch. This year the Boys
Ranch will observe its 49th birthday with an
open house, barbecue, horse show and other
events Oct 4-8.
People of all ages will take part this week-
end in the 49th Annual Boys Ranch Open
House Anniversary Celebration. From riding
events and horse shows to award ceremonies
and fellowship, the Boys Ranch Open House
recognizes the history and traditions of Flori-
da's best charity.
In 1957, two of Florida's sheriffs shared a,
vision of helping at-risk children develop
into productive citizens. Over the past 49 .
years, many kids have walked beneath the fa-
mous archway of the Boys Ranch in Live Oak
to learn and live the work, study, 'pray, play
philosophy. Over time, the Youth Ranches ex-
panded its residential and camping programs
throughout the state, serving more than 80,000
boys and girls since it began in 1957.
The positive impact of the Youth Ranches is
attributed to the leadership of Florida's sher-
iffs, the generous contributions from thousands
of faithful donors and a foundation of core val-
ues set forth by its founders and framers.
The special grand entry event will take place
on Saturday, Oct. 7, beginning at 11 a.m. at the
Clay Mavericks Arena where a three-day horse
show is expected to have attract more than 600
entries. Sign-up for the horse show begins at
noon Friday, Oct. 6, with games beginning at 2
p.m. The grand entry event will be followed
by a delicious barbecue lunch served next to
the Suwannee River. Admission is free to all
events; barbecue tickets will be sold at $3
each.
All activities will take place at the Boys
Ranch north of Live Oak off CR 195.
Among the act\ meiie- \wll be the Boyv Ranch

AND THE GOSPEL MUST BE PUBLISHED AMONG ALL NATIONS MARK 13:10

Suwannee Valley


Do we know His voice?


By Pam Campbell
"The watchman opens the gate for him
and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls
his own sheep 'by name and leads them
out. When he has brought out all his own,
he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep
follow him because they know his voice.
However, they will never follow a'
stranger; in .fact, they will run away from.
him because they do not recognize a
stranger's voice. Jesus used this figure of
speech, but they did not understand what
He was telling them." John 10:3-6.
I wonder how many of us really under-
stand what He is telling us. Tesus wants us
to only -go through the gate when He
opens it for us. We need to know His voice,
so we will not make' the mistake of follow-
ing the wrong voice. You see, theenemy
will always try, to get us to believe that his
voice is that of our Shepherd Jesus. He
may come in the form of another person, a
temptation, or many other different ways
he thinks will get your attention on him
and away from the Shepherd.
We teach .children not to talk to
strangers, Jesus is teaching us, his children
riot to follow the voice of a stranger, but to
run from it, and follow him. How can we
know which is the voice of a stranger, and
which is the voice of God? Jesus explains it
to us very clearly again in verses 7-11.
"Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you
truth, I am the gate for the sheep. All who
ever came before me were thieves and rob-
bers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I
am the gate; whoever, enters through Me
will be saved. He w ill come in and go out,
and find pasture, The thief comes only to
steal and kill and: destroy; I have come that'
they may have life, and have it to the full.
I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shep-
hgr.d lays down His life for the sheep." Je-'
sus. tells us that He is our gate, that if we
follow Him through the gate. wee will be
saved. You see, He says that stranger is the
thief who wants to steal from us, to kill us,.
and ultimately to destroy us. The devil
does not want us to be happy; He does not
%want us, to have God's blessings in our
lives, he wants to destroy us and kill us,
BUT, Jesus, came that %we can live full,
abundant lives. He laid down His life for
us; His 'sheep. If we will! just follow the
voice of our Good,:Shepherd. we will be
Saved.
You isee; Jesus knows His sheep. He
knows all of us; He knows each of us by
name. Some of the sheep rmay have gone
astray but he is still waiting with the gate
open, hoping that all His sheep will listen
to His voice and not that of the stranger
who will lead them to destruction. I know
many people I meet seem to think that they
" are following the good shepherd. They
think because they go to His house on Sun-
day for church, or because they do good
deeds to.help others, they know the good
shepherd. Then there are people I know
who say they don't think they are good


enough to be saved, that they have not
lived a good enough life. Jesus gave His
life for us so we can be saved. It has noth-
ing to do with how good or bad we are, or
what we do in our lives other than the one
important thing, which is to follow the
Good Shepherd through the gate and be
saved.
In John 10: 14-15 we read the following
words from Jesus "I am the good shep-
herd; I know my sheep and my sheep
know me just as the father knows me and
I know the father and I lay down my life
for the sheep." There it is again! Those
wonderful. marvelouts w-ords of Jesus, he is
the good shepherd and he knows his sheep
and God the father knows him!
When you got up this morning did you'
think about the Good Shepherd. Did you
listen for His voice. Did you think to ask
Him to guide yoti in your footsteps today?
Do you,know His voice?
Jesus tells us how to know His voice in
John 10:24-30 "The Jews gathered around
Him saying, "How long will you. keep us.
in suspense? If yod are the Christ, tell us
plainly." Jesus answered, "I did tell you,
but you do not believe. The miracle I do in
my Father's name speak for Me, but you
do not believe because you are not My
sheep. [My sheep.listen to My voice; I know
them and they follow Me. I give them eter-
nal life, they shall never perish; no one cant
snatch them out of My hand. My Father,
who has given them to Me, is greater than
all; no one can snatch them out of my Fa-
ther's hand..I and the Father are one." It is


so wonderful to know that God the Father
and Jesus the Son are One! I am sure that if
you are a child of God you get excited as I
do when you read that when we follow the
voice of our Shepherd Jesus, we have eter-
nal life and no one; can snatch us out of
God's hand. If you do not know the Shep-
herd's voice and do, not. believe as, Jesus
spoke of to the Jews in verse 24, I pray you
will take heed to this article and listen to
the voice -of' the' Good Shepherd calling
your name. He longs for you to be one of
His sheep that knows his voice and follows
him to eternal life. Remember, He promis-
es you will have a life. to the full or an.
abundant life!
All of us who are His sheep must know
many that do not know the voice of the
Good Shepherd; they are lost, not saved.,
They have never found the Good Shep-
herd, or maybe they listened to thevoice of
a stranger, the, devil and let him snatch.
them from God's hand. You see when we
are following the good shepherd no one
and nothing can snatch us a\\ay from our
:YFather, but when we walk withoutt the
good shepherd, and follow the voice of the
devil; ,or, stranger we can perish. We all
need to share with our families, our
friends, co-workers, neighbors, classmates,
students or anyone we meet that Jesus is
the good shepherd, arid they need to fol-
low Him through the gate and hear His'
voice so they to will have eternal life! Don't
wait until it is convenient or until you have
more time, or until you learn more about
the Bible. Don't make any more excuses.


Take Courage

At one time or another, we all haVe
been in situations that require us to
muster up courage and face our
fears. Simply stated, courage is rising
above our fears and taking charge of
our lives during difficult times.
The Bible tells us that we will have p. u
tribulations in this- world, but that we -
'hould be of good cheer, because .
God has overcome the world. /
(John 16:33) Being courageous '.
comes in man\- different Was.
Firemen who must enter a burning "
building to save someone, or police
officers who confront known crimi-
nals are examples of people who pos-
sess a special type of bravery and
courtitage. And although most of us
will never have to enter aburring
building or confront known criminals, just doing and saying what is right in our
daily,lives also often requires courage. Trying to correct an injustice, asking for
someone's forgiveness, and even expressing our appreciation to someone may also
require courage. The Lord wants us to be courageous and to have peace-in'our
hearts as we face our daily responsibilities. Andwe should be comforted, because
He told us that He would never leave us or f6rsake us, and He is always with us. ,
both during our trials and our jo s.Be watchful stand firm in your faith, be coura-
geous; be strong.
Let.all that you do be done in love..
R.S.V.1 Corinthiains 16:13-14


Tell them now before it is too late. Every-
day, everywhere people are in despair,
people are dying, there are people looking
for the right voice to follow. Won't you
take the time to tell them about the Good
Shepherd who laid down, His life for
them?
I am reminded of a song many of you
have probably heard called: "People Need
The Lord." You remember these words:

Every day they pass me by,
I can see it in their eye.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?

On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
SLaughter hides their silent cries,...
Only less hears.

People need the Lord,
' people need the Lord.
,At the end of broken dreams,
He's the open door.
People need the Lord,
people need the Lord.
When will we realize --
people need the Lord? .

We are called to take His light
To a world whe'e wrong seems right.
What would be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who's lost?

Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
The\ must hear the words of life -
Only, we can share.

People need the Lord,;
people need the Lord
*IAt the end of broken dreams, 1
He's the. open door.
People need the Lord,',
people need the Lord.
When will we realize
that we must give our lives,
For people need the'Lord.
People need the Lord.,
Songwriter Greg Nelson,

1\Maybe the word- to that song are talking
about you. You need to listen carefully to
,the voice you are following to see if it is
leading you in the. wrong direction. All
you have to do is listen for the voice of the
Good Shepherd and call on His'name. He
will take away your private pain, your de-
spair, your grief, He. hears your cries, and
He.,will fix your broken dreams and open
the door. Go on through the door or gate
as Jesus calls it in the book of John, all peo-
ple really do need the Lord, even you and
1.
"My sheep listen to my voice; I know
them, and they follow Me." John 10:27 The
Shepherd knows you by name. Do you
know the Shepherd's voice?

- The Shepherd and His Sheep


By Pam Campbell
"The watchman opens the gate for him and
the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own
sheep by name arid leads them out. When he
has brought out all His own, he goes on ahead
of them, and his sheep follow him because
they know his voice. However, they will never
follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away
from him because they do not recognize a
stranger's voice." John 10:3-5 We know that,
we should not to talk to strangers. Jesus is
teaching us, His children, not to follow the
voice of a stranger, but to run from it, and fol-
low Him.
You see, Jesus knows His sheep, we are His
sheep, He knows all of us; He knows each of
us by name; Jesus is our shepherd, and He
wants to take care of His sheep. He wants you
to know His voice and follow'His voice in-


stead of the voice of a stranger, or the devil.
Just like a shepherd out in the fields watch-
ing over His sheep, God loves and cares for
you. You know how a shepherd takes care of,
his flock of sheep. He leads them to shallow
streams of water, and lets them eat from the
grassy meadows. A shepherd has to be really
brave. They have toiprotect their sheep in all
kinds of weather, keep them away from dan-
gerous, rocky cliffs and protect them from
wild animals. Every night the shepherd counts
his sheep and has to guard them while they
sleep. He knows every one of his sheep by
their name.
In God's Word, the Bible, we read God's
promise. "He tends His flock like a'shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries
them close to His heart." Isaiah 40:11 You see
God cares for you so much, just like a:shep-


herd cares for His lambs.
If we know Jesus, we are His sheep. We
need to tell our families, our friends, neigh-.
bors, and everyone we meet that Jesus is the.
good shepherd There is a song you might
know called "People Need the Lord." The'
chorus to the song goes like this:
People need the Lord, people need the.
Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open
door.
People need the Lord. people need the Lord.
.When \\ill \e realize --.people need the
Lord?"
Try to. tell others about the good shepherd,

Jesus. There are so many people who need to
kno%\ Him. If you don't tell them, they may
never find Him. E\ en body needs the Lord to
be their Shepherd
Maybe you need to ~lten carefully to the
voice you are following to see ifit is leading
y.ou inthe wrong direction. All you hade to do.
is listenrfor the oice of the Good Shepherd
and call on His name. He hears our cries, and
He will fix your broken dreams. God promises
us in His word "My sheep listen to my voice;
I knio\ them, and the\ follow Me." John
10:2"' The Shepherd knows \Lou by name. you
are His little lamb. Do you know your Shep-.
herd's voice? .


Don't Waste Your Energy
With Negativity

Anger can be a useful emotion when it
allows us to set things right or to estab-
lis-h necessary boundaries. Therefore
there are tinmees when anger is e-en justi-
fied and appropriate.
The real difficulty is getting angry at
the right time, then directing our anger
at the appropriate person and to the
right degree. and finally moving on to
other more productive pursuits. Too of- *b'
ten we hold our anger in and then
seethe -about it for Ihours, days or even
weeks.1..
Anger can be incredibly debilitating,
sapping us of energy and not allowhing'
us to f6cus on more productive pursuits. And sometimes, while we are deciding if
we can risk expressing our anger at the appropriate person \e nay direct it at the'
.wrong people, such as our fanuly or friends. If we are justifiably angry-with some-
one .we must first decide what the right amount of anger is, or more precisely, what
we should actually say or do about the matter at hand. Once we have made that.-de-
cision, we need to have the cotirageof our convictions and say what needs to be
said being careful not to under- or overstate our case. And finally, then we must
move on; life is waiting.A man of quick temper acts foolishly, but a mean of discre-
tion is patient.

Consider your family's health


when weatherizing your home


Every fall the federal government recommends that Americans
weatherize their homes in order to reduce the amount of energy
needed for heating and cooling. What we often neglect during this
process, however, are the steps we should, also take to minimize the
dangers from pollution sources inside our homes.
In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence
has indicated that the air within homes can be more seriously
polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most
industrialized cities. According to the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) people spend approximately 90 percent of their time
indoors, especially during the cold winter months. Thus, for many
people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air
pollution indoors than outdoors.
Measures such as installing storm windows, weather stripping,
caulking and blown-in wall insulation can reduce the amount of
outdoor air infiltrating into a home. Consequently, after
winterizing, concentrations of indoor air pollutants from sources
inside the home can increase.
According to Gerry Gagnon, product & market manager for
Venmar Ventilation, first clues of poor indoor air in your home are
the signs of inadequate ventilation, such as stuffy air, moisture
condensation on cold surfaces, or mold and mildew growth. "It's
crucial that additional weatherization measures should not be
undertaken until these problems have been corrected," he advised.
In most cases, homes have an overly humid basement that breeds
molds and other unhealthy micro-organisms.
Most homes have more than one source that contributes to indoor
air pollution. Some of these sources can include smoke, dust, pet
dander, radon, mold and other pollutants which can pose serious
health risks and contribute to respiratory disease, asthma and even
lung cancer.


Fortunately, there are steps that you can
take both to reduce the risk from these
existing sources and to prevent new
problems from occurring. I '


Here are some tips to consider: .
Operate bathroom fans, if present, to
remove moisture from showers (these
fans should be ducted to the outside of *.",.' 4
the home).
When a wood fire is present, a
window should always be kept open -
especially in a tightly sealed, energy
efficient -house.
Invest in a quality range hood that .
will offer high-performance ventilation to effectively eliminate
pollution, excess-moisture and gas emissions in the kitchen from
every day cooking.
Install a carbon monoxide detector on every floor of the house.
Make sure a home's roof and windows are in good shape. Water
leaks, condensation and elevated levels of humidity may not be
visible, but moisture in interior wall spaces can encourage mold
growth and structural degradation.
For optimal air quality, Gagnon recommends you invest in an
air exchanger system that will both filter out harmnfiul pollutants and"
distribute fresh tempered air throughout the home, such as the air
exchanger system from Venmar. It combines heat recovery
ventilation and HEPA filtration. The HEPA filter \ workss to trap
airborne allergens and assists in distributing fresh air throughout
the home. More details on the benefits of ventilation and filtration
are available at www.venmar.ca.

STORMS & OUTAGES
Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond.
When the storm hits, our employees roll up their sleeves and go to work to
restore power interrupted by the sort's fury.


Customers who lose power should
contact SVEC. When the call is
answered, the location of the outage is
recorded automatically by, SVEC
automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a
company representative if available.
SVEC brings in .additional employees
to respond to customer calls during
major storms, and it has dramatically
increased the number of incoming d
telephone lines for its outage-
reporting system. But customers may A A
experience busy signals and longer- i /
than-normal waits during times of
high callvolumes.

Here are a few tips to follow for yoUr safety: t
* If someone In your home is dependent on medical equipment
requiring electricity, make arrangements in advance for and
alternative power source for emergencies.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home.
Have an electrician Inspect your system before turning the power
back on after flooding.'
* Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or
while standing on a wet or damp surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report its location.
. Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near
downed power lines.
* Plug only Individual appliances Into portable generators. Never
connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your home's
electrical system.
* If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation,
register in advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency
Management In your county.


e


I i
* To prepare for outages, it Is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for f ashlights and radios.
* If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use It In well-
ventilated areas and only plug in Individual appliances. Never
connect a generator to a wall outlet of your home or building's
electrical system since.that can tause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-threatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running It for only a few hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential Items you would need in case you are
evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of
these Items could Include medications, Insulin, contact
lensestsupplies, extra eyeglasses and denture needs.
If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting it to SVEC office in order to give our
automatic equipment time to restore power.
Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and Information from SVEC.
