A zoning change which
would allow the Rockland
Palace on Railroad Avenue
to reopen may be vetoed by
Mayor Sonny Nobles, No-
bles said Wednesday. The
bar was closed by the city in
January due to numerous
code violations. However,
because the site is not zoned
commercial, a zoning
change is necessary for the
city to issue a permit to
bring the building up to
code. The site is now zoned
residential but the Palace
was "grandfathered in" to
the area decades earlier,

Hard work



and wit

Friends, family members

remember Lillian Phillips

By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com

Lillian Lee Howell Phillips, who
passed away last month at the age of
96, was as well known for her work
ethic as for her sharp wit.
Phillips and her late husband, J.
Marvin Phillips, a former Live Oak
mayor, founded Suwannee Laundry
Company on East Howard Street more
than 70 years ago.
The hours were long to say the
least, daughter LeNelle Mor-
gan, of Live Oak, said Tuesday.
"She would go to work from
5:30 in the morning until 5:30
at night. She told us (her chil- Lillian Lee Howell Phillips
dren) that she was disappointed
in our work ethic because we retired," Morgan laughed.
Morgan said her mother used to love working in her garden

Teen remains critical

Marguerite Kines still in a coma


By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
Marguerite Kines re-
mained in critical condition
at Shands at UF Thursday.
Kines was critically hurt
when the car in which she
was a passenger ran off the
road and struck several trees
March 29.
Kines was placed in a
drug-induced coma due to a
head injury. Her father,
Glenn Kines, said doctors
hope to begin bringing her
out of the coma soon.
Kines, a senior at Branford
High, makes A's and B's,
said her father. Glenn Kines
noted his daughter has an in-
terest in nursing. "She's plan-
ning on going into nursing at


a rehab
center in
Lake
City," he
sa id
Tuesday.
She
and her
brother
Charles Marguerite Kines
Glenn,
11, "stand upfor each other"
should something come be-
tween them, he said.
A family friend said the
family needs prayers and
support right now. Glenn
Kines' mother passed away
three weeks before the acci-
dent and Marguerite Kines'
grandfather, her mother's fa-
ther, had a stroke about a
week before the crash.

Blue-eyed Grass
(Sisyrinchium angustifolipuyn, ...,,,,


By Carolyn Saft
Suwannee River Partnership
Education Coordinator/Horticulture
Agent


Spring flowers are everywhere
providing us an array of colors and
fragrances. We all have our favorites and
for me it is the layered look of the
dogwood tree and the bounty of
wildflowers.
The question sometimes arises with
clients, "What is the difference between a
weed and a wildflower?" A weed is
defined by the Weed Science Society of
America as "a plant growing where it is
not desired." A wildflower is defined by
the Florida Wildflower Advisory Council


as a "flowering plant species native to
Florida with emphasis on herbaceous
annuals and perennials." Here is an
example of where a plant can be both. A
gentleman came into our office this week
with a handful of Drunmmond's Phlox
(Phlox drummondii) one of my favorite
flowers. He asked "Will this weed make
my horses sick if they eat it?" We looked,
up the information and decided my
wildflower his weed was not poisonous
to livestock and so the wildflower/weed
became grazing forage for his horse.
How's that for multiple use?
The drive in the spring or summer
between Live Oak and Branford on LUS
Highway 129 is a feast for the eyes as you
look on the sides of the roads at all the
wildflowers. These plants arc beneficial
for controlling soil erosion and providing
habitat for pollinators. In addition, the
Florida Department of Transportation
plants wildflowers instead of grass along
roadways to help reduce mowing


frequency, which reduces maintenance
costs.
I always look forward to a homestead
south of McAlpin where the front yard is
covered by a sea of Drummond's Phlox
right now and then will be followed by a
spectacular show of Tickseed (Coreopsis),
which by the way is our state's official
wildflower. I like this flower so much that
I named my golden retriever Coreopsis.
We call her Corie for short.
I stopped one day at the edge of field
and was taking pictures of Corie with the
Coreopsis field in the background. Not
wanting to get in trouble for trespassing, I
stayed close to the road. A lady drove up
and said "it's OK if you go closer, it's my
folks' place and they are used to people
stopping and taking pictures". So could
wildflowers also be a tourist destination
and an opportunity for Agri-tourism?
Look for these other plants as you drive

What is the difference between a Cappuccino'and a Latte?
A cappuccino is a serving of espresso with about the same amount DriveThru
of milk and a rather large amount of stiff foam (or frothy) milk
dolloped on top. The foam is often topped with cinnamon powder or
shaved chocolate. A latte is a serving of espresso with about three ter,
times as much milk, topped with a shorter head of foam than a
cappuccino. So a latte is milder, has a milkier taste and it is not
unusual for people to request it be served with no foam. ,

BIBLE VERSE
You see, at just the right time, when we were still
powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will
anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man
someone might possibly dare to die. But God
demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were
still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8

Our View, which appears in
Wednesday editions of the
Democrat, is formed by that
board.


Want to vent?

Our hotline is open 24/7.

Suwannee Countians, it's time to speak your mind! How
do you do that? By calling the Suwannee Democrat Rant &
Rave hotline! The hotline never closes and is your way to let
it out.

Why would someone come forward and jeopardize
their job about OMI dumping thousands of gallons of raw
sewage into our storm water system if it wasn't true? Who
told OMI where to dump it and how many times has this
happened and we don't know about it? Whistleblowers
are rewarded and praised when they save you, the taxpay-
ers, money or save our environment. Why isn't it that way
in the city of Live Oak? Does the city council have our
best interests at heart or those of OMI?

It seems like every city vote comes up 3-2. The two
warned of the conflict of interest when the city hired OMI
to inspect and police its own work. Does anyone truly be-
lieve OMI was going to find themselves guilty of any
,wrongdoing? Something is wrong when the city public
,works director asks for an investigation that the city is not
.allowed to see. It cannot be a good situation when OMI
workers, many who are ex-city workers and live in
Suwannee County, are forbidden to talk to the local coun-
cilmen.

Someone is partly right. The NAACP and the county at-
torney run the county. When this countywide vote issue
came before them they should have done what they agreed
to do back in January '08 and get an opinion from the fed-
eral judge. They paid two lawyers $25,000 and what did
they get? One commissioner did his job and voted to get
an opinion from the judge. Four voted to overrule the vot-
ers. It seems like four commissioners and the county at-
torney owe the county $5,000 each for services not re-
ceived. This whole issue still has a funny smell and we
can only hope the voters will respond as such.

In response to the April 4 rant about the library and the
skateboarders, I think it would be a better idea instead of
sending them home and making enemies of our teenagers,
that we provide them a safe place for them use their skate-
boards.

It really would be nice if the Suwannee County School
Board would raise its millage rates so that the schools
don't have to have fundraisers throughout the year.

We see adoptable pets in the newspaper. Why don't we
see adoptable children?Which is more important?

There would be very little empty time for school buses
if they were driven by the high school students. They stay
at school all day and then go home, drop off the kids and
then go to the driver's home to stay. Not much down time.

The city public works director, who is also employed by
OMI, when told of allegations of illegal dumping, said
that he would have OMI investigate these allegations.
OMI investigated the allegations and said they did noth-
ing wrong. But they won't release the findings to the city
of Live Oak and the public works director has not even
been given a copy of the investigation he asked for. I think
it's time that the city do an investigatipn. And there is no
reason that our own Suwannee County Sheriff's Depart-
ment couldn't go ahead and do it and finally get an an-
swer, instead of all this political garbage that is going on.

Callers to 208-8314 may express their thoughts, good
or bad, 24/7 about community issues and politics, but
not about private individuals or businesses. If you
prefer, you may e-mail your comments to nf.editori-
al@gaflnews.com. You can let everyone know how you
feel if you will be respectful in how you express your-
self. You don't have to give your name.

I hope everyone had a
very spiritual and enjoyable
Easter. Our family had a
very nice one. I was forced


to eat two big meals that day.
Our numbers at family
events seem to dwindle over
the years for various and un-
derstandable reasons. Easter
came very early this year. It
has always been the rule by BY SONNI
most around here not to
plant your flower or.vegetable gardens until after
Easter. This was a wise practice, especially with East-
er coming so early. I planted my vegetables last week
and my peas and peanuts this week. Hope I didn't do
it too early. Easter occurs the first Sunday after the
fourth full moon of the year. It won't come this early
again for another 200 years. This information was
provided me from research done by my Uncle
Wyman. He needs to spend more time fishing and less
time researching.
Sam, the city's retired drug dog of ten years died re-
cently. He lived out his retirement years with Capt.
Joe Daly and his family. As you can imagine, Joe,
Pam and the girls had gotten mighty attached to Sam.
A memorial service was held for Sam at the Depart-
ment recognizing his many years of service. A DOG-
wood tree was presented to the family to be planted in
memory of Sam. I had never been to a memorial ser-
vice for an animal. It was very interesting and frankly
moving. Thanks to Lynn Hawkins for putting all of
this together. It was a nice occasion.
The National Association of Letter Carriers will
conduct its 16th annual food drive on May 10. This is
the largest one-day collection of food for the needy in
our country. Publix Supermarkets and Campbell's
soup will be mailing out bags in which the donated
food can be placed. Place them on your mailbox on
the 16th. Organizations, not individuals, in our com-
munity designated as food dispensaries, will be eligi-
ble to receive these foods. If you are one of these or-
ganizations, call City Hall and ask the girls to get the
name of your organization along with pertinent infor-
mation to me so it can be forwarded to the appropri-
ate persons. Hopefully, everyone will support this
worthwhile program.
One of the last remaining obstacles in getting the
Sherwood Forest area drainage project started was
taken care of this week. The K-Mart retention pond
was acquired earlier and an easement enabling the
city to get the water to the pond was taken care of this
past week. Hopefully the project can get started soon
with the goal of having completion before hurricane
season arrives. Nothing is easy anymore for individu-
als as well as government agencies. It takes forever to
get things done with all the bureaucratic red tape such
as studies, engineering and permitting. Also, a meet-
ing was held with FDOT concerning the "Pontiac
Place" drainage project.
Renovation of the "Old City Hall" got started this
past week. Demolition to some of the interior got un-
derway. New windows throughout, flooring, plaster
repair and painting of the downstairs office area will
soon follow. This is being done with assistance from
a. Historical Preservation Grant from the State. The
city put up matching funds of $50,000 for the project.
This money came from Community Redevelopment
monies designated for redevelopment projects in the
city. After the contract was approved, there was some


MAYOR'S
CORNER


Y1


$28,000 left in the coffers to
be spent but not covered un-
der the contract. Every pen-
ny of that money needs to be


spent on the building for
restoration purposes. Coun-
Scilman Stewart and I were in
E, Tallahassee for a couple of
days this past week serving
on the lobbying team for the
NOBLES Florida League of Cities in
support of municipalities
and counties in the state. We met with Mr. Wisley in
the Historic Preservation Department and impressed
upon him the need to use these unspent monies on
crucial elements of the restoration not previously cov-
ered by the current contract. He agreed to allow the
city to amend the current contract allowing for the
spending of these funds. We certainly don't want to
forgo spending any of the grant money. We need
every penny to go toward restoration.
On April 25, 1878, the day after the election of the
first officials of the city, a meeting was held to con-
duct the business of the new City of Live Oak. The
first order of business was the acceptance of an act
passed by the legislature in February of 1869 allow-
ing for the establishment of the city. The new city of
Live Oak was off and running. The second ordinance
adopted required persons to appear before the mayor
for the purpose of giving testimony in matters coming
before him. Should a person not appear as ordered,
the mayor could issue an "attachment" against the
body of such witness, and cause him or her to be
brought "forthwith." The person violating this ordi-
nance could be fined not less that $2 and not more
than $50. Should a person not be able to pay the fine,
he or she could be "imprisoned" for up to five days.
The third ordinance deals with decency matters with-
in the city. Evidently there was a lot of "cussing" and
inappropriate gestures taking place even back then.
Sounds like a crime wave was taking place in the city
at that time. I will continue my history of the city in
future Mayor's Corners.
I had the privilege of attending and being a presen-
ter at the 10th Annual Youth Recognition Ceremony
sponsored by Suwannee County's Youth Advocacy
Partnership. Some 38 of our young folks were recog-
nized for their outstanding accomplishments in four-
teen categories of service. It was very pleasing and re-
warding to see so many of our youth being recognized
for their excellence in service. I was especially proud
of my grandson Brandon, who was an award recipi-
ent. A big THANK YOU goes out to the Partnership
and the Drug Free Coalition for their sponsorship in
recognizing these outstanding young people.
Millennium Nights got started last week with a
very sizable crowd. Herold arranged for two out-
standing bands to perform as well as local entertain-
ers. The -second Nights will take place this Friday
evening. The weather is good and the entertainment
excellent. It is a heck of a lot better than staying home
and watching some of the junk on TV. See you there,
Oh yeah, don't forget to wear your seatbelts.
The prom and graduation are just around the corner.
Hopefully parents are thinking about the safety of
their kids. Set some rules and expect them to be fol-
lowed. These are special times and we certainly don't
want them to be marred with a hospital stay and es-
pecially a funeral.

FROM OUR READERS
To the Editor:

I live in the city limits. I have lived at this
address for almost 14 years. I haye never
had any problems with animals getting in
my garbage in all that time. Now there are
constantly dogs running loose without col-
lars in my neighborhood. This past weekend
was spent cleaning garbage up that was all
over my yard.
There are dogs barking all night and re-
cently 1 had to have animal control remove
a family of dogs that had taken residence
under my shed.
Why doesn't the city enforce the leash
law? We need protection and peace of mind.

Mozelle Larkins Seay marks her 96th year


all a ?


Mozelle Larkins Seay celebrated
her 96th birthday March 15 with
family, friends and former employers
(Dr. Donald and Betsy Burch). The
celebration was held in the
fellowship hall at Springfield Baptist
Church, given by her children, Susie
Seay and James Seay. Her oldest
living child, Ruben Larkin and
family, was also able to attend.
It was a blessing to help her
celebrate this occasion. Just being
among family and well-wishers was
an enjoyable time. The love that was
demonstrated for this gathering by
friends was unbelievable.
The time to share comments about
Mozelle was supposed to be after
lunch, but some did so early because
of prior engagements. One of the


After lunch the fun

able to express him or

comments were

early speakers was Commissioner
D.M. Udell. After lunch the fun
began. Everyone was able to express
him or herself as to how Mozelle had


impacted their lives. Some comments
were comical, some were downright
heartwarming, but all were good.
Mozelle is a prayer warrior and
church mother. She rises early every
morning and checks on family and
friends by telephone. Giving advice
is also one of her strong points. She
loves to tell us how to live and be
able to get along with people. On a
comical note, some things she says,
you would have to know her to love
her. The love of her life, beside the
Lord, is the summertime when she
plants her big garden.
Being 96 years old, one of the
blessings she counts most from God,
is that she has never had to stay one
night in the hospital (unless sitting
with someone else).


Annual Wellborn School reunion


Annual Wellborn School re-
union will be held from 10 a.m.-3
p.m., Saturday, April 19 at Well-
born Baptist Church. Come join
the fun as schoolmates, friends
and teachers gather to reminisce
by-gone days, catch up on what's


happening and to hold a memorial
service for deceased classmates.
It's a time to partake of some
good old fashioned cooking, great
fellowship and an opportunity to
share photos from early school
years and past reunions! Be sure


to bring your favorite dish and
dessert to share at the luncheon
which begins at noon. Don't for-
get to wear your school
colors...purple and gold! Info:

Jiffy store


to close
By Vanessa Fultz
The Jiffy convenience store.on US 90 west and
Lee Street will officially close its doors Sunday, said
owner Larry Freeman. Jiffy stores in Branford and
Wellborn closed earlier this year.
Freeman, of Gainesville, said the store is closing
due to government-mandated upgrades for gas tanks
and piping.
"It will cost half a million dollars to do it," he
said, noting the investment isn't feasible for that
store.
Freeman will own six stores in Suwannee County
once the store closes.
He said all of his stores have undergone the re-
quired upgrades, except for the Mitchell Road Jiffy.
Current plans are to construct a new store across
from the cur-
rent one.
Freeman
said once the
gas tanks are
removed and
1the site
cleaned the
property will
likely be
leased.

Donation of ar creates a stir in Jasper

Donation of car creates a stir in Jasper


By Melody Lee, Special to the Democrat
JASPER A decision by Jasper City
Manager Kent Cichon to return a do-
nated car has created a stir in the city.
The decision was later reversed and the
city accepted the automobile, a gift from
the Hamilton County Sheriffs Office.
Police Chief Jeffrey McGuire accepted
the car at the Hamilton County Sheriffs
Office on Wednesday, April 2. (It was at
that time that the photo below was taken.)
On Thursday, City Manager Kent Ci-
chon told Chief McGuire to return the
car to the sheriffs office.
According to County Coordinator
Danny Johnson, Cichon said the sher-
iffs office had not followed the proper
procedures for the donation of the car.
As the conversation continued, Cichon
objected to the photo as being "politi-
cal," because County Commissioner
Lewis Vaughn will be running for re-
election in November. Johnson told Ci-
chon that since the sheriffs office was
funded through the county's budget, it
was proper for the chairman of the
board to be in the photo.
Last Thursday Cichon told the Jasper
News he refused the car because the
sheriffs office did not go through the
proper channels that as city manager,
the issue should have been discussed
with him as to whether the city had the
resources to assume the liability and in-
surance for the car.
Cichon also said the city had received
other donations from sister cities for "al-
truistic reasons" with no "photo op." Ac-
cording to Cichon, when Chief McGuire
arrived at the sheriffs office to pick up
the car, the others were waiting to have
their photo taken with the car. When
asked why he objected to the photo of
an event that benefited the city and the
county, he repeated that other cities had
given donations for "altruistic reasons,
not for photo ops."
According to Cichon he was conduct-
ing internal discussions about the car
within the city's organization. Some of
these discussions involved the city
council members at least three of them
told the Jasper News that Cichon had
contacted them about the car.
Thursday, City council chairman
Kathy Avriett and member Darnell
Lumpkin said that Cichon had made a
poor decision.
Said Avriett, 'The sheriffs office was
good enough to give us a car. I am dis-
appointed the city manager chose to
have Chief McGuire return it. This was
a move toward mending fences and we
took a step backwards. We have to work
together for the good of the communi-
ty."
Lumpkin said he was not satisfied
with Cichon's actions. "Mr. Cichon
should stay out of police business and
let Chief McGuire run the police depart-
ment," he said. "We should be building
relationships, not tearing them down."
City council member Elaine Rozier
initially agreed with Cichon's decision
on Thursday, saying, 'The sheriffs of-
fice should have approached the city
manager or the council and there
should have been a determination of
need."
Later that day she amended her state-
ment based on additional information
she had received. She said McGuire had
told Sheriff Harrell Reid he needed an-
other car, so she saw no reason the city
should not have kept the car.
Mayor Ann Lessman would not com-
ment and Karen Bristol could not be
reached for comment.
Then, on Friday morning, Cichon
sent McGuire to the sheriffs office to
pick up the car again. When asked why
he had changed his mind, Cichon said,
"It was not a matter of changing my
mind; it was a matter of going through
the proper channels." According to Ci-
chon it was an internal procedure and
he did not have any further contact with
the sheriffs office.
Although three of the council mem-
bers stated Cichon had called them on
Thursday about the car and they had
told him he should not have returned it,
Cichon said he was "completely un-
aware of any opposition" to his decision
by the council members.
When asked if he objected to
Vaughn's being in the photo, Cichon
said, "I don't know anything about a
photo; I'm not concerned about a pho-
to."
"We should have graciously accepted


the car from the sheriff," Avriett said.
"The city manager is our employee and
the way he handled it is an embarrass-
ment to our council."
Update
The Jasper City Council held a special
workshop on Tuesday, April 8, to devel-
op a job description for the city clerk's
position. During the meeting, Avriett


City manager cites
stated she had received a number of
phone calls about the car. She said was
embarrassed for the city that the car had
been returned because a photo had
been taken. She noted there were two
other towns in the county that could
have used the car, but that the sheriff's
office had chosen to give it to Jasper.
Rozier said she was told the city did-
n't need the car. She later found out the
chief of police had told the sheriff that
he needed another car. She also said she
was upset and embarrassed, but that
the situation should be used as a learn-
ing experience for the city manager and
council.
Avriett then brought forward the fact
that according to the personnel manual,
city employees are not allowed to dis-


'proper procedures'
cuss city business with council mem-
bers. She said if Chief McGuire had
been able to talk to her about the car,
she could have intervened and the con-
troversy would have been avoided.
Rozier agreed that communication
between council members and city em-
ployees should be allowed. She said if a
person brought a complaint before the
council, she wanted to be able to contact
the appropriate employee and make
sure the matter was taken care of.
City Attorney Blair Payne pointed
out the council members had no au-
thority to direct city employees. Less-
man said her main concern was the
public and she did not want to get in-
volved in personnel matters. The rest of
the council members agreed they did


not want to direct the employees, but
they wanted to be able to follow up on
complaints.
Lessman said the council needed to
go forward in' a positive way and if
communicating with the employees
was a positive move, then they should
amend the personnel manual. Rozier
agreed the clause should be amended,
but said there were items in the manual
that also needed changing. She felt the
manual should be completely revised at
one time, not changed one item at a
time.
After further discussion, a motion
was made and seconded that Section
1.3.a.2 prohibiting city employees from
discussing city business with council
members be removed from the person-
nel manual. The motion passed with
one dissenting vote by Rozier.

In memory of Amber


Mayo woman

does her part to

protect children

throughout the land
By Ira Mikell, Special to the Democrat
MAYO Since 1996, the Amber Alert
System has been an important tool for
law enforcement agencies across the
country in locating and reuniting miss-
ing children with their families.
The program was created and named
in honor of nine-year-old Amber
Hagerman, who was abducted and
murdered in her hometown of Arling-
ton, Texas.
"The AMBER Alert Program was cre-
ated in 1996 as a powerful legacy to
nine year old Amber Hagerman who
was kidnapped and brutally murdered
while riding her bicycle in Arlington,
Texas," the National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children said on its web-
site, www.missingkids.com. The
acronym AMBER stands for "America's
Missing: Broadcast Emergency Re-
sponse Plan."
After the AMBER system took root in
Texas, the concept quickly spread
across the country and every state
adopted its own AMBER plan. Informa-
tion about Florida's program can be
found at www.floridaamberalert.com.
Throughout the country, many peo-
ple have become active members of the
Amber Alert System by promoting it on
their personal or business websites, so-
cial community profiles such as at My-
Space, or by joining community discus-
sion groups.
Mayo resident Kay Craig has been
following the Amber Alert program for
a number of years. Craig said she
spends the majority of her time staying
up-to-date on the latest Amber alerts
via email, whether they concern miss-
ing children far away or in our area.
In addition to being connected to the
Amber Alert by email, Craig has set up
her own website to promote the pro-
gram as well as a new tool called the
"Amber Stick," a device invented by
David Alkoby, a Florida computer soft-
ware programmer. Craig's children,
strong believers in the Amber Alert Sys-
tem as well as the Amber Stick, assist
her in updating their website, "Single
Mothers Are Survivors" at www.single-
mothersaresurvivors.com.
According to Craig, the Amber Stick
is a great way to help law enforcement
authorities speed the process of finding
a missing child. It has a built-in soft-
ware program that allows families to
record a large number of profiles. Craig
purchased one for her family and has
profiles of her three children as well as


Above: Craig poses with her three children, Lana,
Timmy and Jamie (holding the Amber Stick).

herself and is encouraging others to
buy them for their families.
Keeping records of your children is
not the only thing the Amber Stick can
do. According to Craig, the Amber
Stick can also hold profiles of adults
and pets.
The Amber Stick reduces the
amount of time needed for law en-
forcement agencies to find missing
children, adults and pets. According to
Craig, who has discussed the issue
with law enforcement officials in vari-
ous parts of the country, it takes an es-
timated two hours to complete the pa-
perwork when someone goes missing.
If an adult family member or pet goes
missing, Craig noted that law enforce-
ment officials would also be able to ac-
cess that information quickly and find
them sooner.
In contrast to identification cards
given to students at school, Craig says
the Amber Stick is secure. It can only
be accessed by its owners and law en-
forcement officials by entering a secure
user name and password that can be
changed multiple times. In addition,
the Amber Stick flash drive will not al-
low anyone to create a duplicate.
Scott Hamlin, Lafayette County
School Resource Officer, who recently
learned about the Amber Stick, be-
lieves it is a great asset, not only for
families, but also for law enforcement.
"Once the information has been down-
loaded into this flash drive, it can then


be
used to get
information out to the
Amber Alert system. Time is of the
essence when a child goes missing and
this speeds up the process of finding
this child," Hamlin said in an email in-
terview.
Craig was born and raised in
Suwannee County. While attending
Suwannee High School, she took class-
es at the Suwannee-Hamilton Techni-
cal Center to be certified in Child Care
and Development.
Sometime after receiving her Florida
Child Care Licenses from the vocation-
al school, and graduating from high
school in 1989, Craig moved to Texas
where she lived with her children for
14 years.
They moved to Great Britain in 2002,
moving back to Florida to live in Mayo
in 2006. Her daughter, Lana, age 10,
currently attends Lafayette Elemen-
tary, while her sons, Timmy, 15, and
Jamie, 17, attend Lafayette High
School.
Craig is currently registered to take
classes at North Florida Community
College to earn a B. A. degree in Foren-
sic Science.

Stick, visit Craig's website or contact

and yard as well.
"She had spotlights
around her house so she
could get up and work in
the yard before going to
work everyday," she said.
It was a routine she main-
tained up until last year,
somewhat to the amaze-
ment of her neighbors.
Another daughter, Sarah
Skinner of Albany, Ga.,
said she remembers a
neighbor saying that he and
his wife would sit on their
porch drinking coffee
watching Phillips work in
the yard. When she stopped
they knew it was time to
leave for work.
Morgan said her mother
was an independent woman
before that was fashion-
able. "She set off to all
kinds of places," Morgan
remembered. "Back in
those days you were not
supposed to do that (as a
woman), she was so liberat-
ed."
Morgan remembers that
one time her father was
backing a candidate for
governor that he knew pret-
ty well. "Mom didn't like
him so there were many
discussions," she said.
Morgan said when her fa-
ther put a political sign in
the front yard supporting
his choice, her mother put
up her own sign represent-
ing a different candidate.
Morgan said she misses
her mother but not the pain
she suffered from the can-
cer that took her life. Mor-
gan said this was her moth-
er's third bout with cancer.
Phillips was a member of
First United Methodist
Church on South Ohio Av-
enue. The sanctuary is on
the second floor and you
have to take either the stairs
or the elevator.
"Mom always took the
stairs," said Morgan. "She
said the elevator was for
old people."
Jim Wade, Phillips' pas-
tor, recalled her "sense of
humor and strength of char-
acter."
Skinner remembers her
mom as friendly and outgo-
ing.
"She was involved in
many school functions, Eshe
was president of the PTA
and just loved getting in-


volved," she said.
She also remembers her
mother's wit.
"We were all going out to
dinner one time and most of
us were past the senior citi-
zen age, and mom said,
'Now don't go embarrass-
ing me asking for that se-
nior citizen discount,'"
Skinner said.
She noted that her moth-
er was also a great discipli-
narian. "If one of us got in
trouble at school she would
tell us to just wait until we
got home," she said.
Morgan agreed. "The
only time she wasn't laugh-
ing and carrying on was
when she was spanking,"
she said.
Skinner remembers one
time that her son was in
Hawaii competing in a golf
tournament. "Mom really
wanted to go so my daugh-
ter flew to Hawaii with
her," Skinner said. She said
upon arrival her mother
was disappointed in the
scenery. "She said, 'My
goodness this is no differ-
ent than Miami,'" Skinner
said.
Skinner said her mother
was a big fan of the late
golfer Payne Stewart.
"She said she liked his
flashy clothes," she noted.
She said her grandson
told Stewart that his "nan-
ny" thought Stewart was
the second best golfer in the
PGA. When Stewart asked
him who she thought was
number one, he replied,
"Me, of course." Phillips
was able to secure a signed
photo of Stewart that read,
"For nanny. I love you too."
Phillips ended up in Live
Oak by way of train, ac-
cording to Skinner. She was
working in a beauty salon
in Jacksonville when she
and a friend heard about a
beauty shop for sale in Per-
ry. The two hopped on a
train but made a stop in
Live Oak. That was when
Phillips met her future hus-
band, J. Marvin. "I laugh
when I tell this story be-
cause I tell everyone that
dad plucked her off the
train," Skinner said.
Phillips' son Buddy of
Tallahassee, a former
Suwannee County sheriff,
remembered one Christmas
when Phillips, then 88,
came to his parents' North


Carolina home for a visit.
He and his mother got on a
sled and rode down a snow-,
covered hill.
"She was a lot better than
1 was at it," Phillips said
Thursday with a laugh.
"She wasn't afraid of any-
thing."
Buddy Phillips, who
served as sheriff from 1969
to 1973, remembered his
mother dressing him in a
white suit for a birthday
party when he was 6.

Combs was charged with
three counts of sexual bat-
tery on a child under 12
years of age and one count
of lewd or lascivious mo-
lestation on a child under
12 years of age. He was ar-


rested and booked into the
Suwannee County Jail in
May 2006.
Upon release from
prison Combs will be des-
ignated a sexual predator
and will remain on proba-
tion for the rest of his life,
the agreement states.
He will be denied con-
tact with the victim and the


victim's family and will be
required to complete a sex
offender treatment pro-
gram within the first 24
months of probation, ac-
cording to the agreement.
Combs will also pay a
$1,000 fine and courts
costs and other fees.
Combs will be sentenced
May 8.


Friends, family members remember Lillian Phillips


with a friend and started
chasing cows in a field,"
Phillips said.
He said his mother came
looking for him in her car.
"When I saw her I hid, but
she found me," he said.
Phillips said his mom
gave him a spanking, made
him take a bath, then gave
him another spanking. "I
still got to go to the party,"
he noted.
Lillian Phillips' son Joe,
of Live Oak, called his
mother "a very caring,


straightforward and loving
woman." He said she
seemed younger than her
years energetic and out-
going.
Phillips worked at the
store alongside his parents
beginning at 14. He'd come
in after school to help out.
When his father passed
away in 1980 he and his
mom assumed responsibili-
ty for the business. Joe
works at Suwannee Laun-
dry to this day.
Friend Grace Jones said


Phillips will be missed "in
so many ways." Jones had
known Phillips since 1952
and used to get her hair
done by Phillips at her
beauty shop, called Lil-
lian's. The shop was located
on a side porch of the
Phillips home where First
Federal Bank now stands at
the comer of US 129 and
11th Street.
"I never seen a woman
with as many talents as
she," Jones said of her
friend.

committees serving the in-
terests of senior adults.
Most recently, he served on
the Elder Options (former-
ly known as Mid-Florida
Area Agency on Aging)
Board of Directors from
2005-2007. He has served
on the Board of Directors
of the Florida Association
of Homes and Services for

has been a tireless advo-
cate, especially in the area
of services for the aging.
In 2002, Humbles re-
ceived the prestigious
Florida Association of
Homes for the Aging Exec-
utive of the Year Award.


Inscribed on the plaque are
the words, "In recognition
of three decades of exem-
plary service and dedica-
tion to the retirees, children
and staff at Advent Christ-
ian Village, and in appreci-
ation for your continuous
efforts to develop innova-
tive programs and services
that serve as models for re-
tirement communities
throughout Florida."
Humbles' pioneering
spirit was recognized local-
ly as 'well, when the
Suwannee County Cham-
ber of Commerce selected
him for the Trailblazer
Award in 2001. The award
recognizes those who have
displayed outstanding lead-
ership and who significant-
ly impact the lives of citi-
zens of Suwannee County.


Humbles advised the
Board of Directors of his
retirement plans two years
ago, in order to give ample
time for the search for his
successor. On behalf of the
ACV Board of Directors,
Chairman W.C. Nickerson
made the announcement to
the Village community on
April 6 that current vice
president for Resource De-
velopment, Craig A. Carter,
has been chosen as the suc-
ceeding president and
CEO.
"The board conducted a
nationwide search for po-
tential candidates, prayer-
fully considering the future
of Advent Christian Vil-
lage, and after meeting
with him, we came to the
unanimous and clear deci-
sion that Craig Carter is the


best candidate for the posi-
tion, and will serve ACV
well as Jim Humbles' suc-
cessor," said Nickerson.
Craig Carter is a native
of Suwannee County and
has been employed by Ad-
vent Christian Village since
1992. He is currently vice
president for Resource De-
velopment and Marketing,
with additional responsibil-
ities in public relations and
the Conference and Retreat
Center. He has been mar-
ried to Vicky (Rakow)
Carter for 20 years. The
couple has three children,
Adam, Timothy and Lind-
say. Carter will gradually
be assuming more areas of
responsibility over the next
few months, until officially
assuming the role of presi-
dent on Sept. 1.

Tennessee playing Kansas for

As of this writing the Detroit
Tigers have not won a game

how long will Derek Jeter be

soap operas you can tune in

One week into the season and
fantasy owners all over the

Kurt Suzuki will not hit .435
and Matt Holliday will not hit
.197. Hideo Nomo is back in
the Majors pitching long relief

third base coach for the
Dodgers, spent no time at all
getting himself suspended.
Bowa was warned he was

A freak

Texas


Dock Talk
By Damon Wooley

If there's anyone reading
this article that has about two
grand you would like to throw
my way I will humbly accept
your generous donation. I
have a fishing habit that needs
to be supported and I could
get the ultimate fix by driving
to the nearest airport, booking
a plane ticket to Zapata, Texas
and spending at least a week
on the most amazing bass
fishing lake in the country!
I've read countless stories this
past week on bassmaster.com
as I followed the progress of
the Lonestar Shootout at
Falcon Lake and I think that
Elite Series pro Byron Velvick
'said it best when he stated
"this place is a freak show."
Some of you might remember
when the Bassmaster Elite
Series visited Clear Lake out
in California last year and
Steve Kennedy broke Preston
Clark's record for the heaviest
combined weight during a:
four-day event with 122-14
throwing huge swimbaitg'
Many people thought that
Kennedy's record would
never be broken by any one
person. That is, until the Elite
Series Pros visited Falcon
Lake last week and the pros
began hauling record catches
to the scales on the first day
of the tournament.
The pundits had Aaron
Martens tagged to be the
angler to break Kennedy's
record as he led the
tournament for the first three
days and was almost a lock
for the win and the record but
when all of the dust finally
settled in Zapata, veteran pro
Paul Elias came out on top
with a final weight of 132-08.
Martens did break the record,
however, along with five
other anglers including
Florida angler Terry "Big
Show" Scroggins. Scroggins
actually came within a couple
of ounces of shattering Dean
Rojas'one day weight record
with his final day limit of 44-
04 and finished second behind
Elias. There's a bit of irony
there because Rojas is from
Texas and originally set the
BASS record in Florida on
Lake Toho. Scroggins is from
Florida and almost broke the
record in Texas. By the way,
does anyone want to go with

Deer management plan out of the starting gate


Outta' the woods


By Tony Young
Media Relations Coordinator
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

In its February meeting in
Panama City Beach, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
approved the "Strategic Plan
for Deer Management in
Florida 2008-2018." The plan


describes the state's history of
deer management, its current
status and outlines a 10-year
strategic direction through a
series of well-thought-out
goals, objectives and
strategies.
Even though the plan was
just approved, FWC's Deer
Management Team is already
working hard to begin
implementing the steps


necessary to achieve the plan's
objectives the overall goal
being to ensure healthy deer
populations that will meet the
public's desires for
recreational hunting, while
protecting private property
and ensuring the long-term
welfare of the species.
This living-and-breathing
plan continues to be a
collaborative effort between
FWC staff and a stakeholder
group representing many of
the state's hunting and
conservation


organizations/associations, a
other governmental agencies
and large private landowners
that lease much of their
properties to hunters.
Valuable input is being
gathered from these
stakeholders, which include
the Future of Hunting in
Florida, Florida Wildlife
Federation, Allied
Sportsmen's Associations of
Florida, United Hunters of

me?
Unfortunately, I doubt
my phone will be ringing
off the hook with people
ready to make donations to
support my habit and
finance the journey out
west anytime soon I'll have
to stay resigned to fishing
the good ol' Suwannee


River. Though the
Suwannee is a far cry from
Falcon Lake it has been
steadily descending over
the last week and now that
the water is stabilizing a
bit, the fishing should start
to pick back up.
If you're looking for a
reason to go fishing during
the week, head on down to
Old Town every Tuesday
afternoon for the open bass
tournament that is held at
the boat ramp across from
Fanning Springs. Blast off
is at 5:30 and the entry fee
is $30. The derby usually
lasts until dark and the
payback is 100 percent.
Last week there were 20
boats in the derby and I
look for there to be several


more in the coming weeks.
Joey Pate took home first
place two weeks ago with
an astounding 21 pounds
and the following week I
teamed up with Joey Wood
to squeak out a win by one
ounce with 13.12.
The North Florida
Bassmasters will hold their
monthly tournament this
weekend in Old Town at
Hinton Landing. Anyone
interested in joining can
sign up at the ramp on the
morning of the tournament.
I have to say a special
thank you toRoundman's
Pump Repair for including
me on their recent offshore
excursion. We fished with
Capt. Brian Smith of Big
Bend Charters out of


Steinhatchee and we
loaded the boat with
grouper and grunts. Capt.
"B" did a great job of
keeping us on fish all day.
Roundman's son Caylon
had big fish of the trip with
a 17 pound grouper though
his younger sibling Chance
also boated a nice 15+
pounder.
The fishing has been
great at Bienville
Plantation the last few
weeks! There have been a
lot of big fish caught and
on two separate charters
I've had clients catch their
personal bests. Both bass
were over 9 pounds and
both were caught using a
6-inch Zoom junebug
lizard.

FWC's deer team has met
regularly over the past year and
a half, developing the plan and
is now beginning the tedious
process of compiling the many
varied ideas and opinions on
'how Florida's deer should be
managed. The process of
hashing out all of the details is
challenging, but the team and
stakeholder group are
committed to making the plan a


Outta' the woods


reality.
Together, these folks are
spending countless hours going
over every detail, obstacle,
theory and strategy that needs to
be considered and worked out
so the management plan's
ambitious goals and objectives
will be realized. Much more
hard work lies ahead, but the
strategic plan provides a good
roadmap for moving forward..
Florida's deer are unlike any
other state's, and there are no
clear-cut, easy fixes that can be
applied in "broad-brush"
fashion to solve every issue.
Much of our state is not blessed
with rich soils capable of
producing high-quality, year-
round nutrition for deer, so you
can't just take what another
state is doing for deer
management and apply it to
Florida.
Because Florida's northern-
tiered counties that border
Georgia and Alabama actually


do have pretty fertile soil, you
have to manage that herd
differently than you would the
deer living in areas of the state
with poorer habitat. So the plan
includes the idea of creating
deer management units (DMUs)
to help manage deer at a more
local level. The factors going
into where the lines may be
drawn include areas with similar
habitat, soil compositions,
geographic features and timing
of the rut. Major roads and
rivers will be used as boundary
lines when possible to make the
DMUs easy to delineate.
Now there's probably not
going to be different hunting
season dates for each DMU; that
would be too complicated and
unnecessary. But it is possible
that more hunting regulation
zones than the three Wi have'' :'
may be necessary.
Besides creation of DMUs,
other possible ideas being
considered include changes in


hunting seasons, better ways to
ensure harvest success for a
greater number of hunters and
monitoring the long-term effects
of antler restrictions on wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
Speaking of antler
restrictions, at the February
Commission meeting, rules
were passed on 21 WMAs,
which put a 3-points-on-a-side
antler restriction on legal bucks.
These areas are Apalachee, Pine
Log, Wakulla, Belmore, Four
Creeks, Hatchet Creek,
Homosassa, Jennings Forest,
Big Bend Tide Swamp Unit,
Richloam Baird Unit, Bull
Creek, Caravelle Ranch, Guana
River, Seminole Forest,
Arbuckle, Lake Marion Creek,
Upper Hillsborough,
Okaloacoochee Slough, Dinner
Island Ranch, Jones/Hungryland
and Spirit-of-the-Wild.
Additionally, Tate's Hell State
Forest and Tate's Hell Womack
'Cf~ek Uiiit' iith6 NOfthwest:' "
Region will have a forked-antler
(2 points on a side) restriction.
The new antler rules on all of
these areas will be in effect


during the 2008-09 hunting
season.
Other proposals under
consideration include a tag-and-
report system, where hunters
would tag deer immediately
after the take and shortly
afterwards, report the harvest.
Methods for reporting deer
harvest information may include
calling atoll-free telephone
number or entering the harvest
information through the
Internet.
As different aspects of the
plan and associated proposals
are fleshed out further by FWC
staff and the stakeholder group,
a series of surveys and public
meetings will be conducted
around the state to gather input
from the general deer hunting
public and landowners.

Plan for Deer Management in
Florida 2008-2018," go to

Trike-A-Thon at Westwood Christian School to

benefit St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital


The K-3 classes at Westwood Christian
School recently took part in a Trike-A-
Thon. The children studied rules about bike
safety and then rode their riding toys


around the parking lot of Westwood Baptist
Church. The Trike-A-Thon also raises
funds for St. Jude's Children's Research
Hospital.


By Karl R. Stewart
There are many teachings in the Bible
which are very important for a Christian
to learn. These basic teachings are
called doctrines and are vital to the
foundation of our faith in Jesus Christ.
Saint Paul wrote these words to
Timothy, a young pastor, evangelist,
and overseer in the church, in 1
Timothy 4:16, "Watch your life and
doctrine closely. Persevere in them,
because if you do, you will save
yourself and your hearers." If a
Christian should depart from sound
Biblical doctrine, their faith is harmed
and could be destroyed.
The doctrine we will consider today
concerns the Word of God itself. What
is the Bible? Is it the Word of God or
the word of men? Is it the sole
authority? How is it different from
other religious writings? If you ask
these questions of ten different people,
you could well end up with ten different
answers. Why? The answer is simple.
Each person uses their reason and logic
and they draw from their personal
experience and if there are any gaps
they are neatly filled in with their
imagination to understand what the
Bible is. Their thinking might run along
these lines. All books are written by
men and contain the ideas of men. The
Bible is a book. Therefore, it is no
different from any of the other books
written by men. Its authority rests on
man's accumulated wisdom,
knowledge, and learning. Therefore, the
Bible is the word of men.
This tiny bit of reason and logic
destroys all faith. Faith is the key to
unlocking the mysteries of the eternal
Word of God. If we wish to truly
understand the Bible, what it is, its
authority, and its message, we must lay
aside our reason, logic, experience, and
imagination and let the Bible speak for
itself. The principle is called, "Letting
Scripture Interpret Scripture." That is,
we must ask ourselves, "What does
Scripture say about itself in this
;regard'" In 1 Timothy 3:-4i!r7, Saint
Paul writes to Timothy, "But as for you,
continue in what you have learned and
have become convinced of, because you
know those from whom you learned it,
and how from infancy you have known
the Holy Scriptures, which are able to
make you wise for Salvation through
faith in Christ Jesus. All
Scripture is God Faith i
breathed and is useful for
teaching, rebuking, myster
correcting and training in
righteousness, so that the
man of God may be under13
thoroughly equipped for its author
every good work." In 2
Peter 1:20-21 we find, must a
"Above allyou must experie
understand that no let
prophecy of Scripture
came about by the
prophet's own
interpretation. For
prophecy never had its ,
origin in the will of man,
but men spoke from God as
they were carried along by _____
the Holy Spirit." License No
Both passages refer to
the divine inspiration of the Office
Bible by the Holy Spirit. It Mobile
is not based on the will of
man or on his learning or Michae


understanding. So, for a Christian, the
doctrine of the inspiration of Holy
Scripture places the Bible in a class by
itself. It has the authority of God and is
like no other book in the world written
by men. The Bible is God's Word, God
breathed and written to, "make you
wise for salvation through faith in
Christ Jesus." Its one purpose is to save
your eternal soul through faith in Jesus
Christ.
Consider the Bible. From the first
sentence to the last, I'm sure you will
agree, that our reason and logic are
completely inadequate to the task of
understanding or believing the contents
of this inspired book. The first sentence
reads, "In the beginning God created
the heavens and the earth." And our
mind immediately asks, "How could it
be the beginning? Where did God
come from?" These mysteries have
always been, are now, and forever will
be closed to the unbeliever. But to the
believer, it is a bright beacon shinning
in this sin darkened, condemned and
dying world. The Bible brings to our
hearts pardon for sin and peace with
God the Father who sent His sinless
Son to atone for our sins by dying on
the cross. He is our sin substitute, that
is, our punishment fell on Him. By
faith in His death on.our behalf, we are
covered by His righteousness. Our sins
are forgiven.
Jesus said it this way in John 6:37-40,
"All the Father gives Me will come to
Me, and whoever comes to Me, I will
never drive away. For I have come
down from heaven not to do My will
but the will of Him who sent Me, that I
shall lose none of all that He has given
me, but raise them up at the last day.
For My Father's will is that everyone
who looks to the Son and believes in
Him shall have eternal life, and I will
raise him up at the last day." This is the
Good News written in the Holy Bible,
the God breathed Word of God. Faith
comes by hearing and hearing by the
Word of God. He who has ears to hear,
let him hear, and let him remember the
doctrine of the inspiration of Holy
Scripture.
Pastor Karl R. Stewart of Grace
Lutheran Church, Live Oak, 386-364-
1851. Read your Bible and come to
church at 10:30 am Sunday Morning.
The Lord, Jesus Christ, be with you all.

s the key to unlocking the
ies of the eternal Word of
God. If we wish to truly
stand the Bible, what it is,
rity, and its message, we
y aside our reason, logic,
nce, and imagination and
the Bible speak for itself.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!


Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:


* Always operate a generator in accordance with
manufacturer's guidelines and instructions.
* To avoid CO poisoning, never use a generator indoors
or in attached garages. Only operate the generator
outdoors in a well-ventilated, dry area from air intakes to
the home.
STo avoid electrocution, plug individual appliances into
the generator using heavy duty, outdoor rated cords with
a wire gauge adequate for the appliance load.
* If connecting into the house wiring is necessary on a
temporary basis, homes must have a transfer switch
installed by a licensed electrician. A transfer switch allows
If you desire to obtain a transfer switch for res
use the cooperative has approved a meter sock
based transfer switch by GENERLINK model
MA23-N or S. Member would purchase the tro
switch through GENERLINK (1-800-886-383

your house to receive power directly from a portable
generator as opposed to power normally supplied by
SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits supplied by
the generator and prevent backfeeding inadvertently
energizing circuits in both systems.
SBackfeedinig can most cdmmonly occur when a
generator is connected directly to the electric panel or
circuit in a home. Feeding power back into the utility
system during an outage will energize the transformer
serving the house and could pose a serious threat to line
and service and tree crews working to restore power in
the area who may not know they are working with an
energized line.

The Middle Way

All of the world's great religions have had to deal, at some point in their history, with the
issue of asceticism and the proper modes of diet, dress and worship. Early on in their history,
most religions opted for strict adherence to the rules of governing diet, dress and worship:
Witness the strict rules laid out in Leviticus and Deuteronomy
governing every aspect of life. Later on, prophets like
Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Hosea pointed out that God did
not want strict adherence to the specific rules
governing sacrifices so much as He desired a proper
and loving heart. In the early years of Christianity
there was a similar debate over whether Christians
should be bound by the well-established Jewish laws
governing diet and worship. It appears that Peter
initially argued for strict adherence, while Paul
thought that the Jewish laws should not govern A
Gentile Christians. Ultimately, these laws were
loosened for all Christians. Likewise, when the
Buddha began his spiritual journey, he fasted
abstemiously and wore only rags. Somewhat
later in his ministry, the Buddha proposed
the middle way between severe fasting
with strict adherence to the rules of life
and leniency concerning these things. The
"Middle Way" advised that you should eat
whatever is set before you, and at one's
discretion, you may wear either rags or a
religious robe. What is actually more
important is not so much following the
letter of the law, but whether the spirit of
the law is written on our heart. Love and
compassion, not mindless sacrifice, are
what God wants of us.


For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the
knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

Time for some spring cleaning


All around are the sights and
sounds of spring...flowers are
blooming, grass is turning green,
the birds are singing...it's time to
pack away winter, open the
windows and do a little "spring
cleaning!" This is also a great
idea when it comes to guarding
our hearts and protecting the
relationships in our lives. We
can all accumulate some clutter
that flat needs to go! Over the
next several weeks, Heart
Matters will be taking a close
look at some real "enemies" of
our hearts and relationships that
are best identified and cleaned
out on a regular basis. In Exodus
20:17, the Bible points out the
first of these dangerous
opponents:
"You shall not covet your
neighbor's house. You shall not
covet your neighbor's wife, or
his manservant or maidservant,


Heart Matters
By Angie Land

his ox or donkey, or anything
that belongs to your neighbor."
To "covet" goes beyond
simply admiring what someone
else has to the point of resenting
the fact they have what you


don't. We call this "envy".
Webster's defines envy as
"jealousy; resentment that is
aroused by another's advantage
or possessions."
According to this definition,
there are two arenas for envy to
rear its head: possessions and/or
the advantage or position of
others. A modern translation of
this verse might sound like this:
Don't be jealous because
someone has a bigger or nicer
house than you; don't wish you
had your neighbor's wife or kids,
his job, income or any of his
possessions...that can definitely
be easier said than done.
I don't remember ever wishing
for someone's ox or donkey, but
their new car...well that's another
story! The second part of our
definition reminds us that we can
also become envious of any
advantage that we believe others


may have over.us. This results in
a "power struggle" that shows up
in our marriages, and we will
become controlling or
disconnected; in our families
where sibling rivalry can become
a real problem; in our jobs where
resentment can grow into deep
bitterness against a co-worker or
boss; and in our friendships,
which can end up destroyed.
One of the most dangerous
things about envy is that we
usually won't admit it...it has
very close ties with pride.
According to Ephesians 5:19-24,
envy is included in the list of acts
of our sinful nature, and it gains
strength when we are insecure or
unsatisfied with what we have or
who we are. Being secure and
satisfied comes from believing
that we are who God says we are
(loved and valuable) and
accepting the plan that He has for


our life. Take time today for a
little spring "heart"
cleaning...identify (confess it)
and throw out (repent) any form
of jealousy...it has the potential
for severe damage to your
relationships and having peace
within yourself. This is worth our
time because our hearts really do
matter!
Blessings,
Angie

By David Matier
If a person
could go to
Heaven by being
good, Christ
would not have
had to die! "...For
if righteousness
come by the law,
then Christ is dead
in vain."
(Galatians 2:21).
The person could
just be good and
go to Heaven. But the fact
remains that he is a sinner even
after he is saved. John said, "If
we say that we have no sin we
deceive ourselves, and the truth
is not in us." And again he says,
"If we say that we have not
sinned, we make him [God] a
liar, and his word is not in us" (I
John 1.8, 10). The word "sin"
refers to the fact that we have
that inside of us that draws us to
sin and the word "sinned" means
we have actually committed acts
of sin, acts contrary to God's
law.
Now who was John talking to
in this passage of scripture? Was
he talking to the thieves and
robbers, the prostitutes and
Johns of his day? Was he talking
to the non-Christians; the
heathen? No! He was talking to
Christians. John said, 'These
things have I written unto you
that believe on the name of the


Son of God; that
ye may know that
ye have eternal
life, and that ye
may believe on
the name of the
Son of God" (I
John 5:13). John
was writing to
Christians, to the
born again when
he said, "If you
say you have no
sin you are
fooling yourself...If you say you
have not committed sin you
making God a liar and His Word
is not in you! Praise the Lord!
Sandwiched in between verses 8
and 10 he tells the Christian
what to do when he realizes he
has sinned: "If we confess our
sins, he is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins, and to
cleanse us from all
unrighteousness" (I John 1:9).
The grace of God is evident in
this verse in that it says if we
confess the sins we are aware of
God even forgives us of all the
sins we've committed that we
are not aware of!
This is not license to sin
because if you are saved it will
be evidenced in your life. As
James said, "Even so faith, if it
hath not works, is dead..."
(James 2:17). Real faith
produces fruit. And God Is the
Fruit Inspector

Don't let pressure compromise your journey


By Derek Maul
www.Derekmaul.net

This past few weeks my
men's Bible-study group has
been studying a book by Larry
Crabb called 'The Pressure's
Off."
In his central thesis, Crabb
argues that most of us are locked
into "linear thinking." We
believe that everything we want
out of life is ours for the taking.
All we have to do is to work
hard, line things up, and put our
noses to the grindstone.
Wrapped up in this approach -
and it all sounds reasonable in a
"you get out what you put in"
kind of a way is the conclusion
that God is obligated to "bless"
us if we get it right. The
pressure is on. This approach is
fundamental to our thinking as
North Americans. Also know as
the "Protestant Work Ethic,"
linear thinking keeps us firmly
in control. If we are not


"blessed," "healed,"
"prosperous" or "favored", we
are told, then it's simply because
we are not working hard
enough, praying long enough or
claiming the right promises in
the right order.
The alternative, Crabb
suggests, is a commitment to
draw close to God for God's
own sake. We lose focus when
we leverage our relationship
with God in order to "get" a


happy family, a better job, a
satisfying life, or anything at all
that is an end other than
fellowship with our Creator.
As people of faith, experience
already tells us that health,
possessions, easy-to-raise
children, or a trouble-free life
are not directly tied in to our
spiritual journey. Yet we still
insist on an "Old Testament"
approach that tells us, "A + B =
C; it's all up to me; get it right
or else."
Paul puts it this way at the
beginning of Romans 8:
"Therefore, there is now no
condemnation for those who are
in Christ Jesus, because through
Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit
of life set me free from the law
of sin and death."
God is not interested in
applying pressure. God is
interested in a relationship with
his children; it's as simple as
that.
Blessings on your journey.
