OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat

Give, but don't

get taken
Lots of folks are in need this holiday
season here and elsewhere. Whether you
choose to give, and to whom, is purely a
private matter. Some folks donate through
churches or social and civic groups, others
give directly to the charity of their choice.
The advantage in all these cases is that
you've got time to do your homework and
determine where your gift is going and
how much of it, if any, is spent on some-
thing other than what's intended.
But what about the solicitors you see on
street corners and outside local mer-
chants? Most of these folks are just fine.
The local chapter of Disabled American
Veterans just finished a drive and the Sal-
vation Army will begin one soon.
There are others, though, whose creden-
tials we've questioned. When asked
where the funds they collect end up,
they've become defensive and evasive.
Not the kind of people we want to do busi-
ness with.
"If you don't know the people who are
soliciting or the organization they are so-
liciting for, do not make the donation,"
says Chief Buddy Williams of the LOPD.
Good advice.
By the same token, though, don't let a
few bad apples sour you on helping those
in real need not just during the holidays,
but all year long.

The reason the city council cannot agree on a candidate is
simple. Two councilman want more of the OMI luxury that
costs tax payers millions. And two councilman want a public
works department that is not for profit.
Sm
In response about borrowing drug sniffing dogs for the Mag-
nolia type events, it wouldn't work. As one officer has said, the
poor dogs would probably go schizophrenic and die of a heart
attack. The prevalence and variety of options would be too
much to handle. A task force member told me that some peo-
ple come for nothing more than to sell their goods and was sur-
prised when there were arrests occurring. What is the real long
term benefit from this type of stuff? Is it really worth it???
In response to the rant about the ambulance/EMS service
transporting someone who was "not feeling well" while her
dad was having a heart attack: I agree that we have excellent
EMS responders who need to be complimented on their ser-
vice. However, you are under a misconception regarding our
tax dollars paying for this service. My son was in a car acci-
dent (very serious with life threatening injuries) he was trans-
ported to the hospital by local EMS services and then trans-
ported to the trauma unit at Shands/Gainesville due to the seri-
ousness of his injuries. Thankfully, he did survive although he
underwent several major surgeries and is still undergoing a lot
of follow-up with more down the road. The catch on this is:
when the bills started rolling in I was charged for the ambu-
lance ride and EMS services he received at the accident site
and transport to the Trauma Center to the tune of over
$5,000.00. So, why are we paying taxes for emergency ser-
vices? This is not an error as I also had need of EMS sever-
al years ago when my husband suffered a medical emergency
(stroke) and EMS arrived, took him to Shands @ Live Oak -
then, several weeks later, I received the EMS service bill for
transport to the tune of $2,133.00 WHAT ARE WE PAYING
FOR IN THESE TAXES?

I took my share of drug tests and passed when I was able to
work, until drug crazed ex-husband tried to kill me, which in-
jured my back. So I did in your words: work for a living! Trust
me, I paid taxes like you, so I am thankful for my check! Live
in public housing, my rent is high, w/bills and so on. Not ask-
ing for a handout. There are times when I'm actually very hun-
gry. But u wont find me in sheriff link for stealing food. So my
monetary assistance came from my years of employment and
not from the tax payers. The working class that needs a little
help!! talk to your employers on that one!! or learn to budget
your money!!
This is in response to the one who came from Sandalwood,
maybe you should go to Madison college and get your law en-
forcement degree and go to work for our chief or maybe even
our sheriffs. But what is that you say, you're working and you
get that call and you're answering nothing but disturbance
calls, you don't have time to write the [inaudible] ticket, well
what sheriff or chief, tell them you are too busy writing [in-
audible] tickets, to go to that call. They need to focus on more
things like child restraints.

Am I the only one that gets behind the person at the round-
about that things the yield sign is a stop sign? Will somebody
tell me please?

Fake petty Americans love our country! so if you can't or
wont speak English, then go back to Mexico or where ever it


a 7


rave

is you snuck across the border or how ever you entered to our
great country!! that includes Canada, which equals around
14,000 miles of border to be patroled!! Dont be so sure that
your daughters are being followed in Wal-Mart, they probably
aren't even noticed!!

All drugs should be legalized. After that happens the jails be-
come empty, the courts become empty, the lawyers are on un-
employment. And murder rates drop 90 percent and people can
go to work making money.
m m
To those who wrote in on rant and rave regarding being
more concerned about the graduation rates in Suwannee Coun-
ty as opposed to the coverage of a game that involves a small
group at considerable public expense. The football players
have to have a certain grade point average that they maintain
all through the year. If they fall below that, they are under con-
tract, and if it is not brought up, then they are no longer a part
of the team. And where does public expense come in at all re-
garding the football games? If you don't want to pay to go to
the game then don't go, it is not costing you a thing then is it?

Yeah, in regards to the Magnolia Festival coverage. There
are different festivities that go on at the Spirit of the Suwannee
all throughout the year for various groups of people, if you
want to call it that. Drunken rednecks, that's not really a term
you need to leave in Suwannee County. What about the Po-
liceman's Ball, who you never hear about getting into trouble,
and all of them sit up there with an open bar and drive home
after they have been drinking all night. Where are all those ar-
rests?

This is for the people talking about tinted windows. She
should think that for some of us who have skin cancer, for us
to go to town with tinted windows, helps us to do our shop-
ping and stuff and helps us save our lives from getting this skin
cancer that is caused by the sun. She should think before she
opens her mouth about this.
This is in response to the article by Paul Haas on fire codes.
I feel some things need to be clarified. Suwannee Co. Fire/Res-
cue is the authority having jurisdiction in the county. Live Oak
Fire Dept. has that authority in the city limits of Live Oak.
NFPA1, 1.10 provides for the establishment of a board of ap-
peals. If a business owner feels the authority having jurisdic-
tion has misinterpreted the code, this board of appeals can be
called on to make a final decision. I know of a couple of cases
where the Suwannee Co. authority having jurisdiction's inter-
pretation of the code was deemed incorrect. Sometimes taking
classes and passing a state exam does not an expert make. In
the case of interpreting the fire prevention code, experience
and good people skills go a long way. I feel Mr. Haas has be-
come a jack of all trades at Suwannee Co. Fire Rescue. You
know the old saying about a jack of all trades.

Councilman Flip Flop is at it again. After praising Henry
Smart for his initiative and interest in the vacant council seat
he votes against him. Mr. Stewart is allowed to use the bully
pulpit for his political aspirations but when someone else an-
nounces they are a candidate, they are no longer a viable per-
son. That makes no sense, but neither did voting for a $36,000
SUV. Mr. Stewart ran unopposed that won't happen this time.
Say one thing and do another. Still enjoying your insurance
money you voted against then took?

I would like to commend the Sheriff's Posse on the great job
they do at the football games
I'd like to know why there is such little support in the gay
community here in Suwannee County. I'm fully aware that
small towns (especially in the south) aren't accepting of this
sort of thing, but it's 2010 and it's time to get with the rest of
the world. These people are human just like straight people.
Stop acting like it's a choice and start being a little more ac-
cepting of the fact that humans can love other humans. That's
something beautiful, not something that should be forbidden.

One of Branford's most re-

away last Friday at Shands UF
after a long illness. James Dun-
can "J.D." Grinstead Sr., 77,
served as a Suwannee County


Commissioner from 1992-1996.
He was instrumental in coordinat-
ing the effort to establish the
Branford public Library.
According to County Commis-
sioner Douglas Udell, Grinstead
worked closely with then-sheriff
Robert Leonard to secure confis-
cated drug money, which largely


funded the library. "He wanted
the library bad for his people in
Branford," said Udell. "He was a
man who was extremely con-
cerned for his county."

stead.
"Mr. Grinstead really wanted
to make sure that got done for
the citizens of Branford," said
Danny Hales, director of the
Suwannee River Regional Li-
brary System. Hales said Grin-
stead worked hard not only to


secure funding from the Sheriffs
Department, but also from orga-
nizations such as Rotary.
Grinstead also voted with
commissioners Sam Roberson
and Udell to make Martin
Luther King Day a legal holiday
in Suwannee County. The pro-
posal received much opposition,
but Grinstead stood his ground,


said Udell.
"He came to the conclusion
that it was the right thing to
do," said Udell. "He was very
open minded and also very sup-
portive of me as a new county
commissioner."
A Branford native, Grinstead
lived most of his life in Bran-
ford and cared greatly for the


people there. Before becoming
a commissioner, he served in
the U.S. Navy. He graduated
from the University of Florida
in 1955 with a bachelor's de-
gree. Grinstead was an account
executive for General Motors
Corporation, from which he re-
tired after 35 years.
Above all things, Grinstead's


colleagues say he was a good
person who was a joy to work
alongside. "He was a pleasure
to work with," said former
County Coordinator Johnny
Wooley.
"He worked diligently for the
betterment of Suwannee Coun-
ty," said Udell.

This will be good, we like
corn, and beans and hope

Easy lawn maintenance
tips and fertilizers were
covered by Nichelle De-
morest, UF/IFAS Columbia
County Extension Horticul-
ture Agent and Judy More-
lan, Suwannee County

vided samples of Bahia,
Centipede and St. Augus-

mends following UF best
management practices for a
low maintenance lawn in-
cluding knowing when to
water and how to mow.
Nichelle used the "ooh,
aah, lawn" the one in all
the magazine pictures -as
an example of over-water-


ing, improper mowing and
too much fertilizer. She
said that these practices
waste money, time, make
turf more susceptible to
pests and disease and may
be harming ground water
and the river with excess
nitrates.

Food for Thought

What Sin Can Do!
Today, we have many enemies. Of these
enemies, sin is number one. Sometimes men put
false labels on sin. We might try to justify sin or
even water it down. We must understand there is a
consequence to sin [Rom. 6:23]. What does sin
do?
1) Sin Enslaves Us: Rom. 6:16 and John 8:34
tells us we can become a servant of sin.
2) Sin Spots Us: James 1:27 tells us sin spots us
or makes us unclean. In the story of the Prodigal
Son we see where sin contaminated him [Luke
15:11-32].
3) Sin Scars Us: Someone once said, "Sin is like
smallpox, if it doesn't kill you, it will mostly likely
scar you for life." David remembered his sins [Psa.
51], Paul, too, remembered his sin [I Tim. 1:15].
4) Sin Separates Us: In Isaiah 59 the Jews were
calling upon God in prayer. They questioned
God's ability to help. The wondered if His arm
was too short to help them. You see, the problem
wasn't with God, it was with man. Sin severs
fellowship with God. Sin will take you further
than you want to go, cost you more than you want
to pay and kee you longer than you want to stay!

'We really need
your help'

By Roger L. Burnside
Toys for Kids+ really
needs your help. Christmas
is a time of joy and
celebration; unfortunately
there are many children in
the Branford area that will
be missing the joy of
receiving Christmas
presents. We are in need of
toys, clothes and in some
cases, food for these
children.
With the economy the
way it is right now we are
experiencing more requests
than in past years. No
donation is too small, if
you can just provide one
toy, a box of food, a winter
coat or shoes it will be
greatly appreciated.
Anyone interested in
helping us with this project
can take their donations to
the Branford Health
Department. You may also
call Karen at the Branford
Health Department at 386-
935-1133 or Roger
Burnside at 386-935-3343.
Should you know of a
child in need you may also
call these numbers.
Over the years the folks
in the Branford area have
brought a lot of joy to the
area's children and their
families, for this we thank
each and every one of you.
The smiles and
appreciation the children
express each year make
this project a blessing to
all.

and Korea. Photo: Stephenie Livingston


Mayo's Lewis

Sessions recalls his

days as a soldier

By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

MAYO -A ship car-
rying replacement sol-
diers, including Lewis
Sessions, crossed the
Atlantic and landed on
the shores of France
during World War II.
Unlike most of his fel-
low passengers, Ses-
sions had been waiting
nearly four years to fi-
nally see combat. His Lewis and Catherine Sessions
heart raced as the in 1942. Courtesy photo
shipped docked. And
then someone cheered, "The German war has ended.
Hitler is dead!"
Due to a mix up, Sessions was never assigned to a
permanent unit after enlisting in the US Army in
1942 when he was 20. He bounced from base to
base, always narrowly missing the chance to be de-
ployed to fight the ongoing war across Europe. "I
felt that was where I needed to be. It was my duty,"
said Sessions. "And hell, they would've drafted me
anyway."
When his opportunity finally came, Sessions found
himself in Europe, not fighting Nazis, but rather scour-
ing Germany and other surrounding countries, includ-
ing Yugoslavia, for displaced persons and helping
them find their way home. Sessions can still recall
what he felt the first time he entered a concentration
camp. "It was heartbreaking," he paused. "It was just
a bad thing. I saw where they used to bum them."
"Hitler had scattered the people everywhere, what
he hadn't killed," Sessions said.
After three months of helping hoards of Hitler's vic-
tims, including emancipated Jews and parentless chil-
dren, find their way home, he received new orders to
return to the US immediately. Sessions was being sent
to fight in mainland Japan. Finally, he would see com-
bat. Only by this point, his fervor was spent.
After returning to the U.S., Sessions was put on a
30-day leave, after which he would be shipped, along
with thousands of other soldiers to invade Japan. Just
before being deployed, the news arrived. On August 6,
1945 Truman dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima,
Japan. The war ended days later.
"We didn't have to go anywhere. Japan surrendered
and they broke our division up," said Sessions. The
soldiers with the most combat experience where al-
lowed to leave the army. "Of course, I didn't get dis-
charge," he chuckled. "I didn't have all that combat
experience."
Sessions was called to battle once again during the
Korean War. He was sent to California, expecting to be
immediately deployed to Korea. At the last minute, the
orders were changed and he was sent to the last place
he expected, Alaska. "That was the last place in the
world I want to go, but we loved it," said Sessions.
Sessions had married his wife Catherine before enlist-
ing in '42. "It was hard to find a place to live in Alas-
ka at that time. But I found a place before I brought her
up there. A little ol' shack," he said. Sessions became
the first instructor of the National Guard in Alaska.
Sessions said he just happened to be the only person
who had extensive knowledge of the National Guard
and ROTC in Alaska.
"I just happened to be in the right place at the right
time," Sessions said. A statement that characterizes his
story.
Sessions went on to complete a stint in Korea after
the war and also returned to Germany, Catherine by
his side. After twenty years in the Army, Sessions re-
tired as a Captain. Originally from Mayo, he and
Catherine returned home. "Everybody wants to get
back home, I think," he smiled.

High students tour

FAMU, take in a

Rattler game
By Paula G. Williams
JASPER- About 30 stu-
dents From Hamilton High
took off on Saturday for
what would be a day to re-
member. Driver Charles
Merine made sure the trip
was smooth sailing as we
traveled over to Tallahassee
to tour Florida Agricultural
and Mechanical University.
The first stop was the en-
trance of the main campus
where the students heard all
about the administration
building where registration,
financial aid and other infor-
mation is available.
The group rode by the
campus president's house,
educational buildings, dor-
mitories, etc. They listened
attentively to the informa-
tion about degrees and pro-
grams offered, admission
criteria, etc., and they asked
questions. They were quite
interested in the Greek Wall
and this gave the tour guide
the opportunity to share
Greek fraternity and sorority
information as a part of ex-
tracurricular activities on
campus. We took a look at
the new FAMU High school
and other FAMU properties
in the area. The next stop
was the newly opened Al
Lawson Teaching Gym &
Convocation Center, where
students were briefed with
information about ROTC,
FAMU Rattler sports, leg-
endary football coach Jake
Gaither and some locals who
played under Coach Gaither.
We moved on the area fond-
ly called "the patch," where
the world famous Marching
"100" band practices. The
students were so excited for
they had never seen such a
huge band. They were ea-
gerly anticipating half time
when they would see the
"100" in action.
The group moved on to
Governor's Square Mall for
lunch and after this little
break from the excursion,
we loaded back on the bus
and headed for Bragg
Memorial Stadium. Orange
and green everywhere and
Rattler spirit in the air added
to the thrill of the day. We
were met by many alumni
members, friends and Lionel
Combs. The group visited
vendors and noted every-


Hawkins shares memories with Charles and Chris Merine.


thing taking place. Some
moved on to the band en-
trance gate to see the band
move into the stadium and
some went to the end zone.
Finally, kickoff time Rattler
style with FAMU taking on
North Carolina A & T.
Consequently, both teams
rallied back and forth
throughout the game, and at
half time the Rattlers were
down 21-17.
The drum majors stilled
the audience by their mere
entrance on the field. They
left no doubt ... it was
SHOW TIME! The March-
ing 100 lead by the Magnif-
icent Ten pumped it up and
electrified the fans. The stu-
dents ranted and raved for it
was spectacular as always.
The band did a special fea-
ture on keeping Florida to-
bacco free and armbands
with this motto were distrib-
uted to spectators.
The second half of the
ballgame was full of a lot of
action and FAMU pulled it
out by a score of 31-27, cap-
ping a perfect home season.
After the game, our group
had to trudge back up the
hill to the bus, but we were
energized with the thought


of the next phase of the trip.
We headed to the Fun Sta-
tion where we were greeted
by former high school stu-
dent and FAMU graduate,
Wesley Hawkins. He was
so happy and excited to see
everyone and was busy hug-
ging and catching up all at
the same time. He helped us
get settled quickly so the fun
could begin and it did.
From golf, to go-carts to
video games, to laser tag
and you name it ... what a
blast! Not to mention un-
limited tokens, pizza and
drinks all evening compli-
ments of FAMU Rattlers -
Joyce & Dia Green, Wesley
Hawkins and Alonza
Solomon. We appreciate
everything they did to assist
in making the Fun Station
so special for our children.
It takes special people
with caring hearts to make
special things happen for
children. Thank you for be-
lieving our children deserve
a chance to experience a va-
riety of things. They do live
what they learn and they can
only be what they see.
Listed below are special
people who helped sponsor
children so they could be a


part of this very educational,
rewarding and first time ex-
perience for some: Maceo
Howell, Freddie Scott,
Bernard Perry, Helen
Hobbs, Tammy Law, Ryan
Mitchell, Catherine Cason,
Darrell Davis, Willonese T.
Adams, Norma Tillman,
Isaac Chandler, Gene Chan-
dler, Patricia Wynn, Hamil-
ton FAMU Alumni Chapter,
Heath Rose and Anthony
Williams. Thank you so
much to each of you and to
the chaperones. Our chil-
dren were wonderful and it
was an awesome day!
Currently we have the
following Hamilton stu-
dents attending FAMU:
Melissa Daniels (basketball
team), Dinah Scott, Leon
Daniels, Jr. (football team),
and Lionel Combs. We
have former Hamilton grad-
uates Angela Williams-

rently attending FAMU

Beneath static gray skies, the sound of a fire siren rang
to signify the Veterans Day gathering held Wednesday
morning at the Veteran's Flag Memorial in the Live Oak
Cemetery
Nearly 200 people from the community attended the
celebration to pay tribute to the men and woman who
have served and protected this country and to those who
continue to put their lives on the line.
"I personally first just want to say thank you for what
you've done and for what you continue to do," said guest
speaker Buddy Williams, Chief of Live Oak Police.
Although he never served in the military himself,
Williams said he's proud to be an American, a member of
the local community and within the midst of the veterans
and service personnel Wednesday.
"You men and women gave some of the best years of
your life in service to our country," he said. "On this day,
our county, our city and our country say thank you."
Cmdr. A.L. Miller, of the Suwannee Disabled Veteran's
Memorial Chapter 126, master of ceremonies, said the
Wednesday turnout was great, despite hazy skies.
"It shows that the community is behind its veterans and
really appreciates the veterans. That's what keeps us
going the support of the population," he said.
One by one, he read off the names of area veterans who
had passed on since last year's ceremony. Soon thereafter,
rifle blasts rang out as members of the Florida National
Guard performed a 21-gun salute. Trumpeters from the
Suwannee High Band played Taps softly in the distance.
Randel W. King, 89, a local veteran who served in the
Army's 29th Infantry at Fort Benning, said the
Wednesday ceremony was a wonderful occasion.
"To everyone military men and woman, and the
community," he said, "keep up the good work."
Phillip Smith, 25, Army Staff Sgt. with the local Guard
unit, said, "It's good to know that there are people out
there who care, and it's good to be in a community where
people show up to things like this."
Smith served a term in Iraq from April 2003 to April
2004.
Other poignant moments at Wednesday's ceremony
included the singing of the National Anthem by Linda
Dye, the leading of the Pledge of Allegiance by Loyd
Hall, and invocation and benediction by Dr. David Teems.
Lunch was served following the ceremony at the
Memorial Chapter's office.
The words of an unsigned poem read by Cmdr. Miller
during the ceremony summed up the day's events:
"It's the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us the
freedom of the press.
It's the Soldier, not the poet, who has given us the
freedom of speech.
It's the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures our
right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It's the Soldier who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is
draped by the flag."

'Breast Friends Forever'


"We are what we eat" was the message that Dr.
Cherylle Hayes conveyed to over 40 people recently at
the "Breast Friends Forever" breast cancer awareness
seminar at Lake City Medical Center. "This is a problem
of the Western world. We don't see this problem in China
or India," said Hayes.
Many ladies came dressed in pink to hear Hayes, a
radiation-oncologist from North Florida Regional Cancer
Center, speak on the subject "Is my diet good enough to
beat Breast Cancer?"
"You can cut your breast cancer risk almost in half by
exercising more and following a healthier diet," Hayes
said.


Hayes admits to loving food and being a chocoholic,
but says that c\ c, IIiinii needs to be done in moderation.
If I eat a chocolate cookie today then I will have salad for
dinner tonight."
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women
and the second leading cause of death. One in three
women is at risk of developing cancer of some kind in
their lives. One in eight is at risk of developing breast
cancer. "It doesn't matter what age you are, you need to
move," Hayes said.
If we exercise a little more and eat a little less we will
increase our quality of life while decreasing our chance
of developing breast cancer.

Live Oak Church of God
to celebrate 90th Homecoming


The Live Oak Church of God will
celebrate their 90th Homecoming on
Sunday, Nov. 22. Homecoming is a
special time set aside each year to
reflect on our heritage and past
blessings with thanksgiving and to
eagerly look forward with purpose
and obedience to follow the leading
of the Lord. It is a beautiful time of
reconnecting with church friends and
family from the past and acquainting
and embracing new friendships.
The special guests for
Homecoming this year will be
former staff member Rev. Nathan
Wachob and the local gospel singing
group Delivered. Rev. Wachob has


pastored four churches since leaving
Live Oak. He and his wife Mary and
sons Zach and Alex live in
Tallahassee. He will be preaching
the Homecoming message. The
local singing group Delivered will
be in concert that morning also.
Delivered is a group of young people
who are fulfilling their calling of
ministering through Southern Gospel
music. Their youthfulness, sincerity
and commitment to their calling are
an encouragement to people of all
ages. Singing new, uplifting songs as
well as bringing back songs of old is
appealing to all audiences. Delivered
offers hope and inspiration as they


share the message of God and His
love for all people.
Services will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Following the morning service, we
will join together for an old
fashioned Homecoming dinner-on-
the-grounds in the Family Life
Center.
The Live Oak Church of God has
been a vital part of Suwannee
County since 1919. Pastor Fred
Watson and congregation would like
to extend an invitation to our many
friends, families and members to
come and join us for Homecoming.
The church is located at 9828 US
Hwy 129 S.


The seminar, held during Breast Cancer Awareness
Month, was sponsored by Lake City Medical Center
Women's Health, North Florida Cancer Center and the
Primary Care Center of Live Oak.

County Ministers Alliance and the Suwannee County
Pastor's Prayer Fellowship, sponsor this annual oppor-

blessings.
There will be a canned food offering for Love Inc.
as well as a cash offering. Americans have been thank-
ing God for His blessings dating back to Virginia in
1607 and New England in 1620. Our first president,
George Washington, proclaimed our first National
Thanksgiving in 1789. Following this 1789 day of
Thanksgiving, the various states rather than the Presi-
dent generally proclaim observances. In 1863, Presi-
dent Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation making
the last Thursday of November a National Day of
Thanksgiving. In 1941, Congress established the fourth
Thursday of November as an annual day of Thanksgiv-
ing.
The pastors of our community invited everyone to
join us in this TIh ,,,o,I.- v;*,, worship. For additional in-

By Paul Haas
Suwannee County
Fire Marshal

The National Fire Protection Association is
endorsing U.S. Fire Administration's Install.
Inspect. Protect. campaign and urging
residents to install smoke alarms and
sprinklers.
To prevent these deaths, USFA, a division
of the Federal Emergency Management
Agency is sponsoring a nationwide Install.
Inspect. Protect. campaign designed to raise
awareness about how functioning, properly
installed smoke alarms can lower a person's
chances of dying in a fire. NFPA is
supporting this critical effort to
reduce injuries and the loss of life.
"Smoke alarms are one of the
greatest fire protection
devices of our time and
have significantly
contributed to the decline
in home fire fatalities
since the late 70s," said
James M. Shannon,
president of NFPA.
"But it's not enough
to randomly put up
one smoke alarm and
forget about it. In
addition to placing
smoke alarms in
recommended areas,
they must be kept in
good working order,
which includes testing
them monthly, changing
batteries at least once a
year, and making sure that
they are never disconnected."
"In addition to smoke alarms,
fire sprinklers can further reduce
home fire deaths because it is simply
not acceptable to say that roughly 3,000
deaths per year are OK when we know we can
do better," Shannon added.
If a there is a reported home fire, the risk of
dying decreases by about 80 percent when
sprinklers are present.
"If a fire breaks out in your home while
you're asleep, how will you know? Having a
working smoke alarm is like having a fire
safety official on duty in your home, 24 hours
a day," said Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator
Glenn A. Gaines. "Working smoke alarms will
alert you to the fire and we know
conclusively, a residential sprinkler system
can help put the fire out." Gaines adds,
"smoke alarms and sprinklers are able to
provide residents the time it takes to get
everyone out of the house, before firefighters
have to come in."
NFPA offers the following tips on smoke
alarms:
As a minimum, install smoke alarms in
every sleeping room, outside each separate
sleeping area, and on every level of the home,
including the basement. Larger homes may
require additional smoke alarms to provide a
minimum level of protection.
For the best protection, interconnect all
smoke alarms throughout the home. When one
sounds, they all sound.
Wireless battery-operated interconnected
smoke alarms are now available.
An ionization smoke alarm is generally
more responsive to flaming fires and a


photoelectric smoke alarm is genera
responsive to smoldering fires. For t
protection both types of alarms or
combination ionization and photoel
alarms are recommended.
Choose a smoke alarm that has
of a recognized testing laboratory.
Smoke alarms should be install
from the kitchen to prevent false ala
Generally, they should not be closer
feet to a cooking appliance.
A smoke alarm between 10 and
a


'11l'


4


cooking
appliance must have a hush feature,
temporarily reduces the sensitivity c
alarm, or be a photoelectric type.
Test smoke alarms at least once
using the test button.
Make sure everyone in your hor
the sound of the smoke alarm.
Smoke alarms with non-replace.
batteries are designed to remain effe
10 years. If the alarm chirps, warning
battery is low, replace the entire smc
right


lly more away. For smoke alarms with any other type
the best of battery, replace batteries at least once a
year. If that alarm chirps, replace only the
ectric battery.
Replace all smoke alarms, including
the label alarms with 10-year batteries and hardwired
alarms when they are 10 years old or sooner if
ed away they do not respond properly when tested.
rms. NFPA is aware of research indicating that
than 10 sleeping children don't always awake when a
smoke alarm activates. While this research is
20 feet of worrisome, we shouldn't allow them to
obscure the fact that smoke alarms are highly
effective at reducing fire deaths and injuries.
NFPA would like to reaffirm the value
of the smoke alarms already available
to protect people from home fire
deaths and voice its concern
S about the number of U.S.
households without these
early warning devices.
While 96% of
American homes
have at least one
smoke alarm, no
smoke alarms were
present or none
operated in two
S out of five (41
percent) of the
reported home
fires between
2003-2006.
Almost two-thirds
of home fire deaths
resulted from fires
in homes with no
smoke alarms or no
working smoke
alarms.
NFPA emphasizes the
need to continue planning
and practicing home fire
escape plans and to make sure
everyone in a home can be awakened
by the sound of the smoke alarm. NFPA
suggests practicing the escape plan during
which the smoke alarm is activated so all
which family members know its sound.
f the Every home fire escape plan is different,
and every family should know who will and
a month who won't awaken at the sound of the smoke
alarm. If someone doesn't wake up when the
ne knows alarm sounds during a drill, the family should
design an escape plan that assigns a grown-up
able who is easily awakened by the alarm to wake
-ctive for the sleepers, perhaps by yelling "FIRE,"
g that the pounding on the wall or door, or blowing a
oke alarm whistle.

home at the time of the fire,
according to reports.
Volunteer firefighters
from the Wellborn Fire De-
partment were some of the
first to respond to the
scene.
"When I came it was al-
ready fully involved," said
Wellborn Fire Chief Tom
Maynard.
"A semi driver came
through flashing his lights
and blowing his horn and
got on his radio to alert us
about the fire. The building
was half-gone when we ini-
tially got started with it."
Before firefighters ar-
rived, a neighbor had al-
ready rescued Whisnart's
dog from the burning
building, Maynard said.
Whisnart, who rents the
building from the Wellborn
Community Association,
was away at the time.
"There was what seemed
like gunpowder and bullet
explosions going off when
we arrived," Maynard said.
Conner said the noise
sounded like small explo-
sions, "possibly paint cans
or an air compressor. There


was all kinds of debris and
objects flying across the
street," he said.
Firefighters were able to
get the mini explosions un-
der control before focusing
their attention on the inter-
nal fire, Maynard said.
Several fire tankers were
used to extinguish the
flames. An Oshkosh 6,000
gallon supertanker, 5,000
and 2,500 gallon Wellborn
tankers, and lighting trucks
all aided in tackling the
blaze. Nearly 30 career and
volunteer firefighters
worked the scene, Conner
said.
In addition to the Well-
born Volunteer Department
and Suwannee County
Fire/Rescue, volunteer fire
departments from Fal-
mouth, McAlpin, the
Ranchettes and Luraville
all arrived to aid in the ef-
fort.
"Volunteers were the he-
roes here tonight," Conner
said. "They came from all
over the place and really
stepped up to the plate to
help out."
No injuries were report-
ed. The cause of the fire re-
mains under investigation.

According to Sheriff's Deputy Scott Senea, a witness
spotted Bloxham and the minor in a vehicle in row nine of
the Wal-Mart parking lot on US 129 North engaging in
sexual acts. The report by Senea said the incident oc-
curred around 3:40 p.m.
Bloxham was read his Miranda rights by Sgt. Danny
Watson before being transported to the Suwannee County
Jail.

viously it means a lot," said
Suwannee head coach Jer-
ry Odom.
The Bulldogs enter
tonight's game fresh off a
win against Baldwin last
week. They defeated the
Indians 37-6.
Suwannee's record is 4-
5, 2-3 in District 2-2A. The
4A Tigers are 6-2, 4-0 in
their district. But that does-
n't deter Odom.
"They're a good football
team, a solid team," said
Odom. "But we can handle
them. They run a good
spread offense but their


running back is key. He's a
big strong runner and we
got to do a good job con-
trolling him. You can't let
anyone have their way on
your field and that's just
what we got to do."
Democrat columnist
Tom Daniels said the tradi-
tion of the Oaken Bucket
must be important because
"the last two times we beat
them the Lake City coach
got fired."
Suwannee lost to the
Tigers 47-0 last year in
Lake City.
Senior Night starts at
6:45 p.m. Kick off is at
7:30.


Tables are turned


Continued From Page 1A

The meeting, and those
prior, saw much support
for Smart, who finished a
close second to Ken Duce
for the seat in 2008.
One of Smart's support-
ers, Alonzo Smith, com-
mended the mayor for "fi-
nally getting to that name
of Mr. Henry Smart."
"I want you to dig deep
and think about what
you're voting for, it's the
people," Smith told the
council. "Having a district
hanging out there does a
great disrespect to not only
the citizens of that commu-
nity, but to the city as a
whole."
The mayor's letter of


nomination consisted of
one sentence. Nobles' prior
recommendations dis-
cussed candidates' per-
ceived strengths at some
length.
"There was no need in
going into any further de-
tail about it," Nobles re-
sponded when asked about
the brevity of the letter.
"Either the council was go-
ing to approve or disap-
prove. I don't think no
matter what I wrote would
have mattered anyway."
Nobles said he would
make future recommenda-
tions in the same manner.
Nobles will make a
fourth recommendation to
the council at a future
meeting.

Dot McGee is pain-free after surgery to treat a pinched nerve in her neck.


Valdosta, Georgia resident
Dot McGee had pain so bad in
her arm and shoulder that she
would often wake up "crying
like a baby," she said.
Dot said she went to three
different doctors and none of them
could diagnose her condition.
Fortunately, her fourth trip to
the doctor was to the Hughston
Clinic in Valdosta where she
saw an orthopaedic spine surgeon
who correctly diagnosed that
Dot had a herniated disc in her
neck. The ruptured disc was
"pinching" a nerve that stretched
from Dot's neck to her upper
extremities. Hence, the terrible
pain in her arm and shoulder.


Dot had surgery at Jack
Hughston Memorial Hospi-
tal to fix her condition. The
relief from the pain was
immediate, she said.
"If you have to have
surgery, that's the place to be,"
said Dot, who has five adult
children and eight grandchil-
dren. "It was the best hospital
experience I've ever had.
The people are so pleasant
and everybody made me feel
so comfortable."
Dot said she has a new
appreciation for Hughston.
"I will tell everybody that's
where they need to go.
They are the best."

tal would benefit the city.
"I feel like David and
Goliath here," Mena said at
the meeting. "I think it's
going to be very positive to
their neighborhood. I'm
trying to invest thousands
of dollars to start a business
here. We're professional
and careful. We want to
make our clients happy."
Councilman Ed Rewis,
who lives in the neighbor-
hood, said he was con-
cerned with parking and
drainage issues.
"The only parking will
be in the back of the house.
Any parking you do back
there will divert the water
to the neighbors' homes,"
said Rewis.
Mena wanted Rewis to
abstain from voting since
he lived in the area, citing
what he saw as a potential
conflict of interest. Some
in the gallery proceeded to
boo following the com-
ment. Sullivan told the
council she was upset with
the remark and said Rewis


was just doing his job as
their representative.
"We as the citizens of
that community voted him
in to make these decisions
for us," said Sullivan
among cheers from the
crowd. "And that's what
we expect."
City Attorney Ery Sell-
ers said Rewis was not "in-
eligible simply because he
lives in that area or vicinity."
Sellers said Rewis would
have to personally gain from
what he was voting on in or-
der to be ineligible.
Councilman John Hale
said he didn't know why
the Planning and Zoning
Board had unanimously
approved the land use
change when so many resi-
dents opposed it.
"I was kind of surprised
that it was all unanimous to
support it when all those in
the neighborhood were
against it," said Hale.
"Sometimes you got to lis-
ten those in the area."
The vote was 3-1 with
Councilman Mark Stewart

Porter to make

another run for

Dist. 11 House seat

Elizabeth Porter will try
once again to unseat Debbie
Boyd for the District 11 state
House seat. Porter filed paper-
work to make her candidacy

"I have been humbled by
the outpouring of encourage-
ment and support urging me to
complete this journey that we
began over a year ago," Porter,
a Republican, said in a press
release. "I am excited that we Elizabeth Porter
are renewing our drive to
bring true conservative representation to District 11."
In 2008, Porter came within 176 votes, less than one-
quarter of 1 percent, of unseating Boyd, a Democrat.
The 2010 Republican primary is August 24, 2010 and
the general election is November 2.
District 11 covers all or parts of Alachua, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Lafayette and Suwannee counties.



Police impersonator

gets 9 months' jail time
By Carnell Hawthorne Jr.
Sean Edward Davis, of Live Oak,
was sentenced last Thursday to nine
months in the Suwannee County Jail
for battery and ordered to serve three
concurrent 5-year probation terms
for falsely impersonating an officer, Sean Edward
according to court documents. Davis
In September, Davis was arrested
for claiming to be a narcotics officer in need of office
cleaning, a sheriff's report showed. Women who ap-
plied for the job were told they had to undergo a pat-
down search as a matter of procedure.

Rant

Continued From Page 6A


I think it should be
mandatory that if people
want to submit something
to Rant and Rave, they
should have to sign their
name to it. It's easy to be
critical and throw blame
around when you have the
luxury of doing it anony-
mously. I'm curious how
many complainers and
name callers we would
have if they had to claim
their insults and sarcasm.
Have some backbone and
courage...
Missy Norris

To respond to the peo-
ple who have a problem
with the Hispanics in
Suwannee County. Have
you ever heard of equal
opportunity? Whether or
not the Hispanics that
come to our lovely coun-
try take advantage of it is
a different story. Like it or
not, Hispanics are becom-
ing the majority of the
population in Florida. Just
like S. FL...Soon enough
you WILL have to be
bilingual to get a job in
northern Florida. Stop be-
ing so ignorant and think-
ing EVERY HISPANIC
stuck across the border.
And yeah, maybe some of
them get arrested for dri-
ving without an ID... but
at least its not over any-


Si'


Rave

thing major like drugs,
sexual abuse, battery, or
theft like most of the oth-
er Live Oakeans! I could
name a couple Hispanics
in Live Oak that have
built a very successful life
out of their opportunity
here.

Why did Mayor Nobles
have words of praise for
his other selections but
nothing to say about Mr.
Smart? If you didn't know
that the mayor knew Mr.
Smart was not getting no
votes from Stewart and
Rewis, then I have a
bridge to sell you.

SPORTS COMMENTARY


Where are they?


Melody Christian Academy's Shawn Jackson signed a letter of intent Wednesday to play basketball for Murray State
University in Kentucky. Jackson is the first athlete from the academy to receive a Division 1 scholarship. Jackson at-
tended Melody since the 10th grade. For two years he was the most valuable player, conference MVP for two years, of-
fensive MVP for 2007-08 and defensive player for 2008-09. For two years running he made the all-tournament team in
Dayton, Tenn. In 2007 he was awarded the most outstanding sophomore forward in Florida. Jackson wanted to thank
his mom, sisters, Aunt Tiff and Aunt Cookie for being there for him. He always wanted to thank his coaches and espe-
cially God. Pictured sitting from left: Pastor Rev. Charles Graham, Daijanae Smith (sister), Adrienne Linton (mother),
Jackson, coach Mike Raines and Principal Amanda Davis. Back row from left: Brandon Raines, Arelius Tomlinson

Turner breaks By JeffWaters
Suwannee High School's Ryne Turner broke the school

The sports
world has over

we ever see a two sport
star again? Bo Jackson
could hit a baseball with
one arm farther then most
could with two. Bo could
also run a football better
then most, but injuries
ended his legend. Deion
Sanders was an All Pro
corerback who came


within a couple of stolen
bases of leading the
Major Leagues. Michael
Jordan was arguably the
best basketball player
ever, but he couldn't hit a

Those are the easy

The Suwannee Middle School wrestling team hit the
mat Oct. 26 for the first time this season.
The first day of official practice yielded over 40 stu-
dents. For two weeks prior to the start of the 2009-2010
season, the entire team had been attending the 21st Cen-
tury after school program at the school. The program has
afforded the students time to work on that day's assign-
ments, as well as follow a designed curriculum, including
physical activity. Attendance in the program is mandatory
and will take place prior to the start of daily practice.
This year's team returns a number of wrestlers from
last year. North Florida champions Shawn Brown,
Hunter Cason and Jerry Willis all return for their 8th
grade season. Dallas Ogburn, Dalton Cone, Sasha Key,

Where are they?

baseball career. Dave
DeBusschere played
baseball before becoming
an NBA star, so did Gene
Conley. Now we might
see another Ron Widby or
Ralph Terry.
Widby played some
basketball for the ABA
but will be remembered as
a punter for the Dallas
Cowboys. Ralph Terry
was the goat of the 1960
World Series giving up a
homerun to Bill
Mazeroski. He was the
hero of the 1961 World
Series, picking up two
wins against the Reds. He
retired as a golf pro and
spent time on the senior
tour in its infancy. Rick
Rhoden, another
outstanding MLB pitcher,
plays an occasional senior
event. Johnny Bench and
Michael Jordan have been
given exemptions but
were never contenders.
Some athletes could
have pursued other sports
but didn't. Jackie
Robinson was the best
teenage tennis player in


California and probably
could have played any
sport at the professional
level but choose baseball.
John Havlicek and Earl
Monroe were also
outstanding tennis players.
Tom Glavine played
minor league hockey. I
remember UF having a
punter named Herbert
Perry. John Elway signed
with the Yankees.
Herschel Walker never
had career opportunities in
bobsledding. Randy Dean,
a quarterback for the 1964
Giants, was ranked as the
number 1 handball player
in the country. Bob
Gibson toured with the
Globetrotters. Chuck
Connors toiled for the
Cubs and Dodgers before
becoming the Rifleman!
Will we ever see their
likes again? In today's
society would Jim Thorpe
been able to compete as a
track athlete in the
Olympics, play Major
League baseball, and be
remembered as one of the
greatest football players
ever? The athletes of
today are probably bigger,
faster and stronger, but to
play two sports in this age
of overlapping? Maybe, I
will let you know.

Born July 6, 1960, Lorrie is the third of five chil-
dren, is a mom of two and grandmother of two. She
has a personality plus, willing to do anything for any-
one (with-in reason) as she has a big heart. Her soft
spoken voice is a plus but she does have one flaw! She
has a very mean bowling ball with a fast swing and
speed.
Lorrie came from a family of bowlers and decided
to get into it at age 36, here in Live Oak.
She just kept climbing the ladder and she is now on
top....
Lorrie is also a charter member of "Suwannee 500
Bowling Association."
We love you Lorrie and good luck in the future,
Your sister members of Suwannee 500 Club.

You'd better listen


By David H Matier
Doctor of Pastoral C. ... h,,
dmatier@windstream.net

What made the ancient Jews
stand out to their neighbors
wasn't their own strength and
military prowess but God's
movement in their midst. Early
on in their history when they
approached Jericho, while they
were faithful to the Lord, Rahab
the harlot told the spies Joshua was
sent to spy out the land.
"I know that the Lord hath given
you the land, and that your terror is
fallen upon us, and that all the in-
habitants of the land faint because
of you. For we have heard how the
Lord dried up the water of the Red
sea for you, when ye came out of
Egypt; and what ye did unto the
two kings of the Amorites, that
were on the other side Jordan,..."
(Joshua 2:9, 10). When Israel
walked with God, He fought their
battles because they were His cho-
sen people!
It is obvious that God has chosen
to bless our nation. It doesn't ap-
pear to be any accident that a little
nation started by renegade soldiers
fighting one of the greatest armies
in the world at that time the
British Army; the Red Coats,
would ever have been accom-
plished without the hand of God in
the mix. Great men of God sacri-
ficed their lives to write the Consti-
tution of the United States Most
of whom were Preachers of the
Word of God. They believed that
the Bible you and I have the privi-
lege of reading is the Word of God
and did their best to obey; obeyed
the Word of God like the early Is-


raelites did and as
long as they listened
to God, God blessed.
Do you think it is
any accident that our
country has been
blessed to have auto-
Ad o---- mobiles massed pro-
duced, thanks to
Henry Ford and
FREE ENTERPRISE, to be the
first in flight, commercial aviation.
It is because God blessed our na-
tion because, at least until the last
30 or 40 years America has had
churches that have taken a stand on
the teachings of the Bible. Pastors
didn't act like anything goes. At
one time a preacher didn't have to
be told that life starts in the womb
that it is a child not a fetus. He
didn't have to be told that homo-
sexuality is wrong because the
Bible makes it very clear (Soon if
your pastor preaches the Word of
God it is possible he could be ar-
rested for a hate crime because he
opposes "same sex" marriage,
etc.). Some churches have even
scummed to homosexual pastors!
These churches definitely are not
listing to God's Word God com-
municates with you through His
word. You are not listening!
In Jeremiah chapter 13, the
prophet Jeremiah is told to hide a
"girdle" and after many days the
Lord tells him to go back and get
the "girdle." And then Jeremiah
discovers, "...behold, the girdle was
marred, it was profitable for noth-
ing. Then the word of the Lord
came unto me saying, Thus said
the Lord, After this manner will I
mar the pride of Judah, and the
great pride of Jerusalem. This evil


people, which refuse to hear my
words, which walk in the imagina-
tion of their heart, and walk after
other gods, to serve them and to
worship them, shall even be as this
girdle, which is good for inl Iilil."
(Jeremiah 13:7-10). Will America's
"Pride" soon be marred? Is there
an upcoming, coming? We must
listen to God or expect the conse-
quences.
Look around. Quit blaming the
situation America is in on the
politicians (of course they are as
responsible as anyone else when it
regards whether or not they are
willing to listen to God), But
America listen to God. You'll keep
the blessing the way you got it -
even if it is too late for II Chroni-
cles 7:14 because what you are
witnessing is what men of old told
you would see as the end ap-
proached (Romans 1:18-32).

Don't veer from



God's word


Have you watched
the show called "Are
you smarter than a
5th grader?" I did.
Once. Then I decid-
ed that since I'm
probably not, I'd
rather it not be
proven over and
over with each new
episode. Indeed, it is
a humbling day in He;
the life of any par- Ma
ent, to realize your a
child has outsmarted By
you, no matter the
age. You need to
know that your kids are ex-
perts at reading you, and
they instinctively know to
ask you a critical question at
the exact moment that 47
other things are demanding
your attention. They later
swear that you said yes,
even though you cannot
even recall the question. You
know then that you've been
had.
Cheer up, help is on the
way! In the book of
Proverbs, the Bible has this
to say:
"Listen, my son, to your
father's instruction and do
not forsake your mother's
teaching. They will be a gar-
land to grace your head and
a chain to adorn your neck."
(Proverbs 1:8-9)
While these verses appear
to be directed to children
and their responsibility to
respect and obey their par-
ents, there is more to this
passage than meets the eye.
In the original language of
the Old Testament, the
words "instruction" and
"teaching" give us insight as
to how our job as parents
can be fulfilled. The Hebrew
word for "instruction" is de-
fined as discipline, correc-
tion and doctrine, while
"teaching" actually trans-
lates from the word "Torah."
Torah is the Hebrew name
for the first five books of the
Bible written by Moses, and
is considered part of the
"doctrine" of Christian be-
lievers.
This lengthy explanation
was to make a significant
point. Our instruction and
teaching of our children
should be straight from
God's Word. We veer off
course when we simply
teach our children our pref-
erences and opinions. The
truth is, our children most
likely will form many differ-
ent preferences and opinions
in life. When we teach the
truth of the Bible, we are as-


a

t
mg


sured that these
truths will never
change. This is
one of my fa-
vorite things
about God. In our
world, where
everything is con-
stantly changing,
we can trust that
His Word will
ir never change. In
Matthew 24:35,
terms (in red letters!)
SJesus said, "Heav-
,ie Land en and earth will
pass away, but my
words will never pass
away." It is also worth not-
ing that this instruction is to
come from Dads and Moms,
not Sunday School teachers
or pastors. Their job is to re-
inforce what our children
are being taught at home.
We need to know what the
Bible has to say, not only for
our own lives, but also to
fulfill this responsibility to
our children.
It is interesting that verse
9 tells us that this type of in-
struction and teaching will
be a garland around the head
and a chain adorning the
neck. These are promises of
blessing in achievement and
honor. A "garland" around
the head refers to a wreath,
not unlike the ones be-
stowed on the victor of vari-
ous types of competition,
and the "chain" refers to the
practice of royalty offering
gold necklaces to those
whom they intended to re-
ward for acts of bravery and
honor. We all want these
kinds of rewards for our
children. What is our re-
ward? First, we see our chil-
dren blessed, and second,
admit it. It feels good to
know that at least they can't
outsmart God! Let's take our
job seriously and instruct
our sons and daughters in
what will last. Because their
hearts matter!

Blessings, Angle

The summer in my rear view mirror


By James L. Snyder

I awoke last Tuesday with a
strange feeling I had missed
something. Not only that, but I
was shivering like a polar bear
without his pajamas. I knew
something was wrong but to put
my finger on it was just too ear-
ly in the morning for me. I like
starting my days slowly. At my
age just getting up is quite an
accomplishment.
I felt my forehead to see if I
had a fever. I found my fore-
head easily enough, just above
my eyes, but I can never tell if I
am hot, cold or lukewarm.
The condition advanced to
such a point that I had to swal-
low my pride and inquire of the
Gracious Mistress of the Parson-
age. She can look at me and tell
me if I am sick or not. Usually,
I'm sick.
So I approached her and said,
"Am I sick or what?"
Quick as a wink she said,
"Off the top of my head I would
say you are 'or what.'"
And this was just the begin-
ning of my day.
Then my wife looked at me
and said, "Why do you ask?"
So I explained to her about


the feeling I had that something
was missing and on top of that,
I could not quit shivering. She
felt my forehead to see if I had
a fever, and I did not. When she
turned her back on me, I was
tempted to stick out my tongue
and say "AHH."
"Well," she said, "you're not
sick and I don't understand how
you could be cold."
I looked aimlessly out the
window and began to shiver
more. "It looks like it's cold out
there," I complained.
My wife looked at me with
one of those looks that every
husband knows and fears, and
said, "It should be cold outside,
its winter, for Pete's sake."
"Winter?" I explained. "What
happened to summer?"
"Oh you silly boy," my wife
chuckled, "summer's over and
winter's brewing."
I just stared out the window at
the bleakness of the morning,
wondering where in the world
summer went. At the moment, it
did not seem possible to me that
summer was over. Is that not the
way things go? Just as soon as
you get used to something, it's
over.
I suppose it's because a per-


son gets so busy doing mundane
daily things that he fails to see
the whole picture. If you do not
enjoy what you are doing right
now, one day you will look back
and wonder where in the world
it disappeared.
At my age, it seems that look-
ing back has become quite a ca-
reer. I remember the old folks
when I was young used to say,
"I remember the good old
days." I often wondered what
they were talking about. Now I
know.
When I was young, my whole
life was looking forward, but
now that I am old, I spend part
of my time looking at the
rearview mirror. That is the
wonderful advantage of getting
older. When you are young, you
do not have anything to look
back to. The older you get the
more you have to look back on.
Several things I look back to:
One is memories I have made
throughout the years. Often
when my wife and I are setting
together one of us will say, "Do
you remember when...?" Then
one of us will recite a wonderful
memory from the past and have
a good laugh together.
Maybe this is why older peo-


ple laugh so much. I know it is
why I laugh a lot.
One of the wonderful things
about a person's memory is that
it is personal. I will not say that
I enhance my memories, of
course, I do but I will not con-
fess to it. Then, if it is my mem-
ory I should be able to recite it
any which way I please. I par-
ticularly enjoy those memories
that I share with no one else.
Because then, I have the free-
dom to remember it any which
way I please.
I once listened to a very old
woman share memories of her
childhood. At the time, she was
in her early 90s. As I drove
away from listening to her I
thought to myself, I wonder
how much of those memories
were really true. Then again,
they were her memories not
mine.
Also in looking back, there
are those things we refer to as
regrets. I suppose everybody
tries to live in such a way to
keep regrets to a minimum. I
have a long list of things I re-
gret doing or saying or not do-
ing or not saying.
The one category of regrets I
have are those things that I have


done that my wife knows about.
Talk about memory?
This brings up the difference
between a husband and a wife.
A husband cannot remember
anything and his wife cannot
forget anything. But between
the two, they lick the platter
clean.
The apostle Paul practiced the
fine art of forgetting. He wrote,
"Brethren, I count not myself to
have apprehended: but this one
thing I do, forgetting those
things which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those things
which are before, I press toward
the mark for the prize of the
high calling of God in Christ Je-
sus." (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV).
My rearview mirror is full and
the temptation is to focus entire-
ly on them, but missing the
scenery in front of me.
