a day shy of a scheduled
Department of Financial
Services hearing that
would have determined
whether he would stay in
practice or not.
"I voluntarily signed
over my license which
was the only option of my

plained. "Financially it
was going to cost us too
greatly to go through with
the hearing, the fees of the
attorney and financially it

'Stamp Out Hunger'

food drive is May 8


The National Associa-
tion of Letter Carriers will P a
hold its annual national S
"Stamp Out Hunger" food
drive on Saturday, May 8. I
For city letter carriers and
rural carriers in Live Oak,
McAlpin, Wellborn, Bran-
ford, O'Brien and other
county post offices in
Suwannee County, this will F Di 'I
be the 18th year the carriers
and their customers have SATURD A
participated in this annual
event that helps stock local
church food pantries across M a *J
Suwannee County.
"We are asking residents to donate non-perishable
food items that include canned soup, juice, pasta, veg-
etables, cereal and rice, but canned food products con-
taining protein are always needed," Postmaster Tehan
said. "These would include canned tuna or chicken as
well as canned stews and peanut butter. Please do not
include any glass or perishable items."
The participating churches and agencies can attest
the food drive is beneficial to their services in the com-
munity. Most people make food donations around the
holidays and tend to donate less in the
summer time. With the assistance
of donated food from the
food drive, the churches -I '
and agencies can save mon- ,. l
ey on food expenses and
purchase additional food,
personal hygiene items or "
help fund other needs.



Car wash/food fundraiser

for youth summer camp

Friendship Baptist youth group will be holding a car
wash this Saturday, May 8, beginning at 9 a.m. until
around 1 p.m. We will also have our "Grub Hut" on
site selling hot dogs and drinks. So come out and sup-
port the youth group in raising money for summer
camp. You will leave with a clean car and a full belly.


II,


models, these graphics bet-
ter suit a last generation
game. The textures are,
quite obviously, dated; the
animations are rigid and
are reused constantly in
cutscenes; and the cars will
make your eyes ache for a
dose of Need for Speed.
The characters themselves
manage to look halfway
decent, which seems out of
place amongst the poor en-
vironments.
The environment itself
deserves a little bit of
praise, however: it's a
large open world consist-
ing of a small rural town
and the surrounding coun-
tryside. You're usually free
to roam about the area,
which is surprisingly big
for a budget title. To top
that off, Deadly Premoni-
tion runs on a real-time
clock; meaning that hours
tick by just as they would
in real life. The various
characters and stores oper-
ate by this clock, being
open and closed at certain
times of the day, or by go-
ing about their own sched-
ules. There are day-to-
night cycles, and there are
even weather cycles; this is
one rainy little town.
The gameplay is a little
better than the graphics,
though it still plays like a
sluggish Resident Evil 4.
The camera is incredibly
touchy, making the view
swing wildly from left to


right when you flick the
right stick. The gunplay is
playable, but don't expect
to win any sort of marks-
man contest here. And that
big environment I men-
tioned before? There are
cars to traverse the large
landscape, though don't
expect a Grand Theft Auto
level of driving. Vehicles
control like brick-filled
bathtubs and only seem to
perform decently on
straight roads.
Now we've reached the
good parts: the story, char-
acters and the various
things you can do in this
"small" town. The story
puts you into the shoes of
one FBI Special Agent
Francis York Morgan, sent
to the small town of
Greenvale to investigate
the murder of a local
teenage girl. Shortly after
his rather amusing arrival
in the town, he finds him-
self caught up in a slowly
expanding web of murder.
More people are being
killed while he investi-
gates, and he has to put a
stop to it quickly to pre-
vent the loss of life.
The many characters, i.e.
suspects, you'll meet are
incredibly diverse: from
the rocker dad who runs
the local grocery store to
the card-collecting gun
storeowner. However, none
of them made as big of an
impact on me as Agent

Morgan himself; this guy
is just as unbalanced as the
serial killer he's chasing.
From his love of cheesy
B-movies to his obsessive
taste in food and coffee,
York stands out as one of
the more memorable char-
acters that most people
won't see. On top of
everything else, he even
has a dual-personality
named Zach who he often
converses with ... even in
front of other people!
You'll find all sorts of
activities to distract your-
self with in the town of
Greenvale: like spying on
the various people or fish-
ing the time away on the
lake. There are many side
quests you can undertake
to learn backstory and gain
rewards, though be care-
ful: if you drag your feet
for too long, you'll miss
your chance to do some of
the more important side
missions. Agent Morgan
will even come across var-


n straight roads.


ious trading cards scat-
tered about the areas
you'll wander through,
which you can show to the
gun storeowner for re-
wards.
So, if you enjoy a
campy, creative story with
interesting characters,
you'll get your twenty
bucks worth here. Howev-
er, if you're looking for a
highly polished experience
like Modem Warfare,
you're better off just play-
ing that. Come here if you
want to hear the main
character discuss various
actors while shooting
imaginary zombies, other-
wise, don't bother. Deadly
Premonition gets a C; I
hope one of the bigger
publishers or developers
gets in touch with the team
behind this one. I'd love to
see what these guys can do
with somebody big back-
ing them!

Members of the Suwannee Democrat editorial board
are Myra C. Regan, publisher, and Robert Bridges,
editor. Our View is formed by that board.





OUR VIEW
Suwannee Democrat



Stunner

Why local politics is better than
sports:
After a bruising campaign for
Mayor, the contenders were neck
and neck on election night. Brant
Helvenston and Sonny Nobles trad-
ed the lead with the announcement
of nearly every precinct's totals.
Then it was over. Nobles 672, Hel-
venston, 670.
Not quite. There remained two
provisional ballots, cast by voters
without proper ID at the polling
place. The canvassing board, led by
Supervisor of Elections Glenda
Williams, compared the signatures
to those on file and saw they
matched. Both votes counted, and
both went to Helvenston.
An absolute stunner, no matter
whose side you were on.
History was made here folks, and
we're glad to have been there to see
it.


The comment of the night came
from an anonymous wit late Tues-
day at the elections office, when it
appeared the Mayor's race might be
decided by the flip of a coin.
"How is it that a place so conserv-
ative it won't allow liquor, will let
an election be decided by gam-
bling," she inquired.


At least one candidate said he let
his kids skip school to help him
campaign on election day. With all
due respect to their teachers, we bet
those kids learned more about
democracy in that one day than in a
whole semester of civics.


The runoffs are set for June 8. If
you haven't registered, you've got
until Monday to do so.


BIBLE VERSE
Do not be anxious about anything, but in
everything, by prayer and petition, with thanks-
giving, present your requests to God. And the
peace of God, which transcends all understand-
ing, will guard your hearts and your minds in
Christ Jesus.

Yes, I am a resident of the Advent Christian Village.
I have a home here. The church did not build my home.
My taxes are right at 4,000 dollars and I wrote my
check to the Suwannee County tax collector not to the
church, so my point is we should get something for our
money. Thank you

Raves to the music park & local law enforcement for
bringing more visitors to our area than we have resi-
dents in the past mo. or so safely & with minimum
problems. This is great for our economy. The Democrat
gets an attaboyy" to for political endorsements. Ya
don't gotta agree with the picks, but at least their
speaking' up! A paper in Tifton, Ga. give us a good write
up on the Suwannee trail too. Now a rant about the lack
of accomadations for these folks to stick around and
spend some$$$. Our area should be promoting recre-
ational & entertainment type business and not everyone
one thinks a buffet is fine dining, until we have liquor
by the drink it just won't happen. No, I am not packing
bags & hitting the interstate neither, so save that lame
reply.

Has the Suwannee Democrat stooped to the all time
low of that of the national media? Can you please tell
me why you would ever consider endorsing a candi-
date? What ever happened to being fair and unbiased?
Isn't that how the news media is supposed to be? Don't
you realize that by endorsing a candidate, you as a news
agency are putting your reputation on the line? You also


FROM OUR READERS


To the Editor:

Thanks to Bishop Frank Allen &
The Church of Jesus Christ of Lat-
ter-day Saints for their Day of Ser-
vice on Saturday, April 24, 2010, at
the Boys & Girls Club of North
Central Florida, Suwannee County
Branch. They moved furniture,
painted a classroom's walls and
floor, painted all the classroom
doors, removed old carpet, donated
a volley ball set and secured the vol-
ley ball posts, cleaned computers,
pressure washed the building and
other areas, removed a cement
block for the kids safety, and in-
stalled a much needed water foun-
tain. We are extremely grateful for
all that they did to help the Boys and
Girls Club. A great big thank you
to W. B. Howland Co., for donating
the pressure washer and to the Live
Oak Paint Center for donating the
paint.
We need other churches and busi-
nesses to come on board. We des-
perately need a sand blaster and vol-
unteers to help finish beautifying
our front entrance.
Later that evening, our 4th Annu-
al Banquet was held at the Florida
National Guard Armory. It was
great to see the kids of the Boys &
Girls Club serving our guests, with
their happy smiley faces and also
singing a musical selection. Our
Speaker was Mr. Manuel Garcia,
General Manager of SITEL in Lake
City. Mr. Garcia is a former Boys &
Girls Club member. Thanks to him
for donating 15 computers to the


lpave
offend people who may be friends, relatives, or co-
workers of the candidate that you DID NOT endorse.
Do you really want to put your reputation as a credible
newspaper on the line by endorsing someone that may
turn out to be a corrupt politician? I would appreciate if
you would please just stick to reporting the news and
keep your political opinions to yourself!

Opinions ours and others' appear only on the Ed-
itorial page, which isi. o-.i., .. for that purpose, and not
in our news columns. Editor

It's a shame that only 35.35 percent of the 3,519 reg-
ister voters for the city election voted. I wonder what
the rest are going to do now, complain rant and rave?
They should have gotten off their buns and voted. Let's
face it, democracy works if you vote. Otherwise we
have no democracy. Good luck Live Oak, flip a coin.
..
I think or wish John Hale would have won cause he
did alot for his district Yullee does not when you want
something done Hale got it done.With Yullee he didn't
his wife screened his calls says he is tired and cant talk
now but go to the next meeting and voice your opin-
ion,he does not care at all he only talk to you when it is
time to vote. Hale, always kept his district intact when
i had a problem and went to him within two days my
problem was solved.Now that we have Yullee back in
we will not get anything done I am not a racist I am a
AFRICAN AMERICAN. And the best man did not win.
.
I was taught the church's role in the community was
to "Love Thy Neighbor", not tell 'em to "pack your
bags" and to save souls, not tax 'em. This deal of lettin'
anybody start a "non-profit corp." and play politics is
clearly man's will, not God's purpose.

Golf-A-thon participants. Thanks to
all our golfers and their many spon-

To the Editor:

Thank you so much for the excel-
lent coverage and assistance in the
fight to save State funding for pub-
lic libraries. Your assistance in
alerting the citizens to the issue was
very helpful in educating all to the
situation and creating citizen action.
I know that the Suwannee Leg-

islative Delegation, the Legislative
leadership and the Governor got
hundreds of contacts from Suwan-
nee County citizens. The citizens
spoke up and thankfully the Legis-
lature listened.
We will have approximately the
same funding next year, so all our li-
braries in Suwannee should remain
open the same hours and be able to
continue to serve.
The Suwannee County Board of
Commissioners, and the Clerk of
the Court, should be commended, as
they did all they could to voice the
need for State support through the
Small County Coalition, the Florida
Association of Counties, and direct-
ly to our local delegation and the
leaders of the Legislature.
Also thanks to the Suwannee
County Friends of the Library who
worked diligently to alert citizens
through all of their local networks,
of clubs, churches, associations, etc.
Thanks too, to our local radio sta-
tions, WVLO and WQHL, who
aired information repeatedly to their
listeners.
Lastly, thanks to the citizens of
Suwannee County, who heard the
message and took action. What a
great county in which to live. The
library staff and supporters are in-
spired by your support.
Again, thanks to the Suwannee
Democrat for featuring this story
and playing a vital role in a success-
ful conclusion for the citizens of
Suwannee County.

Food for Thought

"The Priceless Woman"
This Sunday we will be honoring our Mothers!
The Bible has a lot to say about women. Proverbs
31 gives some descriptions of a priceless woman:
1) She Is A Faithful Woman: 31:11-19 She is
faithful to her husband and he can trust her. She
is faithful to her daily duties and she is
dependable.
2) She Is A Caring Woman: 31:20-25 She
cares about the needs of the poor and reaches out
to the needy. She will prepare for future difficulty
that may face her family. She will make sure her
children have clothing and her home is attractive.
She even cares for her husband's reputation. She
is also respected by her peers.
3) She Is A Wise Woman: 31:26-27 "She opens
her mouth with wisdom." We know the "Fear of
the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" [Ps.
111:10]. Here is a woman who trusts God and she
will instruct her family to do likewise. She also
has her mouth filled with praise. She will look for
reasons to praise God! When you hear words
from her lips, they are full of kindness. She
speaks kindly to her husband and her children.
Her children rise up and call her blessed, her
husband praises her!

The kittens were about 5
to 6 weeks old, thick black
coats, beautiful blue/gray
eyes, and very obviously
used to being held and
played with by people. No
obvious signs of neglect,
very probably had been
well taken care of by

Thanks to these workers,
all six are doing well,
though we are still watch-
ing two of them that are
smaller than the other four.
If you ever find yourself
with a litter that you don't
want, PLEASE do the hu-
mane thing. Call the ani-
mal shelter in your area;
it's a possibility when a lit-
ter needs to be nursed by
their mother but she isn't
available, or bottle fed be-
cause they still haven't
learned to eat food, that
they will be "put down,"
but that's a more humane
solution than "throwing
them out." Shame on you
if you are the ones who
abandoned these kittens
this way; shame on you if
you have just "dumped" an
animal out in the woods or
in a strange neighborhood
counting on their being
able to survive. Better yet,
thanks to you if you have
had your animal spayed or
neutered, because you
have prevented this sce-
nario from happening
again.

stephenie.Iivingston@gafInews.com

JASPER A White Springs man has been charged
with attempted murder after a fight that resulted in a
4-inch gash to his victim's neck, said White Springs
Police Chief Ken Brookins.
Police responded to a call April 21 at around 8 p.m.
reporting a fight that had occurred at a residence on

Bus driver shortage puts

mechanics, even teachers

in the driver's seat

JASPER As a shortage
of local school bus drivers
worsens, bus mechanics
and teachers are finding
themselves in the driver's
seats.
"We simply don't have
enough drivers," said
Hamilton County Superin-
tendent of Schools Martha
Butler. Butler said many
bus mechanics and at least
one teacher have kept the
system going by driving a
bus. "I'm on my way to
getting my own CDL," said
Butler. And if things get
worse, she may have to use
it.
Butler said end-of-year
field trips are already being
re-vamped, along with oth-
er activities where bus dri-
vers are needed.
The average bus driver is
paid $20 an hour and works
two hours in the morning


and two in the afternoon.
Butler said the job is unde-
sirable to many because of
the split in hours. However,
she said it is an excellent
opportunity to acquire a
Commercial Driver's Li-
cense and gain experience.
Butler said the district pro-
vides all training.
"We have a job waiting,"
said Butler.

police found Alonzo Thomas, 54, with a 4-inch gash
to his neck. Thomas reportedly told police Lyndell
Cooks, 23, had cut him before fleeing. A manhunt en-
sued and Cooks was apprehended later that night, said
Brookins.
Brookins said the instrument Cooks allegedly used
to cut Thomas is unknown. An investigation into the
incident is ongoing.

A Lake City man said
he burglarized a Suwan-
nee County home just
two days after being re-
leased from jail in Co-
lumbia County on simi-
lar charges because
"times are tough," police
say.


Brandon
Andrew
Dicks


Suwannee County Sheriff's Deputy
Jake Brooks said 25-year-old Brandon
Andrew Dicks was "discovered by a
neighbor in the act of burglarizing the
residence located" on 41st Road in
southern Suwannee County. He said
Dicks and his brother caused more than
$1,000 in damage gaining entry to the
residence around 7 p.m. on April 11.
"During the course of the burglary
(Dicks) cut (the) power transmission
lines to the residence causing power


supply interruption in (order) to facili-
tate the removal of the copper cables,"
Brooks wrote. Brooks further reported
that Dicks took between $100 and
$300 in property from the residence.
Dicks was said to have been "identi-
fied by the neighbor who witnessed the
burglary in progress, as well as the ve-
hicle license plate from the vehicle
used during the burglary."
Dicks was also seen fleeing the resi-
dence by another neighbor, shortly be-
fore law enforcement arrived, accord-
ing to Brooks.
Dicks was out on bond and charged
with a similar crime in Columbia
County when he burglarized the
Suwannee County home.
Dicks was charged with burglary of a
structure/convoy, criminal mischief
and petit theft. He was booked into the
Suwannee County Jail.

ground deeply rooted in education. He
has taught throughout Columbia County
for more than 15 years and worked more
recently as an administrator and school
counselor.
"I've always wanted to be a principal,"
he said.
Over the last three years, he worked to
receive his master's degree in counseling
and earned an Ed.S. degree in education
leadership about a year ago.
"I've always enjoyed the administra-
tive part of our education system," he ad-
mitted.
For months Thoreson has visited Bran-
ford High on a regular basis "learning the
flow of what everyone does" and is look-
ing forward to bringing his "hometown,


personal touch" to the school.
"I would like to get on the ball with
student scheduling as early as possible,
so as to start off with an education focus
right off the bat. They've been an A
school and I look forward to continuing
that tradition."
Scarborough extends the district's grat-
itude to Ted Roush for the work he has
done at Branford in recent years and ex-
tends a warm welcome to Thoreson.
"We'd like to express our thanks to Ted
Roush and the excellent leadership he has
provided at Branford High. We're excited
to bring Seth Thoreson on board to con-
tinue Branford's standing as an A
school," Scarborough said. "We admire
most his passion for education and his
drive to help young people become suc-
cessful students and model citizens."

agreement signed by Bullock in his insur-
ance fraud trial, he said, "what I was told
is that signing that plea would not affect
my license, but because of the plea we re-
ally didn't have a choice but to face the li-
censing board."
He has willfully chosen to avert the
hearing process and given up his license
for at least two years.
"In 24 months, I can reapply," he said,
which is his intention.
In the meantime, however, "the agency
(Bullock & Associates) will remain in-
tact," Bullock says.
In fact, "Donny McCallister will be the
agent of record. Our staff will remain in-
tact, the name on the building will remain
the same and our clients will not have to
worry about their policies going away,"
Bullock said. "I'm not going anywhere. I
still love this community and will continue
to be involved."
Bullock expressed his gratitude to all
those who remained his customers during
the recent legal proceedings.
"Thanks for sticking by me for three and
a half years," he said.

Recycling now a reality in Suwannee


Continued From Page 1A

Sikes said Reliable Re-
cycling Services of Lake
City will collect cardboard
and mixed paper, such as
newspaper, magazines and
office paper.
"We agreed to try it for a
year," said Sikes. "The
only reason it won't work
is if the company doesn't
make enough profit off


selling it."
He said while the county
may not be making any
money off recyclables just
yet, it will save quite a bit.
"It's going to be based
on the amount of material
we're going to get," he
said. "Even if we break
even we're going to save
$36 a ton to not send it out
of the county," said Sikes.
He said the county and


RRS will have to deter-
mine "what kind of ton-
nage we get and then sit
down and negotiate with
the company to see what
the market is and try to see
if we can make a profit
ourselves."
Sikes is currently work-
ing with a Jacksonville
company on a recycling
deal with glass.
The recycling issue first


came to light after Envi-
ronmental Club members
at Suwannee High School
were told that recyclables
they collected as part of a
project were being sent to
the landfill instead. Sikes
had previously said that
the county has a recycling
program, but only to the
extent that the county can
sell the materials.
Club member and 9th


grade SHS student Mikah
Strickland was "happy we
could have such a positive
effect on the community."
Ninth grader Rachel
Tullis agreed.
"We're proud of what
we have already helped to
accomplish," she said.
"But we are working hard
to have even more recy-
clable things in Suwannee
County. We'd love to see


plastics being recycled
soon."
Club sponsor Amy
Hendry said she's excited
about the changes.
"The environmental
club will begin recycling
paper again. We look for-
ward to the day when we
can start collecting plastics
as well, since it is so detri-
mental to the environment
when it is not recycled."

who didn't come out because of
the rain," said Supervisor of
Elections Glenda Williams,
who showed her displeasure at
the 39 percent overall voter
turnout.
"It's so easy to vote nowa-
days, and there are so many op-
tions for casting your vote -
early voting, absentee I'm
just disappointed the numbers
weren't higher," she said.
"These were very important
elections that involved choos-
ing a new city clerk, a new may-
or."
In fact, the mayor's race end-
ed in an unprecedented dead
heat with both Brant Helven-
ston and incumbent Garth R.
"Sonny" Nobles receiving 672
votes each. At first it appeared
Nobles had won by two votes.
However, two provisional bal-
lots were examined and veri-
fied. Both fell into the column
for Helvenston.


That race, along with the
seats for District 4 City Council
and City Clerk, will all see
runoff elections June 8.
John Yulee Sr. unseated Dis-
trict 1 councilman John Hale
with a 137 to 120 win. Like-
wise, District 3 councilman
David Burch defeated Henry
Smart, 200 to 113.
John Gill and Tom Daniels
will face a runoff to decide
who'll take the City Clerk's
post. The same can be said for
Adam Prins and incumbent
Mark Stewart, who will vie
again for the District 4 City
Council seat.
Supervisor Williams urges
those who voted Tuesday and
scores of others to mark June 8
on their calendars.
"I hope we see a bigger
turnout this go-round because
as we all saw, one vote can real-
ly make a difference."

two with the highest vote count
shall face one another in a run-
off."
Both candidates were pleased
with the resolution of the mat-
ter. Neither had been happy
with the notion of being select-
ed by a draw of straws.
"This is great news," said
Helvenston. "Let's give the
people a chance to vote again."
Nobles shared similar senti-
ments as the two shook hands,
vowing to see one another on
June 8.
"I'm very satisfied," Nobles
said. "It would have been a
mighty cruel way to decide an


election by tossing a coin. The
people need to speak."
According to Jennifer
Roberts, deputy supervisor of
elections in Suwannee, Tues-
day's results were unprecedent-
ed.
"To our knowledge, there's
never been a tie in a city or
county race in Suwannee Coun-
ty," Roberts said.
Two other runoff elections al-
ready scheduled for June 8 pit
John Gill against Tom Daniels
for City Clerk and Adam Prins
against Mark Stewart for City
Council District 4.
City residents may register to
vote in the runoffs as late as
Monday, May 10.


For at least one of the victims in the
case, the news of Bullock's decision to
surrender his license brought mixed feel-
ings.
"I feel for him and his family," said
Dorothy Chauncey, of PBC, Inc.
A $5,000 policy for worker's compensa-
tion she and her husband purchased from
Bullock was never established with Zurich
Insurance Company, although Bullock is-
sued them a certificate stating otherwise. It
was later found that Bullock had never
been authorized to sell policies by Zurich
America Insurance.
A call was placed to Wayne Frier, of
Southern Home Insurance, for whom the
largest charge of felony fraud was levied
toward Bullock, but calls were not re-
turned.
The revocation of Bullock's license is a
"done deal," said Nina Bannister, public
relations representative for the state De-
partment of Financial Services. "It's just a
matter of routing the agreement for signa-
tures. Mr. Bullock signed a settlement
agreement to surrender his license and as a
result of that we will issue an order of re-
vocation. Typically, that takes three or four
days, and that is the process we are in."

Dasilva's bat carries




Suwannee to Sweet 16


By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com

LIVE OAK-A message post-
ed on a dry erase board in the
lockeroom says it all. The goal
is simple -- get to Port St. Lu-
cie: "Let's let our last game be
the state championship game
after we win it all."
Suwannee took their first
step toward that goal pounding
visiting Mount Dora 10-0
Wednesday night in the Class
2A first round playoffs.
Junior rightfielder Ryan
Dasilva made sure he person-
ally sent the Hurricanes home
with a 2-for-2, 5 RBI perfor-
mance.
After an error by the Hurri-
canes shortstop allowed
Suwannee to score two runs,
Dasilva made Mount Dora pay
for back-to-back walks crush-


ing a ball deep over the center-
field fence giving the Bulldogs
an early 5-0 first inning lead.
Suwannee added five more
runs in the third thanks to
three hits. Blake Swann and
Andrew Schroeder singled and
scored on Dasilva's 2 RBI
double increasing the lead to
7-0. Another error and a Justin
Hicks RBI double made it 10-
0 after three innings.
Hicks (1-for-3), Swann (1-
for-2), Schroeder (1-for-2) and
Dasilva (2-for-2) led the Bull-
dogs offensively.
That was all starter Matt
Moses (7-1) would need as he
cruised through five innings to
get the win, allowing three hits
and three walks and no runs,
while striking out six.
"Matt was great tonight and
has been all season long,"
Suwannee head coach Shan-


non Jernigan said. "He's our
ace and for him to go all the
way and shut out a team going
for their twentieth win of the
season, that's really impres-
sive."
Moses was able to keep the
Hurricanes off guard with a
combination of pitches but one
was clutch.
"His breaking pitch was ef-
fective tonight, although
they're a good fastball hitting
team," Jernigan said.
Getting healthy and getting
Moses (high ankle sprain),
Stuart Brown (ankle) and
Jackson Brown (groin) all
back has helped Suwannee get
hot at the right time winning
four in a row.
Part of the reason they have
peaked is their offense, which
has scored 36 runs over the
last four games, including run


ruling their last two oppo-
nents.
"We're very confident right
now, as we have a chance to
win every game," Jernigan
said. "We're getting good
pitches to hit and being patient
at the plate and being aggres-
sive."
Suwannee (20-9) will host
Ocala Trinity Catholic, a 13-3
winner over Fort White Tues-
day night, 7 p.m. Friday in the
second round of the playoffs.
Greg Bowers will get the start
with Matt Pennington set to
close it out if needed.
"This is really exciting, the
community has been great,"
Jernigan said. "I's been a few
years since we last won 20
games and hopefully we can
win Friday night and do some-
thing that hasn't been done in
a while."


REGIONAL SPORTS



Lafayette on to the Final Four


By Corey Davis
corey.davis@gaflnews.com

MAYO-The postgame Gatorade cele-
bration over Lafayette softball coach
Derek Garland was weak to say the least.
Hopefully, a bigger one is coming soon.
Minutes after dispatching visiting
Sneads 11-1 in six innings Wednesday
night, Garland went into coaching mode.
"I congratulated them but told them
we're not done yet, let's take this pro-
gram to the next level." The Lafayette
head coach said.
Taking it to the next level means win-
ning the school's first ever game at the
Final Four. Lafayette will be making their
third trip to the state finals, first since
2007 and has gone 0-2 in previous trips.
To get to the finals, Lafayette first had
to take of Sneads, a team playing in its
second regional final in the last three
years.
Despite several upperclassman, Sneads
(21-8) practically gave the game away
committing 10 errors.
"I preach to my team just put the ball
in play and make something happen.
They (Sneads) got rattled after making a
couple of errors early on. They have a lot
of juniors and seniors, so that was a bit
surprising," Garland said. "They gave us
a lot of help and we were able to capital-
ize on them by taking extra bases and
force them to make mistakes by being
more aggressive."
Lafayette cranked out 11 hits and was
led by Stacy McClelland (3-for-4, 2
RBIs), Cartaesha Macklin (2-for-3), Lind-
sey Hamlin (2-for-4), Kali Sharpe (1-for-
4), Baileigh Edwards (1-for-4) and Eileen
Givens (1-for-4).
McClelland's 2 RBI double down the


third base line spotted the Hornets an ear-
ly 2-0 lead and all that Hamlin would
need. Macklin closed it out with a two-
out bases loaded RBI single up the mid-
dle which scored Edwards from third in
the bottom of the sixth.
"Our offense is the strength of the
team," Garland said. "One of our best hit-
ters our leadoff hitter (Linsday) O'Steen
went hitless tonight but had two sac
bunts. That's the great thing about this
team. somebody different steps up each
game."
One of those players stepping up was
seldom used Givens, who came up big
when called upon.
"That was big for us, she stepped up
tonight and helped contribute, Garland
said. "Maybe she is getting hungry know-
ing she is getting towards the end of her


high school career."
Hamlin was effective on the mound at
times but wasn't dazzling and found her-
self in a couple of jams with Pirate run-
ners getting on second and third.
"A couple of time I did think about go-
ing out there and possibly pulling her, but
she's a senior and earned the right to get
out of the jams," Garland said. "I gave
her a chance, she didn't have her best
stuff but it was good enough to get the
win."
Now Lafayette (16-10) will take a
week off before resuming its post season
run Wednesday May 13 at 5 p.m. in Cler-
mont. when it faces Lakeland Christian in
the Class 2A Final Four.
"We will spend the week fine tuning
some little things like baserunning and
other small things," Garland said.

McClelland (9) and Kelsey Land (8) meet up on the mound following a strikeout.

COMMENTARY


Mother's


Day


Sportabout
By Tom Daniels

As Mother's
Day approaches
we all reflect about
Mom. My Mom /
passed away a few
years ago, but
Mother's Day is
kind of forever. I tried to
remember the first Mother's
Day present I got for my
mother. In first grade we made
pincushions, I don't know how
we did it but we did. Second
grade was great, we made
ashtrays for mom. If mom
didn't smoke it was a candy
dish. Most mom's got ashtrays.
In your wildest dreams could
you imagine pincushions being
made at school?
When thinking of the cool
and not so cool gifts I got for
mom (one year my brother and I
went halves on a 6-foot stuffed
marlin) I started to remember
some of the cool stuff I enjoyed
doing with my mother. My
mother took me to my first
Major League baseball game at
Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey
City. The Brooklyn Dodgers
won and I got to see Duke
Snider hit a home run, it was
1957. During her den mother
years we went to Yankee
Stadium every year and usually
on a Sunday afternoon, for a
double header. We went to the
Polo Grounds to see the Mets
and in 1964 an all-star game at
Shea Stadium. My mom
enjoyed rooting for the
underdog and believe me the
Mets of the 60s were all she
could handle.
In 1963 we started going to
NY Giant football games at
Yankee Stadium, $4 a seat.
Being an underdog fan the
Giants didn't disappoint her
either, they would not make the
playoffs from 1964 to 1981.
When she moved to Florida in
1972 she was ready to be a
Gator fan, she had already
practiced for wait 'til next year.
My mom never missed me or
my brother's sporting events
from grade school through high
school. She stayed in the stands
when I came off the field with a
bloody nose, but had to be
restrained by my dad during the
Essex Catholic-Verona High
brawl. She traveled to Camp
Cayuga to watch me win a
swim meet, and sat through
more than one event when I was
attached to the bench. Yeah,
Ma, even Mickey Mantle strikes
out, tell me another one.
My mother was literally a
coal miner's daughter. My mom
was an excellent tennis player
and a great bowler, but couldn't
swim a lick. She could ride a
horse. She volunteered into
United States Navy during
World War II. While stationed
at a POW camp she threatened
to shoot a prisoner for not
obeying orders. She could shoot
a gun and crack a whip. She
was the best canasta player in
her club, 'til she taught me to
play. She beat me like a drum
when it came to casino or
Scrabble. She taught me how to
cook. She didn't have to teach
me how to win, that is easy. She
did teach me about losing and
humility and sportsmanship.
Her favorite saying: "There but
for the grace of God go I." She
taught me not to hate. Thanks,
Ma. Happy Mother's Day.

GAINESVILLE-If area athletic directors and
coaches have their way, their athletic programs
will have an easier path to the state final four.
From the Panhandle to the Suwannee Valley,
small school coaches are sick and tired of hav-
ing to deal with private schools which domi-
nate their sports, despite having no enrollment
boundaries.
For a number of years, there has been a
growing concern among public and private
school members of the FHSAA, regarding the
issues of: attendance boundaries, open enroll-
ment, foreign student eligibility requirements
and guidelines, and the potential for illegal re-
cruiting of student-athletes.
Several schools from Pensacola to Miami,
formed a Urban/Rural committee to help com-
bat this problem with the help from the Florida
High School Athletic Association (FHSAA).
The committee met with the FHSAA this
past week and made their proposals. Their mis-
sion is gather information and suggestions,
while meeting with constituents throughout the
state of Florida, about the problems and poten-
tial solutions of creating a more fair and equi-
table system of competition for interscholastic
athletics.
The committee will research what other
southeastern state associations are doing to
"level the playing field" in terms of obtaining
and developing talent for student-athletes in
the state of Florida.
The committee, which was commissioned in
the Fall of 2009, traveled throughout the state
to gather feedback from parents, coaches and
other stakeholders at public meetings about is-
sues of concern regarding participation.
Six meetings were held last fall in Lake
City, Ocala, Bradenton, Marianna, Hollywood
and Gainesville.
From this feedback, the committee devel-
oped the following recommendations:
To create a new division of participating
schools, private and public, which have been
designated as rural by the Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic Development (OTTED),
and whose student enrollments are 500 or less.
This classification shall be limited to the fol-
lowing sports: boys and girls basketball, base-
ball, football, boys and girls soccer, softball
and girls volleyball.
To ensure penalties for an offense of re-
cruiting, or any violations) of eligibility by-
laws, are very severe, including but not limited
to: program and/or school suspension from the
Association; program and/or school restrictive
probation, including exclusion from state se-
ries playoff events; and increased financial
penalties.
To investigate the use of a "clearinghouse"
system for international student eligibility,
with no more than one international student
being eligible to participate on each varsity-
level team.
To seek input from member schools re-
garding reclassification and redistricting
processes.


"We have a number of member schools that
need issues addressed in terms of equitable
competition," said FHSAA Executive Director
Roger Dearing. "We need to make sure people
know this is not a public-private issue. This is
an issue of small rural schools that do not draw
their student populations from larger urban ar-
eas or outside the state or country, and have a
difficult time competing against those that do.
There is a way for all schools to exist and suc-
ceed with the advent of this new division."
As many as 40 schools are part of this in-
cluding locally Branford, Hamilton County,
Lafayette and Melody Christian.
The basis of this committee is football dri-
ven but several schools without football are
also on the committee including Altha, Bethle-
hem, Cedar Key, Everglades Prep, Heartland
Christian, Heritage, Melody Christian, Paxton,
Ponce de Leon, Poplar Springs Graceville and
Walker Memorial.
One anonymous coach who coached in 1B
was adamant about the situation sharing his
thoughts on a high school football web site
FlaVarsity.com.
"No matter what the latest 'cover' for it, the
issue is private vs. public. With them stating
that this 'wasn't about private vs public' means
that it actually is and that they will not address
it.
"The public vs. private almost boiled over
two years ago and thankfully it was killed by
cooler heads. We do not need to have two sep-
arate worlds here in the Florida, it would be a
mess and cost too much money. It almost hap-
pened two years ago, glad it didn't.
"This new idea might be a 'salve' to this
wound, but I'm not sure that it could work.
They are throwing this bone out there and it
certainly is better than wrecking the entire sys-
tem though. But it is a weird idea, I can't even
grasp how they are going to make it work. I
don't think the the P.T.B. even can figure it
out, but thanks for trying."
The coach went on to say other coaches are
fed up as well.
"But coaches are fed-up, I know a lot of
them are. You could even name this the 'Bolles
bill' if you want. Small towns are sick and
tired of schools being classified with them and
forced to play them when they get wrecked on
Friday nights.
"It's not the fact they lose, it's usually the
case that they can't even compete with the pri-
vate schools that can bring in any superstar
they want from anytown they want and pay
their tuition to play there.
"It's not the losing, it's the getting totatally
embarrassed that is the issue. And to these
towns, there are no solutions and they feel the
private schools are cheating and there is not
way to stop them.
"It's not cheating, it's not recruiting, it's just
the system that's in place. These private
schools are not cheating anybody, if they were
they would have been turned in long ago. They
are doing exactly, by the rules, what they are
allowed to do-pay the tuition of kids who can't
effort it, via a third party. They just happen to
have lots of money.

"And small towns are sick of it, coaches are
sick of it and if something isn't done they will
force a split from public vs. private.
"That, in my opinion, will force too many
wonderful little private Christian schools out
of the business of football.
"These little schools don't recruit, nor pay
money for athletes to go there, they actually
play football with the kids who go to their lit-
tle schools. That's why they're not any good.
These are not the schools that this new
idea/law/compromise/solution are aimed at.
"This law is aimed at schools such as Bolles
with kids from around the world, and Trinity
Catholic in Ocala, who have kids transferring
from the Tampa Bay area to play there.
"Although they don't play, I'll use the exam-
ple of Branford, Bradford or Bell, etc, they
cannot compete with that. I know some of
these coaches, they are not winners, they just
happen to only have the kids in their area for
their teams."
Local coaches shared their thoughts about
the matter.
Hamilton County baseball coach Ryan
Mitchell, which is in a district with North
Florida Christian and Maclay stated, "I think
that this new division gives smaller public rur-
al schools a chance to be competitive at every
sport."
Mitchell went on to say, "The way it stands
now, any small school in our area will have to
beat at least one private school in the playoffs
in order to win a state championship. Most of
these schools have great programs and advan-
tages that are not afforded to us at rural public
schools and makes it really hard to compete at
that level.
"I think that this new classification gives a
better chance to compete in the playoffs than
the move to classes 2B and lB that have been
done in the past seven or eight years.
"I don't think the issue lies with public
schools vs. private schools. I think that the is-
sue is trying to create a fair playing ground for
schools, like most of the ones in our area, that
have a limited number of resources. I think
that this a good move and I look forward to
seeing what decisions are made in the next few
months.
"If you look at the Class 1A and Class 2A
baseball and softball brackets, there are few
public schools left. The winner of the
Lafayette/Sneads softball game will be the
only public school in the Final Four in either
1A or 2A. You can even see that trend in a 3A
a little. Most public baseball schools that
played got eliminated yesterday. Just more fuel
for the fire. "
Melody Christian boys basketball coach
Mike Raines knows exactly what Mitchell and
the rest of the smaller schools are going
through.
As the area's only private school, Melody
only inherits kids from the Live Oak and
Jasper communities. Although Raines's team
has been highly successful the last three years,
they haven't won their district or advanced

Suwannee l-year olds take home title


Special

Suwannee 11-year old travel baseball
team won the Tournament of Champions
tournament this past weekend in Cordele,
Ga. to bring there record to 19-2 on the
season.

past the first round of the
state playoffs, because of
other private schools who
recruit kids from all over
the country and other
countries.
Arlington Country Day
brings in kids from North
Carolina, Maryland, Puerto
Rico and other states as
well and houses them in
off campus apartments.
"Arlington Country Day
(ACD)is not on our level,
we've been very good the
last three years winning 73
games, but for my kids it's
hard to compete with them
in the same district.
"ACD has been to six
straight Final Fours and
had won five state champi-
onships until this season, I
can't beat them. One of
my players plays travel
ball with some of their
kids and they told them
about how they all live in a
apartment together. It
doesn't take a genius to
figure what's going on
over there, although you
can't accuse someone
without evidence."
Miller was confident if
this new league was in


Suwannee won the first game rather
easily winning 10-0 in four innings. Jack-
son Greene pitched three shutout innings
with Kyler Gray closing out the game on
the mound with a quick fourth inning.
Top hitters were Gray 1-for-2, Evan
Johnson 1-for-2 and Cole Frier 1-for-2.


place his team would have
more hardware for sure.
"I think we would have
definitely won state with-
out those schools this sea-
son. We beat Madison
County and Taylor County
both by 30 points this past
season."
Branford football coach
Bill Wiles chimed in with
his thoughts as well.
"I think it is needed. It
will align common schools
in a common
classification. It does
not have anything to do
with 'private' schools.
Their will be private
schools in the rural classi-
fication. This is about ur-
ban areas like Tallahasse,
Jacksonville, Orlando and
rural areas like Branford,
Trenton, Bell, and Bron-
son.
"Urban schools draw
from 100's of thousands
by population while rural
schools only draw from
populations of maybe 2-3
thousand people.
"It is a no brainer to me.
As long as they cap enroll-
ment at approximately 500 I
do not see a problem. If
the enrollment is allowed
to go much over 500, it


will not do what is is in-
tended to do." Branford
football coach Bill Wiles.
We will see what hap-
pens as the FHSAA is ex-
pected to announce a deci-
sion in June.

The second game saw Suwannee lose
its first game to an 11 year old team this
year, losing 2-1 to the Leesburg Panthers.
Zane Stephens started on the mound and
pitched well for two innings, before giv-
ing way to Doug Smith, who pitched the
final three innings. Both pitchers only
gave up one run apiece. Leading
Suwanne was Carter Wiggins, who went
1-for-2.
On elimination Sunday, Suwannee was
matched up against Georgia Force in the
opening game. Stone Stephenson started
the game off with a leadoff home run and
two batters later, Zane Stephens hit one
of his two home runs on the game.
Doug Smith followed them in the third
inning hitting another home run. Jackson
Greene pitched all five innings for the 9-
5 win. Top hitters were Stephens 2-for-3,
Greene 3-for-3, Smith 2-for-3 and Sam
McMillan 2-for-3.
In the championship game, Suwannee


faced off against the Leesburg Panthers
again.
With the Suwannee team looking for
revenge Stone Stephenson lead the game
off with his second leadoff homerun in as
many games. With the tempo set Zane
Stephens pitched five strong innings only
giving up one run and striking out six.
With the game still close at 4-1, Jack-
son Greene hit a two-run home run to put
the game away for good. Doug Smith
closed out the last inning to preserve an
11-4 victory for Suwannee.
Top hitters were Micheal Gregory 3-
for-3, Kris Allen 2-for-3 and Greene 1-
for-2.
Coach Phillip Hurst had this to say
about the weekend. I thought that we
pitched really well like we have all sea-
son long and that has given us a chance
to win a bunch of ball games this year.
We have a great group of kids that really
work hard and want to win."

Sefistess


he tenth work of the flesh
mentioned by Paul in his epistle to
the Galatians is selfishness, a
SELFIorrpTyi translation of the Greek word "eritheia."
n ss The word "eritheia" refers to a self-
centered attitude, exemplified by
vS someone who seeks political office for
.! ,S personal gain, or who does good works
Si for the purpose of recognition or
is ambition. This particular vice is contrary
to a central theme in the Gospels, namely,
Jesus' warning that "If any man would
come after me, let him deny himself and
take up his cross and follow me. For
Whoever would save his life will lose it,
S1^and whoever loses his life for my sake will
I' find it." (Matthew 16:24-25) Who of us
can honestly say that we have denied
ourselves and are truly willing to lose our lives for someone else? True
selflessness is so rare that when we see a genuine case of someone
putting other people's interests ahead of their own, especially when it
has significant costs to that individual, we consider it heroic. The
question, however, is whether we can truly make these heroic
sacrifices in a selfless way, or whether we are doing it with the aim of
some otherworldly reward. Many of us make these sacrifices with the
secret hope that we will be rewarded in heaven, and this is simply
another version of selfishness. Indeed, an emphasis on one's "personal
salvation" is a form of eritheia. We should always consider whether our
acts of goodness are done for selfishness or from a more pure motive.

Do nothing from sefisfiness or conceit, but in fumnilty count
others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not onfy to
his own interests but also to the interests of others.

God Says




Bible authority


By Eric

All
Scripture -
references
are from '.
the Ameri-
can Stan-
dard Version, unless other-
wise noted.
As a child (or maybe
even as an adult), did you
ever play a game in which
nobody knew what rules
and regulations were being
used? For instance, the
game of Hide and Go Seek
has many variations. Sup-
pose you thought that the
big tree in the middle of
your yard was home base,
but another child thought
that it was the front porch,
another the car, etc. Add to
that the fact that you think
you are frozen for ten sec-
onds after being tagged,
while another child be-
lieves that you must be un-
frozen by one of your bud-
dies. If nobody knows what
rules to follow, chaos en-
sues.
I have also been in situa-
tions where my young son
would want to play a game
with me, and I would agree
to do so. We would sit
down and make sure the
rules were clear and begin
to play. Then my son would
start to lose the game, so he
changed the rules. When I
tell him that this is not what
we agreed to, he would try
to tell me that he decided to
change them! Again, chaos
ensues.
People of the Bible had
the same problem thou-
sands of years ago. In
Judges 17:6 and again in
21:25, we read, "In those


days there was no king in
Israel: every man did that
which was right in his own
eyes." The people thought
that there was no set au-
thority, no rules by which
to live. As a result, chaos
reigned and God was left
out of the picture.
Today, man has the same
problem. In a religious
sense, we see various
groups claim that this book
or that book is their author-
ity. Others claim that it is
some national or interna-
tional convention that is
their authority. Still others
say that their feelings are
their authority. As a result,
there is chaos in the reli-
gious world today. For us
to be united in religion, we
must first agree on a stan-
dard of authority. As I
mentioned in last week's
article, that authority is
found by following the
words of Jesus, since that is
what will judge us at the
end of time (John 12:48).
The words of Jesus are
found within the pages of
the New Testament, not
some other book, man,
group of men (or women),
or our feelings.
God's Word tells us in
Matthew 28:18, "And Jesus
came to them and spake
unto them, saying, All au-
thority hath been given
unto Me in heaven and on
earth." If ALL authority
was given to Jesus, that
leaves no room for others
to make or have authority
that is not already autho-
rized by Jesus in Scripture.
And instead of changing
His mind or adding to what
He has already told us,
Jude says by the Inspired

Word in Jude 3, "Beloved,
while I was giving all dili-
gence to write unto you of
our common salvation, I
was constrained to write
unto you exhorting you to
contend earnestly for the
faith which was once for all
delivered unto the saints."
The phrase "once for all,"
means that it has been giv-
en, it is finished. There
will be no surprises on
Judgment Day; we have all
we need. In II Peter 1:2-3,
He tell us, "Grace to you
and peace be multiplied in
the knowledge of God and
of Jesus our Lord; seeing
that His divine power hath
granted unto us all things
that pertain unto life and
godliness, through the
knowledge of Him that
called us by His own glory
and virtue." We already
have all we need in God's
Word; there is nothing else
required but our obedience
to it.
Once children or adults
decide to follow the same
rules for a game, they can
enjoy themselves and not
allow chaos to reign. The
same is true if we follow
God's Word, and His alone.
I urge you to throw away
manmade books, creeds, or
feelings and focus exclu-
sively on obeying the Word
of God for all things reli-
gious. Join me next time as
we continue to look at what
God says.

you are trying to make may
have to do with serious
health issues; which doctor
to go to, whether to-or-not-

goes on in churches or in-

The one and only



Wonder Woman


Did you have a favorite su- .
perhero when you were grow-
ing up? There are so many
now, it might be hard to decide,
but when I was a little girl,
there was really only one
choice: Wonder Woman! She
had her own TV show, the
coolest outfit, and an invisible
jet.. .but these were just added
benefits. What really caught my Hea
attention were her remarkable Maq
silver bracelets that doubled as Mat
defensive weapons against a vil- By An;
lain's bullet. (I suppose a bullet-
proof vest didn't quite work
with her outfit.) To me, it just didn't get
any better than life-saving protection
that also happened to be a fashion ac-
cessory ... and let's just say my cousin
and I went through numerous rolls of
aluminum foil in order to fight crime in
Wonder Woman style!
As children, we loved the idea of be-
ing invincible. The longer we live,
however, it becomes more and more ob-
vious that our greatest hurts aren't
caused by bullets or villains with super
powers. Instead, they are usually the re-
sult of relationships that have taken a
turn for the worse ... and how we re-
spond to them. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-4,
the Bible records the Apostle Paul's re-
minder to us that we have a critical de-
cision to make:
"For though we live in the world, we
do not wage war as the world does.
The weapons we fight with are not the
weapons of the world. On the contrary,
they have divine power to demolish
strongholds."
This passage acknowledges that be-
cause we live in this world, even as be-
lievers in Christ, we still have the op-
portunity to fight like the world does,
with the same weapons. Think about
what those weapons are in connection
to relationship conflicts: unforgiveness,
retaliation, slander, sarcasm, angry out-
bursts, silent treatments, contempt ...
just to name a few. The problem with
using these weapons is twofold: first,
the more we use them, the better we get
at using them, and two, the better we


tians).
The other day I heard a
man say, "I've never been
to church and I know I am
a good man." Later I told
him I agreed with the state-
ment because going to
church doesn't make a man
a good man (it is sad today
what the testimonies of
some Christians are doing
to the Church). Hopefully
if a man is going to church
and following the teachings
of the Bible he is becoming
a better person, not critical
and angry, but what going
to church does is exposes
him to the Gospel and
brings him under the teach-
ing of the Word of God.
You don't have to go to
Church to be a good per-
son. I have no doubt many
people that don't go to
church are better than those


irt

tters
gie Land


get at using them, the more like-
ly we are to end up ... alone.
Correct me if I have this all
wrong, but it is not the goal in
any given relationship to end up
alone ... right? In fact, accord-
ing to Genesis 2:18, being alone
is the only thing in all six days
of creation that God said was
NOT good!
According to the rest of this
passage, we have other
weapons to choose from ...
weapons with divine power.
Divine power implies that


these weapons were not found-
ed upon human reasoning, but by the
wisdom of God, which gives them the
authority to demolish strongholds.
What better to battle unforgiveness than
to forgive even when nothing in you
feels like it? Could anything take the
sting out of sarcasm like an .:p, ,l1 ,- -, ...
or render the silent treatment useless by
saying "I love you and I want to make
this right" ... and what remedies slander
better than humbling yourself and find-
ing something positive to say about
someone who has dealt you a low
blow?
Yes ... these weapons have the divine
power to demolish destructive patterns
of behavior but we have to intentionally
be willing to wield them. Chances are
good these weapons can get rusty from
time to time, but with regular use they
bring relief and healing to hurting rela-
tionships...and that is way more impres-
sive than an invisible jet! Still, having a
pair of those bracelets would have been
really cool:)

who go to church. Most
people who go to church go
because they know they
need to be there because
they are sinners and need
the help that only God can
give them.
Somehow many Chris-
tians as they grow and be-
come stronger in their spiri-
tual lives have a tendency
to look down their noses at
those who haven't devel-
oped as fast. They think
they are more spiritual be-
cause they wear dresses all
the time, or because they
don't cut their hair, or be-
cause they observe or don't
observe certain holidays or
particular days of the week
- and criticize each other
for doing so (I Corinthians
8:6-13). Some Christians
fight over whose preacher
is superior; "my preacher


is better than your preacher,
my preacher is better than
yours..." (I Corinthians 3:1-
8). Notice that Paul, the
writer of Corinthians, re-
ferred to them as "carnal"
and said he could not speak
unto them as "spiritual."
Jesus gave the final word
on judging in Matthew
chapter seven: "Judge not,
that ye be not judged ...
Thou hypocrite, first cast
out the beam out of thine
own eye; and then shalt
thou see clearly to cast out
the mote out of thy broth-
er's eye," (Matthew 7:1-6).
Before looking at the other
guy judge yourself -
make sure you are right
with God and confess your
own sins (I John 1:9) prob-
ably not the least of which
is having a critical spirit to-
ward or judging others.

Grace Evangelical Lutheran


Church to mark 50th anniversary A


Submitted
Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, a
member of the Church of the Lutheran
Confession, will celebrate the 50th an-
niversary of the church body on Sunday,
May 16. Service time is 10:30 am. The
church is located two miles east of the
Live Oak fire station on County Road
136.
The Church of the Lutheran Confes-
sion (CLC) was organized in Watertown,
South Dakota in 1960 by the pastors and
members who for reasons of conscience
felt compelled to leave member synods
of the old Synodical Conference. Dis-
agreement in doctrine and practice had
arisen in the Synodical Conference,
which consisted of the Lutheran Church-
Missouri Synod (LCMS), the Wisconsin
Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS)
and the Evangelical Lutheran Synod
(ELS). The underlying disagreement re-
volved around the understanding and in-
terpretation of Scripture with regard to
the doctrine of fellowship, which is the
teaching that the exercise of church fel-
lowship is legitimately practiced only be-
tween those who are agreed in the doc-
trines of Scripture. Of the three bodies,
the LC-MS promoted a looser fellowship
practice. While the WELS and ELS ob-
jected and declared their fellowship with
the LC-MS was threatened, the LC-MS
continued on its path. As the breach
widened between the LC-MS and the
WELS and ELS, inaction paralyzed the
WELS and ELS. When they continued in
fellowship with the LC-MS, some pas-
tors and members of the WELS and ELS
could not in good conscience remain in
their fellowship because of the changing
fellowship principles now evident in the


WELS and ELS. Consequently, they sev-
ered their fellowship, and in 1960 joined
in establishing the Church of the Luther-
an Confession.
The CLC aims to be what its name im-
plies, which is a church that continues to
uphold the teaching of Scripture and
Christian values drawn from Scripture.
With the historic Lutheran Confessions,
the Church of the Lutheran Confession
believes and declares that the only foun-
dation for saving faith is the Scriptures
inspired by the Spirit of God, and trans-
mitted to us in the Bible. Since the Bible
teaches that eternal salvation is only by
grace through faith in Jesus Christ, no
part of Scripture can be denied, and no
teaching contrary to Scripture can be tol-
erated in the Church. To the CLC, if it is
not Scripture, it is not Lutheran.
The Lord God has commissioned the
church to preach the Gospel, the message
of salvation through the atonement of the
Lord Jesus Christ. Significantly He
added, "teaching them to observe all
things, whatsoever I have commanded
you." It is the earnest desire of the
members of the Church of the Lutheran
Confession to remain faithful to Scrip-
ture in teaching and practice. It is the
single purpose of the Church of the
Lutheran Confession to be a church that
proclaims the message of salvation in Je-
sus Christ. This Gospel is the only way
people can know the true God and the
way to eternal life. Any false teaching
violates the Gospel message.
The members of Grace Lutheran
Church invite all to attend the service in
which we will celebrate the 50th an-
niversary of the Church of the Lutheran
Confession.
