Rekindling



a dream

Faith Lutheran reopening.

learning center for children


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Director Kathleen Pontius organizes her classroom at the new Faith Child Development Center, a ministry of Faith
Lutheran Church in Sebring.


By ROMONA
WASHINGTON
editor@newssun.com
SEBRING - In 2004, parents who
were sending their children to Faith
Lutheran School had to scramble to
find a new school for their children
when the academy, which had been
opened for nearly 30 years, closed
due to financial difficulties.
This fall, th at school will reopen at
its initial stage.
Faith Lutheran Church was granted
a charter that was signed by 19 char-
ter members in 1952. It was a dream
of the church members, who in their
childhood were privileged to have a
parochial Lutheran education, to
open a school for children in the


Sebring community.
In 1975, the school's early concep-
tion began with l "c-school and day
care ministry. Then in 1985; a 10-
year plan envisioning programs,
staffing, facilities and accreditation at
both the district and national level
was-placed in motion. The school
eventually consisted of programs for
2-year-olds through eighth-grade stu-
dents.
The school grew to the point that
the church had to expand its facilities
by adding two school buildings next
to the church. When the new church
was built in 1989, the original church
was remodeled for classrooms and
the lower level of the original church
building was used for music, lunch,


Former APMS principal

cleared of charges by

education commission


I John Russ was
accused of having
porn on his school
computer in 2005
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Former
Avon Park High School
Principal John R. Russ was'
cleared in April of all
charges against his teaching
certificate.
According to a press
release from Russ' attorney
Jim McCollum, Florida's
Commissioner of Education,
Eric J. Smith has dismissed
the case against Russ, finding
no cause to continue.
Russ has always main-
tained his innocence.
The dismissal of the case
by the education commis-
sioner was made without
prejudice, meaning it could


be refiled on the same or sim-
ilar allegations at a later date,
Smith noted in his Notice of
Voluntary Dismissal.
Although no charges were
officially filed, according a
2005 Highlands County
Sheriff's report, school board
administrators and sheriff's
investigators concluded that
adult pornographic sites and
Web sites containing child
erotica were accessed on
Russ' computer.
The report states that on
Sept. 1, 2005, Sheriff Susan
Benton received a call from
Jim Bible, deputy superin-
tendent of The School Board
of Highlands County, stating
he had received information
that his management infor-
mation systems department
found improper data on an
employee's computer.
Bible stated in the report

baking, programs and physical educa-
tion as needed.
Now, those grassroot efforts of
early church members are taking hold
again.
"After much prayer and effort,
Faith Lutheran Church is reopening
Faith Child Development Center, a
preschool and day care serving 3-
and 4-year-olds," said Kathy
Pontious, director of the new center.
The school had already closed in
July 2005 when Pastor Gary Kindle
came to the church. He said though
the school had been closed for a year
there was still distention within the
church about the closing.

Andrews

court case

continued
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Three notable
cases were scheduled for pretri-
al conferences Thursday, but no
major actions were taken.
According to Chip Thullbery,
spokesman for the State
Attorney's Office in Bartow, the
state has been in talks with for-
mer Sebring Chamber of
Commerce president Dan
Andrews and his attorney, but
no plea agreement has been
reached.
"I believe we have had plea
discussions with the defense.
I'm certainly not going to dis-
cuss what those are but I'll say
that," Thullber
said. "No agree-
ment has been
reached at this
time."
There has
been a recent
change in the Andrews
State Attorney's
Office, with Darla Dooley tak-
ing the case over from Robert
Bunn when Bunn left for private
practice in Gainesville. Both
prosecutors have similar experi-
ence with the Bartow office,
about three years.
In May, Bunn told the court
he needed more time before
trial because recent information
had been uncovered by his
office and they needed more
time to prepare.
Thursday's pretrial confer-
ence was no different, with
another continuance granted.
The next time Andrews will be
in court will be Aug. 20.

In-patient

hospice area

at HRMC to

debut today

Joint effort with
Hope Hospice
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County's first hospice in-
patient care program, a joint
effort of Hope Hospice and
Highlands Regional Medical
Center, will host an open house
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.
"Hope at Highlands
Regional" will be located on
the second floor of the Sebring
hospital in an area specially
designed for hospice care.
It will include seven patient
care suites and a family room
and will be attended by hospice
staff 24 hours a day.
While Hope currently pro-
vides hospice care to many
Highlands County residents in
their own homes, the in-patient
program will enable Hope to
better meet special needs while
offering the community much
greater access to services.
All of the hospital's ameni-
ties will be available to hospice
patients' families, including
food services, convenient park-
ing and aiter-hours security.
"Hope Hospice has served
the residents of southwest
Florida for 30 years and we
were privileged to begin pro-
viding service in Highlands
County in 2006. We immedi-
ately saw the need for an in-
patient hospice program here,"
said Hope President and CEO
Samira K. Beckwith.
"Among the many fine hos-
pitals in the area, we were for-
tunate that Highlands-Regional
was able to make this accom-
modation, which uses our com-
bined resources very efficient-
ly and at no cost to the commu-
nity. We are grateful to Robert
Mahaffey, the CEO and
Administrator, for collaborat-
ing with us in this major step
forward in local health care."
"We are delighted- to wel-
come Hope Hospice to
Highlands Regional,"
Mahaffey said.
"This partnership will great-
ly benefit the community, as
Highlands Regional Medical
Center and Hope Hospice are
both dedicated to providing
quality, compassionate care,
focused on exceptional cus-
tomer service. This takes
health care to a new level in
Highlands County and the sur-
rounding area."

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Nancy Weber, a
member of the picnic committee of
the Historical Society of Avon Park,
was all smiles as she talked about the
third annual Avon Park Pioneer
Homecoming Picnic, set for noon,
Aug. 22, at the Avon Park
Community Center.
"It's going to be fun, with plenty
of time to visit and plenty to eat,"'
she said.
And sandwiched in between all


that visiting and eating will be the
introduction of the Avon Park
Pioneer Man and Woman of the Year.
The two will join Bill Hood and Vera
Kirkland, named in 2007, and Duane
Kopta and Nancy Nunnallee, the
2008 Pioneers of the Year.
This will again be a covered dish
affair, with the society providing
iced tea, coffee and tableware,
according to picnic committee chair-
peison Jean Jordan. And volunteers
will be on hand to help carry the,


dishes from the parking lot into the
community center.
"'We are taking table reservations
for groups of eight," Jordan said.
"Any high school class or groups of
friends or families can reserve one or
more tables for $20 a table." To
reserve tables, send a check, made
out to the Historical Society of Avon
Park, to Jordan at 600 N. Lake

christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Andrea Hardy-Stanford,
who has done choreography and backstage
work for Highlands Little Theatre, is open-
ing Stage 13 Performing Arts, a performing
arts studio in the Village Fountain Plaza's
,Suite 253 Monday.

were many fine dancing schools in
Highlands County, no one offered the full
experience of stage arts.
In addition to all types of dancing -
from ballet to hip hop - her studio also
will provide lessons in acrobatics, acting
and voice.
She hopes in the future to be able to offer


simmer camps in back stage skills like
lighting and sound.
In the meantime, Nellie Ford, whose
soprano has been heard on stage and in
churches throughout the county, will be
teaching voice and Laura Wade will be
teaching acting.
Kristen Taylor, who has appeared in,
directed and helped direct countless HLT
productions, will be conducting acting
workshops during the first two months.
Registration begins Monday. The studio's
office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Monday-Friday.

Citizens need new
leaders at county,
state levels
Editor:
Previously I had opined
that the voters needed a
new governor and state leg-
islation. Subsequent events
compel me to expand that
concept. The 'voters of
Highlands County need new
leadership.
It is bad enough that the
state governor and legisla-
ture serve the business enti-
ty above the citizens of this
state. The Highlands
County commission has
done the same. Not only did
it serve the business entity
by suspending the impact
fee; it also allowed for
loose compliance of the
state DCA requirements for
infrastructure. The county
already has a backlog of
$500 million in county/state
roads, and all tax payers
must pay the price, not
those who created the
demand for infrastructure.
It appears that the com-
mission dismisses the fact
that developers, contractors,
real estate and bankers initi-
ated the sub-prime loan dis-
aster that has this nation
gripped in a crippling reces-
sion. It dismisses the fact
that the state legislature
bailed out those special
interests to "boost" the
economy. In the meantime,
working people and fami-
lies became the victims of
this abysmal scenario.
Not.only did the legisla-
ture "save" those interests,
it passed down more
unfunded mandates to the
counties in order to reduce
its own budget. It also
increased taxes for working
people and called.them
"fees," which increase
transportation costs from 40
percent to 300 percent.
Our ow.n local county
commission not only
reduced its revenues by sus-
pending impact fees, it is
considering raising taxes to
make up that shortfall. It
provides salary increases
for top county officials, but
lays off lower employees
and reduces their benefits.
Bankruptcies have dou-
bled in the last year; more
people are losing their
homes and others are leav-
ing the state to escape trav-
esty. Regular folks are los-
ing'ground from all direc-
tions; yet, prices for every-
thing keep rising. Progress
Energy already asked for a
37 percent increase in rates


to pay for a nuclear plant
and want the consumers to
pay for it. Now they want
another increase to raise its
profit 12.5 percent. As
noted, the working people
are earning less; at least 60
percent just get the wages
.earned - no benefits. They
are back to minimum wage.
Still Progress Energy wants
more.
The citizens of this coun-
ty and state need new com-
missioners, governor and
legislature. Corporate
America owns them.
Working people are way
down on the totem pole;
they desperately need a
change.

APPD doing fine job
of keeping city safe
Editor:,
I want to publicly thank
the Avon Park Police
Department. In my neigh-
borhood (apartment com-
plex) many of the seasonal
workers are moving north
(until the fall). We had a
problem with people com-
ing through and siphoning
gas, breaking and entering,


stealing bikes, etc.
I called Commander.
Rowan's voice mail and
requested extra patrol. They
(APPD) were courteous and
called me back to let me
know that they would
increase the patrol.
Since then, no one is
missing any bikes, gas is
still in vehicles! etc.
Thank you Avon Park
police for acting in such a
quick, courteous, profes-
sional way.
A few bad apples does
not spoil the bunch.
I appreciate you all keep-
ing our neighborhood and
streets safe.

The wall's message
is stark, simple
Editor:
With Memorial Day and
July 4th just past, it is once
again appropriate to consid-
er America's wars and our
war dead.
Custom called for war
memorials as part of our
observance, a show of rev-
erence. Most southern town
squares still display a statue
of a confederate soldier fac-


ing north. Other memorials
reflect on a particular cam-
paign and the sacrifice and
hardships.
One memorial stands out
distinctly and unambiguous-
ly in its message. The
Vietnam Wall. The Wall
does not celebrate any par-
ticular battle or campaign.
It's message is stark and
simple. It is the collective
yet personalized memorial
to each of 58,000 men who
died in the Vietnam War.
Just that. You can read their
names inscribed, the name
of every man whose life
was lost as a result of that
war. It is devoid of heroic
symbol since none is need-
ed.
There is no editorializing,
no history of their battles,
no eulogy, and no accolade
to their accomplishment.
Just a solemn, respectful,
very long list of names of
those who died. Yet in its
stark simplicity it is more
eloquent than a cathedral,
more meaningful than a dis-
course on the evils of war.
It is a catalogue of war's
ultimate result. The names
of the dead.

Solutions for our future:

Energy efficiency


Energy efficiency - the
buzzword of the late 1970s
and early '80s - has become
a hot topic once again. The
federal stimulus bill includes
funding for making energy
efficiency improvements to.
your home, and there are
numerous national groups
dedicated to promoting the
concept. But you might not
know that the energy effi-
ciency revolution started
with a refrigerator.
In the mid-1970s the first
of a series of national refrig-
erator standards was created.
Back then, the amount of
energy each fridge used var-
ied widely depending on the
engineer who designed it
and the amount of insulation
built in. By setting and later
boosting efficiency stan-
dards for manufacturers to
follow, the U.S. Department
of Energy notes the amount
of energy a standard fridge
consumes today has been cut
by 75 percent from 1975 -
even though the size of the
average fridge has grown
from 18 cubic feet to 22
cubic feet.
As a result, the amount of
energy we're saving by
using current efficient com-
mercial and residential
refrigerator models (versus
those from the 1970s) equals
more than all of renewable .
energy produced in America
today, excluding hydropow-
er. You see, energy efficien-
cy isn't about wearing
sweaters or cutting back on
your daily activities-it's all
about being smart with the
power, you use. And the
smarter we are about our
power use right now, the
less power we'll need inthe
future.
The U.S. Energy
Information Administration
stresses that because of effi-
ciency measures, energy
productivity - the impact we
get from every kilowatt-hour
used - is rising by 0.9 per-
cent a year. By turning to
energy efficiency to pull
more productivity out of the
electricity we require, the
United States can reduce its
demand growth from 2.1
percent each year.to 0.5 per-
cent, according to a 2009
McKinsey Global Institute
study.
Electric cooperatives like
Peace River Electric
Cooperative (PRECO) are
doing our part to help you
get the most out of each
kilowatt-hour you consume.


Guest
Column

Across the nation, 92 percent
of electric cooperatives offer
energy efficiency pirgrams
for members. It's part of our
commitment to providing
you with reliable',and afford-
able power in an environ-
mentally responsible f'afilon.
As you've probablbh-heard,
government action qf; 4ress
climate change will increase
electric bills; the size of this
impact on your pocketbook
has yet to be decided. When
it comes to meeting our '
nation's energy challenged
electric co-ops are offering
elected officials our experi-
ence on how to make afford-
able choices on behalf of
consumers. But we need
your help.
Through the "Our Energy,
Our Future" grassroots '
awareness campaign, hun-
dreds of thousands bf'elec-
tric cooperative members '
(and consumers of other
municipal 'and iinve or
owned utilities) have sent
more than 1.7 million mes-
sages to Congress, asking
lawmakers to focus on the.
interconnected issues of
making sure we have enough
generation to satisfy growing
demand, developing new
low-emissions technologies,
and keeping electric bills
affordable when shaping
energy and climate change
policy.
Get invplvedin this cpa-
paign by asking your U.S.
representative and "senatori
on Capitol Hill this impor-
tant new question: Are you'
willing to work with electric
cooperatives to ensure our.
nation has reliable power at
a price consumers can
afford?

News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Books will be an important part of the curriculum at the new Faith Child Development
Center in Sebring.

Faith Lutheran school to re-open


Continued from page 1A
"But we feel like God has put the right
person in place by sending Kathy to us. Her
daughter started coming to worship services
and Bible study and Kathy followed along.
She liked what she was hearing and seeing.
As we talked and found out what her back-
ground was, we felt like this was the person
God sent to us to open the center back up,"
Kindle said.
Members of the church have spent the last
six months creating the environment for the
center. Many members have donated their
time and talents toward the project, and a
number of financial donations have been
made to fill the center with learning equip-
ment for the children.
Pontious said the center will open Aug. 24
and will provide a faith-based environment
for children to learn and grow. In addition to
day care services from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten services will be
offered through the Early Learning


Coalition. Those classes will run from 8:30-
11:30 a.m. Monday-Friday, and are fully
subsidized by the state of Florida through
the Early Learning Coalition.
The new director of the center is ready for
the job with a lot of experience.
Pontius, who speaks with much excite-
ment about the center, has more than two
decades of experience in teaching and
administration in public schools in
Michigan. She has been a school principal,
director of a program for the gifted, a read-
ing specialist and a liaison for children with
disabilities. She has also served as a princi-
pal for Head Start and the State Four
Program in Michigan.
"We are so excited about the center open-
ing," she said.
Enrollment of children for the center has
begun. Anyone interested in more informa-
tion can call the church office at 385-7848
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Will classes expand? "That will be God's
call," Kindle said.


Case against former principal dropped


Continued from page 1A
that, "of course these
images would be inappropri-
ate for an employee to view
in a school setting and some
of the pictures appeared to be
that of young females under
the age of eighteen."
Although sheriff's investi-
gators did find evidence of
adult sites and questionable
images of children had been
accessed, the case was closed
because authorities did not
have probable cause to
charge Russ.
In a press release in
October 2005, the sheriff's
office stated that "inappro-
priate" images were found,
but no charges were filed,
and the state attorney's office
declined to prosecute.
Russ was suspended with
pay by the school board in
September 2005, and
resigned from Avon Park
Middle School in October
that same year.
Although local officials
found no cause to file
charges, the state's
Commissioner of Education
filed an administrative com-
plaint against Russ, alleging
inappropriate conduct, and
sought to permanently













The nws

revoke Russ' Florida educa-
tion certificate and bar him
from reapplying.
On May 23, 2008, attorney
Jim McCollum requested that
the Commissioner of
Education produce any evi-
dence or documentation it


had to support its charges
against Russ.
Additionally, McCollum
has filed a motion for the
Department of Education to
reimburse Russ for his attor-
ney's fees, under the Florida
Equal Access to Justice Act.

a man instead of writing
him a ticket.
Since then he has been
arrested numerous times
and charged with every-
thing from perjury for
allegedly making false
statements during an inter-
view with APPp Internal
Affairs to falsifying an offi-
cial document, all related to
his initial arrest.
Perez was initially
released on $5,000 bond
but that bond was revoked
in May during a pretrial
hearing.
Because his initial arrest
was made nearly six
months ago, Perez waived
his right to a speedy trial (a
trial within 175 days of
arrest) during his pretrial
hearing Thursday morning.
Judge Jeff McKibben
made it clear to both the
defense and prosecution
that he wanted the case to
continue progressing.
"I don't want any discov-
ery to be delayed," he told
the attorneys.
Perez, who will remain
in jail until his trial, has his
next pretrial conference set
for Sept. 25.

Suspect in 2008
LP murder makes
first appearance
Juan Carlos Morales, 30,
was in the Highlands


County Jail on unrelated
charges of battery on a law
enforcement officer when
he was indicted on April 7
for the murder of Michael
Arnold.
Arnold was found lying
in front of his Deerwalk
Avenue home in Lake
Placid on Nov. 3 of last
year with a fatal gunshot
wound to the head. A press
release in April from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office stated Morales was
developed as a suspect in
the murder almost immedi-
ately.
Morales was also in
court Thursday for a pretri-
al hearing, where he com-
municated with a public
defender through a transla-
tor. During the hearing he
was assigned a public
defender to defend him in
the murder charge.
He faces charges in two
separate cases as well, one
of which includes four
felony counts of aggravated
assault and one count of
cruelty to animals, and in
the other battery on a law
enforcement officer, which
he was initially arrested for
in November.
The two other cases will
be handled by attorney
William Fletcher.
Morales has his next pre-
trial hearings, for all three
cases, scheduled for Aug.
19.

Let the games begin

Sebring Ozone All-Stars look toward state title


News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE.
Above: Sebring's 'three horsemen.' Jonathan Struck, Jordan Baker and Alex Forde will be
the go-to guys on the mound for the Dixie Ozone All-Stars during their run at the state
tournament which begins Saturday in Marianna. Right: The Sebring bats will need to be on
as well, as Andrew Starkey keeps his batting eye sharp by hitting off a tee at practice
Wednesday.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - Close but no
cigar seems to have been the
mantra for this group of
Dixie ball players.
"In the three years I've
been doing this, we've been
runner up in the state tourna-
ment," Ozone head coach
Israel Gomez said at the team
practice Wednesday. "I've
been with my. son, Alex, from
pitching machine through the
AAA (9- and 10-year old)
and now here."
Talent isn't at issue, as to
simply make it to the state
tournament, much less reach
the title game, shows the
ability.
Experience isn't a weak-
ness either, with many of the
young lads playing on travel
ball teams, in addition to
their Dixie League schedule,
and some having taken a trip
to Cooperstown, N.Y. last
year for a national tourna-
ment.
"We came in 17th out of 98
teams," pitcher/outfielder
Jordan Baker said.


"We lost our first two
games," pitcher/shortstop
Alex Forde said. "But then
won the rest of them."
So the big-game, far-away-
from-home jitters may have
crept in during the early
stages, but getting back to


playing the game soon came
back.
"There were so many good
teams up there," Baker said.
"Playing against teams like
that helps us get better."

Shoulder surgery doesn't


prevent return to sports

Athletes and weekend warriors can keep playing


Special to the News-Sun
KEYSTONE, CO -
Replacing a joint in any part
of the body often leads to a
,long recovery process and
the possibility of not being
able to return to a sport or
activity.
However, a new study
presented at the American
Orthopaedic Society for
Sports Medicine's
(AOSSM) Annual Meeting
in Keystone, Colorado,
(July 9-12) presents find-
ings that even an older indi-
vidual who receives a total
shoulder joint replacement
can return to full participa-
tion within approximately
six months of surgery.
"In our study, approxi-
mately 94 percent of the
patients who have a total
shoulder arthroplasty or
joint replacement, were able
to return to sports and 85
percent were able to return
to the type-specific sport
they were involved in
before the surgery," said
lead 'author, Gregory N.
Drake, DO, shoulder and
elbow fellow, Fondren
Orthopaedic Group, Texas
Orthopaedics Hospital.
The study analyzed a
database of all uncon-
strained total shoulder
arthroplasties performed
between July 1, 2004 and
September 30, 2007 by a
single surgeon.


'Eighty-eight
percent of the
individuals
returned to their
activity levels.'

GREGORY N. DRAKE
Fondren Orthopaedic Group
A questionnaire was sent
to 304 patients with 165
responding.
Eighty-seven of the
respondents regularly par-
ticipated in sports prior to
surgery.
The average age of the
patients was 68.5 with an
age range from 47-93.
Patients were followed
for a minimum of one year.
Researchers noted that
activity modification until
the six month point in the


*rehabilitation protected the
shoulder against any conse-
quence of sport, such as a
deceleration injury when a
golf club hits the ground or
a fall-during a tennis match .
Contact sports after joint
replacement surgeries are
generally discouraged for
the rest of an individual's
life, no matter their age.
"Eighty-eight percent of
the individuals in our study
returned to their activity
levels for periods greater
than 30 minutes per session
with the same type of inten-
sity. It also appears that the
most likely reason for
returning to the same level
of participation is depend-
ent on the motivation of the
individual. Athletics can be
a great motivator for sur-
'gery and an even greater
one for patients to stick to a
rehabilitation schedule,"
said Drake.


Public health resource guide on

harmful algal blooms now available


MyFWC.com
The Florida Fish .and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the Florida
Department of Health
recently released a new tool
to assist local health offi-
cials when responding to
harmful algal blooms in
Florida.
The Resource Guide for
Public Health Response to
Harmful Algal Blooms in
Florida addresses critical
HAB issues that may affect
the health of Florida's resi-
dents and visitors and rec-
ommends procedures, to
handle events and minimize
their impacts.


In Florida, many species
of harmful microscopic
algae can affect fish and
wildlife, and some can
cause human illness.
The guide is the first ref-
erence that compiles critical
information related to these
species as well as other
harmful algal bloom issues
in one easy-to-use source.
Along with suggested
operating procedures, the
guide includes background
information on harmful
algal blooms, descriptions
of different 'potential sce-
narios and contact informa-
tion for various bloom-
related organizations.


In addition to being a go-
to reference for health offi-
cials, -the guide provides
easy-to-read information for
the public to learn about this
topic.
Based on recommenda-
tions from the Public Health
Technical Panel of Florida's
Harmful Algal Bloom Task
Force, scientists and man-
agers developed the guide to
meet the critical need for
this resource.
For more information on
harmful algal blooms in
Florida, visit
research.MyFWC.com or

icine/aquatic/index.html.

Ozone All-Stars set to face Grand Ridge Saturday


Continued from 1B
It was a valuable experi-
ence, seeing as how it came
on the heels of those now 12-
year olds being quickly oust-
ed from the state Ozone play-
offs last year in two straight
games.
Put that experience and tal-
ent together and Sebring has
a team that should make
some noise in Marianna.
The slate begins Saturday
at 2 p.m. as the team faces
Grand Ridge, with Baker
scheduled to get the nod on
the mound.
"Those are my three hors-
es," Gomez said. "(Jonathan)
Struck, Jordan (Baker) and
Alex Forde. With them, our
pitching is in real good
shape."
The three aces aren't the
only strong suit.
"We solid at every posi-
tion, we have the pitching
and everyone can hit," assis-
tant coach Tim Baker said.
"With kids this age, some-
times it depends on which
team.shows up. But if they all
just play up to what they're
capable of, we should be in
position to.win it." "
Of course, an old nemesis
will be on hand to provide a
challenge as West Seminole,
the title winner in Gomez'
three years, has their
American and National teams

RELIGION


What is real worship?


Just before Jesus was to
offer His life on the cross for
the sin of the world, he visit-
ed with some of his dearest
friends on earth. He sat with
Lazerus and enjoyed fellow-
ship, while Martha was busy
serving them and taking care
their needs. But their sister
Mary had her mind on some-
thing else. She realized that
her Lord was present and
was worthy of her worship.
She took a very expensive
perfume, an alabaster box of
ointment, broke it open, and
poured it on Jesus. She sac-
rificed something very pre-
cious for Someone that was
even more precious to her.
Let us consider this
woman's act of worship. It
came from her heart. It was
not purposely to make a
show, and certainly not to
lift up herself. She was inter-
ested in showing Jesus what
He meant to her and how
much she loved Him. Sadly,
others watching this scene
stood by and criticized her.
In fact, Judas Iscariot
reproached her and said it
would have been better to
sell the ointment and give
the money to the poor, rather
than waste it in this worship-
ful act. (Hours later, he went
and sought to betray Jesus
for money.) Jesus blessed
Mary and noted that her sac-
rifice pictured his approach-
ing death and burial. He said
that this act of worship
would be a memorial spoken
of her throughout the world.
Worship means to pros-
trate oneself in homage to
God: to bow down, humbly
beseech, and do reverence.
In Psalms, it says, "let us
worship and bow down..."
In I Corinthians, it says


Timeless
Treasures
Luke Knickerbocker


"...falling down on his face,
he will worship God..."
Only God is to receive
worship'; no one else
deserves worship. It is inter-
esting to note that Jesus
received worship on several
occasions. Jesus was God in
flesh: he was the image of
God. He desires to be wor-
shipped by all nations. Every
knee will bow, including
Judas Iscariot, and Satan
himself. Satan has always
sought to steal the glory
from God and be wor-
shipped. From the beginning,
he lifted himself up and was
cast out of heaven. He
tempted Jesus to worship
him. Today, he still seeks to
be worshipped.
Do you truly worship
God? Jesus said in John 4,
"true worshippers shall wor-
ship the Father in spirit and
in truth." There must be an
emphasis on the spirit when
we worship. In the Bible,
when people were in God's
presence, they fell upon their
faces to worship him. Much
of what is labeled "praise
and worship" in contempo-
rary services does not reflect
Biblical worship. Blending
'Christian words and rock
music is a contradiction and


fuels a fleshly appetite. It
has a form of godliness, but
denies the power thereof. It
excites the emotions and
entertains the senses, but
much of it is not of the
Spirit. When Moses came
from the mountain, he saw
the people worshipping the
golden calves. The music
they danced to sounded like
the "noise of war". They
were so moved by the music
and idolatry, they took their
clothes off.
Whatever, happened to the
depth and doctrine of the
old-fashioned hymns that
move the heart and mind?
When I got saved, the Lord
gave me a new song in my
heart, even praise to my
God. I became a new crea-
ture; old things passed away,
and behold all things became
new. I love to worship God
in a heart-moving, spirit-
renewing church service.
It is time we took wor-
ship seriously. When we
gather to worship, we must
come with a prepared heart
and the right frame of mind.
When it becomes special,
we'll want to sacrifice our
time and resources to give
our best to God. We'll come
early, wear the best we have,
give freely of our finances,
and not act in a way that
would distract from the
Word and work of God. We
must repent from our casual
and carefree approach of a
high and holy God, and bow
down and worship Him in
holiness.
