ing. Christian Estrada, seated left pays close attention.


Dressel ready,
'to see where it
goes from here'
News-Sun staff'
AVON PARK One door
closed for Shelby Dressel
Tuesday night, but another
one opened.
The 19-year-old Avon
Park singer made it to the
final round of cuts on
"American Idol" during
Tuesday night's episode, but
got the bad news that ghe
didn't make the final 24.
But Dressel apparently
made a good impression dur-
ing Hollywood Week, which
she capped off with a strong
rendition of Boston's "More,
Than A Feeling."
As she was walking away
from the celebrity judges
after Randy Jackson broke
the bad news, either Ellen
Degeneres or Kara
DioGuardi was overheard
saying "That was .hard,"
prompting notoriously .hasty
Simon Cowell to say',. *'" '
"That's the wrong decision."
Apparently, Degeneres
wants to give Dressel anoth-
er chance to sing in front of
a national audience.
Wednesday morning, '
Degeneres announced that
she was going to have
Dressel on her syndicated
talk show.

LAKE PLACID "This story is
about Shelby and the kids," the teacher
said. "Please put the emphasis where it
belongs. That's all I ask."
The teacher was standing among his
1'tudents in Lake Placid Middle
School's ESE class.
The students were brimming with
excitement. Feet tapped the f.loor.fin-
gers drummed on desktops.
They were waiting for a special
guest, Shelby Dressel, the i9-yar-old
Avon Park native who just completed a
mind-boggling run on "American'
Idol," the popular television reality


show that gives new talent a chance.
The students were asked how
Shelby came to be a guest in their
class. "Cause we're smart," Christian
Estrada said, "and we made her some
cards."
Shelby was running a little late,
which turned out to be a good thing.
Anticipation is often the most exciting
part of an event, and the students were
almost besides themselves in the best
kind of way.
"My heart beats when I meet some-
body," Christian said. "Oh boy, I'm

Working with letters as tall as 6 feet, a crew installs the signage for the SFCC Theatre for the Performing Arts in prepara-
tion for its open house. Exterior changes such as this are only a small reflection of the extensive renovation to the theatre
and its adjoining work space. From 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 28, the community can view the new theatre and the
behind-the-scenes production areas that are rarely open to the public. In addition to theatre tours, guests can enjoy the
music of Celebration Brass and the Highlands County Concert Band and view the folk art exhibit, 'Just Above the Water,'
at the SFCC Museum of Florida Art and Culture.

Range commander to speak

Special to the News-Sun
In recent months, rumors
have been circulating about
the possibility of the mili-
tary's newest fighter-bomber
might be utilizing the Avon
Park Air Force Range in the
near future.
The F-35 Lightning II is
reputed to be twice as loud at
take-off and landings as the
F-15 Eagle. Under normal
training missions, aircraft
using the Range do not' land
nor take off at the Avon Park
AF Range but fly in from
other bases.
LtCol Charles E. "Buck"

of the Avon Park Air Force
Range, will address these
and other concerns on

Don't panic over brain

drain in Avon Park


Avon Park has
careened from
one emer-
gency to another for so
long the current situa-
tion may not raise
much comment.
But C.B. Shirey's abrupt
.retirement coming while
the search continues for a
city manager, two members
of the city council are only
weeks in office, and the fire
department still lacks a chief
- leaves the City of Charm
seriously short of experi-
enced leadership, not to men-
tion simply short-handed.
We have sympathy for
Maria Sutherland, who was
once the city's project man-
ager and now that and just
about everything else. Her
plate is so full she is probably
mainlining Pepto Bismol.
City clerk Cheryl Tietjen,
undoubtedly as stressed, has
our sincere sympathy as well.
Having served for 15 years
as city manager, the longest


such tenure in the city's his-
tory, Shirey had shifted roles
recently to planning and zon-
ing and the municipal airport.
What makes the timing of
his departure particularly
unfortunate is the decisions
looming in the near future -
annexations for the city and
the creation of an airport
authority.
While- Shirey has certainly
earned his golden years, his
loss at this moment will be
felt.
We hope the council rises
to this occasion, difficult
though it will be, to use this
situation as an opportunity to
make long overdue correc-
tions. We hope the council
does not use Shirey as an
easy target, turning him into
a scapegoat for the city's ills
without addressing the real
issues.
So many of Avon Park's
problems are self-made it is
heartbreaking, frustrating
and infuriating.
At times it seems as if our
leaders walked backwards


Board meeting
was of little use
Editor:
A number of people left a County
Planning and Zoning meeting Tuesday
after learning that the hearing would not
address their concerns. Board members
were going over numbered items, page
by page, in the proposed
Comprehensive Plan. Unlike past hear-
ings, the screen visible to the public
never changed, not displaying items
under consideration. Much of the dis-
cussion centered on the role of Urban
Growth Areas, UGA's and Sustainable
Development.
Paula House, of Lake Placid, wanted
to advocate use of existing infrastruc-
ture. She also wanted to raise concerns
about the failure of Florida's Rural
Land Stewardship Program. This pro-
gram was supposed to allow limited
development while preserving rural
character. The Sustainable Development
proposal that Planning and Zoning is
considering for the next seven year
Comprehensive Plan is a successor to
Rural Land Stewardship. Another issue
is whether the redistribution of develop-
ment rights within the county is legally
a taking of property.
Denise Scott of Venus and Ellen
Peterson of Save Our Creeks echoed
some of the same concerns before leav-
ing. A couple of speakers acknowledged
that the hearing offered little scope for
philosophical objections. Chairman Lew
Carter said that it is difficult to know
how to deal with people who come in
"at the eleventh hour," when numerous
hearings have been held on future
development.
Planning and Zoning member Jim
Brooks said that he does not favor
Urban Growth Areas. Attorney Burt
Harris spoke against the concept, as did
Ray Royce, another prominent citizen.
Dr. Elton Giesendanner told the
Planning and Zoning Board that Urban
Growth Areas could become Urban
Blight Areas. Giesendanner's concern is
that the new plan will give too much to
"special interests" such' as Lykes and
AtlanticBlue.
The Planning and Zoning
Commission recommended approval of
the Lykes development around Nellie
Lakes. One objection had to do with the
Lake Placid visioning plan. Pam
Fentress of Lake Placid raised the point
that the Lykes development is only
three miles north of Lake Placid. Lykes
did not choose to participate in the Lake
Placid Visioning process.
Dr. Giesendanner asked if any of the
Nellie Lakes are Sovereign Lakes,
owned by the state of Florida. If so, the
Governor and Cabinet would have a say
in keeping them open to all citizens.
Lykes personnel said that they are not.
Others disagree.

'Greed is good' can mean
economic death
Editor:
There was a recent article in
Highlands Today titled "The Case for
Choosing Life" by David Sirota that
discussed tax reform vs. spending cuts.
He contrasted two government systems

The first type of government was
found in the city of Colorado Springs,
home of Focus on the Family, and a
"pure" GOP city. The "Christian" town
fathers rejected any kind of tax increas-
es, which has led to a third of the city
lights going dark, and the firing of fire-
fighters, the vice squad, the burglary
division and beat cops. Water for city
parks has been turned off and the vege-
tation is dying. All city pools and
recreation centers and a museum have
been closed, and the city refuses to' pay
for any street paving. Buses no longer
run at night or on the weekends. There
is a tent ghetto made up of people who
have lost their homes. All social servic-
es are being reduced.
The CEO of a nearby luxury hotel is
encouraging the city fathers to slash all
public employee salaries to,$24,000 a
year, the wages he pays his hotel
employees, which is the official pover-
ty level in the state of Colorado.
The economy in this town is failing.
The state of Oregon, on the other
hand, when faced with budget deficits
chose tax reform. They modestly raised
taxes on annual incomes above
$250,000 and hiked the state's $10
minimum corporate income tax.
Naturally, the GOP "I've got mine, to
heck with you" fought a vicious cam-
paign against the measures, which did-
n't succeed, and the Oregon economy
is booming.
As Mr. Sirota points out, the GOP's
"greed is good" can mean economic
death or tax reform can mean economic
life. Republicans tell us that they are
pro-life, but I guess that only applies to
babies.

Time passed and then the
word came from the front
office, Shelby was in the
building.
Christian was sent to
escort her to the classroom.
"I .couldn't wait to see
you," he told her, taking his
responsibility seriously and
leading the way.
In addition to the six ESE
students, several student
mentors had joined the class.
Turns out Dressel used to

"Oh my goodness," -
Dressel called out in sur-

Settled down with a gui-

song for her special audi-
ence. It was the debut of the
piece she intends to sing on
the "Ellen Degeneres Show"
when she goes back to
Hollywood to appear on the
show next week. She wrote
it herself, talking about fol-

Dressel headed back to Hollywood for 'Ellen' appearance


Continued from page 1A
Dressel will fly back to
Hollywood Sunday and will
tape the show on Monday. It
wasn't clear exactly when
the show will air locally, but
it will likely be Tuesday.
She will return to the local
stage on Saturday, March 6,
with a free. show at an Alan
Jay Automotive Network
dealership in Sebring during
the afternoon and also later
that night at Duffer's, where
tickets will be sold.
"It'll be fun getting to
play for everybody back
home because they've seen
somebody from their town
go to Hollywood and be on
national television," she
said. "It will be cool to see
how everybody will react."
It's been a wild ride for
Dressel, whose biggest stage
previous to this was the state
FFA talent show in front of a
couple of thousand people.
Contrast that with the 20-
lus million who watch Idol
every episode, and you've
got a case of a small-town
girl who got some big-time
exposure.
One example: Tuesday,
"Shelby Dressel" was the
14o. 7-ranked search on
gqogle.com and the top
search among all "American
Idol" names. Google Trends
listed her hotness as "vol-
canic" and her Web site got
more than 10,000 hits in less
t on 24 hours.
`"That's insane," Dressel
said of the Google ranking.
S"It blows my mind. I can't
even fathom it."
Part of the buzz was due
to Cowell's comment, which
caught everybody by sur-
prise, including Dressel.
"I had no idea he said
that," she said. "I rewound it
a couple of times just to
make sure I wasn't hearing
something. It was cool to
hear him say that."
Dressel said her
Hollywood trip for
"American Idol" was one of
the most intense things she's
ever experienced.
"It was definitely not what
I thought," she said. "It was
a lot harder than I though it
was going to be. It's defi-
nitely everything they por-
tray on TV physically
exhausting and mentally.and
emotionally draining."
She was so drained that it
took a while for the fact that
her time on the show was
dver to sink in. She said it
kfas a couple of hours before
it hit her.
"I was in shock because I
felt I went out with a bang,"
she said. "I felt good with
the song I chose and felt like
I did it well. It was more
shocking, then later it was

upsetting. At the time, I did-
n't have any emotions left. I
was completely drained of
them.
"I was more frustrated
(than sad) because they did-
n't really give me any good
constructive criticism along
the way. I got some comple-
ments but never really any-
thing to walk away with and
fix."
One thing she did come
away with was the knowl-
edge that Degeneres like her.
And the feeling was mutual.
"I'm glad that she was a
judge because she became
and fan of mind and that's
really cool. I'm glad they
brought her on. She's funny
and she has that cool sense
of humor and kind of eases
the tension."
Still, it was a lightning
bolt out of the blue when she
got the phone call from the
publicity department at the


kapturedbykatara.com
Shelby Dressel will be back
in Hollywood next week.

FOX network about the
Ellen show.
"They said, 'Hey, Shelby,
your episode was good and r
we're just calling to tell you
that Ellen wants you to come
on her show. She became a
fan of yours and wants to
know if you'd be interest-
ed,'" Dressel recalled.
"I said, 'Absolutely.'"


Dressel said the feeling of
finding out about the Ellen
appearance was similar to
the emotions of making it
through to Hollywood on
American Idol.
"It's kind of like the same
thing because it's just surreal
that it happened. It's over-
whelming and exciting.
Coming off the show, I was
thinking that 'I know Ellen
liked me and it would be
cool if I could go on her.
show. Maybe I'll e-mail
her,'" she said with a laugh..
"Then they called."
Now that her AI journey is
over, Dressel is focusing on
the rest of her career and
plans on putting all that she
learned on the show to good,
use.
"Walking away from it,
I've gained a lot of knowl-
edge, like working with dif-
ferent people, being under
that kind of pressure and


being around cameras all the
time. You have to be camera-
ready all the time unless you
want to look rough on TV.
Looking back, I definitely
learned a lot."
Fans from around the
world have been asking her
via Flcebook when she's
going to put out a CD, and
Dressel said that's one of her
main goals.
"I'm writing as much as I
can. I just finished the
newest one that I'm going to
be singing on Ellen, and that
makes four that I've written.
I just want to get a good
album out as soon as possi-
ble."
The past few months have
been a whirlwind for
Dressel, and she's hoping the
success continues as she
launches her musical career.
"It will be cool to see
where it goes from here,"
she said.

Saturday "Damn
Yankees," directed by
George Abbott and Stanley.
Donen in 1958, is 110 min-
utes in length. Richard Adler
and Jerry Ross penned
enough zingy music that Ray
Walston and Gwen Verd6*n
sailed through 1,019 per-
formances on Broadway.
Warner Brothers cannily
called on the same cast plus
Tab Hunter to do the movie.
This time the Faustian story
is applied to baseball. Joe
Hardy, a middle-aged, avid
fan of the feckless
Washington Senators, makes
a deal with "Mr. Applegate"
for baseball prowess'. Hardy
is canny enough to insist on
a loophole in the deal. Gwen
Verdon plays Applegate's
go-fer and tries to induce
Hardy out of using the loop-
hole. This movie is fun and
enjoyable for young people.
No rating.
Feb. 27 "David and


Lisa," directed, by Frank
*Perry in 1962, is 94 minutes
in length. Independently pro-
duced, this film turned out to
be the foremost sleeper of
the '60s. Keir Dullea and
Janet Margolin portray insti-
tutionalized, emotionally
damaged teenagers. With the-
help of an attendant psy-
chotherapist (Howard
DaSilva), the two make steps
toward resolving their isolat-
ed feelings and becoming
friends. While this may not
sound very exciting, this is a
gripping film. Teenagers
may well easily become
engaged with the subject
matter. No rating.

Health report ranks county 41st


Continued from page 1A
out of the 67 counties in
overall healthiness, and 21st
in overall health behaviors.
Collier County was ranked
best in the state, and Union
County was at the bottom.
It provided the same
breakdown for all 50 states.
County health officials
plan to use the report as a
measuring stick of their
progress over time on
improving the healthiness.
"Wealthier counties will
score higher, but there is a lot
we can do to improve our
score," said Robert Palussek,
administrator of the
Highlands County Health
Department in a press release
on Wednesday.
"We weren't the healthiest,
but we weren't the worst,
either. This report will help
us to create data-driven poli-
cies, address areas of con-
cerns and emerging issues.
Our community already has a
variety of organizations
addressing many of these
health issues. We can take
this report as a foundation
for a call to action since the
health of a community is
everyone's responsibility
including the public and pri-
vate sector," Palussek said.
But even though his
agency has room for
. improvement, according to
Palussek the overall score
can only be-improved by a
community effort.
"Hopefully, this will pro-
,vide'some momentum so that
other shareholders in the
county will address some of



The, ws

WWWc WSSu y,.


the other factors. The county
commissioners and the sher-
iff's department, as well as
many other groups, have to
all want to improve this score
for it to happen.
"Take pub-
lic trans-
portation, for
example .
That is one of
the factors
incorporated
in the report,
Palussek and some-
thing we did
not do well on. That is some-
thing we may have to just
live with," Palussek said.
Palussek did say that one
of the issues that can be
addressed directly is teen
pregnancy.
"We are ranked 19 in the
state in teen pregnancies, and
that is something we can


improve upon."
Palussek also said that the
16-page report was packed
full of data, and that just
understanding how each of
the factors was going to be
work.
"It will take some time to
analyze the data. I plan on
getting this out to the com-
munity come mid-year, but
we are going to have to take a
holistic and realistic
approach to this informa-
tion," he said. "The health
department will take a vital
role in implementing a
process to establish goals and
objectives that "will help us
move towards a healthier
Highlands County."

Lady Streaks open new


courts in fine fashion


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@nwessun.com
The Lady Blue Streak
tennis team opened its' sea-
son in strong fashion, S
breaking in the new
courts with a 7-0 win
over Lake Wales
Tuesday after topping Lak
Avon Park by the same
count Monday.
It was a dominant
day against the
Highlanders as no Sebring
players lost more than two
games in each of their
matches.
One of those were Kelsie
Johnson, at number one sin-


gles, as she topped Lady
Highlander Peytotn Andress
6-1, 6-2, while the rest of


bring


e Wales

her teammates were
having little trouble
coasting to wins.
Kaley Walter
went 6-0, 6-0 over
Kayla Miller-
Dembiczak, Shana
Bassett scored a 6-
1, 6-0 win over
Shayla Alexis, Joy


Donglasan went 6-1, 6-1
over Katie Wortz and
Lauren Taylor closed out the
singles matches with a 6-0,
6-0 stifling shutout of


Shakira Ebrohim.
The two doubles matches
went similarly with Johnson
and Walter teaming up at
number one for a 6-1, 6-2
win over Andress and
Miller.
Bassett and Donglasan
then went 6-0, 6-1 over
Alexis and Wortz in the
number two doubles match-
to close out the days effort.
The girls were back in
action Thursday, looking to
continue their strong start at
home against Hardee.
See Sunday's News-Sun
for a recap of that match.

Sebring rides late rallies over Dragons


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Though he fouled this one off, Jesse Baker would soon
knock one over the right-field fence in Sebring's 12-3 win.
over Lake Placid Tuesday in the Bill Jarrett Ford Early Bird
Classic.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK A young,
though game, Lake Placid
squad was hanging tough
most of the way, but a pair of
four-run innings broke open a
12-3 win for Sebring in the
Bill Jarrett Ford Early Bird
Tournament Tuesday at
Charles R. Head Field.
"We're not mentally tough
yet," Green Dragon head
coach Dan
Sebring Coomes said.
"That's what
21 it comes back
to. We take a
Lake Placid lead and the
S pitching was-
3 n't real tight,
the' defense
wasn't tight.
Those things happen and
that's what we're trying to
find out early. We need to
know what they're going to
do in a tight situation."
It was scoreless through
two as Blue Streak Sheldon
Williams and Lake Placid's
David Samperi were working
quickly and effectively early
on.
But Sebring catcher Jesse
Baker drew first blood with a
two-run homer to right in the

tbp of the third before the
Dragons rallied right back.
Rick Miller lead off the
bottom of the frame by taking
one for the team and soon
stealing second.
After advancing to third on
an out, Miller came in on a
wild pitch before Dylan


Callahan and Colb) Delaney
came through with RBI sin-
gles to give Lake Placid a 3-2
lead.
The Streaks came back,
quickly, however, when Josh
Chavis lead off with a ringing
triple in the fourth and was
knocked in by a Matt Randall


single.
As the inning progressed,
Randall found his way to
third and soon came home on
a wild pitch to break the tie
and put Sebring up 4-3..
It would remain that way
as the Dragons couldn't plate

Continued from lB
anyone in their next two at
bats and held off a Blue
Streak threat in the fifth.
* With one out, Baker and
Corbin Hoffner were on
courtesy of a single and walk,
respectively.
Each moved up a base on a
wild pitch, but a suicide
squeeze bunt attempt was
popped up, snared by Dragon
reliever Clayton Mason and
thrown to third for an inning-
ending double play. .
That lack of tight defense
and pitching Coomes men-
tioned then conspired against
the Dragons as Sebring put
up a four-spot in the sixth dn
three walks and a wild pitch.
Four more runs in the sev-
enth only added to the margin


start of the season


as Blue Streak reliever
Cameron Willey finished
things off for the Blue Streak
win.
"We played two games last
week," Coomes said of the
teams trek to the DeSoto
Invite. "But those weren't the
caliber of teams we're seeing
here and will see during the
season. We know we can
play, we just have to work on
getting mentally tough."
On the other side of the
diamond, Sebring head coach
Hoppy Rewis was glad for
the win, but still sees room to
grow.
"They gave us some breaks
with walks and stuff, but they
were right there with us until
(Samperi) got tired and we
know what that's like," he


said. "We could play better
defense, I don't know if it's
because it's early or the
weather conditions. We bat-
tled back the other night (in a
14-11 loss to Pasco), but we
couldn't stop them from scor-
ing.
"We've got four pitchers
with experience and three
more that are just learning,"
he continued. "So once we
find out what we're doing,
' we'll be OK."
Both teams were back in
action Thursday with Lake
Placid facing Lake Region
and Sebring matching up
with DeSoto as the season-
opening tournament -contin-
ued.

Sebring's Grimes signs


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING Sebring
senior Michael Grimes
inked his intent with
Graceland University
Thursday morning, choos-
ing the long haul to Iowa to
play football for the Yellow
Jackets.
"I know they will take
care of him academically,
and he'll get the chance to
play the game we all love,"
said Sebring's head coach
Jared Hamlin at the signing.
"They are a solid school,
and Michael has a solid
work ethic. I think he is
going to do nothing but
improve."


As a senior at Sebring,
the 5'11" Blue Streak
played both ways, pulling
down 22 catches for over
300 yards, according to
Hamlin, on offense.
Defensively, Grimes had
the hips and feet to nab three
interceptions while defend-
ing 10 and making 30-plus
tackles for the, season.
Grimes told the News-
Sun that he was going to
major in Justice and
Sociology at Graceland, and
hoped to see some time soon
on the field as a defensive
back.
"I need to work some, and
I think I might get red-shirt-


ed the first year. I have to
wait and see what the com-
petition is before I can say
more," he said. "Nothing is
decided yet, but I an excited
about going."
' "They seemed to want me,
there though," he added.
"The defensive backs coach
would call a couple of times
a week to check up on me.
They have already made me
feel welcome.."
"He'll do fine. He
improved every year he was
here, and he will continue to
do that," Hamlin said. "I am
sure he will do whatever he
needs to develop to the next
level."

Methodist Church
of Sebring
SEBRING The Rev.


There I stood beside my
dad, the master of cere-
monies, and my five
groomsmen. The wedding
march was playing, and the
audience stood to their feet.
My eyes were fixed on the
balcony above the stairwell
in the grand hall of the Pink
Arbor in downtown Arcadia.
My beloved would appear at
any moment. My heart
pounded as I eagerly await-
ed the first glimpse of my
bride in her white dress.
When Jamie and I had
begun courting six. months
prior to our wedding, we
had agreed that it would be
' best to avoid all physical
contact. Yes, this would
include no kissing, hugging,
and even holding hands until
we said, "I do" at our wed-
ding. During this time of
courtship, we came to know
one another more specifical-
ly with the intention of mar-
riage to follow. It was
important, we realized, that
we become more familiar
with one another intellectu-
ally and spiritually, but not
physically.
The reason is once you
begin touching, where will it
end? In addition, what part
of touching is supposed to
be reserved for marriage?
We believed the best thing
for us to do that would bring
the least regret to us ahd
give the greatest glory to
God, would be to abstain
from touching at all. .
Some-times the best
things in life must be waited
for the longest. For us it
seemed like eternity, but we
soon found out it was worth
it. We thought of it as put-
ting hugs and kisses on lay-
away! We were saving up
many precious "gifts" for
each other to open on the
day'God had ordained July
22, 2006. We endearingly
referred to this time as
Christmas in July.
On March 24th, my
fiance Jamie.and I had been
officially engaged during a
canoe trip on the Peace
River. Having received the
blessing of our parents, we
both knew we were follow-:
ing God's leading in our
lives. I had read a verse in
the Bible that says, "I will
give them-one heart, and one
way..." in Jeremiah 32:39.
This immediately took on a
personal meaning: our paths
were actually merging into
one.
Now the long-awaited
moment had finally arrived.
As the piano played, my
beautiful bride stepped out
of her dressing room. I knew
that in the next few
moments we would unwrap
the first special gift we had
saved for this time.
The program went as
planned: special music was
sung, a charge was given,
our unity candle was lit, and
now we were asked to take
each other by the hand. I
was already nervous about
the thought of kissing Jamie
for the first time, but I was
not expecting the jubilant
experience that was literally
to be placed in my hand. I
was about to grasp ultimate
bliss.
Each touch we had saved
for our wedding day was an
additional gift given by God
to be opened at just this per-
fect time. Yes, today was our
day to give ourselves to
each other "to have and to
hold." As we took each
other's hand, we experi-
enced the most euphoric
feelings imaginable. We
could not help but smile
from ear to ear and stroke
each other's hands for the
remainder of the ceremony.
After exchanging vows, I
was permitted to kiss my
bride. Everything about it
was right and pure and it

was incredi-
ble to give
away my
first kiss.
We were
both elated,
as we were
pronounced
man and
wife. Our
journey
together had
now begun


- hand in hand.
It is a joy to know that
God has guided our steps
giving us a story to tell our
children. This priceless gift
of purity proves that the
principles of the Bible still
work today. The Bible tells
us to "Flee youthful lusts" in
II Timothy 2:22, and for
young men and women to

treat each other as brothers
and sisters in I Timothy
5:1,2. True love will give
consideration for others, but,
selfish lusts seek to steal a
gift so precious as purity.

rewards that are numerous
and inexpressible. I chal-
lenge every single person to :

on your wedding day. If you|
are willing to wait., God can
write your love story.
