Thousands of orange pumpkins now dot the hillside along U.S. Highway 441 just north of Hitchcock's Market in Alachua. As a
month-long fundraiser for the First United Methodist Church of Alachua's children and youth ministry, the 'Pumpkin Patch'
offers not only the bright orange gourds but other varieties as well and loads of fun for kids.

ALACHUA- With the fall season in full
swing and Halloween just around the comer,
there's no better time to get in the spirit than
now. And nothing says 'fall' better than
pumpkins.
Luckily, anyone in search of the needed
seasonal decoration need not look further
than, the First United Methodist Church
"Pumpkin Patch." Whether for carving
into jack-o-lanters, baking in a pie or


simmering in a stew, pumpkins of every kind
are available.
The youth at First United Methodist
Church of Alachua are conducting the
month-long fundraiser that began Oct. 1 and
runs through Oct. 31.

Alachua's bus service ends two-year run, future up in air


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Cats are said to have nine lives, but
one local feline may have reached the end of its rqad at
least in its firstlife.
The City of Alachua .Transit System (CATS) has
completed its'two-year trial run, and city officials have
decided to discontinue the current route so the system can
focus on Alachua residents, said assistant city manager
Danielle Judd.
The existing CATS route includes a trek around much
of Gainesville which takes riders to and from Alachua.
The CATS program had historically seen relatively
low ridership,numbers although there had been a recent
growth trend for the service.' Rising fuel costs were
likely pushing motorists out of their cars and onto the
bus. But those increased numbers apparently haven't
been enough to save the service in its current form.,
"Our plans at this point are to continue CATS, but in


a different light," Judd said.' "It will focus on providing.
a transportation alternative to Alachua residents to reach
services and locales within our corporate limits. CATS
has not ended, but will simply provide a different level
and type of service."
The route will continue to operate through the month
of October, and bus passes will be honored until Oct.
31.
Although the route in the City of Gainesville will
soon end, city officials plan to create limited fixed routes
around the City of Alachua in a few months. It is likely
that a component of the new service, will include a
connection with Gainesville's existing Regional Transit
Service (RTS).
City officials have hired a consultant group, First
Transit, to create options for the reinvented CATS
program.
The company will offer the scenarios to the City
CATS:

The City of Alachua Transit Service (CATS) will see major changes in the:
coming months as city leaders rethink the scope of the program and determine
how the service can be improved to benefit local.residents.

AC units a target for thieves


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
HighSprings-HighSprings
police are urging caution among
area residents and business
owners after a string of recent
thefts have resulted in stripped
air conditioning (AC) units.
High Springs Police Department
(HSPD) Chief James Troiano
said his department is currently
investigating at least four metal
thefts. Three of those incidents


may be related, he said.
For thieves, the coil of an
air conditioner is highly sought-
after because of the amount
of copper it contains. Not
especially valuable for reuse
in another AC condenser, the
copper is instead traded in by
thieves as scrap metal.
The three most recent thefts
are that of condensing coils
which are typically the outside
appliance used in AC systems.

On Main Street in Downtown Beautiful Alachua
4 = .Ionday Sjiurday at I1.00 r,.m.
wwi.ConestogasAlachua.com Ph: 386-462-1294


All four of the reported thefts
are believed to have occurred
overnight. The first theft noted
by Troiano was on Sept. '3 at
Progress Energy, where thieves
are believed to have stolen rolls
of copper wire. All three of the
remaining thefts listed byHSPD
occurred on Sept. 16 during the
overnight hours.
S It is believed that thieves
sneak in under the cover of
darkness to disassemble the air
conditioning compressor and
condenser. What's left when
they leave is little more than a
pile of aluminum, a nonworking
AC and a rather large repair bill
for the property owner.
HSPD doesn't currently
have any suspects for the crimes
according to Troiano. But he is
asking that property owners take
precautions by illuminating the
outside of homes and buildings,
especially where valuable
appliances are kept. In all three
of the recent AC coil thefts,
there was no outside lighting.
Troiano said taking such a
measure will deter crime.
High Springs is not alone.

GRU:
Continuedfirom page A


GRU has owed the city


money in the past


sent a notice that the payment
was late.
He said the first late bill was
a lack of oversight on his part,
and as soon as he discovered
it had not been paid, he.sent a
payment.
City officials decided to
hold off on paying a second
bill, because the charges have
about doubled over the past four
months.
"As a steward for the city,
I did not want to just pay these
increased amounts without
some sort of investigation,"
Watson wrote.in a Sept. 19 letter
to GRU. "I apologize that this
was not clearly communicated
to you prior to this letter."
The city was paying about
$600,000 prior to the summer,
but increased coal and oil prices
have driven the bills up to
around $1.2 million.
"Obviously, we had some
concerns about the large
discrepancy," Watson said. "We
just want to make sure we are
doing what's best for this city
and its citizens."
Watson wrote in a certified
letter to GRU that the increasing
costs were creating issues with
the cash flow in relation to when
the city pays the bills and when
the customers pay the city for
their electricity.
At a Wednesday meeting
between Watson, Finance


Director Marcian Brown and
GRU, Watson cleared the air
and explained his worries with
the increased bills.
Watson wrote GRU a check
for the full $1.2 million the city
owes the company, and Watson
asked the company to waive
the thousands of dollars in late
interest payments owed.
GRU officials said they will
consider waiving the fees, and
they will let Watson know of
their decision in "short order,"
Watson said.
Watson said the city has not
pushed GRU in the past when
GRU owed the city money, and
he expects them to return the
favor.
"There have been instances
in the past when GRU owed
the city a substantial amount
of money, but we didn't punish
them," Watson said, "and we
hope they will do the same for
us."
The third bill in question is
not due until later in October,
and Watson said he expects to
have that bill paid on time with
no issues.
"We have come up with a
clear way to address any future
issues, so I don't believe this
will happen again in the future,"
he said.

Obituaries: The obituaries in this section are considered
news and are published free of charge by Alachua County
Today. Obituaries may be edited for style, space and
policy.


SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today
are partnering to bring you "A Familiar Face." The purpose of this
campaign is to get young people reading. Alachua County Today
will publish an eight-chapter serialized short story, "A Familiar
Face" as part of our Newspapers in Education program. The
newspapers will be sent home with the' students after the project
for the week is completed so'that parents can share the stories with
their children.


Commission, who will vote on
the option they believe, is best
for Alachua residents.
The city has $40,000
budgeted for the operation
of CATS, in. 2009, and city
officials will look for other
funding partners in the future,
Judd said.
CATS started as a two-
year pilot program on Sept.
12, 2006. The system was
created to match job seekers
with prospective employers in


the City of Alachua and to help
elderly citizens get to medical
appointments in Gainesville.
The transit system was also
designed to take traffic off of
U.S. Hwy 441.
The bus system was
originally funded by a FDOT
grant, but when the grant ended
in September, city officials.
decided to. continue the
service.


SA homework assignment leads Scotty Brown to discover "A
Familiar Face" in the pages of history and to learn about the role
a boy from Missouri had as an adult in international decisions
of humanitarian aid, war and racial equality. Scott takes from
the lesson a new appreciation for the top job inAmerica and the
realization that even he could someday be president of the United
States.


Q: What's the proper role
for mouth rinse in home oral
care?
A: Mouth rinse has 'its
place.in your home oral-care
regimen. But its.use is not, a
substitute 'for regular brushing
and flossing. In fact, while the
feeling of a fresh mouth and
breath is good, one danger
from over-the-counter mouth
rinse is that the fresh feeling
it creates may cover up an
unpleasant taste or odor that
is the first tell-tale sign of a
problem like gum disease.
That said, the American
Dental Association has
bestowed its Seal of Approval
on a number of mouth rinses.


Those rinses have been
recognized by the ADA as
effective in helping prevent a
build-up of plaque above the
gum line when used as directed.
If you area regular mouth rinse
user, dentists suggest that you
brush and floss immediately
Before rinsing. A mouth rinse
is most effective on clean
teeth. There are prescription
mouth rinses that are effective
for dealing with specific types
of problems.
Because children tend to
accidentally swallow mouth
rinse, they should use it only
under adult supervision. Talk
with your dentist about the
right way to use mouth rinse.

Opening the library book, Scottry began to read. The
book had pictures of the hnie house in Lamar, Missouri,

almost like a child's playhouse.
Eagerly, Scotty read and looked at the pictures. But after
about an hour, he put his book away. He had promised to
play ball with his friends.
Grabbing his ball glove, Scotty hurried outside. His father,
1 who was weeding flowerbeds, waved to Scotty as he raced
off to the park.
Most of mte boys were already at the ball field. Everyone
had brought gloves, and two boys had baseballs. But no one
S had brought a bat Jimmy Powers, who lived near the park,
offered to run home and get one. Scotty went home wiih
S Jlimmy and soon they came running down the street. Jimmy
carried a wooden bat and Scorty carried an aldtinum one.
Jirimy always used a wooden bat when he played ball. Scotty
and his friends couldn't understand why. Jimmy said it just felt
S better, and he liked the sound of the ball hitting the wooden bat.

S Since Jimmy was the best barer in school it was hard for the
other boys to argue. Everyone had Died the wooden bat, but
it didn't help them hit the ball any better. But when .limmy
used the wooden bat, he could hit the ball farther than
anyone else.
As soon as Scorty and Jimmy got the batb to the park, the play
began. Each team played hard and everyone was having
a good dime. Scotty played far out In left field. He enjoyed
)3 playing oit there. From left field, he could watch ever/,one
on the bases and he could see everyone bat.
Ahetr five inning, the teams were tied at seven runs each.
Then, as Scotry's team came up to bat, a lasted bolt of
lightning raced through the sky. This was followed by
a big rumble of thunder.
All the boys knew It was dangerous to play outside when
there was thunder and lighting. It wvas time to go home.
Quickly, the boys had heir equipment gathered up and were
S running out of the park. Scotty ran as fast is he could, but
before he reached home rain began to fall. After losing his cap,
he finally made it to the front porch, but he was dripping wet.

fWxtr AWcr z rAarSr S, H'._ n rn th nesd'


As Scotty sat down in the big swing to remove uis tennis
shoe,, the front door opened. Mr. Brown came out of the
house with a big towel and began rubbing Scotry'- head.
Soon most of the water was gone so Scutry and his father
went inside, leaving the wer ernnis shoes on the porch to dry.


With a steady rain falling, outdoor play was impori;tible. But
Scotry didn't mind. He was ready to get back to his library
book and learn more about
the Preaident who
looked like him.

supernatural. As it continues to
stalk and kill members of the
Baskerville family, Sherlock
Holmes is turned to for help.
The Hound of the
Baskervilles opened Sept.

'A look at amendments on the November ballot


By CRAIG COX
fl'!oday Reporter


In the weeks leading up to the Nov. 4 election,
4lachua County Today will be providing reviews
of the six amendments proposed for the Florida
'Constitution.


Amendment 1: "Proposing an
amendment to the State Constitution to delete
provisions authorizing the Legislature -to
regulate or prohibit the ownership, inheritance,
disposition, and possession of real property by
aliens ineligible for citizenship."

This amendment will delete a phrase in the
Declaration of Rights section of the Florida
Constitution that states immigrants do not have a
right to own property..
According to the Declaration of Rights, "All
natural persons, female and male alike, are equal
before the law and have inalienable rights, among
which are the right to enjoy and defend life and
liberty, to pursue happiness, to be rewarded for


industry, and to acquire, possess and protect
property; except that the ownership, inheritance,
disposition and possession of real property by
aliens ineligible for citizenship may be regulated
or prohibited by law. No person shall be deprived
of any right because of race, religion, national
origin, or physical disability."'
The underlined section of the declaration will
be deleted if the amendment is passed.
The majority of states added the phrase,
directed at Asian-American immigrants, in the
early 1900s.
New Mexico and Florida are the only states
with the phrase left on their constitutions, although
officials from both states are asking voters to
remove the phrase with this year's ballot. '
People pushing for the removal of the phrase
argue that it is discriminatory and outdated.
However, some people argue that the
constitutional amendment is not necessary,
because there are no laws that prohibit immigrants
from owning property.
This amendment is not expected to have any
significant impacts, whether it is passed or not.

NEWBERRY- The city of
Newberry will host the ground-
breaking for the Easton-
Newberry Sports Complex on
Tuesday, Oct. 7 at lla.m. at the
site of the current Newberry
Sports Complex.
The ground-breaking will
mark the initial groundwork that
will be done by the city before
M.M Parrish Construction
Company begins building on
Dec. 1.
The project is a much
anticipated program that
is aimed to help Newberry
capitalize on the sports and
tourism industry, the City of
Newberry parks and recreation
director, Richard Blalock, said.


"We want to draw an
economic base of tourism in
Newberry," Blalock said. "This
is the first piece of it."
The Easton-Newberry
Sports Complex will house three
different entities in the facility
including: Newberry Parks and
Recreation Department, Easton
Archery and the National
Alliance for the Development
of Archery.
According to Blalock, the
sports complex plans to hire a
level-four archery instructor
to start an archery program
at the facility that will reach
out to schools and develop
a curriculum for archery
instructors.
The facility will also be
an international complex as
Easton plans to bring athletes


from South America and
Pan-America to train for the
Olympics at the facility and will
help keep archery a thriving
sport in these countries.
Newberry's Backyard
Barbecue will be catering
the event, and several of
Newberry's prominent figures
plan on attending such as city
and county commissioners,
Alachua County School
Board staff and members of
the National Alliance for the
Development of Archer among
many others.
The $2.4 million project has
a tentative completion deadline
for July 2009 and is one of eight
archery centers that Easton is
building across the country. -

pond. That evening, while they
are recovering from their chase,
they decide to get married. A
wedding soon follows. And
it's not long before Perdy gives
birth to 15 Dalmatian puppies.
Anita works for Cruella de
Evil's fashion firm. Before she
was married, she had designed
a coat for Cruella, which looks
like it could be made out of
the fur skins of Dalmatians.
So, Cruella wants to buy the
puppies for the purpose of
turning their fur into this coat.
When Roger and Anita won't
sell, Cruella fires Anita and
promises revenge.
When the puppies are
stolen, Pongo and Perdy
not only find out where the
youngsters are hidden, but they
also discover that Cruella has
their 15 puppies with another 84
Dalmatian puppies imprisoned
in a building in Sussex. The rest
of the movie shows how the
101 Dalmatians escape from
Cruella and back to Roger and
Anita.

Economy puts downtown building on hold


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter

HIGH SPRINGS The
construction of the building on
the site of the Vogel Grocery
Store on the corer of First and
Main streets in downtown High
Springs is at a standstill until
2009, said architect and partner
in the Land Design South,
Robert Bentz.
Bentz said the plans for the
site are still moving forward,
but construction is certainly


postponed.
"All you need to do is
watch the news and see how
the economy is affecting
everything," Bentz said.
However, Bentz said he
may lease out the vacant Vogel
Grocery Store to an interested
party while construction is on
hold. If construction of Bentz's
building begins simultaneously
during the leasing of the existing
Vogel Grocery Store, both
businesses would continue to
reside on the same property until


the lease of the grocery store
expired.
"If we were to lease it out,
for example, we would build
a portion of our building to the
side of the grocery store," Bentz
said.
The plans for the 20,000
square feet of property include
a design and style much like an
old main street atmosphere. The
aesthetic aspect of the building
will be similar to other buildings
in downtown High Springs and
Alachua with a brick finish,


stucco bandings, awnings and
window treatments for an old
fashioned, main street look.
The building will be two
stories with the first floor
designated for retail space and
the second floor for office space.
While the construction is on hold,
the architects are continuing to
approve businesses and tenants
for rental spaces in the building.
Also in continuation with the
planning process, Bentz and his
partnered company, Land Design
South, have recently received


approval from the city to build
a gas station on the property
but are debating on whether to
replace it with another user such
as a bank.


"The plans for the site are still
going on, but as far as building,
'when?' is the question," Bentz
said. "Not this year."

Regulator bullies


"John, you should do a story
on the Whole Foods/Wild Oats
merger and the FTC's continued
bizarre bullying of us over a year
after we completed the merger. Is
Whole Foods a monopoly? The
answer is obvious to everyone with
common sense: "Of course not!"
We are less than 1 percent of the
retail food market in the USA and
less than 10 percent of the organic
foods market. No one is compelled
to shop at any of our stores, and
our competition is everywhere."
That's the start of an angry email
I got recently from John Mackey,
Whole Foods CEO. I don't know
the intricacies of antitrust law or
the secrets of this case, but I think
Mackey has a point.
Outside the Federal Trade
Commission building in
Washington, D.C., twin sculptures
sum up the government's attitude
toward economic freedom. They
depict a muscular figure heroically
holding back a wild horse that
presumably would wreak havoc
if let loose. The title is "Man

How typical of government.

The FTC lawyers believe that
the Whole Foods-Wild Oats merger
is costly to consumers. But they
seem oblivious to the costs their
own policies impose. As Mackey
told me:
S"Whole Foods has. now spent
over $35 million in legal expenses
battling the FTC ... We do not
know how much of taxpayers'
money the FTC has wasted. With
the FTC continuing to bring anti-
trust actions, we will spends tens
of millions in additional legal
expenses and waste enormous
management time dealing with the
FTC instead of creating value for
our customers.
"This thing will now likely
drag on for many years into the
future before all the legal options
are exhausted by both sides."
Taxpayers and consumers will
pick up that tab, just as they did
when the Justice Department spent
13 years prosecuting IBM, before
finally dropping monopoly charges
in 1982. What a waste of time and
money. If IBM had monopoly
power, why wasn't it able to'
dominate the PC market? And why
is it now smaller than Microsoft?


The problem Mackey cites goes ,T
beyond the FTC. Despite media q:,

SNowthat the media is screaming \

I assume we'll see even more

If America's professional

will regulate until they kill off just

Economy puts Canterbury



development in limbo


p [YF11I~F1 IhiI ~I1 l


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY- America's
current economic situation has
caused banks to fail, mortgages
to rise and the housing market
to plummet, but this slump
may be the saving grace for
the-: Canterbury Equestrian.
Showplace as the developer of
Newberry Oaks will postpone
development on the horse park
until real estate makes a turn
around.
-When Gary Weseman
of. Weseman Builders Inc.
bought the 150 acres of land
surrounding the horse park in'
2004, he preserved 40 acres for
the equestrian facility but left
an air of uncertainty for when it
would be developed.
Weseman met Monday
with the unofficial group,
The Friends of Canterbury, a
committee formed to pursue
grants to purchase Canterbury,
to. negotiate on his plans for the
land on the horse park.
Newberry City. Manager
Keith Ashby said the result of
thenmeeting was that Weseman
does not currently have a'price
tag on the property, but the group
has decided to move forward
with the process of getting the.
land, appraised and applying
for grants to possibly purchase
Canterbury from Weseman.
"We will need to obtain an
unofficial appraisal value and
go back to Mr. Weseman with
that," Ashby said. "From that
information we'll go forward to
the state if he is a willing seller
and if he agrees that the price
is right." . ..
If Weseman agrees on the
appraised price of the land
for the Canterbury Equestrian
Showplace, the City of
Nevberry will apply for grants
from the Florida Communities
Trust program which has funds
administered from the state's
land acquisition program,
Florida Forever.
Also involved in the project
is the Conservation Trust for
Florida, a non-profit land trust
program that will provide
technical assistance when the
City of Newberry begins to
write the gtant applications.
"Canterbury is one of the
only equestrian showplaces in
the area and has huge impacts
in the horse farm industry,"
Busy Shires Byerly, executive
director of the Conservation
Trust for Florida, said. "It helps
the local economy because
there is the feed store, tack
store, hotels and gas stations
that benefit from these horse
shows. Most importantly, .we
want Mr. Weseman's blessing
to move forward."
Thegrantacquisitionprocess
will require as many as 300
hours of work which includes
data gathering, communication
with related individuals and
the application process for the
grants, Ashby said.
To make this a realisticcause
despite the work-load, Ashby
has assigned the management
of the project to an intern for
the City of Newberry, ,Husan


Wahdan, a political science
student at the University of
Florida.
"I think this project is
important because it's not
something that just came out
of the blue," Wahdan said. "It
came out of concerns from
the community. Keith Ashby
has really taken initiative on
it, and he thought I could help
the project be successful in
reaching its goals."
If Weseman agrees on. the
appraised price for the property,
the members of the unofficial
group Friends of Canterbury
will have to submit the grant,
application by April 1 and will
then find out the result of the
grant request in September
2009.
A. possible incentive that
the committee has proposed


to Weseman is to re-invest the
equivalent of the capital gains
tax that he would have to pay
from this purchase back' into
the facility as a donation. This
would in turn defer the tax to
be paid by Weseman and also
contribute to the showplace.
According to Weseman, he
has no intentions to develop
Canterbury in the near future
because of the strain that the
economy has put on the housing
market, but if the value of the
land increases within the next
few years, he may consider
development.
"I don't feel like there will
be development nor change
in the usage of that land in the
near future," Weseman said.
However, since the purchase
of the acreage in 2004 and the
closing of the cross country


field in 2005 that gave way -to
the development of Newberry
Oaks, the equestrian community
has voiced concerns about the
fate of Canterbury.
"To lose something like
that would be a huge impact
on the community," Barbara
Petty, president of the Deep
South Dressage and Combined
Training Association, said.
"The horse community uses
that facility for meetings,
shows, regional championships
and concerts, and it is the site
for some prestigious dressage
shows. If it is taken away, you
would have to go to the Florida
Horse Park which doesn't
have sufficient stabling. If you
take that facility away, where
will these people go for these
events?"

Watson gets his Way


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA City Manager
Clovis Watson Jr. has a way
of pushing himself and his
employees to make the City of
Alachua the best it can possibly
be. That's why it is fitting that
the road in front of his childhood
home was renamed Clovis
Watson Jr. Way on Tuesday,
said Mayor Jean Calderwood.
Children and residents of
Merrillwood Annex looked
on as city officials, business
owners and citizens gathered
to celebrate the renaming of
Merrillwood Drive.
Francis Leslie belted out
songs for the awestruck crowd,
and Hill's BBQ and Catering
cooked for the event.
Vice-Mayor Bonnie Burgess
suggested the name change
during Watson's performance
evaluation at the Sept. 8 City
Commission meeting.
"I've never seen a city
manager who wouldn't take his
birthday off!" Burgess joked.
Burgess said one could write
volumes of accolades about
Watson's accomplishments.
"Who would have known
that little guy from Merrillwood
would grow up to be the man he
is today?"
Mayor Jean Calderwood'
said Watson has devoted his
life to the City of Alachua, and
he has carried the city through
tough times.
"The toughest situations are
when we need broad shoulders
to carry the load," she said, "and
Watson has been that for us."
,Calderwood also took the
opportunity to apologize to
Watson's family because he has
to be away from his house so
much.
"We believe Mr. Watson
belongs to the whole city," she
said. "He's always there for us,
and he allows us to interrupt his
family time."
Watson choked up with
emotion after bearing the
i comments of people who spoke
about his accomplishments in


BRYAN BOUKARIAlachua County 7bday

the city and in his life.
"Those who know me know
, I'll drop a tear in a minute,"
Watson said. "And I'm not
ashamed 6f it."
He said the street in front
.of his childhood home was the
perfect place to have renamed


in his honor.
"Wow," Watson said. "I
cannot be more proud to have
a' road named after me there at
the projects where I was raised.
I'd rather tha tan Hwy 441,
and I truly mean that."

A message from the desk of


Sheriff Sadie Darnell


Prevent burglaries


Two of the easiest ways
we have to prevent burglaries
are to lock our car doors and
close our garage doors. These
two prevention measures take
seconds to accomplish but
save thousands, of dollars in
stolen property.
In the first 25 days of
September, over 16 garage
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 *0 0


burglaries were reported to the
Sheriff's Office. Every one of
these was easily preventable
by the victim just closing their
garage door.
Think of what is in your
garage right now. Usually,
these items are for yard work
and they are very portable.
Would-be criminals can drive
by on the public street and
see everything that is in your
I0 0 0 0 0 9 0 0 0, 04


garage if the door is left open.
In a matter of seconds they
can enter your open garage
and leave, with your property.
This is almost a shopping
spree to them. The worst part
of this scenario is that the
unsuspecting homeowner is
usually at home when these
thefts- occur. We do not let
strangers into our homes,
what makes our garages any
400 0 0 00 0 0 0 0


different? What if the criminal
thinks the garage is. open,
maybe the house is too?
Take the extra time to
close the garage door. Do not
ever leave the door open and
unattended unless you can
easily monitor it. Those few
extra seconds it takes to close
the door may save you having
to replace your property.

The war within


Our final segment
brings powerful words of
encouragement. We have seen
the battle for the mind is a
life long battle. It is a difficult
battle. It is a battle that we can
win. We learned that we are to
subdue and/or cast off sin that
tries to enslave us. We looked
at the effect that


these sins have on
the mind and how
they cloud your
judgment. Today
we will learn
three valuable
lessons: 1) We are
being renewed in
knowledge in the
image of Christ
(v.10); 2) There
is no difference
in people based
upon nationality


REV. LEONA
TRAIN
New Life Coi
Chapel, Gai


or origin (v.ll);
3) Christ is all and in all
(v.ll). .
"Put to death, therefore,
whatever belongs to your
earthly nature: sexual
immorality, impurity, lust, evil
desires and greed, which is
idolatry. Because of these, the
wrath of God is coming. You
used to walk in these ways,
in the life you once lived. But
now you 'must rid yourselves
of all such things as these:
anger, rage, malice, slander,
and filthy language from your
lips. Do not lie to each other,
since you have taken off your
old self with its practices and
have put on the new self, which
is being renewed in knowledge
in the image of its Creator.
Here there is no Greek or Jew,
circumcised or uncircumcised,
barbarian, Scythian, slave or
free, but Christ is all, and is in
all." (Colossians 3:5-11 NIV)


We are made completely
holy at salvation, which is
to be made completely holy
in our spirit. At salvation the
Holy Spirit takes up residence
in us bringing the life of Jesus
into our lives. He melds us
together. The holiness we
experience is not ours through
righteous,living, but
Rather His through
His indwelling.
The Bibles says
the following in 1
'J Corinthians 1:30,
"It is because of
PP him that you are
Sin Christ Jesus,
'// who has become
S for us wisdom
ARD R. from God--that is,
A our righteousness,
immunity holiness and
nesville redemption."
We are
completely holy at salvation,
just not fully mature. We must
grow spiritually in order to
win the war of the mind over
the sinful flesh. The flesh's
strength in the battle for the
mind remains consistent
throughout your life, It is
only through the strengthened
maturing spirit that you win
the war. The key to sustained


Part III

success is to continue to feed
your spirit or it will grow weak
and lose control of the mind
back over to the flesh.
There is no difference in
man when it comes to the need
for a Savior. Each must come to
Him. Those who do, find life.
Those who don't, find eternal
condemnation. Your: religion,
church affiliation ard personal
convictions cannot save you.
Only Jesus can. It does not
matter how good,' which is a
coined phrase for "not as bad,"
or how bad you have been. No
Savior'- no salvation. Know
the Savior know you are
saved.
Conclusion: Jesus lives in
us. He lives through us, as we
grow more, mature. The more
mature one grows, the more
evident that Jesus lives in
them. The weaker spiritually
Sone grows the less the life of
Christ is- being revealed in
that person. The flesh will not
yield. It must be subdued until
death. The battle you face is
the same battle that' everyone
faces. Salvation and victory
only come through Jesus.
