Alachua's hometown supermarket will be changing hands In the coming weeks as the founding Hitchcock family finalizes
negotiations for the sale of 11 of the company's 12 stores. Alan Hitchcock and wife, Cathy, plan to spend more time on family,
church and community activities.

Today Reporter
S ALACHUA -The family owned chain
of Hitchcock's grocery stores is being sold,
Alachua County Today learned. Owner,
Alan Hitchcock confirmed that 11 of the
company's 12, stores were being sold to
.Hometown Supermarkets, a mid-west based
grocery chain. Full details on the'deal are
still being worked out he said.
Hitchcock's Archer store is the only
location not being purchased by Hometown
Supermarkets. Hitchcock said he plans to
sell that location as well.


The move to sell was a good one and
'the right one he said.
"The only thing changing at Hitchcock's
will be me," the 56-year-old Hitchcock
commented.
Having been involved in management
of the grocery chain since graduating from
the University of Florida in 1974, Hitchcock
explained that he will still be involved with
the company and the community, but he will
not be running the day-to-day operations of
the store.
An emotional Hitchcock said, "I've
asked myself hundreds of times what my


dad would do."
He also asked his mother, Betty, what
she though his father would do if presented
an opportunity to sell the company..
"She came back with the same answer
that this was the right decision.
."I consider it a blessing to have the
opportunity to hand off our company to
, really good people with the same values and
principals as us."
When asked why he decided to sell,
Hitchcock said he couldn't put his finger on

In an effort to curb drug transactions and other crimes in one
High Springs neighborhood, Police Chief James Troiano closed
the road to vehicular traffic.


Today Staff Report
HIGH SPRINGS High
Springs Police have closed off
a High Springs road due to
drug and alcohol abuse on the

The road, which runs
between 178 Terrace and 179
Terrace, is located on two
private properties, but police
are fed up with the illegal
activities taking place along
the road, said Police Chief Jim
Troiano.


Troiano said one of the
.property owners asked the

she was tired of people parking
on it to conduct deal drugs.
"We've had several

Troiano said, "We are very
concerned with the people
loitering there and selling

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom


of the Crystal on DVD


ByKEESBOER
TodayEntertainment Writer

This is one film I've been
looking forward to seeing again
after it was released in the
theater last summer. On Oct.
14, the film became available
on DVD. I personally think
.that the Indiana Jones movies
;are some of the most fun action
packed movies that you can
watch. It's the very epitome'of
Hollywood film making.:
Harrison Ford once again
takes on the role of Indiana
Jones, but now about 20 years
later. Iwas wondering how they
would explain his aging, but
they did so quite well, by just
moving the story into the future
from World War II. Instead of
fighting Nazis,- no\ we are in
the midst of the Cold War and
the bad guys this time are the
Soviets.
The film starts off out in
the desert southwest,, where
Indiana, Jones is betrayed by a
friend of his to the new enemy,.
the Soviets, who are after a
skull, hidden in the storage unit
where the ark is. As a matter of
fact, if you look closely, you'll
see a comer of the ark.
Shortly after this, he meets
"Mutt" (Shia LaBeouf) a
rebellious independent young
man, who doesn't want to go to
college nor sees the advantage
of this. Of course Indiana Jones
is an archeology professor at a

University!
This time the action takes
"us'-"to' Peru and from Peru
to northern Brazil near the
Amazon river in search of the
Crystal Skull ofAkator;
The film reminds me a lot
of the other 'films. It's very
similar and many times, I found'
myself remembering the earlier
thrillers. Everything from his
hat to his dislike of snakes to
even the phrase Junior is similar
to the old films.' The music is
Identical and you truly. feel
like you're watching an older
Indiana Jones film, except that
it wasn't quite as exciting. The
reason for this may be that the
film really is just like the 80s
films, but I was a lot younger
back then. That is not to say that


the film isn't great, just that it
wasn't as exciting as the older
ones, which might be more of a
thing with the viewer than with
the film itself.
It has tons of action, a great
soundtrack, great locations, and
it's Indiana Jones all the way!
The film is fairly family
friendly with some profanities
and some of the material
might be a bit scary for young
children. Outside of that I have
no reservation in recommending
it.
The two disk DVD- set
comes filled with extras,
including production diaries,.
galleries, various "Making Of'
featurettes and even a. LEGO,
Indiana Jones The Original
Adventures XBOX 360 Game

Impactedwisdom teeth


Q: What does ismean when
a wisdom tooth is "impacted?"

A: When a"wisdom tooth,"
also known as a third molar,
does not fully erupt and is
trapped either fully or partially
in the gum or against another
tooth, it's called "impacted."
This can be an extremely
painful condition, especially if
the soft tissues surrounding the
crown of the impacted tooth
become inflamed and infected.
One of the most common
dental surgical. procedures
is extraction of an impacted
wisdom tooth. This procedure
requires the expertise of the'


oral surgeon. The surgeon will
use. either a local or general
anesthetic to make sure you
experience no pain during the
procedure. A third molar can
have as many as five curved
roots. Sometimes it's necessary
for the oral surgeon to break
the tooth into several sections
to get it out. The surgeon will'
carefully clean and irrigate the
wound and close it with sutures.
Residual pain and swelling
in the jaw may last for a few
days. Your dentist can give.
you a more comprehensive
explanation about the ins and
outs of wisdom teeth.

ARCHER With Election
Day less than two weeks away,
residents in Archer will not only
have the opportunity to vote on
national and state leaders but
leaders for the city commission
as well. Alachua County Today
has created a profile for each
commission candidate to keep
readers informed on the issues.
The following profiles show the
candidates on a personal and
political viewpoint. (Editor's
note: Jane Behringer, candidate
for Seat 3, could not be reached,
and her profile therefore could
not be included here.)

Seat 1:
* Blanch Parker-Incumbent:
Personal Profile: Parker is
the incumbent for seat 1 and'is
86 years old and retired with
two grown children.
Experience: She has served
on the commission for one year
and as commissioner, Parker
worked on the renovation of
the historic former Archer High
School gymnasium histori-
cal grant and served as a head
on the groundbreaking event.
Parker also has government ex-
perience from lobbying the leg-
islature in Tallahassee about the
abandoned gym renovation and
other problems in Archer.
Priorities: According to
Parker, her priorities as com-
missioner would be to see the
citizens are welcome at City
Hall and feel good when they
leave the meetings. She would
also work to encourage busi-
ness-in the city and work on an
affordable sewer system.
Thoughts: "I have more
years and life experience than
anyone running," Parker said.
"Wisdom comes with longev-
ity, and this is a good time for
me to give service to the com-
munity because I do not have a
job right now so I can give more
time to this job."


* Susan Drawdy:
Personal Profile: Drawdy
is the incoming candidate for
seat 1 and is 51 years old with
three grown children. She has
lived in Archer for 23 years and
currently works as a rural car-
rier for the post office.
Experience: Although
Drawdy has no prior political
experience, she believes her
'activity in local unions such as
the rural carrier union and her
abilities to research issues and
approach problems with an
open mind makes her qualified
for the position.
Priorities: As commis-
sioner, Drawdy said her priori-
ties would be the conversion of
Archer Road to the county line
a four-lane road and creating an
affordable sewer system. She
also said she would address the
issue of environmental issues
for landfills and the two law-
suits that Archer is currently
facing.
Thoughts: "My goal is to
have someone run for the com-*
mission seat," Drawdy said.
"There were two times the seat
wasn't filled, no one qualified,
and I wanted to make sure that
didn't happen again. I love liv-
ing in Archer, but Archer is in a
crisis, and we need to make sure
we go in the right direction."

Seat 2:
Roberta Hodges-Incum-
bent:
Personal Profile: Hodges is
the incumbent for seat 2 and is
70 years old with five children
including two in the area.
Experience: Hodges has
served 12 consecutive years on
Archer's city commission where
she said she learned how gov-
ernment operates. According to
Hodges, she has learned that the
slow process in the government
and unfunded mandates causes
problems in the city, but she
has worked with the Alachua
County League of Cities and
the State Board League of Cit-
ies at the county level on com-
munity interests. .

knows how to spend tax payers'
money and has respect for
people who support endeavors
for tax money. According to
MacKenzie, her managerial
experience also comes from her
position as a senior minister for
a 750 member congregation.
Priorities: According to
MacKenzie, her prime concern
is to listen to what the residents
of Archer have to say. She
Said the prime concern she has
heard from parents is that .their
children grow up healthy in a
good environment and that the
streets are safe. Her main issues
are the development of a sewer
system and the issues of roads
and drainage.
Thoughts: "The Alachua
County community has a lot on

School gymnasium. Lopez also
worked as an administrator
under the commission in

and environmental problems.
She also. said she would work
Sto ensure clean drinking water
for the city and finish getting
drainage systems in Archer
worked out
SThoughts: "Having served
on the commission for that
period of time automatically
gives me the experience needed
to run in the upcoming election,"
Lopez said. "Because of my
investment in the city on the
gym project, I don't really feel
like I ever left the commission,
because I've been working very
closely with them. I feel like I
am qualified because I attend
all meetings; not some but all.
I feel like I am well aware,
and I know exactly what's
going on in the city of Archer.
There is a difference in reading
the minutes to a meeting and
actually attending."

Alachua makeover


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Downtown
Alachua may soon be receiving
a makeover with improved
lighting, increased parking,
sidewalks and a traffic'circle.
Although the plans are not
complete, city officials are
looking to revamp N.W. 142nd
Terrace and N.W. 150th Avenue
beginning in early 2009, said
Darryl Tompkins, chair of the
Downtown Redevelopment
Trust Board (DRB).
The DRB has been
budgeted $1.5 million this year
for the project, which is meant
to establish interconnectivity
between City Hall and Main St.
The current plans include a


traffic circle at the intersection
of N.W. 142nd Terrace and
N.W. 150th Ave. with brick
crosswalks surrounding it.
City officials are also
looking to create diagonal
parking on N.W. 150thl near
the tennis courts and on N.W.
142nd near the Lions Club.
In addition to the parking
and.. street circle, the DRB
plans to place new street lights,
sidewalks and landscaping in the
area to make it more walkable
and safe, Tompkins said.
City Manager Clovis Watson
Jr. said the project is likely to be
split into two phases, starting
with N.W. 150th Avenue from
State Road 235 to Main Street,
Because that section is in more
critical need of improvements.


"We certainly 'eleve Lthat
all of the L,'.1i. idknlified in this
project will I '. bnefcital to our
downtown aten,'" Watson said.
"However, cci' :., ,:u':ents are
critical'and ,. .i,,,r: completion
now. Other ailments can be
addressed at a later date when
additional funding is available
to complete the1n'
Mike Nev, ,public works
director, said certain features of
the project, such as the- traffic
circle, will require residents
to give right of way to the
city, J i'.!: n'.y : use some
controversy.
"It is critical that the public
understand i';: S is not city
policy to enu :. ,:: ,!; private
property witi I, cities,"
New said. 'Some: of the


proposed design components
may require additional right
of way to facilitate them. This
requires property owners that.
realize the benefits of the project
to willingly permit right of way
acquisition where necessary."
Watson said city officials
will be seeking public input on,
the projects in the near future to
make sure the projects are in the
best interest of area residents.
"I .am confident that our
residents will be well pleased
with the final project work scope
and the construction phasing,"
Watson said. "The project will
be a legacy project, one that our
residents are proud of for years
to come."

to undecided


Editorial by Tracey McManus


One of the biggest criticisms of the second presidential
debate was that both candidates left people suffocated
with redundant information, and hungry for answers about
America's downward spiraling state. Just minutes after the
debate, analysts were comparing the obscurities of Senator
Barack Obama and Senator John McCain and predicted
the struggles both candidates will have in winning over
undecided voters. Saturday Night Live created a skit that
mocked the candidates' vague answers to broad questions
almost as dead on as their other controversial
parody of Sarah Palin's show of oblivion in
her interview with Katie Couric. It's getting a
little ridiculous when a sketch comedy show'
can cut back on script writing because the
politicians are producing material with their
own, stumbling words instead.
I can say all this lightheartedly because I
have already been convinced of who will lead
our country out of its recession, end the war
in Iraq by refocusing on the real threats of the
Middle East and make America a model to McManus
stop global warming by initiating alternative
fuels. I am also aware that the other candidate,
as proven by tax experts at the Urban Institute and Brookings
Institution, will not only widen the deficit by giving the
grossly wealthy tax breaks while the middle class barely
gets thrown a bone, but is also more interested in a promise
to claim "victory" in Iraq, that even Gen. Petraeus has said
is an unrealistic mindset, than committing to a reconcile
with Middle East leaders.:
This faulted maverick is none other than John McCain,
but I don't want to be negative and focus on why it would
be devastating to our country if he were president. But
speaking of negative, 73-percent of McCain's television ads
have been negative which seem to be backfiring as polls
have shown a sharp decline in positive feelings towards the

voters


Republican ticket.
Instead, focus on why Barack Obama's diverse appeal is
more than necessary to unite people inside our country and
abroad. Focus on the absurdities of people who constantly
raise questions about Obama's experience. If you want to
look at years, Obama is more qualified than Hilary Clinton
who was never criticized for a lack of experience. Obama
has 10 years of experience in public office; two of those.are
in the U.S. senate where he is a leader in ethics reform and a
member of three of the four senate committees
of foreign relations where he is the Chair of the
Foreign Relations Subcommittee on European
relations. He is criticized for not supporting
offshore drilling, but what his challengers don't
tell you is that by drilling now, the benefits from
that oil would not be seen until 2030 and will
stagnate the progression for alternative fuels
to stop :global warming. Understand Obama
will jumpstart the economy by focusing on the
middle class Americans and job creation which
is exactly how economic stimuli have been
created historically.
With only two weeks until Election Day,
supporters can hear criticisms of Barack Obama and see
through the weak attempts to bring him down. It is the
undecided voter who I worry about because if you haven't
decided on a candidate by now, you are most likely to vote
on a whim based on frivolous gossip in the media.
SElecting Barack Obama as president of the United
States would be a historic revolution. It would break the
cycle of corruption in Washington and bring in a new type
of politics based on change and regulation. So, if you are
an undecided voter and can be influenced by a last minute
wave of inspiration, let this be it and vote for change on
Nov. 4.

Support for Eppenstein
When my wife and I moved to
High Springs over two years ago and
invested in the community by buying
the Grady House, we \were happy to join
the community and its wonderful past,
but more importantly we looked forward
to helping shape its future. As part of
that vision of the future, we urge the
citizens of High Springs to reelect Kirk
Eppenstein,as City Commissioner for
the City ofH-igh Springs.
It is our opinion that an effective
City Commissioner requires essentially
three things a level of intelligence
sufficient to understand the complexities
,of governing even a small citvyin the
21ls Century, an intricate knowledge
of the City's past and current problems
so as to be able to bring information to
bear on future decisions, and a caring
and concerned involvement inthe City's
work so as to demonstrate commitment
to that future. Kirk Eppenstein is
unparalleled in his possession of these
three attributes.
Anyone who has attended the many
Commission meetings, CRA meetings,
Main Street meetings and other meetings
in High Springs over the last years has
seen that Kirk Eppenstein is devoted
in his attendance at a wide variety of
meetings affecting our community, and
a participant who demonstrates a high
level of intelligence sufficient to move
beyond simplistic arguments and delve
into the nuances of complex' issues
and situations. At least as important
as his basic intelligence is his factual
knowledge of the inner workings of
High Springs' city government and its
relationship to surrounding governments,
which one cannot pick up or appreciate
*by merely sitting on the sidelines.
Kirk's knowledge of High Springs has
been acquired by rolling up his sleeves,
getting in the game and working on the
field.
Finally, as a long-term resident
of High Springs, Kirk has used his
intelligence, applied his knowledge,
and worked tirelessly, actively, and
consistently to get things done, and
not simply to talk about how he thinks
things should be done. While having
good ideas is a valuable commodity in
a City Commissioner, when those good
ideas are expressed by a person with
a detailed familiarity) with the past, a
participation in that past as well as the
present, and a vision for the future, \e
have a candidate that Lucie and I are
proud to support for his reelection to the
City Commission for the City of High
Springs Kirk Eppenstein.

Support for Shupe
Were writingtoaddourendorsement
of Diane Shupe for High Springs City
Commission to the many who have
already endorsed her. Born and raised


here in High Springs, Diane has a respect
for the local heritage that is sometimes
hard for an outsider to understand, but
critical to maintaining the "good things"
* that have attracted many to our town.
. Diane has an easygoing, kind manner:
that reflects a Southern rural upbringing.
Her mother resides in High Springs,
as does her daughter and her family.,
Diane truly cares about High Springs
aind the welfare of her neighbors. I do
-not believe there is a self-serving bone
in Diane's body. For many of us, this
alone is reason enough to want Diane on
the City Commission:
SHowever, Diane brings much more
to thehtable. She is eminently qualified
to help lead High Springs through the
economic challenges we face. An
honors graduate from the University of
- Florida School of Accounting, she has
been a CPA since 1985. -Her career has
focused on governmental accounting.
She worked for Mr. BuddyIrby, Alachua
County Clerk, for 19 years. She has
implemented accounting systems, been
responsible for the coordination of
external auditsand compiled the Count) 's
financial statements. From 2001 to 2006
Diane worked tbr PurvisGray CPAs as a
governmental auditor, auditing cities and
counties throughout Florida. She has
now returned to Alachua County Clerk's
office as Assistant Internal Auditor. The
opportunity to have someone with such
an education and background on our
City Conunission is extraordinary.
Last \ear we \Trote to endorse
Bill Coughlin for High Springs City
Commission. He promised to try to put
a stop, or at least slow the irresponsible
spending that was going on in City Hall.
For a year he has stood alone against the
other Commissioners. the City Manager,
and e\en the local newspaper. following
through on his promises. Now w\e ha\e
an opportunity to get Bill some help. The
addition of Diane Shupe will bring more
fiscal responsibility to the Commission.
The election of Mr. Cough]in
should have sent a message to the other
Commissioners and City Manager The
taxpaying citizens of High Springs
were fed up with the irresponsible
tax and spend policies of the existing
Commissioners. Instead of responding
to the mandate of the people, they chose
to fight Mi. Coughlin on every budget
cutting recommeind:ition he made. They
would have raised our property taxes had
Bill not stuck to Ins gins. We voted tor
both Mr. Eppenstein and Mr. Travis. We'
regret that now, and know many others
feel the same way. Had we known they)
would purchase a house, and refuse a property tax decreaseip
mandated by the Governor, we would
not have voted for them. Bill Coughlin
w as our first opportunity to correct our
mistakes. Diane Shupe offers a second.
Please elect her to the High Springs City
Commission.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2008 A7


FUNK:
Continuedfrom pageAl Silver Alert notifies drivers on major
roads of missing senior citizens


response was a tool in the
investigation and a necessary
method to locate missing
seniors.
"How can we in North
Central Florida get the message
out to the media and drivers
about a missing person?" Chief
Troiano asked. "The Silver
Alert takes the information and
broadcasts it on the Department
of Transportation's message
boards on roads across the
state."
The Silver Alert program
was launched Oct. 8 by the
executive order of Governor
Charlie Christ and allows law
enforcement to issue media
alerts, phone notifications and
messages on signboards on


major roads statewide about
missing senior citizens.
The Silver Alert, a program
similar to the Amber Alert
system that sends notifications
to locate missing children, was
issued Monday for Funk and
was circulated throughout the
entire state making it the first
alert in North Central Florida
since the program's enactment.
According to Troiano, Funk
met the criteria for the Silver
Alert which requires the missing
person to be over 60 years old,
to have a valid Florida license
tag and suffer from dementia or
Alzheimer's disease.
"We contacted local media
and entered his information into
state databases," Troiano said.


"This is common to happen
to people with dementia, and
although he did call his wife,
the Silver Alert was a tool in the
search."
Funk was not injured and did
not require medical attention,
but was unaware of how he got
to the South Carolina hotel.,
According to the Florida
DepartmentofLawEnforcement,
Funk is the first senior citizen to
utilize the Silver Alert in North
Florida but the fifth person
statewide. Since the enactment
on Oct. 8, the alert has been used
in Palm Beach County, Pinellas
County, Charlotte County and
Polk County.

WASTE Fit te increEEince 2005
Continued'from page A1 First rate increase since 2005


approved, and the increase will
be passed on to the city's 3,159
utility customers.
Alachua residents may see
their rates rise again in July
2009 and January 2010.
Non Turkey Creek residents
will see utility rates rise to $22
in July-and $23.15 in January
2010.
Turkey Creek residents will
see rates rise to $22.72 in July
and $23.87 in January 2010.
Starting in 2011, Waste Pro
will also have the option to
charge 5-percent more for fuel
adjustment costs.
This increase will mark the
first time since 2005 that the
city has raised waste collection
rates.


Mayor .Jean Calderwood
said she was thankful to Waste
Pro for absorbing some of the
costs that have arisen over the
past few years.
"Not to have had a rate
increase since 2005 is indicative
of the customer service and of
the company wanting to work
with us," Calderwood said.
Fred Wood, Waste Pro senior
vice president, said he was
impressed by the negotiating
skills of City Manager Clovis
Watson Jr. and Assistant City
Manager Danielle Judd..
"I think I'm a pretty good
negotiator," said Wood said,'


"but I think I'm still learning
something here. I don't think I
came out with quite as much as
[the city] did. I think [the city]
came out very well"
SWatson said the rate increase
is difficult to pass on to Alachua
residents, but it must be done.
"It's always difficult when


we have to look at ways to
increase any rates in the city of
Alachua," Watson said, "but the
cost of everything is going up,
and this is one of those necessary
.evils."


Stay informed

A look at amendments on the November ballot


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
In the weeks leading up to
*the Nov. 4 election, Alachua
County Today is providing
reviews of the six amendments
proposed for the Florida
Constitution.
Amendment 4: "Requires
Legislature to provide property
tax exemption for real property
encumbered by perpetual
conservation easements or
other perpetual conservation
protections, defined by general
law: Requires Legislature to
provide for classification and
assessment of land used for
conservation purposes, and not
perpetually encumbered, solely
on the basis of character or use.
Subjects assessment benefit
to conditions, limitations,
and reasonable definitions
established by general law.
Applies to property taxes
beginning in 2010."


This amendment would
provide tax breaks for
land owners who agree
to permanently preserve
environmentally sensitive land.
Proponents ofAmendment 4
claim the change may encourage
further land conservation.
This amendment will
also allow the government to
preserve land without outright
buying it, which can be more
expensive.
Opponentsoftheamendment


argue that the existing policies
already favor land owners who
preserve their land.
Another downfall of the
amendment is that it would
not require public access to the
lands receiving tax breaks.
Local revenue may also
decrease with Amendment
4, because gdverments will
not receive the property taxes
normally charged to the land
owners.

city didn't use its ability to annex,
it could lose some of the lands it

Eppenstein concurred with
Travis' comments and added that
the BAA prevents land grabs where
one municipality envelopes another
by annexing the land around it.
Eppenstein also said the city had,

were never considered because no

that the city should not carelessly

The Church is for the Glory of God


In the Epistle of I Corinthians 12: f.f.,
Saint Paul is explaining to the Church in
Corinth about the spiritual gifts God has
bestowed upon Christians. In fulfillment
of prophecy, written about in the Book
of Joel, the early Church was given
supernatural gifts.
"And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my Spirit upon all
flesh; and your sons and your daughters
shall prophesy, your old men shall dream
dreams, your young men shall see visions"
(Joel 228).
Even more remarkable was what
Christ said, "These signs shall follow
then that believe; In my Name shall they
cast out devils; they shall speak with new
tongues; they shall take up serpents; and
if they drink any deadly thing, it shall
not hurt them; they shall lay hands on
the sick, and they shall recover" (Mark
16:17, 18).
In I Corinthians 12:1 f.f., there's a
list of some of these gifts-the "word of
wisdom," which is the further discovery


of Divine wisdom in
redemption; "word of
knowledge," the expression
of truth already revealed;
"Faith," not for salvation,
but for performing miracles
in special cases; "Gifts of
healing," for the-miraculous
healing of the .sick;
"Working of miracles,"
either generally, or in a more
striking way; "Prophecy,"
probably the foretelling.
of events; "Discerning of.
spirits," is the power to
distinguish between God's
operation and Satan's or
man's; "Kinds of tongues,"
the ability to speak various
languages; "Interpretation
of tongues," the interpreting
of those languages.


THE VEN..
LEASI
All Saints A
Church, Ga
A parish
Christian E
Chur


There are many spiritual gifts in the
Church today, and each is marked with
Divine wisdom. The big mission of the


Church is to carry the gospel
of the grace of God to all.
SThese special gifts prepare
Christians for this work.
Ultimately, the Church
is for the glory of God, and
all.gifts should be credited to
the Divine honor and glory.
These God-given gifts must
be used with reverence, care
and diligence. God-given
gifts also must be accounted
for. They are talents, and
JOHN E. the time is growing short for
JRE these gifts to be used as the
Anglican reckoning day will surely
inesville. come. Don't think that any
of the of us doesn't have some God-
piscopal given gift. "To every man
ch his work;" and never yet was
work given without a gift to
accomplish the work.
The choice of our spiritual gifts rests
with God, and we are to use what we
have been given correctly. To. compare


gifts and mutter about what we have been
given, questions the wisdom andgoodness
of God. We are servants, and the Great
Spirit "divideth to every man severally as
he will. Let us take our talents thankfully
and use them diligently.
We were once like the Corinthians,
who were carried away unto "dumb
idols." But, we have been brought into
the Church of the Redeemed, and made
the worshippers and servants of the one
true God. We have nothing to murmur
about, but everything to be devoutly
thankful for.
The gifts we receive are tested by
their relation to Christ. False gifts may
appear, or good gifts may be perverted., In
the early days the test of utterance was,
"What saith it of Christ?" Did it declare
him to be anathema accursed? Then it
declared itself to be not of God.
"By their fruits ye shall know them."
Unless gifts lend themselves, to the
exaltation and honor of Christ, they aren't
genuine. If they are genuine, they are
W


under the control and administration of
the Holy'Ghost, who will never abase or
dishonor Him. The supreme goal of our
spiritual gifts is "that He (Christ) may be
glorified."
"Diversities,... but the same Spirit,...
the same Lord,... the same God". (I
Corinthians 4-6). The control and exercise
of spiritual gifts are of the "Triune God."
Spiritual gifts rightly used are God
working through us; we are channels for
Divine power. '"No man can say that
Jesus is the Lord, but by [or, 'in'] the Holy
Ghost, "
We may use the words, but we cannot
feel their power, receive their truth, or bear
the effective witness to Christ, apart from
the Divine Spirit. We must be careful not
to resist the working of God through us!
Remember that he uses the smaller gifts
as well as the larger, sometimes using the
smaller gifts more. Dazzling gifts are not
always the most useful.

Chapter Ei-ght by Ke
The rain stopped lust as Scotty finished his library books.
He opened the window by his bed. A light breeze passed
through the opening. The night smelled fresh and dear. He
could see the moon behind some thin clouds. Looking at the
oon, Scotty thought about President Truman.
The books said President Truman had been a soldier and
had led a group of men. But, as President, he was the
Commanderin Chief. That made him the leader of every
American soldier and sailor.
When Mr. Truman became President, a war was raging.
:* Thousands of soldiers had been killed, and many people had
died where fighting took place. All this worried President
S Truman. He finally decided the only way to prevent more
deaths was to defeat the enemy quickly. That meant using
a new weapon an atomic bomb.
Another big decision President Truman made was to end
, segregation in the military Until this was done, black soldiers
were not allowed to serve with white soldiers.
Ending segregation in the military was just part of Mr.
Truman's plan to end segregation everywhere. In America,
blacks were second-class citizens. They could sit only in the
balcony at movie theaters. They had to ride in the back of
buses and trains. They went to all-black schools, and were
not allowed to play on professional sports teams.
But President Truman knew that black people could do
anything that white people could. Since Mr. Truman believed
that the buck stopped with the President, it was his lob to
make things right.
Scotty thought about his friend Jimmy, who was black. Jimmy
could do anything. Sometimes he could do things better than
anyone else like hitting a baseball.
Again, Scotty looked out into the night. President Truman did
many good things. Scorty was glad that he had been assigned
to write about him.
The next morning, Scotty gathered up all his books and filled
his backpack. He was eager to get to school and to start
S v writing his paper. He had decided what he would write about,
and he had chosen a dtie for his research paper. After break
i fast, Scotty put on his backpack. Funny, he thought, it didn't
seem as heavy as it was when he brought It home on Friday.
d~ Sco:tty opened the door to his mother's office to say good-bye.


A 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 arid racial equality. Scott takes from
the lesson a new appreciation for the top job in America and the
realization that even he could someday be president of the United
States.












ay H/ve/Y
Mrs. Brown asked if he was ready to write his paper. Scotry
smiled, nodded his head and said he was going to call his
research paper, "The President Who Looks Like Me."
As Scotry hurried down the alley toward school, he was
happy. He couldn't wait to start writing his paper. And, using
his mother's computer, he planned to include a picture of
President Truman. In tact, Scotry thought the picture of
President Truman when he was 12 years old would look
really good on the cover sheet of his research paper.

A message from the sponsor: Parents interested in teaching
their kids about finances will find an array of financial literacy
resources available at www.sunstatefcO.org. SunState Federal
Credit Union has financial literacy modules and more for
children of all ages and adults too. Many of the tools for children


are fun to work with and include games, puzzles, and more.
SunState Federal Credit Union strongly supports literacy both
in the classroom and at home, and we encourage parents to start
teaching their children early about the importance of financial
responsibility.
