Robber at large


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -As
of yesterday, police don't
have any new leads on the
man who robbed a High
Springs drugstore Saturday
evening.
A clerk at the CVS
at 110 NW Santa Fe
Boulevard called 911
around 5:30 p.m. to report
the robbery.
According to the High
Springs Police Department


(HSPD), a man had
approached the. counter
after walking around the
store for several minutes,
and he paid for a small
candy item. Then he
handed the clerk a note
saying not to scream and
that he had a gun.
The robber demanded
cash from the register
drawer and then ran from
the store after pocketing
an undisclosed amount of

HIGH SPRINGS- In
2008, Dallas Cowboys
owner Jerry Jones spent
upward of $1.3 billion to
build a new stadium for
his NFL team. Meanwhile,
the United States military
struggled to provide
soldiers fighting in the
Middle *East with the
supplies and equipment
they needed to survive.
Two years later,
football stars are still
being worshipped while
American soldiers remain
out of sight and out of
mind.
The Event
Bob Barnas wanted to
change that, so with the
help of the Marine Corps
League of Gainesville, he
organized a Veterans Day
event that took place last
Thursday in High Springs,
the city where he lives.
."It wasn't as big as I
would've liked," he said,
referring to the turnout,
which he estimated was
about 200 people.
But nonetheless he was
pleased.

Hawthorne budget


crisis still not fixed
Hawthorne citizens demand a solution


By BEA DIEHL

HAWTHORNE
Hawthorne's budget
remained a contentious

issue
Thursday tty
when the city
held a special wo
meeting to VWO
discuss how
to resolve an SOm
imbalance in ha
revenues and thai
expenditures.

Commission

amounting
for up to a Lo
third of the Hawthorne


.budget have
since been
discovered.
Commissioners Deloris
Roberts and William
Carlton both voted against
the budget. But by the Nov.
11 special meeting, many
more people had stepped
forward to call into question
the integrity of the adopted
budget.'
Assuring citizens that
he wasn't done reviewing
the finances of the city,
Commissioner Matthew
Surrency went line by
line through the budget
Thursday night.
"I'm not saying we're
adopting this [the budget],
we're here tonight to ask
questions," Surrency said.
Changes were made
across the board, most
notably to reduce and
account for the $329,000
blunder in which funds
from utilities were shown


as transfers into several
departments but never
taken out of the utility
departments.
But even after the
lengthy

deficit of$109,691.
Commissioners all
agreed that until the issues
with the revised budget
were resolved, they did not
want to pass it.
While discussions
ensued about how money
was being spent in several
areas of the budget,
concerns seemed to be
focused on the Parks and
Recreation department.
Surrency pointed out that
the budgeted expenditure
on utilities for Parks and

overestimated, putting at

L-R: Adam Boukari and Jim Yakubsin lay bricks as part of the
more than 100 engraved bricks being placed around a veterans
memorial at Alachua City Hall recently.
The four by eight inch laser-engraved red brick pavers are
part of a fundraiser to help fund the cost of a building for Gator

colored bricks are being placed in honor of veterans from
Alachua County who made the ultimate sacrifice in Operation
Iraqi Freedom.
With some 4,000 available brick spaces in front of City Hall,
more than 100 have already been reserved and placed.
Memorial bricks can be purchased through the Marine Corps
League's Gator Detachment at a cost of $110. Each brick
comes with a miniature replica for keepsake.
Anyone wishing to honor or memorialize a veteran through
the brick paver program may do so by visiting the Gator

From 11 a.m. to 5'p.m.
on Saturday and 11 a.m.
to 4 p.m. on Sunday, over
150 pets, including dogs,
cats, pot bellied pigs, and
rabbits, will be available
for adoption to permanent
homes. Historically
achieving well over 100
adoptions in just two days,
this event opens up space
for the participating rescue
groups to save more lives
and end needless euthanasia
in our community.
Tents will be set up
to house animals from
Helping Hands Pet Rescue,
Puppy Hill Farm, Second
Chance Farms, Haile's
Angels, Rooterville,
Phoenix Animal Rescue,
Gainesville Rabbit Rescue,
and Alachua County
Animal Services. Pets have
been spayed or neutered,
vaccinated, and are up-to-
date on any medications.
"The kindest thing you
can do this season is open
your heart and home to
a shelter pet because all
animals deserve a home
for the holidays. This year
we hope to have record
adoptions having more
shelters participating than
ever with dogs, cats, rabbits,
and pot bellied pigs. You
can help end the euthanasia
of companion animals,"
says Shaye Olmstead of
Helping Hands Pet Rescue.
Proceeds from the
event will go toward
the continued rescue of
adoptable animals. This
event gives families the
opportunity to save lives
and open their homes to
pets that would other-wise
spend their holidays in a
shelter.
For more information,
contact Helping Hands Pet
Rescue at 352-281-4358.

A celebration of the partnership
between cities and farms
Alachua County Farm Bureau is pleased to
recognize Nov. 19-26 as Farm-City Week.
On the seven days leading to and including
Thanksgiving Day, Farm-City Week is celebrated
nationwide. What are we celebrating? The vital
farm-city relationships that contribute so much to
our health and well-being. Here in Alachua County,
there are 1,400 farms on 220,000 acres. .
Neither the farm nor the city can exist in isolation.
Instead, the interdependence of the two creates
jobs, products, markets and relationships that
help make our economy and nation strong.
Join with us next week in recognizing
Alachua County agricultural producers and
allied industries and the contributions they make
to the local, state and national economy.

Hawthorne commission



tackles nature conservancy


By BEA DIEHL
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE
- A plan that would
add over 1,100 acres
of conservation land
to Hawthorne may be
delayed due to budgetary
concerns.
The Locchec
Management Plan, which
would provide Hawthorne
with 1,142 acres of land as
a nature conservancy and
park was discussed at the
city commission meeting
Tuesday evening.
The plan would
give ownership of the
lahd to both the City
of Hawthorne and


the Putnam Land
Conservancy, providing
nature trails, picnic
areas and wildlife and
pedestrian crossings
throughout the city and
surrounding areas.
A full acceptance of
the plan has been put off
for several years because
some city cotnmissioners
are worried about costs.
"If you look at. the
grant contract, all the
places it says 'city shall'
and 'city will,' and I don't
think we have the staff
or resources to do that,"
Commissioner Harry
Carter said.
City Manager. Ed
Smyth agreed, citing the


costs the plan would incur
in the first two to three
years, just to survey and
provide an ecological
report on the land.
Proponents of the plan
argued that the cost to the
city would be nothing to
negligible. They also said
that the city has already
lost approximately
$100,000 to $150,000
in grants by delaying
acceptance of the plan.
"This is a gem,"
Putnam Land
Conservancy member
Michael Stallings said.
Smyth agreed, but
was still worried about
costs.
"To get that jewel


polished so it's usable,
it's going to take massive
amounts of money we do
not have, nor will have in
the foreseeable future,"
Smyth said.
Rather than take action
on the plan Tuesday,
the commission opted
to conduct a workshop
and special meeting to
review and amend the
plan, if necessary. Both
meetings are scheduled
for Monday, Nov. 22. The
workshop will be held at
4:30 p.m., and the special
meeting will be held at
6:30 p.m.

Inside a hospice care center

The comforts of home


By JENNI WILLIAMS
Communications Coordinator
Haven Hospice
Special to
Alachua Couhty Today
An, inpatient hospice
care center offers all the
comforts of home, as well
as the compassion and care
that patients and families
need during an especially
challenging time. While
most hospice patients prefer
to be at home, a care center
provides "a home away
from home" when patients
require more intensive
symptom, management
and 'pain relief than they
can receive at home or in
a hospital. It's also a place
where a caregiver who
needs a break can trust that
a loved one will be in good
hands.
.At Haven Hospice's
care centers, you'll find
beautiful indoor and
outdoor spaces such as
sunrooms and courtyards;
cozy patient rooms;


chapels for reflection; and
playrooms to keep children
occupied. The families
Haven serves tell us how
much these care centers
mean to them. One family
member wrote, "You have
the most beautiful and
peaceful surroundings any
family would want for
their loved one." A young
woman who was a child
when her grandfather died
in Haven's care wrote: "The
playroom became the place
I ran to when my feelings
became too much for me. I
am so grateful for that."
Inpatient hospice
care centers are actually
rare both in Florida and
nationwide. Only about 300
of the 4,600 U.S. hospice
organizations operate
freestanding hospice
Sinpatient care centers.
Haven's four hospice
care centers, have been
nationally recognized, and
they're strategically located
throughout the state to be
as accessible as possible.
In Florida, care centers


can only be built when
the Florida Agency for
Health Care Admninistration
(AHCA) has approved
them. Last month, ACHA
granted Haven Hospice a
Certificate of Need to break
ground on an 18-bed care
center in the Clay County
area. Hundreds of people
throughout the community
wrote letters of support for
the project, knowing what
a difference a hospice care
center can make for their
family at the end of life.

Citizens were also worried
that some numbers were only
estimates without any rationale
or basis.
"There are no absolutes
when it comes to revenue like
this," City Manager Ed Smyth
said.
Several citizens in
attendance vocalized their
concerns, not only about the
mistakes in the budget, but also
because no copies of the latest
proposed budget had been
provided. There was also no
copy of the budget online. Only
after residents complained at
the meeting were copies of the
budget provided.
Other citizens said
they were shocked at the
mismanagement of the budget.
"This makes us look like
idiots," Cheryl Elmore said.
Other residents at the
meeting even called for the
resignation of the city manager.

families here have enjoyed
monthly visits on the
patio with Candy Mae the
mule and occasional visits
from miniature horses
and a goat. The staff has
honored our patients who
are veterans with visits
from Rolling Thunder, a
veterans' advocacy group.
The care center's cook and
her fellow staff members
love to help families
celebrate special occasions.
They recently prepared a
"champagne" dinner for
a couple celebrating their
73rd wedding anniversary.
"At Haven, we believe
that everyone deserves
compassion, care and
comfort, especially during
life's final journey," said
Haven Hospice President
Tim Bowen. "It's an
honor and .a privilege to
offer inpatient care centers
to enhance the care we
provide."


"You would fire someone
that put out a piece of paper
like this, wouldn't you?" Lois
Snowden, a concerned resident
demanded. "It just doesn't
make sense that [the city
manager is] getting away with
this."
Ray Daniel, the man who
first caught the budgeting
errors, said he agreed. Daniel
said the commission needs to
find another city manager who
can solve these issues if the
current manager cannot.
The meeting, which
began at 6 p.m., lasted until
shortly afterl0 p.m. as each
commissioner sought answers
for their questions surrounding
the budget.
"The truth needs to be
told on all these matters,"
Commissioner Roberts said.

The perfect handbag


There. is no fashion accessory
that is more important than a
woman's handbag.
Once upon a time, women
didn't carry a handbag at all. That's
because she never went anywhere.
If you happened to be a woman
married to a wealthy man, and your
life revolved around


soirees and .the
opera, you would
carri.Atxeticule.
A reticule was.
a tiny bag, just big
enough to carry
your smelling salts..
Every woman
needed to carry
smelling salts just in
case her lady's maid
tied her corset too
tight. This was not


Some women like to
compartmentalize their stuff, money
in .one compartment, makeup in
another, spare diaper and baby
wipes in another.
I have a poor memory that
doesn't seem to be getting better no
matter how many crosswordpuzzles
I do. Just yesterday, I
S asked a friend how her
Sson's arm was doing, only
realizing, after it was too
late, that it wasn't her son
who had broken his arm.
It was my other friend's
son, who was also sitting
with us. It's a little too
much to ask.of crossword
puzzles to fix that kind of
memory.


.Laura Snyder So, yeah, I would
never remember which


usually a problem
unless she ate more than one petit
fours and swooned into the punch
bowl.
Life has changed a bit since then.
My lady's maid wouldn't dream of
tying my corset too.tight...
Okay, it's changed a lot. I'm
not sure there is a single woman
out there that carries smelling salts
in their purse... but we've got
everything else in there.
Picking out a handbag is difficult
to do. A woman could spend
months looking for just the right
one. We have our criteria and order
of importance for those criteria.


purse compartment held
what, and I'd have to unzip each one
until I found the one I needed. The
handbag that would work best for
me is the one that looks like a short
.Hefty bag. There might be a couple
of slots on the inside for thing you
need to find quickly, like BandAids
and insurance cards.
One characteristic of the perfect
handbag for me (and they do have
character!) is a slot on the outside
for my cell phone. When you know
it's only going to ring three times
before it goes to voicemail, there is
nothing more infuriating than trying
to find your cell phone in a black
hole.


My handbag also must have a
zipper closure, not a button. What
is the point in buttoning it if, after
you slam on the brakes to avoid a
kindergartener in the drop-off zone,
your handbag falls off the passenger
seat and distributes its contents all
over the car mat? Trust me, a zipper
is better... if you remember to close
it.
To me, color is least important,
but I will choose a neutral color if
I have an option. I do not have a
purse for every pair of shoes. My
closet is not that big. Neither is
my ego. I don't care if everything
matches. Really. If there is no toilet
paper attached to my waistband,
I consider myself put together...
and blessed. I set the bar rather
low years ago; about the time that
spit-up rags on my shoulder were
considered the least of my fashion
transgressions.
I'm looking for functionality
over aesthetics in my handbag. If
I happen to find both in the same
handbag, it's like finding the Holy
Grail..

Hawthorne grapples with parks and recreation


Volunteers locked out


By BEA DIEHL
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE
Recreation was center stage
at Hawthorne's commission
meeting Tuesday as parents,
volunteers and residents
packed the chambers at
City Hall to take issue with
City Manager Ed Smyth's
treatment of volunteers
during the weekend of Nov.
6.
In preparation for
a county-wide soccer
tournament to be held in
Hawthorne, volunteers of
Hawthorne Youth Sports
(HYS) painted lines and
performed maintenance on
the city's recreation fields.
As sunlight began fading,
volunteers reportedly called
City Manager Ed Smyth
to have the lights turned
on at the fields. But after
several calls to Smyth, the
volunteers say they were
told the lights could not be
turned on due to financial
reasons.
Heather Surrency, a
member of HYS, reportedly


went to City Hall to retrieve
keys to the lights, but
Smyth took them from
her. Volunteers claim that
Smyth told them the soccer
tournament may have to be
cancelled if the work on the
fields was not finished.
Eventually, someone
cut the locks although the
identity of that person was
not revealed. The soccer
tournament went on as
planned.
During the meeting,
residents asked Smyth
why the lights could not
be turned on, and several
residents addressed the
commission asking for
more cooperation.
"I implore you to do
everything in your power
to make it easier for
volunteers," said Cheryl
Elmore.
In response, the
commission unanimously
voted not to take any action
against the individual who
cut the locks, and agreed
to meet later to work on a
contract with HYS.
Heather Surrency


provided a presentation
outlining the benefits of
HYS and volunteers in
general. She said that
volunteers believed there
was a mutual understanding
that HYS would manage
programming while the city
maintained the grounds.
"The city manager
wants us to pay to
volunteer," Surrency
said. "He wants to charge
volunteers to pay for the
use of the fields."
Commissioner Matthew
Surrency said he wanted the
city to officially recognize
HYS as the programmer for
youth sports and eventually
get a written agreement
with the group.
Surrency suggested
that Parks and Recreation
Manager Samuel Wynkoop
be dn the HYS board, but
focused on aspects other
than programming.
"We need to stretch our
abilities," he said.
Heather I Surrency
estimated that the city
saved about $22,000 per
year by utilizing the HYS.


She was also concerned
that both HYS and the city
scheduled a basketball
league, potentially dividing
the city. But not everyone
agreed with Surrency and
HYS.
Wayne Thomas, a
member of the Parks and
Recreation advisory board,
advocated for the city
manager. He expressed
concerns over HYS and
inclusion of a cross-
section of the community,
mentioning that no African-
Americans were on the
HYS board.
"The main issue
we're having tonight
is communication and
inclusion," Thomas said.
Hal Brady, Alachua
Recreation Director, came
to the meeting to stress the
importance of volunteers
within the parks and
recreation department.
He was impressed by the
amount of support the
department was receiving.
"For a very small town,
you have a great group,"
Brady said.


Vehicle repossession know the law


Special to
Alachua County Today
When you finance or
lease a car, truck or other
vehicle, your creditor or
lessor holds important
rights on the vehicle until
you've made the last loan
payment or fully paid off
your leasing obligation.
These rights are established
by the signed contract and
by state law. For example,
if your payments are late or
you default on your contract
in any way, your creditor or
lessor may have the right to
repossess your car.
In many states,
including Florida, creditors
or lessors can do this
legally without going to
court or warning you in
advance, as long as they
do not breach the peace.
In addition, your creditor
or lessor may be able to
sell your contract to a third
party, called an assignee,
who may have the same
rights and responsibilities
as the original creditor or
lessor.
However, some state
laws, including Florida's,
limit the ways a creditor
or lessor can repossess and
sell a vehicle. If any rules
are violated, the creditor
or lessor may be required
to pay you, the consumer,
monetary damages.
After a vehicle is
repossessed, assuming it
is repossessed properly, a
creditor may dispose of the
vehicle in a "commercially
reasonable fashion," which
usually means at an auction
attended only by people
in the business of buying
cars cheap and then filing
suit against the consumer
for the difference between
what was owed on the car
and what the vehicle sold
for. In some cases, the
consumer could end up
owing almost as much as
he or she paid for the car
without having the car any
longer so consumers must
be extremely wary and not
allow such a situation to
occur.
Seizing the car
In many states,
including Florida, your
creditor or lessor has legal
authority to seize your
vehicle as soon as you
default on your loan or
lease, which could be a
matter of days or weeks.
Because state laws differ,
consumers must read their
contract to find out what
constitutes a default in
their specific situation. In
virtually all states, failure
to make a payment on time
or to meet other contractual
responsibilities, such as
not keeping insurance
in effect, are considered
defaults. Most vehicles


are repossessed when The material in this


payments are not made on
time and most often it is as
little as two payments.
If your creditor or lessor
has agreed to change your
payment date or any other
contractual obligations, it's
possible that the terms of
your original contract may
no longer apply. Such a
change may be made orally
or in writing. It's best to
get any changes in writing
because oral agreements
are difficult to prove.
If you default on your
loan, you must know that
the law in Florida allows
the creditor or lessor
to repossess your car.
Creditors or lessors hire
people who are allowed on
your property, by day or
at night, to seize your car
without letting you know
in advance. These people
are known as "repo guys."
Their job is to legally
'steal' your car away from
you. They usually do not
want you to know about it
because most people would
object or put up a fight and
. they don't want that to
happen, even though the
law may be on their side.
However, the law
usually doesn't allow
your creditor or lessor to
commit a breach of the
peace in connection with
repossession. Removing
a car from a closed garage
without permission usually
constitutes a breach of the
peace. Breaking into a
locked car does not; if the
car is, parked in a place
where any member of the
public could gain access to
it without breaking a lock or
committing a forcible entry
onto or into the property it
is usually permitted.
Creditors or lessors
who breach the peace in
seizing your car may be
required to compensate you
if they harm you or your
property. A consumer, who
stands in front of a car and
refuses to move, cannot be
physically forced to move.
If a repo guy runs over
a consumer's toe in the
process of repossessing a
car that is a breach of peace.
Threatening to do harm,
committing an assault,
committing a battery, or a
burglary or virtually any
crime in the process of
repossessing a vehicle is a
breach of the peace.
Therefore, while
creditors have the right
to repossess a vehicle
if a consumer fails to
make payments on time
or otherwise breaches a
contract for the purchase
of a vehicle, consumers
have rights, too. Know
your rights and your legal
responsibilities.

Q: Why do computer
games pose dental risk?
A: A study of young
gamers suggests that those
who spend substantial time
at the screen are more than
twice as likely to develop
tooth decay as youngsters
with more active lifestyles.
Though computer games
have long been identified as
contributing to childhood
obesity, keeping youngsters
from more active pursuits,
this study of youngsters
between the ages of 12 and
16.is the first to identify the
dental danger.
The study, carried out by
researchers at the University
of Iowa, found that teenagers
are more likely to snake on
sugary foods while absorbed


Many of the parents and

SAN FELASCO *
Continuedfrom pageAl1 San Felasco improvements encourage conservation
SANtnefo F aELASCO


destinations such as rivers, wetlands and
creeks.
The Alachua phase of the Corridor
connects to the San Felasco Hammock
Preserve State Park near Progress
Corporate Park in Alacbua via conservation
easements from the University of Florida
Foundation, Innovation Partners, Ltd.
and the Foundation for Environmental
Research. The recent enhancements to the
project site include a one-mile long nature
trail, concession/restroom facilities, scenic
pond overlook and parking improvements.
Financial support for the enhancements
came from the Florida Recreation
Development & Assistance Program, Wild
Spaces, Public places funds and the City of'
Alachua. The property was acquired by the
City in 2004 with funding from the Florida
Communities Trust program and the
conservation easements provide integral
connectivity to the San Felasco Hammock
Preserve State Park. The new amenities to
the site complement the existing baseball
field.
The opening ceremony was held on
site at J N "Preacher" Copeland Park
& Progress Corporate Park. The short
program included comments from Mayor
Gib Coerper, Assistant City Manager
Danielle J. Judd, and a guest speaker and
environmental consultant Dr. David W.
Hall.
"You are all friends of Alachua, friends
of conservation, friends of recreation," said


Coerper to a crowd of city
workers, conservationists
and residents..
"We have been secretly
conservative for a long
time."
The trail is
approximately a mile long,
allowing walkers to view
Legacy Live Oak, Longleaf
Flatwoods and a scenic
pond overlook.
Assistant City Manager
Judd played an important
role in the creation of the
trail.
"She walked the trail
before there was a trail,"
said Cain amidst laughs.
"She assured me they have
removed all the snakes."
The City will continue
improvements to the park
over the coming years
including the construction
of a playground, picnic
pavilion, interpretive
signage and trailhead
kiosk, among others
A citizen's support group will be used
for the maintenance of the trail, removing
exotic plants and leading walking tours.
Environmentalist Dr. David Hall cited
the open spaces as the most interesting
aspect of the trail. The spaces allow for


walkers to see plants grow and for nature
to occur from the ground up.
"I hope you enjoy the trail," Hall said.
"Even though you may be using it as a
respite from your normal lives, seeping
into your consciousness is education."
As Hall ended his short address,

HS ROBBERY:
Continued from page A I

Police say video surveillance could increase chance to catch suspect


money.
The gun he claimed to
have was never seen, and
no one was hurt.
HSPD described the
suspect as a white male in
his mid to late twenties.
The robbery was caught on
video by a CVS security


camera.
The robber is estimated
to be about 5'10 and
between 165 and 185 lbs.
He was wearing long jean
shorts, a dark-colored
Harry Potter T-shirt,
running shoes and a grey
Nike ball cap. He had a


mustache and goatee.
HSPD Chief Jim
Troiano said there were
other customers in the
store during the robbery
who served as witnesses.
Troiano said the video
is excellent and could
potentially help catch the


suspect.
The clerk did the right
thing, he said, by giving
the man the money and
then calling police. She
did exactly what law
enforcement teaches as the
proper response for most
cases.


Troiano asked
for anyone with any
information about the case
to please come forward.
They can contact the HSPD
at 386-454-1415, or remain
anonymous 'by calling
Crime Stoppers at 352-
372-7867 (STOP). Callers


are eligible to receive a
reward up to $1,000 for
information leading to an
arrest.

Overcome in the wilderness


One of the big problems
that Christians face is
trying to figure. out what
to do when prayers seem
to go unanswered. But
what we think of as an
unanswered prayer actually
is God talking to us in
a way we don't want to
hear. It's much like the
miscommunications we all
have in our lives, both at
work or at home. Anytime
you ask a question, looking
for a certain answer
but you hear something
you're not expecting,
there's a breakdown in
communication. Such
miscommunication
can cause pride, injury,
anger, disappointment, or
frustration and it isn't any
different in our relationship
with God. *
We're given a lesson
on this, in Saint Paul's first
letter to the Corinthians,
chapter 10 where we're
transported to the Exodus.
Here we see another
congregation, one that's
blessed with a cloud of
God that covered them
by day and a shield of fire


by night. These people
left everything behind;
they've left their past with
nothing but the sands of the
wilderness ahead of them.
Saint Paul tells us that these
people passed through the
sea by God's grace, and
were fed by spiritual meat
and drink during their
desert pilgrimage. But,
this generation perished in
the wilderness and never
inherited the promises of
God. He states that, "they
were overcome in the
wilderness."
The meaning of
"overcome" is vague. In
Greek, it literally means
.that their dead bodies
were spread out over
the wilderness. It's not
a pleasant word, but it
gives us a picture as to
what happened to that
congregation. Of course,
we don't want to find
ourselves in such a place,
spread out dead in the place
of our greatest need. That's
the great fear that many
people have in their lives;
"what if everything's taken
from me tomorrow and


ImH VtN. JUON E.
PLEASURE
All Saints Anglican
Church, Gainesville.
A parish of the
Christian Episcopal
Church
even God abandons me,
leaving me to die ,alone in
a desert?" The Epistle of
First Corinthians gives us
the answer to such doubts.
Notice first of all that
there's no promise here or
anywhere else in Scripture
that in this life God will
only lead us into pleasant
green pastures. There
isn't a saint listed in the
Old or New Testament
who walked with God and
was exempt from trials
and tribulations. In fact,
the most godly men and
women used for examples


in God's Word faced great
obstacles and remained
constant in their Faith.
However, while the
wilderness may for a time
be a Christian's home,
remember that it's not the
place of judgment. In fact,
the wilderness is usually
the place of salvation and
not condemnation.
We discover that the
wilderness or the place of
emptiness, the place of a
thousand questions and few
answers that make sense, is
the crucible that tests the
genuineness of our Faith in
*God. It's where we learn
a lot about ourselves and.
what we confess to believe.
God already knows us, but
do we know ourselves?
When God led His
people from bondage in
Egypt and they were tested,
they displayed their true
nature in the following
ways:
They lusted for more
than for God Himself,
the worst of all sins and
maybe the most common.
In the desert these people
revealed that their god was
their personal satisfaction,
and when they were
stripped of everything

except the presence of God
among them, they wanted
more. To have God and
nothing else is to have
everything necessary in
life.
They were Idolaters.
In their lust for more than
the presence of God they
actually began to substitute
false gods for the one true
God. They began to create
a god after their fallen
image, attempting to exalt
humanity by pulling God
down below themselves.
An idol is anything that's
placed at the center of your
life other than communion
with God.
They were fornicators.
This sin was shown by their
union with the ungodly, or
the heathen, for the sake
of convenience. Instead of
forging a lifelong bond with
their God who had saved
them, they quickly turned
to godless neighbors,


godless religions, godless
marriages, and unholy
unions, as a way to co-exisi
in the wilderness.
Finally, they tempted
God. Instead of searching
for Holy Communior
with God who can provide
manna from heaven, and e
feast from a loaf of bread
and a few fish, the Jewish
people complained against
God. They challenged
His wisdom and power
And they accused Him ol
deception and malice.
In our wilderness will
we be overthrown or will
we find a place where
God prepares us a feasi
of comfort, peace, and
provision? God is always
near to draw us closer tc
Him. Let's learn to embrace
Him and His Cross; Christ,
lifted up on the Cross, is
our Tree of Life.

heating homes.
For the best chance
of surviving a fire, homes
should have at least one
working smoke alarm
per level and outside the
sleeping areas. Having
just changed the clocks,
all smoke alarm batteries
should have been changed
as well. Smoke alarms
should be tested monthly to
have a reasonable assurance
they will function properly
when needed. In addition
to working smoke alarms,
each family should have
a home escape plan. The
plan should include two
ways out of each room,
a meeting place, and a
method to call 9-1-1 once
outside the home. The
plan should be practiced so
everyone knows what to do
before the emergency.

Common Fire Hazards
include:

* Candles- Never leave
a room with a burning


safety
candle. To keep the
flame down, make sure
the wick stays trimmed
to /4 inch. The candle
should be on a sturdy
surface away from any
combustible materials.
It is recommended to
keep a safe clear zone
of 18-24 inches away
from a burning candle.
SSpace Heaters- Do not
use extension cords
with electric space
heaters. They should
have a functioning
safety "tip over" switch
that will turn it off or
turn the heating element
off when it is tipped
over. Always keep
safe and clear zone of
3 feet around any space
heaters including any
furniture. Never leave
a space heater on in an
unoccupied room or
while sleeping..For fuel
space heaters, never
fuel it when the heater
is on or still hot. The
vapors from the fuel


can ignite quickly and
violently. Make sure
the proper fuel is being
used in the space heater
and never fuel it inside
or close to the home in
case of a fuel spill.
* Fireplaces- Keep the
chimney clean. They
should be cleaned
annually depending on
amount of use. Always
use a screen or door to
keep the embers from
escaping and catching
combustibles on fire.
Use a listed flame rated
pad or non-combustible
surface in front of the
fireplace. Make sure
the fire is completely
out before going to
bed. A smoldering fire
can produce carbon
monoxide which is an
dangerous, odorless and
colorless gas.
* Cooking- Never leave
food cooking on the
stove unattended. Keep
dangling cloths, curtains


and other combustibles
away from the stove.
Make sure the stove
is off before going to
bed. Turn pot handles
in so small. children
cannot grab them.
Always be particularly
cautious with children
living in the home..

"With your attention
to some of these basic fire
safety tips the chances of
experiencing a fire in your
home can be significantly
reduced." says ACDPS Fire
Marshall, Mark Smith.

Safety at 352-384-3101.
