Stevenson: Bullying incident highlights need for action

Managing Editor
A recent incident of appar-
ent bullying sent an 11-year-old
Roulhac Middle School girl to the
hospital with two broken bones,
and led to a five-day suspension
of the other student involved.
A family member said the little
girl has been subjected to regular
No further action has been tak-
enas of yet regarding the incident,
however, as bullying is increas-

ingly recognized as a problem,
the school district and Sheriff's
Office plan to establish an anti-
bullying program in the schools.
Under Florida statute, Injury
and Violence Prevention Edu-
cation regarding bullying and
harassment is not specifically
required in schools.
Statute 1006.07(6) (2004),
however, requires district school
boards to provide for the welfare
of students by using the Safety and
Security Best Practices to conduct
a self-assessment of the district's

current safety and security practic-
es. The self-assessment includes
indicators for districts to adopt
violence and drug prevention,
safety and health curricula and
programs and to teach students
at each grade level violence pre-
vention, conflict resolution, and

County School District and law
enforcement have in mind. As

Torch run comes to the county

Managing Editor
afelsberg @ chipleypaper.com
"It's a great event to be in-
volved in," said Washington
County Assistant Warden Chuck
Halley Friday morning.
That great event is the annual
state-wide torch run for Special
Olympics. Law enforcement
does the run, and Tifft said that
state corrections is particularly
involved this year.
"Secretary James McDonough
is particularly strong behind the
run, and corrections officers from
across the state are taking part this
year," he said. "It goes through
every county in the state from
Pensacola to Key West.
That effort paid off as Holmes
and Washington corrections of-
ficers joined other law enforce-
ment at the event. Holmes County
representatives started at Bonifay
Piggly Wiggly. They carried the
torch to Pizza Hut, where it was
passed off to Washington County.
Then it was off to the Washington
County Courthouse, where Wash-
ington County runners took the
torch to Interstate 10, where it was
transferred to Bay County.
Corrections, local law enforce-
ment and probation officers par-
ticipated in the run.
Law enforcement officers from
over 300 Florida agencies (police
departments, sheriff's offices,
Florida Department of Correc-
tions, Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, Federal Bureau of
Investigation, Drug Enforcement
Agency, U.S. Customs, Air Force
Police and Marine Patrol) all par-
ticipate in the state-wide torch run
to benefit the athletes of Special

Olympics Florida. Each year, over
3,000 officers carry the torch on
a 1500-mile relay through more
than 60 counties in Florida.
Funds are generated through
contributions from individuals
and businesses along the way
and through sales of Torch Run
T-shirts and caps.
This event is held each year
prior to Special Olympics Florida
State Summer Games, which will
be on April 27 at the University of
South Florida in Tampa. The intra-
state torch relay will last the entire
month of April and culminate at
the Opening Ceremonies. Officers
from around the state join together
to bring the "Flame of Hope" into

the stadium.
The mission of Special Olym-
pics Florida is to provide year-
round sports training and competi-
tion in a variety of Olympic-type
sports for people with intellectual
disabilities who wish to partici-
pate, giving them continuing
opportunities to develop physi-
cal fitness, demonstrate courage,
experience joy and participate
in the sharing of gifts, skills, and
friendship with their families,
other Special Olympics athletes,
and the community.
The ultimate objective of Spe-
cial Olympics Florida is to help

ing program is in the works for
Washington County.
At a recent workshop on gangs,
three other priorities for combined
efforts by the schools and law en-
forcement were listed: Bullying,
drugs and violence.
School Superintendent Calvin
Stevenson said the incident at
RMS is exactly what the schools
hope to prevent in the future.
"It will only get worse, not
better, if we don't jump on it,"

BD II now has

contract for

Smith Lake

Managing Editor
The Holmes County Devel-
opment Commission approved
passing the contract for its land
at Smith Lake from The Fowler
Center and Parks and Wildlife
Services to Blue Dolphin II.
Interim Development Com-
mission Director Jake Jacobs said
the Commission approved the
transfer at a meeting last Tuesday
night after receiving word that the
Fowler organization cannot come
up with the money to develop its
planned Life in the Wild theme
park. Blue Dolphin II will now
raise the money to purchase the
Smith Lake property and will
lease the site to Fowler, Jacobs
Jacobs said the vote was 6-1
with member Bobby George not
voting and member Eddie Paul
opposing the move. Other mem-
bers were not present. Jacobs said
the papers have been signed.
The Commission had no le-
gal agreement of any kind with
Blue Dolphin II prior to Tuesday
The Commission terminated
the original contract with Fowler
in August, 2006.
There were several provisions
in the contract in dispute between
the two parties. Commission in-
clhded provisions that the ticket
entrance would be in Holmes
County on Thomas drive so the
County would benefit from the
ad valorem taxes.
Public access to Smith Lake
was to be allowed following
about $750,000 worth of work
by Florida Wildlife Conservation
Commission to improve the lake.
There was a verbal agreement be-
tween Commission and Wildlife
to keep public access.
There were also covenants in
the various drafts of the contract
on what type of business devel-
opment could be done on the
780 acres, a provision for right
of first refusal by Commission if
the Fowler Center decided to sell
the property within 20 years, and
other covenants.
The Development Commis-
sion later made a new contract
with Fowler reducing the price
of the Smith Lake property from
$5,000 to $4,000 an acre, and
changing the language of the

Patients across the country
have been raving about this new

technology from Beltone!

Zig Ziglar, master of motivation, has inspired millions with his advice on
rising to the top, overcoming weakness, attracting success and developing
an optimistic, healthy attitude. He's also a Beltone One!T wearer. Here's
what he has to say:

"Mian. beautiful sounds come from conversation, music, and life in general,
but many people are unable to hear those beautiful sounds because of
impaired hearing. Not long ago I was among that group, but thanks to
Belione's incredible new One!T hearing aid I now enjoy to a much greater
degree every experience in my life. It's safe to say I tried at least seven or
eight other devices with no result. The new Beltone hearing aids really
do the job. And my wife absolutely loves them, too! She no longer has
I to raise her voice to communicate with me. Give them a try. Call your
local Beltone provider and tell them you want a chance to hear better,
and ask for Beltone One!TM. You'll be glad you did!"

Sending swarms to

harass our people

In a property-rights
case, the government is
arguing it has a right to
abuse its power.
Let's say government of-
ficials want you to turn over
a piece of your property
to them for free. Let's say
you refuse, arguing that you
have no legal requirement
to do so. And let's say the
government officials then
embark on a harassment
campaign to intimidate you
into giving them what they
Should that be legal? We
know that the Fifth Amend-
ment protects the public's
right to keep government
off their property. But is it
implicit in that right that
.government agents cannot
abuse their power to harass
This is the subject of
a case now being argued
before the U.S. Supreme
Court in Wilkie v. Robbins.
As R.S. Radford and Timo-
thy Sandefur of the Pacific
Legal Foundation explain
in a Legal Times article,
Harvey Frank Robbins is a
Wyoming man who bought
a ranch in 1993, "not know-
ing that the previous owner
had agreed to give the Bu-
reau of Land Management
an easement over the land.
BLM agents, however,
had neglected to record
the easement, so when the
purchase went through,
Robbins got the land free
and clear."
This clearly was the mis-
take of the government
agents, yet they weren't
about to let Mr. Robbins
off the hook when he did
not accede to their request
to reinstate the easement.
The agents made threats
against him.
Justice Ruth Bader Gins-
burg spoke during oral
arguments "of a pattern
of harassing conduct that
included trespasses on this
man's lodge and leaving the
place in disarray, videotap-
ing the guests, selective
enforcement of the graz-
ing laws, a whole pattern
of things, even asking the
Bureau of Indian Affairs to
impound his cattle."

Rather than punish these
government agents who
have clearly abused their
power, the federal govern-
ment is asserting in the
nation's highest court the
right of government repre-
sentatives to act in this very
In this case, the fed-
eral government claims
that there is no constitu-
tional right to physically
exclude the government
from your property, and
even if there were such a
right that it would offer no
protection against harass-
ment. This government
argument, Messrs. Radford
and Sandefur explain in an
amicus brief on behalf of
Mr. Robbins, is "based on a
disturbing and mistaken un-
derstanding of the relation-
ship between the American
people, their government
and constitutional protec-
tions of private property
The framers of the Con-
stitution accorded great
weight to the importance
of private property as a bul-
wark of personal sovereign-
ty and autonomy, which not
even the power of govern-
ment could breach except
in limited circumstances.
If the government were
allowed to retaliate against
citizens who exercise their
right to exclude govern-
ment agents from their
land, the right itself would
be extinguished."
In a society that respect-
ed individual freedom, the
agents who harassed Rob-
bins would face prosecu-
tion. Instead, they are exon-
erated, and the government
itself arrogantly demands
a right to harass individual
citizens because - get this
- the Constitution does not
specifically forbid harass-
ment by such officials. If
the Supreme Court sides
with the Bureau of Land
Management, then the rule
of law will be eroded, and
we will all be subject to the
whims of the most abusive
government officials. A de-
cision is not expected until
early summer.

Dem's next debacle - More war-funding follies

Democrats in Congress

The consequences will
be lasting. House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi and Senate
Majority Leader Harry
Reid will find their par-
ty shattered. Presidential
candidates Hillary Clinton
and Barack Obama will be
forced to choose sides in
their party's schism.
The game will unfold
predictably. The House and
the Senate will compromise
on the differences in their
legislation funding the Iraq
War; the end product, car-
rying poison-pill language
that sets a deadline for
troop withdrawal, will go
to the White House to face
an inevitable presidential
veto. The Democrats' over-
ride attempt will fail - and a
deadlock will ensue.
Then the Democrats will
threaten to withhold fund-
ing for the war in Iraq un-
less the White House agrees
to some form of deadline.
The Bush administration
will reply that it will never
agree to a schedule for troop

withdrawal - and both sides
will glare at the other across
an abyss.
But Bush will, inevitably,
win the game of chicken.
Pelosi and Reid have too
much sense to be caught
denying funding to troops in
combat. Bush will make the
, price of obstinacy too great
for the Democrats to bear.
Nobody will want to be
in the position of cutting
off funding and appearing
to undermine the troops
during a war.
But the consequences for
Pelosi of a retreat will be
serious: She'll leave behind
her the party's left - who
will never vote for funding

without also mandating
withdrawal. Pelosi will
have to scramble and craft
a majority with a combina-
tion of Republican votes
and support from the center
of her own party.
The speaker will prob-
ably wind up having to vote
against the majority of her
Democratic members. That
spectacle won't be healthy
for her future authority or
If the Republicans are
smart, they will let Pelosi
hang by her own rope and
will force her to break her
party apart by twisting arms
for every last vote to pass a
funding bill.
Inadvertently forced into
triangulation, Pelosi and
Reid will be the unwilling
instruments of a schism in
their party from which it
may not recover until after
the 2008 election. The fault
lines between those willing
to fund the war without a
withdrawal amendment
and those who insist on a
date certain for a pullout
will define a growing split
within the party akin to the
one that drove students into
the streets of Chicago out-
side the party convention
in 1968.
In the presidential race,
Clinton and Obama will
face moments of truth in

deciding which side of the
schism to occupy. They
won't be able to fudge their
positions any longer. Hill-
ary, in particular, will have
to come down for the war
or against it - with lasting
consequences for her can-
The left will not forgive a
vote to fund the war without
requiring a withdrawal date
- but the general elector-
ate will not look kindly on
pulling back funds during
a war.
For his part, President
Bush needs to stand firm as
this process unfolds. The
split the funding resolution
will catalyze in the Demo-
cratic Party may be his
party's only hope of hang-
ing onto the White House in
2008. He should resist calls
for compromise, since any
halfway solution or diplo-
matic wording that could
appeal to both sides will
rescue the Democrats from
the horns of their dilemma
- and run most or all of the
risks for the troops and the
mission in Iraq as the cur-
rent bills present.
Bush should demand a
clean appropriations bill
or guarantee a veto. If he
doesn't flinch and congres-
sional Republicans don't
defect, it will be bad news
for the Democrats.

To the Editor:
What would you call
over 300 professional and
lay persons congregating
to discuss the inexplicable
increase in murder/suicides
and all manner of abuse tak-
ing place in the homes of
our rural communities and
across the country?
We call it the Tenth
Annual Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence
(FCADV, based in Tallahas-
see), Behind Closed Doors.
It occurred March 13-15 in

Lake City.
There were all manner of
break out classes from the
professionally oriented such
as What Law Enforcement
Needs to Know About Teen
Dating Violence, and Evi-
dence Based Investigation
for Law Professionals, to
the entertaining and emo-
tionally charged, Traumatic
Stress and Body Awareness:
Helping Children Heal, and
Compassion, Fatigue, and
Self Care: What Every Ad-
vocate Deserves to Know.

The three classes that I
participated in were worth
more than the $20 regis-
tration fee that was paid.
That doesn't include the
' opportunity to network with
people from administra-
tors of homeless shelters,
to judges and lawyers, and
case workers from HRS.

There was so much in-
credible information of-
fered, I could only process
one whole day of the activi-
ties. Kudos to FCADV for
continuing to educate us in
ways to keep domestic vio-
lence out of our families.

student who can benefit most from your influence.
As a mentor, you meet once a week with your student
for one hour at his or her school. You will help your child
build a foundation of basic values, and assist them in setting
goals and attaining them. All weekly mentoring sessions
take place on the school campus at a time that is convenient
for both you and your student. Anyone interested in having

Bike-A-Thon benefits St. Jude's hospital

Managing Editor
The parking lot at Phillip
Rountree Stadium was the
scene of what looked like
fun Saturday. And indeed
it was, as young people of
every age were pedlaing up
and down as they enjoyed
their Bike-A-Thon for St.
Jude's Children's Hospital.
Roulhac Middle School
Builder's Club members
were there to help, and
students at RMS helped
by raising over $2,000.
Once everyone was done
cycling, they enjoyed lunch
provided by Subway.
St. Jude is unlike any oth-
er pediatric treatment and
research facility anywhere.
Discoveries made here have
completely changed how
the world treats children
with cancer and other cata-
strophic diseases, according
to the website, www.stjude.
Patient acceptance is
based on the patient's eligi-
bility for an ongoing treat-
ment study, regardless of a
patient's race, sex, ethnicity,
religion, nationality or abil-
ity to pay. Parents who wish
to have their child treated
at St. Jude should have the
child's physician contact
them at 1-866-2STJUDE
Since the hospital is
a research center, every
child accepted is enrolled
in a specific study or "pro-
tocol." Information gath-
ered from these studies is
used in developing better
treatments. Protocol-based
therapy has led to improved
cure rates for potentially
fatal pediatric diseases.
All patients accepted for
treatment at St. Jude are
treated without regard to
the family's ability to pay.

More than 50 years ago,
Danny Thomas, then a
struggling young enter-
tainer with $7 in his pocket,
knelt in a Detroit church
before a statue of St. Jude
Thaddeus, the patron saint
of hopeless causes. Thomas
asked the saint to "show me
my way in life."
His prayer was answered,
and soon he moved his fam-
ily to Chicago to pursue
career offers.
In the early 1950s,
Thomas began discussing

Gradually, the idea of a
children's hospital, pos-
sibly in Memphis, Tennes-

see, took shape. In 1955,
Thomas and a group of
Memphis businessmen who
had agreed to help support
his dream seized on the
idea of creating a unique
research hospital devoted to
curing catastrophic diseases
in children. More than just
a treatment facility, this
would be a research cen-

Thomas had started rais-
ing money for his vision of
St. Jude in the early 1950s.
By 1955, the local business

cause began area fund-

The area will see how

at 1 p.m.
There's little question
that the East boys can score.
The 12 active roster players
for the East, selected from

There's no doubt that 220
points won't be put on the

at least not by one squad.
But chances for an as-

are good for the East, which
will attempt to eclipse the
West's 103 points for the
highest total among both the
boys and girls games. Indi-

82 behind balanced scoring
from six players in double
figures paced by Port St.

Expectations are high
for a first-time East sweep.
The boys are confident,
simply because of the abun-
dance of talent on the roster,
while the girls are working
together as a team after
staging several practices
over the past few weeks.
Each team, on both the
East and West sides, i's
beginning to take the event
more seriously. Interest was
high in the months leading
to team selections and play-
ers were genuinely excited
to be chosen and immedi-
ately went to work.

After many "repeats" on
the opening and closing of
the windows, a note was
left on the blackboard by
a school patron asking:
"Why are you leaving the
windows open? We want
them closed." My uncle
replied with this caustic
message left on the black-
board: "Polluted air makes
pale faced people."
Another memorable sto-
-ry is the time my grandpar-
ents gathered up a supply
of "provisions," loaded
up all the children, and
maybe others, on a two-
mule wagon and headed for
High Hill for the weekend.
They planned to visit their
school teacher son whom
they felt had "done good."
I'm guessing they expected
to attend services on Sun-
day at High Hill Primitive
Baptist Church.
Upon arriving late on

he would welcome an op-

to the hallowed burying
On March 5, I cleared
Whit's invitation with Dale
and learned that Dale's
older brother, Kent Taylor
of Crawfordville, had been
added to the party. In the
telephone conversation, I
invited Dale and Kent to
have breakfast with Hester

south to the cemetery. They
graciously accepted and

was invited to join in the

What exactly constitutes
bullying? Bullying, acord-
ing to the Manatee County
schools web page (which
has an extensive section
on bullying) is a form of
violence among children,
is common on school play-
grounds, in neighborhoods,
and in homes throughout the
United States and around
the world. Often occurring
out of the presence of adults
or in front of adults who
fail to intercede, bullying
has long been considered
an inevitable and, in some
ways, uncontrollable part of
growing up.

factor in shootings at Col-

Littleton, CO, in .1999 and
Santana High School in
Santee, CA, in early 2001
and in other acts of juvenile
violence including suicide.
Bullying can affect the
social environment of a
school, creating a climate
of fear among students,
inhibiting their ability to
learn, and leading to other
antisocial behavior.
Nevertheless, through
research and evaluation,
successful programs to
recognize, prevent, and
effectively intervene in bul-
lying behavior have been
developed and replicated
in schools across the coun-
. try. These schools send the
message that bullying be-
havior is not tolerated and,
as a result, have improved
safety and created a more
inclusive learning environ-
A recently published re-
port by the National Institute
of Child Health and Human
Development (NICHD) on

cent of the respondents had
been bullied "sometimes"

both bullied others and been'

estimated that 1.6 million
children in grades 6 through
10 in the United States are
bullied at least once a week
and 1.7, million children
bully others as frequently.

through eighth grades, and
persists into high school.
The NICHD study found
that bullying has long-term
and short-term psycho-
logical effects on both those
who bully and those who
are bullied. Victims experi-
enced loneliness and report-
ed having trouble making
social and emotional adjust-
ments, difficulty making
friends, and poor relation-
ships with classmates.
Victims of bullying often
suffer humiliation, insecuri-
ty, and a loss of self-esteem,
and they may develop a'
fear of going to school. The
impact of frequent bullying
often accompanies these
victims into adulthood;
they are at greater risk of
suffering from depression
and other mental health
problems, including schizo-
phrenia. In rare cases, they
may commit suicide.
A perpetrator's bully-
ing behavior does not ex-
ist in isolation. Rather, it
may indicate the beginning
of a generally antisocial
and rule-breaking behav-
ior pattern that can extend
into adulthood. Programs
to address the problem,
therefore, must reduce op-
portunities and rewards for
bullying behavior.

In 1968, Shriver orga-

at Soldier Field in Chicago,
in the belief that the les-
sons these athletes learned
through sports would trans-

and success in school, in
the workplace, and in the

Activities at this year's Legends
& Lore festival, held March 30-31
at Falling Waters State Park, seemed
to be pretty well laid out. In one
spot, children visiting from Kate
M. Smith Elementary School were
able to use a big two-man saw to
cut pieces off a cedar log with Ben
Marchman, saw instructor, giv-
ing advice. Close at hand, Rivka
Gamble, a park employee, helped
the kids split the wood rounds using
a piece of metal for an adze. Most
of the cedar pieces found their way
home as souvenirs.
In the same area, Jamie Trescott
split some of the largest pieces of
cedar to use in making wooden
spoons and little wooden paddles for
the souvenirs. A large hand drill was
placed on a piece of wood nearby so
the kids could bore a hole and mark
it with their initials.
Another area with several com-
plementing exhibits was the place
where Raymond Smoker and Clyde
W. Land shucked corn for a ma-
chine which removed the kernels,
dropping them into a box. There
were corn shucks everywhere but
no one seemed to want them for
From there, the corn moved to an
old-time machine operated by Bill
Maphis which crushed the corn. The
resulting corn meal was cleaned by
seining it through metal screens. At
the next exhibit, women were frying
up little bits of "bread" made from
the yellow corn meal which was
packaged and sold there, along with
white grits.
Other booths were manned by
Phillip Holley, a blacksmith from
Black Dog Forge in Cottondale;
Farris Stewart of Chipley, who
displayed homemade soap; Carol
Yoder of Grand Ridge using an old
sewing machine to make a colorful
quilt top; peanut Santa Clauses by
Rhoda Girvin of Marianna; cast
iron cooking by George Apthorp,
Arnold Kuenzler and Danny Paul of
the Park Alumni Association, who
baked muffins in cast iron pots over
an open fire for visitors to sample.
There was fresh buttermilk to
sample; baked goods, a dried bean

which was nearby. The town was
later named after Colonel W.D. Chi-

Orange Hill was first named
Hickory Hill because of all the

changed to Orange Hill because
the frost-free area allowed oranges
to grow in profusion. According to

were full of hickory, walnut and

plants noted
For those who enjoy bird
watching, The Old Farmer's
Almanac All-Seasons Garden
Guide suggests several bird-
attracting plants.
*Aster: This plant's late
summer to autumn daisylike
flowers develop, tasty seed
heads sought by cardinals,
chickadees, finches, nut-
hatches, and many other seed
*Goldenrod: Goldenrod's
showy panicles of golden-
yellow flowers appear from
late summer to fall on clumps
of upright to branching leafy
stems, providing food (flower
seeds) and cover for birds.
Its nectar-rich flowers attract
insects, which are a feast for
bluebirds, mockingbirds,
warblers, wrens, and other
insect eaters; goldfinches and
other small birds relish the
seed heads.
*Common elderberry:
More than 120 bird species
seek food, shelter, and nest-
ing sites here. In early sum-
mer, beautiful, large, um-
bel-shape heads of creamy-
white flower clusters attract
hummingbirds; late summer
to autumn's heavy crop of
purple to black berries draws
catbirds, orioles, robins, tan-
agers, thrashers, warblers,
waxwings, and woodpeckers,
to name a few.
*Dogwood: This tree of-
fers summer shelter and nest-
ing sites. From late summer
to fall and occasionally into
winter, its small, fleshy fruit
attract more than 90 species
of birds, including bluebirds,
cardinals, grosbeaks, jays,
sparrows, tanagers, thrushes,
vireos, many warblers, wax-
wings, and woodpeckers;
some birds hunt for insects in
the bark.

'Songs of the South' festival Oct. 20
The Sunny Hills community will play host to the "Songs
of the South" Music and Arts Festival Saturday; October 20,
at Wilder Park. This all-day event, held in coordination with
the Washington County Arts Council, will celebrate the mu-
sic, culture and arts and crafts of Northwest Florida. Admis-
sion to the event is FREE.
A full schedule of music performances are planned from
local and regional bands in a variety of genres: bluegrass,
country, folk, and gospel. In addition to the main stage, a sec-
ondary stage will be set up at the food court where individuals
or smaller groups of performers, storytellers, or dancers can
entertain diners while they enjoy Southern food from our ven-
dors. (The festival is completely alcohol-free.) During inter-
missions of the regularly scheduled programming, the stage
will be open to informal jam sessions.
Celebrating local folk arts is another important component
of the festival. A "gallery" tent, sponsored by the Washington
County Arts Council, will display the submissions into the
many categories of our folk art competition: from painting to
needlework to ceramics.
Specific fundraisers, such as a silent auction, will be held
to benefit the needy children of Washington County. A coun-
ty-wide art contest will be held at the beginning of the 2007
school year to choose a piece of artwork to adorn festival T-
shirts and program books. The festival itself will host an ar-
ray of kids' activities centered around the Wilder Park play-

Church musicals enrich Easter season

.For Real Power
Two Chipley churches pre-
sented Easter musicals this
.weekend, but they were by no
means the same musical. The
common thread was Jesus.
Children and teenagers
were the stars of Freewill Bap-
tist Church's musical, "It All
Happened in the City." The
cast of 19 youth and five adults
'performed Thursday evening,
-March 29, and Sunday, April
1 during the church's midday
worship service.
The plot, as spun by Rich-
ard Vickery's 'Uncle Yule',
'took country cousins to the
city and brought city cousins
.to the country, all while shar-
ing the gospel and learning
valuable life lessons. Brittany
Roche, rocking on the porch
of the family farm, got laughs
when her character 'Granny'
complained about eating un-
dercooked fish in a New York
sushi bar. Upon meeting up
with two country bumpkins
in the city, hipster 'Snoop
T', played by Denise Sprack-
len, greeted them with, "Yo
dog." Country cousin LuAnn,
played with believable naivete
by Haley Creamer, got laughs
when she deadpanned, "No,
'we didn't bring our dog."
The music was multicul-
tural and upbeat. "Jesus Is In
the House" was a rap number,
while "I Am Free" had Latin.
:undertones. The only possi-
ble improvement to the score
.might have been for the porch
;crew to drone out that Hee
HIaw classic, "You met anoth-
er and Phht! you.were gone."
Yes, the porch crew - Vickery,
Roche, and freckled and bare-
foot country girls 'Jessie' and

ancient Jerusalem and Jesus'
crucifixion and resurrection.
Dialogue between Terry
Kirkland's 'Nicodemus' and
Jim Sapp's 'Joseph of Ari-
mathea' provided interesting
insight into the predicament
of Jewish priests struggling
to reconcile ancient law with
the teachings and miracles of
Jesus. Mynard's pacing was
commendable. Cast mem-
bers preparing Jesus' body
for burial were unhurried,
reverent, as they wrapped his
body in cloth and anointed
him with oil. The flute-driven
instrumental selection played
by pianist Jenee Floyd, bass

guitarist Greg Mathis, drum-
mer Jay Stewart and flautist
Jody Shafer set an appropriate
tone for both the subject mat-
ter and for Mynard's vision
of the scene. Set designers
Cindy Wiggins and Rose and
Davis Adams created detailed
backdrops featuring marbled,
gold-capped columns in the
council's chambers and the
vine-clad mud brick walls
along the city's streets.
Gearldine Burch, Tommy
Hardy and Frances Kirkland
designed and sewed costumes
for the high priests that stole
the show. Crafted with exqui-
site fabrics and expert hands,

each costume, particularly
that of Buddy Shumaker's
'Caiaphas', was a work of
art. Other cast members wore
period dress that reflected the
economic strata of the cul-
ture, from barefoot peasants
wearing linen shifts to purple-
draped, leather-shod women
selling fabrics from baskets.
When asked why the church
invested such mastery in set
and costume design, Shiloh
Pastor Gary Wiggins said,
"This is not entertainment.
This is worship. We believe
the Lord deserves our best as
a way to honor him and share
the real meaning of Easter."

Shiloh Baptist Church presented a traditional passion play.

Without the Resurrection

. Without Resurrection Sun-
4ay, (or Easter, as Christians
,know it), there would be no
:resurrection power! Resur-
rection power gives us, first
:,of all, salvation for our mor-
'tal souls, and guarantees us
eternal immortality through
'forgiveness from sin, if only
Swe will ask Jesus in faith, be-
lieving. He was the first One
:to experience this blessing of
'resurrection power; and be-
,cause He rose from the dead,
so can we.
. This is our rightful in-
-heritance, through faith in
6t-he promises of God, as He
,promised in the "golden text
-of the Holy Bible:" St. John
,3:16, "For God so loved the
,world that He gave His only
,begotten Son, that whosoever
:believeth in Him, should not
"perish, but have everlasting
life." This is the greatest gift
,of all time, given for our ben-
�efit. Thank God, from whom
:all blessings flow.
Another blessing given to
-us, is the healing of our bod-
.ies, which was accomplished
:by the thirty-nine stripes that
-Jesus took on His back for our
:sakes. The Bible tells us that
HIis visage was marred more
-than that of any man. Not only
was He crucified; bearing the



Helen Hodge

shame and the unbearable
pain of being nailed to that
old cross; but He was actu-
ally crowned with an unbear-
ably painful crown of thorns
on His head. Think about the
pain of just one thorn you have
stepped on in the past! He was
also stabbed in His side, and
blood and water poured out of
His body. I can't even imagine
what He saw in us, that made

Him willing to take all of this
for our benefit. And imagine
this, He did all this for us,
while we were yet sinners.
One of the thieves that
were also being crucified on
another cross at the same time,
said to Jesus, "If you are the
Christ, save yourself and us."
The other thief spoke up and
said, "We deserve to be here,
but this man has done noth-
ing worthy of death." Then he
turned to Jesus and asked Him
to: "Remember me, when you
come into your kingdom."
Then Jesus told the last
thief which spoke,"This day
will you be with me in Para-
dise." Jesus didn't even have
to think about it, He recog-
nized the faith that this thief
had and He knew the man was
sincere, so Jesus immediately
forgave his sin and saved his
People, Jesus will forgive
us, and save us, if we will
only ask Him to. Only be sin-
cere with the Lord, when you
ask Him, because He hears
and He knows.
In order for you to appre-
ciate Jesus, and what He has
done, then you need to know
where He was coming from.
Never think that Jesus was
forced to give His life, no, He

was willing to give Himself,
because He loves you and
me so much! It is not that He
owed us anything; it is not that
He was forced to give Himself
in our behalf.
It was purely and simply
because He loved us that much
when we were so unloveable
and so underserving.
1 Corinthians 15: 57 & 58
says this: "But thanks be to
God, which giveth us the vic-
tory, through our Lord Jesus
Christ. Therefore, my beloved
brethren, be ye steadfast, un-
movable, always abounding
in the work of the Lord, for-
asmuch as ye know that your
labour is not in vain in the
Yes, the celebration of the
Resurrection is of the utmost
importance to those of us
who are called by the name
of Christian; which means,
"like Christ." That give us a
large responsibility to uphold,
doesn't it? What an awesome
name to live up to! It tells me
that I have quite a way to go,
yet, what about you?
We may not ever be de-
serving of such a love as
His, but thank you Jesus, that
you made a way for us when
it didn't look like we could
make it.

Resurrection Day
Someone once asked me to
share with them what Easter
means to me. My answer may
surprise you, for first of all
because as a child, and espe-
cially when our children were
little, I've enjoyed all the ac-
tivities associated with Easter
except one.
It is enjoyable to get the
family together in the kitchen
to boil and color the eggs, then
look back and see how big a
mess we made. It has been en-
joyable to hide the eggs and
help the children find them
and the expression they seem
to have. It seems they are
thinking, "why are these adults
playing this silly game that I
don't understand," but they go
along with us. Frankly I don't
think the adults understand it
either. Whether this practice
is pagan or Christian is a good
question, but at least it brings
families, adults and children
The dictionary says that
the name Easter comes from a
paschal feast, originally a fes-
tival in honor of the goddess
of spring, Eastre. Yet "pas-
chal" has to do with the Jew-
ish Passover. So we can see
that the word Easter has both
pagan and Jewish ties.
The funny thing is, even
though there is usually contro-
versy about the Easter egg, the
egg is significant with spring,
in that it represents new life.
It is also significant with the
Passover as a very important
part of the traditional Passover
meal, and many Christians see
it as a simple, maybe not ap-
propriate, way to understand
the Trinity of God. The col-
ored eggs are easy to bring
forth the message of new life
which both spring and the res-
urrection are noted for. Now
where the rabbit and the hid-
ing and hunting come in is be-
yond me.
I've got ideas, but they are
even more far-fetched than the
egg. So we will let that sleep-
ing dog lie. Oh, the thing as-
sociated with Easter that I
really don't care about, is the
new clothes deal, and the en-
tire pretense that is associated
with it. I probably don't need
to go there either, or at least
not today.
Now you're wondering,
why has Tim gone to all .the
trouble to bring these things
out, when asked the question,
"What does Easter mean to
you?" The reason is that Easter
represents more to me than the
Resurrection of Jesus Christ
and His winning the victory
over death, hell and the grave.
For to me, it brings me to
think of times when it seemed
things were hopeless, dark and
gloomy, when it seemed like
there was nothing that could
be done to change the situa-
tion. Yet, a higher power took
over and not only brought
hope, but also gave light, joy
and new life to that which was
dead. As we see every spring.
I see the first real Easter as
taking place some six thou-
sand years ago when God took
that which was dark, empty,
and void, basically took noth-
ing and created this beautiful
world and gave life.
The second Easter, which
comes to mind, occurred a
little over two thousand years
ago, the day that we celebrate
as Christmas. When God
looked down from Heaven,
knowing that sinful man need-
ed a Redeemer, because man
was hopelessly doomed, yet
God, in love, sent Christ, His
only begotten Son, to be born
of a virgin, knowing He would
live thirty-three and half years
without ever sinning. Then
come another very dark day,
the day when all the sins of
fallen men would be placed on
the sinless Son of God.
Then there came that day
that most of us think of, when
we think of Easter. This day
should rightfully be called,
resurrection day, the day Je-
sus Christ rose victorious over
death, hell and the grave.

From the


Tim Hall

Another thing that really
gets me so excited about the
Easter season is that I begin to
think of the Easter, or the res-
urrection day yet to come. The
next one cannot be far away,
when Christ, who died for my
sins, and rose victoriously re-
turns. When He splits the east-
ern sky and takes His church
out. When this old sin-ridden
body is laid down and I am
given that new body likened
to His.
No, I wasn't there to expe-
rience that first Easter, (when
He created this wonderful
world) when God took noth-
ing and made everything. Nor
was I there when He broke
the silence of four hundred
years and Christ was born.
No, I was not there when they
cruelly crucified Him upon a
cross, or the day that He rose
victorious. Yet I have experi-
enced an Easter (a new begin-
ning) that everyone who reads
these words can experience, a
day that I shall never forget.,
I was 12 years old, and there
in a mission in the inner-city
of Chicago Ill., I came to a re-
alization that my life had no
reason at that time, that I de-
served hell and so much more.
It was the darkest and empti-
est day of my life. But at that
darkest moment I experienced
Easter (a new beginning)!
As the gospel of Christ was
presented, as the Holy Spirit
moved, I was given new life.
Because of Christ's resurrect-
ed life, I now have assurance
that I will experience an even
greater Easter, yet to come,
when Christ comes for His
church, His Bride.
As you read these simple
words, have they brought joy
to you because you can re-
member when you truly ex-
perienced Easter (His resur-
rection from the dead)? I hope
so, but if not, please accept
this as an invitation to come
out of the dark into the light,
from that which is empty to
that which is full and colorful
with life.
Remember, Christ not only
died for our-sins, but He rose
victoriously that we might
have new life and live vic-
toriously in Him. "For God
so loved the world that 1-He
gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have
everlasting life." John 3:i6.
"For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23. Then together
we can look forward to the
next great Easter remember-
ing ".... Weeping may endure
the night, but joy comes in the
morning." Psalm 30:5b.

Easter Sunday

The Easter season is a time of awakening and rebirth.
Spring is in the air, and trees and plants are budding,
making everything seem to come alive again for this
special holiday. Young children, who may not fully
understand the true meaning of Easter, look forward to
jelly beans and Easter baskets.
Easter is a good time for reflection and nurturing of our
faith, and we all should be aware of
how good God is to us. Attending
church services and enjoying the
� f fellowship of family and friends is
important during the Easter season.
- I Just as we may give Easter gifts
. L B to our children, God has given a
special gift to us. God loves us so
1 much that he gave his only begotten
� son to die on the cross and to rise
h .o again on Easter so that we may have
S.o *eternal life.
The Son of Man must be handed over to sinful men,
be crucified, and three days later rise to life.

care for the child. If not,
the investigator has no
choice but to .place the
child in a foster home. A
centralized placement unit
takes custody and provides
basic needs until a foster
home is found. "This can
be a very long process,"
Bascetta said.
"Once a home is found,
foster parents attempt to
mend a child's broken spir-
it and protect them from
further harm. A child can
remain in foster care from
one night up to several
years until a more suitable,
permanent place is found,"
Bascetta said.
A judge determines what
is in the best interest of the
child, based on informa-
tion from attorneys from
all parties, case workers
Guardian ad Litem, and
sometimes the foster par-
A more suitable perma-
nent placement could be a
relative or family friend, a
rehabilitated caregiver, or
adoptive parents. "Only
about 20 percent of the
children in our foster care
system are eligible for
adoption," Bascetta said.
Bascetta gave several
ways the public could help
with foster care:
-Become a foster or
adoptive parent.
-Spread the word about
the need for more foster
homes. "Schedule a re-
cruitment event for your
business, church or orga-
nization," Bascetta said.
