Lassos and Hairbows
on March 8
Moms can make money and
get great deals at the fall Lassos
and Hairbows Kids Consignment
Sale to be held Saturday, March
8 from 8 a.m. 2 p.m. at the
Chipley Agriculture Center.
According to Holli Chastain,
event chair, participating is much
easier than a garage sale and more
profitable than a consignment
shop. "Sellers simply select the
items to sell, bring them to Lassos
and Hairbows on the drop-off day,
and organizers will sell them,"
she explains.
Sellers will earn 65 percent
of the profit with little work on
their part. In addition, proceeds
will go back to the community
through the work of the CJWC.
Only fall and winter clothes will
be accepted to provide a good
selection for the upcoming winter
Sales for the last event totaled
over $8,500 with consigners tak-
ing home over $5,500 in profits.
Consignors and Volunteers
will receive passes to the exclu-
sive pre-sale on Friday, March 7
and will have the first opportunity
to shop.
Complete information about
the sale can be found in the
Seller's Packet available at Com-
munity South Credit Union,
Panhandle Family Medicine, or
on-line at www.lassosandhair-
Those interested, contact Ay-
shia Hatcher at 638-4555 or Holli

One injured in Monday wreck

A driver was injured Mon-
day evening in an accident that
could have been much worse,
according to witnesses.
Washington County EMS,
Washington County Sheriff's
Office, Chipley Fire & Rescue
and7 Florida Highway Patrol
were on the scene after Jimmy
Shiver (address unknown)
went through the stop sign at
CR 277 and Hwy. 90 just east
of Chipley heading north at a
high rate of speed.
Witnesses reported that
Shiver went right through
the sign barely missing their
vehicle. Shiver then went up e
the driveway' of the Pik-Quik. 6
He barely missed a large live
oak and impaled his pickup on
another tree (above), bringing
his truck to a halt.
Shiver apparently struck
his head on the windshield but
was fairly alert throughout. He
was taken to Northwest Florida
Community Hospital for treat-
ment (right).

Hundreds honor Milton Johnson at Chipola Continuedfrompage5A

Managing Editor
Milton Johnson had a
reputation as a soft-spo-
ken coach during his long
coaching career. He did,
however, always get his
point across.
"He said it was impera-
tive that we make it to
practice onetime,' said Ri-
ley Whitaker, a player on
Johnson's first Cambellton
High Team in 1955. "Most
of us didn't know many big
words, but we learned what
imperative meant."
Johnson was honored
Saturday at an all-day cel-
ebration at Chipola College
in the old gymnasium, now
the arts center. Hundreds of
former players, cheerlead-
ers, and others from around
the nation stepped forward
on the old gym floor where
Johnson won 628 games
and led the Indians to sev-
en national championship
tournaments. They were
there to honor a man that
many cited as a major influ-
ence in their lives.
The ceremony started
with a luncheon at the old
gym, went to party at for-
mer Indians' player Ronnie
Myers' home, a dinner and
games between the Indians'
men and women's teams
against Okaloosa Walton
in the Milton H. Johnson
Health Center. The Indians
also host the Milton H.
Johnson basketball classic
every year.
The building, was
packed with players who
were on the floor for John-
son at. Chipola from 1961
to 1993, when he retired
from coaching. Also on
hand were many play-
ers and cheerleaders from
his Cambellton teams that
won three state titles and
amassed a Florida record
55-gain&e winning streak.
Johnson played on Chipo-
la's first-ever basketball
teatn under Coach Roy
Beall and finished college
at Livingston College,now
the University of West
A charter member of
the Florida Community
College Hall of Fame in
1990 and a member of the
National Junior College
Hall of Fame since 1993,
Johnson was clearly moved
by the large turnout.
"The truth this is the
first time today that I will
say I love you, and it won't
be the last time," he said.
The former Bay High
School star remembered
his first year at Cambellton
as a learning experience.
"I was right out of the
Army andI was still green,"
he said, "and I learned
from those guys and girls.
We ended up setting two
records that I believe still
stand we had an unde-
feated state championship

Former Southwest Loui-

South Florida Head Coach
Bobby Paschall of Enter-
prise, Ala. was on that first
Johnson team at Chipola,
and said it there was close
relationship between the
community and Johnson
from the beginning.
"One of things I remem-
ber most was how seriously
the community embraced
this community college,"
Paschall said. "Had it not

Former Chipola Player
Nikita Johnson, now asso-
ciate head coach at Louisi-
ana Tech, came to Chipola
from the small Jackson
County town of Green-
wood, ahd he said that
the values Johnson taught
stayed with his players.'
"There are so many
people's lives that Coach
Johnson has touched," he
said, and many are very
successful. "When you left
Chipola you took those
values with you."
Johnson served as an
assistant coach under John-
son for nine years before
coaching at other schools,

Kent Whitson of Chipley came to play at Chipola from

it was playing for Milton Johnson, but he also met

I"So many coaches
came out of Chipola," said
Robert Trammell, himself
a veteran former coach.
"What we took from coach
was the understanding that
we can't be beat, and if you
go with a plan you will be a
winner. I've coached at Ole
Miss and South Alabama,
and they 'were not as good
as Chipola."
A tour of the campus
followed the luncheon, and
Johnson urged everyone
to see the college. "If you
haven't been on this cam-
pus for a long time look at
what you built and you
built it," Johnson said.
"You talked so much
about what I did'for you,
but you never knew what I
appreciate about what you
did for me."

PdL lawsuit leads to

many comments
EDITOR'S NOTE: Most of our readers are familiar
with the recent lawsuit filed on behalf of two Ponce de
Leon students, Heather Gillman and "Jane Doe," by
the American Civil Liberties Union. The suit alleges
that the high school in effect
violated the civil rights of T -I
students. For complete cov- Local

A number of comments
have been received about the article, and here are several
examples. Some have been edited for length, grammar
'or spelling.

'the rules listed.

If the students can't wear clothes with rebel flags or
anything resembling their faith, they should not be able
to wear or show any type of gay acts. Students can't even
show affection if they are straight. They shouldn't be able
,to do it if they are gay.

The students, families and administration are so
concerned about the problems the homosexual students
may cause. I'd like to know if the community has yet to
-,be challenged to have African-American students attend
Ponce de Leon High School? Or would that cause too
much disruption also? As far as I know, the only African-
.American students who tried it a decade ago, were run off,
unofficially, of course. Maybe there's a deeper underlying
problem with the community of PDL that needs to be
.looked into by the ACLU!
Former Holmes County Teacher

Once again, my small home town is faced with growing
, pains. Welcome to the 21st century! As a Republican, I
.support individual freedom which means I support those
who are gay/lesbian.
The public school education system's teachers, prin-
ciples and board members do not have the responsibility
and should not have the responsibility to teach religious-
based ideals. They should not allow their personal beliefs
'to interfere with their public job. If they do, they are
violating all of bur rights.
To parents that wish to have "God" play a part in their
children's education, please do us all a favor and pull your
children out of the public school system and send them
to a private religious-based school of your own choice
Sand own funding.
To all haters, leave the radical religious ideological
thinking to the likes of terrorists like-Osama bin Laden.
When you invoke "God" to discussions such as these, you
are invoking the same argument that the terrorists make
whenever they try to justify their horrific actions. Look at
all of the countries that do not have a separation of church
and state. They are all pretty terrible places to live.
I think Heather Gillman is. well on her way of becom-
ing a responsible, compassionate adult.
Karen M. Ammons-Calderon

We all have choices to make in this life. Whether it is
a choice for sexual preference religion or clothing. The
rainbow has for a long time been a symbol of survival.
The rainbow was sent by God as a symbol of the promise
never to flood the world again; the promise of a brighter
tomorrow. Most of us have deep convictions one way or
the other. I stand firm that our Holmes County School
Board and the principal did what was necessary to main-
tain the high level of standards of education that we the
public want them to have to educate our children in a
safe environment.
I have personally raised .three children in this school
'district and worked with the principal and others at the
Ponce De Leon High School and it is my personal opin-
ion that they did what was necessary to maintain the high
standards that we as parents and citizens want them to
have in the troubled times that we live in.
A rainbow is a good symbol and should be allowed in
our schools however. I believe we should also educate
the ones that see it as a reminder of the.faithfulness of
GOD our heavenly father, that the promises of GOD.are
true and we should be thankful he gave us such a symbol
to appreciate!
Debra Foster

When is it a crime to be different? Why do people
think that everyone has to be the same? Everyone has
their opinion as I do. When I was growing up in this
town I wore rainbow shirts earrings when I got my first
car a rainbow tag was the first thing that I put on it. Not
because it represented anything but my like for the col-
ors. I think we need to realize everyone is not the same
it is not our right to judge other peoples lifestyles. If we
would pay more attention to what happens in our own life
and let others take care of theirs we might have a little
.more peace. Stand for something or fall for nothing! Go
Gillman Go.

According to ABC
News, published on
Crosswalk.com, "Euro-
peans have long viewed
the conflict between evo-
lutionist and creationists
as primarily an American
phenomenon, but it has re-
cently jumped the Atlantic
Ocean with skirmishes in
Italy, Germany, Poland and
notably Britain where Dar-
win was born and where
he published 'Origin of
Species' in 1859."
In this report they quot-
ed British cabbie James
Mclean saying, "Evolution
is a lie, and it's being taught
in schools as fact, and it's
leading our kids in the
wrong direction."
Tuesday evening Chan-
nel 13 out of Panama City
Florida did a brief report on
what is taking place with
the Florida Department
of Education proposing
to change the "Sunshine
Standards" which would
change the curriculum that
is being taught in our pub-
lic schools to teach evolu-
tion as a fact.
The report quoted some-
one from south Florida
which said they were trying
to bring Florida educations
standards to match that
of other states by taking
the word "theory" from

Sunday night, I watched
The Mask ofZorro. There's
something about action
movies that fire me up. Af-
ter watching one, I want to
go out and save the world.
I want to be a hero.
Me a hero? Even a su-
perhero? Nah.
I like the idea, though.
I think I'd make a decent
super hero. I already have
a great cover. Who would
ever expect mild-mannered
columnist Andrew Hol-
linger of having a secret
superhero identity? Kind
of, reminiscent of Super-
man, huh?
But mild-mannered An-
drew doesn't wear glasses
like Clark Kent. So my cos-
tume would have to have a
mask. I like the masks that
Zorro and the Lone Ranger
wore more than the mask
that Batman wore.
Then there's my cos-
tume. Every self-respect-
ing superhero has to be ap-
propriately attired. A good
costume begins with an

others lower their stan-
dards of education, we in
Florida are to also lower
our standards and teach
our children a lie. What if
the states around us sur-
rendered to the terroristand
jumped off a cliff, does that
mean all of Florida has to
follow suit? I think not!
If they want to teach
evolution in public school
as a religion, and that's
what it becomes when they
take the word "theory"
from its proper place, that
makes it against the Consti-
tution of the United States
of America. Then the state
is promoting a religion.
Evolution takes more
faith than any other reli-
gion on the face of the earth
to believe, because it is all
theory, dreamed up in the

mind of men.
If these people want to
teach their godless religion
they need to open up their
own schools just as the
Catholic, Christians and
others have done, but stay
out of the public school
system, so that our children
can get a good education,
which they deserve. (By
the way where is the ACLU
on this, why aren't they
protecting our children
from this push of religion
on the school system?)
Not only would the
teaching of evolution
without the word "theory"
following it be unconsti-
tutional, but it would also
teach our children that ly-
ing, not telling the truth, is
all right as long as we all
tell the same lie.
Of course this is not too
difficult for many people
because we have heard
now for many years poli-
ticians,,the media, and
physicians tell us to ignore
the truth, as they have led
this great nation to commit
the largest holocaust of all,
time in killing (aborting)
innocent children, and tell-
ing our children that an im-
moral life style is all right
as long as it feels good to
you, though you may die
young from AIDS.
As long as you think
this is what you want, it's
all right. *

against these lies; does it
really matter as long as we
teach our children the truth
at home?
Yes it matters, because
all children have the right
to be taught the truth in our
public schools, we must be
concerned and love them
all, knowing that truth is
the only thing that can set
people free from eternal
"But the cowardly, un-
believing, abominable,
murderers, sexually im-
moral, sorcerers, idolaters,
and all liars shall have their
part in the lake which burns
with fire. and brimstone,
which is the second death"
(Revelation 21:8 NKJV).
If God would take the
life of Hananiah in Jer-
emiah 28 because he lied
to the people of Israel,
what would God require
of Florida if we allow our
children to be taught a lie
as truth?

winner will be determined by an essay on how the Arts
has or will influence the course of his or her life.
Studies have proven that art in education helps the
student develop better communication skills-both verbal
and non-verbal, develop problem-solving skills and ap-
preciate and understand different cultures. Involvement
in the Arts enables young people to channel their energies
for the good of the community.
By encouraging students in the study of the Arts, the
WCAC hopes to contribute to the development of future
artists or an appreciation for the arts which insures future
audiences. All seniors who intend to pursue such a degree
are invited to enter the contest. Deadline for entries is
April 10 and the scholarship will be awarded on Senior
Awards Day in May.
For more information and essay guidelines, contact
your school guidance counselor, Karen Norris at Chipley
HighSchool or f.utn ie Locke at Verpon High School.

Story No. 6 in the recap for 2007: The Washington County Heritage Book

Exercising his "poetic
license," the Prattler will
dub this week's writing
as story No. 6 in the recap
for 2007.
Our topic today is the
Heritage of Washington
County book sponsored
by the Washington County
Library and Washington
County Historical Society,
which was released in June
2006. Two or more years of
planning and preparation
went into the book before
it was finally printed.
Much praise and thanks
is extended to the commit-
tee members who worked
tirelessly and faithfully
for an extended period of
time in getting together
the material which was
The prime movers of the
Heritage Book committee
are pictured and named in

the front of the beautiful
publication. They are Lin-
da Norton, Whit and Carol
Gainey, Bonnie Sloan,
Annie Merle Toole, Danny
Braxton, Inell Reeves, and
Perry and Hester Wells.
Washington County's
Falling Waters State Park is
currently one of the area's
most interesting places to
visit. Since its inception in
the early 1960s, the popu-
larity of the park has con-
tinually grown. The park is
one topic that could have
.been explored further in the
recent Heritage Book.
Previous stories by E.W.
(Judge) Carswell and oth-
ers have given historical
data on the early years of
the park. Numerous orga-
nizations and individuals
were involved in expand-
ing on the original idea
for the facility. They per-

come to full fruition in the
The E.W. Carswell

book, Washington, Flor-
ida's Twelfth County, is
the source of information
for much of this week's
In the family histories
and stories contained in the
2006 Washington County
Heritage Book, many ref-
erences are made to in-
dividuals involved in the
acquisition of the property
for Falling Waters State
Park and actively working
to see it come to a reality.
One such reference is in
the story of Ola Cook Rob-
ertson Culpepper. Ola and
husband, Jack Robertson,
owned and operated their
business, Falling Waters
Nursery, almost adjacent to
the park. They were active-
ly involved in landscaping
and in the beautification of
the property once it became
a state park.

I would like to take this opportunity to anriounce my candi-
dacy for sheriff of Washington County.
I have lived in Washington County for 14 years with my
wife of 23 years, Kathy, and four children, Ann, Michael Jr,
Alan and Gabby. We are members of Turning Point Church
of Chipley. I have been in the Army Reserve for 21 years and
have earned the rank of Master Sergeant. Seventeen of those
years in a leadership role. I own and operate a construction company (Southern Style Stucco)
which I have run successfully for 10 years. I have been a certified law enforcement officer for
11 years. I was with Washington County for 6 yrs and 10 mo., 3 1/2 years as a school resource
officer and DARE officer.
I bring law enforcement, business and leadership experience thus making me a multi-dimen-
sional Sheriff. After speaking with members of the community, I understand your concerns and
agree with them 100%. We need to aggressively attack the drug problem in our community. We
need to set up programs for our children, to be involved with them and to help guide them.
Deputies need to patrol the back roads as well as the main roads. All concerns and cares
need to be handled with the same respect, no matter if it's minor or major. Everyone will be
treated equally. It is time that the sheriff's department, the community and the police depart-
ment come together as one to make this community a better place to raise our families. This is
not a republican or democratic issue, this is a community issue. "This is not a me issue, but a
WE ISSUE" therefore making me available to everyone at all times. For me to be successful as
your sheriff, the community has to be involved. Together we can and will make a difference.
Thank you.

Recently, the entrance
leading into Falling Waters
State Park was officially
named and dedicated as
the Ralph C. Carter Jr.
The entire project was
spearheaded and carried
to completion under the
sponsorship of an organi-
zation known as Washing-
ton County Improvement
Authority, chaired by Hu-
bert Prescott. Other mem-
bers of that organization
include Claude Hicks, Dr.
Howard Tiller and others
whose names will appear
in the picture accompa-
nying today's story. This
group agreed to advance
$3,306.25 for the acquisi-
tion of land for the future
park with the agreement
that the money would be
repaid from proceeds-from
a timber-thinning operation

on the park site.
E.W. Wood sold 160
acres to the planners. With
an additional 20 acres
of county-owned land, a
swap to International Paper
Company was agreed upon
for the property needed for
the state park.
Others who became in-
volved in the dealings were
County Agent J.E. Davis
and his associate, Maurice
I. Fid Jenkins, chairman
of the local Democratic
committee, had a keen
interest in acquiring the
proposed site for the park.
He, along with others of
the committee, cooperated
by agreeing to place their
"per diem" money in the
fund for the purchase.

Fraud alert
Each winter season, sev-
eral Florida counties re-
ceive an influx of residents
and visitors.
Some of these visitors
come to. our area looking
to burglarize unsuspecting
residents. Statistics show
anyone can be a victim of
this type of crime.
Some of these criminals
may act as if they entered
your home by accident.
They give excuses like: "I
was trying to find my dog"
or "I thought this was my
friend's house."
Others may pose as
contractors offering home
improvement services. In
these instances they usu-
ally perform substandard
work and require payment
in advance.

person and/or vehicle con-
tact the Washington County

Jeff Pettis. Charlotte Shores
is the long-time administra-
tive assistant and Janice
Bruner Dawkins works
part-time as clerk.
An annual popular event
staged at the local park is
entitled, Legends and Lore.
It is scheduled for March
28 and 29. Bill Maphis,
who retired as long-time
manager of the local state
park, continues to live in
the area. He is chairman of
the two-day Legends and
Lore extravaganza.
A few weeks ago, an
archaeological "dig" was
carried out at the local state
park. This was done under
theauspices of the Florida
Archaeology Network. This
nrmict is heincr directed hv

University of West Florida
Professor John C. Phillips.
Locating Native American
cultural artifacts is one of
the purposes of this en-
deavor. The results of this
exploration was carried in
area newspapers.

underway to further ex-
plore any items of history
which may be contained in,
or related to the confines of
Falling Waters State Park.

GAL volunteers

needed in area
Guardian ad Litem Volunteers (GAL) are needed to
be the voice of the hundreds of children in Washington,
Holmes, and Jackson counties that are involuntarily in-
volved in the dependency or child welfare system due to
abuse, neglect or abandonment by their parents.
As a GAL, you will get to know children that have
been abused, and you will report what you observe and
what you think might improve their situations. You don't
have to be a child-expert; you just have to care about the
future of abused children and want to do what you can
to help.
Training to become a GAL is free. Once you are
trained and certified, you will have access to and guidance
from a staff of GAL professionals who are there to assist
you every minute of the process.
The time/hours/days that you spend volunteering as a
GAL are flexible, days/nights/weekends. It's up to you.
The average amount of time a volunteer spends is about
4-6 hours per month. For more information call 638-6043
or the Marianna office, 850-482-9127.

Jay Felsberg/Extrd
Dr. Jerry Windsor of the Florida Baptist Historical Society talks about the character of Robert E. Lee.

Heritage remembered

Lee birthday
celebrated by
Confederate Sons

Managing Editor
Robert E. Lee is probably
the most revered figure to come
out of the Confederacy, as well
as a popular figure in American
history. His birthday was cele-
brated on January 21 at Simbo's
Restaurant in Bonifay by the
Confederate Sons Association,
a Florida Confederate heritage
Keynote speaker was noted
state historian Dr. Jerry Windsor,
who is also secretary-treasurer
of the Florida Baptist Hlistori-
cal Association. Windsor spoke
of the parallel lives of two men
who served first the Confedera-
cy, and later the nation Lee and
John Albert Broadus, one of the
best known preachers and theo-
logians of the 19th Century.
"Both were native Virginians
and proud 'of it," Windsor said.
"Both opposed secession but fol-
lowed Virginia. Both had fathers
who were prominent politicians,
and both were well educated
(West Point and the University
of Virginia respectively).
"Both married well, and both
were married to invalids. Both
were very honorable, pious and
concerned about other people.
At the end of the war both were
primary reconcilers with the
Windsor also noted that both
served in the field during the
war, with Lee as a general and
Broadus as a chaplain after he
left Southern Baptist Theologi-
cal Seminary, then in Green-
ville, S.C.
The chaplains often were not
paid, Windsor noted. There was
no provision at first for chap-
lains and none at all for pay, and
there were only about 250 in the
entire Confederate army.
"They thought preachers
should fight," he said. "Semi-
nary students were conscripted
too." So, seminary professors
and preachers went out to preach
to the troops, as well as serve in
the war. For example, the pastor
of First Baptist Church of Mont-
gomery, Ala., Alexander Taylor
Tischner, served as a sharp-
shooter in the 17th Alabama
Volunteer Infantry.
Lee, who had opposed seces-
sion and remained mostly in-
different to politics before the
Civil War, supported President

Robert E. Lee
Place of birth: Stratford Hall,
Virginia, Jan. 19, 1807.:
Place of death: Lexington,
Virginia, Oct. 12, 1870, two
weeks after a stroke
Post War career: President
of Washington University (later
Washington and and Lee Univer-
sity), Lexington.

Andrew Johnson's plan of Presi-
dential Reconstruction that took
effect in 1865-66. However, he
opposed the Radical Republi-
can program that took effect in
Lee argued that a tone of rec-
onciliation and patience would
further the interests of white
Southerners better than hothead-
ed antagonism to federal author-
ity or the use of violence.
While there were many ca-
reers open to Lee after the war,
he chose to take the presidency
of Washington College in Lex-
ington, VA. The small college

Virginia, Jan. 24,1827.
Place of death: Louisville,

Post War career: Helped re-
build Southern Baptist Theolo-
giocal Seminary, teacher, preach-
er, pastor of Cedar Grove Baptist
Church in South Carolina.

near Virginia Military Institute
was impoverished after the war,
but Lee was up to the challenge
of rebuilding it.
Like Lee, Broadus also en-
tered (actually reentered) edu-
cation. When Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary reopened
in 1865, its small endowment
was gone, the students few, and
the prospect one of struggle and
sacrifice, according to graceon-
During the darkest days in
Greenville, Broadus revealed
his spirit when he said to the
other professors, "Perhaps the

Seminary may die, but let us re-
solve to die first."
However, it was in this period
of stress and strain, that Broadus
did some of his best and most
painstaking work, once care-
fully reworking his lectures on
homiletics for a blind student. In
1870 he published A Treatise on
the Preparation and Delivery of
Sermons, a book which was to
become and remain a classic in
its field.
The Seminary was moved to
Louisville in 1877. Though con-'
ditions were somewhat better,
Broadus and James P. Boyce,
the Seminary's first president,
were to give their lives trying to
establish the Seminary on a firm
financial foundation.
Broadus was offered many in-
fluential pastorates in the North
and South, many professorships
and other positions, but he had
cast his lot with the school and
with it he chose to remain.
The last years of his life were
years of increasing fame and
recognition. In 1889, he gave
the Lyman Beecher Lectures on
Preaching at Yale University,
the only Southern Baptist ever
to be accorded this honor and
became the Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary's second
president. His Commentary on
Matthew, Lectures on the His-'
tory of Preaching, Harmony of
the Gospels, and other books
were to add to his stature as a
"Both had a great sense of
duty, excellent education and
deep piety," Windsdr said.
"They both had their place and
filled it."

0, What a Shame!

Do you remember;
when the main problems'
in our public schools, were
talking and chewing gum?
That's been more than 40
years now, and that was,
the time that prayer and
Bible reading was re-
moved from our schools.
What a shame.
Since that time, do you
know what our main prob-
lems in school are today?.
I was told that today
there are about 10,000
cases of rape, drinking,
and drug use, among our
school age children, plus
the cases of shooting and
killing going on in our:
schools. And have you
picked up on the amount
of extreme disrespect to-
ward parents and teachers
and almost everyone in'
authority? What a shame.,
We are still com-
manded to train up our
children in the way they
should go. And when they
are old, they will not de-
part from it. Does that tell
you something? Someone
is not abiding in God's
Word. What a shame.-
It does not pay to kick
God out of everything.
The curses of Satan will
run rampant, when man-
kind gets to the place that
he thinks he does not need
God anymore. People, it is.
time for us to pray like we-
have never prayed before.
Remember this, people;'
we can enjoy the blessings-
of God if we are obedi-
ent to Him and his word,
Jesus Christ. Jesus is the
word, He told his disci-
ples, "These words which
I speak are not mine, but



Helen Hodge

my Father's which he sent'
me." That is the truth,
friends, let's get together
and. see that it is preached
and practiced from shore
to shore, in this great land
of ours. Remember this,
our great country, which
was given to us from God
above, was founded, root-
ed and grounded in God
and his word, and guess
what, God is still God;
and He has never changed
His mind about anything
which He spoke in His
- It seems that today,
many people are busy put-
iing down God's chosen
people, the Jews. Back in
May of 1948, Israel was
given back to the Jews
and they have inhabited
that land since then. It was
restored to them as God
said in His word, that it
would be. In May of this

year will be 60 years' that
they have inhabited their
homeland again after be-
ing pushed around by oth-
ers for so long. Then back
a few months ago, I could
not believe my ears, when
they were forced to give
up the Gaza Strip to oth-
ers who took over their
homes, schools, business,
and almost everything
else, they possessed. What
a shame.
Now I hear that pres-
siure is being put on them
again, to give tip more
of their land. I am even
ashamed to say who it was
that was putting the pres-
sure on them to give it
up. We are commanded in
scripture to, "Pray for the
peace of Jerusalem," and
even though they are hav-
ing to share this city with
others, it is called the city
of God, in the Holy Bible,
and it is actually the God
given capital of Israel.
Do you remember when
the Six Days War hap-
pened? That was in 1967.
Who ever heard of a war
lasting only six days? I
firmly believe that was be-
cause God was there fight-
ing for His chosen people,
don't you?
Think about this as I
understood it, Israel was
fighting that battle out in
the Sinai Desert, and on
this particular day, they
went marching into the
enemy territory, singing as
they marched. Then all of
a sudden, the soldiers from
Egypt jumped down off of
the tanks and other equip-
ment and literally ran for
their lives; from the scene

of the fighting.
It was told over the
news that Russia got very
upset at the Egyptians be-
cause they had furnished
these weapons to the peo-
ple of Egypt and they left
them sitting out there in
the Sinai Desert. Anyway,
when the enemy retreats,
the spoils of war usually
are claimed be the enemy.
In this case, Israel was
their enemy, and I don't
remember the outcome
there, only that ,that ac-
tion ended the war. Praise
* Israel was the victor be-
cause I firmly believe God
was fighting for them, and
we need to be very careful
that we stand with them in
prayer, especially for the
peace of Jerusalem, as we
are commanded to do in
God's Word. This is just
another example of the
way things are going in
this world, today.,
God is still in control,
and if we will only obey
His word then we know
that He will never leave us
or forsake us, but He will
be with us even unto the
end of the world. Also we
need to pray that our peo-
ple here in this country,
stop giving place to the
devil, if we ever hope to
accomplish anything good
and pleasing to God in this
And if our people don't
learn to do this, what a
shame. .It pays to obey
God, in all things.
This message is writ-
ten by Helen B. Hodge
of Bonifay. Phone is 850-

I want to share an e-mail
with you that I received
just after the Katrina disas-
ter. It teaches wonderful
examples of trust in God
(2 Cor. 1:8-11), content-
ment with what we have
(Phil. 4:11), and strength
for tomorrow (Eph. 6:10).
I just returned from New
Jersey. While en route,
I was stuck in traffic on
Interstate 81, just below
the Virginia state line, at
Bristol Tenn. due to a traf-
fic accident with a fatality
This accident involved a
tanker truck hauling a haz-
ardous material load that
developed a leak, which
meant that we weren't go-
ing anywhere for several
After being told by the
Tennessee .state troopers
that we would be sitting
still until the clean up was
completed, I set my brakes,
on the truck and got out to
stretch my legs.
Other truck drivers did
the same, and at one point
there were five ofus stand-
ing there by my truck,
Sitting right beside me
in the left lane, were two
elderly people in a Sil-
verado pickup truck, which
was loaded quite well. The
man, (Joe), lowered his
window and .asked what
was going on regarding
the traffic situation.
'Soon we were all talk-,
ing with, this couple. I
mentioned that if I had
known about this, I would
have bought something to
drink, (water), for I was
becoming thirsty. The lady,.
(Annia), said that they had
plenty of water, and sodas
in the cooler in the bed of
the truck, and offered ev-
eryone present something.
While she was back
there, she said that she
had plenty of tuna salad
made up, and asked if we
would be interested in a
sandwich. After some urg-
ing from Joe, we agreed to
a sandwich.
While Anna was making
the sandwiches on the tail-
gate of the truck, she was
singing like a songbird. To
be close to 70, (I guess),
she had a remarkable
voice. When she finished
making the sandwiches,
and putting everything up,
Joe raised the tailgate of
the truck to close it.
I noticed a Missis-
sippi license plate on it. I
inquired as to what part
of Mississippi they were
from. Joe said Biloxi.
Knowing that Biloxi had
also been ravaged by hur-
ricane Katrina, I asked if
they sustained any dam-
age. Joe said that they lost
everything except what
they had on and what was
in the pickup.
All of us drivers tried
unsuccessfully to pay them
for their drinks and the
sandwiches. They would
have nothing to do with it.
Joe said that their son
was living around Har-
risonburg, VA., and that
they were going there. He
was in the real estate busi-
ness and that there was a
home that became open,
and that they were go-
ing to start all over'there.
Staring over at their age
would not be easy.
I will soon be 48 years
old, and I have to say that

sandwich with side orders
of reality and. humility.
These people lost every-
thing except the pictures,
important documents, and
some clothes. -
Joe had managed to.
get their antique heirloom
grandfathers clock into the'
bed of the truck and Anna
got her china and silver-c
ware, but that was all,
These wonderful people,
lost practically everything&
they owned and still would
not accept any money for,
their food and drinks. Joe
said that "it was better to
give than it is to receive."
They sought refuge be- .
hind a block wall that he
had built years ago. and
they watched their' be-
longings and their home, -.
disappear in the winds of
Hurricane Katrina. Joe,
said that during all this he'
had one hand holding ontod-
Anna and the other hold--
ing on to God.
They and their truck.
came out of Katrina u n--
scathed. As I stated before,
Anna was singing a song
while making the sand-
wiches. The song is titled:
"I know who holds tomor-
row," an old gospel song.
She knew every word, ande
was quite a gifted singer
of it.
Have you ever heard
it? The chorus of this song
is, "Many things, about
tomorrow, I don't seem td.,
understand. But I know
who holds tomorrow, and I,
know who holds my hand.'"
There is no doubt, in my
mind who was holding
both their hands. I know.
there have been many sto-
ries that have circulated
over the years about things,
that will touch your, heart,
but this one reminds us of.
how much we need to rely
and trust in our great and
awesome God.

Medtronic has pulled its Sprint Fidelis defibrillation leads from the market
after fractures in the leads were linked to five patient deaths. Patients
with these leads may have received a warning letter from the manufacturer.
A fractured lead "can cause the defibrillator to deliver unneces-
sary shocks or not operate at all."
If you have a Sprint Fidelis lead, your Patient ID card should contain one of
the following four sets of numbers:
6930 6931 6948 6949
(These numbers may be shown at the beginning of a longer set of numbers on your ID card.)
In addition, the St. Jude Riata defibrillator lead has been reported to
punch holes in the heart and has been linked to at least
one death.
