Telling God To Get Out Rerun of a great story that is a reminder ….. WHY   DID   GOD   ALLOW   9/11   ?

Volume 17 Issue 8

personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

September 11th, That Date shows up as 911, The Emergency Phone Number Do You Think GOD is Trying to Tell us Something?

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11).

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."

Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said "I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?"  In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.  Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school ... the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.  Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.  Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it... no one, except you and GOD, will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in!

JOIN THE LIBERTY ADVISORY COMMITTEE FOR RANDOLPH COMMUNITY COLLEGE The purpose of the Liberty Advisory Committee is to assist Randolph Community College in establishing and maintaining up-to-date and relevant educational programs in Liberty.

It is a vital link between the community, businesses, industry and the college. The advisory committee’s role is advisory in nature. The committee’s function is to advise and assist in program planning, development, and evaluation. Each advisory committee will advise on the development, operation, and review of the program for which it is appointed.

Kayaking Trek Seven boy scouts and four leaders from Troop 508 in Ramseur recently set out on a kayak trek with BSA Pamlico Sea Base in Blounts Creek, North Carolina. Troop 508 kayaked over 55 miles along the Pamlico Sound and the Outer Banks. The trek included carrying all gear, food, and water needed for five days. The scouts paddled in the sound during the day and spent the nights camping on the beach, listening to the ocean waves and seeing the stars. The first day, the troop paddled from the city of Beaufort to Shackleford Banks and spent the night on the primitive island, their only companions were the wild horses that live there. The second day of paddling was the quickest and the most fun. There was a nice breeze so the scouts were able to unfold their umbrellas and use the umbrellas as a sail all the way to Cape Lookout. The scouts spent the day playing in the ocean, fishing, and visiting the Lighthouse. The third day was more difficult. The troop paddled more than 15 miles to get to the Great Island, fighting against the current at the beginning and then no current, no wind and very shallow water to paddle in. The total paddling time that day was over 7 hours. The next day was a journey to Long Point, with the scouts paddling over 17 miles in around 6 hours. Dinner that night was ravioli straight from the can, because the scouts were too tired to heat it up. At least it was warm from being in the kayak all day. The final day on Friday was a trek back across the sound to the mainland where the kayaks were loaded onto the trailers for our trip back to Pamlico Sea Base. The scouts learned to appreciate the simple things like “ice�. The kayak trek was a tough trip, but the scouts accomplished their goal together as a troop and gained experiences of a lifetime.

• Prevent buildup of moisture on surfaces and remove standing water to prevent mosquito (and other bug) breeding around the home.

A Crazy Buggy Summer: Tips for Dealing With Home Insect Invasions StatePoint) Spotting more bugs than usual around the house? While a pest problem can cause embarrassment and concern, this summer you can take comfort in the fact that not only are you not alone, there are new ways of dealing with insects that can help you manage the problem without harsh chemicals. “A warm winter and a humid, wet spring set the stage for insect populations to thrive this summer, and that is what people are experiencing right now,” says Dr. Josh Benoit, an entomologist at the University of Cincinnati Department of Biological Sciences. Seconding this sentiment is the National Pest Management Association, which early on, projected that termites, cockroaches, ants, mosquitoes and other insects would thrive in regions nationwide this season. Finding a roach in the home ranked number one in terms of “Grossness,” beating out cleaning the toilet, cleaning the gutters and removing hair from the shower drain, in a recent survey conducted by Zevo, a maker of bug killer sprays and traps that are safe for use around people and pets when used as directed. But beyond the “ew” factor, households will want to manage pest problems for health and safety reasons. “Cockroaches and filth flies can serve as mechanical vectors for diseases,” points out Dr. Benoit. “And ticks, mosquitoes, and kissing bugs can transmit pathogens that cause diseases.” So, what are some smart, safe ways to prevent bug infestations and manage existing ones? Consider these tips to keep bugs in check this summer and beyond: • Keep food sealed and stored properly. Get rid of crumbs around the kitchen or anywhere else you eat around the house. Regularly sweeping and wiping down counters can help.

JAM Special Fabrics, Gifts, and More

• Never bring in unwashed, used furniture and other objects. Before introducing such items into your home, inspect them carefully. • Over 90 percent of people are concerned with having bugs in their home, but almost an equal amount are concerned with using traditional insecticide products, according to a Zevo survey, making sprays that don’t contain harsh chemicals a household essential. Made from friendly ingredients, Zevo Instant Action Spray, for example, features essential oils that target nerve receptors active only in insects, not people or pets. • Bugs often enter homes through garages and open doors. Set up a line of defense by keeping windows, doors and garages closed as much as possible, and by placing chemical-free traps, such as Zevo flying insect traps, in your garage or other areas that get high bug traffic. The traps plug into outlets around the home and use multi-spectrum light technology and a body heat attractant to lure pesky flying bugs to their doom. Though they work 24/7, they are especially effective at night when there are fewer competing light sources. For more information, visit www.zevoinsect.com. Summers are an especially challenging time of year to keep homes insect-free and this year is no exception. Arming yourself with information and effective solutions can help prevent and combat infestations.

Six RCC students earn SECU scholarships Six Randolph Community College students recently received $500 scholarships thanks to the State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU). The recipients were Kaylee Moore (Paramedic Program), Angela Carter (Basic Law Enforcement Training Program), Ethan Garner (BLET), Stephen Grooms (BLET), Nicholas Ingold (BLET), and Brady White (BLET). “This scholarship is truly a blessing for students,” said Regina Brewer, RCC’s Director of Public Safety Programs. “Without it, some would not be able to register for the careers they want to go into.” The SECU Foundation Continuing Education Scholarship Program is designed to remove financial barriers for students seeking to gain new and/or upgrade current job-related skills. Preference will be given to students with limited or no access to financial aid from other programs. Brewer said the funds must be used for students enrolled in short-term training programs 96 hours or more that lead to a state-regulated or industry-recognized credential, such as emergency medical services (EMS), basic law enforcement training (BLET), nursing assistant, machining, welding, HVAC, and electrical. The funds will be awarded once the student(s) earns their certificate(s) to reimburse payments made for registration fees, book costs, certification fees, and course supplies. Recipients must be a U.S. citizen and a North Carolina resident living in the College’s service area. The student must also be in one of the following target groups: unemployment insurance claimants, unemployed or underemployed adults, members of the North Carolina National Guard, or military veterans and spouses. Underemployed is defined as individuals earning 200 percent below the federal poverty level. Directors, employees and family members of an employee of the State Employees’ Credit Union or SECU Foundation are not eligible. Scholarship applications are available in the Continuing Education and Industrial Center office at 413 Industrial Park Avenue. For more information, contact the Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division at 336-633-0268. For a list of RCC’s Continuing Education classes, visit www.randolph.edu/coursesschedules.html.

The Test Every Kid Needs Before Going Back to School

Preparing for the New School Year

(StatePoint) Before schedules get too hectic, experts say that parents should prioritize a visit to the eye doctor this back-to-school season.“An annual comprehensive eye exam is essential for optimal wellness, as well as ensuring your child reaches his or her full academic potential,” says Dr. Jennifer Wademan, VSP network eye doctor.The incidence of visual impairment in preschool children is expected to increase 26 percent over the next 45 years, affecting almost 220,000 children, according to a recent study by the USC Gayle and Edward Roski Eye Institute. What’s more, kids have more demand on their eyes and vision than ever before due to the increased use of digital devices.

(StatePoint) Teachers, students and families busy prepping for the year ahead all know that having the right supplies in and out of the classroom can help pave the way for a successful back-to-school season. With that in mind, consider these ideas to hit the ground running:

To help ensure a smooth transition back-to-school, consider the following tips and insights: Get a Comprehensive Eye Exam While 76 percent of parents said sight is the most important sense, only 50 percent take their kids for an annual eye exam, according to a recent survey conducted by YouGov and VSP Vision Care, with many parents under the incorrect impression that the vision screening conducted by the school nurse or at the pediatrician’s office is sufficient. Although many schools offer abbreviated vision screenings throughout the year, they can miss up to 80 percent of vision problems, including serious conditions like amblyopia (lazy eye), which can lead to vision loss if not treated. An annual comprehensive eye exam is the best way to detect vision problems, as well as other conditions related to the eyes that can affect overall health and wellness. “How a child’s brain processes visual information is complex, and a screening alone isn’t a substitute for a comprehensive exam, nor is it the most reliable way to track a child’s eye health,” says Dr. Wademan. “A comprehensive eye exam with an eye doctor however, evaluates multiple aspects of vision, including the close-up skills essential for reading, tracking and focusing.”

• Math Class: There’s no reason math needs to be your most challenging course. With the right calculator, it can be easy to view how mathematical concepts actually work. For example, the fx-CG500 brings touchscreen technology to the graphing calculator. Its extra-large screen allows for more complete and detailed viewing, and its drag-and-drop functionality enables students to quickly and intuitively pull information from one representation into another. Incorporating standard Natural Textbook Display, along with dropdown menus and a soft keyboard, it’s easy to use, so you can concentrate on what matters -- absorbing the material. • New Kicks: Kids are active and growing quickly, which means their shoes are getting worn out and outgrown regularly. The new school year is a good time of year to take inventory of a child’s shoe collection and to replace sneakers and fashion footwear that no longer fit or aren’t in tip-top shape. This can help students return to school comfortably and ready for anything, from the hallways to the playing fields. • Swift Set-Up: Time is of the essence during the school day and educators know how important swift set-up is. Tools that can help teachers transition between classes or components of a lesson plan are critical. Technology, such as the Superior Series from Casio’s LampFree Projector line-up, can help. Using the Moderator Function, teachers can select a presenter from anywhere in a classroom and project their PC onto the screen. Data, classwork and presentations from students’ devices can be shared via a wireless connection with ease. These features are designed to reduce set-up time in the classroom and keep students focused on the curriculum.

• Ground Control: Parents can keep everyone organized by creating a central location where plans are recorded, notes are written, to-do lists are made and paperwork is organized. Whether it’s in the mud room or kitchen, be sure to select a highly-trafficked location accessible to family members of all heights to reference and update. A wall calendar, paper organizer and chalkboard are Don’t Wait for Complaints Among those parents who do not bring their children to the eye doctor annually, just a few of the items to consider including in this space. 72 percent of moms and 48 percent of dads said they would be motivated to do so if their child complains of discomfort or changes in vision. Don’t wait for that • Get Creative: Learning to play an instrument is a great idea for any student, first complaint! Certain changes to eyesight can happen gradually, and children as it can jump-start creativity, help students learn to focus and problem solve, and has even been associated may not realize that their vision is impaired. with higher test scores. Check out instruments designed to assist in Dr. Wademan points out that catching problems early is important: “When a child’s visual system is not given a clear and focused image, and if his the learning process, such as the or her eyes are not working together, the child could fail to ever achieve normal portable Casio LK-265 Keyboard, which has the potential to open up visual acuity,” she says. “These patients end up struggling to see well in a whole world of music with its 400 adulthood, even with contacts or glasses.” tones and 150 built-in rhythms, including the all-new Dance Music To find an eye doctor near you, visit VSP.com. Mode. Touch-sensitive keys Remember, vision and learning are directly connected, as approximately 80 feature a lighting system to make percent of what a child learns is presented visually. For success in the learning fun, offering a great classroom, the sports field and more, start the school year right with a introduction to music-making. comprehensive eye exam.

Letter To The Editor:

Hi Kevin, I've been reading all of the kind comments and offers of prayers for us and our beloved cat after our very scary accident on the night of July 4th in Brunswick Co. We are very grateful that God chose to bless us and our family in this way.  When we look at the accident report and the pictures, we are astonished that our injuries weren't worse or even fatal.  God is revealing to us daily just how amazing and faithful He is.  

mailto:info3@unitsnc.com

On another happy note, our resilient kitty Chloe has adjusted to being back home and is enjoying her new-found fame. We suspect that she has been contemplating hiring a publicity agent, but we are afraid to ask.  To clear up some confusion, we believe that Chloe remained in the car the entire time.  She was in a pet carrier, but it was damaged during the accident and she went into what she perceived as a safe spot (under the seat).  She travels with us frequently and is used to being alone in the car for a few minutes at a time, knowing we will come right back.  Our accident happened around 9:45 at night.  We don't know when the car was towed to the tow yard 20+ miles away, but the tow truck driver discovered a cat in our car the next morning.  She was turned over to local law enforcement, transferred to the local animal shelter, and through our extended family members making phone calls and posting on social media, our sweet cat was reunited with our son and daughter-in-law later that afternoon.  She appears to be fine and we believe the ordeal is but a distant memory for her.   Again, we have been so encouraged by the outpouring of love shown to us by our community.  Chatham and Randolph Counties have been home to my family for generations and Barry has been here for over 37 years.  Brunswick County law enforcement and EMS were very quick to come to our rescue and their consideration of us and attention to our injuries was beyond measure.  But there's "no place like home" and we have been reminded once again why we continue to make our home here in the best place in the world.   With a grateful heart, Dacia Hayes
