ful. “It’ s a medical issue,” Quebedeaux explained. “It needs to be handled in a hospital setting.” In the program, the patient would be admitted into the hospital j ust as anyone else with any other ailment. Once there, they will be under the supervision of a medical doctor and nursing staff. The patient’ s stay would last from 3 – 5 days and N ew V ision offers assistance getting into a continued care recovery program, such as long-term detox, inpatient and outpatient rehab, an important ‘ next step’ for anyone trying to rehabilitate. It is also easier to be accepted by a long-term facility if a person has gone through a detox program. Persons addicted to alcohol, benzoids, or opioids, may q ualify for the program and most insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare will pay for the treatment. MRHS is also an Oklahoma medical provider, extending their coverage area – there are only two other N ew V ision programs in Arkansas, one in V an Buren and one in Searcy. According to ehabs.com, “ eto ification is the first phase of substance abuse recovery. It involves a period of time after your last drink that you dedicate to ridding all of the alcohol or toxins in your body so that you can begin treatment with a clean slate. As detox progresses, withdrawal symptoms may become life-threatening, so professional medical monitoring is often necessary in many cases of abuse and dependency. Once you are clean, recovery can begin.” “That could include Alcoholics Anonymous, counseling, or a long-term rehabilitation center,” said Quebedeaux. “People are starting to see how important this is,” he added. “We are excited to have the program.” The N ew V ision program hopes to begin accepting patients on August 2 9 .

E llison said there are many rural communities out there similar to Polk County and many counties that also contain large amounts of federal land and timberlands. “It is very beneficial and they had very good spea ers, said llison. e said the best of the sessions he attended focused on how to get employs engaged. E llison took a trip last year on behalf of AAC was able to speak with legislators and their staff about important topics such as PILT ( payment in lieu of taxes) and Secure Rural Schools. Asked if he feels he is able to help make an impact in those instances, E llison smiled and said, “We got PILT.” “I believe it is important that rural counties across the nation have a voice in policy decisions that affect all of us. I am honored that our state association has enough confidence to select me, and pay my travel expenses, to represent Arkansas, at the weekend conference. It was a very good educational opportunity that broadened my view of possibilities here at home.”

s school begins, along with volleyball and football, cross country will get started at schools around the county. Mena Cross Country coach, Randy Peters, is looking forward to the upcoming season, “We have lost some runners, but we have a lot coming back this next year. We will have more athletes out running than we have in a long he annual Bearcat Red & Black scrimmage time at Mena.” While solid runners like Clint Buck have graduated, Coach Peters believes that the future for Bearcat Cross has been moved from Friday, August 18th Country is bright. “Our most experienced varsity runner will be Robert McIntyre, which he competed well last year and had to Thursday, August 17th at 6:00 p.m. at Bearcat the opportunity to go to Australia to run. He will be a big piece. On the girls side, Alex Harper is an 8th grader and she is up Stadium and coming. She is a great runner and I think she won every meet except for one last year.” Last year, Mena and Acorn hosted the Mena-Acorn Lions Club Cross Country Invitational for the first time. “Coach Wilsey and I both thought it was successful last year and we wanted to make it a regular race and so we are bringing it back this year.” Mena competed well at the race last year, finishing 2nd overall. This year several schools In answer to the articles submitted by The Hatfield Church of Christ, “The have been invited to come run including Mt. Ida, DeQueen, Booneville, Caddo Hills, and several others. In addition to the Invitational, Mena will use the Lions Club as a practice Truth Will Set You Free”, indeed it will, but do you know the WHOLE truth? course throughout the fall. The first race of the season for Mena is September 9th at Millions upon millions are doomed to Hell! A while back you wrote, “ChrisMagazine. In addition to the race at the Lions Club, Mena will also compete twice at tians do not have a Sabbath” - well they don’t call it that. Acorn, making it easier for supporters to cheer on the Bearcats and Ladycats.

Here we go again - - -

The Bible was written for ALL to read. The Commandments to obey. The fourth Commandment is “Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy.” It is in the Bible 180 times that God declared the seventh day to be the day of worship and rest, not the first day of the week. Hundreds of years ago the Romans decided to change that day. They (the Vatican) believe they are “God on Earth”, that they have the right to change God’s law. No one does! They say we go to church on Sunday. God says we go to church on Saturday. Who are you going to obey? Those who continue to to use Sunday (the millions upon millions) as their day of worship, knowing that God made it Saturday, will be following Satan’s rule, not God’s, and will be doomed to Hell! Yes, you cause your own final destination - WAKE UP PEOPLE! Woe to the preachers leading people astray! The word “Sabbath” is the Israeli word for Saturday. God’s days run from sundown to sundown, not midnight to midnight. The Sabbath is sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. You, and all in your household are to do no work. You are to keep the time holy. Attend church, take nature walks, visit the sick or shut-ins, have Bible study with your family, etc. It is God’s day of worship and rest. No where in the Bible does it say God approves, condones, accepts or allows the change of His Sabbath to Sunday! Woe be to the those who thought they had the right to do so! Here are some of the 180 times: Genesis 1:1, 2:2-3 Exodus 2:17, 20:1 & 8-11, 31:13, 17 Deuteronomy 4:2, 9:10 Psalm 89:34 Proverbs 30:5-6 Isaiah 56:2,6,7 58:13-14 66:22-23 Ezekiel 20:12,20 22:26, 28, 31 46:1 Daniel 7:25 Matthew 12:8 15:6,9 24:20 Mark 2:27 7:7-13 15:37,42

Sundermans Celebrate Anniversary

#LOL Mrs. Jones had been a staple of her local congregation for many years and that is why her absence was noticed lately. The pastor decided to drop by her house to check up on her after the Sunday service. He knocked on her door and being that she’s nearly 85 it took her a bit to get to the door. “Hello, who is it?” she asked. “It’s Pastor Smith”, he answered. “OH Hi-Come in, Come in, how’s the ministry doing?” She said. “Very well, I just wanted to make sure your prayer needs are being met.” “Oh honey, I haven’t felt well lately but I’m getting better” Just then the phone rang and she excused herself to get it. The pastor sat near a table with an old reader’s digest and a bowl of peanuts. After 15 minutes, then 20, he heard his stomach growl and began to get restless. He started in on the bowl of peanuts and began reading. After 45 minutes, he suddenly realized that he had eaten all of the peanuts. Right then Mrs. Jones returned and said, “Oh I sure am sorry, that was my sister from Pittsburgh. She only calls once per month so when she does we have to catch up on everything.” The pastor feeling a little embarrassed said “I must also apologize, for while you were gone I got hungry and ate all the peanuts in your little bowl there. Please, forgive me” he said. Mrs. Jones replied, “Oh that’s ok, without my teeth, all I can do is just suck the chocolate off of them!” she says.

child who reads will be an adult who thinks. Reading is more than j ust glancing at words on a page. Reading is about being educated, being transformed, and changing the way people think. Those who read are also normally the ones that lead. Colby Singleton, literacy teacher at Acorn, is teaching students to think and helping them access a whole new world through reading. Colby grew up in a world of education, her mom a school teacher and her dad a superintendent, so it is not hard to believe that she would be a teacher as wellâ&#x20AC;Śe xcept that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t her plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;E veryone in my family was in education, my grandparents, my parents, I never thought I would be a teacher. I went to college and wasn t even studying to be a teacher, e plains Colby. After graduating from atfield ublic Schools, Colby attended Ar ansas Tech niversity to pursue a degree in Agri Business and re eterinarian. She didn t seriously consider teaching until coming home for a summer, while she was helping with AWAN A and teaching kids at church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I asked my mom one day, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; Do you think I could teach? â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She supported that and I went to school to meet with an education advisor. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t sure what I would teach and the advisor asked me what I enj oyed doing and I told her I loved to read. She said I should be a literacy teacher and the rest is history,â&#x20AC;? says Colby with a smile. Currently Colby teaches for Ouachita School District at the Acorn Campus, but when her teaching j ourney began, she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t sure if she would ever be in ol County. While finishing at Ar ansas Tech, she completed her student teaching at Western ell County. earing the end of her student teaching she was approached about staying on to teach. Within a couple weeks of accepting the j ob, Colby married her husband ary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just li e that, within a couple of wee s I finished student teaching, received a ob offer, and got married. It was a busy time, Colby says laughing. At the time they lived in Russellville and Gary drove to work in Clarksville and Colby would drive to the school to teach. After teaching for a year, Colby received an opportunity to move closer to home and she received an offer at e ueen ublic Schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really en oyed my time at e ueen, some of my favorite students were there. In the school, there was such a diversity of so many people from so many backgrounds. One of the things I did while I was there was teach E SL [ E nglish as a Second Language] for four years, I learned a lot about diversity during that time and it really shaped me.â&#x20AC;? Colby taught at e ueen for five years before receiving the opportunity to teach at Mena Middle School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really loved teaching literacy to middle school students, they are still so wide eyed and have a desire to do well. If we can establish a love for reading in middle school students, it is something they will carry with them forever,â&#x20AC;? remarks Colby. While Colby was teaching at Mena, she felt od leading her into a new teaching adventure in high school literacy and there was an opportunity at Acorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was en oying what I was do ing, but I felt that od had placed a new mission in front of me. It was difficult at first, but teaching high school has been so fun and such a rewarding time. C.S. Lewis once said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We read to know we are not alone.â&#x20AC;? Reading gives perspective. Sometimes this perspective is understanding what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; s like to be in the shoes of someone else as you read history, or it may give a lens by which to view the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that my j ob as a literacy teacher is to make reading relevant. There will never be a time again in their lives that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t need to read and reading shows them the diversity that is around them. Colby reali es that in a world of short attention spans, her ob is to ma imize the time she has with students and teach them to be better writers and readers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So often students feel like reading or writing has nothing to do with their lives. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ve explained to our students before that they may be in an accident one day and if they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t write well then they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t possibly give a good account to police. That is what I love, helping make a difference and showing students that this will affect the rest of their lives. Like many adults, Colby had teachers growing up that greatly impacted her and her love for reading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can still see and remember Ms. elen ong, my second grade teacher, and all the books she ever read to us. Teachers like her and others helped establish my love for reading.â&#x20AC;? Reading and writing not only is necessary for so many things done in life, but they can provide an escape, a place to go and relax even if your location has never changed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have never once regretted becoming a literacy teacher, I have loved what I have done. If we can help students catch a passion for reading, it will never be some thing they regret.â&#x20AC;?

The local lodge in Mena, the allas Masonic odge 128, see s to serve the community through charitable contribution and the development of men. The origins of the Masons is un nown, but it is certain that the fraternity has been around for centuries.

The original school at allas was funded by the Masons, along with the salaries of the teachers at the time. At the time when the odge chartered, membership dues were 10, a big investment at that time. The Masons have three precepts that the men live and operate by riendship, morality, and brotherly love. The Masons are a non profit charitable brotherhood of men see ing to ma e a difference in the community in more ways than one. on avis, current rand Master of the odge, e plains one of the ways they ma e a difference, “ ur goal is to ma e good men better. ou can t ma e a bad man a good man, but you can ma e a good man a better man. In order to become a member of the Masons, one must as one to become one. Men interested in the Masons must petition and then they are accepted after a lengthy process. “We ta e the process seriously about who becomes a member because we only want the right men representing our brotherhood and our community. We have had 14 .S residents that were Masons and many of the signers of the Constitution. This brotherhood has also been filled by good men and we want that to continue, e plains Terry ru uay. allas Masonic odge 128 has played a significant part in community growth in the history of Mena. “Many of the founders of Mena who helped build the community were Masons, says usty. The Masons have helped invest into the community with charitable giving, but also literally, as the cornerstone of the ol County Court ouse has their seal. There are records that can be found in the odge s archives that point to decades of faithful service in different capacities in the community. “There are several things that we do that people don t now about and we are o ay with that. We ust want to help out where we can and we don t mind if nobody nows, says on. ne area that everyone may be familiar with the Mason s charitable contributions are the annual scholarships given away by the group. ecently, the local Masons hosted their annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser, which helps fund their charitable giving. “Seeing that one of the biggest things we want to do is educate and help men become better men, we want to give resources to those who are wor ing diligent to better themselves through education, e plains on. istory would show that many great men have come from Masonry, including the founders of our great country. “We believe that the precepts we see to live by, if lived OWNER - JASON MILES by everyone, our country would be better off.
