JCCC Million Dollar Showdown Golf Outing The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual Million Dollar Showdown Golf Outing at Green Hills Golf Club on August 31. Thirty-six teams participated in this event and completely packed the golf course. Sixteen of the 36 teams were corporate sponsors this year. Tee-off was at 10:30 a.m. Friday morning and the day wrapped up around 4 p.m. with an awards ceremony in the clubhouse. Trophies and prizes were given for first and second place in three flights, along with men’s long putt; men’s closest to the pin; lady’s long putt; and lady’s closest to the pin. The ‘showdown’ portion of the day was literally a chance to win one-million dollars. Five

of the players that day earned a chance to shoot for a holein-one that could earn them the million dollar prize if made. On top of the 16 corporate sponsors, Crossroads Community Hospital was the showdown sponsor and Legence Bank sponsored lunch and all of the golf carts. More than 50 Chamber businesses sponsored beverage stations, 19th hole and donated 50/50 and door prizes. Winners of the flights are listed below. A Flight: First Place, Edwards Jones; Second Place, Community First Bank. B Flight: First Place, Legence Bank; Second Place, Villani & Johnson Law Group. C Flight: First Place, MG Foley; Second Place, A Pocket Full of Sunshine.

really led by anyone. That's a big part of their problem: All they really do is focus their utter contempt on Trump. He's constantly making that easy for them. With the latest legal setbacks for Trump and his cartel, the Trump enemies cling to the hope that he'll somehow be run out of office. However, their mood darkens the moment they review their track record. Trump is, after all, president of the United States, a concept they couldn't even fathom until he had pulled it off, leaving them in the dust of despair. "How could this happen?" they wailed. Let us count the ways: For starters, there was the elitist candidate, Hillary Clinton, whose qualifications were so superior to Trump's that it shouldn't have been a contest for her, except she appeared to place herself so much higher — I believe "high and mighty" is the phrase — that she really couldn't relate to the rabble below, the ones she called "deplorables." When the effete suffered the agony of defeat, they zoomed

right into the Kubler-Ross stages of grief: Their first stop was denial, as in "This is just a bad dream." When they woke up to realize that the nightmare was here to stay, they settled on anger. That lasted until their first latte of the morning-after. Then it was on to the bargaining stage, as in "I need to understand this, so it never happens again." Unfortunately, they are not really that good at introspection, so when they desperately tried to relate to all those put off by their pretentiousness, they scurried to their Kindles and read "Hillbilly Elegy" so they could comprehend the motivations of the millions of Trumpsters. After that, they felt that they had done all they needed to do to comprehend what makes the bourgeoisie tick. Then they returned to their safe spaces. By the way, "Hillbilly Elegy" is about a grossly dysfunctional Appalachian family. It had nothing to do with the mass of Americans who were so fed up and frightened that they voted for Donald Trump

because he convinced them he was not part of the corrupt establishment. Many of the anti-Trump forces are stuck in the depression phase. Other than their protest rallies, they sulk in their bubbles. They'll never move to acceptance, the final stage. The question is whether they'll overcome their usual complacency and actually condescend to vote in November. If they do not and decide that Trump is in such trouble that control of Congress will be a cakewalk, they'll get another pie in the face. Their dreams of rescue by Bob Mueller will be dashed. Donald Trump will stay in office. They, in short, will have blown it. To quote Charles Dickens one more time, "the spring of hope" will become "the winter of despair."

EAGLE LIFE

Ministries by: Cliff Sanders

with no hope of returning. Mark Twain said, “There are two things certain in life — taxes and death.” The most vital question is, “Where will you spend eternity after you die?” Jesus taught a lot on the afterlife. In Luke 16:29-31 Jesus gave a parable of a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus. The rich man, “was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But the beggar . . . was full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table.” Eventually they both died. Lazarus went to Paradise or “Abraham’s Bosom.” The rich man went to Hades, where he was tor-

A Message From Hell My sister and brother-inlaw have been to “Hell and back.” One winter, to escape some of the frigid cold and snow of North Dakota, they took a luxury cruise to the Cayman Islands. Along the way they visited a small village called Hell. My sister sent me a postcard with the postmark of Hell and wrote a message from Hell, “We’ve been to Hell. It is hot here, so we are coming back.” Fortunately, my sister and brother-in-law had a roundtrip ticket back home to North Dakota. The Word of God reveals that heaven is real and so is hell. Those who travel to hell have a one-way ticket

5. From Exodus 20, how many days shalt thou labor and do all thy work? Two, Four, Six, Seven 6. Proverbs 14:23 states, "In all labor there is" ...? Love, Hope, Light, Profit

The Shoppers Weekly – Mt. Vernon Area mented in the flames of hell. He ultimately pleaded with “Father Abraham” to send someone to warn his five brothers of the awful reality of hell. Consider some truths that Jesus taught on the afterlife in Luke 16. DEATH IS CERTAIN TO ALL. Rich or poor, young or old, all have an appointment with death. No amount of money can redeem us from death and the pit. We have a vivid description in Psalm 49:10-12, 13-20. DECISIONS MADE IN THIS LIFE DETERMINE YOUR DESTINY. “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement.” (Hebrews 9:2728) Lazarus suffered in this life but he lived in the hope

of heaven. He was escorted into heaven by angels. The rich man lived only for himself, with no thought or love for God. He woke up tormented in hell. Only faith in Christ can save you. (Ephesians 2:8-10) DESTINATIONS OF THE AFTERLIFE ARE FOREVER. Lazarus was comforted for eternity. (John 3:16) I recently saw this post on Facebook, “When death one day comes for me, I shall go with a smile on my face, a hallelujah on my lips, and no fear in my heart; as my God will be coming for me and where I will be going, no more troubles will I see.” Jesus assured us of the glories and the way to heaven. (John 14:1-6) The rich man died and

woke up in the horrible agonies of Hades or Hell. He ordered Abraham to send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool his tongue. (Luke 16:24-25) Jesus warned that the terrors and suffering of hell is forever. (Mark 9:44, 48) DISPATCHES FROM HELL ARE NOT POSSIBLE. The rich man asked, “Father Abraham” to send someone from the dead to warn his five brothers of hell. He was told that there was a great chasm between heaven and hell and it was impossible to cross over from one place to another. He was told if they did not believe Moses or the prophets, they would not be per-

suaded though one would rise from the dead. Jesus did arise from the dead, victorious over death, hell, and the grave. Heaven and hell are real. It’s not enough to know about Jesus, you must personally know him as Savior and Lord. For one day every person must stand before him and give account for their life on earth. “For if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) Shalom, Cliff Sanders Eagle Life Ministries eagleslife8@gmail.com

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With your Arian charm quotient at an almost all-time high this week, plus all the facts to back you up, you just might win over the last doubters to your proposal. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might be in line for that job change you applied for. But be advised that you could be called on to defend your qualifications against supporters of other applicants. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new approach to an old idea is one way to get beyond that workplace impasse. No such problems in your personal life, where things continue to flow smoothly. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be more forthcoming about your feelings concerning a proposed change either in your workplace or in your personal life. Your opinions are valuable. Don’t keep them hidden. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A changing situation in your life needs more patience than you appear to be willing to offer. Allowing it to develop at its own pace is the wisest course you can take at this time. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With more stability in your life -- on both personal and professional levels -- this could be a good time to strengthen relationships with both friends and colleagues. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) People have always relied on your integrity not only to get the job done,

but to get it done right. So don’t be pressured by anyone into cutting corners to save time. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) While others might get rattled over unexpected changes, your ability to adapt calmly and competently helps you make a positive impression during a crucial period. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A changing environment might be daunting for some, but the adventurous Sagittarian takes it all in stride. A friend from the past could awaken some meaningful memories. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With your self-assurance rising to full strength, the bold Goat should feel confident about opening up to new ventures as well as new relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Reaching out to someone who has been unkind to you might not be easy. But in the long run it will prove to have been the right thing to do. A friend offers moral support. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your keen insight once again helps you work through a seemingly insoluble problem in your workplace. The weekend offers a good chance to develop new relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a knack for finding details that others would overlook. You would make a fine research scientist. © 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.
