Mock Crash

Buster Brown McFarland

Buster’s birthday wish BY WILLIAM G. MCFARLAND Three years ago Buster Brown McFarland visited the Tri-City with some “dog� comments about the Gibson – North Relay for Life. At that time he had lost his friend Lela, Mama Charlotte Anglin’s dog, to cancer. Lela and he exchanged barks everyday. He also told all of us that April 20th was his birthday. Buster continues to like people food instead of dog food. He stated that see page 12

DEADLY SCENE - Real emergency personnel work to extract ‘DUI crash victims’ from a vehicle as the ‘driver’ looks on. The Mock Crash was held at Gibson County High School last Tuesday with student actors from within the county portraying the drunk driver as well as victims of the crash. Members of the senior class watch the deadly scene. Seniors were asked to sign a ‘Prom Promise’ which states they will not drink and drive on prom night. This is the sixth year for the event which is an effort to deter underage drinking and driving. (photo by GCHS Publications class)

Countywide crash drama held at GCHS prior to prom time A mock DUI crash was held at Gibson County High School Tuesday, April 12. The crash was a staged event that used real vehicles and actors. Emergency personnel (air evacuation, police, fire, ambulance, etc.) responded to the scene as if it were real. The mock crash is conducted for the seniors only around prom time in April to raise awareness of the dangerous effect of drinking and driving. Seniors were asked to sign a ‘Prom Promise’ which states that they will not drink and drive on prom night. The GCHS prom will be held on April 30th at the high school. Gibson County Coordinated School Health coordinators developed a countywide Mock Crash Drama Team who acts in each event. Three sophomore students from each district in Gibson County were trained to participate in the simulated crash. Gibson County Sheriff Chuck Arnold was the guest speaker. Arnold addressed the junior and senior class immediately after the event. The purpose is to reiterate the reality and possible consequences of drinking and driving. “Sheriff Arnold was one of the best speakers I’ve heard,� said GCSD Coordinated School Health

Director Kellie Carroll. “He gave a real, personal message. It was phenomenal. One thing he told the kids was, ‘Don’t make me have to knock on your parents door.’ It was a softer, more caring side of the Sheriff’s Department. He told them drinking and driving could affect people they don’t even know. He told them people in their communities they don’t know want to keep them safe and care about them. I received positive feedback from the faculty and students. One student said it made him think about the way he treats his parents and it had nothing to do with drinking and driving. I will ask him to speak again.� The mock crash would not have been possible without the help and participation of the following: GCHS faculty member Kay McEwen, Derrick Norman and students, GCHS counselors, SRO Rhonda Bonds, Alisha Howell’s Publication class, Gibson County Mock Crash Drama Team, Dyer Police Department, Dyer Fire Department, Sheriff Chuck Arnold, Gibson County Sheriff’s Department, Gibson County Emergency Response Services, Trenton Housing Authority, Brad Russom-Russom Motors, Dale‘s Recycling who provided cars, Hospital Wings and all community partners in Gibson County.

Insight & Opinion Has the Easter bonnet disappeared?

Clayburn Peeples reports: Sometime in 1917, Irving Berlin wrote a sappy song about a girl back home waiting for her soldier boyfriend to return from fighting in World War I. Berlin, a tremendously patriotic man, hoped the song would improve morale here on the home front. He called the song, “Smile and Show Your Dimple.” Smile and show your dimple You’ll find it very simple You can think of something comical In a very little while. It sold well enough, but after November, 1918, no one was interested in a war time song, so Berlin put it aside for the next 15 years. Then, in 1933, he was writing songs for a Broadway musical called, As Thousands Cheer, in which he was trying to bring a morning newspaper to life on stage. Each song in the play represented a page of

the paper. The song “Heat Wave”, for example, was a song for the weather page. Most of the other pages came easily, but Berlin was stumped as to what to do about the rotogravure page. That was the page in papers that had pictures on it that were almost, but not quite, photographs. What Berlin wanted to do, was come up with an oldfashioned sounding song for the rotogravure page that featured New York’s Fifth Avenue. He tried writing a couple of numbers, but neither sounded right. Then, he remembered his old World War I song, “Smile and Show Your Dimple.” Why not, he reasoned, stop trying to write a “new” oldfashioned song, and use a real one instead. So he got the song out, changed the lyrics and turned the old patriotic ditty into a song about the annual Easter

Parade on Fifth Avenue. In your Easter Bonnet With all the frills upon it You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade. Today, many people don’t know that there once was a Fifth Avenue Easter Parade, and that it was a really, really big deal. It all started shortly after the Civil War. Prior to then, churches hadn’t recognized Easter Sunday as a special holiday, but in the early 1870’s, Easter, which had become known then as the “Sunday of Joy,” became a perfect opportunity for mothers, widows and daughters who had been wearing dark and depressing mourning clothes since the war to use the occasion as a time to begin wearing colorful hats, fancy clothing and elaborate corsages on Easter to signify the change. Churches followed suit and began decorating their sanctuaries and grounds to the hilt with elaborate Easter floral displays, and every year the displays, hats and dresses became more and more elaborate, and to the masses, examples of style and taste. And after church on Easter Sunday, members of the various New York churches would stroll from one sanctuary to another, ostensibly to check out the

Dear Editor, Government is necessary to a civilized society and taxes are necessary to Government. However, unrestricted government will naturally grow until it consumes more than the producing private sector can support. Our federal government is now spending far more than our private sector can possibly be taxed. If government was able to extract from the private sector what it is now spending, America would financially collapse practically overnight. Buyers of our huge

amounts of debt are drying up and currently the FED is simply creating the money out of thin air to buy the debt and this will only cause inflation and prolong the inevitable collapse unless spending is reduced dramatically and soon. It is proven that regardless of tax rates approximately 20 percent of the gross domestic product is the maximum that can be gleaned from even an economically healthy private sector. With current revenues of approximately 2 trillion dollars and a budget of 3.6 trillion we have a very serious problem.

“We will add approximately 80,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space to the present structure,” Hillard said, “and expect to start construction within 30 days. It will be finished by the year’s end.” 50 YEARS AGO APRIL 20, 1961 The Mason Hall students, Jeannie Turner, Sarah Smith and Carolyn Sims, were awarded State Homemakers degrees at the FHA meeting of the Obion Sub-district held recently in Kenton. Judy Maxwell, of Dyer, has been elected President of the Trenton Sub-district Future Homemakers of America. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Guy Maxwell.

Complete service was not available until 2a.m. Tuesday. The Dyer clean-up, paintup and fix-up committee will try again next Saturday to paint the Boy Scout building at the rear of the high school. The building was to have been painted last Saturday to emphasize the clean-up project but it was too wet to put the paint on.

developed that Easter was the date to change from winter to spring clothes; those who could afford them, bought new ones. But by the 1960’s, we had become so prosperous that new clothes could be purchased several times a year, not just once in the spring and once in the fall, and slowly but surely, Easter became less and less of a fashion event to the point that no one notices the day much from a clothing standpoint. Some people think that’s good, and maybe it is. But I remember what Easter Sunday was like when I was a teenager. It sure was nice to see all the girls in those pretty dresses. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything. Wonder if there’s some sort of message there?

decline to the point it now consists of people wearing outrageous, springtime versions of Halloween costumes in front of a smattering of spectators. And what of the famous “Easter Bonnet” of Berlin’s song? Has it also disappeared? Not completely, but it too, along with new Easter dresses and gloves, has faded from the culture. There was a time, not too long ago, when nearly every woman wore a hat to church, a new one, if she could afford it, on Easter. There was a time when everyone who could afford new clothes on Easter, wore them. In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare has Mercutio taunting Benvolio for falling out with a tailor over having worn “. . .his new doublet before Easter.” In America, the tradition

various floral displays, but undoubtedly to show off their own finery as well. Before long, people were lining the streets to witness the spectacle. Every year more and more came, and by the end of the 1870’s the “Easter Parade” was a major New York festival. Drygoods merchants, milliners, candy and greeting card companies got into the act, and by 1900, Easter was as big a retail season as Christmas was. The Easter Parade, buoyed by Berlin’s song and the eponymous 1948 Fred Astaire movie, remained a huge event through the middle of the 20th Century, often drawing more than a million spectators, a spectacular example of American prosperity. But by the 60’s it had began a slow, inexorable,

In today’s struggling economy increasing the tax rates will likely result in lower revenues. Extreme taxes on the high income people simply don’t work because they begin leaving for friendlier tax environments. This is called voting with your feet. Many of these high earners can incorporate in other domiciles or move to places such as Argentina, Brazil, Coast Rica, Panama, or a dozen other places to protect their earnings exactly the same as G.E. has just done and as a result paid no taxes at all. These people are the entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors. They are the job creators, not politicians. If the top one percent income earners who now pay 38 percent of the tax revenues are taxed even more and begin leaving, America will lose revenue and most likely jobs as well.

Three men charged in break in, theft at Dyer Little General Three men have been arrested and charged with burglary, theft and vandalism for a break in at the Little General store in Dyer. On April 14th at approximately 1:53 a.m. Dyer Police Department responded to a 911 call from Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Denson’s residence at 232 South Main in reference to someone, possibly kids, trying to break in or vandalize the property. Upon arrival patrolman David Paschall did notice that the Little General store had been burglarized and had dispatch notify Assistant Chief Rodney Wilkins and Lt. Knott Bailey of the incident. Dyer police officers, along with the assistance of Rutherford Police and several deputies from the Gibson County Sheriff’s Department searched the area and found three individuals at a residence on Linden Street matching the description given by the Densons. A search of the property found several items of clothing stashed in a bush in the back yard and a garbage bag with cartons of cigarettes and cigars near the property line in a field. At this time the three individuals, Thomas Sherry, Marcus Mitchell and Zachary Powell, were determined as suspects to the break in and

taken to the Dyer Police Department where they were interviewed and interrogated about the incident. Statements as to each individual’s role in the incident were taken. Two of the individuals involved in the incident are possible suspects to another crime committed two days earlier at the parts store and the grain company. The suspects did show Dyer officers where the remaining evidence was left

and were transported to the Gibson County Correctional Complex. They are being held on charges of burglary, theft and vandalism. Chief Brad Lindsey would like to give a special thanks to the Densons for their citizen awareness and the quick response of all agencies involved in the apprehension of individuals. “It’s teamwork like this that is much needed and appreciated in the fight on crime today,” said Lindsey.

Scripture Ref: Isaiah 43:15-18 Matt. 25: 22-23 Matt: 25:35 “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was

Pharmacy & Your Health Treatments for this Debilitating Condition Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a condition of the neurologic system. Tremors, slowed movement, and inflexibility occur. A loss of a transmitter chemical known as dopamine leads to a breakdown of connections in the brain and the characteristic symptoms of the condition. Persons with the condition experience tremors at rest, which typically become progressively more apparent over time. The tremor typically begins in the hand, and then spreads to the other side over the next several years. A decreased ability to use the fingers to accomplish daily tasks occurs. Stiffness and pain in the joints may occur. Treatment options for PD include levodopa, dopamine agonists, and medications called COMT inhibitors. Levodopa is converted to dopamine in the brain and can help with the tremor and rigidity of PD. Levodopa is often taken in combination with carbidopa (Sinemet) to decrease side effects. Bromocriptine (Parlodel), pramipexole (Mirapex), and ropinirole (Requip) are dopamine agonists, which act by stimulating dopamine receptors, and thereby improve the balance of dopamine in the brain. Tolcapone (Tasmar) and entacapone (Comtan) are COMT inhibitors, and work when taken with levodopa. They may extend and improve the effects of levodopa.

For our Wednesday evening service our minister. Brother Corey Meggs led in prayer and praise time. Our Chairman of Deacons, Wallace Alford conducted our monthly business meeting. Brother Corey continued the study of growing spiritually. We looked at the church, the context of spiritual growth. If we are to grow in Christ, it should be a group project. We receive blessings in church we cannot get elsewhere. Saturday morning, we had lots of fun delivering the GPS, God’s Plan for Sharing. This is a state wide project. On a beautiful Sunday morning we were blessed to hear the Adult Easter Cantata, “The King is Coming� presented by New Hope Choir under the direction of our capable minister of music, Brother Terry Owens. Solos were presented by Amy Powell and Scarlett Russell. Brother Corey continued the thought of our coming King with a dynamic sermon entitled “Are You ready for the King?� taken from 2nd Kings: 13-18. He advised all to not only get ready, but continually be

ready! I think we all were blessed with glory bumps galore. Sunday evening Brother Corey’s message was “Lessons Saul never learned,� from 1 Samuel 15. They are 1. Sin is serious, 2. Spiritual decline is gradual, 3. Integrity is essential, 4. Obedience is necessary, and 5. We need to fill our lives with spiritual things. We celebrated the baptism of Ethan Goad. Many visitors attended both morning and evening services who are always our honored guests. Boys and girls, remember our Easter Egg hunt next Saturday, April 23 from 2 to 3 p.m. for grades 5 and younger. Sunday morning we host a community wide Easter Sunrise Service at 7 a.m. Come join us. Remember those on our prayer list and Brother Jerry Legg as he travels to Japan on a mission trip. Joke of the day, A minister was leaving a church going to another. One of his parish told him, Brother, I’m sorry you are leaving. Wd never knew what sin was till you came.

Golden Agers Eighteen Golden Agers and guest Tommy McKnight met Wednesday, April 6 for a special morning of prayer organized by President Jerry Legg. As a part of GPS (God’s Plan for Sharing) throughout the county, the morning’s emphasis was prayer for students and teachers of Dyer, Yorkville, Rutherford and Gibson County schools. With Michael Barnett, minister of Youth and children of Dyer FBC Driving the bus and Pastor Brother DeWayne Goodgine directing the prayers, the group prayed on site of 2 of the schools for God’s direction in people’s lives especially as Easter celebration approaches. Preparation had been made earlier for the prayer time with a devotional at Dyer FBC with Alice Ernest and Anne Thompson sharing pianist duties, Shirley Shull and Kenneth McEwen led the group in singing “Heaven Came Down� and “Sunshine in my soul� and Kenny sang, “He touched

Shirley Hooper

By Alice Ernest

Me.� Brother Barnett brought the devotional of the morning, he chose the prayer challenges of James 5:113-18 for his text. His emphases included not just praying as a routine activity and real praying in a prayer chain not letting it be a gossip chain. To reveal prayer’s effectiveness, he told the story of a missionary’s staying outside of town in a tent in a dangerous area overnight. Two guys made plans to rob the missionary, at the same time in the missionary’s home church, a deacon felt compelled to pray for the missionary and he assembled the other deacons to share in praying. When the would-be robbers came to the tent, they saw, 12 men in the tent when the missionary was really alone. The next day one of the potential robbers revealed to the missionary his plans and his realization the God had protected the missionary. God does answer prayers.

Bethpage By Joyce Brown Our hearts go out to all those across the country who suffered the destruction of such strong storms over the weekend. All our family is safe this morning and we pray that yours is as well. We had a wonderful crowd for services Sunday at Bethpage. Two of our ladies had birthdays last week so we sang to Ann Griggs and Wanda Smithson. Tina & Janice played the beautiful “Jesus, Name Above All Names� to set the tone for worship. Call to worship was “This is the Day� and our welcome hymn was “Lily of the Valley.� Special music was a harmonica and vocal version of “Grace Greater Than All My Sins� by Charles Perryman. The offertory piece was “For Those Tears I Died.� Bro. James commented on the fact that he did not know that song, but how appropriate it is for the upcoming Easter weekend. His sermon text was James 5:7-12 titled “What Everyone Needs� with the focus on attitude adjustments. Look up that text and see if you can find four things we need to adjust our attitudes about. Our evening sermon was from 2 Tim 1:7-11. Bro. James title was “God Has Not Because He Has.� I was a bit puzzled with the title, but he explained it well. Congratulations to Emily Littleton as she will be receiving her degree in nursing from Jackson State this weekend. We are so proud of you, Emily for the hard work you have done to achieve this and know it will serve you well in your future. Our GPS team was out in the community Saturday distributing invitations to all our neighbors to attend

North Union We had a really great day at church today. We had several visitors and the weather was great, so what more could we want? The Lord blessed us with His presence as we gathered to worship and praise Him in song and the sharing of the Word. Robert Whitley gave our morning announcements with his usual humorous flair. Robert will also be leading our Bible study on Wednesday. Linda Carmoney shared the true meaning of Easter with the children. Her Easter basket contained eggs that each held a symbol of Easter such as a cross, three nails, and a stone. The last egg was empty and signified Christ’s empty tomb. Connie Cooper sang “Why� as the music special. The words of the song expressed the significance of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Bro. Don’s message focused on the “Decisions from the Three Crosses.�He discussed rejection,

some church somewhere this Sunday and you will be welcome to be with us at Bethpage if that is your choice. You are invited to come early as we will be having our Sunrise Service to celebrate our “SonRise� which sealed our eternity for all who believe on Christ. It starts at 7 a.m. Easter morning and we will be serving breakfast foods following the service. Then our Pastor and Deacons will be serving the Lord’s Supper at the 11 service. If you are a Christian, come and celebrate; if you are not a believer, come and find the path to peace. Jo Griggs hosted her entire family for “Sunday Dinner�. That’s a pretty good task for a family that size but a wonderful thing to be able to do. The Smithson clan treated Wanda to a Sunday off from cooking as they celebrated her birthday with a dinner at “Majestic�. Her brothers and their wives also attended. We embarrassed her with an exuberant version of “Happy Birthday� in front of a large crowd at the restaurant. Our youth will be traveling to Gallaway this Saturday to help with a community wide Easter hunt and witnessing for the kids who live in this impoverished area. Good for you, kids and God bless you. From the Pastor’s pen: The question is not whether you have come to knowledge of doctrine, or an observance of ceremonies, but have you come to the Blood of Christ? The Blood of Jesus is the life of all godliness. I you have truly come to Jesus, the Holy Spirit has brought you there. You came to the blood of sprinkling with no merits of your own.

By Connie Cooper reception and redemption. One man died ‘in’ sin; one man died ‘to’ sin and one man died ‘for’ sin. We had our final practice for our Easter morning cantata, “The Power of the Cross.� We will be presenting it next Sunday morning. We will begin with our sunrise service at 7 a.m. During the service we will have a message from Bro. Don and a presentation by our drama team of “Arise My Love� and the Flowering of the Cross. Then the men (all fine cooks) will prepare and serve breakfast. Following our meal, the choir will present the cantata. We have an Easter egg hunt planned for the children after that. No evening service is scheduled. Happy birthday to Kenny Joyce today and we hope you students and teachers enjoy your spring break. Dylan Joyce was back at church and we were thankful for that. Hope to see you in church next Sunday!

God’s Garden God looked around his garden and he found an empty place, He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face.

He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be thine.� It broke our hearts to lose you but didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home.

Dyer Church of Christ Morning worship services had an attendance 116 and 89 in Sunday school. Our message for the morning service came from the book of Exodus 5:22-23, A Great Life Lesson. We can do what is right and it not come out right. Moses was obedient to God but Pharaoh made it worse for the people. Regardless of the cost we must be obedient to God. Hard hearts don’t always listen. Service to God is a process – changing others or ourselves takes time. God promises it will be right if we endure, trust and have faith. Our message for the evening services came from the book of Ephesians 5:1-2, Love like God loves us. Give until. Give as God teaches. Give as God has prospered us, Exodus

36:5. The generous soul will be made rich, Proverbs 11:25. It is not always about money but what is in our soul. Do we have generous a soul? Remember in Prayer: Jan Tharpe and family, Zelma Puckett, Gene Kelley, Jeff Carson, all of our shut-ins and those in the nursing homes. We know a lot of our kids are on Spring break this week and hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday. May God bless anyone traveling this week and you may return home safely. We will be having a special lesson next Sunday, The Cruxification, Burial and resurrection. Please come and join us this Easter Sunday and be a part of a special family in Christ.

Sunday School for Shut-In When you are ready please read Matthew 27: 15-18. The leader could see that they were losing followers who were going to Jesus. They were jealous of Him. Now they thought that they had found a way to have Jesus nailed to His cross. But actually God had made this way. One leader had tore his clothes. The man was named Caiaphas. He knew that Jesus was again claiming to be God (John 10:33). Therefore he said, “We don’t need any more witnesses. You have all heard His blasphemt. What do you think? The people

answered, “He is guilty of a crime worthy of death! Jesus had set up death for himself and intercession for us (Isaiah 53). “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus� Philippians 2:5 NKJV. The ultimate instruction for the Jesus follower is that we live and breathe the Lord Jesus. Having His hear: Thinking His way about issue and question of life. The Father and Jesus as God sent the Holy Spirit to every one of us. He abides in us. Each one of us who is loving Him (John 14:1-23). Jesus has said, “God is spirit� (John 4:24). Christ

By Mary King

Jesus was in the form of God and yet and still He was Christ. The Son of the only living God (Matthew 26:63). “In the beginning was the Word was with God and the Word was God.� John 1:1 NKJV. The spirit of God says so. When the trail of Jesus began, we watched in Matthew 26. When the people declared Jesus to be worthy of death, they began to spit on Jesus. Then they hit Him and they slapped Him. They didn’t think He knew their names, so they said, “Now prophecy to us. You the Christ: Tell us the name of the one who slapped

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell God has truly blessed us with an abundance of rain this past week. Just think, that we may be praying for rain later this summer. Anyway, we must take what God gives us, rain or sunshine. Our topic for discussion was taken from the book of Hosea in the Old Testament. Hosea was one of the “minor� prophets of God. A prophet is one whom God spoke with to warn the people of impending doom, unless they gave up their idols and worshipped the one true God. The book of Hosea is a love-story, real, tragic and true. Throughout the book, Israel is described as ignorant of God, with no desire to please Him. God told Hosea to find a wife and told him ahead of time that she would be unfaithful to him. It is a story of a young man and his wife, Gomer. God compares his wife to the nation of Israel. In obedience to God, Hosea married Gomer. His relationship with her, her adultery and their children became living, prophetic examples to Israel. The sins of Israel would soon bring their destruction. In chapter four, verse 6, we are told that they would be destroyed because they rejected knowledge. Our study begins with Hosea 6:1-10. There were six points in our lesson. (1) Those who reject the knowledge of God are under his condemnation. In verse one; God brings a threefold “charge or indictment, against the nation through His prophet Hosea. He says that there is no truth. They have no faithfulness. He says that they have no knowledge or discernment. To

be indicted by God is to stand condemned. The religious� leaders had failed to turn the people back to god. They were breaking the laws God had given them and “basking� I their prosperity and greed. (2)Those without knowledge of God break all moral restraint. Verse two gives a list of sins that the people commit, showing in particular violations of the second table of the Ten Commandments. The people are worshipping their “own� Gods and not following after God’s laws. (3)Those without knowledge of god have no true hope. In violation of god’s law, they made two golden calves and told the people to worship them. Soon the people of the Northern kingdom began to worship Canaanite gods. Before long they had substituted Baal worship for God. We can see that same thing happening today! Verse three pictures a devastating drought upon the land that will come as a judgement for their lack of knowledge. Those who “contend� with the priest are worthless and correction from any authority simple goes unheeded. Verse five then shows the spiritual parallel to the disaster of verse three. Because of the heart attitude of the people they will “stumble.� Sounds like our America today doesn’t it? The “leaders� had kept them from their true worship of God. (4)Those without knowledge of God lose all purpose for themselves and their children. Verse six gives us the heart of the

Clora’s Chapel Wednesday night started the week for Cloras Chapel in Dyer. We had three nights of a wonderful Revival. Prophet Elijah Yalartai, Minister Timothy White, and Evangelist Jonathan Hill all did a fantastic job of delivering God’s message. The spirit was high each night and we were truly blessed. We were glad to have St. Paul Lexington’s choir on Wednesday, St. Paul Kenton on Thursday, and Badgett Chapel on Friday. God is so good! We had three members to join in our Revival, Rev. Kim Jackson, Minister Eric Kirksey, and Sister Heather Myles. All three are on fire for the Lord and we are very glad to have them. Saturday morning a group of Elders, Deacons, and Members ate breakfast with Rev. Myles and Sis. Diane Myles at Shoney’s in Jackson. The fellowship was great and was enjoyed by all. Sunday was a great day at Cloras Chapel. We began with a spirit filled Sunday School taught by Elder Keith Harris. Our Sunday School is growing and the participation is outstanding. In morning worship, our new young adult choir sang for their first time and they did a wonderful job. The message was delivered by Pastor Jeremy Myles. His title was “Lord Let it Be� from Genesis 1:6 and Hebrews 11:1. He was on fire and the Holy Spirit spread all over the church. We had wonderful service. We were blessed with two new members Kadedra Evans and Keith Evans, Jr. We are so happy and proud to have them. God is truly blessing. We were happy to have Mr. Robert Branick from Jackson in service with us. We enjoyed his presence.

passage and truly “frightful� in its implications. God says that because the people had rejected the knowledge of Him, He would reject them from being “priest for me.� God is saying that the people would lose their purpose, the reason for existence, and to meditate the Word of God to nations. If this was not enough, the verse ends, “I will also forget their children.� The consequences of the people’s sin would flow down to the generations that followed, and indeed, this is exactly what happened to the faithful of the Northern kingdom. (5)Those without knowledge of God live in dissatisfaction. Verse 710 describes the ongoing dissatisfaction that would gnaw at the people. The priests relished the people’s sin. The more the people sinned, the more they could fill their own greediness.� Verse 10 is the climax of dissatisfaction: “they shall eat, but not have enough; they shall commit harlotry, but not increase.� (6) In the first part of verse 6 we see the final and ultimate consequence; we see that the people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. They would cease, be cut off, and perish. My friend, the United States of America is now being destroyed because of a “Lack of knowledge of God.� It will be utterly destroyed if it does not turn back to God, worship Him only, and give up our worldliness. Remember that God has warned us by giving us example after example for us not to be destroyed.

Michael T. Skinner and his son was in service Sunday also and it was good to see him. Also Brenda and Fred Harris worshipped with us. Please continue to pray for our sick and shut in Bro. Bob and Mary Harris, Bro. M.G. and Adean Carpenter, Sis. Verdell Fisher and Sis. Evelyn Fields. Please keep Sister Reina Farris and Desiree in your prayers as they try to recover from their loss of losing their home to a fire. Sunday is Easter Sunday!!

Cloras Chapel will have Sun Rise service at 7:00 am. Pastor Earnest Liggons from Dyer CME will be bringing the message. Breakfast will be served immediately after service. We will begin our morning worship at 10:00 am and following will be our Easter program. We are looking forward to a great day. Stay in prayer and remember the Lord Arose from the dead with ALL POWER in His hands. Aren’t you glad? Have a good week!

you. Say the mane of the one who hit you� (Matthew 26:67-68). Did they know His name? Now Peter had watched until he couldn’t watch anymore. He went outside the place where Jesus was (Matthew 26:69) Jesus seemed to be helpless. I can only imagine what Peter was thinking. How can this be? And if this could happen to Jesus what would they do to Peter? After he’d watched Jesus do every miracle possible, and now Jesus won’t even take up for Himself in the least. Peter hears and knows that Jesus is on road to Golgotha the place of the skull. Peter can’t help He’s terrified.

Kenton Math-A-Thon students get a special visitor A group of 28 Kenton Elementary School students recently enjoyed a visit from Audrey Forrester, a second grader at Union City Elementary. The kids at Kenton School recently raised $2,440 for the children of St. Jude Hospital in Memphis. This money was raised through their participation in the

hospital’s Math-a-thon. Audrey has been a patient of St. Jude since January 2008, after being diagnosed with AOL Leukemia. She was accompanied during her visit by her grandmother, Kathy Forrester. They shared their own personal experiences while being a patient of St. Jude, and expressed a

deep appreciation for what the doctors have done for Audrey. They encouraged the students to participate in Math-a-thon each year, because every penny counts when it comes to saving the life of a child. Any child who goes to St. Jude for treatment can go without their parents having to worry about the cost.

KENTON STUDENTS HAVE A SPECIAL VISITOR Kenton Elementary School Math-a-thon participants

This facility will cover the cost. What a blessing it is to have a place like this so close to home. So next time when you’re asked by a child to sponsor he or she for Math-a-thon, just think about Audrey, and how St. Jude saved her life. Audrey is the daughter of Andy and Crystal Forrester of Rives.

and teacher Jennifer Chandler are pictured with Audrey and her grandmother Kathy Forrester.

Buster’s birthday wish from page 1 instead of birthday gifts for his birthday, he wanted all of us to contribute to the Gibson – North Relay for Life. He reminded us that animals do have cancer and that with our contributions to the Gibson – North Relay human research would help animal research and hopefully save animals with that disease also. His friends sent $800 in his honor Now, of course, Buster talks with his eyes and barks. We all know that. Many of you know Buster personally and you know that he does

talk to you and that he will smile at you. Today with his eyes, barks, and smiles, he sends this message to you via his owner. “Please send those birthday gifts to me again. Please donate to the Gibson – North Relay for Life. You can help us animals too! I am seven years old now. Why not send a seven-dollar donation in my honor. If you want to buy a luminary in my honor, in your pet’s honor, or in honor of some of our animal friends, please send five dollars and my ‘Daddy Mac’ will

PROM PARTY – Dyer Florist hosted a Prom Party Friday, April 15th for girls planning to attend prom this month. David Harrison and Kim Reynolds displayed pre-made wrist corsages of silk flowers in a wide variety of styles and bright colors for the girls to choose from. Most corsages can be duplicated with real flowers and can be made to match a specific colored dress. After viewing and trying on the colorful creations, the girls were treated to pizza and drinks. Among the girls attending the Prom Party were (from left) Sarah Carroll, Amber Simmons, Anna Santaniello and Kelley Parks. Anna was the winner of a free corsage in the drawing held. The Gibson County High School prom will be held Saturday, April 30th at the high school.

take care of everything else. You can buy a luminary in memory of someone or your pet with that five dollars. You can send a dollar and I will be happy. Incidentally, through our dog network, I know that Reno, a 10-year old Yorkie that lives in Kenton, has serious cancer problems. I know times are sad in Kenton just as they were when my friend Lena died. Please donate. Thank you so much for caring for us.” Think about what Buster told you. Think about contributing to the Relay for Life. Nineteen teams are working this year with the Gibson – North Relay for Life. The Relay For Life will be held June 24 at Gibson County High School. Send your Buster donations to 30 Reed Road in Dyer.

organizations throughout the state of Tennessee to show their support for Tennesseans for the Arts, the arts advocacy group who works to protect public funding for the arts in Tennessee. The primary

source of this funding comes from the sale of specialty license plates. Last year, 70 percent of the funds used for the 800+ grants distributed by the Tennessee Arts Commission came from the sale of these plates.
