University of Alabama Come see wonderful paintings by artist Mary Hambleton throughout the month May! Sarah Moody Gallery of Art, 103 Garland Hall May 10, 2009 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

By Mike Woodard Although you might disagree with some of the comments or premises of some speakers at last week’s “Tuscaloosa Tea Party,” the event was democracy in action. There were around 200 or 300 citizens that came out on April 15th, tax day, on the UA Quad, to protest over taxation and the way our government is spending tax dollars. “Big Luther Strange,” a very tall man, was the keynote speaker. Luther expressed his concerns that our government is spending too much money, that the coming generations will be saddled with debt, and that inflation will result from excessive government spending. He also said the efficiency of government spending should and could be improved. There were several people carrying posters with witty quotes, like “Honk If I Paid Your Mortgage,” which made me wish I had a horn even though I’m the one paying my mortgage! There is a lot of focus on people with the most outrageous slogans on posters, or the most extreme opinions or appearance, but some of that can be just to get attention. I think that the whole concept of these people, peacefully, gathering to express their concerns about the future of the nation is a wonderful thing. Peaceful gatherings are more impressive, but less likely to make the news. Our nation allows, and encourages, expression. The event was a tribute to our forefathers who formed the nation and established the freedoms we enjoy. This type expression of our freedoms, even demanding our rights to freedom, is how we will keep it. I don’t think our leaders “get it,” even today as the nation lives in the midst of economic storm. They still don’t get it. They continue, in both parties and throughout congress, on the path of wasteful disrespect in expenditures of our tax dollars. Congress, frankly, has disrespected the taxpayers of our nation

for many years. They have been a disgrace. Congress has funded so many bridges to no where that government spending is exceeding private spending. This will not stand and could bring about the demise of our country. Some were misdirected, or supporting a political party, at this Tea Party, but most folks there seemed to get it. It doesn’t matter which party overspends. It’s bad for the country. This Tax Tea Party, it was also politically motivated, and directed in large measure by republicans. The republican party would have much more credibility at this time in this regard had they started these type parties when they were in power and were deficit spending themselves. It’s a shame they waited until they would look like sour grapes. They should have started during a republican administration. It was just as appropriate then. I suspect they know this now. I believe in the rights of the people to assemble and express their political concerns. I wasn’t at the meeting to tear anything up or down. I went to admire freedom in action. I went there for my country. It was democracy in action. Email mike: mike@tuscaloosa-shopper.com

DON’T FORGET OPPORTUNITY WEARS OVERALLS

By Mike Woodard According to Julius Wyman, director of the Federal Reserve in Atlanta, who spoke in Tuscaloosa this week, “Opportunity shows itself in overalls, and looks a lot like work”. His message is that people must work hard to get through these tough economic times. “Unlike most other recessions in history, this one is widespread and is felt throughout the economy. Almost everyone is feeling this one.” Wyman says. “The Fed has reduced interest rates it charges to .25%, for us that is considered zero.” Therefore Wyman said the Fed is creating new instruments to help improve the economy. “Unemployment comes later in a recession and therefore is the last to improve as a recession ends.” Wyman said. He showed figures of 1.9% unemployment in

the 1982 recession compared to the present 8.4%. He said he expects unemployment to continue to rise, even as the economy improves. The Federal Reserve has two primary mandates: to control inflation and to improve growth. It’s does this by manipulating the credit markets. However, Wyman said that in late 2008 the credit markets ceased to function. The economic stimulus package, which will increase federal spending, the reduction of Fed interest rates to .25%, and the new Fed “tools”, which are going to increase the money supply, are beginning to show, slightly, in an improvement in the economy, at least a bottom to the recession, according to Wyman. “We’re not out of the woods yet, but we experienced a slight uptick in March in four key areas: personal spending, home sales, durable goods orders, and consumer sentiment.. The most important of these is consumer sentiment.” Mortgage rates were around 6% in 2003, slowly increased to nearly 8% by 2007, and today have dropped to 4.75%. Refinancing has increased by double to triple the first part of 2009 which Wyman takes as a good sign. “When people refinance at a lower rate they reduce the odds of foreclosure on their homes and the money they are

saving can be spent to improve the economy.” The new economic tools the Fed is using are far beyond lowering interest rates which is their traditional market influence. With interest rates near zero to the banks this tool is fully implemented. Therefore new tools and instruments are being employed to try to just start the economy. They are: Commercial Paper Markets, Agency Markets, Private Backed Asset Funds, and others. These are designed to increase the flow of funds. The Fed expects the first half of 2009 to be very tough, but Wyman says they expect the last half to show some improvement, but not substantial. 2010 is when the true economic recovery is expected to arise. Even the pessimistic projections for the economy, which Wyman said he trusted more, showed growth returning to the United States economy in 2010, and expanding to strong growth in 2011. From what Wyman said, the Fed is doing the best it can, not perfectly, but as smartly as they can, and all that they can to encourage a return to economic growth in the United States. And that it’s going to take some time, probably another year or so for sustained growth to return. Email Mike: mike@tuscaloosa-shopper.com

EDITOR’S COMMENTS...

Mike Woodard

Lot’s of negative stuff going around out there right now. The media, the politicians, and from some of us. Wastin’ tea, layin’ off, freakin’ out...all over. Well heck, this ain’t the first time things have been tough and it won’t be the last. Let’s all just hang in here if nothing else for to freak out them that wish it would defeat us. Yeah, I know, that ole power bill keeps coming in every month, and the bank called again. Heck, they called my note! But, they’ll renew it. My Dad had a way about him in similar times, back in 1980. He invited me to look at the skin on his arm and said, “See this?.....Elephant hide”. Just to make sure I knew how tough he was. And he was. He made it through the great depression, made it through World War II...and when he graduated from the University of Alabama, he was a man on top of the world, without a penny in his pocket. There’s a lesson is being a man on top of the world without a penny in your pocket. It’s call recognizing your own self worth. I have the best sales reps that could be. Ray and Betty are good at what they do. I’m as proud of them as pickled punch. They’re having a harder time selling right now, cause things are tough! But that doesn’t mean they aren’t good. They’re the best! Don’t let hard times define who you are. There are many mighty good people, hard and smart working people, who are sitting around right now thinking they are worthless, or at least worth less, because times are tough. They didn’t make these times...the times are cause of what some other folks did, not them! So, it doesn’t matter if your shirt or shoes get worn down a bit. It doesn’t matter if the car starts looking a little ratty. The value of a person is what’s inside of them...and if they continue to realize it when times get tough, imagine what they can be when things get better. So, we all need to recognize our own elephant hide. Some days are hard, take you down a bit. I understand it. You can’t let that take away hopes and dreams. You can’t let that take away your spirit inside. Because then those folks that cheated the nation, and mislead us to this point...they’d of had real power over good folks. And good folks are what makes this country worth living in, and worth being a part of. They are why I’m proud to be an American...not because of those sorry bastards that stole from America, and us, and brought her down a peg. It will be us who will bring America back up where she belongs. It will be the good in America, and that’s us who work hard and make something of ourselves...even if we are wearing worn shoes. I can’t stand to see a good man see a fool in the mirror. I’ve done it myself and it’s a hard thing. And yes, I consider myself a good man. I’ve worked seems like all my life now... five, six, sometimes seven days a week...to watch those bastards ruin my savings and take so much from me. But we’re winners. Working folks are the real deal. Let’s just fight on to victory someday. And these times will have shown our finest. These days will better define us than any other in our lives.

Recipes From Candy Taylor

These are some tips I ran across for throwing the “Best BBQ Ever”. Pretty weather is on its way, so get outside, fire up that grill, and enjoy some delicious BBQ.

(StatePoint) It’s barbecue season and backyard chefs have begun firing up their grills nationwide in the never-ending quest for spicier, juicier and zestier fare. Also bellying up to the grill this season are award-winning BBQ Pit Masters, who are serving-up hot tips and sizzling barbecue, alike, at innovative barbecue competitions at NASCAR events across the country. Armed with dry rubs and tangy sauces, the Pit Masters will be competing in the Prilosec OTC BBQ Shootout Series for tens of thousands of dollars in prize money and bragging rights -- while sharing the spicy results with fans. National Champion Pit Master Mike Davis of Lotta Bull Barbeque in Oklahoma, who is participating in the Shootout Series, is sharing some of his secrets to keep your grill in high demand no matter where you fire-up: * When cooking larger cuts of meat, always use an indirect heat as a source. Using the direct heat method will char the outside of the meat without allowing the inside to cook properly. * When grilling, use a “smoker” box of aromatic hardwoods such as mesquite, hickory or pecan to give that distinctive wood smoked flavor. * Use olive oil or any other cooking oil to coat the surface of vegetables to add crispness and to hold on spices and seasonings. * Using a spray or baste during cooking will help keep the meat moist and flavorful and will help to keep the meat from drying out during the cooking process. * A mustard slather can be used to thoroughly coat the meat to help hold spices and seasonings in place during preparation. * Pay careful attention to pork and poultry when Do you have a recipe your family enjoys? grilling; you must make sure both meats are propWant to share it with our readers? erly cooked through. If so please send to me at: * Always grill in a well ventilated area, away from Cooking With Candy eaves and overhangs that can trap toxic fumes. 3309 66th Avenue Northport, AL 35473

Visit parks and natural woods to observe the trees that grow naturally in our area of ideas of other varieties which would do well on your property. Small newly planted trees can be helped by building a dike or berm around the base of the tree to hold rain water close to the tree rather than letting it run off. This is especially true for trees planted on slopes. Be sure to avoid bumping into the trunks with your mower or weed eater and this can break the flow of sap, and result in disease or death for your trees. These scars can allow fungal diseases to enter the tree or let borer insects in under the bark or in the tree. These can result in the death of your trees. After they’ve bloomed this spring you can prune your cherry, crabapple, dogwood, and other spring flowering trees. Suggestions for new varieties to plant on your property are hawthorn, redbud, plum, dogwood, bald cypress, and fringetree. These make for an excellent landscaped look.

Children’s Corner Goal Setting for Kids

Goal setting with pictures fit together like laughter and fun. Both end with feelings of joy and contentment. Yet many grown-ups don’t experience this. They fail to turn their dreams into goals. Don’t let this become your child’s fate. Childhood is the best time to teach your child the tools for setting goals. “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” - Anthony Robbins The Parenting Tip - How to Picture the Goal: To make him goal visible, teach your child to mentally picture what he sees as he looks outward from himself. Tell him to do this mental picturing as if he is accomplishing his goal right now. This is different from picturing himself inside his goal. Let’s examine this parenting tip further. The Parenting Strategy - An Example for Picturing the Goal: If your Kevin wants to learn how to dive, pretend you are sharing this conversation: “Kevin, what would you see before you dive off the diving board?” “I’d see the water.” “What if you tucked your head in toward your body?” “I’d see the water and my feet on the edge of the diving board.” “Picture the water and picture your feet on the edge of the diving board right now.” “OK.” “As you push off and your body is heading into the water, what do you see?” “My eyes are closed. I don’t see anything.” “Kevin, before you fall asleep at night, picture the water and your feet on the tip of the diving board. Feel your head tucking in and your feet pushing off the diving board. Once off the board you don’t have to see anything. Just experience the great feeling of a good dive. Try picturing it now.” If Kevin is having trouble picturing the dive, keep asking questions to help Kevin picture it clearly. Goal Setting with Pictures - The Conclusion: Some kids might give answers different from Kevin’s. Their answers may be just as good. After all, in order for this parenting strategy to work, it must be your child’s picture. Your task is to make sure your child is not picturing himself from a distance, like from the other end of the pool or on the sidelines. Make sure he sees outward from his eyes while making the dive. Goal setting with pictures can change dreams into reality. Why not teach your child the tools for turning the invisible into the visible? If you do, your child will experience how goal setting and pictures fit together like fun and laughter. You’ll both enjoy the contentment of a job well done and you’ll be building character too.

Women’s Forum The Secret of a Mothers Touch A Mothers touch is different. It seems Dad always says, “Go ask your mother”. One thing about being a mother, the touch of love, joy, protection, and care comes naturally. These are just a few attributes a mothers touch produce. When your child is sick or not feeling well-who does he call? Mothers! Dad could be sitting right next to your child. But nothing is like a Mothers Touch! When you find out you are going to be a mother, you change physically and emotionally. Preparing for this new role is challenging, most of all it can be rewarding for you and your children. Along with the touch of a mother, we must also make plans to meet our children needs--financially, spiritually and emotionally. God’s Word has given us clear instruction for training our child. Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. That touch of instruction carries great rewards, however motherhood is not easy! We can’t give up on any little obstacle: We must be determined to be the best mother we can. We can’t let challenges in life consume us. Find time to relax, read, enjoy a brisk walk, a soothing bath to keep your mind from the hustle, you encounter in life. As you continue to apply the Word of God to your life, you will find your mind renewed, and you will achieve victories! Once you become a mother, it is imperative to be there for your children. It is a must! Setting a career aside for the first five years of your child’s life can give him/her the best start in life. Remember that a Mothers Touch is like no other. One thing I know we all will agree on is time can never be replaced; money can always be earned. Many things we make commitments to are just other ways to fill a void in our life. Applying the principles and teachings from the Word of God gives clear instructions and directions to help us be the best mothers can. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts I think towards you says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. You get out of motherhood what you put into it. I see many teens left to fend for themselves and it hurts my heart when I talk with them. I learn they have no sense of direction or value on their lives. Isn’t that sad? We can’t make excuses for our children’s improper behavior. Granted there are some strong willed children who need to be dealt with according to the Word of God. Our children will at times bring disappointments and even rebellion, but one thing I’ve learned was not to dwell on the problem, but to concentrate on the Word and prayer. Also seeking counsel from friends whose children reflect their child rearing is a big plus. There is so much in our children we need to bring out to see dreams and goals come to fruition.

Plus Mark Martin Took Phoenix Can it be Dega time again? You betcha! The world’s largest fastest track is right near home, some of the tickets have been reduced to half price,

and it’s this weekend. One of the greatest shockers to me about this season is Dale Jr.’s position. Dale’s not in the top 10 in cup points. He wrecked late at Phoenix and...things just aren’t looking real good for Dale, Yet, he was doing well in the race until the end. Jeff Gordon’s pit crew nearly threw him out of the lead in the cup standings by leaving a lug nut loose costing him

a good finishing position. Stewart almost took Phoenix, coming in second. He vowed his time is coming soon in victory lane. The biggest news of the week was Mark Martin, a racer I think everybody loves, winning Phoenix. It was Mark’s first win since 2005. For a racer, that’s eternity! But, Mark is 50 years old now. That’s pretty impressive in a young man’s game. Most people don’t realize just how intense racing is and how much energy and stamina it takes. Most 50 year old men simply couldn’t do what Mark is doing. And, he won. I doubt there are many NASCAR fans who felt bad about their driver losing to Mark Martin. He is truly a driver for all fans to love. There’s just something about this man that makes him a crowd pleaser. Now….it’s Dega time. Oh boy, let your horses run. This Saturday and Sunday in Alabama...NASCAR doesn’t get any better than this.

El Secreto de un Toque de Madres

Un toque de Madres es diferente. Parece Padre siempre dice, “Va pregunta su madre”. Una cosa acerca de es una madre, el toque del amor, la alegría, la protección, y el cuidado vienen naturalmente. Estos son justo unos pocos atributos un productos de toque de madres. ¿Cuándo su niño está enfermo o no sintiéndose bien-que hace él llama? ¡Madres! El padre podría estar sentándose bien junto a su niño. ¡Pero nada está como un Toque de Madres! Cuándo usted averigua que usted será una madre, usted cambia físicamente y emocionalmente. Preparando para este nuevo papel desafía, sobre todo puede estar recompensando para usted y para sus niños. Junto con el toque de una madre, nosotros también debemos hacer planes para encontrar nuestras necesidades de niños -- financieramente, espiritualmente y emocionalmente. La Palabra de dios ha dado nosotros vaciamos instrucción para entrenar a nuestro niño. Los proverbios 22:6 Tren arriba un niño en la manera que él debe ir, y cuando él es viejo que él no partirá de ello. ¡Ese toque de instrucción lleva gran recompensas, sin embargo la maternidad no es fácil! Nosotros no podemos dar por perdido cualquiera obstáculo pequeño: Debemos ser determinados a ser la mejor madre que podemos. Nosotros no podemos permitir que desafíos en la vida nos consuma. Encuentre tiempo de relajarse, leer, disfrutar de una caminata vigorosa, un baño calmante mantener su mente de la prisa, usted se encuentra con en la vida. ¡Cuando usted continúa aplicar la Palabra de Dios a su vida, usted encontrará su mente renovada, y usted logrará las victorias! Una vez que usted llega a ser una madre, es imprescindible estar allí para sus niños. ¡Es un debe! La colocación una carrera aparte para los primeros cinco años de la vida de su niño le puede dar a él/ella el mejor comienzo en la vida. Recuerde que un Toque de Madres está como ningún otro. Una cosa que sabe que todos convendremos en es tiempo nunca puede ser reemplazado; dinero siempre puede ser ganado. Muchas cosas que hacemos compromisos a son justo otras maneras de llenar un vacío en nuestra vida. Aplicar los principios y las enseñanzas de la Palabra de Dios dan instrucciones y direcciones claras a ayudarnos somos las mejores madres pueden. Jeremiah 29:11 Para sabe los pensamientos que pienso hacia usted dicen el Señor, los pensamientos de la paz y no de mal, para darle un futuro y una esperanza. Usted sale de la maternidad lo que usted pone en ello. Veo a muchos jóvenes dejaron para defender para sí mismos y duele el corazón cuando hablo con ellos. Aprendo que ellos no tienen sentido de la orientación ni valor en sus vidas. ¿No está eso triste? Nosotros no podemos presentar disculpas para nuestra conducta impropia de niños. Otorgado hay algún fuerte hizo a niños que necesitan para ser tratados con según a la Palabra de Dios. Nuestros niños a veces trae desilusiones e incluso rebelión, pero una cosa que he aprendido fue de no habitar en el problema, pero para concentrar en la Palabra y la oración. El consejo también buscando de amigos cuyos niños reflejan su criar de niño es un más grande. Hay tanto en nuestros niños que necesitamos para sacar para ver sueños y objetivos se cumplen.

There is so much change coming from the Obama administration that it’s hard to keep up with it all. For those who think Obama is the one who destroyed our economy…you must believe he’s a very very fast worker as...he’s just now hitting three months in office! One surprising speed of the Obama administration has been it’s new established contacts with Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, Russia, and the entire European community. They hated us...now they love us! Good! Although some people think it’s a bad idea to speak with your enemies...that’s goes counter to wisdom throughout the ages. There is truth in the age old saying, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”. Obama is pulling them in. Enemies are much easier to Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri: 10:00 to 6:00 deal with this way. Wed: 9:00 to 12:00 The thing about an enemy is, they really just “want things”, and they know they are more likely to get them in negotiation rather than from the frustration of isolation. There is another old saying, trading partners don’t make war on each other. When Mercedes Benz, a German company, came to Tuscaloosa I thought...here’s a company from a nation that required the loss of millions of American soldiers in World War I & II, which will now have an economic interest in America. To war on us would jeopardize their own interests. Germany and Japan aren’t threats to America today, so they are not like Iran, or Cuba...no, they were much, much worse in their day...and they could of been again had we not made trading partners of them and made lasting bonds of friendship with them. When you hear the anger directed at Obama for reducing security of America remember this...nations seldom attack others who are proved to be friendly. It can happened, but the likelihood of it happening is ten to one less than enemies...that’s what Obama is accomplishing. You may witness a terrible backlash against Obama if he is successful. For in failure his enemies have all they need to attack him as a failure. That’s a much easier path for them. But, what will stir them up the worst is if he is a great success. If you think it’s hard to beat an adversary who is losing, try taking one on who is winning big! They’ve already called him everything...on day one I got emails comparing Obama to Hitler. I’m not sure what they can call him worse than that! I don’t believe there is a figure in our vocabulary which would be a worse name to call...and that was brought out on day one! What can they call him after a year or two that would up the anti? 1992 PLYMOUTH 1997 TOYOTA CAMRY, They are hoping they can take congress back mid term, because if Obama is very VOYAGER, runs, drives runs great, good shape, new successful their only alternative will be to impeach him. great, must see, call after belts and battery, $5500.

Musings On Faith

205-333-7525

PAGE 18

With Tom Woodard

Find past and current Musings on Faith articles online at www.downyonderantiques.com “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise (Psalm 51:17, KJV).” This is a well-known Scripture, but what does it mean? First of all, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.” Another way of saying this is “My sacrifice to You, O God, is a broken spirit.” In other words, broken in the willfulness of man, convicted of my sin, repentant, and turning to God for salvation or redemption; realizing that all else is meaningless, and that the answer lies only in God. If we are not “broken” in spirit, we will not turn to God in the way that He wishes for us to do. We are not His slaves, but His children. Nevertheless, if we come before Him in an attitude of entitlement or privilege, we will not surrender our will to God’s will for our lives, and we will not receive the fullness of the blessings He wishes to pour out upon us. We will still have one foot in the carnal world and the other in the Spiritual. The Scriptures make clear, over and over again, that this is unacceptable to God. Then comes that word “contrite”. What is “contrite”? Webster’s New International Dictionary of the English Language defines it as “(1) Regretful, sorrowful, broken in spirit because of a sense of sin; (2) Broken down with grief and penitence; deeply sorrowful for sin; humbly and thoroughly penitent.” A penitent person is a person who repents of sin (Webster’s). If we approach God full of pride, or defensiveness, or denial, or selfjustification, or uttering excuses, we certainly are not contrite. Why is this important? Well, first of all, God tells us, through His Word (Psalm 51:17, above) that if we do not come to Him with a “broken spirit” and “a broken and a contrite heart” He will despise our supplications and prayers. Why? Because they are prayers of words only, and not uttered from a soul deeply yearning for the healing of the Spirit of God. Word prayers are distinguished by utterances of repentance not followed up with actions reflecting true repentance. If we come to God with a broken and contrite heart, seeking His will for our lives, then both God and man will see a difference in us. There will be a turning away from sin and from the carnal life toward a new life, lived in accord with the Spirit and will of God, through Jesus Christ. Contrition is necessary to true repentance and a genuine turning away from sin. Let us not deceive ourselves. Do we have a true repentance, borne of a broken spirit and a broken and contrite heart? If so, the fruit of that contrite and broken condition will be a life lived in daily obedience to God’s will for our lives. Father, give us a broken spirit and a contrite heart, in Christ’s name, Amen. Yours in Christ, Tom

I tried to think about how many birthday parties I had when I was young. Let me see…… none! As a result of all of that rejection, I am now living as a victim of society, haunted by my past. I also remember when my children were born. I had absolutely no desire to watch my wife give childbirth. I took no classes to enhance the experience. Men just didn’t do that. At the last minute, I did decide to go in with her on all of our children, without Lamaze. There’s no doubt that I am obsessive compulsive now because of my ignorance then. And what about showers? I’m not talking about the water type, but the baby, wedding, newcomer, housewarming, and any-other-occasion shower. It seems that showers are now as much a part of a man’s life as they are a woman’s. I just can’t get there from here. I think that’s a metrosexual thing. And not only are showers a common occurrence for every occasion, but now they are telling us where to buy them something from. Each invitation will let us know where they are “registered.” I’m still having a hard time getting there from here. When my children were young, I let them know they would be having only a limited number of birthday parties. Not only did mom and dad have limited funds, but so did all of our friends, and family. And if I didn’t watch it, there would be some shower/party event every weekend! I knew hunting and fishing would be nonexistent if I let that happen. I must admit my wife was not in compete agreement. After all, these were HER children and she wanted everybody to rejoice with her each year. After some compromise, we both were satisfied that our children would not suffer because of the lack of attention they would receive compared to all the other children. I would say they turned out fine, but I’m leaving them in the barrel, with the lid on it, until they’re thirty. I’ll know then. Now I’m not trying to be a party pooper, or an old fuddy-duddy, but I’m just not ready to sit around a room with other men and sell Tupperware. The next thing you know there will be a Mary Kay party just for men. Well, maybe I am trying to be a party pooper. In fact, I guess I’m a little upset. Okay, I’m mad! If she could register for china at Belk’s, what was really wrong with me registering in the fishing department at the Bass Pro Shop anyway?
