Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "God resists the proud, but , "es grace to the humble.' Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time," 1 Peter 5:5b-6 (NKJV) I find it very ironic that Peter uses this proverb (3:34) to teach us a lesson about pride and humility. Peter certainly knew a thing or two about both; always (before Pentecost) boast- ful and quick to react in ways not always consistent with those of Jesus, he of- ten let his pride overwhehn his humility. Having been with Jesus for more than three yeasts. ['4er v:',~>', ,-;. certain of 1.:4 t~\vn commit- ment (pride) that he spoke foolishly when h, told Jesus that he wm,Jd ,~,~ver stumble because of Him. (Matthew 26:33) Peter was about to learn a most painful and valuable lesson, a lesson that we all must learn in one manner or another. Peter, certain that he knew who he was and what he could do, /i ',-!e) was about to be introd to the reality of came crashing down. Having made a boastful statement he was now tbrced to accept his own failure and Peter "went out and wept bitter- ly." iMatthew 26:75)There's nothing that kills our pride more than coming face to face with tbe reality of who we really are. Have you been humbled by lifb's situations and ~:;rcm~la~ces, by real- tzin; ti,.~ cultainty of your own inadequacy?' If so, then you aro in company with Pct~,r and ready for ,Jesus to use you in a mighty and powerful way. The Far Corner Lake Mary And Fort Adams by Rhonda M. Quirk On Monday, March 24, as Mike and I were entering the courthouse for the BOS meeting, we encountered a gentleman photographing the courthouse. He informed us that he took photographs featured on calendars. He inquired about other places to photograph. I wouldhave loved for Lake Mary or the Mississippi River to be fea- tured on a calendar. How- ever, he was driving a car so that was not an option. We directed him to Pick- neyville Road and gave him directions to Clark's Creek. Later, in the board meeting I found out that Pickneyville Road is also in grave need of repair. The BOS meeting was not as productive as the previous meeting. Lake Mary, Fort Adams, Pecan Grove and Jackson Point folks pitched in and began fixing county roads. However, I was un- der the impression that ff we could get the majority of the work done that the sec- ond district would be more who he .... umility). Every- receptive to our needs. This thing was fine with Peter was simply not the case. We until the rooster crowed, up appreciate the culverts that until that moment he was the county is providing, even sure of himself and his ac- though we have to put them tions; with the crowing of in, this is a small step toward the rooster Peter s whole life progress. It seems Lake Mary Road and Jackson Point are too far for the county to haul gravel. Once again this is a task for the community to deal with. Fii~y loads of dirt were hauled in to the mud pit on Jackson Point all at private individuals' expense. The road work on Lake Mary Road was provided by pri- vate individuals at their ex- [ P ease Do Your Share In Helpinimeep t WilkinSon County Ciean CONCORDIA METALINC.

We are trying to work with the county but we still have the same problem NO MONEY in the budget for us. The BOS voted to apply tbr a loan to help with road work. We all know borrow- ing your way out of debt does not work. It may buy time but that is not the solution. The county roads are a major problem because not enough monies have been allocated to maintain them. The unit system may be the long term solution for the county. I want everyone to un- derstand that I am av~are that everyone in Wilkinson County pays taxes and most of us have bad roads. I am not implying that Lake Mary and Fort Adams are the only sources of revenue for the county. I am an advocate for Lake Mary and Fort Adams. It has been my home for ten years and hopefully for many more. I regret that impression has been formed by some that I think Lake Mary and Fort Adams are the only important things to our county. I am an advo- cate for anything that eco- nomically benefits Wilkin- son County. The children of Wilkinson County need a public park. Our county officials have applied for a grant from the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for playground equipment, this is an example of what I have been trying to promote for months. Tax monies play a major role in the economic success of our county but so does the revenue brought in by recreation (hunters and fishermen). It benefits the entire county if Lake Mary and Fort Adams are main- tained and used to attract more folks to our county. We don't have any ma- jor plants or industries to support our economy. We Technicians: Charles Sm th Brian McKlemurry & Mark Sanders LOGS PILED AGAINST PERCY'S CREEK BRIDGE -- This photo shows a number of logs and other debris which were pushed against the coun- ty bridge on the Lake Mary Road as a result of the heavy rains which hit Wilkinson County on Thursday night, March 27. The following day on Friday, March 28, Scott Olive of BST Logging Company spent the majority of the day using a large log loader to dismantle the log jam as high water receded from the area. Lake Mary Civic Association Secre- tary Jean Jenkins said, "If you see Scott Olive, you need to thank him for what he did to save this bridge from possible damage." The Lake Mary Civic Association is current- ly having a membership drive, and dues are $35. This money will be used to pay for Lake Mary Road improve- ments. -- Photo by Lake Mary Civic Association BST LOGGING COMES TO THE RES. CUE ~ Using his own equipment, Scott Olive, owner of BST Logging Company of Woodville, volunteered his services in removing a large log jam which had built up on the up. stream side against the supports un- der the county bridge spanning Per- cy's Creek on the Lake Mary Road. Officials feared that the bridge could be damaged or lost if the jam wasn't removed to allow water to flow natu- rally. Olive was at the bridge on Fri- day, March 28, following a rainfall which was measured in several sec- tions of the county at 6-8 inches. Olive used this large John Deere knuckle- boom loader to carefully remove the logs one at a time. Olive stated that one log was so heavy that his equip- ment could not pick it up, and it had to be dragged to the bank. This bridge is located in the Second District, Su- pervisor Richard Hollins' district. -- Woodville Republican Photo by Andy J. Lewis have to use the resources we have in our county. Think of Wilkinson County as an empty plate. The citizens of Wilkinson County are rice. We can survive on rice but the more revenue the coun- ty can bring is the gravy. The more gravy the better the rice. The Far Comer can benefit everyone in the county, if properly utilized. We need help to ensure eco- nomical gain for the entire county. I urge everyone in the county to contact state representative, Angela Cockerham 601-359-3333 or 601-783-4979 and Congress- man Gregg Harper 601-823- 3400 or 202-225-5031 Southwest Development Corporation, Inc.
