(I) Incumbent SUPERVISOR 1ST DIST. WilSeal(I) SUPERVISOR 2ND DIST. E. KirkSmith A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "And again another Scripture says, 'They shall look on Him whom they pierced." John 19:37 (NKJV) John is quoting from Zechariah 12:10, and in this case is speaking of Jesus on the cross after the soldier had thrust the sword into His side to verify that He was indeed dead. There is another ap- plication that the original passage intends; one that is still valid today some 2000 years after Jesus was crucified. Zechariah writes, "And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusa- lem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced." When we ,become as others who claim Jesus as Lord and Savior, our at- titude toward Him changes completely; we are first of all made conscious of our own sinfulness and need of a Savior and begin to realize that Jesus not only died for us but He died because of us. It was our sin, my sin, that made His death necessary; at that moment we begin to look on Him as One whom we have pierced by our sinful behavior. This causes us to experience a tension in our Christian walk; on one hand we are elated that Je- sus would die for our Sins; on the other we are sad- dened by our own complic- ity in His death. It is with this in mind that Zechari- ah finishes the verse, "Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn." Are we among those who mourn over Jesus' death; or are we of those over whom Jesus weeps? Netterville Lumber Co. CENTREVIL ACADEMY Health Insurance Problems? Tuscaloosa Marine Shale News by Bernell McGehee "... the report of my death was an exaggera- tion." Samuel Clements, a/k/a Mark Twain, wrote in reponse to rumors of his demise. A couple of weeks ago I was transact- ing a little business when the lady read my name on the business document, looked at me in recogni- tion and quizzically said, "You write about the oil?" I nodded. She then said something to the effect, "I used to read your ar- ticle until the price of oil dropped and I figured out nothing was going to come of it." I didn't say much as I recall, but Mark Twain's response seems to be about as appropriate as it comes. The Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Play is certainly not thriving right now, but things are continuing to happen and some things are rumored to be hap- pening that provide an exciting glimpse into the future. First let's note that Goodrich Petroleum has completed drilling the W. Alford 10H-1 in Washing- ton Parish and Sanchez Oil and Gas should be completing the Bloomer in Wilkinson County very soon. Located roughly 100 driving miles apart, these are the farthest east and west wells drilled in the TMS, re- spectively. So, not only is the TMS alive, but it is looking to expand. Goodrich plans to change out rigs, then con- tinue drilling in a month or so. Sanchez plans to im- mediately move to the Macedonia site;north of Centreville in Wilkinson County next where, rumor is, 2-4 wells will be drilled from the one pad. Unofficial reports from recent wells continue to indicate higher production levels of at least one well have topped 35,000 bar- rels of oil in the first 30 days. Meanwhile costs to drill and complete wells continue to drop. These nice production levels coupled with lower costs is seemingly lead- ing Sanchez into this next phase of drilling opera- tions. The only remaining trick here is to figure out just how far apart to space the laterals be- tween wells drilled in the same direction.

Local President Meets State & National Presidents At a recent meeting of' the Mississippi State So- ciety of the National Soci- ety Colonial Dames XVII Century, Vickie Netterville of Centreville and Natchez, right above, who is presi- dent of the Governor George Harlan Chapter Colonial Dames XVII Century, vis- ited with other presidents shown above, left to right: Juanita Gex, Honorary President General; Cindy Phillips, Mississippi State Society President; Frances Harrington Davis, Presi- dent General; and Netter- ville. Other members of the Governor George Harlan Chapter who attended the meeting included Joyce Shorter of Brandon, Pau- line (Polly) Tarver Scott, State Historian of Natchez, and Virginia Odenwald, State Registrar of Gloster. One of the objects of the National Society is to main- tain zealously those high principals of virtue, courage and patriotism which led to the independence of the Colonies and the foundation and establishment of the United States of America. The Governor George Harlan Chapter won sev- eral State Society awards including one for publicity. Women who had an ancestor residing in the American Colonies be- fore 1700 are encouraged to call Chapter Registrar Ruby Dickerson at 601- 442-3043 for additional information. -- .Submitted Photo & Article chez opts to drill 3-4 wells from the Macedonia site, I suspect this will be a significant purpose of do: ing so... to experiment with spacing. What better time to ex- periment than when costs are low? As important as 2014 was in "proving" the TMS, 2015 may, likewise, ex- pand the knowledge base necessary for the contin- ued successful develop- ment of the TMS. Those who continue to plan for the success of the play will likely look back on the low oil price period of 2015 as a true blessing. The knowledge and prepa- ration time during this period could prove invalu- able in the future. It has become clear to me that while the TMS will be a successful oil play, it will develop much slower than first thought. So slowly at times that some folks may not think anything is happening! For now, here is the status of pre-production wells in the TMS. Drilling or Moving on: Wilkinson, Sanchez Bloomer.
