A column by Rev. Bobby ThornhilL Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "For as I was passing through and considering the objects of your wor- ship, I even found an altar with this inscril~ tionz TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore, the One whom you worship with- out knowing, Him I pro, claim to you:" Acts 17:23 NKJV) The great apostle found himself in the midst of pagan Athenians who worshipped many gods; and just in case they might have missed one, they erected an altar to the UNKNOWN GOD. Paul was able to use this reference to a god that they did not know as an opportunity to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a people who had no prior clue of His existence. His efforts yielded only a few converts and Paul soon left Athens en-route to Corinth. In contrast, some Church folk today hedge their de- ~i i~: :~i~i~i~:~~'~:~" i~: ~i~ ........ ~S~9~:~ penden~ce on Christ for sat- ~:i~ ~ ~i~ ~ ~ii~ many other endeavors; so much so that Jesus has be- come the GOD UNKNOWN to a significant percentage of our congregations. It isn't that they don't know about Him (like the Athenians); it's that they don't know Him, and have no idea what it means to have a personal relationship with the One whom they claim to worship. He has become one of many gods; the god of self being first, along with the gods of materialism, pleasure; and the gods of self importance and self righteousness close behind. Even the Church building has become a god while Jesus has become for them only one of many gods; and as such is not Lord of their lives or Savior of their souls. Like the pagans of Athens, not many are will- ing to learn about the UN- KNOWN GOD, even if His name is Jesus. Dear Editor, This is a thank you note to Paul and Hope Thim- mesch for twenty-six years of service to The Old River Water Association. I am one of one thousand and four hundred members that have enjoyed clean drinking water all those years. The system has grown over the years from one well to four wells and new mem- bers every day. This is more work than one man can do. Thank you again for your hard work and dedication. We will miss you and Hope. Liz Chaffin *** Health Officials Confirm One New West Nile Virus Case In Hinds County I File Tax Returns Stop Garnishments End Bank Levies Settle Tax Debt Audit Defense. 941 Payroll Tax Thousands Helped. MILLIONS Saved. On Monday, September 15, the Mississippi State Depart- ment of Health (MSDH) con- firmed one new human case of West Nile virus (WNV), bringing the state total to 25 cases so far in 2014. The new case was reported in Hinds County. So far this year, human WNV cases have been re- ported in the following coun- ties: Adams (2), Bolivar (1), Covington (1), Forrest (4), Harrison (1), Hinds (7), Lau- derdale (1), Madison (1), Newton (1), Rankin (4),Yazoo (1), and Wilkinson (1). Three WNV deaths have occurred, in Forrest, Madison, and Ya- zoo counties. The MSDH only reports laboratory-confirmed cases to the public. In 2013, Missis- sippi had 45 WNV cases and five deaths. The MSDH suggests the following precautions to protect yourself and your environment from mosquito- berne illnesses: Use a recommended mosquito repellent that con- tains DEET while you are outdoors. Remove all sources of standing water around your home and yard to prevent mosquito breeding. Wear loose, light-colored, long clothing to cover the arms and legs when outdoors. Avoid areas where mos- quitees are prevalent. Travelers to the Caril> bean should take precautions against mosquito exposure. Please see www.HealthyMS. com/chik for more informa- tion.

Scammers posing as representatives from the Yel- low Pages are invoicing com- panies for advertising they never placed. A Jackson busi- ness owner contacted BBB serving Mississippi about an invoice they received for services that they did not receive or agree to. 'ffdnfortu- nately, some businesses just pay because they don't want to ruin their credit" said John O'Hara President/CEO of BBB serving Mississippi. '~hey use a well known name and create fake websites and invoices to trick people into paying for services they have never performed." Results of a BBB investigation found that YEFIB has no affilia- tions with the Yellow Pages and the Yellow Pages link has since been taken down off of their website. How the Scare Works: You receive an invoice from YEFIB representing a website, which they claim is an online version of the Yellow Pages. The invoice comes with a copy of your ad that the company claims you had supposedly agreed to. When you call to inquire, a representative says that you verbally confirmed the placement. If you don't pay they threaten to send you to a collection agency. That's when some business owners cave in and pay the invoice to avoid credit problems. How to Protect Yourself Against This Seam: Don't just pay for some- thing you didn't agree to be- cause you received an invoice. Don't confirm informa- tion from unknown callers. This just gives the scam- mers something to use against you. Remember, the Yellow Pages name and logo is not trademarked. Scammers are able to use the name and "walking fingers" icon to lend credibility to their seam. They are not affiliated with the famous phone directory. Don't trust Caller ID. Scammers have technol- ogy that lets them display any number or organization name on your screen. File a complaint with your BBB.
