POSTMASTER: Sen( all address changes to THE WOODVILLE REPUBLICAN P.O. Box 696, Woodv e, MS 39669-0696. A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhi]l, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "And it happened, when Jehudi had read three or four columns, that the king cut it with the scribe's knife and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the scroll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth." Jeremiah 36.'23 (NKJV) Most of us shudder to think that anyone, much less a king of the Israelites, could be so disrespectfifl as to burn the Scriptures as they are being read. The mere thought causes us to be outraged at such a callous action. However, do we not do likewise, though without the flames, when we listen to the word being read or preached and then show ut- ter disregard for the mes- sage given? Is it any less a travesty to ignore God's word time and time again, than to burn the pages with fire? I submit to you that one is as equally deplorable as the other; while the burning might be more dramatic, the conscious rejection of Scrip- ture is just as tragic. Ei- ther way one's refusal to be mindful of God's messages to us results in an eternity spent apart from His pres- ence; where there will be forever to mourn the lack of opportunity to listen to and obey God's word; the very word that was so despised in life will become hauntingly unattainable after death. Therein lies the tragedy, and the irony; those who "burn" God's word, with fire or by rejection, will themselves burn for eternity. Please lis- ten and respect His word. Wilkinson County Su- perintendent of Education Timothy T. Scott has an- nounced a starting time change for the October meeting of the Wilkinson County Board of Educa- tion.

LIB RTy Protect Your Valuables for Your Family's Future with THE HIGHEST FIRE RATINGS IN THE INDUSTRY FMCH Says Ladies And Gentlemen, Put On Your Pink! Learning you have meta- static breast cancer can be devastating. However, for the approximately 162,000 women in the U.S. fac- ing this advanced stage of breast cancer, new treat- merits can add years to their life. The past few decades have yielded exciting re- search progress. "According to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, just 10 percent of women sur- vived more than five years after being diagnosed in the 1970s," commented Pat Cooper, vice president of Clinical Operations for Quorum Health Resources (QHR). "Today, 40 percent of women with metastatic breast cancer are expect- ed to survive at least five years." Medical advances in the fight against cancer hold promise for longer surviv- al rates. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration recently approved a new drug. In clinical trials the drug lengthened the aver- age survival of women with advanced breast cancer by nearly six months. Metastatic breqst cancer is defined as cancer that originated in the breast and has spread to another place in the body. So when can- cer cells break away from the breast and develop can- cer in the brain, it is called metastatic breast cancer, not brain cancer. In most cases, breast cancer cells spread to the bones, brain, liver and lungs. October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month which provides an opportunity to increase awareness and to raise funds for research for treat- ment and a cure. Specifical- ly, October 13 is dedicated to metastatic breast cancer awareness. "After you have. been treated for breast cancer, 'you should see your doctor regularly for exams and an- nual mammograms," says James Leak, MD at l 'eld Memorial Community Hos- pital. "Specifically, breast cancdr survivors at a higher risk of recurrence if the following factors are present: cancer in lymph nodes; a tumor that is five centimeters or larger; lack of radiation after a lumpec- tomy; women younger than 35-years-old; and inflam- matory breast cancer." Breast cancer survivors should seek medical atten- tion immediately if they ex- perience any of the follow- ing symptoms: A new lump or irregular firmness Pain in the chest or bones Difficulty breathing Weight loss Neurological indicators- such as severe headaches Fever Chills ! While there is no cure for metastatic breast cancer, treatment options can pro- long a patient's life while sustaining a quality of life. The most common treat- ment options include hor- mone therapy, chemother- apy, targeted therapy and radiation therapy. Population studies have also linked the following preventative measures to reduced breast cancer inci- dence: Exercise Omega-3 fatty acids (flax- seed, fish, etc.) Vitamin D Avoiding carbohydrates like bread, baked goods, cakes, etc. 7-9 hours of sleep each night Keep your bedroom dark when sleeping to avoid dis- rupting melatonin levels (a naturally-occurring sleep hormone) There are several ways you can get involved and help raise awareness. Get a group together to partici- pate in one of the numerous walks for breast cancer this month such as The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Even pur- chasing from a company that donates proceeds to breast cancer research can help.
