Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches ffl do not set aside the grace of God,. for if righ- teousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." Galatians 2:21 KJV) Is it not strange when church folk say things like, "well, I just try to keep the Ten Commandments, if I can do that I will be alright'. I recently had someone say that to me after the Sun- day morning service; my response was a quiet "and you31 find yourself in hell". I guess it is a human condi- tion that makes us want to "do" something in order to have eternal life with Jesus. The Bible is very clear on the idea of law versus grace; the Old Testament in particular gives us a multitude of ex- amples where the Israelites failed to keep the Law. Most folks who make this kind of statement probably don't realize that if you break one commandment they are all broken. The real tragedy of this school of thought is that there is no mechanism in the Law for mercy or for- giveness; the law condemns, period. As an example; when was the last time a policeman pulled you over to commend you for your safe driving, has the IRS ever sent you a letter of ap- preciation because you sent your return in early? The Law does not affirm, it con- demns; if we try to achieve justification through the Ten Commandments, or any other set of rules or laws, we will fail miserably and find that there is no recourse. Faith in Jesus Christ is our only hope for justification; once justified by our faith in Him, our lives will reflect the power and truth of the Ten Commandments, as we keep them not as matter of works but as a result of living un- der Grace rather than under Law. The law then becomes descriptive of who we are ealize the impossibility of rather than an unattainable . ,ping the Law; nor do they standard by which to live. 3 CONCORDIA METAL!NC. i OPEN MONDAY , FRIDAY . 7,30 A.M.- 4!30 P.M ........ "|_ " (._kl--_ 38/aa6-sta -""  - ' t 800-722-62ev4 : There has been a lot going on in The Far Comer. Last Friday, Lake Mary Planting Company hosted a recep- tion for U.S. Congressman Gregg Harper. I am confi- dent that after visiting Lake Mary, Congressman Harper saw first hand not only the beauty of Lake Mary but the conditions that residents and landowners have been forced to deal with because of lack of funds to properly maintain our county roads. Many private individuals and county employees began work on Lake Mary Road on Monday. As you all know, private individuals provid- ed the majority of fimding (over $25,000.00) for Jackson Point Road. Now, the raising of Lake Mary Road is be- ing funded mostly by private individuals. I can't say this was entirely due to slack by county officials because two landowners refused to sign right of way agreements. Therefore, Administrator Lewis could not execute the plan to dredge Percy Creek. I get annoyed with folks who complain all the time about the conditions here but yet do nothing to help resolve the problems. I know hunt- ing season is here and folks want to hunt and not be dis- rupted by construction even if it means better road con- ditions for everyone in the future. I do believe Adminis- trator Lewis does the best he can to resolve our problems. The vast donations for Lake Mary Road and Jackson Point Road demonstrate that most folks here are willing to work with the county to im- prove our situation. It should also signify the importance of The Far Comer to the county because so many pri- vate individuals are willing to sacrifice their time, money and equipment to recover from the years of neglected maintenance by the Second District supervisor and his mad crew. It seems like it is becom- ing common practice to do- nate maintenance for county roads. Tax season is just around the comer and an ad- equate portion dSthese taxes ..... should be appropriated for mad maintenance. These tax dollars have been used in the past to pay off loans from the prior year and I am afraid that too is becoming common practice.

QHR client hospital Field Memorial Hospital in Centreville received the award for Most Improved Performance in a Critical Access Hospital and CEO Chad Netterville and CFO Bryan Stevens were named as one of the top Turn- around Teams of the year. "In the past year, Field Memorial Hospital devel- oped a new strategic plan, constructed, staffed and opened a new satellite clin- ic, improved its EBITDA from a negative 3.35 per- cent to a positive .05 per- cent and decreased supply expenses from 9.5 percent net patient revenue to 7.7 percent," said QHR Presi- dent and CEO James L. Horrar. The Turnaround Team of the Year faced many chal- lenges over the past year. After two interim CFOs and an extensive search, the Field Memorial Hospi- tal identified the right can- didate for the permanent CFO position. The new CFO and longtime CEO worked closely with the Board to accomplish an operational turnaround while obtaining funding, organizing a con- struction team, and break- ing ground on a new re- placement facility and fifth satellite clinic. "Maintaining high per- formance is no easy feat in today's difficult healthcare environment," Horrar add- ed. "Field Memorial Hospi- tal's achievements serve as an example for all hospitals to strive to achieve. We are proud to partner with Chad and his team at Field Me- morial Hospital." Field Memorial Hospi- tal has been a QHR client hospital for more than 20 years. "QHR is proud of the value and commitment all our leadership teams give to our client hospitals and the communities they serve day in and day out," con- cluded Horrar. aJ Ve:,erans Day Open House l;e: Can tp Van Dorn Museum The Camp Van Dora WWII Museum in Centrev- ille will host its annual Open House on Sunday, November 9, between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 p.m., in observance of Veterans Day and to pay tribute and honor to veter- ans of all branches of mili- tary service.

Ma- ny grants and state fund- ing come with stipulations. I haven't found too many things in life that are actu- ally 'Tree". It isn't unreason- able for the state to require maintenance on a county road that they have funded. When guidelines aren't met, you can't blame the state for not wanting to "give" more money to be wasted by ne- glecting to perform necessary maintenance. The off companies that have recently come into our county are under fire for damaging roads all over the county. I have to say in their defense, most of them are working with district super- visors to correct the damages that they feel responsible for incurring. Honestly, if the oil industry hadn't moved into Wilkinson County, I don't be- lieve that there would be any hope that the county could ever regain economical sta- bility. Cool weather has final- ly graced us but it hasn't gotten cold enough to hin- der the snake population. Hunters are flocking in to prepare for deer season, so please watch for these sneaky vipers. Hogs and deer are also a road hazard this time of year. However, I have seen more raccoons on Jackson Point Road than any other critter. The rac- coons really look healthy this year. Last year, their fur had a reddish tint to it and they were scrawny. This year, fat, pie faced, bushy tailed raccoons are plundering about. Owls are also swooping about the dark skies.
