Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor of Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called accord- ing to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the im- age of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren." Romans 8:28.29 (NKJV). There are two qualifying statements in this passage that identify the recipients of , the hope that we all long to hear, and two more that give us a glimpse of God's heart. "To those who love God," and "to those who are the called according to His purpose," these phrases qualif~ to whom all things work together for good. Oftentimes (I believe) we tend to read this passage thinking that all things work together for good for us all because God is good. While He certainly is good that alone does not convey the fullness of the Holy Spirit's message that God is especially good to those that love Him and to those called by Him for His pur- out to make us happy in the sense that the uncon- verted human spirit might understand happiness, (no worries and lots of stuff), He is out to make us ho- ly as stated above, "to be conformed to the image of His Son." This process often involves unpleasant experiences (whether au- thored by God or Satan) that may make us any- thing but happy, they are not intended to, they are used to conform us to the image of Christ Jesus Who suffered horribly at the hands of His own people, so too will we have our own trials and tribulations if we love God. The great good news is that God is able to take these trials (no matter how unpleasant or painful) and turn them in to opportunities for our spiritual growth (the good) so that we are continu- ously being conformed into the image of His Son. The why for all of the The Mississippi River is once again on the rise. She went down for about a week and decided to come back for a while. It will be safe to say we won't be celebrating Thanksgiving on the farm due to the high water. We are anticipating going back home by the first week of December. I have many people who have asked me why do we live on the Mississippi Riv- er and have a camp on high ground. I guess to most folks it seems like we got it baokwoaedo. Loch Lo~-oa i8 about as far as you can go in Wilkinson County along the riverside, and it is also our home. The Mississippi River often chooses to swell out of her banks and rebel against the manmade le- vees and locks. That is her nature. We have learned to respect and adapt to her fickle ways. She comes and goes as she chooses. How- ever, it is because of her untamed nature that we have such rich farmland. That is one reason why we chose to live on the farm. I do wonder that in the years to come if anyone will chose the life my husband, Mike, and I have chosen. It is a hard life, even in these modern times. Boating and hauling supplies is hard work. Normally, before a rise we try to stock the farm house with supplies while we can drive in. The last ride out usually means we will drive through at least 2 to 3 feet of water in SPOTS. ) It can be rather tricky driv- ing through the backwaters of the mighty Mississippi. Roads can wash out and it is too late to turn back once you are in the wash out. So why in the world do we live there? I can't put the emotions into words. The mighty riv- er was here first. She wan- ders over 2,000 miles before intersecting with the Mis- souri River which wanders over another 2,300 miles. She is also the passageway for the Ohio and Red River to find their way t~ the Gulf. Man has also manipulated her with locks and dams to serve as a major super high- way. By taking all of these facts in to account, the Mis- sissippi River carries water from 31 states and two Ca- nadian provinces. We just happened to be on route to the Gulf of Mexico and high water is to be expected. The Mississippi River is our history as Missis- sippians. She is our name- sake. We should celebrate her and not condemn her. Man is to blame for much of today's flooding issues. I do get frustrated with the hardships, but all it takes is one look at the muddy waters flowing toward New Orleans, and I feel a sense of pride and fondness that can't be described. Yes, this little corner of Wilkin- son County is remote and obscure from most of the world, but it is my home. I h~ope to see you soon in The Far Corner.

The board discussed a let- ter from Woodville Repub- lican Advertising Manager Lili Lewis which asked if the town would purchase an ad in the paper's spedal Christ- mas edition in which they will announce their dosing hours for the Christmas and New Year's holidays. On motion by Anthony and second by Fry, the board voted 3-0 to approve the ad purchase.

The Tigers struck first when running back Cody Brashier found daylight and capped off the Tigers ~,~ ,~,A~,e of the nigh ,-; h a 5-yard touchdown run. The two-point conversion failed, and the Tigers led 6-0. Midway through the second quarter the Saints found the end zone to tie the game at 6-6 as their two-p0int conversion was unsuccess~l. After the half, the Tigers took their opening drive and marched down the field to score their second touchdown of the contest when running back Daniel Vine found the end zone on an 8-yard run. Once again the point al~r was no good and the Tigers' clung to a 12-6 lead. After coming up with a big stop defensively, the Tigers looked to extend their lead, but the Saints had something else in mind and came up with a big 19-yard scoop to score a touchdown off of the Ti- ger fumble. The score was once again tied, this time at 12-12 as the Saints were unable to convert the point after. Early in the forth quarter Sylva Bay took their first lead of the night when they scored on a 30-yard scram- ble as the Tiger defense was unable to corral the Saints' quarterback. The Saints On the next drive for the Tigers quarterback Tyler Thomassie found tight end Haze Greer on a 37-yard touchdown pass. The Tigers had an opportunity to take the lead with the point ajar, but they were unsuccessful as the game was once again tied, this time at 18-18. Overtime proved to be just as exciting as regula- tion, but it was the Tigers who would come up with a big stop as the Saints were unable to convert the two-point conversion in +a~o third overtime period which gave the Tigers a, 2-point advantage and a 40' 38 victory. Offensively the Tigers were led by Daniel Vine as he rushed 17 times for 90 of the Tigers 244 rush, ing yards.
