Bobby ThornhUl, Pastor Centreville & Whites Chapel United Methodist Churches "For the word of God is living and active. Sharl er than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spir- it, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV) Here we have a self dec- laration from the Word as to its power and capabilities; here we also have one of the main reasons (excuses???.) that so many are reluctant to read and study the Bible. An intentional effort to read and comprehend God's word to us brings about a dis- covery of those things with- in us that are not of Him. It is this judgment by the Scriptures of the "thoughts and attitudes of the heart" that causes so many to turn quickly away from its pages, and to sink further into their own thoughts and attitudes. Earlier in our passage the writer uses "alive" to de- scribe the word's nature. It is this being alive; this abil- ity to speak to our individual beings that gives the word such a powerful capability. It is also what causes one to be convicted by a verse and another to be assured by the same verse. Assurance from the word is designed to toll us that we are on the right path; conviction tolls us that we are traveling in a wrong direction and need to change. Those who want to be who God intend them to be read the Bible and wel- come its instruction. Those who do not want to change do not want the Bible to intorfere; as the writer Mark Twain once said, "It's not the parts ofthe Bible that I don't understand that trouble me; it's the part that I do under- stand." The Bible -- read it, study it, allow it to change your heart, your mind and your life. ,,oo The Far Corner:. Lake Mary And Fort Adams by Rhonda M. Quirk Duck season started with a bang on Loch Leven! The ducks are even more plentiful after the four inches of rain we received this past week. At least there is something beneficial about cold, rainy weather. However, Jackson Point Road is a muddy mess, but I have seen it worse so I won't complain too much. I am confident that Big River Lumber Company will repair the road in order to continue hauling logs from Jackson Point. We are gratoful to the many private individu- als who maintain the county road in order to bring rev- enue to our county. I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. We are truly blessed to be able to share this very special day with our loved ones. This was our first Thanksgiving without Mrs. Myrtis Martin. I cooked back here on the farm, and I only had to call Mrs. Myrtis once to find out how she made her candied sweet potatoes. I am truly thankful that she is just a phone call away. Food in the south has a way of bending folks together. We all love to congregate around a big pot and socialize. That is just a southern tradition. I re- ally wonder what they do up North? All of the good cooks are here in the south! The Far Corner is an amazing place. It is one of the few places in the United States where the river may be at 22 It. this November and 44 ft. the next. I am truly thank- ful that we are able to drive in this year for the holidays. It is just too cold for a boat ride this year! However, the cold weather hasn't affected the wild hogs. Mr. Sal Piazza counted 46 pigs while stand- ing on his front porch. They seem to know when you are not equipped with a firearm. Many camp owners, de- spite the rainy, muddy, cold conditions, are spending the holidays in The Far Cor- ner. Lake Mary is especially beautiful this Thanksgiving night. Camp lights sparkle across the lake, reflecting the happiness and tranquil- ity that bring folks back here year aRer year. Hope to see you here real soon! BROTHERS ENJOY FIRST DUCK HUNT -- Daniel and Matthew Piazza are all smiles as they enjoyed their first duck hunt. The youngsters are the sons of Erik and Sarah Piazza, owners of Loch Leven Plantation, located on the bank of the Mississippi River in west- ern Wilkinson County. They are displaying the hunt's results which included four mallard greenheads, one mottled duck and one wood duck. -- Submitted Photo TMS Activities In The Florida Parishes Of Louisiana About the time I began writing about the Tascaloosa Marine Shale play in Feb- mary, 2013, Devon Energy placed its TMS properties on the auction block. Devon had 7 producing wells. None of these wells were good produc- ers. In fact, none was close to producing enough to war- rant continuing exploration efforts. Consequently, from the outset of my reporting I have ignored the Devon wells. The August purchase by Goodrich of the Devon hold- ings, including these 7 wells, combined with the actual and announced drilling plans for Goodrich in the former Devon leases in Louisiana requires me to now include Devon's previous efforts in my coverage of the TMS. However, I plan to contin- ue to ignore TMS exploration efforts west of the Mississip- pi River. To my knowledge there have been no results, so far, to warrant coverage of that portion of the play. and Completion Date. West Feliciana: Murphy, 63H-1, 1S 3W, 4,742', 42 bpd, 08-20-2012; East Feliciana: Richland Farms, 74H-1, 1S 2E, 4,428', 60 bpd, 04-29-2012; Beech Grove, 68H-1, 2S 2E, 2,738', 14 bpd, 10-30-2011; St. Helena: Weyerhaeus- er, 14H-1, 1S 4E, 2,733', 90 bpd, 06-25-2012; Wey- erhaeuser, 72H-1, 1S 4E, 3,682', 63 bpd, 02-27-2013; Tangipahoa: Thomas, 38H-1, 1S 7E, 4,731', 71 bpd, 09-28-2012; Soterra, 6H-l, 3S 7E, 3,721', 23 bpd, 02-02- 2012. In addition to Devon's former wells, Encana has 3 subpar wells operating in St. Helena Parish, as fol- lows: Weyerhaeuser, 73H-1, 1S 4E, 5,137', 40 bpd, 11-22- 2011; Weyerhaeuser, 60H- 1/2, 1S 4E, 4,969", 82 bpd, 02-27-2013. (Note: production is re- ported by unit rather than by well in Louisiana. The two Weyerhaeuser 60H-1 and 60H-2 wells in Septem- ber averaged 164 barrels of oil per day.) Devon's lack of success is believed to be due to 2 main fallacies. First, the lat- erals were drilled too high in the formation. Encana and Goodrich agree the lat- eral should be roughly 30'- 50' above the bottom of the formation. The Devon drills ,were 70'+ above the bottom. Second, when frack- ing the wells Devon used a minimal amount of proppant (sand, etc). Devon ranged from 90,000 #'s of proppant per stage for the Richland Farms 74H-1 to 320,000 #'s per stage for the Weyer- haeuser 14H-1. Meanwhile, Encana has ranged as high as 1 million #'s per stage, but the current thinking is 450,000 #'s per stage is the ideal amount. Goodrich has commit- ted to drilling 3 wells in the former Devon holdings and the play. As of November 25 the Goodrich Weyerhaeuser 51H-1 in TIS R4E in St. Hel- ena Parish, (about 2 miles west of Chipol a) had reached a depth of over 12,239' of a planned 19,500' drill. Go- odrich has also permitted Blades 33H in Tangipahoa Parish. Rumors are the 3rd well will be in East Feliciana Parish near the Richland Farms well. Since Encana is rumored to be focusing on Mississippi for now, the future of the TMS in the Florida Parishes may well hinge on the results from these three Goodrich wells. Meanwhile, Goodrich con- tinues operations in Amite County, Mississippi. Frack- ing of the Huff 18-7H-1 well should be in full swing today while drilling of the CMR 8-5H-1 is in the early days of being drilled. Stay tuned!
