    Thank you
    Providence Baptist Church would like to say thank you to all those who stopped by our tents at the Bushnell Fall Festival! We enjoyed meeting and getting to know all of you! We were able to distribute 2,000 bottles of water and many tracts containing the Gospel. Seventeen individuals professed that they had accepted Christ as their Savior!

    Mr. South Sumter
    It’s that time of the year when we think of football,
    Fall Festival, and of course … Mr. South Sumter! Begun in 1988 at a Powder Puff Game, Mr. South Sumter has grown into an annual event filled with laughter, great
    entertainment, and a
    wonderful way for students at South Sumter to earn the money they need for their
    educational field trips, club shirts, and much more.
    The theme this year will be “Jersey Shore” and our Master of Ceremony, Mike “The

    A Silent Public Health Crisis
    Mental Illness Awareness Week. Oct. 2 – 8
    Americans have heard about a slew of public health crises so far this year. Michelle Obama cited childhood obesity. The FDA warned about tainted food and drugs, while the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy applied the term to prescription drug abuse. Without a doubt, anyone who saw the movie “Contagion” would label infectious diseases a pressing public health crisis.

    A different angle
    Robert Wesolowski keeps his word processor hot cranking out propaganda for the democratic political machine, but because he is biased it is hard to understand his writings, so I have included an interpretation table (see below) to help the reader.
    Two wrongs make a right — democrats make a goof but it is OK because Regan, Bush, or any other republican made a similar goof.
    Republicans refuse to negotiate in good faith — if you don’t do it the democrat way, without comment, you are selfish, arrogant, and a loser.

    Can government be run like a business?
    Some Republicans say our government should be “run like a business.” Let’s consider that point. What if you had a medical emergency and dialed 9-1-1? What if the response was a recorded message that said, “We’re very sorry. Our business hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Please call during business hours.” Of course, you would be very frustrated, maybe a little angry at the emergency team.

    Where are the GOP jobs?
    The GOP proudly proclaims that “free markets, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship are the foundations for economic growth and job creation in America.” (Source: majorityleader.gov/jobs/hrp_jobs.pdf.)
    The GOP complains that “more taxation, regulations and litigation will not create jobs.” Therefore, they blame Washington (not the Democats) for the feeble economy. Well, Mr. Majority Leader, where are those jobs?

    Even before Hurricane Irene began wreaking havoc along the eastern seaboard of the United States. electric utilities across the Nation were activating their emergency storm plans. Extra equipment, materials, fuel and food were moved into position, but the most important commodity needed in the wake of Irene are trained, safety-conscious electric line workers.

    Just the facts “Ma’am”
    Do you remember Sgt. Joe Friday from Dragnet and his tagline “Just the facts ma’am?”
    President Obama and his cohorts keep telling us that we need to raise taxes on only some of the American people in order to reduce the deficit. Remember, Democrats never suggest we balanced the budget, they only suggest we reduce the deficit. Let’s see what happens when we apply Joe Friday’s investigative approach to the rhetoric being put forth by the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats.
