FCMS Host 2018 Special Olympics

Community, Sports

Fannin Co. Middle School was the sight for the 2018 Special Olympics on Wednesday as athletes young and old competed in a full court dash, a tennis ball throw and the long jump.  The event, originally scheduled to take place on the high school football field was moved to the FCMS gym less than 24 hours the scheduled start time.  Heavy rain and thunderstorms were in the forecast but thankfully for the athletes  it never happened.

Without the hard work and dedication of 4 individuals the last minute move wouldn’t have went so effortlessly.  Ms. Gini Bell(Director of Special Olympics-Fannin) and Fannin Middle School Administrators, Keith Nuckolls(Principle) and Assistant Principles Dr. Connie Huff and Tony Tichler, made the transition from outside to inside allowing everyone to focus on the athletes.  The remainder of the FCMS teachers and Staff deserve a huge pat on the back as well.  The normal school day was reworked including bringing each grade in at different times to cheer on the stars of the day.  The cafeteria staff fed the everyday students on time while the athletes were fed by Chic-fil-a.

Now to the really important part of the day…the ATHLETES!  From all over Fannin and Gilmer counties these athletes range from elementary students to senior citizens.  There were smiles all around from the faces of the students, volunteers and of course the athletes.  There were also tears. Tears from those that didn’t receive medals or compete to the level that their hearts told them they could.  At the end of the day every athlete was full of excitement in knowing that they gave their all and most importantly…they had fun!  The only real truth to take way from this event and in life is to know that no matter what happens,  you are still a WINNER.

Ask the Doc! With Dr. Raymond Tidman

Health

Today on Ask the Doc! we are welcoming Dr. Raymond Tidman, who will be filling in for Doctor William Whaley while he is on vacation. This Morning #BKP and Dr. Tidman discuss health concern and answer: 1. After my last regular exam, my doctor said the results showed cervical dysplasia. What does that mean? Is it cancer? 2. My allergies have caused my throat to feel inflamed and caused sinus drainage. I have seen a doctor but I am still dealing with a cough a week or so later. Is there anything I can do to help get rid of this cough? 3. Can too little sleep be a cause of weight gain? This segment is brought to you by Georgia Cancer Specialists, affiliated with Northside Hospital.

God Has Your Number

Religion

Do you think God has your Number?

He knows how many times you breathed yesterday. He holds your breath in His hand. God absolutely knows every move you make. The Lord has the hairs on your head numbered. He most definitely tracts your life. My friend, if the Lord has a call on your Life for the ministry, you couldn’t get away in a race car.

What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?-Psalms 117

What is the longest chapter in the Bible? –Psalms 119

Which chapter is in the center of the Bible? Psalms 118

Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118

Facts: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118

Add these numbers up, and you get 1188

(NKJV)What is the center verse in the Bible? Psalms 118:8.


“It is better to trust in The Lord than to put confidence in man.”

 

If this is coincident, it is a good one.

God can be in the center of your life if you will just ask, and let Him.

From time to time, I have been sent to share a ministry call with God’s people. He has their number, I would like to share one such call with you just to show you how detailed God is when it comes to the life of His children, and the work of His kingdom.

Some years ago, my friend, the late George Marshal, and I were going to Dunklin Ministries for a Saturday men’s gathering. Dunklin is a large farm between Stuart and Okeechobee, Fl. It is a rehab center used to rebuild lives and, a very good one, I might add. At one time, we had a man here by the name of Jim Way who could bring men together and make things happen. We would have as many as 700 men there for seminars and to worship the Lord. Sometimes in the middle of the previous night, I was caught up in the presence of the Lord. The Lord and I were standing in front of a long table seated with men my age; late fifties to sixties.  The Lord was inspecting these men military style just like a company commander would do, along with his Platoon Sgt.  I was a Platoon Sgt. at one time in the Marines, and The Lord and I were pulling an inspection on these men. I don’t know why the Lord chose this manner, but we were looking over every man, face-to-face. The Lord would get a good look at each man. When we got to the left end of the table, the Lord turned sharply and pointed to a young man in his middle twenties. He was at the far right corner of the table facing us, Ronnie Rinker had invited him. He was a Southern Baptist boy. The Lord turned and looked at him and said,“I am calling this one into the ministry. And I said, but Lord, he is so young. The Lord said, “I know, but I am going to train him. I am going to teach him. I am going to develop him, but he is the one I am calling.” At that point, every scratch and every cut on that old, wooden table was embedded into my mind, along with each man’s face and location at the table. The next morning I had no recollection of this, what-so-ever. George and I went into the dining hall. While we were in line, George saw an empty table and said let’s throw our Bibles on this table, and that will save us a seat.  We went through the breakfast line at eight o’clock.  After we got our food, George said, Bob let’s sit over here at this table; I know these guys. I said, but our Bibles are over there, but he said they would be ok. I sat down at the right corner of the table, and a young, good-looking man sat down across from me. As we started to eat, I felt like I knew him from somewhere. I asked him if we had ever met and he said, no I asked where he worked and what he did?. I said are you sure; he again said, “I just don’t know you.” I am sitting there starting to eat, not thinking any more about him when all at once I looked at that beat up handmade table and knew every scratch and cut on it. Everything came back to me, I looked at the man and knew that I had been there in the middle of the night. Every man was in his proper place, and the young man across from me was exactly where he was when Jesus called him. I said, “Have you ever thought about the ministry?” He said, “Yes I have.”

“Good!” I said, “Because you’re in it.” Then I shared his calling from the Lord. What a mighty God! Look how he used Ronnie to get God’s man there, and how the Lord used George to get me to the right table with all the scratches on it and all the man I had seen the night before. The Word says He knows every hair on our head; but I know one thing for sure He walks among the tables at Dunklin in the middle of the night and knows every scratch on them! Yes, He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is alive and well and will speak and call men today.

The Lord Jesus can interact with us today here on the earth, just as if we were in heaven. Father God has everything down to a science, just like he does your life.    Let’s look at some facts:

  •  He knew everything about the meeting, date, time, location, and who would be there.
  • When he caught me up and showed me the scratches and cuts on the table in the dining hall at Dunkin:  they are rough, handmade tables that were made by the men going through the program. All of them filled with cuts and scratches, and they look just alike, yet I knew the exact table.
  • He knew every man there and where he would sit the next day.
  • Ronnie thought he was inviting that young man to the meeting.  Ronnie was working for Jesus under the power of the Holy Spirit and didn’t know it.
  • George Marshal took me to the right table and never knew he was working under a mandate from God.

Here is the thing that just blows me away, not one of us could have been late!Nothing in the world could have stopped any of us. Not one man could have said, I don’t think I will go today. No one could have sat in the wrong place.

Not one of us had any thought of being led by the Lord. We were in the natural and walking under the power and order of God at the same time. Your next words to somebody could be out of the heart of God. No one knew about this, but those of us at the table.

Got put that meeting together like a beautiful piece of music. You can’t beat Him.

What the Lord Jesus wants to be done, He will do! The Holy Spirit was leading every man to that table, and not one of us knew it. Sometimes being led by the Spirit of God may not be what we think at all. We felt nothing. Your next phone call, a trip to the store, or the post office may be your most anointed moment of the week; ordered by the Lord, don’t miss it. If we belong to the Lord, we are naturally supernatural when He needs for us to be.

 Your loving heavenly Father can unscramble your life and seat you at His table where you really don’t belong.” Grace, Grace WonderfulGrace”. There is no doubt about it; God sees tomorrow before we see today.

Short Takes – “Omnibus”

Opinion

Omnibus is an ominous word. I once thought it was a double-decker bus in England. Now, whenever I see the word attached to a spending bill, I automatically know somebody is going to get a double decker screwing and it’s not politicians. Under the circumstances of the Omnibus Spending Bill cobbled together in a few days by four “bipartisan” senators who rank as the ttititual leaders of the corrupt “establishment, I thinks we may be in trouble. Politicians create the problem, then tell us they’ll solve the problems if only we re-elect them to office…BS!

I rather like the idea of a successful novice businessman seizing hold of the political machine, applying the tactics of business management (sales and profit) to its management style, firing heads who don’t understand the process and re-establishing the tenants of competent leadership. Apart from Trump, one or two other such successful leaders without prior experience, have revealed themselves. First time Senator David Perdue of Georgia and Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas come immediately to mind. But, I drift from my course.

It’s not the deficit spending that bothers me. Deficit spending is good, to a point, for stimulating an economy. As our money is simply fiat money anyway, no longer backed by any tangible asset, like gold, it presents no problem for government simply to print more. That’s what has been done since the 1970’s. It’s all a phony economy manipulated by phony politicians who have no business being there if we are to Make America Great Again.  

What irks me most is giving some level of victory to the obstructionist Marxist Democrat Party, when they have already lost all except the media and their whining voice. They don’t even deserve to be in congress. They lost everything in three consecutive national elections including the empowerment of their chosen Queen, Hillary Clinton. To still pander to the Democrat party’s demands is to insult Americans everywhere, including the President.

More to the issue of Conservatives, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, stand as the finest examples of corrupt political leadership,. They are the  complete antithesis of honest government. They are of the “swamp.” The just passed Omnibus spending bill, reluctantly signed by President Trump, is their baby. It’s a hodge-poge of idiocy, spending tax payer funds on projects that only invigorate Democrat politicians.

The irritating glee and euphoria shown by Sen. Chuckie Schemer and the Democrats dimming light, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, should be enough to alarm Conservatives everywhere. When we stop gagging, we should turn our undivided attention to removing these  RiNO’s, and many others, from office. Every incumbent Republican congressman, without at least an 80% Conservative voting record, should be challenged and removed from office.

The Senate is still locked up by a Senate rules change authored by once crazy Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, a staunch and rabid Progressive, to keep Republicans from winning any votes. It’s the filibuster rule that ensures a stacked deck against the opposition and allows the Majority Leader to change between a majority vote (51) to a super majority vote (60), when it suits his him.  It’s still in play and McConnell doesn’t use it. Hence, the Omnibus spending bill, an unread 2000 page document, yet another trick to keep the “deep state” alive,. That’s the epitome of corruption, not the hallmark of statesmanship.  I’m sick at heart with the Republican Party. They keep begging for money to support conservatives against those rascally Democrats. They’ll not get another dime until I see America Made Great Again.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

Food Safety Workshop March 27

Community, Health

By:  Eddie Ayers, County Extension Agent

About 48 million people in the U.S. (1 in 6) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases, according to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is a significant public health burden that is largely preventable.

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the nation’s food safety system by shifting the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing it. Congress enacted FSMA in response to dramatic changes in the global food system and in our understanding of foodborne illness and its consequences, including the realization that preventable foodborne illness is both a significant public health problem and a threat to the economic well-being of the food system.

The FDA has finalized seven major rules to implement FSMA, recognizing that ensuring the safety of the food supply is a shared responsibility among many different points in the global supply chain for both human and animal food. The FSMA rules are designed to make clear specific actions that must be taken at each of these points to prevent contamination.

In response to the rule concerning the sale of fresh fruits and produce, the Fannin County UGA Extension office is hosting a one day workshop for produce growers on Tuesday, March 27th at the Kiwanis Fairgrounds located at 124 Jones Street in Blue Ridge.  The class will start at 8:00 a.m. and run until 5:00p.m. The training will cover the standardization curriculum designed by the Produce Safety Alliance, which meets the regulatory requirements of the Produce Rule under FSMA.

The cost of the class is $15.00 payable in cash or check at the door and it includes lunch.  In order to attend the workshop you must register at the following link: http://bit.ly/blueridgemarch.  The course will provide a foundation of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and co-management information, FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements and details on how to develop a farm food safety plan.

Any produce grower who grows, packs, harvests, and/or holds covered produce, makes over $25,000 in annual produce sales and does not qualify for a Produce Safety Rule exemption is required to attend a training under new federal regulations.

Individuals that attend the workshop are expected to gain a basic understanding of the requirements in the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and how to meet them successfully.  Participants will also learn about microorganisms relevant to produce safety and where they can be found on the farm. You will also learn how to identify microbial risks, practices that reduce risks, and how to begin implementing produce safety practices on the farm along with understanding the parts of a farm food safety plan and how to begin writing one.

For more information email me at [email protected] or call me at the UGA Extension office in Gilmer County or Fannin County.
