I just know people in the South, because I am a Southerner. I suppose wherev- er you go, you will find some prejudice against people who are "not like u." Even in North Georgia, where I have lived most of my years, when people from Florida began moving to North Georgia to retire or just to get away from Miami, Florida, the natives of North Georgia had to make some adjustments for the newcomers. There was a popular saying that if you were not a native, you were "from off." Either you were a native of the mountains or you were "from off" some- where. Now, that attitude is not the same as racism, but it is still prejudice.

Jesus will Member FDIC ............ The Way l See It  Harold Willis If racism is ever overcome, it will be because of the influ- ence of Jesus Christ. Too little credit is given for the influence of Christianity in overcoming slavery, both in America and the rest of the world. It was not the Emancipation Proclamation, signed by President Abraham Lincoln that overcame slavery. I know what made slavery illegal and set free the Africans who were held in bondage. But it was the influence of Christianity on people in places of influence, in government and the media, as well as peo- ple in he underground who worked to free the slaves. That influence had been fomenting for many years before Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. In England, William Wilberforce had worked to pass a law to have slavery outlawed in that country long before it was accomplished in America. But passing laws will never overcome racial or religious or any other kind of prejudice. Only a change of heart will accomplish that only Jesus can change hearts. Therefore, it is appropriate that churches observe Racial Reconciliation Sunday And it is appropriate that we point to Jesus Christ Who receives each of us, not on the color of our PUBLIC NOTICES --HH-I STATE OF GEORGIA, TROUP COUNTY TO THE HONORABLE ALLEN B. KEEBLE, JUDGE OF SUPE- RIOR COURT, COWETA JUDI- CIAL CIRCUrI2. We, the members of the Troup County grand jury drawn and sworn for the November 1999 Term January 2000 Special Session, respectfully make the following presentments: We wish to express our appre- ciation to District Attorney Peter John Skandalakis, and all who assisted him in the prepa- ration and presentation of the cases brought before us for action We commend the District Attorney and his staff for their professionalism and attention to detail. Their pre- sentations were invaluable in making our decision. We also wish to thank Mr. Marion Carson, our bailiff, for his efficiency and support. We commend law enforcement personnel, who came before us, whose dedication to duty deserves our support, encour- agement, and sincere thanks. We are impressed with their demonstrated diligence and competence. We additionally commend the Sheriff's Office and recom- mend that the deputies are placed on the same pay scale as the police officers of the LaGrange Police Department. We recommend the building of a new Justice Center compris- ing of courtrooms and the offices necessary to adminis- BRAND NEW'99 DICK Edwin L. Madan, ltI Lawrence C. Hop@: Memory S. Johnso Lee R.

We believe that it would be more cost effective to invest in new facilities rather than to reno- vate the present courthouse. Finally, Superior Court Judge Allen Keeble charged this Grand Jury pursuant to O.C.G.A. 15-2-7 with the duty to recommend to the County Commissioners the fees to be paid to grand jurors, traverse jurors, and bailiffs in the year 2000. Therefore, we respectfully rec- ommend that grand juror and traverse juror fees be raised to $50.00 per day and that the bailiff fees be raised to $80.00 per day. Respectfully Submitted, Wilbert B.
