(7:10p)1000 Cutting firewood for the coming winter desirable species, but foresters point out that months is not a happy thought during a swel- almost all species can be used as firewood if tering heat wave, but the Georgia Forestry properly cured. Residents who use wood Commission advises that now is the time to burning stoves and fireplaces are cautioned face that chore if dry, well seasoned wood is not to burn wood that has been treated with to be available for the heating season, preservatives as it may produce poisonous Spring is the ideal season for cutting wood, fumes. which allows a longer time for wood to cure, but for those who didn't get around to the task, it's late, but not too late, according to veteran woodcutters. After the green wood is cut, it should be stacked above ground level on some type of foundation to allow air to circulate beneath the pile. The top of the stack should be cov- ered with plastic, tin or some other material and the sides should be left open for circula- tion. Oak, hickory, ash andbeech are the most Landowners who cut firewood from their own woodlot are urged by the Commission to be selective by taking out only inferior trees or those that need to be taken for thin- ning purposes. It is also recommended that some standing dead trees be left for wildlife habitat. Additional information on gathering fire- wood and safety measures that should be taken when using wood-fired heating appli- ances is available at all Georgia Forestry Commission offices .........

It's Faith That Gave Us Freedom By KYLE WOODRN p,or of  End lpt Ctam The phrase, "One Nation Under God" has received a lot of publicity over this past week. I was out of town on a mission trip with my church when I saw the headlines and had to pick up a paper to see what was going on. It has been interesting to see how quick- ly Washington responded to this issue and to see how quickly our elected officials dropped party identifications to stand together in an over- whelming majority to con- demn the ruling and to sup- port our "Pledge" as it is. Last week we stood as a nation to celebrate the free- dom we have long enjoyed in the good ole USA and we should do so. This year we Vaughan Transport 116 Cooley Ind.

So why the ruckus over one little phrase? When an Islamic militant group attacked our country we were told that our battle was not a religious one, but one against terrorism. Well, it may not be a religious war to us but I promise you it is for Osama bin Ladin and his followers. For to them there is no freedom of choice of faith; according to them it is Islam or death. There is no freedom for women, you be long to your father and then to your husband. And ulti- mately there is no internal peace that comes from being free from sin and deatl For in Islam there is no assurance of salvation; even Mohammed did not know if he would go to heaven when he died. You see, in America we know freedom because our country was founded on Christian principles. We may want to rewrite history to ignore that, but our founding fathers knew that without that foundation we would not stand. Even the founding fathers that were not Christian supported this foundation. We ofte n quote Jesus when He says, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." But in doing so we miss what He is saying. The "truth" He speaks of is not a concept or principle or teaching, it is Himself. For Jesus goes on to say, "So if the Son (Jesus) sets you free, you will be free indeed." (John 8:32,36) Later in John 14:6 Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." You see, our freedom is linked to being "One Nation Under God." Name one Islamic country that offers 1/10th of the freedom we enjoy, You have the freedom to have no faith in the USA, not so in an Islamic nation. So, even ff you do not wish to say this line of the pledge, at least in this country you have that freedom. In Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, or the Sudan you're Islamic by force.
