Read Luke 5:1-11Decisions we consider insignificant may actually beimportant in God's eyes. Obedience in the small detailsprepares the believer for obedience in all things.Today's passage shows that Peter experienced a gentlefirst lesson in following the Lord.Peter's initial interaction with Christ seemed insignificant. We can assume Jesus asked Peter for theuse of his boat, which meant that the weary fisherman put aside his cleanup duties in order to steer thecraft for an itinerant preacher. It was a small decision, but the reward was noteworthy. Peter had a front-row seat for the message Jesus proclaimed to the crowd on the beach.The future disciple was convinced of Christ's authority because of what he heard. Therefore, he obeyedJesus' second request to let down the nets for a catch, even though doing so contradicted everything heknew about fishing. The results were miraculous--a catch so great that a second boat had to come andtake part of the haul.Jesus was gently easing Peter into a place of absolute obedience. The fisherman's brief but compellinghistory of submitting to the Lord's will and experiencing His blessing convinced him that giving up every-thing to follow Christ was the wisest choice. The rewards for that decision are both innumerable and im-measurable.Peter's experience of increasingly demanding calls to obedience and sacrifice isn't unique. That's howthe Father teaches His children to follow His will. So don't assume a decision is insignificant--God is set-ting you on a course to fulfill His good purpose for your life. Choose to obey Him always.

Dear Editor:I am grateful that a Kadoka citycouncil member stopped by andstraightened me out on somethings. Seems that some on the citycouncil are adamant that the Com-prehensive Plan is “our plan”.However, I understand that en-vironmental engineers, Schu-macher, Paul & Nohr, authored itat substantial expense to the cityusing statistics furnished by localofficials.First, all those figures quoted inthe proposed Comprehensive Planamounting to millions of dollarsare very stale. The council hasknown this for some time. Anyonethat has contracted knows there isa great difference between what isestimated cost and what is a bidbasis. Subsequent inflation has fur-ther has increased costs. Six mil-lion may not cover the expansivedreams of city planners.That is only a part of the vagueparts of the Plan, as follows:Page 6, “A comprehensive planimpacts not only persons living inthe study area, but also those resi-dents residing and workingthroughout the Kadoka area”.On page 7 “zoning districts” arementioned without specifics.Chapter 4, Page 17. “To sustainan environmental strategy thatsupports an interworking relation-ship between the physical and builtenvironment and also protect theair and water quality to ensurepublic health and safety for the res-idents of Kadoka”. Lawyers wouldcall this “boilerplate” and it soundseerily familiar from another com-prehensive plan I have read by thesame authors.Page 19. “For all new construc-tion in Kadoka, planning and engi-neering must be used as tools tomitigate against hazards posed byhilly topography, high degree of slope and soil instability”.Chapter 6, Page 28. “Land usedefines the physical landscape andprovides justification for zoning ina community”.Page 30. “A city is obligated toassess its development constraintswhen planning for future growth inadjoining areas. They must coordi-nate with the county on all mattersconcerning annexation. Comment:We need more information on an-nexation.Further down, same page. Withthe current comprehensive planonly focusing on land within theCity's incorporated limits the com-mission felt that combining the in-dustrial district with an Agricultural designation wouldsimplify the future land use map.See comment above.Page 31. All lands being an-nexed by the city shall be placed ina No Use designation till the City'sBoard of Adjustment is able to con-duct an investigation and study of the proposed land use of the exist-ing area. For this reason, the Com-mission felt the future land usemap should contain lands outsidethe City's Limits to be classifiedunder this designation”.Comment: Sort of like therancher who didn't want to own allthe land - just that joining his prop-erty.Page 46. “ - - - - extraterritorial jurisdiction for the purposes of pro-moting health, safety, morals andgeneral welfare of the community”.Comment: Define “extraterritor-ial”? Isn't it a stretch to have con-trol of “morals” in a comprehensiveland use plan?Nancy Pelosi's is famous for say-ing, “We have to pass the bill tofind out what is in it”. In my opin-ion the goal is a scheme to wrestcontrol of Kadoka from the electedcity officials. Later we will findwhat the E.P.A. and other ap-pointed government functionariesin Washington D.C. and Pierrethink is good for us.The plan is certainly compre-hensively confusing./s/ Glenn T. FreemanBox 406Kadoka, SD 57543Dear Editor,I agree with Mr. Freeman 100%.I am against zoning and Horizons.When a person can go on anotherperson’s property and tell themwhat to do and how to do it. It is myopinion that this is communism./s/ Stephen RigginsPO Box 43Kadoka, SD 57543
