Family Dollar To Open In Belvedere
By Haley Hughes Work on a new shopping center is under way at the corner of Carmel Street and Edgefield Road. A sign posted at the site says the new center is coming soon, along with a new Family Dollar store. The center will have approximately four fronts, according to Aiken County Planning and Development Director Stephen Strohminger, with Family Dollar as the anchor. The Family Dollar will open in the first half of 2013, said public relations manager Bryn Winburn. It will be approximately 8,000 square feet, and hiring will begin approximately six weeks before the store opens. Those interested in applying can do so by visiting www.familydollar. com. “Our stores typically employ between eight and 10 team members, and we look to hire from the communities we serve,” Winburn wrote in an email. Family Dollar stores offer its customers “a mix of quality name brand products they use everyday; from consumable products such as household paper products and expanded food assortment, to treasures for every home and even quality apparel for men, women and children,” according to the company’s website. It also has seasonal products, like greeting cards and gift wrap. Family Dollar was founded in 1959 in Charlotte, N.C. There are 7,200 stores nationwide with 50,000 employees.

DJ received 1st place in kata, 2nd place in weapons, and 2nd place in sparring. Both came home exhausted with several bumps and bruises, but both gave an amazing showing in a tournament against competitors from other martial arts styles. CSRA Defensive Arts black belt and instructor Ruby Cochran acted as a coach for the two students and also helped run rings at the tournament.

life; no one goes to the Father except by me. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. In John 14 we see that even though Thomas had spent three years with our Lord he was still doubtful but full of questions. Thomas was asking what most of the other disciples were thinking. You see, they believed all the time that Jesus would set up an earthly Kingdom and free them from Roman oppression. And then we call Thomas the Doubter and condemn him when the other disciples were no different in their beliefs than he was. Thomas just asked the questions. We need to learn to recognize seekers in this day and age. They are still asking questions. Many are argumentative – trying to stir up controversy so as to keep their true feelings hidden. Some are immature believers, still sucking on the milk of the Word and never attaining the teeth for the meat. They are “Closet Christians”. The ones that let someone else make the first move. The ones that are slightly ashamed of the Gospel. The Apostle Paul covered that in Romans 1. He recognized the Good News of Jesus Christ for what it really is: The power of God unto salvation to every one
By Pastor Lynn Kirkland Recently, after spending several days at the Hippodrome during the Augusta Futurity, a couple of the guys that attend COWBOY CHURCH regularly were discussing the number of people that either came to our services or stopped by to talk to us to encourage us in the work we were doing. Their final assessment was that there is a large number of “Closet Christians” that need to “come out of the closet” and take a stand for Jesus Christ. I believe that we have a great number of people that, for whatever reason, have not made a commitment to Jesus Christ. Even though they occasionally attend church and know all the “Christian lingo” they are actually seekers. They have something missing and are still seeking it. Let’s take a look at John 14: 5 & 6 and Romans 1:16 to see what I am talking about. John 14:5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going; so how can we know the way to get there?” John 14:6 Jesus answered him, “I am the way, the truth, and the
that believes. Today many educated people reject and condemn the Gospel. Political Correctness demands a strange sort of tolerance these days. You can pray to a universal god, but not Jesus. (Listen up School Board). We must be tolerant of Allah and universal god but no one must be tolerant of believers in the Good News of Jesus Christ. In Romans 1:16 Paul says that The Good News is the power to save us from our lostness. He says that it is just-as-if we never sinned. This is Good News! This is the power of God! I hope somebody is shouting and saying Amen right now! Acts 1:8 declares that we will be witnesses when the power of the Holy Spirit comes on us! We will not be ashamed of the Gospel. Where do you stand today? Are you a seeker that thinks church membership is going to take you to Heaven? Or, are you a closet Christian that needs to grow up in Christ? Or, do you realize that you are lost, dying,
and going to Hell? In either case call me: Dr. Lynn Kirkland EVANGELIST / REVIVALIST Impact Ministries International, Inc.

Participating in the “Sporter” category, Cadets Patrick Meyer, Anna Norris, Krista Smart, and Jacob Gue all pulled together to post the high team score in the championship match. NJROTC Rifle competitions are conducted in an Olympicstyle, three position format. The cadets use precision pellet rifles to score on targets at a distance of 10 meters from the prone, standing, and kneeling positions. Scores are tabulated for each participant individually and collectively as a four person team. The top shooters for the Mustangs, juniors Anna Norris and Krista Smart, both earned individual honors in addition to the team championship.
