Psalm 8:3 When I consider
thy heavens, the work of
thy fingers, the moon and
the stars, which thou hast
ordained;
V. 4 What is man, that thou
art mindful of him? and the
son of man, that thou vis-
itest him?
Here we see the magnifi-
cent of God and the awe of
man.
Have you ever considered
the handiwork of God?
How God made things on a
grand scale; but also on the
smallest? That is because
God is not only interested
in the big picture but also
the smallest detail. God
loves us for who we are and
he knows every detail of
our lives. Yet, we still can
come to Him, repent of our
sin and He will forgive us
and save us!
YES, “what is man?” Why
would Almighty God bother
with man? To understand
we must go back to John
3:16, “For God so
loved…”. This explains
why God has held back his
wrath and judgment from
this world we live in. Are
you glad God loves you? I
am!!
God Bless,

The twenty third annual
Chili Cook Off will high-
light the weekend in
Downtown LaGrange on
Saturday October 26. The
event begins at 1 and ends
at 5.
This community event is
sponsored by the
Downtown LaGrange
Development Authority and
historically draws over 1500
people to LaFayette Square
in Downtown LaGrange . It
is a fun, family friendly
event and is a great way for
local groups to raise funds
and increase public aware-
-ness about their charities
and causes.
Members of the community
will purchase a $5.00 ticket
for the chance to sample a
variety of chili and cast a
vote for their favorite. Chef
Henry Menard of Kimble’s
Food by Design and Jeremy
McCosh , food service
director at LaGrange
College, will be serving as
Chili Cook Off judges this
year to select the Best
Overall Chili winner. The
first place winner will
receive a cash prize of
$200.00, second place earn-
ing a $100.00 prize. There
is also the opportunity for
cook off participants to earn
prize money for the Best
Decorated Booth and the
People’s Choice award for
Best Chili. All Cook Off
entrants will earn some
money just by participating,
as the proceeds from the
ticket sales will be equally
divided among them, after
the event expenses have
been covered.
The Downtown LaGrange
Development Authority has
opened the event up to local
groups and organizations in
the community that have a
cause that they would like
to raise funds for. Last
year’s winners, Dr. Bill
Miller Orthodontics -
Judge’s choice and Beall’s
Plumbing - People’s choice
for best chili will be com-
peting again this year.
Some of the other groups
and their sponsors partici-
pating this year include
Emmaus Shelter/ LaGrange
Banking Company, Troup
County Prevention
Coalition/Twin Cedars,
Harmony House/ Charter
Bank, Delta Sigma Theta
alumnae, United Way/PNC
Bank, Hope for a
Day/Titlebucks, DASH for

Georgia Hospice/Island
Entertainment.
Event goers can also pur-
chase soft drinks and
lemonade during the Chili
Cook Off. Mama Jama will
attend the event and will
pass out free children’s
books at her tent on the
Square while supplies last.

Gizmo is at it yet again.
It was bedtime.
Everybody was settling
down for the evening. I
saw Gizmo sneaking
around the back of the
love seat. Stupid cat was
trying to come between
the trash basket and the
end table, and I told him
he was stupid. He got
down on his stomach like
he was looking for some-
thing. About that time I
felt fur on top of my
foot. For a second it did-
n’t dawn on me that it
was not Gizmo’s fur.
Let me tell you we
have a house full of ani-
mals. Dylan has a white
rat, named Popcorn,
Michael has a hamster
named Lucy. We have
about seven gold fish and
I’m sure they have been
named something. We
have Gizmo and
McKenize the dog.
After a second with
this fur on my foot I
yelled ekeeeeeeeeeeeee.
It seemed like no one
heard me. Than I realized
nothing was coming out
of my mouth. I yelled
Phyllis I think about
three times before I actu-
ally got it out. Finally I
was able to say rat
because by this time I
saw Lucy on my foot. I
jerked it out like it was
on fire and Lucy went
flying though the air with
the greatest of ease. I
keep yelling Phyllis,
Michael, rat, rat, rat, and
than I yelled Rosie.
Don’t know where that
came from.
Well by this time
Michael is running
though the house yelling
Pippy there’s a rat and
than I heard Pippy said
it’s Lucy. Michael really
took off than because
Gizmo is dead after
Lucy. He finally found
her under the chair. I
don’t know if she is
scared because of all the
noise but I know this for
a fact. It will take every-
body awhile to doze back
off the sleep, including
me.
I try not to be
afraid of Lucy but I can’t
bring myself to hold her.
I will be honest if it had
been Dylan’s white rat,
Popcorn, I wouldn’t type
this story right now.

Teen Maze is a hands-on
educational opportunity
for all of the 9th grade
students of Troup County.
The 3rd Annual Teen
Maze is scheduled for
October 29-31 at the
Callaway Conference
Center of West Georgia
Technical College. Parent
Night-Community
Preview Night is October
29 from 5-7:45 p.m.
October 30-31 will be
Teen Maze student days.
Teen Maze promotes
awareness with teens nav-
igating from one station
to another in the Maze
while experiencing life-
like situations. Teens
learn about the conse-
quences of teen pregnan-
cy, sexually-transmitted
disease, underage drink-
ing, drug use, and the
judicial system with pos-
sible jail time as a result
of their choices during the
Maze. Troup County con-
tinues to remain above
the Georgia and national
averages in the number of
teen pregnancies and
youth sexually transmit-
ted desease (STD rates).
The ultimate goal of Teen
Maze is to demonstrate
the best pathway to a
timely high school gradu-
ation and a successful
future. Students partici-
pating in Teen Maze have
stated in follow-up sur-
veys that having accurate
information has enabled
them to make better
choices.
Teen Maze is locally
funded by community
partners like United Way
of West Georgia, Wal-
Mart Distribution Center,
City of LaGrange, Junior
Service League and Troup
County Health Dept.
There is also an enormous
amount of in-kind support
each year from a wide
array of other community
partners and individuals.
Please contact Jane
Gannon Simms, R.N.
with the Troup County
Health Dept. to volunteer
or receive further info at
706-298-3650.
