And this destruction will come as a judg- ment from God. This judgment can only be averted if we seek God and turn ourselves and our country around. Responsibility for the ungod- liness which now prevails in our great country belongs to each one of us. But why me, you are probably thinking, to yourself. Because God says so! You see, God is going to hold us respon- sible for everything. For what we have done and for what we failed to do. In the Word of God (the Holy Bible) it says, "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his com- mandments; for this is the whole duty of man" (Ecclesiastes 12:13). We failed our duty in many different ways! We stood by as our nation was being corrupted and pervert- ed, and we let ungodliness seep into every aspect of our lives. Everything which God considers abomination is now acceptable in America Some of our political leaders now brazenly support things which God Almighty called wicked and abominable.

Through EVVE, Virginia DMV can certify a customer's birth record through databases in 31 states, including Virginia. The trans- action takes place while the customer is at the counter and prevents eligible customers from being turned away only to return another day with a paper record to complete their DMV business. "We have already been able to verify more than 4,400 birth records for our customers, nearly 3,000 of which were Virginia birth records," said DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb. "These are customers who previously would have been turned away from DMV until they could produce a paper birth certificate. We are excited to offer this service, and our customers are appreciative." The cost to the customer for EVVE certification of a Virginia birth record is $14. The other participating states set their own fees, which vary from state to state. He also pointed out that his up tempo style did not mean that the post player would not get many shots, rather that all players would be working hard to get in their right position so that any player open could get a good shot. Dockery realizes that he is taking a job that has a long tradition of getting to the playoffs on the state level. He is confident that he and his team will continue in that tradition.
