According to con- ference organizers, tickets are currently still available for the Wise event, but if recent shows are any indication, this stop could quickly sell out. "We are excited to share this event with the people of the Wise area," added Cameron. "Those attending will be a part of something very special, as we will turn the movie into a LIVE experience."

"I encourage all Virginians to take time this year to thank one of the more than 840,000 veterans who call Virginia home. These initiatives at our beautiful state parks are another small way by which we can express our gratitude and honor their service to our Commonwealth and our nation." Over the holiday weekend, Virginia State Parks Will also present special nature and history programs, flag retirement ceremonies and other events to honor veterans and their fami- lies.

Many of the stories I write about job related was different episodes but it all happened on the same job. I remember that on a job that I have just recently written a story about, when the company had grown to be the second biggest contractor in the United States, they were holding that title of being in second place. On the job they had a foreman who had been with the company 31 years. So near the end of a job, he told me, he said, "Jones, we are going to lose 3 million dollars on this job. Of course, I've been with the company 31 years and we have lost on every job that we had ever done since l've been with the company." I called him by a nick name which was Alabama. 1 said, "Would you explain something to me?" He said, "l'd be glad to." I said, "If this company has lost money on every job that they ever had done, how did they manage to grow to be. the second largest problem. 1 will be glad to explain that to you. When we bid this job on here, we bid it on expecting to make 17 million dollars. We're only going to make a profit of 14 million dollars, so therefore, we lost 3 million dollars." I guess, you can juggle figures and make them say what you want them to say. And I find a lot of folks today doing the same thing with the Bible. God said what he meant, meant what he said and I think : it's forever settled in Heaven. : But there is so many people today that I meet that don't want : to come to grips with the truth ?so they juggle the sayings in the Bible to fit their lifestyle. lt won't work. It never has workedl It never will work. Black's always been black. White's always been white. And both of these is only a definition for a color. There is no definition to the Word of God. You can follow the guidelines as they were written, or you'll get lost somewhere along the way.
