Boy-Scouts-Food-Campaign

The number of young boys from Boy Scout Troop 107 in Taylors, SC, just about matched the number of degrees the thermometer registered.  It was in the low 20s Sunday morning and the pavement in front of Taylors First Baptist Church were cold and unforgiving. But the boys were there, in full uniform, and smiling! It was the second part of Scouting for Food Campaign, an annual event by Scout Troops around the country that provides a collection of non-perishable food stuffs for distribution to families in need. The Scouts met church-goers as they made their way to the building with plastic and paper bags holding food.  They were all smiles as the Scouts approached them, and cheerfully asked, “May I take that for you sir or ma’am?”  It was genuine American generosity with a helping “Doing a Good Deed” on the side.

The six o’clock news is saturated with gruesome stories of murders, home invasions, rape of young women, car-jackings, robberies and scams designed to take advantage of vulnerable senior citizens living alone.

The liberal media and school officials are mostly silent on the fact that no less than 135 gangs, including some of the most dangerous in the world are operating in the upstate cities of Spartanburg, Greenville and Anderson, but informed citizens know the danger and are very concerned.

A Love Story

WOL---Front-Page

The miraculous true love story that follows is that of two young people whose lives were changed when Cliff dialed a wrong number. It is also the story of a loving mother who sought help from the source of all wisdom and power. Finally, it is the story of how a group of former alcoholics and drug addicts, who are now new creatures in Christ, have used the Holy Scriptures to tap into the source of all wisdom and power and allow the love of Jesus to transform the lives of the most hopeless alcoholics and drug addicts.

Working together, with obvious divine guidance, they all contribute to the current happiness and joy of Christina and Cliff.

Costing Every Man, Woman and Child Estimated $1,300 per year

Greenville County Sheriff Steve Loftis and other law enforcement officials have confirmed that a majority of all crimes are committed by individuals involving or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. The fallout from addiction and drug abuse  makes up a large portion of the workload of law enforcement, emergency medical personnel and facilities and is a burden on families and county taxpayers.

A study conducted by Tripp Umbach Healthcare Consulting, Inc. estimates that South Carolina spends more than $5 billion annually on substance abuse including criminal justice costs, social services, healthcare, loss of productivity and treatment.
