BY PASTOR PAUL TUREK Faith Alliance Church Sontething has got to be done to curb the underage drinking in eastern Montana. The talk is all about making stiffer penalties for those who are caught and to make the par- eats attend alcohol awareqess classes with their children who are caught in possession of alco- hol or drugs. This all sounds good and is needed if we are to see less not more underage drinking in our community. Even as underage drinking is the Ibcus of current lawmakers, we must take a look at the adults who enable our young peol~le to drink alcohol. Our laws are very clear in the state of Montana; no one under the age of 21 can purchase alco- Ilol. No identification that you are older than 21, no beer! Sounds like a pretty easy way to curb underage drinking doesn't it'? The problem is not with the law, the problem is with the adults! As adults, we have twist- ed logic when it comes to this sort of thing. We rationalize the chil- dren are going to drink anyway, so we might as well make it easi- er for them. We follow this same logic when it comes to premarital sex; they are going to do it, we might as well make it safe for them. Funny, I have yet to hear any adults saying this same thing regarding other drugs like cocaine or meth. If the children are going to do these drugs, why not make it easier for them to obtain them? At least this way, we would know when or where The problem is not with the law, the problem is with the adults! As adults, we have twisted logic when it comes to this sort of thing. they are getting loaded! As adults we also need to think about the examples we are set- ting for our young people. Do you think we may be sending a mixed message when we tell our children not to drink on the one hand, but then on the other hand have fund-raising events for local sports teams where the sale of alcohol is condoned? Maybe the real issue for the adults is the fact we have a diffi- Culbertson JMG Club Presents ......

Regardless of our age or social standing, there will come a day when we have to give an account of our lives before the Lord. Everything we have ever said or done or even thought will be brought before the Lord and will be judged by Him. One day Jesus said to His dis- ciples, "There will always be temptations to sin, but how terri- ble it will be for the person who does the tempting. It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around the neck than to face the punishment that is in store for harming ONE OF THESE LIT- TLE ONES." (Luke 17:1-2) We know there are lifelong consequences when people become addicted to alcohol. The younger .you start, the higher addiction rate and the more neg- ative affects upon that person and that community. Something has got to be done to curb underage drinking in eastern Montana. Let"s begin with the" adults who purchase and provide alcohol to our young people. Grow up. Be an adult who really cares about the future of the next generation. Stop harming our children by providing them with alcohol! )i ................ ff ........ ii ~i~i!~i~ " ~:~i~i Five generations of first-born daughters gather together to introduce Hansen-Lantz to her great-great-grandmother Mildred Gunderson.

Local church holds seminar According to the Apostle Paul, the truth of Christianity and the hope of humanity rise and fall on one question which is asked by seekers, skeptics and even believers: Did the resurrection of Jesus really happen? In a challenging seminar designed for those who ask this question and for those who would like to answer it with assurance, the public is invited to Faith Alliance Church in Sid- ney on Sunday at 6 p.m. This seminar is live via satel- lite and will cover common chal- lenges to the resurrection from religious and secular skeptics, the historical evidence that sup- ports the claim of Christianity, and the life-changing implica- tions of the resurrection of Jesus.

If the flutist, for example, doesn't have a part in the first pages of the symphony, he does- n't sit and sulk, staring around resentfully at the other players blending their har- monies. He waits, and there on page 18, he sees his part com- ing up. He wets his lips. He Ted Simonson takes a Columnist d e e p breath,and just at the right moment, there is heard in the concert hall a sweet and beautiful phrase exactly planned for that part of the com- position.
