He said, "In my capacity as the local veterinarian I've had three of these cases that I've had to deal with; one of them ended up being fatal--one animal being responsible for two of them, and another repeat at-large offender being responsible for the other." Gardner quoted the city ordinance, which Continued from front page RC&D would like input on projects by "their January 25th meeting when they will be finalizing their plan. Dan Huter agreed to represent Council on the RC&D council. New city employee, Whitney Kamerdula, has been doing well and selling lots of dog tags-- 50 so far this year. The council discussed, at length, the pros and cons of abandoning the part of an alley running • north and south next to :Andy Goold's property. ; Adjacent property '- owners are agreeable, ' and it seems to pose no • problems for the city, so the abandonment was • approved. Dick Thompson " expressed his desire to be reappointed as Airport Manager for another three- , year term.

The ordinance speciies in what kind of facilities vicious dogs must be kept. Gardner said he thought the ordinance had not been enforced as sternly as it should be. One repeat offender had two dogs in the pound over the weekend and had to pay a $120 tme. "We've got a potential for some pretty stiff fines, so I think we need to start stiffening up what we are citing them because it's getting to be a real problem. We've had some injuries resulting from it, fortunately not human yet, but that's coming too."

Sometimes, I think we ask as though we believe we serve a God that might not be able to do handle something as big as we are asking. So, how big is our God? If you open your Bible and start in Genesis we see God creating the entire world• From darkness to light, water and land, sun and moon and starts, plants and animals, and man and woman. What an awesome God! In the days of Moses, we see God's great power as He set His people free from captivity. David sang songs of praise to God for the mighty ways God saved Ask the Editor his llfe• If we jump forward to the New Testament and we look at the life of Jesus, we see the story of Jesus feeding 5000 with 5 loaves and 2 fish• We read about the many times that Jesus healed the sick• Then we read about Jesus' death on the cross for our sins and of God raising him for the dead• What a great GodlI And when you first believed and asked Jesus into your heart and God saved you, He placed His Holy Spirit in you. What an awesome and big God we serve Ephesians 3:14-19 says, "I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it so so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God." God still answers prayed He IS a big Godl And it is not /file can answer your prayers, but when He will answer your prayers. Trust Him, and keep believing. He has not changed. He is your Father and your friend and He hears you. Don't give up! In,,a, when agencys a uir00 ; make cut backs, why is F&G making a 82 million land purchase?
