News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper January 16, 2014 - 5 LE&apos;n'ERS TO THE EDITOR Dear editor: We are hearing a lot late- ly from school boards who have stepped up and made a case both locally and statewide for both restor- ing and increasing funding for schools. So many different kinds of groups make money pitches for so many causes that the temptation may be to lump these school boards in with the rest. But that's not where they should be. When mem- bers of the Bath County school board advocate for better funding, they are doing it for the children of this community: for the up-to-date books they need for their classes, for the after-school programs that help struggling read- ers, for new school buses to safely transport them, for buildings that offer the physical settings needed to learn, for course offerings and technology that will enable then to graduate to a career or go on to post- secondary education, and on and on. In other words, their only vested interest is in the children they were elected to serve. LeVs remember that during January, when Kentucky observes School Board Recognition Month. LeVs also remember that when Ms. Shelly Sanders, Mrs. Barbara Razor, Mr. Hurschell Rawlings, Mrs. Connie Grimes, and Mrs. Sandy Crouch champion local schools and students, it comes with a personal cost. Your board members may spend hours read- ing materials and looking over reports to prepare for a single board meeting. These laypeople take time out of their schedules to obtain training to become knowledgeable about the leadership, budgetary pro- Letter to Editor cont. from page 1. like an old, wounded dog lying there. This is not to mention all the shame and guilt that Satan puts on you for spending money that you shouldn't have, or for missing dinners and other family events, with your children and others. You may say or think: My child or someone else I love is on drugs, and he's helped cause it, and he deserves all these things. You may very well be right. I realize now, that I did damage and/or caused harm to the community and the people in it. God has shown me that I have more victims that I will ever meet. I sincerely apol- ogize for this, and ask for your forgiveness. You see, it's not about me. I knew that there are many people out there in the same dark spiritual prison that I was in. Some of them are probably your loved ones. What is true freedom? To me, it can only be found in Christ. It's not some- thing that's determined by if you're detained some- where or not. Paul wrote 2/3's of the New Testament while he was. detained, but there's no doubt that he was FREE! There is a spiritual side to these drug addiction problems. That's why the same person goes through 2 or 3 rehabs and still uses again. We've just been treating the symptom, and not the problem. The drug use is just a symptom of a deep-rooted, under-lying problem that needs to be dealt with. The root of these problems is spiritual. We need to get to the root. If you would like to write me concerning these things or for other reasons, please contact my Mom (Nancy Wills), or my sister (Lawanna Lu Butcher), to get my address. I would be glad to hear from you, and try to help in any way I can. As I sit in my dark jail cell and write this at 5am, my eyes are tearing up. They are tears of compas- sion. The only two purpos- es of writing this are to try to help others and to obey God. Hopefully, one day, I will return to Bath County. I hope that you will allow me to work with some of you to help with these drug addiction problems. May- be together we can reach others, so they and their families will not have to go through these things - for them to be free. To all the people who help and sponsor the church programs, drug classes and rehabs - keep up the good work and may God bless you! To all the ones who have loved ones addicted - please don't shut them out. I know you're inno- cent, and you've prob- ably been hurt and done wrong, but please reach out to them. They are in a dark prison of their own, and they need your love and support. To those of you who are addicted: You know from reading this article that I know and I've been where you're at. I know the way out! Please contact me. God loves you and so do I. You have a choice! To my Mom, sister, children, other family and friends - when you see my picture on the front page, saying that I was ar- rested, don't let Satan put that shame and guilt on you. Rejoice, thank God I'm in that column and not the obituary column. Thank God I'm alive and I'm free. I'm sorry for the hurt and pain I've caused you. I will continue to pray for my county and the people in it - for God to heal the broken-hearted and set the captives free. You may never see me again, or you may see me again soon. Either way is alright, because wherever I'm at, I AM in CHRIST, and I AM FREE. For you see, I wasn't arrested, but I was RESCUED! May God Bless Us All, Terry C. Wills START'THE NEW YEAR WITH A BANG!
