Amen." "1 am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who Called you by the grace of Christ, for a differer~t gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you, and want to distort the gospel of Christ." "But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed." "For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God?Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. For neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but { received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ." Galatians 1:1-12 (NAS) DRUG ABUSE AWARENESS AT A.S.C.

One major problem that is happening in this matter is the fact that most people posting their 911" addresses on their houses or their driveways so these respon- ders can find them. 911 address numbers need to be visible at the end of their driveways since many homes are lanes and private drives.
