Louisville farmers market will be extended into fall months

Dear Editor:

Louisville has been blessed this year with another wonderful Farmers Market on Broad Street. We had honey producers from as far as Metter, peas from Twin City and Waynesboro, as well as your local farmers and producers bringing you the freshest items available. It also became a place for folks to catch up with one another and get some inside knowledge for their own gardens.

Since the Downtown Farmers Market had such a great success this season, why end it now? We are proud to announce the market will continue to operate through the fall season. If you have any local produce, specialty items, or anything of that nature, come on down. There are a few farmers and producers already committed to keeping the market open as long as the public keeps supporting their efforts.

with fresh breads, sauces, flowers, herbs and honey.

Located in front of the old Wrens Hardware Store on Broad Street, the market operates every Wednesday afternoon from 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon. Come on down and help support your local farmers and producers!

Some items to look for in the fall season will include produce such as cabbage, collards, cucumbers, broccoli, beets, lettuce, peas, peppers, tomatoes and watermelons to name a few.

DíAntignac defends his readings of the King James Bible

Dear Editor:

And Mr. Gordy, I have been meaning to respond to some of the past letters and Soapbox comments that have been written, but Iíve been busy with other things. Now, let me start by saying I missed you too, Gordy. You, Clements, and McDermott are just a few that have the balls to say what you feel, even if itís mostly half truths.

In the May 20th edition you stated this: (A TV personality on a religious channel in effect said recently that the nation that blesses Israel will be blessed.) Nowhere in that statement does it say what you said in the Sept. 9th edition: (Some weeks back, we wrote a letter to the editor saying King James Version of the Bible says, ďWhoever blesses Israel, God will bless, and whoever curses Israel, God will curse.Ē)

Trust me when I tell you, I read my Bible every day. This is what the KJV does say: ďAnd I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.Ē

The KJV said thee not Israel. The nation of Israel hadnít even been born yet.

Gordy, if you wear glasses, or contacts, use them now. Because I stand by what I said in the May 27th edition when I said: (Can you believe that this person has the gall to say the Bible said so? When you see this person, ask him where in the Bible that it said what he said it did? Ask him to tell you where, and in what chapters and verses, it said these things?)

I still stand by that statement until you prove me wrong. Do not quote something from the Bible thatís not there. If you choose to go down that road, Iíll have to put you in that class of television preacher, who asks for money at the end of their opinions and half truths of the Scriptures.

The second part of this statement I can say is true: (God was speaking of the Patriarch Abraham, whom God promised would be the father of many nations, but especially Israel.) First part not true. Why? That statement from God was made to Abram. God changed his name to Abraham in Genesis Chapter 17, Verse 5. And finally, God did not say (especially Israel), thatís your opinion, as well as others, but Iíll say to them what Iíll say to you, donít lie on the Bible.

As for the statement: Psalm 122:6, which says, ďPray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee.Ē That is a true and factual statement from the KJV. I have no problem with that statement.

Let me end this letter with a statement and a few questions to you, and all that think like you. God did make Abraham the father of many nations, but like others that preach, you fail or just donít get it, that he had a son, (Ishmael) before Sarah had their son (Isaac), who would be that seed to eventually birth Israel as a nation. My questions are: Whom do you think the Muslims think, is the father of their race? And who was the father of that father?

Sincerely,

Clyde DíAntignac
Future Wadley Resident
