Barlow City Mayor John Wood, Chairman of the Fort Jefferson Memorial Cross committee, began the service with a welcome greeting. This was followed by the recognition of Special Guests by Wickliffe City Council member Judy Hall. DeWayne Chadwick, Pastor of Barlow First Baptist Church, then opened the service with prayer. Barlow City Council member Peggy Meriedeth, and John Earl Evans, both members of Barlow First Baptist Church, led the congregation in song. Jamie Lee, pastor of Grace United Methodist Church, gave the message that focused, not on the actual resurrection of Jesus Christ, but Kevil youths claim tom turkeys during Illinois Turkey Season on what happened afterward. Lee’s message focused on Luke 24:13-35, which is centered on what happened on the Road to Emmaus after Jesus had been resurrected. Lee likened the event to an episode of Sponge Bob Square Pants where the two main characters used their imagination. Lee’s analogy between the Sponge Bob episode and the events that took place on the Road to Emmaus was meant to show that people get stuck in the reality of the here and now. The story illustrates how two followers on the road to Emmaus were stuck in the reality of what had just happened in Jerusalem; Jesus had been crucified. Pastor Lee pointed out that the two followers were so stuck in what had happened that they were unable to imagine the possibilities that came with what had happened. Lee said the reality was that Christ was dead, but what the followers failed to realize was the “what if?” Lee said people now do the same thing the followers did.

Jamie Lee, Pastor of Grace United Method Church in La Center delivers the message at the Easter Sunrise Service at Fort Jefferson Cross. Photos by Kelly Paul live in the reality they can see. He said, “We forget how to imagine things. We are restricted to what we can see, hear, and feel.” The theme of Lee’s message was that Christians need to replace the reality of the here and now with an imagined one in christ. They have forgotten the possibility of life with Christ. He said people have stopped asking themselves, “Does it have to be like this?” Lee emphasized a need for Christians to resurrect their imaginations and imagine Christ’s reality right now. He said, “We need to live out our resurrection reality.” The service ended with a prayer by DeWayne Chadwick and more singing led by John Earl Evans and Peggy Meriedeth. Following the service, an invitation was extended for everyone in attendance to come to a continental breakfast hosted by Wickliffe First Christian Church. The breakfast has been a tradition since 1998. Hunting Eggs at Easter time by Kelly Paul Editor, Advance Yeoman Friday night was when it all began- the quest for as much Easter Candy as any die-hard egg hunter could possibly imagine. At approximately 7:30 p.m., the annual “egghunting games” began with several kids of all ages running through La Center Park at the Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt. Although it wasn’t necessarily dark yet, that didn’t stop the avid egg hunters as they ran through the park with flash lights in one hand and baskets in the other. Within minutes, it was all over. The happy hunters searched their baskets for the “golden egg”, which meant a bigger prize was to be had. A few lucky egg hunters went home with prizes such as a Sponge Bob chair and a bicycle, all of which were provided by Life Care of La Center. Saturday morning brought out more kids with baskets and bags, ready to hunt for as many Easter Eggs as they could find at the Bar- Easter Egg hunters, Saturday morning at the Barlow House in Barlow Photo by Kelly Paul low House; and there was definitely no shortage of eggs as Della Johnson and her helpers boiled and colored 125 dozen of them.

When it comes to hunting eggs at the Barlow House, only an “old fashion” egg hunt will do. This being the 22nd year that the Barlow House hosted an Easter Egg hunt, master egg-hiders (aka Boy Scouts) made sure that the quest for Read The News Online: Lawn Service & Landscape Pros See Hunting Eggs on page A4 Introducing our new inch reducing machine!

While the Blue eggs were quickly found in two of the age group areas, the one in the 9-12 year old section proved to be elusive. After much rummaging through bushes and shrubs, the egg was finally found with the aid of some helpful hints. After the hunt was over, the children sorted through their baskets looking for eggs with numbers on them. The more numbered eggs to be found, the more prizes to be claimed. The grand prize winners of the day were Aiden Summers, Nikki Logsdon, and Jenna Oldham. Each of the lucky winners went home with a $25 gift card for Toys R Us. Saturday afternoon brought another round of egg hunting; only, this time, there were no eggs. As has been then protocol for the past several years at the Wickliffe Easter Egg hunt, the whole plastic egg thing is bypassed 270-575-1000 • Shane Hoying, DC Shawn Livingston 50 CENTS • THE ADVANCE YEOMAN • PUBLISHED WEEKLY •  50 CENTS Located just a ho p skip & ju , m from Ba p llard County!
