TRUSSVILLE — Phillip and Callie Acton’s story has gained a sense of notoriety in the Trussville community.

Callie was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in February of 2015. After countless lab visits, chemotherapy and radiation treatments, shots and medications, Callie finished her last day of radiation on November 6, 2015, and has gotten clean scans ever since.

However, the Acton family encountered another turn in the road to healthfulness, when Phillip was diagnosed with bladder cancer on January 18. Although there is currently a break in Phillip’s treatments, at this time he is also cancer free.

Just before Father’s Day, the Acton family found out that Callie’s Make-A-Wish trip was being granted. Rather than choosing to go to Disney World like many Make-A-Wish recipients, Callie has chosen to go to Scotland.

“I’ve been to Disney 50 times, and Callie’s been just about every year of her life up until she got sick,” Phillip Acton said. “Her favorite Disney princess is Merida and one of her favorite movies is Brave, because she’s strong and independent and doesn’t have to have a boy.”

Aside from Callie’s love for Merida and Brave, Callie was also inspired by her own love for archery. Callie is a member of the archery team at her school.

The Actons also have ancestors from Scotland, which influenced Callie’s decision.

“She’s interested to see where her family is from,” Phillip said. “We thought it was a pipe dream.”

The Make-A-Wish foundation will pay for four of the six Actons to go on the trip, which leaves airfare and additional expenses to be raised in order for the whole family to go.

“Make-A-Wish is a terrific organization, and we feel so incredibly fortunate to be able to go on this trip,” Phillip said.

The trip will take place in September, and the family has raised over $1,000 for travel expenses in less than a day. If you’d like to donate, click here.

A young voter asked me Sunday, “Who are you voting for in November?” Apparently a famous Christian rapper said he would not vote because there were no

acceptable candidates. That concerned me. Christians should seek to significantly influence (not withdraw) from politics. Let me support that statement through several questions.

“Shall The Atheists Win?”

William Buckley, Jr. published a book in 1951: God and Man at Yale. It opened my eyes to some startling revelations. Buckley was a recent graduate of Yale, where he served as editor of the student paper. The heart of his assertion was this: “[T]he duel between Christianity and atheism is the most important in the world . . . and the struggle between individualism and collectivism is the same struggle on another level.” He documented how that duel is playing out in politics. He named professors who were eradicating any notion of Christ from the classroom. He traced the textbooks used (and specific teachings in them) to atheistic Communist sources. This concerted effort—beginning at institutions of higher learning (which churn out lawyers, politicians, judges, media, etc.)—was designed to banish God from politics and then to replace God and His standards with man and his standards. Such is the duel between Christianity and communism in politics. To withdraw is to concede defeat to the atheists.

“But, Is American Even A Christian Nation Anymore?”

It all depends on what you mean by “Christian nation.” Wayne Grudem (Politics According to the Bible) asks several pertinent questions:

  1. Is Christian teaching the primary religious system that influenced the founding of the U.S.?
  2. Were the majority of the Founding Fathers of the U.S. Christians who generally believed in the truth of the Bible? Yes, generally, they were.
  3. Are a majority of people in the U.S. Bible-believing, evangelical, born-again Christians? A 2005 Gallup poll indicates only about 22% of America is truly born again (Albert L. Winseman, “U.S. Evangelicals: How many Walk the Walk?”).
  4. Is belief in Christian values the dominant perspective promoted by the U.S. government?
  5. Does the U.S. government promote Christianity as the national religion?

So: Is American a Christian nation? Yes and no. Confusing, huh? One thing we all can agree to is this: America progressively has been becoming “less” Christian since its founding. If so, how are Christians to respond? Romans 13 indicates we shouldn’t run from government, but influence it (do good, pay taxes, show honor, show respect).

“Should we ever disobey the government?”

Yes, on rare occasions, we should. Generally speaking, though, we should obey (even imperfect) governments. Even Jesus paid taxes to the government that executed Him (Mark 12:17). The exception is when the government demands we disobey God. In Acts 4:18, the governing authority told the early apostles not to speak or teach in the Name of Jesus. But Peter and John determined: We must obey God rather than man on this point (Acts 4:19). 

So, Who Should I Vote For In November?

I cannot tell you for whom to vote. However, here is a guiding principle (Grudem):   “Christians should seek to significantly influence government in accordance with biblical principles.” That doesn’t mean we have to vote for the “perfect” candidate—or even the “Christian” one. There is nothing wrong with voting for a non-Christian who, in God’s providence, happens to embrace policies that align with Scripture.

I Understand, But Can You Be More Specific?

Sure, here are some questions that might help narrow your choice:

  1. Who will protect our freedom of speech (to declare the gospel)?
  2. Who will protect our freedom of religion (to worship as I choose)?
  3. Who will appoint judges that rule according to the original framers’ intent?
  4. Who will protect the civil rights of unborn citizens?
  5. Who will protect God’s earth from environmental factors damaging it?
  6. Who will protect our country from attack (which might weaken our efforts to declare the gospel)?
  7. Who will protect Israel, for whom God yet has glorious plans (Rom 11)?
  8. Whose economic policies will impact Kingdom-work. By this, I mean: taxes, inflation, interest rates, job growth, etc., all have economic impact on the church. Pragmatically: the better our economy, the more Christians tithe, which provides more resources to reach the world for Christ.

These are some (not all) questions to consider. More important than “who” to vote for is this: Don’t withdraw from the political process. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world . . . let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father Who is in heaven” (Matt 5:14-16). To withdraw is to neglect our Christian responsibility to be salt and light where God has placed us.

TRUSSVILLE — Grocery shopping options just became healthier and more accessible for Trussville residents.

Co-owners and founders Noah Holtkamp and Joanna Zaleski recently launched Nutrient High, a Trussville-based organic produce market that delivers fruits and vegetables right to their customers’ doors.

“Over the years of industrialization, we’ve lost some organic farming practices. They’re coming back now. We chose Trussville because this is the perfect place to promote health and wellness,” Hotlkamp said.

Nutrient HighHotlkamp was first inspired to establish an organic produce delivery service two years ago, when he realized how inaccessible organic produce was in his area.

“I wanted to start a service that brought fresh food to the consumer,” Holtkamp said. “We don’t charge a delivery fee. We like to work with our customers.”

Nutrient High aims to promote local and regional farmers who are certified by the U.S Department of Agriculture. The two farms where they get most of their produce are located in Blunt and St. Clair Counties. They also support farms in Georgia, North Carolina and Florida.

“We have a focus on supporting local agriculture,” Holtkamp said.

According to Holtkamp, eating organic fruits and vegetables has a positive impact on the environment and a person’s health.

“When you eat organic, you promote sustainable agriculture, and you promote clean watersheds,” Hotlkamp said. “There have been several studies that have shown that certain pesticides used in conventional farming have been linked to neurological disorders. There is more and more information that is pointing to the negative effects of not consuming organic produce. Your health is the number one benefit of eating organic.”

In addition to environmental and health benefits, Holtkamp also said that Nutrient High is a great source for those who are seeking to follow religious dietary laws.

Holtkamp also said that the delivery service will benefit those who are immobile or too busy to go out and shop for groceries.

Nutrient High prides themselves on their quality produce and their high level of customer service. They also deliver to the Pinson and Clay areas. According to Holtkamp, Nutrient High is willing to deliver to communities that are a long distance if ten or more people express the need their service.

“It’s all about the quality of the customer service and the product. If you’re product is less than perfect, we always want to make it right. Even though we’re based in Trussville, we want to serve every community we possible can,” Hotlkamp said. “This is a small operation, but we don’t let that convince us that we’re not able to touch as many people as we can. We’re trying to service as many families as we can.”

Nutrient High also serves the community by donating organic food to UAB Medical West in Bessemer, and to people who are underprivileged.

According to Hotlkamp, they currently have 20 acres of land where they plan on growing more produce in the future.

To place an order with Nutrient High, call them at (205) 789-0550 or order online through their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/nutrienthigh.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. –After a long battle with dementia, legendary coach Pat Summitt has died, her family announced on Tuesday morning. Summitt posted more college basketball wins than any coach in the history of the game.  She was 64.

“It is with tremendous sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Patricia Sue Head Summitt.

She died peacefully this morning at Sherrill Hill Senior Living in Knoxville surrounded by those who loved her most.

Since 2011, my mother has battled her toughest opponent, early onset dementia, ‘Alzheimer’s Type,’ and she did so with bravely fierce determination just as she did with every opponent she ever faced. Even though it’s incredibly difficult to come to terms that she is no longer with us, we can all find peace in knowing she no longer carries the heavy burden of this disease.

For 64 years, my mother first built her life upon a strong relationship with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Her foundation was also built upon love of her family and of her players, and love of the fundamentals of hard work which reflected her philosophy that ‘you win in life with people’.

She was the fourth of five children – Tommy, Charles, Kenneth and Linda – born to Richard and Hazel Head on June 14, 1952, in Clarksville, Tenn. Her tireless work ethic and her love of the game of basketball were created during the time she spent growing up on the family farm.

She’ll be remembered as the all-time winningest D-1 basketball coach in NCAA history, but she was more than a coach to so many – she was a hero and a mentor, especially to me, her family, her friends, her Tennessee Lady Volunteer staff and the 161 Lady Vol student-athletes she coached during her 38-year tenure.

We will all miss her immensely.

A private service and burial will be held for my mother in Middle Tennessee. I ask that you respect the privacy of that time.
We are in the process of finalizing the details of a public celebration of her life which will take place in one of her favorite places, Thompson-Boling Arena. Once those details are finalized, we will share them with you.

Thank you.” – Tyler Summitt

PINSON – Pinson City Councilman Joe Cochran has announced his candidacy for mayor of Pinson.

Cochran is running on the platform of sustainable economic growth, education that fosters learning for all students, enhanced city services and public safety, according to a press release.

“Having lived in Pinson for 25 years and serving locally for 12 years, I believe few communities can compare.  It is a wonderful place to live and raise a family,” Cochran said.  “I will take an aggressive approach to bringing new companies and jobs to Pinson, while also focusing on education, quality of life, and continued infrastructure improvements.  All of these areas are intertwined and must continue to be enhanced in order to maintain the strong sense of community that Pinson provides to all who live and work here.”

Cochran said that after spending so long serving as a councilman, now felt like the right time to step up and run for mayor. Cochran said that what sets him apart from other candidates is his aggressive stance on business, and his desire to build relationships between the city and teens and senior citizens in the community.

“What I’ve found is the teenage voice is lacking in the community,” Cochran said. “I want a committee of teen leaders to develop ideas to serve their needs in a better way, and we would do the same thing with seniors, developing a senior advisor committee.”

Cochran is currently serving his fourth term as a Pinson City Councilman, and serves as chair of the public safety/roads and streets committee. He has also served eight years as mayor pro tempore.

Cochran was first elected to city council when Pinson became its own city in 2004. Highlights of his work include establishing the Pinson Public Library, enhancements to the youth ballpark, development of parks and recreation areas, establishing a contract deputy program for enhanced law enforcement in the area and establishing a planning and zoning board.

In addition to this elected position, Cochran is the executive director of the Pinson Education Foundation, and is an active volunteer at Pinson Valley High School.

CALERA – Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputies went to the 400 block of East Milgray around 12:30 a.m., where Shelby County Deputies were already investigating a suspicious death.

Deputies discovered that Christen Nichole Carr, 31 of Calera, was deceased at the residence, and further investigation found that the events leading to her death occurred at another location within unincorporated Shelby County. The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is subsequently responsible for the investigation.

Witness statements, physical evidence and probable cause lead investigators to believe Carr’s husband killed her, according to a press release from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Kenneth Thomas Young, 36 of Calera, has been arrested and charged with murder and leaving the scene of an accident with death. He is currently in the Shelby County Jail, pending a $1 million bond.

“Every death is tragic but one that could have been avoided and at such a young age is especially difficult. I hope her friends and family find peace as they grieve her loss and we will do everything we can to assist the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office with this prosecution,” Sheriff Samaniego said.
