THE Lrrr00 ENc00 Photo by Marguerite Alexander Ryan Brooks, of the Sheridan Fire District, accepts a fire engine flower arrangement from Ben Resendez. As Resendez mowed the grass and cleaned the grave sites at Green Crest Memorial Park, the little fire engine caught his attention. The flower arrangement had been placed there in honor of long-time Sheridan Fire District volunteer Gary Harrison. Resendez couldn't bring himself to toss it in the trash along withthe other withering flowers he gathered. It should be returned to the fire district or the Harrison family, he decided. Resendez contacted Val Adamson and arrangements were made to turn the fire engine over to the fire district. In the Bible Births Someone loves me By Pastor Don Sheiton Special to The Su This past week when pre- paring to return to the church office I was told there was a surprise waiting for me and was assured that it was a good one. As I unlocked the door to the office I found two cupcakes sit- ting on a piece of paper with a note written on it. The message simply read: "For Pastor Don, we made onstration, but that is not the event Jesus identifies. We fmd the full extent of his love dem- onstrated in the event recorded in John chapter 13:1-17. What was that event you ask? It is one we would prob- ably not think of, the washing of the disciples' feet. In that simple and humble act Jesus re- vealed the nature of his love in the most profound manner pos- sible. In this story we fred three truths about Jesus' love for us some c_e foLyou, Fr,. all. , Beaus]|oveyou. His not deter- I don't have to tell you that this simple gesture of love made my day. It reminded me that when it comes to love ac- tions speak louder than words. When it comes to Jesus' love, most of us would look to the cross as the ultimate dem- mined by my worthiness. Re- member one of these men would betray him in a matter of hours but Jesus washed his feet along with everyone else. Jesus' love is not given only to those who are good enough but to all men no matter who they are or what they have done in life. His love is not deter- mined by my willingness to receive it. In the upper room there was one who resisted His efforts just as there are many today who push Jesus away and reject his efforts on their behalf. Jesus' love remains available to all who wilt, and whenever they will, accept it. His love is not a feel- ing but a choice. I can't imagine anyone at anytime, even Jesus, feeling like washing feet but it was a task needing to be done that no one else was willing to do. But Jesus did it.

Wednesday, November 2, 2011, The Sun 5 Robbery: SHS, Japanese School locked down for about an hour Continued from PAGE 1 Summers, Yamhill County Sheriff's Office spokesman. He then escaped out a rear door, ran across the alley and jumped a fence. At Morgan Street, a half block behind the bank, a canine unit that had been following a strong scent lost the burglar's trail, leading investigators to be- lieve he may have entered a vehicle. School Resource Office Deputy Derek Trombla con- tacted the schools and the two located near the bank-- Sheridan High School and the Sheridan Japanese School--went into lock down. Students at FCS were taken inside and recess was cancelled. At the high school all outer doors were secured, classroom doors were locked and the shades were drown. Students located near windows were moved away from the line of sight and no one was allowed to leave the classrooms until someone unlocked the door from the outside. A student count was taken to make sure that everyone was accounted for. It's the first time Sheridan High School has had to go into lock down since the school district implemented the procedures years ago, ex- plained Superintendent A. J. Grauer. The stafffollowed the procedures and the students did as they were told. "They were very cooperative," she said. To discourage parents from coming into a potentially un- safe situation, the school does not let people come and get stu- dents during a lock down. "Par- ents were very understanding," Grauer said. The lock down lasted from 10:15 a.m. until shortly after 11 a.m. Had it continued longer, the school would have come up with a way to feed all of the kids on campus. "We were starting to have those conversations," Grauer said. The Sheridan Japanese School also went into lockdown with the doors locked and blinds drawn. Stu- dents were instructed to get down out ofthe line of the win- dows and be quiet. "They were remarkably quiet for an hour," said Diane Gluskoter, the office manager. Customers arriving at the local First Federal on Friday morning were greeted by caution tape and closed signs. The drive through win- dow did open after the initial investigation but the lobby remained closed for the rest of the day. The bank will not release any information on how much, if any, money the bank robber took. "All staff is safe which is of course our first priority," Bittle. "We appreciate the well wishes from the commu- nity." Law enforcement officers are continuing to interview witnesses and follow up on information regarding ve- hicles of interest, explained YCSO Sgt. Tim Svenson. As of Monday there were no suspects. Anyone with information on the suspect or vehicles seen in the area at the time of the in- cident should contact YCSO Detective Kevin Gardner at 503-434-7506 or call the FBI at 503-224-4181. "The FBI investigates all bank robberies," Swenson ex- plained. Tips can also be left electronically at https:// FOR UPDATES: Keep up to date on this story.
