WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PLANS TO BUILD A CRACKER BARREL STORE ON NORTH THIRD STREET JUST SOUTH OF THE TANGER FACTORY OUTLET CENTER?
August 28, 1998
As reported by the Journal-World in March, Cracker Barrel re-evaluated the location and decided not to open a store in North Lawrence. The Tennessee-based family style restaurant chain declined to discuss the situation. But local observers said Cracker Barrel pulled out because of state and local restrictions on the location, size and height of signs for the store. Another reason may have been low customer traffic counts at the Tanger Factory Outlet Center.

PATRIOTISM
August 28, 1998
To the editor: A photo in the Aug. 22 Journal-World showed a group of Pinckney School students reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Please tell our city commissioners this is PATRIOTISM not cheap injurious, dangerous fireworks. I have not bought fireworks for a few years, but the last time I checked, most of them were made in China. That has probably changed by now, the Chinese are probably saving all their explosives for bullets and grenades, etc. I only wish someone had come to the meeting with statistics on fireworks injuries. It would probably not have fazed our city commissioners. They are very well educated but just a little short on common sense.
SCHOLARS OFFER OTHER MEANINGS OF SCRIPTURES
August 28, 1998
Dear Lee: Regarding the question about Isaiah 45: 7, “I make peace and create evil:” Avraham Gileadi, a noted expert on Isaiah’s literary forms and cultural background, provides insights that show why this passage shouldn’t imply that God is the source of evil. The prophet Isaiah portrays Israel in a relationship with God that resembles the covenant relationship between ancient Near Eastern peoples and their kings: If the people keep their covenants, the King is responsible to provide the specific covenant blessings. Gileadi observes that “peace” in this phrase refers to a covenant or a covenant blessing. The Hebrew “peace” (“shalom”) carries additional meanings of completedness and well-being. The corresponding term, “evil” (“ra”), refers to specific covenant curses, explicit punishments to be meted out to covenant breakers. As Isaiah 1: 11-20 expresses it, God wants his people to show love for one another, and not to pretend the observance of religious rites can substitute for their being just and charitable to one another. Obeying the covenant with God brings covenant blessings; disobedience brings covenant curses. Isaiah condemns immoral behaviors which bring their own curses on a civilization: unbridled greed, immorality, neglect of the poor. So in the Hebrew, there’s no connotation of “evil” as an absolute; it has to do with a covenant curse. (See Avraham Gileadi, “Isaiah and the Prophets,” Religious Studies Center; Provo, 1984.)
