THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M LORIE JOHNSON.

AS PRESIDENT TRUMP

CONTINUES TO FIGHT FOR

HEALTH CARE REFORM, HE MAY

GO AFTER MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS WHERE IT HURTS:

THEIR HEALTH CARE.

AND THE PRESIDENT HAS ALSO

PROCLAIMED A NEW GOLDEN

AGE FOR SMALL BUSINESS.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: MANY HAVE

WONDERED WHAT WOULD HAPPEN

IF AMERICAN BUSINESS WAS

UNLEASHED FROM THE

TREMENDOUS BURDEN OF

GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS?

IT IS SOMETHING PRESIDENT

TRUMP WANTS TO SEE, TOO.

THE PRESIDENT TOLD SMALL

BUSINESS OWNERS AT THE

WHITE HOUSE TUESDAY HE IS

CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT

WHERE SMALL BUSINESS CAN

FLOURISH.

President Trump:

AMERICA IS ON THE VIRGE OF

A GOLDEN AGE FOR SMALL

BUSINESS.

WE'RE ENDING JOB-KILLING

REGULATIONS -- THESE FOLKS

KNOW THAT VERY WELL -- AND

WE'RE ENDING IT AT A

RECORD PACE, AND PURSUING

BOLD TAX CUTS SO OUR

COMPANIES CAN THRIVE,

COMPETE, AND GROW.

Reporter: AND THE

PRESIDENT POINTED OUT AT

THE STOCK MARKET HAS HIT

RECORD HIGHS, AND

UNEMPLOYMENT HAS REACHED

ONE OF ITS LOWEST RATES IN

YEARS.

SENATE REPUBLICANS WILL

BRING A BILL TO THE TABLE

THIS FALL USING A

FAST-TRACK RECONCILIATION

PROCESS, WHICH WOULD ALLOW

A BILL TO GO FORWARD

WITHOUT INTERFERENCE FROM

DEMOCRATS.

AND THE PRESIDENT IS NOT

GIVING UP ON HEALTH CARE.

SAYING HE WANTS A NEW PLAN

IN THE SENATE.

TRUMP TWEETED: "IF A NEW

HEALTH CARE BILL IS NOT

APPROVED QUICKLY, BAILOUTS

FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES

AND BAILOUTS FOR MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS WILL END

PRETTY SOON."

HE SAID OBAMACARE HAS TO

GO ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

President Trump: LET

OBAMACARE EXPLODE.

IT IS EXPLODING RIGHT NOW.

I SAID FROM THE BEGINNING,

LET OBAMACARE IMPLODE AND

THEN DO IT.

Reporter: TOM PRICE

INSISTED TRUMP IS JUST

TRYING TO MOVE THE DEBATE

IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

HE KEEPS COMING BACK TO

THIS AND SAYING, LOOK,

SENATE, DO YOUR JOB.

CONGRESS, DO YOUR JOB.

Reporter: ALONG WITH

HIS PLANS TO CUT TAXES, IT

IS CLEAR THAT THE FIGHT TO

END OBAMACARE IS ONE THE

PRESIDENT SEEMS DETERMINED

TO WIN.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Lorie: CHRISTOPHER

RAY IS NOW THE NEW

DIRECTOR OF THE F.B.I.

HE REPLACES JAMES COMEY,

THE FORMER F.B.I. DIRECTOR

FIRED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP

IN MAY.

DURING HIS CONFIRMATION,

HE TOLD LAWMAKERS THAT HE

WOULD NEVER PLEDGE LOYALTY

TO THE PRESIDENT, AND THAT

HE WOULD NOT BE, QUOTE,

"PULLING PUNCHES" AS THE

NEW DIRECTOR, AND WOULD

RESIGN IF HE WOULD BE

ASKED TO DO SOMETHING

ILLEGAL OR IMMORAL.

> THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS YET TO

SIGN A SANCTIONS BILL THAT

LANDED ON HIS DESK LAST

WEEK.

THE U.S. SENATE APPROVED

FINANCIAL SANCTIONS

AGAINST RUSSIA, IRAN, AND

NORTH KOREA.

PART OF THAT BILL IS AIMED

AT PUNISHING RUSSIA FOR

MEDDLING IN THE 2016

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

IT IS ALSO SUPPOSED TO

KEEP THE PRESIDENT FROM

WAIVING PENALTIES AGAINST

THE COUNTRY.

PRESS SECRETARY SARAH

HUCKABEE SANDERS TOLD SAID

ON TUESDAY THAT THE

PRESIDENT HAS NOT SIGNED

THE BILL, BUT HE WILL.

THERE IS NOTHING

HOLDING HIM BACK.

THERE IS A LEGAL PROCESS

AND HE'LL SIGN THE BILL,

AND WE'LL LET YOU GUYS

KNOW.

Lorie: RUSSIA IS

EXPELLING MORE THAN 700

U.S. DIPLOMATS FROM THE

COUNTRY IN RESPONSE.

> THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

IS PLANNING A NEW

INITIATIVE THAT COULD

CHANGE A PROGRAM DESIGNED

TO BRING MORE MINORITY

STUDENTS TO COLLEGE

CAMPUSES.

ACCORDING TO A DOCUMENT

OBTAINED BY THE "NEW YORK

TIMES," JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

OFFICIALS ARE PREPARING TO

INVESTIGATE AND SUE

UNIVERSITIES OVER

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

POLICIES THAT THEY FEEL

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST WHITE

APPLICANTS.

THE PROJECT WILL BE BASED

OUT OF THE DEPARTMENT'S

CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION AND

NOT THE EDUCATIONAL

DEPARTMENT.

THE SUPREME COURT HAS

ALREADY RULED THAT

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS

CONSTITUTIONAL.

> THE U.S. INSPECTOR

GENERAL HAS LAUNCHED A

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION

INTO WASTEFUL SPENDING OF

MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER

DOLLARS IN AFGHANISTAN.

PART OF THE ALLEGED WASTE

CAME IN THE FORM OF PRICEY

FOREST CAMOUFLAGE UNIFORMS

FOR AFGHAN TROOPS WHO

OPERATE IN MOSTLY A DESERT

ENVIRONMENT.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIC

GONZALES BRINGS US THE

STORY FROM CAPITOL HILL.

Reporter: PEOPLE ARE

NOT BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE

FOR WASTING MONEY.

JOHN SOPKO TOLD A HOUSE

ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE

HE IS OPEN TO CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION AFTER THE

PENTAGON WAS FOUND TO HAVE

SPENT MORE THAN

$93 MILLION ON AFGHAN

UNIFORMS.

HE SAYS THE FOREST

CAMOUFLAGE PATTERN WAS

PICKED DESPITE THE COUNTRY

HAVE VERY LITTLE FOREST,

INSTEAD OF USING THE

DEFENSE DEPARTMENT'S

UNIFORMS FOR FREE.

WE NEVER SHOWED HIM

THIS.

THE BIGGER PROBLEM IS: NO

ONE EVER DID AN ASSESSMENT

AS TO WHAT KIND OF

CAMOUFLAGE IS BEST IN

AFGHANISTAN.

Reporter: HE SAYS IT

IS STILL TOO EARLY TO

DETERMINE IN HIS WORDS IS

STUPIDITY, CORRUPTION, OR

A BROKEN SYSTEM LED TO THE

U.S. PURCHASING ABOUT

1.3 MILLION UNIFORMS IN

THE CAMOUFLAGE PATTERN.

HE DID WARN IF THE PROGRAM

IS NOT ADJUSTED QUICKLY;

IT COULD COST AMERICAN

TAXPAYERS ANOTHER

$72 MILLION.

EVEN JIM MATTIS WEIGHED IN

RECENTLY, CONDEMNING THE

WASTE AS A CAVALIER

SPENDING.

DEFENSE DEPARTMENT

OFFICIALS ALSO TESTIFIED

ON THE HILL THAT THEY TOLD

LAWMAKERS THEY'RE NOW

GOING TO USE THE INSPECTOR

GENERAL'S REPORT AS A

CATALYST TO END THE

AGGRESSIVE SPENDING AND

WASTE.

BUT RIGHT NOW THE ONLY

THING THAT THEY'VE DONE IS

START A STUDY OF THEIR

OWN.

ON DAY TO DAY, NO

CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE DAY

TO DAY?

THE REPORT HAS BEEN OUT

FOR ABOUT A MONTH.

THE PRIMARY SUGGESTION IN

THE REPORT IS THAT WE

DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT

THERE IS A UNIFORM PATTERN

THAT IS MORE SUITABLE.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

BIGGER PROBLEM IS FIXING

THE WAY THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT WORKS AND

SPENDS MONEY.

IT IS BROKEN.

I HATE TO SAY IT, THE

SYSTEM IS BROKEN ON

ACCOUNTABILITY.

BECAUSE WE'RE NOT HOLDING

PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE.

BECAUSE BY THE TIME WE GET

OUT THERE, THE MONEY HAS

BEEN SPENT.

AND THE PERSON WHO IS

INVOLVED IS EITHER RETIRED

OR LONG GONE BECAUSE THERE

IS A TWO-YEAR OR SHORTER

APPROPRIATION CYCLE, AND

EVERYBODY HAS THE

INCENTIVE TO SPEND MONEY.

Reporter: HE SAYS

MILITARY CONTRACTORS TOLD

THEM THEY GET REWARDED AT

THE END OF THE YEAR ON HOW

MUCH MONEY THEY SPEND, AND

HE SCOLDED LAWMAKERS FOR

ALLOWING THAT SYSTEM.

WE HAVE TO CHANGE THAT

SYSTEM.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE H.R.

SYSTEM IN THE DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT, TAKE A LOOK AT

THE INCENTIVES THAT YOU

ARE ALLOWING TO OCCUR

WHICH CREATE THIS PROBLEM.

Reporter: SOPKO SAYS

HE IS ALSO RECOMMENDING A

REVIEW OF ALL ORGANIZATION

ORGANIZATIONAL EQUIPMENT

AND CLOTHING IN

AFGHANISTAN.

WE'LL KEEP YOU POSTED.

Lorie: THE KNOXVILLE

POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL BE

REMOVING A CHRISTIAN

PLAQUE TODAY.

IT IS "WHAT SHALL WE SAY

IN RESPONSE TO THESE

THINGS, FOR IF GOD IS FOR

US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST

US."

THE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS

BEING THREATENED WITH A

LAWSUIT UNLESS IT TAKES

THE PLAQUE DOWN, SAYING

THAT IT VIOLATES THE

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE.

A POLICE DEPARTMENT

SPOKESMAN SAYS THAT THE

DEPARTMENT SIMPLY DOESN'T

HAVE ENOUGH MONEY,

TAXPAYER MONEY AT THAT, TO

FIGHT A LEGAL BATTLE.

> A WISCONSIN COMPANY

HOSTED A CHIP PARTY TO

IMPLANT MICROCHIPS IN ITS

WORKERS' HANDS ON TUESDAY.

IT ALLOWS EMPLOYEES TO

OPEN DOORS, LOG ON TO

COMPUTERS, OR EVEN BUY

SNACKS IN THE BREAK ROOM

WITH A SIMPLE WAVE OF THE

HAND.

THE COMPANY SAYS IT DOES

NOT INCLUDE G.P.S. AND

CANNOT BE USED TO GET

PRIVATE INFORMATION.

41 OUT OF THE COMPANY'S 85

EMPLOYEES DECIDED TO GET

THE CHIP.

THE COMPANY IS THE FIRST

IN THE U.S. TO TEST THIS

KIND OF TECHNOLOGY ON ITS

WORKERS.

> COMING UP, INSIDE A

PICTURESQUE TOWN THAT IS

IN DANGER OF BEING WASHED

AWAY.

HEAR FROM THE RESIDENTS OF

TANGIER ISLAND WHO ARE

BELIEVING GOD TO SAVE

THEIR SMALL COMMUNITY.

Lorie: FOR A TINY

VIRGINIA ISLAND, HURRICANE

SEASON MEANS POTENTIAL

DISASTER.

EXPERTS SAY JUST ONE

STRONG STORM COULD DESTROY

HISTORIC TANGIER ISLAND.

BUT AS HEATHER SELLS

REPORTS, PEOPLE WHO LIVE

THERE BELIEVE GOD WILL

SAVE THEIR LAND.

Reporter: AS A NEW

DAY DAWNS OVER TANGIER

ISLAND, IT'S BEAUTY AND

CHARM ARE UNDENIABLE.

A QUAINT SIL VILLAGE OF JUST

450 PEOPLE, WHERE EVERYONE

KNOWS EVERYONE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,

SWEETHEART!

THANK YOU.

Reporter: THE TWO

MAIN INDUSTRIES INVOLVE

FISHING OR TOURISM.

THE MAJORITY TENDS ON ATTENDS ONE

OF TWO CHURCHES.

IT IS SMACK IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE CHESAPEAKE BAY

WHERE DANGEROUS EROSION

AND RISING WATER PUT ITS

VERY FUTURE IN JEOPARDY.

SCIENTISTS SAY TAN YEAR IS TANGIER IS

LOSING ABOUT NINE ACRES IS

YEAR.

IT IS NO SURPRISE TO THE

PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE WHO

ARE LITERALLY WATCHING

THEIR ISLAND WASH AWAY.

THE MAYOR IS LEADING THE

FIGHT TO SAVE TANGIER.

HE SHOWED US THE MANY

PLACES WHERE THE WATER HAS

OVERTAKEN THE LAND.

YOU SEE THIS ISLAND

OVER HERE TO OUR LEFT WITH

THE CROSS ON IT, OKAY,

THAT WAS ALL CONNECTED AND

THAT WAS ALL PENINSULA AND

RAN HERE TO THE NUMBER SIX

MARKER, LIKE ON THE OTHER

SIDE.

THIS WAS ALL LAND ACROSS

HERE.

AND YOU CAN SEE HOW IT IS

JUST CHEWING IT UP AND IT

IS DISAPPEARING.

Reporter: JARED PARKS

WALKED US ALONG SEVERAL

AREAS WHERE HE HAS PRAYED,

ASKING GOD TO SAVE THE

ISLAND.

THIS WAS WOODED AND

THERE WERE TREES HERE.

Reporter: MARINE

BIOLOGIST DAVID SCHULTE

HAS PUBLISHED THE REPORT.

HE SAYS IN 20 TO 50 YEARS,

IT COULD BECOME UNLIVABLE.

THE WATERS HAVE GOTTEN

HIGH ENOUGH TO THE POINT

WHERE BASICALLY BIG YARDS

ARE NOW MARSH.

THEY'RE GETTING A LOT OF

FLOODING IN THEIR HOMES.

Reporter: WHAT REALLY

FRUSTRATES SCHULTE ARE

SCENES LIKE THIS: A

CEMETERY ON AN AREA KNOWN

AS THE UPARDS THAT HAVE

LITERALLY WASHED AWAY.

I DON'T LIKE THAT.

I'M KIND OF OFFENDED BY

IT.

WE AS A PEOPLE CAN'T LET

THAT HAPPEN TO EACH OTHER.

Reporter: BUT AS HE

POINTS OUT, WE ARE BECAUSE

CONGRESS HAS NOT MADE

TANGIER A PRIORITY.

200 2002 WAS MY FIRST

VISIT.

AND I HAVE SEEN NOTHING

GET ACTUALLY BUILT OUT

THERE.

Reporter: HE HAS A

$30 MILLION PLAN THAT

WOULD POSITION SEA WALLS

AROUND THE ENTIRE ISLAND.

HE HAS THE FULL SUPPORT OF

THE ISLANDERS WHO POINT TO

THE SUCCESS OF THE ONE

SMALL JETTY THAT CURRENTLY

PROTECTS TANGIER.

WE WERE LOSING 20 TO

30 FEET OF SHORE LINE

RIGHT HERE, AND THEY

COMPLETED THAT IN 1989,

AND SINCE THEN WE HAVE NOT

LOST ONE INCH OF SHORE

LINE, SO IT WORKS.

Reporter:

COUNCILWOMAN ANNA PRUETT

PARKS SAYS IT HAS BEEN IN

THE WORKS FOR MORE THAN 20

YEARS.

STUFF KEEPS GETTING

DELAYED AND DELAYED.

IT IS JUST A LONG PROCESS.

Reporter: WITH TIME

RUNNING OUT, THE ISLAND IS

TURNING TO GOD LIKE NEVER

BEFORE.

PRUETT PARKS' GRANDMOTHER

RECEIVED A PROPHETIC WORD

ABOUT TANGIER'S FIRST

JETTY, AND HE BELIEVES GOD

TOLD HIM THE CHESAPEAKE

BAY WILL NOT CLAIM

TANGIER.

HIS WORD TO ME, IN

FACT, WAS HE WOULD CAUSE

LAND TO COME BACK.

A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOK AT ME

AND SAY, HOW IS LAND GOING

TO COME BACK?

GET REAL.

I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE, I

DIDN'T SAY IT; GOD SAID

IT.

Reporter: THE PASTOR

SAID HE BELIEVES GOD IS

TRYING TO TEACH PEOPLE

HERE TO TRUST IN HIM.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME

ON OUR TERMS THAT WE

HAVEN'T SEEN ANY ACTION,

BUT IN GOD'S TERM IT IS

SIMPLY A BLINK OF THE EYE.

Reporter: AND

ISLANDERS ARE ALSO

ENCOURAGED BY THIS NEW

DEVELOPMENT: A PHONE CALL

FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP TO

THE MAYOR.

IT CAME AFTER AN INTERVIEW

IN WHICH ESKRIDGE SAID HE

LOVES THE PRESIDENT LIKE A

FAMILY MEMBER.

AND NOW HE IS PLANNING A

TRIP TO THE WHITE HOUSE

WHICH SCHULTE SAYS COULD

MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

I WOULD THINK IF HE

WOULD PERSONALLY ADVOCATE

ON SOMETHING, CONGRESS

WOULD TAKE IT UP INPU, THEY

WOULD PUT IT IN THE

BUDGET.

Reporter: FOR NOW,

TANGIER IS WAITING,

PRAYING, AND BELIEVING.

I STILL HAVE PEOPLE

THAT WILL CALL ME AND SAY,

I WAS THINKING ABOUT WHEN

YOU SPOKE IN CHURCH THAT

TIME, AND I STILL BELIEVE

WHAT YOU SAID, THAT THE

LORD IS GOING TO DO

SOMETHING FOR THE ISLAND

AND EVERYTHING.

AND, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES

GOD USES THE WAITING TO

TEACH US.

Reporter: REPORTING

> UP NEXT, IT IS THE HOT

NEW RETIREMENT TOWN.

AND IT'S SPORTING A LOW

COST OF LIVING AND

AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

HEAR MORE REASONS WHY A

RECORD NUMBER OF RETIREES

NOW CALL THIS PLACE HOME.

Lorie: IF YOU THINK

OF RETIRING IN THE SOUTH,

YOU PROBABLY THINK OF

MOVING TO SOME PLACE IN

FLORIDA, NOT OXFORD,

MISSISSIPPI.

BUT MANY PEOPLE HAVE

DISCOVERED THIS HIDDEN

JEWEL.

IT HAS ACTUALLY BEEN NAMED

ONE OF THE BEST 100 SMALL

TOWNS IN AMERICA.

AS CHARLENE AARON REPORTS,

IT IS ATTRACTING A RECORD

NUMBER OF RETIREES.

Charlene: OXFORD,

MISSISSIPPI, OFFERS A

GLIMPSE OF SOUTHERN CHARM

AT ITS BEST.

IT HAS QUAINT BOUTIQUES,

RESTAURANTS, AND ART

GALLERIES THAT LINE THE

SQUARE.

HOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF

MISSISSIPPI, IT OFFERS

BOTH SMALL-TOWN FEEL AND

SOPHISTICATION.

IT BOASTS A RICH LITERARY

HISTORY.

WE ARE SO FORTUNATE

THAT FOR A SMALL COMMUNITY

OF 21,000, THAT WE HAVE

THE NUMBER ONE BOOKSTORE

IN AMERICA.

WE HAVE AUTHORS LIKE JOHN

GRISHAM COME AND DO BOOK

SIGNS, AND CAROLINE

KENNEDY.

IT IS EVERYTHING YOU WANT

IN A LARGE CITY, BUT

YOU'RE LIVING IN A SMALL

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: OXFORD,

MISSISSIPPI, IS ALSO A

POPULAR CITY FOR

RETIREMENT.

WITHIN THE LAST FIVE

YEARS, NEARLY 40 400 RETIREES

HAVE MADE THIS THEIR HOME.

OXFORD HAS A RICH

HISTORY.

IT IS VIBRANT, IT IS SAFE,

IT OFFERS EXTRAORDINARY

CULTURE AND OPPORTUNITIES.

Reporter: AND IT

BOASTS ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S LOWEST TAX

BURDENS, AND RETIREES

DON'T PAY ANY STATE INCOME

TAX ON MONEY FROM THEIR

401Ks AND I.R.A. s.

AND THEY ENJOY A LOW COST

OF LIVING AND AFFORDABLE

HOUSING.

SOMEONE IN THE MIDWEST

MAY BE PAYING $5,000 ON

PROPERTY TAXES OR PAYING

$1100.

Reporter: ROSY

RELOCATED HERE WITH HER

HUSBAND AND NOW WORKS TO

ATTRACT OTHER RETIREES.

INDIVIDUALS 65 YEARS OF

AGE AND OLDER CAN TAKE

FOUR CREDIT SEMESTER HOURS

FREE AT NO CHARGE.

THAT IS FLA FABULOUS.

Reporter: EDDIE AND

CAROL MOVED HERE FROM

NORTH CAROLINA.

HE WAS DRAWN BY THE TOWN'S

ATHLETIC ATMOSPHERE.

I GREW UP AS A SPORTS

FAN.

Reporter: IOWA

NATIVES JOE AND BRENDA

CHECKED OUT A NUMBER OF

OTHER CITIES BEFORE

DECIDING ON OXFORD.

WE LOOKED AT SANTA FE,

NEW MEXICO, SAN ANTONIO,

TEXAS --

LOS CRUZAS, AND A GOOD

DEAL OF FLORIDA AS WELL.

TOO MANY PLACES TO

REMEMBER THEM ALL.

Reporter: AND THEY

WANTED TO ESCAPE THE COLD

MIDWEST WINTERS.

THE FIRST THING I WAS

LOOKING FOR WAS CLIMATE

CHANGE.

I LOVE THE WEATHER DOWN

HERE.

Reporter: AND THEY

ALSO ENJOY RICH CULTURAL

EXPERIENCES, SUCH AS

BROADWAY-QUALITY SHOWS,

RESTAURANTS AND MORE.

A NEWCOMERS CLUB HELPS

PEOPLE CONNECT.

WE HAVE SEVERAL GROUPS.

THERE IS AN ART CRAWL,

WITH MANY, MANY LOCAL

ARTISTS.

EVERY SATURDAY THERE IS

ORT OART ON THE SQUARE.

IT IS JUST A VERY RICH

CULTURAL -- WELL, AND OF

COURSE, THE FORD CENTERS.

Reporter: FOR

RETIREES THAT WANT TO

TRAVEL, THERE IS ONE

DRAWBACK, THE NEAREST

AIRPORT IS NEARLY 70 MILES

AWAY.

BUT HE SAYS THE TOWN'S

TREMENDOUS APPEAL

OUTWEIGHS THAT MINOR

INCONVENIENCE.

YOU CAN GET SO MUCH

MORE HOME HERE THAN WHAT

THEY CAN GET THERE, AND

YOU'RE ABLE TO SAVE YOUR

MONEY FROM NOT HAVING TO

PAY SO MANY TAXES TO DO

THINGS WITH YOUR FAMILY

WITH YOUR MONEY HERE.

IT IS JUST A BEAUTIFUL

COMMUNITY, AND IT'S SAFE.

THERE IS JUST SOMETHING

HERE FOR EVERYONE.

Reporter: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS, OXFORD,

MISSISSIPPI.

Lorie: WELL, THE CAT

IS OUT OF THE BAG.

OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI, AND

IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THERE

ARE ANY DOWN SIDES.

AND THE FANS ARE VERY

ENTHUSIASTIC, ESPECIALLY

ABOUT FOOTBALL.

SO AN INTERESTING STORY.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

WE'LL TALK ABOUT A RAPPER

HOW TO WORSHIP JESUS.

STAY WITH US.

Lorie: CHANCE THE

RAPPER IS TEACHING KIDS
