Two years ago, I featured Nicholas Evans of Spring Hill, Fla., who reads this column in Hernando Today. His story was so complex and unique, I recently sensed a progress report on his status was in order.
If you remember, Nicholas in 1999 scored a high 1450 on his PSAT, was a dean’s list student, and was about to attend Florida State studying meteorology. He had a bright future.

St. John’s Lutheran in Kimball Nov. 2
Very few of us have not been touched by the tragedy of suicide. Too often, despair and hopelessness lead people to take their lives. But even those who have never contemplated suicide experience feelings of despair and hopelessness. Many suffer from depression.
St. John’s Lutheran Church of Kimball is hosting a workshop on Saturday, Nov. 2, which will address these difficult issues. The Rev. Peter Preus will lead a workshop titled: “Speaking of Hopelessness: When Believers Consider Suicide.” Rev. Preus, pastor of The Lutheran Church of the Triune God in Maple Grove, Minn., is the author of “And She Was a Christian – Why Do Believers Commit Suicide?” Pastor Preus’ first wife, Jean, committed suicide in 1994. The workshop will address such question as: “Why do people commit suicide?” “Are there different kinds of hopelessness?” “What does it mean to despair?” “What may we say to the despairing and those who have thoughts of suicide?” “What if this person is a Christian?” “What shall I do if I have reason to believe that a loved one will attempt to end his or her life?”
