Photo by Lucy LaceyAs the nation marks Veterans Day 2012, the U.S. Small Business Administration continues to build on its successful programs for Americas military veterans, helping tens of thousands of veterans each year with small business “ nancing, comprehensive business training and counseling and access to federal contracts. Around Veterans Day, our thoughts turn to the men and women who are currently serving in the Armed Forces, as well as to all veterans who have made sacri“ ces and served our country over the years,Ž said SBA Administrator Karen Mills. When you consider the leadership and management skills our veterans develop while on active and reserve duty, its no wonder we see so many of them choose the path of small business ownership.Ž According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau veterans are successful small business owners. Nearly one in 10 small businesses nationwide is veteranowned. Collectively, these 2.4 million small businesses employ almost 6 million Americans and generate more than $1 trillion in receipts. In the private sector workforce, veterans are 45 percent more likely than those with no active-duty military experience to be self-employed. SBA supports veteran business owners through entrepreneurial training and mentoring, access to capital, and business development opportunities through government contracts.Entrepreneurial Development is year SBA partnered with the Department of Veterans A airs and the Department of Defense to develop a national entrepreneurship training program for transitioning service members as part of the new Transition Assistance Program. Operation Boots to Business: From Service to Startup was piloted with all four branches of the services in summer and fall 2012. e Boots to Business program will be rolled out during 2013 providing exposure to entrepreneurship training to all 250,000 service members who transition from active duty to civilian life each year. In a closely related e ort, SBA and Syracuse University continue to expand the success of the Entrepreneurship Boot Camp for Veterans with Disabilities program. e growing partnership between SBA and Syracuse University, now in its fourth year, provides training on how disabled vets can start and grow a small business, with programs targeted to service-disabled veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and their family caregivers, women veterans, and National Guard and Reserve members and their families.

The Levy County Journal 3ANovember 15, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 e manatee, Floridas o cial state marine mammal, is an iconic American species, popular around the world. Governor Rick Scotts declaration of November as Manatee Awareness Month in Florida helps heighten public awareness about the importance of protecting Floridas endangered, beloved manatees. e proclamation is a time-honored tradition undertaken by Floridas governors to o cially designate the month of November as Manatee Awareness Month. Save the Manatee Club thanks Governor Scott for recognizing the importance of manatees by signing the proclamation,Ž said Patrick Rose, Executive Director of Save the Manatee Club. Since our mission is to protect manatees and their habitat for future generations, we encourage everyone, especially those who enjoy being out on our Florida waters, to keep a close lookout for these amazing marine mammals, not just in November but throughout the year.Ž November is also the time of year when manatees are on the move, making their way to important winter warm-water sites in Florida. Since they are a subtropical species, manatees cannot tolerate prolonged exposure to water temperatures below 68 degrees Fahrenheit. e Club reminds boaters that many seasonal manatee zones in Florida are in e ect by early November, and to pay close attention to posted signage indicating slow or idle speeds, as manatees are often injured or killed by boat strikes and other human activities. Also, the boating community is urged to please keep their distance from migrating manatees or manatees congregated at warm-water sites during the winter months to avoid disturbing or harassing the manatees. Manatees are listed as endangered at the international, federal, and state levels. e Club o ers a variety of ways for the public in Florida to be directly involved with manatee protection. Free public awareness waterway signage, boating banners and decals, waterway cards, and educational posters are produced by the Club. e bright yellow waterproof banner which boldly cautions, Please Slow: Manatees Below,Ž can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be present. Shoreline property signs and matching boat decals are also available, featuring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissionshotline number (1-888-404-3922) for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available to dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and libraries. Family-friendly 2-foot by 3-foot outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal, and county parks; marinas; and other sites where human/manatee interactions can be a problem. Requests for any of these free materials can be sent via e-mail to education@ savethemanatee.org or by calling toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646).Celebrating a Florida Treasure – It’s Manatee Awareness Month As we celebrate manatees during Manatee Awareness Month, together lets continue to build better, safer lives for them,Ž says Rose.

Rose/Save the Manatee Club Six Baker County residents involved in a poaching enterprise were recently cited for more than 30 wildlife law violations by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) o cers. Trenton Lee Forester Stokes, 19, Joseph Bruce Johnson, 41, Dustin Rhoden, 26, Brian Harris, 21, and a 17-year-old juvenile, all from Baxter, and David Henry Jones, 52, of Callahan, were charged with a multitude of violations for the illegal take of deer and alligators as well as several hunting license violations. FWC o cers in Baker County had received several complaints of illegal hunting activity in a remote part of the county. After following leads and gathering information, we were able to ascertain where the illegal hunting was happening and who was involved,Ž said FWC K-9 O cer Bret Gill, who put together the case. On Nov. 2, FWC Capt. Martin Redmond, Lt. David Lee, Lt. Steve Farmer, o cers Todd Hoyle, Joseph Johnston and Gill, along with the Baker County Sheri s O ce, headed out to execute the search warrant they had obtained for a particular residence. On the way to serve the warrant, O cer Hoyle saw four of our subjects being dropped o on a dirt road. e four men walked into John M. Bethea State Forest, which is part of the Osceola Wildlife Management Area,Ž Gill said. However, the area wasnt open for hunting on Nov. 2.Ž e woman driving the truck drove away. Hoyle stopped the vehicle once it was out of sight of the four men and escorted it to the residence, where the other o cers were executing the warrant. e Department of Corrections K-9 team was contacted to help locate the four men, but before they could arrive, Hoyle heard someone say, Come get usŽ from a radio under the trucks seat. Hoyle then had the driver take him back to pick up the subjects. When the men saw the truck, they came running out of the woods, dragging two bucks,Ž said Gill.  ey were very surprised to see O cer Hoyle step out of the truck.Ž In total, six people have been charged with approximately 30 di erent wildlife law violations; nine illegally taken deer were seized, including a large buck in velvet that was con“ ned to a small island during the Tropical Storm Debbie ” ood; and four guns were seized. e violations for each person were: € Trenton Stokes: two counts of taking deer out of season, one count of taking deer at night, one count of illegal method, two counts possession of illegally taken deer. € Joseph Bruce Johnson: one count of taking deer out of season, two of hunting license violations. € David Henry Jones: two counts deer out of season, two counts illegal method, two hunting license violations. € Dustin Rhoden: two counts illegal possession € Brian Harris: one count illegal possession of alligator, one count possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis. € 17-year-old juvenile: “ ve counts taking/attempting to take deer out of season, three counts taking/attempting to take deer by illegal method, two counts illegal possession, one count baiting in WMA, two hunting license infractions, three warnings for illegal WMA access.

The Levy County Journal4ANovember 15, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Nice Losers Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateMitt Romney now joins the long list of the kinds of presidential candidates favored by the Republican establishment-nice, moderate losers, people with no coherently articulated vision, despite how many ad hoc talking points they may have. e list of Republican presidential candidates like this goes back at least as far as 1948, when omas E. Dewey ran against President Harry Truman. Dewey spoke in lofty generalities while Truman spoke in hard-hitting speci“ cs. Since then, there have been many re-runs of this same scenario, featuring losing Republican presidential candidates John McCain, Bob Dole, Gerald Ford and, when he ran for reelection, George H.W. Bush. Bush 41 “ rst succeeded when he ran for election as if he were another Ronald Reagan (Read my lips, no new taxesŽ), but then lost when he ran for reelection as himself-kinder and gentler,Ž disdainful of the vision thingŽ and looking at his watch during a debate, when he should have been counter-attacking against the foolish things being said. is year, Barack Obama had the hard-hitting speci“ cs-such as ending tax cuts for the richŽ who should pay their fair share,Ž government investingŽ in the industries of the futureŽ and the like. He had a coherent vision, however warped. Most of Obamas arguments were rotten, if you bothered to put them under scrutiny. But someone once said that it is amazing how long the rotten can hold together, if you dont handle it roughly. Any number of conservative commentators, both in the print media and on talk radio, examined and exposed the fraudulence of Obamas tax cuts for the richŽ argument. But did you ever hear Mitt Romney bother to explain the speci“ cs which exposed the ” aws in Obamas argument? On election night, the rotten held together because Mitt Romney had not handled it roughly with speci“ cs. Romney was too nice to handle Obamas absurdities roughly. He de“ nitely out-niced Obama-as John McCain had out-niced Obama in 2008, and as Dewey out-niced Truman back in 1948. And these Republicans all lost. In this years “ rst presidential debate, Obama out-niced Romney. But, when he lost out doing that, he then reversed himself, became the attacker, and ultimately the winner on election night, despite a track record that should have buried him in a landslide. When you look at this as a horse race, there is no question that the Republicans deserved to lose. But the stakes for this great nation, at this crucial juncture in its history and in the history of the world, are far too momentous to look at this election as just a contest between two candidates or two political parties. Quite aside from the immediate e ects of particular policies, Barack Obama has repeatedly circumvented the laws, including the Constitution of the United States, in ways and on a scale that pushes this nation in the direction of arbitrary one-man rule. Now that Obama will be in a position to appoint Supreme Court justices who can rubber stamp his evasions of the law and usurpations of power, this country may be unrecognizable in a few years as the America that once led the world in freedom, as well as in many other things. Barack Obamas boast, on the eve of the election of 2008-We are “ ve days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of AmericaŽ-can now be carried out, without fear of ever having to face the voters again. is transformingŽ project extends far beyond fundamental internal institutions, or even the polarization and corruption of the people themselves, with goodies handed out in exchange for their surrendering their birthright of freedom. Obama will now also have more ” exibility,Ž as he told Russian President Medvedev, to transform the international order, where he has long shown that he thinks America has too much power and in” uence. A nuclear Iran can change that. Forever. Have you noticed how many of our enemies in other countries have been rooting for Obama? You or your children may yet have reason to recall that as a bitter memory of a warning sign ignored on election day in 2012. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COM OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicatePresident Obama promises to move the country forward with his recycled pledge of “ ve million green jobs. But in the real world, small businesses are struggling to stay a” oat as they deal with the “ scal wreckage of this administrations disastrous venture socialism. Heres the tale of just one Colorado company victimized by the Obama Department of Energy (DOE). Colorado Distribution Group is a privately held storage and shipping company based in Denver. anks to hope-a-nomics, its warehouse is saddled with nearly 7,000 pallets of federally subsidized solar panels (one-third of which are completely spoiled and unsalable), along with related detritus such as broken glass and stray module parts. While $22,000/month in storage costs go unpaid, the panels consume up to a third of the companys warehouse space. Legal costs have forced CDG to slash payroll and lay o at least three employees. A source with knowledge of CDGs woes told me this week the company is facing pressure by the Department of Energy to drop its petition to recoup those costs. e feds want CDG to swallow a $1.4 million tab to dispose of the bum solar panels. In July, according to Dow Jones, CDG asked a Delaware bankruptcy court for permission either to sell or collect rent on the property Abound Solar Inc. has at its facility, saying the situation is threatening its ability to stay in business.Ž Like many private enterprises in the Age of Obamas Brass-Knuckled Politics of Revenge, fear of retribution holds back many from coming forward publicly about such attempted shakedowns. CDG serves industries ranging from automotive to food and beverage, electronic, medical, furniture, clothing, sporting goods and telecommunications. Founded in 2005, CDG handles distribution, ful“ llment, transportation, logistics and inventory management using a high-tech data system. For the past three years, the company warehoused solar panels manufactured by Fort Collins-based Abound Solar. Yes, Abound Solar. Also known as: Colorados own Solyndra. In June, less than a year after fellow Obama green boondoggle Solyndra went belly up, Abound “ led for bankruptcy. As I reported in March, the “ nancial outlook of the $400 million DOE loan guarantee recipient was based on false hope and imaginary change. Obamas envirocrats ignored bright red ” ags from Fitch Ratings about Abounds substandard technology and failures to meet basic e ciency targets. Abound borrowed $70 million against its $400 million Obama DOE loan guarantee; taxpayers will lose up to $60 million on the loan after the bankruptcy proceedings are complete. Nearly 125 Abound Solar employees lost their jobs. Screwed-over companies like CDG that did business with Abound are not alone. At least one other warehouse in Colorado is storing the costly panels. And an untold number of related contractors and businesses have been sti ed. I did a lot of machining for Abound,Ž one business owner told me this summer, and they went under owing me a fair amount.Ž Recently released internal documents show that customers demanded replacements for the panels after experiencing low performance,Ž under performanceŽ and catastrophic failures.Ž Credit and technical advisers at DOE complained about having major issuesŽ with the Abound Solar deal and expressed concern over the transaction pressure under which we are all now operating.Ž e documents ” y in the face of Obamas denial -just days before Election Day -that his White House played any role in this “ scal disaster. e investigative work of Colorados Todd Shepherd at CompleteColorado.com, Amy Oliver at the Independence Institute and Michael Sandoval now of the Heritage Foundation exposed Abounds crony ties to the Obama administration. Like Solyndra, Abound had a deep-pocketed bundler with ties to the White House. Progressive activist and billionaire heiress Pat Stryker, a repeat visitor to the Obama White House, owns an investment “ rm that invested considerably in Abound and donated nearly $500 million to the Democrats between 2008 and 2012. Criminal and civil probes into Abound Solars alleged malfeasance -there are reports that the “ rm knowingly sold faulty goods -have been launched in both Colorado and on Capitol Hill. e stench of pay-for-play abounds. While Obama giddily promises his cronies and sycophants that the best is yet to come,Ž small-business owners are “ ghting for their lives. Wheres their fair shareŽ?

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Letter to the EditorOUR DEAR AMERICA Where do you go from here?by Wolfgang and Mercy Simson, GermanyToday, Obama has been re-elected; all the e orts of many Christian leaders, prayer movements, prophetsŽ and concerned AmericansŽ who have lobbied, written appeals, articles, books, letters some have even done “ lms to warn not to vote for him have come to nothing. Many of them have behaved as if the future of the Kingdom of God is at stake. Well, it is not. Can we, as foreigners who dearly love you as a people, say a few words into this situation? Because it is evident to us that God has a clear plan with your nation. But many don t seem to see it, and therefore run the danger of “ ghting the wrong “ ght, wasting precious time and resources, and even endlessly call upon God to do what he just will not do. e German weekly Der Spiegel, kind of a German Time Magazine, has a cover picture of Uncle Sam in bed, titled, e American Patient: e decline of a Great Nation. We think this is a prophetic picture. As your friends, we know, acknowledge and admire that America has had a great past. But how will your future look like? God chastises whom he loves because he knows: pride will come before the fall, and humbleness and brokenness is the only condition he responds to. We personally sense we need to tell you: the destiny of your nation is in Gods hands, not yours. It is not at all about Obama or Romney, it is about God using all the nations in the world according to his global and unchanging plans. Did you ever allow the thought that God in his sovereignty is using Obama like a pawn on his chessboard to humble the US as a nation because he wants to show his grace to a nation gone completely self-su cient? A nation that is so full of independence, individualism, nationalism and trusting a greedand fearbased economy that there may be only one way open to heal it from its idolatry and re-align itself with the Kingdom of God: a crisis beyond anything that America has ever seen? In 2008, God has been challenged by a man standing up in public, preaching to the cheers of a huge crowd: Yes we can!Ž We watched it; we saw the tears of excitement in the eyes of the people; the statements were received as if coming from the Messiah himself, and the electoral rallies had all the ” avor of a religious revival. Yes, we canŽ is the exact opposite of the King of kings saying: Without me, you can do nothing!Ž If God is the one who deposes kings and raises up othersŽ (Dan 2:21), does it really The Hope-a-Nomics Disaster: One Company’s Horror Storycontinued on page 5A

Next, a New DocumentŽ window will populate, giving you the opportunity to browse for your desired template. You can either scroll down through the options of templates, or as another shortcut, type in Holiday Photo CardŽ in the Search Microsoft O ce Online for a TemplateŽ search window. e search window will automatically populate the available templates from which to choose. Once you have found the one you want, click on it to upload the template on your blank document page. Instructions for each section will be available on the template.

What does Dodd-Frank, passed in response to the 2008 economic crisis and aimed at reforming a vast swathe of the “ nancial sector, have to do with farmers? A great deal. Among the instruments covered by the Commission's proposals are agricultural commodity "swaps." Basically, swaps empower farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses and other food suppliers to hedge against certain risks common to their trade, like bad weather or a crash in the price of a food item they sell. Swaps might sound like they serve some distant, exotic purpose far removed from the lives of average Americans. But they play a key role in providing food producers with a basic level of “ nancial security through tough times, which helps to ensure price stability for consumers. Consequently, the way the Commission imposes DoddFrank rules on these instruments will have a profound e ect on Americans' pocketbooks. And right now, all signs indicate the Commission's approach to implementing Dodd-Frank is going to inadvertently smother agricultural swaps with overregulation. In the rush to prevent another crisis, it has cast its net too wide. As a result, Dodd-Frank could make risk management signi“ cantly more costly for America's farmers, driving up volatility in the market and potentially leading to huge price increases for consumers. e Commission's new rules a ect agricultural commodity swaps that aren't sold on exchanges and don't run through third-party intermediaries -so-called "over-the-counter" swaps. Consider a bread baker in Kansas City. He buys thousands of pounds of ” our each year. Because of this year's droughts, though, he's worried that America's wheat supply will shrink, driving up ” our prices over the next twelve months. So, to hedge against a price spike, he buys $10,000 in over-the-counter ” our swaps today to guarantee that next year he'll be able to purchase up to 10,000 pounds of ” our for $1 per pound. In 12 months, if the price of ” our is dramatically higher, he'll have saved himself a huge amount of money. e price could also be lower, of course, but that's the risk he runs in order to guarantee he won't go bankrupt. Right now, over-the-counter agricultural swaps are mostly unregulated. But that shouldn't be a point of concern -these instruments had nothing to do with the “ nancial meltdown. Nevertheless, this new round of Dodd-Frank rules would impose a slew of new requirements on these instruments. Buyers and sellers would have to trade them on approved exchanges, and they would need to have a certain level of capital on hand to trade. Reporting rules regarding pro“ ts and losses would be ratcheted up. ere would also be mandatory "clearing," meaning swap trades would be required to run through certi“ ed middlemen. is is a particularly backwards idea. e over-the-counter agriculture swap market has been running safely and e ciently for years without mandatory middlemen. No one -not even the regulators charged with implementing Dodd-Frank -claims otherwise. On the other hand, the traditional futures market operating under mandatory clearing rules has been home to some of the biggest “ nancial meltdowns of the last few years. About a billion dollars evaporated before the brokerage “ rm MF Global declared bankruptcy in October 2011. And Peregrine Financial had racked up a $200 million shortfall in customer funds before it was forced to shut down in July. e clearing rules regulators are so eager to foist on overthe-counter agricultural swaps were in full force for both MF Global and Peregrine. And yet, the system still su ered massive losses. is regulatory structure is obviously broken. So implementing Dodd-Frank as planned means forcing agriculture swaps to move from a regulatory environment that is universally acknowledged to be working well to one that has failed repeatedly to prevent fraud and abuse. at's just senseless. Overregulation can be just as dangerous and costly as under-regulation. And in this case, these invasive Dodd-Frank rules could dramatically drive up operation costs for farmers, ranchers, and others involved in food production. e rise in expenses would, in turn, be passed along to American consumers in the form of higher food prices. Some farmers would no doubt be driven out of the swaps market altogether. With no way to manage “ nancial risk, the next hurricane or tornado could put them out of business. At the very least, regulators need to give themselves more time to study this issue by installing a three-year moratorium on the Dodd-Frank rules governing agricultural commodities. Blindly marching ahead and imposing strict new requirements on these instruments would wind up doing substantially more harm than good. Don Coursey is Ameritech Professor of Public Policy Studies at the Harris School of the University of Chicago.E ects of Dodd-Frank on OTC Ag Swaps e Dodd-Frank Net Might Ensnare the Family Mealmatter what are the names of the current puppets set in place by God that advance both the New World Order and the Kingdom of God? Neither Herod, Pilate nor Caesar were truly important for the development of the Kingdom. at is exactly why Kingdom people do not play in the Second League, but the First, the one that matters. e one that puts the Kingdom “ rst, and everything else including their own nation second. e problem of the current commotion and insecurities arises when even the people that call themselves after God keep confusing the Kingdom of God with the United States of America. And when that happens, especially through Christians with a public voice, then we have truly lost all perspective of the coming Kingdom of Jesus Christ and the predictions He has made that will precede His coming. America is being publicly humbled by God; and he is going to use Obama and those after him to further advance his agenda that will lead all nations to kneel before that one true King Jesus very soon. If any nation wants to become a tower that reaches up to high heaven, it will be humbled by a God who will not share his glory with people relying on their own strength. America, where do you go from here? What does this mean for you? e future is going to be very, very rough. Your securities will vanish, the economy will go down, the education system will become even worse, the streets more dangerous, the churches even more divided, the youth even more disillusioned unless there is a true movement that abandons all those idols mentioned above, and radically repents, makes a radical alignment with the King of the Kingdom of God and his constitution, live the Law of Christ in all areas of life, “ rst and foremost in the areas of sex, money, power and how we do churchŽ. is is a de“ ning moment for you as a nation. You could go down, as the German journalist of `Der Spiegel predicted. Or, America could be literally re-invented by Kingdom people who are ready to implode the prevailing myths about Americas greatness, and replace it by Gods greatness. e King has even greater things purposed and would ful“ ll those purpose IF those who call themselves after Jesus the King, would turn away from their self-made religion, self-made churches and religious factions, self-made visions of success, and their self-made, harmless God. Can we lovingly but urgently call you back at this hour to begin and initiate a movement to reposition and repatriate yourselves into the eternal Kingdom, by submitting yourself not only in theory but also in practical deeds to Jesus the King, starting to obey the King and his liberating decrees in all the areas that count? You might even want to write a declaration of dependence on God and each other, because by idolizing anything else before and over God, you will become illegal aliens in the country that counts, where we all are called to have our home: the Kingdom, the one place where our true citizenship, nationality and allegiance lies (Phil 3:20). is is the only one country that will not be shaken, as it has an unchanging King.

Floridas food producers supply our essential needs for a healthy diet and help maintain our stable material security. Consumers, in turn, help farmers and ranchers remain in business by purchasing the foods they grow. Each year during the week before anksgiving agricultural producers join with other residents to celebrate their mutual relationships during Farm-City Week. A national observance, Farm-City Week 2012 will be celebrated from Nov. 16 through Nov. 22. Members of County Farm Bureaus and other volunteers throughout Florida will mark the occasion by holding public meal functions, sponsoring farm tours and conducting other activities that help educate non-farmers about contemporary agriculture. Many Farm Bureau members will make donations of food to charitable organizations that aid needy citizens as part of the event. Participants in Farm-City Week will also emphasize the importance of essential relationships with urban residents to supply, sell and deliver “ nished products across the country and around the world. e availability of a safe, abundant domestic food supply makes possible the quality of life in our state. Good management of farm properties provides greenspace, maintains wildlife habitat, preserves freshwater recharge areas and controls invasive species. Every day our Florida farmers and ranchers work hard to produce more than 300 commodities,Ž said John Hoblick, president of Florida Farm Bureau Federation.  ey know that it takes many partnerships with other citizens to bring food to the family table. We are proud of those partnerships and we look forward to celebrating them during Farm-City Week. We also appreciate the e orts of so many volunteers around the state in planning and organizing Farm-City Week events.Ž According to researchers at the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, agriculture and related sectors generate an economic impact of $135 billion annually. is sector also employs more than 1.6 million workers in our state. Farm-City Week gives all of us an opportunity to thank our fellow Floridians who help make the bounty of our food supply possible.Farmers and Consumers Celebrate Farm-City Week Wounded Veterans continued from page 1A Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumers Services Florida Forest Service that provides recreational opportunities, including hunting and “ shing, to wounded veterans on Florida State Forests. Areas of Florida State Forests dedicated to this e ort are fully equipped to accommodate the needs of wounded veterans, providing a unique opportunity for recreation and rehabilitation.

Government Contracting e Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern Procurement Program allows federal agencies to set acquisitions aside for exclusive competition among service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns. Federal prime contracting dollars awarded to Service-Disabled VeteranOwned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs) increased for the “ fth consecutive year to $11.2 billion, or 2.65 percent, in FY2011, up from $10.793 billion, or 2.50 percent, in FY2010. Over the last year, SBA has created a series of online contracting courses called Government Contracting (GC) Classroom to help prospective and existing small businesses, including VOSBs and SDVOSBs, understand the basics about contracting with federal agencies. In addition, the O ce of Veterans Business Development provides procurement training to SDVOSBs to help them take advantage of federal contracting opportunities under the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern Procurement Program. SBA reaches out to veterans through its 68 SBA district o ces, 15 Veterans Business Outreach Centers nationwide, more than 1,000 Small Business Development Centers, 110 Womens Business Centers and some 12,000 SCORE volunteers, more than 40 percent of whom are veterans.

We have learned so much about the building of the Museum. e building was built as funds became available. e Log Cabin Quilters and their friends raised $18,000.00 in two years so the building could begin. It took four years to complete and many fundraisers held by the ladies, most were 60 and older. Several of the original members are still with us. ank you ladies and your families for giving up so much of your time to get the Museum built. We hope to see you at the Quilt Show. Its time to see how the inside of the building looks now. e rocking chairs are waiting.One of the treasures we found was this quilt made by Lorraine Stone (1912 2007) in 1991. The two ties in the center belong to Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford. The twenty-nine in a semi-circle around the Presidents' ties are from Governors at that time. Mrs. Stone took the time to request ties from all the Governors and she received these ties in response.

Last years e ort was not only a fun day but a very successful day. Visitors to Manatee Springs State Parks Clay Landing Days on Nov. 23 and 24 can go back in time to an era when televisions and cell phones and indoor plumbing would not come into being for more than a century. A time when pioneer families living near the Suwannee River at Clay Landing made do with what they could produce from the land. e park provides guided tours through the forested areas. Visitors are introduced to settlers living beneath a tent in the woods or a Seminole warrior and his family living in a chickee, a dwelling made of logs and covered with tightlythatched palm fronds for a roof. e name of the event comes from the old Clay Landing settlement that dates back to the 1840s. A sign along one of the trails in Manatee Springs State Park notes that Isaac Hardee owned a portion of the land that later became park property. He bought the property in 1860 for $1.25 per acre. Rangers say Hardees property was probably in the northern part of the park. e state acquired the land for Manatee Springs State Park in 1949. According to rangers, the land has a fascinating history that they are trying to bring back to visitors there when everything on the land was used. Visitors can load up onto a covered wagon or take a hay ride for the tours. Visitors are also introduced to a pioneer family that creates a camp “ re with no matches. ey cook tasty biscuits and distribute them to visitors. Volunteers act out the parts and introduce visitors to a Seminole encampment where Seminole ladies rest comfortably in the chickee hut on a raised sleeping platform. A group of Seminoles cook a pig out back. At trails end, visitors can observe a settler spin yarn from a living angora rabbit as she plucks small bits of angora wool from the rabbits shaggy coat and manipulates the spinning wheel with her foot. Next door, craftsman demonstrates his skills as a white cooper,Ž a person who fashioned water buckets, churns and other household items from precision-crafted wood, ringed with wide iron bands. e white coopers often traveled and would build their household items in exchange for a meal and six pieces of wood they could use for next wood product. e early settlers used these wooden vessels in their kitchens to hold ” our or water or to churn butter. e coopers used no glue or nails to build their wood household products.

Finding Yourself in Him Ellzey UnitedMethodist ChurchCorner of 336 & Hwy 24 Worship Service ............ 11 a.m. Sunday School. ...............10 a.m.Pastor Doug Fleming What in the world,Ž I declared as I peered out the front blinds. Kailey, get out there and tell your brother to get in the house.Ž e wind was whipping through our little cove, swift dark clouds had begun to sputter, and Joshua, my “ ve year old, was out meandering around the cove barefooted like the village idiot. I just shook my head. As Kailey loped down the front yard, I watched Joshua turn, lean de“ antly into the wind, and set his jaw like ” int. She wont be able to turn him,Ž I thought. Sure enough, she spoke her piece, stomped angrily, and hu ed back up the yard to the house to tattle. It was a well-traveled road. As Kailey began to dispose her sentiments regarding my role as parent she was soundly interrupted with a shrill squawking akin to that of the dying squall of a Mexican Seagull. We exchanged looks. e sound was coming up the front steps. It was Joshua. I didnt do itƒŽ Kailey declared just as Joshua ” ung open the door. However, he bopped in with a big smile on his face, although still whooping like a rabid crane. Whats wrong with you boy,Ž I said, Dont you know we got neighbors?Ž I reached to cover his mouth, but he wrestled free. Daaaddy!Ž He cried, looking at me like I was the idiot. He shook himself o took a deep breath, and promptly went back to hollering. Josh!Ž I lamented, What are you doing!!!?Ž He leveled on me with a “ erce look of righteous indignation and said boldly, Im JOSHUA daddy. I walked round dem big walls a Jerco. Now Im shouting em down!Ž I shouldve known. Since hes been old enough to tote a trumpet Ive been tooting his horn and telling him about the Joshua of the Bible, and hes mighty eager to live up to his moniker. For example, when we go on family walks he insists on being out front. Why? Hes Joshua, fearless leader of Gods people. He loves his name. I overheard him thanking God for it the other day. Many people dont put much stock in the importance of names. I can understand. One of the biggest fellows I ever met was called TinyŽ. Yet oftentimes, names do matter, especially for those searching for their identity in this world. How many people do your suppose have grown up identifying with, and limiting themselves to, the disparaging names they were called as children? Maybe youre one of them. If youve been called hurtful things, I encourage you to spend some quiet time with Jesus. Look deep into His eyes, and listen to what He calls you. ank goodness for Guidance Counselors, Moms, Dads, Pastors and Prophets, but their lengthiest opinions and loudest commands could never undo a single word whispered from the lips of the Lordthat is, if you will believe it. God has never been opposed to changing peoples names midstream eitherAbram to Abraham, Simon to Peter, Saul to Paul just to recall a few. He used these new titles to challenge these men to begin to see themselves di erently. ese new names raised the bar of their expectations and gave each of them a glimpse into what God saw regarding their character. Its only in the Lord we “ nd our true identity anyhow. Did you know He already has a special new name picked out for those who trust Him? (To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. Revelations 2:17 KJV) But anywayRecently, after reading the Bible my girl Kailey decided she wants me to start calling her Esther. I dont know about thatƒ but apparently she sees herself as a beautiful young godly Queen who the Lord has raised up to help save His people. Cool! ats exactly the way I see her. I know its the way her heavenly Dad does. -Guy She eld www.butanyway.org Manatee Springs Church of ChristSunday 10 a.m. .............................Bible Study 11 a.m.......................Worship Period 5 p.m. .......................Worship Period Wednesday 7 p.m. ...............................Bible StudyMinister Gene Dumas352-542-0657 or 352-493-7775Our goal is to Speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent.Ž We seek Bible authority for the things that we believe and practice. 11450 NW 76th Terr., Chieand Church CalendarBronson United Methodist Church Events e Anzonetta Epperson Circle of the Bronson United Methodist Church will be having their annual Christmas Bazaar on Fri., Nov. 16 from 10 AM to 2 PM in the fellowship hall of the church. ere will be hand-crafted items for sale and many home baked goods. ere is always a good selection of cakes, pies, cookies and fudge.

Rinse and pat the turkey dry. Stu or not. Prepare 1/4 cup of stu ng for each pound of turkey. Soften 1/4 pound butter and rub over the entire turkey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the turkey breast side down on a paper covered rack in a roasting pan. Mix 1/4 cup water with 1/4 pound melted butter and baste every 20 minutes until enough pan drippings have accumulated in the bottom of the pan for basting. Cook 15 minutes per pound if the turkey weighs less than 16 pounds and 12 minutes per pound if it is heavier. Turn breast side up after one hour or 1 1/2 hours for the heavier bird. When a thermometer registers 170 degrees in the breast and 185 in the thigh, remove the turkey to a platter and cover for 15 minutes before carving. Turning the turkey breast side down allows the juices from the bird to ” ow into the drier breast meat. Allowing the bird to rest covered allows the hot juices to settle down and remain in the turkey when cut. ese instructions came from my favorite cookbook  e Fannie Farmer CookbookŽ. Placing the breast side down works also for roasting whole chicken.TURKEY GRAVY4 tablespoons fat 3 tablespoons ” our 2 cups stock salt and pepper When the turkey has been placed on the platter remove all but 4 tablespoons of fat.
