Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@Calltel.net
Lafayette High School juniors and seniors, decked out
in their elegant, colorful, gowns and tuxedoes, danced
the night away during their prom night on Saturday,
March 31, in the high school gym.
The Enchanted Escape began at 9:30 p.m. and
lasted until midnight with the grand finale
being the crowning of Charles Hodge and
Katrina Tanner as the 2007 LHS Prom
King and Queen. Kevin Waters and
Kailey Sapp were crowned as
Prince and Princess. Last year,
Hodge was voted and
crowned by his peers as Mr.
LHS 2006, as part of the
Homecoming festivities.
Also present during the
gala affair were Lafayette
County School Board
members, Lafayette Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office person-
nel, parents, guardians, :
and- others who, not only
were enjoying the festivities
themselves, but also assisted
each other in,making sure that
prom night was-a huge success.
They also ensured that all of the
students enjoyed their time together."
As a special treat, while the disc
jockey guided and choreographed the
dance floor, the students and some of the
school staff could watch themselves dancing on
the big screen.

Pet owners across the
country continue to scratch
their heads in amazement
over how cat and dog food
became contaminated in
recent months. Some of
-them are so furious about
the problem that they are


contemplating the possibil-
ity of bringing legal action
against the companies who
produce and/or distribute
the affected pet food. Even
the Food and Drug Ad-.
ministration is baffled by
the discovery, who, along
with other organizations,
are scouring every inch of
the country for any leads,
that will assist them in pin-

At this time, the culprit,
according to the FDA, ap-
pears to be a form of rat
poison. How it became
mixed in with the pet food
remains a mystery to the
FDA and health officials.


FDA says that a definite
culprit is yet to be found.
Previously, it was thought
that wheat gluten was the
cause of the contamination.

and began as an orphan-
age, and later became a re-
tirement home for "worn
out missionaries and pas-
tors and wives." But, today,
93 years later, the village is
an exciting community
that offers services of all
types to the elderly, as well
as children and youth. Ad-
vent Christian Village is the
oldest retirement commu-
nity in Florida.
Carter said the village at
present has 825 residents,
475 employees and is locat-
ed on a 1200 acre campus.
He went on to explain
about the newest features
of the village such as the
W.B. Copeland Medical
Center which opened in
October. They have a full
time doctor on staff as well
as two physicians. assis-
tants. One of the exciting
things that Carter shared
with Rotarians and most
folks may not know is that
the new medical facility is
not only available for Ad-


vent Christian Village resi-
dents but for the general
public as well. They also
have a village pharmacy,
outpatient rehab center,
and soon to have a dental
clinic, all of which -are
available to the public. This
makes it much more conve-
nient if you have need' of
these services rather than
having to" go as far as
Gainesville or other areas.
Another feature at the
village is the Phillips Civic,
Center (Dining Room). This
is the main dining area and
plans are in the works to
double it in size. After this
completion it will seat
around 375 people, making
it convenient for large
groups gathering for vari-
ous events.
There are many more
facets of Advent Christian
Village such as -children's
ministries which offers 20-
25 educational scholarships
each year, Wee Care, a
newly completed, state of


Rotarian Angle Ceraso (L), and president
Roberts of First Federal.

Resource Development and
Marketing at Advent Christian

of Sonshine which is a chil-
dren's ministry for special
needs children ages 10-13.
They offer a three day camp
which is held in July for
these children. Carter said
this camp not only offers
something fun for these
.-kids to do, but also gives the
caregivers (parents) a break
as well.
There are also leadership
training sessions which is a
ministry for emerging
teachers currently in high
school. These training are
held for four different
weekends throughout a
year. During this time they
share in fellowship, camp-
ing trips, mentors that teach
from their experiences,
they learn decision making
skills, team building, etc.
All of these joint teaching
skills are in an effort to
"Equip Leaders for Tomor-
row."
All in all Advent Christ-
ian Village has a lot to offer
not only to their residents or
future residents but to the
surrounding communities.
After 93 years they are still
continuing in their ministry
of "expressing Christ's
love" in numerous ways.

horseshoe


sighting:
Biologists at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's Fish
and Wildlife Research In-
stitute need help from the
public in identifying
horseshoe crab spawning
beaches throughout the
state.
'The best time to find
horseshoe crabs spawning
is around a high tide right
before or just after a full or
new moon. The last full
moon was on Monday,
April 2.
Observant beachgoers
can report the time, date
and location of horseshoe
crab sightings through one
of the following conve-
nient options.
Fill out an online survey

E-mail information to

Dial toll-free 1-866-252-

Biologists also want to
know how many horse-
shoe crabs observers see
and whether the horseshoe
crabs are spawning.


To manage the species
more effectively, the At-
lantic States Marine Fish-
eries Commission requires
all Atlantic coastal states
to identify horseshoe crab
spawning beaches.
Horseshoe crabs benefit
humans in several ways.
For instance, research on
the compound eyes of
horseshoe .crabs led to bet-
ter understanding of the
human visual system, and
horseshoe crab blood is
useful in the biomedical
industry. In addition,
manufacturers use the ma-
terial that makes up the
horseshoe crab's shell
chitinn) to make contact
lenses, skin creams and
hair sprays.
Many citizens have re-
sponded to the horseshoe
crab nesting beach survey
since it began in 2002. Biol-
ogists regularly update the
survey results. Visit

Mayo Cafe, owned and operated by Belinda Travis, is
located on US Hwy 27, just north and within walking

her restaurant is open five days a week from 5 a.m. until
9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 5 a.m. to 10
p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
They serve home cooked
Seals consisting of fried
V., chicken, corn, desserts,
and other entrees.
Travis took over the
business after her
a 'mother, Shirley Wat-
SK son, became ill and
was unable to contin-
ue to operate the
^ business. According
S ". to Travis, Watson ran
the business for 11
years. Since taking the
reigns approximately sev-
en years ago, Travis
has been owner and
Cynthia Koon operator of Mayo Cafe.
For anyone who is
thinking about owning and operating a business of their
own, Travis says that you need to "be very knowledge-
able about the business that you are going into, be flexi-
ble, and always be prepared for the unexpected."
Subs and More, located near Lafayette High School on
US Hwy 27, is owned and operated by Kelli Joyner. For
six years, Subs and More has
been feeding its. customers
"subs, burgers, and pizza.

ur-

a drug store in Mayo. "My father, Daryl West, was the
local pharmacist from 1952 until his death in 1993. He
was told as a young man that a pharmacy would never
survive in Mayo, but he didn't give the comment a sec-
ond thought, and for 41 years, he survived very well,"
Koon said.
Sandy Wimberley, is the owner and operator of
Sandy's Country Curl, located at the intersection of CR
400 and US Hwy 51. Her business is open from 8 a.m.
until the last appointment scheduled from Tuesday to
Saturday.
Since 1985, Sandy's Country Curl has been cutting hair
for the local community as well as for anyone just pass-
ing by looking for haircut.
Wimberley stated that she would not be as successful
as she is today without the help of her family, especially


success, especially her
friends, the prayers of-
fered on her behalf by
Mayo Baptist Church,
and her dedicated
customers.
If you are leaving
Mayo and travel
south on US Hwy 51,
you will encounter a
small town called
Cooks Hammock. As
you enter the town, there
is-a small country
store on the right
owned by Janet Story.


With the help of her family
and friends, Joyner held her
head high and never gave up
on her dream of having a
business of her own. "My
family and friends inspired
me because they believed in
what I wanted to do," Joyner
said.
LaRonna Johnson
and her sister, Lau-
rette Barger, are co-
owners of Two Sisters
Barbecue. Their busi-
ness is located on
Mainstreet in Mayd. According to Johnson, operating
hours are from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday
through Saturday. -. ,40"4
Two Sisters Barbecue has been in bus- ,' -
ness for approximately three years. .
The restaurant, according to Barger,
serves BBQ that will make your
mouth water. "We are a family ori-
ented restaurant, serving real open
pit BBQ along with a variety of
sandwiches, steak, and burgers,"
Barger said.
Johnson and Barger began Two Sis-
ters Barbecue because they wanted to '"
be closer to each other. They did not .
want to work nine to five jobs and
not be able to spend time together Mozeta Bucham
as family. With the help of their
mother and father, as well as in-
spiring each other to become business partners, Two Sis-
ters Barbecue was born. "We just kept looking ahead,
knowing that we left behind
l..: great co-workers and put our
faith in God. The faith and
support of our parents
helped a lot," Johnson
---, said.


If you need a hair-
cut, a sprucing up for
a special someone, or
to look your best for
an upcoming event, .
then there are several
hair stylists to choose
from: Cindy's Hairstyling,
Sandy's Country Curl,
and Linda's Family Sa-
lon.

Lighthouse Realty on US Hwy 51. According to ,
Koon, her business hours are from 8 a.m. until 6
p.m., Monday through Friday, and, 7 a.m. until 3
p.m. on Saturday.
Since 1976, Koon has been in the hairstyling
business in Mayo. She stated that, without the
help of her parents, her dreams of owning,a busi-
ness would not have been realized. Koon also
stated that they gave her the encouragement, guid-
ance, and confidence that she needed to overcome
the obstacles that stood in her way.
Koon grew up in a family that owned and op-
erated their business in Lafayette County. Her
father, who passed from this life in 1993, owned Linda

her father. Their assistance provided her with the neces-
sary skills that she needed to pursue her dreams of own-
ing a business of her own. "My father taught me
great work ethics and people skills. His support-
ive nature has always inspired me to follow my
dreams," Wimberley said.
Approximately three miles west of Mayo is
Linda's Family Salon near the Lafayette
County Forestry station on US Hwy 27. It is
owned and operated by Linda Hyde.
Since 1999, Hyde has been cutting peoples'
hair. She stated that she enjoys her profes-
sion and always feels good when a customer
leaves with a smile on their face and comes
again for another haircut. '
According to Hyde, she would not be
nan where she is today running a successful busi-
ness without the assistance of her family. "My
Dad always told me that if there's something
you really want to do, if you want it bad enough, and
work hard, you can do anything that you really want to
do. My Mom said to do just one thing
that's just for myself. So, I did, and
that's helping other people feel .
good about themselves," Hyde .'
said.

This recall deals with
Menu Foods, Inc. cuts and
gravy style pet food that is
packaged in cans as well as
foil pouches, according to
FDA Spokesperson Mike
Herndon. He also stated
that the sell date of these
products is from December
3, 2006 to March 6 of this
year. It was prompted by
reports to the FDA of dogs
and cats becoming ill or
dying as a result of con-
suming the poisoned pet
food.
If you believe your pet
may be among the many
canines and felines affect-
ed, the FDA encourages
you to check the list of re-
called items to see if the.
pet food you have is one of
those listed. After examin-
ing the list and you have
discovered that the prod-
uct you have purchased is
among those listed, the
FDA says that you should
consult your local veteri-
narian for more informa-
tion as well as about set-
ting up an appointment to
bring your pet in for a
thorough examination and
possible treatment if
deemed necessary.
Dogs and cats that con-
sume any of the infected
products may suffer one or
a conglomerate of symp-
toms. According to local
veterinarian, Lindsey Jack-
son, DVM, the most com-
mon symptoms are vomit-
ing, disorientation, a loss
of appetite, weakness, and
a change in the ability to'
consume water and uri-
nate. He further states that


these symptoms are signs
of kidney failure.
Jackson encourages resi-
dents to contact him imme-
diately at 294-5000 if your
pet is exhibiting any of
these symptoms. "If the pet
has eaten these foods and
becomes sick, please take
your pet to a veterinarian
immediately for examina-
tion. If the pet is not sick, I
suggest you still have the
animal examined and
screened for kidney dis-
ease. This disease can pre-
sent itself in different
ways, thus a veterinary ex-.
amination is where a pet
owner should start if con-
cerned about potential
problems," Jackson said.

JV Hornets complete regular season

Sports Correspondent
The Lafayette Hornet junior
varsity baseball team completed
their regular season schedule on


'.5...


a winning note posting a 11-3
win over visiting Dixie County
last Friday. The Hornets fin-
ished the regular season at 7-8.
The game was called after five


innings because of getting start-
ed late. Dixie County arrived 30
minutes after game time. How-
ever, five innings was plenty of
time for the Hornets to get the


win in. Ethan Perry hurled the
first three innings in picking up
the win. He did not allow a run
and gave up but one hit. He
struck out three batters and

walked one. Kade Bell pitched
the fourth inning retiring all
three batters he faced.
Austin Anderson took the hill
for the fifth inning and gave up
the three runs to the Bears. He
started the inning in fine fashion
getting the first two batters on a
bouncer back to the mound and
a strike out. But his control
went south as he walked the
next three batters he faced to
load the bases. Two runs scored
on Raker's base hit and the third
run crossed the plate on an er-
ror.
The Hornets put the game
away early with six runs in the
first inning as 11 batters parad-
ed to the plate. Bell started the
rally with a double, advancing
to third when the ball was mis-
played in centerfield. With two
outs, Perry singled to score Bell.
Brooks Laminack and Ben Bell
had base hits and RBI's. Austin
Anderson singled home a run
and Kade Bell, batting for the
second time in the inning, had a
bloop single to left that scored
the final run.
Perry was impressive in the
first inning for the Hornets but
experienced control problems in
the second inning but did es-
i cape with out any runs scored
against him. He struck out Cody
Spurlin and Kyle Skelly to end
the inning.
Four runs crossed the plate for
Lafayette in the second inning
as eight batters batted. Alex
Gresham had a two-run double


KADE BELL WAS SAFE at third base in the third inning against Dixie County. Bell had two hits in his team's 11-3 win over the Bears. Bell also pitched a score-

Bell faced the minimum
batters in the fourth in-
ning although he did walk
a batter. But a pitchers
best friend, a double play,
got him out of the inning.
The Hornets scored their
final run in the third on a
lead off base hit by Serigo
Perez. A two-base throw-
ing error allowed him to
take third base. He scored

end the frame. It was a suc-
cessful third inning for the
Hornets as they plated
their five runs in the third.
Gresham's second hit of
the night ignited the rally
to start the inning. After
Mercedes pop to short,
Bryd drilled his two-run
home run; a blast that left
the ball park in a hurry.
The hit parade continued
for Lafayette on consecu-
tive singles by Fillyaw and
ee for Colby Keen. Walker

with Fillyaw scoring when
Hempstead grounded out
to second for an RBI. Skelly

and Walker to score. The

the shutout with two runs
in their half of the fourth
inning. Bret Sullivan
opened the inning for the
Bears with a single with
Pinner drawing a walk.
Both runners came home
on Qusenberry's two-run
single.
The Hornets were quite
in the fourth and fifth in-
nings but struck for four
more runs in their half of
the sixth inning. The in-
ning unfolded when Sin-
gletary walked, stole sec-
ond and scored on Gre-
sham's third hit of the
game. After Mercedes
walked, Byrd got his fifth
RBI of the night on a sacri-
fice drive to deep center-
field. Walker singled home
the final run in the inning.
Against Hempstead, the
Bears added their final two
runs in the sixth frame.
Both runs were unearned
against Hempstead when
the Hornets defense col-
lapsed and committed
three errors.
Hempstead retired the fi-
nal three batters he faced
in the seventh inning.
Lafayette had five errors
for the night, uncharacter-
istic of the Hornets. They
stranded seven base run-
ners. Bret Sullivan had two

on a wild pitch to make it
3-0.
While the Hornets were
plating runs, Keen kept
the Bulldogs off stride at
the plate with his off
speed pitches. He scat-
tered four Taylor County
hits in six innings. He
worked out of jams in
each of the second, fifth
and sixth innings in keep-
ing the Bulldogs off the
' scoreboard.
In the Hornet third, Gre-
sham's blast made it 4-0.
Byrd collected his second
hit in the inning but was
left stranded again. The
Hornets scored two un-
earned runs in their half of
the fourth inning to take a
6-0 lead. Keen and Walker
both reached on errors be-
fore Keen scored on
Hempstead's RBI single.
Skelly singled home Walk-
er for the second run.

The final Hornet run
came in the fifth when
Fillyaw homered to lead
off the inning.
In the Bulldog seventh, a
walk and three mistakes
allowed the Bulldogs to
avoid the shutout. Keen
picked up the win, strik-
ing out three batters while
allowing just the four Bull-
dog hits. Hempstead did
not allow a hit in his one
inning of work. Taylor
County put their leadoff
batter on base from the
second inning on but
failed to move the runners
around.
Derek Miller started on
the mound for Taylor
County working the first
three innings and getting
the loss. Miller allowed
five runs while giving up
six hits. He was followed
to the mound by Brandon
Mock who allowed two
runs on two hits. Josiah
Anderson collected two of

Chad Michael Crosby,
31, is accused of one
count of animal torture
and two counts of child
endangerment, with each
one punishable by up to a
maximum of two years in
prison and/or a maximum
fine of $6,250 per charge.
Prosecutors allege on
Feb. 14 Crosby inflicted
severe physical pain with
a depraved or sadistic in-
tent to cause prolonged
suffering or death upon
the family pet, an 11-
month-old chocolate
Labrador named "Kane."
The two counts of child
endangerment stem from
the same incident in
which Crosby knowingly
acted in a manner that
created a substantial phys-
ical, mental, emotional,
health or safety risk to
two children under the age
of 14.

Since the initial attack
against Kane and subse-
quent news coverage, the
Stephen Memorial Animal
Shelter in Oskaloosa has
received several hundred
cards, letters and e-mails
and more than $14,000 in
donations to offset the
medical bills.
Gabby Evans, director
of the shelter, said money
has come from across
Iowa and other states, like


Missouri, Wisconsin and
Colorado.
"It's amazing to me. It's
absolutely amazing the
outpouring he has gotten,"
Evans said. "I'm really,
really dumbfounded at the
outpouring."
Evans said Kane would
require at least three and
possibly four surgeries
that will cost close to
$6,000. Kane's first
surgery was performed at


The money left over
will be set aside in Kane's
Critical Care Fund to help
other pets.
"We can't save them all
but we can sure make a
difference in the lives of
many," Evans said.
Kane is recuperating at
a foster home. Evans said
when Kane was first taken
in, he had a broken pelvis,
a broken canine tooth and
a crushed molar. Kane's
past injuries include a
pelvic fracture, left elbow
fracture with a free piece
of bone and significant
arthritis around the joint.
Evans said Kane is still
the property of the shelter
and they have received
numerous inquiries about
adopting him.

Volunteers are wanted and
needed four hours a week on

Something to Smile About
People have reasons to visit the dentist these days beyond routine .
checkups and cavity fillings. Cosmetic dentistry-procedures are
becoming very popular, particularly among those aged 20 to 50,
who make up much of the country's workforce. People in this age
group have become increasingly interested not only in looking and .
feeling better, but also in using cosmetic procedures to enhance their
careers by presenting a more attractive image. Tooth whitening and ',. '
veneers are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures. '.^ -


A Brighter Shade of Pale
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
(AACD), teeth whitening procedures performed to reduce the
discoloration and staining of teeth have become the most popular
cosmetic dental procedures today. Over the last five years, interest
in these procedures has increased by 300 percent. While women are
more likely than men to go for whitening, more and more men are
having the procedure as well.
Coffee, tea, smoking and medications are all factors that
contribute to tooth discoloration. White teeth provide the
appearance of good hygiene and health, which is why whitening has
become so popular.
Dentists can suggest a number of treatments for whitening teeth.
There are over-the-counter strips and gels that can be used at home.
But -in-office procedures such as laser bleaching have proven very
popular because they take less time to see results than other
methods. Usually only one visit is required and teeth are white after
one hour or less. Custom-fit tray bleaching is another option, where
a custom mold of the teeth is made from which a tray is fashioned.
The tray is filled with a bleaching gel by the patient at home and
worn for one to two hours a day. Results can typically be seen in a
week or more.
More Than a Coat of Varnish
Upon hearing veneer, one may think of the protective coating
applied to furniture and other home-improvement tasks. In the
realm of cosmetic dentistry, it refers to the adhesion of tooth-shaped
covers, for lack of a better word, that can transform the look of
misshapen or discolored teeth.
There are two general types of veneers: porcelain and composite
resin. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of specially-shaped
porcelain that are bonded over the front of your teeth. Composite
resin veneers, also known as direct veneers, are a material applied
directly to your teeth that the dentist sculpts to the desired shape.
Both procedures can be performed without anesthesia. Composite
veneers usually take one office visit, while porcelain ones require
two or more.


Cosmetic dentistry procedures can transform the look of discolored or misshapen teeth.
In the case of porcelain veneers, the veneer will increase the
thickness of the teeth slightly, so your natural teeth will be reduced
to accommodate the veneers. Other parts of the porcelain veneer
procedure include:
a custom mold of your teeth that will serve as a model for which
the veneers will be based
temporary veneers are worn until the permanent ones are ready,
at which point you can advise your dentist of any changes to size,
shape and color at this point
teeth will be buffed and also cleaned in a special solution to help
the veneers adhere properly
Composite veneers last for about five to seven years and cost
approximately $250 per tooth. Porcelain veneers are more durable,.
lasting 10 to 15+ years, but are also considerably more expensive at
$900 to $2500 a tooth.
There are several advantages to these cosmetic dentistry
procedures. A beautiful, vibrant smile is one of them. Because there
is no recovery time from whitening or veneers, they're also a quick
and relatively painless way to improve the appearance.
These procedures may cause increased tooth sensitivity or
discomfort, particularly for those who have sensitive teeth. Talk to
your dentist concerning options about improving comfort.

EASTER


By Pam Campbell
It is almost time for Easter, a time when many people
all over the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus
Christ! There are other things that people think of when
talking about Easter, finding the perfect Easter clothes,
the right Easter candy or baskets and gifts, going on
Easter egg hunts, the Easter Bunny, coloring eggs, and
of course family dinners. There is nothing wrong with
these other parts of the holiday but they most definitely
should not come above the real meaning of Easter,
which is the resurrection of Jesus from the dead!
Do you teach your children the real meaning of this
holiday? Do they know that it is more than a time for
egg hunts and the Easter Bunny? Children need and
want to know that Jesus died for their sins and rose
again just for them! The Gospel is very simple; a child
can certainly understand the love of
God's son, Jesus. This Easter make it a
point to teach your children, grand-
children, or neighbor children about
the real meaning of Easter.. If you have
not found Jesus as your own personal
Savior, Easter is a wonderful time to
come to him! He is waiting for you
anytime with his arms open wide.
Maybe you already know the real
meaning of Easter and you celebrate
the resurrection of Jesus Christ from
the dead. We know that he died for
our sins, and we may have asked him
to save our souls, we may celebrate his
resurrection in Church every Easter.
The question is do you remember the
risen savior everyday of the year? Is
Jesus Christ your best friend, your
savior, your Lord, your Healer, do you
talk with him daily, do you read his
word, do you worship him and really .s*.
love him? When we get to the place
where we know our Savior Jesus
Christ in a personal way, we will want
to get off alone and spend time in his
awesome presence. We can talk to him
in prayer, worship him, and hear from
him as he answers us whether it be in
a still small voice, an audible voice,
through his Word, or through some
other means, he always answers. Jesus
was not just a wonderful man, or a
great figure in history, he was and is
the son of the only true, living God!
He came to this earth as a baby born
of a virgin in a lowly stable, he grew
up as a carpenter's son, and he was
knowledgeable way beyond his years
as a child teaching in the temple. He
became the greatest teacher the world
has ever known, he performed mira-
cles over and over, including raising
people from the dead. I know personally that he still
does this today. My daughter, Jennifer was born dead,
God did the miracle when the doctors all gave up and
she lives today!
Jesus taught his disciples well, though some did not
stay true to their Lord. He was mocked and ridiculed
and then he was betrayed and sentenced to death for
doing nothing wrong. He was laughed at and jokingly
called "the King of the Jews" when all the time he truly
was and is the King of all Kings! The people yelled cru-
cify him, and the crowds got their way, but only be-

cause it was written that the son of God must die a cru-.
el death for the salvation of the world. God knew that
we needed a perfect sacrifice, his own son who was
without spot or blemish to 'die for us, to take away our
sins and the sins of all the people of the world.
He let them sentence his only son, Jesus to death on a
cross. Jesus carried that old heavy wooden cross to Gol-
gotha's hill. As he carried that old cross, they beat him
over and over again, for our healing. You see they
thought that they were just torturing him before they
killed him, which they were, but it was for the healing
of all who are ever sick or afflicted with any sickness,
disease or injury. Jesus carried a 100 pound cross over
650 yards to the place where they .would hang him on
that very cross. He was beaten; the rough wood of the
cross was gouging his torn, dehydrated body. They


.Lo .~'"
*tV.c~.


beathim so horribly that he was barely recognizable,
his blood flowed for you and me. Isaiah 52:14a says,
"His visage was so marred more than any man." You
see we read in Isaiah 53:4-6 "But he was wounded for
our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with
his stripes we are healed." He actually paid the price
with his own flesh, his own blood for you to be healed!
That is a promise from God, so you really do have the
promise of God's miraculous healing for your body to-
day!


Jesus did not stop there, he knew that we needed
more than healing for our bodies; we needed salvation
for our very souls; He continued to carry that cross un-
til they got to the place of his crucifixion where they
cast lots for his clothing; they put a crown of thorns on
his head, and proceeded to hang him on that wooden
cross. They drove large rusty spikes into his hands and
his feet. I will share with you a quote from Dr. G.
Bradley concerning his death. "This was the most ago-
nizing death man could face, he had to support himself
in order to breathe, the flaming pain of the spikes hit-
ting the median nerve in the wrists explodes up his
arms, into his brain and down his spine. The spike
burning through the nerves of the feet jerks his body
erect, then the leg muscles convulse and drive his body
downward, beating him against the cross. Exhaustion,
shock, dehydration and paralysis destroy
-_ the victim." That is what Jesus suffered
S .-- for you; he shed his blood so that every-
one can be forgiven for every sin. He-
brews 9:22 "without the shedding of
blood there is no remission (for sins)."
Right before Jesus died he said the
most amazing words "Father, forgive
them; they know not what they do."
Luke 23:24 He then said it is finished and
it truly was, the sins of all mankind had
been paid for with Jesus blood. We are so
thankful the story does not end there.
Three days later just as he said he would,
Jesus defeated Satan, and he rose from
the dead! "The gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans
6:23 Everyone that asks Jesus into his
heart and life will be saved and will live
forever with him in heaven. The Bible
S' says in Acts 16:31 "Believe on the Lord
.':.. Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." If
*" you do not know Jesus, if you have not
asked him into your heart it is not too
late, he is waiting for you to pray, just
talk to him from your-heart; hewill come
into your heart and save your soul. He
longs to be your savior, your Lord, your
healer and your very best friend. You see
Jesus is Alive today! He has risen!
If you are a Christian and you have
accepted Jesus into your heart, I ask
you, do you spend time alone with him?
Do you spend time reading his word,
talking to him, worshipping him, draw-
ing closer to him each day, learning to
hear his voice and follow his leading?
.The Bible says "And you shall seek me,
and find me, when ye shall search for
me with all your heart," Jeremiah 29:13
When you take time to get alone with
the Lord he will meet you there, he
wants to spend time with you and fill
you with his peace and guide you with his hand, he
really loves you and will never fail you. Here is part
of a verse that really sums up where we should be in
our lives if we are truly Christians. "Fix your thoughts
on Jesus" Hebrews 3:1
Yes, Easter is coming; I pray that you and your fam-
ilies will have a wonderful time celebrating this won-
derful holiday, the resurrection of the Lord Jesus
Christ. If you do not really know him in a very person-
al way, take time to find him, he is right there where
you are.

- EASTER


By Pam Campbell
When you kids think of Easter, do you
think about egg hunts, Easter baskets or
new clothes? Maybe you think of no
school, or having a big dinner, church ser-
vices and family times. They are fun and I
like them too, but they are not the real
reason that we celebrate Easter.
The real reason for Easter is celebrating
Jesus Christ resurrection from the dead!
Easter Sunday could also be called Resur-
rection Sunday. You see Resurrection
means that Jesus rose up from the dead,
he died and now he is alive again! Easter
is all about Jesus dying for your sins and
your healing on that big wooden cross.
He died and rose again so that you can


know him as your personal Savior, your
Healer and your Best Friend everyday of
your whole life.
If you do not know Jesus Christ as
your savior, all you have to do is talk to
him, pray, ask him to forgive your sins
and come into your life and he will be
your very best friend! You can be saved,
Jesus will be your Best Friend! Just talk to
him and tell him you are sorry for any-
thing that you have done wrong and
want him to be your savior and he will.
Maybe you already know Jesus, maybe
you have already asked him into your
heart, to save your soul. Maybe you know
that is why we celebrate Easter. This East-
er take time to look at your life and see if


you are. really taking time to talk to him
everyday, and read his Bible or have
someone read it to you. Do you love him
with all your heart, do you tell him so
everyday? Can your family and friends
see that you love Jesus?
You see Jesus came to the earth as a hu-
man man, but he was really God's son.
God knew that all people needed Jesus to
save their souls. God gave his only son to
die on the cross for everyone's sins. Peo-
ple beat Jesus so that we can have his
healing when we are sick, then they hung
him on that cross with great big rusty
nails in his hands and his feet, and left
him there till he died. After he died, they
put him in a tomb, which is a grave, and
then just as God promised three days lat-
er Jesus rose up from that grave! Jesus
still lives today!
The Bible says in John 3:16 "For God so
loved the world that he gave his only be-
gotten son that whoever believes in him
will not die, but have eternal life." If you
have not asked Jesus into your heart, he


is waiting for you to pray, just talk to him
from your heart, he will save your soul.
He wants to be your savior, your Lord,
your healer and your very best friend.
You see Jesus is alive today. He has risen!
If you do know Jesus then remember the
verse in the Bible "Fix your thoughts on
Jesus" Hebrews 3:1 We need Jesus in our
thoughts everyday. You see Jesus did not
have to die a horrible painful death for
you; he did it because he loves you with
the greatest love of all.
Yes, Easter is almost here! New clothes,
the Easter egg hunts, the bunnies, bas-
kets, and candy are fun, but remember
that the real reason that there is Easter is
to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. En-
joy celebrating the holiday with your
family and friends; remind them that Je-
sus is risen from the dead, that he is
alive! Help them remember that Jesus
loves them!
I hope that you have a wonderful East-
er and that you will take time everyday
to talk to Jesus. Jesus Lives!

Seller's tip: Consider obtaining a pre-listing inspection when you are preparing to sell your home, H will
enable you to take care of minor, often unknown problems ahead of time and make the sale of your
home easier.

Buyer's tip: As soon as you have an accepted contract on a home, immediately begin to shop for
homeowner's insurance. Living in Florida can make obtaining a policy a little difficult during certain
times of the year. Do not risk waiting until the last minute, it may delay your closing.
Put our hometown knowledge of the Suwannee Valley area to work for you.

Dear Classified Guys,
Remember the days of cassette
tapes? You know those things that
came between the 8-track and the
CD. Well I have literally hundreds of
them and I don't know what to do
with them all. Were talking thou-
sands of hours of Billy Joel,
Madonna, U2 and the Beatles, to
name a few. Throwing them out
seems like a downright crime. Today
I have everything on my MP3 player
so the tapes just sit in the closet tak-
ing up space. I can't bring myself to
toss them since I spent most of my
allowance on them growing up. My
parents are lucky. They saved all
their 45 records from their youth and
put them in a gorgeous jukebox that
they can still listed to every day.
But my generation, the one
with cassette tapes, is left
out in the cold. Is there
anything I can do with them \f
or are they destined to sit in
my closet forever?

Carry: It seems like some things
become classics and others just become
obsolete. The hard part is trying to
guess which ones will be the classics.
Cash: Take vinyl records, for exam-
ple. Like you stated, the 45 rpm records


*UYS \



Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


d)207 Tne Ciavyrva uuysO


of the 50's and 60's became nostalgic,
synonymous with the "Do-Wop" era.
However, most of my records from the
70's barely get an offer at a yard sale. .
Carry: Neither do my 8-track tapes!
Cash: It's not just music mediums
though. All kinds of electronics and
related items are becoming obsolete.
Videotapes are being replaced by
DVD's. Most video rental stores barely
have a VHS tape on the shelf.
Carry: And when it comes to TV's,
everyone today wants the high defini-
tion sets, LCD or plasma screens.
Cash: However, that doesn't mean
there isn't a market for your cassette
tape collection. You may be surprised


to learn that there is a collector for prac-
tically everything, even those items
bought with your hard earned
allowance.
Carry: If your tapes are originals and
not copies, then take out a short ad in
your newspaper. There may be some-
one right in your area who collects
them. You could be surprised at the
number of calls you get.
Cash: Fortunately, cassette tapes are
not completely obsolete just yet. Most
used cars are still equipped with a cas-
sette deck to play your collection.
Carry: And remember the bright
side. At least you didn't spend your
allowance on Betamax videos.

Speeding Along
Before CD's and MP3's, vinyl records
were all the craze. But why did they come
in three speeds: 78 rpm, 33-1/3 rpm and
45 rpm? While some of the reasoning
had to do with sound'quality, most was a
result of marketing. The 78's were the
standard up until the late 1940's when
Columbia mass released their 33-1/3 rpm
"Microgroove" system. The 12" record
held more music and became the new
standard. However, at the same time
RCA developed the 45 rpm record that
was only 7" in diameter. It became the
popular choice for releasing single songs.
Staying Hip
With the advances in technology, most
of us need a technical dictionary to keep
up with the lingo. Previous generations
used terms such as "record" or "cassette"
to describe the medium. Today, the lingo
is far more encrypted using abbreviations
like CD, PVD or MP3. While most of
us recognize the term "Compact Disk"
(CD), fewer know the term "Digital
Versatile Disk", formerly "Digital Video
Disc" (DVD). And for those not aware,
MP3 stands for MPEG- 1 (Moving
Picture Experts Group) Audio Layer 3.
It's a good thing they shortened that!

Lessons Learned
My co-worker and I are music
teachers and were traveling to a con-
ference together recently. About an
hour into the trip, I pulled out a map
and completely unfolded it across the I
dashboard. Its size was quite obnox-
ious.
After finding our route, I then strug-
gled to refold it back to its original
shape. After several failed attempts, I
was convinced it wasn't possible. As
my desperation grew, my co-worker
finally pulled the car over to help. He
grabbed the map and like magic fold-
ed it perfectly into its original form.
"That's amazing" I told him, "How
did you do that?"
"I've had a lot of practice," he
smiled at me. "As a kid I played the
accordion!"

Idol finalist:


'Idol' is I:
By Rachel Kubicek
CNHI News Service

As far as touring goes, it's
the 50 minutes that he spends on
stage each night that Chris
Daughtry looks forward to the
most.
"Basically, it's what the day
builds up to," he said. "We go to a
different city every day. We don't
get to see much of the scenery;
when the bus is moving, we are
sleeping."
Touring has its downside, he
said from being away from his
family for too long to the bad
eating habits he's developed, such
as settling for a slice of pizza
before getting to bed at 2 a.m.
Since finishing fourth during the
last season of "American Idol,"
Daughtry has shown plenty of
staying power.
His debut album, "Daughtry,"
has gone double platinum and is
still perched at No. 4 on
Billboard's Top 200 chart. And
like the title of his hit single, "It's
Not Over," Daughtry says he
hopes to have a long career in the
music industry. He envisions a
time when he can use his talents to
help other emerging artists.
"I definitely want to be
doing this for a long time,"
he said. "As a songwriter, I
would love to be able to
write for and co-produce
new bands."
During a recent phone
interview, he talked about
recording his debut album
and life after "Idol."

Q. From one year ago to
today, how has your life
changed?
A. "One hundred percent.
It's like a total 180. Nothing ,
is like it was. I used to get

'It's not over'


behindd him, but Chris Daughtry is far from idle


up at 6 something in the morning,
go to work, come home, do my
kids' homework with them, go to
bed; and now I wake up at noon or
later, I'm on a bus and I'm not
home. I go from city to city every
night. Nothing is the same
anymore. The only thing that is
still the same is that I still have
my wife and my kids. This is what
I've always wanted to do so I'm
not complaining at all. With any
job, there is something that sucks
about it. The thing about this is
that I don't get to see my wife and
kids. This is the first tour, so this
is how it has to be as far as touring
conditions go."

Q. What was it like when "It's
Not Over" hit No. 1?
A. "It's hard to explain and kind
of surreal. It's just an honor to be
recognized like that. It's No. 1, but
what does that mean? It's kind of
hard to wrap your head around it
and understand. I am definitely
grateful. Everything happened so
fast so it's hard to really deal. We
try to give that back everywhere
we go."

Q. How would you describe the


experience of making the album?
A. "It was a huge learning
experience for me, seeing other
people's point of view on how
they write songs and picking their
brain. It was all good for me."

Q. How did you choose the
members of your band?
A. "We held auditions in L.A. I
knew my drummer from
Greensboro (North Carolina) and
told him to come out and audition.
We had open auditions, and we
ended up with not only good
players but guys that I want to
hang out with. We are like
brothers. We do all get along."

Q. How much did you contribute
as a songwriter?
A. "Quite a bit. I wrote.or co-
wrote every song except for two of
them. My voice is heard on all
except the two I didn't write."

Q. What do you do during your
free time?
A. "We had a day off and went
to see '300' as a band and that was
cool. We have a day off every two
to three days. We usually write."


Q. Has anything strange or "
unusual happened while on tour?
A. Yes. I was walking from the
bus to the hotel and this lady tried
to give me her keys to park her
car. That really sticks out. I've
been chased to an elevator by
people waiting in a lobby. It's
different everywhere. There are
people who camp outside our
hotels now and then. How they
know we are staying there I don't
know, but a tour bus doesn't help.
It doesn't bother me.

Q. Other than music, what is
important to you?
A. "My wife, my kids and their
well being. Obviously my friends
and family. I think me and my
wife are closer than ever now that
we don't see each other. I try to
talk to my kids as much as I can
through the week. We are doing

week. This isn't the type of tour
for kids to be there. Maybe on the
next tour when we are in bigger
rooms they can be there. We are
doing great."

BYRON CENTER,
Mich. The fine line
between life and death is a
place that Jim Dreyer
knows all too well.
A 43-year-old ultra
marathon swimmer and
Ironman tri-athlete known
as "The Shark," Dreyer
was rushed to the
emergency room, where his
heart stopped briefly after
emerging from the Straits
of Mackinac last August.
His body was literally
running on empty after
forgoing his better
judgment and pressing on
without adequate nutrition.
"They were cutting the
suit off me and getting
ready with the
defibrillator," said Dreyer,
who holds more than a
dozen world records in
speed, distance and
endurance swimming on
the Great Lakes. "One of
my last thoughts while I
was still conscious was, 'I
may have done it this
time'."
The event was the "Dire
Straits 2006" and Dreyer, -
who swims for Big
Brothers, Big Sisters
charity, was attempting 31
consecutive crossings of
the Straits of Mackinac -
a cold channel plagued by
a strong current -
swimming for over 125
miles without an escort
boat. Unfortunately, he had
to bag it after 40 miles,
and that nearly killed him.
"I didn't have a full
blown cardiac issue until
they got me to the
emergency room, which is
good. If you're going to
have one, that's where you
want have it," he said.
"But, yeah, the heart did
stop there for a short
period."
Battling shoulder pain
and nausea, Dreyer
focused on a 40 mile
finish, figuring "a nice
round even number might
bring in some more
pledges for BBBS, and I
was at 37 miles."
He needed food, but
"what I didn't stop to think
about was, I could swim
another three miles
without nutrition, but I
needed that nutrition to
survive when I got out of
the water,"'he said. "So,
when I got out of the water
I had nothing left."
Quite a story for a guy
who's first swimming
lesson was 10 years ago. In
fact, Dreyer harbored a
deep-seeded fear of the
water since nearly
drowning as a child. He
grew up to be an adept
runner, biker, cross-
country skiier, martial


artist and semi-pro baseball player.
Swimming, however, scared him.
But fear is a strange thing. It can
paralyze some and motivate others.
Dreyer began taking lessons in 1996 and
two years later had set his first Lake
Michigan distance record, becoming the
first to swim a mid-lake crossing between
Wisconsin and Michigan. It was a
grueling 41-hour, 65 mile journey
equivalent to swimming three times the
width of the English Channel. And it was
only the beginning.
In 1999, he set a new speed and
distance record for Lake Huron,
swimming a 40-hour, 52 mile crossing. In
July 2000, he took on Lake Erie, setting a
new solo duathlon world distance record
as the first to finish a double-digit
mileage swim (30 miles across Lake
Erie), and run a full 26-mile marathon,
through mostly beach sand, in a
continuous 27-hour affair.
And it gets better. The very next month,
in August 2000, he set a solo triathlon
world distance record on Lake Ontario -
a 212- mile, 48-hour, running, biking and
swimming event.
He twice set the Lake Superior distance

record in 2001 and 2002, in four attempts
to cross "Gitche Gumee." Then came the
massive, month-long, 18-stage journey in
2003 across the length of Lake Michigan
- over 400 miles from Mackinaw City
to Michigan City, Ind., while pulling the
weight of his supplies in a kayak.
"It kind of set a whole new standard,"
Dreyer said. "It was a whole new type of
athlete. That's probably my big niche
there."
But he may best be remembered for the
.solo swim across Lake Superior in 2005.
No boat. No rescue. Just Jim and a
dinghy with supplies through a,
thunderstorm with 15 foot waves and 60
mile winds the same wind and wave
ferocity that sank the Edmund Fitzgerald
- and a failed navigation system, to
boot.
Those are the situations when you
experience real, visceral fear, Dreyer said.
"It occurs to you, "My God this would
be anybody's worst nightmare,' especially
me, who had a lifelong fear of water," he
said. "How did I get from there to here?"
At these times, his initial drowning
experience from childhood comes rushing
back.
"It seems pretty surreal," he said. "It's


like the penidulum has swung completely
the opposite direction this fear of the
open water was my life's greatest fear and
now the open water is the playing field
for my professional athletic career. It's
quite a stretch."
For those living on the edge, a practical
knowledge of fear is a healthy thing,
Dreyer said. Like anything else, dealing
with it becomes easier as times goes on.
People ask him if he's insane and he
replies that he knows he's not because he
still feels the bite of fear he's just
learned to control it.
But there's a danger inherent in
becoming that intimate with your fear
threshold. Sometimes, you may not
realize when you're crossing an unseen
line. He said doctors have told him
several times, 'you were really close this
time.'
"It becomes familiar to you, but you
think, well, I've been here before and I
was fine, I can push it a little furtherr" he
said. "That's where it does get dangerous.
We (a close friend Dreyer trains with)
both realize there could come the time
when we push it just a little bit too far."

City (Mich.) Record-Eagle.
