Jena Satellite



Tower Open



For Business
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
For sometime no,. residents and visitors to the Jena/Steinhatchee
area have been wondering just whatthe large satellite tower, located
on the Jena side, at the bridge, will be housing. Hopes of a cellular
service are on the minds of everyone and according to tower owners,
Patriots, there is plenty\ of room for such service. However the first to
sign up for the valuable space is the United States Coast Guard.
According to a Coast Guard spokesperson, the Jena tower will be
fitting right into their plans for a new communications system,
Rescue 21. This service will provide communications for its search-
and-rescue missions as well as an infrastructure used for homeland
security and law enforcement.
The $600 million dollar project will be used for the 95,000 miles
of coastline in the continental United States. Alaska, Hawaii, Guam,
and Puerto Rico that the Coast Guard is responsible for. It is
estimated that more than 7"S million boaters use these waterways
Smith et eryone becoming a potential emergency or threat.
The new system dill replace the existing National Distress
System, a VHS-FMNI radio network built in the 1970s that has limited
compatibility with other systems, no ability for secure
communications and significant coverage gaps.

The newest piece of real estate in Jena is a 350-foot satellite tower
ready for rental.

County Commissioners Hear Variety of Matters
By Mike Moore Staff, Writer
It took most of the day last Thursday, and covered everything from good health to EMS reports to
geese. It was the twice-monthly Dixie County Commission meeting.
And of course there was the continuing Ballad of Mud Bogging. Commissioners heard two items
that may end up in court under the label
"nuisance," and one of them was the mud
bogging issue. *4 -
There continues to be a discussion about .
whether the mud bogging activity can continue at
Ocean Pond. Residents say the noise, trash, and
other problems make it an unpleasant aspect of
life in their area. Participants and spectators say it
has been going on for a long time and is a fun
"Opinions are important, activity.weekend
but we will go by what the a County.
law says"...County Attorney Joey .
Commissioner Marcus Lander said
Hays, speaking about the that even if the
mud bogging issue activity is
legal,
neighbors may request an emergency injunction
to stop the bogging while the court considers the
situation. Criminal charges are also a possibility if
the bogging is found to be something which is
ordered to be halted and it continues.
Another discussion regarding citizens,
neighbors, and nuisances came about when two
local residents asked what could be done

regarding an animal situation. They stated that a
family whose property is near theirs keeps a large
number of animals withiri a small. space. The
animals, including geese, are very noisy and
create an unpleasant odor according to those Edwin McCook of the SRWMD gives
raising the questions. As in the mud bogging Commission Chairman Marcus Hays a check for
issue, the residents were told they could petition $21,816 as part of their "In Lieu of Taxes"
the court for help in the situation. Dixie ,County program.
has no leash law or restrictions on how many animals or what types may be kept.
In other matters, the board gladly accepted a check for $21,816.20 from Edwin McCook, Public
Use Coordinator of Suwannee River Water Management District. This was payment in lieu of
taxes.
Slande Celeste of the Dixie County Health Department discussed the Step Up Florida Program, a:
statewide effort to improve health.
Emergency Services Director Chad Reed gave a thorough report on the county's EMS services
Veterans Service Officer Jerry Prater discussed the proposed increase in survivors' benefits for
servicemen and women killed in combat. /

It's called "Getting the Vapors"
In Victorian times, ladies of proper upbringing would often
"get the vapors" when sufficiently shocked by the boorish behavior
of men who were lacking in the social graces and would do
"offensive" things like mention the name of a divorced woman or
refer to the mating habits of their livestock in mixed company.
Getting the vapors was often accompanied by a fainting spell, and
every well-appointed home had a "fainting couch" in the drawing
room just to accommodate this condition. Of course, that sort of
thing doesn't happen anymore.. .or does it?
: When Harvard University President Lawrence Summers
addressed a gathering of his peers recently, he remarked that men
seemed to do better than women in math and the sciences.
Summers' remark amounted to a well-documented fact, as reflected
in) the respective numbers of men and women occupied in the
higher echelons of science and math; however that wasn't good
enough for MIT biologist Nancy Hopkins, who stormed out of the
meeting amid comments to the effect that Summers' observations
made her nauseous.
Ms. Hopkins' reaction to a statistical reality of which any
scientist should be well aware might be termed a 21st century
Version of "getting the vapors." Perhaps Harvard won't be
installing fainting couches in their lecture halls, but they might
consider handing out barf bags prior to lectures on subjects which
could challenge the fanciful notions of the politically correct crowd.
: Unfortunately, Lawrence Summers' reaction to Ms. Hopkins'
plost-adolescent behavior was exactly what feminists and assorted
6ther liberal activists wanted. He immediately went into grovel
mode, and would no doubt be wearing sack cloth and sitting in
ashes at this very moment, were it not for the association of that
practice with Old Testament religious teachings.
One would think that the president of Harvard University would
realize that the institution over which he (at least ceremonially)
presides is not a part of the real world. As America's oldest
institution of higher learning, one might expect Harvard to have
gotten in touch with reality by this time; but it seems as though the
university is instead getting increasingly further out of touch. This
is why Harvard is "embarrassed" by its president citing a relevant
and well-established--but politically-incorrect--fact while address-
iig a group of scholars. The only thing that could have been more
humiliating, I suppose, would have been for him to have mentioned
the fact that Harvard was originally established for the purpose of
training Christian clergymen.
SWhile we're getting the vapors, and likewise apologizing for
having cited a factual, but unfortunate, statistical reality, I'm
Wondering who would have taken offense at the following
statement: "I want the state gone: transform the situation to U.S.
out of North America. U.S. off the planet. Out of existence
altogether."
SWould this anti-American diatribe have made professor Nancy
Hopkins nauseous, given her the vapors, or caused her any
psychological discomfort whatsoever? Obviously, we can't know
for certain; however I suspect that it wouldn't, the reason being
that it was made by a tenured professor at another university who


seems to have a similarly warped outlook on life's little realities.
Ward Churchill made the forgoing, and other inflammatory,
anti-American statements in his capacity as a professor at the
University of Colorado, where he is paid an annual salary of
$96,000 to pervert the minds of the young people who attend his
classes. He owes the very fact that he is allowed to do this without
being arrested to the government he disparages in his classroom
lectures.
However, please do not remind Professor Churchill of this in-
cbnvenient fact, as it might give him the vapors. We wouldn't want
that to happen, now, would we?


I've grown to realize the joy that comes from little
victories is preferable to the fun that comes from
ease and the pursuit of pleasure.

Valentine's Day
Next Monday is Valentine's Day. You did remember to plan a
nice meal or order flowers or get a card or buy candy didn't you?
Of course. It is one of those easier-to-remember days. I can never
quite figure out when Easter is to be celebrated or who decides
about Thanksgiving. But some of the "special days" have been
made not so hard for me-December 25, February 14, and January
1.
Valentine's Day is one of those special events when we can
take a little bit of extra time and effort to show the one we love,
how much we love him or her. It was not made just to keep candy
makers, florists, and restaurant-owners happy, although I'm sure it
does accomplish this, too.
How did we get this holiday? Careful checking shows it is
named after a man named Valentine. People often do research as to
the history of holidays, and as this year moves along, we will learn
about other special days.
There are supposed to be three different men in history known
as Valentine or Valentinus, and all died violent deaths.
One story concerns ancient Rome. It seems that the Emperor
Claudius II decided single men made better soldiers. He outlawed
marriage for young men. A local clergyman, Valentine, continued
to perform marriage ceremonies in secret. He also was supposed
to have helped Christians escape harsh Roman prisons where they
were often beaten and tortured. The emperor ordered Valentine
executed.
According to legend, Valentine sent the first "valentine"
greeting himself. While in prison, he fell in love with a young lady,
perhaps his jailor's daughter who had visited him during his
confinement. He wrote her a letter, signing it "from your
Valentine."
This is a nice story, but our investigators have not found
anyone to verify it. The tales of Paul Bunyan and Johnny
Appleseed are nice, too, but may also be legends;
Anyway, on February 14, we are supposed to give special
thoughts and expressions of love to our wives, husbands, fiances,
and sweethearts.
Of course this is like Love Your County Week or Be Kind to
Children Day or Don't Hurt Small Animals Day. In other words,
we should always be kind and loving and give extraordinary
treatment to that special someone.
A well-known Christian writer has identified what he calls
"love languages." He points out that some people respond to words
of kindness, while others appreciate deeds, and still others, hear the
language of gifts. We are all different.
I think the man is correct. In the world of sports, we see some
players respond when the coach yells and goes nuts. Others need to
have someone logically explain what to do.
In business, some do well when spoken to one way, and others
need a different type of challenge.
In our marriages and other personal relationships, we should
find out what our special someone likes and needs, and seek to
please them. If they enjoy a small candle, candy, or other little gift,
then get it. Is it cleaning the garage or making sure the dishes are
done, or hanging the picture? Get on with it. Is it saying tender
things or leaving a loving note? Do it.
"Husbands, love your wives, 'just as Christ also loved the
church and gave Himself for her..."
I am the most fortunate of men. I am married to an incredible
person. She continually amazes me. I want to make all of the right
efforts to please her.
I love you, Tanya.

Editorial
Last Tuesday a jury panel was subpoenaed for the Circuit Court
in and for Dixie County Florida. The number of the jurors
subpoenaed who complied with their summonses was abysmal.
Rounding numbers, approximately one hundred jurors were
subpoenaed; thirty were legally excused.. Of the seventy that
should have appeared, only thirty-one showed up. Twenty-one
jurors were seated. Had one case not settled, there would not have
been enough jurors to proceed with the criminal docket.
A trial by jury has always been important in our culture. In
1776 our forefathers signed our Declaration of Independence. In
that document they pointed out that one of the abuses they were
suffering was that they were being deprived "in many cases, of the
benefits of Trial by Jury." Thus, the absence of a trial by jury is
one of the factors that led them to the Revolutionary War.
Shortly after the thirteen states ratified the Constitution of the
United States, they ratified our Bill of Rights. Amendments Six
and Seven protect our important right to a jury trial. Similarly, our
Florida Constitution has always protected our right to trial by a
jury.
In Florida the Department of Motor Vehicles provides the
various Clerks of Court with the Jury Lists from which to impanel
jury. Names are randomly drawn from those lists. After being
drawn the jurors are summonsed to appear. Note a Summons is a
command, not an invitation. Upon being commanded to serve, we
are expected to be there.
Often jury duty is inconvenient. Nevertheless, the law provides
only a very few reasons for excusing jury service. The most
significant are: 1.) Persons over the age of seventy years, 2.)
Expectant mother or a parent who is not employed full time and
who has custody of a child under 6 years of age, 3.) A person who
is responsible for the care of a person who is incapable of caring
for himself or herself because of mental incapacity, 4.) Health
reasons which make jury service impossible, 5.) Prior jury service
in the county within the previous year, 6.) Full-time federal, state,
or local law enforcement officer or such entities' investigative
personnel, but not Correctional employees.
Note those persons are not automatically excused; they must
request to be excused. When a person receives a Summons the
instructions for being excused will be included.
In order to preserve our rights to jury trials we must have
jurors. Florida Statutes provide that any person who is duly
summoned to attend as a juror in any court and who fails to attend
without any sufficient excuse shall pay a fine not to exceed $100,
and, in addition, such failure may be considered a contempt of
court. The fine and contempt proceedings may be avoided by being
properly excused or by appearing at the appropriate time.
Judge Koberlien had this to say, Jury trials are the backbone
of our judicial system. Our Jury Trial system is what separates our
systems from the rest of the world."


We should protect our
willingly when summonsed.

A New Book Offers A
Prescription For Health
(NAPS)-Increasing the
amount of nutrients in your
diet can be a key to rapid
weight loss.. That's the
premise behind a new book
that offers a program for liv-
ing a healthier lifd.

A new book claims that
when the ratio of nutrients
to calories in a diet is high,
people lose weight.

The program is based on a
simple formula: When the
ratio of nutrients to calories
in the food you eat is high, fat
melts away. The more nutri-
ent-dense the food you con-
sume, the more you will be
satisfied with fewer calories,
and the less you will crave fat
and high-calorie foods.
The book, "Eat To Live" by
Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
(Little, Brown, $14.95), con-
tains what's described as a
Healthy, effective and scien-
tifically proven six-week plan
for shedding a radical amount
of weight quickly.
These sentiments are
echoed on a Web site, www.
drfuhrman.com, where visi-
tors can get information on
losing weight, reversing dis-
ease and creating a healthier
lifestyle.
The book is available where
books are sold and through
the Web site.

"A UTOLAB"
Continued from page 1


While students work at their own pace the AutoLab system
tracks and grades their progress. The teacher is able to monitor
each'student, as the lab is networked to a main computer controlled
by the instructor. The system can also be connected to the Internet


Pictured above Clint Burnette, II shows Superintendent Dennis
Bennett how to operate the new AutoLab learning system works.

where there is an unlimited amount of information and resource
sites. The instructor also receives automatic competency based
reporting on each student, giving him a better understanding of
students' weaknesses and enables him to concentrate on those
weaknesses while other students continue their studies.
-.In addition to the computer-based software each module comes
'n i[h real vehicle demonstration systems used by the instructor to
help .explain complex systems, such as the braking system. There
are, ,also computer-based simulator panels that help with
troubleshooting methods in a safe environment.
-Another benefit to this new AutoLab system is that it will bring
the. automotive program at DCHS closer to being National
Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) certified.
Thi- certification will be mandatory by the year 2007.

The Boyd Report
"Keeping Our Promise to Retirees"
By Congressman Allen Boyd
Social Security provides income support to 46 million retirees,
including 111,000 in the 2nd district of Florida, as well as
survivors, dependents and disabled workers. Keeping this vital
program intact, for those who depend on it today and in the future,
is -a, commitment I will not ignore. In his State of the Union
Address, President Bush effectively laid out the long term
problems facing Social Security, and I commend him for tackling
the crucial task of reforming the Social Security system. I have
cosponsored the Bipartisan Retirement Security Act with Jim
Kolbe (R-AZ) to preserve and sustain the Social Security program,
and, I am pleased the President has embraced many of the
principles of our plan.
,While modernizing Social Security is absolutely essential, no
plan should affect current retirees or those nearing retirement. My
plan, the Bipartisan Retirement Security Act, does not affect
anyone 55 years of age or older. The Social Security program
needs to be reformed so that future generations can enjoy the
be-nefits of this invaluable program, and therefore, only future
generations should feel the effects of reform. We have a moral
obligation to protect the benefits that have been promised to
current retirees, and our plan recognizes this responsibility and
fulfills. hins prom ise .. .. ,-, .... .
,,Let me tell you what our plan does not do:
O* ur plan does not reduce benefits for anyone near
retirement (55 or older) or current retirees.'
.,* Our plan does not increase payroll tax rates.
Although we cannot ignore that structural reform of the Social
Security program is necessary, any changes to Social Security must
preserve the full benefits promised to current retirees and near-
retirees. The Kolbe-Boyd plan does not make any changes to the
benefits promised to current retirees or those nearing the retirement
age.: .
,.,,Now letme tell you what our plan does do:
Our plan preserves existing benefits for current and near-
retirees.
Our plan increases the rate of return for all workers by
establishing the opportunity for all Americans to create wealth.
Our plan strengthens the government safety net for low-
income workers through a minimum benefit provision.
Our plan provides individuals with ownership of and
control over part of their retirement assets-including the freedom to
invest in safe, risk-free Treasury securities.
I will not support any plan that alters the benefits that current
retirees expect and are entitled to. The Kolbe-Boyd Bipartisan
R tirement Security Act is a plan to ensure that tomorrow's retirees
have a secure future, and in no way affects current retirees or those
nnring retirement. Current retirees and those nearing retirement
slhuld be guaranteed every penny of their promised Social
Security benefits. They paid for their benefits and they should
receive them. Current retirees and near-retirees have spent a
litime putting a part of their income into Social Security with the
beief that this money will be returned to them upon retirement.
W, must honor this commitment.

Dixie students are fortunate to have the support of the
Vocational Director Anne Stanley who works hard to go out there
and secure grants, enabling the school system to purchase the tools
necessary to properly train students. Stanley was able to secure
$39,314 from two Carl D. Perkins grants, one for secondary
education and the other for "Rural and Sparsely Populated"
funding. These funds are federal money but come through the state.
An additional $2,500 of Tech Prep money was used for installation
and instructor training.
Dixie's Superintendent, Dennis Bennett is also a champion for
the vocational school. His son, Glenn began his career at DCHS
under the instruction of Mr. Steve Langford, or better known by his
students as "Lang". After graduating from DCHS he continued his
education at University Tech in Texas. He currently works for
UPS in Tallahassee where he maintains a fleet of their trucks. Mr.,
Bennett took a tour of the new modules system last week and was
truly impressed.
"There is such a need for automotive technicians these days,"
Bennett stated. "Like nurses, there is a shortage of qualified
technicians, leaving the field wide open," he added. Bennett also
noted that starting salaries begin at $40,000.00 a year. "This is a
,great opportunity for students at DCHS to take advantage of a
learning resource that could potentially make him or her a very
comfortable living."
For several years Dixie County High School has had an
articulation agreement with Santa Fe Community College who act
as a "flow over" if you will from their high school training to their
post-secondary training. Santa Fe themselves have a state of the art
automotive program and have encouraged Dixie to continue
providing a stepping stone for their students.
Langford stated that students would start using the modules
beginning of the fifth six weeks. This summer he will be attending
a special training workshop in Atlanta provided by the LJ
Technical Systems Company who produce the AutoLab modules.
Currently DCHS has the braking and electronic modules, or
halfway to having the complete lab. Stanley has already begun her
search for more funding in order for the DCHS lab to be cofnplete
by the 2007 NATEF certification deadline.

Crist Hails New Supreme Court
Ruling on Sexual Predators Act
Attorney General Charlie Crist hailed Thursday's Florida
Supreme, Court decision upholding the constitutionality of the
Florida Sexual Predators Act, which requires sexual predators to
comply with various registration and notification requirements
when they are released from prison.
The statute, Florida's version of "Megan's Law," had been
the subject of conflicting appeals and court, decisions prior to the
Supreme .Court ruling, which embraced legal arguments put forth
by the Attorney General's Office of the Solicitor General.
"This decision by the Florida Supreme Court allows the
state to better protect its most vulnerable citizens," said Crist.
"Individuals can choose not to become sexual predators and avoid
being placed on a list of offenders, which is more choice than they
give the innocent victims of their vile actions."
Under the statute, the only determination to be made by a
trial judge before designating a person a "sexual predator" is
whether the defendant had the prerequisite criminal conviction.
The Supreme Court resolved two challenges to the statute brought
by defendants Everett Milks and Ferman Espindola. The 3rd
District Court of Appeal (based in Miami) ruled in favor of
Espindola in January 2003, concluding that the law is
unconstitutional because it fails to give judges dl-.ciih:'n in
determining whether an offender poses an actuall threat to the
community. However, four months later the 2nd District Court of
Appeal (based in Lakeland) ruled against Milks by. declaring that
the statute does not violate procedural due process or constitutional
principals of separation of powers.
The Supreme Court resolved the conflict between the two
intermediate courts. Affirming the constitutionality of the statute,
the justices wrote; "The Act is an exercise of the public-policy-
making function of the Legislature to declare that persons who
have been convicted of certain offenses should be designated as
'sexual predators' and should be subjected to the registration,
public-notification, and other requirements of the Act."


Most folks are about as
happy as they make up
their minds to be.

SIGNING
Continued from page 1


seniors can officially agree to offers to play college football in exchange for school expenses. The
signing ceremony took place in the school library, with family, friends, coaches, administrators, and
even a TV cameraman from Gainesville on hand.
Signing with Bethune Cookman was Justin Cotman and with Marshall, Paul O'Hara.
Cotman became one of 29 players landed by the BC Wildcats on the first day of signing. His
scholarship is for both athletics and academics. The defensive end played four years of football for the
Bears, three on the varsity and one at the JV level.
O'Hara will' take his talents to Huntington, West Virginia, to play for the Thundering Herd of
Marshall. He joins 18 other players now signed by the Herd. The running pack gained over 4,500 yards
during his prep career. He was twice named All State, once as a running back and once as a defensive
back, and was Player of the Year as a junior.

"TO WER"

Using digital selective calling, Rescue 21 will enable the Coast Guard to better pinpoint distress
calls and will increase the number of radio channels from one to six and greatly reduces "dead zones"
from 14 percent to 2 percent. Coast Guard cutters and boats will also be able to be tracked more
efficiently allowing them to send out the closest boats to a distress call, reducing rescue times.
Protecting the environment is also of great concern to the Coast Guard. With this in mind they have"
been actively seeking out existing towers to link up to and minimizing impact on wetland and coastal
habitats.
The Rescue 21 project is a massive undertaking and Coast Guard officials have been careful not to
hurry the process, making sure they dot all their "I's" and cross all their "T's" before bringing it online.
The lease agreement between Patriot and the Coast Guard brings them much closer completion and to
a new, improved service.
Ken Staton, President of Patriots, stated they were pleased to be able to provide the space for the
Coast Guard and the new system. He also noted that the tower's construction was completed as of this
past week and ready for rental. Staton noted that he has heard of the need for a better cellular service
in the area and will be marketing the tower for such service. However, he also stated that the best
marketing tool is customer driven. "Folks need to put a 'bug' in the ears of their cellular providers,"
Staton stated. "The more they heard from you, the better your chances of getting through to them," he
added.
With the tower in place and pressure on the cellular providers maybe the phrase, "Can you hear me
now," can be answered with a "yes" for Jena and Steinhatchee' residents.


Congressman Boyd Hosts Forum
on the Future of Rural Telecom
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida), Co-Chairman of
the Congressional Rural Caucus (CRC), recently hosted a forum
to discuss the future of rural telecommunications and the Universal
Service Fund (USF) in rural America. This is the second in a
series of forums hosted by the CRC to address the challenges
telecommunications carriers face in providing affordable, modem
services to rural customers. These issues are especially important
as Congress prepares to re-examine the 1996 Telecommunications
Act.
"Rural America cannot be left behind when it comes to national.
policy decisions, and this forum is a step to ensure that rural
America has a voice in developing telecommunications laws for
the new millennium," said Congressman Boyd. "We must have
fair prices for high-speed Internet, not only to retain and attract
good jobs in rural America, but also to improve the overall quality
of our lives."
The Universal Service Fund is a federal subsidy program that
improves access to telephone services and helps provide resources
to rural areas that have previously only been available to larger
cities. The USF affects such services as medical facilities, schools
and libraries.
Forum panelists included Fred McCallum of BellSouth, which'
services North Florida, as well as other rural telecommunications
industry representatives.
"Programs funded by the Universal Service Fund are very
important to rural communities," Congressman Boyd stated.
"When we re-examine the Telecommunications Act in the 109th
Congress, reforms related to keeping the USF intact must be
addressed. This outstanding set of panel members offered their
insight to help us do this. I look forward to working with my
colleagues in the year ahead to ensure that rural America is better
served by our nation's telecommunications laws."

they go." Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

Downings To Celebrate 10th

Wedding Anniversary


David & Carla Downing
Happy Valentine's Day, David. Thank you for making my
dreams come true...
David and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary by
trpyiYng toafavwaPi. \"e spent 7 days and night on the beautiful
islagof Oahu. We -witnessed.,beautiful rainbows, .sunrises, and
sunsets. We toured the island and walked the beaches, letting and
sand fill my senses. Proof of our Mighty God was vivid
everywhere. The pearl adventure was so cool. Thank you for my
beautiful pearl ring and necklace. We had some of the greatest
food and saw some great entertainment; the "Hawaiian Elvis" was
sensational. We went to a Hawaiian church service that blew me
away. The choir director dressed Hawaiian style and did the
Hawaiian sign language during the song service.
This was the one trip I have always dreamed of Thank you,
David. I love you for eternity.


Love,
Carla

Faith Baptist Church News
We welcomed a beautiful, sunny day today as we worshiped
God at Faith. After all the rain, wind and cold, it was a blessing
just to have a warm sunny day. Bro. Jackie did his usual fine job of
delivering the message God had laid on his heart this morning and
Bro. Bobby filled in for him tonight doing an equally good job.
The special music was wonderful as usual and we had a large
crowd with several visitors stopping in. We thank God for His
blessings.
The Easter Brothers were here in concert Friday night and what
a glorious blessing they were. We are always happy to have them.
The church was full and if you missed it, you truly missed a
blessing. They plan to come back next year and maybe you can
join us then.
We urge you to pray for the sick and bereaved in our
community. So many of our folks are out sick and need our
prayers.
Wednesday night will be our regular monthly business
meeting. As members it's our duty to come out and share in the
handling of God's business.
We want to welcome our visitors and let them know how
special they are to us. We pray that you received a blessing and
will come again real soon. If you're looking for a church home, we
invite you to share ours and if you're just passing through, we
invite you to stop in anytime.
We have Sunday School at 9:45 am. We have some
outstanding teachers and classes for all ages.
We at Faith love you and wish you a wonderful, happy and
healthy week.

Behold The Tabernacle of God, ..
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say Hear ye the
Word of the Lord... Malachi, chapter 4(verse 1) "For behold, the day
cometh that shall bum as an oven." (verse 2) "But unto you that fear my
name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;
"(verse 5) "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
of the GREAT and DREADFUL day of the Lord: "Glory to God! This is a
GREAT day.. a day of His power when all our enemies are put under out
feet." But at the same time it is a DREADFUL day to someone. Not to the
children of the Day, but to the children of the Night who had not put on
the whole armour of God because they were expecting to "fly away", and
did not think they would have to "stand" in that day. I the Day of the Lord,
say Oh friend, it is time that we SLOW THE TRUMPET IN ZION. Joel
2:1-11. "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion and sound an alarm in my holy
mountain: "(You see, friends, it is God's people who need to be alerted in
this hour, they who are sleeping need to be awakened). "Let all the
inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF THE LORD COMETH,
for it is night at hand. A day of DARKNESS and of GLOOMINESS, a day
of CLOUDS and of THICK DARKNESS AS THE MORNING SPREAD
UPON THE MOUNTAINS: A GREAT PEOPLE AND A STRONG!" I
the Day of the Lord say at the very same time that darkness and
gloominess spreads over the land during this Day of the Lord, to those
who are children of the Day there is a great and glorious SUNRISE. Isa
28:2 say, "The Lord hath a MIGHTY AND A STRONG ONE". and we
find this to be His Body in the earth. Daniel said that" they that do know
their God shall be STRONG and do exploits." And here Joel sees them
coming forth at the dawn of the Day of the Lord, a day of darkness and
terror for the godless and unbelieving people of this world. Joel 2:11" the
"Day of the Lord is GREAT and VERY TERRIBLE: and who can abide
it?" Great for the children of the Day and very terrible for the children of
the Night. Keep up with me continued next week.

Abundant Life and Living
Psalm 127:3 (KJV) states "Lo, Children are an heritage of the
Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward."
Life is a miraculous adventure. As. we begin another year on
the delightful journey of life, let's stay focused on our children,
bless them, love them, hug, kiss and protect ,
them, pray for them, train them to love, M
honor, and respect, themselves. Teach them -
responsibility, truth, honesty and integrity.
Bless them, listen to them, hear their cries
for help and security. They are depending on
us to parent them.
Some of us might say, "I don't have any
children, they don't belong to me."
Every child in your community, village
or town is your child. Yes, we sometime Lucille Stockton
have to discipline with tough love, but only because we sincerely
love them.
God entrusted them to us for parental care, He didn't entrust us
to them. Although we do learn a lot from them, they depend on us
for guidance.
'I sometime hear the expression, I can't give time to them
because they are too bad. I disagree. All children are born very
good and they learn what they are after birth. Help save our
children, Your effort might save your life, my life, or their lives.

The Word Made


Flesh
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say miracles alone
lead a person to acknowledgment,
worship, and piety, they act from
the natural person and not from
the spiritual. Miracles impart faith
through an external way not an
internal way, thus from the world
and not from heaven. The Lord
enters into one through no other
than an internal way, which is
through the Word. I, the son of
man, look.at the miracles the Lord
wrought before them and yet they
crucified Him. Miracles were
Wrought among people because
men of Judah and Israel were
wholly external men. They were
led into the land of Canaan merely
so that they might represent the
church and its intervals by means
of the externals of worship. I, the
son of man, say externals are
rituals and all of their external was '
significative of spiritual and
celestial things. When the Lord
had manifested Himself and had
been received and acknowledged
in the church as the eternal God,
miracles should have ceased.
I, the son of man, say that a
person should not be reformed by
external mediums, but by internal
mediums. By external mediums
means by miracles and also by
fears and punishments; by internal
mediums means by truths and
goods from the Word and from the
doctrines of the church and by
looking to the Lord. I, the son of
man, say these mediums enter by
an internal way. They cast our
evils and falses, which reside
within. External mediums enter by
an 'external way and do not cast
out evils and falses, but shut them
in. Nevertheless, a person can be
further reformed by external
mediums, provided he hath been
reformed before by internal
mediums. I, the son of man, say a
person is reformed by freedom
and not without freedom; also, that
to compel himself is to be
compelled. If man could be
reformed by miracles and fears all
Would be reformed in the
universal globe. Continued next
week.


New Prospect

Baptist News
Blessings are always in
store for us at the house of our
Father. With a good
attendance Sunday, a sweet
Spirit prevailed as our choir
led in praising God in song.
Bro. Billy then brought a soul-
searching sermon, choosing his
text from 2nd Timothy 4:6-8.
Sunday night was no less
spiritual and thought
provoking, as he brought
another of God's messages
from Hebrews 12:1-3. You're
missing a real blessing if
you're not hearing of God's
love and concern for each of
us!
Our Women's Ministry met
Monday evening, as well as
the Pastor/Deacons. Don't
forget our Annual Valentine
Banquet on Saturday, Feb.
12th, 7:00 P. M. at the Church
Annex; always a fun time! On
Wednesday evening, Feb.
16th, we will have our monthly
Fellowship Supper at the
Church Annex. On Friday,
Feb. 18th, we will have a
Children's Church Weiner
Roast, so things are moving
right along at New Prospect!
We enjoyed our visitors
Sunday, as always...we invite
you to be among them
anytime! Please be in prayer
for the many folks on the
church prayer lists, our
military personnel, our
President, and one another.
Have a good week, and may
God bless you.

In Loving Memory
of

Barbara C. Smith
Who Passed Away February 11, 2004
To know her, was to love her both for family and friends and the
sweetness of her memory time can neither dim nor end.
We miss you Barbi.. .when the sun some up, when the ground is
wet with dew,
We miss you Barbi when the dark appears, when the stars shine
thru the blue,
We miss the love we shared together, so sweet and yet so true,
But more than all the things in life my Dearest, we miss you.
In our hearts your memory lingers, sweetly, tender, tried and true,
There is not a day Dear Barbi that we don't think of you.
Always loved and missed by her.. .Husband Harvey
& Children Jeffrey, Gregory, Cindra,& Robin


In Loving Memory
of

Jerry Elam
February 10, 2004
"Gone But Never Forgotten"
We knew you were leaving, we just didn't know when,
So we clung to each other, and laughed and loved to the end.
The sound of your voice, the touch of your hand,
Is missed more than anyone will ever understand.
They tell me I have to let you go, so you can rest,
But it's so hard to do, when I know I had the best.
A year has come and gone, and the loss and pain is still here,
Life goes on, but memories still linger with a smile and a tear.
Love,
Gail

having self confidence and how important
cheering was to sports teams.
The trip turned out to be an experience the
RRMS girls will never forget. A few of our girl's
were interviewed for various newspapers and by
the NFL public relations.
Each girl received a t-shirt with the Super
Bowl logo and Cheerleading Clinic on it as well
as a cap, but most importantly, a lifetime of
memories.
The girls would like to thank Mrs. Jones and
Mrs. Baumer for helping with the paper work in
order for them to be able to attend. They would
also like to thank the parents who took them and
even those who couldn't go themselves, but
allowed their daughter to attend.

Florida Wildlife Commission

Gives Weekly Report

Levy County
On January 30, Officer Sam Dishman was on land patrol in the
area of Camp Azalea working night hunting activity. At
approximately 1 am., he observed a white Ford F150 mud-slinging
the ditch along the intersection of CR 345 and Camp Azalea Road.
The truck made several passes before getting stuck in the mud. A
short time later a .22-caliber shot was heard coming from the
truck's location. Dishman confronted the four occupants of the
truck. All denied the presence of a firearm. As Dishman was
inquiring about the shot, he observed a small bag of leafy
substance believed to be marijuana in plain view inside the vehicle.
The baggie's contents tested presumptive positive for cannabis.
The driver was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of
cannabis.
On February 2, Officer Kevin Hansen was on land patrol in the
Devil's Hammock WMA. At approximately 4 pm., he observed a
truck leaving the management area. Hansen stopped the vehicle
and performed a check of the occupants. The two adult males
stated they had been hunting squirrels in the management area, but
had no luck. The two showed Hansen their hunting license and
their .22 rifle and shotgun. Hansen advised the two that the hunting
season had been over since Dec. 26. Hansen issued both men a
citation for possession of a firearm in a management area during
the closed season.
After leaving the men, Hanson continued patrolling the WMA
and encountered a suspicious unoccupied pickup with two sets of
human tracks leading away. A short time later he located the two
men unlawfully digging for artifacts on the WMA. Numerous
arrowheads and other artifacts were recovered and the men were
charged with collecting artifacts on state lands.
Also on February 2, while patrolling Devil's Hammock WMA,
Officer Sam Dishman came upon a van occupied by an adult male
and parked on the edge of a fire lane. As Dishman approached the
vehicle, he observed drug paraphernalia laying inside in plain
view. Dishman asked the subject if he had any illegal drugs in his
possession and the man promptly handed him a small baggie of
suspected marijuana. The man was charged with possession of
less than 20 grams of cannabis and drug paraphernalia.

FWC Performs Security During Game
Superbowl XXXIX on the river in Jacksonville is over. The
completion of the game wraps up the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's (FWC) mission of providing water
security along 20 miles of the St. Johns River.
The Superbowl at Alltel Stadium was the most water-related
in the history of the games. The primary objective of the law
enforcement officers patrolling the river was to create a safe' and
orderly environment for the event. FWC's role focused on boating
safety, directing vessel traffic, boating under the influence
enforcement, escort duties, and manatee and security zone
protection.
To accomplish this marine mission, the FWC worked with
other agencies including the U.S. Coast Guard, the Jacksonville
Sheriffs Office (JSO), Florida Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) Florida Alcoholic Beverages and Tabacco (ABT) U.S.
Border Patrol and the Nassau, Flagler, Alachua, St. Johns and Clay
County Sheriffs Offices.
"Our FWC officers did an excellent job," Adams said. "They
were out there on the river, performing very cold and miserable
duty, but they were successful in completing their missions."

Buddy Martin's Weekly Sports Commentary

A Real Cowboy Goes

Out With His

Star On
"When God puts his hand
S on you, you don't have a
choice. Your destiny is your
destiny." Emmitt Smith.
Jacksonville It's
difficult to say which record
Buddy Martin, by Emmitt Smith was more
Sun-Herald impressive: The NFL all-
time rushing yardage of
18,355 or the 22,000 people he thanked at his
retirement press conference Thursday, February
3.
First came God. Then his Pee Wee coach in
Pensacola, to his high school coach, to his
teammates, friends, family, opponents, coaches,
PR people, trainers, fans, ball boys and peanut
-.vendors, Emmitt told them "thank you."
When he got to the names of Troy Aikman,
Michael Irvin and Darryl Johnson, the tears
began to flow, out came the Kleenex and click-
click-click went all the cameras.
Of Jerry Jones, sitting to his left behind a pair
of starred Cowboy helmets, he said: "I thank you
for taking a chance on a guy 5-feet-9 1/2 from
Pensacola
Escambia who probably on his best day ran a
4.5 (40-yard dash)."
Though he played two more years for the
Cardinals after leaving Dallas, Emmitt went out
as a Cowboy. Jones signed him to a one-day,
contract and then said: "I'm here today to claim
you forever more as a as Dallas Cowboy."
That's the way Emmitt will go into the Pro
Football Hall of Fame, too as a Cowboy and
one of the elite running backs in NFL history. I
still rank Jim Brown No. 1, Barry Sanders No. 2
and Walter Payton No. 3. After that come O.J.
Simpson, Eric Dickerson and Gayle Sayers, who
would have been higher .had he played longer.
And right in that mix is where I place Emmitt,
Along with Jerome Bettis, Tony Dorsett, Marcus
Allen, Earl Campbell and Franco Harris.
Nobody, except perhaps "Sweetness," can
iival Emmitt for sheer determination and
dedication. He played 15 years on guile, grit and
',guts. "You can't play the game if you can't take
the pain," Emmitt said. And in the end, when his
body gave out and the Cardinals didn't offer to
,re-sign him, Emmitt hung up his star even
though other teams expressed an interest in him.
1: Frankly, I anderestimated Smiih as a college
'player at Florida. In his final season as a Gator -
he came out after his junior year I covered
most of Emmitt's games and what I saw was a
nice, durable little running back who could find
daylight and make people miss. He ran with the
..grace of an ice skater and was so fluid in his
moves that you couldn't really appreciate his
skill. I didn't know his heart was as big as Texas.
So Emmitt leaves the game as its all-time
'rusher with a league-leading 164 rushing
,';touchdowns and three Super Bowl rings over 15
years. "Or," he said, "as some people would say,
'my 15 minutes of fame.'" That 15 minutes will
last forever, not just because of his stats, but
Because of the classy way he carried himself and
S-the respect that the "kid from Pensacola
:Escambia" showed for the game. Football, he
said, "gave me a chance to have a greater life
than I ever imagined possible."
And of his life as a Cowboy, he added: "You
S-don't know how much that star means to me."
,''.Yes we do, Emmitt. Just about as much as you
;.meant to the NFL and all those Cowboy faithful.
SThis is the politically correct Super Bowl
As of-this writing early in the weekend, there
have been no major flaps, no arrests of players
from New England or Philadelphia, no
.,. outlandish Joe Namath-style predictions and no
gamblers caught for trying to bribe an official or
player.' If the worst that be said is a bunch of
weenie sports writers took cheap shots at the
';.City of Jacksonville, or that Rodney Harrison
-didn't know the names of the Patriot secondary,
then No. XXXIX will be considered fairly
vanilla.
. I've been around football long enough to
*: remember when halftime shows were nothing
-more than band concerts, military marching
exhibitions or circus-like performances. In
college football back in The Day, they'd lock
down a couple of cameras and telecast the best of
John Phillips Sousa live.
Sitting at home this Sunday night, however,
there may be as much attention focused on the
*halftime show as ever. First off, in Paul
>- McCartney the NFL has one of the most popular
' .entertainers in the world. And secondly, Super
. Bowl watchers have learned not to take their
Sees off the TV screen for a moment even at
Sthe half.
: What many people missed last year after the
first two quarters turned out to be the most
Stalked-about play of No. XXXVIII by Janet
Jackson.
fThere will never be a more highly publicized
"flap" than Jackson's.
SUnless you were a Carolina or New England
'"fan, you might well remember Jackson's semi-
strip tease as the game's most dramatic moment,
-even though the Panthers and Patriots were
involved in one of the most hotly contested


A person is never happy Check

games in Super Bowl history.
We're not likely to have that problem of a
nudie act with Paul McCartney. At his press
conference on Thursday, the former Beatle
assured the media he was not anticipating "any
wardrobe malfunction.
Why"? I don't have a wardrobe," McCartney
said whimsically. Even though he grew up as a
fan of European soccer, McCartney has learned
to love American football. And once somebody
told him to "watch the guy in the middle he'll
get the pass" (the quarterback), he's become a big
fan.
The Super Bowl has become the biggest
stage in American television a gigantic home
shopping network for products and, with
tickets priced at $500-$600, reserved for only the
wealthy.
With the merger of the American Football
League and National Football League came the
league championship game, dubbed by Kansas
City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt as the "Super
Bowl" as a derivative from the toy "Super Ball."
You could easily have seen that first game in
the Los Angeles Coliseum at $6 a throw, because
it wasn't even a sellout.
Through the genius of former public relations
man Pete Rozelle, who insisted the game be
played mostly in warm weather in a festival-like
atmosphere, the forefathers of pro football had
no idea it would ever come to this 39 years later
at $2.4 million per 30 second spot and the most
controversial play being made at halftime.
Sometimes I think the NFL needs to pull out
a copy of that old Andy Griffith record "What It
Was Was Football" and get back to the basics.
Super Bowl XXXIX: Of Dynasties,
MVPS & T.O. Some final thoughts
on Super Bowl XXXIX:
Perhaps Mike Vrabel will change the
stereotype of the great clutch receiver. From now
own, NFL personnel people may start looking
for those 6-4, 260-pound go-to guys. After all,
the big linebacker scored his second Super Bowl
touchdown Sunday, tying him with Michael
Irvin, John Taylor and 12 others for most
touchdowns in the big games.
If you wanted to see pressure, all you had to do
was check out the usually unflappable Bill
Belichick, who uncharacteristically got in the
face of two assistants.
Perhaps Rodney Harrison and not Deion
Branch should have been the MVP.
Tom Brady's so cool that if they had to give
him a transfusion they'd have to use ice water.
From now own, if Terrell Owens tells me he's
going to jump over the moon, I will give him the
bcn -fit of the doubt.
MNlybe we were too harsh on Freddie Mitchell,
in retrospect. In my recent column, I meant to
write his name as the player "not knowing the
name of the Patriots defensive backs" and I,
instead wrote "Rodney Harrison." It can happen.
Speaking of Harrison, am I crazy or was he
never actually touched and therefore never down
after his interception on the last play of the
game? Hey, Rodney, keep on running!
Why are we still having such a hard time
getting our arms around the concept of the
Patriots as a "dynasty?" They knocked over three
of the best teams any champion ever. In regular
season games they really tried to win, those three
Patriots opponents Indianapolis, Pittsburgh
and Philly lost a total of about five times.
. Kudos to Jacksonville. Great job! At least that's
how it looked downtown during the week on TV
Sunday. Inside All-Tel Stadium, however, may
have been another matter. People I know said
they were. crowded, that the concessions were
very slow and the bathrooms dirty. Paul
McCartney was awesome. Most people at Super
Bowl parties were singing the "na--na-na-na"
part of "Hey Jude," regardless of the generation.
* Donovan McNabb needs to attending Clock
Management 101 class, along with Brian Griese
of the Bucs.
* Hey, got Noni juice?
* Yo, Terry Bradshaw, lose the beard!
* None of the commercials were memorable. The
satirical message of the woman having difficulty
keeping her top up was clever and the NFL
players singing "Tomorrow" and Jon Gruden
hollering at his kids were among the best.
* I give Fox a B- for its telecast. The director was
a little trigger-happy. One of the best post-game
shots of the night was barely on air: Belichick
with his arms around departing coordinators
Charlie Weis (Notre Dame) and Romeo Crennel
(Cleveland Browns) in a private victory hug.
* If the Patriots had lost, today Belichick would
be getting crucified for letting his offensive and
defensive coordinators pursue other jobs in the
championship stretch drive.
* Now we're going to have to rate the dynasties. I
put the Patriots somewhere behind the Pittsburgh
Steelers of the mid-70s and early 80s, who won
four Super Bowls in six seasons. Check with me
later about the others.

Seniors Lead the Way as Lady Bears Finish

Regular Hoops Season With 17-4 Record


Dixie County High honored its senior girls basketball players at halftime of the team's last home game, Thursday, February 3. Dee
Godbolt, Lamonica Evans, Ullanda Washington are shown with family members during the ceremony.


By Mike Moore-Advocate Sports
It was senior night last Thursday at Dixie County High's girls'
basketball game. The Lady Bears played Taylor County in their last
home game of the season with three senior players being honored
at halftime. The team won by a 61-31 score, and along with a 52-36
win over Jefferson County on Tuesday, and Saturday afternoon's
58-22 defeat of Bronson, finished the regular season with-a 17-4
mark.
In the Jefferson game, nine players scored for the Lady Bears.
Deidre Godbolt and Fahrron Timmons both hit for 12, Vanessa
Hollis scored. 10, Ulland Washington Shantay Harris, and Alexis
Mauldin each scored four, and Shatone West, Aqura Washington
and Katrise Kirkland contributed two points apiece.


Against Taylor in the home finale, Hollis led with 23, while
Ullanda Washington tossed in 13.Washington also pulled down 10
rebounds. Eleven players scored in the Bronson victory. Godbolt
led with 11 and Kirkland contributed eight. Godbolt had 11
rebounds in the afternoon contest.
The district tournament begins Thursday in Dunnellon. Dixie
will face Williston in the opener and if the Lady Bears win, they
will be assured a trip to the next round. In district play, the top two
teams advance.
Honored at the Taylor game were Godbolt, LaMonica Evans,
and Ullanda Washington. Also recognized, but unable to play
because of injury was Lona Brown.


Four Bear Footballers Named To All-State Team

By Mike Moore-Advocate Sports
Four senior football players from Dixie County High have been named to the Class 2B All-State team by the Florida Sportswriters
Association.
On the First Team defensive unit were lineman Justin Cotman and defensive backs Paul O'Hara and Leo Sliney. On the Second Team
offensive unit was lineman Ralph Jones.
Cotman and O'Hara signed college grant-in-aid letters last Wednesday.
The-three first-team selections were more than any other school in the classification. Union County, Ft. White, and Newberry were also
well represented on the teams.

Even Team Wins Again, 6-0


Curtis D avis 1.. .I .. .. .'
Oh! My! I am going to feel that in the morning.
The Even Team managed to pull off another win last Saturday night at the Annual "Swamp Cabbage Bowl" 6-0. This gives the
Even Team two wins to the Odd Team zero wins. The game last year ended in a tie.
Announcer for the evening, Rev. Ed Ivey, reported that both teams were running a "Can-Can" offense -- 1,2,3 ---Kick, for the game.
Phillip Wheeler and Chris Hackle were coaches for the Odd-Red team while Jerry Wayne Evans and Adam Gore called the plays for the
Even-White team. Referees for the game were Paul Bennett, Brent Wilkerson and P. J. Hope.
The Odd team won the toss and elected to kick off .. the Even team first. During the first quarter, William Bennett, on the Even
team, caught two passes for approximately 55 yards. Aaron Dawson scored the only TD for the night when he crossed the goal line with
8.6 seconds left in the first quarter. The PAT scoring attempt failed.
The highlight of the second quarter was when Kenny Buchanan recovered a fumble for the Even team with 9:57 seconds to go.
The third quarter saw the ball see-saw back and forth between the two teams. There was plenty of hard hitting going on between the
two teams and at various time players from both teams could be seen nursing an injured knee, ankle or shoulder on the sidelines.
At the beginning of the 4th quarter, the Odd team's J. T. Herring intercepted a pass from the Even team's quarterback, John Thomas.
The Odd teams hopes to tie the game or go ahead were quickly diminished when a long pass from quarterback Donnell Teague was
dropped near the goal line. And with 7:40 left on the clock, Turtle Montgomery recovered a fumble for the white team.
All in all, it was a good game and the players, coaches, officials, press box crew and the spectators has a wonderful (but cold) time
supporting the DCHS Quarterback' Club and football team. So Odd year players maybe this is the time to start recruiting players for
next year's game so that the "Odd Squad" can win their first game.
1975 DCHS graduate, Curtis Davis, was this year's oldest player at the ripe-old-age of 48. Seems as though some of his classmates
maybe feeling their age and chose not to play in the game. Remember you are as young as you feel. (Mitch, Curtis wanted to know where
you were.) Newly elected School Board member, Pat Bell, who was the oldest player in the first Alumni game, was seen walking the
sidelines and enjoying the game.
Players for the Even/White team were: Mario Godbolt, Aaron Dawson, Frank Whitehead, Rod Dawson, William Bennett, Kevin St.
Laurent, Cedric Perry, David Anthony, Dearmus Lovett, Jason Hurst, Edward Marsh, Joey Whittington, Stephen Reed, Kenny Buchanan,
Willie Carraway, Kevin Dey, Jamie Davis, John Thomas and Jody Smith.
Members of the Odd/Red team were: Donnell Teague, Jesse Teague, Andrew Davis, J.T. Herring, Dean Watson, Bobby Wesley,
Ashley Teague, Edward Evans, Keith Tuten, Antonio Williams, Curtis Davis, Charlie Watson, Turtle Montgomery, Linton Edmonds,
Garrett Woodall, James Henderson and Larry Keen.
P.S. Although, the "Total Package, Edward Marsh declined comment before the game started he was seen "selling tickets" after the
game ended. Just wait until next year!

3 :Little Known Facts
www littleknownfactsshow.com
by Chaz Allen


Missing President!
The president was missing! You can imagine what kind of
commotion that caused, especially among the White House staff
and the cabinet. Not to mention the public. Well, the public
wasn't really aware of the president's disappearance as of yet, and
the higher-ups decided that until they found out where President
John Tyler was, they wouldn't make his absence known just yet.
But they were hot on the trail trying to find him, and covering
their tracks with the press and the other members of congress while
they were at it. Excuses were made: the president has a headache,
a bit of gout, a touch of a cold. Too many stories really, people
were getting suspicious. They contacted his family, and they didn't
know either, or at least said they didn't.
Was he the victim of some hideous foreign plot to take the
president for ransom? There had been rumors to that effect in the
past. Was he the victim of an assassination attempt, and the staff
was hiding it from the public? Speculation ran wild within the
ranks of the staffers, but no one really knew.
The president seemed happy lately. He had been courting a
lovely woman by the name of Julia Gardiner a woman 30 years
his junior. He had actually proposed four different times, but she
had refused each time. Most who knew thought that rather cheeky
of her really, to turn down the proposal of a president. He was
depressed after the untimely death of his wife, but since meeting
Julia, he seemed happy.
Then there was that incident on the USS Princeton, a Naval
frigate. While Julia and her father were on a tour, a cannon
exploded and killed six people, Julia's father among them. Julia
was despondent, and grieved for weeks. The president was very
attentive, and a source of great comfort and compassion during this
time for her. She recovered, and seemed to be much more
accepting of his attention. And ever since, they had seemed happy.
So where was he? Where was the president? It was going on
three days now since his disappearance, and no one had a clue.
And boy, it was getting harder and harder to make excuses to the
Congress and the press. Massive searches were started in every
quadrant. The Capitol police were rounding up the usual suspects
and questioning them, but being careful not to let the cat out of the
bag and make it known that the president was missing.
Then suddenly, he was back as quickly as he had disappeared -
smiling, beaming, and married! Yep, married. But he warned
every staffer to keep their mouth shut. They didn't! The news was
too big.
But It's a Little Known Fact: that we really did have one
president who literally eloped. Ran off like a love struck teenager
and got married by the Rev. Benjamin Threadwell Onderdonk at
the Church of the Ascension in New York City.

MEN VS. WOMEN
There are always so many good
topics in the battle of men vs.
women. This week we decided to
talk about translating the language
of women for men and vice versa.
Here ya go:
Words Women Use:
* "Fine" really means "This is
the word women use to end
an argument when they feel
they are right and you need to
shut up. Never use "fine" to
describe how a woman looks -
this will cause you to have
one of those arguments."
* "Nothing" really means "This
means "something" and you
should be on your toes.
"Nothing" is usually used to
describe the feeling a woman
has of wanting to turn you
inside out, upside down, and
backwards. "Nothing" usually
signifies an argument that will
last "Five Minutes" and end
with "Fine."
* "Go ahead" with raised
eyebrows really means "This
is a dare; one that will result
in a woman getting upset over
"nothing" and will end with
the word "fine."
* "Go ahead" with normal
eyebrows really means "This
means "I give up" or "do what
you want because I don't
care." You will get a "raised
eyebrow go ahead" in just a
few m minutes, followed by
"nothing" and "fine" and she
will talk to you in about "five
minutes" when she cools off.
* "That's okay" really means
"This is one of the most
dangerous statements that a
woman can make to a man. It
means that she wants to think
long and hard before paying
you back for whatever it is
that you have done. "That's
okay" is often used with the
word "Fine" and in
conjunction with a "Raised
Eyebrow."


go % sm up 4w


1 4 1




F


* "Thanks" A woman is
thanking you. Do not faint.
Just say you're welcome.
* "Thanks a lot" This is much
different from "Thanks." A
woman will say "Thank s A
Lot" when she is really ticked
off at you. It signifies that you
have off ended her in some
callous way, and will be
followed by a loud sigh. Be
careful not to ask what is
wrong after the loud sigh, as
she will only tell you
"Nothing."
And the guys get their due, so
here's a list of Phrases Men
Use:
* "Let's take your car" really
means "Mine is full of beer
cans, burger wrappers, and
completely out of gas."
* "I don't care what color you
paint the kitchen" really
means "As long as it's not
blue, green, pink, red, yellow,
lavender, gray, mauve, black,
turquoise or any other color
besides white."
* "Can I help with dinner?"
really means "Why isn't it
already on the table?"
* "It would take too long to
explain" really means "I have
no idea how it works."
* "Take a break, honey, you're
working too "hard" really
means "I can't hear the game
over the vaccuum cleaner."
* "That's interesting dear" really
means "Are you still talking?"
* "You know how bad my
memory is" really means "I
remember the theme song to
"F Troop," the address of the
first girl I ever kissed and the
Vehicle Identification
Numbers of every car I've
ever owned, but I forgot your
birthday."
* "Uh huh, sure honey or yes,
dear" really mean absolutely
nothing. It's a conditioned
response.

On the morning of August 13, 2004 most of us who live here in
Florida were waiting for Hurricane Charley to arrive. Well, we at
the Herring household were waiting for' the birth of my first
grandson. If you remember Charley was supposed to hit in the
Tampa, Clearwater area. However, by the grace of God it turned a
different way. We got the call from Hubel the night before that our
baby was on his way. We wanted to go on to Clearwater that night,
but Hubel wanted us to wait until morning because of the
impending weather. When morning came the administration at
Morton Plant Hospital had decided to close the hospital, only
patients and their spouses were allowed to be there. Our family
gathered here at my house and waited' by the phone. When the
baby was born Hubel called and we all listened to Jaxson's first cry
on the speakerphone, it was the next best thing to being there. He
was born at 8:31 am on August 13, 2004; he weighed 7 pounds and
7 ounces and was 19 /2 inches long. He is a beautiful baby boy
with his Papa Mickey's blue eyes. We are so thankful that
Hurricane Charley did not hit Clearwater.
Jaxson is the son of Hubel. and Tina Herring. Paternal
Grandparents are Mickey and Jennie Herring and Maternal
Grandparents are Tony and Mary Lou Sciarrino. He is the great
grandson of the late Harold and Edith Herring and Thomas and
Floretta Lamb. Jaxson is the nephew of Jason and Haley Herring
and BoKaye and Nathan Wright.

It's A Boy!

Governor Applauds Flexibility In
President's Budget
" Governor Jeb Bush Tuesday applauded the new budget
proposal from President George W. Bush that consolidates funding
for a number of workforce development programs into a
streamlined grant, The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Plus
Consolidated Grant program is the key component of the
administration's package of reforms for the reauthorized
Workforce Investment Act, first enacted in 1998. The President's
proposal will consolidate four Department of Labor job training
and funding streams: WIA Adult, WIA, Dislocated Worker, WIA
Youth and Employment Services."I commend the President's
proposal allowing more flexibility in the services we provide
Floridians," Governor Bush said. "Those services include, adult
education assistance, individuals with disabilities who access the
vocational rehabilitation system, and our veterans who deserve a
first rate employment and training system. Florida will use this
opportunity to streamline and improve programs, eliminate
duplication, and help more people train for the jobs of the 21st
Century."
The WIA Adult, WIA Dislocated Worker, and WIA Youth
programs and Employment Services will form the base of the
consolidated program with nearly $4 billion in resources. In
addition, states will have the option of consolidating certain other
federal job training and employment programs that are currently
administered by the Departments of Labor, Education and
Agriculture. Federal resources for these other programs total about
$3.6 billion. Together, these programs represent $7.5 billion in
federal resources.
"We have long advocated for more flexibility in the federal
funds we receive," said Susan Pareigis, Director of the Agency for
Workforce Innovation. "The President's budget will allow
Florida's workforce system to be proactive, delivering resources
toward emerging opportunities rather than allocating funds based
on where the demand was last year."

DISH Goes Local
By Terri Langford -Staff Writer
Last week the folks at Perry Connections spent the day in Cross City helping residents with
questions regarding DISH Network's new local channel service. A long time complaint of locals is not
being able to get "local" news
.. .- and programming DISH Network
is the first satellite provider to
offer the once banned
programming and Andy Jackson,
owner of Perry Connection and,
-. Jerry Allen of Power Country
r f WNFK-92.1 were spreading the
good news with a live remote
broadcast in the Dixie Appliance
parking lot.
Jackson along with Sherry
Davis, also of Perry Connection
S -. stayed busy throughout the day
answering questions and signing
people up for the new service.
.. Local channels now available are
ABC's channel 20; CBS's
Dixie residents were anxious to find out how they could get the new channel 4, Fox's channel 51 and
local service. PBS's channel 5.
The new service requires a special receiver that will be included in new signups and can be readily
acquired by existing customers. For those already with DISH, the cost of the new system will vary,
depending on your current contract. If you are on a year agreement the cost to set up the new system is
free. Monthly cost for the .
service will be $3.99 for all four .
channels. You will need to call .--
DISH's customer service to find
out other costs. If you aren't
with DISH, Jackson will be J
happy to give you a quote. Just '--- ,v '
call toll free 1-888-499-1700. or [ ...
send them an email at .
info(25perryconnections.com. ., ; '
Perry,Connections has been .
in business since 2001. It all ..
began when Jackson's son ::
decided that he wanted to go to .
school for computer training. -' ".;;I i.
Jackson, who is an engineer by /
trade, has worked with : r'
computers his entire career, Pictured left to right are Jerry Allen, Sherry Davis and Andy
joined his son's venture and the Jackson.
both of them became certified in
advanced satellite systems and computer networking. Working out of the Jackson family business,
Jackson's Furniture, in Perry, the father son team has expanded to a ten-employee team and fleet of
trucks. Besides satellite products, Perry Connections has service and support for home and small
business computers, web design and hosting, and radio and Internet service.
For your convenience Dixie Appliance will have brochures and information available at their Cross
City store, located on US 19, just before McDonalds. In the future they hope to also carry spare parts
for the DISH systems.
Many thanks to Jackson and his team for bringing this great news to our neck of the woods.

A million times
we needed you,
A million times we cried.
If love alone could
have spared you,
You never would have died.
If all the world
was ours to give,
We would give it all,
yes and more.
To see you coming
up the steps
And walking through the door.
To hear your voice,
to see your smile,
To sit and talk to you a while.
To be with you the
same old way
Would be our greatest day.
A heart of gold
stopped beating
Two smiling eyes
closed to rest,
God broke our hearts
to prove to us
He only takes the best.
Love always,

Life On Board A Submarin
By R. David Valdez
On Board USS Tennessee (SSBN 734) -
While many college students spent the summer
working or relaxing on vacation, Midshipman
Jennifer Sanders spent her summer break on
board the nuclear-powered submarine USS
Tennessee (SSBN 734).
Sanders, daughter of James
and Carolyn Sanders of Riner,
VA and granddaughter of
Richard and Jane Sanders of
Cross City, FL, expressed & :^
excitement about being on board
and what she gained the most.
"'As a studying naval
architect, being aboard a
submarine firsthand has provided .
me. with some valuable ..
experience in my field of study," .. ,
she said. "As I've been exposed ;,
to the problems encountered by '-: '
the'crew aboard these vessels, I '" '
can' apply that knowledge when Midshi*
considering for comfort and JenniferI
practicality in future designs."
The summer tour offered Sanders the
opportunity to experience the day-to-day
operations of the vessel and an idea of some of
the 'challenges of living on board.
"A lack of daylight is the most obvious
adjustment to make when getting underway with
a submarine, but I spoke with one crewmember

who found it far more difficult to be away from
his family," Sanders said.
After seeing first-hand what submarine life is
like, Sanders took some time to evaluate her
decision to become a Naval officer.
"I always 'loved being around water. I also
appreciate the strong degree of
discipline present in the
military, as both of my parents
were in the Air'Force," said the
A graduate of Blacksburg High
A. School in Blacksburg. "After
J my father retired, I started to
'C, miss the military experience, so
I joined the Navy, if only to
travel more than my parents
did."
A Midshipman Jennifer
Sanders is just one example of
the many young men and
women who are making some of
pman their first important adult
Sanders decisions by investigating future
career options. They have
chosen to become leaders in the U. S. Navy and
elected to lead by serving their nation. By doing'
this, Sailors like Sanders not only continue
military traditions, but also help maintain the
security of the nation.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:


Superintendent of Schools
Dennis W. Bennett


Governor's

2005-2006 Budget- .

Proposes Increase

For Rural

Communities
Governor Jeb Bush ,2
announced a series of initiatives,',
aimed at enhancing the -:
commitment to Florida's '


economically distressed rural:.','
counties and communities. While other counties' budgets are.,,
Clerk experiencing rapid increases and property values rise, rural
counties, which are limited in their growth potential, often have
TICE difficulty simply meeting basic needs. As part of their policy and
budget recommendations, the Governor is proposing $301 million,.,..
URT OF FLORIDA for small rural communities. .:
OUIT, INANDFORA We in the Dixie School System applaud the Governor's
proposal for assistance to small rural counties as we strive to meet"'
NO.: 04-0438-CA the needs of our citizens and students. But we must remember that
the legislature will now propose their budgets. When the dust
clears at the end of this legislative session, we hope we fare better
then we did last year. We mention this because, in the Governor's
budget last year was a proposed increase for Sparsity Funds for'
small rural school districts. When the legislature met last year,,
they cut these funds from the budget. This was a disappointment.
Again this year the Governor has proposed a $9 million increase in
additional funds in recognition of the relatively higher operating
costs of smaller school districts due to sparse student population .
This would be a 29% increase over current year. Rural counties
,CTION can use this funding for any educational operating need.
The Dixie School District continues .to see a declining, ,
enrollment trend since 1998. We don't see any reversal of this
trend until our county can attract industry that will bring families
with children to our area. We have looked at our enrollment f
statistics and we have as many students entering our schools from"'
iat an action to other districts as we have leaving our schools to go to other"'
following property districts. What we need is industry that can provide jobs .so that
people can stay, live and work in Dixie County.
AY SUBDIVISION, We are pleased to see that there is an understanding by the"'
LAT THEREOF AS Governor of the financial plight of small rural districts. Now'we.'
OOK 1, PAGE(S) will have to increase our lobbying effort hoping that the legislature .
OF THE PUBLIC
UNTY. FLORIDA. A will have the same understanding.

Anti-Murder Legislation Wins

Sheriffs' Endorsement
The, anti-murder legislative package proposed by Attorney
General Charlie Crist has won the endorsement of the Florida -
Sheriffs Association, Crist announced Tuesday. The legislative '.
package would require that violent offenders who violate probation .
be held until a judge determines they pose no risk to the
community.
In a recent letter, Bradford County Sheriff Bob Milner said the --
Association "wholeheartedly supports" the Attorney General's..
efforts to reduce the threat to the public posed by convicted killers '
and other violent offenders. "We share a common goal to make
sure that these offenders remain in prison," wrote Sheriff Milner,
who serves as president of the Association.
"I am gratified that Florida's elected law enforcement leaders,,.
agree that more needs to be done to protect innocent citizens from ,.:,
violent criminals living in their inidst," said Crist. "This legislation'
is important to .protecting public safety, and the support of the
Florida Sheriffs Association will help make this change a reality."
The Anti-Murder legislative package, inspired, by the tragic
abduction and murder of young Carlie Brucia and the brutal
murders of six individuals in Deltona, is sponsored by Sen. Rudy,
Garcia and Rep. Bruce Kyle. Under the proposals, an individual
with a violent past who violates probation will be
arrested, and cannot be released on bail until a judge has held a"'
"risk-to-the-public" hearing and issued a written order that the
violator does not pose a danger to the community.

We're Not Yoking
We're not yoking when we tell you that the egg shown in the top picture
is a chicken egg. This unique photo comes via Roberta and David Baker of
Steinhatchee. The couple had been on vacation over the Christmas holidays
and when they returned their neighbors, Ann and DL, who had been gathering
eggs for them couldn't wait to show them what they had discovered. They all
were thinking the same thing, "Poor chicken!"
The Bakers began their small poultry adventure several years ago with
their grandsons came to see them and they had bought the boys six baby
chicks for Easter. They haven't
been without chickens since. In
fact, they now have four
grandchildren they adopted who
really like to help take care of
the hens and gather eggs. "Glad
they don't all look like this one,"
said Roberta.
Thanks for sharing; it was an
"egg-cellenit" story.
The second sighting came to
us from. our bird watching
Friends, Jim and Sherry
Ragsdale. Sherry reported that
she has been blessed for several
years now with the return of this
beautiful Baltimore Oriole.
Most orioles do not winter in
the United States, but return
during the breeding season.
There are eight species of orioles
that breed in the United States,
the Baltimore Oriole and
Orchard Oriole being the two.
most frequent in the East and the
Bullock's Oriole in the West.
Orioles weave nests of
natural plant fibers and will also
use string cut into 8-12 inch,
strips. They nest in trees in
suburban areas, parks, forest
edges, and along rivers.
April 1st is when we most
likely will see these beautiful
birds. They often eat fruit and
can be attracted with orange
halves placed on platform
feeders, a deck railing, or nailed to a tree. They also may use special sugar water feeders because sugar
water is similar to the -flower nectar on which orioles naturally feed. In addition to fruit and sugar
water, orioles can be attracted to grape jelly and mealworms. Try one of these; you too may be able to
enjoy watching as the Ragsdales do.
