By. Terri Langford Staff Writer
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher is putting out a
warning to residents about a current phone scam
occurring in our area. To date the Dixie County
Sheriffs Office has received three complaints
concerning the scam in our area.

Cross City Council

Members Hear of

Possible Grants and

Plans for Two New

Area Businesses
By Mike Moore Advocate Staff
In a busy two-hour Town Council meeting
Monday night, Cross City leaders discussed grants,
water, ice, and cleanup.
Dick Edwards covered three possible sources of
funding for which Cross City is currently eligible to
apply. There is a Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant, a
Disaster Recovery. Initiative, and a Hurricane
Damage Assessment and Housing Recovery
Program. Edwards felt the best chance for the city
was the second of the three. This grant has a March
28 application deadline. The Pre-Disaster program
has a March 4 deadline and those receiving funds
can get up to $3 million. These funds would be used
for drainage improvement.
In another matter, a businessman from Quitman,
Georgia, Jim Edmondson, discussed his plans for
placing an ice vending machine in town. Council
members were supportive of the plans. Edmondson
already has a machine in Madison and it has done
well. Customers will be able to purchase ice by the
bag or get it for their coolers when the machine is
placed in Cross City.
Glenn Osteen appeared before the council to
discuss gaining water to his property off of Suwanee
Lumber Road. He plans to open a store that will sell
farm supplies, feed, and clothing. It would serve the
farming community as well as the general public.
Council members were in favor of extending water
service to the property for this new business.
Council members also talked about cleanup of
properties in town. Several parcels are in need of
work and owners are either no longer living or
unable to pay for cleanup work. A study of how
other communities handle this situation will be
made.

Out A Cry For Help |
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
Last week Horseshoe Beach residents and businesses, along with county and state officials gathered at Horseshoe Beach Maria arme.
with scissors in hopes of cutting the "red tape" that has all but stopped the process of getting help from damage sustained during Hurricane
Frandes.. .
The problem is simple, -, -. .. ., i "


Hurricane Frances brought with 2
her high winds, rain and sand
into the main canal in
Horseshoe, upwards of 2 to 3
feet. The solution is not simple. g
First funding must be found, and
then .permitting, bidding for
contractors .and the dredging
itself performed.
Horseshoe Beach Marina
owners, Joe and Tasha Spradley
have actively sought help since
Frances, as their marina sits on
the plugged canal which has
nearly shut their business down.
Fishermen in the small coastal
community have also been
'affected. During a full moon
and low tides they aren't able to
get out to the main channel,
literally leaving them "up the
canal without water to paddle."
Emergency operations are also
hindered by the closed access to
the water. "If we were to have
an emergency out on the water
none of our rescue teams would
be able to get to those in
distress," stated Emergency
Services Director Chad Reed.
.He noted that .the Sheriffs
Department, Florida Wildlife
Commission and Coast Guard's
rescue efforts could potentially
be affected as well. "This is a
serious issue," Reed added.
Acting as spokesman at the
meeting was Frank Darabi,

engineer for both the Town of Horseshoe Beach and Dixie County. Darabi spoke directly to FEMA representatives that were in
attendance, explaining the urgency in getting help to the town. Darabi estimates that it will cost approximately $250,000 to dredge.the
quarter mile canal. The greatest cost is the laying out of the pipe that will carry the silt to a spoilage site at the. far end of the town.
However, Darabi noted that it is a blessing that the spoilage site that was constructed after the Storm of the Century in 1995 can still be
used. Darabi added that if they hadn't had the site secured, the permitting process alone would take months and the people of Horseshoe


haven't got that kind of time.


Cross City

Police

Continue To

Investigate

Counterfeit

Scam
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Saturday,
February 12t, Cross City
Police were. called to the
Nugget Store on US 19
concerning a possible passing
of counterfeit bills.
According to a report filed
by Officer Danny Forehand the
store clerk, Michael Kruger
called law enforcement after
having an encounter with two
black males purchasing lottery
tickets with two suspicious $20
bills. The first suspect bought
$20.00 worth of scratch-off
tickets while the other suspect
purchased $6.00 worth of
tickets and received $14'00 in
change from another
counterfeit $20.00 bill.
The store's video camera
taped the incident and that tape
has been sent to the Dixie
County Sheriffs Investigative
team to be analyzed.
The vehicle used by the
two suspects was an older 4-
door sedan, tan or brown in
color.
The passing of counterfeit
currency is a federal offense,
punishable by a fine or
imprisonment up to 20 years or
both.
Chief of Police Wesley
Jones is asking residents to
help in this case by calling the.
Police Department with any
information you may have
-concerning this incident. The
number at City Hall is 498-
3507.

Canada beckons
Following George W. Bush's microscopically narrow victory in
the 2000 election, there were a number of Hollywood celebrities
and other mavens of the political left who had said they would
leave the United States in the event of a Bush victory who were left
with egg on their faces because they reneged on their threat...
make that their promise.
Yo6u see, I was hoping some of them actually would seek refuge
in Iraq, North Korea, or some other place where the) would feel
more at home. But no such luck.
At least the empty threats and/or promises of 2000 have been
somewhat muted in the hallowed halls of Hollywood this time
around, but there seem to be some lesser luminaries who are taking
up the cause..
Christopher Key, a resident of Washington state who claims to
be a descendant of Francis Scott Key (whose contribution to our
culture is having penned the words to the "Star Spangled Banner")
is on his way out, heading for Canada as soon as he can (a) get his
asking price for his house, and (b) find a job in Canada worthy of
his talents, whatever those might be. (It should be pointed out that,
while .Canada's government has long welcomed our dissidents
wishing to avoid military service, they are otherwise interested in
accepting only "skilled workers" as legal residents.)
Don't be too surprised if Christopher's exodus winds up getting
postponed for at least four years, or that he will put off renouncing
: his U.S. citizenship until he has a chance to vote for Hillary. (Other
, options include voting in California, where they're not all that
^ fussy about your citizenship, or registering in Chicago, where you
' get to vote even after you're dead.)
Melanie Redman, another Washingtonian, has a Canadian boy-
V friend and is applying for a "conjugal visa," which requires
'" evidence that the couple have been cohabiting for at least a year.
i- Precisely how one meets the criteria is perhaps best left to the
imagination; but regardless, she just can't stand living in this
f country another minute under the presidency of George W. Bush.
For those' who actually might be contemplating a move to
' Canada, there are a few things you might want to think about first.
; Like our First Amendment. Canada doesn't have an equivalent
document protecting free speech and freedom of religion, nor do
: most European governments for that matter.
: Granted, our activist courts have grossly distorted the "estab-
p lishment clause," and freedom of speech seems to have taken leave
- of many of our university campuses; however, we're still not
: operating under the constraints on speech and religion that one will
: find in Canada.
^" To illustrate my point, a Canadian man who placed a
newspaper ad citing chapter and verse only of four Bible passages
condemning homosexuality was ordered to pay more than $5,000
to three gay men who were offended by the ad. The court ruled that
it was a "human rights offense."
S Canada also does not have an equivalent of our Second Amend-
ment, but that shouldn't bother the sort of folks who seem intent on
: relocating there.
Like many of you, I have survived the presidencies of six
" Democrats and an equal number of Republicans, none of whom
Shave provoked me to the extent that I would even have considered
. moving to another country. What's more, I am personally
Acquainted with people holding to a lot of divergent political views,
,: but none who fancy that their lives would improve if they could live
> someplace besides the United States, regardless of which party's
- candidate occupies the White House.
S However, if those who can no longer tolerate the political
atmosphere in this country would prefer to live elsewhere, please
Sdo so with my blessings.

Influences
Recently, I purchased a copy of Time magazine. Please
understand this is something I almost never do. It is not that I know
so much that I never want or need to purchase a news magazine.
First, I am reluctant to part with my $3.95, plus tax.
Second, I do not need some folks gathered in a room in New
York or other foreign place, telling me how to think. The people of
Time have very little to say that I wish to read or know about. I am
able to form my own opinions and judgments without, their
assistance. And a great deal of their magazines and others in the
vast modem media flood is composed of opinion.
I can even figure out which candidate to vote for in an election.
Without input from "authorities."
But the cover of this issue got me. This issue had a story about
the "25 Most Influential Evangelicals." The usual people were
there. Billy Graham and his son, Franklin.were on the list. Dr.
James Dobson was there. There were several I did not know.
Others, I was a little bit aquainted with. The editors pointed out
that they left some off on purpose-Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson,
etc. According to these pollsters, the most influencial is Pastor
Rick Warren, whose book, The Purpose-Driven Life, has now sold
20 million copies. That is a lot of influence.
I also recently saw a list of the top people in the entertainment
world and another of the media people with the most influence.
These lists are all based on opinion.
This list-making brought me to the thought, just what are the
main influences on us and our children? 'Do we allow those to
influence us who are not the best? Think about our choicesin cars,
food, clothes, politics, education, and careers. Many of the voices
we hear do not have our best interests at heart. Many only want our
wallet or our vote.
I saw a sign at a car dealer, "We've got your back." Now that is
comforting. These folks will look out after me. I get mail telling
me what I "deserve." Oh? I am told I deserve a break or good
service or better fried chicken or beautiful hair. Note the picture at
the top of this column when thinking about my beautiful hair.
Who tells our kids. what music to hear or shoes to wear? Which
athletes influence youngsters to play fair, not take drugs, and listen
to the coach?
If we listen to voices, whose are they?
I have an idea. How about if we heed the Voice of the One who
designed and planned the whole system in the first place? Not bad.
,God has not left us to wander around in the desert of confusion.
We can find out all we need to know in His Word.
We don't need to ask Time or Donald Trump or Cher or Hillary
or Teddy Kennedy or the UN or the AAU or CIO or the Koran,
God knows. "For the LORD gives wisdom....If any of you
lacks wisdom, he should ask God." We can try the Bible.
Good idea.

Letter to the Editor
Florida's Constitution Should Agree That Children Need a
Mother and a Father...
For centuries in our world marriage has been commonly
understood as a relationship between a man and a woman.
*Specifically in the United States, marriage has historically been a
monogamous relationship between a man and a wbrian. "Marriage
in this state is a common good, not a special interest," says
Christian Coalition of Florida's Executive Director, Bill Stephens.
"This is why we are supporting an Amendment to the Florida
Constitution to preserve marriage between man and a woman."
.Every society needs natural marriage (as many men as possible
each finding a woman, caring for and committing himself
exclusively to her) working together to create and raise the next
generation. "No society needs homosexual coupling. In fact, too
much of it would be harmful to society and that is why natural
marriage and same-sex coupling cannot be considered socially
equal," says Stephens.
"Furthermore, same-sex coupling celebrated gender sameness
and denies children the gender diversity of their mother and
father," Stephens adds. "A loving and compassionate society never
intentionally creates mother-less and father-less families, which is
exactly what every same-sex home does."

Representative Kendrick & Senator Lawson Submit Net
Fishing Bills...
On Tuesday, February 8th, Representative Will Kendrick and
Senator Alfred Lawson submitted bills in the Florida House and
Senate to clearly define legal. fishing nets under the Florida
Constitution. Kendrick's bill is numbered HB 741, and Lawson's
is SB 1178.
A year after the Net Limitation Act took effect in 1996, the
Legislature defined that nets of any mesh size made of twisted
nylon, cotton, linen twine or polypropylene, were legal.nets. Ted
Forsgren of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) attended
the Legislative meetings agreeing that nets made of the
Legislatively approved materials were NOT gill nets and were
perfectly legal to fish with.
Evidently Forsgren has memory loss nowadays, because he is
attempting to convince his constituents and the press that the
fishing industry is trying to bring back "illegal gill nets.'.
Forsgren's group, the CCA, have controlled virtually every move
of the commission since their inception in 1999. The CCA's
influence has led the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) to believe that they are above the law, don't '
have to obey legislative mandates, state statutes, or the supreme
court.
Representative Kendrick and Senator Lawson understand the
plight of the fishing community and just might have a few more
surprises in store for the CCA controlled FWC. Our hats are off to
Representative Kendrick and Senator Lawson for standing up for
the environment, citizens and economy!
The new additions of HB 741 and SB 1178 read, "Any net
constructed of braided or twisted nylon, cotton, linen twine, or
polypropylene twine, regardless of its mesh size, not exceeding
500 square fee, shall not be considered a gill or entangling net and
may be used to harvest mullet in the waters of this state."
Stay tuned!

Letter to the Editor
Social Security has always been considered the third-rail of
American politics. But this year, President Bush has made it clear'
that the time has come for an honest, straightforward, and realistic
discussion about the future of Social Security. Florida Democratic
Congressman, Allen Boyd, wants to add his voice to that
discussion. I commend him for his conviction to stand up to those
in his own political party and do what is right for the future of
Social Security.
Yes, Congressman Boyd is a Democrat, and I am a Republican
- the former Chairman of the Subcommittee'on Social Security in
the U.S. House of Representatives.
In politics there is always a temptation to kick the can down
the foad and hope that problems might disappear. That is not how
Congressman Allen Boyd views his job. Lawmakers like Allen
Boyd want to be in office to confront big challenges, not to pass
them along to future generations and future Congresses. That's the
kind of approach Floridians expect from their leaders, especially
when it comes to a defining national purpose like Social Security.
Congressman Boyd knows that the longer we wait to address
the coming crisis, the more difficult and expensive the job will be
down the line. So in this new term, along with his leadership, we
will save Social Security for all time, and put it on a path to
permanent solvency and stability.
Allen is an honorable man, a friend, and I applaud his
leadership for the people of the 2 District of Florida.
We will need bipartisan commitment in the months ahead. Both
parties will be tempted to use Social Security as a political football.
Yet, we -should all recognize that playing politics with, Social
Security is playing politics Lih the future of our children and our
grandchildren.
U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw
(R-Fort Lauderdale)

Letter to the Editor
To the low down, ungrateful, thief that stole stuffed animals
from our sons' grave, we would-like 'to say that it takes a very
sorry low life to steal from a grave. I would hate to know that I
could lie down at night knowing that I had stole from a little boys'
grave. I would love to see your face when you have to one day
stand before God and answer for your actions. But, if you are who
we think you are, this will be minor compared to the other things
that you will have to answer for.
Daniel & Amy Landrum

Clarification
In last week's report on the County Commission meeting, we
explained the animal control situation in Dixie County. The county
does not have any restriction as to the type or number of animals
that may be kept on private property. There is, however, a leash law
restricting animals from roaming onto other citizens' property.

HELP
:Continued from page 1


March is the beginning of the sports fishing season. Spradley
and other businesses have been hard hit by the 2004 hurricanes
,already and not being able to load boats from his docks will shut
him down. Like a domino effect, in turn area restaurants, bait
houses and other small businesses will be affected by the lack of
boats launched at the marina. "We are dependent on the water for
survival," stated Spradley.
Dixie County as a whole is dependent on eco-tourism. The
Gulf waters and beautiful Suwannee River make our neck of the
woods very attractive to city dwellers. Many. out-of-towners have
purchased property in our area, including the new condos in
Horseshoe Beach, in order to enjoy boating and fishing.
After Frances, county officials were quick to begin the long
process of securing funds for projects like those needed in
Horseshoe. At one time the Natural Resource Conservation
Services (NRCS) thought they would be able to help with the
dredging but upon further investigation into the situation they
discovered that the silt issue' was not a problem with drainage but a
navigational issue. The. withdrawal of the help from NRCS was a
big blow to county officials and they are now looking to FEMA for
help.
FEMA investigators have been to Horseshoe on several
occasions since the county, filed for help. Gathering data has been
their main goal in order for the application process to be completed

County Leaders Hear School Repor
By Mike Moore-Advocate Staff .
Over eighty of Dixie
County's business, professional,
government, and education
leaders gathered at the school,
district headquarters in Old
Town last Friday for a "working -.. .
lunch." It was the First Annual
Dixie County Education -
Business Partnership Luncheon. Wa a a I .
The meeting was far more k-*''. '.
than just "eat and greet." It was a '. .
time for County School '
Superintendent Dennis W.
Bennett to discuss many areas of
interest to the business and ,,.
government communities. The., 'W" r
session was attended by county
commissioners, Sheriff Dewey


before going before a panel who will ultimately decide whether or
not they will help pay for the dredging. While Darabi and his staff
have been quick to present FEMA with data they had on file about
the canal, the biggest issue has been the lack of data that proves
how deep the silt was before Frances. No records have been kept
on the canal depth by the county, however locals have stated that
before Frances they were able to navigate the canal, even during
low tide, and since that time they have been stranded during the
tide change.
Locals showed FEMA representatives personal pictures of just
how low, or better yet the total lack of water, is during low tide and
northern winds. While the pictures are dramatic, FEMA still needs
before and after Frances details. Reed was able to negotiate a
possible.solution to the problem. Residents are asked to fill out a
form stating that they testify to the conditions before and after
Frances. The forms will be sent along with the application in hopes
that FEMA officials will be willing to take the "word" of
Horseshoe folks as fact.
Darabi stated that once funding is secure it will take at the least,
" 30 days for mobilization of the pipeline to be complete, placement
of the pumps and then the dredging itself that will take
approximately two weeks.
For now, all Horseshoe residents can do is sit and wait to find
out their fate and that of their community.

t at Luncheon


It was a ful house as educatursa uanu uocaU uus ness.a t ere ata -
First Annual Dixie County Education-Business Partnership
Luncheon held last Friday, Feb. 11th*
Hatcher and other law enforcement officials, school board
members, State Representative Will Kendrick, and many area
business people.
Bennett discussed a wide variety of topics.' He.covered the
S" I school budget, enrollment figures, salaries, Florida's school
grading system, class reduction size, another items.
Dixie County schools participate in a variety of programs and
,, services that are run through North East Florida Educational
S., Consortium. This organization handles items for several North
Florida counties.
Rep. Will Kendrickgave Statistics for Dixie County High School graduates for 2003 and
D ixie's local businesses credit 2004 were given. A large screen showed photos and gave
for their support to area information about recent DCHS graduates. One hundred twenty-six
schools. students graduated in 2004.
Bennett pointed out that schools couldn't accomplish their,
mission alone, but need the cooperation of school families. He noted that absenteeism is a real problem
in the Dixie school district and this is an area where families can help.


Dixie District Schools
Asbestos Awareness

;- Federal Regulations (AHERA, 40 CFR 763) require that all
Dixie District School facilities be inspected for asbestos containing
materials (ACBM). The inspections are presented in an Asbestos
Management Plan. The Management Plan indicates location, type
and condition of all ACBM in the Dixie County School District
.as-well as recommended response actions for these materials.
The Management Plan was generated by Hal Kimbrell
'Ent ironmental Services in February 1989. A copy of the
SManagement Plan was submitted to the State Asbestos coordinator
.,in February -1989. The AHERA regulations require that parent,
#,Teacher and Employee Organizations be notified annually of the
availability of the Management Plan.
A copy of the Management Plan is on, file for your review at
ithe School Administrative Office at Support Services located on
the Dixie County High School campus. Copies of the individual
building inspection reports are on file in each school's
administrative office.
f The AHERA regulations require that the School District be re-
inspected every three years and the School Board has complied
?with this law. The three-year inspection reports are available for
your re% iet at each of the schools and at Support Services.
Finally, the AHERA regulations require that we inform you of
any, abatement project (scheduled response action) we have
conducted and any upcoming projects. No activities are currently
..',planned.
', If you have questions concerning these matters please do not
i: ;hesitate to contact Mark Rains at 498-6150.


'.Gov. Bush Announces Resolution
S. Go ernor Jeb Bush and Lt. Governor Toni Jennings, Monday
'.': announced a joint resolution to provide 'flexibility to the
";onstirutional requirements for class size and at the same time
i increase beginning teacher pay. Joined by Senate President Tom
i Lee and House Speaker Allan Bense, the Governor reiterated
: Florida's commitment to rising student achievement by focusing
on the needs of the student and by attracting and retaining high-
qualirn teachers.
"To fulfill our commitment to Florida's voters and maintain a
"iigh quality, education for our students, we must balance the
'importance of class size and teacher pay," said Governor Bush.
i','Teachers make a difference, and we would serve our students
i.better by focusing on attracting and retaining the quality teachers
, bI raising teacher pay."
t President Lee added, "While it is difficult to ask the voters to
lake a second look at this amendment, I am convinced a second
look is in the best interest for attaining Florida's long-term public
*education goals. Facilities are an important element of the
education equation but a classroom building is just bricks and
Smortar w without a high quality teacher inside. Today marks the first
step:in finding an appropriate balance in the education equation so
!hat we can earn the confidence of parents who expect, demand
Sand desert e the best education system for their children."
':,' Passed in 2002, original projections to implement the class size
;'. amendment by the Revenue Estimating. Conference showed
'.:pending between $20 billion and $27 billion over the 8-year
.implcmentiaton of the amendment. To date, Florida has invested
.'more than $2 billion in class size reduction, and if the Governor's
budget t recommendations are adopted, that figure will increase to
n nore than $3.8 billion. The projected total spending to implement
'',class size through 2010 is expected to exceed $22 billion.

Springhouse Quilter's Guild News
On February 8, 40 members and quests of Springhouse Quilters
met at their quilt house west of Trenton for their monthly business
meeting, show and tell, and fellowship time.
The guild' was saddened to learn of the loss' of a special
member, Evelyn Wheeles. Evelyn was a previous treasurer, vice
president and remained an active member of Springhouse until she
became too ill to attend, .Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to
Mr. Bob, husband,' Mary Robinson, sister and a member of
Springhouse, and other family members in the loss of their loved
one.
Jane Boyd, for Sunshine and Shadows, reported on members
who have been sick and have special needs. Some were Idell-
Matthews, Helen Templeman, and Onnie Mae Fowler.
Gloria Sutton presented the guild members with the monthly
block-of the-month pattern and demonstrated the*construction of
the block. A sample block of the pattern, variation of the Dresden
plate on point, was displayed.
Alice Gilbert explained the annual community project, which
will be wheel chair bags and bed holsters for nursing home
patients. Each member was requested to make at least one of the
two projects and more if possible. The completed projects are to be
turned in to Alice by the November monthly meeting.
Jan Litzinger made S'mores before the membership arrived for
all to share. Members that made a fabric valentine for exchange
swapped their valentines. This part of the program was fun and
each participating member went home with a special valentine, not
the typical ones usually received.
The fellowship was great with many Valentine goodies for all
to share and highlighted Valentine goodies.
Raffle tickets are available from Springhouse quilters for their
2005 raffle quilt. It is a pieced -black and white quilt. Anyone
wanting a chance on this quilt may contact any member to
purchase a ticket.
Lois Scott gave a demonstration on "Caterpillar binding".
This is a relatively new idea in making binding appealing to
children and attractive on quilts made for children.
The next meeting will be the monthly workshop on February
22 beginning at 9:00 AM. Anyone needing information on
Springhouse Quilters should contact Kay Fales, 490 7909 or Lois
Scott 463 2207.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
"Day And Night"
Continued from last week. I the Day of Lord, say The Day, and very
terrible for the children of the Night. Joel 2:31 say that the sun "shall be
turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the GREAT and the
TERRIBLE Day of the Lord come.'' Preachers, let us stop telling God's
people that they can just sit down in their rocking chairs and wait for a
"Rapture" to carry them off to a far-away land of fantasy where they will
eat their "pie-in-the-sky" while billions of people on earth suffer under the
heel of the devil and anti-Christ. I the Day of the Lord, say let's tell them
the truth that have been saved and called for the purpose of putting all the
forces of anti-Christ and all the hordes of hell under their feet and power
of Satan and the fear of death! This is our inheritance and this is our
destiny! LET US ARISE AND SHINE! I the Day of the Lord, say Isaiah
60:1-2 say "Arise, shine; for THY LIGHT IS COME and the glory of the
Lord is risen upon thee. For behold, the DARKNESS SHALL COVER
THE EARTH, and GROSS DARKNESS the people: But the Lord shall
arise upon thee, and HIS GLORY shall be seen upon thee and the Gentiles
shall come to thy light and Kings to the brightness of thy rising." Who is
this that is going to rise and shine as light in the midst of darkness, in a
time of gross darkness that covers the entire earth? It is none other than the
glorious Body of Christ, His Elect, the Over comer. Those children of the
Day and children of Light who have girded themselves for this hour. I the
Day of the Lord, say Paul teach the Church how to walk in order (Phil.
2:15) "That ye may be'blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without
rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye
shine- as light in the world; holding forth the Word of Life that I may
rejoice in THE DAY OF CHRIST, that I have not run in vain, neither
labored in vain." Continued next week.

Abundant Life and Living
Look where the Lord brought us. Thank God for February
Black History Month. It's that time again to contemplate,
commemorate, and honor the black innovators that made many
contributions which helped to make the U.S.A. great nation. I
revere Mary McLoud Bethune; my idol who

in Daytona Beach, Florida with a meager few
dollars, milk crates and a sewing machine.
The scientist George Washington Carver's
inventions with peanuts, sweet potatoes and
much more in agriculture have helped many.
Do you know why February was chosen as
Black History Month? Well, In 1926 Dr.
Carter G. Woodson founded Black History
Lucille Week.
Stockton Frederick Douglass, a renowned educator
and publisher, was born into slavery, and
didn't know his birth date, But he remembered his mother
called him her "little valentine" so he invented a birthday.
He knew he had been born in the teens, so he chose February 14,
1817, as his birthday.
In 1976 Black History Week became "Black History Month"
honoring Frederick Douglass. Don't forget our pioneers, do
something special for a senior citizen often.
"Love Life And Live It"

Faith Baptist Church News
What a beautiful Lord's day. Lots of wonderful sunshine, and
happy faces were seen at Faith Sunday. Bro. Jackie did and
exceptional job of delivering the messages God had laid on his
heart, the special music was special indeed and it was just a
Glorious Lord's day.
We ask your prayers for lots of our folks who are still sick and
the ones who have lost loved ones. God is the great physician and
He can and will heal in His own time. He promised not to give us
more than we can carry and He even promised to help us carry
What He does give us. So we know He will see us through.
It's Always, a blessing to have visitors and we want them to
know how much they mean to us. If you're looking for a church
home, we invite you to share ours and if you're just passing
through, we invite you back anytime. We pray that you felt
welcome and loved and that you'll come again soon.
Remember this week to pray for,a friend or loved one, make it
a point to invite someone to Sunday school and church with you
next Sunday. God will surely bless you. We look forward to seeing
you again next week.

Calvary Temple Church News
Calvary Temple rejoices at the opportunity to serve the Lord.
Sunday we were wonderfully blessed to baptize people in water.
The miracle of salvation is still the greatest miracle of them all.
Two of these people were above seventy years of age, which
makes it even more of a miracle.
The Friday night prayer meeting between several different
churches went wonderful. No bells and whistles, just in the
trenches of prayer as we prayed for our area. Next months prayer
service will be held at "New Beginnings." It is located four miles
before you reach Horseshoe Beach. Hope you will join us! II
Chronicles 7:14 is still true!
GOSPEL SING AT CALVARY TEMPLE! The popular and
anointed group "Heartland" will be with us Sunday evening
February 20th beginning at 7:00 pm. Southern style gospel with
many of the old and beautiful hymns. We would love to have you
join us for an uplifting evening of spiritual renewal.

The Word Made
Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
' I the son of man, day a new
Ecclesiastical History must be
written, because now is the Lord's
Advent predicted in Matthew 24.
The church was different before the
Council of Nice, as long as the
Apostles Creed was in force. It
became changed after the Council of
Nice, and still more after the
Athanasian Creed was composed. I
the son of man, say the books are to
be enumerated with was written,
fomin the beginning to the present
4ay. The writing there is such, that it
shines brightly before those who
believe in the Lord and in the new
revelation; but it appears dark and
Of no consequence to those who
deny them, and who are not in favor
of them on account of various
external reasons. The cardinal point
of doctrine respecting the Triune
3od and the Lord was subverted in
the church especially by the dogma
of tree Divine persons from eternity.
I' the son of man say the idea of
common people of the Divine
Trinity, is that God the Father sits
on high, and His son at His right
Band, and that they send the Holy
spirit to men. The idea of the clergy-
in respect to the Trinity is, that there
are three persons, each of whom is
God and Lord, and that to the three
there is one and the same essence.
The idea of the wise among the
clergy is, that there are three.
communicable properties and
qualities; but by three persons are
meant what are incommunicable.
There is a Divine Trinity; from the
sacred scripture and from reason.
From a trinity of God's is necessary,
and thus a Trinity of a person, is in
God incamat, or in Jesus Christ.
This is confirmed from the Sacred
Scripture; and also from reason,
since there is a trinity in every man.
The Apostolic church never thought
of a trinity of persons, as is evident
from their Creed. I the son of man,
say a trinity of Persons was first
invented by the Nicene Council. It
was derived there from into the
churches after that time, even to the
present time. That trinity of Persons
has inverted the whole church, and
has falsified each and all things
there of. All say that it is beyond
comprehension, and that the
understanding is to be held under
obedience to faith. I the son of man,
say what is "a son born from
eternity?" In the Lord there is a
Trinity, and in the Trinity is Unity.
Love you. Continued next week.

Take The First Step. Get Screened.
'(NAPS)-Learning about adult Attention-Deficit/
Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may help people better
recognize the condition in fam-
ily members, friends, and even
themselves. '"'
Adult ADHD includes symp-
toms such as the inability to
concentrate and sustain focus,'
disorganization, restlessness, ;.
difficulty finishing projects, ..
and losing things. Sound famil- '
iar? Consider, "/ -
0 Do you often lose track -.:
of time when you have a dead-

O Are you having trouble organizing the demands of your
home and work life?
0 Do you often feel like you're not living up to your full
potential?
Everyone struggles with relationships, organization and
deadline issues once in a while, but for the estimated 8 mil-
lion Americans with adult ADHD these are constant, daily
battles that started in childhood.
Eighty percent of adult sufferers are undiagnosed. If you
think you may be one of them, take a simple six-item screener

There was an awful accident. It
was sad to hear the driver ask the
sheriff, "Who am I? Where did I
come from? I don't know where
I'm going."
Have you wondered where you
came from? You came from God.
You're someone He loves. He has
a wonderful work for you. But He
can't guide you unless you accept
His government.
Have you wondered where
you're going? Back to God. But
you'll face Him as Savior or Judge.
Then you'll spend eternity with the
Lord or in the Lake of Fire.
Aren't you asking, "How do I get
to heaven?" Through Christ. He
says, "I am the way." Say you'll
take Him, won't you?

Varsi; Head Coaches J'. I.'Ir.I.- rt3nr
"Coach Whitt" and George Anderson "Coach A"
.iiong .v r Assistant Coach Joel Ward, stated that
their players were ready to meet the competition
which will include teams from Hawthorne,

Prior to Satur 's .:-rpe -h.rm was a host of
people who worked hard eerting the field ready.
However the pride and joy of the teams and
coaches this year is the new Field House. "No
longer will the guys have to change clothes out of
the vehicles", stated Coach Whitt. Thanks goes
out to Mark Rains who heads Dixie District
Schools Support Services and his staff for all the
work they did towards the preparations. A big
"THANK YOU" is extended to Cross City
Correctional's Thomas Driggers and Warden


David Farcas for the field work, paint and lockers
in the field house completed by inmates.
Saturday's games while light-hearted, proved
to be great practice for the. players and a reality
check for alumni as they discovered they aren't
as agile as they once were. Some even
remembered old injuries when they began to talk
to them. But the old guys did a great job and their
skill and experience proved to be a great learning
tool for the younger Bear's team.
Playing this year are Varsity: Duane Cannon,
Adamn Lord, Kevin Lamar, Kenny Chattenbury,
Trevor Royal, Justin Ward, Miles Harris, Declan
Moeller, L.B. Cravey, Aaron Anderson, Kurt
Skelly, Gary David Pinner, and Jacob Motes.

Osteen, Taylor Wilkerson, Grant Fowler, Sidney
Dunning, Colton Richardson, Buddy Philmon,
Tyler Music, Jason Wiles and Korde Osteen.
GO BEARS!


Quarter Worth $1000 Bucks!
Better check your pockets this morning. A mistake in the
minting process for quarters issued last year is driving coin
collectors wild! The coin in question is the Wisconsin quarter, part
of the U.S. Mint's ongoing "50 State Quarters" commemorative
series. Minted in 2004, it bears the image-of a cow, a wheel of
cheese, and a half-husked ear of corn. However, it was the
magazine Coin World that first reported, something peculiar about
the cheesehead coins -- they aren't all uniform. At least two
versions have been minted with noticeable -- if ever-so-slight --
variations from the official engraving. The variation involves the
placement of the leaves surrounding the coin's ear of corn. A few
quarters that rolled out appear to have too much husk on them.
Coin freaks have dubbed the two varieties "Extra Leaf Up" or
"Extra Leaf Down." Coin World says the unusual coins have raised
lines along the left side of the ear of corn on the reverse that some
say resemble leaves. So what to do ifyou've got one? Get that baby
on eBay. They're drawing bids up to $1500 bucks!

Buddy Martin's Weekly Sports Commentary

Phil and Tiger Now

Have A Rivalry
By: Buddy Martin, Sun-
Herald
At long last, professional
:. golf is developing a rivalry
between two premier
players. Now if we can only
get Phil Mickelson and
Tiger Woods to show up on
the same week when they're
both at the top of their
Buddy Martin game!
The good news is
that Woods appears to have resurrected his game
just in time to challenge a surging Mickelson.
And Mickelson has dispelled any notions about
him losing his touch following last year's Masters
win and equipment change.
That was evident after his round of 60 in
the FBR Open and subsequent win last weekend
and his fast start at the AT&T, which Tiger
skipped.
It's true that Vijay Sirigh smoked them
both last year with nine victories, but given his
age, Singh isn't like to keep up that pace.
So we have a rivalry, but unlike when
Jack Nicklaus battled Arnold Palmer, and then
Lee Trevino and then Tom Watson, the PG.A
Tour fields are far too deep for a handful of
players to dominate.
At the end of the year, I think Tiger will
overtake Mickelson and be on his way toward
breaking all the records in the game over the next
decade. Believe it or not, however, Tiger turns 30
on Dec. 30.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Given the Tennessee Titans' affection
for bloodhounds, shouldn't the
nickname of the Titans' offense become
the "Chow Hounds" after the hiring of
Norm Chow as offensive coordinator?
2. Please give me a minute and let me
check the videotape before I reflect on
and the NCAA's recommendation for
football instant replay in 2005.
3. I salute both Dan Marino and Steve
Young as newest inductees into the Pro
Football Hall of Fame and especially
Young, who was one of the few athletes
to Write me a thank you letter for a
column I wrote.
4. Could somebody please finish this
column for me while I try to keep from
barfing in the huddle?
5. The NBA lost two excellent players last
week with the. retirement of three-point
shooting star Reggie Miller and the best
power forward the game has ever seen in
Karl Malone.
Short Stuff
Talk about your cupcake 2005
schedules: After opening at Florida State, the
"Miami Hurricanes play just three competitive
;teams in Clemson (away), Colorado and Virginia,
with such heavyweights as South Florida, Duke,
Temple, Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Wake
Forest in between ... FSU draws four of those
ACC foes, but has to also play Maryland, N.C.
;Staie and at Boston' College, with the Seminoles'
only breathers as The Citadel and Duke as well
'.as at Florida... In his first year at Florida, Urban
NMe:,er starts off-Broadway with Wyoming and
-Louisiana Tech before playing host to Tennessee
- plus the Gators have to go. to Alabama, LSU
:and South Carolina.

Another blonde joke
A blonde woman speeding in her little red
sports car was pulled over by a. female police
officer, also a blonde.
The cop asked to see the blonde's driver's
license "What does it look like?" the blonde
driver finally asked. The policewoman replied,
"It's square and it has your picture on it." The
driver finally found a square mirror, looked at it
and handed it to the policewoman. The blonde
officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back
saying, "Okay, you can go. I didn't realize you
were a cop."
Spurrier's DNA a factor
According to Peter Kerasotis of Florida
Today, Urban Meyer chose. Florida over Notre
Dame because of the success Steve Spurrier had
during his 12 seasons coaching the Gators,1990
through 2001."I saw the '90s and what was going
on down here," Meyer said. "I don't .think there
was a coach in the country who wasn't envious,
or who didn't want to be here. I want a team that
plays with that same passion, that same swagger.
I embrace that tradition. If the other school had
had that this past decade, I probably would've
gone there."

Leftover Super Bowl
Factoids & Questions
1. Since 1992, .New England has posted
two of the three lowest-scoring victories,
including the lowest 20-17 over St.
Louis.
2. Which team is the more likely to three-
peat, Southern Cal or the Patriots?
(thanks to Dan Back of WAMR)
3. The Eagles are now tied for next-to-last
in all-time Super Bowl standings at. 0-2
with the Bengals and just ahead of the- 0-
4 Vikings and Bills.
4. They're now calling Patriots QB Tom
Brady "Mr. February," since he has
three Super' Bowl victories and two
MVPs during that month and almost
won a third last Sunday.
5. How impressive were MVP Deion
Branch's 11. receptions? They tied a
Super Bowl record held jointly by Jerry
Rice of the 49ers in XXIII and Dan Ross
of the Bengals in XVI.

Lady Bears in Regional Hoops Game Tonight
By Mike Moore-Advocate Sports
The Lady Bears won the right game. Dixie County's girls' basketball team took its sparkling 17-4 regular season record into the
district Class 3A tournament last week. The team had to win the first game to stay alive and advance. The top two finishers in district
play move on. After the district level, it's one loss and a team goes home.
The Dixie squad beat Williston 47-40, last Thursday, in their tournament opener in Dunnellon. The Lady Bears led by as many as 20
points during the second half and won easily. Vanessa Hollis scored 20 points and Deidre Godbolt had 11 in the Thursday victory.
-The win put DCHS into Saturday's title game against West Port; a school with three times the enrollment of Dixie. In a hard-fought
battle, the Dixie girls game up three points short, falling 52-49. West Port's five-point lead at the end of the first quarter was the biggest
by either team during the close game Godbolt scored 14, Hollis 11, and Katrise Kirkland hit for nine points in the loss.
The Lady Bears now travel to Brooksville for tonight's regional quarterfinal contest against nature Coast High School. The third-
year school is ranked at number ten in the state and sports a 25-2 record. If Dixie County wins, they will play again on February 22. If
they lose, the season is over. Tonight's game is at 7:00.


Fastpitch Speed, More Speed, and
By Mike Moore Advocate Sports
The game changed several years ago, or rather the schools in
Florida changed games, and as a result, numerous college
scholarships are available to girls who play fastpitch softball.
'Florida high schools played
slowpitch softball for many
"years, but changed to the
i.' fastpitch game around 1985.This
was done in an effort to keep
': ,* pace with, the college teams that
had already moved to the other
style of softball. Sine then,
players who excel at the speed
game have been able to earn a
full ride through college playing
fastpitch.
And there is another dream
S for those who play fastpitch. In
':--'" 1996 in Atlanta, and 2000 in
Australia, and 2004 in Greece,
the sport was included in the
Olympics. The U. S. women
took the gold medal all three
times. In 2004, the American,
team completely dominated
other strong clubs,, going
undefeated and outscoring
opponents, 51-1.
The Americans were
supposed to be facing tougher
and tougher challenges
worldwide, especially from
Australia, Japan, Canada, and
Erica Sheppard gets set to China. But the 2004 Games
throw a pitch proved the Americans are still
"Top Guns."
The Olympic Team, is of course, quite a difficult dream to
attain. There are 18-20 roster spots and the competition starts with
over 50,000 young ladies.
Just what is this game of fastpitch (called fastball in Canada)
and how is it different from the slowpitch version? There is no.
question that although similar, they are distinct games. Those who
come out to watch the Lady Bears of DCHS should know what to
look for, so here are some items to keep in mind.
Of course the difference starts with the pitching. All softball
pitchers throw underhanded. A fastpitch pitcher uses the windmill
motion, or perhaps the old 'slingshot." delivery, overpowering
batters from a very close distance. Colleges now use the 43 foot
distance, but even with this change,'the pitchers are still the "aces."
A. fastpitch thrower uses three basic pitches -, a rise ball, which
Fastpitch softball is another door to a college education.

Scholarships
breaks upward, a drop, which
tails downward, and a
changeup, which is an off-speed
pitch.
Fastpitch is correctly
named. Radar guns have
clocked female pitchers at some
amazing velocities,, sometimes
up to 65 mph. Several male
pitchers have been clocked in
the high 90s and a few, who
pitch for the topflight teams,
have been known to fire at over
100 mph.
Batters are allowed to bunt
in fastpitch. They also may use
a slap-and-run move, chopping
the ball onto the hard dirt
infield and sprinting for first
base. Many batters -hit left-
handed, putting them one step
closer to first base than a right-
handed hitter would be. There

are many close plays at first as runner and ball often arrive at about
the same time.
Baserunners may steal, leaving the base after the pitcher has
released the ball. Base leadoffs are not permitted. Fastpitch softball
has been described as speed and more speed. Nothing could be
more true.
Nine players are in the field as in baseball, but unlike the 10-
player slowpitch game.
In addition to high school and college teams, there are several
hundred "club teams' in Florida, at many age and skill levels.
These squads play in tournaments and leagues are usually affiliated
with the amateur Softball Association or the National Softball
Association or both.
Several of these teams have hefty budgets, with sponsors and
parents paying for uniforms, travel, equipment, insurance, and
other items.
The sport is big-time with magazines, ;ebsites and newsletters
keeping participants and fans informed. Sales of softball items run
into the millions of dollars.
Richard Ryals, one of Florida's top umpires and a fastpitch
player and manager, says the speed game is great. "Kids who learn
fastpitch skills can have a great time with this sport," said Ryals.
"They can also play the sport for many years, and of course girls
have a chance for college scholarships."
The season is set to begin for the Lady Bears. Coaches, players,
and fans are eager to hear, "Play ball."

Humble Beginnings
We've told you about a lot of successful people on this program
and many of those stories have been about women who overcame
huge odds. One of our books, entitled "Extraordinary Women -
The Things They Have Done That You Never Knew," tells a'
bunch of those stories. This one is not in that book, because we
found it after the book was published.
Her name was Juana Briones. She was a wife and mother
living in California. The mother part was fine. She loved her
children. The wife part not so good. The laws of old Mexico,
which controlled California at the time she lived there, gave
literally everything to the husband, including total control. Therein
lay the problem, especially if you had problems with your husband'
and no longer resided together. And Juana had that problem.
Suddenly alone with eight children to feed, she had to do
something. She was an industrious and hospitable woman who
cared for orphaned children and the sick. She was exceptionally
skilled in healing. But now, suddenly alone, she had to act. And
act she did. She petitioned the Mexican authorities at the time for
the right to own the property and conduct business. It took three
times, but they finally agreed.
She negotiated and purchased from the local natives a 4,400
acre tract of land to raise cattle. Then she started a community -
one that would be near a shipping port so she would have access to,
commerce. It was called the Pueblo of Yerba Buena.
Yes, I know that many women have done well, but Juana's
story is especially remarkable when you consider two more things,
First, that she wvas just about the first woman that the old-world:.1'
Mexican authorities ever let do such a thing. I mean, under the'
property and business laws of the Spanish and Mexicanr
governments, the rights of women were far from equal. Secondly-
when the American settlers started to invade California, the status
of Hispanics was greatly diminished at that time. It drove many of
them to destitution or to marginal employment.
But what's probably her most remarkable achievement is the"'
prosperity that she maintained throughout her life, despite the-
overwhelming disadvantages of her position. And prosper she did.:
She became a multimillionaire, and one of the largest ranchers in-
California. Part of the home she built still stands today and is,'
occasionally open to the public as a historical site. And you can';
visit her home.
As a matter of fact, you can visit the community she was.
beginning founder of, the Pueblo of Yerba Buena. It's a Littnl

that became Califotnia's first woman millionaire and largest"'
rancher. And if you want to visit her Pueblo of Yerba Buena, go9"

CAREFUL WHAT
YOU SAY
According to Cosmopolitan,
some things uttered can be held
against you:
You say: "I don't care
about that damn dog,"
referring to the pooch you
bought together. The law
says: If you don't have a
prior agreement as to whor
will get the dog if you
split, your ex can" use your
words as evidence to prove
that he should.
You, say: "My deepest,
darkest secret? At 17, I
was arrested for stealing,".
The law says: If your ex, is,
missing $500 and pins it
on you, he's out of luck.
Someone's past does not
create the grounds for a
lawsuit.
You say: "Honey, here's
my ATM card and PIN:
Use it to pay for our trip."
The law says: If your ex
uses the info to buy
anything other than the,
vacation, you can have him,
charged with a Icriminal
offense.
* You say (to 10 ;of your,
closest friends): "Matt has-
the smallest penis I've ever
seen." The law says: If he'
finds out that you've been
making fun lof his'
manhood -- and can prove-
that you've exposed him to
ridicule with your remarks
-- your ex can sue you for
slander.
* You say: "Don't worry, I'll
help pay your bills until,
you find a better job." The
law says: A financial
promise like this is not
binding in court unless he
makes a promise in return,.
but watch what you agree,

Suwannee

Audubon
Saturday, February 19,
Suwannee Audubon is
sponsoring a nature field trip
into Taylor County's Hickory
Mound Wildlife Area. Some
naturalists compare the marshy
vistas at Hickory Mound with
South Florida's sawgrass
Everglades. The general effect
is similar.
Participants in the field trip
can expect to see a wide
variety of water birds, both
freshwater and saltwater
species. Eagles nest here,
ducks stop here, egrets catch
fish and crabs here.
Kingfishers decades ago for
the purpose of attracting and
helping to promote waterfowl.
The idea proved successful.
There is a three-story
observation tower for getting a
panoramic view of the watery
march alive with birds and
critters. It's an ideal vantage
point for spectacular
photography.
Field trippers are to meet at
10 am Saturday at the open
area next to the rock pit on the
right just after turning lift at
the Hickory Mound sign. They
should bring water, food and
insect repellant. The field trip
will last three to four hours.
This is about 17 to 18 miles
Northwest of Perry in very
wild country off U.S. 98. Both
members and the public are
invited. For further
information call SuwAud at

Big Olustee Reenactment Takes Place this Weekend
By Mike Moore Advocate Staff
Each February several thousand people gather in the cool pinewoods of North Florida to participate
in or observe a reenactment of the largest Civil War'battle in Florida.
It is at a place about 15 miles east of Lake City and not far from the busy lanes of 1-10 and US 90.
It is called Olustee.
Over 2,800 men became casualties in the lonely spot. Since there were only about 12,000 soldiers
involved, Olustee ranks as one of the war's bloodiest battles when the numbers are figured.
This year's event runs from Thursday, February 17, through Sunday, February 20. The actual
conflict took place on February 20, 1864. Dixie County people have taken part in the past.
In early 1864, Union forces were attempting to cut off Florida from the rest of the Confederacy.
The state was sending men and supplies, mainly salt and beef, to Confederate armies in other areas.
The northern troops wanted to recruit men for their own units as well and hoped to get the sparsley-'
populated state back into the Union.
As the invaders moved along through the Florida interior, they were met by a force of about 5,000,
Florida and Georgia troops. The battle raged for several hours and the Union army finally broke and
headed back to the coast at Jacksonville.
The area is now a state historic site. Although visitors come throughout the year, it is this time in
February when the small place comes alive. Visitors arrive from many places, some coming to see the
uniformed participants and others to load and fire and be a part of the action. Set-up begins Thursday
with activities running through Sunday evening. The reenactment goes along with a parade and other
activities in nearby Lake City. There will be artillery firing, arts and crafts, entertainment, a memorial
service, a concert, and even a costume ball. For more information call (386) 758-0400.

Dixie County JROTC Brings Home the Trophies


Back row (left to right) Shayne Missildine, Anthony Escobar, Anthony Smith, James Smith. Front row (left to right)
David Masel, Casey Shyer, Brian Gonzales, and Justin Mullins.
On Saturday the 5th of February, 18 highly motivated DCHS JROTC cadets traveled'to Bell High
School to compete in a multi-school "Brain and Brawn" competition. The contest had three events.
The "Brain" competition was a jeopardy style quiz of JROTC curriculum knowledge. Each school's
team consisted of three cadets. The Dixie "Brain" team members were Cadet Captain James Foster,
Cadet Lieutenant Zach Taylor, and Cadet Sergeant Nicole Lutz. Our team came in fourth place in a


hotly contested struggle.
The "Brawn" event consisted of
U.S Army Physical fitness test.
The test has three events, the
push up, sit up, and the two-mile
run. The Dixie team was led by
Cadet Lieutenant Gerardo (Bob)
Godoy, with Cadet Lieutenant
Uriah Boyer, Cadet Lieutenant
Amanda (ShqrtRound) Kelley,
and Cadet Sergeant First class
Arianne (AG) Gamer. This
team did exceptionally well in
the competition and brought
home the third place trophy.
The drill event was for first year
cadets only. The Dixie County
Squad commanded by Cadet
Corporal David Masel with
Cadet Casey Shyer, Cadet Brian
Gonzales, Cadet Ajithony
Escobar, Cadet Justin Mullins,

Congratulations you are all WINNERS!


FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
S1 State Changes In
FCAT Adds Pressure
SMajor changes to. how
school grades are calculated are
adding extra pressure to
Students taking the Florida
SComprehensive Assessment
S-. ",: -*' Test this year. The minimum
S....... passing score for the writing test
Superintendent of Schools has been increased from a 3.0 to
Dennis W. Bennett a 3.5. Historically, this portion
of the FCAT is where students
receive the most points toward the state-assigned school grades.
The year-to-year change in test scores of students with
disabilities and those who speak limited English will also be
factored into school grades this year.
These modifications are expected to cause schools to lose about
:14 points on average. This means that schools who are struggling
because of many socio-economic conditions within their county
could see the school grade drop this year.
Fourth, eighth and tenth grades have already taken the writing
test this year. Reading, math and science portions of the test will
be administered in early March and other students will get
involved.
: School grades will be announceddthis summer. Schools that
score A's are rewarded with cash bonuses. Those who fail face
sanctions.
School grades are determined in part by the percentage of
students earning the minimum writing score. The State Board of
Education is expecting a 10-point drop in overall school points
because the writing standard is higher.
To put Florida standardized testing in line with requirements of
the federal No Child Left Behind Act, the progress of exceptional
education and limited English proficiency students will factor into
school grade calculations. The state had allowed many of these
students to be exempt. The Dixie School District has a large
number of the special needs ESE students which will certainly
impact our school grades. The state expects the change to cause
schools to lose four points on the average.
Students with emotional or developmental handicaps or
learning disabilities generally have a harder time meeting regular
academic standards.
With the tougher standards of writing requirements moving
from a 3.0 to a 3.5 and our students with disabilities and limited
English being counted in the school grading formula this year, we
certainly will be challenged to meet the fast pace upward spiral
achievement set by the state.

Rotarians Gather for Gala Evening at Putnam Lodge


The Putnam Lodge was the perfect setting for
the Dixie County Rotary Club's Centennial
Celebration of Rotary International. Members
and friends gathered on February 5 to enjoy
fellowship and dinner.
Rotary had its start in Chicago, on February
23, 1905, when Paul Harris, a young lawyer,


District Governor Ivan Johnson presents Martha
Jenkins with Paul Harris Fellow designation.
invited several of his business associates to come
together weekly to share ideas, support each
other and enjoy fellowship. The concept of
Rotary quickly spread, first to California, then to
cities and towns across the country, to Canada,
and now around the world.
Rotary quickly developed into an
organization of service, promoting goodwill, and
fellowship throughout the world. In fact, it was
the first service organization after which many
others are patterned. Today there are over
31,000 clubs worldwide.
The Dixie County Rotary Club is just one of
those many clubs. Meeting weekly at the
Carriage Inn, the members strive to live up to the
4 way test, and provide service in each of the 4
avenues of service: club service, community
service, vocational, and international service.
The evening started off with a gathering time
and hors d'oeuvres. Following the Pledge of
Allegiance and Invocation by Fred Koberlein,
Elaine's Catering presented a d dinner of baked
pork loin with mushroom sauce, roasted potatoes,
vegetables, and a selection of desserts. Master
of ceremonies for the evening, President Elect
Anne Hodges, introduced guests, including
District Governor, Ivan Johnson and his wife
Marcy, from Tallahassee, and the Assistant
District Governor Rich Wisdahl and his wife


.Natalie from Mayo.
In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of
Rotary International, each club has been
challenged to engage in a community service
project within their community. Cindy Anderson
explained the status of the Dixie County, Rotary
Club's project, of providing benches along the
Greenway between Cross City and the Suwannee
River. The metal benches, with a blue plastic
coating and the name "Rotary" emblazed on:the
back are awaiting, the final selection of sites
before being installed.
Fred Koberlein, Ray Hodges and Anne
Stanley provided toasts to Rotary's Centennial,
with Anne Stanley capturing the prize for the best
toast arid Fred Koberlein coming in second.
The group enjoyed some light-hearted
moments of frivolity as Anne Stanley passed out
"grades" to Rotarians present. While all
"passed" with flying colors, the "teacher's"
comments revealed her wit and special insight
about each Rotarian. This was followed with
presentation of door prizes ranging from
beautiful platters and centennial desk sets from
Badcock's to useful and ridiculous prizes.
A special time of remembrance followed is
the club paid tribute to long time member Ray
Jenkins, by honoring his wife Martha, with the
designation as a Paul Harris Fellow. Current
Paul Harris Fellows, Ray -Hodges, Cidy
Anderson, Anne Hodges, Sheila Frierson, and
Marshall Clements, joined District Governor Ivan
Johnson at the podium as he made the
presentation. In recognizing Martha Jenkins as-- a
Paul Harris Fellow, the club has made a tangible
contribution to the Rotary Foundation, in her
honor and in memory of Ray Jenkins, our Mr.
Rotary.
Following a gracious introduction :by
Assistant District Governor, Rich \\'isdahl,
District Governor Ivan Johnson presented a brief
review of Rotary throughout its 100 year liie,
reminding us of the milestones through the years
that have made Rotary the effective worldwide
service organization that' it is today, and
challenging us as Rotarians to make the next 100
years even more remarkable.
Special thanks to all who made the evening: a
delight affair: Fred Sabback, celebration
chairperson, Hayward Anderson and Cinidy
Anderson, door prizes, Anne Stanley decorations.
Elaine's Catering for the delicious dinner, and'to
Ardith Eagan for opening the Putnam Lodgei Sr
our celebration.

Local Feed Store
Under New
Management
By. Terri Langford- Staff Writer
Jenkins Feed Store has been a
j1andmark in Cross City for many
years, providing folks with
farming and gardening supplies.
On November 29nh, 2004 the
Jenkins' family sold their ." "
.business to Garry and Patty '
Lamb who hail from Kissimmee, -
FL, who say they are excited to .. .
be here and are looking forward ., :
to becoming part of our .. .. .
community. P; *,
'A seventh generation Florida .., .'
Cracker family, Garry stated they \
moved from their south Florida .'. '
home in order to escape the
tremendous growth in that area. '
.My wife and I wanted to live in '... 'i .
the same peaceful atmosphere
that I grew up in," Lamb stated. .. .
The "country life" was so
inviting they brought their
daughter Dana Ogden and her A
two children Brooke, 8, and
Jason 7, who are helping run the C
newly acquired store. Leaving
behind to carry on the family. : '.

Garry, Jr., wife Billie Jo and The Lamb Family- (back, 1-r) Dana Ogden, Garry Lamb, Sr., and
their four children. Patty stated Patty Lamb. (front, l-r) Brooke and Jason Ogden.
that it is hard not being able to
see her other grandchildren, Trae, 7, Tyler, 5, Tanner, 2 and the littlest Lamb, Madison, 1. However,
even Patty loves her new home here in Dixie and looks forward to their visits.
The Lambs' currently are residing in Jena, but are actively looking for a place here in Cross City.
Before moving up here their first priority was to find a good church, which they found at the First
Baptist Church of Steinhatchee. In fact, Garry teaches the young adult Sunday School class there.
As business owners the Lambs' have joined the Dixie County Chamber of Commerce. If you look
'on the Bear's baseball field you will see that one of their signs reads "Garry Lamb's Feed Store". "We
-moved here to be a part of the community, including supporting area youth programs," Garry noted.
Stocking the store is the first thing the new owners have been concentrating on with products
.customers have asked for. Coming soon will be Sir John's Dog Food, a big request from locals.
Currently they have over-the-counter animal medicines and shots. Of course they carry FRM feeds as
.well as wild and domestic birdseed: Seasonal flowers and plants are already arriving and they have
garden tools, equipment and fertilizers to help with the planting. Right now you can get your seed
.potatoes aid onion sets.
New to the store is pump repair and water conditioning sales and service. Garry has over 30 years
of experience in this field. Future plans include offering a full line of fencing products.
Garry Lamb's Feed Store is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am 5:30 pm and on Saturday
'from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm. For more information on what the store carry's you can call 352-498-
.3012, they will be happy to help you.
Look for their Grand Opening celebration, scheduled for the first week in March. Until then, stop
'by and give them a big "Dixie County Welcome."

became Artie Shaw and one of the great American clarinetists apd
a popular band leader of the 1930s and 40s. He is considered one
of the few outstanding jazz musicians whose commitment to jazz
was uncertain.
Shaw began playing in high school and turned professionali in
1925. The first sigfis of indecision came in the early 1930s, when
he retired from music for a year. Later, in 1935 at a New York
swing concert, Shaw played one of his own compositions
accompanied by a string quartet. A jazz and dance band with a
string section followed, but in 1937 he reformed his band along
more conventional lines. He rose to fame in the swing era with
such memorable hits as "Stardust," and the Cole Porter tune
"Begin the Beguine."
The Artie Shaw Orchestra, the third performance in Lake City
Community College's Lyceum Series, will perform at 7:30 p.m.,
Tuesday, February 22, at the Alfonso Levy Performing Arts
Center. Tickets are $14 general admission,' $13 seniors, and $12
for LCCC staff, students, and students from other schools. For
more information call the box office at 386-754-4340.

Gallagher Report Calls for Firefighter Safety
State Fire Marshall Tom Gallagher issued a report last week that outlines specific requirements and
standards that should be in place to protect firefighters during training exercises. "We must do what
we can to provide firefighters the hands-on training they need in the safest environment possible," said
Gallagher, who is Florida's Chief Financial Officer and State Fire Marshal. "Men and women in this
line of duty accept a certain amount of risk, but there are steps that can greatly reduce risk in training
exercises."
The Senate Banking and Insurance Committee is expected today to take up Senate Bill 108, by Sen.
Lee Constantine. A house companion bill, House Bill 69 by Rep. John Quinones, passed the House
Insurance Committee on January 25 and will be heard next by the House Criminal Justice Committee.
The legislation would gike the. State Fire Marshal's Office greater authority to regulate fire
department training exercises by adopting National Fire Protection Association standards, as well as
provide for regulation of indoor pyrotechnics.
"This legislation stemmed from the senseless tragedy that happened in West Warwick, Rhode
Island, in 2003 when countless deaths occurred due to an unlicensed pyrotechnics display. With this
bill, all indoor pyrotechnic shows would now be inspected and permitted by the local Fire Marshal,"
Constantine said. "By also increasing the mandatory level of instructor knowledge of safety and
procedures in live-fire training, the bill is protecting the lives of firefighters as well as the rest of the
citizens of Florida."
Quinones agreed, saying, "This is important not only to firefighters but to every citizen who wants
a well-trained and well-prepared fire department to respond in their time of need," said Quinones.
"This legislation not only would protect them during training but also would ensure they learn the right
procedures."
"On behalf of Florida's firefighters and citizens," Gallagher said, "I thank Sen. Constantine and
Rep. Quinones for pursuing this life-saving legislation."

Beauty & The Beast
The first picture (top) hails from our nature-lovers, Jim and Sherry
Ragsdale. While visiting Fanning Springs, the Ragsdale were able to see this
mother-baby manatee grazing on the rich plant life in the spring.
If you are a nature lover yourself, you more than likely know a little
something about the famous Manatee. If not, here are a few facts. First,
beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder with these gentle giants. They
breathe air, have hair, are warm-blooded, don't lay eggs and give milk to their
babies.
Adult Manatees'are about 10 feet long and weigh about 1,200 pound.
They never stop growing as long as they live! They have tough, grayish-brown skin that feels much
like that of an elephant. They have toenails like an elephant too! They have excellent hearing and
smelling. However their small eyes make them quit "short -sighted". Their thick paddle-like tail
enables them to move gracefully through the water.
Manatees use their big nose and short front flippers to grab plant and pull them to their mouth.
They are herbivores, meaning they only eat plants with their favorites being manatee grass (of course),
turtle grass, hydrilla, water
S. hyacinth and water lettuce. A
manatee can eat over 150
pounds of grass each day.
Manatees migrate
S- throughout the;seasons. They are
S"'. 'able to live in both salt and fresh
.'-- water, but must find fresh water
-. to drink.
4i" Florida Manatees are an
''I-."-, -'- 'endangered species with about
'2,000 of these docile creatures
left to admire.
-,... --"'.'- The bottom photo was sent
to us by John Kelley. John's
S-. email stated Blake Dickert, Will

"captured the cold-blooded
'"- '' "i -- reptile here in Cross City. All I
have to say is you are much
braver than I!
The Kelley's stated that this
somewhat mad snake was an
Oak Snake. Another name for

T this Florida native is Gray Rat
Snake.
A non-venomous snake, an
adult Oak snake averages 36-72
inches long. They are gray in
PQ color with grayish-black
blotches. They are commonly
Su' found near pinelands, hardwood
hammocks, cypress strands,
agricultural fields and residential
areas.. Well,. just about
14F- .everywhere. I'd say!
". They are more active at night
Sand are very good climbers.
Oak Snakee...fe.ed on lizards,
frogs, rodents, birds and their eggs.
Breeding season is from April-July, so beware of romancing males. Summer months, July-
September, the females will lay 5-27 eggs at one given time. Be on the look out for Mama and babies
during those hot months.
Thanks to both the Ragsdales' and Kelley's for sharing their photos with us. If you have a Dixie
Sighting to share, contact us at news2(@dcavocate.net or stop by.
