Search For Two Teens


Ends In Tragedy
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The search for two teens ended this past Monday with Florida
Wildlife Conservation (FWC) officers locating the bodies of the 14- .
year old Georgia boys near their capsized canoe approximately
eight miles offshore from the mouth of the Suwannee River.
Shawn Wilkinsen and Clay MacKemie were part of a group of
ten from Rome, Georgia who traveled to Dixie County for a spring f ."
break canoe/kayaking and camping trip. Their plans Were to paddle Aj'
along the Dixie coastline to Coon Island, approximately 4.5 miles r
from the mouth of the Suwannee River and camp there overnight.
The group would never make the small island; instead eight would
be, rescued in the early morning hours on Sunday with Shawn and
Clay still missing after straying from the group.
The group's leader followed in a motorized catamaran and
began to round up the other boaters as the weather began to change.
Shawn and Clay had apparently become separated from the group
and were nowhere in sight. The leader tried to circle the area once 0
again, but a rope -got caught in the motor, disabling it and leaving
them without power.
The rest of the group tied up to each other while the leader, .
along with one of the stronger boys, left in a canoe in search for
what looked like a light in the distance. Believing it might be
Shawn and Clay the two fought waves in excess of 3 feet and winds
in excess of 35mph with gusts near 40mph. It wasn't long before .
they had no other choice but to return to the others and call for help.
Once rescued, the group was brought into Miller's Marina where 7--
they were given beds for the evening at several of the marina's
rental unit. News spread quickly throughout the small coastal
Community and help soon arrived in the form of clothing, food and
prayers of hope.

By Terri Langford
Friday, February 25th Dixie EMS, Cross City
Volunteer Fire Department and the Florida
Highway Patrol responded to a single-vehicle
accident op US 19 just north of the Jena turnoff.
As of press time a report has not been filed by
the FHP, but witnesses stated that the couple
were traveling south when the driver apparently
lost control and ran off the roadway causing
extensive damage to their car.
While the driver was able to escape from the


vehicle unscathed, the passenger was pinned in
and rescue crews literally had to peel back the top
of the car and remove the doors in order to
remove her safely from the vehicle. With skill
and precision the "jaws of life" were used and
medical personnel carefully carried the injured
women to safety. She was transported by Dixie
EMS to an area hospital where she was treated
for her injuries.
Charges are unknown.

Progress Energy


Completes Work


On SR 349
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Construction of a $6 million dollar new 69-kiloVolt transmission
line, spanning approximately 6.2 miles along SR 349 in Old Town
was completed last week with clean-up crews carry off the remaining
trees and brush that were removed during the project.
According to a Progress Energy spokesman, the new
transmission line will meet the growing energy needs of the area,
reliability and voltage and capacity concerns.
Construction began prior to this summer's hurricanes, beginning
with the removal of trees ten feet outside of the roads' right or way.
Progress Energy purchased the additional easement from landowners
with limited-rights use. While the landowner still own the land no
permanent structures can be built within the easement. However, the
additional ten feet was necessary for crews to build the new line and
will enable them to maintain the line in the future. Progress also
purchased rights to remove so-called "danger trees" which were
located outside the new easement area, but large enough to pose a
threat to the line.
The transmission lines are round concrete poles extending
approximately 90 feet above ground, and spaced about 400 feet
apart. The line connects to Central Florida Electric's new Dempsey
substation, located 7.5 miles north of US 19 and SR 349, next to the
rodeo arena.
In addition to the removal of debris, Progress will be restoring
the landscape with the addition of wildflowers and grass.

A license to kill?
- Jack Kevorkian fans aren't going to like this, but there are some
very good reasons for not removing Terri Schiavo's feeding tube.
STerry Schiavo is a 41 year-old woman who is severely brain-
dmnaged as a result of a condition that temporarily stopped her
h..rt 15 years ago. She has since been unable to feed herself She
r nains conscious, but requires a type of life support. Her husband,
Michael Schiavo, wants her life support removed, however her
parents are contesting his efforts, as they have been since this
became a point of controversy.
:" In 2003, Michael Schiavo got a court order to have Terry's
feeding tube removed. In response to her parents' protests,
Governor Jeb Bush and the State Legislature enacted a lawy
overturning the court ruling. Recently, that law has been overruled
b yet another judicial fiat. As it stands now, Michael Schiavo may
oriter the feeding tube removed as of March 18th and plans to dc
sc& Terri's parents plan to use the scant few intervening days to at
least get another delay.
; Now we get around to why Michael Schiavo wants his disabled
vWfe's life support removed. He contends that she is in a
permanent t vegetative state." But she recognizes people. A turnip
dies not recognize people.
: He says that, before her accident, she told him that she would
ndt want to be kept alive if she were in a condition wherein she was
'$rain dead" and required artificial life support. But in the first
place, Terri .Schiavo, while severely handicapped, is not "brain
dead." And Michael Schiavo has no means of verifying his conten-
tibn that she would not want to continue living at this time ff the
choice were hers.
Something else to think about: People often make questionable
stfatements about what they would or would not do in circumstances
tliy not actually confronted.
SAt this point, perhaps we should look elsewhere for a motive. It
could be financial, since anything left of Terri's life insurance or
other assets after her medical expenses have been satisfied would
go to her husband, and that sum would have to be rapidly
dimtninishing. However, there is another factor which could belx
motivating Michael Schiavo to want his wife dead: He has a
girlfriend:;
: I quite understand that a man is not made of wood, and I'm nol
suggesting that, under the circumstances, he would have to remain
celibate or be condemned as a heathen. However, he doesn't have
tcjbe making a family at this point, either; but that's what he seems
tc be doing. One child and another on the way. Perhaps by now his
girlfriend is saying things like,' "Don't you think maybe it's time
we got married?"
SIn any case, Michael Schiavo's personal problems should not be
oir principal concern, nor should it be the courts'. The issue is
whether or not Terri Schiavo should be allowed to live, and a
decision in the negative should not occur without a plethora of
evidence to the effect that this would not constitute taking the life
o0a severely-handicapped human being who nonetheless has the


smne right to life as anyone else. I can find no such evidence in the
details of this situation.
:: Another matter of concern is the method according to which
Terri would be terminated if her husband prevails. When her
feeding tube was removed in 2003, Terry Schiavo survived bfor six
days before a law passed to replace it took effect. Try going six
days without food or water. That experience in itself had to subvert
any progress she might have been making toward a recovery.
Combined starvation and dehydration is a slow and cruel way tc
dip. If that method were used to execute a terrorist or a serial killer,
hlman rights activists would be freaking out.
:'Twenty years ago, Sarah Scantlin. was severely injured in a
traffic .accident. She was unable to speak until earlier this year.
F6rtunately, her family didn't opt to have her deprived of lifi
support. Think about it.
'Consider also that, if you let a horse or a dog die of starvation
ard/or dehydration, you could be charged with animal cruelty.
Certainly, Terri Schiavo deserves at least this much protection
under our laws.

Card of Thanks
From Suwannee Baptist Church
We live in a world that is no stranger to tragedy and none of us
are exempt. The small community of Suwannee experienced such
an event this past weekend when .Clay McKemie and Sean
Wilkinson of Darlington School in Rome, GA lost their lives in the
Gulf of Mexico. They were with a group from school on an outing
that turned bad due to unusual weather and darkness.
When news of two boys being lost reached Suwannee there
was an outpouring of effort to find the boys and meet the needs of
the family members and school group. I would like to personally
thank all who were involved but room does not permit. I would--
like to mention the different agencies: The U.S. Coast Guard and
the Florida Wildlife Commission were superb. Their efforts in the
air and on the sea were very well organized and carried out. Also
the way that they kept the family briefed, even as they delivered
the sad news of the deaths was very professional.
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and his department are also to be
commended. Sheriff Hatcher had men- on the water searching the
inland waters and creeks during the entire operation. Thanks also
to the Sheriffs Dept. chaplain, Rev. Jake Cravey and victim's
advocate Tammy Barber who assisted the families of the victims,
the other campers and their families.
Upon the news of the problem, Suwannee Motor Lodge owners
immediately opened their motel to the families at no charge so that
they could all stay together during the stressful ordeal.
During the entire time, Miller's Marina was the headquarters
for the Search and Rescue efforts by all the agencies. No cell
service in Suwannee meant that the marina's phone lines were tied
up continually. Suwannee Baptist Church was headquarters for the
families. Food, clothing, and words of encouragement were offered
in abundance by church members and folks in the community. By
the way, our phone line was tied up continually for the entire time
and we apologize if you tried to reach us and couldn't get through.
There were countless personal boats that searched the inshore
waters and creeks both north and south of the river entrance. Some
of these also carried parents and friends of the 'boys who just
wanted to be doing "something" in the search efforts.
There were so many more that deserve a "thank you" for all the
food, search efforts, encouraging words, and especially the prayers
for Clay, Sean, and their families. There is a great feeling of
community pride and Christian love that is felt in Suwannee today.
It makes one proud to be a part of this community and county.
Thank you,
Fred Edwards (Pastor)
Suwannee Baptist Church

Letter to the Editor
By Charlie Crist, Florida Attorney General
On November 22, 2004, worshipers gathered at St. Anthony's
parish in Ft. Lauderdale as was their normal routine, but this
morning would turn out to be anything but normal.
As the Mass was about to begin, masked intruders burst in,
robbed the parishioners at gunpoint and stole not only their
possessions but their sense of security. What kind of morally
bankrupt individual would choose to single out people of faith to
be crime victims? The answer is: the worst kind.
Robbery is a crime that needs to be prosecuted no matter where
it takes place, but there is an extra sense of vulnerability among
those who visit their church, synagogue, mosque, temple or other
place of worship. Just as in our homes, we expect to be safe in our
places of worship, and the law should work to ensure that safety.
While we are all potential victims of crime in our homes or in
our' cars, Florida law carries no stiffer penalty for crimes
committed in a place that many Floridians view just as personally,
their place of worship. The law provided special protections
against carjacking or home invasion robbery, but not for robberies
committed in a place that should be a sanctuary from crime.
Fortunately, thanks to the leadership of Representatives Tim Ryan
.and Jack Seiler, as well as Senator Jeff Atwater, we have an
opportunity to create the same stiff penalties for crimes occurring
in our places of worship as those that apply to crimes involving
our homes and vehicles.
I am pleased to be working with these members of the Florida
Legislature on a "Worship Safety Act" that will better protect our
citizens. This new law would enhance penalties for offenses that
involve the use or threat of physical force or violence if those
crimes are committed in places of worship. Stiffer penalties
should make criminals think twice about violating the sanctity of
our churches, synagogues, temples and mosques.
There is a need for this legislation, and it was put best by St.
Anthony priest Father Jerry Singleton when he told the South
Florida Sun-Sentinel that "It's a message that in a society, even a
crime-ridden one, there are still some things that should be
considered sacred."
Floridians have the fundamental right to worship without fear.
Let us further solidify that right by supporting this measure.

Letter to the Editor
Liberal Democrats opposing President Bush's efforts to
preserve Social Security are ignoring reality. You do not need to
be an expert to realize that Social Security has to be fixed, and if
you have children or grandchildren, you know that we have to act
now. Social Security is sound for today's seniors, but does not
have the resources to pay promised benefits to younger workers.
With President Bush's plan, younger workers would be allowed to
place some of their own payroll taxes in a voluntary personal
retirement account a nest egg they can call their own,
government can not take away, and they can pass on to their
children. President Bush has promised there will be no changes in
Social Security for those at or near retirement and no increases in
payroll taxes. The longer we wait the more difficult and costly it is
to fix the problem. That is why we must work together, Democrats
and Republicans, to strengthen Social Security for our children and
grandchildren.

Suwannee Valley Players announces its
upcoming production of "The Crucible
The Story: Written in 1952, Arthur Miller's classic play about
the witch-hunts and trials in 17th century Salem is a searing

galvanize the town's most basic, fears and suspicions. The
ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to
testify against neighbor brilliantly illuminate the destructive power
s of socially sanctioned violence.

TRAGEDY
Continued from page 1


Suwannee community gave to the group and their families. Rev.
Fred Edward of the Suwannee Baptist Church opened the church as
a place where loved ones could wait for news of the boys. Bro.
Jake Cravey from the First Baptist Church in Cross City also was
on hand to-help the anxious group cope with the wait and pray with
them for strength. John and Ann Crehoe of Suwannee Shores
Motor Lodge opened their motel to the group, giving them rooms
free of charge. Everyone wanted to help in anyway they could, but
thefeeling of helplessness was still very apparent.
Captain Burton of the FWC headed the team that would work
around the clock alongside the United States Coast Guard, local
law enforcement and a slue of local fishermen and boaters in search


for the two young men still missing. Coast Guard helicopters,
planes, jets, cutters and small boats joined the FWC boats and three
Dixie County airboats in the 50-mile radius search.
Shawn's family arrived Sunday afternoon. Several would join
the search along the coasts' marshes. Clay's family would arrive
Monday, just a few hours before they would be given the
heartbreaking news of the fate of their son and his friend, Shawn.
Cause of death is not certain, but most likely due to
hypothermia. The waters in the Gulf have been in the upper 40's,
lower 50's.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of
these young men as well as our continued prayers.

large number of dogs are kept. Akins was not sure how many dogs
are presently in the pens, but said there have been 20 animals there
recently, and the number is often about 12-13. He said there may
be five now penned up there. The animals cause disturbances at all
hours of the day and night with barking. They also create an odor
throughout the neighborhood. Akins cited City Ordinance 231,
which discusses control of animals. He asked that council members
help with the situation. He said that he has been unable to rent
property due to the conditions and some of his present tenants plan
to move.
Council members discussed the issue and directed City
Attorney Robert Moeller to write a letter to the property owner
telling him to clean up the area. And control the dogs. A privacy
fence was considered, but this would probably not solve the noise
and odor conditions.
In other business, council members agreed to make the city's
annual donation to the Little League. The usual amount is $1000.
Gary Montgomery was on hand to inform the council about the
league's need as well as improvements to the local facilities. The
season opens April 2.
City Manager Mike Cassidy. reported on several items. He
updated the council on property clean up, reported on grant
applications, and drainage work. He, informed members that work
will soon begin on the new area of the cemetery.
Moeller reported no pending lawsuits against the city.

Behold the Tabernacle of God
"Day and Night"
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, day read, Amos
5:18,20: "Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord. To what end is it
for you? The day of the Lord is darkness, and not light. Shall not the day
of the Lord be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness
in it?" Then in verse 21 the prophet goes on to say that the Lord hates their
religious activity, their ceremonies, for their worship is from the lips only
and not from the heart. I the Day of the Lord, say these are religious
people He is talking to religious people who have rejected His Word. And
in Amos 8:9 He says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord
God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the
earth in the clear day." Yes, in the day of clarity, in the bright noon day of
God's glory, they will not see, they will not understand because to them it
is a day of darkness with no light. I the Day of the Lord say Read
Zephaniah 1:14-15 tells us: The great day of the Lord is near, it is near,
and hasted greatly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress
a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a
day of clouds and thick darkness. Glory to Jesus, out of the midst of this
dark picture there will arise a people who not only will HAVE light, they
will be the light to bring this dark world out of confusion and death. Of
them Isaiah spoke when he said (58:10) "then shall thy light rise in
obscurity and thy darkness shall be as the noon day." Prov. 4:18, "But the
path of the just is as.the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the
perfect day." What can we do now? Eph 5:8 says Walk as children of
light." Rom. 13:12, "Let us there for a cast off the works of darkness, and
let us put on the armor of light. "I the Day of the Lord, say there is no
darkness in those who are called into the divine purposes of God. The
truth of God is opening up to them in ever increasing clarity and
understanding. They know one another by the Spirit, and not by the
recommendations of men. They are seeing the heresy and the danger of
the harlot system of ecclesiastical orders. They are sounding the trumpet
and sending forth the alarm to God's people to "come out of her, my
people," lest they are destroyed with her. For her false doctrines teach men
to be divided from their brethren, to hate one another, and to hope for
some fantasy that will never happen. Continued next week.

Abundant Life and Living
Romans 11:29 (KJV) states our gift and calling of God is
without repentance. We are born with our own original purpose and
divine assignment. Many of us .never find our place or enter
our calling to fulfill God's' will for us. Many
times we are so busy
trying to be like someone else or do what
others do, we forget who we are.
And every person is unique and very
special in their own God-given ways. Life is
so good, beautiful and wonderful when we
accept who we are find our place and be the
best we can be. None of us are inferior in
-- God' plan. Because God didn't create no junk.
Lucille All he made is good. The human
Stockton family is complete. It doesn't matter how
small you are, the puzzle
is not complete without you. Nothing will fit into your space but
you.;
Now you know how to live. Remember, we are his hands, feet,
eyes, voice and love. Stay blessed. We are his living words.
"Love Life And Live It"

The Word Made

."The Di'ime Trinity"
Continued from the last week. I the
son of man, say these three, father,
son, and Holy Spirit, are three
Essentials of one God, since they
are. one, as soul, body, and
operation with man are one. The
Divine Trinity, which at the, same
time is Unity, can by no means be
comprehended by any one, except
as the soul, body, and proceeding
operation with man; consequently
unless the Divine, itself which is
called the father is the Soul, the
Human which is called the Son is
-he bod. of the Soul, and the Holy
Spirit is the proceeding operation.
Therefore in the Christian Church
everywhere it is acknowledged that
in Christ, God, and Man that is, the
Divine and Human, are one person
as the soul and the body in man. I
the son of man, say the national
man knows that the soul of the son
is from the father; and that the soul
clothes itself with a body in the
womb of the mother, and that
afterwards all operation proceeds
from, both. He who knows the
union of the soul and body knows
also or may know that the life of
the soul is in, the body, and that
thus the life of the body is the life
of the soul. Consequently that the
soul lives, and therefore feels and
operates, in the body and from the
body; and that the body lives,
feels, and operates from itself
while from the soul. This is
because all thing of the soul are of
the body, and all things of the body
are of the soul: hence and from no(
other origin is their union. I the son
of man, say it is only an
appearance that the soul operates
separately from itself through the
body, when yet it operates in the
body and from the body. From
these things the rational man, who
knows the intercourse of the soul
and the body can comprehend
these words of the Lord; (1) That
the father and He are one; (2) All
things of the father are His, and all
His are the father's; (3) All things
of the father come to Him; (4) The
father hath given all things into the
Son's hand; (5) As the father
works, so the son also works; (6)
He' that sees and knows the son,.
sees and knows the father also; (7)
They who are one in the Son are
one in the father; (8) No one hath
seen the father except the son who
is in the bosom of the father, who
hath manifested Him; (9) The
father is in the Son and the Son in
the father; (10) No one cometh to
the father except through the Son;
(11). As the father hath life in
Himself, so hath He given to the
son to have life in Himself; (12) In
Jesus Christ all the fullness of the
Divinity dwells bodily. Love you,
continued next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
Although the weather outside was dismal
Sunday, there was nothiing dismal inside God's
sanctuary. Our choir. did a fine job singing
praises, as did Bro. Billy as he extolled God's
word. We enjoyed a special song by Jo Allie
Downing just before the morning sermon, and
two more by a group composed of Jody Mayo,
Aimee St. Laurent, Danny Riels and Andy
Chesser just prior to the evening message. We
really appreciate those who are willing to use
their talents for God's glory! In addition, we
were blessed with yet another baby dedication
ceremony, immediately following the morning
services, this one no less than Bro. Billy's and
Sister Penny's beautiful little granddaughter,
Chelsie Jo Beckham. God is blessing us-in so
many ways!
We got a report that the Girl's Talk Retreat at


Pickett Lake was a big success, enjoyed ver
much by the group who attended from NeA
Prospect. We urge you to mark your calendar
and be diligent in your prayers during the Wee

"Amazing Grace and Daddy"
He always had something to say, and if money he owed,
he would pay
A stranger, he never met one, and friends he would not shun
His life was complete and at the top, and in one day
it seemed to stop
For in the Gulf on Momma came a stroke, life changed,
it was like his spirit broke
Days come and went, one could watch as he became "sadly bent"
It seemed "lost thoughts" pulled him away, for you see to be still,
he could not stay
Yes, some of his ways were of poor example to us, but folks,'
you know God never made a fuss
Words I spoke of his actions I've had to repent, Jesus paid it all,
forgiveness doesn't cost a cent
To judge him "please don't" I say, for of idle words
we will surely pay
And of you must know, that many yeats ago
This man taught "his-kids" the Lord to know, yes, together they
taught each one of us to pray
Kneeling each night around the bed prayers we'd say, and
"Blessings" over meals each day
Daddy made sure each of us knew to pray, and always knew
Jesus Christ is the only way
Tuesday, the 25'1, the call came, and life would never be the same
Us "kids" with Momma to the hospital made a rush, it seemed you
felt "a loss" with each hush
He was so ill, this time it would take more than a pill-
Fof little did we know, that so soon we'd miss daddy so
Yes, a preacher, he came, but communication, it was lame
See folks, God, He had a plan, for this man of the Petty clan
A grandson, Steven on a mission he came, For God's Word,
he would claim
You see "a Prayer" was being answered so bold,
more precious than gold
The grandson with Daddy he prayed, yes, he knew the
Lord he had obeyed
Daddy repented "he made it right" yes he did, he humbled himself
and became a "Kings' Kid"
And all his sins were gone; He was on his way to a heavenly home
So don't judge this man and his days, Remember,
Jesus blood at Calvary cleared the way
Just to know yes "All is well", for Daddy he drank of .
the "Living water"
Like the woman at the well
"To God Be The Glory" the children & grandchildren
ofW. H. Petty :" "


Look!
Take a look around you: our world is a tough place to live. If
you don't believe it, just turn on one of the cable news shows
and spend a couple of hours learning about what is going on
today. Violence in Iraq, divorce, child abuse, 225,000 killed in a
matter of seconds when a wave comes ashore the list goes on
and on. We want to think that the world is a safe place to live,
but the facts say otherwise.
The truth is, our lives could be over or radically altered in a
split second. Oh, we don't think about it very often, but it is true-
nonetheless. And deep down, we know it. But even if we never
think about how fragile and temporary life is,. the facts are still
the same; whether it is today or tomorrow, one day we will
breathe our last breath.
And then what?
Since we would all agree that everyone living on planet earth
will die one day, a fair question to ask is, how do you plan to
get off this planet alive? Do you have a strategy to get yourself
out of the grave? Or do you think that when you die you are
dead like Rover, dead all over?
Jesus said about those folks who put their faith in him, "I
give them eternal life. No one can snatch them out of my hand."
If Jesus was truly the son of God, then it makes perfect sense
to surrender our lives to him and trust God to lead us through
this violent and troubled world into eternal life.

Steinhatchee Fishing Report
By Capt. Brian Smith, Gulf Stream Marina and Big Bend Charters
CK fished with Little B and me this week. I was blessed
to have the opportunity to meet him through a mutual friend, Keith
Perry from Ocala. We share a hillbilly background with both of us
spending a portion of our lives in the mountains of West Virginia
and having relatives still there. CK is a rare breed with a bold
humorous personality that is more than likely generated from the
sheer glee of still being alive. Few above ground people can tell
others they have been hit by lightening. "Boss man, is you dead?"
asked one of his railroad workers. Fewer still can say they got it
twice. "Boss man, is you dead, yet?" Twice struck! When I heard
that, I checked the clouds. Dense fog, for the moment, but I kept
an eye out all day. Then how many people have had a one-and-
half year old accidentally discharge a rifle and blow a baseball hat
off your head. A clean hole right through the bill of the cap, not a
scratch on him.
Then there are stories from the professional bull riding days.
Here's one from CK's "Hey, ya'll watch this file"... He and a
buddy had to move a 1,500 .pound bull from one pasture to the
next. "CK you get in the bed of my truck (brand new Toyota 4x4)
and I'll ease us close enough so you can toss a rope around him
and then tie it off to the bumper hitch. We'll lead that bull through
the gate," says the friend. CK lassos' the bull, ties it off to the
hitch; the plan was perfectly executed. That is until the bull
decided not'to trot along, on a leash, to the other pasture. So they
began to drag the animal by the neck. That was a bad idea. The
bull soon figured the truck was the source of all its current,
problems. It charges the truck, rams its' horns through the door on
one side then around the other side to put it's horns through the
passenger door. Each blow tilted the truck to the point of flipping
over. "CUT the rope, Cut the rope!" After $7,000 worth of
damage the bull is released back to the wild. It would have been a
world-class record catch; however, the International Game Fish
Association disqualified it because a truck cannot be used as a
fishing reel. Then PETA got wind of it through the insurance
paper work and it spiraled downhill from there. Next time, use an
older truck and one, not painted red; maybe things will go
smoother.
Anyway, it's fun to fish with people who grab life by the
horns and enjoy the moment by moment blows of living. Time is
enjoyed not merely spent. And we enjoyed sharing stories and
fishing.
The day we fished together was covered in dense fog.
Visibility, except for a few brief moments, ranged from 150 feet to
less than a quarter mile. Running a boat in 'pea soup' means
slowing down considerably and having multiple people keeping
their eyes and ears open at all times. I don't like lightening or fog.
Both are dangerous situations. Lightening will kill you. Fog will
let you kill yourself.
The water temperature was a warm 64 F thirty miles
offshore. I've found the grouper to be far less than active when
surface temperatures are 59 F or below. Warm waters are
encouraging in the wintertime.
The. first area, 62 feet, I decided to drag a four pack of
Stretch 30's through before anchoring down. That day trolling was
a 15 minute waste of time. We anchored down on a great spot I
had found trolling several years ago. It was 20 minute dud. The
next spot, same depth, made up lost time. Everyone was catching
grouper. The live bait' was a little better than the rest but frozen
herring and cut pink mouth grunt were working as well; it just took
a minute longer to hook up. After ten or eleven keeper fish we
picked up.
There were obviously fish in that area but I had a wild
hair and took us out to 72-75 feet; an area I hadn't fished in quite
awhile. The fog slowed us down. We chicken picked out to 80
feet. Each stop added a fish or two to our tally. During the
chicken picking. I held back the live bait. I was working out to an
ariberjack hangout and wanted plenty of wiggly things to offer
them. The jacks were there but none made the grade. Great fun
anyway. From there we worked our way back in to 62 feet. Some
of the spots along the way produced while others were a blank.
The seas had turned so calm that we didn't have to anchor. Not
having to drop the hook made sorting the good from the bad a lot
faster. A five-minute float by was all we needed to determine if a
second drift was necessary.
It was a fine day on the water with some great folk.
During the course of the day, I found out CK had gotten wind of
fish named goliath. I asked him if he wanted to catch it or ride it?
I explained I didn't bring the equipment necessary to reel it in. I
also explained that even with the heavy gear, you're not likely to
bring it to the surface. All that did was excite him even more.
He's coming back to take the challenge. I'll keep you posted on
the outcome of that adventure.
If you'd like to meet CK, he owns Ozzies Kamikazee's
paintball course in Ocala.
Sheepshead are starting to stagger out to the artificial
reefs. Expect to need a little patience to collect a nice mess for
diner.
Thanks for taking the time to read. Take care of yourself
and your tackle.

Buddy Martin's Sports Commentary
Urban Meyer won't lock the
doors
It's all good for Urban Meyer these days as he
prepares to launch' his speaking tour around the
state, preaching the Gospel of the Gators and
selling orange and blue futures.
There's a new day in Gainesville. Not only
does Meyer demand discipline, but he's a stickler
hfor tough conditioning and some of his "old
school" routines involve lifting bales of hay,
throwing huge rocks and
pulling sleds.
Soon we'll begin to
.^^ .^., know if the hard work is
going to pay dividends.
-. Gator spring practice
begins March 16 and lasts 14
days, culminating with the
Orange and Blue Spring
Game on Saturday April 9,
Buddy Martin which will be broadcast on
17 Gator Radio Network
stations for the first time.
Then on April 12 Meyer heads on a
whirlwind 19-city tour of Gator Clubs in Florida
and one in Atlanta, with stops in Sarasota on May
25 and in Fort Myers on May 9.
The key words coming out of Gainesville thus
far are "winter conditioning," "discipline," "old
school" and "leadership."
Several players have been chosen on the
"Leadership Committee," including center Mike
Degory, quarterback Chris Leak and linebacker
Brandon Siler. Their jobs will be to issue
'"upgrades" and "downgrades" to teammates
based on their effort, adherence to rules and
contributions to the team.
Recently, Meyer told Ivan Maisel of
ESPN.com that when he coached at Bowling
Green the rigorous workouts were designed to
"get rid of people." The door to the gym was
locked, garbage cans "for puking" were brought
in and they "got down to business."
A little extreme, I'd say, and thankfully
Meyer promises .that kind of Parris Island boot
camp won't be necessary at Florida.
"They are good players,, good kids, a good
program it's a young team that didn't finish,"
Meyer says of the Gator team which lost close
games last year to. Tennessee, LSU and
Mississippi State,
Several military terms, however, are bandied
about, including "Full Metal Jacket Friday"
which doesn't sound anything like the TGIF
parties. "You've got to either walk out or finish
the drill," said Meyer.
It's often been said that there is a different
breed of player at Florida and maybe. even
Florida State and Miami which would not
accept the drill sergeant mentality.
The Seminoles went through a siege of it in.
the early 1970s when coach Larry Jones ran off
some. 23 players, lost a grip on the program and
wound up getting fired.
Meyer, I think, is smarter than that, and
perhaps more compassionate, but we will have to
wait and see.
Already, Ron Zook's successor has healed
some old wounds and brought The Gator Nation
together. All that I've heard about the new
Florida coach from fans of every age and era has
been positive.
High school coaches have warmed up to
Meyer. The students seem to have bought in.
Nothing but good comments have come from
players. And to date, despite rigorous off-season
demands, there hasn't been any,public whining or
complaining or defections.
SThere is one more drill that must be
completed on one more day of the week, but this
one involves the coach. It's called "Satisfactory
Saturday" and it starts on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2005
at Florida Field against Wyoming. Urban Meyer
knows full well the task at hand.


Quick Jump Starts
1. Is Tiger Woods' new facial hair the result
of a) going anti-establishment; b) wanting to look
mature and intimidating to other players; or
c)because his new wife likes it?
2. Oklahoma coach Kelvin Simpson has it
right when he says coaches often have a "Father
Flanagan" mentality about trying to rehabilitate
talented athletes when sometimes it's simply not
possible to change them.
3. I hear Randy Moss rode his bike through
Grand Canyon on the way to joining the Oakland
Raiders because a rolling Moss gathers no stones.
4.Hottest NFL Rumors: That the Redskins
will send Laveranues Coles back to Washington
in exchange for Santana Moss.
5. If Jon Gruden gives Brian Griese all that
money and signs him to a long-term contract, he
might as well be signing his unemployment
papers.
Short Stuff
Last week was the anniversary of the Bobby
Knight chair-throwing incident, for which he was
ultimately fired so what's the deal with a mere
three-day suspension for Temple coach John
Chaney for his contemptuous behavior in forcing
one of his kids to act as a goon and seriously
injuring a player from St. Joseph's? ... Randy
Moss will wear No. 18 in Oakland, a number
worn by Peyton Manning, who also once mooned
some fans at Tennessee.
Nothin' but 'net
(with a little help from Buddy's
Cyberfriends)
Buddy's E-Mail Bag
Buddy, I have one (a nickname) for you.
Weird probably but definitely different. (Athletes
at) Rockford East High School in Rockford, IL.
are known as the "E-Rabs". It comes from their
school colors. East-Red and Black School.
--Bob Pellant, Punta Gorda
BOB: Definitely different. And definitely one
of a kind.
Sounds like ...

coughs.
n Flabbergasted (adj.) appalled over how
much weight you have gained
n Abdicate (v.) to give up all hope of ever
having a flat stomach..
n Esplanade (v.) to attempt an
explanation while drunk
Buddy's Believe it or Not
(but don't ask him to prove it)
1. All polar bears are left-handed.
2. Owls have no sense of smell.
3. Ostriches yawn as a group before going
to sleep.
Bumper sticker, sign or T-shirt
1. No job. No money. No car. But I'm in a
band.
2. Life is a Cabernet.
3. God gave the angels wings, and He gave
humans CHOCOLATE.
Buddy's Clipboard -
Edwin Graves, who discovered Spurrier
The man who discovered Steve Spurrier as a
star athlete in Johnson City, Tenn. died Feb. 14.
Edwin Graves, brother of Spurrier's coach at
Florida, Ray Graves, was 89. Ray, who resides in
Tampa, received a letter from Edwin, who had
seen Spurrier play at Science Hill High School.
That one discovery turned out to have a greater
impact on the Gators than any personnel decision
in UF history.

By Mike Aloore Advocate Sports
The Dixie County Bears opened the 2005 -baseball season with a tough loss, 5-4, at Hawthorne,
Tuesday, February 22. The garne ended with a Bear runner on third base, unable to score.
"I am very proud of these kids," said Coach George Anderson. They are working hard to improve,
and they played their guts out." The junior varsity squad rolled to a 14-0 win in the day's first game.
On Thursday, February 24, the teams hosted Newberry. The JV team got into a slugfest, losing 16-
15. The varsity dropped a 14-3 contest to the tough district foe.
Diamond action continues this week. Both squads will play, Thursday, March 3, at home against
Trenton. Game times are 4:00 for the JV team and 7:00 for the varsity.
Both teams hit the road Friday, for games in Dunnellon. The first pitch for the JVs will be at 4:30


and the varsity is scheduled for a 7:00 start.
Anderson is assisted by Mike Whittington and Joel Ward.



Truck Racers Head for

Bronson This Saturday
After last weekend's disappointment with the rainout at Desoto
Super Speedway for the FASCAR Pro Trucks, drivers journey to
Bronson Motor Speedway this Saturday, March 5, hoping for better
weather.
The FASCAR Pro Trucks are the newest series in the Team
FASCAR family under the direction of Troy Snipes. Snipes, a
former NASCAR official, has made the transfer to Race Director
for the Pro Trucks with ease.
"Troy is definitely an asset to our team and we. know that the

* You crack each other up -- If
you're a pair that really, sparked "

healthy future together. Not _
only are you having a blast with
him now, but also down the>'
road, that comic relief will taktO,'
the edge off any heated'
arguments. "'
* Your spats fizzle fast -- Al "F
couples clash. However, if yu-i'
can resolve your tiffs and get
over the issue at hand fairly
quickly, then you're genuinely,-,,.;
open to seeing the other's point, ;,ss
of view and moving forward,
which is the touchstone of a
tight twosome.
* You play together -- It's true.- q
what they say: If you can really' 'i
cut loose in front of each otheg,,
and don't feel the need to censor :,m
your behavior you have the .'
freedom to be yourself and, A
what it takes to stay together. n,
* You don't run hot and cold r-
When you're sizzling one
minute and frigid the next,
there's doubt in your duo. But if--
your feelings for each other'are

Monkey Baby ,
4 Sara was more than a little worried. Her husband, F.Fank, was
4 nearly completely distraught. What should have been a joyous ;)
occasion for the young couple from Cherokee, Oklahoma the
birth of their first child was fast becoming a serious worry.
SFrank and Sara had been married for a couple of years when
Frank got an offer to move from their quiet little home in the
Southwest to England. There he started to prosper, and the couple -
decided that it was time to add to the family. Sara delivered a. ,
healthy eight and a half pound baby girl, but it was clear that a few
things were'not normal. The baby was, well, strange looking. The
infant's body was completely covered with a layer of long black",'
hair. I mean everywhere. On its head, on its face, its ears, legs,'"
back and chest. As friend Thelma Keir would say upon seeing the"'
little child, it, looked like a monkey. A monkey baby. J
And there was more. The child, strange looking as it was, als'.
refused to open its eyes. For over 15 days it wouldn't take its first '
look at the world. The attending physician would even try pr3 ing:
the eyes open, only to find them rolled back in their sockets, with
only the whites visible. 4.
Now this was in 1932,; and there wasn't a lot known about '
something like this. The doctor was baffled. Sara was frantic and
Frank really didn't know what to think. How could he raise a child
like this, covered with long black monkey hair?
As the little girl grew, other things started to show up that were
a worry. She didn't even try to stand up and walk until she was,,
almost two years old, much later than normal children. She never"'
attempted her first word until nearly three. Yes, something was
wrong, but what?
What the child had was a condition called hirsutism. It is tli'
1 excess growth of hair all over the body. It can affect both men and -
women, but it's very rare in infants. But this infant had it, and her
doctor had never seen it. If you're a mother or father, just imagine
what Sara and Frank went through in those first few months,-
having a precious child who looked like a monkey. How long-'1
would it last? Would it ever go away? Was there any medication'-`
that could fix it? Many questions, few answers.
Monkey baby! That's what the little girl was called. But I d6 -''
have a happy ending to report to this true story. When the baby
finally did open her eyes, something else was different vety
different. Her eyes were violet. Some of the most beautiful eyes
ever to see the world. The hair did disappear eventually, and,-,.
when it did one of the most gorgeous faces known to the world
emerged.
It's all true folks. It's a Little Known Fact: that the little')
monkey baby, the child of Sara and Frank, did finally lose the',,
excessive body hair. And those eyes have become known to morst
of the world as belonging to one of the great beauties. They ate,..
the violet eyes of Elizabeth daughter of Frank and Sara Taylor. 'i

The Dixie County Christian
Academy (DCCA) took a trip ;,
back in time on Friday, February .. '
18, 2005 to the Civil War era
during the Battle of Olustee.
As soon as they entered the
park they were able to watch the
Union soldiers firing off a t'..
cannon. Throughout the day they r. '
met some Confederate soldiers on horseback, cooks setting up camp, and a foot solider just resting
before returning to his duties. Some of the DCCA girls helped out with the women from the "Soldiers
Aid Society" make care packages for the soldiers out in the field. Other students decided they needed
to learn how to defend themselves and went into training for sword fighting. Once the students
returned to current day Dixie County, they were full of information and pride for their country.

Micah is our seven-year-old son who suffers from autism. His story is an ongoing
one. It doesn't end with a miraculous healing yet. It is a day by day unfolding of
God's mercy and grace.

God has given us a measure of grace to accept Micah's disabilities and to love him
with an unconditional love. We are doing all we can to help him develop into the man
God wants him to be. Daily I am amazed by the miracle child that God has given to
me. Doctors can not explain my son's disability. It is simply there. It was placed on
Him by the hand of God. His siblings are building strong character through it, and
the Lord has taught us so much through his life.

We have no "miracle" story as some would see it, but day by day God gives us a
measure of.His grace to meet the trials of that day. In His time and in His way he is
using this disorder to bring honor and glory to Himself.

II Corinthians 12:9-10 says, "Most gladly therefore I rather glory in my infirmities, that
the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in
reproaches, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."


EVERYONE WELCOME!

Old Town Red Hat Chicks Travel To Suwannee


The Old Town Chicks Red Hat's met for their meeting for the month of January at the Salt Creek Restaurant
in Suwannee where the Queen Mother Sharon Fonk of Old Town informed everyone that the official musical
instrument of the Red Hat Society is now a Kazoo, of which some already had theirs and other will have theirs
soon. Of course one of the Red Hat songs was played and all joined in. Needless to say, a good time was had by
all. We also had a couple of new members join us. Also at the same time the Red Hat Ta'Moma Red Hat's of
Steinhatchee was at the Restaurant and the Old Town Chicks entertained them with our music and Kazoo's.

FCAT Fun!


The Marl

Unneuter


By Terri Langford Staff Writer

Once again the staff at
Ruth Rains Middle School
outdid themselves using their
talent and total lack of fear of
embarrassing themselves, to
help motivate students for the
FCAT. As students filled the
gymnasium the anticipation
grew, everyone couldn't wait
to see just what their teachers
had cooked up for the RMA
Music Awards.
Celebrity presenters were
the glamorously dressed but
lacking in brains, blonde duo
(much like the Simple Life
girls) played by Alexa Mills
and Jen Smith, and their little
dog too. Throughout the show
these two beauties, really
brought home the point on how
important it is to stay in school
and do well on the FCAT,
otherwise you could end up in
a blonde joke.
The opening act was The
Acre Peas, played by Donna
Mullins, Tina Leon, Pam
Music, Mar-Michael Jones and
Caresse Pridgeon. Wow these
ladies put on the moves and
had the crowd grooving to
their rendition of "Let's Get It
Started".
Next were The Superiors
singing "Ain't No Mountain,
High Enough" Lead singer,
Judith Whittington was
accompanied by her
"Supremes" Adrienne Snyder,


Jana O'Neal, and Debbie
Durham. Maybe you should
stick to your day jobs, ladies.
Kenny Chesney & Uncle
Kracker, Roger Storey and
John Thomas, got it going on
with "When The Sun Goes
Down". Some RRMS alumni
joined the hunky duo in their
grass shirts, swaying to the
music that was, thankfully,
karaoke.
Debbie Weeks brought the
house down as Nice, Nice
Baby sing "Ice, Ice Baby".
WORD...Debbie!
Superman, aka Mike
Thomas, flew in as
"Kryptonite" played in the
background. The man of steel,.
definitely stole the show when
he flew up to the basketball
hoop.
Tim McGraw and Nellie,
played by Robert Yarnell and
LB Cravey had the girls
swooning in the blenchers as
they sang, "Over and Over."
Yep, they were lookers girls.
The Clean Up Crew from
the Bears Percussion Band,
rocked the room with their
cadence played on a variety of
trash cans. However, their
performance was far from
being trashy. WOW!'
Tina Tuner got rave
reviews from the students,
especially after they realized
that .it was none other than
Principal Beverly Baumer.
Lip-sinking to "Simply The


See The Advocate

For All Your

FAXING NEEDS!!


Best," Tina wanted to get
across to students that doing
their best was all we can ask
for.
Then finally came in the
form of some interesting
looking cheerleaders. Headed
up by alumni-cheerleader
Elizabeth Quincy, Coaches
Mike Thomas, Richard
Whittington and John Thomas
put on a show to the tune of
"Who Let the Dawgs Out".
One word of advice
girls...Nair!
The show did its part in
relieving some pre-FCAT
stress.


Spaying and en ring
helps dogs (and cats) lead'
longer, healthier lives. Your dog
is less likely to run away or get into
fights. Or mark his territory all over your favorite
chair. And when you choose to neuter your dog
(or cat), you'll be helping to solve the terrible
problem of dog and cat overpopulation. Our non-
profit organization works with veterinarians near
you to provide affordable spaying and neutering.

Celebrates 104th Birthday


Governor Bush Announces
Education Reform
Building on the success of the' A+ Plan for Education,
Governor Jeb Bush and Lt. Governor Toni Jennings Ist week
announced an education reform package focused on providing
teachers with the tools and resources needed to provide Florida's
students with a high-quality education. Joined by bill sponsors
Senator Evelyn Lynn and Representatives John Stargel and Trey
Treviesa, the Governor outlined his plan that includes increased
teacher pay, differential pay for teachers, principal leadership

development programs, an online classroom management system,
and an expansion of school choice.
"Teachers are the backbone of our educational system and their
dedication and commitment should be recognized and rewarded,"
said Governor Bush. "Focused on teachers, this bill provides them
with administrative and professional support that will enhance their
careers and give them the tools they need to succeed."
Lt. Governor Toni Jennings added, "Under the Governor's A+
Plan for Education, Florida's students have seen tremendous
academic gains thanks in large part to our teachers the heart and
soul of our education system. Building on a solid foundation,
these reforms will benefit teachers in a variety of ways and
ultimately enhance student performance."
In 1999, the Governor's A+ Plan for Education focused on
setting high standards for student achievement and strengthened
accountability. Since then, the percent of schools earning an "A"
or "B" has increased from 21% to 64% and more students than
ever are reading on grade level. By focusing on teachers, these
reforms will ensure student achievement continues to rise.

Girl Talk III A Great Success!
February 25 and 26, 2005 was the date for the third annual
GIRL TALK RETREAT at Middle Florida Baptist Assembly
Grounds, near Mayo, Florida. More than 105 people gathered to
enjoy the event, "Becoming God's Girls Forever." The event began
at 6:00 p.m. on Friday with registration in the fellowship hall.
The participants erijoyed a delicious supper supplied by First
Baptist Church of Cross City, before beginning their evening
praise and worship time in the chapel. Nancy Holifield opened the
session in prayer and welcomed the group. Katrina VanAemram
served as the worship leader for the event. Praise choruses arid
songs of worship willed the chapel as the girls and their leaders
entered into worship. '
Nancy shared a lesson based on the Bible Character, Miriarir;
sister of Moses. After the chapel time, the group began a series bf
workshops which were continued the next day. Workshop leaders
were: Virginia Martin, speaking on "Inner Beauty"; Cindy
Anderson, speaking on "Friendships"; Michelle Riels, speaking
on "Choices"; Suzanne Raker, speaking on the story of the Bible
Character, Ruth; Angie Land, speaking on "Worship"; and Nan&y
Holifield, sharing with the adult leaders on "The Priorities of a
Leader and a Parent."
Later Friday evening, the group gathered in the chapel td
enjoy the testimonies of Sarah Durham and. Kaylla Futch. Angie
Land, also presented a monologue based on the Bible character
Mary Magdalene. The evening was closed with group leaders
leading the girls in cabin devotions. (Rumor has it that some timing
in the cabins there was a silly string episode.)
Breakfast was prepared and served by friends from Mt. Neb6
Baptist Church. Lunch was prepared and served by friends froin
Mt. Paran Baptist Church. New Prospect Baptist provided some
snacks for the girls. Late Saturday morning, Michelle Riels of
New Prospect Baptist Church led the girls in a series of games
which were enjoyed by all.
To close the event on Saturday afternoon, skits were presented
by girls from Lydia Baptist church (Leader .Elaine Hines) and Faith
Baptist church (Leader Brenda Carter). Some of the adult leaders,
led by Katrina VanAernam, presented a skit for the girls on modest
ways to dress. A drawing for door prizes was held before the group
was dismissed in prayer.
Participants came from the following churches: Cross City
First, Jena First, Horseshoe Beach First, Lydia, New Prospect,
New Hope, Cornerstone Baptist, Faith, Central Baptist, Old Town
Church of God, Holy Faith Catholic Church, and Rock Sink
Baptist Church. The highlight of the event was knowing that teni
girls had became new believers in Christ truly "Becoming God's
Girls Forever" and many others had made decisions about living
for Christ. Special thanks to all our friends who prayed for the
event, the event leaders, parents, and the girls. We had' a
tremendous group of young ladies who were excited to gather
together with friends to learn, about the things of the Lord. G6od
richly blessed our time together. Praise to His holy name, Great
things He has done!! Praise Him for Godly Girls who love anid
serve Him!

Officer Tom Gallagher
Tuesday, presented a Cabinet
resolution thanking Florida's
commercial and savings
banks, credit unions and
securities dealers for their
efforts during the past five
years to help the state collect
child support payments from
delinquent parents.
S"Through this voluntary
partnership, the State of
Florida has been able to
collect and distribute millions
of dollars annually to benefit
Florida's children with such
necessities as food, shelter,
clothing, medical and
.educational requirements,"
Gallagher said. "Florida's
financial services industry has
willingly. established
programs and dedicated
resources toward this effort,
and the result has been an
improved quality of life for
children."
Gallagher also thanked
Gov. Jeb Bush and the
Cabinet, saying, "Your
support of this plan ensures
children" get the financial
support and opportunities
they deserve."
Since 1999, the financial
services industry in Florida
has actively partnered with
the Florida Department of
Revenue's Child Support
Enforcement Program to
administer the Financial
Institution Data Match
Program. Through
confidential exchanges of
information, the financial
services industry helps
identify parents who are past
due on child support.

How Much Wood Can A
Woodpecker Peck?...
This week's "Sighting" comes from
our good friends and neighbors Austin ] ,
& Nita Hardaway of Cross City. This
colorful woodpecker was seen
"pecking" away at one of their trees and
they couldn't help but take advantage of
the "Kodak moment". .
This particular bird is known as a
Pileated Woodpecker found throughout
the United States, but has been studied
mainly in the'North Western states.
Before the northern spotted owl the '
Pileated woodpecker was used as "monitors" of our forests.
Pileated woodpeckers are well adapted t life on vertical
surfaces. The have strong toes with long sharp nails to cling to
bark or smooth wood, and stiff tail feathers to brace against the

Citizens Warned of Fast Cash This Tax Season
As W-2 forms hit the mailboxes of millions of Floridians, state Chief Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher is warning consumers to be wary of refund anticipation loans loans that offer cash up front
by borrowing against your anticipated tax refund from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
"Money today may sound attractive but signing up for quick refund services can be very costly to
consumers," said Gallagher. "I'm urging Floridians to beware of the fees and interest rate associated
with a refund anticipation loan."
Consumers may fall prey to refund anticipation loans with promises of "instant-refunds" or "quick
cash." Loan fees range from $30 to $105, with administrative fees between $25 and $60 often tacked
on to the loan. The effective Annual Percentage Rates (APR) for these loans may start at 60 percent
and be as high as 700 percent.
Refund anticipation loans are offered by tax preparers who are often located within the offices of
check cashers, payday lenders, used car dealers, title loan lenders and other retail vendors. The tax
preparers serve as a conduit for state and national banks or federal thrifts that provide the loans.
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS)
are the regulatory agencies that govern the activities of national banks and federal savings associations.
National banks and federal thrifts are able to assign interest rates and fees from any state they are
authorized to do business in, including those states that do not have caps on the amount of interest and
fees charged.
Refund anticipation loans are especially appealing to consumers who need money quickly and don't
want to wait the six weeks it can take to get a mailed refund from the IRS. A pitfall, however, is that if
the IRS turns down any of their claimed deductions or credits, the consumer is still obligated to pay
back the loan.
According to Gallagher, there are alternatives to high-cost refund anticipation loans. The IRS E-
File, found at www.irs.gov, is one alternative. Taxpayers can use this free, online tax preparation
service to file their income tax returns and can anticipate receiving their refunds more quickly than if
* they filed through the mail.
Another way to save money at tax time is to go to a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site,
which is sponsored by the IRS. VITA sites provide free tax preparation to low- and moderate-income
taxpayers. They can be found in libraries, community centers and.other convenient locations. To find
a VITA site, call the IRS helpline at 1-800-TAX-1040 or visit www.tax-coalition.org. AARP also
sponsors Tax Counseling for the Elderly sites in many communities.
"Most consumers don't need refund anticipation loans and can get their hard-earned'money back, in
its entirety, by waiting a few extra days," said Gallagher.

Bush Names Two New Department Heads
Governor Jeb Bush has named Tom Lewis as the new Secretary of the Department of Management
Services and Carole Green as the new Secretary of the Department of Elder Affairs.
"Today, I'm proud to announce the appointment of Tom and Carole, who both understand what a
privilege and responsibility it is to serve the people of Florida," Governor Bush said. "They are
talented and committed to making a difference. Both have a history of public service and a proven
ability to lead, motivate and accomplish goals."
Tom Lewis, 65, has served as vice president of Walt Disney World Company since 1999. Lewis
joined the Disney Company in 1987 as director of residential' development and was subsequently
promoted to vice president of community development. Prior to joining Disney, Lewis served for eight
years in Governor Bob Graham's administration starting as the Governor's Special Assistant and
serving as assistant secretary of the Department of Transportation. Lewis completed his service in the
Graham administration as the Secretary of the Department of Community Affairs.
Carole Green, 52, currently services as the Director of Long-Term Care Policy at DOEA. In her
current position Green is a leading advocate for Florida's elders, working closely with the state's
assisted living centers and special needs shelters. Before being named Director for long-term care
policy, Green was a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 1998 to 2004 representing
h the Ft. Myers area.

use different types of trees with different decay characteristic for
roosting than they do for nesting.
Because of the ecological benefits the Pileated woodpecker is
believed to be a keystone species.
