Sparks Ignite ire At



Suwannee Lumber Mill
S By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Safety crew members, county and volunteer firefighters and emergency personnel were quick to respond to a fire at Suwannee Lumber:
last Friday, April 22, 2005 after sparks from a fan blade were blown into a wood shavings bin, causing the material to ignite.
An investigation into the incident revealed that the fan blade suffered from metal fatigue and fell off the fan into the first blower at the
planer mill. As the blade traveled through the blower's pipe, the blade rubbed against the pipe's metal sides causing the sparks that
Traveled into the bin. The material being held in the bin contain fine.shavings, dust and some sap which quickly ignited, causing an
f explosion.

*a".. ,


'Former DCHS Bear, Nick Collins was recently drafted by the Green
Bay Packers. ergo the big smile!
his. summer months in Daytona, Collins volunteered at the local
YMCA. During off-season time, he helped tutor at one of the
elementary schools. "I love kids," stated Collins. "I hope that
other kids can look at me and see that all you need do, is reach
high, because the sky is the limit."
That love of children is most apparent in the way that he looks
at his own little girl. Jenajah, who is 10 months.old. "I know that I
will bel able to provide a good future for her," Collins stated.
Whether or not she will play football is to be seen. If she can't
play, she is definitely pretty enough to be a cheerleader.
SCollin'is mother, Alberta Collins, stated that she always knew
that-Nick was blessed. She stated that before he was born she had
lost- two-other children. "When God let me keep Nick, I knew he
was special," she stated. Collin's father, Willie Collins, stated that
from'a very early age Nick showed signs of loving the game of
football. "When he was just a baby, his Mama would put him in
one of those swings and sit him in front of the TV. He would be
all fussy and all she would have to do was put on a football game,"
he said. "He would get real quiet and watch until he fell asleep," he
added: Both his parents couldn't be prouder of him and all he has
accomplished. "I am so excited about his future," his father stated.
"Nick started on this venture years ago and has overcome many
adversities; but he never let that stop him," he added. "He knew
what-he wanted and what it took to get it."

Sixty-four students from the Dixie County High School Beta
Club attended the State Beta Convention in, Orlando earlier this
month and came home with an impressive list of accomplishments,
including Sarah Durham being elected as. the State's Beta


Sarah Durham & Kris Keen

Suwannee Lumber employees along with county and volunteer firefighters work diligently to put out afire in the shavings bin last Friday.
At the time of the fire, John "Bubba" Clark was working on the planer and received cuts, abrasions and splinters from the explosion.
Johnny Newsome, of Pritchett Truck Lines was on the side of the loading area at the bin and fell approximately 15 feet, breaking his arm.
Because of his fall, Newsome was transported by ShandsCair to Gainesville where he was treated for his broken arm and checked for other'
possible injures that can occur in a fall such as the one he sustained.
Although injured, Clark was quick to respond along with fellow workers in containing the fire until the county fire units arrived. Units
from the Cross City Fire Department Station 41 and Old Town Fire Department Station 21, along with Dixie EMS, Emergency
Management, and Dixie Sheriff's Office all responded to the fire. It took approximately three hours to extinguish the fire and clean up the


area.

Cross City's Greenway Trail Head has a new improved look and is ready for use.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
It's been several months since re-construction of the Greenways Trail Head in Cross City began
and this week officials gave the go-ahead for walkers, bikers and skaters to begin using the new and
improved trail.
Funding for the work came from a TEA21 (Transportation Enhancement Act) grant that comes
from the Florida Department of Transportation. The DOT receives monies from the Federal Highway
Administration, which allows them to provide funding for projects like the one at the Cross City trail
head.
Local contractor, S & T Services won the bid for the project after submitting a bid $999.778, just
under the $100,000 grant amount.
Jim Wolf, Project Construction Manager stated that they had to relocate the trail in order to build a
.parking area. In order to keep from having to build a retention pond, they went with a grass parking lot
See "GREENWA Y", continued page 5


With the height of the bin towering over two stories, fire crews
had to pull hoses and ladders up to the top of the structure by rope:
and pure manpower. While their skills and bravery were apparent;.
the scenario played out at the lumberyard was a reminder of the
challenges that our fire departments face when dealing with multi-
level fires.
Chad Reed, County Emergency Services Director, stated that it
was the, partnership between the Suwannee Lumber .crew and
county crews that kept the situation from becoming a disaster.
"The employees at the mill kept the fire at bay until we arrived and
continued to help until no threats remained," Reed stated. "I
would be proud to work along side any of them at any time," he
added.
Reed noted that the fire engines used at the scene were some of
the newer ones purchased in the past several years. The situation
at Suwannee Lumber proved that having the right equipment is a
necessity and looks forward to continuing to purchase' equipment
that will keep up with the needs of our growing county.
Officials at Suwannee Lumber stated that due to the metal
fatigue, the accident was unavoidable under existing. conditions.
They added that this was the first fire of its kind to happen at the
plant. In order to avoid any future problems, the mill will be
putting in a built-in sprinkler system and spark arrester.
Management and employees at the mill have enjoyed a great
safety record in years past and while disappointed that the accident
happened, are determined to learn from it and continue to strive for
a 100% accident free workplace.


Commission Highlights
Regular Meeting,
April 21, 2005 y

* Commissioners received 4,
notification of an extension on 0 aC
the Turner Point Landing project. i
The extension was granted due to A
the flooding along the Suwannee
River. The new September 30th o, "aS r
deadline gives the county an
additional three months to
complete the project.

* County officials have been meeting with FEMA representatives
on securing Hazard Mitigation Grant monies to the tune of
$603,458. If the funding is awarded some ten projects throughout
the county would be made possible.

* The biggest news is that FEMA has approved funding for the
Horseshoe Beach canal dredging. Not only will the main canal be
dredged but the interior and outer canals as well. With funding in
hand, the county will be moving quickly on the project.
Look for continued coverage of these items in upcoming
Advocate issues.


3rd Grade FCAT Scores In
Last week students from both Anderson and Old Town

LeU's not execute this creep
-Who don't I want the state to execute? His name is John
Evander Couey, and he's the scum who has confessed to the brutal
murder of 9 year old Jessica Lunsford. He is also charged with
sexual ,battery of the child, and it is believed that he buried her
alive.
4And no, I don't want to see this scab on the posterior of the
human species live out his remaining years confined to an isolated
cellt well fed, safe and reasonably comfortable while awaiting the
retftote possibility that he might one day cease to be a burden on the
taxpayers through death by lethal injection. Why? Because that
would amount to letting him off too easy. Besides, a death sentence
setsqin motion a seemingly endless string of appeals, one of which
might lead to a reversal of his sentence, based on the assumption
thalthe was "emotionally disturbed."
Frankly, I don't care if his sort are emotionally disturbed any
more than I care if they have ingrown toenails. He knew what he
wa'doing, he has admitted to it, and that should be sufficient cause
forbany jury to find him guilty and any judge to give him life
without parole.
"From what I've heard about "jail house etiquette," inmates tend
to 'have a very low level of tolerance for child molesters,
particularly those whose crimes have ,been as heinous as Couey's.
Perjiaps you remember serial killer and cannibal Jeffery Dahmer,
also a child molester. He bit the dust at the hands of another inmate
in (1994, only a couple of years after being sentenced to 15
consecutive life sentences for his crimes. Had he been given a death
sentence, chances are he would still be, alive.
MThere is of course the possibility that Couey might be overly
protected by the system. They can't seem to afford much protection
forlyoung first offenders who are often sexually abused by perverts
in he cell blocks to which they're assigned, but a high profile
offender like John Couey would instantly provoke the concern of
the: ACLU and like-minded groups who have teams of lawyers
ready and eager to offer their services to child abusers. It is
Therefore possible that this could provoke the prison system into
going to extraordinary means to protect Couey from the
aforementioned prison etiquette.
::However, if John Couey were sentenced to life without parole
and; then treated like any other hardened criminal (Couey has a
lorg rap sheet), that would justify billeting him in the company of
theineanest and most dangerous felons behind bars. That would be
an;environment in which he would fear for his life during every
waiin"g moment-and chances are, he wouldn't sleep too well
either, and wouldn't that be a pity?
S Please understand that I do not approve of a criminal justice
system wherein this sort of thing is allowed to happen; however
siice we already have this situation in place, it might not be such a
bait idea to tolerate the status quo long enough for it to accomplish
thi singularly worthwhile objective.
:t)orothy Dixon, Madie Secord and Matthew Dittrich lived in a


trailer where Couey admits that he was hiding when police came by
to question them following Jessica's disappearance, and this very
lik aliVe. They were initially charged with obstructing an officer, but
thi charge has since been dropped. This was apparently State
Attorney Brad King's decision. His email address is
bk tg(ajud5.flcourts.org, or you can give him a call at (352) 620-
380). I'm sure he would be delighted to hear from any of us,
having already heard from Bill O'Reilly.
:IThere was a time when horse thieves got treated worse than
hoh cidal child molesters and their accomplices get treated in
today's "enlightened" society. Sort of makes you long for the good
ol0,lays. :

Letter to the Editor
AARP offers hard facts on Social Security reform
There has been a lot of discussion recently on the hard realities
of the Social Security issue. Some have criticized AARP and
others who oppose private accounts, and have even gone as far as
to say that we ignore the facts of Social Security. I would like to
address the issue at hand and make clear the "hard" facts behind
AARP's opposition to private accounts being taken out of Social
Security.
The first critical fact is one that even the most vocal proponents
of private accounts, including the President, admit: private
accounts don't address Social Security's long-term solvency
problems. The simple fact is, if you take money that currently
funds Social Security and put it in something else (like private
accounts), you end up with less money in Social Security. This is
a "solution" that would actually make the problem worse.
Some have alleged that the current system is hampered by
wasteful government management. The facts belie this assertion:
Social Security operates on a 1% administrative cost. There may
be plenty of waste in government, but it's not in Social Security.
The point has been made that soon: (if 2017 is soon), Social
Security will pay out more in benefits than it takes in through
payroll contributions. However, do not forget that since 1983
Social Security has built up reserves that will cover this shortfall
until (by conservative estimates) 2041, after which Social Security,
if left untouched, would still pay out roughly 70% of promised
benefits. AARP believes this situation ought to be addressed now
before it becomes more difficult to fix. That is a far cry from the
argument presented by some that the system is going broke.
The argument has been made that the Social Security reserves
are worthless. They claim that the trust fund has been spent as
soon as it is collected. I would like to point out that the trust fund
contains US Treasury bonds backed by the full faith and credit of
the United States government. We as a nation are obligated to pay
back these loans and will do so. If they are suggesting that the
United States government should renege on those promises, they
should either explain to the nations of China and Japan (who hold
far more US treasury bonds) why they should continue to invest in
the US (which keeps domestic interest rates lower) or else explain
to the American people why they feel it is acceptable for the
federal government to renege on a promise made to its own
citizens but not to foreign governments.
The hard reality is that private accounts that are taken from
Social Security will only add to the system's long-term solvency
problems by racking up enormous new debt and/or guaranteeing
substantial benefit cuts in the future. Opponents of this system,
including AARP, are committed to finding common sense
solutions to Social Security's long-term problems, but private
accounts that come from Social Security funding won't help the
situation; they will only make it worse.
Jeff Johnson-AARP Florida Advocacy Manager

Letter to the Editor
On page 10 of your April 21 edition you ran a very interesting
article about the herb curcumin and its use with those suffering
from Alzheimer's disease. Not only have studies been performed
for its use with Alzheimer's patients but it also has a background
of being effective for various cancers.
However, I would like to offer a clarification regarding some of
the information within the article. Curcumin (Curcuma longa) is
not curry. It is actually an herb called turmeric, a relatively
common spice used in many dishes and a constituent of what we
refer to as curry powder.
It can become a bit confusing but curry is also not a spice, per
se. In particular, it is not a powder and a Curry does not necessarily
contain curry powder. Curry powder is in fact a blend of spices,
varying according to regional preferences or traditions. As a result,
there., are literally thousands of "curry powders".
In many countries, including our own, the word curry is used to
either denote a rather delicious meal or a combination of various
spices blended together in order to create curry powder. From what
I have read, the word curry is derived from the south Indian word
curriel, which was used in the local language for a fish stew that
had tamarind and curry leaves (there is a plant called curry). This
was then picked up and transformed into the present "curry" by the
British. The word "curry", in its English sense, apparently has no
direct translation into any to India's fifteen languages, and Indians
do not use the term even when speaking English.
There are many recipes for curry powder which offers a rather
distinct taste to many dishes. In general the powder consists of, but
is not limited to, varying measurements of cinnamon, cardamom,
cloves, cumin, peppercorns, coriander, turmeric and fenugreek.
Some also add garlic, ginger, and/or mustard seed. Madras curry
powder, quite hot and spicy, has the addition of cayenne or hot
chilies to the mixture.

Letter to the Editor
I am writing this letter to encourage the parents of Dixie
County to be aware of people in their neighborhood. The horrible
tragedies that have happened to children in our area recently
should make us all take notice of our surroundings.
I went on the FDLE website and pulled up the list of Sexual
Offenders in Dixie County. You will be shocked to know that in
Old Town alone, there is a list .of 29 and in Cross City 15.
I encourage you to visit the website and look at the photos to be
aware.
Thank you,

A Message From Tom Gallagher

Florida On Being

Hurricane Prepared
Hurricanes are a way of life here in Florida, but with adequate
and early preparation, you can effectively safeguard your family
and property from devastating losses.
Over the last eight months, my. office has been helping Florida
residents recover from the fury of Mother Nature. In order to learn
lessons from last year's storms and share them with all Floridians,
I recently traveled the state and met with more than 3,000
Floridians during town hall meetings-in Florida's hardest-hit areas.
My office has also fielded more than 350,000 consumer assistance
requests based on last year's storms. By combining the invaluable
testimony collected, with my experiences in dealing with
Hurricane Andrew and Hurricanes Charley, Francis, Ivan, and
Jeanne, my office is able to make the following hurricane
preparedness recommendations to all Floridians:
-Review your homeowner's insurance policy
-If you don't like your policy, shop around for a new one
-Conduct a home inventory and take stock in what you own and
what it is worth
-Invest in preventive measures like shutters, reinforced glass or
even plywood
-Take advantage -of mitigation discounts for protecting your
home
-Start your own disaster savings account to assist your recovery
in a worst-case scenario
These six steps Floridians can take, in addition to disaster
planning recommendations by the Red Cross and National
Hurricane Center, can help protect from the heartache experienced
by so many last year. In addition, the Florida Department of
Financial Services offers a wide range of consumer services. I
encourage you to visit us at www.fldfs.com or call us at 1-800-22-
storm.
I urge that everyone take the necessary precautions, and I wish
all Floridians a safe and uneventful 2005 Hurricane Season.

Letter To The

Editor
I would appreciate if you ,
could put this article in the -
Advocate. I've seen similar
one in Letters to the Editor,
but anywhere would be fine.
I visited this "off the
beaten track" shop and found
it very interesting. Since
most of the people 'eve
mentioned it to, have not
been there. I'm sure many
others don't even know about.
it. The owner has made this
shop a unique,, pleasant and
reasonable place to visit and
shop.
If you haven't stopped in
to visit the Willow Hole Art
Market, you are missing a
treat. There is framed art
work, gourd creations, -wool
creations, deco plates,
handmade soaps, stained
glass, jewelry, handbags, just
to mention some of the
beautiful and unique items
you'll see. The prices are very
reasonable; and you'll find .
Cindy,, the owner, super q
friendly. If you want to spend
$4 or $40 (or even 500) :2
there's something you will
like. The shop may be a little
out of the way, 3 miles north >
on 349, next to Bill's Lawn '
Mower Shop,. but if you'll
take the time, I know you
will be delighted at the large
variety of nice things at
reasonable prices. Willow
Hole Art. market is open,

"COLLINS"
Continued from page 1
When Collins was young his parents divorced and he and his
family went through some tough times. He gives his sister, Angela
Gotman, a lot credit for keeping him on track and for reminding
him how much he was loved and what he had to offer the world.
"I: wouldn't be where I am today, if it weren't for Angela," Collins
noted. "She was my rock."


2001 Bears Football Team


The Collins Clan (left to right) Jenajah, Alberta Collins, Nick
Collins & Willie Collins. .
Another influence came later on in life, during his high school
career as a Bear football player. "Coach Wilkerson really kept me
focused on my school work and helped me get my scholarship,"
Collins stated. He added that he had great memories of when he
played at DCHS. Since he was six years old, Collins played with
many of his high school teammates in the Pop Warner Football
program.
At Bethune Cookman, where Collins played free safety
(defensive back), his stats have been impressive to say the least,
with 144 career tackles and 13 career interceptions. Collins runs a
4.38 in the 40-yard dash and is a quick study with plays. Talent,,
experience-and desire, these are all the qualities that make a great
player, and the Packers know that Collins is a great player,
destined for greatness.
Other teams who were looking at Collins were Miami,
Jacksonville, Philadelphia, Dallas, Cleveland, St. Louis, and the
New Yoxk Jets.
In a phone interview' this past Sunday Collins stated that he
was thrilled .to be signed on by the Packers. "Heck, I get to play
with Brett Favre!" Collins will be leaving for his -new northern
home this week and looks forward to meeting his new teammates.
For us who have been fortunate enough to have worked with or
just watched this young man over the years, come into his own, we
cannot think of anyone more deserving. On the field you see skill
and a natural athletic ability, off the field you see a young man
wvio is loving and compassionate and who has stayed true to
ifimself. Congratulations, Nick, we are so very proud of you, and
for you...PS We'll get the "Cheese-Head" club started.

Successful Diabetes Program
About To End


Rural residents suffering from diabetes and high blood
pressure might be looking elsewhere for disease management
control, as the grant-funded program SMART could be in its final,
weeks of existence.
"The Self Managing Awareness Rural Team, or SMART,
developed under the Rural Health Partnership of North Central
Florida' (RHP), offers free home-based education and self-
management of diabetes and high blood pressure. SMART targets
irdisiduals '.'hou v.ere recently diagnosed with diabetes or high
blood pressure and/or are experiencing trouble copifig with their
disease. Rural, minority or medically underserved residents within
Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Levy, Suwannee and Union
county directly benefit from SMART.
'The mission of SMART is simple: to decrease morbidity due
to diabetes and high blood pressure of residents in the SMART.
-Service area. Since the program's inception in 2002, over 1,000
residents have been screened for diabetes and high blood pressure,
and 'over 400 residents have completed the SMART program.
.' The- continued efforts of SMART since 2002 has helped to
reduce hospitalizations by 68:6 percent and a survey of SMART
clients showed 98.9 percent feel they are better able to handle their
lise.se..
'SMART .was created by. RHP and administered by
,WellFlorida Council, Inc. The program is funded by a three-year
Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Rural.
Health Outreach Grant.
) The three-year grant period for, SMART ends April 30, 2005.
Dqstree. Hayes, director of the SMART 'program, has been
mobilizing to raise money for the continuation of the program.
-:t-.Cleadrly, the goals of SMART are being met and we are
:encouraged b. the fact that rural physicians continue to refer
'patients to our program," Hayes said.
Substantial contributions have been made to 'the. program.
A\ Mled,. a' member of Santa Fe HealthCare has committed
;$20.000. Trenton Medical Center and Lake Butler Hospital/Hand
Surgery Center have each committed $10,000. Suwannee River
SAHEC has committed $2,000, and ACORN Clinic has committed
$1 '.000. 'The program is still in need of an additional $30,000 to
"fund SMART in five counties.

Behold The
Tabernacle Of
God
"Like Ones To Him"
Continued from last week, I
the Day of the Lord, say There is a
new spiritual order coming forth,
the likes of which the world has
never seen. It will be impossible to
identify this NEW CREATION
with any part of the old order and
realm. Babylon will totally dis-
own it, and cast it out from her
midst, but the Lord shall receive
these INTO HIMSELF.
By the grace of God I am what
I am..." (1 Corinthians 15:10) is
Paul's confession. Not just what "I
was", nor yet limited to the
visionary declarations of what "I
will be", for even the term I WILL
BE leaves the negative tone that
am not that thing now. We readily
agree that we are not fully become
all that He has apprehended us for,
and therefore there is th4t
futuristic vision, and we press
toward the mark may we do so
with diligence.
And yet there is also a present
inworking of His marvelous grace,
as He lifts us up out of the "I
WAS" and brings us into a new
measure of the present-tense "I
AM". Nor is there any need of
e carnally proclaiming ourselves to
be what we have not yet become,
there is already far to&d much of
the pervertedness of a "false I am"
in this day, self-proclamations that
have no STATE OF BEING to
confirm their words.
I the Day of the Lord, say But
we are in a transition, we are
neither what we once were, nor
are we yet all that we shall be, but
we are WHAT WE ARE at this
present stage of development by
the grace of God, and His grace
shall continue to minister to His
elect until they have been brought
into His fullness. Love" you,
continued next week.

Special Thank
You
We would like to send
thanks out to Anderson
Elementary School, Georgia
Pacific of Cross City, all of
Dixie County, and the whole
world for their love, support,
prayers, and generous
donations on behalf of our
daughter ,Rachel, Thank' you.

Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, Florida Thursday, April 28, 2005


There is much news concerning the safety
and well being of our children. In some
communities there are signs placed stating
"Neighborhood Watch" which is very good,
yet there is still a crisis with our children
being kept out of harms way. Statistics are
reporting higher numbers in their abuse,
Lucille Stockton abduction and death.
My plea to all parents and communities is
for us to bind our forces in a "Neighborhood Prayer Watch."
*Prayer is a powerful force in the universe; if we join together there
is more power in numbers.
Think about the title of Mrs. Clinton's book "It Takes A
Village To Raise A Child." While we are living the free abundant
life that was granted to us by Jesus paying the sacrifice with His
life he also said bring the little children to him. Since we are
-entrusted with the noble job of parenting let's join together and ask
God to help and teach us how to watch and pray for our children's
.safety and protection.
Prayer changes minds, minds changes people, and people
changes things. Communities let's pray together, there is more
strength in numbers. No time we spend is to precious to invest in
our most valuable possessions.
Our Children "Love Life And Live It"

Faith Baptist Church News
What a beautiful Lord's Day we had today. After .a much
needed and delightful rain, the skies were clear and the weather
was crisp and cool, making a wonderful day to worship Him. Some
of our folks who had been out sick, out for surgery and other
reasons, were back with us and we were so happy to see them. We
thank God for all His blessings on Faith.
Our Vacation Bible School (VBS) is just around the comer and
if you feel that you can help in any way, please contact Cheryl
Lord and let her know. We are expecting wonderful things in our
VBS this year. Every year just seems to get better.
If you haven't been coming to Sunday school, we urge you to
join us. We study God's Word and learn about Jesus. We have
wonderful teachers and classes for all ages.
.Remember this week to pray for the sick, stop by and see the
shut-ins and invite a friend or loved one to come to- church with
you. It may be just the invitation they've been waiting for and the
Lord will bless you richly for it.
Until we meet again, remember that we love you, we're
praying for you and looking for you again next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
God really blessed us with another wonderful day of worship
Sunday. The choir sounded especially good. as did the young
church group who sang for us afterwards. Bro. Billy did his usual
fine job of bringing God's messages, the morning sermon from
Luke 16:19-31, and the evening sermon from 2nd Chronicles 7:12-
15.
We're really being blessed in our Spring Revival this week,
beginning at 7:00 each evening, Monday-Friday. Bro. Jack
Yarbrough of Hinesville, GA, is bringing the messages and, if you
'have or haven't attended already, please join us in hearing this
,dynamic man of God expound the Holy Scriptures. On Sunday,
,May 1st, we also look forward to having our 105th Annual
Homecoming at New Prospect. Bro. Gene VanAernam will bring
* the nomecoming message, which will be followed by dinner on the
ground at the church annex. Our Annual Mother/Daughter
Banquet will be held on Saturday, May 7th.,.deadline for signup is
May 1 st.
;. I :As always, be much in prayer for one another, the folks on the
church prayer lists, our President and other leaders, and our people
,in the Armed Forces. We invite you to visit us anytime at New
!Prospect...all are welcome! Have a good week, and may God be


'with you. -


The Word made
Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
Continued from last week. I
the Son of Man, say unless a New
-Church exists, which shall abolish
:the faith of the old church (which
is in three God's) and introduce a
ifiew one which is a faith in one
/God, (thus in the Lord God the
savior, Jesus Christ), not any flesh
can be saved, according to the
Lord's Words.
The Lord, when He spoke
?with the disciples concerning the
consummation of the age and His
'coming, that is concerning the. end
Sof the church of the present day
and then the beginning of the new
church, after describing the
'desolation and affliction: Unless
those days were shortened no flesh
'could be saved (Matt 24:21,22)
,that is, would altogether perish in
'eternal death.
No flesh could be saved
,unless that affliction and the
,abomination of desolation were
removed, is because through the
'faith of the church of the present
"day there is no conjunction with
'God, and thence no salvation: for
.this depends solely upon
conjunction with God, yea, that
conjunction is salvation.
I the Son of man, say through
' the faith of the church of the
present day there is no conjunction
with God, because that faith is a
faith in three God's, and a faith
unless it is one God, does not
conjoin, also, because that faith is
in God the Father, who is
inaccessible; and also in the Son
born from eternity, who is
likewise inaccessible, since He is
of the same essence with the
Father and likewise in the Holy
^Spirit from eternity, the faith in
these two is (a faith) in no God.
S'I the Son of man, say add to
this that the faith of the present
day cannot be united with charity,
and faith not ufiited with charity,
thus alone, does not conjoin.
Hence it follows that unless the
new church, this new body of
Christ, be established by the Lord,
which shall abolish that faith and
teach a new one, namely a faith
which is in one God, and which is
at, the same time united with


charity, not any flesh could be
preserved, that is, not any man
could be saved.
I the Son of man, say the faith
of the present day has destroyed
the entire church and that it has
falsified the Whole Word has been

Daddy's Angel
Copyright 2000, by Max the Poet
She means more to me, than life,
She's the wish I once dreamt,
She is an Angel, sent by God,
To ease my heart's lament.
She's my daughter, my prize,
The gleam within my eyes,*
I love her more than anything,
And I hate it when she cries.
She gives me hope, she gives me love,
And her hugs, they are the best,
She is all I ever dreamed of,
Apart from all the rest.
Her love is unconditional,
It comes straight from her heart,
Lifting me up when I am blue,
As she did right from the start.
I love my daughter with all my heart,
She's an Angel from above, -
She has given me more than I can give,
She. taught me how to "love"..

Full Moon Fun At Bronson

Speedway
It was a much anticipated return for the Modified class at the
* ASA Sanctioned Bronson Motor Speedway Saturday Night and the
crowd was not disappointed. Bronson's premiere division was the
first class to run their feature race on a spectacular night of racing.
0 Gene Owen started on the pole in his Texas Trailers special and
once the green flag fell, Owen used this advantage to take the early
lead with Gary Southard and Ron Campbell in tow. The top three
j raced away from the rest of the pack. Determined to settle the race
among themselves, the top pack ran single file for the first ten laps.
On lap .eleven, Southard piloting his Brother Alan's car, moved to
the bottom to challenge for the lead. After a spirited battle,
Owen's motor expired and eliminated him from contention. The
hired gun, Southard would cruise to a win over Campbell and Chip
Owen.
Next on deck were the Hungry Howie's Sportsman series. Matt
Blum and Robbie Cooper were on the front row after strong runs in
' the heat races. After the start, Blum jumped out to the early
, advantage. He and Cooper dueled for the lead throughout the early
Going. Roger Damron would join the mix in his Hugh's Concrete
Sentry and even lead briefly. On lap six, Cooper established himself
as the dominate car and ran away to another win in the Hungry
Howie's Sportsman series.
. The Pure Stocks took to the speedway after the completion of
Sthe Sportsman rice., John Mamph led lap one of the race.
SAlthough a hard charging Donnie Roberts would muscle by
SMamph and take the lead. There would be a lot of bumping and
grinding in the pack behind the leader, Roberts. Frontrunner, Mike
SBaker made a bid for the point for a moment but was shook out of
the lead pack and had to settle for fifth. After a restart on lap six,
SRoberts sped away for the win with Jason Holbrook a close
Second.
Up next was the fast and furious action of the wild and crazy
SFigure Eight series. Gary Swing took advantage of his starting
position at the front as he would lead the first eight laps. One of
the hardest chargers was the #25 of Robbie Powell. He started his
S Retro Elevator machine in thirteenth and quickly was among the
Leaders. Powell established himself as the leader on lap nine and
never looked back. There were. many close calls throughout the
Seventh, but there were relatively few incidents as the race closed
out. Hats off to Charley Meyer, as he ran a strong second in the
race.


As always, the Thunder Stocks put on an extremely eventful
race with tight racing throughout. There was a five-way battle for
the lead in the early going. Willard Driggers showed the way
followed closely by Bobby Taylor and Randy O'Neal. For a time,
it looked as if anyone of the front pack could win the race. As the
. laps began to, wind down though, Driggers and Taylor separated.

Steinhatchee Fi
Cow Pie: Thirty-seven point four
nautical miles offshore a bird circled my
boat. It was an exhausted cattle egret. We
were his last ditch effort before a kamikaze
dive in the Gulf. Against natural instinct,
he did a faltered, three-toed landing on the
bow railing. It was certain death or deal
with the eight people milling 'around the
fishing boat. 'He wisely chose the people
option. We gave him personal space to lt
him rest and get comfortable with us. He
joined us around two thirty in the
afternoon. After his arrival, we fished here
and there in a two to four mile.line toward
shore, for an hour so, while bouncing in a
two to three foot hard chop. When we
moved, he would either ride with us having
wings and feathers fluttering or fly off and
follow tight behind Re-landing each time
we stopped.
I named that cattle egret "Cow Pie". I
figured that cattle bird had found itself in a
world of 'pie' that far offshore. It was
honoring to have a wild bird trust me for
over an hour even though its choices were
very limited.
It came time to head for the hill. We
took a few moments to collect ourselves-
together, before directing the bow toward
the number one channel marker at
Steinhatchee. Would Cow Pie -take the
ride'? Cow Pie was perched in front of the
T-top like a :ram head on a Dodge truck.
- 'Tucked in and ready to ride, I ran Cow Pie
in on a twenty knot forward motion with a
following sea giving him a ten knot or so
face wind with a carousel ride on the Twin
Vee catamaran. The ride in wasn't bad at
all, nonetheless, three times the bird
released its death grip. Cow Pie would
blow off the stern and I'd slow the boat to
let him fly back; When the boat slowed,
. the folk, asleep on the bean bags, would
.:raise up and I'd explain that Cow Pie lost
his grip:and we had to re-do to let him back
in. No problem, get Cow Pie back. It was

nice to have fine people appreciate
what I was doing for a silly bird.
Anyway, at channel marker
seven, Cow Pie got an eye full of
land. He lit off to the north side of
the river, ahead of the boat. 'No
thank you, just unsaid thankfulness.
His white feathers flashed every now
and then in the setting sun before
plopping down on the first oyster
key. I imagine Cow Pie felt good
and I know we felt better.
It seems silly to worry about a
misdirected bird considering that
many a bird is blown off course with
the east winds and dies at sea. But
life is a circle of events or
opportunities. We, life, are on a ball Cat
whirling about a firebarl spinning Mc(
about in a universe orbiting the year
unknown. The might of time spent
with Cow Pie was worth the gig. Things
come around. We spin. That day I grabbed
a faltered feather and it will come around
again, perhaps in different form.
Good grouper are biting on hard bottom
from 45 to 72 feet from my dealings with
them. Live bait is best but fresh dead
lizard-fish or pink mouth grunt slabs are
doing well. Frozen Spanish sardines or
herring are catching fish as well. Trolling
will bring in a fine cooler of fish if you
want an easy day. Trolling plug colors
have been mixed to the point that it just
don't matter. Get the lure in front of the
fish and it will happen. Oops, king fish
bonus on the troll (keep one to put fresh
steaks on the grill).
Large pods of baitfish are fluttering
from 30 to 43 feet on smooth days. Spring
has finally sprung. Run the large spoons or
jigs with bait strips back on way to the
grouper grounds to get a shot at king fish.
It's worth the time.

Justin Hodge

On His Way To The Top


Justin has been around racing since he has been
'.' \, '' born. Racing started with his Grandpa .Gerry.
S When Grandpa Gerry retired racing, it was passed
S' on to Justin's daddy "Kevin Hodge". Grandpa
Gerry was a very successful racer winning many
trophies. Kevin "Justin's dad" won rookie of the
year, Division Champion and Track Champion all in his first year of racing. Without Grandpa Gerry
none of this could have been accomplished. All the hard work and great racing skills and knowledge
passed on to my daddy by Grandpa Gerry paid off. Justin began his Third Generation racing when he
was barely four years old entering in a bicycle race, age 6 and under, and won a 3rd place trophy. Justin
at 3 years old would help, his daddy and Grandpa work on the race car to get it ready for the race every
Saturday night. Everything done by his daddy, Justin had to check and make sure it was done right.
Justin has continued his love of racing with his new racing cart pictured above. Justin races with his
daddy, Grandpa Gerry, Mr. Bobby and many friends. Justin has won one 1st place trophy, two 2nd place
trophies and one 3rd place trophy. "All of this is possible because of four very special people, my dad
and.mom, Grandpa Gerry and especially Mr. Bobby".,Congratulations, we love you very much

Little Known Facts
www.littleknownfactsshow.com. Ch A
by Chaz Allen
He wanted to run for public office, and like most people
running for office, Bill Canby knew that it would take something
special to get the voters' attention. He was sure that he had the
perfect thing to do it.
Bill was a historian by profession. He made a study of history
and reported what he found to the public in general, and to the
school that employed him, of course. But deep down inside he had
an ambition to be in public office, and he was sure that he would
be a good politician if he could just get in office. But in 1870,
historians weren't held in that high of regard and he knew that he
would need some kind of gimmick to get the voters to notice him,
much less elect him.
And Bill did have an "Ace in the Hole." Bill was the grandson
of famed seamstress Betsy Ross. Yes! That Betsy Ross. So, Bill
decided that he would' play his Ace card. During a visit to ,
Washington he went before the Congress of the United States and '
made a speech; one. that he was sure would make all the papers andi- cA
get him noticed and maybe even elected.
He told the heartwarming story of how his grandfather George. '
Ross, along with George Washington and Robert Morris, was on
the committee to design a new flag for the new country. .He told of
how the committee went .to his seamstress grandmother Betsy .*
Ross, who re-designed their rough sketch and came up with the
now famous stars and stripes.
Bill got his wish; well, for the most part anyway. His speech -
was written down in the Congressional record and it was made '
public. Bill did get a lot of attention for his speech and his famous,
heroic grandparents. There was just one little problem with Bill's
plan. It wasn't true! Bill made the whole thing up.
Betsy Ross never touched the flag; neither did George, Robert
or the other George. It's a Little Known Fact that the original flag
of the 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies with the red
and white strips was designed by Mr. Francis Hopkinson in 1777,
nine years after Betsy was supposed to have done it. Frank was a
Navy flag maker from way back. He had made hundreds of flags
in his life and was the one who designed and sewed Old Glory.
So why was Betsy given the credit? Well, because of that
speech that Betsy's grandson Bill made to Congress. It went into
the Congressional record and was republished by almost every ,.
newspaper in the country. It didn't help Bill, though. He lost the ',
election anyway. And Frank never was paid by the government for
making our flag!

Spring Break Fun Has Its
Consequences
by Lacy Osteen
Cross City, Fla. What's the deal with spring break and kids,
specifically college kids? During a certain week of the year,
schools let out and kids go WILD! Fun is what is on their minds.
Not all turns out to be, fun and games though. Sometimes these
young adults make unwise
decisions that lead to big
problems. The use of alcoholic
beverages lead to other unwise
'.. actions and changed lives
S forever.
Some college kids on spring
break think it is fun to go to
parties and become intoxicated
and end up abusing drugs,
having unwanted pregnancies,
or finding themselves in life-
27. \ \ y ."... threatening situations like
hanging from a three-story
Lacey Osteen balcony. Is this fun?!
According to ABC News,
"Print and TV glamorize spring break, glamorize the whole hook-
up phenomenon and the ...acting out". Binge drinking is common,
according to the Journal of American College Health: eighteen
drinks a day for guys, ten a day for girls. In a survey released the
week of March 19, 2005, the National Institute of Health said that
alcohol-related assaults are up to 600,000 cases a year and the rate
of alcohol-related deaths among college students has jumped 13
percent. A 19-year-old student died when he fell from hotel
balcony while on a spring break vacation in Panama City, Florida.
A significant amount of alcohol was found in his blood. This type
of behavior is not as rare as we'd like. (2005 ABC News Internet
Ventures)
So what about having fun on spring break? You CAN! Just
make wise decisions and choose activities that have a positive
impact on your future and not just a "for the moment" thrill!

AvMed Donates $20,000
To SMART


AvMed Chairman Joseph Dunlap with Desiree Hayes and Dixie
EMS Director Chad Reed
Gainesville-- Despite three years of successful outcomes, the
SMART program was in jeopardy of closure as grant funding was
scheduled to end April 30, 2005. Wednesday, AvMed fulfilled a
long-term promise to the program by presenting a check for
$20,000 to the Rural Health Partnership of North Central Florida
(RHP) for the continuation of SMART.,
The Self Managing Awareness Rural Team, or SMART,
developed under RHP, offers free home-based
Education and self-management of diabetes and hypertension.
Serving Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Levy, Suwannee and
Union County, SMART is a 12-week program, providing residents
education concerning diabetes and/or high blood pressure.
Since the inception of SMART in 2002, there has been a 68.6
percent reduction in hospitalizations related to diabetes and high
.blood pressure in the counties served. Surveys taken show 98.9
percent of those residents who have completed the program feel
better able to handle their disease.
AvMed's commitment to the program goes back to the year
2002, when Sen. Rod Smith served as Executive Director of
SantaFe HealthCare, Inc. AvMed is- a member of SantaFe
HealthCare. Smith, who has a personal interest in diabetes, agreed
they would contribute to SMART in 2005 when grant funding was
scheduled to end, if the program proved successful during its first
three years.
"As the only child of a lifetime diabetic mother, I have spent
most of my life observing the pain of diabetes and its impact on the
victim. I also understand the impact on the family," said Smith.
"We have made great strides against diabetes, but too many of our
citizens have yet to benefit from what we have learned. I am
poised to do whatever I can to get us closer to a cure; until then, it
is imperative that all victims have the most current information and
technology to better improve their quality of life."
AvMed Board Chairman, Joseph Dunlap, presented the check
to Desiree Hayes, director of RHP and SMART, on April 20, 2005
at Well Florida Council in Gainesville.
Other substantial contributions have been made to keep the
program going. Contributors include: Shands HealthCare, Well
Florida Council, Rural Health Partnership of North Central Florida,
Trenton Medical Center, Lake Butler Hospital/Hand Surgery
Center, Levy County Health Department, Suwannee River AHEC
and ACORN Clinic. .

Crosstyz Returns To
Red Belly Day


Crosstyz
The band Crosstyz will be making a much anticipated return to
the Red Belly Day stage for the 10th Anniversary show this
Saturday, April 30th. This will be the bands first public
performance in the area this year. Crosstyz has not performed at
Red Belly Day for a few years and after a most tragic accident last
summer it was unsure as to whether the band would continue.
' Co founding member Elvin Mathews, better known to most as
Sam, suffered a fatal auto accident last July. Although the band has
undergone slight personnel changes in the last decade, the core of
the band (founding members and primary stylists) had always been
Sam on lead guitar, his brother-in-law Rick Carnley on bass, and
lead singer Robert Osteen. The biggest concern was in who could
replace Sam and still maintain the sound and direction of the band.
A More than qualified replacement was found with Hardee Myer,
local guitarist, vocalist and veteran of many memorable bands.
Rdunding out the band is long time drummer, Toby Witt, pedal
steel guitarist Bobby Dodd, and champion fiddler Tommy
Slaughter.
- The band is looking forward to their Red Belly homecoming
and is sure to put on a most dynamic show. Gates open for the
show at 9:00 AM with live music all day. Crosstyz will take the
stage about 2:45 PM.

Post 91 News
Post 91 will hold the yearly elections at the May meeting on
Saturday, May 14. The meeting will begin at 10:00 AM, but the
pancake breakfast will begin at 08:00 AM. Bring your family,
friends and a fellow veteran with you, but most important of all,
BRING YOURSELF!
Many of our Legionnaires "wear other hats" in the community
and might not be known as a Legionnaire, much less as a veteran.
Legionnaires, come out to the Post on the second Saturday of tfhe
month, support the donation breakfast, stay for the meeting, and let
us become more visible in our community by working together for
the community. If you have a son that might be interested in
"working alongside Dad" for the veteran, the community and our
community's youth, there are the Sons of the American Legion
Squadron that has formed at the Post. The SAL will meet
immediately after the Legion meeting is over each Saturday
until the Squadron is sufficiently staffed to set it's own time and
day to meet.
The American Legion Auxiliary meets on the second Thursday
at 7:00 PM at the Post home on US-129 five miles north of
Trenton.
Keep our troops all over this world in your thoughts and
prayers each day, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and the families of those called to active duty,
helping out where and when we can.

IWC Wants All Boaters To Be Safe Boaters
It's a beautiful day. You're on your boat, enjoying the weather and doing a little fishing. However,
..hen you decide to return to shore, you discover you're out of fuel. Hope you remembered your
cellular phone and you can get a signal.
Warmer weather means more folks will be on the water in their boats. With the total number of
registered essels in Florida at an all-time high with 982,907 registered in 2004, there could be a lot of
people on the water at any given time.
Howe\ er. before enjoying the water, you should take the time to make sure your vessel is prepared
for the trip, according to Maj. Calvin Adams, Regional Commander for the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conser% action Commission's (FWC) North Central Region.
;- Boating safety is one of the core responsibilities of the FWC Division of Law Enforcement. The
_officers who are on Florida's waterways every day say statistics could be much better if people would
observe the most basic safety guidelines.
"People have been inside all winter and are anxious to get back on the water. Hbwever, they
Don't always do what they need to do to ensure the boating trip is safe.
"If boaters would do a safety check and make sure they have all the equipment they need
before leaving the house, it could save a great deal of aggravation later. If you run out of gas in the
':Gulf, it's too late," Adams explained.
Adams suggests boaters should:
Start the motor to make sure it will crank.
k* i Perform preventative maintenance on the engine to make sure it's in good working order or
,take it to a mechanic and let them check it over.
Ensure.spare parts are available, such as a prop and shear pins.
Take enough fuel to get where you're going and back again.
Ensure the boat's equipment is in good working order. For instance, make sure the line on the
anchor isn't rotten and that all running lights are in working order.
Make sure the required safety equipment is onboard, including U.S. Coast Guard-
appproved life jackets, fire extinguishers, sound-producing devices and visual distress signals. At the
FWC website, http://mvfwc.com/boating/safety/vessel class/requirements.asp, the minimum required
safety equipment for recreational vessels by class is listed.
"Always have life jackets that fit everyone on board. An adult-sized life jacket will not protect a
1 child. Florida law requires children under 6 years old and all people using personal watercraft or water
:-skis to wear life jackets," Adams explained. "All boaters should wear life jackets. If you think they're
,-too hot and uncomfortable, consider purchasing the U.S. Coast Guard-approved inflatable life jackets.
Be weather wise. Know the weather before you begin your outing.
.:. Don't overload your boat with people or equipment.
Everyone 21 years old or younger is required to complete a 'Commission-approved boater
^education course to operate vessels powered by 10 horsepower motors and over. The FWC encourages
all boaters to take a safe-boating course. Information on course availability is at www.myfwc.com;
click on "Boating."
Carry a cellular phone, and be sure your VHF radio is working properly.
"However, in a large area along the Gulf coast, cell phone signals are unreliable. We've had several
-incidents this year where people got into trouble and couldn't get a signal," Adams said. "One good
'device to have with you is a pocket-sized Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) that works off weather
'satellites. With literally hundreds of square miles of water to search, it's easy to see why a PLB would
:be a life saver. With a functioning PLB, searchers can go straight to a boater."
"Another important thing to do is file a float plan.so someone knows where you are and when
you're supposed to return," Adams said.
For outings on the water, leave a float plan with a relative or friend or at least a local marina.
Describe the boat, its registration number, size, make, horsepower and engine type.
List where you are going, the detailed route, and your expected return time.
K Describe each leg of the trip including locations of all stopping points and dates and times..
Give the number of passengers, their names and addresses, and a contact in case of
,emergency.
m For shorter daytime outings, at a minimum, you should:
Contact a responsible person before you go out and tell him or her where you will be boating
1and when you plan to return.
Leave a phone number of the local authorities that this person should contact if you are
"overdue.
vd* Contact this person again when you return or if you decide to extend your time out on the
water.
^ Drinking and boating don't mix either.
"Alcohol was the leading primary cause of fatal boating accidents in 2004. Impaired boaters come
Ioff the water and often become impaired drivers, further endangering public safety. Don't drink and
operate a boat or vehicle," Adams said. "Have a designated driver so you can enjoy yourself and keep
everyone safe."
FWC law enforcement is on duty 24 hours a day and can be contacted at 1-888-404-3922 or #FWC
,on a cell phone.

Log Cabin
Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters
met Thursday, April 21 at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Another Spring day, so much
to do it seems our days pass so
quickly we wonder where the
time goes.
We had five visitors from
Ocala and two from the
Chiefland Citizen. Mr. and
Mrs. Alton Quinn have been
here as Alton is the one who
makes our thread holders and
they work with spinning
wheels and wool. We were all
given a needle thimble. These
go on a finger and are used
when you are sewing. We will
all be trying them.
It won't be long until our
Church Luncheon, Tuesday,
May 3rd and we are looking for
around 100. It is always a fun:
day and a day to see old
friends and make new ones. ,
Today was Sarah Smalls
last day until next winter. She
quilts in Illinois on Thursday
so when we quilt we know she
will be doing the same. If she
could have had maybe two
more weeks she would have
the second one finished while
she has been here for the
winter.
Lunch was so good, Cled
made okra salad, Marie made
coffee ice cream cake, arid
Betty's coconut pie. There was
fresh cream corn, meatloaf,
apple salad and so much more.
22 were present.:

Pictured left to right are Jesse and Jenna Adams, Jack Adams and
Ernie Neupert.
After all, he knows first-hand what it is like to overcome an illness.
"If I can inspire just one person to continue to fight their illness,
this trip will be worth it," Ernie stated.
Ernie said that he has always dreamed for biking cross-country,
so what better way to help raise funds and awareness than to travel
the country and meet with people one-to-one.
On April 4, 2005, Ernie, his wife and friend headed out on their
journey. They started in Clermont and will travel across to
Louisiana to California, up to Washington, back across to the east
coast to Maine and then complete the loop back down to Florida.
When completed he will have biked 10,000 miles and been on the
road 280 days.
SErnie stated that he has already met some great people. He
noted that he has been surprised by their compassion and
generosity. One of those folks is Jack Adams, owner of Pro Tires
in Cross City. After having talked to Ernie, Jack couldn't help but
donate a $100.00 towards his cause.
Ernie has the blessings of the American Diabetes Association
:and encourages people to check out their website at
www.diabetes.ore or call 1-800-676-4065 ext. 3037 and find out
how you can help. If you would like to give.Ernie credit for his.

First Baptist Church Of Old Town
Praise God! What a blessing to start the week off right.. .How?
-Hearing God's word and Fellowship... Where? Why Church, of
course. Hearing and studying God's word will strengthen us and
:help us go through the week ahead. We heard a wonderful song
titled "Called Out". From this one little song and Acts 16:19-35,
Brother Royce Hanshew gave a good message to us. Following are
some nuggets of wisdom gleaned from the message.
'' Did you know that you are "called out",for a purpose? If you
;re a Son or Daughter in the Kingdom of God, you are called to be
a.ser ant in God's House. How? By serving any need your Church
ihis. It may be a greeter to welcome visitors and members, or to
'jielp with the youth group. Sometimes it's just to say, "Hello, I'm
ihre to help". Do you need a extra hand in something, what or
where can.I help? Remember, in all you do, do for the Kingdom of
;G0d, and not unto people.
^ We have been "called out" to raise and lift the standard. What
Standard?. God's word and God's pathway of living, each day in
iuV lives. We are "called out" to be a witness/disciple.. Does your
"light" shine each day and night? Or do you cover it up under a
basket or put on a mask for the world to see? We are "called out"
to forgive. Why? Because God's word tells us to forgive others, so
Hd can forgive us our trespasses.
We are "called out" from the world. Why? To share the word
-with the lost. To build up and edify one another. For God so loved
',6 'world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever
*plieves in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. First

Crews from Trauma I load James Self into the helicopter that transported him to a Tallahassee hospital
where he was treated for a broken leg after falling in a boat.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Monday, April 25, 2005 James Self of Athens, Georgia, had full intentions of going out
and catching some of those trout that have been so plentiful lately but instead he got a trip in a
helicopter to a Tallahassee hospital after sustaining injuries in a fall.
According to several other passengers on the boat, the crew on the 1Nauti Girl hadn't left the River
Haven Marina very long when Self lost his balance and fell on the boat's deck. His fall resulted in his
breaking one of his legs. Calling for help the boat headed back to the marina where the Taylor County
EMS crew began his treatment, later carrying him to meet the helicopter.
The helicopter landed at the Steinhatchee School, causing quite a gathering of on-lookers, including
the workers who are presently constructirtg the school's new gymnasium.
No worries, Mr. Self, there are plenty of fish to go around. Hope you'll try our waters after you
heal.

Net Limitation

Bill Awaits

Research
TALLAHASSEE: House
Bill 741 still has a future. The
controversial issue of
amending the Constitutional
Net Limitation is far from
being over. The supporters of
HB 741 showed intense efforts
last week, as Rep. Will
Kendrick led the campaign to
save Florida's ecosystem and
the commercial fishing
economy.
Rep. Kendrick made
the complex decision to
temporarily postpone HB 741
pending a further study, as the
bill was brought before the
Water and Natural Resource
Committee last Thursday. The
meeting, held in Reed Hall,
was full of strong emotion.
Supporters of the bill
explained the importance of
the/bill to the eco-system, and
to the declining commercial
fishing industry; while
opponents of the bill shared
their, experiences of how
recreational fishing would be
affected should the mesh size
change.
On Wednesday, Rep.
Kendrick gave a press
conference, urging support of
the bill from his fellow
Legislators. In the press
conference, Kendrick
explained that the goals of the
constitution are not clear, and
that it is the duty of the,
Legislature to protect the
environment. "It is not about
changing the constitution only
clarifying the mesh size which
is absent from the constitution
and the Florida Statutes" said'
Kendrick.
Amidst the controversy
surrounding HB 741 and HJR
1581, Kendrick said that he
does not want anyone to lose
focus on what this bill is all
about. "The issue is not about
the commercial fishing
industry versus recreational
fishing; it's not about
recreational versus the FWC;
it's about. resource
management in that the current
rules are inconsistent in
following what the constitution
has mandated," explained
Kendrick.
Rep. Kendrick has
proposed that the Office of
Program Policy Analysis and
Government Accountability
conduct a two year study that
will assist lawmakers in
determining the decision-

we are made to keep fishing
with a 2-inch mesh sized net,:;
there won't be anymore fish;
for the future -generations,"-
said David Grix, Vice,'
President of Fishing fqr ,"
Freedom.
Advocates of the bill -
remained optimistic with Rep.
Kendrick's decision to "
postpone the bill. Supporters of
HB741 knew that Kendrick
would do what was in the best
interests of the environment,,as,-
well as the commercial fishing ,
economy. "It has never been
my intention to.not uphold the'
oath of which I took upon,,:
taking office, of upholdiigii-th i
constitution. But it-- is my.
intention to have- anopen mind'
when looking at'the intent of
the state constitution", said
Kendrick.
HB 741 will return to the.
Legislators agenda in 2007'
accompanied by the concluded
study. Rep. Kendrick hopes
that the study conducted by
OPPAGA will help to clarify
the damages that smaller mesh
sizes create, and he applauds,, '
the efforts of the supporters of
HB 741, and the environment.

Legal Aid
Today's Topic:
DEALING WITH DEBT COLLECTION PART I
When consumers do not have the money to pay all their debts,
they must make some difficult choices about which debts to pay
first. Constant harassment from collection agencies can cause
consumers to pay the wrong debts first, which can harm their -
families. Just as dangerous to the consumer are feeling
overwhelmed and trying to ignore the bills in the unrealistic hope
that they will go away.
If you are in the situation where you are facing a lot of debt and
pressure from collection agencies, here are some helpful legal aid-
tips.,
You first should use your money to pay for what is most.
necessary for your family food, clothing, shelter, and utility
service. Debt collectors threaten a lot of things (such as lawsuits, ,.
seizing household goods, or garnishing your wages). These threats -'
should be given little weight unless a lawsuit has actually been-'
filed and you receive the court papers in your hand.
Some general rules for setting payment priorities are:
Mortgage and rent payments should always come first. "
Make. whatever payments are necessary to insure that*
essential utility service is not disconnected. Some utility
companies may not require full payment even if you are behind.
A car loan should be paid after critical items (food, rent,
clothing), but before most other debts for nonessentials.
Generally, loans with only household goods as collateral
should be paid after more pressing debts.
Debts without property pledged as collateral, such as credit
cards, doctor and hospital bills, and accounts with merchants,
should have low priority.
*The threat of a lawsuit should not raise the priority of a debt,
above that of mortgage, rent, utility payments, andcar loan.
*Be sure to read our next article (Part 2), which will be how to
deal with collectors that aren't being paid first.
This article is not to be interpreted as legal advice, but is public.

. making powers of the Florida
Wildlife Conservation i
Commission, The FWCC was
responsible in determining the
mesh size in one of the most
controversial amendments, the
Net Limitation amendment.
Rep. Kendrick has
requested .that the OPPGA
coordinate their research with
the Florida State University,.
Florida Atlantic University, the
University of Florida and
IFAS. The goal of the study is
to evaluate the use of fishing
nets in harvesting mullet. In
this study, the colleges will
examine how various fishing*
nets will affect the by-catch
ratio, populations of species,
bas well as the economic
impacts of the current rules
and statutes..-
Once the study is
completed, the findings will be
submitted in a final report and
recommendations will be
submitted back to the
Legislature. "This bill is
important in that it would
allow for the protection of the
environment for future
generations while allowing
commercial fishermen to
continue earning a living;
which. contributes to the
economy of our communities
across the state," said
Kendrick.
Some of the controversy
surrounding the two-inch mesh
is that because of its small size,
juvenile fish get captured and
slaughtered unnecessarily. "If

ixie County Sightings
"That's Gonna Hurt!!"
This week's Dixie Sightings comes from the Advocate's picture archives. With the 10th Annual Red
Belly Day coming up this Saturday, April 30th, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at several of
last years "Belly Floppers".
We are sorry to say that we aren't sure who these two young men are, but we were impressed with their
"flopping" styles. As you can see from the first picture (left), to get maximum belly coverage one must
spread their body out flat, that way every bit of their front side will hit the water at the same time giving.
that much desired big "splash". It also leaves the entire front of the body bright red, which gives the
flopper that sympathy reaction from the crowd.
Our next flopper (right) shows us the best way NOT to attempt a belly flop. The head position which is
pointed downward and the hinny position, pointing upwards, will most likely cause the flopper no bodily
damage. but ribbing from his friends and another chance at being highlighted in the Advocate.
EM!I~liem k '. idilila


Hopefully the Suwannee River will have receded enough to have the popular Belly Flopping and Watermelon Chunkin contests.
Regardless, we hope to see you all down at the Fanning Springs State Park this Saturday for a day of fun and entertainment.

The aboi-e pictures show just how much fun the Beta members had helping their candidate, Sarah


Durham. in her campaign for State Beta Secretary.
w'as a big hit.. .after all who can resist sweets!
John Wadsworth placed 3rd in On-Site
Acr\NI h, while Kristie Baird placed 2nd in On-Site
Creaii'.e Scratch Art.
S.irah's slogan, "Make Beta Sweeter With
Sarjh." couldn't be truer, as Sarah is known for
hei ,'.'.eet disposition and infectious smile.
Ho. ekei. the true jest of the slogan was Sarah's
idea-that a lot of times we use,sweetener to add
extra fli' or. and she felt that by electing her, she
. could he that sweetener. Dawned in pink t-shirts,
lollh,pup '.haped campaign signs, and :he use of
e, er, kind of candy imaginable, the Sarah Team
brought her message home..
Sarah's "swearing-in" was extra special as,
fellow Bear and 2003-2004 State Beta Secretary,
Kris Keen, was on hand to turn over the duties to
Sarah.
Former Dixie County High School graduate,
Joey Whittington was the keynote speaker for the
Cmrnenuion. Joev was an active Junior and Senior
Bet. member during his school years, serving as
DCHS Beta President his senior year. He spoke
about heroes he has encountered throughout his
life, beginning with his parents, Mike & Judith-
Whittington of Cross City. Joey spoke of how


Their theme, "Make Beta Sweeter With Sarah"

they have always been there for him, especially
when he was younger and they found out that he
had Celiac Disease. He talked about fellow
DCHS'er, Caleb Buzbee and how he (Caleb) had
to overcome loosing the use of his legs after an
automobile accident his senior year. Joey also
spoke of fellow, football player and friend, Nick
Collins who overcame many'adversities in hik
young life, but chose a path that led him to
college and more recently to being,drafted into
the NFL. Another friend, Michael Byrd, showed
him how to smile and how to keep a positive
outlook even though life throws you curves. The
bottom line...you never know who you might be
a hero to and that we should all put our best foot
forward.
Beta Sponsor Shannon Ellison stated that she
couldn't be prouder of this year's group. She
noted that they all went with a winning attitude,
which obviously paid off.
Congratulations to Sarah and her Sweet
Team! You all make us proud!

The group of Beta Bears will be attending the
National Convention in New Orleans June 19-22.
