part of our Mother's 'Day
Celebration. This year's
honorees are Mrs. Glennie

Mrs. Glennie
Hines Stevenson
Joe and Mollie Hines. At the
time Hines was located in
Lafayette County, but in 1921
that portion of Lafayette
became what we know as
Dixie County.
The Hines homestead was
located across 8-Mile Creek
Bridge, approximately 1-V2
miles from Tiger Ridge. The
community of Hines was
founded b\ Mrs. Glennie's
great grandfather. John Wesle)
Hines. The old homestead is
gone now, but not the
memories of three generations.
Mrs. Glennie was the 5th of
8 children. Her two sisters and
five brothers have all passed,
as her parents have.
Life back in the early
1920's was. quit different from
today. Mrs. Glennie noted that
during the Depression Era,
life's basic necessities were
cherished like gold. "You


didn't waste an\thine'." she
stated. Known, ,for her
excellent cooking now, back
then Mrs. Glennie's sister
Maggie did the cooking. "They
didn't want me to cook,
because they didn't want me to
burn it up," she said. "You
see, food was hard to come by
those days and we had to be
careful." \la2.zie would later
be an important influence in
Mrs. Glinnie's cooking, along
with her mother-in-law.
School was also .a part of
those early years. She attended
school at both Tiger Ridge and
Cooks Hammock. The one-

memories they are.
In January of 1935, Mrs.
Glennie married Angus

children, June Stevenson

Principal Will Be Recommending Expulsion


DCHS Student

Arrested For Arson
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
A 16-year-old female student at Dixie County High School is
facing serious charges after starting a fire in a girls' bathroom,
causing the evacuation of the main building on Monday, April 25h.
According to DCHS Principal Charlotte Lord, the teen had lit a
paper towel and dropped it into the plastic waste basket. When the
.fire was detected Assistant Principal Lawrence Storey was able to
put it out with a fire extinguisher. However the smoke and fumes
caused the students to be evacuated.
The Cross City Fire Department Station 41was called and they
began ventilating the building with large fans before students and
staff were allowed back into the classrooms and offices.
A video from the school's surveillance system identified the
student as the last one to leave the restroom and just moments
before the fire was discovered. According to Lord, it was during
questioning by the school's resource officers, P.J. Hope and
administration that the girl admitted to the starting the fire.
The juvenile was charged with arson, criminal mischief and
disruption of a school function. She was taken to the Dixie County
Jail where she was held until she could be transported to a juvenile
detention center in Gainesville.
Lord was thankful that no one was hurt in the incident, giving
credit to Mr. Storey's quick response, which kept the fire froin
getting out of control.
Lord stated that she would be recommending the expulsion of
the student at the next School Board Meeting. "We have a #io
tolerance stance when it comes to a student endangering the lives
of other students and staff," Lord stated.

10th Annual Red Belly Day


Continues To Entertain
By Terri Langford
This past Saturday, April 30th, the Fanning Springs State Park once again played host for the Dixie County Chamber of Commerce
Red Belly Day event. This was the 10th year for the festival and volunteers worked diligently to making it a day for families to come
out and enjoy great food and great entertainment. A county reunion, if you will, with an extended invitation to our neighbors and guests
in our area.
This year's volunteers were faced with some challenges from Mother Nature. With the Suwannee River still flooded, two of the more
popular events had to be cancelled, the "Belly Flopping" and "Melon Chunkin". The beautiful/Fanning Springs was also closed to
swimmers, as its normal crystal clear waters were black with the overflow of the Suwannee's tannin waters. The additional threat of
thunderstorms predicted for
the day, added to the water
problems that threatened to
put a halt on the event. Even
the red belly b fishing
tournament, for which the
festival is named, was
affected by the swift currents
brought on by the flooding.
However, Chamber members
and volunteers decided they -
were not going, to let Mother
Nature put a "damper" on the
festivities and so they forged
on. A
At 9:00' am the park
opened and the day began
with the singing of our
National Anthem by Miss
Maddie Kelley and Miss Laci
Johnson. The United States
Marie Corps Color Guard
presented the colors as we all
pledged allegiance to our
great country.
The Dock Street Band
started off the day's musical
entertainment. While some
stayed and watched the
group's performance, others
listened in the background
while beginning their trek
through the rows of crafters
and endless supply of ,ood Fjve-year-old Whittibey Hodge got in the spirit of the festival and had a Red Belly fish painted on her cheek.
that included great barbeque, k
seafood, hot dogs and hamburgers and "heart stopping" desserts like deep fried Oreos and Twinkies, chocolate dipped cheesecake and
homemade ice cream!
The arts and crafts booths were filled with items of interests for everyone. From jewelry and yard ornaments to hats and t-shirts, and
a host of informational booths, festival goers enjoyed browsing and buying.
The Tri-County Cruisers brought out some of their classic cars for folks to enjoy. While the cars brought back memories for our
seniors, the younger onlookers were in awe of the classic styles and simplicity of the mechanics. Another great vehicle on display was
one of Dixie County's fire engines. .Kids were allowed to look inside the truck while volunteer firefighters explained the various uses of
the equipment. Columbia Motor Speedway brought out one of their Pro-Fast racing cars, putting a little speed into the collection of
motorized vehicles.
Two favorites of the younger attendees for the 10th year in a row were Mortie the Clown and the Matthew Express. Mortie thrilled
young and old alike with his magic tricks and balloon sculptures while the Matthew Express provided a site seeing tour through the
festival. The Dunking Booth, manned by,the Cross City Correctional staff presented the opportunity for folks to try their throwing skills.
The Rug Rat Race has always been a favorite and this year's contestants didn't let us down. As the cuties were placed in the center
circle they were entertained as much as the rest of us as their parents coached. them to crawl using any and all methods of persuasion for
their child to be the first to come to them.
Jerry Harris was the acting MC for the day and did his usual fantastic job of keeping us up to date of the "goings-ons" and
entertaining us with his quick wit. Thanks, Jerry! S

'rhe Jessica ordeal
i A week ago, the media were all atwitter about Jessica Wilbanks,
32 year-old woman from Duluth, Georgia, who chose a rather
Bizarre way:t' opt out of her wedding.
I Jennifer had been engaged to.marry John Mason. a, local fellow,
br at least a couple of years. The wedding was to take place last
Saturday, but Jessica disappeared the previous Tuesday. She left the
jouse to pursue the worthy exercise routine we call "jogging," and
didn't come back.
Her disappearance got a lot of attention in a hurry. The local
Police, the sheriff's department, the-state police and even the FBI
.joined in the search, as'did a lot of local volunteers. I expect her
ikeness would have been on every milk carton in Georgia, had she
pot turned up a couple of days later.
As the search progressed in vain, police repeatedly questioned
fohn Mason, who was the last person to have seen Jessica before
ler disappearance. He even took (and passed) a lie detector test. He
was not officially designated a suspect, but the. police weren't
asking them all those questions because they had nothing better to
lo. A guy might want to think twice about getting married to a
voman who would put him in this situation.
SJessica called home (collect) from Albuquerque, New Mexico,
ith a bizarre tale about how she had been abducted by two people
in a van. The police proceeded with arrangements to get her back
, ome, but in the meantime, they asked her a few questions, and her
ddnapping yarn began to unravel.
It seems Jessica wasn't kidnapped at all. In fact, she planned
.he disappearance and rode a bus to places like Las Vegas before
ending up broke in Albuquerque. She is now back in Duluth,
where she could find herself in trouble with the law for misleading
:he police, who actually do have better things to do than engage in
wild goose chases concocted by post-adolescent air-heads acting out
fantasies.
Am I being too hard on poor Jessica? Perhaps. After all, there
s one valid reason why shl might have decided against going
through with the wedding: The guest list numbered 600, and there
were more bridesmaids and groomsmen than the total number in
attendance at a lot of weddings.
Maybe this wasn't her idea. Parents have a way of overdoing
these occasions, and this one was clearly being overdone. Some
rides eat this up, of course, but I would have to sympathize with
those who do not. However, there are better ways to avoid the
superficial pomp and circumstance.
It turns out that Jessica bought her bus ticket a week before her
sudden departure, using an assumed name in order to avoid
,suspicion. She apparently had the whole thing planned in exquisite
retaill, except for running out of money in New Mexico two days
gafer she left. Or maybe that was part of her plan, too, thus the
abduction tale. Just create a lot of confusion and keep it going long
enough to avoid having to go through with the elaborate wedding.
John Mason says he's still going to marry Jessica, and of course
1we all hope it will work out. It's not likely that the wedding party's
original cast can be re-assembled, so maybe the families will settle
for something more sensible.
j Did anything good come of this fiasco? It was quite expensive
in terms of what it cost law enforcement, wedding guests and locals
1who volunteered in the search. But at least it kept the Michael
Jackson trial off the front page for a few days.


Letter to the Editor
Dear Mr. King:
I think this editorialist is right, don't get the death penalty for
Couey for killing that little girl. Simply turn him loose amid the
general population in Florida State Prison, and he will suffer quite
a bit more than he would if we, the State, try to exact punishment
from him. Bundy would have been handled much bettef,-likewise,
and at quite a saving of public funds compared to the way he cost
the State.
Ya-know, I seem to recall from our Country's History that we
used to have a big Leprosarium in, I believe, Louisiana, where we
put anyone who became a Leper, i.e., who contracted Leprosy, and
these unfortunates were by and large innocent of crimes. So, why
can't this Nation build such a facility and consign all Sex Offenders
to it for life, instead of "protecting their rights" as our bleeding
hearts want us to do. We really should purge our population of
such vermin as this man represents! Posthaste! Thank you for
allowing me to express myself to you.
Sincerely,
S. E. Sapp Newbeiry, Florida

Letter To The Editor
As Vice President of the Dixie County Chamber of Commerce,
and as Red Belly Day 2005 Chairman, I would like to say a most
sincere "Thanks for a job well done", to all Red Belly Day
volunteer workers, and to all of the sponsors and contributors to
Dixie County's 10th Annual Red Belly Day.
An event of this magnitude requires selfless dedication and
sacrifice of scarce personal time from a lot of people to be
successful. Our volunteers have -again demonstrated that Dixie
County can do it.
It is never too early to start planning, and the May 12; Chamber
of Commerce meeting will be the first planning meeting of our
2006 Red Belly Day festival. I strongly encourage every citizen of
Dixie County, and especially our elected City and County officials
to take an active part in our Chamber of Commerce, and to help
plan Red Belly Day 2006. The beginning of the second decade of
Red Belly Day could well mark a new beginning and a new
direction for Red Belly Day. We welcome all suggestions.

Cell Phones: Are the Risks Real?
By Brittany Pinner
Cross City, Fla. Kids are using cell phones a lot! That can be
good and bad. The good side is that if you were late, got in a
wreck, or got .kidnapped, you could call your parents so they
wouldn't worry or they could come and get you. The bad side is
that there are reports of brain
damage from too much cell
Phone use.
*Cell phones are used by all
age groups around the world. It
is a $100 billion a year industry.
S w, i' Cell phones are great to have
because they are small, portable,
.'-. ... and keep you in touch with
-. ''anyone else that has a phone.
S. Parents are comforted knowing
S their child is able to reach them
S if needed.
':", On the other hand, a report
.,,..:,.' ?'.,, by the European Union in
December of 2004 said that
Brittany Pinner radio waves from cell phones
harm body cells and damage
DNA in laboratory conditions. These radio waves (electromagnetic
radiation) in the laboratory caused cell damage that was not always
repaired by the cell. The mutated cells are seen as a possible cause,
of cancer. A study in Finland showed that one hour of exposure to
mobile phone radiation caused human cells to shrink in the lab.
The researchers believe that this happens because the cells are
damaged and as a result tumors can grow. These results are only
in a laboratory and the mobile phone industry says that more
studies need to be done before people should take them seriously.
(http://tuberose.com/Cell_Phones.html)
Cell phone makers say that the risks are still being studied and
they are also looking into ways to make cell phones safer. One
recommendation is using a headset connected to a cell phone
whenever you can instead of putting the cell phone to your ear.
Should you continue to use your cell phone? The risks seem to
be very real but if the phones are used wisely for limited amounts
of time, the convenience outweighs the danger.

For The Love

of the

Children...
By Sue Chewning
This week the Florida
Legislature made great strides
in helping to protect our
children from sexual
offenders/predators when the
passed the Jessica Lunsford
Act. This new law will serve
to strengthen the laws on
these offenders/predators on
who long the would remain in
prison and what will happen
to them if and when the get
out of prison. ,
We are all very pleased
with the quick action taken to
help protect our children and
keep them safe. Hats off the
our lawmakers and our
Governor.
But... with Mother's Day
being celebrated this weekend
let's all take a moment and
reflect on our responsibilities
as Moms. From the moment
that precious new life is place
in our arms, our God-given
protection mode is activated.
As new moms, we baby-proof
our homes, try to make sure
that they are not exposed to
too many germs, etc. One of
our major jobs is to keep
them safe.
It's then on to the next
step, that first day of
school.... and we are not quite
sure that their experienced
teacher can really care for our
child as well as we can. But
they usually do, and as the
years go quickly by,
sometimes it seems as though
the older they get that maybe
we don't have to be quite as
protective. WRONG!
Folks, please know that,
even if it not so popular with
your child at the time, you
still need to know (1) where
your child is, (2) who your
child is with and (3) what
they are doing. Also, even if
it take a great. deal of your
time PARTICIPATE in
your child's activities at
...school, extracurricular
activities, home and church.
Let them know that your

"MOTHERS"
Continued from page 1
from, before moving back
to Dixie County.
Mrs. Glennie has worked
most of her life, in the fields
during her youth and later in
the restaurant business. Her
daughters June and Ann would
follow in their mother's
culinary footsteps and work
along side her in several area
restaurants.
Mrs. Glennie was both
maid and cook at the Diana
Hotel & Restaurant and
Webb's Restaurant, both no
longer in business. She has
also worked at the Carriage Inn
Restaurant as well. In the late
1950's She and June rented the
Old City Restaurant, which
they ran for seven years. Later
June would run the Dixie
Drive Inn, "for three years in
the 1970's and then later from
1999 until her death in 2004.
Ann also had the knack for the
food industry and ran the Dixie
Drive Inn for 17 years.
When asked what her
specialty is, Mrs. Glennie was
quick to answer, turnip greens.
With a broad smile she noted
that was what the
grandchildren loved. Ann
remembers her mother's
teacakes and pear-tarts.
When's supper, Mrs. Glennie!
Angus passed away in
1987, but Mrs. Glennie noted
they had 52 wonderful years
together. Their son, Robert
passed away in 1973 and last
December (2004), she laid her
oldest daughter, June, to rest.
Mrs. Glennie's dedication
to her family is most apparent
Sby the way she cared for her
family members who became
ill. She cared foer mother
for several years before she
passed on. After her mother's
death she took on the loving
task of caring for her brother
Mose Hines who, from birth
had developmental problems.
Mose never learned to walk or
feed himself, but that wasn't
an issue for Mrs. Glennie, she
loved him and cared for him
even when he became
bedridden. Mrs. Glennie
proudly stated that both her
mother and brother never had a
bed-sore under her care .
Mrs. Glennie lives with her
daughter Ann and'her husband
Billy in, Cross, City. The two
are like best friends and do just
about everything together.
In her younger years she
sewed a lot .and quilted. "I
started sewing when I was .12
on an old pedal machine," she
said. She wasn't sure how old
she was when she started to
quilt but stated that she use to
help her mother. "I've made a
many quilts over the years,"
she added.
She doesn't sew much
anymore, but she will throw a
fishing line into the river.
Now, I mean to tell you she
and Ann are passionate about
their fishing. The two go at
least twice a week and can
boast without fear of
exaggeration, that they have
caught some big fish in the
Suwannee River. Recently,
Ann caught two shell crackers
right at 1- pounds. ,They
didn't mind telling me that
they use an assortment of
worms, but I never got a
concrete answer on what part
of the Suwannee's bank they
,fish from.
SMrs. Glennie's other
]assion these days is her
*church. When asked what
'advise she would give a new
mother, the first thing that
a me to her mind was, "Keep
Them in church and teach them
about the Lord." She also
stated that you must take care
,pf them and love them.
k.:,At 86, Mrs. Glennie
-ontinues to enjoy life. 'The
SClord has really blessed me,"
she stated. She also noted that
|she watches what she eats and
k'leeps active.
Y' While Mrs. Glennie misses


iher family, husband and
'children, she still finds herself
$,blessed with six grandchildren,
I'argaret, Don, Lynn, Kim,
Jeff and Cindy (who is
Jdeceased). Twelve great
grandchildrenn and four great
9-great grandchildren, afid she
,could even name them all!!
May God continue to bless
'iou as you have been such a
i blessing for to many.
Our second mother is Mrs.
-,Hattie "Bell" Collins Johnson..
IBorn on .December 13, 1949,'
Mrs. Hattie is the younger of
,,dur two mothers featured this
'year.
While Mrs. Hattie was born


in Barwick, Georgia, she was
quick to tell that she was raised
in Cross City. She was one of
nine born to Willie and Essie
Bell Collins. While all her
siblings are still living, both
her parents have passed on.
Mrs. Hattie went to Dixie
schools and eventually earned
her GED and later attended
Lake City Commpnity
College. Her college career
was shorted when her mother
became ill with cancer. Mrs.
Hattie has never regretted
staying home with her mother,
who gave so much of herself to
her family.
Mrs. Hattie was married for
34 years to Fred Johnson, who
passed away in March of 1999.
They had a daughter, Gail
Johnson Barnes who remains
here in Dixie County along
with her son Willie.
Mrs. Hattie also helped to
raise four other children in her
neighborhood, several who are
kin and several who are
neighbors. She -is also the
proud Godmother for Lakisha
Thomas and Chris Irving.
Always willing and ready to
help, everyone knows Mrs.
Hattie for her kind heart and
sweet spirit.
Mrs. Hattie has pretty
much always worked, starting
off at the Cross City Veneer
Plant. She would eventually
use her passion for helping
others by working with senior
citizens. For the past twenty
years she has worked at both
the Tri-County Senior Center
and now for the Suwannee
River Economic Center. She
delivers hot meals daily to area
seniors and helps make sure
that they have the basic
necessities for living.
Her jovial, outgoing
personality is infectious. It is
easy to see that she loves
people, and they love her in


return. Mrs. Hattie stated that
she will work as long as she
can. "I love getting out and
being involved," she stated.
Besides giving of herself,
Mrs. Hattie is also famous for
being one of the areas greatest
softball catchers. Years ago,
she played for the Blazers in
the Pop Varnes County
League. The Blazers were a
tough team to beat and other
teams knew they had their
work cut out for them when
they were scheduled to play
against them. "Those were
some good memories," she
stated. She also admitted that
she wouldn't be able to get up
and down as quickly these
days.
Watching sports is more
her speed theses days. There.
are not too many local school
games that you won't see Mrs.
Hattie attend. She is an avid
Bear fan and more recently she
became a Green Bay Packer's
fan after her nephew Nick
-Collins was drafted by the
NFL team.
When asked what advise
she would give new mothers of
today, she said "They need to
be strong, hang in there and do
the best that they can," she
stated. She also added to use a
firm, but gentle hand in
disciplining them and be an
active part of their education.
There are many young
people who have benefited
from Mrs. Hattie's love of
people. She asks nothing in
return, and it is those qualities,
which' makes her one of
Dixie's great mothers.
Happy Mother's Day!
If we had no winter, the
spring would not be so
pleasant; if we did not
sometimes taste of adver-
sity, prosperity wouldn't
be so welcome.
-Anne Bradstreet


"RED BELLY"
Continued from page 1

"Jack Pot" Jerry Fulford announced some
98 winners from the drawings held throughout
the day. Wow, big kudos go out to our
businesses that donated the prizes for the
drawings. Judy Long was the winner of the
cooker, sponsored by Danny King, Foodland,
Dewey Hatcher, Anderson Columbia and Rick
Gooding's Funeral Home. Rick .Craig is the
proud new owner of the autographed guitar,
sponsored by Dixie Music's Bob & Dottie
Leichner.
Mid-day the Miss Dixie Pageant and
Children's Pageant winners were introduced.
As always the judges were right on target with
their selection, and once again some of Dixie's
most beautiful and talented young ladies will be
representing our county for the next year. After
making their debut, the group of beauties was
taken back stage where they had the opportunity
to have their pictures taken with the Crosstyz
and Joey Dee & Starliters. The guys in both
bands admitted that the girls made them all look
better!
Throughout the day the best of the best in
local talent belted out song, after song from
blues and rock to Gospel and country. Dotti
South & Rick Randlett and the Rick .Gordon


4
Band both kept the energy flowing and the beat
up while Southland feed our souls with their:1
inspirational Gospel music. Crosstyz.'s".
contemporary country music was a big hit withh:
young and old alike and the crowd let them
know that they were glad to have the group back,-
as one of the festivals regulars.
The featured group for the day was Joey Dee
and Starliters with Ron Dee & Bobby Valli. It
was like stepping back into time as they sang
favorites like "The Peppermint Twist". The
music they sang paved the way for the rock and ;
roll era and are truly timeless. Looking over the
crowd everyone enjoyed the upbeat tempo and
energy from the group.
Many thanks to all the vendors and
entertainers for helping to make the trip
worthwhile, to all the volunteers for their
tireless efforts in bringing the whole festival
together and especially to those who weren't
afraid of a little rain and came out in support of
the annual event.
'In the words of the late O.K. Jones, former
owner and Editor of the Advocate, this year's
success can be summed up as, "and a good time
was had by all."

The Tobacco Transition Payment


Program (aiso called "Tobacco Buyout").





You've heard about it.


Now be a part of it.



This is it. The Federal tobacco marketing quota system is over. No more plant-
ing restrictions. No more marketing cards. No more price support loans.
Instead, the USDA's new Tobacco Transition Payment Program will provide
money to eligible tobacco quota holders and producers to help in this transi-
tion that ends the old system. But sign up now or you will not get a 2005 payment.


Did you own a farm as of October 22, 2004, with a 2004 basic
marketing quota?

Are you an owner, operator, landlord, tenant, or sharecropper who
shared in the risk of producing tobacco anytime between 2002 and
2004?

Do you grow Flue-cured, Burley, Fire-cured, Dark air-cured, Virginia
sun-cured, or Cigar filler/binder tobacco?


Please sign up between March 14, 2005, and June 17, 2005,

at your local USDA Service Center.

Faith Baptist Church News
We had a wonderful day at Faith today. In spite of the rain, we
had a very large crowd and the Spirit was strong. Bro. Jackie
brought a wonderful message, and Bro. Jim Carter did the special
music, singing The Anchor Holds. It was a very moving service. In
the evening service, Sis. Heather Fore sang I Bowed On My Knees
and Cried Holy. What a blessing that was. God has just blessed
Faith with so much talent and we are so thankful.
Remember our Vacation Bible School (VBS) is coming up in
June and teachers, and workers of all sorts are needed. Be sure to
see Cheryl Lord if you feel that God is leading you to help in any
way. There will be crafts to teach, cooking to be done, serving, etc.
and surely there is something that you can do. God will bless you
for your efforts.
Remember this week to pray for the sick and bereaved, also be
sure to invite a friend to Sunday School and Church with you.
Wouldn't it be a blessing if someone was saved because of your
invitation. We'll be looking for you next week for Prayer Meeting
on Wednesday night, and Sunday School and Church on Sunday.
May God bless you richly this week and give you love, comfort
and happiness.

Happy Mothers Day
Her Royal Highness the biological
Mother. There is no language eloquence to
0 describe her genius, there are no wages or
salaries that can compensate her worth. We
can never value her love, sacrifices, and care.
I am sure most of the human, family is
grateful for this special day that is set apart
for all of us to show and express how much
Lucille we care and love our mothers.
Stockton Those of you that are not so fortunate as
to have your mothers, Adopt a mother for this
*special day and bless her with something, create a card with your
own sentiments written on it, go to visit a mother that lives alone
and do something loving for her take a good book and read her a
story, write a letter, sweep the porch and walk way, do an errand.
There is much we can do to help, and make some mother very
happy and loved.
One Mothers Day my son sent me a check and a note that said,
"God knew He couldn't be everywhere so He made mothers" I still
have that note, it meant more to me than the check. Take time to
bless a Grand mother, Foster mother, Den mother, Step mother and
Spiritual mother.
Love life and live it.

New Prospect Baptist News
Our spring revival last week was everything that we had hoped
it would be re- commitments were made, new souls added to God's
Kingdom, and our Lord's Spirit was felt throughout the week. Our
choir was splendid, Bro. Jack Yarbrough was a Spirit-led, dynamic
speaker, and the special songs were just that, VERY special, all
working together for God's glory. The week was capped off
Sunday by our 105th Homecoming Service, in which Bro. Gene
VanAernam delivered a superb sermon/speech, combining some of
his early experiences at New Prospect with extolling God's Word.
'We thank God for a good week of renewal in His will and work!
On Friday, May 6th, a Men's Rally will be held an Lake,
beginning at 6:00 P. M. On Saturday, May 7th, at 7:00 P. M., we

The Word Made
Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
I the son of man, say in the
Lord there is a trinity. The
divine itself which is called the
Father, the Divine Human
which is called the Son, and
the Divine Proceeding which is
called the Holy Spirit.
I, the son of man, say this
trine consists of esse existere,
and proceeding for esse must
need exist, and when it exists
must proceed that it may
produce. This trine is one in
essence and one in person and
is God.
I, the son of man, say God
is a man as the universal
angelic heaven in its
complexity is a man and every
angel and every spirit is hence
a man. The idea of God as a
man is engrafted from heaven
in every nation throughout the
universal terrestrial globe.
I, the son of man, say if
you separate the divine from
His human and do not think
that the divine is in His human
as the soul is in the body and
that they are one person, you
could be in error. But, take
heed to yourself, lest you think
of the Lord as a man like
yourself. Think of the Lord as
a man who is God.
I, the son of man,,, say all
who see God as a man, see
Him from the Lord who is the
Grand Man..
Choose rather to be
strong of soul than strong
of body.
-Pythagoras

In Loving

Memory Of

Kenneth M.

Rayman

A million times we have
needed you,
A million times
we have cried.
If love alone could have
saved you,
You would have
never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
For in our hearts you
have a place,
No one else can fill.
A heart of gold
stopped beating,
Two shining eyes at rest.
God broke our
hearts to prove,
To us He only takes
the very best.
If our tears could
build a stairway,
And our heartaches could
make a lane.
We would run the
pathway to Heaven,
To be with you again.
You are not forgotten,
Tho on earth you
are no more.
For in our hearts
you are with us,
As you.were before.
It broke our hearts
to lose you,
You didn't go alone.
For part of us
went with you,
That sad day God
took you home.
I will love you forever
Your wife Vi, and your
children Lake, Bill, Jim,
Kenneth, and Brenda.


Experience is not what
happens to a man; it is
what a man does with
what happens to him.

FWC Weekly Report
April 22-28, 2005
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
LEVY COUNTY
April 25, Officer Rama Shuster was on land patrol checking
fishermen at the C.R. 40 boat ramp. During his checks, Shuster
observed a green Chevrolet S-10 pickup parked in the boat ramp
turning area with its lights on. In the bed of the truck was a blue
crab trap with fresh barnacles and a "V" number tag attached to the
trap. Shuster then questioned the driver about the trap. The driver
and passenger of the truck stated that the trap belonged to a friend
and they had permission to possess it. Shuster ran the "V" number
through dispatch to obtain the identity of the owner. Subsequent
contact with the trap owner revealed the driver and passenger did
not have permission to possess the trap. The driver of the truck was
issued a citation for the misdemeanor possession of a saltwater
fisheries trap without permission as outlined in ss. 370.1107 (2)
(a). The trap was seized.

Buddy Martin P
Commentary
Now hear this: Beware of these
Florida menaces
(Buddy Martin's sports column will
return next week, when he returns from a
brief vacation in Colorado)
As a public service to our reading ,
audience, it has fallen to this column
to become the Paul Revere of the
Sunshine State to sound a horn Buddy Martin
when the enemy threatens us.
Clearly, the State of Florida has become the most popular
whipping boy of the national media in recent years. Funny thing is
that we didn't think things were so bad down here until we began
hearing, seeing and reading about our troubles on the national
stage.
Personally, I believe most of it started with the hanging chads.
If not then, certainly with the terrorists in flight training and/or the
anthrax scare.
We are the butt of the jokes, much like the fat guy who slips
and falls on the banana peel.
Now we appear to be the laughing stock of the nation and an
ideal target for Leno's and Letterman's writers.
Apparently there will always be some sort of craziness in our
state. To paraphrase a theme of a once-popular TV shows, I guess
there are 17 million stories in The Naked State.
A few weeks ago we wrote about the numerous menaces that
are perceived as threats to the Florida lifestyle and mentioned the
obsession some people have with sharks. Somebody sees a few
fins and suddenly we've got a shark epidemic. Truthfully, though,
I've lived in Florida most of my life and don't recall every having
seen a live shark except in captivity.
We are being stalked, apparently, by everything from sharks to
gators to hurricanes. And that's not even counting the credit card
companies offering us new plastic every week.
So we shall keep the vigilance for these menaces.
One reader wrote that I had left Red Tide off my list, so in my
first "Menace to Florida" poll I have added that as No. 7. We will
adjust these rankings on occasion. Hurricanes, currently at No. 8,
will move up around August.
One new entry and one that jumped on the charts at No. 2
with a bullet is mosquitoes. Those little pests are already
lurking in your backyard birdbath and are preparing to leap out of
gestation and on to your skin, infecting you with something bad.
One day I think they will blame mosquitoes for national trade
deficit.
So life isn't all that bad, although you'd never know if it you ere
a Martian monitoring us from space.
Qh, we've got trouble all right. The worst of it is these
abductions of young women by sexual offenders and /or predators.
It's nothing to make light of, which is why we made that No. 1 on
our first "Top Ten Florida Menaces."
We joke a little about the others, especially vending machines
at No. 10, although our research told us more people die from
being crushed by them than. by shark attacks.
Suburban Sprawl, No. 4, and Traffic, No. 5, will likely be
permanent fixtures on the list, which is as follows:
t Top Ten Florida Menaces for May
SI-Crime/Sexual Offenders & Predators every week another one.
S2-Mosquitoes get ready for the buzz.
3-Sharks a media favorite.
4-Suburban Sprawl it'll only get worse.
S5-Traffic and this, too.
6-Alligators mating season is over, so they dropped.
7-Red Tide the season has wound down.
8-Hurricanes dust off your tracking chart.
9-Phosphate mining ever so quietly we're giving in.
10-Vending machines just because. (People actually die from
having them fall on top of them almost every year.)
[*. Much like the BCS system in college football, will be tweaking
iour list with some regularity. Feel free to offer wvrite-in votes.
tPlease, though, no personal attacks on in-laws, bosses or
newspaper columnists.

Lady Bears End Season

With 8-6 Record
With a 8-12 disappointing loss to Dunnellon in the District
play-offs, the Lady Bears ended the season with an 8-6 record.
The Lady Bears managed to keep the game close, even though
they had numerous errors that seemed to plague each inning.
Coach P.J. told the girls after the game that he was very
proud of the way they kept a positive attitude and how they
stayed focused on the game and never gave up. He also stated
that he is looking forward to an even better season next year.

Coke Keeps the Pests
Away
This is wild. Farmers in India
have taken to spraying their
cotton and chili fields with
Coca-Cola to protect them from
pests. They say it's much
cheaper than chemical
pesticides and is just as
effective at controlling bugs.
Farmer Gotu Laxmaiah, a
farmer from
Ramakrishnapuram, (and good
luck with those names) said he
was delighted after spraying
Coke on his cotton crops and
added, "I observed that the
pests began to die after the soft
drink was sprayed on my
cotton." Other farmers say their
cola sprays are invaluable
because they are safe to handle,
don't need to be diluted and are
cheap. Wonder if the Coke folks
are delighted or outraged? And
where's Pepsi. in all this?

FDOT Hosting

Regional Forum
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is
hosting' regional forums to
introduce the public to an
important and dynamic project.
The Florida Transportation
Plan (FTP) establishes long-
range goals that will guide the
investment of more than $100
,billion in Florida's
transportation system over the
next 20 years.
The FDOT is updating this
plan to respond to new trends
and challenges to meet
Florida's future transportation
mobility needs. The FTP is the
plan for all of Florida.
Implementation of the FTP
depends on many entities.
,Though the FDOT has
principal responsibility for
statewide movement of people
and goods, it shares
responsibility with other public
and private interests in
addressing system safety,
preservation and local and
metropolitan mobility needs.
The regional. forums will
give citizens an opportunity to
learn about the 2025 FTP
development process and to
provide input on identifying
and addressing key issues
directly related to Florida's
-transportation system. The
2025 FTP regional forum in
the Gainesville/Alachua
County area will be held at:
Gainesville Technology
Enterprise' Center (GTEC)
2153 Hawthorne Road
Thursday, May 5, 2005
For additional information,

LCCC Implements New

Registration Procedures
Lake City Community College (LCCC) is now registering for
fall semester 2005 classes through August 11. All fees will be due
by 3 p.m. on August 11 or students who have not paid will be
purged from the computer system and be required to re-register for
classes. The basic difference in the procedures is that fees will be
due earlier than they have in the Rast years. Therefore, if a student
wishes to maintain their preferred schedule that they have pre-
registered for, they must adhere to these new procedures.
Late registration, add/drop begin August 15 and ends August
19 at 3 p.m. All fees are due at the time of registration.
This new registration procedure streamlines the registration
process and provides the ability for incoming students to register or
add/drop efficiently for available class seats. Thus, these students
will not miss the opportunity to attend the vital first week of
classes necessary for their success in that class. Fall classes begin
August 22.
These dates are subject to change. Returning students and new
students should check the Academic Critical Dates Calendar
located on the college's Web site at
www.lakecity.cc.fl.us/info/calendars and click on the above
calendar to verify that there has been no changes made in the dates.
For additional details contact Natasha Mitchell, LCCC
registrar, at 754-4291.

Springhouse Quilter's News
Time has a way of just escaping our days and it seems as
0ough these last few weeks have certainly been moving too fast.
SJhere just are not enough hours each day to get all the quilting
wishedd that Springhouse Quilter's would like to finish. It is very
l"sy to start a project, but 10 times harder to get it finished. One
iming that did get finished for about 30 of the Springhouse Quilters,
::as the Chicken Challenge assigned by Alice Gilbert and her
committee to the membership. This was a volunteer project, but
very interesting.
Oh, what fun we all had trying to make those chickens. The
assignment was to make an original chicken quilt "block" by the
April meeting. Now, these chickens could not be "cut-out" or
"applique" chickens using a chicken from printed fabric. They had
to be "designed" and made by the individual members. And the
final straw was to "smuggle" the chickens into the April meeting,
name covered, and deliver to Ms. Alice.
During the upcoming June regular business meeting, the blocks
will be displayed and members will get to make a "viewer's
choice" selection. Then in June, there will be a first, second and
third place viewer's choice announcement. These winners will be
featured in articles during the month of June.
During the April regular meeting there were very many,
beautiful, completed quilted projects. The show and tell was
awesome to say the least. Kay Fales, President, was absent, seeing
that her husband's surgery went well on the meeting date. Our
most efficient, Vice President, filled in for Kay and did a
wonderful job of keeping the meeting on target.
Also, duriiig the April regular meeting, Alice Gilbert and Elsie
Myers presented a "mini" guilt show of the many quilts and related
projects that they had completed. The guild house was beautifully
decorated showing off all of their projects. As you can imagine,
they do keep busy quilting.
On April the 26, Diane Schweder, instructed the members on
how to make a super tote bag; one that could be used to buy and
carry home a large stash of fabric. Twelve members were able to
enjoy this workshop and by the Nite Owls meeting time at 6:45
PM the same day, two of the members were able to "show and tell"
their completed tote bags. They were huge!
: April has been a beautiful month. The rains have kept the
flowers blooming and everything so green and fresh. What more
could we ask for. To all you quilters and those wishing to be
quilters, happy quilting.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, meeting date,
projects, etc., contact Kay Fales, 490 7909 or Lois Scott, 463-
2207.

WWII Veterans To Hold Meeting
All WWII veterans are invited to our Thursday, May 12th
meeting to be held at 11:30 a.m. at the home of Tom and Dorothy
Muff in Williston. This will be a covered dish luncheon Pot Luck
if you please.
Saturday, May 7th marks 60 years since the surrender of all
German Forces of World War II. Our POW's can best explain the
importance of this date.
Our guest speaker last month, George Hermansen from the
Levy County Veterans Services gave us some new insights as to
veterans benefits. Veteran benefits have increased. To find out
more, call your county Veteran Service Office.
Taps: we've lost another member. Anna Handschuh died April
1 8 after a long illness. Anna was 84 years old, slim and trim. One
ofthy favorite memories of Anna was the fact that after more than
50:years, she could still wear her army uniform.
-Hope to see you all on May 12th, bring a friend or fellow vet
ard join the camaraderie. If you have, any questions or need
directions call Dick Halvorsen at 352-542-7697 or Billie Cooper at
352-493-9368 or Tom'Muff at 352-528-0494.
4-Pets Sake
.. Can't remember ever having so much fun at a yard sale in my
entire life! -It was a sight to behold, asked if we will do this again,
our answer is yes, next year. It may become one of our annual
.events. Sorry we could not have any games set up but the rain
.caused the ground to be super wet for any outside activities. In
spite of the weather we grossed $846 for the day.
K We thank all the hard working volunteers who knew exactly
.what they were doing when they hit the ground running. Mrs. Rush
:and her 1st grade Bell Elem. class kept the place jumping and
1.:steady selling dog biscuits. Dr. Dawn Miller and Shirl Johnson
:brought some beautiful birds with them. People were fascinated by
the owls because they don't see them; they only hear them hoot at
-.night. This gave them a chance to be up close, and personal. Look
: Tfor our next newsletter to learn more about the happenings.
Our next yard sale will be Sat. May 28th in Bell, on Railroad
Ave., next to city hall. We will keep you informed as this unfolds.
A point of interest: White cats with blue eyes are often born
: deaf. Need to have your pet spayed or neutered? Please contact
: us. Until next time be happy just for the love of them. Phone 386-

Boyd Calls For Fiscally Responsible Budget
Budget Resolution Makes Deficit Worse, Fails to Include Any Meaningful Reform
WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Require a balanced budget
Boyd (D-North Florida) today criticized the Don't let Congress buy on credit
Iouse Leadership for bringing a budget Put a lid on spending
tosolution to the floor that worsens the deficit and Require agencies to put their fiscal
fails to include any meaningful reform. house in order


Congressman Boyd, along with his colleagues in
the Blue Dog Coalition, unveiled the Blue Dog
12-Step Reform Plan in February, which was a
more comprehensive and responsible alternative
than the meager attempt at reform contained in
the Republican Budget compromise offered
today.
"We must step forward and stop the reckless
fiscal policies that are digging us deeper into the
deficit hole," said Congressman Boyd. "The
budget resolution makes significant cuts in
domestic priorities like education, law
enforcement, jobs, transportation and Medicaid,
while at the same time, increasing our federal
deficit. No budget should call for these kinds of
sacrifices from the American people without the
-glimpse of a better financial outlook for our
-country. The 12 step budget plan will get the
'country back on the path to a balanced budget
,and ensure a healthy economy for our families,
farms and businesses in the coming years."
The national debt has soared over $2 trillion
under the watch of the current administration,
with trillions more projected in the next 10 years
under current policies. The 12 Step Reform Plan
is based on the Blue Dogs' commitment to
solving growing fiscal problems facing our
.country.
'. The provisions of the Blue Dog .12 Point
-Reform Plan for restoring fiscal responsibility
,are:


Make Congress tell taxpayers how much
they're spending
Set aside a rainy day fund
Don't hide votes to raise the debt limit
Justify spending for pet projects
Ensure that Congress read the bills it is
voting on
Require honest cost estimates for every
bill that Congress votes on
Make sure new bills fit the budget
Make Congress do a better job of
keeping tabs on government programs
As a leader of the conservative Blue Dog
Democrats, Congressman Boyd is a proponent of
fiscal responsibility in Washington, D.C. Since
their inception in 1994, the Blue Dogs have been
the leading voice in Congress on the need for
reasonable, commonsense solutions to our
nation's budgetary woes. The Coalition has
focused this year on fixing a broken process that
allows our nation to run deficits exceeding $400
billion a year, much of which is borrowed from
foreign nations like China and Japan.
The Blue Dog's call for bipartisan action on
the budget comes as the Blue Dog 12-Step
Reform Plan has been praised by several
organizations from both sides of the aisle
dedicated to fiscal, responsibility, including The
Heritage Foundation, Centrists.org, Citizens
Against Government Waste, National Taxpayers
Union, and Taxpayers for Common Sense.

Nutrition In A Nutshell
(NAPS)-Eating a handful
of pecans-about 20 halves-
can help you stay in synch
with the most recent dietary
guidelines, the best model yet
on how to eat and live health-
fully. That's because pecans
are heart-healthy, nutrient-
dense and can be a healthier
alternative to meat.





According to the guidelines,
eat most of your fats from
heart-healthy sources like
"fish, nuts and vegetable
oils."
Nuts are rich in heart-
healthy fat, so it doesn't take
many to feel full. In fact,
recent research suggests that
eating nuts has a beneficial
effect on the waistline. In
addition, pecans are rich in
antioxidants.
"Although nuts are energy-
dense, they are also extremely
rich in vitamins and miner-
als and pack a lot of nutrition
into a relatively small pack-
age," says registered dietician
Kimberly Lummus. Just a
handful offers vitamin E, cal-
cium, magnesium, potassium,
zinc, fiber and more antioxi-
dants than any other nut. In
fact, pecans ranked #13 of the
top 20 foods with the highest
antioxidant capacity and #1


among all nuts.
The dietary guidelines are
based on the best science avail-
able today. "Americans should
take these guidelines to heart
and eat a nutritionally bal-


anced and antioxidant-rich
diet with plenty of fruits, veg-
etables, nuts like pecans,
seeds, legumes and whole
grains," says Lummus.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK
Teacher Appreciation Week

May 1-7, 2005
... Many articles have been written about what has made this a
great country we live in one of the greatest in the world. One
thing that always is at the top of the list is our public education
system. It has always been an American ideal that all children
have the opportunity for a free and appropriate education.
iJ Counties all around the world still send their people to be
Superintendent Dennis W. Bennett trained using the educational methods we have in place.
SuperintendentThis week is Teacher Appreciation Week. We know that
our teachers and staff are the key ingredient that makes our public education system the best in the
wbrld. All across our nation we have successful productive people, because of caring, dedicated
teachers and staff. If each and every one of us is honest and look at the success in our lives, we can
credit this success to several teachers and staff who have had a special influence on us.
Education today is certainly in the fast track and we are under pressure to make drastic changes in
curriculum and the way we deliver services in such short periods of time. This is certainly stressful for
staff, teachers, and parents as we strive to meet the changing demands and accountability coming from
the Federal and State government each year. Our teachers and staff continue to rise to the challenge,
because they love young people and want to see them be successful.
SDuring this week of Teacher and Staff Appreciation, we hope that you will take the opportunity to
thank a teacher of staff member, working or retired for taking one of the greatest challenges and this is
to make a difference in a child's life.
