Supreme Court needs a vacation
Actually, I guess the Supreme Court will be getting a vacation
'pretty soon, .taking their customary summer break after doing all
,the damage they could to the Constitution during their last
session.
Two weeks ago, they ruled that county and local governments
could use the concept of eminent domain to take private property,
not only for "public use," as specified in the Constitution, but for
the purpose of expanding the tax base. Revenue trumps property
rights these days, it seems.
An interesting aside here, an entrepreneur in Connecticut has
filed with the city of Weare, New Hampshire, to condemn the
home of Supreme Court Justice David Souter (who supported the
Kelodv. New London decision) so that a hotel could be built on
That site, thus generating more tax revenue than Souter's shack
could contribute.
In the unlikely event this ever comes to pass, the new facility
will be called the "Lost Liberty Hotel," and patrons will dine in
Sthe "Just Dekserts Cafe." Most appropriate.
After trashing the Fifth Amendment, the High (I wonder on
what) Court ruled that a display of the Ten Commandments in
two Kenriicky court houses was unconstitutional, while one
outside a Texas courthouse was OK. As far as I know, no one has
; yet made a particle of sense out of this decision.
Secularists, of course, have no trouble explaining the Kentucky
! ruling, while deploring the one affecting Texas: We're just
' heading down a slippery slope to a theocracy, in which Christian
fundamentalists will rule with an iron hand, treading heavily on
the rights of all those who do not adhere to their bigoted beliefs.
If you'll buy that, I'm selling stock on the 95,000 seat football
Stadium that's going to be built as soon as Old Town gets an NFL
expansion team.
Think about it: Since the foundation of our Republic, public
officials have acknowledged God, and religious symbols such as
: the Ten Commandments have been on display in public venues.
More than 200 years, and somehow it doesn't seem as though we
are inching closer to a repressive theocracy. In fact, we seem to
; have been going in the opposite direction.
In the early 1960s, a militant atheist named Madlyn Murray
SO'Hair was .instrumental in getting God, prayer and the Bible out
: of public schools, thanks to two controversial Supreme Court
rulings. Ibt1973, the High Court discovered a right to abortion
that had ,edtied jurists for the better part of two centuries. Jesus
Christ is-fajt being phased out of the Christmas holiday, liberal
:activists are agitating to get "under God" taken out of the Pledge
" of Allegiance, and gay marriage is coming to a community near
-you.
Meanwhile, "blue laws" restricting Sunday commerce have
diminished in number and dimension, which, while not
necessarily a bad thing, is certainly an indication that the
Republic is not rushing headlong into a theocratic dictatorship.
Instead of splitting hairs over whether or not some acknowl-
edgement of God in a public venue constitutes the establishment
of religion, perhaps our courts should start paying attention to the
other part of the First Amendment's "establishment clause,"
which reads, "...or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Letter to the Editor
Dredging McGriff's Pass & Protecting Our Wetlands
Recent reports prove that dredging in wetlands by the Corps of
Engineers is almost always a huge mistake for the local
community.
New evidence proves that dredging in wetlands provides the
local community less economic growth than the cost of the
dredging. Independent reports show that dredging in wetlands not
only reduces the value of your dollar in the community; it greatly
reduces the ecological value of your community. These reports
also show other examples of extreme mismanagement of wetlands
by the Corps of Engineers.
The Corps of Engineers proposed dredging of McGriff's Pass
in the wetlands of the Suwannee River Estuary should be
reconsidered in the light recent reports.
Not only do the Corps of Engineers wetlands dredging projects
cost the local economy more money than they are worth. Dredging
in a wetlands environment is proven to interrupt the food chain for
over 85% of all land-based and aquatic life. The food chain
interruption extends for miles and miles from the dredging area
and the food chain at best makes pitiful recovery in your lifetime.
Another of the lasting effects produced by the Corps of
Engineers mismanagement of wetlands includes the disappearance
of 135.25 square miles of Florida's wetlands. These areas still exist
on deeds and maps but they cannot be found on the ground. These
84,000 acres, deeded in the State of Florida, are under the Corps of
Engineers control and are worth 100s of millions, maybe billions
of dollars. The attitude of the Corps of Engineers at this loss was
reported by the St. Petersburg Times as just a shrug. After all
losing 135.25 square miles of wetlands is very small potatoes for
the bureaucracy that destroyed the Everglades.
There are efforts in the US Senate to bring the Corps of
Engineers up to environmental/economic standards of the 21st
Century. A Bill was recently introduced in the US Senate
proposes new requirements such as an ironclad 1.5 dollar return to
the local community for every dollar they spend on any dredging
project. Dredging McGriffs Pass will return less than 45 cents for
every dollar spent.
The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail and the Big Bend
Saltwater Paddling Trail intersect at McGriffs Pass in the
Suwannee River Estuary. This estuary is the largest undisturbed,
undeveloped estuary in North America. The dredging of McGriffs
Pass in the Suwannee River Estuary will only benefit a handful of
people (developers) for a short term. In the long tern the
dredging will only devalue local purchasing power and greatly
diminish the eco-tourism value of the Suwannee River Estuary.
Stan Meeks Friends of the Great Suwannee

protecting our environment) contact these Representatives:

Continued from page 1

Lambert has one daughter, Brandi Walker who has given her'
two wonderful grandsons, John and Jacob Britt of Old Town. Hero
son, J.D. Walker, who passed away in August of 1996, gave he4
another wonderful grandson, Dwight Walker and a beautiful
granddaughter, Chelsea Walker, who live in Steinhatchee.
As you can see Dixie ties are strong with Lambert, in fact shell
and husband, Paul of 5+ years, live two miles from where she waste
born. They enjoy fishing and hunting and are avid Gator fans. ,
Another thing the couple has in common is their work. Paul is;
a Clerk at the Old Town Post Office, working with Suwannee's"
former Post Master, Steve Beach. Beach moved to the Old Towrn
Postmaster position earlier this year and from all accounts doing ani
excellent job.
With 25-years experience, Lambert was the more likely?
candidate for the position left vacant by Beach. Her daily duties
will include delivering mail to approximately 400 box customers
retail counter services such as selling money orders, stamps
packages, etc. and of course an endless trail of paper work that the
government is famous for.
With the help of her two PMR's, Pam Valentine and Sharon.
,Barron, Lambert stated that they would continue to provide quality;
service that their customers are use to and hope to bring some new.
ideas and services to the area in the future.
When asked how she was fairing, she grinned and stated, "I am;
enjoying the smiling faces that just stop in to say hi and introduce
themselves," state Lambert. She also noted how nice it was not to,
have to wear a uniform, pointing to her "beach scene" shirt.
Congratulations and Wishes of continued success.

Commissioner Hoyt J. "Buddy" Lamb


Elected/Appointed to Key
On Wednesday, June 1st, 2005, the Small
-County Coalition held its annual business
ineeting in Tallahassee. During this meeting,
Commissioner Buddy Lamb was voted and
elected by fellow Commissioners from around
the state to serve on the Executive Committee.
Commissioner Lamb will serve as
Representative for the Central Florida Region,
which includes Citrus, Dixie, Gilchrist,
Hernando, Lafayette, Levy, Sumter, and
Suwannee Counties. "The Small County
Coalition is a group made up of 36 counties
across the state that are similar to Dixie County
and have special needs due to
their size," Lamb said. The
Small County Coalition has
been in existence for years and
was formed to help address the
needs of small counties and 'to
lobby for Legislation to support
these needs.
During the week of June 21-
24, 2005, the Florida
. Association of Counties (FAC)
, held their annual Conference in -
Tampa, FL. It was during their .
annual business meeting
Commissioner Lamb was
installed as Vice-Chairman for
FAC's Rural Caucus
Committee. Lamb said two "BuddC
.weeks prior to the conference
She received a phone call from FAC President
Elect Welton Cadwell asking if he would accept
this appointment.
For nearly a century, the Florida Association
of Counties has represented the interests of
Florida's counties. Founded in 1929 as the State
Association of County Commissioners (SACC)
the association has grown in both size and
visibility. Today, FAC serves the states counties
through its legislative, professional
development, and public education programs. In


Positions
addition to FAC Legislative successes, it serves
the professional development needs of its
members through quality education programs
offered through the Florida Counties
Foundation.
One of the Foundations greatest points of
pride is its Commissioner Certification Program,
which requires completion of 36 hours of
training. Commissioner Lamb stated he is a
graduate of this program. The program is
designed to enhance the leadership skills of
county officials, facilitate innovative thinking,
and ultimately enable Florida communities to
prosper.
":. FAC has six committees for
S' main issues. One of the six, the
Rural Caucus Committee is
designed for issues affecting
counties under 75,000 in
population. Among Florida's
67 counties, nearly half are
S '' small counties with population
/ -I under 75,000. As such, they
face unique challenges. This is
,i the Committee Commissioner
Lamb will vice-chair. Through
the FAC, small counties now
have a voice at the state and
national level. By participating
on FAC committees and task
ner Hoyt J. forces, small county
v"Lamb commissioners are able to
voice their issues and ensure they are addressed.
After returning home from the conference,
Commissioner Lamb received yet another call
from the FAC President, asking him to accept a
one year appointment as an At-Large member of
the Board of Directors for FAC. This
appointment includes Lamb as a voting member
of FAC's Board of Directors.
If you would like to know more about the
FAC, you may log on to www.fl-counties.com..


"CITY"
Continued from page 1


While there will be some detouring, the Council
promises that it will be well worth the
inconvenience when complete.
., Bathrooms, additional equipment,
sidewalk/skate path and picnic sheds are being
,added to the City Park. At 95% complete, it
should be ready for use by August. Wow! What
Sa- beautiful park, one that every resident can be
proud of.
The City recently found out they will be
receiving a $200,000.00 FRDAP Grant. (Florida
Recreational Development Assistant Program).
Barring any last minute VETO by the Governor,
-the> money should be received sometime in
October.
This "landfall" will be used for the North
West Cross City Park, to be named at a later
date. Covering almost a city block, the park will
include bathrooms, walking path, basketball
Sciurt, fencing and lighting and picnic area. It is
loped that the project can be started in the latter
'part of October of this year.
Both of the park projects have been labors of
love. It is with great pride that the Council
!worked toward giving its citizens a place to take
their families, a place'where children can play, a
:, .place where the community can gather for
Special events and fellowship.
Funding is hard to come by and these
projects are expensive. Let's take pride in these
.; arks and help keep them clean and cared for.
Cassidy also noted that bids for the Spray
SiField Project out at the old Barber Pasture has
':been awarded. The 52-acre site will be used for
treated wastewater irrigation. There will be no
melll as it is treated water.







% ,. ,".-A^


The spray field is part of a 400-acre tract the
City is leasing from the Suwannee River Water
Management District. Located behind the
Florida Motel, the natural setting is home to
wildlife and includes woodlands and wetlands.
Cassidy stated that the City and SRWMD might
be working together on some very special plans
that will include the use of the property in
conjunction with the Greenway. However,
Cassidy stated that we would just have to wait to
find out just what those plans might be.
The spray field is the 3rd Phase of ongoing
upgrades with the City's wastewater treatment
facility. Funding for the, project comes from
CDBG (Community Development Block Grant)
grants and Department of Corrections (DOC).
The DOC funding is due to the fact that the
Cross City Correctional Institute uses the City's
water andtreatment facilities. The DOC also
helps furnish manpower through their Work-
Release Program.
Cassidy stated that this year the City has
been vigilant in addressing the issue of cleanup
in the City's "stressed" areas. Letters have been
sent to residents and businesses asking them to
clean up their property. He added that it isn't
just a matter of aesthetics, but providing a safe
and healthy environment for everyone.
The Council has been pleased with the
positive response so far and would like to thank
those who have already begun the process of
getting their properties presentable. However,
Cassidy stated, "We need more to step up to the
plate." "Together we can make Cross City a
place for everyone to be proud of."
The next City Council Meeting will be held
on Monday, July 11th beginning at 7:00 PM.


"The Virginia Ma3
The following story was told to Evonne
Valentine Cline by Alton Turner of
Steinhatchee. It is a bit of Dixie County History
that will be saved for future Dixie Countians...
The Virginia May was a 50-foot charter
boat. Her homeport was Steinhatchee. Her home
in the Steinhatchee River was east of the old
bridge. She was the nicest charter boat in the
area. It took a high tide with plenty of water to
get her out of the river... she was lost at sea
along with her Captain, Frank DeVane in
October of 1958.
The original owner of the Virginia May was
Joe Larr. He sold the boat to Frank DeVane and


breather and killed the motor. The boat began
to turn sideways and the anchor was thrown
overboard, but the rope popped like a gun and
broke. -
Water continued to flood the bdat; waves
coming over the bow and stem. They had-to
abandon ship. Climbing into the 4 x 6"wood aiid
fiberglass lifeboat, the two men tied themselves
to the tiny raft. When they cut the ropes
connecting them to the Virginia Mae a large
wave hit the boat and men were thrown end over
end, tumbling in the raft. They could hear a
crumbling sound, like an eggshell cracking, as
the Virginia Mae sunk into the Gulf waters.

"COURTHOUSE"
Continued from page 1


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
It's no secret that our county is growing and
with growth, the need for services grows. The
* County's Courthouse houses many of the offices
.Who provide those services;' Property Appraiser,:
Tax Collector, Supervisor of Elections,
Commissioners Office, 'Finance, Sheriffs
Office, Judge's Office, Veteran's Office and
Clerk of Court, not to mention the courtroom
itself.
Of those offices, the Clerk of the Court's
years of accumulated documentation and
addition of staff has the small office bulging at
the seams. With the -forecast of continued
growth, it became apparent that the courthouse
was going to need additional space.
For several years, County Manger, Arthur
Bellot has been working with our
Commissioners to find the means in which to
secure funding for such a project and even hired
an architect, Paul Stressing Associates, Inc. out
of Gainesville to begin design and cost analysis
for the expansion of the courthouse.
Planning ahead, Commissioners also began a
Renovation Fund or "nest egg" if you will,


several years ago and managed to. save
$175,000.00. This. past Legislative Session, the
county received the good news they will be able
to add to fund an additional S250.000.0.0 thanks
to a grant secured through the Small. County
Courthouse Program, funded by the Judicial
System.
Stressing has submitted several plans and it
looks like the Commission has tentively decided
on one that will utilize space- from the
courtroom entrance and portico... The
renovation/expansion would be constructed
from the backside of the courthouse, facing the
City Park. The design will give the Clerk's
Office an additional 2,000 sq. ft.; which will
house seven offices and a records vault. Clerk
staff will also 'use the office and yault: that is
currently being utilized.
Bellot noted that the project is still in the
preliminary stages. The Commission hopes to
begin the project in October and complete it by
June 2006. An estimated $380,000.00 will be
needed for the renovations, well within their
"nest eggs" budget.

Thomas & Megan Elizabeth Browne
It is with much love and happiness that our families announce
the marriage of Megan Elizabeth Kidd and Thomas Browne of
Missoula, Montana.
The wedding ceremony was performed by the bride's Mother,
-June Kidd.
The wedding and reception were at the home of the groom's
parents, Tom and Kathy Browne in Old Town on Saturday, June
4th, 2005.
We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness.
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
-Rev 21:3
Continued from last week I the day of the Lord, say they had
no where to go and that is when they began to accuse Moses for *
leading them to such a terrible end. Then Moses said "Fear ye not
stand still, and see the Salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to
you to day; for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall
see them again no more for ever" Ex 14:13. I the Day of the Lord,
say here is proof again the children of Israel were never to go back
to that land of bondage. Stand still sometimes God allows us to get
in a tight place like they were so that we will stand still and see the
salvation of the Lord. Our trouble is we try to do it ourselves and
we end up making a big mess. Paul in Ephesians 6:13, say," having
done all to stand. That is hard for our flesh to take. We want to be
up doing something about our troubles. God had brought Israel to a
place where they could not help themselves and they had to look to
;,Him. They were about to allow themselves to be swallowed up by
defeat. Then Moses the man that they rejected forty years ago gave
them the answer. Stop struggling! Stop fretting! Stand still! See the
salvation of the Lord! Let the Lord fight this battle. I the Day of
the Lord, say the battle is His and not yours. Having done all
STAND. With a might hand he Lord made a new divine road
through the Red Sea. Then were their hearts exceedingly glad and
they sang and danced when they reached the other side. A mighty
deliverance had come their way and the very road which had
delivered-themi'destroyed their enemies, the Ep\piins. Then for,.
the next three days they journeyed in the wilderness in search of
water. And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the
water of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was
called Marah (bitterness)" Ex 15:3. Water is precious especially in
a desert land. It is extremely necessary for all life. It was at this
time that they began to murmur and complain because of the bitter
waters. Do you know why the waters were bitter? They were
seeing their own reflections of what they were inwardly. The
waters became sweet when Moses cast a tree into them. I the Day
of the Lord, say the tree of life will make our waters sweet. Some
- folks never taste of the Tree of life in this life because they have
-been told it is for them on the other side of the cemetery. But the
Tree of life is within reach of each of us if we will but look within
the midst of our gardens. Continued next week

MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
.......Isn't that what we all hope to do?
Well there are people in the tri-county who make a difference
everyday. They are the 1300 plus grandparent households raising
grandchildren at a time when raising children was not what they
had envisioned for their golden years. Many are already living on
fixed incomes and wonder how they will make their dollars stretch
for food and medicine. Feeding, clothing, and educating
grandchildren was not a part of their expectation. Neither was the
store of energy, patience and wisdom that would be needed.
Join us as a community sponsor and make a difference for
these grandparents as we provide a day of education, support and
appreciation for them. As a community sponsor the media will
play a very important part in the success of this project. Your help
is needed to promote this event with advertising, feature articles or
other available means of assistance. We are depending upon \ou to
help us get the word out to those grandparents .%ho need support"
from their communities.
The event will be held on August 13 at Hardeetown Baptist
Church in Chiefland from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The day will include a discussion by a panel of community
service providers, guest speakers, and vendors. There will be
fabulous door prizes. Lunch and all activities are free, but
registration is required to ensure enough food and materials for
everyone attending.
A separate program of fun activities, school supplies, and
lunch will be provided for the grandchildren by various
community sponsors.
Sponsors to date include Walmart, Foodland, Health
Department, Family Caregiver Support Program, Department of
Children and Families, University of Florida Extension Services,
Meridian Behavioral Healthcare, Hardeetown Baptist Church,
Suwannee River Area Health Education, Florida's 21st Century
Project, local Police and EMT's. We hope you will want to be a


part of this wonderful event also.

Abundant Life & Living
I am sure we all have heard the adage "misery loves
Company" To stay contented, happy and live a productive life;
we cannot let our bodies be a
.' garbage can and receive every
K body's trash.
When people are unhappy,
,..'. depressed and miserable, They
o have a need for someone to share
their feelings. If we don't have a
built in garbage disposal, which is
the Holy Spirit, we can waste our
whole lives loaded down with the
cares of others. It is a good thing to
have concern for others, we must
Lucille Stockton care and share empathy and love.
We must be helpful in any way that
we can. God expect us to do that. But after we hear them out,
share and pray with them:
We must turn on the garbage disposal and clean out all the
.:waste and rubbish that has accumulated inside of us while
sharing, that we want become depressed miserable beings. We
must pray for ourselves and get refueled to be able to live
abundant lives. Also to stay free, happy, healthy and positive.
Remember if we don't stay fueled we will become burnt out and


want have anything to share with others.

The Word

Made Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
Continued from last week. I
the son of man, say I have often
talked with angels on this subject,
and they have invariably declared
that in heaven they are unable to a
divide the Divine into three,
because they know and perceive
that the Divine is One and this
One is in the Lord. They also
declare that those of the church
who came from this world having
an idea of three Divine being
cannot be admitted into heaven,
since their thought wanders from
one Divine being to another; and it
is not allowable there to think
three and say one, because in
heaven everyone speaks from his
thought, speech there being the
immediate product of the thought,
or the thought speaking. I the son
of man. Say consequently, those in
this world who have divided the
Divine into three and adopted a
different idea of each and have not
.ntide that idea one and centered it
i:ih the Lord, cannot be received
into heaven because in heaven
there is a sharing of all thoughts,
iand therefore is anyone came
thinking three while saying one he
-would be at once found out and
rejected. But let it be known that
'all those who have not separated
,what is true from what is good, or
faith from love, accept in the other
life, when they have been taught,
the heavenly idea of the Lord, that
He is the God of the universe. It is
otherwise with those who have
'separated faith from life, that is,
'who have not lived according to
hthe precepts of a true faith. I the
.son of man, say those within the
,church who have denied the Lord
:and have acknowledged the Father
only and have confirmed
=themselves in that belief, are not
fih heaven; and as they are unable
to receive any influx from heaven,
'where the Lord alone is
,worshiped, they gradually lose the
.ability to think what is true about
'iny subject whatever; and finally
'they either lose the power to speak
,dr they talk stupidly, and ramble
;about with their arms dangling and
swinging, as is weak in the joints.
I the son of man, say again those
who, ; like the Socinians, have
'denied the Divinity of the Lord
*nd have acknowledged His
'Humanity only, are likewise not in
heaven. I the son of man, say such
are brought forward a little toward
'the right and are let down into the
d eep, and are thus wholly
separated from the rest that come
from the Christian world. Love
you, continued next week

Faith Baptist Church News
We praise God for a beautiful day today at Faith. Bro. Jackie
and Sis. Linda were away on a short vacation to Tennessee and the'
morning service was done by Bro. Ricky Lyons of Mayo. The
evening service was led by Bro. Buddy Britton of Faith. Both of
them did a beautiful job of delivering God's word to us. The
special music in both services was great. Buddy and Dot Britton
sang for us in the morning service and Kathy Dey's grandson, C.J.
sang in the evening service. How they blessed our hearts.
We had visitors again this morning and as always, they are
such a blessing to us. We pray that they were made to feel
welcome and loved and we invite you back anytime to worship
with us. If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to
share ours and if you're just passing through, we invite you visit us
again real soon. Lots of our folks are away on vacation, and some
are out sick, but we continue to have a good number and we're
thankful for that. Our parsonage is getting underway. The footers
were footer's last week and God is just blessing in such a mighty
way.
Our Sunday School attendance was up this morning and if
you've been missing Sunday School, you are missing a blessing.
Come out next week and see what you're missing. Also remember
that we have Prayer Meeting on Wednesday night and would love
to see you there.
We wish you a happy and safe week. We love you and will be
looking for you when we all gather again Wednesday night at
7:00and again next Sunday for Sunday school at 9:45 and Church
at 11:00, and again at 6:00 PM Sunday night. Invite a friend. God
will bless you for it.

Buddy Martin's
Weekly Sports Commentary
The NBA Crapshoot
Sometimes the information college
underclassmen get from so-called experts
about going pro can be misrepresented,
misinterpreted or just plain wrong.
One or more of
those things
happened for
Florida's Matt
Walsh and Anthony
Roberson, both of
-, .' whom came out
early for the NBA
a draft and were
snubbed.
Now they will
have to do as other
teammates have
done in the past: Go to Europe and play their
way back to the NBA. It worked well for
Udonis Haslem, who finally gets the big
contract with the Miami Heat. And it may yet
work for Matt Bonner, who was finally picked
up by the Toronto Raptors last season.
Walsh was hoping to be drafted by the Heat
and may yet get a free agent shot with them.
According to his agent, Jason Levien, he has
received offers to play summer league ball
from six teams.
The New Jersey Nets and Atlanta Hawks
are reportedly interested in Roberson, whose
financial needs for his family remain of great
concern.
There's something wrong with this picture.
* I think even if they declare, but don't take
money from an agent, they should be able to
return to their college to complete'their careers.
Somebody goofed here.
"The draft is a crapshoot," said Levien.
Now there's a brilliant revelation.
Quick Jump Starts
1. You go, Lance.
2. Hey, Mike Tice, got two on the 50-
yard line for Super Bowl XL in Detroit?
3. What does it say about the state of
'Alabama football when basketball coach Mark
Gottfriednow makes more money than David,
Shula?
4. So Terrell Owens wants to play
summer league basketball for the Sacramento
Kings summer league ... how long before he'll
want to renegotiate?
5. Hopefully somebody chauffeured Dale
Earnhardt Jr. home from Daytona International
'Speedway Saturday night, given the bad job of
driving he's done lately.
This Just In: Coach who?
If you're wondering how quickly fame
evaporates, consider the ranking of the Sports
Illustrated's Website Top 10 College Coaches
heading into 2005. Urban Meyer is at No. 6,
however, Steve Spurrier, Bobby Bowden,
Larry Coker and Joe Paterno weren't even


honorable mention. Pete Carroll was No. 1,
Bob Stoops No. 2.
Short Stuff
Further proof that things are falling apart
for the Tampa Bay Bucs:A 28-foot panel made
of soffit broke free and fell 30 feet to the club-
level at Raymond James Stadium last month ...
More Buc Talk: Good idea by Jon Gruden to
fax an offer sheet to New England's deposed
defensive back Ty Law, although he has Ronde
Barber and Brian Kelly returning at comer ...
If you're wondering about the odds of Tampa
Bay rookie wide receiver Larry Brackins
jumping from junior college to the NFL, only

Kenny Rogers faces the music
While taking swift action in the case of
Kenny Rogers" assault on two TV workers,
Bud Selig missed a chance to make, a stronger
statement that baseball won't tolerate violence,
as NBA Commissioner David Stem did in the
Ron Artest case.
The fine of $50,000 is nothing, considering
Rogers makes almost $20,000 a day, and
although he is suspended for 20 games, that's
only four starts missed for the Rangers.
Even worse, Rogers wasn't required to take
counseling for anger management, which was
the most important consequence of all.
Once again Bud, you blew it.

Margaret pretty much knew what she was reading. She knew
she had pieces of a masterpiece in her hands, but that didn't seem
to help much. The fellow who wrote this story was not much more
than an itinerant, running around the continent begging a few
francs and meals from well-to-do liberal friends.
But this manuscript was sent to Margaret by her friend Ezra.
Lately Ezra had been something of a life preserver in the sea of
disdain. Margaret was a publisher of a small magazine in New
York, called the Little Review, at a time when it just wasn't very
popular for women to do much of anything, much less be a radical
outspoken publisher. So of course, that's just what she was.
The Little Review had been around for a couple of years and,
for the most part, Margaret was starving to death trying to keep it
going. In her own words, "Having enough for a cup of morning
coffee was never a sure thing." Now I'd say that was cutting it
pretty close, wouldn't you? But her friend and sometime
contributor, Ezra Pound, had been knocking around Europe and
had met a fellow who was nearly finished with a book. Pound
thought the book brilliant, so he sent it to Margaret. She loved it
and wanted to publish parts of it in her magazine.
The author agreed, so there it was: a good read and hopefully
something that would increase attention and readership in the Little
Review. She couldn't have been more wrong. First of all, she
couldn't even get her regular printer to print the material. All the
other printers she knew turned down the job, too. It was only
because she found a Serbian immigrant printer, whose command of
the English language was so limited that he didn't understand most
of it, that she got it printed at all.
o Once it was printed, all dickens broke loose. She increased
attention all right! From the famed New York Times to the chief
prosecutor of New York, Margaret got attention. The story was
proclaimed obscene and the city's attorney brought her up on
charges for printing such tripe. She defended herself as best she
could, with the help of a lawyer, who also thought the book was
disgusting by the way. But she lost. She was ordered to cease and
desist and pay a large fine, which of course she didn't have. If it
wasn't for her friend Ezra who gave the articles to a French
5 bookseller, we may never have heard of the book at all. And
wouldn't that have been a shame.
You see, It's a Little Known Fact that one American woman
put it all on the line for an author whom she never met who'd
never sold a thing, because she believed it was great literature. It
ruined Margaret. But without her, you'd probably have never
heard of James Joyce, or his creation of "Ulysses."

Ronald McDonald stopped by the Dixie County Public Library for Story
Time. Pictured here with his enthusiastic audience, Ronald puts the
"fun" in reading.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Public Library was buzzing with excitement
several weeks ago when the one, the only, Ronald McDonald
stopped in for Story Time. The 30-minute show proved to be
entertaining to young and old alike as Ronald performed magic and
read stories like only Ronald can.
After reading time, each child received a signed photo of
Ronald and got to talk to the famous clown.
Of course Ronald relayed to the children and their parents the
importance of reading. It has been proven time and time again that
those who read often are more likely to read at a higher grade
level.
The special reading event was sponsored by our local
McDonald's. To further encourage reading Ronald has issued a
challenge, "Ronald's Challenge". The Dixie County Public
Library will issue special cards to youngsters. Each time they
complete reading a book, the librarian will stamp it. When the
card has been stamped five times, and signed by a parent, they can
take the card to any McDonald's for a FREE hamburger or
Cheeseburger!
Remember..."Summer Reading Equals Better Reading Scores
& Free Hamburger or Cheeseburger"
The Dixie County Public Library is dedicated to our young
people and has held a summer program for many years now. Head
Librarian, Cindy Bellot and her staff are always excited about the
summer; because they know that the library will be filled with
bright young minds, ready to learn, ready to read.
Stop by any day, come and see what your public library has for,
you. You never know what you will discover!

M9 Rules for safety
Before I go anywhere, I always
check first with my parents or the
person in charge. I tell them where
I am going, how I will get there, who
will be going with me, and when I'll
be back.
2 I check first for permission from
my parents before getting into a car
or leaving with anyone even
someone I know. I check first be-
fore changing plans or accepting
money, gifts, or drugs without my
parents' knowledge.
3 It is safer for me to be with other
people when going places or play-
ing outside. I always use the
"buddy system."
A I say NO if someone tries to touch
4 me in ways that make me feel fright-
ened, uncomfortable, or confused.
Then I go and tell a grown-up I trust
what happened.
I know it is not my fault if some-
one touches me in a way that is not
O.K. I don't have to keep secrets
about those touches.
I trust my feelings and talk to
v grown-ups about problems that are
too big for me to handle on my own.
A lot of people care about me and
will listen and believe me. I am not
alone.
7It is never too late to ask for .help.
7 I can keep asking until I get the help
I, need. .
am na special person, and I deserve '
to feel safe. My rules are:
CHECK FIRST.
USE THE "BUDDY SYSTEM."
SAY NO, THEN GO AND TELL.
LISTEN TO MY FEELINGS, AND
TALK WITH GROWN-UPS I
TRUST ABOUT MY PROBLEMS
AND CONCERNS.

Springhouse Quilter's Guild News


The beginner sewing camp 4-H members at the entrance of
the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop. *
The 2004 beginner 4-H sewing camp help during the week of
June 20-24 at the Springhouse Quilter's Guild quilt house is now
history. What a wonderful time for the young ladies attending and
especially for the 12 Springhouse ladies that worked with Ms.
Elaine Faison, Coordinator of Gilchrist County 4-H programs, in
conducting this camp.
On Monday morning June 20, 15 eager young ladies arrived
to begin a 4-day sewing/quilting camp. The 15 ladies reported in
.each day for the camp and not a one was lost for lack of
attendance. The classes began at 8:30 each day. The 4-H members
arrived each day all ready and eager to accomplish something
important for the day.
We began on Monday morning teaching the ladies how to use
a sewing machine. After a time of explaining the sewing machine,
it was not long before these ladies were ready to make their
Machine go to work. It is really easy teaching the girls how to use
a sewing machine. They were eager and ready, were not afraid of
their machine and before the end of the first day had pieced
together 4, 44 inch strips, cut out 4- of the contrasting, crosswise,
4 blocks strips and made a cover for a pillow.
On Tuesday .morning, the major project for the day was
making a backpack, lined with plastic to allow them to use these
to carry their wet swimming clothes and towels. The weather and
the river did not participate for the entire week which prevented
them from going swimming. Their backpacks were completed and
are ready for their first swimming outing.
On Wednesday, the young ladies made yo-yo flowers, a
beaded scarf, gift bags and greeting cards. The cards and bags
were made and decorated using fabric pictures. On the last day of
; the camp, the young ladies used the balance of their ready-made
fabric they made on Monday to make a beautiful tote bag.
One of the high points of the week was a visit to the Suwannee
Valley Quilt shop. The ladies were treated to brownies and
lemonade by the Cypress Swamp Cafe after which Lynn, from
Lynn's County Cross Stitch, provided a kit and instructions for
cross-stitching.
The next 4-H session will be July 18-22 for advanced 4-H
members. Ms. Faison takes care of enrollment through the 4-H
program. For questions on the 4-H program, prospective members
should contact Ms. Elaine at the Gilchrist County Extension
Office.

Quilters may contact Kay Fales, 490 7909 or Lois Scott 463

Post 91 News
For those 20 Post 91 Family
members that attended the first
annual Post 91 Fourth of July
Family Picnic, thanks for coming
out to have a good time. And for
those that didn't make it, you
missed some good food and fun
games. The Post looked great in
the red, white and blue patriotic
decorations. The food was
plentiful and delicious and the
games set up by Geneva were fun,
testing our knowledge and
memory. The chance to visit with
friends and our Legion Family is
always a pleasure.
One item of note to
Legionnaires, especially those on
the Executive Committee, Post
Commander Shelby McKinney
has set the Executive Committee
meeting for the month of July to
be on Thursday, July 14th, at the
Post Home on US-129 at 7:00 PM.
If you have business for the
Committee to discuss, it should be
placed on the agenda, so the Post
Commander (352-463-1459) and
the Post Adjutant (386-454-8143)
must be notified to place that item
on the agenda for the evening's
meeting.
The American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 91 is having a Yard
Sale on Saturday, July 16th at the
intersection of State Road 26 and
US Highway 129 (at the traffic
light in Trenton) beginning at
07:00 AM until 10:00 or
11:00AM. If you have items to
donate, contact Auxiliary
President Anne McKinney at 352-
463-1459 for more information.
Post 91 will meet in regular
session on Saturday, July 16th for
the month of July at 10:00 AM.
The Donation Pancake Breakfast
will begin at 08:00 AM and will
serve until 09:45. Come for
breakfast and stay for the meeting,
and you can stop at the Yard Sale
on the way.
Post 91 is still in need of
storage space, such as a shed or
storage building on our site. The
Post is looking for donations for
either a shed or good materials to
build one. If anyone knows of
someone that may be interested,
please call Post Adjutant Dean
Williams at 386-454-8143.
If anyone knows of a
Legionnaire or a Legion
widow/widower that is ill or in the
hospital, please let us know. Post
91 has a phone answering machine
and the number is 352-463-1501.
Remember our Armed Forces
all over the world in your thoughts
and prayers every day and here at
home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and the families of those called up
for active duty, helping out
however and whenever we can.
For God and Country, Wayne
Gravely, for Jamerson-Sheffield
Post 91 of the Florida American
Legion

Sightings

This week we bring you the art of
veggies. James Cox brought by
several interesting items of produce
by the Advocate last week.
The first is this large, odd shaped
*crookneck squash. Or should we say
*crooknecks? You can honestly say
that these/this squash is an abstract
veggie.
Can you guess what this pair of birds was made from? It is a
vegetable is normally green and is great in soup or dredged in corn
meal and fried. That's right okra! The stems were left on and
split to make up the legs and tail feathers.
Mr. Cox got both the squash and okra from his friends down at
the Cypress Inn Restaurant. Thanks for sharing guys!

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of

things... [but] there are times when we stop. We sit
still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its mem-
ory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world
begin to whisper.

Jean McLel4n designed the quilt
that will *b6d going to Nev Port

We reallN enjoyed ha\ ing
five ladies come visiting. Three
from Willision and one from
Alabama and one from
Chattanooga, Tenn. To visit and
this is always a great place to
bring your company. They stayed
and 'had lunch with us and we
know they will all be back. We
meet so many wonderful people
and make friends forever. We
area often open everyday and its
so, peaceful and quite and
everyone loves to sit on the
porch, enjoy the plants and
flowers, listen to the many birds
and, remember back when times
were different.
Jeffery and seven boys plus a
man who is in training was out
Wed. to mow and do the many
things that make the yard and
building both so great. Thank
you again Lancaster.
We pray for all those who
will be training this week-end for
the many who are sick, those
who need help and thanking our
Lord for all the blessing he
bestows on us every day.
Lunch was again great with
great fresh vegetables and the
dessert was yummy.
