By Terri Langford Staff Writer
They knew the storm was
coming; they knew that it was
going to be bad, so they
packed what little they could
carry and headed to safety; to a
daughter, a mother and friend.
This is the story of' five
families who evacuated to
Dixie County in order to
escape the wrath of Hurricane
Katrina and who all now
anxiously await for news back
home.,
Jerry, Irene and Beau
Walker made their decision to
leave their Boothville,
Louisiana home two days
before Katrina hit. They
wanted to get out before it was
too late. Boothville is much
like our Florida Keys whereas
there is only one road in and
out. Two hundred yards from
their home is the Mississippi
River and behind them the bay.
"We knew the traffic from
New Orleans would get bad
and we didn't want to get
stuck," stated Irene Walker.
Staying with friends in
Mississippi on Saturday
evening, they made it to an
anxious daughter, Donna
Hurley, in Old Town at around
8:00 PM on Sunday:- They
would spend the next few days
watching the television, trying
to get a glimpse of what they
left behind.
Jerry Walker and son Beau
are fishermen and the fate of
their business is not. yet
known. "We had to leave
behind one of our boats aiid'all
of our fishing gear; thousands
of dollars worth," stated Jeiy.
"We don't know what is left,;if
anything." "We have
insurance, but it won't:- even
begin to pay for what we. have
invested," Jerry noted..: ;"It's
not that we just lost our home,
we lost our livelihood too,".
The Walkers, moved to
Louisiana in 1995.- from
Pinellas County, Florida after
the net ban put them out of :'

Collection Site Set Up For Hurricane Katrina Relief


Above is an artist rendition of the plans for the proposed Chiefland Hospital


By Terri Langford Staff WritW-
It would ha\e opened this December (2005)
if all had gone as planned, but instead the State
Bureau of Health Facility Regulation agency
turned down an application for a 32-bed hospital
to be located in Chiefland and serve thousands
in the Tri-County area. However, there is a
small group from the original project'that has
reunited and is, once again, on a mission to
bring the project back on the table, with a more
favorable outcome.
Frank G. Schupp, who was Vice-President
of Development for Ameris Health Systems,
LLC has since left the Tennessee based
company and recently began to rally those who
believe like himself that the project should not


be left as a dead issue, but to rekindle it and
make it work. "We were close last time," stated
Schupp. "We already have the support, the
architect and Certificate of Need (CON), now
we need to find the financial backing," stated
Schupp.
Many at the meeting .were emotionally
attached to the project having worked on plans
for the Tri-County Hospital that was turned
down by the State and abandoned by Ameris.
Even so, they all agreed that the hospital is
needed now more than ever. "It has become a
crises," stated Dixie's County Manger Arthur
Bellot. "In Dixie County we are faced with
tremendous growth, condos are

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Local businessman, Robert Brim of A-Brim Transportation in Old Town has set up a semi-trailer
for the sole purpose of collecting items needed by victims of Hurricane Katrina. He and a host of
volunteers started on the project over the holiday weekend and hope to fill the huge cargo box up
and head west by weeks end.

The hurricane blame game
I found out wh.\ the Gulf coast was subjected to Katrina, a
devastating category 4 hurricane. It was caused b. global
warming, which is the fault of President Buish and Mississippi
Governor Haley Barbour because they opposed the Kyoto treaty-
or at least that's what Robert Kennedy Jr. would have us believe.
Of course, if you're a Kennedy, even the most gluteally-
bisected opinion is considered newsworthy by the mainstream
press, especially if your harangue sounds like Uncle Teddy.
I Syndicated columnist Molly lins takes a different approach.
She tells us that "'many enmironmentalists" blame "a century's
interference with the natural flow of the Mississippi" as the culprit
because the delta and other wetlands have suffered.
I Really? Wetlands and the Mississippi delta would have
protected New Orleans from a category 4 hurricane? We learn
something every day, don't we? Anyway, according to Molly's
detached reasoning, George Bush is nonetheless to blame due to
his administration's environmentally unfriendly policy on
wetlands.
Needless to say, the Most Reverend Jesse Jackson has weighed
in on the matter. Bush should have responded more quickly.
There is not enough being done by the federal government., etc.
Jackson sounds, a lot like New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin,
who spent more time bellyaching about what somebody else
i should have done than he did about doing something at his level
4 of government, which might have included taking out the looters
and hoodlums who fired guns at rescue workers.
We find here a distinct difference from the way then-New
York City Mayor Rudi Guilliani took charge of matters after 9/11.
I Granted, that disaster was at least isolated to one region of the
city, and different in many other ways as well. However, the point
t is that Gluilliani personally and immediately took charge of the
situation, rather than looking for someone in Washington to
blame. ,w
Then we have the icons of Hollywood's looney left politicizing
fund-raisers with their inane rhetoric, not to mention some
Mullah in Kuwait saying Katrina was Allah's judgment on our
wicked nation....
We can find plenty of blame to go around. The levees that
were supposed to protect the city failed to withstand a storm surge,
with disastrous flooding being the result. mainly because most of
New Orleans is below sea level. New Orleans has been hit by
hurricanes before, and the city lies in a zone that hurricanes seem
to target on a regular basis. It's surprising that the "Big Easy"
hasn't experienced one of this magnitude long before now.
A week ago, House Speaker Dennis Hasten (R-Ill) sounded
like he thought we ought to bulldoze what's left of New Orleans,
but he backed away from that analysis in the face of heavy
criticism and President Bush's statement that the city would be
rebuilt.
Lei's hope that New Orleans can recover, but let us also bear
in mind that, as bad as this hurricane was. it actually could have
been worse. Katrina was a category 5 storm headed directly for
New Orleans, but shortly before it made landfall it shifted
direction slightly and the winds backed down to category 4
status-which is certainly no evening breeze-but when we
consider how much damage occurred, the thought of an even more
severe impact is really scary.
At this point, New Orleans and the other coastal areas that
were hard-hit by Katrina need help. Dixie and other Florida
counties are sending personnel to aid in this effort, as we've done
Before, and people are contributing to the relief effort in countless
ways..
That works a lot better than looking around for someone to
blame for a natural disaster..

"EVACUEES"
Continued from page 1


work there. They had managed to make a comfortable living in
Boothville despite fishing regulation changes there as well. When
asked if they will fish here, the answer was no. "You can't make
a living here fishing," Jerry noted. "Permits are too high and you
are too limited with what you can catch." "Besides, if I got
permitted here I would lose my permits in Louisiana," he added.
What is left of their home is another issue. "We brought
pictures and I brought several quilts that I am working on for the
grandkids," stated Irene. "We just couldn't bring it all."
The Walkers know their home went under water even before
Katrina's winds kicked in. What they don't know is,,how much
was washed away. They haven't been able to see their.
neighborhood on the television. "We heard from several of our
friends, which made us feel good, but there are others we haven't
heard from," Jerry said. "It's hard not knowing how they are; if
they made it."
While they have loved staying with their daughter, the three
evacuees will be moving into a home in Cross City. They hope it
will be a temporary move and that they will be able to rebuild
back home in Louisiana. Until that time they are in need of beds,
bedding, towels and other household items. Beau is looking for a
car. "I've saved some money and I really need a way to go," he
stated. He is also looking for work.
If you have any of these items that you will be able to donate,
please call Donna at 542-7438.
Our next story started at 3:00AM on Sunday, just hours before
Katrina made landfall. A small caravan of St. Bernard Parrish and
Delacroix Island residents evacuated to Old Town where an
anxious Barbara Brown waited for her son Larry and his family,
along with the Stiglers, Grangers and William Merritt.
I first met the Stigler family at the Dixie County Public
Library. They were on the Internet trying to see familiar faces and
perhaps see a glimpse of their neighborhood. It had been several
days since Katrina had come and gone. In every picture they saw
either water or debris. It was hard to find landmarks that would
help them find their home that now belongs to the Gulf of Mexico.
. The Stiglers, Roy Jr., wife Dawn and sons Joshua 13 and Ray
III, 16, feel fortunate to have a friend like Larry & Debbie Brown
and can not say enough about his Mom, Barbara who has taken
them into her home. "She is our Saint," stated Roy.
Roy was prepared to stay and ride the storm out, sending his
family to higher ground. However it was Roy's mother who lived
through Camille, talked him into leaving with. his family, going as
far away as possible. "If it hadn't been for my Mom giving us the
money for gas, and Miss Barbara for having ,a place for us, I might
not. be here now," stated Roy.
The Stiglers lived in their brick home for 13 years. Roy had
worked as a. plumbers' helper and wife Dawn a janitor and
cashier. They are both looking for work now. "We still have bills
to pay and we need to feed our family," stated Roy.
It's the same with the Granger family, Charlie, Chad and their
Mom Barbara. Delacroix Island residents, they know that their
home is gone. "There's no way anything could have made it,"
stated Charlie. Both boys were guardrail and traffic control
workers and are 'anxious to get back to work. "We will do
anything," Charlie noted. "Sitting here is not going to help, we


need to be busy and to support ourselves." Barbara also has
experience as a janitor, cashier and can also cook.
Their Uncle "Bubba", William Merritt followed the group to
safety but was able to bring his carpet cleaning equipment with
him. "I do both residential and commercial cleaning," he stated.
He also stated that he would drop his prices down, just in order
to make some money. If you could use his services you can call
Miss Barbara's home in Old Town at 542-9595.
Larry was able to bring his RV along with some of their
clothes. However all his plumbing tools were left behind.
Licensed, Larry hopes to find work here in the Tri-County area.
Wife Debbie hopes to get a job in Trenton at one of the schools
there. "We all have to work, we all need to work," Larry stated.
Larry and Debbie's daughter Shelby, 9 and Joshua and Roy
Stigler have all registered at schools in Dixie County. It is going
fo be hard for these kids who had to leave behind their home and
friends to adjust to life here in Dixie County. Life as they knew it
has completely changed.
While these families found some clothes at the United,
Christian Services, they are still in need of boys size 16, men's
shirts from Medium to XXL, women's 2X and little girls 10-12.
By the way, Shelby's favorite color is pink. Men's pants sizes
32x30, 32x32, 34x32 and 38x32 are also needed.
While they all try to pick up the pieces of their lives and go in
a positive direction, not far from their thoughts are concerns for
those family members and friends they left behind. Roy's father,
Roy, Sr. was at Chalmette Medical Center and was supposed to be
transferred to a safer facility, but he doesn't know where that was.
He has had no word and has no way of finding out if he is safe,
The Granger's are worried about their loved one, Dawn. "We
have no idea if my sister is safe or what happened to her," Charlie
stated. "We also want to know what happened to our friends the
Gerataino's, Jeff, Toni, Amanda & Jessica," he added.
Larry did hear from one neighbor who was able to give
information on some of their other neighbors. However there are
so many more unaccounted for. Dawn Stigler's brother, Sal
Nicolosi, stayed and was rescued from the roof of his home.
"There were a lot of people that didn't have the money to leave or
even transportation," stated Roy. "It's hard to think about all of
them; we just don't know."
Adding to their frustration, is not knowing when they will be
able to go back and see .with their own eyes what happened to
their homes, their friends and loved ones. Conflicting reports say
it could be several weeks to several months to a year.
It is hard to grasp just what theses families are going through.
It could have easily been us here in Dixie. We have experienced
storms here, the Storm of the Century, and last year's Jeannie,
Charley and Ivan. Just a few months ago our coastal communities
were damaged during Dennis&. We know what the winds and
water can do. But we have weathered those storms together and
afterwards banded together, helping those in need. These five
families have come to us, our neighbors to the west and I know
that we can help them, to give them support and to help them face
the challenges they will face in the months to. come.

If you can help, please call Miss Barbara's at 542-9595.

developing faster than we will be able to
provide care," he added., "We need to change
our way of thinking to transporting every patient
to Gainesville which has become overcrowded
and i'nadequate-.'' Bellot noted. He added that
now is the time to act, before it is too little, too
late.
Dixie Commissioner Buddy Lamb stated
that he had talked to one official at one of the
larger Gaines% ille hospitals who admitted, that
the load coming from outlining communities
like Dixie, Levy and Gilchrist, has become a
u." problem. "I feel that when we go before the
State Bureau this time, there won't be the
f opposition from the large hospitals as there was
before." Lamb said.
The new and improved plans call for a new
. name as well, the Chiefland Hospital, LCC and
..will be located behind Wal-Mart in Chiefland.
^ Initially-it will have 32-beds but will have room
' to expand. It will be a full-service hospital and

"KA TRINA RELIEF"
Continued from page 1I


You can find the trailer next to Hitchcock's grocery store in
Old Town. Brim stated that he has been amazed at the response so
far. At first he had planned on footing the bill for fuel and a driver
himself, but folks have already stepped up to the plate and the fuel
cost has been taken care of and the driver, Herbert Colson is
donating his time as his way of helping. Any additional funds
raised will go towards a second load or directly to the victims
, through a local church in one of the devastated areas.
Baby items, including toys are in need. Brim noted that a
young girl brought by a stuffed monkey to give away. Touched by
the gesture the men have made the monkey their mascot and have
it hanging up. "It will be the first, toy that will be .handed out,"
stated Casper Mullikin a volunteer for the project.
Othef items being accepted are any hygiene products, non-
perishable foods, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. "Those folks
need everything," stated Brim. "And we promise that they will get
it directly from you to them." "If we see a family in heed on the
road, Colson will stop, open the truck and load them up," Brim
stated. However, the truck is headed for a church that will be able
to help find those most in need.
The group also is asking for volunteers to help load the trailer.
Opened in the morning, items will be collected throughout the day
until just before dark.
For more information you can call Brim's shop at 542-8741. If
no one is there, leave a message and they will get back to'you.

"GUBERNA TRIAL"
Continued from page 1

Congressman Davis is a fourth-generation Floridian and has
served the people from the State House to Congress and hopes to
serve as our next Governor. Davis is known to stand up for what.is
right, even if it isn't the popular thing to do. He has never forgotten
who he is working for, the people, and has a track record of getting
the job done.
In the 17 years he has served, Davis has helped pass balanced
budgets that improved schools, public safety, roads and health
care. He led the fight against offshore drilling on Florida's coasts
and wrote and passed the law protecting nursing home patients.
Davis recognizes that seniors are a growing population and that
their needs are special. "I want to be able to give them more
choices," stated Davis. "We need to draw families more into
helping with their older family members," he added "They deserve
our undivided attention and to receive nothing.but the best of care
whether it be at home or at a facility like Cross City Rehab," he
added. Currently Davis is co-sponsoring a bill that will help folks
get long-term care insurance, another venue in which they can plan
for their future needs.
Davis spent time talking with many -of the residents and
enjoyed his tour around the facility. Davis noted that the Cross
City Rehab was a good example of quality care and commended
the staff for their work at the center.
Also in attendance were City Clerk Angie Bush, former City
Manager Gary Poore, and Superintendent of Schools Dennis
Bennett. Each had time to meet with the Congressman, but they
mostly were interested in seeing what the veteran of Tallahassee
had to say.
Everyone enjoyed a feast of refreshments and just good ole'
conversation.
If you would like to learn more about Congressman Davis, you
can'do so by logging on to www.jimdavis2006.com. We wish the
Congressman the best of luck in the upcoming election.

New Prospect Baptist News
Sunday morning, we kicked off our new Sunday School year
with breakfast in the church annex prior to Sunday School....many
thanks are due the ones who prepared the delicious food for this
event. Our services were special Sunday, as we finished a week of
anxiety and much compassion for the people in Louisiana and
Mississippi who had born the brunt of Hurricane Katrina. Many of
our members have relatives in Southern Mississippi, with whom
they could make no contact in the aftermath of Katrina's landfall.
In response, New Prospect gathered provisions, fuel, and other
needed items, and a crew was assembled to transport these
essentials by truck to the stricken area. We thank God that they
found .their relatives safe, and that He granted the crew a safe
return home.
On Saturday, September 10th, the Men's. Outdoor Extravaganza
will be held in Branford. On Monday, September 12th, our Ladies'
Ministry will meet, as well as the Pastor/Deacons, followed by our
monthly business meeting on Wednesday evening, September
14th.
Please be much in prayer for all the ones who were victimized
by Hurricane Katrina and, as always, all the people on the various
prayer lists, our military personnel, and the President and other
leaders. Hope you had a good Labor Day holiday, and have a nice
rest-of-the-week. You're always welcome to visit with us at New
Prospect....may God bless you.

Faith Baptist Church News
We h'ad a glorious day at Faith to0ltay. The crowd d as large and
the Spirit as strong. Many of our members are away helping with
the.' cleanup disaster left by hurricane Katrina and we are very
much in prayer for them as well as the residents there. We ask that
you join us in praying for the safety of all.
Bro. Jackie brought two fine messages that God had laid on his
heart and as usual, the special music was outstanding. Janet Osteen
sang for us in the morning service and Heather Fore, backed up by
her grandparents. sang in the evening service. After the morning
sen ice %e had a baptism and that's always a special blessing. God
just blesses so much at Faith.. .
We had se\ eral visitors and we are always thankful for them.
They are such a blessing to us and we pray that they felt welcome
and loved. If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to
share ours. If you're just passing through, we invite you to stop in
i anytime.
Remember to .pray for the sick and the ones who have lost
loved ones. Come out for services this week and bring someone
with you. God will bless -you for it.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"Free from Leaven"
Continued from last week, I, the Day of the Lord, say Jesus warned
the disciples to beware of leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Now the
doctrines of the Sadducees were definitely false, for they denied the
resurrection, the fact of angels and spirit, and so forth. They were the
predecessors of our modem religions, which have a form of Godliness but
"deny the power thereof." They denied the supernatural; and we have
plenty of Sadducees in the world today.
I, the,Day of the Lord, say But the Pharisees, on the other hand, were
quite orthodox in their teaching; so much so that Jesus commanded His
own disciples to observe and do what they said (Matt 23:3). Why then did
He tell the same disciples to beware of their doctrine? For this simple
reason. "They say and do not." What they said was all right generally
speaking, but their works gave the lie to their teachers.
I, the Day of the Lord, say They teach about the power of Jesus'
blood; they lift you to heights of praise as they expound the glories of the
celestial, and the power of Christ's resurrection; they speak much of the
miracles of Christ, and the power of the early church; they will epound
the doctrines of healing'and miracles, and the various gifts of 'the Holy
Spirit. But "they say and do not." And not only that; for they condemn and
denounce the man who wishes to go in and explore the glories of
'resurrection life and the powers of the age to come."
I, the Day of the Lord, say They think it is:alright to talk about
resurrection and life and the Heavenly realm- but when one suggests that
this is the heritage of the people here and now, there are loud protests from
the Pharisees. Then the leaven begins its subtle influence, and an orthodox'
theology develops into malice and wickedness.
I, the Day of the Lord, say to the people of God everywhere, let us
launch out into the deep! Let us lifi our anchor which has gripped the earth
for so long- and let us become anchored to Christ in the heavens, where
we ought to be anchored. For God has intended that our anchor should
pass into the heavens, behind the veil, Whither the forerunner has for us
eitered. (Heb 6:19-20). 'If we are anchored to the earth, and-to the
doctrines of men, we will be earth-bound creatures: But once we anchor to
Heaven and to the Man behind the Veil, we are Heaven-bound creatures-
and we are constantly rising higher and higher and higher into the realms
of the Spirit.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Then one day, thank God!- the veil of the
flesh shall be rent asunder, and we shall see Him as He is! And when we
speak this way, we are not talking about physical death, nor about a
rapture; but we are speaking of seeing Him "who is invisible" as Moses
Sdid ofold. We shall see Him, even though the world see Him not.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Did not Jesus say, "The world seeth me no
more; but ye see me..." (John 14:19)? And was He not speaking of seeing
Him in the Spirit, because of the coming of the Holy Spirit into the hearts
of the disciples? Continued next week.

Abundant Life

& Living



i By Lucille Stockton


"JOY" Isaiah, 12:3 (kjv) States: with joy we draw water out of
the wells of salvation.
Salvation delivers and sets free: therefore it is impossible
to live the abundant life in Christ with out having joy. The
writer states, salvation has wells of water plural; meaning
more than one well. So we have choices, we can sing for joy.
Joy Is in the wells, songs are in the wells, also-praises, love,
peace, honor, respect, forgiveness, serenity, all we need is in
the wells for us. However we cannot draw water out of the
wells if we are sad, grumpy, selfish, hateful, low in spirit,
judgmental, have low self esteem and such as. Sadness makes
the heart sick, and it effects the whole body. It shows on the
countenance. Joy is contagious. It spreads out all around you.
Joy changes the environment in the home, on your job, It's
magnetic attraction draws people into it's circle. I like the old
adage, Smile and the world smiles with you. If you have joy
people like to be in your company. If you are sad they leave
quickly if their joy can't lift your spirit. Joy permeates the
whole natural body. It also keeps your spiritual birth strong
and vibrant.

(NAPS)-Drip irrigation
can be a great aid to the effi-
cient use of water. A well-
designed drip irrigation sys-
tem will lose practically no
water to runoff, deep perco-
lation or evaporation. Steady,
consistent watering can also
lower plant stress, which
leads to healthier plants
while lowering your water
bill. Rain Bird offers an

The Word Made
Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son: of,man, say, some people
believe that the creation of Heaven
and earth in Genesis means
literally the creation of the.
universe. That Adam means the
first man on earth, they could not
believe otherwise 'because they
had not been told the truth. They
had not been told that to create
Heaven and earth it would take the
collection of those who had died
in the world. And to found (mold),
to set up or establish a firm
enduring existence. A structure
built on a firm base or ground.
That an angelic Heaven be
created, and from this to produce a
church on earth. (Rev 21: 1,2)
"And I saw a new Heaven and a
new earth: for the first Heaven and
the first earth were passed away;
and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the Holy City,
New Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of Heaven prepared
as a bride adorned for her
husband." The Holy City
Jerusalem means the doctrine of a
new church. The doctrine
descended because the church is a
church from doctrine and
according to it. Without doctrine a
church is no more a church than a
man is a man without the members
of his body. No more than a house
without rooms and furniture.
I, the son of man, say it may
seem paradoxes, but not so. That
the natural world could not exist
except from the spiritual world. It
could not subsist since subsistence
is perpetual existence. That the
church cannot exist in man unless
it's internal be spiritual and it's
external natural (the natural
clothes the spiritual). There is not
any such thing as a church purely'
spiritual or a church all-natural.
I, the son of man, say all the
things about Adam and Genesis
are about the state of the first
ancient church; of it's rise or
morning, of it's progression or
Evening, it's end or night. After
this, the last judgment upon it, and
then a new angelic Heaven made
up of the faithful. And a new hell
of the unfaithful. I would like to
prove by the word to back up what
I have said. Now the word
Creation means and, signifies' to
produce' anew, to' form, to
regenerate. To regenerate- is to
create a new creation.
That a universal Heaven
formed of angels and the universal
church formed of men. Exists,
consists, and subsists. (PS 51:10)
"Create in me a clean heart 0
God; and renew a right spirit
within me." (PS 102:18) "This
shall be written for the generation
to come: and the people which
shall be created shall praise the
SLord." Love you. Continued ne'i

The Urban Meyer

Show Is Underway
GAINESVILLE Florida's 21st coach
has his first official game under his belt arid he
can unpack those boxes he brought from Utah.
Maybe Urban Meyer will turn out to
be the real deal. For certain, he knows Florida
football is.
"I had a ball here tonight," Meyer
said following his first win as Gator coach. "I
had d helluva time."
He brought out a record crowd. His
quarterback broke a record held by Florida's
most famous player/coach. And he kept his
record at a perfect 5-0 clip for opening games.
"The Swamp Experience" was a bit
overwhelming to him. At the end of the third
quarter; as the traditional singing of "We Are
The Boys" got underway, Meyer stopped in
the middle chewing out a player.
"I looked up and saw everybody
swaying to 'We Are The Boys' and listened ...
and then I went back to chewing him out," said
Meyer.
Oh yes, and there was a football game
where they kept score.
For all you cynics out there who say
beating up on little Wyoming of the Mountain
West Conference, 32-14, is no big deal, take a
look at these numbers:
The biggest crowd ever to watch a football
game in the state of Florida turned out for
Meyer's debut, some 90,707 crammed into Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium on a rare sub-80 degree
day (79 at gametime).
Chris Leak threw three touchdowns passes,
all to .Chad Jackson, and proved he can take a
hit. And by the way, Jackson got a fourth
touchdown on a pitchout from Leak.
:-Leak threw for 320 yards, including 17
straight completions, eclipsing a record of
almost 40 years set by Steve Spurrier against
both Florida State and North Carolina State.
So far, so good.
The Gators' execution was not
without hitches. Leak was sacked four times.
Their running game was non-existent just 91
yards. and backup quarterback Josh Portis
posted half of that.
Though Meyer didn't like some of the
things he saw, he said he'd never "apologize
for a win." He did, however, have harsh words
for others.
"In case you are wondering about our
offense should look like, that's not it," said
Meyer. "We've got a lot of work to do
tomorrow. And Chris Leak and this offense
Shs a -long way to go."
He called the running game "pathetic"'
and claimed that if it didn't improve, "we may
not win many more games."
VWhat he. took from "ith' night."
ho, e' er, was tirsr stepping off the field. : .
"Running through the tunnel it was-
everything (former. Gator) Lito Sheppard said
' it would be. That's as big time as it gets for a
home game."
There's a whole bunch of "new
tradition" at Florida, including the Gator Walk
where the players walked just a block or so
through a mass of humanity to get to Florida
Field. Before the;game, there %%as the Pledge
of Allegiance, National Anthem and school
Alma Mater. Then the ,team came out of the
tunnel and passed through a human gauntlet of
former Gator players.
After the game came the Alma Mater


and the players charged toward the North end
zone, helmets in hand overhead, singing the
Florida Fight Song in front of the band.
None of that may count on the
scoreboard, but it adds to the already colorful
pageantry of Southeastern Conference football
and Gator tradition.
If nothing else, the Florida football
coach has proven he's become a huge Gator
fan.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. These are the times when we need football
in the South to help distract some of the good
folks of the Gulf States from their nightmarish
existence.
2. Talk about new beginnings: The
Devil Rays could start next season with a new
principle owner, new general manager and a
new manager.
3. Breathe deep, Ron Zook, and be
thankful your Illinois Fighting Illini were on
the right side of that 33-30 overtime instead of
Rutgers.
4. Urban Meyer must have been
serious when he said "it's about the players,"
because there was no photo of him on the
cover of either the game program Saturday or
Florida's new media guide.
5. Speaking of coaches' photos,
,covering the entire front page of the Columbia
State newspaper on Friday was Steve Spurrier
in black shirt and visor treatment he didn't,
even get in Gainesville.
Short Stuff
Greg Norman volunteered the use of
his helicopter for the rescue efforts on the Gulf
Coast ...-Among those selling orange and blue
w risibands to raise money for Katrina victims
on the Florida campus was former Gator and
Chicago Bear running back Neal Anderson.
Today's Proverb
Motivation determines what you do.
Attitude determines how well you do it.
And rood morning...
,..,to Bobby Stoops. Losing to Texas
would bebad enough, but for Oklahoma to get
beat by .TCU is a heresy to Boomer Sooner
pride.

STEINHATCHEE FISHIlM REPORT
by Capt. Brian Smith
Eavesdrop
I spend a many an hour eavesdropping via the
VHF radio on channel 9. Floating in the vastness of the
Gulf and hearing another person's voice, that
is greater than 32 feet from me, can give a
comfort in case ever something would go
terribly wrong. Mostly what I hear is idle
chit-chat with a country-fried trucker overtone.
On weekends, the radio waves are filled to the
point that a ten minute silence would be golden. I
feel like I'm rolling the big rig down 1-95 with a
load of marine parts and fishing accessories.
Surprisingly, one thing the radio can
do is indicate how well the grouper are
biting. If the bite is on, it is a wonder some
have time to reel in a fish for grabbing the
microphone and telling their buddy about it.
"What about it Rubber Ducky this is
Daddy's Paycheck..." "Go ahead" "We're
killing 'em" "Where ya at?" "You remember that place
we were at a few weeks ago with Uncle Chewy?" "Yea,
You bottom fishing?" "Trolling" "What are you fishing
with?" "You remember that plug I bought at the Walmart
when we were there with the girls... Green and yellow
with the 58 black stripes?" A long silence follows because
Daddy's Paycheck stumbled and broke Fishing Man Code
#164.A3 a.k.a. letting the cat out of bag. After an
uncomfortable delay..."Tccecen fo'". I wonder what
Rubber Ducky said after he turned the microphone off?
Yacking about catching fish is fine if everyone is
doing equally well. However, a radio can become a
torment if the bite is generally slow except for one guy
who discovered a hot-bed of fish and can't keep his hand
off the microphone. "How bout it Stink Bait this is
Mamma's Ring" "Go ahead" "How ya doing?" "We're
picking up some grunts, bout it" "One more fish and I'm
limited out!" "Ten four" The words of one gleeful
individual wafts across the radios. of less fortunate boats
like a fart in church where no one says anything but we all
want to get up and leave.
I've had days when we were picking up a fish
here and there. A slow process of making a good basket of
fish can put a drag on the day. In chirps Bubba "How bout
it Reef Robber this is Wave Whacker." "Go ahead R&R."
"How ya doing?" "We 'bout to wrap this up, you?" "We
limited headed to the hill" "Teecen fo, we be right behind
you" It takes much self restraint not to grab the mic and
yell "Shut up, I'm trying to make a living out here!"
Instead of doing that, I use it as an incentive to fish harder.
I've also learned not to let it get to me. The next day, when
no one who was on my boat would ever find out, of coarse,
I found out those two boats limited out with a combined
total of twenty grouper and had me somewhat disappointed
with the less than limit of twenty four on my boat.
"How bout it Fishing Fool this is Sea Chaser"
"Go ahead" "You ain't going to believe this but we got
nine hawg grouper. The smallest is fifteen pounds and the
biggest is close to thirty" "Way to go 'hawg dawg'! Got
pictures?" "Naw, but I'am going to get one of those idiot
proof cameras at the marina when we get to the dock."
"Teeeen fo" I listened to that and turn to see five guys
looking at me. The largest grouper we had may push just
over ten pounds. In awhile, one asks "Captain, what's the
biggest grouper you ever caught?" I smile and.say "thirty-
one pounds". Then I tell the truth "Twenty five and half on
the scales." And I explain "Radio fish can weigh a bunch
more than land fish." I erase some of the confused looks
when I say "A radio fish can lose 50% of its weight when
it's put in the cooler and brought back to land." The rest of
the confusion was lifted when I relate "I remember a guy


telling me he caught a thirty five pound grouper that day. I
said I've never seen a thirty five pound grouper come off a
recreational boat in Steinhatchee. I asked where it was at
and he replied "in my cooler on the boat". That is a whale
of a catch, I'd like to see it, if you don't mind. By the time
he slid off the Tiki bar stool and got to the boat, the fish
had lost ten pounds. It lost five more after stepping on the
boat. It lost a couple more once the cooler lid came open.
It was a fine eighteen pound .gag grouper. The point is:
Don't believe everything you hear.
The radio can get quiet when the fish aren't
l cooperative. It's been quiet lately during the heat of
summer. Keeper grouper are hard to come by inside of
sixty-five feet when the sky-heater is on broil.

thick with moist salt vapor and the still heat
can make time slow down. Toward the end of
the day some will quip in that the fishing is
terrible. "We wasted the day to catch two or
three grouper." And I think, no you wasted a
day because you chose to grouper fish all day.
There other fish in the sea. Many of which are
so active that they have vaulted themselves out
of the water to show you. "Oh, those are just jack crevalle,
bonita, spanish mackerel, bluefish or barracuda, I don't
like eating those!" "When's the last, time you missed a
meal?" Would it be a horrible waste of time to take a half
an hour to toss a spoon, plug or anything into a school of
exploding fish and have your reel drag tested. Heck, scare
yourself and use the lightest tackle to test yourself. If you
lose the fight, what have you lost? Watch out, that
inedible, waste-of-time fish just slapped a smile on your
face, made you stop thinking about how hot it was and
gave the rest of the crew something fun to do besides sweat
excessively because you're obsessed with a single species
of fish. Goodness, it's a win, win, win triple crown of
fishing fun. This week I had a fourteen year old boy land a
barracuda six inches shorter than he was tall. That day we
caught a few grouper and some snapper but what do you
think he's talking about when he tells his friends at school.
about his fishing trip? Don't fish with your stomach. Life
offers too few fishing trips to get anchored down by what
you pass through your gastrointestinal tract. Fish with
your mind and fill it with great memories.
Sometimes I believe the radio is on the comedy;
channel. I'll share these two gems.
"Jim, Jim this is Bob" "Go ahead, Bob" "Jim,:
Jim this is Bob" "Bob this Jim, what can I do for you?"
"Jim, turn your volume up I can't hear you good."
"Mike, Mike this is Johnny." "Mike, Mike this is
Johnny." Mike, Mike this is Johnny!" Mike, Mike this is
Johnny!!" "Mike, turn your radio on."
And in closing, I hear this question asked all the
time. The answer is fourteen. Ten plus four equals
fourteen. Roger?
Oh, just an FYI moment: When you make. a
statement on your VHF radio and end it with the word
'over', it means you are expecting a reply. When you
make a statement on your VHF radio and end it with the
word 'out', it means you are not expecting a reply. When
you make a statement on your VHF radio and end it with
'over and out' I think it means you expect more
communication but you're not going to listen. I believe it
is analogous to when you're bickering with your other half
and she provokes your response but she ain't going to
listen to a word you say. Don't use 'over and out' because
it only made sense in old.war movies and it didn't make
sense then either.
Thanks for taking your time to read this. Take
care of yourself and the tackle.

Bears Lose At Home

Number 11, Kirt Skelly, stretches out to make sure that his TD counts for the Bears.
Friday night's game at home proved to be a frustrating defensive battle for the Bears, as they
gave up the home field advantage in a loss to Newberry. The Bears started by kicking off to
Newberry. In what would later prove to be a defensive struggle, the Bears gave a touchdown to
Newberry early in the first quarter. Newberry added the extra point and took the lead 7-0.
Dixie took the kickoff and worked the ball towards the goal using a combination of short
passes and runs. As the first period came to a close, Yarrell saved the drive with a fake punt to set
up the first down needed to score in'the opening minutes of the second quarter. Yarell handed off
to the "go to guy" number 11, Kurt Skelly. Skelly stretched to the end zone for the score. Cassidy
made the extra point good tying the game 7 to 7.
The Bears, during the next series swapped quarterbacks as Gary David Pinner took over for
Yarrell. Pinner continued the running game using'Rodney Scott, A. J. Land, and Terrance George
as his work force to move the ball into field goal range. Cassidy's attempt fell short and Newberry
took possession just short of halftime.
During the second half Yarell again took the helm as quarterback and worked the defense, but
the Bears continue to be n.r. nicJd h-, fumble in critical situations. Newberry capitalized on these
mistakes and turned a record er) into a score making the game 13 to 7. The extra point attempt fell
short giving the Panthers the lead.
During the forth quarter the Bears dominated the Panthers in terms of possession time. Yarell
continued to use VanAernum, Pinner, Scott and Land to gain yardage and. first downs. In a
handoff play to VanAernum the Bears tied the score 13 to 13 and pull ahead as Cassidy booted the
extra point. As the fourth quarter wound down it proved to be a disappointment to the Bears, as
Newberry scored on a pass. into the end zone. The Bears held the Panthers on the extra point
conversion making the score, Panthers 19, Bears 14. Once again a mistake stops the Bears'
comeback when Newberry recovered a fumble deep in Bear territory.
The Bears will need to work on their pass defense as well as holding on to and protecting the
.ball. Newberry was a worthy opponent that will help the Dixie county team in their quest for a
district title. The Bears played a tough defensive game but in the end, it was the, passing that
.proved to be the deciding factor,
Yarrell continues to get better and Pinner looked like a good back up. The combination of
Scott, VanAernum, Land and George will continue to give the QB a varied arsenal in the running
game. Terrance George, in this game, has earned high marks for his efforts and in the future
should prove to be a standout player for the next game.
Coach Wilkerson told the team in the post game huddle, that the goal was still, to make the
play offs and that this game was decided by turnovers. Wilkerson commented that "We let them-
have too many long pass plays, we must improve in that area. We tried to put the kids in places
where we hope that they would make plays."
Next week we find the Bears headed to, Santa Fe to take on the Raiders of Santa Fe High
school. This game is sure to be filled with good high school football action. Come and support
Dixie County... .Go Big Red.

Old School Pumps Can't
Charge $3 Bucks a Gallon!
As gas prices swell over $3
bucks a gallon in many parts of
the United States, some old
school gas retailers are out of
luck. They're actually turning
customers away because their
antique pumps can't be set above
$3. About 200 gas sellers in rural
Vermont own pumps too old to
compute the higher prices,
causing some to shut their pumps
down completely. Bill
MacDonald, owner of central
Vermont's Waits River General
Store, said, "I knew my pump
was old but I didn't expect prices
to rise this fast." The 25-year-old
pumps can't display any price
above $2.99 a gallon. (Yahoo!)

Beat Gas Prices With More
Horse Power
In Minot, North Dakota, Jim
Jundt has found a way to beat the
suddenly outrageous gas prices.
He now makes his 15-mile
commute to work as a mechanic
at Goodyear on horseback. Jim
says he often joked with his co-
workers that he would ride his
horse to work if gasoline ever hit
$3 a gallon. So when the price at
the pump soared to $3.20 last
week, Jim headed for the barn.
He said he was only five minutes
late riding his mare,-'Patty, to
work. While he worked, Patty
waited patiently, eating hay out
of the back of a truck.

Accounts vary about how it started. But how it ended is clear.
One side said that the soldiers didn't have to treat him so rough.
The other side said that he was uncooperative and was resisting
arrest. As with most things, the truth probably lies somewhere in
the middle, but regardless of how it started, when it was over Chief
Sitting Bull, famed leader of the Sioux nation, was dead.
Most of us remember the name Sitting Bull as the great and
powerful medicine man who was the spiritual leader of the Sioux
at the Battle of Little Big Horn But many don't know that years
later, famed frontiersman and showman Buffalo Bill Cody took the
great Sitting Bull and his favorite horse on a worldwide tour in his
wild west show. When the rigors of travel got too hard on the
aging medicine man, he came home.
For 10 years he'd been living under a grant of amnesty from
the United States government. But now another Sioux leader was
telling members of the Sioux nation that they .could defeat the
United States, and word reached the authorities that Sitting Bull
was helping to create a rebellion. Forty-three Native American
soldiers from the United States army arrived to arrest Sitting Bull.
When the arresting Indian officers seemed to treat the elderly chief
roughly, Sitting Bull's followers became enraged. Suddenly a shot
rang out and Sitting Bull slumped over.
The air was filled with tension. People didn't expect this to
happen.. Then for no apparent reason, Sitting Bull's horse leaped
into the air and began to cavort wildly. It jumped from side to side
and reared up and swung back and forth. Then it lay on the ground
and kicked its legs. Sitting Bull's followers were convinced that
their chief had sent his spirit into the horse, and they saw it as an
order to get revenge for their murdered leader. Fierce fighting
erupted. As the shooting continued, the horse continued to leap
into air, and to prance on his hind legs, and to roll on the ground.
r Inspired by the horse's actions, the outnumbered Sioux fought
on. When the shooting finally stopped, 14 people lay dead,
including the legendary Sitting Bull. Did Sitting Bull send his
spirit into that horse? The Native Americans who were there say
he did.
Well, It's.a Little Known Fact that Sitting Bull's horse was a
trained and seasoned professional in Buffalo Bill's traveling Wild
West Show.. And each time the horse heard a gun shot, it was his
cue to begin performing his Wild West dance routine!

Myg Rules for Safety
1 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.
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.
-It is safer'for me-to be With other
people whern'going places or play-
ing outside. I always use the
"buddy system."
4 say NO if someone tries to touch
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..
6 I trust my feelings and talk to
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.
I7 t is never too late to ask for help.
I can keep asking until I get the help
I need.
1I am a special person, and I deserve
to feel safe. My ruies 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.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
S. DIXIE SCHOOL
S\ DISTRICT
IMPLEMENTS
FUEL
.. CONSERVATION
PLAN
The Florida Department of
Education has requested that all
SSuperintendent of Schools school districts begin immediate
: Dennis Bennettfuel conservation in response to
the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
Plans are being initiated all across the state by school districts
because suppliers of fuel cannot guarantee that fuel will be
available for our buses. We ask that the public understand when
inconveniences occur due to our current crisis.
Fuel concerns will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. We will
make every effort to keep the public informed if bus routes have
been changed due to a shortage of available fuel.
The following is a summary of the Dixie District School's plan
concerning this issue effective September 6, 20,05:
1. All non-essential administrative travel will be limited to
in-county trips.
2. All school trips by school bus or school, van, except
FHSAA contracted sporting events, will be cancelled.
3. A modified bus route plan designed to transport students
to and from school will be developed and presented to the
Superintendent no later than Friday, September 9, 2005. The
modified bus route will be implemented if the need arises. ,
4.. In an effort to conserve energy, staff members are asked
to set temperature controls at 75 degrees (buildings with computer-
controlled settings will be automatically placed at 75 degrees).
Staff members are also asked to turn off all computers at the end of
each work day.

Honoring An American Hero
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on highway 19 north of
Chiefland will be sponsoring a Bar-B-Que dinner fund-raiser for a
local American hero, Peter Herrick, Saturday, October Ist from 11
am-4 pm. Food, music, entertainment and a classic car show will
be available for a $5.00 donation per person.
Peter Herrick, who lives in Ft. White, was injured in Iraq
during an attack on his Humvee, which left him a quadriplegic on
May 2, 2004. Peter joined the Seabees of the U.S. Navy two
months prior to the 9/11 disaster. After a year of recovery at the
VA hospital in Tampa, Peter is at home with his family; wife
Diana and children, Drew 15, and Shayla 19.
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will match funds raised at
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Saturday, October 1st. The
Herrick family currently lives in a doublewide mobile home and
needs a new home designed to meet Peter's special needs. In
addition, Peter will need a van with a chair .lift for his motorized
wheelchair. The VA system can match up to $50,000, upon
approval, towards a new home and $11,000 towards the cost of a
vehicle. Home healthcare and physical therapy are also needed and
his monthly stipend from the military will only cover about half of
the cost of his needs.
Peter was a self-employed carpenter and has lost his ability to
earn a living and these funds will help ease some of the burden
from his family.
Join us on Saturday, October lst from 11 am to 4 pm at Good
Shepherd Lutheran Church on Highway 19, north (right next door
to the Dakota Vineyards). You can get a take out dinner if you
wish. If you are unable to attend the fund raiser and would like to
make a tax deductible donation to the Peter Herrick family, please
make checks payable to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and mail
to : Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, c/o Peter Herrick fund, P.O.
Box 2090, Chiefland, Fl. 32621.
For further information, you may call the church office at (352)
493-4597 on Monday or Wednesday mornings.

How Can We Help The Victims of

Hurricane Katrina?
If you fell overwhelmed by the horrible reports we have all
seen in the news, about the devastation .in Louisiana and
Mississippi and are wondering how you can help, here are some
suggestions. Before you make any financial contributions to any
relief organizations, check them out thoroughly to learn how much
of your contributions will actually be used for hurricane relief.
You may be surprised to learn that less goes to relief and more
goes to administrative expenses and salaries than you might,
expect, especially for some of the large and better-known
organizations. They do wonderful work, but they keep a
percentage of each dollar donated to cover their expenses.
The United Methodist Committee On Relief, also known as
UMCOR, is one of the few organizations where 100% of
contributions received for hurricane relief will actually be used
for that purpose. All of their administrative expenses are funded
through the United Methodist Churches' all over the world. If you
want to be sure the contributions you send for hurricane relief are
only used- to help provide food, water, shelter and necessities to the
neediest victims, please send your contributions designated the
Advance Special #982523 (or' Hurricane Katrina relief) to:
UMCOR, P.O. Box 9068, New York, NY 10087-9068, or you
can call them at 1-800-554-8583 and make a contribution via credit
card. You can find out more information about UMCOR on their
website at www.umcor.com.
To help remind this community to be compassionate and to
help out by giving the most generous contributions we can for
hurricane relief, First united Methodi.st Church will be playing two
particular songs during our noontime chimes "Rescue the
Perishing" and Thro.. Out the Life Line." When you hear these
songs, please remember to pray for the victims, the rescue efforts,
and remember to thank the good Lord for sparing us here in Dixie
County.
"Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give
you. something to drink? 'Whatever you did for one of the least of these
brothers of mine, you did for me.'" Matthew 25:37 & 40.
Rev. Howard Grimmenga Pastor, First United Methodist
Church of Cross City


Happy 21st Birthday


Legionnaires, Friends
Yesterday was one of those days for my family...you know the
ones...everything possible that could go wrong...DID. As we were feeling
sorry for ourselves, and all the suffering were going though. What am I
talking about? Do we live on the gulf coast? NO. Do we really have any
problems? NO. As I thought about the people, not refugees, but 'displaced
Americans, I could hardly contain myself. It is hard to comprehend, but
they have NOTHING. No home, no clothes, no transportation, no
communications, no food, no water, and some no family left.
For the next s seconds, just realize all the blessings that we have
compared to those people. Really put yourself in their shoes. can you
fathom what you would be doing ? Where you would be? Where could I
get help? It strains your faith almost to the breaking point. The name
'Katrina' will be remembered for generations.
What can WE do to help? So many organizations are working to help
the gulf coast residents, but one stands out to me. The American
Legion. Our Preamble to The American Legion Constitution says it
best.". .devotion to mutual helpfulness." This phrase is more than just
mere words on paper; it's our pledge of support to our distressed members
since early 1920's. The American Legion has been actively involved in
meeting the needs of posts and individual Legion family members. The
National Emergency Fund has kept posts from' closing and enabled
members to begin to rebuild their homes and their lives.
We have an obligation to assist those less fortunate members when the
need arises. All contributions to the National Emergency Fund are
deposited into a special account and are used exclusively to meet our
member's most urgent needs Not one single dime is used for fundraising,
administrative costs or fulfillment. Send your tax-deductible contributions
to: The American Legion, National Emergency Fund, P.O. Box 6141,
Indianapolis, Indiana, 46206. May the strength of GOD sustain us all, and
the hand of GOD protect us.
The general meeting will be Saturday at 10 Am at the post home.
Breakfast will be served from 8 till 9:30 AM by chefs, Major and Miriam
Stroupe.
Always remember that FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. Pray for our
troops stationed all over the world and the displaced gulf coast residents.
We MUST STEP UP and get the job at hand done. We have a lot of work
to do, so let's get started.
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY Dean Williams Adjutant

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept. 1st at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Only two more months until the Quilt show and
everyone is so busy getting ready. Each week crafts are coming in,
but we would like for everyone to wait a little longer to bring them
in, as we are getting full in all ways.
Christa Trehy has finished a red on white baby quilt and we
know it will be special for years to come. She is making a hooked
rug that was donated to us and she is to the half way mark. It will
be a beautiful rug and we may have to hang it on the ceiling as we
are running out of space on the walls.
Greg and five boys were out Tuesday. and got us looking great
again. The boys who come out are so much help inside and out.
They can do much that needs doing and sometimes it takes
muscles that I don't have.
We enjoyed having a couple from Milton, Fl. come by and
enjoy our museum as well as our food. We also want to thank Don
and Mary MacDonald from Waldo who donated a beautiful Tybee
Light House picture. It will be put up somewhere.
Lunch was so good with corn chowder, soybeans, three dishes
of spaghetti, veg. salad,-jello salad, corn bread, biscuits, coconut
and peach pie, cupcakes and so much more.
20 present with 2 guests.

attendant at Gornto Springs.
Commissioner Hays stated that he

an Assistant Coordinator or an
Administrative Assistant in the budget.
He informed the Board that he will'
retire in two years and the new person
needs to become familiar with the
county and its projects.
The good news is that if things

prepayment penalty. Also, the road
paving debt and the solid waste debt

Catholic Charities Collects Funds

For Hurricane Katrina Relief
The Catholic Charities Bureau of the Diocese of.Saint:,
Augustine is collecting financial donations of victims of Hurricane
Katrina. The finds will be forwarded to Catholic Charities USA'
who in turn will fund emergency and long-term disaster recovery'
efforts through its social service agencies in affected areas.,
Catholic Charities is unable to accept contributions of food,.
clothing, blankets and other relief supplies. '.
Please make checks payable to: Catholic Charities Bureau:
(mark on the check the funds are for Hurricane Katrina relief).,
Mail donations .to: Catholic Charities Bureau, 134 E. Church.
Street, Jacksonville, Fl. 32202.
While local agencies along the Gulf Coast and in South Florida
anticipate that they will provide some type of emergency
assistance in their communities, Catholic Charities' niche in-
disaster relief is to provide long-term recovery work. In fact,
Catholic charities agencies in Florida are still providing services to;
help people recover from last year's devastating hurricanes.
Based on past disasters, possible long-term services that
Catholic Charities may provide include temporary and permanent,
housing, direct assistance beyond food and water to get people'
back into their homes, job placement counseling and medical and
prescription drug assistance.
Recovery work is underway in Dade County, where Katrina
caused extensive flooding when it struck there last week. Catholic.
Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami has already distributed a
large load of baby items, food and other supplies to victims. Other'
aid that they will be providing includes assistance with food,,
shelter, rent, medicine, utilities and mental health counseling.
Catholic Charities USA, which has been commissioned by the
U.S. Catholic Bishops to represent the Catholic community in
times of domestic, disaster, responds with emergency and long-.
term assistance as needed. Its Disaster Response Office connects-
the church's social service agencies and disaster planning offices
across the nation.

Charities Bureau, Inc. for the Dioceses of Saint Augustine at (90d
