Highlights
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Once again the Dixie County Board of County Commissioners
met to handle county business and issues that affect its residents.
While the agenda was short there were several items that carried
the meeting into the late hours'
The first item of interest C 0

Horseshoe Beach residents
together in order to voice their
concerns over a proposed RV
campsite off the Horseshoe
Beach Road. Property owner
Marina Woolridge Miller
applied for the Special .. -
Exception Petition last month .
and it was approved by the
Board at the September 1st,
2005 meeting after the\ had received no public opposition.
The group attending the meeting stated they were not aware of
the petition until after-the-fact, however Zoning Official Billy
Keen had documentation where the meetings regarding the petition
was advertised in the Dixie County Advocate for two weeks.
Resident Mark Paules had questioned regarding the rezoning of
property located in the 100 year flood plain. Board Attorney Joey
Lander noted that Keen was well versed in zoning laws and the
County's Land Development Regulations as well as the status of
property throughout the county. -Keen was able to show that the

Horseshoe Beach Marina Open For Business As Usual
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Joe and Tasha Spradley,
owners of the Horseshoe Beach
Marina, have been fighting a
rumor they had sold the Marina
and closing down to make
room for condominiums for
Adi. rover a month now and it has
begun to affect their business.
o "There was even an article in
the Florida Times Union about
us closing," stated Joe. "We
have got to get the word
out...it's just a tumor!"
Before moving to
Horseshoe Beach as full time
residents eight years .ago, Joe

;visitors of the small coastal
community. "My Dad had a
-place here since the 1940's and
-as a young boy I can remember
spending many wonderful
vacations here," Joe noted. It
was those memories that would
prompt him to move their
family from the growing Lake
City, Florida to a community
.they already had grown to love.
The Spradleys had already
set up a part time clam farm off
the Horseshoe Beach coast and
within a year of moving they
..became the proud owners of
the Marina. Joe even took on

that will be receiving improvements in the next several weeks.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Several weeks ago Anderson Columbia, Inc. began work on a
paving project within the city limit of Cross City and made some
headway on the 20 roads that will receive partial replacement or
re-surfacing. This past week, the local paving company continued
the work that will result in 4 V/2 miles of road improvements.
According to City Manager Mike Cassidy, the project has been
a long awaited one; not only by the City Council, but residents
alike. The $550,000.00 price tag will be paid from advalorm taxes
which have been earmarked for street improvements.
Cassidy noted that the Council was pleased with the results so
far. Work should be completed in the next two to three weeks.

Commission Applies For
Additional FRDAP Monies
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board- of County Commissioners held a.
special meeting on September 8th, 2005 for the sole purpose of
finalizing a Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program
grant to be used for improvements at the Joe Henry Anderson,.Srt
Park. The park is located on the Suwannee River next to the Jo.e
Anderson Bridge, which had a floating dock and parking area:
added last year.
Proposed improvements listed in the new grant include rem6vaial
of several exotic plants and fallen trees, landscaping with native:
vegetation around the entrance area and along the boundary of the
boat ramp park, terraced steps to provide access to the river near:
the existing beach, nature trail along the river shoreline, a picnic
area including concrete tables, brick stove/grill, fishing pier,
wildlife observation area, playground, additional 15 parking
spaces, and bicycle racks.
The grant was written for $200,000.00 which would pay for the
majority of the project with the county providing the remainder
through matching funds and/or in-kind services.
Prior to the special meeting County Manger Arthur Bellot
asked Representative Will Kendrick and Senator Nancy
Argenziano at the Legislative Delegation Hearing, for their
support. Bellot noted that the park would fit in with the Suwannee;
River Paddle Trail as well as acting as an intersection for the
Nature Coast Greenway & Trails that is travels over the river.
Kendrick and Argenziano have been staunch supporters of Eco-
tourism and pledged their help and support.
If the grant is approved, work will begin sometime next year.

Bush's unique opportunity
The death of Supreme Court Chief Justice -William H.
:Rehnquist has left President Bush with a unique opportunity to
render a vital service to the nation, while fulfilling a promise he
made to the American people.
Chief Justice Rehnquist was appointed to the Supreme Court
K by President Nixon in 1971 and took office the following year. He
was named Chief Justice by President Reagan in 1986. William H.
SRehnquist was a jurist who fully understood the proper role of the
:judiciary-that this role was to uphold the Constitution and
: established law, not to re-write our laws according to the whims of
,, the New York Times, the ACLU and European socialist govern-
:, ments.
Appointing a judge of Rehnquist's temperament as his
^ replacement could shift the balance of power on the High Court,
^ assuming that John Roberts gets approved and doesn't disappoint
his conservative supporters, and provided Bush has the resolve to
; name a solid conservative to the second vacancy.
The best candidates for replacing Rehnquist were clearly
:Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, and one might logically
have expected Scalia to get the nod, based on his seniority on the
Court. Unfortunately, that's not how it turned out.
4.

: Feminists were urging Sandra Day O'Connor to withdraw her
: resignation in exchange for being appointed Chief Justice, but that
never happened, and it's just as well. Any such deal would have
: been a fool's errand on the part of President Bush. Ms. O'Connor
^ was one of Ronald Ragan's mistakes; she didn't need to be one of
George W. Bush's as well.
S While Bush's appointment of Roberts as Chief Justice is
: clearly preferable to coaxing Sandra Day O'Connor to stay on and
Assume that office, one cannot help wondering why Bush didn't
Simply do the obvious, which would have been to elevate Scalia to
" Chief Justice. Scalia earned the appointment, and while we can
Shop he won't be bitter about being passed over, one could hardly
Blame him if he came away feeling a bit resentful toward George
:" W.
: While the post of Chief Justice is what the man holding that
Z position makes of it, it does offer an opportunity for leadership to
Someone who can take the ball and run with it.
S It also presents an element of risk. We can understand why,. in
: 1953, President Eisenhower, a Republican, was reluctant to
.: elevate a Roosevelt or Truman appointee; but Earl Warren as
SChief Justice totally re-defined the role of the Supreme Court, and
? not at all for the better. Ike is reported to have said the Warren
) appointment was the biggest mistake of his presidency.

S Roberts looks good; but then, so did David Souter, and he


turned out to be a real wimp. I have high hopes for John Roberts,
but it might have been a good idea to let him get his feet wet as an
associate justice before lining him up for the top spot, particularly
with someone as qualified as Scalia clearly in line for the job.
When the dust settles on Roberts' appointment, President Bush
will have the remaining vacancy to fill, and he will need to make
a wise choice here, too. It will be no time to compromise with the
liberals who are comfortable with a judiciary that prefers social
engineering to constitutional principles.
President Bush has the political muscle, in the form of a
Senate majority, to follow through on his commitment to the
American people. If Senate liberals launch a filibuster despite an
earlier commitment to a vote by the full Senate, that option can be
: waived by a vote along party lines, at least provided too many
: Republicans haven't gone mushy.
d We can only hope that the President has the resolve to flex that
,goplitical muscle if it becomes necessary, as it quite likely will.


Letter to the Editor
Legion Appalled by Ruling: "Pledge ofAllegiance is Unconstitutional"
INDIANAPOLIS, September 14, 2005 Disgusted by today's
ruling by a federal judge in San Francisco that the Pledge of
Allegiance is unconstitutional, the leader of the nation's largest
veterans'organization pledged a total, unequivocal commitment by
America's 2.7 million Legionnaires to "fight with all of our legal
and legislative might to protect the right of schoolchildren to recite
the Pledge of Allegiance."\U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton
ruled, "the pledge's reference to one nation 'under God' violates
school children's right to be free from a coercive requirement to
affirm God."
"I am disgusted by this ludicrous attack on the traditional
values of the citizens of this country," said Thomas L. Bock,
national commander of The American Legion. "I'm sure the vast
majority of Americans feel exactly the same way. The words
'under God' are a tribute to America's constitutionally protected
religious freedom. There is nothing wrong with schoolchildren
acknowledging the fact that the founders of our republic openly
stated in their writings, before we even had the Pledge, that the
United States is indeed 'one nation under God.'"
The American Legion previously filed a "friend of the court"
brief, with the U.S. Supreme Court when atheist Michael
Newdow's lawsuit to remove the words from the Pledge was
upheld by the Ninth Circuit in June 2002 but dismissed by the top
court on Flag Day 2004. The Court ruled that Newdow could not
sue to ban the pledge from his daughter's school and others
because he did not have legal authority to speak for her. In last
year's decision, the court sidestepped the broader question of
separation of church and state.
"What is really at stake here is the moral direction of our nation
- the right of a free people to recognize that there is a Creator
referenced in the Declaration of Independence," Bock said. "The
American Legion will never back down. The right of our, children
to recite the Pledge of Allegiance deserves full protection. We will
do everything in our power to see that right is restored
permanently."
In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation
inserting "under God" after the words "one nation." The American
Legion supported the addition.
"I am confident that the Supreme Court will uphold our Pledge
consistent with the desires of we the people," Bock said.
The motto of The American Legion is "For God and country."

Letter To The Editor
My wife and I returned from Hattiesburg, Mississippi this
weekend after spending 8 days involved in relief work due to
Katrina. We worked jointly with the Florida Baptist Disaster Relief
Team as well as the American Red Cross.
I would like to share a few observations with our Dixie County
residents that the national media has not covered. We worked in a
cooperative effort with the American Red Cross and a large
contingent of Florida Southern Baptists about 90 miles north New
Orleans. As of last Saturday, 9-17-05, the American Red Cross had
distributed more than 40,000 hot meals from that one location and
more than 10,000 MRE's.
Hattiesburg and the surrounding counties received sustained
winds over 100 mph, and had over 20,000 houses significantly
damaged with over 2,000 destroyed. Destruction and despair was
indeed widespread with huge mature pine trees and oaks still lying
on house tops, roads and yards by the thousands all over the area,
not just in isolated locations. Power has been restored in most
sections of the city, but still not restored in all the rural zones.
Hopelessness, despair and suffering is still ongoing amongst
residents of the interior, not just New Orleans and along the coast.
We personally saw a line of cars well over a mile in length waiting
to talk with authorities to get financial aid in their plight. This
hurricane did not show bias as to race nor political preference nor
religious affiliation. We were elated to'see the donation of items
collected at Hitchcock's to help those in need.'We would like to
encourage our residents to continue to show acts of compassion to
those affected, to fully understand the danger of a major category
3,4 or 5 hurricane and to be thankful to God daily for the
provisions of food, water and shelter.

Boyd Kicks Off District

Healthcare Council
TALLAHASSEE-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida)
today hosted the inaugural District Healthcare Council meeting to
discuss local healthcare issues and concerns amongst the 24
representatives from 16 counties across North Florida:
Congressman Boyd formed the healthcare council so that the
counties he represents can work together to solve healthcare
problems on a local level.
"Access to quality, affordable healthcare is a critical part of
American life," said Congressman Boyd. "Although much more
needs to be done in Washington, there is more that we can do at
home as well. With representatives from each county in Florida's
2nd Congressional District, it is my hope that we can pool our
resources and develop common healthcare initiatives to improve
the overall quality of healthcare in North Florida."
Over the past year and a half, Congressman Boyd and his staff
have held over 50 meetings to establish the district wide healthcare
council. In addition, Congressman Boyd hosted 15 town hall
meetings across North Florida in February to give his constituents
the opportunity to voice their healthcare concerns and to start a
dialogue within the communities on healthcare.
Each county was then given the task of choosing a
representative to serve on the District Healthcare Council. The
mission of the council will be to tackle healthcare issues locally
and to prioritize appropriations requests for federal funding.
"The District Healthcare Council not only assembles
representatives from the entire district, but it also brings together
people from all different professions and points of view, so that the
discussions and solutions will truly be comprehensive and
representative of our unique district," Boyd stated. "By bringing
the district together, we will be able to turn these conversations
into workable plans to help our citizens receive the quality
healthcare they need and deserve."

Relentless Hurricane Season Will

Affect Fish and Wildlife
Florida's fish and wildlife may be in for a second assault from
Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf coast, but Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) biologists say the news won't be
all bad.
Another storm could take a heavy toll on sea turtle nests which
already suffered a massive setback in the beach erosion caused by
Hurricane Dennis last month. In addition, FWC biologists point
out that Florida's native species have weathered hurricanes for
thousands of years, and nature has equipped them to recover.
Fortunately, shorebirds have finished nesting for the season,
and the storm's effects on them will be minimal.
I A predictable result of hurricane damage is that local officials
and leaders will begin mobilizing almost immediately after the
storm to launch beach renourishment and clean-up operations.
Because most activities involving construction and use of vehicles
and heavy equipment are prohibited on Florida's beaches without
authorization from the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP), citizens and local governments should consult
DEP before undertaking any clean-up activities on the beach.
If any clean-up or repair activities are approved under an
emergency authorization by the state or local governments, sea
turtle biologist Dr. Robbin Trindell said, the FWC will coordinate
recovery projects to prevent conflicts with endangered species
protection.
"Once the state has issued an authorization for emergency
repairs, our office works closely with other state and federal
agencies to ensure that Florida's citizens can' take actions
necessary to protect and to repair their property without harming
threatened and endangered species that are also trying to recover
from the storms," she said.
Information on storm damage and any emergency
authorizations is available on the DEP Web site,
www.dep.state.fl.us/mainpage/em/default.htm.
Storms claim individual animals and destroy food and shelter
they need. In addition, non-native (and dangerous) animals may
escape captivity, and winds may scatter non-native plants.
Fortunately, most of Florida's native species are adapted to recover
from storms. Some non-native species are not, so hurricanes help
control their populations in the wild.
Fish populations may decrease when high winds stir up upper
and lower layers of water in lakes, causing fatal oxygen depletion,
but again, fish populations can recover promptly and, naturally.
Although local flooding often, results from particularly wet
storms like Katrina, there is an up side to the heavy rainfall the
storm would bring ashore.
"The rain would help recharge the aquifer and raise water
levels in ponds and other water bodies, and that would improve
conditions for wading birds and. certain other species," wildlife
biologist Jim Rodgers said.

property in question was not in the flood plain and could legally be
re-zoned.
With all that said, the Commission did find that the final notice
in the Advocate was printed the same day as the final hearing, and
therefore not in compliance with the time frame needed for public
notification. Lander noted that Miller would have to re-submit his
application and the hearings would have to be re-advertised.
Residents interested in this rezoning issue should watch the paper
for any future hearings.
Dick Edwards, Community Programs Consultant notified the
Board of the Florida Housing Finance Corporation's plans to
schedule a monitoring of the Dixie County SHIP Program in early
September to determine when the County's SHIP and Hurricane
Housing Recovery Funds will be restored. Along the same lines,
the Board instructed Lander to write to the state CDBG agency,
asking them to turnaround their previous decision to hold back the
$750,000 in CDBG funds for this quarter, citing their reversal in
another county which they had ruled against for the same reasons

Gary Pinner came before the Board on behalf of the Suwannee
River Livestock Pavilion, asking for their help in securing a grant
for a new show arena. Pinner noted they have estimated the cost
for the arena to be in the ballpark of $300,000. Pinner also asked
for a monetary donation from the Board of $10,000 to go towards
their portion of the grant. The SRL Board will be asking Gilchrist
and Levy County and cities in the Tri-County Area for their
support as well. The Dixie Board approved a resolution of support
and commitment for the project.
The County continues work towards tearing down the clam
building in Horseshoe in order to utilize an existing dock under the

Cross City
Woman Arrest

On Theft
Charges
On Thursday, September
8th, 2005 Dixie County
Sheriffs Office, Investigator
Keith O'Neal arrested Sally
Hatfield of Cross City on theft
charges.
The arrest came after a
complaint was made to the
Sheriffs Office on August 9th
stating that three tenants had
paid rent to Sally Hatfield,
who was managing the
Reedville Trailer Park at the
time. Hatfield allegedly did not
give credit for their payments.
Ms. Hatfield was arrested
without incident and
transported to the Dixie
County Jail.


hospital. What .they found was that the small snake was in fact, a
full grown pigmy rattlesnake.
Pigmy rattlesnakes, as their name suggests, are miniature
rattlesnakes, usually only 18 inches long or smaller. They are also
sometimes called "groundrattlers". Like their larger cousins, the
pigmy species even have rattles.
Well camouflaged, these miniature snakes can still pack a
punch when it comes to biting, and while there are no records of
any person dying from the bite, they can cause a person to become
very sick and damage to tissue.
Pigmy's give birth to 3-9 babies in late summer. The newborn
snakes are so small they could coil up on a half dollar piece.
Their preferred habitat is longleaf pine-scrub oak areas. They
eat small frogs, lizards, small mammals and insects.
Chewning spent five days in the hospital while being treated
for the bite. She is home now, continuing to recuperate. Her
prognosis is that she will fully recover and get her "stomping foot"
back in shape in no time.


FWC Academy Graduates 30 New Officers
Thirty new law enforcement officers for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) graduated from their
29-week academy and received their badges recently. Three of
these officers will be assigned to the North Central Region.
FWC officers are among the most diversely trained in the
country. Their first 22 weeks of training prepare them for
certification as law enforcement officers, but they must
successfully complete an additional seven weeks to earn their
FWC badges.
The additional training focuses on a variety of topics unique to
the agency's officers' responsibilities such as the forensic science
components of gathering and preserving evidence in conservation
law enforcement cases. Other unique training includes capturing
dangerous animals, identifying animal tracks, tracking individuals
and vehicles in wilderness areas, recognizing illegal commercial
fishing devices and traps and off-road night driving.
The FWC plans to begin training its next class of law
enforcement officers Feb. 26. Anyone interested in a law
enforcement career with the. FWC should contact Capt. Antonio
Kilpatrick at (850) 558-4083 to begin the screening process. The
agency is especially eager to recruit more minority and bilingual
officers.

Boyd Praises Coast Guard For

Katrina Recovery Efforts
Legislation will support and strengthen the Coast Guard in the :
coining years
WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida) today voted in favor of the Coast Guard and Maritimie
Transportation Act of 2005 (HR 889) which authorizes
approximately $8.7 billion for the Coast Guard in fiscal year 2006,
$861 million more than requested by the Administration.
"In the past few weeks, the Coast Guard has played: a
fundamental role in Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts," said
Congressman Boyd. "With severe flooding along the Gulf Coast
and the majority of New Orleans underwater, members of the
Coast Guard have worked tirelessly and risked their lives to rescue
those people trapped by the floodwaters. This legislation
represents our continued commitment to the important work they
do."
The Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act authorizes
$5.6 billion for operation and maintenance, including public safety
activities, port and waterway security, law enforcement and
maintaining navigational aids. The measure authorizes $1.9 billion
for acquisition, construction and improvement of facilities, vessels
and aircraft as well as $24 million for research, development,
testing and evaluation by the Coast Guard.
This legislation also allows the Coast Guard to establish Naval
Protection Zones up to 12 miles offshore, instead of three miles
under current law. In addition, the bill permits the inspection of all
ferries and maintains the current level of 45,500 personnel through
fiscal year 2006.
"As the Coast Guard continues to help the victims of Hurricane
Katrina, it is imperative that we do all we can to assist them in
their mission, and today's legislation is one way Congress can do
that," Boyd stated. "The measure authorizes funds to not only
maintain, but strengthen the Coast Guard in the next few years so
they can continue their important work of protecting our
coastlines."

SRWMD Urges Counties To Join

Online Parcel Data Initiative
The Suwannee River Water Management District (District) is
calling on all property appraisers within its 15-county region to
participate in a major initiative to make online digital parcel data
available to the public by the end of 2006.
At its meeting Tuesday, the District's nine-member governing
board adopted a resolution urging property appraisers to convert
parcel data from paper to digital format, and to make the
information available on county-managed web sites.
"This is one of the most important tools available to help us all
make better decisions about land use, resource management, flood
protection and other issues," explains District Executive Director
Jerry Scarborough.
"Recent events along the Gulf Coast have proven how vital it is
to gather the best, most accurate information possible, and to make
it readily available to the public," Scarborough says. "Everyone -
the District, the counties, and residents will benefit from having
this information on the web."
For its part, the District seeks to enter into partnerships with
property appraisers and will provide financial and technical
assistance to help convert paper maps to digital, as it already has
done for several counties.
"We want to help every county in our District to get on board
and online with this," says Governing Board Member Don Everett,
Jr., of Taylor County.
"We're living in an age where paper is 'out' and pixels are 'in'.
With this technology, counties can better serve the taxpayers by
cutting the cost of doing business while at the same time meeting
the needs of the public more effectively and efficiently," adds
Everett.
The District's goal is to make it possible for anyone to go
online and obtain all the data they need to make an informed
decision about a piece of property. For example, a person would be
able to identify a specific parcel and find out if it is located in a
flood zone, if it contains wetlands, and what types of land uses are
adjacent.
Converting the data to a digital format also will help streamline
implementation of the District-wide flood map modernization
program recently launched by the District in partnership with the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"Jerusalem Old And New"
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say God's Holy
prophets rose up from time to time (from Moses to Christ, when literal
Jerusalem was the city or dwelling place of God) and foretold when God
would give us a "better and more enduring substance," a time when that of
which literal Jerusalem was a "shadow" would become a reality.
I the Day of the Lord, say (Isaiah) says, "For, behold, I create new
heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor
come into mind. But beye glad and r or ever in that which I create:
for, behold, I create Jerusalem (yes made by Him, Whose builder and
maker is God") a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in
Jerusalem (which He creates), and joy in my people." Here we see Isaiah
is teaching us that "Jerusalem" and "my people" are one and the same
thing. In other words it is to be a city of redeemed souls, a spiritual city
and noit a literal cir, that you could see with your physical eyes.
nI the Da, of the Lord, say it was something yet future of Isaiah's time
but he foresaw it in vision. And when Christ came he said, "I will build
my church" which means the same as "I create Jerusalem." He is to be the
Lord over His own house "whose house we are," "whose builder and maker
is God."
I the Day of the Lord, say Zechariah also tells us something about
what she will be like!...Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without
(ecclesiastical) walls... For I saith the Lord, shall be a wall of fire round
about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. "This new Jerusalem
creation is to have such a good wall of protection that no enemy can go
through, and that no dross can remain inside of. God Himself is to be a
wall of fire round about her. Isaiah says... "saith the Lord, whose fire is in
Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem." This new "Jerusalem from above", is
a wonderful and terrible place no dross can remain in there. We have to
consign everything to the purifying fire of his word if we dwell in there.
I the Day of the Lord, say Isaiah tell us to take a look at this city, as he
saw her in vision." Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities; thine eyes
shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation... But there the glorious Lord will be
into us a place of broad rivers and streams. "Yes, she is a city of peace.
,He also tells us "The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad and
'the desert shall rejoice and blossom as a rose.. in the wilderness shall-
waters break out, and streams in the desert and the parched ground shall
become a pool and the thirsty land springs of water.
i I the Day of the Lord, say Many people who can only see the Word in
,the natural letter,'and have no spiritual understanding, are looking for all
,of these things to be fulfilled in literal deserts and water and roses. And
become they have not seen that yet they say the time of it's fulfillment is
iyet future, and that new Jerusalem creation is yet to come at some future
,time. Continued next week.

Abundant Life & Living
The power of prayer; Did you stop to pray this morning?
Believe me starting your day with God first on your agenda and
first in your life, makes a happy,
successful day. It blesses the whole
atmosphere around you. It bring
harmony in the household, vile
situations in divine order, on your
job grouchy co-workers become
kind and favorable, employers
become patient and considerate.
Prayer changes people and
things. Check yourself out, you
become divinely ordered and
serene. You will have a spring in
your steps, a smile on your face
Lucille Stockton and a song in.your heart.
Much prayer, much power. Its radiating power lights up any
dark place in your life. It's a drawing power, it enhances lasting
loyal friendships. Prayer is a strong force, try it with a prayer
partner, have a certain quiet time you pray together, day or night.
There is power in numbers. There is an old adage that says, "The
more the merrier", more praying together, more strength, it
refuels the soul. It helps to forgive, and accept others as they are
with love, and peace. Using prayer power you live your life
abundantly.
"Love Life And Live It."

New Prospect Baptist News
What a joy it was to be in church with family and friends again
Sunday! Again, our choir did an admirable job praising God in
song, after which our children's group blessed us with a couple of
songs. We thank God for these little ones who give freely of their
talents for His glory and- our listening pleasure, as well as for the
adults who work with them. Bro. Billy then brought God's timely
message in a clear and forthright manner, choosing his text from
Luke 19:10. This Sunday, we were blessed to have several young
candidates for baptism who came forward; God continues to work
among us!
We anticipate our monthly Fellowship Supper Wednesday
evening, September 21st, being a big success...it usually is! On
Saturday, September 24th, there will be another Community Sing
at New Prospect, beginning at 6:00 P.M.; hope to see you there!
Again, we had visitors Sunday, and hope that you'll return; all
are welcome to come and worship God with us. Hope you have a
good week....remember to be much in prayer for all the people on
the prayer lists, our military, our nation's leaders, and one another.
May God bless and keep you.


I try to take one day at a
time, but sometimes sev-
eral days attack me at

Life Chain Sunday Is October 2,
2005 Around The World
Life Chains are a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-
lifers standing for one hour praying for an end to abortion. It is a,
visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that
abortion kills our future children and that the church supports the
sanctity -of human life from the moment of conception. Please
bring your hats, lawn chairs, and strollers and join us on major
roads in Cedar Key, Chiefland, Fanning Springs, Newberry, Otter
Creek, and Trenton from 2 to 3 pm. One hour earlier in Bronson at
Capital Street and Alt 27 and in front of Sand Hill Baptist on SR
24. Signs are provided and will proclaim "Abortion Kills
Children", "Adoption the Loving Option", "Le Aborto Mata
Ninos", "Life the First Inalienable Right", "Jesus Forgives &
Heals", "Abortion Hurts Women", or "Pray to End Abortion".
"Cemetery of the Innocents" is pink, blue or all white crosses
representing the legal homicide of abortion with over 4,000
aborted babies a day in America. Crosses can be found at many
churches that pray for the family of the lost child and pray to end
abortion year around. God forgive our nation.

Homecoming At Central
Central Baptist Church will celebrate "Homecoming" on
Sunday, September 25. All members and former members are
invited to be with us on this special occasion.
Bro. Frank Padilla will be bringing the morning message. A
coveted dish lunch will be served following the message. What a
great time for food, fun and fellowship. It is also a good time to
meet with old friends and make new ones.
After a fine meal by our great cooks, we can sit back, relax and
enjoy some good singing. Our own singers will present the Gospel
in song. We have some excellent singers in our congregation. We
look forward to seeing you.
If you do not have a church home, we will gladly share ours.
God loves you and we love you.

Faith Baptist Church News
Bro. Jackie was back today with good reports from the revival
he just led at Mt. Nebo. Folks were saved and some rededicated
their lives and it was a really blessed event.
God is still blessing at Faith. We had a large crowd this
morning and it was so good to be in the house of the Lord. The
special music was done by Chris Lord and Tommy McQueen in
the morning service and they did their usual splendid job. Heather
Fore did the special in the evening service and she too did an
outstanding job. God is so good.
As we come to the end of another church year, we are in search
of officers for the coming year. Lots of folks have signed up
already and we are praying that you will sign the sign-up sheet in
the very near future if there is a job that you'd like to have.
God sent us 2 new members in our evening service and we are
so proud to have them. He just continues to bless us. He's sending
us good Christian people every few weeks, and we're so thankful
for that.
If you were visiting with us today we want you to know that
you are very special and we are so thankful that you chose Faith to
visit. If you are looking for a church home, you won't find a better
one than this and if you are just passing through we invite you
back anytime.
Remember this week to pray for a friend or loved one who is in
need of your prayers. Come out for Sunday school and Church
next week and on Wednesday night for prayer meeting. Be sure to
bring a friend or neighbor with you and God will bless you for it.
See you soon.

The Word Made
Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say God is a man,
as the universal angelic Heaven in
it's complex is a man, and every
angel and every spirit is thence a
man. Wherefore, take heed to
yourselves, lest you think of the
Lord as of a man like yourself, but
rather think of the Lord as of a
man who is God. All the angels of
Heaven, and all the men of the
earth who make the church, are as
,one man, and thai the Lord is the
life of that man.
Every angel is a perfect
human form, and Heaven in the
whole and in part has reference to
man, which is from the Divine
Human of the Lord, likewise that
there is a correspondence of all
things of Heaven with all things of
qman, that the like may be said of
the church of the Lord in the earth.
That Heaven is as one man,
experience hath taught, and reason
teacheth.
It hath been granted me to see
a society consisting of thousands
of angels, as one man of a
middling stature; likewise
societies consisting of fewer in
like manner. The church in the
earth also is before the Lord as a
man, likewise that it also.
distinguished into societies, and'
that every. society is a man;
ike,%ise that all who are within
that man are within Heaven.
I, the son of man, say every
man of the church is also an angel
of Heaven, for he becometh an
angel' after death: Moreover the
church in the earth not only,
together with angels, constitutes
the interiors of that man, but also
the exteriors, which are called
cartilaginous and bony: this the
church constitutes, because men of
the earth are endued with a body,
in, which the ultimate spiritual
principle is clothed with the
natural; this constitutes the
conjunction of Heaven with the
church, and the church with
Heaven.
I, the son of man, say the spirit
of man is not a substance separate
from the viscera, organs and
members of a man, but adheres,.
conjoined them, for a spiritual
principle accompanies all their.
stamina from the outermost to the
inmost, and thence also all the
stamina and every fiber of the
heart, and lungs; wherefore when
the connection is dissolved
between man's body and spirit, the
spirit.is in a similar form to that in
which the man was before; it is
only separation of a. spiritual
substance from what is material,
and hence it is, that the spirit hath
a heart and lungs as the man had
in th world; wherefore also it has
simili senses and similar notions,
and likewise it has speech, yet
senses, and motion, and speech are
not given without heart and lungs;
spirits also have atmospheres, but
spiritual:
I, the son of man, say how


greatly therefore are they
mistaken, who assign to. the soul a
peculiar place in any part of the
body, whether in the brain or in
the heart since the soul of man
which is to live after death, is his
spirit. Love you, .continued next
week.

S- You brought so many joys,
So many smiles and tears,
There .was always just one

We all can still hear you

You surely left a trace..
The funny things you used to say, And the way you made us feel,-
Not one single day goes by, That we wish you were here still.
You'll always be in our hearts, For forever we will love you,
And we can't help but think about, That day that we will be there
with you.
God took you for a very good reason, That I know is true,
He needed someone special, And undoubtedly he picked you.

STEIMHATCHEE FISHING 0 REPORT
by Capt. Brian Smith
Black Cloud
Normally, with these Woods 'N Water stories, I try and
keep things light hearted with a how to tip if you read carefully.
The stories are fun to write, for me,
because they let me recount a great
trip or happy time and, hopefully, that
pleasant moment is reflected well in
words so that you enjoy reading it.
Frankly, when I'm writing, I imagine .
somebody taking a few minutes, in
their plumbed single seat library,
before going to a job they really don't
jike and reading the 'offshore % .
Ienrure'. And if during that time,
lte words manage. to catch them up in
good time and it brings a smile or a
g)pd thought then I was successful. "
:^: This is the first time a story
.T6in't bubbled out of my brain. For
".is I've been trying to think of
Wnething to write, but nothing
:comes to me. I know why. I am worried about things.
J The grouper closure coming this November and
'December, two excellent grouper fishing months, has me
apprehensive as to what I'm going to .do for an income during
.the closure. The simple answer is fish for a different fish, right?
Sounds good but here's the twist. Red snapper season closes in
;No\ ember and the pelagic fish like kingfish, Spanish mackerel
Ond cobia are all exiting stage south. To boot, this has been a
poor year for-catching amberjack. I don't foresee a brief fall
appearance of AJ's to help save the day either. Grouper and
griints are about all that is left to catch in the late fall and winter.
Grouper are the 'meat and potato' fish for the charter business in
this neck of the woods. If grouper aren't apart of the offshore
equation then most folks would rather not go. I understand that
completely.
If the closure would have happened in the summer there
would have been other fish to play with or, here in Steinhatchee,
scallop charters would to help make ends meet. The November
and December closure shuts out many other options.
Furthermore, the two months after the closure, January and
February, aren't much to look forward too. The grouper fishing
ciai be fantastic in mid winter but weather is the problem. Cold
fronts march through every seven to ten days. We lose better
than half our charters due to poor weather and that is
considerable when business isn't that strong to begin with.
It boils down to the two month closure being an. effective
four month shut down. Frankly, I wouldn't mind if the closure
oequrred in January and February because it is cold and I really
doti't want to go in the first place. Does anyone ever think about
things like that or is haphazardness a kind of management plan
IfVe never heard of? I'm bothered when something that affects
so'many people is poorly thought through.
Unless you're Amish, you've had to notice fuel prices
haye rocketed. The cost of fuel, combined with the reduced
grouper bag limit have put fresh caught grouper at $100/pound.
"lobney, I was going grouper fishing today but I changed my
mind and bought this 72 inch plasma TV instead. I saved
$763.13 based on what it would cost me to go fishing!"
Last week I actually punched up another waypoint on the
GPS, looked at the mileage to get there and thought that's a:$50
round trip. I don't like thinking in those terms but it is real. The

cost of conducting business must be passed on to the consumer.
That means the price of charter fishing is going up. I don't want
to raise prices because I want the average Joe to be able to afford
a day off and go fishing. I don't want offshore fishing to be a
sport for the wealthy. I'm bothered when simple things begin to
fall out of the grasp of the average working American.
On a positive note,
yesterday I took a party

S" biting". Apparently, we
had stepped back in time.
Little B and I worked
double time to keep up
with the six anglers. Every
bait let down morphed into
a grouper within minutes of
touching the bottom. It
was somewhat of a relief
when the limit was met.
The moon was full, the tide was running hard, the seas were
calm and the grouper were rowdy. It was a dream bite.
The same thing happened with red and mango snapper.
The first guy to put down a bait was reeling in a pretty red
delight before the last guy was baited up. Red snapper were
snapping up cut sardines on the bottom and mango snapper were
picking off free lined baby pinfish off the stem. The trip was
turning but to be a perfect day. Jeff said "the only thing that
could make this any better is a big cobia". Literally, within a
minute a misidentified shark followed up a red snapper.
Little B tossed a couple of handfuls of cut sardines into
the water as I pitched a large pigfish amongst the chum. With
the reel in free spool, I could feel with my thumb the wiggle of
the pigfish. Wiggle, wiggle, fast wiggle, faster wiggle, frantic
wiggle, panic, wide spread panic, and thump stillness. The line
moved heavy, I put the reel in. gear and set the hook into a
railroad tie with a rocket booster. Line peeled off the reel at a
goodly pace. John, to my left, somehow broke my focus. "Can I
have it? Can I have it!? Oh, let me have it!!" I looked at him
with a similar look only a women can make during child birth.
The look that says I'm kind of busy with something at the
moment that translates into all languages. But I saw his face
beaded up with sweat, his eyes wild and wide open. His look
was a cross between a severely constipated Basset hound and a
serial killer. It unsettled me. "Here, you have the baby" and I
handed him my pole.
Fifteen minutes of smooth give and take and John lead the
cobia to where Little B could stick it with the. gaff. A great gaff
shot right under the chin. The fish weighed out at 41 pounds. It
was solid fish to end the day.
I needed that big cobia, I needed that fish rally, I needed
that crew and their kind words. It's things like that that keep you
going when the future seems a little dim. I'm thankful for the
good times. I hope they keep on coming.
Thanks for taking the time to read. Take care of yourself
and your tackle.

Pure Water Wilderness Launches New
Website A Comprehensive Resource
On Monday, September 12, 2005, the new website Pure Water
Wilderness went live. Pure Water Wilderness, the Dixie, Gilchrist,
Levy Counties Tourist Development Board, has launched a
comprehensive resource for tourists and local residents with the
new site, www.PureWaterWildemess.com.
The new site has extensive listings of everything fun: springs,
rivers, the Gulf, boat ramps, outfitters, trails, campgrounds, hotels,
bed and breakfast inns, festivals and events, maps and guides, even
antiquing and gift shopping!
The site is the result of extensive research and cooperation with
the three counties' nine chambers of commerce, producing a
complete listing of everything recreational. The board of directors
of the tourist board was instrumental in pulling this project
together. Stacey Brown, webmaster for Pure Water Wilderness,
said, "This was an enormous amount of work. I am very thankful
for each chamber director and their boards of directors for working
so closely with PWW to keep us informed of their membership
lists." The membership of the nine area chambers is the
membership of Pure Water Wilderness. She went on to say, "This
is a work in progress; things change constantly in the area, and I
count on our chamber directors to be there to inform us of any new
members that we can add to the website."
Pure Water Wilderness, otherwise known as the Dixie,
Gilchrist, Levy Counties Tourist Development Board, is a three-
county consortium with a 16-member board of directors made up
of tourism industry businesspeople and county commissioners
from each county. It is the mission of the board to promote nature-
based tourism in the pristine, unspoiled Lower Suwannee River
Valley.
Next time you're on the Internet, stop on by
www.PureWaterWilderness.com and take a look at what's
happening in the three counties. The Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy
Counties area is rich in history and natural beauty, the perfect place
to get away, or live. Find out what there is to do and see around
you in the Pure Water Wilderness!

New Weather Web Site
TALLAHASSEE--For those who live tofish -- or fish to live--
along the Southeastern coast from the Outer Banks of North
Carolina to Alabama, climate scientists from Florida State
University and the University of Georgia have recently unveiled a
unique online source for all manner of regional data on weather
and fishing conditions: COASTALCLIMATE.ORG.
According to James O'Brien, FSU's Robert 0. Lawton
Distinguished Professor of Meteorology and Oceanography and
the new Web site's co-developer, COASTALCLIMATE.ORG
shares onshore climate data such as temperatures, rainfall and
winds for each month and each phase of El Nino/La Nina, while
offshore data includes water and ocean bottom temperatures and
buoy-generated wind readings.
Anglers can access extensive data on the region's various fish
types -- plus a handy tide generator for every harbor along. the
Southeast coast.
"By specifying the time and place for which tidal information
is needed, a 48-hour tide chart is displayed for any past, present or
future period," said O'Brien, who also directs FSU's Center for
Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction-Studies (COAPS).
Visitors to COASTALCLIMATE.ORG also will find detailed
histories of hurricane tracks and occurrence statistics for each.

Funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA), O'Brien co-led the Web site's yearlong
development with UGA Assistant Professor David Stooksbury.

Bears Dominate Tigers In 44-7


Win At Home


By John Kelley
The Dixie County Bears
took on the Jefferson Tigers
last Friday night at Boyette
Stadium, in what appeared to
be a scrimmage for the Bears
ending in a 44 to 7 win. The
Bears came out ready to play
and play they did as.the Tigers
were whipped from one end of
the field to the other. Coach
Wilkerson was proud of the
team even though he stated
that "it wasn't a good teamh that
we played." He went on to say
that "the Bears are a run
oriented team, that plays
physical ball and we are going
to keep doing it that way
because that's what we do
well".
Statistically the Bears
dominated the Tigers with 245
yards rushing compared to the
Tigers 33 yards. Dixie County
showing that they are a run
oriented team, the Bears
attempted two passes but only
connected with one. On the
other hand the Tigers took to
the air 15 times and completed
.7.j The Bears handled the ball
much better this game showing
no fumbles and only 4
penalties for a total of 45
yards.
The Bears did well on
turnovers with A.J. Land
picking off two Tiger passes.
Earl Aikens showed his special
team talent and scooped up a
fumble on a kick off that set up
the Bears for a score late in the
second quarter.
In another second quarter
play with the Tigers in
possession, the ball was hiked
over the Quarterback's head.
Chaires, Lamar, Evans and
Skelly chased the QB into the
end zone for a safety. The net
result was two points to DCH
making the score 16-0 at that
point.
Scoring for the Bears were
Yarell 6 points, Scott 12
points, Skelly 8 points (safety
and TD) VanAemam 6 points,
and Gencarelli 6 points. Micah
Cassidy. sent six game balls
into Belly Deep creek for six
extra points. The Tigers scored
late in the fourth with their
only touchdown.
Wilkerson speaking in the
post game huddle praised the
team for the effort that they put
forth in the game. He told them
"we got better, we seized the'
opportunity, we have showed
everyone that we can win
games. We still need to get
better every week, next week
is Williston and they have a
good team. This is pride
gentlemen, we have beaten
them for the last five years and

Golden Bears Corral Longhorns f
By John Kelley ;
The Golden Bears played an awesome game Saturday;
when they beat the Trenton Longhorns 19-0. The Longhorns,
were dominated by both the offense and defense of the Golden,
Bears. The Golden Bears scored on the first drive' with
Dawson handing off to Mitchem who leapt into the end zone.'
Dawson added the extra point. Kiandre Hope and the Bear'
defensive line pushed the Longhorn offense for negative
yardage during the first half. '''
Dawson scored again in the second quarter with a 60 plus
yard run. James Horsley provided the defensive drive to hold'-
the Longhorns scoreless into the half. :,
In second half play Mitchem scored on a 15 yard end'
around run putting the Bears up by 19. A spectacular 60 yard,
sprint by Half-pint Jamal Chapman proved that size does not
matter out on the field where the big dogs play.
The Golden Bears are now 2 and 0 looking towards the
playoffs. Everyone should come out and watch these talented
players. Go Bears! We Believe!

Sweat Equity
Dr. Cade thought he was on to something and it wasn't going
to take him very long to find the answer. The good doctor was
doing a study of heat exhaustion on the human body. He knew
that if he could find a solution to heat exhaustion, it would be a
real boon to so many. Especially those athletes and weekend
warriors who live and play in the southern regions of our country
and have to contend with the severe heat and long summers.
But not just those folks in the south. No. Long distance
runners, for example, who have to keep up a pretty terrific pace
for miles. Or bicycle racers, such as the great Lance Armstrong,
who not only has to race 100 miles a day, he has to do it for 21
days in a row, in order to win the Tour d' France, which he has
several times now. Or how about tennis players who seem to
spend time standing at one end of the court, then suddenly have
to dash to meet a ball with numerous quick stops and starts. And
mountain climbers, baseball players, joggers, soccer players.
Well, if it's a physical sport, then I guess there is a good chance
of exhaustion. And that's what Dr. Cade was working on.
He had been doing all the good research that one does on
something like this. All those things that were prudent and that
he learned to do in school. He read up on all the research that
had gone on before him. He watched and timed athletes during
practice and games. He tried to make a correlation between
fitness of a given athlete and time to recovery. Charts, graphs,
mounds of data, and it all seemed to be a rehash of the same
thing he had been reading in other scientist's previous works.
But that didn't help.
Dr. Cade knew that if he could find a way for athletes to
recover quicker, then not only could they play better and longer,
but their bodies would be in less, danger from the possible
devastating effects of exhaustion. He even thought of adding
pure oxygen to the athlete to see if that speeded recovery. But it's
[ when he was watching a group of football players that he
couldn't help but notice the obvious: They were sweating a very
normal and everyday occurrence, especially for football players.
But it was the sweat! Maybe, he thought, that would be a clue.
So, he gathered up a bunch of sweat from the players and
analyzed it. What surprised him is that the chemical makeup of
the sweat was so identical in all of the players.
Well, it didn't take very long to come up with a solution. As
a matter of fact, according to Dr. Cade, it took exactly three
minutes once he had analyzed the football players' sweat. He had
it. He came up with something that, well, today we know as one
of the biggest selling products in the world. It's a Little Known
Fact that Dr. R. Cade came up with Gatorade after only three
minutes of analyzing football players' sweat. And how did he
come up with that silly name, Gatorade? Well, he made the
formula in order to aid his favorite team: the University of
Florida. The Gators, of course.

National Dog Week -- September 18-24. A celebration is to
bring attention to man's best friend and to educate all dog owners.
Part of man's education is to know the top dog breeds to help men
attract women According to pet columnist Dr. Jeff Nichol
(Albuquerque Journal):
Mini pincher -- chicks love mini versions of big dogs.
They are little so they don't cost a lot to feed, and they look really
tough especially with a studded collar.
Beagle -- Charlie Brown was the sensitive underdog. You
too can be the sensitive guy with a Beagle.
Dalmatian -- any dog who hangs out with firemen is a
sure bet with the ladies. This dog is a born hero.
English Pointer -- Cute enough for a lady to swoon over;
- tough enough so you won't look like a wimp.
Dachshund -- This little guy is a wonder with the ladies.
They are cute and are begging to be cared for.
Greyhound -- Sleek and aerodynamic plus many
Greyhounds need rescuing so you'll score some serious points with
the ladies. So, cook some linguini and introduce her to Vincenzo
the Italian Greyhound.
Golden Retriever -- Goldens are easy to train and strong,
but their most outstanding trait is character. They are outgoing and
devoted companions to all sorts of people, happy and trusting. But
they can also be protective. Every woman's dream.
Labrador Retriever -- Labs are playful, loving to people
and hardworking. Put a bandanna on him and he's an instant chick
magnet. The Lab can be counted on as a true friend anytime,
anyplace.
Border Collie -- These dogs are brilliant, you can train
55 them to do anything from catching Frisbees to delivering roses to
lovely ladies on the street. They are clean, cute and wonderful
herders. They are not too big to scare the lady off and their soft
coat is irresistible to the touch. A woman just has to pet this dog.
* Mutt -- Most mutts are found as strays, rescued from
shelters. The Mutt is a natural conversation starter. "What kind of
dog is that?" is the usual question the proud owner may hear. A
guy with a mutt shows the world that substance matters. His dog
may not have the cachet and price tag of a pure breed but, like a
rare priceless work of art, the mutt owner knows the dog is unique
b and one of a kind.
National Singles Week -- September 18-24. Most single people
in the U.S. are not happy about their solitary state. According to an
annual Yahoo! Singles poll, only 38 percent of single women and
31 percent of single men are happy to be alone.
Nearly 80 percent of singles are seriously looking for someone.
42 percent agree that the most attractive quality in a date
is a sense of humor.
25 percent of men say intelligence is the second most
attractive quality in a date.
a 27 percent of women are attracted to good manners and
chivalry, after a sense of humor.

Seaman Brittain Makes Scheduled
Deployment To Australia
September 16, 2005(FHTNC)--Navy Seaman Michael R.
Brittain, grandson of Myrtle Chesson of Branford, Fla., made a
port visit to Darwin, Australia during a scheduled deployment
while assigned to the guided-missile cruiser USS Chosin,
homeported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Brittain, along with the Sailors and Marines of Expeditionary
Strike Group One (ESG), had the opportunity to attend a ceremony
at Darwin's Cenotaph War Memorial for a commemoration of the
60th anniversary of the allied victory in the Pacific during World
War II.
Service members also had the opportunity to go on tours and
watch wildlife that can only be seen in Australia.
Brittain is one of more than 5, 500 Sailors and Marines as part
of ESG 1 who deployed in support of the Global War on
Terrorism. USS Chosin is an Aegis equipped cruiser able to
engage in offensive actions against the enemy through employment
of long-range anti-shipping missiles, land attack missiles and naval
gunfire. :
Brittain is a 2001 graduate of Branford High School of
Branford, Fla. and joined the Navy in November 2002.

Legionnaires, Families, Friends:
Legion Appalled by ruling: "Pledge of Allegiance -is
Unconstitutional" The National American Legion's stand on the judges
ruling. Indianapolis, September 14, 2005 Disgusted by today's ruling by
a federal judge in San Francisco that the Pledge of Allegiance, is
unconstitutional, the leader of the nation's largest veterans organization
pledged a total unequivocal commitment by America's 2.7 million`
Legionnaires to "fight with all of our legal and legislative might to protect
the right of school children to recite the Pledge of Allegiance." '.
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled, "The pledge's referenceto
one nation 'under GOD' violates school children's right to be free froma
coercive requirement to affirm GOD.
"I am disgusted by this ludicrous attack on the traditional values of tlie
citizens of this country," said Thomas L. Brock, national commanderof
The American Legion. "I'm sure the vast majority of Americans feel
exactly the same way. The words 'under GOD' are a tribute to America!s
constitutionally protected religious freedom. There is nothing wrong with
school children acknowledging the fact that the founders of our republic
openly stated in their writings, before we even had the Pledge, that tle
United States is indeed 'one nation under GOD."
"What is really at stake here is the moral direction of our nation the
right of a free people to recognize that there is a Creator referenced in the
Declaration of Independence," Brock said. "The American Legion will
never back down. The right of our children to recite the Pledge of
Allegiance deserves full protection. We will do everything in our power
to see that right is restored permanently."
"I am confident that the Supreme Court will uphold our Pledge of
Allegiance consistent with the desires of WE THE PEOPLE." Brock said.
The motto to The American Legion is "For GOD and country."
I-was prepared to start on a series of the 4 principles of The American,
Legion, but more important business has arisen that needs our attention.
Next week we will comment on our position of the ACLU and the eroding
of the American way of life.
We have an important Executive Committee meeting tonight at 7 PM.
All members are welcome. We will be discussing the future of post 91's
activities and fundraisers.
Disaster-affected legionnaires are offered fast assistance thru the
legion's National Emergency Fund. Also active, guard and reserve legion
members may also qualify for immediate grants from the fund. If you fall
I into these categories, please call Dean Williams for further information.
I. am appalled at all these assaults on our way of life. If it's not foe
terrorists from other countries, it's from our own system fighting against
us.. It is time for the American people to say 'ENOUGH' and put this
nation back on the track our founding fathers set forth for us.
Remember all our troops, all over the world. Please give an exta
prayer for there safe return. Membership is our key to success. Please
send your dues in and all eligible veterans that are not members contact
Dean Williams for more information.

JERRY ORENCHEK,
SUWANNEE RESIDENT
Mr. Orenchek came before the
Board regarding dumping across from
his Suwannee property in the canal.
The DEP has been contacted. Thb
individuals, have been contacted and
part of it has been cleaned up. My
concern is what they have left in the
creek. Photos were presented to .the
Board .


Commissioner Hays stated that the
responsible persons have been notified
by the County to remove the debris. If
they don't the DEP, Army Corps
Engineer, and Suwannee River Water
Management District can be contacted.
Mr. Orenchek said they moved it
off the right of way, but it continues to
fall into the canal.
Ms. Gayle Lovelace joined Mr.
Orenchek in the conversation and
stated that an individual that wishes to
remain anonymous told her that they
couldn't get by in low tide because of
the debris in the canal. Also,
contaminated soil from Miller's has
been dumped across the street and at
the north end of Suwannee at a future
RV site.
Commissioner Hays and Arthur
Bellot will check into this matter.
ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR
Arthur Bellot came before the
Board. He distributed the Suwannee
Water and Sewer Report for August
2005 he received by fax today. The
SWSD had a meeting tonight.
Mr. Bellot informed the Board of a
State Division of Forestry Meeting to
be held in Gainesville 9AM 12PM on
August 241h. Also, a Boating
Workshop will be held in Live Oak on
September 8th at 6:30PM.
Craig Mikell, Blue Cross Blue
Shield, submitted a quote for the 2005-
2006 FY for county employees and has
guaranteed not to exceed 5%. Mr.
Bellot recommended staying with
BC/BS because of the drug card. To
change would mean more co-pay for
employees.
The Board agreed to stay with
Blue Cross Blue Shield as
recommended by Arthur Bellot.
Arthur stated he needed direction
on a request he recently received from
Richard Roesler, Department of
Corrections. Mr. Roesler is requesting
additional space for the Probation
Office and would like to renegotiate
the lease with the BCC for a bigger
facility. We have looked at the EMS
building on Chavous Street. Chad
Reed said it would be 1 V2 to 2 years
before it would be available. An
addition to the existing facility they
now reside in would only be a
temporary solution. Whatever you do,
it will continue to be the county's
property and if they need more space in
the future someone else will want to
use it.
This was discussed and Arthur
will contact Mr. Roesler to discuss
options..
Arthur informed the Board that the
Sheriff has discussed budget options
and is willing to work with the Board
to reduce their request. The Sheriff has
inquired if the Board would be
interested in taking the dog catcher
position as a county employee.
The Board was all in favor of
leaving the dog catcher with the Sheriff
Department.
DAVID OSTEEN, HORSESHOE
BEACH
Mr. Osteen discussed an artificial
reef joint project with Taylor County.
Tallahassee is excited about it and is
coming to look at it so we will be ready
for permitting next year.
.'A drawing and an aerial photo
;were .presented to the Board by Mr.
Osteen concerning the clam shack and
boat ramp in Horseshoe Beach. The
clam shack needs to be removed from
the dock. A fishing pier and dock is
very much needed now that the Marina
has been sold. It will be torn down for
condominiums to be built.
The Board expressed appreciation
and Mr. Osteen stated he will continue
to work on these projects.
Arthur Bellot thanked David for
tying off the cables at Horseshoe on the
damaged dock.
JOEY LANDER, COUNTY
ATTORNEY
County Attorney Lander discussed
an issue that Commissioner Land asked
him to look into regarding property
fencing to prevent hunting dogs from
coming onto private property.
Commissioner Land wants a county
ordinance requiring private property
owners to fence their own land. Mr.
Lander stated FWC said go ahead as
long as the ordinance deals with civil
issues indicating trespass and the end
result doesn't undo their permitting
issue.
Commissioner Land stated we
need to look ahead and if residents
don't want dogs on their property they
need to fence it.
Commissioner Hays commented
we do not need to create a situation
that will cause more problems than it
corrects. As I see it, this would be the
same as requiring homeowners that
complain about loud stereos, boom
boxes, etc... to put'l2" installation in
the walls of their homes.
Attorney Lander concurred and
stated that the Board could challenge
the FWC law.
Commissioner Valentine
commented that the problem is 25
acres in the middle of a hunting club.
Terri Langford, Old Town
resident, stated that she strongly
disagrees with this suggestion of

OTES Cub Calendar News


Small helping hands at Old Town Elementary make a difference for the Victims of Hurricane "Katrina". By
the dedicated efforts of students, parents and staff in one week they donated $2,423.00 school-wide to the Red
Cross. Our goal is to teach students to understand and respond to the needs of others. A tremendous thanks
goes out to the students, parents and staff for "job well done". Our 5th grade pictured above won the prize-
for most money collected "a cotton candy party".
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:


Superintendent
Dennis W. Bennett


HUNTING SEASON
WEAPONS & SCHOOL
CAMPUSES
We are a community that has a long and rich culture of enjoying
the opportunity of hunting on our local lands. Hunting is a way of
life in our rural county, but it 'means much more than harvesting
animals. Hunting season is a time when families enjoy camping,
cooking and the outdoor life. It is a time to teach our youth how to
enjoy the outdoors safely and conserve our natural resources. It's a
time for us as adults to share quality time with our family and


friends.
We have seen many changes in land use, hunting clubs and society in general over the past ten
years. We have seen tragedies in schools, like Columbine and Red Rock where innocent lives were
taken. These situations'along with the public outcry have demanded that public schools put in place
safety rules and regulations to keep weapons off school campuses. Our school campuses are gun and
drug free zones and to violate this is punishable by law. As parents we demand that school officials
are vigilant to enforce these laws to be sure that children are provided a safe environment.
With hunting season starting soon, we want to remind parents and students about the responsibility
of owning and using a firearm. We want to teach our young people the proper way to safely use
firearms and to remove them from vehicles after you return from a hunting trip. Guns left in vehicles
can be stolen. When you drive on school campuses without removing a weapon from your vehicle,
you are violating the law. To own or use a gun carries with it the responsibility to use it safely and
remove it from the vehicle before you enter school campuses.
We will be notifying students and putting signs up as students drive on our campuses reminding
them that hunting season is no excuse to have weapons in vehicles parked on our campuses.
The School Board and Superintendent ask that parents please take the time to instruct their young
hunters of the responsibility to remove weapons from vehicles after the hunt. We must remember that
safety is first and foremost and there are no excuses. ,
We wish you a safe and productive hunting season.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, September 15th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Everyone was busy with so much quilting
going on. B. J. is working on a cat quilt. It's going to be a one of a
kind and only B. J. can come up with ideas she is using. Peggy
Williams is cutting our Dresden Plate pieces and making them will
be lots of fun. Joyce Hamilton has finished a baby quilt for a gift
and so many times when little ones are given a quilt, they hang on
to them for a long time.
Nick Turner and ten boys were out Tuesday and they painted,
mowed, watered and cleaned flowerbeds and got us looking so
great., We were honored to have Lt. Charlie Sphigler from
Lancaster to come out and visi.t. We are always happy to tell them
how much Lancaster and the many boys have done for us.
What a great surprise to have Hildreth Johnson make us, oh so
good biscuits. She knows how we all love them and we all enjoyed
Them. hot, out of the oven. Thank you Hildreth, you can do that
any time.
We are getting our dates together for the Quilt Show and the
bus tour. We will be going to the fair in February but more about
that later. There is much to do before then.
Lunch was great with chicken soup, hot dogs, sweet potato
casserole, potato salad, broccoli casserole, red cake, cookies,
persimmons and so much more. 15 were present.

trying to stay cool, so they did what the animals do in the wild...wallered in the mud.
