FWC Recovers Body
Of Missing Boater
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The body of a missing Taylor County man was found Saturday, October 8th by a private fishing
boat around 3:00 pm. The man was one of two fishermen reported missing for almost a week and
identified as Lonnie Ray Goff, 54, of Perry, Florida.
Goff and fishing partner, Jimmy White, 67, also of Perry, left out around 10:00 am on Sunday,
October 2nd from Peterson Landing on the Fenholloway River., Goff's wife reported the two
missing later that evening when they failed to come home.
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), U.S. Coast Guard, Taylor County
Sheriffs Office and Keaton Beach Marina personnel began an extensive search of the area even
though bad weather coming in off the east coast began to effect the weather. At times six to eight
feet seas were report.
It wasn't until a commercial fisherman found the bow of Goff's 15 foot boat on Thursday, the.
6th of October that the search resumed by the FWC. Later that day Goff's body was found in the
Gulf near the mouth of the Fenholloway River.
As of press time, there was still no sign of White.
Two Killed In Separate
Accidents On US 19
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
I Y s The first Board of County
Commissioners meeting for the
month of October was held last
f fThursday, October 6th in the
SI-Commission Meeting Room.
SOnce again the
P Commissioners went into the
S6 Board of Adjustments and held
', ,, the final hearing on five pieces
sof property which the owners
had applied for rezoning. The
first parcel, owned by Jerald
Hinz, is located off SR 349 and was rejected due to the fact that
Commissioner Lamb and the Building & Zoning had letters and
calls of opposition. The fact that Hinz has the property up for sale
was also a concern of the Commissioners.
The next three parcels are adjoining lots (total of 7) in
Suwannee with SR 349 frontage; all requested rezoning from
Residential to Commercial Neighborhood. Owned by three
different residents, Joseph Birchfield, Sonja Reed and Phillip
Vinson, their plans are to have several small businesses, one being
a con\ enience store.
Debora Alcorn-Howerter, Suwannee resident, opposed the
change stating that she had not seen a posted sign concerning the
request for change. Billy Keen, Zoning Official, assured the
Commissioners that there had been signs posted. With only one in
opposition, the rezoning was approved.
The final piece of property, owned by Richard Perry, is located
on SR 349, just past Gator Gas. Perry will be constructing
personal storage units and an office and stated they will not have
any outside storage. With no opposition, the Commissioners
approved the request.
Chad Reed, Emergency Services Director,. presented the
Commission with an annual report which noted that a total of
3,268 patients were handled, traveling 194,619 miles, and using
25,999.07 gallons of fuel and a total of 441 non-transported
patients were seen.
Reed also spoke to the Commissioners concerning a state
mandate that has .come down regarding the certification of
volunteer fire fighters. In order to adhere to this new mandate the
Commissioners agreed to have one of our existing firefighters be
moved up to a paid position.- He will be in charge of all the
departments and all certifications that.will need to be passed by
anyone wishing to serve on the volunteer department teams.
Jack Spivey, Building Official presented his monthly report. In
September, Dixie County Building and Zoning collected a total of
$34,136.92 in fees, bringing the year to date total to $358,005.15.
In other news, County Coordinator Arthur Bellot brought great
news concerning funding that has been earmarked for several
roadways in Dixie County in 2007. Roads that will be re-surfaced
(some widened as well) are CR 353, CR 358 Loop (Old US 19 to
US 19 Jena), and CR 358 Jena Road. Total dollars to fund the
projects are 4.44 million.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday, October 20th at
6:00 PM in the County Commission Room.

The commercial fishery for
shallow-water grouper in state
waters in the Gulf of Mexico
closed at 12:01 a.m., local
time, Oct. 10 until 12:01 a.m.,
local time, Jan. 1, to coincide
with a federal closure. The
shallow-water grouper species
affected by this closure include
red, black, gag, yellowfin,
scamp, yellowmouth, rock
hind and red hind.
When. either the
commercial red grouper quota
(5.31 million pounds, gutted
weight) or the shallow-water
grouper quota (8.80
million pounds, gutted weight)
is reached, the National Marine
Fisheries Service is required to
close the entire commercial
shallow-water grouper harvest
in Gulf federal waters.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
(FWC) rules automatically
close the commercial harvest
of these grouper species in
state waters when adjacent
federal waters are closed to
such harvest. In this case,
officials expect fishers to reach
the annual commercial red
grouper quota Oct. 10. Last
year, the commercial fishery
for shallow-water grouper in
Gulf of Mexico waters
closed on Nov. 15.
A closure of the
grouper fishery in both- state
and federal Gulf waters has
also been in effect since
June 23. Deep-water grouper
species include misty grouper,
snowy grouper, yellowedge
grouper, Warsaw grouper and
speckled hind. This fishery
will also reopen on Jan. 1.
These closures are part of
rebuilding plans for Gulf

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Amy N. Sanderlin, 19 of Old Town, Florida
was fatally injured last Friday, October, 7th,
2005 when the vehicle she was riding in
overturned on US 19 and ended in the Century
According to a Florida Highway Patrol press
release, Rosanna C. Horsley, 21, also of Old
Town, was the driver of the 2000 Ford Explorer
and was traveling north in the outside lane at a
high rate of speed when the accident occurred.
As Horsley approached a slower moving vehicle
she swerved left in order to avoid hitting the
other vehicle and lost control. Horsley tried
several times to regain control of the SUV but
the vehicle rotated into a soft shoulder area
causing it to overturn several times before
stopping on its roof in the driveway of the
Century 21 building.
Horsley, Sanderlin and two other passengers,
Tia L. Corbin, 22 and Jennie M. Knight, 24,
.both of Cross City were all thrown from the
vehicle. Horsley, Corbin and Knight were all
transported to Shands UF by Dixie EMS and
listed in critical condition. Sanderlin was-
pronounced deceased at the scene by Dixie
The report noted that no one was wearing
their seatbelts. Results from a blood alcohol test
taken on Horsley are pending. Charges are also
pending further investigation by the FHP.
At 3:15 AM this past Tuesday, October 11,
2005 emergency. crews were called to an
accident 4 miles north of CR 358 on US 19
which resulted in the death of the driver..
According to a press release ftor FlIP
Investigator Corporal G.D. Potter, ttjie[hdriyer
was traveling south on US 19 in the right lane
and for some unknown reason ran off-tthe road
onto the west shoulder. While trying- to steer
back onto the roadway, he overcorrected-and
eventually ended in the left turn lane: of the
northbound lane. The 1996 Volvo: tractor
trailer then began to overturn, coming to rest on
its roof, blocking the inside lanes of the north
and southbound lanes.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene
by Dixie Paramedic Ryan Fulford.
The driver's name was withheld until next of
kin could be notified, however it was noted that
he was from Marlow, Oklahoma.
This is the third fatality this year at that
U.S. Senate Panel Weighs Threat of
Oil, Gas Drilling Near Florida To
Military Air, Sea Training
The powerful heads of the Senate Armed Services Committee recently agreed to seek Pentagon
input on the possibility that new oil rigs off Florida's coast might hamper military testing and
training. And the nominees to head the Navy and Air Force both pledged immediate reviews.

training with new rigs wanted by the oil industry. economy both the
Air Force and Navy
use the expansive and open waters of the eastern Gulf for critical air and sea testing and training.
The area became even more important to military training in recent months, when the Navy was
forced to abandon exercises off Vieques Island, Puerto Rico; and, relocated some of its operations to
facilities in Florida's Panhandle.
Levin, the Democratic head on the Armed Services Committee, suggested the panel make an
inquiry of top Pentagon officials to determine whether they understand "that there's this possibility
afoot" to allow oil rigs in current military testing and training areas. And Warner agreed to provide
the Pentagon with a transcript of today's hearing.
The protection of Florida's coastline and vast military air and sea ranges in the eastern Gulf have
been top priorities for Nelson, a Democrat; and, new drilling staunchly is opposed, by the state's
other U.S. senator, Mel Martinez, a Republican.
Nelson's highlighting the military threat from drilling raises the stakes for\pro-drilling interests.
"This is one of the greatest training areas in the United States," Nelson told the Armed Services
Committee Thursday, as it was meeting to consider the nominations of Michael Wynne to be
secretary.of the Air Force and Dr. Donald Winter to be secretary of the Navy.
"The Air Force owns this range; the Navy uses it," Nelson told Wynne and Winter and the
Senate panel. "You better get moving or else you're going to lose it . You're going to find
you're going to have oil rigs all over this place."
Both nominees pledged quick and thorough reviews. Pressure has increased in just the last few
days alone for putting oil and gas rigs closer to Florida, with news reports revealing the governor
and a few Republican members of Congress now are negotiating a deal that would open the eastern
Gulf to new drilling.

'Are we really running out of hurricane names?
The title of this dissertation poses a question, to which the
F answer is a most emphatic No! But don't simply assume that, just
because you now know the answer, you know why we are not (or
at least should not be) running out of hurricane names.
It has come to my attention that the hurricane which is causing
the most recent problems, though not of catastrophic proportions,
is named "Vince," and that the only remaining name is "Wilma."
After that, we're supposed to start all over with alpha, followed by
the rest of the Greek alphabet.
This brings several questions to mind. First of all, why do only
21 of the 26 letters in our alphabet get used? The letters Q, U, X,
Y and Z have been arbitrarily removed from consideration, owing
to whatever mystical authority makes this irrational ruling.
Obviously, there are both men and women, with names
beginning with Q, U, X, Y and Z. But don't take my word for it,
consider such names as Quentin, Quiana, Ulyses, Ursula, Xavier,
Xeina, Young, Yvonne, Zachery and Zelda. At least some of
( these are actually quite common, and those that are not turn up
late in the season or not at all; and in any case, there are
alternates for each letter, so there's no reason why we have to
resort to non-gender-specific designations from a foreign language
,.in order to accommodate an uncommonly busy hurricane season.
And even if we did exhaust all 26 letters in the English alpha-
bet, what's wrong with starting over? Let's say Zack showed up in
early November, so we had to go back to A. The season's first
3 storm was Allison, so the 27th gets named Arlene. What's wrong
: Another way to go would be to stop naming these meteoro-
Slogical phenomena when they reach tropical storm status. Wait
: until they get to be hurricanes, because some of them never make
it, and that would leave more names available for the ones that hit
74 mph. They first get noticed when they're tropical depressions,
'at which time they're numbered. Let them be identified as tropical
storms when they make it to 35mph, but keep these numbers until
such time as they attain hurricane status. That way, we'd be less
likely to run out of alphabet before the end of November.
S.. Whereas I couldn't tell you exactly why, we didn't seem to
have this problem when all hurricanes were named after women.
: This time-honored practice was abandoned in 1979 in deference
to one of the innumerable demands being made by feminist
groups. And while I realize that then-President Jimmy Carter was
in the White House, I am not at all sure that this was his decision.
Rosalyn's, perhaps. (By the way, has there ever been a hurricane
Named after her?)
I might mention (though perhaps I shouldn't) that a few guys
I've talked to agreed that hurricanes should all still be named after
women. One fellow went so far as to give as his reasons that
' hurricanes, like women, were, "...violent, expensive, did a lot of
damage before leaving in a hurry, and left you with a big mess to
clean up. Sort of like Mother Nature's version of alimony."
Naturally, I admonished this fellow that it wasn't at all nice to
talk that way about Mother Nature.

Will our County lose a gem? In this case the gem is in the form
of a book. A very popular library program, Books-by-Mail, seems
to be endangered. The service is a boon to anyone who has
difficulty visiting a traditional library. The program provides a
large selection of books mailed directly to the home, and includes a
return envelope for mailing them back. The postage both ways is
provided. The sponsor is the Three Rivers Regional Library
System and covers all residents of Dixie, Gilchrist and Lafayette
Although nothing can replace the traditional library, there are
many folks who just can't get to it. For example: the home bound,
the non driver, those who live many miles away, pre-school
children and those who work odd hours on their jobs. For these
people the mailman does the work.
The program issues a catalog listing over 750 titles from which
to choose, and is conveniently divided by category. Patrons can
select from biographies, westerns, mysteries, sci-fi and others.
There is also an extensive collection of good children's books. A
great treat for those with vision problems is the collection of books
in large print.
Since it's inception in 1997 the program has grown, both in the
number of patrons served and the number of titles available. It
would be a pity to see the program fall by the wayside. So, if you
should happen to be speaking with your County Commissioner or
librarian, voice your support for such a benevolent program called
Books-by-Mail and keep it going. And don't forget, you personally
are eligible to participate. Call (386). 294-3858 or toll free 1-800-

It's 3 AM, September 30, 2005, and 7 hours after I attended the
SRWMD meeting at the Usher Center for the establishment of
Minimum Flow Levels for the river and springs. Why would I be
awakened at 3 AM by a dream of the same men that gave the
presentation last night, but are now standing at the Fanning Springs
State Park watching the water barely flow out to the river saying
"we must not have had enough data to properly forecast the low
water tables in Georgia?"
I realized that my answer to this might come from some wrong
conclusions I had made in the mid 1990's while dreaming of a
move to the area after retirement.
1.) Could a possible wrong conclusion have been that our
water officials had stable environmental ethics toward the river and
2.) Could I have erred in the checking I had done on the
water laws which I thought said that no water transfers would
happen unless methods of water conservation and production
including desalination were initiated?
Could these conclusions or maybe hearing of the story of
people wading across the Suwannee River in 1937 produce the
dream, or could it be a deep gut feeling that someone somewhere
outside our county is about to make a very wrong decision about

Letter To The Editor
By now, all property owners in Dixie County have received
their proposed tax assessment for. this year, and on September 20,
2005, anyone with a grievance or question was invited to attend a
special meeting held at the County Courthouse to voice their
comments and concerns over the proposed tax increase.
One fairly immediate problem voiced was NOT ONE
representative from the tax assessor's office attended this special
meeting, rather, our 5 County Commissioners, County Manager,
and Clerk of Court, both with representation. With all due respect,
Mr. Hal Chewning Jr., was not in attendance due to a family matter
of a serious nature. That understood, concerns were voiced to the
Commissioners. While these elected officials have done one heck
of a job in their respective positions and districts, they were not
able to answer many concerned questions from. a filled to capacity
(standing room only) meeting room.
Many property owners from the little coastal community of
Suwannee attended this meeting. They seemed well represented. It
appears that coastal property owners may be about to carry the
burden of the proposed county budget tax increase, because
property sales have been going through the roof and the value of
property has gone up up up. These quick deal real estate sales
constitute a recent trend happening county wide, and state wide.
Florida is booming it seems. Several of our elected County
Officials have even joined the ranks of professional real estate,
developing land and selling property.
It takes money to make money as they say.
Why then should a small percentage of property owners in
Dixie County, specifically those along the coast have to potentially
carry the burden for the rest?
Just because property values have soared to an exponential rate,
does not mean that we have much new in the way of services to
show for these sharp increases. Before we put the burden on a few,
can we try to consider recutting the pie, and refocus the
assessments on all properties in our county? What are the
population demographics in each district, who homesteads, who
does not, what kind of zoning applies? Land with acreage has
value too, cows or no cows. Just ask a professional developer or
look around you and see what is happening, and fast too.
There is a great web site that is particularly interesting for those
who want to know how much each property owner in Dixie
County is currently assessed. Go to web address
You can look up anyone's property you want, prompted by
name, address, or the parcel number of a particular property.
WOW! What a highway of information.
In the meantime, there are options that the County
Commissioners, and hopefully, the Property Appraisers office are,
considering as possible solutions to generating additional revenue
for a fast growing community in a place that sometimes seems like
paradise, and once upon a time, didn't have a prominent place on

Like many other children, my three-year-old son did not care
for church and he didn't mind saying so. He hated church almost
as much as he loved his grandmother. So he was delighted to have
her as a babysitter when we went to the Canadian Rockies for a
But there was a downside. She took him to church!
At least.she didn't make him dress up in his little tie and wear
dress shoes. Once at church, he sat very still on her lap until he
piped up in a loud Voice, "YOU KNOW WHY I DON'T LIKE
CHURCH. IT TAKES TOO LONG!"
At the time, we went to a small, church with about 100 in
attendance. Everyone heard his statement, including the minister.
Later, as a grade-schooler, he still didn't care much for church,
but he liked Sunday School.
What he learned in Sunday School was the story of Noah's
Ark. One time, he said "I wished they wouldn't tell the same
stories. I already know about Noah's Ark!" In spite of that, or
.possibly because of it, he and his friend Scott often constructed an
intricate city in the sandbox, working on it all day, only to
demolish it in a big flood with the garden hose.
According to a well-known anonymous essay, those stories of
the great flood he studied in Sunday School probably taught him a
lot. The title .of the essay is "All I Really Need to Know About
Life, I Learned from Noah's Ark."
It's amazing what we can learn from unexpected places if we
1) Don't miss the boat. Keep in mind that you don't have
unlimited time left, especially whenyou're this side of 60.
2) Remember that we are all in the same boat. Other people
have problems, too. So be sensitive. ,
3) Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. Be
proactive about what you want to accomplish today, this week,,
this.year. Set goals and act on them.
4) Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you
to do something really big. Well, maybe not 600! But how about
100 or 80 or 60.
5) Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to
be done. There will always be critics. If you listen, you're sunk.
6) Build your .future on high ground. Don't settle for the
easiest way. Keep climbing up and achieve your dreams.
7) For safety sake, travel in pairs. It's more fun anyway.
8) Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board
with the cheetahs. If you walk slower than you did, remember that
slow and steady wins the race.
9) When you're stressed, float a while. Breathe deeply and
meditate when your blood pressure rises.
10) Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by
^professionals. Trust your own skills. Don't rely on someone else
to authenticate you.
11) No matter the storm, there's always a rainbow waiting.
, When you have to cope with losses and health problems, always
,.look for the rainbow.
As N\ou age, remember to make the most of every minute and
' be like Noah keep fit, plan ahead, don't get "old," have fun, don't
',(give up and always look for the rainbows in life.

Pictured L-R Sondu, John Fracker, and Rita Diles being Baptised. Just
a few weeks ago in the Gypsy village of Tonchu inside their new church
building not yet completed.
Central Baptist Church will be hosting two foreign missionaries
from Villa Techii Romania with their ministry leader Mr. John
Fracker from Cookeville, TN, on Sunday Oct. 16th in their
morning service. All who are mission minded are invited to attend
this service to hear what God is doing in Romania through Hearts
of Faith Ministries.
Hearts of Faith falls under the umbrella of Popular Grove
Baptist Church in Cookeville, TN. John Fracker and his wife
Debbie are selling their home in Cookeville and moving to Bistrita,
Romania to be full time missionaries there. Debbie teaches English
and John is the Founder of Hearts of Faith.
Abby & Sondu the two Gypsy visiting home missionaries from
the village of Villa Techii, which is just 20 miles out of Bistrita,
will be speaking to the congregation.
Central Baptist has been involved in helping Hearts of Faith
and the Bistrita ministry for the past three years. Several from
Central Baptist have been there on mission trips to minister.
Pastor David Downing says, "It is exciting to see how God is
working all over the world. The Romanian people are so open to
the gospel of Christ and hungry to here God's word since their
deliverance from Communistic rule in 1989. They are a poor
people but rich in the love of Christ."
Abby & Sondu will be at 1st Baptist Church Cross City for,
their evening service on the 16th at 7pm. If you are a pastor of a
small church and want to hear their testimonies bring your
congregation for the 7pm service at 1st Baptist. You will be
A love offering will be taken to help support the work of that
ministry. If you cannot- attend either service but would like to
contribute to the building of three new church buildings in three

building, then make your check payable to Central Baptist Church,

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
"Jerusalem Old and New"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say The apostles of
the morning church knew about this transition from the old order to the
re%%.. Stephen _aid. "Hov.ben the mos high J..elleih nrot in temples ruade
'. ith l nds, as ,jirii the prophet
I, ihe Da., of the Lord. -_jy Thi is one of the statements Stephenniade
just before they stoned him to death and may have helped to add to their
anger, for they fully believed that God was dwelling in their Jerusalem
temple. Some always got the light before others, and their persecution
nearly always comes from those who have not yet received the advanced
light, and fell that it is dishonoring to their belief of things.
I, the Day of the Lord, say If those who stoned Stephen had really
understood the scriptures which they were trying to teach to others, they
too would have seen that God's time for change had come. Paul also,
when preaching at Athens and seeing the many temples erected their'gods,
cried out, "The God that made the world and all things therein seeing that
He is Lord of Heaven and Earth, dwelleth not in temples made with
I, the Day of the Lord, say Hear the apostle John speak. That new
Jerusalem which Isaiah had told them seven hundred years before, was
going to be created by God, John sees coming into a reality in his day!
I, the Day of the Lord, say "John saw the holy city new Jerusalem,
coming down from God out of heaven as a bride adorned for her
husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the.
tabernacle of-God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall'
be his people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their.
God"...and He carried me away in the spirit (that is where we all have to'
be to see these things) to a great and high mountain, and showed me that
great city, the Holy Jerusalem defending out of heaven from God... and he
said unto me, These things are faithful and true: and the Lord of the Holy
prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must
shortly be done... and He said unto me, seal not the sayings of ihe
prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand ...Blessed are they that do
his commandments that they may have right to the tree of life, and may
enter in through the gates into the city." John saw this Jerusalem coming.
Abraham was looking for it in his day. Isaiah said it was going to come;
but John saw it coming! Glory be to God. Continued.

The Word Made
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say I have often
been raised up into heaven and
have heard conversation of angels
with new spirit, and once about
the consummation of the age and
the destruction of the world. And
because those new spirit had
hither to know nothing of heaven
and hell nor the life of man after
death, nor of any other sense of
the word than the literal, they gave
responses void of reason and full
of paradoxes. They said that by
the consummation of the age they
understood the destruction of the
world; by the coming of the Lord
then, His appearing with the
angels in a cloud; by the last
judgment, sentences decreeing
salvation and damnation upon all
the dead after their resurrection
from the grave.
I, the son of man, say when
the angels had heard these things
they asked with smiling
countenance two or three times,
whether the spirit said these things
from faith of heart which is
believed to be the truth; or from
historical. faith, which in itself is
tradition from others; or from the
indulgence of the imagination. To
these questions the new quests
replied with indignation, "What
have we said from the indulgence
of the imagination, or from mere
tradition? Are not these things
truths revealed in the word? They
must be of faith of heart." When
these things were said the angels
courteously answered "It does no
harm for you to believe thus, but
that it is not so, you shall hereafter
I, the son of man, say
immediately after this was said
little flames appearing like
tongues flowed down from heaven
upon the heads of the newcomers,
by which they were inspired with
the affection of knowing from
reason how they had faith, and
they exclaimed, "What is faith but
truth? Where is truth in its own
light except in the understanding?
If the understanding be in thick
darkness, what then is faith but a
somnambulist? And if to this faith
be added confirmation from
natural light separate from
spiritual light, it became a bat."
Among the newcomers was a
minister, who, when he. heard
these things from his associates,
said with an inflamed voice,
"What has faith to do with the
understanding?" The angel
5 -replied, "What is faith without the
understanding but a blind faith?"
I, the son of man, say after this
the angels asked the novitiates
what: further they had thought
S from their faith, concerning the
confirmation of the age, and. what
they still thought. They replied,
"We had thought of the
destruction to the universe, both
heaven and earth; since we read
that heaven and earth should be
destroyed, and it was said that
they should pass away." The
,: angels then inquired, "What
" heaven and what earth; the heaven
'" and earth of the natural world or
of the heavens where the angels
are and lands -upon which they
dwell." At this tle novitiates
responded, "What is this? Perhaps
you joking? Are not angels spirit?
What is a spirit but a breath of
* wind? And where is this breath?
Does it- not fly about in the
atmospheric heaven, and go even
to the stars?"' .
I, the son of man, say the
: angels then replied, "You are now
in the spiritual world, and as yet
you know no otherwise than that
you are in the natural world. Here
heaven, where the angels are, is
above your, head, and hell, where
Sthe devils and satans are; in under
your feet. Is not the soil, upon
which you and we stand earth?
Stamp it with your feet and
know." Please stay up with me
and know more what the angels
will be saying. Love you,
continued next week.

Abundant Life & Living
Stay in touch: Communication is the key to a lasting, sound,
stable relationship with God, and families. Many of us know that
money and adultery rates very
high, however, research supports
E7% that communication is a must in all
families; if the lines of
communication stay open when
there are rough times,
and mistakes, it is easier to discuss
and resolve them before they
inflate, if we have freely kept the
line of communication open. When
S we bottle things up inside until
they grow so big we explode, then
Lucille Stockton we can't handle it.
Talk about it in its origin, and most times it goes well. The:
same applies to our communicating with God. Many of us wait
until an occurrence in our lives is out of reason or control, then
we try to reach God for answers and solutions, when we haven't
prayed or been in his presence for days, we haven't spent any
quality time, or paused to praise and thank him. We lose our
relationship with God when we cease to communicate. When we
are out of touch, we might need Him quickly and the line ig
busy, we are put on hold, or your I.D. is requested, we can't
reach Him because we failed to stay in touch. Pray while it well
"Love Life And Live It."
great fun and fellowship for the adults. Come out and enjoy! the
Our homecoming will be Sunday morning November 6*t
followed by a covered dish luncheon, then the special music in the
afternoon will be done by Southland Quartet. Our revival will
begin Monday night, November 7th and continue through Thursday
night November 10th. We ask you to be praying for that. Invite
someone to come to the revival with you and let's all make an
extra effort to attend every night. Bro. Jake Cravey will be
preaching our revival and you will truly receive a blessing.
We have started our Christmas shoe boxes for children who are
less fortunate than ourselves and who would not receive a gift at all

Winstead or just about anyone at Faith to see what this is all about

able to give to this worthy cause.
Remember this week to pray for our revival, plan to attend'th6

Registration Deadline For Act Test
College-bound high school students can take the ACT college
admission and placement exam on December 10, 2005, the next
national test date. The deadline for postmark or online registration
'is November 4. The late registration deadline is November 17 (an,
additional $18 fee is required for late registration). Students can
get registration materials from their high school counselor or they
can register online on ACT's student website
(www.actstudent.org). Students can also find the testing location
closest to them on this website.
The ACT is an achievement test that measures what students
have learned in school. The basic ACT exam includes four parts:
S-English, reading, mathematics and science. An optional writing
test is also available. Some colleges require or recommend a
writing score, but many do not. To find out if a writing score is
required by particular colleges, students may visit ACT's website
for a searchable list, or they may check with the colleges directly.
ACT scores are accepted by virtually all colleges across the nation.
Some students perform better on the ACT than on other college
entrance exams because it is based on achievement, not aptitude.
The basic exam takes three hours to complete, plus an additional
30 minutes for those who opt to take the writing test.
The basic registration fee for the ACT is $29. An additional
$14 fee is required for students who choose to take the ACT
Writing Test, bringing the total registration fee to $43 for these'
students. Free sample tests are available from school counselors
and on ACT's website, which also offers additional practice tests
for a minimal fee.

Meyer, he of the clean-cut, All-American boy
image, is no different. He lied all week to the
press about Chris Leak and DeShawn Wynn,
concealing the fact that both were being hurt.
Only after Florida's unspectacular 35-9
thumping of Mississippi State before a
homecoming crowd did he admit they had been
held out of practice.
Hey, it's his prerogative. Trouble is,
how do we tell when he's lying about the other
stuff? What about all preaching about the
virtue of the so-called "spread option" offense
that seems to be locked in limbo at the
Some of his critics might have cut
Meyer a little slack had they known Leak was
nursing a shoulder injury and had been doing
so since last year when he sustained it against
Florida State and then re-hurt it against
Alabama. No wonder he's been so reticent
about running the ball in the spread-option!
When we didn't see Wynn right away,
we just figured he was back in Meyer's well-
attended doghouse. The first three times he
touched the ball, however, the junior tailback
picked up 45 yards and a touchdown. The
Gators needed the boost, because without the
special teams and defense, this win No. 5 for
Meyer would have been even uglier.
Matter of fact, Florida was so banged
out on offense that Meyer probably needed a
flip-chart to identify people like Kyle Morgan,
who made his first start at wide receiver.
This was the day when the so-called
"spread offense" was supposed to be let out of
the jar. After a woeful showing in Tuscaloosa,
Ala., people were looking for signs of
po Meyer even scripted the first dozen
.plays, but that didn't work out because Leak
threw in interception on Florida's, third
offensive snap of the game. For a quarter the
Gators struggled mightily and with less than 80
yards in total offense that produced a 3-3 tie,
this "spread" thing-appeared to be jammed up.
Ah, but good coaches who are smart
guys always have an answer. What Meyer did,
you see, was resort to the "Spread Special
Teams" and the "Spread Defense" to get things
rolling. It worked like this:
Punter Eric Wilbur floats one 56 yards
to the Bulldogs' 1 where Reggie Nelson downs
it. Four plays later safety Jarvis Herring rushes
quarterback Omarr Conner, who
unintentionally but intentionally, according to
officials -- grounded the ball for a safety. Two
points for the "Spread Special Teams."
With good field position from the
safety, the top of the jar was loosened, the real

spread to come out on the offense, with Wynn
rushing 13 yards for the game's first
touchdown, although he, too, had a sore
shoulder and wasn't supposed to play.
What followed was a whole bunch of
spreading the glory around -- another safety,
this one by linebacker, Brandon Siler, once
again set up by a Wilbur punt and Nelson
downing. And then a special team touchdown
by Terrence Holmes, who caught a punt
blocked by Dee Webb for a score.
So we are starting to get this "spread"
thing. It's not just for the offense, you see.

JV Bears Beat
By John Kelley
The JV Bear team ended
its season on a high note as it
beat the PK Young Blue Wave
12-7. What started out in a
mud bog w wrestling match saw
Eric Dix as a, standout
performer as he ran on a
counter trap play for 45 yards.
This set up a score by Jeremy
Adkins making it 6-0. The
Bears forced the Blue Waves to
punt late in the second quarter
which they blocked. Brent
Locke recovered the ball and
scored for Dixie County.
P.K. Yonge tried to
comeback in the third and
scored on a pass making the
score 12-7. By the end of the
fourth quarter the Dixie JV
defense stalls the Blue Wave
drive. On the 3 yard line, first
down and goal to go, the Wave
quarterback fumbled and the
Bears recovered and ended the
game in possession of the ball.

standout players as the JV

"By John Kelley
The Dixie County Bears lost in Hamilton County to the Trojans on Friday night. The final score
was 33-8 as Dixie county slipped one more notch away from a district playoff berth. Coach Brent
Wilkerson told the team that the loss was based on nothing more than missed assignments and
missed tackles, which caused the game to go south for the Bears. He told the team that they were
going to have to make plays and tackles to get better, if they wanted to win more games this season.
The Trojans scored first on their third possession. They held the Bear offense all through the first
and second quarters, forcing the Bears to turn over the ball before the Bears could get any good field
position. Dixie County had only three first downs in the first half. The Trojans continued scoring,
posting 25 points in the first two quarters. The only highlight in the dismal first half for the Bears
came on a fumble recovery by Robert Yarell and also a blocked field goal attempt.
The Bears came out in the second half looking better prepared both defensively and offensively.
Unfortunately the Bears were plagued with penalties. With flag after flag, the prospect of recovering
the game slipped away. The Bears finally scored on a hand-off from Quarterback Gary David Pinner to
Terrance George making the score 26 to 6. Pinner also went to George again on a two-point
conversion to post two more to the Dixie side of the scoreboard.
By the fourth quarter, the rain had emptied the stands and made it difficult for both sides to hold
on to the ball. Dixie County had one more chance to score with a field goal attempt by Micah
Cassidy which was no good. The rain provided a fitting back drop to a hard loss for the Bears.
The next :game finds Dixie County in Perry where they will try and make a comeback. The game
starts at 7:30 P.M. at Dorsett Stadium. Everyone needs to' come and support the Bears as they make
an all out effort to redeem the loss to the Trojans. Until next week, GO BIG RED!

Rebel with a Cause
I guess every part of society has its rebels. We all know about
the rebels who started our country. They didn't like the way things
were, so they went to war to change those things. And of course
there are musicians and artists, who always seem to be challenging
the way things are.
Well, the same seems to hold true for the world of sports, and
in the early 1960s a group of radical sportsmen changed football
forever. They saw that the National Football League was growing
in popularity, and they wanted to join the game. But the men who
owned the teams in the NFL liked things the way they were, and
they told the new guys that there wasn't any room.
That didn't sit too well with this group of successful business
entrepreneurs who were accustomed to getting what they wanted.
So they decided, well, if that league doesn't want us, we'll start our
own league, and we'll call it the American Football League. They
wanted a fellow revolutionary to be their leader, and they found a
guy named Joe Foss to be their first commissioner.
Joe looked around and thought he'd shake things up. He
thought it was a little screwy for a game to have two clocks, one
the head referee kept, with the official time, and another, the
stadium clock,-that everybody could see, keeping unofficial time.
It seems pretty sensible now, but back then it was revolutionary:
There'd be one guy who ran the stadium clock, and that would be
the official time, so the fans would know exactly what was going
Joe also decided that the fans would like to know what was
going on with the players, so he let reporters in the locker rooms as
soon as the game ended. They wouldn't have to wait for an hour to
talk to players, as the NFL was doing. He also decided that fans
deserved to know who was who out there on the playing field, so
he had his league put the players' names on the backs of the
And while the NFL closely limited television coverage to what
happened on the field, Joe figured that the fans at home would
Enjoy seeing other aspects of the game, and he told the television
folks to cover the action on the bench: the squabbles, the pep
talks, the outright arguments.
Now these changes may not seem like much now, but believe
me, at the time they were revolutionary. The owners in the NFL
thought Joe was out to ruin football. They thought Joe was not
only loony, but dangerous, too a radical guy bent on ruining
things. Well, It's a Little Known Fact that "dangerous" Joe Foss
Was actually as square as they come. Joe was a World War II
fighter pilot ace who shot down 26 Japanese zeroes, who won the
Medal of Honor, who served as governor of South Dakota, and
who believed in far-out ideas like patriotism, honor, and service to
r your country. Oh, and he believed in that other crazy idea of
making football better for the farfs.

NATIONAL SCHOOL BUS SAFETY
October 16-22, 2005
Where is the safest place for a student to be? Statistics
T indicate that your child is safer on a school bus than other modes
of transportation. Over one million students are transported back
...... ... and forth to school each day in school buses, with buses traveling
Superintendent of Schools over 282 million miles throughout the year. In the Dixie School
Dennis W. Bennett District we transport 1,448 students daily over 348,831 miles of
roadway each year. We travel over 18,000 miles each year in
field trips alone, which require night driving. We have had no fatalities or serious injuries that
anyone can recall in the history of our school system.
Our drivers are continually being trained and updated on safe operating procedures. Our new
fleet of diesel buses is the most dependable ones on the highway today.
With the price of diesel close to $4.00 a gallon, we have seen a real impact on our budget of
which we did not expect. Our buses consume between 300 and 400 gallons of diesel per day,
doubling the cost for the district to about $1,200.00 per day.
National School Bus Safety Week is October 16-22, 2005, and the theme is "Flashing Red Means
Stop Ahead." Although school buses continue to be the safest vehicles on the road to transport
students, transporters and educators should emphasize the need for motorists to stop when a school
bus has its flashing lights on and stop arms extended. These are the signals that indicate school
children are boarding or departing from the bus, and it is one of the most critical times for the safety
We in the district want to thank and commend our drivers and transportation staff for their
commitment, dedication, and safety record. They are up before daylight driving in all types of
weather as they transport our most precious cargo, our children. Thank you for a job well done!

The Old Town Chicks Red Hats were on the move again. On
September 27, 2005 the fun group went to Alachua to the
Conestogas Restaurant. Let me tell you they really treated us great
and service was great and the food was wonderful. All agreed that
we should do this one again. Everyone looked their best as you can!
see in the picture above, which was taken outside the restaurant.
Princess Point and Shooter got her picture in this time as the
owner of the Conestogas got in the middle of the street and took
our picture while the local police watched from across the street.
All around the restaurant there was great shopping for Red ,Hats
since they just love to plunder, and that we all did.
We are looking forward to our annual Halloween Costume
meeting and judging next month. Check in with me next week and
see where we always go for Hallowen.
Till then..Princess Point and Shooter Elaine Howell.
The only books that influence us are those for which
we are ready, and which have gone a little farther
down our particular path than we have yet g6t our-

The workshop was a program on completing a 6-hour quilt.
Ms. Myers, who has taught many of the Springhouse workshops,
did a great job in instructing the attending ladies how to make the
quilt. The program began at 9:00 AM and by 12:00 Noon the
ladies were able to show the results of their hard work. Ms. Myers
is a superb teacher and has been a leader in helping Springhouse
learn new quilting techniques.
Springhouse will be hosting a quilt show on November 11 and
12 at the Methodist Church in Trenton. Springhouse members
have been very busy completing projects for the show and inviting
other quilters to display their quilts. With approximately 131
entries in the show, the show should be a unique and rewarding
display of what quilters in the area can accomplish.
The public is invited to mark these dates on their calendar and
plan on attending the quilt show.

This week's Dixie Sighting is comes courtesy of Arthur Bellot.
Arthur was traveling down Governor Hill Lake Road one beautiful
summer's day and couldn't help but stop to take a picture of this
field of yellow wildflowers. With this picture, Arthur has proven
that we should all "stop to view the flowers" at times.
While trying to find a parking spot, Arthur found that this turtle
had already taken one space. Arthur knew it would be "slow" to
back out of the primo spot and decided to find another one.
Wonder what business the turtle had?
Well, you Dixie folks really came through on giving us the
scoop on what kind of butterfly was pictured in the October 6"t
issue. Susan Brush of Old Town was the first to call and let us
know that it really isn't a butterfly at all, it's a Luna Moth. She
stated that in their caterpillar state they feed on hardwoods like
hickory, sweet gum and persimmon trees.
Our local Audubon guru, Grif Griffin, called in and confirmed
Susan's findings and added that the Luna Moth is only found in
North American, and unfortunately on the endangered species list.
Thanks Susan, Grif and all the rest of the callers. We loved
hearing from you all!

Horseshoe Beach Cafe
Horseshoe's Best Kept Secret
By Terri Langford Staff Writer .
Driving through Horseshoe Beach on the main street you will _'- -,
see a quaint little cafe located across from the Gulf of Mexico, -- -- -'
appropriately named the Horseshoe Beach Cafe. Through the
years the cafe has weathered more than its share of storms and has
been home to a host of owners and chefs. Its newest owners are
Joe and Ramona Massie who bought the cafe 18 months ago and
plan on staying for the long haul.
The Massie's moved up the coast from Tarpon Springs in order -l
to get away from the crowds and traffic. Ramona, who is a trained
chef, hails from Scotland and met Joe while vacationing in the
United States. In fact Joe met her while she was working at a
restaurant in Tarpon. He fell in love with the Scottish "Lassie" ap_:,2. _- ....
and followed her back to Scotland where he asked her hand in -'-
marriage. They have been married eight years now and still act
like they are on their honeymoon!
Ramona's dream has been to own a small restaurant here in the
states. When she and Joe saw an advertisement in the St. Pete Times about the Horseshoe Caf6 being for sale it sounded just like what
they had been looking for, so they took a trip up to the Big Bend area to see for themselves. They fell in love immediately with the town
and the little caf6. It didn't take them long to fall in love with the people to. Recently Joe and Ramona bought a house in Horseshoe
.-" ; -...... where they plan to spend the rest of their lives.
._ -The Massie's have made the caf6 their own, with fresh paint
inside and out and special touches the restaurant is clean, bright
S .. and inviting; and continues to be a landmark in the small coastal
The restaurant seats 70 and the view across the street of the
Gulf of Mexico is the prefect spot to watch some incredible
sunsets. The food ain't bad either!
.Much of their seafood is bought from local fishermen to ensure

caf6. Every order is cooked when placed, not ahead of time, even

P8--- The menu is a feast in itself, from the southern style fried fish
to more adventuresome items such as Grouper Rockefeller and
smoked salmon and asparagus. Ramona's signature Greek
dressing is a big favorite of the regular patrons and is available to
Daily specials show the diversity of Ramona's culinary talents
with seafood items, bar-b-que, wraps and yummy things inside
pastry. An all day breakfast is also served and the lunch menu has
favorite like BLT's, grilled cheese and hamburgers "to die for." If
pizza is your thing, starting with fresh dough, the caf6 will biild
you a pizza masterpiece.
Wine is available with your meal but good ole' sweet tea is still
on the menu. Don't forget dessert! Ramona's hot chocolate cake,
cheese cake and "Mile High Blueberry Cake", will top off any
meal. They even have ice cream cones, a big hit with young and
.The bottom line is that Joe and Ramona have made the
Horseshoe Beach Caf6 a place where families can gather and
:.,6,: -x_-2,friends can meet for great fellowship and. wonderful food.
Whether you are a traditionalist or more on the adventurous side,
A. Ramona has the meal that will satisfy for palette, without breaking
