acres of land located off 55A,

built, along % ith help in
building a road to the proposed
While the Commissioners
were. in favor of the center,
they noted that the land would
need to be re-zoned and that a
public hearing would have to
be held.
Arthur Bellot, a resident of
55A, stated he was in
opposition to the facility being
placed in a residential area and
asked that the Commissioners
deny any re-zoning change.
After some discussion, the
Commissioners asked Mr.
Clark and his colleagues to
come back to the November 3rd
meeting which will be held at
10:00 a.m. for additional
public opinion on the proposed
center; which they did. Those
wishing to express opposition

Authorities Have Lead In Bomb

Threat At DCHS
Last Thursday, October 20th, the main office at the Dixie
County High School received a phone call with the caller stating
that he had placed a bomb in the main building.
Following procedure for such an event, Principal Charlotte
Lord alerted law enforcement and had the main building
evacuated. Once the building was searched, students were allowed
back to their classrooms, while some students continued their
lunch break.
It was only moments after the "all clear" was issued when they.
received a second call from the would-be bomber. The caller stated
that he had warned them of the pending danger and reminded them
that the bomb was set to go off in 5 minutes. Lord pulled the fire
alarm in order to get a quick evacuation of all students.
Once again, law enforcement officials searched the building
and once again they found it to be safe for students and staff to
Police have been able to obtain several leads in the case and
hope to have an arrest in the near future. The school has a no
tolerance for such prank calls and takes them very serious. Not
only is it a felony to make threatening calls, it is also against the
law to disrupt a school function.

Jerry Prater

Welcome to the Wild, Wild West
'Although our area is in the %western part of Florida, our state is
rfit generally considered tobe a western state, mainly because it
exists on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Nonetheless,
we have been accused of regressing to the gun-slinging days of
our nation's western frontier as it existed well over a century ago.
I just thought I'd throw that in, owing to the fact that you
might need to explain it to our liberal friends, many of whom are
even now hanging out at airports and telling visitors from foreign
countries that they are in grave danger of being shot if they come
to Florida. They just can't seem to understand that a bill recently
passed by the Florida legislature does not authorize shoot-outs in
saloons or in response to road-rage incidents on public highways.
SB 436, which went into effect on October 1st of this year,
basically says you don't have to go hide under your bed if
someone breaks into your house in the middle of the night with
the obvious intent of doing you serious' bodily harm, or even
robbing you. It's perfectly all right to use deadly force in the form
of a baseball bat, knife, two-by-four, Samurai sword, karate thrust
or (gasp!) even a firearm in your own defense in such
, I recall a few years back reading about a mother at home with
small children shooting an intruder and being prosecuted because
investigators theorized that she could have taken the kids and
escaped. That didn't happen in 'Florida, by the way, and I can't
remember which state in our nation's "enlightened" northeastern
quadrant hosted this travesty of justice: but it's just as well 'our
legislators have seen fit to pass legislation to ensure that it doesn't
happen here.
The law not only provides immunity from criminal
prosecution for someone using deadly force in accordance with the
statute, it also protects against civil liability, and that's important.
: Some years ago, an Ohio family's home was broken into, and
tfe burglar turned out to be rather clumsy. He apparently tripped
over some object left on the stairs, fell and hurt himself. Poor
liaby. But he sued his victims and collected!
' It's a shame that such things can happen in a civilized
country, but since they do (at least in some jurisdictions), we're
fortunate to have laws on the books preventing the same thing
com happening here.
. Incidentally, things are even worse in the European socialist
countries, where "gun control" reigns supreme. Great Britain saw
ie citizen's right to keep and bear arms go down the drain, first
iith a law requiring the registration of all firearms, amid
assurances that this was strictly to form a basis for prosecuting
criminals, and would not affect law-abiding citizens. Once this
jvas accomplished. British citizens woke up one morning to find
themselves subject to a law forbidding them to own guns. The
result? Burglars no longer bother waiting until their victims aren't
lome. Home invasion robberies have increased exponentially.
: It seems to me that, if our liberal friends were honest. they'd
e telling our visitorss from across the Atlantic that there has been
(o increase in homicides as a result of Florida's new law. and that
Mhe percentage of violent crimes throughout our country is
mversely proportional to the extent to %which law-abiding citizens
#re allowed to keep and bear arms, and to use them in their own
defense. Who knows? Some of our visitors might even go home

Letter to the Editor
In the early morning hours, October 11th, the curve four miles
north of CR 358 and US 19 claimed its third crash victim this year.
Unable to report the driver's name, the DC Advocate provided only
a sketch of the 1996 Volvo tractor trailer crash. The funeral eulogy
for Captain Laurence N. Brammer Jr. by his Viet Nam Squadron
Leader puts a name and an identity to the fifty-nine year old good
man this dangerous highway curve claimed. The following is
abridged from the eulogy.
I met Larry, 18 years old and fresh out of high school, when he
enlisted into the operational detachments of Company C, 12th
Special Forces, U.S. Army Reserve. I believe he was the first
enlisted who had no prior military service. Prior recruits had
served in Regular Army Airborne Divisions to ensure new units
would be imbued with the hard core, harsh discipline, Spartan
mean mentality essential for survival when committed to
operations behind enemy lines. He was selected because he
exhibited unusual potential; we were not disappointed.
Larry was the most natural soldier, He had an uncanny sense
and feel for land navigation. 'When I had, to make time in rough
terrain,' I put Larry on point. He could study his map against the
visible terrain features; shoot a couple of azimuths with his
compass; and move the troops quickly, safely, to the desired
destination. He was one of my he-horses, accomplishing more than
ordinary paratroopers, all extra-ordinary men themselves. He
would respond until he couldn't move.
Larry was an incredibly intelligent man with a diverse
experiential background a Boy Scout leader, avid outdoorsman,
baseball umpire, civilian construction contractor, accomplished
carpenter and a long distance hauler with emphasis in hauling
specialized .loads. He was especially proud of his sons and
grandchildren, supporting and encouraging them in their
endeavors. He was a tough, loving, solid, dedicated, honest,
trustworthy, dependable, competent, skilled, knowledgeable,
diverse man. Was he flawed?
Certainly. He was human. But his strengths so overshadowed
his weaknesses that, if weakness was ever manifested, I took no
notice. He was more than a solider and a friend; he became a friend
who was as close as a brother, and I'm not even sure how that
happened; it's enough that it did. Sir, I salute your service, our
friendship, and our brotherhood.
This crash was senseless and avoidable; no different than the

disaster waiting to happen at Continental Road and US 19 where
school busses cross the intersection without traffic lights to control
the flow of traffic that includes logging trucks entering the lumber
An infinite number of solutions immediate, short term
remedies and long term solutions can fix engineering quirks on
highways that have a history of fatality crashes as well as put in
place remedies to avert potential disasters. However,
improvements won't be forthcoming until state highway and safety
agencies the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
(HSMV), Florida D.O.T., sheriffs departments, local police, and
the Highway Patrol have immediate access to a current, accurate,
seamless retrieval information data base system to drive their
performance. It is acutely apparent to me that this is not the case.
Consequently, the deadly curve four miles north of CR 358 and
US 19 goes without temporary signage that would prevent a fourth
fatality crash and school buses continue to play tag with logging
trucks as they cross the intersection of US 19 and Continental
Isn't it time to fix the problems? Doing nothing is not an
acceptable solution.

The Dixie County Board of ,,,.Co ;. ,
County Commissioners held
their evening meeting on e .L-l, 1
Thursday, October 20th at 6:00 "
PM in the Commission Meeting ,
Room in order to take care of -
county business and give '1
citizens an opportunity to bring "., .. .
issues of concern before the .
Board. "', .,
First on the agenda was
Scott Gantt, representing the Pentecostal Holiness Church of Cross
City concerning a billboard located by Hudson Field off US 19.
Gantt relayed to the Commissioner that the church would like to
rent the billboard and noted they would pay for any repairs in
addition to the monthly rental costs. The Commissioner approved
the request without hesitation.
Bill Cummings came before the Board with news that the
Habitat for Humanity of Suwannee Valley, Inc. recently received
their license and certification; something they had been working
towards for the past two years.
Cummings gave a brief summary of what Habitat For
Humanities is, their history and most importantly the benefits they
can bring to Dixie residents. Several things he noted were that the
homeowner of a Habitat home is a taxpayer rather than a tax user.
In a few years, the homeowner will build equity in their home,
;giving them an opportunity to break out of the poverty cycle.
Studies show that children of homeowners are 25% more likely to
graduate from high school, 116% more likely to graduate from
college and 59% more likely to own a home. As Habitat mortgages
are repaid, that money goes back into the pot for other homes to be
The Board was impressed with the information given by
Cummings and thanked him and the other volunteers for their
efforts in bringing this service to the Dixie, Levy and Gilchrist
areCummings stated that while they have come a long way, they
are still in need of volunteers to serve on the various committees
needed to make the program a success. Anyone interested can
contact Mr. Cummings at 352-463-8003.
Building Official Jack Spivey reported on a meeting that he and
County Manager Arthur Bellot attended on growth management
planning. Spivey noted that there are many changes coming and
that Dixie should be prepared.
David Osteen, County Reef Coordinator brought good news to
the Board about the pending reef project. Osteen, along with
representatives from several state agencies recently dove the
Horseshoe Reef Site and found it to be alive and well. He
presented the Board with several pictures of the dive and stated
that it looks good for the grant to expand on the 40 acre site to be
The Board thanked Osteen for his hard work and dedication to
the project and asked that he keep them posted on the final word
from Tallahassee.
The next County Commission Meeting will be held on
Thursday, November 3rd at 10:00 A.M. in the Commission Room.

Holetz, 59, of Novi, MI was
also traveling, north behind
Wade... .
It was while Wade was
passing Henry that the accident
occurred. Once Wade had
passed. Henry it was then that
Holetz realized that Henry was
going slower than the speed
limit and steered to the left to
keep from hitting him. -
Holetz's 2005 Buick struck
: the left rear of Henry's 1993
Honda and continued to travel
to the left crossing the median
and both southbound lanes
before going into a slide and
eventually overturning onto its
roof. .
Holetz's received possible
injuries, while Henry received
non-incapacitating injuries.
Both Dixie and Gilchrist EMS
were at the scene and
transported the injured to
Shands in Gainesville.

Holetz was charged with
careless driving.
On Friday, October 21,
2005 a New Port Richey man
was critically injured in an
accident thatt occurred
approximately 11 miles north
of Cross City on US 19, just
north of NE 888th Street.
An FHP preliminary report
stated that John J. Bishop, 77,
was traveling north in the left
lane and as he entered a right
hand curve too fast his 2001
Toyota pickup went off the
road into the median.
It was when Bishop tried to
get back onto the roadway that
he lost control and overturned
onto the shoulder.
Bishop was wearing his
seatbelt which kept him from
being ejected; however he
sustained serious injuries and
was treated at the scene by
.Dixie EMS and then
transported by ShandsCair to

Faith Baptist Church News
S We want to especially thank God that another hurricane
appears to be on some other track and not going to affect us
directly. We also thank Him for the rain he has sent our way today.
Church today was really wonderful too. We had 3 new members
join as our number continues to grow. God is so good. Janet
O'Steen sang in the morning service and Josie Storey in the
evening service. They both did fantastic jobs and blessed our
hearts in song. God just never stops blessing Faith.
The youth really had a great time at the lock-in last Friday
night. Sis. Brenda Carter is really working hard with the youth and
had 14 young people at the lock-in. What a blessing. We
appreciate Sis. Brenda and the great job she's doing.
We will be really busy in the coming weeks and here's our
Saturday the 29th will be our Fall Festival with lots of new and
exciting things to do for all ages. Beginning at 4:00 PM there will
- be fire truck rides, hay rides, ambulance rides, etc. for the youth (or
the young at heart), a cake walk for allages (the ladies are asked to
bring a cake of some sort to walk for) and then at 6:00 PM we will
have hobo stew made by the men of the church, and the ladies are
asked to bring cornbread, crackers, salads and desserts to go with
it. Come out and enjoy a great time of fellowship among Christian
Sunday the 30th will be our 5t Sunday with a covered dish
luncheon following the morning services. Bro. Kacie will be
leading the sing that night and if you want to sing, please let him
know so he can get you on the list. We have a lot of talent and we
want to hear them ALL.
Sunday the 6th will be Homecoming with Bro. Jake Cravey
preaching, followed by another covered dish luncheon after the
morning service, then after that Southland will be with us in
concert in the afternoon.
Monday the 7t' begins our Fall revival with Bro. Jake Cravey
preaching it and will continue through Thursday night the 10 .
Come hear Bro. Jake bring us God's messages and invite a friend
to come with you.
We.had several visitors today and we want to let them know
how special they are to us here. If you are looking for a church
home, you won't find a better one than Faith, and if you're just
passing through, we invite you to come back anytime.
May God bless you this week, keep you healthy and happy and
we'll be looking forward to seeing you again next week.
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"Jerusalem Old and New"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say some think they
cannot live in this Holy City until somewhere out beyond the cemetery.
Please do not let Satan cheat you out of your inheritance any longer. It has
been here for us ever since John saw it coming down. And the gates are
never shut, He told us, so it is your privilege to "enter in through the gates
into the city."
I, the Day of the Lord, say Paul said, "But ye are come'(present tense-
in it now) unto Mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the
heavenly Jerusalem." (Heb 12:22). Now if you say-you cannot come into it
till after physical death you are making Paul a liar. Satan is the liar and he
is the one that has deceived you into believing you cannot live in the new
Jerusalem till after physical death.
I, the Day of the Lord, say It is after death alright, but it is the death
we die to our adam nature, not physical death. And that is when the return
of the Lord takes place, which is also spiritual and not literal, as many
suppose. "For unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second
time without sin unto salvation." Heb 9:28.
I, the Day of the Lord, say of course if people are looking for a
physical Christ to come back that they can see with their physical eyes,
then they would also have to have a literal city (Jerusalem), for Him to
come [o: and man. are looking tow'jrd old JerujlernV uer in Palestine for
a literal Christ lo appear and hiierjll., sn on Dai d i throne there and rule
as a civil officer 'er er [lie le,, BUI ,t is all spiriitial
:I, the Day of the Lord, say (The spiritual Jew is the person who had
had circumcision of the heart by God. Are you one of them?) It would be a
physical impossibility for all the literal Jews to gather back in Palestine. It
is a very small country and I am told there would not be standing room in
it for the Jews in New York State alone.
I, the Day of the Lord, say And beside that God told the Jews (for they
rejected Him) "your house is left unto you desolate." "He came unto his
own and his own received Him not." He said to the Jews, the inhabitants.
of old Jerusalem, "0 Jerusalem,. Jerusalem, thou that killeth the prophets,
and stoneth them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have
gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under
her wings, and ye would not. Behold, your house is left unto you
desolate." (empty, forsaken)
I, the Day of the Lord, say now if any individual Jew get into His new
city they will have to come the same way the rest of us get in. Their
leaders said, "We will not have .this man to rule over us." When they
refused "often" to let Him gather them with Him, do you think He would
come back and gather them anyway? God does not force anyone, but
whosoever will may come.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Brother, arb you living in the New
Jerusalem? Do not pin your hope to the war torn, desert town over in
Palestine. Christ has come and is reigning now in the new Jerusalem. ( .1
John 4: 1,2)

Sunday, the welcome coolness of autumn pervaded the air as

He does in coordinating the intricate details necessary for the
changing of the seasons! Our choir did its usual fine job of
praising Him in song, after which we enjoyed special songs by
young Shauna Clark...g;ood job, Shauna! Bro. Billy was clear and
forthright as he brought God's timely messages from 1st Timothy
1:12-16. It was good to be in the house of the Lord.

Cburt of


The Word Made

"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. 1,
the son of man, say man from
natural becomes' spiritual. The
natural man differs altogether
from tlie spiritual, arnd the spiritual
'from the natural, to such a degree,
that they cannot be given together;
.,he. who doth not. know what a
spiritual principle ,is in its essence,
may believe that what is spiritual
is only a more pure natural
principle, which in man is called
rational; but what is spiritual is
above what is natural, and as
distinct as is the light of mid-day
compared with the shade of the
1 evening in the time of a autumn:
the distinction and the difference
c-cannot be known by anyone
except who is in both worlds, the
'natural and the spiritual, and to
whom it is given to make the
alternate changes, by being at one
time in one world and to another
time in another, and to look at one
From the other by reflection.
I, the son of man, say I have
been informed what the quality of
Natural man is, and what the
u quality of the spiritual man, who is
!r spirit; and that it may be more
generally known, it shall be briefly
described: the natural man in all
j things of his thought and speech,
t and in all things of his will and
action, hath for a subject matter,
. space, time and quantity, which
i things are fixed and stated with
him. neither without them is he in
any idea of thought and
consequent speech, nor in any
I"''affection of will and consequent
action; the, spiritual man, or the
'spirit, hath not those things for
subjects, but only for object; the
reason is, because in the.spiritual
world there are objects altogether
similar to those whichh are in the
natural % orld. as lands, plains,
fields, gardens; forests, houses and
chambers therein, and in them all
things whichh are for use; moreover
there are garments, appropriate
both to women and men such as
are in the world: there are tables,
meats, and drinks, such as. are in
the world; there are, likewise
animals, both tame and noxious;
hence there are spade and time,
also numbers and measures: all
those things bare .such a
resemblance to the things which
are in the world, that to the eye
they are not distinguishable;
nevertheless all those things are
appearances, the things of the
understanding of angels being
appearances of wisdom, and the
things of the will of angels being
appearances of the perception of
their love, for they are created in a
moment by the Lord, and are also
in a moment dissipated, being
permanent and .. non-permanent
according to the constancy and
inconstancy of spirits or angels in
those things of which they are
appearances. Love you, continued
next week.

Let it not be death.. .but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into song...
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings
over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be Gentle like the flower of the
Stand still, 0 Beautiful One, for a moment, and say your last
words in silence...
I bow to you and hold up a lamp to light the way of your
endless journey!
You are forever in our hearts, and Your spirit is ever present in

Celebration of Wildlife
The Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys National Wildlife
Refuges (NWR) celebrated National Wildlife Refuge Week at the
Cedar Key Light Station on Seahorse Key. Nearly seven hundred
visitors joined in the Open house held in celebration of wildlife
and history with tours of the historic lighthouse and the nineteenth
century cemetery.
Young and old alike families and friends enjoyed the touch
tanks, which held marine creatures gathered by the University of
Florida's Marine Research Lab staff. Refuge Ranger Pam Darty
provided interpretation of the Refuge island rookery, home to
thousands of nesting birds and migratory birds that stop off to
enjoy the island life.
To add ambience to the event the U.S.S. Fort Henry re-
enactors were on scene with demonstrations of weaponry, drills,
and music of the time. One of the Civil War "sailors" in period-
dress is a Board member for the Friends of Lower Suwannee and
Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges. Other Friends Board
Members, Joan Stephens Loye and Barney Barnard, and Refuge
"Volunteers Dick and Barbara Tompkins staffed the Refuge booth
'at the Cedar Key Seafood Festival to provide information about the

DCHS "Pride of Dixie" Marching

Band Earns 'Excellent Rating'

At District Contest

,,#45, K. Hope out ran the opponent last Duke Dawson & Logan Miller bring down
Saturday to score the first TD for the an Indian player last Saturday.
Golden Bears.

,.championship that's what we did. If you believe, there is no telling what you can do."
The Bears traveled to their game in high style in a plush motor coach provided by Pastor Ella
Peterson and The Royal Temple Church of God In Christ. By the time they arrived in Chiefland, they
were pumped up and ready to play. The Bears won the toss and decided to take possession of the ball
first. The first quarter saw the Bears on offense for the whole period with the quarter.ending scoreless
and the Indians in possession.
As the second quarter got underway, the Indian offense was no match for the Bear line. The
Bears, led by tackles Kiandre Hope and Austin Waldron, forced the Indians to give up the ball after
only one first down. Starting out on the 30-yard line, Dixie County failed to gain any position needed
to score before the halftime buzzer.
At the start of the third quarter it looked like the Bears and Indians would be playing overtime as
neither team had scored. The Indians started out with the ball and were forced to punt after four short
plays. The Bears, however, had other plans. Quarterback Duke Dawson handled the ball 'to
powerhouse Kiandre Hope, who promptly ran for the score. Dawson then handed the ball to "Bad"
Brad Cooper who scored the extra point. They made it look so easy. The score was 7-0 and two short
series later, after some rough and tumble playing,, the third quarter was over.
Th.-Indians again started with the ball, but were forced to punt after four plays. The Golden
Bears stepped up to the line w ith only 5:19 left to go in the championship game. Dawson smoothly
handed the ball off to Hope who had a slight yardage gain. Dawson then handed the ball to number
three. Shaquille Mitchem. He evaded several tackles and sprinted toward the goal for a 50-yard
touchdo% n run.
In the next series, the Bears defense, led by Quade Locke, effectively stopped the Indian offense.
SWith 2:33 left to play, 'Iron Will" Kelley took over the Quarterback duties and held on to the ball to
finish the game with the Bears in control. The final score of the championship game was 13-0.
This was a great victory for the Golden Bears. It is the first team in youth league football in Dixie
County to claim a conference championship..Congratulations to the team for going undefeated in
regular season play.
In post game comments, Coach Anderson told the boys, "that it isn't the few who make the plays
that win the game, it takes all the players, some good and others better, but everyone pulling together
as a team. Next year some of you men will get better, we believe that everyone this season did his part
to make this teani win. I am very proud of you."
t With this victory, Dixie County can add another proud feather in its cap. The coaches, parents
and players worked very hard and are to be congratulated by all for a successful season .of youth
I football. The League would like to encourage all of the youth to come .out and play next year and
remember, WE BELIEVE!

By John Kelley
The Dixie County High School Marching Band performed Saturday in Lake City at the FBA
District IV Marching Band Performance Assessment. This year the Band moved up in their scoring
according to Director Jamie Garrett. The competition saw nineteen area bands looking for top honors
to complete their seasons. The Bands performed at Columbia High School stadium in front of a large
crowd of supporters and other bands.
Each band performed a show that lasts about nine minutes on average. It is calculated that the
average tempo of playing is about 120 counts per minute and it contains 1080 beats. For each beafl
the following must be accomplished: in step, proper stride length, correct dress, perfect posture;
uniform instrument carriage, proper facing and other considerations. This is a total of 9270 potential
marching and maneuvering errors per student. With this in mind, how did the DCHS Band do? Last
year, the Band could only muster a 'good' rating in all categories. This year, the 'Pride of Dixie
earned Excellent overall with the Color Guard turning in a Superior performance.
The Director, Assistant Director and Drum Majors are to be commended for the performance of
the Band. This year their performance was entitled "Inner Child" and included Land of Make Believe,
A Childhood Hymn; It's the Hard Knock Life and the theme from Sesame Street.
The Marching Band will still conduct a few more local performances before the end of the season.
Look for them at Homecoming 2005 as they pump up the school spirit and they will also be in the
Annual Christmas Parade.
The Band will also be giving a Christmas concert on December 5th., They are also planning a
Christmas Surprise for Dixie County. This will be elaborated on at a future date, so be on the lookout
for something rarely seen in these parts.
Meanwhile, come out and enjoy the performance of our outstanding talented youth. Support your
local marching band.

Youth League Football Bears Beat

Patriots In Season Closer

By John Kelley
The Dixie Youth League
Bears, 0-6, took on the
Trenton Patriots in the season
closer held in Chiefland on
Saturday. Although, the Bears
struggled all season, they
showed, determination as they
thrashed the Patriots 14-7. In
the season closing bowl
game, the Bears set out to win
the, last game and end the
season on a high note.
Michael Carter drew first
blood as he scored in the
opening minutes of the first,
quarter. The Patriots came
right -back and scored with
just 17 seconds in the first
quarter to tie the score, 7-7.
Both teams traded the ball
back and forth during the
second quarter with no score
for either side as half-time
loomed near.
Houston Rhodes playing
both offense and defense kept
the Trenton team out of
scoring range, but struggled
to gain the upper hand with
his offense. His break came
late in the third quarter with a
combination of quarterback
keepers and running plays by
Carter.. Rhodes then ran the
ball into the end zone with a
faked handoff and scored.
Daniel Thomas perfected his
extra point attempt, giving the
Bears a 14-7 lead.
The fourth quarter started
with Trenton in possession of
the ball with the Bears
managing to hold them .until
3:20 left in the game. A pass
play by the Patriots resulted
in an interception by big
number 98, Dillon Parker.,
With the ball firmly in hand,
the Bears wisely ran down the
clock for a tremendous win
over the Patriots.
Coach McFall told the.
Advocate, "I believe we have
gotten .just a little bit better
every game. I am proud of the
way the team had held their
heads up even though it was a
tough season. We will
remember this game long
after we forget the games that
we lost. This team will be a
team to reckon with next

Haunted House
Like so many houses, the old place had a number of families
live it in over the years. Now this one had been kept up very well
indeed, the owners and the residents of the place had seen to that.
But it still didn't stop some of the rumors. You know the kind the
rumors that always seem to center around the really old homes.
That it was haunted! Yes, this was an old home like so many
on the eastern shore of our country. After all, that where our
forefathers settled first.
Where I live, an old house is maybe 80 or 90, and most of the
homes have been built in the last 40 years. So, the history is not
that long. But back East, well that's a different story. The homes
of such greats as Paul Revere, George Washington and Thomas
Jefferson are approaching 300 years old now. Some, much older.
And you know that's almost nothing compared to some of the
homes in Europe. And maybe that's where some of this haunting
business comes from. I'm not sure.
What I am sure of is that the families who lived in this house
had some very definite ideas about the subject. Here, let me read.
you a portion of a letter written by a man who lived there in the
1940s. He wrote to his daughter Maggie, "Night before last, I went
Sto bed at nine o'clock after shutting my doors. At four o'clock I.
was awakened by three distinct knocks on my bedroom door. I
jumped up and opened the door to find no one there. I left the door.,
open and I went back to bed, only to hear footsteps outside the
door moments later. This happened three times that night."
Lillian Parks heard it too, a few years later when she was there
the same footsteps back and forth. Some time later when the
house changed hands and new families moved in, John heard it,
and he said so. In one room, furniture seemed to get moved when
no one was around, or even near the place. All in all, five residents
of the old house have heard the footsteps and knocks and seen the
furniture move over the years and have recorded it in one way or
another in order to document it.
Is it haunted? I have no idea. What do you think? Oh, before
you make up your mind, there is one more thing you should know.
This particular house is one that is very closely watched and
watched by some of the best security people in the world. It's a
Little Known Fact that over a period of 100 years, Andy and
Harry, and Mamie, and Jerry, and Margaret and Jackie all heard
and saw things that they thought may have been ghosts and
documented it. And as I said, this really couldn't be some silly
kids' prank; the kids were watched too closely. So was everybody.
You see, all these people lived in a house so closely guarded; it's
hard to get a fingernail clipper in without someone knowing. All
those people lived in our most famous house ... the White House!

This side of 60...
By Marie Snider
Last weekend, my daughter went to a women's retreat
organized by her good friend Cindy. This was the third weekend
retreat that Cindy has organized. There were 25 women there this
year a network of young professional women, many of them in
journalism or related fields.
The retreat is a perfect way for busy women to get away from
their families and their professions for a refreshing and enriching
weekend. And what a weekend it was!
My daughter came home excited and ready to get to work
again. She had gone horseback riding, played Mah Jong, had
stimulating conversations, carved pumpkins, tried archery for the
first time and studied tea-making complete with a lesson in what
tea mixtures can help with healing.
The women also made s'mores and sang around a campfire
after a moonlight walk. But the activity that most intrigued me
was "treasure mapping."
The treasure mapping concept comes from "Creative
Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What
You Want in Your Life" by Shakti Gawain, a book that has sold
more than six million copies in 30 languages.
Gawain describes creative visualization as the technique of
using your imagination to create what you want in your life. And
one technique she recommends is treasure mapping.
To make a treasure map, you first define something specific
that you'd like to see happen in your life. It can be a material
possession, an improved relationship or an experience, such as
travel. Or you could do a treasure map for your whole life.
After identifying your treasure, look through magazines to
find visual images that represent that experience or 'goal.: Then,
take a large sheet of paper and begin putting together a collage to
create your treasure paste an image of yourself, something that
represents God or the eternal and the pictures you cut out of the
The final step is writing on the collage something like this,
"My goal should manifest, itself in harmonious ways for the good
of all." After all, you don't want any selfish dreams that aren't
good for other people.
If you find this exercise grade-schoolish, think again. Just
how are you going to fulfill your dreams, unless you have
Some people think that dreams and goals are for young
people, but that is a foolish idea. Young people have their whole
lives ahead of them, but older people do not have unlimited time.
So it is much more important for older people to know what they
want to accomplish in their remaining years.
Why not sit down right now with a cup of coffee and do some
creative visualization.
What are your dreams? Do you want to write your memoirs,
or put your personal theology on paper? Do you want to piece
quilts for all of your grandchildren, or do you dream of winning a
national award for your watercolor painting?
Do you want to make a difference by volunteering, or would
you rather start a business? Do you want to plant a wonderful
garden, or learn to play the piano?
Whatever your dreams, don't let them die. And possibly, a
treasure map could help you define them. Always remember,
when it comes to creating the life you want, it's up to you to take

Halloween Safety Tips
Halloween is a time of great fun for children, but it can be a
little scary for parents and drivers. Children are often out after
dark, crossing busy streets and perhaps going to unfamiliar homes.
"With the season's shortened daylight and excited kids frantically
going from neighbor to neighbor, drivers need to be particularly
cautious," said Ray Palermo, director of public information for
Teacher's Insurance Plan. "However, by following some simple
advice, parents, children, drivers and homeowners can all have a
safe, enjoyable time."
This year Halloween falls on a school day, which means trick-
or-treating, is more likely to take place at dusk or later. If children
are out at night, drivers need to be particularly careful at dusk and
when driving either over a hill or around a curve, where visibility
is limited. Use high beams to see and be seen.
Trick-or-treaters should always be accompanied by an adult or
travel in a group. Children should be told not to eat any unwrapped
candy or treats until they return home where their parents can see
them. Making sure kids have already eaten before heading out may
Parents should incorporate ,reflective tape in costumes or add
bright colors to increase visibility. Make-up rather than masks
should be worn to help ensure that children have an unobstructed
view of their surroundings.
Trick-or-treaters may be caught up in the excitement of the day
and not be as careful as they should. They should always cross at
corners and look both ways before crossing. Drivers need to keep a
careful eye on the road and on the sidewalk, in case anyone darts
out from between parked cars.
Children should stay on the sidewalk or if none is available,
walk facing the lane of traffic, and they should carry a flashlight.
Homeowners should clear their yards of anything that can be
tripped over and be sure to have a front.door or walkway light on,
and refrain from decorations that use an open flame that could
ignite a child's costume.
A free brochure with more advice, "Halloween Safety Tips," is
available by calling 1-800-2teachers or visiting their website:

Festival Of Lights Preparing For
Another Great Day
The Fanning Springs Chamber of Commerce is gearing up
for another year of excitement as plans for the 17th Annual
Festival of Lights and Christmas Boat Parade get underway.
Everything will be held at the Fanning Springs State Park again
this year on Saturday, December 10th, so mark your calendar and
plan to come join us for a lot of fun and activities.
There will be many Art & Craft people bringing their hand
made items to tempt you for that special Christmas gift or just to
.enjoy for your own family. The aroma of the various foods will
tickle your taste buds so you will want to try them all. As usual
there will be entertainment all day long and we will bring some
new venue to the stage this year. Tickets will soon go on sale for
the numerous drawings that are held each hour for the many gifts
donated by our wonderful local merchants.
The Suwannee River Boat Club is busy warming up those
cute little yellow rubber ducks for the Ducky Race on the River
and you surely don't want to miss out on this exciting event. As
they are dumped out into the river, the excitement grows as we
watch them swimming down and see which ones cross the finish
lines first. The first 3 bring some great prizes for the lucky
The Tri County Cruisers Car Club already has many entries
in the Classic Car Show. This event brings car owners from all
over the state and beyond to show off their pride and joy and hope
to drive away with the top prizes. This is a must for anyone who
enjoys seeing some beautiful cars.
The ABATE Club is also getting set up for their Bike &
Tryke Show which features many types of motorcycles. This
year they are participating in the Toys for Tots program and will
help raise many donations for needy children in the area, all the
while having great fun in doing so.
Of course the day would not be complete until jolly ole Santa
Claus drops in to visit all of the children with a little treat for each
of them. Then everyone gets ready, for another spectacular
lighted Boat Parade on the beautiful Suwannee River. If you have
never come out to watch these magnificent creations, you will be
for a treat indeed. The boaters really put everything into making
their entry the very best. They are judged on imagination,
creativeness and beauty in small, medium and large categories, so
everyone comes away a winner. The boat parade will begin at
6:30 and ends approximately 9:00 o'clock.
The gates will open at 9:00 am with parking inside the Park.
There will be a $2.00 parking fee charged at the gate for each
vehicle. We are looking forward to have each of you come out
and enjoy this wonderful event with us. For more information
contact the Fanning Springs Chamber of Commerce at 463-9089.

*of recreation we participate in; all due to the
rising price of crude oil.
October's Rotary Student Guests were
Courtney Elton and Brandi Kirkland. These two
S young ladies were well received by the Rotary
members as they spoke about Halloween and a
SI more serious subject, autism.
Courtney is the daughter of Chuck Elton and
Teresa Gay. She is involved a variety of extra
curricular activities at Dixie County High, such

Engers-Rotary Student Guest Coordinator. (HOSA), Beta and Spanish Clubs, and FFA. She
is a National Honor Student and works in the
child care field. Courtney said that her Health
q Science class is her favorite because it pertains
to her future career, nursing. Her goal is to
obtain her RN from Lake City Community
College and then go to the University of Florida
to get her Nurse Practitioner Degree.
Courtney's speech was a lesson in
Halloween; its history, where the tradition of
carving pumpkins and "trick or treating" came
From. Rotarians learned that Halloween started
carving, which began in the United States,

thinking you were one of them. Very interesting and most appropriate as we will be celebrating
,Halloween next week.
Brandi Kirkland is the daughter of Claudia Calhoun of Old Town. She is involved in the Beta
,Club, FFA, HOSA, and Spanish Club. Brandi is a Sunday School teacher and is also a childcare
provider. Her favorite subject is Health Science because it has given her a direction.
Brandi will be attending Lake City Community College and then transfer to the University of
-Florida to obtain her B.S. degree. She plans on going to medical school; majoring .in anatomy and
"physiology. When all said and done, Brandi hopes to specialize in Pediatrics.
Brandi spoke about a subject close to her, autism. Both her half-brother and cousin have autism,
'a condition that makes it hard, if not impossible to communicate with them.
' Autism is' a type of pervasive developmental disorder. Although there is no cure, there are
treatmentss that can improve the condition; some as simple as changing their diet or giving MB12
!shots' 'Brandi noted that over the years autism has increased from 5 children per 10,000 live births to
60: per 10,000 since the early 1990s. While the reasons for the increase are still being debated, some
believe it is from the over vaccination of infants and mercury poisoning.
Rotary Student Guests will be given the opportunity to apply for one of the scholarships made
.available at the end of the school year. These three young people are good examples of the caliber of
.student that Dixie County High will be graduating in 2005.

My 9 Rules for Safety
1 Before I go anywhere, I always
check first with my parents or the
person in charge. I tell them where
I am going, how I will get there, who
will be going with me, and when I'll
be back.
2 I check first for permission from
my parents before getting Into a car
or leaving with anyone even
someone I know. I check first be-
fore changing plans or accepting
money, gifts, or drugs without my
parents' knowledge.
2 It is safer for me to be with other
people when going places or play-
ing outside. I always use the
"buddy system."
A I say NO if someone tries to touch
me in ways that make me feel fright-
ened, uncomfortable, or confused.
Then I go and tell a grown-up I trust
what happened.
I know it is not my fault if some-
one touches me in a way that is not
O.K. I don't have to keep secrets
about those touches.
SI trust my feelings and talk to
S grown-ups about problems that are
too big for me to handle on my own.
A lot of people care about me and
will listen and believe me. I am not
7 It is never too late to ask for help.
7I can keep asking until I get the help
I need.
I am a special person, and I deserve
lo feel safe. My rules are:

October Is
ZHead Start

The grades are in for Head
Start, and they're impressive.
After scrutinizing the
results of the Congressionally
mandated, scientifically
rigorous Head Start Impact
Study, scientists can now
report that Head Start's
comprehensive child-
development program
dramatically reduces the
nation's education
achievement gap.
Children participating in
Head Start did better, by nearly
half, in developing their pre-
reading skills than did a
control group of similar
children \ ho \\ere not enrolled
in Head Start. Head start three
Year olds out performed other
children on six of the nine
early learning tests conducted
as part of the study.
For more information on
the local Head Start program

In this week's Dixie Sightings we are featuring a beautiful sunset taken by
Ben West of Suwannee and following up on some pineapples grown by Sally

The sunset picture was taken Sunday, October 23rd around 7:00pm just as Hurricane Wilma was
approaching Florida. The dark clouds from Wilma's "exhaust", mixed in with the setting sun made
for a dramatic sunset. Thanks, as always, Ben!
The pineapples shown in bottom picture were featured earlier this summer as they were growing
in Sally's garden. Sally sent an update to let us know that not only did they look like pineapples,
they tasted like pineapples. In fact she stated that they were the best she had ever tasted. Maybe
she'll grow a few extras to share with us here at the Advocate next year...hint hint.

Top picture is of the Florida WWII Monument in Tallahassee. Bottom picture is of the plaque
that represents Dixie County at the monument.

With the formalities behind them, Lamb was
pleased to announce this year's Honored Guest
- Dot Halvorsen. For those of us who have
been fortunate enough to have met this lovely
lady, you know she is an advocate for veterans
of all wars. Dot and her group have traveled
throughout the tri-county area, speaking at'
schools and other functions, telling their stories
of a war that began on December 7i, 1941 when
Japan attacked the US Naval BAse in Pearl
Dot pointed out that there is a rich history
right here in Dixie County of WWII support.
That support has been memorialized at the
Florida WWII Monument located in
Tallahassee. The memorial is a replica.of the
monument in Washington D.C., but showcases
each of Florida's 67 counties and their
contributions to the war effort. Dot asked
Sherry Ragsdale to read what appears on the
Dixie County plaque which included
information about the Cross City Airport, used
as an Army Air Corps training facility; one of
the best installations of its kind to be found in a
small, rural county;, the 865 men and women
who served during the war which included
Tlhaddeis Parker, one the first to give his life
and whose,heroism was honored when the Navy
named a destroy, er after him.
Dot presented Commissioner John Driggers
with a copy of the plaque to be hung in the
Cross City Airport terminal as a reminder of its
beginnings. Driggers accepted the plaque on
behalf of all the Commissioners and residents of
Dixie County. He also noted that he and Dr.
Hank Stoddard were working on getting
historical pictures of the airport during WWII
framed and hung at the terminal as well.
Dr. Hank also spoke to the guests. A veteran
of WWII, Dr. Hank had the privilege to have
met Thaddeus Parker at Camp Pendleton, CA
during Marine Corp training. That was over 65
years ago and Dr. Hank's memory of Parker is

still clear .as the young Parker made an
impression on all who met him. Dr. Hank never
would have dreamed that one day he would
move to the hometown of a true war hero.
Parker was born and raised in Dixie County
and was the son of Alexander Parker. He
enlisted in the Navy as .a Pharmacist Mate 3rd
Class and received four declarations for his
heroism; the Navy Cross, Silver Star, Purple
Heart and Presidents Citation.
On July 20, 1943, Parker was killed while
trying to get three wounded Marines to safety.
Parker managed to get two of the,soldiers to
safety, but was shot down while trying to rescue
the third. Parker, along with the third Marine,
died on the battlefield.
For his bravery and service to his country,
the Navy named a destroyer after Parker. the SS
Thaddeus Parker, commissioned less than a year
after his death. He would be the first enlisted
man to receive such an honor A painting of the
SS Thaddeus Parker can be seen in the Dixie
County Commissioners Room at the courthouse.
Painted and donated b\ DudleN Griner, it stands
as a reminder to us all of the sacrifices our
hometov.n men and %omen made for us all.
Dot also shared a portion of the video tape
the WWII club made while e attending the
unveiling of the Florida monument. She
continued her talk with tales of some of the Tri-
County veterans experienced during the war; a
sober reminder of what war is really like.
Many thanks go to Dot and her "cre%'" of,
veterans for bringing this piece of Dixie history
to the forefront and especially for their sacrifices
and those of their comrades.
The Dixie County Historical Society
continues to be Dixie's curator. Their next
meeting will be held on January 16, 2006 at the
Dixie County Cultural Center at 6:30 PM.: For
more information you may call the Center at
352-542-0047, leave a message or stop by on
Friday from 9:00am to 12:00 noon.
