Medicare Part D Presentation To Be


Held In Dixie
On Sunday, November
20th from 1:30-2:30pm at the
Holy Cross Catholic Church in
Cross City, SHINE (Serving
Health Insurance Needs of
Elders), a volunteer division of
the Florida Department of
Elder Affairs and SSA (Social
Security Administration) will
be giving a joint presentation
on Medicare Part D:
Prescription Drug Plan.
Enrollment for the plans
begins November 15, 2005 and
runs through May 15, 2006.
You can call 1-800-Medicare
(1-800-633-4227) for
personalized help or call 1-
800-262-2243 for your local
SHINE volunteer site or for
help over the phone or go
online at www.medicare.gov.
This decision takes careful
thought. Consider all of your
options before making a
decision.
All stand alone drug plans
in Florida are good in all
counties. If you go online,
enter your drugs in the Drug
Formulary. There will be a list
of plans that your drugs are in.
Starting November 15th, you
can take that list of plans that
specify PDP (for the, stand
alone prescription drug plans)
and enter them into the
Compare Drug Plans on the
Medicare website. Also, in the
back of your Medicare and
You 2006 booklet, the drug
plans and their companies are
listed 'with their 1-800
numbers. You can call and
request information be sent to
you or ask about your drugs
specifically. Be sure to ask
about the deductible, monthly
premium, cost of drugs and if
your favorite pharmacy will be
taking that plan. Not all drugs
are covered on all plans.
Those that are dual
enrolled in both Medicare and
Medicaid should have received
a letter on yellow paper by
now. In that letter, a specific
drug plan is listed. If you do
not choose a plan for yourself
by December 31, 2005,
Medicaid will auto-enroll you
in that plan. If after January 1,
2006 you feel that the plan
does not meet your drug needs,
you can switch plans. You are
the only group allowed to do
this.


County November 20th


Extra Help to pay for the
deductible, premium and to get
reduced drug costs is available
to those that qualify. If you
are single and have an income
below $14,355 with assets of
less than $11,500 or are a
couple with income below
$19,245 with assets less than
$23,000 you may qualify.
Your home and vehicles do not
count toward your assets.
Please see a SHINE volunteer
for a SSA Pre-qualifying
application.
Fraud is a concern with all
the new information being sent


out. Do not give out your
Medicare card number, your
Social Security Card number,
your bank account number or
any credit card numbers. If
you are interested in a drug
plan, you will be the one to
contact those companies that
have contracts with Medicare.
No one should call you or
come to your door to try to sell
you a plan. When in doubt,
call Medicare at 1-800-633-
4227 or the Elder Help Line at
1-800-262-2243 or the
Chiefland Senior Center at
(352)493-6709.

Dinner Honors Farm Owners


for Environmental Stewardship

Jr.. Lacey, and Trer.
A large cro\%d cheered farm o owners tor their superior en% ironmental ste hardship at a Gilchrist
Counts dinner on Nov. 1. The agricultural producers maintain operations in the Santa Fe River Basin
and have met verifiable standards of excellence in resource management.
Held at Mark DeChamplain's Heaven's Gate Farm near Trenton, the event was sponsored by the
County Alliance for Responsible Stewardship (CARES) and the Suwannee River Partnership. The
partnership consists of more than 50 local, regional, state and national agencies and city and county
commissions, as well as private organizations and businesses. CARES was initiated by the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation and the partnership to highlight the good management of natural resources
by farmers and ranchers as they maintain food and fiber production for us all.
The Nov. 1 dinner was the third annual CARES dinner organized for the Santa Fe River Basin.
Originally launched in 1999 as a voluntary initiative for the Suwannee River Basin, the CARES
program is being expanded to other areas of the state. The Suwannee River Partnership model is also
-being applied in most other regions of Florida and will facilitate the recognition' of comparable
achievements by farmers and ranchers in those locations. See "CARES"page 5.

The above map shows the proposed spoilage site and pipeline route for the McGriff channel dredging
project.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last week Congressman Allen Boyd was thrilled to report that an additional $450,000.00 had
been secured for the McGriff Channel dredging project via the 2006 Conference Report on. the
Energy & Water Development Appropriations Act legislation.
It has been nine years since the dredging project was first proposed. The McGriff Pass channel'is
located at the. mouth of the Suwannee River and is a favorite passageway of fishermen to the Gulf
waters. The permitting process has been long and tedious due to the waterway being
environmentally sensitive. Just last month the permitting for the spoilage site was granted.
In 2002, Congressman Boyd secured $2 million for the dredging project. While the initial
funding was sufficient three years ago, costs have risen and additional funding was needed. As a
member of the House Appropriations Committee, Boyd was able to secure those extra dollars giving
the project a clear path towards completion.
"This is an important development for the people of Dixie County," said Congressman Boyd.
'The additional funds will help to begin the dredging project a project that has been a long time
coming. I want to thank the community for their patience. It is through their support that: the
dredging of the McGriff Channel will come to fruition."

Those who have worked diligently on the project over the years are grateful to the Congressman
for his support as well as the support of the Army Corps of Engineers and Suwannee River .Water
Management District, but most of all to the late Bill Miller who never gave up on the project, "'
Once the project bid is finalized and discharge lines put in place, it should take only 3-4.weeks
for the dredging itself.

,Veterans Day, 2005
It seemed like last Friday was more than "just another Veterans
Day." I've .been out of the military since 1956, I never turned in
many meritorious service of the sort that earns medals for heroism,
Sand I never expected to receive any accolades for putting in a
S couple years of what was essentially routine service to our country.
SNonetheless, a lot of people thanked me, personally, for serving
in the military, as though I'd done something extraordinary. And I
|know that the many veterans of my acquaintance who were far
|more deserving of such appreciation were treated at least as well.
I know that they were, because that was .the frame of mind in
:our community on November 11th, 2005. Somehow, all the polls
: that supposedIl indicate a growing animosity toward our efforts in
: the War on Terror were not validated by what I saw last Friday.
Perhaps the pollsters didn't call anyone in our little corner of the
plafiet. In any event, there were no protest signs, and none of the
media news teams with their video cameras that would have
_gathered to an anti-war protest like flies to.. .well, you know what
: draws flies.
. Instead. ,there were citizens lined up for the parade, taking
"pictures, %saving at some of us old vets as well as the younger ones.
Ilt was;-the first year I didn't march. I rode with the DAV in a
: WorIld War II Jeep because of a sore knee that comes back now
j and then to remind me of my big moment as a high school football
player.
That evening, I got on the Internet and read about some place
in Maine where a Veterans Day parade bypassed a cemetery where
: they usually stopped to honor those who had died in service. It
seems a mob of protesters were gathered there in hopes of creating
a disturbance. I have no doubt that the veterans in that parade, even
the ones in my age bracket, could have readily dispersed such a
motley crew, however our brethren chose to be law-abiding and
avoided the confrontation.
I'd al ways thought of Maine as being'a nice place, and I'm sure
,^ it is. Maybe it's just too close to Canada. Or Massachusetts.
' Whatever.
According to what I've heard, ABC-TV observed Veterans Day
by interviewing Cindy Sheehan on a morning program. Sort of
;: , deserving?
And if Cindy-poo isn't bad enough, how about former Marine
SStaff Sergeant Jimmy Massey? Please understand that I have the
utmost respect for the Marines, but a yo-yo turns up even in the
'' best outfits every now and then, and my. only question about
Massey is, how in the hell did he ever make staff sergeant?
Massey was released for a post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
condition; and I'm not disputing that he has it. A lot of guys do,
but the way you deal with that is treatment. The military hospitals
and the VA are equipped to provide that.
However, instead of seeking treatment, Massey has been going
around peddling wild tales about how our military murders
civilians in Iraq. His allegations have been proven false-as usually
1 turns out to be the case with war protesters. But he got plenty of ink
and air time before the major media finally got shy of providing
him with a forum.
It's a sad commentary on our culture that we tolerate a media
that consistently tries to undermine our war effort and Washington
politicians who treat war as a political issue. I can remember when
patriotism was a bi-partisan concept.
Nonetheless, it was encouraging to see one's neighbors turn out
for the parade and the ceremony that followed. The participation of
the ROTC unit from the high school was another big plus.
It would seem that patriotism is alive and well here in the real
'wvold=--an encouraging sign in these uncertain times.


Letter To The Editor
Growing up in Dixie county is the highlight of my youthful
days, the atmosphere, the neighborly attitude that residents have.
The way of life.... priceless.
But, it is a sad time in Dixie for a lot of people that reside in
there, one of the most loved people in Dixie has died... Ernest
Wayne Albritton, my father.
Most knew him as the man that could fix anything, from cars
to water wells and all in-between. I am writing this to all his
friends and people that knew him and loved him, to thank them
for being his friend. To S.H. forall that he has done for my dad in
the past. The family will not forget you. To Higginbotham's store,
for always having something for him to fix, and for the friendship
they had.
I am at a loss for words for describing him, I can only know
that he was loved and will be missed more and more as time goes
by.
We will see him in heaven!!!
His middle son,
RANDY JOE ALBRITTON

might be a sign of more seri-

A study by Medicare
Today showed that all
Medicare beneficiaries who
are not receiving other fed- ,
eral health assistance could
save an average of nearly
$700 a year in out-of-pocket
spending on drug costs and
pay just $32 a month for cov-
erage. With recent reviews
of the Medicare-approved
drug plans indicating that
monthly costs could be $20
or less, many seniors will
see even greater savings.

Buddy Martin's

Weekly Sports

Commentary
Guess who's pulling for
Auburn now?*
('Headline written by Sieve Spurrier)
COLUMBIA, S.C. He said he left Florida
because he wanted to write new history for
South Carolina football. Now Steve Spurrier
writes headlines for us, too.
The headline above was suggested in his
press conference Saturday after he coached his.
-Gamecocks to a startling 30-22 upset of his old
.school -- the first South Carolina 'victory o\er the Florida
Gators since 1939.
Pretty good history: A record fifth straight
Southeastern Conference victory, no worse than second in.
the eastern division and the most points ever scored by
Carolina against the Gators.
Not a bad headline,, either. After all, it was Carolina,
and not Florida, which needed Georgia to lose Saturday
night. That, coupled with another defeat of the Bulldogs
next week by Kentucky, would send the Gamecocks to the
SEC title game.
A little far out? Perhaps, but Spurner has been living
in the land of the Far Out.
As he predicted to me on Fnday -- "I've played them
both and I think Auburn is a better team" -- the Tigers
knocked off Georgia Saturday night.
What might have been for Flonda!
What snill could be for South Carolina!
Well, OK, it's unlikely Kentucky is going to beat the
Bulldogs, but...
The man continues to amaze us with his football
wizardry
Once he landed in the Low Country, weeded out about
a dozen of the problem players, found himself a promising
quarterback in Blake Mitchell and coached up a basketball
player named Sidney Rice as a wide receiver, the 01' Ball
Coach was off and runmng. And the rest of the league may
soon be chasing after him.
Though he claimed he hardly every mentioned
"Florida" to his players all week; his Gator roots riun deep.
He may wear garnet and black, bit his heart snll pumps
orange and blue.
"I still love the Gators and I always will," he said "But
this is my team now."
During the past week, he took in only a couple of
Florida journalists and gave no inteniews to anyone else.
including the local media and ESPN. Then he tried not to
get caught up in the emotion
To wit:
-He seemed to wear his visor a little lower than usual
and said med not to look over at the other sideline much
during the game.
--He prearranged it with Urban Meyer that they should
avoid shaking hands at m-field after the game so as to
.avoid what he called "the media circus." So they
met briefly off to the side.
Standing there at midfield, Spurrier told the Jefferson-
Pilot interviewer that he had "mixed emotions about this
one." He had successfully ducked under the radar with the
media, but the competitor inside of him was thumbing his
nose at those who didn't immediately embrace the idea of


his return to his alma mater.
It was still a bit rowdy at midfield as his players
doused htm with ice and several'of the Gamecock players
tried to lift him to their shoulders.
"They don't know yet that you aren't supposed to do
that," Spurrier said, "except when you win
conference championships. We've got to
coach 'em up on that."
This mas vintage Ball Coach -- the
way he won at Duke, the way he won in
the USFL with the Tampa Bay Bandits.
With guile and guts._ "I tell our
players we are defying. football logic
because we're last in the SEC in rushing
and we're next to last in rushing defense,"
Spurrier admitted.
It has been a charmed Steve life for
Spurner the past five weeks. The ball bounced his way
again Saturday and he admitted it.
"We got some extremely good breaks," he said. "That's,
the way it's been. Every long pass by the other team seems
to go just off their fingertips OWe get Chris Tucker's
interception"
A tipped pass returned by big Tucker (6-1, 2S88) to the
Gator 5 was the first break. With just over a minute left. the
officials called an illegal substitution by Flonda for having
12 players in the huddle, thus giving Carolina a first down
and a chance to kill the clock
He was most grateful for the last call, because "Chns
Leak may have taken them downfield and they might have
scored and gone for two and made it."
Typically of Spurrier, he couldn't lei things pass
without a little dig at what looked to be a slow-motion UF
offense. Down by II and needing two scores with under
seven minutes, the Gators eschewed the no-huddle and it
seemed there was no sense of urgency. They ran the ball
three times in 12 plays before kicking a field goal. What
was Meyer thinking'?
"Seems like Flonda kind of helped us kill the clock by
running the ball," Spurner said, tweaking his foe just a
little.
He also made an off-handed remark about this being
"our easiest win," but not so much to downgrade the Gators
as to point out that in none of the previous four SEC
victories had they even led at halftime as they did Saturday.
As much of a gentleman as he was about beating his
old school, the competitor inside of him was screaming out
"Take that!" to all those who thought perhaps he'd lost a
step as a coach.
There's a lid on exactly what took place dunng the
days immediately following the firing of Ron Zook a year
ago and even though he said it turned out "best for all,"
there are some people who feel that Bernie Machen might
not have shown proper respect to the architect of "The
Swamp" and all the mythology that has been built with it.
And Athletics Director Jeremy Foley didn't exactly send a
limo for Spumer, either.
Maybe Steve just wanted a chance to turn down the
job. He deserved'that.
Some people who once resided in Gainesville and are
close to the South Carolina football program -- %ery close --
felt a measure of redemption for beating the Gators.
"(Bleep) Foley," said one.
For those of you who think Spurrier lost his swagger
and left his groove in Washington,' D. C., think again. The
01' Ball Coach still has a little ire in his belly.

"CAiRES"
Continued from page 1


Florida Farm Buteau President Carl B. Loop
Jr. said the rationale behind CARES is a simple
one. "Our goal is to have the farmers recognized
by the general public," he explained. "The
partnership is providing results. We have to
make sure the general public knows that."
Loop added that "Incentive .based programs
are the best way to achieve sound environmental
management."
Florida Commissioner of Agriculture
Charles H. Bronson urged the audience to
consider the overall contributions farm owners
make to environmental stewardship. "Farmers
are not the only ones who have a role in
protecting the environment," he noted. "Anyone
who owns a rooftop in Florida adds to the
problems of water quality in our state."
Bronson pledged that the state agriculture
department will be able to implement Best


Management Plans (BMPs) for farm operations.
throughout the state by the end of 2006. BMPsI
create the scientific blueprint for state-of-the-art.
natural resource management strategies and;
offer the agriculturist an opportunity, to improve'
existing systems on a voluntary basis. -
Farm owners who have met the standards oFr
excellence required by the program receive .a.
CARES certificate and earn the privilege. of-
posting a sign on their properties.
The following farms received a CARES
designation at the dinner: L.R. Thomas Farm
(Gilchrist County), Sanchez Farms (Dixie
County), Corbin Farms (Gilchrist and Levy
counties), Quincey Farm (Levy County) and R.
and T. Dicks Farms (Union County).
Congratulations to you all!

Happy 10th Anniversary
Wind Of The Spirit

There are some who can recall the tent
Yes, God's Word had been sent
A plan for God's house was made
And the tent soon began to fade
A place to worship for peculiar people of every generation
With training for Christ-like salvation
A place for the devil to simmer
But also a place to welcome the sinner
God, He chose "the two"
To build Wind of the Spirit for me and you
The two focused on what God chose them to do
And critics have hushed two by two
Year by year, month by month results have grown
And God's Glory has been shown
So Happy Anniversary this 10th year
And "the two" you are both precious and dear
Yes, 10 years and it began in God's time
For Wind of the Spirit are His branches grafted to the vine
This 10th year celebration in 2005
Wind of the Spirit is grove. ing and ali' e
And es God las pro'.ided from A-Z
S" \Vh\ ke een hliae our ov.n bab.. onike.
From the North' c th. Ea-t iand \\ cst
Wind of the Spirit hlas recer. ed God's best
But do recall it1 .i All God's Plan
How'Wind of the Spirit began
On Highway 19, Lot 8 in Old Town
Do come and see why it's the best all around

BIRTHDAY


Gator

Love,

Maina, Shawn,

Ashley, Scott &

Brittany


Looks Like We Made It
John T. and Virginia M. Henry will celebrate their 64th
Wedding Anniversary this November 17th. A marriage that would
not last, so they said. They met October 3, 1941 and married 7
weeks later in Sin City, Alabama.
He was from the South, she was from the North.
He was a Baptist, she was a Catholic.
He was a soldier, her daddy said no.
War was declared 20 days later.
Well we made it 64 years and we're trying for more.


Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"David and Goliath"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say In effect,
God was saying to the people, go ahead and organize the move of
the Spirit if you are determined. Legislate the Gifts of the Spirit,
try to harness the power of God into one big ecclesiastical system
if you think you can. But before it's over, I'll make'you so sick of
what you have created, you'll wish you had never heard of Saul.
But they said, "We want to be like all the nations: and that our
,King may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles."
I, the day of the Lord, say so God gave them their King, and in
His grace, God even blessed Saul and gave him victory over the
Philistines (which represent the Devil and his horde of demons).
But when God sent Saul against the Amalekites (which represent
the flesh) we find Saul holding back the part he liked. And God
rejected Saul from the King, furthermore, Saul was no longer in
contact with God's prophetic ministry.
I, the Day of the Lord, say For it says (15:35) that Samuel came
no more to see Saul until the day of his death. What a picture of the
Pentecostal movement! For a time, even after they organized, God
blessed them and gave them victory over demons and devils. But
they had their "Agags" which they wanted to save back. They
would go so far, and no farther.
I, the Day of the Lord, say But thus saith the Lord thy
redeemer, the mighty One of Israel, even now in the midst of all
the confusion of Saul's order, I yet have my prophetic ministry.
For ye have not brought my prophets into your bondage, and they
shall yet speak my Word, saith the Lord. For I have commanded
them not to mourn longer over the old order, nor for the systems of
the past that I have rejected. But there is a young lad in the land,'
watching over the sheep, protecting them from the lion and the
bear by the power of my spirit. And my prophetic ministry shall
bring him a word concerning the throne, and he shall be anointed
by my Spirit, even with that Kingly anointing for power and
authority and for governing my people. Tho he be small, despise
him not, for he shall rise to great heights, for I have searched his
inward parts and purified him, and he is mine saith the Lord.
Hallelujah to God!
I, the Day -of the Lord, say please stay up with me. Continued
next week.


WILLARD MELVIN CORBIN III

All human wisdom is
summed up in two words:
wait and hope.
-Alexandre Dumas

The Word Made

Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say the word, as to
the letter, is written by
appearances and correspondences,
7 and that thus there is a spiritual
- sense contained in each
expression, in which sense truth
appears in its light, while the sense
of the letter is in shade.
I, the son of man, say Lest
therefore the member of the New
Church should wander, like those
of the old,. in the shade of the
literal sense of the Word,
particularly on the subjects of
heaven and hell, and of a life after
death, and on this of the coming of
the Lord, it has pleased the Lord to
open the sight of my spirit, and
thus to let me into the spiritual
world, permitting me to converse
with spirit and angels, who have
departed out of the natural world,
but now they live as a man in a
substantial body, and in a far more
perfect state, if they go among the.
blessed, than when they lived
'. before in a material body. ,
I, the son of man, say to
prevent man from plunging deeper
into this false opinion of the
destruction of the visible heaven
and the habitable earth, and
thereby of the spiritual world, in
consequence of- that ignorance
which has given rise tor so much
naturalism and atheism from
spreading, as mortification in
I limb, through mans external mind,
whence his speech originates, just
as they have already begun to
affect and take root in the interior
rational mind, especially among
the learned, I have been enjoined
by the Lord to, tell some of the
various circumstances of what I
have seen and heard concerning
Heaven and Hell, and the Last
SJudgment ..
S I,,the son of man, say Man has
two states of thought, external and
internal. He is in the external state
in the natural world, and the
internal state, in the spiritual.
These two states of thought form a
one %% ith the good, but not with the
wicked. The nature and' quality of
a man's internal state are seldom
discoverable in the world, because
he learns from infancy to be moral
and rational, and loves to appear
so: but in the spiritual world its
quality is clearly discovered, for
he is then a spirit, and the spirit is
the internal man.
1, the son of man, say I have
been permitted to be in the
spiritual world, and they're to
behold the nature and quality of
the internal man in people. In the
spiritual world the Jews are less
aware than any other people of
their being in the spiritual world,
believing themselves to be still
ht ing in the natural world and'
because they are altogether
external men, and do not at all
think of religion from an interior
principle Mlore: about the Jews
next week. Love you.


Thank You

In Memory Of J. D. Walker
November 17, 1965 August 24, 1996
Lordy, Lordy look who
would have been forty! I would
have loved to see the smile on
your face when I put your
o picture in the Advocate this
S-week and tell all your lady
friends you have hit the big
"40".
Life, as I know it has
changed so much since your
30th Birthday.
Life, a word that holds so
much meaning, yet can stop
any second.
You have missed your son
and daughter growing up. You missed Dwight's first truck, his first
prom and his high school graduation. He is a super hunter, bow or
gun he brings them home! He isn't a bad fisherman either; he has
your smile and shy ways. I see a lot of you in him.
Chelsea has your eyes and smile. Needless to say she is a very
beautiful young woman now! All grown up and doing great. I
know she is going to be a wonderful mother.
I can't wait to be a great grandma. I know you would have been
a good grandpa, you always loved babies. I know you would be
very proud of your kids, as we all are.
Yes once again I will be carrying flowers to your grave instead
of baking a cake on you Birthday and wishing it were me instead
of you, btt we don't have the power to change life, we can only
live it the best we can. We celebrate the good times and with God's
grace we get through the bad times. Everyone who knew and loved
you misses you too.
Love Always,
Mama, Dwight, Chelsea, Brandi, John, Jacob and Daddy


Central Baptist News
This past week a team from Central Baptist went and
conducted Revival Services on the island of Cayman Brac,
Cayman Islands. The result of our effort brought forth a good
number of professions of faith. I thank God for the opportunity to
minister where God opens the door. The invitation to come back
to Cayman Brac, as well as to Grand Cayman and Jamaica is a
very good possibility. Pray for Central Baptist to stay on God's
Firing Line.
Awana sign-up begins Wednesday 5-8 PM and also Saturday,
12-2 PM. Bring your children and sign them up for this powerful
program.
SThe radio program of Central Baptist may be delayed in its
broadcast due to our dear friend, Reverend Ron Cason, going to be
with the Lord. Pray for the Cason family.
We at Central pray that you will have a wonderful
Thanksgiving. Come and join us for a Thanksgiving Service and

IJ DID YOU KNOW?
sy Researchers have used microbes found in cow dung to create
electricity. And experts say if the technique is employed on a mass

scale, it could supply all the power we'll ever need. The method is
simple. The microbes break down cellulose in the forage cows eat,
releasing electrons. The electrons are harnessed and used to power
batteries. Experiment were conducted at Ohio State University,
Professor Ann Christie says: "Cow waste is a very promising,
cheap and plentiful, fuel source." The methane gas that cows emit
as a byproduct of their digestive process is already used to generate
electrical power. Many farmers use it to run machinery and lights.
However, converting methane to electricity is far more expensive
and less efficient than the microbe approach. (Sun)
Self-driving cars are about to hit the market in Europe, and
they're expected to be on the road in America shortly thereafter.
The first of the space-age vehicles is being manufactured by
Vauxhall, (vauxhall.co.uk) and it comes with a computerized
system called Traffic Assist that uses laser beams to monitor road
and traffic jams. The lasers, mounted in the headlights and
bumpers, can "see" up to 150 yards ahead. They monitor white
lines to keep the car in its proper lane and the speed of the car ih
front to prevent rear-end collisions. They can even "read" road
signs and negotiate turns. The information is transmitted to a
computer, which controls the car's steering wheel, brakes and
speedometer. The device can be overridden by the driver so you
ultimately remain in command of the vehicle if you want to. (Sun)_.

Hot Musical Group
Musical groups have always been big and big business. I'm
sure most of you have heard the money numbers of how much the
hot rock stars make today. And you may know that back in the 30s:
and 40s the big band leaders were equally successful. Record sales
boomed for the first time and the big road tours started. Oh,
musicians have always been on the road, ever since medieval.
times, but now they were booking dates in advance and pre-sellingi
out dance dates and even some concerts. Today the dance halls are
pretty much gone, but the concert tour reigns supreme.
Yes, musical groups have always been big business. But did
you know that at least one major university all but owes its very
existence to a musical group? It's true. The few original educators
that were dedicated to the project had nothing to offer but their'
knowledge. They did manage to get some old dilapidated military
barracks donated, and through some hard work by the staff and
students, turn them into dormitories for the students. They held
scrap metal drives and used the money to buy books. And the
students had plenty of scrap metal to give!"
But the music teacher at the school, Mr. George L. White, had
an idea. He decided to organize a small group of singers to put on
some concerts and raise a few pennies, nickels and dimes for the
school. At first they sang some of the more popular tunes of the:
day. But audiences were small and returns were tiny. They played:
several dates, but not much happened, really. It was disappointing.
But in one concert one of the singers decided to sing a song that his
mother used to sing to him. And that started something new. The
r audience responded and wanted more. So they sang more.
I Before long word got out about this curious form of music and
they were being invited to perform it everywhere. These songs had
never been heard in New York, or Washington, then even at the
White House. Their popularity was such that within two years the;
group of five Americans was making a grand tour of Europe and
singing in front of Queen Victoria and the other crown heads of
Europe. At one time they were making enough money in one
week to support the entire University for six months. And that's
exactly what they did.
But there are two things that you should know about this rather
remarkable musical group. One is that the very fine Fisk
University probably would not exist today if it weren't for the Fisk
Jubilee Singers. And second, a grand a beautiful style of music
may have been lost.
Remember I told you that the students at Fisk had a lot of metal
to donate to the metal drives. Well, It's a Little Known Fact that's
because every one of them was donating their chains, handcuffs
and leg irons. You see, they were all former slaves. And once the
slave plantations broke up after the Civil War, and blacks started
migrating across the nation, one thing was almost lost. If it were
not for the Fisk Jubilee Singer performing, writing them down, and
making them popular everywhere from the White House to the
palaces of Europe, we probably would have lost most of the
American Negro Gospel music that we treasure so much today.

with Commissioner Valentine and

posting of the hearing on the property
and the 100 year flood plain; LDR's.
Mr. Lander read a letter from Scott
Koons, NCFRPC, which confirmed
f that the information that was given by
Billy Keen was correct; this property is
, not in the 100 year Flood Plain and can
a be changed by re-zoning from ESA-3

r the matter, Mr. Lander informed the

outside of the six weeks time frame
from the date of advertisement in the
Dixie County Advocate.
Chairman Hays stated that the
approval is null and void and must be
re-advertised and come back before the

DAVID & CONNIE BISHOP,
SUWANNEE PROPERTY OWNERS
Deputy Clerk, Carla Downing
informed the Board that the Bishops
had cancelled.
ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR
Arthur Bellot came before the
Board and discussed a hand delivered
letter from the Town of Horseshoe
Beach. The letter was addressed to Joe
Hubert Allen, Clerk of Circuit Court,
and hand-delivered to Carla Downing
on September 13'", 2005 at 4:30 PM. It
informs that the Town of Horseshoe
r Beach has established a Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA) as
provided .for in Chapter 163 Florida
Statutes. They are providing this
t information for use in computing the
Board of County Commissioners'
f contribution toward funding the Town
of Horseshoe Beach CRA for the 2005-
06 FY. The Town of Horseshoe Beach
CRA is requesting that payment be'
received by January 1, 2006 in the
amount of $149,795.
Mr. Bellot stated that we already
have a balanced budget for the 2005-
2006 FY. If this is done, the TRIM
process would have to begin over.
Direction is needed from the Board.
He informed the Board that Cindy Dey,
Finance Officer, and her assistant,
Margaret Ward are in Sarasota at the
Clerk's Conference and due back
tomorrow afternoon. It would take all
weekend and into the first of the week
to go over the budget.
r Commissioner Valentine inquired
as to why we are just now being
presented with this.
Arthur stated that is a good
question. The FDOR has been
contacted and they have no opinion on
the matter.
Commissioner Hays stated that all
BCC Department Heads and
Constitutional Officers know to have
their proposed budgets in by June; my
opinion is that we challenge it.
Commissioner Valentine and
Commissioner Land agreed with
Commissioner Hays to challenge the
request.
Attorney Lander discussed the
CRA process and the county budget
process. He stated that the county
budget process begins every year in
June. The county is required to have a
balanced budget deadline. At this
stage of the process, several days away
to finalize, this county can not take
$149,000 plus out of the equation. Not
having this information poses a
disservice to this county. As legal
council, it is not technically or feasible
to be properly entertained.
Commissioner Hays stated that
this county provides services' to the
Horseshoe Beach area by EMS,
Sheriff, Road Department, etc... and
this would affect each of these
services.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Land and
carried to turn the matter over to Joey
Lander, County Attorney, for response.
GEORGE EDWARDS, BRIDGE
POINT AT JENA
Mr. George Edwards presented to
the Board a letter regarding PDR
general information for Bridge Point at
Jena: The letter stated ".....the purpose
of this project is to provide 500
housing units with marina, commercial
areas, a public park and a public
parking area for boat trailers at the site,
which is westerly of the SR358 Bridge
into Steinhatchee and southerly of the
Steinhatchee River...... All utilities
will comply with the Department of
Health codes in anticipation of the
county sewer plan being studied for
our area. We expect to hook up to the
county sewer project as soon as it is
available..."
Arthur Bellot spoke about a 2004
letter from Scott Koons, NCFRPC,
regarding DRI.
Attorney Lander stated that the
DRI .says that over 250 units become
the developers' responsibility. Once
they pull permits and reach the
threshold of DRI they have to go thru a
process,.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
July 1, 2005 was the implementation of
the Growth Management Bills. He
stated that he recently attended 14
hours at a workshop regarding water
and impact fees. Also, he commented
that ,this Board had scheduled a
workshop to discuss these issues and
due to increment weather it was
cancelled.
Mr. Edwards stated that the water


company has said they will supply
water to the project..
Commissioner Lamb informed Mr.
Edwards that the Board is not against
the project, but we have concerns.
Commissioner Hays asked for Mr.
Edwards to explain about his plans for
sewer.
Mr. Edwards stated that he has a
plan for a package plant. The letter
explains about the sewer.
Commissioner Valentine inquired
about the 2 acre boat ramp area.
Mr. Edwards stated that the boat
ramp is the number one thing. If the
property is ever sold it becomes part of
the exchange. "It will be the best park
in the state, as far as I 'see it".
Mr. Lander informed the Board
that "Mr. Edwards has worked with
Frank Darabi and the state
departments. I feel like they are


following guidelines".
Road issues were discussed.
Mr. Edwards stated that 500
sounds like a lot, but technically about
1/3 will be in use.
Motion by Commissioner
Valentine, seconded by Commissioner
Driggers and carried to approve Bridge
Point at Jena Master Plan.

DISTRICT MANAGER

RIVER FAIR AND LIVESTOCK
ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
Mr. Gary Pinner appeared before
the Board and informed them that the
Suwannee River Fair and Livestock
Association has applied for a grant to
build a new facility.due to the increase
in participants. At the present, nothing
is handicapped accessible and this is
badly needed. He stated that he will be
going to the Tri-County Area
Governments and Schools for support,
also. He requested a letter of support
and a pledge of $10,000. The
application is due October 1", 2005.
Commissioner Driggers stated he
is in, support, but inquired if it would
void the county's application in
support of the Dixie County
Horsemen's Association.
Arthur Bellot stated that it would
be, coming from the same pot, but it is
questionable as to effecting our
application. Matching grants are more
likely to be approved if they have a
higher percentage of local match.
Commissioner Land inquired
when his Association would want the
money.
Mr. Pinner stated that for now they
only need the letter of support pledging
the $10,000. The money would only
be requested if the grant is approved.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the request by
resolution. This will be Resolution No.
05-33.

fathers with daughters and sons, husbands and wives and families ride off
together on this memorable occasion.

were some beautiful handcrafted items from some of the Levy County
Horse Club's own members, as well as items that were donated by the

"Where Do You Start?"
Where do you start?
What do you say?
One glance at debris
Leads you only to pray.
Sights of utter destruction
Are visible on every block,
It would be so easy
To shut your eyes and not look.
Each house has a story
Monster oaks tell their tale,
Of sheer power and force
Massive roots that did fail.
Dwellings of brick and of wood
Were destroyed by a wind,
Neither steel beams nor concrete
Not a one could defend.
Massive force that destroyed things
That took years to create,
Raise questions for millions
Unsure of their fate.
For me, I decided to open my eyes
To listen and pray as my heart is torn
To do what I can and not to scorn.
There are thousands of families
Who think they have no hope,
But God tells me to share
One way they can cope.
Fore Christ in their heart
Puts real life in today,
Thus I remembered what
I am supposed to say.
As I walk down the streets
And see the despair,
My Jesus walks with me
And directs me to care.
The wrecked cars and houses
So hard to replace,
Turn my thoughts to the people
No matter their race.
A pat on the back, cold water and bread,
Some sweat and tears
And a roof overhead.
Are all outward signs that you
Are beginning to see,
God's got our attention
He says, "Turn To Me!"
So as you watch images
Flash by on the screen,
And listen to reports
From "On The Scene."
Please ask yourself the question
Just how would you feel
If it was you in need of a meal?
Or meds, or clothes, a job, a car
Suddenly Florida to Mississippi
Doesn't seem too far.
So reach out to our neighbors to let them know
God cares and through you
His endless love can show.
There are lots of ways
To show you care,
A sacrifice of IdVe
Time or ni one, ,'hat you feel you can bare.
Bottom line, please.don't just sit back
In yodr, lazy-boy chair,
Do something to show your support
And then offer a prayer.

This is one of the many quilts shown at the Springhouse
Quilters quilt show on November 11 and 12.
The Springhouse quilter's quilt show is now history. There
were 150 quilted items on display for the 2-day show and
approximately 675 700 individuals attended the quilt show. The
weather was perfect and quilters came from far and near to visit
the show. Springhouse quilters were pleased that so many
decided to visit the show. Category winners will be featured in
future articles.
The viewers choice award was won by Joan Gambell plus
she also received a first place in her category and received the
best-of show award. There will be follow-up articles on the
winners in the show in future articles.
Springhouse members are now planning on resting some,
catching up on some of their unfinished projects, and celebrating
the holiday season. 2006 looms ready and waiting for exciting
projects and workshops for Springhouse quilters.
Springhouse quilters express their appreciation for the
support of the many individuals who participated in the show.
Without each of you, our show would not have been a success.
For information on Springhouse quilters, contact Anna
Gilliam, 463 7922, or Lois Scott, 463-2207.
