By Terri Langford
Employees of the Dixie County School District voted "yes" on


an 11.3% financial package presented by the School Board which
includes salary increases, additional health insurance contributions
and a one time bonus.
Earlier this year employees were notified of a 28% increase in
insurance premiums, amounting to approximately $422,000.00
district-wide. Superintendent Dennis Bennett noted that before
negotiations that figure was around $500,000. The Board knew
that this increase would be a huge burden to the employees and
made it their priority to figure a way to pay the difference. "We are
very pleased to have been able to pick up the increase in
premiums," stated Bennett. "We know how important it is for
families to have insurance these days."
Bennett noted that rate increases can be found nationwide.
District-wide there has been an increase in illnesses and

Commission Highlights


The Commission Room was filled to capacity at last week's Board Meeting, most there to hear about a
proposed boat ramp in Jena.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners held
their evening meeting on
Thursday, No'ember 17th at
6:00 PM. The agenda drew a
standing-room only crowd
with a presentation leading to
disproval being voiced by
many in the audience.
Before the "hot topic" of
the evening, the
Commissioners approved the
re-zoning of the old Moore's
Marina property located off


US 19 next to the Suwannee
Gables Restaurant. New
owners W.C. and Tracy Mills
will be using the property for a
car lot, small flea market and
odds & ends. The re-zoning
had to be reissued due to the
length of time that the property
had been vacated.
Next to address the
Commission was Earl Green of
the Steinhatchee/Taylor
County Boat Ramp
Committee. Green is part of a
group of local residents who


have been looking for a sight
to build a public boat ramp that
would be utilized by Dixie and
Taylor residents alike. He
noted that the committee had
been working diligently for the
past 8 months researching the
possibilities of a boat ramp that
would provide access to the
Gulf from the Steinhatchee
River as well as ample
parking.
Green stated that it had
been difficult and challenging
due to much of the property


along the riverbanks being
environmentally sensitive and
the fact that so much of the
property had already been
bought,
The committee has found a
9-acre parcel with 125 feet of
river frontage and is located a
short distance upstream from
the bridge on the Dixie County
side. The owner of the
property is willing to sell and
the Suwannee River Water
Management District has given
them a positive preliminary
review. The Taylor County
Commission has also given
their thumbs-up on the
proposed project.
Adjacent homeowners to
the site have not given their
approval. While the audience
was given the opportunity to
ask questions concerning the
project, their questions turned
into statements of disapproval.
County Attorney Joey
Lander stressed that the
presentation by Green was just

Homeowner Arrested On Arson Charges
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Scott Michael Sturtevant, 30, of Old Town was arrested on
Tuesday, November 15th on arson charges that stemmed from two
fires that occurred on November 2nd at his and Mary Besterman's
home located on Copeland, Road in Old Town.
That morning the Old Town VFD responded to a small fire in
the garage area but was able to extinguish it. The second fire that
broke out later in the afternoon consumed the home and all its
contents including three vehicles. By the time fire fighters arrived
it was fully engulfed and had already burnt to the ground. '
It was during the State Fire Marshall's investigation into the;
fires that several unnamed persons had been approached by,
Sturtevant to destroy the home. It was that information along.with:\
other evidence that lead to Sturtevant's being charged with Arson
1st Degree and Solicitation To Commit Arson.
As of press time Sturtevant had bonded out.

World War H perspective k
The first presidential election I can remember happened in 1940 A
was six years old at the time, and I recall that m% parents and most so
,f their friends were staunch Republicans who were hoping that Pneumoni
,*Wendell Wilke would defeat Franklin D. Roosevelt, who had side effect
already served two terms-the accepted maximum established by where the
"George Washington and written into the Constitution in 1951. Floridians
Roosevelt, who had resorted to the extraordinary measure of mid-Febru
Using his office to expand the scope of the federal government in provide yc
order to deal with the economic crisis we remember as the Great pregnant
-)epression, assured the American public that, if elected to a third caregivers
$term, he would not get us involved in the war that was already under who should
.way in Europe and the Far East. Other that
4 FDR won by a landslide, to a considerable extent by putting to infections
,rest the fears of the American public that he would lead us into a including:
Second World War. The prevailing isolationism of the period was
satisfied, leaving Wilke with no major issue.
Today, It seems hard to imagine that Americans weren't worried
bout the ruthless aggression of Germany and Japan, but we need to
.remember that our country was separated from.these conflicts by
two oceans. For that matter, it took 9/11--sixty years after Pearl
,Harbor--to awaken us to our vulnerability, and even at that I often
wonder if there aren't still a lot of us Who haven't fully awakened to
that reality. *
It does not seem to be widely-recalled these days, but the United
;States instigated a military draft as early as 1940, nearly 2 years
Before we got involved in.the war, and it was not as widely opposed
4as such a measure would be today, even though we were not at war .
'at the time. (Actually, depression wages weren't all that great, and
Ian Army private could pull down a whopping $2 .00 a month.)
FDR is accused of knowingly allowing the Pearl Harbor attack Se
,to take place, then accusing General Short and Admiral Kimmel of
,malfeasance for being unprepared. While I am convinced that Short
Nand Kimmel were used as scapegoats, nonetheless it seems
,incredible that President Roosevelt would have gone along with maki
allowing our Pacific fleet to be destroyed while at anchor at Pearl
IHarbor. If they had been deployed at sea, they would not have been Di jv
sitting ducks, and if bur fighter planes had been scrambled, then
SDecember 7, 1941, would not have been the total disaster that it AD
was.
The point here is, we would still have been attacked by Japan, so at 4
war would have been inevitable. If FDR was looking for a reason to
; get us into war, he had it regardless of whether or not the Japanese
t attack crippled our Pacific fleet, for which reason I am inclined to
) think that he would have preferred not having to start our
involvement in that conflict at a considerable disadvantage.
N At this point, Germany bad not attacked us, but having
committed to war against the Japanese, pretending that we could be
neutral in the European conflict would have been absurd. (Granted, *
Russia got away with something on the same order, but I doubt that
the American public would have held still foi us doing it.)
During World War II, even Roosevelt's political detractors were CC
not calling for us to abandon our Pacific territories to Japan and the MAINi
European continent to Hitler. Hollywood and the news media were State
enthusiastically supporting the war effort. "Conscientious objectors" 21 Years Ex
were a despised micro-minority, and they could find no refuge in 21 Years
SCanada.ew& Re
Had it been otherwise---had the minority party in Congress, with Shingl
a cheering section in the media and institutions of higher learning
kept the heat on FDR not to get involved-Hitler would undoubt- RoofCoa
, edly have prevailed in Europe as would the Imperial Japanese in Maintenance
Asia and the Pacific region, including Australia. And of course, the
"Axis Powers," as they were known, would long since have
developed nuclear weapons and the ICBM's to deliver them. (35

Letter To The

Editor
Coming Home
I do not believe that al
Qaeda wants us out of Iraq.
Why ?: (1) Occupation of a
Muslin country by us, makes
Bin Ladn's prophesy come
true and has become the
paramount recruiting tool for
terrorists. (2) There's no better
training ground for terrorists
than Iraq, and many of them
will be sent out to western
countries to do their dirty
work. (3) Each day the
terrorists have built-in targets,
the American troops. They do
not have to come to America
to kill Americans.
If they really wanted us out
of Iraq, they would back off
for now and quit killing our
troops and the Iraqi people.
They know that we want out
and if they backed off, it would
be all that we need to declare
victory and leave. I know this
all sounds very Machiavellian,
but it sure makes sense to me.

"FRIENDS"
Continued from page 1


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This is the time of year when we gather with family and friends
to reflect on the past year and reminisce of days gone by. For two
Dixie gals, the holidays have already begun as they were reunited
after 44 years.
Retta "Ward" Reed and Betty "Hicks" VanZandt were best
friends in the sixth grade and have often thought of each other after
Betty moved away after the school year ended after both her
parents died from influenza. The girls were faithful pen pals. Their
last encounter was when they were 15 years old and Betty came
back for a short visit. "We had such fun during that visit," stated
Retta. Both women laughed, remembering Betty buying a pair of
black spiked shoes. "I wore those things everywhere, even to the
movies," said Betty. "It was while I was walking home that I had
to take them off my blistered feet," she laughed. Retta noted they
didn't have her size and it turned out to be a blessing.
When asked if they ever got into any mischief they both had a
firm "no" answer. "Back then you minded your parents," stated
Retta. "We knew better than to misbehave."
They lost track of each other shortly after Betty's last visit, but
the memories of their 6th grade year and Betty's visit when they
were young ladies remained strong.
Several years ago Retta saw an obituary for one of Betty's
brothers in the paper. She wrote down her married name and the
town she lived in. She nientioned this to Jennifer Bellot who
suggested that she try and look up Betty's full address and phone
number off the internet.
"It took only a few minutes for Jennifer to bring it up,"
exclaimed Retta. "I went home that night and wrote Betty a letter
and carried the thing around for two months before I mailed it,"
she added.
To her delight, Betty responded right away and the two
rekindled their pen paling.
Betty has brothers in Florida, one in Jacksonville and one in
Tallahassee. With strong encouragement from her husband she
made plans to fly to Florida from her home in Hamlin, Texas for a
visit, not only to her brothers, but also to her lifelong friend in
Cross City.
"It has been a sweet, sweet reunion," stated Retta. Betty
agreed.
Betty returned home this past Monday with a fresh set of
memories, of her time with Retta. Of course these days the two
have telephones and take full advantage of their use, throwing in a
letter every now and then to economize.


COMMISSION "
Continued from page 1
that, a presentation. Any further action will dictate public
hearings, at which time they would have the opportunity to express
their concerns.
Dixie Commissioners stated that they are open to any and all
suggestions that will help the boating ramp situation. With more
and more marinas selling out, the problem of where the public will
be able to "put-in" their boats are growing. Currently there are two
public ramps on the Dixie side; both have issues with parking and
room to maneuver.
If approved the project would be funded mainly by grants.
Future public hearings on this issue will be posted in the
Advocate's legal section for two weeks prior to the hearing as well
as on the Commission Agenda.
A report from the Suwannee Water and Sewer Board stated
they would put bids out on the new water plant for Suwannee in
January.
Dick Edwards, Community Projects Consultant, notified the
Commissioners that eleven applications for the Hurricane Housing
Recovery Program had been prioritized and are ready for bidding.
The Commissioners approved the list. Commissioners also noted
that applicants were prioritized on a "first to qualify, first to be
assisted" basis.
Jerry Prater, Veterans Service Officer gave an update on the
progress of the "Mini Veteran Park." Final plans are being made
and the park should be completed within the next month. The
Commissioners thanked Prater for all his hard work on the project
and extended their thanks to Ben Barber of Dixie Monuments,
Ronnie Lambert of Florida Forest Products and Flying Hawk for
their generous donations.
Chad Reed, Emergency Services Director reported that the
dredging of several of the canals in Horseshoe Beach would begin
the last week of November. The pipe has been fitted and will be
laid, followed by the dredging itself. Approximately 250 feet of
canal would be dredged per day. The projected time frame for the
project is approximately 4-months. However, Reed noted that the
contractors have 6-months'to complete the project.
Along those same lines, County Coordinator Arthur Bellot
noted that work on the dredging of the canal at Hinton Landing
boat ramp had been delayed due to contract issues and the river
itself being so high this past summer. With" those issued solved,
dredging should begin very soon, bringing the boat ramp back to
usable status.
The Board meets the first Thursday of each month at 10:00 AM
and the third Thursday of.each month at 6:00 PM.


"SCHOOLS"
Continued from page 1
prescription use; all these being factors in the higher cost.
Also included in the package is a 1.7% salary schedule step and'
3.5% across the board raise for all employees.
Bennett stated that it has been the goal of the Board to make;
Dixie competitive with other counties. "We had to first get our,
starting salary in line first, which we have done over the past three'
years," Bennett stated. This year's base pay for 1st year teachers is,
$30,000.00 and signifies the reaching of the Boards' goal. "With-
our starting salary being in line with other counties and our overall;
financial package better than most in our area, we now have the'
tools to attract the best teachers," stated Bennett.
Dixie County Educational Association (DCEA) President John
Kreinbihl added, "You get what you pay for." Kreinbihl
remembers when Dixie teachers moved across the river to teach
because the pay was so much better. He noted that Dixie has had
problems in the past recruiting new teachers as well. "We have
already seen many teachers return and we are drawing quality,"
Kreinbihl added.
Ken Baumer, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction stated
that these positive changes have had a domino effect throughout
the system. Morale has increased and with the continued success
of our FCAT scores in the elementary and middle schools and the
high school working towards success, Dixie is on its way to being
the school of choice.
Baumer also noted that Dixie currently has five teachers
working towards their National Board Certification. This is an
intense course with a 50% passing rate. Teachers achieving this
certification are given 120 points towards their re-certification and
a one time bonus of $500.00. "Data shows students who have
these specially certified teachers perform better," he added.
The final portion of this year's package is a $500.00 bonus, just
in time for Christmas, a nice finishing touch the cherry on top of
the whipped cream if you will.
Bennett wanted to extend his personal thanks and that, of the
Board to the DCEA. "We appreciate the DCEA's efforts in
keeping abreast of the financial issues and mandates from the
state," he said. "It makes it easier to work with a union that
understands both sides," stated Bennett. Kreinbihl added .that
while they may not always agree on every item, they do appreciate
the Boards' efforts in trying to work with them.
Bennett ended by saying that the Board hopes to continue to do
what is right for its employees. "We want to at least be able to
give them a cost of living increase each year in order for them to
make ends meet," he stated. "That is the least we can do for those
who are the back bone of the educational system here in Dixie."

Tri County Nursing Home News


Maintenance Director Robert Chumney raises the new flag
donated by the VFW's Purple Hearter's of Tri Countv Area.
Tri County Nursing Home, a non-profit organization,
celebrated Veterans Day with Veteran residents and other
residents, on the grounds of the nursing home on Friday November
11th. Activity Director Barbara Chumney, along with Maintenance
Director Robert Chumney held a flag raising ceremony with
residents and staff members.
The facility provided a decorative red, white and blue cake that
was served to the residents and staff. Veteran residents could be
easily identified by the red, white and blue caps provided by the
VFW's Purple Hearter's of the Tri County area along with a
charitable donation for the residents and a brand new flag.
The department head staff of Tri County held a yard sale
Saturday, November 5"'. Staff members, volunteers and some of
the families of the residents provided items for the yard sale. All
proceeds from this event will be put in the Christmas fund for the
residents.
Tri County also held a donation fundraiser during the Down
Home Days of Trenton. Many restaurant businesses in the tri
county area generously gave gift certificates for dinners that were
raffled for our Christmas Fund. The monies collected from this
event as well as the others will allow all residents to have a
wonderful Christmas. Holidays can be a sad time for residents. Not
all residents have families to visit them or bring presents during the
holidays. We graciously thank all the businesses in the tri county
area that participated in this holiday season, for their generosity.
The raffle winners are; Bill Dampier, Arlene Geiger, Theresa
Gentry, Shani King, Tina Linsey, Anne McKinney, A. Manning
and Gert Wilson. If you have not picked up your gift certificate,

Faith Baptist Church News
What a beautiful day God gave us today at Faith. The choir did
an excellent job as always, Bro. Jackie delivered 2 great messages
that God had laid on his heart, and the special music was
delightful. We had an outstanding crowd in both services today
and we also had lots of visitors. We want our visitors to know what
a blessing they are to us and we pray that they felt welcome and
loved and could go away saying, "It was good to be in the house of
the Lord". We invite you back anytime.
With the holidays coming, we will be very busy in the next few
weeks. Next Sunday night, November 27, Rabbit Easter and his
bluegrass group, "Dewgrass" will be in concert at Faith beginning
at 7:00 PM and going until they get tired and want to quit. We are
looking for a very spirit-filled evening. There is no charge, but a
love offering will be taken to help them with their travel expenses.
Come hear this fabulous group and come expecting a blessing.
You will surely receive one.
On Sunday night, December 18, we will have our Christmas
program. Janet Osteen is organizing a wonderful Christmas play
and it's going to be great. Don't miss this funny but spiritual
Christmas story. You will surely enjoy it.
Remember this week to pray for our upcoming events, the sick
and bereaved in our community and especially remember the lost
in this time of Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. We have
so much to be thankful for and we especially need to remember the
less fortunate. Think of someone you could invite to come enjoy
the Christmas festivities at our church, and someone who is lost
and needs God in their life. God will surely bless you for it.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"David and Goliath"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say Samuel
is instructed of the Lord (Ch. 16) to go to the house of Jesse and
anoint one of his sons as the King over Israel. Jesse had eight sons.
Now all of them were in the right family, born of the right father.
But God is going to make a choice. So they gather the sons
together. Except one. One son is so small, so insignificant, so weak
in outward appearance that they don't bother to call him in from
the wilderness. Anyhow, he's not too popular, for all he seems to
do is sing psalms and worship God in the spirit.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Unlike his big brothers who are out
chasing Philistines, fighting Saul's battles, knocking on doors,
building up Sunday Schools, David is just resting in God. What he
does he does by the power of the Spirit. His brothers despise him.
I, the Day of the Lord, say so Samuel look at the eldest, and
likes what he sees. God is looking on the heart, and the scene is not
so pretty. You are not going to fool God. Either clean up on the
inside, or forget about going on with God. The old laws, "don't
touch, don't taste, don't look," are not enough anymore. God is
searching the inward parts. There must be a purity of heart to
receive this anointing.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Finally seven sons are examined
rejected. Is there not another? Jesse is an old man now. No more
strength to bring forth again. If the promised one is not here, there
is no more hope. Yes, there is an eighth son, .but he is so small.
Never mind that send for him, quickly! Eight is a peculiar number.
It is the number of resurrection, life out of death, a new beginning.
So little David is sent for, and is anointed King.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Now that you have been anointed,
David, now that you have received the word concerning the throne,
WHEN will you put on your Kingly garment and begin ruling?
The time are in His hands. As for me, I will return to the
wilderness to sing psalms and worship God in the Spirit. He will
call for me in His hour. But Saul's organized system is troubled by
an evil spirit from the Lord, and he needs someone around with the
true anointing (16:14). So David is sent for and he dwells in Saul's
house for a season.
I, the Day of the Lord, say But this is not God's plan or destiny
for David, and David has to finally flee for his life from Saul's
presence, lest Saul should kill him. Some folks would lead you to
believe that you can return to the old order of religion with this
new anointing and this new call to the throne, but beware lest Saul
run you through with his javelin. Your anointing may soothe
Saul's troubled spirit for a time, and you may even have a measure
of revival.
I, the Day of the Lord, say But if you stay in Saul's house you
will lose all that God has given you or called you to inherit. Please
stay up with me and see what David does. Continued next week.

Abundant Life & Living
By Lucille Stockton
Life Is Good! Thank God we
are blessed to be alive, if anything :. "
is in our lives that isn't as we want *
it to be, as long as we are alive we .
can fix it. While you are.enjoying '
abundant life on this beautiful :M '-
earth planet, don't forget why you :'
are here, or why you were given |"-H
your space in the human family.
First: we are here because god
needs our bodies to live in.
Second: He gave us space in his
human family to be his hands, feet, mouth, ears and eyes, to
work, walk, talk, hear, see and be His love, truth, grace and
mercy for His wonderful creating. Third: Psalm 139: 13-14
(KJV) states; we are fearfully and wonderfully madeO we are
unique and very special.
Also keep in mind, all of us were born with a purpose to
fulfill; to help make the world a better place by sharing our
peach and joy with others. Many of us learn our place and
purpose early in life. Many of us find our place late in life,
nevertheless just be. happy whenever we find it. Wake up that
giant spirit inside of you and fulfill your purpose. We need God
and God needs us to be His examples. We are his dear children.
"Love Live and Live It".


Joseph Dyals


Our meeting was
completely by chance,
But ended up being a
friendly circumstance.
We could laugh, joke and
pick at each
other all day,
Some people thought it
was mean but that
was our way.
You became one of my
best guy friends to you I
could always go,
Even if you couldn't
think of a word you'd say I


/ know.
You'd listen to me and I'd do the same,
You were 01' G imps I was 5 head that was our game.
I loved to see you smile more so when you'd blush,
You say "shut up fat head" but I'd never hush.
You've left us now and I know you're in a better place,
But tears come knowing I'll never see that smiling face.
Buddy watih over us let us know you're still here,
BW with us in despair, happiness,
confusion, heartbreak and fear.
Joseph I could tell you anything so please hear me now,
I need you we all do so please stay by our
sides don't let us go without.
I love you buddy,
Jessica Waters

New Prospect Baptist News
We always have much for which to be thankful but, as
Thanksgiving Day approaches each year, we are acutely reminded
of this fact. Our families, our friends, and the material things with
which we've been blessed all come to mind but, the most important
of all our blessings is a close relationship with God. Bro. Billy
brought a fine message Sunday illustrating this fact, choosing his
text from Psalms 100:1-5. Immediately following the morning
services, we were again blessed to have a baptismal service.
Sunday night after special singing, we had a Thanksgiving "
testimonial time when all were invited to tell of special times in
our lives in which God has intervened for our benefit.
We at New Prospect wish you a very safe and Happy
Thanksgiving, and invite you to visit, worship, and fellowship with
us! In the meantime, be in prayer as always for those on the
church prayer lists, our people in the armed forces, our nation's
leaders, and one another. May God bless and keep you safe.

The Word Made

Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say the Jews are
.less are than any other people
of their being in the spiritual
world, believing themselves to be
still living in the natural world;
and that because they are
altogether. external men, and do
not at all think of religion from an
interior principle.
I, the son of man, say they talk
about the Messiah just as they did
before, some insisting that He will
come with David and will go
before them, shining with
diadems, and introduce them into
the land of Canaan, and in their
way thither will dry up the rivers
which they are to pass over by the
raising of His rod: that the
Christians, whom also among
themselves they call gentiles, will
then lay hold on the skirts of their
garment, humbly praying to be
permitted to accompany them; that
they will receive the rich
according to their wealth, and be
served by them.
I, the son of man, say they
confirm themselves in these
notions by what is written in
Zechariah 8:23; and in Isaiah
' 66:20; and by what is Written of,
David, that He is to come and be
their king and Shepherd; in
Jeremiah 30:9 and in Ezekiel
34:23-25; altogether averse from
hearing that our Lord Jesus Christ
is meant by David in those
passages, and that the 'future
members of His church there are
meant by Jews.
I, the son of man, say when
they are asked heatherr the, frinnl>
belie\ e that they shall all go to the
land Canaan' they answer in the
affirmative, and insist that at the
same time the deceased Jews will'
rise again and leave their
sepulchers to enter that land. If it
be objected that they themselves
will not be able to go forth from
'their sepulchers, being now living
after death, they reply, that they
shall descend, and re-eriter their
bodies and so will live.
I, the son of man, say when
they are ,told that the land of
Canaan is not large enough to
contain them all they answer, that
then it will be enlarged. When it is
urged that the kingdom of the
Messiah, since He is the Son of
: God, will not be upon earth, but in
heaven, they reply that the land of
Canaan will then be heaven. When
they are told that there is within
the word a spiritual sense, which
treats much of Christ they reply,
that it is not so, but some of them
say that within the word, or in its
* depths, there is nothing but gold;
not to mention other similar
extravagances. Continued.

Has Anyone Seen Our

Wilderness?
Editor's Note: The following letter was

'all-around outdoorsman. Harris stated that he
S.. awoke in the middle of the night with these
thoughts so strong, he felt compelled to set them
down on paper. While they were written some 30 years ago in Seminole
County, FL, we think that today's hunter will appreciate his early
experiences.
Seems like only yesterday (or was it the day before?) that we
had fields and woods to hunt in. And the cool shaded oak thickets,
where silence held only the faint sounds of the wild country; where
man stood as a stranger, ALONE.
Remember those good fishing lakes where no one else went,
and the clean, wild rivers that ran through Florida, where you
could fish or just drift along and watch the wild creatures that lived
:on the banks? And the hardwood thickets that came right down and
stood at the water's edge?
The whole world was peaceful and, alive, and well, and doing
just fine!
Why these things have always been here. RIGHT HERE, OR
maybe it was right over THERE, somewhere close.
You know something? I just turned around and looked, and
they are almost gone!
Will someone please tell me how all this happened in the last
two or three years, while it seems I just wasn't watching? Someone
built houses around those little lakes I used to fish. And the river?
My goodness there are speed boats and water skiers all over the
place.
The bays and back waters are covered with the stench of dead,
sprayed hyacinths rotting in the sun, and you wouldn't believe the
GARBAGE.
The big oak trees now shade condominiums and town houses,
with sewer run-offs into our clear spring-fed streams.
My rancher friends now have POSTED signs up on the fields
and woods I loved to walk through. And they tell me of cattle and
fine hard bulls someone shot last hunting season for the one before.
,And how meat RUSTLERS have forced them to close their land to
-everyone. And this shoulder-to-shoulder hunting in the game
.management areas is more dangerous than a tour-of-duty in Indo-
China!
I guess the thing that made me stop and look around was
,probably the latest hassle over our fishing on the south beaches
below new Smyrma. Can you believe-all that BULL?
The SOLITUDE of a sunrise over that red-shell beach can help
a man untangle his tired and worried mind better than any doctor
j alive!
All that big peaceful ocean with the waves on the sand is
I probably the best TRANQUILIZER in the world.
SNow they want to turn our last hide-away into a big picnic
,beach party.
The influx of all the new people to Florida has strained all our
wild resources but you can't blame. them for falling in love with
;our outdoors the way we old-timers have.
' Recently, I gave up bow-hunting to the growing crowds in the'
,woods. Before that, I sold my high-powered rifles.
, My bass boat sits unattended in my carport now will I have to
,sell my surf tackle as well?
Our gun club, (you know, the bunch of friendly guys who hunt
together and enjoy each other's company?) why now, they are
talking of bringing in Southeastern national shooting matches and
wholesale skeet and trap ranges?
SWho's responsible for all these things while I wasn't'looking?
-You don't suppose, just maybe, did I help bring all of this on
MYSELF?

Springhouse Quilter's News


The quilt show has ended and Springhouse members have
many memories and stories to tell about different events and
quilts that were in the show.
One story is about a quilt that received some very special.
attention and was made by Araceli Wetsel. Mrs. Wetsel had
never made a quilt so she had no knowledge of how to make a
quilt. She, however, had this desire to create a quilt using leaves
that she collected during her visits and travels around the United
States. As she collected the different leaves, she made a pattern
of each leaf, selected a special fabric to enhance the beauty of
each leaf, and made a fabric replica of the leaf. She then
appliqued the leaf to a block of muslin with a perfect blanket
stitch. After making all the blocks, Mrs. Wetsel again selected
complimentary fabrics and finished joining all the leaf blocks into
a quilt top She then found a local machine quilter to complete
the quilting on the quilt. When Mrs. Wetsel found out about the
quilt show she entered her quilt in the show. During the show,
there were many good comments about her quilt and the work she
put into. It is a very large eye-catching quilt. Thanks to Mrs.
Wetsel for loaning the quilt to Springhouse for the quilt show.
Springhouse quilters will be offering new member beginning
quilting classes after the beginning of 2006. Anyone that is
'interested in joining Springhouse quilters or needing additional
information should contact Anna Gilliam, 463 7922, Mary
Rawlins, 493 7401 or Lois Scott, 463 2207.

I project was delivered on time and in person. You might imagine
their surprise when they were told what the research was actually
for.
It's a Little Known Fact that one \of the most embarrassing
moments for first lady Rosalyn Carter was being called down to
pick up the report that she had ordered! Yeah, Rosalyn not the
President. And what did the first lady need with a 6,000-page
$325,000 report of statistics and progress of economic America
from the Industrial Revolution to present? Well, it seems that the
First Lady was helping first daughter Amy Carter with her
homework. And Rosalyn thought that a little info from the
Department of Labor would help. She got it! Did it help? We're
not sure. Amy got a "C" on her report. We're not sure what the
Department of Labor got.

DID YOU KNOW?
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 in
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)
About 2.4 million Americans visit the doctor for diarrhea every
year. Get this, a study at Children's Hospital & Research Center
Oakland, California, found that eating dark chocolate, which is
high in cocoa, can ease symptoms. That's because flavonoids,
which help clear toxins from your body, influence a protein in the
small intestine that controls fluid secretion. (The National
Enquirer)
Researchers say that even a 10 percent weight loss can rev up
your sex life. "You don't have to reach some ideal weight to be
healthy and happy and feel sexy" says psychologist Martin Binks,
of Duke University in North Carolina. Investigators studied 161
women and 26 men with an average age of 45 and a body mass
index of 41,a BMI above 30 is considered obese. They found that
after losing about 12 percent of their body weight, the number of
women who enjoyed sex doubled and the percentage of those who
felt they were sexually unattractive feel from 68 to 26. (The
National Enquirer)
Wanna peel off pounds walk your dog. A study found that
overweight people who walked their dogs for 20 minutes a day at
least three times a week, lost 14 pounds over 50 weeks. "That's
better results than most of the nationally known weight-loss plans,"
says Rebecca Johnson, a veterinary professor at the University of
Missouri-Columbia. (Globe)

Monday Morning Deadline
"I don't know why the President needs it," said the head of the
Department of Labor. "All I know is that he needs it by Monday!"
And that was part of the problem; this was Friday afternoon. Not
that the Labor Department was all that unwilling to work over the
weekend, but why in the world did the White House wait until
Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. before making the request?
You know how we Americans hate to give up our weekends.
But it sure appeared that most of the people in the Department of
Labor were about to give up theirs. The request had come directly
from the White House and it came'with a deadline. We have to
have this information no later than Sunday at 6 p.m. the official
request said. All the department could figure is that it must be for
some high level meeting on Monday morning, and the President
and White House staffers would need time to read and assimilate.
the information before Monday=s meeting.
But if their leader needed this information for some big
political or international conference, the Department of Labor was
going to do its darndest to get it out. They were going to have to
put some brainwork into this one. It involved economic figures
and stats from as far back as the industrial revolution in this
country. The Department dug in. They worked late into Friday
night, sending out for food and making the requests of both their
powerful computers and their talented library staff.
On into Saturday it went, with the figures being correlated and
compiled. More than 60 years of data being brought together in
one large report that would clearly reflect the beginning stats of the
Revolution, continuing on with the progress made in the 20s, the
30s, through the war years of the 40s, and the fantastic economic
boom and recovery of the 50s. It even had all the available
statistics of the socially turbulent 60s. The facts and figures were
[ there.
SAt the appointed time on Sunday afternoon, nearly two hours
before the deadline, a truck pulled up at the White House with a
full 6i000-page report aboard. The department was mighty proud
of this report. And they should have been. After all it was
estimated that it cost the American taxpayers approximately
$325,000 for them to prepare it over a weekend that way. And I
don=t think that counted the actual cost of the paper that was used
to print it either!
But there it was, all 6,000 pages of it, complete with several
smiling Labor Department staffers who wanted to be sure the

LEGAL NOTICE
FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE

Final notice under Executive Order
11988, Floodplain Management, is
hereby given by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency's (FEMA) intent to
provide Public Assistance funding to a
variety of projects located within the State
of Florida. Included are projects related
to:
1) The repair and restoration of water
control facilities for the five water
management districts located within
Florida (Northwest Florida, Southwest
Florida, Suwannee River, St. John's
River, and South Florida Water
Management Districts). The work may
include dredging of sediment from the
canals; repair, restoration, and
stabilization of canal banks; and the
seeding of the restored area.
2) The repair and restoration of
playground equipment, athletic facilities,
boat docks, piers, picnic tables,
restrooms, and the repair and restoration
of roads, buildings, and utilities. These
activities will occur in state, county, or
municipally owned park and recreational
facilities located throughout the state.
3) The repair, restoration, or replacement
of buildings, building roofs, shingles,
doors, windows, shutters, walls, gutters,
fences, gates, signs, awnings, railings,
and includes furnishings and interior
systems such as electrical work. These
activities will occur on state, county, or
municipally owned public buildings
located throughout the state.
4) The repair, restoration, and
stabilization of road surfaces, bases, and
shoulders, ditches, drainage structures,
bridges, decking, piers, girders,
abutments, slope protection, and
approaches. These activities will occur
on public roads and bridges throughout
the state.

Funds will be provided in accordance with
the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and
Emergency Assistance Act, Public Law
93-288, as amended.

Program: Public Assistance, FEMA
Disasters DR-1539-FL, DR-1545-FL, DR-
1551-FL, DR-1561-FL, DR-1595-FL, DR-
1602-FL, and any other as yet undeclared
Presidential disaster declaration that may
occur during. the 2005 hurricane season.

Statement of Why Action is Located in
Floodplain: 'These projects involve the
repair and restoration of publicly owned
facilities damaged during the 2004 and
2005 hurricane season, as discussed
above. The projects are located within
the floodplain because:
1) Water control facilities are functionally
dependent on their location, and therefore'
are generally located within mapped 1'00-
year floodplains. .
2) Park and recreational facilities can be
functionally dependent on their location
and, therefore be, located. within mapped.
100-year floodplains. Other facilities may
be utilization of public .facilities within
areas that cannot be developed. In most
cases, these facilities also facilitate open
space use.
3) The public buildings will be rebuilt
within the floodplain when there are no
practicable alternatives for moving them,
because they might be functionally
dependent on their location, or they may
help facilitate open space use.
4) Roads are connected to roadway
portions outside of the floodplain and
practicable alternatives for moving them
out of the floodplain do not exist. Bridges
are functionally dependent on their
location, and therefore located within
mapped 100-year floodplains.

Alternatives Considered: In all cases,
the alternatives to be considered have
been and will be: 1) Repair to pre-disaster
conditions. 2) Repair to pre-disaster
conditions with mitigation to minimize
impacts during future events. 3) No action
alternative. Where possible, alttmative
locations outside of the floodplain will be
examined.
Applicability of State/Local Floodplain
Standards: Funding will be conditional
upon the projects" conformity with all
applicable state and local floodplain
standards, the project's obtaining any
necessary U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
permits, and the project complying with
any terms and conditions placed by U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.

Affects to the Floodplain and
Mitigation: The proposed actions 'may
have short-term impacts to the floodplain
during construction. These impacts
would consist of short-term water quality
impacts. In some cases, mitigation
against damage during future events will
be provided by repairing or replacing
structures with materials that give
additional protection. Long term direct
and indirect impacts are not expected or
are expected to be beneficial for various
reasons.
