Donald 0. Hunt of Old Town was caught off guard in the earl,>
morning hours on Monday, November 21st, when he collided with
a black bear causing him to spin and then overturn into a ditch.
While Hunt was unharmed the bear received extensive injuries.
According to a report filed by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Hunt was traveling southbound on US 19 about two miles from the
SR 51 intersection in Tennille when the bear came out of the
woods onto the roadway causing the accident.
The Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) was called to the
scene at which time they found the 325 pound bear's injuries
extensive and had to put it down.
While black bears are not on the Federal Endangered Species
List, they are on Florida's list of endangered animals.
It was reported that Hines was wearing his seatbelt at the time
of the accident. Damage to his 1993 Chevy pickup was estimated
at $4,000.00.

DEF Holds Annual Meeting


Holy Cross Mission Cathodc Church.. .Serving

Vp Thanksgiving Dinner Tor 27 'Tears

-U.-


Seniors throughout the county gathered at the Holy Cros missionn Catholic Church for a Thanksgiring
feast, thanks to a band of dedicated ladies who have made the dinner an annual event for the past 27
years.
By Terri Lanoglo id- Stauf 'l icr
For 27 years the Council of Catholic Women at the Cross City Holy Cross Mission Church has
been host a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, complete with all the fixins for area senior citizens.
This year the ladies served 165 guests.
The ladies went all out in order to make the dinner extra special from the decorations to the
meal itself, making sure their guests had plenty to eat and a relaxing time. A time to fellowship
and give thanks. While the ladies worked for days to make the dinner come together, some of the
credit goes to the Knights ,of Columbus who pitched in. From the empty plates and smiling faces,
it was obvious that the dinner was a success.

Jimmy Carter...apostate?
I expect to get some flack based on the title of this column, but
termer President Jimnny Carter's latest literary effort. entitled. Our
Endangered Values: A4merica's Moral Crisis, raises the question of
jst where he actually stands-on the issues that many Americans
consider to be xitall) important.
I For example, Mr. Carter buys the liberal line that our military
personnel and the CIA are torturing prisoners in the current war.
This,- of course, requires buying into the liberal definition of
tOrture, as in the outrage over Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and the
alleged "secret prisons" at undisclosed locations in Europe and/or
tlhe Middle East.
Well, if the definition of "torture" is satisfied by making a
terrorist sleep on the cold, hard floor or wear women's panties on
$is head, then what about the stuff that Saddam Hussein had going
(d in his inquisitorial dungeons, rape rooms and such before we
invaded? In our country, the town drunk has slept on the floor
plenty of times, maybe even on the sidewalk in bad weather. As for
wearing women's panties on one's head, that's the least of what
goes on at some New Year's Eve parties. It's a poor substitute for
good entertainment, but an Islamic terrorist would consider it
degrading because women are "inferior." One is prone to ask if
Jummy Carter agrees, since he's done as much to promote
women's lib as Gloria Steinem and the rest of the "NOW gang."
And speaking of women's lib, Jimmy was a long-time Southern
1laptist who taught Sunday School at a church in his home town
until the denomination's leaders got together and figured out that
they'd been drifting away from the Textbook in recent years. Jesus
did initiate some priorities that improved the status of women
during His ministry on earth, but He didn't charter the women's
l1b movement, as the Apostle Paul makes abundantly clear in
fphesians 5:22-24 and I Timothy 2:12.
hIn any event, this development was more than the former
resident could stand, so he quit the Southern Baptists, who have
nonetheless survived in his absence.
' In"his current best-seller, Jimmy faults the "religious right" for
getting too involved in politics, and it is herein that the descriptive
term, apostate, applies. (The meaning of the term.is easily enough
remembered, though perhaps not precisely defined, as being the
Opposite of an apostle.)
T The state of California has given us an atheist by the name of
4ichael Newdow. who needs to get a job, as he apparently has
nothing better to do than file lawsuits in an effort to remove "under
,Lod" from the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we trust" from
Our coins and currency. He has met with limited success and is still
plugging away. with the support of several left-wing organizations.
The school board in Dover, Pennsylvania, was voted out for
requiring that the concept of Intelligent Design be included in the
science curriculum. The term came into use -after the scientific
.otnnunity concluded that Darwinian evolution could not explain
something g as complex as DNA; but since it seems to leave the door
.pen to the concept of a supernatural Creator, it is taboo according
o the priorities of those who elect school boards in some
communities. .
Meanwhile, an increasing number of retail chains have
-eliminated the word "Christmas" from their December holiday
displayss and told the Salvation Army bell-ringers to take a hike.
Nonetheless. Jimmy Carter seems to feel that the Christian
community should not get involved-just roll over and play dead
tahile our culture undergoes a purge of our values in the name ol
Secular liberalism.
1 don't know about you. but I'd consider that the priority of an
lopostate.

Letter to the Editor
I am the brother of Dorothy Carter who was the mother of
Debbie Mikell. Debbie was the only niece I had. She was a very
loving and caring person. She had two children who still depended
on her for comfort and advice. She had a grandson who will never
know how wonderful a person she was. She had many, many
people who loved her for who she was and how she treated them.
She never hurt or had a cross word for anyone.
We will never forget her and we will never forgive Scott Key
for taking her life.
Life in prison is letting him off easy for what he has done.
Debbie's Uncle,
Darrell Proctor Greensboro, NC
Editor's Note: Debbie Mikell, a former Dixie County resident, was
murdered in her home in Richmond County, NC two years ago by Scott
Key. Key was sentenced to life in prison in March of this year, 2005.

Abundant Life & Living
BR Lucille Stockton
.k-As we set our clocks back in
time one hour; remembering we :, n;:f -
are entering the winter months of Li
cold an chilly hibernating weather.
It brings to mind how blessed we 4..
ar. to have come through spring, ...
s mer and fall. The crime, .
claos, and disasters that has .=
invaded the world, we all can say
\\,e are bener than blessed, we are
loved. Through it, all God
protected us and kept us alive.
Let's do all we can for the people that are not as fortunate as
we are, that is the only way we can show how thankful we are
for God's love and tender mercy for us. When we share and
bless God's human family we are blessing God. I can say with
assurande-we were in divine Pass Oxer this year As our
beautiful children dressed up in their funny costumes happy
and .free to celebrate Hallox een, enjoying parties and fun trick
or treating. Did we take the time to remind them to share with
the less fortunate children, all around the world. It is a great
N\ ay to teach our children to love and share. The door is wide
open to show our love now. Are we measuring up to a Child of
God? It is testing time, how do you rate? Did you make 100?
Matthe%% 25: 36-45 (KJV).
"Love Live and Live It".

vyonderful musical with readings and songs that will truly put you
ib 'the spirit as we hear about the gift that God gave us in His Son,
our. Lord 'and Savior Jesus Christ. That gift is really the gift that
',keeps on giving"!
We will also be having a beautiful Christmas Eve Service of
Carols & Candles at 7:00 PM on December 24th.
S Finally, since Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, we will
have a worship service on Christmas morning at 11:00 am.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
"Rev 21:3"
"David and Goliath"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say But some
protest, saying, "Don't you think that God will include all those precious
Pentecostals and hungry fundamentalists in this last day move?"
Absolutely not! Not as organizations, not as present day ecclesiastical
systems. The last great revival will break in pieces all of man's Kingdoms
and the man-made rulers would kill the revival if they could. Oh yes, I see
the multiplied millions eventually coming out of the old harlot system, and
God will most certainly bless them and include them in what He is doing,
both preachers, laymen and local churches.
I, the Day of the Lord, say For God loves His people', Pentecostals and
all others, and will do for them according to what they will receive of
Him. Turning now to the 17th chapter of this book 1 Samuel, we see a
picture of the present condition of God's people. We hear the devil's bold
challenge, and then comes God's answer. The battle is set in array. Notice
in verse 1 that the Philistines were gathered together in Shochon, which
belonged to Judah. They were camped on God's property.
I, the Day of the Lord, say the Philistines are types of satan and his
army, and Paul wrote to the Ephesian church that we wrestle against
principalities and powers and wicked spirit in the heavenlies. Today a war
is going on, and satan's army is camped on God's territory. The word
Shochoh means "a hedge", and that's exactly why the enemy has not
already destroyed the human race, God has a hedge built around them.
Satan can go so far, and no further.
I, the Day of the Lord,. say This.land belonged to Judah. Now Judah
means "praise". This land belongs to our praise, it is for His glory. Satan
must be cast off and put under feet. Now in the Bible, mountains represent
Kingdoms. And in verse 3 we see Israel on one mountain and the
Philistines on another. There is no peace between them.
I, the Day of the Lord, say It takes the next four verses to describe the
might and strength of Goliath, and if we let our minds dwell on his power,
we might surely end up full of fear, as Israel did. For it says they were
"dismayed and greatly afraid"(1 Sam 17:4-11). Where was Saul, head and
shoulders above all others? Oh, beloved, he cannot fight this Goliath, for
he doesn't have the anointing. No doubt he had conferences with his
captains often, discussing ways and means of running the machinery more
efficiently.
I, the'Day of the Lord, 4a'., perhzap. he had camp neetiing '.'.ith all his
army at times around the campfire at night. But it was all a game. For
Saul's armor hung in the tent. It was of no value. He did not have the
anointing. So he made great promises of what would be done for the one
who defeated Goliath, but he never expected it to be done. Continued next
week.

The Word Made
Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say the infinitive
Divine is in men as in its images,
is evident from the Word, where
there is read: And God said let us
make man in our image, after our
likeness: so God created man into
His o%\n image, into the image of
God created. He him (Gen.
1:26,27); from which it follows
that man is an organ recipient of
God, and that he is an organ
according to the quality of
reception. The human mind, from
which and according to which'
man is man, is formed into three
regions according the three
degrees.
.I, the son of man, say In the
first degree it is celestial, in which
also are the angels of the highest
Sheaven; in the second degree it is
spiritual, in which also are the
angels of the middle heaven; and
in the third degree it is natural, in
which also are the angels of the
lowest heaven. The human mind,
organized according to those three,
degrees, is a receptacle of the
Divine. influx; but still the Divine
flows in no further than as man
prepares the way, or opens the
door; if he does this even the
highest or celestial degree, then
man become truly an image of
God, and after death he become an
angel of the highest heaven.
I, the son of man, say But if he
'prepares the way, or opens the
door, only to the middle or
spiritual degree, then indeed man
become an image of God; but not
in that perfection, and after death
he becomes an angel of the middle
heaven; and if he prepares the
way, or opens the door, only to the
lowest or natural degree, then
man, if he acknowledges God and
worships Him with actual piety,
becomes an image of God in the
lowest degree, and after death he
becomes an angel of the lowest
heaven.
I, the son of man, say If,
however,, he does not
acknowledge God and does not
worship Him with actual piety, he
puts off the image of God, and
becomes like some animal, except
that he enjoys the faculty of
understanding and thence of
speech. If he then shuts up the
highest natural degree, which
corresponds to the highest
heavenly, he becomes as to love
like a beast of the earth; but if he
shuts up the middle natural degree,,
which corresponds to the middle
spiritual, he becomes as to love
like a fox, and as to the sight of
the understanding like a bird of the
evening: but if he also shuts up the'
lowest natural degree as to its
l,. spiritual, he becomes as to love
like a wild beast, and as to
understanding of truth like a fish.
f' I, the son of man, say If this
degree as its spiritual be entirely
closed, which is done when God is
denied and Satan is worshipped
the reception of life from God may,
be compared 'with the influx:tof


light into opaque things of the
earth, as into rotten wood, or into
the turf of a bog, or into dung, and
the like; for man then becomes a
spiritual carcass. Love you.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2005


Character Council's Personality For

November Is Joy Powell
By Geneva Cornwell Gilchrist Journal
r' :.,. There's an ancient saying that reads thus: "Knock and the door
.'S-,- will be opened." This author has been knocking quite regularly
and the door has opened to more and more young people she can
interview who are preceptors and doers of specific character traits,
and who are consistently looking for the "unsung heroes" of our
precious county.
SOne such heroine recently received a phone call from this
author. Her name is Joy Powell. She is a 2005 high school
graduate and is presently a student at Santa Fe Community
College. Joy was president of the Bell FFA, section leader in the
Bell Band and graduated with a 4.3 average which rewarded her
'.. with a full 100 percent Bright Futures scholarship. Joy is a native
Floridian and was raised in the Town of Bell. She gives credit to
her whole family for leading the way in whose footsteps she
follows. This quiet and gentle young lady is the daughter of Tim
Miss Joy Powell and Lori Powell. Joy has one sibling, a brother, and she attends
Priscilla Baptist Church. Joy exudes the character quality of
TRUTHFULNESS and it is that trait which is highlighted this month.
Joy spoke very candidly about her thoughts on the subject of TRUTIIFULNESS. She said that
TRUTHFULNESS is important in her life "because in telling the truth, always, a person can then
earn the trust and respect of other people. Living for the truth demonstrates one's faith in God, for
having a truthful life in not only being truthful with words it's being truthful with actions."
Miss Powell related, "Since she started college she has heard and has been expected to have faith
in many ideas which she believes are wrong. She has tried to demonstrate TRUTHFULNESS by not
going along with those ideas but by setting examples of what are truth.
Joy would like to encourage others to display TRUTHFULNESS in their lives by telling them
"The best way to be truthful is to do what is right all the time, not just some times.
TRUTHFULNESS always has better results than lying or being hypocritical.
This young woman is very eager to share her beliefs, relating to TRUTHFULNESS in particular,
with the desire to share two passages from the Bible; 1 John 1:6 and 3:18, which read, If we say that
we have fellowship with Him (Jesus), and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not practice the
truth:...My little children let us not love in word, neither in talk; but in action and in truth. Joy's
motto for living is those verses, for she says that they "show we have to be truthful by doing what is
right and in so doing we are demonstrating God's love.
Joy gives credence to everyone in her whole family in fostering a desire to live in
TRUTHFULNESS as a way of life. She says that each member has taught her about the character
-quality of TRUTHFULNESS by their example and made it easy for her to learn, and most of all, she
wants to help others understand here in Gilchrist that we live in a County of Character because it is
a County that Cares.
Joy is the Granddaughter of Marshall and Frances Clements of Cross City. Her Mother, Lori
Clements Powell, graduated from Dixie County High School.

Buddy Martin's

Weekly Sports Commentary
The 2005 Gators: Home boys
GAINESVILLE The only title they wound
up playing for was a mythical one, but at least the .-...
Florida Gators can call themselves state champions.
If they had been members of the Atlantic Coast .
Conference, they could probably have won the
Atlantic Division and gone to Jacksonville next '.
weekend instead of the team they just thumped, 34-7. f
They just can't play in the Southeastern Conference A
title game.
Oh, what might have been!
"We're a new program and we hit a few speed
bumps," explained Florida coach Urban Meyer.
Expectations had been running so high since last December when
the highly acclaimed coach from Utah signed on as Florida's
coach, but it just never came together. Until Saturday.
As Florida-Florida State games go, this wasn't one for the
archives, unless it was Meyer's personal scrapbook.
The Gators played their best game of the year and beat the
bejabbers out of the team that will represent one side of the ACC
against Virginia Tech. So Florida gets the Sunshine State bragging
rights, but no ring and no cigar. And FSU gets to go play for the
league championship.
It's hard to believe how good this same team in orange and
blue played on Saturday, from offense to defense to special teams.
The Florida game plan was stellar. And the execution was first
rate particularly on special teams and defense, which produced
27 points on four turnovers and a blocked field goal.
Without question all the recruits on hand for this game those
trying to decide whether to become Gators or Seminoles had to
be impressed.
So I asked coach Urban Meyer why. Was it better preparation,
better mental approach, more time to scheme with an open date?
He couldn't answer it, except it was the home field advantage at
"The Swamp" where the environment was "electric" and that
players "committed to and believe in."
They just don't do so well when they leave the friendly
confines sometimes. It's too bad the Gators could have taken this
kind of thunder with them to other SEC venues, because it most
certainly would have brought rain.
"We obviously have an issue on the road," Meyer responded,
"which will be addressed. I will evaluate everything from Point A
to Point C on what we do, what we eat, how much butter is on the
table and everything else. And figure out why we are struggling.
"We're going to change our routine and everything. Because if
it's not working, you've got to change."
The road in the Southeastern Conference is the highway of hard
knocks. And as Meyer found out in Baton Rouge, Tuscaloosa and
Columbia, you don't find any love there.

Check Out This 8-Pointer!


Though they won no championships, the 2005 Gators did earn
a measure of success. They wound up 6-0 and unbeaten at home,
with wins over Tennessee, Georgia and FSU. Meyer's 8-3 record
was better than any season by Ron Zook, the best since the days
of Steve Spurrier and one game better than the 01' Ball Coach's at
South Carolina.
Instead of being among the bottom
. ..i:. : feeders and vying for a spot in Shreveport, the
Gators are live for a possible berth in the
Outback Bowl, which is a $2.85 million
payday, about $1.45 million more than the
S Independence.
"'. Meyer still has a lot to learn about his
S team and this bowl preparation will give him a
chance .to put some of the players into
perspective.
It was a night of celebration for the
Gators, however, and as the 41-year-old head
coach jogged to the north end zone to join the players and the fans
in singing the school song, he did a drive-by of the student section
and pumped his fist.
He knows now the speed bumps can be negotiated.
The butter can be changed, or even eliminated.
And the future is already beginning to look better.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. Difficult as it may be to believe, Florida State could win up
losing five games in a row after a 5-0 start should the 'Noles get
beat next weekend in the ACC Championship Game.
2. Gator fans are also excited about Billy Donovan's basketball,
which is 5-0 after beating FSU Friday night at the 0-Dome.
3. Frankly, after the great seasons by both, I hope USC and Texas
will get
a chance to settle the argument for No. 1 at the Rose Bowl.
4. A little birdie in the press box told me before kickoff that the
Outback Bowl may offer South Carolina a bid to play against a
Big Ten opponent, but afterward the bowl official told the media
Florida has also become an attractive candidate.
5. I1 picked him to win the Heisman before the season and watched
his magnificent play for Texas, I but now must move Longhorns
quarterback Vince Young to No. 2 on my Heisman ballot in favor
of USC's Reggie Bush depending on what happens Saturday.
Short Stuff:
ESPN will report today its "Outside the Lines"
investigative show that some college football players are living in
subsidized housing normally set aside for poor families, naming
Iowa, Nebraska and Virginia Tech as three of the culprits Bobby
Bowden is now 17-14-1 against the Gators.
Today's Proverb
You may forget with whom you laughed, but you will never forget
with whom you wept.
And good moringF.
All you downtrodden FSU fans. Stop with the retirement
talk for Bobby Bowden. And remember what Joe Paterno did at
Penn State this season.

make .ou forget problems and
,they can bring happiness and
laughter into people's lives, and
that's a lot to be grateful for.
SWell, .the buttons are counted
an4 we are now ready for your
guesses, as to how many are in the
jar. We will have the buttons Dec.
3rd parade da\ at Bell in our
booth. The person who guesses the
exact amount or closest to it
,L without going over will win a $50
savings bond. Proceeds go to
benefit 4 Pets Sake programs. Jan.

American Legion Post -149 in
New berrn for our charity auction,,
the v inner will be announced
then. The buttons were donated
from Connie Lindell of Fanning

concern and thoughtfulness. This
is a cool fund raising project.

Last year the Gilchrist Co.
Education Foundation and Bell
PTA offered their approval to
finance Debbie Rush and her first
giade class at Bell Elementarn to
make, bake. distribute, and sell
DIoggone Dog Biscuits. The
proceeds were donated to 4 Pets
Sake to be used in our spay-neuter
program. Since all the participants
felt so strongly about the growing
problem of pet o er population in
Gilchrist Co.; we promised to keep


M e


a record of the surgeries that were
performed on pets from the money
they earned to be used for pets of
Gilchrist Co. residents only. 4 Pets
Sake is pleased to tell you that we
have done 32 spay-neuters from
the money received.
Make no mistake about it we
love the other counties too and we
still do surgeries for all; but the
fact that this one class had such
motivation in their beliefs to help
the dilemma makes me admire the
caring young hearts that achieved
so much. Thank you all.

DID YOU KNOW?
Adequate levels of vitamin C each day could help fight the
battle of the bulge. Registered dietician Carol Johnson of Arizona
State University says that even small deficiencies of vitamin C
may contribute to obesity as vitamin C makes carnitine, a
substance that helps cells bum fat. She found that people with
adequate vitamin C, found in oranges and kiwis, break down 30
percent more fat than those with low amounts of vitamin C. (The
National Enquirer)
The first at-home laser device is bringing relief to thousands of
chronic pain sufferers, freeing them from having to take dangerous
drugs. It works wonders on inflamed muscles and joints, and pain
expert Dr. Martin Johnson says it will be of great help to people
with osteoarthritis, the most common form of that agonizing
disease. It's also effective for back pain, and most conditions
respond well after just three or four 10-minute sessions. It eases
pain by delivering heat to damaged cells. The device, called
Terraquant, is safe for home use because it zaps the affected area
with only low doses of laser energy. (Sun)
A form of vitamin E found in pecans and some sesame seeds
slow the growth of cancer cells. In tests, the substance
gammatocopherol has been particularly effective in treating
cancers of the lung and prostate. Remarkably, it appears to target
malignant cells while leaving healthy cells untouched. "We
discovered that as we increased-the quantity of gammatocopherol,
the cancer cells grew more slowly," says Dr. Qing Jian, of Purdue
University. "But the healthy cells grew normally." Unfortunately,
most vitamin supplements another form of vitamin E,
alphatocopherol, which apparently has no cancer-fighting ability,
so the only reliable source is pecans. (Sun)
Good news for drivers who get scrambled when they have to
back into a tight parking spot an egg-shaped car that can pivot 360
degrees so its back becomes its front. Called the Pivo, the vehicle
is the latest design innovation from Japanese carmaker Nissan. It's
powered totally by electricity, and it can pull off its astounding
spin-around maneuver because its steering and wheels are
controlled by wireless electronics, not mechanical parts. The three-
seater is also equipped with heat-sensitive monitors on the steering
wheel that enable the driver to operate the radio, air conditioning
and other devices just by lifting his or her fingers. For example,
raising one finger might activate the left turn signal, raising two
might switch on the interior lights. It's expected to be in
showrooms in a couple of years. (Sun)
Hit the bull's eye and win a song. Miss and end up in the
doctor's office. Either way, men in Switzerland win with a new
urinal set up in public bathrooms to test for prostate problems. The
contraptions come with sensors designed to measure the force and
angle of each guy's spritz. A hit that's strong and arched high
enough sets off a recording of the European soccer anthem Ole,
Ole, Ole, Ole. A weak stream and low angle triggers an audio clip
recommending that the man make an appointment with is doctor.

Henry always did have a reputation as a hothead. So when he
lost his temper and started ranting and raving it really didn't
surprise anyone. But when he pulled out a gun and pointed it at
Tom Benton, some other people had to jump in and stop what may
well have been a real problem. Fortunately, others did indeed
jump in and no one was hurt. But darned if the same thing didn't
happen when Preston Brooks got mad at Charlie Sumner for
picking on one of Sumner's relatives .one Andy Butler and
started attacking Sumner with his cane., Nearly beat him senseless
before others could stop them.
According to sociologists, violence in our society has become a
real problem. Yep. No question that it's a problem. But they are
wrong that it has become a problem. Any historian will tell you in
no uncertain terms that violence has always been a problem in this,
country. Strangely, it is one of the hazards of a free society. When
you have a climate where people are allowed to speak and act
freely, they are going to make others mad. And in doing so, they
may become the victims of an attack.
I know that happened when Ben Tillman said something that
angered John McLaurin. John took offense and ran back over to
Tillman and punched him in the eye. Well, Ben was not one to
back down. He punched John right back in the nose, and the fight
was on. No guns this time, but witnesses said there sure was a lot
of blood on the floor before it was over. Clair found out that
people can get mad for just expressing an opinion, and he took a
knot to the head over it. Peter, he didn't do all that well either,
when Weldon pulled a knife on him and literally cut his arm. It
was serious enough to require about 30 stitches and two days in the
hospital. Violence in society has been, and is going to be, a
problem I guess. So I guess that we should all be glad that we
have laws and a good police force to not only keep the peace, but
to catch those who perpetrate the violence and a good court system
to make the violators pay for such acts.
And those laws are, of course, made by our duly elected
legislators in Washington. We look to them to make the rules and
regulations that keep us safe, and yet not restrict our constitutional
freedoms. After all, no one should be harmed or beaten just for
their beliefs, should they? No, I don't think anyone would think
that expressing your opinion would be cause for physical violence.
So I'm glad that we have those good folks in Washington to make
the laws and keep us safe, so we don't have to worry about the
likes of a John McLaurin, or a Ben Tillman, or a Tom Benton.
Oh wait! Maybe we do! Guns, knives, sticks and weapons?
It's a Little Known Fact that everyone I just mentioned did commit
those violent acts, and they did them in a most unusual place:
where they work. Yes. Those violent acts were all committed in
one place the place that makes the laws to keep us safe: the


United States Senate!

DISCUSSION
The meeting began without the
#presence of Mr. Frank Darabi. Arthur
4Bellot stated that he had talked with
I him today and he will be arriving
around 2:30 PM.
A Billy Keen was unable to attend
rdue to sickness.
5 Commissioner Lamb introduced
'Mr. Eric Poole and Mr. Bob McKee of
r'Florida Association of Counties in
Tallahassee.
l Bob McKee spoke with the Board
about the 2005 Growth Management
Bill-SB 360. He presented a summary
of the Bill.
SImpact fees are not a tax and must
Ibe used for infrastructure only. You do
Inot have to have a Florida Statutes to
charge an impact fee. Taxes can only
kbe charged according to Florida
Statutes (General Law).
An impact fee must have a dual
[rational nexus (demand for services for
new infrastructure).
| Mr. McKee handed 'out power
point printouts regarding Impact Fee
lReview Task Force and Impact Fees in
SFlorida: A Practitioner's Perspective.
"J.e informed the Board if they have
questions-about qualified infrastructure
to contact Sarah Bleakley, Special
Gpunsel for FAC
i:'. To protect the County, Mr. McKee
:recommended having a study done
,regarding impact fees. The advantage
o impact tees allows the county to put
,.cpst on ne%, development that creates
impact
Commissioner Hays discussed
growth impact in the county; roads and
solid waste Solid Waste is a big
tnTpact The origin of impact fees is
:M'ater and sewer
I" Nlr McKee discussed areas that
i.,inpaci tees can be imposed; roads,
schools,. parks & recreations, libraries,
r public safer. water & sewer, and solid
i waste He stated that as you look at
these issues. do not wipe any off the
b table Some counties have as many as
seen impact fees
Arthur Bellot stated that he
Sesiimates less than a year to having to
.put another truck and driver on the
Road to haul solid waste to the regional
t- landfill Impact fees will allow to pay
for the truck but not the driver. .
IMr McKee agreed ihat this is the
#correct concept
EmergencN Medical vehicles
Smileage as d discussed.
Mr. McKee stated that a special
assessment can be charged for EMS
infrastructure. EMS station and trucks
are fair infrastructure You can draw a
line around a certain area and tax the
gro, ith area This can be done by vote
of the Board; a referendum is not
.needed
Commissioner Land inquired as to.
'ho, v.e can operate the station once it
'is built if %e can't use the impact fees
'to fund the Aork.
r' Mr McKee stated that the world
tomorroww will be different from today.
,You can not use the impact fee check
book for general :operaiton One out of
',wo residents has homestead
exemption, so they are not paying
taxes There are no easy answers.
Growth concerns are top problems.
'The newcomers rani what they had
Sphere they came from plus they create
,ness de\elopmntent impact
S Commissioner HaHs commented
on ihe Jena road and how narrow it is.
The way land is being divided and
condo's going up inm this area, there
iill be need of an EMS station -. thin
the nest 5-6 .ears
e Mr. McKee said that planning is
:important You could begin collecting
lan impact fee tclad but .ou shouldn't
'.ssait fiue years to build
Arthur Bellot stated it mai come
to pas that the state allo,.s another
a$25,000 off for homestead e\emption.
:We are just beginning to see some
:properties come on the tax roll If this
*eempion happens., e i\ll see a big
.set back.
S Mr McKee discussed the Citizen's
-Petinon Reform Ii sill more than
likel. be passed o\er min November.
'The front has ssittched to "save our
"homes on the propertyb ta\ issue.
SCommissioner Lamb stated that
tjr'tpact fees for ssater must be non-


re'curring. A discussion on impact of.
water capacity needed followed
Arthur Bellot stated that Jena
talfead\ needs water and sewer
. '
S A discussion on impact fees
collectedd to use onl, in .Jena follo,&ed
Chad Reed stated that a
-geographic zone ma tbe an answer.
j Mr EriP Poole came forward and
discussed differential impact fees.
, Commissioner Valentine stated
.hat Horseshoe Beach continues to
fgrow and he feels that it is about to
'.hase greater growth
a. Commissioner Lamb inquired
about the implementation process.
Mr. McKee stated the county must
gw through an ordinance adoption
process, adiertisini. hearings, eic.
It can be done anytime of the year. We


will talk with some other counties and
let you know how they progressed.
Citizen's support is high, most of the
time. If school impacts are not affected
you can knock off $5000 of those fees.
Commissioner Lamb inquired
about school impact fees.
Mr. McKee stated that schools do '
not have authority to impose impact
fees. The Board of County
Commissioners controls the impact
fees. Study says that, within
perimeters of the law, here is how
much their share is. The BCC decides
where to charge it. Homeowners loose
and keep going to Legislature and they
loose again.
Discussion followed. Legislature
says we can charge up to here, but we
decide we will charge along here. We
cut ourselves.
Condo's impact to the county was
discussed.
Commissioner Driggers
commented that he still has problems
with charging children and
grandchildren that have lived here all
their lives.
Commissioner Land inquired if an
impact fee is charged to a county
resident that moves to another place
within the county.
John Jenkins replied that they are
charged if they move a mobile home.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that he has children and grandchildren
that will pay. I have to pay the same
gas prices as the next person.
Mr. McKee stated that it is only
new homes.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
we need to look at how impact fees
meet up with the Growth Management
Bill.
Arthur Bellot stated that you have
to track fees collected every seven
years and must be spent within the
seven years. "Use it or lose it".
Commissioner Hays stated that he
has an administrative concern and
thinks another person should be hired
to help Cindy Dey in the Finance
Office.
Mr. Poole stated that impact fees
are not a cure all. That is why a study
is important. If you are only collecting
minimum for road impact fees you may
not want to collect for road
improvement.
SB360, how important is it to you?
Mr. Poole informed the Board that it is
something they need to adopt. You
must have a financially feasible CIE.
You have until December 1, 2007 to be
in compliance.
An ordinance, regarding
proportionate fair-share funding was
discussed. A developer must go to the
utilities source for assurance of supply;
this has always been in place.
Arthur Bellot discussed a sign off
sheet that had been prepared for the
developer to do this and our county
attorney said that we could not do it.
Mr. Poole inquired when the last
time the Comprehensive Plan was
amended. It can be amended twice a
year.
Commissioner Lamb stated it was
amended in November of 1991.
Mr. Poole. discussed the
Evaluation Appraisal Report (EAR).
The county needs to do this. Of
course, this is a suggestion. Also, the
Land Use Regulation Plan needs to be
amended. The North Central Regional
Planning Council (NCRPC) could do
this or come in and guide you. You
would benefit from an outside source.
Commissioner Hays stated that we
are outgrowing all services,
Commissioner Land inquired as to
how long it would take to get
everything done to begin the impact
fees charge.
Mr. McKee replied that it is a
complicated matter, but you are a small
county. Therefore, it should be less
than six months.
Commissioner Lamb introduced
Mr. Frank Darabi, County Engineer, as
he came in. He told Mr. Poole and Mr.
McKee that he has been designated to
do the study.
Mr. Darabi stated that the study
has been completed.
Arthur Bellot stated that school
enrollment has declined' over the last
few years, due to child bearing age
residents moving for employment
elsewhere.
Commissioner Lamb asked that
proportionate share funding be
discussed for the benefit of Mr. Darabi.
Commissioner Hays stated that
when a developer comes to the
Building & Zoning Department they
must show where water & sewer is
coming before they are issued a permit.
Mr. Darabi presented his study.
After reviewing the study with the
Board, he stated that the Board needs
to decide how much of an impact fee
they are to charge. Mr. Darabi
b recommended between $2,500 and
'$3,000.
John Jenkins informed the Bc,'ard
that Gilchrist County recenil:, ra.iied
their impact fee from $1,400 to $3,500.
Commissioner Hays stated that
Levy County is going to $3,000 and we
are going to get the spill over, if we
don't do something soon.
Mr Darabi slated ihat he is only a
consuliani and I can onl, recommend.
But I recommend $2,500 to $3,000.
This study has been ready for over a
month. The previous scheduled
workshop got cancelled due to.
increment sealher
Commissioner Lamb stated that
there is no sense in going through all
this and voting on a minute amount.
Mr. Darabi stated that he could
prepare the documents and recommend
them at the next regular Board meeting.'


1 1or vote to begin the process for
ordinance.
Mr. Jack Spivey asked if the
applicants for permits, do not have the
money could use SHIP funds.
Commi-iiioner Flays stated that the
'SHIP monitoring was going on this
week.
Commissioner Lamb said we need
to get started and set aside SHIP funds
to help families.
Mr. Darabi stated that the County
Atiomrne will need to draft an
ordinance regarding the impact fees
and advertise it for a public hearing.
Impact fees ,will be based on impact not
income. If you are ever challenged, it
can not be proved that you are charging
too much, because you are not
charging enough in realish. There will


be no exemptions; that is fairness.
Arthur Bellot discussed growth in
the EMS department.
The Board discussed the way the
impact fees will be broken out;
transportation, EMS/Fire, Parks &
Recreation, Law Enforcement, and
Building & Zoning.
Building-& Zoning fees need to be
raised to allow funding of a larger
building and extra employees.
Commissioner Lamb stated the
county also needs a communications
update.
The (800) system was discussed.
Mr. McKee invited the Board to
the policy making process in
Tallahassee. Commissioner Lamb is
on the council ind w6 certainly
appreciate him.
Commissioner Lamb thanked Bob
and Eric for coming to an individual
county workshop. Mr. Lamb
apologized to them for the staff that
was unable to attend.
Commissioner Hays complimented
them on bringing this to Dixie
County's attention and condensing it
into 10 pages from approximately 100
pages for faster review.
The Board thanked them for
supporting them in Tallahassee.
Arthur Bellot stated that we are a
small county and we don't have the
staff that can lobby for us; it falls on
the Commissioner's and me.
Mr. McKee and Mr. Poole
reminded them to talk to their
Legislature. They thanked the Board
for having them and said, "Let us know
what we can do for Dixie County. We
work for you".
ADJOURNED
The workshop was adjourned at
4:10 PM.

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' Gramps 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 watch over us let us know
you're still here,
Be 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,

Mother Mary
Days go by that remind us of you
You touched our hearts and loved us anew
The night lingers and closes in with
memories embrace
Our solace is knowing
you are now in His grace
We are astounded by our loss
a burden so great
Time was not our hero, some were too late
We are now void of Mother, lover and friend
Who was to know one such as you,
gone like the wind
No more tales of fishing, books,
the boys or my new shoes
But the memories, thank you God
for those we do not lose
It seems we only had taste of the joy, love
and laughter you could bring
With your passing come the shadows
on a birds wing
There are brighter days ahead for our
recovering hearts, this we know
Yet at times that goes on for eons,
the healing is slow
We miss you here Mother Mary,
our hearts still sore
Though we know you're at peace,
we wanted more

Who You'd Be Today
Sung by Kenny Chesney
Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
See your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can't believe you're gone
It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that Fve been through
Just knowing, no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder, who you'd be today
Would you see the world?
Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Some days the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy
Today, Today
Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat,
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I'll see you again someday
Someday, Someday
Always missing you,
Love you with all our hearts.

alive," said Debra Gomez of Gainesville. Debra plans to attend Bethlehem Live! this year with her
first grade class from Cornerstone Academy. "It is an unforgettable experience for my students. It
puts history in context and helps them to really understand the sights and smells of the Old
Testament."

Floridians. Event organizer Windy Bridges believes this year's event will set a new standard.
"Thanks to the commitment of our congregation, we've been able to make this year's event possible.

2,000 years ago."

The ladies of the Holy Cross Mission Church, Council of Catholic Women enjoyed cooking
and serving up 165 meals at their Annual Thanksgiving Dinner,
While there is a lot of work involved in putting together a feast for 165 or more, this project is
by far one of the favorites for the ladies and they plan to keep the tradition alive. For many of the
seniors served, it was the only way they were going to get a Thanksgiving dinner.
Holy Cross Mission was built in 1970 with their dedication ceremony held in June of 1971.
Bishop Tanner and Father Altenbaugh officiated. Father Altenbaugh would be one of several
priests to serve the church, including Father William, Father Julien, Father Hogarty, Father Dux,
Father Pendergraft and currently Father Joe Maniangat.
Prior to the Mission being built Catholics in the area traveled to Gainesville and Trenton and
even held services in a real estate office in Fanning Springs, the Air Force Radar Base, Suwannee
Gables Motel the Woman's Club and even Gooding's Funeral Home, proving that it doesn't
really matter where we worship, only that we do.
Last year the Mission added on to their church and added a new social hall. Like the church,
the congregation has grown as well. There were only six practicing Catholics in the beginning,
today the rural mission is home to 134 parishioners.
On November 26th Father Maniangat retired, however, he was on hand at the Thanksgiving
Dinner to give the blessing, one of his final acts as the Mission's priest. Father Kurian Nediakala
is now the acting priest for the church and has been embraced by its members. He also knows he
will be put to work next year, helping with the Thanksgiving Dinner preparations.
Yes, this small rural mission has come a long way with its members knowing how much they
have been blessed and have chosen to extend those blessings to those in need; feeding their
neighbors spiritually as well as at their .very special Thanksgiving Dinner.


Don't Lose Sight of
Diabetic Eye Disease

(NAPSA)-Approximately 13
million Americans have been diag-
nosed with diabetes and an addi-
tional 5.2 million have the disease
and don't know it. Diabetes can
cause a number of health compli-
cations such as heart disease, kid-


ney failure and sight-threatening
eye diseases, which often have no
early warning signs.
Diabetic retinopathy is the most
common form of diabetic eye dis-
ease. It is a complication that
occurs when diabetes damages the
tiny blood vessels inside the retina.
To reduce the risk of vision
loss, the National Eye Institute of
the National Institutes of Health
encourages people with diabetes


to have a dilated eye exam every
year and keep their health on
TRACK:
Take your medications as
prescribed by your doctor.
Reach and maintain a
healthy weight.
Add more physical activity to
your daily routine.
Control your ABCs-A1C,
blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
Kick the smoking habit.
