Governor Bush Awards Rural

Development Grant To Regional

Tourism Marketing Organization

Governor Jeb Bush awarded a $35,000 Regional Rural
Development Grant to The Original Florida, Inc., a regional :.
tourism marketing company on Tuesday, December 20. The grant
will assist Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, 1
Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and |,M
Union counties. In 2003, Governor Bush declared this rural,
north central region one of Florida's three Rural Areas of Critical 1
Economic Concern.
"The Original Florida, Inc. has achieved remarkable success
in promoting tourism and recreation in the region," said Governor.
Bush. The expansion of nature-based, and heritage tourism is an
important component of the region's strategic economic plan, and
this grant will serve as a strategic tool to help them meet their
goals."
Since 10Q8. The Original Florida. Inc. has served as a,
regional tourism development organization; developing and
promoting tourism opportunities throughout the 12 county rural
region. The initiative highlights the region's pristine lakes, creeks
and rivers, forests and wildlife, as well as many heritage events,
small towns and landmarks.
"The Original Florida is extremely proud to have been
awarded this staffing grant," said Harvey Campbell, Marketing
Director of The Original Florida. "It will greatly assist our rural
region in new tourism marketing initiatives as an economic
development tool. We are especially grateful to Governor Bush
and the Legislature for recognizing the challenges facing rural
counties to create jobs and participate in the economic prosperity
currently being enjoyed in Florida."
Rural economic development initiatives, including the
Regional Rural Development Grant Program, are overseen by the
Governor's Office of Tourism, Trade, and Economic
Development. Since 1999, Governor Bush has worked to
enhance the economies and overall competitiveness of rural Florida. Among his many rural-based
initiatives, Governor Bush established the "Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern" program,
providing designated rural areas with greater access to the state's economic incentive programs.

Santa's surprise
If you were to ask me if I still believed in Santa Clau .. I would
.iave to qualify my answer by asking whether or not he works for
Progress Energy Florida, Inc., one of the two power companies that
bio a very adequate job of providing electrical service to this area.
You see, last week I got my electric bill for the previous month,
tnd it came to a grand total of (are you ready for this?) $9.04! Yes,
'I got the decimal point in the right place. My electricity for most of
Novemberr and the early part of December cost me exactly nine
.dollars and four cents, cash American. And no, I have not switched
ever to solar heat, I am not burning candles and cooking on a
;Stemo stove (except when there's a hurricane). I was assessed this
modest sum for what was presumably a normal month's use of
electricity.
However, putting this matter in perspective requires me to
:'elate that my previous month's bill was $140.71, and that for a
,month during which I was out of town for nearly a week.
lkveraging out the two months, I come up with a figure of $74.875,
dhich is about what I would expect, give or take a half-cent or two.
Some of you might think I'm complaining, but actually, this
-loesn't bother me. It's been going on for more than a year, and
S've gotten used to it. Every now and then, I'll get a few months
where the electric bills seem about right, after which they will
*alternate between improbably high to absurdly low.
I kind of like it that way, though. When the monthly assess-
ment comes in the mail, I don't just regard it as another bill to
hpay, I eagerly open the envelope, wondering what.the impact of its
-content will mean to my budget.
In this regard, my December bill is indeed welcome. With my
electricity setting me back only $9.04, I can really splurge when I
Vtart my Christmas shopping in the next day or two. Doggone,
those folks at Progress Energy really know how to make a guy feel
roodat Christmas time! .
And since we're on the subject of Clhrismias. let me alert my
3oyal readers to the fact that employers at various businesses (more
likely to be found in Gainesville than around here-another reason
*to shop locally) have become so intimidated by the moon-bats of
the tar left that they' re not displaying anything that might so much
as suggest that Christmas is (or at least once was.) a celebration of
the birth of, Jesus Christ, and ad ising their employees to say,
t"Happy Holidays" to their customers, rather than "Merry
.Christunas." ,
SWell. it'. seems that the traditional "Merry Christmas" might
}offend someone like Michael Newdow, who wants "under God"
taken out of the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" taken
off our coins and currency. To which I heartily recommend that
.: Mr. Ne'.dow get a job, preferably as a union organizer targeting
}underpaid workers at a factory in Communist China, where he


won't be bothered by the tyranny of organized religion.
t One way to deal with a "Happy Holidays" from a store clerk is
.to ask. "What Holidays?" If you get a blank stare, look of
' frustration, or whatever, just say, "It's all right if you want to wish
4 me a Merry Christmas, I won't tell your boss": and regardless of
Whether or not this motivates a "Merry Christmas" out of a
L reluctant store clerk, you can respond to "Happy Holidays" by
j, extending the traditional greeting yourself
Therefore, let me take this occasion to wish a Merry Christmas
to each and every one of you, and especially to Progress Energy
Florida, Inc.

Letter To The Editor
It Goes Against Nature
To live in harmony with nature is the idea relationship with
God. This is the concept reflected in the biblical Garden of Eden.
Propagation is the resulting idea with God and sex and since it
is impossible for two of the same sex to product children the
homosexual relationship may very well go against nature.
However, we can't morally condemn those that choose this life
style. To do so appears to glorify the heterosexuals and heaven
knows that few of these are perfect either.
Gluttony and lust are other immorality that reveal themselves
in stark character in society for they are socially and self
destructive. Others traits are those of overbearing and ingratitude.
These breeds distrain and contempt where there is grace and
goodwill. For all saints are not born. Some are made by the
hardship of intolerance situations* By the choice of their own
integrity these people deals with this with grace. Even if it means
having their own lives destroyed. So this in no way justify the
injustice imposed upon them.
The horrent result of these situations may be what creates the
storms that strikes the inhumane and insensitive cultivating
depravity at the expense of others with goodwill. To those that
prosperous for a time and loses everything in these storms, any
humane or social grace extended are noble. But for those that find
no ready help or service, who can point a finger or cry, failure.
Gladys Rollinson

Springhouse Quilter's News
The officers and members
of Springhouse Quilters are
now making their final plans
for the beginning of the 2006
quilting year. Their first .
endeavor will be their beginner
classes which are scheduled to
begin the last of January and .
will continue for 8 to 10
weeks. The classes
will provide basic lessons to
help a beginning quilter get
introduced to the wonderful
world of quilting.
The classes will teach the Ruth Davis is showing a f


Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"David and Goliath"
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say (1 Samuel 17:28)
Eliab rebuked David so shaply and tried so hard to discourage him, that
finally David turned away from his brother altogether. I know it hurt him
to do so, for I had to do the same thing one day. Remember, the father sent
him first of all to his own brethren. But when they would not receive, he
had to either turn away or lose the glory of that hour.
I the Day of the Lord, say when it dawned on me the glory of what
God was going to do in these last days in His church, I just knew that I
could show my brethren and that they would be glad and rejoice and
accept it whole heartedly. How simple I was! How much I had to- learn
about the ways of organized religion. They not only refused to listen to
God's word, but they were ready to cast me out without a reason. I had to
cry with David (vs. 29) "Is there not acause?" Finally the words of David
came to Saul. And he was desperate. Something had to be done. So he
talked to David. First he began telling David all the reasons why he would
fail, looking only at the natural side.
I the Day of the Lord, say David was too immature, the giant was too
much of a WARRIOR. Never a word about faith in God, the power of the
anointing. Saul was no longer depending on the spirit of God. All David
could answer Saul was his testimony of the times when God had come to
his rescue in the wilderness against the lion and the bear. All this must
have sounded rather childish to Saul, who had fought many battles.
I the Day of the Lord, say But alright, David, if you insist go ahead,
but wear my armour. Let me show you how it is done, since you obviously
don't know how to run a church or have revivals. Notice in verses 38 and
39 that Saul put the armour on David, and that David took it off. Praise
God! Hang your armour back up, Saul, it didn't work. It didn't work for
you and it wont work for me.
I the Day of the Lord, say If organization could have brought the
church to perection, then it would have been perfect long ago. If forming
denominations could take Goliath's head off and put satans power under
our feet, then we have had many hundreds of chances at it. But it was the
anointing on Saul that enabled him to defeat the Philistines at the first, and
now that the anointing is gone, no amount of armour will make up for it.
I the Day of the Lord, say It was the anointing that made the
Pentecostal movement great in the beginning, and now they are trying to
make up for the lack of it with committees, departments, activities, etc.
But it won't work now any better than it did for Saul. Hang up your
armour and cry out to God to restore the anointing of the spirit. Continued.

The classes teach the beginner the importance of the correct
fabric selection and choices of color in light, dark and medium

Abundant Life & Living
By Lucille Stockton
Merry Christmas!

Joy to the world the Lord has
come, let us all open the door of
our hearts and let him come in, -
abide and rule our lives. He will : ,
lead us in all ways of his grace
and truth. If we follow his lead.
There will never be any mistakes,
wreaks or collisions. Every
crooked way is made straight,
every mountain is made lot. Every
valley is exulted in Him. There will be peace on earth and good
will toward all the human family; simply because we accepted
our savior and made Him Lord of our lives.

Christmas Day while we are opening our presents, toys and
observing the trees and beautiful decorations. Watching our
children's faces light up with Christmas cheer. The tables set
with our fine china, crystal and lovely flatware, the aroma of
turkey, ham, roast beef, cakes, pies, cookies and all the
trimmings coming from the kitchen, making ready for the
family feast. Of all that we encountered in our great USA, this
year 2005 we are blessed. We can praise ourselves for how we
responded to our brothers and sisters in the hurricane crisis.
Although I must ask that we pause in our celebration to say a
special prayer for them. "Love Life And Live It".

The Word Made

Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. i, ine
son of man, say The salvation of
man begins at his birth and
continues until the end of his life
and afterwards to eternity. The
operation of the Divine providence
goes on unceasingly through
means, out of pure mercy.
Instantaneous salvation from
mercy apart from means is
impossible. Instant salvation from
mercy apart from means is "the
fiery flying serpent" in the church.
A heaven from the human race is
the essential end of the creation of
; the universe, and that this end in its
operation and progress is the
Divine providence for the salvation
of men; also that all things exterior
to man, and that are serviceable to
him in the way of use, are
secondary ends of creation, which
in brief have relation to all things
in the three kingdoms, the animal,
the vegetable, and the mineral.
When these things go forth
regularly in accordance with the
laws of Divine order established in
their first creation, how is it
possible for the primary end,
which is the salvation of the
human race, not to go forth
regularly in accordance with laws
of. its order, which are the laws of
the Divine providence? I, the son
of man, say Watch a fruit tree.
Does it not first have birth as a
slender shoot from a small seed,
and does it not afterwards
gradually grow to a trunk and
spread forth branches, which are
covered with leaves, and then put
forth blossoms, and bring forth
fruit, depositing therein-new seeds
by which it provides its perpetuity?
The same thing occurs with every
shrub, and with every herb of the
field. I, the son of man, say In
these do not each thing and all
things go forth regularly and
..**.-. fillv from end to end in
appears like a man in mne worim,
accordance with the laws of its
order'? Why not likewise the
primary end, which is a heaven
from the human race? Can there
be any thing in its progress that
does not go on most regularly in
accordance with 'the laws of the
Divine providence? As there .is a
correspondence between man's life
and the growth of a tree, let a
parallel or comparison be drawn
between them. Mani's infancy is
comparatively like the tender shoot
of a tree sprouting up out of the
ground from the seed, his
childhood and youth are like that
shoot growing into a trunk with its
little branches; the natural truths
that every one first imbibes are like
the leaves with which the branches
are covered ("leaves" in the word
signifying nothing else); the man's
initiation into the marriage of good
and truth, that is, the spiritual
marriage, is like the blossoms that
the tree brings forth in the spring-
time; spiritual truth are the petals
of these flowers; the primary.
activities of the spiritual marriage
are like the beginnings of thie fruit;
spiritual goods, which are the
goods of charity, arc like thle fruit
(and these are signified by "fruit"
in the word); the procreations of.
wisdom from love are like the
seeds, and by these procreations
man becomes like a garden or a
paradise. I, the son of man,. say
man is depicted in the word by a
"tree"; and his wisdont originating
in love by a "garden" ("the garden
of Eden" signifies nothing else).
In fact, man is a corrupt tree from
the seed; nevertheless, a grafting or
budding with shoots taken from the
tree of life is possible whereby the
sap drawn from old root is turned
into sap forming good fruit.

A Birthday Party For Jesus


This was a very special day at Faith. As we celebrate the birth
of our Savior, Jesus Christ, the festivities are just so special. Sis.
Janet Osteen organized and presented a play entitled "A Birthday
Party for Jesus" for the evening service and if you missed this play,
you missed a blessing beyond measure. We appreciate Sis. Janet
and her husband David so much for the hard work they do in our
midst. They are very special to us and we are so glad God sent
them our way. We had a full house tonight, and after the program,
we all joined in the fellowship hall for finger foods and desserts
and enjoyed even more fellowship.
Bro. Jackie delivered a wonderful message in the morning
service, and Sis. Debbie Phillips sang for us. The Spirit was really
moving in the church all day as all the festivities unfolded. If you
missed any of it you truly missed a blessing.
Next week, we will have regular services on Christmas
morning with no services that night in order to give folks a chance
to have special Christmas time with their families. Then on New
Years Day we will again have church in the morning and no
services in the evening to give our folks time with their families on
New Years.
We had lots of visitors in both services today and we want
them to know they're very special to us. If you don't have a church
home, we invite you to share ours, and if you're just passing
through, we invite you back anytime. We pray that our folks made
you feel welcome and loved and that you could go away saying, "it
was good to be in the house of the Lord".
Remember this week to pray for someone less fortunate, the
sick and shut-ins and especially the lost. Invite a friend, relative,
neighbor or co-worker to Sunday School and Church with you next
week and,we love you and will be looking for you then.

New Prospect Baptist News
Each service is special during this special time of the year.
Sunday, our choir seemed especially in tune with the season,
mixing in a few Christmas songs with the usual praise songs, after
which our children's group blessed us with a special song of their
own. Bro. Billy brought God's message with heartful fervor,
choosing his text from Luke 2:15-16. It was truly a blessing to be
in God's house again.
On Sunday, December 25th, we will have church services at
New Prospect at the usual time, 11:00 A. M., in honor of the birth
of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us in celebratirfg
this most significant of all occasions known to man. Immediately
after the morning service, we will have a baptizing in the church
annex...God is still blessing! There will be no Sunday School nor
evening services at New Prospect that day.
As always, please be in prayer for all the folks on the church
prayer lists, our military personnel, our nation's leaders, and each
other. We at New Prospect wish you a Merry Christmas, and may
the Peace and Love of our Heavenly Father be with you!

Buddy Martin's

Weekly Sports Commentary
Tebow to the rescue


Over the years I've made it a practice
not to project the future of high school football
players about to become collegians or collegians
about to become professionals, because it's just
not possible to be that smart.
College recruiting is a cottage industry
built on the backs of 17- and 18-year old boys.
their parents and their coaches. So right off I've
got.a bigger problem with that that I do the NFL
gurus like Mel Kiper who throw so much stuff
up against the wall that some of it has to stick.


Having said all that, the news last week thati Nease
quarterback Tim Tebow picked Florida over Albatama ,ajs
significant for more reasons than one. Aside from the fact
that he's a big, strong left-hander with football savvy who
appears light years ahead of most high schoolers, he's come
to Gainesville at just the right time.
Urban Meyer could wind up after the Outback Bowl
without an experienced quarterback should Chris Leak
decide to leave early for the NFL Draft (although that
appears unlikely). And even if Leak stays, backup Josh
Portis has transferred and nobody is next in line.
The best scenario would be that Leak passed on the
draft and Tebow strapped on his training wheels
immediately, passing on high school baseball and enrolling
for the spring semester to take part in the Orange and Blue
game.
Having seen Tebow play on TV but holding true to
my belief that one cannot speculate accurately about a
player until he sets foot on the college playing field I will
admit that he reminds me of other quarterbacks I've seen
play in the past.
I'm not going to come out and say he's a left-
handed John Elway, but Tebow does have similar size (6-3,
217), arm strength and running ability as the Denver
Broncos Hall of Famer.
If nothing else, Tebow gets the Good Timing Award
for getting there just in time. Hopefully he'll log some
playing time his first season and not rot on the bench as did
Portis, because clearly Tim Tebow is Urban Meyer's future.
Ouick lJump Starts
1. When, you're old'and crotchety, but lovable like Joe
Grand-Pa Paterno, you can say things like the Penn State
coach uttered to the media recently: "I'll be very up front
i 'with you, I could care less about you guys."
2. Honk your horn if you think the Pat Riley-for-Stan
Gundy coach switcheroo by the Heat wasn't more
predictable than Jane Fonda ditching Ted Turner (or.vice-
.-.versa).
3. As for those who keep asking whether Bucs comer
Ronde Barber punched his ticket to the Hall of Fame by
making 20 sacks and intercepting 20 passes going into
Saturday, no not yet.
4. Dani Hawkins of Boise State was the.best choice for
?.Colorado and I believe under his guidance the Buffaloes
will be a consistent winner soon.
5. Up to 10 NFL coaches are on the hot seat, with
Houston's Dom Capers, Oakland's Norv Turner and
Baltimore's Brian Billick likely first in line to go.

Silly Songs
OK, this one is going to strain your brain a little. Do you
remember "The Witch Doctor?" Here, let me help you a little bit:
Oo-ee, oo-ah-ah, ting-tang, walla-walla-bing-bang. Did that help?
I thought it might! If you think back far enough, you probably
remember that number one hit of 1957. Or if you weren't alive
back then, you've probably heard it on one of the oldie stations.
Nonetheless, it was one of the big hits of the year a number
one record and it literally saved one record company and did one
more thing that I'll bet you didn't know. The creator of this
popular little ditty was a 38-year-old songwriter named Ross
Bogdassarian. One day, while Ross was sitting around in his
study, listening to the new rock and roll music he noticed
something. "All of the teenage records seemed to have one thing
in common," he said. "You can't understand any of the lyrics!"
Boy, do I remember my mother telling me that one.- Made perfect
sense to teenage ears, in my way of thinking.
But back to Ross. He decided that he would write a song, kind
of making fun of the new teen music craze and come up with lyrics
that no one could understand at all. The idea for "The Witch
Doctor" was born. He knew that in addition to the cockamamie
words, he would have to come up with a voice to match. Well,
while fooling around with his tape recorder, running the tape back
and forth, he heard his answer: Record and run it at a higher
speed. That would do it.
He took his little creation to Liberty Records, and the next
thing you know, "Oo-ee, oo-ah-ah, ting-tang, walla-walla-bing-
bang," was all over the airwaves. It was a huge hit. All in all, it
sold about 1.5 million copies, which was phenomenal in 1957.
But it was a couple of years later, when Liberty records found
themselves in a bit of financial trouble, that they once again turned
to Ross and asked him to come up with another hit song to save the
company. He did, but this time, the company executives weren't
listening. They said, "Not another silly witch doctor song!" No,
not this time, although he did use the technology that he had
learned before to make the new tune. It took Ross weeks to talk
the record company into it.
It's a Little Known Fact that the desperate financial straights of
Liberty Records caused them to even try Ross's new idea. But they
did. And sure enough, the funny little recording took off, this time,
selling over four million records and setting Liberty Records on a
path to history. But it was a hard sell for Ross, trying to talk those
hardheaded record company executives into it. So, when the
record hit number one and people started asking if his characters
had names, Ross had a little fun of his own. In a split second
decision, he named the singers after the record company president,
vice chair and engineer, who had given him the most trouble. You
know Alvin, Simon and Theodore ... the Chipmunks!

long. There was a variety in the music and everyone seemed to
really enjoy it.
The aroma that came from the food court was just as
tempting as ever. You didn't know if you wanted some of that
great Bar B Que, a hot dog, Italian Sausage, or just go for cotton
candy,. kettle kern, homemade ice cream or a variety of desserts to
Choose from, plus much more. This was a day to just forget the
calories and enjoy as this is a once a year event, so make the most
of it!
Santa had a great time listening to each of the children as
they went over their wish list and having their picture taken with
him. Each one received a small gift after the visit. Hope he
remembers all of those special wishes come Christmas time!
Did you get over to watch those cute Yellow Rubber Ducks
race do n the river and each one trying to be first in line? What
an exciting time we all h ad pulling for that special one we had
selected earlier. The winners were Sue Gajewski, 1st place; Terri
Tower, 2nd place and Chris Roth was 3rd place winner.
There were about 100 cars entered in the Classic Car Show
thirsyear. It must be very difficult to choose the winners for this
group as they all seem to be the BEST! This group has really got
a wide range of beauties and they are all show material.
The ABATE motorcycle group did not have as many entries
this year but thosethat came were something to admire. The
winners from this event were:
1st place Street over 1000cc -Frank Petrone;
2nd place Street over 1000cc- Felix Burgoyne
S1st Place Rat Bike- Steve Mallady
2nd Place Rat Bike-Harold Hicks

It was great to see toys being donated to the Tri County
Marine Corps. League as they collected toys that would be
distributed to needy families in the Tri County area for Christmas.
It is truly heartwarming to just be a small part in this wonderful
program, knowing that it will bring hope and joy to a child and
their family that possibly would not be able to have a good
Christmas.
The Lighted Boat Parade was as magnificent as ever with
only 10 boats decorated this year, but each one was a dinner! We
are grateful to the Fish & Wildlife Marine Patrol and the Gilchrist
County Rescue Boat for providing their services to ensure the

safety of all. All of the boaters tied. up at the docks behind the
Suwannee Gables Motel & Marina so they could come on shore
and enjoy some hot coffee and hot chocolate along with other
snacks. The awards were presented to the winners. Small Boat
winners were 1st Place- Theresa Jones & Joe Tompkins; 2nd Place
went to William Couey and 3rd Place went to Frank & Cheryl
Nekola of Driftwood Realty. Medium Boat Winners were 1st
Place- Toys for Tots entered by the Tri County Marine Corp
League 2nd Place went to 1cNulty Realty and 3rd Place went to
Jackie & Jessyca Gamble and owned by Roger & Becky Sanford.
The Large Boat winners were 1st Place- Mike Boyer sponsored by
NAPA of Chiefland; 2nd Place Ed & Pam Wessels sponsored by
the Board of Realtors and 3rd Place went to the Red Hat
Accentuaters. An honorable mention was presented to a late entry
sponsored by the Cross City United Methodist Church.
Special thanks to our judges this year who were Donald
Forgione, Bureau Chief for the Florida State Parks Northeast
District; Levy County Commissioner Lilly Rooks and. Walter
Gibson from the Chiefland Citizen. What a tough job they had to
determine these winners. Ba
We are all grateful for the many people that came out to
share in the festivities of the day and know they will carry home
some very good memories and spread the word about what a great
communie we live in.. Thanks to each and everyone that helped
in any Way to make this day so very special.

ADDRESSES: The FIS report and FIRM showing the proposed and proposed modified BFEs and
their delineations are available for inspection at the Community Map Repository for the community.
The Community Map Repository address is listed below.

Dixie County, Unincorporated Areas: Maps available for inspection at the Dixie County Planning
and Zoning Department, 405 Southeast 22nd Avenue, Cross City,: Florida 32628.

Interested parties should send comments to the community CEO at the address listed below.


Dixie County, Unincorporated Areas: Send comments to Mr. Marcus Hays, Chairman of the Dixie
County Board of Commissioners, P.O. Box 2600, Cross City, Florida 32628.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Either the Mapping Partner at 386-362-1001, the
NFIP State Coordinator at 850-413-9960, or the Mitigation Division of FEMA in Region IV at
770-220-5406 and ask for the Regional Project Officer assigned to your community, for assistance.


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA gives notice of the proposed BFE determinations, in
accordance with Section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 (Pub. L. 93-234); 87 Stat.
980, which added Section 1363 to the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 (Title XIII of the Housing
and Urban Development Act of 1968 (Pub. L. 90-448)); 42 U.S.C. 4001-4128; and 44 CFR 67.4(a).

These BFEs, together with the floodplain, management measures required by 44 CFR 60.3 of the
program regulations, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean the
community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain
management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements on its own, or
pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed and
proposed modified BFEs are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and
are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after
the BFEs are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.

Pursuant to the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 605(b), the Director, Mitigation Division of the Emergency
Preparedness and Response Directorate, to whom authority has been delegated by the Secretary of the
U.S. Department of Homeland Security, hereby certifies that the proposed new or modified BFE
determinations, if promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of
small entities. A BFE determination under Section 1363 forms the basis for new local ordinances,
which, if adopted by a community, will govern future construction within the floodplain area. By
themselves, the BFE determinations impose no restriction unless and until the community voluntarily
adopts floodplain ordinances in accord with these BFEs. Even if ordinances are adopted in compliance
with Federal standards, the BFEs only prescribe building height in the floodplain and do not prohibit
development. Thus, this action only forms the basis for future local actions. It imposes no new
requirement; of itself, it has no economic impact.

Lessees and owners of real property in the community listed below are encouraged to review the
Preliminary FIS report, FIRM, and related materials at the Community Map Repository address cited
in the table above and to submit comments to the appropriate community CEOs at the address cited in
the table above. The proposed new or modified BFEs along flooding sources studied by detailed
methods are shown on the Flood Profiles included in the Preliminary copies of the FIS report. The
flooding source studied by detailed methods is as follows:

Pre-K teachers, Cris Siegel, Sherry Roux, Angie Acevedo, and Donna Merring decided that having a snow
t', %.,:uld be a great alternative to several field trips that were on the schedule for the semester, but cancelled
due to the rise in fuel costs. Funding for the snow came from an Early Reading First Grant from Northeast
Florida Education Consortium, with an extra bit put in the pot from the school's internal funds to purchase
enough snow for all the kids to join in a day of fun in tihe s- .! Thanks, Mr. Wadsworth!
The snow came via the Gainesville Ice Company A crc. came :-.rl, in the morning and set up the make-
shilt ski slope and then began to cover it with snow, formed by blowing bags of ice through a machine. Over 8
tons of ice as used for the 60 foot slope and landing area. An extra bit of snow was blown out for an area
\ here the children could do a little snow ball making.
The snov.'. elf was a sight to behold, but more than that was the look on the children's faces as they glided
do\k n the slope Many of the teachers and parents also took the opportunity to do a line sledding
The pictures above show just a small example of just how much fun was had!

of the church donated the pots of flowers as an "In Memory" of loved ones who have passed
away.

MARINE CORPS RESERVE- ":
K- ] 1 .


Volunteers from the Marine Corps and United Christian Services gather for a group picture before
opening the doors at the UCS building where the "Toys For Tots" store was set up.
The Tri-County Marine Corps and United Christian Services, Inc. (UCS) joined forces to make
sure that every child in Dixie County has a Christmas that includes presents under the tree.
Donations of new toys and monetary donations provided enough toys for 600 children this year!
Coordinators Vince and Pat Arcadia were thrilled at the response and all the help they got. Some
34 volunteers, many of whom were from the Tri-County. Marine Corps, came out on December 16t'
to aide in the project, all with smiles on their faces and the Christmas spirit in their hearts.
Two very special helpers were on hand to help as well, CW02 "
Ray Howard and CPL Caleb Bell of the United States Marine
Corps. Howard is a veteran "toys for totter", this being his 3rd year
to travel back to his hometown to help out. Currently he and wife
Libby and son Felton are stationed in Beaufort, SC where he serves
with the Mariner Air Group 31. Howard is a 1994 Dixie County
graduate. Bell served with the United States Marines for four
years and has since returned home to Dixie where he and wife
Joanna and son Aiden reside. Bell is a 2001 graduate of Dixie
County High.
. Both Howard and Bell felt it was an honor to represent the
Corps "Toys For Tots" campaign and was especially proud to be a
part of their hometown drive. The two Marines spent the day
talking with the folks and helping to load vehicles with the toys
and food baskets donated by the UCS and Gainesville Harvest.
The Arcadia's and Marine Corps would like to extend their
heartfelt "thanks" to everyone involved in this year's drive, from
the donors to the volunteers.

"CLERK RETIRES"
Continued from Section A page 1


Commissioners and county department heads expressed their thanks to retiring Clerk of Court,
Joe Hubert Allen, with a plaque.
County Attorney Joey Lander took a few minutes to express their thanks for the years of dedicated
service "Joe Hubert", as Allen's friends call him, has given to the county and its residents.
As Clerk of the Court, it was Allen's job to make sure the Commissioners stayed on track with
their budget. County Coordinator, Arthur Bellot has worked closely with Allen over the years and
commended him for his professionalism and willingness to work with the Commission; a sentiment
expressed by all the Commission as well.
It was an unanimous that Allen will be sorely missed, and with that said, Allen was given a
standing ovation.
The Governor will appoint a replacement for Allen's position who will serve until the next
election, which will be in 2006, and whoever wins that election will serve the remainder of Allen's
two year term.

In Memory Of
Mornm,
It's been one year since you were
called home to be with the Lord.
This has been a hard year to get
through. Everyone says it will get
'easier with time. Without the Lord in
W> .our hearts we could not have made it
through.
-." .* Our peace comes in knowing that
you are now with the Lord and no
longer in pain.
We all miss and love you very
much, but we will always have you
with us as long as we have our memories and love for you.

My 2nd Christmas in Heaven
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
with tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away the tear,
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sound of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
for it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
'I know how much you miss me; I see the pain inside your heart,
But I am not far away we really aren't apart.
So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you dear,
And be glad that I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift, from my Heavenly home above,
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
'After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold,
It was always most important in the story Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other as my Father said to do,
For I can't count the blessings or love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away the tear,
--Remember I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

say goodbye, and let you spread your beautiful wings and fly.
Happy Birthday Joseph we miss you,

RRMS Participates in a
Math-A-Thon for St. Jude
Children's Research Hospital





-44








Shelbi Downing raised the most money over $125 and received a MP3
Player. Meriah Stewart, Courtney Allen, and Ashley McIntosh each
raised $75 or more.
Ruth Rains Middle School held a Math-A-Thon to benefit St.
Jude Children's Research Hospital. The event was held during
October. The students raised money to help St. Jude in its ongoing
fight against childhood catastrophic diseases.
The goal in holding the Math-A-Thon was to help the children
of the world who are stricken with diseases like cancer, AIDS, and
sickle cell disease. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a
world leader in the fight against these diseases, and they have
made great progress, but only because of the help of people like
the citizens of Dixie County. RRMS would like to thank all the
people who contributed to the Math-A-Thon and helped to make it
a success.
The Math-A-Thon is sponsored by Six Flags Theme Parks,
who provides free passes to their parks to every student raising $35
or more through the program.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally
recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving
children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by
the late entertainer Danny Thomas antd based in Memphis, Tenn.,
St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical
communities around the world. No family ever .pays for treatments
not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never
asked to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its
fund-raising organization.

This side of 60...
By Marie Snider
DON'T WASTE
CHRISTMAS
ON THE "HOLIDAY
BLUES"
"Tis the season to be jolly.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la." Yes
indeed, it's almost Christmas.
Reminders are everywhere.
I met Santa in the grocery
store and on Main Street.
Waving and ho-ho-ho-ing, he
made me chuckle and feel
good inside. Christmas
surprises are beginning to
appear under the tree.
Everyone is smiling and
whispering around the corners.
So why is it that sometimes
in this season of joy I feel so
"blue"? So deep down lonely
blue. So hauntingly, poignantly
blue.
In a way I do remember'
when it all began the sad
feelings intertwined with joy at
Christmas.
It was 1958. My father
died just before Christmas; and
when we took the poinsettia
home from the hospital, it
froze in the sub-zero weather.
The same thing happened to
my heart. That year for the first
time, I cried when we sang
"Silent Night."
That was a long time ago.
Btit I cried again, almost 30
years later, in 1985. That year
my mother died just before
Christmas.
Other happier Christmases
come to mind. I remember
Christmas with Grandma. The
tall and friendly one. Of
course, I was small then, but
she stood tall above me with
Christmas candy in her apron
pockets. Candy for me.
Especially for me.
Christmas 1954 was in a
hilly town in western
Pennsylvania. We celebrated
our one-month wedding
anniversary by hanging a
gaudy, red cellophane wreath
with an electric candle in the
middle. Oh what a wreath that
was!
Several years later the tree
had a little rocking chair under
it, and a baby doll sitting in the
chair.
You don't forget things like
those. And even as you can't
forget, you know they will
never come again.
As I once heard Katherine
Hepburn say on a television
special, "We have such losses
in life." And then blinking
back the tears, she went on to
talk about the joys of her day-
to-day living in New York and
Connecticut.
You can't deny it. This side
of 60 we've all had losses.
Such losses that sometimes it
seems a wonder there's any joy
left at all. But that's not the
way it works. Joy can and does
recreate itself in our lives. If
we give it a chance.
It's hard to be alone at the
holidays. It's hard to be sick
when others are celebrating.
And you can't help thinking of
family and friends who are no
longer here,
This poignant mixing of
joy and sadness at the holiday
season is so common as to
have been given a name by the
mental health professionals.
The "holiday blues" they call
it.
For a few people the
"holiday blues" get out of hand
and demand help. For most of
us, it's just a matter of getting
outside ourselves and
consciously creating joy.
If this is a hard Christmas


for you, look around you for
other people who may have
even more recent and deeper
losses than yours. Look for
others who might spend the
day alone.
Think happy thoughts
about the days that are gone.
Look at the pictures. Give
thanks for the memories.
And always remember that
one day this Christmas will
also be a memory. There are so
I I


few Christmases in our lives,
we can't afford to waste even
one on the "holiday blues."
