Steinhatchee Water

Association Board Seeking

New Members
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Steinhatchee Water Association, Inc. is currently looking to fill two board member positions.
Currently there are fiye active members on the seven-member board. Board members are responsible
for overseeing all aspects of the corporation and will be facing many challenges that come with
growth.
Both Dixie and Taylor County coastlines have seen an outpouring of interest from developers
and are facing water and sewer issues associated with rapid growth. Suwannee's new water facility
will begin construction this spring and Horseshoe Beach is currently looking at finalizing grant
monies for their water plant. While Steinhatchee's water plant has only been online for just over a
year, they are rapidly outgrowing their new facility as developers flock into the Steinhatchee/Jena
area.
Steinhatchee Water Association, Inc. is a not for profit corporation established in 1964 to deliver
water to Steinhatchee and neighboring Jena. The original plant was capable of serving what was
then a small rural coastal community. The existing plant was built in order to replace the outdated
and failing plant and to better serve the growing population. Unfortunately the current rate of growth
was completely unanticipated at the time plans were made for the plant.
In addition to water issues, currcntll there is no municipal sewage facility. In order to support
the current rate of growth without having a negative impact on our natural resources it may be
necessary to take on a sewer project.
Rising to the challenge, the board has begun the task of securing funding for an additional plant
that will provide water for current and future growth. It is hoped that two community-minded
people will also be up to the challenge and join the board in making decisions that will enhance the
current water system.
The only requirement for the board member position is that you must be a current Association

The driver of the white car shown above was able to walk away with only a cut to his elbow. The driver of
the semi and truck also received minor injuries in the accident that involved a total of four vehicles.
See "DRIVER WALKS" continued page 5


The Steinhatchee Water Plant has been online for just over a year and already nearing peak capacity during
high demand times, such as holidays and weekends. With the rapid growth being experienced by the small
coastal community, the plant is looking to add onto the plant in order to meet the demand. (Photo by Rex

-a Jerry Prater A



NBC tries for "turkey of the year"
It's a little early to tell, but NBC television may have come up
with 2006's "turkey of the year" in the form of a new series entitled,
"The Book Of Daniel."
If you're thinking this has anything to do with Daniel, the Old
Testament prophet, forget it. The lead character's name is Daniel
Webster--and if you might suspect this has something to do with the
19th century American statesman, you would again be mistaken.
This Daniel is a pill-popping Episcopal priest with the most
absurdly dysfunctional family and circle of acquaintances since
England's King Henry VIII. His youngest daughter, an aspiring
artist, is caught selling marijuana to pay for instruction and
materials. She gets off the hook, then solicits the help of a younger
boy who is supposed to be a computer whiz, who offers to help her
if she'll show him her...well, you get the idea. Anyway, he winds up
getting invited over to the Webster home for dinner, and it would
take volumes to describe the aggregation of misfits at that table.
Mrs. Webster guzzles martinis faster than a New York City ad-
vertising executive on a "power lunch," her sister is a lesbian whose
husband ran off with three million dollars of church funds
earmarked for the construction of a school, after which brother-in-
law gets knocked off and the money can't be found. Desperate,
Daniel seeks help from a friend.
By this time, it has been established that Daniel is quite regularly
visited by Jesus Christ, or at least he fancies he is, because no one
else ever sees Jesus on these occasions. In any event, Jesus comes
across as something of a "cool dude," more reminiscent of a 1960s
hippie than the Messiah who provided the way for the salvation of
the human species. He mainly advises Daniel to take it easy on the
pills. Nonetheless, if Daniel has this kind of access to Jesus,
wouldn't this be the ideal opportunity to seek some advice about the
missing three mil?
Apparently not. Instead, Daniel takes his troubles to a Catholic
priest who has Mafia connections, which he invokes. They recover
and agree to return the money, but only on the condition that a mob-
friendly construction company gets the contract. As we all know,
there are contracts that involve the construction of buildings, and
then there are those other kinds of contracts that the mob puts out, so
guess who the good(?) Reverend Daniel hires?
Back to Daniel's immediate family, his son is "gay," he has an
adopted son who is a sex. maniac (heterosexual, however). They
have an affluent lifestyle, a big house, a maid, and no end of other
perks to which most clergymen would be unaccustomed to say the
least. If the series makes one valid point, it would have to be that
such opulence is not a particularly good character-builder.
Space precludes a more detailed critique, but suffice it here to
say that "The Book Of Daniel" has borrowed story lines from every
soap opera and explicit crime episode to enter the American living
room for the past 25 years.
: Critics of the series have been urging viewers to call local TV
stations and the program's sponsors with their complaints. A handful
of stations have already dropped the show, but it's still accessible on
cable and satellite. Advertisers would more likely respond to a


slump in sales, but only if they figured there was a connection;
however the only advertisers on last week's episode were Burlington
Coat Factory with two spots, and Toyota and Mazda with one each,
.along with a few commercials for movies in theatres. Most of the
break time consisted of promos for other NBC shows.
This would indicate that NBC is willing to air the show whether
.or not it pays its way, at least for awhile. Maybe this is because
'somebody in the front office likes to make fun of religion. If that's
the case, maybe next season, we'll see something lampooning Islam.
.You know, the Mohammed character eating a ham sandwich and
drinking a beer while fantasizing about what feminine charms might
-be hidden beneath his neighbor's wife's burka....
And maybe next year at this time the price of gasoline will be
back below a dollar a gallon, the NOAA will have devised a way to
stop hurricanes before they start and Senator Ted Kennedy will have
Lost his bid for re-election in his home state of Massachusetts.
Just don't bet the rent money on any of the above.


Governor Bush & Lt. Governor

Jennings Announce New Funding

Recommendations For Hurricane

Preparedness, Response & Recovery
TALLAHASSEE Governor Jeb Bush and Lt. Governor Toni
Jennings today outlined a $565 million budget recommendation of
state and federal funding for emergency management at the Tiger
Bay Club of Central Florida, Inc. The Governor was joined by
Emergency Management Director Craig Fugate, Tiger Bay Club of
Central Florida, Inc. President Fred Leonhardt, business leaders,
club members and members of the community. Establishing a
"Culture of Preparedness" for hurricanes is a top priority for
Governor Bush. These new efforts will significantly enhance
Florida's ability to prepare for hurricanes, respond quickly in the
aftermath of a storm, recover from the damage and impacts to the
economy, and mitigate future threats to public safety and
infrastructure.
"Hurricanes are a fact of life in Florida and every Floridian
needs to have a plan for hurricane season," said Governor Bush.
"Our ability to respond and recover from a hurricane is critical to
our economy and quality of life. A strong response and quick
recovery sends a message to businesses and tourists that Florida
remains the best option for both investments and vacations -
keeping our growing economy strong."
Governor Bush and Lt. Governor Jennings' recommendations
are:


Hurricane Preparedness
$5.3 million to raise public awareness about the need to
plan appropriately for emergencies. The Division of Emergency
Management will be charged with implementing a public
education and information campaign to help instill a "Culture of
Preparedness" in Florida.
$42 million to provide for a 2006 sales tax holiday on
hurricane preparedness supplies. Governor Bush is recommending
that the Florida Legislature authorize an annual sales tax holiday
coinciding with National Hurricane Preparedness Week each May.
Last year, Floridians saved more than $10 million on essential
preparedness items.
$50 million to harden existing homes through retrofitting.
Priority will be given to low income homeowners living in wind
borne debris areas.
Over the next several years, more than $300 million in
federal funding will be invested to minimize damage from future
disasters. Counties and cities throughout Florida create mitigation
projects based on local priorities.
"Governor Bush's commitment to preparedness is a model for
the nation," said Florida Division of Emergency Management
Director Craig Fugate. "A successful response starts well before a
storm makes landfall with families, communities and counties
planning and preparing for a potential emergency."
Hurricane Response
$30 million to install, by the start of the 2007 Hurricane
Season, permanent generators to serve our special needs shelter
population.
$16.7 million to create safe public shelter for an
additional 100,000 people and fund a pilot program for regional
sheltering projects.
$69.8 million to construct and expand county Emergency
Operations Centers to ensure they can survive a hurricane/.
$29 million for new technology to improve our
understanding of the effects of storm surge. These new models
will serve as a scientific basis. for updated regional evacuation
plans.
$6.5 million to improve Florida's logistics system,
ensuring we provide essential commodities to disaster victims as
quickly and efficiently as possible.
$2 million to expand the University of Miami Medical
Training and Simulation Laboratory to enhance training for first
responders to emergency disasters and terrorist attacks.
"Thousands of us have seen the devastating impact of
hurricanes first hand. We remain committed to supporting
Floridians as they recover from these storms," said Lt. Governor
Jennings. "Our budget recommendations will provide assistance to
Floridians as they rebuild their communities and prepare for the
storm seasons ahead."
Hurricane Recovery
Programs will address affordable housing needs created by the
destructive 2004 and 2005 Hurricane Seasons. These efforts will
build on the strategies developed by Governor Bush's Hurricane
Housing Workgroup. Led by Lt. Governor Jennings, the
Workgroup was convened last year to assess affordable housing in
Florida and make recommendations regarding future mitigation
and recovery measures. In addition to $243 million for the Florida
Housing Finance Corporation for state and local affordable
housing programs, a 26 percent increase from the current fiscal
year funding, Governor Bush is also recommending:
$177 million for a Rental Recovery Loan Program that
leverages available federal resources and private capital to build
and rehabilitate affordable rental housing.
$98 million for a locally-administered Hurricane Housing
Recovery Program that will accommodate the unique housing
needs of Florida's communities affected by the storms.
$25 million for farmworker housing and housing for frail
elders, persons with disabilities and homeless families.
$2 million to repair and rehabilitate homes in
communities severely impacted by the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes.
$12 million to expand Florida reBuilds and train an
additional 6,000 individuals, bringing the total to 10,000
individuals. In December, Lt. Governor Jennings launched the
Florida reBuilds program, a workforce initiative to recruit and train
construction workers to meet growing demands related to
hurricane recovery and the State's housing boom.
Four hurricanes made landfall in Florida in 2004 Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. The 2005 Hurricane Season
brought more destruction with the landfalls of four more
hurricanes Dennis, Katrina, Rita and Wilma. Recovery efforts
from these eight hurricanes are ongoing in communities throughout
Florida. The National'
HFurricane Center has predicted B G AST
a continued period of BMA
heightened tropical activity, M
reinforcing the need for General
Floridians to properly prepare; .
for each hurricane season.

Editor
Florida 4 Marriage
Constitutional Amendment
Petition
Has the position of the
male in our society diminished
to the extent that there must
now be a constitutional
amendment to define his role
in marriage?
The issues at stake are not
that of marriage relationships,
but that of social prejudices. e
Now that we have a society
advanced beyond the cave,
there are those that merely
want laws to protect their
moral rights.
The right of freedom,'
peace and security, in love
these have no boundaries. Isn't
it about time?

"MLK"
Continued fiom page 1

His peaceful approach would lead him to receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and Time
magazine's 1963 Man of the Year, just to name a few of the honors bestowed on him during his
short life. On April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis,
Tennessee, he was assassinated.
Here, in Dixie County, a small group gathered for what they hope to be the first annual "The
Dream Continues" March. Coordinators, Teva Teagues, Angela, Florence & Felita Carter, were
thrilled at the outcome, with some 60 participants joining in the march.
As the group walked, a recording of Kings most famous speech, "I Have A Dream," played in
the background. The March ended at the Carter home where several spoke, including City
Councilman Marcellus Dawson, on the impact that Dr. King had on their lives.
Between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five
hundred times. While his footsteps no longer travel the roadway, his idea of equality and love for all
mankind lives on.
"BOYD"
Continued from pagel


Capo stated the channel is so clogged fishermen
have to sometimes wait for hours before there is
enough water to leave and/or return to shore. He
added that the problem has steadily increased
over the past three years. "Dredging used to last
longer when we had shrimp boat fleets in the
area," Capo said. The large boats would help
keep the channel dug out; however they have all
but left the area, due to restrictions put on the
shrimpersrs. In addition to the channel, Capo
noted the turn-basin is also plugged, making
turning around impossible.
Currently the two perimeter canals, Rim and
the Main Canal, are being dredged. The project
is being funded through a grant approved by
FEMA due to damages occurring from
.Hurricane Francis last summer. While residents
,and local officials are thankful for the grant,
they are disappointed the grant did not include
funding for- the dredging in the main channel
and inter-canals. Capo predicts the work being
done today on the perimeter canals will be in
vane and will be filled within a year.
Besides boaters not being able to navigate
the channel, the issue of emergency response
was addressed. At certain times of the day,
rbscue boats are unable to leave out of
Horseshoe, delaying any attempt at helping
.stranded, injured and lost boaters. This issue
wvas also addressed by county emergency
officials last summer.
Martha Burnette, Horseshoe Councilwoman,
told the Congressman the interior canals are so
plugged that homeowners only have a two-hour
'window in which they can leave and/or return.
Boyd noted that while FEMA's jurisdiction
is in the area of the perimeter canals, it is the
Army Corps of Engineers that would decide and
fund any work done in the channel. He also
noted the interior canals in Horseshoe are
locally owned and therefore any work would fall
under their jurisdiction, or the county in
Horseshoe's case.
Capo told the Congressman it would be cost
effective if they were to fund any channel or
interior canal project while the dredging
company is already set up in Horseshoe.
Estimates for a "new" project to dredge the
channel and turn basin would be"well over
$100,000.00; while if they could do it now, the
cost would only be around $50,000.00. Boyd
stated that he would get in contact with the
contractor, Subaqueous Service, Inc. and the
Corps to see what could, if anything, be done.
The issue of the interior canals will have to
be addressed to the county. It was noted that
County Coordinator Arthur Bellot and
,Emergency Management Director Chad Reed
have been working with a variety of state
agencies trying to get funding for all the canals
in Horseshoe. The problem they have ran into is
flitt they are not able to "prove" that the large
- build up of silt has occurred within the last few
years from storm surge caused by hurricanes
and other storms.


Horseshoe Beach Councilman Teddy Kight
suggested that the jetties be brought in closer to
the mainland. It is his feelings that having the
rock barrier extended more towards the
shoreline would help during storm surge, not
only in the channel but canals.
Kight also asked Congressman Boyd for his
support with the town's application for funding
for a sewage system. Currently Horseshoe
doesn't have a waste treatment plant and they
are concerned that the community's rapid
growth will cause contaminate problems in the
future.
Boyd stated that he understands the draw to
the area's pristine waters and woods. "We must
keep our rural coastal communities viable but at
the same time build smart," Boyd said.
Along the same lines, Congressman Boyd
asked how the aquaculture farming was doing in
our area. It was reported that currently the area
located between Suwannee & Horseshoe Beach
off of Shired Island is where the majority of the
clam and oyster leases are. On average there is
a 30-40% survival rate; with farmers breaking
even at 30%. That, combined with depressed
prices, the future of aquaculture looks bleak.
This was disturbing news for the Congressman
who helped spearhead the idea of shellfish
farming, right here in Dixie County.
The Congressman thanked the people of
Horseshoe for allowing him to serve them over
the years and promised to continue to work for
them. After the meeting, Boyd, Kight and
Spradley took a tour of the channel and main
canal, the main topic of discussion.
From Horseshoe, the Congressman traveled
to the Dixie County Public Library where he
joined the members of the Dixie County
Chamber of Commerce for their regular
monthly meeting. To his delight they were
serving up chicken and dumplings and some
very delicious, but sinful, desserts.
The Congressman told the group that he
knew that rural Florida will be facing many
challenges in the next 20 years as "baby
boomers" retire; looking at North Florida as the
ideal place to settle. "Folks are attracted to the
rural setting you have here in Dixie," he stated.
"We need to be prepared, and I want you to
know I will be here to help in anyway I can."
Carol West thanked the Congressman for his
support over the past nine years on the McGriff
Pass dredging project. Cross City Correctional
Institute Warden David Farcas extended his
thanks to the Congressman as well and asked
that he keep an ear out for any potential growth
for the CRCCI facility. Farcas added that he has
enjoyed the great report that the institute has
with the local government as well.
Boyd stated, as always, he enjoyed his visit
to our little corner of the state. Coming from a
farming family himself, he has always had the
interest of the rural communities at heart and
able to relate to the special issues they face. If
you need to contact the Congressman, you can
do so by calling his office at (850) 561-3979.

"DRIVER
WALKS"
Continued from page 1

This past Tuesday, January
17, 2006, emergency crews
were called to an accident at
the intersection of US 19 and
SR 349 where a car had been
pinned-by logs from a turned
over log truck. While Dixie
EMS treated victims at the
scene Dixie Volunteer Fire
Fighters made sure the diesel
from the semi didn't ignite.
Dixie Sheriffs Officers, Cross
City Police and DOT officers
kept onlookers at bay and re-
directed traffic. It was a
frightful scene, but
miraculously, no one was
seriously injured.
According to a report filed
by Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper W.H. Sheheane,
Charlie Howard, 52, of
Trenton, FL was driving a
1994 Freightliner Semi Truck
in the northbound lane of US
19 when he failed to stop for a
red light at the intersection,
causing him to take evasive
action as his truck turned onto
SR 349. Jack J. Lathan, 78, of
Rockledge, FL; Kenneth R.
Yawn, 22 of Old Town, FL
and Jimmie R. Connell, 80 of
Old Town, Fl, were all stopped
in the left turn lane on SR 349,
waiting for the light to change
when the semi made the turn.
As the semi made the turn,
his load of logs collided with
the left rear of Lathan's pickup
truck and spilled onto the roof
of Yawn's Dodge car. The cab
of the semi hit the left front
side of Connell's Ford pickup
before landing on its side.
Yawn was helped out of his
crushed car by another driver
who barely missed being hit,
"Wild Bill".
Traffic was re-directed for
more than five '; :_.,-a.as'the
debris from thie log truck and
car was removed. All drivers
were treated at the scene by
Dixie EMS, with Yawn being
the only one with minor
injuries to his elbow.
Howard was charged with
Violation of Traffic Control
Device (Red Light).

The Word Made

Flesh
God's Sabbath
Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say there is a beautiful
clue given us in Hebrews 6:5 about
what will take place in this age.
"For it is impossible for those who
were once enlightened, and have
tasted of the heavenly gift, and
were made partakers of the Holy
Ghost, And have tasted the good
word of God, and the powers of the
age to come,..." (llehlews 6:'1-5)
Jesus spent much time healing
people on the Sabbath. The Scribes
and Pharisees thought he had plenty
of time on the other six says to do
His work. What is Jesus saying to
us in the way that He seemed to
always be breaking their rules?
Why did He work on the Sabbath'?
I, the son of man, say remember
that God rested on the Sabbath,
while the man he created ruled and
did the necessary work to care for
the creation God had put under his
dominion. "The Sabbath is made
for man." And remember that this
Sabbath is a 1,000-year day, and
that we are His many-membered
man. God is telling us through the
life and works of Jesus that this
1,000-year will be very busy, and
very fruitful. Jesus went to
Jerusalem and there by the sheep
market was a pool called Bethesda,
the place of five porches. Chapter 5
of the Gospel of Jon, ,.ves us a
beautiful story of the healing of a
cripple. It took' place on the
Sabbath day, the 7" day of the
week. So there will be cripples
healed in the "7b' day" by those
sons who have been caught up to
God's throne. Those who have
been unable to walk out the truths
of the Gospel during the age of
grace will come into contact with
real sonship and will "take up their
beds and walk." This is part of the
program for this age.' I, the son of
man, say this man could see fine.
He could even see Jesus when He
came. But, he couldn't walk. This
world is full of people who can sec
the truths of the gospel; some even
have some deep revelations. But
they can't walk in that which they
see. They seec the truth of victory
.over sin, victory over sickness and
death. But, they still all get sick
and dic. But, in the "7th day" of this
age, this will be corrected. People
will be made to walk, to be strong.
After 38 years as a cripple, the man
was strong enough to carry his bed.
Then' he ran into religious
difficulty. The Jews said to him, "It
is the Sabbath day, it is not lawful
for thee to carry thy bed." I, the
son of man, say in other words;
according to their doctrine, nothing
like this is going to happen in the
1,000-year millennium. Continued
next week.
Let Us
Pray
For
Peace
On
Earth


Behold The Tabernacle Of God
The day of' the Lord is not a twenty-four hour day, and it is not
Saturday or Sunday or any calendar day of the week. The day of the Lord
will be a people, God's army.
Joel 2:1-11 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my
holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the
Lord cometh, for it is night at hand; a day of darkness and o" gloominess,
a day of' clouds and of' thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the
mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like,
neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A
fire devoureth belbre them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is
as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness;
yea, and nothing shall exape them. The appearance of them is as the
appearance of horses; and as horseman, so shall they run. Like the noise of
chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame
of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather
blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like
men of war: and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall
not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon
the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the
windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall
tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw
their shining: and the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his
camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of
the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
Joel's prophecy is the sound of a trumpet all the way through. It may
take a few weeks to help you understand that the day of the Lord is a
people, so please follow closely.
Ephesians 1:9, 10 Having made known unto us the mystery (secret) of
His will (plan and purpose), according to his good pleasure (merciful
intentions) which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of
the fullness of times (climax of the ages) he might gather together (unify
all things) in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which
are on earth; even in him:
Ephesians 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward (into) us in all
wisdom and prudence;
All of the riches of God's grace abound not just towards us, but into
us, until we arc filled with all wisdom of His purpose.
I Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even
the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory;
continued.

Abundant Life & Living
By Lucille Stockton
Save the Children; and we save
the world.
Senator Hillary Clinton stated;
and I quote (It takes a village to
raise a child) I appeal to parents,
relatives, friends and neighbors: "
Let's not look for the justice
system, institutions, schools and
family services to protect, teach
and train our children; loyalty,
respect, honesty, safety and
morality. We appreciate all their help and we need it.
We are losing our children at an alarming rate, it's
frightening. Some of us are not biological parents, that doesn't
excuse us from the neighborhood watch: We are our brothers
keeper. Together we will be a strong force. We need each other.
Charity begins at home. Parents our children are depending on
us for their protection, trust and security. God created us to be
his helpers, we cannot live life to its fullest, selfish and
complacent. We are required in our abundant living to love
unconditionally, live fully, forgive completely and help where
needed. An unloved child becomes shy and insecure. A child
that is abused is hostile and has low self-esteem. A child that
sees his/her's parents fight, lose faith in humanity. We are their
roll models.

"Love Life & Live It"

Thank You
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all
the beautiful flowers, food, cards, phone calls, visits and especially
your prayers during the loss of our loved one Dorothy Hammond.
Special thanks to the Cross City Rehab staff and nurses. Words
can't express the excellent care and love she received during her
stay there. Thanks again for everything, you are the best.
Also a special thank you to Tri-County Hospice-for being there
for us and making her last days comfortable. Thanks to Rick
Gooding for the beautiful service and Rev. Bobby Lindsey and
Rev. Curtis Hall.
The family of Dorothy S. Hammond

Calvary Temple News
What can we expect in the coming days? Pastor Hurst's latest
book deals exactly with this subject. God will not deal with "the
world" and "the church" in the same way. Two vastly different
moves are shaping up. Things will occur that will appear
"suddenly." Book title: "What to Expect in the Coming Days?"
Visit our website at www.jiimnhurst.org.
Special Women's Ministry Meeting this coming Saturday,,'
January 21s" beginning at 7:00 pm with Pastor Debra Cormellas.

sharing their faith. This will be a thirteen-week class to be held on
Sunday evenings.
Join us daily Monday-Friday on 91.5 FM for our radio
program. 9:25 am & 5:30 pm. Every message over the next month
will be a message of exhortation and encouragement. Do you need
to be encouraged? Then tune in daily for a daily gos-pill that will
pick you up.
Kid's Church (ages 3-12) is doing great. 2006 will place much
more emphasis on this area. Willie George curriculum is used in
this ministry. The next thirteen lessons emphasize the need of the
Holy Spirit in our lives.
Calvary is growing steadily with new faces it seems each week.
Our desire is to not only grow numerically but more importantly
spiritually. Emphasis in 2006 will be recognizing the gifts among
us, equipping for ministry in the area of interest and employing
into active ministry. We invite YOU to come and grow with us!

all we knew about her was that she was "extremely" anointed, of
the Lord. It was only "after" we had scheduled this service that,we
learned of her great accomplishments. Please make plans to attend.
Fellowship will follow the service!

HOMECOMING








Lydia Baptist Church had a great time
in a revival meeting with Brother Carroll
Roberson last week. We saw people saved,
filled with the Holy Spirit, and many
changed lives. Revival fires are burning,
and our desire is that they will become
hotter and brighter.

You can be part of this movement of God
this Sunday, January 22 by attending the
74th HOMECOMING of our church. All former
members, friends, relatives and anyone
interested in worshipping God in spirit
and in truth is welcome.

There will be dinner on the grounds, and
great singing afterwards.
The community is invited to share this time
of fellowship with a
warm God fearing church.

This side of 60... By Marie Snider
DON'T LET YOUR HANDICAPS STOP YOU

Our family began the year 2006 with a fun intergenerational
party. We had so much fun that the time flew by. All of a sudden
it was midnight, and 13-year-old Adam suggested that we watch
the ball drop in Times Square.
Unfortunately, I had tidied my living room so well that we
couldn't find the remote control.
Adam had a wonderful idea and I was very sad later that we
didn't watch, because Dick Clark had come back from his stroke
to face the world again. Clark, who had a devastating stroke a
year ago, had counted down the seconds until the ball .dropped.
And I missed it.
According to news reports, Clark began by saying "Last year I
had a stroke... I had to teach myself how to walk and talk again.
It's been a long, hard fight. My speech is not perfect but I'm
getting there."
My friends at the pool said they could understand everything
he said. No one knew the hours of speech therapy and exercise it
took for him to come back. And also, the many hours of hard
work that still lay ahead of him.
No matter, Clark was jubilant for one night at the beginning
of 2006!
He said, "I wouldn't have missed this for the world." And after
the show, he and five or six 'of his friends went out for
hamburgers to celebrate.
Diane Mulligan-Fairfield of the National Stroke Association
called Clark a "hero" for appearing on television after his stroke.
And stroke survivors everywhere found it very encouraging.
Among those survivors was Dr. Warren Braun, who said "Dick
Clark is an inspiration to all stroke victims."
Braun had a massive stroke nine years ago. He says, "As part
of my therapy to learn to speak I had to use a computer program.
So I had to learn how to use the computer for the first time. After
learning that, I wrote my first book on the computer within
about six months from my stroke. I can't use my right hand so
when I write my books I type using one finger on my left hand."
With that one finger, he has since written 24 books and his
25th book will be published soon.
Braun's first book after his stroke was simply titled "Stroke."
Since, he has written on every imaginable topic, from golf (which
he can no longer play) to a book titled, "On the Way to Successful
Employee Stock Ownership."
As a successful entrepreneur and inventor over the past few
decades, Braun developed a company that provided technological
support and engineering expertise for the emerging cable
television industry. Later he turned ownership of his company
over to the workers by establishing an early Employees Stock
Ownership.
."I believe in people," he says. "I've always believed in people.
People are more important than money."
Braun still writes with optimism and humor, in spite of having
had a stroke and being the caretaker of his wife, who has
Alzheimer's.
As we get older, many of us can expect some handicaps -
knee or hip replacements, restrictions because of heart problems,
Parkinson's, loss of hearing, broken bones.
But next time you feel sorry for yourself, remember what
Warren Braun did with one finger, and don't let your handicaps
stop you.

What is
in a shiny sink? by
"The FlyLady"
.a. .t aWhen you first come to FlyLady.net you are
shocked to hear what your initial habit is! "Go
shine my sink??? How is that going to help me
get my whole house in order?"
Right now you are probably feeling a bit overwhelmed and I promise
this is going to help you get out of the CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over
Syndrome) that you have been living in for such a long time. It all starts
with that shining sink.
When I set out to get my act together in 1999, I1 didn't know where to
start either. This is why I just picked my sink. I was tired of beating
myself up over the way I kept our home looking. At this point I knew
what I had been doing would not work for very long. It was because I
would go gung ho for a week or two then I would crash and burn. There
is no rhythm to my method. I was forcing myself to adhere to a new set
of rules and I felt so confined by the sheer number of them. I knew the
system I had always used was not going to work again. This is when I
started to rethink how I treated myself and guilt trips I would force on
me. These were not working and I was so beaten down.
Right then and there I decided I would be nice to me by only
requiring that I do one small thing each day. I needed to establish a habit.
I had plenty of habits but they were not effective ones for taking care of
me or our home. I picked keeping my sink clean and shiny for a whole
month. It was just that simple! -
What is in that shiny sink anyway? When you walls into you kitchen
in morning and you are confronted with yesterday's dirty dishes; you just
want to go crawl back into bed and pull the covers over your head. Along
with these dishes are hurtful feelings because no one is helping you. Not
only do you have to get these out of way to start another meal but you are
beating yourself up because you let them go. That nasty water is just a
reflection of how you feel when you face a sink full of yesterday's dirty
dishes.
Now on the other hand, when you are greeted with a shiny sink, all
these bad feelings are gone and for the first time you can see a reflection
of you. This is why I named my book Sink Reflections. That shiny sink
brings a smile to your face. You deserve to smile. The guilt has vanished
because you are standing in a kitchen with no roadblocks to begin your
day. That is a great feeling and that is what a brand new day is all about!
The goal is to keep that sink clean and shiny for a month. If we miss
a day; we just jump back in and don't beat ourselves up over it. We know
that it will only take a minute to get it back to its shiny self. When you
are shining your sink you are really just putting a little shine to your day
and a smile on your face.
That shiny sink is contagious to the rest of the kitchen; just like your
happiness and sadness is infectious to your family. The dishwasher has to
be emptied because you need a place to put the dirty dishes. That dirty
dish disposal unit helps to clear off your counter tops; when a sink is that
shiny the counters just have to be cleaned too. Then comes the stove.
Now the point of your habit was just to keep the sink clean and shiny but
that shine is working its way around the heart of your home! The best
part is that shiny sink is giving you confidence that you can do something
and stick with it. Your shiny sink is a reflection of you! Enjoy the process
and go shine your sink!

Remember those real hot 90 degree plus days of summer and you
opted for staying inside with the AC and leave the yard work for later?
January is a great time for planning your garden and landscaping.
Pick up a book, magazine, turn on HGTV, click on the internet or go
to your local nursery to get some good ideas for your design and plant
varieties.
January is a good month to check/recheck your frost sensitive plants
for adequate mulch and pine straw root protective cover. Remember not
to pile up the mulch right up against the main trunk as it may cause
disease or cause trunk decomposition.
This is the best time to prune your fruit trees to maintain high yields.
Don't be tempted to trim those azaleas because they have gotten long
and lanky limbs; azaleas bud on the old growth and should only be
trimmed AFTER blooming in April or May.
For those of you who need specific answers to your landscape,
hardscape or planting dilemmas, contact your local state registered
horticulturist. For the rest of our readers, enjoy January. "Give a plant,
sow a friendship".

Buddy Martin's
Being No. 2: Burden or honor?
GAINESVILLE --- It's remarkably prestigious to be
ranked No. 2 in the country behind Duke, but when you know in
your heart you and your basketball team don't really
deserve to be there, the pressure can be intense._ The
Florida Gators, picked in a writers' poll to finish fifth
in the EC East, beat Auburn Saturday night, 69-57, to
go 16-0 and maintain their high standing.
Privately, Billy Donovan tells friends '
that his Gators haven't really beaten a quality '...
opponents and isn't worth of a Top 10 ranking and
probably deserve to be ranked somewhere in the
middle of the second 10. However, these Gators have
balance in scoring, strong passing skills, tenacious
defense and good rebounding. The three-point
shooting of Taurean Green, Corey Brewer and Lee
Humphrey, plus the depth in the paint with Joakim Noah, Adrian
Moss, Al Horford and Chris Richards, give Donovan plenty of
talent. And they all play hard. Most of all, Donovan reveres the
unselfishness of this team. "We aren't the most talented team or
the most experienced, but our guys fight and claw, which is why
we are where we are," he said. How far can they go? Well, right
now they appear headed to at least the first round of the NCAA.
With 13 games remaining after Auburn, it would take a total
collapse for the Gators not to be invited to the Big Dance.
'Small town boy' comes home
PUNTA GORDA -- Burton Lawless has fond
memories of growing up in Punta Gorda, but last week wasn't a
happy occasion for his return to Charlotte County.
The self-professed "small town boy" came back to
bury his father Thursday. James Burton Lawless, former coach,
teacher and administrator, died Dec. 7 in Waco, Texas at 86.
"I was lucky to have him for 50 years," said Burton.
"He was a great father. He taught us to have faith in the Lord and I
know he's in heaven right now."
Growing up and watching his dad go from being a
coach and teacher, then administrator and superintendent, Burton
eventually became a world class football player and his talent took
him all the way to the big time and the bright lights.
Lawless became a star player for Charlotte High and
signed a scholarship with the Florida Gators, where he was an All-.
American and a member of the Team of the Century in 1999.
After being drafted in the second round, Lawless immediately
started at center for the Dallas Cowboys and played five years. He
eventually also played for the Detroit Lions in 1980 and Miami
Dolphins in 1981. He was about to report to the Chicago Bears
when his career was ended by a freak tractor accident in which he
broke his back.
Though he lives in Waco, Texas, Burton's roots are
still very much in Charlotte.
As a young boy, having just relocated from South
Alabama, he found his first football hero in nearby Arcadia,
playing for DeSoto High.
Years later, Lawless returned to Gainesville and got

to spend time with Jim Yarbrough from DeSoto County, the big
tight end who played for Ray Graves at Florida in the late 1960s.
"I really looked up to Jim," Lawless recalled.
As members of Florida's Team of the Century picked in
1999, Lawless and Yarborough rode on a float together in
Gainesville.
"We had a great time, just being
two small town boys," said Lawless, himself an
All-American offensive lineman. "Jim
Yarbrough what a great guy!"
Next to his late father, the man he
admires the most is Tom Landry, for whom he
played in Dallas.
"I live in Texas," said Lawless,
"and people say to me all the time, 'You played
for the Cowboys when they were really the
Cowboys Tom Landry was coach.'Coach
Landry was a great man and a great Christian."
Even though it has been 25 years since he played in the
NFL, Burton Lawless is still one of the biggest sports stars in
Southwest Florida. He and his late father have left quite a legacy
behind for others to emulate.
Quick Jump Starts
1. ABC and ESPN dropping out of TV golf is a sign that the
golden goose is ailing too much golf, too much money and not
enough players supporting all 50 of the events.
2. Talk about your odd situations: Former Gator player Mike
Mularkey resigns unexpectedly as Buffalo's head coach, just a
few days after 80-year-old Mary Levy was hired as president, but
owner Ralph Wilson says Levy would not be a candidate as the
Bills' next head coach.
3. Good for Mack Brown, proving nice guys can finish first,
claiming that he's happier about winning the national title for the
people of Texas than he was for himself.
4. I don't know how they measure this stuff, but the Atlanta
Journal-Constitution says Florida has moved ahead with the No. I
recruiting class in college football.
5. Welcome to one of my former Denver media home boys,
Blake Olson of KUSA-TV and KWGN-TV, now the new
executive director of the American Cancer Society unit for
Charlotte County, Clewiston and LaBelle.

Buddy: I can't remember a year when only one
Florida team -- college or pro -- won a post-season football game
can you? Go Gators!
David Baird. Punta Gorda
DAVID: Astute observation, David. Neither can I -
at least not since we've had three NFL clubs and the Big Three of
Florida college teams.

Florida NRCS Announces Signup

.State Conservationist Niles Glasgow with USDA-Natural

All applications for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program

quality, animal/plant health and confined livestock operations.
Priorities for WHIP include habitat restoration on scrubby
flatwoods, pine rocklands, topical hammocks, and native
grasslands for bobwhite quail. Individual county priorities may
vary slightly due to locally established objectives.

Trenton Area
Pets Go Online
Catahoula United Rescue
Society, Trenton, recently
started listing homeless pets on
Petfinder.com, the oldest and
largest database of -adoptable
animals on the Internet. The
site currently has over 200,000
homeless pets listed, and it is
updated continuously.
Betsy Saul, president and
co-founder of Petfinder, said
"Residents of the area will now
be able to look at pets from the
comfort of home. Those same
pets, though, will also be
presented to a much greater
pool of potential adopters
outside their own community."
Petfinder.com was created
in early 1996 as a grassroots
project by Jared and Betsy
Saul to end the euthanasia of
adoptable pets. Last year the
site helped 1.5 million pets
find new families, making it
the most life-saving initiative
in animal welfare.
Purina is the Web site's
premier sponsor. Other
exclusive sponsors are
BISSELL Homecare, Inc. a
manufacturer of home cleaning
and floor care products,
PETCO, a national pet supply
retailer that sponsors in-store
adoptions and provides coupon
books for new adopters, and
Merial, maker of the number
one veterinary-recommended
flea and tick preventative
FRONTLINE, and
heartworm preventative
HEARTGARD.

Hokey but Valuable
Come on, admit it. You watch them too. You know what I'm
talking about. Those old 60s television shows on Nickelodeon. I
do too. They were simple and hokey and full of traditional
American values. That, of course, is exactly why we love them,
even now, nearly 40 years later. My favorite? Well, it's hard to
pick, but if I were forced, I guess it would be "Leave it to Beaver."
That simple little show starring Hugh Beaumont, Barbara
Billingsley, Tony Dow and Jerry Mathers as The Beaver.
It first aired October 4, 1957 and it was the first family sitcom
that dealt with life from a kid's point of view. To many fans, it
was the ultimate portrayal of life in suburban America in the 50s.
It was a time of change and movement in this country. As more
families joined the baby boom, sitcoms featuring young families
came into their own. Danny Thomas, "Father Knows Best," "The
Donna Reed Show," "The Real McCoys," they were all part of the
growing and changing tastes of post-World War II America.
And here it is 40 years after the last "Leave it to Beaver"
episode aired, and it's still on Nick at Night every night! Amazing
isn't it, that a show's popularity would last that long? And here's a
little tidbit that I'll bet you didn't know. When the show was new,
from 1957 to 1963, it never once cracked into the top 25 in the
ratings. That's right, it was only considered by the networks to be
a mediocre show. But its longevity has been unbelievable.
And there may be a few things about the cast that surprise you
too. Jerry Mathers began his career, not as Beaver, but as a pin-up
boy. Yeah! He was a featured model on a department store's
Christmas calendar. Tony Dow never wanted to be an actor at all.
He only went to the audition to give a friend, who was about to
chicken out, some encouragement. And he wound up with the
part. He didn't want it, and had to be sold on the idea. Barbara
Billingsley, you know, the perfect mom? Well, before Beaver, she
was known in Hollywood as the B-picture queen. She had
appeared in more than 100 detective stories and TV dramas. She
Swas actually picked to be June Cleaver because the producers felt
sorry for her. In real life her husband had just died and she was
struggling.
But probably the one thing that we all remember about the
show is the solid, honest, caring advice that Ward gave the boys.
The show always had a moral and a message usually delivered by
Hugh Beaumont. And did you know that was no accident. Not
because it was popular or the public demanded it, but because
Hugh demanded it. That somewhat pious act, well that was no act.
You see, It's a Little Known Fact that Hugh Beaumont had a great
deal to do with the morality of "Leave it to Beaver," because in
real life Hugh was a Methodist minister. And he knew how much
Influence a show like that could have on America's youth. It still
r does, I think. At least I hope so!

SHINE Site Reopens
in Dixie County
SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders), a volunteer
program 'in the FL Dept of Elder Affairs, will begin holding
individual counseling sessions on Medicare Part D: Prescription
Drug Programs on:
Wed, January 25th 2:00-4:00pm Dixie County Public
Library
There will be a Medicare Part D presentation at the Rock Sink
Baptist Church in Old Town on Saturday, January 21st from 10:00-
11:00am. The address is 471 NE 816 Ave. Or call (352)542-9488
for directions.
There is still much confusion in determining which plan is best
for you. While SHINE cannot make that choice for you, we will
assist you in getting the information you need to make an informed
choice. If you cannot run the computer programs yourself nor have
any family or friends to help you, we will offer to run the programs
in www.medicare.gov for you. The Compare Drug Plans will list
the plans that best suit your drug needs in order of cost to you.
From there, you can call the plan company and ask to be sent the
details on the plan (see pages 97B-97F in the back of the Medicare
and You 2006 book). It is important that you find out what your
deductible, premium, drugs covered, drug costs, mail order options,
and whether or not the 'donut hole' is covered in each plan. Also,
check to see if your favorite pharmacy carries that program. The
least expensive plan may not necessarily be the best plan in the
long run. We will be happy to go over the plan details with you
and answer any questions you may have.
Pre-qualifying for Extra Help in paying your deductible,
premiums, and drugs is still available through SSA. Pick up your
forms from a SHINE counseling site. To qualify for one of the
three groups for Extra Help you must have an income of less than
$14,355 for a single person with assets of less than $11,500 or an
income of less than $19,245 for a couple with assets of less than
$23,000. Assets do not include your residence or your vehicles.
Your assets must be able to be turned into cash in 20 days or less.
Please do not give out any personal information to anyone that
calls or comes to the door trying to sell you a drug plan. Do not
give anyone your Social Security card number, your Medicare card
number, your bank account number, or your credit card number
over the phone, or to anyone who knocks on your door. It is illegal
for anyone to sell these plans door-to-door.
For questions or directions to a site, please call the Elder Help
Line at 1-800-262-2243. Don't forget you have until May 15th,
2006 to enroll without penalty.

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, January 12th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was a very busy day. We were honored
to have Mary Sue Rife from American Life Health services of
Marion County to try to explain the new insurance and drug
program that is hard to understand. Maybe in time it will be
worked out.
We now have our quilters from IL back with us for a while.
Sarah Small was here last week and now Dorothy Riggs and
Eluena Davidson have come to help us quilt. It's so great to have
them back and they usually get at least one quilt done and last year
they did two. -We appreciate all our quilters that do so much
beautiful work and we are proud of all of them. We couldn't put
out the many quilts without them.
Tuesday was a great day. We had two eighty-yard rolls of
batting shipped from NC. Greg Stavley and five boys were out and
we put them to cutting and tying the 3-yard bundles and what a
great time we had. We ended up with 47 three-yard rolls and 10
two-yard rolls and they had it all done by 11:00 AM. We were over
grateful for all the boys do where they come out from Lancaster.
Thanks again.
Lunch was enjoyed with chicken and dressing, chicken pot pie,
fried cabbage, sweet potatoes, greens, salads and great desserts. 17
members and 13 guests were present.

Navigating Through The Medicare Changes


(NAPS)-Recently, navi-
gating through the Medicare
changes was made a little
easier for the 42 million
Medicare beneficiaries when
Emmy-winner Mariette
Hartley hosted another
episode of the "Healthy
Solutions" series. The half-
hour television program
explored the most impor-
tant issues and topics
related to America's health
and well-being.
Sweeping changes in
Medicare will not only affect
individuals presently on
Medicare, but will affect gen-
erations to follow. A special
report titled "Understanding
Health Care Options for
Seniors" tackles one of the
most critical concerns of
Medicare beneficiaries
today-understanding the
changes to Medicare, and how
to make the best choice for
their own well-being.
These changes provide
choices, and these choices can
lead to confusion-but not if
individuals understand the
different options available.
Dr. Scott Latimer, Market
President, Senior Products
for Humana, stated that
when it comes to making
choices, "Medicare benefi-
ciaries still make their own


decisions in the end, but if
they have the sense that they
have enough information to
make the right choices, they
will be confident and we feel
that's something people will
really value."
According to the National
Institute on Aging, 75 per-
cent of Americans over the
age of 65 take at least one
prescription drug. One of the
most significant changes in
Medicare deals with pre-
scription drug coverage. It is
up to the savvy individual to

do some shopping, compare
the various plans that are
available and will become
available, and decide which
one is best for his or her own
unique needs.
These changes clearly

affect individuals who are
reaching 65 years of age. Dr.
Latimer emphasized, "It's
going to get a lot more corn-
plicated in years to come
because there are more
choices. For people that are
not yet 65, it's not too soon to
be looking at the various
choices that will be available."

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Horseshoe Beach Utilities Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you
have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 10/06/05 show that
our system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which
includes both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standards for TTHMs and
HAAS are 80 and 60 micrograms per liter (mg/L), respectively, The TTHMs and HAAS were detected at 592 and 250
respectively.
What should I do?-
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs and pregnancy problems. Therefore,
women of childbearing age may wish to seek alternative water sources. Any customers who are concerned about their
exposure to DBPs can choose alternative sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated
by an appropriate home water treatment device, until we correct the problem. Appropriate home water treatment devices

Avoid The Flu
(NAPS)-It is time to take
special precautions to avoid
the flu. Take the necessary
steps and share the idea with
friends and family-instead
of sharing the illness.
The Alliance for Affordable
Services, an association ded-
icated to helping members live
better and save more, offers
these tips to avoid the flu:
Cover your mouth or
use tissues when coughing
or sneezing.
Wash hands on a regu-
lar basis. Use an alcohol-based
hand rub when soap and
water are not available.

Practicing good
health habits and keeping
current with flu
vaccinations aid in
preventing the flu virus.

Avoid close contact with
others. Stay home if you do
not feel well.
Avoid touching your
eyes, nose and mouth.
Get a flu vaccination
each year.
The Alliance uses its group
buying power to attack soar-
ing health care costs through
wellness programs, informa-
tion, legislative advocacy and
incentives to control medical
costs.

and carried to approve the minutes as
presented.
FRANK DARABI, DARABI &
ASSOCIATES, INC
Frank Darabi came before the
Board representing the Town of
Horseshoe Beach as their engineer. He
discussed growth of HSB and they are
trying to acquire grants to help with the
sewer system; but it is needed now,
before it .grows out of control. The 15
acres that is needed at the county spoil
site discussed before is the best location
for the sewer system. This county has
two (2) cities that I am involved with,
but I am not involved with the CRA for
HSB. This county budget is tight and
the county is not able to comply with the
CRA at this time. Possibly in lieu of the
15 acres, HSB would put off any action
on the CRA for a couple of years.
Commissioner Hays stated it is the
consensus of this Board to help
Horseshoe Beach in anyway we can.
Commissioner Land inquired if the
county did turn the 15 acres over to
HSB, if it will come back to the county
6'6meume in the future.
r', Mr. Darabi sinted it would not.
there iL on-, 7 acres of the 15 that is
usable, the rest is wetlands. If HSB
imposes the CRA it will cost the county
$125,000.
SCommissioner Hays told Mr.
Darabit the CRA came to the Board
after the set budget for FY 2005-2006.
Attorney Lander advised the CRA is
, incorrect.
Commissioner Driggers stated that
he feels that a solution can be negotiated
with HSB.
Mr. Darabi stated that the HSB
Council meets tonight. He asked it the
Board would assign someone to attend
.and negotiate the agreement.
The Board agreed for
Commissioner Valentine, Arthur Bellot,
and Joey Lander to represent the Board
to meet .with a delegation from HSB
Council to negotiate and bring back to
the next meeting on December 15,h a
recommendation.
Anhur Bellot inquired if the CRA is
re-iteld in two years by HSB, would the
'CRA base, measurement be the 2006
taxes.
The Board stated it is understood
that it would be,
Mr. Bennett, HSB Councilman,
'came before the Board and stated he
,would like to comment on the CRA
issue. The CRA was applied for in 2002.
It was advertised and the public hearings
were held. HSB found out from the
State in August of 2005 that we were
eligible and had to have everything in
order immediately. We rushed it due to
advisement.
; Commissioner Hays stated, "But,
the County Tentative Budget for 2005-
2006 was already in place in August
'2005".
S Joey Lander discussed F.S.
regarding the CRA requirements.
Mr Darabi asked everyone to stick
to the problem at hand; that being the
need for the iener system for HSB.
.The Board agreed the CRA could
be discussed at a tierdate.

Mr. Edwards discussed a Cross GCity
Ordinance that requires annexation in
order to supply water and sewer facilities
accounts.
Commissioner Driggers stated that
the county is not going to annex the
airport property. It would serve no
purpose in that the property there
belongs to the county and is tax exempt.
Commissioner Hays stated that the
property is leased to the county and the
county leases the property to others.
Commissioner Driggers commented
on the Cross City ordinance that no one
outside of the city could connect to
water or sewer. Mike Cassidy, City
Manager, is willing to discuss the matter;
but it was my understanding that the
whole city council declined it.
Joey Lander stated that there are no
ad valorem taxes on the airport property.
Commissioner Hays explained to
the public, unfamiliar with the matter,
the need for the hookups. These
businesses will pay for water, sewer, and
all necessary utilities.
Chairman Driggers stated it is his
recommendation to go ahead and
change the application in order to meet
the time deadline.
Motion by Commissioner Hays, on
behalf of Chairman Driggers, seconded
by Commissioner Valentine and carried
to approve the recommendation and for
Commissioner Driggers, Arthur Bellot,
Joey Lander, and Dick Edwards to meet
with the OC Council for negotiation
regarding the Interlocal Agreement.

Billy Keen stated the property in
question is the Southern Nights Saloon
place of business in Old Town.
Commissioner Land commented
that it is close to a church and will not
recommendkit for approval.
James Francway, owner of the
liquor license, stated the -business is
going in someplace; the license is issued
by the state. The difference is if you
approve it here you will not have a
second bar someplace else.
Commissioner Land motioned to
deny it based on his feeling that it is to
near the church.
Mr. Francway commented on a F.S.
regarding 1500 feet limit from a church'
for beer and wine and there is no limit
on liquor. This building has been
located in this place for over 15 years.
Commissioner Land's motion was
seconded by Commissioner Valentine.
Chairman Driggers asked if there was
any further comment from the public.
Donald Pick spoke in favor of the
special exception.
Jean Pick commented that the


Board evidently has no problem with the
American Legion Post serving their
liquor, and spoke in favor of the special
exception.
Commissioner Hays inquired if the
building is leased arid if he would
relocate if the special exception is
denied.
Mr. Francway stated the building is
leased and he would not relocate.
Commissioner Hays commented
that he has a 10 year history in rescue.
There is not a turn lane for the bar and
there have been several serious accidents
at this entrance. He stated that he will
have ,to go with the recommendation of
Commissioner Land and deny it.
For the record---Motioned by
Commissioner Land, seconded by
Commissioner Valentine and carried
with the vote of Commissioner Hays
against the special exception.

Commissioner Lamb's district. The
owner plans to put in a RV Park
Lester Paulk stated he has been an
owner in this area since 1981 and moved
here later. It is a residential
neighborhood and feels the property
values are just beginning to go up and
this would be a step backward. We just
found out about this on Tuesday when it
came out in the newspaper. I have
collected 95. names in one day on this
petition against the RV Park (The
original petition with the signatures
against the RV Park was given to Deputy
Clerk, Downing.)
Linda Dyals informed the Board
that this would be a way to help in
supporting her remaining years. We
wouldn't hurt anyone.
Jimmy Wade spoke against the
special exception.
Ms. Dyals stated that she is just
trying to make a living.
Joan Pell commented to Ms. Dyals
that this is going to be a very big
investment. I am a camper and I respect
you intentions, but I am against this
location.
Commissioner Land commented on
the length of stay being 30 days.
Ms. Pell stated that if she wanted to
live in a mobile home park area, she
would have purchased in a different area.
Paul Johnson stated he just built a
$250,000 home in the past two years. I
pay taxes and I am against this special
exception.
Paula Maddox spoke against the
change. She stated she is a new resident
to the area and feels like this would not
be a good thing. Ms. Maddox added
that if the Commission allows this, it will
set precedence for the future.
Carolyn Wade spoke out against the
change.
Dorothy Helgerson spoke against
the special exception. She stated the
home sites are very pretty in this area
and she expressed concerns about the
septic system.
Marcus Norris, Andrew Gain, and
Morris Anderson spoke against the
petition. Mr. Anderson voiced concerns
regarding trash, traffic and sewer.
Jack Pell commented that at some
point the county stopped camping
privileges at Purvis Landing; apparently
the county had some problems.
The Board inquired if Billy had
received any calls and he informed them
he had not.
Mr. Polk stated that he only learned
about the situation Tuesday and that is
probably the reason Mr. Keen had not
received any calls.
Mr. Norris said it is evident the sign
was not in a good spot.
Motion by Commissioner Valentine,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried to continue the public hearing at
the December 15"' meeting when

RESORT. SUWANNEE. FLORIDA-
Re: Boat ramp
Attorney. Ed Stienmeyer came
before the Board. He stated that his
partner, David Rambus was unable to
attend. Mr. Stienmeyer presented a
letter from Mr. Rambus regarding a plan
to try and clear up a long-standing issue
which relates to the current property
Ownership on and around the boat ramp
located on CR349 adjacent to the


property known as Angler's Resort.
The proposal: First, the owners of
the property (at their own expense)
resurvey the property. Then, the owners
quitclaim to the county the land crossing
the boat ramp and the land extending
across the canal that is under title to the
owners of Angler's Resort. In exchange,
the owners would request that the
county quitclaim to the owners of
Angler's Resort the land currently under
the building, and a thirty (30) foot
property line from the existing seawall of
the subject property, to the extent they
own such property. In addition, the
county execute a long term lease to
owners (20 years) wherein the boat ramp
remains open to the public; reasonable
operating hours shall be set; a reasonable
rate is allowed to be charged for use; the
lease holder is responsible for the
landscaping and upkeep of the area, as


well as supplying garbage cans r1d trash
removal; and the county maintain the
ramp and adjacent seawall on CR349,
and maintains the liability for same. The
new deeds would be drawn up and the
new survey done at the owners expense
with no expense to the county.
Arthur Bellot stated that the county
can't lease something and continue to
maintain it.
Joey Lander stated the county is
interested in keeping the boat ramp
open, but we need some type of
agreement.
Mr. Stienmeyer stated that they just
want a deed to what exists now.
Commissioner Hays had questions
regarding the thirty (30) foot they want
the county to quitclaim near the seawall
and the length of time the boat shed had
been in place.
Commissioner Land stated this is
going to continue to be an ongoing
problem; we might as well sell them the
whole thing. He said the boat shed was
built at least 10 years before he was
elected 20 years ago.
Commissioner Valentine stated that
the boat shelter was built by the county.
The owner of Angler's Resort
discussed the shed and said the shed
built by the county is no longer there; it,
has been torn down.
There was more discussion
regarding the boat shed and plans to
rectify the problem.
Commissioner Hays restated the
exchange plan for clarification; and Mr.
Stienmeyer stated that Commissioner
Hays understands it correctly.
The plan was stated for the record
by Joey Lander, County Attorney as
follows:
"Oorr f Angler's Rest shall deed to
Dixie Corasy that portion of land that lies to
the south of the existing boat ranp and that
portion of the canal ich lies 30 feet from the
existing seamwdL In exchange; Dixie County
deed to the owx-er A ra her's Reort the existing
portion that inidles tihe bat shelter and

Dear Buddy


When I'm with you eternity is a step away,
My love continues to grow with each passing day.
This treasure of love I cherish within my soul,
How much I love you... you'll never really know.
You bring a joy to my heart I've never felt before,
With each touch of your hand I love you more and more.
Whenever we say goodbye whenever we part,
Know I hold you dearly, deep inside my heart.
So these seven words I pray you hold true,
"Forever and always, I will love you."
Happy 18th Birthday Baby,
Love,
Genna

by Leanne Ely

Last week, I wrote about the importance of a
good pantry (that would include your food
cupboard, fridge and freezer). I even gave you a great name for it- the
Perpetual Pantry. A Perpetual Pantry can help you get lunch together in
no time flat, crank out a good healthy breakfast and do dinner, too. It's an
ties important tool in everyone's home.
V. But just like a bookshelf can be bursting with books making the
nd shelf's contents nearly unusable, so can a pantry shelf be bulging with
or stuff that turns your most important dinner (and other meal) producing
I in asset into a land fill. There are boxes of half eaten cereal, bought on sale
(with a coupon) that the kids gave the big thumbs down to and it's been
to sitting there, taking up precious space, for well over six months. Well
the guess what? You need a bona fide Pantry Boogie! This stlff's gotta go! I
to- bet if you look at the cereal shelf, you'll find a few boxes with about a
bowl full left in each. If you're lucky, you might even find some leftover
crackers that you used over the holidays for entertaining left open (don't
uth, you hate it when the inner bag isn't rolled down to keep them fresh?).
and Take a quick 15 minute break to spiff up your pantry (set your timer!).
eof The tomatoes could be hanging out with the tuna for all you know. You
need to separate out your food (like with like) so you can find what you
need! Getting your pantry 'in order can be a bit of a treasure hunt too, you
me, might find a few things you bought that you really didn't need to-you just
couldn't find them before because they were sitting on another shelf or
behind something else.
are I will sometimes have my kids help me unload groceries and though
ten I've given them a personally guided tour through my nifty, organized
J. pantry, they're not as readily paying attention to what goes where, so it's
0se a good idea to go back in on occasion for a quick straighten up. This is
13, simply hot spot prevention in the pantry.
of The other part of the equation to this pantry boogie is finding the stuff
off's you know you will never eat in a million years. You know what I'm
ise talking about the canned veggies missing the label, the old dented cans in
he the back of the cupboard and the hearts of palm or other gourmet goodie
that you have no idea why you bought it in the first place. This stuff must
go! Anything decent and still edible can be taken to a food bank, but the
rest must simply go in the trash. This stuff counts as pounds, too ladies!
And while it might not be the same weight wise as dumping an old
appliance, it still counts and the thrill you will experience when seeing
your pantry logically arranged and ready to work for you will bring you
indescribable joy. Okay, slight exaggeration maybe, but for me, my neat
and spiffy pantry does bring a sense of calm because I can navigate
through my cooking duties better knowing what is (and what isn't) there.
So get moving in your pantry with a couple of bags one for the food
of bank and one for the trash can. Organize your pantry by putting like
the together with like: all your baking supplies together in one spot, all your
nty canned goods, all your cereals...you get the picture. You too, will
:00 experience the pleasure of a perpetual and pleasing pantry when you take
the these steps to get it all cleaned up and working for you like it should be.

Springhouse Quilter's News








0 .. -t.



... .. J ;


The first meeting of 2006 for Springhouse Quilters was held
on Tuesday, January 10 with 47 members and quests present.
Anna Gilliam opened the meeting with a welcome and new years
wishes to all for a successful 2006 quilting year. There were 8
guests in attendance with most of them joining Springhouse
Quilters. Visitors are always welcome at the meetings.
Gloria Sutton, block-of-the-month chairlady, presented a
sample of the January block; a pierced star. This block is similar
to the Ohio Star but has a ray of "light" piercing the upper right
comer of the block. Gloria challenges each member to make a
sample of each month's block and by the end-of-year; a total of 12
blocks would be finished. This would be enough blocks to
assemble into a medium size quilt.
Stephanie Metts, Owner of the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop,
will present the January workshop; "Mett's Surprise." At
present, 25 members have signed to attend the workshop. There
will also be a luncheon on this workshop day, January 24.
Meeting time for the workshop will be 9:00 AM.
It was surprising to see so many beautiful show-and-tell
projects completed since the December 5 meeting. Quilt ladies
stay busy and always have a project in progress. In fact, most of
us have more than one project in progress at all times and always
just waiting to begin another one. A new piece of fabric or pattern
is all a quilter needs to start another quilt project.
Hostess for 2006, Norma Birman, along with a group of
volunteers, did a great job in preparing and hosting the 30-minute
social time prior to the meeting.
Diane Schweder reminded the new members of the beginner
classes scheduled to being on January 19 at 9:00 AM, for the day
group members, and at 6:45 PM on January 24, for the night
group.
Our 2004-5 president, Kay Fales, was absent from the
meeting. Kay has been on the sick list for the last 10 months.
We all at Springhouse, support the Fales family and wish for Kay
the very best.
For additional information on Springhouse Quilters contact
Anna Gilliam, 463 7922, Lois Scott, 463 2207, or any member of
Springhouse Quilters.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006


This week's Dixie'Sighting occurred at the Dixie County Advocate office. The Blue Jay shown
perched atop a radio flew in for a rest and apparently some entertainment last week. It took some
coaching, but the large bird was shown the route back to the door from which it came. Before
leaving it took a grand tour of the old building, including the editor's office.
The Blue Jay inhabits much of the eastern two-thirds of the United States and Canada. In Florida
the Blue Jay is a year-round resident. Not only do they live in populated areas, which they have
adapted very well too, but hardwood swamps, hammocks, pine flatwoods, mixed forests, and
sandhills. It's preferred food is acorns and other seeds or nuts and will pick the sunflower seeds
from birdseed mixtures. They will also take small animals prey, such as insects, bird eggs and
nestlings, lizards, toads and rodents. Perhaps that is one reason why they have a reputation of being
a bully and highly aggressive.
The Blue Jay usually lays 4 or 5 eggs, ranging in color from greenish, bluish, or buffy and has
brown spots. The incubation period is 16 to 18 days. Both parents feed and protect their young until
they leave the nest at around 17 to 21 days of age.
Its "jay, jay, jay" call is well known, however these clever birds have been known to imitate the
call of a Red-shouldered Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk, and Osprey.
How do we know all this.. .well, a little bird told us.
The' Dixie County Advocate is actively seeking unique information for the Dixie County Sightings
column. Call or send your Sightings IN DIXIE COUNTY, to 352-498-3312 or e-mail the picture and
information to news(idca,iadocate.inet.
