Third Judicial Circuit Swears Gainesville Man Killed In Boating
Accident On The Steinhatchee River
In First Female Judge


Pictured left to right are Bryson and Jess Johnson, Leandra Johnson, Richard Johnson and Retired
Appellate Court Judge Arthur Lawrence who administered the oath ofoffice to Leandra as a Third
Judicial Circuit Court Judge.

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last Friday, January 20th, 2006 Leandra Johnson took office as a Third Judicial Circuit Court
judge, the first woman to serve as a judge in the seven county circuit. Surrounded by her parents,
husband, Richard, and two sons, Bryson and Jess, Johnson took the oath of office, administered by
Retired Appellate Court Judge Arthur Lawrence in an overflowed Columbia County Courtroom.
Johnson's appointment by Governor Jeb Bush came after the state Legislature's creation of the
position in 2005 in order to ease the judicial caseload throughout the state. Johnson joins Judges
David Fina, Paul S. Bryan, Julian E. Collins, John W. Peach, E. Vernon Douglas, and James Roy
Bean.
The Third Judicial Circuit encompasses Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee, and Taylor Counties.
Johnson moved to Florida in 1965 at the age of ten when her parents, Dr. Jose and Flora
Goyenchea left Cuba. She spoke only Spanish but was a quick study and soon became fluent in
English as well.

High Winds Cause Rollover

Accident On SR 349


Surprisingly there were no injuries associated with the accident that caused these two vehicles to overturn.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On January 14, 2006, Thomas Brandon Tumlin and some friends were towing a truck down SR
349 to his home with his SUV when the wind caught the trailer and pushed the truck off, causing
both the truck and SUV to overturn.
Tumlin and his passengers were lucky not to have had any injuries associated with the accident.
Tumlin had hopes of putting a motor in the truck.


One boater was fatally injured this past Monday, after the boat he was in hit a channel marker like the one
shown above in the Steinhatchee River.
By Ternri Langford Staff Writer
One man died and another man was seriously injured this past Monday, January 23rd, when their
boat collided with a channel marker leading to the Gulf of Mexico. Both men were from
Gainesville.
Retsae Henderson Miller, 69 was the boat's operator and Edward Raymond Ogle, 63 was the
only passenger in the boat.
According to Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the incident happened
around 8:30 a.m., shortly after they launched from the Jena boat ramp in their 1999 17-foot Scout
flats boat, powered by a Yamaha 115-horsepower outboard. Witnesses reported they had seen the
small craft going fast enough to plane across the water's surface.
It is thought that Miller didn't see the marker and hit it on its starboard side, throwing Ogle out of
the boat who hit the marker before falling back into the boat.
Dixie County emergency services personnel was transporting Ogle by ambulance to a
Gainesville hospital when he died while enroute. Miller was also taken to a Gainesville hospital by
Dixie EMS. His condition as of press time was unknown. Weather had kept helicopter rescue units
from flying to the scene.
Alcohol was not a factor in the accident.


Dixie County Drug Task Force

Make Arrests In Meth Lab


Manufacturing & Trafficking
By Terri Langfbrd Staff Writer
On January 18, 2006 the Dixie County Drug Task Force made four arrests associated with a
methamphetamine (meth) lab found off the Twin Lake Road in Old Town. The arrests came after
the surveillance of a cooler in which meth was being processed, was found and three of the suspects
apprehended.
According to a report filed by the Task Force, officers first found the cooler after receiving an
anonymous tip. Following that tip, a cooler with the "head jar" (the name of a container used to
cook-off the chemicals that make meth) was discovered.
Officers set up surveillance at the site where the cooler was found. On January 18th, the team
witnessed a vehicle being driven by Benjamin Scott Breland, drive up to the site at which time two
suspects later identified as David Smith and Marsha Harrison were seen leaving the vehicle and
retrieved the cooler.
An "all-points bulletin" was put out on the car. It was eventually stopped while traveling on CR
351. One of the suspects was seen throwing a small pill bottle out of the passenger side window,
which was later found to contain meth.
Breland, Smith, Harrison and another passenger in the car, Christopher Cole, were taken from the
car and restrained without incident.
Breland, 32 was charged with Manufacturing Meth and Trafficking Meth; Smith, 31, was
charged with Manufacturing Meth, Trafficking Meth, VOP Manufacturing Meth, VOP Obtaining
Controlled Substance by Fraud or Forgery; Harrison, 24, was charged with Manufacturing Meth and
Trafficking Meth; and Cole, 18, was charged with Manufacturing Meth and Trafficking Meth.
All four suspects are still being held at the Dixie County Jail each with a $100,000.00 bond.
Sheriff Hatcher would like to extend his thanks to his officers, as well as, the person who called
in the tip. "We are always grateful to citizens who are concerned enough to call in tips that led to the
arrest of criminals," Hatcher added. If you have a tip, call the Sheriff s Office at 498-1220.

Old Town Ho we

Pestroyedi Flre

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last Friday, January 20th, the Old Town and Cross City
Volunteer Fire Departments and other emergency personnel
responded to a house fire on Lee Lane off 55A in Old Town. Their
efforts proved to be in vain as the single-wide mobile home was
destroyed in the blaze, leaving the John Luke family homeless.

Pictured above are the remains of a home destroyed in a fire last
Friday, January 20"' located on Lee Lane off 55A in Old Town.
Luke told authorities that he had been sick and laid back down
on the sofa to rest, leaving a space heater on. He woke up to the
sounds of snapping and popping. When he saw the fire he called
911. Division Chief of Fire Services Darin Brown stated their
preliminary investigation into the fire matched Luke's story.
When firefighters arrived the structure was already fully
engulfed. While they were able to save a portion of the outer
structure, they were unable to save its contents.
Luke, his wife, their daughter and granddaughter had lived
there for four years. The family lost everything in the uninsured
home.


Impact Fee Ordinance Passed

Commission Highlights
By Terri Langford
The first item on the Dixie 12'
County Board of County
Commissioners' agenda for the
January 19th meeting was the
final hearing to consider an
ordinance which would |
increase the impact fee for new
construction from $525.00 to
$3,500.00.
The main concern voiced ,':o n ,,
from the public was how it was
going to effect lower income folks, making it harder for them to set
up a new home. Other arguments were on how it would be unfair
for residents setting up storage areas on property and having to pay
for impact fee even though they do not plan on moving onto the
property. Both these issues were explained by the Commissioners.
While this was not a popular move for the Commissioners, it
was one they felt necessary in order to continue to provide services
for our growing communities. The ordinance will go into effect on
February 1, 2006.
In other business, the Commissioners voted to approve and
adopt an Emergency Assistance Procedure in which an applicant,
through no fault of their own, is faced with emergency repairs
and/or replacement due to fire or acts of God.
Applicants for these special SHIP funds will be chosen by
priority ranking and will only be able to receive help if funding is
available at the time of their emergency.
Arthur Bellot, County Coordinator gave an update on the
Courthouse Renovations. Paul Stressing, Architect for the
renovations and representatives from the Construction Manager
DeYoung & Dickey were on hand to answer questions about the
project.
Bids for contractors are currently going out for the renovations
which include expanding the Clerk of Courts Offices by adding
onto the east side of the Courthouse. The project is scheduled to be
completed by the end of June.
The next County Commission Meeting will be held Thursday,
February 2, 2006 at 10:00 AM.

THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Letter To The Editor
By Howard Drew
In a recent letter to thle4o tor, writer Linda Young wrongly
asserted the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and
Buckeye Florida the company I work for have plans to harm
the Fenholloway river and "kill the Gulf." While reasonable
people can disagree about how to best improve the environment,
Ms. Young's attempt to connect Fenholloway water quality issues
with red tide and her mischaracterization of a proposed
wastewater permit for our cellulose manufacturing facility appear
to be willful distortions of the facts.
Buckeye's water quality goals are simple but comprehensive:
improve plant wastewater quality, improve river water quality,
and improve Gulf water quality. These goals include restoring the
Fenholloway to Class 3 (fishable/swimmable) standards.
Significant progress has already been made. Wastewater color
has been reduced by 50 percent, wastewater volume has been
reduced by 22 percent, and the discharge of sodium has been
reduced by 27 percent. The use of elemental chlorine to purify
pulp has been eliminated. A Fenholloway fish advisory has been
lifted by the Florida Department of Health. These necessary
improvements have cost tens of millions of dollars.
Buckeye readily acknowledges there is more to be done. A
proposed nine-year plan of work includes upgrading equipment
within the plant to further reduce color and nutrients in the
wastewater and to increase river oxygen levels; enhancing 6,700
acres of company-owned wetlands to stabilize water flow to the
upper Fenholloway; and removing salty wastewater from the
freshwater portion of the Fenholloway. This latter provision
involves the much-discussed pipeline.
The proposed new wastewater permit for our facility
specifically requires a 47 percent reduction in carbonaceous
biological oxygen demand, a 58 percent reduction in total
nitrogen, a 29 percent reduction in total phosphorous, and an
additional reduction in effluent color.
It is wrong to suggest that relocating Buckeye's treated
wastewater within the Fenholloway will harm Gulf water quality.
The proposed plan of work improves Gulf water quality. Buckeye
will not agree to any plan that creates a new environmental
problem for its neighbors or the company.
Over the past 14 years there have been many Fenholloway
public hearings involving thousands of people and numerous
scientific studies of the river costing millions of dollars. After the
most recent public meeting, exacdy eight people signed a petition
indicating they want to continue to fight the FDEP's proposed
river restoration plan in an administrative hearing.
Although no one enjoys being involved in a legal proceeding, it
is time to move forward with the administrative hearing process.
Ms. Young and the other petitioners deserve the opportunity to
have any legitimate concerns heard by an independent hearing
officer. We are confident the proposed permit is based on good
science and once the facts are shared, the permitting process will
move forward.
There may be those who are not interested in legal wrangling
but are nevertheless interested in learning more about ongoing
efforts to restore the Fenholloway and improve Gulf water
quality. Buckeye continues to provide briefings and tours to
individuals and groups who want to see our operation and the
Fenholloway River firsthand. We value two-way communications
with our neighbors.
To schedule a visit readers can call (850) 584-1275.


Letter To The Editor
In Vol. 84, No. 3 Printed for January 12th, it was printed on
page 12, third column halfway down, starting Clay Bethea:
Clay Bethea, Taylor County Commissioner, came before the
Board. He stated the coast is changing; Woods Marina has been
sold, Westwind is under contract; Seahag is no longer. River
Haven is the only Marina left.
The intent of the statement was talking about the ability to
"launch boats" for the public.
We have gotten a tremendous amount of calls asking
when the Sea Hag Marina is closing.
Can you please print a correction stating that the "Sea Hag
Marina is open for business, has NOT sold, and is not on the
market for sale. Sea Hag Marina launches boats for our dry
storage customers but no longer lifts boats from trailers for the
public due to high liability and complaints of parking issues by
neighboring properties." 1 also spoke with Ideal Marina and they
will continue to stay in operation until at least May, are taking
reservations for Scallops Season, and believe they will be most
likely keep the marina open until the following fall including
launching boats for the public with a sling hoist.
Thank you for your help.

JU IBLE MOUSE ELOPE PASTRY NUMBER
...Anewer: What she eaid when they viewed the famous sculpture -
"MARBLE-OUS",
uki; I'l: / j I


How Ford and GM could survive
By now, most of us have heard about how Ford and General
Motors are being stressed virtually to the breaking point by the
obligation to provide pensions and health care for retired workers.
We've also heard about how they are contemplating a major down-
sizing operation to compensate for lagging sales.
I don't know a whole lot about cars, trucks, etc., except that you
have to keep air in the tires and gasoline in the fuel tank. So far,
the price of air is well within the, reach of the average consumer;
however the price of gasoline (or diesel) is creeping back toward
the three dollar mark, and this time we don't have a hurricane to
blame for the increase.
Instead, the onus is being placed on the "volatile" situation in
Iran, whence comes a considerable percentage of the world's oil
supply. Granted, Iran is primary among several Middle Eastern
trouble spots, but Iran has had that distinction since 1979 and it
hasn't caused the price of crude to fluctuate every time the mullah
of the moment hiccups. At least with Katrina there was an actual
interruption in the supply of motor fuel as a result of storm damage
to refineries. In Iran's case, it is strictly due to speculation as to
what might happen to the oil supply weeks or months down the
road. The only reason that should impact the price of crude oil
right now is that "big oil" hears opportunity knocking.
Incidentally, I was pleased to hear Bill O'Reilly state the fact
that we were experiencing a "ripoff" by the oil companies on his
TV show. A lot of conservative commentators either deny or avoid
this fact Neal Boortz, for example, says that, "adjusted for
inflation," gas prices are no higher now than they were in 1980. He
neglects to mention that, adjusted for inflation, they were too high
then, too.
So, how does this affect Ford and GM? Well, it gives them an
opportunity to put something on the market that the public would
snap up. in a heartbeat: a fuel-efficient economy car. Rumor has it
that China is about to put one on the U.S. market. Not that I like
the idea of buying Chinese over American, but the fact is that
American manufacturers could already be marketing fuel efficient
cars at a low end price and' doing it better than the relatively
inexperienced Chinese auto makers if they wanted to!
I hate to keep bringing up my 1988 Chevrolet Sprint (most of
which was made by Suzuki) but it got 50 miles to the gallon,
highway or in town with the AC going, when it was new and it still
gets close to 40 MPG. Eighteen years later, even the Japanese
"economy" cars-let alone the Detroit-built models-can't seem to
match that.
And why not? The technology involved hasn't exactly been
standing still for nearly two decades. Why aren't they making cars
that get 80.miles to the gallon?
My guess is that they just don't want to. And why would they
not want to-not the American manufacturers, or even the
Japanese, who come from a place where gasoline costs a whole
heap more than it does here?
Maybe the auto manufacturers have cut a deal with the oil
companies. Maybe they plan to file for bankruptcy, pay their top
execs huge bonuses, leave the market to the Japanese and leave
their retirees to survive on Social Security.
Just a thought, albeit not a very pleasant one; but otherwise,
with America's top two teetering on the brink of disaster, one
might think they could do something more innovative than putting
people out of work and cutting back on the production of SUV's.

Senator Rod Smith Named

Legislator of the year by Florida

Development Disabilities Council
State Senator Rod Smith has been named Legislator of the Year
by the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council for his work to
ensure that healthcare services to Florida's disabled population are
not reduced by recent Medicaid reforms.
During the 2005 Special Session on Medicaid, Senator Smith
was at the forefront in staving off a backdoor attempt to expand
mandatory HMO enrollment to every Medicaid recipient in the
state. Further, Senator Smith championed efforts to protect services
to Floridians with-':developmental disabilities by excluding them
from the reform's new spending cap.
"When I'm given the choice between doing what's in the best
interest of the HMO or the healthcare consumer, the choice is
pretty cut and dry," said Senator Smith. "We should all remember
who loses when we throw our most vulnerable to HMOs who are
out to maximize their profits."
"Senator Smith has been a true champion for the
developmentally disabled population," said Debra Dowds,
Executive Director of the Florida Developmental Disabilities
Council. "He has listened carefully to our concerns and has helped
make the entire Senate aware of the issues that impact the
developmentally disabled. We are fortunate to have such a tireless
and.passionate advocate as Senator Smith on our side."
The Developmental Disabilities Council encourages and
advocates opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities
and their families, to enhance their quality of life within their
communities. Their website is www.fddc.org.
This is the second year in a row Senator Smith has earned this
recognition. He is the first legislator to receive the honor two years


in a row

"SPELLING BEE"
Continuledfrom page I


2005-2006 District Spelling Bee Contestants
There were 14 participants in this years' vie for the title of best speller. Spellers from Anderson
Elementary were Chesney Young, Rashaan Jones, Caylan Davis and Shayna Chewning. Old Town
Elementary School's spellers were Laina Moyer, Amanda Weaver, Levi Carpenter, and Adrian
Maxwell, and from Ruth Rains Middle School were Jennifer Allen, Lee Goodson IV, Jacob Manos,
Dustin Payton, Lina Davis and Audrey Moore. Congratulations to you all!
The Ruth Rains Middle School Cafetorium was packed with family and friends of the young
scholars, giving them support as they thought about each word given to them to spell.
In the end it was Lania and fellow "OTES'er" Amanda Weaver who would keep the audience on
the edge of their seats as they volleyed back and forth, spelling 13 words, before Laina spelled out
the championship word "Tantalize".
Besides her title, Laina won a savings bond from Capital City Bank. All the participants
received coupons from Dairy Queen, Hardee's, McDonald's and Subway. We really appreciate
these sponsors' support of our youth.
We wish Laina the best of'luck as she travels to Tallahassee for the Big Bend Regional Spelling
Bee, sponsored by the Tallahassee Democrat. We know she will do her best and represent Dixie
County well.
Laina is the daughter of Roger and Brenda Moyer of Old Town.

"JUDGE"
Continued from page 1


It was pointed out that Johnson was not only
the first woman judge in the circuit, but she was
also the American by choice not by birth to hold
a judges position.
She excelled in school, graduating from high
school a year early in order to take community
college classes. In 1979, she graduated from the
University of Florida with a bachelor's degree
in journalism but continued her education, going
onto law school. In 1981 Johnson received her
law degree and immediately began working
with the State Attorneys' Office in Alachua
County. Johnson worked with Third Circuit
State Attorney Jerry Blair for 15 years as an
assistant state attorney, before going into private
practice.
Johnson stated that while she loved her work
as an assistant state attorney, she didn't like the
24/7 schedule that came with it. A longtime'
Lake City resident, Johnson went to work for a
Lake City law firm, the same firm from which


Dixie's Judge Fred Koberlein worked for before
his appointment to Dixie County. She also
worked for the Columbia County School System
as their attorney before taking the judgeship
appointment.
Judge Koberlein had this to say, "We here in
the Third Judicial Circuit are blessed to have a
someone of Judge Johnson's caliber." "In fact,
not withstanding her short physical stature, I
have to look up to her as she now presides in a
higher court," he added smiling. Koberlein
noted that Johnson was also presented a
"booster seat", by Guy Norris, she and
Koberlein's former law partner.
Also attending the ceremony were Sue
Koberlein and Dixie's Clerk of Court Interim,
Chad Reed and his wife Holly.
Johnson stated that besides her promise to
work hard, her goal is to be useful and enjoy her
new job.

Coal Plant

Opponents Plan
Meeting In

Steinhatchee -

Thursday,

January 26,

7:00 P.M.
Residents opposed to the
coal-fired power plant
proposed for Taylor County
believe that it will have. a
devastating impact on area
health, environment, economy
and infrastructure. Fear that
pollution from burning coal
will combine with pollution
from Buckeye has many
people worried about their
health.
Grass-roots efforts to
stop the plant began last June
after local elected officials
invited the utility to locate in
Taylor County without first
providing public notice. The
subject was not placed on a
commission agenda, denying
constituents any input on the
future of the county. Scientific
and medical concern about
emissions was not obtained
prior to the decision.
Residents know that an issue
of this magnitude requires in-
depth consideration of all
possible consequences.
Continued attempts to
convince county
commissioners to reconsider
their decision or allow citizens
to vote have been
unsuccessful. Petitions
requesting a vote are being
circulated.
A meeting to provide
information to the public is
scheduled for Thursday,
January 26 at 7 pm at the
Steinhatchee Community
Center. Topics to be discussed
include: mercury poisoning,
water pollution, water
consumption, air pollution,
traffic congestion from daily
coal trains and eminent
domain. Residents will also
share ideas, for stopping the
plant. There will be printed
material on many subjects.

Bluegrass Concert At McCall's
January 29"' is the fifth Sunday in January, and as is usually the
custom at McCall's Chapel United Methodist Church we have fifth
Sunday pitch in dinner after the 11:00 A.M. service. What sets this
Sunday apart from the other fifth Sundays is after we have filled
our plates, the sound of Bluegrass music that will fill the air.
One of the organizers of the group is former pastor Rush
Severance and the rest of the group are local musicians who call
themselves the Suwannee River Boys.
Why not come and make a day of it? Hear the word of God
preached in the morning, get fed from the bountiful table at our
noon dinner, hear the word. of God sung and played in the
afternoon and go home knowing it was good to be in God's house

Calvary Temple News
Ask a fisherman how to catch fish and they can explain in
detail. Ask the deer hunter about his last successful hunt and he
can describe it in detail. They can explain it because they have
"experienced it!" Ask the average Christian why they believe what
they believe and most have no idea. Christians should be able to
give a biblical answer to a seeking soul concerning their faith.
The year of 2006 is the beginning of something very special
with God. Something so special that many who do not know the
Lord will be asking questions. Many opportunities will avail for
you to share your faith with others. To not be able to "give an
accurate answer" is to let both them and God down. You are a
soldier in the army of God. You are not a civilian any longer as a
believer. A good soldier equips himself to serve.
Beginning February 12 at 7:00 pm Calvary Temple will be
offering 'A New Believer Class' that will cover the basics of the
Christian faith. This will be a thirteen-week course that will cover
the basics. It will be held in the Annex of Calvary Temple. Casual!
You do not need to be a member of Calvary to participate.
If you are a member of another fellowship and would like to
participate, you "will not" be encouraged to change churches.
Certificates of completion will be awarded to all who attend at
least ten classes. Please mark this on your calendar, as we probably
will not mention it again. Feb. 12 at 7:00 pm, Calvary Temple
Annex.

Earth
The Word Made

Flesh
God's Sabbath

Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say do you think the
crippled man ever wondered why it
took so long for this to happen to
him? For 38 years he had this
infirmity. Then the healing came
on the Sabbath. IDcar ones, this
world has had an infirmity for much
longer than 38 years. The sickness
has been deep and painful and no
man has been able to cure it. Th'"
nations are sick today ant there is
no answer in man. But, 'the Sons of
God shall appear and then inlirlniy
shall be healed. To God be the
glory! Thank God for the coming
7"' day, God's Sabbath, the age of
healing! I, the son of man, say
turning to John 9, we read a
thrilling story of a man who had
bcen blind from birth. It was not be
accident that Jesus came his way,
and on the Sabbath day. Whose
fault is this? The disciples wanted
to know if it was his sin or his
parents. But, Jesus indicated that
the man was this way so that the
works of God could be manifested
in him on the Sabbath day. Notice
what Romans 8:19-21 says: For the
earnest expectation of the creature
waiteth for the manifestations of the
sons of (ind. For the creature was
made subject to vanity, not
willingly, but by reason of him who
hath subjected the same in hope.
I Because the creature itself also
shall be delivered from the bondage
of corruption into the glorious
liberty of the children of God. I,
the son of man, say so we see a
creature that has been subjected to
futility. We see a world that has
been born blind, a people who have
never seen the light of Day, God's
Sabbath. And we wonder whose
fault it is. But, we see the word
coming to the 7'h day, the age of
healing. And we see their eyes
being opened. What a shock this
will be to the religious world! They
would rather have seen the man
remain blind, than to see their
dbctrines come crashing Jsown
around their cars. Nevertheless, the
man's eyes were opened, he saw.
the light of day and, finally, he even
saw the son of God. And beloved,
this blinded creation which has so
long walked in darkness, blinded by
religion, by intellectualism, by
ignorance, by witchcraft and by
humanism, will have their eyes
opened on the Sabbalh. They will
even see sonship and will know the
Son in the power of Ilis
resurrection. Let the religious
leaders try to protect their dogmas
and creeds. They shall all crumble
in the light of the reality of Clhlist.
The 7'" day, the age of healing will
see the opening of eyes and the
deliverance of creation from the
bondage of death and decay.

Lock In The Current Prepaid
Prices Today!
This Year's Prepaid College Open Enrollment Period


Ends Tuesday. January 31st


January 31s is the last day of this year's open enrollment
period for the Florida Prepaid College Plan. Why is this date so
important? It is the last day that parents and grandparents can
lock in the current Prepaid Plan prices and avoid paying increased
tuition costs in the future. By enrolling today, families not only
get the peace-of-mind that comes with the guarantee offered by
the State of Florida4, but a financial strategy that could save them
thousands of dollars in years to come.
According to Ernst & Young, the Florida Prepaid College
Board's actuarial consulting firm, when today's newborns enter
college 18 years from now, the cost of a 4-year education at a
Florida public university (including tuition, local fees and
dormitory housing) will be approximately $93,628. With the
Florida Prepaid College Plan, today a family can purchase 4 years
of tuition, local fees and dormitory housing at a Florida public
university for a newborn for approximately $28,191, if made in a
lump-sum payment, and save more than $65,000*.
"The Prepaid College Plan provides Florida families with an
affordable means to save for their children's future college
expenses," states Tom Wallace, Executive Director of the Florida
Prepaid College Board. "Families can save hundreds if not
thousands of dollars by locking in the prices now and avoid
paying higher fees in the future. If families were ever considering
college for their children, now is the time to enroll in the Prepaid
College Plan."
The Prepaid College Plan is financially guaranteed by the
State of Florida, making it a safe and affordable way to save for
college.t This year, tuition plan prices start as low as $24 a month
for the two-year community college plan and $79 a month for the
four-year university plan. The prices vary based on the type of
plan selected and the age of the child enrolled. Once registered,
the plan payments are fixed and never increase. Sign up now and
your first payment is not due until April 2006.
When the child is ready for college, the program covers the
actual cost at any Florida public university or community college,
or the value of the plan may be transferred to most private
colleges in Florida, select technical schools and most out-of-state
colleges. To qualify, the child or the child's parent/guardian must
be a Florida resident. Anyone, including parents, grandparents,
friends or even businesses, can purchase a plan.
Don't let another year go by and pay more for what you can
get now! To lock in this year's prices, you must submit an
application online or by mail by Tuesday, January 31, 2006.
To enroll online, visit www.florida529plans.com or call 1-800-
552-GRAD (4723) to request an enrollment kit and application.

The 55th Annual Florida Beef Cattle Short Course at the
University of Florida will be held on May 3-5, 2006, at the Hilton
University of Florida Conference Center in Gainesville, Florida.
Beef cattle production in Florida is a dynamic and challenging
industry. Every producer faces challenges regarding economics
and marketing, resource utilization, and management decisions.
These challenges are on-going processes that necessitate current
information for decision making. The 55th Annual Florida Beef
Cattle Short Course addresses these challenges that the beef cattle
producers face on an everyday basis. The Wednesday afternoon
program will begin at 1 pm with the focus on marketing and land
resource utilization challenges. As the cattle cycle evolves,
knowing where we are and where the market may be headed is
always pertinent. In addition, this session will focus on a timely
and important topic for the sustainability of the beef cattle
industry. The beef cattle enterprise's land resources and the
continuing issue of land use and value in Florida will be
approached on a number of different fronts. The day will
conclude with a reception and Allied Industry Trade Show, a
great chance for cattlemen and allied industry representatives to
interact and share information. The program Thursday addresses
some of the management issues of beef cattle production.
Nutrition, cow herd management, beef products, and beef product
procurement systems will all be addressed. These basic issues of
beef production will be approached with improved production
efficiency in mind. Lunch will generously be sponsored by Farm
Credit of North Florida. The afternoon program moves outside to
utilize the UF/IFAS, Beef Teaching Unit to demonstrate calf
processing, cattle evaluation, and hay production techniques.
Thursday evening is capped by the annual Cattlemen's Steak-Out,
an opportunity to enjoy a prime rib dinner and time for
conversation. On Friday morning, the program highlights the
University of Florida's ongoing dedication to beef cattle
production. Two concurrent sessions will showcase some of the
current research efforts in the Animal Sciences and Agronomy
departments that relate directly to the Florida beef cattle producer.
Alternatively, that morning will be an opportunity for interested
producers to attend a Florida Beef Quality Producer training
session. Securing the ability and the resources to maintain the
beef industry in Florida will continue to be a challenge. Utilizing
new and innovative production practices to profitably produce
quality beef cattle and beef products will be an important key to
: maintaining the opportunity we have to enjoy a profession and
* lifestyle in the beef industry.
Registration cost is $90 per participant before April 21, and
includes a copy of the Beef Cattle Short Course proceedings,
trade show, refreshments, and Steak-Out ticket. Complete
information, schedules, and registration can be found online at

Senator Rod Smith Calls for
Immediate Action to Assist

Patients During Transition to

Medicare Part D

State Senator Rod Smith today called for immediate action by
state government to assist patients in need of prescription drugs
and medical procedures whose cases are in limbo. Too many
patients have been denied potentially life saving care while the
federal government works through the transition to Medicare Part
D.
"At least 24 other states have taken action to help their citizens,
and Florida should do the same," said Smith. "We have heard
horror stories from the mental health community, patients on
hemo-dialysis, and others who are being denied care while the
federal government works out the kinks in the program. This is
unacceptable. State government has a moral and ethical
obligation to intervene and assist these citizens."
In a letter to Governor Jeb Bush, Senator Smith urged the
governor to take action immediately, and noted that the federal
government is already taking steps to ensure that states will be
reimbursed for costs outlaid during the transition.
"We must act quickly to give our citizens the life-saving drugs
and care they need and work with the federal government to fix
the problems with Medicare," Smith added.

Buddy Martin's

Good to the last dropped
On a Saturday when all of the mighty fell, the Florida
Gators were the last undefeated team standing when they tipped
off against Tennessee. They wound up losing, 80-76,
in a raucous Thompson-Boling Arena setting that was
more like a UT-UF football game than it was .
basketball.
For Billy Donovan's team, being ranked No. 2
and almost No. I was an accomplishment within in "T
self, considering the Gators were picked fifth in the ,..
SEC East by writers.
The shame of it was that the Gators led almost
the whole game and wound up losing to an inferior
team because they couldn't take care of the ball when
it counted. Plus the fact that their sharpshooter
had lost his eye and his confidence.
Credit Tennessee with hanging on and clawing its way to
victory. Without Corey Brewer turning over the ball on a two-on-
one fast break for what would have been the tying bucket in the
final seconds, however, it would have probably been a different
outcome. Conversely, that Brewer was even on the floor after such
a bad foot sprain was a gift.
Donovan got the play and the situation he wanted when
Florida trailed by a bucket. Three-point specialist Lee Humphrey
himself a Tennessean coming home to play before many of his
friends and family -- spotted up for a possible game-winner and
missed. It was just one more mis-fire for the junior from nearby
Maryville, who failed a make a field goal all night.
On the upside, SEC basketball at its best was showcased.
And the Gators now have the pressure off of them, knowing full
well they really never were the No. I in America in the first place.
"It was a great college basketball game with both teams
going back and forth and they were able to take the lead on a
play," Donovantold td he media. "We got Lee a pretty good shot
and if he makes it, we're up by one. It was a little bit short. I
thought it had a great chance to go in."
Sadly for Gators fans, it was a rare opportunity to have
seen their team make it to No. I again given the Duke loss to
Georgetown Saturday. In reality, however, no team is good
enough to be unbeaten this year and the tremendous 17-0 jump
out of the box was a gift to Donovan, whose team should only get
better by tournament time.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Is it me, or are you also having a tough time getting buzzed
about the start of the 2006 PGA Tour season?
2. Oh to be young and assistant NFL coach today that's where
most of the new head coaches are coming from these days.
3. I1 hope the shabby treatment of assistant Joe Barry the Bucs
wouldn't let him go to join father-in-law Rod Marinelli in Detroit
comes back to bite Bucs GM Bruce Allen someday.
4. With ABC going out of the TV golf business, somebody ought
to sign up Paul Azinger and Nick Faldo, the most refreshing duo
since Ben Wright and Gary McCord of CBS.
5. Talk about bad timing for Time-Warner's high definition
cable boxes to go on the blink in the Cape Coral-South Punta
S. Gorda region: The weekend of the AFC and NFC championship
games!

But for a desperation shot by Rajon Rondo in Rupp Arena

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.
Buddy: Reading in your column about (Marcus) Vick going to go
to the NFL. That should come as no surprise, Look at some of the
others with same problems. Maurice Clarett and Adrian
McPherson. (He even was dropped from FSU and I thought no
one ever got thrown of the FSU team.) It seems like star athletes
never go to jail, they just go turn pro. It is interesting that nothing
happened to Vick until after the football season was over. I admit
being caught on TV made it pretty hard to ignore. I am sure there
is room in pro ball for another hot shot. Just tell TO and
Keyshawn Johnson to move over for one more.
Bill Havill, Port Charlotte
BILL: Well wouldn't you know it. Just Saturday the
president of VaTech asked the athletic director to "review the
situation" involving Vick's stomping on the calf of a Louisville
player and, three days after being kicked off the team, pulling a
gun on three people at a restaurant. Wanna bet he's not playing for
VaTech next fall?

Pictured are: Caleb,Luke and Canann MacCullough visiting
Manatee Springs State Park from Odessa,Fl. Amy Teague from
the U.S.G.S. Sirena Project taught park visitors how researchers
use scars and other methods to identify individual manatees.
Chiefland-Manatee Springs State Park Rangers once again
invite you to visit them and their featured guest speakers during
Manatee Awareness Month. The series has run throughout the
month of January, but you still have an opportunity to talk with
manatee rescue experts from the Chassahowitzka National
Wildlife Refuge this coming Saturday, January 28th from 10:00am
till 2:00pm
Manatee Awareness Month was established to bring attention
to the gentle giants that are such a familiar sight at many of
Florida's springs during the winter months. The springs of
Florida's karst topography emit clear mineral-rich water at a
constant 72 degrees throughout the Nature Coast and other areas
of North Central Florida, which provides the habitat that manatees
need during colder weather.
This months previous guests have included speakers from the
Save the Manatee Club in Orlando and Annette Long, local
resident and one of Florida's two "Springs Ambassadors" This
past Saturday (Jan.21st) two staff members from the U. S.
Geological Service's Sirena Project spent time with park visitors
explaining how radio telemetry equipment is used to track wild
manatees and other issues that concern manatee researchers.
Children eagerly practiced identifying various wild manatees
using information they learned while listening to Sirenia Project
staffers, Susan Butler and Amy Teague.
For the last weekend in January, from the (USFWS)
Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge in Crystal River comes
refuge boat operator Bob Quarles with the refuge manatee rescue
boat. The vessel is open at the stern or back of the boat, so that
the rescue net can easily unfold into the water. It is operated from
a remote console about 12 feet above the deck. Come watch a
demonstration if you have ever wondered how such a large
animal is removed from the water without harm.
For more information about Manatee Springs State Park's
Manatee Awareness Month or other park events and programs

DID YOU KNOW?
A new study has discovered that low-fat dairy products.can
play an important role in lowering high blood pressure without
using costly drugs. The study, conducted in Spain, followed 5,900
people for two years and found that those who had the highest
intake of low-fat milk, yogurt and other dairy products were half as
likely to develop high blood pressure as those whose consumption
was the lowest. Chief researcher Dr. Alvaro Alonso, now with the
Harvard School of Public Health, admits that his team is not sure
why low-fat dairy affects blood pressure the way it does. But it
appears to work in people of all ages, from childhood to those
older than 90. (Sun)
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a glass of beer
may keep cancer at bay. Researchers at Oregon State University
found that a nutrient called xanthohumol found in the hops used to
make beer may inhibit many types of cancer, including breast,
colon, ovarian and prostate. "Xanthohumol is one of the more
significant compounds for cancer prevention that we've studied,"
said researcher Fred Stevens. The highest levels are found in
porter, stout and ale brews. (The National Enquirer)
Cell phones are corroding family life by bringing stress from
work into the home, reports new research. Instead of being able to
relax at home and forget about problems at work, the cell phone
makes it easy to keep men and women tied to their jobs, concludes
a study at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. While men
suffered from having work brought into the home by cell phones,
women were hit in both directions since the cell phone also allows
problems from home to come to their workplace. (National
Examiner)
A lack of sleep not only makes people grumpy but dumb, sick
and fat. That's the conclusion of German sleep researcher Juergen
Zulley. "Sleep deficiency makes you stupid because it diminishes
memory," explains Zulley, who recommends at least seven hours
of sleep a night. "Too little sleep makes you sick because it can
damage the heart, stomach and intestine, and fat because sleep
I prompts our bodies to release a hormone that reduces appetite."
(National Examiner)
Hey pooch .owners, give your poor dog a bone... a high-tech
bone phone, that is. Now, people can literally stay in touch with

( their pets by using the first cell phones for Fidos. The PetCell is a
bone-shaped device that allows you to talk to your four-legged
friend over a two-way speaker attached to the collar. Now an
owner can communicate instructions to a canine pet. One available
option is GeoFence, which lets owners know if their pup wanders
out of preset boundaries and it reveals if the pet is hot or cold,
thanks to built-in temperature sensors. Even better, owners can
map the location of a lost dog, since the PetCell includes a GPS
system, and a "call owner" button that strangers, who find the
missing pooch, can press to contact the owner. (National
Examiner)
Girls are far more cruel, mean and vindictive than boys,
according to a new study. The "Mean Girl" syndrome is worst
among girls ages 13-15, the so-called "beauty pageant" years, and
there seems to be no boundaries as to how far they will go to
q : torment one other. Some girls have been invited to nonexistent
Events, and then had the Internet, plastered with embarrassing
photos of their struggles trying to find the non-party. Teens have
put their victims' toothbrushes in the toilet and posted pictures of
them online. Others have baked dog food into a cake and given it
to another girl to eat. (National Examiner)

Grin and Bear It
Texas did it, and so can we! That pretty much was Jebediah's
words as he led his hearty and heavily armed band of men to the
home of General Marinao Vallejo. The general was the
commander and then-governor of the area we now call California.
It was under the control of Mexico and Jeb and his men felt, after
hearing of the great Texas revolution a few years before, that they
could do they exact same thing in California. So, they took the
general hostage and declared their independence. To celebrate
their new independent status, Jebediah decided that they needed a
new flag for the Republic of California, and he scribbled off a
hastily written note to a fellow they knew who was a pretty good
painter. Well, the ink on the note ran and smeared a bit enroute but
William Todd,.the painter, pretty much could figure out that Jeb
wanted a picture of a bear on the flag. Made sense, California was
full of bears at the time and the bear was a strong and ferocious
animal a good symbol of the strength and resolve of the new
Republic. The flag was painted, and as you know, that symbol has
become very famous over the years as representing the great state
of California.
But, it was, well, a mistake! Yeah. You see, Jeb didn't say he
wanted a bear. No. Remember I said the ink ran a bit. Well, Jeb
wanted a pear! Yeah, the fruit. For a good reason. Jeb was a very
successful farmer in northern California, and he raised pears. As a
matter of fact he actually developed a line of pears himself. He
thought that the pear was the best symbol of the real strength of the
new republic, representing the fabulous agriculture that the state
had to offer. But when the new flag was brought back, with the
animal on it and not the fruit, in their haste to have a new symbol,
the men raised the flag anyway.
S Within a few months Commodore John Sloat captured
Monterey and proclaimed California to be American Territory and
Jeb lost his authority over the area. Believe it or not, when
California adopted their official flag in 1911, the pear idea had
been forgotten altogether. They were so used to the bear that the
idea stuck. That's right. It was all a big mistake. It was supposed
to be a pear, not a bear.
But here are a couple of things that make this story even more
interesting. The painter who drew the bear, William Todd, well,
he was the nephew of Mary Todd Lincoln, soon to be wife of
Abraham. And remember I said that Jeb was a very successful
fruit farmer? Well, It's a Little Known Fact that Jeb is the man
who developed something that you have enjoyed many times,
which is why he wanted the state symbol to be a pear. You see
Jebediah's last name was Bartlett.
Does the name Jeb Bartlett sound familiar? If you're a fan of
the television show the West Wing, it does. When the writers of
the show were putting it together, they decided to honor the man
who set California free and name the main character after the man
who invented the Bartlett Dear.

Moose Lodge Receives Art
Donation From Local Artist

Suwaniee River Moose Lodge Governor, Bernie Anderson, accepts
"Tranquility"froin Old Town artist, Debra Moore.
Old Town artist and Women of the Moose (WOTM) member,
Debra Moore, presented her painting, Tranquility, to lodge
Governor Bernie Anderson and the Members of the Suwannee
River Moose Lodge 325, Chapter 494, the evening of January 17,
2006.
Stating that she hoped the members would enjoy viewing her
work as much as she did creating it, Tranquility was received with
a hardly round of applause, oo's, and awe's.
Accompanied by her husband, Dan, and dear friend, Cross City
resident and outstanding artist, Mary Squilla-Taylor, Debra
described the vision of her creation as something she imagined



TheDnwer ~ Di a
By Leanne Ely


Erasmus said, "Habit is
overcome by habit."

With the billions of dollars that are spent
each year by people hoping to lose weight once and for all, it is the
people who understand the principle of exchange and choice that
ultimately win the war on body clutter (excess weight). These are the
people who become the success stories we love reading about and
secretly hope that one day, that will be our story, too. This very simple
principle of exchanging one habit (eating ice cream after dinner every
night) for another (taking the dog for a walk) has the ability to tweak
your lifestyle enough to dramatically alter your weight--and much less
painfully than you would think.
I call mindless eating unconscientious grazing. The hand to mouth
exchange that is done with an almost numbing rhythm, one chip at a time,
one M & M at a time will pile it on without the participant's awareness! It
almost doesn't matter what we're eating because it's forgotten about after
about the 5th or 6th munch anyway. This style of eating is reminiscent of
the way a cow spends her day--grazing In other'words, eating all day
with the jaw constantly moving. The only difference being of course, that
we have one stomach and choose not to throw up and re-chew our food
(one would hope so anyway).
If we are going to lose the unconscientious grazing habit and replace it
with the healthy new habit of conscientious eating, we need to bring back
the old fashioned value of mealtimes. Good eating habits are established
one meal at a time. A great starting place is the family dinner table. All
too often our dinner time eating habits become yet another place where
the food is fast, "served" in the back of a car and amidst a frenzy of
activity. Our "dinner conversation" becomes, "do you want fries with
that?" instead of asking about everyone's day.
One of my passions is making sure people understand that their dinner
table is not just a place of good family dinners, but also a place of
communion for a family that desperately needs to reconnect at the end of
a busy day. Too often the dinner table becomes a clutter magnet. A place
to dump the mail, the kids' backpacks and homework after zipping
through the drive-thru. This is a place where not only conscientious
eating can take place, but the good habit of relationship building and the
tying together of heartstrings that may have been inadvertently cut by a
rushed parent. Study after study has shown that children that eat together
with their parents regularly, have less problems (drugs, sex, poor
performance in school) than their non-eating-dinner-together-iith-their-
families, peers.
We all know that eating in front of the TV is an almost guaranteed
reservation at The Overeating Cafe. It also assures that there will be no
conversation (except maybe a request for salt being passed or a fleeting
comment made during a commercial). It is an interesting phenomenon
how once that habit of the dinner table is re-established; the food
becomes healthier and more nutritious and psychologically, the whole
family does better.
Good habits like establishing regular mealtimes, also have the
advantage of an almost built in control mechanism. Instead of mindless
grazing.for hours in front of the TV, there is a beginning and ending point
to the meal. The mindless feeding is turned off because the meal is over.
Such a simple concept, and yet so very powerful once implemented.
Make it a point to get to your dinner table at least twice this week and see
what happens.

from the moment she purchased the canvas.
A rather unique size and form, a 12 x 36-inch gallery wrap,
Moore's work does not necessarily need framing as the acrylic
painting carries over onto the sides of the canvas, and can be
enjoyed from all angles.
Moore stated that from the moment she began painting the
piece she felt it would be appreciated more by her lodge than
anywhere else. Her decision to donate the piece was final upon
completion of the work in late 2005.
Debra stated that she hoped Dixie county residents who are not
yet members of the lodge Would consider joining. "The activities
available are outstanding, the people are wonderful, and Moose
International is a marvelous organization."

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, January 19"' at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was another day for quilts to be put
together and quilting will be done at home. Pat Osowieki has
pieced a Log Cabin with applique flowers and it should go to the
Fair next year. Alice Miller who comes up from Dunnellon got her
quilt top ready and one day she will bring it back all quilted for us
to see.
Tuesday, Cleo Pravatt and I traveled to Tampa to do some
judging at the fair. It is always a fun day and Lois Duffy does a-
great job of running the Florida Living Building. We. met some
people down there, invited them to come up and visit, and today
they came and got here in time to have lunch with us. They really
enjoyed their day and it's always great to meet friends.
We still have a few seats on the bus. If you want to go to the
Fair call 493-2801. We go down February 14"' for the day.
Our prayers are with Millie Coots as she is having some health
problems. It seems so many are sick and having so many problems
and it seems it takes so long to get well. Times are always
changing and it seems to be getting worse, so we all need to take
good care of ourselves.
Lunch was great with chili, lots of mac and cheese, water
buffalo stew, roast beef and potato, lots of casseroles, lots of salads
and yummy desserts, Marie's? and so much more. 30 members and

What Makes A Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous sold of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,

Sons of Confederate Veterans Hold

2nd Annual Lee/Jackson Dinner
By Anna Wild
On Saturday, January 14, 2006 members from 10 Florida camps of the Sons of Confederate
Veterans meet at the Alachua Woman's Club for the 2nd Annual Lee / Jackson Dinner. The evening
was hosted by the John Hance O'Steen Camp 770 of Gilchrist County, Dixie Defenders Camp 2086
of Fanning Springs, and Madison Starke Perry Camp 1424. Approximately 160 members and guests
were present to share dinner, fellowship and their heritage.
Present at the dinner were special guest speakers; General Tom Jessee, representing General Lee,
Emery Thrift, Representing General Jackson, and Hal Merritt, Representing General Merritt of the
Union Army. After dinner ,
these three Generals spoke to
the guests about their lives ,'t-
during the Civil War. Ai
General Merritt spoke of how '
it felt to be a Union General
coming up against General
Lee or Jackson. Hal Merritt '
as General Merritt explained
the admiration felt when
finding his opponent was one '
of the great leaders General
Robert E. Lee or General ". :'
"Stonewall" Jackson and it -. .
was an honor to fight against .
them. General Tom Jessee as
General Robert E. Lee shared W7
some moments of his life with'



high honors (2nd in his class
without any demerits). In Members from 10 Florida Camps of the Sons of Confederate Veterans
1846 he went to fight in the came together on Saturday, January 14'1 to remember their heritage.
Wa with Mexico where e General Tom Jessee representing General Lee and Emery Thrift
received mch of hi ihti representing General Jackson were pleased to share some life
received much of his fighting moments fiom the lives of these two great Generals from the Civil
experience. He was awarded War.
the honorary title of Brevet
Colonel for his gallantry during that war. Later the President asked him to go to Harpers Ferry to
suppress John Brown and his rebellion. Later he would resign his commission to fight in the Civil
War for the Confederate Army. Emory Thrift as General "Stonewall" Jackson explained many
similar events in his life including a difficult childhood but still he went onto graduate from West
Point. He also served in the War with Mexico and was also called to Harpers Ferry to control the
rebellion. He went onto be one of the most recognized Generals to lead in the Civil War until he
was mortally wounded during a maneuver at Chancellorsville where he had to have his left arm
amputated and died 8 days later of pneumonia.
Special Guest Speaker Commander Jack Bridwell of the Army of Tennessee commended the
three on their job representing their respective Generals. He impressed upon the group the
-importance of one's heritage and the need to pass on the knowledge and the truth about your
heritage. One of the largest threats to the Sons of Confederate Veterans are individuals who wish to
wipe away all of the heritage and remembrances of the Civil War. Commander Bridwell asked that
the members make sure the truth about what they stand for is being passed onto others. He is
fighting to keep their right to fly the Confederate Flag and have the Civil War Memorials stand. He
was unhappy to report that there are those in government who are trying to have these things
removed permanently and they could even have an impact on gravesites. He impressed upon the
group the words "Always tell truth & know what you're talking about." "The Civil War was not
about slavery, slavery was going away" whether the war happened or not. "The Civil War was
about money", and there are a lot of people who do not know their history.
Doug Dawson, Florida Division Commander was also present at the dinner. He asked the
members to spread the word about the Sons of Confederate Veterans and ask others to join. He also
asked the members to have the strength and courage to correct those who misrepresent their group.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans have asked some individuals not to renew their membership who
have not represented themselves and the group appropriately. As for those who were under the
impression that this is an all white group he reminds them that their group has black members
including Mr. Nelson Winbush whose grandfather fought in the. Civil War.
Commander Clement Lindsey of the John Hance O'Stewn Camp 770 thanks his Co-Host
Commanders Fred Donaldson of the Madison Starke Perry Camp 1424 and Joe Sparacino of the
Dixie Defenders Camp 2086 in Fanning Springs for their support in putting on this 2nd Annual
Dinner. He also wanted to thank the many members for joining them in fellowship and
remembrance. The Commanders hope everyone will take the time to remember their true history
and their heritage no matter what the time.

their marriage
on Monday, December 26th
two thousand and five
Vero Beach, Florida


The Lord willing, on January 28, 2006 we, Lural and Corine
Farnell, will have our 50t' Wedding Anniversary. Lural is the
oldest son of Johnie and MaeDell Farnell. Corine is the youngest
daughter of Henry and Bertie Cannon. Our parents are deceased.
We lived in Cross City for about 7 years, and then moved to Perry,
Florida to be close to Lural's job.
We have two sons, Gary and Bennie, two granddaughters,
Christy and Nikki, one grandson, Shane and one great-grandson
Tommy. Christy graduated from high school, attended SFCC two
years, transferred to UF and is studying towards her Masters
Degree. Nikki graduates this year and will enter SFCC this fall.
Shane is in the 7th grade and doing extremely well and little
Tommy is only 3.
We moved back to Cross City the first of 92. On Saturday,
January 28th we expect to visit with our sons and their families in
Perry. The top photo was taken at our wedding in January 1956.



This side of 60... By Marie Snider
Can You Answer This Riddle?
Do you know the name of the famous American who had only
two years of schooling and later was awarded an honorary degree
of Doctor of Law?
Who began reading the ancient Greek philosopher Plutarch at
age 11. Then at age 12, when Blackbeard was captured, wrote a
ballad for the occasion. And at age 83 wrote an anti-slavery
treatise?
Who invented the lighting rod and founded the first American
fire insurance company?
The man you have to thank if you see clearly through your
bifocal glasses.
The man who wrote, "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a
man healthy, wealthy and wise."
Who was an inventor, philosopher, writer, politician of such
fame and popularity that there were 20,000 mourners at the time
of his death.
If you haven't guessed by now, his name was Benjamin
Franklin.
Franklin was born January 17, 1706, exactly 300 years ago
this January. Ben was the tenth child of 17. His father wanted him
to be a clergyman, but could only afford to pay for two years of
school. So young Ben became an apprentice in his brother's print
shop. This turned out to be a perfect fit.
Ben soon had his own print shop and at age 26 he began
publishing "Poor Richard's Almanack." It sold so well that when
his brother died leaving his wife without any means of supporting
herself, Ben sent 500 copies of his Almanack so his sister-in-law
could make money by selling them.
For 25 years he published "Poor Richard's Almanack,"
creating hundreds of witty and wise sayings we still remember
today.
"A penny saved is a penny earned." "God helps them that help
themselves." And "he that falls in love with himself will have no
rivals."
After 300 years, almost everyone still knows Ben Franklin's
name and respects him.
I'm not quite sure why, but it may be because of what Franklin
himself once wrote, "If you would not be forgotten/As soon as
you are dead and rotten/Either write things worth reading/Or do
things worth the writing."
He surely did both.
Franklin said he wished he had been born a century later. He
was a man ahead of his time. But since he couldn't change what
era he lived in, he acted to help shape the future he longed for.
He, was the first person to study electricity and lightning and
invented the lightning rod. And he was the first person to study
the movement of the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic Ocean.
An early environmentalist, he protested the pollution from
slaughter houses.
When Franklin saw a need, he filled it. As a result, in addition
to his myriad inventions, he pushed for daylight saving time,
helped establish the two-house Congress that provides
representation to both large and small states and set up the first
Dead-Mail Office. ,
Franklin was an innovator his whole life,
At age 81, he was the oldest delegate in attendance at the
Constitutional Convention. And at age 83, he was president of the
Society for Promoting the Abolution of Slavery.
Perhaps the greatest legacy Ben Franklin left us was a lesson
in how to live fully throughout our lives: Stay actively involved in
the present, but always with a goal of creating a better future.

Do You Hate You
Mornings


r


ers i
d at Morn gs?
a. Do you hate your mornings? Do you wake up
t in a bad mood? Do you feel like you got up on the wrong side of the bed?
r Your mornings do not have to be like this. All it takes is a little thought to
change the CHAOS you have been living in.
That little thought is as simple as knowing what clothes you are
wearing when you get up. If you will think about your morning before
you actually have to face it; your mornings will run smoother. It all starts
ons with a little before bed routine.
ver, Half the battle with your morning has to do with you not being
prepared to start your day. You run around in a tizzy trying to do all those
not last minute things you procrastinated about the night before. Here is what
the happens when we put something off. Let's start with our before bed
om routines.
od) 1. We go to bed at 1:00 or 2:00 am and have to get up at 7:00 am. We
procrastinated by not going to bed at a decent hour. Then we can't get up
as on time.
1, 2. After you hit the snooze button a few times and it is 7:30 am and to
ixie get to work on time we have to leave at 7:45 am. Now you have 15
minutes to get dressed and out the door and you have no clean clothes.
one 3. Not only did you go to bed late, but you did not lay out your clothes
arty for tomorrow. So there again you have procrastinated and you are rushing
ace around.
hall 4. Now you are feeling the time crunch and the pressure of being late
and to work or an appointment again. Then the guilt starts to pile on.
tter 5. With the guilt comes blaming others and not looking at what our
tion
e of role was in our perpetual tardiness. Then we have martyrdom and the
loud yelling voices that just add to the stress along with the guilt.
6. Now we are half dressed, jumping in a car trying to put on makeup
all while driving and not paying attention to what we are doing. Not to
ard mention that you have skipped breakfast and there is not even time for a
quick drive through the golden arches. Well that could be the only
are positive thing about rushing; not time for negative nutrition with fast
e of food.
tion 7. Next thing we know the blue lights are flashing in our rearview
iue, mirror and we have yet another speeding ticket to have to explain and
esspay for.
8. That is, if we are lucky and we haven't had a car accident with our
e to babies in the car.
ove 9. More money wasted all because we procrastinated and didn't go to
id a bed in a decent hour to get up and start our day on the right foot instead
such of behind the eight ball.
ad a Just writing this makes me nauseated. I could not live this way
and anymore. The constant surge of adrenaline is hard on our bodies. We have
be to find a way to relieve the stress that our procrastination causes in our
lives. Are you listening to me! Procrastination can kill us and maim our
5 children. It can be a slow painful death of our bodies turning on us
because of the constant surge of adrenalin with immune dysfunction or it
can be a quick one with a car accident. You have a choice to stop this
right now!
If I can ever get you to make peace with your mornings by establishing
n of
the a few simple habits in your life; you will never go back to living this way.
unty The calmness of the mornings will start you out on a firm and steady
9:00 pace for your whole day.
the Before you go to bed:
