Politics and the demise of good taste
Several exhibitions of bad taste by people who should know
better have occurred in just over two weeks, one of the more recent
being the behavior of certain individuals at the funeral of Coretta
Scott King, widow of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It would certainly seem inappropriate that the Reverend Joseph
Lowery used the funeral of a friend's widow to take some political
cheap shots. Not to suggest that Rev. Lowery eulogized Mrs. King
with a political agenda in mind, however his views on the Iraq war
were not only a simplistic recitation of partisan talking points, they
were irrelevant to the occasion and in the poorest possible taste.
Likewise, remarks made by former President Jimmy Carter,
who seized upon the occasion to criticize the present occupant of
the White House, ,George W. Bush, who was also on hand. Inci-
t dentally, Bush delivered a speech honoring Mrs. King, rather than
calling attention to the mess Jimmy Carter made of his four years I
Sin office.
i Just last Sunday, while doing a little free-lance diplomacy in
; Saudi Arabia, former Vice-President Al Gore addressed a large
Saudi audience and used the occasion to state that, following 9/11,
Arabs were indiscriminately rounded up and held in "unforgivable
conditions," adding that our country shouldn't be talking about
Energy independence-which happened to be one of the key object-
Sives outlined in President Bush's State of the Union address.
Don't they have an unemployment office in Tennessee, Al?
On Sunday, February 5th, football fans were privileged to enjoy
Superbowl XL, or at least we enjoyed the game itself. As for the
National Anthem, it doesn't always get done properly at such
Events, but I must say I have never heard a more mangled rendition
of the "Star Spangled Banner" than that performed by Aretha
Franklin and Aaron Neville. The object is to honor our country and
it's flag, not to show off the singers' questionable interpretive
-talents.
S Ifyou want to know how to perform the National Anthem, try
watching the opening ceremonies at a NASCAR event, or for that
matter, even a local high school football game.
And the halftime show wasn't any better. The network elected
Sto use a 5 second'delay, as they were concerned about a repeat of
Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" at the halftime show two
years ago. Turned out it was just as well they did, as the geriatric
rock group remembered as the "Rolling Stones" managed to get a
S.few "inappropriate" words into their presentation. (Well, at least
they kept their clothes on.)
Whatever we do, let us not forget Cindy Sheehan's pre-telecast
appearance at the President's annual State of the Union address.
Z She came in and took off her jacket, beneath which she was
wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with an anti-war slogan. She was
asked to cover the shirt, but she refused and was subsequently
removed from the premises and arrested for creating a disturbance.
: Let's face it, if the network cameras had caught her wearing
that T-shirt, they'd have made it her show. Cindy knew that, and so
did US Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), who arranged to get
Cindy into the auditorium. We expect that kind of behavior out of
4 Cindy Sheehan, but a member of Congress should know better.
1 4 Media liberals are all atwitter about "freedom of speech," and
:- granted, it's all right to criticize the president or any other public
official, and no one is forbidden to make a parody of the National
Anthem (same priority as burning an American flag); but there is a
: time and place for everything.
^ :A funeral is definitely not the appropriate occasion for airing
; self-serving political rants, a nationally-telecast football game is
" not a suitable forum for a performance by people who don't know
E how to sing the "Star Spangled Banner" (or simply don't care), and
a dusty Texas roadway is a more appropriate venue for an anti-war
; protest than the President's State of the Union address.

to the


highest bidder in order to
recover delinquent property
taxes. A deputy clerk
employed by the Clerk of
the Circuit Court conducts
the sale in accordance with
the Florida Statutes.

Tax deed sales are held on
the steps of the courthouse.

Tax deed sales will be


advertised in a local paper.
The Clerk of Circuit Court
is required by Florida
Statutes to advertise each
sale once a week for four
consecutive weeks prior to
the public auction.

The opening bid on each
property to be sold is
determined by adding
together the sum of all the
outstanding tax certificates,
delinquent taxed paid, fees,
costs of the sale and
interest, all as specified in
the Florida Statutes. The
opening bid is usually
determined approximately
ten days to two weeks prior
to the sale date. As soon as
it is available, it is posted to
the List of Upcoming Tax
Deed Sales in the recording
department of the Clerk of
Circuit Court.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2006


"ALLEN"
Continued from front page

Office into the' computer age and keeping up with state mandates that has doubled the duties of the
office.
The reception proved to be quite the tribute to a man who was described time and again as.
"dedicated", "caring" and "a hard worker".
Judges from around the Third Circuit came to help honor Allen. Judges Fred Koberlein, William
Slaughter and R.B. Davis, took the time to stop by prior to the reception to give their personal
congratulations. Judges Paul Bryan, Vernon Douglas, John Peach, Julian Collins, Tom Coleman,
Lily Johnson and James Roy Bean attended the reception. Later Judge Julian Collins would speak on
behalf of his colleagues and himself. Collins spoke about Allen's integrity and leadership and
thanked him for his service extended to each of them through the years.
Also in attendance were six clerks from surrounding counties. Ken Kent spoke about Allen and
what a "gentleman" he had always been. He personally had looked up to him and the way he served
the people of Dixie and the Clerk's Association. Allen was presented with a plaque from the 66
clerks in the Association.
The Dixie County Board of County Commissioners also presented Allen with a plaque which
had the resolution they passed on Allen's service to the county inscribed on it. After it was read,
Allen received one of several "standing ovations."
On a sentimental note, Allen accepted a card from his former employees, which expressed their
feelings about a man they not only called their "boss", but friend as well. Many would take the
opportunity to speak about his kind, gentle and caring manner in which he ran his office.
Chad Reed, Clerk Ad Interim, spoke about how he has been able to see first hand the work Allen
has performed over the years and commended him on his staff, which he (Allen) had instilled the
same work ethics he followed. "I have some mighty big shoes to fill," added Reed. "We look
forward to moving the Clerk's Office in a progressive way and continue to put the citizens and
customers' needs' first."
Mary Chiles from Senator Bill Nelson's Office read a letter of congratulations from the Senator
and his wife.

Jerry Scarborough from the Suwannee River Water Management District reminded us of how
dedicated a family man Allen is. "I don't know of anyone who has loved his parents more,"
Scarborough stated. Allen took care of his father', Leon Allen, before his death several years ago and
continues to take care of his mother today.
Several others spoke about Allen and their longtime friendships and working relationship with a
man they admire.
Allen, who was visibly moved by the attention and affection said, "I have been blessed in more
ways than one." "I have always had my family and the support of the community over the years
which have helped me," he stated. "I am very thankful for my employees too, I couldn't have done
it without them," he added.
The room came to their feet and gave out a hardy applause for a man who has made his mark and
who will truly, be missed.

Disaster Survival House Primed For "Hazardous

Weather Awareness Week"

February 12 18, 2006


While Floridians are focused
on preparing and planning for
another busy hurricane season
which begins June 1I", it is
imperative not to overlook
other weather hazards that
affect Florida --- lightning,
flooding, tornadoes,
thunderstorms, waterspouts,
rip-currents, extreme
temperatures, and even.
wildfires to name a few.
Weather hazards are
unpredictable and a fact of life,
and being aware and prepared
is the key to keeping you and
your family safe. As we
approach. "Hazardous Weather
Awareness Week," February
12 -18, 2006, the Disaster
Survival House, located in
Deerfield Beach, is geared up
to educate and inform
residents and visitors about all
types of hazardous weather.
The Disaster Survival
House is owned by the City of
Deerfield Beach and in
partnership with National
Safety Council South Florida
Chapter, Broward Sheriffs
Office, Florida Atlantic
University, Florida
International University and
the International Hurricane
Research Center, National
Hurricane Center, American
Red Cross, National Weather
Service, Florida's Division of
Emergency 'Management and
local Emergency Management.
"We all know Florida is
the hurricane capital of the
country, but Florida is also the
thunderstorm and lightning
capital of the United States,"
says Erik Salna, meteorologist
and project coordinator for the


Marsh Mallow is a plant
that grows in meadows and
marshes of eastern Europe.
It is now grown in the U.S.
During famines, people
have eaten its roots. The
root was once used as an
ingredient in the candy
called marshmallow.


Disaster Survival House.
"Florida also ranks third in the
nation for tornadoes, and
number one for waterspouts.
Now is the time to review your
severe weather disaster plan:
Where will you and your
family go when severe weather
threatens? Have you
designated a Safe Room in
your home and have a battery-
operated NOAA Weather
Radio to stay informed?
Schools, businesses, and
families all need to have a plan
to protect life and property."
The Disaster Survival
House, formerly the State
Farm Good Neighbor House,
is a 3,300 sq. ft., 3-bedroom
home built in 1999 with more
than 100 safety features and
fortified to withstand Florida's
natural disasters, including
hurricanes. The Disaster
Survival House has since been
remodeled into a state-of-the-
. art learning and information
center providing personal tours
for children, families, seniors,
students and businesses.
Construction and design
techniques are featured,
including hazardous weather
and disaster education, safety
and preparedness planning and
informative displays and
demonstrations.
Ceiling and wall
cutaways reveal construction
and fortification for safety and
property protection. Visitors
can view electrical surge
protectors in the house and an
interconnected smoke
detection system for fire
prevention; lightning
protection system to reduce


lightning strike effects,
residential fire sprinkler
system to quickly diffuse fire,
insulated attic ventilation
baffles to reduce water damage
from heavy rainfall of
thunderstorms, concrete roof
tiles and garage door
reinforcements for protection
from high winds, and more.
The Disaster Survival
House's extensive hurricane
prevention displays and
demonstrations include a
hurricane laboratory with a
weather center, examples of
window protection and wind
tunnel
demonstrations. Hurricane
forecasting, tracking, flooding,
storm surge, tornadoes,
waterspouts, heat safety,
lightning, surge protection,
generator safety, safe room
and preparedness planning are
covered in a new educational
tour. Weather safety programs
like "Turn Around Don't
Drown", "Break the Grip of
the Rip" and the "30-30 Rule"
for lightning are featured. In
addition, the National Safety
Council teaches life-savinig
family safety in the home and
Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT)
training classes are, also
regularly scheduled.
Disaster Survival House is
located at 1345 FAU Research
Park Blvd. in Deerfield Beach,
is open to the public Monday
through Friday, 8 AM 4 PM.
Admission is free. For more

The Da\ of the Lord
he Da) of the Lord is not Saturday or Sunday or any calendar day of the
"eek. but a people. God's Army. James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the
'word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. God is
bringing forth a new day, (a people) the dayspring, a light that is just in the
- .dawning, 2 Cor. 4: 6 &&. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of
darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory
:ofGod in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that
'the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
God who has shined forth out of darkness has placed into our hearts an
'illumination ray. Proverbs 4:18 But the path of the just is as shining'light that
ishineth brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. What is the perfect day? Oh, the
'perfect ,day is when we all get to heaven! No. No, that is not the perfect day at all.
iThe ,word perfect is a Hebrew word Kun. which means to be. prepared or
established. It has benn translated"very few times as perfect, but many times as
prepared or established. Let's put it this way: the path of the just is as a little
morningg light, a little ray that grows brighter and brighter unto the day it is fully
.prepared and established as one of God's great illuminations. You, as a little ray of
'light are to grow brighter until the day God established you in your right place, for
God is the placer of all his stars. He is causing the dayspring (early dawn) to know
!hi.s place. One can't fill his place until he knows where it is. The just is becoming
,prepared or established. How frail the light is when God first lights our candle. But
'remember he is not only the light that lighteth every man that cometh into the
world, but 'he is the source of light that shines in the darkness-and darkness
:comprehend it not, so this becomes another depth of meaning.
Psalms' 118:24 This is the day which the Lord.hath made; we will rejoice and
be glad in it. He is not talking about Sunday, no not at all Gen. 1:5 God called the
;flight day. This people (God's army) is becoming an illumination (spirit).God's light
(givers, the day which the Lord has made; his people who have become the Day,
'God's illumination.,
The old testament speaks Of "in that day" God will do so and we looked at it as'
ia time element. Now we see the Day t6 be a people, God's very own timepiece.
This (Day People) is becoming identified with the 1 am.that I amn. This people is
'really becoming the day of the Lord and the day of the Lord will not really come to
,it's noon day light (brightness) until this people have become.
i There are many things that will happen in the day of the Lord, but they can
only happen in the day of the Lord, God's army. '
S.You will have to have ihe 'iidcImi of God before you can go on'into the
'purpose ofGod.
S 1 Corinthians 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the minister of Christ, and
Stewards of the mysterious God.
God wants to abound into us the fullness of times that we become the day of
I the Lord. .
in any day, naturally speaking, there are moments, minutes, hours; anid God's
people will become God's timepiece for He has abounded into them the wisdom of
;His purpose
-Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen..In the day of the Lord
many aire called but all will not be chosen. Why? They could not hear well enough.
Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the
Churches; To him.that overcometh will .I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in

Those ,ho Jre nol ~ioscen are not as ones whoare lost, .ut they arelike'men

New Prospect Baptist News
It was good to have our pastor back Sunday, as he continues to
recover from his recent illness. He was ready to preach, too,
delivering wonderful messages from God's Word. We were also
pleased to have more baby dedications; little Masie Marie
Beckham and little Weston Lord during the morning service, and
little Caden Cothron and little Wyatt Wright during the evening
service. The housewarming for Dwayne and April Kight Sunday
afternoon was most pleasant, too, with a nice turnout of people.
God continues to bless!
Our monthly Fellowship Supper is scheduled for Wednesday
evening, Feb. 15th. Our girls are looking forward to "Girl Talk",
which will be held on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 17th and 18th, at
the Middle Florida Assembly Grounds. Our Associational Music
Festival will also be held on Saturday, Feb. 18th, 6:00 P. M., at Mt.
Nebo.
We're glad to hear that Sister Becky Evans (Sr) is now back
home from the hospital. Please be in prayer for her timely
recovery, as well as the many others on the church prayer lists.
Pray, too, for our people in the armed forces and our President and
other leaders. Have a good week, invite someone to church with
you, and may God bless and keep you.

One quiet day the angels came
An'd took mama far away
But in the stillness of the night
We could almost hear her say

"Dear Children, I will miss you
You mean so much to me
But Jesus called me to His side
In Heaven I will be

A place of God's great beauty
No tears or earthy cares
Only peace and joy forever
And love beyond compare

So remember all the good times
Don't think about the sad
Treasure all the special moments,
Through the year we have had

Abundant Life

& Living
By Lucille Stockton
Abundant life is living life to its
fullest, enjoying God's creation with
overflow, the cup runs over with more
than enough. Health, wealth and
wisdom is in the cup. Love, peace,
joy and happiness is in the cup. And
there is always enough to share and
spare to bless others. When the day is done and you .become quiet and
stilled from all your daily routine; always use time to ask yourself, what
did I do today to enhance someone's life? Did I share a loving vibe, or a
cheerful smile or speak a kind word to a weary soul?
There are many ways to give of yourself, and it will enhance your life as
well. You can sleep, rest and enjoy sweet dreams, because you are so
enriched by your deeds. I will share a precious poem I have kept for many
years. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
THE GIVE OF GIVING
The more you give, the more you get,
The more you laugh, the less you fret.
The more you do unselfishly,
The more you live abundantly.
The more of everything you share.
The more you always have to spare.
The more you love, the more you will find,
That life is good and friends are kind.
For only what we give away,
Enriches us from day to day.

Buddy Martin's

Say it ain't so,


Gretzky
Some of us just don't get it. What we perceive .'.
as harmless, recreational wagering on sports is now '
reaching epidemic proportions. j
Office pools and a $5 bet with your neighbor seem :.. '
benign and harmless on the face, as does an occasional
trip to Las Vegas. The message we are sending,
however, is that gambling isn't addictive like saying
smoking won't kill you. It will. of course. Even
second-hand smoke.
The 16sson learned last week is that second-
hand gambling may also be harmful to your health,
reputation and career.
There is something very wrong with us when we're
spending idle time ripping on Super Bowl officials for perceived
blown calls and implying that they must have bet on the Steelers
to win when what we all should be doing is exhorting the evils of
gambling before it implicates our athletic heroes.
It deeply saddens us all that a squeaky-clean icon such as
Wayne Gretzky, the face of hockey, would be linked to a gambling
scandal. Even if he didn't place bets, he obviously knew
something about the illegal ring fronted by his assistant coach
Rick Tocchet,'who booked the high-roller bets of his wife, Janet
Jones Gretzky.
At first we were all. in denial including Gretzky, who told
the public and the media he knew nothing about it. Except that he
was caught on a wiretap pleading with Tocchet not to implicate
his wife. Those wire taps have a way of revealing secrets.
So we now must apply logic. If Gretzky did know and he
did butlied about it, why should we believe him when he says "I
don't bet on sports"?
Too many athletes before him have breached our trust.
Pete Rose. O.J. Simpson. Kobe Bryant, Maurice Clarett the list
goes on.
A man like Gretzky deserves an even break, however,
given his pristine reputation, generosity as an athlete and
ambassadorship of the game.
Call me naive, but I'm going to cut Gretzky some slack on
, this one until I learn differently. He obviously knew about the
gambling, but was trying to protect his wife after realizing he:
.could no longer save his good friend and assistant coach, Tocchet.
Wayne. Gretzky could fire a slap shot from the blue line
that would kill a gnat on the left cheek of the goalie's mask. Let's
hope he is shooting equally as straight on this matter.

Cole Captivates Audiences
Appearing at the Alfonso Levy Performing Arts Center on
Friday, February 24,.at 7:30 p.m., masterful vocalist and pianist,
Freddy Cole will captivate listeners with his elegant presence,
subtle phrasing, and intimate singing style.
Sf This is the fifth event in Lake City Community College
S_ Lyceum Series sponsored by First Federal Savings Bank of
^^ ^LFlorida.
S1 Although he has been charming audiences in the states and
abroad for over 40 years, Freddy did not find wider acclaim until
M the 1990s.
, Having a family member already in the limelight has its mixed
blessings. For much of his career, Freddy was overshadowed by
the larger-than-life persona and legendary career of his brother Nat
King Cole. He had to struggle to find his own niche in the jazz
world.
Dinner will be served at the Lobo Caf6 at 6 p.m. before the
performance. Dinner will be roast beef or ,chicken marsala,
broccoli, red jacket potatoes, assorted breads, dessert and beverage.
Cost is $8 including tax.
Tickets for the show are, $14-general admission, $13 seniors,
J and $12 LCCC studerits and students from other schools. Ticket
information and/or dinner reservations may be made by calling
(386) 754-4340.

DIXIE SCHOOLS PREPARE FOR FCAT


SCHOL BARD EMER


Success in reading can never start too soon. Research
shows that students who -.m
read for 20 minutes each
night will score at the 90"'
percentile...meaning they
score 90% better than other

nationally normed tests!
Therefore, it is not
surprising that. Kindergar- '
ten through fifth graders
have a mandatory school-wide nightly homework assignment:
Read for at least 20 minutes!
These students have a 90-minute Uninterrupted reading
block during each morning using the scientifically researched
based Harcourt Trophies Reading Curriculum.
We have two Reading Coaches who provide materials,
training, and the latest research information to our teachers.
rem Remediation is
another key to success in
reading. Our school
provides four different
opportunities for students to
participate in remediation.
SFirst, students may be
provided in-school remed-
iation with the child's
current teacher or resource
teachers. Second, we have
been able to offer after school reading remediation for grades 2-5
taught by four different teachers. This program has been provided
by Dixie District Schools. Third, we have an after school
remediation program provided by Title One funding. Last, some
of our 3rd grade students are participating in our School-Within-A-
Scho61 class.
In order to make reading fun. and exciting, we have
expande&dOpportunities beyond'the classroom. Every Monday
-night from 5-7 pm, students and parents are encouraged to come
to the Media Center and/or computer lab. Students can work on
earning those, valuable AR points to earn prizes (with a grand
prize of a year-end trip) and/or work on computer software in the
subject area of their choice. It's a great and fun way to work on
academic skills with a parent.
AES has paired up with RRMS to provide a Buddy-
Reading System. RRMS students walk over to our campus to
spend time reading with their AES buddies. The result?
Everyone's reading improves!
All of these
programs help strengthen
our students' skills for
FCAT. But we feel our
students should be
rewarded for their efforts.
Therefore, incentives are in of ..
place,, to. ,encourage..our
.students to do .itheir. ev\
best. :








As the countdown -to the 2006 FCAT draws to a close,
students, faculty and staff
at Old Town Elementary "
School are continuing
their efforts in pursuit of, "g e
repeating their School.
Grade of "A". Since the
start of the 2005-06 school
term, OTES has concen-
trated on teaching the
skills and standards as
outlined by the Sunshine O
State Standards. Students are following the curriculum that
includes teaching, progress monitoring, data evaluation,
remediation and review. Students who are not where they should
be are .given additional Intensive Immediate Instruction. The
philosophy at Old Town is not to "teach to the test" but to teach
the curriculum prescribed by the Department of Education,'to help.
our students become life-long learners.
Some of the activities and programs We have used in
preparing our students include: Think Link Testing,' a
I I,,-- ... testing program that
evaluates student. progress
toward meeting grade level
and Sunshine State'
Standards. The DIBELS

and third grade students. Fourth and Fifth grade ESE students
have computer assisted instruction through such programs as
Reading Coach and lhcredible Tutor. Leveled reading groups, and
Classroom libraries are in use in all grade levels.
To help prepare our teachers in teaching the Florida,
Sunshine State Standards.
OTES has offered several a _
in-service activities. Some
of these include, Writers in


Conlitrol by Professional '-.
Development Associates, b
Higher Order Tffinking
Skills Training, and
Curriculum Mapping
Activities." Grade level
meetings with the teachers, .
reading. coaches and principal are held on regular basis to'.
facilitate student progress questions.
The students, staff and 'administration are working together
to make sure that your children receive the quality education they
deserve.


School Board members are continually looking for educational
opportunities that will help our students achieve success in school.
They invite citizens to stop by any Dixie County School to pick
up a copy of the released FCAT tests, Grades 4, 8, and 10.


Dennis W. Bennett, Superintendent

Starting February .27' our district
V,. will be administering the FCAT.
'. This is the state assessment test that

have made .in meeting the
.,, requirements set forth in the
1,11 Sunshine State Standards. This year
our schools are using many
innovative strategies to help students
_ha perform well on the FCAT. Our staff
A "j ,. started the year very focused on
3 achieving their goal of meeting and
exceeding the standards measured by the FCAT and have
maintained that focus.
.To find out how your child is progressing toward mastery
of FCAT, please contact your school. You may also ask for a
copy of the practice test so you can see first hand the challenge of
passing this most challenging test.
For your student to be at-their best during the time FCAT
is administered (February 27 through March 9), here are a few
important suggestions:
Be sure your child gets eight hours of rest each night.,
Breakfast is important. Be sure your child does not come to
school with an empty stomach.
See that your child's clothes and school supplies are
prepared and organized the night before the child leaves for
school the next day.
Do not schedule social events that will distract your child's
attention from studying during FCAT administration.
Take time to explain to your children that FCAT is a state
standards test that must be passed in order to escape having
to go to remediation classes and allows you to get a standard
diploma, which will affect future opportunities in career
placement.
Encourage your children to do their best on FCAT. More
and more students are having success on FCAT and your
child can also.
This article will showcase the many innovative strategies
and techniques, programs and technology that each school has
employed to help students improve and pass the FCAT. If you
have any questions, please contact your local school so that we
can work together in making this years FCAT experience a
successful one for your child.


Garry Durham, Director of Curriculum

\'e lia\e really worked hard this year to prepare for FCAT
testing. All schools began their focus in August. All principals
met and established school FCAT goals to maintain or increase
student performance: Strategies ,. ,,,;..
were put in place to achieve '
these goals. One critical strategy .
'was to "map" the curriculum so .
that Sunshine State. Standards
were'taught sufficiently and. in a
time manner. All. teachers
were trained on. curriculum ".-:" "
mapping and they developed a "map" for their classroom. The
month of February has been designated a review of all previously,
taught skills that will be tested on FCAT. We have also
encouraged students to set personal FCAT goals based on last
year's test scores and Ipursue improvement in both reading and
math. We feel that with the united effort of administrators,
teachers, students, and parents, our student performance can only
be positive and encouraging.


Reading Remediation is key to success in Reading. Ruth
.. Rains Middle School i''"
providing several"
-- opportunities for student.
participation in this area.
The remediation programs'
are data driven.
RRMS has three 2
period Reading blocks to
help struggling readers as-,
determined by FCAT-
scores. The main curriculum used in these classes is the Read 180
program. This program includes small group instruction,
technology, and audio/silent reading.
Another scientifically research based Reading remediation
program used at RRMS is SRA. This program has been around
for years and has proven to be successful for students with
decoding problems. SRA is also used in two 2-hour blocks during
our schedule.
All students scoring
Level I or 2 on FCAT in "
the previous year has a
Reading class in addition .
to their Language Arts
class. Level 1 math
students have a semester
of math remediation in
lieu of P.E. or the
enrichment wheel.
RRMS provides an
after school remediation program funded by Title I. School
within a school is another remediation opportunity for our
struggling readers.
To help encourage our students to read, we extensively use
the AR program in Language Arts and Reading classes. Prizes,
including a trip, are awarded for points and the program is used
for grading purposes as well.
8'1 graders are afforded the opportunity for extra help in
FCAT writing through a "Tutoring Night".
7th and 8t' graders go to Anderson Elementary School for
"Buddy Reading". This has
proven to be an exciting,
motivational tool foi our
students.
-- aptWe also have a new
Slaptopcomputer program
.o called "Odyssey". The
laptops are used extensively
in our Math and Reading
remediation classes.
RRMS has a Reading
Coach to monitor our Reading Classes and testing programs.
Students are working 2 days a week during Enrichment
Wheel classes on FCAT Explorer. This program may also be
used at home via Internet. Passwords werd sent home on out-
school calendars.
Students are given ample opportunities to build skill in areas;
previously diagnosed as weak. These efforts combined with the;
concerned support of parents, will surely bring the desired result
of higher FCAT scores.







FCAT, particularly at the high school level, is a difficult test!'
Parents, I urge you to get a copy of the test and sit down and take.;
it like a test yourself. Then
check your answers at the
back of the copy we have for
Syou. You don't have to tell
"anyone how you scored if
you didn't pass it, but you
will know what we are
-_ expecting our young people
*." 3to do today in public T
schools!
Transition to 9th grades
has always been a challenge for students. FCAT is tested at theta
9th andl0Oth 'grade levels in high school and of course, the 10th,'
grade test must be passed for a student to graduate. If a student is"
on grade level in reading and successfully completes Algebra I in"
9t grade and Geometry in 10"' grade, the student should have no.
problem passing the FCAT. The 10th grade FCAT reading tested
really is written on the 10th grade level!
We fully believe
that our students are very ,,.,. ',, ..ir
capable and can be
successful on each of
these tests. The skills to
pass these 'tests are being
taught .each day in our ..
schools for every grade
level. It is imperative < .,
that your students)
attend school every day '"" ."'
so that they do not fall behind For the strug2lng reader, it j'
imperative to be there ever da\ and 10 be e\tremel\ diligent (n
doing all assignments. State standards have raised the bar no th,'t
students do not have time for playing around or being apathenc' .,
We are blessed to live in a community where teachers and.
staff really care and want each and every student to be successfl,
We know as parents that you too want your student to make goodf-
grades and pass the FCAT on the first attempt. Please help us t
see that your young person is reading and studying eiery day :
Encourage your child to do his or her best in all that they di:;


Together, we can prepare your student for whatever future drea4t;
he or she has! Encourag-
your student to tal^C

rigorous curriculum that 1

Voss outlined the three main objectives of
the club to aide lobbing for issues important to
the party; hold fundraisers for candidates; and
aggressively seek new members for the
FFRW.
Ellen Sands was sworn in as the Dixie FRW
President, Joy Anderson its' Secretary and Chris
Harmon, Treasurer. Ellen noted that she was
excited about the newly formed club that
promises play an active roll in getting the word
out about the Republican's agenda for our
country and its' candidates through fundraisers.
Ellen extended her personal thanks and that
of the other members to John Friskey, Dixie
County Republican Chairman for his support of
the group and encouragement. With John's pro-
active approach, the 'Florida Federation of
Republican Women felt their rural neighbors
needed a hand and donated $500.00 towards
Dixie headquarters operations.
Frisky thanked Voss and the FFRW for their
interest and support. He added that he felt the
Dixie Republican Party has come a long way in
the last few years and knows that with the
support of folks like the FFRW and Dixie's own
chapter of the club, will continue to grow in
strength and numbers.
Congratulations, ladies.

square paper patterns making a winter theme quilt block. The
ladies attending the workshop had a great time making the block
and were able to successfully complete the block during the
workshop. All in attendance agreed the workshop was a great
success and appreciated Ms. Metts taking time to present the
workshop. Thanks Stephanie for a great job.

Suwannee
Valley Players
Announces Its
Upcoming
Production Of
"THE NERD"
A Comedv In Two Acts
By Larrv Shue
The Story: Now an
aspiring young architect 'in
suburbia. \Villum Cubbert has
often told his friends about the
debt he owes to- Rick
Steadman, a fellow ex-GI
whom he-has never met but
'who saved his life in Vietnam.
He has written to Rick to say
that. as long as he is alive,
"You %%ill hate somebody on
Earth who will do anything for
you" so Willum is delighted
when Rick shows up
unexpectedly at his home on
the night of his 34th birthday
Sparty.. But, his delight soon
fades as it becomes apparent
that Rick is a hopeless
bumbling oaf with no, social
sense, little intelligence, and
less tact. Rick's continued
presence among Willum and
his friends leads to one
uproarious incident after
another, until the normally
placid Willum finds himself
contemplating violence, a dire
development which, happily, is
staved off by the surprising
twist ending of the play.
Performances will be held.
March 3-5, 9-12, 17-19, 2006.
(three consecutive weekends,
with a special 'student/senior
night'" performance on March
