City News
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
In past months the Town of Cross City has sent out letters
and posted notices about the drinking water from the Cross City
Water Treatment Plant, notifying residents that the plant has had
levels of disinfection byproducts above drinking water standards
set by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection
(FDEP). While the levels were higher than what the FDEP
considered acceptable, it has never been deemed an emergency
with residents being asked to boil their water.
According to City Manger, Mike Cassidy, these notices will
continue as required by the FDEP until the city is able to meet
the new requirements for drinking water put in place two years
ago. Cassidy noted some changes to improve conditions at the
plant have been made and they are getting closer, but the city is
continuing studies to determine the most cost effective and best
long-term treatments for the plant. "We seem to have had some
success with granular activated charcoal filters (GAC)," stated
Cassidy. "However, we will continue to meet with engineers and
product design teams until we get it right," said Cassidy. "We
should have a final projection as to the direction we will be
taking in the next 6-8 weeks," he added. Cassidy noted that if
the plan goes forward, the whole process should be completed by
the end of the summer of 2007.
.. The Council knows that this issue can be disturbing to folks
and wants residents to know that they are doing all they can to
make sure that the city's water supply is the safest it can be, but
also wants to make the best businesses decision for the taxpayers.
Cassidy added that the Council appreciates the FDEP's concerns
for safe water.
Cassidy also noted that all research and data provided to the
City stated that medical problems could occur if a person were to
drink 2 liters of water, per day, for 75 years. He added that there
is, really no need for residents to purchase bottled water.
"We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding with

injuries sustained when his
motorcycle fell over and
skidded into the truck.
According to a report filed
by Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Glen A. Ganus,
Steven Bontrager, 44, of Old
Town was making a left turn
from CR 317 into the north
lanes of US 19 when he pulled
out in front of Maudlin who


was traveling south on US 19.
Maudlin was unable to change
lanes in time and skidded
several feet before his bike fell
and then collided with the left
side of the Bontrager's truck.
Both the truck and motorcycle
spun around several time;
stopping facing a
northwesterly direction.
The Dixie County EMS
arrived at the scene and
transported Mauldin to the
Gainesville hospital.
Bontrager was treated at the
scene and found not to have
received any injuries.
Damage to the 1984 Ford
pickup was estimated at
$3,000.00. Damage to
Mauldin's 1996 Harley
Davidson motorcycle was

History On The Move


Hunt Brother house-movers take the old Griner home from its original property on CR 351 to its' new land
off El Rancho Road. The trip was slow and tedious as they had to maneuver electrical wires and traffic.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last week the old "Griner Home" was removed from its original foundation and moved to a new
location where it will continue to make memories for its new family, Steven & Jennifer Petty and
their four children. See "HISTORY" page 5

-' Jerry Prater I


Howard Stern faces reality
It must havd been traumatic. Worse, perhaps, even than the day
he found out that there was no Santa Claus. I don't know how old
Howard Stem was when he discovered there was no Santa, but he
-obviously hasn't been too interested in being a good boy since. And
now he has been confronted with yet another emotional ordeal. The
poor dear has discovered that all of his fans haven't followed him
to his new home on satellite radio.
Why? Perhaps it's because there are a lot of people out here in
the real would who don't believe the consumer should have to pay
:to listen to radio. I don't know about you, but I'm one of them. As
'far as that goes, I'm not entirely comfortable with paying for TV,
whether it's cable, satellite, or the additional expense of "pay-per-
- view" that expects you to cough up an extra fifty bucks to watch the
wrestling show.
When the TV industry first expanded beyond standard
.-broadcast outlets, one could pay about $1,500.00 for a satellite dish
big enough to use for a bathtub, but it was a one time expense. At
first. Then the signals started getting scrambled, unauthorized de-
:scramblers surfaced, but before long the big dish owners found
their descramblers being electronically zapped by the outlets
originating these signals, and now those big dishes are about as
useful as a three-legged racehorse.
Howard Stem's problem started a few months back when the
.Federal Communications Commission (FCC) arrived at the
conclusion that some reasonable constraints on the content of
broadcast material was not unreasonable. Unlike the McCain-
Feingold bill, which presumes to regulate the distribution of
-political advertising, the crackdown that nailed Howard Stem
relates to the ratings of foul-mouthed comedians. There is a
discernable difference between political speech and simply talking
Sdirty-though I must admit that there are certain similarities.
To the point, what Howard Stemrn has always done is talk dirty
Sfor the amusement of his audience. And he is having a cow over
:the fact that his move from the public airwaves to pay-per-listen
Satellite radio have not resulted in the ratings to which he had
Become accustomed.
S "It's insulting to me that everyone hasn't come with me. I take
it personally," he whines. "I want to say to my audience...You
haven't come with ne yet? How dare you?"
S Allow me to venture a response to that diatribe: People can hear
this caliber of trash talk in any sleazy saloon for the price of a beer,
so why should they buy a satellite radio and pay a monthly fee to
listen and still have to buy their own beer?
Howard allegedly complained to his psychiatrist that he was
upset because he's only drawing 4 million listeners, when he thinks
he should be getting 20 mil. He seems to think the public owes it to
him to cough up the bucks for satellite radio. He doesn't just have
an ego problem, he is one.
When the FCC started cracking down on routines that were
more appropriate to night clubs than to the public airwaves, a


number of stations dropped Howard Stem rather than pay hefty
fines. And Howard wasn't alone. "Bubba the Love Sponge" got
canned for his trash-talk on a Tampa Bay area station, and the last
I heard, he was running for sheriff. Maybe that looked better than
his prospects for making it big on satellite, but apparently he hasn't
hit the big time in law enforcement, either.
Looks like talk radio is getting to be a tough way to make a
living for Howard and his clones. Oh well, life gets to be like that,
once you find out there ain't no Santa Claus.

Letter To The

Letter
Concerning the "Dec 15,
2005" Board of County
Commissioners Minutes" on
page B7. "Commissioner
Land stated that he did not
want Lester Paulk to build
homes in his District". I
believe that this statement was
out of line. I was at this
meeting and the only thing Mr.
Paulk did was speak for the
landowners in his
neighborhood which is
residential and quiet most of
the time.
I for one do not believe
that any County Commissioner
should have the right to single
out an individual for any
reason they actually are to
represent their entire
District/County. Mr. Land sat
during the entire 2 meetings
that I personally attended in
November 2005 and December
2005 "Relaxed in his chair
(leaning back) with his western
hat in front of him. The only
time I saw him move was to
slam his hand down and say I
won't go along with that as
long as I'm a Commissioner in
my District." Maybe they
were not the exact words but
believe me they are close to
what he said regarding the
Liquor License at "the
Southern Nights Bar".
No County Official has
the right to stop anyone from
making a living in Dixie
County. I for one know that
Lester Paulk builds a fine
home and follows up with the
care and compassion that any
other builder in Dixie County
does. Mr. Land certainly owes
Mr. Paulk an apology.
If anyone who reads this
would like to see the type
Home that Lester Paulk builds
they can come and look at
marine anytime.
Thanks for your Time.

Tips For

Protecting Your

Companion

Animals
Overheating can kill an
animal. Never leave an animal
alone in a vehicle, since even
with the windows open, a
parked car, truck or van can
quickly become a furnace.
Parking in shade offers little
protection as the sun shifts
during the day. When
traveling, carry a gallon
thermos filled with fresh cold
water.
Always provide plenty of
shade for an animal staying
outside. A properly
constructed doghouse serves
best. Bring your dog inside
during the hot time of the day
and let it rest in a cool part of
the house. Provide plenty of
cool water. Keep cats indoors.

Arts & Crafts at the Library
Three Rivers Regional Library System and the Dixie County
Public Library are pleased to present a crafting series by Pat
Brown and Becky Miller. With over 50 years experience in the
Arts and Crafts field, Pat is the former owner and operator of a
craft store in Tampa which ran over 25 classes per month. She also
owned and operated Rose Productions, which was formed to
promote the craft store and included a TV program, craft shows
and a monthly craft newsletter. After closing the store, Pat moved
to the Virgin Islands where she created an Arts and Crafts based
summer day camp for kids, which became a year round child care
program.
We are just thrilled that Pat and Becky have volunteered their
services to this community. Their Make-and-Take craft workshops
will be held 'on the first Wednesday of each month from 1:00 -
3:00 p.m. at the Dixie County Public Library and are free and open
to the public. The first class will teach Jewelry Making and Repair
and will cover techniques and tips for designing and making your
own jewelry. Each participant can choose to make earrings, a
necklace or a bracelet to take home. Participants are also
encouraged to bring in an old piece of costume jewelry in need of
repair, since this will be covered in class as well. For more
information or to register for the class, please call the library at
498-1219.

"HISTORY"
Continued from page 1


According to Dudley Griner, son of K.
Griner and Mamie Smith Griner, the "Griner
Home" was actually first occupied by Joe Ruth
and his family. Ruth was the owner of a dry-
goods store here in Cross City. Later his son,
Jimmy, would run what we all remember as the
Quality Store, located in the Dixie Plaza.
The home was built during the height of the
lumber era, 1920's, about the same time that the
Putnam Company began building homes for
their workers. It originally had just two
bedrooms, a small kitchen and bathroom. For
it's time, it was known as one of the fancier
homes around. In fact, the area which it was
built, next to Drummonds Bank, was known as
the "rich section" of town.
When the Griners bought the home in 1931,
Dudley Griner was a very young boy. Over the
years the family would add on to the home. "I
have many wonderful memories of that old
house," stated Dudley.
Dudley's father bought the first Chevrolet
car dealership from Fred Parker in 1939. He
would later build the Griner Chevrolet building
that still stands at the corner of Barber Ave. and
US 19, now Dixie Chevrolet. He also served in
the Florida State House of Representatives for
two terms and the Senate for one term. Dudley
would carry on the family dealership after his
father's death in 1963 until he retired, passing it
on to his son Ken. Dudley however continued
working as lobbyist for many years after
handing the dealership over to Ken.


Throughout Ihe years Mamie Griner would
continue to live in the house where she and her
husband raised Dudley and his sister, Carolyn
until her death in 1989.
Penni McGill was the last owner of the
home, selling it to Mr. Larry Lashley recently.
Lashley's plan for the property doesn't include
the house. He will most likely be building a
commercial building on the old site. Not
wanting to tear down the historical home,
Lashley gave the home to the Pettys.
"We are so excited," stated Jennifer. "Since
Steven has begun to tear it down to the skeleton,
we can now see the beautiful 12' red cypress
walls and ceilings," she added. The Petty's plan
on keeping the home in it's period style, but will
be adding on three more bedrooms and an
additional bathroom. A wrap-around porch will
also be added.
Steven's family is known for their building
skills and they have enlisted the aide of Uncle
Dwight and Brother Dale. "We hope to be
living in the house in the next two months,"
stated Steven. "I know that seems impossible,
but I really believe we can have it livable by
then," he added.
Other features of the 1920's home are a huge
fireplace with built-in bookcases on either side
of it. It also has an original chandelier that
graced the home for many years.
The Pettys have promised to give us a grand
tour when they complete the renovations. We
look forward to that and wish them many happy
memories in the years to come.

Continued from page 1

this matter and promise to continue to keep the public informed," Cassidy stated.
Cassidy also gave an update on the 4-way stops that were to be in place this past January. He
noted that while the stop signs were up and ready to go, the hold up has been in getting the truck
ioute signs posted on US 19 and CR 351. The signs, which will re-direct truck traffic from the
business district and school zones, are an important part of the city and county's plan to making
those areas safer.
The signs on US 19 are already in place and this week the signs on CR 351 will go in. The final
step will be for Anderson Columbia, Inc. to come and paint the stop bars and roadway messages.
The projected "light-up" date is the middle to the end of April.
On a lighter note, the Town of Cross City recently completed the Cross City Community Park
located behind the Dixie County Courthouse off CR 351. To celebrate the numerous renovations
and additions to the park, the City Council would like to invite the entire community for an Open
House this coming Friday, April 7th beginning at 1:00pm. There is new equipment for all ages to
come out and enjoy. Hope to see you there..

Arrest Made

In Death Of

23 Animals
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced today the
arrest of a Texas man in
connection with the death of
23 donkeys that were trampled
by one another while being
transported to Florida in an
overcrowded livestock trailer.
The animal deaths were
discovered when the driver of
the trailer entered the
department's eastbound 1-75
Interdiction Station in
Suwannee County this
morning. The dead animals
were part of a trailer load of 44
donkeys that were being
delivered to Alachua County.
The driver -- Christopher
D. Youngblood, 30, of Ben
Wheeler, Texas -- was arrested
by Bronson's Office of
Agricultural Law Enforcement
(OALE) and charged with 23
counts of felony animal abuse,
as well as with a separate
count of driving with a
suspended license.
Veterinarians with the
department's Division of
Animal Industry examined the
animals and determined that
the deaths were caused by the
donkeys being transported on
top of each other in an
overcrowded livestock trailer.
Bronson noted that the
Suwannee County Sheriffs
Department assisted in the
investigation.

Florida Youth ChalleNGE

Academy receives $450K Grant
The Florida Youth ChalleNGe Academy (FLYCA) has
received a $450,000 grant from the Department of Juvenile Justice
(DJJ) that will be used to support the voluntary program geared
towards at risk youth.
"The partnership between the DJJ and FLYCA is critical to the
success of our program because state matching funds must be
secured in order to receive our federal funding from the National
Guard Bureau," said Sgt. Maj. (Ret) Danny Brabham, director of
the Academy.
The academy, which teaches academics, leadership skills, self-
esteem and physical fitness, provides a highly disciplined
environment for 16-to-18 year old at-risk youth free from outside
distractions.
Since its inception in 2001, the academy has graduated 1071
cadets. The cost to the state for a cadet at the academy is $14,000;
the cost to incarcerate a juvenile offender is $40,000 annually. It is
estimated the Academy has saved the state more than $26 million
in juvenile incarceration costs.

Big Bend Building & Construction
Trades Council Endorses

Rod Smith for Governor
The Big Bend Building and Construction Trades Council,
representing thousands of members in 17 local unions from 15
North Florida counties, today endorsed Rod Smith for Governor.
"Rod Smith has never wavered in his support for working
Floridians," said Big Bend Building and Construction Trades
Council President David Fowler. "Our endorsement is a testimony
to the faith our members have that, as Governor, Rod Smith will
put the interests of working families before the special interests."
"The members of the Big Bend Building and Construction
Trades Council are important members of the North Florida
economy and community," said Senator Smith. "I value their
support and will continue fighting to make sure their voices are
heard in Tallahassee."
Added Fowler, "Rod Smith is the one candidate who can win
and win big in North Florida, and he's the best chance for working
Floridians to win this November."
Including the Big Bend Building and Construction Trades
Council endorsement, the Rod Smith Campaign has now been
endorsed by unions representing more than 100,000 working
Floridians. Other Key labor recommendations include the Fraternal
Order of Police, Police Benevolent Association, Florida Nurses
Association, International Union of Painters and Allied Trades,
North Florida Building Trades Council, Federation of Physicians
and Dentists (AFSCME Local 1199, an affiliate of the National
Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees), and Orlando

The Word Made

Flesh
God's Sabbath
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say the
.millennium is God's Sabbath of
:all Sabbath.
',- "The fifteenth day of the
seventh month, %hen )e have
gathered in the fruit of the land,'ye
shall keep a east unto the Lord
:seven days: on the first day shall
be a Sabbath and on the eighth day
(shall be a Sabbath" (Lev. 23:39).
The millennium means a thousand
years of Christ reign; it is this new
*age now. In this millennium age
will be the restitution of all things
lst. by the fall of Adam (Acts
3:19-21) (Revelations 21:4)
(Isaiah 11:9) (Jeremiah 31:34).
esus was anointed with the Holy
Spirit, so He is the anointed. The
,word Christ is anointed (1 John
:27).
SWe are the anointed company
(1 Peter. 2:9). The true body of
Christ are the millennium age
(Roman 8:16-17) (2 Timothy
I: I1-12) (Colossians 3:4)
(Matthew 13:43) (Revelations
1'9:7). The body of Christ will
teach the people (Romans 8:19-
22).. All the feasts of the Lord
were observed in connection with
Sabbath days, for they were a time
when Israel (in type) must cease
f ri theit own works (stop doing
their thing) and rest in the work of
Christ.
1i. the son of man, say the
Feast' -of Tabernacles is the real
Feast ofRest of which the others
were but the earnest and foretaste,
lii the first place it was in the
seventh month, even as God
"rested on the seventh day from all
his work".
The first day of the Feast was
onwl the fifteenth, and it was
observed for seven days. The last
day 'of the Feast was therefore the
twenty-one being a triple of seven-
rest in the absolute sense, God's
Rest which "remaineth" for the
people of God. Then the next day
was'.likewise a Sabbath (the eighth
day of the Feast); and though it,
was .connected in some measure
with the Feast, it was not one of
the seven days of their festivities.
It ispoteworthy that as we begin
to read the ordinances of the Feast
in Leviticus 23, God reminds the
sainrits of the Sabbath the weekly
Sabbath "six days shall work be
done; 'but the seventh day is the
Sabbath of rest, a holy
convocation' (Leviticus 23:3).
Then immediately He begins
to g 'e the order of the Feast, and
the .evenfold events involved in
the feasts; 1. The Passover. 2. The
Unleavened Bread. 3. The sheaf of
First fruits. 4. The Feast of
Pentecost. 5. The Blowing of the
Trumpets.: 6. The Day of
Atonement. 7. The Feast of
Tabernacles.
lithe son of man, say and so,
just as tl e'weekly Sabbath was the
end,'of .srael's week of toil and
labor, so the Feast of Tabernacles
is the end'of the Churches week of
strife,,and turmoil, the Feast of all


Faith Baptist Church News
Today was another glorious day in the Lord. The church was
Spirit filled and the services were wonderful. Chris Lord and
Tommy McQueen did the special music in the morning service and
did their usual fine job. Kacie and Anne Crenshaw sang 2 songs in
the evening service and did a good job as well. Bro. Jackie brought
2 excellent messages and in the evening service we had a time of
testimonies. It's always good to hear God's people speak up for
Him and praise Him for the blessings He has sent their way.
Remember the Easter Brothers concert Friday night at 7:00
p.m. They are a great bluegrass gospel group and will truly bless
your hearts. Come early to get a seat, as the crowd is usually large.
There is no admission fee, but a love offering will be taken to help
with their expenses. This group is very personable and will enjoy
meeting and visiting with you.
Easter Sunday we will have our usual dinner in the fellowship
hall with an egg hunt to follow for the young and young at heart.
The eggs will be colored plastic eggs this year and some will have
prizes in them. Come out and enjoy this special time.
Our revival will start on Monday night May 17"' and continue
through Thursday night the 20"'h beginning each evening at 7:00
p.m. Make plans now to attend and hear Bro. Bill Jenkins. He will
bless your heart. Invite a friend or neighbor to come with you.
Someone's salvation could depend on it.
We will be looking forward to seeing you next week on
Wednesday night and again for Sunday school and Church oni
Sunday. We have classes for all ages with excellent teachers for all
of them. Until then, pray for the less fortunate, tell folks what God
has done for you. We at Faith love you and hope to see you again
soon.

New Prospect Baptist News
Our Spring Revival got off to a good start on a beautiful
Sunday morning, as our choir did an admirable job of worshiping
God in song and, with the Spirit's leading. Bro. Donnie Lott
brought a most thought-provoking message from Mark 10:46-52.
Sunday evening brought still more of God's blessings, as our
church quartet did a beautiful job of singing a couple of special
songs and Bro. Donnie brought yet another Spirit-filled message,
choosing his text from 2nd Chronicles 7:12-14. We look forward
to far-reaching results for the benefit of God's cause from this
revival!
Don't forget the Semi-annual Association Meeting to be held
on Thursday, April 6th, 4:00 P. M. at Mt. Nebo. Our
Pastor/Deacons meeting will be on Monday evening, April 10th,
followed by our monthly church business meeting Wednesday
evening, April 12th.
We had visitors again during our revival, and encourage you to
come back and bring others with you...we truly enjoy the
fellowship! Prayer continues to be a need of utmost importance in
our community, our nation, and around the world. Please pray for
those on the church prayer lists, the people in our armed forces, our
nation's leaders, and each other. Have a good week, and may God
bless you.

The Day of the Lord.
The Day of the Lord is a people.
If men of Science had listened to the old time religion, the people that
live now would not be enjoying the comforts of modern life.
Just as men of science unveil these wonderful things that people enjoy
today, the Body of the Lord will unveil the mystery of God. We know that
the mystery of God must be done away with.
Rev. 10:7 But in the days of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to
sound, the mystery of God should be finished.
The body of the Lord will go beyond the age of fear, where man has
been blinded to darkness. The dark age has passed, the body of the Lord is
knowing the secrets of eternity, infinity and immortality. We have thought
these dimensions belonged only to a God of mystery, but the people of the
Day of the Lord shall unveil these mysteries.
First Th. 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so
cometh as a thief in the night (man's darkness.)
First Th. 5:4-5 But ye brethren, are not in darkness, that that day
should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, (truth) and
the children of (out of) the day: we are not of the night, nor the darkness.
The body of the Lord will come as a thief in man's night (ignorance).
The words of Jesus offended the people in His day. Some people
today will be offended when they see the Son of man ascend unto a glory.
above the old heavens and earth, up above the creeds and darkness of men.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectations of the creature waiteth for
the manifestation of the sons of God.
The apostle Paul taught that Son ship is the hope of the entire creation.
Jesus Christ is the firstborn of God's new creation of Sons; But there
are many more Sons that make up the great tabernacle of God.
Rev. 1:10 I1 was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a
great voice, as of a trumpet, (God's temple people).
Rev. 1:15 and his voice as the sound of many waters (God's many
membered body).
John saw our day. He saw the fullness of Christ in His completeness.
The voice as the sound of many waters was all the Sons in
completeness.
God is glorified because of this day (His people).
A New Birth is taking place today, bringing forth people out of an
imaginary spirit world because the mysteries of God are being finished.
The "mysteries" means what is known only to the initiated.
The day of the Lord (the manifested Sons of God) are the initiated of
God. They will unveil the mystery of God. A mystery is something
unexplained, unknown, or have been kept secret.
I Cor. 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery even the
hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto the glory.
I Cor. 15:51 Behold I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but
we shall all be changed.
Some people think they know all about the mystery, that we will all
rise into the sky and meet the Lord and be changed. And that is right, but
remember, it is a mystery and it won't be as a natural man thinks it will be.
The Sons of God are not living by faith any longer. Faith is the
substance of things hoped for and the Sons
Of God are not hoping any longer because that which was in part have
given way to that which is perfect.
The Sons of God have become faith and now are the living substance
of things they had hoped for. You must become your faith and your vision,
because to stay in a mystery, a vision, or faith would not ever bring you
into the realization of your hope.
This is why the mystery of God must be finished. We must awaken to
the fact that God (the word) has been made flesh again.
If your being is so dry that you cannot hear what the spirit is saying,
then let the well of living water that is in thy belly spring forth and water
thy substance.
Abraham dug good wells in his day and Jesus dug good well in the
people in His day. And the Sons of God are going to dig within you until
out of your belly shall spring rivers of living water.
Stop looking away into an imaginary spirit world for help; your help is
within yourself. Continued next week.

Abundant Life

& Living
By Lucille Stockton
Principles and Rules are established
to make life better for humankind.
Since the emergence of the first
civilization, God has continuously
given humanity wisdom to make
Laws and rules that would make life
better for the human family. Although
death reigned from Adam to Moses. St. Matthew 5: 6-7 (kjr). The sermon.
Jesus taught on the mountain was rules for the human race to live a better
life. Thank God for this dispensation; where the principles are not only
given for a better life. They are given for abundant life, for the soul and
body.
Keep the laws of life and live. Forsake not the laws of God that he gave
for the human family to receive their redemption of life and living. All
God promised through the sacrifice of his dear son is very sure. But there-
are stipulations by which to receive them. God gave us rules, laws and
commandments to keep in order for him to keep his promise of restoring
humanity back into the abundant life he gave mankind in Paradise. Don't'.
blame God who can not lie, for what you haven't received, just obey his
laws, rules, commandments and principles.
"Love Life and Live It."

Central Baptist Church
Welcome back Romanian Mission Team!! On March 20 six'
members from Central Baptist Church departed from Cross City to
travel to Southern Europe, the country of Romania. There they met
up with John Fracker from Hearts of Faith Ministries,
(www.heartsoffaith.org), and began what would end up to be a
very successful outreach for the Lord Jesus Christ. Before the trip,
was over 90 plus decisions for Christ in three different Gypsy
villages and 21 Baptisms were the fruit of their efforts. Twelve
more were scheduled to be baptized yesterday in the village of.
Villa Techi near the city of Rehgien. Pastor David Downing led'
this team, John Orlando, B.J. Fore, Lacey Carter, Lee Allie
Kirkland and her son Brandon. For most it was their first mission
trip abroad.
Hearts of Faith Ministries and founder John Fracker were here
in Cross City recently with two Gypsy home missionaries, Abbi,
and Sondu from the village of Villa Techi. Since that time John
Fracker and his Ministry has been under severe attack by. the
enemy. John sends his greetings and heart felt appreciation for all'
the prayers that Cross City has directed his way. He asks that all'
the churches in our Association continue to pray that Hearts of'
Faith will continue to be the lighthouse of central northern
Romania, and that God will continue to use them to lead many to
the saving Grace of Jesus Christ.
One village where John Fracker and the boys have been
working, (Tonchu), has reached a membership of 168 members. 2
years ago not one person in that village was saved. I know because'
I was there when the first 9 saints were baptized.
Satan has lost many souls because of the work of Hearts of Faith
Ministries. If you are looking for a place to invest in the kingdom
of God over and above Tithes, I would strongly recommend Hearts'
of Faith based in Cookeville Tenn. Under the umbrella of Popular
Groove Baptist Church, Pastor Bobby Sebastion. John' Fracker
needs more help to accomplish where the Lord is leading him and
it is up to us to supply that help.

Basketball Teams Enjoy Awards Banquet

Basketball Teams Enjoy Awards Banquet


Junior Varsity Basketball Team


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin
'Gator Boys' Have Become
'Gator Men'


Talk about good timing. They saved the .
best for last, peaking in their 39th game of the
season.
These "Gator Boys," as Joakim Noah calls
them, became "Gator Men." They grew up right h .
before our eyes in the last two months, cutting
their own swath of fantasy through "March
Madness."
Cinderella didn't wear a George Mason uniform
after all. Their 21st birthday was a blowout, 73-
57, over UCLA for the national championship.of college
basketball.
In golf parlance, the Florida Gators shot the
equivalent of a 59 in the final round of the U.S. Open: The
perfect game at the perfect time.
Even late-coming-bandwagon jumper Billy Packer of CBS
admitted "Their starters had the perfect game." Florida's
defense was the Ruination of the Bruin Nation. The Gator
defenders got tired of hearing all the pre-game hoopla
about UCLA's great defense. Said starter Corey Brewer:
"They always talked about UCLA playing such great
defense the last 12 games. We thought hey, we've been
playing pretty good defense, too. How about giving us a
little bit of respect?"
The Gators killed the Bruins with balance: Four
players in double figures and 21 team assists.
They killed them with rejection: An NCAA team record of
10 blocked shots an individual record of six by Noah.

Varsity Basketball Team

*The Varsity and Junior
Varsity basketball teams
rVcently held their end of the
season Basketball Banquet at
the Lighthouse Restaurant in
Fanning Springs. After a
delicious seafood meal the
girls were their various awards.
JV Coach, P.J. Hope,
thanked the girls for a most
enjoyable season and spoke


highly of their team spirit and
willingness to be coached.
Coach P.J. explained that this
was most likely his last year of
,coaching basketball. He stated
that he would like to spend
more time with his wife and
children.
Coach P.J. called each junior
varsity player up front and
presented them with a nice


certificate for their
participation in the basketball
season.
Karen Blount earned MVP
honors for her outstanding play
on the Junior Varsity team.
Jessica Chewning received the
Highest GPA trophy.
Varsity Coach Paul Bennett
expressed his thanks to the


lettermen were Kayla Clemons
and Alexis Mauldin. 2nd year
Player was Kelly Fowler and
3rd year players were Vanessa
Hollis, Shonta Harris, Farrain
Timmons and Katrise
Kirkland. Members of the Dist.
5-3A Runner-Up team were
Christina Hampton, Karen
Blount, Kelly Fowler, Alexis
Mauldin, Shonta Harris,
Vanessa Hollis, Farrain


They killed them with efficiency: One turnover by point
guard Taurean Green, only five other all together by
teammates.
They killed them with accuracy: A shooting percent of
45 by Florida including two killer threes by Lee
Humphrey to open the second half.
.... And they killed them with coaching: The
1-;: .0." defensive schemes of Donovan and Larry
-, Shyatt shut down the UCLA offense,
^ holding the Bruins to 36 percent from the
field.
"i The only problem is that Donovan and
Shyatt might be asked to work overtime.
Football Coach Urban Meyer, who was in
Indianapolis for the game Monday .night,
may ask to them to teach his offensive line
some of those blocking techniques."' -'
The Gator domination was so overwhelming that UCLA
only led twice by two points 2-0 and 4-2.
Sorry, no 12th NCAA basketball title for UCLA this
time out. The Gators may be 10 championships behind the
Bruins in that category, but it ain't over yet for Donovan.
There's a new sheriff in college basketball with such
a young team that he may be around for quite a spell yet.
One senior graduates, but all four sophomores and one
junior starters appear headed back next season.
Forget any talk about Donovan leaving to coach
elsewhere. And the suggestion that Florida is strictly, a
"football school" is like saying Harvard is a rowing school. '
Early this week, before the title game, I wrote that-
the Gators had their best basketball ahead of them. And
barring any NBA defections, academic casualties .or
injuries, I think that's still true.
The trouble is, to do any better they will have to
go 39-0 next year and improve on perfection. _


Timmons, Katrise Kirkland
and Kayla Clemons.
The Rebound Award went to
Shonta Harris, the Highest
GPA Award went to Katrise
Kirkland, the Bear Pride
Award went to Vanessa Hollis
and the Co-MVP Award went
to Katrise Kirkland and Farrain
Timmons.

Why Spay Or
Neuter?
This low cost surgery
keeps your animal healthier
and helps fight overpopulation.
Millions of cats and dogs
of all ages and breeds suffer as
strays. These strays are a result
of unwanted, unplanned litters
that could have been prevented
by spaying and neutering.
Rarely surviving more than a
few years on their own, strays
die painfully by starvation,
disease, freezing or being hit
by cars.
Please think responsibly -
have your pet spayed or
neutered.

World War II Veterans

March 9th we were
privileged to have as our guest
speaker ex-marine, war hero, "
Guy Gabaldon. Guy was a
teenager in California in an *. .
area where his school friends A -
and his co-workers were Nisei,
Americans born of Japanesea .
immigrants. Guy learned to ws
speak Japanese and so when he
joined the Marines and was
stationed in Saipan, he had an
unusual advantage. He
eventually captured some
1,500 Japanese. Guy went into
caves and convinced would be s
prisoners that they'd be fed
and treated well if they
surrendered. One capture was c
witnessed by his fellow
Marines when he single Ohana & Guy Gabaldon
handedly brought in 800
prisoners.
A movie was made of Guy's experiences, his ingenuity and his
heroism. Jeffery Hunter portrayed Guy with co-stars Vic Damone
and David Jenssen.
Although Colonel John L. Schwabe, USMC recommended that
he be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, Guy only
received the Silver Star. Sixteen years later he was awarded the
Navy Cross. Today we await word that he will finally receive the
original recommendation of the Congressional Medal of Honor.-

The Florida Division
'of Forestry's (DOF) fire
weather forecast is predicting
conditions that are conducive
to an active wildfire season.
:Official outlooks indicate that
the remaining months of the
peak fire season (March,
April, May, June) will
continue to be drier and
warmer than normal. This
drying condition has resulted
in hazardous fuel conditions
in the Waccasassa District
(Alachua, Levy, Marion and
Putnam counties).
Over thirty days have
passed since the District has
.experienced any significant
rainfall. The current
Ketchum Beech Drought
Index (KBDI) for this area is
466 on a scale of 0 800,
which is approaching a
critical level.
:The Division of Forestry
is recommending residents
use extreme caution when
conducting any outdoor
burning and to postpone
burning until the area
experiences significant
rainfall if possible. "Most of
our escaped fires occur from
yard waste type fires and not
from experienced burners
with'equipment," stated Gary
Beauchamp, Forestry
Operations Administrator.
He continued, "Anyone
conducting any outdoors type
activities that might generate
sparks or heat need to be


cautious."
Outdoor burning tips
include: never leave a fire
unattended, don't burn on
windy days, keep a water
hose or shovel handy in case
your fire escapes, be sure
your fire is completely out
before you leave and make
sure you meet the required


setbacks. Setbacks for
residential piles of 8 feet
diameter or less are 25 feet

from your house, 25 feet from
forests, 50, feet from public
paved roads and 150 feet
from occupied buildings.


Help prevent damage from bark beetles,
diseases, and wildfire through practices
that promote healthy pines.


* Thin dense pine stands.

* Control understory
plant competition.

* Minimize tree wounds
during harvests.


* Use prescribed fire.

* Harvest low-vigor
stands and replant.

* Plant species right
for the soil and site.

Rotary Student Guests For February & March
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
There were five young
men and women to attend the '
Rotary Club as Guest speakers
for the month of February and
March. February's guests
were Daniel Locke and Kaylla
Futch. Tearra Owens, Sarah
Durham, and Monica Wood ,.
attended the March meeting, "'...'
all "wowing" the Rotary .
members with their speeches .
which ranged from teen
automobile accidents to the
Patriot Act.
Daniel Locke was the ... I S
young man who spoke about j
Sthe Patriot Act. Daniel began
by talking about our
Forefathers and those who
:fought to defend our right to
'"life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness."
Daniel feels that the Patriot : -. "
Act represents a serious threat '.:.: ...
to: our most valuable rights
provided by the Constitution.
While its purpose is to Kaylla Futch & Daniel Locke
enhance the authority of U.S.
law enforcement for fighting terrorism, it, in Daniel's opinion, has jeopardized rights as citizens of a
free nation by detaining people without sufficient cause, snooping into the financial records and
communications of ordinary citizens, keeping data in governmental data banks indefinitely, all
violations of our right to privacy and personal freedom. It was a very compelling speech, giving a lot
of food for thought.
Daniel is the son of Joe and Diana Locke of Cross City. He is the Vice President of the FBLA,
Vice President of the National Honor Society, member of Beta, Spanish Club, FCA and First Baptist
Youth. Daniel has played football, basketball and was a member of the weight lifting team. Daniel's
,goal is to attend the University of Florida, majoring in accounting.
Kaylla Futch spoke on Capital Punishment. Kaylla stand on Capital Punishment is that it should
.be enforced because it is cheaper on tax payers, serves justice, and because it is an incentive for
people to do good.
According to the Department of Corrections, it costs tax payers $17,604. year to take care of one
inmate. Yearly, Florida spends on average 1,791,791,741. on health care, protection, food, etc.
A person who murders deserves to be punished. Kaylla noted that many people who commit this
type of crime are not mentally stable and can not be put back into society. And then there are serial
killers like Ted Bundy who killed 28 women.
With today's DNA testing, evidence against a prisoner is. a certainty of their guilt. However we
must be certain of their guilt before handing down this punishment.

Diabetes Self-Management
Class in Cross City

The Dixie County Health Department is partnering with
Suwannee River Area Health Education Center (AHEC) to
provide a series of classes on diabetes self-management. Diabetes
Self-Management Training: The Key to A Healthy Life With
Diabetes will be a four part series aimed at teaching self-care
skills to adults that have been diagnosed with diabetes. Each
session will be two hours and length and will cover a variety of
topics including:
Overview of Diabetes
Managing Blood Sugar
Nutrition and Meal Planning
Medications
Exercise
Foot, Skin & Dental Care

The class will be taught by a nurse practitioner who
specializes in diabetes education. We feel that this is so valuable
because participants will be getting expert instruction on such an
important issue. As a part of the class, participants will receive
blood sugar, cholesterol and A1C testing. There will also be
opportunities to win great prizes. Classes will be held on
Wednesday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm beginning April 19
through May 10.
This series of classes will be free of charge. The class size will
be limited and preference will be given to older adults and their
caregivers. This is a great opportunity for people that have been
newly diagnosed or those previously diagnosed that have not had
self-management training.
If you have any questions regarding Diabetes Self-
Management Training, please contact the Dixie County Health
Department at (352) 498-1360. If you or a loved one has
diabetes, we can help!


Many feel that having Capital Punishment helps to deter many "would be" murderers from
committing the crime.
In conclusion, Kayla stated that Capital Punishment should be enforced not only to protect us
form dangerous people, but because we should not accept murder and become softened to it.
Kaylla is the daughter of David Ridgeway and Kathy Futch of Cross City. She is an active
member of the FCA, Beta, NHS, FFA, HOSA, Youth Group, and World Changers. Her favorite
subject is Health because she loves to help others and plans on going into the medical field. She
hopes to attend the University of Florida, majoring in the Masters P.A. Program, specializing in
pediatrics.
Tearra Owens was one of three guests for the month of March. Tearra spoke about a subject that
is near and dear to her heart, her sister Sarah who was born with Down syndrome. Down syndrome
is a genetic disorder. While normally we are born with 46 chromosomes that are supposed to be split
evenly into 23 pairs, persons with Down have an extra 21st chromosome.
Tearra noted that persons with this disorder share a lot of the same physical traits and are
developmentally delayed.
Tearra's sister, Sarah, has all of this, but more importantly she shares some remarkable traits as
well, such as a sweet and loving nature and is socially outgoing. But like most siblings, Sarah can
get on her brother Michael and Tearra's nerves.
Tearra noted that even though Sarah has special needs, the world would truly be a better place if
we could all love the way Sarah does.
Tearra is the daughter of Angel Anderson and Terry Owens of Cross City. Her extra curricular
activities and hobbies include being a member of the Volleyball and Softball Teams, as well as a
member of the Beta Club of which she is the Treasurer, HOSA, which she is the Treasurer, Spanish
Club, FCA, and NHA. Her favorite subject is Math, finding it both easy and fun. After high school,
Tearra plans on going to Santa Fe Community College where she will strive to obtain her degree in
Dental Hygiene.
Sarah Durham spoke about her experience as a VolunTeen at Shands at UF last summer. Sarah
has been a student in the DCHS Health Science Program. Last summer she had the opportunity to
do volunteer work at Shands through the Summer Shands VolunTeen Program. Like many large
hospitals, volunteers play a vital role in providing patient services.
Sarah reported every Thursday working in two-hour shifts in various areas of the hospital. Her
day began at 8:00am and ended at 5:00pm. She worked on the neurosurgery floor, hyperbaric
chamber, pediatric unit or pediatric intensive care and ended her day in the emergency room. She
highlighted many of her experiences and shared her feelings about the health care industry.
Sarah reported that she enjoyed every minute she spent volunteering because there was always
something new and exciting to experience and it gave her a unique insight to her career goal as a
nurse practitioner.
Sarah is the daughter of Garry and Debbie Durham of Cross City. Her school activities and
hobbies include volleyball, Beta Club (State Secretary); FCA; NHS (President); HOSA (Reporter);
Spanish Club; FFA; and is actively involved in her church's youth group and helps in the nursery. It
goes without saying that Sarah's favorite subject is Nursing Assistant 3. She hopes to attend UNC,
Chapel Hill and major in Nursing. Her long term goal is to receive her masters in nursing and work
in Critical Care Pediatrics.
Last, but certainly not least is Monica Wood, who spoke on Teen Automobile Accidents.
Monica noted that over the past year Dixie County has experienced several teen accidents, three of
which ended in tragic deaths. She noted that these serious accidents are occurring more frequently
and are becoming a huge issue in our community.
Monica gave some alarming statistics. She noted that 53 percent of the accidents occur on the
weekends. Careless actions and bad decisions, such as racing, not paying attention to the road,
driving too fast, or drinking are usually the cause.
Monica named several of her classmates who had been in bad wrecks and reminded us of those
youth we lost recently in fatal accidents; Candace Veach, Chris Abare, and only a few weeks ago,
Judson Walker.
While Monica stated it had made her more aware when she was behind the wheel, we can only
hope that others will take a good look at the statistics and learn as well and make better choices
while driving.
Monica is the daughter of Anissa Kidd and William Wood of Steinhatchee. She is a member of
the Beta Club, Spanish Club, FCA and Leadership Class. Monica's favorite subject is math since it
comes easy to her and she understands it well. She plans on continuing her education at Santa Fe
Community College and then transfer to Florida State University where she will major in Education.
Congratulations to you all and all the best in your future endeavors.

LifeSouth needs help
from the community
After releasing a media
appeal for additional 0-

LifeSouth Community Blood
Centers has not received
enough O-negative blood to
safely replenish the community
supply.
"Any patient involved in a

trauma situation, like a traffic


accident, will receive O-negative if transfusions are immediately
necessary because there isn't enough time to determine the blood
type of the patient," said LifeSouth Chief Operating Officer Bill
Gair. That is why it is vital for our hospitals to have a steady
supply of O-negative."
Please call toll free at 888-795-2707 to make an appointment to
donate at one of LifeSouth's three local donor centers in
Gainesville and Chiefland.
Blood donors must be at.least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds

Possible future NASCAR racers, Justin Hodge & Christian Carnes

Justin and Christian have racing at heart. Both of these boys
have been around racing since they have been born. Justin's
Grandpa has raced since his teens. When Grandpa retired his
racing career he passed it on to Justin's dad (Kevin). Both Grandpa
Gerry and Kevin were very successful racers. Justin has followed
these footsteps, and from the looks of things Justin is going to
show his Grandpa and his daddy a new meaning of racing success.
Justin and Christian have begun their racing career.
They are racing for FKA (Florida Kart Association). The
classes that these boys are racing in for their age group require
restrictor plates, which restrict their speed. The only problem, is
that these boys are not used to having restricted speed.


They are used to achieving the speed they need as fast as they
need it to get to the front of the pack. Restrictor plate racing means
when they start their race they can never let off the gas the entire
race, and they have to use the drafting techniques to pass. During
the race they want to have little contact with the other carts
because this also reduces their speed, but trust me they know just
how to give a little contact to the other cart to give them the
advantage, and then they say See Ya!
We all have no question that these two boys will adjust rather
quickly and finish at the top. Saturday, February 18, 2006 they
traveled to Land 0' Lakes, FL to visit Dirt Devil Speedway, their
first FKA track for a practice run before the first race of the season
on Saturday, February 25, 2006.
These boys were accompanied with family and friends. Justin
and Christian would like to have our communities' prayers and
support. May God bless these boys on and off the track We will
continue to keep you posted on their racing results.
Who knows, we may have future NASCAR racers right herein
Dixie County.
Good luck to these boys, you both have our prayers and
support.

Historical Cross City Railroad Depot
The Nature Coast State Trails Manager, Kirk Marhefka, has asked Barbara Moore, President of
the Assembly of Fine Artists, to promote the use of the historic Cross City Railroad Depot. This
building has the necessary space and accommodations required for meetings, exhibits, fundraisers
and other local activities. In turn, Ms. Moore has invited Mr. Marhefka to attend the Assembly's
March 16 noontime meeting held at 74 SE 870 St., Old Town, to answer questions members may
have regarding the Depot.
Ms. Moore will also be working in conjunction with the Cross.City Chamber of Commerce and
with the Dixie County Historical Society on the promotion of the railroad depot. In addition to this
opportunity to exhibit, sell, hold auctions and various types of shows, there will be a rail connection
to the other railroad buildings along the Nature Coast Trail.
The April meeting of the Assembly of Fine Artists will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2006 at
11:00 am, at the depot. Bring your lunch and ideas and be prepared to have an interesting time with
so much to discuss! Plans are in the works to initiate a Senior Center in Old Town and a library in
Fanning Springs. Come and share samples or photos of your work and participate in the meeting.
Local business owners are most welcome, as are retired and senior citizens.
Don't Buy Kids Mallards For Easter
With Easter approaching, many parents consider purchasing cute little mallard ducklings as
gifts for their children. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) suggest
buying your child a bunny rabbit or a stuffed animal instead.
"Although these ducklings might make nice pets while they're young, they can live 10 years
and quickly outgrow the cute and fuzzy stage, leaving full-size droppings on your patio and
outdoor furniture," said FWC waterfowl biologist Diane
Eggeman. "When this happens, parents and children often
grow tired of caring for these pets and decide to turn them
loose into the wild."
What they may not realize is this is illegal and
putting Florida's native wildlife in jeopardy. No one
may possess, buy or sell mallards in Florida without
special permit from the FWC, and releasing them is
prohibited.
These activities are against the law because
domesticated ducks, once released, are capable of
transmitting diseases, and they compete with native wildlife for
food and habitat. The more important reason is that releasing mallards threatens the existence of
the Florida mottled duck, a unique subspecies found only in peninsular Florida
