jBoyd Secures Funds

For Horseshoe Cove
"Congressman Allen Boyd (D) announced last Thursday, May
25 h, that he was able to secured $2.5 million to dredge Horseshoe
Cove with the passage of the Energy and Water Appropriations
Act (HR 5427). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will use this
funding to return Horseshoe Cove to its authorized depth, allowing
for traffic in and out of Horseshoe Beach.
"This is an important development for the people of Dixie
County, said Congressman Boyd. "Dredging Horseshoe Cove
-will bolster boater safety and navigability, and I was pleased to
,address one of Dixie County's top priorities in this legislation." ,.
The Army-Corps of Engineers previously dredged Horseshoe
Cove in 1997 and 2001. Since then, the cove has suffered fri-.m
significant silting, causing a considerable decrease in depth. The
dredging project will return Horseshoe Cove to the appropriate
depth by removing sand and silt that has accumulated.
The Advocate will continue to report on the progress of this
project as it unfolds.

Pictured above is part of a face from a skull found on an island off the coast of Suwannee. Below are bones
found in the same area; both found to be 2,000 to 2,500 years old.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The last thing that Dawn Dubois expected to see while taking a walk on the beach was human
remains, and then later finding they are between 2,000-2,500 years old!
Dawn and friends Steve Fremen and his daughter Stephanie had been out fishing off the coastline
of Suwannee when they decided to pull up to an island and stretch their legs. Dawn, who is an
amateur photographer, began her walk with camera in hand when she sighted several bones. Dawn's
curiosity led her to continue her walk, but this time she was looking for more clues about the bones
and that is when she found a partial skull and then another which had been preserved in a thick layer
of clay. Not knowing if they were animal or human she called to Steve to come and have a look. His
immediate thoughts were that they had come across an Indianan burial ground.
Dawn knew she needed to call authorities about her findings and as soon as they were able to get
a signal she called the Dixie County Sheriff's Department. That called received a great deal of
attention from a number of agencies around the state, including the Florida Wildlife Commission,
Medical Examiner's Office, C.A. Pound Human Identification Laboratory at the University of
Florida, State Bureau of Archaeology Research, and the island's owner, Mike Crews.

The "ex-factor"
Over the years, I've become acquainted with quite a number of
men who served in the United States Marine Corps. For the most
part, I have found them to be patriotic, loyal to our nation's
military efforts, and particularly so to the Corps, its traditions and
what it stands for. In this vein, I have been advised more than once
that, "There is no such thing as an ex-Marine."
I understand what they're getting at, and it's an admirable
sentiment. The idea is that the Corps instills a sense of loyalty so
passionate that it never goes away. Even after a Marine leaves
active duty, he is still a Marine at heart.
However, I must take issue with the idea that this principled
loyalty never departs any person whose active duty in the Corps
ends. I would probably go along with 99% as an accurate figure to
describe Marines who remain faithful to the principles of the Corps
after leaving active duty, but there are exceptions.
I expect the most egregious of these would have to be Lee
Harvey Oswald, who assassinated President John F. Kennedy.
.Oswald had served a hitch in the Marines, after which he found
Soviet Communists among those he most admired. I'd have to say
that Oswald qualifies as an ex-Marine, and I doubt that any of the
aforementioned 99% would disagree.
Oswald's is, of course, an extreme example, one which I am
citing only to emphasize that the "ex-factor"-is occasionally
applicable to someone who has previously served in the Marines.
U.S. Representative John Murtha (D-Pa,) served in the Marines
during the Vietnam War, and was highly-decorated. Much better
credentialed as a war hero than, shall we say, Senator John Kerry.
However, his credentials notwithstanding, Murtha's rise to
notoriety outside his home district was largely the result of
statements he made late last year that were altogether inconsistent
with positions he took on military matters during the Clinton
administration.
Specifically, Murtha was considered a "hawk" with regard to
matters military, for which reason it seemed highly improbable that
he would suddenly advocate an immediate and total withdrawal of
our troops from Iraq; but that's exactly what he did. Not only did
House Democrats not fall in line, even Speaker Nancy Pelosi
avoided comment. And some Republicans said some downright
unkind things about Congressman Murtha.
Murtha's rationale was that we needed to abandon the military
approach and win the hearts and minds of our enemies. I believe it
would be more in line with Marine Corps strategy to point out that,
when the proper hold is applied to the appropriate vantage point,
hearts and minds will follow.
Fast-forward to early 2006, when there were reports that a
contingent of Marines had killed a number of civilians in Iraq after
.their vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. The military authorities
are investigating, and indications are that there is a possibility that
the Marines acted inappropriately and could be subject to court
martial.
John Murtha couldn't wait for the investigation, however. As
soon as he could access an accommodating microphone (and these
'days that doesn't take long when you're a politician putting down
the war effort), he was asserting that the accused Marines had
killed innocent Iraqi civilians, including women and children, in
"'cold blood."
It's bad enough that we have to put up with the likes of Michael
Moore, Cindy Sheehan and the Dixie Chicks. At least those of us to
whom it makes any difference understand that they address the
issues from a sigmoidoscopic perspective. But when a member of
Congress sings a similar tune, even people with IQ's in the triple
digits might take them seriously.
So, am I putting John Murtha in the same category with Lee
Harvey Oswald? Obviously, Murtha is not a presidential assassin;
:however giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war is a
pretty serious matter. Enough, perhaps, to qualify the congressman
as an ex-Marine.


Letter To The Editor
The ultimate conclusion of these findings is that our universe,
solar system and especially, our earth was purposely constructed
by a very powerful intelligence within every narrow scientific
parameters to allow human life to flourish. Let me explain.
If our earth were located much farther away from our sun we
would freeze like the planet Mars. If it were much closer to the sun
then we would be burned up like the hot surface of Mercury or the
860 degree temperature on Venus.
If the magnetic forces within our planet earth were stronger or
weaker, life could not exist.
If our earth did not rotate every twenty-four hours then one half
of the planet earth would be in permanent darkness without
vegetation. And the surface on the other side of the planet would
be uninhabitable, because it would suffer from overwhelming heat
of the permanent exposure to the sun. If our earth were not tilted at
twenty-three degrees, we would not have the seasonal variation
that produces the incredible abundance of crops that feed our
planets huge population.
Without the twenty-three degree tilt, less than half of the
present land used for cultivation of crops would grow vegetables.
The moon produces the tides that continually replenish the
oceans with oxygen allowing the fish to breathe. If the earth were
significantly smaller, the lessened gravity would be incapable of
holding the atmosphere, and would provide no protection form the
25,000 meteors that burn up in the atmosphere over the earth every
day.
In addition, a thinner atmosphere would be incapable of
retaining the higher temperatures required for human and animal
life to exist. If our planet earth were twice as large, the effect of
increased gravity would make everything on the planets surface
weigh eight times what it weighs today. This increased weight
would destroy many forms of human and animal life.
The smallest change in any of the circumstances of the natural
world, such as the relative strengths of the forces of nature, or the
properties of the elementary particles, would have led to a universe
in which there could be no animal or human life, as we know it
today.
Thanks be to the Creator for the wisdom and love that was
displayed in our creation.
However, the answer is clear. If the theory of evolution is
rejected, then the humans have no other credible alternatives than
the Bibles accounts of creation by a personal creator. This
alternative is unacceptable to many humans in modem society,
because they dread the thought of facing their creator.
They would like to avoid this issue by firmly avoiding
examining the overwhelming evidence against evolution through
the use of ridicule and rejection. In the final analysis the greatest
obstacle to seeing the truth about our creators role in creation is
often our own attitudes and not carefully examining the evidence,
the truth about creation as well as our relationship with the creator
will become evident through the "Word of God, the Bible".

US 19 From

Salem To

Perry
A $16.7 million project to
resurface and make drainage
improvements to U.S. 19 south
. of Perry is underway with
daytime lane closures
scheduled, according to the
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
The project begins at the
Fenholloway River Bridge and
ends 17 miles to the south,
about a mile south of the
community of Salem.
Last week they began
closing one of the two
southbound lanes in order to
begin construction of a new
drainage pipe under the travel
lanes. There are five locations
where these pipes will be
placed under the roadway.
The first location is just south
of County Road 30.
Earlier this week they
began milling, or removing the
top layer of asphalt, and
resurfacing the roadway. This
work started at the southern
end of the project limits, south
of Salem) and will proceed
north. One lane will be closed
during daytime hours.
Anderson Columbia
Company of Lake City is
under contract to the FDOT to
do the work. They have eight
months to complete the project
and should be finished by early
2007.


Leisure time is that five
or six hours when you
sleep at night.

Flooding Season Around The

Corner: Are You Ready?
Flooding is America's most common natural disaster. Even
though hurricanes are the main cause of flooding in Florida, we
must be prepared at all times. Officials from the State of Florida
Emergency Response Team (SERT) and the Department of
Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency,
(FEMA) urge Floridians to take action now and buy flood
insurance before heavy rains and late spring floods begin.
"There will be a rather dramatic shift from the typically dry-
months of March and April, to the rainy season that is underway
by June," said Ben Nelson, state meteorologist with Florida:
Division of Emergency Management.
According to the meteorologist, "in south Florida, the wet-
season usually begins by mid-May. The almost daily rains begin in;
central Florida in late May. While in north Florida the heavy
precipitation usually begins by early June."
Florida has a flat terrain and after heavy rains, when the ground.
becomes saturated, water can flow across fields, yards and streets.:
More than 25 percent of the National Flood Insurance Program's:
(NFIP) flood insurance claims are for structures outside identified:
flood plains.
More than two million NFIP flood insurance policies are in-
force in Florida. This represents a quarter of all policies written-
nationwide. Since 1978, the counties experiencing the most claims;
are Broward and Miami-Dade, however, all Florida counties are at-
risk of flooding.
"Buying flood insurance is the best way to protect yourself
from flood damages," said Scott Morris, FEMA director of Florida-
Long-Term Recovery. "In the last two storm seasons 64,000:
Floridians have been helped by their flood insurance policies."
In 2005 the NFIP received over 30,000 claims and disbursed
$322,743,654 in payments to Florida residents for closed claims.:
While in 2004, the claim count was over 34,000, and
$1,127,947,910 was paid.
"Whether your community has seasonal or occasional flooding,;
there are proactive measures that can help minimize or prevent
flood damage to homes and property," said Craig Fugate, director
of Florida Division of Emergency Management.
State and local officials recommend that you prepare now and,
follow these guidelines to minimize losses and protect your
property from flood damage:
1. Buy flood insurance coverage. Homeowners insurance doesn't
cover flooding. It takes 30 days for a policy to go into effect, so don't wait.',
You can obtain flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance'
Program, from your insurance agent. To find an agent near you call I1
800-427-2419.
2. Visit the FloodSmart Web site at www.floodsmart.gov to find outi
about your flood risk, how to protect your property and how to obtain,
flood insurance.
3. Stay informed of weather conditions in your area.
4. Be prepared to move valuable possessions to upper floors or to-
safe ground.
5. Have emergency supplies on hand to last for at least three days,
Food, bottled water, first aid supplies, medicines and a battery-operated'
radio should be ready to go, and have extra batteries.
6. Have a working sump pump. Buy and install a sump pump with"
back-up power.
7. Anchor fuel tanks. An unanchored tank can be torn free by:
floodwaters. :
8. Elevate your furnace, water heater, washer and dryer. They'
should be at least 12 inches above the base flood elevation (the projected,
floodwater depth).
9. Take photos or videos of important possessions. If your home isi
damaged in a flood, documentation will help you in filing a flood
insurance claim.
10. Plan for evacuation. Plan and practice a flood evacuation route,
ask someone out of state to be your "family contact" in case people are
separated and be sure everyone knows the contact's address and phone
number.
Flood insurance is easy to obtain and is sold by most insurance
agents. Visit www.FloodSmart.gov or call 1-800-427-2419 to
learn how to prepare for floods, how to purchase a National Flood
Insurance Policy and about the benefits of protecting homes and,
property against flooding.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 2006


Attention Migrant Parent(s) & Students!

We are pleased to be able to offer six (6) weeks of summer
classes in Suwannee and Horseshoe Beach this summer for
migrant students. While summer is a wonderful time for fun and
family vacations it is also a long break from reading and
mathematics. These classes are an opportunity for your children to
continue to progress in their academic studies while they also
enjoy a time with other children and a supportive, caring teacher.
The classes in Suwannee will be located at the Fire Station and the
classes in Horseshoe will be held at the City Hall. Lunches will be
provided.

National Trails Day Bike

Ride From Trenton To Cross

City To Be Held June 3rd
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Office
of Greenways & Trails will be holding a National Trails Day Bike
Ride on Saturday, June 3, 2006 on the Nature Coast State Trail.
All rides start at 9:00 AM from the Old Train Deport, 419
North Main Street in Trenton. This ride promises to be a fun, open,
unsupported, very low-pressure ride on the smoothly paved Nature
Coast Trail for al levels of bicyclists, including children. Family
ride groups are encouraged. Ride length options range from a few
miles for beginning riders and families with small children, up to
65 miles for hero cyclists who choose to ride the entire trail.
Maps of the Trail will be provided at the start in Trenton.
There will be refreshments at the Depot, plus convenience
stores along the Trail. There is a Dairy Queen under the live oaks
in Cross City.
The old railroad bridge where the Trail crosses the Suwannee
River near Old Town is a favorite option (about 12 miles from
Trenton). The original machinery, which made the bridge pivot to
allow steamboats to pass, still can be seen from the bank of the
river below the trail. The rural landscape that the trail passes
through-provides a peaceful atmosphere complete with live oaks
and wildflowers.
All riders, regardless of age, are required to wear helmets at all
times while riding. There will be no exception to this rule.
So make your plans now to join in a day of fresh air and
sunshine on the Nature Coast Greenways & Trails.

"SKULLS"
Continued from page 1

Of course Dawn had taken photos of her findings and turned them over to the DCSO who in turn
sent them to the 8"' District Medical Examiner's Office. Dr. M.J. Burt with the Medical Examiner's
Office and Dr. Anthony Falsetti with the C.A. Pound Institute met with Dixie SO Investigator Scott
Harden and FWC Officer Darby Butler and visited the site where Dawn had made her grizzly
discovery.
While investigators were busy at the sight, Dawn did some investigating of her own, beginning
with calling Crews, who had purchased the island several years ago. Crews shared with Dawn some
of the rich history of the area which included the discovery of a number of Indian burial grounds. He
figured the remains to be from the Creek, Seminole and Tamucau tribes.
I too had talked to Crews and found out there is indeed a rich history reaching out past our
coastlines. Crews noted that when his island was first surveyed in 1977 there was almost 60 acres;
today that same island is only 11-12 acres. He also led me to Ryan Wheeler from the Florida
Department of State Bureau of Archaeology Research.
Talking with Wheeler I wasn't surprised when he told me that many of those artifacts can be
seen in an exhibit at the University of Florida. Wheeler noted that our coastal area has been the basis
of numerous papers written by doctorate students.
Wheeler also noted the skulls and bones had been found at the tide line during low tide. He stated
that most likely the original resting place of the remains is not where Dawn found them. Having
been found at the tide line, they had simply washed up to the island.
The most astounding piece of information that Wheeler gave was the age of the remains. In fact
he stated that there has been evidence of people off the coast of Dixie County 5-6 thousand years
ago. They are known as the Deppford Culture, Swift Creek Culture and Weeden Island Culture; to
name a few. The modern tribes such as the Seminole and Creek come from these cultures. Wheeler
suspects the remains that Dawn found are from the Deppford Culture.
It is hard to image people wandering around Dixie County thousands of years ago. We always
think of our pioneer families when we think of Dixie's history. Of course time has changed the
landscape of our area with the help of storms and normal erosion as Crews noted with his islands'
reduction from 60 to 12 acres.
Wheeler recommended several books which talk about our coastline all the way down to Cedar
,Key; "Archaeology of Pre-Columbia Florida," by Jerry Milanich (chapter 4) and "Florida's First
Peoples," by Robyn Brown.
It is also important to note that it is a felony to dig or take from an archaeology site. Wheeler
stated that human remains such as those Dawn found have no monetary value. Taking it even
further, we should view these remains the same way we would one of our loved ones who have
passed and give them the same respect, leaving them for time to continue to care for them.

"RED BELLY"
Continued from page 1


The MC for the day was Russ McCallister of
Suwannee. Russ is fairly new to the Chamber,
having hosted last year's Christmas in the Park,
and again volunteered by his lovely wife Kay
and Cindy Bellot for Red Belly Day. With the
event being held on Memorial Day weekend it
was only fitting that our brave men and women
in the armed forces were remembered, like
Ricky Lord, who died in Iraq while serving in
the US Army. Lord was from neighboring
Steihhatchee and will always be remembered as
a hero.
The day began with Big Cypress Bluegrass
and the Philmon Family Band followed by the
Rug Rat Race and then our own "homegrown"
Southland lifting us up with their gospel music.
The audience was then introduced to this year's
beauty pageant winners. The Rick Gordon
Band kicked off the afternoon's entertainment
and was a prelude to the much awaited Highway
101; and buddy they were hot!
Cooling off from Highway 101 and the
bright sunshine, folks gathered at the beautiful
Fanning Springs for the Belly Flopping contest.

Unfortunately we didn't have any takers for the
Melon Chunkin' this year. However, our
flopperss" didn't let us down. See next week's
issue for the winners' names and pictures.
During all the great entertainment folks
shopped at a host of arts and craft vendors and
kept up their strength with great food! It was all
there, hot dogs, BBQ, funnel cakes, shaved ice,
homemade ice cream and much more!
Dotti South was the last band to perform at
the North Stage and gave their usual knee-
slapping, toe-tapping performance.
As the time arrived for the Bellamy Brothers
to entertain us, folks began gathering around
Rachel's Stage under the majestic oaks, giving
some relief to the days' heat. David & Howard
Bellamy and their band belted out hit after hit,
covering 30 years of entertaining. All I have to
say is guys "You aren't getting older, you are
getting better!"
As the crowds began to disperse from a full
day of entertainment, the smiles on their faces
showed all those who worked so hard to bring
this event to life, that, "A good time was had by
all!"

Central Florida Electric
Gears Up For Phase II of
Suwannee Transmission Project
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Central Florida Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CFECI) recently
announced at a Dixie County Board Commissioners Meeting that
they have geared up to begin Phase Two of their Suwannee
Transmission Project which consists of the construction of
approximately 13 miles of 69kV transmission line along SR 349.
In 1997, CFECI completed Phase One of the project. Phase
One was the construction of approximately three miles of
transmission line in Old Town that connected with Progress
Energy's new system along SR 349 that replaced an 25kV
distribution line through the suburbs of Old Town and has acted as
an "express" feed for Suwannee homes and businesses. However,
with the growth in Suwannee coming in the near future, CFECI is
planning ahead for the projected need for additional power.
Phase Two will begin about three miles south of Old Town and
follow the western right-of-way along SR 349. Pre-stressed steel
reinforced spun concrete poles will replace the existing 25kV
distribution line. The average distance between poles is 550 feet
and will stand 80 feet tall. The new poles are made to withstand
130 miles per hour Wind.
Currently CFECI is working on acquiring a twenty-five foot
right-of-way (ROW) adjacent to the county road ROW from
private landowners, giving them the absolute minimum in order to
pass the National Electric Safety Code.
It is hoped that the easements will be secured by the end of the
year at which time the construction can begin. It is estimated that
this phase will take 4-6 months to complete.


Social Security Update

This summer many younger workers and seasonal employees may be tempted by offers to
work "under the table." They will find employers who agree to pay them directly, in cash, without
deducting income or Social Security taxes. In the short run, that may sound like a good deal. But in
the long run, it is foolish and will only hurt workers and their families.
Here's why.
First, it's illegal for your employer not to report your earnings to the Internal Revenue Service,
and it's illegal for you and your employer not to pay Social Security taxes on your earnings.
Not only do Social Security tax contributions build up future retirement benefits for workers
and their families, but they also ensure that workers are eligible for Social Security disability and
survivors benefit payments in the unfortunate event of injury or death.
Disability can happen to anyone at any age. For example, did you know that almost 3 in 10 of
today's 20-year-olds will become disabled before reaching age 67? Few people have long-term private
disability insurance, but workers who pay Social Security taxes have Social Security disability
insurance. People who have paid Social Security taxes for as little as one and one-half years and have
an injury or illness that will keep them off the job for a year or more could start receiving a monthly
disability check from Social Security. The average monthly disability benefit payment in 2006 for a
worker and his or her spouse and children is $1,571.
Also, it is important to understand that anyone who qualifies for Social Security disability
payments and remains disabled for two years will qualify for Medicare benefits. Today there are many
young people in their 20s who not only get a Social Security disability check but also qualify for
Medicare coverage.
With Social Security survivors benefits, you have the comfort of knowing your dependents
may be eligible for benefits when you die. Few of us want to think about it, but one in seven
Americans will die before reaching age 67. Social Security survivors benefits are paid monthly to the
dependents of a deceased worker. The average monthly survivors benefit payment in 2006 for a
widowed mother and two children is $2,074.
Today, disabled workers and their dependents account for 17 percent of Social Security
benefits paid, and survivors of deceased workers account for 14 percent. If you and your employer
aren't paying Social Security taxes, then you may not have that Social Security protection when you
need it. For more information, visit Social Security's website at www.socialsecurity.eov or call 1-800-
772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask for the publication How You Earn Credits.

Made Flesh
The Mark of the Beast
Continued from last week.
I, the son of man, say this man and
woman could see naturally; as well as
people see today, maybe better. If this
is true there are some eyes mentioned
in Gen. 3:7, that are not recognized by
most Bible readers. Adam and Eve had
no knowledge of wrong until their eyes
came open. These spiritual eyes came
open as they ate of the tree of
knowledge. Seeing both good and evil
gave them the choice to do the good
or to do the evil. Their innocent souls
and spirits were defiled by wrong
doing. The sin of transgression had
caught up with them.
Death and its power started when
their spiritual eyes came open. Let us
recognize the fact that since there was
not any other creature on earth at the
time, the darkness of the two humans
would not have made any difference as
far as.sin was concerned (being man
and wife). These two were one. I, the
son of man, say something happened
inside these two creatures. What was
it? They had come to the knowledge of
right and wrong. Here is where the
carnal mind comes into the man and
woman. The choice of the man brought
about the working of his flesh, his
thoughts, and his desires.
Human thinking took over. I, the
son of man, say as the natural fleshly
desire took over in the man and
woman, Satan moved into the presence
of them. "And the Lord God said unto
the serpent, because thou hast done
;his. thou art cursed above all cattle,
and above every beast of the field;
upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust
shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:"
(Gen 3:14)
How would you know what the
word enmity meant and how did it
work? How would you know this thing
called enmity was between the
woman's seed and the serpent's seed?
1, the son of man, say very few
people realize the serpent has a seed in
our time. Not very many people could
tell you what the serpent's seed is.
Adam did not have anything to do with
the conversation between the woman
and the serpent. He had nothing to do
with the enmity which was put
between the enmity of the woman and
the serpent.
God is dealing here with the one
who got caught in transgressionof His
work..The main reason she was caught
is, Eve was the conceiving side of the
picture. 1, the son of man\, say Satan's
cunningness enticed Eve so that she
could be like God. Think about it, how
many people want to be like God.

New Prospect Baptist News
It was good to be in God's house Sunday, hearing His word and
partaking of the good, Christian fellowship. Our choir did
extremely well, after which Bro. Billy did an equally fine job
delivering God's message, choosing Luke 23:38 as his text. Sunday
evening, we were blessed with a special song service, as Buck
Lewis and the Broken Stones shared some of their quality
Bluegrass Gospel music with us, displaying an impressive range of
talent singing and on the guitars, stand-up bass fiddle, mandolin,
and banjo. We're hoping they'll be back soon!
Our Vacation Bible School kicks off at NPBC on Saturday,
June 3rd, at 5:00 P. M., consisting of registration and lots of fun
for the children. There will be games, snow cones, a moonwalk,
hotdogs, ice cream, and prizes, so bring your children out and
enjoy the fun with them. The VBS classes will begin Sunday
evening, June 4th, and run through Friday, June 9th, beginning at
6:00 P. M. nightly, and Friday will wrap up the week as Family
Night. On Saturday, June 10th, there will be a Youth Rally at
Faith Baptist Church at 6:00 P. M., and a Florida Disaster Relief
Training session at Westside Baptist Church in Gainesville. The
Southern Baptist Convention will be held June 1 lth-14th.
We were very pleased to have visitors again Sunday and, as
always, welcome you back, as well as any other visitors. Hope
you have a good week; please remember to keep praying for those
on the church prayer lists, our military, and our nation's leaders.
May God bless you!

Calvary Temple News
The family of Calvary would like to request your prayers for
the upcoming services with Evangelist Braxton Hunter on Sunday
June 25, 2006 at 10:30 a.m. & 7:00 p.m. We believe that God has
something very special in mind for these services and it is
imperative that we yield to His will and purpose. We also
encourage you to join us for both of these services.
We also extend our appreciation for the many new people that
God is sending our way. We look forward to long, healthy, and
productive relationships for the Kingdom. If you are seeking a
home church Calvary would like to be that church.
New Believer Class will be completed on Sunday, June 4,
2006. Class will be extended for one lesson as we rehearse "The
Roman Road" of salvation. This will be fun as we play out roles.
In the fall of 2006 we will resume this Sunday evening class at the
request of those who have participated.
Kid's Church and Youth continue to progress wonderfully.
Kid's Church is under the direction and oversight of Sister Annie
Spurlin. Youth under the direction of Arthur and Linda Watkins. A
new "Play Area" is in the works for both our smaller children and
our older youth. Join us Monday Friday for our radio program
"A Voice From Calvary" at 6:00 p.m. daily on 93.1FM. At present
we are teaching on two subjects, "Anger & Bitterness," both which
will keep you out of God's perfect will. Prison ministry continues

support to individuals and
families in our community

support group, members have
an opportunity to express their
feelings and thoughts, as well

grief and how it impacts their
lives. Sharing is voluntary and
confidential.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"In A Moment"
I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at (in) the
last trump:
Let us continue the first part of a three part message which we began
last week, in a moment. In order to understand we must get our heads out
of the clouds and realize that angels have desired to see the things that you
and I are seeing today and cannot.
In the preceding message we wrote of the caterpillar that became a
butterfly. To all the outward appearance there is nothing happening, but
within the cocoon a change is taking place, the preparation for another life,
and when it is finished, out of that cocoon comes the manifestation of that
new life.
Romans 12:2 And not be conformed to this world: but be ye
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that
good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
There have been many messages on corruptible putting on
incorruption and mortal putting on immortality, but-Paul tells us that we
shall be transformed by the renewing of the mind. He says also, I beseech
you brethren by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living
sacrifice. We present them to Him for Transformation and only by the
renewing of the mind can this transformation take place. The old mind,
carnal and human it is, is always conformed to the weak and beggarly
elements of the world and we remain corruptible, mortal and unchanged.
But the mind of Christ, which is the new mind, is a transforming mind. It
renews not only the mind, but the body also.
Our bodies are important. They are made up of living cells. We are
their most highly organized form of matter in the world, and our body must
give birth to its own incorruption and immortality through the mind of
Christ, because our body is us.
There must be a consistent flow of generative fluid that will cause a
multiplying of cell-bodies which are totally immune to death in all its
many forms.
I Peter 1:23-25 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of
incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever. For
all flesh is as grass, and al glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass
withereth, and the flower there of falleth away: But the word of the Lord
endureth forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached
unto you.
John 1:14 And the word was made flesh.
Christ, the incorruptible seed (new species) in us will change our
bodies. He will stimulate every cell and atom to an alertness and
productivity in the bringing forth of an immortal chemical of life that will
be an antibody and also a plague, to the structure of the old species, which
is death.
2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest (our calling according to
His purpose and grace) by the appearance of our Savior Jesus Christ, who
hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light
through the gospel: Immortality is that which is natural: death is not
natural.
Acts 17:27-29 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel
after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: for in
Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own
poets have said, for we are also His offspring. For as much then as we are
the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto
gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
In the beginning man lived hundreds of years before the death process
became too much for him, and now we think we have lived unto a ripe old
age when we reach threescore and ten (70). There must be those who are
willing to go "far out", as some will undoubtedly say to them, and bring
this life to light.
Isaiah 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disnulled, and
your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge
shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. (Heb. A treading
down to it)
Verse 19. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for
morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be
a vexation only to understand the report. (when He shall make you to
understand doctrine.)

Bayonets are believed to have been invented by Basque
soldiers in the 17th century who stuck their knives at the
ends of their muskets after running out of gun powder on
the Bayonette Ridge.

Secret of Suwannee-
Chamber members, Suwannee Fire Department volunteers and
guests learned the "secret of Suwannee" at the May meeting of the
Suwannee River Chamber of Commerce. Frank Chapman,
associate professor at the University of Florida, Fisheries
Department, revealed that Suwannee has more sturgeons than any
place in the WORLD.thus the secret. Frank was invited to
Suwannee, in 1986 by the son of Archie Carr. Dr. Carr had studied
turtles all over the world, and wanted Frank to travel from
Columbia, South America to see sturgeon in Suwannee. Sturgeons
were over-fished, for both the meat and the caviar, thus are listed
as endangered species.



A r. -* .

USFWS
We know that sturgeon originally come from Russia, and lived
in colder waters, and Frank wondered why they were in the Gulf of
Mexico. The answer appears to be that the springs that feed the
River keep the temperatures cooler than the Gulf of Mexico, from
April until November. Another piece of the puzzle might be that
this part of the country was very sparsely populated and remote
thus providing a rugged environment. They have no bones
internally, only cartilage, but have bones on the exterior, much like
armor. They average 300 to 500 pounds here, whereas the Beluga
sturgeons weigh 3,000 to 4,000 pounds. One female provides 10-
20 containers of caviar at current retail price of $2800.00 per
container. Suwannee sturgeons travel up river and spawn, staying
about 9 months. They eat nothing, and become very docile, and
much smaller. When the waters cool in the Gulf of Mexico they
return and are ravenous. Their primary diet is meat, such as
shrimp.
Just last week Frank was joined by a film crew from National
Geographic Magazine., as there is much worldwide interest in this
fish. Frank refuses to admit they are a bit ugly, only they look
somewhat prehistoric. He and his team have caught and tagged
every single sturgeon in the Suwannee, a total of about 3,000.
Frank reported that ONLY in Florida is it illegal to farm-raise
sturgeon for retail sale. In his opinion this is only one of 3 viable
options for the future of the sturgeon. The others include doing
nothing, or stock them to get the female populations increased.
This could become a great sport fishing and economic boost to
areas adversely affected by the net ban, such as Dixie. Thanks to
Frank for taking time to share with us about his love for the
sturgeon.

Gator Hunters Get Longer Season

And Multiple Permits
At its February 2006 meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) approved changes to the
statewide alligator harvest program to offer alligator hunters a
longer season and a chance to buy multiple permits during this
year's hunts.
Since 1988, the FWC has offered these alligator hunts, which
provide a thrilling, hands-on hunting adventure unlike any other
hunting experience imaginable.
Starting this year, the season will include 41 additional hunt-
days and will run Aug. 15 to Nov. 1.
Hunters also will be able to purchase additional permits if
available, but they can purchase only one permit per transaction.
More than 4,000 alligator harvest permits will be available on a
first-come, first-served basis.
Sale of these permits begins 10 a.m. (EDT) June 15.
Applicants have their preference of applying at any county tax
collector's office, license agent (retail outlet that sells hunting and
fishing licenses), online at MyFWC.com/license or by calling
toll-free 1-888-HUNT FLORIDA (486-8356).
To purchase a permit, applicants must submit payment for an
alligator trapping license and two alligator-hide validation tags, or
provide proof of a valid alligator trapping license (must be valid
through Nov. 1) plus pay the fee for the two hide validation tags.
No other hunting licenses or permits are required.
The cost for a resident alligator trapping license and hide
validation tags is $272, and nonresidents pay $1,022. The cost
for additional permits is $62 regardless of residency.
An alligator trapping "agent" license is also available for
$52. This allows the license holder to assist a trapper in taking
alligators but only when in the presence of the permitted trapper.
To educate participants on the rules and regulations of the
hunts, the FWC offers a no-cost, three-hour training and
orientation program throughout the state. Alligator hunters are
not. required to attend, but first-time participants are strongly
encouraged to do so. Courses will be offered in July and August,
and all permit holders will receive, by mail, packages listing exact
dates and locations of these training sessions.
For more information on how to get involved in these
exciting alligator hunts, visit MyFWC.com/gators and click on
"Statewide Hunts."

FWC WEEKLY REPORT
May 12-18, 2006
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
NORTH CENTRAL REGION
CLAY COUNTY
May 10, Officer Alan Hofineister was dispatched to a boating
accident that occurred in Black Creek. Preliminary investigation
revealed that a 22-year-old Clay County man was operating a
personal watercraft (PWC) when it collided with the bridge fender
system of U.S. 17 at Black Creek. The operator sustained facial
injuries requiring surgery.
DIXIE COUNTY
May 12, Officers Darby Butler and Justin Allen were on foot
patrol when they came across a sign consistent with the use of a
wheelbarrow. The officers followed this sign to a small tidal creek
in a marsh area which led to the Gulf. From a concealed position,
they watched a man cast netting fish and placing them in a cooler.
The officers discovered the man had completely blocked off the
creek with a stop net. The man was issued citations for the illegal
stop net and failure to release live undersize redfish.
SUWANNEE COUNTY- COPS
Officer Matt Tyre attended a meeting with the Airboat
Association in Suwannee County. There were approximately 65
people in attendance and the main topic was airboat-muffling
requirements.
TAYLOR COUNTY
May 17, Officers Randy McDonald and Chad Albritton were
traveling on Highway 51 when they encountered a vehicle stopped
in the middle of the road, motor running, and headlights on. The
officers approached the vehicle and located a female driver, passed
out at the wheel, with a beer can in her hand. The officers
awakened the driver and immediately suspected a possible DUI.
The officers attempted to initiate field sobrieties to no avail. The
women advised the officers she was too drunk to complete any
tests. The female was arrested for DUI and'transported to jail
where she refused the breathalyzer.
May 16, FWC Officers Leonard Bailey and Randy McDonald
made two separate possession of cannabis cases while checking
area boat ramps. Both cases involved misdemeanor quantities and
both subjects were cited and released.
May 16, FWC Officer Chad Albritton was working the
Econfina River area, concentrating on the close of stone crab
season, when he conducted an inspection on a local commercial
crabber. During the inspection of the commercial vessel, Albritton
located a bucket of stone crab claws. A closer look at the claws
showed all the claws to be undersize. Albritton cited the fisherman
for possession of stone crab claws during the closed season.
UNION COUNTY
May 11, Officer Bret Gill was patrolling a local hunt club. At
approximately 10:30 p.m., Gill observed a vehicle displaying a
light into the woods. Gill approached the vehicle and conducted a
stop. The vehicle was occupied by two Baker County men who
stated they were hunting fox. Gill could hear dogs in the distance,
adding to the subject's statement. Gill then discovered their vehicle
contained two loaded firearms. Gill cited both subjects with
possession of gun and light and possession of a firearm while
hunting fox.

W Steinhatchee School's




Sports Initiatives
*' Exciting opportunities will welcome the students at
fSteinhatchee School this summer and fall as the new 2006-07
school year approaches. For students entering grades 3-8, the
school will conduct a Baseball and Basketball Camp. Utilizing
the brand new gymnasium, the Baseball Camp will be held
from Monday, June 19 through Friday, June 22 and the
Basketball Camp Monday, June 19 through Friday, June 22.
Camp day begins at 10:00 and ends at 1:00, with a light lunch
Principal Sylvia Ivey and plenty of water and Gatorade provided for students each
day, at no charge.
There are no fees to participate in the camps, just come ready to learn skills such as stretching,
cardio warm-ups, safety tips, good sportsmanship, foundational skill building (throwing, fielding,
catching), focused drills, and scrimmaging. Registration forms are available in the front office at
Steinhatchee School. Call 498-3303 for more details.
The two sports camps will help usher in the new PE program at Steinhatchee School this
coming school year, which will focus on developing foundational skills aligned with the Florida
Sunshine State Standards at each grade level for health and physical education. The new PE
teacher/athletic director for the sports initiatives will implement a comprehensive curriculum and
instructional program that will enable the students to participate in any sports program with a high
level of confidence.
Laptops for kids! Yes, there will be a laptop computer distributed to each 7'h and 8th grader
attending Steinhatchee Middle School this coming year. Taylor County School District received
an EETT grant to fund the district LIFT 21 program (Laptop Initiative for Teaching 21st century
skills). This project is an effort to reshape the nature of instruction and learning this environment
and will provide students and teachers with full-time use of laptop, both in school and at home.
The goal of LIFT 21 is to develop a model for enhancing student achievement among middle
school students by implementing a 1:1 laptop-computing environment. Classroom and homework
assignments will be completed utilizing the laptops. Teachers will attend 80 hours of inservice
training this summer, with continued technical assistance throughout the school year.
By the beginning of the 2006-2007 school year both the 7"' and 8th grade classrooms will be
equipped with a digital projector and screen, digital video cameras, color laser printer, scanner,
and Microsoft SharePoint for classroom collaboration. The classrooms themselves will be
redesigned to facilitate laptop use.
The laptop initiative will give the Taylor County School District an unprecedented opportunity
to reform teaching practices by moving away from teacher centered, textbook driven methods to
student centered, project based learning. The laptop enables students to become active learners,
researching, exploring areas of interest, collaborating with others across the room and across the
globe.
Sylvia Ivey has been re-assigned as principal at Steinhatchee School, and is already
transitioning from Taylor County Elementary School in Perry. Mrs. Ivey is the wife of Pastor Ed
Ivey of the Church of God and resides in Cross City. She served as principal of Steinhatchee
School when the Ivey first moved to Cross City to pastor in 1997. Mrs. Ivey was responsible for
merging together the two elementary schools in Perry in 2002-2003, and served as principal of
TCES for the past four years. She is excited about returning to Steinhatchee School to implement
scientific research-based academic programs and organized sports programs to help motivate
students to be in school, be successful and become better prepared to enter the world of work. Mrs.
Ivey may be reached by phone or email: 352-498-3303, Sylvia.Ivey@tavlor.kl2.fl.us.

"'he
Kaleidoscope
Story Cafe"
Tasty tales will be on stage
when the Kaleidoscope
Storytellers perform at the Dixie
County Public Library on
Wednesday June 7, 2006 at 10:00
a.m.
The Kaleidoscope Storytellers
are Terry Deer and Suzie Shaeffer,
story dramatists from the Daytona
Beach area who tour Florida each
summer using puppets, poetry,
creative dramatics, tandem
storytelling and audience
participation to delight and
involve their listeners. This
summer they are wearing "story
chef' aprons and hats-perfect
attire for serving up a pot full of
fun, action-packed stories in a
production they call "The
Kaleidoscope Story Cafe."
Former children's librarians,
Deer and Shaeffer specifically
design their lively summer
performances to support the
Florida Library Youth Program's
goal of encouraging children to
become lifelong readers and
library users. "We were delighted
when we heard that the state-wide
theme for 2006 would be Book
Feast," says Shaeffer, "because so
many of the folk tales we love are
about food and feasting and we
felt a cafe would be a fun setting
for introducing these stories to
children."
A distinctive feature of every
Kaleidoscope show is the
inclusion of audience members,
whose contributions may even
determine how a story turns out.
"We try to involve the children
every way we can," says Deer.
"They sing, chant, provide sound
effects, become some of the
characters in our stories, and
interact with our puppet partners.
This summer, audience volunteers
will even help choose what tale is
next on the Cafe's menu by
dipping into our pot of stories."
Laughter, songs, puppet
pandemonium, and tasty tales-
they'll all be served up at The
Kaleidoscope Story Cafe!
For more information, contact
Cassie Selleck at 386-294-3858 or
800-729-0529 or the Dixie County

Picture left to right are DCHS Business Education Instructor Carol
Petrone, Bank of America Branch Manager Debbie Dembo, and Dixie
Education Foundation President Arthur Bellot.
Prior to the 2005-2006 School year ending the Business
Education Department at Dixie County High School received
Financial Literacy Grant in the amount of $4,000.00 from the Bank
of America.
This grant awarded by Bank of America is intended to cover all
aspects of personal finance, which is not taught in the normal high
school curriculum. These funds will be distributed through the
Dixie County Education Foundation and will be used to purchase
checkbooks for the students and enroll them in the Stock Market
Game. They will be required to create a career portfolio
throughout the year, which is designed to have real-world
applications; selecting a career, perform a mock interview to obtain
a position in the field chosen, perform job shadowing and in return
will be issued paychecks from the Business Teacher, Mrs. Petrone.
The students will open checking accounts through Mrs. Petrone
to deposit their paychecks into, and then will be required to pay all
personal bills (housing, automotive, utilities, food, clothing, etc.)
out of that account. They will also need to keep accurate banking
and tax records, file income tax, and pay property taxes etc., just as
if they will have to do when they enter the workforce for real.
The objective is to teach the students what their financial
responsibilities will be, and how hard it can be to save money if we
live beyond the means of our paychecks.
Students will also have the opportunity to compete in the On-
Line Stock Market Game. Once enrolled, the students are provided
a $100,000 account to invest as they see fit. This game teaches the
students how our stock market works and how they can increase
investments for retirement.
"We would like to thank Bank of America for supporting our
business program and our youth," stated Petrone.
Who knows, we may find Dixie's Donald Trump in next years'
class! Good luck!

NO TICE OF FIRST PUBLIC HEARING
The Dixie County Commission is considering applying to the
Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA) for a 2006 Small
Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) of up to
$750,000. These funds must be used for one of the following
purposes:


1. To Benefit Low and Moderate income persons; or
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or
blight; or
3. To meet other community development needs of recent
origin having a particular urgency because existing
conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the
health and welfare of the community and where other
financial resources are not available to meet such
,needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in
the areas of HOUSING, NEIGHBORHOOD, COMMERCIAL REVITALIZATION, OR ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT and include such improvement activities as acquisition of
real property, loans to private-for-profit business, purchase of
machinery and equipment, construction of infrastructure,

conservation. Additional information regarding the range of activities
that may be undertaken will be provided at the public meeting.

FOR EACH ACTIVITY THAT IS PROPOSED, AT LEAST 70% OF THE FUNDS MUST BENEFIT LOW AND
MODERATE INCOME PERSONS.

In developing an application for submission to DCA, Dixie County must
plan to minimize displacement of persons as a result of planned CDBG
activities. In addition, Dixie County is required to develop a plan to
assist displaced persons.

The public hearing to receive citizen views concerning the community's
economic and community development needs will be held at the Dixie
County Courthouse Commission Courtroom on Thursday, June 15, 2006,
beginning at 6:30 p.m. For information concerning the public hearing

The Dixie Soil and Water Conservation District (DSWCD)
honored the Poster Contestants of 2nd and 3rd graders at Old
Town Elementary School for participating in the 2006 Stewardship
Week of April 25 May 5. The theme this year for Stewardship
Week was "Water Wise". The Awards ceremony started with
Dixie SWCD Supervisor Nicole Spencer who reported what the
DSWCD does and how to be "Water Wise". Mrs. Spencer
presented the awards to the following students: 1st Place-Makenze
Robson who won an Ice Cream Party for her classroom, 2nd Place-
Eric Christiansen, 3rd Place-Bailey Roux, each contestant won a
ribbon and T-Shirt with the Stewardship Week logo. The 1st and
2nd Place Posters went on to the Association of Florida
Conservation District Contest which was held in Baker County this
year on May 9,.2006 where each won a participant ribbon.
"Water Wise" Water is vital to our life. Water makes up; more
than 60% of our body, and about 75% of our brain. Water helps
make possible our every movement, thought, and feeling. All our
food and most other products we use require water. It takes about
4,000 gallons of water to grow a bushel of corn, and about 11,000
gallons for a bushel of wheat. We sometimes take water for
granted. But this precious resource may become increasingly
scarce as we place more demands on fresh water supplies. To
ensure future water supplies, we need to learn about water
resources, and plan to use them carefully.

Rep Will Kendrick Receives

Legislator Of The Year Award
State Representative Will Kendrick (D- Carrabelle) was
presented with the Legislator of the Year Award by the Florida
Greyhound Association at their annual meeting in Jacksonville on
Sunday.
As sponsor of legislation this year for greyhound owners and
breeders, Representative Kendrick was recognized for his efforts
to bring the same fairness in purses and awards to the greyhound
industry that is currently enjoyed in the thoroughbred and jai alai
industries.
Jack Cory, who represents the Florida Greyhound
Association said, "We are proud of the
endeavors put forth by Representative Kendrick on behalf of
the greyhound industry. He has been a champion for equal
treatment under the law."
Prior to the beginning of the 2006 Session, Representative
Kendrick toured greyhound farms in his district to gain insight
into the workings of and the importance of maintaining an
industry that provides a livelihood for the owners and breeders
that he represents in North Florida.

We had a great day Sunday
when the Georgely Society

riand invite anyone to come and
enjoy learning history.

.out Tuesday, they got a new

'having Sgt. Gore out to see the

We pray for all the

and hope they have a great trip.
Lunch was squash and

casserole, and cooked as well
'as fried but all was good,
especially Betty's coconut pie.

Avoid Bites And Stings This Spring
Dogs like the spring weather, too. Cooped up all winter, they
want to play, now that it's pretty outside. But dogs can present a
hazard. Last year, more than 3,000 letter carriers were attacked
while on the job delivering the nation's mail. And that number
pales in comparison to the 4.7 million Americans nearly half of'
them children, bitten by dogs all across the country.
What can you do to ensure that your dog doesn't injure
someone? First, be sure that your pet is always properly restrained.
Make sure your fences are secure and locks are in place. Make sure
that your children understand that your dog should not be allowed
out, except while on a leash controlled by a responsible family
member. And make sure they know how to keep themselves safe
around animals, because even your neighbor's usually friendly dog
might bite.
Bees, wasps and hornets like warm weather too. They often
make nests in cozy places, such as. mail receptacles, porch
overhangs, and flowerbeds. Thousands of people are allergic,
making a bee sting a potential life-threatening event.
What can you do to stop bee stings? Periodically check your
mailbox, the eaves and overhangs of your house, and your
flowerbeds, and remove any insect nests promptly.
Help protect your letter carrier and have a wonderful and safe
spring.

Many friends and family members made the trip to Maine to participate in this Naval tradition.
CDR Wheeler was taken by surprise when Mrs. Angie Bush presented him with a proclamation from
the Town of Cross (Cit proclaiming May 12, 2006 as a special day of recognition for Commander
William W. Wheeler Ill. CDR Wheeler was very humbled and stated "to have the City of Cross City
do this was an absolute surprise. I can't tell you how appreciative I am that the great Americans in
Dixie County would do this. This is an absolute honor and I'll humbly accept it as a tribute to all the
service men and women from Cross City and Dixie County that are engaged around the world in the
Global War on Terror."
The same expression of appreciation was expressed when CDR Wheeler received the resolution
from the Dixie County County Commission later that night at a Bar-B-Q held in his honor.
