Lightning Strikes Start Wild Fires
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Low humidity levels and lack of rain in recent weeks laid the foundation for dry conditions
throughout the county and creating fuel for potential fires. Memorial Day weekend area firefighters
found themselves not enjoying a day on the river, but fighting three separate fires off the Hines
Highway that were caused by lightning strikes.
Florida Division of Forestry (DOF), Forest Area Supervisor for the Cross City Station Larry
Grubbs stated that his crews as well as crews from Dixie's Fire Departments worked for four days to
contain and eventually put out the fires. "We were very lucky, it got pretty intense at one point with
winds picking up and no chance of rain in sight," Grubbs stated.
Grubbs noted that a total of 18 acres were burned. He gave credit to the crews from the DOF and
Dixie County for pulling together to put the wild fires out. "I am very proud of our working
relationship with Dixie County," stated Grubbs.
Late last week the DOF received a number of calls concerning smoke off 55A. Grubbs noted
that the smoke came from a legal control burn. "We didn't have any problems with the burn other
than the heavy smoke that crossed over the roadway which cleared within a few hours."
This week the fire threat is "moderate", however there are "red flag warnings" which mean we
need to keep our guard up and be aware of the likelihood of more wild fires flaring up as we are
getting into our thunderstorm season. As of this week burn permits are still being issued, but are
restricted. If you need more information on burning or conditions, you can call the local DOF
Station at 352-498-1380.


Public Comment Sought For Middle

Suwannee River MFLs


The Suwannee River Water
Management District will host a
meeting on Monday, June 12, to
present information and to receive
public comment on the setting of
minimum flows and levels (MFLs)
for the Middle Suwannee River and
springs.
The meeting will be held from
7 to 9 p.m. at the Branford
Elementary School, 26801 State
Road 247 in Branford.
Florida Statutes require that
MFLs water levels and flows
designed to prevent significant
harm to water resources -be
established for water bodies. The
District already has established
MFLs for the. Lower Suwannee.
River, Fanning Spring, and Madison
Blue Spring, and is now beginning
the same process for the Middle
Suwannee.
MFLs will help in the water
supply, planning process and in
determining water availability for
consumptive use purposes. In
addition, they will provide guidance
in making water use and permitting
decisions; ensure sufficient water


resources for the public and ecosystems; protect wetlands,
fish and wildlife habitat; and provide protection of water
resources for navigation and recreation.


26.5 Million VA Electronic

Records Stolen
Statement from the Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has recently learned
that an employee, a data analyst, took home electronic data from
the VA, which he was not authorized to do. This behavior was in
violation of our policies. This data contained identifying
information including names, social security numbers, and dates of
birth for up a 26.5 million veterans and some spouses, as well as
some disability ratings. Importantly, the affected data did not
include any of VA's electronic health records nor any financial
information. The employee's home was burglarized and this data
was stolen. The employee has been placed on administrative leave
pending the outcome of an investigation.
Appropriate law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and
the VA Inspector General's office, have launched full-scale
investigations into this matter. Authorities believe it is unlikely the
perpetrators targeted the items because of any knowledge of the
data contents. It is possible that they remain unaware of the,
information that they possess or of how to make use of it.
However, out of an abundance of caution, VA is taking all possible
steps to protect and inform our veterans.
VA is working with members of Congress, the news media,
veterans service organizations, and other government agencies to
help ensure that those veterans and their families are aware of the
situation and of the steps they ma.\ take to protect themselves from
misuse of their personal information. VA will send out individual
notification letters to veterans to every extent possible. Veterans
can also go to www.firstgov.gov to get more information on this
matter. This website is being sent to handle increased web traffic.
Additionally, working with other government agencies, VA has set
up a manned call center that veterans may call to get information
about this situation and learn more about consumer identity
protections. That toll free number is 1-899-FED INFO (333-4636).
The call center will operate from 8 am to 9 pm (EDT), Monday-
Saturday as long as it is needed. The call center will be able to
handle up to 20,000 calls per hour.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs R. James Nicholson has briefed
the Attorney General and the Chairman of the Federal Trade
Commission, and co-chairs of the President's Identity Theft Task
Force. Task Force members have already taken actions to protect
the affected veterans, including working with the credit bureaus to
help ensure that veterans receive the free credit report they are
entitled to under the law. Additionally, the Task Force has met to
coordinate the comprehensive Federal response, recommended
further ways to protect affected veterans and increase safeguards to
prevent the reoccurrence of such incidents.
VA's mission to serve and honor our nation's veterans is one
we take very seriously and the 235,000 VA employees are deeply
saddened by any concern or anxiety this incident may cause our
veterans and their families. We appreciate the service our veterans
have given their country and we are working diligently to protect
them from any harm as a result of this incident

Sheriff's

Office Warns

Of Possible

Phone Scam
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last week the Dixie
County Sheriff's office
received a call concerning a
possible phone scam. An
investigation into the call has
led law enforcement to "get the
word out" about the deceptive
phone calls.
The caller states that he/she
are from the National medical
office out of New York and
that President Bush is taking
$379.00 out of her social
security check next month and
that he needs her bank account
number in order to stop the
withdrawal from happening.
If you get one of these
calls, please contact the DCSO
at 498-1220.


2006 Hurricane


Season Underway...



Are You Prepared?
By Terri Langford Staff
Writer
The National Oceanidc &
Atmospheric Administiration
(NOAA) are predicting another
very active hurricane season,
June 1 November 30, for 2006
with 13 to 16 named storms, with
8 to 10 becoming hurricanes, of
which 6 could become Categr r)
ai S3's or higher. Experts are also
Se predicting that our northern
neighbors will be a target for
c these storms this year. Regardless
of how many or who will get
"hit", federal, state and local
government agencies are urging
everyone to be prepared!
Florida recently held their
Twelve Days of Hurricane
Preparedness and Sales Tax
Exemption May 21 through June
1", hoping to lure Floridians into
preparing for hurricanes and
other disasters.
Dixie Emergency Services
Director Chad Reed noted that
recently Dixie emergency
personnel attended aA state-wide
hurricane exercise, utilizing
This picture of Hurricane Katrina was taken by NOAA as it began it lessons learned in the past two
trek across the Gulfto the Panhandle. years. "We encourage all
residents of Dixie to have an
emergency action plan," stated Reed. "You need to be prepared for five days; that means five days
of food, water, medications, etc," Reed added. It is important to remember that while federal, state
and local emergency agencies will be there to provide assistance after the storm, it is up to
individuals to prepare for conditions prior to that aid reaching them.
There are a number of websites that you can visit to help you with your "Disaster Plan';
National Weather Service (www.nws.noaa.gov/), NOAA (www.noaa:gov), and Federal Emergency
Service Administration-FEMA (www.fema.gov). They all give the following advice:
-Discuss the type of hazards that could affect your family. Know your home's vulnerability to
storm surge, flooding and wind.
-Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain
circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community.
-Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet. These should be measured jn tens
of miles rather than hundreds of miles.
-Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point
of contact.
-Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate.
-Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and
when to call 911.
-Check your insurance coverage flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners
insurance.
-Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a Disaster Supply Kit.
-Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to replace its battery every 6 months, as you do with
your smoke detectors.
-Take First Aid, CPR and disaster preparedness classes.
Preparing for the worse is the responsible thing to do and praying to be spared once again is the
hope of everyone that is potentially in the path of one of Mother Nature's most awesome displays of
strength and destruction.

Apologizing for the wrong reasons
A recent news conference involving President George W. Bush
and British Prime Minister Tony Blair seemed to be going well
:enough until our President started apologizing. Not to say that a
well thought-out apology or two might not have been in order, but
let us consider what Mr. Bush apologized for.
He apologized for "talking tough" in the wake of some early
success in the war in Iraq. "Bring it on!" he said, offering what
appeared to be a challenge to the terrorists. And of course, they did
and they still are. But the point is, does Mr. Bush suppose the
terrorist cells in the Middle East would have folded their tents and
gone home, had he said something like, "Hey, can't we all just get
along?"
Next, he apologetically referred to the Abu Grab prison scandal
as the worst thing that happened during the Iraq campaign. Really?
The Abu Grab scandal amounted to some misbehavior by a few US
military personnel who "humiliated" Muslim prisoners. Not much
worse than the fraternity/sorority initiations that happen at some of
our colleges. All right, nobody likes to be humiliated, but it sure
beats getting your head sawed off and that's what the terrorists do
to our people. Mr. Bush might at least have drawn the comparison,
rather than caving in to one of the liberal media's favorite talking
points.
Here's what I'd like to have heard the President apologize for:
Not talking tough to the Mexican government, the limp-wristed
liberals who want open borders and voting rights for illegals, and
the fat cat CEO's who want cheap Mexican labor.
I'd like to have heard something on the order of; "We have
laws, and they're going to be enforced. People who are here
illegally are breaking those laws and will be treated accordingly, as
will the people who employ them. We also have borders, and they,
too, will be enforced. If that takes building a wall along the
Mexican border from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, we
can do that, too."
Incidentally, for those who blather about how we "couldn't"
build a wall between US and Mexico, the Great Wall of China was,
approximately 4,000 miles long, twice the distance between the
Pacific and the Gulf along the Mexican border, and the
enterprising Chinese got it done over 2,000 years ago, when
construction-related technology was not quite what it is today.
President Bush ought to understand that his political and
ideological opponents will beat him up over Abu Grab for as long
as he's willing to discuss the subject. The US military personnel
who were involved were violating policy and have been severely
dealt with, and that should settle it. If the New York Times and its
multiple clones choose to re-run the pictures every six months in
hopes of undermining the war effort, perhaps Mr. Bush should be
pointing out that they're giving aid and comfort to the enemy and
that, in saner times, that sort of thing was called treason.
The Army Corps of Engineers has since apologized for its
failure to sufficiently strengthen the levees in New Orleans before
Hurricane Katrina, and I rather suspect that this apology might
have been motivated by the White House. In any event, it's not the
Army Corps of Engineers that needs to apologize. Several years
ago, they were about to strengthen the levees sufficiently to have
withstood Katrina, but a gaggle of environmentalists, I believe led
by the Sierra Club, went to court and blocked the project. I'd say
that leaves the enviro-whackos holding the bag.
Apologizing when you're wrong is noble. Apologizing when
you're right is just plain stupid.






More pencils are made in the U.S. than in any other
country.


Letter To The Editor
Dear Friends,
There comes a time in life when you have to make decisions
on what is best for your family and what you are happy in doing.
After much thought, discussion with family-friends and prayer, I
have decided to withdraw my name as a candidate for election to
the Clerk of the Circuit Court for Dixie County.
I appreciate the encouragement and kind words I have received
over the past few months and during the time I served as your
Clerk. I am currently serving you as your Emergency Services
Director, a position I feel at home with and doing the what I love
- helping the people of Dixie County in their time of need.
I look forward to serving you in that position and will continue
to need your assistance as we move the Department of Emergency
Services for Dixie County into the forefront as a leader in the
State of Florida.
Again, Holly, C.J. and Caden and I thank you for your
encouragement. If there is anything that I can do for you, please
do not hesitate to contact me at the Emergency Services Office at
(352) 498-3312 or at home (352) 498-7621.
Sincerely,
Chad A. Reed.


(NAPS)-Quitting smoking
is hard. Quitting smoking on
your own without the support
of family, friends and co-work-
ers is even harder.
According to a recent sur-
vey of more than 400 ciga-
rette smokers, smokers feel
significant pressure from fam-
ily or friends to quit smoking
(72 percent). Nearly half (49
percent) have felt judged for
failing to quit smoking.
Unfortunately, the pressure
to quit and fear of failure might
impact a smoker's quit at-
tempt. The survey, conducted
by Harris Interactive, re-
vealed that more than two in
five smokers (44 percent)
wouldn't want to share their
desire/attempt to quit with
others in case they failed, and
a similar proportion (46 per-
cent) has in fact secretly tried
to quit without telling anyone.
Still, for the millions of
smokers who want to quit,
there are ways to increase
chances of success.
"Nicotine replacement ther-
apies, such as nicotine gums,
are clinically proven to help
smokers quit," says Matthew
Carpenter, Ph.D., a smoking
cessation expert and research
psychologist at the Medical
University of South Carolina.
"For years, however, smok-
ers have complained that the
taste of the gum was a bar-
rier to complying with the
dosing regimen."
The Harris poll also
showed that a better-tasting
gum could be just the ticket
to finally kicking the habit,
by helping to address the
compliance issue by making
the chewing experience more
enjoyable. To help improve
compliance, Nicorette stop
smoking gum launched Fresh
Mint in 2005 and recently
introduced another great-
tasting flavor, Fruit Chill.
Similar in texture to confec-
tionary gums, Nicorette Fruit
Chill has a crispy coating
that releases a burst of fruit
flavor with a cool mint fin-
ish, providing a surprisingly
refreshing chewing experi-
ence. The sugar-free gum also
contains fast, flexible crav-
ing-fighting medicine that
reduces nicotine withdrawal
Nicotine replacement therapy,
such as nicotine gum, is clin-
ically proven to help smokers
quit. It can help satisfy the
body's physical need for nico-
tine so smokers can focus on
breaking their smoking habit.
symptoms, including crav-
ings that make attempts to
quit smoking so difficult.
"There are two elements to
smoking addiction-the crav-
ing for nicotine and the
habit-and both must be
addressed to increase the
chances of successfully quit-
ting," Dr. Carpenter explains.
"Nicotine replacement ther-
apy, like the gum, can help
satisfy the body's physical
need for nicotine, so smokers
can focus on breaking their
smoking habit."
While the only reason to
quit that matters to smokers
(and their family and friends)
is the one that makes them
actually stop smoking, the sur-
vey also showed that nearly
one in two smokers would be
persuaded to quit if their doc-
tor told them their health was
in danger (48 percent), and a
majority also indicated that
quitting would be easier if they
had the support of others.
Fortunately, for the mil-
lions of smokers who are
thinking of quitting and their
loved ones, there is new hope
and help. The Nicorette Fruit
Chill Million, the largest quit-
smoking challenge ever from
the gum, strives to encour-
age 1 million smokers to
make the commitment to
quitting. It offers smokers
and, loved ones quit tools,
resources and support to help
make their quit attempts suc-
cessful, and as an added
incentive, offers participants
the chance to win $1 million.

Dixie County Rotary Club Receives

Awards At District Conference
Four Rotarians from the Dixie County Rotary Club were on hand at the District 6940
Conference, held in Panama City the last weekend in April and were proud to bring home several
awards earned by the local club this year. Rotarians Anne Engers, Fred Koberlein, Ray and Anne
Hodges attended the conference.
The club, with the help of the Dixie County
Advocate, received a District Public Relations
Merit Award. The Dixie County Advocate has
been the club's chief source of publicity in the
community and many of the articles featured in
the Advocate were highlighted at the club's
display at conference. President Anne Hodges a i, ,'
commends the Advocate for the excellent "
public service coverage provided by newspaper W..
and especially appreciates the efforts of Terri n .
and Sue in keeping the community posted and -
informed about Rotary news. ,
Several of the awards were especially '.-.
meaningful as they were the results of _i'u'.
community involvement: The completion of the L-R: Dixie Rotary President Anne Hodges and
Teddy Bear Project, the County wide Baby Terri Langford Representing the Advocate Staff
Shower for the New Life Pregnancy and
Resource Center each earned Community Service Merit Awards. The Dictionary Project for Dixie
County Third Graders earned the club honorable mention for both the District Vocational Service
Merit Award and Community Service Merit Award.
The club received the District Foundation Merit Award and recognition as a Sustaining Member
Club. These recognition indicate that the club has given more than $ 100 per member to the Rotary
Foundation.
The club received a District Membership Development Merit Award for meeting the district's
pro rata growth goal of at least one net new member.
All of these awards together put the club in the running for a medal of honor and the club
proudly earned a Silver Medal for all of its efforts in the 2005-2006 year.
Currently, the club is working on the Shelter Box Project. A shelter box is a self contained 49
gallon box (The Shelter Box ) with a 10 person tent, 10 sleeping bags, water purification supplies for
3 months for a family of 10, plastic water containers, 2 sets of basic eating and cooking utensils,
flashlights and batteries, trenching tool, rope, ponchos, tool kit and multi fueled cook stove. Once
packed, each Shelter Box is sealed and banded for transit and security, and numbered for tracking.
Those given by Rotary clubs are marked with the-Rotary Emblem. The boxes are stored in Cornwall,
England. reads to ship at a moment's notice in the event of a disaster in any part of the world.
Following last year's Tsunami, Shelter Boxes were there. Once the Dixie County Rotary Club
completesjits purchase, the box will be ready to ship when needed; once shipped the club will know
where it was delivered. Rotary makes a difference in the community and around the world.
As part of Scholarship night at the Dixie County High School, the Dixie County Rotary Club
presented $ 800 scholarships to 3 of the students who participated during the year in the Rotary
Student Guest Program. After attending Rotary meetings for one month, the student guest presented
a program on the topic of his/her choice. Rotarians were informed about various topics with
excellent presentations by the students. This year's scholarship recipients were Sarah Durham,
Daniel Locke and Tearra Owens. Rotary congratulates all the Student Guest Participants.

Groups Petition Florida

On Behalf Of Imperiled Wildlife


Today, conservation and
animal welfare groups from
Florida and around the nation,
including The Humane Society
of the United States, Defenders
of Wildlife, In Defense of
Animals, National
Environmental Trust,
Environmental Defense, Save
the Manatee Club, Animal
Welfare Institute, The Ocean
Conservancy, the Florida
Chapter of the Sierra Club, and
the Sea Turtle Survival
League, announced they were
filing a legal petition with the
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) urging the state to
revise its imperiled species
classification system. Using
what the petitioners say is a
flawed system, the FWC has
already downlisted the red-
cockaded woodpecker despite
opposition from many
scientists. If the current
classification system is not
changed, the groups fear that
many of Florida's at-risk
species, such as the manatee,
northern right whale, Florida
panther, and Florida black bear
could suffer the same fate as
the woodpecker, resulting in
less protection and misleading
the public into thinking these
species have recovered.
Florida is rapidly being
developed, increasing the
threats to wildlife and making
not only survival, but also the
state's goal of endangered
species recovery, an enormous
and difficult challenge.
According to the U.S. Census
Bureau, in five years Florida
will surpass New York in
population,making it the third
most populous state in the
nation.
In 1999 the FWC
modified its classification
system to incorporate the
listing criteria of the World
Conservation Union (IUCN), a
world authority on endangered
species, except for one critical
difference, the groups say.
Modifications were made in
2005 but the changes failed to
fix the major flaw. The FWC
did not properly align the
IUCN's risk categories with
the IUCN's category names
and definitions. Therefore, the
IUCN's "Critically
Endangered" category became
the FWC's "Endangered"
category. The IUCN's
"Endangered" category
became FWC's "Threatened"
category. The IUCN's third
category of "Vulnerable," is
considered the FWC's
"Species of Special Concern."
A species losing nearly 30% of
its population over ten years

probably would not even make
it onto the "Species of Special
Concern" list.
Until the FWC adopts a
classification system that
matches IUCN's or develops a
new system that adequately
protects wildlife from habitat
loss, the groups want the state
agency to delay any species'
reclassifications that
recommend a lesser status of
imperilment.
Manatees, injured and
killed by human activity each
year especially from boat
strikes are presently listed as
"Endangered" under both
federal and state law.
However, after a state review
was conducted using the
present flawed classification
system, the FWC is set to
downlist manatees to
"Threatened" status in June.
State biologists have said the
manatee population could
decrease by half in the next 45
years from rising threats to its
long-term survival. "If the
FWC had actually adopted the
IUCN's classification system,
the manatee would continue to
meet the criteria for
'Endangered' status," said
Patrick Rose, Director of
Government Relations for
Save the Manatee Club.
The groups asked that the
FWC's decision to uplist the
gopher tortoise and other
species whose risk of
extinction is rising, not be
delayed. "Since the gopher
tortoise meets the exceedingly
high threshold for upgrading in
the state's current
classification system, it is
clearly in need of greater
conservation attention," said
Laurie Macdonald, Florida
Director of Defenders of
Wildlife. "The tortoises'
upland habitat is quickly being
converted to development
around the state. Thousands of
tortoises have been entombed
below ground as subdivisions
and shopping malls cover them
over."
As an example of one of
the criteria, under the current
classification system a species
would have to undergo, or be
at risk of undergoing, at least
an 80% decline in its
population in order to be listed
as "Endangered." "For slow-
maturing species, such as sea
turtles that take up to 35 years
to reach reproductive age,
recovering a population that
has declined by 80% would be
extremely difficult. Animals
such as these warrant full
protection long before an
arbitrary 80% threshold is
reached; by then the situation


would be critical, and saving
species in emergency
situations is nearly
impossible," said
David Godfrey, Executive
Director of the Sea Turtle
Survival League.
The classification system
was created to guide the
management efforts of the
state in order to conserve and
recover imperiled species. "As
species like the manatee are
reclassified to a less imperiled
status before their populations
have actually recovered, state
funding for research,
management, and law
enforcement will likely be
directed elsewhere, preventing
full recovery," said Martha
Collins, attorney for the
groups. "Many of Florida's
species will be downlisted or
even delisted, not because their
biological status has changed,
but simply because the listing
criteria used by the FWC has
changed. All we are asking
through our Petition is for the
FWC to reconsider their listing
criteria and afford Florida's
imperiled species the proper
protections they deserve."

The Word

Made Flesh
The Mark of the Beast.
"...God commanded the man,
saying, of every tree of the Garden
thou may freely eat: but of the tree of
knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt
not eat of it: for in the day that thou eat
thereof thou shalt surely die." (Gen.
2:16-17) 1, the son of man, say this
commandment was given to the man
before the woman (rib). was ever taken
out of him. This was the first
commandment ever given to man: do
not eat of the tree of knowledge of
good and evil.
What was the reason God did not
want His creatures to eat of this tree?
God knew when man ate of it, his eyes
would come open and he would know
both good and evil. As we approach
the making of a woman for the wife of
Adam and her listening to the voice of
the Serpent, watch for the coming in of
the mark that causes man to transgress
God's laws. That was the channel
through which sin entered into the
man, and death came in sin. (Romans
5:12).
I, the son of man, say when Adam
was in the Garden, he was absolutely
in the will of God. He could hear
God's voice. I want you to notice:
Adam was taken out of the very dust
itself, not out of the ground. Watch
closely, you will see the word dust
take on a different meaning than just
normal fine substance blown around
on the ground. I want you to see the
spiritual side of this male and female
when they were created and when they
were formed. There is a difference.
Before man was formed in and on the
seventh day (look closely at the
scriptures), he was created in six days,
then formed on the seventh day. 1, the
son of man, say the best thing you ever
did in your life was to get busy
working for God. The harder you work
for God, the more you can rest in His
spirit. All you have to do is let Him
talk to you. He will tell you what to do.
At the time of formation
everything was to be finished because
it was the seventh day, and from that
time everything was to be finished.
This was the last day of the week the
day we call Sunday. When this river
parted into four heads, Gen. 2:10, says
this river went out of Eden to water the
Garden and from thence it was parted
and became into four heads. It split
into four heads after it left the Garden
of Eden.These four river heads and
their meaning must not be ignored by
Bible readers. I, the son of man, say
we have four rivers to come out of one
river which came through the Garden
to water the Garden. Now let us look at
the one commandment and that is,
:Don't eat of the tree of knowledge of
Good and Evil." The day you eat of the
tree of knowledge of good and evil, the
day you eat of it (in that day), thou
shalt surely die. Continued next week.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"In The Twinkling Of An Eye"
In the twinkling of an eye.
I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these premises, dearly beloved, let us
cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and.spirit, perfecting holiness in the
fear of God.
Why does God want us clean in spirit and flesh? 2 Corinthians 6:16 As God
hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them;
Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the
tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his
: people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Now spirit, as we have learned, means the eye, so in twinkling the eye it is
lubricated and substance is washed out. If God is going to dwell and walk in us, the
spirit (eye) must be clean of all the filthiness therein. If not, God in us will be blind.
Matthew 7:3-5 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy
brother, let me pull out the mote of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own
eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy
brother's eye.
Remember, the eye is the spirit so He is not speaking of pulling something out
of the physical eye, but He is speaking or probing into another man's spirit. You
and I may have probed into others' spirits but not seen the beam (big timber) in our
own spirit. A beam is much bigger than a mote.
The word mote means a tiny straw or a tiny piece of dried up Substance. It
could have one time been chaff that had once protected the grain but now is no
good. Past experiences that were in part is not needed now that perfection has come.
I Corinthians 13:9, 10 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when
that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. So our
brother tries to pull the dead thing out of our eye. Just dreaming of the good old
Says can be a mote in the eye. But in the twinkling process, the washing of the
word, the spirit is cleansed.
Our brother wants to pull his mote out and that is right, but this brother has a
bdam in his eye. This beam is bigger than some of these little dried up things. This
beam could be hard feelings, condemnation, envy, fear, doubt, and so forth. Jesus is
saying that each person has enough within his own spirit (eye) to keep him busy
without wanting to pull the little dried things out of his brother's eye. So in the
twinkling of an eye the spirit is cleansed.
Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us


go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead
works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of
hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Our spirit must keep these things washed out so that we can walk on into the
next move of God. I

New Prospect Baptist News
All reported a very nice and fun time at our VBS kickoff on
Saturday. Sunday morning our repertoire varied a little, as our two
singing groups, Jody and Danny, and Aimee, April, Kelly and
Tracey, did a fantastic job of handling the song service, blessing us
with a number of beautiful songs. Bro. Billy then stepped to the
pulpit and delivered God's wonderful message from Acts 8:26-39,
inspiring all to greater dedication and service for our Heavenly
Father.
Sunday evening, our Vacation Bible School started in
earnest with a delicious grilled chicken supper with all the
trimmings before classes began, putting the crowd in a good mood
for learning and studying. We thank God for all the people who
are willing to give of their time and efforts in this endeavor for the
advancement of His Kingdom, and we expect great things!
Don't forget the Youth Rally at Faith Baptist Church on
Saturday, June 10th, 6 PM, as well as the Florida Disaster Relief
Training at Westside Baptist Church in Gainesville on the same
day.
We will have our Pastor/Deacons Meeting Monday evening,
June 12 and our NPBC Business Meeting on Wednesday evening,
June 14th.
Once again, we had visitors Sunday, and would like to invite
all of you back anytime, as well as any new visitors...we welcome
you! Please remember to maintain all the prayers for those on the
various church prayer lists, our military, and our President and
other leaders. Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Old Town Church of God
Welcomes New Pastor
In a letter dated May 26th, 2006, Pastor Troy Hare was
officially appointed as Pastor of Old Town Church of God. He

community. Both send a warm invitation to join us as we start a

Faith Baptist Church News
How wonderful to be in the house of the Lord today. Brother
Darrel Mitchell preached the morning service and Brother Bobby
Bryan the evening service in the absence of Brother Jackie who's
away on vacation. Both Brother Darrel and Brother Bobby did
wonderful jobs and we enjoyed them very much. The special
music in the morning service was by Sister Debbie Phillips and the
evening service by Heather Fore. They did outstanding jobs as
well. Both services were a blessing.
Tuesday night will be our WMU meeting at the church in the
fellowship hall with crafts and finger foods. All the ladies are
invited to attend.
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is coming up in July and
teachers, kitchen workers, and lots of helpers are needed. If you
feel you can help, get in touch with Sister Cheryl Lord or Sister
Debbie Phillips.
We had several visitors in our services today and we want them
to know they are special to us and we pray that they were made to
feel welcome and loved. If you're looking for a church home, we
invite you to share ours, and if you're just passing through, we
invite you back anytime. Visitors are always a special blessing to
us.
Remember this week to pray for the sick in and around our
community and especially pray for the lost. God will bless you for
it. We'll be looking for you next week. Until we meet again, we at
Faith love you and will be praying for you.

Dixie Wheelin Sportsmen 4th Annual

Outdoor Adventure Highlights


1:.P IP .,
.............


Lining up for a great day of fishing and fellowshipping...it was standing room only as 35 airboats
prepared to take out guests from Florida and Georgia for the annual Wheelin Sportsmen event.
On May 6th we held our 4th annual outdoor adventure for the disabled at Shired Island Park. The weather
had us a little worried to begin with, the wind was blowing hard and it even rained a little. The weather also
kept some participates from being able to make this
year's event as well. We had one group whose
.'?* -- '"' .-: vehicle broke down on them so they couldn't make it
S .., either. All in all we had 25 participants that did come
S. out with about 35 boats ready to take them fishing.
.... 2.. '; Some of the extra boats got to take out news reporters
f" .. as well as the Outdoor Channel.
S' The Outdoor Channel is a big supporter of the
*,,- I- Wheelin Sportsmen and the NWTF. The gentleman,
who started the Wheeling Sportsmen, Kirk Thomas,
was here again and stated that it was one event he
would not miss.
Around 9:00am the weather cleared and the wind
quit blowing quite so hard so off the participants
; went for a day of fishing. They came in at around
Z 11:30 to show off their morning's catch and eat a
wonderful lunch before heading back out to fish
It took three to help show off this fisherman's some more. The lunch consisted of swamp cabbage,
catch otheday, someone trout mullet, hush puppies, cole slaw, grits, baked beans,
grilled pork, and some of the finest desserts you could ever have.
Each,'participant caught their limit in red fish, some caught trout, sheepshead, and, of course, the usual
catfish, stingray, and shiners. The best thing the boat drivers and volunteers caught all day was the smiles on the
participant's faces, and to hear them tell their fishing stories and how they are looking forward to next year.
We had several new participants this year and they couldn't quit talking about the good time they were
having. We are looking for new participants every year. If you are disabled and would like to join the Wheelin
Sportsmen, please contact us. We not only take the
disabled out fishing, but also we take them hunting
also as well as events that are put on throughout
Florida and Georgia. If you are interested in
learning more about the Wheelin Sportsmen you
can go to their website at www.nwtf@nwtf.org or
call Roy Skinner at 352-498-0300 or Marie Hunt at ,
352-542-7917. The cost is $25.00 a year, which
includes a subscription to the Wheelin Sportsmen's
magazine.-
An event like this could not happen without a
lot of help from people. Preparations start weeks in
advance. We would.like to begin, our list of "thank,
you" with the Dixie County Commissioners for
closing Shired Island Park for the weekend, giving
us all the room we needed. Also, thanks to the
County Road Department and to Arthur Bellot-
County Coordinator, for getting us water, the picnic These hungry participants took time from reeling
tables and everything else we needed. Thanks to in the fish to reeling in some.fiddles.
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and Deputy Mark Garcia
and the jail work crew to help put up our tent. The tent was wonderful; it helped keep the sun and sand off our
food and the participants. Thanks go out to the EMS for being there, just in case and to the Florida Game and
Fish Commission for their presence.
A BIG THANK YOU is extended to the boat drivers and owners; we could not put this on without you.
S, .'- iYou come and furnish your boats and gas and bring
joy to these participants. You do it year after year
and continue to ask to come back; this is so great!
There are just too many to name, but you know who
you are and all we can say is THANK YOU!
As always the cooks and helpers did another fine
job this year. Johnny and Mary Lord, Billy Andrews,
Peter and Amy Stone, Charles and Mitchell Knight,
-.. Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, David Farcas, Dan Ellison,
., and Robert Osteen, you all did a wonderful job
cooking. The helpers, Arthur and Cindy Bellot,
Roger and Josey Storey, Jennifer Bellot, Mac
Osteen, Diane Lord, Jenny Herring, BoKaye Wright
and Hailey Herring and Chris Lord and anyone else I
may have forgotten, "Thank you all!" Thanks to all
the ladies that brought those great desserts; you all
proved that Dixie County cooks are the very best.
To the ones that helped load and unload the
participants off the boats, we send you our grateful

A big thank you goes to Foodland for their
donations, they have helped every year and we
Appreciate them. Thanks to Progress Energy, James

the cabbage and to Mike Osteen and David Capo for donating the mullet. Charles Knight, thank you for

Get More Than You Pay For With

Father's Day Gift From FWC
If you want to get Dad something nice -- but not too expensive
-- for Father's Day, and you want it to give him years of
enjoyment, the Florida Fish, and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has a deal for you. You need to act promptly,
though. Buy him a five-year freshwater fishing license before
Father's Day, and he'll receive a package of free fishing equipment
in the mail automatically within three weeks.
The license costs $61.50 and provides for five full years of
great freshwater fishing opportunities in the "Fishing Capital of the
World." The license is a great hedge against inflation that may
cause price increases in future licenses. Anglers can check
MyFWC.com/Fishing to make sure the FWC hasn't run out of the
free tackle organizer, lures, hooks, bait saver, fishing towel and
publications, among other things that will go to people who take
advantage of the offer.
All license sales directly support fish and wildlife conservation
in Florida. In addition, every licensed angler helps Florida recover
more federal excise taxes under the Federal Aid in Sport Fish
Restoration program.
Five-year freshwater fishing licenses are available online at
MyFWC.com, over the counter at tax collectors' offices and
license agents or by calling 1-888-FISH FLORIDA.

Lead To New

Careers
Did you choose your job,
or did your job choose you?
Some of us fall into our
work or take the best option
available to us at the time. But
it might not be what we long to
do, or we might have grown
tired of our work over the
years. Or maybe we aren't
living up to our potential.
That's what happened to
Ron Bennett, who went from
working as a jack-of-all-

getting training at age 33 as a
heating and air conditioning
technician. Today, Bennett is
doing very well as an
independent contractor with
his business, Climate Control

Jayme Vascotto, 30, was an

who longed to stay home with
her daughter. She went back to

types patients' charts and
physician's orders. Today, she
works at home, makes great
money, and recently purchased
her first home.
It's exciting to change
fields. It brings passion and joy
back into your life, and when
you are doing work you love,
especially if it's in a high-
demand, high-paying field, it
will likely bring you more
money, too.
According to a recent
Harris Interactive survey of
7,718 American employees
ages 18 and over:
Only 20 percent of

33 percent believed
they had reached a dead end in

21 percent were eager

Santa Fe Community
College will have advisers
from its career and technical
education programs on hand to
talk with you about
educational requirements,
financial aid, admission
requirements, and adult
education.
Santa Fe offers more than 60
career and technical programs.
Some programs can be
completed in as little as six
months; the longest take two
years if you attend full time.
You can study part or full time,
and take classes at night,
online, and on weekends.
Some prerequisite classes can
be taken at the Andrews Center
and Watson Center, to cut
commuting time to the main
campus in Gainesville.
If you didn't finish high
school and need to brush up on


your skills before you are
ready for college, Santa Fe
also offers college prep
courses in a very supportive
environment with teachers who
care about your success.
Among the career and
technical education programs:
Santa Fe offers 16 health
science majors in the high
demand health care field. For
instance, if you get a two-year
degree in nuclear medicine,
starting pay is $45,000 a year.
If you already have a degree in
a health field, the one-year
sonography certificate program
leads also to high-paying work.
Starting pay is also
approximately $45,000. Or
consider a one-year certificate
program in dental assisting,
with starting pay of $22,000 to
$31,000 a year.
Santa Fe provides
apprenticeship programs in the
construction trades: electrical,
plumbing, masonry, carpentry,
and heating and air
conditioning.


Apprentices range in age
from just-out-of-high school to
older adults. Apprentices earn
while they learn. You work
full-time in your new field,
take classes at night and on the
weekend, and your employer
pays your tuition. When you
finish the program, you are
eligible for national
certifications that make you
competitive for jobs anywhere
in the country.
If you already have a
bachelor's degree, the SFCC
Educator Preparation Institute
will prepare you for the
classroom in less than a year.
Or you could learn to be a

like on CSI, or work with
animals as a veterinary
technician.

FWC Weekly Report
May 26 June 1, 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.
DIXIE COUNTY
On the Suwannee River over the holiday weekend, Lt. Roy
Williams and his squad made three BUI arrests on impaired
boaters. Two subjects blew .17 and .18 respectively while the third
subject refused to take the breathalyzer. All subjects were arrested
and transported to jail.
May 26, Capt. John Burton and Williams were on patrol,
conducting fisheries inspections in the area of Rocky Creek. At
midnight, they observed an airboat returning to the ramp. The
owner asked if he could pull his vehicle up for the next boat
entering the ramp. Williams allowed the owner to pull his vehicle
and vessel up. At the top of the ramp, the subject failed to stop anid
left the boat ramp area. Williams gave chase and caught up with
the subject as he was attempting to dump fish from his cooler into
the woods. Unfortunately for the suspect, his cooler handle broke,
dumping the fish in the roadway. Further inspection revealed one
undersize redfish and one undersize sheepshead for which he was
immediately cited.
North Central investigators worked hand in hand with uniform
patrol over the past Memorial Day weekend. Even though boating
safety was the focus, several resource violations were made. One
of these violations occurred while Investigator Larry Ayers and
Officer Justin Allen were working boating safety around the mouth
of the Suwannee River. A small 14-foot jon boat was observed
returning from the Gulf. A routine boating safety check was
performed and both individuals told the officers they had not
caught any fish. An oversized redfish was discovered under the
seat of one of the individuals. Both individuals told the officers
they were aware of the rules concerning redfish. Ayers issued one
citation.

Deadline Nearing To Apply For

Special-Opportunity Fall Hunts
The deadline to apply for the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's special-opportunity fall hunts is June
14.
Special-opportunity hunts offer hunters vast areas, abundant
game, low hunter quotas and excellent chances to bag quality deer,
hogs and released quail on some of the best public hunting areas in
the state.
Special-opportunity deer and wild hog hunts take place on Fort
Drum (Indian River County), Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter County),
Triple N Ranch (Osceola County) and Green Swamp West Unit
(Pasco County) wildlife management areas (WMAs). Released-
quail hunts take place on Blackwater WMA Carr Unit in Santa
Rosa County.
Hunters can apply for these permits at any license agent or tax
collector's office or submit an application at MyFWC.com.
Application worksheets are available at MyFWC.com/hunting.
Demand for these hunts typically is greater than the number of
permits available, so a random drawing is conducted to select
applicants. Hunters can improve their chances of being selected
though by submitting as many nonrefundable $5 applications as
they want. The cost of permits for the hunts ranges from $50 to
$175.
Visit MyFWC.com/hunting for more information on how-to
apply for special-opportunity hunt permits.


FWC Offers Unique Hunting Opportunities


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is
offering sportsmen some
unique hunting opportunities
for the coming season.
The FWC is providing
sportsmen mobility-impaired
hunts, supervised youth
hunts, family hunts, quail
hunts and track vehicle and
airboat hunts on selected
wildlife management areas
(WMAs).
Worksheets are available
at FWC regional offices and
online at
MyFWC.com/hunting under
"Limited Entry Hunts." The
period for submitting
applications to be included in
the random drawings begins
10 a.m. (EDT) June 20 until
July 7. Applications may be
submitted through the
Internet, at tax collectors'
offices or at any license
agent. Applications are no
longer accepted by mail.
Mobility-impaired hunts
are for persons who require
special equipment. These
hunts are not intended for
hunters who have a Florida
Disabled Person Hunting and
Fishing Certificate, but rather
those who are permanently
confined to a wheelchair,
1


persons who require the use
of mechanical aids (crutches
and walkers) to walk or those
with complete single-leg
amputations.
Another unique hunt is
for hunters 8-15 years old.
Two WMAs in the North
Central Region (Camp
Blanding and Andrews) offer
opportunities for non-hunting
adults to supervise young
hunters on public hunting
areas where the number of
hunters and the hunting areas
are rigidly controlled to
provide an optimum learning
experience and maximum
safety. These hunts are
popular, and the number of
applicants exceeds the
number of spaces available
each year.
The new Lafayette Creek
WMA as well as Matanzas,
Andrews, Devil's Hammock
and Dinner Island WMAs
will offer family hunts this
year. Applicants age 18 or
older may apply for a permit.
The permit holder is required
to bring one to two children
ages 8-15. Unlike the youth
hunt, the family hunt allows
the adult supervisor to hunt
with the children.
A quota hunt permit will
be required to hunt quail on


the Blackwater WMA Hutton
Unit and Blackwater Field
Trial Area in the Northwest
Region. There are seven two-
day hunts available on the
Hutton Unit and two four-day
hunts on the Field Trial Area.
The quota is two groups per
hunt on the Hutton Unit and
three groups per hunt on the
Field Trial Area. A group
may consist of up to three
hunters. Shooting hours end.
at 3 p.m., and the bag limit is
12 quail per group per day.
Wildlife management
areas in the southern part of
the state offer hunters an
unusual challenge because of
their open-marsh landscape.
Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and the
FWC has established quotas
on the number of vehicles
allowed. Permits to operate
track vehicles on
Rotenberger, Everglades and
Francis S. Taylor and Holey
Land WMAs, and permits to
operate airboats on
Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMA are issued. in
two random drawings.
For more information on
how to apply for one of these
truly unique quota hunts, visit
MyFWC.com/hunting.

jThe missing trophy
From a Triple Crown winner in horse racing, to an NCAA
basketball championship, Florida owns sports titles in
just about every sport.
There has been a Stanley Cup won by the
Lightning, a Super Bowl winner in the Bucs and
Dolphins and college football championships won by
Jhe Hurricanes, Gators and Seminoles. And even a
World Series won by the Marlins in MLB and by the
SHrricanes in college.
The one major sports which the Sunshine State
,.hasn't produced a champion is the NBA. And perhaps
npw that can become a reality through the Miami
Heat.
Starting Thursday. the Heat get that chance.
Pat Riley not only has Duane Wade and Shaquille O'Neill in the
lineup, but two former players at Florida Gators helping out -
Udonis Haslem and Jason Williams.
It's time to fill that empty spot in the trophy case.
OGick Jump Starts
I. This is the world we live in today: It's front page news
when an athlete (Lance Armstrong) gets cleared from a drug
charge.
2. OK. when Steve Spurrier shows up at "The
Swamp" Sept. 2 to join the celebration for the 1996 national
championship. will he be booed or cheered?
3. Dirk Nowitzki's 50-point night against the Suns won't
rival Magic Johnson's 50-point contribution as a substitute center
as a rookie in 1980. but it might make a Top 50 list of NBA
playoff moments.
4. That heap of humanity you saw lying on the floor
Wednesday night was Shaquille O'Neill, trying to find his body
parts after the abusive block of Detroit's Ben Wallace.
5. Since Roger Clemens is showing up about half the
time after his late arrival with the Astros. if he wins another Cy
Young Award, maybe they'll just give him the "Cy" part of it?
.'Short Staff
C'u Maybe it's because the nickname of one of the Stanley
Cup finalists is "Hurricanes" and we're just blocking it out, but
frankly it feels like the initials "NHL" should stand for "Nothing
Happening Lately"... Lookalikes: NBA referee Joey Crawford
and "Deal or No Deal" host Howie Mandel ...You might say
Ricky Williams wasn't exactly "burning up the league" in his CFL
Slebtut as the former former http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/
football/nfl/teams/dolphins running back was held to just 7 yards
n .four carries in a 31-3 Toronto to Hamilton.

Customer Service:
It's an oxymoron
As a public service. we bring you
these little tidbits from people who are
constantly amazed by the idiocv of those
people chosen to serve our needs "I was


signing the receipt for my credit card purchase
when the clerk noticed I had never signed my name on the back of
the credit card. She informed me that she could not complete the
transaction unless the card was signed. When I asked why. she
explained that it was necessary to compare the signature I had just
signed on the receipt. So I signed th(lie credit card in front of her.
She carelilly compared the signature to the one I had just signed
on the receipt. As luck would have it. they matched."
Just thought I'd ask
Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes
that something
new to eat will have materialized?
Buddy's Favorite Florida Factoids
1. The world's first commercial airline flight occurred in
Florida in 1914 between Tampa and St. Petersburg.
2. Florida is home to t(lie largest breeding population
of bald eagles in the lower 48 states.
3. Plant City. the Winter Strawberry Capital of the

DICK EDWARDS. COMMUNITY
PROGRAMS CONSULTING
Mr. Edwards presented the Dixie
County Grants Status Report dated.
April 20th, 2006 as follows:
CDBG
A. It is estimated by the Florida
Department of Community Affairs that
the 2006-2007 Community
Development Block Grant Funding
Cycle will open in June and close by
August 1, 2006 with applications
being funded in November or
December 2006. ,
SHIP/HHR
I: ,.Margaret Watson's septic system
will be replaced Wednesday, April 26
by Stephenson Septic.
II. 'We have received two proposals to
install a 3-BR, 2 BA manufactured
home for Katrina Branch.
KATRINA BRANCH
Prestige Home Center $40,000
First Class Homes NO BID
Yirborough Homes $32,650
After the unit is installed, Ms. Branch
needs to have a water well installed,
haye the septic system connected and
have two decks, with steps, installed:
We' estimate that this will cost $4,695
making the total price for the
Yarborough Homes unit $37,345 or
nearly $3,000 less than the Prestige
Homes proposal for the house without
the well and decks. (The SHIP/HHR
Compliance Committee recommends
this transaction.)
III. We have two applicants for
Hurricane Housing Recovery Down
Payment Assistance that hove received
approval for a mortgage from lenders:
Applicant -Lender-Purchase Price-
Mortgage-Recommended HHR


Assistance
, William D. Bass -Capital City Bank
of Trenton-$25,500-$12,000-$7,000
* Robert Allen-Liberty Mortgage
Group, Inc.-$160,000-$128,000 -
$10,000
IV. Jamie Martin at Drummond
Bank is requesting that the Dixie
County Commission agree to
subordination agreements for the
Marilyn (Aulwes) Watson and Scott
McCall projects to enable the bank to
make a loan to each party and have the
first mortgage position for both. (The
SHIP/HHR Compliance Committee
does not endorse either subordination;
because to do so would be enabling the
borrower to place their property at
risk.)
V. We are asking the


Commission to clarify its position
concerning the county's grant
programs construction two wheelchair
ramps on any home. In the past, one
handicapped accessible entry/exit has
been sufficient. Florida building codes
require that bedroom windows be large
enough to be used as a means of
escape in case of an emergency.
NOTE: If the Commission
authorizes funding levels as requested,
the Dixie County Hurricane Housing
Recovery Program will have
approximately $3,000 in uncommitted
funds.
Photo copies of the Down Payment
Assistance Project for the potential
Wm. D. Bass purchase and the Dixie
County SHIP/HRR Waiting List were
presented along with the DC Grants
Status Report.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the Katrina
Branch project as recommended by the
Compliance Committee.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Land and
carried to approve the Wm. D. Bass
Down Payment Assistance Project in
the amount of $13,500, based on
assessment valued at $25,500.
No action was taken on the Robert
Allen Down Payment Assistance until
the assessment can be reviewed.
The Board agreed unanimously to
deny subordination agreements for the
Marilyn Watson and Scott McCall
projects to Drummond Bank as
recommended by the Compliance
Committee.
After discussion, the Board agreed to
front and back wheelchair ramps based
on statement of the recipient's
physician that it is needed and the
recipient requires in home use of a
wheelchair for mobility.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:


POST-SECONDARY PLANS

AND STATISTICS

FOR THE CLASS OF 2006
r Each senior class has a unique character about their intentions
Sfor post-secondary plans. This year we had a total of 116 students
S .....-- -- in the Class of 2006. Of that number, 57% or 66 students are
Supt. Dennis Bennett entering community colleges. We see that 4.5% or 5 students are
going directly into 4 year colleges. When we look back at prior
graduating classes, up to 25% went directly into 4 year colleges. What we are seeing is a trend to go
to campuses with smaller enrollments and smaller classes.
Our military and trade school post-enrollment remains about the same as previous year's
graduating classes, staying between three and five percent.
The Class of 2006 stands as a successful class with 49%, almost half of its students scoring a 3.0
grade point average or above.
Below is a summary of information for the Class of 2006:
A total of 116 students in the Class of 2006. There were 111 standard diploma students and two
:(2) special diploma students. Included in this 111-standard diploma were seven (7) students who
were ESE students and the FCAT was waived (WFW); six (6) students had not passed FCAT at the
time of graduation or had not met all graduation requirements. FCAT re-test is scheduled for 06-21-
.06, in the DCHS Library.
Individual students gave the following information as their intentions for post-secondary plans:
4 Students intend to attend Trade Schools or 3%
5 Students have applied or have been accepted to 4-yr. College or University or 4.5%
66 Students have been accepted or plan to attend Community College or 57%
5% Students have enlisted or planning on enlisting in military or 4.5%

SFCC Dedicates

New Outdoor

Geological

Exhibit
In a state where rocks are
scarce, it's a novelty to visit one
spot and see examples of 22
'different types of rocks:
Migmatite, a black and white
nietamorphic rock with a swirly
pattern reminiscent of a
hurricane's spiral. A sandstone
fiom Connecticut stamped with
the footprint of a dilophosaurus
200 million years ago. An 11,000-
pound gabbro boulder with light-
colored veins of quartz and pyrite.
Santa Fe Community College
will dedicate its new Jean Klein
Rock Cycle Garden at 2:30 p.m.
Tuesday, June 6. The garden's
boulders encircle a sinkhole in
,front of the library at Santa Fe's
:NW campus at 3000 NW 83rd
Street, a picturesque, park-like
setting.
The rock cycle, for all you
non-geologist types, shows that
rocks can change from one rock
type to another over geologic time.
The rocks are placed in order from
early magma stage to later
sedimentary forms, and a sign at
each rock explains its origin, type,
and donor.
The rock garden is the result
of Geology Professor Michael
.Patrick's vision and hard work,
and is one of just a few rock cycle
gardens in the United States.
"It's designed to instill in
students and visitors alike an
appreciation of the beauty, origin,
evolution and interrelationships
between Earth's rocks," said
Patrick,' who arranged for rock
nationsos from quarries in states
such as California, Oregon,
Tennessee and Colorado over the
'past two years.
The rock garden will be both
leaching tool and inspiration,
Patrick said.
, "It's one thing to hold a rock
sample in your hand in a lab,"
explained Patrick. "!t's quite
another experience to run your
fingers over a boulder with real
structure."
The garden's namesake. Jean
Klein. was a 31-year employee of
Santa Fe, a geology professor and
chairman of Santa Fe's science
department for 13 years. Klein
died in 2003.
Teachers, parents, rock
hounds all are invited to
campus to check out the rock
cycle garden. A downloadable
brochure for a self-guided tour
will eventually be available at
www.sfcc.edu, or call (352) 395-
5349 for more information.

SCreditors have better.
memories than debtors.

Joppa Baptist Church Celebrates
110th Homecoming, Sunday June 11
It is once again time to extend a special invitation to all of our
friends and neighbors, past members and Pastors of JBC to join
us in celebration of our 110th Homecoming Sunday June 11th.
Pastor Ron Coward from Fellowship Baptist Church of
Steinhatchee will be the Special Guest Speaker, starting at 10:30
am followed by a covered dish dinner.
There is no Sunday School or evening services scheduled; we
will have a full afternoon of fellowship and special music.
The old church building was moved here in 1915, and called
Pleasant Grove Baptist, then changed to Joppa in 1935, later
named Suwannee River Baptist. In June of 1975 it was changed
back to Joppa Baptist.
In October 2001, Pastor Alpheus Atkins and his family joined
the Church Family. They have been an inspiration to our
congregation.
In June, 2002, as we celebrated our 106th Homecoming, we
also celebrated the groundbreaking of our new. church. The new
Church Dedication was October 2, 2004.
We are very proud of the "new" Joppa; still in Fanning Springs
at 7530 NW 165th Street.

Florida Southern College
Names 110 President's Scholars
One hundred ten students at Florida Southern College have
been named President's Scholars for the 2006 spring semester.
Students named to the list must have earned a perfect 4.0 grade-
point average while carrying at least 15 credit hours during a
semester. Senior Adrianne Adelynne Richardson, from Old
Town, earned the honors to be named one of the 110 President's
Scholars. She is the daughter of Bill and Donna Richardson of
Old Town.
Founded in 1885, Florida Southern College is a private,
comprehensive, United Methodist college with a liberal arts core.
The college maintains its commitment to academic excellence
through 38 undergraduate majors and distinctive graduate
programs in business administration, education, and nursing.
Florida Southern has a 14:1 student/faculty ratio, provides strong
student/faculty mentorship programs, boasts 25 NCAA Division
II national championships, and is ranked by U. S. News and
World Report as one of the top ten Southern Comprehensive
Colleges-Bachelors and by the Princeton Review as a "Best
Southeastern College." Located on scenic Lake Hollingsworth,
Florida Southern is the home of the world's largest single-site
collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture.

Springhouse Quilter's News


A F J A*

L3


Springhouse quilters will be hosting the advanced group of
4-H young women this week for a sewing-quilting camp. The
young women will be making a 6-hour quilt during the week plus
other projects. The quilt is made similar to a log cabin quilt
pattern but is much larger in size than the traditional log cabin
block. The 4-H members will be able to make the quilt the actual
size they want. Even though this is called a 6-hour quilt, it will
take most of the week to piece and assemble the quilt.
Elaine Faison is serving as the coordinator for the 4-H
sewing camp. Elaine retired from the Extension Office 4-H
program at the end of 2005 and joined the Springhouse quilters.
She has become very active in quilting and is excited to be the
leader of the 4-H sewing camp.
4-H members who are interested in learning to sew and quilt
still have time tQ sign up for the beginning camp which will be
held the 3rd week of June. To sign up, interested 4-H members
should contact the County Extension Office in Trenton.

Rod Smith Statement on the Veto

of Nearly $2 Million in Funding

for First Responders
"Florida's firefighters and first responders are true heroes -
everyday they save lives, protect our property, and are essential to
ensuring our homeland security.
"In a state where we face such devastating wildfires, with so
many seniors calling on emergency medical personnel, and with
the potential for terrorist and security threats, vetoing funds for
these heroes poses a direct threat to our public safety.
"This is yet another example that Florida's leadership needs to'
get its priorities right we should not be cutting taxes for the
wealthy while making cuts that hurt Florida's first responders or
put our safety at risk."


If you study to remember,
you will forget but, if you
study to understand, you
will remember.

theCiruCourt's offie Yoil umhl y rt the Clerk of


to Seven Graduate From
ve
a FWC K-9 School
a Scofflaws in three states had better watch out because there are
de, seven newly trained natural resource canines and handlers ready to
nd hit the dirt.
The officers, who hail from fish and wildlife and natural
resource agencies in Florida, Delaware and Maryland finished
more than 400 hours of training that began in February and were
awarded their certificates Friday morning on the steps of the Old
s Capitol Building in Tallahassee.
Y Four of the handlers and their partners are from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC); two are from
TY Maryland Natural Resources Police and one hails from Delaware
TY, Department of Natural Resources.
NG Florida's officers include: Edward "Eddie" R. Brown and
DA Grady, who are assigned to Hendry County; Bradley W. Clayton
t to and Cain, assigned to Polk County; Samuel D. Dishman and Bear,
ida Levy County; and William E. Giles and Parker, Columbia County.
and Officer 1st Class Curt W. Dieterle and Blu, and Cpl. April C.
and Sharpeta and Bear, are from Maryland; and Cpl. Casey L. Zolper
ns, and Warden are from Delaware.
ing The officers were selected through a process within their own
ow agency to determine who would receive a dog. Training began in
nty
ida, February.
ard The seven dogs, mostly black Labradors, were donated, with
blic the majority coming from animal shelters.
as One dog, Grady, was saved from possible death. She was
, in beaten with a shotgun and a shock collar was used on her, Brown
ting said. Now, the playful pup has been through the rigors of training.
401 "I've been amazed about how far from Day 1 to now my 'dog

has come," he said like a proud, new father would when speaking
nge of his baby. "She got a perfect score in tracking."
erty Eventually, Brown wants to do public presentations, especially
for children.
an "I want to show them what our dogs do," he said. "I want to
50- show them not all police dogs are bite dogs."
FWC instructor John Snow said the canines are trained to gniff
out illegally taken wildlife, such as dove, deer, turkey, lobster,
use alligators and ducks. Depending on where the dogs live and work,
ntly they were trained to detect specific wildlife. They also can track
humans and find evidence, such as guns, shell casings, knives,
handcuffs anything a human has touched. Recently, one of
one FWC's canines located evidence in a double-homicide. -
arty "Their main function is to track humans," he said.
and
bcand FWC now has 14 law enforcement canines.
blic "We have the most natural resource dogs in the world, as far as
ning I know," Snow said.
said Snow has made his presence known for natural resource canine
eks training. He has been employed by FWC since 1980 and had a
blic bloodhound he used before the agency had a K-9 program. He was
one of the first officers to become a handler for FWC something
all he's done for 18 years and he's been an instructor for 15 years.
ard When Zolper, who with Warden is the first team for
Delaware's Department of Natural Resources, began searching for
an instruction program, he was told one name.
areof "John Snow," he said. "They all said John Snow and Florida is

tion the place you want to go. With the program he's put together,
iue, pretty much all your resource dogs have been trained by Florida or
ess a state that's been trained by Florida."
The two officers from Maryland agreed the training was
e to rigorous. Their dogs are the only two trained in wildlife detection
ove from their state.
d a Dieterle said he learned many things while attending the
uch training, but one stood out in his mind.
atde, a "Trust your dog," he said. "The dog knows the task."

and Sharpeta said the training and dogs are "really going to change
the way we work in Maryland. It's a better way to get things
-24 done."
She, along with the other officers, agreed the work and training
was difficult, but very rewarding. They all had to leave their
r & families and friends to train for two weeks with a week off and
on then back again.
the Snow said the officers and their partners will now go back.to
349, their respective states, taking along a valuable tool.
"These dogs are an asset to protect natural resources," he sdid.
24 "They are trained to do just that."

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
May 14-20th marked National EMS Week. Throughout the week, Dixie's Emergency Medical
Services held events, recognizing that special time set aside to honor those men and women who
work in the field of emergency medicine.
Emergency Services Director Chad Reed kicked off the week long celebration with a special
presentation at the Board of County Commissioner Meeting. Reed presented each employee with
their "Years of Service" pin and a special certificate of appreciation.
On Saturday an EMS Expo was held at the Emergency Services Administrative Office in Cross
City. Over 300 residents came out to help in the celebration and they were given the grand tour and
to see first hand what their tax dollars have purchased. On hand were ShandCair & AirMedic
helicopters, fire truck, Division of Forestry EMS vehicles, and the Mobile Command Post. Children
were thrilled to be able to climb onto the fire truck and were given special fire fighter hats. Blood
pressure checks were provided for free and hand outs for all types of hazards were able.
"I would like to thank Stanley from Foodland for donating all the food for the expo and to John
Driggers for cooking the hot dogs," Reed stated. "Special thanks go to the County Commissioners
for all their support to our department and the staff," Reed added. It was a great week for some very
deserving EMS folks.
