Bizarre Confession Re-Opens

34-Year-Old Murder Case


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Earlier this year an Old Town man walked
into the Dixie County Jail and asked that he be
arrested for possibly raping a 13 year old girl
just before she died 34 years ago in Franklin,
New Hampshire; only to retract his statements
once N.H. authorities were notified.
Edward Earl Dukette, 62, of the First District
told investigators on March 28, 2006 details of
the death of Kathy Lynn Gloddy. He stated that
he had been fishing with the young girl in an
area where he had previously molested her and
she had somehow fallen in the water. Dukette
stated that when he pulled her out of the water
she was limp. Believing that she was dead, he
buried her.
Gloddy's body was found about three miles
from her home. An autopsy performed on the
girl showed she had been raped, hit in the head,
neck and stomach and strangled and possibly
run over by a car.
New Hampshire officials came to Dixie
County to interview Dukette and stated they had
been actively working the "cold case" since it
was reopened in 2004. Dukette had been a
suspect 34 years ago, but no solid evidence
against Dukette connected him to the murder.
Dukette is no stranger to sexual assault
charges. On July 17, 1971, Dukette took a 14
year old California girl to a location and raped
her six times before letting her go. She and her


parents had been told she was going to baby sit
for Dukette, but instead found herself in a
nightmare. Dukette was sentenced five years
for that rape.
Dukette does not appear on the Sexual
Offender List. When asked why he was not
listed, Sheriff Dewey Hatcher noted that there
wasn't such a list in the 1970's and offenders
prior to that list are not obligated to report their
whereabouts.
Dukette and his ivife live near Rock Sink
Baptist Church where 'they are members. The
couple seem to be dedicated to the church and
its teachings. Sheriff Hatcher stated that during
Dukette's interview, he (Dukette) stated he had
"made peace with God with everything he had
done in his life."
Dukette is now blaming a lung disease that
creates an imbalance in his blood gases and
oxygen levels as the reason he became confused
and made him believe he might have had
something to do with the girl's death.

A bottle and inhaler used by Dukette during
his taped confession has been sent to New
Hampshire. Investigators there, hope that
today's forensic science will be able to help
shed light on whether Dukette was telling the
truth and can become their prime suspect; or
whether or not it will clear him.

Dixie Aids Levy County In Apprehension

Of Armed Robbery Suspects


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On Saturday, July 15th, the Dixie County
Sheriff's dispatch received information from the
Levy County Sheriff's Office that there had
been an armed robbery at the Crystal Inn in
Fanning Springs. Area law enforcement were
alerted to be on the look out for a maroon Ford
F-150 pickup carrying two while males and one
white female.
DSO Investigator Scott Harden and Sheriff
Dewey Hatcher were parked on SR 349N when
a truck matching the description from Levy
County was seen driving north. Harden
followed the pickup onto the Forest Hills Road
before stopping it. Harden asked the driver for
his driver's license. He (Harden) noted that
there were two passengers matching the
description given of the suspects.
Sheriff Hatcher arrived and helped Harden
detain the suspects until additional information


could be received by Levy County SO. Once
officers established that the occupants of the
truck were the individuals placed at the armed
robbery scene, they were taken into custody.
The two males, Michael David Eady and
Gary Andrew Sullivan allegedly entered the
room of the victim and robbed him at gun point.
A small hand gun was found in the pickup of the
suspects.
The female passenger, identified as Michelle
Brinson, was released. Eady and Sullivan were
transported to the Dixie County Jail where they
were booked on armed robbery charges.
Eady was transferred to the Levy County Jail
earlier this week. Sullivan remains in the Dixie
County Jail on Violation of Probation on grand
theft charges. He will be extradited to Levy on
the armed robbery charges after his VOP is
heard.


Fuel Tank Defect Suspected As


Cause Of Vehicle Fire


Above is what's left of a single wide mobile home off Old US 19. The fire also consumed a shed and threaten
to spread to a house located next to it as well as neighboring homes. The pictures below (left to right) show
Dixie Emergency Services Director Chad Reed chopping through debris in order to find "'hot spots"; the
Division of Forestry Forest Ranger John Lambert plows a fire line, stopping the fire in its tracks; Dixie
Emergency Services Fires Services Division Chief Darian Brown takes a much needed rest from the heat of
the flames and high temperatures.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Monday, July 17th local firefighters were called to the home of John L. Downing off
Old US 19. When crews arrived the single-wide mobile home was engulfed in flames and had
spread to a shed and a good portion of the yard. It would take the combined efforts of the local fire
departments and Division of Forestry to contained the blaze. See "FIRE" page 5



Cross City Family's Home


Destroyed By Falling. Oak Tree


This mobile home was destroyed as a large oak tree fell from the back yard onto the structure. While no one


was injured, the family is now homeless.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
When Joseph B. Stevener of Winter Haven decided to spend the morning out on the beautiful
Suwannee River last Friday, July 14th, little did he know that his trip would end with his car bursting
into flames and burning down to the rims. The incident occurred at the CR 340 boat ramp off Cedar
Lane in Old Town.
According to a report filed by Dixie County Emergency Services Division Chief Darian Brown,
Stevener was in the process of pulling his boat trailer down the boat ramp to recover his boat when it
caught on fire. Stevener was able to get out of the car without injury.
Brown noted that when fire crews arrived the car was fully involved. While several fought the
fire on the car and boat trailer, other fire fighters began diking and containing the runoff from the

Israel gets a belly full
Did you know that hundreds of Jews had been forewarned to
itay home from their jobs in the Twin Towers on September 11,
2001? Did you know that the Zionists were, in fact, responsible for
the 9/11 attacks-except for the one that we are told hit the
Pentagon, because that one never really happened?
And were you aware that Hitler's Holocaust, which is said to
have resulted in the deaths of six million people, most of whom
were Jews, never really happened?
Good grief! Hitler was right--and we drove the poor guy to
suicide-unless you happen to believe he's still alive, in which case
he would be 117 years old and hiding out somewhere in Argentina.
The apocryphal statements in the preceding paragraphs would
be comical, were it not for the fact that a lot of people believe them.
Well, you had to have someone to blame for the Great
Depression. We Americans blamed Herbert Hoover, while Hitler
convinced the Germans that "the Jews" were to blame. Both wrong,
but at least on our end we resolved it with an election, finding that
somewhat more consistent with civilized behavior than resorting to
genocide.
At the end of World War II, the United Nations agreed to
assign the Jews a portion of their original homeland. (Once again,
remember that the UN wasn't altogether hostile to the priorities of
Western Civilization in 1948.) After that, it wasn't long before
Israel's "neighbors" started attacking, but guess what? Israel didn't
back down. Kicked butt a few times, in fact, and they acquired
some additional territory, as often happens when countries win
wars.
Back in the late 1950's, a Jewish friend related a joke about
how America would support Israel's annexation of the Gaza strip
if they'd give us back Miami Beach. Ironically, Israel surrendered
:.Gaza in a vain hope of peace with the Palestinians, and you have to
speak Spanish (not Hebrew or Yiddish, let alone English) to get
around anywhere in Dade County these days.
Israel has a long history of winning wars with their neighbors.
According. to the Bible (if you feel that disqualifies any further
comments herein, please go back to reading The Protocols of the
Learned Elders of Zion), God promised that piece of real estate to a
fellow named Abraham, who didn't live long enough to cash in,
but his descendents did. Not that ancient Israel didn't have
problems, but during the reign of King David, they gained control
of much of the Middle East.
Mind you, we're not talking about millions of square miles. In
terms of territory, Israel's original turf was relatively modest. But it
was a lot more than they occupy today, and a lot of the reason for
this is that western diplomats--including our own-have consist-
ently pressured the Israelis to give back territory and generally to
"make nice" with their hostile neighbors. Kiss and make up, and
maybe they'll learn to like you.
Sure. Like feeding marshmallows to that alligator in the lake
will keep him from eating your dog. Or your kid. Or you, for that
matter, if he's big enough. "
Well, Israel finally said, "Enough!" After years of futile efforts
at compromise and accommodation, they took the fight to the
enemy. It came to a head when an Israeli corporal was taken
hostage, and Israel remains very much in a retaliatory mode.
For once, an American president didn't caution Israel to back
off. George W. Bush said, "Israel has a right to defend herself."
And that's what they're doing. It had to happen sooner of later,
but don't take my word for it, read Matthew and Revelation.

Q : I ran a stop sign the
other day and went to pay the
ticket at the Clerk's office. I
was curious about where traffic
ticket money ends up.

A. The money from traffic
infractions is used in a variety
of ways. The majority of the
dollars and cents stays in the
city or county where the ticket
is written. The rest of the fine
money is distributed to the
state for general revenue and a
variety of state trust funds and
programs, such as: Emergency
Medical Services, Brain and
Spinal Cord Rehabilitation,
Florida Endowment, Child
Welfare Training, Juvenile
Justice, foster care citizen
review panels, Nongame
Wildlife studies and state
criminal justice programs. The
Clerk of Courts only retains a
half of one percent. The
percentage of money received


Ellen Sands
from traffic tickets to be
applied to each of the various
funds is established by the
Legislature, and it is the
statutory responsibility of the
Clerk of Court to see that the
Moines are properly
distributed.

If you need help filling out the
forms or finding a phone
number for the nearest legal
assistance office, call the
Clerk's Office and ask where
assistance is available.


Letter To The Editor
July 16, 2006
Dear Editor,
I live in Old Town, and one of the reasons that I settled here
over four years ago is the proximity of this area to the Suwannee
River and to the Gulf, as I am both the daughter and the mother of
ardent fishermen. And since I've moved here I've discovered how
important both fishing and hunting are to the economy of Dixie
County. Therefore I was somewhat dismayed to find out that a
prominent animal rightist, Wayne Pacelle, the director of the
Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), has a history of
making comments about the elimination of hunting, and
presumably also fishing, in the US, as proved in the following
quotes:
"Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock
fighting and dog fighting."
Bozeman (MT) Daily Chronicle, 10/8/91
"We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic
process to stop all hunting in the United States ... We will take it
species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then
we will take it state by state."
Full Cry magazine, 10/1/90
"If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we
would."
Associated Press, 12/30/91
"We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds
of livestock produced through selective breeding ...One
generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of
domestic animals. They are creations of human selective
breeding."
Animal People News, 5/1/93
And by the last quote one can see that the ultimate goal of the
animal rightists is the elimination of ALL traditional uses of
animals by humans, including getting rid of all food-producing
animals.
And one can no longer simply dismiss these ideas as coming
from the kook and cult "fringe," as the HSUS has hundreds of
millions of dollars at its disposal to use in the legislative fight
against our traditional rural and agricultural way of life.
Fortunately the HSUS is currently being investigated by the
Attorney General of Louisiana for possible fraud in their
collection of over $30 million dollars in donations from the
general public, as this money was supposed to be used to rescue
and care for animals that were in distress in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina, so perhaps their true goals will be brought to
light soon in the media. In the meantime the assault on the
traditional use of rural land and of the animals on that land
continues unabated, as the following article by Jim Beers, a
retired US Fish and Wildlife biologist, shows quite clearly.
So when the voters of Dixie County are considering who they
will vote for in the upcoming general elections, they need to find
out if any potential candidate is willing to defend our traditional
rural way of life here, because there are giant forces at work in
our own country that are trying to destroy these very traditions.
Sincerely,
Lu LeJeune
Old Town, Florida



Letter To The Editor
People disagree with the Bush administration occasionally and
usually base their opinions on ideological differences. But mostly
on no access to classified intelligence. As evidence is unfolding
these left leaning individuals find themselves on shaky ground.
Although everyone is entitled to their opinions, they should not be
based on quick off the cuff and shallow remarks that are highly
debatable.
Another letter left me shaking my head in amazement. I was
appalled to read in my hometown newspaper, the parroting from a
seemingly nice lady, the identical views of Hezbollah, Homas,
Radical Palestinians, Syria, Iran (formerly Persia) and other Islam
fascists. How could this be? Perhaps part of the problem is caused
by what we read. Whether it is the New York Times, Gainesville
Sun or other propaganda laden journal. Scrutiny is the best policy.
Respectfully,
Hector Le Bron


Letter To The Editor
In response to Zion:
I don't know the Bible word for word, and can't recite any of
the Books; but, I believe in God, and I fear Him, and Love Him.
For anyone to say Judaism is Anti-God is scary to me.
I also thought we were all supposed to love each other and not
cast stones.
I'll pray for you,
Jac Gardner


Letter To The Editor
This is to who ever went out to the Keen Cemetery and stole all
the stuff that belongs to Joseph Dyals' grave.
That stuff was taken out there because he is loved and missed
by his kids and family. I think it takes a very sick person to go out
and steal from people that have passed away. I hope the stuff you
stole makes you happy, because I don't know how you can look at
yourself in the mirror everyday knowing that you stole from him
and his family.
Aunt Gail Dyals

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JULY 20, 2006


"BOLIN"
Continued from page 1


By Terri Langford- .' .ii .
Connie Carter and her three children considered themselves
blessed to have been saved from any injury when a large oak tree
fell on their home in the early morning hours on Saturday, July 8th,
even though they are now homeless. While the home was insured,
it was only insured for the amount owed on the home; the question
now is what they are going to do to replace their home and much
of the contents within it.
Carter was at work when the tree fell, crashing into the kitchen
,~rea of the home. Two of her children were in their rooms
sleeping, while the third was in the living room, located next to the
kitchen.
There is no apparent reason as to why the tree fell; only that it
was quite old. Water oaks are known to have shallow root systems
which can cause the tree to fall at any given time.
"In an interview this past Monday, Connie stated the insurance
adjuster had not been out to the single-wide mobile home to asses
the damage. With rains popping up during the afternoon hours,
Carter is concerned that additional damage will be done to her
belongings. Emergency Management officials have deemed the
mobile home unsafe and will not allow Carter to go into the
damaged structure to collect her belongings.
Carter noted that she is mostly in need of clothes as of now.
She won't know what else will need to be replaced until she can
get in the house and inventory what is salvageable.
Last week, Carter applied for emergency housing through the
SHIP program. Her chances of receiving help through that program
are slim as the funds have already been depleted for the 2006
budget. For now she and her children, ages ten, fifteen and
eighteen, are staying at her mothers home, Florence Carter.
If you would like to help this single mother and her children,
you may contact her sister, Angela Carter at 498-3750.

"FIRE"
Continued from page 1

While Dixie County firefighters worked containing the fire
from the mobile home and yard, Division of Forestry Forest
Rangers John Lambert and Clint Tatum took the lead by plowing a
fire line around the property which was surrounded in thick brush.
Once the flames were contained, a volunteer crew from Jena
did a "mop up" of the area, preventing further outbreaks.
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the State Fire
Marshall's Office.
Only a few hours later, crews would be called to a fire off
Spillers Road. Fortunately it was only a trash fire and was quickly
contained.
Over the weekend crews worked a marsh fire off the Howard
Hart Road that burned approximately 8 acres. The Division of
Forestry cut lines and set back fires while fire crews secured
several homes that were in danger.
Dixie Emergency Services Director Chad Reed noted that over
the past 6 months the county has been working diligently in getting
their fire services department, both full time and volunteer staff
trained. Theses efforts show good cooperation between the
volunteers, paid staff and Division of Forestry.
"Our goal is to continue and strive for excellence in our fire
services," ended Reed.
The next certification class will be held beginning August 1st.
Anyone wishing to join the county or Cross City Fire Department
is urged to sign up for the course. For more information you may
call 498-1240.
"DRUG ARREST"
Continued from page 1

Hope continued to watch Frow as he left Simpson's home and
was able to detain him (Frow) on a traffic stop as he left driving
30mph in a 15mph zone.
..While Hope was running a license check on Frow, he
discovered there was a warrant out for Frow for violation of
probation (VOP). Frow was placed under arrest for the VOP.
S'.It was while Frow was searched before being put in the patrol
car that two baggies containing crack cocaine and powdered
cocaine were found. Frow was arrested with an additional charge
of Possession of a Controlled Substance.
Once Frow was secured at the Dixie County Jail, Deputy Hope,
'along with Investigator Michael Brannin and several other deputies
arrested Simpson and transported him to the Dixie County Jail
where he was charged with Sell/Delivery of Control Substance
Cocaine Within a 1000ft. of a Place of Worship.
-" 'During his interview with Frow, Deputy Hope was told by
Frow that he had told Simpson, "Man don't you see P.J. Hope
watching us?" Simpson replied, "P.J. is not going to bother you,
he's just a school cop." Let this be a lesson to all potential law
breakers... all deputies are created equal and have the same
arresting powers.

his interview with Stevener he
found out that he had received
a recall on his 2006 Nissan
Murano. The recall stated that
the vehicle's fuel tank was
susceptible to puncture.
Stevener had taken his car to
the dealer for the repair. On
July 12h, Stevener took the car
back to the dealer because he
noticed there was a hose loose
in the area of the fuel tank.
An investigation at the
scene revealed a burn trail on
the sand and grassed areas
where the car had been and
where it had turned around in
order to back down the ramp,
indicating that fuel had been
leaking from the car prior to
the fire.
Stevener's boat was
removed from the water by a
friend, while the car was
towed. The boat trailer was
salvageable and also taken to
the friend's home where it will
be repaired.

The Word

Made Flesh
The Mark of the Beast
Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say I want to help people
get free of the beasts in Revelation 13.
The one that rises up out of the sea,
having seven heads and ten horns, and
upon his horns ten crowns, and upon
his head the name of Blasphemy. The
second beast comes up out of the earth;
and he had two horns like a lamb and
he spake as dragon.
The beasts are working in the
earth (people) now. The time of
Antichrist is already upon us. We must
come out from under this beast
message that many are teaching today
teaching that this beast is made of
metal and has some kind of computer
or mechanical way of stamping you in
your right hand or in your forehand.
Beloved, you had better watch the
beast that's working in you. I, the son
of man, say forget about all of these
things that are coming upon the earth.
Jesus Christ is the way out of it all.
Jesus said, "and there shall be signs in
the sun, and in the moon, and in the
stars; and upon the earth distress of
nations, with perplexity; and the sea
and the waves roaring; men's hearts
failing them for fear, and for looking
after those things which are coming on
the earth: for the powers of heaven
shall be shaken. And then shall they
see the Son of man coming in a cloud
with power and great glory. And when
these things begin to come to pass,
then look up, and lift up your heads;
for your redemption draweth nigh."
St. Luke 21:25-28 1, the son of
man, say the mark of the beast which
is called six-six-six has meaning that
leads you all the way back to the
Garden of Eden where these four
heads came out. The beast was never
seen or recognized until Jesus Christ
came here on the earth. They are not
.called beasts or recognized as beasts
until the Book of Revelation was
written.
I, the son of man, say this was for
our time the fulfilling of the
Revelation of Jesus Christ in the earth.
Please read Revelation 1:1 and
Revelation 22:16. Do not let anyone
come with anything that won't support
this blessed King James version of the
scriptures.
Continued next week...

Let's
Pray


I .... Peace

New Prospect Church News


It was great to be back in
God's house Sunday...the
sanctuary was filled, our choir
in fine form and, with God's
leadership, Bro. Billy brought a
very timely and moving
message from Exodus 3:1-6.
During the invitation, we were
very pleased to gain another
member by letter. On Sunday
night, we honored our church
DCHS seniors with a banquet
in the church annex.
, The writer owes an apology
to Ron and Shellie Jo Fowler
for the mistaken identity of one
of their new twins mentioned in
last week's NPBC news
article; the name given should
have been Aldan instead of


Aden...sorry about the mistake,
Ron and Shellie.
Our monthly Fellowship
Supper is scheduled for
Wednesday evening, July
19th...always a time of good
eating and Christian fellowship.
It is always good to have
visitors with us, and we
welcome you back anytime,
along with any new visitors.
Please remember all those on
the church prayer lists, our
nation's leaders, and our
military personnel in your
prayers this week, as certain
aspects of the mid-east
situation seem to worsen daily.
Have a good week, and may
God bless you.


Hearts Full Of Gratitude
We want to thank our families, our friends and our community
for your warm and loving reception in welcoming our daughter,
Jennifer, and our granddaughter, Carrie home. A special "thank
you" to Vincent Wilkie, Rusty & Teresa Gill, John Coffill, Charles
Ha),. Caleb Bell, Eddie Osteen, Chris & Bessie Jo Parcells, Sidney
Beckham and Florida Forestry Products for all their help in
building a room to accommodate their needs. "Thank you", too, to
Mark & Barbara Young for helping to clear the yard of debris and
construction materials.
A very special thank you to Pastor Ruby Graham, Evangelist
Roberta Buggs and Missionary Daffney Aiken for their ministry to
Jennifer.
SWe would also like to thank the administration and staff from
Haven Hospice Home Care for working with Jennifer to help meet
her needs. The kindness, compassion and understanding that have
been shown to all of us have helped make the transition from
Sarasota easier.
Since Jennifer was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral
Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig's disease, she has actively advocated for
ALS awareness for the community. Jennifer and Carrie appeared
before the Senate Committee in Washington, D.C., supporting a
national ALS registry and treatment research for this cruel disease.
They are also part of the ALS Calendar Project and have several
interviews scheduled with ABC News to increase national
awareness.
We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your efforts,
Visits, random acts of kindness, and most of all, your prayers, as
we are trusting Jesus every step of the way. We continue to marvel
and give Him praise as we see His hand opening and closing the
doors He is leading us through so that He may be glorified.
We pray we can be the blessing to you that you have been and
continue to be to us.

Faith Baptist Church Newsletter
We had a beautiful day at Faith today. Our crowd was large,
and even though some of our folks were away getting that last
vacation in before school starts again, we had lots of visitors and
even more folks there than usual. The special music was excellent,
and Bro. Jackie did a good job in the pulpit delivering God's
message to us. Our Sunday school was great too and we are
forever thankful for the good teachers God has placed in our midst.
If you missed it, you truly missed a blessing.
Bible School started July 16, 2006 and will go through July 21,

Until we meet again, may God bless you and keep you happy,
healthy and safe. See you next Sunday, or at Bible School nightly
this week.
Dixie County Rotary On A Mission...
To Eliminate Blood Shortages
Much of today's medical care depends on a steady supply of
blood from healthy donors. Because blood cannot be
manufactured, the lives of the people in your community who are
in need of a blood transfusion are in your hands. Just a few
minutes of your time can mean a lifetime of tomorrows for up to
three patients.
LifeSouth and the Dixie County Rotary Club invite you to
do give something back to your community when they host a
blood drive on Wednesday, August 2. Look for the Bloodmobile
in the parking lot of Foodland in Evan's Square, Cross City,
between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. All donors will receive
a Blues Brothers hat and sunglasses, free cholesterol screening,
and will be entered into a drawing for a 25th anniversary Blues
Brothers movie DVD.
"We had our largest drive in years in March," said Carolyn
Quintanilla, LifeSouth's District Director. "and we're looking
forward to seeing everyone at the summer drive. Please don't
take a vacation from donating blood."
LifeSouth is the sole blood supplier for 39 medical facilities
in 17 counties in North Central Florida including Shands at UF,
the VA Medical Center, and North Florida Regional Medical
Center.

In Memory Of Robert E. Locke


Sounds fill the earth's
silence; a breath of new life
begins. A once trapped soul
freed, this soul bursting upward.
Heaven bound on wings of love,
dancing high among the clouds.
Golden prisms of light appear,
guiding the soul forward. Gone
is the fear of yesterday, for now
that the soul is free. Blessed by
the touch of many, loved by the
hearts of all. A passing from here
to there, a new journey that
began. See not the sadness, for
heaven has a new angel sent to
watch over us all.
Love your loving Wife &
Kids
"You'll never be forgotten or
replaced".


Robert E. Locke


In Memory Of Lauretta Beals
My sweet Lauretta, it has
been a year since you left this
place. People say time heals all
wounds, I disagree, nothing
has gotten easier for us, Mom,
Dad, Tabatha, Joshua, Melvin
and Tresia are still lost without
your voice of reason, your 7
smile, your laughter. Holidays,
Birthdays, Christmas will
never be the same ever again. I
took for granted the holidays
we spent together.
I figured there would be
plenty more! I wish I knew if
you were in a better place,
whether the pain is really
finally gone, you suffered for
so long. I guess I will never truly Lauretta Beals
know until we meet again. I'm
not scared of dying anymore. Just the thought of maybe seeing you
again calms me. I love you Lauretta and miss you terribly. You are
thought of everyday.
Lauretta Beals 10-11-1967 to 07-27-2005

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
At (In) the Last Trump.
I Corinthians 15:52 For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The Day of Trumpets was Israel's third feast, the Feast of Tabernacles or
Ingathering. Again the LORD is raising up a John the Baptist ministry to declare the
Day of the Lord. The voice once again is crying in the wilderness, "Prepare ye the
way of the Lord." Again the true ministers of God (trumpeters) are calling the
assembly of the saints into the unity of the spirit, to cast aside their carnal ways and
to hear what the spirit is saying unto the Church. John, on P4tmos, was caught away
in the spirit and heard the words of one like unto the Son of man calling the seven
churches, and the voice was a great voice as of a trumpet.
Revelation 1:10 1 was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and heard behind me a
great voice, as of a trumpet.
John, by the Spirit, saw the Lord's Day and saw things that would happen on
earth in the Lord's Day. Let us understand, the Lord's Day is not a twenty-four hour
day. It is not Sunday. The Lord's Day is the Son's day, the coming or revelation of
Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to
show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and
signified it by his angel unto his servant John.
When we have found God's true Sabbath, we will have indeed found true rest.
It is within this Sabbath that we have ceased from our labors and know that it is
God's will, in earth and in heaven, that is done.
Jesus did not come to create a Lord's day called Sunday. Some have
worshipped the day more so than the Son.
Galations 4:10,11 Ye observe days, and months, and times and years. I am
afraid of you, lest I have be stowed upon you labor in vain.
John was caught out of himself and out of his time and saw the great Day of
God, but nowhere can it be ascertained that His day is of a certain day in our
calendar week.
2 Peter 3:11,12 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what
manner of persons ought ye to be all holy conversation and godliness, looking for
and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire
shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt; with fervent heat?
Joel 1:14,15 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all
the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry unto the
Lord, alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from
the Almighty shall it come.
Now out of the body of God's saints shall the trumpet blow a call for the
Church to assemble together and the voice as of a trumpet will say to the Church.
"Hear what the Spirit is saying."
This message is to the seven-fold of this day. The message is to the complete
church of this day. Seven means completion. The message to the Church is to put
on the whole armor of God.
2 Corinthians 10:4,5 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty
through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) casting down imaginations and
every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into
captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
This is no time for pretty sermons and soothing words. This is the Day of the
last trumpet.
Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my
people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins.

The Mission is Possible


The March of Dimes North
Central Florida Division is
gearing up for its fall
fundraiser, Mission Possible.
Mission Possible
challenges anyone to raise
money to help in the fight to
save babies from premature
birth.
In the Tri-county area
alone, almost 800 babies are
born each year. Over 100 of
them will be premature and
face a long battle for survival.
The March of Dimes goal is
for every baby, regardless of
gender, race or ethnicity, to
make it the full 40 weeks.
However, the Mission can only
succeed with the help of
individuals or groups like you.
The Mission is simple,
contact NCFL Division,
Assistant Director, Betsy Trent
at (352) 378-9522 or e-mail
her at
btrent@marchofdimes.com,
and say "I want to join the
Mission to save babies." Or, if
you would like to just make a
donation, do the same and say
"I want to donate to the
Mission."


Then you will receive a
packet that includes the
background of March of
Dimes, how the mission works
and examples of some
fundraisers.
Fundraising is completely
up to you. You can follow a
few ideas from the packet or
come up with your own wacky
idea. Some groups in the past
held yard sales, chicken
dinners, and fishing
tournaments. Whatever you
do, do it for the babies, and let
everyone know you are a part
of the Mission.
More than businesses or
organizations can help fight in
the Mission. Families who
have suffered the effects of
premature birth or know
someone who has can join the
Mission. Family Teams can
make a difference too.
The March of Dimes began
in 1938 by President Franklin
D. Roosevelt. At the time the
goal was to find a cure for
polio, and it happened with the
support of those like you.
While we fight this
global war, we must see to it


FWC's Jacksonville Beach Field
Office Gets New Supervisor
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Jacksonville Beach Field Office has a new area supervisor.
Capt. Mike Edwards is taking over for Capt. Bob Donnelly
who is retiring Sept. 30.
Edwards, who has been with the agency for 30 years, has
worked in Nassau County for 26 of those 30. He began his career
in Taylor County and then moved to Nassau where he served as an
officer, an inspector, a watch commander and patrol supervisor.
The new captain's area of responsibility includes Nassau,
Duval, Clay, Bradford and Union counties.
"I enjoy my job," Edwards said. "I've been fortunate to get
plenty of experience in both marine and inland operations.
Edwards will supervise 42 people, including 32 law
enforcement officers and duty officers at the Jacksonville Regional
Communications Center.
Edwards also has experience with hurricane deployments.
FWC officers are normally the first responders on the scene after a
storm hits the state. Their specialized equipment enables them
access to devastated areas. Edwards is a member of the FWC's
Special Operations Group (SOG).
"I've been deployed eight times to seven hurricanes in the past
two years. The only deployment I've missed was the one we
participated in after Katrina in Mississippi. My son was headed for
his deployment to Iraq when Katrina hit," Edwards said.
Edwards' son, Sgt. Vince Edwards, is an infantryman still
serving in Iraq. His family is anxiously awaiting his return in
September.
"I do like the humanitarian aspect of hurricane details we're
involved with,"Edwards said. "People have had their lives ripped
apart and we have the opportunity to help them get back on track.
"Since I've been a resident of this area for so long, I know the
area and I believe I can do a good job here. I'm now working with
Capt. Donnelly who is showing me what needs to be done in this
position. I'm happy to be here," Edwards said.

that the health of our children
is preserved and protected so
that they may enjoy that better
world-for tomorrow's America
will be as strong as today's
children. We must help them
win their victory over disease
today," said Roosevelt in
1942, and it still applies today.
Premature birth is ten times the
epidemic that polio was,
affecting 500,000 babies each
year.
The March of Dimes is a
voluntary health agency whose
mission is to improve the
health of babies by preventing
birth defects, premature births
and infant mortality. Founded
in 1938, the March of Dimes
funds programs of research,
community services, education
and advocacy to save babies.

Recreational Use Permits
Go Fast Despite Glitch
In less than two hours, four wildlife management areas within
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC)
"user pay" program sold out of the coveted recreational use
permits.
Despite a computer glitch that intermittently blocked permit
sales for about an hour, recreational use permits sold out between
10 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. July 11 on Gulf Hammock, Grove Park,
Relay and Ft. McCoy wildlife management areas. This marks the
second time in less than a month the state's automated Total
Licensing System encountered technical problems issuing permits
to hunters.
"We are embarrassed and frustrated that the private vendor we
contract with has once again let the hunters of this state down,"
said FWC license and permit director Bill Hunter.
The last time the system experienced difficulties was when
alligator hunt permits went on sale June 15.
A recreational use permit allows the permit holder and one
dependent child (under age 17) to hunt, fish and use the property
for other recreational activities. With the exception of hunting, the
permit holder's spouse and other dependent children can fish and
use the property for recreational purposes as well.
Like the alligator hunt permits, recreational use permits' are
issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Unlike alligator hunt
permits, only one recreational use permit may be issued per person
for each area.
Some of the recreational use areas are in high demand, and
permits have sold out quickly every year regardless of issuance
problems.
There still remain several recreational use permits available to
hunters for Nassau, San Pedro Bay, Blue Water Creek and Flint
Rock wildlife management areas. There are a limited number of
permits for the Twelve Mile Swamp and Robert Brent areas.
Hunters can apply for recreational use permits online at
MyFWC.com/hunting or at any license agent or tax collector's
office.

The Buddy Show
by Buddy Mar/in
A whole bunch of nothingness
.If you listened closely over the weekend cupped your ear
to the north or maybe put a glass to the south
wall you could hear the official sweet spot of
summer. It always comes this time of the year, ,
about three weeks before the start of football. "
Post-Fourth of July nothingness. The
dead zone. Vacations on vacation. Prelude to dog
days. Baseball warm-ups for the pennant races.
And a television wasteland of celebrity golf, a
few baseball games and poker.
Which is OK, I guess, because we all
need a little down time prior to the long football
season which starts in early August and ends in early
February. Maybe this is when we reach for that book we've
been meaning to read, or rent the movies we missed in first
run.
It won't be long, gridheads. NFL camps are about to open.
College football is a few weeks ago. The first college
games on TV are August 31-four of them, the best of
which is South Carolina at Mississippi State.
You've only got 23 days left before the Oakland Raiders
play the Philadelphia Eagles in the Hall of Fame game in
Canton, Ohio. Until then, have a nice nap!
Meanwhile, the British Open starts this week.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. You know college football is in trouble when the
captain of the Harvard football team is suspended
indefinitely after allegedly breaking into the dorm room of
his former girl friend and assaulting her.
2. Steroids are one thing, but life is about to become
miserable for Barry Bonds, who reportedly is about to be
charged with tax evasion and perjury.
3. OK, I can understand the need for us to know
about the status of Barbaro, but the vets are stretching it
'when they tell us the Kentucky Derby champion is doing
better and "has a positive attitude."
4. Michelle Wie, forced by heat exhaustion to
withdraw from the John Deere, might need a few weeks off
at the beach with girls of her own age.
5. Friends keep telling me this movie "Cars," with little
machines that talk, is one of the best films of the year- but
it sounds to me like a remake of that old TV Show "My
Mother The Car."

Nothing But 'Net
(With help of Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Buddy's E-mail Bag
t.' Buddy,
I just wanted to write a short note
Complimenting the Sun on its World Cup
coverage. After reading the paper, I was
never in need of going to the Internet or
buying an additional paper to get the
coverage I desired. I think it rubbed off on
some friends of mine who aren't soccer
fanatics like I am, but enjoy sports. I had
more conversations about the World Cup this year even
though the US played poorly than four years ago, when the
US just missed the semifinals. Thanks for all the great
coverage! --Brian McVety, Port Charlotte
BRIAN: You have the distinguished honor of having
written is our first and only letter in praise of our soccer
coverage but thanks!
Buddy's Believe It or Not
(But don't ask him to prove it)
1. Over 40 per cent of McDonald's profits come from the
sales of Happy Meals.
2. A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will
bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the
glass to the top.
3. In Webster's 1996 Dictionary were misspelled, 315
entries
Clipboard
'Hey, I must have
misquoted myself'
For all of you Terrell Owens fans out there (both of you)
who hoped he had changed after being traded to Dallas,
consider my favorite choice tidbit of the week: T.O. says he
was misquoted in his own autobiography! And by the way,
it was co-written by the brother of his agent. Maybe it
would be a good idea to read it before sending the book off
to the printer.
Buddy's Favorite Florida Factoids
1. Miami Beach pharmacist Benjamin Green invented the
first suntan cream in 1944.
2. The nation's smallest police station is located in
Carrabelle on Florida's Gulf Coast,
3. Amelia Island, north of Jacksonville, is the only location
in the U.S. to have been ruled under eight different national
flag.
Bumper Sticker. Sign or T-shirt
1. No wonder I'm so messed up. My first life experience
was a spanking!
2. First the good news. I made the bail.
3. Proof is in the putting.
Today's Proverb
Love is temporary insanity curable by marriage.
And Good Morning
0 to all you good ol' boys in NASCAR. Looks like
you're just about to be joined by a lady, Danica Patrick so

Bronson
Announces New
Tax Exemption
For
Agricultural
Producers
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced that
a new state law that takes
effect this month exempts
electricity used for agricultural
production from the state's
sales tax.
"We are grateful that the
Legislature enacted this
meaningful relief measure,
which will assist our
agricultural producers in
helping them hold down their
production costs," Bronson
said.
Under terms of the law,
which took effect July 1, the
exemption requires that those
requesting it separately meter
electricity used in production
activities from the electricity
used for other purposes. If the
electricity is centrally metered
and is used for both tax-
exempt and taxable purposes,
the purchase of the electricity
is subject to tax.
The exemption covers.
virtually all aspects of a farmer
or rancher's business operation,
including the preparation,
planting, cultivating,
harvesting and processing of
agricultural products. It
includes aquaculture,
horticulture, floriculture,
viticulture, forestry, dairy,
livestock, poultry, bees and
any or all forms of farm
products.
To qualify for the
exemption, agricultural
producers must furnish their
utility provider with an
exemption certificate stating
that the electricity will be used
directly and exclusively for the
production or processing of
agricultural products.
Producers can contact the
Florida Department of
Revenue fo6 form's and' other
information dboutt the
exemption at
http://www.myflorida.com/dor
/ or they can call the agency's
taxpayer services section at 1-
800-352-3671 or (850) 488-

Understanding Cystic Fibrosis: Respiratory
Therapists Explain The Condition


And How It's Treated
IRVING, TX (July 12, 2006) Imagine your
lungs are filled with a thick, sticky substance
that makes every breath a challenge. Now you
have a good idea of what people with cystic
fibrosis face every day, say respiratory
therapists from the American Association for
Respiratory Care (AARC).
"Cystic fibrosis is a disease that is inherited
from your parents," explains Jerry Edens, MEd,
RRT, from Cincinnati Children's Hospital in
Ohio. "The main symptoms involve pulmonary
insufficiency and a general malnourishment, but
other aspects can include diabetes, digestive
disorders, and chronic sinusitis."
Since cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition -
Edens notes a child must inherit defective copies
of the gene from both parents in order to
develop the disease it is usually diagnosed in
the very young. Children who suffer from CF
face lifelong treatment to manage the respiratory
and digestive components.
Edens says respiratory therapists play a key
role in helping with the former. "At the basis of
the pulmonary condition lies a problem with salt
exchange. This imbalance causes the mucus in
the airways to become very thick and
tenacious." That, coupled with a condition
called brochectasis, which results in a
deterioration of the airways that makes it
difficult for people to clear the mucus from their
lungs, is the main cause of the respiratory
problems.
"Respiratory therapists are very
knowledgeable in many different therapy
modalities that will help enhance the patient's
ability to get rid of the mucus," continues the
registered respiratory therapist. The key, he
emphasizes, is to "adapt the airway clearance
therapy to the patient, not the patient to the
therapy. A modality is only good if the patient is
iin'compliance."
To help patients find the right therapy,
respiratory therapists work closely with the
patient's physician and family, trying out
different modalities to see what works best for
that particular patient. "Lifestyle, activity levels,
and availability of assistance are topics
discussed," says Edens.
Luckily, new therapies have emerged to
make treatment easier for patient and family
I


alike. "There are now devices available that are
very portable, and patients can take them with
them and use as needed. Breathing techniques
have also been developed that enhance mucus
clearance without involving any assistive device
-- only proper training of the patient."
As better and better therapies are developed,
more and more cystic fibrosis patients are
defying the odds and living well into adulthood.
Edens says the average lifespan for someone
with the condition is now the early 30s. The key
to determining how long someone will survive
appears to be when he or she first develops lung
complications and infections that fail to respond
to antibiotics. However, Eden says "Research is
continuously coming up with new advances and
treatment options. We are very hopeful that the
survival trend will continue on the rise."
The American Association for Respiratory
Care (AARC) is a not-for-profit, professional
organization, consisting of 40,000 respiratory
therapists, physicians, and other health care
professionals. AARC is dedicated to assisting
persons with respiratory diseases receive safe
and effective respiratory care.
Facts About Cystic Fibrosis
According to respiratory therapists from the
American Association for Respiratory Care
(AARC), cystic fibrosis:
Affects about 30,000 Americans,
occurring in one out of every 3,200 live births in
the Caucasian population and in one out of
every 3,500 live births overall.
Is caused by a defective gene inherited
from both parents.
Results in abnormally thick, sticky
mucus that builds up in the lungs and may also
obstruct the pancreas, leading to the inability to
effectively absorb nutrients, and block the bile
duct in the liver.
Is treated with respiratory therapy to
facilitate removal of the mucus from the lungs,
along with antibiotics to treat lung infections
and, in cases where the digestive system is
involved, pancreatic enzyme replacements, high
calorie diets, and vitamins to ensure proper
nutrition.

fibrosis on the AARC's consumer web site,

Gator Club

Hears Talk On

Suwannee River

Sturgeon
Mr. Frank Chapman,
Associate Professor of the
University of Florida Fisheries
Department, was our guest
speaker at the July monthly
meeting.
He spoke on the status of
our Suwannee River Sturgeon.
At this time there are 3000-
tagged sturgeon in the
Suwannee. They are tagged
with a microchip. The sturgeon
is the most valuable fish in the
world. A fish can reach up to
500 lbs. in the Suwannee. It
takes a female 30 years to
produce Black Eggs, Black
Gold, as it is known. 1 lb. of
Black Gold sells for over
$1,000.00. Each female carries
10 20 lbs. of roe. These fish
love the cool springs of the
river. They will spawn in fresh
water then return to salt water.
The first female sturgeon in
captivity matured in 1990. It is
a federal offense to be caught
with one, even serving prison
time. Mr. Chapman gave an
open invitation to everyone to
come by the Fisheries
Department to see his sturgeon
operation.
Our scholarship winners
this year were Miss Sarah
Durham, Dixie County & Mr.
Ronnie Ho, Gilchrist County.
Mrs. Carol Dawson won a
beautiful Gator Tag. The club
meets on the second Monday
of the month.

WELCOME
Board of County Commissioners
Chairman, John L. Driggers opened
the CDBG/ SHIP workshop with a
welcome.
DISCUSSION: CDBG
Mr. Dick Edwards, Community
Programs Consulting presented the
board with a proposal to change the
Housing Assistance Plan (HAP)
requirements. Mr. Edwards stated that
it isn't fair to those whose names have
been on the housing list for some time,
regardless of age, to be skipped by an
elderly applicant.
Commissioner Lamb said the county
has lost money before and he is very
apprehensive about changing the
requirements. He also stated people
who are able to help themselves need
to do so
Commissioner Lamb and
Commissioner Hays stated that the
HAP plan needs to be left as is until a
special need, or an extenuating
circumstance arises, then the situation
needs to be brought before the Board
of County Commissioners.
Mr. Edwards asked what are we
classifying as extenuating
circumstance?
Commissioner Hays defined an
extenuating circumstance, regardless
of age, as being a terminal illness,
paralysis, severe accidents causing
disability, etc. Commissioner Hays
said that when an application was
brought to Mr. Edwards, he needs to
determine if the circumstance needs to
come before a committee and then to
the Board of County Commissioners.
Hays also stated that the circumstance
must be documented such that anyone
who reads can make sense of
reasoning and why the decision was
made. The reasoning must also be
legitimate.
Mr. Edwards thinks that there should
be a 5 vote decision for someone to be
put into first place with an extenuating
circumstance. Commissioner Hays
concurred with Mr. Edwards.
The Board of County
Commissioners stated that there
needed to be somewhere on the
housing applications the following:
Those who qualify will not get extra
money if the house bid is larger than
the house actually costs. The program
will go with the lower amount.
DISCUSSION: SHIP
Dick Edwards, Community
Programs Consulting, asked the Board
of County Commissioners to set an
"up to" amount for the Down Payment


Assistance Program.
The Board of County
Commissioners stated that the First
Time Home Buyers Program needed to
be advertised so that the community
would know about the program.
Arthur Bellot, County Coordinator,
stated the opinion that $70,000 should
be set aside for the Down Payment
Assistance Program. However, this
money does not have to be spent in the
first year and the money left in the
account at the end of the year can roll
over to the next year.
The Board of County
Commissioners agreed that the Down
Payment Assistance Program will
assist those first time buyers with a
down payment percentage that the
finance company requires OR up to
$30,000. The assistance recipient


must participate with 10% of down
payment from their own funds. Also,
the recipient must keep insurance on
the newly purchased home. In case of
an Insurance Lapse, a certified letter
will be sent to the homeowner stating
that they must reinstate the insurance.

Mr. Edwards held the CDBG First

He also explained that the CDBG
Program federally funded through the

competitive and that Dixie County's

the past. He explained that Dixie
County was actually eligible to submit
two CDBG applications, one for an
Economic Development project and
one for any of the other three
categories of funding. He said the
application deadline was July 21,
2006.
Mr. Edwards asked Chairman
Driggers if anyone on the Commission
or in the boardroom had any questions
concerning the CDBG program.
Chairman Driggers asked for
questions. There were none and he
closed the CDBG First Public Hearing.
Chairman Driggers asked Mr.
Edwards if he had anything else to
report and Mr. Edwards told the
Commission that he had to conduct a
Fair Housing Workshop as part of the
CDVG application process. Chairman
Driggers declared a second public
hearing and turned the program over to
Mr. Edwards
Mr. Edwards explained the different
classes that are protected by the Dixie
County Fair Housing Ordinance and
informed those in attendance that the
Dixie County Commission was
opposed to discrimination in the sell or
rental of housing and that if anyone
felt they had been discriminated
against, they should contact any one of
several telephone numbers that he
provided and that the Commission
would investigate the complaint and
render a decision any violations.
Mr. Edwards asked Chairman
Driggers if there were any questions.
Chairman Driggers asked those in

home based real estate office.
Neighbor, Jim Hendrick asked what
would happen to the variance, if
granted, if the owner decided to move
or even rent the home out?
Billie Keen said that the office must
be within the home and that if and
when the home sells then so does the
office. If the owners choose, they may
rent the home out just as it was zoned
residential.
County Attorney, Lindsey Lander,
brought to attention that the law states
that the office may not occupy more
than 20% of the living space in the
home.
Mr. Hendrick's question to the

office then become a business?

matter who lives in the home or for
how long.

any stipulations that the neighborhood
may have.
Mr. Hendrick said that he would like
for Mr. Miller and Ms. Rendlay to sign
a. stipulation stating that if the home
was sold that the zoning would go
back to residential.
Mr. Miller and Ms. Rendlay agreed
to sign that stipulation.
Commissioner Land made the
motion to approve the special,

that if sold, the land goes back to
residential zoning. The motion was
seconded by Commissioner Lamb..
The Board of County Commissioners
approved.

McGeehan to request a variance on the
.property described as follows: 15-10-
13 Oaks of Old Town Subdivision, 445
NE 112 Ave.
Mr. McGeehan started building a'
structure with the measurements of
16x20 without permits. Now Mr.,
McGeehan wants a special condition
variance and permits for his building. '
Chairman, John Driggers stated the
opinion that Mr. McGeehan should be'
denied the variance and should have to
pay all the penalties for not having the
permits. Chairman Driggers also said
that Mr. McGeehan should have built
his building the right way the first
time.
Billie Keen said that he would
handle all of the permits and the
zoning changes.
Commissioner Land made the
motion to deny the variance seconded
by Commissioner Hays.
G. ZN 06-11, a Petition by Ralph

Commissioners told Mr. Dettor that in

made the statement that when a change

American

Legionnaires

News

"For God and Country, we
associate ourselves together".
These words, the beginning of the
Preamble to the American Legion
Constitution, were spoken by the
"American Legion Family" from
across the State of Florida this past
weekend in Orlando. Legion
Posts, Auxiliary Units and Sons of
the American Legion Squadrons
sent delegates to the American
Legion Department of Florida,
State Convention, in order to
continue this great Organization.
New Department Officers, as well
as new Area and District
Commanders, with their District
Vice-Commanders, were elected
and installed on Saturday evening,
after- the General Business meeting
was completed. New faces in
some cases, but the Legion and
Auxiliary programs are ;still
strong, and in support of our
Nation's veterans and
communities. What is needed is
the veteran volunteers and their
families to continue to make a
difference through these programs.
The new Commander of the
Department of Florida is George
Wehrli, from Post 57 in Lake
City. Florida's new Department
Vice-Commander is Warren Post
from the Lady Lake Legion Post,
and the former Fourth District
Commander, Phil Hearlson, was
elected as the Department
Sergeant-at-Arms for this year.
Jim Ramos, from Legion Post 149
in,,Newberry is the Department's
Children and Youth Chairman.
Assistant Department Adjutant,
.Larry Leuden-burg will be retiring
at ,the end of this month, after 20
plus years of service at
headquarters.
On a sad note, Past
Department Commander, 'Nolie'
Deas, of Ocala Memorial Post 27,
passed away last Friday morning.
His health had deteriorated over
the last few weeks. 'Nolie' was
always involved in the Legion,
and always recognized the Post
Adjutants for the hard work those
individuals did, day in, and day
oqut. His wry smile, his knowledge
and history of Florida's American
Legion will be missed. He is
survived by his wife Felicia.
Today, July 20, 2006,
Trenton's Jamerson-Sheffield
American Legion Post 91, will
meet in regular session at 7:00
PM. The Auxiliary Unit will meet
at the same time and there will be
a donation spaghetti dinner,
beginning at 5:30 PM. All
members are requested to attend.
Tuesday, August 1, 2006,
Newberry American Legion Post
149 will meet at 7:00 PM. This
meeting is also the Post Officers
Installation meeting. The new
Fourth District Commander, Ray
Hall and his staff will be on hand
to, do the Installation. All
members are requested to come
out to celebrate the start of this
new Legion Family year at Post
149 in Newberry. Each day,
remember our Armed Forces, all
around this world, in your
thoughts and prayers. Here at
home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows,
arid the families of those in service
to our Nation.

Bright Futures Medallion Scholars
Can Now Attend Florida
Community Colleges Tuition Free
-New Florida law offers 100 percent scholarships for tuition and
fees at all of Florida's 28 community colleges-


TALLAHASSEE Community Colleges and Workforce
Education Chancellor David Armstrong recently announced that
the Florida Community College System (FCCS) can now offer
reimbursement for 100-percent of tuition and fees for Bright
Futures Medallion scholars at each of the state's 28 community
colleges. This represents an increase over the 75-percent
reimbursement policy in years past. The legislation benefits both
current and new Medallion scholars.
"This new legislation will create even greater access to higher
education for many of Florida's students," said Chancellor
Armstrong. "Providing the Medallion scholars with an opportunity
to receive a quality community college education without having
to worry about the cost of tuition and fees is an incredible foot in
the door for them to achieve the career and lifestyle they desire."
New legislation, signed by Governor Jeb Bush to become
effective July 1, will expand opportunities for Florida's Bright
Futures Scholarship program and supports Florida's long-standing
2+2 system. The legislation, approved during the recent 2006
Florida Legislative session, enables Florida Medallion Scholars -
eligible high school graduates with a 3.0 grade point average to
receive free tuition and fees if they attend a Florida public
community college and enroll in courses toward an associate
degree.
Under previous legislation, Bright Futures scholarships paid
75-percent of tuition for Medallion scholars whether they attended
a community college or state university. Medallion students now
have a greater incentive to enroll at one of Florida's 28 community
colleges.
The new legislation will remove all financial barriers for
medallion scholarship students to go to any community college in
the state; thus allowing the first two years of their post secondary
education to be fully underwritten. These students could then
transfer to a state university and finish their final two years using
the 75-percent Bright Futures scholarship.
Florida's community colleges are gearing up to inform high
school students of this new option and to handle the applicants.
Many institutions are holding special events this summer to allow
priority registration and tours for the Medallion students.
The Florida Community College System, through its
Foundation for Florida's Community Colleges and in partnership
with the Florida Lottery and the Florida Cable
Telecommunications Association, is launching a public service
campaign to alert Floridians to the change. The campaign, to
begin July 1, will include television and radio public service
announcements, which encourages interested students to log on to
www.fldoe.org or contact their local community college for more
information.
The Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program was created in
1997 by the Florida Legislature. This Florida Lottery-funded
scholarship program rewards students for their academic
achievements during high school by providing funding for them to
pursue postsecondary educational and career goals in Florida.
During the 2004-05 award year, more than 130,000 Florida
students received funding for a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship.
More information on Florida Bright Futures Scholarship
Program can be found online at www.firn.edu/doe/brfutures or by

In late June, John & Anita Small, Theresa & Jeffery Lee, and Dr. Tom Fletcher were going down
the Suwannee River when John spotted something in the trees. It turned out to be an owl hanging
from a branch entangled in fishing line. John climbed the tree and cut him loose. We don't know
how long he had been there, but we do know he was tired and not hurt as there was no hook attached
to the line. We wrapped the owl in a towel and took him home. He was a beauty. The FWC sent
some one over to pick him up who would care for him until he was able to be let go. After rehab, the
owl will be returned to the wild in the vicinity he was rescued in.
Thanks for sharing this with us guys! This should be a reminder to ALL fishermen and
fisherwomen to make sure they collect any fishing line that gets tangled and caught up in objects;
whether on the top or the bottom. It is easy for wildlife to fly into the line. The same goes for
disposing of plastics, especially the rings off of soda can packages.
Thank goodness this story had a happy ending!
