Highlights

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners met on
Thursday, July 20th for their
regular Board meeting.
Several items of interest were
on the evening agenda,
including a proposed
agreement between the County
and Steinhatchee Water Board.
First on the agenda, were
several zoning change
applications. The first to be
approved was a petition by
Robert Doxtater to change
from A-4 to CN at Hudson
Heights, just past Lydia
Church on US 19. Doxtater
plans to build a craft store at
the approved location.
Also approved was a
petition by Will Detter. Detter
will be putting in a
canoe/kayak/outfitter store in
the Suwannee Palms
Subdivision.
The Commissioners noted
there hadn't been any
opposition on either of the
zoning changes.
Stephan Hurd of the Three
Rivers Regional Library
System came before the Board
asking for monetary help in
keeping the Suwannee
Technical Center open. Hurd
stated that state funding for the
center had been slashed and
they needed $7,000.00 to keep
it open.
The Board agreed that the
center was a valuable asset to
the community and approved
to put the additional funding in
the 2006-2007 Budget.
Dick Edwards, Community
Programs Consultant, reported

Commissioner James Valentine points to a three acre tract that will soon be turned into a parking lot for
boaters using the Jena Boat Ramp (bottom picture).


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
For months the Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners have been looking into
the boat ramp parking problem experienced
throughout the county and with the projected
growth of our coastal communities, these
problems can only escalate. At the last
Commission meeting, held July 20th,
Commissioners voted to purchase a 3-acre tract
in Jena that will help to alleviate a good portion
of the Jena Boat Ramp situation.
The first of this year, Dixie Commissioners
met with Taylor County Commissioners and the
Steinhatchee Boat Ramp Committee. Those
meetings became a dead end for Dixie residents
as Taylor County chose to build a new ramp on
the Taylor County side of the Steinhatchee
River. Taylor Commissioners were not willing
to, "Spend Taylor County money in Dixie", as
one Taylor Commissioner stated. Dixie
Commissioners bowed out of the talks and came
back to Dixie with a renewed purpose, to get
Dixie residents a place to park.
Commissioners were hoping to acquire
property next to the Jena Boat Ramp; however,
that proved to be impossible as most of the land
in that vicinity has already been bought, or is


out of the County's price range (millions).
Commissioner James Valentine was able to
secure a 3-acre tract located approximately 1/3
mile from the Jena ramp on the Jenkins Stewart
Road. The road is already county maintained
and is actually closer than some have to travel.
now, once they launch their boats.
The County will be paying $215,000 per
acre, a total of $645,000.00. Bids for the
financing of the property were opened at the last
meeting with. Capital City Bank being the
winning bidder. .,
Once the purchase is finalized, county crews
%ill begin the clearing of the property. The
parking lot will be lime rocked and will hold 70-
80 vehicles and trailers.
"This is the first step in easing the parking
situation here in Jena," stated Valentine. "We
are still working on getting additional parking
for the Dixie side of the Steinhatchee River,"
Valentine added. Commissioners are also
looking at alternative parking for Suwannee as
well.

If all goes as planned, the parking lot should
be ready for use by the end of the year.

The ACLU's ultimate dilemma
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit o
behalf of d Christian fundamentalist group that is organizin
nation-wide demonstrations in opposition to the country
increasing tolerance of homosexuals.
No, I didn't mean the ACLU was trying toshut down the fum
damentalist group, I said they were taking up the cause for
Christian organization, even to the extent of initiating a lawsuit i
hopes of circumventing a law that restricts that group from holding
demonstrations at specified times and places.
Has the ACLU finally seen the light? Have they renounced the
ongoing antipathy toward Christianity and, like the Apostle Pau
had a Damascus Road experience and shifted their agenda 18
degrees?
Not so's you could notice it. Just as I was considering signing
up after all these years, during which time the ACLU has anxiously
solicited my participation and once even went so far as to send i
a temporary membership card, I read further into the accour
published Sunday in the Washington Post.
The group in question is the Kansas City, Missouri-base
Westboro Baptist Church, certain members of which got int
trouble with the law for staging a protest demonstration at th
funeral of an American soldier who lost his life in defense of o01
country.
Now, that's a demonstration that the ACLU would support t
the max if it were carried on by Cindy Sheehan, the Dixie Chick
or even the local chapter of Hezbollah. But a Christian church
Something here just ain't right. Why would a Christian church b
staging a protest demonstration at the funeral of an America
serviceman?
Turns out it's because the church is protesting our involvement
in the War on Terror, alleging that the problems our military ar
experiencing in the Middle East are due to the fact that our culture
has become more accepting of homosexuality, for which reason w
should nnot be supporting our military. (An odd approach to logi4
perhaps?)
For whatever it's worth, they also believe that this is wh
several coal miners were killed on the job last year. God'
judgment on our heathen nation and all that.
It would seem a more appropriate way for a Christian organ
ization to object to a war would be not to volunteer for service
therein, but I rather expect they've already included this in the
policy manual. As for the coal miners, they could always boyco
the industry by cutting their own firewood.
As for the military's policy towards homosexuals, traditionally
they were discharged with what was known as a "Section eight,
which does not exactly meet the criteria for a good conduct meda
Clinton's "don't ask, don't tell" policy has modified the stigm
somewhat, however cross-dressing and other such behavior is sti
not permitted in the military. As for the coal miners, it is a fact the
pansies do not flourish in deep, underground caverns thoughg
perhaps in other places where the sun don't shine).
If the Westboro Baptist Church wishes to protest against ou
culture's tolerance of homosexuals, they might try showing up at
"gay pride" parade in San Francisco or on one of those special day
set aside for those of that persuasion at Disney World. Howeve
protesting at soldiers' funerals is beneath contempt, there are law
against it, and if those laws land a few members of the Westbor
Baptist Church in jail, so much the better.
All things considered, it- must have been a tough call for th
ACLU. Obviously, they favor anti-war protests at soldiers' funerals
but they're also big-time advocates for gay rights and they mus
find it especially frustrating to come to the aid of an ostensibly
Christian church.
So, how did the ACLU resolve this apparent conflict of sel:
interest and go with the Westboro Baptists? I would venture a gues
that it was because this course of action offered them what seemed
like the best opportunity to fan the flames of dissent in this county
whose civil liberties they pretend to champion.


Letter To The Editor
What's My Purpose
In my previous articles to the public, I have gotten the same
question asked to me, "what's your purpose?" My purpose is the
hope that the people of Planet Earth will realize what a
tremendous privilege it is to live on such a planet alive and
beautiful as ours. Compare our Earth to other planets of the
Universe where no life exists, that's when we should be in awe
of how fortunate we are to be alive.
Even with our short lives, whether it's five, fifty, or one
hundred years of age we should at least try to learn or be
interested in, the "Knowledge of our Creator."
In the Evolution Theory Mr. Darwin could not explain how
or when the microorganism came into existence.
Who else, but us humans would be capable of learning the
knowledge to destroy ourselves, when we should be grateful for
just being alive, so that we can enjoy the creations that were so
eloquently created for our enjoyment by a glorious Creator with
an "Omniscience of Love."
Life is like a first love, like a brother, sister, mother, or father
sometimes you have the privilege of grasping the truth of
knowledge of how important they are to you. And sometimes,
time runs out, but even though we live in a fast paced, world we
can stop for a moment, take a deep breath, have a good cry and
then reminisce about the fact that we're "Alive for Another
Day."
Another day indeed, to enjoy life to the fullest. No matter
how simple or important your daily life may be, add a smile, be
polite, because someone will be blessed and hopefully it will be
you.
And that is my purpose, to share a bit of knowledge and
motivate your mind not to destruction, but to share a little
compassion and kindness.
For that was the purpose of the "Mediator's Message;" to
teach and demonstrate that whether you're "Human or Divine,"
we all are capable of Love Compassion.
May God bless you with Joy and Happiness
H.P. Fuquay

Letter To The Editor
The root causes
The original impetus for the reconstitution of the ancient
biblical state of Israel was to end the anti-Semitism which so
deviled the Jews. The belief was that if you separate the Jews from
other people then there will be no opportunity for people to
develop negative feelings toward the Jews. However, it turns out
that whatever it is that the Jews do on a personal and a business
level to cause people to be anti-Semitic, it seems that they also do
on a national level because many people just became anti-Zionists.
That is, they are anti-Israel.
While Israel is trying to fix in the peoples mind that the cause
of this current conflict is the Hezbollah kidnapping of Israeli
soldiers, the fact is that this has long been a practice in the area and
practiced quite openly by Israel. Nor is the cause the rockets that
Hezbollah is firing into Israel. Hezbollah would happily end the
rocket firing if Israel would stop the bombing.
The root cause of this conflict is the ever bubbling Palestinian
problem, Israel's nuclear arsenal and the Israeli occupation of
Palestinian, Syrian and Lebanese lands. At the formation of the
state of Israel some 750,000 Palestinian were driven from their
homes into refugee camps. Instead of dealing with the problem and
)n offering justice to these dispossessed Palestinians, Israel has
ig clamped an ever more oppressive and unjust rule over these
's hapless people.
As Israeli rule became ever more oppressive and unjust the
n- Palestinian resistance became ever more radical. When hijacking a
a bus got them their brains bashed out u ith a rock, they escalated to
in hijacking airplanes and ships. When that didn't work they went to
suicide bombers. That didn't work either, Israel just implemented
more draconian measures against them which just ratcheted up the
ir cycle of violence.
There is no intent to deal with this root cause of this conflict.
30 There is only an intent to deal with Hezbollah itself which is in fact
just one of the consequences of this conflict. It won't work.
To those who disagree with my world view, I say, it is not my
1g worldview which prevails in Washington today. However,
ly prevailing is not the same thing as succeeding. Given the shambles
ae of Washington's policies we obviously need new direction.

I Oh! What a wonderful
amendment the American
people have to express fact,
ignorance and lies.
The Jews may not be
"God's Chosen People" in
your eyes, but you should
remember that Christ was a
Jew and died on the cross as
"King of the Jews".
Because you were there to
see this so called "Kosher
Dumpling Esther", it is a
wonder that your name was not
brought up in history.
The definition of Zion is the
Jewish people of Israel.
Zionism defined: Quote "A
Jewish movement that arose in
the late 19th century in
response to growing anti-
Semitism and sought to re-
establish a Jewish homeland in
Palestine. Modem Zionism is
concerned with the support and
development of the state of
Israel.
Having the friends I do and
knowing we have not chosen
each other because of religion
or color makes me the better
person.
Your neighbor and resident
of Dixie County for many
years.

GOAT OWNERS
BEWARE
Coyotes are hunting in the
Old Town Hammock area. We
have already lost 8 head of
goats.
The pack of coyotes are
killing two at a time. We have
called Animal Control and


Fish & Wildlife.
The only help we have
gotten was information from
the state on how to get rid of
them.
We were told we could kill
them, but not injure them. You
can shoot them, but can't
poison them.
We have put the goats in a
smaller area and surrounded it
with barbed wire and an
electric fence. So far that is
helping.
If you come across a
coyote, don't run...don't look
them in the eye. Backup -
looking down or to the side.
Be on the watch! They are
killers!

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2006


Emergency Physicians Urge People To
Team Up To Beat the Heat Children
and the Elderly Need Support When
the Temperatures Get Dangerously
High
Washington, DC- Hundreds of people die each year across
the country from heat-related causes, but the encouraging news is
that heat illness is 100-percent preventable. The American College
of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) urges everyone dealing with
extreme heat this summer to make a special point of looking out
for those most susceptible to heat illness.
"We all suffer when it gets brutally hot," said ACEP President
Dr. Frederick Blum, "But children and the elderly especially need
to be careful of dehydration and possible heat illness. They also
are often less able to help themselves when they begin to show
symptoms of heat exhaustion or heatstroke. Parents or caregivers
should make sure children get plenty to drink, and everyone should
check in on elderly neighbors and family to make sure they are
staying cool and hydrated."
Heat-related illnesses include sunburn, heat cramps, heat rash,
heat exhaustion, and heatstroke. Of these, the two most serious
conditions are heat exhaustion and heatstroke, both of which can
be fatal. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating,
muscle cramps, fatigue, weakness, cold or clammy skin, dizziness,
nausea or vomiting, and fainting. Untreated heat exhaustion can
progress to heat stroke suddenly, and cause unconsciousness
within minutes and may be signaled by feelings of uneasiness and
sickness.
"Because heat affects different people in different ways, it is
vital to keep a close eye on anyone in hot conditions for any length
of time since they may not realize they are in danger, "said Dr.
Blum. "If you see someone acting strangely in the heat, offer them
help as quickly as you can. We all need to look out for one another
when the temperatures get dangerously hot."
If you suspect someone is suffering from heat exhaustion:
o Help the person to a cool place. Lay the person down and
raise their legs.
o Give the person plenty of water to drink, or a sports drink
containing electrolytes.
o Even if the person recovers quickly, they should see a
doctor.
If you suspect someone is suffering from heatstroke:
o Immediately call 911 and arrange to have the person taken
to the hospital.
o Attempt to lower the person's body temperature as quickly
as possible by moving the person to a cool place; wrap the person
in a cold wet sheet, or place them in a cool shower, or place cool
towels on various parts of the heat victim's body.
Prevention:
Of course, it's best to avoid the ill effects of heat-related
illnesses altogether by taking a few simple precautions. ACEP
suggests:
Hydrate: Drink plenty of water during the day, especially if you
are engaged in any strenuous activity. Sports drinks are a good
choice of you're exercising or working in hot conditions, but water
is a good way to hydrate as well.
Ventilate: Stay in a place where there is plenty of air
circulating to keep your body cool. If you are indoors and don't
have access to air conditioning, open windows and use a fan.
Cover Up: Wear light-colored and loose-fitting clothing to
avoid absorbing the sun's light and trapping heat. Wear a hat to
shield yourself from the sun, but once you feel yourself getting
warm, remove any items covering your head which can trap heat
close to your body.
Limit Activity: Heatstroke can occur in less than an hour when
.you are participating in strenuous activity during a hot day. If you
feel yourself getting hot or light-headed, stop your activity and rest
in a cool place out of the sun. Be sure to drink water or a sports
drink before, during, and after any strenuous activity.

"HIGHLIGHTS"
Continued from page 1

to the Board that the Dixie
County Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG) in the Housing
Revitalization category for
$750,000 had been submitted
to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs.
Edwards also noted the
SHIP Housing Assistance Plan
(HAP) amendment had been
completed and ready for the
Commission's Chairman to
sign. This resolution will
create the Down Payment
Assistance Strategy which will
allow some SHIP funding to be
used as down payment
assistance for Dixie residents
that qualify.
Rex Dunn, Manager of the
Steinhatchee Water
Association came before the
Commissioners to give them
an opportunity to ask questions
they may have had concerning
the proposed agreement
between the County and
Association pertaining to water
and sewage service to Jena.
Over the past several
months, County Coordinator
Arthur Bellot and
Commissioner James
Valentine, along with County
Attorney Lindsey Lander, have
met with the Water
Association to work out an
agreement that would be both
beneficial to the residents of
Jena, but as a savings to the
county as a whole.
While the proposal has not
yet been finalized, Lander
recommended the Commission
go ahead with the plan.
Lander noted that there
would NOT be a mandatory
hookup for existing Jena
customers; only for new
residents to the area.
It is the concern of the
Board that current growth in
the area will surpass any
attempt to secure funding for
separate water and sewage
projects, as well as having time
to construct such a venture.
The Steinhatchee Water
Association is already working
on getting the infrastructure in
for the new sewage plant as
well as for additional water
lines that will be needed for
the growth.
On August 21st
Steinhatchee Water
Association will hold a special
meeting to approve the
contract between Dixie County
and themselves in order to give
Dixie County permanent
representation on the Water
Board.
Once the agreement is
made final, Jena residents can
expect sewer service to be
made available by the first
quarter of 2007. Water service
is already available.
The Commissioners feel
this is the best course of action
to insure services continue to
be provided to the Dixie
residents.
The next Board meeting
will be held on Thursday,
August 3rd at 10:00 AM.

Old age is the most unex-
pected of all the things
that happen to a man.

"SUMMER FOOD"
Continued from page 1

Beginning June 1s, District Food Services prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner to area children,
up to age 18. During the first few weeks there were 23 different sites where the free meals were
made available. The program even took advantage of a number of the Vacation Bible School
classes, serving up over 2,200 suppers.
"The program is similar to the National School Lunch Program", explained Linda Fowler, Food
Services Coordinator. "Our goal is to provide nutritional meals during the summer vacation months
to children throughout the county; extending the school lunch program through summer vacation,"
she added.
Meals were prepared at Ruth Rains Middle School cafeteria by District Lunchroom Staff. All
costs involved in the program are reimbursed to the District by the Federal Government. In the past,
the summer program was a voluntary program. This year it was mandated that each school district
provide some type of meal service.
In talking to several students and parents who were taking advantage of the program, the lunch
staff was given "thumbs up" for the quality and quantity of the food. On the day we visited the Cross
City Park site, the meal consisted of a hot hamburger, apple sauce, fruit juice, milk and cookies.
"The kids look forward to coming to the park and eating and playing," stated Tammy Marshall,
mother of three. "It's like going on a picnic," she added.
Fowler stated she was pleased with the participation this year. She added there was no shortage
of volunteers to make deliveries, or places to set up meal sites. "The staff and I would like to thank
everyone involved in the program this year," stated Fowler. "It was a true team effort." And from
the figures, very successful!

The Word

Made Flesh
Mark, Number, & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I, the
s9n of man, say what will happen to
these laws that man has put together to
show what the church believes? The
powers of our church organizations
will be shaken into nothingness as
God's voice blasts out on the waters.
Trouble will spread into all nations. It
will spread into every government.
Disorganized powers will rise up
Efid take over among the people.
''-..there shall be a time of trouble,
such as never was since there was a
nation even to that same time." (Daniel
1,2:1) I1, the son of man, say this beast
in Revelation 13, will continue the
same amount of time that the Gentiles
tread the Holy City under foot. This
beast was given power over all
lindred, tongues, and nations.
:- The beast makes war with the
sints and overcomes them. "And all
tlat dwell upon the earth shall
worship him, whose names are not
Written in the book of life of the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the
world". (Revelation 13:8) This is
certainly talking about religious power
working in the human race. They that
dwell on the earth shall wonder whose
n~mes are not written in the book of
life from the foundation of the world,
When they behold the beast that was,
;nd is not, and yet is.
, (Revelation 17:8) I, the son of
man, say the woman and man of today,
small and great, rich and poor, free and
bbnded, who are carnal minded will
road this and never know one thing
about what they are reading. The main
reason for them not understanding is
the angel of Jesus Christ is not in the
churches to testify of these things.
(Read Revelation 1:1 and Revelation
22:16) Jesus has already said to us. "At
that day ye shall know that I am in my
Father, and ye in me, and I in you."
(St. John 14:20) I, the son of man, say
the angel of Jesus Christ will lead his
pople out of this great harlot system
tat is appearing before us. The saints
if God will recognize the beast as they
q~cept the coming of Jesus Christ into
the earth (people).
' They will hear the voice of the
Qord, and a stranger they will not
Hollow. "If the Son therefore shall
make you free, ye shall be free
Indeed." (St. John 8:36). Continued
pext week.

Faith Baptist Church News
We thank God for the beautiful rain He sent our way this week
and for all the blessings He continues to send our way. Our
services today were very special in every way. Sister Janet O'Steen
safig "Thank You Lord for Blessings on Me" in the morning
service and she did a wonderful job as usual. Buddy and Dot
Britton and Kacie Crenshaw did several instrumental numbers in
the evening service and they did a wonderful job as well. We are
always thankful for His blessings and the talent He sends to Faith.
Brother Jackie did his usual good job in the pulpit delivering the
messages that God had laid on his heart.
Our Sunday evening Bible study continues to be wonderful and
enlightening. Brother Buddy does such a good job leading that and
we want to thank him for the time and effort he puts into it. If
you're missing this Bible study on Sunday evening at 6 pm, you
are truly missing a blessing.
Vacation Bible School (VBS) was outstanding this year with an
enrollment of 96. Souls were saved and lives were changed. We
especially thank Cheryl Lord for leading our VBS. It just seems to
get better every year. We also want to thank everyone who taught a
class, worked in the kitchen and worked with crafts. Thanks to
anyone who helped in any way.
:Next week will be our 5th Sunday. Remember to bring a
covered dish for lunch after the morning services and the night
service will be our 5th Sunday Sing. If you want to sing, please
contact Brother Kacie either at church or at (352) 542-9820. If he's
not home, leave a message and he'll call you back.
We pray that God will keep you safe, happy and healthy in the
coming week and remember to pray for a friend or loved one who
is sick or needs to know Jesus as their Savior. See you next week.
Calvary Temple News
Do you enjoy good Southern Gospel music? If so we invite you
to join us at Calvary Temple on Sunday, July 30th at 10:30 am.

Oak.

New Prospect Baptist News
We thank God for another great Sunday in church. Our choir
was outstanding, as was God's message from Matthew 25:1-13 so
ably delivered by Bro. Billy. As the invitation was given, we were
again blessed by a young family who united with New Prospect by
letter and baptism. What a pleasure it is to receive new members
into our church family!
We really appreciate the dedication and efforts of our NPBC
Nominating Committee, which has been working diligently to put
together our church committees and staff for the coming church
year.
Our Ladies' Ministry will have their monthly meeting on
Monday, July 31st.
As the flare-up in the Mid-east continues to escalate, please
remember to be much in prayer for our military personnel in
harm's way. Pray also for our President and other leaders and, as
always, be in prayer for those on the .church prayer lists here at
home.
We invite you to visit with us at NPBC anytime...all visitors are
most welcome! Have a good week, and may God bless you.
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 2:3
"God"
;I, the Day of the Lord, say God is life. He is uncreated: the reason why
He is uncreated is because life cannot be created, but it can create; for to
be created is to exist from another, and if life existed from another, there
would be another who would be life, and this life would be life in itself,
and if this first was not life in itself, it would either be from another or
froin itself; and life from itself cannot be predicated, because from itself *
involves birth, and that birth would be from nothing, and from nothing
nothing can b be born. I, the Day of the Lord, say this first, which in itself is,
and from which all things have been created, is God, who from being in
Himself is called Jehovah.
That this is the case, reason may see, especially if things created
enlighten it. Now whereas He is not, unless He also exists, hence esse and
exist ere in God is one; for whilst He is He exists, and whilst He exists He
is. I, the Day of the Lord, say this therefore is the life itself that God is,
and which is a man. That all things are from the life itself which is God,
and which is a man, may be illustrated from the man who has been
created, in that he, as to his ultimate principles as to his middle principle,
and as to his inmost principles is a man; for the man, who in the world as
to his life, hath been merely corporeal.
I, the Day of the Lord, say man is the most highly organized form of
matter in the world. Man must realize that God is man and man is the


existence of God. The life itself appertaining to him is a man, both the
sensual and natural as well as the rational, the spiritual, and the celestial
for so the degree of life are called; the man in whom those degrees exist, is
only a recipient. And as it is in the smallest types so it is in the greatest;
the universal angelic heaven in every complex is a man; every heaven by
itself, the first, the second, and third is a man; every society in the
heavens, greater and lesser, is a man; yea, the church in the earth, in
general is a man; also all congregations which are called churches by
themselves are men.
I, the Day of the Lord, say it is said the church is in the complex so the
church in the earth appears to the angels in heaven; the ground and reason
of which appearance is because the life which is from the Lord is a man;
life from the Lord is love and wisdom, hence such as the reception of love
and wisdom from the Lord is such is the man. I, the Day of the Lord, say
these things first testify that all things were created from the life, which is
God, and which is a man. Continued next week.

First Baptist
Church Of Horseshoe Beach
"Blankets of Hope"


I77


The ladies ministry at First Baptist Church of Horseshoe Beach
are making "Blankets of Hope". If you would like to join us in this
project, we will meet again on Saturday, July 29, 2006, beginning
at 9:00 a.m. in the fellowship hall at First Baptist Church,
Horseshoe Beach, Florida. Lunch will be provided.
What is Blankets of Hope? A long time very special project at
Soldiers' Angels, Blankets of Hope is simply that a blanket
created from love by our members to provide hope and comfort to
a wounded hero during one of the most difficult and vulnerable
times of their lives. A dedicated team of Angels works daily to
create homemade blankets adorned with beautiful artwork, pins
and buttons, drawings from children and message of hope, support
and cheer. These Blankets of Hope are part of our First Response
Backpacks that are sent to Combat Support Hospitals in the Middle
East, major medical facilities in Germany and around the world,
and to some military hospitals here at home.
Why give a Blanket of Hope? When a soldier is wounded, he
or she is removed from the battlefield and taken to the nearest
medical facilities to be cared for. That soldier is most often times Z
evacuated to Germany before making his or her way here to the
United States for further treatment. The soldiers' personal
belongings as well as clothing and personal items are not
immediately forwarded to him or her for quite some time and they
are often left with just the uniform they are wearing. The First
Reponses Backpack addresses the personal needs of the soldier,
but the Blanket of Hope provides something else it provides
warmth and comfort for the wounded soldier, and it provides that
soldier with the knowledge that someone cares about him and is .
thinking and praying for him at that very moment. This is a
powerful thing for a wounded hero. To know that someone cares.
We are very proud of this project and what it has done for those
brave wounded heroes.
If you have any questions please contact Gwen Ellis at 352-498- (
5966 or Diane Perez at 386-454-0756. For more information about
"Blankets of Hope" and other projects view the Soldiers' Angels

"Standing Next To Me"
I was just a little boy, when my Daddy passed away.
When his health began to fail him, he just didn't want to stay.
I can still remember when they found him in the woods not far
away, and I must have shed a million tears,
since he took his life that day.
Well as I grew up without him, I began to see, that when I really
needed him he was "STANDING NEXT TO ME".
Now there is just the three of us, Mother, sister, and me, but with
the help of the LORD, we will make it if we try.
We were blessed with good neighbors,
in this friendly neighborhood.
They would lend a helping hand in any way they could.
I may be small in statue, just a twig from the tree, but I feel tall as I
the tallest tree, when he's "STANDING NEXT TO ME."
Now when I'm tempted to do things I shouldn't do,
I can almost hear him saying, "Son I'm watching you."
Well times were hard back then and we did the best we could for, I
was trying to fill his shoes, in the way I thought I should.
I know I didn't handle things the way he wanted it to be. that is
why I need him everyday, 'STANDING NEXT TO ME."

The Buddy Show
by Budd'yMartin
Trouble brewing in Gator family?
There could be a little hostility brewing between regimes
of Florida football. Former Gator quarterback
Shane Matthews went on the radio last week and
criticized the spread offense of Urban Meyer for
failure to utilize the talent in the 2005 wide
receiving corps. He told Frank Frangie of ESPN
Radio AM 1460, that the spread may not be the
right offense for the SEC.
"Chad Jackson is as talented a wide receiver that
has ever played at Florida," said Matthews,
noting that he and other players like Dallas
Baker were under-used in 2005.
There is also a cool relationship between
Matthews, Danny Wuerffel and Kerwin Bell and Meyer's
offensive coordinator, Dan Mullen, which has gotten a little
chillier over the summer. At the BMW
Quarterback Camp (Bell-Matthews-Wuerffel) football
camp in Gainesville where over 200 prospects were
coached up this summer, an incident occurred that
reportedly didn't set well with the three former SEC
Players of the Year.
Apparently Mullen dropped by on his station-to-station
rounds to watch what was being taught and made a
comment about those passing routes that were not
being effective anymore. He was reminded that
they'd been pretty effective in the winning of six SEC titles
and a national championship.
Stay tuned.
Tiger missile is locked on
The frontrunner is locked on.
The New England Patriots are ahead, 28-21, as the fourth
quarter begins, with possession of the football at their
opponents' 30-yard line. What do you think the outcome
will be?
About the same as it will be today for Tiger Woods, as he
heads into the final round of the British Open at
Royal Liverpool, where he holds a one-shot lead over
playing partner Sergio Garcia and two others.
On the lead of a major after 36 holes, Woods has never lost.
Six times he's been there and six times he cashed the
winner's check.
There is this tiny bit of lingering doubt, however, about his
ability to intimidate others anymore. A piece
of Woods' heart is missing since the death of his father and
that beam-me-up concentration was flawed at
Winged Foot when he missed the cut.
One reason Woods is so tough to knock out of the lead is
that he knows how to protect it. He won't take
silly chances or make stupid mistakes, although he may not
hit every fairway and could very well end up
in bunker trouble.
Nobody is a more creative shot-maker, nobody is a better
escape artist and nobody is less intimidated by head-to head
competition than Tiger.
If he falters a little, Ernie Els will be right there to fill the
void, because the Big Easy is back and he'shungry for a
win-
It would also be nice to see Sergio keep pace with Tiger
and give him a little heat, because it's been a long
time between big checks for Garcia, who has never really
fulfilled the promise of his potential.
Some of us will also be pulling for Chris DiMarco today,

what with the heavy burden of having lost his
mother to a heart attack over Fourth of July.
So no matter the outcome, I'm not going to have a hard
time cheering for the champion today in what
looks like a memorable British Open.
Quick Jump Starts
-. 1. Those bunkers at Royal Liverpool
remind me more of fox holes.
-. 2. Where are all you people out there who
S'.. buried the Yankees a few weeks ago?
V- 3. Just looking at the brutal schedule, that
six-game stretch around Thanksgiving
could dismantle the Bucs' playoffs
hopes.
4. College Football Sneak Preview:
George O'Leary's Central Florida
team will be one of the surprises in the state (beware
Gator fans).
5. Auburn had 14 players chosen on the pre-season All-SEC
team, but no report yet on how many made the pre-
season All-Academic team.

Retief Goosen has gone back to the C-Groove putter this
week that he used to win the 1991 U. S. Open
... Bobby Clampett of TNT says that now Phil Mickelson
will be criticized by the media for "over

group of smaller radio stations to launch sports talk
in Washington, D.C. but the day he starts doing his own
show is the day I quit listening to sports talk
radio.

Buddy's E-mail Bag
Dear Buddy,
I enjoy your writings, although I don't always agree with
you 100 percent, I still enjoy. However, in last
week's Sunday's Best you commented that the vets treating
Barbaro may have stretched things a bit in saying that he
had a "positive attitude." Having raised
Morgan horses for a number of years, I can tell you
that a horse can have a positive or even a negative
attitude. Let's hope that Barbaro continues with his
positive attitude.
Janet Freiberg, Port Charlotte
JANET: OK, you and several others have taught me
something about horses. I'll try to have a more positive
attitude about it.
Today's Corny Joke
A little boy went to his father and asked, "Dad, where did
all my intelligence come from?" The father
replied, "It must have come from your mother ... because I
still have mine."

Commissioner Speaks To

Tri-County Gator Club


Dixie County Conmmissioner, Buddy Lamb, guest speaker of the Tri-
County Gator Club. Pictured left to right is Dave Wilson, Tri-County
Gator Club Director, Buddy Lamb, and Tom Auvil, Tri-County Gator
Club President.

By Dave Wilson
Dixie County Commissioner, Buddy Lamb, guest speaker of the Tri-
County Gator Club. Pictured left to right is Dave Wilson, Tri-County
Gator Club Director, Buddy Lamb, and Tom Anvil, Tri-County Gator
Club President.
County Commissioner, Buddy Lamb, of Dixie County was
recently the guest speaker of the Tri-County Gator Club. His topic
was the need existing for a hospital in the tri-county area, of which
he strongly supports. Commissioner Lamb stated that he
understands the infrastructure of Dixie County isn't in place to
support such a venture at this time, but that the hospital is
desperately needed in the area. Whether it is located in Chiefland,
Trenton or nearby, it didn't matter as long as we had one.
Commissioner Lamb said that the wear and tear on the county
ambulances and gas consumption and time involved in the many
roundtrips to and from Gainesville is one less life saving vehicle
and emergency personnel that is not available to our needs locally.
The State of Florida rejected a Certificate of Need two years
ago over financial questions involving Ameris Health Systems, the
company attempted to secure the CON and build a hospital in
Chiefland. All indicators are that the company is in good financial
shape at this time. Once again Ameris has filed a CON application
with the state back in April for up to a 100-bed hospital to be built
in Chiefland. Shands Hospital is in support of the Tri-County
hospital application, however North Florida Regional Hospital has
hot given a definitive approval.
The City Commission of Cross City, Chiefland and Trenton
have written letters of support for the hospital. The public is being
urged to write letters of support. The decision by the State of
Florida is expected on December 15, 2006 for the CON
application. So the letters need to be written in support of Ameris
Health Systems, LLC for the Tri-County Hospital and sent to: Alan
'Levine, Secretary of Health, c/o Frank Schupp, 193 Ventana Blvd.,
Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459.

aims of the American Legion.
Americanism can be defined as:
the attachment or allegiance to the
traditions, interests, or ideals of
the United States; also, a custom
or trait peculiar to America; or
even the political principles and
practices essential to American
culture; essentially, the American
way of life.

indicated that if the Post had any
questions about this program to
contact him.
Third District Commander
Gene Street won this year's
Florida American Legion Press
Association Press Book Award for
his Post 383 Press Book entry.
Commander Street offered to
bring his book to Post 91 to show
how it was done and to help them
put together their own entry for
next year.

Levy County

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, July 20th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum.
Quilting went on the Log
Cabin and the Dresden Plate
but several took care of boxes
of crafts, fabric and what have
you that were brought in. We
have so much given to us and
each member can make what
she is best at. We appreciate all
that comes in, some wonder
why we sell for the upkeep of
the Museum but all it takes is
our time. Some times we start
projects and wonder when it
will be finished and then one
day we have it all done.
We had 14 ladies from


Crystal River to come up and
spend time with us. They
brought all kinds of food and
with our potluck we had a
great day. There will be an
auction here sometime in
August, will let you know
more about it later. We did this
for a year when we were
building the Museum.
Greg and six boys were out
Tuesday to do so much. We
know it won't be to long until
the grass will stop growing but
we will always need them out
here.
Lunch was so good with
chicken and dumplings,
deviled eggs, tomatoes and
okra, chicken salad, sweet
potatoes casserole, lots of
salad, brownies, pie, and fruit.

Chiefland Lions Club
Welcomes Speaker Pam Darty
On Wednesday, July 19, 2006, the newly-chartered Chiefland
Lions Club inducted three new members, and welcomed speaker
Pam Darty from the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.
Ms. Darty entertained the members with an informative slideshow
and talk about the mission of the Refuge and the problems and
concerns associated with this federal wildlife preserve. She
showed images of the largest bat house in the state, as well as
photos of the elusive salt marsh vole, only one of which has ever
been captured for study (and subsequently released).
The Chiefland Lions Club was proud to induct three new
members, Stacey Brown, Catrina Shepard, and Micki Faust at this
meeting. Last month new officers were installed to this club that
-was chartered in February of 2006. New President Deborah
Richardson, the branch manager of the Sunstate Federal Credit
:Union in Chiefland, is optimistic about this club's future and its
mission in Chiefland.
This Lions Club is the largest service organization in the world,
with clubs in over 190 countries. It was founded in 1917 and has a
solid foundation today. Its mission is simple: "to create and foster
a spirit of understanding all people for humanitarian needs by
providing voluntary services through community involvement and
i'international cooperation." Lions are internationally known for
their service and aid to the blind and the visually impaired, a
service that was initiated when Helen Keller was asked to address
the International Convention on June 30, 1925. As a consequence,
Lions were largely responsible for the adoption of white canes
being a symbol of the blind. Lions have established and support
numerous eye banks, clinics, and eye research, and Lions collect
over 5 million pairs of used eyeglasses each year, which are
distributed in developing countries. For more information on club
membership or to inquire about the next meeting, please call
Deborah Richardson at (352) 490-5700, ext. 5711.
The next Lions Club meeting will be held on Wednesday,
;August 2, 2006 at 12:00 noon at Bell's Restaurant in Chiefland.

Dear Dixie County Citi
The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires that
parents be notified if their child attends a Title I school that does
not make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). In Dixie County, our
Title I schools are Anderson Elementary, Old Town Elementary
and Ruth Rains Middle School. This letter is to serve notice to the
community that our Title I schools did not make AYP in the 05-06
school year.
Schools that receive funding under Title I, Part A, of The No
Child Left Behind Act, must meet 100% of the targets for
"Adequate Yearly Progress" (AYP) in each subject area. Although
all three schools had significant learning gains and improved their
AYP grading, they did not make the 100% requirement of federal
AYP and Old Town Elementary and Ruth Rains Middle Schools
have been identified as schools "In Need of
Improvement/Corrective Action."
Old Town Elementary School satisfied 92% of the total AYP
targets. Target areas missed for Old Town Elementary School:
- Math Students with Disabilities
- Reading Students with Disabilities
- Writing Students writing scores did not meet proficiency
Anderson Elementary School satisfied 92% of the total AYP
targets. Target areas missed for Anderson Elementary School:
- Math Economically Disadvantaged, Students with Disabilities,
and Total Students
Ruth Rains Middle School satisfied 90% of the total AYP
targets. Target areas missed for Ruth Rains Middle School:
- Math Students with Disabilities and Economically
Disadvantaged
- Reading Students with Disabilities
Anderson Elementary, Old Town Elementary, and Ruth Rains
Middle School are quality schools, and we are working diligently
for continuous improvement. Ruth Rains Middle School made an
"A" under Florida's grading system. Learning gains at all three
schools are ranked among the highest in the state.
As part of the School Improvement Plan for Title I schools, we
currently have the following programs in place to help improve
scores of all students in all subgroups:
- Scientific-based-research Reading program for all students, K-12
- Reading First program for K-3 students
- Intensive remediation mandatory for all students below grade
level
- Reading coaches in all schools
- After school academic services for low performing students
- Scientific-based-research alternative instructional programs for
struggling students
The Corrective Action Plan for Old Town Elementary and Ruth
Rains Middle School will also include the following:
- Old Town Elementary will be implementing a new Math
curriculum
- Ruth Rains Middle School will restructure the master schedule to
provide for seventy minutes of both Reading and Math instructions
The District Office also works for the continuous improvement
of our schools by providing strong, stable district leadership;
providing high quality instructional materials and professional
development for our teachers and staff; providing reading coaches
and providing technical assistance as needed; providing model
classrooms and assisting in the development of a focused school
improvement plan.
The District is required to offer parents "meaningful choice

options" if their child attends a Title I school that has not made
AYP. Because the district is a "single feeder district", the
Transportation with Choice option is not possible. The Dixie
County School District will offer the following two options for the
06-07 school year:
- Student will continue to participate in the academic program
he/she is currently enrolled in
- Student will participate in a Supplemental Education Services
after-school tutoring program.
According to NCLB guidelines, the District is required to
prioritize students for Supplemental Education Services based on
(1) lowest academic performance and (b) free and reduced lunch
status when delivering these services. Therefore, parents are
advised that first priority must be given to the lowest performing
students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Parents will be sent a letter if their child meets the criteria for
Supplemental Educational Services (after-school tutoring
program). Title I will have materials available at each school's
Open House to further assist parents with this decision.
Parents are asked to contact their child's school or the District
Title I Office at 498-6288 if they need to discuss their child's
educational options in more detail. The Dixie County School
District is committed to providing every student with the highest
quality education possible. Working together, we can ensure that
all students succeed at the highest levels.
Respectfully,



Dennis Bennett

James was only eight years WI-
old when he and his sister Terri,
moved to Tampa with their
mother; so he has few memories
of Cross City. He met with Mrs. :.
Elizabeth Dawson while he and
wife, Pat were here. Elizabeth
was one of Mrs. Franklin's 3rd
grade students. "She was a good
teacher," stated Dawsqn. "She
was a nice lady too," she added.
Mrs. Franklin's dedication to
her students and the community
was rewarded with a street being '
named after her, "Franklin
Street", which runs along City James Robinson stands under

Mrs. Franklin passed away in 1998. She worked as an educator
for 37 years before she retired. We can just imagine the number of
young minds she helped mold.
We hope that James enjoyed re-tracing part of his roots here in
Dixie County. I know that his mother would be happy to know
that she is still remembered and that her work here will always be a
part of Cross City's rich history.

Springhouse Quilter's News


From left to right, Faith Stanton, Dee Gay, Mary Rawlins, Ruth Nott
and Ruth Davis with
their card challenge block. Each quilt block depicts one card from a
deck of playing cards.
Springhouse quilters held their monthly meeting on July 11.
The meeting opened with a time of refreshments and fellowship.
The members are always excited to visit with their quilting
friends and share their activities for the previous month.
There was plenty of show and tell of projects finished since
the June meeting. The highlight of the meeting was a display by
5 members showing the blocks they designed depicting a card
from a deck of regular playing cards. The cards designed were
made to represent a card they selected, sight unseen, from a deck
of cards. Dee Gay, special projects chairperson, was in charge of
the deck of cards challenge.


Springhouse members are working on their community
project which for this year which will be a lap or a child's quilt.
The lap quilts will be donated to a nursing home and the child's
quilt will be given to children in need of comfort from a traumatic
experience.
The 2006 4-H sewing-quilting camp is now history. There
were 3 camps this year with approximately 30 young ladies
participating. The desire of Springhouse quilters is to instill in
these young ladies the desire to continue sewing-quilting long
after the camp has ended and that they one day might become
members of Springhouse Quilters.
For additional information on Springhouse quilters contact
Anna Gilliam, 463 7922 or Lois Scott, 463 2207.
