Football?


Bears Kick Off
Season With Jamboree This Friday
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Are you ready for some Bears football? Well, the time has
arrived and the Bears will be kicking off the 2006 season with their
annual Jamboree this Friday, August 18th in the Bear's Den.
The Bears will be playing the Trenton Tigers with the Junior
Varsity team kicking off at 7:30pm. The Varsity teams will play
the second half.
This year the JV players will be coached by PJ Hope with Paul
Bennett and Richard Whittington assisting. Coach Hope said that
his team is very young this year with only two sophomores
heading up the 28 man unit. However, Coach Hope is hopeful
saying, "They did very well in the Spring Jamboree, so we can
look for good things Friday."
Varsity Head Coach Brent Wilkerson is also hopeful that his
team of Bears will do well this year. "We have a very young
secondary but a strong defense," stated Wilkerson. "If we can keep
the defense healthy, avoiding any injuries, they should be able to
give the offense a chance to catch up," he added.
Wilkerson noted the team of 30 looked good during camp
several weeks ago. Held at Otter Springs this year, he gave the
Quarterback Club thumbs up for coordinating the stay and meals at
the popular spring.
"The kids worked hard and gave it their all," said Wilkerson.
"The team as a whole has improved over last year and if we keep
at it, we could make the playoffs this year."
Assisting Coach Wilkerson this year is Jerry Wayne Evans-
Defensive Line & Coordinator, Andrew Thomas-Running Backs &
Offensive Coordinator, Andy Chesser- Defensive Secondary &
Wide Receivers, and Mike Sauls-Offensive Line.
While the Bears are looking forward to Friday night's
scrimmage, they are really looking forward to their big rivalry
game with the Chiefland Indians on August 25th, at Bruce Boyette
Stadium. Coach Wilkerson added their two toughest games will be
with Ft. White (Sept. 29h) and Taylor County (Oct. 13th). "If we
pull those two games off, you will see us in thd playoffs."
GO BEARS!


Chiefland Man Prowns At

Fannbig Springs State Park
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The' Dixie County and Levy County Sheriffs' Departments
were called to the Fanning Spring State Park last Saturday, August
12th, to help in the search for a 21-year-old Chiefland man that
disappeared while swimming.
According to a Levy County Sheriff's Department spokesman,
Michael Jerome Grant had been swimming in an area that was
designated as an area for canoe launching and closed to swimmers
when he disappeared. Grant's friends told investigators that he
(Grant) had been kidding around throughout the day, acting like he
was drowning. However at around 7:00pm he dove down, returned
to the surface and then went down again, but did not come up.
Divers from the Dixie County and Levy County Sheriffs'
Offices and Dixie County Emergency Services went to the scene
and began their search around 7:57. Grant's body was found two
minutes later in 20 feet of water.
Park authorities had warned Grant not to swim in the area of
the Park that was the Suwannee River the day prior to his
drowning.
Divers noted the area he was found in was free of vegetation
and clear. His body did not show any signs of bites, bruises or
contusions. An autopsy hopefully will shed light on what caused
the young man to drown.
Dixie County Emergency Services Director Chad Reed noted
that this was the fifth dive since April of this year to which they
have responded.

Voting Machines Tested & Ready


For September 5th Primary

Left Judge Fred Koberlein and Supervisor of Elections Mae Beville, sign off on voting machines being
tested for the September 5th Primary. Right Commissioner Buddy Lamb is shown by Chuck Elton-
Technician how to operate the new "touch screen" voting machine.
By Terri Langford
Last week the Elections Office Canvassing Board met in the Commission Room at the
Courthouse for the testing of the voting machines that will be used during the September 5th Primary
Election. This year in addition to the Accu-Vote system used last year, "touch screen" machines will
be available for the disabled.
Several of the candidates were on hand to see how the testing process was done. The Canvassing
Board, Judge Fred Koberlein, Mae Beville, and Buddy Lamb were assisted by Chuck Elton during
the process as well as a training session on the new machines.
In 2002 the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) was enacted by the United States Congress, Florida
Law (97.0535 F.S.). In order to be in compliance with that law, the Supervisor of Elections
purchased the Direct Recording Electronics, (DRE or "touch screen). The DRE is made to assist
those who may be hearing or sight impaired. It will read the questions to the voter and simplifies the
task of voting with a numbered touch pad. The screens are large which allows for larger lettering.
Beville noted that any voter can use the DRE, even if they don't have a disability.
Currently the Elections' Office is seeking poll workers. See "VOTING''page 5

Way to go, Joe!
I never really heard too much about Joe Liberman until th
'2000 presidential campaign. I only knew he was a US Senate
from Connecticut and a Democrat, but when he became his party
vice-presidential candidate, we all got to know him a little better.
Presidential candidate Al Gore had problems. After living i
the shadow of the flamboyant Bill Clinton for eight years, he wa
struggling to overcome a personality his critics described a
"wooden." And he also had a credibility problem, not from any fou
deed he had done, but from things like saying he invented th
Internet and the internal combustion engine was the worst thin
that ever happened to the human species.
Joe Liberman didn't lend any glamour to the ticket, but them
vice-presidents usually don't. For the most part, he was (and sti
is) as liberal as anyone would have had to be in order to get on the
ticket; but at least he wasn't a loony-left nut case like some of th
.people who have risen to prominence in the Democratic Party.
Because of Liberman's popularity among Jewish senior citizen
in southern Florida, his party narrowly missed carrying a state i
which the Republican candidate's brother was a popular governor
Meanwhile, Gore failed to carry his home state of Tennessee.
Now, however, it seems that Joe Liberman's status with hi
party has dwindled to the vanishing point. Last week, he lost th
Democratic primary election for his Senate seat to Ned Lamont,
political novice with a lot of money and plenty of support from th
likes of Michael Moore, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
The primary appeared to hinge on one issue. Lamont is a cu
and-run anti-war activist, whereas Liberman persists in the weir
notion that our chances of survival might be enhanced by sticking
it out in the Middle East before we have to deal with the terrorist
in our own back yard.
Ironically, if the election had been held just a few days later-
after the British foiled a plot by home-grown Islamic terrorists t
blow up commercial airliners en route from Britain to the Unite
States-Connecticut Democrats might have awakened from the
somnambulistic condition long enough to re-think their rejection c
a seasoned senator who isn't of a mind to play footsie with
category of people who want to kill us all, regardless of political
philosophy or party affiliation.
As it turns out, Joe Liberman won't be the Democratic Party'
nominee, but he will still be running as an independent against
neophyte who nonetheless has the party's support, financial an
:otherwise. The Republican candidate has a minimal recognition
factor, and Connecticut is a "blue" state which also has a lot c
-registered independents. The polls indicate that, if the genera
election were held tomorrow, Liberman would win big. Whether c
not he can win as an independent in November will depend o
what happens between now and then.
- Republicans are hoping that Liberman, an Orthodox Jew, wi
re-think some of his liberal positions and emerge as a bona-fid
moderate now that his party has given him the brush-of
Meanwhile, the leading Washington Democrats are hoping th;
old Joe will give in to pressure to abandon his bid to seek re
election as an independent and just sort of fade away and b
'forgotten.
I don't think that's going to happen. Obviously, if today'
heightened awareness of the Islamic terrorist threat persists unt
.November, he will no doubt stay right there in the U.S. Senate.
Remember Zell Miller? He served Georgia as a governor and a
-a U.S. senator and was a stalwart of the state's Democratic Part)
-Eventually, though, he grew disillusioned with the direction of th
:party's national leadership, wrote a book entitled, A National Part
No More, and in 2004, he endorsed President George Bush for re
:election and was the keynote speaker at the GOP convention.
Will Joe Liberman will take it hat far? Not likely;, but neither i
he likely to vote in lock-step with the party that threw him over fo
a novice whose platform is essentially appeasement and surrender.


"Special Neighbors"

Letter To The Editor
August 10, 2006
Dear Editor,
I am writing to thank the people of Steinhatchee and Jena and
specifically a few of your citizens who reminded my family and
me about the meaning of "neighbor". After a wonderful weekend
of scalloping in your area with friends and family in July, we
experienced the nightmare of all trailered boat owners we lost a
wheel bearing (and the associated wheel and tire) while driving
down CR 358 toward our home in Lakeland. After the initial
surprise of seeing my trailer tire exit the fender and explaining to
my wife that the wheel that just passed us was ours, I was able to
pull safely off the road.
Immediately, Kenny, the young man who was traveling in the
opposite direction when the "event" occurred, joined us. For the
next ten minutes, every one of your neighbors who drove by
stopped to see if we needed help.
After struggling to find a local parts shop and finding out my
insurance company had not renewed my "trailer assist" insurance,
Kenny told us that he would go home and ask. About ten minutes
later he returned with his father.
To my surprise, his father didn't just tell us where we could get
help, but started to work on the trailer. I was relieved to see he
even had new bearings with him.
As we assessed the situation, I mentioned that the hub had been
damaged. He stated that the new bearings would most likely not
make it the three hours to Lakeland with the damaged hub, but
that his friend might have a new hub.
Shortly after this, another of your neighbors arrived with a new
hub and a full set of bearings. With the help of four of your
neighbors we were soon back on the road and made it safely and
uneventfully (except for our three year old getting sick!) back to
Lakeland.
When we offered some compensation for the two hours of their
Sunday afternoon, our "new neighbors" insisted that they would
only take enough to replace the parts they so graciously offered.
After we offered several times, they commented that, "you must
be from someplace where people don't help each other."
Unfortunately, they may be partially correct and I guess that is
what makes Steinhatchee, Jena, and small towns all across
America special.
I would like to thank Kenny, his father, their friends, and their
understanding wives for their time, expertise, parts, and for
reminding our children and us the meaning of the word
"neighbor". Hopefully, if any of you ever have a problem while
in Polk County I or one of the people I have told this story will be
at least as helpful as your neighbors were to us.
Thank you,
Douglas and Margaret Moody

Letter To The Editor
The weekend!
We worked all week and paid our taxes and had a few dollars
to enjoy with family and friends. We grabbed the boat and filled
up truck and boat with gas. Complain about the price of gas sky
high and off to the river we went.
Got to boat dock and found what a nice place, they really
fixed-up the park for everyone to enjoy. I'm glad to see tax
dollars at work. Up the river we went, enjoying life and relaxing
after our week. Life was good.
te We stopped and looked around enjoying our lives. Again we
or started up boat going up river when crash, bang, boom, glass went
's flying everywhere. It knocked driver from his seat to back of
boat. I was trying to get to him, afraid he has going out of the
n back of boat. He was yelling for me to turn off the boat. I did and
as he got to his feet.
as What had happen? A sturgeon had jumped through the
ul windshield of our boat. No, it was not a log or drunken boater, we
ie would have seen them.
.g It was an endangered sturgeon. He bent the frame and broke
the windshield of our boat. Glass and blood were everywhere.
n, Glass was embedded in us .We were shaken, but all right so we
ll start the boat back up and went to the dock. It was the end of what
at was going to be a good day.
ie Same day on the same river a person on a jet ski was not so
lucky. A sturgeon jumped up, knocking him off the jet ski and he
s ended up in the hospital.
in My point is we work hard and pay our taxes. When did our
r. lives become less important than the sturgeons? There has been
an increase .in this type of accident lately.
Sturgeons do not pay taxes or vote. What is the state going to
do about an increased population of sturgeons in the river now
e that they are endangering human lives?

is a fun way to spend an
evening, that it is in fact crime
and if caught, we will arrest
you," he added. "Graves
should be respected, and if you

being hit by cars. Please Think

-The Word

Made Flesh
: Mark, Number, & Name
:of the Beast
: Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say in this
Tbessage of the Number of the
IBeast, I am not ministering the
comingg of destruction. I am just
looking at the thing that is
bringing destruction. John saw this
Ihing in the sea ( people). To
prove this, I want you to turn to
revelation 17:15. This will prove
.what the seas are. John saw this
,ill-famed woman, riding a scarlet-
oolored beast upon many water.
-She had a sign written upon her
-forehead, Mystery, Babylon the
*great mother of harlots and
abominations of earth.
', (Rev. 17:5) These are the
same water that John saw the beast
coming up out of. I, the son of
man, say if these are the same
'waters, and they are, what are
,-these waters? Let us look again at
'Verse 15. "And he saith unto me,
'the waters which thou sawest,
where the whore sitteth, are
"peoples, and, multitudes, and
nations, and tongues." Out of
these waters the beast rises up.
The mark of the beast we started
in the. Book of Genesis. Now
listen to me very closely, I want
!you to recognize a scripture fact.
-: Carnality started back in the
4,Book of Genesis, but was never
recognized as being the carnal
inind until the Apostle Paul taught
,4t in the New Testament. The word
,Carnal is not in the Old Testament.
"You will find carnally mentioned
."'three or four times pointing
directlyl at adultery between man
.and % oman, but not the word
: carnal. I, the son of man, say the
camal mind was never recognized
10s to1 hat it was, until the Apostle
.-Paul came on the scene
Sminisiering what it was, and what
apnons this carnal mind would
take against God. The Apostle
-Paul said this carnal mind was the
,,very enemy of God it created
7:,.nmity. He said it was enmity,
'.Romans 8:7). I, the son of man,
lay in the book of Genesis look at
.ihis Enmity, which God put
between the devil's seed and
:E e's seed. I have pushed the
thoughtt that the devil has a seed
* and we must learn about this seed.
'-The devil has never lost his seed,
:'because he is still alive today and
'-manifests that seed. Continued
next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
Once again, it was good to be back in God's house Sunday and
hear his wonderful Word proclaimed. Our choir and musicians did
an excellent job in both morning and evening services, as did Bro.
Billy as he delivered God's messages from I Peter 5:7-9 and 2 Cor.
4:8-9, respectively. In addition, we were blessed with a beautiful
song by Bro. Jody Mayo during the evening service.
Our nominating committee made its presentation to the church
Sunday, and was happy to report that nearly all jobs are now filled
for the coming new church year. We thank God for those who are
willing to serve on the committee, as well as the many people who
willingly share their talents and skills in teaching, church offices,
cleaning, and other areas of service which contribute to another
smooth operating year for NPBC in the advancement of our
Savior's Kingdom. Our monthly Fellowship Supper is scheduled
for Wednesday evening, August 16th, and we're looking forward to
the "Oldie Goldie Banquet" on Saturday evening, August 19th at
6:00 PM in the NPBC Fellowship Hall, celebrating our senior
adults (55 and above).
We were pleased to have visitors again Sunday, and welcome
you back, along with all new visitors...you're always welcome at
New Prospect. As always, keep the prayers going up for those on
the church prayer lists, our President and other leaders, the
situation in the Middle East, and all our people in the armed
forces. Have a good week, and may God bless you.
A Special Thank You
The family of Annie Mae Valentine wishes to take this time
and opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks and love to each and
every one of you who showed your loving acts of kindness during
the recent illness and death of our loving mother. We may not have
told each and everyone of you personally but we want you to know

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"God"
Continued from last week. I, the day of the Lord, say the more
your heart begins to ponder and you meditate upon the magnitude
of redemption that is in Christ; of the splendor, the overflowing
love of God in His great plan of redemption, the more it
overwhelms and staggers the natural mind.
In fact the natural mind cannot begin to comprehend it and for
that reason most people will not believe it, but we need to seek the
Lord for the revelation of the Spirit to see if this be so.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Col. 1:19 "For it pleased (the
Father) that in Him should all fullness dwell. Col. 2:9 "For in Him
dwelled all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. "In Him all fullness
finds it's dwelling place. We don't see this in fulfillment as of yet,
but Eph. 1:10 declares now "that in the dispensation of the fullness
of time He might gather together in one All Things in Christ both
which are in heaven and which are on Earth."
Ultimately all things are to find their sure dwelling place In
Him, for it pleased the Father, that in Him should all fullness
dwell." I, the Day of the Lord, say in turning to Ezekiel 22:30 we
read, "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up
the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should
not destroy it; but I found none. "And then connect a verse in
Isaiah 59:16. "And He saw that there was no man, and wondered
that there was no intercessor, therefore His arm brought salvation
unto Him; and His righteousness it sustained Him."
I, the Day of the Lord, say in this scripture is the precious truth
hidden on the Arm Of The Lord as it also applies to God's chosen
vessels for that purpose, but right now we'll limit our thoughts to
the Lord our Redeemer. When God could not find a man that could
yet bring salvation, He Manifested Himself in a body as a man to
accomplish what no other man could do. His own arm brought:
salvation, and His own righteousness sustained Him. I, the Day of:
the Lord, say Gen. 22:8 At the time God was testing Abraham, and
he went on his way to mount Mariah to offer his son Isaac as a
sacrifice unto the Lord, Isaac said to his father, "Behold, the fire
and the wood; but where is a lamb for the burnt offering? "And
Abraham said, my son God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt
offering." It does not say that God will provide for Himself a lamb,
but it plainly says that God will provide Himself, blessed be His
name, He became our sin offering. Continued next week.

Making It In Nashville
"Making it in Nashville" is a six-part series written from the perspective of an up-and
coming country music artist trying to make his way in the Nashville music scene. The
artist's name is Kyle Wyley, and he's a hometown boy from New Mexico who's trying to
live his dream of becoming a nationally-acclaimed musician and songwriter.

This special series will feature a sweepstakes that gives your readers a chance to win a
trip to Nashville and tickets for the 40th Annual Country Music Association Awards and
their host for the show will be none other than Kyle Wyley himself.

The Beginning of a Dream
Clayton (pop. 2,524) is a small ranching community in the upper northeastern corner of New
Mexico. "You're out there in the middle of nowhere," says
aspiring country singer Kyle Wyley, who grew up on a ,
four-generation ranch well outside of town. "You really -. -
learn to appreciate and respect silence, the meaning of work
and how it should be done, right and wrong. It's just you, f
your family, the cattle and the horses out there, and you
have a lot of time to evaluate what's going on in your life." J"
In other words, there is time to dream-and that's
exactly what Kyle did. Today, those dreams have brought
him to Nashville, a thousand miles and a cultural universe '
away from Clayton. In Music City, he is taking his shot at | .
finding fame and fortune with only the power of his voice,
the caliber of his talent and the tenacity of his character.
Kyle still remembers how the dream began, 19 years
ago at a local state fair back home in New Mexico where he
accompanied his older siblings for a livestock competition.
His brother and sister went for a Sno-Cone and told 7-year-
old Kyle to wait for them in the cattle holding area. "You
get bored watching the backsides of cattle," he chuckles.
His solution: to entertain passersby in any way he could, including putting his mouth around an
industrial-strength blow drier (usually for drying off wet cattle) to hilariously contort his facial
features. He attracted a crowd and started charging admission. Before he knew it, little Kyle was
walking around the fair with 20 dollars worth of quarters in his pocket and satisfaction in his heart.
"I think that's where it began," he says. A desire had been born inside Kyle, one that would take
him a long, long way from home.
Keep reading Dixie County Advocate to find out how you can win a trip to Nashville to see
the CMA Awards with Kyle.
Bronson Announces Damage Assistance For


Aquaculture Industry
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
today announced that the state is receiving
nearly $3.7 million in federal funds to assist
.aquaculture operations that sustained damages
from the 2005 hurricanes.

The money, which is Florida's share of
a larger allocation provided earlier this year by
the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a
number of Gulf States, will be available to
aquaculture businesses in 36 counties that were
impacted by the storms.

"I'm encouraged by the rebuilding
,process that already is under way in the
industry, and this assistance will provide
,additional momentum for that effort," Bronson
%said.

Florida's nearly $100 million
,aquaculture industry includes tropical fish,
,clams, shrimp, food fish, alligators, aquatic
plants, live rock, bait fish and other items. The
hurricanes' storm surge damaged clam and live
rock operations while inland growers sustained
damages to greenhouses, fish tanks and other
infrastructure, as well as products, as a result of
high winds and loss of electricity.
To qualify for assistance under the
;program, affected parties must meet the
following requirements:

New Road Signs Up!
New road signs have gone up all over the local countryside. These signs, showing the
approximate edges of the Fanning Springs and Manatee Springs Watersheds, are to raise public
awareness of water flow surrounding the springs. The Florida Springs Initiative and the Florida
Department of
Transportation (DOT)
have partnered to make
this educational project
possible. The Florida
Springs Initiative has
been collecting data and
delineating many of
Florida's first
magnitude springsheds.
The DOT has done
similar road sign
projects for Wakulla
Springs, Ichetucknee
Springs, Silver Springs,
and Blue Springs in
Jackson County.
According to U.S.
Geological Survey Fact
Sheet FS-151-95, the
source of Florida's
spring water is rain that
falls on land
surrounding the spring.
Contrary to popular o h
belief, underground .
rivers do not bring
water into Florida from ..
other states. Instead,
rainwater replenishes
the aquifers which in
turn supply the springs
with water. The amount of water that flows from springs depends on many factors, including the
size of the caverns within the rocks, the water pressure in the aquifer and the size of the spring
basin.
Human activities in the watershed or "spring basin" can affect water quality and quantity in
the spring. If enough water is pumped from wells in the basin, water flow at the spring can
decrease. If excessive nutrients are used on the soil, they can leach into the local aquifer and cause
pollution issues with local wells and at the springs.
Those of us who live within these springshed boundaries can help conserve water and
improve water quality. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is working with the
University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Florida Department of
Community Affairs to provide guidelines for "Springs Friendly" living.
There are a few basic tips for homeowners. Nothing should be dumped into sinkholes.
Many sinkholes have a direct groundwater connection to the local aquifer, therefore what goes into
a sink hole could end up in local drinking water. The use of pesticides and fertilizers should be
minimized on lawns and especially avoid applying them near sink holes. It is also very important
to keep septic systems properly maintained so they function properly to keep pollution froin
getting into the local aquifer.
For more information on how to make a Florida Friendly Yard go to www.floridayards.org, a
tool for plant selection and landscaping, or to http://hort.ufl.edu/fyn/ for Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods information.

The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin

Gators Ponder

Schedule Issues
Just because ESPN.com wrote that the Florida
Gators have the toughest football schedule in the
nation this doesn't make it so. Clearly, though, .
Urban Meyer needs to set aside October for a
month of mediation, yoga and other stress-
reducing measures.
"Florida: In a word: brutal," wrote Bruce
Feldman. Well, yes. It's either going to be an
Oktoberfest for Octoberflop for Meyer's team,
which after playing Alabama at "The Swamp" on Sept. 30,
must face LSU at home, Auburn on the road and Georgia in
Jacksonville all in a row. The open date before Georgia is
the only breather.
The Gators must be careful not to focus too much
on that four-game stretch, however, because they don't
exactly have cream puffs for the first two games at Florida
Field -Southern Mississippi and Central Florida.
Meanwhile, Florida State and Miami start out by
playing each other, but it gets a lot easier form there. The
Seminoles' toughest games will be against Clemson, N.C.
State and Virginia before they get to the Gators in their last
regular season game.
Miami's schedule is patty-cake, too. The
Hurricanes' toughest outings after FSU are Virginia Tech,
Maryland and Boston College.
It wouldn't be terribly shocking to see FSU and
Miami meeting again as divisions winners in the ACC title
game, which will be played in Jacksonville's All-Tel
Stadium/
Quick Jump Starts
1. Reaching the 50-win mark was huge for
Tiger Woods, but it seems the stress and strain of life in
general is beginning to take a toll on his hairline and
otherwise youthful face.
2. I'm rooting for Ryder Cup Captain Tom
Lehman to win The International today and make his own
team as a player.
3. Notice how much better the Devil Rays are
looking these days, now that they're talking about Charlotte
,County as their potential spring training site?
4. Word on the baseball street is that Marlins
manager Joe Girardi and owner Jeffrey Loria are bickering
and you know who wins that one.

5. There's hope for me yet: Eric James, 33, is trying out as

a running back for FSU.

Short Stuff
Only t% o SEC head coaches call their own plays:
Georgia's Mark Richt and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier
... Spurrier's youngest son, 19-year-old Scott, has
transferred to Carolina as a walk-on wide receiver ...Coach
Rich Rodriguez of West Virginia says the spread formation
. in here to stay in college football, pointing out that four
teams won BCS games last year with it (Texas, West
Virginia, Penn State and Ohio State).
This Just In
The ACC's worst team actually got worse last
week when Duke quarterback Zack Asack was suspended
for ,e season for plagiarism. (Disclosure: I just plagiarized


that info from Mark Schlabach of ESPN.com)
Buddy's E-mail Bag
Buddy,
Like a few of your other readers I must fess up.
I truly enjoyed the World Cup and watched virtually all the
televised games. To put my sports IQ in
perspective, curling is one of the best
television sports ever invented ... no
S .. doubt about it. I also enjoy professional
"' hockey so I guess that puts me in a distinct
minority, but played at its best it is the
.. ... most exciting professional sport in the
* -" world and the NHL's rule changes have
gone a long way toward making hockey a
"beautiful game." Back to soccer. My
gripe is this. There were no complaints
about "football" when we had to watch
hour after hour of Mia Hamm and the U.S.
Women's Soccer Team. Why do you suppose we get so
much criticism of men's soccer? Can we not watch the best
in the world play and enjoy it, even if the U.S. men's team
deep-sixes itself.
David Baird, Punta Gorda
DAVID: We need to talk about that curling fetish.

Buddy,_ I really enjoyed your article (College football's
Garden of Eden). I know of some coaches that may be
squirming a little if they read it, and maybe some of them
are in Florida! Thanks for recognizing those coaches that
have done the best they could for sports, their team, their
school, and all of us. Keep up the good work._Ed Wilson,
Port Charlotte_P.S. I hope Larry Coker survives this
episode because he is a great leader!
ED: By "other coaches" in Florida, were you
referring to those at Edward Waters or Bethune-Cookman?

Patrice's School of Dance Holds 26th Annual Recital


On Friday, August 11 an FCAT Awards Celebration was held at Anderson Elementary School. The
celebration included numerous musical games, a DJ, a pie throwing and plenty of good food. A fun
time was had by all. The students left encouraged to begin preparing diligently for the next FCAT
assessment! (Do you know who is pictured with the pie on her face?)


Springhouse Quilter's News


This butterfly, which is a beautiful work of fabric art, is an
applique piece made by Ms. Alice Gilbert and was displayed
during the Springhouse show and tell.
:. Springhouse Quilters held their regular monthly meeting on
August 8 with 35 members and 10 guests present. The guests
were several of the 4-H summer camp members returning to show
the entire guild the projects completed during the summer
sewing/quilting camp. The ladies enjoyed seeing the 4-H show
and tell and hope that the camp will encourage these young ladies
to continue using their new skills to sew and quilt.
Mary Rawlins displayed her rag jacket she made to
demonstrate the project for the August workshop. The jacket
was beautiful and will be very warm. It was made using strips of
flannel but can be made using other types of fabric. The jacket is
reversible and will be perfect for the winter cold. I hope to have a
picture of this jacket very soon.
Dee Gay was collecting "ugly" quilt blocks for use in a
challenge for members to remake into a beautiful quilt block.
Every quilter has "ugly" blocks; these are the blocks that a quilter
thinks are not pretty or good enough to be included in a quilt.
Those members participating will certainly have a challenge
making the blocks into a work of art.
Members were encouraged to complete their community
project for the year; a lap quilt to be donated to a nursing home or
to be used by needy children. Lap quilts are great for wheel chair
bound residents of nursing homes and also great for dressing up
the living area of the residents. There is always a need for the lap
quilts due to the continuous turn over in nursing homes. The lap
qiuilt becomes the property of the nursing home resident and their
family.
' Raffle tickets for the 2006 quilts to be given away during
Trenton's annual down home days are available from Lois Scott
or Betty Willms, or any member of Springhouse. The quilts are
being displayed, alternately, in the lobby of each local bank.
Raffle tickets are also available at the time of display in each
bank.
Springhouse is beginning to make plans for their bi-annual
quilt show which will be held in the fall of 2007. Lois Scott will
become chairman of this project with assistance from Norma
Birman and all members of Springhouse. It is anticipated that
the show will be held in the same location as in previous years
which is the fellowship halls of the First United Methodist
Church and First Baptist Church in Trenton. Watch for news and
announcements on this project. There is a lot of preplanning that
has to be done before the show becomes a reality.
For additional information on Springhouse Quilters and their
projects, contact Anna Gilliam, 463 7922 or Lois Scott, 463 2207.
To those who quilt, happy quilting until next time.

Zenner Honored At IFM
Anthony A. (Tony) Zenner. Ph.D. was
recently honored at the Fifth World Congress of
the International Fluency Association held in
Dublin, Ireland. The plague reads, "In
recognition of exemplary service to the
'profession and those who stutter. For his
leadership in establishing the Journal of Fluency
Disorders."
Zenner is the founder of the Journal of
Fluency Disorders and was its editor for 16
:years. The journal, established in 1974, is now
the official publication of the International
Fluency Association and is rated one of the best
five professional journals in the world,
according to Elsevier (New York), which has
published the journal since 1977.
In his acceptance speech, Zenner related
the journal's struggle for existence. It began in
Cadott, Wisconsin when he contacted a
childhood friend, Bernie Dupey, who at that
time owned Cadott Printing. From the
University of South Florida, Tony worked on
professional aspects of the journal such as the
editorial board, soliciting manuscripts, building
a subscriber list, etc. while Bernie "pasted up"
the articles into a readable format, printed and
,bound the journal, then mailed it from Cadott.
Zenner noted Bernie's early contribution
to the journal, in the way of support, printing
and professionalism during his speech in
Dublin. He told his audience that the Journal of
Fluency Disorders could not have begun without
his childhood friend and printer, Bernie Dupey.
Zenner shared a picture of the steel building
where the printing of Volume I was
accomplished. He contrasted its humble
beginnings to the journal today, which is
distributed by a New York publisher, rated one
of the top five professional journals, translated


into several foreign languages
libraries throughout the world.

Sending Out Best Wishes To A Bit

Star With A Big Heart


For the past three years Tampa Bay Storm Linebacker, Nyle
Wiren, has been coming to Steinhatchee to scallop with his
friend, Tyler Osteen. Tyler and his family have gotten to know
the arena football player well, and look forward to his visits. "He
has a big heart," stated Tylers' Dad, David Osteen. "It's obvious
that he loves kids," stated Osteen. In fact, Wiren is an active
volunteer at the Cancer Center in Tamp. "He really gets close to
those kids," he added.
This year's visit brought sad news, as Wiren reported that one
of his cancer kids had passed away. The passing of the young
boy has been hard on Wiren and Tyler and his family just want
him to know they are thinking of him and how much they admire
his commitment to young people everywhere.

How Can The Social Security Disablity Spedalist At Integrated Family Services Help You?

If you are denied a Social Security Disability or a SSI Claim, it is often because there was a lack of medical evidence
in support of your claim or the Administration did not consider all your impairments or the Social Security Administration
failed to apply the correct legal rules. A Social Security Disability professional can give you advice about what you need
to do to prove your disability and help you gather medical evidence. A Social Security Disability professional can request
copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final disability claim. Professionals
specializing in Disability claims can request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and
cannot do because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.
Every day you wait to file is one more day until you begin receiving your money.
There is NO RISK to you. If we do not win you do not pay!

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 10th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
The Log Cabin was taken out
and next week we will put in a
"Carpenter Wheel". This one is
made with two-inch strips. The
pattern is a Log Cabin and will
take lots of quilting but it
really is different. Shirley
Murphy has finished another
top; this one is "Footprints in
the sand". Alice Mae has
finished a "Lighthouse" quilt
and it will be for sale.
Last Saturday we had a
beautiful dedication for the
gazebo and the Sullivan family
is pleased with what was done
to honor their mother.
Sunday we had the Home
Reunion here at the Museum.
with almost a hundred.
Everyone had a great time; we
had lots of children to get to
know whom they are kin to.
We are always so thankful for
the safety the Lord takes care
of us. S.J. Hall and his friends
came out and entertained
everyone and it was a great
day. Reunions are held to
know how everyone is and to
see how the children grow
from year to year. Now, we
look forward to next year.
Greg and six boys were out
Tuesday and got us looking so
good. We appreciate all the
things all the boys do and we
thank Lancaster.
Lunch was great with corn
fritters, okra, beans, potato

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 2006


Gallagher Kicks Off $250 Million

Program To Help Fortify Florida

Against Hurricanes
Goal is 12,000 homes in 12 weeks; 50,000 over the next pear
Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief financial officer, kicked off
the My Safe Florida Home program, a $250 million mitigation
program to help Floridians strengthen their homes against
hurricanes and to reduce property losses in Florida. Starting
today, Gallagher said eligible Floridians can apply for a free
home inspection and professional recommendations on how to
improve their homes' ability to withstand a hurricane. Gallagher
said that as many as 50,000 Florida households will be served
over the next year through this program.
It has been a priority for the Department of Financial
Services to get the My Safe Florida Home program up and
running as quickly as possible. Since the new law went into effect
on July 1, the Department of Financial Services remained
committed to their goal to serve as many Floridians as possible
this hurricane season, by having My Safe Florida Home open for
business less than 60 days of its creation. In fact, the Department
of Financial Services has already helped more than 23,000
Floridians find out more about how they can make their homes
safer against hurricanes.
"I applaud the Florida Legislature for providing a tremendous
financial commitment to make older homes more resistant to
damage caused by hurricanes," said Governor Jeb Bush. "With
more than three months remaining in the 2006 Hurricane Season,
I thank CFO Gallagher and the Department of Financial Services
for working to quickly implement this critical program. Fortifying
Florida through mitigation efforts will ensure our economy
remains strong in the face of future hurricanes."
"Before this hurricane season ends, my goal is to have 12,000
free home inspections completed and grants awarded to help
Floridians strengthen their homes and better protect their families
from hurricanes," said Gallagher, who oversees the Department of
Financial Services. "Fortifying homes in Florida is a common-
sense solution for the insurance crisis in our state. Governor
Bush and I are committed to building on the success of this
program and making sure every Floridian benefits by making our
homes and communities safer."
To be eligible to apply for a free home inspection, Floridians
must live in a single-family, site-built home with an insured value
of $500,000 or less and have a valid homestead exemption.
Documents verifying this information must be submitted with a
completed application. Floridians can apply on-line at
www.mysafefloridahome.com or by calling 1-800-342-2762 to
get an application packet.
Gallagher said that once an inspection has been done, the
homeowner will receive a report within 7 to 10 days that outlines
up to seven areas that could be improved to better protect the
home against hurricanes, an estimate of how much each of those
improvements would cost, the expected insurance savings the
homeowner would receive if the improvements were made, and a
rating of the home's current ability to withstand hurricanes and its
future ability with improvements.
The department has worked with the Federal Alliance for
Safe Homes (FLASH) to screen and train 130 inspectors to begin
work within the next two weeks.
An additional 400 inspectors are expected to complete the
screening and training required within the next 30 days.
Gallagher said that applying and obtaining a free home
inspection is just the first step of the program. Homeowners who
undergo the My Safe Florida Home inspection may also qualify
for matching grants of up to $5,000 to fortify their homes. As
directed by the new law to reduce hurricane exposure and
property losses in Florida, grants will be prioritized and awarded
to homeowners who live in high-risk, hurricane-vulnerable areas
of the state.
Gallagher said the department will also start screening and
,qualifying contractors to perform retrofit improvements this
.week. Gallagher also said that a registry of participating
:contractors by county and by the type of work they perform will
-soon be available on-line at www.mysafefloridahome.com or by
calling the department.
"We want to help as many Floridians strengthen their homes,
'while making sure that they get the best quality of work to protect
^their home," Gallagher said.
The department is partnering with city and county
governments, as well as non-profit organizations, to expand the
"reach of the program and to strengthen a greater number of homes
-against catastrophic storms. Gallagher said these partnerships
-will enable the My Safe Florida Home program to leverage
-resources and maximize reach by linking with local mitigation
,assistance programs already in place.

These words embody one of the main principles of the

Legion Constitution and speak of the mutual helpfulness of our
veterans caring for our veterans. When one of the members is in
need of help, the Post is there to do what it can to aid that member,
if nothing more than to provide moral support.
There is a place for you in the American Legion Family. For
more information about the Legion, the Legion Auxiliary, or the
Sons of the American Legion you can contact your local American
Legion Post.

If you have any questions about the Legion Family, someone can
answer them for you then. The Post 91 Family regularly meets at
7:00 on the third Thursday of the month.

Post does not know, the Post cannot help.
Remember our Armed Forces all over the world in your
thoughts and prayers every day, and here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows and those families of our
servicemen and women deployed, helping out whenever and
however we can.
