Investigation


2006 General Election Into


November 7th
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The 2006 General Election will be held on Tuesday, November
7th with polls opening at 7:00am and closing at 7:00pm. The
Supervisor of Elections hopes that voters will make an effort and
get out and VOTE!
There are six Constitutional Amendments concerning issues
such as eminent domain, tobacco use, DAV discounts on
homestead ad valorem taxes, increased homestead exemption, state
planning and budget process and constitutional amendments or
revisions.
Locally there are two County Commissioner seats and the
Clerk of the Circuit Court. The state election includes the Attorney
General, Chief Financial Officer and the Governor/Lieutenant
Governor. One Congressional Senate seat and six Nonpartisan
court positions will also be up for grabs.
The Dixie County Supervisor of Elections mailed out sample
ballots to all registered voters several weeks ago and those sample
ballots also appeared in the Advocate October 19th and 26th.
Additional copies can be obtained at the Supervisors Office.
Early voting closes this coming Saturday, November 4th,
8:00am-4:00pm. Absentee ballots need to be in the Election's
Officer by 7:00pm November 7th in order to be counted. Last day
to request an absentee ballot is November 3rd for a "mail out" due
to mail turnaround time. See "VOTE" page 5A


Suwannee

Burglaries

Continues
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Sheriffs
Department is currently
investigating several burglaries
that occurred in the Suwannee
community last week. While
there have been leads,
investigators are asking
citizens to help by coming
forward with any information
that might lead them to the
arrests of the suspects)
involved in the theft.
According to a DSCO
spokesman, the first burglary
was reported on Friday,
October 27th, with the second
break-in called in several days
later, Sunday, October 29th. It

This dredging machine (top) has been busy at the Hinton Landing boat ramp, pumping silt from the canal's
bottom into a spoilage site built at the top of the park (bottom). When complete, boats will be able to navigate
up the canal to the ramp.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Several weeks ago, dredging at the Hinton Landing boat ramp began in an effort to make the
canal going to the ramp accessible for all boats. The canal, which runs along the Hinton Landing
Park on the Suwannee River, has been a challenge for boaters for several years now as the built up of
silt has made it at times, all but impossible to navigate. See "DREDGING" page SA


1st Annual Dixie Fall Festival &

Gun Show "A Resounding Success."


.- m-S A ,- L --'- .I'" I
As pictured in this old photo at Fanning Springs, there was once a
"high dive tower"for those brave enough to make the jump into the
clear blue spring water, finding that it was also very cold!


Are you one of those "local
folks" that has spent many
memorable fun filled days at
Fanning Springs during your
youth? Do those summer days
of years gone by still bring
back great memories for you?
Fanning Springs has always
been a special place in Levy
County to visit, and many still
return to peer down into the
clear blue spring once again,
while they quietly reflect on
those moments that now live in
their memory...
Many years of private
ownership preceded the Florida
Park Services acquisition of the
Park in 1997. Since 2003, Park
Ranger Andrew Moody has
been researching and
documenting historical
information and trying to
acquire copies of "Old Fannin
Springs" photographs for the
Park's historical files to
preserve the Park's legacy.
Ranger Moody informed
this columnist that he believes
that a lot of local folks may
have old photos of Fanning
Springs in the private "shoe
box" collections. These photos
may indicate structures that no
longer exist and may have been
captured in the background of
the pictures. These photos may

Pixie SO Apprehends Sexual

Offender With Help From Public
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Several weeks ago the Dixie County Sheriff's Office mailed
out a special bulletin that featured sexual offenders and predators
that are registered as Dixie County residents. In addition to the
list of registered offenders, two offenders were listed as being
wanted by officials.
Last week Jerry D. Carter, 49, of Old Town was apprehended.
Carter was wanted for failure to register as a sexual offender.
It was noted that the mailing went out on a Thursday and
Carter was arrested Friday afternoon at a home located in Old

Amendment Eight looking better
: If I was somewhat ambiguous about the proposed Amendment
Eight on next Tuesday's ballot, please forgive me. I had not yet
become fully aware of what the liberal media disliked about that
measure.
Well, now I know. Last Saturday, the Gainesville Sun said to
vote "no" on Amendment Eight. Before reading the editorial, I
figured maybe that was because it left a loophole through which
three-fifths of the State Legislature could override a measure
protecting property rights, a weakness I had perceived in the
proposed amendment.
It turns out the Sun didn't like the amendment essentially
because it removed the option of abusing eminent domain from
local governments. Their rationale was that city councils and
county commissions could better judge when and if confiscating
private property for the sole purpose of increasing the tax base was
appropriate, than could the state legislature. But the question
remains, why should this abuse of eminent domain be allowed to
occur at any level of government?
However, the problem with eminent domain abuse up to now
has not been created by state legislatures, but by county and city
governments. If a state legislator had to rustle up votes from three-
fifths of the members of both houses of the legislature in order to
allow the city of Podunk Junction to "condemn" Iris' Ice Cream
Shoppe to make way for a Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Supercenter, I
don't think you'd find much abuse of eminent domain taking place.
Every legislator who voted to put Iris out of business could expect
to be asked by an opponent in the next election why he or she
didn't believe in the concept of private property after the voting
public had already made it clear that they thought otherwise. And
he'd also owe favors to 95 legislative colleagues who probably
didn't give a rodent's gluteal extremity who controlled the ice
cream cartel in Podunk Junction.
On the other hand, the Podunk City Council might decide that a
Ben & Jerry's would generate enough additional tax revenue to
give the council members a raise, and they could explain their
decision to the locals by citing the fact that Ben & Jerry's offers
gazillions of flavors, while poor old Iris only offered chocolate,
vanilla and strawberry, but I seriously doubt that three-fifths of the
Florida Legislature would find that a compelling reason to shut
down Iris' Ice Cream Shoppe.
SIt is significant that it would take a three-fifths majority for the
State Legislature to achieve eminent domain abuse, as this would
make it that much less likely to occur. For the Podunk Junction
pity Council, a simple majority would probably suffice. And we're
xot just talking about one small town, we're talking about every
City and town, every wide spot in the road, in the entire state, where
every citizen who owns a home, a farm or a business could be
threatened with eviction from his/her/their property for an
arbitrarily low sum as dictated by a government entity that, like
King Ahab of old, had designs on that property.
The constitutional concept of eminent domain was intended to


provide for roads, schools and other public facilities, not to fatten
the coffers of local governments. Florida's citizens should not have
to leave their homes or relocate their businesses because local
politicians govern with dollar signs in their eyes; but it is
happening i Florida and may other places in our country.
Like Amendment Seven (veterans benefits), Amendment Eight
isn't perfect, but we're better off with it than without it.

Correction
In the October 26th, 2006 issue of the Dixie County Advocate,
page 5A, a headline read, "Old Town Woman Sentenced 22 Years
Por DUI Manslaughter". It should have read 2 years instead of 22
years. Also we would like to clarify that the woman mentioned in
the article was found to have been under the influence of cannabis
and did not have an illegal amount of alcohol in her system,
although the original FHP report (from which we got our
Information) had marked possible alcohol related. We apologize
for the error and hope that the clarification helps readers
understand the full story.


THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : I am interested in
bidding on a piece of
foreclosed property that is being
auctioned by the Clerk's office.
What do I need to do? Also,
how can I get a list of
properties being auctined?


A. You may obtian a list of
properties to be auctioned due
to foreclosure in person at the
Clerk of Court's office, Civil
Department. That list may also
be accessed on the Internet in
many counties. You should
come to the clerk's office on
the day of the sale and register
with the Clerk. Chapter 45,
Florida Statutes, requires that a
bidder other than the judgment
holder must present a good
faith deposit of 5% ofyour
projected bid in cash or


Ellen Sands
cashier's check in order to
confirm a bid. You may contact
the Civil Division of the
Clerk's office for a written
policy regarding foreclosure
sales.


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


Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
I am a proud citizen of Dixie County. I have lived here all of
my life. My family has been involved in politics for many decades.
I dislike small town politics because of so much negatism that
comes of politics. One example of this negatism is the vandalism
of the candidate's signs and advertisements on our local roadways.
This year my uncle, Alton Land, candidate for County
Commissioner District 2, has placed many small signs along the
road way and many large signs with his picture on them. Most of
the large signs have been cut on and the pictures removed or the
signs have been written on, defacing the advertisement. Some have
been broken down and destroyed and some have even been
removed. Vandals have removed most of all the small signs.
Besides the fact that vandalism of these signs is against the
law, morally it is wrong. Yes, each of us has the right to freedom
of speech, but should voice their opinion to the candidate and take
their vote to the polls. People should not embarrass themselves or
the rest of our county by doing these things to make a negative
mark on the citizens of Dixie County.
Each of the candidates spends a lot of money buying these
signs and a lot of time preparing and placing them in the proper
locations for voters to see and read. To the person or persons who
are destroying these signs: how would you feel if this were done to
you or to a member of your family?
Please remember that we have people driving through our
county that might like to come back and make this their home.
Please let's not give them the wrong impression about our county.
We know we live in a county with wonderful, friendly and helping
people. Let's stand together and vote our choice on November 7th.
Ronda Berry
Dixie County Resident


Letter To The

Editor
On October, 20th,, while I
was in GainesiIlle af ia'doctor's
appointment with my daughter,
another Steinhatchee resident,
who does not have a phone,
came to my house to use our
phone to place a 911 call
concerning his wife. Matthew
gladly let him use our phone.
As a result of the 911 call
being placed from my house, I


now realize that many people
outside the Steinhatchee
community have been
unnecessarily concerned for
my welfare, and have: placed
mie oni several church prayer
lists.
We are so blessed to live in
a small town; because when
tragedy does happen, there are
many friends who will call out
to God on our behalf.
However, Matthew was not the
one who made the call, nor
was I the lady needing medical

"FALL
FESTIVAL"
Continued from page 1

The Dixie County Rotary
Club hosted the first Dixie Fall
Festival and Gun Show the last
weekend in October.
According to Club President,
Fred Koberlein. "It was a
resounding success. We met
and exceeded every goal we
had set for ourselves."
More than six hundred
people attended the first year
two day event which was held
at the Trailrider's Club near
the Cross City Airport. The
event had three distinct areas:
the gun show, the outdoor
booths, and the food court.
The Rotary Club started
planning the weekend only
three months ago. Most of the
participants also had good
weekends. One gun dealer
reported a "$1,900.00 haul."
The Old Town Elementary
PTO, the Dixie 4 H Club, the
Class of 08, Dixie County
Chamber of Commerce, and
Dixie County Historical
Society also contributed to the
success.
"We made some mistakes;
next year we'll do even
better." said Judge Koberlein.
Dixie County also
experienced a side benefit.
There were more than fifty gun
dealers from outside of Dixie
County. Most of them stayed
in area motels and ate in local
restaurants.
Hope to see you next year!



"SEXUAL

OFFENDER"
Continued from page 1

Town, based on tips received
'from the publication by the
DSO
Sheriff Hatcher would like
to extend his thanks to those
residents who called in the tips
that led to the arrest of Carter.
I The Sheriff's Office along
with the cooperation of Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement continues to
investigate the whereabouts of
Daniel L. Moore and has
received several-leads.,
Moore is wanted for
absconding (leaving) and
failing to register as a sexual
offender.
Carter is currently being
held without bond in the Dixie
County Jail.


"DREDGING"
Continued from page 1

This year the river's water level has been extremely low and has kept many larger boats from being
able to use the ramp.
County Coordinator Arthur Bellot was able to design a spoilage site that met with the Suwannee
River Water Management District guidelines. The site is located at the top of the canal on the park
grounds. A damn was constructed out of fill dirt, keeping the pumped silt in place until it can be
hauled off by county crews.
A county owned barge is being sub-contracted out by the dredging company Aquaco, under the
direction of Edward Parrott.
Through the public and private partnership, Bellot noted that there is a substantial savings to the
taxpayers. Cost of the project will be approximately $8,000.
The dredging of the 100 foot run from the river to the ramp, as well as a turn-basin area should
be completed by week's end.


"VOTE"
Continued from page 1

Polls will open at 7:00am on Tuesday, November 7th, and close
at 7:00pm. You must already be registered and have a picture ID
with signature in order to cast your vote.
If you aren't sure what precinct you are eligible to vote in,
contact the Supervisor's Office at 498-1216. If you haven't already
made your 911 address changes... PLEASE CONTACT THE
SUPERVISORS OF ELECTIONS OFFICE BY SATURDAY,
NOVEMBER 4THI
Results of the election will be made to the public as the
precincts are tallied, sometime after 7:30pm. Please try and refrain
from calling the Supervisor's Office for results until later in the
evening. However, you can get updated results from the
Supervisor's website at elections.dixie.fl.gov (note do not put
www before the address). Results will be posted as each precinct
is tallied. Please note, all results given on the night of the election
are unofficial results with official results due in to the state by
November 18th.
Supervisor Mae Beville and her staff have worked diligently to
get the word out to the voters and hope that residents take
advantage of their right to let their voice be heard by casting their
vote on November 7th.


"FANNING"
Continued from page 1

have been taken by their grandparents during the early years of
Fanning Springs; perhaps from a different angle of view that may
indicate something not seen in other photos.
Ranger Moody stated that now that the Fanning Springs
acreage has been acquired by the Florida Park Service and
protected from development, his mission now is to preserve its
history and legacy for Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy County folks and
the State Archives.
Ranger Moody is trying to locate and acquire copies of those
old photos for the Park's historical files. Were you one of those
children that skated inside the Fanning Springs Roller Rink, and
may have an old photograph of the inside of that building? Perhaps
you have a high school prom photograph that was taken at the
springs in a school yearbook. Maybe you have a photo that a friend
snapped of you jumping from the old dive tower into the spring,
like the one pictured above.
There were once carnival rides, a tour boat, horse races and
rodeo types of activities that took place during July 4th events at
Fanning Springs years ago....Were you there? Do you have a
photo?
SIn order to help preserve those wonderful memories, the
Fanning Springs Park Office will gladly scan any old photo you
have, giving you back your original. If you believe you can help,
please contact the Park at 352-463-3420.
We will be running many of the photos collected as on ongoing
column in the Advocate... be looking to see if you remember the
old days at Fanning Springs...


"BURGLARIES"
Continued from page 1

was noted that the burglaries
could have occurred within the
week prior to the reports as the
owners are part-time residents
of Suwannee.
Rod and reels, fishing
tackle, life jackets, etc. were
taken from both sheds located
on Leon Drive. Additionally, a
pressure washer was taken
from one of the residences.
If you should have any
information on these
burglaries, please contact the
Dixie County Sheriff's Office
at 498-1220.

The Word Made

Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast

Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say when you read
of the great creation of the Heaven
and the Earth, the figure Three
begins to show right in the
beginning. It was on the Third day
of creation that the earth rose up
out of the water. I like that
,because I brought this Figure
'Three all the way through the
,criptures and tied it in with the
,Third day when Jesus rose from
.the tomb.
For three hours He hung on
;the cross, in another Three hours it
"was dark (from six until nine). No
-doubt the Figure Three points to
,perfection more than the figure
,Seven, because it is used more.
Three days, the Lord said, I will
'lie there, but I will rise again the
'Third day. God has His own
:figures to go by.
*, the son of man, say may we
,earnestly consider again the power
:of the figure Three in the way it is
:used. Look how it controls the
inside working of the figures 6-6-6
:ind what they represent. I
minentioned earlier in this message
-the Four Heads that spiritually
:appear back in the Garden. of
.Eden. "...A river went out of Eden
,to water the Garden; and from
-thence it was parted, and became
-into Four Heads." (Gen 2:10)
SThese four heads that started back
there came up through the
scriptures as seen in the writings
,of the prophets: David, Isaiah, and
'Ezekiel. These Four heads show
%iup through the Four Winds that
began to blow through the
Heavens.
These winds are mentioned all
the way through the scriptures. I,
the son of rran, say Jesus knew
this was true when He ministered
the parable of the great storm that
was coming, and told everyone to
build on a rock. He said this was
wise man that would build on a
rock. The floods came and the
'winds blew and beat upon the
house and it fell not, for it was
founded upon a rock. This is
speaking of the Four Winds of
spiritual time that will come upon
all. But, if we are anchored in the
name of the Lord Jesus, we can
stand this oncoming storm.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"Wait till the waters return"
Continued from last week. I, the day of the Lord, say we are thrilled to
find this meaning contained in our text God Hath Devised A Means,
new, original, it is a cunning work of sovereign grace to bring His
banished back again. "For I know the thoughts (means) that I think
(devise) toward you saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to
give you an expected end." (Jeremiah 29:11).
I have shewed these New Things from this time even hidden things,
and thou did not know them. They are created now, and not from the
beginning; even before the day when thou hardest them not. Lest thou
shouldest say behold I Knew Them. (Isaiah 48:6-7).
I, the day of the Lord, say the creative acts of God are not ended He
is our own. "Faithful Creator" even today, working that which ages have
held in mystery, and we need to "commit" the keeping of our souls to Him
in well doing, as unto a faithful creator. (I Peter 4:19).
Yes, He is even now unfolding step by step the means which He hath
devised to reconcile us to Himself. I, the day of the Lord, say what he
accomplished in His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ is now being wrought
out in His apprehended first fruits. Redemption cannot be separated from
the creative activity of God. While the ultimate purpose remains, and
divine principle are unchanged, yet their in workings are unique within
each individual. A sovereign work by a sovereign creator. God hath
contained in Himself a work which even yet it is kept from manifestation.
The purpose of the ages lies within the mind of God, and He knows what
the ending of it shall be, but the expression there of comes only according
to His divine schedule.
I, the day of the Lord, say as our human spirit becomes one in the
Spirit of God, and He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit. We read in (I
Corinthians 6:17) we already are finding the inherent knowledge
contained in the spirit causes us to sense many things which we cannot
draw out and form into words for expression "Ye have an unction ( or an
Anointing) from the Holy one, and ye know all things." (I John 2:20).
I, the day of the Lord, say this knowledge is resident in the Holy Spirit
dwelling within but we are not able to solidify it into phraseology for
expression until its time. God does not move in vain repetition. While
there are cycles followed by cycles, and He hath said, "While the earth
remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat and summer and
winter, and day and night shall not cease." (Genesis 8:22), yet each cycle
is to further the work of God, steadily progressing toward the goal.
Continued next week.

Dairy Queen Offers A Sweet
Reason To Be Thankful
Pumpkin Pie is Blizzard of the Month for November
MINNEAPOLIS Modem-day pumpkin pie evolved from
the first Thanksgiving when the Pilgrims made pudding by
combining molasses with the inside of a pumpkin and then
cooking it right in its shell. Each year, Dairy Queen adds a
signature twist on this holiday dessert with the Pumpkin Pie
Blizzard, the featured Blizzard of the Month for November.
"The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard is one of the most cravable of all
,of our Blizzard flavors," said Michael Keller, chief brand officer
:for International Dairy Queen. "And it's a great time of year for
our customers to share festive stories and many smiles while
:enjoying the holiday season with us."
: Available at all participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill &
:Chill restaurants nationwide beginning Nov. 1, the holiday-
:Inspired Pumpkin Pie Blizzard first debuted in 1991. A fan
favorite, this irresistible treat is made with Libby's pumpkin pie
mix and pieces of flaky pie crust mixed with creamy DQ vanilla
soft serve, all capped with whipped topping and a sprinkle of
nutmeg.
Libby's pumpkin product became popular in 1929 when a
Chicago food company first canned the main ingredient for this
traditional American dessert favorite. Today, Libby's pumpkin is
used to create more than 50 million pies every Thanksgiving.
The average price of the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard is $2.59 for
the 12 oz., $3.00 for the 16 oz. and $3.50 for the 21 oz.
Dairy Queen began blending simple combinations of cookies,
candies, fruit, nuts and DQ soft serve 21 years ago to create the
signature Blizzard Flavor Treat. Since then, one-of-a-kind flavors
such as Peanut Butter Butterfinger, Monster Cookie with
;M&M's Candies, Brownie Batter and Strawberry CheeseQuake
'have become Blizzards of the Month, a promotion that began in
2003.
Many flavors also can be made into Blizzard cakes, perfect
:for your Thanksgiving celebration or other holiday occasion.
Like the classic Dairy Queen ChillabrationTM cakes, Blizzard
cakes can be customized with different flavors by ordering in
:advance. The average price of a Blizzard cake is $19.99 for the
-eight-inch and $22.99 for the 12-inch.
The incredible popularity of the Blizzard brand led Dairy
:Queen to initiate the Blizzard Fan Club last year, which recently
,reached 1 million members (log on to www.blizzardfanclub.com).
For more information, visit www.dairyqueen.com.

Many people attended the Yard Sale making it a huge success
On Saturday, October 28, 2006, the Ladies of Joppa Lodge
held a yard sale to benefit the Masonic Home in St. Petersburg,
Florida. Anything and everything was available for sale; and
thanks to the citizens of Dixie County it was a huge success. We
would like to thank everyone who came by and purchased; and to
thank everyone who donated items.
We would especially like to thank the following: Tommy.
Greene Publishing, who donated tickets to Wild Adventures;'
Roger & Connie Pittman; Herman & Carol Goble; Cheryl
Osborne; Judy & John Swiston; John & Charlotte Osteen; Harvey
& Joan Resnick; Janice, Kris & Mrs. King; Guye & Vickie
Daniels; Judd & Anita Daniels; Bill & Martha Bucholtz; Mr. &
Mrs. Wm. Bucholtz, Sr.; Eric & Lee Daniels; and especially Gail
Carrier of Gail's Cafe for providing the space to hold the yard sale.

It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain
of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time.
-Winston Churchill

Old Town Elementary


AES Star Students
Each nine-six-weeks Anderson Elementary School will be featuring their Star Students. These
students are eligible to win their choice of watches if they have had no absentees, no discipline
referrals and are on the A or A-B honor roll.
Names of all the students who qualified this past nine weeks were put in a drawing with one
chosen from each grade. We are excited to report that we had an estimated 30 students qualify in
each grade!
The Star Student program has been designed to give students incentive to do their best. Teachers
and staff at AES are proud of these students and feel they are setting an excellent example for their
peers.
One of the areas in which AES is stressing this year is truancy. It is important that students be in
school each day. After all they can't learn if they aren't there.
Congratulations to all of AES's "STARS"....

This week's Dixie Sighting takes us up into the sky and giving us a "birds-eye" view of some of
Dixie's countryside. The top picture is an ariel view of Horseshoe Beach, surrounded by a maze of
canals and marshlands. Isn't it breathtaking! The bottom picture gives us an overhead view of Cross
City. Can you find the Advocate?
These photos were made possible by Andy Aviation and pilot Bill Palmer. Bill was brave enough.
to take this writer up in their Cessna 172 plane, even though I was quite nervous. Taking off miy
heart jumped a few beats, but once we were up in the air all thoughts left my mind except for the
beauty that I was able to see from below the clouds. It was amazing, and I couldn't stop taking,
pictures!
I must give Bill all the credit; his flying skills made the trip smooth and a true joy. Of course Bill
is no stranger to ariel photo shoots and sightseeing tours. For $75.00 an hour Andy Aviation will be
glad to take you on a trip that you will never forget. They also give flight instruction.

the majority of my staff did not follow those instructions. I have four (possibly five) staff members
who work against me every day of the week. I treat them as I do everyone else... with kindness. I
always have.
I inherited many problems upon taking office. These problems have been present for years. There
was no infrastructure in the Clerk's office. There was no discipline. The office "ran itself'. Some
employees were never on time. I am told there were shortages in the cash drawer that were not
reported to the elder Clerk for many months. My Chief Deputy and I were told several times that
the cash drawer would not balance and it was not supposed to. My Chief Deputy and I had a
problerr, with that I lPn;e- lhat could not be accurate, so I called Jim Cleek at FACC (Florida

This Clerk will not make you a bunch of promises that I may or may not be able to keep. I will '
promise you this; you will be treated with kindness, respect and compassion when you come to the
Clerk's office. I will also promise you that we will conduct your business for you as quickly as
humanly possible. My staff wears names tags. If anyone is not treated with respect, kindness and
compassion, I need to know as soon as possible and I will deal with it accordingly.
The Dixie County Board of County Commissioners has given the Clerk's office their old offices and
meeting room. I wish to personally thank the BOCC for their generosity. The renovations are
moving much more slowly than any of us in the Clerk's office anticipated. However, hopefully in the
next few weeks, the renovations will be complete so that we will be better able to serve you.
On a more personal note, my husband, Sonny, and our two dogs, Patches and Bullet live between
Cross City and Horseshoe Beach. We love living in Dixie County. Some of our children live in the
area and some live in North Carolina. We have 6 children between us. We have 6 grandchildren

America. I have taught Sunday School, as has Sonny. I played piano in church for many years. I
am running on my Integrity, Leadership and Compassion. I was born in Mulberry, Florida,
graduated in 1962 from Wildwood High School. I went into the medical field and worked with
hundreds of M.D.'s and Radiologists over the past 40 years. I am proud to be your Clerk and I love
this job. I personally thank Gov. Bush for putting his trust in me.

Bears Outgunned By Cowboys


In District Game
By John Kelley
The Bears lost to the Madison Cowboys in
by far the toughest game they played all season.
The Bears, although well prepared, were
dominated by the weather and an aggressive
Madison team. The final score for the game was
Madison 46 the Bears 0. The weather conditions
played a significant part of the game. The rain
and high winds started with the kick off and
worsened until, by half time the field was
completely covered in water. It appeared that
the ball and the field were both hard to stay a
hold of, the footing was treacherous and the ball
was slippery.
The Bears started off badly with a fumble
on the first play with the Cowboys picking it up
at the Bear 24 yard line. The Cowboys turned
the recovery into a score four plays later. The
Madison team held the pressure on the Bears
forcing a punt on the next Dixie possession.
They turned that into a score five plays later and
the Bears were behind 14 points within the first
five minutes of play. By this time, the rain and
wind conditions were terrible, Kameron Keen
punted the ball and the wind almost took it back
to the point he punted from, giving the
Cowboys the field position to enable them to
score again. The score was now 21-0.
On the next DC possession the Cowboys
picked up a fumble from Keen and proceed to
score yet again.


The first quarter ended miserably for the
Bears as the score stood at 28-0.
The Bears managed to hold Madison
scoreless during much of the second quarter
until the Cowboys recover another fumble and
score with about 24 seconds to play before the
half. This left the Bears stunned 34-0 and the
rain continued to fall.
The second half proved to be just as
frustrating for the coaches and players as the
Cowboys continued to dominate the Bears. The
coaches opted for a running clock by the fourth
quarter but by the end of the game the Cowboys
had posted 46 unanswered points. It was
certainly a tough break for Dixie County, but
due to the conditions and the strength of the
Madison team the Bears proved that they were
every bit as tough as they could be.
Next week the Bears take on the PK Young
Blue Waves in Gainesville. I hope the Blue
Waves are prepared I know that the Bears are
looking to make good after the loss to Madison.
GO BIG RED!
The Bears, because they are district
runners-up, will travel to Pensacola on
November 10 to play Pensacola Catholic in the
first round of the Region play-offs. If the Bears
win that game and Madison County beats
Marianna then the Bears and the Cowboys
will meet once again on November 17.

Blythe Danner Speaks Out About Early Detection
And Screening For Head And Neck Cancer


(NAPS)-Head and neck
cancer affects approximately
40,000 Americans each year,
and more than half of these
patients are diagnosed in the
advanced stages of the dis-
ease, when survival rates are
much lower. Head and neck
cancer is expected to be
responsible for more than
11,000 deaths this year alone.
Although more individuals
are diagnosed with this type
of cancer than leukemia, pan-
creatic or ovarian cancer, few
are even aware of this disease.
Additionally, many Americans
are not familiar with the signs
and symptoms or mistake


them for something else, which
may lead to delayed treatment
and more advanced disease.
That is why Emmy-win-
ning actress Blythe Danner
is teaming up with the Oral
Cancer Foundation with sup-
port from Bristol-Myers
Squibb and ImClone Systems
Incorporated to speak out on
behalf of patients and fami-
lies affected by head and neck
cancer and to encourage
those at risk to be screened.
In 2002, Blythe lost her
husband, director Bruce
Paltrow, to oral cancer, so she
knows firsthand how this dis-
ease affects the individual

Bruce's voice became increas-

we spoke to a doctor, his can-

Blythe Danner. "By telling

those at risk by encouraging
early detection and screen-

speaking out about head
and neck cancer.

head and neck cancer:
Unhealed sore or lump
in the head and neck region
Sore throat or lingering
pain in the mouth
Trouble or pain when
swallowing
Change in voice quality
(hoarseness)
Ear pain
Sinuses that are blocked
and do not clear.

Adults over the age of 50,
especially men, and people
who use tobacco or drink
excessively are at high risk
for developing head and neck
cancer; however, younger peo-
ple and those with no other
risk factors are increasingly
being diagnosed. Other risk
factors associated with head
and neck cancer include over-
exposure to the sun, long-
term irritation caused by
dentures, poor nutrition,
exposure to asbestos or wood
dust, and certain viruses.

If you think you or a loved
one may be at risk for head

sional about a screening-it

Boo! A Halloween Kind Of Game
JACKSONVILLE -Halloween came early Saturday on


the eve of Daylight Savings time which set the
clocks back one hour.
The Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs
came disguised as a football team in a game that
may have set offensive football back for a full
generation. And they were both plenty ugly.
How do you like these combined stats?
Sixteen penalties, six fumbles, three
interceptions and eight dropped passes.
This may not be the "World Largest Outdoor


Cocktail Party" anymore, but those kinds of
numbers will drive coaches to drink.
It's not easy to give back a 21-0 lead, however the
heavily favored Gators nearly managed to do that before
holding on for a 21-14 victory that put them in the driver's
seat for SEC East supremacy.
But for a face-mask penalty on Georgia's Quentin
Moses on Florida ball-carrier Andre "Bubba"Caldwell, they
might still be playing. Caldwell had come up short of the
first down with just over two minutes to play in an All-Tel
Stadium full of 84,572 fans, but the inadvertent brushing of
his face mask resulted in a five-yard penalty that allowed
the Gators to kill the clock.
Even then, it took tailback DeShawn Wynn begging for
some carries after not touching the ball in the first half and
then sealing the deal by making crucial clock-eating
yardage. He told his coach he wanted the ball. "(No.) 21
wants the ball," Meyer said over the phones to his offensive
staff.
Wynn wanted the ball and got it five times in the final
four minutes, churning away for 36 yards.
For reasons nobody can seem to figure out, the Gator
offense took a siesta in the second half. The winning
margin was provided by the UF defense when defensive
end Ray McDonald picked up a fumble by Kregg Lumpkin
and scored. Then it was turn out the lights time for Urban's
boys, who watched Georgia fight back before frittering
away a chance to tie when quarterback Matt Stafford was
intercepted by Gator cornerback Reggie Lewis.
"Thank God for a great defense," said a disappointed
Urban Meyer, who acknowledged that the play calling and
execution has been worsening since the win over LSU on
Oct. 7. "In six years I've never had problems with an
offense like this. There's a lot of work to be done and
we've got to get to work on it right away."
You know it had to be pretty grim when a coach of a
Top Ten ranked team who just posted his seventh win over
the season that put him back in the SEC race and maybe the
national championship run has to stand there an almost
apologize.
If they're looking for the name of the Meyer offense
these days, maybe "Helter Skelter" might fit, because there
appears to be no design, no rhythm and no flow to the way
the Gators attack in the second half. I'm beginning to
wonder if Meyer and offensive coordinator Dan Mullen
aren't just pulling plays out of a hat.


On Saturday, Florida came up of the chute with an 11-
play opening drive for a touchdown scored by Caldwell on
an eight-yard reverse and looked to be on the way to a rout
early in the second as quarterback Chris Leak hit Andre
over the middle for a 40-yard score. Hey, this looked easier
than finding peaches and pecans for sale
..... on a Georgia roadside. Instead, the rest of
*" ir it nearly Meyer sick to his stomach. Of
Florida's 319 yards of offense, only 113
4, came in the final two quarters.
Suddenly, at the end of his interview,
Meyer remembered he had WON the
game.
"We are officially playing for an SEC
East championship," he gleamed, meaning
wins over Vanderbilt and South Carolina
would take the Gators back to Atlanta for
the first time in quite a spell.
Ugly wins are acceptable this time of the year.
Quick Jump Starts
1. For a 5-foot-7 walk-on at the University of Florida
from Sanford, Fla., David Eckstein has done fairly well:
MVP of the recent World Series and owner of two World
Series rings (Angels 2002 and Cardinals in 2006).
2. Re: Charlie Weis's comment about being jumped by
Florida and one other team in the coaches' poll last week,
referring to the Gators in their bye week as "home eating
cheese burgers" the Saturday before -- it was tacos, Charlie.
3. OK, where's that smarty pants writer now who
predicted a Tigers "Sweep In Three" as sort of a
mathematical conundrum?
4. You're hearing more talk these days about the
Florida-Georgia game going back to a home-and-home, or
alternating neutral sites (Jacksonville-Atlanta), which
causes me to wonder if they just want to keep meddling
with this great rivalry until they ruin it.
5. Of course, if you've lost eight of the last nine and 15
of the last 17 as Georgia has, you'd be trying to change
countries if you could.
Short Stuff
The 01' Cocktail Party Ain't What She Used To Be:
According to a Florida Times-Union poll, only 43 percent
of Gator fans consider Georgia their chief rival, while 48
percent say it's Florida State. But 63 percent of the
Bulldogs fans say theirs' is the Gators 0 Not surprisingly,
Bill Donovan's defending national champions open the
season as No. 1 in the ESPN.USA Today Coaches'
Preseason Poll -who else? and North Carolina is No. 2 0
Meyer's overall record in six seasons at Bowling Green,
Utah and Florida after an open date is 55-12 (.818).

(NAPS)-Each new school
year can be a stressful time
for children, with new teach-
ers and classmates, new
rooms, new routines and more
schoolwork. It can be partic-
ularly unnerving and over-
whelming for children facing
major transitions such as
starting elementary school or
middle school. As a parent,
there are proactive steps you
can take to support your child.
Express interest and
enthusiasm about the start
of the school year. If you are
confident and excited, your
child will be, too.
Take a walk around the
school with your child and
locate his or her classrooms,
lunchroom, playground and
restrooms. This will help your
child to feel more comfortable
with his or her surroundings
and prevent feeling lost on the
first day.
Take time to listen and
discuss aspects of the new
school year that he or she is
worried about. Remember to
let your child know that it's
normal to feel nervous about
the start of school. For par-
ents of younger children, sug-
gest that your child take a fam-
ily photo or special object to
school to make his or her sur-
roundings more comfortable.
Spend time each day
talking to your child about
what happened in school.
Give your child positive feed-
back about his or her new
experiences.
Praise and encourage
your child to become involved
with school activities and try
new opportunities.
Attend school functions
and stay involved in your
child's education. Children
whose parents are more
involved with their education
have higher achievement, are
better adjusted and are less
likely to drop out of school.
Make a point to learn
not just about how your child
develops physically, but socially
and emotionally, as well. If you
are aware of what's typical
behavior and thoughts for your
child's stage in life, you will be
able to tell more readily when
things may not be right.

FWC Announces Red Drum Public Workshops


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) invites the
public to participate in any of nine upcoming
workshops regarding management of red drum
(redfish) in Florida.
The FWC is seeking comment on its
recent red drum stock assessment, which
,concluded that while the management goal of
:30 percent escapement is on target. However,
-increasing fishing effort could cause the
:escapement rate to decline below 30 percent by
:the next assessment in 2009. Escapement is
:the percentage of fish that avoid harvest by
fishers.
A red drum workgroup recently
established by the FWC has developed several
,management recommendations, including
narrowing the current 18-27 inches total length
,slot limit,- applying a one-month closure and
.increasing the management goal to 40 percent
,escapement. The FWC also is seeking
,comment from interested persons on those
recommendations.

'P


Twenty volunteers met on a crisp, cool, sunny, fall day to spruce up the Steinhatchee River and
clean the roads.


Over 100 bags of
debriswere gathered including
two batteries that were found
in the river by Mary and Julius
Cooey. Batteries are highly
toxic and should never be
disposed of improperly. This
was the worst offense we
found.
Patricia Hurd and Anna
McDow with three
Steinhatchee students, Rodrigo
and Jennifer Martinez and
Kaley Johns, cleaned the
bridge, the bridge road and the
area on the Jena side with all
the signs. This is one of the
worst areas and they did a
great job. ,
Rhoda Moehring and Diana
Badar (a winter boating
visitor) cleaned the river and
got over twelve bags plus loose
debris. Rhoda had on her
Steinhatchee Reeboks, of
course! Rhoda also baked
delicious brownies for the
volunteers.
The AARP area of Hwy 51
from Tri-County Electric to the
Palm Grove property was
attacked by Sue and Bud
Polhemus. It required a lot of
backbreaking work for just two
people. Bob and Gail Bartlett
and Judy Ganteinbein cleaned
the entire Steinhatchee Garden
Club area from the cemetery to
Cooey's Island. A gigantic
piece of discarded tin was
found in addition to some huge
signs. They worked very hard
to get the two miles (both
sides) cleaned.

were just walking past the
Community Center and got
roped into picking up trash
from the Community Center to
Roy's Restaurant. Thanks and
thanks again for the
unexpected "yes".
The outrageously filthy
area between Roy's and the
dump was picked up by Van
and Kathy Jester. This area is
another black pit of
littering...some from flying
debris off pickups heading to
the dump and some from
litterbugs leaving town. Please
stop littering!
Al Williams used his
pickup to gather the bags and
bring them back to the
Community Center. Al was


our oldest volunteer at over 80
- but who's counting? Thank
you, Al. Buster, Josh and Dick
were looking down from above
and nodding approval.
Ann Boy opened the
Community Center and
oversaw the lunch. Ann made
arrangements for pizza and
water that was generously
donated for the community
effort by Hungry Howies.
Everyone that came out
received a tee shirt donated by
the Steinhatchee Community

great time doing something
worthwhile on a gorgeous
morning. Hope to see YOU
next year.

Discoveries At The Refuge
Bronson Elementary School fifth graders had no idea how
much fun they were going to have at the Lower Suwannee
National Wildlife Refuge, even half way into the field trip.
Students had been studying the scientific method, but never
expected to talk about it as it related to the first people living on
the Gulf thousands of years ago, nor were they expecting the mud.
Most had never seen an ancient Indian mound, so the
excitement of seeing the millions and millions of mollusk shells
exposed on the mound's sunniest side spurred many questions
about the kids who had lived there so many thousands of years
ago. They learned that the biodiversity of the salt marsh drew
humans as well as birds, deer, fish, manatee, sea turtles, fox, and
the miniscule critters that live in the mud.
EIl16. -.-:,% NVBajuAE E. E- X "V.f1acw.f


When the Ranger said their next assignment was to get into
the water and dig in the mud, screams of glee rose from the forty
fifth-graders. They were given shovels, sieves, and nets of all sizes.
Each team was to discover what marine animals live in the mud of
the salt marsh and report their findings. Afterward, they observed
models of waterbirds' bills and studied how each feeds on the tasty
critters the students found in the muddy marsh.
As the ranger concluded the day's lesson in the glorious
outdoors, a bald eagle, the mascot of their school soared across the
sky. Cheers from the fifth grade Bronson Eagles could be heard
for miles around.
If you want to get your kids involved in the outdoor classroom
of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys National Wildlife
Refuges, call 3352/493-0238 extension 223.


A Hero Lost Her Battle On
October 11, 2006
Cocoa was a 5-year-old Boxer. Owned by Charlie Wise of Old
Town, FL. We called her a Hero when Cocoa got in front of a 6-
foot Diamond back Rattlesnake a year ago. Charlie was walking to
his car when Cocoa was persistent in trying to stop him. As Charlie
told her to get out of the way, she wouldn't quit.
As Charlie took another step Cocoa lunged for the snake just
another step in front of him, and the snake bit Cocoa. She was
rushed to the hospital and 5 days later came home leaving a
sizeable bill at the vets. Walking next to Charlie again, she was
weak but home and recovered after a time.
Cocoa and Charlie went everywhere together. You didn't see
Charlie without Cocoa. She would stay in the truck when he would
go in the store. So he would hurry, do his shopping and Cocoa
would wag her short, stubby tail when he came out because she
knew he would always have a treat for her.
To make a long story a little shorter, she did it again. Charlie
was walking near his home on Saturday afternoon and here came
this friend to warn Charlie, and again took the bite from a 5-foot
Diamondback to protect her friend. The snake bit Cocoa in the face
and again in the back leg. She then returned to Charlie to let him
know the snake was gone before she fell. But this time it was to
much. Cocoa lost the fight 5 days later.
People don't know what a true friend really is until they are
willing to take a bite to protect them. Cocoa not only did it once,
but twice. She will be truly missed by not only Charlie but anyone
who knew her.
She was just a dog? Then why does her death hurt so much!
We love you Cocoa!

9, 2006 from 11:00 am 2:00 pm.
The intent of the Chamber is to insure that each child from 3-12
years old receives a gift in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
To make this event successful, we need your help. We need
donations of items or money to buy gifts for the children.
The celebration begins with a children's parade. The children
decorate their bicycles or wagons for the parade and the winner of
each category receives a cash prize. The parade will begin at 11:00
and end at the park where there will be fire truck rides, food, fun,
music, and gifts for the children.
The Chamber made some changes last year in the hopes that no
child would be left out. Instead of drawing names for large prizes,
each child up to 12 years old was given a customized backpack of
presents. We are planning to give out 500 Green Nike Style
Drawstring Backpack bags to the children of our community, with
each bag containing the same items. The cost of the backpack
alone is $2.45. We would like to be able to fill it with various
things suitable for boys and girls. We want each bag to be identical
in content, and expect the total cost of each bag to be about $15.00.
SThere are several sponsorships available which will allow you
to put your name, church name or business logo on the gift items
or you may have your own ideas.
These are some of the ideas for the backpack bags:
Frisbees, Bubble blower writing pens, Flashlights, Christmas
Stockings, Christmas Bear, Activity Books, Crayons, Pencils,
Balls, Stickers, Children's Story Books, Bibles, Personal Care
Items (Toothbrush, Comb, Etc.), Tambourines, & Maracas.
: Please help in our celebration of Christmas for the children of
Dixie County. Take this opportunity to give a little help insure that
no child is left out during this most blessed of seasons and send in
your donation by December 1t. If you would like to volunteer to
help or participate in the parade please call 352-498-5454.

Knee Problems
(NAPSi-People of all ages
can experience knee problems.
Some of the most common
knee problems result from:
Osteoarthritis of the
knee, the gradual wearing
away of cartilage and changes
in the nearby bone, can be
caused by injury, obesity and
aging.
Injuries to the menisci
(pads of connective tissue on
the inner and outer sides of
each knee) are caused by the
force of rotation while bear-
ing weight.

r
-.


I' I .



Injuries to the collateral
and cruciate ligaments (tough
tissue that connects the femur
and tibia) are caused by twist-
ing or direct impact.
Treatments for knee prob-
lems vary depending on the
type of problem and severity.
The National Institute of
Arthritis and Musculoskeletal
and Skin Diseases (NIAMS)
funds research to better
understand and treat knee
problems. The booklet,
"Questions and Answers
About Knee Problems," offers
information and treatment
tips. For a free copy, call (877)
22-NIAMS or order online at
www.niams.nih.gov.


(NAPS)-A new and
improved No Sugar Added
Chocolate Powder from
Nestl6 Nesquik has a deli-
cious chocolate taste kids
love. It also has only 35 calo-
ries per serving of powder,
which is 55 percent less than
other flavored powder and
syrup brands, and it's spe-
cially fortified with 33 per-
cent more calcium than milk
alone, which helps kids build
strong bones.

Springhouse Quilter's News


springnouse quilters have been learning many ditterent
quilting techniques during 2006. One technique is the use of
fabric to make or paint a picture which most likely will become, a
shall have, wall hanging. In early American times, quilters made
their quilts for a specific reason, for use on bedding to stay warm
during cold weather. Today, quilters enjoy many forms of
quilting that would surprise our ancestors. These quilts are made
as a form of art work and are not intended to be used except for
display or decorations.
During 2006, a workshop was held to teach the guild
members how to paint a picture using fabric. Using fabric as a
median to create a picture is truly an art because the fabric must
be cut into small pieces and then assembled into a picture. The
placement and color of the fabric will determine the success of
the project. The pieces of cut fabric are assembled to create a
work of art that can become a treasure for the family.
Springhouse quilters will be enjoying a Christmas mini-
show during November. The members have all been busy
completing their 2006 Christmas quilts, which will be shown in
November during the workshop meeting.
Springhouse has a total membership of over 90 members.
These members will be soon enjoying the fall holidays. This is a
special time for friends and family. It is amazing how quickly
2006 has gone. Since time seems to be so short between
meetings, members stay very busy finishing their projects for the
monthly meeting each month.
For more information about Springhouse Quilters, please
call Anna Gilliam, 463 7922 or.

Methodist Church In Chiefland
Echoes will appear in live concert at the First United

For over 45, The Dixie Echoes have been delivering the good
news of the Gospel through their spiritually uplifting musical

Now introducing Mr. & Mrs. Johnson, October 28, 2006
New Prospect Baptist News
According to reports, a good time was had by all who attended
our annual Fall Festival Saturday evening at the Brannin Camp.
We really appreciate the time and hard work of Bro. Robert, Sis.
Pam, and all those who helped in organizing and setting everything
up for this enjoyable occasion of fun, fellowship, and good food.
On Sunday, it was a pleasure to be in God's house once again,
praising His name in song and hearing His wonderful Word
proclaimed. Our choir and Bro. Billy were "on their toes", each
doing a fine job in their respective area of the services.
As November bears down on us, we're really looking forward
to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season, a special time
in which we take pleasure in expressing our thanks to God for all
His blessings, and celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It
seems as if there is just "something in the air" during this time of
the year!
As always, keep your prayer-life active on the behalf of all
those on the various church prayer lists, our people in the
military, our President in his daunting job, and all the other leaders
of our nation, state, aid local areas. Remember, you're always
welcome to visit, fellowship with us, and become a part of us at
New Prospect. Have a good week, and may God shed His
blessings upon you.
LCCC Change in the Nursing
Admission Criteria
There is something new for students interested in one of the
nursing programs offered through Lake City Community College
(LCCC); no more waiting for individual advising appointments!
Now you can come to one of the monthly group advising sessions
held for those seeking admission to one of the following programs:
practical nursing (PN), bridge for licensed practical nurse (LPN)
seeking to become a registered nurse (RN) or the generic registered
nursing (RN). As director of nursing programs, I am pleased to
announce the nursing department's newest service for students
interested in either the associate in science degree in nursing
(ASDN) or the certificate in practical nursing (PN).
The ASDN program leads to becoming a registered nurse (RN).
You are required to attend one of the groups advising sessions
prior to applying for either the ASDN generic or the LPN to RN
Bridge tracks. The ASDN programs include the generic student
(someone who is a first-time student in any nursing program) and
the LPN to RN Bridge tracks.
Who should attend? Anyone interested in one of the nursing
programs, but especially any one who plans to seek admission to
one of the nursing programs within the next one to two years.
What will you learn? You will receive information regarding
admission testing, general education course requirements, work or
volunteer experience and other special admission requirements of
the program. You will receive information related to the question
"what happens after I am admitted to a nursing program?" You'll
learn how much time you will spend in the classroom, nursing
skills and simulator labs, and hospital sites. You will learn how
much study time is needed and how many hours per week you
should work while in the program. There will be helpful hints to
get you started in the program and become a successful nursing
student at LCCC.
The PN program is a one-year certificate program which trains
you to care for patients and administer medications and treatments.
There will be assistance for those who are interested in becoming a
licensed practical nurse (LPN) at the sessions. Special emphasis
will be placed on admission to the program, personal workloads
and responsibilities. There will be information on practical nursing
courses and college credit courses you may take prior to
acceptance into the program. College Placement Test (CPT)
standards must be met before you can enroll in a college credit
course. Call the LCCC College-wide Learning Lab for more details
at 754-4305. Attendance at a group advising session is not required
for admission to the PN program. However, I encourage students
to attend one of the group advising sessions.
The ASDN program leads to becoming a registered nurse (RN).
You are required to attend one of the group advising sessions prior
to applying for either the ASDN generic or the LPN to RN Bridge
tracks. The ASDN programs include the generic student (someone
who is a first-time student in any nursing program) and the LPN to
RN Bridge tracks.
The nursing department offers three tracks within the ASDN
- program. The traditional full-time generic track takes two years
: and a summer session. This track is for students who do not have a
background as a LPN. The other two tracks are for the LPN who
wants to "bridge" into the ASDN to become an RN.
There are two bridge options available at LCCC. The first is the
traditional or full-time bridge track. Upon acceptance into this
program you are awarded 10 credits for experiential prior learning
and related work experience. The full-time bridge track admits the
student into the program with the generic nursing students,
beginning in their second semester. There is a six-week break in
the summer and the course takes 14 months to complete. Option
two is the fast-track or part-time program. You can complete this
course in a little over a year. This is a weekend/evening track. You
attend two. evenings per week and have one 12 hour day of clinical
(hospital) experience each week. This track also awards 10 hours
of experiential credits.
The next group advising session is scheduled for Thursday,
November 2, 2006, 5-6 p.m. Group advising sessions for nursing
will be held in the Allied Health Building Lake City Medical
Center Auditorium (Bldg. 103-Rm. 106). The sessions will be held
once a month with the exceptions of July and December. The time
of each session will vary in order to meet the needs of those
interested in attending. The dates and times are available through
the nursing office (754-4404), advising department (754-4334) and
at the distance learning centers in Baker, Dixie, Gilchrist and
Union counties. Locally, the group advising sessions will appear
on Channel 8 in Columbia County on the Time Warner cable
system and on the college Web site www.lakecity.edu. Check your
local newspaper for dates and times.

We want to thank God for the glorious rain and cool weather
He's sent our way this past week. We had a large crowd even
though the time changed and the weather was crisp and cool.
Next week our schedule changes a little bit for the morning
service, so mark your calendars and don't miss any of it. Our
Sunday school will start at 9:30 am and close at 10:30 am. At
10:30 the Anchors Quartet will sing for our Homecoming service
ending at 11:30. At 11:30 Brother Tom Ward (one of our former
pastors) will bring the Homecoming message. At 12:00 Noon we
will all gather in the fellowship hall for a covered dish luncheon
and lots of good fellowship. Bring your favorite dish and let's all
enjoy a great time together. The Anchors Quartet will stay for a
while in the afternoon. Our revival starts Sunday night November
5t"' at 7:00 pm and will go through Thursday night the 9"' of
November. If you miss any of it, you will truly miss a blessing.
Our special music today was wonderful with Janet Osteen

What Women

Need To Know

About The Flu


(NAPS)-These days,
women are taking on more
responsibilities. With man-
aging work, family and social
activities, women are leading
an on-the-go lifestyle and sim-
ply cannot afford to get sick.
Contracting the flu could
make it virtually impossible
for them to get everything
accomplished, which, for many
women, isn't an option.
Considering that every year
an estimated 15 to 60 million
people in the United States
spend one to two weeks suf-
fering from the flu, women
should take action to help pro- -
tect themselves from the flu
and get vaccinated. Contrary
to popular belief, the flu is not
"just a bad cold" but a conta-
gious illness that strikes
quickly and can hit hard. Flu
symptoms, such as severe
fatigue, fever and body aches,
can make it difficult to get out
of bed.

Flu can infect anyone, any-
where at any time. In fact, it's
possible to infect others with
the flu one day before symp-
toms develop and up to five
days after becoming sick. This
means that people can infect
their friends, family and co-
workers with the flu before
realizing that they have it, or
pass it along to family while
they recover at home.
Everyone should take the
right steps to help protect
themselves from the flu and
help prevent its spread to fam-
ily and friends-the best way
to do this is to get vaccinated
against the flu.

The new 2006 guidelines
recommend flu vaccination for.
All children 6* to 59
months of age
Children aged 6
months* to 9 years who have
not been previously vacci-
nated should receive 2 doses
of vaccine
People 50 years and older
Women who will be preg-
nant during the flu season
Any person in close con-
tact with someone in a high-
risk group, including:
Health care workers
Household contacts and
out-of-home caregivers of
children 6* to 59 months
Close contacts of peo-
ple 50 years and older.
*Influenza vaccine is not
currently indicated for chil-
dren under 6 months of age.

How Can The Social Security Disability Specialst 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.
