Dixie County Commemorates Nation's Veterans


Dana Cannon Johnson .- E "--

Sworn In As New Clerk of Court -'



-, -.: -. ........... .
.,, :. .'.-:;' .' a "'


A large group of veterans were on hand for the celebration in honor of Veteran's Day last Saturday.


Dana Cannon Johnson takes the Oath of Office given by Judge Fred Koberlein as her co-workers look on.


By Briar Keathley
Not only is she the newly elected
Dixie County Clerk of Court, she is the first
ever elected female Clerk of Court in Dixie
County history. Dana Cannon Johnson was
sworn into office Tuesday at the Dixie
County Courthouse before a large crowd of
friends, family, fellow employees and
supporters.
"I feel privileged the county put trust
in me as the first woman elected," Johnson
said. "I think it's awesome."
Johnson won the Nov. 7 race against
Ellen C. Sands, who was serving as the
interim Clerk of Court for Joe Hubert Allen.
The newly acquired position "is like
coming back home for me," Johnson said,
who had to resign from her position as chief
deputy clerk in July to run for office. "I'm
glad to be back," she added
Having worked in the Dixie County
Clerk's Office for the past 17 years, the life-.
long resident of Dixie County said she is
looking forward to putting her experience to
work for the people.
"I've worked all aspects, from file
clerk to chief deputy clerk," she explained.
It was her experience with the courts
and the county commission, as well as her
love for the people of Dixie County that


influenced her decision to run for office,
Johnson said. Now that she is in office,
Johnson has big plans for making the next
two years a success.
"First, I want to reestablish the bond
between the board of county commissioners
office and the entire clerk's office as well as
other elected county officials," Johnson said.
She would then like to ensure that all
deputy clerks are cross-trained, and that the
new office space and the newly renovated old
office space are utilized effectively for office
staff and the public.
Johnson also wants to keep the
clerks office Web site, www.dixieclerk.com,
up to date with current courts information,
including historical information about Dixie
County on the site, and link the site to other
county offices.
Although it's been a hectic past few
months, Johnson said the office staff did a
marvelous job while she was gone and wants
to thank them all. She would also like to
thank the people of Dixie County for allowing
her the opportunity to serve them.
Johnson is married to Mickell
Johnson and has two step-daughters Micah,
14, and Mattison, 9.


By Briar Keathley
About 50 veterans,
along with friends and families
gathered Saturday in Cross
City to honor our nation's
veterans on Veterans Day.
"The nation that
forgets its defenders will itself
be forgotten," said Cross City
Mayor Kenneth 'Tank' Lee.
Observing Veterans Day is a
way to never forget, Lee
explained.
For the fifth
consecutive year, Lee and Joe
Sparacino organized the
Veterans Day celebration in
Cross City.
Shortly after
becoming mayor, Lee said he
realized there was no event
held in Cross City to honor
veterans on Veterans Day.
"Being a son of a vet I
wanted to do something," Lee
said. "I talked to Joe Sparacino
one day and he suggested (the
parade). We've been doing it
ever since."
This year, the
morning commemoration
included the parade led from
Evans Square to the
Emergency Operations Center
followed by a speech given by
retired U.S. Army Lt. Col.
David H. Elder Jr. Members of
See VETERANS, Pg. 5A

Four Roads In


County Approved


By FDOT For


Improvement
By Briar Keathley
The Florida Department of Transportation recently approved
four Dixie County roads for improvement projects.
"We've been mighty fortunate," said Dixie County
Chairman John L. Driggers. "These are major roads, vital to the
county."
Through one of the FDOT projects, the Small County
Outreach Program Project, Spillers Road from CR 351 to SR349
and Veterans Road from US 19 to Cross City Correctional
Institute will be widened and resurfaced.
Another project, the Small County Road Assistance
Program Project, will provide funding for the resurfacing of N.E.
512 Avenue from CR 351 North to SR 349 North, which links
Higginbotham's Store to McCrabb Baptist Church, and Gornto
Springs Road from SR 349 North to the end of the pavement.
The county will receive an estimated $2 million from
FDOT for the projects at the beginning of the 2007/2008 FDOT
:fiscal year in July 2007. At that time, the county will also
.receive a letter to proceed and can put the projects out for bids.
"We're just extremely thrilled," said County
CGoordinator Arthur Bellot, "especially for the repair and
widening of the prison road (Veterans Road)."
Bellot explained that the high volume of traffic on
Veterans Road creates a safety issue for jail employees and
:CIRCCI employees. Widening and resurfacing the road will
:make the road much safer, he said.
-- All of the roads are in definite need of improvement,
Triggers said, and were chosen for consideration by the board of
commissioners. The board then submitted the roads to FDOT for
evaluation.
FDOT ranks the roads based on rutting, cracks and the
overall "ride," according to Rural Area Transportation
Development Engineer Jordan Green.
"Roads with the worst conditions are selected," Green
said.
Dixie County's roads competed against roads in other
rural counties to receive the improvement funding.
"It's a very competitive process," Bellot said.

RIGHT TO THE POINT November 16, 2006


Election was no big surprise
On November 7th, the Democrats won control of the US I louse
of Representatives. A few days later, after recounts in close
elections had been completed, they achieved a "Jim Jeffords
majority" in the Senate.
As you may recall, Jeffords is the senator from Vermont who
switched to "Independent" shortly after being elected as a
Republican in 2000, then said he'd "caucus with the Democrats,"
taking a razor-thin edge away from the GOP for the next two years.
Such things happen in politics, but otherwise the Republicans have
sustained majorities in Congress since 1995.
Too bad they didn't do more than they did with this advantage,
especially with a Republican president at the helm for the past six
years.
Well, the party's over. Not that it's unusual for the president's
party to lose congressional seats in his sixth year in office. It almost
always happens, and it's usually a bigger "thumping" than George
W. Bush experienced last week. But it's the same "lame duck
syndrome" for a president and his agenda nonetheless.
Perhaps it's just as well. Republicans have squandered their
majority status by failing to do what responsible Americans were
led to believe they would do. Will the Democrats will get these
things done, or will they squander the opportunity as the
Republicans did?
Let's talk about illegal immigration. Both parties turned a blind
eye as it happened, and thus far the best effort to stem the tide has
been authorization of a partial fence on the Mexican border, which
won't solve the problem by itself even in the unlikely event it ever
gets built. Meanwhile, we, the taxpayers, are reluctantly supporting
this illegal invasion with our tax dollars and through the
depression of wages by cheap foreign labor. Is anyone willing to
deal with this matter seriously'?
And let us not forget the social issues. Gay marriage, for
example. How about partial-birth abortion'? We can live with these
travesties or we can do something about them. President Bush and
the Republican Senate were able to get some constitutional
conservatives on the federal bench--which is where such issues
ultimately get decided-but the Supreme Court is still a vote shy of
a conservative majority.
Then we have the ongoing controversy over gun control. A
combination of liberal legislators and liberal judges has succeeded
in compromising the Second Amendment in years past, and there
are plenty of gun control advocates to be found in the new majority,
not the least of whom is eagerly awaiting her anticipated
coronation as official leader of the 435 member House of
Representatives.
Nancy Pelosi, a left-wing radical from San Francisco, appears
to be "heiress apparent" to the office of House Speaker. But there
are moderates and conservatives among the newly-elected House
members, as well as those who were already there. The speaker is
chosen by a vote of the entire chamber; and granted, the nod
customarily goes to the choice of the majority party.
But what if a contingent of conservative and moderate Dem-
ocrats were to select someone more aligned with their own
preferences and the entire Republican minority sided with them to
form a majority that would keep Nancy Pelosi out of the driver's
seat? That would be the kind of constructive bi-partisanship that
rarely occurs in Congress, so don't look for it to happen;
It's logical that Democrats here in America are celebrating the
win, but it's a bit disturbing who else is. The European socialists,
of course, but I'd be more concerned about the Islamic radicals,
who seem to fancy this development as being favorable to their
agenda, given the ratings of Representative John Murtha and
others who favor a cut-and-run policy on the war.
Incidentally, Murtha has Pelosi's endorsement for House
Majority Leader. Looks like it could be a pretty interesting next
couple of years.


Letter To The

Editor
Dear Editor,
With the results ol our
:cent election, two of our
current County Cominissioners
ave been voted out of office.
his action was very
isturbing to me, especially
voting out Mr. John Driggers
Big John). He has always
workedd very hard for Dixie
county and always looked out
or the interest of our Citizens.
ir. Driggers has served this
countyy for several years and
as always been there for
anyone who needed him even
f they did not live in his
district .
Mr. Driggers will be
missed by many of us and
definitely left an awfully big
air of shoes to fill. Many
people felt that we needed a
hang, but one thing to
remember is that not all
changes arc for the better.
hopefully we will see Mr.
)riggers in 2010.
Respectfully yours,
Lindsy Polk
Old Town


Letter To The

Editor
Editor:
Left to the Point
Mr. Prater, as a Korean War
Veteran and a volunteer, I was
not offended by Sen. Kerry's
joke, because I knew it was
about Bush and not the troops.
The joke as written was If
you don't, you get (us) stuck in
Iraq". He left out the us".
Bush, Cheney, Limbaugh, and
other cronies also knew he was
not talking about the troops.
Kerry's record in the Senate
has always been in support of
the troops. Sen. Kerry is a
highly decorated Vietnam War
hero and was a volunteer.
Unlike Cheney who had
numerous deferments and
when asked why he didn't go
to Vietnam, he said he had
other priorities. When in the
Texas Air National Guard,
Bush was ask if he wanted go
to Vietnam, he checked the "
NO" Box. Mr. Limbaugh got
out of serving, because of a
cyst on his coccyx. The troops
in Iraq should be offended by
Bush for using them as
chessmen in the game of
politics. In an "Alice in
Wonderland world, real war
heroes have their patriotism
questioned by people who
never heard a shot fired in
anger.

ROADS
Cont. From Sec. 1 Pg. 1
In recent years,
Dixie County has received
between $11 and $12
million in FDOT road
improvement funding for
various roads throughout
the county, according to
Bellot. Improvements
made to 55A, CR 351, and
Willowhole Loop Road, to
name a few, have been
made possible through
FDOT funding.. The
ultimate result is better
roads and no burden
placed on taxpayers,
Bellot said.
"We've done a
lot of improving (to the
roads) in the past 12 years
since I've been a
commissioner," Driggers
said. "I hope the county
continues making
improvements."


History will be kihd to
me for I intend to write
it.

Letter To The

Editor
This letter is for the
individual who has taken upon
themselves to do one of the
most cowardly, disrespectful
things I can think of Ever
since my Toni Hatch was laid
to rest at the Old Town
Cemetery this past February,
someone has stolen different
items from her graveside
(angels, American flag and
lights). These items are very
meaningful to me and my
family as this is the only way
we have left to show Toni our
love.
So, I have an offer for you,
if there is anything at Toni's
graveside that you wish to
have, please let me know and I
will be glad to personally bring
them to you. Please call 498-
2856 home, 2562856 cell.
Thank You,

Election Day 2006 in Dixie County was a welcome event for
both political and scientific reasons. A much needed rain blessed
our soil as we were more than 12 inches below our normal
rainfall level. Welcome to November, an unpredictable month
when cool breezes begin to blow, shorter days signal nature to
get prepared for winter and the first frost, usually before the
month's end.
So what does this mean for "our walk on the garden?" If you
are looking to add some color to your landscape, your choices
are limited to the ole standby of winter pansies and flowering
kale. A new hot item in the nursery industry is the KNOCK-
OUT ROSE. This is a true rose bush that blooms all year round.
"You must be dreaming", you say? It's for real. November is
also a good time to transplant AND add new rose bushes for
your pleasure.
Most of our native trees (fruit trees included) are now
starting to sap down and the deciduous ones are starting to drop
leaves. Therefore, that makes this month the best time to plant
new trees and move others to the PERFECT spot in your yard.
Beware, for CITRUS trees are NOT included in the mix, their
best time for planting is reserved for Spring to be protected from
the winter frosts and low temperatures.
In summary, a few DO NOTS for November:
1. DO NOT feed shrubs and trees this month.
DO NOT prune shrubs and trees; this does not mean you
can't trim a branch or two that is dead or broken. Take note that
the new growth may get bitten by the frost later this winter.
3. DO NOT forget to provide water to drought sensitive and
new plants. IF the rains do not come.
DO'S FOR NOVEMBER
1. DO moisten the soil before you plant or transplant any
plants.
2. DO make. a 6-8" soil berm around your newly planted
trees and shrubs to guide the water to the root ball.
3. DO plant the new member of your garden so the soil level
in the pot is a the soil level of the ground.
4. DO place a 2-3" layer of mulch around the shrub/tree to"
help retain moisture and add some protection against freezing.
5. DO enjoy the cool days of November as you stroll through
your garden.
6. DO check with your local nursery for answers to your
specific questions.

Answer


Answer to question #219 is: a) you.
One of Isaac Newton's "laws" of motion
says "for every action there is an equal
and opposite reaction." Imagine that you
and a friend, who weigh exactly the same
(on Earth), were floating in space. You
push him, and each of you moves away
from the starting point at exactly the
same speed. But if he were an elephant,
with far more mass than you, you would
drift away much more quickly, because
the same force, applied to less mass,
creates more acceleration.

REMEMBER
Coat. From Page 10A

Many dances were held there.
as well as some of the Jr. Sr.
high school proms. There was
always a Jook Organ and for a
dime you could punch in any
song you wanted to hear. Who
can forget that popular "Hey
Good Lookin" or any of the
good old Jimmy Dorsey,
Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller
and many other war-time
orchestras and their beautiful
music that we learned to dance
to in the early 40's. Later on
the pavilion was turned into a
skating rink.
We girls had a good time
dancing and flirting with the
young airmen and pilots
stationed at the Cross City Air
Base. There was always a
group of them down at
Fanning Springs enjoying their
time off. Most of our local
boys had left school to join one
of the military branches before
graduating, or shortly after.
These were bittersweet
teenage years with many good
memories, as well as some sad
ones. Several local girls
married men stationed at the
Air Base and returned here to
live when the war was over.
We had a saying, "They got
sand in their shoes"!
My next article will tell of
a shocking and traumatic event
that happened in 1943 and that
I eye-witnessed! Many thanks
to Ranger Moody for helping
me recall and'write about these
true facts that I related to him
for his search and my articles.

Did You Know?j
(NAPS)-Sjogren's syn-
drome is a chronic autoim-
mune disease affecting up
to 4 million Americans. The
illness is caused by the
immune system attacking

FISH UT


Cont. From Pg. 1A


VETERANS Cont. From IA


the American Legion Post 383,
Disabled American Veterans
Post 63, the TriCounty Marine
Corp League, along with
various veterans walked and
rode in the parade.
Elder's speech is as
follows:
Good morning, ladies
and gentlemen, and veterans of
all services, past, present and
future.
First, I'd like to thank
all of you for taking time out
of your Saturday to join in
honoring veterans.
Then, I'd like you to
*think about all the wars and
'conflicts' our country has
been involved in, some even
before we were a country.
From fighting to carve a
country out of the wilderness,
through The Revolution, then
the instant replay, the war of
1812; then the Mexican War,
American Civil War, Spanish-
American War, World Wars I
and II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert
,Storm and its off-shoots,
Afghanistan and Iraq: No
generation of Americans has
gone without a war since the
birth of our county; yet we, the
American people, have shown
courage, dedication, and a
spirit that can't be suppressed;
a deep, true understanding of
the maxim that Freedom is
'not Free.
War is never popular.
Every war we've been
-involved in has had dissenters,
from draft riots, (mostly in the
North) in the War Between the
States, to draft riots during
Vietnam, to protests against
our involvement in Iraq. And
this right to protest is one of
the things we've fought for!
Freedom! Free Speech. Free
thought, Freedom to live and
raise our children to know and
do what's right, and to
recognize our responsibility to
defend this freedom, this
wonderful idea, with... "our
fortunes, our sacred honor, our
very lives..."
War shouldn't be
popular. It's a terrible thing.
We shouldn't have to ask our
young men and women to go
fight in a foreign land, where
the people can't even decide
how to run their own country,
and don't like us! Everyone,
most especially our soldiers,
would be happy to leave Iraq!
But what happens if
we do leave? We see the
pictures on television, and
that's all they are: pictures. It's
happening somewhere else, to
someone lese. And some
people act like if we stay out of
other countries' fights they'll
leave us alone. Can any
reasonable, conscious person
actually believe that? We've
already been attacked on our
own ground; remember
September 11? That was an
t invasion of our home! Why
were we attacked? Weren't we
being nice to the "Arab
world?" Face it: no matter
how nice we are the rest of
the world isn't!
The United States has
- always stood for freedom,
Justice and helping other
: countries in their struggle for
" freedom just because it's the
; right thing to do. I don't know
if we'll ever be without war. If
we look at history, we never
have been. And when it comes
Right down to it, the soldier has
Sno say in where, or when, or
who, or why he'll fight.
Maybe I've gotten a
little irritable as I've gotten
older, or maybe the
"Peacenicks" have gotten more
obnoxious, or maybe my
tolerance threshold for
stupidity has gotten to be less.
All I know is, when
SI'm out somewhere and some
: rock-kissing, tree-hugging
Liberal wimp gets up in my


face because I have a uniform
on and demands, "Why are
we fighting in Iraq?!" I just
smile and say "So we don't
have to fight in your living
room!"
Some of them even
come back with something
like, "I don't want my son to
die for nothing!" And I tell
them, "I don't even want any
of my sons to die for
Something."
But, I don't want to
have to live, and don't want


any of my sons or any citizen
of our country, to have to live
without the two most precious
things anyone can have:
Freedom and Honor.
To me, this is what
Veterans Day is: a celebration
of our country, of our heroes,
of all of you who served, who
put their lives on the line, and
some of our friends who gave
their lives, so that our families,
friends, every citizen-even
those who in every time period
protest "THE WAR," even
they have the freedom, the
right to think and act as their
conscience moves them
because of what the soldier-
Marine, Sailor, Airman, Coast
Guardsman-has done.
Veterans Day is a day
to remember the real heroes;
not the guy with the medals for
one burst of glory, but the
heroes among us, who come
back after doing their job as a
soldier, and raise a family, go
to work every day, and keep
our community and country
going, day after day, year after
year: the bus driver who does
what's "expected." People just
think he's "dependable" until
there's an emergency, and he
organizes rescues and save
lives, because he just happens
to have been a combat medic
in Vietnam; or the crossing
guard we see every day, who
volunteers to keep our little
children safe as they go to
school. Then when we talk to
him, and we find out he's a
veteran on the Army, Navy,
Marines and was a P.O.W. in
Germany in World War II.
And a hundred more. And they
could all paraphrase Paul: "I
have to run a good race, and
am satisfied, Now I pass it on
to you."
Heroes among us:
not HIStory, but OURstory,
the story of our country, a
little bit at a time. Want to
hear Ourstory? Ask a Vet!
Take the time to listen to
them, they took the time to
keep you free, didn't they?
I'd like to thank all
of you again for being here
today, and a special thanks
to the two veterans, who
really got this parade
started: Mayor Tank Lee
and Joe Sparacino. As them
for that story! It's a good
one!
Ever consider what dogs
must think of us? I mean,
here we come back from
a grocery store with the
most amazing haul-
chicken, pork, half a cow.
They must think we're
the greatest hunters on

These fishermen had a wonderful time catching fish at the Shamrock Vet Clinic.


It is better to fail in orig-

there everyone ran to get a cane pole, all acting like aci bunch of hooligans.
The boys who got a cane pole went straight to fishing and "Tye" from Saunders Collage was the first one
to catch a catfish. The fish was the second biggest out of them all. A lot ofthe boys did not get a cane pole so we
had to wait until Mr. Jef caught up with us. When he got there he was boinbarded with a bunch of boys who
wanted a pole, so we had to wait patiently and log out a rod and reel.
Once I got a rod and reel I went straight to fishing. I got a few bites, and then after a while, P. Hagar tried
to save the day by helping me catch a fish. 1But it was no use; we just could not catch anything. After a while,
Dakota from Merrill Collage caught the biggest fish. Merrill Cottage also won the grand prize of a $75 gift
card to Pizza Hut for catching the most fish.
Cody, from Merrill Cottage, tried catching catfish with tootsie rolls and he caught one too. Then it was
time for lunch. Before we ate we took a group picture, and then we said a prayer. Then we attacked the food
like hungry animals. Afier lunch Mr. Jeff gave out prizes, Merrill coming in first, Conn in second place winning
a $50 gift certificate to Dairy Queen, and finally Lewis Cottage in third place, winning $25 in movies from the
Movie Gallery. Then it was time to clean up and leave.
I really had a good time. (Reprint from issue #4, October 2006, Ranch Talk)

The Word

Made Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say we are looking
tat the beast like nature of man
beginning to prevail among God's
.people. From here we will see a
".beast with six wings wrapped
::about him. These wings are
working in the human race.
Jeremiah prophesies that Israel
would be scattered into all winds.
:(Jeremiah 49:32-36) Also read
:(Ezekiel 5:10 and Ezekiel 17:21)
'this shows us that there is power
.in these winds, both to destroy and
save.
s The 37th Chapter of Ezekiel
pand his prophesy to Israel. Ezekiel
.prophesized until the bones came
together, but they had no life in
them. Then Ezekiel was told to
,prophesy to the winds. And as he
'prophesied to the winds, breath
came into the dead bones. There
',was life in the winds and life came
.into the bones as he prophesied to
',,them. In these winds came either
"life or destruction.
I, the son of man, say finally,
,; he prophet Zechariah cries out
i''Ho, ho, come forth and flee from
the land of the north, saith the
'Lord: for I have spread you abroad
`as the four winds of the heaven,
'saith the Lord." (Zechariah 2:6).
The message that we are
proclaiming to God's people is the
Mark of the Beast, and the number
of his name. We have looked at
the figure six and also the figure
three. We have made the Mark of
the Beast clear and distinct, as we
searched the Holy Scriptures and
proved that this Mark got its start
'.all the way back in the Garden of
':Eden. We are tying together the
.Mark and the Number in this
message, so that there will be no
'doubt where this Mark comes
from. As we understand the
.,Number, the Mark will become
clearer to us.
I, the son of man, say as we
approach the Name of the Beast,
we must be thoroughly Christian-
minded, so as to hear and see what
'the spirit is saying to the church.
We must come to visions and
,relations of the Lord Jesus and his

coming. If you don't stay up with
me every week, you won't know
'what I am saying. Continued next
week.


New Prospect Baptist News
As always, it was a blessing as well as a privilege to be in
God's house Sunday. In honor of Veterans Day the day before,
Bro. Billy brought special recognition to all veterans present in
the sanctuary, locuLsing on the huge debt which we, as citizens,
owe to all those dedicated people for their willingness in
protecting our great nation. We also thank our choir for a job
well-done in handling the song service prior to Bro. Billy's
excellent delivery of God's message from 2nd Timothy 4:6-8.
Immediately after the services, we enjoyed a fine dinner with all
the trimmings in the church annex.
Don't forget the Birthday Cookout for Bro. Leamon
Downing on Saturday afternoon. Nov. 18th. Then, on Sunday
evening Nov. 19th, immediately after the .evening church
service, we will join Bro. Thomas and Sis. Betty Fowler in
celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary in the church annex.
We will not have our regular mid-week prayer service on
Wednesday, Nov. 22nd.
Our local prayer lists are still quite lengthy, so be in prayer
for all those in need, as well as our President and other leaders.
Pray also for the safety and well-being of our people in the
military, as the situation seems to be having difficulty in getting
better for them. Have a good week and remember, you're invited
to come and fellowship with us anytime at New Prospect. May
God bless and keep you.


Faith Baptist Church News
We thank God for His blessings. The cool, crisp weather was
great, our Sunday School attendance was up, and we had a good
crowd in church even though this was the Is" weekend of hunting
season, lots of folks are still out sick, some were out of town, but
with all that considered, we still had a lot of people in attendance
this morning. Bro. Jackie did his usual good job in the pulpit;
Debra Phillips did the special music and as always, did a great job
of it. It was just a wonderful day. The special music in the evening
service was instrumentals done by Buddy and Dot Britton and
Kacie Crenshaw. They did a splendid job too.
We've got a busy holiday season ahead, with Thanksgiving
supper at the church Thanksgiving evening, a Christmas program
coming up and practices to start soon and we're looking forward to
all of this. There's no better time than Thanksgiving to remember
all He's done for us and thank Him for it, and then Christmas to
remember His birth and celebrate it.
Remember this week to pray for the less fortunate, the sick, and
especially the lost. What a wonderful time this would be for some
lost souls to find Christ and accept Him as their Savior.
Come out Wednesday night for your mid-week fill-up and
again next Sunday for our regular services. Until then, we will be
praying for you and looking forward to seeing you in church.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"Wait till the water returns"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say all praise be to
our God, He hath thought thoughts which are far higher than man's, as it is
written, "My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My.
ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are
my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isaiah 55:8-9) What are His thoughts? He hath devised means whereby
the waters shall return again." Behold ye among the heathen and regard,
and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your day, which ye
will not believe though it be told you." (Habakkuk 1:5).
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, what God hath yet purposed to do. I,
the Day of the Lord, say consider the shameful state of this water, poured
out in purity on the mountain, but now down in the valley it ends in a
polluted swamp, unclean, undesirable, a vivid example of the downward
way. Then the rays of the sun begin to reach down and draw upward,
vaporizing that which had become so utterly polluted. Then with the
gentle moving of the wind these "vapors" are slowly returned back to the
mountain and distilled into drops of rain, pure water again.
I, the Day of the Lord, say all the filthy debris are left behind in the
valley, only the water is lifted up into the heavens, and return to its
beginning. Perhaps we can change this word "vaporize" to the word
spiritize, for that is what God is doing with men. He reaches down through'
the Son of His love, and draws us upward, into realms of the spirit. The'
works of flesh are left behind; the filth of the carnal mind is gradually
stripped off, while the upward pull continues to draw us into Him.
Corruption cannot inherit God's rare realm of incorruption, it is left
behind, that we might be swallowed up into that which is from above.
I, the Day of the Lord, say it is also noted that heat is used in this
vaporizing process, the sun's rays become very warm, though drawing the
moisture upward all the while. There is quite a fire involved as God purges
but though it all that which was so congealed begins to liquefy, becoming,
more fluid all the time, until finally it becomes a vapor.
I, the Day of the Lord, say perhaps our flesh has resisted the move, we
have found it going to mean separations and we tried to cling to some of
these natural things, but the Son of Love will continue to draw, until we'
release our grip on all the natural, and abandon ourselves to His upward-
pull.
I, the Day of the Lord, say don't ever look upon a stagnant pool, and
say, that is the end. Don't ever look upon a life that is polluted with sin,
and say, that is the end. When water is poured out on the ground, mixed
with the dirt, absorbed into the earth, don't say, that is the end. God hath
devised means and He can vaporize, lift the water up out of the earth and
receive it pure again.
I, the Day of the Lord, say until the end returns to the beginning, we
find the cycle is not complete. All that came forth out of Him shall return'
back into Him. He hath decreed it. What God works in us as individuals,
He also shall work in all the earth, reconciling the world unto Himself:'
God is going to shake both heaven and earth, until the elements shall be-'
loosened, dissolved, melt with fervent heat, not to destroy, but to restore. I,
the Day of the Lord, say the judgments of God shall rock our globe, blut-
the Son of Love shall draw all unto Himself.

In Loving Memory of J.D. Walker


J.D. Walker 11-17-65 08-24-96
It's been 10 years since I left ya'll. I want you all to know I still
love you! I can't speak to you in person, so I will speak to you thru
a poem. No, I didn't write it, but the one who did, knew my heart.
Please listen with your heart & mind.
Mom, Dad, please don't mourn for me, I'm still here, though$
you don't see. I'm right by your side each night and day, arid
within your heart I long to stay. My body is gone but I'm always
near, I'm everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I'll
never depart, as long as you keep me alive in your heart. I'll never
wander out of your sight; I'm the brightest star on a clear summer
night. I'll never be beyond your reach; I'm the warm moist sand
when you're at the beach. I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes
around, and the pure white snow that blankets the ground. I'm the
beautiful flower of which you're so fond, the clear, cool water in a
quiet pond. I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring, the
first warm raindrop that April will bring. I'm the first ray of light
when the sun starts to shine, and look, you'll see that the face il
the moon is mine. When you start thinking there's no one to love
you, you can talk to me through the Lord above you. I'll whispet
my answer through the leaves on the trees, and you'll feel my
presence in the soft summer breeze, I'm the hot salty tear that flow
when you weep, and the beautiful dreams that come while you
sleep. I'm the smile you see on a baby's face, just look at me,
Mom & Dad, I'm everyplace.
Tell my children, Dwight & Chelsea, my grandson little
Patrick, my sister Brandi, brother in law Ray, nephews, John,
Jacob and Logan I love them too.
And don't worry about me, I'm with God and I'm watching
over you!
I love and miss you son!
Daddy

How Can The Social Security Disability Specalist 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 anc 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.

A Postcard From The Past


Documentation can exist in different forms, such as old photographs, historic period maps,
archival texts, letters, newspaper and magazine articles, deeds and other legal documents and
postcards. The 1959 Fanning Springs postcard pictured in this week's edition features a scene of the
springs and the pavilion that included changing rooms and a roller skating rink, which was used
often as a dance hall.
Today that portion of the hillside that surrounds the beautiful, crystal clear springs are a
concession stand, restrooms/changing rooms, picnic area and volleyball court. Walkways have been
constructed along the perimeter of the springs; making it much easier to reach the water from the
steep banks.
Ranger Andrew Moody of the Florida State Division of Parks acquired the postcard for the Parks
historical files.
As mentioned in a previous Fanning Springs feature, "Were You There", Ranger Moody has
been doing research on the Park since 2003 for the Park's files, the Levy County Archives and the
Division of Historical Resources in Tallahassee.
Ranger Moody stated that some of these forms of old "Fannin Springs" history are still around in
private collections. If you think that you are able to help the Park in this research, please contact the
Fanning Springs State Park at 352-463-3420.


By Carolyn Jones
Much to my surprise a
couple of weeks ago, Fanning
Springs State Park Ranger
Andrew Moody contacted me
through the Dixie County
Advocate and asked if he could
interview me. This came about
because of my stories in the
"Do You Remember" column,
especially the ones where I
told of the old original wooden
bridge (constructed in the late
1920's) and the day that the
sides of the narrow bridge
were removed. This happened
during the day after we crossed
over on our way that morning
to shop in Gainesville, Florida.
I was about 5 years old at
the time, sitting in the. back
seat between my mother,
Madge, my grandmother
Moulton, and with my Aunt
Ruby Moulton, driving along
with a family friend Nell
Woods in the front passengers
seat. Believe me, it was pretty
scary when we arrived back at
the bridge late that afternoon
and realized that we would
have to go across it sides or
no sides to get back home to
Cross City! As her habit was,
my grandmother, not liking to
ride over narrow bridges, got
out of the car and walked
behind the car as my aunt
drove us over. The new steel
bridge, still under construction,
was not quite ready for cars
but opened soon after and was
dedicated later in 1934. I was
there that 4th of July and saw
the dedication and ribbon
cutting that took place in the
middle of the bridge. Canova
Anderson, the beautiful young
daughter of D.M. Anderson,
official surveyor employed by
Putnam Lumber Company in
.Shamrock, Florida, was the
one that cut the ribbon that hot
sunny day.
'. Ranger Moody was
extremely pleased to finally
find someone that had actually
.r'dden across the old bridge
aind also knew about the old
Fort Fanning Hotel and
Boarding House. It was located
on the spot that is now the Fort
Fanning Historical Park,
recently dedicated by Mayor
McQueen and others.
Fortunately I have a
snapshot of the Hotel and sign
out front, showing me at about
:age 5 and my little friend Ann
Woods, about age 4. We had
gone with my family to visit
mom's sister, Jewell and her
husband Toby Marshall. They
had recently married and lived
there at the Hotel Boarding
.House. He worked for the
Atlantic Coastline R.R.
Company at the Wilcox
station; often the night shift
and she stated that sometimes
she would stay with him. A
family by the name of Sunday
owned and operated the Hotel
Sas well as a store and service
station a few yards east,
approximately where the
present restaurant is today.
My friend Vessie Brown


Mills lived in the Wilcox area
between 1925 and 1941, when
she married Cecil Jones and
moved to Dixie County in
1941. Her father, V.M. Brown
lived and worked in the river
area, deadheading logs to be
floated down river, possibly
Fanning Springs area logging
operation. This information
verifies things that we had
heard about as having taken
place in the 1920's and even
earlier. More about this in
future columns and verification
from others as to what they
were told by ancestors.
Miss Vessie stated that her
father helped to disassemble
the old original wooden bridge
and also worked on
constructing the new steel
bridge to replace it. This new
bridge was to the north side of
the wooden bridge. The new
steel bridge was dedicated July
4th, 1934, as I said earlier. She
also remembered the Fred
Sunday family that I spoke of
as operating the old Hotel, at
the front of the north side of
the bridge, as well as a little
store and service station a few
yards further east along Hwy
19 directly across from the
entrance to the springs then, as
well as now.
Ranger Moody was also
extremely pleased that I was
able to verify some of the
events and rumors that he had
been hearing about for eleven
years he has worked on this
project. Such as, the old
original unpainted dressing
room building with knot holes
(where the boys sometimes
tried to look through) and the
very tall, monstrous wooden
slide on the opposite side of
the high dive over the boil.
This was the early 30's era.
Later the old wooden slide
was removed along with the
old dressing room building.
Ranger Moody has talked to
the man who removed the slide
and who is still using the
lumber that it was made of.
A new bathhouse and small
concession area was
constructed on, the same site
and new steps down to the
water edge, with a series of
docks or platforms used for
diving, and on over to the high
dive, (3 stories high) directly
over the deep, dark, very cold
boil.
I recall that only the older,
bravest and strong boys dived
from this height. I personally
never saw any girls do this. I
told in a previous story of the
springs that I saw Wylie
Newman, Juanita Newman
Begue's brother performing on
that high dive many times. Of
course, there were others, a
few then, and others in later
years.
Wylie was an outstanding
tall, well-built athlete helping
to win many trophies and
honors for the Dixie County
Bears back then. IHe and his
many future brother-in-laws,


the Begue boys were star
players, known all over the
state. A lot of you will
remember our beloved Coach
Spurgeon Cherry in the early
30's. Taylor County was our
archenemy in sports and often
claimed that the Begue boys
played past the age limit. They
didn't there were so many of
them coming along and they
started young. A young sister,
Shirley also played basketball.
More about school days later.
In connection to
ownership/leases of Fanning
Springs back in the late 20's,
30's and 40's, I knew or was
pretty sure that Mr. M.L.
Flcischel, owner of Putnam
Lumber Company in
Shamrock, Florida, also owned
or leased Fanning Springs-and
surrounding property.
My old school mate Carson
McLeod confirmed this when
we talked to Ranger Moody in
our interview on 11-08-06.
Carson stated that his father
"Mac" McLeod came to work
for Mr. Fleischel at Putnam
Lumber Company, moving
here in 1931 from Deland,
Florida. He was put to work
designing and in charge of
building the fire tower on the
Jena road. It was very tall, in
the likeness of a lighthouse and
had ladder steps to the top of
the observation point.
Carson also verified that it
was a 99 years lease of
Fanning. We also think it was
highly possible that Mr. "Mac"
was in charge of building that
old wooden slide at Fanning
Springs about 1931 or 32,
since it was in the same style
as the High dive tower and
Jena Fire Tower.
Speaking of the big slide at
the springs, it was about 3
stories high and had ladder like
steps on the side and back to
reach the top. The bottom of
the slide ended in the shallow
water and was kept wet by
constant use of older boys and
girls sliding down it. I recall
seeing my aunt Ruby and her
teenage girl friends in their
bathing suits, posed in a group
snapshot at the end of the slide
in the waters edge. This was in
1932, right after I started
school. Most of her friends in
the picture lived in Shamrock,
our neighboring mill town and
are no longer with us. My. aunt
is 94 years old, living in
Houston, Texas and we're
hoping that with her daughters
helping they can relocate this
old snapshot of the long gone
slide that I recall in her album.
The old original unpainted
dressing room building was
replaced in the mid 30's along
with the big slide which was
located over the huge rock
boulders rising up over the
embankment on the opposite
(north side) from the boil
which was on the south side of
the springs as you went down
the steps to reach the water
below. We girls never ventured
beyond thile edges of the water


and toward the Suwannee
River a few yards out, due to
grasses, bonnets, cypress trees,
and a fear of snakes and
alligators.
New dressing rooms were
built on the same site with an
attached small concession area
where you could buy bottled
soft drinks and pay an entrance
fee of a quarter, which entitled
you to a key to a dressing
room. You then proceeded to a
shallow deck overlooking the
springs below. The deck and
steps were built over more of
those huge rocks lining the
springs and when you reached
the bottom in shallow water,

you could go to your left,
facing south and on to a series
of docks where most people
dived from, or go over to the
High dive, 3 stories high
directly over the big boil. The
top was reached by climbing a
lot of ladder steps.
If you turned to your right,
north, at the bottom of the
entrance steps, you waded
shallow water where there
were many small springs in the
sandy edge and coming out of
the rocks surrounding the little
beach side of the springs. This
area was where children and
many adults played and swam.

Many times watermelons were
placed in this area among the
rocks and bubbling small
springs, to cool off far later
eating. The water was
extremely cold and you would
often see children turn blue
and have the shivers!
A short time later in the
30's a dance pavilion was built
alongside and to the north side
of the dressing rooms and
concession area. This sat above
where the big slide ran down
to the water below and was
after removal of the slide.

Bears Playoff Hopes



Dashed In Pensacola


By John Kelley
The Bears lost their playoff game to a
tough Pensacola Catholic team Friday night
in Pensacola. The final score was Crusaders
36 Bears 6. The Bears fell behind and were
unable to score until the fourth quarter when
quarterback Kameron Keen scored on a
quarterback sneak into the end zone.
While the Bears lost this game they still
had an impressive season, posting 8 wins and
only three losses. Coach Wilkerson had said
earlier in the season, that no one expected the
Bears to do as well as they were doing. He
said this after the Bears had won their eighth
game over rival Taylor County. The Bears
also gained a reputation this year as a come
from behind team, often scoring late in the
games they played to come back and win over
their opponents. During the first district game
played against the Fort White Indians, the
Bears pulled off an upset to beat the Indians
24 to 20. The Bears won this game during the
last 20 seconds of play. Oh my what a game!
Another memorable game was the epic battle
of the defenses against the Williston Red
Devils. The Bears took control of the game
during the last minutes and held on to win in
what was definitely one of the sweetest wins
in Boyette Stadium. These games will
certainly provide us fans with many
memories to hold us until next season.

The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin
Slicing Through The

Tension Bowl

GAINESVILLE The tension was so great for .
Steve Spurrier that he couldn't stay in one place :'
for more than a few seconds.
So South Carolina's coach paced the East
sidelines between the 40-yards lines like an
expectant father, twirling his visor in the air,
picking up a piece of trash paper and tossing it
aside, wiping his brow and even admonishing
the CBS cameraman not to expect any animated
reaction on his part.
Time was out and the minutes seemed months.
Everything came to a standstill at Florida Field, but the
collective hearts were still beating a million times a minute.
Across the way, Urban Meyer was almost gagged by the
suspense.
Having already used one time out to try and freeze the
kicker, Meyer eschewed the use of another because "I
couldn't stand it." In the single most dramatic moment of
his coaching career, Meyer was relying on a long shot a
blocked kick to bail his team out and maybe his season.
So he wanted to get on with it.
Aside from the hopes of a BCS title game riding on it,
.there was the matter of losing two years in a row to the guy
who used to have his job. As much as he admires Spurrier,
Urban Meyer hates losing to him more.
"It meant a lot more to me than I will probably admit to,"
Meyer said of his desire of beating Spurrier.
So this was it. One single play would determine if
Spurrier was going to come back home and spoil the party.
And one single moment would determine if the Gators
big dream as a national championship contender was going
forward or would come to a crashing halt.
As South Carolina's field goal kicker measured his steps,
awaiting the snap with eight seconds to play, the
Gamecocks needing a 48-yarder to win, The 01' Ball Coach
assumed his normal sideline pose, one foot over the other,
crossing his arms then uncrossing them and steeling
himself against any body language that might look negative
after the outcome.
"I told the cameraman not to bother shooting me,"
Spurrier would say later, "because my reaction was going

During every great season of football
someone has to eventually be bested. The
same goes for our beloved Dixie County
Bears. As for the three loses posted to the
Bears 2006 season, the toughest game by far
was losing to the Madison County Cowboys.
The game was played in hostile Cowboy
country, in a frog-strangling rainstorm. The
rain never stopped and neither did the Bears
determination, even though they were far
behind in the score. This proved that the
Dixie County team had the heart. The only
other loss that was not a district game was to
the Blue Waves of PK Yonge. The Bears won
the playing game on the field but the Wave
held the scoreboard. It was just one of those
games where all the luck landed on the other
team.

To the seniors who will graduate this
season, this was your moment to shine, hold
your heads high and remember all victories
against the cross county rivals...Chiefland,
Williston, Fort White, Newberry and Taylor.
To the underclassmen that will return to the
field, remember that you will lead the team to
victory next season and will have the chance
to avenge the losses to Madison, PK and
Pensacola. To the coaches, thanks for an
exciting season of Dixie County Bears
Football and till next year GO BIG RED!

to be the same either way."
As Florida's Jarvis Moss batted Ryan Succop's 48-yard
field goal attempt away, the ball fell to the ground, the
clock struck zero and the crowd exploded, Spurrier went
slightly limp, then calmly strode to the middle of the field
in a walk of resignation.
Florida 17, South Carolina 16.
The Gators kept frittering away chances
\^ on bobbles and missed field goals and
crucial penalties. The Gamecocks kept
coming.
"They kept making enough bad plays
that it looked like something good was
going to happen to us," said Spurrier, who
now drops to 5-5 for the season as Florida
moves up to 9-1, with a No. 4 BCS rating.
Lost in all the drama, perhaps, was the
fact that Florida was favored by two touchdowns and in
winning by only a single point, may drop slightly in the
BCS although they will move up in the polls after
Auburn's loss to Georgia.
Even Meyer is ready to take off the BCS wraps now.
"It's time to start talking about that to our players,"
Meyer said of the BCS race.
Meanwhile, Spurrier's trip to "The Swamp" wasn't all
for naught, because he was proud of the way his team
played and said quarterback Blake Mitchell redeemed
himself from purgatory by playing "his best game ever."
As he walked off the field, Spurrier gave a little thumbs
up signal to his fans. Even though he doesn't believe in
moral victories, he said many of players "played like
winners."
"Unf'orunaiel),' he said, "we were losers, because
football is a team game."
And as he left the interview room, Spurrier said to a
friend: "I think it might be the Year of the Gator."
For Meyer it was a notch in his gun barrel. He admitted
he was about as nervous as he's ever been as a coach.
Somebody wondered if it was his most tense ever.
Meyer said with a smile of admission: "I'd say it was
numero uno."
Maybe this game won't impress the pollsters, but for
sheer drama and excitement this was one of the best games
of the decade at Florida Field no matter the outcome.

Changes Proposed For Lower Econfina River


Small Game Hunting Area;
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation

The changes would allow deer and all other
legal game hunting during the archery and
muzzleloading gun seasons and turkey hunting
during the spring turkey season. The small
game season would continue as it has since the
area was established in September 2003.
The changes, if approved by FWC
commissioners, would take effect July 1, 2007.
The seasons on Lower Econfina River would
be:
Archery: Sept. 22 Oct. 7
Muzzleloading gun: Oct. 26 28

SHINE volunteer closest to you. You can receive assistance by phone.
The State of Florida has gone from 44 Stand Alone Drug Plans in 2006 to 57 plans for 2007. It is
very important that you consider all your options before choosing a Drug Plan for next year. All
plans have changed their pricing for the monthly premium, deductible (if any), and their drugs.
Anyone can go to the website www.medicare.gov and run the Plan Comparison tool to see which
plans may best suit your medication needs. If you are on a Part D Plan in 2006, go through the
'View Your Current Plan' tool in the box on the right side of the screen. This allows you to compare
your current plan in 2007 prices versus other plans in ascending order of your annual costs. If you
live in Florida only part of the year, be sure to look for a plan that is National.
There was only one gap coverage plan in 2006. This plan no longer will cover brand name drugs
in the gap in 2007. Please check with SHINE or www.medicare.gov for gap coverage plans.
You may have received a notice to re-apply or you can still apply for Extra Help through Social
Security. You may be eligible for Extra Help in paying for the plan premium, deductible and drugs
without penalty. You must meet the following criteria to qualify:
Single Income is $14,700 or less Assets total $11,500 or less
Couple Income is $19,800 or less Assets total $23,000 or less
Assets do not count your home or your vehicles. They do count your cash in the bank, CDs,
Stocks, Bonds, cash value on your life insurance or burial policies, and any additional property. Ask
us for details and an application.
The drug pricing for those also on Medicaid or receiving Extra Help is changing to:
If in 2006 you paid $1 generics/$3 brand names
S. '. In 2007 you will pay $1 generics/$3.10 brand names
If in 2006 you paid $2 generics/$5 brand names
In 2007 you will pay $2.15 generics/$5.35 brand names
In 2007, Medicare Part B Premium is going from $88.50/month to $93.50/month (except
incomes over $80,000/yr it will be higher). The deductible on Part B is going from $124.00 to
$131.00. Part A deductible is going from $952 to $992 for a hospital stay.

DOH Reminds Floridians Of The Importance Of


Staying Healthy This Flu
As our flu season continues, we have started
to see some localized flu activity in the State.
The Florida Department of Health (DOH)
reminds Floridians of the importance of
staying healthy this season by seeking a flu
shot and practicing healthy habits.
"With the holidays quickly approaching and
family gatherings being planned, it's important
that each of us takes precautions in order to
protect ourselves and our loved ones from
influenza," said Secretary of Health M. Rony
Francois, M.D., M.S.P.H., Ph.D. "Practicing
healthy habits and getting a flu shot play
important roles in staying healthy. Contact
your primary care physician today and discuss
getting a flu shot for yourself and your
family."
With vaccine continuing to make its way
into the State, it is imperative to remain aware
of flu vaccine opportunities throughout your
community, whether through your physician or
community clinics.
Annual influenza vaccination is
recommended for the following groups:
Persons at high risk for influenza-
related complications and severe disease,
including
children aged 6--59 months
pregnant women
persons 50 years or older
persons of any age with certain chronic
medical conditions


Season
Persons who live with, or care for,
persons at high risk.

Health-care workers
In addition to receiving a flu shot, DOH
recommends the following practices to help in
staying healthy this season:
Wash your hands often with soap and water
or an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Do not share eating utensils, drinking
glasses, towels or other personal items.
Stay home when you're sick and keep sick
children home.
Avoid close contact with people who are
sick, if possible.
Avoid crowds and areas where people
congregate and are likely to be sneezing and
coughing.

Make sure you're eating properly and
getting enough rest.
For information about how to schedule a flu
vaccination, contact your private physician or
personal health care provider. For more
information on Flu and Flu vaccination, visit
the DOH Web site at
http://www.doh.state.fl.us/disease_ctrl/immune
/flu/index.htm or www.cdc.gov/flu. To find a
flu vaccine clinic in your community, visit

American Legion Post 383 News
American Legion, Old Town, Post 383 participated in the
Veterans Day parade in Cross City last Saturday. Twenty members
participated, carrying not only the local post flags, but the flags
and standards of the 3rd District, both post and auxiliary of the
Department of Florida.
Dan Sellers, membership chairman, announced that renewal
membership is on schedule, that new members are being signed up,
as well as transfers from post 400. But, even being on schedule in
our renewals, we still have about 100 members that have not
renewed as of now.
2nd Vice-Commander, Bill O'Donnell, indicated that the plans
for New Years Eve are going forward, that the entertainment will
be provided by the Salt Water Cowboys, and that tickets will go on
sale shortly for $10 per person. The post will have its last Turkey
Shoot of the year this coming Saturday, November 18th, starting at
2:00 pm. On Sunday, November 19th, the post will have its annual
thanksgiving dinner for all members of the post. On November
29th, the post will have a birthday party for the 3rd District
Commander starting at 6:00 pm.
Post commander, Paul Sommer, was awarded a token of the
State Commander appreciation for obtaining a 65% renewal of
membership by November 1st. Paul indicated while he appreciated
the recognition, its important for the post to renew all its members.
"Our post has grown to over 350 members" "and its necessary to
make sure everyone renews for 2007". Sommer also wants to
remind all post members of the upcoming events at the post, and
encourage all to attend and that the next post membership meeting
was on November 15th, at 7:00 pm.

American Legion Airs
Last weekend was full of things to do. Friday was the Marine
Corps 231st Birthday celebration with President Bush attending the
dedication of the Marine Corps Museum at Quantico, Virginia.
Friday was, also Veterans Day (observed) with parades and
ceremonies around the area.. Trenton had a Veterans Day Parade
and afterward, the Gilchrist County Historical Society provided
hamburgers, hot dogs and music at the Trenton Depot. Several
places around the area provided free music concerts on Friday as
well, with high school bands providing the music. Saturday had
more celebrations for Veterans Day, with music and parades.
Trenton had Down Home Days and Post 91 had booths there for
information about the Legion and for fund raising too. Gainesville
had several assemblies, the most notable being the one at
Kanapaha Veterans Park on Tower Road, just outside Gainesville.
There were skydivers, a flyover by four WWII aircraft, music
provided by the Fort Clarke Middle School Band, speeches and
demonstrations, booths from local Veteran Service Organizations,
and veterans and their families in attendance, all to honor our
Veterans. Sunday also had music programs dedicated to the
Veterans, so the weekend had plenty to offer, with something for
just about everyone. And the general gun hunting season opened
for the hunters, too.
Thursday evening, November 16, Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 of
the American Legion will have their annual Thanksgiving Dinner,
beginning at 7:00 PM. It will be a covered dish dinner with the
Post providing turkey, ham and mashed potatoes and everyone
bringing a favorite covered dish item to share. The Post requests
everyone bring either a canned or dried food item
for an area food pantry or an unwrapped toy for the US Marine
Corps "Toys for Tots" campaign
as an 'entry fee' for the dinner. With these donations, the Post can
help insure that Thanksgiving and Christmas will be a little happier
for some area families this year. Bring a favorite covered
dish, a happy face and come join with Post 91 for good food and
fellowship with the veterans and their families in the American
Legion Family.
Several members of Post 149 (Charlie Fidler Post 149
Commander and District Judge Advocate; Jim Ramos, District
Vice-Commander; and Wayne Gravely, District Vice-Commander)
attended the Installation and Veterans day program for Ocala Post
210 as part of the Fourth District Staff with Fourth District
Commander Ray Hall and District Sergeant-at-Arms, Marie
Kramer ( Homassassa Springs Post 166 Commander).
Commander Hall installed the Legion Post 210 Officers and Fourth
District Auxiliary President Peggy Hearlson, assisted by her staff
(Lynne Hall, Rita McLaughlin and Sandy White) installed the
officers of Auxiliary Unit 210. Also in attendance were Past
Department of Florida Commander, Larry White and Department
Sergeant-at-Arms, Phil Hearlson. PDC White and Sgt-at-Arms
Hearlson are well known to our Posts as
friends and also past Fourth District Commanders that we have
worked with.
One hundred and forty-three years ago on November 19, 1863,
President Abraham Lincoln
delivered his two minute speech at the dedication of 17 acres of the
Gettysburg Battlefield as a National Cemetery. Lincoln's
Gettysburg Address has since become a symbol of the definition of
democracy and is one of the most recognized speeches of our
Nation.
Continue to remember our Armed Forces, all over the world,
especially those in "Harm's Way", each day in your thoughts and
prayers. Here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans,
their widows and the families of those called to active duty in
service to our Country helping however and whenever we can.
For God and Country,


ALA Unit 383

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
2006 Bear Football Season

Exciting And Successful


ea%


Congratulations Bear football team on completing a very
successful 2006 football season. This year's team will be -.
remembered as a team that never quit and played with intensity f
for a full four quarters. This team of 2006 kept you on the
edge of your seat and was exciting to watch. This team
played unselfishly in their support for one another.
Being a young team, many didn't think we would break
*500 this year. It became evident as we clawed our way to a winning streak of 8-0, that the Bears-
.were a team to be taken seriously. Our graduating seniors will have a great pride in remembering
*for some time to come their senior football year.
-, ;We want to congratulate our coaching staff, under the direction of Head Coach Brent Wilkerson
fadr putting together great game plans and teaching our young men the concept of sportsmanship
.and what it means to contribute unselfishly to a team.
-We have always felt that many lessons of life.are learned in the sports arena. Somewhere in life,
these young men and women will face difficult circumstances just as they have while playing
sports. But their sports experiences have taught them, if they work harder and never lose sight of
their goals, they will again be victorious.
A special thanks to our community of support groups that rallied around this year's team. Thank
you School Board, Administrators, Faculty, Staff, Students, Booster Club, Cheerleaders, Band, and
JROTC. Also thanks to other special community supporters that encouraged our team and also
provided meals for our JV and Varsity teams.
Remember Bear sports continue and we hope to see you at our basketball, softball, and baseball
games.


Choose Quality; Choose
Tim Bowen
Haven Hospice, Executive Director
November is National Hospice Month and
the perfect time to talk about what to look for
in a quality hospice should the need arise.
It is often thought that hospice
organizations are all the same. Not true. When
:you've seen one hospice program, you've only
:seen one hospice program.
Hospice care, like any service, varies from
.organization to organization.
When deciding on a hospice, some key
.qualities to look for are responsiveness and
access to quality care, full-time physicians who
,make house calls, frequency of staff visits,
full-time pharmacists, accessible medical
,equipment, home health aides who assist with
,personal care, and inpatient acute and respite
,care. Hospice care also should include
caregiver education and support, a strong
Volunteer base, children's services, social
'workers and chaplains, bereavement services
before and after death or loss, as well as
provide services regardless of ability to pay.
Responsiveness and access to quality care
are critical regardless of where patients call
"home." A quality hospice provides access to
patient care and support 24 hours a day, seven
'days a week. Staff and volunteers should be
.individuals who live in the community they
"serve and who are available to meet with or
,respond to patients and families within two
hours of any need.
A quality hospice is committed to keeping
patients and families in control of their
situation by offering options and respecting the
choices they make. This personalized care
requires that all hospice staff and volunteers be
trained to assist and support people in making
decisions about what kind of care is needed,
from whom, and where that care will be
provided.
Highly skilled staff trained to actively and
aggressively manage pain and other distressing
symptoms are important. This means nurses
make frequent home visits based on the needs
of each patient, and pain is assessed daily. It
means hospice care aides are available to assist
with personal care, as well as caregiver respite
and support.
In those situations when a patient is unable
to remain at "home," quality hospices afford
,the option of inpatient care centers. Care
'centers offer a safe refuge of reassurance and


Carefully
support. They are an option for casing the
burden on caregivers when they need a break
from the day-to-day challenges of caring for a
loved one with life-limiting illness, or when a
patient needs help managing pain and
symptoms during times of acute need. At
hospice care centers, patients are surrounded
by a team of doctors, nurses, hospice care
aides, social workers, chaplains, volunteers,
and their loved ones in a comfortable and
supportive environment -- a home away from
home.

A quality hospice is dedicated to
maximizing life for patients and their loved
ones by providing accessible, comprehensive
services as a part of its program, not by some
contracted vendor. Medical equipment needs
are easily met using technicians trained in the
special needs of hospice patients. Full-time
pharmacists are available to keep track of up-
to-date advances in pain management and
symptom control. Full-time physicians on staff
make visits to patient homes and nursing
homes to stay abreast of the patient's changing
condition.

Where patient care is provided is a personal
choice of the patient and family. A quality
hospice provides care wherever a patient calls
home -- whether it is in an assisted living
facility, a nursing home, a hospital room, an
apartment, a house, a trailer or car. Whether it
is located in a major metropolitan area or a
remote rural area, or has electricity and
running water or not.

Quality hospice care supports the entire
family as well as the community. Outreach
programs such as caregiver education,
advanced-care planning workshops, individual
and family grief support, children's services,
and counseling are important qualities to look
for when selecting a hospice.

Remember that when you or a loved one is
faced with a life-limiting illness or loss, you
have choices. If you choose hospice, choose
one that serves you and your family best.
Choose a hospice that provides
comprehensive, compassionate care while
respecting each person's needs, beliefs or
wishes.
Choose quality. Choose carefully.

Springhouse Quilters finished their quilt raffles on Saturday,
November 11, during the Downhome Day and City of Trenton
street sales. The night owls of the guild made a wall hanging,
patriotic, hand embroidery, Angel Quilt and the Gillliam family
donated a Double Wedding Ring quilt to the guild. Both quilts
were given away last Saturday.

December, the quilters will hold their annual Christmas party.
Hostesses for the Christmas party are Jan Litzinger, Betty Willms
and Anna Gilliam.

Log Cabin Quilters met

was show day. Martha Asbell
has finished a crocheted
bedspread and what a beauty.
It took her ten months to make
and it goes to her daughter
Joan. Alice Mae has finished
an Umbrella Girl quilt top. She
has made so many quilts since
she started with us in October
of 1983.
If you have quilts, crafts of
what have you please bring
them in for us to hang. Be sure
you have a tag, at least a 2x3
with your name, price or not
for sale. These tags have to be
large enough for people to see
and please use a safety pin, no
straight pins or staples. We
take care of all the sales your
tag is put in an envelope with
your name on it and at the end
of the show, we settle with
you. We will also have food
each day.
Monday we will be going
to St. Francis House with a
load of what have you. About
80 stocking caps have been
knitted for the homeless
children. We have socks,
underwear and so much more.
Some times I say, but for the
Grace of God, that would be
me.
Well we had a chicken
dinner, baked pot pie, dressing,
soup, okra, rice, salads,
coconut pie, apple cake, pound
cake, chocolate cake, etc.
When we make mis-
takes, we cannot turn
the clock back and try
again. All we can do is
use the present well.

Deep-Fried Turkey
1 thawed turkey, up to
14 pounds
Cajun marinade
Be sure the turkey is
completely thawed and
free of excess water. Inject
it with marinade. Cover
the outside of the turkey
with your favorite dry rub.
Fill pot with oil to fill
line. Bring oil to 400F.
Place turkey horizontally,
breast up, in bailing bas-
ket. Wearing a long bar-
becue mitt, slowly lower
the basket with the turkey
into the oil Cook for 3 min-
utes per pound, and then
add 5 minutes to total
cooking time. Turkey may
float before cooking time
is complete. Continue
cooking for total amount
of time calculated.
Example: cooking a

3 minutes x 14 = 42
42 minutes + 5 = 47 minutes
When the turkey is done,
turn the appliance OFF
and slowly remove the bas-
ket. Use drain hook on bas-
ket to attach basket to

The Varsity Bear Football Team and Coaches would like the

the meals for the team on their trip to Pensacola. They boys
were well fed and had a very nice trip.
We would also like to thank all the Bear Fans that traveled
to Pensacola to support us while we played. It is a good feeling
to look in the stands and they are full of fans so far away from
home. It has been a good season and the boys would like to
thank Coach Wilkerson, Coach Thomas, Coach Evans, Coach
Sauls, Coach Chesser, Coach Whittington, and Coach Hope (PJ)
for taking them this far. We really appreciate the dedication of
Mr. Boorum for keeping our stats and Mr. Ward for filming all
the games. It has been a good year and we could not have gotten
to the play-offs without working together as a team.
Thanks to everyone that supported our team. GO BEARS!
Sincerely,
Varsity Football Team and Coaches
