By Terri Langford
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher announced at the Board of County
Commissioner's meeting last week that his office received news
they have been awarded a grant which will be used to set up a
position for a speed enforcement officer.
Hatcher noted that funding for the three-year grant comes from
the Department of Transportation State and Community Highway
Safety Program. The first year $76,580.00 will be released to
DSO; $38,290.00 the second year; and the third year, the county
will absorb the budget for the officer.

Clearing Begins At Airport Restaurant Site
1 *


Bulldozers began clearing land near the Cross City Airport which will be
the home of a new restaurant and office complex.
By Terri Langford
General Leasing and Development began clearing land next to
the Cross City Airport which will be used to build a restaurant and
office for the local company.
There has been much anticipation as to when the construction
was going to begin and after negotiations between the county and
Town Cross City concerning water and sewage hookup, the "go-
ahead" .was given on the project.
"We couldn't be happier that this project is in the works,"
stated former County Commissioner John Dri'ggers. "With this
addition to the Airport's Industrial Park, it is certain that air-traffic
will continue to grow,'" Driggers added. "Of course as a citizen,
I'm glad that we will have another choice as to a place to eat."
A spokeswoman for General Leasing and Development noted
that their office will be the first building to be constructed,
immediately followed by the restaurant which will have dine in
service, a separate deli and a bakery.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the next few months with
a Spring/Summer opening.

Will Saddam cheat the hangman?
Saddam Hussein has been sentenced to death by hanging, and
depending on how well Ramsey Clark and the rest of his legal staff
can play the appeals game,-he-could find himself on the end of the
rope as early as'JTaiiary'dfnin year. *'
."We know that Iraq's elected government is not shy about
carrying out a death sentence. Earlier this year, 27 criminals were
executed in one day, and they hadn't been on death row for a
decade, either. Under Iraq's new elected government, the appeals
pocess is not open-ended, as it so often seems to be in this country.
' However, let us bear in mind that the left-leaning alarmists
among us have already predicted an uprising of Saddam loyalists if
their beloved dictator is strung up like a horse-thief in the early
American West. That sentiment was mostly the ratings of pacifists
aid those who oppose the death penalty under any circumstances,.
and wasn't given much credence, either here or in Iraq.
Our November elections haven't necessarily changed any of this,
but with the incoming congressional leadership vowing a rapid
withdrawal of our troops, those Saddam loyalists who remain have
certainly been encouraged. Meanwhile, Iraq's elected government
tiight be getting nervous about their own survival in the absence of
American troop support.
I This could start as a series of delays in Saddam's scheduled
execution, as the Iraqis evaluate insurgent .response .to tfie
withdra:wal of American forces. Not all insurgent groups would be
eager to restore Saddam to power, and some probably wouldn't be
terribly upset if he kept his date with the hangman. However, the
a ti-US elements could be expected to stick together until such time
as the American presence was history, by which time Iraq's elected
government would be getting very uneasy.
- As Iran, Syria and perhaps other regional belligerents poured
money and personnel into the insurgencies operating in Iraq, the
Iraqi government could become more agreeable to negotiations,
which might include amnesty for Saddam. And of course, a hasty
Withdrawal of our forces could even result in an overthrow of Iraq's
currentt government.
.^ It will be argued that, given the past hostilities between Iran and
Iraq under Saddam Hussein, the former Iraqi dictator would not fare
well in the event of a takeover by an insurgency backed by Iran.
C Perhaps; but consider also that Iran's leadership would like
nothing better than to embarrass the United States and thus lessen
pur influence in the Middle East and other parts of the world. And
*hat could be more embarrassing than freeing Saddam Hussein?
[ Actually, there is something that could be more embarrassing to
the United States than simply freeing Saddam---something like
Batting him up as titular head of a puppet regime. This would negate
-George W. Bush's 2003 "Mission Accomplished" proclamation,
raq's free elections and the capture of Saddam three years ago as a
)najor achievement in the war effort.
SIn other words, it would mean we lost the war. It would turn Iraq
ipto another Vietnam, which is what our own, home-grown anti-
American insurgency has been hoping for from day one.
z" What's scary is not just that Saddam might escape the
lhangman's noose, but that we will soon have people in control of
:Congress who might be willing to implement and/or accept policies
:that would make this possible.

Marine Corp. "It really was."
Prior to boarding a train in 1940 headed for boot camp in San Diego, Howell was 23, single, living
in Birmingham, and working in a sticky situation for some "bad guys" involved in illegal gambling.
Then one night he met a recruiting sergeant who was staying at the same hotel he was living in. The
next day Howell went to the
nearest recruiting office to "just
S. ask a few questions" and two
days later he was on the train.
"With an interest and
experience in photography-
Howell worked in a studio for
several years after dropping out
of high school at the age of 16-
it seemed only fitting that Howell
attend an aerial photography
school in Pensacola after his
completion of boot camp. At the

A young John Howell, taking ariel photographs of WWII. war progressed, Howell traveled
between Pearl Harbor, Wake and
Midway. Fiye days before the June 4, 1942 Battle of Midway, Howell went back to Pearl Harbor.
"I got lucky," Howell said, thinking of what could have happened had he been there.
Over the next year, Howell was stationed at the Ewa Marine Corp Station near Pearl Harbor doing
reconnaissance work. Howell described his days of mapping as long and tedious. Holding a bulky 8-
inch by 10-inch camera between your knees isn't exactly easy, he explained with a laugh.
In 1943, Howell went on leave and got married. He was soon stationed at the El Toro Air Station
in California where he became a
photographic officer training
young men to become aerial
photographers. Although he Au&.
enjoyed it, Howell said he didn't c s ..a ..... ,
want to be training.
"I wanted to be taking "
photos," he said.

his fellow Marines. The photos
are reminders of the unique people he met and of the men he once knew.
After the war ended in 1945, Howell went to North China for a few weeks. From the air, he took
photographs of the Chinese countryside, and while on the ground he photographed the people of
China.
One photo included in Howell's collection shows a group of Chinese children sitting on the ground
facing a man teaching them English. The sentence written on the small chalk board simply says, "What
is this?"
Another photo, less thought provoking than the aforementioned, is of Howell himself asking an
older Chinese man to twist his long mustache.

Howell's picture of this "gunner" shows how the planes' bad
protected during battle.


"We were just being silly,"
Howell said.
Before long, it was time for
Howell to head' back- to" the
States, but not before a minor
inconvenience delayed his trip.
Howell was aboard a ship
when a great typhoon began to
develop in the China Sea, forcing
the ship to head straight into it.
"We rode it for about four or
five days," Howell .said. "It was
the closest I ever came to death."
Howell documented ,the
typhoon with his camera, taking
pictures during the typhoon and
also of the aftermath: ships
.- washed ashore ruined from the
power of the storm.
Due to the typhoon, Howell
had to stay a few days in
ck was Tsingtao where he witnessed the
people of China celebrating their


recent independence from Japan.
"People were.in the streets dancing and having fun," Howell said.
Camera in hand, he photographed the jovial scene.
Back in the States, Howell continued pursuing a career in photography by opening his own studio
in Merced, Calif., and later one in'South Carolina. No longer photographing enemy territory from the
air, Howell photographed children, dogs, weddings and such. He also did work for local newspapers
photographing famous people and presidents.
It's been a few decades since he retired from photography, but according to Howell it was a
great career filled with memorable moments and people.
"I've met some outstanding people in my lifetime," Howell said. "I was very fortunate."

What are you thankful for?
Well there have been many
things to be thankful for. But
what are you thankful for? I

Ever since I moved here from
Miami I have found many
things to be thankful for here.
Here are some things I want
.everyone to know I'm.thankful

Also 1SG snyder who has

This is who I'm thankful

Happy Hunting!


Nathanael Bryan, age 13, just 3 days into dog running season, got this
nice spike in the Shired Island Hunting Club. Way to go "Duke"!

GRANT, count. From,,, 1A
and 20 miles of SR 349. In addition there is another approximate
800 miles of local roads that network off US 19 and SR 349. With
the increase in population over the past few years and another 10%
expected in the next 4 years, it has become quite a challenge for
Dixie's law enforcement to keep up with the needs for traffic
control throughout the county.
With these issues in mind, Hatcher applied for the grant in
hopes that Dixie would be able to enhance the DSO's enforcement
and target areas that have speed related problems.
The first year's monies will go towards the purchase of a new
un-marked patrol car, completely equipped with radar, radio,
onboard camera, etc. It will also pay the salary and benefits for a
new speed enforcement officer.
The following year, 2008, the grant will offset half of the cost
for the officer. By the third year the County will have been able to
adjust their budget to include the position.
Hatcher stated, "I feel this will be a great addition to our patrol
and will give us the chance to help residents who have experienced
speeding problems in their neighborhoods; making it safer for
.everyone."
It is projected that the Speed Enforcement Deputy will be on
patrol by early spring.

WATER SHORTAGE,
Cont. From 1A
the National Weather Service (NWS). Most areas of the District
are experiencing low or extremely low groundwater and
surfacewater levels due to below-average monthly rainfall. With a
cumulative 12.17-inch rainfall deficit, the year ending October
31, 2006 is the eighth driest year since 1931..
New record monthly lows were observed at the Aucilla River
near Lamont, the Steinhatchee River near Cross City, and for the
second month in a row, the Santa Fe River near Fort White. The
end-of-month reading at the Withlacoochee River near Pinetta
tied the historic monthly low at that station, after setting a new
low last month.
Water shortage advisories are issued by the District in
accordance with Florida Statutes and the Florida Administrative
Code, which gives them authority to implement water shortage
plans.
With the NWS predicting a return -to El Niflo weather
patterns this winter, District officials hope winter rains will
replenish the water resources to levels where the advisory no
longer is needed. Until then, they offer some important water-
saving tips:
-*Reduce lawn/landscape irrigation.
**Don't water between 10 a.m. 4 p.m.
**Install an automatic rain shutoff switch on irrigation
system.
**Plant drought-resistant trees, plants and grasses.
-*Equip hoses with automatic shutoff nozzles.
**Wash vehicles infrequently and only on porous surfaces.
--Use a broom or blower not a hose to clean sidewalks,
driveways, parking areas.
**Fix leaky faucets and toilets, which can waste up to 100
gallons per day.
Replace older fixtures with low-flow devices.
**Don't let the water run while brushing teeth, shaving, or
washing dishes.
**Take shorter showers; staying under 5 minutes can save
1,000 gallons per month.
**Don't use toilet as a waste basket.
**Use appliances efficiently (run full loads in clothes washer
and dishwasher).

Manatees Heading For
Florida manatees are on the move seeking
warmwater sites to spend the winter. That
means boaters must be cautious about looking
out for our official marine mammal and for
changing speed zones on waterways.
Manatees generally start traveling to warm
water when the air temperature drops below 50
degrees or when the water temperature dips to
68 degrees.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) changes seasonal speed
zone signs in mid-November on many
waterways to accommodate manatee migration.
Boaters should scan the water near or in
front of the boat looking for swirls resembling a
large footprint, a repetitive line of half-moon
swirls, a mud trail, a snout or fluke (tail)
breaking the water's surface.

Faith Baptist Church News
What a beautiful Lord's Day. The cool weather is delightful,
our crowd was large and we all had a wonderful day in the Lord.
Brother Jackie did his usual good job in the pulpit delivering the
messages God had laid on his heart, Brother Jim Fisher sang in the
morning service and the Britton/Crenshaw combo did
instrumentals in the evening service. Everyone did great jobs and
the services were wonderful. If you missed either service, you truly
missed a blessing.
The next month will be very busy as we prepare for our
Christmas program being organized by Janet Osteen. Janet does a
great job and the program this year will be "western Christmas
style". We will update you as to the dates and times as the time
nears.
We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to
give special thanks to God for all he's given you and done for you.
We pray that your day with your family will be very special and
that everyone will be safe as they travel.
Remember to pray for the less fortunate, the sick and shut-ins,
and the ones who have no family to be with during this time of
year. Especially pray for the lost. God will bless you for it. Until
we meet again, remember we at Faith love you and are praying for
you. Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you.

The Word Made
Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say God's creature
(?nan) in his carnal thinking has
put this Mark on the human race
by all kinds of imaginary things.
,Anything that looks strange and
wrong, or looks suspicious,
Especially if backed by the U.S.
Government, is quickly downed
by religious belief and branded as
the coming of the Mark of the
Beast. I remember there came a
-'rationing of food by the
Government and food rationing
:;stamps were given to the public.
Even as a little boy, I remember
the word got around Christian-
mninded people that this is the
Mark of the Beast being put on the
people. When the unions started to
be formed on the behalf of the
Working people, such as the CIO
and the UMW; etc., the word of
vhat was happening was brought
to us. We were told not to take
part in this, because it was surely
the coming of the Mark of the
Beast. Many other times, even
until now, I have been told the
Mark of the Beast is coming.
' I, the son of man, want you to
see the working of a Beast that has
9ix wings that carry, him to and ,fro
1Xfthe earth dw working in people,: and .are
attached to the winds of the
Scriptures. They are not seen
naturally, they are spiritually
discerned. The Psalmist David
saw these wings. He saw the Lord
'God riding upon a cherub coming
b'n the wings of the wind. (Read
Psalms 18:10) These are the same
wings that carry the works of the
Beast through the earth. I
mentioned four spiritual heads that
spiritually appear back in the
Garden of Eden. "And a river
went out of Eden to Water the
Garden; and from thence it was
,parted, and became into four
'heads." (Genesis 2:10) These four
Heads that started back there came
ton through the scriptures and
legan to make themselves known
in the presence of the seraphims in
',the 6"' Chapter of Isaiah.
I, the son of man, say Isaiah
said, "In the year that King Uzziah
lied, I saw also the Lord sitting
upon a throne, high and lifted up,
4and his train filled the temple."
Itsaiah said, "above this throne
stood the seraphims; each one had
!six wings." (Isaiah 6:1-3) Here is
*the first living-like creature seen
tin the Heavenly realm, having six
.wings in His presence. Inside the
presence of these seraphims came
t he vision of being incomplete in
the Lord's presence. They cried
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of
.(hosts: the whole earth is full of
:*glory. Isaiah realized he was
getting a vision from the Lord, and
:it came in the presence of the
,seraphims. The presence of the
Lord among these seraphims
"opened Isaiah's spiritual eyes,
until he was able to look at
himself. This great prophet cries
,out, woe is me! For I am undone;
*because I am a man of unclean
,lips: for mine eyes have seen the
King, the Lord of hosts." (Isaiah
6:5) Continued next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
It is that time of year again in which our nation has set aside
a special time to give thanks to our Heavenly Father for all the
blessings He has shed upon us. We truly thank Him for all
His favor upon New Prospect, the accomplishments which we, as a
church body, have achieved in His name during the preceding
months, and for all the personal blessings which He has bestowed
on each of us and our families. Without Him, we would be
tiothing, and we praise His name for everything! It was a blessing
once again to be in church Sunday, listening to the beautiful songs
of praise by our choir, and hearing the Bread of Life so ably
extolled by Bro. Billy as the Spirit led him to preach from 2nd
Samuel 7:4-5.
In order for families to spend time together, we will have
no mid-week prayer services on Wednesday, and New Prospect
wishes everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving with family and
friends. Please remember to keep your prayers going for those
,on all the prayer lists, our President and other leaders, our military
:personnel, and one another. As always, you're invited to worship
.and fellowship with us anytime...we covet your presence! May
God bless and keep you.
Thank You
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who
calledd sent flowers, and came to see me during my stay in the
:hospital. On November 3rd I was in an automobile accident that left
me alone on Andrew Sauls Rd. Thank you Heather Thrift for
stopping and. finding me and calling E.M.S. Thanks, to Leslie
Biannin for all the things you took care of. They were very
ifiportant and I couldn't have done it without you.
I thank God for sparing my life and keeping his hand on me. A
special thanks to my family for taking care of me in the hospital
and now that I'm home you haven't left my side. Thanks to All of
my friends for coming to see me and bringing me food! Your
friendship is not taken lightly!
Please keep me in your prayers as I continue to recover at home
from my injuries!
God Bless you all,
Chad Crews
Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"The Bastard Son"
I, the Day of the Lord, say not long ago we were reading (Hebrews
12:5-10) concerning the true sons and the bastard sons. We had often in
the past meditated upon the fact that the child known as a bastard child,
could in no wise help or change the circumstances of his or her birth. Yet
we knew well there was a stigma attached to that child, even under the old
testament especially. We were never quite able to reconcile all that we
were taught concerning such children, until the Lord put a thought in our
minds that settled the whole question.
I,. the Day of the Lord, say read Hebrews 12:5-10. "And you have
forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children. My
son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou are
rebuked of him; for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth
every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with
you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But
if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye
bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh
which corrected us, and we gave them reverence; shall we not much rather
be in subjection unto the Father of spirits and live? For they verily for a
few days chastened us after their own pleasure. But He for our profit, that
we might be partakers of His holiness."
I, the Day of the Lord, say in the above quotation we find two kinds of
sofis. At least in one sense of the word they are sons. There is the son that
receives chastening of the Lord and there is the bastard son who does not.
In. one sense of the word, the bastard or as some translations put it, the
spurious son is as much a son as the true son. It can make no difference
whether the spurious son knows who his father is or not, he has one just
th.e same as the legitimate son.
I, the Day of the Lord, say we have come to see there is something in
this and related passages that we would like you to consider. We are not
being dogmatic in anything that we will say, for we realize only to well.
that these are days of change and whom man speaks it is wrong, but when
the word is from God it is true. We do feel this is of God or'we would not
bring it to you.

They say memories are golden
Well maybe that is true,
We never wanted memories
We only wanted you.

So many times we needed you,
So many times we cried
If love alone could have
saved you,
You never would have died.

In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
In our hearts you hold a
special place
No one can ever fill.

Our chain of loved ones
is broken
And nothing is the same
But as God calls us, one
by one
The chain will link again...

You are loved and missed by
so many and for Eternity you
will live in our hearts...

Women My

Mom & My

Nannie
7 -"t m


Shown above: Mom, Mary Gray
& Nannie Peacock
In the passing of family and
friends in your life and the years
to come, you realize how much
they touched your life in so many
ways. It is not until they are
passed and gone away that you
come to realize how much you
really loved them and that they
loved you also. There is not a day
that goes by that I tell you, "Mom,
I Love You" and so wish you
could hear the words, and I could
hear you say, "I Love You Too."
To thank you for the many
things that you did without so your
children could have something. It
is strange how you become an
adult and look back on the
memories of your loved ones who
have left, that you realize when
Mom was being wrong, she was
actually right, and you were the
one who was wrong, but thought
you were right. To be able to go to
you and ask, "What should I do
Mom?", when life has you down.
To be able to place my head in
your lap as you caress my face and
you tell me, yes, I am going to
make it, even though the waywill
be hard. To be able to call you
when I'm sick, and you come fix
your famous potato soup with
loads of pepper in it. To be able to
stop by Linda's and get your iced
tea, that nobody could make it as
good as you Mom. There are no
more "to be able" sentences
because you are gone.
It was your time to leave us,
however hard it has become for
those who are left behind. We can
only reach out to the One who
called you home to understand
that it was His will. Ah, but then
you remember the promise that
you hold within yourself. You will
be seeing them again, because
Jesus provided the way, He is.
Lord, and He lives within you
each day.
As the holidays approach you
remember all the good and bad
memories, the love and friendship
that you shared with those who
have come and gone. You
remember the times of gatherings
at Nannies house eating all her
Good Cooking and playing
Horseshoes! Ah, to hear their
voice, to see them smile, if only

2nd.


for a little while. Could it, would
it, satisfy the yearning and sorrow
in my heart?
As the day approaches of your
journey that ended on earth and
began again in the Heavens of
Heaven, you remember and draw
upon all that was taught to you by
these people who have come and
gone. You remember all the
"lessons" Mom taught you.
Lessons about right from wrong.
How to love yourself and others.
How to be and show respect to
your elders, even though they
were just a few years older than
you. How to forgive when you
have been wronged, even though it
wasn't right. How yes, you will
fall down; but that doesn't mean
you have to stay on the ground.
You get up, brush yourself off,
and start over again, and again,
and again.
For the people who still have
their Mom or Nannie and other
loved ones in their lives', stop a
moment. Reflect and realize that


one day they will be passed and'
gone away. Take that extra minute:
and call them just to say, "Thank.
you and I love you for all that you;
have done for me". Fulfill that-
promise that you made to them or
spend a day with just the two of"
you. Remember your loved ones,.
for you see, one day a loss will.
come in your life and your heart,.
and He will show you the way day*
by day by day.
If you know of some one who-
has a loved one who has passed,
and gone away, stop a moment.
Take, that extra minute and call':
them to just say, "Hey, how are;
you doing, me and Jesus love'
you." If you see them, give them a
hug or smile because they have a'
sorrow only love and Christ can'
fill. Put a little Sunshine in,
someone's day by saying, "Me.
and Jesus Love You!" ,

In Loving Memory
From the deepest part of
my heart I thank God for
having such a wonderful father
as you. I know there were
times when I had trouble
accepting the things you were
trying to teach me, when I
thought you were being too
strict or old-fashioned, when I.
thought you didn't understand.
But I've come to realize
that you understood all along,
that you were guiding me, not
only with love, but with your i
experience as a parent.
Because you have always
cared, I know that I am a
better person, and I am
prepared for whatever life
has to offer. Christopher Columbus Johnson
You've always been Jr. June 8, 1924 to November
there when I needed you and 26. 1999
you have certainly filled my life with bright and happy moments
which I will always keep close to my heart.
Even now I feel so much closer to you, and more and more I
find new ways to relate to you. New feelings I wish I could share.,
Your care touches me everyday.
The greatest gift of all is that you made all of your children feel
this same exact way. Only you could have made that possible.
We thank God that you were a loving husband to our mother
and that you set an example for us to follow.
We love & miss you, but will see you again one day.
Your loving wife, Rosa Lee Johnson & children, Gail, Mickey,
Martha Ann, Sheba, Jerome & Rebecca

Thanksgiving

Facts
Americans feast on 535
million pounds of turkey on
Thanksgiving.
More than 40 million
green bean casseroles are
served on Thanksgiving.
About 50% of
Americans put the stuffing
inside the turkey.
There was no milk,
cheese, bread, butter or
pumpkin pie at the original
1621 Thanksgiving Day feast.
The drink that the
Puritans brought with them in
the Mayflower was the beer.
President Abraham
Lincoln established the date
for our National Thanksgiving
Day celebration in 1863.
Benjamin Franklin
wanted the turkey to be our
national bird.
The cranberry got its
name because the pale pink
blossoms on the plant
resembled a crane's head and
neck. The name craneberry
stuck, eventually becoming
cranberry.
The heaviest turkey ever
raised weighed in at 86 pounds
about the size of a German
Shepherd!

How Can The Social Security Disability SpecialistAt 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.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2006


Benefit Held For Dixie County

Sheriff's Deputy Paul Gainey


By Terri Langford
This is the time of year we
stop and reflect on the many
blessings we have received
throughout the year. The Paul
Gainey family has been able to
count those blessings. even
through great adversity, due to
the wonderful network of
family and friends who have
made it their mission to help
them in their time of need.
Paul, the Resource Officer
at Ruth Rains Middle School,
was rushed to North Florida
Regional Hospital on October
81h and underwent surgery the
following day after doctors
discovered his spinal cord had
been compressed 90% due to
,several of his disc becoming
'herniated.
Paul would spend 27 days
in the hospital, 19 in intensive
'care, and another twenty-two
,at the Shands Rehab Center
:before coming home last week,
'November 11th. "I am doing
:much better now that I am at
:home," stated Paul. "My spirit
:has really been lifted." "It's
'been hard and I know I
:couldn't have done it without
the love and care of my wife
and daughter, my family and
:all my friends," he added.
Paul was able to attend one
of several benefits that have
been put on as a way of
collecting monies to help the
Gainey's offset medical
expenses. Paul will continue
,to need rehabilitation, going
.three days a week in
IGainesville as he continues to
progress from an accident that
has left him unable to walk.
What are Paul's
blessings...before the surgery
Paul was unable to feel
anything from the neck down,
he now can sit up on his own
and has feelings from the
middle chest up. "I have been
really concentrating on my
upper body strength so that I
can pull myself in and out of
the wheel chair and move
about a bit better," stated Paul.
In fact Paul has been so
determined that he was
released in the half the time of
what doctors call a normal


Pictured above are Candi, Macaele and Paul Gainey.


recovery. Paul's prognosis is
good. In most cases like his,
patients are able to regain their
mobility within a couple of
years. With Paul's own
positive mental attitude and the
huge support groups he has,
they are all optimistic his time
will be shorter.
Paul feels his biggest
blessing is the outpouring of
love and support he and his
family have received. "I can't
even begin to tell you what this
all means to me," stated Paul
with a tear in his eye. "This is
going to be a wonderful
Thanksgiving," he added. "We
have so much to be thankful
for."
Paul also wanted to send
out a special "Hello!" to all the
students at Ruth Raines Middle
School and the staff there. "I


really miss the younguns'
there," Paul said. Word has it,
they miss you too.
If you would like to help
our Dixie neighbor, you can
make your donation to the Paul
Gainey Benefit Fund at the
Drummonds State Bank. It's
easy to help and you will
surely receive a blessing when
you do so.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2006


The Buddy Show
by Bud'J.artizn
Life is good, but could be better
GAINESVILLE -To paraphrase what they say in
that familiar chant, this was a great week to be a
Florida Gator, although maybe not so much a
Florida State Seminole or Miami Hurricane.
Life in "The Swamp" hasn't been
this grand since the 01' Ball Coach was around,
hanging 50 on opponents, winning
championships, and cracking wisely to the
media.
On Saturday, Urban Meyer reached a
milestone by posting his 10th win of the season -
a number not seen in seen in these parts since the


turn of the century. The 62-0 victory over the lowly
Western Carolina Catamounts gave Meyer a 19-4 record,
matching that of Steve Spurrier's first two years at Florida.
With a win over FSU, Meyer can surpass
Spurrier's mark and if he wins in Atlanta, he will have
equaled Spurrier's total SEC titles those first two years:
one, officially.
What does that say?
"It says we are going in the right direction,"
said Athletics Director Jeremy Foley, who hired Meyer.
Hopes are alive for a shot at the national
championship if Florida can win out and get a little back-
door help from the opponents of Southern Cal and Notre
Dame.
Meanwhile, to fill in the down time between
the SEC championship and the bowl game, Gator fans can
entertain themselves by following the plight of Billy
Donovan's defending national champion basketball team.
Not a bad way to spend an "off-season."
So, yes, life IS good for the Gators these days.
Now they just need to be a little lucky with the
computers and human pollsters, who most likely aren't
going to be impressed with the shellacking of the Division
I-. A Catamounts on Saturday. In fact, it might cause a
Florida to dip a little. They are going to be criticized for
playing a weak opponent, even though their schedule ranks
fourth toughest in the country according to the NCAA.
Perhaps they can hold.serve at no worse than
No. 3 or maybe slide to No. 2 in the USA Today Coaches
Poll and/or the Associated Poll, but it would take more than
that for the Gators to vault past Southern Cal in the BCS
ranking without a Trojan loss.
As the nation's eyes focused on what some are
calling "The Game of the Century" in Columbus Saturday,
it won't be overlooked that the Gators played a patsy on the
same weekend. This was an opponent chosen for revenue -
Western Carolina only gets $425,000 of the gate when the
12th game was added.
Funny thing is that the pundits on the sports
networks were all saying a few months ago that the Gators
wouldn't be competing for the national title because "their
schedule is just too tough."
No matter, one must commend Meyer for
bringing Florida football back to a position of prestige
again. Yet why isn't Meyer turning back flips?
"There's some work to be done yet," he said.
"You walk around this great stadium and there are some
numbers void on that wall where we come out. You look up
where it says 'SEC Champions' and the last one was '00.'
That's not right ... we've got to get one that says 2006
somewhere."
Although none of the 21 seniors saying


goodbye owned a championship Saturday as the played
their last game in "The Swamp," they could rest easy
knowing that they had helped restore the glory to the
program.


y- ..C..


It might not count in style points or even in the
BCS standings, but, indeed, once again it
could be bragged that it was great to be a
Florida Gator.
Bo 'greatest coach ever' says Meyer
Urban Meyer is from the Ohio
State family tree, but considers himself a
disciple of the late Bo Schembechler, who
coached under the late Woody Hayes. Like
Bo, Meyer was an Ohio State assistant, as
were two of Urban's former bosses, Lou
Holtz and Earle Bruce.
The Florida coach said he was


deeply saddened at the news of Schembechler's death
Friday and was surprised to learn that most of his Gator
players hadn't heard of him. Meyer is especially fond of the
way Schembechler got involved in the lives of his players,
a trait the Florida coach has adopted.
"What's his place in history?" Meyer asked
rhetorically. "I think he's the greatest football coach in
history."
Quick Jump Starts
1. The Florida football Fans' Gatorade Team
of the Century featured 26 names, but among the missing
were Steve Spurrier and Wes Chandler.
2. I hear that Jeff Bowden is the first of many on
the FSU offensive staff who will be departing Tallahassee
soon.
3. It figures that football man Bo
Schembechler, who dedicated every ounce of his being to
the Michigan maize and blue, would die because his heart
gave out of beats.
4 Here's the deal on Bob Knight: He should
never put his hands on a player never, period, for any
reason.
5. The joke is on us: As a sequel to his new book,
0. J. Simpson will write: "How I Couldn't Have Done It, If
I Had Done It."
Short Stuff
After throwing for 200 yards and two
touchdowns passes, plus running for two scores on
Saturday, the national media is starting to notice Florida's
Tim Tebow ... One of the hot names as Larry Coker's
replacement in Miami is former Wisconsin coach Barry
Alvarez ... The old Sports Illustrated jinx lives: No. I pick
on the cover recently, Kansas, loses to Oral Roberts; and
Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is out this week with a back
injury.
Nothing But 'Net
(With a little help from Buddy's cyberfriends)
Bumper Sticker, Sign or T-shirt
1. I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps
getting harder to find one.2. I'm not only pushing 50, I'm
kicking its butt!3. My wife and I had words, but I didn't get
to use mine.
Today's Corny Joke
Q. What is the difference between mechanical engineers
and civil engineers?
A. Mechanical engineers build weapons and civil engineers
build.targets.
And Good Morning...
... To all you remaining FSU fans who live in
Tallahassee. This might be a good week to take a
Thanksgiving vacation until Saturday is over.

American Legion News
Forty-three years ago, on November 22, 1963, President John F.
Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas. He died that day and three days later
was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. One
of the quotes from his inaugural address in 1960 was "My fellow
Americans, ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what can you
do for your country." America's Armed Forces, Army, Navy, Air Force,
Marines and Coast Guard, have done just that. These men and women
have given of their time and efforts, blood sweat and tears, and even their
lives in supporting America and America's freedoms, as well as trying to
bring those same freedoms to other nations in this world. American
fighting forces heeded the call in 1916 to aid our allies in the First World
War and again in WW II, in Korea, Vietnam, in Desert Storm and now in
Iraq and Afghanistan. The veteran has answered JFK's challenge time
after time, to carry freedom to the world.
Now is the time to ask America what you will do for our Veterans.
The VA is not properly funded to give the veteran proper care or to
maintain the proper level of care for our wounded coming home after the
battle. The short term care may be OK, but the long term care can be
lacking. And it is not the doctors, nurses or technicians at fault. They
simply do not have the personnel and equipment for the long term
treatment of veterans. It is time to begin writing letters to the elected
leadership of the Nation, asking, no, DEMANDING that our veterans get
proper treatment through proper funding of the Veterans Administration
hospitals. These veterans have "bourne the battle" for America, now let
America heal them and bring them back to health, because it is their
earned due.
Trenton American Legion Post 91 had the annual Thanksgiving
Dinner last Thursday night and the food was great! If you missed the
meeting, you missed a good time. Toys were collected for the US Marine
Corps "Toys for Tots" and food items were gathered for an area food
pantry for the coming Thanksgiving baskets. If you want to donate more
toys, contact most any of the Tri-County Marine Corps League for more
information. Remember too, that some area families may be on short
rations this week and several local food pantries are helping to get baskets
out to these families, so help the pantries when and how you can.
Thanksgiving Day has been around a long, long time. President
George Washington proclaimed November 26, 1789, to be Thanksgiving
Day, a day of prayer and public thanksgiving in gratitude for the
successful establishment of the new American democracy. Sounds like
the President meant for us to pray and to thank God for this country. I
wonder what the ACLU says about that?
Back on a serious note, do remember our Armed Forces, all around the
world, in your thoughts and prayers every day, and here at home, watch
over our Legionnaires, veterans, their widows and the families of those
called to active duty, helping out however and whenever we can.
For God and Country, Wayne Gravely American Legion Post 149

Is Big Bend Ready For Flu Season?
American Lung Association of Florida AND Maxim HealthCare
Encourage you to get your Flu Shot!


As Florida's long flu season gets underway,
the American Lung Association of Florida
(ALAF)and Maxim HealthCare reminds all
Floridians to get vaccinated. Influenza, and its
complications, kill an average 36,000
Americans and hospitalize 226,000 people in the
United States every year. The American Lung
Association has launched its "Faces of
Influenza" public awareness initiative to help
put a "face" on this illness and to encourage all
residents to make an important preventative
health decision by planning in advance to
inoculate themselves and their families against
this deadly disease..
'Two out'of three Americans should be
vaccinated for influenza every year, but yet the
immunization rates fall short each season," says
Steve Scott, president and volunteer of the
American Lung Association of Florida. "There
is an ample supply of flu vaccine available this
year so we encourage everyone to break the
habit of skipping their immunization due to
shortages and get vaccinated."
Groups especially at-risk should be
immunized for influenza. They include:
Adults and children with chronic
medical conditions like asthma, chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and
diabetes;
Adults 50 years of age or older;
Pregnant women;
Young children between the ages of six
and 59 months;


Anyone interacting with someone
especially at-risk of contracting influenza, such
as children too young to be vaccinated (under
six months old). This includes babysitters,
parents, grandparents, siblings and daycare
providers;
Health care providers.
The national "Faces of Influenza" initiative
kicked-off on September 19 in New York City
at a major press event where celebrities, public
health officials and everyday citizens shared
personal stories about their experiences with
influenza and encouraged at-risk groups and
caregivers to be vaccinated immediately. In
collaboration with this effort, the American
Lung Association has developed a new Web
site, www.facesofinfluenza.org, to provide
information about influenza and its
immunization.
To aid the Big Bend community needing flu
shots, the American Lung Association of Florida
offers the Flu Clinic Locator powered by Maxim
HealthCare which can be found at
www.lungfla.org or www.findaflushot.com or
by calling (850) 386-2065. The Flu Clinic
Locator provides a list of clinics in the area who
are administering vaccinations. It also allows the
user to sign up to receive seasonal flu news and
schedule reminders about flu season. For
information on other clinics offered by Maxim
HealthCare, please call (850) 422-1111.

Dixie Schools

AT I 7 ^ OTES Essay Winners Quade
o or etLe a Locke, Brandon Land, and
Honor Veterans Hannah Robson
By Terri Langford
Last Friday, November 10'", 2006, students and staff at
Anderson Elementary, Old Town Elementary and Ruth Rains
Middle Schools honored Veterans as a prelude to Veterans Day
l.-, ; on Saturday.
i *Meeting out by the front of the school's flagpole, Old Town
Elementary students, staff and guests gathered for the first
program of the day. Dixie County High School's JROTC
presented the colors and raised the flag at half-mask,
remembering those veterans who gave their lives fighting for the. '.'
freedom we have here in America. The Dixie County High 4: ; -".
School Marching Band played a melody of songs, including our National Anthem.
Superintendent of Schools, Dennis W. Bennett, spoke to the students about what freedom is ": 1 4...
about. How we are fortunate to live in a country where we don't go without eating, or afraid to go
out and play for fear of getting hurt. He gave credit to our veterans and the men and women who are
fighting today in Iraq and Afghanistan so that others can know what freedom is and to protect our
country.
Winners of a poster contest were announced and presented with ribbons. The three top essay
winners read their pieces, sharing their feelings about veterans; Quade Locke, Hannah Robson and
Brandon Land.
The 51" Grade sang a song about America and how we became a country.
OTES Student Government students ended the program by presenting all the veterans in OTES Poster Contest Winners
attendance with a carnation as a small token of gratitude for their sacrifices for us. (not in order) 1" Place Emily
Anderson Elementary students and staff also gathered at the flagpole. Once again the JROTC Sellers, 2nd Place Brooke Dishe
presented the colors by raising the flag to half mask and the DCHS Marching Band played their and3rdPlace Kimberley Jackso
melody of songs.
It was heartwarming to see all the tiny hands being held over their hearts as they recited the
Pledge of Allegiance. ,.
Mr. Bennett spoke again to the students about freedom and how lucky we all are to live in
America.
Winners of AES poster contest were presented with ribbons for their award winning Veterans
Day posters.
The ceremony honoring our veterans ended with the playing of "Taps", a reminder of all our a.
fallen soldiers.
Ruth Rains Middle School held their ceremony in the gym, with the JROTC presentation of the .r
colors and DCHS Band playing the National Anthem.
Principal Beverly Baumer spoke about the Unknown Soldiers and what they represent. There is .
an Unknown Solider in many of our allied countries from World War II. Baumer also explained how
Veterans' Day became a National Holiday, set aside to honor those who have fought for freedom .
everywhere.
The Band played a melody of songs that consisted of the theme song of our various branches of .:
service. As the songs were played, Veterans from the Marine Corps, Air Force, Navy, Army, Coast
Guard and National Guard stood.
Sixth graders wrote letters of appreciation to the veterans, which they presented to them.
Bill Rains, a Marine Corps Veteran, was the guest speaker. He talked about the past, present and
future of our country. Mr. Rains spoke eloquently about the Battle of Iwojima. He told of the many
sacrifices on both sides, as the losses were great during that battle for both the Japanese and the
Allied Forces.
This famous battle has been motorized with a statue that depicts an important moment in that
battle; when five Marines and a Medic raised the American Flag on the battlefield. Mr. Rains noted
that several of those men would later die as the battle continued for several weeks after they declared i.
freedom for the island.
That was the past. Mr. Rains spoke of the sacrifices that our men and women are making for us
today, in Afghanistan and Iraq. Their efforts there are to help those who wish for freedom and to
keep terrorism from our shores, such as that which occurred on September 11.. .-F1
He ended-by stated that the students will hold the key for our future freedom, and while he hopes -... -
there will not be any wars that they will have to fight in, he hopes that they will always remember to
honor those veterans from the past.
The program ended, once again, with the playing of "Taps".

Florida National
Guard Sponsors
"Operation
Family First"
St. Augustine "Operation
Family First", a new family
assistance program sponsored by
the Florida National Guard will
begin its promotional campaign
with a print advertisement in the
St. Augustine Record newspaper
that will run every Thursday this
month.
This program is designed to
serve Soldiers and their families
by providing an array of services,
some of which include; crisis
intervention, outreach and public
information, assessment and
referral, specialized education,
and counseling in areas such as
post-traumatic stress syndrome,
marital and financial instability,
domestic violence, and child
behavioral issues.
Although operational, the
program is anticipated to reach
full functionality by April 2007,
according to Isaac Williams,
chief executive officer of The
Community Trust Corporation
(ComTrust). The program will
cover the Sunshine state with
five sites covering their adjacent
counties. They are located in
Tallahassee, Jacksonville,
Oviedo, Pinellas Park, and
Homestead.
This program is an addition
to other programs that cater to
the needs of Soldiers and their
families, such as Military
OneSource. The difference is that
"Operation Family First" is
tailored to suit specifically the
needs of Florida National Guard
members and their families, and
it augments on the services
provided by other programs and
organizations, said Williams.
To bring this program to its
families, the Florida National
Guard is working in conjunction
with ComTrust, IIF Data
Solutions and the Florida
Network .of Youth and Family
Services.
"Operation Family First" was
created for all Florida
Guardsmen and women, but will
focus its services on those that
are preparing for deployment,
deployed in support of the Global
War on Terrorism, and/or
recently returned from
deployment, and their families.
For more information on this
program, contact its 24-hour toll-
free help line at 1-800-FNG-
.4447.

:Acceptance of what has
-;happened is the first
step to overcoming the
consequences of any
misfortune.
