Mayo Man Dies In Early

Morning Accident
By Terri Langford
A Mayo man was fatally injured in an early morning accident
at approximately 6:15 a.m. The accident occurred on US 19, .4
miles south of CR 358. This is the third fatality in as many weeks
that has occurred in Dixie County.
According to a preliminary report filed by the Florida Highway
Patrol, Cpl. Rodney W. Howard, 55-year-old Willie George
Campbell, Sr. was traveling south on US 19 in the right lane when
he veered off the road, striking three reflective posts before his
truck became airborne. Campbell continued to travel in the ditch
area before striking the bottom of a bridge. His truck then tumbled
over several times before coming to rest on its roof.
Campbell, who was wearing his seat belt, was pronounced dead
at the scene.

Gilchrist Commission To

Adopt Resolution In

Support of Ten

Commandments On Dixie

Courthouse Steps
By John Ayers Gilchrist Journal
The Gilchrist County Commission directed their attorney to
draft a resolution in support of the Dixie County Commission
having a monument of The Ten Commandments put on the steps
of their courthouse.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr. made a motion to request
attorney John McPherson to draft a resolution in support of the
action the Dixie County Board of Commissioner took in
establishing a monument of The 10 Commandments on the steps
of the Dixie County Courthouse in Cross City. Commissioner
Kenrick Thomas gave a second to the motion before a lengthy
discussion was held.
"The Supreme Court of the United States has made a ruling
that identifies the erecting of a monument by a local government is
unconstitutional," John McPherson explained to the five member
board. He recommended to the board to not take this action.
"I think it is important for this board to support a neighboring
rural county commission in their action regarding the 10
Commandments," Commission Chairman Randy Durden
explained. "The board respects the attorney's opinion in this
matter, but makes the decision to take a stand on this issue,"
Durden added.
"We have as much right to support this as the people and
national press has to take a stand against the 10 Commandments,"
Commissioner Harrison explained.
The board voted 5-0 in support of the motion.

Dixie District School officials are offering a reward for information that will lead law enforcement to the person or persons involved
in the vandalism of the Dixie County High School and Vocational School campus. Over $10,000 worth of damage has been reported to
date; however, school officials stated that number may rise to as much as $40,000.
The incident took place this past Saturday, December 9th at approximately 3:19 a.m. The damage was discovered the following
morning and reported to Cross City Police. Chief of Police Wesley Jones stated that his men had worked all night and the following day,
gathering evidence.
Approximately 20 rooms had been destroyed by the vandals, with little being stolen. Files and cabinets were gutted while desks
were cleared onto the floor. Several fire extinguishers were taken and sprayed in classrooms and hallways. Coffee pots, microwaves
and other kitchen items were thrown to the floors, while food was splattered on walls and floors.
An acetylene tank was taken from the welding shop and used to gain access to a shed which housed a school golf cart. The cart was
driven around the campus and onto the football field before being crashed into a fence.

kAnnuaf Ciristmas Cn @3he Cpark Qicks Off Ho[fida Season


By Terri Langford
'Last Saturday, December 9, 2006, the Dixie County Chamber
of Commerce hosted its annual Christmas In The Park event.
Despite the cold temperatures, young and old alike lined the parade
route on Barber Avenue in Cross City to join in what has become
the kick-off of the holiday season.
From the Dixie County Marching Band playing a melody of
Christmas tunes, to the decorated floats and children participating
"as they dressed up in their favorite holiday attire, the sights and
sounds of the season filled the streets as the parade continued to
the Cross City Pik
At the par~the children were treated to hot dogs and soda
while they i 'ed for the much anticipated puppet show,
Ali


performed by the Cross City Puppet Gang. Rides on the popular
Matthew Express were given throughout the day and Santa Claus,
along with Miss Dixie Maddie Kelly and Miss Dixie Princess
Shamberlena Feltner, mingled throughout the crowd, meeting and
greeting. Of course Santa got'a chance to check with the children
on their Christmas wish list.
The puppet show was a big hit. Children were mesmerized by
the characters and quickly joined in when asked to. There were
smiles all around during the show as the puppets reminded us of
the "Reason for the Season.'"
After the show children lined up to receive their gift bags,
donated by a host of businesses and individuals. The packs were
filled with a soft stuffed bear, books, crayons and other surprises!


The lines quickly shifted across the park to the street where fire
engines waited to load up children for a ride around the block. This
is a favorite of the event and much anticipated. After their cruise
in the big red trucks the children received firemen hats and a candy
cane.
The Dixie County Chamber of Commerce and the host of
volunteers that made this annual celebration another successful
year, should be commended for their efforts in making sure that
every child has an opportunity to experience the spirit of
Christmas.
See you next year!

:Congress shall make no law...
The Constitution of the United States was ratified only after the
first ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, were added. The
First Amendment reads as follows:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment
of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or
abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the
right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to
*E petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Every Congress that has convened since that splendid document
:vas penned has managed to avoid making any law respecting the
establishment of religion. Beyond that, my confidence in
congressional fidelity to the First Amendment lessens perceptibly,
and don't even get me started on the Second Amendment (at least
not today). But no Congress has ever required anybody to attend a
particular church, or for that matter any church or other place ol
religious worship at all. And no Congress has ever supported one
religious group over all others through its power to levy taxes on
:te general population.
-: In this respect, at least, Congress has been consistently faithful
: to the "establishment clause," for which they should be congratu-
lated and given a raise. (On second thought, scratch the part aboul
:the raise.)
The Constitution further provides that "...no religious test shall
ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trusi
under the United States" (Article VI, paragraph 3). My point is thai
these are all that the Constitution has to say about the relationship
of government to religion and vice-versa. Any serious student o:
history knows that the only reason this subject even came up was
,that the Framers of the Constitution were familiar with the
governments of Europe and how most of these governments had a
.particular Christian denomination that received government favors
-to the exclusion of other denominations, as well as non-Christiar
religious groups. They didn't want that to happen here, and i
'hasn't, at least not as a result of any law passed by Congress.
What we do not find anywhere in the Constitution is
'.stipulation that says, in effect, "No agency of government, at an:
-level, or authority operating under its auspices (the military, public
-.schools, etc.), shall permit the acknowledgement of or otherwise
*accommodate any symbol or activity that happens to be consistent
I with the religious beliefs of the vast majority of the population."
Unfortunately, our federal courts have, in the last half-century
'decided that the First Amendment's "establishment clause" could
-be expanded to this absurd an extent. Thus, a state Supreme Cour
.:chiefjustice in Alabama was removed from office because he defied
a federal court ruling ordering him to remove a monument citing
:the Ten Commandments from state property.
; Dixie County, Florida, now faces a similar situation, a
-secular/liberal factions gather like vultures in hopes of requiring
"-the removal of a monument citing the Ten Commandments front
the county courthouse steps-and never mind that the county'
, elected commissioners approved the monument, as did the vas
majority of interested citizens, and that it was privately funded.
:; Judge Roy Moore of Alabama wouldn't cave when Big BubbE
.iht Washington told him to have his monument hauled off
Unfortunately, his public support-which had been substantial a
first-did, and so did his fellow state Supreme Court justices.
At this point, Dixie County is overwhelmingly supportive of th
Ten Commandments monument. The test will come when and if
ruling from a federal judge demands its removal.

Letter To The Editor
As I went to the Dixie County Court House last month to pay
my taxes I saw a cameraman and I wondered what was going on?
As I went up the steps I got tears in my eyes and my heart leaped
for joy for there stood a beautiful statue of the Ten
Commandments. It stands for anyone who wants to look at it is
welcome to or the ones who don't want to look have the right to
turn their head or use the other door, it's their choice.
I have been reading the letters that are coming in and I don't
understand how or why do some people feel they need to tell us
believers what we can do or can't do. We don't judge them for
their beliefs! I don't turn my head at any other symbol of another
religion because I feel if they believe that way its their choice. The
statue is "Beautiful" I am proud of Dixie County for having the
"Guts" that it took to put it there. I am very proud of the people
who purchased it, thank you so much! I stand behind you 100%.
As one person said, "Dixie County does it our way!" I've
learned that in the last 4 years I've lived here, there's a right way, a
wrong way and then there is Dixie County's way. I'm proud at this
time to be a part of this way I hope we can stand up to all the
complaints that are to come from others that have nothing else to
do. Please find a hobby or something else and leave us alone!
Thank you,

Letter To The Editor
God bless anyone who has a disabled child in the Dixie County
School System...they either don't acknowledge their disability at
all, or they force you to fight them for years to finally have your
child placed where you have been telling them he needed to be in
the first place. Then, after all the years of fighting, you finally get
your child where he needs to be and he begins to do wonderfully;
so you think to yourself, "Thank God, finally some peace, now I
can focus on some of my other children who seem to be having
some troubles of their own."
But then I find my peace is short lived. Thanks to certain
people within the Dixie County School System my child was taken
out of the program he was doing so well in and placed back in
regular school, even though this person was well aware of my
child's disability and that he can't function in regular school.
Well, they finally put him back where he needed to be but not
before he had an outburst at the regular school. An outburst that
apparently no one was prepared for which resulted in my son being
slapped and bruised up by a school official. Why were they not
prepared? They know his disability; they knew how he was going
to react in regular school (as he can not handle large crowds of
people).
This never would of happened if certain people just would have
left him where e he was at in the first place. I mean the kid has been
going to these schools since kindergarten. Sometimes I feel this
was a personal vendetta against me and my son.
Now because of this outburst my child has to go to court.
Dealing with all of this is taking valuable time away from my other
children and putting my family under a lot of strain. Disability or
not, we all love and worry about each other. When one of us hurts,
we all hurt.
Merry Christmas to the Dixie County School System...
Well I certainly have formed my opinion of the Dixie County
School System. I guess I'll be forming my opinion of our court
system as well the 150 of this month.
Sincerely,
Upset Mother Theresa Rowland

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
One day this week I happened to have business at our local
Courthouse. As I walked up the steps I couldn't help but see the
marble monument containing The Ten Commandments of our
Lord. As I admired and meditated on the privilege of having it
there I whispered a prayer of thanks to God because for many,
many years I've had MY rights stepped on, shoved aside and
ignored! I am a fourth generation American. Shamefully, I admit
that I have been one of the "silent" majority. I was brought up by
a Mother that was a "Single parent'" and raised 6 children.
Working 6 days a week and sometimes 6 1/2 days, she saw to it
that we were always in Sunday School and Church-EVERY time
the doors were open. And no, she didn't SEND us, she went with
f us!! She once told me that she could not have accomplished it
alone but God was with her every step of the way. What a legacy
she left to my brothers and sisters and myself: FAITH in a God
that cares and answers prayer! I have done my best to repeat this
kind of rearing with my own children but it hasn't been easy
because of all the places where prayer and the mention of God is
now prohibited. Ahhhh but this is their right as human beings and
Americans to pray and worship God if, when and where they
want to! My oldest brother served in the U.S. Army in Korea to
I help make that their right! My other brother served in the U.S.
t Navy. My nephew served in Viet Nam.
t When I encounter filth and vulgarity on television I turn the
P channel; if I am confronted with something in public that offends
f me, I leave. And when I encounter something that gives me
s pleasure I am thankful and believe me, it gives me great pleasure
e to walk by that monument and say with a smile "there set's one of
SMY RIGHTS". I am, after all, a citizen and taxpayer of this
s county.
S And so ending on a lighter note "As long as there are tests
t and report cards there will likely be prayer in schools".
Thank you,
a Frances Poore

c Letter To The Editor
e I thought I would voice my opinion on the TEN
t COMMANDMENTS MONUMENT from a non-christian. By
that I mean I do not believe in God. I don't know if that makes
me an atheist or an agnostic or an evolutionist or just a fool in
d some people's eyes. The point being that whatever label you
t want to put on me, I am still an American and thankful to be
d living in a country that grants me the right to choose how I
g believe and to voice my opinions about it.
I personally think that whether you believe that the Ten
g Commandments were set down by god or by man, they are for the
g most part just plain good rules to live by and anyone of good
Moral character tries to do just that.


The problem, as I see it, is that there is supposed to be a
t separation between state and church. The placement on the
courthouse steps was probably a violation of that. Government
cannot support one chosen belief and not give equal support to the
a other beliefs in a country that is as diverse as ours. Regardless of
f" what the majority feel, ALL should be considered and respected.
It I am sure another place could and should have been chosen to
place the monument where everyone could enjoy it, if they
e wished, without it becoming a political issue. I would think the
a park might even have been a better choice.

Dixie county residents, we
all need to look at the
Gainesville Sun forum. We are
made out to be inbred,
backwoods folks who know
nothing. Regardless of our
feelings of all the news on the
stuff going on we are being
portrayed as inbreeds. Yes, we
are in favor of the Ten
Commandments, yes we have
drug problems just like the rest
of the world.
So what is the big deal? Our
sheriffs department works
hard to fight the drug problem,
and we all try to help the
community. These people pick
on us because they are jealous
of what we have. Support the
community and stop the
slander.
We the people............

I have read your report -
concerning the stone
monument with the Ten
Commandments carved on it to
be placed on some public land -
I say; "Go ahead, place the
monument where you want it
to sit, and let the rest of the
world pass on by."
I have no respect and/odr
admiration for the ACLU,
neither do I admire their work.*
I have no respect for the
Atheist because I am
convinced that anyone holding
to that view is an ignorant
person who does n-ot -:
understand plain language, and .--
is a lost person as far as the;-'
Gospel is concerned. I put no-
trust or confidence in anyone's. -
wishful thinking when they -
propose to outlaw God and/or
anything relative to His
Deity/Majesty and Person.
May God bless you as you

A Mothers' Broken Heart
My house was broken into on December 4th, 2006. With.the
help of the Cross City Police Department and the Dixie County.
Sheriff's Office, someone has already been arrested and. charged
for the crime.
Among the items taken was a laptop computer. I can't stress
the importance of this laptop enough. See, I have a 20-year-old son
who has been deployed to Iraq for a year. The laptop was his and it
is the only way I can communicate with my son while he's in Iraq.,
I can't afford to buy another one or I would.
So I'm pleading with whoever has the laptop, please, please,
return it. You can bring it to the Dixie County Advocate office in
front of the Cross City Post Office or call me at (352) 542-8237.
There will be no questions asked, just please return the laptop. I
can't stress the importance of being able to communicate with your.
child in such a dangerous place as Iraq.
Thank you,
Susie Nash

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2006


Commission Highlights
Bv Terri Langiford
The regular Commission Meeting for the Dixie County Board
of County Commissioners was held last Thursday, December 7th.
While the agenda was light, there were several items of importance
brought to the attention of the Board.
The Southern Nights Saloon, owned by Michael Relchman had
applied for a zoning change that would allow him to put a package
liquor store inside his bar. The Commission turned down
Relchman, stating that it would cause traffic issues as the building
is located on US 19 in Old Town.
Relchman sued the county and had the decision overturned by
Judge Julius Collins. Collins issued a order to allow the package
store, stating that the re-zoning was within the county's Land
Development Regulations and therefore must be allowed. Judge
Collins also stated in his order that the store was going in an
existing building building and that no additional space would be added,
also, alcohol was already being sold there so Relchman's license
was in order.
The Board adhered to the order and will allow the addition of
the package store at Relchman's business.
An update on the courthouse renovations was given to the
Board. Contractors are shooting for the project to be complete by
the first of January. It was noted that the majority of the funding
for the renovations was being paid for with grants. If you haven't
been by the courthouse and stopped in to see the improvements,
you are invited to do so.
Commissioners Buddy Lamb, Marvin Hunt and Troy Johnson
attended a Florida Department of Transportation meeting on
December 5th. The Commissioners were disappointed to hear the
news that District 2, which Dixie is a part of, lost $170 million of
their $275 million budget. This shortage will push the SR 349 to
US 19 road project from 2007 to 2011.
While the news was quite a blow, the Commissioners still put
in a plea for a signal light to be placed at Shamrock. The need for a
traffic light at the intersection of CR 35 1A and US 19 has been a
priority for our Commission for many years and they have vowed
not to give up until FDOT approves the light.
Community Programs Consultant Dick Edwards reported to the
Board that while Dixie has been awarded funding for the 2006
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), those funds have
not been released. This delay in funding will put new projects
back for approximately 30-days.
Edwards also noted that Dixie County has been approved to
amend its SHIP Housing Assistance Plan to include a Down
Payment Assistance. If you have any questions regarding these
programs you can contact the Commission Office at 498-1206 and
they will direct your call.
Director/Chief of Emergency Services Chad Reed gave the
commissioners official notice that he was resigning his position
effective December 31, 2006.
The next Board of County Commission Meeting will be held
on Thursday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m. in the Commission
Room. If you wish to be on the agenda, you must call the Clerk of
Courts Office at 498-1200 by 4:00 p.m. on Friday preceding the
Board meeting.


"JUVENILES"
Continued from page 1
machine at the store. When
officers arrived at the store
they saw two while males run
from the front window and
towards the back of the store.
Officers pursued the
suspects as they ran into the
woods behind the store. It was
during their pursuit that the
officers could tell they were
juveniles. When the first
suspect was caught, the other
came out of the woods, and
gave himself up.
The boys used a baseball
bat to break the front window
out in order to gain entrance
into the store. A number of
items were stolen from the
store with an estimated value
of at least $300.00.
Both juveniles were
arrested for Burglary, Theft,
Possession of Burglary Tools
(baseball bat), Resisting Arrest
Without Violence, and
Criminal Mischief.
The young men were taken
to the Dixie County Jail and
later turned over to the
Department of Juvenile Justice
and transported to their facility
in Gainesville.

"VANDALS"
Continued from page I
"It was complete destruction," stated Executive Director of Support Services Mark Rains. Rains
noted that maintenance and custodial staff were called in on Sunday to begin clean up. Monday and
Tuesday, school staff and even students continued to put order to their school. "We plan on pressing
charges to the fullest extent of the law, which will be felony charges," Rains added. "We have to
protect taxpayers" dollars and send out a clear message that this type of crime will not be tolerated."
On Monday, school officials announced they will be offering a reward for any information that
will lead to the arrest of those persons responsible for these crimes. If you have any information, you
can contact the Cross City Police at 352-498-3507.


"COMMISSION"

given to serve on the Board.
Commissioner Lamb noted that both Hunt and Johnson had
begun their training for their Commission Certification. However,
their experience will come as they begin to tackle the everyday
challenges they will be facing as they perform their duties as
Commissioners.
Their last order of business for the day was to appoint
Commissioners to hold positions on the following Committees:
Pure Water Wilderness Commissioner Johnson; North Florida
Regional Planning Council Commissioner Lamb; Cross City
Airport Committee Commissioner Johnson; Three Rivers
Regional Library Commissioner Hays; Small County Coalition -
Commissioners Lamb and Hunt and County Coordinator Arthur
Bellot; and Aucilla Solid Waste Commissioner Valentine.
All the Commissioners agreed that together they will be able to
accomplish much for Dixie County and its citizens.

October 30, 2006 at the age of 92. Born in Austria, Mr. Beltram
lived in New York City, Rhode Island and New Jersey before

during World War II. Fred was self employed in the cutlery

New Jersey and Connecticut. Fred continued to work until the time

departments. Fred was affiliated with the Old Town Church of
Christ and the Gainesville Emmanuel Mennonite Church.
He is survived by his daughter, Ann; brothers, Ferdinand
Beltram and Henry Beltram; stepchildren, Judith Wussler, Kenneth
Wood and Thomas Wood; a number of nieces and nephews. He is

may be made to .the church of your choice or to any organization

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"The bastard son"
Continued from last week. 1, the day of the Lord, say as a result of all
this, hundreds of children are born into families which cannot in anyway
properly provide for them. They have grown up in poverty, ignorance and
crime and this environment has been the breeding place for all manner of
activities that have been to the determinate of mankind, rather than to the
betterment of it. It has brought unrest to all, and although a majority of
these children has their name on the rolls of the church denomination into
which they were born, yet it was in name only, and whatever principles
that particular denomination might have had made no impression at all
upon such children as they grow into manhood and womanhood.
I, the day of the Lord, say a fourth group of children are brought into
the world through ignorance. This group we find mostly in heathen lands
and among heathen people. Many of these children are unwanted and the
care they receive is as little as can be given to them. Just as soon as they
can be made to look out for themselves, they are forced to do just that. The
mother has become just some one to satisfy the desire of the husband, and
all her life is one of child bearing and then not knowing what she is to do
with the children after they are born. Many of these children die in early
infancy, or go through life deformed in mind or body and are a burden to
the rest of humanity. These children are undesired and uncared for, and if
this is the only life they are to know and then again through ignorance,
pass onto an eternity of hell because no one has told of what God has done
for them, they had better never have been brought into this world. In the
fifth group of children we find those who are born into this world only
because of the sexual desire of the parents, married or unmarried.
I, the day of the Lord, say many times unmarried men or young men,
not willing or able to control their desire and young women betrayed in
one way or another. Either by promises of the man in the case or by their
willingness to do whatever their companion might want to do, or simply
by their own uncontrolled desire. Bad as the states of the other groups of
children might be, these children come into an environment in which
everything is against then even at the beginning of their lives.
Continued next week.

Bro. Billy then brought a very Spiritual message from 2nd Kings
20:1. Sunday evening, our Christmas Program fulfilled all
expectations, delivering a true blessing to viewers of all ages. A
special thanks goes to Bro. Pat and Sister Katrina and all their
talented helpers for molding this spectacular Christmas program
into a reality.
We're looking forward to our NPBC Christmas Dinner, which
we'll enjoy right after the morning church service on Sunday, Dec.
17th.
We welcome all to visit with us anytime; we were glad to have
visitors again Sunday, and hope that you'll come back and bring
others with you. Our prayer list is lengthy, so be in prayer for the
people on it, as well as those on the prayer lists of other area
churches. Please keep our President and other leaders and all
members of our armed forces in your prayers. Have a good week,
and remember the "Reason for the season!" May God bless you.

In Loving Memory Of My Mother
Dorothy Parrott Smith l)ecember 31, 1938 August 20, 2006
The Rose
Between the pages of my Bible
There is a faded rose
I picked it from my mothers grave
Just a few months ago
She was gone so quickly
Not much time to say goodbye
I stayed beside her bedside
And asked my God "Oh Why?"
We sang Rock of Ages and Amazing Grace
Oh what a beautiful smile
That would come across her face
And on that day that God came down
To take my mother home
I begged and I pleaded
But I know it was selfish and so wrong
I did not want to see her suffer
Lord knows she had her share
To see the pain upon her face
Was more than I could bare
I leaned down and whispered
Mom I love you so
God has come to take you home
Its alright for you to go
She patted me so gently
With that mother gentle touch
She told me that she loved me
She loved me very much
She folded her hands together
And she bravely closed her eyes
A beautiful peace came over her
And then my mother died
Just a rose in the Bible
A treasure so dear
It's all withered and faded
Now when I see a beautiful rose
Kissed by the morning dew
I know it is a special gift
Sent to me from you
A poem written for my mother,
Michelle Cannon

The Word Made

Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast

Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say turn in your
regular King James version of the
scriptures to the Book of Ezekiel,
Chapter 1. Here we find the same

seraphims that were in Isaiah 6:1-
5. Only here (in the Book of
Ezekiel) they are not called
seraphims. Ezekiel was captive by
the River Chebar. "The word of
the Lord came expressly unto
Ezekiel... and the hand of the
Lord was upon him." Ezekiel
looked and behold, a whirlwind
came out of the north, a great
cloud, and a fire infolding itself,
and a brightness was about it, and
out of the midst thereof as the
color of amber, out of the midst of
the fire. Also out of the midst
thereof came the likeness of four
living creatures. Arnd this was their
appearance; they had the likeness
of a man. (Ezekiel 1:4-5)
I, the son of man, say notice
where Ezekiel looked. He looked
right into the Heavens. He said the
heavens were opened, and I saw
Visions of God. He saw this
whirlwind he saw something
taking place. A Fire that was In
This Whirlwind was Infolding
Itself. Brightness was about it.
Verse 5 says, also out of the midst
thereof came the likeness of Four
Living Creatures. Now, watch, we
are talking about living substance
right in Heaven itself. These four
living creatures had the likeness of
a man. Each one of these living
creatures had a face. Each one of
them had four wings, and they had
the hands of a man under their
-wings on their four sides. Their
wings were joined one to another,
they turned not when they went,
:they went everyone straight
I-forward. (Read. Ezekiel 1:5-9)
Finally, Ezekiel said, "As for the
likeness of their faces, they four
had the face of a man, and the face
of a lion, on the right side: and
they four had the face of an ox on
the left side;,they four also had the
face of an eagle." (Ezekiel 1:10)
I, the son of man, say this face
of an eagle was seen of them,
coming from inside out. Each one
had its own wings separately. The
face of a man and the face of a
lion on the right side are showing
the nature and power side of
human beings here on earth. The
face of the ox on the left side is
showing their ability to work in
the spirit. The carnal nature was
holding them back from being
able to see and hear the thing of
the spirit, but they move slowly
like the old ox hitched to a plow,
plowing up the ground (people).
Please stay up with me each week.
Continued next week.


Happiness is like a but-
terfly which, when pur-
sued, is always beyond
our grasp, but, if you will
sit down quietly, may
alight upon you.
-Nathaniel Hawthorne


Thank You
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all of our
family and many friends who have so graciously and generously
responded to our son and brother Ronnie during his diagnosis and
hospital stay a few weeks ago (Ronnie has bone marrow cancer).
To all the churches, here and many surrounding counties who
have Ronnie on their prayer list, Sheriff Hatcher and his
wonderful crew and others for the benefit dinner and raffle, to
Suwannee Lumber for the golf tournament benefit, to those of
you who have been so generous in your contributions to his
"cancer fund" and the many, many words of encouragement, we
just don't have the words to express how truly grateful we are.
Thank You!
Ronnie is in Arkansas undergoing treatment and will be there
off and on for several months to come and we ask that you
continue to pray for his recovery and cure. And to Robin, who has
been there for Ronnie since day one, we so appreciate your
steadfast support and encouragement. Thank You!
Arthur, Evelyn, Gary, Jamie and Families
Ronnie's address is: Ronnie'Pinner, Guest House Inn, Apt.

That all have the right to embrace and excise their own moral
51 values is something we have struggled for, for centuries as a nation
S and is not the objective to those carved in granite and displayed on'
the courthouse steps. Or those hanging in the judge's office.
There is no place on earth more in need of an incentive to
ded improve morals than Dixie County, but the bottom line is that it,.
wn. should not be done on public properties. Besides, if all religions
were to place monuments there it would become crowded to say
ath, the least and a hindrance to our legal system.

at The real tragedy lies in this act being done and accepted with
such complacency. If allowed to remain they will become not,.
ufn objects of ethics in goodwill but a reflection of social inadequacy. ,

I How Can The Social Security Disability Specialst At Integrated FamIly Serices Help You?

If you are denied a Social Security Disability or a SSI Claim, it is often because there was a lack of medical evidence
in support of your claim or the Administration did not consider all your impairments or the Social Security Administration failed to apply the correct legal
rules. A Social Security Disability professional can give you advice about what you need to do to prove your disability and help you gather medical
evidence. A Social Security Disability professional can request copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final
disability claim. Professionals specializing in Disability claims can request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and cannot do
because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.
Every day you wait to file is one more day until you begin receiving your money.

This week's Dixie Sighting was spotted in Carolyn Jones' yard
in Cross City. Mrs. Jones is shown in the picture above next to her
Ponderosa lemon tree. She stated that she planted the tree from
shed that she got from her friend, Lucy McKinney. The tree is
about 5-6 years old and as you can see has really begun to produce
fruit!
The Ponderosa lemon is not a true lemon although its fruit are
much like citrons and lemons. The Ponderosa tree is usually small
to medium in size, 10-25 feet high, and somewhat thorny.
The fruit is very large, 2-4 pounds, and very seedy with thick
skins. However, according to Mrs. Jones and others, the juice
makes for great pies and lemonade.
The Ponderosa lemon began as a chance seeking in the late
1800's from a United States citrus grower.
Ponderosa is sensitive to cold than true lemons and requires
some special care during cold snaps. Hope you got your lemons
picked before our first frost, Mrs. Jones!
Thanks for sharing!

roof repair for us. We are ready for the next twenty years of use.
Meg Fleming, Committee Chairperson of our annual Steinhatchee Community Projects Board, Inc. scholarship program did a great

We have had a busy year and it is not over yet. Beta Sigma Phi was busy decorating for Christmas In The Park held December 8h
and which was a great success!
We will begin plans for our 2007 Fishing Tournament in December to be held March 17th. We wish to thank Jack Bishop and Brian
Goddard who were the guiding lights in our tournament. The communities they have chosen to be their new homes have two great
volunteers.
The event we held in October 2005 which we called Riverfest, is scheduled for April 7, 2007. Our Fourth of July celebration will be
held July 4, 2007.
Due to popular demand the Board has agreed to put on our "Fiesta In The Park" again November 24, 2007. This is an event that the
Board sponsored for twelve years. We expect to also bring back the Fiesta parade to begin festivities that day.
Our local organizations and clubs are in full swing with new members always welcome.
We thank all our contributors and volunteers who make our events and project possible. Our community is blessed by their presence.

The Projects Board has been busy this past summer and fall. We installed two new signs welcoming all to Steinhatchee. Signs were
designed by AARP President, Bud Shassere who installed the mounting bases with the assistance of Dave Baker. The signs were crafted
by Sea Witch Vinyl Sign Shop of Steinhatchee and funded by the Projects Board.
Our 4'1 of July celebration was enjoyed by all. Fireworks were selected by Larry and Paula Fritcher and family. They gave us a great

Annual Powder Puf Gane

Won By Class of 2009


The Buddy Show
by Budi Martin
'The Gator Nation' Has A

New Godfather
Maybe now he'll be good enough to have
his own nickname.
How about the "New Ball Coach?"
Maybe they won't make sarcastic ,-
comments about his enigmatic spread offense
anymore or poke fun about his rah-rah, hands-on _
style of coaching.
Urban Meyer is not trying to become Knute
Rockne Jr. There is no truth to the rumor that
Florida's football coach wants to paint the 0-
Dome gold, turn mascot Albert into a leprechaun or adopt
green jerseys as the Gators' good-luck charm.
It's about time to say this: Urban Meyer has .iii.. II.,
arrived as the Godfather of "The Gator Nation." And
Jeremy Foley deserves a great deal of praise for going after,
and signing, Utah's coach of two years ago even if Foley
did get nudged by his boss, President Bernie Machen.
This just in: The guy can coach.
No matter what he did for the first 20-plus games, Meyer
just wasn't going to become The Man at Florida. Maybe
because some Gator fans thought The Man was coaching at
South Carolina. And besides, Meyer didn't have a Heisman
Trophy in his case.
Maybe because they thought his invasive style of coaching
players' personal lives was too high-schoolish. Maybe they
just thought his Champions Club was more like the Mickey
Mouse Club.
Maybe this, maybe that yada, yada, yada.
Urban Meyer is not only good enough he's better than
good enough. And I suggest Foley bump his contract in
years and dollars to ensure his longevity.
Whether he wins the national title or not, Meyer and his
staff deserve to be saluted for the magnificent work they)
did in the 2006 campaign.
How's this for a resume? 21 wins, 4 losses, a Southeastern
title and a trip to the national championship game.
It's no fun to be in the coach searching business these days.
Ask the folks at Alabama, who got all the way down to
their fourth or fifth choice and then were stood up at the
altar. The deal was apparently done with Rich Rodriguez to
become Alabama's :ighih coach since Bear Bryant, but
West Virginia wouldn't let him go.
Miami finally settled on an assistant coach, Randy
Shannon, after filtering through a stack of resumes large
enough to have papered South Beach. Very quietly,
Shannon became the first minority head coach of a Florida
school that was not predominantly black. Coincidently,
Shannon was also a true Miami guy who grew up there and
played both high school and college there.
Up in Tallahassee, they're still looking for an offensive
genius to apply as Bobby Bowden's offensive coordinator.
They whisper derisively the name of the bowl game in
which the Seminoles are going to be playing it's the
Emerald and diehard fans are trying to keep their
discontented brethren from throwing dirt on Saint Bobby.
Frankly, 'Nole fans had better not be too quick to dump
Bowden, their greatest coach ever, because there appears to
be a dearth of good coaching candidates for the college
ranks these days.
Ask Foley what it was like in 2001 when he had to settle on
a:guy like Ron Zook, whose worst sin was that he followed
S:a legend but would never be accepted after Bob Stoops and
- Mike Shanahan turned down the job.
Meyer was the hottest guy on the market in December,


2004 and has become everything Gator fans had hoped
(except not Steve Spurrier).
No one could foresee Meyer enjoying such rapid success.
In his first year, he had a number of detractors and fan
support was splintered. I remember writing a column after


his third game that Meyer was the real
deal and that I was, metaphorically
speaking, "all in on Urban Meyer."
It's not that I was psychic or had superior
insight to my colleagues; it's just that I
thought his total commitment to the
personal, athletic and academic life of his
players was refreshing. And if the UF
couldn't bring back Spurrier, my first
choice, then Meyer was the best possible


hire.
"Don't go out too far on a limb," a media
friend warned me. "He's not everything you think he is."
OK, he's not a Saint, or Pope Urban. He's got I.
Maybe Meyer shouldn't have deceived the media about
injured players as he did in 2005. Maybe he shouldn't have
publicly criticized his players, or excoriated his tailbacks.
Maybe he shouldn't have ripped the BCS system.
Yet when Spurrier did some of the same things, he was
applauded. Nobody publicly flogged his players and
assistant coaches like The 01' Ball coach, or poked more
fun at his opponents, or spoke out against what he
perceived as injustices.
"Yeah, but when Spunrrier did it, he at least took his share of
the blame and didn't scapegoat his players," said another
media friend.
Frankly, I think Meyer had every right to rip the BCS and
call out some of the national media. He was on the verge of
getting jobbed by some of the cockamamie pollsters who
were being brainwashed by the Bristol Cartel. The ESPN
pundits kept docking Florida for the lack of something they
called "Style Points," whatever that is.
Meyer spoke out because the SEC was being disrespected
and the Florida Gators were being excluded as a potential
opponent for Ohio State by some of the network "experts."
I'd go as far as to say it appeared that ESPN was openly
campaigning for teams other than Florida.
You want proof? Several weeks ago, ESPN's web site
posted a question asking for fans to vote for the team which
should be chosen to play the Buckeyes, "Southern Cal or
Michigan?" No Florida.
It was Gary Danielson, CBS analyst and partner of
Verne Lundquist, who saw the poll and reportedly informed
the University of Florida sports information department,
which subsequently called ESPN. The Gators were then
added.
Florida edged out Michigan for the right to play for a
national championship. If Meyer had not spoken out, I
question whether the Gators would have won in the polls.
Michigan coach Lloyd Can- called it "campaigning."
Well, maybe.
Isn't that what coaches are supposed to do for their teams?
Isn't speaking out against what you perceive to be an
injustice the American way? Since when is the University
of Florida coach a goober for doing that? And isn't that
exactly what the Boys from Bristol were doing?
Clearly. Urban Meyer is being forced to earn every
morsel of resp, ct, just as his offense had to earn every yard
on those long' rives against Tennessee and Florida State on
the road to ma.', a second half comeback, win and go 12-1.
And earn that comeback in the second half against
Arkansas to clinch ine SEC.
Of course, Florida has zero chance to beat Ohio State
and might as well not even show up in Glendale, Ariz. I
know that for sure because the Boys in Bristol told me so.


Sophomore Class


Junior Class


The DCHS Sophomore Class walked away with the Championship trophy last Friday night as
champs of the Annual Powder Puff game. In the first game of the night, the Junior Class defeated the
Freshman class 12-6. Jaime VanAernam scored both touchdowns for the 11th graders. In the next
contest it was the Senior Class versus the Sophomores were tied with the Senior Class, 6-6, at the end
of regulation time and had to go to a tiebreaker. The 10th graders scored first and were able to hold the
Seniors and keep them from scoring again.
In the third game of the night, and a very cold night it was, the Senior Class defeated the Freshmen
class 12-6. Freshman quarterback, Ariel Fallender, completed a pass to Charla Fowler for the only
score or the 9th graders. Erica Sheppard scored by of the touchdowns for the Senior class.
In the Championship game the Juniors and Sophomores squared off and the 10th graders managed
to control the ball most of the quarter and scored on a touchdown pass to Jenny Hodge making the
score 6-0. The Juniors could not put the ball into the end zone before the clock ran out, giving the
Sophomores the win.
Congratulations to all the participants and especially to the wonderful cheerleaders for all the
squads.

Boating Advisory Council Acts
On Nonmotorized Vessel
Registration And Education
Requirements
Key Largo The Boating Advisory Council (BAC) voted
today against taking a recommendation to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) requiring the
registration of nonmotorized vessels. The BAC considered the
work of the Nonmotorized Vessel Subcommittee and public
comment, and voted 9-5 against registering nonmotorized vessels.
As this action is not going before the FWC, there are no plans
to pursue this issue further at this time.
In other action, the BAC reinforced its position supporting
the importance of appropriate boating education for all boater
operators regardless of vessel type. As a result, the BAC
requested more detail on mandatory boating education for all
boaters.;
At the next BAC meeting in Tallahassee in April, FWC staff
will report on possible nonmotorized,',essel boating education
options based on the varying types of.ponmotorized vessels. The
types of nonmotorized vessels include, but are not limited, to any
of a variety of rowboats, nonmotorized sailboats and paddlecraft,
and exclude watertoys, such as air mattresses or inner tubes, to
name a few.
Current boater education laws pertain only to people who
operate motorized vessels those 21 years and younger are
required to pass an approved boating safety course to operate a
vessel with a 10 horsepower engine or greater. As a result, FWC
staff will look at the boating laws now in place and possible
enhancements that would incorporate nonmotorized vessel safety
education requirements. In addition, the FWC will assess options
for providing better education information to liveries that rent or
lease nonmotorized vessels.

FWC Law Enforcement Unveils
Woods & Water Strategy
Col. Julie Jones, director of law enforcement for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), revealed her
division's five-year Strategic Plan to the commissioners and the
public Wednesday. It will be a driving force for the direction the
division takes in the future.
"We are Florida's woods and water guardians," Jones said.
"Division officers are the sole law enforcement presence in many
of the most remote parts of the state. People in these areas rely on
our officers to protect life and property. The presence of FWC
officers in these areas, along with their unique training and
equipment makes them the first responders."
The plan includes the primary mission -- protecting Florida's
natural resources and people through proactive and responsive law
enforcement -- and defines the goals, strategies, values and guiding
principles of the division. FWC is the largest conservation law
enforcement agency in the nation.
The division's motto is "patrol, protect, preserve." Success is
measured by compliance, not the number of arrests.
Four core missions outline the responsibilities of FWC officers,
which in addition to resource protection, encompass boating and
waterways safety, maritime and wilderness law enforcement
patrol, as well as mutual aid and emergency response. Officers
have responded to numerous natural disasters, including eight
hurricanes.
"Due to the agency's ability to enforce all state laws, its unique
capabilities and specialized training and equipment, and our track
record in responding to natural disasters and critical incidents,
FWC is recognized as an invaluable and necessary mutual aid
partner in Florida's emergency response network," Jones said.

Fish and Wildlife Conservation

Bowl Host Committee and is

chairman in 2001. He has

appreciate that.

Dear Citizens of Dixie County,
The placement of the Ten Commandments on the county
courthouse steps and recent letters to the editor in the Dixie
County Advocate have stirred my thoughts and given me a
desire to share them with you.
I see this controversy as a wake up call to the residents of
Dixie County. The strong Christian views and beliefs of many
residents, rich and poor, are about to be tested by the outside
world. Since moving here in 1997, I have had a comfortable
place to live. The people have reminded me that God needs to be
first in my life and family is as important as jobs and money.
With the influx of new residents moving into the Tri-County
area it feels like d6ej vu. A similar thing happened in my old
home town. People moved in with different values, beliefs and
attitudes. The entire small town atmosphere changed and so did
the people who lived there their whole lives.
I think the difference between my old home town and Dixie
County is the strong Christian values and beliefs instilled in its'
people. Although Christian values and beliefs are still the center
of most families in the area, I have noticed decreased enthusiasm
and boldness for the Lord that once existed. Life changes are to
be expected, but we must remember to maintain God first in our
lives. Beware; the test is coming from God and outsiders. Both
will be observing to see how we react to those who believe
differently. Will we continue to express our beliefs or will we
compromise our testimonies in fear of lawsuits or offending
others?
Mr. Anderson has not only challenged the commissioners
but every Christian in Dixie County. God gave the Ten
Commandments to the Jews in the wilderness. In short, they
became their laws and are still a part of the Jewish religion as
well as Christianity's. These laws were given to unbelievers but
to believers to that they may be able to judge themselves.
In a sermon, a minister once compared the Ten
Commandments to a doctor who diagnosed a man's disease. But
when the patient asked him if he could cure him, the doctor told
him he needed to go to a specialist. The Ten Commandments is
like the doctor. It shows us what is wrong. Jesus is like the
specialist. He has the cure for our problems, but we must be
willing to act upon the treatment. My pastor says there is an old
Jewish saying, "Where there is judgment below there is no need
for judgment above." I don't know if this is correct, but it
certainly has a ring of truth.
I wonder how many Christians will drive past this
monument on the courthouse steps and ignore the message
because they feel it is there for unbelievers. I think it could be a
supporting witness to the world if all the professing Christians
(including churches) in Dixie County would display the Ten
Commandments on their own properties and write them on.the
tablets of their hearts.
God wants us to share with others what he has taught us
through the Bible and our personal relationships with the Son,
Jesus. We are instructed to be a light to the world. This can be
done in two ways. The first way is through the words we speak
and our testimonies. The second is the way we live our lives.
For those of you who know me and the faults and failures I
have in my life that are not a good witness for my savior, Jesus,
please, forgive me. No matter how ungodly I may be at times,
the following statements will always be true because they are
taught to us through the Bible. God never lies. His words are
true, and He is bound by them.
1. God created you.
2. All men have sinned against God.
3. God sent his Son, Jesus, to die for our sins so we could
live with Him forever.
4. Jesus is coming again soon.
I have paid for this space with my own money because this
letter is long. I also did not want the Dixie County Advocate
to be accused of showing favoritism. I am not monetarily
rich, but I am willing to pay for something I feel so strongly
about and exercise my constitutional rights of free speech.

Bud Brewer Surprised By

Mayor, Council & People Of

Horseshoe Beach
To a standing ovation on December 7"', 2006 Horseshoe
honored one of our wonderful residents. Bud Brewer has closed his
realty business.
Bud first came to Florida in 1952 while serving with the US
Navy and immediately decided to make his home in the state. He
came to Horseshoe Beach in February of 1977 and fell in love with
the people and the peace and quiet.
Bud through the years has served on the town council, raised
over $50,000.00 for gifts and Christmas presents for the children,
served as Tri-County President of the senior citizens, vice-
president of the Chamber of Commerce, and Civil Defense Co-
Coordinator. He worked for two months with no pay obtaining
private releases from property owners for the dredging company.
Many graduating seniors received generous donations by Bud.
This is only a small portion of contributions. To quote Mayor
Katherine Hutchinson, "Bud was the only Yankee allowed to live
in town" at one time.
Bud has a collection of Highwayman paintings. He has
displayed them in the City Hall and offices for all to enjoy.
Bud you may have retired from business but never from
Horseshoe Beach.
We love you, and thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
The Town of Horseshoe Beach

Dixie Defenders, Camp 2086, Sons of Confederate Veterans, held its regular monthly meeting:
Tuesday Nov. 28 at the Carriage Inn Restaurant in Cross City. A guest speaker, and fellow SCV,
Lucki Jewell McDonald, spoke briefly about his recent tour of duty in Iraq.
"I enjoyed it over there," McDonald said. "I was never in fear for my life."
McDonald, 36, spent eight months at Abu Ghraib Prison and four months at Camp Bucca Prisofin
His various job titles consisted of Tower Guard, Administrative Clerk and Team Chief for convoy
vehicles.
McDonald described Iraq as a beautiful place that he hopes will one day be a vacation destination
spot.
He also pointed out that "everything the media has painted is a lie," and "they only want to focus:
on the negative and not the truth."
McDonald explained that detainees were treated with respect and that crime in America is much
worse than in Iraq. He also added that the Iraqi soldiers he met actually wanted the Americani
soldiers to be there.
"Iraqi soldiers cried the day we left because they didn't want us to leave," he said. "We made an
impact on them. I left them knowing there's better people in America."
Now that he is back home, McDonald trains other soldiers, teaching them to leave a good-
impression of America and Americans.
McDonald said, "I want them to know who we are, by the standards soldiers set."

Left to right are Will Sumner and Savanna Beckham who were
recognized as being top sellers in their Thanksgiving Basket fundraiser.

The Dixie Wranglers 4'H'ers recently held a drawing for five
Thanksgiving Baskets (each worth $25). The kids did a great job at
selling tickets for this fundraiser. The baskets were delivered to the
winners the day before Thanksgiving.
Congratulation go to Savanna Beckham for selling the most
tickets for which she won a $25 gift certificate to Creekside Farm
Supply. Will Sumner followed right behind Savanna, selling only
2 tickets less than she did. Will won a brand new green and white
4-H umbrella for the 4-H Mall. Congratulations to both of you!
Also, a big thank you goes to Creekside Farm Supply for
donating the gift certificate for our winner, to Lolly Sumner for
helping put the baskets together, and to everyone who purchased
tickets from these kids!
At our regular club meeting on December 5th, the kids made
homemade Christmas cards for some of our U.S. Troops. The
cards have been shipped to Iraq t a unit of soldiers from Florida.
Hopefully, these adorable Christmas cards will bring a smile to
their faces!

Old Town Artist Illustrates Second Book
Autographed copy to be donated to the library
Old Town artist. Debra Moore, has recently illustrated another children's book.
"The subject matter struck my heart so deeply I virtually donated my time and talent, making
very little money from the project," Moore .. '
said. .
Written by a 6-year old prodigy named
Jaedyn Moore (no relation to Debra), Last
One Left Saving Endangered Animals .'
reaches into your soul.
As adults our lives tend to be ones full of
the busyness of day to day living. We travel V
through our fast-paced routines as if robots,
watching the news and attempting to make
sense of all the upheaval in our world. We just
don't seem able to figure out how everything
has become so upside-down and yet sit back
as observers while others, either vocally or
quietly, do whatever might help to make it all
better.
Ah yes...complacency, the feeling of
contented self-satisfaction, especially when
unaware of impending trouble. Even more
unsettling, being complacent when you are
aware of impending trouble!
Are you guilty of this feeling? Are you an
observer or a doer? Are you ready to help
make a difference about something so .
important that if we don't start right now r
things could become completely out of
control?
Little Jaedyn Moore of Spring, Texas, Debra and Jaedyn become awe-struck by Maggie,
,certainly is. the ambassador wolf from Mission: Wolf.
Jaedyn has found her passion...her
mission in life and has set out to make a difference in a huge way.
"Don't be fooled by this amazing young lady. Her intensity is real, her passion strong, and her
mission unfaltering. Given a moment she will reach deep down and grab hold of your heart, rousing
something profound within you," said Moore.
Her mission is straightforward; something we've heard about for decades; the animals of our
planet are in tremendous danger, some on the verge of extinction, and we have to do something. As
stewards of the earth we must take a stand and with the help of Debra's artwork Jaedyn has done just
:that.
After learning of the plight of endangered species something stirred deep within Jaedyn's soul.
eSf e then set out to change what wasn't working, the eco-balance of our world; to do anything she
possibly could.
SIf the adults aren't able to make it right then the only way is with the children, the adults of the
1iHture. Jaedyn realized she needed to rally every child she could to help her in her cause.
:- The only way this little Miss felt she could let the world know about the plight of endangered
animals was to write a book; to put her passion for animals into words. Her mother, Emmie,
:recognized her daughter's intensity and felt compelled to seek out a publisher in order for the young
at heart to join Jaedyn in fulfilling her dream.
: After many hours of research Jaedyn's mother contacted a pre-press company in Arizona. They
(Those illustrator and fellow animal lover, Debra Moore, a member of the Society of Children's Book
'Writers & Illustrators, to assist in the production of Jaedyn's passion, a book entitled Last One Left -
:Saving Endangered Animals.
Suddenly the afternoon activities of a now 7-year old girl became a mission of major
,proportions. Unwilling to take "no" for an answer, doors began to open to new possibilities as
-assion and compassion came together within the heart of a child who wants to save the world...one
.animal at a time.
: Her entire family believes in her. Her friends believe in her. Her artist and publisher believe in
her. Watching her dream unfold has been a joy for everyone involved.
g I d Jaedyn's book debuted in November while she, her mother,
grandmother, and Debra attended the Carnivores 2006 conference
in St. Petersburg, Florida. The event was sponsored by the
Defenders of Wildlife. While there Debra and Jaedyn participated
in a book signing and was it ever a hit!
"We sold over 100 copies and the attendees were amazed to
., be witness to such a precious young lady oozing -\vith such
'. passion for the cause they have worked so hard for during their
lifetime," said Moore.
c t ty a 're The youngest participant at the conference, in every instance
mnin t the response to her approach was "You wrote this book?" "Yes I
,. i did and this is my artist," Jaedyn replied, pointing at Debra in the
process.
[ r' Each adult seemed stunned by Jaedyn's fervor, unable to not
generate an enormous smile as they thumbed through and then
purchased an autographed copy.
7-year old Jaedyn Moore 's During the conference Debra and Jaedyn became awe-struck
book "Last One Left". by the beauty and plight of wolves after meeting Maggie, the
ambassador wolf from Mission: Wolf in Colorado.
"The fact that they are in such trouble, are so misunderstood, and yet so very necessary in order
to help maintain the natural balance of things was a true learning experience for us...Little Red
Riding Hood lied," said Debra with a smile.
Jaedyn then decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her book to the Seacrest
Wolf Preserve, a 400-acre preserve located in Chipley, Florida.
Jaedyn's family has been approached regarding developing the book into an educational
- outreach program and they are working towards having it translated into Spanish so Jaedyn's
--mission can reach more than just American-speaking children.
"It's not her writing but her heart that stands out," her mother says. "She has a passion that stirs
young and old into action for animals and for the earth."
Jaedyn's book is available on-line at www.BooksByJaedyn.com.
