Tri-County Area


Denied Once Again
By Briar Keathley
i! .i Although many in the tri-

Agency for Health Care
.-Administration denied last

The rejection was the second

not granted.

As stated in its 31-page
report, the agency determined
that the "need for the proposed
project is not demonstrated."
Dixie County Commissioner
Buddy Lamb thinks otherwise.

Progress Energy Names



Possible Site Of Future



Nuclear Plant

Additional Plant Could Be Located In Neighboring Levy County
By Teri Langford .
Last week Progress Energy named a possible site for a future nuclear plant in southern Levy
County, eight miles north of the company's Crystal River Energy Complex. The Florida based
company stated that the selection of a site for a potential nuclear plant was made in anticipation of
future demands for power as growth continues.
"Our commitment is to provide reliable and affordable energy to more than 1.6 million customers
every day," said Jeff Lyash, President and CEO of Progress Energy Florida. 'We expect demand for
electricity in our service territory to grow by more than 25 percent in the next decade."
The Levy County site, approximately 3,000 acres, was chosen because of its access to sufficient
quantities of water (from the Gulf) and access to the electric transmission system, as well as an overall
evaluation of environmental considerations. The site must still undergo further assessment which
could take up to a year.
Once site plans are in place the next step will be to obtain a license through the Federal Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC). It was noted that Progress Energy had informed NRC a year ago of
its plan to submit a combined construction and operating license (COL) application for a potential
'nuclear power plant. The application could be filed as soon as 2008, and if approved by the NRC,
"clearing and construction would begin as early as 2010 with the plant going online by 2016.
Cost for the plant is estimated between 2.5 and 3.5 billion, depending on the type of technology
t. hey utilize.
There are currently 105 nuclear plants operating in the United States. The last license issued by the
NRC was in the mid 1980s, almost 20 years ago. The Crystal River plant came online in 1977, giving
t. hem a 30-year history in our area.
Dixie's Commissioners have been notified of the possible site plans and understand that the new
plant would put Cross City and Horseshoe Beach within the 50 mile plume area for a catastrophic
accident. If the plant is built at the proposed site, Dixie officials will work with not only Progress
Energy, but the NRC as well on emergency notification and other safety issues.
On a positive note, it was reported that if plans for the plant go ahead, some 2,000 jobs will be
generated locally during the construction phase of the project. Once the plant is operational, an
additional 500-800 high end jobs with salaries ranging from $80,000-$90,000 yearly will need to be
filled.
1 A Progress Energy spokesman noted that the 10 years that it will take to bring the project from the
drawing table to operational, will give local school systems the time needed to provide education

State Buys Suwannee


Marina For Future

Paddling Hub
By Briar Keathley
The governor's cabinet gave final approval Tuesday to
purchase the former Angler's Resort marina in Suwannee to serve
as the southern hub of the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail. The
2.5-acre property, located adjacent to the public boat ramp, will be,
purchased for $1.9 million and will undergo an estimated $4
million renovation before opening to the public.
As part of the 170-mile paddling trail, which stretches from
White Springs to Suwannee, the state-owned southern hub will
allow paddlers to launch into the river or into the Gulf, and will
also allow paddlers to stop and get out for lodging and other
services in Suwannee. The hub will offer several amenities
including elevated camping areas, restrooms and hot showers.
Although it has not been determined how long it will take
before the hub opens, "it will be a long project," according to
Amy Thompson, Suwannee River Wilderness Trail.administrative
assistant.
Katie Flanagan, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection said after the purchase is made, which
can take anywhere from six weeks to three months, the state will
put together a unit-management plan and public workshops will
take place.
"We like the public to have input," Flanagan said, explaining
that the workshops will allow the public to help the state decide
how the hub should be managed once it opens.
When it does, it will be "a boom for the town of Suwannee,"
according to Suwannee River Wilderness Trail member Russ
McCallister.
McCallister explained that the "sleepy little fishing town" will
become more eco-friendly with the addition of the hub, increasing
eco-tourism in the area and ultimately helping the local economy
as well. McCailister and his wife Kay own Suwannee Guides and
Outfitters in Suwannee.
In addition to economical benefits, the hub, as Dixie County
Coordinator Arthur Bellot stated, will act as another access point
to the Suwannee River and the Gulf-a fading privilege as many
out-of-business marinas are replaced by condos and other private
entities.
See STATE BUYS, PG. 5A


"I would think not having a
hospital to support two counties
and 7/8 of another county
doesn't constitute as 'no need,'"
Lamb said, explaining that
Dixie and Gilchrist Counties do
not have a hospital .and Levy
County has only the 42-bed
Nature Coast Regional Hospital
in Williston.
However, one of the main
reasons behind the agency's
decision is the fact that a
hospital, Nature Coast
Regional, already exists in Levy
County.
"What AHCA is really
hanging its hat on is that there
is already a hospital in Levy,"
Lamb said. "AHCA isn't taking
into consideration that even
people from Chiefland don't go
to the Williston hospital."
The agency found that the
Tri-County Hospital would
have a negative impact. on
Nature Coast Hospital, which,
in the past five years, has had
an occupancy level below 30
percent. "This project would
likely have a negative effect on
that facility's quality and cost-
effectiveness to the point that it
could not compete," the report
stated. Those concerns were
similar to ones expressed by
Nature Coast Administrator
Alan Bird as he voiced his
opposition to the Tri-County
Hospital during a public hearing
in October.
Another reason behind the
agency's decision is the growth
rate in the three counties. The
agency determined that the
projected growth rate for the
area is slower than other areas
of the state.
According to Ameris Health
Development Consultant Frank
Schupp, who collected data for
the CON application, "the
population is growing."
Schupp said, "We
documented that by getting
letters from the cities and
counties."
He added that in Levy
County alone, there are 140
new 9-1-1 hook-ups each
month.
Both Schupp and Lamb
pointed out that 20 years ago,
AHCA granted a CON for a
hospital to be built in Fanning
Springs, when the population of
the three counties was
considerably less.
"Why in the 80s did AHCA
determine the need for (a
hospital) in Fanning," Schupp
asked. "And 20 years later they
don't."
Puzzled by the decision,
Schupp said Ameris is planning
to file an appeal.

Is Santa also taboo?
The Grinch spirit which is exemplified by the secularists who
want Christ left totally out of Christmas seems to have expanded to
include other traditional symbols of the Holiday, including the fat
guy in the red suit who manages to slide down your chimney even
if you don't have a chimney.
o Christmas came to be an occasion for celebrating for the
obvious (at least to Christians) reason that, through Jesus, God
provided a means for sinners to be forgiven of their transgressions.
(Those who consider themselves already without sin are encour-
aged to start composing their nasty letters at this point. 1 haven't
tieen getting much hate mail recently, and you'd be doing me .a
favor.) Christmas is also an occasion for giving gifts because three
scholarly individuals considered Jesus' birth to be the fulfillment of
ancient prophesies and showed their respect by traveling a great
distance to give Him expensive gifts.
The ACLU, which actually cares no more about civil liberties
than George Bush (the elder) cares about broccoli, has for years
spearheaded an effort to exclude Christ from any and all public
acknowledgement of Christmas. Filing lawsuits to exclude Nativity
senes from public property was an opening gambit, and of course
w'e understand that public schools are under extreme pressure to
lgeep "Christmas" plays altogether secular. In fact, the very use of
the word "Christmas" has come under fire, so that now some
schools have Winter vacations, rather than Christmas vacations.
:: Perhaps the most absurd length to which this enforced.
secularization has gone thus far is that found in a public school
somewhere in the "progressive" northeast, where the colors red and
green are not to be displayed together at this time of year, for fear
that someone might make the connection between Christmas and
the colors traditionally associated with the occasion. (I wonder,
,does a kid get sent home if he spills ketchup on his green shirt?)
And now, it seems, the ACLU and its minions have zeroed in
on a seasonal favorite that even some churches have considered so
secular that they objected to him. I'm talking, of course, about
Santa Claus. I suppose it has something to do with the fact that the
jolly old fellow says, "Merry Christmas," rather than, "Have a Cool
Yule, Dude." And of course, Santa is reputed to make qualitative
judgments as to which kids are good and which are bad, and either
reward them or withhold benefits--or even inflict punishment! Oh
'horrors! It is ever so politically incorrect to be thusly judgmental!
*- But I rather expect that the final straw came when one
Imcommonly perceptive (as in having an IQ in the triple digits)
4CLU scholar figured out that the reason Santa chose this season
6f the year to give gifts to children was that this Jesus kid got gifts
from three learned men of His day, and that sneaky old reprobate in
2he red suit is trying to make a connection between that Biblical
narrative and the exchange of gifts that is fashionable in our
',enlightened" generation. We just can't be celebrating something
-like that, now, can we?
Actually, we can. And we are. A lot of damage has been done,
but we can see a few positive signs as well. I am seeing those
p ersevering Salvation Army bell-ringers soliciting donations at
thore locations this year. I'm hearing "Merry Christmas" oftener,
stead of "Happy Holidays," or "Bah! Humbug!." But we're still a
Ong way down a slippery slope from where we were a mere half-
Sentury ago.
; So let's keep the ball rolling. If you know a secular/progressive,
;ACLU member or a judge who sits on the Ninth Circuit Court of
'Appeals, be sure to wish him/her a Merry Christmas.

Letter To The Editor
My husband and I are delighted to see the Ten Commandments
monument established at the courthouse. We are so delighted that
the people of Dixie County arc not "politically correct." We read
with dismay the letter from Phillip Kellerman of Gainesville,
Florida. lie talks about the monument as being in "violation of
church and state" and as being "un-American."
It would seem that, to be "politically correct," is an excuse to
be uniformed and to not think. For years, we have heard the term
"separation of church and state" as though it was a matter quoted
from our constitution. It is not. Religion is covered in Amendment
I: 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
peacefully to assemble, and to petition the Government for a
redress of grievances.
As I read this amendment, the impression I get is that religion
is being protected from governmental interference. As I read The
Anti-Federalist Papers and the Constitutional Convention Debates,
edited by Ralph Ketcham and published by New American Library
1986, I find this quote: "The right of conscience shall be held
inviolable; and neither the legislative, executive nor judicial
powers of the United States shall have authority to alter, abrogate,
or infringe any part of the constitution of the several states, which
provide for the preservation of liberty in matters of religion."
Certainly, none of us would consider our Founding Fathers to
be "un-American." When reading their writings, I find deep faith
expressed by our founders; and they were not at all confused as to
which God it was to whom they made numerous references.

There is a vast difference between the people of Dixie County
and Gainesville. In Dixie County when someone is in need, folks
pull together to have benefits and provide real help. So often,
Channel 20 News runs pieces on how folks in Gainesville express
their compassion they light candles, wear ribbons, etc. I prefer
the direct, practical approach of Dixie County folks.
Sincerely,
Kathy Lutz

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
My distress over the Ten Commandments monument at the
Dixie County courthouse continues, but my confusion is clearing
up. After reading the letters that applaud the monument, I
realize that part of the issue involves a test of tribal loyalty: that
is to say, Christians who live in Dixie County versus all others.
None saw fit to honor the American flag and form of
government.
Let me do so. I grew up in Dixie County, was quarterback
on the football team, graduated in 1955, and went on to college,
Army, and life elsewhere. I have friends and family still living
there. My parents are buried at Rock Sink Cemetery. Of the
many lessons learned as a boy, one was the great honor and
privilege of living under the flag of the United States of
America. Another was that our country is a nation of laws
administered under a Constitution that was, in those days,
regarded as almost sacred. At least, so we were taught. During
a career in Army uniform and as an Army civilian, I pledged to
defend and remain loyalty to the flag and the basic law of the
land.
In those days, too, worship was held at the church, not the
courthouse.
Perhaps they do not teach those values anymore in Dixie
County. If so, I think it is a sad day. As for me, my loyalties
have not changed. I salute only the American flag, not the
Confederate nor any other, even though two great-uncles fought
for the South. And I honor only the American Constitution.
This is what I taught my son and shall teach my grandson.
I shall always be an American first, last, and always.

Letter To The Editor
The Marble Mass, 6 tons of marble, monument, rock, or
whatever one wants to call it. Aren't we glad our forefathers had
wisdom enough to use these God-given commandments to set up
our new American law-and-orders to protect our sinful nature from
ourselves. Our whole justice and court system is thusly based.
Don't kill, steal, lie, covet, take from each other what isn't
ours, honor parents; harmonious living into another generation, no
other Gods; honor our God who gave us these laws of wholesome
living, etc. "The Ten Commandments".
Seems to me if we all tried, this way of living we wouldn't
always be having to build bigger and bigger housing facilities for
wrongful acts to protect our society.
Maybe we should try adhering to the words on the "Marble
Mass". Try it we might like it, even profit from them.
I agree a better way might have been to buy a plot of land from
county for placement, then the famous ACLU and other atheists
wouldn't have a leg! I can see them bullingg" bellowing around
and stamping the ground, might still be done, thus saving time,
money, and heartache.
P.S. We so enjoy Mrs. Carolyn's musings keep up the good
work!
Sincerely,

A True Nativity
The mystery and meaning to a true nativity as in the natural
setting of the Holy Bible, is a new life in the form of a Christ like
child, struggling into the world. The need for family and friends in
an uncommending community.
A child born with all the God given abilities to grow and learn
the true values of life's mysteries. Therefore, becoming to himself,
household and community a Saviour to the preservation of life.
In the true gift of Christmas is life a life that should be nurtured
with grace and beauty; to be lived abundantly.
To all small children, a Merry, Merry Christmas!

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
In the Thursday's edition of the Fl. Times Union newspaper
there was a small, insignificant article about a woman who was
Christmas shopping in the Orange Park Mall and was stricken by a
seizure. While she was on the ground in one of the most
humiliating moments of her life a not so honorable citizen took her
pocketbook from her side and walked out with it. Are we not in
trouble in these United States? Who are these whiners that keep
writing in saying we don't need The Ten Commandments? Most of
them don't mention God so shouldn't that ease their fears? Right
now this is a "Dixie County thing" and we've always felt Dixie
County isn't for everyone so with six highways leading out can't"- ,
they find one that will suit them? If we had a "Person's of The- '
Year Award" I hope it would go to Mr. Anderson, Mr. Landers and
the Dixie County Board of County Commissioners. Win or lose
they stood up for what was right! In all fairness to our whiners and.
critics I agree that our government should not force the Tenf -
Commandments down anyone's throat so I took a careful walk
around our monument and couldn't find the words "under penalty
of Law" anywhere. Merry Christmas everyone! -
John Broom, Old Town, FL -

Letter To The Editor :
Dear Editor,
We are residents of Dixie County and work in Dixie County
and we are very proud that the Ten Commandments are at the -
courthouse were they belong. Godly people founded our country -
with Godly principals. Sadly as believers in God our rights are
being taken away. And we are afraid that the Ten Commandments -
will be removed like they were in the state of Alabama. It is time -
now for all of God's people to voice their opinion and not let this
gift from God be taken away from his children. -
The Ten Commandments is a very beautiful law that we should -
all live by. If we did the world would be a much better place. You
don't have to believe in God to know that the Ten Commandments
stand for what is right. We are organizing a group called "Gods
Children United" in order to prevent the Ten Commandments from
being removed. We need all Christian leaders and their deacons to
contact us on this matter.
We will also be planning a meeting to discuss what we can do.
to protect the Ten Commandments if the need arises.
We will also be discussing other Christian issues and our rights
that are slowly being taken away from us. "
Please contact us at P.O. Box 2441 Cross City, FL, 32628 Attn.
Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell. You may also call us at home (352) 498-
2305. Mr. Anderson God Bless You! We are "God's Children.-,,'-'
United".

Letter To The Editor -:
Could someone please print a copy of the "new" constitution?
You know, the one where the "separation of church and state" has
replaced the first amendment and "you have the right NOT to be .--
offended" replaces the second. The original does not include-.
either. The ringing mantra of "separation of church and state" has
tied up our court systems long enough. With the aid of the -
mainstream media, many are now convinced that congress has-'_
enacted a law regarding "separation of church and state" yet they -:
aren't to concerned about prohibiting the free exercise of religion --
namely Christianity.
The Ten Commandments, Christmas Trees, Nativity scenes, 7*
The Pledge of Allegiance, and on and on it goes. It is very obvious -
that no one has ever been forced to acknowledge, let alone obey,;
the Ten Commandments. One only has to take a look at the crime -
rate, divorce rate, child abuse statistics, in this country to realize -
that is a fact. Why you could even visit a church Sunday morning
and you'll most likely find plenty of empty pews to sit on.
Be that as it may, here we go again. Somewhere, people have;-'-
erected a monument to the commandments which our laws are--.
based on (yes, I just said it), and the preacher's of tolerance are on r.-.
the march to voice their intolerance of Christians. It's no wondef-r-
our world continues to spiral downward into pure chaos. "Give us,: '
Barabbas!" continues to echo down through the ages.

Gallagher Provides Floridians

With Holiday Fire Safety Tips
TALLAHASSEE As Floridians prepare for chilly weather
and the 2006 holiday season by turning up their heaters and
setting out candles and lights, State Fire Marshal Tom Gallagher
is urging residents to keep safety in mind.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, 73
percent of home-heating deaths are attributed to space heaters.
The association also reports that real or artificial Christmas trees
were the first item in the home to ignite in an estimated average
of 310 reported U.S. home structure fires per year in 1999-2002.
These fires caused an average of 14 civilian deaths, 40 civilian
injuries, and $16.2 million in direct property damage per year.
"This time of year we see a large number of preventable
fires that occur in Florida's homes," Gallagher said. "I urge all
Floridians to be cautious, have working smoke alarms and fire
escape plans."
Gallagher encourages all Floridians to follow these simple fire
safety tips:
Make sure you have smoke detectors and make sure they
work.
Create a fire escape plan for your family and practice
carrying out the plan.
Use flashlights instead of candles if electrical power is
knocked out.
Plug electric space heaters directly into wall outlets. Do
not use extension cords.
Keep space heaters and other heat sources at least 3 feet
away from furniture, walls and drapes and never use a space
heater in a bedroom.
Before using a fireplace, make sure the chimney flue is
open so carbon monoxide gas can escape.
If your natural gas is shut off or the pilot light needs to be
re-lit. contact your local gas company. Do not attempt to turn the
gas on or light the pilot on your own.
Water Christmas trees daily.
Don't let tree lights touch needles or curtains.
Turn out lights and snuff candles before going to bed or
leaving the house.
Keep candles out of reach of children and pets and use
sturdy candleholders.
Have an operable fire extinguisher readily available.
"Education and awareness are critical to help prevent home
fires," Gallagher said. "These tips can help save lives."

HOSPITAL,
Cont. From Pg. 1A
After The tFlorida
Administrative Journal is
published on December 29,
which will include the report
on the denied CON for the Tri-
County Hospital, Ameris'
.attorney, Bill Phiefer, will file
an appeal.
Already, Schupp said,
several members in the
community have offered to
help pay for legal fees.
"I just hope we can come to
an amenable solution," Schupp
said.


Taking it even further, Lamb
said it is the state's CON
requirement system that needs
to be changed, perhaps through
legislation to circumvent the
CON process.
"When a system put in place
to protect citizens fails them so
miserably, it is time to change
the system," Lamb said.
He explained that the system
is put in place to keep hospitals
from being built in places
where they would fail, thus
placing the financial burden on
the back of the county.
However, Lamb said,
"You're not able to get a
hospital where you need it
because the system is too
strict."
He added, "I think it's a sad
day when particular areas of
the state are denied the
services critical to the citizens
-solely because we don't have
I the economic or political clout

"As we go forward in time,

"(The hub) will forever enable
access to our waters."

The Word Made

Flesh

Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast

Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say turn in your
regular Kings James version of the
Bible to the Book of Ezekiel,
Chapter 1. The face of the eagle is
showing their rising up like eagles,
looking for living prey and they
found it. Look at the scriptures in
St. Matthew 24:28, "...there will
the eagles be gathered together."
Christian people even though they
are carnal, belong to God's great
army. They are believers, but led
astray by false Christs (men)
teaching for the doctrine of Christ
the commandments of men. Isaiah
said, "But they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as
eagles, they shall run, and not be
weary; and they shall walk, and
not faint." (Isaiah 40:31)
I, the son of man, say Ezekiel
was looking into the spirit world,
and he saw the heavens opened
and he saw visions of God. He
saw the great hand of God
working here in the people of
God. They were a disobedient and
rebellious people. Their carnal
' ways kept them from the statues
' and judgments which God spake
Into their ears, that they might
learn, and do them. (Deuteronomy
5:1) When Ezekiel saw these Four
Living Creatures, he said they had
likeness of a man. Right in the
heavenly world, these creatures
had begun to carry the very
,' likeness of some kind of man.
Aren't you glad that Jesus said I
came down out of that heavenly
world? I proceeded forth and came
out from my father. I came down
- out of Heaven. "No man hath
ascended up to Heaven." (St. John
3:13) Jesus knew where He came
from and He knew where He was
going. Jesus knew He had a body
in that heavenly realm, all the way
to the time of His birth. You have
a spiritual substance in the
heavenly world. It was put in there
when your name was written in
the Lamb's Book of Life all the
way from the foundation of the
world. Some people call this
substance your guardian angel.
This is not true. The word
guardian is not used anywhere in
the Hold scriptures pertaining to
some personal angel of your own.
I, the son of man, say today
you are coming to understand why
God recognized your name all the
Sway from the foundation of the
world. Your name is to be
recognized in our day. As we
overcome the Mark of the Beast
- and his powers, we do this by
recognizing that the angel of the
Lord Jesus Christ has come into
the earth (people) and is
manifesting himself to God's own.
We must overcome the working of
the carnal mind. This carnal part is
. in everyone. The spiritual beast
(evil spirit) is losing his power
among them that are called of God
for this day. Please stay up with
me each week. Continued next
week...


Faith Baptist Church News
Today was an outstanding day at Faith. What a gorgeous
Lord's Day God provided with warm weather and bright sunshine.
Our crowd was large and our services were really special. Bro,
Jackie brought 2 good messages, the special music was unusually
good, and our crowd was large. If you missed either service, you
truly missed a blessing.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the ones of our church family
who are sick, the ones who have lost loved ones, and especially the
cold and indifferent about the welfare of our church. We pray that
you will come back for worship with us very soon. God will bless
you for it. Some of our members who have been out sick were able
to be back and we thank God for His healing touch on them. He is
the great physician.
We will have our regular services on Christmas Eve, so if you
don't have a church service at your own church that night, you are
welcome to join us here at Faith.
A special welcome goes out to our visitors. If you don't have a
church home, we invite you to join ours and if you're just passing
through, we invite you back anytime. You are always welcome at
Faith.
Remember to pray for someone less fortunate during this
holiday season, call someone who hasn't been attending, pray for
the sick and bereaved and we will be looking for you Wednesday
night for your mid-week fill-up.

New Years Eve Service -
First Baptist Church, Cross City Florida would like to invite

A Kiss From Beyond
Ok everyone take a deep ., ." .
breath and smile, I don't
know if it is unusual for me
to ask that this be read but if
you are here then you know ,
I am not usual not even
when I pass over.
I have been blessed with
so much love in my lifetime
that I am carrying it with ,
me. I wish I could make ..
things easier but I know that
right now it is not possible..
So instead I have written
this to let you know I am A
with you even now. Ralph Edgar Moon
Your heart may be
hurting right now but time will ease the pain and angel's wings
will caress you while you cry. Each time you share a memory of
me I will be there. For those that know me best will know that I
believe in angels and life after death. I do not think I am headed for
hell for they will not have me. Heaven is to full right now, so I
shall stay here. Just watching and waiting.
In time, I will return as someone new so that I may watch over
you. Until I get there, I shall send you a kiss from beyond carried
by the whispers in the wind. Smile as the winds blow for they carry
my soul. I shall always be with you.
In loving memory of Ralph Edgar Moon the beloved husband
of Ruby Moon. The adored father to: LaVaughn Locke, Margaret
Kimberlin, Christina Hall of Old Town, Florida, Gayle Reyes of
Apopka, Florida, Geraldine Barker, Ralph Moon, Joseph Moon of
Ocoee, Florida.
A beloved grandfather & great grandfather, friend to many
loved by all. A special thank you to his friend Bob Bohannon. May
the wings you have now guide you along a world of peace.
Merry Christmas!

In Loving Memory Of My Mother
Dorothy Parrott Smith December 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

I Atten The Church ofYour Choice This Week


Candlelight &

Communion
Again this year McCall's
Chapel will present its
Christmas Eve service,
"Christmas at the Chapel."
The service, followed by
Communion, will begin at 6:00
p.m. on December 24th.
We often use catch phrases
like: "He is the reason for the
Season," and yet, when the day
comes we are too busy with
opening presents and having a
meal. Often Christ is pushed to
the back on His day.
Come, spend a short time
with us to remember, and
celebrate His birth, the rest can
wait for a short time.
We are located on 7755
South SR 349, 8-miles south of
Branford, one mile north of the
Dixie County line. You can
call Pastor Taylor for
directions or to answer any
questions at 386-935-0595.

Letter From Heaven
To miy dearest family, some
things I'd like to say. But first of
all, to let you know, that I arrived
okay. I'm writing this from
Heaven. Here I dwell with God
above. Here, there's no more
tears of sadness; here is just
eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just
because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you t
every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was
through. God picked me up and
hugged me and He said, I
welcome you." Robert Locke
It's good to have you back
again, you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest
family, they'll be here later on.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And
foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you
lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight. God and I are
closest to you...in the middle of the night. When you think of my
life on earth, and all those loving years. Because you are only
human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. Remember
there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I
could tell you all that God has planned. If I were to tell you, you
wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life
on earth is over. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to
climb. But together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was
always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too. That as you give
unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help
somebody who's in sorrow and pain. Then you can say to God at
night..."My day was not in vain." And now I am contented, that
my life was worthwhile. Knowing as I passed along the way I
made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low, just lend
a hand to pick him up, as on your way to go. When you're walking
down the street and you've got Me on your mind. I'm walking in
your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going...you're coming here to Me.
Robert Locke who is survived by his loving wife, LaVaughn
Locke & kids, Robert & Sandra Locke, Maelynn, Holly, Ruby &
grandkids and surviving mother-in-law Ruby Moon & family.
Merry Christmas!
Thank You
The family of James Chavous would like to express their
heartfelt thanks to all our family and many friends who were so
kind and thoughtful during James illness and out time of
bereavement. The visits, flowers, cards, food and most of all your
prayers were greatly appreciated.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"The bastard son"
Continued from last week. I, the day of the Lord, say but there was
absolutely no forethought as to what the child was being brought into the
world for. It was still a childbborn without a purpose. There was absolutely
no thought or contemplatid before the conception of the child as to why it
was being brought into the world. The child had no "father", the word
father referring to a reason for the child being brought into existence. It
was not brought into the world for any particular certain purpose.
I, the day of the Lord, say all too many times, such a child comes to its
adult years without really knowing what it desires to do in this life. There
is no directing purpose set before it, so in many instances it just drifts into
whatever seems to come its way. So in this sense of the word a bastard
child can be born to a married or an unmarried couple. We hope we have
been able to make ourselves understood in this matter of a child being
brought into the world without a purpose. We have been speaking of
course in the purely natural realm. But now let us look at the group that we
are more concerned with.
I, the day of the Lord, say in this last group we want to consider those
children who are born for a purpose. Their birth is not in any sense
"accidental". The conception and birth are the result of planning by the
parents to bring a child into the world to accomplish a certain purpose.
There is the knowledge of a need, a work that must be done, something
that must be brought into the world to do that specific thing. Even before
the birth, the child may be given by the parents over to that work and all
efforts are made to bring that child to the very highest capabilities to
accomplish this purpose. This is a child born for a purpose and trained for
it.
I, the day of the Lord, say this we seldom see in the natural world. It
has happened a few times, and always such a child is known as a child of
destiny. Such a one stands out from the others and even their lives are
different that the lives of all others. Some even seem to know from their
early childhood that they are destined for a major part in the life of the
world. This can happen even in the natural world, perhaps with parents
that are not even religious people.
I, the day of the Lord, say true, we seldom see it, but it does happen.
These are children born for a purpose even in the flesh. Continued next
week...

American

Legion News
American Legion Post 91 is
having their Christmas Dinner
meeting tonight at 6:30 PM at the
Post home on US-129, five miles
north of Trenton. This will be a
covered dish dinner, with the Post
providing the meat entree and
everyone bringing a favorite food
item to share. Also, everyone is
asked to bring a canned or dried
food item for a local food pantry
to put in the food baskets for
Christmas. Help brighten
someone's Christmas with your
donations of food.
Remember that Legion dues
will go up five dollars in January,
so pay up early and save yourself
five dollars this year. The dues are
going up nationwide, due to higher
costs at the National level, so the
Departments are having to pass
the costs on down the line to the
individual Legion Posts. All the
Posts are already supposed to have
notified Department if their dues
are going up, and the increase will
begin in January, 2007. Save that
five dollars and renew your
membership this month. There are
only ten days left in this whole
year.
This is the time of year that
folks leave cookies and milk out
for Santa Claus, and last
week it was mentioned that the
Volunteer Firefighters could use
cold Gatorade or even cold water
after their firefighting duties are
done, or even on a quick break in
fighting a hot fire. Well, there are
some more folks that volunteer to
Help keep our community safe and
.they ,are the Sheriffs Crime
Watch. These volunteers drive the
roads throughout the county
keeping an eye on property,
directing traffic and helping the
'Sheriffs Office in many ways.
There are some that call people
each day to make sure they are all
right, some that patrol and check
on folks in outlying areas, and
these folks are volunteers, serving
the community. They might
appreciate a kind word or a cold
.drink too, when they are on duty,
watching to keep our community
safe. If you have some time and
want to serve your community,
besides joining the American
Legion, you can contact the
Sheriffs Crime Watch Unit and
see what you can do to help out.
This time of year, people send
cards and letters of cheer and good
news to family and
friends. And there are addresses
for troops overseas. But these
troops all around the world might
like cards and letters of cheer and
good news all year long.
Especially those in the hospitals,
-iecovering from wounds. I spoke
with a Navy Chief at Bethesda
'Naval Hospital in Maryland last
Friday, asking if there was an
address for Sailors and Marines in
recovery where cards and letters
could be sent. The address Chief
Wilson gave was: National Naval
.Medical Center, ATTN: Casualty
Affairs, 8901 Wisconsin Avenue,
"-Bethesda, Maryland, 20886.
Chief Wilson specifically
mentioned "DO NOT address
these cards to "ANY Sailor or
Marine", because the Post Office
will return it to you. The "rules"
have changed since the llth of
;September, 2001. Address the
'cards to ATTN: Casualty Affairs,
and the cards will be taken to the
lounges where the Sailors and
Marines are resting and
recuperating". 'This can be done
throughout the year and will be
appreciated by those in recovery.
Remember our troops all
-;around the world in your thoughts
and prayers every day, and here at
home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and the families of those called to
active duty, helping out whenever
-and wherever you can.
-. For God and Country, Wayne
K'iravely-American Legion Post

How Can The Social Security Disablity SpeastAt Integrated Famiy Services Help You?

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

Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...
Christmas at Arlington and one big, American thank-you is certainly due to Merrill Worcester and
the Worcester Wreath Co. ofHarrington, Maine. To do something like this year after year is,above
and beyond the call of duty.
These wreaths -- some 5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine.
The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well.
He's done this since 1992. What a wonderful guy.
Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to-
help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of
the state
Here's a salute to you, Merrill, and we hope you get many more. This article came from Ed

The Buddy Show
b)' Buddy fartin

Bowling for dollars begins
Post-season tidbits:
1. Best of all the bowls should be the one
played in Glendale, Ariz. between the Florida
Gators and Ohio State Buckeyes (favored by 7 1/
2 points) because of the title at stake, but right
after that, the Rose Bowl matchup of Michigan
and Southern Cal (I-point favorite) should be
quality viewing.
2. Before you start complaining about all
those college bowl games being too excessive,
consider that those 32 post-season dates gross
more than $250 million.
3. Florida's bean counters claim the UF will net just
$20,000 after expenses in the BCS Championship, but will
eventually receive a $1.9 million payout from the SEC.
4. Florida and Ohio State each received an allotment
of 16,000 tickets for the BCS Championship Game.
5. The UF set aside 2,250 students, players and band
members, and 1,500 for the official traveling party,
coaches, staff, sponsors, university guests, University
Athletic Board of Directors and the Intercollegiate Athletic
Committee, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
6. Although Gator fans snapped 12,250 tickets at
$175 plus a $5 handling charge, the school turned away
another 21,500 requests.
7. It's all about how much money you donate, not
how loyal you've been. I know one family with two
members who have been season ticket holders for over 40
years, but got shut out. Another rich booster who made a
substantial donation to Florida received 16 tickets, much to
his own surprise.
8. Somebody please tell me what Urban Meyer said
that caused New York Daily News writer Bob Raissman to
go off the Gator coach, calling him the "Dweeb of the
Week" and contending Meyer was "trashing" Michigan. Is
that what you heard?
9. In case you wondered, no no one school has ever
won the national championship in football and basketball in
the same year (which Florida could do by beating the
Buckeyes).
10. Football maniacs, on your mark, get set ... The first
of those 32 bowl games will be played Tuesday night at 8
in San Diego's Poinsettia Bowl between TCU and Northern
Illinois. Can you watch them all? Write me if you do.
(bmnartin@sun-herald.com)
Quick Jump Starts
1. Something's wrong when Florida and University of
Central Florida cancel its 2007 football date because one of
them (UCF) wants to schedule a "money game" instead of
establishing a rivalry between state schools.
2. OK, where are all you Vince Young critics who said
Houston was justified in passing on its hometown guy and
allowing the ex-Texas QB to go Tennessee?
3. The lack of talent finally caught up to Fisher DeBerry,
who retired last week after 23 years at the Air Force
Academy, but for a long, long time no college coach got
more out of his players
4. These rumors about Bret Favre coming to the Bucs ... I
put them in the category with Elvis sightings.
5. My friend Jerry Greene of the Orlando Sentinel, noting


the hot water Atl.anta coach Jim Mora got into ., l 11,
about the i .. job and remembering that his father
got in trouble for branding Mike Vick as a "coach killer" on
Fox, suggests that maybe the Moras stay off the radio.
Short Stuff


After all the talk about the
national search for a guy with a big-time
rep. Miami settled on defensive
coordinator Randy Shannon, which turns
out to be a stellar move because of his
direct pipeline into the South Florida high
school talent ... Some 13 current Gator
players graduated over the weekend,
including quarterback Chris Leak, who
was named Florida's Male Leader of the
Year and addressed his class ... Ohio State


has nine fifth-year seniors who start,
including quarterback Troy Smith.
This Just In: 'Spurriers are cheaters'
Now we know why Steve Spurrier has been so
successful all these years: It's because he and his wife have
been bending the rules. Yep, Jerri Spurrier owned up to the
NCAA violation the other day. Seems she's been sending
out personal notes to all the high school players who signed
with her husband's team (Duke, Florida, South
Carolina). "She's done it every year in the past. This year
it's a violation, I guess," Steve said. We can all rest better,
knowing that the NCAA is on the case.
Spurrier, by the way, has already pulled three of the
top 40 Florida high school recruits out of the state and
could get as many as nine of the top 100. He was among
those giving Urban Meyer a congratulatory call. "He's a
Gator and a friend," Meyer said.
Nothing-but 'Net
(with a little help from Buddy's cyberfriends)
Buddy's Believe It or Not
(But don't ask him to prove it)
1. Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they
go into space for fear they will damage their space
suits.
2. Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories
to eat a piece of celery than the celery has in it to
begin with. It's the same with apples.
3. The glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified
kosher
Church Bulletin Bloopers
--Next Thursday there will be tryouts for the
choir. They need all the help they can get.--The
Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.--
The church will host an evening of fine dining,
super entertainment, and gracious hostility.
Bumper stickers, T-shirts or signs
1. A little self irony can go a long way.
2. Handle with care. I wrinkle.
3. I'm a recovering something or other.
Today's Proverb
The things that come to those who wait will be
the things left by those who got there first.
And good morning...
... all you disgruntled Bears fans. Leave Rex Grossman
alone. Have you forgotten Jim McMahon?
And since I will be on medical leave next weekend, I
wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a happy
holiday.


An intellectual is some-
one who can listen to the
,'William Tell Overture"
without thinking of the
Lone Ranger.

SRWMD Issues Phase I Water Shortage
November 2006 Hvdroloqic Conditions Report for the District


The 1 lydrologic
Groundwater Levels Conditions Report is
November, 2006 compiled from data collected
from four water resource-
monitoring networks. The
four networks are rainfall
W (gage-adjusted radar rainfall
.dataset), groundwater levels
S..., (101 wells), lake levels (17
.l- akes), and river levels (31
." '."stations on 8 rivers).
S.-- RAINFALL
The average District-
wide radar-derived rainfall in
November was 1.47 inches.
S;--" The District average rainfall
', -,, for November for all years on
"N ... ""record is 2.65 inches.
S"... Cumulative rainfall for the
.. '. -.:\ past 12 months is 42.61
oincary .: inches, compared to the long-
Groandwate, '-'.. I "\ term average annual rainfall
Leels ' of 55.6 inches. As of'
-, .. --." November 30, the District
S-',had a rainfall deficit of 13.01
inches, resulting from below-
l u. .average rainfall all year. The
[r E .... ... a,, ;. year ending
E-., o November 30 is the
.. ., ..s .... : ':. seventh driest year since
1931. Most of the District is
still experiencing a moderate drought. Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor Counties, and coastal areas of Dixie and
Levy Counties, received higher rainfall than the rest of the District, but these areas are still abnormally dry.
GROUNDWATER
Most of the wells monitored for this report declined in November, with an average decrease of 3.5 inches,
-compared to October's average decrease of 6 inches. More than half of the monitored wells were below the 25th
percentile for November levels, and nine wells were below the 10th percentile. Eleven emergency well


construction permits have been issued by the
District since January, compared to over 300
permits issued during the drought in 2000. See
Figure 4 for a generalized representation of District
groundwater levels.
SURFACEWATER
Lakes within the District's monitoring network
decreased by an average of 1 inch during
November. No record lows were set. Current lake
levels are shown compared to historic lake data in
Table 2. River levels throughout the District remain
low. While no historic lows were reached, a new
record monthly low was observed at the
Steinhatchee River near Cross City. The Wacissa,
Aucilla, and Econfina rivers in the western part of
.,the District rose by one to three inches since
October, due to localized heavy rains in Jefferson,
Madison, and Taylor counties. November river
levels at selected monitoring stations are provided
'in Table 3. November low flows are compared to
.'ow flows of previous dry years in Table 4.

Shortage Advisory on November 11, 2006, requesting voluntary reductions in water use by all District water
users. This advisory remains in effect. The District has a variety of free water conservation information
available to the public, including a Home Water Use Survey and conservation tips, wastewater reuse, and
xeriscape publications. Water is conserved by using the minimum amount needed for specific applications and
by irrigating lawns, plants, and crops only when necessary and in the morning before 10 a.m. and in evening
hours after 4 p.m., when lower temperature and wind velocity reduce the amount of water lost to evaporation.

Hog Wild
At about 3:00 p.m. on
Sunday, December 17"', 2006
Lloyd Landrum and Carol
Ratcliff drove up to Wilmer
Phipps's property on Suwannee
River. When Carol went to open
the gate, she heard a man
screaming, "Help, help me
now!"
Lloyd immediately pulled on
the property. Carol thought
someone was drowning butm
heardthis voice coming from the .'
woods. Lloyd hopped the fence
to get to the man that was in
distress. It happened to be a man ,
named Tommy Akins who was
holding a 400 pound hog by his .e.t
back legs.
He claimed to be holding it
for at least 45 minutes. The only ..
weapon he had on him was a 2
in. Case knife that he lost, and 2
red nose pit bulls that were 9
months old. Their names were /.
Molly and Dolly. Tommy was "'
full of blood up to his elbows
and his dogs were also covered
in blood. Carol went to her Tommnny Akins & Friends
camper and gave Lloyd a
baseball bat.
Lloyd commenced to beat the hog and Carol went back to her camper to get a knife. All she could
find was a pair of scissors. She then ran through the woods to the pontoon boat to get a gun. She
couldn't find one. By the time she got back to the men, they had the hog knocked out and stuck vWith
the scissors.
We bandaged the dogs and sent them; the hog, and Tommy down the river. So thanks to a
Louisville slugger and a pair of sewing scissors, a man and two dogs lives were saved. Now tell me
there isn't a time and a reason for everything.

Local Elementary Students Join In

Breaking World Record

A- A f,'R1--


The top picture was taken at Anderson Elementary School where students gathered in the cafeteria to
participate in the Guinness World Record for the "most people reading aloud simultaneously in multiple
locations. The bottom picture was taken at Old Town Elementary in Mrs. Rains' class after their K-5 '


graders joined in the reading.
Last Wednesday, at the stroke of noon, more
than 550,000 students from around the world,
including students from Anderson Elementary
School and Old Town Elementary School,
participated in an attempt to break the Guinness
World Record for the "most people reading
aloud simultaneously in multiple locations."
'Salutations!' said the voice," said the
children out loud as they began reading a 121-
word passage from the classic children's book
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White.
The record-breaking attempt was hosted by
Walden Media, one of the producers of the film
based on the book, which opened Friday in
theaters.
"Walden Media e-mailed me and asked if we
wanted to do it," said Jan Manos, AES reading
coach.


Manos said students were excited to
participate and practiced reading the passage
quite a bit before last Wednesday. Many
teachers from AES and OTE also had their
students do Charlotte's Web crafts, drawings
and reading activities as they prepared for the
big day.
The schools will find out if the record was
broken after all participating schools send their
documentation to Walden Media by Jan. 3. That
information will then be sent to Guinness World
Records, which will have up to eight weeks to
determine if the record was broken.
The current record is held by the United
Kingdom with the reading of a William
Woodsworth poem by 155,528 students from
737 schools.

Dixie Divas News


Yt I l '

The Dixie Divas met at the home of Nina Johnson on
December 12th for our Christmas party. A wonderful lunch
was prepared by Nina and Shirley Hill, our hostesses for the
month. We exchanged gifts using the Chinese exchange game.
Fun was had by all. The next year's hostesses were planned
and a warm, wonderful evening was enjoyed by all that were
there.
Springhouse Quilter's News
The year 2006 is nearly finished. For Springhouse Quilters,
this means a change in the leadership and for 2007, Jan Litzinger
will serve as president. Other officers are Faith Stanton, Lorraine
Lipford, Mary Rawlins, and Cheryl Watson. All of these officers
were installed during the Christmas party held on December 4.
Approximately 58 guests and members attended the Christmas
Party. Our member, Sondra Crowhurst, who resides in England,
made it back just in time to attend the party. In addition, Mary
Kay Lucas brought her friend from Scotland to the party. So we
have a guild that is known in more places than just the tri-county
area.. Springhouse Quilters are always glad to share with our
quilting sisters from other areas. The party was a great chance to
get to meet these two ladies and learn about their countries.
Hostesses for the Christmas Party were Jan Litzinger, Anna
Gilliam and Betty Willms. They did a great job decorating and
planning a great party. The food was great and the fellowship
with our quilting sisters was wonderful. Everyone attending
agreed that the hostesses did a great job in putting the party
together.
Show and Tell as usual revealed that some quilters have time
to quilt even while making plans for Christmas celebrations.
Janice Roossien, who has been absent due to sickness for most of
the year, was able to attend and displayed her completed baby
quilt which will be included in the community project donation.
The memory room featured all of the past members who have
left us and for this year featured Kay Fales and Carol Stanley. We
lost these two wonderful quilters in 2006. These two quilters have
been missed.
It is dues time again and members are urged to get their dues
in timely. New members are always welcome. For information on
joining Springhouse Quilters contact Jan Litzinger, 463-3971, or
Lois Scott, 462-2207.

Health Insurance Needs of Elders), a volunteer program under the
Florida Department of Elder Affairs, will be conducting short
presentations on the changes in the 2007 Medicare Part D:

during the Annual Open Enrollment of November 15th through
December 31st. This is your opportunity to enroll or change
plans for 2007. Only those who become qualified for Medicare,
Medicaid, or Extra Help or lose their personal drug insurance or
VA drug coverage will be able to enroll in a Part D Drug Plan
during 2007. There will be limited circumstances allowed for
changing plans starting January Ist.

bottles or a list of your drugs with dosages and the quantities you

The State of Florida has gone from 44 Stand Alone Drug Plans

-to see which plans may best suit your medication needs. If you
,are on a Part D Plan in 2006, go through the 'View Your Current
;Plan' tool in the box on the right side of the screen. This allows
:you to compare your current plan in 2007 prices versus other
;plans in ascending order of your annual costs. If you live in
Florida only part of the year, be sure to look for a plan that is
National.
You may have received a notice to re-apply or you can still
apply for Extra Help through Social Security. You may be
:eligible for Extra Help in paying for the plan premium, deductible
;and drugs without penalty. You must meet the following criteria
to qualify:
;Single Income is $14,700 or less Assets total $11,500 or less

information and enrollment assistance.

4-Pets Sake

Update
As the old year fades away
from our lives and the new is
slowly gathering to take its place,
lets all be grateful for the caring
people who shared their time with
us to create beautiful memories for
the coming year.
The amount of money from
the auction was not enough to start
our pet medical program; we were
in hopes of doing $3,200, but only
brought in $2,100. Like everyone
else we have found that some
things take more time to
accomplish than others. Thanks to
all the businesses, individuals,
volunteers, and buyers who
participated in our benefit auction;
this will help to continue our spay
and neuter program.
We received an e-mail which
tells you what to do if your dog
eats glass or other small foreign
objects. There are several rescue
groups that swear by it. Always
keep on hand a box of COTTON
balls.......not "cosmetic puffs"
because they are made from man-
made fibers. Also keep a small
carton of half and half in your
freezer. If your dog eats glass
ornaments, defrost the half and
half. Pour some into a bowl and
dip some cotton balls in it and
feed them to your dog.
"DOSAGE- Dogs under 10 lbs
should eat 2 balls which you have
first torn into smaller pieces. Dogs
10-15 lbs should eat 3-5 balls and
larger should eat 5-7. You may
feed larger dogs an entire cotton
ball at once. Dogs seem to really
like these strange "treats" and eat
them readily." "HOW IT
WORKS-As the cotton works its
way through the digestive tract it
will find all the glass pieces and
wrap itself around them. Even the
teeniest shards of glass will be
caught and wrapped in cotton
fibers and the cotton will protect
the intestines from damage by the
glass. Your dog's stool will be
really weird for a few days and
you will have to be careful to
check for fresh blood or a tar-like
appearance to the stool. If either of
the latter symptoms appears you
should rush your dog to the vet for
a check up but in most cases the
dogs will be just fine.
A rescue group said they had
to use this method a few times but
they use liverwurst instead of
cream. She claims a vet treated a
litter of puppies with cotton balls
that swallowed open stables,
worked great. Pretty amazing don't
you think?
Until next time be happy, just
for..the love,, of, them. Rene.
Emenecker

What lies behind us and
what lies before us are

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Horseshoe Beach Utilities Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you
have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 12/01/06 show that-.
our system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which
includes both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standards for TTHMs and
HAA5 are 80 and 60 micrograms per liter (gg/L), respectively. The average level of TTHMs and HAA5s over the last
year was 431 utg and 358 [tg respectively.

What should I do?

Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs and pregnancy
problems. Therefore, women of childbearing age may wish to seek alternative water sources. Any
customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs can choose alternative sources of water for
ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated by an appropriate home water treatment
device, until we correct the problem. Appropriate home water treatment devices are those certified by
NSF for reducing DBPs in drinking water.

Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may
experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk':
of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may
have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water
for ingestion.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water and creates the disinfection
Byproduct.
What is being done?
The Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & The Department of Environmental
Protection to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12 months.
For more information, please contact C.M. Odom @ (352) 498-7225 or Shelia Brown @ (352) 498-5234

businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or

Chancellor Cheri Yecke
called the SunDrintenrdent's


Office to congratulate the Dixie School System on one of the
highest graduation rate increases in the state. Dixie ranked in the
top: five. She wanted to know what the district had done to
account for such a significant increase. Dixie moved its
graduation rate from 66.5% to 70.4%. It was noted that the
majority of school districts in the state have a decrease in their
graduation rates.
We responded to the Chancello:'r's~eque i b, first c.rin-mmening
that we are extremely please with the increase in our graduation
rate. We noted that there have been programs implemented in the
past few years that we feel contributed to this success. First, the
intensive remediation programs that have been put into place over
the. past two years certainly contributed to this improvement. A
second factor was the emphasis of our school level administration
to encourage students to stay in school and work out individual
success plans to achieve the rate graduation goals. We are
encouraged by these successes and will continue to explore
different strategies that will motivate students to stay in school and
complete their high school education.

We will be able to put in the

in the great room.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Suwannee Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts
Above Drinking Water Standards
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know
what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results from samples taken on September 26, 2006 show that -
our system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts DBP5), which includes Total Trihalomethanes
(TTI-IMs) and total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s). The standard for TTHM is 80 micrograms per liter and the average level of TTHM over the last year
was 378 micrograms per liter. The standard for HAA5s is 60 micrograms per liter and the average level over the last year was 89.2 micrograms per
liter.
What should do?
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver,
kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing Haloacetic Acids in excess of the MCL over many year may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBP levels: We will begin construction of the new Water Treatment Plant in January 2007. The treatment
process at the new WTP will be different than the current WTP and will dramatically reduce the level of DbiP in our drinking water. With the new
WTP our water will be within the acceptable limits specified for DBP. At this time we are using as small a concentration of treatment products as
possible and flushing the lines bimonthly to help reduce the level of DBP.
We anticipate resolving the problem within the time frame: Fourth quarter of 2007 to the first quarter of 2007.

"North Florida Medical Centers,

Inc. Board Of Directors Are
,Getting Certified
: Ce Currently the members of
the Board of Directors of North
Florida Medical Centers, Inc.
(NFMC) are participating in a
new Certificate program for
S health care governance. Our
.' own local Pat Woody, has been
a member of this Board for over
six years, and will be taking
advantage of this great
opportunity. The program is
Designed to provide a structured
path of training and skills
enhancement, in the area of not-
for-profit health center
Sagovernance. Being offered by
the National Association of
Pat Woody Community Health Centers
(NACHC), health center board
members will receive the NACHC Certificate of Health Center
Governance, upon completion of 31 contact hours of participation
in a wide variety of education programs offered.
North Florida Medical Centers, Inc., a network of local
Federally Qualified Health Centers in the Big Bend area, oversees
seven rural health centers and one dental center. NFMC currently
has centers in Wakulla, Gadsden, Taylor, Dixie, Mayo, Madison,
Franklin and Gulf counties. The Board of Directors, which has
been in existence since the merger in 1995 of five independently
funded health centers, forming what is currently known as NFMC.
Each center offers quality, affordable health care to the
residents of their community. This year a new discount drug
program was launched, offering patients of NFMC the possibility
of up to a 50% savings on their prescription drugs, if filled at their
partnering pharmacy. This has proven to be a great success. It
helps individuals with no insurance or on Medicare, to be able to
afford their medications. In some cases people have been faced
with the decision of filling their prescription or paying the light
bill.
It is the hope of the Board of Directors of North Florida
Medical Centers, Inc., that with the completion of this program,
they will be better equipped and knowledgeable of the concerns of
rural health care, there by being able to govern according to the
needs of their communities and the future of health care in
America.

Florida State Board Of Education To Honor
High-Performing Principals
TALLAHASSEE The Florida State Board of Education on Tuesday will honor middle school principalS'.
who improved their school's grade by two or more letter grades this past school year. Since 1999, when the A+-.
Plan for Education was implemented, schools have improved from only 515 schools earning an "A" or "B" to..
2,077 schools in 2006 four times the number of high-performing schools seven years ago and 234 more than-
last year (up from 1,843). Three of every four Florida schools were considered high performing in 2006.
"The leadership and dedicated efforts of these principals are worthy of our recognition and praise," said-
Education Commissioner John L. Winn. "The key component in education reform is leadership, and these
principals clearly exemplify that trait."
Princiinal tto he recoRnized hv the State Board of Education:

"These principals are role models for their peers," said Florida State Board of Education Chairman Philip
Handy. "The State Board of Education is proud of their work and intends to honor other such principals during
future board meetings."
The State Board of Education will recognize other high-performing principals at future meetings.
Solid leadership is a key component to the success of Florida's education system. In June, Governor Jeb
Bush signed into law the A++ Plan for Education to increase the rigor and relevance of Florida's middle and
high schools and better prepare students for postsecondary education and the workforce. Included in the A++
Plan for Education is the William Cecil Golden Professional Development Program for School Leaders to
provide professional development and support for principals. This collaborative network of state and national
leadership organizations will support the human-resource development needs of principals, principal leadership
teams and candidates for principal leadership positions.

Is A
Comfortable
Retirement On
Your Wish
List?
By Paul Barnes
Social Security Regional
Commissioner for the Atlanta
Region
Is a financially
comfortable retirement
something that you are hoping
to receive as a gift this holiday
season?
Too many Americans
are finding themselves in that
"wish list" category for having
the retirement they want.
According to the most recent
Retirement Confidence Survey
from the Employment Benefit
Research Institute, less than
half of workers age 45 and
older have even tried to
icalculate how much money
they will need to save for
retirement. That could leave
them at some holiday season in
the near future hoping that a
comfortable retirement is given
to them in a nicely-wrapped
package.
For most American
workers, Social Security forms
the largest part of their
financial foundation in
retirement. If you have
average earnings, your Social
Security retirement benefits
will replace about 40 percent
of your income. Most
financial advisors say you will
need 70 to 80 percent
of your work income to
maintain your pre-retirement
standard of living comfortably.
So, you will need to make up
the difference with pensions,
savings or investments.
You can find a
personalized estimate of your
Social Security benefit by
checking your Social Security
Statement, which is mailed
each year to every worker age
25 and older approximately
three months before their
birthday. Read it carefully
because it contains information
vital to your personal financial
future. It shows not only how
much you and your family
might expect to receive from
Social Security when you
retire, but also what Social
Security would provide if you
become disabled or die. To
learn more, visit
www.socialsecurity.gov/mysta
tement.
You also may want to
visit Social Security's financial
planning website at
www.socialsecurity.gov/plann
ers. You can use the
calculators there to test
different retirement ages or
different scenarios for future
earnings amounts.
