Home In Fire Christmas Eve


Firefighters worked to save a Cross City home that was engulfed in flames on Christmas Eve.
-By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Cross City Fire Department was dispatched to a house fire off the Frank Bennett Road late
Christmas Eve, approximately 11:00 p.m. While the family escaped unharmed, the home was
destroyed by the blaze.

in the house when the fire broke out in the family room area around the fireplace which had been
burning an artificial log. Their Christmas tree was also near the fireplace.

It was noted the home was owned by Michael Cannon.
The Corbins were able to save a few small items such as photo albums that housed precious
memories.

Letter To The Editor
I applaud the bold move of the six ton polished granite in front
of the Dixie County Court House that elevates the consciousness o01
faith towards the Deity of the D)ivine Hlebrew Creator (lixodus
3:18.) who wrote his spiritual message on Mount Sinai and
proceeded to give Moses two tablets of the Testimony, (Exodus
24:12;) tablets of stone written on by the Hebrew Creator's own
finger. (Exodus 31:18.)
The titles Lord and God gives reverence to the Hebrew Creator
(Psalms 136:203;) and Moses was the first Prophet to identify the
Creator's personal name, Yah-Vah (See: Exodus 6:2-3;) before
his name was expunged from the Archaic Hebrew Holy Scriptures
by the superstitious Babylonian Jewish Rabbis who became a
sectarian denomination of the Aaronic Priesthood while they
were in exile in Babylon for seventy years in 707 B.C.E. While in
Babylon, these Jewish Rabbis established the Babylonian
Talmund for the new religion of Judaism.
The Jewish Messiah, Immanuel (See: Isaiah 7:14; Matthew
1"23.) Yah-Shua (Hebrew name meaning: The Savior, see 1John
4:14, John 3:17.) came in the name of his heavenly Father. (Yah-
Vah Shua See John 5:43.) Immanuel Yah-Shua also made His
Heavenly Father's name known to his Messianic Apostles and
their followers, (Who are identified as a remnant, see: Romans
9:27; 11:5;) saying: Righteous Father, the world has not known
you: (Due to the Babylonian Jewish Rabbis' superstition, not to
use His name in vain.) but I have known you, and these (The
remnant.) have known that you'sent me and I have declared unto
them your name: (Yah-Vah EI'Shad-Dai.) and (They) will declare
it (John 17:6, 25-26;) to the gentile nations according to his
choosing through the Messianic Congregation of the First Century
A.D.
The six ton granite does not have the Creator's Personal Name
upon it. "They shall not take the Name of the Lord thy God (See:
Exodus 6:3; Psalms 83:18; Isaiah 12:2; 26:4.) in vain." (Exodus
20:7.) It does not say to take the titles of the Lord thy God in vain,
it said: "They shall not take the Name of the Lord thy God (Yah-
Vah) in vain." Like the Babylonian Jewish Rabbis, all of
Christianity followed the same pattern to hide the personal name of
the Creator God, Yah-Vah El'Shad-Dai. Those not using the
Creator's personal name are the ones who belong to the seven
heads or the world-wide kingdom empires of church and state
religions. (See: Revelation 12:3; 13:1; 17:9-10)
If you don't know the Name you won't know the message or
the Messenger. The First Century messenger, Immanuel Yah-Shua
is the Mediator between the Creator God, Yah-Vah EI'Shad-Dai
and men. (See: ITimothy 2:5; Hebrew 8:6: 9:15; 12:24.)
Today, the Gospel Truth has been given to you without bias or
prejudice according to the Archaic Hebrew Holy Scriptures. There
is another truth concerning the six ton granite; if the Name is not
on it, Uncle Sam will remove it. or lose all Federal Grants
earmarked for Dixie County.

Remembering Gerald Ford
Gerald R. Ford, our 38th President, left us last week at the age
of 93, having lived longer on this earth than any other US
president. He had been in excellent health until well past his 90th
birthday, but he later developed a heart condition and was battling
pneumonia at the time of his death.
Ford assumed the presidency on August 9th, 1974, after
Richard Nixon resigned in the wake of the Watergate scandal. lHe
had been appointed vice-president a few months earlier, after Spiro
Agnew resigned over a scandal of his own-a significant aspect of
which consisted of making remarks disrespectful of the liberal
media, a sin for which Nixon was also punished.
Ford then pardoned Nixon for offenses that columnist William
F. Buckley, Jr., trivialized as "chicken-thievery." Like a lot of other
people at the time, I felt that Watergate was essentially a media-
driven scandal that would have died on the vine, had Nixon's name
been Kennedy. Nonetheless, it is widely felt that the Nixon pardon
cost Ford the 1976 election.
Gerald Ford served as a naval officer in World War II, after
which he entered politics from his home town of Grand Rapids,
Michigan, where had had been a football star at South High
School. Upon graduation, he went on to play for the University of
Michigan, where he led the team to victories over other Big Ten
Conference teams like Ohio State. Upon graduation, he turned
down pro football offers from the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay
Packers to attend Yale University, where he earned a law degree.
An aside on Ford's decision to turn down a career in pro
football: He would have started at something like $200.00 a game,
or $2,000.00 for a ten game season. Even during the Great
Depression, that didn't compare to the phenomenal salaries NFL
players get today. In fact, most players had off-season jobs at
anything from selling cars to professional wrestling.
Ford served in the House of Representatives from 1948 (which
was generally not a good year for Republican candidates) until his
appointment to the vice-presidency, and was chosen as House
Minority Leader in 1963.
By now, most of us have heard that Gerald Ford opposed going
to war in Iraq. However, "I don't think I'd have gone to war...."
sounds like a respectful dissenting opinion, as opposed to the
vitriolic bloviating we hear from the likes of Congressman John
Murtha.
Ford actually earned the admiration of both parties by not going
about the country-and abroad-voicing criticisms of his
successors to the Oval Office. Ford understood that this was a long-
standing protocol among former presidents, as indeed it has been
throughout our nation's history, at least for the most part.
Ford did not criticize his immediate successor, Jimmy Carter,
despite the fact that the Carter presidency was a disaster in terms of
concurrent inflation and recession on the home front and a foreign
policy that took no effective action against an act of war by Iran,
when the American embassy in that country was overrun by
"students"-with the ruling Ayatollah Khomeini's approval-in
1979.
Contrast this with Carter's own geriatric re-emergence as a
critic of the current administration. It's not that Bush should be
above criticism, the problem is with ex-presidents sounding like the
Dixie Chicks when they get on the microphones and in front of the
cameras while touring foreign countries.
The big difference is, Gerald Ford had class. Both of our major
political parties could use a few more like him.


CORRECTION
In the December 28, 2006 issue of the Advocate, on page 7-A
in the story headlined, "Ruth Rains Students Voice Their Views
On Ten Commandments Issue," the essay was reported to have
been written by Ariel Neiss, when in fact, it was written by Rachel
Griffis. We are sorry of this error.

Dear Editor:
To understand the difference
between Earth's previous
climate changes and the
changes caused by vMan's C02

The Weather Makers.
You would see how political
contributions have muzzled
our own scientists in order to
maintain fat corporate profits.
Plant and animal extinctions
will result from the last 7 years
of fiddling. Many new coal

into operation to maintain
another 60 years profits before
even the dimmest among us
realize the costs to our world
and species.
Business as usual is no
longer a moral option.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
1 beg forgiveness. I have been struggling to understand why the
Ten Commandments marble was placed at the courthouse. I've
read all of the letters in the Advocate and written two of them,
myself. What escapes me is why an essentially religious document
is enshrined in this particular fashion at the seat of government, as
though declaring, "We base justice on God's rules."
Granted, the monument ought to be "no big deal," as described
recently in an excellent middle school essay, but obviously it was
placed where it sits to make a statement. In short order, a
predictable cry was raised by a few about "separation of church:
and state." The response of county lawmakers and most county
residents has been, "Not here." In advising commissioners to go
ahead in spite of the danger of a lawsuit, the Commission's lawyer
may have broken an oath to uphold the constitution. You don't do
that casually. So, all involved knew the stakes when they acted.-.:
That's why it's a "big deal."
And the monument is no small thing, either. It isn't a wall--'
plaque nor a modest inscription on the wall of commission
chambers, which probably no one would have objected to. Nope.
This is a six ton behemoth with a misspelled word that can't be
missed by any but the blind. If you want something to be noticed,:'
make it big. Once again, the commission intended to make a loud
bang, damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead! It's a "big deal"
because they made it so.
Now that it's done, any elected official who speaks against it is a
sitting duck for ballot box revenge. None dare call it back. The
die are cast, so to speak. The commissioners have put themselves
and even future commission candidates in a hard place where the
only alternative is to lose their job. So, once again, it is a "big
deal."
So far as I know, no official has issued a public statement
explaining their action. I think I understand. Once "on the.
record," there's less room to wiggle. But what message is being-
sent? Dixie County honors the Ten Commandments? Dixie
County loves God? In Dixie County, government follows the
Bible? Possibly all of these.
I suspect, however, that appearance is greater than substance.
Surely none would advocate overturning the rule of law in favor of"
Bible justice, such as the Taliban attempted in Afghanistan.
History is clear: that way lies disaster: In spite of disagreements
over Supreme Court rulings, it is the dispassionate rule of law, not
it's Christian heritage, that makes America the shining hope for
peoples around the world. Their experience is different. In many
countries, religion, tradition, status at birth, or local custom
routinely override the law. Not here.
Even though they were passionate Christians of various
denominations, the Founders had had enough of the rule of
privilege over law. Equality cannot thrive where any special
consideration, not exempting religion, trumps the Constitution.
Either all Americans stand before the same bar ofjustice, or we are
not one people. This is what has made us different from every
other nation.

That difference is why the Ten Commandments monument
sitting at the courthouse is a "big deal." It suggests that we are not
different from other nations, that we might even tip the scales of
justice for religious purposes. It suggests that the oldest
constitutional republic in the world is having second thoughts. It
suggests that the Bible is favored in law over the Constitution.
Frankly, I don't think the commissioners thought it through
before they voted. I think they made a mistake, pushed by a
respected local citizen to honor their faith in a very public way.
with a huge marble monument. And now they can't back down
unless forced by the Courts. Given the mess in Iraq, six tons of
marble in Dixie County isn't exactly top priority, so the monument
is likely to be there a while, no matter what it suggests.
Those who see it the way I see it are just going to have to
"lump" it. for a time at least. But we're not going away.

Cross City Rehab Residents Boast Christmas

Cheer With Holiday Celebration


Shaping Up Beauty Salon


Pictured above from the top (left to right) Bessie Dean with daughter Betty Mehaffey; Billie Knight with
Santa and Mrs. Claus; Sons of Confederate Soldiers make visit, bringing Holiday Cheer; and Melva
Johnson with Santa.
Presents were stacked 4 to 5 feet deep in the Administrator's office just before the arrival of
Santa & Mrs. Claus. There were so many gifts, Santa had to make several trips in his sleigh. The
entire community and staff had made Santa's work much easier this year with so many gifts. Mrs.
Clause lost count of the exact number.
Every year, the Churches, Girl Scouts, 4-H, High School & Middle Schools, clubs & many
ordinary citizens provide hundreds of gifts to the Residents of Cross City Rehab. In most
communities, it is left to the staff and families to provide Christmas treats for the Residents who
reside in Nursing Homes.
Not so In Dixie County. According to the Administrator, she has never in the 20 years of her
Nursing Home career witnessed the generosity of a community such as this. "People come in to the
facility with bundles of gifts for no other reason than to bring joy to the Residents' faces when they
see all the gifts set in front of them to open.
This is a Community with a tremendous heart and love for the citizens who built the community
so many years ago. The citizens of Dixie continue to honor our Elder Residents with gifts and visits
when most others forget".
The Residents and Staff wish to thank all our citizens who helped make this the most Memorable
of Christmas ever.


Congratulations!

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 2007


Letter To The Editor
It is beyond ridiculous that people in Dixie, Gilchrist and North
Levy Counties do not have quick access to any life saving medical
facilities without driving up to an hour to reach hospitals in
Gainesville, Perry or even Williston. Anyone who has driven to
any of the above named communities with a medical facility know
that the drive can be up to 60 minutes in which precious seconds
are lost and our residents lives are endangered.
SAmeris Health Systems bringing a medical facility to Chiefland
would aid our resident's medical emergency needs but also offer
some employment opportunities for our residents. Why was the
proposal from Ameris Health Systems denied? I know why. It is
because the persons who denied the proposal aren't affected by the
lack of emergency medical care in our community. It is not their
family placed in danger being forced to wait up to an hour to reach
a hospital. These people have not seen their own loved ones die en
route to hospitals. The excuse used by the individuals who denied
Ameris Health Systems proposal was that a new facility would
take away from Williston's' medical center's revenue.
First of all I cannot name one person who resides in Dixie
County who has ever driven all the way down to the Williston
hospital during an emergency. I am sure there might be a few
people in Levy County who find the Williston facility easy to
access from areas Bronson or Morriston but the facility is too far
for our residents to obtain services. The question we all have to ask
our representatives is what is more important their revenue or our
lives? Maybe everyone in Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie should boycott
and show these folks what our lives are worth. Those who denied
the proposal from Ameris Health Systems do not care if we live or
die from illnesses and injuries.
In their opinion the revenue of Levy County's Williston Hospital is
more important than our husbands, wives, children and friends.
The life expectancy for anyone residing in our community is
diminished because these people think revenue is more important
than residents of our communities. Why is our community
allowing these people to put a dollar value on our lives?
SPlease. For the sake of our families and friends take the time to
call or write our representatives as well as the AHCA. It is their
responsibility to protect us and ensure that our needs are met. We
as a community have to stand up for our families and the future of
our community. We need an emergency medical facility close
enough to actually make a difference for our community residents.
How many more residents have to die en route seeking medical
care before someone steps up and makes the buck stop here in for
us here in Dixie?
Best regards,
M.J. Dunaway

Letter To The Editor
January 2, 2007
To the Citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy County:
My profound anticipation the last several years regarding the
plans for the Tri-County Hospital reverted to great sadness as our
illustrious Florida Agency for Health Care Administration
(FAHCA) denied the Certificate of Need (CON) to Ameris Health
Systems to build the Tri-County Hospital in Chiefland. The
decision of the FAHCA does not affect just Levy County, and they
appear to be ignoring the impact their decision would have on two
other counties involved in the proposed Tri-County Hospital Dixie
and Gilchrist which, along with Levy County, make up our
wonderful "Tri-County Area." Our Tri-County Area is recognized
as such throughout the state of Florida. In fact, two publications
come to mind when I reflect on the Tri-County Area (which
recognizes Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy as the Tri-County Area) -
2007 Bell South The Real Yellow Pages Tri-County Area which
encompasses the cities, towns, and communities of Bronson, Cedar
Key, Chiefland, Cross City, Steinhatchee, Old Town, Suwannee,
Trenton, and Williston. The other Tri-County Area publication is
the Town & Country GUIDE for Gilchrist, Levy & Dixie Counties.
This publication is a valued asset to the Tri-County Area, published
quarterly through Our Hometown Publishing, LLC, and a vehicle
utilized by Tri-County advertisers.
It is time for the citizens of the beautiful Tri-County Area to rise
to the next level and let our voices be heard. The FAHCA's
comment that the "need for the proposed project is not
demonstrated" is just not true. Though I do not portend to extol the
knowledge of a statistician or demographer, I do know from
experience and research that there are instances where an anomaly
can occur and I believe this circumstance to be just that an
anomaly, as our Tri-County Area God's country is growing.
Not being privy to the score card used by FAHCA in their decision
making, it does not make sense that out of five criteria mentioned in
journalist, Karen Voyles', article (The Gainesville Sun, December
16, 2006) only one was lacking the "anomaly" that "the three
counties the hospital was targeted to serve Levy, Dixie and
Gilchrist are not projected to grow as fast as the rest of the state or
region." Chiefland is in Levy County, and yes, there is a hospital in
Williston. However, this is not just about Chiefland or Williston,
but about all citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy County the
same citizens who patronize our businesses and who have
overwhelmingly expressed their desire for a hospital in the Tri-
County Area.
SMy husband and I have been blessed to have lived in Levy
County for 20 years and are employed in the education sector. We
have four sons two who have graduated from Levy County
schools and two more coming through the ranks. They have played
sports and yes, they have been injured which has required many
trips to Gainesville. Though good-spirited rivalry does exist within
our Tri-County Area when it comes to sporting events, I believe I
can speak for everyone that we become as one when it comes to the
health, and well-being of our citizens from the very young to the
ekierly.
-: My sister has served as an Occupational Therapist in the Tri-
County Area for more than 15 years, having worked in two of the
three school districts as well as the following health care facilities -
Cross City Rehabilitation and Health Center, Tri-County Nursing
Boine, Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Center, and Williston
Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The residents of these facilities
asre usually transferred to hospitals in Gainesville (with the
exception of some residents in Williston) for medical care beyond
thecapability of their nursing home/center. The granting of a CON
to'build the Tri-County Hospital would alleviate the emotional and
physical stress our nursing home population must endure when they
are forced to travel extended distances for their medical care.
Furthermore, it would be to the greater good for family members
and friends who know the importance of frequent visitation. Many


wish to visit daily but find they are restricted due to their own age
and limitations. There truly is no greater therapy than to have
family members and friends involved in the recovery and treatment
process. Is there any one in the Tri-County Area who can say they
and their family have not been touched by the emotional distress of
having a sick, injured, or maimed loved one, and trying to get them
tp the hospital as quickly as possible? I think not.
Fellow citizens we must be ready, in season and out of season
for what life bestows on us. We must count the cost, plan ahead,
and begin laying a solid foundation upon which to build for the
future of our children. We must insure that the infrastructure of our
county is solid and strong. Failure to do so will leave our Tri-
County Area open to chaos. As the past has revealed and the
present has shown, the planning process is a long one, and we must
be ready. Let us not fail to remember the recent announcement of
Progress Energy Florida who is moving forward with their plans for


a nuclear plant in Levy County. Would it not be a good idea to be
ready for that event though ten years down the road to prepare
for the influx of residents should this initiative move forward? It
appears Progress Energy has established their short and long term
plan (Reference The Gainesville Sun, December 13, 2006, page 1).
As citizens, it is our obligation to stay dutifully informed of the
strategic plans in our respective counties for the short and long
term future of the Tri-County Area.
That being said, it is time to rally and, gently speaking, fight
back. If the receipt of 5,560 letters and the proven fiscal soundness
of Ameris Health Systems is not enough for FAHCA, then we have
no choice but to take it to the next level. How many of you
remember when we gathered together that day in November, 2003,
when the Council of 100 held its last public hearing to explore the
feasibility of sending our water flowing to south Florida to support
its extensive growth? Do you remember how many people packed
the Chiefland High School Auditorium and Gymnasium that
evening to express their concern and voice their opinion? More
than 2,500 arrived by cars and buses that evening from the Tri-
County Area as well as surrounding counties filling the
auditorium and gymnasium to overflowing to express their opinion
before our elected officials. One of our legislators present at this
hearing was State Senator Nancy Argenziano who is a true advocate
of the people and a firm believer in the voice of her constituents.
The outcome? The people spoke, and their voice was heard in
Tallahassee.
Dixie County Commissioner, Buddy Lamb's, statement paves
the way for our next step "When a system put in place to protect
citizens fails them so miserably, it is time to change the system"
(The Gainesville Sun, December 16, 2006). The Tri-County Area
may not have a beautiful performing arts center, boast a significant
tax base to support program initiatives available to our larger
counties, or have the distinction of being one of the wealthiest
counties in Florida, but we are tax paying citizens of this great state
with a right for our voices to be heard. There is something,
however, that Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy County do have in
common facilities that are capable of holding large crowds where
our citizenry can meet, e.g., high school football stadiums. It is
time to resurrect the "town hall" meeting for our voices to be heard
and to extend a cordial invitation to the members of FAHCA, as
well as our legislative liaisons to express our outrage.
Frankly, without a vision, the people perish. Ameris Health
Systems along with supporters from all walks of life within our
area have had a vision for many years to see a hospital in the Tri-
County Area come to fruition. Many hours of labor, commitment,
and dedication has gone into this endeavor. On behalf of the
citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy County, I extend my sincere
appreciation to Frank Schupp, Ameris Health Systems whose
tireless efforts to bring a hospital to the Tri-County Area have not

brown, about 2 minutes.
The recipe comes from a
new cookbook created by Fred
Pescatore, M.D., a tradition-
ally trained physician who
practices nutritional medi-
cine, and Chef Jeff Harter.
Complete with glossy four-
color photos of many of the
dishes, it offers a sensible,
easy-to-follow program, based
on the long-proven healthful
features of the Mediterranean
way of life, combined with the
best features of a low-carb diet.
In "The Hamptons Diet
Cookbook" (Wiley), Dr.
Pescatore provides the latest
information about eating to
prevent heart disease, cancer
and diabetes, along with such
healthy shopping tips as: "If
the word 'whole' does not
appear on the ingredients list,
you are not getting whole-
grain bread."

must come together (citizens, county commissions, city
commissions, and city leaders) to lend our support and sacrificially
stand behind Ameris Health Systems in their attempt to appeal the
decision of the FAHCA. According to Mr. Schupp's comment in
the Chiefland Citizen, December 21, 2006, the FAHCA's report on
the CON will be published in the Florida Administrative Journal on-
or about December 29, 2006, at which time Ameris Health Systems
will have "a 21-day window of opportunity when Ameris can appeal
that decision."
In closing, I encourage each citizen of the Tri-County Area In
Dixie County Cross City, Horseshoe Beach, Old Town,
Steinhatchee, and Suwannee In Gilchrist County Bell, Fanning
Springs (also a part of Levy County), and Trenton In Levy County
- Cedar Key, Chiefland, Fanning Springs (also a part of Gilchrist

Exemptions for

Florida Debtors
At this time of the year. when
the spirit of gift-giving can be a
powerful and overwhelming force,
many people spend far more money
than their budget permits and get
themselves into debt. At times, it
can be writing a check when there
is not enough money in the bank to
cover the check, but most often debt
arises through the extension of
credit by a credit card company
such as Visa. MasterCard.
American Express or Discover
Card. When an account becomes
delinquent by more than sixty (60)
days, dunning letters are written
and if the problem is not resolved, a
lawsuit can be and usually is filed
by the credit card company against
the debtor.
Since there is no such thing as
debtor's prison in the United States,
the object of a lawsuit on a
delinquent account is to obtain a
judgment. A creditor cannot obtain
judgment except by going through
a court of law, usually the County
Court (more than $5,000 but less
than $15,000), but more often it is
the Small Claims Division of the
County Court (under $5,000). A
judgment is obtained when a Judge
enters an order in favor of the
creditor granting the relief
requested by the creditor, which
order is called judgment.
After a judgment is entered,
creditors have many ways to obtain
the moneys awarded them, such as
the right to garnish a debtor's
wages, or seek to obtain moneys
from a debtor's checking or savings
account, or seize and sell a debtor's
personal property, place a lien on a
debtors real property and do other
things, within established limits, but
debtors have rights, too, even after
judgment is entered against them.
Florida Statute 77.041 provides
that a debtor is EXEMPT from
having his or her wages garnished,
exempt from having money taken
from a bank, savings and loan
association or credit union, and
exempt from having other property
taken from them (by way of seizure
and sale, pursuant to execution on a
judgment) under the following
situations:
1. Head of Household.
Wages cannot be garnished if the
debtor provides more than one-half
of the support for a child or other
dependent and has NET earnings of
$500 or less per week. Even if the
debtor earns more than $500 net per
week, the wages cannot be
garnished so long as the debtor has
not agreed, in writing, to allow the
wages to be garnished;
2. The debtor's only source
of income is from any of the
following:
a) Social Security benefits;
b) Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) benefits;
c) Public Assistance;
d) Worker's Compensation
benefits;
e) Unemployment
Compensation benefits;
f) Veteran's benefits;
g) Retirement or profit-
sharing benefits or pension money;
h) Life insurance benefits or
cash surrender value of a life
insurance policy or
proceeds of an annuity contract;
i) Disability income
benefits; or
k) Prepaid College Trust
Fund or Medical Savings Account.
There are many other
exemptions as well. However, to
obtain the Exemption, a debtor
must complete a form entitled
"Claim of Exemption and Request
for Hearing" and go before a judge
and ask a judge to enter an order
finding that he or she is, in fact and
as a matter of law, entitled to the
Exemption sought. Even if money
or property has already been seized,
garnished or otherwise taken, the
Statute allows a judge to order the
return of the money, under certain
limited circumstances.
So, the best advice is to spend
wisely and stay within your budget,
but if you find yourself in a
financial bind and fear losing
everything because of lawsuits from
creditors, know your rights and
protect yourself as best you can
under the law.
The foregoing advice is
provided by the lawyers at Three
Rivers Legal Services Inc. a non-
profit corporation which receives
funds from various local agencies
and individuals, as well as from the
federal government through the
Legal Services Corporation (LSC).
For specific advice on your
particular situation, we suggest that


you consult with a lawyer ot your
choosing. If you cannot afford a
lawyer. you may call your local
legal services office to find out if
you qualify for free legal assistance.

SHow Can The Socal Security DsabilitySpecialistAt Integrated Famy Services Help You?

If you are denied a Social Secunty 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 our Dixie Sighting has a holiday theme...pictured above are Dotti Leichner (left) and hubby,
Bob (right) with a very "hip" Santa and his white guitar. Santa stopped by Dotti and Bob's store, Dixie
Music Center, for a little "jam time" before heading back to the North Pole where he loaded up his sleigh
and headed out Christmas Eve to all the good boys and girls homes. Did you get anything Dottie & Bob?

Uncovering New Adventures
Wild Adventures unveils plans for an all-new Amphitheater in 2007


Valdosta, GA- Music fans are in for a treat
next year at Wild Adventures. Kent Buescher,
founder and CEO, announced plans for capital
projects in 2007, including an all-new concert
amphitheater. New Passport options are
already available at the park, with the Passport
2007 now including free parking.
The all-new All-Star Amphitheater will
be the largest outdoor concert venue in South
Georgia and North Florida. The new
amphitheater is to be constructed near the
park's original concert stage and will feature
unrestricted sightlines, great sound and easy
entrance and exit. The V.I.P. reserve seating
area will include stadium-style seating and a
special entrance. Massive video walls will
enhance the concert experience. The new
amphitheater is slated to be completed in early
spring of 2007. Architect Richard Hill, of
Richard Hill & Associates in Valdosta,
designed the new venue and construction will
be completed by Marcus Holt Construction.
The new amphitheater will allow the
park to host larger tours that previously could
not be accommodated by the old venue. As
always, concerts will continue to 6e free with
park admission including all Passholders.
Annual reserve seats are now available with no
price increase over last year.
The new amphitheater comes just in time
as Wild Adventures is busy planning the
biggest concert line-up yet! Get ready for
country, rock, pop, Contemporary Christian
and more. Already on board for 2007 is the
red-neck yacht-clubber Craig Morgan. Other
country favorites on the way are Charlie
Daniels, Billy Currington, Montgomery Gentry
and CMA award-winner Sara Evans. The
Winter Jam Tour features some of
Contemporary Christian music's hottest artists,
including Jeremy Camp, Steven Curtis
Chapman, Newsong, Hawk Nelson and
Sanctus Real. Later in the summer, the genre's
biggest touring band, Third Day, makes a stop
at Wild Adventures. And get ready for the
"Joker," as the Steve Miller Band brings
classic rock to the brand-new stage. Other
artists invited to appear in 2007 include Brooks
& Dunn, Josh Turner, JoJo, Hootie & the
Blowfish, Brad Paisley, ZZ Top, Crosby, Stills
& Nash, Heart, Gretchen Wilson, Hannah
Montana, The Cheetah Girls and Tye Tribbett.
The new amphitheater is not the only park
venue enjoying a make-over. Animal lovers
will appreciate the newly refurbished animal
stage and the bigger and better shows to take
place on it. Discover new stars in "Animals of
the World" and even more slithery facts and
fun in "World of Snakes."
Aside from the new animal shows, the,
entire show line-up will receive a fresh, new
look. Find new adventures in Bugsville, more
magic and illusion in "Shazzam" and even
bigger laughs with our Wild West bunch.
Guests will also enjoy even more activities
associated with the park's special events,
starting with this December's holiday festival,
"An Old-Fashioned Christmas." Invited to
escape the hustle and bustle of the season,
patrons will experience the simple pleasures of
Christmas; the traditions that hearken back to a
simpler time. Millions of lights and colorful

displays will blanket the park with holiday
cheer, creating a glorious backdrop for a host
of seasonal activities. "An Old-Fashioned
Christmas" will kick off November 18th with a
special Tree Lighting ceremony featuring the
Tallahassee Boys Choir at 6:30 pm.

"Arctic Adventure" promises chilly fun
with skating, sledding, snow play and more
starting this January. "Kidzpalooza" shifts to
the spring, bringing with it a park full of pint-
sized activities. Red, white and blue is the
order of the day during "Celebrate America,"
where every day is the Fourth of July.
"Phobia" descends on the park next October,
complete with new thrills and chills and the
year winds up with "An Old-Fashioned
Christmas."

Wild Adventures will also see a multitude
of improvements throughout the park,
including games, rides, guest services and
more. Additional food stands will be added to
the park, including the transformation of
Dockside Deli. The deli sandwiches will shift
to a different location in the park, making the
way for delicious premium burgers.
Saturday's Food Court, located in the concert
area, will also get a new look and menu.

All the rides, Splash Island Water Park,
shows, animals, concerts and special events are
included in park admission. Daily admission
will remain the same for 2007, with Regular
admission priced at $39.95, plus tax, for ages
10-54. Junior/Senior Admission is $34.95,
plus tax, for ages 3-9 and 55 and over.

The all-new Passport 2007, on sale now,
includes unlimited admission to Wild
Adventures Theme Park and Cypress Gardens
Adventure Park in Winter Haven, Florida,
including both Splash Island Water Parks,
through 12/31/07. Free parking is now
included in the Passport 2007 for both parks,
as well as more than 100 concerts and special
events for both parks, special Passholder
"Sneak Previews," a coupon book valued at
$1500 in savings ( while supplies last) and
members-only mailers. The Passport 2007 is
$69.95, plus tax, for ages 3 and up.
The Gold Passport is the premium pass
and includes all the benefits of the Passport
2007, plus great freebies such as go-kart rides,
Adventure Golf and Geronimo Skycoaster
rides. The Gold Passport can also be used at
Cypress Gardens for free daytime cruises on
the Cypress Belle and free turns on the soon-
to-come Rock Wall and Bungee Bounce. It
can be used at both parks for free 10%
discounts on food, merchandise, season reserve
concert seats and daily admission to bring a
friend can be found at both parks. If purchased
before January 1, 2007 the Gold Passport
expires 12/31/07. After that date, it is valid
one year from date of first use. The Gold
Passport is $99.95, plus tax, per person ages 3
and up.
All the activities for 2007 are part of the
park's mission to create priceless memories
with one adventure after another in a safe and
affordable family atmosphere.

Christmas Dixie Style!


Kolton Lambert got an early Christmas present when lie brought
down this beautiful 8-point on December 23, 2006 in Ramsey Bend
Hunt Club. Merry Christmas, Kolton!

Camp Blanding Hunting/Fishing
Area Closes For Military Training
Camp Blanding's still hunt area No. 2 will be closed to hunting
through Jan. 11 for military training.
The area will reopen Jan. 12 through the last day of hunting
season, Jan. 14, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) officials.
Lowry and Magnolia lakes on Camp Blanding have been open
for fishing during the- hunting season. However, when the area
closes to hunting due to military training, the lakes close also, said
Gary Byerley, FWC freshwater fish biologist.
"The last day of Camp Blanding's general gun still hunting
season also will be the last day the lakes will be open all day,"
Byerley said. Beginning Jan. 15, the lakes return to their normal
schedule from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday and from noon to 6:30
p.m. Monday.
Magnolia and Lowry lakes on Camp Blanding opened for
public fishing access July 28, 2006. The lakes had been closed
since Sept. 11, 2001, because of security reasons.
"Anglers must check in and out at the Treat Road gate check
station off State Road 21 near Keystone Heights," said Byerley.
"Because of military security, we must monitor access to the post."
Military training days occur at times on weekends, closing the
area to anglers. Anglers should call the Camp Blanding Lake
information line at (904) 682-3318 for a recorded message about
possible closures, or the Lake City Regional FWC office at (386)
758-0525.
"Camp Blanding military staff and FWC personnel have
worked together to get the access to the lakes reopened to the
public. Anglers need to be aware of some additional restrictions
when using Magnolia and Lowry lakes," Byerley said.
"Anglers need to abide by the scheduled closing times of the
lakes," he said. "Access to these lakes should be considered a
privilege. Responsible use will hopefully result in long-term
availability of these lakes."
Use .of the lakes is restricted to fishing, according to
Department of Military Affairs and FWC officials. Swimming,
picnicking, sightseeing, water skiing or operating a boat over idle
speed is not allowed.


TALLAHASSEE -Florida's minimum
wage will be $6.67 per hour effective January
1, 2007 for all hours worked in Florida. This
Represents an hourly increase of 27 cents over
the current state minimum wage of $6.40 per
hour. Florida's minimum wage was created in
a constitutional amendment approved by voters
on November 2, 2004, and covers all
employees in the state covered by the federal
minimum wage.
The increase in the minimum wage this
year represents a 4.2 percent change in the
federal consumer price index for urban wage
earners and clerical workers in the South
Region for the 12-month period prior to
September 1, 2006. Florida's new minimum
wage will be $1.52 more than the current $5.15
federal minimum wage.
Employers must pay their employees a
wage not less than the amount of the hourly
state minimum wage for all hours worked in
Florida. The definitions of "employer,"
"employee," and "wage" for state purposes are
the same as those established under the federal
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
For "tipped employees" meeting eligibility
requirements for the tip credit under the FLSA,
employers may count tips actually received as
wages under the FLSA, but the employer must
pay "tipped employees" a direct wage in an
amount equal to the minimum wage of $6.67
minus $3.02 (which, as required by Florida's
Constitution, is the 2003 tip credit existing
under the FLSA), or a direct hourly wage of
$3.65 on January 1, 2007.


Nature Photography Workshop
Offered at Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge
Join Nature Photographer and Jacksonville Camera Club
president John Reed on January 27th and 28th at Okefenokee
National Wildlife Refuge to learn basic fundamental photography
concepts at one of the nation's most unique ecosystems. During the
Saturday's session, participants will learn first-hand what it takes
to get those great wildlife shots. Participants will then put what
they learned into practice during Sunday's half-day field trip onto
the refuge.
Registration for Saturday's session runs from 7:30am until 8am
at Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, Administrative Office
Conference Room, located approximately 8 miles southwest of
Folkston, Georgia, off Hwy. 121/23. Participants must provide
their own camera and equipment for the workshop. Bring lunch or
choose from a variety of selections offered at Okefenokee
Adventures Swamp Caf6, located next to the Visitor Center. The
session should close out around 4:30pm.
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes for walking outdoors.
Bring appropriate covers to protect camera equipment, in case of
rain. The Sunday session is subject to cancellation in the event of
inclement weather.
Pre-Registration is required! Class is limited to first 24
registrants. There will be a fifteen dollar registration fee, payable
by cash or check. The five dollar entrance fee into Okefenokee
NWR is not included in the registration fee.
For registration and more information, contact Okefenokee
National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center at (912) 496-7836 from
9am 5pm daily.

After-Hours Nature Program
At Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge
Discover things that go "bump" in the night! Find out what
roams the refuge when the lights go down! Join staff and
volunteers on January 13th to listen and look for bats, frogs,
raccoons, and owls, as well as other creatures of the night, on a 1.5
mile stroll down Swamp Boardwalk. Meet at 5:00pm at the Visitor
Center parking lot located at the east entrance to the refuge about
11 miles southwest of Folkston, Georgia, off Hwy. 121. After a
short introduction at the pavilion, participants will drive down the
Swamp Island Drive to the Boardwalk. The program will finish by
7:00pm.
Fear of the dark and what lurks there keeps some people behind
closed doors after the sun goes down. Many of the scariest horror
movies ever made capitalize on this basic human emotion.
Whether it's a mysterious rustling of bushes, or strange sounds
emanating from the shadows, movie-makers excel at building their
viewers' suspense level until the climactic finale. In reality, the
rustling sound in the bushes is probably nothing more than a
harmless armadillo, blindly rooting in the ground for grubs.
Perhaps that faint scream heard off in the distance at night is a
bobcat, proclaiming its territory to all who will listen. Maybe that
"whoosh" sound overhead is the wing-beat of a barred owl, flying
from one roost to another under the night's sky. Join us for a fun-
filled evening, as we go in search of things that go "bump" in the
night.
Pre-registration is required! Participants must register at the
Visitor Center before 5:00pm, where they will receive a special
program pass. This program is limited to the first 30 registrants.
Bring binoculars, flashlights, bug spray, water, and comfortable
clothes and shoes to walk in. This event is subject to cancellation
in the event of inclement weather.
Refuge entrance fees are not required after 3pm. For more
information, please contact the visitor center at (912) 496-7836.

Employees who are not paid the minimum
wage may bring a civil action in a court of
competent jurisdiction against the employer or
any person violating Florida's minimum wage
law. The state attorney general may also bring
an enforcement action to enforce the minimum
wage. As stated in Florida's Constitution, the
case law, administrative interpretations, and
other guiding standards under the FLSA should
be the guide regarding the construction of
Florida's constitutional amendment creating
the minimum wage. FLSA information and
compliance assistance can be found at
http://www.dol.gov/dol/compliance/comp-
flsa.htm.
Beginning in 2007, section 448.109,
Florida Statutes, requires that employers who
must pay their employees the Florida minimum
wage to post a minimum wage notice in a
conspicuous and accessible place in each
establishment where such employees are
employed. This poster requirement is in
addition to the federal requirement to post a
notice of the federal minimum wage. Florida's
minimum wage poster is available for
downloading in English and Spanish from the
Agency for Workforce Innovation's webpage
at:

FWC WEEKLY REPORT

December 15-21, 2006
This report represents some significant events the FWC handled
over the past week; however, it does not include all actions taken by
the Division of Law Enforcement.

DIXIE COUNTY
Dec. 20, Investigator Larry Ayers and Officer Justin Allen
were targeting marine resource violations on the Suwannee River
at Alligator Pass. While checking an individual who claimed lie
had not caught any fish, the officers found two under-sized Red
Drum attached to a stringer under the boat. The individual was
charged with under-sized redfish and over-the-bag limit.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY
Officers Matt Tyre and Bryan Humphries were working a night
hunting complaint area near the Lafayette/Dixie County line when
they observed a vehicle driving slowly and working a light. Their
vehicle was stopped and three Dixie County residents were
identified. In the vehicle were two spotlights and one loaded:
Ruger M77 Mark II .243 rifle. The driver and passenger were
issued citations for hunting at night with gun and light violations
and the female passenger was issued a written warning. The rifle
and lights were seized.
Officer Dennis Sharpe and Rodney Boone received information
from the Royal Gorge Hunt Club about a hunter who had shot-a'
doe deer. The officers located several witnesses and obtained
sufficient information to locate the person in the Tennilt:
Campground at US 19 and SR 51 in- Taylor County. The'
Okeechobee County resident gave statements and was given :a:
notice to appear in Lafayette County. The meat was seized.
SUWANNEE COUNTY
Investigator Neal Martin concluded his investigation of
individuals shooting a "trophy" deer illegally taken from a private
game farm on Hwy 49 outside Live Oak. Martin was able to
recover the deer, antlers and identify four individuals involved,
Charges filed include trespass, grand theft, discharge of a firearm
from a public road, and accessory to grand theft.
TAYLOR COUNTY
Dec. 17, Officer Randy McDonald received a call from the
president of a local hunt lease. The president told McDonald he
had watched three hunters throw a burlap sack into the woods after
being alerted to his presence in the area. The club president
located the sack and found freshly butchered deer meat inside.
Fortunately, the club president recognized the subjects and turned
their names over to McDonald. When McDonald arrived on scene,
he located a freshly butchered doe deer with only the hams and
back strap removed. McDonald located the subject's phone
numbers and called the subjects, who were en route back home to
Pasco County. During the phone conversation, one of the subjects
claimed to kill the doe deer because it appeared injured. A
subsequent necropsy, completed by a FWC wildlife biologist,
determined the doe 'had no prior injuries and died from a single
gunshot through the front shoulder and lung. Charges will be filed
for taking an antlerless deer out of season.
Dec. 21, Officer Randy McDonald arrested a subject for.
attempting to take deer with a gun and light. McDonald watched
the subject make several U-turns along US 98 before shooting at. a.
deer feeding alongside the highway.
Investigator Guy Carpenter concluded an investigation
stemming from an incident that occurred in Spring Creek WMA on
Dec. 3. This incident involved a man and his grandson walking'
down a woods trail, with the grandfather shooting at "bright eyes
trail markers" attached to a tree. The grandfather was unaware that
down the trail was a man in a tree stand. Concerned for his safety,
the man in the tree stand called for help on his cell phone. As a
result of the investigation, Carpenter issued,a warning for unsafe.
use of a firearm and direct filed charges for possession of a firearm..
by a convicted felon.

American

Legion News
The military newspaper
"Stars and Stripes" in a report
says "of the more than sixty
monuments or memorials
honoring Americans and allied
forces killed in the D-Day
invasion at Normandy, not a single
one represents the U.S. Navy. The
Naval Order of the United
States has begun its fundraising
effort to collect $500,000 needed
to build, transport and erect what
will be a 12-foot bronze
monument honoring the U.S.
Navy. The organization is
expected to dedicate the
monument on June 6, 2008, the
64th anniversary of the D-Day
invasion. The foundation is
accepting tax-free donations via
the mail at: Naval Order
Foundation, P.O. Box 583,
Glenview, IL 60025-0583, or by
visiting its Website at:
www.navalorder.ore."

SWith the death of former

President George Bush has
ordered all National flags to be
placed at half-staff in honor of the
forrmier President. The National

the :President, the flag shall be
flown at half-staff upon the death
of principal figures of the United

Governor of a State, territory, or
possession, as a mark of respect to
their-memory. The flag shall be
flowni at half-staff 30 days from
the -death of the President or a
former President; 10 days from the
day of death of the Vice President,
the Chief Justice or a retired Chief
Justice of the United States, or the
Speaker of the House of
Representatives; from the day of
death until interment of an
Associate Justice of the Supreme.
Court, a Secretary of an executive
or military department, a former
Vice President, or the Governor of
a State, territory, or possession;
and on the day of death and the
following day for a Member of
Congress." In following these
instructions, the flag will be at
half-staff until January 26, 2007,
in honor of former President
Gerald Ford.
When he entered the White
House in 1974 as the 38th
President, Gerald R. Ford, Jr.
became the fourth consecutive
President to have served in the
U.S. Navy, following JFK, LBJ
and Nixon, all WWII Naval
officers.
Remember our Armed Forces
each day in your thoughts and
prayers, and here at home,
watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, their widows and the
families of those called to active
duty in service to America. Help
out whenever and however you
can.

The Word Made

Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
I, the son of man, say The
Face of a Man (Ezekiel 1:10). This
beastlike horse is showing the
cunningness and shrewdness of
men who are educated and smart
in the scriptures being taught by
man. They, in many cases,
graduated from certain Bible
colleges that were set up by
church bodies and teach the
doctrines of those churches. Then,
like a mother, began to give birth
to children that came out of her
teachings. To be plain, what the
churches and colleges taught, was
incarnated into the people (young
and old) that partook of the
teachings.
I, the son of man, say the face
of an eagle this last horse which
had the face of an eagle was a pale
horse. It was in and through this
horse that the name of the rider
was manifested, and his name was
Death, and Hell followed with
him. This age was pointing to the
prophetic time that was to come,
reaching all the way to our time.
We understand the coming of the
'horses and what they represent.
Thank God for the prophecy of
our day. Out from the presence of
this eagle-natured beast comes a
people that are rising up
spiritually. They are rising to get
above the carnality that is showing
up in and among the religious
people of today.
What is it? Men who are
teaching join this or belong to that,
to be spiritually recognized. And
yet, they are failing to come to the
knowledge of the truth. Let us
compare the living creatures in
Ezekiel's time with the four beasts
in the Book of Revelation. One of
the main facts about the Book of
Revelation and what I am saying
is most of what you are trying to
see and understand is working
spiritually in the people and is not
naturally.
I, the son of man, say this does
not mean that everything is to
happen here in mortal man, not at
all. The Holy Spirit is everywhere
at the same time. In the Holy
Spirit is where these things come
to pass. Heaven is in the Holy
Spirit somewhere. The things of
Heaven are up in the Holy Spirit.
If we have the Baptism in the
Holy Spirit, then we can rise up in
the Holy Spirit like John did in the
Book of Revelation, chapter 1,
verse 10. Please stay up with me. I
want you to see the truth.
Continues next week.

Calvary Temple News
2006 is now in the history books! Calvary has been blessed this
past year to see the Lord do many wonderful things. The victories
have far outweighed the defeats. Once again, "God's wonderful
grace has proved sufficient." As we enter the New Year I have felt
impressed by The Holy Spirit concerning several things that I feel
will come to pass this year. One of the areas that I personally feel
The Lord addressing is "leadership."
In response to this leading Pastor Jim Hurst will be teaching a
series of messages that began on 12-31-06 on this subject. This
series will cover several weeks being taught on Sunday mornings
at 10:30 & Wednesday at 7:00. If you have ever felt the "call or
leading" to serve in a leadership role, you are encouraged to attend
these services. Leadership should never be taken for granted. Many
challenges are involved in a leadership role whether in a church
setting, government, job, or business. The principals being taught
will apply in all circumstances.
Over the years I have witnessed far too many who have stepped
into some form of leadership only to see them fail. Leadership
must be prepared for. No doubt that God is raising up many leaders
in this final hour. The reason being, "God is also raising up a
mighty army of believers and by necessity there must be sound
leadership." Our study will be based upon the life of God's
servant, Moses.
The messages are intended to help prepare you for what lies
ahead. Leadership roles require a great deal from an individual.
Jesus said, "To whom much is given, much shall be required!"
Unless we are made aware of the pitfalls going in, chances are
good that we will not succeed. This is not God's plan! Please
consider joining us!
New Prospect Baptist News
We at New Prospect hope you had a safe, blessed, and Merry
Christmas, and we wish you a most prosperous and Happy New
Year!
As always, it was good to be back in church Sunday, as our
choir and musicians blessed us with songs of worship and praise
and Bro. Billy brought God's timely messages from Luke 2:41-50
and John 3:16-18. We were doubly blessed in the evening service,
as Bro. Jody Mayo did an admirable job singing a special song.
Immediately after the service,, we heard testimonies from many
people listing some of God's great blessings in their lives during
the past year. He is truly a Wonderful God!
As the New Year gets underway, we look forward to new
and bountiful blessings in store for us through service to our
Heavenly Father. We invite you to come out and be a part of the
fellowship at New Prospect for a visit or, hopefully, to join us in
membership. Hope you have a good week, and remember to pray
for those on the church prayer lists, our President, and the people
in our armed forces. May God bless and keep you.

Levy County

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, December 21s' at the !
Levy County. Quilt Museum.
Quilting has started on our
next raffle quilt and another
one we have to find its name.
Sometimes we have to get our I
thinking cap and remember
what was priced.
Our many thanks go out for
a wonderful year, the many of
our 66 members who come out
each week to quilt and help
where needed. Thanks to the *
many visitors who come out
and help us to keep our head
above water. Thanks to the
boys, Jarrod and other officers
who came each week to keep
the museum clean and
everything sunny, planting our
vegetables, mowing and the
many chores it takes to keep us
going. Now we are at 900 boys
who worked here since we
started Apr. 1996. Thanks for i:i
all the fabric, frames, sewing
needs that we can use and sell
for the upkeep of our building.
Sometimes we have bags full I
of goodies that everyone can 1
go through and use. r -in f
Thanks to Gary Taylor who
builds our frames, and all the f JL o 1
wood things that make our
quilting so much better.

the electric work he does. Most
of all we thank our Lord for ( W W^I
keeping the Holy Spirit here
each day, to keep us safe and J
watch over our Museum.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"The bastard son"
Continued from last week. Because of this, all this discussion
and this question of being born for a purpose is taken out from the
natural realm and placed entirely in a spiritual realm where it truly
belongs. What we haven't seen in the past, but are now beginning
to see, is that the true child of God, is a child born for a purpose
trained to the highest degree of ability to fulfill that purpose.
We quote again from Hebrews (12:7-8) "If ye endure
chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons for what son is he
whom the Father chastened not: But if ye be without chastisement,
whereof all (son) are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons."
We emphasize again that even the bastard has a father, but he is a
child born without a "father purpose".
He is just brought into the world, to make out as best he can.
Ile receives no chastening (training) for any specific purpose, but
just grown up in whatever may come his way. But behold the
wonder, the glory, the thrill, the expectancy of a child born to
fulfill a purpose. A true son, fulfilling the purpose of the father in
the great work that is to be done throughout the age of the ages.

Top 10 List Of Complaints In

2006, Bronson Announces
TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson has announced that
violations of the state's "Do Not Call" program once again are at
the top 10 list of complaints in 2006.
The Department is the clearinghouse for consumer complaints
in Florida and each year provides the top 10 list so consumers are
aware of problem areas so they can take steps to protect
themselves from unfair and deceptive business practices.
The Department administers the Florida "Do Not Call" list
which is sent to commercial telemarketers across the country.
Consumers can pay a small fee ($10 initially, with a $5 annual
renewal) to have their home telephone numbers placed on the list
and avoid non-exempted unwanted sales calls. The fee is used
only to fund the administration of the program.
The number of complaints about "Do Not Call" violations in
2006 was 4.782, about 600 more than in 2005.
"Consumers recognize that the department is aggressively
pursuing violators of the 'Do Not Call' law and they are taking the
time to let us know about these unwanted calls," Bronson said.
"Telemarketers who do not take the law seriously are finding that
is a costly mistake."
The Department collected more than $125,800 in fines in 2006
against telemarketers who made unwanted sales calls to people on
the "Do Not Call" list.
Travel and vacation plans ranked second on the list with 3,814
written complaints; third was motor vehicle repair with 2,078

regulated by the Department by contacting them on behalf of
consumers and working to resolve the disputes.
In 2006, the division received a total of 28,000 written

Mexican Mini BLTs


6 slices of thick-sliced,
dense white bread,
crust removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 cherry tomatoes
1 Hass avocado from
Mexico
12 teaspoon Fruit
Fresh (or other fruit
preservative powder),
optional
% teaspoon salt
% cup wasabi mayon-
naise
6 slices of thick-sliced,
smoked bacon
2 leaves of mache
(lamb's lettuce) or
baby spinach
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cut each bread slice in half
and then half again to cre-
ate four equal squares.
Place the bread squares
in a single layer on a bak-
ing sheet that has been
greased with 1 tablespoon
of olive oil.
Place in oven and bake
for approximately 15 min-
utes, turning once, until
golden brown.
Remove from oven and
allow squares to cool
entirely. Slice the ends off
of each cherry tomato and
then slice in half crosswise.
Place the tomato halves,
flat surface side, in a sin-
gle layer on another bak-
ing sheet that has been
greased with the other
tablespoon of olive oil.
Bake the tomatoes in
the oven for approxi-
mately 15 minutes or until
the tomatoes begin to wilt.
Cook bacon slices on the
stove or in the microwave
until crispy. Divide each
slice into four equal pieces
and set aside. In a medium-
sized bowl, mash the avo-
cado, Fruit Fresh and salt
together.
Add the wasabi mayon-
naise and mix on high tem-
perature for about 30 sec-
onds or until paste forms.
Once toasts have cooled,
spread about 1-1% tea-
spoons' of the avocado-
wasabi mixture on each
toast.
Place one leaf of the
maiche or baby spinach
on top of the avocado-
wasabi mixture.
On top of that, place a
piece of bacon and then
a piece of tomato.
Each part can be made
a day in advance and stored
overnight. Assemble up to
an hour before serving.

If you can't accept losing,
