Local Habitat For

Humanity Secures Land
First Home To Be Built In Dixie County
By Terri Langford
The Habitat for Humanity of Suwannee Valley organization
announced last week it is closer to its goal of raising funds and
materials, enough to build their first Habitat home which will be in
Dixie County.
The ball began rolling with the donation of a 1.6 acre site off
CR 351 in Dixie County by local businessman, Joe Anderson.
Anderson also has committed to supplying the cement needed for
the first home, as well as giving a monetary donation of $15,000.
"We can't thank Mr. Anderson enough," stated Gigi Daube of
the Habitat for Humanity of Suwannee Valley.
The generosity has not stopped at Mr. Anderson, as several
other businesses have pulled together with their donations to the
future Dixie home. Gulf Coast Supply & Manufacturing is
donating all the metal for the roofing; Florida Forest Products
donated an interior-exterior framing package as well as windows
and doors; and Woody Lovelace has donated time, labor and
equipment for the clearing of the property.
Board members will be evaluating a Dixie County resident to
be the Tri-County based Habitat for Humanity's first homeowner.
The committee, which was formed last year, began the screening
process months ago and is close to selecting the lucky applicant.
Daube noted that volunteers are needed more than ever now
that construction will begin in the very near future. "Of course we
continue to need funding for the project; but we also need
volunteers who are willing to give of their time and muscles,"
stated Daube.
If you would like to sign up for this exciting project you can
call one of the following numbers: (352) 347-3240. (352) 528-
9070, or (352) 463-8003.
The Habitat for Humanity of Suwannee Valley meets the 3d'
Monday of each month at the Good Shepard Lutheran Church (2
miles north of Wal-Mart next to Dakota Winery on US 19 in
Chiefland) beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Christensen ran off the road.
Then once he got back on the
road,,he stopped on the outside
lane. Zagrocki came up on the
parked Christensen, and not
being able to see him due to
heavy fog, hit the left side of
Christensen's car.
Zagrocki received
incapacitating injures, while
Christensen received possible
injures. Both were transported
to Shands in Gainesville by the
Dixie EMS.
Damage to Zagrocki's
1988 Chrysler was estimated at
$5,000, while damage to the
2003 Buick driven by
Christensen was estimated at
$7,000.

Let's hope this works
While I'm not ready to compare George W. Bush to Winston
Churchill, I did spot a note of similarity in the president's televised
address to the nation last week.
When Churchill assumed the office of prime minister at the
onset of World War II, he told the British people that he had
:nothing to offer but, "blood sweat and tears." President Busl
admitted that mistakes had been made in Iraq, but made it quit
clear, while admitting that there would be additional American
casualties, that we could ill-afford to pull out now. Bush's candor
untarnished by pie-in-the-sky optimism, is perhaps what the
SAmerican people needed to hear, just as the British needed to hea
Churchill's admonition over a half-century ago.
Senator John McCain, who certainly knows a thing or two
about the consequences of not finishing a war, added the
observation that, if we pull out now, we'll eventually be back again
Sand the going will be a lot tougher if that happens.
A lot of Bush supporters complain that his proposal to send
another 21,500 troops to Iraq is too little, too late. One pundi
mentioned that we have-a lot of military personnel in Europe, based
on Cold War calculations dealing with the threat of an armed
conflict with the Soviet Union. While Vladimir Putin isn't exactly:
acting like an ally, this is hardly a threat comparable to that posed
:by Nikita Khrushchev; so indeed, why not re-deploy some troop
"to Iraq? It makes a lot more sense than re-redeploying troop
:already in Iraq to the Philippines, as has been suggested by som
-anti-war activists who don't want to sound entirely like the
appeasing pacifists they are.
However, we over-simplify matters if we conclude that Bush'
strategy hinges entirely on the effectiveness of the designate
number of additional boots on the ground. There has also been
:vastly under-reported problem of safe havens for the terrorist
:operating within Iraq, and this with the consent of Iraq's elected
Government. Bush told Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maiki tha
our commitment wasn't open-ended, that the Iraqis were going to
start pulling their weight, or they'd have to go it on their own. A
for the terrorist strongholds where we weren't to trespass, tha
: accommodation is reportedly out the window as of right now.
And just in case all this resulted in even more saber-rattling b'
-neighboring Iran and Syria, Bush stated that, "I recently ordered
:the deployment of an additional carrier strike group to the region.'
-'This certainly ought to let Mahmoud Ahmadinejad know that w
-mean business.
S Let's hope that this means our guys are getting the green ligh
to take the gloves off. In Korea and Vietnam, our troops were at the
disadvantage of having to play by the rules against an enemy tha
knew-or cared-nothing about civilized behavior. The "rules o
engagement" our military personnel have had to observe in Ira:
could have been written by Osama bin Laden. All right, we'r
Civilized and they aren't; but you still don't observe the Marquis o
Queensbury rules when the other guy is packin' heat.
The Bush speech may have lacked the eloquence of Churchill
but it did put the new majority in Congress on the spot. Vietnan
was lost when Congress denied financial support to our allies and
bloodbath ensued. Congressional opponents of the current conflict
ran on their opposition to the war in Iraq, but they were woefully:
short on ideas of their own on how to resolve matters in tha
volatile region. So all of a sudden they're not willing to let th
troops down. Maybe now we can get down to some serious bi
partisanship in the national interest.

(352) 493-0730 tysonsbzm@yahoo.com

January 15, 2007

To the Citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy County:

Recently 1 submitted a letter to area newspapers relaying to you
that it was time for action in reference to the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administration's (FAHCA) denial of the Certificate
of Need (CON) for the proposed Tri-County Hospital. (For a
complete review of FAHCA's denial, reference the following web
site:
http://ahca.myflorida.com/MCHQ/CON_FA/Batching/decisions.s
html -- click on the August 2006 Cycle, and go to CON No.
9936.)

As I circulated among the communities of the Tri-County Area,
the response from you was overwhelmingly positive as you
concurred with my thoughts. Many of you asked what you could
do to help. And so, the "time for action" has now become the
"call to action." Simply stated, the call to action is to write, e-
mail, or call your governor and legislators whose contact
information is provided below. If you believe the establishment of
a hospital in the Tri-County Area is important to your personal
welfare, your family, and community, then I encourage you to
write, e-mail, or call them prior to the next legislative session
which begins on March 6, 2007, and share the following:

1 support Ameris Health Systems in their efforts to
appeal the recent decision of the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administration denying a Certificate of
Need for the proposed Tri-County Hospital that will
serve Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy Counties. I am a tax-
paying citizen who wants my voice to be heard, and I
want my legislators to know that the need for a hospital
in the Tri-County Area is warranted. If an attempt for
resolution through the appeals process is unsuccessful, I
respectfully request that you explore what steps need to
be taken in the form of legislative action to rectify this
situation.

In closing, the prolific American writer, John Haisbitt (former
executive with IBM and Eastman Kodak and former Special
Assistant to President Lyndon B. Johnson) has been quoted as
saying, "The new source of power is not money in the hands of a
few, but information in the hands of many." Fellow citizens, for a
mere $3.51 in postage to write your governor and legislators (or
no cost for e-mail or a phone call), you can make a difference.
You have the information now what will you do?

Anticipating great things for the Tri-County Area,
Rebecca (Becky) M. Tyson

Letter To The Editor
As long as there are two people on earth one will believe
himself to be the better and the one perceived to be the lesser, if
there is any sensitivity will be offended. This began centuries ago
in the Holy Bible with Cain and Able.
Prejudice has a great deal to do with the strength of character
that fosters pride and integrity for those that have it. Sloughiness
and overbeariness for those that don't.
Out of his own self-worth and wisdom Able came forth with
his life's offering and in an extreme act of prejudice was slainedby
his brother Cain that was found in this case to be the lesser.
Having lived as a youth the turbulence 60's and the Civil
Rights Movement and later in films and books came to know and
understand the injustice being heaped upon those that wanted only
to live in peace and prosperity. Seeking a non-violence means to
justice was the only wise thing to do.
In 1992 Rosa Parks let me in on the plans for her to refuse that
day to give up her seat and for Dr. King to just "turn up" on her
behalf. Today this maybe common knowledge but then it wasn't,
Now when I think of the courage and sacrifice those people
were forced to make, I wonder about those that gained so much
socially, yet remain by choice impoverished and uneducated.

Dear Editor
I am a former resident of
Dixie County daughter. of
Van and Ada Green and I want
to say that I am proud of the
stand you are taking
concerning the Ten
Commandments being
displayed at the Courthouse:
I am proud that I was born
and grew up in Dixie County
where most residents love and
respect God and want to follow
his rules for their lives.
Only good could possibly
come from obeying these rules
of conduct that were given 'to
us by God Himself and I hope
they will never removed. I
wish they were in the halls of
all Dixie County schools as
they were when I attended
schools there.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007


Levy County & Cedar Key

Presented Historical Markers
Recognizing and celebrating a rich legacy of unique and important forest products history in the
Cedar Keys with the pencil, lumber, palm fiber and brushes businesses, the Florida Society of
American Foresters (FSAF) and the Florida Department of State's Division of Historical Resources
presented to Levy County and the City of Cedar Key a Florida heritage historic site marker
commemorating a grand chapter in Florida History. A ceremony was held on January 9" in Cedar
Key with a host of guests. The Cedar Key Historical Society, Levy County and City of Cedar Key
elected officials expressed their appreciation to The FSAF and State Division of Historical
Resources for their recognition of their community's heritage.
The following is a brief summary of why this coastal community received that recognition:
THE CEDAR KEYS: PENCILS. LUMBER. PALM FIBER AND BRUSHES
Harvesting redcedars (a form of juniper) for pencil manufacturing, along with pines and
baldcypress for lumber, was of great importance to the Cedar Keys and the early development of.
North Florida in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In 1849, German entrepreneur J. Eberhard Faber
...:. (1830-1884) arrived in New York hunting splinter-free wood
"". for pencils. He found abundant redcedar in Florida's Gulf
SHammock/Waccasassa Bay area between the Suwannee and
*. : .... Withlacoochee Rivers. He bought land and timber, floated


logs to the Keys, and
Germany. In 1858,
Faber built a slat mill
on Atsena Otie
(Depot Key), directly


south of this location,
Slat Mill Atsena Otie (Depot Key) and shipped slats
instead of logs. In
1862, he built the Faber pencil factory on New York's East
River (hear the current site of the United Nations) and

supplied it with slats from his Cedar Keys mill, a practice
facilitated by the 1861 completion of David Levy Yulee's

Eagle Pencil Company's Redcedar Slat
Mill this site (Way Key)


The Eagle Pencil Company followed Faber's lead,
building its New York factory in 1868 and supplying it
with redcedar slats from its own mill built on this site in
1876. This industry flourished on the Cedar Keys until
S.- the local resources were depleted and the slat mills were
"" ., v. ,4 destroyed by a hurricane in 1896. Augmenting Cedar
.' "- Key's redcedar-for-pencils industry of the era were other
i I forest-based products. Yellow pine and baldcypress
lumber was milled on the Keys by Suwannee Lumber and
StandardManufacturing'sPalmFiber Fenimore Steam and Planning mills on Atsena Otie and
Standard Manufacturing's Palm Fiber W K respectively. Cabbage saball) palms were
Plant (Way Key) Way Key, respectively. Cabbage saball) palms were
harvested and used for and used for dock pilings locally
and as far away as Key West. Later (1910 1952), the Standard Manufacturing Company
developed a process, established a mill, and produced brush fibers and Donax whisk brushes from
young cabbage palms. Palm fibers were shipped nationwide and as far as Canada, Germany, and
Australia. The rich and diverse forest resources of the Cedar Keys and surrounding area, and the
entrepreneurial energy of many were central to the settlement and development of the "Cedar Keys."
They provided homes and livelihood for thousands, products needed and enjoyed around the world,
and a proud legacy for Florida.
The Society of American Foresters Florida Historic Site Marker Program
The Society of American Foresters (SAF) is the national scientific and educational organization
representing the forestry profession in the United States. Founded in 1900 and currently consisting of
nearly15,000 members nationwide, it is the largest professional society for foresters in the world. In 2000, the
SAF's centennial year, the Florida Division of the SAF embarked on a program to highlight and commemorate
places, facilities, and activities of historical significance to the profession of forestry in Florida. In cooperation
with the state's Division of Historical Resources, the Florida SAF has placed markers in Shamrock at the Old
Putnam Lumber Company Lodge and in Fairbanks commemorating Florida's once nation-leading turpentine
industry. Action has been initiated to continue this program with markers at the naval live oaks plantation at
the Gulf Islands National Seashore near Pensacola and the Arcadia industrial complex near Milton. It is the
Society's pleasure to be a part of Florida's rich and diverse forest history and to promote the wise and
scientific management of the state's invaluable forest and natural resources.

Levy County

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, January 11t at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. It
was a great day in spite of
trying to put the Butterfly Quill
in the frame. Sometimes we
wonder if tops don't get hard
to handle as this one did. But
after several times to unroll
and roll we got it in the frame.
Sarah, Dorothy and Elvena
started the quilting and we
hope all goes well.
Carol Erley is our new
member and she has started
cutting and piecing a Chum
Dash in colors that will match
her home. As we say, she ha$
the fever and once that start$

its hard to quit.
Our first trip to Tampa Fail
is coming up and we do have
lots of quilts and crafts and
dolls to take down. We are
filling out applications to take
the Bus Trip February 13th,
The cost is $20.00 and where
we get our 47 we have to stop'
Call 493-2801 if you want to
go and enjoy a fun day.
As we look at all the food
that comes in each week, we
know we have great cooks:
Chicken, Kraut, cheese & mac;
baked beans, eggs, salads and a
table full of cakes, pies, etc.

* Why Spay or Neuter?
* This low cost surgery keeps your
animal healthier and helps fight
overpopulation. Millions of cats
and dogs of all ages and breeds
suffer as strays. These strays are
a result of unwanted, unplanned
litters that could have been
prevented by spaying and
neutering. Rarely surviving
more than a few years on their
own, strays die painfully by
starvation, disease, freezing or
being hit by cars. Please Think
responsibly, have your pet
-:spayed or neutered. Thank You.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
Notes to ponder when trying to decide what is good for your environment, and future.
To quote Yogi Berra "It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future."
1. The Clean Air Acts "New Source Review" program keeps coming under attack which, if cut
or eliminated would cut short the lives of 70,000 people in the next 20 years, due to higher levels of
fine particle pollution than the law currently allows. (Data from U.S. PIRG report of 2004)
S2. The Clean air Act would insure that the latest scientific data and updated standards were
implemented; with a five year review schedule.
3. The air quality in Taylor County, although not exceeding attainment quality standards, is
very polluted. We are the 13th dirtiest county in the state emitting 1,805,838 pounds of toxicants into
the environment.
4. Thirty to fifty years of new carbon dioxide, threatens our environment along with toxic
waste.
5. Diesel exhaust from buses, semis, truck depots, heavy industry, and construction compound the
pollution problem.. Florida is the 5th ranked state in carbon dioxide released into the air. Culprits are
power plants (# 1) and auto/trucks/buses. Children riding buses are exposed daily to diesel emissions.
6. Rising sea levels, global warming and global dimming are being related to the rise in carbon
dioxide levels. In 1960 the level was 52 million metric tons, in 2001 it has risen to 235 million metric
tons.
7. In 2005 the EPA was planning to limit information that companies would be required to report
bn their toxic released chemicals. In May Congress and the House of Representatives preserved the
public safety reports.
8. Fine Particle or "soot" causes respiratory and cardiovascular problems including asthma, heart
attacks, strokes, lung cancer and premature deaths.
9. If the U.S. Government follows through on their plan to assist polluting industries in the years
spanning 2010 to 2018 sulfur dioxide will increase by 2.5 million tons per year, and after 2018 an
other million tons will be increased for legal emission.
10. Power Plants are the largest emitters of Mercury and it is unregulated. If the government
follows through on its plans to not control this toxin 21 more tons will be allowed into the
environment between 2010 and 2018, after 2018 and additional 10 tons per year will be legally
allowed.
11. Nov. 11, 2005 http://www.stopthecoalplant.org/pr 111105.html
"When the U.S. takes action to reduce global warming they will likely require the power plants to
offset the tons of carbon dioxide they emit. The Energy Information Administration has analyzed the
fading programs in place in Europe, Canada and Japan and found that the C02 offsets are projected
to cost an average of $40 per ton in 2010 and $45 per ton by 2025. These fees could add $320-$360
million per year in operating costs, or 3 times today's cost for fuel. These costs would be passed on to
consumers and may bankrupt the companies that are heavily coal dependent. Some types of coal
plants can capture carbon. But rather than choosing cleaner IGCC plants, companies are proposing to
use cheaper technologies at the expense of our state's air quality and the health of our citizens," a
quote from Tom Smith.
S12. Read "Field Notes From A Catastrophe", by Elizabeth Kolbert and The Consumers Guide to
Effective Environmental Choices.
13. September 29, 2006 report Tracking New Coal Fired Power Plants just released by NETL and
dept of Energy gives indication that gas for new power plants will be the fuel of choice through 2020.
According to the report there are 5-7 new plants slated for the state. From 2004 to 2010 gas far
outweighs coal as the fuel of choice. A PSC report stated that gas will be the predominate fuel by
2014.
JOBS: The golden goose!
Want to be a carpenter in the construction of a coal-fired plant?
Carpenters learn their trade through formal and informal training programs. To become a skilled
carpenter usually takes between 3 and 4 years of both classroom and on-the-job training. While there
are a number of different ways to obtain this training, in general, the more formalized the process, the
more skilled you will become, and the more in demand by employers. For some, this training can
begin in a high school, where classes in English, algebra, geometry, physics, mechanical drawing,
blueprint reading, and general shop are recommended.
SSome skills needed to become a carpenter include manual dexterity, eye-hand coordination,
physical fitness, and a good sense of balance. The ability to solve arithmetic problems quickly and
accurately also is required. In addition, contractors view a good work history or military service
favorably. In May 2004, median hourly earnings of carpenters were $16.78 ($671.20 for 40 hours, or
about $34,000.00 a year before taxes and deductions). Depending on skill and experience the income
fluctuates.
Yours for a healthy environment,
Carole Taitt

"SPRINGS"
Continuedfirom page I

Gornto (spelled Gornto according to the Gornto family Bible)
is the only county park which is located on a natural spring and lfs
been a long time favorite of locals. With the addition of a floating
dock a few years back, the park has seen an influx of visitors froni
out of county as well.
Recent renovations to the park include the building of new
bathrooms; outside lighting; and rebuilding of existing pavilionn,
including the tables that were destroyed by vandals. Commissioner
Buddy Lamb stated that funding for these projects came from the
county's impact fees.
Lamb also noted that while the park is looking great, there are
other future projects on the drawing table which include fencing,
work to the camping and picnic areas and the addition of a live-in
caretaker to help control vandalism and keep the park clean.
"Sheriff Hatcher has stated he is committed to making sure the
park is safer with an increase in patrols, making law enforcement
more visible, as to deter vandals," stated Lamb. Lamb added the
Board of County Commissioners has instituted a reward program.
"Anyone who provides information concerning the vandalism
of the park or other county property which leads to the arrests
and prosecution of persons) committing those crimes will be in
line to receive a reward of up to $500.00," Lamb said.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), also has
the park in mind with a re-pavement project slated for 2008 for the
section of road known as Gornto Springs Road, from SR 349 to the
end of the existing pavement. It was noted that the pavement stops
short of entering the park, due to the area being prone to flooding.
"We are proud of all of our parks and hope that we will be able
to maintain them so that everyone can enjoy them," stated Lamb.
He also said that it is through the hard work performed by Road
Supervisor Howard Reed and his crew, as well as the Cross City
Correctional Institute staff and inmate crews, that the county has
been able to afford the renovations. "We couldn't do a lot of the
work we do without these folks," stated Lamb.
At a recent Board of County Commission meeting a
representative from the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail
commented on the renovations at Gornto. He stated that the park
is a beautiful addition to the trail and that we in Dixie should be
proud of it, as well as our other parks that line the Suwannee River.
With the focus of eco-tourism, Dixie's reputation for its natural
setting is important. Equally, our commitment to keeping those
assets pristine falls on all of our shoulders so that future Dixie
Countians can enjoy them as much as we do.

The Word Made
lesh
Aark, Number & Name of
the. Beast
, Continued from last week. I,
te son of man, say after Ezekiel
brought the bones together, he
could not get breath into them. He
4ked the Lord God about it. The
Iord instructed Ezekiel to
prophesy to the winds and the
winds would blow breath into
them. In the upper room where the
discipless were assembled (waiting
ftr the Holy Ghost), "...there
came a sound from heaven as of a
rushing mighty wind and it filled
all the house...". (Acts 2:2) That
wind storm of the spirit sat upon
everyone of them. When it begins
t. 'blow on you, you are going to
riove, whether you want to or not.
Iftold a brother, and I meant this
with honesty of heat, "brother
what you need is the Baptism of
tie Holy Ghost a genuine God-
given dose of it. It will make you
Want to go. It will make you want
tO do. I am talking about people
that claim to have it, and don't
have it. I am talking about people
that are filled with the Holy Ghost
ard let it teach them. Amen."
.' I, the son of man, say turn to
Revelation, Chapter 4. Be sure
you are reading out of the King
James version of the scriptures.
The King James version was
written by men who definitely
were inspired by the Holy Ghost.
These men did not tamper with the
scriptures, in the manner that some
do today. They left the mysteries
of the kingdom of Heaven alone,
tlit Holy men of God afore time
said would be revealed in the last
d4ys. They did not add to and' take
a\ay from the Holy scriptures in
order to bring about some easy,
fleshly carnal way of
understanding the Holy scriptures.
They let the Word of God alone
arid depended upon the Holy Spirit
to reveal it in our time. The carnal
mind and its ways only lead to
more religious disturbance today.
You go to church and I will go to
nine. When the Rapture comes we
will all go to Heaven together.
Well, that sounds good, but now
we are finding there is something
wrong.
I, the son of man, say in the
resurrection to come it will not'be
like this. In the first chapter of
Revelation, John the Revelator
heard a voice that spoke, he saw
oie whose head and hairs were
white like wool. (Revelation 1:14)
I want you to notice the difference
in body appearance of the one that
St" John was looking at, and the
ordinary picture of Jesus Christ
toilay. There is no resemblance
whatsoever. How many pictures
hanging on church walls and in
homes are like the picture that we
are looking at in Revelation 1:13-
11? There is hardly any
comparison. Please read Exodus
20:4. Continued next week.

and Dream Pie Blizzards have become Blizzards of the Month, a

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"Confusing The Time Element"
Traditions and manifested examples have taught men that there is '
permanence to the present and visible. Or perhaps not by so many words,
but by the placing continually of over-emphasis on the passing shadows.
They have done so by the misusage of many words, as "eternal", "ages", -
"forever", etc., and thus distorted and confused completely their correct
meaning. ";'
As an example we might note; people speak of the "endless ages of ,
eternity" with the very phrase being a contradiction of itself. In the first
place ages speaks of time, and eternity is a condition without the
succession of any time. Furthermore, if the ages are endless, then the ,
plural form of the word ages is an impossibility..For you cannot have
many endless ages, without making the previous ages to have an end.
Time must not be mixed in thought with eternity, for eternity speaks of
that absence of time, without bounds or beginning and end. The world has
confused the meaning of that which is relative with that which is absolute.
They cause the existing circumstances to take on an appearance of finality
and permanence. There is great contrast between the relative and the
absolute. Final permanence is only reached when God is all in all, and
until then everything is relative and transitory.
In the final analysis we see that what has appeared to be permanent is
only relatively permanent and that which is really absolute is reached only
in God, at the "end" of time. There is no time succession in God, thus His
attributes are age-during, yea, they are permanent. Now by the help of the,;
Spirit, we would challenge and stir up your minds, to provoke your ,,
thinking with some of the truths of our God. Pentecost has moved along
with the titillating of the emotions of the flesh for so long that most people
forgot that they have a mind to use. God gave you a mind for a reason, that
there might be a discerning, the making of a comparison, by the
enablement of the Spirit, that we might recognize what is age-abiding and
what is transitory. And then by the eye of faith of the Spirit look for those
precious things which endure.
There is no time succession in God, He does not have a yesterday, a
today, and a tomorrow. Time has been given to the children of men for
their exercise. We call it the purpose of the ages. God has fitted the age for

rules. A Social Security Disability professional can give you advice about what you need to do to prove your disability and help you gather medical
evidence. A Social Security Disability professional can request copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final
disability claim. Professionals specializing in Disability claims can request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and cannot do
because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007


Congratulations To Local Kart Racer

That Finished 2006 With A BANG
Ruth Rains Middle School student Daniel "Hollywood" Thomas, age 12, resumed his racing
passion this past year at Cross Roads Motorplex in Jasper, Florida and won the Jr. Stock unrestricted
track championship.
Then during Christmas break Daniel attended the 2nd annual Christmas in Dixie Race of
Champions. The race was sponsored by AKRA (American Kart Racking Association) and FKA
(Florida Karting Association) at Cross Roads Motorplex for 5 days or racing.
Daniel raced the b first day
Os R of competition in the Jr. 3
o OkS S R O class, ages 12-15. He qualified
I EX '"out of 22 karts and when
Mchcee flag the green flag fell, he was
I IL CI I t leading the way after just 5 laps
of a 20 lap race. After just 10
a laps Daniel was lapping the
Wl #ER 'S CIRCLE field with the 2" place kart
over a half of a straight away
behind him. With 5 laps to go
a caution flag was thrown,
which is a driver's worst
nightmare, especially when
you are the leader. There was a
wreck in turns 1 and 2 and that
brought the race to a dead stop
on the front straight away. Dad
was nervous at this point
because that meant the tires
were going to cool down but
they didn't. When the green
flag fell again, Hollywood led
the field by 8 car lengths
across the finish line and won
one of the biggest races of his
career. This 12 year old was
also handed the $1,000 purse
from the sponsors. I would
also like to add that Daniel was
the only driver running a 5hp
Briggs motor. All the other
drivers were running an
Animal motor which means
Daniel had less horsepower.
Daniel had to miss the next
2 days of racing because of the
Daniel "Hollywood" Thomas Local Kart Racer flu, but came back strong
December 315s for the FKA Jr.
-Stock unrestricted race. He qualified 4th and went to the front within 5 laps and led the way to the
'checkered flag again and was handed an additional $500.00 purse from sponsors for that race.
Congratulations again to Daniel Thomas on your achievements. You should be very proud of
yourself and may you have many more successes. Special thanks go to Mr. Donnie Sellers for his
Wisdom, Guidance & Experience. We could not have done it without you!!
Daniel is the son of Clay & Kathy Thomas of Old Town, Florida.

By Terri Langford
This past Monday, January 15, 2007, local residents gathered to celebrate the life of Martin
Luther King, Jr. and his accomplishments as an advocate for civil rights; believing that all men are
created equal. The day was kicked-off with a parade, traveling through downtown Cross City and
ending on the courthouse steps where a host of people spoke about Dr. King and how his teachings
affected their lives.
Pastor John "Tony" Harris of More Sure Word Ministries coordinated the 2"d Annual MLK
Celebration, which proved to be a tremendous success. Pastor Harris gave a lot of credit to the many
,volunteers who participated, as well as to those who, came out to the event. It was heartwarming to
see so many young people attend the festivities on their day out of school.
As folks gathered at the courthouse, Pastor Harris asked everyone to form a circle and hold hands
as Sister Sandra Malone lead the group in a prayer, asking each of them to remember to always look
at a person's heart, not their color.
Charmine Simpson was the first to speak, explaining the reason for the occasion, and why we
dedicated this day to honor Dr. King.
Elder Nadine Broughton of the Triumph Church & Kingdom of God In Christ, sang a spiritually.
uplifting song, really getting the crowd's enthusiasm up.
Ms. Hattie Bell Johnson was the acting MC for the event, and as always greeted everyone with
that wonderful smile of hers. Ms. Hattie introduced a host of guest speakers who included Cross
City Councilman Clay Locklear and Marcellus Dawson.
Locklear gave a brief history of Dr. King's works and what he stood for. He stated, "We honor
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. because he showed us the way to mend those broken fences and to move
on in building this land rather than destroying it."
Dawson spoke about how we as a nation must continue to work together, keeping Dr. King's
dream of a unified nation alive. Dawson also spoke of Mrs. Rosa Parks, who was the mother of the
Civil Rights Moment.
Minister Escar Thomas recited a poem, "Do you Have A Dream?" This twist on Dr. King's "I
Had A Dream" speech caught the attention of everyone in attendance.
The dance teams from Lake City, "Lake City Steppin' Girls" and "Lake City C-3 Boys," really
kicked the celebration up a notch with their routines. What a talented group of young men and
women, and what a wonderful addition to a day of celebration!
From the Cross City Rehab were Social Services Director Trudy Heckard and Administrator
Donita Tannenbaum. Heckard spoke about her experiences as a child during the integration of our
schools. She recalled how both whites and blacks were scared, but in the end, became friends.
Tannenbaum spoke about the spiritual Dr. King and his faith in God. She talked about the Ten
Commandments and how they are rules which all men should adhere too. Ms. Tannenbaum also
talked about how Dr. King's vision was to strengthen communities, to empower individuals, and to
bridge barriers.
Nick Collins, Cross City resident and our "Claim to Fame" as one of the NFL's Greenbay
Packers great defensive player, spoke to the young people. "If you want to go somewhere, you have
to just go out there and grab it," Collins encouraged. "Walk in a straight path and God will guide
you," he stated. Collins said that he was a prime example of what you can accomplish, if you try and
have faith.
Devon Jenkins, Tashonna Harris, Tammi Mingo, and Stella O'Hara & Dot Smith, all sang
inspirational songs.
The celebration went on into the late afternoon. It was a glorious day, filled with sunshine,
fellowship and remembrance of a great man who believed in our great nation.

"REEF"
Continued from page 1

said, the location of the reefs within the fishing zone will be publicly advertised.
"The northern corner (of the management area) is zoned for reefs designed to accommodate
fishermen, while the rest of the area's reefs will be developed to be more beneficial to the fish," said
University of Florida professor and Steinhatchee Fisheries Management Area designer Dr. William
Lindberg.
According to Lindberg, who in the early 1990s helped establish the Suwannee Regional Reef
System, a nationally recognized experimental system for the study of ecological processes affecting
exploited species on the shallow continental shelf, the design of the reefs located in the designated
fishing zone is meant to "put more fish under the boat."
Comprised of strategically placed "Lindberg's cubes"-large concrete cubes with large 55-
gallon drum size holes drilled through the center-the reef systems found both within and outside
the fishing zone will provide habitat to enhance fishery. However, it is the reefs located outside the
fishing zone that will greatly reduce mortality among the gag grouper.
As juvenile gag grouper migrate offshore from the safe grass bed nursery habitat to deeper water,
they are highly vulnerable to predation, according to Lindberg. The seafloor in between the inshore
waters and the offshore spawning grounds is relatively flat and barren, providing hardly any shelter
for the undersized juveniles.
"When the juvenile gag grouper leave the grass bed, they still have a few years to grow before
they reproduce," Lindberg said. "While they are growing they must try to avoid being eaten."
The Steinhatchee Fisheries Management Area should be completed in about four years, but
results of the reefs' benefits to the gag grouper and anglers should be seen as development
progresses.
The development of the fishing zone reefs is already highly anticipated among local Steinhatchee
fishing guides and marina owners.
"We think it's going to be great for the fishing," said Sea Hag Marina owner, Danielle Norwood:
"The bottom is very 'holey,' which is what attracts the grouper now, but there really isn't any big
structures for the grouper to hide under," Norwood said. "Building some high relief should increase
spawning and improve quantity."

the zoned fishing area, check out the following Web site: http://taylor.ifas.ufl.edu


The Buddy Show
by Budd', Mfartin

A day to celebrate the

past and present
GAINESVILLE On a splendid Saturday
when the winter sun was playing hide-and-seek with the "
clouds, and the voice of U2's Bono was bellowing 'It's A
Beautiful Day" on the loud speaker system, the Florda
Gator football team took a bow before 70, 000 adoring fans,
who were all decked out in their orange and blue
championship booty.
It was the perfect ending to the 100-year
commemoration of Florida football and a celebration for
what president Dr. Bernie Machen called a double
championship," as the University of Florida became the first
school in history to hold the football and basketball titles in the same
calendar year.
Urban Meyer's team rocked the sports world by trouncing
the No. 1 ranked and unbeaten Ohio State Buckeyes. And just in case
you forgot, the scoreboards at Florida Field were lit with the epitaph:
"Gators 41, Ohio State 14."
The pews were stacked full at the First Church of Gator
Football as the team took the field to drink in the roar of hallelujahs. The
fans rocked to and fro to their favorite hymn, "We Are The Boys From Old
Florida' and roared approval at the sight of their coach, chanting "Urban!
Urban! Urban" as Urban Myer took the microphone.
"For over 30 days they said the Florida Gators did not
belong," Meyer said, repeating the Rodney Dangerfield sermon he has
preached so often lately. "Little did they know we had a group of seniors
who were the most motivated group I've ever been around.'
One of those 21 seniors was Chris Leak, who after three
topsy-turvy seasons, finally found his groove. Leak never realized his
dream of a Heisman Trophy, but said he always set his sights on
something bigger: A national championship ring and an MVP trophy in the
BCS Championship Game.
On Saturday in a special ceremony, Leak was passed the
torch by The Prodigal Son, who retumed home for the celebration just to
pass it. Heisman Trophy winner and quarterback of the 1996 national
championship team, Danny Wuerffel, surprised everyone by showing up
to present Leak with his BCS MVP Award.
"It was great 100 years ago," Wuerffel said. "It was great
10 years ago. And it's great today."
So this was more than just a celebration -- it was also the
handing off of a legacy.
Wuerffel spoke of Leak becoming one of only two
quarterbacks with a national championship ring, but then admonished
rising sophomore Tim Tebow, "there's room for one more, Timmy Tebow!"
The symmetry was not lost on the coach.
"It was neat to see Danny 'hand off the baton to Chris,"
Meyer said. "Chris never had an opportunity to be handed off a baton.
When he came here, they handed him the football and said, 'go play.' A
quarterback shouldn't have to do that."
Wuerffel's appearance was kept a secret from Leak and
the team. "When I heard about Danny coming last night, I kind of got
choked up," Meyer said,
The 1996 Heisman winner was also there as a Gator fan.
Of the national championship game Monday night,
Wuerffel said: "It was the most dominating football game I've ever seen.
I've seen a few dominating games. And I've been in a few just ask
FSU." (Referring to the 52-20 victory over the Seminoles for the 1996
championship.)
The second Florida team to win a national title this year and the
second to achieve a national championship in 10 years watched
highlights of their accomplishments on the big screen at the newly
decorated stadium. Orange patches were removed on the facade the
south end zone, revealing a "2006" on the right side the words "National
Champions 1996." And at the end of the six Southeastern Conference
championship seasons, the numbers "'06" were affixed,


There is no greater invi-
tation to love than loving
first.
-St. Augustine
***


Meyer spoke often of his respect for the 21 seniors who
were introduced.
It took something like this for seniors like Ray McDonald
and Leak to realize. just what they and their teammates had
accomplished: 70,000 adoring fans at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium showing
the Florida Gator football team how much they appreciate the 2006
national champions of college football.
Leak choked up a little when he was
handed the mike, later lamenting the fact that this
S would be his last appearance with his teammates.
But he said he probably wouldn't feel the full impact
until "1 can come back later and see that '2006
;.?I' National Champions' onthe wall."
If things continue to go as well as
they have for Meyer these next few years, Leak.,
might be seeing a few more of those accolades
soon.
It's an old story, but fans seemed :
enjoy Meyer's retelling of the tale about how he was recruiting in Florida -
for Notre Dame 10 years ago and stopped off at Florida Field to see what -
kind of appeal this school had for so many young players. He parked
illegally (and later got a ticket), then walked to the middle of the 50-yard
line, where he phoned his wife Shelly and said, "This is where we've got
to get as quickly as possible."
Meyer took a fast train ride from Notre Dame as receivers .
coach, then to Bowling Green as head coach and on to Utah. It justliS-':
second year at Florida Meyer hit the lottery. Now he is linked forever i-:
Gator lore and, as a coach with a sense of history, isn't afraid to embrac-:
the past. He had great respect for those before him, especially Steve-"
Spurrier and his players like Wuerffel. Which is maybe why he kind of -
lost it a little bit when Danny handed that MVP Trophy to Chris'-on-:
Saturday.
"That's football right there,' Meyer said of the passing of-
the torch. That's Gatorfootball."
Meyer said he told his quarterback, "Let's keep it going."
When somebody asked if he felt he had overcome-
Spurrier's shadow, Meyer said no 'because he did it for 12 years and
we've only done it for two." But he also admitted that "we've started a
little shadow of our own."
*
The seminal moment had come for big Ray McDonald, the
oft-injured defensive lineman, out in the desert before the Ohio State
game when he spoke to his teammates and choked up, realizing that this
was the end.
"I got kind of emotional," McDonald said, "because this
was going to be my last practice with my teammates and my coaches. It
really hit me, thinking about all my knee injuries and my elbow. It just
really got me and I kind of broke down."
The sadness was gone Saturday, as McDonald embraced
the moment.
"It's going to be gone tomorrow," McDonald said Saturday
of the championship afterglow, "so I have to enjoy it today.'
Aside from the official speeches, hugs, photo ops, kissing up to;
sponsors, there was much talk about the promising recruiting class
Florida is about to land; and about a new entrance costing between $!7::
and $25 that is about to be built in front of the athletic department.
So the future is very bright for Florida football.
** *
The level of intensity for the Florida players was off the chart
when they took the field at University of Phoenix Stadium on Monday,
Jan.8.
Much of the wind came out of their sails and their hearts fell in.
their throats when Ohio State's Ted Ginn Jr. retumed the opening kickoff
93 yards for a 7-0 lead.
Many Florida fans admitted they had flashbacks to the 1995
Fiesta Bowl when Nebraska dismantled the unbeaten Gators, 62-24.
There was one proverb to be gleaned from Ginn's run, however.-
While celebrating his touchdown with joyous teammates piling on, Ginn:
suffered a sprained ankle and never retumed to the game.
Perhaps the Gators would do well to enjoy Saturday, remember
Ted Ginn's misfortune, and then be careful not to overdo the celebrating.


To love is to receive a
glimpse of heaven.

Hail To Old Glory

Though the colors are faded and weathered from the sun,
there is no phenom which can make these colors run.
Born of the spirit from the people before,
generation after generation our FLAG we adore.
The symbol of FREEDOM, LIBERTY and LOVE,
God has shown his grace on our FLAG from above.
As it flys high with dignity and pride,
those who would desecrate best step aside.
Don't tread on me as I'm held in the highest esteem,
The STARS and STRIPES is what I mean.
GOD BLESS AMERICA

The pictures above give you a taste ofjust how much fun was had at the OTES Snow Day.
By Terri Aangford
For the second year in a row, students at Old Town Elementary School were able to enjoy
playing in the snow, and with the warm winter we have been having, it was especially nice.
Pre-K Teacher, Cris Siegel coordinated the event. She noted that funding for the snow came
from a federal Early Reading First Grant, which helps fund field trips for pre-kindergarten students.
However, students from pre-K to 5th grade were able to enjoy playing in the man-made snow.
The snow was brought in by Gainesville Ice and it took hundreds of bags of ice to make the 8
tons of snow that lined a huge slide. Young and old alike took turns racing down the snowy slope,
arid some snuck in a snowball to throw.
. Siegel would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents, staff and volunteers who help
:make the day safe and fun.

requires a contract with the

a workshop to be set up with the
Board. Arthur Bellot stated that he
would get with everyone and see when
a workshop could be scheduled.
Commissioner Lamb recommended
that they change the name to include
River in the title. Mr. Dunn said that
they could do that, however, the two
Boards would have to get together to
approve the plans. He stated that they
needed to meet as soon as possible.

Springhouse Quilters began
their new quilting year last
Tuesday, January 9, with 33
members and guests present
with Jan Litzinger, President,
chairing the meeting. There
was a lot of excitement since
Springhouse took off time to
celebrate Christmas and New
Years and now it was time to
get back to regular quilting.
Faith Stanton, Program Co-
Chair, presented a paper
pieced, heart pattern design for
members to make for the
February meeting to celebrate
Valentines day. Members were
asked to make one block for a
drawing to be held in
February. All pieced blocks
will be given to one lucky
winner by a lottery drawing.
This will prove to be exciting;
just to see who will be the
lucky winner of all of the
Valentine pieced blocks.
Barbara Parks will be
presenting a workshop on
January 23, beginning at 9:00
AM, from the book, Nickel
Quilts. These blocks are quick
and easy to make and will
make up into a very usable
quilt. Members that did not get
signed up for the workshop
should call Barbara Parks to
pre-register for a supply list
and due to space limitations.
Gloria Myers presented the
block-of-the-month, Lemon
Zest, using purple and yellow
fabrics. This is a block
featuring lemon fabric in the
center and lemons appliqued in
each of the four covers.
Patterns may be obtained by
contacting Gloria.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007


Washington, DC Chillier weather in
many parts of the country has people turning up
the heat and possibly increasing their chances of
harming themselves and their families.
Emergency physicians are warning the public of
the dangers of carbon monoxide, or CO, an
odorless and colorless gas found in the
emissions of fireplaces, gas stoves, water
heaters, kerosene heaters, furnaces and boilers.
"If you get bad headaches or suffer from
fatigue, nausea, dizziness or confusion you may
easily confuse those symptoms with the flu,"
said Dr. Brian Keaton, president of the
American College of Emergency Physicians
(ACEP). "So it's very important that people
know the symptoms of dangerous levels of gas
in their homes and, more importantly, know
how to prevent the buildup of CO in their homes
in the first place."
According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 500
Americans die each year from unintentional CO
poisoning. Severe symptoms of CO poisoning
include vomiting, loss of consciousness, heart
irregularity and breathing difficulties, but these
symptoms can vary widely based on the
exposure level, duration and the health and age
of an individual.
"Every home should have a carbon
monoxide detector and you should never ignore
the alarm or turn it off without having the
sources of CO checked in your home," said Dr.
Keaton. "It is much better to be safe than sorry


when dealing with CO because
dangerous."

WHAT YOU
SHOULD KNOW
ABOUT DEBT
COLLECTION
If consumers do not have the
money to pay all their debts, they
must make difficult choices about
which debts to pay first. Constant
harassing calls and letters from
collection agencies can cause
consumers to pay the wrong debts
first, resulting in serious
consequences for the family. Just
as dangerous to the consumer is
feeling overwhelmed, and
ignoring all bills in the unrealistic
hope that they will simply go
away.
The following provides a
summary of your rights when
dealing with collectors and some
guidelines for determining what
debts should be given priority in a
financial crisis. Even when you
do not have the money to pay your
bills, you do not have to be
subjected to collector pressure
tactics.
Which debts do I pay first?
You first should use your
money to pay for what is most
necessary for your family food,
clothing, shelter, and continued
utility service. Because there is
very little a debt collector can
actually do to you, debt collection
efforts should have no effect on
you decision about which debts to
pay first. Threats to bring suit, to
seize household goods or garnish
wages should be given little
weight unless a lawsuit has
actually been filed and you receive
court papers.
Some general rules for setting
.payment priorities are:
S-Mortgage and rent payments
should always come first.
-Make whatever payments are
'necessary to insure essential utility
service is not disconnected. The
utility company may not require
payment in full even if you are
behind.
-A car loan should be paid after
critical items (food, rent,
clothing), but before most other
debts for nonessentials.
-Generally, loans with only
household goods as collateral
should be paid after more pressing
debts.
-Debts without property pledges as
collateral, such as credit cards,
doctor and hospital bills, and
accounts with merchants, should
have low priority.
-The threat of a lawsuit should not
raise the priority of a debt above
that of mortgage, rent, utility
payments, and a car loan.
-Do not pay those debts that you
have a good legal reason not to
pay, such as when the car you
borrowed the money for is a
lemon. Instead, seek legal advice
as to how to best fight for your
rights.
-When a creditor wins a lawsuit,
the consumer's home and other
assets may be at risk depending on
state law and the amount of equity
in the property. If the property is
truly at risk, make this a high
priority debt.
-Tax liabilities and student loans
should, be paid ahead of low
priority but after top priority debts.
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
Legal Services Corporation
(LSC). For specific advice on
your particular situation, we
suggest that you consult with a
lawyer of 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.

Carbon Monoxide: The Silent Killer
Emergency Physicians Warn Symptoms of
CO Poisoning Can Mimic Other Illnesses


To protect your family this winter, ACEP

burning space heater, only use it while someone
is awake to monitor it.
o Never use a gas range or oven to heat a
home.
o Never use a charcoal grill inside.
o Never leave the motor running of a
vehicle parked in an enclosed garage.
o Turn on the exhaust fan over your gas
stove when using it.
