On January 11, 2007, investigators for the
Dixie County Sheriffs Office (DCSO)
responded to a call at Knight's Sawmill
concerning a theft. When officers arrived at the
Cross City facility, owner Dwight Knight stated
that numerous items had been stolen from his
business; an estimated $3,500.00 worth of
materials.
For several days investigators interviewed
witnesses and suspects. They also visited a
number of scrap metal companies in
surrounding areas in hopes of getting a lead.
On January 13, 2007 officers arrested Keith
J. Pearson, 49, of Old Town and Joshua Hunter
Cone, 21, of Greenville, FL. Both men were
charged with Grand Theft and Dealing in Stolen
Property. Bond was set at $25,000. and have
since been released from custody.
On Monday, January 22, 2007, Alford N.
Fletcher, 40, of Cross City was also arrested in
the Knight Sawmill incident. Fletcher was also
charged with Grand Theft and Dealing in Stolen
Property. Bond for Fletcher was set at $10,000.

Pxie Fire Sta#fos R espond to

Multiple Calls Over Weeked


This is what is left of a single-wide mobile home that was destroyed by
fire over the weekend.
By Terri Langford
Dixie's Division Chief of Fire Services, Darian Brown,
reported that his department had a very busy weekend with
multiple calls that ranged from brush fires and an accident to an
explosion. The Dixie County crews also provided mutual aide to
Lafayette County.
On Saturday, January 20"', fire crews were called to a brush fire
in the First District off N.E. 970"' Ave. When fire fighters arrived,
approximately five acres were engulfed in flames in a field and an
area planted in pines. The fire was also threatening several
structures. Within an hour, the blaze was contained and the home
and sheds saved.
The following day, Sunday, January 21"', fire fighters from all
stations would experience an almost non-stop day of calls. The
first call was from the sewer plant in Cross City who called in an
explosion. Fortunately, it turned out to be a transformer that had
blown, catching the grass on fire.
At 7:25 a.m. the First District Fire Department was called to a
motor vehicle accident at the intersection of 351-U and SR 349,
next to the Trading Post. While going to the call, the fire team was
notified that the fire department was not needed, however, they
were needed at a mobile home fire.
Several units were called to the structure fire at 717"' Street in
Old Town. When fire fighters arrived the single wide mobile home
had already burned to the ground. Fire crews performed a "mop
up" of the area, making sure that all the hot spots were out. The
names of the owners were unknown as of press time.
The last call on Sunday was a mutual aid call from Lafayette
County. The call came in at 5:23 p.m. and fire fighters from both
Dixie and Lafayette would work three hours to contain a brush fire
that got out of control in the Cooks Hammock Tower area. When

There's no need for customers to step out of their vehicle when shopping at the Dixie Kwik Pik,
The new drive-thru convenience store in Cross City is truly the "most convenient store in town."
When customers arrive at the Dixie Kwik Pik, located along US 19 across from Badcock's and
More, they simply have to drive through the one-lane covered store to make their purchase.

City Moves Forward



With Plans For Water



Plant Modifications
By Briar Keathley
The Cross City City Council is moving forward with plans to modify the city's water plant. As
the modifications are made over the next year, the quality and safety of City water will significantly
improve.
"(Modifications) will make the water a lot softer, cleaner and better tasting," said council
member Herbert Hurst.
The Council voted Monday night for the city engineers, DRMP Engineering, to pursue the plan
for water plant modifications. The modifications will come in two phases, and both phases should be
completed within a year.
The first modification will involve the installation of a Packed Aeration Tower, or PAT.
Installation is fairly simple, as is the concept. A 25-foot tall tower will strip contaminants such as
trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and haloacetic acids (HAA5s) from the water when the water is forced
through the tower via a blower.
PAT has a successful history within the sate, meeting State and Federal guidelines, but is
typically only good for about 85 percent removal of the TTHMs and HAA5s, according to City
Manager Mike Cassidy. Also, the PAT will not improve the hardness of the water.
While PAT is the "most cost-effective short-term solution," according to Cassidy, it is not the
final answer to the City's water problems.
This is where the second phase of the water plant modification process comes into play-
Reverse Osmosis Membranes.
With the installation of the best available technology (BAT) available for water treatment,
Reverse Osmosis Membranes (RO) will remove microbes, organic and salts, and will soften the
water.
RO provides assurance that the City will comply with the state and federal guidelines, as well as
any upcoming rule changes affecting microbial/viral concentrations.
The PAT is essentially the initial set-up for the RO, Cassidy said, and will work with the RO
once it is put into effect.
The total cost for both water treatment modifications is $650,000, which \will mostly be funded
through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and a State Revolving Fund.
Cassidy said it is wise to say there will be some increase in the water usage rate, which is
currently $1.44 per thousand gallons, once the modifications have been made.
"It will be an unavoidable pass-through cost," Cassidy said. See "CITY"page 5A

photographs, many taken at
local springs, and shared with guests the aptitude it requires to capture each shot.
However, it's not only her talented skill, but also her love for the water and the life within it that
adds to the beauty of each photograph.
"She is a wonderful photographer," Parks Specialist John Lohde said. "Karen makes us realize
there's a whole other world out there for us to consider."
When looking at Glaser's underwater photographs, one might at first think they're looking at a
scene from another planet. The images are surreal, making viewers turn their head and squint their

"You don't even have to get out," said Dixie Kwik Pik owner, Lisa Fowler. "If it's cold outside,
or if you have kids in the car, it's really great."

customer drives through the store, a friendly staff member will greet them, collect all the items they

said, "pretty much everything a

store to carry, the Fowlers will
do their best to get it for them.
So what sparked the idea
for the Fowlers to open a drive-

"We just happened to be driving through Live Oak one day and saw the Live Oak Beverage
Barn," Fowler said. "We thought it would be a prime idea."

"UNDERWATER"
Continued from page 1


Give it up, Nifong
Nearly a year ago, several lacrosse players from Duke
University were charged with rape, based on the word of a woman
hired as a stripper at a party the Duke athletes attended. The charge
has since proven to be altogether bogus, but an apparently insecure
district attorney nonetheless seemed determined to pursue the case
until he recused himself owing to a conflict of interest arising out
of inflammatory remarks he made about the accused to the media.
District Attorney Mike Nifong recently admitted that laboratory
tests established that none of the DNA belonged to the accused
Duke lacrosse players. It might be added that there was a
considerable variety of DNA on the accuser's anatomy in areas
relevant to the accusation, thus exonerating the accused while
casting further doubt on the credibility of the accuser.
Not that the accuser (she still hasn't been officially identified-
"rape shield" laws, you know) doesn't have enough credibility
problems already. As the case unfolded, she has told more versions
of what happened than Joran Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in
the disappearance ofNatalee Holloway in Aruba back in 2005. She
was allegedly assaulted by anywhere from three to 20 men, and one
police report has her saying she wasn't "violated" at all. Details of
the alleged assault vary accordingly.
But even after the DNA testing proved negative, Nifong said he
would pursue the case based on the woman's testimony. Huh? The
scientific tests exonerate the accused, but the DA wants to pursue
the charge anyway, based on the testimony of a woman hired to
take her clothes off to amuse men, and who hasn't been able to
keep her story straight since?
Nifong recently decided to drop the rape charge after the
accuser admitted that she didn't really know if she'd been raped or
not. I really don't know how to put this delicately, but how does a
woman not have some certainty that she either was or was not
sexually assaulted by several men, if indeed that's what actually
happened?
SAt this point, one would think that Mr. Nifong would be a good
candidate for a Southwest Airlines commercial, which typically
shows a person in a progressively uncomfortable situation, then
hits the punch line, "...want to get away?"
SBut, no. Mike Nifong reluctantly relinquished the rape charge,
but insisted on pursuing related charges of kidnapping and "sexual
offense."
The kidnapping charge has to do with the accuser's allegation
that at least three men held her against a rest room wall and raped
her. We normally think of kidnapping as capturing a victim and
holding her/him for ransom with a death threat. Although the
circumstances don't have to be that extreme to qualify under the
law, with the rape charge out the window, whatever else could have
happened seems a bit trivial for a kidnapping charge.
As for "sexual offense," I'm not sure what the official definition
in that jurisdiction might be, but it sounds like a pretty inclusive
term. As a matter of fact, I suppose it might even include taking
your clothes off for money....
The case against the Duke lacrosse players has completely
collapsed-not that it ever amounted to much in the first
place-and yet the DA doggedly pursued it. At this point, dropping
the case would hardly suffice. Mike Nifong needs to resign and
prepare to face charges of prosecutorial misconduct, while Durham
County, North Carolina, prepares to defend against legal action
from the exonerated athletes who were unjustly treated by Nifong's
incompetent pursuit of this case.

eyes as they try to determine what they are looking at. It is only
until they catch a glimpse of something familiar, such as a lone
fish, that they realize it is an underwater scene they're examining.
"A lot of people that look at these don't realize they're
underwater," Glaser said. "Water magnifies your vision. It's
amazing."
When Glaser first began taking underwater photographs, about
25 years ago in a public swimming pool in Chicago, she too was
amazed at how different everything looked underwater. Still
amazed by the underwater world, Glaser said she had no idea her
curious experimentation with an underwater camera, given as a gift
from her boyfriend, now husband John, would grow into this--
books, art shows, and the opportunity to travel to faraway places to
further amaze herself with the underwater world.
Glaser told guests how she got from "that" to "this."
Shortly after receiving the 35 mm underwater camera, Glaser
and her husband learned how to scuba dive.
"Learning how to scuba dive changed my life," Glaser said.
But with not many options in Chicago to go diving. Glaser and
her husband decided to take a trip to Crystal River. Glaser was told
she would be able to dive with manatees, a creature she knew
nothing about.
Her early work is of manatees-the 2,000-pound creatures she
has a "lot of respect for."
Her collection of photographs has instilled respect for manatees
in others as well. On display at the Smithsonian Museum of
Natural History and at other museums across the nation for seven
years, the collection taught others about the mysterious creatures.
Although she did not have any of her manatee photographs
with her during Wednesday's presentation, guests were able to flip
through her two-part book, "Mysterious Manatees", a collection of
essays by John Reynolds and her black and white photographs.
Glaser continues to photograph manatees, but also photographs
scalloped hammerhead sharks, sea lions, and of course, duckweed.
Her photographs taken at nearby springs, including Manatee
Springs State Park, grew out of "my interest in springs and water,
and this phenomenal ecosystem here," she said.
Having just dived earlier that morning in Manatee Springs,
Glaser described diving in the springs simply as "beautiful." And
yes, even that green goo we call duckweed is beautiful too.
Glaser has also dived and photographed in the Ichetucknee
River, and is currently working as an artist in residency at the Big
Cypress National Preserve in South Florida.
Diving in the Ichetucknee River and at the Big Cypress
Preserve poses some challenges though.
In the Ichetucknee, it's the current, forcing Glaser to wrap her
legs around trees as she tries to photograph a gar fish. While at Big
Cypress, it's the alligators lingering nearby that make
photographing just a tad bit more "exciting."
Nevertheless, Glaser said she loves what she does and enjoys
exploring the underwater world of Florida. She described Florida
as beautiful and.unique, but also as one of the most insane places
she has ever been too.
"Florida is like a puzzle contradiction," Glaser said. "Some
want to save it, some want to develop it."
Glaser hopes that her work will help people understand what it
is that they're either trying to save or develop.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
Bless my soul. During a recent visit to Cross City I learned that
I'm not alone in thinking Commissioners made a mistake in
planting the Ten Commandments at the courthouse. It was
positively elitist to have thought no one else noticed what I saw-
that six tons of misspelled marble is a colossal waste of money.
Commissioners take heed!
It isn't the Ten Commandments, per se. Nobody has a quarrel
with the Code of Conduct that has served so well for thirty-two
centuries. It's more how it came about, who paid for it, and why.
I mean, it's pretty clear the Commissioners didn't think very
deeply about their decision. They were merely trying to please a
donor of great wealth, but I'm told that voters did hear the giant
sucking sound generated by the decision. Almost a sonic boom,
some say!
But let's be perfectly clear about one notion: the placement of
the marble has nothing to do with encouraging citizens to mind
their p's & q's nor with honoring the local faith. I'm told it's

more a legacy thing. Someone wants to leave a mark, a sign,a
"monument," if you will, that says, "I did this for you." Which is
kind of sad, in a way, since anybody who really wants to do
something for the county should send a big check to the Dixie
Education Foundation. The infallible way to get better behavior
from a kid or adult is with education and a job. The Foundation'
offers help that isn't just a lump of rock.
One more thing. What is the standard of excellence the
Commission hopes to promote? Certainly, literacy ought to be
part of it, which brings to mind the notorious misspelling that
immediately attracts the eye. Shouldn't the monument have been'
returned for correction? I know you can't just ship it Parcel Post,
but who signed for it? And didn't they check for accuracy before
accepting it? I mean, this is embarrassing! Come on!

Accountability
In Iraq
Blue DoS resolution
requires transparency on
how Iraq funds are spent
WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida), the leader of
the Blue Dog Coalition, joined
his fellow Blue Dogs today
demanding greater
accountability and
responsibility for the funds
spent in Iraq. The Blue Dog
Coalition introduced a
resolution calling for increased
fiscal accountability and
transparency in funding the
Iraq war.
"Since 2001, Congress has
provided more than $500
billion for military and
reconstruction operations in
Iraq and Afghanistan, and to
date, there has been little to no
accountability for how these
funds were being spent," said
Congressman Boyd. "Our
brave troops, our military
families, Congress, and the
American people deserve to
know where the money is
going and that it is being spent
in the most effective and
efficient way."
The Blue Dog's Operation
Iraqi Freedom Cost
Accountability Resolution
focuses on four crucial points
for demanding fiscal
accountability in Iraq.
Specifically, the resolution
would:
Call for transparency on
how Iraq war funds are spent.
Create a Truman
Commission to investigate the
awarding of contracts.
,Require that the Iraq war is
funded through the normal
appropriations process and not
through "emergency"
supplementals.
Use American resources to
improve Iraqi assumption of
internal policing operations.
"The Blue Dog resolution
will bring much-needed
accountability to our costs in
Iraq and force Congress to
assume its constitutional duty
of oversight," Boyd stated. "It
is well past time for the
Administration to be held
accountable for the money sent
to Iraq, and it is well past time
for: Congress to exercise our
oversight role."
,.Congressman Boyd is a
fifth generation farmer and
Army veteran from
Monticello, Florida, in his
sixth term representing
Florida's 2nd Congressional
District. In addition to his
work on the Blue Dog
Coalition, Congressman Boyd
serves on the House
Appropriations Committee and
the'House Budget Committee.

Traveling Down Memory Lane


...Life In Ditie DuriWng fWII


(Pictures courtesy of Edward Barthle, son of Ignatius Barthle of the 81"' FS)
Can you identify any of these men? These two photos were taken during WWII by a member of the 81'" Fighter Squadron. The
Advocate will feature a number of the photos left in our care throughout the weeks. We hope that you will enjoy "traveling down
memory lane" with us. And ifyou happen to be able to.identify the people and places in the pictures, give us a call at 498-3312.
Audrey Bush called and was able to identify the two buildings featured in last weeks Advocate. Audrey noted that the picture in
the top left was of Henry's Restaurant and is currently the home of the Badcock's & More store. The building pictured on the
bottom right is of a cafe owned by Gussie Morgan and was located where McDonalds stands now. Thanks Audrey!
Also calling, all the way from Tarpon Springs, was Goldie Henry Roberts daughter of Chris Henry himself! Goldie gave us a
brief history of her family. Her father was from Turkey and her mother was from Athens, Greece. They met in Greece, fell in love
and got married. Goldie and her sister were born in Greece and then they moved to Clearwater. Henry had an uncle who had a
restaurant in Mayo and in visiting and working some with him learned of Dixie County. The Henrys moved to Cross City in 1936
and set up the restaurant, which fed many a resident until it closed in 1959, after Henry's death. "I know that if Daddy were still
alive the restaurant would still be open, he loved it," Goldie stated. Goldie also noted that she and her sisters, Sylvia and Diane
worked at Henry's too, helping to serve up good home style American food. The Henry's also owned the Brown Jug bar, which is
also gone from the Cross City landscape. Thanks for the information!
"CITY"
Continued from page 1"FIRES


Although the City's water quality has never been better, due to improvements made two years
ago. state and federal requirements have become more strict, placing a huge responsibility on the
Council to further improve the water quality, Cassidy said.
"If (the City) has to increase costs, it is because it is passing on the best technology to citizens for
the most effective cost." Cassidy explained. "If prices go up, the Council wants citizens to be happy
with the water quality and see the difference."
In other business at the Council meeting:
Smokey's Bar-B-Que restaurant will now be able to serve beer. As approved by the city
council during a public hearing, a special exception will allow Smokey's Bar-B-Que to serve beer on
its premises, with a few minor stipulations. One stipulation requires that no signs advertising
alcoholic beverage brands be placed outside of the restaurant, or in the windows of the restaurant.
Another stipulation requires that patrons must order food items off the menu if they wish to order
beer.
Although Smokey's owner Danny Herring agreed that with or without the special conditions
specified in the special exception, he would enforce them on his own, the Council wanted to ensure
that if the business were ever sold, the new owner would have to follow the special conditions as
well.
Herring stated that the restaurant could be serving beer as early as this weekend or the next.
The Council discussed options regarding arsenic found in private wells in an area slightly cast
and west of 351 A, north of the Greenways. At this time, the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection can work with residents who have arsenic above safe levels in their wells to provide an
in-home water filtration system. However, the City is willing to look at funding sources to install
water lines to those homes as means of a long-term solution to the problem.

shed attached to it was in
flames. The fire also had
spread to several of the other
campers. With team-work all
the fires were extinguished and
brought under control.
The only love worthy of a
name is "unconditional."
-John Powell


"ARRESTS"
Continued from page 1
On the 18th of January, deputies stopped Sherman Deleon
Heidelburg, 34, of Cross City for a routine traffic stop. During the
stop, the drug dog, "K-9" walked around the exterior of the vehicle
and gave a positive alert. When deputies searched the car they
found a crack pipe, loaded with cocaine.
Heidelburg was arrested at the scene and transported to the
Dixie County Jail where he, was charged with Possession of a
Controled Substance and Possession, f Drug Paraphernalia.
During a search of Heidelburg during the time he was being
processed at the jail, officers located marijuana and a smoking
pipe, hidden on his body. The additional charge of Introduction of
Contraband Inside a Correctional Facility was added.
Heidelburg remains in the Dixie County Jail, without bond; due
to the fact his arrest violated his probation.
According to Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, the Sheriff's Office
performed a mobile operation from January 16-19. During that
time frame, the DCSO issued 12 uniformed traffic citations, 11
notices to appear (7 for possession of marijuana -20 grams, and 4
for possession of drug paraphernalia), 30 verbal warnings, and 1
physical arrest.
The physical arrest was Justin Root, 28, of Apopka, FL. Root
was charged with Possession of -20 Grams of Marijuana,
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Reckless Driving, and Driving
While License Suspended or Revoked. Bond for Root was set at
$8,000. and he has since been released from the Dixie County Jail.
Sheriff Hatcher stated that this recent mobile operation, as well
as the other arrests last week are just a few examples of his
continued stand on arresting those who choose to buy, sell or use
drugs in Dixie County.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOW'ERi
Michael Guado
Mclier. Georgia


A lady raised a sea gull fror
birth. He was tied in the yard, an
was given everything he needed
But he refused to eat. He lost hi
spirit.
SOne day the lady drove him t
the shore and released hirr
Suddenly he cocked his head and
listened. Then he stretched hi
neck and raised his feathers
Away he soared to the other gulls
They heard his cry and welcomed
him.
I The Bible says, "Deep calletl
Unto deep." The deep within yoi
is calling to the deep beyond you
You were made for the Lord
You'll never be satisfied until yoi
come to Him. Come now, won
you?


The Word Made
Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
ihe son of man, say is it right to
hang a graven image on our walls,
When \~e are told in the Ten
Commandmenis not to do so?
Here is the contrast between the
carnal mind and the spiritual mind.
Exodus 20:4 There is no way that
the carnal natural mind of a human
creature can figure out why Saint
John saw Jesus like this. The truth
is he had to see Jesus like this in
order to see the works of Him
through the Book of Revelation.
When Jesus Christ reveals the
Book of Revelation to us, we see
plainly why Saint John saw Him
like this. He does not have a
fleshly, tangible, human body; He
has a spiritual body, sitting on the
right hand of God's majesty. This
is what we must teach and search
for. The Revelation of Jesus Christ
is the answer to all of it.
I, the son of man, say the
teaching of our elders has drifted
into spiritual illusion, building up
imaginations of the world to come,
in all manner of religious
fantasies. In most cases, they are
completely separated from the true
grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that
~nust be a part of us. Certainly the
great falling away is beginning to
show in our day. The vision of
Jesus Christ in this first chapter of
Revelation sets in order the
writing to the seven churches. In
our time, the true revelation of
Jesus Christ opened up the Book
of Revelation all the way to this
aay. In Revelation 1:10 John says
'1 was in the spirit on the Lord's
day." While he was in the spirit,
jlereceived the messages to the
ysven churches. Then as we
approach Chapter 4, something
begins to happen to Saint John.
l Tny Jesus Christ can reveal to us
.v~!iat is taking place in the life of
John as he carried up in the Holy
Ghost. In Revelation 4:1-2 Jon
says, "After this I looked, and,
behold, a door was opened in
H-aven: and the first voice which
t heard was as it were of a trumpet
a king to me; which said, Come
'p hither, and I will show thee
things which must be hereafter.
jkid immediately I was in the
Spirit; and, behold, a throne was
set in heaven, and one sat on the
throne."
f; I, the son of man, say notice,
fhO one on the throne did not have
~i: image. All John saw on the
throne was colors, beautiful
colors. And yet, John saw one
siding there. What is the reason
fot John to be in the presence of
Heaven? What about this one that
satt on the throne, that could be
sOeri, and yet not visible to the
natural eye? John was not looking
into the natural elements when he
saw the one on the throne. He was
ii',the spirit on the Lord's Day.
Please stay up with me. Continued
next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
Several attendees of the Gaithers Concert last Friday reported
that it was one of the best ever, and all of them had a very
enjoyable evening. We thank God for his loving care in returning
all safely home.
On a very pleasant January day, it was wonderful to be in
church again Sunday. Our choir was in fine form, singing the
songs of praise and worship with great feeling and enthusiasm.
Bro. Billy chose his text from John 1:35-37 and, with God's
leadership, proceeded to bring a most moving and self-searching
message. It was, indeed, good to be in God's house on this day.
We were pleased to have visitors again Sunday, as always. We
extend our invitation to all visitors at all times...you're welcome to
come and be a part of our fellowship at New Prospect. Have a
good week, and remember to maintain your prayers for all the sick
and bereaved people in our community, our military personnel, and
our President and other leaders. May God be with you.

Card of Thanks
We would like to thank all the many friends and family who
sent cards, made telephone calls, made visits, sent floral
arrangements, made donations, brought food, came to the viewing
and/or attended the service for Henry. It is only through the prayers
and these acts of kindnesses that we have been able to cope with
this long illness and passing of our loved one. Words cannot
express our gratitude to people of this wonderful community that
we live in. The comfort and sincere caring that has been shown to
us is immeasurable. A special "thank you" to the wonderful people
at Haven Hospice who cared for Henry. They are very special
people. May God bless each of you.
The family of Henry Eady

In Loving Memory of Christopher;

Michael
On January 29, 2006 you
went away. Most days feel like
just yesterday. A year has gone
by. Everyday I remind myself '.
the last time I'd seen you, you
were holding the hand of
Jesus. That proves that there is
a greater place beyond us. I
know that you are still smiling
and you are very happy. When
everyone sees your picture you
remind us of great memories
that you've left behind. Then
we all know that you walk
beside us everyday. We'll see
you again someday.
Love always,
Kerri
Christopher Michael

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"Confusing the time element"
God has fitted the ages for His purpose. And understanding this can;
prove most helpful even as we find the little phrase "and it came to pass"
gives us encouragement to know that some of these trials which engulf, is
are going to pass away, they came "to pass" not come to stay. The time
might seem long, but time has an end and the ultimates are secure-'ir
Christ. The absolute is reached at the ending of time. When we come intof
God and begin to move in Him, we come into a place where time isnc~q
more, that is, we are no longer under its bondages, for the Lord is ever the
"I Am", the eternal present. Haven't you found it so? Once you enter into
the realm of spirit worship and praise in Him you lose all sense of "tirlie
consciousness".
Five minutes can seem like hours and more for you seem to transverse!
such expanses in God, or hours might seem like minutes for you are,so
thrilled with His glory. This is but a faint foretaste of how it shall be when
we are fully redeemed and come "into God". When we come to the place
where we are living in the "I Am", present tense, we are in a place were
there is no such thing as time hindrances as far as our spiritual life is
concerned. And in that place we shall find that which is permanent,/
unchangeable. God is the eternal center of all things, and it is in Him that
we find true stability and final permanence. Now let us make some,
contrasts, of the relative as set over against the absolute. That which s'
presently seen outside of spiritual reality is unreal in the sense that it is not
absolute, but transitory. One of those days we are going to "wake up'"to
the fact that these present things that seem so real and important really are
of no importance at all, but are as a dream, when God brings us into His
true realities. For in God's light of reality, of the absolute, all the rest of
these things are unreal, by reason of the fact they're transitory, going to
pass away. And when they do pass away, where are they? They are gone,
dissipated again into the nothingness from which they came.
We need to clean out the cobwebs, which have gathered, in our mind
through inactivity, purge out the spiders of traditional and ancestral error,
and "gird up the loins of our mind" that we might be challenged by the
Spirit to understand the truth, and find our adjustment in the things, of
God. We are going to be transformed by the renewing of our minds into
knowledge after the image of Him that created him." Continued next
week.
If Tears Could Build A Stairway:
If tears could build a
stairway, and memories a lane,
I would walk right up to
Heaven and bring you back
again.
No farewell \ yorJ e were
spoken, no time to say .
"Goodbye". You were gone
before I knew it, and only God
knows why.
My heart still aches with
sadness, and secret tears still
flow. What it meant to love
you, no one can ever know.
But now I know you want
me, to mourn for you no more.
To remember all the happy Sam Chesser
times, life still has much in
store.
Since you'll never be forgotten. I pledge to you today.- A
hollowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay.
We miss you.
Love,

evidence. A Social Security Disability professional call request copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final

because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.

"THE BLUSHING BUG"...
This week our Dixie Sighting comes from sisters Lois Crawford and Annette Hinds. Annette
.found this brightly colored katydid in her yard recently and passed it on to Lois to give to us.
SIn researching the unusual colored critter, we found that it is just like the normal green katydid;
accept, of course, for its color. There are some 4,000 species of katydids in the world. In the Amazon
'alone there are about 2,000!
Katydids get their name from the way their songs sound, which is made when they rub a scraper
'on one forewing against a file on the other front wing. Some katydids have been called long-horned
grasshoppers because of their long and slender shape. However, katydids are more similar and
related to crickets than grasshoppers.
Katydids lay their eggs in many places including the soil, in stems of plants and in bark of trees.
Nymphs look much like the adults, just smaller and lack fully developed wings.
Predators of the katydid include from bats and birds to snakes and shrews. However, they are
very skillful at camouflage.
Thanks Lois and Annette!

certifies educators who meet
high quality professional
teaching standards. The
National Board for
Professional Teaching
SStandards (NBPTS) is an
independent, nonprofit,
nonpartisan and

teaching and learning by
Left to right: Superintendent Dennis W. Bennett, Judy Sumrall, and developing professional
DCHS Principal Buddy Schofield. standards for accomplished
teaching, creating a voluntary
system to certify teachers who meet those standards and integrating certified teachers into
'educational reform efforts. NBPTS is recognized for developing the professional standards that
'define what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do.
National Board Certification is the highest credential in the teaching profession. A teacher-
driven, voluntary process established by NBPTS, certification is achieved through a rigorous,
performance-based assessment that typically takes one to three years to complete and measures
accomplishedd teachers' performance. As part of the process, teachers build a portfolio that includes
student work samples, assignments, videotapes and a thorough analysis of their classroom teaching.
Additionally, teachers are assessed through national testing on their knowledge of the subjects they
teach.
Judy Sumrall has finished the National Board Certification in one year. She has certified in
Early Childhood through Young Adulthood in Library Media.
After Judy McLeod Sumrall graduated from Dixie County High School, she received her
Bachelor of Arts Degree from Southeastern College in Lakeland, and earned her Master's Degree in
Media and Learning Resources from NOVA University.
Mrs. Sumrall began her teaching career at Lakeland Christian School where she taught third
grade for two years. She then returned to her Alma Mater, Dixie County High School in 1975 to
teach English. Mrs. Sumrall taught English for eight years before becoming the media specialist at
DCHS, a position she has held for the past 21 years.
The School Board and Superintendent have the privilege to recognize Judy Sumrall for her
accomplishment of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher.

American
Legion News
Post 91 met on Thursday,
January 18, in the regular
monthly meeting, preceded by
the Post's Donation Dinner, a
delicious spaghetti dinner,
provided by Robert Bennett
and his wife ( the cook of this
great dinner). A number of the
Post 91 Legion family was
present at this meal and good
conversations were being
enjoyed. Post 91 has this
dinner before the monthly
meeting and it is an "All You
Can Eat" meal for a donation
to the Post. The usual
donation suggested is $5.00
per person, but you can make a
larger one if you choose too,
"all donations gratefully
received". This is a fun way of
fund raising and is open to
everyone in the community,
allowing anyone to come see
what Post 91 and the Legion
Family has to offer. The
building is available for a
donation fee for parties,
meetings and such. The Legion
Family is available to help
veterans and their families as
well as the community as a
whole.
Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Lt. Daniel Slaughter spoke to
the Legionnaires at Thursday's
meeting about Identity Theft
and how to prevent it. Lt.
Slaughter encouraged
everyone to watch their bank
statements closely, looking for
anything unusual, to keep your
"PIN" secure, as well as your
Social Security Number, and
the SSNs of your children as
well. Lt. Slaughter strongly
suggested that we ALL make
use of the annual credit report
option. Three major credit
report companies will give you
one free credit report per year.
Remember our Armed
Forces all around the world
each day in your thoughts and
prayers,
and here at home, watch over
our Legionnaires, veterans,
widows and the families of
those called to active duty in
service to America, helping out
whenever and wherever we
can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, Post 149

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 2007


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Mardin
The man behind 'The Gator Slam'
All you Gator-Haters have a right to be
aggravated.
In this weird juxtaposition of planets in the
universe, the University of Florida has found
itself on the role of world dominance among
college athletic teams, ranked No. I in the two
major sports.
Bad enough that the Gators have won back-to-
back national championships in basketball and
football, but now Billy Donovan's No. I ranked
team has a chance to complete the National
SChampionship Slam, or Trifecta.
SBut there is hope yet for you Gator-Haters.
Enjoying such prosperity is one thing, but holding on to it
- is quite another.
After making it back to No. I last Monday, the Florida
basketball team nearly blew a 25-point lead Saturday at the
O'Connell Center in Gainesville, allowing Mississippi back
in the game before finally rolling over the Rebels, 79-70.
The odds of Florida repeating as NCAA hoops champ are
not favorable, since winning six games in March is no easy
feat, but just being poised for the run has created an aura of
excitement unprecedented in this state's college sports
history.
There is a close camaraderie between Urban
Meyer and Donovan, as well as the players on their teams.
This has galvanized the student body and Gator fans.
Meanwhile, both programs continue to soar and reap the
benefits in recruiting, as well as help boost alumni
Contributions. Money fuels the winning.
Donovan is due for a raise, which he turned down
a: t the beginning of the year as a commitment to his players
Swho eschewed fat NBA contracts to come back. Meyer will
be paid big bonuses for winning the SEC and national
titles, but will also be getting a new contract soon.
The price for outstanding football coaches in the SEC just
W ent up (and not that Alabama's overpayment of Nick
Saban didn't also create inflation).
Director of Athletics Jeremy Foley told me last
week he would waste no time in keeping his coaches well
compensated. "We believe in being pro-active," Foley said.
All of a sudden Foley, who took a lot of heat for the
hiring and firing of Ron Zook, is the "genius" among
college sports administrators.
So what's his secret to hiring national championship
coaches?
"Sometimes your instincts are right and sometimes
they are wrong," Foley said of his decisions on Meyer and
Donovan. "I've been at it a long time. You've got to get a
sense of what will work on campus. In football and men's
basketball, our instincts were right this time."
When asked the traits that Donovan and Meyer had
in common as championship traits, Foley said:
"Their work ethic. These guys do their jobs 24/7.
Even when they are on vacation, Blackberrys are going and
cell phones are ringing. In this game, it's all about players
and you have to have the athletes. They are relentless in
recruiting.
"They are both very well organized. They both put
together great staffs.
"And they have great passion for what they do. That

translates to the court and to the field. And they are a lot
alike in that respect."
Meanwhile, Foley's name is being bounced around
the sports world as an administrative genius. He laughed
when I told him one talk show host suggested he should be
running an NFL franchise. "I'm an athletic
director," Foley said. "I don't know
"1':'i;ii, anything professional sports franchise. I
:, like what I'm doing."
However, he did admit that if his
S beloved Boston Red Sox called, he might
A be inclined to return the call.
SQuick Jump Start
1. I'm not ashamed to stay I am rooting
for the Saints today, even though I think
the Bears will win the NFC title game. (I
also like the Colts over the Patriots.)
2. What's the over/under on the number of days Mike Vick
will have in Atlanta after his latest escape at the Miami
Airport, being nabbed for suspected drug paraphernalia?
3. This is how grim it is for the Raider Nation: Latest to
turn down Al Davis is USC quarterback coach Steve
Sarkasian.
4. Good for FSU, bolstering Bobby Bowden's staff with the
hiring of offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher and bringing
back deposed N.C. State Chuck Amato as linebackers
coach.
5. Phil Mickelson has melted off 30 pounds, put on 15
pounds of muscle, enrolled in martial arts and worked on
his drives so who do you think he is tracking?
Short Stuff
Talk about balance: Billy Donovan's starting five
each averages in the low double figures, with the top scorer
(Taurean Green) and the fifth place one (Lee Humphrey)
only three points apart ... Ex-Gator coach Rod Broadway,
most recently head coach at North Carolina Central, is the
new man at Grambling ... The reason UF quarterback Tim
Tebow plays like a linebacker is because he played that
position for a year in high school.
Nothing but 'Net
(With a little help from Buddy's cyberfriends)
Buddy's Believe It Or Not
(But don't ask him to prove it)
1. A tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion will make it
instantly go mad and sting itself to death.
2. The mask used by Michael Myers in the
original "Halloween" was a Captain Kirk's mask painted
white.
3. If you have three quarters, four dimes, and four pennies,
you have $1.19. You also have the largest amount of money
in coins without being able to make change for a dollar.
Bumper Stickers, Signs or T-Shirts
1. I will conquer my procrastination problem. Just you
wait. .
2. If you want something done, tell a man he's too old to
do it.
3. Change is good. You go first.
Today's Proverb
Old age is when former classmates are so gray and
wrinkled and bald, they don't recognize you.
And good morning ...
...To all you NBA bad boys-thugs-gangstas. One of these
days if the league goes down in flames, maybe then you'll
understand the destruction of the fan base which you
helped create.

FWC Weekly Report
January 12-18, 2007
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.
NORTH CENTRAL REGION
BRADFORD COUNTY
Officer Chip Butler and Lt. Gary Knowles conducted a vessel
inspection at Crosby Lake Boat ramp. During the inspection, the
officers noted two boating safety related violations. While Butler
issued the operator a citation for insufficient personal floatation
devices, Knowles obtained a Florida identification card from the
passenger who appeared to be intoxicated. Records check on the
passenger showed an active warrant through Bradford County for
Writ of Attachment. The passenger was arrested on the warrant
and transported to the Bradford County Jail.
Officer Cromwell Letcher and Lt. Gary Knowles inspected a
vessel occupied by four waterfowl hunters in Rowell Lake. During
a license and boating safety inspection, two passengers from New
York State were found to be hunting without obtaining non-
resident hunting licenses or state waterfowl permits. Three boating
safety related violations were also noted on the vessel. Four
citations and four warnings were issued to the occupants.
CITRUS COUNTY
Officer John Jones worked a shrimp zone patrol detail based
on commercial stone crabber complaints of shrimpers trawling in
the closed zones. One shrimper was observed dragging trawls in a
Closed zone and upon retrieving the nets, three traps were found in
"the trawls. The subject was charged with the violations.
Citrus County Officers worked "Operation Mermaid" over the
weekend. The high traffic manatee zones were targeted resulting
in numerous warnings and citations. Unrelated activity included
two resource cases for undersize fish and one Boating Under the
Influence arrest.
CLAY COUNTY
Officer Michael Heath was patrolling Jennings Forest when he
encountered eight ATVs operating in the area. Heath stopped the
ATVs and issued the operators citations for operating an ATV in a
closed area.
COLUMBIA COUNTY
Officer Todd Hoyle was patrolling Columbia County when he
heard the Sheriffs Office responding to Kirby Pit, relating to a
Strespass complaint. Kirby Pit is a property owned by DEP that has
Been closed to the public for more than a year. The five trespassers
(4 males and 1 female), were operating ATVs and eventually made
their way to one of the many bar pits to swim. Hoyle found the
: trespassers and issued two trespass citations to the two male adults
:and three trespassing warnings to the remaining juveniles.
Reserve Officer Bill Sargent and Hunter Safety Instructors
Rudy Reimsnyder and Rob Kent attended an event labeled "Get to
Know Your Community" at Lowes in Lake City January 13.
Officer Leslie Sharp also attended and assisted with answering the
crowd's questions. Sargent handled our Boating Safety portion of
the presentation and Rudy and Rob handled the Hunter Safety
portion. They collectively spoke to approximately 500 attendees
over the course of four hours. They represented our agency and our
mission well. This event was the first one held and the manager
said due to its success, they want to hold it every year.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY
Officer Dwain Mobley was attempting to contact a landowner
on a night hunting complaint when he came upon three very
suspicious individuals along the roadway. On the initial search of
the area, Mobley found a flashlight. Officer Dennis Sharp came to
assist and discovered a blood trail and a freshly killed doe deer.
The deer apparently had been killed earlier in the afternoon.
Officer Rodney Boone also came to assist with the suspect
interviews and statements. Mobley issued two of the individuals
citations for taking antlerless deer during the closed season.
MADISON COUNTY
Officer Clay Huff was conducting surveillance for night
hunters along US 90 in Madison County. During that time he
watched two vehicles pull off the highway near his location. When
the vehicles stopped, two subjects exited and proceeded into an
adjacent farm field. Huff followed the two subjects into the field
where they stopped at a freshly shot button buck deer. As the two
subjects were standing over the deer, Huff announced his presence.
Huff took both subjects back to their buddies, who were waiting
along the highway. A subsequent interview revealed the subjects
had shot the buck earlier and were returning to pick it up. They
were cited for taking deer with gun and light and discharging a
-firearm from a county road.
SUWANNEE COUNTY

Beginners Luck!


Receives Florida

Green Lodging Certification
--Environmentally friendly hotels conserve resources, save
money and attract customers--
STEINHATCHEE The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) today welcomed the Steinhatchee River Inn to
the Florida Green Lodging Program. The voluntary state initiative
provides the lodging industry with technical assistance, and
encourages hotels and motels to adopt cost-saving 'green' practices
that reduce waste and conserve natural resources.
"With almost 50 percent of Florida's visitors staying in hotels,
the lodging industry can play an important role in protecting our
environment," said DEP Northeast District Assistant Director Bill
Green. "By reducing water use, conserving energy, improving air
quality and decreasing solid waste, hotel guests contribute to the
state's efforts to protect, restore and conserve Florida's natural
resources."
The Steinhatchee River Inn has implemented a linen and towel
reuse program and installed low-flow showerheads and faucets to
conserve water. In addition, the inn conserves energy through
energy-efficient light bulbs, sensors and timers for all outdoor
lighting. The facility also conducts preventative maintenance on
all air conditioners to improve air quality. All paper products used
are made with 100 percent recycled content, and the inn uses
biodegradable paper cups for coffee with corn interiors rather than
a petroleum base.
"By changing just a few of our work habits here at .the inn, we
can do our part to conserve water and honor native habitats in
Florida," said Steinhatchee River Inn owner Loretta Fowler.
"When we tell our guests about the methods we use here, we hope
they take a little bit of our 'green ways' home with them and start
thinking about making some new habits of their own."
Launched in March 2004, the Florida Green Lodging Program
establishes environmental guidelines for hotels and motels to
conserve natural resources and prevent pollution. As reward for
designation, Florida is recommending Green Lodges to companies
and trade organizations seeking environmentally conscious lodging
and convention facilities. With the addition of the Steinhatchee
River Inn, the program has 21 hotels certified, with 20 in the
process of becoming certified.

Certification program or to locate a Florida Green Lodge, visit

FWC Scores

Antlers In

Lake City
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) reserve
officers will score deer antlers

The scoring will be from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 27 at
Milton's Country Store, 12049

Florida deer taken in previous
seasons. The deer must have
been taken in Florida by fair
chase methods.
Antlers scoring 100 points
or more qualify for the Florida
Buck Registry and the owner

Florida and to give recognition
to Florida hunters. The
minimum antler score
necessary to qualify is 100
Boone and Crockett inches for
typical antlers and 125 for non-

Free Hunter Safety Courses

Offered Through FWC
Don't wait ... get educated early by attending one of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) free
pre-spring turkey season hunter safety courses.
Although hunter safety courses are offered in every county
throughout the year, FWC volunteer instructors are hunting like
everyone else during the season and classes are limited after
October.
"It's a good idea to take a course early in the year while there
are many available. Classes offered late in the year quickly reach
student capacity and it may be difficult to enroll in a class close to
hunting season," said Steve Robbins, regional hunter safety
coordinator.
A large number of courses offered in February and March, just
prior to spring turkey season, are generally lightly attended.
Some are traditional classes and some are online/CD
courses. Interested hunters can check out
http://MyFWC.com/huntered or call the Lake City Regional
Office at (386) 758-0525 for more information.
The classes being offered are:
Alachua County: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 17. Participants must
complete the online course or CD course prior to attending this field
day and bring the final results to the range. The first portion of the
field day will be from 8 a.m. to noon at the Westside Baptist Church,
1000 W. Newberry Road, Gainesville. The range portion is from 1 to 5
p.m. at the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office range off U.S. 129 in
Trenton.
Bradford County: From 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 20, 22, 24, 27
and March 1 at the Bradford Vocational Technical Institute in
Starke. Participants must attend all dates.
Clay County: From 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 5, 7, 12 and 14.
The range day will be Feb. 17 at the Ag Center off State road
16 in Green Cove Springs.
Gilchrist County: From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 17.
Participants must complete the online course or CD course
prior to this range day and bring the final results to the range
at the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office range off U.S. 129 in
Trenton.
Lafayette County: From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.'Feb. 10 and
11 at the Mayo Correctional facility, 8784 W. U.S. 27.
Taylor County: From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 24 and 25
at the Taylor Correctional facility in Perry. Participants must
attend both days.
Students younger than age 16 must be accompanied by an
adult. All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of
charge. Students need to bring a pen or pencil and paper. To pre-
register, students can visit the Web site or call the regional office.
"The FWC Hunter Safety Course is now available online and
on compact disc. Hunters can take a majority of the classroom
instruction without leaving home before taking part in a field day
that includes live-firing instruction on a shooting range to earn
certification," Robbins said.
"At the field day, students must complete a standard written
examination and are expected to demonstrate many skills such as
loading and unloading different types of firearms, safely crossing
fences and other activities that all safe, responsible hunters should
be able to complete," Robbins said.
The interactive Internet and CD-ROM courses were developed
as a means of increasing accessibility to hunter safety programs.
Field days are offered throughout the state. The traditional
classroom courses are offered in all of Florida's counties.
Families with young children are encouraged to attend a
traditional course. Student interaction with the instructors may
assist the child in better understanding the course content, and the
instructor can answer student questions, which cannot be
accomplished with the online or CD versions.
Students who wish to complete the alternative course using the
CD-ROM method will need to contact the regional office at least
two weeks prior to the scheduled course field day. A CD-ROM
with instructions will be mailed at the student's request.

MDA Seeks Volunteers For 2007

Summer Camp
Tallahassee, FL The Muscular Dystrophy Association is
searching for summer camp volunteers who are looking for a
rewarding and memorable experience. Volunteer counselors are
needed to help young people with ncuromuscular diseases enjoy a
fun-filled MDA summer camp July 6 13, 2007 at Cape San
Bias, in Port St. Joe, FL.
Volunteer counselors must be at least 16 years old and able to
lift and care for a young person between the ages of 6 and 21.
Each counselor becomes a companion to a camper with a
neuromuscular disease. Counselors help their campers with daily
activities such as eating, bathing and dressing, and in recreational
activities such as arts and crafts, swimming and horseback riding.
"MDA summer camp is the event that our kids think about
year-round," said MDA Regional Coordinator Lisa Heil. "For one
week out of the year, they get to be in an environment where
having a neuromuscular disease is the norm, not the exception.
They have the chance to make friendships and memories that will
.last a lifetime."
Heil noted that volunteer counselors often say camp is a
magical and memorable time. "It's such a family environment and
a time to make friends for life," she said. "It truly is the best week
of the year!"
At no charge to families, MDA's summer camp program
serves more than 4,000 campers nationwide in some 90 weeklong
sessions. Last year, over 4,700 volunteers helped make this all
possible.
To obtain a volunteer application or learn about other ways to
support MDA's summer camp program, call the local MDA
office in Tallahassee, FL at (850) 681-6763, or call (800) 572-
1.717. More information about summer camp volunteers can be
found on the MDA summer camp pages at

Springhouse Quilter's News
Elaine Zahan as she displays a "whole cloth" quiltedi wall
hanging quilt.
Springhouse Quilters have had many workshops and classes to
teach member new quilt blocks and quilt techniques. A new
member, Elaine Zahan, a beginning quilter has been working on a
"whole cloth" quilt. These quilts may be small for a wall hanging
or large enough to fit a king size bed. The technique is the actual
quilting onto a fabric that has no piecing. It is called a "whole
cloth" quilt since there is no quilting design other than the design
made by either hand or machine quilting directly onto the fabric.
Traditionally, these quilts are most likely to be found in all white
and used for bed coverings or table coverings. What makes the
quilt beautiful is the quilting design.
The beginning quilting classes began for Springhouse day new
members on January 18 with Diane Schweder providing an
orientation of fabric and tools that are used in quilting. The night
group beginner classes began on January 23 with the same
presentation by Diane. The classes will continue through March
20. Each week, a different quilt block with a different technique
will be taught. It is the desire of Springhouse Quilters to teach
and preserve the art of quilting by continuing to provide the basic
quilting classes to our new members.
For additional information on Springhouse Quilters, contact
Jan Litzinger, 463-3971, or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Audience For UF's

Radio Program

"Gardening In A

Minute" Continues

To Grow
By Terri Lang ord
Last October the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) Center for Landscape Ecology and
Conservation, launched a new radio series
"Gardening in a Minute", which airs on WUFT-
FM (89.1) and WJUF-FM (90.1), Monday
through Sunday, once at 2:00 p.m. and then
again at 6:18 p.m.; covering 19 counties
between the two stations. The popular series is
geared for Florida gardeners and deals with
common issues, with tips from area experts.
Master Gardener Tom Wichman, who hosts
the one-minute segment, noted that according to
the National Gardening Association an
estimated 91 million households participated in
one of more types of do-it-yourself indoor and
outdoor lawn and garden activities in 2005.
Lawn and garden retail sales totaled $35.208
billion in 2005.
With gardening having such an impact on
our economy, (also known as Florida's green
industry) the Center for Landscape Ecology and
Conservation (CLEC) at University of Florida
(UF) IAS was able to secure 1.4 million in
recurring funds for educational projects such as
"Gardening in a Minute."
The CLEC was formed to protect Florida's
natural resources through research and
education. "Gardening in a Minute" not only
give great tips about caring for lawns, scrubs,
trees, flowers, and wildlife, it also educates
listeners in ways in which we can all protect our
water resources.


On Course For Career Success
As A Merchant Mariner
(NAPSA)-While there are few
guarantees in life, one vocational
training program actually guaran-
tees its graduates an initial job.
The training center, located in
Piney Point, Md., is affiliated with
the Seafarers International Union
(SIU) and its contracted companies.
Its mission is to provide the train-
ing needed for a successful career as
a United States Merchant Mariner.
There is no tuition or room and
board costs for the entry level pro-
gram. Students, however, are ex-
pected to cover the cost of travel to
the facility, clothing and pre-entry
.medical screening.
Established in 1967, The Paul
Hall Center for Maritime Training
and Education offers the most U.S.
'Coast Guard-approved courses of
:any maritime school in the nation.
SThe center offers everything
9pm entry training to license
peparation to academic support
land more. As vocational training for
'U.S. mariners seemingly becomes
more important each year, the cen-
ter provides state-of-the-art school-
ing. For example, an engine depart-
ment simulator at the school
provides training for engine room
watchkeeping, diesel propulsion
,and electrical power plants.
: Additionally, the simulator
includes an auxiliary system,
machinery simulator, plus crane
:and liquid cargo simulation.
Students also have opportuni-
'ties to benefit from a bridge simu-
lator, which makes it possible to
upgrade training in voyage plan-
ning and execution, coastal and
offshore navigation, collision
avoidance and search and rescue
operations.
Training is also available in
bridge watchkeeping procedures,
oil spill response management,
.culinary arts and bridge team
:management.
Recently, the school opened a
Coast Guard-approved safety school
at Barber's Point, Honolulu,

you missed one.) In February Wichman will
talk about Cyclamen, hobby greenhouses,
subterranean termites, Geraniums, propagation
of bedding plants and much more.

Wichman noted that while the show and
website are excellent places for general
information about gardening in Florida, your
best source for advice with issues that are

Houghton and she can be reached at 498-1237.

Local Attorney

Authors Third
Novel


The third novel written by
Pierce Kelley, an attorney in the
.i- Lake City office of Three Rivers

: released by iUniverse
Publications last week. It is
entitled A Plenanr Indulgence
and is based on a true story that
occurred in Tampa when a
restaurant owner chased after a
man who had robbed him at
i gunpoint and killed him. The
Hillsborough County State's
Attorney's office charged the man with the crime of Manslaughter
after a lengthy investigation. The case became front page news in
the Tampa community.
All of Mr. Kelley's novels have been in the legal/courtroom
drama genre. His first novel, Fistfight at the L and M Saloon,
involved a fight at the L and M bar in Cedar Key and addressed the
legal issue of an accessory after the fact. His second novel, A Very
Fine Line, was a story about a high school football coach who had
a few beers after celebrating a state championship victory and
accidentally struck a man jogging along the side of a rural two-lane
road when blinded by the lights of an oncoming vehicle. Because
he was over the legal limit of .08, the man was charged with DUI
Manslaughter. The book takes readers from the incident to a
verdict and explains the legal procedure involved in an entertaining
and easy to read story.
Mr. Kelley has also authored a legal text, Civil Litigation: A
Case Study, and a how-to instructional book, Introducing Children
to the Game of Tennis. His books are available through local
bookstores or by calling 1-800-AUTHORS.


Hawaii. The satellite facility trains
students for new job opportunities
aboard U.S.-flag cruise ships, while
helping meet the increased demand
for trained mariners from Hawaii.
The Seafarers International
Union, Atlantic, Gulf, Lakes and
Inland Water District, AFL-CIO
represents unlicensed United
States merchant mariners sailing
aboard U.S.-flag vessels into the
deep sea, Great Lakes and inland


trades. The union also represents
licensed U.S. mariners in the Great
Lakes and inland sectors.
Seafarers typically enjoy compet-
itive pay, freedom in scheduling,
good medical coverage for them-
selves and their families, a pension
plan and a contract that spells out
safe working conditions, vacation
benefits and more.

Florida

Recognizes

State Arbor

Day
--Native trees maintain
wildlife habitats and
environmental beauty of
Sunshine State--
TALLAHASSEE In
celebration of Florida's Arbor
Day today, the Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) is encouraging
Floridians to protect the state's
natural resources by planting
native trees like the sable
palm, Florida's state tree.
Native species protect the
environmental balance and
.beauty of the Sunshine State
;by preventing the spread of
: invasive plants.
S"From towering trees to
sinall shrubs, Florida has more
than 400 species of native
vegetation," said DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"By encouraging the growth of
indigenous plants, Floridians
conserve water resources,
reduce soil erosion, improve
-air quality and protect our
aquatic ecosystems."
Florida is home to several
Species of invasive vegetation,
- including the Australian pine,
Schinaberry and Brazilian
Pepper. Invasive, non-native
plants inhabit almost 15
percent of Florida's public
conservation lands and
waterways, impacting native
species and wildlife habitats.
By planting native vegetation
Floridians can protect the
state's natural woodlands,
hardwood hammocks and
mangrove forests.
In 1970, President Richard
Nixon proclaimed the last
Friday in April as National
Arbor Day. Since then, every
state in the nation and many
countries around the world
have designated its own Arbor
Day. In Florida, late winter is
an ideal time for planting
native trees, making Florida's
SArbor Day the third Friday in
January, weeks earlier than the
national observance.
For more information about


native Florida vegetation, visit

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 2007


Expect

Miracles!

....I Received
Mine!
By Ronald E. Brock
Everyone in the community is
invited to attend special revival
services at the Cross City Church
of God on January 28 31 and
hear Ronald E. Brock tell how
God has brought him out of the
Devil's hands of drug addiction
and to a new life, living for God.
Brock was a minister of the
gospel who became addicted to
prescription drugs and he will tell
his tale of self-destruction cause
by this addiction.
The story begins as told by
Ronald E. Brock -- The sign over
the front entrance door "At Last
There's Hope" caught my
attention but I still didn't know
how I really felt. I was pretty
weak, even frail, already feeling
the effects of acute malnutrition, a
self-diagnosis later confirmed by
doctors at the Cambria County
Hospital in Johnstown,
Pennsylvania. It was there they
saved my life. That is how 1 came
into Peniel Drug and Alcohol
Treatment Center.
My blood sugar, my heart and
my entire body had been so
abused due to drug addiction I was
barely able to function. In fact, my
short-term memory had been so
devastated it was almost
nonexistent. I couldn't remember
what city, or even what state, I
was in much of the time. I
couldn't remember names, and to
complicate things even further, 1
couldn't even remember Peniel's
daily schedule. In short, I was a
disaster.
After only a few days in
treatment at penile, it was
mandatory that I receive medical
care from the hospital. Too sick, to
disoriented, too far-gone... death
was hanging around me like a fog.
Satan did, in fact, seem to have
my "number" this time for sure.
However, Dr. Marion Spellman
stepped in, along with the God
who has always loved me and
provided for me even in my
times of disobedience, even while
Satan was premeditating the
murder of my life, Dr. Spellman,
founder and CEO of Peniel,
stubbornly refused to let me go!
After spending 10 days in the
hospital, my body began to level
out and return to at least a
facsimile of normalcy. Dr.
Spellman told my family and the
doctors, "Give us a month with
him, and let's see what happens."
The unseen shadow over Dr.
Spellman's countenance was
Almighty God, who seconded her
faith-inspired motion. Like Moses,
she "endured as seeing Him who
is invisible" (Hebrews 11:27).
There I was, broken and somewhat
confused, yet headed straight back
to Peniel, where a staff of nurses
and counselors awaited by faith
for me to return, expecting another
miracle for one of Peniel's clients.
In just two months, after eating
a well-balanced diet,
commensurate with
comprehensive care, and anointed
teaching/preaching, I got my first
miracle my memory returned
instantly. Snap... just like that!
When my memory returned, I
became instantly eager to enter all
the classes available to me as a
brand-new client/student at Peniel.
Back to school at my age! That
fact alone was exciting and very
challenging to me.
The teaching staff at Peniel
has an international, cosmopolitan
touch that ranges from the
Bahamian-born Angelique
Bernard, who teaches the always-
popular "Journey to Me" class, to
the former tough Marine William
Henry's indispensable class called
"Healing for Damaged Emotions."
Besides his educational
qualifications, Mr. Henry, a proud
Peniel graduate, received a purple
heart for his action in the Vietnam
War and later served as part of an
elite contingent of special agents
assigned to protect the safety of
the president of the United States
as well as foreign dignitaries.
The veteran teaching staff at
Peniel is an adept, skilled core of
devout Christians and
professionals working under the
close tutelage of Drs. Harold and
Marion Spellman. In fact, Pastor
Harold Spellman's two-hour
Tuesday class titled "Access to
Spiritual Growth" alone is


great to assist a client in
recovering from the deadly effects
of chemical dependency.
Personalized counseling is a
priority at Peniiel, occurring
weekly or daily when necessary.
My counselor, Associate
Pastor llenry Davis, was strict, yet
concerned and caring, in his
difficult, almost Herculean task of
first leading me back to god and
then directing me out of the
wilderness of addictive behavior.
God used this kind man to help
save my life and to restore a hope
in me for my future. Do not
mistake kindness for courage,
however, when it comes to dealing
with the cunning behavioral
patterns of drug addicts and
alcoholics. The penile program is
in every way a no-nonsense
approach to dealing with all
aspects of addiction.
Not only do I now have hope
for my future, but I also have a
happiness that can only come at
the moment in life when one
"slays the Goliath of addiction"
with the spiritual tools and godly
offensive weapons available only
at a place like Peniel, which
means "1 have seen god face to
face, and my life is preserved"
(Genesis 32:30).
Many miracles have taken
place in my life here at Peniel in
the last 13 months. Now in
aftercare, 1 continue to develop my
character with the same wonderful
people God used so mightily to


'07 Chevy Aveo


help restore my life to me. I am
committed to taking back what the
Enemy has stolen from me.
Oh, yes, about the famous sign
over the front door entrance of
penile "At Last There's Ilope"-
well, it's still there... and it's still
true. Every day at Peniel, we
expect miracles.
Pastor Ed Ivey and the church
family invites you come out to
these special services if you or a
loved one is addicted to drugs or
alcohol. It could be just the
message you need to change your
life forever.

absolutely worth the cost of
entering Peniel as a client/student.
The first real principle that Pastor
Spellman got across to me was
something that I had lost in my
life because of the collateral
damage and devastating effects of
my addiction. He awakened me to
the fact that God is more
concerned about my character that
about anything else.
Every class has been for me
informative, interesting and
educational. I will never forget the
principles and precepts taught to
me by the teachers and counselors
