By Briar Keathley
Suwannee Water and Sewer District broke ground last Tuesday on a $5.3 million water system
improvement project. The project, made possible by $2.46 million in funding from the United States
Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development and $2.92 million from the State of Florida,
will involve the construction of a new water treatment plant, the upgrading of existing wells and the
construction of a ground water storage tank.
"This will dramatically improve the quality of drinking water in the community of Suwannee,"
said Suwannee Water and Sewer District Manager Tony Johns.
Johns explained that upon completion of the water system improvement project, in conjunction
with the water distribution upgrade project, Suwannee drinking water will once again be in
compliance with both Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency regulations.
Over the years, the District's existing water treatment plant has gradually become "outdated,"

By Terri Langford
The American Civil Liberties Union of
Florida (ACLU) recently filed a lawsuit at the
federal courthouse in Gainesville, FL, sighting
that Dixie County has violated the
Establishment Clause of the United States
Constitution by placing a monument, bearing
the Ten Commandants on the county's
courthouse steps.
Since its placement, there has been much
debate from both sides, with the majority of
citizens in Dixie County in favor of keeping the
monument on the courthouse steps and the
majority of liberal activists from outside of the
county in favor of upholding the laws of our
Constitution that state there must be separation
of church and state. With the lawsuit in place,
the next step to take will be in the hands of the
Dixie County Commission.
The "establishment of religion" clause of the
First Amendment can be summed up to the
following: Neither a state nor the federal
government can set up a church. Neither can
pass laws which aid one religion, aid all
religions, or prefer one religion over another.
Neither can force nor influence a person to go to
or to remain away from church against his will
or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in
any religion. No person can be punished for
entertaining or professing religious beliefs or
disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-
attendance. No tax in any amount, large or
small, can be levied to support any religious
activities or institutions, whatever they may be
called, or whatever form they may adopt to
teach or practice religion. Neither a state nor the

Triumph The Church & Kingdom Of God In

Christ Designated As County Historical Site


:By Terri Langford
With Black History Month
'celebrated during the month of
:February, it was only fitting
that earlier in the month the
Triumph The Church &
Kingdom of God In Christ
hold the unveiling of the
SHistorical Marker that
commemorates the church as
one of Dixie County's oldest
structures. Church members
and special guests, including
family members from the
founders of the church, Bishop
.R.C. and Mother Beulah
Glanton, attended the
celebration.
It was a beautiful day and
Elder Nadine Broughtin started
the celebration, appropriately
with a prayer and uplifting
song.
Following Elder Broughtin,
Professor Prince B. Oliver, Sr.
spoke about the importance of
the church in his life as well as
that of his family. Oliver
himself has been recognized as

Federal Government can, openly or secretly,
participate in the affairs of any religious
organizations or groups and vice versa.
One case that is referred to often is where
former Chief Justice of Alabama, Roy Moore,
installed a monument of the Ten
Commandments in the state judicial building in
2001. In 2003, he was ordered by a federal
judge to remove the monument. Moore argued
against the order, stating his right to
acknowledge God. However, the courts used the
separation of church and state argument that is
listed in the establishment clause as grounds for
removal of the monument on the government
owned property. In keeping with the clause, the
federal court also noted that Moore had the right
to acknowledge God as a private person and to
place the monument on his privately owned
land.
The Dixie lawsuit is the newest case to be
filed in the federal court system. In a press
release issued by the ACLU, Howard Simon,
Executive Director of the ACLU of Florida
stated: "Government does not have the right to
tell Americans which God to worship. The Ten
Commandments are an important part of the
Judeo-Christian religious tradition and should be
read from the pulpit of churches and synagogues
- but the' Constitution prohibits the government
from endorsing religious messages such as this
one. In addition to the commonly held secular
commandments about murder, stealing, an
honoring one's mother and father, the Ten
Commandments also include strictly religious
statements."

Youths Start Structure Fire With

Cigarette: Destroys Building
Y~a,...," :. dl~t.:-: : 4qA.


A fully involved structure fire destroyed a Cross City building
Sunday.
According to the report, the Cross City Volunteer Fire
Department was dispatched to 226 N.E. 196 Ave. around 4:30 p.m.
Upon arrival, crews found the building to be completely destroyed.
After completing an investigation, it became known that the
owner's 14-year-old son and a 14-year-old friend were smoking in
the building and while putting out the cigarette, they started a small
fire. The boys attempted to extinguish the fire by covering it with
dirt and leaves. Thinking the fire was put out, they left the
building. Minutes later, they found the building fully involved. The
fire also spread to two adjacent properties causing minor damage
to a boat.
No injuries were reported.


County Receives

$33,250 Fire Act Grant
By Terri Langford
Darian Brown, Division Chief of Fire Services for Dixie
County, announced last week his department had received word of
the approval of a $33,250. Fire Act Grant. The monies for the grant
come through the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) Homeland Security and will be used for the purchase of a
new air compressor.
Brown noted that currently the county and city fire stations are
using a compressor that is over 25 years old. When that system
was purchased there were a total of five fire fighting SCBA (self
contained breathing apparatus) tanks in the county and city
combined. Today there are five stations in the county and one in
the city, with a total of 70 air tanks. The air will also service dive
team operations.
Brown stated that he had applied for the 95/5 match grant, last
March, 2006. The monies are expected to come down within the
next two months and the 5 percent match is already in the budget.
"We have needed a larger system for some time now," stated
Brown. "Having a good clean air supply for our fire fighters is
important," he added.
Brown stated that the old system, which still works, will be
used as a backup.

Did nothing else happen last week?
Last week, Anna Nicole Smith's celebrity status moved from
the supermarket tabloids to the front pages of the mainstream
media. Unfortunately, she wasn't around to enjoy it.
S Please don't misunderstand; I am not suggesting that the death
of Anna Nicole Smith was such an insignificant event that it
should have been ignored by the press. Obviously, the public was
interested. After all, you can't wait in line to check out with your
groceries without at least having spotted her on the front pages
while negotiating the intellectual vacuum that precedes the cash
register. But the question remains, by what logic was she such an
important person that she dominated the headlines and TV news
,broadcasts for most of the week?
When I want information on what's happening in this world, I
will admit that I have a preference for FOX News. "Fair and
balanced," as they claim? Well, if they lean to the right a tad, the
other cable news outlets, the exalted New York Times, its plethora
;of clones and the major TV network news departments list to the
left like the Good Ship Lollipop with Hillary at the helm.
But last week, it didn't seem to matter which way you leaned,
there was but one lead story, and that was the sudden, mysterious
death of Anna Nicole Smith. Friday night, I tuned in FOX News,
;and there didn't seem to be any other news of interest anywhere in
:the entire 25,000 mile circumference of our alarmingly warming
planet with its unseasonably cold temperatures. I would have
,expected that of the aforementioned left-leaning outlets, but FOX
.News?
In any event, Anna Nicole Smith's resume would seem to
include the following highlights: Playboy's 1993 "Playmate of the
'Year" (Why, oh why, did I have to donate that issue to the public
'library?); having married a rich old man for his money (why else?);
:and having three guys claiming to be the father of her 5 month-old
,daughter, even though the child's true biological father could have
.been her geriatric late husband, who had made a few deposits at a
Sperm bank when he was still able.
Times sure have changed. I can remember when, if there were
three possible candidates for a paternity suit, they'd each be
accusing the other two, not stepping up to take the blame
,themselves. Men sure have gotten to be a lot more chivalrous in
:recent times. (All right, if there was a dead man to. blame, they'd
'all be accusing him, but why not? I said chivalrous, not stuck on
*stupid!)
Actually, Anna Nicole's untimely demise did share the
spotlight with a story boasting a similar level of prurient interest.
Lisa Marie Nowak, a 43 year-old married mother of three kids,
also a US Navy captain and an astronaut who flew on last July's
:Discovery mission, was arrested in Orlando and charged with
'attempted murder.
We are told that Nowak drove 900 miles non-stop from Texas
,to confront a woman whom she suspected was getting too
interested in a guy she obviously had the hots for. It seems she
'was in such a big hurry that she made the trip wearing diapers so
that she wouldn't have to stop to go potty along the way.
Let's see, that's a 15 hour trip if you average 60 miles per hour.
All right, one would need the Depends. Now, who makes a car that
Will go 900 miles on one tank of gas? ("Non-stop," remember?)
Someone raised the question, "Why didn't she just take a com-
rmercial flight? I expect it could have had something to do with the
"MACE canister, the air rifle, the steel mallet, the 4 inch knife, the
,rubber tubing and the large garbage bags she brought along. Not
,exactly conventional carry-on in this day of heightened airport
;security, wouldn't you say?
SWell, now you know the news for the first full week of
February.

unsupportable decisions which violate the constitution. However
they set precedent which is then difficult to overturn. It will take a
determined effort to overturn the sophistry, which the courts have
accepted. Of primary importance is that the argument be truthful,
be logical, and reference directly and appropriately back to the
constitution. It bears mentioning that there is no constitutional
right to be shielded from religion. Let us gird for the fight.

SLE. TnE. ADVOCATE FOR


ALL YOUR PRINTING NrEbs


Letter To The Editor
The headline of "Law Of Bible Up Against Law of the Land"
(Tribune Metro edition, February 8, 2007). For that report is
basically incorrect. The correct headline is "The Law of the Land
vs. the ACLU", to wit:
1. The only 'Constitutional law' regarding religion is the 1st
Amendment, which states "Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion ... .". Congress never has
made such a law; ergo its 'opinions' must be limited only to
perceived violations of the 1st Amendment, and to
2. Article 111 of the Northwest Ordinance, signed into law by
President George Washington on August 7, 1789, which reads in
part "Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good
government and the happiness of mankind, schools . shall
forever be encouraged." This Ordinance was furnished to all
colonies and new territories seeking statehood, and the Preamble
of all fifty state Constitutions expresses its gratitude to 'God' (or
terms at the time synonymous with God) for similar reasons
(Virginia names Jesus Christ).
3. In the first case regarding religion to reach the U.S. Supreme
Court (Reynolds v U.S. 1878) when the Mormons argued
polygamy was their 'religious right', the Supreme Court stated it
was not and stated that the U.S. is a "Christian nation". Strong?
Indeed!
4. Unfortunately, the 1947 U.S. Supreme. Court decision
Everson v Board of Education whereby the Court in a 5-4
decision wrongfully bought into the ACLU argument of
Separation of Church and State, in which Justice Hugo Black
cited the letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury
Baptist church more than a century ago which simply discussed a
'wall between church and state', but specifically in the vein of no
intrusion by the government into religion. Said Jefferson, I
reciprocate your kind prayers for protection and blessing of the
common Father and Creator of man ... ". How could a Justice of
the Supreme Court base his opinion on a letter, but ignore the
Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the .Northwest
Ordinance, and many precedents by former Supreme Courts that
stated 'America is a Christian nation"?
There is no rhyme or reason (let alone common sense) to
explain why practices, rulings, laws, Preambles, etc. that have
been time honored since the formation of this nation, has
suddenly in the past several decades done an about face. It has
robbed us of Christmas carols being sung on public sidewalks,
nativity scenes from being displayed in the public square; taken
God and Christmas plays out of our schools (and substituted
'Darwanism'), forced politicians to become wrongfully 'politically
correct' in the face of the Northwest Ordinance, the Declaration of
Independence, and the early cases in which the Supreme Court
opined that the U.S is a "Christian nation".
How the ACLU, whose founders were Communists, and who
supports the North American Man-Boy Love Association, has
robbed the Boys Scouts of America the right to use public
facilities (just to mention a few) has come to wield such negative
influence should be objectionable to all informed American
citizens.
It is with great fervor that family, my friends, and 1 hope Dixie
County prevails in their Constitutional right to keep their Ten
Commandments monument intact and in place. Those who object
need to become better informed,

Letter To The Editor
Religious Monument On The Courthouse Steps
I fully support the right of the people of Dixie County to
express their Christianity by placing the Ten Commandments in
the form of a stone monument on the central cultural edifice of
the County. To wit, the courthouse steps.
But what is more important is, even if I did not support the
right of the people of Dixie County to express their Christianity in
this manner, they still have that right. That right is enshrined in
nothing less than the United States Constitution.
From the first sentence of the first amendment to the
constitution: Congress shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof -
- This is a clear statement that the people have an absolute right
to express their religion. In Dixie County that religion is
Christianity.
When this matter comes before the court, the only thing which
needs to be shown is; The display of this religious monument on
the edifice of the central cultural authority of Dixie County
represents no more and no less than an expression of the
Christianity of the people of Dixie County, and the people will it
to be so.
How can this be accomplished? Perhaps many ways. This I
would propose:
The County Commission of Dixie County convene itself, not
as the County Commission, but as an ad hoc citizen group which
claims that it, by virtue of having .been elected as County
Commissioners, has validity in claiming that it represents the
people of Dixie County, and in that status, does hereby acclaim
that the Ten Commandments Monument on the courthouse steps
is in fact a willful expression of the Christianity of the people of
Dixie County.
To support this acclamation, circulate for signature of
affirmation this affidavit; I here, by my signature affirm that I am
a citizen of Dixie County and the Ten Commandments Monument
on the courthouse steps is an expression of my Christianity and I
support it being there.
OK, so I am no lawyer, so let's consult a lawyer and tend to
the legalisms. But let's git'r done.
As a matter of reassurance to any who might claim skepticism,
the County Commission could in the normal course of going
about it's business issue a proclamation; The Ten Commandments
Monument on the courthouse steps is an expression of the
Christianity of the people of Dixie County. The laws and
ordinances of Dixie County are secular and one's religious
convictions or affiliation is of no concern to Dixie County and are
not a factor in one's dealings with the authorities of Dixie County.
This proclamation could be posted in the vicinity of the
monument.
I believe that these actions if taken, will position Dixie County
to mount a strong defense against the ACLU. It is my considered
opinion that activist atheist agenda driven judges have made

Letter To The Local Crafters,

Quilters And Seamstresses In The :

Tri County Area!
On a recent trip to Selmer, Tennessee, I purchased fabric at tihe-:
local TN Wal-Mart. The attendant asked if I knew that Wal-Mart-
planned to close or phase out most of the fabric departments-i-;
their stores nationwide. When I came home, I checked with ithe
fabric department in the Chiefland Wal-Mart and was told that
yes, Wal-Mart did plan to phase out fabrics as they updated the':
stores, but no definite date had been set for the Chiefland store&:
Since I make historical clothing for re-enactors and purchase,
several hundred yards of fabric per year, losing the local Wal-:
Mart as an economical fabric source will have a negative effect:
on my bottom line. I am sure that there are other crafters, quilters-
and other seamstresses in the area who would likewise .be-
negatively affected. Both of the Wal-Mart employees that I-
spoke with said that if I wanted to see Wal-Mart as a whole, and"
especially the local Wal-Mart, keep the Fabric Department we--
should let management know how this closing would affect us.
If you will be affected by this closing, please make your"
opinion known by contacting the local Chiefland Wal-Mart Store
Manager. The Wal-Mart home office should also be aware of
how this will affect us and we can do that by either calling the"
home office at 1-800-WALMART, or online at
www.WALMART.COM I was told that one Wal-Mart store in'
Georgia reversed it's decision to close their fabric department due
to amount of calls and complaints that they received. If losing.-'
this fabric source will negatively affect you, join me in making:
our voices heard to make sure that the Chiefland Wal-Mart does-
not close their fabric department now or in the future.

Letter To The Editor
In reply to the letter about the Ten Commandments at the
Courthouse being a mistake:
I think it looks just fine where it is. I read it every time I go to
the Courthouse and I can't find any misspelled words on it.
If it was moved, as suggested, it would take no time at all for
the Richard Dempsey's of this world to want it moved again,
maybe even to a museum. I also don't think we need to have a
contest as to its placement. Whoever picked the Courthouse
already won it.
Where the monument is does not give me the implication that a
religion will determine a person's innocence or guilt and to
mention some Islamic societies as an example in the same breath
as the Bible is another insult.
I did not see a Commandment eleven stating the Bible is a legal
code. Did I miss something?
There is nothing in Richard Dempsey's letter I can agree with,
except the last sentence-Think about it, and when you're ready,
move it. So let's discuss this again, in say, about 300 years! May
God bless you.

Living In A Dying World
My Prayer For The Ten Commandments
Lord, you said, we have not,
Because we ask not.
So this I ask of thee,
The Ten Commandments, on the Courthouse Square,
For you to protect from these,
That is them, that would remove it,
So they could prove a point.
That you are still in charge here
In charge of the do's and don't
Now this lawsuit that is started,
To you is no big deal.
And I will continue praying,
For you to show the removers,
That you are truly real.
That the Ten Commandments.
Were written, yes by you.
And that you would show them,
That you're still, this world's boss too.

In Jesus' name, I ask, amen.

and that the fine citizens of
Dixie made a bold stand, drew
the line that the ACLU cannot
cross. With all the bad new in
the world today it is so
refreshing to hear something,
so good as what took place in
Dixie. Thank you all for your
stand and may the grace of our
Lord Jesus Christ be with you:
John Cheeseman

Quilt Museum
'Log Cabin Quilters met
Thurs. Feb 8 at the Levy
'County Quilt Museum. Our
weather was great and
everyone enjoyed the day. My
granddaughter Jackie
Cassaway came up from
'Dunnellon to see what we do
on club day. Quilting is not for
her, but she did try. She works
Sat Home Shopping, takes care
'f- her husband and three
children plus two who are step-
children. As the day came to a
close, she said, Grandma I now
know why you stay going and
feel great. She will have lots to
tel' when she goes back to
work.
Doris and Carol put in a
quilt to be done at home.
Several worked on the
Butterfly top as some of the
squares have to be taken out.
They found different colors of
white that come in packages
from a craft house, so be
careful what you order, but it
will be fine when quilted.
Jarrod and five boys was
out from Lancaster and they as
always got so much done. It's
always fun to teach them how
to do the many things that
keeps us going. We hope when
they go home they remember
all the things they learned.
Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch was tables filled
with meatballs, mashed
potatoes, mustard greens,
beans, macaroni and cheese,
corn bread biscuits, eggs,
salads, Marie's Chocolate
Surprise, chocolate pie,
brownies and so much more.


If you treat every situa-
tion as a life and death
matter, you'll die a lot of
times.

being hit by cars. Please Think

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2007


"ACLU

:LAWSUIT"
Continuedfrom page 1A
J. Brent Walker, Executive
Director of the Baptist Joint
Committee for Religious
Liberty said, "The question is
not whether the Ten
commandments embody the
right teachings; rather the
question is who is the right
teacher politicians or parents,
pubic officials or religious
leaders, judges or families,"
Other points made in the press
release were that by the
erection of one version of the
Ten Commandments, it sends a
signal to others that they are
not welcome and will be
treated unfairly. Dr. Lesley
Northup, Associate Dean,
Honors College, FIU stated in
a teleconference last week that
a display like the one on the
Dixie County steps does not
show religious freedom, but
promotes a type of religious
depression. She added that all
religious people should be
wary of such symbols. "What
hurts some of us hurts us all,"
she stated.
It was asked of the panel
during the teleconference,
what, if any were the
differences between the
Alabama case and the Dixie
County case? Besides the
.monument being outside on
the courthouse steps and not
inside the building; they are
also looking at the phrase
placed at the bottom of the
monument which states, "Love
God and Obey His
Commandments" as an 11t
Commandment.
There have been numerous
local citizens who have voiced
.support of the monument since
its placement in November
2006. The ACLU stated they
were filing the lawsuit on
behalf of their members, of
whom they have
approximately six residing in
Dixie County. However their
names have been kept from the
public.
A copy of the lawsuit can
be read online at
http://www.aclufl.org/pdfs/Leg

While the monument was
paid for by private citizens, it
is not clear as to what the cost
of fighting the ACLU lawsuit
will be, however taxpayer
resources are already being
expended through county
Employee man hours.
'According to Dixie's County
'Attorney, Leenette McMillan,
as of press time, the county
had not been served papers
concerning the lawsuit and was
not able to comment at this
time. Once those papers are
served, the ball will be in their
court as to whether they will
challenge the validity of the
lawsuit or come to some
agreement with regard to the
monument.

"WATER"
Continued from page 1A
using noncurrent technology
unable to keep Suwannee's
drinking water in compliance
with new and updated FDEP
and EPA regulations.
Increasing concerns with
toxins in drinking water call
for amendments to regulations,
as well as additional
regulations to be made on a
:regular basis. As these stricter
"and more inclusive drinking
-"water standards are created,
water treatment plants across
'.the nation and state-wide must
:.constantly strive to meet the
;-terms set forth by those
standards.
In 2001, Suwannee Water
and Sewer District was
notified of new state and
federal drinking water
standards.
"Most coastal communities
were not in compliance with
those water quality
regulations," Johns said.
Quickly realizing that the


District, like so many others,
was unable to comply,
Suwannee Water and Sewer
District, along with Dixie
County District 3
.Commissioner Marcus Hays,
County Coordinator Arthur
Bellot, Frank Darabi of Darabi
and Associates, Inc., and
others, began developing a
plan of action.
Commissioner Hays
explained how Bellot, Darabi
and himself went to Ocala and
met with Charlie Nichols from
USDA Rural Development


asking about the possibility of
receiving funding for a new
water treatment plant. Rural
Development is the lead
federal entity for rural
development needs, however,
at the time, federal funds were
being shifted around due to Ihe
911 tragedy and funds
normally set aside for Rural
Development projects were
being allocated for Homeland
Security needs.
"It made funding, and the
amount of funding, harder to
receive," Hays said.
At the same time, the
District also turned to FDEP as
a funding source, however,
funding is limited to a yearly
basis, Johns said. He explained
that the District essentially had
to save its yearly allocations
from FDEP before starting the
project.
Now, nearly seven years
later, with adequate funding
from Rural Development and
FDEP, the long-awaited and
heavily planned project can
begin. Coinciding with this
project, the water distribution
upgrade project, headed by the
Suwannee Water Improvement
Group (SWIG) will also be
underway. It is estimated to


take 18 months to complete.
Using "state-of-the-art
technology"-Reverse
Osmosis (RO) and
Nanofillration-Johns said
Suwannee drinking water is
expected to exceed federal and
state standards once the new
water treatment plant is up and
running.
But, according to Johns,
the ultimate test will be
whether or not it exceeds the
standards of its customers.
"Drinking it and using it
(bathing and washing) will be
the true test," Johns said. "The
manufacturers and engineers
have told us the water will be
comparable to that of bottled
water."
Making great strides over
recent years, Hays said, the
Suwannee Water and Sewer
District has made many
significant improvements and
will continue to improve.
"I'm thankful for the
dedication and cooperation of
the Suwannee Water and
Sewer District Board, the
County, and SWIG over the
years," Hays said. "We've
come a long way."


"A ACCIDENT"
Contd. from Page IA
According to the report, the
vehicle, a 1995 Ford
Thunderbird driven by Jordan,
was traveling south on Puckett
Road in the southbound lane
above the posted speed limit.
The vehicle traveled onto the
east grass shoulder of Puckett
Road traveling southeast down
a grass embankment. As the
vehicle traveled southeast, it
began to rotate counter
clockwise. While rotating
counter clockwise, the vehicle
began to overturn. When the
vehicle overturned, it hit two
trees. After overturning, the
vehicle came to a final rest on
its left side against one of the
trees.
Jordan and Holmes were
not wearing seatbelts.

I love you and miss you very much. You and I were so very
close. I remember you would always look after me and every
Christmas day you would wake up early and drive to our house and
wake Nanny and I up. You would always have a lot of toys for me.
I know you are in a better place and it is called Heaven.
Now you know I'm I 1-years-old, but I'm going to be twelve on
April 28, 2007.
I love you and miss you, Uncle Mike.

Forever In Our

Hearts
God looked around His
garden and He found
an empty place.
He then looked down
upon this earth
and saw your beautiful face.
He put His arms around you
and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be
beautiful, He always
takes the best.
He knew that you were in
pain. He knew that you


would never get well on earth again.
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered,
"Peace Be Thine."
He then took you up to Heaven with hands gentle and so kind.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.

In Memory of Annie Mae Knight
March 29, 1890 February 19, 1971 ,
"Mother"
The "Hill" is quiet now, a stillness it has never known, a kind,
of peace that God's love and mercy has shown. Your suffering was '
too great for you, alone, to bear; and God, in His infinite wisdom
and love, chose with you to share.
Now, when your lilies on the "Hill" bloom in new life again;.
we will remember the time with us, you chose, lovingly, to spend. '
Oh, Spring will come! As winter, surely, shall pass, and signs',
will come to life again, in bud and leaf and grass. But, we in bur
infantile day, shall never forget, that you passed our way.
Dorothy Parker Knight
February 20, 1971


Faith Baptist Church News
Today was a glorious day at Faith. Our crowd was large, the
Spirit was strong among us and one person was baptized. How thM"
angels in heaven must have rejoiced. God continues to do'-a'-'
wonderful work at Faith. Chris Lord did the special music in the'-:
morning service and did her usual great job. Heather Fore sang fbT ,
us in the evening serviceland did a good job as well. Bro. Jackfie
brought two good me.ssaes. "f
Our Awana group is growing fast and the children are loving`
it. If you aren't taking your children to any church on Wednesday'
night, be sure and bring them out so they can be a part of the fmn',
and games and learning about Jesus in the Awana program. The"'
ones coming now love it and I'm sure your children would too ''
We surely need to remember to pray for the Awana Program, the
children and the teachers. It's a wonderful work for God.: ,"c
If you don't have a church, we invite you to try ours. There's a",
lot of love at Faith and we'd be so happy to share it with YOU:'
Our visitors are very special people and we invite you back'
anytime.
Until next week, remember our Wednesday night services,''
Awanas, and especially remember to pray for the sick and
bereaved in our community. Most important of all, remember to-
pray for the lost and invite someone to Sunday School and Church:'
with you. If you haven't been coming to Sunday School, we urge'
you to come and bring a friend, co-worker or neighbor. God will
bless you for it.


Behold The Tabernacle Of God
I, the day of the Lord, say when we see the world at large so filled'
with corruption area we conscious only that iniquity is a bounding, or can'
we look to the truth of the scripture and know that Christ is the true light,'
which lightest every man that cometh into the world. John 1:9 God is'
raising up a people that are beginning to embrace the vision that the triie"
light is going to light every man that cometh into the world. O hallelujah.'
Amen. I the Day of the Lord say we look beyond the oppressing darkness'"
that fills the present hour to see in God the hour when light shall shine'-
forth and shall dispel all darkness completely. For LOVE'S Light shall the':
universe. In God's decreed arrangement Love's light shall ultimately fill'
all the universe. I know it is dark now! But beloved, if we will spend our
time brooding with despair over this we'll end up sick with a spiritual';
headache. For the truth is it shall all pass away as god turns on the light'
and all negation of the darkness shall dissipate into the nothingness froni
which it came, and the place there of shall know it no more. I, the day of:
the Lord, say for the True Light that ligheth every man is going to arise'-
and unto them that look for him shall "The Sun of Righteousness arisei-
with healing in His wings." As the prophet Malachi 4:2 foretold. There"
can be no darkness when God is all in all for God is light, and in Him is'b
no darkness" John 1:5 Now let us press the truth even further; If darkness
is transitory, and there for unreal, So is death. It is unreal in the sense that '
it is not absolute; it is part of that which shall pass away. Death is the
absence of LIFE. Impart life to that which is dead is destroyed. But you'
know you cannot reverse the order. Death cannot conquer life! In the
absence of life death reigns but death is overthrown where life advances.'
Life Is Conqueror. I, the Day of the Lord, say" In Him in Life "John 1:4'
we shun death, why'? Because it seems to be real, (am not just speaking of
physical death). We shun the dying process, these days of crucifixion, for'
they appear to be endless but they aren't. This process too, will end arid
the result will be our entrance into divine life in full.... For this we:


LOOK! Death is not eternal in its nature. The last enemy to be destroyed
is death, (1 Cor. 15:26), and when this last enemy is destroyed it is self-
evident that none remains. Death might seem to be real, experimentallyi't
appeared to be real for a time, but it is relative and only a part of the-
"bondage of vanity, or shall we say emptiness" and must pass away;,
dissipated by the entrance of life. I the Day of the Lord, say if somehow:
the sprit cloud take this truth and case it to be illumined to us we wouldn't
be shunning the crucifying process so much. We wouldn't mushroom' it"
into such a mountain all the time. Death is a shadow and is unreal. Love
you very much. Cont next week.

How Can The Social Security Disability SpeciallstAt Integrated Family Services Help You?

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

Trying to be No. 1 in

everything
As the No. 1 ranked Florida Gator basketball team
was preparing to take the court in Lexington Saturday
-night, the school's baseball team was hoping to

series against Virginia Military Institute. And former
SCharlotte High slugger Matt LaPorta was tending to
some unfinished business.
But for quirk of fate, LaPorta might have been on his
Sway to Fort Myers this spring as a hopeful to make the
big league roster with the Boston Red Sox. Instead, he
was getting his ups in the second game against VMI,

Register Now For Summer Camp MA

In The Ocala National Forest 2007 s


Do your children long to
spend their summer days in the
great outdoors? Would they
love the chance to learn about
wildlife from experts, and hike
and canoe with other children
their age?
Then it's time to sign them
up for the Ocala Outdoor
Adventure Camp at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Ocala
Conservation Center in the
Ocala National Forest.
Registration for the 2007
summer sessions has already
begun.
The summer camp is for
boys and girls, ages 9-14, and
is based on wildlife
conservation, firearm safety
and outdoor skills. This year,
the camp offers six one-week
sessions beginning June 10.
The primary goal of the
camp program is to provide
children with the necessary
skills and knowledge to
become better sportsmen, while
instilling an awareness of
fearm.,.safety, conservation
and wildlife stewardship. In
edition, campers will fish,
canoe, swim, hike and
participate in many other
outdoor activities.
Tuition is $295 per camper
per week and includes lodging,
food, program materials and
instruction for each session.
Each week-long session is
divided into three groups based
on individual focus: wildlife
and conservation, hunting and
hunter safety and advanced
outdoor skills.
"Campers in the wildlife
and conservation group go
wild, exploring nature," said
Greg Workman, director of the
Ocala Conservation Center.
"They learn about wildlife
management, and enjoy many
camp activities including basic
wilderness survival and field
'first-aid, canoeing, swimming,
fishing, hiking, gun safety and
other fun hands-on outdoor
activities.
For the camper who wants
to take the hunter safety course,


the hunting and hunter safety
group is the way to go.
"This program will teach
campers how to be safe and
ethical outdoorsmen and
women. They'll learn about
wildlife and its habitat and be
able to apply what they learn
when they go into the woods.
In addition, they will have a
chance to get their hunter
safety certification, which is
required by law before they can
get their hunting license.
"They will receive firearm
and archery safety instruction
from certified range safety
officers. They'll also learn
wilderness survival and field
first-aid training, and do other
traditional camp activities such
as canoeing, swimming and
fishing," Workman said.
The final program,
advanced outdoor skills, is
designed for return campers
who have received their hunter
safety certification.
"This program is for
campers who have an avid
interest in the outdoors. They'll
get to experience an outdoor
adventure, including an
overnight primitive camping
trip into the forest," Workman
said. "Before leaving base
camp, campers prepare for the
experience by learning the
fundamentals of wilderness
survival, orienteering,
backpacking and campsite
preparation."
The Ocala Conservation
Center is on a 57-acre
peninsula, rich in history and
wildlife in Marion County in
north Central Florida. It is 20
miles east of Ocala, on Lake
Eaton, in the heart of the Ocala
National Forest. The facilities
are rustic, yet comfortable, with
air-conditioned cabins and
dining hall. Classrooms are
fishing piers, shooting ranges,
nature trails, Lake Eaton and
the vast Ocala National Forest.
For more information or for
registration materials for the
summer program, call (352) 625-

FWC Announces Annual Manatee

Synoptic Survey Numbers
In the annual manatee synoptic survey conducted Jan. 30 Feb.
1, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
reported a preliminary count of 2,812 manatees statewide.
A team of 16 observers (14 by air and two on the ground) from
eight organizations counted 1,412 on Florida's Atlantic Coast and
1,400 on the state's Gulf Coast.
A synoptic survey is a simultaneous count of manatees over a
broad area. The survey results are not used directly to evaluate the
status of the manatee population. Although the survey results are
not an estimate of population size, this survey provides researchers
with a minimum number of manatees in Florida waters at the time
of the count. In addition, the surveys provide a snapshot of
manatee distribution around the state.
State law requires an annual count, weather permitting, of
manatees in Florida waters. The synoptic survey meets this
requirement. The best conditions for the synoptic survey occur
during the winter. FWC follows a prescription for favorable
weather conditions for manatee surveys as weather and manatee
behavior affect synoptic survey counts. This year, warm winter
conditions and changing weather over the course of the survey
influenced the resulting count.
"Deteriorating weather conditions posed a challenge to
observers. However, despite the weather, we counted record
numbers of manatees in Tampa Bay, Blue Spring and Brevard
County," said Dr. Holly Edwards, the FWC biologist in charge of
the annual count.
Researchers at FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute are
developing new survey methods that would make future aerial
surveys more accurate and less dependent on weather conditions.

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.
TAYLOR COUNTY
Feb. 2, Officer Randy
McDonald worked information
concerning possible illegal
hunting in Camp Misery Hunt
Club. During surveillance of a
hunt camp, McDonald watched
four hunters stand around a
campfire and smoke what'
appeared to be cannabis.'
McDonald approached the:
hunters and found all four:
subjects to be juveniles and in
possession 'of alcohol and
cannabis. All subjects were
appropriately charged.
Feb. 3 at approximately 10
p.m., Lt. Bruce Cooper and
Officers Andy Bickel, Randy
McDonald, Leonard Bailey,:
and Clay Huff responded to a
lost hunter complaint in -the
Spring Creek WMA. The
hunter's wife advised that-lief
husband was several hours
over due and had numerous
life threatening medical
conditions. She advised that
her husband hunts in Three
Rivers Hunt Club as well as
Spring Creek, but she was not
sure where he had decided tod
hunt on this particular day. At
2 a.m. Feb. 4, FWC Pilot Steve
Stout located a small red
beacon in Spring Creek
WMA. Cooper responded to
the area and located the hunter
safe and sound. The hunters
truck had become stuck wheni
he attempted to traverse a deep
mud hole.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2007


American Legion News
Thursday. February 15, is the regularly scheduled meeting at
Post 91. The meeting will be preceded by an all you can eat
donation spaghetti dinner. Come out for dinner and slay for the
meeting. The Post meeting will begin at 7:00 PM. Next month, the
American Legion will be eighty-eight years in continuing service
to America. All Posts generally have some type of celebration for
this event. Post 149 will have a covered dish dinner on March 6 at
7:00 PM to celebrate the Legion Birthday. Plan to attend and bring
a favorite dinner dish to share.
I was going through some files at home and I ran across the
newspaper clipping 1 saved about George Cole, the Department of
Florida's Firefighter of the year for 2000. The write-up spoke of
the efforts of Mr. Cole in building the Fire Station at Spring Ridge,
and those that worked with him at this Volunteer Fire Station.
Then, just five years later. Fire Captain Don Alexander was the
Department of Florida's Firefighter of the Year 2005.
When we think of heroes in our midst, the Volunteer Firefighter
comes to mind, along with other volunteers that work to keep us
safe, like the man and women of the Crime Watch Patrols. The
community should recognize the efforts put forth by these
volunteers every day to keep our community safe. As one
volunteer firefighter said before, "Just bring some cold Gatorade or
water to the fire scene for the firemen to drink when the fire is
out". The firemen don't have the time to stop and pick up a bottle
or two on the way to the fire, and sometimes the Crime Watch is
there to keep the roads clear for the rescue crews. Remember these
heroes in our midst, too.
Keep our Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers each day
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 however and whenever we can.
For God and Country Wayne Gravely, Post 149

4 Pets Sake
By golly there are some nice things for the antique auction.
There is beautiful glassware from Italy and Japan, unusual pewter
pieces, milk glass, books on antiques and collecting, and the list is
endless so you'll just have to come out and see for yourself. The
place to be is Newberry City Hall 255440 W. Newberry Rd. at
l pm.and Col. Paul Malphrus will do the calling.
Coming up March 3rd is a combined benefit for Sunset
Meadows a 501-C3 wildlife sanctuary, and 4 Pets Sake. This will
-'be a hugh yard sale in Bell. More details later, but if you care to
donate anything for two worth while causes please contact us.
We have received some alarming news recently about an
individual who has informed pet owners that they must surrender
their pets to this person because there is a limit as to the amount
they can have. Not true.....there is no ordinance in Gilchrist co. that
states this. If this should happen to you please notify the proper
authorities about the harassment. Apparently this is an allegation
so far, but you need to be aware of this matter if it surfaces to be
true.
Until next time be happy just for the love of them. Renee
Emenecker 866-727-2972 or 386-935-0975 email

Members of the Tri-County Marine Corps League #1013, met
with members and Auxiliary members of the Trenton American
Legion Post 91 for a joint visit to Veterans in the Ayers Medical
facility and the Tri County Nursing Home on Sunday, Feb. 11.
Hearty handshakes, big smiles and a few tears as war stories
were retold. One woman patient told of being a fierce pilot, flying
planes from the states to England to be used in combat. Another
vet had been on a victory ship, ferrying men and supplies to the
war zone, while another had served on an aircraft carrier. One
veteran, in going through his papers, had been awarded the Bronze
Star for action in Europe.
The Ladies Auxiliary of Trenton had prepared Valentine candy,
which they gave to each veteran.
It was a very heart warming experience for those veterans who
participated and as they were leaving, they talked of making future
repeat visits to the ailing veterans of long ago wars.

promotes accurate reading by awarding points when students
answer comprehension questions correctly. The students have a
monthly goal of 10 points. Those reaching that goal each month
are given a small prize. To keep the students motivated, there are
also a few cumulative goals set throughout the year. Students who
met our first cumulative goal this year were treated to a special
viewing of Charlotte's Web at the Perry Theatre.
The AR Coordinators would like to thank Karen VanAernam,
Katrina VanAernam, Jennifer VonStein, Jennifer Bellot, Chris
Osteen, and Cecilia Walker for arriving early at the theatre to help

Card Of
Thanks
It is a blessing to live in a
community where neighbors
come together to help each
other when there is a need.
That outpouring of support
was shown this past Friday
when members of the
community pulled together a
benefit to help Willy Coarsey
and his family. It takes a lot of
people to put together an event
of that magnitude and we want
to thank everyone that took
part in the planning,
preparation, delivery of meals,
and cleanup. Thank you to
Akins BBQ for helping us out
in a pinch when the
community support was so
generous that we ran out of
meat. Thank you to every
person that came and
supported Willy by purchasing
a meal.
If you were not able to come
or if you were unaware of
Willy's medical condition and
you would still like to give you
can go to any local Capital
City Bank and donate to
William Coarsey's account.
Thank you again for making
this such a great place to live.

"HISTORICAL
CHURCH"
Continued from page 1A
possible. He went on to say
that it is a great attribute to the
members, because without
members there is no church
and the longevity of the church
was due to its members'
dedication and hard work of its
generations of families.
Dixie County historian
Evonne Cline also spoke,
stating that she felt very
privileged to help in the
celebration. It was noted that
Cline helped church member
Lucille G. Stockton with the
mounds of paperwork that was
required by the state in order to
get the historical marker for
the oldest Black Church in
Cross City. It took nearly two
years, but once the church
received the good news that
they had been designated as a
,historical site, they chose to go
ahead and pay for the marker
themselves.
Originally a wooden
structure, built in 1929, stood
where the newer block church
stands today. It was in 1942
that the existing church was
built, literally block by block.
Many of the church's members
recalled going after school to
the church and helping to make

the blocks that would
withstand time. Later the
cement floor would be poured,
by the barrel. The walls, made
from pecky cypress, reflect the
times when large cypress was
cut from the virgin forest of
Dixie.
County Mother,
Wilmonteen Smith, spoke of,
"If these stones could speak to


us today; oh what wonderful.
things they would tell us!"
Smith noted that the church
has been the community house,
school house, counseling
center, and used for many
charity activities. She stated
that every black family in this
community had been served
some way or another on the
site. She ended by saying, "We


Dixie County Holds Toxic Roundup March 10, 2007


Bring household hazardous
wastes such as paint,
insecticides, used oil, solvents,
florescent lamps, used
batteries, old fertilizer,
cleaning chemicals and stale
gasoline to the 2007 Dixie
County Toxic Roundup. These
items are some of the many
household hazardous wastes
that will be safely disposed of
for you. The Toxic Roundup
will be held on Saturday,
March 10 at the Fire Station in
Old Town from 9am-4pm and
the Dixie County Court House
in Cross City from 10am-3pm.
Proper disposal of these
products will help prevent
contamination of our water
supply and keep our
environment safe.
Simply bring your
household hazardous wastes to


the collection center and the
trained attendants will unload
and handle all your hazardous
wastes; there is no need to
even get out of your car! The
process is quick, easy, and free
of charge for Dixie County
residents and fee based for
businesses.
To transport these
hazardous materials, carefully
pack the hazardous waste
containers in boxes with
dividers. If a container leaks,
pack it in a larger container
with an absorbent material
such as cat litter or oil
absorbent. Do not mix
different or unknown materials
together. All containers must
be labeled. If you cannot
identify the contents label it
"unknown."
Do not bring explosives


such as ammunition, dynamite
and blasting agents; reactives
such as crystallized ethers,
picric acid and sodium and
phosphorus metals; infectious
wastes; or pressurized
cylinders such compressed as
gases.
For more information, call
Joe.Ruth at 352.498.1289. The
Toxic Roundup is sponsored
by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and
Dixie County Commission.


came this far by faith, leaning
on the Lord and we continue to
serve where we are needed."
Many folks took a few
moments to reflect on their
memories of the church and
what it meant to them. It was
obvious that the small country
church is one that is filled with
many memories and the Holy
Spirit.
