!Big Al's Oscar
It has been years since the Academy Awards reflected either
.quality or audience preference in motion pictures. The year 1939
brought us Gone With The Wind; 1943, Casablanca; 1951, African
Queen; 1952, High Noon; 1953, The Robe and From Here To
:Eternity; 1956, The Ten Commandments...far too long a list to
:more than touch on here. But that was then....
In 1966, Elizabeth Taylor won an Oscar for best actress for her
leading role in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" It was a pretty
nothing flick, except for the fact that Liz put on a few pounds to
play the role of a frumpy wife, and she talked dirty. Mind you, I
wasn't all that surprised to learn that the star of National Velvet
.(1944, when she was 12 years old), could cuss like an intoxicated
boson's mate, it's just that it wasn't done in the movies back then
(the novelty wore off about 10 minutes into the film), but it proved
to be a harbinger of things to come.
I learned that awards for documentaries have been around a lot
'longer than I thought. The first of these was Churchill's Island in
1941, a short film promoting the Allied cause in World War II. In
1950, the award went to Why Korea?, an effort to explain the
rationale for defending South Korea against the invasion of the
:North Korean Communist government.
Documentaries have certainly come a long way, baby, since
then; however the problem lies in the direction they've come.
Last Sunday night, ABC-TV aired the 79th annual Academy
Awards presentation, and it was a hum-dinger. I will admit to not
.being up on all the films that won awards, however I cannot escape
the urge to make a few salient comments on An Inconvenient
Truth, an effort to expand on a book written by former Vice-
President Al Gore on the subject of global warming or, more
specifically, the role that human activity has allegedly played in
[this phenomenon.
Gore's position, and likewise that of the Oscar-winning film, is
'that we are dealing with an impending global crisis, and therefore
we must trade in our SUV's and 4WD pickups for mopeds (or
:better yet, bicycles) before the oceans rise, sweep us all away, and
we fall off the edge of the earth.
. What Gore's agenda is dealing with is politically-motivated
junk science. Global warming and cooling is a cyclical
:phenomenon, and the jury is still out as to whether human activity
,plays any significant role. State governments and universities have
'tried to muzzle professors who don't buy into the politically correct
,viewpoint, but there is at the moment no general agreement among
climatologists and other scientific experts, so it makes no sense
whatsoever to treat this as a settled issue and get hysterical in an
Effort to solve a problem that probably doesn't even exist.
I thought I'd take a break from the Oscars Sunday night, and
;watch The Half Hour News Hour on FOX News channel. Thirty
;minutes of satire lampooning the political left, and the previous
:week's show (the first) was funny. So funny, I guess, that they
.decided to air it again. It's the first time I've ever heard of a TV
show going into re-runs in its second week.
All right, it was only a half hour, starting at ten. But think
about it: We've know for weeks that Al Gore's effort was a slam-
dunk for the documentary Oscar. It doesn't seem like it should
have been too difficult to come up with a script lampooning that
.situation.

Letter To The Editor
Religious monument on the courthouse steps, ACLU Suit
Now that the ACLU has filed suit it is time to get serious
about how this lawsuit is going to be defended against. There is
no shame in losing a well-fought contest. There is no shame in
losing a contest when the odds are stacked against you. It would
be a shame to lose by virtue of mounting a poor defense.
The complaint filed with the court invokes the first phrase of
the first amendment; "Congress shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion".
There is a critically important concept here. This phrase is
limiting the power of government. Yes, extrapolated to local
government, this phrase is saying that Dixie County Government
may not install this religious symbol, the Ten Commandments
monument on the courthouse steps.
The next phrase, "nor limiting the free exercise thereof' is
saying that Dixie County Government may not prohibit .the
citizenry of Dixie County from expressing their religion by
placing a religious monument.
The critical issue here is: is this monument placed on the
courthouse steps by Dixie County Government? or is this
monument placed on the courthouse steps by the citizenry of
Dixie County?
Now we know that the impetus for the placement of this
monument came from a citizen. We also know that the Dixie
County Commission did at least accede to a citizen's request.
It is my understanding that the monument was donated by a
private citizen, that no county government money has been
expended. This is supportive of the claim that this monument is
an expression of the religious convictions of the people of Dixie
County.
I would propose as a way forward, that Dixie County undo
any action that it has taken in this matter which might be
considered Dixie County Government acting to have this
monument placed on the courthouse steps. Perhaps even, up to
and including hiring a crane to come and remove the monument
off County Government property.
After that, if the citizens of Dixie County come together by
popular acclamation and restore the monument to the courthouse
steps, they will have clearly demonstrated to the court that the
Ten Commandments monument on the courthouse steps is an
expression of their Christianity and thereby claim the protection
of the United States Constitution.
The County Commission could then act in accession to the
popular will of the people to have this religious monument on the
courthouse steps. It could then issue a proclamation clearly
affirming it's secular nature and dissociating itself from any
religion.
Surely the ACLU will amend their suit, but I think that Dixie
County will be well postured to defend itself. The many letters to
the editor of this paper in support of the monument would seem to
indicate that there is strong grass roots support for the monument.
Apathy will not prevail in this matter. Public sentiment will have
to be strong and well directed to prevail in this matter.

Letter To The

Editor
Supporting our troops?
Back in 2003, the Advocate
ran my letter condemning the
Bush administration for the
disgraceful treatment of our
brave men and women
wounded in Iraq. The
following is a synopsis of that
letter.
Reported on Oct. 17, 2003
by Mark Benjamin, UPI
Investigations Editor:
Hundreds of sick and wounded
U.S. soldiers are housed in hot
cement barracks at Fort
Stewart, Ga., waiting
sometime for months to see
doctors. Approximately 600
sick or wounded members of
the Army Reserves and
National Guard are
warehoused in rows of spare,
steamy and dark cement
barracks in a sandy field. First
Sgt. Gerry Mosley said There
are people here who got back
in April, but did not get their
surgeries until July. Back in
Sept. of 2003 it was reported
that our wounded military men
and women after discharged
from our military hospitals, the
Pentagon bills them for meals
they had as patients. This
could add up to a thousand
dollars or more for some of our
long term wounded.
Veteran benefits were being
cut and some VA hospitals are
being closed and reduced
services in many others. For
example the reduced services
in the VA hospital in Lake
City. Bush also this year
(2002)proposed to cut $1.5
billion (14% ) out of funding
for military family
housing/medical facilities and
according to major veteran's
groups, the 2002 budget fell $
1.5 billion short of adequately
funding veterans care.
Now four years later you
would think the care of our
sick and wounded military
men and women would be
better. Unfortunately in some
cases it is not. In Walter Reed
hospital our wounded are
getting great treatment, but
after being discharged from
Walter Reed as outpatients
they are housed in a old hotel
outside the gates of the
hospital and just 5 miles up the
road from the White -louse.
The old hotel is called
Building 18 and not the kind of
place a grateful nation would
put our heroes in. Signs of
neglect are everywhere.


Cockroaches, mouse dropping,
stained carpets, cheap
mattresses, black mold. Almost
700 soldiers and Marines are
living in these bleak conditions
and some as long as two years.
Many who have limbs missing
are forced to walk unassisted ,
sometime in the snow, back to
the hospital for treatment.
We have done our duty.
We fought the war. We came
home wounded. Fine, but
whoever the people are back
here who are supposed to give
us the easy transition should be
doing it," said Marine Sgt.
Ryan Groves, 26, an amputee
who lived at Walter Reed for
16 months. We don't know
what to do. The people who
are supposed to know don't
have the answer. It's a nonstop
process of stalling."
Walter Reed is not a V.A.
facility, it is a Army hospital
and one of the best. As a
Korean War veteran and a
volunteer, I have received
excellent care at the
Gainesville V.A. hospital.
Unfortunately the same can not
be said for all of our Military
men and women.
The blame can be placed on
the White House both parties
in congress and us, because we
do not take the time to keep
informed on the working of
our government.

Letter To The Editor
Have we really thought it through?
I have read every letter that has been written to this paper and,
talked to many people through out the county. The majority are
in favor of the monument being right where it is. I know that the.
ACLU had to go outside of this county to get a party for their'
lawsuit. This is no surprise to me or anyone else for that matter,
My personal opinion is that I see no problem with it being right
where it is, but for the moment let me be the "devils advocate."
I have just a few questions that I have not seen any answers
for. 1. When this issue was first brought up to the Commissioners,
did they FULLY review all the issues that may arise by allowing.
this monument to be erected where it is? 2. Were they fully.
prepared to take this ALL THE WAY" to the end of this legal,
battle? 3. If they have done the first two questions, then are they
prepared for the consequences that may then effect this whole:-
county? I am no great scholar about the powers of the"
government. I know only what they can do that has effected me-
personally in a few issues. I do know that the Board has made
past decisions that were not completely researched that in the end-
impacted me and several neighbors where I live. The Board in-
fact even admitted in a meeting that they had made a mistake.
Fine, we are not perfect and we do make mistakes.
My point is this, our Board has a legal counsel. Did he do
his research on this issue? Did he advise the Board of all the'
reactions legally that can occur? I do know that in past lawsuits
the out come has not been one of victory. I do not care for the'
ACLU. I feel that they push their agenda over the edge. I dd[
know this that if the federal government wins and the Board
refuses to comply, then there is a landslide of things that can
effect the county as a whole. Not just a few but EVERYONE that
lives in Dixie County. One such thing is that grants could dry up
on coming to this area. I just want everyone to know that making
a stand on principle is commendable. In a perfect world this.
would be a win situation. But sadly, we don't live in a perfect.
world. There are FAR reaching ramifications to this issue that,.
maybe not everyone has thought of.
My last thought is this. There has been things said about
personal motives on some peoples' part in doing just what has
been done. I cannot judge this. No body can. Only God and .
only his power can. God is the only one who can see inside a'
man or woman's thoughts, spirit or soul. Their motivations will
be judged one day and thank God it won't be me judging. That is
one job I am truly under qualified for. My concerns are for what-
effects me and where I live now. It also concerns me about
decisions that are being made by people that our trust has been
put into to see that our best interests are covered and cared for-
responsibly. My prayer is this: Please give wisdom to all -
involved in this issue that effects all of our citizens. Pride cometh
before the fall. Don't let pride be a motivation that leads to Dixie
County's fall.

and how to put them together.
A man from Williston came in

the pockets to put on squares,
do. some decorating and make
him a quilt.
Visitors are coming from
all over now. Canada, West

visit the Museum. We meet the
most wonderful quilters, all
with a story to tell us about
their quilts and crafts. We
share what we know with them

now you know we collect
aluminum cans and; we have
progressed to collecting Purina
dog and cat dry food weight
circles. Ink jet cartridges are
another and our newest is cell
phones.
Sooo, if you care to donate
cans, we have barrels at Bell
Jiffy, Smith Feed, Gilchrist
Building Supply, Scaff's, and
Newberry Hitchcock's. The
ingenuity of people is
astonishing. Some folks came
up with the idea to put empty
cartridges, weight circles, and
cell phones in a box and place
them in the barrel. It works,
the box kept the articles dry
and they did not get damaged,
thank you. If you, wish you can
also deposit the cartridges in
the display box at Smith Feed
or the Gilchrist County
Journal.
Just a reminder about the
benefit yard sale at Bell Club
House, located behind Bell
City Hall; stop by and help out
two organizations Sat. Mar. 3
at 9am. There are some great
bargains just waiting for you.
It's going to be a biggy.
We would also like to
thank everyone involved with
the recent antique auction.


& Wilbur Fowler and Faye &

There was a lot of hard work
and endless time that folks put
forth and it attributed to a great
fund raiser.
Until next time be happy
just for the love of them.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2007


"TAX

REFORM"
Continued from page IA
Some fear losing their-
home due to rapidly increasing
property taxes. Others worry
about the future of their small
businesses.
If something is not done
about the property tax situation
Sin Florida, many say they will
be forced to leave the state.
"I guess our next move will
be Georgia, but we love it
here, we don't want to go
there," said Dennis Hardin of
Levy County explaining that
high property taxes may force
him and his wife to move out
'of the state.
Hardin proposed that the
t':gate "cut the fat" out of its
spending.
Like Hardin, Fred Judy of
Dixie County also said that to
Slower property taxes, spending
needs to be limited.
Judy said he was shocked
to read a few months ago in the
Dixie County Advocate that the
SEmergency Management
'Services and the disaster
preparedness unit had so many
people on the payroll for such
a small county.
"We can't have everything
''that we'd like to have," he
said.
S; One of several proposals
Sthe state's Committee on
,Finance and Tax is bringing
,before lawmakers in March
when they debate tax reform is
to put a cap on local
government spending.
Although most in the
:crowd last Tuesday evening
..showed support of this
proposal, Charles King of
-, Chiefland said he worries that
,, "somebody's going to hurt."
King said, "When we start
..lowering these taxes and
cutting different areas,
somebody's going to hurt. Our
schools will hurt, our roads
will hurt, our emergency
equipment is going to suffer."
Another proposal the
Committee may make is
whether or not the existing
"'$25,000 Homestead
SExemption should be doubled
to $50,000.
Many of the senior citizens
in the crowd shared their
support of the $50,000
Homestead Exemption.
SEspecially those who do not
:-.qualify for the existing "Senior
Citizen Exemption" which
'gives low-income homeowners
(total household income of less
than approximately $23,463),
who are age 65 and over, an
additional $25,000 exemption.
'There's so many senior
citizens in my community that
didn't read all of the
referendum that was on the
ballot and they are very
disturbed about not being
qualified to get the additional
$25,000 in the Homestead
Exemption," said Bud
Shassere of Steinhatchee,
where property taxes have
tripled for some homeowners
in recent years.
Shassere explained that a
lot of people in his community
are paying very high prices for
property taxes and their tax
..burden is quite a bit of their
income.
"This additional $25,000
would benefit them," he said.
Unlike Shassere though,
"G.C. Fowler believes there will
be no benefit to the additional
$25,000 Homestead
Exemption.
"What's going to happen
"here is the appraiser's office is
going to appraise your
property 25 more thousand
dollars," Fowler said. "We
ain't got no benefit."
Despite sharing different
solutions on how the property
tax situation, or problem, as
many called it, in Florida can
be corrected-additional
$25,000 Homestead
Exemption, capping local
government spending,
replacing the property tax with
a state sales tax of 8.5 percent,
and other proposals--the


consensus was strong among
homeowners that they are
simply paying too much in
property taxes.
Business owners also
shared their views on the
property tax situation.
"We would love to have an
81 percent increase in revenue
and only a 25 percent increase
in customers to deal with,"
said Chad "Cracker" Johnson
of Levy County referring to the
81 percent increase in property
taxes over the last few years
,-;nd the 25 percent increase in


population.
Johnson added there has
been a great deal of growth in
the retail value of real estate
but not a lot of change in cash
flow.
"What we're really hearing
here (from business owners in
the crowd) is the issue of
businesses having to keep the
cash flow constant where for
you, from the government's
standpoint, the drive is to
continue to increase services
for your constituents so that
you can maintain your status
with your constituents when
you seek reelection, and us on
the other side are saying give
us this, give us this, we need
this," Johnson said. "It's a
Catch-22."
Two business owners in
Cedar Key, a hotel owner and
a clam farmer, say they are
worried about the future of
their businesses.
"There's no way we'll
survive," said Oliver Bauer.
Bauer owns a small hotel in
Cedar Key where over the
years the property taxes have
gone from $6,000 to $24,000.
Representing the clam
farmers of Cedar Key, Mike
Hodges explained his unique
situation to delegation
members.
Because the aquaculture
industry is fairly new, there are


no criteria for properly
appraisers to follow when
appraising their property.
"The existing system (for
agricultural exemptions) is
based on how many acres
you've got, how many trees
you've got, or cattle," Hodges
said.
Lodges asked that there be
some sort of language that can
help the aquaculture, "water-
dependent folks" to receive a
tax status exemption.
"Right now if we apply for
it, it's not worth it," Hodges
said. "We don't get breaks
because we don't have 300
acres of land or 500 head of
cattle, so we need something
that will work for us."
Listening to the comments
of all who wished to speak,
Sen. Mike Haridopolos, the
chair of the Senate Committee
on Finance and Tax said the


intent of the public hearings
was to hear what taxpayers had
to say before lawmakers
convene in regular session next
week.
"We want to give you the
first and last say,"
Haridolpolos said.
It will, however, take a
super majority of the voters-
60 percent or more-for the
new taxing policy to pass.
"The power is in your
hands," Hairdopolos said.
Haridopolos was joined by
Representatives Dennis
Baxley, Debbie Boyd, and
Charlie Dean, and Senators
Rudy Garcia, Daniel Webster,
Jeff Atwater, Steve Oelrich,
Evelyn Lynn and Nancy
Argenziano. Argenziano asked
for the public hearing, which
was originally not scheduled to
be held in Chiefland, be held to
allow taxpayers in her district


and nearby districts the same
opportunity to speak as those
living in larger areas in the
state.


Dreams come true.
Without that possibility,
nature would not incite
us to have them.
-John Updike

They weren't rich by any means; they managed to get by.
A brother to six sisters, the only son to live.
His daddy died in their store when he was almost ten.
He went to school and played football at "Ole Dixie High".
Quit school and joined the Navy; something he had to try.
He finished school when he returned, so he could graduate.

Both his legs were broken while he was on the job.
They said he'd never walk again, but he proved them wrong.

I While he lived and worked in Perry, he met his other wife.
They've gardened and they've fished, and had a real good life.
.Daddy stayed real busy; he'd work out in his shop.
Bucket stools and toys, kids loved whatever they got.
To most, his life's been simple, he's an ordinary man.
To us he's been our hero, our Daddy, and our friend.

You and God Bless" to all my
family and friends that have
shown their love for me and

much needed and enjoyed.
My family and I have been
truly blessed.

In Loving Memory
Of
Scott Johnson
Nov. 12, 1965 0 Aug. 26, 2006
I can't believe that it's been six months since you were so
suddenly and tragically taken from us. Each day we continue to
grieve your passing, still trying to understand why it had to be. We
know that you're in a better place, but it's still hard not having you
here with us to share in our lives. It's so hard not being able to see
you, talk to you and being able to see your smile and hearing you
laugh.
During your time on earth you left a lasting impression on all
you came in contact with. Scott, you touched more lives than you
knew. You were a man of few words, but the things you did to help
people mean more than any words that you could ever had said.
Scott, you were a dear and special man and I'm glad that I had
the chance to know you, love you and to share in your life. You're
always on my mind. We talk about you all the time. You'd be so
proud of your son, he reminds me so much of you at times that it
breaks my heart.
Scott, I'll always cherish our time together and no one will ever
be able to take your place in our lives. We love you with all our
hearts, and miss you more than words can ever say. You'll always
be in our hearts and thoughts; though you're gone, your memory
will live on forever in each of us who knew and loved you. Keep
smiling down on us.
Love always,
Martha & Colby

There Is Hope
Have you been out of sorts, Tossed about like a ship with "no"
port, Pressed within from each and every side, Searching-where
can you hide? You say-your load is just too heavy. And you cannot
anymore carry. Did I hear you say that you feel unworthy to pray?
Well-listen to me. I have good news at "no" fee. Yes-there is
"hope" for you. For it's not God's plan for any to be weary or blue.
Let me tell you of this place. Where awaits God's love and Grace.
At Wind of the Spirit located in Old Town. Life becomes whole
and smiles appear not frowns. For here is joy-peace and love. And
His "presence" is here from above. At Wind of the Spirit things are
not done for show. And "God's Glory" is always aglow. At Wind
of the Spirit we will pray with and for you. For we stand on "His"
every word-"Old and New." And our pastors, they are No. 1. They
have been anointed and chosen by the "Son." And the two with
God spread joy and love declaring Jesus Christ is coming soon
from above. From Steinhatchee to Old Town they trod. Their aim-
to forever please God. So come all who hear "Him" calling. There
is just no time for stalling. Look-Satan has his trap set. Listen-hear
him whisper, "I'll get them yet." Yes, it's up to me and you that all
will see serving God is fun to do. So, don't sit around weary and
blue, at Wind of the Spirit-hope is waiting for you.


I Attend The Church of Your Choice This Week


Ground Breaking For New Ministry For Pregnant Teens


On March 11, at 10:30 AM the Family of
God Fellowship located at 1471 Pine Road will
break ground for a new building. The building
will be the first of several buildings to house a
girl's home for pregnant teens in the Silver
Springs Shores area.

This new Ministry will be called the
House of Onesiphorus based upon 2 Timothy
1:16 (KJV) where Paul wrote, "The Lord give
mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he
oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my
chain:"
The House of Onesiphorus will be a place
of refuge and restoration for girls between the
ages of 10 and 17. The primary focus will be
on pregnant teens particularly those who need
to give their babies up for adoption.
The ministry to these girls will be holistic:
physical, emotional and spiritual. These young
girls have been abused and potentially carry
the scars of this abuse the rest of their lives. If
left on their own they have a difficult if not
impossible road to walk.


Most of these girls will never graduate
from high school and hence will not have the
education they need to acquire jobs that will
sufficiently support them. Without some kind
of intervention, these girls will go from one
pregnancy to another or perhaps worst yet,
abortions.
Our goal is to reach out to these girls and
help change their lives significantly to the
point that they become productive members of
our community. We believe God's grace is
sufficient to counter the damage of these scars.
This ministry will not be supported by any
government funds but by people who are
moved of God to contribute to this ministry.
Prayer will be a dynamic focus of the ministry
to meet the needs.
For more information on this new
Ministry, please contact:

New Prospect Baptist News
Sunday morning, our Revival Meeting got off to a good start as
our choir blessed us with beautiful songs of praise to our Lord. It
was good to have Bro. Charles Mayo and his family with us.:.
through God's leading, Bro. Charles brought a most heart-moving;
message to a full house, choosing his text from Mark 5:21-30.;
Sunday evening, we were blessed with more of the same and, as ain
added bonus; Danny Riels sang a beautiful song while-
accompanying himself on the piano...good job, Danny. During th6
Revival and afterward, we expect great things happening for God's:
glory!
On Mon. evening, Mar. 5, our Pastor and Deacons will have;
their monthly meeting, followed by our Church Business Meeting:
on Wed., Mar. 7, right after mid-week Prayer Service.
Please be praying this week for our military personnel and the;
situation in Iraq and other "hotspots." Pray also for those on the;
area church prayer lists and our President and other leaders. Once:
again, we were blessed with visitors Sunday and, as always,:
we welcome you and all others to come and worship with us
anytime. Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Behold The Tabernacles of God
"Heaven and Hell"
Man, after death comes into the spiritual world, which for the most
part takes place the third day after he has expired, he appears to himself in
a life similar to that in which he had been in the world, and in a similar
house, in a similar coast and clothing. If he was a king or a prince he
appears in a similar palace, if a peasant in a similar cottage. This happens
to everyone after death to the end that death may not appear as death, but
as a continuation of life, and that the last of natural life may become the
first of spiritual life and that from this a man may progress to his goal,
which will be either in heaven or in hell. That such a similarity of al things
appears to the recently deceased is because their minds remain the same as
it was in the world; and because the mind is not only in the head, but alsp
in the whole body, therefore a man has a similar body; for the body is the
organ of the mind and is continued from the head. The is the man himself,
but then no longer a material man, but a spiritual man; and because he is
the same man after death, there are given to him things similar to those
which he had possessed at home in the world, according to the idea of his
mind: but this last only some days, that the mind is in the whole body, and
is the very man who lives after death. The erroneous belief that man lives
after death a soul or mind, and this not under the appearance of a man, to
under the appearance of a breath, as it were, of respiration, or as a bubble
as it were, of air, is because men do not know that the mind makes the
interior form of the whole body. Man is like a tree, which first grows up a
seed into a shoot, and when it increases in height puts forth branches and
from these stems, and clothes, itself continually with leaves: and when it
comes to maturity, which takes place in its middle ages, put forth flowers,
and produces fruits: in each one it places seeds, which being cast into the
earth as into a womb, grow up into similar trees and thus into a garden.
And if you are willing to believe that same garden remains with the man
after death: he dwells in it and is delighted.
Love you...continued next week.

A Musical

Journey Through

The 70's
LAKE C ITY, Fla. If you
can remember where you were
when Elvis died, The Piano
Men Concert is for you. If you
can smell the interior of your
1973 VW Beetle, you'll
recognize every song If you
watch reruns of Gilligan's
Island or Green Acres, you'll
find yourself singing along.
On Monday evening,
March 12, The Piano Men,
featuring the songs of Billy
Joel and Elton John, starring
Jim Witter, will perform in the
Levy Performing Arts Center
at 7:30 p.m.
Utilizing rear-screen
projection, we return to the
newspaper headlines, the
automobiles, the people, the
events, the toys and even the
TV shows that shaped a
decade. Along the way, the
sounds of "My Life," "Candle
in the Wind," "Rocket Man,"
"Just the Way You Are," and
many more classic hits create


an evening that's just too much
fun to let it end. By the time
you hit 1979, you're begging
these musicians to just move
back to 1970 and start all over
again. With Witter at the grand
piano and his sizzling
musicians on keyboards,
guitar, bass, flute, sax and
drums, the music is not an
attempt to "recreate" or
"mimic" the evening's long list
of familiar hits. Instead, Witter
unleashes his golden tenor on
hit after hit to created fully-
formed mental and emotional
return visits to specific
landmarks in a pop culture
timeline.
Tickets for the performance
are $14 general admission, $13
seniors, and $12 LCCC staff
and students and students from
other schools.
Have dinner before the
show at the Lobo Cafe. Dinner
includes chicken Kiev or
hickory smoked ham, sweet
potatoes, broccoli, baked
beans, mixed dinner rolls,
salad bar, carrot cake, choice
of any fountain drink, tea or
coffee all for $8 including
tax.
For dinner reservations or
to purchase tickets, call the
box office at 386-754-4340.

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,

p- U


'. Mr. Wilbur Long brought us this week's Dixie Sighting. As
you can see from the photo above, the 91-year-old gardener has
quite a "green thumb" when it comes to growing collard greens;
Mr. Long told us that since the picture was taken the plants have
continued to grow, some now 7-feet tall! He also has planted 50
pounds of potatoes...we will look forward to seeing how big they
get.
Collard greens date back to prehistoric times, and are one of the
oldest members of the cabbage family. The ancient Greeks grey
kale and collards, and the Romans grew several varieties of the
greens. The 17th century Lowland Scots had what they called:
green "from the yard"; a staple with their corn cakes and mush.
It isn't known just when the collard arrived in American
cooking, but they have been on the Southern table since the
southern colonies were formed.
The traditional way to cook the popular greens is to boil them
with a piece of salt pork or ham hock. Once the leaves become
tender they are ready to eat. The water they are cooked in is called
"pot-likker" and is considered the best part of the collard by many.
Thanks Mr. Long!

RRMS Baseball & Softball Teams


The Buddy Show
by Budady artin
Stepping up to the plate one

more time


This is the year
I'm going back to an
Old Flame: Baseball.
It has been too
long between hugs
with the Great
American Pastime,
which I played as a
boy and loved so
much. We've been
drifting apart for


... .


several decades now and for reasons that still don't readily come
to mind, my passion for the game has dwindled.
Like most other sports fans, the interest level ebbs and
flows. About every October I become a fan again. Last season, as
in recent years, it seems the World Series outcome just wasn't all
that important even to a guy who was once a Cardinal fan.
Perhaps it is the late hour of competition, or even the
proliferation of franchises and the overexposure to the game
which contributed to my apathy. Seems like when we had only the
Game of the Week it was special. Now we get a choice of several
almost every night. More is less.
It would be convenient to blame the steroid scandal or the
high salaries or major league boys acting badly. Truthfully, my
lack of interest seems to stem from not living in a real baseball
community and being able to follow a contending team. Because
there is still nothing like a pennant chase.
Back when the Red Sox and Yankees were trading blows
and the Mets. were at least competitive I lived in New York and
enjoyed a game on TV several nights a week. But the best that the
Colorado Rockies and Tampa Bay Devil Rays have to offer have
not piqued my interest.
I really can't blame anybody else, so maybe it's just my
fault for not reaching out. I'm willing to meet baseball halfway
this year, however, and and I've begun doing a little homework to
get ready for the 2007 season. Maybe I'll even go as far as to see a
weekend series at The Trop.
Meanwhile, let's kick it off with a little trivia, which always
seems so indiginent to baseball:
There are only four major league baseball teams that don't
use players' names on the back of their road jerseys and
just one that has them on neither. Can you name them?
(See answer below)
Batterup!
'Quick Jump Starts
1. Just so you know how it's going to go next season, Bucs fans,
your team is already 0-1 after the coin toss with Cleveland for the
No. 3 pick in the NFL draft.
2. Now that Dwayne Wade is injured and out, it's time for The Big
Man, Shaquille O'Neal, to step up and earn That Big Money.
3. Sometimes we wonder why we watch NASCAR racing, and
then we get a reminder from the last spectacularly, splendorific,


Friday night in the first
home game of the season the
Lady Bears defeated visiting
Ft. White Indians, 7-2. Senior
pitcher, Caroline McClellan
had 8 strikeouts on the night.
The Indians were held
scoreless in the top of the first
and the managed one run when
Jessica Chewning reached first
on a walk and crossed home
plate when Kayla Clemens
sent a ball to the outfield for a
triple.
Neither team scored in the
second inning. The Indians put
two runs on the scoreboard
when the Lady Bears
committed two errors on the
first two batters, but managed
to put out the next three
batters. But the Bears were not
to be denied they answered
with four runs in the bottom of
the inning when Mandy
Cannon reached first on a
single, Chewning walked,
Clemens reached on a single.
Britni Robson came to the
plate with the bases loaded and
reached first on a single,
scoring Cannon. Chewning,
Clemens and Robson all three
scored on overthrown balls.
The Indians got the next two
batters out to end the inning.
In the top of the fourth
inning the Lady Indians got


slam-bang Daytona 500.
4. It must be spring, because Manny Ramirez is late reporting for
something again.
5. I have problems with a guy like Bill Romanowski, a reformed
.nI ,1 ,. I-. .I asteroid user Who says he has seen the error of
his ways, hawking his new supplements oIr brain-injured football
players.
Short Stuff:
With Arkansas AD Frank Broyles stepping down, coach Houston
Nutt is expected to be more exposed to fire from Razorback fans,
some of whom are taking out ads in newspapers to get Nutt
canned ... The Florida Gators cut down the nets after
Wednesday's night's win over South Carolina to celebrate the
regular season SEC basketball championship, then went to Baton
Rouge and got cut down by the LSU Tigers Saturday in what had
to be one of the worst showings of the season for Billy Donovan's
team ... The Gators, by the way, will be wearing new tighter
fitting uniforms Tuesday night at Tennessee, bearing some
facsimile of alligator skin.

--Huntington, West Va. schoolboy hoopster O.J. Mayo, who

FWC Scores

Antlers In

Live Oak
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) reserve
officers will score deer antlers
next week in Live Oak.
The scoring will be from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. March 10 at
R&R Tractor Parts, Guns and
Ammo, 944 N. Ohio Ave. A
seminar featuring turkey and
deer calls also will be featured
at the event. Refreshments
will be provided.
Hunters who have taken a
buck can have the antlers
scored to compare with other
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
will receive a certificate
suitable for framing.
The Florida Buck Registry
was established in 1982 to
provide hunters with a record
of the number and quality of
white-tailed deer taken in
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-
typical antlers.

Cheryl Clark at (386) 362-

Lower Suwannee Refuge

First Monday of the

Month Nature Walks:
On Feb.5 we had a lovely day so we drove the Nature Trail
Loop to gate #14. There we parked and walked that trail. Very
soon we had our first exciting sight of a Ruby-crowned Kinglet
who was showing his ruby crown. Very often these tiny birds are
seen flitting about but they don't always allow a glimpse of the
bright red spot on their heads. There have been a lot of kinglets
around this year, both this one and the Golden-crowned. As we are
now getting into migration these little birds along with our other
winter visitors are beginning to wend their way north. Right now
we have flocks birds around so this is a great time to get out, have
a walk through a field or woods or even down your own street and
just notice the many birds that you see. Cedar Waxwings are an
elegant bird that descends on bushes or trees with berries in huge
flocks, gorges on the berries and flies to find another food source,
Besides the birds we saw many interesting plants on this trail
that leads down to the Suwannee River. A blooming Spider Lily
caught our eye as we got the river. Many other plants were still irn
their more dormant state but promised great things as the weather
warms up. I hope you can join us to see what other treasures we
will uncover on our next walk. Be sure to bring bug spray, sun
screen and water.
Our next Nature walk will be on Mar. 5 at 9AM meeting at the
Lower Suwannee Refuge Office on CR 347 south of Flowers-
Bluff.
Call me if you need more information....Joan Stephens 352-
463-1095 or 352-538-4001.

The Suwannee River Shrine
Club will be holding a Turkey
Shoot on March 3, 2007 between

each.

"FAIR"
Continued from 1A
Alexander noted that the fairgrounds have undergone a lot of
maintenance work, including new fencing. "I feel people will be
pleased with the changes," he said. Alexander added a new scale
system was put in that should make the weigh-in process much
easier and more efficient.
Besides the aesthetic changes at the fair grounds, Alexander
stated there will be a few less hogs in this year's competition,
partly due to sickness, but also due to weight requirement changes.
Last year the guideline was 225 lbs. to 280 lbs. This year the
bottom end weight has been increased to 230 lbs.
"We hope that everyone will come out and support our youth,"
stated Alexander. He also put out a plea for folks to participate in
the sale that will take place on Wednesday, Mar. 14. See page 2B
for a complete schedule of events.
So mark your calendars and come out and enjoy a day at the
fair!

"ARSON"
Continued from IA
Detective Amelia Bowling, who works in the Ocala office of
the State Fire Marshal's Bureau of Fire and Arson Investigations
(BFAI), was the lead detective in the investigation and made the
arrest. Detective Bowling determined that prior to the fire; Rains
assaulted the victim, exited the trailer, and returned with a gas can.
Rains then allegedly poured gasoline in the bedroom where the
victim was lying, and set the bedroom on fire.
Rains is charged with first-degree arson to an occupied
dwelling, attempted murder, and aggravated battery with domestic
violence. If convicted on the charges filed by the BFAI, Rains
faces up to 75 years in prison in addition to potential fines and
restitution. An additional charge of possession of a controlled
substance was added by the Dixie County Sheriffs Department at
the time of the arrest.
Bond was set at $200,000 and as of press time, Rains had
posted that bond.

"FATALITY"
Continued from page 1A
Cy Joshua Linderman, 32, of Suwannee, was traveling south on
SR 349 when a deer ran onto the road, causing Linderman to lose
control of his truck. When Linderman swerved to avoid hitting the
animal, he ran off the roadway onto the shoulder and struck a
drainage culvert before overturning.
It was when the vehicle overturned that passenger Steven Scott
Stains, 38, was partially ejected during the rollover, causing fatal
injuries to the Suwannee resident.
Linderman walked to Suwannee and was later interviewed by
the Florida Highway Patrol. No charges have been filed at this time
pending further investigation. A blood alcohol test is also pending.
Friends and adopted family of Stains held a memorial services
at the accident site the following day, Sun., Feb. 18th. The
Fennimore family placed a beautiful memorial in Stains honor.
Stains leaves behind a son, two daughters and his parents.

Humane Society News
Why spay or neuter your pet?
Studies show that spayed and neutered dogs and cats live
longer. It reduces the number of dogs and cats condemned to live
without homes and love. Millions of tax dollars are spent every
year to care for lost, abandoned and unwanted pets...millions more
to destroy those that find no homes.
Spaying females:
-Ends the frantic efforts of a dog or cat to get outside to find a
mate.
-Stops the unwelcome visits by male "suitors" drawn from
blocks around...even when she's kept indoors.
Neutering males:
-Stops the mating drive which reduces the urge to roam.
-Can stop a male cat from spraying.
For either sex, spaying or neutering removes discomfort,
distress and distraction, and frees your pet to enjoy time spent with
you.
Thanks to Napa Auto Parts for allowing us to hold our
adoptions there this past Saturday, This coming Saturday we will
be holding adoptions from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. at CITGO gas station
gn the corner of US 19 and Hwy 349 in Old Town.

Legion News
Tues., Mar. 6, is the Newberry
Post 149 American Legion
Birthday dinner party, a covered
dish dinner to celebrate 88 years
of the American Legion. Post 149
invites all area Legionnaires and
reminds them to bring a favorite
covered dish item to share. The
dinner will begin at 7:00 PM with
an opening ceremony recognizing
the American Legion's eighty-
eight years of continuing service
to America, then dinner and
fellowship of Legionnaires,
Auxiliary members, SALs and
guests.
American Legion Auxiliary
Unit 91 is having a Yard Sale on
Sat., Mar. 3, from 8:00 AM until
noon. They have plenty of items
and need shoppers to come by the
American Legion Post 91 Home
on US-129 five miles north of
Trenton.
Post 91 will have their
American Legion Birthday
celebration on Thurs., Mar. 15,
with a donation dinner from 5:30
until 6:45. The dinner will be
corned beef and cabbage for a

With the US Congress talking
about cutting the funding for our
troops in this war on terror, a little
slogan I saw recently might be a
good one to write on your
envelopes and memos for all to
see. It goes "IF YOU DON'T
STAND BEHIND OUR
TROOPS... PLEASE FEEL
FREE TO STAND IN FRONT OF
THEM!!!" God bless our Armed
Forces.
Remember our Armed Forces'
all around the world in your
thoughts and prayers every day,
and here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and those families of men and
women called to active duty in
service to America, helping out
however and whenever we can.
And remember to keep those
young men in the Alert Team that
visited our area several weeks ago
in your prayers as well, as they
continue their training in service
to our communities across the
Nation.
For God and Country, Wayne
Gravely, Post 149

Steinhatchee AARP

Valentine Meeting


Pictured left to right: Rhoda Moerhing, Lucille Tennis, and
Bobbi Pattison, all of Steinhatchee.
The Steinhatchee AARP had their February meeting with a
Valentine theme and partially decorated for President's Day. A
great pot luck dinner was enjoyed by everyone.
: The program for this month was couples giving their marriage
history and this was very interesting and nice to get to know them
better; of course, the wife and the husband give a few different
views of happenings during their lives together. The couples telling
heir histories were: President Bill & Jacque Cake, Treasurer Bud
& Sue Polhemus, and Jim & Pat Harris. Boy did we find out some
very interesting things about these couples.
Pictures were taken under a beautiful decorated arch of
sweethearts which also turned out to be fun. One of our special
guests was 103-year-old Lucille Tennis and her two daughters,
Bobbi Pattison and Rhoda Moehring, all of Steinhatchee.
Next month will be St. Patty's Day, come visit us and see what
we will have in store for March; oh, and wear green.
If you are interested in joining the Steinhatchee AARP, call
Elaine Howell at 498-3843.

Springhouse Quilter's News


... ... ..
r 4








The year, 2007, is really getting off to a big start with
Springhouse Quilters. Several arc working on Double Wedding
Ring, 9-Patch Pizzazz, Turning 20, Magic Stack and Whack,
Mystery Quilts, Challenge Quilts,
beginner samplers blocks, Red Work Quilts and others that I
am not even aware of. It appears there will be a large display of
completed quilts over the next few months as members complete
some of their quilt projects.
Again this/month, the workshop was the wonderful Petal Play
Redbird taught by Joyce Snoddy. This has been a popular 3-
dimensional block to make and it works up very quickly and is
very pretty.
The community project for this year will be lap quilts for
nursing homes and the kidney center. Each year there are a large
number of these quilts donated by Springhouse Quilters. It is our
desire that these quilts brighten the world of those to whom they
are given. Springhouse members enjoy making these quilts and
donating them to a worthy cause.
The President's Challenge this year will be a new project for
Springhouse. The President has chosen a sample of fabric for
each member to use in making their project. This will be a quilted
pillow cover, quilted on each side using at least two different
quilting techniques on each side of the pillow cover.
,The next regular day meeting of Springhouse will be on
March 13 beginning at 9:00 AM. For information on Springhouse
Quilters, please contact Jan Lilzinger 463-3971 or Lois Scott,
463-2207.

Letter To
The Editor
This letter is in regards to
the Ten Commandments on the
courthouse plaza.
Doesn't anyone realize that
it is not so much where they
are as what they are/ Why is
Dixie County being sued, to
remove the Ten
Commandments? In doing this
the people who are suing the
County is only putting the Ten
Commandments in, front of
more people. If left alone it
would have been just another
monument after a while and I
don't think many people would
have paid any attention to it
after seeing it a few times. As
it is, God put his hands in to
bring his commandments
before as many people as
possible.
Even though the
commandments is a shortened
version it was better than none.
Doesn't any one read what
God says about his word?
Revelations 22:18, 19 tells you
what he thinks about this, there
are other texts but that is the
best one.
In Numbers 23:19 it says
"God is not a man, that he
should lie, neither the son of
man, that he should repent;
hath he said, and shall he not
do it, or hath he spoken, and
shall he not make it good?"
Two other texts that talks
about God not lying is Titus
1:2 and Malachi 3:6.
Since hearing "I am the
Lord thy God" out of the Ten
Commandments, they are
making a liar out of God. Since
this is the only thing that is
said to be written by the finger
of God.
Now as to why they have
remained where they are. God
wanted them there. If he had
not he could have had them
struck by lightening during a
storm.
If anyone thinks 1 am
wrong about the Ten
Commandments and what I
have said, I suggest they turn
to their Bibles and study God's
word. I may not be the
smartest person around but I
do like what God tells me in
his word.


The reason for writing this
is not to push my religion, but
Sto get others to study the Bible
and not let others tell them
S what it says.
Thank all of you for your
patience in reading this and I
S hope you will study to see if I
