By Terri Langford
Last Saturday, Mar. 3, the
2007 Suwannee River Youth
Fair Horse, Heifer, and
Cloverbud shows were held.
While the weather looked
threatening for the better part
of the day, the rain managed to
stay away, only dropping a few
sprinkles now and then.
The Horse Show started


early in the morning with
participates testing. At 10:00
a.m. the Performance Events
began with Showmanship at
Halter, Open Mares, Open
Geldings. Walk Trot, Western
Pleasure, Western
Horsemanship, Obedience, and
Trail. This year's riders were a
tough group to judge as they
all came out ready to win!


Next' were the Speed
Events which included, Pole
Bending, Barrel Race, Stake
Race, and Keyhole Race.
There were some impressive
times ran this year, great job
riders!
Coordinators Joel and
Kathy Layfield announced
early on that the Fair Board
had reduced their number of


trophies to be presented this
year. Both the Junior and
Senior riders' scores were
combined, presenting only one
grand and reserve winner for
each division. They, along
with participates, and their
parents hope that the Board
will review the 4-H rules
before next year's event.
Our hats go off to all the


riders and their horses this
year, for a job well done!
For the first time the
Cloverbud Rabbit Show was
held on the first day of the
Fair. Some 41 Cloverbuds
brought their bunnies to be
judged and learn what they
will need to know when they
can participate in the Rabbit
Show. See "FAIR"page 2A

: Discoveries on the boob tube
Did you watch the Discovery Channel last Sunday night? If not
'you really missed some interesting "discoveries"-the sort of thin,
that makes you want to put your Bible on the shelf and buy a cop;
of An Inconvenient Truth.
S Well, it doesn't exactly make you want to, but if you were t
believe the 8 to 11pm story line, you could come away thinking yot
might as well. Take the business about Noah and the Ark, fo
example.
It seems Noah was an altogether different sort of guy than yoi
might have supposed. He was actually a beer distributor. He had
barge and a route along the Euphrates River. Not a bad assignment
for that period of time, really. No wagon wheels to repair, n
Clydesdale horses to feed and clean up after. So, how did thi
qualify him to put together the enterprise that would save terrestrial
animal life from a destructive global flood?
Well, in the first place, the flood wasn't actually global ir
nature, perhaps because global warming hadn't been invented a
that time. And you just couldn't build a wooden boat 450 feet (30(
-cubits, Genesis 6:15) long, and even if you could it would'
provide enough room for two of every species, plus seven of th
edible sort.
Personally, I always figured you could have gotten by with tw

S It was also mentioned that those of all species who made it ont
' the Ark would have had to drink beer because the seawater was to
brackish. Good thing Noah was a distributor, I guess. But, can yo
imagine having to deal with an intoxicated bull elephant? (Oh sur
;you just tell that big rascal that he can't have all he wants. Right.)
: What followed was even more absurd, if that's possible.
Seems somebody found the tomb of Jesus Christ. Not His temporary
.- resting place (Matthew 28:57-60), but the place where His mortar
:bones allegedly wound up, along with those of His wife, Mar
Magdalene, and their son, Judah.
S Liberals have been trying for years to hook up Jesus and Mar

Letter To The Editor
A few weeks ago a 14-year-old boy and his 4-year-old sister
were riding a Honda 400 ATV at a fast speed, on a road in New
Pine Landing.
-He rounded a curve and hit a small tree. The 4-year-old was
thrown off hitting her nose and right cheek. Her nose and cheek
were bleeding.
The boy was thrown into a ditch and was unconscious with
head injuries and other unknown injuries.
The 4-year-old ran up the road crying and a homeowner
(Willard) asked her what was wrong. She kept saying, "My brother
is dead."
Mr. Willard went to the scene and was with the boy when
Officer Watson #22 arrived followed by C.O.P. #289 Henry who
directed the ambulance to the accident.
It has been known kids under age 16 died from accidents while
operating ATV vehicles.
How very thoughtless of an adult letting children operate such
vehicles without supervision..
Who is responsible?
Our children are precious and should be protected.
Over 1,700 children 16 and under were killed between1982 and
2002. In 2001, for example, kids age 16 and under made up 17
percent of all ATV riders, yet they accounted for 25 percent of all
injuries.
Parents just don't see the risks involved with these ATV's.

Letter To The Editor
Mr. O'Neal brings up a good point about the health and welfare
of our Wounded Troops returning home. However, 1 believe he
went a bit too far to blame it on President Bush or the White House
as he stated. The problem at Walter Reed as well as many other
Military "ARMY" Hospitals have been in disrepair since the
Vietnam era.
I myself spent time at Brooks Army Medical Center and Walter
Reed in 1968 after being wounded in Vietnam. Both Hospitals"
even at that time were in a state of disrepair. This was not the fault
of the staff at these Hospitals but the fault of the Congress and the
Senate for not releasing enough funds to take care of their
wounded coming home.
Let's not be so quick to condemn one person for what is
happening in the world today. Let's. look back and say to ourselves
that once politicians get involved in the war (NOTHING
HAPPENS). Please don't be so quick to think that our soldiers are
not being taken care of. Wounds are treated on the front lines first
at mobile/rear echelon hospitals next and then they are evacuated
to hospitals around the globe. Some of the best of these hospitals
are in Germany, Lanstulle, Heidelberg and Frankfurt. Then they
are off to Brooks or Walter Reed. Keep the folks that's really don't
know what's going on "OUT OF THIS WAR" and we will have a
better outcome.

Letter To The Editor
Some individuals have decided to join the ACLU in a lawsuit
to sue Dixie County over the Ten Commandments monument on
the court house landing. This person or persons have to' -be
outsiders. This Country was founded on the Christian beliefs. This
so called violation of the First Amendment is a catchall phrase itat
the atheist organization uses any time they feel they can make: a
few dollars from our government. Are you aware that our taxes .ay
for the ACLU to operate? These suits that the ACLU files are paid
by the U.S. government. We will pay twice to defend ,the
monument, once for the defense and court time, and then pay the
ACLU through our taxes. It is time for the silent majority to speak
up and take action. I agree with an earlier letter that petitions
should be distributed to show support for the Commandments"on
the court house landing. I also feel if you do not want to see ihe
monument on the front landing at the courthouse-Use the doors at
the rear!! You can reach all the offices from there.

Letter To

The Editor
To whom it may concern:
I would like to point out an
important error in your report
which stated:
"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."
However nowhere does the
1st amendment refer to the
separation of church and state.
The 1st amendment in its
entirety states:
"Congress shall make no
law respecting an
establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise
thereof; or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the
press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the Government for a
redress of grievances."
Note it is specifically
Congress that is forbidden (to
establish a national religion).
As a matter of fact Connecticut
and Massachusetts had official
state religions well into the
1800s.
Sincerely,
Karl Krahmer
Melbourne, FL

Judge Thelma Thompson
did an excellent job in teaching
the young 4-Her's what to look
for in an award winning rabbit.
From the comments made
by parents and grandparents,
who filled the arena, this
year's show was one of the
best!
Congratulations to all the
participants and good luck in
your future showings.
The Heifer Show was held
later in the evening to a full
house. FFA and 4-H members
from all three counties
presented their bovine which
ranged in weight from 325 lbs
to a whopping 1,625 lbs!
There were some amazing
specimens this year and judge
certainly had his hands full in
choosing the winners.
Great job!
This week the Fair
continues with poultry on
Thursday, Rabbit Show on
Friday, Home Economics and
Steer Showmanship on
Saturday and two new events,
the Dairy Goat Milking
Contest and Dairy Goat
Costume Contest on Sunday.
Monday and Tuesday the
much awaited Swine and Steer
Shows will complete the Fair
with the Sale on Wednesday.
Watch the Advocate next
week for the announcement of
the top winners for the 2007
Suwannee River Fair &

Mental Illness Support Group
Sadly we hear almost everyday of someone in our area that has
been diagnosed with a mental illness. Some are bipolar, some
eating disorders, and a multitude of other diseases that fit under the
umbrella of mental illness.
Most of the patients are receiving good quality care from health
care professionals. Our concern is with the families, or care givers.
Many feel left out of the process, or are left to grope in the dark
about what is happening to their loved one. Many have said, 'If I
could only talk to someone who understood what I am going
through."
With this in mind, McCall's Chapel untied Methodist Church is
inviting the families and care givers to meet at the church's
fellowship hall on Thursday, Mar. J5 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the
possibility of forming a support group and what we would like to
accomplish with that group.
The church is located on SR 349 N, seven miles south of the
intersection of US 27, or a mile north of the Dixie County line. If
you would like to speak to Pastor Fred Taylor, you may contact
him at 386-935-0595, with your questions, concerns, or directions
to the church.

United Christian Services of Dixie County, Inc. will be
distributing U.S.D.A. Commodities in Cross City at United
Christian Service building (CR 351 & NE 210th Ave.) on Tuesday,

Springhouse Quilters News


These three Springhouse members arrived all excited for the
Petal Play workshop last Tuesday. They are left to right, Jan
Litzinger, Alice Gilbert, and Faith Stanton.
The Petal Play Redbird workshop for February was well
attended by Springhouse Quilters. Joyce Snoddy conducted the
workshop and gave many tips and ideas for completing the
quilted 3-D redbird picture quilt. This is the second time this
workshop has been offered due to the interest from the
membership.
Anna Gilliam and her committee has been working hard in
getting the 2007 raffle quilt together and ready for quilting. This
quilt is made using lots of blues and many different quilt blocks.
At least 30 members made a block for inclusion into the quilt. It
will be exciting to see the quilt top and how the blocks were all
arranged into the full quilt.
The excitement for the Stack and Whack quilts is still
continuing. The quilts go together so quickly that it makes it a
lot of fun to cut and piece one of these quilts. Several members
have tops ready for quilting. Quilting machines have stayed busy
just keeping up with this work.
We have had some members or family members who have
had some very difficult illnesses. To each of these we do wish
them a speedy recover so their beautiful quilting can continue.
The next regular meeting for Springhouse will be on March 13
beginning at 9:00 AM at the Springhouse Quilt House on
Highway 26 west of Trenton.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Jan
Litzinger 463-3971 or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

FWC Asks Public For Input On

Species Management Plans
People interested in helping Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) scientists hammer out new management plans for two
animals that have lost ground in their battle against the threat of extinction
have the opportunity.
FWC has issued a call for interested persons to take a look at the draft
management plans for gopher tortoises and Panama City crayfish over the
next 48 days and share their thoughts about how to make (he plans better.
Both drafts are on the FWC Web site, and anyone interested in the
future of these burrow-dwelling land turtles or crustaceans can log on to
MyFWC.com, read the plans and offer comments until Aprill 4. FWC staff
will incorporate comments into the plans before the agency's
Commissioners review them at their June meeting.
Members of an FWC gopher tortoise issue team, with input from the
public and other stakeholders, have been working on the draft of the
Gopher Tortoise Management Plan for the past year. The gopher tortoise's
classification would change from species of special concern to threatened
if FWC Commissioners approve a final draft of the management plan.
The plan includes details about improving habitat, increasing
protected habitat, restocking gopher tortoises and reducing the number of
gopher tortoises that die on development sites.
Many other wildlife species share upland habitat and will benefit from
gopher tortoise habitat protection too. Those species include other
imperiled species such as the gopher frog, indigo snake, scrub jay and
Sherman's fox squirrel.
The Panama City crayfish exists nowhere else in the world other than
a 55-square-mile area in Bay County. In fact, the current population
occurs in a mere 18 square miles.
In September, the FWC established the Panama City Crayfish
Stakeholder Advisory Group to help develop the draft management plan.
"The first draft incorporated extensive public input. We are now
looking to Bay County residents to let us know if it meets their
expectations for the species' recovery and the community," said FWC's
lead scientist on Panama City crayfish, David Cook.
If FWC Commissioners approve the plan, the Panama City crayfish
will be reclassified from a species of special concern to threatened on the
state's imperiled species list.
The draft lays out the best management practices to minimize impact
to the crayfish without requiring new permits for road or power line
construction and maintenance, residential and commercial construction, or
;tree farming.
"Activities that now require wetlands permits may not need anything
'additional to accommodate the crayfish," Cook said. "We expect any
additional costs to local governments, developers or residents to be
minimal."
The plan also proposes a no-cost permit to harvest crayfish within the
Panama City crayfish range to accommodate anglers who use them for
'bait.
"It is difficult to distinguish Panama City crayfish from other crayfish
*species, and it is not known to what extent crayfish are collected for fish
-bait within the this species' range," Cook said. "The draft plan proposes
to establish the permit to gather such information."
S- Once the public has adequate opportunity to comment, the plans will
come back to Commissioners for final approval, probably in September.

Speeding Citations During

Operation Safe Ride
Tallahassee The Florida Highway Patrol is releasing
enforcement totals for Operation Safe Ride, a 48-hour statewide
traffic enforcement detail targeting aggressive driving and
speeding that was conducted February 28 through March 1, 2007.
Enforcement totals from the 2-day campaign include the
following:
Activity Breakdown:
Total Citations: 6,783
Speed Citations: 3,445

The Florida Highway Patrol launched the first phase of
Operation Safe Ride on February 26-27, 2004. The campaign was
created in response to a growing concern over aggressive drivers
and incidents of road rage throughout Florida. Operation Safe
Ride features varying traffic themes, seeking to not only curb
hazardous violations, but to heighten awareness toward the
particular theme chosen during each enforcement wave. FHP
troopers utilize all available resources to track violators on every
interstate, Florida's Turnpike, and other major state roads in
Florida where aggressive and hazardous moving violations are
prevalent.

Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia
A college graduate said, "Dad,
now I must choose a field where
my talent can be used to the best
advantage."
"Great," he said. "You can have
that 100-acre cornfield."
You have talents. But they're
worth only what you do with them.
A plain bar of iron is worth five
dollars. When made into needles,
$3,285; if turned into balance
springs for watches, $250,000.
The Living Bible says, "God has
given each of us the ability to do
certain things well. Never be lazy in
your work but serve the Lord
enthusiastically."

New Prospect

Baptist News
God continues to add to
His kingdom; we really had an
exciting time in our revival last
week with a packed house each
night, anointed preaching and
beautiful singing, all
culminating in the baptism of
several converts on
Sunday! Also on Sunday,
Bro. Billy brought two fine
messages, one from John 8:1-
11, and the other from Acts
9:1-6. The more time we
spend in God's service,
the better things run!
We look forward to our
monthly Fellowship Supper on
Wednesday evening, March
14th. Some of our youth and
families will be involved in the
Suwannee River Livestock
Fair next week, and should
have a good appetite built up
for the Fellowship Supper!
Once again, we had
visitors Sunday. We hope that
you'll come back, and bring
others with you...all are
welcome at New Prospect!
Have a good week, and don't
forget to pray for the folks on
the prayer lists, our people in
the armed forces, and our
President and other leaders on
a national, state, and local
level. Come see us, and may
God bless you.

The Word Made Flesh
Mark, Number, & Name
"Of The Beast"
Continued from last
week...Look closely to the Holy
Scriptures in the Book of
Revelation, Chapter 12, Verse 7.
Do not place this scripture, (Rev.
12:7), back at creation when
Lucifer was put out of the original
heaven because iniquity was found
in him. (Read Ezekiel 28:15017).
You are reading in Revelation
12:7 about the time of the Gentile
- our day. In 1 Thessalonians
4:16, the Apostle Paul says, "For
the LORD HIMSELF shall
descend from HEAVEN with a
SHOUT WITH THE VOICE OF
TE ARCHANGEL, and with the
trump of God..." Notice the voice
that the Lord is using. At this time
the Lord is using the voice of the
Angel Michael, who is the arch
angel of God. These black-robed
spirits that are in these professing
ministers are fighting one against
another right in heavenly places
and won't wake up to realize that
"NOW" is the accepted time. They
have already taken on the mark of
the beast and will not come out
from under this Mark. They are
serving the creature more than the
creator. In the middle is where the
carnal is. Remember the beast has
eyes before and behind, but can't
see in the middle. The wings that
carry the beat are full of eyes, but
are under the figure 6-6-6 and
cannot enter into the completion
(perfection). You can look out in
front more or less and read about
it. You can look behind and read
about it, but you can't see in the
middle. Why? The reason you
can't see in the middle is because
the carnal fellow is still thee. The
Revelation of Jesus has not come
yet. You are not letting the Holy
Ghost bring the "light of life" into
your innermost being. This light of
life is coming in the presence of
Jesus Christ now. "And this is the
record that God hath given to us
eternal life, and this life is in His
Son. He that hath the Son hath
life: and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life." (1 John
5:11-12). Solomon said in the
Book of Proverbs 39:18, "Where
there is no vision, the people
perish..." "The Apostle Paul
wrote, "It is not expedient for me
doubtless to glory. I will come to
visions and revelations of the
Lord." (2 Corinthians 12:1)
Continued next week...

their contributions throughout the past year.
SPresident Cheryl Nekola led the meeting and
had everyone introduce themselves. Reverend
Benny Hodges gave the invocation followed by
the Pledge to the Flag.
President Nekola gave an update on the
Chamber activities for the past year and also
some insight into plans for this coming year.
Progress on the completion of the Fort Fanning
was a topic of discussion. We are also looking
to hold the Festivalof Lights at that location this

Fanning Springs Chamber Of Commerce

Holds Their Annual Banquet


Dixie County Has Been Awarded

Federal Funds Under The

Emergency Food & Shelter

National Board Program
Dixie County has been chosen to receive $6,986.00 to
supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.
The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by
the Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of
representatives from the Salvation Army, American Red Cross,
United Jewish Communities, Catholic Charities, USA, National
Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, and United way of
America. The local board was charged to distribute funds
appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and
shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
A local board made up of the mayor, elected county officials,
local representatives of several charities, and a cross section of the
population will determine how the funds awarded to Dixie County
are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter
programs run by local service agencies in the area. The local board
is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds
and any additional funds available under this phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local
agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary
non-profits or units of government, 2) have an accounting system,
3) practice nondiscrimination, 4) have demonstrated the capability
to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 5) if they
are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary
board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply.
Dixie County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter
funds previously with United Christian Services of Dixie County,
Inc. participating. This agency was responsible for providing
mortgage or rent payments for ten families, and utility payments
for 50 families in 2006.
Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for
Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Betty
Nell Mills at P.O. Box 670, Cross City, FL 32628, or call 352-498-
5136 or an application. The deadline for applications to be
received is March 15, 2007.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3 "Heaven & Hell"
Continued from last week... To these things the novitiate spirits reply,
"This is not possible. Whence have they a body? Does it not lie with all
things of it dead in the grave?" To these things the angels respond merrily,
"We will demonstrate it to your sight." And they say, "Are you not person
in perfect form? Look at yourselves and touch yourselves; and yet you
have departed from the natural world. That you have not known this
before now is because the first state of life after death is altogether like the
last state of life before death." On hearing these things the new guests are
astonished and exclaim from joy of heart, "Thanks be to God that we are
alive, and that death has not extirpated us!" I have often heard novitiates
instructed in this manner concerning their life after death, and have seen
them gladdened on account of their resurrection. I have often heard the
conversation of angels with new spirit and once about the consummation
of the age and the destruction of the world. And because those new spirits
had hither to known nothing of heaven and of hell nor of the life of people
neither after death nor of any other sense of the Word than the literal, they
gave responses void of reason and full of paradoxes. They said that by the
consummation of the age they understood the destruction of the world; by
the coming of the Lord then, His appearing with the angels in a cloud; by
the Last Judgment, sentences decreeing salvation and damnation upon all
the dead after their resurrection from the grave.
When the angels had heard these things they asked with smiling
countenance, two or three times, whether the spirits said these things from
faith of heart which is believed to be the truth; or from historical faith,
which in itself is tradition from others; or from the indulgence of the
imagination. To these questions the new guests replied with indignation,
"What have we said from the indulgence of the imagination, or from mere
tradition! Are not these things truths revealed in the Word? They must be
of faith of heart." When these things were said the angels courteously
answered, "It does no harm for you to believe thus, but that it is not so,
you shall hereafter be instructed." Immediately after this was said, little
flames appearing like tongues flowed down from heaven upon the heads
of the newcomers, by which they were inspired with the affection of
knowing from reason how they had faith; and they exclaimed, "What is
faith but truth? Where is truth in its own light except in the understanding?
If they understanding be in thick darkness, what then is faith but a
somnambulist? And if it this faith be added confirmation from natural
light separate from spiritual light, it becomes a bat." Please stay up with
me; I will be saying more what the angles have shown me. Continued next
week...


Area Churches To Hold A

Community Prayer Service

On March 17th At The

Dixie County Courthouse
On National Prayer Day the Shofar was blown and the voice of
God went forth. When you hear the Shofar it demands a response,.
it represents the assembling of an army, it represents the breaking
and tearing down of strongholds; that day it happened!
God is saying to His children; now it is time to awake out of
your sleep and slumber...your heritage, your character, your
standards are on trial now. This is what the Ten Commandment
stand for, what is right and what is wrong!
In Ezekiel 36:26-28 it says...A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you and I will take away the
stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
And I will put my spirit within you and cause you to walk in my
statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments and do them. And ye
shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and ye shall be
my people, and I will be your God.
In Nehemiah 4:20...In the place therefore ye hear the sound of
the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us. Our God shall fight for us.
Please join us, along with area churches on Mar 17 on the
steps of the Dixie County Courthouse at 10:30 a.m. as we pray
for the keeping of the Ten Commandment monument. In prayer, all
things are possible!


As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S.
Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of
the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle
who is facing forward with a full frontal view -- it is Moses and he-
is holding the Ten Commandments!
*DID YOU KNOW as you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the,
two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on
each lower portion of each door?
*DID YOU KNOW as you sit inside the courtroom, you can see on. ,
the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display
of the Ten Commandments?
*DID YOU KNOW there are Bible verses--etched in stone all over
the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.?
*DID YOU KNOW James Madison, the fourth president, known as
"The Father of Our Constitution," made the following statement:
"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the
capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of-
each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to'
sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God".
*DID YOU KNOW Patrick Henry, that patriot and founding father
of our country said, "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too
often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by
Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
*DID YOU KNOW every session of Congress" begins with a
prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the.
taxpayer since 1777?
*DID YOU KNOW fifty-two of the 55 founders of the
Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in
the colonies?
*DID YOU KNOW Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts
would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law
would begin making law...an oligarchy...the rule of few over
many?
*DID YOU KNOW the very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay,
said "Americans should select and prefer Christians as their
rulers." How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we
have done for 220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and
unconstitutional?

We trained hard, but it
seemed that every time
we were beginning to
form up into teams we
would be reorganised. I
was to learn later in life
that we tend to meet any
new situation by reor-
ganising; and a wonder-
ful method it can be for
creating the illusion of
progress, while produc-
ing confusion, inefficiency
and demoralisation.

Pam Edmonds of Cross City brought in this picture of an owl.
Apparently the normally nocturnal bird couldn't sleep and enjoyed
watching Pam's boys practicing throwing a fishing rod in their
yard. As they threw, he would turn his head and watch as the lure
flew across the yard. Pam was able to get this close up shot of the
beautiful creature. She wished she had color film in her camera,
but for some reason it was loaded with black and white. No
worries, Pam; it is still a great picture!

Medicare Part B Deadline
Approaching
By ClifCopeland
Social Security Public .-I '.i, Specialist
If you didn't sign up for Medicare Part B medical
insurance when you first became eligible for Medicare, you now
have an opportunity to apply. But time is running out. The
deadline for applying is March 31, 2007. If you miss the
deadline, you will have to wait until 2008 to apply.
Medicare Part B covers some medical expenses not
covered by Medicare Part A (hospital insurance), such as doctors'
fees, outpatient hospital visits, and other medical supplies and
.services that are not covered by Medicare Part A.
When you first become eligible for hospital insurance
(Part A), you have a seven-month period (your initial enrollment
period) in which to sign up for medical insurance (Part B). After
that, you have to pay a higher premium unless you were covered
through an employer's group health plan or a group health plan
based on a spouse's employment. You are given another
opportunity to enroll in Part B during the general enrollment
period, from January 1 to March 31 of each year. But each 12-
month period that you are eligible for Medicare Part 1B and do not
sign up, the amount of your monthly premium increases by 10
percent.
You can learn more about Medicare by reading our
electronic booklet, Medicare (SSA Publication No. 05-10043) at
www.socialse(curity.gov/pubs/10043.html. You may also call us
toll-free at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) to ask for a
copy. Or visit the Medicare website at www:medicare.gov. You
may also call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800 -633-4227;
TTY 1-877-486-2048).

The Buddy Show
by Buddy Mardn
Sunday's Best
Sometimes I think free agency wrecked professional sports. Other
times I think it has been the greatest thing since garage door
openers, TV clickers
and e-mail.
In simpler times, we .' '
knew all the players in "'
every league, their .
batting averages, ...'*
scoring averages and "' i-.
touchdowns scored and
tackles made. There
was an occasional
trade, but rosters
seldom changed. We
could keep up. It was a more personal time for sports fans. Our
team was our team.
In today's rent-a-player climate, we lose track of the players and
develop split loyalties.
If, say, Johnny Damon is your fave, how can a Red Sox fan
suddenly pull for a Yankee?
The upside is that the Yankees don't win all the time; there is hope
for Arizona Cardinal and Detroit Lions and maybe even the
Bucs.
Late last week, the Bucs Nation was abuzz with the word that
Jake Plummer had been obtained by Jon Gruden's club for a
fourth-round draft choice. But before Tampa Bay fans could
celebrate, The Snake crawled off and retired rather than report to
the Bucs. Talk about rejection!
Talk radio lit up in both Denver and the Bay Area. Out in
GColorado, most Broncos fans were saying "Good riddance!" Bucs
fanis couldn't quite understand the move.
One caller to the pinching-hitting Nanci Donnellan, aka "The
Fabulous Sports Babe" on WDAE, made the point that John
Gruden seemed to consider himself a r p ,hl l-.oi.r ..t hi 4. 'I [i down
quarterbacks. "He keeps looking for Rich Gannon and he's not out
there," said the caller.
Then came the news Saturday that the Bucs had signed Jeff
SGarcia and worked out a deal for the rights to Plummer, who will
then be traded to another team.
So the Bucs are doing something, even if it turns out to be wrong.
Change is a very good thing when you stink.
Quick Jump Starts
1-L Memo to Jon Gruden: Let's hope for your sake that Jeff Garcia
"di.IIi' decide to retire, too,
.; jf.ESPN and CBS don't start giving us a reasonable count on
personal fouls and a shot clock graphic, I'm going back to
listening to basketball games on Internet radio (ifI can find them).
1. Ijf you want to root for a sport that doesn't coddle or tolerate
rich insufferable, egomaniacal athletes, go for the Iditarod.
4, Talk about your ultimate sacrifice for a teammate: Ron Springs
-giving up a kidney for former Dallas Cowboy defensive back

highest paid employee is FSU coach Bobby Bowden?

A few years ago we ran a story here about an arsonist
tuning out to be a fireman. How quaint! A person's hobby,
pyromania, also provides her or him with job security. This might
be an absurd comparison, but in a way it reminds me of Tiger
Woods. A few weeks ago, The International pulled the plug, citing
the lack of a title sponsor and poor TV ratings to the inability to
attract T.. '. few weeks later, tie PGA Tour announced that the
July 4th event will be moved to Washington, D.C., with the Tiger
'Woods Foundation as the sponsoring agency. Of course,
everybody denied there was anything brewing all along. Tiger
taketh away, Tiger givetlh.
Cheesy Lines
--Phil Fullmer got a two-year extension on his contract at
Tennessee, but no rise. If he really wanted to live up to the
team's name, he could Volunteer for nothing.
--One of the players who stood up to the notion of moving the
New Orleans Saints to San Antonio after Hurricane Katrina was
Joe Horn, all of which got him a ticket out of town. He was
released Friday, but at his own request. Would it be right or wrong
to say the Saints blew off Joe Horn?
--New ESPN football analyst Bill Parcells says it's definitely "the
last time I'm coming back to TV" and that he's done with
coaching because "it's too much for a person like me to fight."
Seems as though Parcell's Cowboys nemesis, Terrell Owens,
caused a Tuna Meltdown.

contribution of our board members and volunteers our tournament

Social Security Website Now Even
Easier To Use
By Clif Cqpeland
Social Security Public Affairs Specialist
Social Security has introduced a new home page design
at www.socialsecurity.gov and it's easier to use than its highly-
acclaimed predecessor.
Because more and more people are doing business on the
Internet, Social Security is committed to making it easy for you to
conduct your Social Security business online. The redesigned
home page will help you find what you're looking for faster and
more efficiently.
Some of the more noticeable changes to Social Security's home
page include:
S easier access to Frequently Asked Questions, one of our
most popular features;
more drop-down menus instead of long lists of links;
S a search box located directly on the home page
a more visible login button for people who already
receive benefits and have a password; and
a quick reference list of links to our most popular online
services.
Our most frequently used online services include
applying for benefits online, replacing a lost, stolen or damaged
Medicare card, requesting a proof of Social Security income
letter, changing your address or phone number, and finding the
nearest Social Security office.
Another popular feature is our list of Frequently Asked
Questions. This service alone gets 27 million visitors each year.
The questions and answers are easy to find and can be searched
'by specific subject matter.
In 2006, more than 50 million people visited the Social
Security website www.socialsecurity.gov. In 2007, we expect
that number to grow, and visitors to the site will find it easier to
navigate and more responsive to their searches for- specific
subjects.

Above is a photo of the Dixie County Humane Society at our
adoption day this past Saturday at the CITGO gas station in Old
Town. We had great success again this weekend and found loving
homes for many of our dogs. We would like to thank all of you
who came out to support us and appreciate the donations you gave.
Stop by and see us any Saturday in downtown Old Town. We
may have a dog or 6at you might be interested in giving a good,
permanent home to as they so deserve. We have a variety of
breeds from large dogs to small dogs. We also have a variety of
ages from puppies to adults. Maybe you would prefer a cat. We
have many varieties of these too.
This coming Saturday look for us again at the CITGO gas
station on the corner of US 19 and Hwy 349.


A great many of those
who 'debunk' traditional

own which they believe
to be immune from the
debunking process.

Take Stock in Children Scholarship Application


Deadline Approaches
Bv Rena F. Violette, Lake City Community College
Take Stock in Children program specialist
What is Take Stock in Children (TSIC)? It
is more than an opportunity to provide an
education for a child; it is an opportunity to
change a child's life forever. TSIC improves
the lives of youth by providing college
scholarships, mentors, enrichment activities,
and a support program designed to prepare
students for success. The program was
developed as a solution to some of the most
critical problems facing people of the state of
Florida which are high dropout and youth
crime rates. Take Stock in Children's 96
percent success rate has proven to overcome
obstacles such as child poverty, academic
failure, and youth crime.
The local TSIC Program is administered
through the Lake City Community College
Foundation. Since 1995, the Foundation has
purchased or acquired 281 TSCI scholarships
for deserving lower income students in the
five-county district (Baker, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, and Union counties). There are
currently 142 TSIC students attending high
school in the district and 79 TSIC students
using their scholarships at LCCC.
Qualified students from the district are
selected after completing scholarship
applications during the last quarter of their
eighth-grade year. Applications for this year's
program are due. April 16. Students' and their
parents) or guardians must sign a contract
making several pledges: remain drug and
crime-free; maintain satisfactory grades (2.0
GPA); meet with a mentor an hour per week;
and adhere to the school code of conduct until
graduation. In turn, they are given the promise
of a college scholarship and the support of a
caring mentor. If a student successfully meets
the criteria throughout four years of high
school they are awarded one of two
scholarships: a two-year scholarship to Lake
City Community College or a two-plus-two-
year scholarship which provides two years of
education at LCCC and two years of education
at an institute of higher learning. Those who do
not fulfill their contracts lose their scholarship
and their place in the program.
How can you help? You can actively
change a child's life with the gift of hope for


the future by becoming a mentor. Sir Winston
Churchill said it best, "To each there comes in
their lifetime a special moment when they are
figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered
the chance to do a very special thing, unique to
them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy
if that moment finds them unprepared or
unqualified for that which could have been
their finest hour."
Since January, which was National Mentor
Month, volunteers from Baker, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union counties were
recruited to serve as mentors for the next
student selection to take place in May 2007.
Having an adequate number of mentors is
important because students cannot sign for
their scholarship without being matched with a
mentor. Mentors complete an application,
undergo a background check, and attend a
mentor orientation training class prior to being
matched with a student. A mentor becomes a
role model, a tutor, and a friend. Mentors guide
their student match toward a college education
and a successful life.
Other ways community members and
organizations can help are through private
contributions, planned gifts, payroll
deductions, and special event fundraising.
These funds are usually matched 100 percent
by the state of Florida and the Florida Prepaid
iFoundation. These are the main sources which
fund the scholarships purchased for the TSIC
program. For the past six years, the S & S
Invitational Charity Golf Tournament has been
a large contributor to both the Foundation and
the TSIC program. This year, the S & S
Invitational Charity Golf Tournament will be
held, on April 20, at the Southern Oaks Golf
Club. The golf tournament will benefit Haven
Hospice, the Foundation, and Take Stock in
Children.
Please take time to consider volunteering as
a Take Stock in Children mentor over the
upcoming month. You can make a
difference...take part in shaping the future of
our community's youth!

Lake City Community College. She can be

Rep. Will Kendrick Named
To Key Councils And
Committees
Florida House of Representatives Speaker Marco Rubio (R-
Miami) recently completed the Council/Committee
assignments as preparations for the upcoming Legislative
Session begin.
State Representative Will S. Kendrick (R-Carrabelle) was
named to several key committees that are of particular interest
to his constituents of District 10, a House District that covers
all of Madison, Taylor, and Hamilton counties and parts of
Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson, Dixie, Levy, Alachua, &
Columbia Counties.
Representative Kendrick, who was first elected to the
Florida House of Representatives in 2000, is serving his final term due to term limits. His Council/
Committee assignments include serving as Chairman of the Committee on Conservation & State
Lands, as a member of the Environment & Natural Resources Council, Budget & Policy Council,
and the K-12 Education Committee.
As Chairman of the Committee on Conservation and State Lands Kendrick said the greatest thing:
that could be accomplished is "for us as a State to understand what our state lands inventory is:
total acreage, intended uses, and the measures being taken to preserve these lands for future
generations".. As Chairman, Kendrick's committee will look at key issues including land-
management for all state lands including those under Water Management District control and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issues that come before the House.
As a member of Environment and Natural Resources Council, Kendrick will have a role in
looking not only at areas under his own committee but also Water Management Districts,
Agribusiness issues, the Department of Environmental Protection, and new Energy initiatives that -
are developing. This council will oversee both the policy & budget functions of these important
issues.
Serving on the Policy and Budget Council will further Kendrick's ability to follow those same
issues and this council gives final approval to the budget before going to the entire House ofi
Representatives for passage. "Having served in the appropriations process for the previous 6 years,
this is an area I truly enjoy and understand," said Kendrick.
Serving on the K-12 Education Committee is going to be enjoyable because of the fact that the
tenor in the Legislature is that it is time to tweak what we have accomplished in past sessions to.-
make it work for all children. "Our #1 priority should be to do whatever it takes to help children
succeed," Kendrick said. "Having served 14 years on the Franklin County Schdol Board before
coming to the Legislature, I remember and know many of the struggles of districts across this state.
It is important that we give school districts not only the tools but also the flexibility they need to
provide a quality education," continued Kendrick.
Some of the issues that the K-12 Committee is expected to look at includes textbook adoption.
procedures, FCAT, teacher retention, and career tracks for those not inclined to not take the'-.
academic track.
Kendrick summed up his expectations of the 2007 Session by giving this view. "During the 2007
Session the people of Florida, through the Leadership of Speaker Marco Rubio, will be heard. We
will tackle the tough issues including education and escalating property taxes along with 100 great-
ideas that Floridians have expressed as important to them. This Session will truly be about.
Floridians," Kendrick concluded.
