One Man Killed Another

Injured In Boating Accident

Above is a picture of the 1998 17-foot Duracraft boat two Lake City men were traveling in when they struck a
tree, claiming the life of one and seriously injuring the other. The picture in the right-bottom corner shows a
clearer view of where the tree impacted the boat.


By Terri Langford
Last Thursday, March 22, a
Lake City man was killed, and
another injured while fishing
in the Suwannee River.
According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
investigators, the two men
were traveling upriver from the
Rock Bluff Boat Ramp in
Gilchrist County when they hit
a cypress tree, traveling
approximately 40 miles per
hours.
Several Dixie residents


along the river heard the crash
and called 911 before going to
the crash scene and helping the
injured men back to the bank
where they were met.by Dixie
County EMS and law
enforcement. Both men were
airlifted to Shands Hospital.
Timothy Neal Mitchell, 57,
was later pronounced
deceased. His passenger,
David Clarence Yanda, also
57, received serious injuries
and remains in the Gainesville
hospital.


The boat was a 1998 17-
foot Duracraft, equipment with
a trolling motor and 70 hp
Johnson outboard motor.
FWC is continuing their
investigation into the accident
and has not filed any charges.


Approval Pending For


Tri-County


By Briar Keathley
Despite recent rumors suggesting the
Certificate of Need (CON) for the 60-bed Tri-
County Hospital, which Ameris Health Systems
is trying to build in Chiefland, was granted by
the state's Agency for Health Care
Administration, it has not been granted,
according to AHCA representatives.
"I got a call Friday evening saying AHCA
approved the CON," stated Dixie County
Commissioner Buddy Lamb. "I made an
announcement at the First District Reunion on
Saturday and now I have to recant that statement
because I have now been informed that the CON
was tentatively approved due to two issues that
need to be resolved between Ameris and
AHCA."
Ameris Health Systems Consultant Frank
Schupp confirmed Lamb's statement that there
are still two issues that need to be resolved and
stated, "We are cautiously optimistic that these
issues can be resolved."
Schupp did not elaborate what these two
issues are.
In December, AHCA denied Ameris'
application for a CON for various reasons
including that "the need for the proposed project
is not demonstrated." In the state of Florida, a
CON must be granted before a hospital can be
built.


Hospital
Deciding to appeal AHCA's decision,
Ameris filed an appeal in January and the case is
currently being handled by the State of Florida
Division of Administrative Hearings.
On Monday, North Florida Regional
Medical Center filed a petition for leave to
intervene.
"It's not a formal opposition because
nothing has been granted," Schupp said.
In the petition, it states that "North Florida
would be substantially and adversely affected by
any AHCA decision to approve the Ameris
CON application." It further states, "North.
Florida does not oppose approval of the CON
application, should AHCA determine that its
initial decision should be reversed and that
circumstances warrant approval of the CON
application."
According to Lamb, who has been in contact
with North Florida Regional Medical Center
Administrator Jamie Thomas, "What (Thomas)
conferred to me is that North Florida Regional
wants to make sure that the promises made to
the community in Ameris' application for the
CON would be adhered to."
As of press time, Lamb was in Tallahassee
and stated he would be speaking to State
Representative Will Kendrick regarding the
hospital and will provide the Advocate with an
update for next week's edition.

Stolen Boat Case..

Solved Suspect

Found In Gadsden


County Florida
By Terri Langford
The Dixie County Sheriff's Office (DCSO) was pleased to
report another burglary case had been solved with the arrest of a
Quincey, Florida man and the recovery of a boat and motor stolen
in December of 2006.
According to Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, Robert S. Dees of
Suwannee reported the theft on
December 6. The 2005 Triton
aluminum boat, trailer and 90
S hp Mercury motor and trolling
motor were valued at over
$25,000.
Investigators began by
entering the stolen property into
the National Data Base, which
would alert other law
enforcement agencies to be on
the look out for the property.
The three-month long
investigation led officers to
Quincey, Florida and with the
Samuel DennisRedd aid of the Gadsden County
Sheriff's Office, the DCSO was able to track down the stolen
property and make an arrest.
Samuel Dennis Redd, 34 of Quincey, was transported to the
Dixie County Jail on March 8, where he was booked and charged
with Dealing In Stolen Property.
Bond was set at $50,000. at Redd's first appearance and has
since been released from custody.


Five Receive Injuries


In Rollover Accident
By Terri Langford
This past Sunday, March 25, emergency medical crews and law
enforcement responded to an accident on CR 351 where the driver
received serious injuries and her four passengers received minor
injuries in a rollover accident.
According to Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Trooper Glen
Ganus, the accident occurred at approximately 12:40 a.m. The
driver, Alisha Hope Ottinger, 17 of Old Town was traveling north
at an unsafe speed when she began to round a curve, but lost
control and ran off onto the shoulder. When Ottinger attempted to
get back onto the roadway, she overcorrected and began to spin,
crossing both lanes before running off the road again and
continuing to spin sideways before overturning two and half times,
hitting three trees while rolling.
Ottinger was transported to Shands UF where she was treated
for serious injuries. Her passengers, Ashley Hanshew 18, of Old
Town, Charles Tippins, 17 of Cross City, Christopher Douglas, 22
of Cross City, and Patricia Owens, 18, of Trenton, were also
transported to Shands UF where they were treated for minor
injuries.
It was noted that none of the passengers, or the driver, were
wearing their seatbelts.
Damage to the 2003 Chevy PU was estimated at $10,000.,
Charges are pending upon,completion of the investigation into
the accident.

Members of the DCHS Brain Bowl team are all smiles as they enjoy the fruits of their labor of placing second in an 18-team
tournament.

The DCHS Brain Bowl team led by Will Gove, Shian Knuth, Katie Thornton and Erik Cundiff, played an 18 team tournament in
Marianna on the campus.of Chipola College and finished second, losing to Marianna High 165-115 on March 16th. Will Gove finished
third in scoring for the tournament and Katie Thornton was eleventh.
The team was put together a couple of weeks before the tournament and with four sophomores, came close to winning it against
Marianna's four seniors. DCHS beat top seeded Holmes County in the semi-finals. Other members of the DCHS team were Liz
Damron, Krissy Locke, Jonathan Cooper and John Kelley. The team was coached by Diana Locke and George Anderson.
"The accomplishments of these students borders on being incredible," stated Locke. "The other teams had been together all year
long and competed in many tournaments, while this little team from Dixie came in and stole the show."
The Team has qualified for the National Championship to be held in Chicago in May 25-27. Pending School Board approval and a
fund raising drive, this team may have more things in store for it.
All Dixie District teachers, elementary through high school, should take pride in this team. You are the reason for it. If anyone is
interested in helping this team go to Chicago, please call George Anderson at 498-6419, or Diana Locke at 498-6431.

On Polar Bears and Bathroom Stationery
No doubt, you've heard about Knut,.the three-and-a-half month
old polar bear cub that recently turned up at a zoo in Berlin,
Germany. Cute little fellow. Even eats-porridge for breakfast, just
like the three bears in the Goldilocks home invasion narrative.
Knut's mama gave birth to him and a sibling, then refused to
nurse them. By the time the zookeepers realized what was
happening, it was too late to save one of the cubs, but they were
able to bottle-feed Knut back to health, and just last week he was
able to come out.
Let me re-phrase that. We don't want to confuse Knut's sexual
orientation with that of Largo's city manager, who was recently
fired when it was learned that he was planning to have a sex
change operation. Rather let us just say that Knut made his first
public appearance.
Before their efforts were thwarted, so-called "animal rights"
activists were demanding that little Knut be euthanized, like he was
some sort of terminally ill animal. They contended that raising a
i:olar bear in captivity was degrading to the noble creature's status
on the food chain or something like that, and they were insisting
that he'd be better off dead.
S Of course, that would logically apply to any animal in a zoo, so
'what's their point? And isn't this the same mentality that sheds
Jerocodile tears because polar bears in the Arctic wilderness are
losing habitat and perhaps even drowning in the icy waters because
-of global warming?
While we can understand that environmental whackos (of
i ,lot about polar bears, one might think they'd have a little better
perspective on the subject of bathroom stationery, or as it's
sometimes referred to among the working classes, toilet paper.
It was recently disclosed that, in a New York City 5th Avenue
apartment, there dwells a family that, although both parents are
;upscale professional writers, they have no need to define this
plebian commodity. That's because they don't use it. Not at home,
,and presumably not anywhere else, though it seems that this could
present significant problems on extended business trips..
Colin Beavan and Michelle Conlin are not merely vegetarians,
they adhere to a dietary regimen that, if you fed it to your hogs, you
would be violating their animal rights. The family apartment uses
so little electricity that they could probably just cancel the service
and get by on a few flashlight batteries each month, except that
they'd either have to dispose of their batteries (a no-no) or re-
charge them, which would require electrical service. A no-win
situation.
And they don't have a toilet, or at least not one of the conven-
,tional sort. What they have is defined as a "home composerr" I
don't know what that is, but I don't think I want one in my house.
As for how this family deals with the total absence of toilet
paper, I'm not too sure I want in on the details of that, either.
However, I am always willing to contribute a helpful sugges-
fion. Since we need to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, we
need to grow a lot more corn to make ethanol, a chemical which is
used to dilute the gasoline in your tank, but is not recommended for
diluting the driver's attention span and reaction time.
More corn means more corn cobs. Lots more corn cobs, only an
estimated .00001% of which would be used in the manufacture of
corn cob pipes. The rest could be used as a substitute for toilet
paper.
Look at it this way: Corn cobs were good enough for Daniel
Boone and Davy Crockett, and those guys were real environ-
mentalists. Sure, they killed bears and made hats out of raccoon
hides, but at least they didn't cut down trees to make toilet paper.

All bodies of water are subject to the tide-pr6ducing
forces of the sun and moon, but only when oceans and
continents meet are the tides great enough to be noticed.


Letter To The Editor
Bush To Attack Mars
I have it from a reliable source, the Gainesville Sun, Bush is
going to attack Mars. It was on page 4 or 7, 1 forget which, I
didn't have time to read the article, but the headline said it all. I'll
have to paraphrase from memory because iny wife already threw
out that paper. Bush to attack Mars, Iraq Premier heard telling
United Nations Chief.
This may be hard to verify because 1 think that the Iraqi
Premier has already been killed in a suicide bombing. Also, the
United Nations Chief is a Chinaman and nobody can understand a
Chinaman unless they are another Chinaman.
Anyway, I'm sure that the reason would be because they have
weapons of mass destruction. I mean, did you ever look at one of
those Martians, they are only about four feet tall and they have
large heads with high foreheads. I figure that they have lots of
brains because there is so much room up there for a large brain
that would make them very intelligent and able to develop highly
sophisticated atomic bombs and spaceships.
Now I was against us attacking Iraq and God forbid that we
attack Iran, the consequences would be awful, gasoline would go
.to eight or nine or ten dollars a gallon if you could get it and I
don't like that idea. But Mars, now that sounds like a good idea to
me.
Why I'll bet that Russia and Iraq and Iran and Israel would all
join with us as allies in defeating this otherworldly fiend. We
could all shoot all of our nukes and all of our weapons of mass
destruction at Mars.
Then, when the war was over we would all be friends in victory
and with all that highly advanced spaceship and bomb technology
that we would get from the defeated Martians, we could control
the rest of the world.
People, please help me in talking this up. George Bush needs to
leave a good legacy and this would solve so many problems all in
one swell swoop. No more nuclear proliferation and no more need
to bomb and fight Iraq because they will then be our friend.
This has no downside. No need to worry about how to end it
and get out because we will just shoot our nukes and stay home.
Nobody gets killed, the price of gasoline will go down, not up.
The Iraq war is ended for us and Iran is our friend so we don't
have to attack them and all those weapons of mass destruction are
on their way to Mars.

Springhouse
Quilter's News
Springhouse quilters will be
working for the next few
weeks finishing up their 2007
raffle quilt. This is a sampler
quilt, made in various shades
of blue, using the sampler
blocks made by members last
fall. Anna Gilliam and her
committee assembled the quilt
and it is now in the frame at
the guild's quilt house just
waiting for members to stop by
and work on the quilt. The
raffle quilt will be given away
during the guild's quilt show in
October. Members will soon
be receiving tickets for the
raffle.
For the next several weeks
Springhouse guild members
will be meeting on the 1st and
3rd Thursdays, 9:00 AM, to
work on items for the quilt
show gift shop. Elaine Zahn,
the chairperson, is heading up
the gift shop and will be
encouraging members to help
with the gift shop items. This
will be in addition to the
regular meetings on the 2nd
and 4th Tuesdays each month.
The community project for
the guild this year will be lap
quilts for nursing home
residents and the kidney center
in Trenton. Members are urged
to complete their lap quilts as
quickly as possible so the
quilts may be delivered to the
centers.

Springhouse Quilters contact

Log Cabin
Quilters
Log cabin Quilters met Thurs.
Mar. 22, at the Levy Co. Quilt
Museum. Our day started with 16
quilters who' came over from the
villages. Some had never been our
way and it was to meet and greet
each one. Eleanora Orlando was
invited to come and tell her trip to
Romania. Where she took quilt
supplies to teach the women to
quilt. They have no machines, no
fabric or thread. She told of her
time there and how they wanted
her to stay. She and her husband,
John, are missionary's and a trip it
was always remember.
Our watermelon quilt is done
and we will be taking donations
from now until the Festival, when
we will give it away at the Queen
Contest.
Greg and six boys were out
Tuesday and did we have a great
time planting tomatoes, beans,
squash, peppers, cucumbers,
peanuts, and garlic. Some of the
boys the have never planted but
they learn in a hurry and we hope
one day they will have a garden,
as they now know how to plant.
They learned how to fertilize and
water and in time they will harvest
their work. Thanks Lancaster.
Our Dinner was chicken &
dumplings, noodles, cheese &


mac. slaw, caulillower, greens,
okra & tomatoes. Betty's lemon
pie, Marie's homemade cookies,
and so much that we had to put in
extra tables. The ladies really
enjoyed their lunch.

Fever Control
(NAPS)-It's important for
parents to learn the best ways
-'to control their children's
Sfevers-especially during the
Winter months. Fortunately,
there are a number of steps
that concerned parents can
take.
There are ways that par-
ents can take care of their
children's fevers.

First, don't sweat it.
SRemember that fever is the
body's way of fighting infec-
tion, and while a fever should
be broken, it is generally not
a cause for alarm.
Next, help your child keep
his cool. Parents can use a
soft gel sheet called Be Koool
to actually absorb and dis-
perse heat from their child's
body. Parents only need to
place the strip on their child's
forehead for it to work.
Be Koool is self-adhesive
with a cooling effect that lasts
for eight hours. The strips
work alone or can be used in
conjunction with doctor-pre-
scribed or over-the-counter
medication. The strips do not
need to be refrigerated and
they work well for soothing
bumps, headaches and over-
heating that can occur during
a soccer game or other activ-
ities embraced by children on
the go.
Finally, if your child's fever
does not break, call your
health care professional. He
or she will be able to decide
the best course of action.
To purchase the strips, visit
.a pharmacy or www.drug
'store.com.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007


Suwannee Volunteer Fire

Department Update
1 would like to give you an update on the Suwannce Volunteer
Fire Department activities.
I became involved with the Suwannee Fire Department on
year ago this month when I was asked by then District
Director/Chief Chad Reed to be the Suwannee Fire Chief and
reorganize the fire department. I would like to bring you up to
date on some of the things that have happened this past year.
To date we have 21 names on the volunteer list, not all of
them are full time in Suwannee but when they are in town they do
attend training classes and participate in activities with the fire
department.
We also had 21 people complete the first CPR class we had in
Suwannee and four (4) members of the department completed the
First Responders course, we also had one member that completed
the 160hr fire fighter one class in Cross City.
Not bad for the first year with all new people being involved.
Here is the number of emergency calls we have had in the past
12 months..
1. Four (4) fire calls
2. Twenty seven (27) medical emergency calls
3. Two (2) lost person calls in which both were found and one
was given temporary shelter in Suwannee.
4. Several storm alert calls and watches with an emergency
command post set up at the fire department here in Suwannee.
5. Two false alarms on a burglary alarm that failed.
Additionally we held 26 training sessions at the fire house and
in the field learning the equipment we have at the firehouse.
As you can see it is much busier in Suwannee than anyone
could anticipate and thanks to the volunteers here every
emergency was responded to within five minutes, no matter what
time the calls came in.
The next time you see one of our volunteers please thank them
for the time and dedication they have given the community.
You have also recently seen much activity going on at the
firehouse on remodeling over the last several months. The
firehouse was totally renovated inside and out as well as the front
of the fire house being paved, we now have a more professional
facility that we can all be proud of here in Suwannee. We can
thank Mr. Arthur Bellot for this, he went above and beyond to
make this happen.
We have a training session every Thursday night at 5pm at the
-fire station so if your in town please feel free to stop in and visit,
nieet the volunteers and see what has been done inside the
Sfirehouse as well.
Again, 1 would like to re-emphasize that without the hard
work and dedication of the volunteers in Suwannee none of this
would have been possible.
If you are interested in being a volunteer please contact one of
us.

WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida), a veteran of Vietnam, today voted in support of the U.S.
Troop Readiness, Veterans' lHealth and Iraq Accountability Act
(H-R 1591), which provides $95.5 billion in emergency funds for
military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Congressman Boyd
released the following statement on this legislation:
"Let me begin by saying that I take my job as the
representative of Florida's 2nd Congressional District very
seriously. Every vote I take is a vote that I take in the name of the
people of North Florida and a vote that I believe is best for our
great country and its people.
"In this same vein, my vote today in support of the Iraq
supplemental bill in the House of Representatives is what I
believe to be the most responsible and appropriate approach to the
most vital issue facing our nation-our military action in Iraq. I
have made it very clear that it is not the role of Congress to act as
general or to micromanage the war. It is the role of Congress to
hold the Administration and our civilian military leaders
accountable for our progress in Iraq, and that is what this
legislation does.
"We are spending $2.5 billion a week-money that we are
borrowing from China-to prosecute this failing war. No one
wants to fail, so we have to start doing something different. This
bill creates benchmarks and consequences for the Iraqis to take
control of their own country and for our troops to come home.
The bill sets specific dates for redeployment of our troops if these
benchmarks are not met. Additionally, this bill makes sure that
our troops on the ground have the resources and equipment they
need.
"There must be accountability in Iraq. We are not winning in
Iraq by any standard of measurement, and to date, this war has
cost thousands of lives, tens of thousands wounded and maimed
for life, and hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars. The civilian
leadership of this Administration is not taking our military in the

Administration to develop a solid, well thought out plan to bring
our troops home safely and soon.

Faith Baptist Church News
What a gorgeous day God blessed us with today. We had a
large crowd. Sunday School attendance was up, we had lots of
visitors in both services and it was just a glorious day. In the
morning service the Crenshaws sang "Who Am I" and in the
evening service, Jim Fisher sang "Holy Spirit Flow Through Me".
Both did a great job. Bro. Jackie preached his usual 2 good
messages. God is so good!!!!!
Remember to pray for someone in need this week. Invite a
friend, neighbor or co-worker to come with you to church. You
never know when YOUR invitation may be just the one someone
is waiting for. Also pray for our AWANAS class on Wednesday
night. The children love it and are having so much fun under the
direction of good teachers.
We want our visitors to know what a blessing they are to us. If
you're looking for a church home, we invite you to share ours.
There is a lot of love among our people and we would like very
much to share it with YOU. If you were just passing through or
visiting some of our members, we invite you back anytime.
Until we meet again, we wish you happiness and good health.
May God keep you safe and well this week and may you be a
blessing to someone. See you next week.

Card Of Thanks
I wish to thank my family members, many friends and
neighbors for all they did for me and my family during the passing
of my wife, Geneal.
I have never seen so many beautiful flowers, nor eaten so much


delicious food.
Words alone can't express
you all.
Thank you,
J.V. Brock

Card of Thanks
The family of Neil Hurst
wishes to express our heartfelt
gratitude for the outpouring of
love and concern shown for us
during this difficult time. We
appreciate the food, flowers,
cards, visits, phone calls and
especially your prayers.
We are thankful to live in a
supportive community such as
ours.

To Present

"The Rose, An

Easter Suite"
The Lighthouse Word
Church will be presenting a
special Multi-Media Easter
Musical entitled, "The Rose,
An Easter Suite," from
Integrity Media on Sunday,
April 8th at the 10:30 am
Service. The musical,
featuring well known
contemporary and traditional
Easter music, as well as video
footage from the Biblical film,
"Matthew," is a wonderful way
to celebrate the death, burial,
and resurrection of Jesus
Christ. Bring your family and
friends with you as we
'remember the sacrifice that
,God made for all of us. Call
;493-1554 for more
'information.
:The Word Made Flesh
Mark, Number & Name
of the Beast
Continued from last
:week...The Prophet Isaiah was in
;,a.very special place when he wrote
'Isaiah 6. He actually saw the Lord
hitting g on a throne arid he saw the
seraphims. He said, "His train
filled the temple." And then Isaiah
'began to cry out... "Woe is me!
-For I am undone; because I am a
-man of unclean lips." (Isaiah 6:5)
:You see, you don't realize what
the MARK OF THE BEAST
-reall,, is until you can see your
'on carnal self. "This "you" is the
;person that you are not looking at.
,You are trying to see it in
somebody else and put them in
their place. If you could see how
:carnal you are, and then put
"ourself where God wants you to
be, thil puts you to where "you"
can hear from Heaven. Now I
'hope you can see that your
-.carnality and your fleshly self-will
actionss (from the time you were
old enough to know right from
t'wrong) have caused God all the
troubles. He has had with you
-.from your birth. This is regardless
of how well you are educated, or
.how much you have learned. If
5:'ou are ashamed of the purity and
,glory of Jesus Christ, then you are
".not going to be a part of it. I can
,,guarantee you this. The time has
-come when you must rise up in
.His NAME, stand in His NAME,
"and glorify His NAME. Amen! I
,'know today the devil is not going
.'to trick me anymore as far as
saying "look back yonder or look
out yonder ahead of us." If the
man or woman today that is
ministering God's word of truth
can't tell me of a divine
resurrection that comes in the
FIGURE THREE that wraps
around the devil and his powers
for destruction, "don't want it."
What is it? He that confesseth that
Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh is
of God. (Read John 4:2-3) May
we continue to bow our heads and
humble ourselves to what God
wants us to be today. Amen. If
you don't stay up with me every
week, you won't know what I am
Saying. Continued next week...I
come not in my name but in the
name of Christ Jesus.


my appreciation. May God bless

Grits Good Any Meal, Any Time
St. George, S.C., (March 23, 2007) Once almost exclusively
a staple of Southern cuisine, grits have made their way from the
family breakfast table to the lunch and dinner menus of some of
the nation's finest restaurants.
"For generations, grits have provided daily
nourishment through good times and bad from small farmhouse
kitchens to fancy dining rooms- but almost exclusively served in
the deep South," said Linda Carman, baking expert for Martha
,White, the makers of Jim Dandy Grits. "Now, thanks in large
,part to young creative lowcountry chefs who appreciate their
culinary roots, grits have become trendy across the country and
'served for breakfast, lunch and dinner."
Simply made from dried, ground corn, grits are a
coarse version of corn meal and polenta. In fact, the popularity of
:pelenta may have contributed to the mainstream acceptance of
-grits. Polenta and grits are prepared by cooking water, broth, milk
,or other liquids to make a delicious creamy complement to meats,
.seafood or rich sauces. When it comes to updating traditional
:*cooking techniques, cooks and chefs around the world have
Shown there's more to cooking grits than using butter, salt and
:pepper.
"Shrimp and grits is one of the most popular combinations,"
'said Carman. "Chefs have created an amazing variety of shrimp
:and grits recipes, but one of the simple classics is a stir-fry of
:shrimp and peppers served over creamy Cheddar cheese grits."
Grits also give us a reason to celebrate! On April 13-15, 2007,
;grits lovers from around the country will gather in St. George,
:S.C. for a three-day festival celebrating the savory dish.
Boasting the highest per capital grits consumption in the
United States, St. George will host more than 45,000 festival
goers from across the country who have the chance to visit a grist
mill and take part in the annual grits eating contest both
sponsored by Jim Dandy Grits.
For more grits recipes and information about the World Grits
Festival, visit www.worldgritsfestival.com.

Meet Dr. Michael & Bobbi

Lowery, the New Senior Pastors at

Suwannee Fellowship
Dr. Michael & Bobbi Lowery have been called to serve as the new
senior pastors at Suwannee Fellowship! Suwannee Fellowship is one of
the three churches that serve Suwannee, Florida, and it is the only non-
denominational church that serves
all people of all faiths in the .

Fellowship has been without a '

great church grow!
Dr. Michael & Bobbi Lowery
have had a long career in the

New Prospect Baptist News
As the bloom of spring brings new life to barren branches,
birds, and other wildlife, we are reminded of the approaching
Easter season and the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus
Christ. Once again, it was great to be in church on a beautiful
Sunday, as our choir enthusiastically sang praises to God, and Bro.
Billy very ably delivered God's messages from Luke 19:28-36 and
Mark 14:53-54. We have many people on the prayer lists and,
once again, we urge you to be diligent in your prayers for them.
On Sunday, April 8th, we will have dinner at the church after
the morning services, followed by an Easter egg hunt for the
children; we will have no night service. On Monday evening,
April 9th, our Ladies' Ministry will have their visitation, and the
Pastor/Deacons will also meet. A Semi-annual Associational
Meeting will be held at Mt. Paran at 4:00 P.M. on Thursday, April
12th.
We were pleased to have visitors again Sunday, and welcome
you back, along with all others. Have a good week, and please
remember to pray for our people in the armed forces and our
President and oth& leaders...may God bless you.
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
"Heaven & Hell"
In the Christian world it is wholly unknown that heaven and
hell are from the human race, for it is believed that. in the
beginning angels were created and heaven was thus formed; also
that the Devil or Satan was an angel of light, but having rebelled he
was cast down with his crew and thus hell was formed. The angels
never cease to wonder at such a belief in the Christian world and
still more that nothing is really known about heaven, when that is
in fact the primary principle of all doctrine in the church. Since
such ignorance prevails they rejoice in heart that it has pleased the
Lord to reveal to mankind at this time many things about heaven
and about hell, thereby dispelling as far as possible the darkness
that has been daily increasing because the church has come to its
end. They wish for this reason that I should declare from their lips
that in the entire heaven there is not a single angel who was created
an angel of light and cast down; but that all, both in heaven and in
hell are from the human race; in heaven those who lived in the
world in heavenly love and belief, I hell those who lived in internal
love and belief, also that it is hell taken as a whole that is called
the Devil and Satan the name Devil being given to the hell that is
behind, where those are that are called evil genius, and the name
Satan being given to the hell that is in front, where those are that
are called evil spirits. The angels said that the Christian world had
gathered such a belief about those in heaven and those in hell from
some passages in the word understood according to the mere sense
of the letter not illustrated and explained by genuine doctrine from
the word: although the sense of the letter of the word, until
illuminated by genuine doctrine, draws the mind in different
directions and begets ignorance, heresies, and errors. The man of
the church also derives this belief from his believing that no man
comes into heaven or into hell until the time of the final judgments;
and about that he has accepted the opinion that all visible things
will perish at that time and new things will come into. existences
and that the soul will return into its body and from that union men
will again live as men. This belief involves the other that angels
were created such from the beginning: for it is impossible to
believe that heaven and hell are from the human race when it is
believed that no man can go there until the end of the world. Love
you, continued next week...

The pastorate at Suwannee Fellowship permits Dr. Michael & Bobbi
Lowery the opportunity to bring their progressive, veteran leadership style
to a congregation with a heart to grow! Dr. Lowery says of the Suwannee
people, "they are a wonderful people with big hearts and intellects that
demand filling"! He believes church today should be relevant and have'
answers to the questions people are asking. Since we ro longer live in an,
agrarian society, and people want to know "why" God works in certain
ways, Dr. Lowery is planning to preach and teach in a manner that meets,
the needs of people today!
Consequently, Suwannee Fellowship is undergoing a facelift and a
ministry make-over. First, the old dilapidated sign will be replaced, and
the property will be landscaped and receive a make-over. Second,
ministries old and new are being considered for the weekly service line-
up. The 10:30 AM Sunday Service is being made over with a real music
mix to serve everyone. Traditional music that should never be forgotten is
being blended with Southern Gospel sounds and newer praise songs.
Young or old, those that attend will find a play list that satisfies! A great
breakfast will often lead off the Sunday AM service; as every pastor
knows, people love eatin' meetings !
Starting March 27th, Tuesdays at 11:00.AM will be a luncheon /
service for those that can meet during the day. Lunch will be free, and
music will largely consist of the old favorite songs of the church. A Bible
study will take place along with prayer for every need! Business people
desiring a mid-week lift, seniors that hate to drive at night and those that
must work on Sunday morning will find the food and fellowship of this
unique worship opportunity really refreshing! *
To make all of these great plans a reality, people and leaders are
needed to help, and the Thursday Mid-week Service at 7:00 PM is to train
Christian leaders, young and old! Musicians, ushers, and leaders of every
kind are needed along with singers, teachers and ministers. Even those that
have never been a singer, teacher or leader can serve! Training will bq
available for all! In addition, there will be a first Saturday Evening Gospel
sing and dinner. The first will be held on Saturday March 31st. Dinner will
be served at 5:30 PM with music starting at 7:00 PM. Our musical guest
will be Michael Chauncey and Friends! Plans are in the making for big
service events for Easter, Pentecost Sunday Camp Meeting, Mother's Day
and July 4th!
If one wants to be a part of a church that is for the whole family and
see Dixie County influenced for God, plan to get involved at Suwannee
Fellowship; a great church is born again! For more information, contact
Dr, Michael Lowery at 352-542-2656 or drpastor@aol.com.

More than 218,000 new cases of prostate
cancer ore expeed to be diagnosed in 2007.
More then 27,050 deaths will occur due

Approximately onein six menisdiagnosed

develop bone metastoses.

Quick Fcts: Bone Metastases
More than 10 million people worldwide have

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

Governor, Cabinet Celebrate
April As Water Conservation Month
--State encourages conservation education to help protect and preserve Florida's water--


TALLAHASSEE Governor Charlie Crist
and the Florida Cabinet today recognized April
as Water Conservation Month. The Florida
Department of Environmental Protection (DEP),
together with the Florida Section of American
Water Works Association, endorsed the
proclamation, reaffirming the state's
commitment to protecting and preserving
Florida's water supply and quality.
"Recognizing April as Water Conservation
Month helps promote the importance of water
conservation, encouraging Floridians to become
environmental stewards at home and in their
community," said DEP Secretary Michael W.
Sole. "By pursuing state and local partnerships,
adopting growth management practices and
implementing conservation strategies, we can
protect our water quality, as well as ensure a
reliable supply of water for the state's natural
resources and water needs for our growing
economy."
With more than 7,700 lakes, 4,500 square
miles of estuaries and bays, more than 50,000
miles of rivers and streams and countless
wetlands throughout the state, protecting water
quality is vital to maintaining our quality of life.
In 2005, DEP's Clean Water State Revolving
Fund was recognized by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency for the State's efforts to
promote water conservation and reuse. Since its
inception in 1988, Florida's State Revolving
Fund program has awarded more than $2.7
billion in loans for water quality protection


projects, 'including funding 106 water reuse
projects totaling more than $384 million.
Along with public water quality, restoration
and conservation programs, Floridians can adopt
simple habits to help protect and conserve
water:
Fix water leaks. Homeowners lose
an average of 25 gallons of water a day through
leaky water devices.
Take shorter showers and install a
low-flow showerhead. For an investment of $10
or less you can save $50 to $75 per year on
water bills and $20 to $50 or more per year on
energy bills.
Run your washing machine and
dishwasher only when they are full and you
could save 1,000 gallons a month. If you wash
dishes by hand don't leave the water running for
rinsing and you can save 200 to 500 gallons a
month.
Repair dripping faucets. If your
faucet is dripping at a rate of one drop per
second, you can waste 2,700 gallons per year.
Do not leave sprinklers or hoses
unattended. A garden hose can pour out 600
gallons or more in only a few hours.
Reuse household water for
irrigation.
Replace conventional toilets that
use up to five gallons of water per flush with
water-efficient, low-flow toilets.

The Buddy Show
by Bu/drl MAartin

Gators hope to gain 'home

court' edge in Georgia Dome

Many sports fans
have hated Notre
Dame, tile New York
Yankees and Green. ..,
Bay Packers over the
years. Today they are "' '
hating the Florida
Gators for much the
same reason.
Even their harshest
of critics would have to
admit that the Gators have got it going on in IuI.11. *r'.l"li these
days.
Just take a look at what has happened in football and basketball
at Florida since the fall of 2005 after Urban Meyer was hired. The
Gators' football record that year was 10-3.
In the latter part of '05, Billy Donovan's launched a
championship run in the Southeastern Conference and, as an
underdog, also romped to the national title with a 33-6 record.
By April 2006, Athletic Jeremy Foley's two squads had rolled
up a combined record of 43-9, but were just getting started.
Seemingly feeding off the success of each other, Meyer's
football team ripped through the '06 regular season I 1-1, won the
SEC over Arkansas and then clobbered an unsuspecting Ohio
State Big Ten champion, 41-14, to win the national championship
and go 13-1.
About three months later, in the same Georgia Dome where
Meyer's Gators won the conference, Donovan's Gators salted
,-.., .iii.. .i, SEC by beating Arkansas. Winning football and
basketball conference titles against the same school in the same
building is something ...i....i .I.. II..ye tteam has ever done, or
will likely ever do again.
Barriers keep coming down Gainesville and'most anything
seems possible these (lays for the guys in orange and blue.
Friday night, Donovan's defending national champions moved
one step closer to doing what Duke last did, claiming back-to-
back national titles, as they survived a scrappy Butler team in the
first round of the Sweet Sixteet to earn another trip to the Elite
Eight. Donovan's Gators are only three games removed from the
ultimate prize.
Today, the current UF basketball team boasts a 32-5 mark.
If you break it down with the two sports, that makes a
combined total of 88 wins, 15 losses, two national championships
and three SEC titles with yet another national trophy hanging in
the balance.
Since Donovan and Meyer are neighbors in the same cul de
sac, do you suppose all the genius is in their water?
There are many moving parts on Donovan's squad and a wealth
of talent, but The Man on Friday night was AI Horford, who
dominated both ends of the court, carrying his Gator mates on his
back.
Aside from his stellar free-throw shooting that led to 16 points,
plus seven rebounds, Horford's four blocked shots were crucial -
especially the two in the final minute and prevented Butler from
a huge upset. The Gators had trailed by as many as 9 points before
notching the 65-57 victory and advancing to today's game against
Oregon for the right to return to the Final Four -- in, of all places,
Only one baseball player
has had his number retired-
by three different teams.
Nolan Ryan's number was ,
retired by the Angels (#30),
the Astros and the Rangers
(#341.


COMINGS







SOON!


Atlanta.
Hey, the Georgia Dome is getting to be a home field/court
advantage for the Florida Gators.
How long can this beautiful life last for Gator fans? Well, this
kind of success is rare and fragile, so it can be altered or
torpedoed by the slightest tilt of the axis, leading to seismic
change. Donovan, for instance, could up and take the Kentucky
job.
Do I think it would happen? Nope, but when Bill talks openly
in his press conference about it as he did Friday, it makes Gator
fans nervous.
"All I'm going to say ... that has nothing to do with me,"
Donovan replied to a questioner. "It has everything to do with
Kentucky. I'm not in control of any their decision-making
process. The only thing I'm focused on right now is our basketball
team and trying to coach them and enjoy every moment with
them because it's been such a
fun group."
It could become a lot more fun if Florida beats Oregon today.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Sometimes I wonder if Tiger Woods isn't in danger of
making golf boring.
2. Can somebody please explain why Steve Alford bolted Iowa
in favor of New Mexico?
3. This column has a secret compartment where I hide my
jewelry, like Mike Vick's water bottle.
4. I predict Kentucky unless it was able to lure Donovan
away from Florida, which I doubt will ever happen will rue the
day it dumped Tubby Smith.
5. If you watched the gallant effort of Southern Illinois in a
heartbreaking loss to Kansas, did I, you must have admired the
play of Salukis point guard Jamaal Tatum, college basketball's
version of Steve Nash.
Short Stuff:
The Mr. Two Bits of Miami Dolphins football, Denny Sym, aka
"Dolfan Denny," died last week at age 72 after cheering on his
favorite NFL team for 34 seasons ... Two of the freshman
drawing the coaches' eyes in the Gators spring football practice
are tight end Aaron Herandez of Bristol, Conn. and cornerback/
athlete Joe Haden of Fort Washington, Md.
This Just In
OK, so maybe Vanderbilt does deserve kudos for making it to
the Sweet Sixteen, mostly for the job done by Coach Kevin
Stallings. Vandy president Gordon Gee is basking in the limelight
and declaring the Commodores are saviors of the student-athlete
role on campus. But seemingly, Gee lays it at the feet his grand
plan to save the world of college athletes. "There is a wrong
culture in athletics, and I'm declaring war on it," said Gee. What I
find interesting is that Gee is the former president of Colorado and
Ohio State, two schools which recently suffered black eyes for
handling of athletic impropriety.
Nothing but 'Net

I. You never see a fish on the wall with its mouth shut.
2. Yes, I know I need a haircut.
3. 1 never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an

2nd Annual Women In The Outdoors

Guided Airboat Fishing A Success


1..*- or "- -
IIo omten /i The Outdoor'
This year the Women In The Outdoors (WITO) Guided Airboat Fishing event was another great
success. The weather was a little cool, and it even rained on us, but it didn't stop 35 ladies and 13
airboat drivers. There were a total of 38 ladies that joined WITO this -year; with only three not
participating, you could say they had a great turnout!
The WITO event started on
.' Friday night, March 2 at the
STrail Riders Club. There, they
.' were treated to a meal of
-, grilled pork and chicken with
:PH e d sall the fixins. During dinner the
Group participated in a silent
Auction and games. The ladies,
I t and a few gentlemen, left with
SAt nn e some very nice WITO items!
Saturday morning members
met at Shired Island Park at
7:30 a.m. Thirteen men
showed up with their airboats,
Swilling to take the ladies on a
day of saltwater fishing, rain or
L-R: Debbie Haldermen, Laurice Potts, and Haley Herring earned shine. This year the event
bragging rights on landing three of the biggest Redfish of the day. included a "Biggest Fish"
contest and the ladies were
-anxious to get out on the water.
S-" At noon the boats blew in for a fabulous lunch, which consisted of mullet, swamp cabbage, and
ill the trimmings. For a lot of these ladies, this was the first time they had even tried swamp
-abbage, and looking at the empty pot, I would say it was a culinary hit.
After lunch and before the ladies went back out, those who felt they had caught the biggest fish
: lathered up for the measuring. Three ladies earned the bragging rights for having one of the biggest
:-edfish. However, Haley Herring got the grand prize with her 26 inch "Red". Barbara Weber had
-the biggest trout, which measured 27 inches.
-- Herring won a new rod and reel and Barbara won a thermo cell. Both of these prizes were
-donated by Parker Pawn & Gun.
-i The ladies went back out until 5:00 p.m., enjoying every
:ininute they could of their adventure. The ladies stated they had
fun catching their fish, even though the smaller catches had to be
thrown back. However, those fish that were kept were thrown in
1ja cooler jnd v.ent home. deiinrrd for the frying pan.
The WvITO 0roglrajm i, a ireat program for introducing ladies
-,to the great outdoors. We had one or two with us this year that ,'
never had been fishing and several that never had the thrill of an
Sailboat ride; with a lot coming back for the thrill again.
This event would not be possible if not for all the volunteers.
WITO would like to thank Ronnie Hunt for doing the cooking
Friday night. To Johnny and Mary Lord, Diane Lord, Larry
Wallace, Hazel Pyle, Peter Stone, and Ronnie Howell, thank you
for cooking Saturday. As usual you did a fabulous job. To the "
boat drivers, Roy Skinner, Ronnie Hunt, Matt Wallace, Tim
Lord, Mike Osteen, Dale Colson, Rob Summers, George .
Bowens, Cedric Lord, Adam Anderson, Buddy Dubois, Mickey
Watson and Larry Wayne Underhill, you made the fishing trip;
we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you!!! You Barbra Weber holding th
received many compliments from the ladies. Thank you also to biggest trout caught for the
Mike Osteen and David Capo for taking time to catch the fish for day.

Spring Has

Sprung for

Tim Jordan,

Now It's Time

to Go Racing
22-Year-Old to Get Season
Started at Waterford
Speedbowl This Weekend
According to the calendar,
spring has come around. To
some, that means shorter
sleeves, to others it means
cherry blossoms on trees, but
to guys like Tim Jordan, it
means only one thing that
racing season is about to begin.
Jordan is getting restless
after waiting through the off-
season and is looking forward
to taking part in the first
regular season oval track race
in New England this ,weekend,
as Connecticut's Waterford
Speedbowl opens it gates fio
the Budweiser Modified
Nationals. Jordan will take
part in the three-day event with
his #47 Late Model and he's
ready.
When the season starts at
Waterford, all eyes will be on
Jordan after a stellar 2006
season. That was when he
won six races and the Late
Model championships as a
rookie. You might think that
would play a part in Jordan's
anticipation this time around,
but he's not even thinking
about the trophies that were
earned last year.
Jordan got a head start on
his 2007 season last weekend
during an open practice session
at Waterford. He used it as an
educational experience and is
now hard at work in the shop
applying what his team has
learned.
The Budweiser Modified
Nationals will take place at
Waterford Speedbowl ttis
Friday, Saturday and Sundy,
March 30th-April 1st.
For more information on
Tim Jordan, please contact
Mike Twist at 207-590-1786

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Cross City Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards

What happened?
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a
right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 01/04/07 show that our
system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes
both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (Five) (HAA5). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms
per liter (ug/L) and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 117 ug/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 ug/L, the
average level of HAA5s over the last year was 150 ug/L.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems
with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of'MCL over many years may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are'dding to lower our DBPs levels: The Cross City Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers &
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection to resolve this issue.
We anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12 months.

For more information, please contact Mike Cassidy at (352) 498-3306 or Ferrell 'Cricket' Spurlin at (352) 498-5488

Please share this inbrmnation with all the other people who drink this water: especially those who may not have received this
notice directly (fbr example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). Vou can do this by posting this
notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by Town of Cross City.

2006 Dixie County Teacher Of

The Year Visits Capitol


Carol Petrone and Rep. Will Kendrick
2006 Dixie County Teacher of the Year Carol Petrone met
with Rep. Will S. Kendrick (R) Carrabelle Monday at the Capitol.
Rep. Kendrick discussed her concerns with education and the
two House Bills that he has sponsored this year, House Bill 511
for Uses of the District School Tax and House Bill 965 dealing
with career education.
Rep. Kendrick said, "It is a pleasure to congratulate Carol on
this recognition and have her take the time and effort to come to
Tallahassec to visit with us and let us hear of the issues and
concerns that are important to teachers in their efforts to provide a
quality education to all students."
With the 2007 Legislative Session into its second week, issues
and concerns of citizens throughout Florida are being voiced
throughout the halls of the Capitol. Education is always a priority
and a concern at the top of everyone's list.

Members Of Joppa Lodge No. 4 & Dixie Divas...On The Move Again

Their Families Visit Masonic !' I

Home In St. Petersburg ,. |


Pictured left to right: John Whittenburg; Barbara Whittenburg; W

Daniels, Secretary of Joppa Lodge; Lee Layne; Bill Bucholtz, senior
Deacon of Joppa Lodge; Martha Bucholtz; Vickie Daniels; and W Guye
Daniels, Senior Warden of Joppa Lodge.
On Saturday, March 17, 2007, several members of Joppa
Lodge No. 4 and their families visited the Masonic Home in St.
Petersburg as part of the Masonic Home Homecoming and St.
Patrick's Day Celebration.
The Masonic Home is the State recognized 5-star nursing home
and assisted living facility for Masons, Eastern Star and their wives
and/or husbands.
There were lots of festivities at the celebration including chili
cook-off, antique car show, hot dogs and hamburgers and the grand
opening of the First Lady's project which was renovating the
resident's rooms.
It was and uplifting experience and everyone enjoyed the trip.

Local Quilting Club Forming
The Dixie County Quilt Club is now forming and looking for
members. The first meetings will be held April 10 and April 24,
beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the FirstDistrict Community Center on
SR 349. Experienced quilters and learners welcome.
Call 542-9438 for more information.

Humane Society News
With the warm, humid weather upon us, you will notice an
increase in the flea population.
Adult fleas are not only a nuisance to humans and their pets,
but can cause medical problems including flea allergy dermatitis,
tapeworms, secondary skin .
irritations and in extreme cases, ,
anemia in your pet, which can 6
be life threatening, especially in "'*..
very young or small animals.
There are literally hundreds
of products on the market for
flea control on pets and the
premises. For successful flea '
control, infested pets and
premises need to be treated at
the same time. Fleas along
with ticks can be controlled on lam ready to adopt...

preventative medication to your
pet. Be careful though when choosing one of these products. Read
all product labels as certain products can be used only on dogs and
ifot on cats. Some list specific treatment procedures for puppies
and kittens. Do not treat pets with the same products used to treat
the inside of your house or the yard.
If in doubt about what to use, talk to your veterinarian. They
will help you decide on what treatments will work for you.

4-Pets Sake
Oh good grief did I ever goof!! Don't know how your name
was forgotten on the February thank you list for your support in the
antique auction. Believe me once you met Woodhouse you can
never forget her, she brings joy and laughter into everyone's life.
Mary Woodhouse, please accept our humble apologies.
As you know most of our pets are aged, blind, or have been
badly abused. They need the extra care that a normal family would
have difficulty in providing because it is extremely time
-consuming. Since we are no-kill this will be their forever home, so
until time and romping room become available, and in all fairness
to those that remain we cannot accept any more pets. Therefore,
we are attempting to keep a ledger for folks that lost, found, or are
looking for a family pet to adopt.
Perhaps we can be of help to match pets to families by referring
one to the other. Two families have called us looking for small
.inside dogs, one a grandmother that needs a pet companion and the
other is a couple.
Word from Eye of the Eagle is a "thank you" for your kindness

Legion News
The American Legion Family
in Newberry suffered a loss last
week. Doris Cook, the
American Legion Auxiliary Unit
149 President, passed away on
March 21, 2007. The members of
Auxiliary Unit 149 held an
Auxiliary graveside service after
the regular funeral service by her
nephew, Reverend Andy Cook of
the Bronson Road Baptist Church.
Doris was buried at Union Baptist
Church where she attended. She
was an important part of the
American Legion Family at
Newberry Post 149 and will be
missed greatly.
It is that time of year that the
Department of Florida begins
reminding the individual Legion
Posts to send in the Consolidated
Post Report. The Consolidated
Report, or CPR as it is called, is
more than just an outline of what
the individual Post has achieved in
the past year.
SApril is Children and Youth
Month in the American Legion.
The Florida Child Welfare
Foundation is a separate
corporation to fund efforts that
deal with problems affecting
children. The only source of
income is through contributions by
individual members of the Legion
family. Grants are awarded to riot-
for-profit programs that benefit
children. These are just a few of
the programs available in the
American Legion.
Newberry Post 149 meets on
the first Tuesday of the month at
the Post home on SR-26 just on
the west side of Newberry, and
Tuesday, April 3 is the night. On
Monday and Tuesday, April 2 and
3, the Post is hosting a tool show.
Remember our Armed Forces in
your thoughts and prayers each
day, and here at home,
watch over our Legion Family,
veterans, widows and the families
of those called to active duty in
service to our Nation, helping out
however and whenever we can.
For God and Country, Wayne
Gravely, Post 149 American

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE; CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007


H.K. Edgerton & Terry Lee


Edgerton Speak At Local SCV


Southern Heritage Luncheon


:0' f



2, ta, ,


to 1865. He talked about those
who served as uniformed
military troops, civilian
workers supporting the
military by running the farms
and businesses that were left
behind by their owners who
had gone to war. H.K. noted
that it was the Blacks that
supported and protected the
women and children left as
well. They did not run, they
stayed behind with their
families.
H.K couldn't leave without
talking about the Confederate
Flag or Southern Flag. The
last few years, this symbol of
Southern Heritage has come
under the gun. While it is true
that some have misrepresented
the flag, the fact of the. matter
is the Confederate flag was
sewn to represent the South
and its people, black and


white.
The room was silent as
H.K. recited a poem written
about the flag, "I Am Theiir
Flag, Salute Me With
Reverence."
H.K. and Terry both
believe in their heart of hearts
that we as a nation can not go
off and fight other wars until
we finish the war that began so:
many years ago; a war that:
divided our country and pitted:
brother against brother. That:
division still exists.
The Dixie Defenders,:
Camp 2086 would like to:
extend their gratitude to H.K.
and Terry for their time and
message.
If you would like to learn
more about their message, you:
can visit their website at
hk@csaweb.org.

By Terri Langford
Last month The Sons of
Confederate Veterans, Dixie
Defenders, Camp 2086, held a
luncheon at the First District
Community Center in Old
Town. The event was open to a
variety of Camps throughout
the area and their members.
Special guests, H.K. Edgerton
and Terry Lee Edgerton were
quite the drawing card as they
are known for their work as
Southern heritage advocates
and their relentless pursuit for
the healing of our nation
through responsible education.
Prior to the luncheon, I had
the privilege of spending time
with these brothers who hail
from Asheville, North
Carolina. H.K, as his friends
call him, has donned the cover
of many newspapers and
periodicals, dressed in his
Confederate Grays and
carrying a Confederate Battle
Flag. His message is simple;
that we must be proud of our
Southern heritage, whether
black or white, and we as
Southerners must support and
protect those emblems that
honor those who fought during
the Civil War for the South.
I wasn't too sure what to
think as the two black men
came into the Advocate, one
holding a Confederate flag.
However, I have known
Commander Joe Sparacino of
the Dixie Defenders, Camp
.2086 for many years and knew
he would not lead me astray
from a good story. What first
was to be an interview quickly
turned into one of the most
interesting discussions I had
been involved in for some
:time.
'The Southern solider was
a man of such bravery and they
:should not be forgotten," H.K.
:said.
S"Our heritage is under
attack, from our symbols, such
;as the Confederate flag, to the
.true history of the South,"
.added H.K.
A past president of the
,Asheville chapter of the
:NAACP, H.K, has tirelessly
:devoted his time to bridging
the gap between the blacks and
'whites. He and Terry both feel
:that today's history is far from
:accurate; that it has been
tainted by the political agenda
:of many from the past, and
,continues today.
"The best thing that can
,happen to this nation is for the
:blacks and whites to come
*back. together as a family,"
stated H.K.
H.K. is also Chairman of
the Board of Advisors for the
Southern Legal Resource
Center. He has marched across
country; as far away as Texas,
spreading his message of unity
and truth carrying the
Southern Flag. Along the way
he has been met by people of


all races, all faiths, and all
beliefs. H.K. stated that he is
usually met with a smile, hand
shake and encouragement; and
sometimes he is met with
curiosity, but seldom has he
experienced hate or anger.
"You would be very
surprised at how people react
to this flag," H.K. stated as he
held the flag he brought in
high.
"I have been blessed to
have had the support of many
and the love of family and
friends, old and new, to help
me in my quest to protect this
flag and the history behind it,"
H.K. added.
Part of what drives H.K. is
his deep Christian roots.
"When I saw the sign that
stated 'Welcome To Dixie',
and then the monument of the
Ten Commandments on your
courthouse steps; well I knew
that I was home," exclaimed
H.K.
Throughout our time
together, it was apparent that
both of these men were well
educated and well versed in the


subjects they brought to the
table. Behind the strong
opinions, were facts to back
those opinions. You can see
the conviction of his beliefs in
his eyes and in his voice.
When H.K. speaks, it is as if
he were at the pulpit. But
behind that boisterous voice, is
a gentle, loving and caring
man.
Terry, who will quickly let
you know he is the "younger"
brother, spends much of his
time going to schools. "My job
is to teach the children," stated
Terry.
Terry stated that when he
was growing up he always
wondered why there was so
little history about the blacks
other than slavery. He stated,
"They couldn't all pick
cotton."
With a thirst to learn more,
Terry found that our history
books that are used in schools
today, are far from the whole
story.
H.K added, "It was in the
South that we
(blacks)...acquired many of our


skills. Sure there was a lot of
bad, but there was a lot of
goodness and caring involved
during those early days."
"During the time of
slavery, blacks and whites
worked together, side-by-side.
They were a family," H.K.
noted.
As our talk came to a close,
I looked forward to hearing
