blaze.
S According to Division Chief of Fire Services Darian Brown,
the 911 call was made at approximately 1:00 a.m. When fire
'fighters arrived at the home.located off 55A on Lenton Street, the
.wood frame home owned by Mark Hatch was fully engulfed in
flames. Crews worked until 7 a.m., making sure that the fire did
not spread to surrounding woods and neighboring homes.
In addition to their home, the Hatch family also lost a vehicle
.and shed in the fire. Fortunately they did have insurance.
The State Fire Marshall was called to investigate the fire, as is
.protocol for fires involving dwellings. While an official report has
not been released, a preliminary investigation pointed toward an
electrical problem in one of the walls as to the cause of the fire.

Two Dixie Residents Arrested Following

The Alcohol-Related Fatality Of A Minor
Old Town The Department of Business and Professional Regulation's (DBPR) Division of
Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco (ABT) Wednesday arrested two individuals as part of the recently
created program, "Identifying Contributors to Alcohol Related Events" or "ICARE." The
investigation that led to the arrests was a result of the death of 20-year-old James Earl Cooper III, a
male resident of Old Town, Florida, who died on June 9, 2006. Mr. Cooper's death occurred when
he struck a traffic sign while riding a moped on NE 824th Street in Old Town. Autopsy results
discovered alcohol in his system.
An investigation by ABT, in cooperation with local authorities, revealed that Mr. Cooper had
obtained the alcohol at a house party at 984 824th Street in Old Town. The party was held at the
S home of Wesley Quin
b, Williams and was hosted by.
his son, Dustin Quin
i Williams. Mr. Williams'
Stepmother, Shari Kay
S f Williams, was present during
the party and was aware of the
Si underage drinking that was

"Wednesday's arrests
reinforce the department's
goal of reducing substance
abuse among Florida's youth,"
said Secretary Holly Benson.'
'The ICARE program is
L-R: Dustin Quin Williams and Shari Kay Williams critical to ensuring adults
understand their responsibility
to keep Florida's youth alcohol free."
Warrants were obtained for both individuals for violation of Section 562.11, Florida Statutes,
selling, giving or furnishing alcoholic beverages to persons under 21. Mr. Williams was arrested at
his mother's residence in Fanning Springs. Shari Kay Williams had previously been incarcerated on
other charges. The State Attorney's Office will also file additional charges on both subjects for
violation of the HouseParty Statute.
A primary goal of the ICARE program is to reduce substance abuse in Florida's underage
population. Through Memorandums of Understanding, the ICARE program partners ABT agents
with state and local law enforcement as they investigate alcohol-related incidents. When any type of
alcohol-related accident results in the fatality of a minor, ABT agents track the source of the illegally
sold or provided alcohol involved. Once the source is identified, ABT will then take appropriate
criminal and administrative action against the individual and/or the beverage license.
The mission of the division of ABT is to keep alcohol and tobacco out of the hands of underage
persons, to ensure that licensed establishments are in compliance with the laws and rules regulating
the industry in Florida and to collect taxes and fees related to these industries. In keeping with that
mission, the division conducts underage drinking enforcement and training efforts across the state
year-round in an effort to combat this harmful activity.
Anyone who suspects suspicious or illegal activity at any alcohol or tobacco retailer is
encouraged to report it toll-free at 1.866.540.SUDS (7837). For more information, please visit

An act of war
On Friday, March 23, an Iranian gunship captured 15 British
naval personnel in Iraqi waters. The British seamen and marines
were patrolling the area in search of vessels carrying rein-
forcements for terrorist groups operating in Iraq, and apparently
Iran's government doesn't like anybody doing this. So they violate
international law by taking hostages, then feed the world video
tapes of coerced "confessions" from their captives.
Shades of 1979. For those too young to remember, that was
when Iranian "students" overran the US embassy in Tehran and
took 66 Americans hostage, obviously with the full approval of
Iran's revolutionary government headed up by the radical
Ayatollah Khomeini. A few of our personnel were released, but
most spent 444 days in captivity. One of their captors has been
identified as Iran's current president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Iran figured they knew what US President Jimmy Carter
would-and would not-do, and they were essentially right. A
failed rescue attempt resulted in the deaths of 8 US Marines, but
did nothing to change the hostage situation. It was only after
Ronald Reagan took office that the hostages were released.
It is apparent that the Iranians are gambling that Tony Blair
will turn out to be of the Carter persuasion n the basis of his
waning support in the British media and (therefore) in the House of
Commons. Hopefully, that will turn out to be a serious miscalcula-
tion on -Iran's part.
Congressional liberals,. of which we acquired a plethora last
November, along with their lackeys in our major media, are citing
the constitutional provision giving Congress the authority to
declare war. Fine. But when an act of war is committed against
you, must you wait for a vote from a legislative body before you
retaliate?
In December of 1941, it took exactly one day after the Pearl
Harbor attack for Congress to declare war against Japan, and
.likewise against Germany, because it was a known fact that
Germany and Japan were in league. At that time, this was not a
significant delay. Today, even 24 hours could be disastrous, for
'which reason there will probably never be another declared war.
If we are to avoid the massive destruction of a Third World
-War, it behooves the British to assert themselves against a militant
Iran and for us to stand with the British in this undertaking. If the
free world's leading nations are not willing to punish an act of war
committed against us by a Middle Eastern urohymenopteron, then
we're in a heap of trouble.
At this point, a lot could be accomplished without firing a shot.
A naval blockade of the Persian Gulf would be a good place to
start. Iran has plenty of oil wells, but only one refinery, which is
insufficient to meet their domestic requirements; and even that
facility is vulnerable to an air strike, and they know it. Don't let
ships with Iranian oil out, don't let refined petrol in, and right
,away they've got a major shortage of a vital commodity and an
economic problem that could even lead to regime change, and
, Ahmadinejad knows that, too.
S Wouldn't this hit Americans in the pocket at the (gas) pump?
Sure it would, but look what's happening right now. The price of
petrol is rapidly heading toward three bucks a gallon, just like it
did about this time last year. If that situation is ever going to go
Saway, the western world has got to quit looking for ways to appease
pur adversaries and dust off Teddy Roosevelt's big stick.

Easter At The Chapel
The Easter weekend, in particular, is a time we can look back
to see all that God has done for us. At McCall's Chapel we start
that glance back with a Good Friday Tenebrae Service held at noon
on Friday, April 6. This is a moving service that reminds us of the
steps that lead Christ to the Cross.
Easter morning starts with another momentary look back as we
celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. And then we look forward
to all he has planned for us. The Sunrise service is held at 7:00
a.m.
Traditionally there is no Sunday School on Easter Morning, but
the regular morning service starts at 11:00 a.m., with dinner on the
grounds, and an egg hunt to follow.
Pastor Fred Taylor and the whole congregation invites
everyone to come share this special day with us. McCall's Chapel
is a United Methodist Church located at 7755 South SR 349
Branford. That is one mile north of the Dixie County line, or call
Pastor Taylor at 386-935-0595 for directions or more information.

The Word Made Flesh
Mark, Number, & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week.
The last Book of the Bible called
the Revelation is "The Unveiling
of Jesus Christ." Here in this book
as nowhere else, is our adorable
Saviour and Lord manifested in all
His glory. "...The glory as of the
only begotten of the Father...full
of grace and truth." (St. John 1:14)
To know Him fully, it is necessary
for us to study this book. The
-theme of the book called
Revelation comes to be the
gradual triumph of the Kingdom
.of God. And as this triumph
comes to completeness in the
second coming of Christ, it is the
-return of the Lord in Glory to
w-hich all the movement of the
Book advances. It may thus be
.conceived as the bridge cast over
:the chasm which divides the first
-and second advents. As the book
S-f Genesis gives the creation story
'and at the beginning of the Bible,
She first promise of the world's
;Saviour, so Revelation at the close
:)f the Bible announces the end of
,the present order and sets forth the
Glory and majesty of Christ in His
Second coming. He first came in
humiliation, the second time He
:will come in EXALTATION. The
revelation of Jesus Christ unlike
'tIhe prophecy of Daniel is not
.sealed. The Old Testament seen
.was commanded to shut up the
:.ords and seal his book till the
-ime of the end. But the writer of
lh1e Revelation was told to seal not
Sfie sayings of the prophecy of this
tibok: for the time is at hand.
(Compare Daniel 12:4 with
SRevelation 22:10) In these days of
spiritual famine, minds are
hungering for TRUTHS, just as
our bodies would hunger for
Natural food in the days of natural
Food famine. The figure THREE
and the figure SIX play a major
part in understanding the Book of
Revelation along with FOUR and
SEVEN. At last, the angel of Jesus
Christ is visiting the people of
God to make known the mysteries
of the scriptures. Commit thy way
Sunto the Lord; trust also in Him;
and He shall bring it to pass.
(Psalm 37:5) "THE TRUTH
SSHALL MAKE YOU FREE." St.
SJohn 8:32. Please stay up with me
Each week.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
SHeaven & Hell
As in the Lord's sight the entire heaven is as one man so
heaven is divided into as many general societies as there are
organs, viscera, and members in a man and each general society
is divided into as many less general or particular societies as
there are larger divisions in each of the viscera and organs. From
this it is evident what Heaven is. And since the Lord is the very
Man and Heaven is His image, to be in Heaven is called being in
theLord. If is from this that every one after death comes into the
society of his own, that is, of those who are in a like love, and


that he recognizes these as relatives and as friends; and what is
wonderful, when he meets them and see them it is as if he had
been acquainted with them from infancy. Heaven is granted only
to those who know the way to it and walk in that way. And that
way can to some extent be known by knowing the character of
.those who constitute Heaven, also by knowing that no one
becomes an angel that is, comes into Heaven, unless he carries
with him from the world what is angelic; and in what is angelic
there is present a knowledge of the way from walking in it, and
talking in the way through a knowledge of it. Moreover in the
spiritual world, there are actually ways that lead to every society
of Heaven and to every society of Hell; and there each one as if
from himself sees his way. He sees it because there is a way
there for every love; and the love opens the way and leads one to
his fellows. Other ways than the way of his love no one sees.
From this it is clear that angels are nothing but heavenly loves
for otherwise they would not have seen the ways leading to
Heaven. Love you, continued next week...

unusually wonderful day at Faith. Our crowd was large, our choir
was exceptionally good, Bro. Jackie's messages were good also

Physician and He has seen fit to heal many of our members.
We are looking forward to a wonderful day in the Lord next

fellowship hall after which there will be an Easter Egg hunt for the
children. The plastic eggs will be filled with candy, tiny toys and

FWC: Be

Careful Of

Alligators This

Time Of Year


Spring is when Florida's
alligators start getting active
and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is urging
Floridians and visitors to be
cautious when having fun in
and around water.
Alligators abound in all 67
counties and have shared
marshes, swamps, rivers and
lakes with people for
centuries. But because more
individuals are seeking
waterfront property and water-
related activities increase
during the warm months,
people should be alert when
they are in areas where
alligators could be present.
Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water. State law
prohibits contact with
alligators, and it is against the
law to feed them.
There are other
precautionary measures people
should take to reduce potential
conflicts with alligators, and
they are available in the
"Living with Alligators"
brochure at
http://MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually
receives more than 18,000
alligator-related complaints.
The agency removes more than
7,000 alligators each year
when the reptiles present
danger to people or property.
If you encounter an
alligator that poses a threat to
you, your pets or your
property, and the alligator is
more than 4 feet long, call the
FWC's toll-free Nuisance
Alligator Hotline at 1-866-
FWC-GATOR (392-4286).
The telephone number is the
primary contact for all alligator
complaints and is available to
customers 24 hours a day.
Alligators are an important
part of Florida's heritage and
play a valuable role in the
ecosystems where they live.
Visit MyFWC.com/gators for
more information on alligator
behavior

[ How Can The Social Security Disability SpedallstAt Integrated Famiy Services Help You?

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

league.
From the time he started playing football in the Dixie County Pop Warner Football league,
A. J. Land had dreams like all young boys do -of one day playing football, basketball or baseball
at a higher level after high school graduation. Those dreams became a reality a few weeks ago
when he signed the paperwork stating that he would play football at Jacksonville University in
Jacksonville, Florida.
After playing Pop Warner Football he moved up to the next level and played football at Ruth
Rains Middle School where he played quarterback and defensive end. He had to sit out part of
that year due a torn ACL that had to be repaired with surgery.
As a three year starter for the Bears A.J. played safety and was moved to Linebacker during
his Senior year.
Land was named to All-Area and All State teams and was selected to receive the MVP Award
at this year's Football Banquet.
Coach Wilkerson had high praises for Land, he was one of the most unselfish players that
I've had the pleasure to coach when I moved him to different positions he would say put me
where you need me to help us win. He was truly a team player."
Land has been awarded a full-ride scholarship. He will be playing for former Gator stand-out
quarterback Kerwin Bell. Land received inquires and offers from other schools, but decided he
would rather play a little closer to home. Jacksonville is only a couple of hours from here and will
be an easy drive for family and friends to drive over and watch A.J. as he plays for the
Jacksonville Dolphins. He plans to study Business while attending Jacksonville University.
A.J. is the son of Al and Connie Land and the grandson of Alton and Vonice Land and Eddie
and Mary Ellen Cassidy.
Congratulations and Good Luck A.J.!


bronze

forever


OK Hollywood, here's '._ I:: '..
your chance for ''
Hoosiers II. You can
call this film "The
Gator Boys." The
whole feel-good story
line is in the same
spirit of that little high school team from Milan, Ind. which stole
the 1954 state title and wound up stealing the hearts of American
moviegoers.

Florida's basketball team wasn't so much about being underdogs
this year. "The Gator Boys" is the parable of six unselfish college
athletes who turned down millions of dollars to stay and play for
the honor and glory of their team and their school by winning
back-to-back national championships. A true parable of
selflessness.

We should never forget the names of those six young men who
took a stand for everything pure in the otherwise money-grubbing,.
fame-grabbing world of sports. At least three of them could have
been millionaires at the end of last season. Instead, they wisely
chose the treasure that will last an eternity.

The likenesses of Corey Brewer, Taurean Green, Al Horford, Lee
Humphrey, Joakim Noah and Chris Richard and they are listed
alphabetically, because that's how they would prefer it should be
cast in bronze and hung in the O'Connell Center forever. And,
yes, I mean six because if ever a sixth man could be considered
a starter, Richard would be it.


On a technicality, just five of the 2006-2007 team will be
remembered in perpetuity as the only starters in college basketball
to win consecutive championships. We all know better. Even that
accomplishment, remarkable though it might be, is not the true
legacy of"The Gator Boys."

Their legacy isn't just about becoming the seventh team in history
to win back-to-back titles the first time since Duke did it in
1991-92 or even their part in helping Florida become the only
school in history to claim football and. basketball national
championships in same school year.

As long as coaches preach the gospel of team, team, team, these
six players aid this group will held in awe and esteem not just for
what they accomplished, but for what they were willing to
sacrifice.

A lot of coaches-and players talk the talk. "The Gator Boys" lived
it. They lived it in their generosity, a willingness to share the ,
basketball and let somebody else have the glory. It may never
happen again that all five starters will score more than 1,000
points in a season, all averaging double figures, but none higher
than 13.3. That happened by design.

Vicariously, sports fans got to experience the joy of these "Gator
Boys" when they finally realized Monday night they had beaten
Ohio State, 84-75, and were living their dream. Even if you were
sick and tired of hearing and reading about the University of
Florida's athletic success, you had to applaud the motivation of
players who wanted to send a message to us about the real core
values of sports. We heard it loud and clear.

It is true that all six of them may wind up handsomely rich
playing basketball and that coach Billy Donovan might even
depart for Kentucky after 11 years in Gainesville. I don't care. As
Donovan told them all season long, it's not about living in the past
or the future, "it's about the moment."

In my four decades of a joumalist, I've never run across a moment
like this,

Sturgeon Returning To

Suwannee River
The Gulf sturgeon are returning to the Suwannee River, and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
reminds boaters to slow down and be aware these fish are jumping.
Eight people were injured by direct sturgeon collisions during
2006. Two other boaters suffered injuries when they swerved to
avoid a jumping sturgeon and hit a bridge support in the river.
"We certainly don't want a
Sr' repeat of last year," said Maj.
Bruce Hamlin, regional
S commander for FWC's North
Central Region, based in Lake
S.- City. Just one person getting
hurt is too many. We want
people to be aware that sturgeon
are returning, and the risk of
injury to boaters does exist.
SFWC officers who patrol the
Suwannee River regularly have
-' reported the big fish are jumping
Snow. As the weather warms up
'' and more people get out on the
9 'river, the risk of injury from
colliding with the sturgeon
increases.
FWC Officers posted warning Last year, FWC officials
signs along the Suwannee began working on a public
River last year, warning awareness campaign to alert
boaters about sturgeon boaters to the risks of jumping
jumping in the river,sturgeon.
"We posted signs along the
Suwannee at each boat ramp, explaining the risk of impacts with
these fish," Hamlin said. "We recommend boaters reduce their
speed to reduce the risk of impact and to give people more time to
react if they do encounter a jumping sturgeon. We will be checking
each boat ramp on the Suwannee this month to ensure all the signs
are still in place."
In the Suwannee River, which appears to support the most
viable population of Gulf sturgeon, biologists estimate the annual
population at between 2,250 and 3,000 fish, averaging about 40
pounds. Adult fish spend eight to nine months each year in the
river spawning and three to four of the coolest months; in Gulf
waters. Adult sturgeon frequent areas near the mouths of springs
during the summer months. They tend to congregate in deeper
waters with moderate currents and sand and rocky bottoms.
Biologists are unsure why sturgeon jump.
According to Jerry Krummrich, regional freshwater fish
biologist, "I have seen these collisions referred to as 'attacks.'
However, these fish are in no way 'attacking' when they.jump.
They are simply doing what they have been doing for millions of
years...jumping. They aren't targeting the boaters."
Gulf sturgeon can grow to 8 feet in length and weigh up to 200
pounds. Sturgeon are a protected species and may not be harvested.
To report sturgeon collisions, call 1-888-404-FWCC (3922).

Don't Buy
Mallard Ducks
For Easter

With Easter approaching,
many parents contemplate
purchasing mallard ducklings as
gifts for their children. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
suggest buying your child the
stuffed-animal version instead.
"Although these ducklings
might make nice pets while
they're young, they can live 10
years and quickly outgrow the
cute-and-fuzzy stage, leaving full-
size droppings on your patio and
outdoor furniture," said FWC
waterfowl management
coordinator Diane Eggeman.
"When this happens, parents and
children often grow tired of caring
for them and decide to turn them
loose into the wild."
What they may not realize is
this is illegal and puts Florida's
native wildlife in jeopardy. By
law, no one may possess, buy or
sell mallards in Florida without
special permit from the FWC, and
releasing them is prohibited.
These activities are against the
law because domesticated ducks,
once released, are capable of
transmitting diseases, and they
compete with native wildlife for
food and habitat. The most
important reason is that releasing
mallards threatens the existence of
the Florida mottled duck, a unique
subspecies found only in
peninsular Florida.
"These domesticated mallards
are interbreeding with the mottled
duck, producing hybrid offspring,"
Eggeman said. "This is a serious
concern and if not stopped, this
hybridization could result in the
Florida mottled duck becoming
extinct."
Pet mallards will not migrate
when they are released. They
become established, year-round
residents of our state. When they
mate with wild mottled ducks, it
pushes Florida's mottled ducks
closer toward extinction.
The Florida mottled duck
population is relatively small and
already FWC biologists are saying
as many as 12 percent of these
ducks are showing genetic
evidence of hybridization.
Today, the future of our
mottled duck is uncertain, but its
fate is in Floridians' hands. The
solution starts with not buying
your child a live duckling for
Easter.
For more information on
protecting Florida's mottled
ducks, contact one of the FWC's
waterfowl offices at (850) 488-
5878 or (321) 726-2862, or click

Children's book author Timothy Weeks shows students a cast net.
Mexico and into the epicenter of a terrible hurricane (Katrina),
where he heroically rescues Goldie. After a suspenseful escape
from flooded New Orleans the two friends return safely to Cook
Bayou, where Goldie concludes that "nothing is more wondrous
than an ever loyal friend."
Weeks, joined by his mother and illustrator of the books Jeanne
Weeks, also talked to students about his childhood growing up in a
family of commercial fishermen and signed copies of his books.
The students enjoyed the Weeks visit immensely!

Left to right: Crystal Toler, Lydia Manos, and Deonna Knight.
March's Rotary student guests included Lydia Manos, Deonna
Knight, and Crystal Toler.
Manos, the daughter of Janet Manos, gave a fantastic speech oh
Greece, where she will be traveling to this summer. In her speech,
Manos described her reasons for wanting to travel to Greece and
the different places she will be visiting including Athens, Corinth,
Delphi, Kusadasi, Mykonos, Rhodes and Santorini. Monos said she

is very excited about the trip and feels that the trip will educate her
vastly.
Manos' favorite subject in school is math because "the answers
are always exact, unlike English or history, which incorporate.
opinion."
After graduation, Manos plans to attend the University of
South Florida.
Manos plays flute and soccer. She is also a member of the Hi-Q:
academic team, Spanish Club and National Honor Society.
Knight, the daughter of Debbie and Dwight Knight, gave a:
great speech on her favorite hobby, Historical Fencing. Fencing is
simply, as Knight described, a fast-paced game of tag where "we:
dress up in a specialized jacket and face mask and then try to poke
each other." Historical Fencing is different from Olympic Fencing
because the opponents move and act more like medieval fighters in
battle. Knight said fencing is a.great way to stay active and express
her love for history.
Knight's favorite subject in school is history because "I like
learning about hour our world has developed."
Knight is a member of National Honor Society, Beta Club, Hi-
Q, Spanish Club and Film Club.
After graduation, Knight plans to attend college in Florida and
major in either computer graphics or language.
Toler, the daughter of Diane Gamer, also gave a wonderful
speech on Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), one of th6'
largest student organizations and an organization that she is a'
member of. According to Toler, FBLA has given her thp
opportunity to compete in state-wide competitions and has helped
prepare her for her future.
Toler's favorite subject is English because "I am best in it."
After graduation, Toler plans to go to college and major in
business management.
Toler enjoys reading and listening to music. She is a member of
Spanish Club, FBLA, Beta Club, and National Honor Society.

:Log Cabin

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters inet
.Thursday, March 29th at the
'Levy County Quilt Museum.
SAnother quilt was put together
a nine patch, very old, it will
be quilted at home. The
SWatermelon Quilt will be hung
for all to see and we look
forward to the Festival. We
have given away a quilt each
year for a long time and still
enjoy being there each year.
Memories go back when we
would have a float in the
parade, pulled by the late Bob
Bartusek on his tractor. We
would serve chicken and
dumplings there, that's when
we was raising money to build
the museum. We would serve
them for breakfast and still
meet people who enjoyed


them.
Goldie has finished a
Dutch Girl Quilt for a great
grandchild. Alice Mae has
finished her Heart Quilt. B.J.
has finished a small quilt for
one of her grandchildren. Pat
finished the Dresden Plate;
there is lots of quilting going
on.
Greg and six boys was out
Tuesday and they are working
on the flower beds and rocks
that go around them. They are
also watching to see the seeds
they have .planted come up.
They really keep the museum
at top shape. Thanks
Lancaster.
We will have the Church
Fellowship Dinner coming up
the first of May. More about
that later.


All classes, except clinical training, are held
in Chiefland at the CFCC Levy Center. The next
CNA class will be a daytime class beginning
May 14th. Because the class size is limited,
early registration is encouraged. Any student
who would like to enroll in the May class should
do so soon. A high school diploma or GED is
not required. Please call CFCC at 493-9533 for
enquiries.
In addition to the Certified Nursing Assistant
course, the CFCC Levy County Center in
Chiefland offers a wide variety of other courses.
The range of courses include: college credit,
adult education (GED), continuing education
(non-credit), and adult high school. Call the
Levy County Center at 493-9533 or just drop by
for more information. The CFCC Levy County

4-Pets Sake

News
This is the last reminder of
the antique and collectible sale
Saturday, April 7. It will be at
Trenton Community Center
and the sale starts at 9:30am
and goes until? There will also
be some general merchandise
that includes nice furniture. If
you're looking for variety, stop
in to look, buy, donate, or talk.
We will be there rain or shine.
We would like to thank
Mary Woodhouse for all her
time and effort that she has
given to 4 Pets Sake. Please
accept our apologies for not
including your name on our
thank you list.
Presently we cannot foster
any more pets because our own
pets need special care and
attention due to their various
conditions of blindness, age,
and excessive abuse in their
past. Many have known
Sammy and Sugar Bear, both
toy poodles. We acquired them
a few years ago when their pet
parent passed away. Rather
than have them destroyed we
were asked to help. Friday we
lost Sammy; he was 18 years
old. We advertised for two
years o adopt them both out
but because of their age we.
knew this was their forever
home. Sammy had to have his
teeth pulled so he was on a soft
diet; and Sugar Bear is blind.
Sammy was Sugar Bears eyes.
Pets do indeed grieve. Sugar
Bear roams around endlessly
until we pick him up and
cuddle him. Then we put him


on the bed that he and Sammy
shared and he falls off to sleep.
The summer is our
planning period so most of our
major fund raisers, with the
exception the Bell Elementary
School Dog Gone Dog


Biscuits and a few yard sales,
will come to an end.
Have a joyous .and safe
Easter. Until next time be
happy just for the love of them.

State Road 26 Resurfacing
Between Trenton & Newberry
Thirteen miles of State Road 26 (Newberry Road) between
U.S. 129 in Trenton and U.S. 41 in Newberry, resurfacing started
Monday, April 2, according to the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) Public Information Office.
Crews began removing the existing pavement and placing new
asphalt starting with the eastbound lanes near U.S. 129 in Trenton
and heading east toward Newberry. After the eastbound lanes are
done, then work will begin on the westbound lanes. Work in the
downtown Newberry area will take place at the end of the contract
time. Lane closures will be allowed between 8:30 a.m. and 10 p.m.
and are currently scheduled Monday through Saturday. No work

4:00 p.m. for our pet adoptions.
Leaving your dog in a hot car can kill him.
On a hot summer day, the inside of a car heats up very quickly.
On an average 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside
your car--with the window -, -:, .
slightly opened--will reach 102

will go up to 120 degrees. On
warmer days, it will go even

A dog's normal body
temperature is 101.5 to 102.2
degrees. A dog can withstand a
body temperature of 107 to 108
degrees for only a very short .

If your dog is overcome by
heat exhaustion, you can give immediate first aid by immersing
him or her in cold water until the body temperature is lowered.
Please either leave your pet at home, or have one person sit in
the car with the pet while the others shop. A simple rule of thumb
is: If you can't sit in your car with the windows cracked for 5, 10
or 15 minutes because you're too hot, then so is your dog, who's
wearing a fur coat. And remember a day can be breezy and feel
cool, but the sun is still very hot and can heat up a car in a matter

In this view of the oak gnome of Old Town Hammock two common forest vines are clearly
distinguishable. On the left: Poison Ivy to which about six out of 10 persons are highly allergic.
Poison Ivy causes blisters and a painful rash. Smoke from Poison Ivy leaves burning in a leaf litter
bonfire can be very dangerous.
And on the right we see Virginia Creeper, a common vine in Florida forests. This vine is not only
harmless but it is sometimes sold in nurseries as an ornamental.
It is important to distinguish between these two common plants. With Poison Ivy it's "Leaves of
three, let it be." And with Virginia Creeper it's "Leaves of five; let it thrive."
