One Killed, Another Seriously Trenton Man Killed In'


Injured In Auto Accident
An accident last Thursday resulted in the death of one young
man and left another in critical condition.
SAccording to the Florida Highway Patrol report, the one-
vehicle accident occurred at approximately 5:50 a.m. on North
East 154th Avenue (Swafford Road). The vehicle, a 2001 Dodge,
driven by Shaun P. Williams, 22, Old Town, was traveling east on
the road when Williams failed to negotiate a curve and the
vehicle's right tires went onto the south shoulder. Williams over-
z'rrected, causing the vehicle to rotate counter clockwise across
"oth lanes of the road. The vehicle then traveled onto the north
Shoulder and collided into the side of a parked flat bed trailer.
Upon impact, the vehicle began to spin again before coming to a
final rest. The passenger, Nathan A. Farmer, 15, Old Town, was
pronounced deceased at the scene.
Williams was transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville
where as of Tuesday he remained in critical condition. Charges in
the fatal crash are pending the results of a blood alcohol test.


Single-Vehicle Accident
William S. Lovelace, III, 37, of Trenton, was killed Saturday in
a single-vehicle accident that occurred in Trenton on CR 307.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, Lovelace was
driving southbound on CR 307 around 9:45 p.m. when, for
unknown reasons, the vehicle he was driving, a 1999 GMC
Suburban, traveled across the northbound lane and off the roadway
onto the east shoulder. The Suburban then traveled back onto the
roadway traveling southbound in the northbound lane. Lovelace
steered the Suburban to the left causing the Suburban to rotate in a
counterclockwise manner. The Suburban then rotated
counterclockwise approximately /2 time before traveling off the
roadway and back onto the east shoulder of CR 307. At that time,
the Suburban became airborne and traveled through a ditch before
striking a large tree.
A visitation was held Wednesday, April 11, 2007 at Watson
Funeral Home, and funeral services will be held Thursday, April
12, 2007 at Ebenezer Baptist Church.


Crosstyz Returns To Red Belly Stage
nt I 11 T7-% l 1 1 1 1 1 r Z, n .l T%


-;Local favorites Crosstyz
ir\ill be returning to the stage
"for the 12th annual Red Belly
"Day festival. This will be only
tile band's second RBD
'performance since the 2002
show with Joe Diffie.
Headlining this year's
Memorial Day weekend show
will be Confederate Railroad, a
band whose sound has been
'said to be a cross between
Alabama and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Crosstyz was extremely
busy during the latter 1990's'
opening for most of the biggest
names in Nashville at huge'
events and shows like the
Silver Springs Concert Series,
Plant City's annual Strawberry
Festival, and Wild Adventures.
The tragic passing of
founding guitarist Sam
Matthews a few years back


Crosstyz
nearly brought the end of the
group. But after some time off
for healing, the group realized
how much they truly missed
playing. A reformed band,
with Hardee Myer filling in for
the late Sam, appeared at the
10th annual Red Belly show.
Original bassist and harmony
vocalist Rick Carnley, Bell
resident, had left the band
some time last year but was
greatly missed and was
persuaded to rejoin by the
other members. Robert
O'Steen of High Springs still
handles lead vocals, but is now
pulling double duty by playing
lead guitar as well. Although
Robert and Rick are the only
original band members,
drummer Toby Witt from Lake
City has been with the group
since 1999. Rounding out the


band's core lineup is Matt
Federico, also hailing from
Lake City, playing rhythm
guitar ahd adding harmony
vocals.
The band's lineup is
frequently augmented with
great backup musicians such
as Bobby Dodd from
Steinhatchee on pedal steel
guitar and/or local fiddle
legend Tommy Slaughter.
Regardless of the
additional personnel, this band
is guaranteed to put on a great
show for anyone that likes
high-powered traditional
Country and Western music.
Crosstyz will be performing on
the Rachel Stage and are
expected to go on about 11:30
a.m..
See You At

Three

Injured In

Boating

Accident
Three people were injured
last Wednesday in a boating
accident in Steinhatchee.
According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission
officials, the single boat
accident occurred around 9
a.m. when the operator of the
boat, George Moorman, looked
down at his GPS and after
looking back up, suddenly saw
that he was running too close
to a channel marker. Moorman
attempted to swerve and miss
the marker but the left side of
the boat hit the marker.
None of the passengers,
who were all from Jackson,
GA, were seriously injured,
however, Moorman and
another passenger, Sean Fleck,
were transported to Shands
Hospital, Gainesville, as a
precautionary measure.' A
juvenile passenger was treated
at the scene for his injuries.


Cou


Hospital


By Briar Keathley
Ameris Health Systems and the state's Agency for Health Care
Administration (AHCA) reached a settlement last Tuesday that,
after years of futile attempts, will allow a 60-bed hospital to be
built in Chiefland.
"Under state statute, AHCA has 30 days to issue the Certificate
of Need," said Ameris Health Systems health Consultant Frank
Schupp. "Once it is issued, construction must start within 18
months."
In the state of Florida, a Certificate of Need (CON) must be
issued by AHCA before a hospital can be built.
Ameris, a Nashville-based company that already owns several
rural hospitals, applied for a CON in 2004 and was denied
approval. Two years later, Ameris applied for a CON, but, once
again, was also denied. There were several reasons behind
AHCA's decision to deny the CON, but Ameris decided to appeal
AHCA's decision, and in January 2007, the case went to the
Florida Division of Administrative Hearings.
A few weeks ago, North Florida Regional Medical Center filed
a petition for leave to intervene, stating "North Florida would be
substantially and adversely affected by any AHCA decision to
approve the Ameris CON application." NFRMC decided to
withdraw the intervention last week.
Having finally won the "battle," Ameris is looking forward to
building the Tri-County Hospital that will serve citizens of the tri-
county area, according to Schupp.
The state of the art facility, which will be built on a 20-acre
parcel located behind Wal-Mart, will offer the following services:
a 24-hour emergency room, obstetrics, pediatrics, orthopedics,
general surgery, medical care, inpatient pharmacy, physical
therapy, non-invasive cardiac, and radiology.
Patients needing trauma care or severe cardiac care will still
have to travel to Shands Hospital or NFRMC, but general care
needs will be met at the Tri-County Hospital.
"All of the non-life threatening needs can be handled at the
new hospital, and people can be at home resting long before the
time it would have taken in Gainesville," said Dixie County
Commissioner Buddy Lamb referring to the long wait times and
travel distance patients incur while going to either Shands or
NFRMC.
Another benefit of the new hospital, Lamb said, will be to the
Emergency Services.
"It's really going to take pressure off our ambulances, giving
them the opportunity to be more readily available to citizens and
not on the road traveling to and from Gainesville," he said.
Also, being able to transport patients to the new hospital and
not to Gainesville will cut down the time it takes for those patients
to receive critical care treatment, according to Dixie County
Emergency Services Director Tim Alexander.
Time is not the only thing wasted when ambulances are
constantly traveling to and from Gainesville, but also fuel,
Alexander said. On average, the county's ambulances travel about
20,000 miles and use 2,500 gallons of fuel each month. Being able
to transport patients to Chiefland rather than Gainesville will
greatly reduce fuel usage and mileage, he said.
Alexander explained that even though the new hospital will be
closer and more convenient, Dixie County Emergency Services
will continue to take patients to the most appropriate facility.
"I'm excited that the new hospital is coming," Alexander said.
"We're so far away from everything and we need a closer
hospital."
Local educators are excited about the new hospital as well.
"For students in the Tri-County area, the employment
opportunities will be much more local," said Dr. Abraham Pallas,
Lake City Community College executive director of the Academy
of Allied Health Programs. "We're anticipating more students
applying from the Tri-County area now."
Students enrolled in allied health courses, such as nursing,
paramedics and physical therapy will be able to do their clinical
rotations at the Tri-County Hospital, Pallas said, providing them
with local learning opportunities.
"(The hospital) is really going to be a good employment
opportunity for the citizens of Dixie County, Commissioner Lamb
said. "Really, it's going to be an accumulation of good things."
Although Lamb, who has been a huge proponent for better and
more convenient health care for Dixie County citizens, would have
liked for a hospital to be built in Dixie County, he said it was not a
possibility with all of the criteria that AHCArequires.
"So, in the best interest of the citizens, 22 miles is a lot better
than 50," he said.

Fifth Person Arrested In

February School Break-In
According to Dixie County
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office has made
another arrest into the burglary at
the Dixie County High School with
the apprehension of Craig Patrick
Braswell, 17, Cross City. The
investigation has been ongoing
since the burglary occurred on Feb.
13 and 14, 2007, when Braswell,
along with four other accomplices
entered the campus of DCHS.
The individuals made forcible
entry into 10 different buildings Craig Patrick Braswell
including the High School, Superintendent's Office and the
Vocational School. Numerous items were stolen from the buildings
including computer equipment, radios, coins, tools and a fire
extinguisher. The School District has placed a value of $16,805 on
the items stolen. To date, over $10,000 worth of the items has been
recovered.
Braswell was arrested and booked into the Dixie County Jail on
the charges of 10 Counts of Burglary, Two Counts of Grand Theft
and One Count of Felony Criminal Mischief. He has since been
transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice Assessment
Center in Gainesville, Fla.

Letter To The Editor
It is with great sadness that I must inform you that a fellow
graduate and friend, Woody Lovelace, was in a fatal car accident.
He is survived by his wife Kerri and five beautiful children Will,
Collin, Wyatt, Nathan and daughter Rachel.
I had the pleasure of speaking with him just a short time ago.
He had great ideas for our upcoming 20th year reunion and was
excited about getting everyone together. He spoke in great
admiration of his wife and how much he loved being a dad. He
talked about his travels from the military, adventures with friends
and trips with his family. He sounded truly happy. I'm sure
everyone has a memory of him that will put a smile on your face,
maybe even laugh out loud. He loved to make people laugh.
In lieu of flowers, the family has established an account for
the children. Please contribute to the "Lovelace Memorial Fund"
at Drummond Community Bank located in Chiefland, Cross City,
Cedar Key, Trenton and Old Town (352-493-2277).
Visitation will be held Wednesday April 11th, 6pm-8pm at
Watson Funeral Home in Trenton, FL (352-463-8888). The
funeral is Thursday April 12th, 11am at Ebenezer Baptist Church,
Chiefland, FL (352-493-2311).
Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. We are
all blessed to have known Woody. He is a wonderful friend that
will be deeply missed.

Nice going, Princess
Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi returned from her
triumphal diplomatic tour of the Middle East. We may now address
her as "Madame Secretary" (of State), or if you prefer, merely as
"Princess Nancy.'
I don't know if her visit to that oil-rich region had anything to
do with it, but I did notice that the gradually escalating price of
petrol at the pump took a rather conspicuous leap coincidental with
Her Majesty's visit. If that's Princess Nancy's idea of Middle
Eastern diplomacy, maybe we should have sent Jimmy Carter.
Granted, there are other factors to be considered, but when the
Speaker of the House of Representatives goes to a place like Syria
to make nice with a terrorist-enabler like Syrian President Basher
al-Assad, that sends a message to the entire region that the United
States Congress has usurped the authority of the President, which
in turn leads the Islamic militants to conclude that they no longer
have much to fear from our eroding status as a world power.
If the opposite had been true-if Princess Nancy's visit had
eased tensions in that region-it is logical that the price of oil
would start backing off; rather than going off the charts as it does
:whenever the tension in the Middle East tightens a bit.
According to Article II of the United States Constitution, the
-President has the authority to tell would-be negotiators to stay
:home, as Bush did when advised of Pelosi's proposed excursion.
Furthermore, the Logan Act of 1799 specifically prohibits what
might be termed "free lance diplomacy."
All right, Henry Kissinger did dabble a bit in the art form after
he was no longer Secretary of State, Jimmy Carter has been
involving himself more and more as his failed presidency fades
from the public's recollection (remember, it was Carter who
created the Department of Education) and Jesse Jackson has
certainly overplayed his role as ambassador without portfolio for a
man who never had one. Perhaps these and others should all have
:been called to account for their activities, including the Princess.
Especially the Princess, in fact. She's not just some former
public official who at least had diplomatic authority at one time, or
even some wannabe who got away with fabricating his own
:credentials for a season. As House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi holds one
of the most powerful political positions in the country. But at the
Same time, she has no more authority to officially represent the
United States to foreign nations-especially hostile foreign nations
--than Dick Cheney has to write legislation for George Bush to
: sign into law without bothering to run it by Congress.
And let's not forget Princess Nancy's visit with Israeli Prime
Minister Ehud Olmert. The result was her taking a report to Syria
that Israel was ready to negotiate, something Olmert denies. One
Might actually surmise that she's messed things up pretty badly,
leaving the State Department to clean up after her.
On the plus side, Princess Nancy's caper seems to have eroded
:-her credibility, even within her own party. And even the liberal
Washington Post was critical of her junket to the Middle East and
her garbled message from Israel to Syria.
S Maybe now she'll be content to stay home and concentrate on
.acquiring a government (read taxpayer) funded 747 so that she and
her entire entourage can make non-stop trips from Washington to
her home district in California. Or maybe her entourage will have
diminished somewhat, and she can make the trip in a single-engine
Cessna 195.
Come to think of it, that wouldn't work, either. She'd still have
to land and gas up in "fly-over country," where the common people
live.


Women's

History Month
ANA WARD WINNER


LAKE CITY, Fla. -
Women's History Month was

To finalize this special time
the Women's Organization of
the Year was honored at a
special "Tea" held in the
beautifully decorated Barney
E. McRae Jr M.D. Medical
Technology Building.
Members of the LCCC chapter

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007


"TEACHERS"
Continued from pg. 1A
Phyllis Jeanine Collins,
Old Town Elementary
School
Michelle Anne West,
Anderson Elementary School
Caresse Pridgeon, Ruth
Rains Middle School
Judy Sumrall, Dixie
County High School
Of these four teachers,
Michelle West, was also
named 2008 District Teacher
of the Year.
Coming from St.
Petersburg, West began
teaching at AES last year as a
fifth-grade teacher, but "her
heart was in third grade,"
according to AES Principal
Denee Hurst.
Currently teaching third
grade, West is laying the
ground work on a Teacher
Inquiry project for the next
school year based on the
concept of "looping." She will
be comparing her students'
growth of being with a teacher
over a two-year period to those
students who have a new
teacher each school year.
In addition to teaching
third grade, West is also the
yearbook sponsor, tutors
students, and is a SAC
member.
This summer, West will
begin attaining her master's
degree in special education.
She is also planning to become
Reading endorsed by next
school year.
SUpon receiving the District
Teacher of the Year award,
West said that when she first
came to Dixie County, she was
frightened, but everyone was
so kind and welcoming.
"It's been truly humbling,"
West said.
- Phyllis Jeanine Collins,
OTES Teacher of the Year,
was described by Principal
Sonny Wadsworth as well-
liked by both students and
parents.
"She always looks out for
the best interest of the
students," Wadsworth said of
the fifth grade science and
reading teacher.
Wadsworth said he
especially enjoys visiting


Collins' science class because
she has so many hands-on
activities, which the kids really
enjoy.
Collins has been teaching
at OTES since the 2002-2003
school year. Over the years,
she has been nominated for the
Disney Teacher olf the Year
Award, served as fifth grade
curriculum chairperson, served
on the science textbook
adoption committee and was
invited to serve as mentor or
facilitator at the People to
People Conference held in
Spokane, Washington.
Careese Pridgeon, RRMS
Teacher of the Year, serves as
the English Department Chair,
Sixth Grade Team Leader,
Drama Club Sponsor and
coordinates the spelling bee.
According to RRMS
Principal Beverly Baumer,
Pridgeon does a tremendous
job, and her students Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) scores prove it.
In the past five years, her
students FCAT reading gains
placed in the top 20, three of
those five years the gains
placed in the top five, and in
2002, the gains placed first in
the state.
Baumer said Pridgeon is
very creative in what she does,
and "the creativity really gets
the kids going."
Described as a quality
teacher by DCHS Principal
Buddy Schofield, Judy Sumrall
was named DCHS Teacher of
the Year.
Sumrall has been working
at the school for 29 years, first
as an English teacher and now
as Media Specialist. Over the
years, she has worked to
remediate students to prepare
them for the FCAT, sponsored
student clubs and activities,
and taught Computer Assisted
Student Education to help
students graduate.
This year, Sumrall
successfully completed her
challenging goal to become a
National Board Certified
Teacher.
Congratulations to Dixie
County's Teachers of the Year
and to all of our teachers for
doing a wonderful job!

"HOSPITAL"
Continued from pg. 1A
Lamb expressed his
gratitude to the many
supporters of the hospital,
including not only Senator
Nancy Argenziano, and State
Representatives Will Kendrick,
Debbie Boyd, Steve Oelrich,
Charlie Dean and Larry Cretul,
but also the citizens who
testified at the public hearing
and wrote numerous letters.
"This really is proof of
what people can attain by
pulling together," Lamb said.
It will not, however, be an
overnight venture, Lamb said,
explaining that there is still a
lot of work to be done during
the construction process.
"But, when the hospital is
completed, it will be
something that will benefit
citizens living here today, and
also future generations."

Legislative Report

Argenziano and Kendrick represent Dixie in Tallahassee
By Mike Moore


Florida's state Legislators began their
annual 60-day session, March 6, and the bills
quickly began moving along through
committees and onto the floor. Members had
already met during committee weeks prior to the
convening of the regular session. Lawmakers
are currently in week six, with three more to
follow.
Each Representative may sponsor six
bills, with Senators not limited as to how many
they may introduce. Legislators may also co-
sponsor bills.
Dixie County is represented by Will
Kendrick in the House. In the Senate, Sen.
Nancy Argenziano is the voice for Dixie.
Argenziano is being considered for a
seat on the Florida Public Service Commission
and is one of six finalists for the position. The
list went to Gov. Charlie Crist earlier this week
and he will choose the person to fill the position.
Sen. Argenziano would need to resign from her
Senate seat if selected for the PSC.
Sen. Argenziano sponsored Senate Bill
1004 which was recently passed unanimously.
The bill bolsters the ability of law enforcement
officers to keep online sexual predators away
from children. The bill requires predators or


which they will begin selling
the weekend prior.
"It should be a lot of fun,"
said Dixie Aviation Services
Manager Clint Beauchamp.
"We hope everyone comes out
and checks out the planes."

before they can use the address on the Internet.
Kendrick is on four House committees.
He is on the Committee on K-12, Policy and
Budget Council, Environmental and Natural
Resources Council, and Committee on;
Conservation and State Lands.
One bill sponsored by Rep. Kendrick is:
HB 1069, Protection of Seagrasses. It provides
that careless operation of a vessel outside of a
marked channel is a civil infraction and has
other provisions.
Kendrick is co-sponsor of 14 bills.
These deal with a wide variety of subjects,
including solar energy, suicide prevention, and
state aid to public libraries.
The local lawmakers are working with
the other Representatives and Senators to deal
with several issues of interest to Florida'
residents. Tops on the list appears to be taxes.
Property insurance is the second priority, and-
was addressed during the special session in
January. Of course, many of the insurance
questions are hurricane-related. Solutions for the
problems of transportation, education, and,
questions dealing with the environment also are'
on the Legislators' plates.
The session is scheduled to end May 4.

Where Are We?
About the time our original thirteen states adopted
their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a
Scottish history professor at the University of
Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it
simply cannot exist as a permanent form of
government."
"A democracy will continue to exist up until the
time that voters discover they can vote themselves
generous gifts from the public treasury."
"From that moment on, the majority always vote
for the:aiifdidates who promise the most benefits
fiunir the public treasury, with the result that every
democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal
policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the world's greatest
civilizations from-the beginning of history, has been
about 200 yearj,"-
"During those 200 years, those nations always
progressed through the following sequence:
1. from bondage to spiritual faith.
2. from spiritual faith to great courage.
3. from courage to liberty.
4. from liberty to abundance;
5. from abundance to complacency;
6. from complacency to apathy;
7. from apathy to dependence;
8. from dependence back into bondage."

The Word Made Flesh
Mark, Number & Name v -r,.e.
of the Beast .u-,da, E.en r
Continued from last week. As .'i-Pn aso
I take the last step of this great Pastor
mystery of the Beast, his Mark, his (3E
Number, and his Name, may we
.reach for what God has for us with
an open heart and a pure mind. We Calvary Ter
must remember that the carnal Su.vanne l
mind (fleshly) is the enemy of the -L
Lord God of our souls. I want to "J,, '-' ,
write the words of the Apostle l rie.o
Matthew for us to look at. These K,, rn
are scriptures that we should Pastors-
know. I am going to approach (3E
these scriptures with all there is in
me, to say what would please the
Lord Jesus. I am well aware if we Central
are not careful we will add to this C r C
,..t t Ir,ie,'S ,l.On rl o Ca
blessed Book or take away from it.
The main theme that we want to' ,-
look at is the NAME OF THE ..:rurr .-v.r.?,..er
BEAST. In approaching this 5u, S
subject I hope that some of you E. .erinr,,p
that I have talked to personally Pastor-
will take the scriptures as they are (3!
and understand that the mind of
Christ is the only way to overcome
this Mark, Number, and Name. Cross City
You do not understand the 5237 52 E
mysteries of the scriptures with a
carnal (fleshly) mind. Jude the
Apostle writes to us, "But these Lj.. sw
speak evil of those things which Minis
they know not: but what they Youth Mini!
know naturally, as brute beasts, in
those things they corrupt -
themselves." (Jude 1:10) The main
thing I want you do rightly is to CrOSS Cit
see and understand the day we are Krn
living in the "ANTI" part of it P.,:.r.r..,,r, Tr
from the real. We are looking at | S:u,. a, S.:r.-.O..
the words of Saint Mathew, ,: ,r l ,' I -''r.rr .
Chapter 24. Here the apostles were T.',,.-r aa, F-a,-,l, I
approaching Jesus with the three Rev Ed &
great questions they wanted to
know about: "When shall THESE (3-
THINGS be? And what shall be
the SIGN of thy coming, and of Cross City Pet
the END OF THE WORLD? Then t iy e
Jesus warned them, "Take heed n It,; hen .
that no man deceive you." (This is -:unr .,:r..:i
verse 4) Do not let anyone deceive Ir,, r--,
you. "For many shall come in my -ur, E.enny.

'here just a little on behalf of verse '' (3-

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"Heaven & Hell"
Continued from last week. Many persons at this day, who believe in a
life after death, believe too that in Heaven subjects of devotion will
engage all their thoughts, and that their lips will express nothing but
prayers, and that in devotion and prayer, expressed both in the features of
the face and the postures of the body, they will be always employed in
glorifying God; thus that their houses will be so many houses of worship,
scared chapels, and themselves so many priests of God. But I can testify
and assert that in Heaven the holy subjects and rites of the church do not
more engage in the minds and houses of the inhabitants than where in the
worlds God is truly honored and worshiped, although the honor and
worship in Heaven are of a purer and more interior nature. But that various
matters relating to civil prudence and national erudition are there
cultivated in all the perfection of excellence. I was one day raided into
Heaven, and introduced into a society consisting of the sophi, or sages
who in old time had distinguished themselves by their learned
lucubration's and meditations on subjects of reason, and which at the same
time were applicable to use, and who are at present in Heaven, because
they believed in God, and now believe in the Lord and loved their
neighbor as themselves. Then I was introduced to an assembly of them,
and there questioned whence I came; so I gave an explanation, and said,
"With my body I am in the natural world, but with my spirit in your
spiritual world. At this information those angels were rejoiced, and
immediately inquired, what do the people of the world, where you are with
,the body, know and understand on the subject of INFLUX?" Recollecting
all that I had heard or read on that subject, either in the discourses or the
writings of the most distinguished literati, I answered, "They as yet know
riothing of an influx from the spiritual world into the natural but only of an
influx of nature into natural object, as of the influx of heat and light from
the sun into animate bodies, and also into trees and shrubs, causing each to
become living; an influx of cold into the same things, causing their topor
and death. They have besides some knowledge of an influx of light into
the eyes so as to produce vision, of an influx of sound into the ears
producing the sense of hearing, and of an influx of odor into the nostrils,
whence come smelling. Love you; stay up with me, continued next
week...

New Prospect Baptist News
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow and, most especially,
for the sacrifice of His Son Jesus, Who died for our sins and was
resurrected that we might have life everlasting! With a near
capacity crowd, we had a glorious time at our Easter services
Sunday. Our choir sang beautiful songs of praise and, once again,
we were blessed with some special songs by our own group,
Southern Grace, followed by a beautiful solo by Tracey Brannin.
We commend all our singers and musicians on a job well done,
and thank God for each of you. Bro. Billy did a fine job of
bringing God's message from 1st Corinthians 15:12-19, leaving all
attendees with much food for thought. After the morning
service, we enjoyed an egg hunt for the children, plus a fine dinner
with all the trimmings in the church annex.
On Wednesday, April 18th, we will have our monthly
Fellowship Supper at the church annex. Then, on April 19th, there
will be a workshop, "Marriage God's Way," at the Lafayette
Baptist Association Office, 7:00 PM.
As always, we invite visitors to come and fellowship with us
anytime...all welcome. Please remember to keep your prayer life
active in praying for all those on the prayer lists, our military, and
our President and other leaders. Have a good week, and may God
bless you.

the roadside gave us pause to
marvel in the beauty of our
Lord's creations, and heralded
the blessings of the Holy day.
Among the large
attendance, we were honored
to have several visitors, and
look forward to seeing them
again.
Our own very talented
Lydia Quartet blessed our
hearts with their songs "The
Lamb Arose," and Elaine
Hines led the children's church
with her usual boundless
enthusiasm and her wonderful
talent for teaching the little
ones.
Pastor Wayne Allen
delivered an exciting and
inspiring message based on


Luke 24:36 reminding us that
Jesus ALWAYS keeps His
Promises, and that we are the
only religion who serve a
living savior. Pastor Wayne
warned us not to get caught up
in the frivolous things of the
world, for that causes us to
overlook our Risen Savior!
How tragic it is to allow the
trappings of the world to
engulf us, when Jesus is
always in our midst and wants
to save you! How infinitely
more satisfying to let the Holy
Spirit rub off on you, rather
than worldly nonsense!
We invite everyone in the
community to be our honored
guest at any of our services
and to join our welcoming
church family.
Don't forget our vacation
Bible School this summer we
will present a western theme.
Everyone loves Cowboys! Our
Sunday school is at 9:45 a.m.
Sunday Morning services at
11:00 a.m. Bible study evening
service at 7 p.m. Remember at
Lydia everybody is somebody
at Christ is everything.

SHow Can The Social Security Disability Spedast At Integrated Family Services Help You?

If you are denied a Social Security Disability or a SSI Claim, it is often because there was a lack of medical evidence
in support of ypur 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.

"Give Me A Break" With That

Kit Kat Blizzard
Kit Kat Blizzard makes its debut as Blizzard of the
Month for April
MINNEAPOLIS Kit Kat, one of the top five candy bar
brands in the U.S., will now be combined with one'of the world's
most popular iconic treats when Dairy Queen introduces the Kit
Kat Blizzard as the featured Blizzard of the Month for April.
"The Kit Kat candy bar has staying power -- its popularity
spanning 76 years," said Michael Keller, chief brand officer for
International Dairy Queen. "We've taken those light, crispy
wafers wrapped in chocolate that everyone knows and loves to
debut another irresistible Blizzard flavor."
Available at all Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill
locations nationwide throughout April, the Kit Kat Blizzard is a
flavorful mix of Kit Kat candy bar pieces blended with rich
chocolate and creamy DQ vanilla soft serve.
The average price of the Kit Kat Blizzard is $2.75 for the 12
oz., $3.20 for the 16 oz. and $3.65 for the 21 oz.
Many Blizzard flavors also can be made into customized
cakes, including Kit Kat, which is perfect for Easter or other
special celebrations. The average price of a Blizzard cake is
$19.99 for the eight-inch and $22.50 for the 12-inch.
Kit Kat was first created by Rowntree Limited of York,
England and is now made by Nestl6, which acquired Rowntree in
'1988. According to Wikipedia, this traditional candy bar was
developed after a worker at the Rowntree factory in York
suggested a snack that a "man could have in his lunch box for
workk" Thus the Rowntree's Chocolate Crisp was born. In 1937,
it was renamed Kit Kat Chocolate Crisp, a name believed to have
come from the Kit-Cat Club, an 18th century Whig literary club
founded during the reign of James II. After World War II,
Chocolate Crisp was dropped from the name.
Dairy Queen began blending simple combinations of cookies,
candies, fruit, nuts. and DQ soft serve 22 years ago to create the
signature Blizzard Flavor Treat. Since then, one-of-a-kind flavors
such as Turtle Pecan Cluster, Monster Cookie, Chocolate Xtreme
and Dream Pie Blizzards have become Blizzards of the Month, a
promotion that began in 2003.
The incredible popularity of the Blizzard brand led Dairy
Queen to initiate the Blizzard Fan Club last year, which has
already grown to more than a million members (log on to
www.blizzardfanclub.com).

(NAPS)-Here are some
interesting facts about water
that you may want to drink in:
The Earth is actually cov-
ered by more water tharrland.
However, nearly 97 percent of
that water is salt water, which
is not suitable for drinking.
Another 2 percent resides
in ice caps and glaciers, leav-
ing just 1 percent to accom-
modate human need-includ-
ing agricultural, manufac-
turing and residential uses,
such as drinking water, show-
ering, washing clothes and
watering the lawn.
Did you know the average
total home water usage for
each person in the U.S. is
about 50 gallons of water per
day? Did you also know that
the average cost for water sup-
plied to a home in the U.S. is
less than a penny per gallon?
When you consider that, in
the United States, water util-
ities monitor for more than
100 contaminants and must
meet close to 90 regulations
for water quality and relia-
bility, one wonders how such
a valuable resource can be so
reasonably priced.
According to the experts at
American Water, tap water is
collected, treated and dis-
tributed in accordance with
all of these regulations, meet-
ing and often exceeding
all EPA drinking water
standards.
Now compare the cost of
bottled water to tap water.
The beverage industry esti-
mated that in 2005. Americans
spent over $9 billion on bot-
tled water. At $1.50 for a 20-
ounce bottle of water, con-
sumers could get nearly 1,000
servings-150 gallons--oftap
water!

Levy County

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, April 5, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It's
amazing how many quilts are
being made today. A new club
will be starting up in Dixie
County soon and that means
more people will be getting
into an age old craft. There are
many small groups that are
meeting in homes and
churches and we are happy to
know this is going on. Back in
1983 when the Log Cabin
Quilters was started, there was
a club at Macintosh and that
was all we heard of. Today,
quilting is really making a
come back and we hope you
will join in and have lots of
fun.

We want to thank Kathy
Baker for all the yarn and
scraps she has donated. We

The Buddy Show
.b BuddRyartMi
This isn't your grandpa's
Masters golf tournament
: AUGUSTA, Ga. --
This is not the Masters
I remember that lush
green monster softened
with the bright hues of
the azaleas and the '
p o p c orn wh ite
dogwoods, all .
glimmering in the .
Georgia sunshine. I
haven't been toall the
,Masters since 1934,
'but this was my 36th
and I can't ever recall it being worse for spectators and players
alike.
This week, we got dusty walking trails around Augusta
National and a noseful of pollen, coupled with stiff winds and
chilly temperatures. Yucky brownish red caked shoes and puffs of
j1-l pi.i.: h i .' with contact lenses.
-The golfers might as well have been hitting their drives down
tihestraight-aways of Daytona International Speedway, because
they spent more time on pit stops in the rough trying to negotiate
shots or splashing in the water.
SIt was difficult to keep the ball on the playing surfaces. And
once they reached the slippery greens, finding the bottom of the
fole. was as difficult for some as it was locating the prize golden
egg at one of today's Easter egg hunts. Saturday's scoring average
was over 77 shots.
They came to the House That Bobby Jones Built expecting to
play a Masters, but wound up with U.S. Open conditions, without
the warm weather. Result: By the end of the day Saturday, no
player near par.
Even Tiger Wood said the conditions were brutal and among
"the toughest I've ever seen here" and no doubt almost as difficult
as those he faced at Winged Foot in 2006 when he missed his first
cut at a major.
The difference is that Woods, though struggling this week. has
battled back into contention, just one shot off the lead with his
score of 3 over par. By the time he had moved up to one shot out,
Woods was probably back in his room, perhaps doing nothing, but
working his way back up the leader board.
There was so much blood dripping from the carnage late
Saturday that most of the fairways and greens were a sea of red.
Earlier this week, the players went out like the tide, awash over
Tiger. By Saturday afternoon, they came back to him like the
onrushing waves. The tide had turned.
Having said all that, I could make a case for Tiger not winning
being a good thing for golf; and for the players' struggles making
them more human. The modern players are viewed by some as
techno-freaks whose equipment is far superior to that of Jones'
hickory shafts, anyway, and beneficiaries of a huge competitive
advantage.
Those who enjoy seeing crackups in NASCAR no doubt delight
in watching Vijay Singh giving his Titleist a bath in Ray's Creek
and Phil Mickelson bouncing off the Georgia pines like a
pinballer.


It might also be good for golf is somebody besides Woods and
Mickelson won a major. For all the good Tiger has done for golf,
lie has also dwarfed some of Iis fellow competitors and turned
.perfectly good events into a Kiwanis Scotch Foursome.
STI;..', I 111 not win his fifth green jacket today, but he is going to
keep it interesting. The truth is that Tiger is in better shape to
pounce today thai at any time during the previous 54. And I'll still
take him over the field.
Quick Jump Starts
1. I never thought I'd live to see the day that Florida's-football
coach would have turned down Notre Dame to coach the Gators
and i l. I l. ill coach would say no to the Kentucky job.
2. If he hadn't chosen stop playing basketball for Billy Donovan
and concentrate on playing tight end for Urban Meyer, Cornelius
Ingram could have been the only college athlete in history ever to
have three national championship rings in 366 days.
3. I've heard of makeup calls, but never makeup games, which
is what the officials of the Final Four apparently had when they
refused to call fouls on Ohio State's Greg Oden after fouling him
out against Georgetown.
4. I tend to believe Bobby Bowden when he tells his players that
all 22 positions are not set for the Seminoles and that most of
them are "up for grabs" in next Saturday's FSU spring game.
5. It's good to hear the voice of Pat Summerall back on the CBS
broadcast of the Masters, even if' lie's just the house announcer
who introduces the event,
Short Stuff:
Urban Meyer went on a rant last week about athletes with guns
following tile arrest of offensive lineman Ronnie Wilson, who
fired off an AK47 and was arrested because the Florida coach
takes those kind of events as personal failures by himself and his
assistant coaches ... Don't know how far down the list of
Kentucky basketball coaching candidates Billy Gillispie was, but
you had to love his comments that "anywhere above seventh or
eighth would have been fine by me."
Nothing but 'Net
(With a little help from Buddy's Cyberfriends and a
few of my own)
The Gospel according to St. Titleist
"If you are going to throw a club, it is important to throw it
ahead of you, down the fairway, so you don't have to waste
energy going back to pick it up." -Tommy Bolt.
Bumper sticker, T-Shirt or Sign
1. I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I
couldn't find any.
2. Don't bother me, I'm living happily ever after.
3. Florida Gators, National Chomp-ions.
Today's Joke: His "Street Name"
"I'd like the number for Jennifer Smith in Richmond, Virginia,"
the young man said to the 411 operator.
"There are multiple listings for Jennifer Smith in Richmond,
Virginia," the operator said. "Do you have a street name?"
The young iman hesitated a moment, then replied, "Well, th,
most people call me 'Snake."'
Today's Proverb
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist. the glass
is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs
to be.
And good morning ...
.. to all you Florida basketball f:ns. Consider yourself fortunate
to have Billy Donovan and remember that with gratitude next year
when his young team is struggling.


A Big Thank You
I would like to say a big "Thank You" for all the cards, phone
calls, visits, and especially the prayers I received during my recent
back operation. I realize how truly blessed I am to have such
wonderful friends, and such a loving family. Words alone cannot
sum up my appreciation for all the kindness shown me. Thank you!

Important Things To Remember

About Social Security
By Louis B. Sullivan
District Manager, Gainesville, Florida
There are some important things that you should know
about Social Security. It's important to know them, because it
could mean the difference between a quick, easy move into
retirement and a more troublesome transition.
Here are some things you may not know.
S Net, not gross: For people who are self employed, we
count your net income, not your gross income, when figuring
your credits of coverage and the amount of your future Social
Security benefits. In 2007, you earn one credit for each $1,000 of
net income you earn, up to four annual credits. Net earnings for
Social Security are your gross earnings from your trade or
business, minus your allowable business deductions and
depreciation. We also use your net income when figuring your
benefit amount so a higher net income results in a higher benefit.
Credit where credit is due: If you and your spouse own
and operate a business together and expect to share in the profits
and losses, you may both be entitled to receive Social Security
credits, even if there is no formal partnership agreement. For
each of you to receive credit for your share of the business
income, you must file separate self-employment returns (Schedule
SE's), even if you file a joint income tax return. If you don't file
separate Schedule SE's, all the earnings from the business will be
reported under only one person's Social Security number. In that
case, only one of you will receive Social Security credits and the
valuable protection they provide.
S Household workers are covered: If you are a household
worker, your wages are covered under Social Security as long as
you earn $1,500 or more in a calendar year (including cash for
transportation expenses) unless you were under age 18 during any
part of the year :and household work is not your main job.
Household workers include babysitters, maids, cooks, laundry
workers, butlers, gardeners, chauffeurs, people who do
housecleaning or repair work or anyone employed in or around
someone else's home.
Don't forget to report: If you pay a household worker
$1,500 or more in cash wages during 2007, you need to deduct
Social Security and Medicare taxes and report the wages once a
year when you file your tax return. This includes reporting any
cash you pay to cover the cost of the employee's transportation,
meals, or housing. If you do not report the wages on time, you
may have to pay a penalty in addition to the overdue taxes.
Want to learn more? Just visit our website at
www:socialsecurity.gov to learn all about Social Security. For
specific questions about taxes, visit the Internal Revenue Service
at www.irs.gov. For specific information about self-employment
and household workers go to our publications page at
www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs and look for the publications If You
Are Self-Employed and Household Workers. You can also call us
at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) to request copies of
these and other publications.

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.

Springhouse Quilter's News


A sample of a tee-shirt quilt made by Springhouse
member, Kathy Beaulieu.
Some Springhouse Quilt members have been working on tee-
shirt quits. These are quilts made using keepsake tee-shirts for
someone special. The shirt emblems are the basis for the quilts
and can be made into a very interesting quilt which will tell a
picture story of the events in a person's life. Kathy Beaulieu was
kind enough to make a tee shirt quilt for a neighbor. The tee-shirt
quilt displays many memorable times in the life of the owner. A
tee-shirt quilt is a very special gift for a young person graduating
or leaving to attend college.
Lancaster Correction's employees have been out to the
Springhouse quilt house over the last couple of weeks and worked
on cleaning the yard. We are so blessed to have a group that helps
non-profit groups keep their yards looking beautiful. We truly
appreciate the hard work from the young men in keeping our
yard looking great.
The 2007 raffle quilt is now in a frame and is being hand
quilted. Springhouse members able to hand quilt are requested to
spend some time working on this wonderful blue sampler quilt.
We will be missing some of our members over the next few
months since our northern friends are beginning to make their

Search For Former Judges

Photographs Underway
Dixie County was formed in 1921. Since then we have had
seven County Judges. Our current County Judge, Fred Koberlein,
and his Judicial Assistant, Donna K. Jones, are attempting to
obtain photographs of each former judge so that an appropriate
display may be placed in the Courthouse. They need some help.
Judge Koberlein and Mrs. Jones' research indicates that the
former County Judges are:
W. H. Matthis
August, 1921 November, 1922
T. F. Bryan
November, 1922- December, 1928
E. M. Barber
January, 1929 February, 1936
L. G. Gunter
February, 1936 May, 1952
Ike C. Harmon
September, 1952 December, 1975
Marshall M. Clements
January, 1976 April, 2003
If you have any reason to believe that that list is incorrect,
please call 498 1234.
They have already obtained useable photographs of Judge
Clements, Judge Harmon, and Judge Gunter. They would like to
hear from any one who has a photograph, or can suggest an area to
search for a photograph, of the remaining judges. The condition of
the photograph is immaterial.
