County Applying For Two

Land Acquisition Grants


By Briar Keathley
Dixie County is applying for two Florida
Communities Trust grants that, if awarded, will
enable the county to enhance and create more
outdoor recreational opportunities for its citizens
and visitors. County commissioners reviewed
the two applications at last week's commission
meeting, providing their input to representatives
from Synergy Solutions, the private consulting
firm hired to write the two grants.
One of the grants would provide a 70-
percent reimbursement to the county for its
purchase of the three acres in Jena slated to be
used as a parking facility for boats and trailers
for visitors and locals using the Jena Boat
Ramp, while the other grant would help the
county purchase 22 acres adjacent to Yellow
Jacket Campground to be used as a recreational


park.
Robert Rubin, of Synergy Solutions, told
commissioners the county has a very good
chance of receiving the grants because the
applications meet Florida Communities Trust
requirements. Each year Florida Communities
Trust provides $66 million in funding to local
governments to purchase open spaces that
further outdoor recreational opportunities. As it
determines which applicants receive funding,
Florida Communities Trust uses a type of point
system addressing different types of criterion.
Rubin noted the two applications should score
very high because both are focused on
preservation and increasing recreational.
opportunities.

A "gun-free" environment?
- The reaction to the tragic killing of 32 Virginia Tech students
last week produced the expected reaction from anti-gun activists. It
was even speculated that the Supreme Court would not have ruled
that the District of Columbia's rigid handgun ban was unconstitu-
tional, had the killings occurred a month earlier.
I don't believe there has been a constitutional amendment
.passed rescinding the Second Amendment, which is the only way
the court could have rationally arrived a different verdict in the DC
gun ban case. Legislation in reaction to emotional stimuli is the
reason DC had the gun ban in the first place, and we are fortunate
in having a high court that is not thusly motivated, at least at the
Present time.
SAs for the Virginia Tech situation, Townhall.com columnist
'Lorie Byrd quoted a source that criticized several newspapers who
called it "the worst mass murder in U.S. history." Ms. Byrd
reminds us that on September 11, 2001, we lost about 3,000 people
vhen Islamic terrorists flew hijacked airliners into the Twin
Towers. There was also the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, plus a
second school bombing and an arson that claimed more lives than
Korean exchange student Seung-Hui Cho's murderous escapade.
- None of this is being said to diminish the significance of what
happened at Virginia Tech, however it should be noted that of the
aforementioned incidents in which the carnage was greater, none
involved the use of firearms.
SIt should also not escape our attention that the killings occurred
in an area designated "gun-free." Students and faculty who had
concealed-carry permits understood that they didn't apply on
campus, otherwise it's entirely possible that someone with a gun
wouldd have ended Cho's miserable life before he ran up the
numbers.
It is likewise reasonable to suggest that Cho might not have
embarked on his murderous rampage, Lhd he known there was a
good chance that he'd be gunned down himself before he killed
enough people to keep the incident in the news cycle for more than
a week. Don't ever make the mistake of thinking that people like
that are fearless, even though deranged. Even Muslim suicide
bombers don't seek out their 72 virgins unless they can snuff out a
significant number of "infidels" in the process.
Earlier this month, Atlanta Journal-Constitution editorial page
editor Cynthia Tucker cranked out a column bemoaning the "fact"
(actually only her opinion) that the National Rifle Association
owns the Republican Party, and that even liberal Democrats in
Congress were afraid to propose firearms education because it was
the "third rail" of politics.
Wrong. The NRA does more than the Brady bunch and others
bf that ilk for gun safety because they use firearms education with
real guns, live ammo, and competent instructors. In other words,
they take a real world approach rather than resorting to hysterical
rhetoric.
A student or faculty member with proper training, a
permit-and a gun-could have saved a lot of lives on the Virginia


Tech campus; and that would have been possible, were it not for
the fact that Virginia's state legislature declined to. require that
the university honor state concealed-carry permits.
Let us hope that, while the nation mourns the loss of the
victims, we do not lose sight of the fact that these shootings took
place in a "gun-free" environment.

Letter To The Editor
Building Smarter Every Day
Safe and proper construction of buildings is rarely on your
mind when you enter a home or building. Fortunately, the staff in
the Dixie County Building & Zoning Department thinks about
building safety and fire prevention every day. To help raise your
awareness of building safety, the Dixie County Building &
Zoning Department is celebrating Building Safety Week from
May 6 through 12. During this worldwide celebration, we will be
promoting the use, enforcement, and understanding of building
safety and fire prevention codes to protect lives and property.
"Building Smarter...for Disasters and Everyday Life" is the
theme of Building Safety Week 2007. "
The importance of regulating and enforcing building codes is
often overlooked until a catastrophic tragedy occurs," said Dixie
County Building & Zoning Department, Building Official, Mr.
Jack Spivey. "By inspecting buildings during and after
construction, we help to ensure that buildings in the community
are safe places in which to live, work, play, and learn."
Building code regulations in Dixie County help to ensure that
buildings are as safe as possible. Codes address all aspects of
construction including structural integrity, electrical, mechanical,
and plumbing systems, energy efficiency, and property
maintenance. Effective code enforcement requires the support of
homeowners, architects, builders, engineers, and others in the
construction industry.
"Building Safety Week recognizes the important professionals
who make sure the buildings in our community are safe. Public
safety is our number one concern," said Mr. Spivey. "Building
and fire officials are here to help you understand building safety
issues. In this age of do-it-yourselfers it is extremely important
for homeowners to work with the local building department to
make sure their residences fully comply with building safety
codes."
Building Safety Week, first observed in 1980, is sponsored by
the International Code Council Foundation, an organization
dedicated to changing the devastating effects of natural disasters
and other building tragedies. The Dixie County Building
Department is an active member of the International Code
Council, a membership organization dedicated to building safety
and fire prevention. The International Code Council develops the
codes used to construct residential and commercial buildings,
including homes and schools. Most U.S. cities, counties, and
states that adopt codes choose the International Codes developed
by the International Code Council.

Letter To

The Editor
We would like to take this
time to give thanks to a special
member of our community.
Mr. Larry Taylor is a
teacher in the Dixie County
School System at Anderson
Elementary. He is also a
Martial Arts (karate) instructor
at "Larry Taylor's School of
Martial Arts" located in the big
blue building behind the Court
House next to the City Park.
Mr. Taylor is a remarkable
instructor of the highest
caliber, who takes people
young and old alike and
transforms them into confident
and able martial artist. He
demands the best, yet has the
ability to teach people to
succeed despite physical
limitations and disabilities.
We have personally
witnessed the transformations
of young children who would
not look you in the eye, were
unconfident, and lacked a
measure of self-esteem, into
"confident martial arts
champions and A & B Honor
Roll Students." Children who
have the confidence and ability
to stand up in front of
hundreds of people, present
themselves before a group of
black-belt judges and perform
complicated martial arts
routines. They have learned to
win graciously and except
defeat with honor and dignity.
They have come to realize that
martial arts is not about
fighting, it is about self-
defense, learning about one's
self, and one's abilities. Mr.
Taylor and his instructors
teach the children to respect
their parents, their teachers,
and themselves, while learning
not to respond to peer pressure,
staying away from strangers,
the dangers of drugs, alcohol,
and gang violence.
We have also witnessed
students well up into their
seventies compete in martial
arts tournaments all over the
state. Including the U.S. Open
in Orlando, the largest Martial
Arts event in the nation. Mr.
Taylor has produced many
State Division Martial Arts
Champions as well as
competitors who consistently
place in It, and 2nd place in
many martial arts tournaments.
Mr. Taylor provides a service
to this community far greater
than even he realizes. It is our
hope that others young and old
realize the positive effects that
martial arts (karate) can have
on someone.
Thank you Mr. Taylor,
from your students and karate
family. Lolena Feltner & Family,

were here. She loved the springs and we took her to meet her
Aunt Rustie Reilly and her cousin Jaron Peterson in New Smyrna
Beach, Fla and she loved swimming in the beach.
Angela Jo wants to come back and see the rest of Florida we
had no time for and we would love to have her come back as well.


American

Legion Post
149 News
It's that time of year again.
Post Officer Elections! When
.all members go into hiding so
as to not be elected to any post
:or position in the local Legion
Post. And then those members
can fuss about how the Post is
:being run into the ground by
those interlopers that have no
:business in running an
-American Legion Post. Why,
'those nabobs have no idea how
the Post should be run! Why
can't those people just do it
:right! Any of this sound
;: familiar? When we as
:Legionnaires sit back and let
:someone, ANYONE, else run
:the Post, with no help or
assistance from other
members, we are asking for
trouble.
All Legionnaires in the
Post need to pitch in to see the
Post is run properly. If there
are new officers, let the Past
Officers help get these new
folks off to a
good start. Stand ready to
assist with the jobs at hand
until the new Officers get the
hang of the
job. If everyone in the Post
were to lend a hand, the
individual jobs would be a lot
easier. Make sure the new
Officer Candidates understand
that they must attend most all
of the meetings, and be a
member in good standing in
the Post, which means that the
-current dues are paid in full for
this year in the Post. Ensure
'these new Officer Candidates
-are aware of what the
Job entails. That information is
-in the Post Officer's Manual,
as well in the memories of the
Past Officers of that position.
-'The duration of the position is
from July to June of the next
year and as part of the
Executive Committee, those
"Officers run the business of the
.1.gion Post. While some
'of the positions have a bit
more work involved, with help
from the Past Officers and the
members of the Post, the jobs


can be rewarding and
sometimes even fun. Step
forward and help lead your
American Legion Post into and
beyond this next year.Get
involved with the programs
and see how they can affect the
community and the veterans in
our communities. Newberry
American Legion Post 149
meets on the first Tuesday of
the month at 7:00 PM at the
Post Home on the west side of
Newberry. And elections are
planned for the May
meeting.Plan to attend and
stand ready to help Post 149

Log Cabin

Quilter's News
Log Cabin Quilter's met
Thursday April 19"' at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
What a wonderful rain we had
on Wednesday night. Now
everything is smiling and
blooming and the yard is
turning green. The rain that
we receive is worth so much
more than what comes out of
the ground. We can use more,
but so thankful for whatever
we get.
Several of our members are
on vacation, or going to the
Doctor, or taking someone
somewhere, but we still had a
great day. Sarah Small will be
going back to Illinois next
week and we will miss her, as
she got so much quilting done
while she was here. We will
miss her and look forward to
seeing our Illinois members
back in the fall.
We are looking forward to
our church luncheon coming
up May 11. Sometime we only
see friends once a year but it's
always great to see them. We
have held these luncheons for
several years and at one time
we did it twice a year, but time
changes things and it has been
changed to the first Tuesday in
May and not in the fall.
We are having lots of
visitors out that will be going
back to the cold country and
we feel sorry for them, as we
do have such wonderful
weather so much of the time.
Everyday is a great day and no
matter what comes about our
only safety is in our Lord.
Lunch was again so good,
Chicken and Rice, Fried
Cabbage, Macaroni and
Cheese, Two different Chicken
Pot Pies, Beans, and the most
wonderful Strawberry Cake.
Marie made homemade bread
that was so good.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2007


"GRANTS"

Contd. from

page 1A
If the reimbursement grant
is awarded for the three acres
in Jena, the county would
receive $472,500-70 percent
of the original $645,000
purchase price.
The county received some
public criticism within the last
few years for its purchase of
the property, however,
according to Commissioner
Marcus Hays, the Board of
County Commissioners had the
foresight to know that
reimbursement grants were
available, and the thought
process in mind was for long-
term planning.
"We knew that with the
way Florida is pushing eco-
tourism, the use of our coastal
area and boat ramps would
drastically increase in the next
10 years," Hays said. "Some
people prefer fishing and
boating to theme parks."
After the county receives
the reimbursement, it would
have 10 years to develop the
property into "Steinhatchee
River Trailhead Park," which
would include boat trailer
parking, a canoe/kayak ramp, a
children's playground, a
wildlife observation platform
and an "Old Florida Style"
'museum.
Upon reviewing the
conceptual site plan for the
park, commissioners noted the
amount of boat trailer parking
seemed insufficient.
"It doesn't look like there's
near enough trailer parking to
me," Commissioner Buddy
Lamb stated. He explained that
the intention of purchasing the
three acres was to provide
adequate parking for the boat
trailers using the public Jena
Boat Ramp and looking at the
site plan, there seemed to be
only about 15 or 20 parking
spaces, which would do little
to provide over-flow parking
during busy weekends or
scallop season when there can
be 200 boat trailers parked at
the boat ramp.
Rubin said more parking
spaces could be added, but that
'the county would lose points
'on' its' application.
"I want as much parking as
possible, without losing any of
"the reimbursement," Hays
'stated.
Rubin informed
'commissioners of two homes
'located north of the property
that, after the grant is won,
could be purchased in order to
provide additional parking
space.
Reviewing the grant
application for "Yellow Jacket
Park," Rubin pointed out the
many amenities the park would
offer including a nature trail to
the Suwannee River Wildlife
Refuge, car and trailer parking,
a picnic pavilion, a canoe
launch, and a historic building
and trailhead and nature center.
The county is applying for a
100-percent grant to help it pay
for the estimated $5.05 million
project.
The application deadline is
May 9th and Florida
Communities Trust will make
its decision in September of
this year.



"CLEAN UP"

specified in the notice, the city
may then remedy the problem
and the property owner will be
responsible for paying any
costs the city incurs while
doing so.

: The city will have legal
enforcementt options as well to
address violations of the clean-
Pp ordinance.


r "The goal of the Council is
riot to become a problem to the
community, Cassidy said,
explaining that the Council's
Potent is to simply clean up the
rity.
In conjunction with the
5ity's clean-up ordinance, the
Council would like to remind
citizens that the city will pick
up leaves and limbs (yard
debris) that are up to four
inches in diameter and up to
four feet long. Also, the city is
no longer picking up items
such as furniture, appliances
and building materials.


"TORCH RUN"

Contd. from

page 1A
Each year, more than 3,000
law enforcement officers carry
the torch on a 1500-mile relay
through more than 60 counties
in Florida. Funds are generated
along the way from the sale of
T-shirts and hats. All of the
money raised goes toward the
Special Olympics Florida
Summer State Games, which
will be held this Saturday and
Sunday in Tampa.
Cross City Correctional
Institute Assistant Warden
Mike Pleskovich said 15 staff
members from CCCI
participated in the annual torch
run which started at the
institution and ended at the
Dixie County Courthouse. The
torch run began at 8 a.m. as a
group of walkers, escorted by a
Dixie County Sheriff's Office
patrol vehicle, departed the
institution. Twenty minutes
later, the runners set out with
torch in hand. The goal was to
try to simultaneously arrive at
the Courthouse; however, there
were delays due to stopping for
photographs and to keep the
torch lit. But in the end,
Pleskovich said, in terms of
promoting the Special
Olympics and firing up team
spirit for the officers, the run
was a success. This was the
fifth consecutive year CCCI
participated in the Law
Enforcement Torch Run.
The following CCCI staff
participated: James Woodard,
Peter Peppers, Barry
Buchanan, Timothy Turner,
Edgar Hart, Robert Eustice,
John Webster, Kenneth
Spillers, Talsie Brown, Brian
Rose, Cassie Driggers, Becky
Evans, Veronica Driggers,


"DANNY SHIRLEY"

Contd. from page 1A
Tennessee city. When Danny recorded his very first album, well
before Confederate RR, Shelton was doing extensive studio work
as both a musician and producer. It was on Danny's initial 1984
release, tilled "Local Legend", that Shellon played lead guitar.
Shelton has had a very extensive musical career covering
many genres of popular music. At the tender age of seventeen,
Shelton landed a New York gig working with the Chambers
Brothers, one of the first Black rock and roll bands in the late
'60's. But Shelton missed the laid-back ways of the South, and
moved to Memphis as a session guitarist and bassist for Rick
Hall's Fame Studios. He also spent ten years with the fabled Bill
Lowery Organization in Atlanta, working as a writer, musician and
producer. There he worked on recordings by Johnny Nash,
Alabama, Starbuck, and Florida native Bertie Higgins, for which
he earned his first gold record for the smash hit "Key Largo".
In the mid-'90's, Mr. Irwin opened the Hard Dock Caf6 in
Cedar Key. It was here that icon Bo Diddley made his
homecoming return performance to north central Florida from New
Mexico. He was backed by Shelton, Bob Leichner, and other
members of the Terraplane Blues Band. Over the years, Irwin has
worked extensively with Bo as both a musician and producer.
Shelton Irwin is looking forward to working the show with his
old "home-boy" Chattanooga pal Danny Shirley at Red Belly Day
2007, Saturday May 26 at Fanning Springs State Park.

Where Are We?
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."
"The average age of the world's greatest
civilizations from the beginning of history, has
been about 200 years."
"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."

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2007


In Their Shoes
If you see your brother
falter, Don't be quick to scorn;
Maybe the load that he carried,
Was a little heavy to be borne.
You don't know what the
trouble was, That caused him
to fall; And perhaps if you had
helped him, He wouldn't have
stumbled at all.
You say he's weak because
he fell, Well, that could be
true; but just try to think how it
would feel, If that person had
been you.
Before you start to talk too
much, Because a brother fell
neathh the load; Put yourself in
his place and ask, How far
could I have traveled that
road?
Who knows what you'd do,
If you had to feel his pain?
When you take it on your
shoulders, Somehow it just
isn't the same.
Criticism doesn't come so
easily, When the load is shifted
to you; And you find yourself
forgiving your brother,
Because you faltered a little,
too.
When next you see a
brother stumble, And harsh
words your lips start to form;
Just remember you may be the
next on the path,
And your load may not be
so-easily borne.
Try to help someone who's
failed, And this is an adage
much used; But when you find
fault in another, Just put
yourself "In Their Shoes"
For all the talkers who are
out there talking about
someone. Take a look at
yourself. With Love, Teva
Tyson Teague.

Notice
To the lady and her son who
had their picture made with H.
K. Edgerton by Joe Sparacino
on: February 26, please give
hiri a call at 498-3903. He has
your picture ready.

The Word Made Flesh
The Name of the Beast
SContinued from last week. I
have shown you these four
BEASTS having these EYES
BEFORE THEM and BEHIND
THEM. They were in the throne
of Heaven, but THEY WERE
"BEASTS". All they could see
wa something out yonder that
they thought was coming. They
were prophesying of the things
they said would soon be given to
the sons and daughters of God.
They were speaking of those
things "THEY THOUGHT"
would come in and on the earth;
destruction, etc. These EYES in
these BEASTS could see only
BEFORE THEM and BEHIND
THEM. Remember these work in
and among the people of God.
This CARNAL NATURE
continuously reads what happened
back at Jerusalem, or back in the
days of Jesus. But, the most
important thing of the scriptures is
being able to see what is in the
MIDDLE what is happening
now! This is what we must know.
The Apostle Paul said, "...now is
the ACCEPTED TIME." "Now is
the DAY OF SALVATION."
"...the DAY is at HAND." (Read
2 Corinthians 6:2 and Romans
13:12). These scriptures are
written in present tense. These
beasts could not see what was
happening aty the present time.
They cannot see what is taking
place "NOW", spiritually. They
are teaching what is back behind
us, and what they thought was
coming in the future (prophecy).
All they could see was something
out ahead of us that they imagined
in their own mind was coming.
They could see nothing in the
middle (present now) present
tense. Remember, these beasts are
working in God's people. These
people do not know what the
CARNAL MIND is. In
Revelation 4:8, you find FOUR
BEASTS mentioned. Each
BEAST had SIX WINGS about
him. These WINGS were FULL
OF EYES "WITHIN." We cannot
live on what is out before us and
has not 'come to pass, nor what is


behind us and already finished.
We have to know what God has
for us now. The beast mind will
lead you wrong and teach you
wrong. The REAL
REVELATION OF JESUS
CHRIST must be brought to us
now. We want to know what "HE
IS NOW," not just what "HE
WAS, or what HE WILL BE."
Now is the day of salvation.
(Please read 2 Corinthians 6:2 and
Romans 13:11-14). Please stay ip
with me. I will be telling you the
name of the beast. Continued next
week.


Faith Baptist Church News
Today was a wonderful day at Faith. Our crowd was very
large, we had lots of visitors and God was moving in a special way
among us. Janet Osteen did the special music in the morning
service and the Crenshaws in the evening service. Bro. Jackie was
back and did a great job of delivering 2 good messages. The Spirit
was very strong.
Start now getting ready for our revival coming in May. It's
never too early to invite people to hear God's messages brought to
us through the evangelist. Invite a neighbor, a friend, co-worker or
relative to come with you. It may be just the invitation they've
been waiting on and how God would bless you if someone was
saved because of your invitation. All of Heaven would smile on
you for your efforts.
If you've been missing Sunday School, we urge you to come
back out and join us in your class. We have wonderful teachers
and lots of friendly faces to welcome you. We miss you when
you're not here.
Remember to pray for the Awanas and the instructors as
they meet on Wednesday night. Bring your children and let them
be a part of Awanas if you haven't been doing so. The children
love it and the teachers are outstanding. They learn a lot about
Jesus.
We will be praying for you this week, and especially
remember to pray for the sick in our fellowship and around the
community. We'll be looking for you next week. Wednesday
night is a special night also as we gather to learn more about Jesus,
so try to come out Wednesday night for your mid-week fillup.
Don't forget Sunday School at 9:45 on Sunday AM. Until then,
may God bless you, keep you healthy and happy and burden your
heart to be a part of all the church services.


Lydia Baptist Church News
Once again, Lydia was alive with the Holy Spirit on Sunday.
The Lord blessed us with a glorious day in which to worship
Him and sing his praises! Pastor Wayne Allen brought us a
"wake -up" message from Romans 1:20 on how we make
excuses for not being saved. Having your name on a church
membership roll is not enough! God is always with us, to help
us, so we have no excuse we must have a repentant heart, and
must want to do His work. When we finally arrive in God's
courtroom, what will we say? We cannot lie to Him, because He
knows all about us! There will be no excuses then! God will
never close the way for you. You are the one standing in the
way! Isaiah 42:16). Our Sunday evening "sing" was a great
success in addition to our congregational hymns; we enjoyed 10
powerful songs of praise from a dozen or so participants. How
we love to sing praises to our Lord! We invite everyone in the
community to our wonderful Sunday school: the men's and the
ladies classes provide stimulating lessons as we study The Word.
You'll love our inspiring Bible teachers. Men's Ladies and
children's Sunday school begin at 9:45a.m. Our exciting
vacation Bible School is scheduled for the final week of June, so
mark it on your calendar! Remember, at Lydia, everyone is
somebody, and Christ is everything.

Sing At New Prospect
Sing at new Prospect Baptist Church, this Saturday night, April
28"' at 6:30 p.m. This will be our regular monthly Gospel Sing.
Last month we enjoyed some new folks singing, and we hope this
month, more of you will come out to be with us. The 4th Saturday
night of each month, mark your calendars! Come Play and Sing.
Everyone welcome.


Fundraiser
The Jena Pentecostal
Holiness Church is having a
Chicken Dinner on Saturday,
April 28th at the Church to

In Loving Memory Of Mickey T. Herring
August 25, 1949 April 25, 2001


Daddy, you have already missed so much. We wish you were
here to share in the joy as your grandchildren were born. Each of
them with their own special personality, yet with a couple things in
common, their stubbornness and independence, no doubt a Herring
trait. There are four of them now, Jaxson, Kylah, Graycen, and
Nathalie. Though they will not meet you here on this earth, they
will hear the stories each told a little different by all of us. They
will always know you loved them. You will always be
remembered. We love you daddy, until we meet again.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3 Heaven and Hell
Continued from last week. There are three natural atmospheres
arising from the sun of the world, and there are three spiritual atmospheres
arising from the sun of heaven, which is the Lord. The three natural
atmospheres arising from the sun of the world are the purer ether, which is
universal, from which is all gravitation; the middle ether, which forms the
vortex around the planets, in which are the moon and the satellites from
which is magnetism, and the ultimate ether which is the air. These three
atmospheres hold all the corporeal and material things of the earth
together, which are so composed as to be applicable to those three degrees.'
The three spiritual atmospheres arising form the sun of heaven, are those
in which are the angels of the three heavens. In the two higher
atmospheres are the angels of the Lord's celestial kingdom; in the third
and the first natural which is pure ether, are the angels of the Lord's
spiritual kingdom, and in the atmospheres following those two which are
the middle and the ultimate ether which is the air, are men while they are
in the natural world. Say it should be known, that the atmospheres arising
from the sun of heaven, which is the Lord properly speaking, are not three,
but sic, there are three above the sun of he world, and there are three
below it. The three below the sun of the world constantly accompany the
three natural atmospheres, and enable a man in the natural world to think
and to feel. For the atmospheres arising from the sun of the world have'
not life in themselves, because they originate from a sun which is pure'"
fire; but the atmospheres arising for the sun of heaven, which is the Lord,'
have life in themselves, because they originate in the sun, which is pure
love and pure wisdom. The atmospheres, which originate from the sun of
the world, which is pure fire, cause those things on the earth, and in the
human body, to subsist and be held in connection together, and they are
not changed except according to the laws of natural order.
Pastor's Anniversary
The First Baptist Church of Cross City, located off of Oliver St
behind Pepper's Park would like to invite everyone to come and
celebrate another glorious year of our pastor's service with us.
Rev. A.L. Powell will be honored this 6"' day of May 2007 at 1:00
p.m. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend, we look to see
you there. Any help from other churches will be appreciated. May
God richly bless each of you.

SHow Can The Social Secunty Disability Spealist At 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.

Your Help Is Needed!
You can help send DCHS members of the Brain Bowl team to Chicago to compete
in the National Championship by donating money to
Si. help make their dream come true.
Chicago or BuThe Brain Bowl team from Dixie County..;
High School has a dream and you can play-
an important part in making this dreamri
come true. After placing second in the
state competition they were qualified to:
make the trip to nationals. It will cost
-'' approximately $4000. for students and-:
sponsors to attend the competition in"
Chicago.
Last week, selected Florida teachers,
/ i, joined together in Tallahassee under the':
-- guidance of the Florida Department of.
Education to review FCAT Writing+,.
Reading and Math assessments. Committee participants included teachers from around the state,-
members of the Department of Education and Harcourt Associate.
During the introductory session, high school reading teacher, George Anderson of Dixie:-
County High School shared an extraordinary story of his students' success in statewide.
competition in "Brain Bowl". Anderson's story began with his friend and colleague, Stan Young,
Math Professor at Chipola College and Brain Bowl Coach. Young started a high school brain bowl
tournament competition three years ago in the spring. As part of an outreach initiative, Stan'
invited George to participate in Brain Bowl. George, his assistant coach Diana Locke and his 9.
students joined Brain Bowl 3 weeks before the tournament. The unusual thing about Dixie County-
High School's team is that it is composed of sophomores -Brain Bowl members are most often
upper classmen.
Competition consists of 5 round robin matches with three divisions. Brain Bowl is like-
Jeopardy but you play with teams of four persons. Students are asked questions in the academic
areas of humanities, math, natural sciences, and social sciences and can include current events,-
sports, the Bible, etc. The Dixie County High School team went 4-1 and qualified as one of the
four teams to battle it out for the championship.
The final rounds arrived and Dixie County, the #4 seed, defeated the #1 seed, Holmes County,
High School of Bonifay, Florida.
When the final competition began, Dixie County faced Marianna High.School. Marianna's
seniors defeated Dixie County 165-115. This qualified Marianna and Dixie County for the:
national championship in Chicago, Illinois.
Marianna High School has decided not to participate in the national championship competition"
while Dixie County High School has decided to compete. Upon Anderson sharing his students'
successful academic journey and the need for money to support their dream, the members of the
FCAT committee decided to get together and give some money to Anderson's team. They
collected $240. and presented it to a shocked and dedicated teacher. It was simply teachers being
teachers, banding together for students.
The dream of going to Chicago for these rural school students in a school of 600, 9th 12th-'"
grade, lives on. The team has received approximately $1300 of the $4,000 needed to go which'-
covers entry fees, hotel, flights and food expenses.
If there are any individuals or organizations that would like to help Dixie County High School,
you may either contact George Anderson at Dixie County High School, P.O. Box 1180, Cross
City, Florida 32628, Email: georgeanderson@dixie.kl2.fl.us.

The Buddy Show

Guns have no place on

college campuses


The issue of guns on
college campuses has
never been more
magnified as now.
What happened in
Blacksburg, Va. last
week is a primary
example of why there
should be better
security at institutions
of higher learning and


a more vigilant attempt to eliminate weapons.
Never mind all the NRA lobbyists who will say it was the
deranged student who caused the death of 33 and not the gun. The
fact is that firearms have no place on campuses, just as they don't
in airports, high schools, courtrooms, etc.
A disturbing trend has emerged among athletes brandishing guns.
first at the professional level and now among college athletes.
It's bad enough to have NFL players being shot and killed by gang
members as happened in Denver or Adam "Pacman" Jones setting
off a riot in a Las Vegas strip club which later resulted in the
shooting of two people.
It can't be tolerated by college athletes, who should be booted off
the team and out of school for possession andlor firing of guns.
Most recently in Gainesville, offensive lineman Ronnie Wilson
slot an automatic weapon in tle parking lot of a night club in
attempt to intimidate a rival. His case is awaiting trial. but my
guess is that Wilson will be punted out of the program like a
football.
There wass an incident last year involving a Gator football player
who was leaving for the NFL who hosted several in-school
players at his apartment wlen an automatic weapon went off the
bullet went through the wall. Disciplinary action was taken, but if
it happened today the punishmaent might be much more severe.
There is already a school policy against guns on campus at most
colleges, but it ought to be layered with yet more NCAA
legislation punishing the athlete, the program and the institution
for such incidents.
I applaud the tough stance on bad actors by NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell. It's time for college administrators to follow suit.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Boy, this is a new techno bashing technique: Coaches whining
because Urban Meyer sent "too many" text messages to college
prospects, something that was well within the rules but may soon
be frowned upon by the NCAA.
2. On the other, given that some embarrassing personal messages
sent by Arkansas Coach Houston Nutt came to light when through
a public records request,. IIb.i, .. .. t.lii ill cease and desist on
their own.
3. 1 suppose there will be a core of fans in New York who will
bust on Alex Rodriguez for not driving in the tying run against the
Red Sox Friday night at Fenway even though A-Rod had
homered twice earlier.
4. Now that NFL Draft Poster Boy Calvin Johnson of Georgia
Tech has owned up to smoking marijuana, you wonder had badly
that will impact his draft position and wonder why Florida
defensive Marcus Tlomas has done a free fall for doing the same
thing.
5. Do you suppose maybe Bobby Bowden's refusal to name a
starter between Xavicr Lee and Drew Rutherford means le's
going to do the two-headed quarterback thing that worked so well


for Florida?
Short Stuff:
The University of Central Florida is dropping the word "Golden"
from its team name and will be known as just the "Knights,"
which makes you wonder what group was offended by that term
... Joey Crawford calling a technical foul on Tim Duncan and
then challenging the Spurs' center to a fight was one of the most
reprehensible acts by an NBA official that I've ever seen ... As
many as 14 Florida Gators are likely to go in the NFL Draft on
Saturday, with safety Reggie Nelson and defensive end Jarvis
Moss being taken in the first round the first Gators taken that
high since Rex Grossman since 2003.
Buddy's E-Mail Bag
Dear Mr. Martin:
Not all Ohio State alumni go north after March 31st. A few of us
linger behind to suffer abuse from columnists (such as yourself),
and from the general public should we venture outdoors wearing
anything bearing the words "Ohio State." The Florida Gators have
won back-to-back basketball national championships, wrapped
around a football national championship. They are on top in
collegiate athletics, and deservedly so. But they, and their fans,
would do well to display (or pretend to display) a little
modesty. Ohio State has more Heisman winners, more national
football championships, and more basketball championships than
the Florida Gators. Coach Jim Tressel constantly instructs his
players to hand the ball to an official after scoring a touchdown,
admonishing them to "behave as if you've been there before."
Florida sports fans continually make it clear to the rest of the
country that they haven't been there before, and lack the class to
be there now.
Dale H. Gleason, Arcadia
Dale: To the victors go the spoils. It's best that neither side take
themselves too seriously, but most importantly let's at least keep a
sense of humor.
This just in
I'm not one of those bowl bashers who see the excessive post-
season games as evil, so the fact that there will be 32 of them this
fall is OK with me. However, some of the sponsor names are a
little obscure and almost humorous, although none will ever equal
.the former Weedwacker Bowl. My favorites on the new
list are: Brut Sun, PetroSun Independence, Pioneer Pure Vision
Las Vegas, R+L Carriers New Orleans and the San Diego County
Credit Union Poinsettia.

Today's Joke
A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to
their six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you please say the
blessing?"
"I don't know what to say," the girl whispered." Just say what you
hear Mommy say," the mother answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I
invite all tlese people? to dinner?"
Today's Proverb
Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river.
And not such a good morning ...
... for all those impacted by the tragic slaying at Virginia Tech.
Sports is a good medium for the inducement of healing because so
many communities get behind those who are afflicted. I, too, will
be rooting for the Hokies.


In front of a good crowd of people Saturday night at Bruce Boyette Stadium, the "Odd" number
year won the game 30-0. After the winning the first three games of the 'Even-Odd" Annual
Tournament the "Even Team" could not claim the victory this year.
For the "Odd Team" Donnell Teague ran the ball back the length of the football field to score the
last touchdown of the game. The difference in this year's game could have been that the "Odd
Team" had the "Total Package II" Andrews Rains playing for them. And while Curtis Davis was
officially the oldest player on the field, School Board Member Patrick Bell stated from the
sidelines that he had "officially" retired from that position.

The "Odd" team, coached by Andrew Thomas, included Paul O'Hara, Jeremy Carter, Karl Nettles,
James Smith, Laney Buzbee, Andrew Rains, Donnell Teague, J. T.. Herring, Jesse Teague, James
Henderson, Jeremy Campbell, Caleb Bell, Edward Evans, Kris Keen, Jeff Hodge, Ralph Jones,
Justin Barber, and Curtis Davis.
The Even Year Team was coached by Jerry Wayne Evans and Andy Chesser.
Members included: Chris Hackle, Terrell Royal, Cedric Perry, Mario Godbolt, Ashley Teague,
Daniel Spiejers, Moon Dawson, Tracy Collins, William Bennett, Dwayne McCallister, Chris Selzi,
Rodney Scott, Sr., Kyle Felty, Derrick Godbolt, Antonio Williams, Aaron Dawson, Will Adkins,
Demarius Lovett, Joey Whittington, Adam Kirk, George Carraway, David Jeffries, Frank
Whitehead, Robert Yarrell and Evan Creel.

Sturgeon Collision Injures
St. Petersburg Woman
A jumping sturgeon injured a woman, knocking her from her
personal watercraft (PWC) and into the Suwannee River, March
31.
Sharon Touchton, 50, of St. Petersburg, was traveling north on
the river with her PWC club, Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) investigators said. The group
had launched from Yellow Jacket boat ramp, where they had been
camping.
Just upriver from the Wannee Boat Ramp, approximately five
miles west of Bell, Touchton entered a large curve in the river at
about 25 to 30 miles per hour. Other members of her club had
spread themselves out, so there were no witnesses to the collision.
Touchton's husband, Nick, was next to enter the curve and found
her floating face-down in the water, according to FWC officials.
Club members flagged down a passing pontoon boat, which
brought Touchton to the Wannee boat ramp, where she was met
by emergency medical personnel.
Touchton was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville with
serious but non-life-threatening injuries, FWC officials said.
Because of her injuries and the fact that there were no
witnesses to the incident, FWC investigators had to piece together
what had actually happened to Touchton.

Brown Named To Vytex Technical
Advisory Board
Vystar Corporation has
appointed RN Simona Brown
to its Vytex Technical Advisory
Board. A Suwannee, Florida,
resident, Brown will consult on
product development and
marketing of VytexTM, a new
natural rubber latex (NRL) with
antigenic protein levels so low
as to be "undetectable."
Vystar President William R.
Doyle announced the Brown
appointment noting, "We are
privileged to have Simona on
our Technical Advisory Board.
She brings a wealth of expertise Simona Brown
in OR nursing practices and the
implications of latex allergy for the health care profession."
With the development of Vytex NRL, Vystar is charting the
future of latex. "Making latex safe is our mission," Doyle said,
adding, "Conceivably in the future, Vytex NRL will be used in
every instance where NRL or its substitute synthetics are used
today. Nowhere is this more important than in healthcare
applications."
It is estimated that 1 percent to 6 percent of the general
population suffers from latex sensitivity, yet approximately 8
percent to 18 percent of regularly exposed individuals (specifically
health care workers) have some level of latex allergy.
S Vytex NRL is expected to be introduced in manufactured
products later this year. Among the groups considering the benefits
of Vytex NRL are the healthcare industry and makers of adhesives,
mattresses, elastic threads and dozens of other consumer products.
About Vystar: Vystar Corporation was named a Top 10
Innovative Technology Company this year by the Technology
Association of Georgia. It is a privately funded corporation located
in-the Atlanta area. The company's operations have been focused
substantially on early-stage research, development, testing and
commercialization of the Vytex process. Vystar holds two U.S.
patents for the VytexTM technology, with additional filings
pending. For more information, please visit www.vytex.com.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. The photo above
is of a popular and common tattoo type that young teens and
college age spring-breakers are finding appealing.
This article is to inform and make aware to parents and teens
alike of the not so temporary dangers of "The Black Henna" tattoo.
Black Henna can damage your skin causing nasty blisters and even
permanent scarring. The catch is that it is temporary. Most henna
tattoos are temporary allowing that they do not have the additive
PPD, which is a chemical approved for hair dye, the additive is
touted to make your temporary tattoo art darker, last longer, and
look more like a "real" tattoo. Phenylenediamine, also called PPD
bfr short, is used in the production of certain plastics, rubber
products, and many types of dyes and pigments, including hair
dye. PPD is well known for causing allergic reactions in some
people. This mixture of Henna dyes and PPD is presented as
"Black Henna".
Henna is a brown'to reddish brown dye made from the leaves
of a plant found in North Africa and Asia. Since it typically
produces a brown, orange-brown, or reddish-brown tint, other
ingredients like PPD are added to produce colors such as those
marketed as black henna. But the only legal use of PPD in
cosmetics is as a hair dye. Henna is not known to cause allergic
reactions by itself but when mixed with PPD, the result could be
real ugly.
If unfortunately you have chosen to receive a Black Henna
tattoo, and you are experiencing a blistering and itching reaction to
it, you should go to a doctor. In addition, you should report the
injury by contacting the local County Health Department's
Environmental Health Division.

A Thank You To The Many

Friends Of Jim Boy
There have been so many expressions of love and affection
shown to me and my family throughout Jim's cancer treatment,
and his passing on Saturday. March 31. 1 am deeply touched by
the kindness and efforts of so many that we call "friends".
From the bottom of my heart I thank you. Ann Spence-Boy.
