Underdawgs To Play At Red Belly Day


By Briar Keathley
Approaching a May 18
deadline to submit its permit
application for a water
treatment plant to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, Cross City is
working with engineers to
determine the best design for a
water treatment plant to ensure
the city's water meets FDEP
potable water requirements. In
recent days, numerous tests
have been completed and it
appears that the city's best
option is to add chemicals and


a Packed Aeration Tower
(PAT) to the water plant, and
possibly to take the 18-inch
water line that goes to Cross
City Correctional Institution
out of service.
According to City Manager
Mike Cassidy, the city's
engineers, DRMP
Engineering, determined
through chemical trials that the
combination of alum and
sodium permanganate worked
best to bring the levels of
contaminants such as


trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and
haloacetic acids (HAA5s) just
below the accepted levels.
These chemical trials were run
on the "worst" water wells to
simulate worst case scenarios.
By adding these chemicals,
to the water and utilizing a:
PAT, which strips:
contaminants from the water.
when the water is forced-
through the tower via a
blower, the city's water quality
should meet FDEP

Supreme Court gets it right
The United States Supreme Court recently upheld a law passed
by Congress in 2003 that allows states to prohibit an extra-
brdinarily gruesome procedure known (to its adherents) as "intact
'iation and extraction"; but let's call it what it is: partial birth
abortion.
The gory details of this procedure being common knowledge, I
will spare our readers the description in order to focus on the
importance of having competent jurists on the Supreme Court, and
also to clarify where the various presidential, candidates, both
formally announced and potential, weigh in on the subject.
Last week's MSNBC love-in posing as a debate among
:Democratic presidential hopefuls produced a gaggle of candidates
:who agreed on nearly all the left-wing talking points, especially in
their condemnation of the high court's ruling supporting the partial
birth abortion ban.
When the decision was first announced, I illary Clinton, echoed
by the rest of her party's hopefuls, sounded like the Supreme Court
had just decided that all women in America would be required to
bear unwanted children, even at the risk of their health or their
lives. They didn't even get that incensed over the prospect that we
might actually win the war in Iraq!
Bear in mind that a considerable majority of Americans oppose
'partial birth abortion; but these candidates are apparently
,motivated by something more meaningful (to them) than the
-preferences of the American public.
These presidential hopefuls talk in terms of "settled law" when
:talking about the controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which
Zdealt only with first trimester abortions. Interestingly, the late
.Byron White, a JFK appointee to the Supreme Court, voted against
-the majority, and his party's presidents haven't appointed a pro-life
:"Jurist to the Supreme Court since.
- Chuck Colson recently penned a colt :nn that accused the Phil-
',adelphia Inquirer of "anti-Catholic bigot, y" for its treatment of the
''five justices who upheld the partial-birth abortion ban. And he was
:fight in terms of the way the Inquirer presented its case. But he was
Qoff base in criticizing Jews and Protestants just because they were
represented by the four judges who voted to overrule the ban.
\ There are three major divisions within Judaism, these being the
SOrthodox, Conservative and Reform. 'Ihe Orthodox are the strictest
;adherents to the Old Testament Law, the Conservative being
"observant but lest stringently so, and the Reform being very much
:on the liberal side. I have no idea where Ruth Bader Ginsberg fits
.into the picture, however she voted against the partial birth
:abortion ban. I would presume that this meant she was not of the
:Conservative branch, and certainly not the Orthodox. H lowever we
:should also remember that Catholic Senators Ted Kennedy and
:.ohn Kerry seem to be all right with partial birth abortion, yet for
some reason they haven't been excommunicated.
As for "Protestantism," there really is no such thing. The term
;Protestant essentially includes any denomination that even claims
1to be Christian but is not Roman Catholic. I however, most
'Protestant denominations oppose abortion, especially the partial-


:birth variety, even if all their members don't.
Incidentally; all the announced Republican presidential
:contenders (even Rudy Giuliani) liked the decision.
' Paul Greenberg said it best in the concluding paragraph of a
recent column: "This ruling liom a narrowly divided court is no
landmark victory for life. It's just another small step away liom the
inorally, ethically and aesthetically repugnant. But of such small
advances is civilization made."

DAV Chapter

63 Meeting

Scheduled
The monthly meeting of
Disabled American Veterans,
Chapter 63 will be held at the
usual time, that being 7:00 pm
(1900 for those not having
adjusted to civilian time), at
the chapter headquarters near
Cross City.
We're hoping for a good
turnout, owing to the fact that
we have a couple of

fundraising items on the
agenda and will need a bit
more member participation
than has been the case at the
last few meetings. Nothing
strenuous, mind you, just some
enthusiastic participation.
Later this month, we'll be
attempting to raise a few bucks
by offering "Forget-Me-Nots",
which are attractive artificial
flowers that do not need
watering or fertilizer and are
suitable for display on collars
and lapels. Donations for
these items will be appreciated.
Another fund-raising
project involves chances on a
rod and reel, along with an
assortment of bait and tackle.
See any DAV member for
details.
If you're a DAV member
and it's been a long time since
you've been to a meeting (we
know there are many of you
out there), let us reInind you
that we haven't moved. Just in


case you've forgotten, just turn
off US 19, at the blinker light
southeast of Cross City, right
at the stop sign, and look for
the first building on your left.

Confederate Flag Dedicated To
Dixie Defenders No. 2086


7-4
,; ,, ,'
*,^& ~ ~ i .,t s^ I~


A confederate flag that flew in Baghdad, Iraq, with a combat
M.P. Company was dedicated to the Dixie Defenders by Randy
Blackburn, grandson of Joe and Jennifer Sparacino.
Randy's squad signed the flag before sending it back.
A touching tribute was inscribed in the corner- "In memory of
P.F.C. Butler killed in action Feb. 2007." P.F.C. Butler was to go
on leave five days before being killed. He was to see his newborn
child for the first time. He was the fourth K.I.A. in the Company.
Dixie Defenders supports our troops in Iraq by sending
"Patriotic Packages" named to any soldier. These packages are
given to soldiers who get little or no mail from home.
The majority of these soldiers come from Georgia and other
southern states.
We are indeed proud of the 57th M.P. Company and all our
soldiers who fight terrorism overseas so it will not be fought in
America.
May God Bless America and our soldiers defending our
country.

I Was "Drugged"
This story was sent to one of our readers who came by to share
it with us...

The other day, someone at a store in our town read that a
Methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farmhouse in the
adjoining county and he asked me a rhetorical question. "Why
didn't we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?"
I replied, I had a drug problem when I was young:
I was drug to church on Sunday mornings. I was drug to
church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions
and community socials no matter the weather. I was drug by my
ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I was also drug to the
woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie brought home a
bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher
or the preacher, or if I didn't put forth my best effort in everything
that was asked of me. I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my
mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a profanity. I was drug
out to pull weeds in mom's garden and flower bed and cockleburs
out of dad's fields. I was drug to the homes of family, friends, and
neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the
yard, repair the clothesline, or chop some firewood; and, if my
mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this
kindness, she would have drug me back to the woodshed.
Those drugs are still in my veins and they affect my behavior in
everything I- do, say, or think. They are stronger than cocaine,
crack, or heroin; and if today's children had this kind of drug;
problem, America would be a better place
God bless the parents who drugged us!

"HABITAT"
Contd. from page 1A
Saturday for a photo session at
the..future site which is located
on Highway 351 North in Old
Town.
"We're really excited,"
said homeowner Connie
Brosam.
She and her four children
wpre all smiles as they admired
the recently cleared lot where
their new home will soon
stand. The land was cleared by
the late Woody Lovelace.
Due to the generosity of
other volunteers such as
Lovelace and donations, the
home will be built at no cost to
Brosam. Habitat for Humanity
only requires that homeowners
invest "sweat equity" into the
construction of their home by
putting in many hours of their
own personal time and'labor.
The houses are then sold to the
homeowner at no profit and
financed through affordable,
no-interest mortgages.
It has not been determined
when construction on the four
bedroom home will begin,
according to Susan Bartch, but

"UNDERDAWGS"
Contd. from page 1A
The Underdawgs' Band was
founded in 1994 by
bassist/vocalist John
Underwood, Pinellas County
native who moved to the tri-
county area as a young
teenager. John's entry into the
music business was playing
Bluegrass guitar and upright
bass with his dad Oscar. Prior
to the Underdawgs, John
worked with David Clay and
fronted the band South Street
prior to that.
Levy County's Billy
Powers was the first current
band member to join the group
in 1995. Billy plays lead guitar
and also provides lead and
harmony vocals. His unique
guitar style lends an originality
that is a big part of the band's
distinctive sound. Besides the
Underdawgs, Billy has worked
with Final Chapter as well as
the Sweetwater Band.
On second lead guitar
and vocals is Bronson resident
Curtis Frazier. Originally a
drummer before taking up the
guitar, Curtis has been with the
group since 1999. Well versed
in many musical styles, he
played drums with the band
Milestone, guitar with original
music band Rockslide, and
guitar with metal band
Reckless.
Karen Powers grew up
iq Erie, PA and started singing
at, age nine. Before moving to
Florida in 1980 she worked
with the Storm Band. Some of
the. Florida groups she has,
performed with include the
Many Hats Band from
Melbourne and the 50 Caliber
Blues Band out of
Jacksonville. Whether she's
vocalizing a tender ballad, or
belting out a powerful Blues
rocker, Karen has a great
dynamic style one conducive
to.,whatever genre of tune she
chooses. Karen moved to
Chiefland in 1998 and started
singing with the Underdawgs
Band in 2000. She and Billy
were married shortly
thereafter. Karen was recently
seen as "Carol" in Sandra Rose
Zehner's "Midnight at the
Starlight", the original musical
cofmiedy performed at the Dixie
County Cultural Center in
February.
Mike Lewis rounds out
it' band on drums. This
eIwcomer to the group has
*Been with the band "only" four
,'ears. Mike has played music
since e high school and, like
'I1,hn. comes from a family
*with a Bluegrass tradition.
Oxer the years this Levy
GCounty resident has worked
;ith many of the area's top
:groups including Night Train,
, puthern Sounds, and
bulletproof And like
;Underwood, he too is a veteran
'e the David Clay Band.


they are hoping to begin as
soon as possible.
"We still need a lot of
building materials, money and
volunteers," Bartch said.
If anyone would like to
make a donation, they can send
the donation to Habitat for
Humanity of Suwannee
Valley, P.O. Box 1506,
Bronson, Fla., 32621. Anyone
interested in volunteering can
contact Ken Erickson,
volunteer coordinator, at 352-
463-3759.

"FCAT"
Contd. from page 1A
Scoring at or above a 3.5. AES
was the only school in the
district to see significant
improvement from last year's
scores.
Another component of the
writing scores comes from a
multiple choice test that is
scored and leveled in levels 1
to 5, with 5 being the highest.
The state considers a level 3
(scale score of 300) or above
as proficient.
Starting with 10th-graders
next year, those students must
score a level 3 or above to
receive a diploma.
According to Durham, our
elementary schools scored
above the state average on the,
multiple choice test, however,
our middle and high school


students scored below the state
average, therefore, "our
primary focus next year will be
remediation."
Durham added,
"Especially with our high
school students because we
have to get those kids their
diplomas."

"WATER"
Contd. from page 1A
Requirements. Engineers are
also considering the option of
taking the 18-inch water line
that goes to the prison out of
service. Water sits in the line
for several days, which
encourages the formation of
TTHM and acids. Engineers
found that flushing the line
would help alleviate some of
the TTHM and acid build-up;
however the magnitude of
water would be great and could
cause some flooding in the
flushing area. Taking the 18-
inch line out of service would
be a better possibility and
would not affect the prison
because it was installed when
the prison was expected to
expand, according to
engineers.
Although the city originally
planned to utilize Reverse
Osmosis Membranes (RO),
which would not only remove
contaminants from the water


but also soften the water, it is
not an option right now,
Cassidy said. He explained that
timing and budgeting were key
factors in the city's decision to
not go with RO at this present
time, "but, we'll keep it as an
option."


"GRANT"
Contd. from page IA
audio signals, like the kind you
hear when talking on the
phone, and turning them into
digital data that can be
transmitted over the Internet.
Gant said VoIP is becoming a
popular way to communicate
because basically, it's a free
way to make phone calls,
including long-distance.
However, because of the
nature of VoIP, emergency
calls can be difficult for
dispatchers to handle because
they can not locate the caller
geographically unless the
caller is able to provide that
information to the dispatcher.
Following the lead of cell
phone service providers,
several VoIP carriers are
implementing a technical
work-around. For instance, one
large VoIP carrier requires the
registration of the physical
address where the VoIP line
will be used. When you dial
the emergency number for


your county, they will route it
to the appropriate local system.
Gant said the new upgraded
system will be able to receive
those routed calls from any
VoIP carriers supplying that
information.
The 911 equipment
upgrades are expected to be
completed within six to eight
months.

"INDICTMENT"

wounds and injuries. They then
dumped his body in the
Suwannee River. His body was
discovered found floating the
next morning at Turner Point
Landing. Dixie County
Sheriff's Office deputies
located the two suspects later
that same day and made an
arrest.
Schrider was arrested on
charges of driving under the
influence, driving while
license suspended/revoked,
premeditated murder,
aggravated battery and
tampering with evidence. It
was later discovered that he
had two outstanding warrants
in Licking County, Ohio,
where he is a suspect in an
attempted murder case.
Bouchard was arrested on
charges of premeditated
murder, aggravated battery and
tampering with evidence.

The Word Made Flesh
The Name Of The Beast
Continued from last week.
SOne of the worst things we have
..ever done is build up images in
,,our thinking, or set up images that
,would represent God almighty.
.The Second Commandment would
,teach us better than that if we
would listen to it. Most of the
,church groups of today place a
name on the front of their building
and usually the name they put
There is the highlight of what they
Believe. The Holy Scriptures give
Stwo names the church is biblically
,called by. Only one of these is
-given for the soul of man to cling
,to. The Book of Acts tells us
plainly, "...for there is none other
*name under heaven given among
"men, whereby we must be save."
I'This speaking' of the name Jesus.
,Peter knew this when he made,
Their statement. This does not say,
.CAN be saved, it says "MUST" be
saved. "Whereby we must be
saved." (Acts 4:12) There is no
other way to be saved. When you
.-look in the Book of Revelations
- this BEAST coming up out of the
SEA speaking blasphemies
(Revelation 13:5), then you find
out blasphemies are actually
pointing to religions of all kinds.
We must face this fact. Looking
at religious names, the Church of
'Jesus Christ and the Church of
God, are the only two names given
in the Holy Scriptures that the
church as borne. We are not
eliminating the bride of Christ, the
body of Christ, or the Bridegroom.
The names for the church all point
to the name of Jesus Christ. We
know it is a scriptural fact you
have to go through Jesus Chfist to
get into the body of people
(church) called the bride, the
church. Which is right? The
Church of Jesus Christ, or the
Church of God? They are both
right, but you have to put them in
their respective places. We must
always remember, God is creator -
no image whatsoever. Jesus is the
image of God the express image
of Him in human form. Jesus
Christ must be accepted now
inside the temple (body) of man
and woman. He will have to come
into the human race and REVEAL
HIMSELF, AND MANIFEST
HIMSELF, or the reality of Him
will never be known. In Jesus is
the REAL TRUTH and you can't
find it anywhere also. Jesus is
alive in me and I am not talking
about a man. I am talking about
the SPIRIT of the SON of God.
The last man Adam was made a
quickening spirit (read 1
Corinthians 15:45). The Jesus
Christ the earth has looked for the
come is making Himself know in
the presence of His angel. (Read
Revelation 22:16) I know this
angel is here. I know he is
manifesting himself and working
with the chosen people of God
today. Calling out the CALLED
OUT, if you please. Continued...

Lydia Baptist Church News
We thank the Lord for another glorious Sunday to worship Him
and praise His holy name. How blessed we are to live in beautiful
Dixie County.
We were delighted to see Ms; Myrtle Futch in Sunday school
and church, after her recent surgery. She attributes her speedy
recovery to the Lord's love, and she thanked us all for our prayers.
SMs. Elaine Hines presented an imperative lesson in children's
church: Before you cast a stone at someone else, look first to see if
your name is written on it!
.Some of our Sunday school ladies performed a skit to jolt
everyone into inviting friends and relatives to attend our Sunday
school! The Lord must have blessed it in advance, because we had
48 people in Sunday school! We hope to have twice that number
soon! Please come! Our inspiring teachers provide lessons from
The Word that will reward and help your everyday life. Men's,
ladies and children's classes all begin at 9:45 a.m.
Pastor Wayne Allen's message, beginning with Exodus 3: 4&5,
c autioned us to enter the house of God with the proper attitude.
His house is holy ground. Don't come to church to be entertained,
come to worship Him! Don't sit back and expect a dramatic
"show" from God! You must put your heart into it and make the
effort to absorb the Holy Spirit. His is always there, you must look
for blessings, don't expect him to point them out to you! It is not
just the evangelist's job to provide revival, it is our responsibility
to instill and maintain revival in our church. God will open the
:door for you if you slow down and listen to the "still, small voice".
:It may not be the door YOU want, but it will be the RIGHT door!
We invite everyone in the community to our breakfast on this
coming Sunday, May'6h at 9:00 a.m. We'll have loads of delicious
*home-cooked sausage, eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits, and coffee &
tea.
Our vacation Bible school will be the last week of June.
Remember, at Lydia everybody is somebody and Christ is
everything.

We are having a busy and exciting year! The Lord has really
blessed each of us. Pastor David Downing and Brother John
Orlando just returned early (3:00 a.m.) Sunday morning the 22nd,
from the Cayman Islands. They have been on a week-long mission
trip for Revival in the Caymans. They reported upon their return
that the Lord had prepared the place and the minds of the people,
through fervent prayer of the church, and there were 15 professioris
of faith.
While Brother David was away, Brother B.J. Fore, and Brother
Jim Barbas filled in. Wednesday the 25th Brother Jim Barbas
continued the 2nd part of a three-part study in prayer, titled
PRAYER IS OUR LIFELINE TO GOD, The Christian and the
Church.
AWANA reported having 39 children present. What a
wonderful training and preparation tool for our young children!
Each class is currently doing adopt-a-club. This is a fund raising
project to help adopt and support another AWANA in another
country! Young missionaries at work! This Wednesday during
AWANA we had two children profess Jesus Christ as their Savior
and pray the sinners prayer! What a blessing. Thanks go out to
our AWANA Leaders and Teachers, we pray for their continued
dedication and hard work.

Baptist, come and see what at the excitement is about!
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3 Heaven And Hell
Continued from last week... The word, as to the letter, is written by.
appearances and correspondences, and that thus there is s spiritual sense
contained in each expression, in which sense truth appears in its light,
while the sense of the letter is in shade. Lest therefore the member of the'
New Church should wander, like those of the old, in the shade of the
literal sense of the Word, particularly on the subjects of heaven and hell,
and of a life after death, and on this of the coming of the Lord, it has.
pleased the Lord to open the sight of my spirit, and thus to let me into the
spiritual world, permitting me to converse with spirit and angels, who
have departed out of the natural world, but now they live as a man in a
substantial body, and in a far more perfect state, if they go among the
blessed, than when they lived before in a material body. To prevent man
from plunging deeper into this false opinion of the'destruction of the
visible heaven and the habitable earth, and thereby of the spiritual world,
in consequence of that ignorance which has given rise to so much
naturalism and atheism from spreading, as mortification in limb, through
mans external mind, whence his speech originates, just as they have
already begun to affect and take root in the interior rational mind,
especially among the learned, I have been enjoined by the Lord to tell
some of the various circumstances of what I have seen and heard
concerning Heaven and Hell, and the Last Judgment. Man has two states
of thought, external and internal. He is in the external state in the natural
world, and the internal state in the spiritual. These two states of thought
form a one with the good, but not with the wicked. The nature and quality
of a man's internal state are seldom discoverable in the world, because he
learns from infancy to be moral and rational, and loves to appear-so; but!in
the spiritual world its quality is clearly discovered, for he is then a spirit,
and the spirit is the internal man. I have been permitted to be in ihe
spiritual world, and they're to behold the nature and quality of the internal
man in people. In the spiritual world the Jews are less aware than any
other people of their being in the spiritual world the Jews are less aware
than any other people of their being in the spiritual world, believing
themselves to be still living in the natural world, and because they are
altogether external men, and do not at all think of religion from an interior
principle. Next week. Love you.

How Can The Socal Security Disablity Specialist 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 induded 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.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2007


Casey Ragsdale Promoted


Caleb, Sheila, Casey, and Dylan Ragsdale


On March 30th, at a ceremony in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, CW4 William Casey Ragsdale was
promoted to Chief Warrant Officer Five in the United States Army. Sheila, Caleb, and Dylan Ragsdale
along with Casey's parents, Jim and Sherry Ragsdale attended the ceremony. Sheila's mother, Patsy
Highsmith also traveled to Fort Campbell and attended the event. Presiding over the ceremony was
Col. Kevin W. Mangum, Commander of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. After a few
words from Col. Mangum, Jim and Sherry Ragsdale came forward to perform the actual "pinning of
the rank" during the promotion.
Casey is currently the Regiment Flight Standardization Officer, and has worked in such capacity
for the past three years. With this promotion comes a change of jobs for Casey. This summer he will
begin testing and flying the new MH-60M Special Operations Blackhawk helicopter. During Casey's
short speech he thanked family and friends for attending. Casey spoke of a question that was asked of
him in 1992 when he applied for a position with the 160th. LTC Doug Brown (now General Doug
Brown), Commander of United States Special Operations Command asked him; "What are you going
to do for your country and the 160th". Casey replied, "I want to be a Flight Lead, so I can lead the best
Army aviation unit into combat. I want to be the Regiment Standardization Officer so I can effect
change in our operations as needed, and I want to be promoted to the highest rank possible within the
Warrant Officer Corp". Casey has met all three of these goals and will continue to serve our great
country in the United States Army.
CW5 Ragsdale is a veteran of three wars, Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm (1990-91),
Operation Enduring Freedom (2001-present), and Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-present). In the year
of 2000, Casey was selected as the United States Army Aviator of the year.
Casey's proud parents are Jim.and Sherry Ragsdale and his proud grandmother is Velma Lovelace,
all of Old Town. Sheila is the daughter of Bobby Pinner and Patsy Highsmith of Cross City. Casey,
Sheila and their boys Caleb (16) and Dylan (13) reside in Clarksville, TN.

The LCCC Students and Graduation 2007
By Charles W. Hall, Lake City Community College president
As hard as it is to believe, Lake City Community College's
.. (LCCC) graduation ceremonies will be held next Friday, May 4
"?.'T .. in the Conference Center (Howard Gymnasium) on the LCCC
campus. While this is a time for celebrating the accomplishments
':!. of our students, it is also an important time to reflect on our
students and the paths pursued to reach their goals. Therefore, I
i ," ., contacted Logan Cross, LCCC director of research, to obtain
statistics to share in this article.
; To begin with, it is important to point out that last year the
college served over 7,500 students. These statistics include
students taking credit and noncredit, courses on either a full or
part-time basis. Though the largest percentage of our students is
female there is a consistent increase in the number of males
entering the college. Survey results indicate that most students
enter the college because of its convenient location, academic
reputation, and its affordability. While at LCCC, most of.:our
students pursue associate in arts degrees that transfer to tiler
Charles W. Hall colleges and universities. A sizeable percentage of students
pursue an associate in science degree which focuses on technical training for a specific occupatiori.-An
equally important segment of our students choose to pursue a certificate that equips them to enreika
particular profession. Though the remainder of our students may be undecided about a career path, they do
see the value in obtaining a college education.
Upon graduating from the college, many of our graduates are successful in their subsequent academic
and/or career pursuits. More specifically, LCCC graduates who transfer to colleges or universities tend to be
very successful. Their grade point average at the receiving institutions compares very favorably to -the
freshman and sophomores who have already been attending that university. The job placement percentage
for occupational graduates typically exceeds 84 percent. Also of interest to many students is that the starting
salary for occupational program graduates is approximately $30,000 with a certificate and approximately
$40,000 for graduates receiving an associate in science or an associate in applied science degree. -
The foregoing underscores the importance of the upcoming graduation ceremony. At that time, we will be
honoring the students who successfully completed their degree program since last year's ceremony. Mi4re
specifically, 488 students graduated during the fall term and 331 students applied for graduation this slriiig.
Thus, the number of students who will graduate from the college this year will probably exceed 800. This is
LCCC's largest graduating class to date.
Needless to say, Lake City Community College is very proud of the superior teaching and learning
environment provided by its faculty and staff. The success of our current and past students provides
evidence that LCCC is fulfilling its mission of providing a high-quality education at an affordable price. -:
With all of this in mind, I encourage you to come to the graduation ceremonies and congratulate our
graduates. If you plan on attending, it is important that you be aware of changes in the schedule of events.
This year the nurses' pinning and LCCC commencement ceremonies will occur on the same day. The
nurses'pinning ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. followed by the commencement ceremony at 5 p.m. Both
events will be held in the Conference Center (Howard Gymnasium). Between the two events, cookies and
lemonade will be served in the Pine Square Pavilion. Consolidating these two events into one afternoon
allows more nursing students to attend the general commencement exercises and conserves college
resources. The sequence of events should provide plenty of time for taking pictures and socializing with
fellow students, friends, and families.
I hope you will join me in congratulating these graduates and their families for beginning a course of
study and seeing it through to completion. They are to be commended for deciding to better themselves,
pursuing a higher standard of living, and contributing to the betterment of the community.
Congratulations LCCC graduates and families, we send you our best wishes.
Hall is the president of Lake City Community College. He can be reached via e-mail lat
hallc@lakecitycc.edu or by calling (386) 754-4200.



THANK YOU!

Dear SCI (Sanchez, Chesser, Inc.)


I would like to thank you for purchasing my hog in
the fair. I am thankful for the fact that there are
people like you who support us in events like this. I
hope your business continues to prosper. I appreciate
you buying my hog.


Thanks, Kevin Curie

Buddy Martin Joins The Gator

Country Team!


Buddy Martin with his Emmy
Award for The NFL Today on CBS


GatorCountry.com is proud to announce that Buddy Martin,
whose award-winning columns and books have delighted Gator fans
for more than five decades, will be bringing his considerable
experience and unique perspectives to Gator Country;
Martin is considered by many to be the definitive source on
Florida football history and one of the great story-tellers of the Gator
Nation's rise as a force in college athletics since World War II.
Martin's columns on the Florida Gators begin in May and will feature a variety of topics -'news,
commentaries, historical flashbacks, blogs and humor.
"We're absolutely thrilled to have such an accomplished and widely acclaimed writer of Buddy
Martin's stature join us at Gator Country," said Gator Country publisher Raymond Hines. "I know our
fans will be just as delighted as we are to add a big star to our team of excellent writers. With Buddy,
our coverage of Florida Gator sports has become even more unparalleled."
"I've known Buddy for almost 40 years and his knowledge of the Florida Gators is extraordinary,"'
said Gator Country Managing Editor Franz Beard. "I've had the privilege of working with Buddy as a
writer and co-hosting a radio show with him so I know what a treat it's going to be for our readers.
Buddy Martin's love affair with covering the Florida Gators began in the Bob Woodruff days and the
more he's written about them over the years, the better he's gotten. We feel really fortunate to add him
to our team."
Martin says he is looking forward to the challenge.
"1 love the Internet and the immediate feedback we get," he said. "There is no doubt that the future
of journalism is in cyberspace. The fact that I get to work with so many of my friends at Gator Country
and cover the team I have followed since I was a boy growing up in Ocala is a no-brainer for me."
Martin will also write a regular column for Gator Country's new glossy magazine.
With the publication of his last book, "The Boys From Old Florida: Inside Gator Nation," Buddy
recently passed the 1-million word mark on Gator football and basketball. He has covered Florida for
11 different newspapers, and news organizations: The Ocala Star-Banner, Gainesville Sun,
Jacksonville Journal, Florida Today, Gannett News Service, ESPN, The St. Petersburg Times, New
York Daily News, Denver Post, Florida Times-Union and Charlotte Sun, where he still serves as the
paper's editor. In 2004, the Sun was one of three national finalists for the Pulitzer for breaking news on
Hurricane Charley.
Buddy has won over 100 awards for writing, editing and producing, including an Emmy for his
work as an editorial consultant for CBS on The NFL Today show. He is writing his eighth book, which
will be published in 2008.
Martin's current book, "The Boys From Old Florida: Inside Gator Nation" is being updated with a
national championship chapter and will be re-released for the fall of 2007.
Martin is a product of the UF Journalism School and former Florida Alligator columnist; while in
college, he served summer internships at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and United Press
International. Buddy is a long-time radio talk show host and commentator. He was co-founder and cc:-
owner of Florida Sports Talk (ESPN/WMOP Ocala and WGGG Gainesville).
He is also co-creator and co-founder of "The Sports Journalism Summit" at The Poynter Institute

Letter To The

Editor
Biblical Poem: "Tell it like
it is."
If I be lifted up, I'll draw
all men to me. With all the
War's that's going on, there's
no lifting up I can see.
For if we were living for
Him, like we should have
been,
There'd be no wars today,
and they would be our friend.
So give yourself a checkup,
and you'll know, were not
where we need to be.
If we'd do our Bible
reading, and our prayer's that
we, need you see,


iu we would see a,
difference, to come across our,
land.
And we wouldn't be losing
our loved one's, to wars in
other lands.
Your sleeping on the Godly:
subject and it has made you;
way too corrupt.
And if you don't change it;
soon, our country's going to be;
lost.
You'll be under Egyptian
bondage, and your playing it
by man's not God's rules, then
eternity, you've lost.
So get a grip America,
before it's too late, before He
split's the eastern sky, the
folk's it'll be too late.
Amen

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2007


LOWER SUWANNEE

NATIONAL WILDLIFE
REFUGE PREPARES FOR
HIGH WILDFIRE DANGER
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service who manages the 52,000 acre
Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge in Dixie and Levy
Counties is announcing the temporary closure of a few seldom
used public access roads in order to reduce the possibility of
wildfire ignitions. These road closures are needed not only to
reduce the risk -of wildfire on refuge lands, but also to protect
neighboring homes and properties.
The central Florida region remains in an extended drought, that
has resulted in a high wildfire danger. We anticipate conditions
will remain unusually dry for the next month or two. Wildfire
season normally peaks in north Florida in May and June with the
spring dry season before the onset of regular summer
thunderstorms. This year it has been drier than usual. Several fires
have already occurred in the area and no significant rainfall is'
anticipated for the next month or more.
Refuge staff are taking other preparations as well, including
adjusting staff schedules and coverage, and repositioning
equipment to areas of higher concern. Earlier this year, refuge
staff conducted prescribed burns on over 3,000 acres. Prescribed
burns are a key component of the refuge's habitat management
program. However, these burns also reduce forest fuel loads and,
consequently, significantly reduce the threat of wildfires and help
to protect wildlife habitats and surrounding lands.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal Federal
agency responsible for conserving, .protecting and enhancing fish,
wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of
the American people. The Service manages the 95-million-acre
National Wildlife Refuge System, which encompasses 547 national
wildlife refuges, thousands of small wetlands and other special
management areas. It also operates 69 national fish hatcheries, 64
fishery resources offices and 81 ecological services field stations.
The agency enforces federal wildlife laws, administers the
Endangered Species Act, manages migratory bird populations,
restores nationally significant fisheries, conserves and restores
wildlife habitat such as wetlands, and helps foreign and Native
American tribal governments with their conservation efforts. It
also oversees the Federal Assistance program, which distributes
hundreds of millions of dollars in excise taxes on fishing and
hunting equipment to state fish and wildlife agencies.


DIXIE COUNTY
HUMANE SOCIETY
Pamela Swanson is the president and founder of the Dixie
County Humane Society which has been in existence now for the
past year. Previous to starting the Humane Society here, Pamela

County and Alachua County for ;:
5 years. She has fostered over a -". .'' '
hundred dogs to date and .
numerous cats along with "'i
finding homes for them. ."
The Dixie County Humane /
Society was founded due to the

work.


As a non-profit organization

Pamela deserves many thanks for the huge amount of time and
energy she devotes to helping so many animals who desperately
need help.
We had a successful day this past Saturday at the "Horseshoe

American Revolution Award
Cadet Ricky Templet is a student in the Dixie County High
School Army JROTC; he was recently awarded the Bronze Medal
from the Gainesville chapter of the Sons of the American
Revolution (SAR). This award is presented to JROTC cadets who
are selected for having a high degree of merit with respect to
leadership qualities, military bearing and overall .. .. Ilki-. Cadet
Templet was selected by his Commanding Officer, LTC David
Elder and ISG Phil Snyder. The SAR ROTC Medal is approved
by the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and the Air Force; it is
authorized for wear on the uniform by members of these services.
The DCHS JROTC completed a very successful year. Several
cadets were recognized with awards from other civic, military and
veteran organizations Tuesday night at their banquet. The JROTC
boosters, the Torch Club, and cadets honored 1SG Snyder for his
outstanding service and building the unit. He is retiring after seven
years of service with DCHS JROTC..
The SAR is open to men who can demonstrate that an ancestor
provided active service in the cause of American independence

18 or older who would enjoy participation in our chapter but do not
have a proven lineage to a Revolutionary War ancestor are eligible
for associate membership. We help all members search for
Revolutionary War ancestors.
Goals of the 118 year old patriotic organization include
promoting patriotism, and building respect for American history
and the founding fathers. The SAR also supports veterans in VA
hospitals, the Boy Scouts and ROTC cadets. Awards and
scholarships are also given to students who win oration, essay and
poster contests on patriotic topics. One of the SAR's newest
programs is to select an American history teacher and send the
winner to the Freedoms Foundation Teacher Workshop in Valley
Forge, PA.
The Gainesville chapter meets at the Paramount Resort &

This Mother's Day,
Show Someone You Love :: W :"
How Much You Care :
By: Louis B. Sullivan '
Social Security District Manager, Gainesville, Florida
On Mother's Day, we celebrate the special people in our .;..
lives. There are a number of ways you can show someone you A
love how much you care. So consider doing something for them
that can really make a difference. Show them how to get extra .
.help with their Medicare prescription drug costs.
The high cost of medicine can be a burden on your loved
ones who have limited income and resources. Extra help -
available through Social Security can pay part of their monthly
premiums, annual deductibles and prescription co-payments. The
extra help could be worth an average of $3,700 per year.
To figure out if they're eligible, Social Security needs to
know your loved ones' income and the value of their savings,
investments and real estate (other than the home they live in). To
qualify for the extra help, your loved one must be receiving
Medicare and have:
S Income limited to $15,315 for an individual or $20,535
for a married couple living together. Even if their annual income
is higher, your loved ones still may be able to get some help with 5
monthly premiums, annual deductibles and prescription co-
payments. Income may be higher if they or their spouse:
-Support other family members who live with them;
-Have earnings from work; or ll
-Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and
S Resources limited to $11,710 for an individual or
$23,410 for a married couple living together. Resources include
such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count Se d n
their house and car as resources. *
Social Security has an easy-to-use online application that a
anyone family members, friends and caregivers can
complete. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov. To apply
by phone or get an application, call Social Security at 1-800-772-
:1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Help
with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA-1020). Or go S t f

complete the Health Science Program and qualify for the Certified Nursing Assistant Certification.
The students would also like to thank the teachers at Anderson Elementary, Old Town
Elementary and Steinhatchee Elementary for allowing the C.N.A. students to work in their
classrooms assisting young students in fine motor skills. It has been a true learning experience for
the students.
The students will be graduating from Dixie County High School on May 18, 2007.
Congratulations to some of the best and most dedicated students at Dixie County High School and
best wishes in their college endeavors.

From The Superintendent's Desk:

Teacher Appreciation Week

May 6-12, 2007

Teacher and StalIf Appreciation Week comes each year in May.
During this week we have Ihe opportunity to honor 0or teachers
and staff by saying "Thank You" lor lheir conimitmlen to seeing
that children are offered educational opportunities that will lead to
being successful in life. When we look back in time and review
our educational experience, it is easy to remember several key
school employees that had a dramatic impact on our lives and
future successes we would enjoy.
Education across our state and nation is in a continual state of
reform and change. Teachers are under tremendous pressure to get
their students prepared to meet the ever changing rigorIous
standards set in place by our legislature each year. The status of
their schools, their students, their salaries, and their self-esteem is
tied to today's accountability. We must not only let them know
how much we appreciate them, but also let the community know it
as well.
Education is on the lips of every politician this year. It is
considered a priceless commodity, but those who provide that
commodity are often overlooked and under recognized for the
valuable contribution they make to our society. Despite the
increasing demands placed on their time and talents, teachers still
manage to take the children sent to their classes each day and
educate them to be the future leaders of tomorrow.
During National Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, May 6-
'12, 2007, we pause to recognize and thank teachers that make all
impact on our lives. I know teachers and staff would enjoy a note,
e-mail or telephone call from you expressing your gratitude for
their commitment in seeing that all children receive the educational
opportunities that they need.


Springhouse Quilter's News

Members of Springhouse always enjoy the workshops that the
Program Committee plans each month. The March workshop was
one example of a fun-time for 15 ladies who participated in the
Workshop presented by Jan Litzinger. They all made a convenient
and useful thread holder to store their many spools of thread.
The workshop for April was led by Sandra Mount and she
attempted to help 15 ladies learn to tat. This is a wonderful way to
make beautiful trim for an heirloom quilt. Sandra was able to
help the ladies learn the basic stitches and gave them many hints
and ideas on how to make and use the tatted pieces. She also
showed some of the beautiful tatted pieces that she has made.
S Most of the Springhouse workshops are usually quilting
programs so it is interesting to see what members of the guild do
when they are not quilting. Even with these other interests,
Springhouse members always find time to make quilts to share
with their family and friends.
The 2007 raffle quilt, a sampler in shades of blue, is now being
hand quilted by members of Springhouse Quilters. Tickets are
available from any member of Springhouse. The quilt will be
given away during the October quilt show.
The next regular meeting of Springhouse will be on May 8.
.beginning at 9:00 AM. For information on Springhouse Quilters,
:please contact Jan Litzinger, 463-3971. or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

The North Central Florida
Idol contest was held Saturday
evening at the Columbia High
School auditorium in Lake City.
Maddie Kelley, a senior from
Dixie County High School
competed against other students
from a 13 county area of north
central Florida.
Maddie placed fourth in the
vocal competition. She was

was held in this area and we would invite all students to participate
at their school and then advance to this regional competition" said
promoter Ronnie Collins. "Next year we will be able to award
some cash prizes to our winners, but all the proceeds from ticket
sales will benefit the youth of our community and enable us to
continue to find outstanding teen talent in our area, "he added.
Collins has ties to Dixie County and attended area schools as a
child. He also has family here in Cross City and is the uncle of our
own Nick Collins. "I hold Dixie County dear to my heart and look
forward to visiting every chance I get. Dixie County always has
excellent, talented young people who could make entertainment a
career." he added.
Maddie is the daughter of John and Michelle Kelley and will
continue her education at Jacksonville University this fall.

Central Florida (PPNCF) are
very excited to present the
Heart Gallery of Mid-Florida.
What is a Heart Gallery? It
is a photo exhibit of adoptable
children whose hearts' desire
is to be a part of a forever
family. The goal is to raise
overall awareness of the foster
care adoption program and
recruit prospective parents for
these children. "We are so
excited about the Heart
Gallery," states Jennifer
Anchors, Executive Director of


Mandy Cannon and Brittany Jones used the skills they learned in Betty
Davidson's health science class by administering first aid to an injured
young man.
Using the skills they learned in their health science course, two
Dixie County High School students recently administered first aid
to a young man injured on a boogie board.
"Because of my training in health science and first aid, I was
able to help the young man," said Brittany Jones, 17.
Jones and fellow student Mandy Cannon, 17, attended a Health
Occupations Students of America State Leadership Conference in
Daytona a few weeks ago to compete against other students in a
first aid competition. They never expected to use those same skills
they would be demonstrating in competition in a real-life
experience.
Jones explained that on one of their free days during the
conference they went to the beach and witnessed a young man
injure his foot while riding a boogie board. Acting fast, they ran to
him and carried him to their towel. They then ran and got ice to
help reduce the swelling, rinsed the cut with clean water, and also
began elevating his foot knowing it would help slow the
bleeding-all first aid protocol they learned in their health science
class.
Eventually a member from the Beach Patrol was located and
took over, but the students had already, successfully done
everything any skilled emergency technician would have done as
well.
"It was exciting," Cannon said. "It definitely got us prepared
for the competition."
Great job Brittany and Mandy for thinking fast and helping a
young man in need!


Children's Home Society.
"This gives us a tremendous
opportunity to increase
awareness of the children that
are trying so desperately to
find their forever families."
This moving display of
children will be exhibited at
the Dixie County Chamber of
Commerce at 99 NE 210
Avenue from May 1 thru June
1, 2007.. Guests can see the
children's photos, read about
their likes and dislikes and find
out more about the adoption
process.
Last year, Children's Home
Society placed over 1,100
children with their forever
families. As the oldest and


largest statewide children's
advocacy agency, Children's
Home Society has been
providing programs to build
and strengthen families since;
1902.
