Kim Hank's Ford pickup was damaged during Tropical Storm Barry
b'when a large oak tree fell over and onto the truck. She was surprised
1hat the tree fell because it was a young, healthy tree-it just goes to
show that anything can happen during a storm or hurricane.
By Briar Keathley
, Although the rain was desperately needed, Tropical Storm
Barry's sweep through Dixie County on the first day of hurricane
season last Friday acted more as a cautious reminder that hurricane
preparedness is vital-early preparation can help minimize injury
and property damage.
"We really want to encourage citizens to prepare because of the
storm season outlook," said Dixie County Emergency Services
Director Tim Alexander.
Weather experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration are projecting a 75-percent chance that the Atlantic
hurricane season, which runs through November 30, will be above
normal this year. At least 13 to 17 named storms are predicted to
form, with seven to 10 of them reaching hurricane strength, of
which three to five could possibly become major hurricanes
(Category 3, 4, or 5).
Because there will not be a lot of time or notice before one of
those storms or hurricane potentially hits our area, planning and
preparing now is important, Alexander said. Often people wait
until the very last minute to rush out and try to buy supplies, food,,
water and fuel, but that can be hectic and risky especially if stores
sell out of those items, which can and does happen, he explained.
Purchasing those items in advance will make a huge difference in
the way your family weathers a hurricane.
To encourage and assist Floridians to adequately prepare for
the 2007 hurricane season, a Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax
Holiday is in effect until June 12. The holiday allows purchases of
certain items used in preparation for a hurricane disaster to be
exempt from sales taxes. These items include flashlights, batteries,
and portable radios, as well as more permanent devices such as
storm shutters and portable generators.
"We definitely want people to take advantage of the Hurricane
Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday, stock up on those items and have
a family plan," Alexander said.
To help make a family plan unique to your family size and
needs, Alexander suggested using the questionnaire at
www.floridadisaster.org.
According to Dixie County's Division Chief of Emergency
Management Scott Garner, in the event a hurricane hits our area,
citizens should plan to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours
because it could possibly take 72 hours before emergency services
can provide assistance.
I -"We will try to get supplies to residents as quick as we can but
our first priority is life safety and security," he said.


.,-, ,

1,ast year's mild Atlantic hurricane season may have kept .us all happy,
fbut it's no reason to let your guard down. Just look back at the 2004
&hurricane season for example-one of the deadliest and most costly
'hurricane seasons on record. Florida was hit by four major hurricanes
resulting in at least 3,132 deaths and roughly $42 billion in damage.
- Having a three-day supply of non-perishable food items and
'Water for each family member, including pets, is going to be
crucial if a hurricane disaster occurs. In addition to stocking up on
food and water, families should have cash, prescription drugs and
special supplies for family members with special needs, including
babies, small children and elders on hand.
"Right now is the time to go ahead and start getting those
prescription drugs filled," Garner urged. "Have cash on hand now
too, because if we lose power the ATMs won't work."
Families should also have a list of emergency contacts readily
available. Include phone numbers of the Dixie County Sheriff's
Office, Dixie County Emergency Services, utility service

Boyd Praises Additional Funding For 2005
Man Fatally Hurricane Recovery
-r I T $10.9 million headed to cities and counties in North Florida


Injured In

Accident
A Suwannee man died last
Tuesday evening after
sustaining fatal injuries in an
auto accident occurring on
County Road 349. The man,
Donald Lee Eanes, 54, was
pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report, at
approximately 10:50 p.m.
Eanes was driving a 1997
Dodge pickup truck
southbound on CR 349 at a
high rate of speed. He
attempted to pass a vehicle
driven by Michael Chad
Means, 38, also of Suwannee,
and struck the left rear of
Means' vehicle with the right
front of his pickup. Means'
vehicle was redirected off the
west shoulder and hit a fence
before coming to a final rest
inside the fence line.
After hitting Means'
vehicle, Eanes' pickup also
traveled off the west shoulder
and began to rotate clockwise,
hitting a fence and several
fence posts with its front. The
pickup then proceeded to hit
two pine trees. Upon vehicle
impact with the trees, Eanes
was ejected from the pickup
and came to a rest in the dirt
on the left side of the pickup.
He was pinned beneath the left
front wheel. At this time, the
pickup caught fire, consuming
itself and Eanes in flames.
Suwannee Fire Department
responded to the scene and
extinguished the fire.
Means sustained minor
injuries in the accident.


WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) today announced that Dixie
County will receive an additional $84,186 for 2005 hurricane recovery. The cities and counties in
Florida's 2nd Congressional District will receive a total of $10.9 million in federal funding.
Last month, Congress passed an Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill, which requires the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to pay the entire cost of hurricane recovery
projects tied to the 2005 storm season in Florida. Prior to this law passing, FEMA had been paying
75 percent of the costs tied to Hurricanes Dennis, Katrina, and Rita and 90 percent of the costs of
Hurricane Wilma. The remaining portion was split between the state and local governments.
"This funding is great news for Dixie County and North Florida, and the area will certainly benefit
from this federal support," said Congressman Boyd. "I am proud of the work that Congress did to
bring this needed funding back to Florida to further aid in our recovery from the 2005 storm season.
As we prepare for another hurricane season, I will continue working with the County Emergency
Management Centers and state and local officials so that the people of Florida will have the
necessary information to not only prepare for a storm, but recover from any damage it may cause."
Statewide, this law will bring an additional $386.million to Florida and impacts nearly 14,000
recovery projects, which include repairs to public buildings, debris removal, and overtime by city or
county employees during a disaster. Included in the $386 million is nearly $66 million-in additional
funds provided to state government agencies.
FEMA's Florida Long-Term Recovery will work with the state of Florida so that the funds will be
available to local governments. "This is a huge effort, but it is our top priority to get these additional
funds to the state right away. We pledge to get this done within 30 days," said Scott R. Morris;
Director of FEMA's Florida Long-Term Recovery.
FEMA's Public Assistance Program is one way federal disaster assistance is delivered to states;
local governments, and to certain private non-profit organizations. These funds allow them tq
respond to, recover from, and mitigate the impact of disasters.

Amnesty by any other name...
It happened in 1954, again in 1986, and now it's happening
mone more time. The problem, that is.
; In '54, that problem consisted of approximately 1.2 million
illegal immigrants, most of whom came from Mexico, thus the
designation, "Operation Wetback," as coined by President Dwight
ID Eisenhower. Ike mobilized the Immigration and Naturalization
Service (INS) to deal with the problem, with the cooperation of
state and local governments along the border.
It worked. Within a year, most of the illegals had been rounded
up and deported, or had gone back of their own volition before the
law caught up with them. There were no "cities of refuge" where
the police were under orders not to turn them over to the INS, there
were no mass demonstrations and no one was listening to bogus
claims that the American Southwest was "stolen" from Mexico.
The use of the term, "wetback," was acceptable, and the word
"'amnesty" was not even in the vocabulary of those dealing with the
situation.

' By the mid-1980's, the problem had crept back in. Only this
time, the figure was estimated at three million, more than double
-what it had been 30 years earlier. President Ronald Reagan went
Along with an amnesty bill passed by Congress which allowed
*many of those who were here illegally to remain. To balance this
.accommodation, there was to be strict enforcement and border
:control.
- Fast forward to the present, when pundits are citing a 12
2tnillion figure, which doesn't say much about border security when
:the number of illegals can quadruple in 20 years. And 12 million is
a: low-end figure. It could very well be double that.
; To make matters worse, we now have local governments that
.won't cooperate with the INS, federal prosecutors who send border
:patrol agents to prison for getting too rough with Mexican drug
'smugglers, riots, desecration of the American flag, bi-lingual
education, welfare, free health care, and even Social Security
benefits for people in this country illegally.
: Think things are getting just a bit out of control? Well, here's
*What our "leaders" plan to do about it:
SGrant "permanent guest worker" status to any illegal who got
heree before the first of this year. (There's a lot more, but it pretty
'well hinges on this.)
SBut it's not amnesty, or so our fearless leaders tell us. They can
'-start by explaining how we're supposed to tell if an illegal alien got
;iere before or after January 1, 2007.

The solution to the problem is simple: Enforce the laws that are
^already on the books. We don't need a complex new bill tailored to
:meet diverse partisan and economic preferences. Just lock up
;and/or deport the illegals. It can't all be done in one week, but it
can be done, and it can be done consistent with existing laws.
All right, but what do we do about the "anchor babies"-those
::born to women who are here illegally? The Constitution says that
anyone born in this country is a citizen, and that gives the parents


-something of a foothold. Any chance of getting the 14th
-Amendment repealed? Not likely.
However, we could stop issuing birth certificates and Social
;Security numbers to babies whose mothers aren't citizens, and that
wouldd include even "guest workers" who were here legally. A
:citizen because you were born here? Prove it.
Meanwhile, discontinue all social benefits for illegals, including
Free medical care, bi-lingual education for their kids, and Social
;Security benefits. Removing these incentives would further
:discourage illegal border-crossing and would in fact provoke a lot
;.of illegals to head back to Mexico on their own.
-'. Sure, we're a nation of immigrants, but the rest of us (or at least
-Our ancestors) came here legally. Is it asking too much to insist
"-that others who seek the benefits our country has to offer do the
same?


Letter To The

Editor
STA TE MANDA TES
TAX INCREASE
By Michael Sittig
Prepare to be surprised.
The State budget signed by
the Governor on Thursday,
mandates that local property
taxes go up, not down. Yes,
property taxes were just
increased by your State
leaders. Yes, the same ones
who are returning next month
to Tallahassee for the sole
purpose of lowering your
property taxes just raised them.
In the freshly minted state
budget there is a requirement
that the local property taxes
used to pay for schools are to
be increased by 7.44 percent.
In so doing, the state was able
to avoid paying nearly $550
million for schools. Instead of
finding that money from their
own $71 billion budget, which
is in addition to the $7 billion
in set aside for reserves, they
passed the burden down to
property owners and increased
their local property taxes.
Many people may not
realize that almost half of the
property tax dollars we pay go
to our local school board to
fund K-12 education. Funding
our schools, according to our
state constitution, is "the
paramount duty of the state"
and as such, we would expect
that the state would fund it.
Instead of meeting this
challenge of funding our
schools, the state has been
shifting the burden down to
local governments and has
been forcing the increase in
local property taxes. For
example, eight years ago, the
state of Florida paid more than
60% of the total amount
needed to fund local schools.
But during that time the state
began slowly shifting the
burden down to local school
boards. Today, the state pays
less than half (45%) and
requires that the rest comes
from local property taxes. The
net effect is that local property
taxes go up to pay for schools.
Said a diffeattt wayduririg-
the same eight year, period, the
state has increased its share by
less than a percent but have
required local property taxes to
nearly double to make up the
difference. Every Legislator
who voted for the State budget
voted for this.
For the record, we
understand and sympathize
with the need to increase
education funding. Costs of
building schools, providing
hurricane insurance, paying
teachers, and even paying for
the health care of school
employees have all increased
significantly. These are real
costs to provide real services to
real people. Great cities make
for a Great State and you do
not have Great cities without
Great schools. You do not
have Great schools without
proper funding.
But, just like the school and
state governments, city
governments have also faced
significant cost increases for
the services we provide.
Salaries and benefits for police
and fire workers (even the new
ones mandated by the State
this year without funding), the
costs of providing expanded
water and sewer services,
ambulances, homeless shelters,
storm water holding ponds, to
name just a few, have all
escalated in their costs to build
and operate. We all must
recognize that cities must
purchase expensive property
insurance and expensive gas
needed for fire trucks, garbage
trucks, and police cars. We are
working hard, and are finding
even more cost-effective ways,
to provide these needed
services. In fact, most cities


try to meet these rising costs
without raising the State-
designed property tax because
it is so unfair. The past ten
years show average annual
growth of municipal spending
was only 6.9%.
The point is; we all support
a fair property tax and new
homeowners and businesses
really deserve relief, but how
can state lawmakers mandate
increases in local property
taxes while at the same time
issuing a clarion call for
reductions? We would ask

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 2007


Legionnaires News

This writing is being done in
absentia. I am presently in
Chicago on family business and
have missed the American Legion
4th District meeting in Crystal
River. I am looking forward to
getting some news from our post
delegation from this meeting. If all
went as planned, Jim Ramos of
Post 149 should have been elected
as the new District Commander.
Our local posts in the tri-county
area know him very well and look
forward to an even better year in
2008 under his leadership.
While being away I have had
some time to reflect on some
things that set the American
Legion apart from other service
organizations. While I support a
number of other veterans groups I
have found that the American
Legion truly supports the ideals of
taking care of our own. Whether
working with our disabled
veterans, lobbying for our active
'duty and reserve forces, promoting
and supporting education
,programs for our youth or
representing our veterans in the
disability claims process, the
American Legion is always in the
forefront to make things better for
those who have served in uniform.
I am sure that these are just a few
of the reasons that the American
Legion has become the largest
veterans' organization in the
world. That being said, I still
must remind our veterans eligible
for membership that they are
needed to play important roles in
our local posts. There is an old
adage that we should remember;
.strength in numbers. What makes
us strong is not just paying our
dues but active participation in our
programs. Many times when I hear
this topic come up I have heard
comments that suggest that many
other organizations have the same
problems with obtaining active
membership as we do. While that
may very well be true, I suggest
that possibly we may have gotten
a little lax about our regular
participation.
Here's something to think
about; recently Post 91 mailed out
letters to the membership asking
for support in our recent election
process. We received a response
of less than 20% of these mail
outs. What we also learned was
that nearly 192 of our members
live right here in our tri-county
-area and yet we regularly only get
About 12 members to our
meetings. Not only does this
suggest the obvious attendance


problem but it also suggests that
many who are able to attend and
participate seem to either have
forgotten the purpose of this great
organization or just have more
important things to do than
support our legion programs.
While this may seem a little harsh,
we can't deny the facts. Post 91
has elected new leadership for the
upcoming year and they will need
our support. So, let's put on our
legion uniforms and start making
it a priority to support this
organization that does so much for
us. It simply will not work without
you. For every one who attends
and helps in one of our programs,
it helps lighten the burden of those
who are presently struggling to do
these programs. A shared task
means that the workload per
person becomes lighter
exponentially by the number
sharing it. So, for example, a
program to produce an event such
as a scholarship program that is
currently being done by one
person can be shared by two, three
or more persons. Not only does
the workload per person get
lighter, the end product can be
achieved with greater results. A
more familiar term to us is
TEAMWORK. So, let me invite
you to come out to our meetings
and help a fellow legionnaire in
supporting one of our legion
programs this year. We can have a
good time doing it and accomplish
a very important function in
support of our posts.
Please keep our troops and
their families in your prayers.
Post 91 meets the third Thursday
of the month at 7 pm in Trenton.
Post 149 meets the first Tuesday
of the month at 7 pm in Newberry.
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY.
Major Stroupe, Service Officer
Post 91

Dixie District Schools

Asbestos Awareness
Federal Regulations (AHERA, 40 CFR 763) require that all
Dixie District School facilities be inspected for asbestos containing
materials (ACBM). The inspections are presented in an Asbestos
Management Plan. The Management Plan indicates location, type
and condition of all ACBM in the Dixie County School District as
well as recommended response actions for these materials. f
The Management Plan was generated by Hal Kimbrell, of
Environmental Services in February 1989. A copy of the
Management Plan was submitted to the State Asbestos coordinator
in February 1989. The AHERA regulations require that parent,
Teacher and Employee Organizations be notified annually of the
availability of the Management Plan.
A copy of the Management Plan is on file for your review at
the School Administrative Office at Support Services located on
the Dixie County High School campus. Copies of the individual
building inspection reports are on file in each school's
administrative office.
The AHERA regulations require that the School District be re-
inspected every three years and the School Board has complied
with this law. The three-year inspection reports are available for
your review at each of the schools and at Support Services.
Finally, the AHERA regulations require that we inform you of
any abatement project (scheduled response action) we have
conducted and any upcoming projects. No activities are currently
planned.
If you have questions concerning these matters please do not
hesitate to contact Mark Rains at 498-6150.

providers, family contacts and any other important numbers you
might need.
While making hurricane preparedness plans, those living in
substandard housing or along the coastline need to make a personal
evacuation plan, Garner said.
"If there's any doubt in your mind if you need to evacuate,
heed the warning and go ahead and evacuate," he said.
If and when a shelter needs to be opened, Old Town
Elementary School will be opened first. Ruth Rains Middle School
will be opened if OTE reaches its 85-percent capacity. Any special
needs evacuees are encouraged to fill out the special needs form,
which can be found on the emergency services web site, prior to
arriving at OTE, the special needs shelter.
As you take precautionary measures to protect yourself,
remember to protect your property as well. Once the statewide
burn ban is lifted, Garner said citizens should begin to remove yard
debris and trim tree limbs away from houses and parking areas.
Secure outside possessions, such as lawn furniture, grills and trash
cans to prevent them from being blown away or causing damage to
your home. Boat owners should store boats out of the water on
land or on a lift to protect them from dangerous storm surges.
Over the next six months as the 2007 hurricane season is
underway, Dixie County Emergency Services employees will be
out in the community talking with residents and handing out
informative brochures and flyers to help them prepare for the
worst, Alexander said. He explained that a hurricane disaster could
happen tomorrow, or in November toward the end of the season.
Taking the necessary steps now to get prepared rather than later is
the best thing you can do to protect yourself and your property.
'Take the storm season seriously," Alexander said. "Don't wait
until the last minute to make your plans."
For more information about disaster preparedness visit
www.floridadisaster.org or www.dixieemergency.com. Also, if
you would like to become a Red Cross volunteer and volunteer
during a hurricane disaster call 352-376-4669.

VBS Fiesta Planned

At Old Town Methodist Church
Old town United Methodist Church invites Children to Fiesta:
Where Kids are Fired Up About Jesus!
"This year our church is jumping with excitement as we have a
,Fiesta," says Pastor Carl Rainear. "Our Fiesta program will
provide fun, memorable Bible-learning activities for kids of all
ages. Each day kids will sing catchy songs, play team-building
games, nibble Maraca Munchies, take on a "Daily Challenge" to
let Jesus' love grow into their homes, experience electrifying Bible
adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of
God's word, and create Bible Point Crafts they'll take home and
play with all summer long."
"Fiesta is an exciting way for kids to learn more about Jesus'
love," says Pastor Carl. "Kids will join nearly a million children in
North America and take part in a hands-on mission project that
will reach needy children in Latin American countries. Each day
concludes a Fiesta Finale a celebration that gets everyone
involved in living what they have learned. Family members and
friends are encouraged to join us daily for this special time at 8:30
p.m. We hope fiesta will lift up Jesus' love in our community."
Fiesta begins on June 18m and continues through June 22nd.

The Word Made Flesh
The Name Of The Beast
Continued from last week.
NOTICE! This BEAST that we
are talking about is preaching his
,cunning ways and religious lies so
-as to deceive the VERY ELECT if
,it were possible. This BEAST is
'working in the human race today.
-Ve are talking the TRUTH,
(precept upon precept; line upon
line, here a little and there a little).
.(Read Isaiah 28:10) To reveal the
;'FOUR BEASTS" that appear in
the THRONE OF HEAVEN, and
roundabout the throne of Heaven
read Rev. 4:6-8. Remember, this
BEAST is not a natural thing! This
'BEAST is a spiritual power Satan
-has moved into the earth (people).
-This BEAST we are talking about
is showing itself in all the
'religious fields of the human race;
*especially the religious side of the
,people who "CLAIM THE NAME
OF JESUS CHRIST." They
,minister what "HE WAS"
;according to their interpretation of
-the scriptures, and what "HE
;WILL BE" to come, according to
-their vision of knowledge. These
teachers and ministers do not
,know HIM IN PRESENT TENSE
revelation. They cannot present
'Him as He is now. (Read
,Galatians 1:11, 12, 15 and 16.)
,We are showing by the TRUTH of
'the scriptures the four beasts; (in
:Rev 4:6-8) the Red Dragon
appearing in Heaven; (in kev
"12:3-4) the BEAST coming up out
:of the sea and the BEAST coming
,up out of the earth (people) in
.Rev. 13: 11-18. Finally, we see
the BEAST the harlot woman is
sitting upon (scarlet-colored).
,This BEAST carries all the names
,of blasphemy. (Rev. 17: 3) We
.are approaching the Name of the
:Beast and why God's people must
'come out from under the BEAST
"'MARK." The BEAST
'"NUMBER," and finally the
8BEAST "NAME." Never let it be
said we have said anything against
-the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST or
moved against this name in any
way. I have not said one word
against the Holy Ghost in my
'entire life. The MARK OF THE.
B13EAST in the "CARNAL"
CHANNEL that came unto Adam
and Eve in the Garden when they
were in the transgression. Their
MINDS became subject to the
words of Satan as well as the
words of God. Here is where the
CARNAL MARK began to show
itself. Here is where Satan got his
first connection through God's
man and woman. From here we
start with the CARNAL MIND.
This is the spiritual "Mark" that
followed man all the way to the
coming of Jesus Christ. The thing
man needs to recognize most is
himself his fleshly beastly
'nature. This is why man is called

Steinhatchee First Baptist

Church News
This past weekend, 35 of our young people ages 6 years to 12 years
were "locked up" at First Baptist of Steinhatchee. The group attended the
Charity Baptist Church of Perry and First Baptist of Steinhatchee. This
was an attendance reward. They earned this fun-filled lock-up and lock
in"! Each of these precious young folks had promised God and committed
to their church they would attend 5 services within the six weeks. Their all
night "lock in" began at 6:00 p.m., Friday and let-out time was 8:00 a.m.,
Saturday morning. They had "bear grub", cooked by our own Bear John
Berg. They brought their sleeping bags and empty tummies. WOW...can
that age eat or what? They enjoyed water balloons and whipped cream
fights, singing, games, sharing God's Word, eating and yakking all night.
One of the games was called Faith Factor, there were three levels to pass.
It started with 6 kids, it ended with a tie! Katie Cannon from Charity
Baptist and Frank Cooper from our church! Congratulations to both of
you! Everyone enjoyed watching the "blind pudding game too. But only 6
participated!! There were 15 helpers and chaperones! A special thanks go
to our over-night chaperones; Jeff and Yvette Cooper, Kelly and Glenn
Crews, Whitney Blanton. All the helpers were a blessing too, they were:
Eric Green. Whitney Blanton, Glenn and Kelly Crews, Pastor John
Edmunston, Sarah and Pastor Leon, Jeff and Yvette Cooper, Steven and
Amy Reed, young Leon Holden, Donnie Morrow, Timothy Holden and
Chris Holden. We appreciate each of you. Did all of you mark your
calendars for June 11h" -15"' for our "Rescue Zone at Vacation Bible
School, beginning at 6:00 p.m.. till 8:30 p.m.. We will look for your
children, come rain or shine!
We enjoyed The Apple Tree song by brother Dixie Southerland.
He will be 75 years "young" this week. He is not getting older.....he is
"aged to perfection!" He is a walking praise report, due to numerous


health problems.
We enjoyed a special, sung by Libby Gray and Shelby Morrow. We
had a surprise visit from Don Curtis, who is running for State Senate
District 33. He did our closing prayer during the a.m. service!! Tiffany
Morrow is home from college and shared another inspiring poem with us
called "One Life"! Thank you Tiffany for sharing your God given talent
of poetry with all of us! All of our youth enjoyed a summer ice cream
social after church Sunday night! It was de-li-ci-ous, thanks to all
the helpers!
We are praising God for sending tropical storm Barry! The rain was so
badly needed not only in Florida but other states as well! All the farmers,
citrus, various crops, spring flowers and plants, birds and all God's
creatures of the earth were thirsty. But Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us : To
everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
Maybe you are looking for some blessed rain in your life! Are you dry,
dusty and thirsty? If so come visit with us at First Baptist. The Lord will
shower you with His almighty forgiveness and love. He will bless you
with rainbows and his beautiful sunshine. God never promised us a
smooth easy path through life, but He did promise to walk with us,
through all the tough times, unhappy experiences, the rocky roads we
sometime choose to take and the tragedies we have to bear! Our God will
be there taking every step with us and yes sometimes carrying us when we
are to weak to walk that path. right? Lots of love, hugs and
smiles!

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Heaven And Hell Rev. 21:3
Continued from last week. The learned of the present time reason
,;differently as respects the influx of soul into the body, and of the body into
Sthe soul, and on this subject are divided between these three opinions,
1 whether the influx be of the soul into the body, which they call occasional,
',as being excited by the occasional incidence of objects upon the bodily
senses; or whether influx be of the body into the soul, which they call
physical, because object strike upon the senses, and from them are
;t conveyed to the soul; or whether influx be simultaneous and instantaneous
into the body and soul at the same time, which they call a pre-established
harmony. Nevertheless the favorers of each of these opinions confine
their notions of influx within the sphere of nature, some supposing the
soul to be a particle or drop of ether; some that it is a globule or spark of
heat and light; Some that it is a kind of en's concealed in the brain.
According to each of these suppositions they speak of the soul as
something spiritual, but then by spiritual they mean a something natural in
a state of the greatest purity; for knowing nothing about the spiritual
world, and its influx into the natural, they rest within the sphere of nature
ascending and descending, and soaring aloft therein, like eagles in the
atmosphere. When yet groveling as they do in nature and never rising
above it, they are like the inhabitants of an island in the sea, who do not
know there is any other country than their own; or they are like fish in a
river, which do riot know that above the water there is such an element as
air.- On this account, when they hear of a world distinct from their own
inhabited by angels and spirit, and that all influx into men and also the
interior influx into trees, is from the world, they stand astonished, as if
they heard some visionary narrations about specter's, or the idle tales of
astrologers. Except the philosophers, the inhabitants of the world where I
,am in the body think and talk of no other kind of influx than that of wine
into glasses, or of meat and drink into the stomach, and of taste into
tongue, and possible also of an influx of air into the lungs, and the like;
But when they are told they of influx of the spiritual world into the natural
they immediately say, Be it so; love you. Continued next week.

Local Youth Awarded
Ford/FFA Scholarship


Steinhatchee Students
Awards Presented


American Legion Post 383 News


Principal Sylvia Ivey presents Jason Schroeder with a trophy
and savings bond for being Steinhatchee School's top A.R.
reader.


Isaac Hardee
Isaac Hardee, a 2007 graduate of Chiefland High School has
been awarded $1000 scholarship by White Ford Mercury and Ford
Motor Company.
Isaac's parents are Chris and Fran Hardee of Chiefland. "Isaac
is excited for the opportunity to do what he's always dreamed of,
pursue a college degree and play baseball" said Mrs. Hardee.
"Work. hard in class, get done what I could during school
hours and balance my time" were keys to his academic standing
said Isaac. His study skills and determination has awarded him the
recognition of co-salutatorian with a GPA of 3.98 and, Isaac has
received an academic scholarship to Berry College in Rome, GA.
His plans include majoring in Pre-Vet and Veterinary Sciences.
"I'm looking forward to playing baseball and seeing a new area"
stated Isaac. In the meantime, his responsibilities to the Chiefland
Sr. FFA do not end with graduation. There still remains a State
Convention where Isaac will receive a State Degree gold pin.
Isaac said his most memorable experiences in FFA, aside from
"learning patience because animals are stubborn is interacting
with people of various backgrounds from all over the state." Isaac
has held several FFA offices and cites learning those leadership
skills to be of value, regardless of career choice.
In looking back over his years with FFA, "it wasn't always about
winning but doing your best, learning while doing and the
experiences you take with you" stated Mr. Hardee. This speaks to
the FFA mission to make a positive difference in the lives of
students by developing their potential for premier leadership,
personal growth and career success through agricultural
education.
"The national FFA organization continues to support the
growth and education of America's future leaders. The Built Ford
Tough Trucks scholarship program is one aspect of the million
dollar commitment to the National FFA Foundation by Ford
Trucks" stated Don Barrett of White Ford Mercury in Chiefland,
FL.
Ford has supported the National FFA Foundation since the
first F-Series truck was introduced in 1948 and has sponsored the
Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program since 1997. Ford
knows the value of hard work, and believes that hard work should
be rewarded.
"I can appreciate the lessons in hard work, responsibility,
communication, patience, and the dedication of caring for an FFA
project from beginning to end. The Built Ford Tough Trucks/FFA

The Buddy Show
b., Buddy Martin
Orlando had more

Magic than Gators
For a while, it
seemed like a happy
ending to a Grimm's
fairy tale, but the
magical 366-day ride '..
for Gator fans crash ,,"k "'"
landed. And in the end, .C.
Orlando's Magic
proved more
compelling to Donovan
than Gainesville's
magic.
Billy Donovan is gone .There is an undercurrent of anger
running through the "Gator Nation" today and everybody is
looking for a scapegoat. How could this have happened?
Most Gator fans feel there would have been no press conference
today announcing Billy Donovan as the new coach of the Orlando
Magic if somebody hadn't dropped the ball.
What did happen? When Donovan came back from his vacation
and told Jeremy Foley he wanted to be the Gator coach, it
sounded almost like his way of committing to an oral contract.
Florida wanted him, he wanted Florida. If the document was,
indeed, was already prepared as we have been led to believe, why
wasn't it signed? Or was it signed and never executed'?
We are left to wonder if the final approval wasn't hung up
somewhere in the University of Florida's bureaucratic archives
and perhaps died in committee. Either way, it appears that
Donovan wasn't afforded the respect and appreciation that he
deserved. Failure on Florida's end to wrap him up was a terrible
mistake. Who blinked first and why was there even a hesitation
on either party's part?
Critics of President Bernie Machen will wonder why he wasn't
sitting down at the table, consummating the contract with his red-
hot basketball coach instead of trying to sell a pipedream of a
national playoff system for college football to his SEC
constituents in Destin. After all, everybody else in the country
wanted Donovan, so where was the sense of urgency on the part
of the Gators?
Critics of Donovan will accuse him of money-mongering, of
working both side of the street, and call him a hypocrite for
manipulating a better deal for himself. Many of them have short
memories about the honor and glory he has brought the University
of Florida. It has never been about money as far as Donovan was
concerned, so those who misguided few who feel he was lurea
away by the Magic's filthy lucre don't really know him at all.

MDA Seeks Medical Staff
Tallahassee, FL -- The Muscular Dystrophy
Association is seai: thing for summer camp
medical staff, including registered nurses,
physicians and/or paramedics, who are looking
for a rewarding and memorable experience.
Volunteer medical staff is needed to help young
people with. neuromuscular diseases enjoy a
fun-filled MDA summer camp from July 6
through July 13, 2007 at Cape San Blas, in Port
St. Joe, FL.
Medical staff must be licensed within the
state of Florida and be able to lift and care for a
young person between the ages of 6 and 21.
Medical staff will be required to dispense daily
medications as well as assist in any emergency
situations.
"MDA summer camp is the event that our
kids think about year-round," said MDA
Regional Coordinator Lisa Heil. "For one week
out of the year, they get to be in an environment
where having a neuromuscular disease is the
norm, not the exception. They have the chance
to make friendships and memories that will last
a lifetime."
Heil noted that medical staff and
volunteers often say camp is a magical and

The meeting will be held at

Cross City, Florida.
If a person decides to appeal

We'll probably never really know why Florida's two-time
national championship coach went to bed Wednesday night
thinking hlie was going to remain as basketball coach of thec Florida
Gators, then woke up and changed his mind. Ask any of
Donovan's close friends and they will tell you they were shocked
at the decision. They, too, arc wondering what cataclysmic event
caused this.
My sources informed me last week that Donovan's deal was put
on hold by bureaucrats in the state' university system who
apparently were balking at the $3 million-plus price tag and even
though I felt the UF was flirting with danger, I honestly felt the
deal would get done. But I wrote this last week:
"Until the contract is signed, Billy Donovan remains a free
agent. That is not a good thing for the University of Florida or
the state university system. Period."
As an old warhorse of the business world once told me, "a deal
is not a deal until the contract has been signed'and the check has
cleared."
A huge shock reverberates through the "Gator Nation" today
over the story which was first reported by the Orlando Sentinel,
quoting an unnamed source from the Magic. Then it was
confirmed by. GatorCountry.com through a source close to the
Donovan family. By late Thursday, press conferences had been
scheduled and the Magic were already issuing statements. Finally,
it became official.
Foley, caught by surprise, scurried from the SEC meetings in
Destin for a late meeting with his coach. And Gator loyalists were
holding on to the sliver of hope that when Donovan arose Friday
morning, he would renege on the Magic deal. Too little too late.
Billy was gone.
Sure, Foley and Machen will find an excellent coach, most
likely former Donovan aide Anthony Grant. But these two will
also be remembered by some as the duo who also let Steve
Spurrier and Billy Donovan get away --- the two greatest coaches
in school history. Unfair perhaps, but true.
This has been a tumultuous decade for Gator athletics as the
roller coaster dipped into despair following the loss of Spurrier,
stayed flat during Ron Zook's era and gradually climbed back to
the top with the ascent of the basketball program. As late as 2004
when Zook was fired, there was a split in the "Gator Nation"
which has only begun to heal these past two years with the
success of Urban Meyer.
Perhaps there will be a return to the mountain someday, but
nothing ever like we have just experienced: The most incredible
run in college sports history a national championship sandwich
with a football title in the middle and basketball titles on each end.
The era officially ends today when Donovan takes the podium
in Orlando. Something went amiss in the two weeks between May
17 and May 31. Either Billy Donovan is totally fickle, or
somebody at a high level at the University of Florida just made
the most costly turnover in the school's basketball history.

VA Opening 38 New Clinics


World-Class Health Care Brought Closer to More Veterans
WASHINGTON To bring the world-class health care of the
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) closer to where veterans live,
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson today announced
plans to open 38 new community-based clinics in 22 states.
"VA is committed to providing world-class health care to the men
and women who have served this nation," Nicholson said. "These
new clinics will bring VA's top-notch care closer to the veterans
who have earned it."
With 153 hospitals and about 700 community-based clinics,
VA operates the largest integrated health care system in the
country. VA's health care budget of more than $34 billion this year
will provide health care to about 5.5 million people during.nearly
800,000 hospitalizations and 60 million outpatient visits.
"Community-based medicine is better medicine," said Dr. Michael
Kussman, VA's Acting Under Secretary for Health. "It makes
preventative care easier for patients, helps doctors have closer
relationships with their patients and permits easier follow-ups for
people with chronic problems." The new facilities, called
community-based outpatient clinics, or CBOCs, will become
operational by October 2008. Local VA officials will keep
communities and their veterans informed of milestones in the
creation of the new CBOCs. A list of the new community clinics
follows:
VA's Proposed Sites for New Outpatient Clinics Alabama -

Putnam, Georgia -- Camden and Stockbridge, Idaho -- North

Springhouse Quilter's News


.-\ ,v-" '.- ,.- *. .
.gailtf .

Loretta Lyell, a 2007 new member to Springhouse Quilters, is shown
getting her beginner sampler quilt ready for hand quilting.
The annual summer 4-H summer camp got off to a good start
on Monday, June 4. Elaine Faison, who recently retired from the
County Extension Office and previously worked with the 4-H
program, will be in charge of the 4-H sewing-quilting camp. The
first session, with 8 young, excited, prospective quilters began
,heir week of learning to quilt by choosing fabric and getting
:reacquainted with their sewing machines. Ms. Elaine will be
helping them get their first large quilt started. The first group of
4-H members were invited to this camp as advanced sewing-
fluilters having attended 2 or more years of 4-H Sewing Camp.
lThe quilts they are planning to make this year will be more
'difficult than the quilting projects they learned in previous years.
Two other weeks of 4-H camp will follow and will be for
beginners and second year members.
,,: There is a lot of work that goes into making a quilt. The final
,stage, quilting either by hand or machine, requires some
::preparation after the top is assembled. The quilt top must be
!,sandwiched" together with a back and the batting and then
l~basted to hold the three pieces together until the quilting is
completed. Loretta Lyell has completed her quilt top and has
,:now "sandwiched" her quilt. She will be quilting by hand. There
'will be many stitches that Loretta will complete before she can
show off her completed quilt.
- Springhouse Quilters will be meeting again on June 12, 9:30
AM, at the Springhouse Quilter's building on Highway 26, west
of Trenton. For information about Springhouse Quilters, contact
Jan Litzinger, 463-3971, or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

SVP To Present "The Importance

in 3 acts, by Oscar Wilde. THE STORY: Two young gentlemen
living in 1890s England have taken to bending the truth in order
to put some excitement into their lives. Jack lives in the country
with his pretty ward Cecily. But in the city, he goes by the name
of Ernest and is in love with Gwendolyn Fairfax. Miss Fairfax's
cousin is Algernon, who, also using the name Ernest, goes to the
country and falls in love with Jack's ward Cecily. When they all
come together, we have two men who claim to be "Ernest" and
aren't, and two girls who are in love with men named "Ernest"
who aren't.... "earnest". And, even if the girls could find it in
their hearts to forgive the lies, there are still the guardians
standing in the way of permission to marry.
Performances will be held two consecutive weekends May
31st through June 10th, Thursdays through Saturdays, beginning
at 8:00 p.m. with Saturday AND Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. <

Thank You CLASS OF 2007
Graduates & Parents
I am so proud of you as a class and as individuals. You are
a very unique group of fine young ladies and men. You have
made me proud. You were the first class in a very long time that
did not leave your marks on the school, you didn't do any
damage or toilet paper the school. I am confident that you the
Class of 2007 will be contributing adults and will make Dixie
County, proud.
Thank you for the beautiful plaque and watch that you gave
me at graduation. You have made a major impact on my
life... This will always be very special to me. I will never forget
you.
You have wonderful parents. We could not have made the
last four years without their help. We have had parents to stay
up late at night helping to prepare something that would be
spectacular for you and it worked. We had a beautiful prom last
year, the most original floats every year, a baccalaureate that was
great and the most beautiful graduation. Thanks to you for
making it happen. Your parents have set a wonderful example
for you to follow in their footsteps to help your children in the
future. You are fortunate to have your parents and I hope you
treasure them.
Always put God first in your life and you will succeed. God
blessed us at Prom, Graduation and again on the Senior Trip.
Now let us ask God to help guide you in the future if you are
going to work, military or on to college. I love you...


Sincerely,
Kathryn McInnis
Class of 2007 Sponsor



Staying Connected
(NAPS)-There's no need
to let nagging doubts about
forgetting to do something
spoil your vacation.
While you're on the road,
it's easier than ever to check
in at work or to make sure
your neighbor remembered to
water your plants, because
some interstate travel centers
now offer wireless Internet,
known as Wi-Fi.
It's always a smart idea to
stop frequently while you drive
so you don't get tired.


Before you travel, check
your tires and fuel levels.
Also, check the location of "
travel centers that offer'
online connectivity.
Fortunately, stopping to fill
up on gasoline or get a cold
beverage and a snack can also
provide a chance to catch up
on your e-mails.
,At TravelCenters ofAmerica
(TA), for example, you can set
up an online account and use
any of their 163 locations
nationwide to log in.
To find travel center loca-
tions on your trip and to sign

On May 29th, 2007, the Old Town Chicks Red-Hatters enjoyed
a nice trip to High Springs and had lunch at Trombone Charley's.
We all enjoyed our lunch, desserts, and atmosphere of. the
restaurant and staff of Charley's. We took a lot of pictures and had lots
of friendship and laughs. Afterward some went antique shopping and
hunting an ice cream shop. We missed those who could not be with us
today. Hope to see all of you next month.

Pvt. Robert (Colby) Wilkerson
Pvt. Robert (Colby) Wilkerson graduated from U.S. Army
Basic Training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina on June 1, 2007.
He has accepted a job in military intelligence. He will be stationed
at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center, Fort Huachuca, Arizona for
18 weeks of training.
Colby is the son of Cliff and Brenda Wilkerson, and brother to
Taylor and Wade Wilkerson. He is the grandson of Fred and
Tracey Wilkerson, (and the late June Wilkerson), Ed and Peggy
Jarvis all of Trenton, and Jim and Helen Davis of Gainesville.
Colby is a 2005 graduate of Dixie County High School.



"FCA T" contd. from page 1
Just as some of the older students did not perform as well as the
district would like on the reading portion of the test, some of the
district's fourth and fifth-graders had trouble with the math portion
of the test.
"Next year our focus is going to be math at the elementary
level and reading at the high school level," Durham said. "We are
going to sustain the areas we have done well with and target the
areas we need to improve."
The district plans to use research-based programs proven to
work to help remediate students and improve scores, according to
Bennett. Also, the district plans to continue to address problems
early on when students are younger rather than later when they are
in high school and it's more difficult to remediate them.
"Our ultimate goal is for every kid who comes through Dixie
County High School to get a diploma," Durham said.
Bennett added, "And to have the skills they need to perform as
employees."
In the middle of June, the district is expecting to receive its
school grades, which are issued by the Florida Department of
Education and are based upon the results of the FCAT. Several
factors are taken into account, including: the percentage of students
scoring at or above grade level in reading, math and writing; the
percentage of students making learning gains in reading and math;
and the percentage of low-performing students making learning
gains in reading.
Last year, as a whole, the district was a B district. The hope is
to, at the very least. maintain that letter- grade, as well as the grades
of each individual school this year.

The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its preparation of a
draft permit (copy attached) for the
proposed project as detailed in the
application specified above, for the reasons
stated below.

The applicant, Steinhatchee Water
Association, applied on October 26, 2006 to

for a revision to the current permit. The
permit revision includes construction and
operation of a new 0.095 MGD annual

of the new facility will include installation of
two static screens (145 GPM each); a new
MBR unit which consists of an anoxic
chamber (9,904 gallons), an aeration
chamber (17,554 gallons), and membrane
chamber (11,471 gallons); a chlorine contact
chamber (2,219 gallons); and two
percolation ponds (01.27 acres total
capacity of 0.105 MGD). The facility is
located at latitude 29D 40' 56" N, longitude:
83D 22' 13" W, on 1418 Pine Hill Drive,

other applicable rules of Florida
Administrative Code. The project is not
exempt from permitting procedures. The
Department has determined that a
wastewater permit is required for the
proposed work.

Jacksonville, FL 32356-7590. Comments
from the permit applicant and the persons
listed below must be received within 30 days
of receipt of this intent. Failure to submit
comments or request a public meeting
within this time period shall constitute a
waiver of any right such person may have to
submit comments or request a public
meeting under Rule 62-620.55, Florida
Administrative Code.

The comments or request for a public
meeting must contain the following
information:

(a) The commenter's name, address,

meeting be scheduled including a
statement of the nature of the
issues proposed to be raised at

If a public meeting is scheduled the public
comment period is extended until the close
of the public meeting. However, the

for a public meeting. Therefore, written
comments should be submitted within 30
days of publication of this notice even if a
public meeting is requested.

TAYLOR & DIXIE COUNTIES, FLORIDA

WW407FPS Wastewater Collection
Facilities
May 25, 2007

Chapter 62-503, Florida Adminisfrative
Code (FAC), requires the Fldrida
Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP) to determine whether DEP decisions
pursuant to providing a State Revolving
Fund (SRF) loan for the construction of
wastewater management facilities willhabve
a significant adverse impact on 'the
environment. One such decision is" the
approval of a facilities plan, or portion of
such facilities plan, for projects that may be
financed under the SRF Loan Program. The
DEP, in making this determination, assumes
that all facilities and actions recommended
in the planning documents justifying these
facilities will be implemented, whether or not
SRF loan assistance is used to fund any of
those facilities or actions. This construction
involves water pollution control systems-in
areas where streets have been established,
underground utilities installed, or building
sites that have been excavated. Therefore,
the project qualifies for a Florida Categorical
Exclusion Notification (FCEN).

The proposed project is Phase 1 (Parts A &
B) of a sewer collection system for' tie
communities of Steinhatchee and Jeha.-This
Phase will take a small package plant
offline, eliminate construction of several new
package plants by existing developers, and
serve existing development (marinas etc.)
along the Steinhatchee River. Part A of the
collection system will consist of' the
construction of 2 pump stations,
approximately 9,700 linear feet of .6-ioeh
force main, approximately 7,000 linear feet
of 8-inch force main, and approximately 860
linear feet of 8-inch gravity sewer line. Part
B of the collection system will consist, of the
construction of 2 pump stations,
approximately 5,000 linear feet of 6-inch
force main, and approximately 1,500 linear
feet of 8-inch force main. The Part B force
main will cross the bridge between Jena and
Steinhatchee and connect to the Part. A
portion of the project. Effluent will .be
pumped to the Steinhatchee Wastewater
Treatment Plant No. 1 for treatment.
Additional facilities planning will be required
to address a new centralized wastewater
collection system and the upgrade and
expansion of the Steinhatchee Wastewater
Treatment Plant. The estimated construction
cost for Phase 1 wastewater improvements
is $1,400,000.

The DEP tentatively finds, based. on' a
review of the 'Taylor and Dixie Counties '-
Phase 1 Steinhatchee/Jena Service
Area's Wastewater Facilities Plan",. dated
May 2007, that the described work is.eligible
for categorical exclusion from a detailed
environmental review under the criteria in
Rule 62-503.751(2), FAC. Unless new
information regarding adverse
environmental impacts of the proposed
project is made available to the Department,
State financial assistance may be available
for construction. This Florida Categoridal
Exclusion Notification does not commit any
regulatory agency to issue permits that may
be required for construction of the proposed
project.

This determination may be rescinded if new
information regarding adverse
environmental impacts of the proposed
project is made available to the Department:
In order to be considered, comments must
be submitted within 30 days of the date of
this notice to Jim Plexico, Bureau of Water
Facilities Funding, Department" -.of
Environmental Protection, 2600 Blair Stone
Road, Mail Station #3505, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-2400. Comments also may be
offered by telephone at (850) 245-8367...
The documentation to support this decision
will be available for public inspection in the
County office at the Dixie County
Courthouse in Cross City, Florida and at the
DEP office located at 2600 Blair -Stone

This 5 pounds ounce Rutabaga was dug up by the little guy
pictured above, James Wayne Miller. When asked if he had to
pull it with a tractor he said, "No, a friend helped me dig it
up..." then asked how may pots it took to cook it in, he had no
reply, but instead looked to his Grandma for an answer. The
Rutabaga was harvested out of his Pa's (Alfred Miller) garden
off of County Road 349, outside of Old Town.
