Fun and Fireworks!
BY: Kim Lander

Residents of Dixie
S o County had a wide vari-
ety of events to choose
to attend in celebration
of our nation's inde-
pendence last week.
Our three coastal com-
Smunities, Horseshoe
Beach, Suwannee and
e Steinhatchee all hosted
firework shows and
more for the citizens to
enjoy.The town of
Suwannee was the first
to play host to thou-
sands of people, both from our county and out of town. The Suwannee
Activity Volunteer Association sponsored a fireworks show on Saturday,
June 30. The evening began around 4pm with barbeque and the band
Begs & McKinnley who appeared at the Salt Creek restaurant. A 30-35
minute firework presentation was the highlight of the evening's events,
which included an opening finale, a middle finale and an ending finale.
The Suwannee Activity Volunteer Association consists of 6-8 people and
does several fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for the show.
Tammy Moses of the Suwannee Caf6 and member of the SAVA, said that

Hundreds of boaters, armed with
their scalloping gear have traveled to
the gulf waters in search of the fa-
mous scallop since the season
opened on July 1. Scattered rains
did not deter the crowds from hitting
the waters in record numbers on the
holiday, July 4th. The popular scal-
loping communities of Steinhatchee
and Horseshoe's streets were lined
with empty boat trailer after empty
boat trailer as numerous families cel-
ebrated their 4th in the grassy bot-
toms where the scallop hide.

Paige Proenza, administrative assis-
tant at Sea Hag Marina of Stein-


hatchee reported "the scallop crop is
the best in three to four years." She
said that boaters are finding scallops
both north and South of the Stein-
hatchee River. She says the
weather has been very corporative
and the review she gets from the
scallopers is that most are getting
their limit, which is 2 gallons per per-
son.

Toni at River Haven Marina in Stein-
hatchee reported that the scallops
found south of the river are larger
but are more plentiful North towards
Keaton Beach. She says although

Two storms coming from two different directions

RI to te Pont !
By Jerry Prater

Chutzpa
Perhaps you're familiar with the term, but in case
you're not, chutzpa is a Yiddish idiom that essentially
means unmitigated gall. Hypocrisy also fits into the defini-
tion rather well.
To feign surprise at observing this phenomenon in our
nation's capital would be absurd, particularly to those of
us for whom the political innocence of post-adolescent
liberalism was shattered on the rugged rocks of reality
more than a half century ago.
Perhaps even the best of politicians find occasion to
take liberties with the truth from time to time, so maybe
we should expect no better, the combative nature of poli-
tics in its own way being no more genteel than profes-
sional wrestling. Having dealt in both areas of endeavor, I
S learned long ago not to expect ethical flawlessness from
either.
Every now and then, though, the duplicity found in the
higher echelons of partisan politics is enough to cause
the larva of the common housefly to retch.
Thus it was when several prominent Congressional
Democrats reacted to President Bush's having commuted
the prison sentence of Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Good grief,
you'd think he had just set Sirhan Sirhan free, given him
a gun, a car and directions to Senator Ted Kennedy's res-
idence.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's rush to the forefront of
the fray was to be expected. One is prone to wonder
why, in their entire 233 member majority, House Democ-
rats could come up with no one better more "main-
stream," if you willthan a San Francisco leftie chosen by
the liberal media as heir-apparent to the speaker's
podium well over a year before the 2006 election; but let
us not pursue that matter any further at this point.
In Ms. Pelosi's favor, at least she was never married to
a public official who handed out pardons to criminals like
party favors at a birthday bash. The same cannot be said
for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who happens to be a
leading contender for her party's presidential nomination.
One might think that Ms. Clinton would discreetly elect
to avoid commenting on President Bush's commutation of
SLibby's prison sentence which, incidentally, fell far short
of a full pardon. The quarter-million dollar fine, the super-
vised release and the considerable inconvenience of a
felony conviction remain.
It is true that your neighbor's unpunished sins do not
exonerate your own misconduct, but that is not the issue
so much as the fact that Libby was convicted of lying
about a crime that never actually happened ("outing" a
covert CIA agent) and the question remains as to whether
he was lying or just had a memory lapse concerning
some relevant details. In any event, it was hardly just
cause for a 30 month prison sentence, a huge fine and a
felony rap. The entire situation smacked of an effort to
embarrass the Bush-Cheney administration through a for-
mer associate.
If President Bush was remiss, it was not in commuting
Libby's sentence, but in not granting a full pardon. Per-


haps he thought he could appease his critics by giving
them "half a loaf," but he should know better by now. His
endorsement of halfway measures pertaining to the prob-
lem of illegal immigration, for instance, have hurt his
image far more than a show of resolve would have.
Finally, if Bush is willing to commute the prison sen-
tenceof a high-profile miscreant, he should certainly be
willing to do as much for Jose Compean and Ignacio
Ramos, the two Border Patrol agents who were sent to
prison essentially for failing to use kid gloves in their
treatment of an illegal alien who was caught smuggling
drugs. I have no doubt that this would get him more grief
from his liberal critics, but it would at least let us know
that he's not totally opposed to effective border security.
More important, as in the case with Scooter
Libby, it would be the right thing to do.


GOT GROUPER? NEW WEB

SITE WILL HELP TELL YOU

IF IT'S REAL

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is unveiling a new web site that will help
consumers determine whether the
grouper they buy is the real deal -- or a substitu-
tion.
Grouper is one of Florida's prized seafood
species and Florida
provides more than
q 90
percent of the na-
tion's supply of the
fish. Overall,
Florida's fishermen harvest over 9 million pounds
of seafood annually, with a dockside value of
about $165 million.
Bronson's Bureau of Seafood and Aquacul-
ture Marketing has developed a web site that
provides tips on purchasing grouper. The web site
comes in the wake of a series of cases where
merchants mistakenly or purposely sold cheaper
substitutes to customers without their knowledge.
Because of its limited supply and relatively high
price, Florida grouper has been targeted by un-
scrupulous merchants who want to profit from
its popularity. There have been instances where
restaurants, wholesalers and retailers have substi-
tuted a lesser-value fish and mislabeled it as
grouper.
"Florida law prohibits an establishment from mis-
representing the identity of a seafood product,"
Bronson said. "Selling a cheaper species takes
advantage of consumers and will not be tolerated
in this state."
"I encourage consumers to visit http://www.FL-
Seafood.com and educate themselves
about what to look for when buying grouper,"
Bronson said. "And people who suspect they've
been given a substitute species should report it.
Florida's fishermen have built a reputation for har-
vesting quality seafood. We do not want un-
scrupulous merchants to tarnish that hard-earned
image."

Did You Know......
That the Advocate
can make all of
your copies. .
Including
your color
copies???


We have an epidemic
right now in Dixie
County. Every store or
business in Dixie
County at this time has
one or more fliers
posted of missing dogs.
There are not enough
alligators in four coun-
ties to eat this many
pets.

The largest number of
missing dogs are pit
bulls. Someone is
making loads of money
selling your pit bulls
out-of-country for
breeding purposes or to
pit bull fighting rings.

The next largest group
missing are small pure-
bred lap dogs. Need-
less to say, Chihuahuas
down south in large
cities are selling for
$800-2800.

If a breeder gets your
dog, many of them
crossbreed such as
Peek-a-Poos, Peek-a-
Poms, Puggles (a bea-
gle and a Pug), or they
sell the offspring pup-'
pies as unregistered
purebred puppies.
Since AKC went to DNA
testing a few years ago,
many registered with
CKC where papers are
easier to obtain.

We all need to help one
another. If you see an
animal being picked
even someone who
looks authorized to pick


them up, jot down date
and time, type of ani-
mal, type of vehicle,
and a plate number if
you can get it as well as
a description of that
person. (
r/,
If you have a pet, mi-
crochip that pet. It's
around $30. Micro
chipped pets have been
returned.

You say your pet
doesn't leave your yard.
A lot of these pets miss-
ing have disappeared
from fenced in secure
yards. A camera to ,.
cover your yard areas
available at our largest,
local discount store for
under $30.00.

Also many cultures ;
around the world con-
sider dogs and cats as
food for dinner. Some
of those cultures are
represented now. In'
our county as the popu-
lation grows. -

There are local and
many state laws cover-
ing your pets. Familiar-
ize yourself with these
laws, contact your local
officials, and tell them
you expect them to be
followed.

with quilts, crafts, and
whatever, getting things
done for the Quilt show
in December, the state
fair in February, and
making all kind of things
for friends and family.
Each week its show time
and as these things are
shown, we decide if it
goes to the fair. We
enjoy having visitors
come by and see what
we do on club day. If
you want to learn to quilt
its no problem, all you
have to do is sit down
beside one of our quil-

you. We hope everyone
had a good fourth as I
look back many times
my Grandpa Poley held
our reunion at Fanning

great time we had. So
much has changed but
we still have our re-

bunch of his folks we
have today from his ten

SUWANNEE FL- On a recent
beautiful morning in Dixie, a
rare event occurred: Mr. Wilbur
Long went Saltwater Fishing !
Lest you doubt the rarity of this
happening, it is only the 2nd
time in his 90 Years on this
round Earth! The first such oc-
currence was about 3 Years ago
---- But, Alas, the record of that
event was lost to prosperity(
Film misplaced by developer )
Leaving nothing to chance this
time, I handled the job myself,
with MY Digital Camera, MY
PC, and MY Printer. Now, while
Dad has fished the Ole' Swan-
nee all of h is life, he never did
learn how to Swim -- So, he
mostly stayed where he figured
that he could bottom-crawl out if
he had to He, wisely I think, did
NOT include the Gulf of Mexico
in that category. We departed
from Horseshoe Beach in the
capable hands of Capt. John
Squires, aboard a well-rigged
Pontoon Boat. The party in-
cluded Mr. Wilbur, Jim & Vernon
Long : a Father's Day Gift from


his Sons. The day was Hot, the water temperature had been elevated for some time and the bot-
tom has been stirred-up with all the recent unsettled weather--- So, we really did NOT have high
expectations of a bountiful catch. Oh Boy, were we wrong Mr. Wilbur ( aka Dry-Land Daddy)
was securely seated in a Fighting Chair, suppliedwith all the right gear by Capt. John ( aka Qapt
Redfish ) to land whatever we found. Dad started out with a Spanish Mackrel and a few Grey
and Speckled Trout on the Grassbanks outside. Vernon (the
Cowboy) Long followed with a couple of decent-sized.Speck-
led Trout. Your humle correspondent ( Jim.the PhoneMan) "We had a better than average

Shane Morris and his

Sturgeons Continue to


Trouble Boaters


July 2, 2007 The sturgeon hit Johanna Rouse
(Inset) of Orlando on the shoulder as it jumped
into the boat but due to the slow speed of the
boat, she was not seriously hurt.

Two Brevard County teenagers escaped serious
injury Thursday when they collided with a stur-
geon in the Suwannee River while riding a per-
sonal watercraft.
Alli Katirck, 14, of Mims, and Kori Snitker,.
17, of Titusville, were riding with a group of family
and friends in the Suwannee when a 6-foot stur-
geon dealt them a glancing blow, according to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) officers.
FWC Officer Dwain Mobley said the group on five
personal watercraft approached his boat,
asking for assistance. Mobley and Officer Matt
Tyre provided basic first aid to the two girls, who
said the sturgeon jumped in front of them around
the Rock Bluff area.
"The girls had sustained minor cuts and
'abrasions from the leaping fish," Mobley said.
"The two girls were very upset and didn't


the funds for the fireworks are completely community generated by donations. The volunteer
group holds an annual chili cook-off in January, an annual Barbeque in July, a raffle in June which
gives citizens to win big prizes such as the 16 foot Carolina Skiff Boat in which lucky ticket buyers
Owen Prince and Craig Holcomb walked away with this year.
Next, on Wednesday, July 4th, Steinhatchee was the scene of thousands of patriotic citizens cele-
brating our nation's birthday. The Steinhatchee Community Projects Board, Inc. sponsored the cel-
ebration, which included ice cream, sno-cones, hot dogs, music and fun at the Steinhatchee
community center at 6:30. Salt Water Cowboys who were sponsored by Anchor Trust Realty pro-
vided the music. When night fell, the crowd
of citizens lined the river, streets, and every
wide-open view of the sky to witness the
spectacular fire works show from the bridge,
which was sponsored by Bay Breeze Realty
and Roys Restaurant.

Finally, on Saturday, July 7th, the town of
Horseshoe Beach rounded out Dixie County's
Celebration. Spectators gathered on Main
Street at dusk to enjoy a fabulous display of
colored light in the sky.

want to get back on their personal watercraft,"
Mobley said. "So we put them on our patrol boat
and led the group back to the Branford boat ramp
where they had put in."
After getting the group back to the boat
ramp, officers gave the adults in the group direc-
tions to the nearest hospital so the girls could be
checked over.
"These two teens were very lucky," Mobley said.
"According to other witnesses who saw the colli-
sion, the fish was very large and could have hurt
them severely."
According to Mobley, the group had seen
media coverage about sturgeon jumping on the
Suwannee River and heard about injuries other
boaters had sustained.
I'm extremely glad to hear that these two
girls were not seriously injured," said Maj. Bruce
Hamlin, regional commander for the FWC's North
Central Region in Lake City. "However, this should
serve as a warning to other boaters on the
Suwannee. We want people to enjoy the recre-
ational opportunities on the river, but also, we
want people to be aware that these fish do jump
and can hurt you.Hamlin said.

Finally, after a whole
night and half a day in
the choppy lark water,
at about 1:30 pm,
Tammy, who had
swam ahead of the
other two, spotted a
boat nearby. The
boater was a gentle-
man and his son who
quickly called 911 and
picked the exhausted
woman up. Then an-
other boater and his lit-
tle girl helped Mr. and
Mrs. Good into a boat.
"By the time we got to
the marina in Horse-
shoe, everyone was
there waiting on us-the
ambulance, and every-
one.", commented Mr.
Good..

When asked about
being scared of sharks
in the water, Mr. Good
said that he had been
told after the ordeal
that the area in which
the boat capsized is
known to be shark-in-
fested. He said that a
whole family of dol-
phins came up to them
while they were in the
water and swam all
around the boat, be-
side it and under it. He

tect them from the
sharks.

Mrs. Good spent 3
days in the hospital
after the incident. She
actually suffered a
heart attack while in
the water, Mr. Good
said. He says she is
doing much better al-
.though it will take
weeks for them to fully
recover.

He said his airboat
was severely dam-
aged, but he expects
to work on it soon and
after the repairs they
will be ready to go
again! Mr. Good did
not know the names of
the boaters who re-
suced them, but he
said he wishes he did
so he could properly
thank the men.

Mr. Good and his wife
have been residents of
Old Town for 30 years.

He also feels that the plans to pave 5 roads in the
near future will be a wish fulfilled for the citizens.
The CRA (Community Redevelopment Act) fund-
ing has provided the means for the paving. Kight
says "they began last Monday getting five roads in
Horseshoe ready to pave". The plan is to pave a
certain number of roads each year.

The Mayor does not get a vote in Council deci-
sions, however, he breaks ties. Kight, who will of-
ficially be sworn in as Mayor in a few days, is a
lifelong resident of Horseshoe Beach. He has
served 15 out of 19 of the past years on the City
Council, and now begins his term as Mayor. The
former Mayor, Kathryn Hutchinson served for ten
years and three years prior on the Council. Ms.
Hutchinson declined a run this year. The newly
elected Council Members are as follows: Tal-
madge Bennett, Tina Brotherton, Frances Cherry
and Mike Puerner.

"The woman
brought forth from man"

I the son of.man, say
when God took of the
dust of the ground and
fashioned the form of
man and breathed into
man the breath of life,
"man BECAME a living
soul." (Gen 2:7). Man
became a living entity.


DCHS Cheerleaders say

Thank You Again!

The JV Cheerleaders held another fundraiser on June
29th. They had a car wash, back sale and sold pork
sandwich plates. The response the girls received was
unbelievable. Dixie County has to be the best county
in the world. The cheerleaders would like to thank
everyone who had their cars washed, bought a baked
good or one of the pork plates. They have almost
raised enough money for each girl to pay for their camp
and gear.

They would like to give a big thank you to Stanley at
Foodland, Mark Hatch, Smokey's, Cypress Inn, PJ
Hope, Buddy Walker and the Dixie County Road De-
partment. The girls also held a fundraiser at Horseshoe
Beach on July 7th before and during the fireworks.
They had snow cones and cotton candy. Thank you
again for everyone who has donated or helped in some
way this year to help the girls go to camp and buy their
uniforms.


directly urging to action. Some are more impul-
sive;4han others. Then ,there is the WILL- the.
mental powaerA taobse when the "spirit" of the
world" places a seed- thought into the womb of
our mind it grows and develops until it is mani-
fested in words or actions revealing to all the na-
ture of the world, for every seed brings forth after
it kind. When the spirit of God is the life force of
that which is allowed to form in the womb of our
mind then that which later is revealed will be in
accordance with its kind. I the son of man say
man was not created from woman, but woman
from man: neither was man created on account
of or for the benefit of woman but woman on ac-
count of and for the benefit of man (1 Cor 11:8-9
Amplified). "And the Lord God caused a deep
sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept; and he
took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in-
stead thereof; and the rib which the Lord God,
had taken from man, made he a women, and
brought her unto the man. And Adam said this is
now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh.
She shall be called woman, because she was
taken out of man."(Gen 2:21-23)." When God
formed the body of Adam from the dust of the
ground he did not make man and woman, for
Adam was both in one-after the image and like-
ness of God. Yet as the desire of SELF began to
burn in Adam it was necessary to reveal out-
wardly the division which was working inwardly.
Selfhood be speaks of the soul separated from
the Spirit and reaching out to become joined to
that which is of this world. The very fact that the
scripture states that ADAM BECAME A LIVING
SOUL, reveals that there was a process of de-
scending from pure spirit existence into a lesser
realm. I the son of man, say so we find Adam
turning from the virgin within was to find his Eve
without. (It is significant, a fact we cannot
presently take time to explore, that God caused
Adam to go into a deep sleep, from which sleep
mankind has.not yet awakened, nor will he, until
once again the Eve without is returned to the vir-
ginal state within, and man become whole again,
united in one). Thus we find this whole arrange-
ment a parable of a deeper spiritual portent. Our
SOUL must become one with our SPIRIT, so that
no more do we yield our soul to receive from the
spirit of this world, but "he that is joined to the
Lord is one spirit". (1 Cor-6:17) and this one spirit
must be perfectly united in one with the Soul.
Continue next week.

Attention Kids!

Don't Miss the Summer

Library Program!

The Dixie County Library, together with the
Three River's Regional Library System will host
the last two programs in the summer educational
series for children. On Wednesday, July 11th,
the program is entitled: "Native American
Weaponry & Tools", and on Wednesday, July
18th the program will be "Trees, Dirt & Water".
The programs begin at 10 a.m. Don't miss
these education and fun opportunities for kids!



New blue crab manage-

ment program under way

A new program designed to prevent over-
capitalization of the commercial blue crab industry
by managing the number of participants in
the fishery and the number of traps they can use
is under way. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) established the
Blue Crab Effort Management Program, and the
Florida Legislature and Gov. Charlie Crist ap-
proved provisions to implement the
program.

The program establishes separate
endorsements for the hard crab and
soft "peeler" crab fisheries, and blue
crab traps must be marked with trap
tags issued by the FWC to be legal.

The hard crab endorsement (VH) entitles
the owner to fish up to 600 blue crab traps and an
additional 400 traps offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
A total of 150 soft crabs per endorsement may be
landed daily as bycatch, and as many as three
shedding tanks may be maintained by the en-
dorsement holder.

A soft crab (VS) endorsement entitles the
owner to fish up to 400 peeler traps. Persons who
qualified for two soft-shell endorsements
are entitled to receive up to 250 additional traps
with the extra endorsement.


McCrabb Baptist Church

to host Sunshine State

Quartet!

The Sunshine State Quartet will be in concert at
McCrabb Baptist Church, 349 North, July 14th,
from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 pm- Don't miss this op-
portunity to hear this outstanding quartet. They
sing throughout the Central Florida area and be-
yond. Current members include Jim Harville,
Chuck Larkin, Aubrey McDowell, and Bob Tie-
mann. Please call 352-542-2207 for more infor-
mation. A love offering will be taken.




SWIMMING HOLE PHOTOS!

For an upcoming feature on the Springs in the
area, we are asking that all residents please
send in photos. If you have any photos, either
historic or current of the landscape or events at
local Springs, please send them via email or
bring them by the Advocate for us to get a copy
for publication. We are particularly interested in
Fanning, Goronto, Hart and Manatee Springs
but all area "swimming holes"' photos will be ap-
preciated.

Thanks for your help. Please email photos to
news@dcadvocate.net or bring them by the Ad-
vocate office in Cross City. We will not keep the
original photo, we just need to make a quick
copy.

Thanks!


VH and VS endorsements are transferable, but
leasing or renting endorsements, tags or traps is
not allowed. Persons who want to enter the com-
mercial blue crab fishery may buy an endorse-
ment and work no fewer than 14 days fishing-for
blue crabs on an endorsement holder's
vessel.

The program also allows qualified fishermen af-
fected by the 1995 net limitation amendment to
obtain a non-transferable blue crab limited
entry endorsement (VN). This lets the owner use
up to 100 traps to harvest hard-shell blue crabs.

In addition, the program establishes an
incidental take endorsement (VI) for
E 0 stone crabbers and shrimpers and al-
lows them a daily bycatch allowance of
200 pounds of blue crabs from stone
!:. crab and shrimp gear.

Persons who have qualified for the program will
not be charged for their endorsements or tags for
the 2007-08 license year. Beginning with the
2008-09 license year, the annual fees will be $125
for the VH and VN endorsements, $250 for the VS
endorsement and $25 for the VI endorsement.
Trap tags will cost 50 cents each.

The program also establishes a Blue Crab
Advisory Board composed of industry representa-
tives who will assist FWC fishery managers with
issues regarding the blue crab fishery.


Most Boating Accidents Happen in July!


Florida's boating accident rate (671) for 2006
was second onlyto California's 757. Florida led
the nation with 69 fatalities, compared to 47 for
Texas and 44 for California.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) said the high numbers reflect
the reality that Floridians own more than
1 million registered recreational vessels, and they
use them throughout the year.
All but eight of the fatalities wern the result
of drowning,and none of the drowning victims
were wearing life jackets.
The most likely county for boaters to be in
an accident was Monroe, followed in order by
Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Pinellas, Lee,
Broward, Collier, Brevard, Escambia and Duval.
The most likely month for the accident to happen
was July. The most likely time of day to be in an


accident was 4-6 p.m., and the most common
type of accident was a collision with another ves-
sel or a fixed object.

Accidents occur most frequently on rivers
or creeks, but the number of accidents on the
ocean or gulf or in a bay or sound are almost
as high. Nearly 600 of the state's accidents oc-
curred while the vessel was cruising .

Wow, what an
awesome GOD
we serve! On
Sunday, July 1st,
GOD moved in
such a mighty
way; through-out
our entire church!
There were 10
people, that came
forward and pub-
licly accepted
JESUS CHRIST
as their LORD
and SAVIOR!
They chose to lay
down their earthly
ways, habits and
past sins, to walk
daily with HIM
down life's path-
way! We cannot
comprehend the
magnitude of
GOD'S mighty
forgiveness and
grace, but if we
choose to follow
HIS way, then our
lives will richly be
blessed with HIS
boundless love
and forgiveness!
Remember...GOD
speaks to those,
who are willing to
listen. What has
GOD called you
to do, while here
on this earth? Is
HE calling you?
Are you listening?
It does not matter
your age, your
race, or habits,
the kind of busi-
ness you're in,
where you live or
who you are!
Please let us all
know... If we are
faithful to HIS
work, our giving,
our studying HIS
word, serving HIM


on a daily basis
and doing a few
things well, GOD
will make us a
ruler over many
things. Are you
ready? Are you
willing. Maybe
GOD is choosing
you! This past

come to the family
of GOD!
During the morn-
ing service, we
had the three
Holden brothers,
Leon,Timothy and

Donnie Morrow
blessing us with
2 testimonial
songs. Also, we
had a group, con-
sisting of Dixie

singing ," This

honor of out

Tradition may tell you
that Friday the 13 is un-
lucky, but Lake City
Community College's
(LCCC) Library is tak-
ing a break from this
ancient history phobia
to invite students and
community to the fourth
gaming event. The li-
brary will open at 10
a.m. and close at 11
p.m. The staff will be
watching for any
marathon gamers out
there who can endure
for the entire 13 hours.
Test your cyberpower
with console and per-
sonal computer games.
Try something different
like Guitar Hero or
SingStar Pop. Gamers
are asked to bring con-
trollers and consoles
and may even organize
their own tournament
and schedule the con-
ference room with the
plasma screen. There
are games already
loaded onto the Li-
brary's gaming comput-
ers for all ages and
levels of expertise. If
you are not a digital

are experimenting with
retrogressive music and
media. The library is
making space for that
recent media interest,
too. In the past the li-
brary's gaming pro-
grams have been open
for players 16 years
and older. For this
event, "lucky" 13-15
year-olds may attend if
they bring a note from a
parent that includes
contact information.
Gamers younger than
13 years old will need
to be accompanied by
an adult. Everyone reg-
isters at the door for
this event. For every 13
persons registered
there will be a door
prize. At the top of
every hour, for 13
hours, there will be
drawings for prizes
from the event's spon-
sor, Bawls Energy

free throughout the
event, and free pizza
will be delivered begin-

Luiso will be the event's
master of ceremonies
to keep players in-
formed about ground
rules and the variety of
games and tourna-
ments being offered
throughout the 13-hour
event.
Even with the usual 100
participants attending
these events, the library
facility handles the
crowd very well, and
has a unique layout that
scatters everyone on
two floors and keeps
the noise to a reason-
able fun-hum. Vickie
Lepore, library coordi-
nator, and Jim Morris,
library and community
services executive di-
rector, have not only
read the research that
points to gaming as a
future pedagogical tool
in middle and higher
education, but have ob-
served for themselves
how much young peo-
ple appreciate the col-
lege's active support for
their high-tech recre-
ational pursuits.
In May 2007, Morris
accepted an award of
Excellence for Innova-
tive Programming at the
National Institute for
Staff and Organiza-
tional Development
(NISOD) conference in
Austin, Texas. Morris
describes in his article
"The-New Academic Li-
brary aind Student Serv-
ices" (Journal of Access
Services, Fall 2007)
that there is a "new
model for the academic
library and how it sup-
ports student services,
especially through stu-
dent activities." The


LCCC Library recently
enhanced that model
through a $10,000
grant received from
North East Florida Li-
braries Information Net-
work (NEFLIN).
NEFLIN representa-
tives and other inter-
ested librarians will be;
visiting LCCC on Fri-
day, July 13, to check
out the new additions to
the library: bean bag
chairs for more informal
seating areas, im-
proved study rooms,
signage, gaming table,-
and new book kiosks.
The visiting librarians
are particularly inter-
ested in how the library
uses the college's hard-
ware and infrastructure
to host these gaming
sessions. As the visitors
will find out, it is a col-
laborative effort involv-
ing, first of all, a
supportive administra-'
tion, LCCC Foundation,
and the college depart-
ments of Media and
Community Information,
Informational Technol-
ogy, College Facilities,
and Student Activities,
library staff and volun-
teers from the faculty,
students and commu-
nity. With all of that co-
operation, the library is
able to offer a five-star
program of engaging
fun! Please pass
along this information
about the library's gam-
ing event to your teens,
friends, and neighbors.

News


What a beautiful Lord's Day it was today. Bro.
Jackie and his family were away on vacation in
Utah with their girls and their families, and Bro.
Bools filled in for him in the morning service.
Bro. Bobby Bryan filled in tonight. Both brought
super messages.
We want our visitors to know what a blessing
they are to us. Also, we want to let them know
they are very special people and we pray that
they went away feeling welcome and loved.
If you have been missing our Wednesday
night services or Sunday School at 9:45 on Sun-
'day AM, you are truly missing a blessing. Try to
come out Wednesday night at 7:00 PM and get
your mid-week fillup to carry you through until
9:45 on Sunday AM when we will be looking for
you for Sunday School. We have some mighty
fine teachers and they do a wonderful job.
Remember to pray for someone less fortunate
this week, pray for the sick, the ones who are
just cold and indifferent about the welfare of the
church and those who are having surgery this
coming week.
We want to welcome our newest family mem-
ber, Luke Landrum, son of Daniel & Amy Lan-
drum who was born 07/06/07. Congratulations
Daniel & Amy.
Until we meet again, we will be praying for
you. May God keep you safe, happy and
healthy.

Tom Baird, Curator of Noah's

The Bible and Dinosaurs
What does the Bible say about Dinosaurs? What
about astrology, Fossilization, and how the secular
World's claims that the Earth and the Universe are
millions of years old?

In Our World today, "experts" are constantly telling
us that Dinosaurs roamed the earth millions of
years ago and that fossilized artifacts and carbon
dating procedures are proof.

As Christians, our authority: God's Holy Word-the
Bible tells us that the stars and the earth are ap-
proximately 7,000 years old. Who is right?

I'm sure that young Christians have questioned in
their hearts (as I at one time did) as they listen to
teachers and college professors make these
claims with the authority of their Master and Doc-
torate degrees. What is the truth? And why does-
n't God's word address these issues?

doing, and what he has already done in our lives. Come join us
and become what God has called you to be. Until next week re-
member Jesus loves you and so do we. Be safe on this Independ-
ence Day.


God's word does! And on Sunday, July 22nd, Mc-
Crabb Baptist Church will be hosting Pastor Tom
Baird, Curator of Noah's Park and Planetarium lo-
cated in Mayo, Florida at the Middle Florida Bap-
tist Assembly Grounds to address these important
issues.

Pastor Tom is a Creationist and his evidence all
comes from God's word, the Bible. Pastor Tom
will be with the youth of our church and commu-
nity at 6:00 pm with several exhibits and to an-
swer questions and to share the truth about
Creation.

At 7:00 PM, Pastor Tom will then address the
adults and gladly answer questions.

Pastor Tom has been in the ministry for over 30
years and feels that this is his life calling. In our
World today Christianity and God's Word are con-
stantly under attack. This is an area where
churches have been silent for too long. While
secular sources have corned the market.

McCrabb Baptist is a Christ Centered, Fundamen-
talist Church and we welcome the community to
come and learn from Pastor Tom and the Bible so
that we will be better.prepared to share with the
World the truth from God's Word.

Everyone is invited to attend, regardless of church
affiliation or even ifyou don't go to church, yoG'll
be welcomed. Pastor Bruce Sullivan-Romans

Mr. Red Underhill, of Jacksonville, by way of Dixie County, has
made a point of always giving back. Most recently, his giving
back, was in the form of donating books to the Dixie County Pub-
lic library. Librarian Cindy Bellott was excited to receive the do-
nations, stating that "The children are always so happy to find
new books. With our limited budget, we rely heavily on the do-
nations of people like Mr. Underhill to make our programs possi-
ble." Red also stopped off next door to visit Joey Lander at
GenSpec Labs, where he gave him a special lighted "cross" box
after he had seen Joey on the Fox news program Hannity and
Combs defending the Cqunty's right to keep the 10 Command-
ments on the front steps of our Courthouse. Mr. Underhill said
that even though he makes his main residence in Jacksonville
these days, he never forgets Dixie County, and no matter where
he lays his head. Dixie County' will always be home.

IXIE SIGHTING


A Sponge Diving Boat was spotted in Steinhatchee. Far from it's na-
tive home in Pinellas County, FL. The top of the boat was filled with
huge natural sponges of all shapes and sizes. Natural Sponges are
harvested from the Gulf of Mexico, mostly by Greek Americans like
this one visiting this area. Natural Sponge harvesting is a dangerous
endeavor but generates a million plus dollar industry each year. <

FROM THE SUPERIN-

TENDENT'S DESK:


DIXIE DISTRICT SCHOOLS
FCAT GRADE
CLIMBS HIGHER FOR THE
2006-2007 SCHOOL YEAR

The grade released by the state
shows that the Dixie School Dis-
trict earned a "B". This year's "B"
scored a point total of 510
points, compared to last year's
393 points. We are excited
about the progress of our stu-
dents mastering the Sunshine
State Standards as we continue
to move closer to our goal of be-
coming graded as an "A" school
district. This year we only
missed being an "A" district by
15 points. The school grade
shows that 75% of our schools
are high performing.

This year both of our elementary
schools were graded high per-
forming "A"s. Anderson Elemen-
tary School's point total was 591
and Old Town Elementary
School's point total was 582.
Both elementary schools were
solid "A"s. OTES also had the
distinction of making AYP. AYP is


set in federal guidelines that
stands for Annual Year's
Progress. This is the first time
that a school in our district has
made AYP. AES also did well
moving toward AYP status,


meeting
about 99%
of AYP re-
quire-
ments.
OTES also
earned the
distinction


'~ '.4


of being "
one of Dennis Bennett
one of
the top Superintendent
25
schools in the state that showed
remarkable improvement in
math. OTES ranked 24th out of
1766 elementary schools in
Florida.

Ruth Rains Middle School
scored a strong "B" this year
with 515 points. RRMS needed
only 10 points to repeat as an
"A" school.
Dixie County High School
dropped to a "D" this year, falling
8 points short of repeating their
"C" status. The principal and
staff are using current data to
make the necessary changes for
the coming year. The staff has


participated in summer training
and is determined to move the
school to "A" or "B" status.

We want to congratulate our
staff for the hard work put forth .
this past year to help our stu-
dents be successful in meeting
the Sunshine State Standards.
We continue to move forward,
scoring a strong "B" district
grade this year. We have moved
closer to our goal of becoming
designated as an "A" district.

We hope the public is as
pleased as we are with our over-
all performance and will partner
with us in the upcoming year so
that we can make even greater
gains.
