Where's this swimming hole located? "WE'RE NOT TELLING." We here
at the Advocate aren't permitted to give the exact location of this summer's
most popular but private paradise on the river, however Bob did allow us to
snap a few quick snap shots of what the' "fuss is ALL about"!
In the past Bob has been skeptical to allow any newspapers or media to
photograph or advertise his river paradise. So right off the bat I'd like to thank
Bob Hawkings for not only creating a place for friends and neighbors to join
together have good clean fun but foremost for allowing the Dixie County Ad-
vocate to

is welcoming back Dr.
William Guy, a physi-
cian that had been with
Family Medical since
2002, before leaving to
work for Taylor Correc-
tional Facility in June
2006. Originally from
Wilmington, North Car-
olina, the, young William
Guy had decided to join
the military and then
eventually the army,
serving for 4 /2 years.
Guy went on to work as
a brick layer for a cou-
ple of years before de-
ciding to get into the
medical field. He then
studied as an under-
graduate at Florida
State University and


went on to Medical
School at the University
of Florida. Working in
and around the Talla-
hassee area for many
years, Dr. Guy found
the opportunity to work
in Dixie County at Fam-
ily Medical Center. In
2006 Dr. Guy had de-
cided to work for Taylor
Correctional
Facility. After one year,
Dr. Guy had truly
missed the staff and
the patients of Family
Medical Center. Dr.
Guy returned to his
beloved staff and pa-
tients this past June.
Dr. Guy wants all his
patients to know that he
is thrilled to be back.

STATE BUDGET CUTS
HAVE PROFOUND

IMPACT ON SMALL

SCHOOL DISTRICT

BUDGET

From:
TheSuperintendent's Desk


Only a few months
ago, the state legisla-
ture passed the
budget for this year.
The legislature even R
went intO special se- Superintendent Bennett
cession to find ways to
cut property taxes. During all those discussions,
not once do we remember anyone in Tallahassee
being concerned about revenue short falls, which
would result in budget cuts across the state. Now,
only a few months after the legislature gave us our
2007-2008 budget, they are saying that the state
budget is going to have a shortfall in general rev-
enue that may total as much as $1 billion or 4% of
the general revenue appropriations.

lid buy a ticket to watch this
.*:'i"- \' one
ne It seems like only
yesterday we heard that
Cindy Sheehan was retiring
from the ring. Make that the
arena, as in political arena.
But now, having barely had
time to retro-fit her leotards,
Cindy has decided to make
a comeback, or at least
threaten to do so.
The erstwhile champion of the anti-war movement has is-
sued a challenge, not to Ann Coulter, but to House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi. Cindy obviously has a weight advantages.
Oh, there I go again, too many years writing press releases
for pro wrestling, I suppose. Actually, in the arena of political
acumen, Nancy would have the advantage, having the years of
experience resulting in the seniority that garnered her the top
spot in the US House of Representatives. (I'm assuming it was
seniority, as I can't think of any other justification for her as-
cension to this lofty position.)
Anyway, Cindy's comeback strategy goes something like
this: If Nancy Pelosi does not make the first move to impeach
President Bush (which would be to introduce articles of im-
peachment in the House), Cindy will oppose Nancy for the
latter's House seat in the 2008 election.
Although only two presidents have been impeached in our
nation's history (Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton), impeach-
ment itself is not that difficult to pull off. All it takes is a sim-
ple majority of votes in the House; but it's just a preliminary
step in removing the president from office. It must be followed
by a Senate trial, and that requires a two-thirds-majority to
convict. And it's never happened.
Andrew Johnson missed getting removed from office by
just one Senate vote, but Clinton was never really in trouble.
Even with a Republican majority in the Senate, enough GOP
senators voted with all the Democrats to acquit that the pros-
ecution didn't even get a simple majority, let alone a two-thirds
vote.
Same situation with George W. Bush. Sure, Nancy might
be able to muster 218 votes to start the process, but the De-
mocrats have a razor-thin majority in the Senate, and there are
a few of them, as well as Independent Joe Liebermann, who
would not vote to remove Bush from office for refusing to pull
out of Iraq.
In other words, impeaching George Bush would essen-
tially be a symbolic gesture, like impeaching Bill Clinton, and
quite unlike the almost successful attempt to remove Andrew
Johnson from office in 1868. I'm thinking perhaps Ms. Pelosi
is savvy enough not to initiate what would largely be viewed
as a mean-spirited bit of petty partisanship.
Nancy Pelosi is also savvy enough to realize that, in her
position, she could ill-afford to allow a one-issue agitator to set
her agenda, particularly when Cindy gave her only until July
23rd, which would require her to pretty well drop everything
else and hustle big-time to beat the deadline. Even if she had
planned to initiate impeachment proceedings against Bush, I
expect that she. would put that item on the back burner for
awhile just to make sure her constituents understood that
Cindy Sheehan was not pulling her chain.
Would Cindy actually stand a chance of beating Nancy
Pelosi in California's 8th District (San Francisco)? It looks like
it would be a long shot, but then, you never can tell.
Neither one of them are as good-looking as some girl
wrestler's I've been acquainted with over the years, like Bon-
nie Watson and Sherri Lee. But the excitement would still be
there, and of course there are dirty tricks in politics, just like
in pro wrestling.
Best of all, if Cindy Sheehan and Nancy Pelosi ever
square off, you won't even have to buy a ticket to get a ring-
side seat or pay-per-view to watch the action on the tube. Just
turn on your TV set and tune in the evening news on any major
network.
But lid still buy a ticket to watch if I had to.


Letters To The Editor


Elected Official Amazed Me


Dear Editor:
I have owned my home in Taylor County for almost a quar-
ter of a .century and in that span of time I have never seen
anyone who wanted a job that did not have one. There are al-
ways a great number of people who do not have a job be-
cause they do not want one.
It has always amazed me that the elected officials always
say we need some industry in Taylor County to bring in jobs,
so that all those who do not have one can get a good job that
pays well, but the truth is they do not care whether they have,
a job or not. All they are interested in is generating more tax
money that they can use to finance their own "pet projects" or
for some special interest group.
Then there are those "tag along" who will support any
kind of project in hopes of getting part of the loot, such as the
coal fired plant that they knew fully well could cause the death
of many poor innocent children by the emittions that would
flow from the smoke stacks.
It seems that there are many people in Taylor County who
believe that the death of a few little children is just part of the
"cost of doing business", and all they are interested in is mak-
ing a bundle of money.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs, The Public Service Commission,
The Water Management District, and Governor Charlie Christ
for reining in our county commissioners who seem to want to
"sell out" all of the assets of Taylor County and completely de-


stroy the environment that is the envy of most of all the rest of,
Florida.
Until the citizens of Taylor County start voting in every pri- ,
mary and every election we will continue to have the type of,,
county commissioners whose loyalty lies with the full time em-,
ployers that they work for and not with all the citizens of Tay-
lor County that they were elected to represent.

WHAT DID YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR

lenge to be able to try to please every-
one. I just enjoy people.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT LIVING
IN DIXIE COUNTY: The friendliness of
my neighbors; and that includes all of
Dixie. People are so caring, helpful,
friendly and are ready at a minutes no-
tice to help those that are in need. Dixie
County is certainly "one of a kind". The
saying goes, "can get the girl out of the
country, but can't get the country out of
the girl", and I love Dixie. I love my
church and church family and doing my
church work.

HOW HAS DIXIE COUNTY
CHANGED SINCE YOU MOVED
HERE: When I was in school, we had
blackboards and chalk, the teacher
would write assignment on the board,
and we copied, and did our work and
turned it in. We had reading, writing,

this as mathe-
matics'


We listened to
the radio, we
had no TV., we
used a rotary dial
phone, and we
had no cell
phones ,
phones, or
blackberries. We
mowed the
grass with hand
push, not gas,
mower, strictly
manpower. We
cooked on wood
burning stoves;
our heat was a
wood or coal
heater or wood
burning fire-
place. I could go
on, and on, but
you get the gist.
We mowed
grass, (not smoke iti, a pot was a cast
iron pot that you cooked beans, peas,
and greens and other vegetables.
Blackberries were a wild berry we
picked to make pies and jellies.

Gasoline was .39 cents a gallon, bread
was. 35 cents a loaf, steak was an
everyday choice, it was so inexpen-
sive. A whole fryer (chicken) was about
.50 cents A month's supply of gro-
ceries for four people was never over
$60.00 or $70.00 dollars and you
bought on credit and paid at the end of
the month, or on payday. Well don't
look back, be glad for progress, and
just hope we can keep up'

FAVORITE FOOD: chicken and


dumplings, lima beans and rice, collard
green with ham, sweet potatoes, grits,
and all of the good ole home cooking,
as they say. "like grandma's".

HOBBIES: Traveling, helping others,
visiting with family and friends.

WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE
SEEN IN RECENT YEARS THAT YOU
NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD
WITNESS: Color T.V., Cell phones,
Computers, Fax machines, electric
typewriters, microwave ovens, ice
make, and water disposable refrigera-
tors, central heat and air are some of
the things that have happen during my
life.

Announces Receipt of State Grant


Cciap. Chad Reed 'I
Cross City. Florida-Sheriff
Dewey H. Hatcher announced today
that the Dixie County Sheriffs Office
received a State of Florida, Depart-
ment of Transportation Grant in the
amount of $76,568 to be used to form
a Traffic Unit within the Sheriffs Of-
fice.
This grant will be used to pay for
the salary of the Deputy in the Traffic
Unit and purchased a non-conven-
tional patrol vehicle, radar, in-car
camera system and a speed trailer
that will be used in locations that the
Sheriffs Office receives complaints
about speeding. While the Sheriffs
Office has received the vehicle, we are
awaiting delivery of the speed trailer
and expect delivery to be
within the next 30 days.
The grant was writ-
ten because of the in-
creased population and 4m
calls for service to non-

dences over the past
several years. From
2003 2004 the Florida
Department of Trans-
portation traffic count


survey saw an increase
ir! of 24-o traveling on US.
19 and during that
SI R same time period,
AW ,.Dixie County saw an
increase of 175% in traffic re-
lated fatalities.
The Traffic Unit will be per-

ized Enforcement Operations, Child
Safety Seat Checks, Safety Equip-
ment Checkpoints and Public
Awareness Events. If you are inter-
ested in the Traffic Unit and have
any questions, Sheriff Hatcher asks

By Capt. Chad Reed


Shired Island,
Florida- On Saturday
July 14, 2007, Ranch-
ers with the Florida
Sheriff's Youth
Ranches were hosted
to a day of fun by
Sheriff Dewey
Hatcher and numer-
ous volunteers from
Dixie County.
The day started
early for the Ranchers


as they loaded into
vans in Live Oak and
traveled to Shired Is-
land, where they were
greeted by numerous
volunteers who had
planned a morning of
fishing for the Ranch-
ers on airboats. There
were twelve airboats
that took Ranchers
fishing on the Gulf,
while they did not
catch many fish; they
enjoyed fun, thrilling
and exciting rides on


the airboats. Most of
the Ranchers had
never been on a boat,
much less an airboat.
After fishing and
having fun, the
Ranchers were
treated to a noon meal
and then they de-
parted back to Live
Oak. Sheriff Hatcher
stated, "I would like
to thank the numer-
ous volunteers who
took time out of the
day to make a differ-
ence in a child's life,
without their hard
work, assistance and
dedication this event
would not have been
possible."

And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.

'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.

All Eyes On You

(NAPS)-Minute crystals
of silicon carbide discov-
ered in 1893 have led to the
creation of moissanite, a
jewel sparking a lot of in-
terest among women today,
and one that is now consid-
ered the "little black dress"
of accessories.
What attracts women to
moissanite-named after
its discoverer, Nobel Prize-
winning French scientist
Dr. Henri Moissan-is that
when they wear it, they feel
confident, smart and sexy.
Much like the little black
dress, moissanite appeals
to women on an emotional
level. To learn more, visit

"Dream it build it"


A local craftsman named Robert
Lytle enjoys using raw materials in-
digenous to the dixie county area for
his creations. On most saturday and
Sunday mornings you

feeders, squirrel feed-
ers ,and natural wood bowls. his bird-
houses are not just birdhouses they
are masterpieces.
Along with birdhouses, both big
and small, Lytle creates turned bowls
from such woods as pecky cypress,
swamp cabbage, and cedar.

Lytle has titled his birdhouse in-
spired by a lighthouse "Rocky creek
condo" When asked
where he gets his
3d aS hte re ideas, Lytle smiled as
eam it and he responded, "I
rea dream it and I build
it".
Lytle, who has lived in
Dixie County his whole life enjoys
finding natural, raw materials and
turning them into unique creations.
Some birdhouses are rustic, with cy-
press knobs as chimneys, for example.
He even has a birdhouse with a water
effect. He really uses his creativity.
He says he mostly sets up here to sell
but also goes to Bell.

Dixie County Humane Society Pet of the Week!


Bailey is a male, Chi- 3. i
huahua mix who is the sweet-
est little dog you ever saw. He
loves to be held, gets along well
with other dogs and kids
and is a joy to have
around. He is just full ofl
love to give to that special
person that will return his
love.
Bailey was born with a birth defect
and one of his front legs is bent and
unusable but, he gets around on the
other three legs just fine. He is not a


special needs dog, he is just
plain special.
Boy is it hot outside, so
remember to always pro-
vide plenty of fresh drink-
ing water to your pets when
jWj/ they are left outside.
We will be returning to
CITGO gas station in Old Town
this coming Saturday from 12:30 to
4:00 p.m. for our pet adoptions.

"China Reflections" ... Local Residents
Engage In An Asian Mosaic RTavel Experience.


By Gene Dumas

Where would you like to spend your next va-
cation? Today, anywhere in the world
is within the realm of possibility; at least that's
what retired history
teacher, Gene Dumas, of Old Town would have
you to believe. Gene has visited all 50 of the
United States and has left his footprints on all
seven continents. Two years ago he ventured
south, about as far as one can go, to the frozen
continent of Antarctica. This summer, continuing
a life of travel and adventure, Gene and his wife,
Linda, flew to San Francisco and from there
began an almost unbelievable adventure, stop-
ping first in Tokyo, Japan, and
then flying to Beijing, China, Hong Kong,
Bangkok, Thailand, and finishing their trip in Sin-
gapore, before returning home to the United
States via Tokyo.
Gene and Linda have traveled extensively
throughout the world. They have traced the
Lewis & Clark Trail, lived on reservations with Na-
tive Americans, and taught in Native American
schools, such as those on the Big Cypress
Reservation here in southern Florida. Gene also
does lectureships on Bible Archaeology; History,
and Prophesy. He has been to Israel, Jordan,
Egypt, Greece, and Turkey and does colored
slide presentations of the places where Jesus
lived and died, using the pictures along with an-
cient artifacts to
illustrate his lectures
"This trip was the greatest show on earth",
Linda stated, enthusiastically, when asked for her
comments on the adventure that she had just ex-
perienced; an experience that included visiting
the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, climbing the Great
Wall of China, riding a rickshaw through the an-
cient Hutongs (narrow alleys) of Beijing, standing
at the foot of the Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau Is-
land in Hong Kong, walking through the streets of
the Royal Palace complex in Bangkok, Thailand,
and rubbing shoulders with a disciplined people
living in the modernistic, city/independent nation
of Singapore. Whew! What an
experience.

Marvelous, stupendous, the realization of
yet another dream; these were
Gene's thoughts as he made his way to one of
the many towers that grace
the Great Wall of China, the world's longest
human-made structure,
stretching over approximately 4,000 miles from
Shanhai Pass in the east


to Lop Nur in the west,
along an arc that roughly
delineates the southern
edge of Inner Mongolia.
The largest human-made
structure ever built in
terms of surface area and
mass, that edifice was
built to keep those who
would invade China at
bay. Communication be-
tween army units along
the
length of the Great Wall,
including the ability to
call reinforcements and
warn garrisons of enemy
movements, was of high
importance. Those tow-
ers
were built upon hill tops
or other high points
along the wall for ease in
spotting messages which
many times consisted of
smoke signals.

Master 1986 of The Grand Lodge of the State of Florida; Worshipful Master Dennis Gates,
of Shamrock Lodge No. 268 F. & A.M. of Cross City; and Les Flaherty, Secretary and Past Master of Shamrock Lodge 268.

Shamrock Lodge 268 was chartered on April 22, 1931. It had 18
chartered member who were all Florida Masons and brought their
memberships from other Florida lodges. These were Harmony No. 3 of E
& A.M., Jappa No. 4, Solomon No. 20, Gainesville No. 41, Newland No.
179, and Archer No. 197. There has been one Grand Master from Shamrock,
Most Worshipful Carvie Erastus Webb, 1969. Bro. Webbs's widdow is cur-
rently a resident at the Masonic Home in St. Petersburg Florida. While
Most Worshipful Webb served, John Fuqua served as his Grand
Orator.


In Hong Kong we vis-
ited the Tian Tan Bud-
dha, a giant bronze statue that was
constructed there beginning in 1990, and finished
on December 29, 1993, the
birthday of Siddhartha Gautama. The construc-
tion costs'of the giant Buddha
were estimated to be up to $68 million. It was
formed out of 202 separate
pieces of bronze. In addition to the exterior com-
ponents, there is a strong
steel framework inside the statue to support the
heavy load and wind pressure.

Our coach wound its way up a steep mountain
road to Ngong Ping Plateau where the
huge statue, built on the hilltop in front of the
monastery, sits majestically
close to the Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery.
The 34-metre high Big Buddha is
the world's largest, seated, outdoor Bronze Bud-
dha.

"While our visit was brief, it was most memo-
rable", said Gene. "We were
fortunate enough to see some of the most im-
pressive sites in the world. We thank
God that we live in a country where we are free to
travel to places like those

NEWS
In reports from all quarters,
our Church Retreat on the
Suwannee last week was a
huge success! We began the
week on Sunday evening
with a Baptismal service in
which six people were added
to God's Kingdom, and
closed out the week Friday
evening with a seafood buffet
supper, with a lot of fun and
good Christian fellowship in
between. We thank God for
all His blessings on our ef-
forts in His Name. We also
thank Sis. Michelle and all the
others who had a hand in or-
ganizing and administering
the Retreat...good job, every-
one!

It was a blessing to be back
in church at New Prospect on


Sunday, as our choir sang the
beautiful songs of praise and
worship and Bro. Billy deliv-
ered God's very momentous
messages, choosing his text
from Romans 10:8-10. On
Wednesday evening, July
18th, we will have our
monthly church Business
Meeting immediately after
Prayer Meeting. Our monthly
Fellowship Supper is sched-
uled for the following
Wednesday evening, July'
25th.

God is graciously and consis-
tently answering prayers, but
there are still many on the
church prayer lists. We urge
you to be in prayer for all
these needs, and please pray
for our President and other
leaders, as well as our mili-
tary personnel in harm's way. -
We invite you to come and
visit with us at New Prospect.
anytime, and please bring

are welcome! Have a good-
week, and may God bless

CITY OF HAWKINSVILLE ON THE SUWANNEE


--..V -: -', Dixie Dive Team


Restores Sunken


Paddle Steamer

BYKathy McKinney
The Dixie County Emer-
-gency Management
y c n l Search and Rescue Dive
Team will spend two
days removing logs and
debris from the last
steamboat to run the
... .Suwannee River, the City
PHOTO K4 THY MC KINNEY of Hawkinsville. The
Hawkinsville is one of only ten Florfda Underwater Archaeological Preserves
statewide.

The City of Hawkinsville was built in Georgia in 1886. The Hawkinsville spent
37 years carrying lumber and cargo up and down the Suwannee River, includ-
ing the materials to build the railroad bridge at Old Town. The success of haul-
ing lumber by rail signed the death warrant for the paddle steamer, and she
was tied up for the final time on the bank the Suwannee River in 1923 in Old
Town by Mr. Currie, her captain.

According to Mike McCaskill, Dive Instructor, the team will remove a log that
has damaged the port side planking, clean out the debris swept into the wreck
by the river, and place new marker buoys. The project is being supervised by
Dr. Roger Smith, a State Underwater Archaeologist. The Hawkinsville site is
a popular sport with divers, and has been open to the public since 1992.

The Dixie Dive Team volunteers helping with this project are Mike McCaskill,
Clayton Locklear, Roy Bass, Mark James, Michelle Waskom, Will Yearty, David
Chapman, Gary Nave, Mike Gantt, Sabra Nave, Kenny Luzoder, Scotty Pen-
darvis, Jason Linderman, Jessica Bellot, Scott Garner, and Lane Downing.


Swimming Holes from page 1
present it exclusively to our readers. It's all about that journalistic
persuasion- I just flat out asked nicely! Oh yeah and agreed to at least to
have discretion about the directions!
So how did Bob's River Place come to be? Bob says "the word traveled
fast." He has resided on the Suwannee River for nearly 35 years. He built
all the fun activities originally for his family and, of course, they
invited their friends. Now his children's children and there friends
plunge into fun here. Bob only recently had to start the VIP lists. He
stated plainly that over time the word has spread far and wide and people
are popping up from all over. Bob doesn't mind the company he simply just
"doesn't want the place over n.
What all does Bob's River Place have to offer? The 40 foot water slide
that shoots it's riders swiftly plunging into the Suwannee river is very
popular, but it seems Bob's place is most famous for the tree swing
(Bob's Swing). After climbing several steps and nearly standing three
stories above the ground, thrill seekers leap from a platform and extends
off the front of a tree house and swing freely over into the Suwannee
River. The key is to LET GO! This leap of faith can satisfy any
adrenaline junkies desire.
Off the backside of the tree house you will also find the "TARZAN" a
metal cable that extends from the platform and travels swiftly across the
property until your feet reach the ground. The key to this stunt is to
HOLD ON TIGHT!
All kidding aside Bob does make safety a key element on his property.
Many safety guidelines such as weight limits are enforced. There are
warning signs posted on all equipment that may require restrictions. As
with any type of recreational activity injuries can be sustained if
guidelines aren't respected. Bob's River Place is not responsible for
accidents. Signs are clearly Posted: Swim Slide and Swing from rope at
own risk. Bob just wants everyone "to be safe and have fun". It looks to
us that he has successfully accomplished his GOAL! Thanks again Bob for
this exclusive fun story!,

Toys For T7ots



Outreach provided all of the toys.
Everything from dominos to doll houses were available to buy for the children.
Foodland was in support of this event as well, providing free hotdogs,
drinks, and chips for all that came. The helpers working this event were not
only hard working, but were very helpful and pleasant to be around.
United Christian Services, which is supported solely by churches to help
people in need, will be joining Toys for Tots again in October, which will han-
dle many of people's Halloween decor, and then again in November. Advertise-
ments will be made prior to these events.

that we experienced on this trip. It is indeed, a wonderful world!"
Today, Gene lives in Old Town with his wife, Linda. They have two children,
Gene, Jr. who also lives in Old Town and Jessica who lives in Bell, Florida with
her husband, Ed Ash, and her three children, Josh, Tony, and Lacey. Tony and
Josh, who attend Bell High-School have just returned from a three week stay
in
Germany where they were accepted as exchange students.
Gene composed the following recitation about his adventures in China,
giving us a small look into what he and Linda experienced and saw in a
place that many of us may never get to see.
CHINA REFLECTIONS
China, ancient land of Shang, Han, Tang, and Ming Dynasties,
a people subjected to Mongol and Manchu rule,
kingdom of the mighty Genghis and Kublai Khans;
Did she really have a "Mandate From Heaven?"
Isolated from much of the known world for most of history,
with name places such as "The Forbidden City",
which evoke a solemn reminder.
It was Marco polo's visit to the court of the great Kublai Khan,
that revealed the splendor and magnificence of that opulent culture,
to an amazed and somewhat naive European world.
For much of human history, the only structure built by human hands,
that can clearly be distinguished from outer space,
spanning a distance of more than 4,000 miles,
threatened to insure that isolation;
at least that was the intention,
until from off the grasslands of the vast Mongolian steeps,
the mighty Genghis with his nomadic armies,
came bursting through.
As we ride in a rickshaw, through one of Beijing's "Hutongs",
an ancient narrow alley, where time has not completely erased the visages of
a
simpler way of life,
my mind conjures up an image of what this city must have been like,
1,000 years ago, during that period known as the Song Dynasty,
when a General Zhao emphasized the road to peace,
and founded a government that employed political skill rather than military
force.
Oh, that his idea might have prevailed; but then...
Land torn asunder by invasion, internal strife and civil war;
Is Taiwan really a part of China?
Experiments in Government gone wrong,
but now and then, throughout the ages,
voices crying out, "Let the people rule!"
And for that outcry, many paid the ultimate price,
as did those in Tian'anmen Square,
where up to 3,000 laid down their lives for what they believed.
We know that country as a Communist nation,
but would Karl Marx or Vladimir Lenin really recognize it as such?
China, with her rapid industrialization, we were told that two thirds of the
world's building cranes are now at work in China,
and with a population three times that of the United States,
seems to be thriving on Capitalism,
and stands poised to be, in the realm of commerce, a world contender.
Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Malaysia, be aware;
the sleeping dragon has awaken! By Gene Dumas

What's next on the agenda? "Next year we are-planning a trip to Denmark,
Sweden, Finland, and Russia where we want to visit Moscow and the histori-
cal
city of St. Petersburg", said Gene. "Bon Voyage!"

BUDGET CUTS from Page 1

They are recommending that all school districts
make plans to reduce expenditures from state
funds by at least 4%. The state is also saying that
4% may not be enough and that we may need to
make more reductions in our budget as the year
moves forward.

What we don't understand is why the state ig-
nored information in the Collins Report over a
year ago, which predicted that the state was going
to have a shortfall of funds. That projection was
based on the following reasons. First, because of
higher inflated property values and taxes, people
are moving into the state at a lower rate. Second,
Medicaid payout is hurting the budget. Third, the
state is going to be under enormous, financial
pressure to meet the classroom reduction man-
date passed by the voters. Fourth, monies used in
the hurricane reconstruction are leveling off.
The Collins Report predicted this shortfall of rev-
enue. Why didn't the state take note of this be-
fore now?

The school district is already moving to imple-
ment a 4% cut, which will curtail many services
that we wanted to provide. We have a small
budget in our district and these cuts will defi-
nitely hurt. The School Board will have a special
meeting to discuss where in our district to make
the first round of budget cuts. Our focus will be
to make cuts in our budget that will not impact
the classroom and core subject areas. Our goal is
to continue to make the tremendous gains in stu-
dent performance that we have seen for the past
two years

The Myth about Meyer:

Can he win with his own?

By Buddy Martin

While interviewing some of America's brightest jour-
nalism prospects recently at
the Poynter Media Institute in St. Petersburg, I hap-
pened upon young lad from the
University of Illinois who had a penchant for sports
writing.

"How do you like Ron Zook?" I asked him.

"Oh, he's fine he's a good recruiter," said the lad from
UI. "I'm
hoping he will get fired after next year and then we can
win the national
championship."
Touche! Point taken. Urban Meyer has yet to prove that
he can win titles with all
his own players, although it seems a fate accompli.

Giving credit where it is due, Zook deserves to be rec-
ognized for his contributions
to the 2006 national champion Florida Gators. However,
there is this misconception
that Urban Meyer is an opportunist that wins with other
people's talent.

It is true that 21 of the starters from Florida's national
championship team were
signed by Zook, including Chris Leak, DeShawn Wynn,
Dallas Baker, Jemalle Cornelius,.
Andre Caldwell, Tate Casey, Drew Miller, Jim Tartt,
Jarvis Moss, Derrick Harvey, Ray
McDonald, Brandon Siler, Earl Everett and Tony Joiner.

However, without the presence of these Meyer signees,
there would have been no
championship: Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin, Reggie Nelson,
Ryan Smith, Jarred Fayson,
Wondy Pierre-Louis and Brandon James.

So in 2007, it will be mostly Meyer's recruits defending
"The Swamp" and all
that glitters. Just 15 Zookmen will be on the 85-man ros-
ter.

This is folly, of course; because football players are foot-
ball players. No matter
who signed them, it took the discipline, focus and at-
tention to coaching detail by
Meyer and his staff to produce the ultimate result.
Right now, Florida has the
hottest football coach in America and a staff second to
none. That's why they all
recently got nice raises, following the bump their boss
received to $3.25 million.

Must Have Title!


Having said that, there will be those who will point to-,
the fact Meyer has won three
consecutive championships in three two-year stints
without ever coaching a team of
all of his own players.

Not that there are any flies on his two recruiting
classes, which by all accounts
have either been ranked No. 1 or in the Top Five by
scouting services since he has
been at Florida. Coaches are licking their chops over
the 27 new arrivals.

It has always been my practice not to pass judgment on
the incoming freshmen until
I've had a chance to see them perform in pads at the col-
lege level. However, based
on observing some of early enrollees in spring ball and
tape or live performances
I've witnessed in high school, I'd be a fool not to admit
that this group
isn't loaded with talent.

Much of what happens to the Gators in 2007 will be de-
cided by external forces.

As Steve Spurrier recently told me, Florida was fortu-
nate to win sl many close games
last year and, without belittling their effort and result,
pointed out that you
can't count on things always going your way.

As far as players getting into trouble, I have it on good
authority that so far
those who have run afoul with the law have mostly been
dealt with and that as of
this writing, the only real loss for 2007 will be that of
offensive Ronnie Wilson,
who may yet get a chance to redeem himself after this
season.

Injuries must be factored in, too, and that more than
everything else, they might
determine the outcome of the Gators' 2007 season.
Meyer has shown the ability to
adapt upon loss of key personnel, i.e. Marcus Thomas
last season, but there are some
players who are nearly indispensable. If, say, Tebow
goes down for the year, then
forget about Atlanta and maybe a lot more.

Fragile is the nature of all football fates, which only
underscores why
championships should be cherished and celebrated. Un-
fortunately, the rings don't
mean a thing once the season kicks off Sept. 1 against
Western Kentucky. Gator fans
should enjoy the last few remaining days of the na-
tional championship afterglow,
because in about six weeks they start all over again.
Quick Jump Starts
1. I honestly don't think Bob Stoops is a cheater, but he
and his administration
at Oklahoma must do their diligence to know about
things like the two players who
were subsidized by sweetheart jobs from a Norman car
dealer that recently wiped out
all eight wins from 2005.

2. Don't know about you, but I completely missed the
David Beckham's arrival
with the Los Angles Galaxy Friday and nobody even
called to remind me of it.

3. Why not go with a reverse salary cap rule in baseball,
requiring that the Tampa
Bay Devil Rays' entire payroll be at least equal a year's
salary of either Alex
Rodriguez or Ichiro Suzuki, whichever is greater?

4. The decision of President T.K. Wetherell to not renew
the contract of Athletic
Director Dave Hart after 18 months was probably not
influenced that much by this,
but the fact that Florida's Jeremy Foley keeps knock-
ing it out of the park just
150 miles down the road didn't help Hart's staying
power.


5. College athletic programs have been ordered by the
NCAA to reduce the size of
their sports media guides, but did that mean the Uni-
versity of Florida had to
completely wipe out the yearly game-by-game results
for the past 100 seasons?

Short Stuff
If you want to know the inside story of the often cor-
rupt world of baseball card
collecting, read Michael O'Keeffe and Teri Thompson's
"The Card, Collectors,
Con Men and the True Story of History's Most Desired
Baseball Card" the
story of the $2.35 million Honus Wagner T206 card ...
You always wonder who those
two jokers from the stands were, tagging along with
Hank Aaron around the basepathes
after home run No. 715 in Atlanta, and what would hap-
pen today if they tried that
(they'd either be shot or maced once they jumped the
fence )... I appreciate
Aaron's willingness to boycott Barry Bonds' record
home run when it happens, but
remind him of the fact that he never forgave Commis-
sioner Bowie Kuhn for doing the
same thing at his 715th.


And good morning ...
... Gary Sheffield. The more you, talk about Barry
Bonds, you using the "clear and
the cream" and then do a drive-by on Joe Torre by al-
leging he is racist, the
uglier it gets. Do yourself a favor and stop running your
mouth like you did to
Bryant Gumbel on his HBO Real Sports program.

Scalloping Update From Page 1
Scallops are still abundant out of both Horseshoe

before low tide, and gathering their limit with lit-
tle or no problem. Out of Steinhatchee, most re-
ports state that the scallops are more abundant to
the South, but a little larger to the North. If you

BOYD SECURES FUNDS
FOR HORSESHOE COVE
DREDGING

WVASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
forth Florida) today secured $2.7 million to dredge
Horseshoe Cove with the passage of the Energy
standd WaterAppropriations Act (HR 2641)
for Fiscal Year 2008. The U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
will use this funding to re-
n -urn Horseshoe Cove to its

the Army Corps of Engineers previously dredged
Horseshoe Cove in 1997 and 2001. Since then, the
cove has suffered from significant silting, causing
a
considerable decrease in its depth. The dredging
project will return Horseshoe Cove to the appro-
priate depth by removing sand and silt that has
accumulated.

The Word Made
Flesh
"The Woman
Brought Forth
from Man"

I, the son of
man, say it would be
well, for a moment, to
consider this word "rib"
which is used in Gen
2:21 it is the Hebrew
word "tsela" used else-
where as SIDE or
SIDE CHAMBER, or
CHAMBER. Obviously
the Lord took more
than a bone, a rib--
bone, 6butf tht who'
chamber, the womb,
and from this He built a
womb-man, or a
"woman". From this .
time on man was in-
complete, he could not
bring forth after his.
own kind without the
help of his woman, nor
could the woman be
complete without the
man. Spiritually the di-
vision is just as readily
seen. The mind cannot
bring forth of itself, but,
must yield itself either
to the gendering force
of the spirit of the world
or else to the spirit of
God. "That the wicked-
ness of man was great
in the earth, and that
every imagination of
the thoughts of his
heart was only evil
continually," (Gen 6:5)
"shows how much man
had already turned
from God and given his
mind over to the God
of this world." "Wherein
in time past ye walked
according to the course
of this world, according
to the prince of the
power of the air, the
spirit that now worketh
in the children of dis-
obedience."(Eph. 2:2)
The Wuest Expanded
translation gives, domi-
nated by the spirit of
the age in this world
system. "Thank God,
His grace is sufficient
to quicken us and raise
us up to a higher realm
that we might live by
His spirit. This brings

us to a very important
thought; it is God who
place our spirit in the
body, choosing
whether we shall be
housed in a masculine
or feminine body. This
is by divine purpose for
there are specific les-
sons to be learned in
each realm, and HE IS
DEVELOPING OUR
SPIRITUAL BEING,
using this natural tra-
vail, and these various
physical realms in that
development. I, the son
of man, say man or
woman, physically, we
all are a "spirit" cen-
tained in an earth body,
with the soul as the
bridge through which
the spirit relates to the
visible world. Because
man is currently low-
ered from pure spirit
form to bear the image
of the earthy, he is
known as a LIVING
SOUL. The human
spirit is not sufficient in
itself, but must either
become one with the
spirit of the world or the
spirit of God, in order
to bring forth. The nat-
ural inclination is to
yield to the spirit of this
world and so our mind
becomes filled with
things that bespeak of
the flesh. But when the
spirit of God draws us
to Himself, and we be-
come ONE IN HIS
SPIRIT, then the
process is on to renew
the mind, from minding
the flesh, to minding
the spirit. Concurrent
with this process of re-
newing the mind is "the
hidden man of the
heart." (1 Peter 3:4). As
this new man comes to
maturity, and the mind
is fully renewed, there
shall be that hour of
complete loosing (re-
demption) from all of
this world's system and
we shall have a new


body that adequately
manifests our restored
state.

fans and air conditioning -
are working efficiently.
* Take advantage of
community cooling cen-
ters or other air- condi-
tioned locations such as
a mall, library or senior
center.
* Find out if you are;
eligible for assistance
with your cooling bills. .
