According to Dixie County Coordinator,

taxes funded these projects. Bellot says that unfortunately
with tax rollbacks we will probably not be able to pave many
if any at all for the next couple of years except for some pos-
sible new construction to be paid from impact fees as they
come in. Bellot goes on to say that it is important to note that

very limited according to an agreement signed between

Governor


Goes Green
I don't mean to be picking on Charlie Crist. The people of,
Florida probably made a good choice when they put him in
office. But I think he might be a bit overboard with his will-
ingness to accommodate the global warming contingent.
It seems that even the governor's mansion (Charlie calls
it the "people's mansion") is "going green," and I'm not talk-
ing about a new paint job. They're making sure it won't be re-
sponsible for the release of too much carbon into the atmos-
,phere, as in CO02,,which is what plants inhale, and later ex-
'fialee'the oxygen on Wiich-We' animal species survive.
This renovation includes a hydrogen fuel cell, which can
be had for a measly $70,000 (I was thinking about getting
one for my pickup until I checked the price). I couldn't get a
total figure on the project, but a newspaper report did men-
tion that it would save a little less than $3,000 a year on the
Gov's utility bill, which is about a grand less than it runs in a
temperate month. At this rate, it is estimated that it will take
until 2031 just to pay for the fuel cell, provided it doesn't have
to be replaced before then. And for this, the taxpayers will en-
joy(?) a 20% reduction in carbon emissions from the relevant
sources as this pertains to accommodating the energy con-
sumption at the governor's mansion.
Somehow, I have a bit of a problem considering this
money well spent. Maybe that's because I don't buy into the
global warming scenario, which means I think we might be
investing heavily in an effort to solve a problem that doesn't
even exist.
Want more electricity without burning more fossil fuels?
Ever hear of nuclear power? They have a nuclear plant down
by Crystal River and it's been so efficient and trouble-free
that I'm not sure Jane Fonda even knows it's there. Trouble
is, we need more of them, but we're not building any new
ones. The Three Mile Island incident in 1979 had no devas-.
tating results, but it launched an all-out effort by environ-
mentalists to oppose any new nuclear plants.
Remember how Rachel Carson's book, The Silent
Spring, got the insecticide DDT banned, with a resulting pop-
ulation explosion of the Anopheles freeborn mosquito and a
malaria epidemic in some parts of the world? That's what
happens when public officials get caught up in media hype
and. come up with a catastrophic solution to a relatively mi-
nor problem.
France is heavily into the use of nuclear power for elec-
tricity. Now, who is to say that France is hostile to the priori-
ties of the political left? And how about Japan? They recent-
ly had a serious problem at a nuclear facility, but they're
dealing with it, and you've certainly got to give them credit for
using nuclear power after two of their major cities were de-
stroyed by nuclear bombs in 1945.
France has far less sparsely-populated area than we
have, and Japan has even less "ideal" space in which to lo-
cate nuclear generating plants and particularly places to dis-
pose of nuclear waste. So why are we not utilizing the one
percent of our wide-open spaces that it would take to ac-
commodate the expansion of our nuclear energy use?
And since we will be continuing to use oil to meet some
of our energy needs for some time, what's wrong with using
our own? We're sitting on gazillions of untapped barrels of
crude all over the lower 48, in the Alaskan wilderness, and
off our coastal waters. And yet we import about 90 percent of
our, oil, much of it from countries that sponsor terrorism.
We're told that we "can't" build refineries. Why not? Be-
cause they stink? Again, what's wrong with our wide-open
spaces? Better yet, how about one in Ted Kennedy's back
yard? He didn't want a field of odorless power-gend7416356

days so people would come out and take their shoes off or can see Look Out Mountain. It is worth $180,000; I gave it to
whatever they may, and trade for a bottle of moonshine. My my sons. I have other assets which I don't care to reveal. I

would feel sorry for us and give us some groceries, but he did use. He did not seem interested in being a family doctor or
not. That is when my credit problems started. I made up my know anything about herbal medicines, but since I was wear-

" A Walk In The Garden"
What comes to your mind
when you think of the
month of July: Indepen-
dence Day? Fireworks?
Veterans? Scallops? Va-
cation? Beach? Or maybe
if you are a teenager
"BORING" would be your
choice of words. However,


P~~ w~kearLie sV


~ '~nBN:Karen &Art %VvckofT


all of us here in the Sunshine State have to agree it is a hot
month. Going for a walk in your garden needs to be re-
served for just a few minutes while the dew is still on the
clover or after the sun goes down. Let's look on the positive
side of July: the good Lord has decided to end the drought
for the time being. The pastures, trails and roadsides are
brimming with wildflowers and beautiful colors. Instead of
dwelling on all of the bugs and caterpillars that are eating
your sweet green leaves for their lunch, notice the butterflies
your flowers are attracting! If you want even more flying
friends, plant some plumbego, lantana, pentas. hibiscus,
althea, butterfly bushes, firebushes, and honeysuckles to
mention a few. If you are interested in any one particular but-
terfly, look on line or talk to a local nurseryman to find out
what that particular species feeds on and which plant they
use for nectar production. Then add a water source to your
garden such as a bird bath, bowl, saucer or even a small

pond and wah lah; they will
come! Some friends have re-
cently asked what they could
do to improve their garden in
July? Make the usual checks
for infestations of unwanted
pests like beetles, white flies,
and aphids. I recommend us-
ing organic nature friendly pes-
ticides to keep the balance be-


tween beauty and the FEAST! Don't be afraid to trim your
shrubs such as hollies, ligustrum, boxwoods, and vibur-
nums. Many of us have crepe myrtles blooming yet, howev-
er, trim the blooms that have turned brown (the dead heads)
so the tree can produce more leaves and strengthen its
branches. Adding fertilizer to shrubs and trees in the middle
of summer is good, but you need to be a little careful not to
use a fresh manure on annuals and newly transplanted
trees and shrubs. Most animal manure is too strong for the
young roots and may burn or even kill the plant. Use a time
release type, a mild liquid for fast absorption or a weak gran-
ular like a 6-6-6 or milorganite. Wow, I'm tired after all of that
work! I'm heading for my newly built deck ole rockin chair
and a cool glass of lemonade to help me relax and watch
the butterflies in my backyard. Enjoy the freedom to walk in
your garden!

HOW HAS DIXIE COUNTY CHANGED SINCE YOU


MOVED HERE? First of all, the lights were
flambeaus (rope soaked in grease), Also, the
,. roads were all dirt. I also remember when we
.L.. used outhouses because there were no in-
side toilets. Refrigerators were ice boxes
and it was hard to get ice for them. Very few
people had ice boxed Grocery stores carry
all kirnds of food today. We used to get sta-

., beans. There was no frozen food back then.
Music was on crank victrolas and records in-
stead of today's radios, TV's and CD's.
FAVORITE FOODS: Pig feet, old fash-
ioned salt pork, small fried Bream, Hog skins
(pork rinds) lima beans, and oyster stew.
HOBBIES: Fishing and telling lies are my
favorite (laughs), Pea shelling, opening oys-
ters runs a close second Also, I love watch-
ing hummingbirds, chickadees, red. birds,
doves, woodpeckers, and squirrels at the bird feeder.
I used to like to flower garden. Now I just gather seeds
for my daughter in law so my son can plant them.
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE SEEN IN RECENT
YEARS THAT YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD
WITNESS: I never dreamed I would see condominiums
built where Johnson's Marina was once located.

traveled to Shired Island,
where they were greeted by
numerous volunteers who
had planned a morning of
fishing for the Ranchers on
airboats. There were twelve

they did not catch many fish;
they enjoyed fun, thrilling

After fishing and having

Grumpy's Believes In

Community Service
We at Grutnpy's believe'
in community service. We
started our ceiling project.
We sell homemade cookies
for $3. We donate $1 from
each box sold to our "ceil-
ing." We ask our customers
to help us as well. If you are
a non-profit organization,
please drop us a card, buy a


what you wish. When our
ceiling fills with bills we will
draw a card, call a represen-
tative in, and give them a
customized .leaf blower and
whatever hits the ground is
donated to that organization.
We wish to continue this for
as long as possible, so
please help us help our
town!
Example: Boy Scouts,
Girl Scouts etc., DAV, VA,
Churches. Any non-profit or-
ganization must be on a
business card!'
Thanks, Grumpy's


These people taking time out of their day made this event
possible. The Ranchers enjoyed a day of fun that they will
never forget!

13 Manatees Spotted On

The Dixie County Side Of The River

_- ,-- -
--- .. .: ---


Gatrina and Adam Stinson took the pho-
tos of this "once in a lifetime" sight as they
were camping with their church and'enjoy-
ing the Suwannee River in July. Katrina
says that these 13 manatees were spotted
on the Dixie County side of the river, across
from Hart Springs.. With so few manatees
left in the world, it is so unusual to see so
many together at one time.
Manatees and dugongs are marine
mammals of. the order Sirenia. They origi-
nated in the middle Eocene period around
45 to 50 million years'ago. They are gentle,
plant-eating herbivores sometimes nick-


named "sea cows". The name .mi"feflbe
comes from the Haitian word manati. Today,
their closest living relatives are elephants,
hyraxes and aardvarks. Their thick-
skinned, streamlined, almost hairless bod-
ies have forelimbs modified into flippers.
The tail is enlarged and horizontally-flat-
tened.
Manatees are now quite rare. Perhaps
only 2,500 are left in the USA. In ancient
times, sailors mistook them for mermaids or
sirens on account of their long tails. Today,
they often bear scars on account of their
collisions with boats, 'a major hazard.

Florida Library Youth Program

Holds Fun-Filled Events
The Florida Library y south Pro-
gram was conducted in our local Dix-
ie County Library on June 6 July 18.
The program was designed to be
a free, fun-filled program designed t
for elementary school-aged children.
The goal of the Summer program is
to encourage children in Florida to
become lifelong readers and library -
users.
The last two sessions of the sum-
mer, local community leaders and
volunteers treated children to a show
and tell. On Wednesday, July 11, Lo- .
cal Business Owner, and Dixie na-
tive, Jerry Hill put on a superb show.
Mr. Hill shared his Indian artifacts
with the youngsters. Everyone en-
joyed this fantastic display.
The last week of the program, on
July 18, several local groups shared
with the children. For example, the
Dixie Levy and Gilchrist Soil and Wa-
ter Conservation Board members
shared a story and display. The chil- .- '
dren were very interested in all of the
information.
The Mission of the Three Rivers Photo Submitted
Regional Library System is to give the people of Dixie, Gilchrist and Lafayette Counties ac-
cess to materials for their informational, recreational, and life-long learning needs. Our local
library is located in Dixie Plaza, Hwy 19, Cross City. The Dixie County Library Manager is
Cindy Bellot. Our community is so blessed to have Mrs. Bellot and her team of devoted li-
brary staff who care so much about the citizens, including the children, of Dixie County.

BOYD SECURES FUNDING FOR

DENTAL CLINIC IN DIXIE COUNTY


Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida), a
member of the House Ap-
propriations Committee, has
secured $75,000 for the con-
struction of a dental clinic at
the Dixie County Health De-
partment primary care facili-
ty. This funding was includ-
ed in the Labor, Health and
Human Services, and Edu-
cation Appropriations Act
(HR 3043) for Fiscal Year
2008, which passed last
night in the House of Repre-
sentatives.
"I am so proud that I was
able to secure federal fund-
ing that will help the people
of Dixie County have better
access to dental health-
care," said Congressman
Boyd. "Dental health is so
important to a person's over-
all -health, and there is no
doubt that the dental clinic
will fill an enormous health-
care void in Dixie County."
Currently, Dixie County
is without any dental facili-
ties. The funding will be
used for two dental operat-
ing rooms, one exam room,
a work-up area, and addi-
tional space to operate Dixie
County's Women, Infants,
and Children (WIC) pro-
gram.
Funding for the dental
clinic in Dixie County was a
top priority of the District
Healthcare Council, which
Congressman Boyd formed
in 2005 to help meet the crit-
ical healthcare needs of
North Florida's communities.

trict Healthcare Council fo-
cuses on regional problem

missioner Marcus Hays rep-
resents Dixie .County on the
council.
"I understand the strug-
gles that Dixie County and
other rural communities in
our area face when it comes
to providing basic health-
care," Boyd stated. "I will
continue to work with the
community, the state and lo-
cal agencies, and in Wash-
ington to address our con-
cerns about the availability,
affordability, and quality of
healthcare in North Florida.'"

Governor Designates July 31



"Animal Disaster Preparedness Day"


Florida Governor Charlie Crist has designated July 31st as Animal Disaster Pre-
paredness Day 2007 and he asks all Floridians to take the following actions:
1. properly identify the animals in their care,
2. assemble a disaster kit for every animal and
3. make evacuation plans for their families and all animals under their care.,
The reasoning behind an "Animal Disaster Preparedness Ddy" is straight-
forward. g.
Florida is extremely susceptible to hurricanes of disastrous proportions '
that often force residents to evacuate their homes. Further, there is a large
population of retired people in Florida, 30 to 40 percent of whom own '
pets, and the elderly are often among the most severely impacted by .", .
disasters. .
Florida Governor Charlie Crist I ;\
About 52 percent of Florida households include animals and
the bonds between these human and animal families are often so j x
strong that nearly 1-in-4 animal caregivers refuse to evacuate -. ,
without their pets. This jeopardizes public safety and hampers dis-
aster relief efforts. ',.- '
Animals left behind during a disaster will suffer. They can become in-


*., jured, ill and die.
According to the Office of the Governor, Florida is a national leader in
planning for animal evacuation and sheltering during disasters, including
the establishment of pet-friendly shelters in several counties and aggressive
public education campaigns. Now, Floridians can continue to set a national
.- example by including animals in family disaster planning.
July 31st is Animal Disaster Preparedness Day in Florida (Photo: Mis-
sissippi Animal Response Team)
.s, i -" In addition, according to Joe Kight, FloridaESF-17 Coordinator,
.. and FDACS Hollie Harvey, Florida veterinarians, animal shelter work-
ers, emergency management officials and law enforcement per-
sonnel are requested to recognize the important public safety and in-
dividual mental health benefits of incorporating animals into disaster
plans.
V7 L The theme of Animal Disaster Preparedness Days nationwide in
2007 is "Don't Leave Home Without Them." United Animal Na-
S'tions and its subsidiary, the Emergency Animal Rescue Service,
, ^. B promote the Day. (www.uan.org)
The Emergency Animal Rescue Service of the United Animal
.| j Nations promoted Florida's Animal Disaster Preparedness Day.


Hagenll

Hagen's Cove Big Bend is
next up on our list of popular
swimming holes this summer.
So how did we find insight on
this week's swimming
hotspot? We asked the locals
in and around Steinhatchee,
where is the best local place is
to cool off? It seemed as
though everyone's first re-
sponse was "Hagen's Cove".
We found that it was most
popular mainly because it's
conveniently located, right
around the corner. So Where
is Hagen's Cove? This se-
cluded but public getaway is
located approximately ten
miles past Roy's heading out
of Steinhatchee towards
Keaton Beach on Riverside
Dr., take a left at the Hagen's
Cove sign.
It's relaxing waves and
beautiful ocean view were to
be just what we were looking
for! Not only does Hagen's
Cove supply us with a great lit-
tle beach front area for swim-
ming, it also provides its visi-
tors with a two story-covered
observation tower for gazing
out across the ocean. Along
with a small boat ramp there
are two separate pavilions
which make for great little pic-
nic areas. There are also sev-
eral little secluded islands sit-
ting off to the left of the cove
that can easily be reached just
by wading off into the ocean.
So whether you're in an ad-
venturous mood and would

Happenings
By Nathan Vonstein
Youth Director FBC
As our Independence Day has just passed I am reminded
of the original American's. I wonder some times how they
view the forth of July. I wander if they are reminded of the
independence they lost. The Eastern Band of Cherokee has
suffered great loss since the white man has taken over their
country. Time would not permit us to explore all they have
suffered so I want to look at one way. Perhaps the greatest
tragedy the white man has been instrumental in bringing
about is the way the Cherokee people view the Glorious
Gospel. To them the gospel is not Glorious because of the
way they have been treated. The actions of our fore fathers
are greatly responsible for this view. Our actions are very in-
strumental in how people see the Gospel of Christ. Matt. 5;
13 16 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have
lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth
good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden un-
der foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that
is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a can-
dle, and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick; and it
giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light
so shine before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
It was an honor for me to be a part of bringing "saviour"
back to the salt of the Gospel. I am proud to have had a
chance to stand shoulder to shoulder with our youth as they
let their light shine before the Cherokee. We have a youth
that are the genuine article. They chose to serve through
obedience. We are very blessed to6 have a youth group that
is willing to serve.
God did a lot of work in our hearts on the trip. For some
Christ became very real in there hearts. For some they ex-
perienced how to worship God in spirit and in truth. And for
others they bowed before the throne of God and made big
commitments. In all that God is doing in our youths heart
they will need your earnest prayer and support. The devil is
out to snatch away what God has done in their lives so your
continued prayer is greatly needed. Please pray for our
youth that they will allow God to accomplish every good
work he desires with their lives. Also please continue to pray
for the Cherokee people that the darkness will be lifted.
I want to thank the church for all you have done to make
this trip possible. I speak for all of us when I say.
We Love You.


McCrabb Church To Host Speaker


The Bible and Dinosaurs
What does the Bible say
about Dinosaurs? What
about astrology, Fossiliza-
non. and how the secular
World's claims that the Earth
and the Universe are millions
of years old?
In Our World today, "ex-
perts" are constantly telling
us that Dinosaurs roamed
the earth millions of years
ago and that fossilized arti-
facts and carbon dating pro-
cedures are proof.
As Christians, our au-
- Ihority: God's Holy Word-the
Bible tells us that the stars
and the earth are approxi-
mately 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 profes-
sors make these claims with
the authority of their Master
and Doctorate degrees.
What is the truth? And why
doesn't God's word address
these issues?
God's word does! 'And
on Sunday, August 5th, Mc-
Crabb Baptist Church will be
hosting Pastor Tom Baird,
Curator of Noah's Park and
Planetarium located in Mayo,
at the Middle Florida Baptist
Assembly Grounds to ad-
dress these important is-
sues.

Pastor Tom is a Cre-
ationist and his evidence all
comes from God's word, the
Bible. Pastor Tom will be with
the youth of our church and
community at 6 p.m. with
several exhibits and to an-
swer questions and to share
the truth about Creation.
At 7 p.m., 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 constantly 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 wel-
come 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 at-
tend, regardless of church
affiliation or even if you don't
go to church, you'll be wel-
comed. Pastor Bruce Sulli-
van-Romans 10:9-10


FAITH BAPTIST

CHURCH NEWS
Today, was a wonderful day at Faith. Our crowd was
large, we had several visitors, and we even had a new little
man in ourmidst. Daniel and Amy Landrum brought their
new little "Luke" to church today. What a beautiful baby and
family they are. God has really blessed us all at Faith. Bro.
Jackie brought two good messages, the special music was
good as always and we are just so thankful for all His bless-
ings.
I Remember this week to pray for someone less fortunate
than yourself, the sick, the bereaved and the ones in the hos-
pital. Pray for strength for their families as they minister to
them.
Our Awanas will begin again in August. Pray about this
and ask God to show you if you can help in any way with this
program. Invite the little children to come be a part of this
program. It's a wonderful way to teach them about Jesus.
See Bro. Leonard Allen if you feel led to work with the little
ones.
Next Sunday night will be our 5th Sunday night sing. If
you want to sing, play an instrument or take any part in the
sing, let Bro. Kacie know so he can get you on the list.
Remember to invite a friend, neighbor or co-worker to
Sunday School and Church with you. It may just be the invi-
tation they're waiting on to learn about Jesus, and His Love.
If you've been missjnig Sunday School, you.'re.truly missing a.
blessing, so we urge you to get up j6st"onelhour earlier so
you can be in Sunday School at 9:45 a.m. next Sunday. Also,
we still have prayer meeting on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
and we'd love to have you join us. God will bless you fdr it.
Until we meet again, may God watch over you, keep you
healthy, happy and safe and we'll be looking for you to join us
Wednesday night and again for all three services Sunday.


Steinhatchee Baptist

Church news


Are we living for the LORD or are we living for the devil?
We all have to search our own hearts, look deep into our
souls and ask ourselves for that answer. Is it right or is it
wrong? Each of us has to make choices in life! A decision we
make today, could be a mistake tomorrow!
We often make choices in hast or when we are in a hur-
ry. Then it is to late to pray, for the damage is done. Was it
right, or was it wrong? And yes, sometimes we do make the
wrong choice, or wrong decision, but GOD is always there to
see us through! As Christians the LORD controls our hearts,
but the devil is always there causing trouble, heartaches and
heart breaks in our lives! Let's be pure hearted and true, how
about you? Just think about it, can other people see JESUS,
living in you? Be a peace maker! If you are mad or upset with
a friend, a co-worker, sister or brother, a neighbor, members
of your family, then look at Matthew 5:9.
All of chapter 5 in Matthew teaches us how to be
blessed! Life is like a coin.... you can spend it anyway you
choose, but you can only spend it once! Are you making
GOD filled choices in your life? Remember....if your flesh is
for it; then don't do it! Turn away, for the devil is probably be-
hind it! Which kind bof faith do we have today? Is it a waver-
ing faith? Or is it a solid rock faith, in the LORD? Are we do-
ing what is right, acting right, living right, thinking the right
thoughts, walking right and, speaking only GOD filled
words ? Are we worshiping and praying as God would have
us to do? How about you? GOD is working in our lives! Do
you see God is your life? Are we serving GOD the way we
should? Let's search your conscience! Let's not live on the
edge! Don't be a double mined person! Do not fall into the
problems of the devil. Be strong, a solid rock Christian!
TRUST HIM, NO MATTER WHAT! The choice is yours! Are
you going to live for the LORD or the devil? Matthew 11:28
says "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest."
Only He can give us rest for our souls to strengthen us for
the road ahead, as we walk down this pathway of life. Are you
distressed in your journey now? Just lean on HIM. His love
and care are always there to heal your broken heart. We pray
for strength and courage for the weary, and GOD'S own
hand to guide us each. day there is more is for asking,
when we meditate and pray! We are all praying for unity of
hearts, one purpose, one goal and one belief in JESUS
CHRIST! When we look around, see all the good things
around us, we are so blessed.
GOD has done so much for all of us. How can we not fol-
low HIS will? We are so un-worthy of GOD'S love. If we just
stop, look up, keep our eyes on GOD, not on the devils
deeds, then we can grow. Just forget the negative things all
around us and focus only on the positive, true and GOD filled


Things.
Yes. we have so much to be thankful for! Give it to GOD!
Leave all your burdens and worries at the alter! GOD will do
the rest and you will truly be blessed!
I Lot's of love, hugs and smiles!

Pathways To Faith


LYDIA BAPTIST

CHURCH NEWS
Thank you, Gra-
cious God, for the
bountiful nourish-
ment you provide!
Many in our Lydia
congregation have
brought us delicious ..
vegetables from ,,
their abundant gar- -
dens. Thank you to 1 ['.l i
all who have shared .
their wonderful
home grown produce with us. Appropriately, as always our
own Lydia Quartet sang "We Need to Thank God"! Yes, we
do!
In the children's message Ms. Elaine Hines stressed the
importance of being prepared for any task we undertake. If
we are not well prepared, we will suffer the consequences.
Do we live our lives in preparation-for eternity? The last line
of a wonderful old hymn says "Oh How sad to face the judge-
ment unprepared to meet thy God".
Pastor Wayne Allen's message from Jeremiah 33:6 de-
scribed how people want a cure to solve the worlds problems
But they always look for a cure in science or education or
medicine. There is only one cure for the sin of the world-Je-
sus! God gave us freedom of choice and we often make bad
choices that are unfair to God, so our lives become toxic.
Only Jesus can press the delete key to eradicate all the trash
from our lives, we cannot delete it in our own.
Please plan to join us next Sunday morning, July 29th, as
musicians "Southern Grace" will present a service of worship
and songs of praise.
At 7 p.m. on Sunday evening, July 29th, we will have our
monthly "sing". We invite everyone to come and sing with us,
or just come to listen to the many songs of praise.
Apologies for the two week Gap in our newsletter: We
understand the Advocate has experienced changes and al-
though we turned in news, it didn't run.
Remember, at Lydia-everybody is somebody and Christ
is everything!

New Prospect

Church News
What a joy it was to be in God's house again Sunday!
Our choir and musicians did their usual fine job, after which
Bro. Jody blessed us with a special song...good job, Bro.
Jody! With God's inspiration, Bro. Billy then brought a very
tirrely and squl-stirring message from Isaiah 58:1-2.. For the
evening message, he again selected excerpts from the vision
of Jsaiah the Prophet, choosing his text from Chapter 43,
verse 10.
In regard to the Care packages being sent by Bro. Pat's
class to our service men and women, Bro. Pat reports that
the class recently received a letter of deep appreciation from
one of the groups in Afghanistan for the needed items, which
they received, bolstering the class's resolve to continue the
good work which they're accomplishing. In other church
news, there will be a Community Sing at New Prospect on
Saturday, July 28th, at 6 p:m. If you like good Gospel music,
come on out and join in, or just sit back and listen...you won't
be disappointed!
We were blessed with visitors again Sunday, and invite
you back anytime...visitors are always welcome at NPBC!
The prayer lists are still extensive, so please be in prayer for
all those listed, plus our President and other leaders, and the
people in our armed forces. Have a good week, and may
God bless and keep you.,

Christ Go With You Fr. Kurian
Holy Cross Catholic Mission parishioners would like to
bid a fond farewell to our pastor Fr. Kurian Nediakala. He has
been the pastor of St. John the Evangelist in Chiefland & Holy
Cross Mission since November 2005 and will be leaving us
the end of this month to return to his home in India.
Fr. Kurian, even though you are leaving us; we know
you'll be happy spreading the Word of God in your homeland.
We pray the Holy Spirit be with you each day, be your
teacher, your guide, your counselor, your friend. May He fill
you with His gifts, especially the gifts of wisdom, discernment,
knowledge, understanding, compassion, love, and awe in
God's presence? In all that you think, say, and do, let it be in
accordance with His most holy and perfect will. We ask this
in Jesus' Name. Amen."


The Word Made Flesh

"The Woman Brought Forth From Man"


I, the son of man, say "The head of every man is Christ."
(1 Cor 11:3) As Paul deals with the positions of man and
woman, he touches upon some very important factors. The
head of every man is Christ. This immediately cuts right into
the core of the matter, man is not his own head. "I know that
the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walketh
to direct his steps." (Jer. 10:23)
"For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord,
and He pondereth all his goings." (Proverbs 5:21) The steps
of a man are ordered by the Lord.(Pslm 37:23) "The natural
man fells that he is "boss", the master of his fats, that he
makes the choices and decided things relative to his future,
but whether he know it or not whether he submissively bowe
to the will of God, or not, still God rules and over-rules the
plans of man to the fulfillment of His own will and counsel.
Even if man rebels and thinks he is going his own way, still
"the lot is cast into the lap: BUT THE WHOLE DISPOSING
THEREOF IS OF THE Lord." (Proverbs 16:33)
Now, while it is true that man's actions are controlledby
God, yet it is also true that man is free to now yield his own
mind to either the spirit of the world or to the pure spirit of
God, for the gendering of his thoughts. And it is also true that
we shall be judged not for these outward actions so much as
it will be for THE INNER MOTIVATION. "For as a man thin-
keth in his hearts, so is he." (Proverbs 23:7)


While the headship over man IS CHRIST, and man must
be led of the spirit in all things, there is also the exercising of
headshipp" by man, for "the head of the woman is the man."
(1 Cor 1.1:3) Again we find, that Paul is dealing with some very
important things as he relates this matter of being the "head"
to our living in natural life.
Remember, we are placed upon earth, in these physical
bodies, for the travail and exercise which is given unto us for
our development. Thus each spirit placed BY GOD in the
body of masculine gender is to be exercised and dealt with
by those requirements placed upon the male of the species.
I, the son of man, say some men seek to shirk the responsi-
bilities belonging to man. Especially do we see in our gener-
ation those individuals which will not accept their position of
headship, but matter by their weakness they force the
woman to assume the place of authority and make the deci-
sions, etc.
Such men shall be thoroughly dealt with by God, in due
time, for they shall discover that to rebel against filling the po-
sitions that belong to manhood, they are actually rebelling
against God who placed them in a masculine body. Submis-
siveness to the will of God, and accepting Christ as their
HEAD, will also cause man to accept the position which God
arranged for him. Love you.

Behold the Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3


Continued from last
week... Heaven is not made
up of angels created from the
beginning. Hell did not origi-
nate in any devil created an-
gel of light and cast down
from Heaven. But both Heav-
en and hell are from the hu-
man race. Heaven from
those who are in the love of
good and of truth; hell from
those who are in the love of
evil and false. Heaven is an
abiding with the Lord to eter-
nity. The Lord's end in cre-
ation is His Divine provi-
dence. Divine love, the Di-
vine providence have a
Heaven consisting of men.
The likeness in man is love
and the image in man is wis-
dom. And the Lord in them is
love united to wisdom and
wisdom united to love. This is
good united to truth, and truth
united to good. We are be-
cause God is.
The infinite in itself and
the eternal in itself is the
same as the Divine. The Infi-
nite and Eternal in itself must
needs look to what is infinit
from itself in things finite. An
image of the Infinite is pre-
sented in an angelic Heaven
from a saved human race.
This angelic Heaven is be-
fore the Lord as one man
which is an image of Himself.
Heaven is granted only to
those who know the way to it
and walk in that way. And that
way can to some extent .be
known by knowing the char-
acter of those who constitute
Heaven.
No one becomes and an-
gel, that is comes into Heav-
en, unless they carry with
them from the world that is
angelic. A knowledge of the
way from walking in it. In the
spiritual world, there are ways
to lead to every society of

Heaven, and to every society
of hell; and each one as if
from himself sees his own
way. We will see it because
there is a way for every -
love; love opens the way
and leads you

place.
An
angel is -,
nothing
but Heav-
enly love; '
if not you
would have not
seen the way lead-
ing to Heaven. Heaven is
nothing but the love of all af-
fections of good of truth. The


Lord is love and widom itself.
So the angelic Heaven is the
image of the Lord. Di-
vine love and Divine
wisdom is the
form of man.
The entire

Heav-
en is as one
man, so Heaven is di-
vided into societies, as there
are -organs, viscera, and

So you see what Heaven
is, and the Lord is that man
and Heaven is His image, so
you see to be in Heaven is
called. In the first man we all
died, but in the second man
we are coming back. Since
creation man has been a
Heaven in the least form,
everyone that goes to Heav-
en is prepared for his own
place, every angel man
when he leaves this world is
assigned to his place. In my
Father's house are many
mansions. (Adobe) (John
14:12) Love you.

Todays Joke

An elderly Floridian called
911 on her cell phone to report
that her car has been broken
into. She was hysterical as she
explained to the dispatcher:
'They've stolen the stereo, the
steering wheel, the brake pedal
and even the accelerator!"
The dispatcher said, "Stay
calm. An officer is on the way."
A few minutes later, the offi-
cer radioed in: "Disregard. She
got in the back-seat by mis-
take."

Bobby Bowden Must Still


Live Up To His Own Legend

By Buddy Martin

There's not much we don't already know about Bobby Bowden, who enters his 32nd season at
Florida State and embattled-but-revered coach of the Seminoles after 378 games, 293 wins and
31 years.
In 1976 when Bowden left West Virginia to take the reins in Tallahassee, "Son of Sam" killed his
first victim in New York City, Patty Hearst was sentenced to seven years for her role in a 1974
bank robbery and Jimmy Carter would defeat incumbent Gerald Ford as president.
A lot has changed since then, not the least of which Bowden would become the all-time win-
ningest college football coach (366 victories) as the balance of power shifted in college football.
The State of Florida was about to become a force in the next decade. FSU would be part of that
Sunshine State troika which became dominant, as the Seminoles would bring home two national
championships during Bowden's tenure.
Deservedly, Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame this weekend.
They even changed the rules of induction so. that he could be honored while he was still alive.
The 77-year-old coach was scheduled to go in with his venerable colleague, Joe Paterno of Penn
State, but JoePa needed the time to mend a broken leg suffered on the sidelines last year.
As for what we may not know about Bowden, some of you might not have known the middle
name of Robert Cleckler Bowden. Others might not have known that when he took over at Florida
State, Bowden inherited a team that had won just four games the previous three seasons.
What we're going to learn about him this fall, however, is whether he's still got it at age 77 (78 in
November) as the Seminoles try to bounce back from a 7-6 record in 2006, Bowden's worst sea-
son since the 6-5 in 1981.
To accommodate that effort, Bowden has ramped up with an all-new offensive his coaching
staff Jimbo Fisher, Rick Trickett and Dexter Carter and Lawrence Dawsey on offense. And, he
added ex-linebackers coach Chuck Amato on defense.
There's already a bronze statute of Bowden outside Doak Campbell Stadium and now he's in
the Hall of Fame. Yet, this living legend has a lot to live up to in 2007.

Quick Jump Starts
And while we're at it, congratulations to Florida's Emmitt Smith and FSU's Charlie Ward for their
College Football Hall of Fame induction Saturday as well.
Jon Gruden being to quarterbacks what Imelda Marcus was to shoes, he's liable to go after
Daunte Culpepper, which would make No. 7.
There's something just wrong about seeing Sergio Garcia with a bell putter when he's only 27.
It won't be Commissioner Roger Goodell or Falcons owner Arthur Blank that put the hammer
down on Michael Vick it'll be the SPCA or PETA folks organizing a boycott against him.
Despite signing a paper stating they would never sell them, already there are three 2007 cham-
pionship (National, BCS and SEC) rings on E-Bay thanks to an unidentified Florida Gator player,
priced at $7,500 total.

FOREST
continued from Page 1

forest product companies are increasingly being pur-
chased by Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and
Timberland Investment Management Companies (TIM-
Os). The influx of investment capital into the market in
the last few years due to the lackluster returns available
elsewhere have driven the timberland market into what
some experts say is a "bubble" similar to the one being
experienced by the residential sector. Investors are look-
ing at historical returns data and seeing better-than-av-
erage returns in the timber industry, but the prices be-
ing paid for most of the property currently being sold is
too high to support those rates of return.
The Campbell Group is one of the country's largest
forest management companies, currently controlling 1.6
billion dollars in assets. The price for the Forest Sys-
tems sale has not been made public. The deal is expect-
ed to close by the end of summer.

Clark
continued from Page 1
The United States.
On February 27,1901 in
the town of Lumpkin,
Georgia, Clifford Clark-
was born. Mr. Clark was
the second oldest, having 2
sisters and 3 brothers.
When the family was re-
cently interviewed, they
lovingly spoke of Clifford's
life. For example, Clifford
had a hard childhood, he
starting work at the age of
9. His first work consisted
of working on Day's Farm:
milking cows, cooking and
anything else that had
been needed. His pay was
$1.25/week. After each pay
4ay, Clifford would run
home and give his mother
the pay to help the family.
His mother would never
take all of the money, she
would always make sure to
give Clifford 25 cents, and
tell him to save it, so he
could have something that
he needed or, wanted one
day. Clifford accepted this.
When Clifford was in
his early 20's, he and his
family decided they need-
ed a change for the better,
so they moved to Dixie
County, Florida. Some of
the family stayed longer
than others, but Clifford
stayed the longest. He
stayed 86 years!
I In 1922 he married
,Mary Etta Harvey. And
would eventually have 4
children and have 13
grandchildren. Working
hard to take care of his
family, Clifford took his
first job in Dixie County,
dipping turpentine. By the
end of the 1950's, Clifford
opened his own business
as a Pulpwood Contractor.
After having his own busi-
ness for a while he decided
to work for Continental
Turpentine Rosin Compa-
ny, which he worked until
he retired at 75 years of
age.
After retirement, his
biggest joy was watching
boxing, sitting on his front
porch and listening to
country music. His family
Oays he just loved it!
106 years in a life time
will bring all too many
changes, experiences and
wisdom. This man seemed
to have had it all. From re-
membering the day the Ti-
tanic sank all the way to
the first airplane soaring
to the sky, Clifford was
there. To think of all of the
growth and technology the
world has experienced in
recent years it is no won-
der Clifford loved to share
all that he has seen and
heard in his life time.
He will be greatly missed.
But his memory will live
on forever.


even? I understand that
we all like bargains BUT is
it REALLY a bargain not
to purchase your fuel in
the county in which you
live and travel?
Several more road
repaving projects will be-
gin as early as next week.
For example: CR 353 is be-
ginning this week, CR 358
Loop (Old 19) and CR 358
South (Jena Rd.). These
projects are approximate-
ly 5.5 million dollars in
cost, approved through the
Small County Grant Pro-
grams. Also approved for
this years grant program
are 1) CR 351 from Higgin-
botham store to McCrabb
Church, 2) Veteran's Road
from US 19 to Cross City
Correctional Institution,
3) Spiller's Road, and
4)Gronto Springs Road
from SR 349 to the end of
the pavement. Mr. Bellot
comments: "We are very
pleased and grateful for
these important grants to
help keep our local road-
way system upgraded."


Dixie Sportsman Outdoor Expo

To Be Held September 15th

Mark your calendar now for the first annual Dixie Sports-
man Outdoor Expo to be held Saturday, September 15, 2007.
The event will be held on the banks of the beautiful
Suwannee River, just north of Old Town at the old "KOA
Campground," about 1.5 miles north of U.S. 19 on SR 349.
If you love the outdoors, this year's family oriented Expo
will surely be what you're looking for and will include numer-
ous activities, contests, games, exhibits, music, vendor dis-
plays, a free evening BBQ meal and a chance to hear a word
from C'Mere Deer and Delta Ag Wildlife spokesperson, Al
Stone. Once you have registered for this free event, you'll be

including a Kawasaki four-wheeler. Activities include an
archery contest, goat ropin, redneck. Olympics, and catfish
lasso to name just a few of the events.

and it's easy. This event is similar to the highly successful
Outdoor Expo held in Branford for the past three years., In
fact, Robert Bradow, founder of Cross Heir Outfitters and
event organizer in Branford will be an integral part of the Dix-
ie Expo, providing the stage, sound and cooking equipment
all neatly packaged in a huge camouflaged enclosed trailer
designed specifically for the touring ministry to share inspira-
tional messages and family togetherness through outdoor ac-
tivities.
Gates open to the event at 10 a.m. and you can register
then, but you can save time with early registration, available
soon. Keep watching your local newspaper for a registration
form or register on-line at www.crosshiroutffittor.org (if you

event, please call 352-498-5107 for more information.
- The Dixie Sportsman Outdoor Expo is being sponsored
by Dixie County area Churches.


DIXIEE SIGHTING
TOO CLOSE TO HOMEIII When I went out the back
door of our house on Governor Hill (used to be Lake
here) and started to go down the 3 steps, I realized the
snake was at the foot of the stairs! Fortunately, my hus-
band, John, was within hearing distance when I yelled
for his help. I kept track of the nake's slow movement
-by the house while John went after his .22. It took 3
shots to stop the snake from getting away. I was thank-
ful, too, that our little 9# Poodle did NOT follow me out
the door, like he usually does in a big hurry. The snake
measured 4 1/2 feet and according to our neighbor, it
was a female Rattler. I hope I never encounter another

Farewell to our brother.

Tom left us last Saturday morning in
the loving care of Haven Hospice
Care Center in Chiefland FI.

Tom was a lover of nature and all it's
wonderment, including his dear
friends. He will be missed by all.

Please have your own memorial in
honor of our brother.

Go outside, light a candle, and when
the time is right, recite one of your
favorite "Tommy Stories" He will get
a big kick out of that!


If you are able, any donation, large
or small will make a big difference to
E.T. York Haven Hospice Care
Center,located at 4200 NW 90th Blvd,

Smooth Sailing Ahead

For Local Crab Rancher


By Katherine McKinney

Capo's Crab Ranch. Live Crabs. You Catch. The intriguing sign
beckons from CR 351 North of Cross City, promising an unusual expe-
rience. What exactly is a crab ranch, and what is one doing out in
rural Dixie County, miles from water?

When she's not teaching school, Kathy
Capo is a professional blue crab ranch- ..
er. She's a rancher, not a farmer, be-,
cause she doesn't breed and raise the, ,
crabs; she gathers them in traps and
then begins the painstaking process of ( .
waiting for the crabs to molt. Large ,
soft-shell crabs can bring as much as
$2.50 each, and during peak season, she
may be caring for as many as 4800
crabs.

The blue crab, callinectes sapidus, or
"beautiful savory swimmer" has five' ''
sets of legs and are found in shallow ''
water along the Gulf and Atlantic ,
coasts. They are most active in the
spring and summer, and move into
deeper water to semi-hibernate during
the winter. Ms. Capo sells the whole
crabs live or frozen, mostly to whole-
sale markets and locals.

According to Ms. Capo, "What hurts
the Florida crab industry the most is
the low-quality imports from Indonesia
and China." Full-time crabbers also
suffer from the part-time dabblers who
are mostly "moonlighting" to supple-


ment another source of income. The new Blue Crab Effort Manage-
ment Program seeks to protect full-time industry members like Ms.
Capo by requiring separate endorsements for hard crabs and soft-
shell crab fisheries, trap tags, and limiting the number of traps and
crabs that can be taken. Unlike clams, leases of crab endorsements
will not be permitted. Anyone wishing to enter the commercial crab
market must buy an endorsement and work at least 14 days under an-
other holder's vessel.

Capo's Crab Ranch is located approximately five miles north of Cross
City on CR 351 north, and is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays
to the public.
