The Facts Behind

Dixie s Four

Headed Swamp

Cabbage
By Kim Lander
DCA Staff Writer
since the Advocate staff in-
advertantly left off the
"Home of the Four Head-
ed Cabbage" from our
masthead a few weeks ago, the
public was very concerned. The
citizens of Dixie County are very
proud to have the world's only
known four headed cabbage tree
right here in Dixie County.
The Advocate decided to find
out how the old Four Headed Cab-
bage tree was getting along. We
contacted owner David. Cannon.
During an interview, we found out
that the cabbage, tree is alive and
well. We also discovered the ori-
gin of this enigma.
In the early 1990's on a .Satur-
day afternoon, Timmy Cannon
was trying to roost a turkey He
was at an area called Dimmer
Bridge Run in California Swamp

non's (Cedar Man's) camp, off

bright, cheerful, and func-


tional. "Thanks to the County Commis-
sioners, the Clerk's Office finally has suf-
ficient space for staff and records," said
Clerk of Court Dana Johnson. The office
is now in three separate divisions; one for,
recording, child support, probate, circuit
and juvenile matters, a finance office that
handles tax deeds and a secretary to the
County Commission, and a third that


handles traffic issues,felony and misde-
meanors, and small claims court.
All three offices will now be open from
8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will remain open
throughout lunchtime in order to better
accommodate the needs of county resi-
dents.

Congress Have The Best Medical, Drug, Hospitalization, Retirement Plan In America


To Whom It May Concern:
As we all know, our members of Congress have the
best medical, drug, hospitalization, and retirement plan
in America; or even the best known to the free world, I
expect.
That leaves the rest of us (especially those disabled,
and/or retired on a fixed income) to go scratch for some
way to pay the mounting cost of our medical bills.
I received a statement from Social Security that
states the allowance for an American to live comfortably
on is $240.00 per month. If that is the case, it is no won-
der .that Reagan & Poppa Bush's committees said, "We
have no homeless. If the people are on the street, they

S Water was applied to the smoking areas and heavy
equipment was brought in to dig down approximately
six feet to the sand layer in order to ensure that the fire

^The acre-sized area involved in the fire is covered
with approximately six feet of "duff," primarily a mix-
ture of wood chips and mulch. The source of the wood
products was unknown. Mike Gantt, from Dixie County
Emergency Services, stated that "We expect the fire to
continue until we get at least an inch of rain or so. We'll
be checking back every day.until it's completely out."
The owner of the damaged site was undetermined at
the time of the fire. No structures were endangered, and
there was no damage to neighboring properties.

August is primarily a wet hot month good for main-
tenance of shrubs and trees. Despite its unappealing hu-
midity, it is a busy month for seed planting and getting
those veggies going before fall sets in. Even though it is
SUPPOSE to rain a bunch, do not let your guard down
on your new plants and transplants as they still need
daily water to stay healthy Just like people, TLC applied
in large quantities is a good habit to practice.
If you are into veggies, your best bets to plant this
month are collards, turnips, sweet corn, cukes, maters,
peppers,squash and pumpkins. Herbs like: bay, parsley,
sage, rosemary and thyme can be fun to grow so you can
add some spice to your favorite dishes.
If Roses are your interest, a few helpful hints to
make your success rate soar: A. Roses like moist, not
wet, nor dry soil. If you keep, them hi a potinstead of in
the. ground, check them daily fpor: moisture as just the
flowing air and breeze will speed up th, wa}tery.o-
sumption. B.Water roses early in the day and avoid get-
ting the leaves wet whenever possible. Wet foilage will
invite fungus and the ever dreaded black spot rose lovers
hate. C. Use the pruning rule of cutting off no more than
one third of any cane(main branch) at a time for best
growth and bud development. D. Plan your blooms for
the fall. Newly trimmed branches require about 8-10
weeks to push out new blooms under normal circum-
stances.
If you want to try your hand at collecting seeds for
next year, August provides many flowers like salvia, ru-
ellia, butterfly milkweed, and gerbera daisies to name a
few to get you started. Remember to air dry your collec-
tion for a few days before storing them in the frig or oth-
er cool place. Newly packaged seeds normally arrive on
the shelves this month in Florida. Be careful of the ex-
piration dates before you buy
All this garden talk behind us: now go find your fa-
vorite cool drink, your secret shady spot in the yard,
catch a breeze when you can and ENJOY your garden.

It was around noon, on June 20th and Old Town res-
ident Rick Stevenson was traveling North on US 19
when he witnessed a Taylor County Deputy lose control
of his vehicle. After the dust had settled Mr. Stevenson
saw that the police vehicle was aflame. He inummnediately
stopped his truck and hurried to the officer's aid.
Upon arriving he found Deputy Thompson still in-
side. the burning car. Stevenson forced open the door of
the cruiser and dragged the officer to safety before the
flames could engulf the cab. Captain Toles of the Taylor
County Sheriffs Department said "If Stevenson had not


pulled him from the car, Deputy Thompson probably
wouldn't be with us today" Deputy Thompson was en-
route to a call on the South end of Taylor County when
the accident occurred approximately five miles south of
the Perry city limits.
The Deputy has been assigned light duty, pending re-
covery from internal bruising suffered in the collision.
Stevenson is to be awarded a plaque in honor of his
heroic rescue during the festivities at the fish fry at
South Side Park in Perry on Thursday, August 2nd, at 7
p.m.


Bronson Deploys Inspectors To

For Recalled Food Products


Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services
'Comm i sioner Charles H.
Bronson announced that
his department is intensi-
fying efforts to assist fed-
eral regulators in search-
ing for and removing from
store shelves food prod-
ucts recalled by Castleber-
ry's Food Company a week
ago.
Despite efforts by the
Georgia company, the
FDA and U.S. Department
of Agriculture to remove
the more than 90 different
canned meats, chili sauces
and other canned prod-.
ucts subject to the nation-
wide recall because of po-
tential botulism poison-
ing, Bronson said inspec-
tors in his Food Safety Di-
vision are continuing to
find the recalled products
on store shelves.


As a result, inspectors
will be concentrating in
"the coming days to make
sure that none of those
products (listed at
http://.www.fda.gov/oc/po
/firmrecalls/castleber-
ry207_07.html) remain in
stores by questioning
store personnel on
whether their establish-
ments carry any of
Casteleberry's products
and searching store
shelves themselves for the
potentially tainted food
products.
Bronson said he will
also dispatch inspectors to
flea markets over the
weekend to search for the
recalled products as many
flea. markets typically car-
ry low-cost food items, in-
cluding canned goods.
At the same time,
Bronson and federal au-


thorities stress that
Castleberry products al-
ready purchased by con-
sumers should not be, eat-
en.
"It is critical that none
of these products are pur-
chased or consumed,"
Bronson said. "Botulism
is a serious threat as the
illness it triggers can
cause paralysis, respirato-
ry failure and even
death."
According to the FDA,
botulism is a rare but seri-
ous paralytic illness
caused by a nerve toxin.
Symptoms include double
vision, blurred vision,
slurred speech, difficulty
swallowing and muscle
weakness. In the most ex-
treme cases, it can cause
respiratory failure and
even death.
The FDA recommends
that if consumers find
any of the potentially
tainted products in their
homes, they should dou-
ble bag the cans and
throw them away.
In addition to the
more than 90 canned
meats, chili sauces and
other food products being
recalled, there are also
four pet food products in-
cluded in the recall.

MA t Bob Leichner graduates with Associates of Arts


STUDENT OF THE WEEK


Bob Leichner, owner of the. Dixie Music Center, and
avid musician, graduated with an Associates of Arts de-
gree in Liberal Arts and Sciences from Lake City Com-
munity College on May 4, 2007. Although he made the
decision in the 60's to drop out of High School, in 2000
he made it his New Years resolution to pursue his long
postponed degree. Leichner says that the way LCCC is
set up for night classes made it a very convenient for
him to attend both his business, and his higher educa-
tion. Leichner also told us that he was able to take all of
his classes, with one exception, online. In '02 he was ac-
cepted into the Phi Theta Kappa society, following it up
in '03 by making the National Dean's List. Later, in 2005
he was inducted into the "Who's Who Among Commu-
nity College Students," and in '06 was in "Who's Who
Among American Junior College Students." Leichner
graduated Summa Cum Laude. Since then, he has been
accepted by the USF in Tampa, and has had invites from
Columbia, UNC, and Tulane.

Springhouse Quilter's News:


Springhouse quilters have been staying very busy
finishing up some of the quilting projects that will be
used in the October Quilt Show.
It is anticipated that there will be approximately 150
quilts on display during the show on October 26 27.
Other quilters are being invited to enter their complet-
ed quilts to give the show some extra techniques and
some very special quilts for the public to view. There
will be a viewer's choice ballot so that visitors to the
'show will have an opportunity to select the one quilt
they think is the best in the show. During the 2005 quilt
show, Helen Seigel of Citrus County won the viewer's
choice.
A certified quilt judge has been acquired for the
show Kathy Ward of Palm Beach. This will be the first
time for Kathy to judge a show in this area. Kathy has
been quiltmaking since 1985, teaching since 1986, and
judging since 1991.She has judged shows from 10 to 400
items so her experience is extensive and varied. The
judging will take place a few days before the show so the
winning ribbons for each category can be placed on
each quilt winning a place in the judging event.
Springhouse Quilters will be meeting again on Au-
gust 14, beginning at 9 a.m.
Mary Rawlins, First Vice President, will be presid-
ing since Jan will be not be available for the meeting.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Mary
Rawling, 490-7401 or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

CITY CONSIDERS

GARBAGE CHANGES


City garbage fees may increase if a new contract
with WastePro is approved. After ten years at current
the current fee level, increases in fuel costs and operat-
ing costs are forcing the City Council to reconsider costs
to residents when renegotiating waste removal con-
tracts,
"We have to pass through our cost from our contrac-
tor," stated Mike Cassidy, City Manager, "We have the
option of charging customers a much higher annual fee
or of spreading it out over five years. Our goal is to
make the fee decrease each year, with maybe no fee at all
in the fourth or fifth year." The estimated increase
would be approximately $5per month.
The increase in fees would allow residents to contin-
ue with two garbage pickups per week. An additional
measure being considered is a garbage bin leasing pro-
gram that would require residents to lease 96 gallon
rolling containers from WastePro for approximately
$1.50 per month. The bins would decrease costs by pre-
venting workman's compensation issues due to the dif-
ficulty the workers have in lifting heavy items out of
home-made bins. "The bins are animal-proof and in-
crease the attractiveness of city streets," according to
Cassidy "The bin fee is substantially less than buying
rolling garbage cans at Wal-Mart and WastePro -will re-
place or repair any bin with no additional cost through-
*, out the lease period, saving residents money over time."
Proposed changes are tentative and are not sched-
. uled for approval until September or October. A new
city Ordinance will be required at that time and will be
S publicized that citizen- may commeniit

Memory

Come down from heaven,
Mother and Father dear,
From your fluffy white cloud
And take away my tears.

I miss you both so,
As do the boys.
Things haven't been the same,
There's much less joy,

Snatched from our lives
By health and hazard
Some act like
it doesn't matter.

Do I torgi[e them though,
Take the hate from my heart
For making them
Levae us apart

As I go through this life.
Doing the best that I can do.
It's so hard to make these decisions,
So hard without you t~o.

I never pictured it all
Like this. this wk.ay
Without my mother and father
To help me along the way.

I hope as you look down
Upon me from above
That I have done my best
With all my heart and all my love

So all I ask
Mother and Father dear,
Is that you look after me, us
As the days turn into
Months and years

Love Always,
Kamina, Jeremiah. Jason,
James, Joseph. Jonathan and
all your grandchildren

Well, Bobbi and I were thinking of you, and praying
for you, so I thought I'd send this update to let you know
what is going on with us. It has been too long since we
had the chance to share. In addition, we wanted to say
that we both are looking to the time we get to spend
some time with you. Really, time is the most valuable
thing we have! It is the special thing that is limited for
all of us, so it really is special when someone finds it in
thier heart to spend some with us!

tinue togrow Suwannee Fellowship, and we think
, the Lord is going to cause you and all

gether to make it grow. It is(
amazing the people that have
a buzz in thier brain to be in-
volved in this great church
right now.There are business
people, executives and wonder-
ful hearts full of tremendous
ideas for making the church
grow. We thought we would
share a bit of what God is doing,
and ask you to pray about being
involved, and see how you may be
able to help out:

tional churches. We'll get every
room available in Suwannee, and
maybe even some houseboats for
;. ,, a women's meeting you'll never,
ever forget! Plan for the time
off, save a few dollars for the
modest costs involved and
4 watch for the details! There
is no way you'll want to miss
this!
April 27; Ressurection
Sunday Celebration!
May 11; Mother's Day /
Pentecost Sunday Camp
Meeting! For Mother's'Day,
., its our annual "Family Re-
union at Church with Cov-
ered Dish Dinner on the
Grounds" kicking off a week of Pen-
tecost Camp Meeting with great preaching, music and
powerful Spirit ministry! Get Mom and family on board
nrow for this -wonderful family event. Rooms and meals
will be available for our "out of town" guests for a mod-
est cost! International visitors should plan to arrange
for thier VISAS NOW!
2. We have begun "Master Planning" the property
here at the church for growth! Our leaders have been
praying about moving into the first phase of our master
plan by beginning the development of the property for
RV Camping. Creating a Christian Retreat / Camp-
ground will not be easy; but with your help.and God's
blessing, it will be wonderful! Imagine a mini-Christian
community right here on the church grounds made up
of believers from everywhere! Think of the fun, fellow-
ship and ministry opportunities that will come with
that! To do anything for the Lord, it takes leaders, and I
need YOUR help! Pray about that, please? Honestly, I
need prayer and leaders more than anything!
3. We are looking at the purchase of a comfortable
mini-bus to ta;;oijrseldiGrs and youth toevents every-
where.A ntimp&sof emergency.,well use ittetakeour se-
niors and neighbors to safety! The seniors can go to
shopping and to lunch together along with other great.
events, and youth will enjoy it for thier functions too. I
will be bidding on one of them in a bus auction on Au-
gust 13. Please consider a gift to help us make a pur-
chase. Right now, we have $3,750. in pledges. We need
about $6,000. See what you can do to help out!
Really, there are three things you can help us with:
First, we need your leadership and help to make all this
planning a success! Your attendance at our events, and
inviting your friends will help too! Second, we need your
prayers! It is not easy for a few to pull a frieght train, but
with you we will! Third, we need your financial help.
The church is in the black (Praise God); we meet all our
obligations, but we do need help to grow, and advance
the vision God has given us. We're asking you to look at
your financial picture to help us in one or both of the
following ways: See if there is something more you can
do on a regular basis to increase the budget of the
church for the "Normal" operating expenses; or see if
you can help us do some on these expensive growth
steps we need to do to "prime the pump" for growth! Lis-
ten, God does not want you to give what you cannot or do
not have, but He does ask us to share what we can. Give
something today! Call me; I'll tell you how!
Finally, God said in the service today, "Be opened"!
Bobbi and I believe He means to be ready for new things
to come to your life, and be ready for wonderful new op-
poritunities. We believe all that is going on today pre-
sents great opportunities to reap and share God's best.
Look for that in your life. Bobbi and I are praying for
God's best for you!
I want to remind you of two things: First remember
this scripture, "Consider now; for the LORD has chosen
you to build a house for the sanctuary: BE STRONG,
AND DO IT." 1 Chronicles 28:10 (KJV Bold Uppercase
Emphasis Added).
Second, keep the faith and remember, God says for
2007, "Light the fire again!

Pathways To Faith


LYDIA BAPTIST


CHURCH NEWS

Lydia was filled
with the Holy Spirit
last Sunday as the
gospel group "South-
ern Grace," from
Mulberry, presented
a program of beauti- -
ful worship songs: !
great voices raised in
praise to God's glory
Pastor Wayne I,
Allen's message, -'- ''
from I Corinthians 11:28, challenged us to EXAMINE
our lives. Are we living the way God wants us to live?
Self-examination is necessary in everything we do. Is
God first and foremost in our lives? Do we work hard
enough towards pleasing Him, or do we just blunder
about in a self-absorbed trance? God is the potter and we
are the clay Every time we choose self-destructive be-
havior and fall, He carefully picks up the pieces and pa-
tiently begins remolding us. Isn't it time we made our-
selves useful to God?
The Holy Spirit blessed us yet again on Sunday
evening during our "sing." Numerous participants all
to the glory of the Lord, sang joyful songs of heartfelt
praise.
Please join us next Sunday August 5th for a delicious
breakfast at 9 a.m. We'll have lots of wonderful food!
Our Sunday school begins at 9:45 a.m. and worship ser-
vice at 11 a.m. Sunday evening Bible study is at 6 p.m.
and worship at 7 p.m. ,
Remember, at Lydia, everybody is somebody and
Christ is everything.

First Baptist Church

A special thank you to
our visiting, Pastor Curtis

There' were 40-50 folks
from Firs' BAptist that

gia! About 60 attended
from Steinhatchee, travel-
ing at different times, in
the various services!
We praise GOD for the
traveling safety for the en-
tire week! It was a blessed
time of listening, learn-
ing, living and leaning on
the word of GOD, with oth-
er Christians. One night
there were 49 pastors
there! What a GOD filled,
up lifting and inspirition-
al week for all!
We are sending our
love and prayers to the
folks on our prayer list :
Joey Widdon, Joe Hall,
Mark Thornton, Al
Williams, Richard
Carmichael, Karen Paign,
Amber Sellers, Jim Hunt
and Tony Mc Kinney He-
brews 13:5 says, I will nev-
er leave you nor forsake
you. Those are great
promises to depend on
when we start to worry
about the future! We may
not know what the future
holds, but we can trust the
ONE who holds the future!
Ok, teens and young
people come on out to our
"gym jam" this Friday
night out at the church
gym. Come join us for an
awesome time in the
LORD! This is the Friday
night place to be! We had
two specials in song, dur-
ing the Sunday morning
service. Thank you to
Stephen Reed, Derek Kara-
george and Timothy Hold-
en, singing "Amazing
Grace". Then singing, "
There is a Fountain" was
Donnie Morrow and Timo-
thy Holden.
We honored our youth
Sunday evening. Begin-
ning with a video of their
church camp at Fort Bluff
, at Dayton, Tennessee. We
were blessed with two of
our youth preaching Sun-
day evening.
Thomas Brown, was
preaching for the first


time! What a message!
Maybe GOD is calling him
to preach! Then Timothy
Holden preached too. Kyle
Welsh did the announce-
ments. At the piano was
Brent Hoffman and Leon
Holden leading the music.
All the youth sang a song
of pr aise. With Libby Mor-
Todw;Nancy Einery and Jes'
sica Downey singing "Be-
cause HE loves me". There
was a "youth appreciation"
fellowship afterwards in
the social hall! It was yum-
my-for-my-tummy!

is the oldest daughter of
Pastor Curtis and Judy
. White! Leon is the oldest
son of Pastor Leon and
Sarah Holden. We thank'
GOD for our young adults

time, to use as best we can
to live each moment in
HIS will... according to
HIS plan. Life is
short.....live for GOD.
Love, hugs, prayers
and smiles!


Behold the Tabernacle of God


There are three de-
grees of life, in man: the
natural, the spiritual, and
the celestial.
These degrees are In
every man. By this, man
can be elevated to the
Lord; by this, man is able
to understand what per-
tains to the divine love and
divine wisdom. A being
that is capable of receiv-
ing the divine as to see and
perceive it in himself and
be cojoined with the Lord,
and by that conjunction

What would the Lord
be in relation to the world,
if He had not created im-
ages and likenesses of
Himself, to whom He could
communicate His Divine
Love desires to communi-
cate its own to others; to
give t6 its own as much as
it can. In order that man
may live to etemity, that
which is mortal in him is
taken away by its death.
oy this the immortal in
man, which is his mind, is
unveiled, and he then be-
comes a spirit in human

As we close out another month, we rejoice in
God's great love, mercy, and blessings...there
is no other like Him! On Sunday, we had the
privilege once again of gathering in His
Name to praise Him in song and receive the
messages in store for us from His Holy Word.
Our choir sounded exceptionally well, after
which Bro. Billy brought timely and well-
thought-out messages from Ephesians 2:8-9
and Hebrews 11:6, morning and evening, re-
spectively God is Great!

On Wednesday evening, Aug. 8th, we will
have otir monthly Church Business Meeting
immediately following Prayer Meeting.
Then, on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 10th and
11th, there will be a "Girl's Talk Retreat" at
Pickett Lake near Mayo, in which our girls

activities in the offing, so please keep watch-
ing this column.

Please remember to be in prayer for those on

have visitors Sunday, and welcome you and
all others to visit and fellowship with us any-

form: his mind is that spir-
it.
God is Divine Love
and Divine Wisdom itself,
and man is partaker. If
man loves the first degree
of life in himself, which is
called natural, and won't
withdraw from it so he
can become spiritual, he
stays there. This first de-
gree of life is love of self
and world, for it is the
senses of the body, and it
loves the world.
The human mind is of
three degrees, which are


the celestial, spiritual,
and
natural. Man was created
that He might be a form of
Love and Wisdom. He was
created in the image of
God in the likeness of God
and God is Love Itself and
Wisdom Itself. There are
three heavens in man: The
lowest, the middle, and the
highest. In the lowest they
are natural, in the second
they are spiritual, and in
the third they are celes-'
tial. The resurrection is
within man..


Make time for God

The idea of the Sabbath is one that very few people have
forgotten, but the practice of the Sabbath has gone
almost entirely by the wayside in the United States.
With the many things with which we overburden
ourselves today, we often find it hard to set aside an
entire day during which we do nothing-no chores, no
housework, no laboring of any sort. With all the
businesses that are open Sundays to try to keep up with
the competition, it is hard to convince the workforce to
take a break. While many stores have reduced operating
hours, only a few have no hours on Sunday. However,
most employers will work with employees that insist
they cannot work on the Sabbath. While this may seem
counterproductive for the'employer, they do not want the
reputation of religious intolerance. Inmany cases, the higher levels of management
are either Christian or know someone who is and can understand your concerns.
As far as home improvement and domestic labor, only you can prevent it on the
Sabbath. If you work at it, you can find time during the week to get everything
done to allow you to spend your Sabbath day in reflection or with your family. By
doing this, you will start your new week morerelaxed, help your family grow
together and strengthen your religious convictions.

"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you
shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a : '
Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do .work,
neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or
maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates."
Exodus 20:8-10 (NIV)

As the old man walked the beach at
dawn,
He noticed a young man ahead of him
picking up
A starfish and flinging it into the sea.
Finally catching up with the youth,
He asked him why he was doing this.
The answer was that the stranded
starfish would die
If left until the morning sun.
"But the beach goes on for miles
And there are millions of starfish," coun-
tered the old man. "How can your effort
make any difference?"

The young man looked at the starfish in
his hand
And then threw it safely in the waves.
"It makes a difference to this one." he
said.

Mentors Change

Lives...


What is TSIC? It's more than a pro-
gram and a strategy; it's an opportunity
to change a child's life forever. TSIC
helps disadvantaged children achieve
academic and personal success through
a scholarship and mentor program led
by a local partnership of schools, busi-
nesses, agencies, and individuals under
the direction of the Lake City Commu-
nity College (LCCC) Foundation.
Since 1995, the foundation has awarded
281 scholarships to deserving, lower in-
come students in the college's five-coun-
ty district (Baker, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, and Union counties).
Students are selected, from the five-
county district, after completing appli-
cations for the TSIC college scholar-
ships parent or guardian must sign a
contract pledging they will remain drug
and crime-free, maintain satisfactory
grades (2.0 GPA), meet with a mentor an
hour each week, and adhere to the
school code of conduct until graduation.
In turn, they are given the promise of a
college scholarship and the support of a
caring mentor. The Take Stock in Chil-
dren program is actively recruiting
mentors. A strong base of trained men-
tors is important because a TSIC stu-
dent must be matched with a mentor be-
fore signing for a scholarship.
When you commit to mentor a TSIC
student, you meet with the TSIC staff
and complete an application and a
screening process. After some basic
training, you will be matched with a stu-
dent who can benefit most from your in-
fluence. As a mentor, you: meet weekly
with your student at his or her school
during the students lunch time; become
a friend, tutor, and role model; teach
positive cultural and community val-
ues; assist your student in setting goals
and attaining them; guide your student
toward an education and productive life;
give a child hope for the future, and the
ability to contribute to the future of our
communities.
If you're one of those skeptical peo-
ple who say "They don't need me; I'm
just one person; I can't change the world
alone," consider the following anony-
mous poem used to describe the differ-
ence' a -eit kitdrh ake .none' child's

Buddy's E-mail Box
Buddy: I think a big key to Florida's
offense this year will be someone emerg-
ing at tailback. It will be very interesting
to see what Chris Rainey can add. Do you
see him as a. potential star? I think the
month of August will be key for him. It is
a shame Mon Williams is out this year. I
don't know if (Kestahn) Moore can be a
leader, but if James, (Percy) Harvin,
(Chevon) Walker, and Rainey, can add
some explosive threats it could be inter-
esting. With Tebow I see a lot of options
and reverses. I see the speed guys lining
up at QB and tailback. If a star emerges I
could see us averaging over 40 points a
game.
Phil Banks, Naples

I don't know about Rainey, the true
freshman from Lakeland, and how he
will fit in exactly Unlike Walker, Rainey
didn't report early to spring practice. But
if Rainey is half as good as his high
school highlights look, he will be special.

Guy from rural Kansas says this is a

neighbor call the local township admin-

cars out here! I don't think this is a good
place for them to be crossing anymore.'"

best real estate agent for
you and your family in
practically no time:
DON'T-Always go
with the first real estate
agent you meet. Take the
time to interview several
agents to understand
which agent will best meet
your needs. It may be that
first one, it may not.
*DON'T-Let family
members or friends "give
it a go" at selling your
home. While it can be nice
to help a loved one or
friend get a foot in the
door and a commission, it
is best to go with a real es-
tate professional with px- .
perience and a proven
track record in your mar-
ketplace.
DON'T-Use part-time
agents; those who practice
real estate in their spare
time. Real estate transac-
tions are complex endeav-
ors and you need agents
who are committed to
your transaction (and
their careers) and who
know the ins and outs of
the process.
DO-Check with fami-
ly and friends for the
names of agents they
would recommend.
DO-Find agents who
specialize in your neigh-
borhood and your specific
type of home. Interview
agents with experience
that matches your needs
and make sure to ask
whether they have a com-
prehensive customer sat-
isfaction plan in place.
Find out what their cus-
tomer satisfaction rating
is and whether they will
put in writing, up front,
the services they will pro-
vide for you.
DO-Ask agents for a
market analysis that lets
you compare your house
to others to ensure that
the agent you choose has
done his or her homework


and fully understands the
nuances of your market.
DO-Ask each agent to
share a list of past houses
he or she has sold, includ-
ing the list price and the
price at which the house
was sold. Also, ask for the

DO-Carefully com-
pare the proposed market-
ing plans for your home
that each agent presents to
you. How your home is
marketed will play a cen-
tral role in its sale. Be sure
to pay extra attention to
how your property will be
marketed online. Ask your
agent how he or she plans
to drive traffic to your
home to generate multiple
offers.
DO-Ask agents for
references from their last
three clients. If they hesi-
tate, they are likely the
wrong agent for you.
DO-Check for the per-
sonality "click factor" of
your prospective agent. In
addition to choosing the
agent who offers the kind
of experience you need to
help you buy or sell a
home, select someone
whom you will enjoy work-
ing with.

Florida Farm Bureau praises
House-passed Farm Bill
Florida Farm Bureau Federation, the state's largest
agricultural organization, hailed the farm bill passed to-
day by the U. S. House of Representatives, saying the
measure contains many features that will benefit Flori-
da agricultural producers.
The farm bill not only reauthorizes farm policy but
includes conservation programs, renewable fuel incen-
tives, nutrition funding and forestry programs. It ex-
tends the safety net for program commodities while also
providing $1.6 billion in funding to fruit and vegetable
and horticulture industries. The bill's nutrition and
conservation titles are the best funded in farm bill his-
tory It also has a strong energy title, with $2.5 billion in
additional funding.
"This is a great day for Florida agriculture," said
John Hoblick, president of the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation. "Never before has a farm bill been as bene-
ficial to our state. Not only does the House-passed farm
bill maintain a safety net fdr program crops, but it also
includes an unprecedented amount of support for fruit,
vegetable and specialty crop production. I am pleased
the bill also strengthens our commitment to conserva-
tion programs and encourages renewable energy initia-
tives.
"The bill is a balanced proposal that addresses the
needs of a broader core of U.S. farmers, ranchers and
growers, expanding benefits to all sectors of agricul-
ture," Hoblick said. He praised Rep. Collin Peterson for
shepherding the bill through the House.
House debate of the Farm, Nutrition, and Bioenergy
Act of 2007 (H.R. 2419) included consideration of more
than 30 amendments. A key amendment vote occurred
when a Farm Bureau-opposed measure that would have
gutted the "three-legged" economic safety net was de-
feated by a resounding 309-117 vote. The vote signaled
that support for stripping funding from commodity-
based programs, as proposed by Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.),
has eroded considerably since a similar measure gar-
nered 200 votes during debate of the 2002 farm bill. Pri-
or to the vote, Florida Farm Bureau members had con-
tacted members of the Florida delegation urging defeat
of the amendment.
The Florida Farm Bureau Federation is the state's
largest general-interest agricultural association with
about 144,000 member-families statewide. Headquar-
tered in Gainesville, the Federation is an independent,
nonprofit agricultural organization. More information
about Florida Farm Bureau is available at
http://FloridaFarmBureau.org.

Boyd stands up for
Florida's Farmers
Farm Bill provides historic support for
Florida's specialty crops
Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida), a fifth gen-
eration farmer and a member ,.
of the Agriculture Subcom-
mittee on the House Appro-
priations Committee, today i
stood with Florida's farmers -.
and voted for the Farm Bill '
Extension Act of 2007 (HR
2419), commonly known as
the Farm Bill. For the first
time ever, the Farm Bill pro-
vides substantial, mandatory -,
support to the specialty crop
industry, guaranteeing $1.5 -
billion for fruit and vegetable oy
programs.
"Fruits and vegetables must have an equal seat at
the table, and that is what this Farm Bill does," said
Congressman Boyd. "The Farm Bill cuts across party
and regional lines and reflects the need to ensure the
economic vitality of specialty crops to benefit Florida
farmers and the health of all Americans. Specialty
crops are an integral pillar of our agriculture economy,
and I am proud that the Farm Bill will provide the as-
sistance to support our specialty crop producers and
keep the industry competitive in a changing global mar-
ket."
In the past, specialty crops have not received tradi-
tional Farm Bill benefits for nutrition, research, pest
management, and trade promotion programs. Special-
ty crops, which include fruits, vegetables, tree nuts,
dried fruits, and nursery products, are a significant
part of our country's agriculture industry, constituting
almost 50 percent of total cash receipts.
The Farm Bill also includes key provisions that in-
vest in rural communities, including economic develop-
ment programs and access to broadband telecommuni-
cation services.
Additionally, the 2007 Farm Bill takes critical steps
to expand renewable fuel production needed to encour-
age American energy independence and protect our en-
vironment. The bill boosts renewable energy programs
by 600 percent, providing $2 billion in loan guarantees
for the development of refineries that process renew-
able fuels and $1.5 billion for production incentives for
ethanol and biodiesel made from agricultural, forest,
and waste plant materials.
"As I have said many times before, our country can-
not continue to be the strongest country in the world if
we are dependent on foreign countries for food and en-


ergy," Boyd stated. "Maintaining a healthy agriculture
industry and encouraging energy independence should
be both economic and national security priorities. The
Farm Bill not only supports our nation's food produc-
ers, but it also gives the agriculture industry an impor-
tant role in securing our energy supply Today is a good
day for our farmers."
The 2007 Farm Bill has been endorsed by numerous
farm groups, including the Florida Farm Bureau and
the Specialty Crop Farm Bill Alliance.


Over 38,000 Marijuana Plants Removed

2 MEN ARRESTED
(Chicago) Gary G. Olenkiewicz, Special Agent in .. -
Charge of DEA's Chicago Field Division along with '..' .
Richard Waszak, Chief of the Cook County Forest Pre- "ii '. '
serve Police, announced today the removal of over .
38,000 marijuana plants from 14 cultivated fields located '
inside the Crabtree Nature Preserve in Barrington, Illi-
nois. Two individuals have been charged with cultivat- .-' ./ i' C
ing marijuana and criminal damage to land.
The investigation began on June 10, 2007 when an -
intern with McGraw Wildlife Research, conducting a /. ,- ..
study in partnership with the Forest Preserve District "
of Cook County, went to retrieve a camera from the i '- ;
woods and encountered three Hispanic men utilizing a ..
sump pump, generator and water hose to pump water : .
from a pond near the Crabtree Nature Preserve. The in- -/: ;'
tern questioned the men who initially claimed to be em- -. 4 .
played with the Village of Barrington, but later fled. -
The intern then contacted the Cook County Forest Pre- .-,
serve Police (CCFP) who later followed the hose back to
a cultivated marijuana field. The CCFP notified DEA,
and aerial surveillance revealed areas of natural foliage One of 14 marijuana fields located in the
to the nature preserve, that had been damaged and Crabtree Nature Preserve.
stripped away to make room for the fields of marijuana.
In addition to the marijuana fields, investigators located more than one encampment with tents, cots and sup-
plies, including food, a cooking area, shower area, and fertilizer bags. Also found near one of the encampments,
was a reinforced underground bunker, lined with four-
/inch logs and covered with dirt. During an inspection of
-,: .. :, one of the cultivated fields, investigators found two men
,. wearing camouflage clothing and sleeping in a tent lo-
S... cated in a heavily brush covered area in the center of yet
: .another cultivated field of marijuana. The two men,
Identified as Jose Verra and Bernardo Rangel, were tak-
en into custody and have been charged with three
Scouts each by the Cook County State Attorney's Office.
The charges included two class two felonies (cultivating
marijuana over 50 plants and criminal damage to land)
and one misdemeanor (criminal trespass to land).
For the Chicago area, this is the fourth marijuana
eradication in the Cook County Forest Preserves to take
place during 2007. The total marijuana plants radicat-
ed and destroyed in this year's previous operations to-
it taled approximately 17,000 plants and, at over 38,000
Se plants, today's operation clearly surpassed that number.

growers in nature preserve, drug organization set up shop in the United States on
public property, in the forest preserves, where it was be-
ing cultivated for harvest and illegal distribution. They did a lot of work to set up this grow. Through the Domes-
tic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program, we will continue to work with the Cook County Forest Preserve
Police and other state, local, and federal agencies to make sure our natural resources aren't damaged and contam-
inated by drug traffickers trespassing on public proper- -
ty."
Chief Waszak praised the working relationship be-
tween the CCFP Police and the DEA, stating, "Our solid,
productive partnership with DEA continues to yield
positive results and we will continue to fight those who
would seek to profit through illegal activity on our :
land."
The DEA's Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Sup-
pression Program (DCE/SP) is a nationwide law en-
forcement program that exclusively targets marijuana.
The DCE/SP began funding programs in Hawaii and
California in 1979. Since that time, the program has ex-
panded to all 50 states, and provides support and re-
sources to 111 state and local law enforcement agencies.

Simply Chic owned by
Karen Hires is one of
most unique shopping lo-
cations in Cross City Just
walking in the door will
bring a sense of tranquilli-
ty Whether it comes from
the color scheme of soft
pinks and whites, or the
shabby chic d6cor, it cer-
tainly will bring a smile to
one's face.
Putting aside the
pleasant atmosphere, Sim-
ply Chic has a lot to offer.

and up. One can pick up
everything from vintage
jewelry, gifts, to wedding
items that can be rented or
bought. If any little girl
wants to decorate there

a shabby chic or cottage


style with ease. Not only

er, wife, or girlfriend.
After almost 7 years of

so happy to have her little
dream come to life. This is
her creative outlet. She
says she could not have
done it without the help of
her husband Rodney Rod-
ney had supported her
along the way, and helped
bring it all together.
Due to Karen keeping
her day job, Simply Chic is

ceeds from every Blizzard sold to Children's Miracle
Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving
and improving the lives of children by raising funds for
170 children's hospitals.
Last year, our local Dairy Queen raised over .$1000
For the Children's Miracle Network. During the event
last August, our community purchased 245 blizzards for
the cause.

lion during that time.
"Miss America is such a positive role model and her
visits are so inspiring to the children and adults she
meets during her reign," said Michael Keller, chief
brand officer for International Dairy Queen. "We are
proud to have her as our honorary spokesperson. We set
the stage lastyear raising more than $3.3 million during
Miracle Treat Day.- We look forward to topping that this
year."
Instead of snow-filled blizzards; Dairy Queen
will serve up a variety of Blizzard Flavor Treats during
Miracle Treat Day including the August Blizzard of the
Month, Oreo. The Qreo Blizzard debuted in late 1985,
the Blizzard's inaugural year, and to this day remains
the most popular flavor.

Oshkosh, Wisconsin Air Show brought 2 spe-
cial aircraft to the town of Cross City this last
week. On their way back from this air show, 4 pilots
stop for a pit stop with their War Birds.
The first was on Wednesday, July 25, 2007.
when Paul Pefley, a Pilot from West Palm Beach,
Florida, landed in our Cross City Airport to fuel up
his OV1-D Mohawk. Then on July 30, 2007. 3 pilots
fueled up their North American T28B's, for the re-
mainder of their trip to Miami. Florida.
Pilot Paul Pefley flew the 30 year old Mo-
hawk OV1-D from the Oshkosh Air Show. These


planes were originally built by Grunmman Aircraft.
and were used for reconnaissance, for the army
and the military
In Desert Storm and Desert Shield, the OVI's
were flown almost 24hrs a day in continues cycles.
There were more than 900 missions flown and 4000
combat hours flown during this time.
Towards the end of the Gulf War I, new
technologies had come about, diminishing the need
for these particular planes By 1996 every Mohawk
was out of the US Army
The second fuel up had two North Ameri-
can T28Bs owned by Cavanaugh Flight Museum


out of Miami. Florida. The Founder of this muse-
um is Jim Cavenau with the Musewn Director be-
ing Doug Jeanes. One of the planes was flown by
Michael Burke and Ariel Capote, and the other was
flown by Alex Arias with the company of Maria
Patino.
The North American T-28 was designed for
the U.S. Air Force. This plane was used mostly for
training purposes. Once America had gotten more
connected in Vietnam, they had altered the plane to
carry different items such as bombs and rockets.
These War Birds were used in the 50s through the
mid-80s.
