owner of Old Town Rentals & Storage and
has recently purchased a number of parcels in Cross
City He applied to the board to split this particular
parcel in the northeast section of town into four
100'x100' lots, instead of the two lots currently al-
lowed by the RSF MH1 zoning.
The council was stern when it was revealed that Mr.
Lashley had sold the house existing on thd property,
after promising the council that no sale would be

A third party candidate for 2008?
We recently got the news that New York City
Mayor Michael Bloomberg had announced that he was
dropping out of the Republican Party However he did
not align himself with the Democrats in the process.
Hizzonor has re-registered with his elections supervi-
sor as inat affiliated with any party.i
The last time something like this happened in
the Big Apple Was in 1969, when the late John Lindsay
dropped out of the Republican Party while he held the
office of mayor after losing his party's sUpporT n'the
primary Lindsay ran for reelection on the "liberal Par-
ty" ticket (at least he was honest) and was re-elected by
a narrow margin.,Two years later, he morphed over to
the Democratic Party, but his political career was all
downhill after that.
Bloomberg, however, has no plans to follow any
further in Lindsay's footsteps. It is no secret that he has
presidential aspirations, however having quit the party,
he's obviously tossed out any chance of getting the
GOP nomination, and he's a total outsider among De-
mocrats at this point, plus his New York credentials are
clearly compromised by Hillary Clinton.
Maybe-that's why he's been in touch with some
of the top men from Ross Perot's two third party presi-
dential bids.
Like Perot, Bloomberg has enough capital in his
own bank account to run a campaign. he's offered to
spend as much as a billion dollars, or nearly 20% of his
(acknowledged) financial assets on the race if things
get to looking favorable.
Ross Perot ran the most successful third party
campaign since 1948, when Henry Wallace and Strom
Thurmond ran as splinter party candidates, giving
Harry Truman a second term with a narrow win over
Thomas E. Dewey And Periot is generally credited with
spoiling George H. W. Bush's re-election bid in 1992, and
maybe even affecting the outcome of the 1996 election.
Clearly, a splinter party candidate has a mighty
slim chance of winning the presidency, however he can
often play the role of spoiler in a close election. Consid-
er Ralph Nader's impact on the 2004 election.
Ross was an entertaining fellow, you had to give
him that. And Ralph was anything but; still, Nader ap-
peared to be a factor in the last presidential race sim-r
ply because it was that close.
Past issues aside, Michael Bloomberg doesn't
appear to be someone who's just trying to have a good
time or make a statement. I can't shake the idea that
he's really serious about wanting to run the country.
And just as neither major party particularly wants him
in the race, both need to be paying attention to what
this guy is up to.
9 One place where he's going to have trouble is
here in the rural South, and in fact in the Red States
nationwide. If your NRA dues are paid up and you've
been reading their magazines and mail-outs, you know
that Michael Bloomberg likes gun control about as well
as Bill Clinton likes bimbos. Not satisfied with enforc-
ing the long-standing abuse of Second Amendment
rights in his home town, Bloomberg is sending his
goons out of state to harass gun dealers on the grounds
that some legally purchased weapons could be winding
up on the streets of New York City
Envision this: Election 2008 winds up with,
Hillary getting the Democratic nomination. She's mili-
tantly anti-Second Amendment, in case you hadn't no-
ticed. The Republicans nominate Rudy Giuliani, who's
waffled on the issue lately, but could not be trusted to
veto a radical gun control bill. And we already know
where Bloomberg stands.
Admittedly, a gloomy outlook. But there's still a
lot of time, provided we don't quit paying attention.

Carl Wayne Butler


Born in Dixie County, 7/24/44, in an area
known at the time as Shelton, Florida
(approximately 5 miles from Horseshoe
Beach). He lives approximately 1/2 mile
from the house in which he was born.
(and 1/2 mile from Butler Cemetery)

Family: Carl Blaine Butler (father) and ...
Eneal Mildred Robinson (mother). Wayne
is an only child. He married Flora
Gertrude Duty on 9/15/63. They were
high school sweethearts. Together they
have two children (Denee Butler Hurst
and Carl Wayne Butler, II ("Darby").
Wayne is blessed with 4 grandchildren.

Wayne belongs to union Local 821.

He is retired from sprinkler fitting (and
also worked part time as a commercial "OE
fisherman/crabber out of Horseshoe Beach, as we as con-
structed seawalls.)

He enjoyed the challenge of working on big projects (such
as the 36-story Independent Life building in Jacksonville,
Cape Kennedy, and the nuclear power plant in Crystal Riv-
er). Anyone who knows him knows that he has a love of
people, and big projects brought in a opportunity to grow
and interact with a large diverse group of craftsmen.

The hardest part of working as a sprinkler fitter, other
than constantly being exposed to hazardous environments,
was having to travel and being away from Flo and the kids
so often. No matter how early he had to leave or how late
he returned, he always kissed the faces of his sleeping fam-
ily

The best part of living in Dixie County is that this is the
purest form of living... a simple, Christian life. Everyone is
family, whether you are related by blood or have just moved
in. We all love one another.

Being a native Dixie Countian, I remember when no one
needed to be a hunting club member, you could hunt where
ever you wanted. You could enjoy the woods anytime you
liked. We didn't have a phone until I was about 9 years old.
And when we did, it was one rotary phone located in the
central part of the house. For the most part, poeple still


i v-isited other people. There was no
ema il or voicemail. You never locked
your- house. And if you ever did, you
locked it with a skeleton key..which
was conveniently replaced at any hard-
vware store in case you lost yours.
There was
no a ir conditioning in homes or cars.
Cars had metal dashboards, and you
cut out your seat belts. Car engines
were large and gas was cheap. Our car
had suicide doors and there were no
car seats for children. If your dad
stopped quickly, he would extend his
armn to save you from falling forward.
Morm was one of the first persons to get
an ice box and we would have to have
our ice delivered. We were entertained

could afford a black and white TV
S TV's back then were virtual furniture.
ere was no ca e, only a set of rabbit-ear antennea. Our
favorite telephone show was "Ed Sullivan Show." There
weren't near as many commercials as today. There was no
microwave or super-fast foods. Mom cooked what was
caught or what was brought in from a garden. Bus drivers
ruled all. Our bus driver would stop the bus on a dime and
put you off right then and there if you caused any prob-
lems. Considering how far I would have to walk, I made
sure she and I never had issues.

Favorite Food: Seafood and country-style home cooking. I
really enjoy eating at local restaurants and visiting.

Hobbies: Fishing & spending time with grandchildren

Something you thought you would never see: Two
things:
1. Paying for drinking water (who knew?!) 20 years ago,
my father said that I would see this day come and thought
that he had lost his mind. Once again, Dad was right!

2. Calling someone in Canada to have them unlock your
car door because you locked your keys in the car! In my
day, you didn't lock your doors, period. Then as time
changed, a coat hanger is all you needed. Now, someone a
country away can send a beam to YOUR car in your
GARAGE in HORSESHOE to unlock your car door. What
will they think of next?? "Beam me up, Scottie!"


To the Editor:
In response to the National Re-
publican Congressional Commit-
tee's (NRCC) press release in last
week's Dixie County Advocate
concerning the reauthorization
of the State Children's Health
Insurance Program (SCHIP), I
hope that the people of Dixie
County won't fall for the inaccu-
rate and outrageous claims
made by the political messaging
machine.
The SCHIP bill passed in the
House of Representatives pro-
vides no funding or assistance
for illegal immigrants, and the
bill even states that "nothing in
the Act allows for federal pay-
ment for individuals who are not
legal residents." Additionally,
the SCHIP bill requires audits of
state SCHIP programs to ensure
that no federal funds are used
for undocumented residents.
What the NRCC's press release
fails to mention is that the
SCHIP bill will continue health-
care coverage for six million
children already enrolled in
SCHIP and provide health insur-
ance to five million more chil-
dren who are eligible, but not en-
rolled, in the program. .The bill
also protects our rural commu-
nities' access to healthcare with
the inclusion of a rural package
that sustains the rural health-
care safety net, adjusts Medicare
payments to rural hospitals, and
makes a series of changes to
boost funding for rural- clinics,
doctors, and ambulances.
SCHIP has been successful in
significantly reducing the num-
ber of children without health
coverage since its establishment
10 years ago, and I am proud to
join with the AARP and the Na-
tional Rural Health Association
to support the continuation-of
this important program. The
:-NRC.G should spend less time
trying to 'score political points
through baseless attacks and.
more time promoting policies
,that are good for the American
people.
Congressman Allen Boyd

that "I made a profit, but if you don't want to

monly used in the cultiva-
tion of marijuana. The

Collides With


Six Dixie Teens
-DCA Staff Writer

On August 13, 2007, six Dixie County teenagers
luckily survived a head on collision involving
an alleged drunken driver. Jackie Charles
Bible, age 74, of Old Town, was headed North-
bound in the Southbound lane of Hwy 19
around 9:30 pm in his van. He claimed to have
left the VFW Post and eyewitnesses placed
him traveling for at least a half mile in the
wrong direction and were unable to alert him
as to his misdirection. Frantic calls to 911
alerted Sheriff Deputies as onlookers wit-
nessed the inevitable as the two cars collided
in the left hand, southbound lane.

According to a media release by the Florida
Highway Patrol on Tuesday, the second vehi-
cle, containing 6 Dixie County teenagers inno-
cently collided with the van. The teens suf-
fered injury and received medical care.

Bible was charged with Driving on the Wrong
Side of a Divided Highway, DUI, DUI with In-
jury, and DUI/Property Damage. Bible was
taken into custody by Dixie County Sherriffs
Deputies.

need to avoid drugs, violence, prescription drugs and the
dangers of the internet. The program was established in 1983
and is based on the premise that prevention is the only long-
term answer to drug abuse, the program is now being taught
to over 90 percent of the school districts in the State of Flori-
da, representing 61 out of 67 School Districts and 938 public
and private schools.

Flash Flood Hits Dixie


By Lynn Williams-DCA Staff Writer

Sunday afternoon a storm knocked out power in areas of
Old Town for a short period. The traffic light at the Old
Town Hwy 19 and 349 intersections were out, and Dixie
County Sheriffs Deputies along with Firemen hand signaled
traffic at the busy intersection. Several business were also
shut down due to power loss, including the Citgo, Chevron,

Town along Highway 19.

Cross City saw heavy rain during the storm as well. The

Townsend Reunion


Held At Otter Springs

The annual Townsend Reunion was held in Ot-
ter Springs Saturday Hundreds of descendants
the Light Townsend family gathered once
again to visit and reminisce.


The Light Townsend family originated in Marl- |
boro County, South Carolina around 1764. Lo- | Y
cal descendants of the clan include the chil-
dren, grandchildren, and great grandchildren
of Malinda E. "Linnie" Thomas who married '-
Archie B. Thomas of Bell, FL. Linnie's chil- JTOW
dren included Willie who married Minnie
Sanders, Lula, who married John W. "Wes" Grinstead, Mar-
vin Matthew who married Margarette Knighton, and Loma,
who married Leo Cannon.


R


John W. Wes Grinstead and wife, Lula Augustine
(Thomas)settled here in Shamrock in the 1920's with his chil-
dren, Wes (Buddy), Eloyse, Evelyn, Sybil, Shirley, and
Margie, and Little Don. John W "Wes" Grinstead was the
owner and operator of a barber shop in the strip of business-
es across for the Putnam Lodge in Shamrock. His ad which
appeared in one of the first Dixie County Advocates is shown
below. Wes was rery talented and held various jobs during
his career. He was a mail carrier in Bell, he also drove and
assisted Dr. Philpot (the country doctor in those days). He


was then recruited over to Shamrock by the
Putnam Lumber Company where hle was in-
strumental in coordinating the "strip mall" of
A businesses which stood beside the Cypress
Inn. The strip included a Barber Shop, a
Beauty Shop, a Dry Cleaners, a Tailor and a
Doctor's Office among other businesses. Eve-
A lyn is the only child who stayed in Dixie Coun-
ty throughout her lifetime and still resides in
Cross City today Evelyn followed in her Dad's
footsteps and went to Beauty School to open
S I her own Beauty Shop in Cross City Evelyn
married the late Mershon Williams. Evelyn's
children are Linda Williams Gossman of Pen-'
sacola, and Ronald Williams (Barbara) of
NSE IND Cross City Evelyn has four Grandchildren,
one of which is also still here in Cross City,
Kim Williams Lander.
Although the other children of the Grinstead clan ventured
off to find lives in other parts of the United States, all re-
main close. Buddy and Sibyl even have "Fishing Camps" in
Suwannee so they make it "home" regularly for visits.
The Townsend reunion originated in 1898, and was then
called the Townsend/Thomas reunion. After World War II,
the reunion evolved into mostly Townsends, therefore being
named the Townsend reunion and was held every year, with-
out fail, on the second Saturday in August. A complete histo-
ry of the Townsend family was compiled in 1995 by William
Thomas Townsend of Bell.

NEW POKER LEAGUE
DEALS BIG FUN

There's no betting in the Aces High Poker
League. There are no multi-million dollar
prizes, television cameras or gold bracelets.
The winner walks away with nothing more
than a feeling of satisfaction in having wres-
tled the chips away from all of the other play-
ers at the table. That doesn't stop the avid
poker players who meet Wednesday nights
from 7 to 9 at Bell's Restaurant in Chiefland.
On this particular night, first place goes to


Les Sage, the organizer of the group. In a sur-
prise upset, however, second place goes to
Bronson's Jenny Hurrle on her first game
with the league. Newcomers to Texas
Hold'Em are welcome and are encouraged.
Each tournament begins with basic lessons
and a practice round. Hands are interrupted
by waitresses bringing new rounds of sweet
tea, while seasoned players help novices count
chips.

Interested in-joining the league? Contact Les
at lessage5@hotmail.com or stop by Bell's on
Wednesday evening. You'll be warmly wel-
comed.

Humane Society
Hosts Pet
Adoption Day
By Lynn Williams
Dixie County Advocate

Three large blue tents and a
few large fans kept the dogs
and volunteers cool during
the Humane Society's latest
Adoption Day last Saturday.
The grassy field by the Citgo
station in Old Town was a
great place to set up the
event. Several volunteers
from the Dixie County Hu-
mane society including Jen-
nifer Hale, Tim Furnell, Lin-
da Bartell and President
Pam Swanson loaded up the
dogs today to display them
for the public to see. This
event seems to bring aware-
ness to the fact that so many
dogs end up homeless and
there is something anyone
can do: adopt, foster, or do-
nate.

"Right now the Humane So-
ciety has about 30 dogs we
are trying to find good
homes for", commented vol-
unteer Linda Bartell. "We
also have lots of cats, but
they are not as easy to find
homes for". The Dixie
County Humane Society is a


relies solely on monetary
donations. All donations
are used to care for the ani-
mals that are rescued pro-
viding foster care, adop-
tions, and/or placement of
rescued animals.

When asked where the Hu-
mane Society gets the dogs,
Bartell explained that they
are mostly found beside the
road, at the dump, or at peo-
ple's homes in which the
circumstances are beyond
the control of the owner,
forcing them to have to give
up their animals. For exam-
ple, one Spaniel breed dog
they have now belonged to
man who lost his sight and
is no longer able to care for
the dog. A liter of puppies
they have in their care right
now was found at a local
dump.
Most people hear about the
dogs that are up for adop-
tion by reading the Advo-
cate, events such as this, or
by partnering websites,
such as petfinder.com.
If you are interested in
adoption, volunteering, or
donating, please contact the
Humane Society at 542-1081

Church News

It was a good day at Faith today. Bro. Jackie de-
livered two good messages that
God had laid on his heart, the special music was
special as always and we
especially want to thank God for the rain He sent
our way. Some of our folks
were out sick and some were hospitalized from ac-
cidents, etc. and others were
traveling so our number was down a little, but we
still had a nice crowd.
Remember that the Awanas will be starting up
this month and a special offering
to help with supplies for them will be taken next
Sunday, Aug. 19th. Give
whatever God leads you to give and if you feel
that you can help with the Awanas
program in any way, let Bro. Leonard Allen know.
He's doing a great job of
organizing this program at Faith. Invite a neighbor
child, a relative, or a
friend's child to come to the program and learn
about Jesus. It may just be the
only opportunity they get.
Pray for someone this week who has been sick,
or hasn't been attending regularly
or even someone who may be looking for a church
home. God will bless you for
it. If you haven't been attending Sunday School,
we miss you and would love to
see you back in our midst. We have wonderful
teachers who do a great job and if
you try it you may really enjoy it. Until we meet
again, may God watch over
you, and keep you safe, healthy and happy. We'll
be looking for you next week.


The Word Made Flesh

"The Woman Brought Forth from Man"

I, the son of man, say, in regards to a woman that has left her father's house, or a widow, or one di-
vorced, they have to bear their own guilt if they make a vow to the Lord and break it, for there is no
natural head to stand between them and the Lord. Precious indeed is the fact that the Lord will be a
husband to the widow, and Christ will be the Head to those who have no husband. But, even so, there
are many other situations throughout life where it would be well for each woman to beware how she
usurps authority over a man. The principles in God's law have many applications, and the Spirit will
give understanding unto those who seek Him for guidance. There is no need for argument to try and
defend or justify any position, but together we'shall seek the Lord for added revelation of HIS will and
way, for grace to follow as He leads. There has been much confusion and condemnation wrought in
bygone days because people laid emphasis on outward signs, rather than on its deeper meaning. We

need not partake of the carnal controversies of the ministry of woman, the scripture is clear enough for
those who care to seek for the spirits guidance. God has a place for woman, and the richness of their
ministries has been precious, but this gives no license for usurping authority over men, nor using the
things of spirit to gain advantage for the flesh. When the spirit of truth is flowing through a feminine
vessel, we do well to take heed to the Spirit. He chooses the vessels through whom will work. But, this
does not elevate the vessel to a place of dominion. Likewise, the same can be said for all men. Just
because the spirit has used a man, that does not mean that man is now some great one, who can
take undue liberties in exercising dominion over people. "Neither as being lords over God's heritage,
but being ensamples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3) Love you.



Behold the Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3


Behold the
Tabernacle of
God
Rev. 21:3
"Heaven and
Hell"
Continued
from last week...
some people be-
lieve that the cre-
ation of Heaven
and earth in Gene-
sis means literally
the creation of the
universe. That
Adam means the
first man on earth,
they could not be-
lieve otherwise be-
cause they had not
been told that to
create Heaven and
earth it would take
the collection of
those who had
died in the world.
And to found
(mold), to set up or
establish a firm en-
during existence. A
structure built on a
firm base or
ground. That an
angelic Heaven be
created, and from
this to produce a
church on earth.
(Rev 21:1, 2) "And
I saw a new Heav-
en and a new
earth: for the first
Heaven and the


first earth were
passed away; and
there was no more
sea.
And I John
saw the Holy City,
New Jerusalem,
coming down from
God out of Heaven
prepared as a
bride adorned for
her husband." The
Holy City
Jerusalem means
the doctrine de-
scended because
the church is a
church from doc-
trine and according
to it. Without doc-
trine a church is no
more a church
than a man is a
man without the
members of his
body. No more
than a house with-
out rooms and fur-


niture.
It may seem
paradoxes, but not'
so. That the natur-
al world could not
exist except from.
the spiritual World.
It could not subsist
since subsistence
is perpetual exis-
tence. That the
church cannot ex-
ist in man unless
its internal be spiri-
tual and its exter-
nal natural (the
natural clothes the
spiritual). There is
not any such thing
as a church purely
spiritual or a
church all-natural.
All the things
about Adam and
Genesis are about
the state of the first
ancient church; of
its rise or morning,


of its progression
or evening, its end
or night. After this,
the last judgment

NEWS


Excitement abounds at Lydia as we prepare for numerous up coming events.
This Wednesday August 15th at 7PM is our monthly Dinner. Everyone is invited for fried chicken, and countless
tasty accompaniments. Next Wednesday August 22nd at 7PM Pastor Wayne Allen will begin his series of sermons on
the Church Covent. Bring friends and family to join us for wonderful songs of praise. Our Yard Sale: September 6th,
7th, & 8th. Our Revival September 16th with our speaker Brother Travis Lame from Australia "Last Sunday, Pastor
Wayne Allen sang the inspiring "I know a Man who can." Followed by a marvelous sermon from Acts26:24, telling us
that being "almost persuaded "is not enough. People are easily swayed by advertising & marketing to buy certain prod-
ucts, but they are not so easily persuaded by the Holy Spirit to buy into Jesus' Word. They are open persuasion of
worldly things, but maintain an inward resistance to the Truth. Don't live in self-deception You NEED God's help! It is
much better to accept God's Truth and grace NOW, than fall off into HELL where you'll then know the Truth anyway.
Please join us every Sunday at 11am. For worship and 9:45 am of Sunday school. Remember, at Lydia, everybody is
somebody & Christ is everything.

It's Tiz Tebow's team

as Gators get set for


07


Supposedly, as Urban
Meyer tells us, there are
four quarterbacks in the
meetings with Florida
Gator offensive coordina-
tor Dan Mullen these
days, all competing for the
starting job.
Make no mistake, howev-
er, this is Tim Tebow's
team. And there isn't even
a hint of a quarterback
controversy
There have been many
questions about Tebow's
ability to pass which can
only be answered with
live game action. (He will
prove to be a good passer.)
And everybody wants to
know about the pressure
of taking over as a starter
against SEC competition.
Friday at Media Day,
Tebow responded to that
by saying: "I think first
being a quarterback like
at Florida there is a lot of
pressure. You get asked
how you deal with the
pressure. You think about
it like football isn't the

City of
fawkinsvidl
By Kelsey Lander
DCA Kid Correspondent
In 1886 the Hawkinsville
(Georgia) deepwater boat-
ing line had a wooden
hulled Steam Boat built for
them in Abbeville Georgia.
After 14 years of service
they sold it to the trans-
portation service company
of Tampa. The Steam Boat
witch was the largest
Steam Boat stationed at
the Suwannee was 141 ft
long by 30ft wide. The city
of Hawkinsville transport-
ed lumber and supplies
from Bradford to Cedar
Key. But the things this lit-
tle steam boat would carry
J in the next 20 years would
change this little boat' s
life forever. The city of
Hawkinsville carried the
materials needed to build
the railroad. This ended
the Steam Boat' s career
for life. So the captain, Mr.
Curry, decided it was time
to get ready to say good-
bye. He took the steam-
boat and sunk it in the
bottom of the Suwannee
and that was the end of
the city of Hawkinsville.

found on the second page of this document. Children from families whose income is at or below
the levels shown may be eligible for Free or Reduced Price Meals. An application can not be
approved unless it contains complete eligibility information. Once approved, meal benefits are
good for an entire year. You need not notify the organization of changes in income and household
size.

Free or Reduced Price Meals, households must complete the application and return it to the
school. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information

The night group of Springhouse Quil-
ter's meet on Tuesday nights at 6:45 PM
at the Springhouse Quilter's Building lo-
cated west of Trenton. There are approx-
imately 30 "Nite Owls" enrolled in the
night group.
Most of these ladies work at various,
jobs and are unable to attend the day
meetings. Business meetings are con-
ducted by the day group, but the infor-
mation and voting privileges are extend-
ed to the night group.
They work on many different quilt-
ing projects but with limited time to. at-
tend meetings, the night group works on
some type of project, either workshop,
personal or a group effort, each time
they meet.
Teachers used in the night group are
sometimes day members, while many of
the workshops are conducted by the night


members who have learned a
special technique or quilting
project and wish to share the
information with the entire
group.
The night group partici-
pates in most of the same spe-
cial projects and challenges as "
the day group. They have es- "
pecially enjoyed being a part
of the challenges and block .
drawing events.
Some of the younger "Nite
Owls" have recently learned
to make fabric yo-yo's. These Quiltinc
are circles made from fabric who ha
scraps, any size, stitched and they wi
drawn up into a tight circle.
The yo-yo's are fun to
make and can be easily carried and made
while traveling or waiting on appoint-


g workshops are conducted by the nig

sh to share with the entire group.


ments. The yo-yo's can be used as deco-
rations, made into pillow covers or an entire


Squilt may be made using
thie completed yo-yo's.
SYo-yo's were prob-
ably created as a way to
use up all scrap fabric,
when quilters were limit-
ed with available fabrics.
Kathy Beaulieu
was the teacher for
the night group last
week. She lead the
group into making
Lfoldy-stuff log cabin
Blocks. There were 8

lht members ladies that complet-
ilting project ed making at least
one log cabin block.

Annual Golf
Tournament
Proceeds
Presented To Dixie
District Schools
By Lynn Williams DCA Staff Writer
Tuesday night during the Dixie District
Schools Board Meeting, a check was presented
to the Dixie Schools on behalf of the Tri
County Reading Readiness Golf Tournament.
This Golf Tournament, which has been held
every Spring for the last seven years, is orga-
nized by M.M. Parrish Construction and Steve
Ward And Associates. The purpose of the
tournament is to benefit reading programs in
all of the school districts including Levy, Dixie
S and Gilchrist Counties.
The money raised at the tournament is divided
among each school district according to the
a FTE count (number of students enrolled). The
S funds are then divided among each school and
the Principal uses these funds to benefit their
school's reading program thru purchase of
general reading supplies such as books and in-
structional material.

Feeling Tense About Applying To Colleges? Tips For Parents


(NAPSI)-For high school juniors
and seniors, back-to-school means the
start of all that pressure about getting
into colleges. With school counselors
so busy-sometimes serving over 1,000
pupils each--it's hard to get personal
advice. And parents often don't know
how to help.
"The most important thing is to let
your child explore colleges for
him/herself and provide the tools and
the freedom to do so," says Dr. Kather-
ine Cohen, founder of IvyWise, one of
the nation's leading and most exclu-
sive private admission counseling
firms. "This doesn't have to be such a
tense time. It can be a positive experi-


ence of genuine self-discovery"
Competition is stiff. Many students
apply to colleges accepting fewer than
50 percent of applicants-1.4 million
applications go to only 223 institu-
tions. IvyWise techniques have been
very successful. Ninety percent of
clients last year were admitted to one
of their top two choices; 100 percent
were admitted to one of their top
three.
But private counseling is expen-
sive. So this fall, Dr. Cohen and her
colleagues are introducing a new pro-
gram to help level the playing field.

It's called ApplyWise (www.Apply-
Wise.com). It offers the same tech-
niques in an online, easy-to-use for-
mat that keeps parents informed, pro-
vides privacy to students and is re-
markably affordable. The goal is to
help students get into the college of
their choice.
ApplyWise consists of 12 interac-
tive counseling sessions during which
students complete key tasks that help
them through the admissions process.
A personalized home page, scheduling
tools, calendar, worksheets, templates,
and samples from successful applica-
tions help them create the most suc-
cessful application for themselves.


There are links to helpful sites and
automatic e-mails, text messages, pod-
casts, reminders and tips to keep
them on schedule as they assemble
their college list, create their "brag
sheet" and write their essays.
ApplyWise starts in September.
The full 12-session program is $299. It
can be done over junior and senior
years, or seniors can start this fall and
complete all 12 sessions before the
January application deadlines. Other
options include telephone counseling
and essay review.
