I have recently been di-

By Eli Loy

According to the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District (SRWMD)
groundwater levels are currently ex-
tremely low. With a majority of Dixie
County's water levels at less than 10
percent of capacity, it is no wonder
that the Phase I Water Shortage Advi-
sory, issued in November of '06, re-


mains in effect. In Dixie, alone, there
was one Local Pump service

Of course, neighbor ng counties are.
faring little better, and, in some cases,


worse. Flows below the 5th percentile
were recorded in the middle and lower
Suwannee, Steinhatchee, Santa Fe,
Withlacoochee, Econfina, and Alapaha
rivers. Locally, Jennifer, from Action
Pump Services said they had dealt
with 12-15 dry wells in the last month
alone. She noted that the first to go out
were older, shallower, 2" wells. Al-
though the National Weather Service
Climate Prediction Center is expecting
conditions to improve by the end of

November, the SRWMD is urging peo-
ple to conserve water.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, on Au-
gust 17, around 11 PM, Stephen Jacob Rober-
son, age 18, and passenger, Suzanne
Creathouse, age 36, were traveling south-
bound on 349 near Suwannee. Roberson
traveled off the roadway and vehicle over-
turned. Both Roberson and Cresthouse were
both ejected from the vehicle. Roberson died
on the scene as the vehicle came to rest upon
him. Creathouse was transported to Shands
Hospital and at press time was listed in seri-
ous condition.

The familiar yellow bus can
be seen heading down the
highways this week as all Dix-
ie District Schools begin the
new school year.
As students begin classes,
and parents begin pushing the
clock to keep their children on
time, it is important to remem-
ber that this is the time of year
when many unfortunate acci-
dents can occur. Watch out for
children entering and exiting
the busses. Watch for children
riding their bikes or walking
to. and from school. Most im-
portantly, remind your child
of the dangers of accepting
rides or favors from strangers.

A thinly-veiled plea for gun control
Sometimes I wonder, won't they ever give up? I'm
talking about the people who think the Second Amendment
doesn't really grant the right of the people to keep and bear
arms. Or, if it does, it should be ignored:
That benighted view had a pretty good run, starting
with New York state's Sullivan Act, which merits a bit of
clarification itself. The law, passed in 1911, was named
for its sponsor, a corrupt politician named "Big Tini""Sulli-
van. Far from reducing gun crime, firearm homicides actual-
ly increased, especially in New York City. The police de-
partment was empowered to issue or deny permits to carry
concealed weapons, which meant that Sullivan's goon squad
could legally be armed, while rival groups were subject to
arrest if they packed heat. (Ironically, Sullivan himself was
knocked off, not by a firearm, but by a railroad locomotive.)-
Some six decades of increasingly draconian gun
laws finally abated to an extent in the 1990s when some
states (including Florida) started issuing concealed carry per-
mits to law-abiding adults. Later on, a few states (again, in-
cluding Florida) passed legislation that essentially said
homeowners didn't have to go hide under a bed if someone
broke in, but were empowered to use firearms in their own
defense.
At the onset of each of these innovations, liberal
voices were raised, warning us that we were embarking upon
a return to the days of the "Wild West." Surprise, surprise,
firearm violence actually decreased instead.
It's really all quite simple. Criminals are cowardly
and they're lazy. Because they're cowardly, they don't ven-
ture into situations which expose them to in-kind retaliation.
In other words, armed citizens. Before, they only had to wor-
ry about the police, and they tended not to initiate confronta-
tions there, either.
Expanding cowardice to include laziness, they pre-
fer to operate in places where citizens are least likely to be
armed. Places like New York City, thanks to Mr. Sullivan
and his corrupt cronies.
New York City's Mayor Bloomberg is considering a
run for president despite the fact that he has alienated much
of the country with his efforts to penalize legal firearms deal-
ers in other states for the fact that the weapons they sell oc-
casionally wind up in New York City. Well, why shouldn't
they? Steal them here, then take them to the Big Apple where '
it's safer to use them because the citizens can't fight back.
And while we're on the subject of New York (by no
means my favorite subject) New York Times columnist Bob
Herbert is upset because, "We're handing over guns and bul-:
lets by the trainload to yahoos bent on blowing others into
eternity.' ..
Get real, Bob. handing over guns, bullets, etc.? Tried
buying a gun lately, Bob? It's not just a matter of walking in
and saying "pretty please," or even plopping down fifty ,
bucks. Not even here in the real world, 'let alone New York
City. You get checked out. Background checks to see if
you're a convicted felon, a fugitive from justice, mentally in-
competent, or if you aren't paying your alimony. (Not too
sure about that last one.) ,
Now, if someone steals a gun from a lawful gun
owner and heads to New York City; that's probably where he
belongs. (Or even if he leaves here and goes to NYC without
stealing a gun.)
In fairness to Bob Herbert, he didn't actually say we
needed to expand draconian gun control like they have in
NYC to the rest of the country. That viewpoint wouldn't
likely get over with a lot of the folks who might buy the
New York Times or one of its clones. No doubt, he's willing
to leave that to the politicians he'll be voting for.


Letter to the Editor:
I would like to thank everyone for their very kind
words of congratulations on my recent graduation from Lake
City Community College and to the Advocate for printing
such a nice article of recognition; it sure brightened my
mother's day, as well as mine.
IWhile I did only take one course that required travel
to Lake City for regular attendance and take thegreatest
majority of my courses online, my first and most critical
courses were actually taken in Cross City These courses were
either in a classroom with a real instructor, or Distance
Learning classes lectured by a professor in real-time via in-
ter-active television technology These classes actually meet
in Cross City This type of format allows for the interaction
with other students that is more conducive to certain types of
comprehension and learning. These normal classroom set-
tings offered situations that presented incentive and stimula-
tion that have to.be totally self-initiated with internet cours-
es. Without the classroom advantage, I very well may not
have gone as far as I did.
Many people are not aware of how extensive the edu-
cational opportunities are that are being offered by LCCC
through their satellite campus in Cross City It is located in
the old Sears building, directly across the street from Bank of
America. They offer degree programs in Associate of Arts,
Associate of Sciences, vocational training, and general en-
richment studies. For anyone wanting to either further or
start their education, they offer very flexible plans. People of-
ten say that they would like to, but don't have the time to
continue their education. What worked for me was to start
with one course that interested me; then another, and anoth-
er. Before long I could see that light at the end of the tunnel.
While all of my professors were very helpful and
dedicated, Diana Locke went above and beyond the call of
duty with her efforts in helping me to succeed in the math
courses I studied under her. Best part, I took these classes in
Cross City, not Lake City I can easily see why she had been
selected "Teacher of the Year" by Dixie County school sys-
tem.
Deborah Walker, who is the Cross City Center's se-
nior office assistant, was most valuable in helping with
scheduling, course advice, and general encouragement. She
is a joy to work with, extremely dedicated.
When I first started, Kathryn Mclnnis was a giant
help in assisting with study materials when I needed to im-
prove test scores to be able to continue with certain courses.
The biggest thanks, though, goes to my darling wife
Dotti. Her support and encouragement really helped make
this happen. She covered for me at work more times than I
could imagine when I had to leave to do research, work on
term papers, catch up on assignments, complete testing, etc.
She also has our home telephone back, since I'm not con-
stantly on-line doing homework anymore..
; For anyone even considering furthering their educa-
tion, Isay Go 'for It! The fine educational opportunities of-
fered right here in Dixie County make it far easier than most
folks realize. The support is phenomenal and the options are
many Furthermore, tuition and books can be tax deductible.
.Stop by the center in Cross City for more information; you'll
be glad that you did.
Sincerely,
Bob Leichner

To The Editor:
I feel it is necessary to clarify
and inform the good people
of this city of additional
facts that were not brought
out in your article of August
16, 2007 with regards to re-
zoning two lots in Cross City
All are public record and
readily available and need to
be brought to light.
I am trying to rezone two 100'
x 200' lots-to be four 100' x
100' lots. I have already fin-
ished one home. I promised
at a previous meeting not to
sell this house on a 100' x 100'
lot until the utility issue was
worked out and the rezoning
issue decided. I sold this
home within hours of having
an open house and I sold it


on the EXISTING, platted,
100' x 200' lot with an under-
standing with the buyer that
IF AND WHEN I obtained
the rezoning, I would get the
rear 100' x 100' portion of the
lot returned to me. This was
all done legally with the ap-
propriate documentation.
I explained this to the Coun-
cil and invited them to call
the title company to check
the facts. The home was sold
legally on a properly zoned
existing, platted lot. There-
fore, the Council DID have an
option and their hands were
not legally tied. They were
free to vote either for or
against without restriction.

would like to see either repositioned, or

standing on the grounds of the Dixie Coun-

Maybe the old community house could be

saved through a historical grant. Anyone

Scott Johnson
November 12, 1965-August 26, 2006
It's been a year since you were tragically killed.
Without you alongside me, my life is now unfulfilled
You brought me joy, comfort, and helped me along the
way.
I try to reminisce every moment to help me pass the day
To family and friends, you were loyal, honest, and had a
big heart. To me you were my best friend.
I still think about our conversations about what we
wanted for the future.
I can only dream of what could have been.
There will be a time when I must try and live again.
It will never.be the same without you by my side.
All I can do is hope that I can find the proper guide.
You will never be forgotten as long as I'M here.
You left me with great memories that will always keep
you near.
I want to thank you for all the good times we shared.
Because In my heart, we will always be paired, my true
sweetheart,
I'm still at a loss on why you were taken away.
I wish that we could have one more day, one more hour
or even one minute together. In that you're in a better
place.
I can only pray that I'll get to see you again someday.
With Love Always,
Martha & Colby

Residents living in and
around the Cross City, Fla., m
community can be screened .. .-
to reduce their risk of hav-
ing a stroke, heart attack or F "- ,-
bone fracture. Life Line /
Screening will be at the Dix-
ie County Woman's Club on
September 4th. The site is
located at 236 NE 134th
Street in Cross City Ap-
pointments will begin at
10:00 a.m.
According to the NHLBI, "one in every 20
Americans over the age of 50 has peripheral
arterial disease or P.A.D. It develops when
arteries in your legs become clogged with
plaque fatty deposits that limit blood flow
to your legs. Just like clogged arteries in the
heart, clogged arteries in the legs mean you
are at risk for having a heart attack or
stroke. You can lower your risk for
P.A.D. Timely detection and treatment of
P.A.D. can improve the quality of your life;
help you keep your independence and mobil-
ity; and reduce your risk of heart attack,
stroke, leg amputation, and even death."
Screening is one method of detection. Life
Line Screening uses painless ultrasound
technology to examine the arteries in the
legs and arms, carotid arteries in the neck
and the abdominal aorta. A bone density
screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also
offered and is appropriate for both men and
women.

Dixie Mainline

Temporary Closure
The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge announces closure of the
Dixie Mainline in Dixie County on August 15th for resurfacing. The refuge
nature drive between county roads 349 and 357 will be resurfaced and im-
proved during the brief closure

The Dixie Mainline offers the opportunity to enjoy a variety of habitats and
the observation of wildlife that reside in each. The popularity of the drive
and the use of it as a throughway results in wear on the surface and bridges
that cross the tidal creeks. The repairs will take approximately one month.
The reopening, scheduled for September 21, will be announced through
community newspapers upon completion.

Deputy Manager Shannon Ludwig explains, "We apologize for the inconve-
nience, but we're sure that everyone will be happy with the improvements."

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal federal agency responsi-
ble for conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife and plants and
their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The Service
manages the 95-million-acre National Wildlife Refuge System, which en-
compasses 547 national wildlife refuges, thousands of small wetlands and
other special management areas. It also oversees the Federal Assistance
program, which distributes hundreds of millions of dollars in excise taxes on
fishing and hunting equipment to state fish and wildlife agencies.

County


Commission


Highlights


Hay Aflame


On Saturday, August 18, at
5pm the Cross City Fire De-
partment received a call in-,
forming them that a tree had
fallen -across Spaz Branch
road. Mr. John Peck, of the
First District Volunteer Fire
Department, was the first to
arrive on the scene. Upon ar-
rival, he found an oak limb,
approximately 10" in diame-
ter, which had fallen from a
nearby tree and was com-
pletely obstructing the
northbound lane, and par-
tially blocking the south-
bound. Deciding not to tie up
valuable county.resources,
as he could handle the job by
himself, Mr. Peck radioed
dispatch, advising them not
to send any more personnel
to the scene. Working quick-
ly with his chainsaw, he
cleared the road of debris,
allowing traffic to resume its
normal flow.
mN W..,


Mrs. Miller, who had heard
of the blockage over her
scanner, had come down her
driveway, which was nearly
adjacent the fallen limb, to
investigate. She said that a
much larger limb had fallen
the week before, and had
,completely blocked traffic
until emergency personnel
managed to clear the way.
Mr. Peck surmised that re-
cent torrential downpours,
which we have been experi-
encing throughout the last
few weeks, were to blame for
the recent outburst of plum-
meting flora on Spaz Branch
road.

Mr. Lashley Addresses The Dixie
County Commisioners I
In what appeared to be a repeat performance of his appear-
ance at last week's Cross City City Council meeting, Mr.
Lashley lashed out at the County Commissioners, saying "I
don't see none of ya'll people out there building anything and'
ya'll been here your whole lives...if ya'll are not gonna do it
(reinstate the lease), I have no option other than to seek legal
methods." County Commissioner Marcus Hayes rebuked Mr.
Lashley saying that "He's insulted every member of this
board and of this county tonight."
In another agenda item, Tim Alexander, Emergency Services
Director urged residents to closely monitor the tropical
storm currently in the gulf, and explained a new FEMA pilot
program for removal of storm debris.
Cross City Manager Mike Cassidy appeared. asking the
Board's permission to remove rumble strips along the Horse
shoe Road due to the complaints of citizens that cars were be-
ing damaged, but asked that citizens drive particularly care-
fully through that area just south of the Ruth Rains Middle
School. He also reported that the new four way stops in
Cross City have been very effective, reducing accident- in the
area from one every six weeks or so to only three accidents in
eighteen months.


t was about 3 pm on Sunday, August 19, when an, as yet
unidentified, lady, came in to the Florida Division of Forestry
office and reported a fire on NE 50th Avenue in Cross City, by
Jack Roberts curve. Marc McCaskill responded to the alert,
and, arriving there, found a round bale of hay that was
aflame. Immediately spraying water on the fire, he decided to
request the support of the Cross City Fire Department. When
the other trucks arrived, Mr. McCaskill was still battling the
fire, but with the help of additional pumps, hoses, and men,
the flames were soon extinguished.
Marc was unsure as to cause of the fire, or if an investigation
would ensue. However, he did say that it is unlikely that the
bale simply burst into flame all by itself.
Also, The Dixie County Advocate would like to extend its
thanks to the folks at the Division of Forestry, and the Cross
City Fire Department. Although this was a relatively small
blaze, had it not been for their diligence, and fast response,
the fire could have spread to a raging inferno, causing thou-
sands, if not millions, in property damage.

Pathways


To Faith


Behold

the Tabernacle
of GC
Rev. 21:3

"HEAVEN AND HELL"
The church on earth and the
angelic heaven are one in oper-
ation. The essentials of the
church are charity and faith.
God, by his omnipotence, es-
tablished the church and re-
vealed the laws of its order in
his Word; and when it totally
fell, He assumed the humanity
and restored it. The Christian
Church was founded solely on
the worship of Jehovah in the
humanity, that is, of God-man.
By Jerusalem, in the book of
Revelation, is signified the
church which shall descend out
of heaven from the lord. All
churches before the coming of
the Lord were representative
churches. Today the Lord alone
will be worshipped as in heav-
en. There is nothing of the
church where there is no spiri-
tual truth and no religion where
there is no spiritual good. A new
church could not be established

unless the hells were first re-
duced to subjection and the
heavens restored to order. To
belong to the church is not
merely to be in possession of
the word, to read it, or hear it
from the preacher, but to under-
stand .it. The church is as the
heart and lungs in the universal
man. The church is called a
mother, because as a natural
mother nourishes her children
with natural food, so the church
nourishes her children with spir-
itual food. The church consti-
tutes the body of Christ and
every particular person in whom
the church is, is in some mem-
ber of that body. The conjunc-
tion of good and truth, which
constitutes heaven, constitutes
also the church. Man is initiated
into civil life by his country and
into spiritual life by the church.
Abaddon or Apoollyon signifies
those who destroy souls by
means of fallacy. Preachers who
do the work of their ministry from
no higher motives than those of
gain and worldly honor, and
who teach such doctrines as they
see by the Word, or might see, to
be untrue, are spiritual thieves;
for they rob the people of the
means of salvation, which are
the truths of faith. Continued
next week.


THE WORD MADE
FLESH

"THE DIVINE TRINITY"
I, the son of man, say a new Ec-
clesiastical History must be writ-
ten, because now is the Lord's
Advent predicted in Matthew 24.
The church was different before
the Council of Nice, as long as the
Apostles Creed was in force. It
became changed after the Coun-
cil of Nice, and still more after the
Athanasian Creed was com-
posed. I, the son of man, say the
books are to be enumerated with
was written, from the beginning to
the present day. The writing there
is such, that it shines brightly be-
fore those who believe in the Lord
and in the new revelation; but it
appears dark and of no conse-
quence to those who deny them,
and who are not in favor of them
on account of various external
reasons. The cardinal point of
doctrine respecting the Triune
God and the Lord was subverted
in the church especially by the
dogma of three Divine persons
from eternity. I, the son of man,
say the idea of common people of
the Divine Trinity, is that God the
Father sits on high, and His son at
His right hand, and that they send
the Holy Spirit to men. The idea of

As always, it was a privilege
to be in God's house again.
We had a full house
Sunday, as we welcomed re-

Our choir sounded especial-

seems to be regaining
strength daily, boldly pro-
claimed God's Word, choos-
ing Luke 19:10 for the morn-

of the wise among the clergy is,
that there are three communicable
properties and qualities; but by
three persons are meant what are
incommunicable. There is a Di-
vine Trinity; from the sacred scrip-
ture and from reason. From a trini-
ty of God's is necessary, and thus
a Trinity of a person, is in God in-
camate, or in Jesus Christ. This is
confirmed from the Sacred Scrip-
ture;' and also from reason, since
there is a trinity in every man. T
he Apostolic church never thought
of a trinity of persons, as is evi-
dent from their Creed. I, the son of
man, say a trinity of Persons was
first invented by the Nicene Coun-
cil. It was derived there from into
the churches after that time, even
to the present time. That trinity of
Persons has inverted the whole
church, and has falsified each and
all things thereof. All say that it is
beyond comprehension, and that
the understanding is to be held
under obedience to faith. I, the
son of man, say what is "a son
bom from eternity?" In the Lord
there is a Trinity, and in the Trinity
is Unity. Love you, continued next
week.

dren in mind as you ap-
proach school zones. On
Thursday, Aug. 23rd at 6:00 R
M., there will be an Associa-
tional Sunday School Train-
ing session held at Mt. Nebo
Baptist Church. On Satur-
day, Aug. 25th, the Communi-
ty Sing will be held at New.
Prospect, beginning at 6:00 R
M. Come on out and enjoy
great gospel singing and mu-
sic, along with some good
Christian fellowship!
It was good to have visitors
again Sunday and, as always,
we welcome you anytime,
along with all others. Please
remember to keep your
prayers going for those on
the prayer lists, the people in
our armed forces, and the
President and other leaders.
The effectual and fervent
prayer of righteous people

News





Excitement abounds at Lydia as we prepare for numerous upcom-
ing events:
1)This Wednesday, August 15th at 7pm, is our monthly
dinner.- Everyone is invited for fried chicken, grilled
chicken, and countless tasty accompaniments.

2)Next Wednesday, August 22nd at 7pm, Pastor Wayne.
Allen will begin his series of sermons on the Church
Covenant. Bring friends and family to hear this
scintilating teaching.

3)Our monthly "sing" is Sunday, August 26th at 7pm.
Please join us for wonderful songs of praise.

4) Our yard sale: September 6th, 7th and 8th.

5) Our revival: September 16th, with our speaker,
Brother Travis Lane from Astalula.

Last Sunday, Pastor Wayne Allen sang the inspiring "I Know a
Man Who Can," followed by a marvelous sermon from Acts
26:24, telling us that being "almost persuaded" is not enough..
People are easily swayed by advertising and marketing to buy cer-
tain products, but they are not so easily persuaded by the Holy
Spirit to buy into Jesus' word! They are open to 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 grade now, then fall of into Hell
where you'll then know the truth anyway.

Please join us every Sunday at 11lam for worship and 9:45 for
Sunday school. Remember at Lydia, everybody is somebody and
Christ is everything.

Shauna Clark returned Friday, August 11th from Nashville with two
recording contracts. Shauna and her family met with Dave Wilcox, Senior
Vice President of Eddie Crook & Company, and Scott Godsey a New Talent
Agent at Eddie Crook & Company. After a lot of prayer and conversations,
Shauna and her family felt signing with Eddie Crook & Company was the
Right path for her.
Here's a little background information on Shauna, she is 12 years old and
had been singing for 4 years. She has been going around to different
churches around out community such as: Lydia Baptist, First Baptist, New
Prospect Baptist, Central Baptist, Suwannee Baptist, and Old Town
Methodist. She has even gone as far as Mayo Baptist Church, Unity Baptist
Church in Madison, and Faith Memorial Baptist Church in South Carolina.
We started sending a demo CD to different Agencies in Nashville, for
months we never heard anything. Last week we sent a CD to Eddie Crook
Company, the called Tuesday, wanting to see her Thursday. God has truly
blessed Shauna and opened up all kinds of doors for her.
We are now in the process of looking of sponsors for production and touring
expenses back to Nashville. Any oae who sponsors Shauna we will give a
special area on her website (which is currently in production).
Any and all sponsorships would be greatly appreciated. We ask that you all
pray for Shauna as she goes on this journey.





There will be a benefit cookout for Shauna Clark, to offset the initial costs
of recording. The benefit will be held Friday, September 7th at 11:00am at
the Cross City Park. The dinners are $5.00 each and include: chicken and
rice, coleslaw, roll, dessert and a drink. Tickets will also be sold in
-advance; you may purchase them at Perry Auto, the Property Appraiser's
Office, or be looking for us to catch up with you. We will also be taking
orders for delivered meals. Thank you for prayers and support.
FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS
It was a good day at Faith today. Bro. Jackie delivered 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 accidents, 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.

house on the Gulf.
There will be a bridal shower for Brittany White and Leon Holden on Monday August 27,
beginning at 7:00 p.m. Marcia and Phil Bratcher has invited everyone (men and ladies) to

We are so blessed to see so many of our folks healed and back in church serving our
LORD.They are walking testimonies of our answered prayers. Thank you JESUSI Isn't won-
derful that our loving heavenly FATHER never takes HIS eyes off HIS children. No
wonder the psalmist wrote, "The LORD MOST HIGH is awesome" (Psalm
47:2) The next time we hear the word awesome, may it remind us of our
great GOD who truly is awesome! No, nothing is more awesome than to
know God! Sending lots of love, prayers, hugs and smiles!

John 3: 1- 8 King James Holy Bible

Life appears to be simple but for some it is a struggle, hard and often
serious. Born without permission, to parents and stations not of their choos-
ing the process begins at a disadvantage. Opportunities are, lost, challenges
meet with defeat.
Wondering along a roadway unbound they stumble. Nights are dark
fearful, without security or peace. Having no beliefs to cling to, not in them-
selves, religions or anything else, among p forest of trees, these are the
weeds.
Then there are those to whom the gods look down and extends a
hand and the doors to the kingdom are open. Having.an inward strength
that ha's become known to be "God", their lives become a measure for char-
acter. Regardless of hardships and depressions, they rise above it, lifting
not only themselves but also others. By unlimited talents and creativity, their
coffers are never empty, with plenty to share.
With a sense of integrity, grace andoften nobility, opportunities are
filled. Challenges are met with growing strength and courage, becoming the
foundation of family and the cornerstones of communities. With devoted re-
spected for that which a sacred and a love of Country, the land that may
have provided much to their success. Even if the success and happiness re-
quired hard work and too often sacrifices there is a sense of gratitude.
These are the spiritual people and the heavenly things that Jesus
speaks of. This may leave you to question why some appear to be chosen
and others aren't.

Ed Seay wasn't a king

he just helped

make one


The sports media seems
to always focus on those
in the spotlight, not so
much the legion behind it
who make the show possi-.
ble. There are more king-
makers than kings in this
universe, but they are al-
most invisible.

Such a man was Ed Seay,'
the high-spirited, fun-lov-
ing, Florida Gator super-
fan and proud Marine.
Not so much invisible per-
haps, but certainly inten-
tionally out of the spot-
light. Hundreds turned
out Saturday at the Christ
Episcopal Church in
Ponte Vedra to say good-
bye to the guy whose close
friends called "Pugy"
Among them were Arnold
Palmer and PGA Tour
Commissioner Tim
Finchem.

Ed.,Seay never won a golf
tournament, never ran a
golf tournament and nev-
er owned a golf course.
But'as Palmer's chief golf
course architect, he de-
signed and/or built more
than 300 of them around
the world. Literally, he
was one ofThe King's
Men.

"He was brilliant as an ar-
chitect," said XPalmer.
"But more importantly, he
was my good friend."

Together Palmer and Seay
traveled the world, fron-m
China to Hawaii to


Ireland.

"My dad loved you. Mr.
Palmer," Pugy's son Ma-,
son Seay said in the euldo
gy "He loved traveling 4t
world with you. He loved
everything about working
for you."

Many good times were
had and many stories re-
.main to be told about
those adventures.

The Episcopal priest,
Richard Westbury, point--
ed out than in life there.
was a difference between
achieving "success" and
achieving "significance."
Ed Seay, he said, did both.

Pugy's legacies, Mason
pointed out, were those
golf courses he left be-
hind for people to enjoy
"for several hundred
years."

Among Seay's were cours-
es are Sawgrass C.C.,
Ponte Vedra Beach.; The
Tradition G.C., LaQuinta,
Calif.; The K Club, Straf-
fan, Ireland; Four Seasons
Resort at Peninsula Papa-
gayo, Costa Rica; Kapalua
Village Course, Maui,
Hawaii; Aviara, Carlsbad,
Calif.; Old Tabby Links,
Spring Island, S.C.; Tralee
C.C., Tralee, Ireland; and
Adios G.C. in Coconut
Creek, Fla.

Pugy once told me a story
about how they were sur-


rounded by hundreds of
people in Japan after an
appearance there by
Arnie. "There we were,
back to back, like Butch
and Sundance, signing au-
tographs as we move to-
ward the door. I was sign-
ing everything they hand-
ed me and they didn't re-
ally even know who I
was," he said.,

Sometimes, even when he
tried, Pugy just couldn't
dodge the spotlight.

I knew Pugy as a Phi
Delta Theta fraternity
brother in Gainesville
and a resident of the attic,
where poor boys could,
rent space between dry
walls for $5 a month. We
called ourselves "The At-
tic Rats." We had no mon-
ey, but lots of big dreams.
Another one of the "Rats"
was Cecil Edge, who went
on to become a successful
Tampa car dealer. Anoth-
er, Don Rutledge, was a
premier college basketball
official who refereed
about a half dozen Final
Fours.

' Along with his high
school swimming coach
and mentor, high school
classmates and swim
teammates, members of
his college fraternity, fel-
low Marines, family and
friends, the '"Attic Rats"
were there as Pugy was
laid to rest. We all agreed
it Was a lousy day, but that

Pugy would want us to all
head to the local country'
club for a reception which
was pre-paid by him.
Even in death. Ed Seay
wanted his friends to en-
joy their lives. We did,
and we all celebrated his.

Quick Jtunp Starts
1. Odd isn't, that the term
"rollover" the old trick
we teach our dogs best
describes what the former
friends and co-defendants
did to Michael Vick.
2. It's bad enough for Dale
Earnhardt Jr. fans that
he's having a lousy year,
but even Worse for them
that pretty boy Jeff Gor-
don is having a good one.
3. He should have been in
the first class last year,
but Florida finally got it
right by adding ex-defen-
sive star Wilber Marshall
to the school's Ring of
Honor.:
4., I'm not convinced John
David Booty is mistake-
free enough to be the best
quarterback in America.
which is why I like a cou-
ple of colts Colt McCoy
of Texas and Colt Bren-
nan of Hawaii as my
preseason All-American
choices ... with a tip of
the hat to West Virginia's
Pat White.,
5. Dan Patrick said a
classy goodbye on his
ESPN radio show Friday,
simple, sincere and then
the network spoiled the
moment by tacking on the
tape of him reading an
Auto Zone commercial.

very much we appreciate the EMS of Dixie County, the

the fine men and women who serve our County well!
And most importantly, we ar grateful to our Lord, for it
is by His grace that our precious children's lives were

THUNDERSTORMS AND LIGHTNING
A PREPAREDNESS GUIDE
Thunderstorms are our most common experience of severe weather. The typical thunderstorm is 15 miles in diameter and lasts an aver-
age of 30 minutes. Despite their small size, thunderstorms are dangerous. Every thunderstorm produces lightning, which kills more peo-
ple each year than tornadoes. Heavy rain from thunderstorms can lead to flash flooding. Strong winds, hail, and tornadoes are also dan-
gers associated with some thunderstorms.
Of the estimated 100,000 thunderstorms that occur each year in the United States, only about 10% are classified as severe. The Nation-
al Weather Service considers a thunderstorm severe if it produces hail at least % inches in diameter, wind 58 mph or higher or torna-
does. The five main offspring of thunderstorms are lightning, floods, straight-line winds, large hail and tornadoes.
Lightning occurs with all thunderstorms., It averages 93 deaths and 300 injuries each year. It also causes several hundred million dollars
in damage to property and forests annually.
Flash floods / floods are the number one thunderstorm killer, nearly 140 fatalities each year. Most flash flood deaths occur at night and
when people become trapped in automobiles.
Straight line winds are responsible for most thunderstorm wind damage. Winds can exceed 100 mph! One type of straight-line wind that
can cause extreme damage is a downburst, a small area of rapidly descending air beneath a thunderstorm. Downbursts can reach
speeds equal to that of a strong tornado and can be extremely dangerous to aviation.
Hail causes nearly $1 billion in damage to property and crops annually. Large hailstones can fall at speeds faster than 100 mph. The
costliest US hailstorm occurred in Denver, CO in July 1990. Total damage was $625 million.
Lightning is perhaps the most spectacular phenomenon associated with thunderstorms. Most lightning deaths and injuries occur when
people are caught outdoors, most often in the summer months and during the afternoon and early evening. In,the past decade, over
15,000 lightning-induced fires nationwide have resulted in several hundred million dollars a year in damage and the loss of 2 million
acres of forest. Your chances of being struck by lightning are estimated to be 1 in 600,000 but could be reduced by following safety
rules.
What to listen for...
When conditions are favorable for severe weather to develop, a severe thunderstorm watch is issued.
When severe weather has been reported by spotters or indicated by radar, a severe thunderstorm warning is issued. Warnings indicate
imminent danger to life and property to those in the path of the storm.
What you can do Be safe!
Before the storm:
Check weather forecasts before leaving for extended periods outdoors.
Watch for signs of approaching storms.

Postpone .outdoor activities if thunderstorms are imminent. This is your best way to avoid being caught in a dangerous situ-
ation.
When a thunderstorm approaches...
Remember: if you can hear thunder, you are close enough to the storm to be struck by lightning. Go to safe shelter imme-
diately!
Move to a sturdy building or car. DO NOT take shelter in small sheds, under isolated trees, or in convertible automobiles.
Get out of boats and stay away from water.

Avoid using the telephone or any other electrical appliances. Use the phone only in an emergency.
Do not take a bath/shower.
Turn off air conditioners.

Get to higher ground if flooding is possible. Abandon cars and climb to higher ground. Note: most flash flood deaths occur
in automobiles.


If caught outdoors and no shelter is nearby...


Find a low spot away from trees, fences and poles. Make sure the place is not subject to flooding.
If you are in the woods, take shelter under the shorter trees.
If you feel your skin tingle or your hair stand on end, squat low to the ground on the balls of your feet. Place your hands on
your knees with your head between them. Make yourself the smallest target possible and minimize your contact with the
ground.

Log Cabin Quitrin ews


Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs. Aug 16th at the Levy Co. Quilt Museum. We
added a new member today that brings us to 67. Patty Denedict has been coming
several weeks and now she has really gotten into
quilting. We have another new one who wills fabric --
5 mins to cut and 5 hours to piece it and it turns out
great. These members can really come up with some
great ideas. WE have enjoyed having Ashley and '-* '
Christy here this summer. Ashley was such help
when we went to camp Curuth. She helped with any-
thing that being done and we will miss these girls
when they go back to school. Nick Turner was out
with six boys Tues. and really got a lot of flowers
beds cleaned. The yard always looks so great when they get it mowed. It always
great to have them each week. Thanks Lancaster Lunch was enjoyed with Lloyds
eggplant fried, Beets, potato salad, corn bread salad, Cheese & Mac, cucumbers,
meat balls in sauce, Brownies and coconut pie.
