Cessna


Crashes In


Dixie County


Last Wedniestday. September
5thL, the Dixie County Sher-
iff's Office Was notified
about 5:30 a.m. about an air-
plane crash in Dixie County
The air traffic controller in
Jacksonville originally called
DCSO about
the crash.
Sheriff's Capt.
Chad Reed
said the plane
was a Cessna
208B single-en-
gine piloted
.by Randall .l,-, the R
Radford. Club, where the

Pilot Randall Radford, 44, of
Bay Minette, Ala., was the
only one aboard the plane.
Radford told deputies he took
off from an airport in Mobile
at 3:45 a.m. bound for Tampa
to pick up a load of cargo. At
about 5:10 a.m. Radford re-.
ported he heard a loud bang
and that it appeared the
plane had suffered engine
failure. At the time, Radford
estimated his location off the
Dixie County coast at an alti-
tude of about 11,000 feet.


The pilot quickly turned to-
ward the Cross City Airport
and crashed 8.2 miles west of
the landing strip. The plane
landed on its belly in the
Ramsey Bend Hunting Club
in the middle of a stand of
pine trees about
miles west of
US 19.
Radford worked
for Paragon Air
Express of .I
SNashvtille, and a
lamrrey Bend Hunt representative
plane was located, for the company
had flown to Cross City to
pick up Radford after he was
treated for minor injuries at
a local medical clinic and re-
leased.

The plane, described as a
short-haul regional airliner
and utility aircraft, can seat
13 and is about 41-feet-long
with a 52-foot wingspan.

The crash is under investiga-
tion by the Federal Avia-
tion Administration.

Stolen Truck Found


Engulfed In Flame
By: Eli Loy
land Thomas awoke Saturday morning at his resi-
dence in Suwannee to discover that his truck had
been stolen. Julie Herring, of the Diie Count.\t
Sheriffs Department, responded to the call. While searching
for the vehicle in Stuwannee. she received a transmission
from dispatch informing her of a truck on fire in a hunt
camp off of County Road 349. Arriving on the scene she
found the vehicle fully engulfed in flames. As local firefight.
ers from Old Town. Sfuwannee. and Cross City battled the
blaze. Mr. Thomas identified the truck as the truck stolen
from him sometime in the night.
Clint. a witness at the scene, said that he had fotiund some
items. which he suspected to be stolen, in some sinkholes just
a few miles from where the truck was found. Upon spotting
the peculiar caches of equipment, he went back out to 349 to
locate someone w ith a cell phone. When he flagged down a
motorist, the\ advised him that their phone had no service.
but that there \\as an office-r parked just down the road. near
the burning truck.
Ms. H_-erring told us that the weweire firearms in thl, truck
when it was stolen, but tilhe fielitghters hadn't found any in
the burnt vehicle i\et. She .l-.,o advised that she saw a white
male walking near the s,cen.e but. when she discovered that
the flaming truck i was indeerl tihe pilfered pickup, s).meoneu
had already picked him up.

QOn Tuesday, September 11, the Taylor County Fire
Department was dispatched to Ancient Oaks Air-
park, near Tennile. They had been called and in-
formed that an RV had exploded, and was engulfed in flame.
"When I arrived," said a Taylor County Deputy, "there was
ammunition going off inside the vehicle, so we had to sand
back until it calmed down a bit."
The RV belonging to Mike Falls, who was not at the scene,
and was unable to be contacted, was entirely destroyed by the
fire.
One firefighter at the location also informed us that there
were secondary explosions, which were likely caused by
propane tanks being heated beyond their stress limits.
"The person who called in said they heard an explosion and
then saw the vehicle entirely on fire," said a Taylor County
Fireman. "We've had some lightning today, but it is unlikely
that would cause a fire like this."
The Taylor County Fire Department was aided in their ef-
forts by members of the Cross City Fire Department. Who
rushed to the aid of their Taylor County counterparts.
At the time this report was written, the Fire Departments
were unsure as to the cause of the fire, but did say that an in-
vestigation into the matter would probably ensue.

LL






Is the world coming to an end?
For decades, we have seen cartoons of shabbily-
dressed men with long, white beards carrying signs
proclaiming the end of the world; but only in recent
years have people who should know better begun tak-
ing them seriously
Well, not exactly. Who today's environmentalists are
believing are the "experts" who say that our planet is
bound for perdition if we don't stop doing a lot of
things we enjoy. Things like driving vehicles with inter-
nal combustion engines. But their message is essential-
ly the same as that offered by earlier doomsdayers.
In his epic novel entitled, Earth In Balance, former
Vice-President Albert Arnold Gore Jr. labeled the inter-
nal combustion engine something akin to a blight on
humanity Presumably this included his own fleet of
gas-guzzlers, though he didn't say But then, he's buy-
ing "carbon credits." I don't even know what those are,
but if I were you I'd consult an investment counselor
before I bought any
Let us, then, consider the alternatives to using inter-
nal combustion engines., We could ride horses or ride
in horse-drawn wagons, carriages, or whatever.
I like horses. A neighbor used to have a horse that
came over to see me quite regularly, and was kind
enough to leave a fertilizer deposit on the occasion of
nearly every visit. I don't know what ever happened to
that horse, but I feel guilty every time I buy a bottle of
glue, thinking I might be contributing to the 'demise of
an old friend.
Of course, using horses instead of internal combus-
tion engines would require more horses. Lots more
horses. And horses contribute to global warming
through. a bio-chemical process known as "flatulation."
So do cattle. This stuff not only puts carbon dioxide in
the atmosphere, it also produces methane gas which, if
ignited, produces even more carbon dioxide. And in the
meantime, it doesn't smell too grdat.
The environmentalists therefore reason that we could
walk or ride bicycles and this minimize the need for
horses. (We'd.still need a few for parades, horse races
and pulling beer wagons) and we could become vege-
tarians and therefore minimize the need for cattle. (Al-'
though we'd still need a few of them to produce ice
cream, cheese, butter and low-fat milk.)
Another major flatulence source would be the noble
moose, who produces enormous quantities of C0O2,
methane, etc. from both ends: In Norway, where the
moose is the national animal (whereas ours is the rela-
tively non-flatulent bald eagle) it is estimated that you
would have to drive a car 13,000 kilometers (or 8,079
miles) to emit as much CO2 as a moose does in one
year. That's approximately equal to a round trip from
Tallahassee to Juneau, Alaska. Too bad we can't har-
ness that energy source.
By the way, that's just one moose.No telling how many
of them there are in Norwa : and no doubt there are a
lot more of them in Canada, Alaska, and a few locali-
ties having Moose Clubs with live mascots.
All right, let's suppose we can geL along without a lot
of cattle and horses, but no fashionable environmental-
ist is going to suggest that we start killing off the
moose population. No, indeed. The moose is a non-vio-
lent creature who harms no one (as long as you give
him plenty of room). The bull moose also has very bad
eyesight. Well, have you ever seen a female moose? How


could any creature that could see better than Mr. Ma-
goo fall in love with one of those?
The answer to this ecological dilemma? Contact lenses
for the bull moose. That should, substantially--and non-
violently--reduce the moose population to an acceptable
level. Shouldn't cost more than a few billion. The UN
could oversee the program, and American taxpayers
(as usual) could foot the bill. Big Al ought to love it.


Letters To The Editor


If you would like to send a letter to the editor, please mail it to editor at P.O. Box 5030, Cross City, FI

you must include your correct name.


Dear Editor,


Dear Editor,


Thank you for continuing your weekly "Letters To The Edi-
tor." the letters are one of the first things your readers look
for with each new edition of The Advocate. It is a valuable
part of your paper and helps us keep our finger on the pulse
of the community (or, at least helps us determine who is an-
gry and about what!).

Concerning your selection of other articles for use in your
paper, the inclusion of The Word Made Flesh and Behold
The Tabernacle Of God in your weekly editions creates a
concern for me. the rambling and confusing content of
these articles are of less concern however, than how the ar-
ticles themselves appear to be handled by the editorial
process of the paper.

I have noticed that the origin of other articles are indicated
either by an author's name or a group associated with the
article, these twoabove mentioned articles, however, do
not follow that criteria. Is there a compelling reason why
these are included weekly with no indication of who has
written them? -

I choose not to discuss the truths or errors found in either of
the articles. nevertheless, the prolific use of biblical quotes
to express a point of view suggests that the writer has a bib-
lical background from which to base their opinions. Know-
ing the identity of the authors) andthereby something of
their background would help your readers better assess the
reliability of the ocntent of both articles.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.


I've seen that businesses in one state have sup-
ported dangerous measures (measures that can
and do take away funding from public services
and disrupt other people's quality of life) in other
states. It just has to stop. 'Since the Federal
Elections Commission can't be trusted to do their
jobs, I'd suggest that every citizen organize boy-
cotts against any business or corporation, large or
small, who's owners support dangerous measures
in any state in this country until they stop doing
so.

I know we all remember what happened in New
Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and just recently
in Minneapolis because the money wasn't there to
strengthen New Orleans' levees or Minneapolis' I-
35W freeway bridge. The worst thing is that peo-
ple lost their lives in both instances because the
local governments simply, couldn't pay for the nec-
essary repairs. that's how bad dangerous mea-
sures can be, so unless we boycott any business
that supports dangerous measures they'll just
keep doing it at our great expense. Please let's
all be wise and do the right thing.

Sincerely,
Gretchen Sand
Kennewick, WA

Effort Seeks To

Save Lives


Drunk driving is one of
America's deadliest crimes.
In 2005, nearly 13,000 people
died in highway crashes in-
volving a driver or motorcy-
cle operator with a blood al-
cohol concentration (BAC) of
.08 or higher. The picture for
motorcycle operators is par-
ticularly bleak. Forty-one
percent of the 1,878 motorcy-
cle operators who died in sin-
gle-vehicle crashes in 2005
had BAC levels of .08 or
higher.


"Our message was simple.
No matter what you drive-a
passenger car, pickup, sport
utility vehicle or motorcy-
cle-if we caught you driving
impaired, we arrested you.
No exceptions. No excuses,"
said Sheriff Dewey H. Hatch-
er. The Sheriff's Office was

"Drunk driving is simply not

and financial costs of a
crash or an arrest for im-

Getting I he
Most Out Of
Text Messaging

(NAPSA)-lncreasingly, Americans
are getting the message-the text
message, that is,
There are an estimated 200 million
mobilee subscribers in the United
States who send an estimated 12.5
billion text messages each month.
According to Mobile Accord, ap-
proximately 68 percent of 18-to-24-
year-olds use text messaging. Yet
:his communication trend is not just
limited to Generation Y; all age
groups send text messages, includ-
ng those over age 65 (14 percent).
When text technology first showed
up on mobile phones, it was gener-
ally used for basic information ser-
vices, including weather, traffic and
sports alerts. Now subscribers are
becoming more sophisticated, de-
manding advanced mobile services
such as location-based (finder) ser-
vices and mobile banking applica-
tions.

Mobile banking-services that allow
consumers to check their banking
information such as their account

With the technology provided by
OpenMarket, content providers are
able to offer consumers new ser-

Horace Thomas

Celebrates 90th Birthday


.0J

It's Boy!


By Sue Thomas Lander
Born September 4th, 1917 in Bell Florida, Horace Thomas
is one of eight (8) children born to Lawton and Lina
Thomas. A birthday celebration was hosted by his four (4)
children and their spouses. Doyle and Lorene Thomas, Joe
and Sue Lander, Don and Brenda Thomas, and Tom and
Alda Griffin entertained about 100 family and friends at the
homestead where Horace and his seven siblings grew up.
The home was originally built in Williford, Florida by Ho-
race's Granddaddy Thomas who had fourteen (14) children.
He had a business in turpentine and railroad cross-ties. Ho-
race's father Lawton Thomas, as the oldest child, inherited
the house. Lawton and his children dismantled the house
and moved it to their homestead. The house was moved by
horse and wagon over wagon trails as there were no roads
connecting this distance of about eleven (11) miles. Ho-
race's sister Evenelle Denmark and her daughter Jeanette
Schnauss have restored the house and graciously open it
for family reunions and get together.
Horace is married to the former Hazel Polk. They have
been married for sixty nine (69) years; have four (4) chil-
dren ten (10) grand-children and nineteen (19) great grand-
children. Horace served as Clerk of the Circuit Court of.
Gilchrist County for thirty two (32) years and prior to that
worked seven (7) years for a federal program administered
by the County Agent. Horace played for the Bell Bulldogs
and according to Cas Akins, was a member of the best
basketball team Bell High School has ever had. With only
seven players, they even beat that year's state champi-
onship team, Cross City.

HUTOJaM SocIety Pt .of the Week
A skinny, starving, young female, Husky mix with her two puppies
wandered up to Tammy's home in Old Town. Being an animal
lover and having a big heart, Tammy could not turn the needy
three'away. She took them in, even though she already had two
dogs. The mother dog was in
bad shape from malnutrition so -p
she contacted Becky Kish at '
"Paws and Claws" in Chiefland "'
to get some advice on what to
do. Becky gave Tammy some .
advice and Tammy nursed the
three until they were healthy..,
This-was two years ago'now
and one of the puppies has
found another home. Tammy
has been faithfully taking care
of the remaining two, Mama
and Voo Doo, also trying to
place them in homes. Becky still
helping by listing them on the internet on her "Paws and Claws"
web page on Petfinders.com.
Unfortunately for Dixie County, Tammy is relocating and is un-
able to take Mama and Voo Doo with her. She is now faithfully
bringing them every Saturday to our pet adoptions in Old Town in
hopes of finding them a good home. Mama and Voo Doo are very
loving, friendly, gentle, loyal and housetrained. If you have room
for one or two very nice companions, these are two who
deserve a good home.
Becky Kish of "Paws and Claws" has adopted over 200 dogs
in the past 3 years. What a difference she has made. If we do
not have the dog. you are looking for, maybe she does. You can
reach her at (352) 490-6608 or (352) 871-2012 or email her at
_rkish@svic.net_ (mailto:rkish@svic.net).
We will be returning to CITGO gas station in Old Town this
coming Saturday for our pet adoptions from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m.

During 2007, Springhouse Quilters have
been participating in challenges and
block raffle drawings. The last challenge was
a quilt block duplicating a gift
bag. These blocks will be on display during i
the quilt show in October along
with some of the block raffle drawings. The
block raffles started in
February with a heart Valentine block made .,: '
using reds and pinks. Easter's raffle
was a rabbit block and May's raffle was a
basket. For the 4th of July, a
paper-pieced star was made and the blocks won by Nancy Coile. She has
assembled
the red, white and blue blocks into a quit and recently displayed the quilt.
Winning all of the blocks is a quick and easy way to get a quilt top complet-
ed without a lot of actual block piecing. Congratulations to Nancy for win-
ning the blocks and putting the block together into a quilt.

With 2007 fast coming to an end, many of the Springhouse members have
been busy finishing up their community project. The community project is a
lap quilt which each member will make and they will be donated to a local
nursing home or used for a community need.

For information on Springhouse Quilters or anyone that would like to join
Springhouse, contact Mary Rawlins, 493-7401, or Lois Scott, 463-2207. The
dues for the year are nominal and there are many benefits to be gained.

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST NEWS


Behold the Tabernacle of God
Rev 21:3

The Natural Jew
I, the son of man, say the natural Jews do not acknowledge
the Lord, although the whole sacred scripture prophesied
concerning him and predicted Him; they rejected Him for
this sole reason, that He taught them of the heavenly king-
dom, and not concerning an earthly kingdom, for they want-
ed a Messiah who would exalt them above all nations in the
whole world, and they did not wish any Messiah who would
provide for their eternal salvation. Moreover, they say the
Word contains, in itself, many Arcana, which are called
mystical, but they do not wish to know that these treat of
the Lord and His Kingdom. I, the son of man, say the word
"Jew" is very misleading, since many people use the word
to refer to all of Israel. This is not true. Jewry today is a re-
ligion, not a race. It is the be noted that many people of
many races now have become "Jews," taking it for their reli-
gion. This does not change their blood lineage of race.
Even if some would try to make this word apply to that rem-
nant from the tribe of Judah who returned after their capitiv-
ity, even so, this certainly does not include all tribes. Since
creation there have been four churches in general on this
earth, one after another, it appears from both the historical
and the prophetical parts of the Word. The first church and
its consummation or end is described by the flood. The
second church was in Asia and part of Africa and was
brought to its end by idolatries. I, the son of man, say the
third church, which was the Israelitish, began at the promul-
gation of the Decalogue on Mount Sinai, was continued by
the Word written by Moses and the prophets, and was end-
ed by its profanation of the Word which was at it's fullness
when the Lord came into the world; therefore, because he
was the Word, they crucified Him. The fourth church is the
Christian, which the Lord established by the evangelists
and the apostles. This church has had two epochs, one ex-
tending from the time of the Lord until the council of Nice,,
and the other from that council to this time. This after was
divided into three branches; the Greek, the Roman Catholic
and the Reformed. These three are called Christian. Con-
tinued next week.

Lydia Baptist Church fews
Praise God's Holy name! This week our cottage prayer meet-
ing will herald the advent of our revival (which begins Sept.
16th through Sept. 21st), and the excitement is already build-
ing. Brother Travis Lane from Astatula, FL., will be our
speaker, and has graciously offered to extend the revival
through Friday, Sept. 21st, with a special presentation enti-
tled "Ready or Not, Jesus Is Coming". Praise The Lord for
Brother Travis' enthusiasm. Accompanying Brother Travis
will be his Youth Director, William Bowyer, who will present
a dynamic Youth Rally on Saturday, Sept 22nd. For details,
-call Pastor Allen at 498-3708.
Last Sunday, our Lydia Quartet sang "One Scarred Hand", an
emotional moving story that emphasizes Jesus' suffering
and his love for us, even though we are SO unworthy, Elaine
Hines taught the children that the only way we can feel of
any worth is through Jesus and his love.
Pastor Wayne Allen's powerful message, from Genesis 3 1-5,
said Satan still fools people with the same lie, year after year
people attempt to justify their actions with "Everybody does
it"- that excuse will sound even more feeble on Judgement
Day than it does now! You have had ample opportunities to,
follow the right path, so if you arrive in hell it won't be God's
fault! When you follow the Devil's "system" (and all "things
of the world" are run by the devil), you may think you have
"got away with it", but truth will find you out. Who is the :
truth? Jesus. What is the truth? The Bible. When is the truth?
The Holy Spirit. The Devil CANNOT stand against the truth!!
Our ladies' Sunday School's yard sale was a great success,
with all proceeds going to the Lighthouse Children's Home.
Please come to our revival on Sunday Sept. 16th through Fri-
day Sept. 21st, and our dinner on Wednesday Sept.'21st at 5:30
PM-6:30PM followed by the revival service at 7 P.M.
remember, at Lydia, everybody somebody and Christ is
everything.

Although the weather is still plenty warm, just enough change has
occurred to say that "fall is in the air," a most welcome respite from
the muggy days of summer. As the beginning of our new church
year approaches, we look forward to continuing our work for our
Lord and Savior, and growing ever closer to Him in the process.
Our Sunday services were certainly a step in the right direction, as
our choir and musicians blessed us with wonderful songs of praise
and worship, and Bro. Billy brought God's timely message from
John 21:3, expressing the importance of maintaining a close rela-
tionship with Jesus. It was good to be in God's house again!.

Don't forget the Dixie Sportsman Outdoor Expo on Saturday, Sept.
15th, beginning at 10:00 A. M. at the old KOA Campground on the
Suwannee. We highly recommend this event as a good, whole-,
some tirmre of family fun and competition with a Christian theme
and atmosphere. On another note, we will have our monthly Fel-
lowship Supper on Wednesday evening, Sept. 19th, at the church
annex. On Saturday, Sept. 22nd, there will be a Youth Rally at Ly-
dia, Baptist Church, beginning at 6:00 P. M.
We were blessed to have visitors again Sunday, and hope that
you'll return. Visitors, new and old, are always welcome at NPBC!.
We hope you are having a good week, and please remember to be
in prayer for all the folks on the church prayer lists, our people in
the armed forces, and our President and other leaders. May God
bless and keep you safe.

The Word Made Flesh
'The Divine Trinity"
Continued from last week, I the son of man, say'the reason why
this New Church is the crown of all churches which have been to
this time on the terrestrial globe is, because it will worship one visi-
ble God in whom is the invisible God, as the soul is in the body, for
thus and no otherwise can conjunction be effected between God
and man; the reason of which is, because man is natural and con-
sequently thinks naturally, and the conjunction must be effect in
his thought, and such in the affection of his love, and so conjunc-
tion is produced when a man thinks of God as a man- I the son of
man, say Conjunction with an invisible God is like the conjunction
of ocular sight with the expanse of the universe, of which it sees
no end; it is also like the sight in the midst of the ocean, which
falls on air and water, and it last in their immensity; but conjunction
with a visible God is like the visible appearance of a man in the air
or in the sea,. stretching forth his hands and inviting to his em-
braces; for all conjunction of God with man must be likewise recip-
rocal on the part of man with God; and this reciprocality on man's
part is not possible with a visible God. I the son of man say that
God was not visible before he assumed the Humanity, the Lord
himself teaches in John: "Ye have neither heard the voice of the
Father nor seen his shape" (5:37). And in Moses: "No man can
see me and live" (Exod. 33:20) but that he is seen by his humani-
ty, is declared in John: "No man hath seen God at any time; the
only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath de-
clared him" (1:18) and again: "Jesus saith, I am the Way the Truth
and the life, no m an cometh unto the Father but by me: if ye had
known me, ye would have known my Father also: he that hath
seen me, hath seen the Father" (14:6,7,9). Love you continued
next week, .

Maybe These

Gators Are

Pretty Good


Perhaps Urban 19Ieyer,
his players and his coach-
es had just better shut
their ears for now and
quit reading the newspa-
per and Internet all to-
gether. Because it's hard
to keep this stuff secret.
The news is out: It's time
to start taking these
Florida Gators more seri-
ously. Maybe they really
are, as the polls have in-
dicated, the No.,3 (USA To-
day Coaches) and No. 4
(AP) team in the nation.
Yeah, I know it was only
Troy they beat Saturday
and Western Kentucky
last week. They played
with a split personality in
the first and. second
halves Saturday night. Not
so well in the second half,
but so terrific in the first
two quarters that they
were up 49-7 and could
coast in the final 30 min-
utes for a 59-31 victory.
It was impressive enough
for losing Troy Coach
Larry Blakeney to say,
"From an offensive stand-
point, they can repeat (as
national champions) and
beat anybody." Meyer said
when he team came in at
halftime, leading by 42,
quite a few of
the young players had
"confused looks" on their
faces and didn't really
seem to understand the
mission in the second
half of finishing the job.


Introduction

Workshop

Sept. 28,2001
At 10:00 a.m.

But he attributed that to
the youth of his team and
therefore stopped short of
being critical.
Surprisingly, the fact that
the Gator. defense gave up
336 yards and 31 points
'didn't really upset NMeyer.
who said his team "played
great defense in the first
half" and was particularly
proud of two blocked
punts.
"The big ones we've had
against Tennessee and
LSU and some of the big
wins around here are be-
cause we played football
like we did in the first
half," said Meyer.
Even the coach had to ad-
mit that his team's offen-
sive firepower was "excit-
ing."
We can only measure
what's. in front of us, and
in this season of Ap-
palachian State giant-
killers and Michigan tank
jobs, coaches are learning
to be grateful for every
point, every touchdown,
every win -- no matter by
how small or how un-es-
teemed the opponent.
This is The Season of Un-
certainty and there were.
some hearts fluttering Sat-
urday night as the partial
scores started trickling
out of Knoxville and
Athens. Between the
hedges it was a tough
place to be for Georgia
fans, who once agair 'saw


their season hijacked by
South Carolina's Head
Ball Coach.
So any win is a good win.
Just consider how the
Gators have responded to
the"'Appalachian States"
on their schedule no of-
fense to the Mountaineers
and their fans so far.
Think about these stats:
In the first 5 %t periods of
play remembering that
the Western Kentucky
game was cut 8-plus min- *
utes short by lightning -
the Gators outscored
their opponents 98-10. The
Florida offense scored sev-
en touchdowns on 10 pos-
sessions.
In their first seven drives
Saturday against Troy, the
Gators scored seven
times. If you're scoring at
home, that's 14 touch-
downs in 17 tries. That's
pretty good against the
wind.
Now it's time for Big Boy
football.
"Officially this is SEC
week," Meyer said.
"You'll see us practice a
little different tempo. My
concern is lot of the
young players don't under-
stand that yet. When I talk
about the 'confused' look I
saw at halftime (tonight),
it's all of those '07 players
(freshmen) and some of
the '06s."
For the moment, however.
in this topsy-turvy season,


Urban MNlver i., one haplpyJ

Quick Jump

Starts
1. The first full slate of
the NFL unfolds today
,ni] I just hope it dioes-
n't evolve. again, into
the "No Fun Le:ague.
2. Finally, baseball gets a
feel-good story in Cardi-
nal comebacker Rick
Ankiel, thenf we have to
read the depressing news
about his alleged use of
HGH even if it really
was prescribed by his
physician.
3. It may not rival "Re-
member The Alamo,"
but college coaches who
need a wakeup call for
their teams playing
against big underdogs
will always have "Re-
member Appalachian
State!"
4. OK, who were the
first-half coaches and
who were the second-half
coaches last weekend
when Florida State failed
to show up for the first
two quarters in the loss
to Clemson?
5. Given that last week's
game at Florida Field
with Western Kentucky
was canceled in the mid-
dle of the final quarter,
will Urban Meyer's pre-
game speeches now be-
come: "Go out there and
fight for 60 minutes, or
52 minutes ... or for how-
ever long we play the
game!"

great times, one place offers a sensual and sensory experience
uniquely American: Kentucky.Bourbon Country.
Louisville is the gateway for Bourbon Country and the start of
the famed Bourbon Trail-a distinctly Kentucky experience that

I see the ESPNU drum
beat has begun as Mark
May and Lou Holtz pre-
dicted the
entire 2007 College foot-
ball year. Why even play
it? Let's just move to the
playoffs. Naturally, their
final top 10 contains two
Pac 10 teams and two Big
Ten teams but only one
SEC team. They were
chastened enough to let
,LSU play in the BCS
Championship game, but
naturally had it losing to
USC. Won't they ever
learn?
Best regards,
David Baird, Punta Gorda

DAVID: Let them have
their fun. Anybody can
pick the games when-
they're
over. I agree, however,
that they seem to forget
about the dominance of
the SEC.

Buddy's Believe

(But don't ask
him to prove it)
1. Men can read smaller
print than women, but
W omnen can hear better.
2. If you leave Tokyo by

arrive in Honolulu at
approximately 4:30pm the
previous day.
3. China has more English
speakers than the United
States.
PUNDERFUL
1. I wondered why the
baseball was getting big-
ger. Then it hit me.
2. If you take a laptop
computer for a run you
.could jog your memory.
3. The math professor
went crazy with the black-
board. He did a number
on it.

Dixie Bears Fall to

Newberry Panthers
by John Kelley

The Bears posted their first loss of the season,
to the class 2B's second ranked Newberry Pan-
thers Friday night at home. The Panthers and
the Bears faced off in Boyette Stadium to a
packed home crowd, in what proved to be a
tough battle on the ground for both teams. The
Panthers ultimately dominated the game, fin-
ishing the Bears 21 to 14.


-. ww g. -T-_ ri --*wss T ,r 'tIrFxa
Dixie County came out tough during the first
quarter, recovering a fumble within the first
four plays of the game, but couldn't gain the
momentum needed to push back the strong
Newberry defense. The Bears defense would
not allow the Panthers to cross the goal
though, until the second quarter. Newberry
scored in the opening minute of the second, to
start a scoring run that lasted into third quar-
ter. During the fourth quarter the Bears ral-
lied and posted 14 points to close the gap on the
Panthers.


Kameron Keen, Quarterback for the Bears hit
Buddy Philmon with a 28-yard pass, the first
points scored by Dixie, a few minutes into the
fourth quarter. Dixie County fast man, Rodney

Thursday the 6th games were against Williston's Lady Dev-
ils! JV's game scores were 20-25, 25-19, and 10-15. The
ladies fought hard and strove for their victory. This game's
top players were: Charla Fowler, Lacey Osteen, and Kaitlyn
Ganus. Although everyone played a good game, and -
showed excellent sportsmanship, these girls
cheered the other players on the most, kept their heads up,
and most of all, played a terrific game!
Our Varsity girls won Thursday night against Williston!!!
Coming close to winning
three games in a row, the scores were: 27-25, 25-16, 23-25,
and 25-20. The, players
of Thursday's game would be Britni Robson and Kayla
Clemens. They did a great job
and played really well! These ladies played an awesome
game, kept their eye on the
prize, and came out winning!! Congratulations ladies!

Scott scooted in the conversion to add two
more points. Scott came through again, scor-
ing just outside of two minutes left in the
fourth to add six more. The conversion failed
on an incomplete pass and the Bears were
stalled 14 to 21. Scott finished the game with a
total of 21 carries for 94 yards just short of
breaking the 100-yard mark. Keen completed 9
of 15 passes for the night totaling 87 yards us-
ing Philmon and Nehemiah Aiken as his re-
ceivers. The Bears had a total of four penalties
during the game for 35 yards compared to the
Panthers 7 penalties for 70 yards. The Bear de-
fense did a good job in holding the Newberry
all-state running back Antwan Ivey to only a
total of 154 yards of rushing. Dixie's Jacob
Evans was especially effective against Ivey
during the last quarter.

During the post game huddle Coach Wilkerson
had these words for the team, "We went unde-
feated until we got to Madison last year, this
game tonight is not what our season is about,
it's about making the playoffs and that is still a
lot of football ahead of us. We need to take this
game and learn from it, we got to get better
and beat who we need to beat."
The Bears travel to Mayo next week to take on
the Lafayette (1-1). Come and support Dixie
County as the Bears take the sting out of the
Hornets. GO BEARS!

Sept. 4th: The Lady Bears put up a great fight in
our home gym at Tuesday's games against P.K.
Younge!! Even though the
victory wasn't ours, the
ladies worked extremely well
as a team and pulled togeth-
er to support one another. All
players showed good sports-
manship and cheered one
another on!! The Junior Var-
sity's game scores were 12-
,tj "-. i 25 and 16-25 and Varsity's
were 14-25, 17-25, and 16-
25. The ladies worked very
< hard and fought the victory
that was much wanted by both the JV and Varsity
teams!! Everyone did a great job, you played
hard and kept fighting back. Good luck with your
next games!!

county event with a great history
for our area. On board already: a
petting zoo, several craft artists and
a rumor of an early "Stop-by with

Making Giving A Part Of Your
Budget

(NAPSA)-Americans gave nearly
$300 billion to charitable causes in
2006, with more than $225 billion
coming from individual donors. Ac-
cording to Giving USA, the average
gift per household was about
$1,620, or just over three percent of
annual income.
If you want to join the millions of
Americans who contribute to a
charitable cause, consider the fol-
lowing tips on incorporating giving
into your budget:
Every bit counts. For
most nonprofit organizations, any
amount you can afford to give is en-
couraged-and appreciated. Contact
the charity of your choice to discuss
how a donation of any size can be
most effectively used to help make
a-difference in your community.
Budget charitable giving.
Treat your philanthropic activities
just as you would other financial
obligations. You can schedule the
payments to be deducted automati-
cally from your checking account.
Consider a write-in. Even
though solicitation forms sent out
by most nonprofit organizations
give suggested donation amounts,
you can write in an amount that fits
your budget.
Know how much of your
donation is tax-deductible. For gifts
of less than $250, a canceled check
or credit card statement is sufficient
for IRS requirements to receive a
tax deduction; a properly worded
receipt is required for larger gifts.


Also, if you receive something in
exchange for a donation-at a silent
auction, for instance-your tax de-
duction is reduced by the fair mar-
ket value of the premium.
Research matching dona-
tions. Many employers match gifts
made by their employees, and
some larger donors challenge oth-
ers with pledges of matching gifts
during a certain time frame (often at
the end of the year). If you're inter-
ested in a particular nonprofit, sub-
scribe to its e-newsletter and/or
mailing list, which regularly contains
information on matching opportuni-
ties. Oneiwell-known local bank,
SunTrust, is currently offering new
and existing clients the'opportunity
to have $100 donated to their fa-
vorite charity or to receive a $50 giift
card for their own cause. To take
advantage of this opportunity, the
clients must open a new personal
or business checking account dur-
ing the promotion period (Aug. 6-
Oct. 12), accept a new SunTrust
Visa(r) Check Card, make any pur-
chase with the new card, and com-
plete and submit an online redemp,-
tion form by November 15, 2007.
Clients can make sure their favorite
charity is eligible by visiting sun-
trust.com/mycause.
Learn more at suntrust. com/my-
cause and givingusa.org.

Many employers now match chari-
table donations made by their em-
ployees. You can also have dona-
tions deducted automatically from a
checking account.

Dixie Streets Set Community
Mood for 9-11


Fall at the I-arm a fun evening to


support Haven Hospice


(CHIEFLAND, Fla.)-Kay and Luther Drummond of Chiefland will host "Fall at the Farm," a new benefit for
Haven Hospice, at their historically restored farm on Sat., Oct. 13. Billed as a "country casual evening at
Rocky Hammock," the event will feature a silent auction, music, dancing'and dinner catered by The Ivy
House of Williston. Tickets are $75 per person, and all proceeds will support unfunded patient care and
services in the Tri-Counties area. "Hospice care is so easy to support because there are no barriers," said
Luther Drummond, who is president of Drummond Community Bank. "It's not about race or your net
worth, what you have or don't have. It's about life. When you give to hospice, you give to everybody.
Everyone faces the end of life, and hospice is there for that event."
"Supporting Haven Hospice is the right thing to do," said Sinoma Brown, who serves with Kay Drummond,
Lynetta Griner and Sheree Lancaster on the Fall at the Farm planning committee. "And seeing the Drum-
mond Farm is a bonus-worth the price of admission alone." With 400 acres of virgin woodlands in a pre-
serve of palm and pecan trees, the farm is a beautiful setting for any occasion. But its vintage homestead-
a late-1800s "cracker" house that the Drummonds discovered buried beneath tangles of vine and bram-
bles-makes it unique. Charmed by the curved front porch and the simplicity of the dwelling, the couple re-
stored the wood frame pioneer house after exhaustive research of the area's pioneer families, who were
called "crackers" after the cracking of their whips as they drove cattle into Florida from Georgia and the
Carolinas.
The cookhouse was most likely tie first structure on the property. The home also boasts a guest room
with a separate entrance-offeredto Itinerant preachers for a brief but unobtrusive stay-as well as a quilting
frame that lowers from the ceiling "We saved what we could, replaced what we couldn't, then put it. all
back together and furnished it to period," said Drummond. Both Architectural Digest and Country
Living magazines featured the home not long after the Drummonds completed the renovation.
Fall at the Farm is possibly the largest event the couple has hosted at the farm. "This will be the first sig-
nature fundraiser in this community to offer more of a casual atmosphere," Griner said "It's a very com-
fortable place and people enjoy being there," said Kay Drummond, adding that many local residents feel a
connection to it. "We invited several of the people who remembered going out to the house when the Col-
lier family owned it and could tell us stories," she added. "It's particularly nice to share the farm when the
goal is helping the community," Luther Drummond said. "While we have not personally experienced hos-
pice in our family," his wife added, "we've seen what it's meant to the families of friends whohave needed
hospice care." "Haven Hospice is near and dear to me because of the care my mother-in-law received,"
Lancaster said. "For three of my friends, Haven Hospice was like heaven on earth," said Brown, a retired
operating room director and lifelong health care advocate who decided she had to "get out and beat the
bushes" for the organization. Brown, Griner and Lancaster all served on the steering committee behind
Haven Hospice's Tri-Counties care center. "What a blessing not to have the worry and stress of driving 70
miles round trip to Gainesville for hospice care," she said. "Haven Hospice provides a service that was
desperately needed in this area," added Griner. The Drummonds envision Fall at the Farm as a celebra-
tion of the community that made the care center
possible. "We are constantly looking for ways to give
back to the community. Fall at the Farm will be a fun
evening." / Answer

"NManatees are not on the

* Manatee population monitor-
ing and assessment Scien-
tists use a variety of methods
to monitor the current and
future status of manatees,
including manatee counts at
winter gathering sites and.
estimating survival, popula-
tion growth and reproductive,
rates.
* Behavioral Ecology Re-
search on manatee use of
Florida's coastal habitats is


essential to understanding
the resources the animals
need to recover and sustain
a healthy population. By
tracking the movements of
individual manatees, FWRI
biologists collect valuable
information about manatee
seasonal and daily move-
ment patterns, migratory
behavior and habitat needs.
Researchers fit manatees
with satellite-linked trans-
mitters to keep track of
where they go.in winter.


* Human Dimensions -
Human-dimension work
aims to asses and character-
ize human influences on the
landscape such as vessel
traffic patterns and boater
behaviors including com-
pliance with regulations.
Combining our understand-
ing of manatee distributions
and vessel traffic patterns
helps to evaluate areas where
manatees may be more at
risk of interactions with
watercraft.

front lines in the battle to pro-
tect manatees from threats posed"
b) people.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC's) officers alone devoted
more than 50,U000 hours m 2006
to ensuring the safety and
welfare of the state's beloved
"sea cows." They w ork in
conjunction w ilh local or federal
officers when patrolling manatee
protected areas.
A difficult aspect of enforc-
ing manatee protection regula-
tions is dealing with the natural
attraction the gentle, slosw-mov-
ing animals pro\ idc for curious
swimmers. Human contact with
manatees upsets the natural
enm ironment of the animal, ac-
cording to several studies, and
lawmen work to separate mana-
lees from well-meaning visitors
in manatee areas. .
Conserx action officials also
offer general education pro-
grams, rescue injured animals,
and recover carcasses.


They encourage boaters to
report collisions with manatees.
Those reports may increase the
chance ofaan injured animal's
rescue and eventual return to its
natural habitat. In addition, they


can help scientists leamn more
about the kinds of boats and
motors, and the cirpumsfances
causing the most problems for
manatees.


What is a manatee?
The Florida manatee is a large brown-gray marine mammal, shaped sort of like a walrus. It has
two flippers for forelimbs and a broad, rounded tail. Although manatees can grow up to 13 feet long
and weigh 3,000 pounds, average adults fall between 800 and 1,200 pounds and are about 8-10
feet long. Their skin Is thick and finely wrinkled with sparse hair seen from head to tail. Stiff whiskers
bristle around the mouth.
Manatees, often called sea cows, browse on aquatic plants along the Florida Atlantic and Gulf
coasts and in shallow, slow moving coastal rivers, estuaries, bays and canals. Occasionally, mana-
tees range as far north as Virginia and as far west as Louisiana during the warm season, but when
water temperatures fall below 68 degrees, they return to warm waters in Florida.
Females mature sexually at age 3-5 years and bear one or two calves every two to three years
after they reach age 6. Males mature as early as age 2 or 3.
Manatees can live 60 years.


How you can help protect manatees


The best ays to help mana-
tees staN on the road to recoveery
are to abide by boating rules,
volunteer time to educate others
about manatees and contribute
to organizal ion Who administer
management,. educational and
research programs.

Manatee

management

plan will be a

first for Florida

If the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
m mission adopts the proposed
manatee management plan in
September it will be a first for
Florida.
When Florida first classi-
fied manatees as a threatened
species in 1974 and later
changed them to endangered
status in 1979, the process
didn't require a new manage-
ment plan. Also, it didn't
have a standardized evalua-
tion process for classifying
species!
That changed in 1999,. The
current process -requires that
anytime a'species is added to.
, orreclassified on the imper-
'iled species list, scientists -
must evaluate. th change--,
under specific measurements
and must produce a manage-
ment plan for the species.
The process for the
pending reclassification of
manatees from endangered
to threatened started in
2001. FWC scientists and
other experts from outside
the agency examined all the
information they could gather
to determine if the change
was appropriate. The process
also involved gathering input
from the public and included
numerous revisions to the
proposed plan.
The final step is for the
FWC's seven Commissioners
to adopt the final draft of the
new management plan. The
plan is available online at
MyFWC.com.
If Commissioners approve,
the plan during their Sept. 12
meeting at St. Petersburg the
classification will change, and
for the first time, Florida will
have a roadmhap of measur-
able goals for recovery of the
species.
The many tasks described
in the plan will require the
cooperation of many state
agencies, the federal govern-
ment, local governments and
the private sector.
The conservation goal
of this plan is to remove
the manatee from the state
imperiled species hst and ef-
fectively manage the popula-
tion in perpetuity throughout
Florida by securing habitat
and minimizing threats.

In Closing

by Kim LwdHLI DGA

Horseshoe Beach is a proud town right now! They not74
only have one of the best views in Dixie County, or inN'
the whole state for that matter, but now they have new
pavement on 5 streets!

According to City Councilman Talmadge Bennett,
Chairman of the Road Paving Committee, the completion of paving sec-
ond through sixth avenues
"The town seems to be very of the town was Phase 1 0
pleased to finally have paved ofa two part plan to pavei
all the streets.
streets"...Talmadge Bennett a the streets.
Bennett adds that this is -
the first paving efforts since the Dixie County Board of County Comn-
missioners had paved the streets going to the County Park and the Post
Office in the early nineteen eighties. .

Phase II of the project will go out for bids in March and is expected to -
complete paving of all roads in Horseshoe Beach. Bennett adds that
274,000 in funding for Phase I was covered in part by about 150,000 in available gas tax refund money from the state, and partly by CRA (Community Redevelopment Agency) funding. Phase II, which Bennett expects to go
out for bids in March of 2008, will be funded by CRA funding as well.


On Thursday August 16th, 2007, United Christian Services held a "school give-a-way" for all Dixie County students. Everything from pencils, notebooks, book bags, and erasers were given out to all that showed. In
fact over 200 people were served with school supplies this year.
United Christian Services purchased most supplies in addition to a few donations. The biggest hits this year were pencils, crayons, and book bags. Each year the schools supply a list of all that is required for each spe-
cific grade, so UCS knows what to get and the students know what they are looking for beforehand.
United Christian Services is a non-profit organization. They depend on the local churches and volunteers to truly make this work day after day, and year after year. Donations are appreciated from all that are willing.
UCS would like to put out a special thank-you to all of the volunteers that worked so hard to help this day be such a success. "You are a great group!"


City Council Accepts

Bid for Water Plant

In a routine meeting Monday night, the
Cross City City Council decided to approve
the bid of $604,000 after the only remaining
bidder both withdrew and was disqualified
from bidding. Water Tech withdrew its bid of
$680,681 without complying with the normal
bidding protocol and taking its bid security.
After the bid was withdrawn, it was discov-
ered that Water Tech no longer holds the
proper DBPR contracting license and was
not eligible to bid at all.


Ordinance 316, establishing the budget,
was passed without the assent of Council-
men Clay Locklear and Rick Gooding, ap-
parently in a protest vote over payroll is-
sues.

After a short discussion regarding the need
to encourage the legislature to allow cities
participation in the Value Adjustment Board,
the meeting adjourned.

By Sue Thomas Lander
Born September 4th, 1917 in Bell Florida, Horace Thomas is one of eight (8) -children born to Lawton
and Lina Thomas. A birthday celebration was hosted by his four (4) children and their spouses. Doyle
and Lorene Thomas, Joe and Sue Lander, Don and Brenda Thomas, and Tom and Alda Griffin enter-
tained about 100 family and friencs at me homestead where Horace and his seven siblings grew up.
The home was originally built in Williford, Florida by Horace s Granddaddy Thomas who had fourteen
(14) children. He had a business in lurpenline and railroad cross-lies. Horace's father Lawton
Thomas, as the oldest child, inherited the house Lawion and his children dismantled the house and
moved it to their homestead. The house was moved by horse and wagon over wagon trails as there
were no roads connecting this distance of about eleven (11) miles. Horace's sister Evenelle Denmark
and her daughter Jeanetie Schnauss have restored the house and graciously open it for family re-
unions and get together. -

Horace is married to the former Hazel Polk. They have been married for sixty nine (69) years; have
four (4) children ten (10) grand-children and nineteen (19) great grand-children. Horace served as
Clerk of the Circuit Court'of Gilchrist County for thirty two (32) years and prior to that worked seven
(7) years for a federal program administered by the County Agent. Horace played for the Bell Bull-
dogs and according to Cas Akins, was a member of the best basketball team Bell High School has
ever had. With only seven players, they even beat that year's state championship team, Cross City.
