Boortz gets ignored


Despite the fact that they drive on the wrong side of
the road, the British do have a few things going for them,
one of which is a major newspaper that is not totally sold
out to the priorities of fashionable liberalism. It's known as
the daily Telegraph, and among other things, it recently ran
an article that was quite critical of the global warming cult.
The Telegraph also pays a lot of attention to what's
going on in this country, as opposed to so many outlets on
the other side of the Atlantic who regard us as a lot of semi-
literate Neanderthals. That in itself makes it a pretty good'
read every now and then.
Recently, the Telegraph published a list of who they
considered to be the 100 most influential conservatives in
America, and another naming their choice as the 100 most
influential liberals.
Their top pick in the conservative column was for-
mer New York City Mayor and current front-runner for the
Republican presidential nomination Rudy Giuliani. Right
behind Rudy was General David Petraeus, followed by Matt
Drudge, Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh. President
George W. Bush was assigned number 21, his wife, Laura,
number 59, and brother Jeb'number 86.
Aside ftbm Rudy, former presidents and wannabes
fared better in the liberal column, with Bill Clinton getting
numero uno, Al Gore in second place, and Hillary bringing
up third. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (right behind the vice-
president in line of succession to the presidency) was
fourth, Barack Obama number 6, John Edwards number 24,,
a bit behind his wife, Elizabeth, who came in at 19.
Michael Moore rated an impressive 7; and perhaps a
bit of a surprise to some, California's Republican Governor
Arnold Schwarzenegger was number 8.
Oddly enough, Connecticut Senator Joe Liberman
rated 47 in both the liberal and conservative categories. Ac-
tually, he has sufficient credentials in both, so why not?
Mary Matalin got a 36 in the conservative column;
her husband, James Carville, a 74.among liberals. I'll bet
they have some interesting discussions over the breakfast
table. '
Besides Rush, clearly a good choice on the basis of
being an influential conservative, commentators and jour-
nalists to the right of political center included Laura Ingra-
ham, Sean Hannity, William F. Buckley Jr., George Will,
Michael Savage, Pat Buchanan, Bill O'Reilly Peggy Noonan,
Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin and Charles Krauthammer,
among others.
And guess who got left out? And guess who spent
considerable air time pouting? Why none other than Neal
Boortz, in case you had any doubt.
Neal really got his unmentionables in a wad when;
he found out that a veritable who's who of conservative com-
mentators made the cut, and he didn't. So naturally, he *
trashed the daily Telegraph with remarks about how they
probably have to print restaurant menus on the side to make
ends meet. '


My guess would be that Neal's problem is not his
sphere of influence, which is significant, but the fact that he
is not really all that conservative. Oh, he comes down right-
of-center on certain topics, but he consistently ridicules
Christian conservatives on the social issues. Maybe that
doesn't make him a liberal, but if it was left upto Neal,
Boortz to define the conservative agenda, we might as well
throw in the towel and let Hillary have it.

In regards to last weeks response from a Fighting Bear
Mom: Let me start out by saying the letter written con-
cerning the youth football league was not written to judge
anybody, it was not written because "one person" was
disgruntle, it was written out of disappointment. And we
all are very much aware of having to climb the ladder of
experience to get to play sports, been there and done that.
But this is where you don't have a clue of what was going
on. First of all this child to had 3 years of experience this
was not his first year, so for him to have to climb the lad-
der of experience well he did that, but he didn't play no
more this year then the 2 years before. He was lucky he got
to play 3 minutes out of. every game. So if your child was,
able to play ignore than that after 3 years then I guess you ,
should be grateful and of coarse you wouldn't feel the
disappointment we all felt and your opinion would be far
different than ours. A player is only as good as his coach
will let him be. and it's a known fact behind every good
player is a good coach pushing and teaching him to be the'
best at what he does. How do they know what talent that
kid really has if he don't get any game time playing. He
can't get experience playing the game unless he. gets to"
play the game. And I am speaking for all the kids that did-
n't get to play much no matter what their experience
was, because he was not the only one. And speaking from
experience with my two children in sports it's all about the
good players, the ones that can help make them win. That'
is why "winning" seems to be the main focus. When at this
age it should be about teaching them the game and to have
fun doing it. And to make them want to come back next
- year to learn more. If this child lacked in something in or-
der to be a good player then that's the ones the coaches
needed to spend time with at practice. That is what
practice is suppose to be about. That is what the coach is
there for to help build self-esteem, respect, motivation, ded-
ication and teamwork and most of all how to play the
game. No not all players get equal time playing depending
on their position, but I would think that he would get
to play more than 3 minutes out of every game the entire
season. The experience don't come from the sidelines it
comes from being in the game. Game time experience is
far different than practice time experience. Them,
playing against each other was one of the craziest things I
have ever seen. Sure that had to be hard on' them. I didn't

see any other teams having to do that, but maybe I missed
that along the way Maybe you and your child had a good
year, maybe all the kids on your team got equal play
time, if so I am really glad you and yours did not feel the
disappointment we felt. Yes he will move up next year
also, so that means less playing time don't it, but how less
can you go than 3 to 4 minutes per game. Oh guess it will
be not at all next year, that is really something to look
forward to isn't it. That really motivates him to want to
come back after 3 years of experience. But oh he didn't get
any game time experience so guess that puts him out of it
on game day Well I won't bother tb spend my money (sup-
porting the league) to watch him stand on the sidelines un-
til he gets some experience of which he won't get unless he
plays the game. My point here is give all players equal
playing t ime no matter the experience. To me it's a little
different in this league football than being in school play-
ing because they all have to pay to play As far as
her packing her clothes and move back home and get in-'
volved with the program. Yes we would love to have her
home. But she is away at college getting an education.
And if she was able to be here she would be right out there
in the middle of it all giving all her support. You could
count on it. As a matter of fact she would make a wonder-
ful coach, she knows more about football than most men.
And she is very mature and very intellegant. And until
she does come home I am her eyes and ears here in
her home town and especially when it comes to her nieces
and nephews. Anid her information came from somebody
that was here to support them. (me) It was not gossip and
hear say it was fact. But we do appreciate your opinion
because as you said we all have our own opinions and what
she wrote was our opinion, glad you and your child had a
good year. And I hope since he is moving up next year that
you won't be disappointed if he don't get to play much
since that is the way it works. We just hope for a better
year next year for ALL the players, that they ALL get
equal play time and they ALL learn how to play the game
to the best of their ability. But most of all that they ALL
have fun playing and that we ALL have the enjoyment of
watching them. And congratulations to ALL the teams this
year.

BOATERS AND DOG

RESCUED

FROM GULF
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) rescued three missing boaters and their dog
around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The vessel, a 19-foot boat named "Snowbird," had been re-
ported missing when the occupants did not return after set-
ting out for a fishing trip Sunday evening.
William J. Wetherington; 42, of Atlanta; his mother, Vannie
Wetherington, 70, of Valdosta; and Kelly Trezek, 41, of Mari-
etta, along with "Pugsley," were located and rescued. The
search for the boaters began Tuesday evening, when they
were reported overdue, according to FWC officials.
The FWC, U.S. Coast Guard and the Taylor County
Sheriff's Office searched the area until midnight Tuesday.
The weather had deteriorated in the Gulf and the seas were
rough. The search resumed .at first light Wednesday
According to Lt. Ken Mazzeo, captain of the FWC's
"Guardian," a 45-foot offshore patrol vessel stationed at Crys-
tal River, "I plotted a search starting point at about 35 miles
offshore. While we were en route to the area, FWC pilot
Frank Utermohlen located the vessel 32 miles offshore from
Steinhatchee."
The "Guardian" was 12 miles from that location and contin-
ued on to the vessel.
"We approached the vessel and saw three people and a dog on
board. The two women appeared to be okay, however, the man
needed medical attention," Mazzeo said. "We rescued every-
one and secured them inside the: 'Guardian.' I reiqtested a
Coast Guard airlift to get Mr. Wetherington to medical help."
The USCG helicopter's estimated time of arrival wasn't
known, so the "Guardian" continued on to Keaton Beach.
Mazzeo knew he couldn't get the large F\\C Iboat into the
channel there, so he also requested emergency medical per-
sonnel be loaded on a smaller vessel to meet the 'Guard ian"
once they got closer to shore.
"By the time the helicopter got there, we were only 2 miles
from shore, so we decided not to transfer Mr. Wetherinton, to
th aircraft at that time. We met up with the EMS personnel
and they were able to stabilize the patient while he was still
aboard the 'Guardian,'" Mazzeo said.
Wetherington was then put aboard a smaller FWC patrol ves-
sel and taken to a waiting ambulance. Trezek, Mrs. Wether-
ington and Pugsley were put aboard another FWC 25-floot pa-
trol vessel. .
,"Everyone on board was ecstatic to see us. After spending
three nights out on:the Gulf, I can certainly understand w hy."
NMazzeo said. -And Pugsley was cool too. He didn't ieem to be?
suffering any ill effects whatsoever. Best of all, he was 'boat-
broken."
According to FWC Lt. Bruce Cooper, incident commander,
during the search, "When Pugsley was transferred to my boat
with the two women, he buried his head in my chest and '
wouldn't look up. He was glad it was over. I carried him the
rest of the way back to.shore."
FWC officials state it appears the vessel's engine failed and
had an improper anchor for the ptr-.v d in ii r,'nd it ions.. The ,
boaters had drifted for several days. In, addition, their flares
did not work, their handheld VHF had dead batteries, and
their cell phone wasn't receiving a signal.
"The best safety tip I can give is to make sure you have dall the
proper, functioning equipment aboard, even if you're only go-
ing out for a short time. These folks were just going out fish-
ing for a few hours and fully intended on coming back tb
shore Sunday evening. But they ended up spending_ three
nights out there," Mazzeo said. "Th is story has a very happy
ending and I'm glad we found everyone when we did."
Cooper said, "Mrs. Wetherington told me during the ride
back that their boat had started taking on water 30 minutes
prior to our aircraft locathin-, them. She said they wouldn't
have made it if the boat had gone down."
The teamwork among FWC, Taylor County Sheriff's Office
and the U.S. Coast Guard made this a successful rescue, Coop-
er said.
"Sea and weather conditions were extremely rough and ham-
pered our local FWC assets' search abilities from going too
far. offshore,"-Cooper said. "With the addition of the aircraft,
the Guardian and the FWC's intermediate : lass .32-foot Fin-
cat, our capabilities were greatly Iimproved "

ATTENTION BIKERS

On the 9th or 16th of February 2008, the America Legion
Post 91 and Auxiliary Unit 91 is putting ona motorcycle
road rally in support of our legion programs. We have
named this event the American Legion Freedom Ride in
recognition of Independence Day and the continued sup-
port to our disabled veterans and communities. The
event will start and end at the post and will, involve at
least five different posts within the 4th District area.
Remember the success of this event means the proceeds
go towards the many legion programs we support in our
communities. Maybe you would even like to sponsor an
appropriate prize such as a custom leather jacket or oth-
er item a motorcycle enthusiast would like. Cash dona-
tions allow the event committee the latitude to utilize the
funds to purchase necessary items to promote a success-
ful event. Whatever your business, we are most appre-
ciative of your support and ask that you give freely to
this important fund raising event. If you are mailing
your donation annotate the memo portion of your check
"American Legion Freedom Ride 2008," make it payable to
American Legion Post 91 and please send it to: American
Legion Post 91, PO Box 559, Trenton, FL 32693. The event
coordinator is Mr. Harry Zimmerman and can be reached
at 386-935-2655.

Employee oft te .tonth




















Congratulations to Mrs. Jessie Thomas: she has been'selected
Employee of the Moth at Dixie District Schools Transporta-
tion Department. Mrs. Thomas started with us as a substi-
tute. She then went into full time on a route and has driven
the Jena run since starting her career. She is a punctual per-
son, who comes to work every day at the same time. We say
you can set your time by her! She keeps her bus maintained;
and seldom does she need to use her radio. When she does,
you go to answer because it is rare to have her call the office.
She has a contagious laugh that all enjoy hearing. Now, if
you want to know about the weather or something about
hunting, Miss Jessie is the one to talk with.
We are so fortunate to have her as an employee!
Congratulations, Jessie.


Teddy is a little, one year old, male Chihuahua. Ted-
dy is full of personality and is a real people lover. He'
will stick to you like glue. So, if you are looking for a
constant companion, Teddy is looking for you too. He
smiles as you can see in this picture.
A Jack Russell Terrier was found around the area of
the Trading Post on Hwy 349. This dog looks very well
cared for and we are hoping to find the owner. If you
think it belongs to you, give us a call.
We would like to thank everyone who helped out on
our quilt raffle and bake sale this weekend at "Down
Home Days" in Trenton. It was a great success. Thank
you to Becky Hale for all of her time and effort in mak-
ing the quilt and thank you to Jennifer Hale for all of
her hard work in putting everything together for the
raffle and bake sale.
We will be holding pet adoptions this coming Satur-
day at the CITGO gas station in Old Town from 12:30 to

SPRINGHOUSE
QUILTER'S NEWS

The 2007 Springhouse
Quilters Quilt Show is now
history. The winners of
the
judging completed prior to
the show by Quilt Judge,
Kathy Stubbs Ward of
Palm
Beach are listed. We espe-
cially appreciate the
ladies who wee willing to
have their quilts judged.
Judging is not a typical
"judged" forum; however,
the judging event is a way
for quilters to have their
quits "critiqued" and a
written evaluation made
by the quilt judge. In the
judging process the judge
is looking at various as-
pects of the quilt such as
pattern, color, choice of
fabric, quilting tech-
niques, and how well the
quilt was constructed.
The award winners for the
show were:

PROPERTY TAX



RELIEF ON THE WAY?


OR MAYBE NOT...ANOTHER
OPINION FROM FLORIDA
TAX WATCH


a~ ~
"'-.~


I D ixeCukI


Dear Friends,
Today is a great day for
Florida's homeowners.
The great Florida Legisla-
ture has given the people
the opportunity to create
a historic $12 billion
property-tax cut. This tax
relief is in addition to the
$15 billion tax cut passed.
earlier this summer. To-
gether, they add up to $27
billion in property-tax
cuts over five years. I be-
lieve Florida's homeown-
ers will agree that's
,good news for Floridians.
'Lt. Governor Kottkaimp
anid I visited today vith
hom 1,Wn1r_ who will
benefit
from this additional prop-
erty tax relief. In Talla-
hassee. Jacksonville, Or-
lando and Port St. Lucie,
we heard how people have
felt locked in their homes
because of skyrocketing
property taxes. This is
the same message I have
heard as I travel through-
out the state.
All over this state, re-
tirees and "empty
nesters" have 'been reluc-
tant to buy smaller
homes. Growing families
have held back on buying
bigger homes. People
have lost the 'freedom to
make the most basic
choices about their lives
because of high property
taxes. Now, with this tax
cut, if you want to move
to another home, you will
be able to take your tax
savings
with you. The transfer, or
portability, of Save Our
Homes will cut the as-
sessed value of your new
homestead in many cas-
es, by about half, depend-
ing on how long you have


lived in your current
home.
'In addition to helping
homeowners who want to
move, others will benefit,
too. Doubling the home-
stead exemption will -tax
costs because their prop-
erty taxes will never in-
crease by more than 10
percent.
The tax-cut package put
together by the Legisla-
ture is" a good one that
will help jumpstart Flori-
da's housing market and
make Florida even more
business friendly. Their
'viork ensures that you -
the pIeople of Fhlorid ci-
will have the opportunity
to lower property taxes
even more. You have the
oppor tun ity to vote three
months from today on
January 29th. Now, the
choice is up to you.
Usually when we hold a
signing ceremony, a bill
becomes law. However,
the legislation I signed to-
day is different. Instead
of creating a law, it gives
you the choice to cut
property taxes. I congrat-
ulate the Legislature for
their bold leadership and
determination to pass
property-tax cuts. Howev-
er, what they have done
represents only the first
step. The power to cut
property taxes is now in
your hands. Today is a
great day for you, people
of Florida our bosses,
but your approval of addi-
tional tax cuts could
make January 29th an
even better day.
May God continue to bless
you and the great state of
Florida,
Charlie Crist

AMENDMENT IS TOO LIM-
ITED TO TRULY REFORM
FLORIDA'S SYSTEM
TALLAHASSEE As offi-
cials hold press conferences
around the state touting the
latest legislative property
tax reform plan, Florida
TaxWatch reminds voters
that the plan really amounts
to tax cuts not true tax re-
form.
"The debate was changed
from 'the system needs re-"
form' to 'homeowners need
relief,' and non-homestead
property was left out,"' said
Kurt Wenner, Director of
Tax Policy\at Florida
TaxWatch. "There is no real
justification for increasing
the homestead exemption,
without other additional
remedies."
"The plan falls short and
doesn't deal with the real
problem that people are be-
ing slammed by high proper-
ty values and high taxes un-
der a system that doesn't
treat all taxpayers fairly,"
said Dominic M. Calabro,
President and CEO of Flori-
da TaxWatch. "We've got a
real problem. Property taxes
are making the cost of liv-
ing and doing business in
Florida unsustainable."
Perhaps most important,
Calabro added, is that in-
creasing exemptions for
homesteaded property gives
homestead voters no incen-
tive to re-engage in
local government.
"If they're saving.money
while their governments
continue to spend wildly,
they have no reason to re-en-
gage in government to
weigh in on how their tax
dollars should be spent."
Florida TaxWatch finds that
the The Taxation and Bud-
get Reform Commissioncan
and should make up the dif-
ference between where the
legislature's planleaves off
and what Florida's property
tax system really needs.
'Florida TaxWatch notes
that if the voters approve
this new amendment, future
attempts to reform non-
homestead property taxes
will be extremely difficult.
This amendment provides
two major benefits to home-
stead properties -- one need-
ed (portability) and one not
needed (double homestead.
It is extremely important to
,acknowledge that by provid-
ing more benefits to home-
steaders and attempting to
fix problems Save Our
Homes created for them, it
makes it much more diffi-,
cult to create a future consti-
tutional amendment to help
non-homestead property
that would garner enough
voter support to pass. Since
any changes to help non-
homestead property will
likely put upward pressure
on,homesteaders' tax bur-
den, these homestead bene-
fits should be part of a com-
prehensive property tax re-
lief and reform proposal that
has "something fair and eq-
uitable for everybody"
The new property tax
amendment falls far short of
what is needed. There area
number of reasons why:
* The plan gives relief to,
those \\ ho need it the least


(long-term Save Our Homes
property), while giving vir-
tually nothing to those that
have seen their taxes rise
the most (non-homestead
property).
* It will perpetuate and
exacerbate the current sys-
tem that shifts tax burden
from homestead to non-
homestead property It will
also continue to shift tax,
burden to new homeowners.
* While some solution to
portability is needed, there
are serious constitutional
concerns about providing it.
Supporters concede the
question is not answered.
The potential is there for
this amendment to lead to a
court challenge or portabili-
ty and Save Our Homes. A,
better approach was con-
tained in the House propos-
al, the 40% minimum ex-
emption for all homeowners
that is phased out as SOH
rises.
* The 10 % cap for non-
homestead property is so
high as to be of little value
to most properties. The av-
erage annual growth in the
value of non-homestead
property is less than 5%.
And since school taxes are
not
covered under the cap, it
only applies to approximate-
ly 60% of the average tax
bill. Moreover, if the non-
homestead cap works the
way Save Our homes does,
in years where a covered
property's just value does
not rise as much as the cap,
the assessment can still in-
crease 10%, as long as it
does not exceed just value.
So while-the cap may help
some properties with high
price spikes, it will be very
hard for the vast.majority of
non-homestead
properties to accumulate
any savings.
The statutory imple-
menting bill (SB 4D) does
not include important lan-
guage that all the other pro-
posals contained. To ensure
that more tax burden is not
shifted to nofi-homestead
properties, the statutory
millage cap
must be amended to ensure
that local governments truly
absorb the cost of the dou-
ble homestead exemption
and portability. This can be
done by requiring that the
rolled-back rate is calculated
before the value of these ex-
emptions is removed from
taxable value. This is essen-
tial to ensuring that these
are true tax cuts and not tax
shifts. This language has
been omitted.

DANGER!
TOP 10 THANKSGIVING TABLE
TALK LANDMINES

Thanksgiving can mean the ideal family get together
or a day of awkward moments, uncomfortable silences
and eruptions of family feuds. Here are Debra Fine's
Top 10 Conversation Landmines (from her book, "The
Fine Art of Small Talk," published by Hyperion)::

1. "Are you two ever going to get married?"

2. "No, thanks. I gave up drinking after I saw the toll it
took on you."

3. "When are you two going to make me a grandmoth-
er?"

4. "Cool Whip is interesting. Did you ever think of
serving the real stuff instead?"

5. "Aren't you full yet?" or "Why aren't you eating any-
thing?"

6. "Yes, I know you're a parent. But haven't you ever
thought about working?"

7. "I see you still can't be bothered with ironing a
blouse."

8. "How is it that your son looks just like you and your
daughter looks like she could be from a different fami-
ly?"

9. ""Did you cook this yourself, or did you just thaw it
out?"

10. "Forget this poison nonsense -- just spread the legs
open and stuff it in, the way that I always do."

HORSESHOE
BEACH GETS NOD
FOR 6.6 MILLION
DOLLAR BOAT
RAMP GRANT


TALLAHASSEE The Depart-
ment of Community Affairs to-4
day announced that 20 projectsin
communities across Florida Fr
have been awarded funds by a "
Florida Communities Trust
(FCT) to provide additional open
space and create more recre-
ational opportunities for resi- c
dents and visitors. At its annual
selection meeting Friday, the ..
FCT Governing Board voted to b 't-
award $76 million in Florida For-
ever funds for the new
local land acquisition projects. When combined with local matching funds, the grants
will result in more than $133.2 million for new local conservation efforts.

"I am pleased to see so many of Florida's communities submitting projects to
preserve their natural, cultural and historical resources, and I applaud the grant
recipients for their commitment to enrich the quality of life for all Floridians,"
said Governor Charlie Crist. "Florida Communities Trust continues to make a.
positive impact on Florida's communities, helping to make our state a more beautiful
place to enjoy for today's residents and visitors and for future generations."

In addition to'the 20 approved projects, another seven projects received contingent
funding, meaning they will be acquired through FCT contingent on funds becoming
available.

Florida Communities Trust, the state's premier program for helping local communi-
ties
preserve open space and recreational areas, receives $66 million per year through
the Florida Forever program. This yearthe program had an additional $10 million
available from funds remaining after previous acquisitions were completed. Unlike
other Florida Forever programs, FCT grants are directed to projects identified by
local communities to further the vision expressed in their comprehensive plans. This
year, the Trust received a record 118 applications from local governments and
non-profit environmental organizations seeking more than $272 million in funding
from the Trust. Communities may apply for grants of up to $6.6 million.

Projects approved for the new round of 'funding range from $340,200 for a 9-acre
parcel in Pembroke Pines (Broward County) to $6.6 million each for parks in
Horseshoe Beach (Dixie County), St. Lucie County, Pine Island Preserve (Lee County)
and Palm Beach County. The largest acquisition will be the Levy Prairie project in
Alachua County, a 3,$17-acre parcel that was approved for $3.06 million in FCT
funding to be matched by $2.04 million in local funds.

"Smart community planning includes open spaces, recreation areas and waterfront
access, and Florida Communities Trust plays an important role in making that
possible," said Department of Community Affairs Secretary Tom Pelham, who serves
as
chair of the FCT governing board. "The Trust helps communities improve the quality
of life for their residents and visitors alike."

The Florida Communities Trust was established to help communities protect land,
waterfront access, natural areas and cultural resources. Over the past 16 years, FCT
has provided Florida's communities with almost $667 million in Preservation 2000 and
Florida Forever funds. Combined with local matching funds, the Trust has produced
more than $1 billion for preservation of land for parks and open space across the
state. The combination of FCT funds and local dollars has enabled local governments
to expand conservation benefits, resulting in tens of thousands of acres acquired
for public use and enjoyment.

The Trust is administered by the Departmient of Community Affairs, which helps
Florida's communities meet the challenges of growth, reduce the effects of disasters
and invest in the community. For more information regarding the Department and
Florida Communities Trust, please visit www.dca.state.fl.us.

BEARS
continued from page 1
to 14 and it seemed the score was going into outer space. The Bears got tough. The Bears
got mean. The Bears stopped the Cowboy offense cold through the third quarter. Then
with one minute left to play, the Bear offense starts a drive lasting 10 plays with Keen
hitting Tyler Music, Aiken, and Philmon to finally set up Scott for a forty-five yard
touch down catch. The Bears close out the game posting twenty points against Madi-
son's fifty-four.

"The offense played good, the injuries hurt us and we should have been six and four for
the season." Coach Wilkerson told the tired Dixie Bears after the game as he addressed
the senior. squad. "It wasn't the kind of year we wanted it to be, we had some injuries
and things didn't work out like we thought it would, but we played a couple of good
stretches here and there." Looking ahead to next year he said to the underclassmen. "We
need to step it up in the weight room, we need to get more physical, to become stronger.
We got a long way to go, to get where we need to be, and to try to stay away from in-
juries."

Next year promises to be a good year for the Bears as Keen, Aiken, Godbolt and Scott re-
turn, as well as a host of talented JV players such as Mike West and Kyle Skelly. Hope-
fully they will work hard over the summer and come back strong. GO BEARS!

Behold the Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"The Day of the Lord""

The day of the Lord is not a twenty-four hour day, but it
is a people. John 12:24 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, ex-
cept a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it
abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth fourth much.
fruit". You and I are this fruit, His body, His Day. 1 Cor.
12:6 "And there are diversities of operation, but it is the
same God which worketh all in all." The word "opera-
tions" and "worketh"come from the same Greek word
and means an inworking. God is working His purpose
not just toward us but into us. Eph. 1:11-12 "in whom
also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinat-
ed according to the purpose of Him who worketh all
things after the counsel of his own will: that we should
be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ."
How do we become the praise eof His glory? Because he
works into us His will-because He has abounded into us
all wisdom, we can become the will of God, His time, His
Day. For us to know God's times, God will have to work
His will into us not toward us. Col. 2:2-3 "That thier
hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love,
and unto riches of the full assurance of understanding,
to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of
the Father,.and of Christ; in whoni are hid all the trea-
sures of wisdom and knowledge."
The Word unto is into. God is not bringing us up to
something, but into it. He is bringing us into all riches
of the full assurance. He is bringing us in full knowl-
edge and understanding, and it is full knowledge by rev-
elation. It is not knowledge by line upon line, but full
knowledge. It is not knowledge in part but knowledge
where part has given way to fullness. Continued next

The Word Made Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"

Continued from last week. I, the son, of man, say There
have been from the beginning in common, four churches
on this earth-one before the flood, another after the
flood, a third called the Israelitish Church, and a fourth
the Christian; and as all churches depend on the knowl-
edge and acknowledgement of one God, with whom the
members of the Church can have conjunction, and none
of the four churches above named have been in that
truth, it follows that a Church is to succeed those four,
which shall know and acknowledge the one God; for the
Divine love of God could have had no other end or de-
sign in creating the world than to conjoin man to him-
self and himself to man, and thus to dwell with him. I
the son of man, say that the former Churches were not
in the truth is plain from this circumstance, that the
Most Ancient Church, which existed before the flood,
worshiped the invisible God with whom there can be no
conjunction; so likewise did the Ancient Church which
existed after the flood. The Israelitish Church wor-
shipped Jehovah,who in himself is the invisible
god (Exod. 33. 18-23). I the son of man, say the fourth
Church, which was called Christian, did indeed ac-
knowledge one God with the lips, but in three persons,
each where of singly or by himself was God, and thus
acknowledge a divided trinity, and not united in one per-
son: the consequences of which was, that an idea of
three Gods was fixed in the mind, not with standing the
declaration of the lips in favor of one; and moreover the
doctors of the Church insist from that very doctrine of
thiers, which they composed after the council of Nice,
that men ought to believe in God the Father, God the
son, and God the Holy Ghost, all three invisible, because
exsistingin a similar divine essence before the world
was when yet,as was said above there can be no conjunc-
tion with an invisible God; for they are not yet aware
that the God who is invisible, came into the world and
assumed the Humanity that He might be made visible,
one they might have conjunction with, I the son of man,
say for it is written, "The Word was made flesh (John
1:1,14) (Isaiah: 9-6) continued next week. In Christ Jesus
name.

LYDIA BAPTIST
CHURCH, NEWS

God is great! Pastor Wayne Allen and brother Skip Lynar left Friday, along with 12 oth-
er preachers and laymen, on thier mission trip to Mexico. They only got as far as Talla-
hassee before the diesel bus sprang a huge transmission leak. Transmission fluid was
pouring out in a flood! What to do? They added a little bottle of transmission treat-
ment, then everyone disembarked and prayed hard over the engine. Within 30 minutes,
the leak had stopped-and they made it all the way to.Mexico without another glitch,
praise the Lord!
In Mexico, as a result of their preaching on Sunday, 27 people were saved. We await,
with excited anticipation, many more great stories upon their return next week.
We thank Brother Darrell Mitchell for steppin in during Pastor Allen's absence. He
preached a great sermon from Luke 19:1-10, teaching that no matter how insignificant
you feel, Jesus notices you! God knows everything about you and your situation, so,
even when you feel worthless, you are of great value to God.
Brother Benny Valentine sang two beautiful, heartfelt songs of worship and brother Ju-
nior Roberts led the services.
We are delighted to welcome Les and Rachel Miller back from their summer in Ken-
tucky--we missed you! Ms. Evalina Fowler was taken to the hospital on Sunday: we are
all praying for her.

/FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:




READING FIRST SCHOOLS ARE RECOGNIZED FOR
SHOWING SIGNIFICANT SUCCESS IN READING

The taie recently sent a letter of congratulations on behalf of the Just Read Florida office. The
Reading First Office wanted to coiigraul.ate our Reading First Schools, which are Anderson
Elementary School and Old Town Elementary School for meeting both goals over the past four
years. The goals we had to meet are (1) increase the percentage of K-3 students reading at or,
above grade level and (2) reduce the percentage of students with serious reading difficulties.
Durini. the past four years, both of our elementary schools have increased the percentage of
students reading at or above grade level, and decreased the percentage of students who are
struggling to show progress with reading.

The chart below shows our school at year one and now at year four, the reading is above grade
level. The state average at year four is 61.03. At year four, Anderson Elementary School is
80.40% and Old Town Elementary School is 70.26%, both above the state average.

At year four, you can see that the students at risk or struggling readers have been reduced to well
below the state average of 19.15%.

Old Town Elementary 58.0.6 70.26 12.20 25.39 8.61 16.78
State Average for 318 schools 54.92 61.03 6.09 25.33 19.15 6.16

Congratulations to our Reading First teams in each of our elementary schools. We want to thank
Principals Denee Hurst (AES) and Sonny Wadsworth (OTES), Assistant Principals Mike
Thomas (AES) and Karen Tillis (OTES), Reading Coaches Karen Cooper (AES), Jan Manos
i.AES. and Susan Crise (OTES), and all staff that helped students show such significant
successes. As a result, more students are meeting grade level expectations and fewer students
have serious reading difficulties compared to four years ago.

Congratulations on a job well done.

NOVEMBER IS MANATEE
AWARENESS MONTH!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Would you know what to do and where to call if you came across a manatee in distress?
Now's a good time to brush up on your manatee protection tips and facts. It's Manatee
Awareness Month in Florida! Since manatees seek warmer waters as the temperatures get.
cooler, Save the Manatee Club would like to remind all residents and tourists to pay extra at-
.tention to the endangered mammals while out on Florida's waterways. You could save a man-
atee's life.
'Anyone who spots a manatee in need of assistance, remember that help is only a
phone call away," explains Patrick Rose, Executive Director for Save the Manatee Club. "Man-
atee rescue personnel from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
provide a vital service to manatees in trouble." The FWC investigates the calls that come in
to their 1-888-404-FWCC (3922) hotline number, and if necessary, will coordinate a manatee's
rescue in cooperation with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and rescue teams from facilities
such as SeaWorld Orlando, "With continued efforts from concerned citizens and especially
members of the boating public, more manatee lives can be saved," says Rose. Last year there
was a record-setting total mortality of 417 manatees who died from all causes, and a near
record-setting manatee mortality (92) from boat strikes.
Save the Manatee Club frequently acts as a clearinghouse for injured manatee calls from the
public, helping to facilitate a successful rescue. Over the years, the Club has also assisted
. manatee rescue efforts by donating rescue boats, tracking and other equipment, as well as
funding.
People are asked to respond quickly to the following situations by calling 1-888-404-FWCC
(3922), *FWC or #FWC on their cellular phones, or by using VHF Channel 16 on their marine
radios:
If you see a dead manatee.
If you see amanatee with a pink or red wound. This means the wound is fresh.
If the manatee is tilting to one side, unable to submerge, seems to have trouble
breathing or is acting strangely
If you observe a manatee calf by herself with no adults around for an extended peri-,
od of time. Manatee calves may remain dependent on their mothers for up to two years. If
the mother dies before the calf is weaned, there is a strong likelihood the calf will not sur-
vive alone.
If you see anyone harassing a manatee in any way
If you see boaters speeding in a protected area.
If you see a manatee entangled in monofilament. crab-trap lines or other debris. Do
not attempt to remove debris by yourself. Debris may be embedded underneath the skin and
only a trained veterinarian can adequately assess and treat wounds.
If you see a manatee tagged with a radio or satellite transmitter.
There are more ways to help with manatee protection. Floi'ida shoreline property owners
can request a free aluminum dock sign from Save the Manatee Club which says, "Please
Watch for Manatees: Operate with Care." E-mail education@savethemanatee.org, or call toll
free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646) and be sure to include contact information plus the address
where the sign will be posted., ,
Also, the Florida boating public can request a free "Please Slow: Manatees Below" waterproof
banner which allows qdick.communication with other boaters whenever manatees are pre-
sent. .
Free boater awareness posters are also available to dive shops, marinas, businesses, schools
and libraries interested in displaying a poster in store-fronts and hi-traffic areas to help edu-
cate others about manatee conservation. The message says, "Navigate with Care, Manatees
are There," and encourages the boating community to "Boat Safely"
Manatee protection tips are available on the Club's website at
www.savethemanatee.org boatertips.htm. For more information on manatees, the Adopt-A-
Manatee program, or to sign up for the Club's new free E-Newsletter, visit the Club's web site
at www.savethemanatee.org.

Donald appeared before the Board

hatchee Water. He also presented the
loan agreement which was revised by
DEP Mr. Murphy stated the loan
agreement includes the pledges from
Steinhatchee Water, the pre construc-
tion monies and the first payment
must be made by 2010. If the GUA
agrees, we must come up with supple-
mental pledged revenue.

Attorney McMillan stated that
enough money will be set aside at the
beginning for the first payment. Mr.
George Edwards inquired why Taylor
County isn't on the hook. Bob Hold-
en explained to Mr. Edwards that
Steinhatchee is not eligible for fund-
ing but Dixie County is. The GUA
cannot be liable now because it isn't
formed yet. However, when the GUA
is formed, everything will rollover to
the GUA. Mr.,Murphy explained the
entire loan will not be drawn on at
one time. DEP can reduce this loan
to make the county more at ease. The
only interest paid out will be on the
money drawn. DEP recommended
paying the full amount due to the in-
terest rate. Commissioner Johnson
said that he would like to wait on the
GUA decision before making this
,commitment. Commissioner Hays
made the motion to approve the loan
agreement and Commissioner Lamb
seconded. Board approved. The,
