TRAFFIC STOP LEADS


TO DRUG ARREST


Rolling Meth Lab Busted


A late night traffic stop by the Dixie County Sher *fft"s Office, on December 13, 2007, resulted in the arrest of an individual for Manufac-
turing Methamphetamine, Possession of Controlled Substance without a Prescription, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession
of More than 20 Grams of Cannabis.
Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle that Edsall was driving for a traffic violation. The initial deputy smelled an odor that is
common with the manufacturing process of methamphetamines. Deputies used a K-9, which is trained in the detection of illegal nar-
cotics. This K-9 alerted on the vehicle for the presence of narcotics.
A search of the vehicle revealed marijuana, illegal narcotics, methamphetamine and the final stages in the manufacturing process of
methamphetamine. There were also numerous items used for manufacturing meth in the vehicle.
Arrested was Richard Edsall, age 26 of Elkton, Florida in St. Johns County. Edsall was booked into the Dixie County Jail and as of this
press release remains in the Dixie County Jail on a $150,000 boitd.

I am saddened to report to the Citizens of Dixie County that
our "All Veterans Monument" on Highway 19, just North of
Old Town was VANDALIZED, I believe sometime late yester-
day afternoon or last night December 17th.
Some months ago before the Dedication someone Dug up
Several Rose Bushes, I let that go. .
Then Several Months ago someone DUG UP or BUSTED UP
one of the Monument Memorial Marble Memorial Tiles to
one of our Deceased Dixie County Veterans and I paid out of
my own Pocket to have that Veterans Memorial Marble Tile
replaced.! A report on this Vandalism was filed with the Dix-
ie County Sheriffs Office but no one has been Charged with
the Vandalism todate.!
Now, someone has gone down to the Monunent and deliber-
atelv STOLE .-THRBE SOLAR LIGHTS on the North side of
the Monument Flower Bed. that is meant to Beautify and lit
up the Monument at Night. The Monument is ONLY OPEN
from Dawnf to Dusk each da. I o each day and check the
Monument and this morning December 18th, is when I dis-
covered this latest Act of Terrible V\'andalism!
I think it takes a Pretty SORRY PERSON to intentionally
VANDALIZE a "Veterans Monument" especially since we have
worked so HARD to Build a Monument to Honor ALL of our
Veterans and those who Serve and continue to Serve in our
Armed Forces.
Believe me me and my Members have worked LONG AND
VERY HARb for over 6 years, trying to raise enough $MON-
EY$,to be ableto Build this Living Monument to our Ameri-
can Veterans, and a lot of my Personal Money has gone in to
Completing it, which I don't regret.,We are working constant-
ly trying to Improv Vthe Monument Property with more
Beautiful Landscaping and hopefully be able to raise enough'
funds tobuild a Building for Community Events in the Fu-
ture! '
The Sheriffs Office is investigating this latest Act of Vandal-
ism, as the Previous Marble Tile that was stolen, but as of
this date no one has been Charged with the Crime.
We are Offering a REWARD for INFORMATION leading to
the ARREST and CONVICTION of the Person or Persons
who have committee these Acts of Vandalism. Anyone wish-
ing to help with any information on this Vandalism, Please
contact the Dixie County Sheriffs Office. at 498-1220. Anyone
wishing to help Contribute to the Reward Fund may also con-
tact me at the number listed below.
I wish all the Veterans and Citizens of Dixie County a "Won-
derful Christmas" and may the Good Lord Bless and Keep all
of you !
Sincerely .

They say politics makes for strange bedfelluws, u111 thiis one is among the i
nMist improbable that I've run across. It involves a presidential candidate who is an
o0 gained Southern Baptist minister an a radio commentator who is is in the habit of
saying things with which a Baptist clergyman would not likely agree.
The candidate is former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and the comn-
nntator is Neal Boortz, who bloviates daily on Sky 97 radio, They share certain con-
'srvative outlooks, which we should consider before calling attention to some signifi-
cant differences.
For instance, 'bithi men appear eager to stop illegal immigration, although
ickabee's enthusiasm for this cause was out to lunch while he was governor of
Akansas. Nobody's trying to back away from the tbreit of Islamic terrorism, at least
nkt at the moment, nor do we hejr either man sympathizing with the anti-war move-
nent.
Three subjects of Neal's frequent tirades, however, should certainly serve
tiput him seriously at odds with any conservative Southern Baptist: abortion, evolu-
JiOn and the legalization of contraband drugs.
i Suffice it to say that Huckabee appears' to be reliably pro-life, is not at all
liely to endorse a theory of origins that treats God as no better than optional, if
e1n that, As for legalizing drugs, I don't recall Huckabee ever dealing with that con-
c pt, but I rather doubt that he'd go for the idea,
Boortz, on the other hand, not only supports the "pro-choice" position, he
i! given to occasional pandering for the abortion industry. When a caller brings up
tiat subject, Neal rudely cuts him off, then proceeds to recite the mantra of the abor-
tin lobby, complete with the shop-worn cliche about "a woman's right to her body,"
etc.
As for evolution, Neal treats Intelligent Design as a way to sneak religion
into the classroom, this based on the notion that any perspective that challenges the
evolutionary hypothesis should be excluded from.our system of public education
((,ich Boortz holds in conspicuous contempt in any case).
| Actually, Intelligent Design is a viewpoint arrived at by scientists who
foiund that Darwin's process of "natural selection" was insufficient to explain the
cilmplexity of DNA; but let's not let facts stand in our way. That concept is compatible
wath Biblical Christianity, so it's got to go,
i So, where do Neal and the candidate come together? Mike Huckabee en-
dkses Neal's "Fair Tax," making him the only major candidate of either party who
hies the idea, If you're not familiar with the Fair Tax, tune in the Neal Boortz show
fI afew minutes just about any day and he'll tell you all about it.
The Fair Tax concept might look good on paper as long as you don't ex-
pbre the myriad things that could go haywire and leave us with a federal tax policy -
that's even worse than the one we already have. Just my opinion, but a lt of people
wio are smarter than I am about such matters will agree .
At least Neal doesn't endorse the use of illegal drugs, but he's sold on the
notion that making them legal will solve the problems they pose. Not likely to happen
if'Huckabee gets elected,
Neal Boortz is in love with the Fair Tax, perhaps because he's sold a cou-
ple of books on the subject. The fact that he's singing the praises of a presidential
candidate with whom he disagrees on three major issues just because that candidate
is willing to go along with his pie-ini-the-sky tax scheme really doesn't say much for


the commentator's priorities.
,r T As for Mike Huckabee, he might want to take a more critical look at the 352' 498 -3312
Fair Tax before he makes it a basic tenet of his campaign.


RESOLVE TO


SAVE A LIFE


IN 2008

As we approach the New Year, I'd like to say thanks to the
donors who took a life-saving step in 2007 and gave blood. In
this past year more than 200,000 units were donated to Life-
South Community Blood Centers and each single donation
carries with it the potential to save up to three lives, so the
impact made by those donors is far-teaching. Those efforts
have literally touched hundreds of thousands of people in
desperate need.
But as we come to the end of the year we are again facing a
shortage. The reality is that even the most faithful blood
donors get busy during the holidays or travel away from
home, so every year we struggle to meet the demand, because
that need never takes a holiday And we also know that de-,
mand will jump in the coming weeks as those patients who've
postponed surgeries to be home during the holidays will be-
gin making their way to our hospitals.
So, you can help us and your neighbors by coming to one of
our centers, stopping by a blood drive at your office or by vis-
iting one of our bloodmobiles. There is simply no substitute
for human blood, and the only solut ion to the shortage is
donors stepping up to meet the demand.
If you've never donated blood, make, your 2008 New Year's
resolut ion to try If you are already a donor, please.resolve to.
schedule one additional visit to donate in the coming year. If
we could increase the number of donors by just one percent."
it would go a long way to elin inating the shortage. It's a quiet
way you can help your comnumituy and in doing so, you'll be
saving a life, which is quite a reward for one hour of your
time


We lust buried a member of oru- family that we had for over
10 vears. She was like your shadow, she always brought a
smile and could make you laugh no matter how we was feel-
ing, she had her special ways. Always loved and never forgot-
ten ., i I ;, I I L
I am writing this in rememberance of her. For all people
who haq e pets. Do you know where your pets are? Who ever
said "dog is a mans best friend" I'm not saying all men are
that cruel. Are, you the man in the truck that dropped off that
preenate dog off the side of the road. Yes we saw you, it wait-
ed for vou to return, couldn't even leave it food and water.
How cruel she was hit by a'car, then laid there and rotted
They have a pound for unwanted animals. The men that ride
there dogs on there tool box or back of your truck when it is
100 degrees or 30 degrees it gets better how about a dog in a
dog box so small,that they can't even stand up or move
around. Then you take them to the woods to hunt then you
are to lazy to go find your dog and they get left to starve or to
get hit and you know the rest of that story. some are in the
yard chained or fenced up lucky to see food or water. I hear
dogs continually barking in the area, are they tangled up,
hungry, or need some attention. I know dixie county has a
leash law and animal cruelty laws, You can be procesecuted .
for cruelty to animals. it needs to be better enforced. these an-
imals need mor e than food and water they need love and at-
tention...In lovin memory and lots of good memories of our
baby-girl Brandi Lee.

INFORMATION



COMPONENT



1 wU, WRECKAGE


I was surprised that, on June 21, 2007, our little hometown
paper had printed an article urging people to input their
Emergency Contact information at the DHSMV
I was taken, because this system was developed after our
dear friends, Tiffany Olsen and her boyfriend Dustin Wilder,
had their lives taken after being struck on their motorcycle
by a careless driver. They lived 3 hours from here why were
they in our paper? Tiffany's mom, Christine Olson, and Rep-
resentative Bill Galvano worked together with the DHSMV to
develop a system to ensure notice is made to appropriate peo-
ple immediately. if you or someone you love is in an accident.
It took over six hours before Tiffany or Dustin's family was
notified. This new system at
www.hsmv.state.fl.us/dlcheck/findcustomer will allow for
emergency workers to be able to contact your family, as desig-
nated, a lot quicker. Our friends were riding a motorcycle to-
gether when they were struck by a car. I would like to urge
motorists this holiday season to.please take extra caution on
our roadways and watch for motorcyclists.
As a tribute to these two wonderful friends that have gone
home to our Lord, I urge everyone that reads this article to
take a few minutes and log on and register up to three people
as their contacts.
IN MEMORY OF
Dustin C. Wilder
and
Tiffany Olson

rattling antlers lightly This big wide 10 pointer stood up
fftb'm under a cedar tree about a hundred yards away, and
snorted. I turned over my deer can (bleat call) and he
charged towards the other two deer."
He was taken at about 75 yards with my 30-06, he is 15

MILITARY PAY RAISE PASSES SENATE

Bill will train, equip U.S. military; measure headed
to White House for President's signature

WASHINGTON U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) today vot-
ed in favor ofthe Fiscal Year 2008 Defense Authorization Act.
This legislation authorizes program and project spending for-
the Uifited States military and includes a 3.5 percent pay in-
crease for all uniformed personnel. The measure also adds
more than $17 billion for mine resistant vehicles (MRAPs),
and helps to guarantee that the U.S. has the best prepared and
equipped fighting force in the world. The measure passed the
Senate by a vote of 90 to 3.

"We are ensuring that our men and women in the military
have What t Uhy need to carry out their missions," said Mar-
hinez, a member of the Senate Armed Services Conimittee.
"This increases the pay for military personnel and invests in'
pew technologies to keep them safer on the battlefield.
This measure also calls on the Department of Defense to im-
pi-ove military medical care by utilizing a patient tracking
system. As part of the lar-ger Defense Authorization bill. I be-
lieve these types of programs will greatly improve military
operations in the long term."

Senator Martinez successfully offered an amendment requir-
ing the-Department of Defense to study the feasibility of im-
plementing a standard Soldier Patient Tracking System. Such
a system would allow patients and their families to locate and
tmderstand exactly where a patient is in the medical
holdover (MHO) treatment process.

Senator Martinez also added a provision to end the construc-
tion moratorium at Fort Buchanan. Pur-erto Rico. Repealing.
the moratorium will allow the military to move ahead with
construction projects thatohave been on hold, including the
construction of improvements to family housing, a perma-
nent fuel point for government vehicles, and a new Direc-
torate of Emergency and Security Building. It will also allow
for the construction of a Militaiy Entry Processing Station
facility for recruitment.

Highlighted provisions affecting Florida:
The authorization extends language that established the Na-
tional Flight Academy, based at the National Aviation Muse.
um Foundation on Naval Air Station. Pensacola. giving the
foundation more direction in the ability to teach the science,
technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines that im-
pact on and deal with aviation.


BLOOD BANKS GET A BOOST
FROM TECHNOLOGY


15*


'Phr.',:' ,capai ,,.
With improvements in the software for the apheresis platelet ma-
chines, a donor like Mark Subacius from Gainesville, Fla., is able
to give three full units of platelets in a little over.an hour
Platelets are the blood component most in demand, and the im-
provements have allowed the machines to extract the platelets
from the bloodstream quicker and more efficiently


The process may look old-fashioned, but today's blood
banks are tapping into technology to meet the growing
need for blood at'a time when donors are harder to find.
"Many people think it goes directly from the bloodmobile
to the hospital, they don't have any idea what we do with
it in between," says Jill Evans, corporate director for op-
erations for LifeSouth Community Blood Centers.
Technology helps LifeSouth better utilize the donors who.
stop at blood drives or visit the centers, while also mak-
ing that blood supply safer for those in need.

Possibly the first encounter with this new advanced tech-
nology may occur right on the bloodmobile. where new'
machines allow for "double-red" donations. With a tech-
,nological assist a donor may give the equivalent of two
donations of red blood cells in a single visit. The new ma-
chine takes whole blood from the donors, separating out
the red cells, and returns the pla--m and other blood
components to the donor through the same needle, a
process known as apheresis. The machines are now small
enough to fit on the bloodmobiles.

"It's allowed us to take automation into the field," Evans
explains.

While a regular whole blood donor may donate every
eight weeks, double-red donors may donate every 16
weeks, which is a better fit for some donors who are
pressed for time. Currently only about five percent of
Americans donate blood regularly, so saving time and,
making the donation more convenient is important. For
donors, Evans says, "It's like increasing your charitable
donation without doing anything more."

The oxygen-carrying red blood cells are the most used of
all blood components for transfusion. For a typical whole
blood donor, the donated unit is taken back to a hub
where it is processed and divided into specific compo-
nents: red cells, plasma and platelets. When it's time for a
transfusion at. the hospital, a patient receives only the
specific component that is needed.

"If you're anemic, you just need the red cells, you don't:,',
really need the plasma component or the platelets that
are in that whole blood," Evans says. '"That way three
people can be helped with a single whole blood donation."
The technology that allows a donor to just give red cells
also works for platelet apheresis, and that technology has
also improved. Platelets, which are responsible for clot-
ting, are the blood component that is in highest demand.
Evans explains that's partly because they are scattered ~o
sparsely in the blood, accounting for less than 1 percent
of the volume of the blood stream. To get one unit of .
platelets for a typical transfusion requires separating the
platelets from more than eight whole blood donations,
Evans says. And once outside the body, platelets have the
shortest shelf life of any blood component, only five ;
days.
But just as the double-red machines extract only the red.,
blood cells, the apheresis platelet machines remove only
the platelets and a small portion of plasma. Evans saysr-
the software that runs these machines has advanced sig-::-
nificantly. making this process much faster and more effi-
cient. In some cases a donor can give as many as three
full platelet units in-under two hours.

And while the apheresis platelet machines arte still quite
bulky. LifeSouth has started taking them to blood drives,;
at businesses and schools. where there is space to set up a
mobile donor room.

"It's been hugely successful for us. we never dreamed this
was going to go so well." Evans says.

And because the body replaces platelets and plasma much
quicker than red cells, a platelet donor canr donate every
28 days if they wish. Evans adds.

The biggest technological advances have occurred in the
laboratory, where the blood is tested before it is released
to the hospitals for use. Currently a blood sample from
every unit undergoes nine different tests to screen for
seven different disease-causing viruses, including HIV.
syphilis, hepatitis. West Nile and Chagas. Evans says as
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves new
screening tests, those are added to the lineup.

Not only are there more tests than ever before, but those
tests can now detect viruses earlier. In 2000 an improve-
ment in the HIV test shrank the window between expo-
sure and detection from 16 days to 10. A new test imple-
mented in May of this year narrowed the time between
exposure and detection of Hepatitis B from six weeks to
19 days.
"The advances in the laboratory to screen the blood for
safety are huge." Evans says. "The blood is safer because
of the level of testing we're doing .

Evans says the sophistication and complexity of modern
surgical procedures have spiked the need for blood. And
while modern technology has helped meet that need, the
key is still finding donors.

"While the advances have made it more convenient and
safer, the system still relies on the goodness of volunteers
to step forward." she says. "If you've been a donor in the
past, please come back. If you've never donated blood,
please consider it. One hour of your time could make a
life saving difference."


MAYORS REJECT
NEW TAX PLAN

TALLAHASSEE The Florida League of
Mayors today joined an ever-increasing num-
ber of groups who oppose Amendment 1, the
Jan. 29 tax plan that will be decided by;
Florida voters. Stephen B. Feren, president
of the Florida League of Mayors and
Mayor of the City of Sunrise, denounced the
Legislature's property tax plan today
as an "unfair tax debacle that will hurt
young families and schools and small
community businesses."

"The amendment makes an already broken
tax system worse," Feren said. "There
is no way we can support a tax plan that pun-
ishes families and their children who
live and work in our communities."

Feren cited several harmful trade-offs that
will result if, the amendment passes: a
broken system where neighbors pay higher
taxes than neighbors; an unfair tax penalty
that punishes young families trying to buy
their first home; and billions in cuts to
Florida's cash-strapped public school system.


According to an independent analysis by
Florida TaxWatch, the proposed amendment
"gives relief to those who need it the least,
while giving virtually nothing to
those that have seen their taxes rise the
most." TaxWatch also noted that the plan


will "'perpetuate and exacerbate tne current
system.that shifts tax burden from
homestead to non-homestead property" -
which will punish small business owners
and first-time homebuyers. ,.,

Other groups oppose the amendment as we .
A coalition of labor, teacher and
social-service groups have formed "Florida is
Our Home," a committee to campaign
against the proposed amendment. The mem-
bership of the Florida League of Cities
voted in November to oppose the measure.

"Why would anyone vote for a scheme that
would give brand new tax benefits and tax
caps to landlords and owners of vacation
homes, condos and beach-front villas '
even if they don't live in Florida," said Fer-
en, who contrasted the high civic
costs of the amendment with the scanty ben,'
efits less than 66 cents a day -
that the average Florida family would re- ,
ceive.

The Florida League of Mayors also empha-
sized the unknown fiscal impact of the ,
measure. "It is impossible to guess who will
take advantage of the plan's new
portability feature," Feren said. "This
means that some citizens who have lived
in their houses for 20 years may pay higher
property taxes than their new neighbors.
Citizens should VOTE NO on Jan. 29."

STEINHATCHEE
BAPTIST NEWS

As we each celebrate the
birth of JESUS CHRIST at
this time of year we may see
many things that perhaps we
only see during the holiday
season. Each year we bring
out or buy all these different
items that brings back pre-
cious memories of past
years, or a family tradition,
or maybe something we pur-
chase each year. It could be a
star, or ornaments, garland,
tinsel, CHRISTmas cards,
wrapping paper, recipes, or
CHRISTmas candy and can-
dy canes. Do you know the
legend of the candy cane?..."
A candy maker wanted to in-
vent a candy that would in-
corporate several symbol for
the birth, ministry and death
of CHRIST. He began with a
pure white stick of hard can-
dy-white to symbolize the
virgin birth of the sinless
nature of JESUS, and hard to
symbolize the solid rock, the
foundation of the church and
the firmness of GOD'S
promises. He molded the can-
dy in the form of a "J" to rep-
resent the name of JESUS. It
could also be the staff of the
GOOD SHEPHERD. Think-,
ing ?the candy looked some-
what pl ain, the candy mak-
er added red stripes. He used
three small stripes to repre-
sent the stripes JESUS re-
ceived at the hands of the
soldiers. The large red stripe
was for the blood shed by .
CHRIST on the cross so we
could have eternal life. The
peppermint flavor of the
cane is similar t6 hyssop,
which is in the mint family
and used in Old Testament
times for purification and
sacrifice. JESUS is the pure
LAMB OF GOD who came to
be a sacrifice for the sins of
the world." So let's remember
how special a peppermint .
candy cane is at CHRISTmas
and all year round as we
move into 2008!

Need to Know Info This Week


Decemberr 20-Jan 2 CHRISTMAS BREAK--NO SCHOOL!
gec 20 DCHS vs. Branford 5:30 (V)


42 HEAD-SMACKINGLY SIMPLE THINGS ABOUT
'HOMESCHOOLING (I LEARNED, THE HARD WAY)
i Don't buy an expensive boxed curriculum the first
year. Or ever, for that matter.
* It's fine to skip a day. Skip two.days. Pretend like the
Sds are in public school and turn on a Disney movie
Id go play on the internet, Don't feel guilty.
3 Just because a homeschool product is expensive, does
Sot make it good, or suitable for your kids. Sometimes,
the $7.99 workbook is a.betterfit for your homeschool
-than the $200 DVD math program.
ai Take advantage of help offered by friends and family
,tget some time to yourself. You need it much more
than you think.
5. Don't spend your alone time making lesson plans;
(See number 4).
6. Totally IGNORE what your friends' kids in public
schools are doing; it will only make you crazy.
7. Don't try to defend your lifestyle or advocate home-
schopoling to your sister or best friend who sends her
kids to government schools. It's a losing battle, makes
everyone defensive about their choices, and can destroy
relationships. Just agree to disagree.
8. Use a diary-style notebook to assign work to keep
kids on track and for easy record-keeping.
9.. Stop worrying so much about cleaning house. It just
gets dirty again. Settle for "clean enough,"
10. .Put kids to bed early. They need their sleep, you
ne6d some quiet time. Everyone wins. Ignore the in-
evitable whining that so-and-so gets to stay up until
10:00.
11. Don't buy a violin at the state homeschool conven-
tion unless you know A LOT about violins.
12. Relax, and have faith in the process. Don't worry,
too much, and don't feel guilty You are doing enough,
the kids are learning enough, and everyone will grow up
just fine and have productive lives whether or not they
learn how to properly diagram sentences.


Representing RRMS as Student of the Month for Novem-'
ber is: Kyle Lamar, Felicity Mejeris and Chelsy Cannon.
Kyle Lamar is the son of Danny and Bobbie Joyce
Lamar of Old Town. His favorite school subject is PE
and his hobbies include playing football, baseball, and
soccer, as well as riding his 4-wheeler. Kyle's friendly
disposition, positive attitude and helpful nature make
him a pleasure to be around. Congratulations, Kyle!!
Felicity Mejeris is the daughter of Joe and Alicia
Mejeris of Cross City. Felicity is very conscientious
about her schoolwork and gets along well with others.
She is active in the Beta Club and FFA and enjoys play-
ing softball and riding horses. Congratulations, Felicity,

ST. LEO UNIVERSITY NEGOTIATES
GILCHRIST CAMPUS
Photo and Story By Stacey Lynn Brown
St. Leo University, a well-known name around Gilchrist
County, has received approval from the Gilchrist County
School Board to locate a campus at Trenton High School.
At the Tuesday evening board meeting, Chuck Oden and
Deana King attended to give a presentation about the fea-
sibility and advantages of locating a campus in Trenton.
Mr. Oden is the director of the,
North Florida Community Col- ..
lege extension of St. Leo in
.Madison and Lake City, and Ms.
'King:is' a regional director and f 1 .
vice president of continuing edu-
St. Leo already has had a great
impact on Gilchrist and the sur-
rounding counties, as it gradu-
ates many teachers that go on to
teach in the local school systems.
St. Leo University offers upper-
level classes, from bachelor's to
master's degree, in educa-
tion, business, psychology,
criminal justice and .other
careers. Mr. Oden and Ms.
King stated that most St.
Leo students are going
back to school or beginning
a new career later in life,,
so a long commute and the
inconvenience of attending
other universities in north
Florida may keep some
from pursuing a higher ed-
ucation. A Trenton cam-
pus for St. Leo would make
that education possible and
will offer an increased
number of career options.
They stated this campus
would conveniently serve
Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy
and other surrounding
counties.
The campus would run
year-round and would also
offer online classes for

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:

EDUCATION AND EVOLUTION
The State is in the process of developing and approving
changes to its science standards to follow Darwin's theo-
ry of evolution. The standards that are approved by the
State Board of Education would be taught in every grade
level and tested in the eleventh and twelfth grades.
Darwin's theory of evolution has been discussed in our
school science classes for a long time as one theory of
how organisms have developed over time. But the con-
cern now is that the state is developing an "evolution ex-
clusive" curriculum. Because we live in democracy, our
schools have always been able to present differing ideas,
concepts, and theories to generate open minded discus-
sions to gather a wide scope of information.
Donna Calloway, a member of the State Board of Educa-
tion sparked a fury of debate recently with her com-
ments to a newspaper. She told the newspaper that evo-
lution should be taught but not "to the exclusion of oth-
er theories of the origins of life."
Many scientists agree that the theory of evolution has so
many unanswered unproven questions that it can't be
proven. Many scientists say that Intelligent Design, an-
other concept has merit and warrants discussion be-
cause organisms can't develop unless they have all com-
ponents for life in place and in order. There is intelli-
gence in the design of all organisms. If you take any
part of the design out, the organism does not develop.
Parents from Jacksonville recently traveled 200 miles to
meet with the State Board, but were not allowed to
speak. The State Board also declined to address the evo-
lution education issue at that meeting.
What our district wants the public to know is once the
State Board of Education sets the standards to be taught,
schools will be expected to teach them. We know that
many-citizens are very concerned about this issue. The
State Board of Education should hear from these con-
cerns before they decide the science curriculum for the
entire state. If you are concerned about the "evolution
exclusive" curriculum being taught in our schools, you
may contact the Florida. Commissioner of Education at
Commissioner@fldoe.org or (850)245-0505 or the State
Board of Education.Chairman; Willard Fair at (305)696-
4450. For additional State Board of Education contact
information, the website address is

goes as planned, St. Leo would like
to begin offering classes inlAugust
of 2008.
Robert Clemons, school board
chair, commented that the arrange-

tion."

Tor many of us, sad-
Cy, the spirit of
Christmas is "hurry ".
And yet, eventuauy,
the hour comes when
the rushing ends and
the race against the
caendTar mercifury
comes to a cose,. qt is
only now perhaps
that we truly recog-
nize the spirit of

Christmas. qt is not a
matter of days or
weeks, but of centuries
nearly twenty of
them now since that
holy night in 'Beth e-
hem. Regarecdin this
manner, the yre -
Christmas rush may
do us greater service
than we realize. With


aits temporal confu-
sion, it may just help
us to see that by con-
trast, Christmas itself
is eternal Burton

and with all the other trimmings, had a great Christmas
party. Thanks to each quilter who participated in the
preparation and those taking the time to attend the par-
ty There was a few moments of serious business when
the new 2008 officers for Springhouse were installed and
will now assume their duties the first of January.
Springhouse Quilters would
like to extend Christmas ( "A9
wishes to each and
everyone in the cominu- ( 4!
nity The year 2007 was a )
wonderful year and we -
are all looking to 2008 for
another fun-filled quilting
year. There is much to learn
and beginning in January,
Springhouse will again begin their
monthly business meetings and
workshops. Beginner quilting classes
will also begin the last of
January. To join the quilting classes, an individual will
need to pay their annual dues. This is a very nominal
amount. The most difficult requirement for being a
member of Springhouse will be to participate in the an-
nual quilt raffle and compete one community service
project. Community service projects are something we
really believe in. We try to return a small favor to the
community by providing a community service through
our quilting activities.
Plans are also being made for a very special event to be
held in March. This event will coincide with National
Quilting Day and will feature antique quilts. Watch for
more information on this project.
Merry Christmas to all. Thanks for reading our news.

Scott, 463-2207, or Jan Litzinger, 463-3971.
