een noted that the waters of the Steinhatchee River and Gulf lifeblood of both communities and
with the marinas leaving the area, access to the water has become limited. With development

Judas Iscariot, Superstar?
If I were to tell you that Adolf Hitler had written the onl
authentic account of World War II, and that Churchill and th
others who described that classic conflict were merely indulgin
their own self-serving ends with their descriptions, you'd probably
think I'd been growing some of that weird weed in my herb garden
: And of course, you'd be right. (By the way, I don't even hav
an herb garden, so don't bother checking me out.) The point is
nobody in his/her right mind would believe that Hitler was the her
o-: f World War II, while Roosevelt, Churchill, Eisenhowe
MacArthur, Patton and the rest of our guys were just in it for fur
profit and publicity.

However, somebody has dug up an ancient manuscript, alleged
to be "The Gospel of Judas Iscariot," Judas being a rather improb
able candidate for authoring an accurate account of the life and
times of Jesus Christ.
For the benefit of you who didn't and/or don't pay attention ii
Sunday school, who sleep in church, or don't even attend, Judas
Iscariot was one of Jesus' 12 disciples and the group's treasurer. He
was also the one who betrayed Christ to those plotting to kill Him.
I've heard it said that Judas was a faithful Christian, but that he
was predestinated (presumably by God) to betray Jesus, and
therefore had no choice in the matter. Another theory holds tha
Judas undertook the betrayal in hopes of forcing Jesus to assert His
Messianic authority and put down the Roman occupation of Israe
: right then and there. Frankly, I have serious problems with both o0
' these views.


Then we have the "Gospel of Judas," as described in a recent
TV special on National Geographic channel. According to thi
account, Jesus called Judas aside at the Last Supper and, trusting
him as the only one of the 12 who really understood the situation
instructed him to undertake the betrayal so as to fulfill Ol
Testament prophecy.
Incidentally, the four accredited Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luk
and John, for the benefit of those raised on Sunday morning T'
cartoons), indicate that Judas was motivated by Satan, with a little
help from his own selfish interest, i.e., the 30 pieces of silver.
It seems this controversial "Gospel of Judas" was discovered in
a cave somewhere in Egypt, a rather unlikely resting place for
Christian document. It was written in an ancient Egyptia
language with which Judas would not likely have been familiar, s
it must be assumed that it is a copy-which of course is not in itsel
sufficient grounds to dismiss it. However, it is puzzling how Juda
would have found an opportunity to complete his "gospel" in th
short time between the Last Supper and his own suicide, even
assuming that he had begun the work earlier.
Thus, it would appear that Judas probably did not write thi
"gospel" himself. (The TV special speculates that the four author
of the recognized gospels were not those named, however this poin
was essentially unsubstantiated.)
So, if Judas didn't write it, who did? And if Judas was innocent
of any intentional wrongdoing, why did Jesus say it would hav
been better for Judas, had he never been born? (Matthew 26:24-25)
The antiquity of this "Gospel of Judas" was established through
carbon dating, which does not in any respect establish th
authenticity of the item. Revisionist history is not exclusively
phenomenon of the past half-century. The archeologists have don
their job well, but their efforts have left us with no reason to
question the accuracy of the Bible as we know it.

Juvenile

On Arson

Charges
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On April 6th, 2006 the

Enforcement arrested an Old
Town juvenile on four counts
of arson. The charges
stemmed from a month-long
fight of fires set in the Old
Town area.

and continued throughout the
month. The 14-year-old not
only set the woods on fire
seven different times, but also
burned down a double-wide
mobile home and an adjoining
single-wide being used for
storage.
An investigation into the
fires led officials to the
juvenile who was arrested and
charged with the setting. the
fires on the two structures and
two of the fires started in the
woods. The arresting officer,
Carl Hodson was from the
Office of Agriculture Law
Enforcement based in
Tallahassee. The juvenile was
transferred to the Juvenile
Justice Center in Gainesville.
Local. Volunteer Fire
Departments, State Fire
Marshal's Office, Division of
Forestry and the Office of
Agriculture Law Enforcement

Letter To

The Editor
A recent article in the
Letter to the Editor was a
disturbing reality of how
insensitive our society has
become.
I applaud the person who
addressed the issues of
mistreatment of animals.
The animals of the Planet
Earth, the fowl of the air, the.
fish of the sea and everything
that creeps upon the Earth we
have been given dominion
over to protect.
The reality is most hunters
love and care for their animals,
but some are like the rest of the
humans of the Planet they use
and abuse them.
The "Truth" that hurts is
that there are more house or
yard pets in most Animal
pounds or Shelters than any
other type of animal.
But, the real problem is
the way humans think with
their brain and not their heart.
Neither crime nor sin can be
stopped completely so long as
selfish disregard for the well
being of humans and animals
remain so dominant in our
human thinking.
It is important to realize
that the mere existence of
human or divine la%\ s does not
guarantee observance.
Effective rules of conduct,
require commitment from all
humans to respect, obey and
support one another. If that
caring is not there, their
insensitivity will prevail. The
problem is within our reach,,
but until humans begin to care
about each other's health and
well-being, why should the
health condition of an animal
matter to anyone except our
Creator.
Divine or Civil Law
abiding attitudes are "learned"
not inherited at birth. A child
who grows up in an
environment of commitment to
respecting and honoring the
rights of others is much more
likely to make such behavior a
personal lifelong habit of
caring.
To do what's "Right" in
the eyes of the Creator is to
make everyone's life just a
little bit better each day.
Blessed My Grace
H.P. Fuquay


Letter To

The Editor
Concerning the Letter to
the Editor printed in last
week's Advocate. I can
appreciate that everyone has a
right to his/her own opinion.
but to publicly slandering
someone's character, whether
they are in the public eye is
morally wrong. As for County
Commissioner Alton Land, he
is one of the most genuine
people who has held a position
in office in the County and
after 30 years serving the
County he has always went out
of his way to help the poor, the
elderly and Dixie County's
youth. He has answered phone
calls when most would have
ignored or let an answering
machine answer the calls. He
has served this community and
I do not think people who are
quick to condemn would want
the job of our commissioners. I
uphold and respect them!
I personally would not
wish to have the job of trying
to please and help most
everyone, and being called
upon to please and do what

by Art & Karen Wyckoff

This month you will need to put on your scarf and hat due ti
the spring winds. These winds combined with the warming
temperatures are two factors that the successful gardener musd
contend with. The past month of March did not offer up much
rain, therefore, any new planting, seedlings, or transplanting that
you were involved in need to be monitored for watei
deficiencies. Just as the wind dries your clothes hanging on the
line, it also effects'the transpiration rate on a plants' lea~ es.
Along the same line, if you acquire a hanging basket or keep
plant in a pot in a permanent decorative pot, it too will require a
little more attention with windy weather. A couple of tips abour
hanging plants: 1. If the basket feels unusually lightweight, i't
may mean there is not much soil left in the basket or pot. Time t0:
either split it up into a couple of baskets OR put it into a bigger.
pot or basket and add some fresh food (soil). 2. Watering in.
frequent small amounts is preferred over sporadic larger doses'
for success. 3. Know your plants. Some species do not to b.j
watered on top of the leaves as fungus may result and harm otr
kill it. Water this type at the roots or level of the soil under th&
fronds or leaves.
This may be a good time to advise all new gardeners about the,
general types of plants so they can make good decisions in their,
selections in the future. Success breeds enthusiasm and
enthusiasm leads to having fun. General plant types include'
annuals, perennials, deciduous and evergreens.
Annuals: these types of plants can produce lots of flo ers;,
tend to be more sensitive to weather and water, therefore.
requiring a little more care than others. These are the ones :hat'
add colors to the painting of your.garden. It may surprise you 6t!
kno%% that some will reseed and suddenly appear next season; eg:i
marigolds, periwinkles
Perennials: This type of plant or shrub has roots that sursi %.
the winter frosts in the right zones. (our zone is 8-9) Some ofi
these may look like they are D dead in February and March, buf
you need to check the base of the trunks for the light green leaves
appearing as signs of life. Some area favorites: heather, laniana,.,
plumbago, butterfly bush, butterfly milkweed, daylilies and blue:
daze.
Deciduous: these are the trees -and shrubs that cause you to
rake their leaves at least once a year. Generally, this type is easy-
to maintain and hardy. Give them some spring food and off they.:
go!
Evergreens: This group does just what the name implies they
stay green all, year long. One caution when selecting an
evergreen, check out its mature height before buying. Some
species look similar to one another when they are young, but are;
monsters; some of which attain 50-60 feet!.
As of March 21st, spring has officially sprung. Flowers are
blooming, blossoms are full of fragrance and it is a good time to7
observe some plants that you would enjoy in your own backyard.-
Do your research about the required sunlight, size, and special
maintenance required. Check out the website of Greenbeam.com.
or ask a qualified plant specialist at a local nursery for advice'
and ENJOY!

everyone wants of you and the
truth is you can't please
everyone! Mr. Alton stands up
for what he believes in and I
would be sure that he would
not begrudge anyone from
making an honest living.
-As for the bar in Old
Town, the "Southern Nights."
as you called it, a while back, I
was in route with my child and
grandchildren in the car and
one of the "'Southern Nights"
patrons Awho helps make the
owner an honest li% ing pulled
out' onto the highway causing
my daughter to have to slam
on brakes to keep from being
run into by the patron. This
person who helps make the
owner an honest living, could
have easily taken four lives
that evening!
Our county's youth have
enough against them, coming
from an area with not a lot to
keep them entertained. I
certainly would rather have my
child down the road at one of
the churches within 1000 feet
of the bar, than to have them
being hit by a car leaving the
bar or by getting beverages
from the bar.
And as for as Mr. Lester
Paulk who a year ago did work
for me it was a disaster, my
garden tub was not broken, but
after the renovation- it is now.
I explained that my garden tub
.3.-


was in perfect shape until they
put in a new tub surround.
Now the tub and surround hlas
a crack, which they patched,
but it looks awful. My vinytlis
coming up close to the back
door and I needed air vegts
after the metal was put on my
roof. Now my electric bill is
awful.

Compost & Mulch Site?.,
A compost and mulch site
where you could shred trees
and plant waste would be great
for our city. The households
on city garbage routes could be
instructed to separate yard/tree
debris for a pickup on another
day. All city trimmings and
mowing could also be
shredded. ::
The compost and mulch
could be made available to the
public for a nominal fee, per
pick-up load .or less. This
would encourage a cleaner
community and lessen the
landfills.

Registration Deadline Is May 5
For Next Nationwide ACT Test
The next nationwide ACT test date for college-bound high,
school students is Saturday, June 10, 2006. Students must register
online or have their paper registrations postmarked by the end of,.
the day May 5. Late registration postmark deadline is May 19 (an,
additional $18 fee is required for late registration after May 5).
The June test date is a popular one for juniors. Around two-
thirds of test-takers in June have just completed the eleventh grade.;
Many of them take the ACT, check their scores and then decide
whether to re-test in the fall or winter of their senior year. By,
looking at their scores during the summer, students can study to,
boost academic weaknesses before taking the test again as seniors.,
ACT allows students to report only the scores that they want to
colleges. Students can choose not to automatically report their;
scores when they register for the test.
The ACT includes an optional Writing Test. Most colleges do
not require a writing score, so students should check the
admissions requirements of colleges they're considering before
registering for the ACT. The cost is $29 without and $43 with the
Writing Test.
Students can receive registration information from their high
school guidance counselors or they can register online .at
www.actstudent.org. The website also features test tips, practice
tests, an online test prep program, and a database for students .to
find out if a prospective college requires a writing score.
ACT scores are accepted by virtually all colleges and
universities in the nation, including all Ivy League schools. The
ACT is an academic achievement exam that includes four tests;
English, reading, math, and science. Students who opt to take the
Writing Test will add 30 minutes to the normal 3-hour testing time.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 2006


"ARRESTS"
Continued from front page
Michael Iacvele of Old Town was arrested on three counts of
Sale of Prescription Pain Pills, his bond was set at $75,000.00.
Anthony Washington, also of Old Town, was arrested on one count
of the Sale of Crack Cocaine. Washington's bond was also set at
$75,000.00. The final warrant was served at the home of Teketa
N. Robinson. Robinson was arrested on one count of the Sale of
Crack Cocaine. Her bond was also set at $75,000.00.
A Sheriff's Department spokesman noted that they stand by the
"NO'TOLERANCE" rule and will continue to work on getting the
drug situation in Dixie County under control.

"BOAT RAMP"
Continued from page 5
Meg Infirorati-Fleming provided a power point presentation on
eight right-of-ways that could be developed if the commission
chose to do so. There was The Landing, Central Ave., 14ff St., 13h
St., 1st Ave. South, 2nd Ave South, Main St. and 4h St.
Other larger ramps on the discussion table was the Reichel
Property, Edwards Development, Dixie Mouth of the River, Dixie
Ramp West of Bridge, and 4th St. West/Woods Long Range.
The SBRC recommended the canal that is located on the east
side of the old Woods Marina, which is on 2nd Ave, between 3rd
and 4th Streets. This location is close to the mouth of the river and
while there are some environmental issues with the dredging, the
committee has been told those issues could be worked out.
It will be a two phase project with the first phase for short term
access, until permitting could be acquired for the second phase.
Phase I would utilize an existing canal which would be dredged
and a boat ramp put in with parking along 2nd Ave. and 4h St.
Phase II would continue the canal across 2nd Ave. to the county
owned land and springs behind 2nd Ave. and create a large bowl for
holding boats while people put in and take out their boats. The
Wood's Marina management team who are developing this area
have promised to come on board with the project and help acquire
land surrounding the boat ramp that could be used for additional
parking.
Phase I could be completed by June of 2007, while Phase II
could take two to four years due to the permitting process.
The Taylor County Commissioners agreed to support the
project conceptually. Their concerns were cost, funding, getting
state support, timeframe, spoil site and seawall. They repeated that
they will not spend Taylor County monies in a Dixie County
project.
Commissioner Lamb stated that Dixie County had not asked
Taylor for funding. Commissioner Valentine noted that Dixie
County was still looking into continuing to work on an existing
ramp located in Jena. While the ramp is a little more upriver, it is
already established and being used now. The big problem is
parking. The Dixie Commissioners are still working with an
adjacent landowner in trying to acquire a 9-acre parcel which could
be used for parking.
The Taylor Commission asked if Dixie Commissioners would
support their project through resolutions. Dixie Commissioners
agreed. Commissioner Lamb added that Dixie County has proven
time and time again that they support their neighbors in
Steinhatchee through Interlocal agreements for fire and emergency
services, etc.
Green gave his final comments stating that both Commissions
need to work together because the general public is latterly being
"locked out" because of development. He noted that it was not
going to be an easy task, "If it was easy, someone else would have
already done it," stated Ta\ lor Commissioner Clay Betha.
"CHILD ABUSE"
Continued from front page
The Prevention Task Force is1 part of the Child Abuse
Prevention Project (CAPP), located at the University of Florida,
College of Medicine which has served 16 of North Florida's
counties since 1983. The goal of CAPP;is to help families nurture
their children, physically, intellectually, and emotionally. In order
to :succeed with their goal CAPP has set up two programs; a
Nurturing Program which provides in-home parent education and
the Pre\ention Task Force who's primary goal is to prevent child
abuse and neglect, working with the community, sharing resources
and information, increase public awareness, education and training
and develop needed programs and recourses for families.
Prevention Task Force members include parents, educators,
child advocates, interested citizens, social service providers,
clhrches and local government.
"'Karen Wolf District 3 Prevention Task Force Coordinator,
stated that she was overwhelmed with the response that they have
hid from the County Commissioners, City Council, and local law
enforcement in helping to support the "Winds of Change" project.
A special "thank you" is extended to the Dixie County Rotary Club
for'purchasing the pinwheels.
On Thursday, April 6th a group of officials and volunteers met
at the courthouse and placed a pinwheel on the lawn for every
child that was reportedly abused last year. When you drive by, you
will see that there are far too many pinwheels, 207! We as a
community must take action and help our children; after all they
ate our future.

you can get help, log onto http://capp.peds.ufl.edu or call (352)

Commissioners Get Update

On Gasification Plant.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
At the April 6th County Commission meeting, Commissioners
and public were given an update on the gasification plant that is
being developed by Dixie Waste Services LLC (DWS).
The proposed 150 ton per day plant is currently at the state
permitting level. Representative from Dixie Waste Services and
the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) were
on hand to answer any questions that the Commissioners or public
had as it was the first of two public hearings that is required by the
FDEP for permitting.
Several Commissioners asked about the air emissions and how
the county can be informed of testing results. The plant will have a
system that continuously reads air emissions. A log of those
readings are sent to the FDEP who in turn will be sending the
county a notice of any recorded levels that are not in compliance.
Commissioner Lamb noted that a plant similar to the one to be
built in Dixie County has been in operation in the state of Alaska
and been very successful. "We all know how tough it is to get
permitting for anything in Alaska, "so I'm sure that Dixie's
gasification plant will meet Florida's standards," stated
Commissioner Lamb.
The proposed plant's Air Emissions Plans can be viewed at the
Dixie County Public Library. In May the library will display the
Site Plans for the gasification plant which will be built on property
located behind the Dixie County Transfer Station.
The next hearing will be held in 30 days at the May 4th
Commission Meeting. The plant is scheduled to receive its final air
construction permit on July 31, 2006.
According to DWS the project will not only provide local jobs
during its construction but it will also present job/career
opportunities for the local labor force. Once in operation, the plant
will save costs for disposal of waste and will be much better for the
environment.

Abundant Life
& Living
By Lucille Stockton
Wisdom is the principle thing;
therefore get wisdom and with all of
thy getting get and understanding.
Proverbs 4:7 (kjv) It matters not how
many church services we attend, or
how many sermons are preached; it is
imperative that we get an
understanding. The Holy Spirit can only deal with us on our divine
spiritual level. The human family must be able to hold fast to the
instructions given to us lest we forget. Most times when we forget "i's
simply because we didn't understand them. If any lack wisdom let he/she
ask God who has a bountiful supply and He is no respecter of persons.
The Holy Spirit is ready and waiting to issue it out to anyone that task,-'
sincerely for it.
Love wisdom and she will crown, promote and bring thee honor, the
years of thy life shall be many. Wisdom seeks understanding, a person can
be wise enough to know he/she loves organ and piano music, but doesn't.
understand how to play one note on them. However, wisdom in he/she'
seeks to get an understanding of how to play both and get the right tune by:,,
combining the right notes for a right tune. With all thy getting get ain"
understanding.
"Love Life and Live It."

The Word

Made Flesh.
God's Sabbath
"' Continued from last week. I,
7,the son of man, say read Ezekiel
.22:26. "'Her priests have violated
ymy law, and have profaned mine
holyy things: they have put no
difference between the holy and
-4prpfane, neither have they showed
difference between the unclean
arid the clean, and have hid their
'eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am
profaned among them."
1" 'What a charge is laid against
these priests, and if this is true
iduting 'the days of Israel as a
nation that the priests hid their
;eyes from the Sabbath, how much
more so concerning the religious
leaders of our world today.
-I, the son of man, say the
Babylonish, heathen day set aside
to worship the sun god called
Sunday, and which Constantine
blended with "Israel's Sabbath", is
gross profaning of the Sabbath
which God gave unto Israel. Then
our religious leaders, trying to
keep peace, forming their
compromises, and blinding the
people, sought for ways to explain
the. whole situation and gendered
the lie that Christ arose on a
Sunday morning, and, now they
.i usl obser e Sunday in honor of
.Hi-, resurrection.
*'-But now examine the Word
"iseilf. In the end of the Sabbath, as
1 .began to dawn toward the first
"-da\ of the week, came Mary to
*;ee the sepulcher. (Matthew 28:1)
Israel Sabbath always was
Sreckoned from sundown to
,updow n. the scriptures are very
cleir on this point. Jesus was
playeded in the tomb between the
ninth hour of the day (3 p.m.) and
.sunset. And when the evening
.~cabme (Matthew 27:57), Joseph of
Arimahea went to Pilate and
Begged for the body of Jesus, and
took the body and wrapped it in a
clean linen cloth and placed it in
.the iomnb '
STo fulfill prophecy, He must
Srenain in the tomb for three days
'and three nights. The lie given to
,people today however, places Him
in the tomb on Friday afternoon,
and 36 hours later, on Sunday
morning, brings Him out again.
' I, the son of man, say reading
in Leviticus 23 we find that the
Passover Sabbath day was on the
,fourteenth day of the month, on
the fifteenth day was the feast of
unlea' ened bread, also a cessation
;of natural work revealing that
'the; operation from Calvary
"through the resurrection was to
birh us a perfect rest, body, soul,
3and spirit. And as it began to dawn
t4Greek. to draw near) toward the
first day of the week, about
sundown on the final Sabbath day,
when they came to the tomb, Jesus
,was risen.
I, the son of man, say how
.strange the religious leaders have
'hidden their eyes from the
Sjbbatih, and how Jesus actually
arose ai the end of the Sabbath just
before sundown three days after
,he was buried in the tomb.
The crucifixion took place on
:a Wednesday afternoon the burial
'just before sundown Wednesday.
Jesus' body was in the tomb


Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
nights three nights and three
days.

iBehold The Tabernacle of God
The Day of the Lord (The Sons of God) are not men seeking after God, but is
";the incarnation of God manifested in human flesh seeking after lost man.
As God was in Jesus Christ, He is coming again in His true body (The Son's of
"God). As Jesus Christ challenged the death structure which has existed from Adam;
also now the Son's of God are challenging this death structure.
; Jesus Christ said He was the way the truth and the life. The Sons of God do not
want to be the way, the truth, or life. They are a new species, which have been born
from (Out of) the way, the truth and the life; out of the world of life and death, out
of the world of knowledge, visions, and revelations.
i The Sons of God (The Day of the Lord) are the fulfillment of the way the truth
i and the life. Jesus Christ was the way the truth and the life (The Seed). The Sons of
God are the harvest.
S. The Sons of God believes you should not talk about knowledge and revelation
Only, but rather become the fulfillment of the revelation. Just talking about your
vision and revelation is not enough, but you must become it.
S: The doctrines of religion and beliefs have lived for thousands of years, while
our beautiful bodies have died. The Sons of God are challenging this death structure
which permits doctrines of religious and beliefs to live while our bodies perish.
1 My true self is not a spirit; my true self is me (My body). Without my body I
cbuld not exist or have my being. My body is the pearl and it is priceless. My body
is the greatest treasure that exists.
SThe way hew e truth and the life is not greater than being, for you could have all
knowledge of all the truth of the purpose of God and not become it. You would be
np good in the army of God. This is a time of becoming and not only getting
knowledge. Truth is for men who need knowledge, for they are in error.
The Day of the Lord (God's Army) does not behold you as a spirit, they are
beholding you. They cannot accept the vibrations of your spirit it without accepting
you. A spirit without a body is dead. Some people say the spirit is greater than the
body and a body without a spirit is dead. This was true when man functioned under
the age of angels or spirits, but today it is not enough. The spirit needs a body.
S; Psalms 102:16 When the Lord shall build up, Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
The word build up is a Hebrew word Banah and it means, set up, be built, have


children.
When the Zion company (The Day of the Lord) is built up and has children of
true understanding, the Lord will have appeared in His glory (man).
: Rev. 14:1 And I flooded, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount si-on, and with
h im a hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their
foreheads. This mount Sion is not a mount naturely, but is God's people of truth,
and He is in them, for they are His glory, and He appeared in them.
He is appearing in Zion bringing a company of Himself (Myriads of Himself).
Rev. 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rula all the nations
with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. This
man Child (The Day of the Lord) will not be a little baby as Jesus was at birth, but
Sis a many member body, a company of Himself.
This company of sons have left out of Egypt and have no struggles with the
Egyptians, (man made church). Those that tried to overtake them have been
swallowed up by the Red Sea.
The Sons of God have come to the truth and now understand that the greatest
giant of all in the promise land is the giant called the spiritual world.
This has been a mystery that is being done away with, and they walk through
bis mystery being not afraid, because they see now, that this giant did not exist, but
only in the imagination of their mind.
The Sons of God see that the promise land is no more than their physical body.
The land that they heard of that heard of that was as a far away strand is nor
other than their body of flesh.
To be continued.


Faith Baptist Church News
What a wonderful week in the Lord. Our Easter Brothers
Concert on Friday night was a huge success, being both Spiritual
and enjoyable. If you missed this concert, you truly missed a
blessing. They're usually here about once a year, so if you didn't
catch this one, perhaps we can plan on you next year.
We will have our regular Easter services this coming Sunday
morning followed by lunch in the fellowship hall. Bring your
favorite covered dish. After lunch, there will be an Easter Egg
Hunt for the young and young at heart.
Monday night the 17th following Easter, our spring revival will
begin with Brother Bill Jenkins as the evangelist. Come out and
hear Brother Bill. He will truly touch your heart.
Thursday night our Baptist women will meet at Sister Alice
Bryan's home. We always have a good time at these meetings and
learn a lot.
Remember our mid-week fill-up on Wednesday night and
Sunday school on Sunday morning. We have some wonderful
classes and we're sure you will enjoy them. Invite a friend to
Sunday school and church with you and especially to the revival.
You must know someone who doesn't attend church and this might
be the opportunity they've been waiting for to be saved. God will
bless you for it.
Don't forget to pray for the sick, the lost and the unconcerned
this week. We'll be looking for you Wednesday night and again on
,Sunday. May God bless you richly this week and keep you safe,
happy and healthy. We'll see you in church.


New Prospect Baptist News
Sunday...what a beautiful day to be in the house of the Lord!
Our choir was once again superb, and a couple of special songs by
Bros. Jody Mayo and Danny Riels were most heart-warming. Bro.
Billy brought soul-stirring messages in both services, continuing to
hone his oratory skills with each of God's messages.
On Sunday, April 16th, we will have our annual Easter Dinner
and Egg Hunt immediately after the morning service. Upcoming
events include a Men's Rally on May 5th, and our annual NPBC
Homecoming on May 7th. More events and activities loom on the
horizon, so keep watching!
Please remember the continuing need for prayer by those on all
the area church prayer lists, as well as our President and other
leaders, and our people in the military services. We invite you to
come out and worship with us at New Prospect anytime; in fact,
we'd love to have you with us! Have a good week, and may God
bless you.

Easter At The Chapel
Good Friday 'services will be held at noon on Good Friday
April 14th, at McCall's Chapel U.M.C. The service is, as usual, an
abbreviated service lasting about an hour. Again this year the
service will be in the mold of a Tenebrae in which candles are used
to illustrate going from light unto darkness.
Easter morning starts with a Sunrise Service at 7:00 a.m.,
which includes Holy Communion. After the service snacks will be
served in the fellowship hall.
There will be no Sunday school that morning therefore the next
service, will be at 11:00 a.m., and will include our choir, and
congregational singing, and a message from our Pastor Fred M.
Taylor.
We look forward to seeing everyone in our large neighborhood,
and especially those who are recent additions to our quad-county
area. We are located on highway 349 one mile north of the Dixie -
Lafayette county lines. Or ten mile south of Branford on 349, and
about 10 miles north and west of Bell.
Someday you are planning to get back in church. What better
lime to start than during Easter time. And-for you' new comers
looking for a church home, stop in tlis Easter and see that the Lord
is good.
Questions, or directions, call Pastor Taylor 386-935-0595.

Wildfire Awareness Week
April 9th through the 14th 2006 is Wildfire Awareness
Week. The Governor and his Cabinet designated the second week
"6f April in 1999, and the same week each succeeding year, as
'Wildfire Awareness Week. This designation was made in
recognition of Florida's devastating 1998 wildfire season where
ovef half a million acres burned and 337 homes and other
structures were damaged or destroyed by wildfires statewide.
The, 2006 spring wildfire season forecast calls for higher
-than average temperatures and below average rainfall which could
-result in a severe wildfire outbreak in Florida in late April through
,early May. if drying trends continue. Since January 1st 2006
Florida has experienced 1,636 wildfires burning 22,079 acres. In
'th&b Gainesville area firefighters have responded to 197 wildfires
burning 800 acres.
This week of recognition coincides with the most active part
-of Florida's 12-month wildfire season, March through June, and
is the perfect opportunity for residents prepare for wildfires in
their community. Homeowners should create a minimum of 30
feet of Defensible Space around the perimeter of their home. A
-Defensible Space can prevent flames from reaching your home
while providing firefighters a safer place to work.
-:" Remove flammable debris such as pine straw and dead
le'. es off of the roof and out of gutters.
Prune tree limbs at least 10 feet off the ground.
Remove flammable shrubs within 30 feet of your house.
, Mow tall grasses and rake leaves and pine straw around
your home (Make sure your mower is in good repair and does not
start a fire).
Enclose open spaces under homes or decks to prevent
flammable debris from accumulating.
Use fire resistant plants with a higher moisture content
'and cthunky mulch or stone in your landscape.
Store firewood and flammable materials like gasoline in a
'safe'location away from your home.
Follow your local burning laws and obey burn bans.
For more information on how to protect your home from
wildfires visit the Firewise website at

Closed Since

2001
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation (FWC)
Commissioners approved a
proposal today to re-establish
hunting access to the south
portion of Camp Blanding.
The area will open for the
2006-07 hunting season.
Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center and FWC
staffs developed the proposal
to open access to the portion of
the post closed since Sept. 11,
2001. These lands, needed for
training exercises and troop
mobilization, were under tight
security, prohibiting
recreational access.
Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center is vital in'
training support for military
services and other
governmental agencies and
responding to state
emergencies. Recent Base
Realignment and Closure
Committee decisions make the
center more appealing for
training because of increased
competition for ranges and
maneuver areas from other
installations.
Maj. Gen. Doug Burnett,
Florida National Guard
adjutant general, and Col.
Benny Nelson, the center's
commander, remain committed
in their support of Floridians
while fulfilling federal and
state military missions.
"The Florida National
Guard, to include Camp
Blanding Joint Training
Center, is a community-based
organization," Nelson said.
"Support of this proposal
reflects our intent to support
and assist our citizens while
maintaining a focus on
satisfying the requirements
associated with our military
mission."
Camp Blanding, remains
on heightened force protection
which makes it unacceptable
for the public and their
equipment including dogs to
encroach on sensitive areas,
such as the 'artillery impact
area and cantonment area.
"For this reason, Camp
Blanding and FWC staffs
decided it was necessary to
relocate the deer-dog hunting
area from its previous location
in order to reopen the 'south
post," said Roland Garcia,
director of FWC's North
Central Region, based in Lake
City.


Saltwater Fisheries Bill C
HB 1345, Saltwater Fisheries, by Rep.
Ken Littlefield (R) Zephyrhills is basically an
agency bill.' Rep. Littlefield was approached
with the idea to allow the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission to more stringently
regulate the taking of blue crabs.
The legislation would create new
endorsement fees for blue crabs, new
endorsement fees for the trap retrieval program
and require an annual fee of $0.50 for each
blue crab trap tag. In addition, FWC would be
allowed to establish by rule an amount of
equitable rent that may be recovered from trap
owners to the State for the enhanced access to
it natural resources. It would require that all
the funds from fees, penalties and equitable
rent relating to the blue crab program be
deposited in the Marine Resources
Conservation Trust Fund and provides
penalties for untagged traps.
Prior to being heard in the Agriculture and
Environment Appropriations Committee on
Tuesday, an amendment was filed by Rep.
Littlefield that stated the FWC may waive fees
for the first year. Rep. Will Kendrick (D)
Carrabelle made a proposal in the form of an
amendment that directed the FWC to waive
fees for the first year. The amendment
introduced by Rep. Kendrick was passed and
adopted. Although Kendrick's amendment was
adopted, he still expressed concerns with the


Camp Blanding from a
security perspective and
reopens the south post. We
strongly believe this change is
in the best interest of all
concerned parties, especially
the hunting community,"
Garcia said.
One change was prompted
by comments received at the
open house.
"The deer-dog hunting
area will not carry the 'three-
point' rule that exists on the
wildlife management area,"
Garcia said. "Deer-dog hunters
will be able to harvest deer
with at least one antler five
inches or more in length."
Changes to the Camp
Blanding Wildlife
Management Area effective
July 1 include;
Moves deer-dog hunting
north of state Route 16.
Establishes two nine-day
quota hunts for deer-dog
hunting on the north post.
Moves still hunting
opporrunines south of state
Route 16, including archery
and muzzleloading gun quota


.atches Kendrick's Attention
In 1998, voters of the State passed a
constitutional amendment to merge the Marine
Fisheries Commission and the Game &
Freshwater Fish Commission. At that time, the
constitutional amendment required the agency
to adopt by rule due process standards. Upon
pressure by Kendrick in last year's Session, the
agency asserted that this had been done.

The agency is now in the process of
drafting a rule that guarantees due process as it
relates to dealing with the Commission.
In committee on Tuesday Rep. Kendrick
said, "Realizing that there is industry support
for this bill, I still oppose because it is unfair
for the Legislature to consider or pass any
legislation which creates, increases, or,
otherwise modified s sand penalties until we
can assure citizens of this State that their
constitutional rights are going to be protected
by this Commission."

Kendrick continued, "Furthermore, Mr.
Chairman, it is neither in the people's best
interest nor in industry's best interest to'
entertain this legislation until these assurances
are guaranteed."
The agency reported that they should have
rules promulgated and adopted by midsummer,
If passed by the Legislature, this bill would be
effective July 1 st of this year.

a Antioxidant-Rich Blueberries Are Available

n From March Through June -
on If you're eating plenty of blueberries, you can bet your bod, isn't singing the blues Those sweet, tang 'mitek
berries are packed with antioxidants to neutralize free radicals-un-iable o\',,gen molecules associated %%iih
cancer, heart disease, and the effects of aging. .,
* "Blueberries' are one of the most healthful foods you can eat," said Donna Miller, Vice President of the Florida
Blueberry-Growers Association. "Per cup, they are the highest antioxidant fruit or vegetable available. The\ are
fat and sodium free and are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C."
iStudies show that eating blueberries can improve eye health, lower cholesterol, protect against urinary tract
infections, and reduce the risk of certain cancers. In addition, researchers have found that a diet rich in blueberrIes
may help stop age-related memory loss. Blueberries get their memory-enhancing punch from anthocyanifig,
reddish-blue pigments; these powerful antioxidants are thought to increase communication between aging 1irain
cells. ;
"The word is out about the health benefits of blueberries, and growers are seeing increased demand for' their
product," said Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles H. Bronson. "It's no wonder these perennial faI. oites
are only growing in popularity. They're bursting with nutrients; plus, they're delicious,. satisfying, and so low in.
calories that even dieters can enjoy them." .
The Florida blueberry season starts in mid to late March and ends in June. Most of the state's commercial
blueberry acreage can be found i.n Bay, Hamilton, Suwannee, Columbia, Alachua, Marion, Lake, Polk,
Hillsborough, and Highlands counties. In 2004, Florida's cash receipts for blueberries totaled over $25 milliol1.-''-
According to the Uni'. ersity of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, there are two main types
^ ofblueberries grown in Florida-southern highbu.sh and rabbite,,'e Southerrn highbush blueberries are earl' -seasohi
S blueberries, ripening, on average, about four to six weeks before rabbne,,es gro'.'n in the same location Southern
S hiihbus i blueberries in central and south-central Florida ripen as early as mid March, long before blueberries
grown any place else in the United States. In the spring, the only fresh blueberries are Florida blueberries, so iheq,
fetch high prices and enjoy nationwide demand.
S Florida's southern highbush blueberries are shipped fresh to supermarkets around the country. Because
Florida's rabbite. e blueberries ripen later, when there is competition from other states, their market is usually
W limited to u-pick and local sales. Rabbiteye cultivarsare well adapted from Ocala north to the Georgia border and
.* west throughout the Panhandle.
Florida's U-pick blueberry farms will soon be opening their gates to the public. Wear sunscreen and a hat, dfess
comfortably, and bring your own container. Stay on designated paths and try not to step on the root mounds,
which could injure the plants. Choose plump, evenly blue berries, and be gentle when you pick. Try to getyohr
picked blueberries out of the sun as soon as possible and into a cool; shady place.
If you're shopping for blueberries at the supermarket, Miller offers these tips: "When you're selecting
blueberries, make sure they have their natural white, powdery bloom. It's a natural food starch and protects the
berry. Some people think it's a spray and try.to wash it off, but it's a good thing and helps the blueberry,stay
fresher longer."
Blueberries don't ripen once they've been harvested, so make sure the berries you choose are deep blue-gray
without any hint of red. Shake the container gently to check that the berries move freely; if they don't, they might
be mushy or moldy.
"Make sure the berries are dry," Miller said, "and that they look so good you can hardly wait to have one. You
can really tell if the berries have aged. They shouldn't be wrinkled or shriveled."
Ripe blueberries should be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, where they will keep for up to a
week. Before refrigerating, sort through the berries and remove any that are moldy or damaged. Berries shouldn't
be washed until just prior to use.
Blueberries are a health food that is also a convenience food. They don't require peeling or coring, and they're

Politically Correct
Let me ask you a question. Have you had enough of political'
correctness? I know that a lot of folks are starting to believe w'
are going overboard with this PC business. Maybe. But it do's'
seem to be permeating nearly every part of our society.
Television, of course, started the trend, at least on a national
scale. Then newspapers followed. And now, even most of the:
textbooks our kids use in school are being rewritten to be PC.
Some of .that, I guess, is good. But what I saw the other day on a
bookstore shelf took the cake. It was a politically correct Bible!
Yeah, I'm not kidding. A PC Bible. But wait. There's more!
It's not the first one. Nope! Believe it or not, a few years back,
another guy was equally upset with the way the Bible was not in
line with the thinking, morals, language and values of the day, andl
decided that the Bible needed to be PC. So he set about the task of
doing just that.
He said that many of the words were offensive, especially for
women, and that the book created reluctance for young people to
read and study it. He further believed that many of the scriptures
contained explicit sexual language and often told of illicit deeds
between family members. He was appalled, and decided that it
was time for a change.
So, his solution was to discard certain words, and even whole
episodes from the Bible and in some cases insert euphemisms,
words, and phrases that are not offensive to sensitive people.
That's what he said, and that's what he did.
Now, if you've ever read the Bible from cover to cover,
especially the King James Version, then you know it's not light
reading. It takes a while to get though that book, and discovering
the meaning of many of those passages can be a life's work, even
for a man like this, who was fluent in Greek, Latin and Hebrew.
He was quite a scholar actually. He spent nearly 60 years
annotating and editing his Bible. And to help ensure its success,
and acceptance, he even gave up all his royalties to the book.
When it did hit the store shelves, well, the public was not ready
for a PC Bible and it failed miserably. It was, in his own words,
"the greatest achievement and the biggest disappointment of my
life." Funny that we don't think it was his greatest achievement.
Because he had another. I don't know if we are ready for the new
PC Bible I saw the other day in the store, but I doubt it. I do know
that when the first one was printed, the public wasn't ready then.-
either.
But It's a Little Known Fact that a man did spend much of his
life writing one one that none of us remember. But lucky for us
he decided to write another book, one we do remember and use
every day. I know I do. So thanks for the first book, Mr. Daniel
Webster. Your dictionary is a huge hit, and has been for 200 years.
But that PC Bible, well, I don't know if we are ready for that even
yet!

Suwannee River Cruisers
Celebrates 10 Years April 2006
'Suwannee River Cruisers, a social boat club, celebrates 10
years April 2006.
,The happy red-haired Becky Sanford started gathering the
present 225 members from the Old To% n and Fanning Springs area
in 1998. Today there is a cap on the number of members as there
aren't that many places where we can meet in the event the river is
tob high to boat on.
The only requirement was to love the Suwannee River and
-, ant to be on it, even if one didn't own a watercraft. The members
look forward to receiving Becky's cheerful letters each month
announcing %\hen and where the next gathering will be held; what
the main menu will be and to "bring something to go with".
Over the years the group have performed many charitable acts
for.persons within the community, among-them building covered
benches along the Nature Coast Trail ways and Trails even though
the Cruisers on the river only pass under the trail when they are
meeting on the river. One weekend a year they pick up discarded
trash left by other boaters and give a prize to the member who
collects the most, and another prize for the most unusual treasure
found. All Cruisers crafts are checked before they embark.
Throughout all the activities that the Cruisers engage in, it is
always in good fun, including the Rubber Ducky Race during
Fanning Springs Festival of Lights, which is a fundraiser.
Becky and her husband continue to live on the Suwannee in
Old Town. They are friends to many.

Dixie Defenders To

Host Confederate

History Month Dinner
On April 22nd the Dixie Defenders will host a Confederate
History Month Dinner at the Holy Cross Catholic Church Hall
located on US 19, south of Cross City. On April 7th Dixie
Defenders Commander Joe Sparacino, accepted a Proclamation by
the Board of County Commission which recognizes April as
Confederate History Month and helps us remember the War
Between the States and those who fought in the civil war.
The proclamation read as follows:
WHEREAS, the month of April is the time during which the
Confederate States of America initiated and ended its four-year struggle
for a Sovereign and Independent Nation; and
WHEREAS, in proportion to its population, the State of Florida lent
more soldiers and sailors to the Confederate cause than did any other
Southern state; and
WHEREAS, all Floridians should be knowledgeable of the History
of the War Between the States and the Battles fought in the State of
Florida, including the Battles of Natural Bridge, Olustee and Santa
Rosa Island; and
WHEREAS, April 26 has been designated by the laws of Florida as
a legal holiday, a time which to honor the memories of those who
sacrificed their lives in the War Between the States; and
WHEREAS, as we recall the tragic events that took place between
the years 1861 and 1865, we do so in an attempt to gain a better
understanding of the conflicting ideals and passions that pitted brother
against brother and tore a nation apart.
NOW THEREFORE, be it respectfully proclaimed that the residents
of Dixie County, Florida be urged to observe the month of April 2006, as
Florida Confederate History Month and, in solemnly contemplating the
events of that time, resolve to foster a climate in which all Americans
live and work together in harmony in "one nation under God."
The dinner will not only be a time for fellowship, but a portion
of the proceeds will go towards a monument project of the John
Hance Osteen Camp #770 in Trenton.
A get acquainted hour will start at 3pm and a Southern Dinner
will begin at 4pm. Tickets are only $7.00 each and because of
limited seating, payment will need to be in advance. Please make
check payable to: Dixie Defenders #2086, PO Box 2452, Cross
City, FL 32628. For more information you may contact the
Commander at 498-3903.
A raffle of a Robert E. Lee print will be held along with other
door prizes.
Uniforms and other period dress is encouraged.
Please join us for what promises to be an enjoyable time.
DIXIE IS ALIVE & WELL! DED VINDICE!

up trash yesterday and again this
morning because a lot of trash had
been put on the ground during the
night.
The Board discussed closing the
park at 10:00 PM

for the Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern Agreement.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,

asking if he could expedite getting the
minutes into the newspaper.
Clerk Reed stated that the minutes
have to be approved by the Board at
the next regular meeting before they
can be published. The county pays a
reduced rate for the minutes to be
published. Due to the space required
the newspaper publishes it when they
can. Also, it is not a mandatory
requirement that they be published; it
is a service provided by this Board.
Arthur Bellot inquired about
putting them on the county website.
This will be looked into.
Commissioner Hays stated that he
would like to mention that Dixie
County has lost a lifetime resident,
Bertie Valentine 99 years old this past
week. We want to take a few moments
to remember her family and the family
ofJudson Walker in prayer.
A few moments of silence was
taken.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
would like the Board to sponsor a
Little League Ball Team. This is paid
out of pocket personally by the Board
and not out of county funds.
The Board purchased Clare
Currie's pig at the Livestock Fair. She
is the daughter of Chuck Currie. This
was paid out of pocket personally by
the Board and not out of county funds.

water to DTRAC. All the county
would have to pay is a monthly fee; the


meter would be put in for free.
Board agreed to proceed with this.
Commissioner Driggers stated he
has been informed that the Supervisor
of Elections office is hot and unable to
control the temperature.
Arthur Bellot stated this has been
fixed. The belt was broken and the
thermostat is in a different office.

an apology.

Jack Spivey an apology.

need to always remember that.

care of the people and if the Board will
have him back he will be returning to
his position as Chief of Emergency
Services.
All Board agreed for him to return

that Chad is needed in the Emergency

You May Qualify

For Extra Help
With New

-Medicare
Prescription
Drug Program
Costs
By Clif Copeland
Social Security
JPublic Affairs Specialist
By now, nearly' all
Americansi who may be
.eligible for the new Medicare
Prescription Drug program
probably know at least
something about this historic,
cost-saving program. But have
you also heard about the extra
help that could bring you big
savings on your monthly
premiums, annual deductibles
*and prescription co-payments?
That extra help could be worth
an average of $2,100 per year
for those who qualify.
You could qualify for the
extra help if you have limited
income (below $14,700 for an
individual or $19,800 for a
married couple) and resources
(below $11,500 for an
individual or $23,000 for a
married couple). To learn
more or to apply now, visit
Social Security online at
www.socialsecurity.gov/prescr
iptionhelp or call Social
Security toll-free at 1-800-772-
1213. If you have a hearing
,.impairment, call 1-800-325-
0778.


After you apply, Social
Security will review your
application and let you know if
you qualify for the extra help.
If you qualify, you will need to
enroll in a Medicare-approved .
prescription drug plan to get
help with your prescription
costs.
If you have been putting
off making a decision about
applying for the prescription
drug program, I would
encourage you to act as soon
as possible because the
deadline for initial enrollment
in the Medicare Prescription
Drug program ends on May
15, 2006.
You should act now.
Enroll in the Medicare


Prescription Drug program
and, if you qualify, the extra
help that may save you
additional money on premium
payments and plan co-
payments.

Springhouse Quilter's News


The beginner classes have all
been completed for the 2006 ., :.
new quilt members joining ''
Springhouse Quilters. These .
classes were held each week i '!
during March and April for the -
day and night group and '
included 6 sample quilt blocks .
and a feathered heart quilted
pillow top. Each block taught
a different concept of quilting .
and builds the foundation that
most quilters will need to N
become experienced quilters.
There were approximately
25 ladies taking the classes this
year. All of the ladies are now
working on assembling their
blocks into a sampler quilt.
All of the ladies will be very excited when they are able to present their completed sampler for a
show and tell at a regular meeting of Springhduse.
Another item that new members of Springhouse learn during the beginning classes is to
make one of the distinctive nametags that are worn by Springhouse Quilters. The picture above
shows the nametag being worn by the night members. Any member that fails to wear their
nametag during the regular meetings is fined; the fine being the requirement that a quilt block
called a "penalty block" must be made for the offense. It is always interesting to see who forgot
to bring their nametag. The penalty blocks are eventually made into a quilt.
Springhouse quilters were again saddened last week at the loss of one of their newest
members, Carol Stanley. Ms. Carol joined Springhouse for the first time in January of this year.
She attended the nite owls' meetings and was very helpful sharing her knowledge of quilting.
Ms. Carol was a very special person to all who met her. It did not take long after you met Ms.
Carol, before you knew she had already learned almost everything there was to know about
quilting. If she did not know an answer to a quilting question, she would immediately hunt for
an answer.
Ms. Carol taught the beginning classes for the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop. She lived in
Alachua County and would make the daily trip to Trenton and each Tuesday, at the end of the
day, she would attend the nite owl meetings. Then, all alone, she would make her trip home.
She would be back in Trenton on Wednesday morning before the shop opened at 10:00 AM.
Probably the reason Ms. Carol was such a great quilt teacher was because she was a retired
schoolteacher. Ms. Carol was a member of at least two other quilting groups.
Ms. Carol was a member of the United Church of Gainesville where she was very active in
working with the homeless. She often stayed all night at her church preparing and serving the
needs of the homeless. Ms. Carol may have been small in size but the knowledge she shared
made her a very special and great person.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, please contact Anna Gilliam, 463 7922 or Lois
Scott, 463 2207.

How To Choose A Metal Roof
(NAPS)-Cracked and
curling shingles, dark stains
and peeling interior ceilings
are all signs that it might be
time to replace your roof.
While there are many
choices in roofing materials,
an increasing number of
homeowners are opting for
the stability of metal roofs.


o ... ..--- ,
Metal roofs offer superior
resistance to extreme
weather such as hurricanes
and heavy snow loads.
To find out if a metal roof
is right for you, first consider
the environment. You'll need
a material that will stand up
to whatever nature throws
at it. A durable metal roof is
an investment-grade solu-
tion. Metal roofs withstand
the test of time-offering 30-
to 50-year warranties-and
a variety of styles and colors
make them suitable for
many styles of architecture.
To choose a metal roofing
system for your home, the
Metal Roofing Alliance sug-
gests finding a trained con-
tractor. Ask for referrals and
written estimates. Make
sure your contractor uses
products manufactured by
MRA members.
For more information,
visit www.metalroofing.com.


Did You Know?
(NAPS)-If you're one of
those people to whom lunch
hour means 30 minutes or
less, you're not alone. A recent
study showed that 55 percent
ofAmericans are consuming
this meal in 30 minutes or
less, with 35 percent eating
lunch at their desk. That may
be why the news of Healthy
Choice Soup Microwaveable
Bowls is "bowling" over so
many people.
The experts at Diversified
Investment Advisors caution
that there are no guarantees,
but suggest that exposure to
a moderate mix of stocks,
bonds and cash would make
sense for most long-term
investors. To learn more, visit
the Web site at www.divin
vest.com.
The federal government
estimates that it has reduced
the energy intensity (energy
per square foot) of its build-
ings by almost 26 percent
since 1985. To learn more,
visit www.eere.energy.gov/
femp.
A new exhibit of papal por-
traits from the last five cen-
turies, Papi in Posa: 500 Years
of Papal Portraiture, is on
display at the Pope John Paul
II Cultural Center through
March 30, 2006. For infor-
mation, call 202-635-5400 or
visit www.jp2cc.org.
Whether you're adding a
second dishwasher to your
kitchen or upgrading the
shower or bath, remember
this: when you update appli-
ances that use hot water, the
demand for hot water in your
honre will likely increase. In
order to meet changing life-
style demands, a 'compre-
hensive selection of A. 0.
Smith Water Heaters is avail-
able from professional con-
tractors nationwide. To learn

Even with all the attention
drawn to Social Security over
the past year, 69 percent of
retirees are just not convinced
the current system is in trou-
ble. For more information,

Diabetes Self-Management Class

In Cross City


The Dixie County Health Department is partnering with
Suwannee River Area Health Education Center (AHEC) to
provide a series of classes on diabetes self-management. Diabetes
Self-Management Training: The Key to A Healthy Life With
Diabetes will be a four part series aimed at teaching self-care
skills to adults that have been diagnosed with diabetes. Each
session will be two hours and length and will cover a variety of
topics including:

Overview of Diabetes
Managing Blood Sugar
Nutrition and Meal Planning
Medications
Exercise
Foot, Skin & Dental Care


The class will be taught by a nurse practitioner whoQ
specializes in diabetes education. We feel that this is so valuable'
because participants will be getting expert instruction on such ',6i
important issue. As a part of the class, participants will receive
blood sugar, cholesterol and A1C testing. There will also. be:
opportunities to win great prizes. Classes will be held on
Tuesday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm beginning April 18 through
May 9.
This series of classes will be free of charge. The class size
will be limited and preference will be given to older adults and
their caregivers. This is a great opportunity for people that have
been newly diagnosed or those previously diagnosed that have not
had self-management training.
If you have any questions regarding Diabetes Self--
Management Training, please contact the Dixie County Health",
Department at (352) 498-1360. If you or a loved on& has diabetes,*
, we can help!

Pictured from top to bottom: (top picture) Cutting the Ribbon at the newly renovated City Park
were City Council Members, City Officials, County Officials, Representatives from CRCCI and
local supporters. (middle picture) Playing around are Councilman Clay Locklear, Eddie Marsh,
City Clerk Angie Bush, Councilwoman Kay Harden, Councilman Herbert Hurst; sitting -
Councilman Marcellus Dawson and City Manger Mike Cassidy. (bottom left) Vessie Mille, Emma
Lou NesSmith and Dottie Stubbs show how it's done on the new exercise equipment. (bottom
righi) a long shot of the new walking/skating trail.
City Manger Mike Cassidy, wno took over when Poore retired, stated that the Council can not
thank all those involved enough for their help and support. The City was able to stretch grant dollars
by utilizing in-kind services through the city and county crews, as well as Cross City Correctional
Institute inmate labor. Cassidy stated that local contractors were also used in the project.
At the Open House many of those involved in the project were on hand to see the final results. A
group of 49 students from Anderson Elementary School's Accelerated Readers Program were
invited as special guest, taking some time out of the classroom and brought to the Open House. They
were more than willing to try out the new equipment and deemed the climbing wall as the new
favorite at the park.
':-Also on hand were several of our senior ladies showing us how to use the new exercise
equipment, Mrs. Vessie Mills, Dottie Stubbs, and Mrs. Emma Lou NesSmith; putting many of us to
shame. The exercise modules are for low-impact exercise and work both the upper and lower body.
i.Thanks ladies, you are an inspiration to us all!
Park hours are Monday-Sunday from 8:00am 10:00pm and open to everyone. The restrooms
are only open during special events. Anyone needing the park's facilities will need to contact City
-Hall directly and be added to the calendar, much like you would do if you needed to use a county
-oommunita center .
-- Take thetime time go by and check out the new and improved City Park. It is truly a place for all of
-Dixie Countians to be proud of!
