When Bobby Bischoff
walked into Cross City
Smoke & Spirit some months
ago, he had no idea what he
was about to start.
"The elephant was just sit-
ting on the counter, no tray
or anything, so I put my
change on the suction cups. I
said to Mr. Patel, 'Maybe I'll
start something.'"
Soon after, the change was
stacked high on the back of
the elephant. A tray was

BOARD OF THE COMMISSIONERS OF
DIXIE COUNTY


A good turn-out by the general public, of-
ficials and media. During the report by
Tony Johns, it became apparent that there
are no fire hydrants connected to the
Suwannee water plant, a situation that.is to
be remedied in the near future. What hap-
pened to them? They were included in the
original plans approved by the Commission,
but sometime between 2002 and 2003 they
disappeared due to lack of funding by Flori-
da Department of Environment Protection.
Once the hydrants are installed, residents
can look forward to a reduction in their
house insurance premiums.


The availability of $500,000 grant funds to
be used for Library improvements was
brought to the attention of the Board by
Rita Harris with the notion that the current library in Cross
City could be expanded into the adjacent vacant GenSpec
building.
Arthur Bellot, county manager, pointed out that the general

3d ANNUAL DR


MARTIN LUTHER



KING JUNIOR


PARADE


In honor of Martin Luther King Day the residents of Cross
City and surrounding areas gathered together towitneis a
wonderful parade, followed by music and speeches.
The parade began at the Dlxie County High School, winding
across Highway 119, past Cross City City Hall, and ultimately
ending up in front of the Dixie County Courthouse.'
In the square across from the Courthouse a barbeque was set
up to feed all those who came to honor Dr. King's memory
Many people came to celebrate the memory of Dr. Martin
Luther King. A podium was erected on the steps of the Court-
house and from there members of our community spoke
about the message Dr. King brought to us.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do
that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and
toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral
of destruction....The chain reaction of evil--hate beget-
ting hate, wars producing more wars--must be broken,
or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihila-
tion."
Those words were spoken at the ceremony, and they were
well chosen. Obviously Dr. King was on to something. If more
people abode by those words, the world would certainly be
bettered by it.

Behold the economy car
from India
India, having belatedly made it into the 20th century,
has now endeavored to make its mark on the 21st by producing a
car that sells for the cash American equivalent of a mere $2,500.
Before you take your SUV to a used car lot, bear in
mind that this little beauty won't be available to consumers in
this country for at least a couple qf'years, by which'time it
might have to undergo a few "upgrades," especially in Califor-
nia, before it'will be considered street legal.
Manufactured by Tata Motors, this innovation is so
stripped down that it makes a Model T Ford look like a luxury
car, especially when you consider its seating arrangements,
which accommodate only two not overly corpulent individuals.
(The Indian diet, being vegetarian in nature and not' excessive
in quantity, yields few calorically challenged specimens.)
Its two cylinder engine will propel this diminutive item
at a maximum speed of 65 mph, which would get you run over
by a large motorcycle on an interstate.highway,'though I don't
suppose they have interstate highways in India. And your sav-
ings, beyond the purchase price?
Well, it does get 50mpg. Hey, that's not bad. You have to
pay top buck for a car that will get that kind of mileage here in
the good ol' USA. Car dealers in this country brag about the
"economy" of a jalopy that will get you 35mpg. If you want
50mpg, better figure on paying through the nose for a "hybrid"
that you can plug in to your light bill when you park it, and
don't figure on getting it on the cheap. These days, economy can
be expensive in the transportation market.
Funny thing, it was not always thus. Way back about 20
years ago, I bought an economy car that havee driven about two
or three times around the odometer and, needless to say, it has
required some maintenance beyond an occasional,oil change in
the interim. However the only impediment to its lasting forever
seems to be the increasing scarcity of replacement parts.
I've been driving this little gas-miser for so long that I
don't even remember what I paid for it, but it sure couldn't have
been top buck, because I was basing the purchase more on a
modest sticker price than good gas mileage. I just lucked out
and got both.
n By that, I mean 50mpg. Highway, in town, 50mpg. AC
on? No problem, still 50mpg. I filled up once a week for five
bucks. The years have taken their toll, but she still gets 40mpg,
which is better than the "economy" cars that the salesman tells
you will get 35. Of course, I no longer fill up once a week for
five bucks. Not the car's fault, thought
My econochariot can comfortably seat two adults in the
front seats and another two less comfortably in the back, and
still have modest storage space aft of the back seat.
Oh yes; this paragon of four-wheeled economy is not
limited to 65mph. I've had it up to 85 (FHP note: I was on a race
track, not a public highway) and it still wasn't flat out. Other-
wise, competitive highway speeds do not abate its frugal con-
sumption of motor fuel.
T My question at this point is, why in hell can't Detroit,
Tokyo, New Delhi or any other auto manufacturing capital just
make a compact car that is economical in both purchase'price
and fuel economy without being a cartoon caricature from a
1940scomic strip? (You do remember "Smokey Stover," don't
you?)
Having fielded this question numerous times previous-
ly without getting a straight answer, I must conclude, that auto-
mobile manufacturers, at home and abroad, could do exactly
that if they wanted to, only for some reason, they don't want to.
If a good small car could get 50mpg 20 years ago, you should be
able to get that kind of mileage out of an SUV today and 70mpg
out of a compact. And if manufacturers wanted to be competi-
tive in the:area of gas mileage, this would already have hap-
pehed and we wouldn't have government bureaucrats setting
mileage criteria.


As of December 19, 2007 I1 have resigned my position as Coor-
dinated fort United Christian Services. I would like to thank
all those who supported me, giving me the opportunity to
serve our community and our lord over the last 3 1/2 years.
To those persons who are in need of services, please call
Martha Jane Osteen or William R. Boone at United Christian
Services 352-498-5702 as I will no longer be taking these calls.
Once again, thank you and God bless you.

STATE SONG
I find it apalling that our government has nothing better to
do than sit around and make changes to, things like our state
song. I am a 4th, yes 4th, generation Floridian. My Great
Grandmother was even in National Geographic in 1967 in an
article called "Florida Crackers", so I think that some woman
from England wanting to change our state song "Old Folks At
Home" is ridiculous. Maybe we should change the state bird
to "Donald Duck" and the state animal to "Mickey Mouse" be-
cause we already have a "Goofy" for state governor: If he
wanted to change the state song, it should at least have been
written by a true Floridian. Not a 12 year transplant. Our
state song has been in place for 73 years, so what makes it the
wrong song now? I've been told that Gov. Crist would not let
our state song be played at his installment ceremonies. You
call yourself a Floridian? HA! I've lived in Florida longer
than he has been alive!
If anybody else feels the same, please call:
Will Kendrick 850-488-7870 State Rep.
Charley Deen 866-538-2831 State Rep
or call your own State Rep.
Thank you for your help,

Dear Editor:
As I read the front page of the "Advocate" dated January 17,
2008, the next.thoughts came to me. Why does anyone want to
change, things?. Due to people wanting to change things, we
have to know several languages in order toworkfor some
state or federal entities. We can no longer give prayers in
public schools; prayers that are given in public have to be
non-demoninational, etc. What a change in the problems of
the country since the prayer was removed. Our country was
founded "Under God." The pilgrims thanked God for allowing
them to land on this continent. Who are we to take God out
of our Country's foundation?
Where are the fundamentals of our country headed? The
USA was founded by our forefathers, who left their countries
to find a land free of religious, fanatical, or military depres-
sion. Some of them started with not much more than the
clothes on their backs; yet, they made a new life for them-
selves and their families. America was haven to people who
spoke different languages, BUT learned English to have a
common denominator. Why can't the people seeking refuge
in our country, now-learn to speak and read English? they
should also say and mean the Pledge to the American Flag
with their hand over their heart. IF they can't do this then
they should go back to where they came from, or evidently,
wnat to be. After all, they entered OUR COUNTRY with the
request to become an American Citizen! To me, that means
to become one of us with our privileges, rights, laws, and op-
portunies.
Now someone wants to change our State's Song, just because
the Governor deleted it from his inaugural? That was his
chauce. This song is part of our history, and the words used
in it were of that time and era. To shove it on a shelf of his-
tory and leave it there is to lose a part of us.
No, I am not a Florida born citizen. But when I moved here,
I took pride in becoming a citizen of Dixie .County and Flori-
da. I like our County and State the way it is. Oh, there will
be changes, but I don't plan to make any, just enhance what
we have.
Sincerely,
Mary Kennedy.

As I was at the side line cheering on the young men of the
Cross City Devils semi-pro football team along with some
Cross City fans that tagged along to our game in Ocala, on
Monday, 21, 2008. I kept seeing all the talent that we have
and how it goes to waste if we as parents and concerned citi-
zens don't do anything about it. To all those who love to com-
plain about our young men and neighborhoods and how
someone needs to do something about it, well someone has
done something about it, me! I came up with a great idea to
keep them busy and trying to keep them off the streets and
corners and I sure thought I would get the support from our
local busineses, local churches and local football fans.
I know that everyone has a problem with the name Devils
but we all have a little bit of that inside each and every one of
us and it would be hipocritical and silly not to help the
young men of our community just because of a name. The
sport is football and we all love football and these guys. Once
upon a:time you cheered them on when they were in high
school some made it past high schools and into colleges ana
some didn't have that chafide to fulfill their dreams off'being
the next NFL player to come out of Cross City. On February
02, 2008 we kick off @ 6pm our 2008 season with our first
game here in Cross City and it would really be very thought-
full of our community to come out and support them as they
will be playing against some teams that have been around for
years. We are a new team but we have the heart and courage
to take on anyone, win or loose. We do it. People are very fast
to lock up and look down on our guys but very slow to do
something about it, so I ask of everyone to come on out and
support them and stop looking down on us.
Thank you,
Elaine Ortiz-Harden and the Cross City Devils.
Also, we are looking for: coaches and players as,well as vol-
unteers to help out on our home games @ gate and conces-

GROUP WANTS TO KICK
PREDATORS OFF OF
MYSPACE & FACEBOOK
Legislattur should consider measures
that are more comprehensive in
a mtgting convicted sex predators who
utilize social networking websites.
Tallahassee Today the
Coalition for Online Safety
announced that they would
be calling on parents and
concerned citizens to oppose
HB 411 as it is written in its
current form. Specifically,
the concern is that the pro-
posed bill is too lenient in
that it potentially singles out
some providers without ap-
plying similar standards to
all. It also does not clearly de-
fine required safety disclo-
sures.

"We are wholeheartedly dedi-
cated to ensuring the protec-
tion of all legitimate users of
the Internet," said Coalition
Chairman Carmen Salman.
"However, we believe the
most effective way to do this
is to ban all convicted sexual
offenders from accessing all
social networking Websites. If
we want to get serious about
our safety then we must start
focusing on common sense
solutions that provide real,
meaningful protection and
not just a false sense of secu-
rity."

The Coalition for Online
Safety is a not-for-profit cor-
poration. Its 2008 agenda will
include policy development,
building a network of con-
cerned consumers and Inter-
net vendors, and advocating
for measures to increase safe-
ty and security
NOTICE
The Dixie Soil and Water
Conservation District Board

uled monthly meeting on

DIXIE COUNTY
DEPUTIES ON THE
LOOKOUT FOR
BANK MONEY

Law enforcement officials
were issued a lookout for a
vehicle driven by a man who

afternoon.

The truck was being driven
by a white male in blue jeans
and a t-shirt.

Further details were not

TWO FORMER POSTAL
EMPLOYEES SENTENCED
IN MAIL THEFT CASES

Pensacola, Florida Gregory
R. Miller, United States Attor-
ney for the Northern District
of Florida, and James B.
Davis, Special Agent in
Charge of the Miami Office
of the USPS Office of Inspec-
tor General announced today
Tony David Grimsley and
Bobby Ray Pruett, both for-
mer employees of the United
States.Postal Service, were
sentenced today by United
States District Judge M.
Casey Rodgers following
their mail theft convictions.
Grimsley was found guilty
following a jury trial of theft
of 214 "movie coupons" is-
sued to mail customers by
Movie Gallery, Inc. In a sepa-
rate case, Pruett, the former
local chapter president of
American Postal Workers
Union, entered a plea of
guilty to mail theft charges
in connection with his open-
ing of first class mail parcels
and theft of the contents. Evi-
dence in both cases included
covert surveillance video,
oral and written confessions,
and testimony from law en-
forcement and civilian wit-
nesses.


Grimsley was sentenced to
six (6) months of home deten-
tion, a $1,000 fine, $800 resti-
tution to Movie Gallery, Inc.,
and two (2) years of super-
vised release. Pruett, who
was on State of Florida pro-
bation for an unrelated crime
at the time of the offenses,
was sentenced to seven (7)
months imprisonment, a $500
fine, two (2) years of super-
vised release, and a $200 spe-
cial monetary assessment.

"U.S. Postal Service employ-
ees, are given a special trust
to properly handle mail that
comes into their possession,"
said U.S. Attorney Miller.
"When even one postal em-
ployee violates that trust, it
is a cause for concern for all
customers of the mail sys-
tem."

"Although the vast majority
of the Postal Service's 800,000
employees are honest and
trusted public servants, there
are a small number who be-
tray that trust. In those in-
stances, criminal prosecution
is vigorously pursued," said
Special Agent in Charge
Davis. "The Inspector Gener-
al's mission is to promote in-
tegrity and accountability
in America's postal system."

Both cases resulted from the
investigation of the United
States Postal Inspection Ser-
vice Special Agents David
Williams and Guy Nelson.
Grimsley was prosecuted by
Assistant United States At-
torney Thomas P. (Tom)
Swaim, and Pruett was prose-
cuted by Assistant United
States Attorney Randall J.
(Randy) Hensel.

Our Most Important Policy Is True


CANADIAN LAWYER
BUSTED IN N. FLORIDA

Pensacola, Florida Gregory
R. Miller, United States Attor-
ney for the Northern District
of Florida, announced that
69-year old Jerrold L. Gunn, a
Canadian citizen and retired
attorney, was convicted
yesterday afternoon of con-
spiracy to commit wire fraud
and securities fraud and of
conspiracy to commit money
laundering. The guilty ver-
dicts followed a week and
half long trial before Senior
United States District
Judge Lacey A. Collier.

Gunn turned himself in to
the United States Marshals'
Service on August 30, 2007, af-
ter losing his fight against
extradition to the United
States following his indict-
ment on June 21, 2000. Gunn
is the final defendant to be
convicted for his role in a
multi-million dollar "pyra-
mid" scheme which purport-
ed to offer investors high-
yield returns on investments
operated by "Bridgeport Al-
liance." Twelve others have
been convicted in prior pro-
ceedings, including William
West of Niceville, Florida,
currently serving a 136-
month sentence. Previous
sentences have ranged from
63 to 156 months in prison.

The investments were
claimed to be a secret pro-
gram to purchase United
States Treasury obligations
and leverage them to earn re-
turns of 360% per year and
higher. The investment pro-.
grams, operated under the
names "Hammersmith Trust"
and "Microfund," never actu-
ally existed. Instead, the in-
vestors'money was used to
pay earlier investors in order
to promote and continue the
fraud. Throughout the fraud,
the investors' money was
laundered through a number
of corporate accounts until
finally disbursed to the use
and benefit of the defen-
dants. The organization
took in approximately $60
million from investors dur-
ing the life of the conspira-
cies. Trial evidence showed
that Gunn structured the
contracts, kept the true pur-
pose of the scheme secret
and away from regulators,
vouched for the programs'
success, and created an off-
shore bank called "AmPac" in
order to launder investment
funds.

Gunn is scheduled to be sen-
tenced on April 8; 2008. He
faces a maximum of five (5)
years imprisonment, a
$250,000 fine, and 3 years of
supervised release for the
wire fraud and securities

McCOLLUM SUES
"RESCUE
FORECLOSURE"
COMPANY,
ANNOUNCES LEGISLA-
TION TO FIGHT
MORTGAGE-RELATED
FRAUD
-Attorney General, state leaders seek
to protect homeownersfrom
deceptive practices ~

TALLAHASSEE, FL Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum
today announced a multi-
pronged initiative to combat
mortgage-related fraud,
specifically fraud involving
"rescue foreclosure" scams.
As part of the litigation and
legislation-based initiative,
the Attorney General today
filed a lawsuit asserting
South Florida-based National
Foreclosure Management
and multiple affiliates de-
frauded at least 80 homeown-
ers out of approximately $1.7
million in home equity.
These allegations were inves-
tigated by a new task force
developed by Attorney Gen-
eral McCollum to target
mortgage-related fraud, an
effort bolstered by proposed
legislation to strengthen
provisions against mortgage
rescue scams. The legisla-
tion, sponsored by Senator
MikeFasano and Represen-
tative Clay Ford, was un-
veiled this afternoon.

Beginning in October 2004,
National Foreclosure Man-
agement which now does
business as American Home
Rescue, Inc. selected home-
owners who had substantial
equity in their homes but
were in the process of being
foreclosed upon. The compa-
ny would offer to hold the ti-
tles to the homes for a year,
refinance the debt, and pro-
vide cash and credit repair
counseling to the homeown-
er, all while allowing the
homeowner to remain in
the house. The company
claimed it would deed the.
property back at the end
of the year after the foreclo-
sure had been avoided and
the homeowner's credit was
repaired.

Once the company had ob-
tained the title to the house,
the Attorney General's law-
suit. alleges the company
would strip the equity from
the homes by refinancing
them at inflated prices and
by assessing fraudulent
fees and costs, leaving little
or nothing for the homeown-
er to recoup. The home
would then be sold outright
to an investor or a straw buy-
er who would lease the home
back to the homeowner at a
rental rate far exceeding the
original mortgage payment,
virtually ensuring the home-
owner's eventual eviction.
According to the lawsuit, the
homeowners would end up
with neither the titles to the
homes nor the equity that
rightfully belonged to
them.

The lawsuit, filed with the
Office of Financial Regula-
tion, seeks restitution to the
affected homeowners, disso-
lution of the rescue foreclo-
sure companies, and revoca-
tion of the mortgage bro-
kers' licenses revoked. Don
Saxon, Commissioner of the
Office of Financial Regula-
tioht, expressed gratitude to
Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum and Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink for their
continued support and com-
mitment to protect con-
sumers.

"Mortgage fraud is a destruc-


tive crime that can destroy a
family's future in an instant,
and we need stronger laws to:
protect Florida's con-
sumers," said Chief Finan-
cial Officer Sink, who over-
sees the Department of Fi-
nancial Services and who
heralded today's actions as
essential to the fight against
mortgage-related fraud. "It is
downright disgraceful.that
some would use trickery to
steal the dream of homeown-
ership from a struggling
Floridian."

In addition to filing the law-
suit, the Attorney General
today announced the filing of
the "Foreclosure Rescue
Fraud Prevention Act,"
sponsored by Senator Mike
Fasano (R-New Port
Richey) and Representative
Clay Ford (R-Gulf Breeze).
The proposed legislation will
ensure that, among other
things, homeowners are
properly informed about
their rights when they are
signing a contract with a
foreclosure rescue entity

The proposed legislation of-
fers the following key provi-
sions:
-- A five-day right of cancel-
lation period that allows the
consumer to cancel the
agreement with the foreclo-
sure rescuer;

-- Requirements that foreclo-
sure rescuers include in the
contract clear and conspicUi-
ous notice to homeowners of
:this right of cancellation as
well as a recommendation
that the homeowner contact
the lender or mortgage
servicer prior to the signing
of the agreement and a pro-
vision that states the consul-
tant is prohibited from ac-
cepting any form of pay-
ment until all services are
completed;

-- Definitions of such terms
as "Equity Purchaser,"
"Foreclosure Consultant,"
"Foreclosure-related Ser-
vices," and "Foreclosure Res-
cue Transaction"; and

-- That all violations of this
act are defined as an unfair
and deceptive trade prac-
tices and are subject to the
penalties included in Part II
of Chapter 501, FloridaS-
tatutes.

Today's legislation is filed


under Senate Bill 992 and
House Bill 643. Parties
named in today's lawsuit are
National Foreclosure Man-
agement, Inc; American
Home Rescue, Inc.; National
Property Holding Group,
LLC; The Mortgage Practice,
Inc.; Southeast Capital Mort-
gage Company; Barrister Ti-
tle Services, Inc.; GMC Land
Services of Florida, Inc., do-
ing business as Richmond

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTERS


The new year is getting off tola good beginning for Spring-
house Quilters. Faith Stanton has worked up a list of new
classes-workshops that will be interesting and educational.
'The first workshop will be by Barbara Parks, featuring hous-
es. Workshops are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month
beginning at 9:00 AM.
Mystery quilts are fun projects for quilters. A mystery quilt,
is made as each piece of the pattern is provided at different
times. The entire pattern is not given all at one time hence
the name "mystery quilt". The quilter has no idea of what the
quilt will be until completion. Gloria Sutton is working on a
mystery as a block-of-the-month project for Springhouse
members. A total of twelve
"Pattern blocks will be given
to- participants, with the
quilters required to use 9 of
the block patterns. As each
piece of the pattern-puzzle is PANA M A
given, the quilt fits together
in a perfect combination. QISCOU N


Karen Philman participated
in a "mystery quilt" group in
2007. All fabric for the quilt
was purchased in the begin-
ning and is the feature pic-
ture in today's Springhouse
News. She had no idea when
she started the project how
the quilt would turn out but
.she was very pleased with
the outcome.

For additional information
on Springhouse Quilter's or,
any of their projects, includ-
ing beginning quilting class-
es, contact Lois Scott, 463-

DYS SOCCER TEAMS
STARTING PRACTICE


Most Dixie Youth Soccer Teams are starting to practice and
are getting ready for the season opener on February 2nd.
This determined team of seven, eight and nine year olds
(sponsored by the Advocate) practiced Friday afternoon, even
though everyone else had cancelled due to the cold, wet
weather. Way to go, kids!
If you haven't heard' from your kid's coach by now, contact
Mike Cassidy at City Hall. As always, volunteers to sponsor,
assistant coach, and to help out in the snack bar are always
needed.
Dixie Youth Soccer has seen tremendous growth in the last
few years, entirely due to the incredible community support
and participation it has received. Come on out, enjoy a day of
fun and food and support our local children's sports.


TREY FOWLER

BAGS HIS

FIRST BUCK


BOARD OF COUNTY
COMMISSIONERS

Continued from Front Page... In an effort to reduce operat-
ing costs, EMS have been granted access to the County's bulk
fuel supply. Tim Alexander assured the Board that the fuel
will not cause any damage to the vehicles and will not affect
current vehicular warranties.
EMS has also worked out a deal with Dixie Salvage where a
few of their vehicles will be utilized for fire fighting training.
Currently expected to happen late February or early March.
Charles Preston expressed concern about the amount of
noise emanating from the Dixie County Humane Society in
Old Town. The Board reminded us that the problem had been
discussed previously but had "fallen off the radar" and com-
mitted to further investigation. Another issue concerned the
differentiation between deer dog noise, which would be ac-
ceptable, and the noise generated by the incarcerated, home-
less animals, which would not.
Mr Bellot also informed about the Department of Correc-
tions plans to build a 500 bed work camp near the site of the
existing 250 bed camp. The improvements being made to the
prison road this year will aid the deployment of more inmate
clean up crews in the future.
If you have no phone service, like 30 residents of Bowlegs,
the problem is not with the phone company, this time. The
Florida Public Services Commission is responsible for defin-
ing the areas where service should be available. There may
be a back door approach to change the situation. Apply for
service, be declined, wait 3 weeks and reapply The process
should be continued with as many residents as possible.

STEINHATCHEE FIRST BAPTIST NEWS

We are really proud of our young people singing our special
music! Again thank you to Libby Gray, Jessica Downey, Timo-
thy Holden, Donnie Morrow and Leon Holden for singing;
"Come Morning"! Children brought up in church are seldom
brought up in court!

Bro. Leon delivered a message about a person's Salvation.
What is Salvation? It is so simple... it is being saved. Just
trust and believe in GOD. Only GOD provides redemption for
every person, regardless of race, rich or poor, any age, occu-
pation, nationality, status in life and regardless of what you
have done in the past.

We have so many un-spoken request for prayer. But GOD
knows each and everyone. Let's remember Leon Holden's
state test, the Joy Enrich family, Lawrence Coleman's eye
surgery, The Hubert Thornton in the loss of Mark, Joe Hall,
and all the names read at prayer meeting on Wednesday.
Thank you LORD for all the answered prayers: especially
Donnie Morrow, and the prayers of Al and Karen Hendrey
Praise GOD, yes... HE is so good! Al and Karen are now living
in Okeechobee (previously from Perry)! They gave their mov-
ing testimony of what GOD has done in their lives. How
GOD has truly: worked a miracle.

Al said nothing would ever work, only GOD, HIS mercy and
HIS forgiveness has saved his life and given him back his wife
and family! From drugs to Glory, prayer has healed this man!
And yes, God can heal you too. The darkest clouds often bring
the thickest showers of blessings. For when we surrender pui
hearts to HIM, we can then walk down this pathway of life
with ajoy in our hearts, peace in our soul, and a smile on our
faces, for our sins are forgiven and we are free!!

We were so glad to see some of our favorite folks back in
church Sunday evening. And a special thanks to Leon and
Brittany Holden, Donnie Morrow and Chris Holden singing,
"I Stand Redeemed". Love, hugs, prayers and smiles for all!


Please study the plan of

God Will Bless You


Thank God for all His wonderful blessings...what a privilege
it is to live in a country where we can still assemble ourselves
and worship the Lord! Although the.cold fingers of winter
had us in a tight grasp Sunday, we had a good turnout at
church. It was a pleasure to listen to the beautiful singing of
our choir, and hear Bro. Billy as he delivered God's well-timed
message with much enthusiasm, choosing his text from Mark'
10:17-22.

As we approach the end of a whole month into the new year,
we wonder where the time goes! However, when we are work-
ing and living for the One Who matters throughout eternity,
time becomes irrelevant. Our Children's Church continues to
do well, and what a blessing it is to see the anticipation on
their little faces as they rush forward when called. We really
appreciate those who sacrifice their time and efforts in work-
ing with the children. In other news, Bro. Pat and his class
are in need of donated items for the Care packages which
they send to our troops in Iraq once a month.

We were very proud to have visitors again Sunday As al-
ways, we welcome you back, along with all others; we thor-
oughly enjoy the fellowship!' Have a good week, remember to
be in prayer for all those on the church prayer lists, and may
God bless you.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

What a glorious day we had today. We thank God for the
much needed rain last week and for the cool weather that fol-
lowed it. Bro. Jackie and Sis. Linda were in Utah visiting
their kids and grandkids and in his absence, Bro. Bobby
Bryan brought the morning message and Bro. David Osteen
the evening message. Both did wonderful jobs and the mes-
sages were enjoyed by all. Tommy McQueen did the special
music in the morning service and the Brittons in the evening
service. They both were great. If you missed either service,
you truly missed a blessing.
We had several visitors and we want them to know they are
very special to us. We invite you back to worship with us any
time. If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to
share ours. There's lots of love at Faith and we'd just love to
share it with YOU. We had one new member join tonight and
we thank God for her. Sis. Ruby Osteen joined Faith tonight
and she's a very special lady Welcome Sis. Ruby and we look
forward to worshipping with you.
Our Seniors Group, ages 50 and over, are in the process of
planning a Valentine social. Some of the men are going to
cook hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken on the grill and the
ladies will be bringing salads, buns, chips and desserts. If
you want to help with the planning, etc. please contact Anne
Crenshaw or Alice Bryan. The plan now is to have this on
Thursday night, February 14th in the fellowship hall at
Faith.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, the ones having
surgery, the ones in the hospitals, and especially the LOST.,
When you come to church next week, bring just one person
with you and see how many lost people can be led to the Lord.
God will bless you for it. Until next week, we wish you happi-
ness, good health and prosperity See you next week,

TAX SEASON STRESS? HOW TO
PREPARE FOR POTENTIAL BILLS

(ARA) As the April 15 tax deadline creeps closer many peo-
ple mniaystfill be wondering: will I owe? It may be time to take
proactive steps to set aside money that can be used to cover
the extra expense you may soon face.

Whether you underestimated your
withholdings or experienced an unan-
ticipated bump in income, you wouldn't
be alone if you found that you owe
money on your taxes. Owing a lot -- or
even just a little -- can be stressful and
burdensome, especially as the bill ar-
rives while many are still paying off
debts incurred during the holidays.

"The good news is, preparing to pay for
a tax bill may be easier than you think,"
says Stephen Semprevivo, president of
LowerMyBills.com. "Many people can
find simple ways to save some money
that can then be used to pay off any
taxes they might owe. Even if you ulti-
mately find that you don't owe any-
thing, you can use the money you saved
to buy yourself a treat or, better yet, to
put away in savings."'

Here are five simple savings tech-
niques:

1. Evaluate your entertainment expens-
es. Americans spend more on entertaiii-
ment than they do on other vital expenses such as gas, furni-
ture and clothing, according to the Bureau of Labor Statis-
tics. Entertainment is one of the easiest areas in which to
find savings. How much do you spend in a month on movies,
restaurants and other outings? Simply staying home and
watching TV, or eating your own home-cooked meal, can cre-
.ate substantial savings.

2. Reduce your rates on everything from phone bills to cred-


and other monthly bills.

3. Spend to save really Unless you're willing to alienate
everyone in your life, holiday gifts will always be an expense.
Since you have to spend on holiday gifts anyway, do so wisely
by taking advantage of seasonal sales. From post-holiday
sales to Presidents' Day to Easter, the months before tax sea-
son are full.of opportunities to purchase and save on holi-
day gifts for next year. Next November,
when everyone else is scrambling and
spending, you will have the satisfaction of
knowing your holiday shopping is done
and that you saved money doing it. You
can earmark those savings for paying
next year's taxes.

4. Minimize your mortgage payment.
Right now there's a lot in the news about
adjustable rate mortgages that are reset-
ting to higher rates with bigger monthly
payments. If you have an ARM that's
about to reset, or if you just want to get
better terms on your fixed-rate loan, it
may be a good time to consider refinanc-
ing. Sites like LowerMyBills.com can help
you investigate your refinance options.
Just be sure to read all the terms of your
loan carefully, and if possible, consult a
financial advisor or other professional.

5. Consider seeking professional help. If
you even suspect you're going to be facing
a big tax bill, consider.consulting a tax
consultant or other financial advisor.
These professionals may be able to help
you find ways to trim your budget and set
more money aside to pay your taxes. They may also be able to
help reduce the amount you owe, or set up a payment plan
with the government.

"It's never too late, or too early, to start saving and preparing

WHEN SHOULD
YOU RE-SEAL?

(ARA) For homeowners
with an active family and
busy household, there's isn't
really a "good" time to think
about resealing tubs, show-
ers, sinks and countertops.

Because most people do not
have the luxury of waiting
24 hours for traditional
caulk to dry before using
their tubs, showers, sinks
and counters, they simply
overlook this inexpensive
home maintenance project.
Unfortunately ,this can turn
a small maintenance task
into a major repair project.

To help homeowners and re-
modelers, Polyseamseal has
introduced a new, fast-dry
silicone system. Polyseam-
seal EST Speed Seal creates
a durable, flexible and wa-
tertight seal that will with-
stand water contact only two
hours after application, al-
lowing you to shower in two
hours, which is 12 times
faster than traditional
sealants.

If you see any of the follow-
ing signs, it may be time to
reseal:

1. You see water stains on


the ceiling under an upstairs
bathroom.

2. If the caulking around the
tub, shower doorframe,
shower handles, stall base,
toilet, countertop or sink is
cracked, shrunken, missing
or moldy, it's time to recaulk.

3. Current caulk has mold,
mildew or soap scum on it.

Old or severely discolored
caulking should be com-
pletely removed and the area
properly cleaned and dried
before new caulk is applied.

Knowing when to recaulk
can help busy homeowners
quickly and easily update
the seal around bathroom
and kitchen fixtures. The
key is to keep a well-main-
tained, clean and tight seal
around water-prone areas to
prevent big repair bills
down the road.

For more information on
caulking the kitchen and
bathroom, or for product in-
formation, visit www.poly-
seamseal.com.

MEALS ON
WHEELS
UPDATE

Many have wondered if there
is a real need in Suwannee
for the program. First, it
must be understood that
Meals on Wheels is not a wel-
fare / soup kitchen program.
On the contrary! Meals on
wheels is a program pur-
posed to meet many needs,
and feeding the hungry and
homeless is not principly
that purpose. As long as I am
involved, hungry people will
not be turned away from a
truely needed meal, but pri-
marily, Meals on Wheels is a
program to assure disabled
persons and seniors in our
community get a nourishing,
balanced meal on most days.

We can use more vlounteers!
Volunteers are asked to serve
a three hour day. They will
be responsible for removing
the frozen, prepared meals
from the freezer, and placing
them in a preheated oven for
20 minutes, distributing the
meals silverware and drinks
to the seniors, and afterward
assisting in the general clean
up. Heavy (deep cleaning)";
cleaning will be provided by
Suwannee Fellowship. If you
or someone you know can
volunteer, please call or
email me at 352-542-2656 dr-
pastor@aol.com!

Many disabled and seniors
fail to eat right, and they of-
ten fail to eat at'all. As they
get older, they forget to eat,
eat poor meals due to the ef-
fort of preparation. Meals on
Wheels presents the op-
poritunity.to seniors to eat a
good meal daily in a commu-
nity enviorment, so the com-
munity can be assured the
needs of our seniors are be-
ing met daily This makes it


LOG CABIN QUILTERS

Log Cabin QUilters met Thursday, January 17th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Another busy day On eof the Log
Cabin quilts was taken out of the frame and Goldie will hem
it at home. BJ put in a top to be quilted at home. Jannie
brought in a top that is simple to piece and can be made in
many ways. Rose brought in a wreath using wood to deco-
rate. Sherrie has finished her first quilt and now she can
learn to quilt. Dorothy brought in a big bag of scraps to be
given away and everyone had a great day.

Derick and six boys were out Wednesday and what a day we
had! Four boys learned how to unroll, measure, cut, fold and
tie two fifty yard rolls of batting we use for our quilts. They
did a great job and it saved us many hours of bending to get
it all done. Thanks Lancaster.

We are full on our bus trip and if you find you can't go, please
call as we have a waiting list. It wi be a great day when we
go down and see if anyone won any ribbons.

Lunch was so good with cabbage, beets, chicken and rice,
chili, meatballs, rolls, salads, and lots of desserts and several
guests. There were fifteen present.

possible for seniors to live on
thier own longer in the com-
munity they love with a safe-
ty net securely in place to see
that their needs are met in a
timely and reasonable way.
The community meal center
becomes a safe place for care-
givers to leave a senior for a
meal for shopping, doctor's
appointment or just a bit of a
break from the rigors of 24/7
caregiving. In addition, the
meal center will become a
center for information distri-
bution too. Presentations by
agencies that serve seniors
can be held to keep seniors
up to date on matters that
concern them. The benefits
of the Meals on Wheels pro-
gram in Suwannee is real,
needed and validated by as
many as 19 people that have
been identified as qualified
for the program.

I'd like to meet with you! I'd
like to meet with all those in-
terested in being a part of
the Suwailnee Meals on
Wheels program on Tuesday
February 12th (Second Tues-
day in Feb) at 6:30 PM. Please
make every effort to attend. I
will be publishing an article
in the Suwannee Connec-
tions Newsletter, Dixie Advo-
cate and Dixie Times. Hon-
estly, I do not believe Meals
on Wheels will succeed with-
out you!

I want to remind you of two
things: First remember this
scripture, "Consider now; for
the LORD has chosen you to
build a house for the sanctu-
ary: BE STRONG, AND DO
IT." 1 Chronicles 28:10 (KJV
Bold Uppercase Emphasis
Added).

Second, keep the faith and
remember, God says for 2007,
Light the fire again!
Blessings!Dr. Michael L.
Lowery, DD., Suwannee Fel-
lowship: Senior Pastor

"JST SAY NO"
FLORIDA TAXWATCH
RELEASES REPORT ON
AMENDMENT 1 ON
PROPERTY TAXES

TALLAHASSEE Amendment 1, the pro-
posed constitutional amendment on Florida
property taxes, does not target relief to those
who need it most, perpetuates an inequitable
system and exacerbates the tax shift to those,
taxpayers who have suffered the most. This
is the conclusion of Florida TaxWatch,
which today released its analysis of the
amendment that will be considered by voters
bn January 29. The report, "Amendment 1 on
Property Taxes Is Likely to Do More Harm
than Good," reveals a serious flaw in the
amendment that would allow local govern-
ments to immediately recoup any lost rev-
enue that taxpayers would gain under the
amendment.

The report also states that the "portability"
provision. may well run afoul of the United
States Constitution, according to the expert
constitutional advice commissioned by the
Legislature. Further, Florida TaxWatch
warns that passage of the amendment could
mean the end of true property tax reform.

"Florida can, and must, do better," said Do-
minic M. Calabro, President & CEO of the
nonprofit taxpayer research group Florida'
TaxWatch. "Sound advice for amending the
constitution is 'when in doubt, leave it out.'


so high as to be of little value to most proper-
ties.
* The $9.3 billion five-year taxpayer savings
estimate is likely overstated. The proposal
does not restrict local governments' ability to
increase millage rates to recoup revenue loss-
es, thereby lessening the savings for some
and shifting more tax burden to others.
* And perhaps most importantly, if the voters
approve this new amendment, future at-
tempts to reform non-homestead property
taxes will be extremely difficult.

nomic engine, contributing more than $108
billion, or 20 percent' of Florida's gross state
product. The immediate property tax cuts
that will result from the pas-
sage of Amendment 1 on
Jan. 29 would go a long way
toward revitalizing Florida's
economy and keeping the
American dream alive.
Here's how:
1) Thousands of Floridians
.who can't, afford to buy up or
down will finally be able to
move, thanks to: a provision
in Amendment 1 called
"portability." Homeowners
will beallowed to take up to
' $500,000rof accrued SA VeO'uuP
Homes benefits to.a new
home. In Palm Beach County
alone, portability could save
taxpayers $2,145, according
to the Office of the Majority
Whip, state Rep. Ellyn Bog-
danoff, R-Fort Lauderdale.
In Martin County, it would
be $2,114, and in St. Lucie
$1,261.47
The transactions resulting
from portability would gen-
erate documentary stamp
tax income for much-need-
ed affordable housing
throughout the state. The
moves also would pump 2202
millions into local
economies for goods (furni- 490
ture, appliances, draperies,
carpeting) and services (ap-
praisals, home inspections,
pest control, painting, elec-
trical work, landscaping).
In the first year after their
purchase, home buyers typ-
ically spend nearly $9,000
for property improvements, 14,
furnishings and appliances, wwwli
according to the National -
Association of Home
Builders.
There's a trickle-down ef-
fect from these purchases,
too, as these companies
maintain offices, pay em-
ployees and independent
contractors, buy cars and
trucks for their businesses,
use phones, computers and'
other business tools and
much more.
2) The average homeowner
in Palm Beach County
would save $274 in property
taxes immediately by the
increase in the homestead
exemption to $50,000 for al-
most all properties. That's
$274 per property owner go-
ing toward local retailers
and service providers, not
local governments that
should already be flush
with cash from the rapidly
rising property values of
the past several years. Mar-
tin County homeowners
would save about $215,
while St. Lucie homeown-
ers would save $331.
Local governments have a
spending problem. While
saying that they are "living Mich"I Mt c
within their means" or even ,

they've been collecting and spending millions
more in new tax dollars. Firefighters and po-
lice officers were protecting our communi-
ties before the property tax surge and they'll
be here to protect our communities without
your savings from Amendment 1. In these
economic times, all of us must tighten our
belts..
3) Small business owners benefit from
Amendment 1 as well. The amendment in-
cludes a $25,000 exemption on the tangible
personal property tax paid on computers and
office equipment. The state estimates that
about 1 million businesses would save about
$500 a year. Do the math: That's an additional
$50 million to channel into the state economy
at a time when it's sorely needed.
4) Second and vacation homes would become
more attractive to out-of-state buyers who
might otherwise take their dollars to Geor-
gia, North Carolina or some other state.
Amendment 1 caps property-tax assessments
on non-homestead property at 10"percent.
Current owners of commercial buildings,.
rental properties and second homes have
seen their property taxes spike in recent
years, particularly those located in high-val-
ue markets. Amendment 1 would protect
these owners from unpredictable tax increas-
es year-to-year, and free up millions for other
commodities and services.
Florida's economy is in trouble. State econo-
mists estimate a deficit in the budget of $2
billion. Amendment 1 has the ability to pro-
duce $9.2 billion in savings over the next five
years again, money that could generate
more, sustainable economic activity and tax-
es statewide.
