On Tuesday January 29, 2008
the Cross City Fire Depart-
ment responded to a report of
a structure fire near Oliver
Street at around 2:00 P.M.
Fire Engines 1 and 45 were
on the scene in moments and
quickly got the blaze con-
tained.
The building, which was lo-
cated on the property Dol-
phus Peppers, was uninhabit-
ed.
At this time the cause of the
fire is unknown.

CRIME SPREE HAS CITY


COUNCIL CONCERNED
By David Ryman


L .full house of Mr Herbert Hurst, Ms. Kay Hardin, Mr Clay Locklear, Mr
Marcellus Dawson, Mr. Rick Gooding, and Mayor Lee attended the first 2008
meeting of the City Council of Cross City on Monday 15th January
After the usual preliminaries, Mayor Lee asked for nominees for the posi-
tions of President and Vice-President for the coming year. Mr. Hurst and Ms.
Hardin where unanimously, respectively, reinstated.
The council approved the minutes from the last meeting, reports from the
Fire and Police departnients, and the Clerks reports.
The Council heard from Ralph Hansen who is seeking general approval of
his plans to build professional offices on the vacant commercial site South of
Drummond bank.
The City Manager, Mike Cassidy, reported that Alco are interested in opening
a store in Cross City. The site being concidered
is opposite Putman Lodge where a 27,000 sq ft
retail store will be constructed. Alco's mission
O00000 is to be the best general merchandise retailer
I DA HIS STORY in America, serving smaller, hometown com-
munities. The council understands that Cross
3261 1-7007 City is in need of scnienT' l. iipsses.
lliimi, [, ii j The recent huiii invasions at the Dsbois:and
Gooding residences has caused conciderable
consternation amongst residents. Major con-


it has closed and kids roaming the streets in the early hours of the morning.
After much discussion, Councilor Rick Gooding proposed a motion that all
City parks adhere to new opening hours being 7:30am to 7pm in the Winter
and 7:30am to 9:30pm in the Summer. The council further defined Winter as
the period between Oct 1st and the end of April, Summer being the remain-
der. The Police Department has been given the responsibility of locking the
park whilst City staff will ensure it is opened in the morning. Organised
events, approved by the City Manager, are excluded from the time restric-
tions. The City Lawyer confirmed that one would need a very good reason to
impose a curfew. Councilor Gooding asked if Armed Robbery would be suffi-
cient.
Councilor Gooding expressed his deep appreciation to the Dixie County Sher-
iff, Cross City Correctional Facility and Cross City Police Departments for
their excellent work during the recent Gooding home invasion. Police Chief
Wesley Jones also had high praise for his officers. Great job guys!!!
Councilor Locklear's pet project, to change the election of council members
so that terms are staggered, which will remove the possibility of a complete
change of membership and subsequent loss of knowledge, will be put to the
electorate by referendum on Sept 23rd.

donate the old Fire Truck back to the Fire Department, providing that the
City can borrow it back when mobile ...Continued on page 7

Hang it up, George
:. My liberal friends will no doubt be disappointed to
learn that the George I am advising to "hang it up" is not Presi-
dent George W. Bush. Term limits will require him to hang it up
in eleven months anyway, so even if you don't like him, what.
would belthe point atthislate;,date?. .
0 t) i 1!) i4 t I
9, -. GeorgeIo'Moo vapame(Atijme senator fromiSouthDako
ta, ran for President in 1972, when he was conspicu6uslfy biried
by Richard Nixon's landslide. Oh, the wailing and hand-wring-
ing that emanated from the political left, but the
McGovern/Shriver bumper strips began showing up again a
couple of years later in the wake of the Watergate scandal and
Nixon's resignation.
It is this George that I am advising to "hang it up,"
though in fact I rather thought he'd done something of the sort
after the '72 election. However he did remain in the Senate until
thel980 election left him a victim of the "Reagan Revolution,".
and it's apparent that he's not willing to "hang it up" just yet.
On Saturday, January 12, the Gainesville Sun devoted a
half page of its editorial section to a McGovern column enti-
tled, "The case for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney." By
the way, a lialf page in that section is a clear indication of a) a
very slow news day, or b) a passionate level of support for the.
writer and/or'his issue of choice, and how many slow news'
days on the political front have we had any time recently?
I don'tsuppose pressure from the Sun's parent compa-
ny, that being the New York Times, could have had anything to
do with that, do you? Oh, shame on me again!

Well, what's the difference? The idea is that George Mc-
Govern wants to impeach the president and vice-president ten
months before they'll be out due to term limits. In fact, he's so
desperate for something like that to happen that he tosses a sort
of left-handed (no pun intended) compliment to the late Richard
M. Nixon, the left's favorite whipping boy as long as he was
alive. He said that "The nation would be much more secure and
productive under a Nixon presidency than with Bush. Indeed,
has any administration in our national history been so damag-
ing as the Bush-Cheney era?"
Well, maybe. How about Lyndon B. Johnson, architect
of our failed policies in Vietnam? Or Jimmy Carter, who failed
to muster an effect response to an act of war by Iran in 1979 and
also gave away the Panama Canal? '
I suppose it would give George McGovern a measure of
satisfaction if, in the twilight of his public life, he could scuttle
a Republican president. After being scuttled by one as a presi-
dential candidate in '72 and another as a Senator in '80, that
would have to be mighty satisfyin' to the 85 year-old campaign-
er.
Only thing is, I look at George McGovern's passion for
getting rid of Bush and Cheney at this late point in their ad-
ministration as a way to make something happen that never
has.
As provided by the Presidential Succession Act of 1947,
the Speaker of the House of Representatives would assume the
presidency in the event both the President and the Vice-Presi-
dent were unable to serve. Today, that would be Nancy Pelosi.
It would appear that such would satisfy the most heart-
felt longing of George McGovern, who certainly wasn't raising
the issue 15 months ago, when Dennis Hastert was Speaker. Or
Newt Gingrich before him. But as George himself admits, it
probably ain't gonna happen, and no doubt that's just as well.

We are visiting your County from Wisconsin. Out of all the
travelling we have done, there hasn't been a more beautiful
sight for us to see than Ten Commandments on your Court-
house steps. This is what our country was founded on thank
you for displaying them for everyone to see and be reminded
on a daily basis.
As we travel across the country we feel blessed and safe,
knowing there are people who stand by the Lord's Command-
ments. There are too many trying to destroy our country's be-
liefs that have made our country great. We love and still be-

PUBLIC SCHOOLS

ARE FAILURES
Whenever government involves itself in our free market sys-
tem, disaster happens. Today, our public education system
continues to require more of our tax money while producing
declining academic results and increasing social problems.
The government's only solution is to throw more of our tax
money at the system.
Our free market provided nearly all educational needs from.
colonial days until well into the 19th century Home school-
ing, one-room schools, and private schools flourished without
the benefit of government subsidies or directives. The prod-
ucts of this free-marlet apkptroach somehow managed to'
transform a supposedly backward wilderness nation into the
envy of the world.
Today, many Americans mistakenly believe that the public
school system is an integral part of our form of government.
They cannot conceive of its elimination. What they fail to:
recognize is that separation of school and state is not arevo-
lutionary development in our history It is a welcome return
to our philosophical and cultural roots. Go to www.the-
newamerican.com ,for
details. Search: schools.
The only viable solution is to separate school and state and
return to a tried and proven free market in education. Then
we would have many school choices, pay no school taxes, and
pay only for the education of our ow-A children. Charity
would provide for the poor.

.L'3kJT.l.J.n J. ,i
A friend of mine recently asked me to review information
supplied by the White House Office of Faith-Based and Com-
munity Initiatives. After going over this material, I do not be-
lieve this is anything in which a church commissioned to
preach the gospel of Jesus Christ could participate.
First, though President Bush has endeavored to streamline
the process of acquisition of federal monies, the burden a
faith-based group must carry appears to be anything but an
easy yoke to bear.
Second, by their own admission, policies that determine
who should be allowed to receive such funds are inherently
self-contradictory "With respect to religious hiring rights [of
'faith-based groups-that receive Federal funds], these laws are
confusing, and in some cases, contradictory" The ad-infmni-
tum explanation that receiving federal funds would in no way
jeopardize an organization's hiring/firing rules leaves me-
fearful.
Third, regarding a faith-based organization's rights to gov-
ern hiring rules the authors compared "the reaction of the
World Wildlife Fund which has received more than $115 mil-
lion in Federal support since 1996 if it were required to hire
employees without regard to their position on environmental
conservation. Or that of Planned Parenthood the recipient
of millions of Federal dollars each year if it had to hire
staff without considering views on abortion or birth control."
This association led me to wonder, "Why is anyone outside of
the biblically mandated responsibilities of human govern-
ment receiving any federal money?"
Where does President Bush (himself, a student of God's
word) find biblical credence for his view, "Yet government 0
;,can and should support social services provided by religious
people."? .This notion sounds proper and pleasantly motivat-
ed, but the New Testament grants no such role to govern-
ment. According to both Paul and Peter, authorities exist to
praise good behavior and punish evildoers; no other duty, for
which taxes are levied, is incumbent upon government (Rom
13:3; 1 Peter 2:14). Also, where does the Scripture teach that
the church exists "to increase the effectiveness of the Depart-
ment [of Education's] programs."?
As the primaries approach, let us challenge candidates to get
the federal government out of the social welfare business by
arming our selves with solid research at JBS. Org (search
"Christian") If matters such as wildlife management, family
planning, and education were turned over exclusively, to the
private sector and faith-based groups our nation would have
naturally preserved and protected wildlife, vibrant and grow-
ing.families, soundly educated children, and a more responsi-
ble citizenry.

Dear Mama,
It's been three years
Since you last held me tight
And listened to my laughter
All through that final night
I'm still doing great
Jesus watches over me
He loves little children
I wish you could see
I know it was hard
While you took care of me
To finis your college.
And earn a degree
But now you have earned it
I'm so proud of you
Your family and friends
Are proud of you, too
My sisters are growing
And have a new baby brother
I know from experience
They have the best mother!
Please give them a kiss
From their brother above
Wrap them in your arms
And give them my love


Although you can't see me
I'm watching over you
I'll always be beside you
In everything you do.


Mama, I love you
Love Kristofer

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH
NEWS

God blessed us today with a very special day at Faith. Bro.
Jackie & Sis. Linda were back from their trip to Utah and
he brought 2 good messages God had laid on his heart.
The special music just gets more and more special each
week. In the morning service, Janet Osteen sang "He'll Do
It Again" and that was beautiful. We also had a visiting
couple that sang and played guitar and banjo and they
were truly a blessing. Inthe evening service, Debbie
Phillips sang "Lead Me to the Altar" and our new all male
acappella trio made up of Jim Fisher, Kacie Crensihaw
and Tommy McQueen sang Is That The Old Ship of Zion"
and they made the hair on the back of our necks stand up.
Their voices blend so beautifully and what a talent they
have. God just continues to bless us with special talent.
We want to let our visitors know what a blessing they are
to us and we pray that they went away saying it was good
to be in the House of the Lord and feeling loved and wel-
come.

If you were just passing through, we welcome
you back anytime to worship with us. If you were looking
for a church home, we invite you to share ours.
The Seniors of our church are. having their Valentine
banquet on:Thursday night, February 14th in the fellow-
ship hall at the church around-6:30 or 7:00 PM.. If you are
50 or over, you are welcome to join us. The men will
be cooking hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken on the grill
and the ladies will bring salads, bread and desserts (or
whatever you choose to fix). If you want to help with the
preparations, decorations, etc. contact Alice Bryan or
Anne Crenshaw. Then on Saturday night the 16th the
Adults will have their Valentine banquet at the church in
the fellowship hall. For more information on that, contact
Janet Osteen. Remember this week to pray for the sick,
the bereaved and the lost. Invite someone to Sunday

School. Until then, we love you and will be.praying for
you.

TAKE STEPS NOW

TO COMBAT FIRE

ANTS

(ARA) Temperatures are on the rise, more
kids are playing outside, .and before you
know it, gardens will be flourishing. AJl
these signs point to one glorious time'of year
-- spring. For people living in predominantly
southern regions of the United States, spring
also means that fire ants are back in force.

Fire ants, an unfortunately
common pest in about 15
states, are both a nuisance
and a health risk. Taking up
residence in yards, side-
walks, playgrounds, and elec-
tricity boxes, fire ants are
most active during the
spring season. With warm,
humid air and occasional
rain showers, a welcoming
environment for fire ants is
created.

Spring is the perfect oppor-
tunity for fire ants to begin
working on their.mounds. During this time,
winged fire ants begin the task of starting
new colonies and foragers start doing some
work near the surface of the soil. Ants are
out looking for food and traveling from yard
to yard so now is the best time to stop these
pests in their tracks.

"It is extremely important to treat before the
fire ants divide into new colonies," says Neal
Denton, extension agent and county director
with the University of Tennessee. "In order
to do so, you must get to them early in the
spring before they are first waking up."

Building mounds in areas where humans
come in frequent, direct contact with them,
fire ants are a threat to families, children and

pets. The best way to combat fire ants is to
use a broadcast treatment over your entire
yard. Broadcast treatments, such as Over 'n
Out Fire Ant Killer, eliminate mounds and
ants that can't be seen. This method is a sure-
fire way to gain control and the treatment
creates a fire ant-free zone in as little as
three weeks.

The broadcast treatment can be distributed
by a spreader across the whole yard. Once
the Over 'n Out Fire Ant Killer has been ad-
ministered, control of fire ants lasts all year
long, with results visible in as few as three
days.

For homeowners looking to go the
extra mile and stamp out fire ants in
an entire neighborhood, collabora-
tion between neighbors is essential
for a continued and concurrent ef-
fort to treat for fire ants.

"Neighborhood programs are ex-
tremely valuable in controlling fire
ants," says Denton. "To stop fire
ants from spreading from one yard
to the next, an entire neighborhood
can work together and use a broad-
cast treatment that is more effective
than treating a spot here and there."

Studies have shown that areas with diligent
neighborhood programs, where multiple
homeowners treat their property at the same
time with the same treatment, can reduce the
number of active mounds by as much as 96
percent. Neighborhood programs are a
proven method to prevent fire ant infesta-
tions, making communities safer for every-
one. But for many fire ant experts, lapses in
successful neighborhood suppression pro-
grams are as irritating as a fire ant sting.

"There are a number of benefits to neighbor-
hood programs," says Tim Davis, fire ant


suppression specialist with Clemson (S.C.)
University. "The larger the treated area, the
longer the dormant period
lasts. A coordinated effort
between neighbors makes
the treated areas bigger,
making it harder for fire


S ants to re-colonize."

CARD OF THANKS

The family of Betty J. Fowler would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our
church family at New Prospect Baptist, our friends and family members who sup-
ported us during our loss.

The prayers, food, fellowship and flowers were overwhehning--thank you.

As we go through the different stages of our lives, we impact people in different
ways and they in turn impact ours. "Nana," Betty Fowler was the Elementary Li-
brarian for almost 40 years and touched many lives. Numerous people who visited
us relayed stories of how Nana could make stories come to life as she sat in the
rocking chair at school reading to the children. Some even said she read to their
children and grandchildren.

"Nana" was a very special person to many folks as was expressed by the outpouring
of love during our loss.

.Please keep us in your prayers.

Thomas, Tommy, Lisa, Chuck, Janet, Becky Fowler and Families


A SPECIAL THANK YOU

Thank you to all who participated in the Fund-raiser for Donnie Morrow in Stein-
hatchee on Saturday, January 26th.

It looked like the rain would cancel the Motorcycle Poker Run, but not so for the
diehard bikers. Twelve motorcycles decided to make the run despite the weather.
Randy Marshall, winner of the Poker Run, donated the $50.00 winnings back to the
fund-raiser.

Our community really came through for this event! There were some great raffle
prizes given away and a wonderful smoked chicken dinner was served.

Through the participation of our friends and neighbors, this event raised $2,230.00
for Donnie and his family We are so grateful for the wonderful people of our com-
munity.

Thank you to our sponsors, Barnett Realty, for the cookout, and Southern Cruisers
Riding Club of Steinhatchee, for the Poker Run. A special Thank You to Ace Hard-
ware for their generous donation. Also, many thanks to Pepperfish Furniture and
Interiors, Mason's Market, Foodland, River Haven Marina, Riverside Wine and Spir-
its, Sea Hag marina, Chico's Leather, Pepsi, hatchcornerstore.com, Sherry's Stained
Glass Art, Cracker Boys Guide Service, B&B Sanitation, Gulfstream Marina for the
use of the cooker and to much much fun for the great music.

small pet or animal.
he pictures used
were cut from fabric
nd laced in each house block. This project could be modi-
Fied to use a picture of a person or a special animal.

.pproximately 10 members attended the workshop and
worked very hard to get their projects constructed.
thanks goes to Barbara Parks for conducting the workshop.

rhe daytime beginner classes of Springhouse got off to a big
start last Thursday with the night group of classes begin-

While generations of

to help a colony thrive
emerged in the past decade,
based on research conducted
by the PMCA and landlords
in the field.
Among innovations
are deeper compartments to
better protect nestlings from
rain and from predators, and
specially-shaped entrance
holes designed to admit mar-
tins while restricting Euro-
pean starlings, an invasive,
non-native species. The
PMCA also recommends that
landlords actively manage
colony sites, including moni-
toring of nests for progress
or problems.
Because purple mar-
tins are birds of the open
sky -- catching insects on the
fly -- the PMCA's number
one tip: place housing in the
most open space available,
but where the colony can be
enjoyed and monitored.

ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE AT
MCCALL'S

We have barely put away the Christmas decorations and the
season of Lent is upon us. Lent is not a happy season like
Christmas. Lent is a time for introspection, a look within
ourselves. Lent is a time to take inventory so we may root
out the sin that so easily sneaks into our lives.

The practice of applying ashes as a sign of our repentance
can be traced back to the sixth or seventh centuries.

On February 6th, the start of Lent, a day known as Ash
Wednesday the faithful will gather in God's house acknoledg-
ing our iniquities and having the ashes applied as a sign of
their contrition.

Let us come together, as brothers and sisters in the faith, as
we celebrate this somber day, this somber season.

The imposition of the ashes will follow a brief service at 6:00
pm at McCall's Chapel United Methodist, located at 7755
South State Road 349, at the southern edge of Hatchbend.
Our telephone number is 386-935-0595.

BEACHGOERS WHO STAY HIGH AND
DRY MAY STAY HEALTHIER


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Attention snowbirds and spring
breakers: Beachgoers who stay high and dry may have
healthier fun in the sun than those frolicking on wet sand or
in the water, according to a University of Florida veterinary
researcher.

"Our objective was to understand whether beach sand could
pose a health risk to beachgoers," said Tonya D. Bonilla, a
doctoral student in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine's
department of infectious diseases and pathology who studied
three South Florida beaches over a two-year period to see
whether human health risks appear to increase based on the
level of sand exposure.

"What we found was that there was no increased health risk
due to exposure to sand on the upper beach," Bonilla said.
"However, the longer the period of time people spent in the
water and in the wet sand, the higher the probability that
they would experience some gastrointestinal illness."

Bonilla's research was conducted at Fort Lauderdale Beach,
Hollywood Beach and Hobie Beach. There were 882 respon-
dents who participated in the pilot epidemiological study and
609 who participated in the control group.

Beachgoers were made aware of the study and, if willing to
participate, were given a survey form to complete four days
after their beach visit. The questionnaire focused on type and
duration of beach activity and inquired whether participants
became ill during the four days after the beach visit. The con-
trol group consisted of people randomly chosen from the gen-
eral population who had not visited a beach in at least nine
days.

Jay M. Fleisher, Ph.D., an associate professor in the College ol
Osteopathic Medicine at Nova Southeastern University, ana-
lyzed the epidemiological data collected in the study.

"Our findings suggest that there is an increased risk of ac-
quiring gastroenteritis the longer a bather either sits in the
wet sand or stays in the water," Fleisher said. "The probabili-
ty that an individual will become sick increases over expect-
ed non-exposure rates from six out of 1,000 people for a 10-
minute exposure to approximately 12 out of 100 people for a
two-hour stay in the wet sand.

"For exposure to water, these rates increase from seven out of
1,000 people affected over expected non-exposure rates for a
10-minute stay to approximately seven out of 100 people ex-
posed for a 70-minute stay" Fleisher added. "Both show a
clear dose-response relationship in risk with increasing time
of exposure. These estimates of increased risk might seem,,
small, but when one considers how many people use this
beach in the course of a year, we can end up with a substan-
tial public health problem."

While fecal indicator levels in the near-shore waters of South
Florida's recreational beaches are routinely monitored, sand
samples from the surf zone the wet sand and the upper
beach are not. Beach sand may become contaminated by gull
droppings and other sources of fecal-derived organisms that
then diffuse into wet sand and water, said Bonilla, whose re-
search was published in the Marine
Pollution Bulletin. Her work, part of
her master's thesis worknat Nova
Southeastern University, was fund-
ed by a grant from the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency. She has con-
tinued her water-quality work at UF,
where she is pursuing her doctoral
degree.

"At this point, we don't know
whether the increased health risk is
due to pathogen exposure," Bonilla
said. "To really understand this, a
nationally published more comprehensive and targeted
epidemiological approach is need-
ross City. ed."

one day only Helena Solo-Gabriele, Ph.D., a pro-
fessor of environmental engineer-
ing at the University of Miami and
a collaborator in the National Sci-
ence Foundation's Oceans and Hu-
man Health Center, is working on
understanding how fecal indicator
levels correlate with pathogen lev-
els in her own research. Her work
primarily focuses on environmental
measurements; specifically of mi-
crobial indicators in water.
In addition to evaluating the poten-
S tial human health effects of mi-
crobes from beach sanilds, Bonilla's
paper provides new information
concerning the reservoirs and
sources of fecal indicator bacteria,
Solo-Gabriele said.

"This study emphasizes that beach
sands serve as the most significant
layl reservoir of fecal indicator bacte-
ria, and shows that the situation is
not isolated to one specific beach,
but can be widespread across re-
gions," she said. "Bonilla and her
collaborators provide a mechanistic
explanation for the potential spread

gull droppings and subsequent dis-
tribution through natural diffusion
"*1" in the environment, as well as by
people walking on the beach. The
suggestion of an association be-
tween fecal indicator levels in sand


and illness rates among humans is
very significant and points to the
need to conduct more comprehen-
sive studies of beach sand."


AIRBOAT FISHING EVENT


It's time to get signed up for the Women in the Outdoors an-
nual airboat fishing event. If you have never done this, it is a
lot of fun and you get to meet new friends who like the great
outdoors also.

For the ones of you who are new; you have to first register for
this event. The cost is $55.00. This includes a social on Fri-
day night, February 29 starting at 6:00 pm at the Trail Riders
Club in Cross City. At this social we will have a wonderful
country dinner, a silent auction on some wonderful WITO
items, a raffle and games and a chance to meet everyone who
will be going fishing on Saturday and the boat drivers. This
social on Friday night is for anyone, the cost is $10.00 for
adults and $5.00 for children. Then on Saturday, March 1stwe
will meet at Shired Island Park at 7:30 am to start a day of
fun fishing and boat riding. You will be treated to lunch at
noon and then finish the day out fishing. Saturday's event is
for women only

This also entitles you to a one year memebership to the
Women in the Outdoors, and a one.year subscription to the
WITO magazine. WITO is one of the fastest growing non-
profit conservation organizations in the world. This is not a
fishing tournament. This is an event to introduce women'to
the exciting world of fishing and the outdoors. You don't
have to be a first time fisherwoman to do this; any lady can
join. Last year we gave out prizes for the lady who caught the
biggest redfish and trout.

578-4042 for a form. You may pick up a form at Creekside
Farm Supply or Freedom Craft Airboat Shop. Signup dead-

When we count our many blessings:it isn't hard to see that
life's most valued treasures truly are free. For it isn't what we
own or buy that signifies our wealth. It is the special gifts
that have no price, our family friends and good health but
most of all having JESUS in our hearts and walking through
life with HIM .You've achieved nothing until you find GOD!
