That's a long,
long ride.


Drive carefully on Fri-
day: almost 1,000 bikers
with Bike Florida will be
returning to Fanning
Springs after a week-
long bicycle ride from
Clearwater. Most parked
their cars at Fanning
Springs and were then
bussed to Clearwater to
begin the ride. They
plan to cover between 30
to 60 miles a day, follow-
ing the Nature Coast
State Trail into Fanning
Springs.

Edmonds Enters

Commission Race
My name is Ronnie Edmonds and I am announcing
my candidacy for County Commissioner, District 5.
My goal is to work with the people about their con-
cerns for our county. Some of my objectives are to
search for ways to help bring more jobs to our com-
munity, re-examine the impact fee issue and to find
ways to bring revenue into the county without rais-
ing taxes.
I am currently employed with the
Cross City Police Department.
My wife, Marilyn and I have one
son, Lance, daughter-in-law Kris- , ,
ten, and two granddaughters Juli-
Anna and Kailey I am the
son of George Edmonds
who was the former
County Commissioner
in District 5 that served
in office from 1980-1988.
I humbly seek your sup-
port in the up-coming
election and I would
like to have an opportu-
nity to speak with you
about your concerns for
our county.

A discouraging sign for
former GP employees in
Cross City: Georgia Pa-

shut down their mill in
Talladega, Alabama in
mid-May 380 employees
will be laid off. Accord-
ing to The Birmingham
News, company spokes-
woman Julie Davis said
that the closure is due to
the bad housing market
and that "We'll monitor
the market, but we can't
predict when things will
change."

Dixie County Health Department urges

precautionary measures to prevent West Nile

and other mosquito-borne illnesses


Cross City - Due to in-
creased rainfall and some
localized river flooding
the Dixie County Health
Department emphasizes
the importance of resi-
dents and visitors protect-
ing themselves against
mosquito-borne diseases.

DOH continues to advise
the public to remain dili-
gent in their protecting
themselves from mosqui-
to bites by following the
"5 D's," which include:
*Dusk and Dawn - Avoid
being outdoors when mos-
-quitoes are seeking blood.
For many species, this is
during the dusk and dawn
hours.
*Dress - Wear clothing
that covers most of your
skin.
*DEET - When the potential exists for expo-
sure to mosquitoes, repellents containing
DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or N,N-
diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) are recommend-
ed. Picaridin and oil of lemon eucalyptus
are other repellent options. If additional pro-
tection is necessary, a permethrin repellent
can be applied directly to your clothing.
Again, always follow the manufacturer's di-
rections.


*uramage - unecK around your nome to ria
the area of standing water, which is where
mosquitoes can lay their eggs.

Tips on Repellent Use

*Always read label directions carefully for
the approved usage before applying a repel-
lent to skin. Some repellants are not suit-
able for children.


Virus


-'Products with con-
centrations of up to 30
e percent DEET are gen-
Serally recommended.
Other potential mos-
t quito repellents, as re-
ported by the Centers
for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC)
in April 2005, contain
picaridin or oil of
lemon eucalyptus.
These products are
generally available at
local pharmacies.
Look for active ingre-
dients to be listed on
the product label.
*Apply insect repel-
lent to exposed skin, or
onto clothing, but not
under clothing.
*In protecting chil-
dren, read label in-
structions to be sure
the repellent is age-appropriate. According
to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing
oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used
on children under the age of 3 years. DEET
is not recommended on children younger
than 2 months old.
*Infants'should be kept indoors or mosquito
netting should be used over carriers when
mosquitoes are present.
*Avoid applying repellents to the hands of
children. Adults ... Continued On Page 3

Nader hasn't given up yet

It was recently disclosed that perenni-
al presidential candidate Ralph Nader has
thrown his hat into the ring for the 2008 elec-
tion. So far, we've only learned that he will
be a "third party" candidate, but he'll proba-
bly find a more descriptive name for the par-
ty 1he presumes to represent, even if he has
to think one up himself.
Actually, I could think of a few names
that might apply, but I won't bring them up
just now. After all, this is a family publica-
tion.
An irony of American politics is that
Nader is liked better by those who are not
like-minded than those who (at least relative-
ly) are. Which is to say, conservatives like
him better than liberals, even though his po-
sitions on the issues clearly indicate that he
is of (or possibly even beyond) the liberal
persuasion himself.
So, why do conservatives like him and
liberals don't? Because he is what's known
in the parlance of politics as a "spoiler." Re-
member the 2000 presidential race? It was
settled by the Florida vote, which was closer
than any other in our nation's history And
what gave George W. Bush the nod was large-
ly attributable to the votes for~lph Nader
that would otherwise have golo Al Gore.
While it is not fashionaiW for left-
leaning candidates to condemn Ralph Nader,
it's a safe bet that neither Barack Obama nor
Hillary Clinton would consider him for a
cabinet position. But then, neither would
John McCain. The difference is', the Republi-
cans will encourage him to run as a third.
party candidate, whereas the Democrat can-
didates wish he'd stay out of it.
The ideal third party lineup for our
liberal friends would, of course, be Al Gore
in the top spot and Ralph Nader as his VP.
:_Vbattree-hugger could resist that lineup? It
could be called the "Earth Party" Now, that
would split the liberal base wide open and
virtually assure a Republican victory in No-
vember, which is why Gore would never
even consider such a move.
Another reason why Al Gore might
not get involved in some absurd third party
scheme that would alienate him from his
party of choice is that he just could wind up
as the Democrats' candidate in the Novem-
ber election. Think about it. Hillary recently
tried making nice to Barack, but she had her
fingers crossed behind her back. She consid-
ers the nomination, and for that matter the
presidency itself, to be an entitlement. If
that fight gets nasty enough, we could see a
brokered convention with neither of the two
top contenders getting the nod.
That, of course, would require a can-
didate with a lot of status; let's say, someone
who narrowly missed the presidency in 2000
and has since won an Oscar and a Nobel
Peace Prize.
Well, at least we know that wouldn't
be Ralph Nader. Still, it's kind oWun having
him around at election time.

What's Missing at Waldo Park?


Kathy McKinney


*r" ^ Waldo park has a great loca-
tion; there's no doubt about
that. The old "Spillers High-
way" is a heavily travelled
road and is central to many
of us who live in the Ham-
mock area. So why is the park always empty? Except
for the occasional Saturday birthday party or the late
afternoon migrant-worker basketball game, the play-
ground sits, quiet and unused, with nobody but a pass-
ing stray dog for company.

It only takes about fifteen minutes for the reasons for
the unpopularity of the Waldo playground to become
apparent. "Moooooooommmm....can we go home? I'm
hot," my son Mitchell starts to whine. "The slide is
hot and it burns my butt." He's right. There's no
shade anywhere in the playground area. None. Just
merciless Florida sun baking shiny metal play equip-
ment. Touching it in July must be like sitting down
on a seat belt buckle that's been baking in a mall park-
ing lot all day. No thanks, I'll pass. My kids do, too.

Instead of the almost radioactive slide, they decide to
try the merry-go-round thing. (Do those things have a
proper name? I don't know. I always think of them as
the "kid-slinger-offer.") On the way to it, they
both have to stop and pick the sandspurs out
of their shoelaces and pant hems. Sand-
spurs have been as bad as I can remember /,
them this year; but in a park where kids
like to run and play, and inevitably fall
down, hands first? That's a fun killer.

The kids finally migrate over to the swings
and are starting to enjoy themselves, so I look for
a place to sit down and watch them. OK, I'm still
looking: nope, nowhere. There is not a single
bench inside the fenced-in play area for adults to
sit and supervise their children. Not. A. Single. One.
This is a problem. I suppose I could stand in the hot
sun and watch them for a few minutes, but my good-


A cleaner city and

county

Dear Editor:

This is our Country, Land, and Town! I am proud that
I am a resident of Cross City in Dixie County Howev-
er, there are areas of our beautiful county that would
be so improved if people would take pride in where
they shop or travel.

Look at our roadsides as you take a scenic tour of
our area. Soda cans, beer bottles, papers, plastic
bags, etc. these are eyesores! TRASH! While cleaning
the roadsides, I've watched people throw paper, plas-
tic, cans, etc from their vehicle windows. This makes
you wonder if they think you like to clean up after
them or look at their trash instead of the beautiful
countryside.

It also distresses me to see that there are people here
who use our Post Office as a paper dump. Walk into
our Post Office any time of the day or night and you
will see where people dropped paper, either large
pieces or small bits, on the floor and left it. Where is
their pride, not only in this or any other public build-
ing, but in themselves? The only time it is clean is
when the person responsible for cleaning it has
worked on the area they are in. After that person
walks into another section, you can find new mud, pa-
per, or small pieces of paper lying around.

I don't believe the postal employees like to work
where trash is on the floor. There are trash cans in
four places in the lobby, is it too hard to pick up what
is dropped; then, dispose of it properly? I wonder if
they treat their own homes or work places like this.
How hard is it to just pick up trash when you see it
and dispose of it even if you didn't drop it? Let's take
pride in ourselves and our town- and keep it clean!
Respectfully,
Mary Kennedy

ness, that is going to get old rather quickly Why is
there nowhere to sit? The picnic benches would be
nice and are lovely and shaded...but they're hundreds
of feet from the playground and outside of the fenced
area. It doesn't seem safe to leave small kids playing
on monkey bars just to sit down. I can't help but won-
der what a young mother with small kids AND a new
baby who needs to be out of the sun would do. This
playground is definitely not family friendly yet.

I briefly consider the swings. They appear to be stur-
dy, with good chains, but another look at my middle-
aged backside that spends more time in a chair look-
ing at a computer screen than on a rowing machine
makes me discard that idea. Luckily, the munchkins
have tired of swinging and are hot and sweaty and
ready to go home, so we head home with a quick stop
at G&T for some cool liquid refreshment after our hot
ordeal.

I know county recreation budgets are tight. I know
grant money, particularly in this economy is scarce.
However, it seems a shame to have such a centrally lo-
cated park that is neglected and unused when a few in-
expensive remedies could improve the community's
enjoyment of the facility tremendously

Why not have a few benches with paid sponsors, like
those that you see in Cross City....you know, with
signs painted on the backs? The benches would pay
for themselves and not cost taxpayers a dime. The Ad-
/ vocate will sponsor one. Perhaps a local nursery
f (are you reading this, Mr. Wyckoff?) would donate
fast-growing vines and someone could be persuaded to
donate the construction of a covered arbor, like you
see over the walks at Silver Springs. It need not be ex-
Upensive. The vines would cover the arbor and provide
Shade for parents and a touch of natural beauty to the
whole park. Perhaps the FFA could donate some time
to plant shade trees, as well.

Waldo Park is an asset to our county for Old Town
families. It wouldn't take much effort to make it a
friendlier place to play.

CFO Sink

announces

lawsuit to

recover

additional

money for Poe

companies'

claims


TALLAHASSEE- Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink announced today that the Department of Finan-
cial Services (DFS) filed a civil lawsuit against the offi-
cers, directors and affiliates of three former Florida in-
surance companies.
Lawyers for DFS, the court-appointed Receiver of At-
lantic Preferred Insurance Company, Florida Preferred
Property Insurance Company and Southern Family In-
surance Company (Poe Companies), have now deter-
mined the state has the right to recover additional
money DFS' lawsuit, filed Friday in the Second Judi-
cial Circuit Court, seeks damages in excess of $100 mil-
lion from the officers, directors and affiliates of the
now-insolvent insurance companies.
"Florida's insurance consumers were forced to foot
the bill when the Poe Companies became insolvent so
that policyholders could have their claims paid," said
CFO Alex Sink, who oversees DFS. "We will aggres-
sively pursue any opportunity to recoup additional
funds to reduce the assessments levied against Flori-
da's insurance consumers."
DFS has served as the court-appointed Receiver of the
Poe Companies since the Second Judicial Circuit Court
ordered the Poe Companies into liquidation on May 31,
2006. As Receiver, DFS took control of the Poe Compa-
nies' operations and liquidated the companies' assets
to pay outstanding claims. More than 320,000 Floridi-
ans held insurance policies from one of the Poe Compa-
nies when the companies were ordered to be liquidated,
and most policies were automatically transferred into
Citizens Property Insurance Corporation in July 2006.
The Florida Insurance Guarantee Association (FIGA),
which was established by the Florida Legislature to
handle the claims of insolvent insurance companies,
has paid $1.2 billion in claims from the three Poe Com-
panies as of January 31, 2008. More than 46,600 policy-
holder claims have been filed against the Poe Compa-
nies, and FIGA expects to pay approximately an addi-
tional $123.5 million for claims still needing to be paid.
As a result of the Poe Companies' liquidation and need
to pay outstanding claims, FIGA assessments could to-
tal approximately $790 million on Floridians' insur-
ance policyholders.

ceivership can be found at:

Baby with local ties

Seeks financial assistance
Katlin Rae Boswell, the daughter of Johnathan Boswell and Jamie Willoghby of
Old Town, was born only 25 weeks after conception (which equates to being at
least 2 months premature at birth). Katlin is fighting for her life right now! She
needs our prayer and support! Katlin is suffering from jaundice, has underdevel-
oped lungs, and currently underwent two emergency surgeries on her bowels (re-
sulting in a baby colostomy) and two blood transfusions (resulting in four pints of
blood). Both parents are young (Jamie is 21 and Jonathan is 19) and are uninsured.
The medical treatments are extremely costly and a medical fund is being estab-
lished for our "Little Miss Katlin" (with a goal of $100,000 to help with the costs).
Please pray for Katlin, and spread the word so that we may start a prayer chain for
her.
Baby Katlin needs your
prayers and support!
A bank account will be setup.
Contact (352)-578-6048
for more information.
Thank you in advance for your compassion as it is
truly appreciated.

Shell Mound Pier - Reborn


Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge announces
the opening of the newly constructed Shell Mound
Fishing Pier. The old structure was severely damaged
by tropical storm Alberto in May, 2006 and funding
for reconstruction became available in October, 2007.

The most popular site of the Refuge will once again
host anglers, eager photographers and birdwatchers
as they enjoy the rich sights and sounds of the out-
doors. "It doesn't matter if we catch any keepers; it's
just the being there," says Dorothy of Williston.

The one hundred and fifty foot pier reaches out into
the estuarine waters of the Gulf of Mexico that sur-
round the Shell Mound Unit of the Refuge. The fish-
ing pier, Shell Mound Trail, and Dennis Creek Trail
provide memorable family outdoor enjoyment. Shell
Mound Trail crosses the five acre, six thousand year-
old mound that was built before the great pyramids of
Egypt and reveals a spectacular view of the Gulf
from the bench atop the mound.

Nearby Dennis Creek Trail, after crossing the small
bridges over the salt barren, winds through a coastal
island scented with the aromatic leaves of the vanilla
plant. Benches along the way offer a quiet spot for
spying wading birds in their search for food.

For a great day's outing, take your family to Shell
Mound Pier for some fishing ...or birdwatching, ... or
photographing,.. .or hiking, .. .or exploring. There's
an abundance of recreational opportunities at your
local refuge, the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge, part of the t . Fish & Wildlife Service.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for
conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife,
plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of
the American people. The Service manages the 100-
million-acre National Wildlife Refuge System, which
encompasses 547 national wildlife refuges, thousands
of small wetlands and other special management ar-
eas.

Old Town Chicks Red

Hatters Picnic

On March 25th,08 the Old Town Chicks Red Hat-

ters enjoyed a picnic on the Gulf at Hagans
Cove outside of Steinhatchee. Oh yes it was
cold but we
did have a fire
and hamburgers I
and hot dogs and ..
lots of friendship , .
and good food, of
course, that is
what we Red Hat-
ters Do is have
good food and
desserts. Our t
Hostess Sharon
Fronk had everything planned so well and we lacked
for nothing and we were all bundled up like Red Hat
Snowmen.

Guess we don't have to tell you that we were the only
ones there to picnic but better than waiting until
Scalloping Season when it would have been crowded.
Check on us next month to see what we are going to
be up to. Till then.

Hands-Only CPR simplifies
saving lives for bystanders
New statement from the American Heart Association puts
life-saving skills in your hands

Chest compressions alone, or Hands-Only Cardiopul-
monary Resuscitation (CPR), can save lives and can
be used to help an adult who suddenly collapses, ac-
cording to a new American Heart Association scien-
tific statement. Hands-Only CPR is a potentially life-
saving option to be used by people not trained in con-
ventional CPR or those who are unsure of their abili-
ty to give the combination of chest compressions and
mouth-to-mouth breathing it requires.

"Bystanders who witness the sudden collapse of an
adult should immediately call 9-1-1 and start what we
call Hands-Only CPR. This involves providing high-
quality chest compressions by pushing hard and fast
in the middle of the victim's chest, without stopping
until emergency medical services (EMS) responders
arrive," said Michael Sayre, M.D., chair of the state-
ment writing committee and associate professor in
the Ohio State University Department of Emergency
Medicine in Columbus.

By using Hands-Only CPR, bystanders can still act to
improve the odds of survival, whether they are
trained in conventional CPR or not, Sayre said.
"Many times people nearby don't help because
they're afraid that they will hurt the victim and
aren't confident in what they're doing," he said. "We
want people to know that they can help many victims,
just by calling 9-1-1 and doing chest compressions.
Don't be afraid to try it. We are sure many lives will
be saved if the public does Hands-Only CPR for adult
victims of sudden cardiac arrest."

Hands-Only CPR should not be used for infants or
children, for adults whose cardiac arrest is from res-
piratory causes (like drug overdose or near-drown-
ing), or for an unwitnessed cardiac arrest. In those
cases, the victim would benefit most from the combi-
nation of chest compressions and breaths in conven-
tional CPR.

PAWS Party - Big Success


Even though the weather did not cooperate, the PAWS
(Pets Are Worth Spaying) fundraiser was a great suc-
cess. Funding for more than fifty animals to be
spayed or neutered was raised by ticket attendance,
raffle and auction! PAWS has helped pet owners in
the Steinhatchee and Jena communities neuter their
pets since organizing almost ten years ago.

The party held at Gulf Stream Marina began with a
"Yappy Hour" as supporters arrived in the drizzle. A
"Kibbles and Bits" dinner soon followed. PAWS es-
pecially thanks Tracy and Andy Dowd and Jamie
Pate, from Gulf Stream who offered their services for
the event. Pat Crawford made a gorgeous cake deco-
rated with cats and dogs as a centerpiece for the
dessert table. It not only looked good, it tasted good!

Gary Atkins, a Steinhatchee weekender from Jack-
sonville, was kind enough to lend his superb services
as an auctioneer for the event. He cajoled and joked
his way through a huge assortment of items donated
to the cause including stained glass pieces, oil paint-
ings, hand crafted furniture, coolers, fishing tackle
,etc. There was a lot of laughter associated with the
auction and everyone who bought something knew
his or her money had gone to a great cause. PAWS
thanks all the buyers and all the businesses and indi-
viduals who donated items for the auction. It could
not have been a success without your support.

The PAWS committee included Susan Jones, Nancy
Conrad, Camille McElwee, Mickey Nyberg.and Susan
Curtis.

If you would like to join PAWS in its effort to reduce
the unwanted animal population or if you have a pet
that needs spaying or neutering, you can send a check
to PAWS, P.O. Box 47, Steinhatchee, FL 32359 or call
Nancy Conrad at 352-498-7289.

crease the amount of garbage that is
dumped at this particular location.

Land have stated he may have a key
to the gates for access. Attorney
McMillan stated she is concerned
with who actually owns the road.
She stated if the County has main-

He assured the Board that all
campers have-holding tanks, their
own electricity and water supply.
Commissioner Hays stated he thinks
the dog trials will be a great addition
to Dixie County He added that he is
concerned with the camping issue be-
cause he does not want the Board to
set a precedent that will bind them to
allowing camping for everyone who
requests it. Attorney McMillan stat-
ed she would like to look into past
camping policy and procedures. She
added that Mr. Williams would need
to purchase a temporary use permit
regardless of the camping on his
property Mr. Williams stated he
would move the trials to Lafayette

sary fire compliance corrections.

BAILEY BISHOP AND LANE:
Phil Bishop appeared before the
Board stating there had been a prob-
lem with the lab test on the Gornto
Road and part of 351A. He stated the
density is coming back less than
what they had expected and to raise
the LBR numbers they will need to
thicken their base. He explained this
can be done by supplementing the
contract because the money is in the
Grant budget to correct this problem.
He assured the Board that the supple-
ment is 100% DOT funded. Mr. Bish-
op also explained this error is caused
by the material and not the contrac-
tor. Adding additional lime rock to
the mixture will fix the problem. The
motion to approve contingent upon
the final pricing being correct was
made by Commissioner Valentine
and seconded by Commissioner
Hunt. Board approved. Mr. Bishop
stated he also needed approval on a
resolution supporting the supplemen-
tal funding. The motion to approve
the supporting resolution was made
by Commissioner Hays and seconded
by Commissioner Johnson. Board
approved.

Mr. Bishop reported that additional
funding was received on behalf of
Veterans Road from DOT so work can
begin and be completed soon.


Mr. Bishop submitted another supple-
mental agreement for the Loop Road
for the Chairman's signature due to a
typographical error In the dollar
amount on the original. In addition,

tention and FEMA standards.

Commissioner Hunt stated before

companied by WWII diplomacy infor-
mation.

SERVICES DIRECTOR:
Mr. Alexander appeared before the

units. He also stated he received no-
tification that the NCFRPC will be
here for site surveys for HAZMAT
generators next week.

Mr. Alexander addressed the Board
about the problems with citizens not
having adequate posting of their 911
addresses. He stated this is a major
problem that is causing delayed re-
sponses to calls and that is punish-
able by a fine if not complied with
(Per County Ordinance). He recom-
mends advertising the Ordinance in
the Paper and giving citizens a sec-
ond chance to comply before fines are
given.

Mr. Alexander stated the Fire Depart-
ment budget is at a shortfall and he
commends Darian Brown and staff
for the great job they do. He also stat-
ed a business has been started near
Chavous and Kate Green Roads that
is not in compliance because there is
no fire suppression. John Jenkins
stated he will issue a stop work order.

Commissioner Hunt asked if there
had been a drop in fuel cost due to
the purchase of bulk fuel for Emer-
gency Services Mr. Alexander stat-
ed there had been a decline in cost
but the Voyager cards have expired
and they are looking at going back to
tanks

CALVARY TEMPLE ASSEMBLY

Never has there been a greater need for solid scrip-
tural teaching of God's Word. This is exactly what we
have endeavored to establish at Calvary Temple. We
attempt to teach a solid and balanced message that
will establish your faith in all areas of life. At the pre-
selit we are focusing on two major themes of great
importance to every living person. On Wednesday we
are teaching on the subject of prayer in an informal
and interactive format. This is so that our congrega-
tion can ask questions and share insight. On Sunday
mornings we are teaching a balanced message on the
subject of divine healing. With so much sickness
among us today this is an important message. Please
consider joining us. If you are simply looking for an
emotional high only or a Pentecostal put-on then Cal-
vary "is not" the church you are looking for. Real peo-
ple -- serving a real God -- looking for real answers.
Services are Sunday @ 10:30 Wed.@ 7:00. If you have
questions feel free to call Pastor Jim Hurst 498-3023.


Please study the plan of

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST NEWS

As the transformation of spring brings forth beauti-
ful new life, we are reminded of our Savior Who died
on a cruel cross 2,000 years ago as a living Sacrifice
for our sins, but rose again on the third day, tri-
umphant over death and sin, having made the only
way possible for us to achieve eternal life, through
faith in Him. It is a blessing to come together and
praise His name at every opportunity On Sunday,
our choir and musicians sounded really good, after
which we were blessed with a special song by Aimee
and April, who both did an outstanding job...thank
you, ladies! Bro. Billy brought two wonderful mes-
sages, one from Romans 5:12 and 2nd Corinthians
5:21, and the evening message from Matthew 27:1-8.

On Sunday, April 6th, we will commemorate the
Lord's Supper as a part of our evening service. Our
monthly Pastor/Deacons meeting is scheduled for
Monday evening, April 7th, and our Church Business
Meeting will follow on Wednesday evening, April 9th.
We have more upcoming events scheduled, so please
keep reading...

We hope you are having a good week, and ask you to
be diligent in your prayers for those on all the church
prayer lists, our President and other leaders, and our
men and women in the armed forces. Remember, you
are always welcome to visit and fellowship with us at
NPBC...we cherish our visitors. 'Til next time, may


God bless and keep you
safe.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

Our "Fifth Sunday Festivities" at Faith were wonder-
ful. We enjoyed yet another dinner in the fellowship
hall following the morning services and in the
evening service our 5th Sunday night sing was glori-
ous.

As we start into April, we'd love to invite you to share
some of the above with us. We cordially invite you to
visit us, join us, or just whatever your needs may be.
We had visitors oh Sunday and we want them to
know they were a special blessing to us and we pray
that you were made to feel welcome and loved. We
pray that you will join us again. If you are looking
for a church home, we invite you to share ours, and if
you were just passing through, we invite you back
anytime.

Remember this week to pray for the less fortunate.
We have folks in the hospitals, ones who are recuper-
ating from surgery, and those who are out with this
cold/flu/pneumonia that's going around. A prayer in
their behalf would be very appreciated.

If you've been missing Sunday School, we pray that
you'll come back and join us. Bring your little ones
out on Wednesday night to enjoy the AWANA group.
We'll be looking for you this week at all the services.

Got Termites?

Tf ermites aren't just out to eat the wood in your
home. A new University of Florida study shows
the voracious insects like to feast on your home's
insulation, too - making it nearly 75 percent less ef-
fective.

In tests measuring how termites damage the thermal
properties or insulation in homes and other buildings,
three types of widely used construction materials -- 2-
by-4 boards, five-ply plywood and foam board insula-
tion -- were exposed to the pest for eight weeks by ento-
mologists at UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.

"All three building construction materials were dam-.
aged by termites, but the pest caused more damage to
insulation than to either the wooden 2-by-4 or plywood
samples," said Phil Koehler, an entomology professor
who supervised the study by graduate student Cynthia
Tucker and research associate Roberto Pereira. Their
findings will be published in the April issue of the
journal Sociobiology

The thermal imaging tests, which measured heat
transfer through the three building materials, focused
on damage caused by a species of subterranean ter-
mite, Reticulitermesflavipes, that's well known in
North America.

Tucker, who is completing work on her doctoral de-
gree in entomology at UF's College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences, said they were surprised to find
that rigid foam board insulation was most heavily

damaged by termites, with 12 percent of the material
being removed by termites in eight weeks, causing a
27 percent loss in insulation values. "Most types of in-
sulation are composed of plastic that's not a source of
food for termites, but the soft texture of insulation al-
lows termites to build extensive tunnels and consume
paper that lines the outside surface," Tucker said. "In
fact, the insulation materials are an almost ideal habi-
tat because they
protect the pest
from cold tem-
peratures." After termites ate just

When the pest attacked 2-by-4 boards, consuming 6.7
percent of the wood by tunneling along the fibers and
within softer spring wood, there was a 35 percent drop
in insulation values.

have been overlooked," Tucker


Termite damage has been most
commonly thought of in terms of
weakening structures, making in-
fested areas prone to col-
lapse, she said. Water dam- -
age is also linked to these ter-
mites because they bring moisture up from the soil
into structures.

Pereira said homeowners should make sure a high
quality pre-construction termite treatment is done
and a termite-protection contract is maintained. Once
termites damage the structure, killing the pest will
not correct the damage or restore insulation proper-
ties.

D.R. Sapp, president of Florida Pest Control and
Chemical Co. in Gainesville, said the research pro-
vides valuable information that many homeowners
overlook.

Insulation can be a "termite turnpike" because the
foam material has a low density and holds moisture,
he said, making it easy for the pest to quickly tunnel
through buildings and attack wood.

"Homeowners always are concerned about anything
that can affect the value of their homes, especially
now when there is a downturn in the housing mar-
ket," Sapp said.

Things You Learn from Kids

1. Garbage bags do not make
good parachutes.

2. A 3-year-old is louder than 200
adults in a crowded restaurant.

3. If you spray hair spray on dus
bunnies and run over them with
roller blades, they can ignite.
4. If you hook a dog leash over a
ceiling fan, the motor is not
strong enough to rotate a 42-
pound boy wearing Batman un-
derwear and a superman cape. It
is strong enough, however, to
spread paint on all four walls of
a large room.

5. When using the ceiling fan as
a baseball bat, you have to throw
the ball up a few times before
you get a hit. A ceiling fan can
hit a baseball a long way
6. The glass in windows (even
double pane) doesn't stop a base-
ball hit by a ceiling fan.

7. When you hear the toilet flush
and the words "Uh-oh," it's al-
ready too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox
makes smoke, and lots of it.
9. Certain Legos will pass
through the digestive tract of a
six-year-old.

AWARDED FEDERAL FUNDS UN-
DER THE EMERGENCY FOOD
AND SHELTER NATIONAL BOARD
PROGRAM

Dixie county has been chosen to re-
ceive $7,872.00 to supplement
emergency food and shelter pro-
grams in the county.

The selection was made by a Na-
tional Board that is chaired by the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency and consists of representa-
tives from The Salvation Army;
American Red Cross; United Jewish
Communities; Catholic Charities,
USA; National Council of the
Churches of Christ in the USA; and,
United Way of America. The Local
Board was charged to distribute
funds appropriated by Congress to
help expand the capacity of food
and shelter programs in high-need
areas around the country.

A Local Board made up of the May-
or, elected county officials, local
representatives of several charities
and a cross-section of the popula-
tion will determine how the funds
awarded to Dixie County are to be
distributed among the emergency
food and shelter programs run by
local service agencies in the area.
The Local Board is responsible for
recommending agencies to receive
these funds and any additional
funds available under this phase of
the program.

Under the terms of the grant from
the National Board, local agencies
chosen to receive funds must: 1) be
private voluntary non-profits or units
of government, 2) have an account-
ing system 3)practice nondescrimi-
nation, 4) have demonstrated the
capability to deliver emergency food
and/or shelter programs, and 5) if
they are a private voluntary organi-
zation, they must have a voluntary
board. Qualifying agencies are
urged to apply.

Dixie County has distributed Emer-
gency Food and Shelter funds pre-
viously with United Christian Ser-
vices of Dixie County, Inc. partici-
pating. This agency was responsi-
ble for providing mortgage or rent
payments for three families, and
utility payments for 49 families in
2007.

Public or private voluntary agencies
interested in applying for Emer-
gency Food and Shelter Program
funds must contact Martha Jane
Osteen at PO Box 608, Cross City,
FL 32628 or call 352-498-3889 for
an application. The deadline for ap-
plications to be received

Dear Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail Working Group Members,

It is with great pleasure that I intro-
duce the new Park Manager of the
Suwannee River Wilderness Trail
and the Nature and Heritage
Tourism Center, Ms. Brenna
Daniels.

Brenna started her career with the
Florida Park Service in 2002 as an
AmerlCorps member. She has also
worked as a Seasonal Park Atten-
dant at Paynes Prairie and as a
Seasonal Administrative Assistant at
the District 2 office. Most recently
she has served the 40 parks within
District 2 as the Citizen Support and
Volunteer Program Manager. She
holds a BA Degree from UF and
has served on many Florida Park
Service committees. Her knowl-
edge, skills, abilities, energy and
enthusiasm will serve the visitors of
the trail and the center well.

Brenna and I will be visiting four lo-
cations along the River as an op-
portunity for Brenna to get to know
the fantastic people that she will be
working with. All of you have made
me and the past Park Manager, Ben
Harris, feel welcomed as we visit
your communities and I know you
will make Brenna feel welcomed as
well. If you can find 10 minutes to
stop by and introduce yourself dur-
ing one of the days and times be-
low, I really would appreciate it.

Fishing For

Spawning Bass

By Jay Yelas

Among anglers, there is perhaps no
more controversial topic than whether
or not, as conservationists, we ought to
fish for bass while they are spawning.
Battle lines on this issue were drawn in
the sand long ago - some northern laws
that prohibit it date back to the 1800s -
with no end to the argument in sight.

Those against fishing for bass during
the spawn contend that it disrupts the
breeding cycle, resulting in fewer fish
in the future. However, studies indicate
that fishing during the spawn, even if
specifically for trophies, does not ap-
pear to harm the bass populations. Ob-
viously, taking a spawn-ready female
from the bed will, if she dies, reduce
the numbers of young bass produced.
But bass produce thousands of spawn
every year, leaving the surplus millions
of juvenile fish to become food for other
species - so numbers aren't an issue.
Further research has shown that if a
big female hasn't spawned yet and is re-
leased in good shape, then it is likely
she will spawn.

Contrary to some beliefs, a bedding
bass is not easy to catch, particularly
the big females. It is true that the small
males are often aggressive in their
guardian duties, but the trophy fish is.
very difficult to catch. To catch fish dur-
ing this time of year, I use two methods,
depending on whether or not the water
is clear enough to see the beds.

If the water is reasonably clear, I look
for hard-bottomed coves, a place where
the bottom will be mostly pea gravel
and chunk rock. Once there, I get on the
deck of my boat and watch for the most-
ly round nests, areas that have been
cleared off by bass fanning their tails.
Once I spot a nest, I either look for a
bass or its shadow. Once I spot the fish -


be it a small male or a large female - I
use my spinning reel, spooled with 10-
pound Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocar-
bon line (especially if the fish have al-
ready been pressured) or a casting reel
spooled with 17- or 20-pound 100% Fluo-
rocarbon, and cast a white, Texas-
rigged Berkley PowerBait Flippin'
Tube, with the hook barely piercing the
skin of the bait.

I position my boat far enough away
from the nest so as to not spook the
bass, but close enough that I can still
see what is going on. After casting just
beyond the nest (if the fish hasn't al-
ready gone for the bait), I hop the tube
into the nest, working it through the
nest area searching for the "sweet spot."
The sweet spot - for some unknown rea-
son - is an area of the nest that, when a
bait reaches it, will cause the fish to at-
tack. It may take several minutes or
several hours to get the bass to react,
but when it does, it will turn itself side-
ways and scoop the bait off the bottom
in an effort to remove the intruder from
the nest - not always to eat it. Because
the hook is barely in the bait, it will be
easier to set the hook.

If the first approach doesn't work, a like
to turn to a dark colored Berkley Gulp!
Lizard and try the same tactics. Howev-
er, unlike the white tube, the dark lizard
is harder to see in the water. If the wa-
ter is too murky to see the nests, try
Carolina rigging in the shallows. And if
you're after smallmouth bass, look for
underwater cover to hold bedding fish.

Fishing the spawn can be fun, difficult
and rewarding all at the same time. Just
be sure to practice catch and release so
that other anglers will have the oppor-
tunity to enjoy the fishing, too.

Retired? On Social Security?

How to get your tax check in May


The average American will get a check
from the Government based on their tax
return. What about those Americans
who aren't re-
quired to file
States; but still
qualify for the
� wr- rebate? If you
[ ' 34. don't usually
" , * file a return
' . m and are in one
L -.-,w of the three
j categories be-
v., ShU9, low, you may

money from
the govern-
ment under
the stimulus
payment plan.

1. Social Security Beneficiaries
(Not SSI)
2. Veteran Beneficiaries (Disability,
Pension, and Survivor Benefits)
3. Income Earners whose income is
between $3,000 and $8,750.

In order to get your stimulus package re-
bate check, you will need to file a Form
1040A or 1040 with the IRS. The form is
simple to do and requires relatively little
information.

First, let's see if you'll qualify for a re-
bate check:

If you fit in to one of the above three
categories, and your income from these
benefits plus any wages earned is at
least $3,000 you qualify for a $300 Stimu-
lus Payment Check. If you are married
you should qualify for $600. Taxpayers
may also qualify for an additional $300
for each qualifying child who is under
the age of 17 as of December 31, 2007.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)


does not qualify.

If you received at least $3,000 in Benefits
and/or wages, here is what you'll have to
fill out on Form 1040A or Form 1040:

1. Enter your name, address, Social
Security Number, and filing status on
the form. Then just
2. Enter the total amount of VA
and/or Social Security benefits you re-
ceivedon line 14a of Form 1040A or line
20a of Form 1040.
3. If you need to include wage earn-
ings to reach the $3,000 qualifying level,
enter that amount on Line 7 of Form
1040A or 1040.
4. In addition you should write the
words "Stimulus Payment' at the top of
the Form.

Where to send Form 1040A or 1040:
Once you fill it out, make a copy of your
records, and then mail the form to the
following address:

Department of the Treasury
Internal Revenue Service
Atlanta, GA 39901-0015

Where to get help:

You can find Form 1040A and Form 1040
for free at most libraries and Post Of-
fices. In addition it can be downloaded
free from the IRS website at www.irs.gov.

If you have questions or problems with
filling out the form, you can get free help
at your local Volunteer Income Tax As-
sistance (VITA) site or Low Income Tax-
payer Clinic (LITC). To find your local
VITA or LITC site call the IRS at 1-800-
829-1040. To find your local LITC on an
interactive map you can also visit the
IRS online at www.irs.gov/advocate/con-
tent/0,,id=151026,00.html

Audience Demands Holdover
Performances of "Grease"

Thursday, April 3, 2008-After eight performances, the
crowds continue to pack the theater at standing-room only
performances of Suwannee Valley Players' presentation of
Grease, written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, and spon-
sored by Drummond Community Bank.
"The response has been overwhelming and the audiences
love the performances," said the show's director Elizabeth
Phillips. She explained that because the show was sold out
at every performance since opening night, she decided to
request another four performances from Samuel French,
Inc., who holds the show's rights. "Local arts are a crucial
part of any thriving community, for both performers and
the viewers, as this show demonstrates," said Phillips. The
show has a cast of 26, ranging in age from 11 to adult, with
classic 1950s rock and roll music.

The dates for the additional performances are: April 4-6,
Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 PM, Sunday at 2:30 and
7:00 PM. Pre-sale ticket holders who were not able to see
the show during the original run may use the tickets at one
of these performances.
Regular ticket prices are $10.00 for adults, $8.00 for students,
and free admission to children six years of age and under if
sitting on a lap. NOTE: If you graduated high school dur-
ing the 1950s, bring a copy of your senior photo from your
yearbook for free admission! Shows are at the Chief The-
ater at 25 E. Park Avenue in Chiefland, Florida. For more
information, visit www.svplayers.com or call 352-493-ARTS.

To the People of Dixie County: i

You have all been very kind to my family for many years by allowing us to serve
in many public service positions since our county was created.

With my time as your property appraiser winding down, I would like to offer a
public endorsement of the candidacy of ROBBIE LEE for Dixie County Property
Appraiser.

Robbie has worked with me for ten years, and has become thoroughly familiar
with both the public service and the appraising sides of the office. While working --
for me he has earned appraisal designations from the International Association of
Appraising Officers and the Florida Department of Professional Regulation.
Robbie is well known and respected within the Property Appraisers Association of
Florida and the Department of Revenue, and is thoroughly familiar with their audit
process. The recently approved tax reform amendment and upcoming tax reform
proposal slated for the November ballot makes it even more important that your
next property appraiser have the knowledge, skills and ability to not only ' .'
implement the changes, but insure that the best interests of the taxpayers are . , i
looked after. I am certain he will continue the friendly and courteous service you i ('
have grown accustomed to over the years.

I have total confidence in Robbie, and ask that you join me in supporting him in
the coming elections.

Guess who Gue



turned 16?


WSW' . ..
Harry Runkis has been a professional
"Florida Wildlife Artist" for the past 18
years. Operating out of his wood shop in
the Old Town Hammock area, he turns
out hundreds of pieces of artwork
which he then ships all over the globe.
Harry worked in auto-body repair for
many years, but was forced to find other
means of supporting himself when the
caustic fumes from automotive paint
started taking a toll on his health. He
says he had started sculpting as a hobby
in his childhood, and after finding he
could no longer pursue his auto-body ca-
reer, took it to the next level by produc-
ing sculpture professionally
Many of "Chainsaw" Harry's beautiful-
ly rendered subjects are painted in bril-
liant color schemes.
"I draw a lot of inspiration for my col-
ors from my experience in auto-body,"
says Harry
When asked what his favorite thing to
sculpt is he replied, "I love carving peli-
cans. I used to go to Salt Creek restau-
rant and the fellow who ran the bait
shop would bring me sbme fish heads
and I would feed them. This one pelican
would stand still for a long time and let
me sketch him. I was almost finished


ss who?


with a sketch once, and he started to
move away. I said, 'Hey! You're not done
yet!' and he moved back into.the position
he was in until I finished and gave him
a fish head."
Harry is currently working on a proud
sergeant from the 53rd Regiment in the
civil war. The piece was commissioned
by a history professor to honor black sol-
diers who fought in the civil war. Mr.
Runkis began carving for the professor
about 15 years ago when he came into
Harry's shop looking for something
"unique" to give out as an award.

"He wanted an award that the recipient
would be proud to have, not just another
plaque."
A pelican was selected and numerous
other "pelican awards" have been given
out by the professor.
Unfortunately, we were unable to photo-
graph some of Mr. Runkis' most colorful
carvings, as he had just delivered his re-
cently completed sculptures to his cus-
tomers, including a piece that he
shipped to a private collector in London,
England. Persons interested in Harry's
carvings can see quite a few of them on-
line at his website chainsawharrycom.
