Panthers Bite the Bears

by John Kelley

I he Bears fell 0-2 as they took on the
Newberry Panthers at Newberry
last Friday night. The Panthers (2-0,
and have won the last two meetings with
the Bears) handed the Dixie team their sec-
ond loss to a large crowd of Panther and
Bear fans, with the final score Panthers 48,
Bears 14.

The Panthers won the toss, and elected to
receive the kickoff. The kick made by kick-
er Zachary Cassidy, was well placed deep in
Panther territory The Panther receiver re-
turned the opening kick 90 yards for the
first score in the game. The extra point at-
tempt was good and the Panthers took the
lead in the first minute of the game. The
Bears, lead by Kameron Keen, retaliated,
and in the next seven plays posted their
own touchdown. Keen hit Markell Harris
with a pass, and Harris took it into the end
Zone for six. Zack booted in the field goal,
j, and the Bears tied the score, all in the first
five minutes of play It looked as if this was
going to be a tit for tat game, but the Pan-
thers had other intentions. They continued
to push the Bears around eventually
outscoring the Dixie team 48 to 14.

S7:30pm on August

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


Why should we care
what Europe thinks?

Media liberals are all atwitter over the news
that countries in Europe and elsewhere prefer Sena-
tor Barack Obama over Senator John McCain for.
President of the United States.
In Russia, a government-sponsored poll (what
other kind would you expect to find there?) asked a
mere 1,600 resident Bolsheviks who they'd vote for if
they could vote in our presidential election. Most in-
dicated that they didn't care if the Abominable Snow-
man won our election, but 27 percent (432) preferred
Obama, to 16 percent (256) for McCain. That's in a
country with a population of 142 million. No mention
of what the margin for error might have been.
Russia's recent invasion of the Republic of
Georgia provides more than a subtle hint that
Vladimir Putin is gradually restoring his. country to
the status of the Soviet Union, the political entity
that Ronald Reagan called an "Evil Empire." And of
course, Prime Minister Putin is immensely popular
with his citizens. And certainly you don't think that
popularity polls in post-Soviet Russia are rigged; do
you? Or that citizens are hesitant to speak their
minds?
Next, we have France. The margin there was
Obama by 80 percent, the highest among the Euro-
peans polled. While the French government has mel-
lowed a bit here of late,.they certainly haven't shed
their characteristically condescending attitude to-
ward America and Americans. Their presidential
preferences have not matched our own in recent
years, so it should come as no surprise that this could
also turn out to be the case this year.
Still, the French poll is more likely than the
Russian to be on the level for the simple reason that
French citizens have the form of government they
want (socialism) and would like Americans to "see
the light" as they see it, or at least elect someone who
might.
A BBC/Globescan poll of 22 countries indicat-
ed that every, one of them preferred Obaina to Mc-
Cain in,our November election. Margins differed,
somewhat; in Kenya, it was 82 percent, while Obama
prevailed by a,modest 9 percent in India.
India has experienced a relatively recent con-
version to capitalism. It's citizens are' enterprising,
hard-working and they learn quickly. You may have
spoken to one when dialing an 800 'nuiber.to discuss
a problem with your computer. Most understand that
America inspired their emergence into a free enter-
prise culture, and those who have set up shop in this
country, have done so without demanding special
treatment from our government; but these were not
among those Polled regarding our upcoming election.
As for Kenya, that's Obama's family's turf, so
what would you expect? BBC/Globescan apparently
didn't bother checking out how he showed up in Ari-
zona or Alaska.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has
openly endorsed Obama, something British PM's are
not in the habit of doing. But this guy is not exactly
Tony Blair, let alone Margaret Thatcher.
0
Actually, none of this matters. Nobody in any
foreign country (unless it is a US citizen voting ab-
sentee) can vote in any election held within our bor-
ders. So why do they think they can do better than
we can at choosing our president?
Here's a thought: A lot of foreign countries
would prefer a weaker, more compliant America-at
least until they got in trouble and needed help. Notice
that none are turning down foreign aid, nor are they
dropping out of NATO.

SBeach Blanket Bingo Roulette


by Kathy McKinney


I don't know about you, but I had a great weekend.
Doug treated me, my daughter Casey, and Brandi to an
all-expenses paid weekend at a fancy beach resort and
spa in Atlantic Beach...a nice one, with doormen and
valet parking and hour-long hot-rock massages while
you're wrapped head to toe in chocolate-scented sea-
weed. (What? Your boss doesn't take you on weekend
trips? You should be working at the Advocate.) Any-
hoo, we walked on the beach and laid in the sun.. .well,
for a little while, because the sun is, you know, sort of
hot, so we hopped on the SunCruz boat and Doug and I,
played a little no limit .hold'em while the girls played
slots and boy-watched and a great time was had by all.
The hotel was packed with an entire college-full of
Texas hurricane Ike refugees.. .who
roamed the hallways at 4 am making
way too much noise. You

Doug's company has a plant in Texas,
and he called to find out howthey: We're bu
were holding on through the storm.
They seemed to be doing as well as them, c
could be expected, some friends lost ,
roofs and that sort of thing. While I sewage-t
:was waiting (like, forever!!) for the them.
girls to get beautified enough to go
somewhere, I'd turn on the news and
watch the devastation. It was a little,
surreal to be sitting there on the
fourth floor, looking out the window E
at kids flying kites on the beach in
the'sunshine while watching walls of
water batter the beachside places in
Texas.


I couldn't help but wonder: why do we.keep rebuilding,
homes and businesses in places that we know with
100 % certainty are going to be destroyed every few
decades, at the very least? Why did we, the American
taxpayer, pick up a big part of the bill to re-build New,
Orleans after Katrina? Why do local governments still
issue building permits for people to build homes on
the banks of the Mississippi River? Why is the num-
ber one insurer of high-risk homes in Florida...that's
right, you guessed it..the Floridian taxpayer?

Citizens' Property Insurance is the state-backed insur-
ance company that was supposed to be the insurance
company of last resort for those people with homes so
risky that no other insurance company would cover'
them, and to keep that insurance "affordable." It now
has $433 BILLION in property exposure, and is the
largest insurer in the state. Apparently, it's set up to
handle anything up to $7.8 billion dollars, in losses--
anything more than that and it'll have to issue bonds.

One cat-three hurricane coming through Miami and
guess who is going to eat that disaster? That's right,
you and me. What losses Citizen's Property Insurance
doesn't pick up, you'know FEMA will get stuck with:
and we, the American taxpayer will get the check.
Why? I don't have a condo on the water, do you? Why
should money get taken out of my hard-earned pay-


Our Springs,
Good Things
Congratulations to the Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District for the foresight to seize the opportunity
to acquire Otter Springs. Otter Springs is clearly one of
the finet springs on our beautiful Suwannee River.

The decision by the SRWMD to preserve Otter Springs,
fir everyone to enjoy is in everybody's best interest. In
addition, the bottling permit for 400,000 gallotks of wa-
ter per day will be shelved That should help with keep-
ing local wells in good shape and keep the Suwannee
River flowing during dry times, as it should.The price-
tag of $6.8 million is not pocket change, However, it is a
real value for a priceless natural asset to be preserved
for us all. When the subsidies paid to sugar producers,
who befoul the environment, is compared the Otter
Springs acquisition looks more and more like money
well spent.

We are blessed to live near the Suwannee River and its
abundant springs. Hats off to the SRWMD on this wise
move.
Respectfully,
Patrick Mehr


check to help Mr. Rich Snowbird when the next storm
blows through and rips his roof off? Did he invite me
to spend any weekends there? No, I don't think so.
Did he-invite you? I'm not surprised. And yet, we get
the bill so that he can rebuild his vacation home.
Over one quarter of all flood loss payouts go to only,
2% of the insured: homes that have made flood dam-
age claims more than twice in the last ten years. Does
that seem fair or right, to you?

It seems to me that the reasonable thing to do would
be to tell people: look, you want to live on or near the.
water, that's great. It's great for our coastal economy
and for tourism. (And heck, it's not like the local resi-
dents and fishermen can afford to live there anymore,
thanks to the price hikes and increased taxation you.
"investors" brought with you.)
You can charge outrageous rates
I'd be a fool not to ;for your hotel rooms, you can rent
live on the beach your beachfront condo for whatev-
live on the beach. er you want, or you can try your
ilding highways to luck with a miniature golf course.
We don't care. But...you're on your
auseways to them, own. We'll give you a building per-
e pmit, as long as you follow our envi-
reatment plants to ronmental regulations and build-
We're paying their ing codes, but if a storm comes, we
will not provide you with one red
(flood) insurance cent of taxpayers' money We will
t. r not rebuild your house, re-roof
to live there. your motel, or replace your giant
environmental Law Professor rotating gorilla headed eighteenth
Oliver Houck hole.


If you want or need insurance,
good luck. Maybe you'll find some
insurance company willing to take a risk for a high
premium payment. 'But the taxpayer will not subsidize
your lifestyle or business. We will not take money from
the paychecks of single moms, struggling students or
the elderly, living in modest inland homes to make
things more "affordable" for investors, speculators, or
the wealthy who can afford to lie large oni the coast.

If they want to rebuild the Big Easy back in that be-
low-sea level hole, well, that's a risk they take. The
people who buy homes there know what's
comihg...heck, everybody knows it's only a matter of
time until the next one. We should refuse to allow our
government to spend one more dime of our money to
help them to rebuild or to subsidize insurance for a
city living under a sentence of inevitable doom.

Disasters that reach further inland are. a bit different.
I can see the government helping to fund or make
available insurance in places where a natural disaster
is unlikely..maybe something like a 100-year flood. I
suspect, though, that insurance companies would be
and are willing to write policies in such areas. If the
"risk" is too much for a private company, who has as
its primary goal making a profit and staying solvent,
building in that location is probably not a good idea.
It's time 'for the state to give at least that much consid-
eration to preserving and being responsible for the
dollars that it wrests from its citizens by force.


Credentials?
I am a new resident in the Dixie County area, so for-
give me for my ignorance as to what is going on con-
cerning Ms. Swanson and the Humane Society take
over or her attempt to do so. I have yet to read in ei-
ther paper her credentials for:Wanting to do so. Does
she have her DVM (Doctor. of Veterinary Medicine)?

Has she ever worked, or have education in any capaci-
ty within the Humane Society anywhere that would
qualify her for such a responsibility? If she does not
have any credentials that would her for the positions
she is trying to obtain then why would she think the
County Commissioners would entrust her with such
a large budget to do so?

Even for someone such as myself, I find it a little
strange that she would not want to go through the
proper channels to
make this a smooth
process, for the good of
the community


I, for one, am going to
make sure that i am at
the next meeting
which will be held on
September 18, 2008 at
6:00 PM. to find out as
much as I can concern-
ing this issue.

Maybe I too qualify for
this position.

leave the grocery store. When shopping,
keep fresh produce separated from
household chemicals and raw meat,.-
poultry or seafood. Keep fresh produce
separate from raw meat, poultry and
seafood in the refrigerator and it is best
to use a different cutting board for meats
and vegetables to avoid contamination ,
COOK-It is important to use a food ther-
mometer to be sure food is cooked to the
proper temperatures. Cook roasts and
steaks to a minimum of 145 degrees,
poultry should have a minimum inter-
nal temperature .of 165 degrees. Cook
ground meat to a minimum of 160 de-
grees and lftovers and casseroles
should have an internal temperature of
165 degrees.
CHILL-Bacteria spread fastest at tem-
peratures between 40 degrees and 140 de-
grees so chilling food properly is an im-
portant food safety practice. Chill left-
overs within 2 hours and keep the fridge
at 40 degrees or lower. Refrigerate or
freeze meat, poultry, eggs and other per-
ishables as soon as possible after pur-
chase. Leftovers should be put in shal-,.'
low containers so the food Will chill
more quickly, preventing bacteria from
growing.
It is also important to never defrost food
at room temperature. vFood has to be
kept at a safe temperature during thaw-
ing. Consumers can defrost food three
ways: in the refrigerator, in cold water
'and in the microwave.;

PLAYERS OF TRE WEEK


Junior Travis Pierce, Number 8 is Hitman of the
Week, Junior Cody Spurlin, #63 is Defensive Player of
the Week, Senior Neno Aiken, #1 was Special Teams
Player and Junior Markell Harris, #3 is Offensive
Player of the Week.
Congratulations, Bears!


From BEARS, page 1
The Bears were down
three offensive linemen
with injuries, which con-
tributed to the Panthers
holding star Dixie Coun-
ty running back Rodney
Scott to under 100 yards
and no points. The only
other touchdown for the
Bears was made by
Michael West in a late
rally, with less than five
minutes to play. Keen
connected on a pass play
to West who took it six
yards for the six points.
Cassidy added the extra
point, and the Bears
closed out the game with
only fourteen points to
show.
Dixie County hosts the
Lafayette Hornets this
week. The Bears will be
looking to avenge their
loss last year to -a very
physical Mayo squad.
The Hornets will be
coming in the game with
a 2-0 record, beating
Baldwin last week in a
48-0 shut out. The Dixie
Countyteam will need
all of our support in this
battle, so come out,
watch the game, support
our boys, and beat Mayo.
GO BEARS!

made a
left turn into the drive-
way of a second Old
Town resident, crashing
into a mail box post. The
vehicle continued to-
ward the home sliding to
a stop just before crash-
ing into the home. The
deputy saw Reginald Mc-
Clain exit the from the
drivers seat of the vehi-
cle and flee on foot to-
ward the victim's resi-
dence. A second un-
known subject exited the
vehicle from the front
passengers' door and
fled on foot. McClain
forced entry into the vic-
tim's residence by ram-
ming the front door with
his shoulder. At this
point the deputy pur-
sued McClain into the
residence where he was
taken into custody.: Mc-
Clain did cause damage
to the front door of the
residence and broke sev-,

The Cross City Correc-

RE










No, I'm not talking about
the figures of Scandina-
vian lore, who lurked un-
der bridges. The trolls to
which I refer are the
dreaded internet troll.

An internet troll is a per-
son (presumably) who
tends to hang around in
forums or chat rooms, or
other places where people
gather communicate With
one another. The troll is-
n't interested in provid-
ing useful insights, or
anything else, for that
matter. No, they are there
to try to cause people to
become upset. They are
there to disrupt attempts
at intelligent dialogue.

To achieve this end, they
will use any number of
devious methods. Usually
this is accomplished by
posting a line or two of
text that is certain to
cause an angry response.
Say, by way of example,
you happen to be viewing
a forum that discusses
Macintosh computers,
and any virtues thereof.
A sure sign that a forum-
poster is trolling for an
adverse reaction (lulz- in
troll-speak) would be if
.their post looked some-
thing like this:,

"^&%$ Macintosh com-
puters!!!ll!!one!!ll I hate
Max tehy suxx0rz!"

Now,,as you would imag-
ine, some person in the
forum will undoubtedly
take offense to this. Even


Blood donor

Gainesville Ensign Ka-
malan Selvarajah was a
long-time blood donor,
but that changed Sept. 15,
2007. That was the day he
became a blood recipient,
as he was fighting for his
own life following a mo-
torcycle crash.
The crash oc-
curred on NW 43rd Street
as Selvarajah was avoid-
ing a drunk driver who'd
turned into his path. The
accident left him with a
severe head injury that
has also altered his Navy
career.path.
Selvarajah had

the Troll

someone who is rational
is likely to reply (some-
times at great length) an-
grily The poster, even
though they might agree
that everyone has a right
to speak their mind about
their software preference,
would mostly be taking
offense to the post's pres-
ence in a Pro-Mac forum.
I someone really wanted
to gripe about Macs, they
would go to a anti-Mac fo-
rum, and gripe about
them there.


This is not the goal of
the troll. The person who
replies to the troll's post
angrily has just lost the
game. They fed'the troll.
Successful troll was suc-
cessful. Heck, the troll
may be using a Mac. The
point wasn't to register a
legitimate complaint, is
was to cause discord.
Keep in mind, this same
tactic works in many dif-
ferent kinds of forum,

Selvarajah said.
But he also always had a
dream to fly So after
graduating from Navy

muck will see through
the troll and remove the
post. Generally this is fol-
lowed by banning the
trolling user from the fo-
rum.

Another trick the suc-
cessful troll has up his
sleeve will undoubtedly
be found on sites that al-
low users to post images.
A troll will disregard all
rules pertaining to im-
ages allowed to be posted.
A common troll-attack is
to post an extraordinarily
revolting photograph/im-
age on a site that quite
clearly wouldn't appreci-
ate it's "shock value".
This seems to be one of
the most successful
trolling attacks, leaving,
people disgusted,
whether,they fed the troll
a response or not. Feed-
ing the troll, while allow-
ing one to vent their dis-
gust, will only encourage
the troll to post more un-
savory content.

Combating the dreaded
troll is a very easy thing
to do.

Step l: Ignore them.
Trolls who aren't fed reg-
ularly will invariably
wander off into cyber-
space to find better
trolling grounds.

Step 2: Whine about..,.
err, I mean, report it to
the site's admin. They
will usually give the troll
the boot.

For those of you who are
trolls, there is help. An
online support group
called ForumWarz (don't
go there, I mean, really It
full of trolls and worse)
is available to allow those
you sick-o trolls to go
trolling in a virtual envi-
ronment and upset fake
people.


required two units of
blood to survive the
crash. He has spent the
past year on temporary
assignment with the
Navy ROTC on the UF
campus as he's recovered.
The crash did leave him
with double vision, how-
ever, so his hopes of fly-
ing are gone. Instead he
is now preparing for a
new career with the Med-
ical Service Corps as a
health care administra-
tor.
He says not get-
ting to fly was a major
disappointment, but he
feels it would be destruc-
tive to dwell on the nega-
tive; instead he's focused
on the positive.
"I'm very lucky to
be alive, I'm lucky to
have lots of options," he
said. .
While he was liv-
ing in Gainesville, Sel-
varajah was a regular
blood donor with Life-
South Community Blood
Centers. But by receiving
blood last September,
he's been deferred from
donating for an entire
year. Now that the year is
up, this Wednesday, Sept.
17 at 2 p.m. at the Life-
South donor center at
4039 W. Newberry Road,
he will.climb back into
the donor chair for the
first time since his acci-
dent, and he's looking
forward to it.

What is a sexual predator?
There is a difference between sexual offenders and sexual preda-
tors. The Advocate does rot publish flyers of offenders; but we will
print, from time to time, as a public service to the children and par-
ents of Dixie County the official flyers of people judged by a court
to be a "Predator." There are two ways of becoming a sexual,
predator: One way is.to commit (on or after 10/1/93) one of the sev-
eral "one is enough" sexual predator offenses. The other way is to
commit a "second offense" sexual predator offense...committing a
listed sexual offense after having been previously been found to
have committed certain other listed sexual offenses.

Stuff to Do


Give blood, save lives
at Dixie County
Rotary Community
drive

Cross City, Fla. Every
year, 4.5 million lives are
saved in the US and
Canada thanks to blood
transfusions. The group
of patients whose lives
are saved stretch across
all demographics, races
and ethnicities. Just
three teaspoons of blood
can save a baby's life, so
imagine the impact that
your pint of donated
blood can have. LifeSouth
and the community of
Dixie County invite you
to be a part of saving
lives when they team up
to host a blood drive on
Wednesday, September 24
between the hours of 9
a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Look
for the bloodmobile in,
the parking lot of Food-
land, in Evan's Square.


"More than 38,000 dona-
tions are needed each
day," said Joyce Higgins,
donor recruiter for Life-
South. "What are you do-
ing tomorrow? We hope
everyone will think about
saving lives and donate
blood at the community
drive." The blood drive
is sponsored by the Dixie
County Rotary.
All who donate will re-
ceive a recognition item
and a complimentary
cholesterol screening.
Donors must be at least
16 years old, weigh 110
pounds or more, and -
have photo I.D. Donors
who are 16 years of age
must have signed
parental consent. For
more information about
becoming a donor or
about blood drives in
your area, call LifeSouth
at (888) 795-2707 or visit
www.lifesouth.org.

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS

Springhouse members were all buzzing last Tuesday at
their monthly meeting with 35 day members and 26
night members attending the meetings. The day mem-
bers had several completed DrQam Catchers completed
and ready for show and tell from the workshop on Au-
gust 26. Faith Stanton is the organizer of the work-
shops for the day group and she has been doing a great
job in arranging new and exciting Workshops each
month. Francis Williams had a finished Sudoka wall
quilt finished and remarked that her husband even got
involved in trying to solve the puzzle. The night mem-
bers had a workshop conducted by Shirley Twiddy in
making flying geese. The meetings were enjoyed by all
in attendance.

Stephanie Metts presented a short program on Molas,
and had several interesting pieces she acquired in trav-
els to Indian in South America.

Most of the business was pushed aside last week as the
group joined together to fellowship, share wonderful
home made goodies followed by a real live auction con-
ducted by Mandy Ramaswami. The items auctioned
were cast of items from members who felt they no
longer wanted or needed them. It was a lot of fun to
see friends bidding against each other for some special
item. The old saying that someone's trash is someone's
else's treasure was very evident during the day meeting
last week.

The workshop for September will be presented by Va-
lerie Malkenas, a retired music teach and quilt teacher
from Gainesville, on reverse applique.
For additional information, contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.


Garber completes

Navy Training

Navy Seaman Scott A. Garber, son of Jennifer L.
Howard of Cumming, Ga. and Scott A. Garber, Sr of
Fanning Springs, Fla., recently completed U.S. Navy
basic training at Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Garber completed a
variety of training which included classroom study
and practical instruction on naval customs,
first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety An emphasis was also.
placed on physical fitness.

The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations".
This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence
they need to succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is
designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of
sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in
each recruit through the practical application of ba-
sic Navy skills and the core values of Honor,
Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly "Navy" fla-
vor was designed to take into account What it means
to be a Sailor.

Garber is a 2008 graduate of Forsyth Central High
School of Cumming, Ga.

Military training
prompts change to
Camp
Blanding's hunts

This fall's first archery hunt
on Camp Blanding has been
rescheduled and the general
gun still and the archery-
only area hunts, have been
reduced in length.
Military training in the
hunting area prompted mov-
ing the first archery hunt to
Sept. 25-28. The original
dates were Sept. 23-25.
For Sept. 25-28, both still
hunt areas 1 and 2 will be
open, but there will be some
parts of still hunt area 2
closed. There were 350 per-
mits issued for the first
archery hunt on Camp


Blanding, and the FWC is
making every effort to alert
the hunters to the change.
Hunters with questions, can
call the FWC regional office
in Lake City at 386-758-0525.
"The second archery hunt,
scheduled for Sept. 30 Oct.
2, has not changed. The muz-
zleloading gun hunts, sched-.
uled for Oct. 7-9 and Oct. 14-
16, have not changed either,"
Garrison said.
The supervised youth hunts
from Oct. 11-12 and Oct. 25-
26 remain the same, as do
the general gun dog hunts,
scheduled from Nov. 22-30
and Dec. 20-28.
"Two other hunts on the
area have been reduced in
length," Garrison said. "The
general gun still hunt sea-


son will now be from Nov.
22-30 and from Dec. 20 to
Jan. 1 on both still hunt ar-
eas 1 and 2." The area will
be closed Dec. 1-19 and Jan.
2-18. The archery-only area
hunts have also changed to
Nov. 22-30 and Dec. 20 Jan.
1 on archery zones A, B, C,
D, E andE. The area will be
closed Dec. 1-19 and Jan. 2-
18.

'"Again, the reason for the
change to these two hunts
was scheduled military
training," Garrison said.
"All the dates are subject to
change, so we suggest
hunters call the Camp
Blanding hunter hotline for
up-to-the-minute informa-
tion." The hotline number is
904-291-9912.

America's Christian
Roots

52 of the 55 signers of
America's Declaration of In-
dependence were orthodox,
deeply committed Qhris-
tians. The other three all be-
lieved in the Bible as the di-
vine truth, the God of Scrip-
ture, and His personal inter-
vention.

It is the same Congress that
formed the American Bible
Society Immediately after
creating the Declaration of
Independence, the Continen-
tal Congress voted to pur-
chase and import 20,000
copies of Scripture for the
people of this nation.

Patrick Henry, who is called
the firebrand of the Ameri-
can Revolution, is still re-
membered for his words,
"Give me liberty or give me
death." But in current text-
books the context of these
words is deleted. Here is
what he, actually said: "An
appeal to arms and the God
of hosts is all that is.left us.
But we shall not fight our
battle alone. There is a just
God that presides over the
destinies of nations. The
battle sir, is not to the
strong alone. Is life so dear
or peace so sweet as to be
purchased at the price of
chains and slavery? Forbid
it almighty God. I know not
what course others may
take, but as for me, give me
liberty, or give me death." '

These sentences have been
erased from our textbooks.
Was Patrick Henry a Christ-
ian? The following year,
1776, he wrote this "It can-,
not be emphasized too
strongly or too often that
this great Nation was found-
ed not by religionists, but by
, Christians; not on religions,
but on the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. For that reason
alone, people of other faiths
have been afforded freedom
of worship here."

Consider these words that '
Thomas Jefferson wrote on
the front of his well-worn
Bible: "I am a real Christ-

ian, that is to say, a disciple
of the doctrines of Jesus. I

rallied to the unity of our
Creator." He was also the
chairman of the American
Bible Society, which he con-
sidered his highest and
most important role.

On July 4, 1821,.President
Adams said, "The highest
glory of the American Revo-
lution was this: it connected
in one indissoluble bond the
principles of civil govern-
ment with the principles of
Christianity"

Calvin Coolidge, our 30th
President of the United
States reaffirmed this truth
when he wrote, "The founda-
tions of our society and our
government rest so much on
the teachings of the Bible
that it would be difficult to
support them if faith in,
these teachings would cease
to be practically -universal
in our country"

James Madison, the prima-
ry author of the Constitu-
tion of the United States,
said this: '"We have staked
the whole future of our new
nation not upon the power
of government; far from it.
We have staked the future of
all our political constitu-
tions upon the capacity of
each of ourselves to govern
ourselves according to the
moral.principles of the Ten
Commandments."

Today, we are asking God to
bless America. But, how can
He bless a Nation that has
departed so far from Him?
Prior to September 11, 2001,
He was not welcome in
America. Most of what you
read in this article has been
erased from our textbooks.
Revisionists have rewritten
history to remove the truth
about our country's Christ-
ian roots. If .you wish to
make a statement, send this
to everyone you can. They
should know, too.

"This is another example
of the tremendous sup-

director of

"We have been

tients and fami-
lies in the tri-

there have generously

beginning."


Attorney General Bill
McCollum issued a se-
ries of subpoenas on Sun-
day to four companies
seeking information
about reported increases
in the price of gasoline
throughout the state. The
subpoenas request docu-
mentation from the com-
panies detailing the pur-
chase prices the compa-
nies paid for gasoline
sold at their Florida re-
tail stores. The Attorney
General issued the sub-
poenas after receiving
more than 350 complaints
about gasoline price
gouging over a four-day
period.

"Price gouging is strictly,
prohibited in Florida dur-
ing a declared state of
emergency and my inves-
tigators have been work-
ing throughout the week-
end to determine whether
Floridians are being tak-
en advantage of," said At-
torney General McCol-
lum. "Passing along a jus-
tifiable increase in cost to
consumers is legal, but
we will not tolerate goug-
ing for greed.",

The subpoenas were is-
sued to corporate offices
of Flying J, Dodge's Gas
Stores, Valero and Pilot
Travel Centers. Con-


summer complaints against
these three groups of sta-
tions have been particu-
larly high. in several ar-
eas of the state, including
the Tampa region, South
Florida, Central Florida,
and Tallahassee and the
Panhandle. Service of the
subpoenaswill begin to-
morirow~and the Attorney
General has requested
the sought-after materials
be provided within a
week.

The Attorney General's
Office began receiving an
increased volume of
price gouging complaints
on Thursday, September
11. Invest igators with the
Attorney General's Eco-
nomic Crimes Division
have been reviewing each
complaint and have been
working to make contact
with the gas station own-
ers or.corporate head-
quarters to obtaii docu-
mfientation related to pric-
ing of the gasoline. As of
11:00 a.m. today, the At-
torney General's Office
had received 317 com-
plaints about gasoline
price gouging related to
Hurricane Ike. ,

According to Florida law,,
price gouging on essen-
tial commodities. includ-
ing gasoline, is prohibit-


ed during a declared state
of emergency The state
of emergency for Hurri-
cane Ike was issued by
Governor Crist on Sep-
tember 5, 2008. Price
gouging is an unjustified
increase in the price of a
commodity compared to.
the average price for the


30 days prior to the decla-
ration of .a state of emer-
gency The statute does
-permit businesses to pass
along cost increases to
consumers if those in-
creases can be justified
due to higher purchase
prices, etc.

The Attorney General en-
couraged Floridians to
continue to report price
gouging to his Price
Gouging Hotline at 1-866-
9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
7226).
