The Hereford Bull (Thunnder) was se-
lected as the Grand Champion in the
Hereford Bull Show on Thursday, Nov
13. at the 2008 North Florida Fair in Tal-
lahassee. The bull is owned by Arialle
Spencer of Spencer Farm in Old Town.
The breeder was Ray Hodges of Ever-
green Farm in Old Town.


On the morning of Mon-
day, November 17 2008, a
semi-truck made a right,
hand tiiur'frri highway
351 in Cross City onto
214th Ave. (4ext to June
Woods' Florist). The dri-
ver failed to turn wide
enough and dragged the
passenger side of his,
trailer along a power
pole; breaking the pole
nearly in two. The driver
continued on his way,
traveling through a .
neighborhood and head-
ing North on 351. Some-,
locals who had witnessed
the damage ran the truck
down and signaled him to
stop until law enforce-
ment arrived. According
to the driver, he didn't no-


tice that he'd hit the pole.
The semi's trailer was
hardly scratched.

The section of 351 in
front of the Dixie County
Courthouse was closed
while repairs were made
to pole, which was bro-
ken severely and was at
risk of falling onto the
street. The highly corn-
mercial corner was in
chaos. The Property Ap-
praiser's office called it a
day and went home due
to lack of power.

Workers from Progress
Energy arrived, and after
several hours replaced
the pole. allowing traffic
to resume its normal
flow.

Shired Island


Roadwork


by Eli Loy
Work has begun in prepara-
tion for the repaving of
Shired Island road. While the
actualresurfacing hasn't yet
started, crews are excavating
areas along the roadway and
installing culverts to allow
for drainage in areas where
the road is in danger of be-
ing washed out.
I went out to get some pho-
tographs of the work being
done and decided to have a
gander at the end of the
road. When I arrived, I found
two gentlemen with quite an
array of electrical devices
set up at the end, of the
Shired Island road. Anten-
nas, hand-held'radios, and
what appeared to be an oscil-
loscope covered a portable
table. When asked what they
were up to, the replied, "Test-
ing."
My curiosity was piqued. I
inquired as to the nature of
their tests, was it some wa-
ter-quality analysis they
were conducting? Perhaps
monitoring game using some
sort of new radio frequency
device?


"We're testing communica-
tions systems." One of them
told me, "We're doing this for
'The Government,"' the larg-
er fellow replied, "We really
can't talk about it."
Well, to make a short story
shorter, they seemed disin-
clined to have themselves or
their apparatus pho-
tographed, and didn't volun-
teer any particular agency of
"The Government" that they
were doing this testing for.
Having learned that it is
sometimes best not to ques-
tion mysterious gentlemen
who you happen upon in the
midst of nowhere, I bid them
good day, and went on my
way.
While having no actual idea
as to what manner of data
the men may have been col-
lecting, The abundance of ra-
dios, antenna, and the pres-
ence of the apparent oscillo-
scope device, makes it look
like they were, in fact, trying
out some new type of two-
way radio or possibly tuning
the frequencies, antennas,
and/or the power output.
Perhaps we'll never know.

2008 Dixie County Advocate


well, wny not
blame Sarah?


We don't hear all that much about John McCain these days,
which is understandable. After all, he lost the election. Not
surprising, really. Barack Obamaout-spent him 3 or 4 to one,
had the mainstream media for a cheering section free of
charge, and was able to get anyone who voiced a legitimate
question about his character, qualifications or associates
branded a "racist." "

Nonetheless, this leaves the Republican party needing a
scapegoat. After all, somebody needs" to shoulder the blame
for losing a presidential election in economic circumstances
somewhat similar to those faced by Herbert Hoover in 1932.
Poor old Herb carried that albatross for the rest of his life,
and it didn't seem quite right to inflict it on John McCain
who, after all, was in no significant way responsible for our
current economic problems.

All right, but the GOP insiders need to have somebody to
blame for losing the election. Well, how about Alaska Gover-
nor Sarah Palin, McCain's choice for vice-president? And
never 'mind that, in the period between Palin's nomination
and the full impact of the economic meltdown, the GOP tick-
et gained a modest lead in the polls.

But this goes far beyond any supposed effort to protect Mc-
Cain for blame over losing the election. The worst thing
John McCain did in his own behalf was to be too nice a guy
in a contest where nice guys finish last, and I doubt that the,
party machinery would have gone to any great lengths to up-
hold his image. In any event, there was an easier way to save
their own gluteal extremities% or so it appeared.

Why not put the blame on Sarah Palin? She was a first term
governor from a small (in terms of population) state, active
in the effort to remove long time Republican senator Ted
Stevens from office for malfeasance of which has been con-
victed, she definitely did not display the instincts of a belt-
way insider.

And then we have the "conservative" pundits, who were
hammering the McCain campaign long before Sarah even
got mentioned as a possible VP nominee. Rush Limbaugh
kept it up well after it became obvious that McCain had the
nomination locked up and what he did was helping Obama.
Ann Coulter said she'd support Hillary Clinton over Mc-
Cain, though she obviously did not get that opportunity
Both eventually got on board With the GOP ticket, but a lot
of the damage was already done.

Kathleen Parker continues to write for TownHall.com,
though I sometimes wonder why MoveOn.org hasn't made
her a better offer. She persists in belittling both John Mc-
Cain and Sarah Palin, supposedly for the reasons other than
those the mainstream media were touting; yet sounding
much the same. In any case, she certainly had the same ef-
fect, however limited, on the election.

What really has the looney left and the entrenched GOP with
their undies in a wad is the slogan, "Palin, 2012." Sarah
heard a lot of it upon returning to her home state, but it has
reverberated well beyond Alaska. John McCain was called a
"maverick" for occasionally deviating from the GOP party
line, but Sarah Palin was the true maverick for bucking the,
system that holds the whole self-serving two party system to-
gether.

Will Sarah throw her hat in the ring for the 2012 Republican
nomination? It's far too early to tell. But this is for sure: The
people who are comfortable with the way things are don't
want to see any more of her; but a lot of folks who, like Joe
the plumber, will be ready for real changes in government in
another four years, might welcome Sarah Palin to the 2012
presidential race.

When I was a kid, the game "Mouse Trap" was a big seller.
It looked like big fun on the box...but did you ever try to put
the thing together? You had to have a degree in advanced
particle physics to get that stupid little red plastic cage
thing to balance on the stick just right so that it would pop
down at the right time and catch the mouse. More often
than not, your annoying little sister or the dog or something
would come running through the room and jostle the game
and everything would come tumbling down, willy-nilly,
about halfway through the game. All of those parts, all of
the time you spent putting it together, just
seemed wasted. Oh, heck, you'd say, let's go' "The nat
play something else. Twister. Or Clue. Some-
thing less complicated. O

That's sort of how I feel about this whole llbert
bailout situation. It's just so complicated, I
don't think anybody, and I mean anybody has g
a real good grip on how to keep the little red
plastic economic cage from crashing to the
gameboard and sending everybody off to play
freeze tag.

I think I've written before that I'ma big fan
of letting the business chips fall where they
may; the big companies that made bad business decisions
need to suffer for it. I don't like it that the little guys who
work for them will have to suffer too, but like it or not, that's
how this particular game is played. Bailing out the banks
was bad enough, but I could see the reasoning behind it, and
the need to keep credit available to everyone.

Like all government "help," though, this bailout thing has
spiralled out of control. Now the automakers are in line
with their hands out. And even American Express, who is
now claiming that it is a bank, is saying deserves a few bil-
lion of Uncle Sam's goodie stash. American Express! Oh,
puh-14eze!! ,If American Express went under, who would suf-
fer? Other than the people who work for them, nobody We
would all soldier along, and hope that they forget about that
$400 we owe them. I think that's the only reason I liked the
movie "Fight Club" at all...it was an undeniable pleasure
watching the Mastercard and Visa buildings go *boom* at
the end.

Nobody likes the credit card companies, and they're as re-
sponsible as anyone for the mess that the world finds itself
in right now. They've marketed an "I want it now, I deserve
it, and I'll pay or it later" mentality to us and to our kids.
,boes anyone think that 'we6 should have money taken out of
pur paychecks to help Mastercard keep on marketing high-
Interest debt to kids just out of high school? I don't think
so. If they're losing money, they need to re-think their busi-
ness methods.


Have you seen a baby

manatee?

On Saturday November 1, 2008.. .early morning about
7:30am 8:00am ish, a large Banana Yellow "Cigar" boat
with very large black motor left Joe Anderson Boat Ramp
at Hwy 19 and Suwannee River, leaving dock area he no-
ticed the 12 manatees that I had been following down river
since before sunrise and he applied full power...taking dead
aim, running directly through the 12 manatee herd and
missing me by a one foot as I tried to cross the "T" in order
to cut him off.

It was too foggy and I was too low in the water to photo-
graph his actions or boat number. I am told by locals he is
a regular weekend partier at the ramp. Now I am a regular
watcher of the ramp on weekend mornings..

Of the 12 manatee herd that I was following, two cows were
nursing new calves. My estimate; the caves were born
within last 12 days of that Saturday The herd also had two
juvenile nursing calves, estimated 5-8 months old. He inten-
tionally ran directly ran over one nursing cow and her calf.
I estimated the calf about 6 months old with color of the
winter algae that forms on the animals in saltwater.

On Saturday after the cow did not surface for air after 45
minutes, I called Susan Butler, USGS to insure I was follow-
ing procedure. Sally Lieb, MSSP manager was informed of
my concern for the possibility of a struck cow, which she
did not seem to take my report seriously in anyway or form
and then I reported to the FWC Hotline number.

Two hours later 'a concerned biologist from the FWC re-
turned my call and discussed the event. Also I spoke with
Susan Butler, USGS again and both agreed since the calf
was occasionally seen that it would be best to wait until
Sunday afternoon to see if the injured cow returned for her
calf.

By Saturday afternoon all but one nursing cowwas settled
in Fanning Springs, seems like several of the other nursing
cows "adopted" the lone calf and allowed it to nurse. I
stayed on the river looking for signs of the cow until sun-
set.

Sunday afternoon, near Old Pine Landing, suddenly a large
"lump" emerged up and out of the water, expelled a huge
amount of air and sank below the surface before I could
identify it. I could only assume that it was the cow from
Saturday's collision and it was killed, then bloated and
floated until the internal air pressure was released.

I floated slowly down the river until sunset finding no sign
of the carcass.

The "orphaned" calf was ok in Fanning Springs with 3 oth-
er calves; two infants and one juvenile. They are there
mostly in the early morning and late evenings.

If you have seen the calf or the "cigar boat," please contact
Stan Meeks with the Suwannee Riverkeepers.

I hold the auto industry to the same standard.: Did you
know that an .American auto worker makes over $70 an
hour? Labor unions have their hands around the throat of
the auto industry. Bankruptcy, as ugly as the word sounds,
would stop that and allow the auto companies to remind
those $70 an hour robot-watchers that the next assembly line
in their future might be putting Big Macs together for mini-
mum wage. Sure, people would lose their jobs, but when
unions have been allowed to make an entire industry non-
competitive, the workers can hardly scream when their jobs
get shipped to places where companies can stay afloat. The
casino industry employs more people than
ral promgrs the atto industry..did you know that?
Last week, the Sands in Las VegAs Went
things Is for belly-up, and the industry has had the
worst year in ages. Nobody in Washing-
to yield and ton is saying that we have to bail out the
gambling industry because it's too big to
government to fail.
ain ground." When something like this is confusing my
tiny little brain, I think it's helpful just to
1Tlems l u N take it down to the most simple principles.
The companies don't have enough money
They spent money they didn't have. They
borrowed too much and they can't pay it
back. If it were one of us, the government would sigh and
say that we should probably just adjust our lifestyle to our
new circumstances. If feeling particularly generous, they
might offer us a job-retraining program or maybe some nice
debt counselling. So, I think that's what we, the taxpayers,
should offer the banks, automakers and anybody else in the
handout line. Maybe some niice low-interest loans to help
them re-tool their factories to make something actually prof-
itable, legal relief to get them out of their union contracts,
and some serious lessons on reasonable executive compen-
sation and the evils of debt. (And send 'em out the door,
wishing them the best of luck.)

To create an unlimited government goodie chest for big in-.
dustry to dip into whenever they're feeling peckish is more
than foolish. This is not the time to add fuel to an already
growing welfare state. The economy is bad; okay, we can
deal with that without becoming Europe, where selling ugly
vegetables was, until last week, illegal. The way to dig our-
selves out of this mess is the hard work, limited spending
and self reliance that piade us great. Sitting on the floor,
crying and waiting on big daddy government to come put
the game pieces back on the board has never worked, and it
won't work now. We have to put away the complicated
games that don't work, and go back to simple fundamentals i

Monopoly, anybody?

P.S. Park Place is mine. Oh, and I get to be the top hat.


Veteran's Day

Do you know what Veterans' Day is? Do you know
any veterans? What war did they serve in? Where is
Europe? Where is Vietnam? Where is South Korea?
What country borders it? What country did we fight
against il the Pacific during World War IM?

I attended the Veterans' Day celebration on Novem-
ber 11th. Where were the students? Do they realize
what Veteran's Day means to them? do they realize
that the reason they can go to school, have a car, play
video games or be on the internet or go tot he movies
is because of the veterans?

Who was Hitler? I bet some of my former students
can tell you Hitler was an elected to office by the Ger-
mans, but immediately became a tyrant. He mur-
dered people who did not think as he did. He hated
the Jews. Eventually the Allies invaded europe on
June 6, 1944, landing at Normandy Incidentally,
where is Normandy?

Do the students know this history? History is not
boring, it should be taught!

Who is your state representative? Who is your state
Senator? Who is the governor of Florida? What is a
bill? Who is Congress? What is the President's role
in leading our nation?

Yes, history is real. War is real.

On Veteran's Day, students, parents, teachers, and
government officials should pay tribute to these men
and women who have sacrificed their lives and fami-
lies so we, who are free, can enjoy freedom as we
know it.

with her lucky charm Sam and camera man Phillip. What a beauty!
Look at that spread!
While Debbie sure shooter adds another to her trophy case. Look at
those kickers! This majestic 13 point nontypical buck certainly took
her breath away.
Both bucks were taken with 45 caliber CVA Muzzleloaders.

In Memory

joLea 'Michele 'Byrd
10-21-06 ~ 11-22-07
It has been a year since we last saw your beautiful faces and we all still long to see
them again. Our hearts ache for you every day, and our tears flow more and more
the longer you are gone. There is a void in our lives that time nor anyone else can
fill.
From the moment you both came into our lives we knew a beauty that only the
two of you had. We were blessed to have had you in our lives, and heartbroken when
y'all were taken from us.
Time has not healed our hearts or stopped the sleepless nights. It has made us real-
ize that broken hearts such as this is a breath taking pain that you never get,over.
Every day is a struggle to get out of bed, we force ourselves and somehow manage to
make it through the day. Then the night comes and we are left again by ourselves
with our thoughts and tears. We lost something precious and can't make sense of it.
Megan sleeps with the picture of Ash and her on her other pillow,.and I sleep with
her jacket she wore that, day of the accident. Our lives will never be the same again,
but are forever changed by the love they gave us. We will carry you in our hearts un-
til we meet again.
Missing and loving you both,
Mom, Tony, Megan, B1-eann, Jason, and family

during that time.

A special thanks to everyone who helped with the

You are and have been such a blessing.

Badcock sponsors an easy way to

raise money for Haven Hospice

(CHIEFLAND, Fla.)-For the third consecutive year,
Badcock Home Furniture & More of Chiefland will
sponsor its annual benefit for Haven Hospice-a holi-
day drawing for a large-screen high-definition TV
Last year's drawing raised $5,653 for the organization,
which cared for Badcock Owner Carol Tew's hus-
band, Lamar. "It's a good fundraiser and so easy," Tew
said. "All you have to do is mention Haven Hospice
and people want to support it."

Tickets for a chance to win are $5 each and can be
purchased Fri., Nov. 28 through Thurs., Dec. 18 at the
Badcock store, Hwy 19 North in Chiefland. The draw-
ing will be held Dec. 18.

Lamar Tew didn't require a hospital bed until the day
before he died of cancer at the age of 63. "I made him
walk; it kept him feeling good," said his widow, who
remains amazed that Lamar actually went fishing
about two months before their last day together. "It
was wonderful he did so well," she added. Even before
he passed, the couple talked about doing something
for Haven Hospice, whose constant support "took
some of the sting out of" a challenging situation. '"All
you have to do is pick up the phone and call Haven,
which made it so much easier for the whole family,"
said Tew. "They take care of everything for you."

For tickets or more information, call Badcock at (352)
493-4847, o r contact Kathleen Bogolea, Haven Hospice
associate director of development at (352) 271-4665.'
All proceeds will benefit Haven Hospice in the Tri-
Counties area. The winner need not be present to
win.

Changes to.

hunting quota

system being

recommended

Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) staff will pre-
sent draft recommenda-
tions for improving to
the Wildlife Management
Area Quota Hunt Permit
Program at the Commis-
sion's next meeting, Dec.
3 in Key West.

These proposed rule
changes address several
issues, including permit
transferability, guest per-'
mits and other changes
to the current program.
If approved in concept,
rules will be considered
for final adoption at the
Commission's February
meeting in Destin and
would become effective
for the 2009-10 hunting
season.

For more than a year, a
Quota Hunt Stakeholders
Working Group, consist-
ing of FWC staff and
members of the hunting


public, met to review the
current quota permit sys-
tem. Public meetings
also were held through-
out the state and much
input was received on
how to make the quota
permit system better.

Results of the working
group's findings and rec-'
ommendations can be
viewed at www.consen-
sus.fsu.edu/FWC/quo-
tahunt.html.

The working group be-
lieves changes are need-
ed to the quota permit
system that can have a
positive effect on hunter
recruitment and reten-
tion and will distribute,
public hunting opportu-
nities more fairly FWC
staff considered the
working group's recom-
mendations and are pre-
senting proposed rule
changes to the Commis-
sion that include many of
these recommendations.

A complete summary of
the proposed rule
changes and an online
comment form are avail-,
able at MyFWC.com Con-
tact/Contact_Rules_in-
tro.htm.

Blues

Boca Grande, Fla. Nov. 19,
2008 Although Americans
are cutting back, on holiday
gift buying this year fami-
-, -lies can still find ways to
make this a special Christ-
mas. A new survey commis-
sioned by Next. Chapter
Press found that while 48
percent of Americans say
they will be spending less on
holiday gifts this year, 84
percent of -people said their
favorite gift was not some-
thing from their wish list,
but instead an experience
that brought the family to-
gether or a thoughtful, per-
sonal gift they never would
have thought of themselves.

"While many families are
planning to spend less mon-
ey during the economic
downturn, that doesn't
mean this Christmas has to
be less special," said Jen-
nifer Liu Bryan, co-author
of Cole Family Christmas, a
new book from Next Chapter
Press. "History'shows us
that American families bond
during tough economic
times, and this year will be
no different. The gifts peo-
ple most enjoy are spending
time together, creating tradi-
tions and sharing memo-
rable experiences."
The survey asked the follow-
ing questions:
Considering the current
economy and your own per-
sonal financial situation, do
you plan on spending more,
about the same or less on
Christmas gifts this year
than you would normally
spend?


This Holiday Season join others in the community

who are giving a loved one a beautiful Smile!
Listen to what your friends are saying...
"Giving Mary a beautiful smile was the best investment we could have made
in her future success" Jennifer Smith
"Dr. Bill's friendly staff worked with us to come up with a payment plan to
make Bobby's braces affordable" John Walker
"This is a gift we can give our grandson what will never wear out"
Miriam Watson
"Jane is so much more self confident now that she has straight, beautiful
teeth!" -Kelly Andrews
We have expanded our hours so everyone can get their braces on before Christmas!

"Giving the gift of reading
aloud as a family will not
only deepen the bond during
the holidays, but studies
show it will also improve

Now that is a gift that will
last a lifetime!" said Bryan,

Bacteria are microscop-
ic organisms. Your body
has an abundance of bac-
teria swirling through it
at all times. Many of
these tiny organisms are
helpful, or even indispen-
sible. Others, however,
are not. Bacteria can eas-
ily enter your body
through various means,
causing pain, inflamma-
tion, disease, or in ex-
treme cases, death. An-
tibiotics are routinely ad-,
ministered to combat bac-
terial infections. Let's
learn how one particular
antibiotic, Penicillin,
works.

Penicillin is produced-
by the fungus Penicillium,
when its growth is inhib-
ited by stress. Through
means that are complicat-
ed beyond my explaining
(lets call it magic) the
Penicillin is harvested
and stored until it is ad-
ministered. Once in your
bloodstream, Penicillin's
P-lactam binds to the en-
zyme that links the pepti-
doglycan molecules in
*bacteria. In layman's
terms it causes the bacte-
ria's cell wall (think skin)
to weaken. This causes
the bacteria to hemmor-
age (explode) and die.
Your body then cleans up
'the mess .

This is basically the way
most modern antiboitics

acteriophages


work. The problem is
this: due to people failing
to take their antibiotics
as instructed by their
physician,.physicians
misprescribing antibi-
otics, people self medical
ing, and various other
reasons, strains of bacte-
ria are merely weakened
by the antibiotic. they
then grow strong again,
and have mutated to be
resistant to that antibiot-
ic from then on. When
one strain of bacteria is
unsuccessfully treated
with every antibiotic
known to man, it be-
comes, basically, an in-
vincible super-bacteria.
We already have one of
these, MRSA (Multiple-
Resistant staphylococcus
aureus). In theory; it is
only a matter of time be-
fore all strains of bacte-.
ria are immune to all
known antibiotics.

Enter Bacteriphages

Bacteriophages are
nothing new. They
weren't invented. They
have pretty much always
been around. They've .
been being scrutinized
since as early as 1896,
when Ernest Hanbury
Hankin reported that
something in the waters
of the Ganges and Jumn;
rivers in India had
marked antibacterial ac-
tion against cholera. '
Upon closer scrutiny ;
these things were found


to be microviruses. Tiny
Seven for a microbe)
viruses that attack cer-
tain types of bacteria. In
some countries they have
even been regularly used
to treat such ailments as
E. Coli. Bacteriophages,
such as T4 (nice, short,
easy to remember name
for a microbe, amirite?),
when in solution (in your
bloodstream) float around
until they encounter.:
their particular prey,
- they then attach them-
selves to the target bacte-
ria, and implant mali-
cious strands of their
RNA into the core of the
' bacteria. The RNA then
begins to "eat" the bacte-
ria, using parts of the
bacteria to build more
bacteriophages, just like
other viruses might do fto
your cells.

As these bacteriophages
only target specific bacte-
ria, and as they could re-
main in your blood-
stream indefinitely, it
would take, theoretically,
much longer for a bacter-
ial strain to develop a re-
sistance to a particular
bacteriophage. Also, un-
like conventional antibi-
otics, the bacteriophages
are selective in the bacte-
ria that they destroy,
thereby preventing dam-
age to the good bacteria
that is in your body I am
astounded that more rd-
search is not being done
into these potentially
medically useful organ-
isms, especially in light
of the recent fixation of
a the doom-sayers on the
impending creation of su-
per-bugs. The FDA has al-
read) allowed the use of
bacteriophages in food prod-
ucts to inhibit spoiling.

demand. Look for the bloodmobile in the parking lot of
Foodland in Evan's Square between the hours of 9 a.m. and

"During the holiday season, people have so many things to.
do, that giving blood goes to the end of the list. We invite
you to make a lifesaving difference in someone's life by do-
nating blood. Thanks for giving!" said Joyce Higgins, donor
recruiter for LifeSouth.
All donors will receive a recognition item and a complimen-
tary cholesterol screening. Donors must be at least 16 years

BRONSON URGES
CONSUMERS TO CHECK OUT
CHARITIES

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is reminding consumers
that they can check on the legit-
imacy of charities that seek do-
nations and find out how regis-
tered charities spend their mon-
ey The reminder comes as
charities launch their busiest
time of the year, November and
December. Many collect about
half their annual donations in
the short time between Thanks-
giving and New Year's Day.

Most charities that do business
in Florida are required to regis-
ter with the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services each year and
provide financial information
about income and expenses.
There are more than 13,000
charitable organizations cur-
rently -registered with the state,
a number that increases every
year.

"Unfortunately, as the number
of charitable organizations
grows, so does the number of
con artists posing as legitimate
charities to take people's mon-
ey," Bronson said. "I'm afraid
the bad economy will likely re-
sult in even more instances of
bogus charities trying to take
advantage of people's kind-
ness."

Consumers can find out if a
charity is registered by calling
the department's consumer
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-
800-435-7352) or 1-800-FLAYUDA
for Spanish, or by logging on to
http://www.800helpfla.com.
They can also check the com-
plaint history of an organiza-
tion.

However, even if a charity is
properly registered, consumers
should find out more about how
a charity operates. The depart-
ment does not endorse any
charity, even those properly reg-
istered. But it does provide a
breakdown of how much chari-


ties spend on fundraising, ad-
ministrative costs such as
salaries and operating expenses
and how much actually goes to
the program services.

"The department doesn't have
any authority over how these
organizations spend their mon-
ey," Bronson said. "But we can
provide that information to con-
sumers so they can make edu-
cated decisions about whether
they think a charity is operat-
ing prudently If an organiza-
tion spends a small percentage
on services, consumers may
. want to think twice about do-
nating."

The department also provides
the names of professional solic-
itors and consultant who are
working on behalf of a charita-
ble organization. Bronson pro-
vided the following tips to con-
sider when deciding whether to
donate to an organization:

- Don't judge an organization
based on an impressive-sound-
ing name. Find out what it ac-
tually does.

-- Be wary of emotional appeals
and organizations that have
only vague plans for spending
the funds they collect.

-- Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an orga-
nization, not an individual.

-- Be wary of organizations that
offer to send a "runner" to pick
up your donation. Reputable
charities are willing to wait for
your contribution.

-- You have the right to ask for
an organization's financial re-
port and its federal tax identifi-
cation number, the latter of
which you'll need to claim your
contribution as a tax deduction.

-- Ask the organization to send
you written information about
its activities.

-- If an organization is not reg-
istered, contact the department.

Obituaries and Faith


Mrt. and Mrs. Clarence Eugene McDougal

Clarence Eugene McDougal, affectionately known as
Gene and Pawpaw, age 68, and his wife, Esther Faye Mc-
Dougal, affectionately known as Faye and Mawmaw, age
67, of Hiawassee, GA, and Old Town, Florida, passed away
Wednesday November 5, 2008 in Lowndes County, Geor-
gia, from injuries they sustained in an automobile acci-
dent. They were Jehovah's Witnesses and were members
of the Hiawassee, Georgia congregation as well as the
Chiefland, Florida congregation. Gene was born on April
2, 1940 in Iuka, Mississippi, the first of two children of
Reba and Clarence Oliver McDougal. Faye was born on
August 18, 1941 in Tupelo, Mississippi, the 6th of the 10
children of Harvey and Elma Bailey.

When he was just 9 years old, Gene started a newspaper'
delivery business that he maintained and developed for 22
years. Gene and Faye grew up together and were high.
school sweethearts. They eloped on November 30, 1957 -
'and their five children- sons Mike and Nathan' and daugh-
ters Teresa, Lisa and Kim were all born in Tuscumbia, Al-
abama. Faye was a homemaker who spent her entire life
lovingly caring for her husband, children and grandchil-
dren.

In 1971 Gene moved with his family to Safety Harbor,
Florida and in 1976 he opened
his,own real estate compa-
ny,C.E. McDougal Re-
alty Inc. which be-
gan operating in
the Clearwater
area. In 1983 Gene a
and Faye moved -..t
with their two
youngest daugh-
ters to Old Town,
Florida. A couple
years later Mike and
Nathan joined them. and the
three McDougals continued working together with other
family members joining the business over the years.

In 1985 Gene and Faye took a trip to Hiawassee, Georgia
and Gene fell in love with the mountains. Since that time
they have spent part of each year living in Hiawassee.

Gene wll always be remembered as a hard working man
who tirelessly cared for his family and never gave up de-
spite obstacles. He was outstandingly friendly and 'never
met a stranger'. Gene was always fair and honest in his
dealings with others. He loved fishing, boating and read-
ing and he took special pleasure in recounting family
memories and events. Faye worked hard to care for their
family and loved to cook and sew. She was also the family
historian, preserving cherished memories in photographs
and home movies. Gene and Faye were always profuse in
expressing love and showing hospitality towards all. In
2006 Gene suffered a stroke but his beloved and devoted
wife Faye nursed him back to health. In three weeks Maw-
maw and Pawpaw would have been married for 51 years.
They married young, grew up with their children and
loved and cared for each other and for theirfamily every
day of those 51 years,

Gene and Faye are survived by, their five children: Mike
and his wife Karen of Trenton, Florida, Nathan and his
wife Lisa of Trenton, Florida, Teresa Deremer and her
husband Doug of Fairbanks, Alaska, Lisa Anderson and
her husband Doug of Old Town, Florida, Kim Vartuli and
her husband Joe of Hiawassee, Georgia. Ten Grandchil-
dren: Nathan McDougal, Jr, Ashley Thornton, Joshua
McDougal, Jeremiah McDougal, Amanda McFarland, Am-
ber McDougal, Megan Anderson, Zachary McDougal,
Hunter Anderson, Trevor Vartuli. Gene's mother Reba
McDougal-Burke of Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Gene's sis-
ter Linda Hunt of Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Faye's sisters
Louise Aycock and Barbara King, both of Leighton, Al-
abama. Faye's three brothers, Kenneth Bailey,Dan Bailey
and Jimmy Bailey, all of Alabama.

Many other family members and dear friends.

A memorial service discourse was given by Bro. William
Ransford of the Cross City, Florida congregation of Jeho-
vah's Witnesses. Bro. Rick Butler of the Hiawassee, Geor-
gia Congregation officiated the grave side service at Lau-
rel Hills Memory Garden, Young Harris, Georgia. Pall-

their hearts and sounded so.

was special as always with
the Crenshaws singing in
the morning service and-
the Brittons in the evening.

Mark your calendars now
for a Thanksgiving Eve
meal in the fellowship hall

wonderful Christian fellow-

terward. We plan to gather
around the piano and sing
and just visit and enjoy
each other's company while
we're giving Thanks to God
for all His blessings.

November 30th will be our
5th Sunday night sing. If
you want to sing, play an
instrument or whatever, get
in touch with Bro. Jim
Fisher so he can get you on
the list. We have so much
talent in our church, it's al-
ways a wonderful time as
each one uses the talents
God has given them.Re-
member this week to pray
for the less fortunate, invite
someone to church with
you, pray for the ones who
are sick, or in the hospital,
having tests, or whatever
their problems may be.
Also, always remember to
pray for the lost.

May God bless you and
keep you safe, happy and
