When it rains, it pours.

Especially if you're a mem-
ber of the John and Chris-.
tine Lubin family Their
son Jacob was badly
burned in an bonfire acci-
dent in December. Jacob
suffered second and third
degree burns all over his
body, from his collarbone to
his ankles. Jacob is a
friendly thirteen-year-old
with a great sense of hu-
mor, even when he's in pain.
He's a student at Ruth Rains
Middle School. The Lubins
also have a sixteen year old
son John, who plays for the
DCHS J.V Basketball team.

Jacob was burned after
spilling gasoline on himself
and then getting too close to
a fire. He ran into the
house aflame, and his father
wrapped a comforter
around him to douse the
flames. Christine said that
the ambulance came and
quickly loaded Jacob. He
was in so much pain. "I
didn't know what to do but I
looked into his eyes and I
just kept saying 'Say the
name of Jesus' over and
over and over and he did.
But then I looked down and
saw his poor body; the skin
was just coming off of his
arms...and I just lost the
ability to speak. The para-
medic, I don't remember his
name, he saw that I couldn't
talk, and bless him, he just
took my place and kept
telling Jacob to keep saying
'Jesus" and I think that's the
only thing that kept him
from going into shock."

Jaey he& spent months re-
covering from the fire and
the :eight surgeries that have
been required. Just this
week, he was moved to
Shands at Vista Rehabilita-
tion. He's much happier
there: he has his own room,
and he's able to sleep more
soundly at night without all
of the hospital chaos. He
misses his pet chihuahua
horribly, and really wants to
go home. His parents hope
he'll be able to get out of
Vista in two or three weeks.


Jacob's parents are required
to be there with him for al-
most 12 hours each day, in
order to learn the skills they
will need so that he can fi-
nally come home. They've
learned to change his dress-
ings "in the dark," and
they're eager for him to be
discharged and return to
Dixie. They've been staying
at Ronald MacDonald House
in Gainesville, and driving
across town to North
Gainesville where Shands at
Vista is located every day.

The Lubins are of, modest
means, and drive a 20 year
old car that served their
needs, until Thursday On
Thursday, Mr. Lubin was on
his, way to see Jacob and
through no fault of his own,
was in a car accident and
their only transportation
was totalled. Now they have
no way to get back and forth
to complete the care that Ja-
cob requires. Shands at
Vista was very clear that if
the Lubins are not present
every day, that it could delay
Jacob's release significantly.

The insurance on the to-
talled car may net the Lu-
bins a couple of hundred
dollars; not nearly enough to
purchase a car. The family


is trying to find a car to bor-
row to get them through t h is
crisis, but haven't had much
luck yet.. The medical bills
are going to. reach astronom-
ical heights. Just having to
be in Gainesville all the
time causes serious finan-
cial strain for the family.

Even when Jacob gets to
come home to Old Town,
long his ordeal will not be
over. He will have to wear a
"pressure suit" for at least a
year, and he won't be able to
be out in the sunshine.

The Lubins are optimistic,
and are determined to do
the best they can for their
son. :'Never in my wildest
dreams, did- I think some,
thing like this could hap-
pen," Christine Lubin said,
"I just don't know what
we're going to do. We can
take care of him, we just
want him to be able to come
home." When asked if she'd
be happy to get her life back
to some sort of normal, Mrs.
Lubin replied with her head
high and a small quaver in
her voice, "This is our new
normal."

If you can help the Lubin
family, please contact the
Advocate at 352-498-3312.

Monday evening's Cross
City Council meeting was
fairly uneventful. Council-
men Hurst and Gantt were
not present at the meeting,
and most serious business
was postponed until their
return.

Some discussion was made
of garbage issues within
the city limits, Communi-
com and it's refusalto pro-

)r. Bill Martin has sponsored baseball and softball
teams here in Dixie County for the last three years.
This year, in addition to sponsoring teams, he also do-
nated a pitching machine to help the kids
practice.


"Practicing with a pitching machine is one
of the best times in a kid's life, said Dr.
Martin, "It is the only time they'll ever get
consistent pitching."

We're sure the kids are looking forward to
to practicing with the new equipment.


The Varsity game started
shortly after the JV Game
on Saturday, and had a dif-
ferent feel to it, as it was Se-
nior Night in Dixie. Just be-
fore Tip-Off in the Varsity
game, The Senior Cheerlead-
ers and Players were hon-
ored. Senior Players # 2
Rodney Scott, # 3 Cord Hart,
# 4 Eric Dix, # 11 Ricky Mc-
Dowell, 4 12 Tyrone Aiken, #
15 Chris Karlsen, # 20 Nick
Simmons, # 22 Tevin Hen-
derson, # 30 Terry Smith
and # 33 David Suro.

Tip-off followed shortly af-
ter, and the Bears got the
scoring underway, as Rodney
Scott knocked down a 2
pointer. The scoring re-
mained close, and with 4:20
left in the 1st quarter, the
score was all tied up at 4
apiece. The action picked up,
and the scoring stayed close
as Interlachen took a 31-26
lead into halftime. With 4:45
left in the 3rd, the Bears


quarter, they had closed the
gap, and the Rams' lead was
cut, and they only led by 3,
50-47 going into the final
quarter.

The 4th quarter was some of
the best 8 minutes of a game
I've seen played in a while.
With 6:17 left, the Rams led
52-50, and at the 3:25 mark,
they were winning 60-59 but
that soon changed. With 3
minutes left to go in the
game, the play went just
right, and Senior Tevin Hen-
derson raised everyone out
of their seats with a thun-
derous dunk, and the Bears
take the lead 61-60!

The scoring still stayed
close, as with 35.8 seconds
left in the game, the Rams
tied it up at 65. Oh My! The
crowd stayed on their feet
and continued to cheer on
the Bears. The game was re-
ally good, and well played.
The final score: Rams 65.
Dixie 67.

CEO's in poverty and other things absurd


I was watching Glen Beck on the tube the other day, and he
had a printer barfing out the entire text of President Oba-
ma's bail-out bill. It took most of the program, and he
wound up with a stack of paper every bit as thick as. an
unabridged dictionary, or maybe even Harry Reid.

Like Mr. Beck and no doubt also all 535 members of Con-
gress and the President, I have not read the "stimulus pack-
age" in its entirety However, I have read enough to find so
many things wrong with it that I could not possibly deal
with even the most egregious of these in this limited space.
So instead, I will mention a couple of points that I actually
*liked.,

There was the part about specifying that recipients of this
taxpayer largess "Buy American." I thought that actually
made a bit of sense, at least to the extent that an occasional
rose growing in a compost heap could smell sweet.

Personally, I've always been a "Buy American" sort of guy,
but with the qualifier that buying American is best if you
can get what you'want and get it without paying a lot more
than its worth. Let's face it, if you refuse to buy foreign-
made goods these days, there are a lot of things you'll find
yourself doing without.

And yet, a lot of conservatives are complaining that we're
inviting an economically-crippling return to the isolation-
ism of the 1930s if we prioritize buying from American
manufacturers. That's nonsense. There's just too much im-
portant "stuff" that doesn't get made here anymore. Be-
sides, the economy is already crippled, and-it's not because
we've reinstated tariffs on imported goods, so maybe we
ought to be bringing more industry back into this country,
or at least hanging on to what we still have.

But not to worry, President. Obama has,already waffled on
the "Buy American" part. Sort of like what happened with
not wanting any lobbyists in his administration.

The other part of the package that I liked was the specifica-
tion that CEOs of corporations getting bailout handouts
couldn't be paid more than $500,000 a year. Not retroactive,'
mind you, just on new applicants, but it sounded like it was
at least moving in the right direction for a change.

A lot of working Americans resent the fact tha' CiOs often
get multi-million dollar salaries while they lay off workers
and then get huge bonuses when they are replaced after
running their companies into the red. And q lot of working-
class taxpayers would resent it even more ifi these'bozos
were gaining such largess at the expense of people who ac-
tually work for a living.

Fortunately for the President, he won't have to waffle on
this one. If someone is incompetent enough to run a major
corporation into the red, but was shrewd enough to get a.
job as its CEO in the first place, then he's not going to settle
for a measly half-mil a year just because a bunch of politi-
cians in Washington say he has to.

Look at it this way: A corporation can allow its top brass to
put no end of perks on the, old expense account. Hey, CEOs
deal with a lot of stress, don't they? So what's wrong with a
month or two, all expense, at a five star hotel in the Islands?
And the corporation certainly wouldn't want him driving a
98 Toyota; he needs a new Mercedes, and even the chauffeur
shouldn't have to pump the gas. Also, plenty of time to play
golf with board members from other corporations that
might want to give him his next job.

Just a couple of not too bad ideas that unfortunately don't
amount to much. Otherwise, I couldn't find anything that
was stimulating about the President's stimulus package,
but I'll keep looking....

Wait a minute; Obama says if we don't pass it right away, it
will be too late. No time to read all of it, or even most of it,
and that's a shame because there's a lot of money at stake.
After all, a trillion here and a trillion there, and pretty soon
you're talking about serious money

Obligatory Valntine's Day Essay


S. by Kathy McKinney

Valentine's Day is Saturday As you've probably already
guessed, I'm not a big fan. I prefer cheese to chocolate, I
hate love songs and poetry, and I'm probably the most un-ro-
mantic person in the universe. Lots of people (O.K., let's
'fess up here)....lots of women like it. But for me, it's one of
those holidays where you just have to sort of accept the in-
evitability of it and go with the flow. Besides, presents are
always good, right? Who I am to turn down presents?

If you ignore the day and don't do something, people look at
you funny, and lord help you if you're a man and you don't
buy.her something nice. You'd be better off not going home,
buddy. Doug and I will probably go catch a movie and
maybe have lunch. Then I'll ditch him and go do something
I really want to do, like spend two hours in Barnes and No-
ble and Hank's yarn store. Poor guy, he'd go and pretend to
have fun looking at yarn, because he's cool
that way, but I wouldn't do that to him. (Prob-
ably why we're still friends!) I don't und


I can't be the only one who thinks that Valen-
tine's Day is a silly exercise. I suspect that se-
cretly, most men agree with me that the whole
thing was a plot cooked up'by Hallmark. Here
they are, with months and months until Moth-
er's Day, and Christmas revenue come and
gone...they needed a money-maker to keep
them going until May. So we get stuck with
Valentine's Day on the 14th of every February.


#8 Regarding Henry. Harrison Ford stars as a go-getter guy
who takes a bullet in the head and loses his lifestyle and arm-
bition, but who gets his family back. This is good stuff. ,

#7. In Good Company. Great movie with Dennis Quaid as
40-something guy who finds out his wife is pregnant and
that his new boss is like 20 years old. His boss asks him how
he's stayed married so long, and he answers with what may
be the best line ever, explaining that what is important is to
pick a great person to be in the foxhole with, and then when
you're out of the foxhole, to keep your pants on. (He says it
in more colorful language, but this is a family publication.)

#6. Casablanca. Of course. Play it again, Sam.

#5. Always. This is an 80's movie with Richard Dryfuss,
who I really don't like, and Holly Hunter, who is just as cutp
as a button, and who, unlike most Hollywood actresses, has


derstand why Cupid


was chosen to represent
Valentine's Day. When I think
about romance,


the la
Is a s
coming a


After all, what does chocolate and flowers have
to do with love? You want to prove your undy-
ing love? Forget dropping $2.75 on a piece of cardboard that
sings and says I love you. Vaccuum the living room without
my having to.ask. Fold a load of clothes and put them away.
Put some danged toilet paper on the roll thingy for once. Am
I wrong, here, ladies? I think not.

One thing I do like is Valentine's Day movies. Seems like
TMC and TBS have the best ones, or maybe I'm just showing
my age. If you don't want to'go to Gainesville to the movies,
here are my recommendations for the best Valentine's Day
movies ever. (By the way, I haven't seen "Fireproof" yet, but
from what I hear, it should be on the list, too.)

#10 Jerry McGuire. I love this movie. Tom Cruise before he
went totally insane, and of course the "show me the money"
guy I like this movie because it's realistic romance, and be-
cause the cute little kid with the glasses who knows that
"the human head weighs eight pounds" looks exactly like
that smart little chicken kid that Foghorn Leghorn is always
hanging around witli '

#9 The Quiet Man. John Wayne. Maureen O'Hara. Ireland.
Need I say more? Really, any movie that claims to be a love
story and that ends with a brawl and the hero dragging the
heroine by her hair barefoot across a cow pasture has to be
great. I wanted to put McClintock on here, too, but I figured
if I had another movie that ended with a hair-dragging, tar-
and-feathering; dragging her through her underwear in
town and then spanking her butt in public scene, ya'll might
start to think that I'm a bit on the strange side. I just like
John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. And John Wayne and.
Katherine Hepburn. And John Wayne and...oh, heck, I just
love the Duke. -So sue me.


a real southern accent. Dryfuss is actual-
ly dead through most of this one (whiclf
improves his personality AND his act- "
ing.) He plays a ghost, trying to encour-:
age Holly Hunter to move on, get over Iis
death and get a life. Lots of cool fire-
fighting from airplanes in this one, too.


ist thing on my mind
#4 Like Water for Chocolate. OK, it's al-
ort, chubby toddler most entirely in Spanish, which I know;
t me with a weapon. turns lots of people off, but this is a great
movie. It has spontaneous human com-4
-Author Unknown bustion and eternal love. (Both of which.
seem to be equally common.) It has gre t
food scenes, really bad knitting, and is
worth the subtitles. Es verdad.

#3 Heaven Knows, Mr Allison. Not exactly a typical ro-,
mance movie, but Robert Mitchum is just the most mascu-
line, manly man ever min the history of the universe and Deb-
orah Kerr plays a sweetly pretty nun. They're stuck on an
island together during WWII. Lots of romantic tension, but
not so much as a smooch. (She is a nun!! What did you
expect!?!)

#2 The Story of Us. Bruce Willis (you knew I was going to.
work him in here somewhere, didn't you?) and Michelle
Pfeiffer star in this too-real-for-comfort romantic movie.
They're married. They have kids. They think they hate
each other. They're miserable. They break up. They're mis-
erable. They get back together. They eat Chinese food. Hal -
py ending.

#1 Murphy's Romance. Quite possibly, my favorite movie of
all time. Cranky old James Garner and worn-out single -
mbm Sally Field finally get together in'this small-town flick.
He's an opinionated small-town widower and she has a
trashy, loser ex. I love, love, love this movie.

I'm sure I've missed more than a few. I wanted to include
Bed of Roses, The Lion in Winter, One Fine Day, A Walk in'
the Clouds, Camelot and The Princess Bride. All great
movies, but not as good as the first ten. If you think of
some better ones, let me know.

So after the chocolate's all gone, ditch your significant othor,
kick back on the couch and enjoy some real romance with a
great movie, and celebrate Valentine's Day however you
darned well please.. (But I'm serious about the toilet paper
thing, guys. Just put it on there! It's not that hard!)


You just THINK it's YOUR dog
Florida Mandatory Spay/Neuter Bill Introduced by Orlando Democrat


From the AKC:

Legislation that seeks to,
prohibit persons from own-
ing or maintaining an intact
dog or cat older than four
months old has been filed in
the Florida House by Scott
Randolph, a democratic at-
,torriey from Orlando. If
adopted, Florida House Bill
451 would have a profound
negative impact not only on
responsible dog breeders in
Florida, but also on all cur-
rent and prospective dog
owners. It is vital that all
breeders and concerned dog
owners in Florida contact
their elected state legisla-
tors and voice their strong
opposition to this unreason-
able and unenforceable mea-
sure.

The American Kennel Club
opposes the concept of
breeding permits, breeding
bans, or the mandatory
spay/neuter of purebred
dogs. Instead, we support
reasonable and enforceable
laws that protect the welfare
and health of purebred dogs
and do not restrict the rights
of breeders and owners who
take their responsibilities
seriously. Additionally, we
strongly support and active-
ly promote a wide range of
programs to educate the
public about responsible
breeding practices and the
responsibilities of dog own-
ership.

As currently written, HB 451
would:

Require owners of every
dog or cat in Florida to have


each animal sterilized with-
in 30 days of the animal
reaching four months of.
age, or within 30 days of the
owner receiving the animal.
Provide ambiguous ex-
emptions, including dogs
with veterinary certification
showing that sterilization
would endanger the ani-
mal's health, until such is-
sues no longer exist; Grey-
hounds currently used for
racing, until retirement;
show animals registered
with an established breed
registration organization to
be approved by the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services; dogs or
cats that have earned, or are
in the process of earning, a
competitive sports title; ani-
mals trained, or in training,
.for use in law enforcement,
military or rescue; and ani-
mals for which an owner
holds a valid breeding per-
mit issued in accordance
with an ordinance of a
county or municipality.

AKC believes that any at-
tempt at restricting the
rights and liberties of re-
sponsible breeders-espe-
cially via mandatory
spay/neuter laws-must be
defeated.

The Florida Legislature will
convene its session in early
March. As a recently filed
bill, HB 451 has not yet been
referred to a committee
within the Florida House of
Representatives. However, it
is important that all respon-
sible dog breeding and own-
ing Floridians write their
elected officials in Tallahas-


see now, respectfully ex-
pressing their strong opposi-
tion to HB 451, and asking
them to oppose the bill. This
will help ensure that the bill
will not be considered when
the legislature comes into
session.

The AKC Government Rela-
tions Department will con-
tinue to monitor the consid-
eration of HB 451 and will
notify the purebred dog
community when the bill is
assigned to a committee.
Contact information for
committee members will be
provided and purebred dog
owners should express their
opposition to HB 451 to com-
mittee members at that
time.

This bill will affect hunt-
ing dogs, purebred dogs
and cats, and mixed-
breed petsl

This is not an "animal wel-
fare" bill, but one intended
to profit a few exclusive dog-
breeders and to drive the
cost of family pets beyond
the reach of most families,
It would practically stop all
dog hunting.

Chiefland office to encour-
age him to fight this viola-
tion of our rights!

Weight, Size Limit Of Trucks

Hauling Ag Products

Relaxed Until Feb. 25 As Icy

Blast Hits Florida

TALLAHASSEE As agricultural producers begin as-
sessing freeze damage from the overnight Arctic blast
that impacted the state, Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson an-
nounced today that an executive order relaxing weight
limits on trucks transporting vulnerable crops has
been extended until February 25.
The order extending the waiver was signed last
evening by Governor Charlie Crist at Bronson's request
and enables growers to harvest more of their products
to prevent or reduce crop losses. The previous order
was schedule to expire February 11,
"We're thankful to Governor Crist for his effort in as-
sisting the agricultural community m quickly getting
their crops out of the ground," Bronson said. "Flori-
da's growers produce nearly all of our nation's domes-
tically produced fresh fruits and vegetables during the
winter months, and consumers throughout the country
rely on our crops."
Florida is at the peak of the harvest season for many
commodities, including citrus, strawberries, blueber-
ries, tomatoes, snap beans, celery, sweet corn, cucum-
bers, eggplant, peppers, radishes, squash, tropical fish
and nursery plants."
The emergency order signed by the Governor relaxes
the weight, height, length and width restrictions for
commercial vehicles transporting vulnerable crops.

da-Agriculture.com.

Bronson Warns Consumers

About Jury Duty Scam

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson today
alerted consumers to a growing identity theft scam in
which con artists posing as courthouse workers claim
that the person being called has failed to report for jury
duty
The scam has been reported in 11 states, although it is
unclear whether it has surfaced in Florida, officials
say.
"If you get such a call, hang up and avoid providing
any personal or financial information over the phone,"
Bronson said. "Court workers don't call on the phone
to inform you that you've missed a jury duty sum-
mons."
The scam typically involves a call from a person claim-
ing to be a jury coordinator who informs the person be-
ing called that a warrant has been issued for his or her
arrest as a result of the person's failure to appear for
jury duty When the intended victim. protests and re-
ports thathe or she never received a summons to re-
port for jury duty, they are asked for a social security
number, a date of birth and sometimes even a bank ac-
count number.
Providing the information enables the scam artist to
clean out the consumer's bank account and open up
other accounts, obtain credit cards and establish other
lines of credit in the victim's name, Bronson warned.
"This is a particularly insidious fraud because most
people take jury duty seriously and naturally would
want to clear up any misunderstanding about whether
they failed to show up for it as quickly as possible,"
Bronson said. "Such a call would understandably upset
most people, especially with the threat of arrest, and
catch them off guard."
The scam has reportedly surfaced in New York, Min-
nesota, Illinois, Colorado, Oklahoma and other states
in recent years, and authorities are fearful that it may
be spreading.
It is yet another example of how con artists try to rip
off consumers.
"People need to always remember to avoid giving any
personal or financial information over the telephone to
anyone whose identity they have not verified," Bronson
said.

JV Bears lose heartbreaker

On February 6th, the JV and
Varsity .teams played host to
the Bulldogs of Taylor Coun-
ty The JV Bears took to the
court, and got the night
started. With 2:45 to go in the
1st quarter, the Bears held
on to a small lead, 7-4 over
the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs
played hard and came back
to tie it up at 9 at the end of
the 1st. the Bears continued
to play hard, and at halftime,
the Bulldogs had the lead 19-
16. the Bulldogs continued to
hold their lead, but the
Bears refused to give up eas-
ily, Playing hard, the Bears
ran out of time and were de-
feated by the Bulldogs 56-34.

The Varsity Boys took to the
floor shortly after the JV
game, and played host to the
Bulldogs as well. The game
was a close one right up 'til


the end. At the end of the ist
quarter, the Bears were hold-
ing a 3 point lead over the
Bulldogs, 16-13. The Bulldogs
kept it close, as the Bears
still held on to a 3 point lead,
29-26 going into halftime.
The 3rd quarter showed just
what the previous 2 quarters
showed us, a really close
hard fought game as the.
Bears led 44-43 at the end of
the 3rd. the 4th looked just
as good, and the score got
closer between the 2 teams,
as the Bulldogs tied it all up
at 49 with 5:10 remaining.
With just 3 minutes to go in
the game,/the Bears man-
aged to pull back ahead of
the Bulldogs, by 5 points,
leading 56-51.
The Bulldogs didn't go away
quietly, as with 51.9 seconds
left in the game, the Bull-
dogs pulled to within one
point, and Dixie still led 58-
57. The Bears never looked
back from there, and
brought home a well earned,
hard fought Victory, defeat-
ing the Bulldogs 66-57.
GO BEARS!


JV Team
defeated by
Rams

by Angel Lee

In the final game of
the season for the JV
squad, they took to
the floor to host the
visiting Rams of In-
terlachen. It looked a
little promising for
the Bears in the 1st as
they led the Rams by
a score of 10-6 with
4:43 to go in the quar-
ter.

From there, the bears
fell a little behind,
and could just never
re-gain.that lost mo-
mentum. Even though
they played harder in "Joh
the second half, the broth
Bears took a hard, up-
setting loss to the Rams.

The game was a very upset-
ting one for the JV squad,
and I'm sure they'd be upset
with me if I printed the
score, so just for them, I
won't. The JV Team played

From COMMISSION, pg 1

The Livestock fair starts on
March 19th. This year there
will be a new Alumni show,
where past fair participants
will be able to show an ani-
mal of their choice. The
sale date is April 1st.

Joe Ruth, Solid Waste Coor-
dinator reported that
garbage was down 200 tons
in January "If this trend
continues, there could be
some issues." He explained
that although it was good for
Dixie County because we
won't have to pay for that
additional garbage, that it
could cause issues with the
Aucilla Landfill.

He also reported that he was
"real worried about our bud-
get." The county is going to
be required to put in a
$350,000 cap at the Transfer
Station. Previously, the
county has received a waiv-
er, but according to Mr.
Ruth, "DEP ain't going to
play with us...they'rejust.
going to go out and put a
lock on the gates."

Some discussion was made.
over placing bathroom facil-
ities at dump sites through-
out the County While fund'
are not in the budget for
construction, Commissioner
Higginbotham was adamant
that he wanted to start plac-
ing them as soon as possible,
starting with Suwannee and
'Horseshoe, and additing a
new facility.in a few months
when the budget allows.


Arthur Bellot, County Man-
ager reminded the Commis-
sion that "this is a non-bud-
get item. Revenues are not
coming in," and recom-
mended that Port-o-lets be
placed until the County can
afford to install more per-
manent facilities.

Commissioner Johnson
agreed, saying that "I"m not
for breaking' the county I be-
lieve it's going to be $100,000
by the time we get done."
The matter was tabled until
the next meeting.

Tim Alexander reported
that EMS had 233 calls and
billed $120,986.25 in january,
and collected $70,547.78.
This is better revenue collec-
tion than has been seen pre-
.viously.

He also mentioned a grant
for powerlift stretchers to
-help EMS personnel lift
heavier patients. Heavy lift-
ing is a primary source of
work injury for EMS staff.
'About 30 years too late,"
quipped Arthur Bellot, re-
ferring to his years on the
ambulance. (And, apparent-
ly, to his bad back,-too.)


Clerk of Court, Dana Can-
non was rightly commended
for her remarkable accom-
plishment: she returned
.$55,000 of unspent budget-
money to the County. The
Clerk of Court runs a tight
ship: she returns unspent
funds every year!

2009 Tri-County Land Judging Contest
The 2009 Tri-County Land Judging Contest was held January 31, 2009. There were approxi-
mately 54 Middle and High Schpol FFA students participating from Dixie, Levy and
Gilchrist Counties. Dixie Soil and Water
Conservation District hosted this year's
event.


The students met up at the 1st Dis-
trict Conimunity Center in Old ToWn. They
then raveled to the land judging site which
this year was held on the Oak Grove Dairy.
At this location there were 4 pits awaiting: -
the student's expertise, the first thing they ,
had to consider Was what is called the Con- e
dition Board. This gives infOrmation on sev- .-
eralkey items the students need to assess
the soils characteristics, such as: surface
texture, organic matter, rooting zones, per-
meability of the soil, percent of erosion,
drainage, slope and determine the soil order
at the various. depths. i
The students had to ascertain what
the best agricultural use for the land was.
They also looked at the soil conservation
and what would be the Best Management
Practice (BMP) to keep the soil in production of crops.
The following teams were in attendance and placed accordingly:
The Dixie County Team winners are:
Dixie High School Sr. Division winners: Scott Garner, Shelbi McCall, Chelsea
Stephenson and Caleb Currie. The Sr. High Point Individual is: Caleb Currie.
Dixie Middle School Jr: Division winners: Chelsey Cannon, Shelby Hank and Arialle
Spenq,-..Jr; High Point Individual is; Shelby-Hank;,
A special Thank You to the donations made from: Wal-Mlart, Winn Dixie, Hitch-
cock's of Old Town,. Foodland of Cross City,.Coca Cola-Dannon, Cameron Asbell Ins.,
Suwannee River Resource Conservation and Development Council, Anderson-Columbia Inc.
and Gail's Restaurant in Old Town for a FANTASTIC lunch. Mr. Ronnie Piedhocki, owner of
Oak Grove Dairy for allowing the students use of their farm for the judging contest. Thank
you to ALL the volunteers who assisted behind the scenes to make this event possible. With-
out wonderfulvolunteers such.as our area has, events such as these would not be possible.
We are all looking forward to the State Land Judging contest which is planned to be
held in Alachua County through the Alachua Soil and Water Conservation District this
year on March 27, 2009. Our students are the best and we wish them the best in the contest.


SPRINGHOUSE
QUILTER'S NEWS


Springhouse Quilters will be
celebrating.their seven-
teenth year this month.
Springhouse Quilters was
formed in February 1992, by
a very small group of ladies
who. started meeting at the
Lodge (Springhouse) Build-
ing at Otter Springs. The
membership has grown
from approximately 4-10
members into a membership
of over 100 members. These
are ladies who are dedicated
to quilting and in continu-
ing to teach quilting to oth-
ers. Each year, as new mem-
bers join, they are offered
the opportunity as a benefit
of being a Springhouse
member, to attend 8-10 be-
ginning quilting classes..
This year, there are approxi-
nately 12 new members who
are attending beginning
quilting classes. The mem-
bership of Springhouse en-


courage the membership to
share their knowledge and
teach others to preserve the
art of quilting. Many quilts
made over the years have
been made out of necessity
for warmth. Today, al-
though warmth is still a
must, the form of quilting
has evolved into an art form
and many quilts are made
. and preserved as a piece of
art. -/

Springhouse has two groups
of members; a day group,
and a night group. The day
group meets on the second
Tuesday each month to take
care of the business that
must be 'attended to. On the
fourth Tuesday each month
the day memb's re offered
a workshoppt9 1,arn new
quilting techniques or pat-
terns. .riOJd'lv -
The night group meets each
Tuesday night and they too
have a class of beginners
and take care of business


and have interesting work-
shops throughout each
month.

Springhouse Quilters have
used several other locations
over the years for their
meetings from Fanning
Springs City Hall, Woodman
of the World, Don Martin In-
surance, Shrine Club,
Donnnie Precinct Building
and finally located perma-
nently to their present home
west of Trenton. The prop-
erty where their house is lo-
cated was donated to. Spring-
house by Luther and Juani-
ta White of Chiefland. The
mobile home on the proper-
ty was donated by Fanning
Springs City Commission.
Members of Springhouse
along.with their family
members moved and reno-
vated the mobile home into
its current condition.

Free Books

So, you've got your electronic doo-
dad of choice, and you are all set to
do some serious reading. Well, my
friend, you have so many options
available to you now that you
might not know where to begin. I
suppose I should mention that you
can actually PAY (gasp!) for elec-
tronic books from such places as
the aforementioned ebookwise.com
and amazon.com, and barnesand-
noble.com, and this is where you'll
likely find the latest and greatest
books by most popular authors. If
you're not into the mainstream,
however, you can find many, many
books that have entered into the
public domain online for FREE.
There's my favorite word again.

Let's start out with Project Guten-
berg (www.gutenberg.org). While
they certainly don't have every
book ever published, they are well
on their way. Not exactly the place
to get the latest best-seller, but if
reading the classics is your speed,
this is a great place to find a large
selection. What's more,"they have a
great selection of books in other,
languages..

Then there's
onlinebooks.libraryupenn.edu.
Which has a great search feature,
many of the links you find here
will take you back to project guten-
berg, but they also have links to
books that aren't in the gutenberg
database.

If you're looking for a change of
pace, you can surf on over to
www.textfiles.com where some of
the brightest (and darkest) of the
internet subculture texts have tak-
en to lurking. hany of these files
' ae from the old BBS days when
MS-DOS was king. With subjects
ranging from artwork, anarchy,
and Apple IIs, to stories, UFOs, and
viruses. heck, they've probably
even got a few conspiracy theories
that you've never even heard of.

To sum it up, electronic literature
has been around for quite some
time. Only recently has is even be-
gan to consider being "main-
stream". While there are many rea-
sons to check out the ol' eBooks, I
really don't reccommend spending
$350.00 on a device to read them.

<-5 ydne&/ 4 gwe gg ,






Collards is green, my dawg's name is Blue
and I'm so lucky to have a sweet thang like you.

Yore hair is like cornsilk a-flappin in the breeze.
Softer than Blue's and without all them fleas.

You move like the bass, which excite me in May.
You ain't got no scales, but I luv you anyway

Yo're as satisfy'n as okry jist a-fry'n in the pan.
Yo're as fragrant as "snuff' right out of the can.

You have some'a yore teeth, for which I am proud;
I hold my head high when we're in a crowd.

On special occasions, when you shave under yore arms,
Well, I'rm in hawg heaven, and awed by yore charms.

Still them fellers at work, they all want to know,
What I did to deserve such a purdy, young doe.

Like a good roll of duct tape you're there fer yore man,
To patch up life's troubles and fix what you can.

Yo're as cute as a junebug a-buzzin' overhead.
You ain't mean like those far ants I found in my bed.

Cut from the best cloth like a plaid flannel shirt,
You spark up my life more than a fresh load of dirt.

When you hold me real tight like a padded gunrack.
My life is complete; Ain't nuttin' I lack.

Yore complexion, it's perfection, like the best vinyl sidin',
Despite all the years, yore age, it keeps hidin'.

Me'n' you's like a Moon Pie with a RC cold drank,
We go together like a skunk goes with stank.

Some men, they buy chocolate for Valentine's Day;
They git it at Wal-Mart, it's romantic that way.

Some men.git roses on that special day
>From the cooler at Kroger. "That's impressive ," I say

Some men buy fine diamonds from a flea market booth.
Diamonds are forever," they explain, suave and couth.

But for this man, honey, these won't do.
Cause yor'e too special, you sweet thang you.

I got you a gift, without taste nor odor,
More useful than diamonds....IT'S A NEW TROLL'N MOTOR!!

* LOVE, what is love? In the
Bible we find LOVE de-
scribed in First Corinthians
Chapter 13:4-13! LOVE is pa-
tient and kind; LOVE is not
jealous or boastful; it is not
arrogant or rude; LOVE
does not insist on it's own
way; it is not irritable or re-
sentful; It does not rejoice at
wrong; but rejoices in the
right. LOVE bears all
things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all
things! True LOVE has no
strings attached! If only the
whole world would strive to
do everything in our every-
day Oh, what a beautiful
world this would be! LOVE
can heal the greatest hurt,
mend our marriages; bridge
the gap with our children,
reach hurting souls, the de-
pressed and forlorn!
Through our missionaries,
GOD'S LOVE can be spread
around the world. Yes,
LOVE does make the world
go round! BUT lack of
LOVE can destroy this
world too!

We hope your Valen-
tines's Day in 2009 will be
just fine! It will, if you'
have... the love of JESUS liv-
ing in your heart all the
time!! Share your heart,
spread GOD'S LOVE, re-
member someonespecial

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST NEWS


It is always good to be in God's house, and Sunday
was no exception as we gathered to honor and wor-
ship His Holy Name. After our choir did its usual
fine job, we were blessed with a couple of beautiful
songs by the Waldron family, who also did a fantastic
job.,,..welcome back; anytime! It was also a blessing to
have Bro. Billy back with us, who preached for the
first time since his medical procedure. Although still
a little weak, he delivered a strong message, choosing
his text from Ephesians 3:20. We were also glad to
have Bro. Gene and Sis. Karen with us once again, as
always.

We look forward to our monthly Fellowship Supper
next Wednesday, Feb. 18th, always a time of good
Christian fellowship and fine food. And don't forget
Valentine's Day this coming Saturday!

We were most pleased to have visitors again Sunday;
welcome back anytime, and bring others with you.
The need for prayer is as urgent as ever, so we en-
courage you to pray for all those on the church prayer
lists, our military personnel, and all our political
leaders. Please be in prayer also for Bro. Robert and
Sis. Tracey and group as they begin a mission trip to
Honduras next Thursday, Feb. 19th. Have a good
week, and may God bless and keep you safe.

Abundant
highlights flavor
2008 season
by Alan Ross
It started with a soap
opera and ended with an
Oscar. The 2008 season, as
with all NFL campaigns,
was crammed fullof
game- and season-chang-
mg plays that ultimately
carved the pathway for a
two-team showdown for
the right to be called
world champions.
Summer's preseason
doldrums were height-
ened by the soap opera-
like twists and turns of
former Green Bay Pack-
ers quarterback Brett
Favre's decision to unre-
tire. After getting the
door slammed in his face
by his previous employer,
Favre brought his throw-
it-up passing game to
New York and had his
Jets flying high through
Week 12. But Favre's air-
liner crashed and burned
over the last five weeks of
the season behind misdi-
rected aerials, losing its
once-firm grip on the
-playoffs.
In opening week action,
the odds-on league fa-.
vorite to win the Super
Bowl, New England, saw
its worst nightmare come
true: Tom Brady going


rer the Ball


down in the first quarter
against Kansas City, nev-
er to return. With him
went the Pats playoff
hopes despite satisfactory
quarterback play from
backup Matt Cassel..
The surprise story of
the year unfolded early
behind a retread offen-
sive formation in Miami
called the Wildcat, the su-
perior execution of
which stunned the reign-
ing AFC champion Pafri-
ots in Week 3. The Dol-
phins also benefited from
resurgent QB Chad Pen-
nington to eventually
claim the AFC East
crown. The polar oppo-
site of Miami's rise was
Cleveland's inexplicable
downfall. The Browns,
near-playoff material in
2007, failed miserably
against a sea of high ex-
pectations. Things were
eerie along Lake Erie.
There was plenty more:
Atlanta Falcons rookie
quarterback, Matt Ryan
inaugurates his NFL ca-
reer with a 62-yard scor-
ing strike on his first
pass as a pro. The NFL
Offensive Rookie of the
Year goes on to lead his
team to its first playoff
appearance in four
years...Oakland's age-
challenged owner Al
Davis fires head coach
Lane Kiffin after just 20

ty Ed Reed leads the

ceptions, returning two

ing an NFL-record 107-
yarder against Philadel-
phia in Week 12...After
opening at 3-4, Indianapo-
lis closes out the regular
season with a nine-game
winning streak.:.Diminu-

even goes on to grab the

"Peace is not a
relationship of nations. It
is a condition of mind
brought about by a
serenity of soul. Peace is
not merely the absence of
war. It is also a state of
mind. Lasting peace can
come only to
peaceful people."
-Jawaharlal Nehru
