Hard Hit

Car takes out concrete light pole in Cross City


*. *. .....-: ... ,,' ,

A blue sedan crashed into a light pole in front of the First Baptist Church of Cross City on
Saturday morning. Thankfully the driver suffered only minor injuries. The light pole and
car, however, were not so lucky



Bears Host Football Banquet


The Bears had their annual Football banquet on Thursday night. Awards were presented to
players, cheerleaders, and supporters. See'complete story and photos, page 4.


Green is the word in today's world. With the
price of hybrid vehicles higher than 20,000
greenbacks, reducing your carbon footprint
makes consumers a bit green around the
* gills. Never fear, a new trend has a way for,
you placate the environmentalist in you, and
save money at the same time. According to a
study done by the UF, the average cost of a
funeral is over $6000, but may cost as little as,
$1000, or over $10,000. A funeral that is car-
ried out by the family, can be much less ex-
pensive.

In years past, it was not uncommon for a
persons family to take charge of their funer-
al when they passed away When grandma
shuffled off the mortal coil, her kin would
clean her up, make her presentable, and lay
her out in the parlor for the family to gather
round and say their goodbyes. Nowadays.
most of this is handled by a funeral home, as
many can't seem to undertake the task of
undertaking their loved-ones. A common
misconception, however, is that the hire of a
funeral director is required by law. Many
hospitals may tell you that they can only re-
lease the remains of your loved one to a fu-
neral director, but this is incorrect.

The confusion,comes from Florida Statute
382.006(1), which reads:.

"The funeral director who first assumes cus-

"'! . .':: "- ; :' = 7" -'-'.- 7

The proverbial "Pine Box" Is elegant in it's
simplicity, cost effective, relatively easy to make, and
biodegradable.


tody of a dead body or fetus must obtain a
burial-transit permit prior to final disposition
and within 5 days after death. The applica-
tion for a burial-transit permit must be signed
by the funeral director and include 'the funeral
director's license number The funeral director
must attest on the application that he or she
has contacted the physician's or medical ex-
aminer's office and has received assurance
that the physician.or medical examiner will
provide medical certification of the cause of
death within 72 hours after receipt of the
death certificate from the funeral director"

Formerly the statute was numbered
382.061(1) and read a bit differently:


Friday the 13th

Strikes Bears


Brett Sullivan makes it to first


by Angel Lee
On March 13th, the Bears
hit the road yet again
and traveled cross-county
to take on the Indians of
Chiefland.
The Bears -,
looked to be
ready for the
challenge, and
Duane Lord took
the mound ready
to get to work.
The Bears' of-
f,'ense struggled
to get things go-
ing at first, but
did manage to
snag a few hits
and push a run
across the plate.
The Indians
however, got the
best of the
Bears' pitching,
scoring 11 total
runs, and the In-
dian defense did
the rest by keep-
ing the Bears off
the bases. Friday Duan
-the 13th held up to
it's reputation of being
bad luck, as the Bears
were sent home with a
heartbreaking loss, 11-1.


The Bears have a 3 game
home stand this week, as
they play host toWillis-
ton on the 17th (JV at 4:30

"The funeral director or person acting as
such who first assumes custody of a dead
body or fetusshall...",

You see the difference that first line
makes? It used to say "funeral director or
person acting as such..." the new statute
says funeral director, period. Now, doesn't
that seem to mean that only a funeral direc-
tor can take charge of-one's mortal remains?
It sure does. However, if you have a look at
Florida Statute 382.002(8) you'll find this def-
inition of funeral director:

""Funeral director" means a licensed funeral
director or direct disposer licensed pursuant
to chapter 497 or other person who first as-
sumes custody of or effects the final disposi-
tion of a dead body or a fetus as described in
subsection (6)"

Which means that if you, as next of kin,
take charge of your loved ones remains, you
ARE the funeral director, and are authorized
to act as such.

The first thing needed to start with is a
death certificate. This document will gener-
ally be signed by a physician and will state
the cause of death, if known. A death certifi-
cate must be filed in the county that a person
died in within 5 days of their departure, and
must be filed before they can be buried.

Second, you will need a transporting and
disposition permit. This must be obtained
within 5 days of the death, before the burial,
and must be filed in the county that the per-
son will be buried in within 10 days. This i
the form that allows you to transport y

We, the deadbeats?

According to some yo-yo by the name of Ban Ki-moon, the
SUnited States is a "deadbeat donor" to his organization. Like
we, as a nation, owe his outfit or something.

Did I forget to mention, the organization in question is the
'United Nations? And that the yo-yo in question holds the pres-
tigious office of Secretary-General? Not that either makes
much difference, just thought you might like to know. '

Sinceyou are probably an American citizen if yourEe'reading
S this,'perhaps you'd be interested in knowing what this pip-
squeak from South Korea is using as an excuse for calling us
"deadbeats." It seems he doesn't think we're paying our mem-
bership dues promptly enoi~gh. Our dues, by the way, come to
* 220 of the UN's total budget, even though we're only one of
192 member nations with the same one vote the other'191
have, and most of them vote against us when the UN is edin-
sidering a resolution. That's from a charter membership of 51i
in 1945; at the end of World War II. Since that time. the UN
has granted membership to places like Togo. Burundi and
' Mauritius. Never heard of them? Neither had I until I looked
up the membership list.

R IRemember the "one man, one vote" mantra during the civil
rights protests in the 1960's? It seemed reasonable then. and it
still does; however in the UN our country gets the same vote
as those places most of us have never heard of, and there are
not just states, but cities and counties here in Amierica with
larger populations than some UN member nations. But that
doesn't seem to bother those of the internationalist mentality.

There's something else that Ban Ki-moon ought to be thinking
about. He's from South Korea, or the Republic of Korea, as it
is formally designated. To his homeland's immediate north is
a country going by the improbable name of the Democratic
People's Republic of Korea, better known as North Korea.

'Following World War II, the Korean Peninsula was divided at
the 38th Parallel, with the Communist Soviet Union in charge
of the northern part and the Utfited States the southern half.
In 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea, and the United
States became involved in another conflict, the final result of
which was the re-establishment of the 38th Parallelas the
border. '

To this day, we keep a considerable security force in place to
ensure the survival of South Korea. Had we not gotten in-
volved in 1950 and had we not maintained a securt-ity force in
Korea ever since, Communist North Korea would own the .,
S whole peninsula. North Korea's current urohymenopteran-in-
charge is Kim Jong-il, an obnoxious little twerp who has un-
fortunately succeeded in acquiring a weapons-grade nuclear
capability, with which he seeks to intimidate neighboring
c countries both large and small. Considering these things, one
cannothelp wondering why the Secretary-General of the UN, "
being ftom South Korea, would have the audacity to insult the
nation that is keeping his intact. If we were to pull out tomor-
row, Ban Ki-moon's home real estate would be in more trouble
than a small pig at a pit bull convention.

I'm not suggesting that we should pull out of korea; we have
entirely too much blood and treasure invested in that place to
just let.a.belligerent Communist government take it over. But
by the same token, we should let Ban Ki-moon and his govern-
ment know that we expect a little respect for our efforts.

Where we should pull out is the UN. And since they're set up
in our country, an eviction notice would be very much in or-
der. I'm sure most of the members would be happier in Mauri-
tiuis, wherever that is.


Political tags such as royalist, communist,
Democrat, populist, fascist, liberal,
conservative, and SO forth are never basic
criteria. The human race divides politically
into those whb want people to be controlled
and those who have no such desire.

Glen Beck's 9-12

Let's.face it: politics is noth-
ing but rhetoric chasing af-
ter money If you're con-
fused about all the rhetoric
coming out of Washington
these days, just 'remember it
has nothing to do with logic
and, everything to do with
money and power.

On the other hand. there's
Glenn Beck, that absolutely
crazy guy on FOX News
Channel. He's a certifiable
nut for sure. But, thank God,
he"s not alone.

In the midst of interviewing
a diverse range of experts ,
and interesting people. Beck
has the audacity to mrnLx in
questions of principles, val-
ues. and (yes) even God...on
network TV! Isn't there sup-
posed to be a federal law sep-
arating church and TV?

Beck has the audacity to in-
timate to his viewers that
maybe solutions to our prob-
lems can be based on princi-
ples, values, and belief in
God. In his blog on March
.15. Beck writes, "I think one
of the problems we have not,
only in the media but in our
own discussions is the fact
that we concentrate too
much on the other guy"

What-kind of crazy talk is
that? Psychologically speak-
ing, that's counterintuitive.

Beck tells .his followers they
are not alone, but are sur-
rounded by like-minded peo-
ple who have committed to
making a difference for good
based on 9 principles and 12
values.

The 9 principles:

1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and
He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to
be a more honest person
than I was yesterday.

opened up the door for MY money to be spent on killing the

On his website < http://the-
Glennbeck912project.com/9p
principles> Beck includes
quotes from George Wash-
ingtorl and Thomas Jeffer-
son justifying each principle
as if either of these two men
might know a thing or two
about governing America.

Beck's 12 values:

Honesty
Reverence
Hope
*,Thrift'
Humility
Charity
Sincerity
Moderation
Hard Work
Courage
Personal Responsibility
Gratitude

As some have pointed out,
these values parallel Boy
Scout and Marine Corps val-
ues. Just goes to show the
company Beck keeps.

So, what's Beck trying to 'do,
and why don't the main-
stream media (MSM) care


(excluding FOX News Chan-
nel, watched by more, view-'
ers than, CNN and MSNBC
combined)?

According to his website,
"This is a non-political
movement. The 9-12 Project
is designed to bring us all
back'to the place we were on
September 12, 2001. The day
after America was attacked
we were not obsessed with
Red States, Blue States or po-
litical parties. We were unit-
ed as Americans, standing
together to protect the great-
est nation ever created."

SThat's what Beck's trying to
do.

Why don't the liberal MSM
care or cover what he's do-
ing? Obviously, progressives
cannot lead us forward if we
keep trying to go back to
that day of unity The pro-
gressives are in charge of
Washington and the MSM
for the foreseeable future,
That's politics.

But, Beck is raising an alter-
native to politics as usual.
He's asking America to re-
turn to her root values and
principles. What effect
would such a movement
have on national politics and
our economy, particularly if
it grows to significant num-
lbers of Americans?

We are witnessing a battle
for control of America be-
tween liberal progressives
on one side launching con-
tinuous smear campaigns
against conservatives, and
the rest of us wondering
how in the world we got to
where we are today.

When will this battle end?
Thomas Jefferson gives us a
clue: "The democracy will
cease to exist when you take
away from those who are
willing to work and give to
those who would not."

tion Commission (FWC) arrested three people in an al-
ligator poaching case last week in Glades County.

While on routine patrol, Officer Scott Van Buren and
Lt. Pam Steelman observed a pickup truck pulled
halfway off County Road 731, which is south of Rainey
Slough. There, they observed a man in a canal along
the road; he was retrieving an alligator. A woman was
in the bed of the truck, and a 17-year-old male stood
next to the truck. Upon inspecting the truck, officers
found three loaded rifles, four pieces, of fresh alligator
meat and two live hatchling alligators. The officers
found three butchered alligator carcasses near the
canal.

Three people -- Joshua J. Todd, DOB 10 12 90,., of Alva;,
Natalee M. drant, DOB 1/13/91, of 'Lehigh Acres: and a
juvenile -- were charged with seven misdemeanor
counts of taking and possessing American alligators.
All three were booked into the Glades County jail.

"We hope this case sends a strong message to would-be
wildlife poachers," Steelman said. "'We will find you ,
and hold you accountable for criminal acts."

Four South Carolina anglers on hook,
1,268fish seized
Friday the 13th proved unlucky for four South Carolina an-
glers when a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) officer seized their entire catch of 1,268 freshwa-
ter fish. The case is believed to be the largest of its kind ever
filed in Polk County by the FWC:
Veteran FWC officer Jim Adams received an anonymous tip
that led him to seize 1,264 shellcrackers, one warmouth, one
spotted sunfish and two undersize largemouth bass from the
group of out-of-state anglers fishing on Lake Kissimmee.
Each angler is allowed 50 panfish per day, with a maximum of
two days' bag limit in possession. Possession limit violations
are a second-degree misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up
to $500 and/or 60 days in jail .
Sam C. Shumpert, (DOB 01/01/42), of 1508 McNeil Drive, West
Columbia, SC, was charged with possession of 294 fish over
the legal possession limit.
Daniel Shumpert, (DOB 04/24/43) of 17 Dunbar Rd., West Co-
lumbia, SC, was charged with 294 fish over his legal posses-
sion limit.
Richard L. Richenbaker, (DOB 12/08/62), and his wife, Maura
R. Richenbaker, (DOB 11/28/62), 54 Rick Road, St. Matthews,
SC, were each charged with 340 fish over the legal possession
limit.
The four anglers had been fishing out of Grape Hammock
Fish Camp on Lake Kissimmee for three days. They told
Adams they had been coming to Florida to fish every spring
for a number of years and that fishing in South Carolina was
never as good as it was here.
"The FWC depends upon partnerships forged with conserva-
tion-minded sportsmen to ensure the future of our freshwa-
ter fisheries," Adams said. "Reports to the Wildlife Alert Hot-
line of potential violations are a key component of that part-
nership."
The FWC donated all of the fish to Natural Encounters in
Lakes Wales. The fish will provide a six-month supply of food
for the birds that Natural Encounters trains for Disney Pro-
ductions.
Call 888-808-3922 to report fish'eies/or wildlife law violations.
Those reporting violations can remain anonymous and may
be eligible for a reward.

/ Until We Meet Again
Unknown Author


Each morning when we awake'
We know'that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on.


Our hearts still ache with sadness
.And many tears still flow.
What is meantto lose you, No one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you,
Your place no one can fill.
In life we love you dearly,
S In death we love you still.
There will always be heartache,
',,. Bt* And often a silent tear, .
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here.
.: ". If tears could make a.staircase,
And heartaches make a lane,
:" '. We'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts,
And there you will remain, ,
To walk with us throughout ur lives
Until'we meet. again.
Our family chain is broken now,
And nothing.will be the same, ,'
But as God calls us-,one by one,.
The chain'will link again.

Do we remember to
"praise GOD" for all the an
swered prayer in our lives?
We are rejoicing in the... an-
swered prayer in the Holden
family! Now their family
circle is complete! A recent.
rough, tough, husky and
mean construct ion worker
named-Tom, drank, cussed,
smoked arid was sinning in
the devil's world. But GOD
reached dowvn and saved
him and gave him ahew'life
to live. All his buddies were.
livilig in that same "old pat-'
tern" too! But they saw a
wonderful charge in their,
friehtd, Tom! Every time he'
hit his finger with the ham-
mer he said; "Well joy". He,
smiled with "joy" in his
Sheaft! He prayed before eat-
ing with "joy"'on his lips. He
didn't tell dirty jokes any-
mo4e he was spreading
GOD'S "joy" just every-
where! The construction
gang watched Tom, and
sometimes made fun of
him.Soon GOD worked,
through that big, tough guy
Tonr... to reach his buddies.
Now, when things go
wrong; they all say..JUST
CALL IT "JOY"! Do we
wait JOY in our life? GOD
willgive us the victory,
when we join HIM in the
figlt! Fight the devil...just
feel'the "joy" today; that's
GO]b's way! HE will show us
the right way!


Our church will pick up the'
children that tieed a ride.to
church! Call the church of-
fice at 498-2108 if you need a
'ride! We love and appreciate
our drivers: Bob Puckett,
Chris Brigalia. Stephen
Reed and Kenny Morrow
- We are remembering
these friends and family in
our prayers! Keaton Hold-
en, Kimberly Miller, Patri-
cia Blinstrup, Tina Mitchell,
Sean Oglesby, Robert Garm-:
ley, Scott Holden, Dylan .
Hearndon, James and Helen
Craig, all the un-spoken.and
the world financial needs!
*,Special thanks also to
those folks bringing break-,
fast snacks last month: Jodi
Shipman, Mary Kate
-Mitchell. Dana and Chris
Brigalia and those giving in
our "love donation" cup We
have enjoyed your loving
heart! ,
We enjoyed Little Hanna
Holden singing for us last
Sunday! Also Harry Gatlin
sang during both services!

THOUGHT: praise flows

redeemed! We thank every-"

is a fascinating book that sums up the other 65 books of the

insightful revelation of who Jesus Christ really is. It re-
veals not just the doom and gloom that is to befall the
wicked but the glorious future of the Church. Join us in
this teaching series! I would also like to encourage you to
. visit your local Bible Book Store and request a copy of my
book "What To Expect In The Coming days." It was pub-
lished by Tate Publishing and is also available at
Amazon.com or various other places on the web. It is really
proving to be prophetic in content as the future unfolds be
fore us. Pastor Jim Hurst

Calvary Temple News
How much more exciting can it be? As bad as things are in
this world (and getting worse) for the Christian believer our
hearts should be leaping with joy Jesus said, "When you
see these things beginning to come to pass, look up, for
your redemption (deliverance) draws very near."


While I am of the opinion that things will probably get
much worse before they get better I can see the love, mercy,
15, and compassion of God reaching out to all who will give
end- heed. His message has not changed: "Come unto Me all ye
mned that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." As
hus-. you read your Bible you, discover that God has never execut-
hus- ed His judgment without first giving opportunity for salva-
she tion. Weare now experiencing this time of opportunity! ,
While many are content to lay the blame for .the world con-
S editions today at the feet of God it is not God who we should
lay the blame..It was manthat God gave the responsibility
to exercise authority and dominion in the earth (Genesis
2:2,28). It is what we have made it! It will be Jesus who will
soon return arid fix what we have broken. As government.
leaders around the world are now calling for a New World
Order (including our president) this is the prelude to exact-
ly what the Bibleforetold would' occur under the rule of the
a, tichrist .
As the G20 meets next month they will be discussing how to
go about establishing this New World Order along with how
to establish a One World.Currency I am not Bible thumping

Now, if you wish to I

likely need to know th
in Florida a persons r
mains must be refrige
ed or embalmed after
hours. Dry ice, or regi
ice, will work to satisfy
this statute, as most d
have embalming equi:
ment in their garage.
Also, the chemicals us
to embalm certainly
negate much of the
"Green" aspect of a h
funeral.

When it come time t(
bury your loved one,
there are many option

to be cremated. If your

'e- many, you'll need to con-

24 the cremation container

fy sturdy enough to be han-

P- a size that will allow it to
fit through the cremation

with the crematorium for
their dimensions. If your,
ome loved one had a pace
maker, many crematori-
ums require that it be re-
o moved. If. they departed
in a hospital, you can re-,
ns quest that hospital staff
nd remove the device for
you, in many cases they.

OUT AT THE ROCK

Rock Sink Baptist Church
was pleasantly surprised
last Sunday morning as the
entire morning service was
brought to us from our
youth group.
Bill-and Anna Allen are do-
ing an excellent job as lead-
ers of our youth, which are
6th grade and up.
Claire Curry and Ashlyn '
Huffman were music direc-
tor and led the congregation
and the all-youth choir in
singing.

We had special music from
the young quartet version of
the Rock Bottom Singers.
I'm sure we will hear more
from the "Little Rocks" as
they had a standing ovation!
They have already been
asked to perform at out 5th
Sunday Night Sing, coming
up on March 29th at 7:00
PM.
We invite you to come out
and listen as BOTH quar-
terts thrill your heart!
Caleb Currie then took over
the podium (Brother Terry--
mbve over!) The message
was from 1 Samuel 17, the
story of David and Goliath.
Caleb reminded us that
there are many giants in
our lives and then he stated,
"The bigger they are, the
harder they fall!"
Our youth are our future


leaders and we are always
pleased when we seethem
so involved in Christian ac-
tivity and ministry.
Young and old alike, our
congregation would like to
extend an invitation to you
to come out to Rock Sink
Baptist Church and worship
our Lord with us.
It's hard to find a more
warm and loving church
and we know that "You're

cheaper than a tradition-
al funeral.

Burial at sea is a gener-
ally less sought-after
mode of disposition. It is,
however, legally accept-
able. There are special
rules and regulations re-
garding the disposition of
a persons mortal remains
by means of the ocean.
As with anything, check
local laws. The EPA states
.that on the west coast of
Florida, the area that a
body is interred must be
at least 3 nautical miles
from land, and at a depth
of at least 1800 feet. The
EPA requires notice of
said burial at sea within
30 days, and forms can be
found at:
http://www.epa.gov/Re-
gion4/water/oceans/bur-
ial.htm

A "Green" memorial park
called Ramsey Creek Pre-
serve is located near
Westminster, South Car-
olina, and is attracting
people looking for alter-
natives to traditional
burials. This "ecosys-
tem" accepts bodies in
:their natural state and
then returns them to the
earth, with trees planted
at the site to "draw the
last benefit of life from
the process of death."

So, there you have a
good outline of the legal


aspects of caring for your
loved ones after they de-
part. How about the eco-
friendly part? I'm sure
we're all familiar with
the 'Ashes to ashes. Dust
to dust" verse. The Bible,
in it's infinite wisdom,
pointed out that when
you die, your body is sup-
posed to return to the cy-
cle, becoming as nutri-
ents for plants. In most
modern funerals, graves
are lined with concrete,
vinyl, or other non-per-
meable material. The cas-
ket is manufactured var-
nished wood, metal, per-
haps some plastic, and
sealed tight. The body is
pumped full of toxic
chemicals to prevent de-
composition. How's a
body supposed to return
to the soil with all of
these barriers to natural
composting in place? It.
takes a while. A home fu-
neral, with a simple
wooden casket, will en-
sure that nature gets the
full benefit of the nutri-
ents that the dearly de-
parted no longer have a
use for. Planting a tree or
flowers over the grave
site is a beautiful way of
seeing immortality at its
best.
