In the early morn-
ing hours of May
first. one of the
deputy ties that had
been assigned to
the task force, lo-
aous cated the vehicle
,havous that had eluded
the deputy the
night before, in a
suspicious loca-
tion, parked in the
tress beside the
Church of Christ
in Cross City The
deputy found two
everett individuals inside
of the vehicle.

L During this same
time frarime; a call
was received at
the 911 answering
point, concerning
two individuals
.lmonds trying to break
into Woody's Bar-
ber Shop located
one block north of.
the deputy's loca-
tion. A Police Offi-
cer with CCPD,
who was assigned
to the task force re-
"- .d sponded to the Bar-
as Brand ber Shop and did
not find anyone
present, but after speaking
with the individuals who
called 911 was able to deter-
mine :that the individuals
had fled on foot.


Inside the vehicle, investiga-
tors found masks, socks and
gloves, all of which were
suspected in being used in
the burglaries. The Cross
City Correctional K-9 Unit
responded with their blood-
hounds and assisted in'
tracking the suspects who
fled from the Barber Shop.
The K-9 Unit trains through
the streets of Cross City
throughout the year, to pre-
pare for similar scenarios.
The suspects were quickly
tracked down to their home
located over one mile from
. Woody's.

During the investigation, it
was learned that at least
four individuals had been
involved in the burglaries
that had taken place over
the last three months. Dur-
ing these burglaries over
$14,000 in items had been,
stolen to. include money,
firearms, cigarettes, beer
and liquor. It was also
learned that these individu-
als may be involved in other.
burglaries in the Tri-County
area.

Chavous remains in the Dix-
ie County Jail on a $200,000
bond. Brand is currently in
the Dixie County Jail await-
ing transport to the DOJJ.

Live music is a hit in Cross City

Saturday evening's Music in
the Park in Cross City was a
big hit with music lovers
and kids alike. Dottie and
the Slackers were there and
performed their favorites,
including "Blue Skies," "My
baby thinks he's a train."
and "Flip, Flop. Fly"

Taylor County singer and
songwriter Craig Hardin
opened the show with his
Florida home-grown songs
about front-porch cats,
"swamp cabbage and moon-
shine," and requiems for a
lost way of life. Mr. Hardin
is a seventh-generation
south Taylor County resi- e
dent and his music reflects a
love of our area and ---
lifestyle.

The event was underwritten .- .. -.I
by Dixie Music and the
Town of Cross City It was
the second of a continuing
series of live-music concerts
for the public.


Football Season kicks off

with new traditions, hope


by Angel Lee

On May 1st
the Dixie
Bears Foot-
ball Team
took to the
field to begin
their spring
practices
and to get
prepared for
the Jam-
boree game
on May 22nd.
The Bears
came out on
the field
ready to
practice, as
they hustled
,during every
play and be-
tween each
play They
stayed moti-
vated and
kept team-
mates moti-
vated when .
they got a little discouraged.

Coach Wilkerson started a
new tradition this year;
prayer both before, and after
each practice.

The Boys have a really good
feeling about this year,
showing so far just how bad
they want to win, which I.
think gives them that extra


motivation and determina-
tion they need for a success-
ful, season. Good Luck in the
Spring Jamboree Game
Boys!!!

*REMINDER*
The Bears travel to Suwan-
nee (Live Oak) to take on
the Bulldogs on May 22nd in
the annual Spring Jamboree
Game.

I want an aardvark

Just last week, I received word from one of my exclusive
contacts at CBS News in New York City that a major layoff
is about to take place at the Bronx Zoo. Possibly some mem-
bers of the species homo sapiens, otherwise known as "zoo
keepers," will be affected; however at the moment we only
know that the zoo will be laying off some of its animals.

Unfortunately, I was unable to obtain a complete list of the
beasts which will soon be among the unemployed. I was only
able to verify that the Arabian onyx will likely be terminat-
ed, along with Formosan deer, the South American guanaco,
and some lesser known species.

Among those slated to. survive the layoffs is the Siberian
tiger. Why? Obviously, you wouldn't want that species run-
ning loose in your community like some liberated Guan-
tanamo terrorism suspect. His species didn't wind up in
Siberia because Vladimir Lenin didn't want his kind in
Moscow, he wound up there ceons ag6 because his primitive
ancestor, the saber-tooth tiger, ate all the wooly mammoths
in the region. Don't take my word for it, just checkout how
many "Big Woolies" there are in Siberia today

if they're giving the laid-off animals to good homes for free,,
there's one Id especially like to have. That's an aardvark.
The aardvark eats ants, which makes him an anteater, I sup-
pose, but by no means an ordinary anteater. The aardvark is
go ugly that it makes Rosie O'Donnell look like a Miss Amer-
ica contestant. Now, who is going to steal a pet that is that
ugly?

And that's just the beginning. The aardvark is hiot just ugly,
he.has claws so huge that they make grizzly bears back off,
Which is why zoos never keep aardvarks and grizzly bears in
the same pens. Hurts the grizzly's self-esteem, don't you
know?

The aardvark's claws are not primarily for self-defense, how-
ever. He uses them to demolish rotting trees, huge mounds of
earth, discarded automobile seats and other places where
Ants hide out while they're engaged in the ongoing enter-
prise of making more ants. Now, imagine what one of these
beasts could do to those aggravating little ant mounds in
your yard!

if you owned an aardvark, an ordinary suburban yard would
not produce enough ants to keep him fed. Therefore, you'd
need to rent him out to your neighbors, which would be a.
profitable enterprise. Imagine that; no pet food to buy, no
begging scraps from the table if you keep him in the house
(unless you're on a really weird diet-I'm not sure if they
like the chocolate-covered ones or not) and besides that, your
aardvark will make you money.

Compared to a dog, a pet aardvark would be like having a
second job. The best dog I ever owned liked cheese, and not
the cheap stuff, either. Even though I found him while he
ivas abandoned without pedigree, he wanted the very best
Cheddar, and lots of it. I now have a cat, who likes deli lun-
eheon meats. Pastrami, baked ham, that sort of thing. She
won't touch sliced bologna.

Even the rattlesnakes I keep in the house for security have
to be fed occasionally, which means I have to buy rats and
turn them loose in the house. People come by, asking why I
have rats running loose in the house, I tell them they're to
feed the rattlesnakes. For some reason, even the Jehovah's
Witnesses never make return visits.

As you can see, conventional pets are costing me money,
which is why I'd like to have a pet aardvark. I'd use the mon-
ey he earned to cover the expenses involved in keeping my
other pets. That's the free enterprise system at work, for
which reason the government will probably find some rea-
son why it's illegal.

CORRECTION: Last week's paper attributed comments to Mr.
Patel, owner of Smoke and Spirits. Those comments were made
by Mr. Patel, owner of the El Dorado Motel, who was also present.
The Advocate regrets the error.

Dear Editor:

The Dixie County Bears head
basketball coach, Mr. Fred
Brown, has been released
from the upcoming 09-10 sea-
son, after three very benefi-
cial years at the post. This
was completed in a single de-
cision, without community
input.

The DCHS basketball pro-
gram has completed their 08-
09 campaign with another
winning season, aptly led by
coach Fred Brown, who re-
turned electrifying high
school basketball back to
Dixie County during his
three year tenure.

I do not have enough space in
this article to describe to you
what an outstanding pro-'
gram Coach Brown has put
together in those three short
years. He was the youngest
recipient ever to recieve the
coveted Seagal award for pro-
gram excellence. He has
earned the respect of his col-


Dear Editor:
Re: Front Page article about
Cross City Town Council
April,28,2009

Why was Clay Locklear by-
passed for appointment for a
position on the Town of
Cross City City, Council? He'
expressed and interest in
the council by running for a
seat and had the courage to
stand for election. He
missed being elected to it by
only 7 votes. :As I under-
stand the Town Charter,
voters said that he should
be the next one chosen, if
there was an opening
before the next election. If .
this isn't the way the Char-
ter is written, it should be
amended to say that the per-
son with the next most votes
should be offered the posi-
tion, if there is an opening.

There have been two other
people appolinlod ahead of


leagues around the league
and throughout the state of
Florida, from Ft. Pierce to
Pensacola. He has put Dixie
County basketball back oni
the map!

For those of you who
thought you knew what it
takes to make a good coach,
you should no longer be in.
the dark about it. It is not a
teaching certificate in math
or literature. Coaching is a
God-given talent, and cannot
be taught. Coach Fred has it.

We will request a reversal of
this decision at the upcoming.
Board of Education meeting,
on Tuesday, May 12th at 6pm
at the Old Town Elementary
School Building. Please be
there. It is very important
we have a good show of sup-
port that evening, that lifts
our children and community
up, and helps right this
wrong.

Locklear and it appears
he was not even considered
for these positions. Herb
Hurst decided he had
had enough of serving on
the Council, retired from
the'council and declined
to run again. He was "talked
into it" when he was ap-
pointed. Jamie Martin
apparently only had to "ex-
press an interest" without
running to beappointed.
Wouldn't all people in politi-
cal office like that? I am
sure both Hurst and Martin
are fine people but their ap-
pointments certainly show
"the good old boy" network
is alive and well in Dixie
County and it can complete-
ly ignore the will of the
voters.

Thank you for your interest
in reading this.

listen to lots of podcasts. One of those is'
about words, word origins, and well, heck,
just everything about language. I was sitting
there the other day.with my iPod in my ears, working on my
latest sock knitting project, when a lady called in to the
show to ask where the phrase "going by way of Robin
Hood's barn" came from. I'd never heard it before, and as-
sumed it was a northern thing. (She spoke with a decidedly
yankee accent.) The guys on the show told her that it really
was an old English phrase, that means to do something the
hard way, or to travel the scenic route, just for the fun of it.
It stuck with me, maybe because that's the way I've always
done everything...if there's a hard (or stupid) way to do
something, I've always tried that first..

* When Lwas little, Mama and Daddy took me to Valdosta. It
was the dead of winter, and all I remember is being so cold
that it hurt to breathe. My sister Liz got sick (she was the
baby at the time) and Daddy and I were supposed to cross
the street from the hotel to somewhere that had hot soup for
her. It was night time, and Daddy reached
down to hold my hand to cross the busy four- "Happines,
lane highway. I pulled my little 4 year old self from doln
up and informed him that "I'll hold my OWN
hand," and started marching across the from
street. Somehow I miraculously escaped in-. satisfal
stant death by Buick. This story has made it
into family legend as a demonstration of my after the a
in-born pigheadedness and stubborn streak. d
d
That's probably why I spend three weeks and demn
$15 on wool yarn to knit a pair of socks,
when, yes, Tim, I do know that you can buy
'em at Wally World in gigantic packs for $6.00. .
It's why I homeschool my kids, when public
school is free and it would be so much easier
to hand 'em over to be the State of Florida's problem from 8
to 3. It's why I live out in the woods with a well, a falling-
apart trailer and occasional snakes instead of living in an
apartment somewhere with free maintenance and garbage
pickup. It also must be why I have an entire sheep drying on
my dining room table, and my house smells a little
like....sheep barn (to use a nice phrase)....this weekend. I got
a good deal on an entire fleece from a Clun Fqrest sheep on
Ebay, so I figured, why not cut out the middle man? I can
make my own darned yarn.

It took me the better part of a day to wash it, over and over,
in steaming hot water, laundry soap and vinegar to get out
the lanolin, being careful not to agitate it one single bit, to
avoid felting.. Then, I hauled it into the dining room and
spread it out on towels to let it air dry. Next, I'll get out the
hand carders I got on Etsycom and I'll start to card the wool
into rolags (sort of like little wool burritos), and then I'll
spin it into yarn with my Kiwi spinning wheel. After that,
I'll have to wash it again, and then dye it, and then
finally..FINALLY...I'llbe able to knit it into something wear-
able. Yes, I know this sounds absolutely insane. And no, it's
not one bit cheaper than buying yarn at the store. So why
am I doing it? Well, because it's hard, I guess,'and because
it's in my nature to want to make things.


a 9 s a good supply of drinkable
L water to sustain a high qual-
. :...- .. ity of life.


by Art Wyckokff

Sometimes life leads us into
situations that are not easy
to explain and maybe even
termed ironic due to cir-
cumstances. Like this triv-
ial question for you to think
about: Is it meteorlogically
possible to have a flood in a
drought stricken area?

Easy answer for those living
is the Panhandle of Florida
the past few weeks. Locally
the Santa Fe and Suwannee
Rivers did just that as our
limerock roads have turned
into dust bowls and our
woods have become tinder
waiting for a spark. Ironi-
cally, the second week in
May has been designated as
NATIONAL WATER CON-
SERVATION WEEK!

Despite some crass com-
ments made by a local
columnist that mocked the
conservation of natural re-
sources, water conservation
IS a statewide, national and
international concern. I re-
alize I may be stepping over
the simple gardening col-
umn line into the edge of
the nebulous political abiss
when I appeal to all to not
waste potable water. You do
not have to be paranoid
about your water use habits,
just be aware of being con-
servative about its use.
City's and towns all across
America are presently in-
volved in reaching feasible
solutions to guarantee that
future generations will have


Kudos to Dixie County local
entities such as: the Board
of County Commisioners as
well as Anderson River Park
and Fanning Springs
Springs State Park all have
required native drought tol-
erant shrubs be planted at
their properties. Our new
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter as well as the new Habi-
tat for Humanity house will
have a water efficient micro-
irrigation system installed
to insure now water waste.

Now it's your turn. Don't
waste water. When you get
a chance fix those water
leaks, use more native
plants in your landscape
plans and install an inex-
pensive micro-irrigation
system for your trees,
shrubs and flowers. Your
grandchildren will thank
you for your efforts.

Enjoy life to the fullest
as you go along your way,
Arise and smell t*e roses
find something good to say.
The world is full of color
trees andflowers everywhere,
That all depend on water,
and fresh clean sweet smelling
air
So be that special someone,
who walks thru life each day,
Helping others to crack a smile
in your own special little way.

Enjoy the wonderful
spring colors and fra-
grances sent to us SPECIAL

Stay with me, here, I'm gonna put on my philosopher hat for
a few paragraphs. I've been working on a General Theory o:
People. It's still tentative, but this is what I have so far. I
think there are four different types of people. I call them
Makers, Changers, Drifters, and Destroyers. Most people
are a combination of types. Makers are just what they
sound like: they are driven to create things. They're the
quilters, the carpenters, the writers and the great cooks.
They're the guys who always are fixing up an old car, or fid-,
dling with their stock portfolio. Makers aren't happy unless:
they're working on building something.'

Changers are the advocates. They're the letter-to-the-editor
writers, they're the people who join causes, they're the peo-,
ple who teach school because they just know that they can
make a difference. They're the charity fundraisers, the fos-,
ter parents, the people who take in stray dogs, and the peo-
ple with the guts to stand up to corrupt officials. When faced
with injustice, they let loose with a rightous wrath. Their ,
purpose in life seems to be making things better, not just for
themselves, but for everybody
s does not come Then there are the Drifters, These are
g easy work but the happy people. Drifters don't have a
driving agenda, they're just sort of here.

%ion that .omae home and watch TV. They have the best
parties and bar-b-ques. They don't get

fect them, and they just sort of skip like

go to church, give to charity and work al
day; but they don't have a driving need of
iodorl Isaac Rubin any obvious sort.' They enjoy the status'
quo, and appreciate stability. They're just
happy to be here.

The Destroyers aren't necessarily bad, they just like to
shake things up. They're the gossips, the drama llamas, the
people who always seem to be starting something, just for
the sake of it. These are the kids who-put grasshoppers in
ant beds, just to see what happens. Destroyers don't do sta-
bility. They get too bored. They need constant stimulation,
preferably with some danger involved. They're the cops, _
firefighters, the emergency- room people, the girlfriend who
won't commit, the unfaithful spouse and that guy who can't'
seem to keep the same job for more than three months.
They need.a certain amount of chaos...for themselves, and
for everyone else. These people, if placed into a cushy, but
dull, situation, will find SOME way to get kicked out of it.
If the chaos isn't already there, Destroyers aren't averse to
making their own.

I'm mostly a Maker, with some Changey bits, I think. Which
is my explanation for why I'm going to stop writing this, and
go spend the.rest of my Sunday processing wool with two
fancy dog brushes, like my great-grandmother did. Unlike
her, I have a choice; I'm doing it the hard way because I
want to. I may even get a sweater out of it, eventually, going
by way of Robin Hood's barn.

merous charges stemming from an investigation into

arrested on April 30, 2009 for their involvement in a
residential burglary and a commercial burglary

ing care of property that'Was owned by hislate brithet
Mlichael Loose, who W s killed, in,an automobile crish

that someone had broken into thirty vehicles and
stolen the radiators out of the vehicles located in his
business storage area.

The next day, investigators received information from a
concerned citizen that had seen numerous radiators at
a Recycling Center in Lake City Upon receiving this
information, contact was made with Tri County Recy-
cling of Columbia County in Lake City and the busi-
ness owner cooperated with the investigation. It was
learned that on three different occasions Patrick
Reaves sold the radiators to the Recycling center and
received $2,177.60 for the radiators.

Hey Man, NAPA

Doesn't Have a

Drive-Through


4 ..'

On Monday, May 4, 2009, a single vehicle accident oc-
curred at the NAPA in Cross City While attempting to
park, a customer drove directly into the wall of the
parts store.

A water line was damaged, as was the wall of the
store. Several blocks in the wall were broken loose
from their mortar and slid back several inches on im-
pact. Surprizingly, the window above the blocks, was
unharmed. The car also suffered moderate damage.

The customers had driven to NAPA to purchase brake
parts'for their car.

'about helping the Dixie Dis-
trict Schools with this ex-
pensive, yet worthwhile pro-
gram. In 2008 the Founda-

year. Fifty percent of these
monies were in the form of
a grant form the Consor-
tium of Education Founda-
tions. Treasurer, .Carol
West, reports that the Foun-
dation is short of their goal
.by only $2300.00.

I have just returned home from visiting the replica of the
Vietnam Memorial Wall that has been in Apalachicola this.
week. We are fortunate to have a replica of the Three Ser-
vicemen Statute in our Veterans Memorial Plaza. The
combination of the "Wall and the Statute" has been a very
moving memorial to our Vietnam Veterans.: I could only
find the names for two Dixie County Servicemen who lost
their lives in Vibtnam--Samuel Calhoun Chavous, Jr. and
Thomas Berry Corbin. I've taken pictures of the wall
where their names are etched and of the plaza.

I just wanted their friends and families to know that they
have not been forgotten.

Diane Sanders Dodd


One of the very few
reasons I had any
respect for my
mother when I was
thirteen was
because she would
reach into the sink
with her bare
hands bare hands
and pick up that
lethal gunk and
drop it into the
garbage. To top
that, I saw her
reach into the wet
garbage bag and
fish around in
there looking for a
lost teaspoon.
Bare hands a kind
of mad courage.

"While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto
my God while I have any being."
Psalm 146:2

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ for saving my soul and most recently-
My Life. I am a living example of the miracles that only, He
can perform. As long.as there is breath within me I will
praise His holy name!'

I cannot find adequate words to express
the gratitude my family and I have for
EVERYONE who has prayed for me. We
know that God heard every prayer that
went up on my behalf and He answered
them.

For ALL the visits, phone calls, flowers, .. ..
gifts, cards, food, etc.- WE ARE SO
GRATEFUL! To everyone at the scene
of the accident- paramedics, concerned
citizens- WE THANK YOU FROM-THE
BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!

What a blessing it is to be from Dixie
County!

To my precious family, friends and
church families- I want to thank you for
all your help and support. I still have a
long journey ahead of me, but with family and friends like
you and the strength from our Lord, I will overcome!
Please continue to remember me in your prayers as I recov-
er at home.

I love you all and 'I thank my God upon
every remembrance.of you.' Philippians 1:3

Sincerely,

tat for Humanity of Suwan-
nee Valley, Inc. is the local
affiliate of Habitat for Hu-
manity International. Habi-'
tat is a not-for-profit, ecu-
menical Christian organiza-
tion, whose mission is to
eliminate substandard hous-
ing by building and renovat-
ing safe, decent, and afford-
able housing in partnership

Gods people in need.

decent houses with the help
of the homeowner (partner)
families. Habitat houses are

fordable no-interest loans.,

ments, homeowners invest
hundreds of hours of their
own labor sweat equity -

said to be found in Dixie
County, just north of (

all over Dixie. It is, how- .

Advocate reporter Brandi

Protect Your Pets
From Summer Heat!

Ov'rheating can be deadly
. for your pet! Here are some
tips to keep them safe dur-
ingdhot weather:

*aNever leave your animal
in a parked vehicle. Even on
a relatively cool day with
the windows open, a car can
quickly become a furnace.
Exercise your pet in the
cool of, the early morning or
evening hot asphalt or
pavement can burn their
paws. Extra precautions
should be taken with senior
dogs, short-nosed dogs, over-
weight dogs, and thick-coat-
ed dogs, as they can quickly
succumb to heat-stress.
Provide your pet with
plenty of fresh drinking wa-
teriand shade while they're
outdoors.

close to hunting season,"
said Steve Robbins, regional

Redneck Tech Warning, Scam Detected


S- M" by Eli Loy

"Satellites"



Tomorrow

,(and stuff)


Although the use of satellite technology has helped
to improve our lives on too many ways to count, there
are still a few problems with the concept.

One problem that has become glaringly obvious is
that they clutter u'p the area around the Earth and can
collide with one another, or even spacecraft. While
there are many tracking systems in place to help pre-
vent these collisions, the more debris we send up, the
more likely the disasters become.

-Secondly, say you've invented a great new piece of
equipment, and you want to send it into orbit. Well, by
the time you've gotten a rocket to insert it into orbit,
have found a nice piece of space to park it in, get
clearance to do so, and figure out what maneuvers the
ro6ket will have to to to get it there, your technology is
Already aging. Furthermore, once the rocket has been
launched, you can pretty much forget about updating
the hardware, Oh yes, and then there the money in-
volved in paying people to do all of this...

Well, a new idea that is being tossed around could
make satellites go the way of the LORAN. The bril-
liant idea: High-altitude, solar-powered, unmanned
aircraft. Sounds pretty far fetched? Not when you
think about it. The cost of putting one of these birds
"up would be substantially lower than going all the
way to orbit.

We're already using much lower altitude versions of
these craft for a variety of purposes, a lot of them be-
ing military So there's no need for extensive research,
,be,uase much of it has been done. What's more, the
person using such a craft could either fly it to new lo-
cations manually, or just let the autopilot handle the
flying, and keeping in one place of the craft.

,.,1 machines wear out. This could be accelerated by
thei Earth's atmosphere. So, the aircraft would need to -
be brought down occasionally for maintenance. Also,
understand that spacecraft are subjected to high-level
radiation, cosmic dust (moving at a thousand miles
per hour or more), and even collisions with space de-
bris. These, however, are usually not able to be re-
turned to the launchpad for repairs. So, with these
fiewv in-atmosphere craft, you would utilize them in
pairs. While one is on the ground being repaired and
refitted with upgraded technology, the other is. in the
air collecting data. Then the grounded aircraft goes up
and takes over it's airborne twin's duties, and the
other craft lands for maintenance and upgrades.

This is all based on an aircraft that is.being sent ot
Mars. As Mars has an atmosphere (albeit a very thin
one) the winged excursion robot will be able to fly
around Mars, whether on a preprogrammed course, or
:by-remote control, and take some really nifty photos.
Since the craft is designed for a thin atmosphere, it
should also work great in the upper layers of Earth's at-
mosphere.

for Western Union would have an address ending in
@tera.es? The correct answer is no. Western has their
own website, anyone conducting business for their
company via email would likely have an address end-
ing in @westernunion.com.

Second, look at the poor grammar, capitalization (in
some places Western Union isn't even capitalized),
and that wacky punctuation. Don't blame me for it, I
just transcribed it. A Western Union agent could be
seriously repremanded if ann actual letter sent to
someone actually receiving $850,000 contained so
many errors.

Third, the contact information. You reckon Western
Union has an 800 number? Well, you reckon right,
they do. Also, even if they didn't they'd at least pro-
vide a number that is in America. Now, just LOOK at
that email; you think a company like'Western Union
would settle for the email westein_un_ion77? Not
bloody likely. So, here we have three things that
should make you pretty suspicious.

Finally, the last, and most conclusive evidence point-
ing to this email being a scam is the final paragraph.
Not only does it start with the word "but" (a gramati-
cal no-no); but, more importantly requests that you
send them money so that they can "clear" your money
That's.where they try to get you. You send us $145.00
and we'll send you the $5,000 we have for you. Um, fel-
las? Why don't you just take the $145 out of the $5,000?
The answer is: They don't have the $5,000.

Amazingly (Horrifyingly?), people actually fall for
this. Can you believe it? Well, it happens. Really, all
you have to do to keep from being scammed from cons
like this is remember these two things: If- they want
you to send money, so they can send you money, they
are lying. Then there's this new (haha) saying going
around that goes something like this "If it sounds too
good to be true, then it probably is."

now able to apply for disaster as-
sistance with the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency

their SBA disaster loan applica-
tion and accept the completed
disaster loan applications. Any-
