According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife representative
Karen Parker, on July 30th,
at 3:54 pm, FWC got a re-
quest for assistance from
the Dixie County Sheriff's
Office to-help in the persuit
of a vehicle that was spot-
ted shooting a deer from the
road.


The deputy on scene chased.
the vehicle, which fled, and
when by the time he got it
stopped, FWC arrived and
assisted in the search for
the weapon. -The-weapon ..
was assumed "to be thrown
from the vehicle," according
to Parker.


Raymond Earl Brown, 37
and Jerry Ryan Fulford, 28,
were arrested and booked
into the Dix ie County jail at
8:59. According to Fish and
--.Wildlife, both will probably
be charged with unlawful
possession of a deer out of
season.


New law on all car sales: seller must file Notice of Sale


Selling your vehicle? If the
answer is, "yes," then you
must notify the Department
of Highway Safety and Mo-
tor Vehicles or your local
tax collector. Florida law
now requires individuals
selling a motor vehicle in
the Sunshine State to sub-
mit a Notice of Sale (Form
HSMV 82050) within 30 days
of a sale.

"The Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehi-
cles is pleased to see this im-
portant consumer protec-
tion provision incorporated
into law," said Director of
the Division of Motor Vehi-
cles Carl Ford. 'We have al-
ways recommended that
sellers provide us with a No-
tice of Sale, but the new re-
quirement means more peo-
ple will file the necessary
form and protect themselves
as a result."

Newer certificates of title
include a perforated portion


on the top back that sellers
can complete and mail to
the Department or local tax
collector after the sale of
the vehicle. Sellers also may
use a Notice of Sale (avail-
able online at
www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms
/BTR/82050:pdf) to provide
the required notification.
Sellers also can request a
copy of the form from a
DMV regional office or their
local tax collector's office.

How does this new require-
ment protect a seller? Filing
the form will remove the
seller's registration from the
vehicle, which may protect a
seller from possible liability
relating to the use of that
motor vehicle if the new
owner fails to transfer the
vehicle title. The form also
documents the sale and pro-
vides a receipt of the trans-
action.

The Department encourages
sellers to have buyers ac-


company them to a local of-
fice to have the vehicle title
properly transferred, and we
encourage sellers to main-
tain a copy of the Notice of
Sale (preferably notarized),
a copy of the certificate of
title or other type of trans-
action document evidencing
the sale.

To provide consumers with
useful information, the De-
partment recently posted
both a buyer's and seller's
guide online at
www.flhsmv.gov/Safe-
tyTips/Vehicles.htm. The
seller's guide provides pro-
tective measures one can
take before, during and after
a sale, while the buyer's
guide explains what to look
for when car shopping, de-
scribes buyers' rights, and
includes a list of questions
to ask. It also provides infor-
mation on Florida's new car
lemon law, warranties, titles
and much more.

pours and thunder. The hard-core musicians
would not be deterred, however, and continued to
practice throughout the day


According to a report by
the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, Claude King of Hud-
son, Florida was travelling
north on US 19 on July
31stin front of Davis Body
Shop when his right rear
tire blew.

This caused him to lose
control of his truck, which
swerved int and out of the


inside lane. The 23 foot
Airstream camper he was
towing flipped over, coming
to a stop on the side of the
road., No injuries were re-
ported and no charges were
made.

Damages to the truck and
trailer were estimated at
$20,000.

Sby Kathy McKinney

SI'n nothing if not honest, and I'll tell you
straight: I've got nothing important this week
to write about. Nothing. Nada. Not one thing. See, I'm go-
ing on the first real vacation I've had in a long, long time
and I'm sort of....no, I'm totally obsessed. So if you bore eas-
ily you may want to flip on over to the jail log or the classi-
fieds now. I hear there's a big yard sale coming up on Satur-
day across from Bank of America you might want to check
out. If not, carry on reading and I'll tell you why I'm so
scatterbrained this week.


I've been planning this trip for months
and months. I booked the hotel room
and plane tickets so long ago that
they're actually completely paid for. In
true,.nerd-like fashion, I've spent
hours and hours and researched all the
places to go, the things to see, the best
places to eat, the public transit system
and the bookstores. I have--no, I'm not
kidding--laminated mips made from
Google map printouts with all of the
places I'm going to go printed on them.
I know where my seats on the plane
are, and I have a little diagram with all
the other people who are going to the
same place that I am marked and
where they're sitting so that we can get
acquainted. We even have dinner
plans after the flight that we've careful-
ly made over countless emails.

On Friday, we're going to attempt to break the world's
record. I didn't know there was a knitting world record, ei-
ther, but hopefully we'll make a new one. There is going to
be a sock parade, a.sock museum, and of course, a sock hop.
Apparently, Portland is really big on coffee and microbrew
beer; there are pub & coffeehouse "crawls" every night. I
plan on spending part of Friday visiting the Chinese Gar-
den, and having tea at the authentic tea house. (I told you I
sort of over-researched this thing.) There's Powell's/book-
store, that takes upan'entire city block. There's even a place
called Voodoo Donuts that has (squee!) BACON doughnuts.
Yes, sir, doughnuts with bacon on top. Does life get any bet-
ter than that? Just imagine: three or four thousand moth-
ers, grandmothers, daughters, and
maybe a few brave-hearted men, all de-
ED CROSS scending.on one totally unprepared
I town, armed with knitting needles in
search of woolly-clean fun. Who would-
. n't be excited?

Not you? Still smirking and not con-
vinced?' It's not all socks, yarn, and knit-
ting, you know. I've never been to Ore-
gon, or the Pacific Northwest: I haven't
even ti'avelled out of the sweet tea and
grits belt in years. I haven't been on an
airplane since the late 90's, and I love to
fly I'm not one of those uber-sophisti-
cates who roll their annoying carry-on
luggage onboard, put on their dark sun-
glasses, stick their iPods in their ears,
open their laptops and ignore the world,
looking oh-so-cool until they land.


Ain't no tears in them beers!


I've got to give President Barack Obama credit for being
cagey On July 22, he put his foot in his mouth big time when
he said the Cambridge cops were "stupid" on the basis of
what little he knew about an incident wherein Sergeant Jim
Crowley arrested Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates.
Eight days later, he had both men over to the White House
for a little beer party on the lawn.

Vice President Joe Biden sat in, too, perhaps because he
found out the beer would be free.

In case you've been vacationing on another planet for the
past couple of weeks, Gates got home from an overseas trip
and couldn't find his house key, so he and another guy forced
their way in. A neighbor called the law, and when the patrol
car arrived, Gates was already inside and gave Sgt. Crowley
some lip when asked to verify the fact that he was in his own
home. The situation heated up to the point where Crowley
found it necessary to arrest Gates on charges of disorderly
conduct and take him downtown. The charge was later
dropped.

To put the matter to rest, Obama invited Gates and Crowley
over for a beer party, just to let everyone know that there
were no hard feelings on either side, and polish up his own
image in the process. And since Joe Biden has proven to be
something of an expert on the subject of foot-in-mouth dis-
ease, the VP was invited to sit in, too. (I was just kidding
about Biden crashing the party for the free beer.)

Now, if you want to know what they talked about, you'll
have to wait until some talk show host gets one of the prin-
ciples on the air. Obama wouldn't even let the in-house ABC-
TV crew record the conversation, and last I heard, nobody
was having much to say about what the discussion involved.

That being the case, permit me to speculate. I believe that
President Obama decided on the brand of beer, which is as it
should be. After all, he was the host, and he was paying
for...well, let's just say he was the one who invited the oth-
ers, with the possible exception of Biden, who might have
thought another white guy would have achieved an element
of racial balance...no, Biden wbuld have been more interest-
ed in the beer.

Anyway, I am told that the brand of beer was Bud Light, and
I will not speculate that Anheuser Busch might have provid-
ed it free of charge or even ponied up a few bucks in ex-
change for the exposure. No, indeed, Anheusqr Busch would-
n't "pony" anything. They're Clydesdale pep,,,s as anyone
who watches NFL football on TV knows., me:

Apparently, the whole thing came off pretty smoothly
Sergeant Crowley did not cite Professor Gates for DUI oh the
way home, so I guess everything's cool back in Cambridge,
and meanwhile President Obama comes off looking like a
real cool dude.

That's pretty good PR for dealing with an overblown inci-
dent involving a white cop and a black professor who was
one of Obama's personal friends, and I'm hoping this matter
can find its way out of the news cycle, now that it has been
resolved by as simple an expedient as a beer party on the
White House lawn.

That situation having been resolved, hopefully President
Obama will prove to be equally adroit at dealing with the
problems of greater importance that continue coming his
way, while bearing in mind that Islamic militants will not
drink beer with infidels.

Mr Prater:
I think this White
House photo says it
all--the "bad, racist
cop" slows down to
help handicapped Mr
Gates down the steps,
while his "compas-
sionate friend" Oba- ' I
ma ignores his plight
and marches on, un-
heeding and uncar-
ing, wrapped up in
his own coolness..--ed


Ah, but where am I going? I'll tell you,
but you have to promise not to laugh.
Everybody laughs. All of them. Oh,
sure, they promise not to and then
when I say "I'm going to a sock knitting convention in Port-
land, Oregon," they snicker. They giggle. Some even guffaw..
It's like they can't help it. See, you're doing it now. And you
promised. I'm so disappointed.

But no, really, it's a BIG DEAL. Just look it up on the inter-
net if you don't believe me: it's called Sock Summit '09. All
of the famous knitters will be there. (And yes, there are fa-
mous knitters. They have groupies. Really ) Still don't be-
lieve me? Google "The Yarn Harlot," or "Barbara Walker."
They're going to be there. Teaching classes. In person. I got
lucky and got into one of Cookie As (yes, she's famous, too)
all-day design classes. I'm going to try not to act like a 50's
teenager backstage at an Elvis concert, but I'm not making
any promises. I mean, after all, her book Sock Innovation is
one of the bibles of sockdom...she's cutting edge.

Ther-'s going to be.so much to do: there are people coming
from all over: Europe ahd Aust~alia, just for the classes and
the unique chance to shop for yarns from all over the world.

The Case Against

Intellectuals

by David Bozeman

To hear liberals talk, their
wisdom knows no bound-
aries - and yet they walk
among us. Turn on the TV
any hour and you'll hear
some smug commentator or
comedian (Bill Maher's lat-
est pronouncement: Sarah
Palin may well have a future
in presidential politics, giv-
en the stupidity of the
American people) deigning
to solve the world's prob-
lems, sure that their acade-
mically acquired brainpow-
er makes them uniquely
qualified and their pro-'
nouncements self-evident.

Intellectual snobbery festers
on the conservative side, as.
Swell (I'm talking about you,
Peggy Noonan), but it is one
of the left's defining traits.
Note that no Democrat need
ever defend his IQ. Barack
Obama, who had no idea
that his spiritual mentor of
20 years was spewing racist,
anti-American bile, coasted
to victory, in part, on the no-
tion of.his 'dazzling' intel-
lect.

Liberals have cornered the'
market on intellectual
bravado - Bill Clinton and
Barack Obama won because
they are brilliant; Adalai
Stevenson lost twice to
Eisenhower because he was
too brilliant to connect with
average voters - while con-
servatives merely reply that,
yes, Sarah Palin does so read
newspapers.


Intellectual elitism feeds on
itself and its tenets spill
over into mainstream
thought. Those who move
beyond academia into jour-
nalism, politics and govern-
ment, just by the sheer
weight of their conviction,
mold public opinion, often
before many are aware of
how society has been al-'
tered. It is not by accident
that the American economy
is now - as it has been, to
varying degrees, for much of
the past.century - under
the strict oversight of silver-
tongued bureaucrats like
Henry Waxman and Ed
Markey (of Cap and Trade
legislation) and Barney.
Frank ( overseeing Ameri-
can finance). If important
East Coast universities are
the repositories of all the
world's knowledge; then
Washington, DC is where it
is put into practice.

Liberals over-emphasize in-
tellect as a requisite for lead-
ership. The obvious but sel-
dom-spoken reply is that
nearly every bloody, murder-
ous movement of the 20th
Century, including, but not
limited to, Socialism; Com-
munism, various strains of
Fascism and even Nazism
.were all backed, if not cele-
brated (or even concocted)
by the intellectual classes.
While ordinary patriots
must justify every verbal
faux-pas, intellectual giants
such as Lillian Hellman and
Pulitzer Prize-winning re-
porter Walter Duranty (later
revealed to have been black-
mailed by Soviet Russia) are
celebrated, despite having
defended Stalin long after
his atrocities were revealed


s


- I'm.the goofball hick with my nose glued
to the window, fogging it all up by going
"oooh" and "ahhh" at all the little people
like ants in their little environmentally-
friendly ant cars, driving by trees that look like little bits of
-broccoli. I'm the one who actually reads the whole flight
magazine, who relishes the silly little peanuts and the little
plastic cup of Coke, and yes, I'll admit this...I actually pay
attention to the stewardess' emergency flight instructions at
the beginning. (I mean, hey, you never know. Stuff happens.)
I fly so rarely that to me, it's all big fun...and I don't hide it
very well. Think about it: we canfly! That's just amazing, it
really, really is, and I'll never get immune to the wonder of
air travel. I'm sorry, I've tried to learn to fake coolness, I:
just can't seem to manage it.

So while you're sitting at work, or chowing down with your
paper and Cypress burger on Wednesday, look up for a sec-
ond. See that airplane way up there, flying from Jack-
sonville to Houston? See that big nose squashed up flat
against the window in seat 17A? Go ahead, laugh at my- c
nerdiness and my sock convention. It's OK with me. I can
take it. You're just a.teeny little ant, anyway :)

to the world. Norman Mail-
er extolled the Soviet.Union,
and, lest one forget, Ward
Churchill, who dismissed
9/11 victims as "little Eich-
mans" was a university pro-
fessor (and, granted, an ex-:
treme example). Further- ,
more, nearly every 'enlight-
ened' theory of social order
that shocks modern sensibil-
ities was advanced by, you
guessed it, the intellectual
classes.

Abortion and birth control,
for instance, revered by the
best and the brightest as sa-
cred rights, were originally
touted as methods of weed-
ing out society's 'unfit' "
groups and races.

Author Ayn Rand (Atlas
Shrugged) wrote extensively
on the possibilities and fail-
ures of intellectual activism:
" [Intellectuals hold] the po-
tential of being either the
most productive or the most
parasitical of all social
groups." She also wrote'
that,"From the early 19th
Century on, American intel-
lectuals, with rare excep--
tions, were the humbly obe-
dient followers of European
philosophy, which had en-
tered its age of decadence."

Contrary to Bill Maher's
ridiculous comment, wis-
dom does lie with the Ameri-
can, people, which is why
Obama-care is teetering on
the brink of defeat. One
need not. suffer through the
.tedious details to smell a

tual class but on the com-
mon sense of average citi-
zens.

Nothing here is written to
equate Obama-cate with any
of the aforementioned atroc-
ities. Simply, intellectual
bravado is, at best, meaning-
less, and, at worst, danger-
ous without common sense,
temperament and perspec-
tive. The great figures who
secured freedom and justice
for America, while undoubt-
edly bright, are revered by
history for their courage,
compassion and vision,
among other traits. The'
Obama Administration,-de-
spite all the bouquets to his '
intellect, will ultimately be
judged not by his silky ora-
tion but by his impact on
America.

In the words of the very
wise (albeit fictional) For-
rest Gump, "Stupid is as stu-
pid does."

Trail tcJers

By Bonnie Wilson

As the heat index continues
to rise, Dusty and I find a lot
of excuses to seek shelter
from the hot sun. Today I
weathered the heat to give
him a much-needed bath. As
I lather the shampoo upon
his back I am wishing for a
cooler day. Dusty must have
read my thoughts because
he shakes his whole body
like a dog and I am suddenly
cooler indeed. It seems he
wants me to have a bath too.
What's
that famil-
iar saying
"if you
can't beat
them, join
them"! It
is one ,
amazing
way to bet
the heat. I
suddenly
feel like a
child and full of energy
This is good for both of us
as we play together with the
water hose. He takes a drink
of water from the hose and
he places his wet head on
my shoulder. Ahh you might
say, how sweet he is to his
master. Sweet indeed until
he opens his mouth and
more water trails down my
neck and back. He's really
into this game now and I am
soaking wet!

He's such a character today
and it makes me long for
our trail rides in our beauti-
ful Florida forest. One that
comes to mind today is the
Goethe State Forest Trails.
It winds for 100 miles
through three tracts of
nearly 50,000-acre state for-
est. You can ride through
amazing pine plantations
and old growth longleaf

pine forest. There is a large
equestrian campground at
the Tidewater trailhead off
CR 337, northwest of Dun-
nellon, and trailheads at
Apex and Black Prong.
Threading through pine flat-
woods around cypress
domes, the trail system
ranges from loops of 2.5
miles to 10.5 miles. At Apex,
which is my favorite of the
tracts because of its old-
growth longleaf pines, there
are five different loop trails,
from 4.5 miles to 11.7 miles.

At Black Prong, where vast
forests have been mowed
down for
restoration of
the forest back
to a sandhill
habitat, there
are three
marked trails,
from 3 to 10
miles in
length. There
is so much to
choose from.
One would
think that they are at an
equestrian smorgasbord!
Dusty and I along with our
Levy County Horse Club
members have had an in-
credible time each time that
we have been out on these
trails. What an adventure
we have had. I love spending
a few days camping at Tide-
water to unwind and relax.

My husband, Dave, and I
have always enjoyed camp-
ing out with the club mem-
bers. It truly is an escape
from your normal routine of
work and home. An incredi-
ble journey through one of
Florida's most beautiful for-
est imaginable. Come see for
yourself,

Until next time........Happy
trails!


scrub pythons, green ana-
condas and Nile monitor
lizards. It is unlawful to al-.
low one to escape or to re-
lease one into the wild.

"The capture of this large
python shows us how well
these snakes can thrive in
the wild and create a dan-
gerous situation after ille-
gal release or escape," said
FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto. "It also illustrates
why the FWC is partnering
with other agencies to im-
'plement python control:
measures in South Florida.
We will continue to push for
additional measures to con-
trol the spread of Burmese
pythons in the Everglades
where'they are reproducing
in large numbers."

On July 17, the FWC
launched a permit program,
allowing reptile experts to
capture and euthanize
Burmese pythons on state-
managed lands around the
Everglades. To date, seven
permits have been issued
Sand five pythons have been
captured. Several more per-,
mits will be issued in the
coming weeks. The permit
holders must collect data on
captured pythons and sub-
mit that information to the
FWC.

The program continues un-
til Oct. 31, at which time the
FWC will analyze the data
and determine if the pro-
gram should be extended or
expanded.


17-foot Burmese python
caught in Okeephobee County

A 17-foot-2-inch Burmese
python was caught and de-
stroyed on private property
in Okeechobee County
Thursday afternoon. The
male snake weighed 207
pounds, and measured 26
inches in diameter. Its stom-
ach contents were exam-
ined, but nothing identifi-
able was found inside.

Officers with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC)
scanned the python but did
not find a microchip. As.a
Reptile of Concern,
Burmese pythons must be
licensed by FWC's Captive
Wildlife Section and im-
planted with a microchip to
be kept as a pet.

FWC worked with the Flori-
da Legislature and the rep-
tile industry to establish
and implement tighter re-
strictions in 2007 to help'
prevent the escape or re-
lease of these exotic
species. The new rule re-
quires an annual $100 li-
cense and mandatory
caging requirements. In ad-
dition, Burmese pythons
more than,2 inches in diam-
eter must be implanted with
a microchip that identifies
the origin of the animal.
This rule applies to all Rep-
tiles of Concern, which in-.

dian pythons, reticulated
pythdns, African rock

fishing quilts and working on special items to be shown dur-
ing their November 13 and 14 quilt show. It is anticipated
that there will be over 150 quilts on display for the public to
view. And viewer's will have a choice of selecting the one
quilt that is most outstanding during the show.

Springhouse has been so lucky to have been able to have
their own meeting and working building space since 2003.
It is located west of Trenton and of course requires mainte-
nance,,especially yard work. Springhouse members are es-
pecially grateful to the Lancaster Work Team that main-
tains the beauty of the yard. Springhouse is a not-for-profit
organization and members support the guild by hard work
and donations. The Lancaster Work Team has been a won-
derful source of support and help to the guild. We are truly
grateful to them for their hard, hot work at the Springhouse
location. Springhouse enjoys a membership of, approxi-
mately 100 members.

The next regular meeting of Springhouse will be on Tues-

FWC asks anglers to help saltwater anglers.These sur-

gather reef fish data

Biologists with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
(FWRI) request angler assis-
tance with a research project
focusing on red snapper and
other reef fish on Florida's
Gulf Coast. This project will
provide fisheries researchers
and managers with much of
the catch-and-release sur-
vivai information they need
for assessing reef fish stocks.-

Reef fish include a variety of
snapper and grouper species
commonly targeted by recre-
ational anglers. Anglers can-
contribute to reef fish re- .
search by participating in
angler surveys. They also
can help by reporting tagged
fish to the Angler Tag Returr
Hotline at 800-367-4461.

Anglers can also e-mail their
name and address to Fish-
Stats@MyFWC.com to obtain
a postage-paid survey card in
the mail. Downloadable data
sheets are also available on
the FWRI Web site at
http://research.MyFWC.com/
features/view_article.asp?id=
32671.

Additionally, each month
FWRI will mail surveys to a
random sample of licensed:


anglers who target reef fish.
Survey questions include
when and how often anglers
fish, as well as the type and
number of fish they harvest
or release. Biologists request'
that anglers respond to the
survey, even if they are not
fishing for reef fish .

FWRI biologists are tagging
and releasing reef fish back
into the wild to evaluate the
survival of released fish. For
this project, biologists are
placing an orange tagi ear
the dorsal fin of the fish.
Each tag has a unique num-
ber printed on the side.
When anglers catch a fish
with one of these tags, they
should call the Angler Tag
Return Hotline. Biologists
would like to know the
species of fish, tag number,
date and time of capture,
where the fish was caught,
fish length, type of bait used
and whether the fish was
kept or released. If the fish is
released, anglers should
leave the tag in the fish so bi-
ologists can continue to col-
lect data. Receiving this in-
formation is, important for
the success of this project.
Anglers will receive a token
of appreciation for partici-
pating in this study.For more

search, visit http://re-
search.MyFWC.com.

A GRADUATION
TRIP TO REMEMBER

Boungiorno; good day. It's
graduation time and I have
recently returned from Italy
with my twin grandsons,
Joshua and Tony Ash who
have now reached that pas-
sage in their lives. There,
we toured a land steeped in
history and culture, one
which gave birth to that
great period in history
know as the Italian Renais-
sance.

Arriving in Venice, we were
ushered into the city via wa-
ter taxi, where we learned
that the city has a history
stretching back to the fall of
the Roman Empire. Origi-
nally a swampy, mosquito
laden, marshland, the city
was constructed atop mil-
lions of pilings that were
driven into that marshy bot-
tom, which accounts for the
fact that many of the build-
ings and streets are in a
state of disrepair due to the
fact that their foundations
are constantly shifting.

As our gondpla driver
threaded his way through
one of the back streets of
that notorious metropolis,
we learned that the city was
built as a place of refuge
from the "barbarian hordes"
that vandalized much of the
fallen empire that had once
been Rome's. Cornering a
number of world markets,
Venicia, was transformed
into one of the richest inde-
pendent city states that ever
existed in medieval times.

>From Venice, we traveled
to Florence where we were
surrounded by some of, the
world's greatest art master-
pieces. Home to Michelange-
lo, that city showcases such
sculpture as Cellini's
Perseus holding thd head of
Medusa, the awe inspiring,
"Rape of.the Sabine
Women," Ghiberti's spectac-
ular, "Gates of Paradise,"


and Donatello's, soul render-
ing, sculpture of Mary Mag-
dalene.

Then on to Pisa where the
boys and I1di'doour best to set
aright the Leaning Tower,
but alasailU in vain. As-
cending the spine of the
Apennine mountains, we
then descended into the city
of Roma, where on the roof
of our hotel, which was lo-
cated a mere two blocks
from the ancient Coliseum,
we enjoyed the cool breeze
wafting across the clear wa-
ters of the Ionian sea. That
evening, as we neared that.
ancient relic, in our minds
we could hear the clash of
sword on trident and the
sound of hungry lions as
they lunged to rid the em-
pire of a hated minority
called, Christians.

Strolling through the Fo-
rum, we imagined that we
could hear the words of
Julius Caesar as he stared
into the eyes of his dear
friend; "Et Te Brute!" Stop-
ping for awhile, at the for-
mer dwelling of Caesar Au-
gustus, we then trekked on
to one of the, world's oldest,
still standing, domed struc-
tures, the Pantheon. From
there we meandered
through a narrow street to
the scene of Trivi Fountain,
and each of us, tossed a coin
over our shoulder to ensure
that some day, "We shall re-
turn!"

At the Vatican, we were
awestruck by the shear size
of St. Peter's Cathedral and
there we learned that
Michelangelo played a major
role in its construction, not
only designing the dome for
that magnificent structure,
but also contributing his
only signed sculpture, the
Pieta, not to mention his
masterpiece which he paint-
ed on the ceiling of the Sis-
tine Chapel.

Leaving Rome, we journeyed
to Assai and then on to Pom-
peii, where in 79A.D. a colos-
sus named Vesuvius erupted
with such a force as to bury
the entire city Wandering
through that ancient, en-
tombed metropolis, we visit-
ed the home of an aristo-
crat, an early forerunner of
our present-day shopping
malls, a Roman public bath,
and even a house of ill-re-
pute!

FISHER'S ASTROLOGY
AUGUST 2009

By J. T Fisher

Aries
Several astrological events "rev"
your engine this month, begin-
ning with a lunar eclipse on the
5th in Aquarius. Although it
may be difficult, use this moon
for quiet reflection and plan-
ning. By the 20th, when the new
moon in Leo arrives, you will be
ready for socializing and per-
haps new love. Try to have fun
in moderation, Aries!

Taurus
The lunar eclipse on the 5th in
Aquarius puts the emphasis on
your career, Taurus. In fact, luck
at work seems to be a theme for
the month. Your communication
skills are sharp and people lis-
ten. Mercury is moving in com-
patible Virgo most of the month,
creating a wonderful place for
you socially and romantically!-


Gemini
Events occur quickly this
month, and the action will be to
your liking! First, a lunar
eclipse on the 5th in fellow air
sign Aquarius sets the stage. By
the 20th when the new moon is
in Leo, you may be gasping from
all the excitement. Don't short-
change your health or miss op-
portunities to race nonstop in
high gear!

Cancer
Your love life gets a boost this
month while Venus is in your
sign through the 25th, Cancer!
Make plans to spend time with
that special someone or be open
to new love coming your way.
You are confident and creative
when a lunar eclipse occurs on
the 5th in Aquarius. Think posi-
tively and dreams may come
true.

Leo
The full moon and lunar eclipse
on the 5th have a big effect on
every Leo's existing relation-
ships. The new moon in your
sign on the 20th offers the major


impact though! Opportunities
for change may present them-
selves. August is fill of activity
and fun as well, and your spirit
is renewed for the year ahead!
Virgo
'Early in the month you feel the
need for rest and relaxation, es-
pecially around the lunar
eclipse in Aquarius on the 5th.
Take care of yourself! Your rul-
ing sign, Mercury, moves into
Virgo on the 2nd, giving you per-
sonality plus effective communi-
cation. As the sun moves into
your sign on the 23rd, you are
re-energized.

Libra
Another eclipse occurs this
month on the 5th in Aquarius.
This lunar eclipse affords per-
sonal insight and strolig cre-
ative abilities. Socially, you will
be in demand, and you respond
with your usual charm and
grace. Between the new moon in
Leo on the 20th and the end of
the month, plan your own party.
Celebrate!


Scorpio
You get fresh creative ideas from
Venus' transit of Cancer begin-
ning on the 2nd. Your confi-
dence is also especially strong
throughout the month. A busy
work schedule is aided by the
new moon in Leo on the 20th.
You should finish any projects
with assurance around this
moon, Scorpio!

Sagittarius
Those of you with an adventur-
ous spirit should take advantage
of a perfect month to find that
un-traveled trail. A lunar eclipse
in Aquarius on the 5th gives you
a new perspective on a perplex-
ing situation. By the 20th's new
moon in fellow fire sign, Leo,
you should have your bags
packed and be on your way!

Capricorn
This month may be the best all
year for a vacation, Capricorn.
Even weekend getaw ' liould
be fun, if not theraijlhiti4 al i '
Mercury in Virgo favors ffavel i
Emotional issues may surface
around the lunar eclipse on the


5th but you will remain ground-
ed and calm. You have good luck
with investments around the
new moon in Leo on the 20th!

Aquarius
A situation that began last
month emerges in a more
prominent way: possibly a new
romance or even a career oppor-
tunity Focus on yourself around
the lunar eclipse in your sign on
the 5th. August promises excite-
ment socially and you will be so
charming. A positive, upbeat at-
titude is all you need to bring to
the party!

Pisces

You've heard this month re-
ferred to as the dog days of Au-
gust, Pisces, but there will be
way too much energy flowing
for you to be lethargic. Change
in some area of your life may
occur but your intuition and
emotional depth will help you
understand the circumstances
clearly Stay true to your belief
system.

Expand your horizons with freshwater
fishes, turtles, frogs, crayfish and
mollusks
Although Florida.requires anyone between the ages of 16 and
65 to purchase a recreational freshwater fishing license, there
are animals you can take rcreationally, without a license,
from fresh water for consumption or to use as bait, provided
you know and follow the rules.
Obtaining a recreational freshwater fishing license is easy
-just call 888-FISH
FLORIDA, or visit
MyFWC.comlLicense.
The license is a great
value.
SHowever, what about
taking turtles; frogs;
crustaceans, such as
crayfish and grass

such as mussels and

day for personal use. dd not need a fishing
license. However, it is
very important to understand that specific regulations apply.
People must have a commercial fishing license or Class III
exhibition and sale license to sell some of these species.
Recent reports of large harvests of several species of fresh-
water turtles, promoted by demand in Asian and other foreign
markets, caused'the Florida Fish and'Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) to prohibit all commercial take or sale of
wild native freshwater turtles, of which there are 18 species
in Florida. State law prohibits harvesting alligator snapping
turtles and regular snapping turtles, Barbour's and Escambia
map turtles, and cooters. Other freshwater turtles (chiefly
softshell turtles) are restricted to one per person per day
for personal use. They are typically caught by hand, dip net,
minnow seine or baited hook and used for human consump-
tion. These flattened looking turtles with leathery shells can
inflict a painful bite and have sharp claws, so be careful if you
choose to harvest one.
Red-eared sliders are a common nonnative freshwater tur-
tle in Florida's waters, but people cannot catch them to keep
as pets. While red-eared sliders can betaken and used for
human consumption, once captured, they cannot be released
back into Florida's waters.


Among the most common frogs taken foi consumption
are pig frogs and bullfrogs. There are no seasons, bag or
size limits. Most people use gigs at night to hunt them.
(Some specific areas prohibit this, so check the local regu-
lations.) Sale of frogs or frog legs requires a commercial
fishing license.
Mollusks, which include mussels and clams, are filter
feeders and live on or in the sand at the bottom of riv-
ers and lakes. Certain species of freshwater mussels may
be collected for personal use. However, federal laws protect
seven Florida mussel species that occur from the Suwannee
River system north and west throughout the Panhandle.
Possessing or disturbing these protected species can result
in substantial penalties, so be sure to do your research first.
The daily bag limit for unprotected mussels, such as Florida.

Florida; many are imperiled aiindmay not' be taken. However,
there are no seasons, gear, bag or size limits on the more
abundant "crawdads." These critters look like little lobsters
and are sometimes taken with small traps or dip nets, for use
as bait or for consumption in things such as Cajun stews or
Creole recipes. Red swamp and white river crayfish are the
most common species ised for these purposes. They are found
in ditches and vegetated areas with clear water and often
around algae-covered rocks. Traps are baited with abundant
amounts of fresh or frozen fish parts, not spoiled. Leaving the
trap overnight is normally important, but remember to tag it
with your name and address and be sure it is placed legally
and safely. Red swamp and white river crayfish are listed as
conditional species, so while they may be personally used for
human consumption, they may not be kept alive or sold with-
out special permits.
Getting outdoors and learning about nature-is a great
way to have fun, get exercise and get away from the stress

Calling All Creative

Home Bakers:
Step Up to the Martha
White Muffin Mix
ChallengeTM

NASHVILLE , Tenn. (Aug. 1,
2009) - What does a Strawberry
Streusel Cheesecake have in
common with Chocolate Chip
Coconut Bars and a Country
Cinnamon Apple Clafouti?
These award-winning original
dishes were inspired and creat-
ed with Martha Whiteg muffin
mixes and took top honors in
the Martha White Muffin Mix
ChallengeTM.

The inaugural recipe contest
was so successful that the pre-
mier baking company is an-.
nouncing the call for entries for
the second annual Martha
White Muffin Mix Challenge.
This year's challenge features
more prizes for the winning
recipes and consumers who vote
online. The starting point is the
same: create an original recipe
utilizing at least one of the 19
delicious varieties of Martha
White muffin mixes.

"We realize home bakers create
wonderful dishes every day that
are just as imaginative as they
are delicious, but we were
amazed by the creativity and
quality of the recipes submitted
in the first Muffin Mix Chal-
lenge," said Martha White bak-
ing expert Linda Carman. "We
saw everything from casseroles
to cobblers and tarts to tiramis-
us. The challenge of using muf-
fin mixes to create a unique
dish brought out the best in
home bakers all over the coun-
try, and we can't wait to see
what they come up with this
year."
The Martha White Muffin Mix
Challenge officially began on
Aug. 1 and will end on Dec. 31,
2009. You can enter by mail,
email or submitting an entry
online. Each original recipe
will be initially judged on five
evenly-weighted criteria: taste,
creativity, appetizing appear-
ance, ease of preparation and
appropriate use of Martha
White productss. After five fi-
nalists have been determined,
online voting at
www.marthawhite.com will help
decide the Grand Prize winner.

The Grand Prize winner will re-
ceive $5,000 and a Martha White
gift basket, while the four run-
ners up will receive $1,000 and a
Martha White gift basket. For


official rules and entry informa-
tion, visit
www.marthawhite.com.

To get your creative juices flow-
ing, think of ways to use muffin
mix as a shortcut to make a de-
licious loaf of bread with your
favorite ingredients. As an in-
spiration, try Cinnamon Ba-
nana Nut Breakfast Bread, a
Hearty loaf made by adding
oats, raisins and applesauce to
Martha White Banana Nut Muf-
fin Mix. It's great for breakfast
served.with fruit and yogurt,
and can be cooked ahead of
time since quick loaves usually
taste and slice better the day af-
ter baking.
Another way to come up with
your own recipe is to start with
the star ingredient. Go ahead
and bake your favorite variety
of Martha White muffins, then
create a dish with the finished
product. Our Wildberry Muffin
Trifles are a perfect example.
Add a little butter, sugar and an
egg to the muffinmix, bake the
muffins, and slice in half when
cooled. Then sprinkle with a
little orange juice and layer
with strawberries and instant
pudding - pretty, delicious and
easy enough to cook with kids.

the first Martha White Muffin
Mix Challenge and the recipes
featured, go to

What a Mighty God we
serve. We had a wonderful
-day at Faith today and if you.
missed it, you truly missed a
blessing. The weather was
gorgeous, our crowd was
large, we had many visitors
and one joined our church
family It was just a fabulous
day The special music in
the morning service was
done by the Brittons as they
-sang "God on the Mountain"
and blessed our hearts. In
the evening service, Bro.
Terry sang "He Touched Me"
and played the guitar. It was
outstanding.
I-
Many of our folks were well
enough to be taken off the
prayer list and just a few
needed to be added. We
thank God for His healing
hand.

Last Wednesday night.we
started a new program for
the little ones, called Mis-
sion Kids. We encourage
Syou to come out each
Wednesday night and bring
the little ones to take part in
this new program. The par-
ents are always invited to
!tay for prayer meeting
while the little ones are in
the children's program. God
loves you and looks for you
On Wednesday night as well
;as on Sunday Let's not let
Him down.

There's a sign-up sheet on
the bulletin board in the
back hallway for anyone
who feels that God is calling
them to take an office in the
church. That time is ap-
proaching us real soon and
we urge you to pray about it


0050


and see if there is anything
you feel led to do. We need
teachers, committee mem-
bers, and just all sorts of of-
fices need to be filled. Bro.
Jim Fisher will be approach-
ing you and asking about
whether you can take an of-
fice. Pray about this and get
with Bro. Jim if God's call-
ing you to serve. God will
bless you for anything you
do.

Remember this week to
pray for the sick, the be-
reaved and especially the
lost. We'll be looking for you
this coming week for Prayer
Meeting, Sunday School and
Church. Until we meet
again, we will be praying
that God will keep you safe,
happy and healthy.

God was working last week
in the lives of our youth
That went to the Youth Con-

"Uncontrolled, the

hunger and thirst after

God may become an

obstacle, cutting off


the soul from


1 what it

desires.


If a man would travel

far along the mystic

road, he must learn to

desire God intensely

but in stillness,
passively and yet with

all his heart and mind

and strength."

Thursday August 6, 2009


by Art Wyckoff


I hope you have taken the opportunity to take a stroll outside of your
own backyard lately. The wildflowers are beaming wherever you go, the
butterflies are fluttering in abundance and the trees are loving life due to
the almost daily showers. We are in a most fortunate location of our
country to be receiving these showers of blessings that sustains and
maintains life. PTL
Lots of rain has presented a few problems to deal with, like mildew, fun-
gus, splitting of some fruits and vegetables, early ripening and an in-
crease in the weed population. Guess what also increase with so much
rain?----INSECT PESTS! Once again, I encourage each and every one of
you to find your comfort zone and tolerance level with the unwanted crit-
ters. It may require you to get out of your lazy boy and check your gar-
den more frequently these rainy days, but it will be worth the effort to
nip the problems in the bud. Keep the maladies under control with envi-
ronmentally friendly methods like non-perfumed and bio-degradable
soaps. These soaps work well on aphids, white flies and other flying in-
sects and do not harm the surroundings or your water supply
Don't forget to apply a second dose of the liquid solution onto the affected
plants 10-12 days after the first to kill the new born larvae. NEEM oil and
commercial insecticidal soaps also work well to control pests that like to
attack your crepe myrtles and fruit trees this time of year. When it -
comes to the weeds, well, the most time consuming method is hand pick-
ing, however, it ie the most efficient providing you get the wholeroot sys-
tem as you extract them.
If you are overwhelmed by the weeds, try to keep them under control by
at least not letting them go to seed and spreading the plague! In a last
ditch effort to do your part as a conservationist, spray a citrus or vinegar
based solution on the weeds during the hottest part of the day and watch
the rascals turn brown and shrivel up. (Careful not to spray your flowers
as they will do the same!)
Based on personal experience, as your flower garden and landscape ma-
tures, it attracts more and more wildlife to your yard. More flowers =
more butterflies, more butterflies = more caterpillars, more caterpillars
= more birds, more birds = less insects! This is called a balance of nature
as the ecological food chain develops.
If you are really looking for work to do in your little bit of heaven on
earth, trim the dead heads off of your crepe myrtles to see if they will
produce a second flush of color this year. Prune your roses carefully;
trim the blackened fungus filled leaves and discard them in the trash. Cut
back the lantana, plumbego and hedges to thicken them and make them
look fuller. At any rate, THINK POSITIVE! Enjoy your surroundings and
appreciate life as you walk in YOUR garden.

Trouble brewing in paradise?


Jeff Tucker of Steinhatchee sent in this photo that he took between Stein-
hatchee and Cross City last week. He says that it appeared to be a tornado
forming over Cross City.

Mr. Tucker is an avid photographer, and was the DCHS yanahi photogra-
pher throughout high school.' He says, "My camera is like American Ex-
press, I never leave home without it, you ust don't know what you will run
into or encounter."
Look for more of Mr. Tucker's interesting photographs in the Advocate in
the future!
