Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


Sentiment doesn't justify bad legislation

Unless you have a summer cottage on another planet, you
have heard that Senator Edward Kennedy died last week of
brain cancer. There have been no end of eulogies for the
late senator, anid also some strident comments from people
who could find nothing to like about the man or what he
did.while occupying a position of considerable influence in
our government.

I shall not comment on Senator Kennedy at this point, how-
ever I would like to offer some observations about how he is
being remembered by his political cronies on the far left.

We all know that President Obama's effort to nationalize
,health care has'met with fierce opposition fi'om the general
public. The main reason for this is that we have had ample
opportunity to evaluate how socialized medicine has ,
worked in countries that have tried it. Canadians who can
afford it will come here to get treatment they either can't
get at home or can't endure the months they'd have to wait
- even if it was available.

The British have been struggling with a government-run
public health program since the end of World War II, and of
course Cuba's system,.set up by Communist dictator Fidel
Castro, is a mess, despite what visiting Hollywood celebri-
ties might tell us.

Thanks to the Internet, FOX News,-and a significant num-
ber of small town newspapers, Ameiricans have been en-
abled to see through the smoke and mirrors and learn-
about how expensive and inefficient "free" government-run
health care actually is. This is why there is so little support
for it among the general public. Even though most Ameri-
cans rightly perceive that the country's health care system
needs some repair work, they're not willing to switch what
we have for something far worse.

This, of course, is why so many of the senators and repre-
sentatives that Obama has sent out to hawk his plan during
the summer recess are being met by unfriendly crowds.
Some congressional Democrats have actually refused to
participate in these "Town Hall" meetings.

For the President and others most dedicated to getting his
health package passed, Senator Kennedy's death occurred
at a most convenient time. I have heard things like, "Oh,
but now we simply have to pass the health care bill...after
all,/Senator Kennedy supported it!"

No doubt he did, and no doubt he would have voted for it.
But Ted Kennedy would have supported any legislation
- backed by a liberal Democrat in the White House. It's still a
lousy piece of legislation, based on what we've been able to
learn about it.

That rationale takes us back to 1968, when the controversial
"open housing" (or "fair housing") legislation was passed.
lDr. Martin Luther King had recently been shot and killed,
and there was no doubt-that Dr. King was supportive of
open housing. However it was still bad legislation. While it
achieved a mostly superficial objective of the civil rights
movement, it grossly infringed on the concept of property
ownership. But it was passed because, owing to Dr. King's
death, we "had to do it."

Calling Obamna's health care bill a tribute to Ted Kennedy,
or maybe even putting his name on it, is more of the same
old con game. There will no doubt be streets, schools and
such named after the senator, just as there have been for Dr.
King. That should suffice.

There is no reason to pass a bill that apparently no one has
read or understands in the first place, particularly given its
projected costs and potential for further government en-
croachment on free enterprise and individual freedoms.
Senator Kennedy's death in no way changes these facts.

Mr Prater:
I think it would be only fair to take all of those "streets,
schools and such." that are going to inevitably be named after
Ted Kennedy and rename them all "Mary Jo Kopechne"
street, school, or whatever That poor dead girl who never got
a life is the one who needs remembrances, not the dirty old
man who killed her and then went back to his party.--Ed

son tickets already from the last Sea World fi-

would be a fairly inexpensive, easy birthday


Like the guy on the Blue Collar Comedy tour says, I was
wroooong.

I've always said that if you're going to make a complete fool
of yourself, you might as well do it in front of a stadium full
of people--oh wait, no. I didn't say that, I DID that. Georgia
and her friend Lena were running down the steps, trying to
get us a seat in the coveted Shamu "splash" zone, when I
stepped down onto a wet, slippery spot and busted my
behind. Well, not my behind, actually, because I caught my-
self on the convenient hand railing, but my hand wasn't pre-
pared for that sort of job and it sort of twist-
ed in a bad, unpleasant sort of way Nice peo- Mmm
ple all around me started asking me if I was
all right and a team of people with Shamu Master
name badges rushed over, more to make sure HOW.
that I wasn't intent on suing Shamu and tak-
ing all his bait fish than out of any actual How e
concern for me.

I was red-faced and embarrassed as heck...you
know how your brain does that? It's just go-
ing over and over ohmygodohmygod I can't believe I busted
my butt in front of 5,000 people ...ohmygodlamanabsoluteid--
iot and you sort of go a little blind because all of your blood
rushes in front of your eyes? Yeah, it was sort of like that.
So I said I was fine, even though it was obvious I wasn't, re-
. ally, and we finally found a spot and sat down. It became ap-
parent that I had a real boo-boo when the embarrassment
adrenaline shut off and the ouchie set in. It started to swell
so badly while we were watching the show that I had to take
my watch off...and I like to wear a large man's watch. Yeah,
it was that bad.

But was I going to give in an do what any reasonable human
being would have done and go home? Oh, heck no. I was
there, I had my ticket, and I was going to do the whole dan-
ged park. Which I did, supported by some ice from the nice
guy at the First Aid station and a bottle of Advil I had
thoughtfully brought along in my purse. We finished out the
day and had a great time. Doug offered to drive home but
hard-headed me insisted on doing it myself, one-handed. I
got my Paramedic-brother-in-law Clay to Ace bandage it up
for me when I got home and figured I'd be fine.

Sunstein:

Plunging the

Agricultural

Industry into a

Litigation Abyss

By Nathan Paul Mehrens

One of the most effective
ways a President influences
public policy and law in a
lasting manner is through,
regulatory actions taken by
the federal government. It's
not an area that typically
garners substantial media
attention because regulatory
work is generally a highly
technical matter performed
by policy wonks largely un-
known to the public.

Yet, despite their general ob-
scurity, federal regulations
have a substantial impact on
virtually every facet of soci-
ety And the personnel who
oversee the regulatory
process have far greater in-
fluence than most would
imagine.

Chief among the personnel
who oversee the regulatory
process is the administrator
of an unheralded office
within the White House's Of-
fice of Management and
Budget called the Office of
Information and Regulatory
Affairs (OIRA). The admin-
istrator is also known as the
"Regulatory Czar." Earlier
this year the President nom-
inated Cass Sunstein to run
this office. Sunstein's nomi-
nation is now pending be-
fore the full Senate. A vote
on his nomination is expect-
ed next week.

Unless you work on regula-


tory matters involving the
federal, government you are
probably not aware that
OIRA exists. However, the
office has tremendous influ-
ence on the number and
scope of regulations that
come out of the various fed-
eral agencies. The office acts
as the gatekeeper vetting
both final regulations that
become law as well as pro-
posed regulations.

Given the importance of
this office to the regulatory
process, the views of its ad- '
ministrator are highly im-
portant. Mr. Sunstein in his
Senate hearing gave verbal
deference to the rule of law
saying that his personal
views are not relevant be-
cause he would "follow the
law."

This is all well and fine as
long as the person adminis-
tering the office is in a situa-
tion where there is mandato-
ry legal authority he is re-
quired to obey Unfortunate-
ly, that is not often the case,
because many appointees --
like Sunstein -- are in posi-
tions where they are actual-
ly creating law through the
regulations they promul-
gate.

This is where personal
views come into play.

Some of Mr. Sunstein's
views are troubling to say
the least. He is on record
supporting rights for ani-
'mals including giving stand-
ing to private persons to sue
on behalf of animals under
existing laws. He has also
stated that he believes there
should be more regulation
in the area of animal rights.

This is slippery slope to say
the least. What will happen
if he is presented with a reg-


And then I woke up this morning and sort of screamed a lit-
tle when I rolled over to get up. The second day is always
the worst, they tell me. (Apparently, they're right.) Now I'm
in full-blown whiny-baby mode. Doug took me to Wal-Mart
(I didn't insist on driving today, you notice) and I got a nifty
ice pack to wrap around it. While we were there, we ran
across Tank Lee and family, who were very nice about not
making fun of my stupid clumsiness. Well, except Angel of
course, who had to giggle a bit...and who can blame her...but
who offered to come help me get the paper together this
week because typing one-handed is a little slow. OK, it's a
LOT slow. So please bear .with me and be patient with any
typos this week; I'm handicapped. Literally.

Everybody tells me I should go get it X-rayed, but it's Sun-
day and I'd have to go to the Emergency Room. I don't want
to. I'd have to wait all day, and I have health insurance. It
would cost me a fortune. If I didn't have insurance, I could
probably go' and get away with a few hundred dollars on the
bill, but because I sock away $80 a week out of my paycheck
in a savings account to send to Blue Cross,
Lost a planet, my 20 % co-pay would probably be $1,000 af-
ter they got done with me. I have to pay for

self, I guess.
barrasSing."


I'll wait and see if it gets better, and if it
doesn't, then maybe I'll go get X-rays...prob-
Frank Oz ably on Wednesday, because I have to work.
Monday and Tuesday, and after I've called
around to see where is the most reasonably priced. That's
what's really wrong with our current medical system, you
know. People like you and me can't afford a 20% co-pay be-
cause of all the people who go for "free", so WE do without
medical care, while the unemployed, and the people who see
the doctor on the government dime go if they have a hang-
nail on their little toe.

Why not? They're not.inissing work--because most don't
work--and it.doesn't cost them anything to go. The truly
poor people are taken care of; it's the people in the middle
who suffer. The people who like us, who work, but who
aren't broke enough to be "poor" and aren't paid enough to
be "rich." We have to worry about what medical care costs;
we're the ones who pay for it one way or another.

So, if you'll excuse me, my cold pack is ready I'm going to
go take an Advil, sit on the couch and see if I can't find a
documentary on about something that eats killer whales.
Not that I'm bitter or anything, but I could have sworn that
Shamu was laughing at me. Anybody know a good lawyer
who sues Orca and will take bait fish as a retainer?


ulatory situation where he
is free to "follow the law" as
well as advance his own per-
sonal views at the same
time? And what if he uses
the power of this office to
influence the law he then ea-
gerly follows?,

In my own past work experi-
ence, I've had substantial
firsthand experience with
OIRA. The office can be a
bear to deal with since it has
life and death power over
regulatory actions. And I
,have seen how the personal
views of OIRA staff can be-
come dangerously problem-
atic, as the regulators at-
tempt to push the law in one
way or another because they
are in a position to affect (or
even craft) law, not just fol-
low it.

Given Sunstein's troubling
statements and advocacy, he
should not be confirmed to
run OIRA. The Senate
should vote down his nomi-
nation.

And in so doing, it should
send a clear message to the
President that a nominee
with radically leftwing
views concerning issues like
animal rights should not be
in a position where he has
the opportunity to craft
laws, rules, and regulations
that could'plunge the live-
stock industry into a litiga-
tion abyss from which it
may never emerge.

regarding illegal netting of
commercial quantities of
mullet. Officers Todd
Nichols, Travis Cooper
and Investigator Larry Ay-
ers assisted him. After six
hburs of surveillance, Offi-
cer Butler spotted the target-
ed subjects fishing their nets
and was able. to. direct the
other officers to an isolated
boat ramp where the sus-
pects had launched. A short
time later, the violators were
apprehended as they at-
tempted to load their vessels.
Inspection of the two vessels
revealed approximately 8,000
feet of illegal gill net and 195
mullet in one vessel and ap-
proximately 4,000 feet of ille-
gal gill net and 48 mullet in
the other. The nets and fish
were seized as evidence.' Of-
ficer Butler will be direct fil-
ing charges through the
State Attorney's Office.

LEVY COUNTY

FWC Communications re-
ceived a call from the U.S.
Coast Guard about an over-
due recreational fishing ves-
sel with one person on
board. Officers from the
Crystal River Field Office,
USCG vessel and air assets,
and local law enforcement
agencies searched extensive-
ly for the missing boater.
The victim's body was locat-
ed by a USCG helicopter the
next day and Officers Frank
DiMartino and Justin
Henry recovered the body.
The vessel has not been re-
covered. The investigation
is ongoing.

SUWANNEE COUNTY

Officer Matt Tyre responded
to a call for assistance from
the Suwannee County Sher-
iff's Office. While conduct-
ing a raid on a meth house
in the Dowling Park area, of-
ficers discovered a rat-
tlesnake in the house. Offi-
cer Tyre quickly captured
the snake and relocated it.
He issued the subject a cita-
tion for unlawful possession
of a venomous reptile with-
out a permit.

cTrat/ /Rkters

By Bonnie Wilson

Let me tell you of our last
campout and trail ride that
we had at Lake Panasoffkee
Trailhead, which is part of
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District lands.
Eighteen miles of marked
trails are designated for
horseback riding. Wetlands
dominate this 9,900 plus-acre
tract with extensive areas of
mixed hardwoods, red maple
swamps, lakefront marshes
and willow areas. Uplands
areas include oak ham-
mocks, scrub oaks and some
pastures.

The campout at Lake Pana-
soffkee was wonderful. Dave
and I went down on Friday
afternoon. Unfortunately we
had some bad traffic on the
interstate due to a wreck, so
we didpnot arrive at the
camp until 5:30. Randy was
glad to see us. He had been
there most all day and had
been sight seeing with his
magnificent Paso Fino, ,
Rocky.

We actually had a great
evening around a non-fire
campsite lit up by a coleman
lantern due to the no fires
allowed signs posted. It was
a cool evening, and I mean
that in two ways. The weath-
er was cool and it got a lot
cooler with no fire to help us
keep warm. The state was
going through a dry period
and the fire index was high,
so "No Fires Allowed" at
this time. Secondly, Randy
was kind enough to enter-
tain Dave and I with some
banjo picking and grinning.
He was picking, and we
were grinning!

The next morning brought
Bennie and Fay We all sad-
dled up and rode with
Randy being our guide. He
took us through some beau-
tiful trails. Some were very
dusty and if you can imag-
ine, my Dusty was even
dustier! By the end of the.
trail he looked like a war
paint pony

We rode across a wooden
bridge and into some of the
most beautiful trails that
Davy, and I had the privilege
of being a part of in this
unique Florida landscape.
The morning air was incred-
ible. The temperature; was
just right, making the air
sweet and the skies as blue
as Dusty's eyes. We took
some interesting turns
through some dense wooded
areas and I loved it! Now
we're talking true trail rid-
ing. A true trail-blazing feel-
ing that comes over you, at
least it did me! Bennie has
often teased me about being
Danielle Boone and I have
answered back that she is
Divinia Crocket. Maybe that
was the feeling!


After we had been riding for
a while we came to an area
that was a bit on the
swampy side even though it
was dry At least as I looked
at it I was thinking this
could be a possible place
that gators wouldlike.
Randy had told Dave and I
the night before that he and
Fay had actually seen gators
at Lake Panasoffkee on pre-
vious rides. He also said one
of the gators refused to
move from the path. Now if
you were I, you'd be think-
ing like me. Is there a gator
around the corner? Dear
Lord, help me stay in the
saddle, please... And as
these thoughts float thru my


September 2009


head I suddenly heard
Randy shout; " gator on the
trail!" WHAT! Now I'm
looking at every nook and
cranny as Dusty and I care-
fully ease round each bush,
where is he? Dusty, don't
you dare leave me! Well, I
did survived, and to my re-
lief I did not see any gators.
As we rounded the'last turn
and I saw Bennie, Fay and
Randy waiting for us. I
heard Randy call out and
say to me "Did you see the
gator" to which, I quickly
answered, "No, thank God!"
Randy laughed, and sudden-
ly as his fit of laughter con-
tinued, I realized he had
been teasing me. There were
no gators. Imagine that!
Well, that was ok. Better the
laugh was on me than a
gator! Just remember
Randy; they have a saying
about paybacks. Just when
you least expect it...watch
out.


That evening around our
non-file lantern lit camp, we
discussed our day's adven-
tures as we ate our KFC
chicken dinner.. After the
. morning ride we had all
loaded up and went into
Wildwood to the Chocolate
Factory to browse, sample
and buy some great choco-
lates. We then stopped at
KFC to buy our evening din-
ners. The chicken was good
and the company was great
too. Randy played his banjo
and also his guitar. Phil was
kind enough to bring along
his new guitar that he had
won while on a Bluegrass
Cruise that he and Row, Ron
and Nancy had gone on with
Dave and I back in January.
Phil and Randy both enter-
tained us with some great
music. The music was so
good it caused Bennie and I
to get up and dance. It was
really a lot of fun. And a lit-
tle bit later Randy played
some bluesy music. This in-
spired Bennie to show us
howto do the camel walk. I
tried it, but to no avail, alas
my camel could not walk. I
think he had two left feet!
That did seem to set off a
chain reaction for Randy to
get us all started on making
up a song for the evening.
We called it the Lake Pana-
soffkee Blues. You just had
to be there to join in on the
fun.


After much fun and merri-
ment around the lantern lit
fire ring, we all decided to
call it a day and turn in for
the night. We planned on
getting up the next morning
and having breakfast and an
early morning ride before
packing it in and heading
for home. The breakfast
happened, but before we
could tack up for the ride a
heavy rain popped up very
swiftly and unexpected. We
decided to load the horses
on the trailers and head for'
,the house. With horses
loaded we headed for home
and wonderful thoughts of
the trail ride, camp6ut and
Chocolate Factory visit
flooded our conversation.
Another wonderful time
with nature, our horses and
friends embedded in our
memories.


If you have not had the plea-
sure of camping out at Lake
Panasoffkee, I highly recom-
mend it. It is a great place to
camp and sing and have a
lot of fun. You can contact

soil and not keeping it soak-
ing wet. Contrary to public
opinion, TOO much of a
good thing CAN be harmful.
Excessive watering with
slow or poor drainage can
cause even the toughest .
grasses or shrubs to get fuh-
gus; mildew and root rot."
Here comes a BIGGIE: the
months of September and
October are great months to.
purchase and plant decidu-
ous trees (the ones that shed
their leaves once a year).
This is the time of year lo-
cal nurseries will offer sales
on overstocked plants and,
trees that are ready to be,
potted up into bigger con-
tainers. The trick is to get?
these trees out of the nurse.
ery pots a.s.a.p. and into the
ground early enough to al-
low their roots to become es-
tablished before the first
frost appears.

Take some time for. yourself
these next few days to ap-
preciate the beautiful au-
tumn colors that have be-
gun to appear. Say a special
prayer for our troops that
.allow us the freedom to
stroll through our gardens.
Make this FALE-special and
enjoy life!

Give a plant, sow a friend-
ship! God bless, Art

I recently saw a T.V ad
about locking in grocery
prices for the whole month
of September. I thought that
would be a terrific idea if
we could lock in the temper-
ature around the 60-80 de-
gree range with low humidi-
ty Dream on! Since we have
absolutely no control over
Mother Nature, we can only
guess(meteorologists use
the term predict) what Sep-
tember might bring to our
area. Thankfully, the hurri-
canes have avoided us so far,
however, September and Oc-
tober are the most active
tropical storm months.
Keep alert for any storm
threats and make sure -you
have a plan of what you and
your family will do if a
WARNING is issued.

September will be the last
time this year I would sug-
gest to fertilize before win-
ter arrives. Encouraging
root growth later this fall is
not advisable. New roots are
- sensitive and can be easily
damaged by frost. Fertiliz-
ing in October or November
can actually cause more
harm than good and may
lead to losing the plant.

Watering this time of year
is also tricky business: the
goal is to maintain damp

13 years, oh how long they have been! Life does go F
on and so much has changed. Your children are
grown up and you are a "grandpa" now! I have a
hard time seeing you in the role of grandpa, guess
because I didn't see you grow older. I know you would
have loved playing with Patricrk and Rylan because
you loved Chelsea and Dwight so much.You were a good
son and a good'father and made me very proud to call
you mine.


They say all things work for good but I could never see that in my losing you.1
know enough about the bible to know I can't question God but I have faith
enough to know I will see you again someday and will understand it all in
time.People live and people die, some young some old that is a fact of life.lts
hard but,still its a fact of life. I believe I have more compassion for people that
looses a loved one now. more than ever before. If God can use me in that way
then I am willing to do his work. I can tell people that they will only make it
through if they trust in God. Trusting in God is the only way anyone can
come through thie death of a loved one and find peace about it.
You never will get over it, but time will help with the pain.Sometimes I worry
that as I grow old I will forget you face or you beautiful smile but then all I
have to do is look into the eyes of your children and there you are! I am still a
blessed person to have had you in my life for even a short thirty years. God al-
lowed me those years with you and I thank him each day for that.
Love always.

"Constitution Rally"

Perry FL - Volunteers across
Northern Florida are orga-

Park on U.S. 19 South in Per-

until noon.
The rally is part of a nation-

citizens about their federal
government and to unify
Americans much the same
way the country unified the
day following 9/11. A citizen-

its of government, and then
unites, has the ability to keep
government in its proper
role.
According to organizer
Chairman Paul Henry, "the

plement is a funding supple-
ment for smaller school dis-

cern that our local schools
are not receiving the ade-

FAITH BAPTIST

CHURCH NEWS


Today was a very special
5th Sunday at Faith. We
had lots of visitors, and we
were able to take many off
of our prayer list. God is so
good and He has healed
many of our church family.
Our 5th Sunday night sing
was one of the best we'd had
in a long time. Our list of
singers just continues to
grow, just one more sign
that God is still working at
Faith. We thank Him for a
gorgeous, sunny day today
and for all our visitors, past
members who have re-
turned and the faithful ones
of our church family that
are always there no matter
what. God is so good.

We have some going for
tesis and others going for
surgery Monday and we cov-
et your prayers for these..
We know that God will be
with us all the way because
His Word says that He will
never leave us nor forsake
us. We are so thankful for
that promise." If you feel that
God is calling you to take an
office, now is the time to

Club will hold its first meet-
ing of the 2009-10 year on
Tuesday, September 8, 2009
at 5:30 p.m. at the Shamrock
Lodge in Cross City, FL. As
a reminder, the 4-H year
runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31,
so all members (of any 4-H
club) will need to re-enroll
each year.

Some 4-H Facts You May
Not Know:
- Youth are eligible for mem-
bership when they have
reached their 5th birthday on or
before Sept. 1st of the current 4-
H year. Youth may continue to
participate until Aug. 31st of
the 4-H year in which they grad-


uate from high school or reach
their 19th birthday, whichever,
comes first.
- Youth must enroll in at least
one (1) 4-H project each year to
be considered an active mem-
ber.
- Youth may enroll in both 4-H
and FFA/FHA; however, you
must enter at least one (1) pro-
ject in the Suwannee River Fair
and Livestock Show & Sale as a
4-H member.
- Youth must be 8 years old pri-
or to Sept. 1 of the current 4-H
year in order to participate in
large animal projects at the fair
(i.e. steers, heifers, swine, dairy
goat, dairy cow). I
- Yough ages 5-7 are considered
"Cloverbuds". Cloverbuds are
permitted to show rabbits, poul-
try, and home economics en-
tries in the Suwannee River
Fair and Livestock Show & Sale.

They need strength and un-
derstanding in taking care

invite someone to come to

might be just the invitation
they need that would lead
them to being saved and
how God would bless you for
that.

If you were visiting with
us today, we want you to
know how special you are
and how happy we were to
have you with us. If you're
looking for a church home,
we invite you to share ours.
Until we meet again, we will
be praying for you and want
you to know we love you
and look forward to seeing
you again.

cational opportunity

sional coaches, compete
against some of the best in-
ternational teams (whose
alumni include players like
Albert Pujols, Jose Reyes,
and David Ortiz), visit in-
credible sights, and learn

Honda Owners Left


Out in the Cold

Local Honda Dealer Welcomes Them with Open Arms


Gainesville, FL
The Government's C.A.R|S. or
Cash for Clunkers program was wildly
successful. Consumers traded in older;
gas guzzling vehicles for new, safer,
more fuel efficient models with govern-
ment rebates up to $4,500. Amidst the
jubilee of new car sales, a particular
group found themselves excluded from
the excitement and opportunities.
Owners of late model. Hondas who
thought they would qualify found that
they were left out in the cold due to the
Government's strict federal guidelines.
Now that the Government's
program is over, local Honda dealer
Wade Raulerson Honda at 3801 North


Main Street in
Gainesville is offering
current Honda owners
a chance with Wade


Raulerson Honda's opportu
Clunker Trade-in
Program. "This is both u
actually a great oppor- dealers
tunity for both us as a
dealership and current current
Honda owners," said
Jason Dillon, used car - Jaso
manager for Wade Used Casr
Raulerson Honda. Used Car
'The supply of
quality vehicles is extremely low and
demand is at an all time high. The bulk
of our inventory comes from trade-ins.
Before the Cash for Clunkers program
it was difficult to keep $10,000 or less
vehicles in stock, now it's almost
impossible. They're sold as soon as we
get them in," said Dillon.
While it seems Wade Raulerson
Honda is focusing on Honda owners,
they concede that the market is ripe for
trades of all types, from late model
Toyotas, Nissans and Fords to luxury
Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Lexus


models. Wade Raulerson Honda is
looking to replenish their shortage as
soon as possible making now the
perfect time to trade in your current
vehicle for a newer model Honda
today.
"With so many vehicles being
destroyed in the Cash for Clunkers pro-
gram, prices have begun to rise at the
auctions and everyone is searching for
a way to fill their lot and keep prices
low. We figured who better to offer up to
$4,500 for their trade-in than current
Honda owners who may have felt
snubbed during the Government pro-
gram," added Dillon.


Those whi


o were unable to qualify
for the Government's
Cash for Clunkers
program should bring
their current vehicle to
Wade Raulerson
Honda.
"It's really a
blessing in disguise
for Honda owners that
were unable to cash in
on the government
program," said Dillon.
"Hondas are ranked
with the highest resale
value of any vehicle
market, and we're

offering top dollar when you trade yours
in right now. With these kinds of offers,
we're confident we'll fill our used lot up
quickly."
Interested persons looking to trade
in their late model Honda or other late
model vehicle should contact Jason
Dillon at Wade Raulerson Honda's
used car lot at 3801 North Main Street,
Gainesville or by calling 1-877-639-

Program.
