Unemployment rate

drops 1/2 % in

August
According to a report re-
leased by the Agency for
Workforce Innovation, the
unemployment rate for Dix-
ie County dropped from,
12.4% to 11.9% during Au-
gust. According to the re-
port, 22 more people had
jobs than in July, leaving
670 people listed as unem-
ployed, out of Dixie's total
labor force of 5,610. Neigh-
boring Gilchrist and Levy
Counties benefitted from
similar increases in em-
ployment levels, although
both counties have levels
lower than Dixie's. The un-
employment rate a year ago
in August was 8.1%.

The regular County Com-
mission meeting Thursday
evening was all business;
faces were grim, and the
usual joviality wasn't to be
seen. Candidates for Coun-
ty attorney Michael Osteen
and his family, and Don.
Curtis, III and his father,
were amongst the standing-
room only crowd.

The Commission accepted a
final "Closeout" report from
departing County Attorney
Leenette McMillan, contain-
ing case files on the numer-
ous lawsuits pending,
against the county She
filled three chairs with the
boxes from one case, pre-
sented a settlement agree-
ment on the-River Shores at
Jena development lawsuit,
and updated the Commis-
sion on other pending litiga
tion, including the 10 Com-
mandments ACLU
lawsuit.

Despite being ousted early,
Ms. McMillan showed re-
markable grace, thanking
the Commission for the
chance to serve, apologizing
for the closeout report, say-
ing that she had put it to-
gether in the two short days
since she was voted out of
'office, and wishing her re-
placement, Jennifer Jones

played their best game of

when they shut out the PK

At a special School Board
meeting on Tuesday morn-
ing, the School Board Attor-
ney Contract was really the
only item on the agenda.,

Candidate Jennifer Jones
Ellison and current School
Board attorney Leeneette
McMilan appeared to be in-
terviewed by the board
members.

Jennifer Ellison went first,
explaining that she was
raised in Dixie County and
that her parents are Susan
and Jerry Jones. She ex-
plained that she had some
experience in appellate law
from her time working with
Robert Moeller, and that
since then she has been tak-
ing on "nine or'ten cases" a
year and working from
home. She said "I came be-


post. According to her con-
tract with the County, Dixie
will owe Ms. McMillan a
penalty payment of $24,000
for cancelling her contract
before the termination date.

McMillan told the Commis-
sion that some of the pend-
ing litigation that she was
turning over was "compli-
cated," and Commissioner
Troy Johnson asked her to
continue representing the
County in the complex cas-
es, with which she is more
experienced. "It's a pretty
big thing and I'd feel more
comfortable with her doing
it," he said. Commissioner
Marvin Hunt added that "I
think that would be best,"
and the Commission ap-
proved keeping her on for
the difficult ongoing cases.

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy explained to the Com-
mission that insurance pre-
miums on county employ-
ees are going up astronomi-
cally and that he is looking
for optioris in order to re-
duce medical expenses. He
explained that it would
most likely be necessary to
increase deductibles or co-
pays in order to keep the
county in the black.

Bruce Borders appeared in
order to request that a por-


fense was great," said Head
Coach Brent Wilkerson after
the game. The DC defense'
gave up just sixteen yards
and had the Blue Wave of-
fense resorting to a passing
game after being shut down
on the ground. The Bears of-


fore the board and I asked
for this position to be
open," and explained that
she felt totally qualified for
the job. Tim Alexander
asked her about her experi-
ence with collective bar-
gaining, and Glen Osteen
said, "Our attorney is very
involved in union issues."
She replied "I don't have ex-
perience directly in the col-
lective bargaining process,
but everybody's got to start
somewhere." She also stated
that she has "spoken to two
or three people" about rent-
ing office space in Cross
City, so that she would be
available to Dixie residents.
Her home is in Steinhatch-
ee.

Leenette McMillan went
next, saying that the Board
was familiar with her expe-
rience, and
that she liked
to emphasize
S"handling

fore they be-
come prob-
lems." David
Keen told her

honor and remember one of
our own," he said, and the
Commission heartily
agreed.

Chairman Marvin Hunt
slapped the wrist of a mo-
bile home installer who put
in a manufactured home in
Skyline Heights without
getting the proper permits
and in violation of setback
rules. "We've had enough of
the days when people would
just put those things in and
not get permits and just pay
double if they got caught.
Whatever you're request-
ing," he said, "You need to
be within those guidelines."
Building and Zoning Offi- ,
cial John Jenkins assured
the Commission that he
would stay on t6p of the
matter, saying, "I'll go out
there myself and measure it
before he straps it down."


fense gathered thirteen first
downs and 266 yards rushing
in 40 possessions. This was
in spite of having had to re-
place the center three times
due to injuries.

See BEARS, page 6


"You've always done us a
great job."

Glen Osteen then made the
motion to stay with Ms.
McMillan as the County At-
torney and Top Rollison sec-
onded the motion. There
was a pause in voting while
Cheryl Pridgeon said that
she has a close relationship
with Ms. Ellison, that "I
taught her in high school...
and I am going to go with
Jennifer."

Tim Alexander said, "The
question is, are you getting
a quality job and a price
that is reasonable? And this
board feels like they're get-
ting that," and he and David
Keen added their votes to
pass the motion to retain
Ms. McMillan as School
Board Attorney

plete. Deputies then re-
sponded to the location and
upon arrival observed Os-
teen flee from the home car-

gave chase
and were
able to sub-
due Osteen a
short dis-

Jimmy Carter and the "R word"

Freelance diplomats can be the bane of any administration,
and for once I almost feel sorry for President Obama. The
poor guy has none other than former President Jimmy
Carter out there stirring up trouble by accusing anyone
who disagrees with the Obama administration of being mo-
tivated by a latent hatred of black people.

In other words, if you don't like the way Barack Obama is
running the show--and you have the effrontery to say any-
thing about it--you are a RACIST! You mean you never
joined the Ku Klux Klan? You never voted for George Wal-
lace? You didn't even read David Duke's book? It doesn't
matter; if you say anything contrary to what the Obama ad-
ministration has laid out for the future of our nation, it's
only. because you don't like people who look like him and
not like the pictures of presidents and other statesmen on
our currency.

President Obama has tried to distance himself from this
nonsense by insisting that his critics are not necessarily all
racially-motivated, but the Carter accusations resound like
a flatulent bullfrog in a 50 gallon oil drum.

All right, let's take a look at Carter's own record. He rose to
prominence in Georgia back when the state was segregated,
and when he first ran for governor, he proudly stated that
he was a candidate of the Lester Maddox persuasion. As.
Governor of Georgia, Maddox was a staunch segregationist
who later opened a "whites only" fried chicken restaurant
in Atlanta in defiance of newly-enacted civil rights legisla-
tion.

Back then (the 1960s) you had to be a Democrat and you had
to be a segregationist if you wanted to get elected in any
southern state. Jimmy Carter simply played the game, just
like he's playing the game now that the rules have changed,
with his abstird charges of racism leveled against people
who take issue with President Obama's leftist agenda.

It's been early 30 years..
since Carter left office after
one disastrous term, so let's
treat the younger folks to,a
short critique of that inaus- th.r
picious period in our na-
tion's history

The Carter presidency is
best known for his failure to ,
mount an adequate re-
sponse to an act of war,
committed by Iran when
they overran our embassy
in Tehran and held the in-
habitants therein captive
until the end of the Carter
administration, at which
time the towel-heads quickly surmised that Ronald Reagan
wasn't just going to sit there and do nothing in the face of
such extreme provocation.

What seems to have escaped the attention of the American
public in recent years is the fact that Carter masterminded
a scheme which resulted in the giveaway of the Pamama
Canal. Yes, it's in Panama, but if you don't know who dug
the trench, read Teddy Roosevelt's memoirs. It was our lit-
tle piece of property in Central America, it brought pros-
perity to the inhabitants of that region, and it provided a
significant element of security for the entire Western
Hemisphere. Carter ceded it back to Panama, and we got
zilch in return,

Another Carter contribution to this great nation was a new
word in our vocabulary That word was "stagflation," a
merger of "stagnant" (in reference to the economy) and "in-
flation." We had both in the late 70s, along with a high rate
of unemployment.

President Obama is making enough mistakes on his own.
He certainly doesn't need to have Jimmy Carter saying
dumb things in his behalf. Which reminds me of a com-
ment I heard recently: Who would ever have thought that
brother Billy would have turned out to be the bright one?


by Kathy McKinney


'm all in favor of individual property rights,
a- and your right to do almost anything you
want to with your own property, but there's a
S * trend going across Dixie lately that is getting
D under my skin. I'm sure you've seen them,
those ten-foot high wire fences that seem to be
springing up like sandspurs in August. Out where I live, in
the First District, there's a new one going up right now on
CR 353. I hate it. I absolutely hate it.

Sure, they're ugly and a blight on the rural landscape, but
that's not what bothers me the most. Daddy told me about
one he saw the other day, I can't remember where he said he
was, but he was riding along and one of those fences had
just gone up. A young deer, who had apparently given up
trying to jump over the fence, was throwing herself against
it, about to collapse from exhaustion. Daddy said it was
heart-rending and he desperately wanted to help her, but
couldn't figure out how. Apparently, the guy
who put the fence up didn't send out a memo "The fen
to the local wildlife to let them know that, The fe
their route home, or to a water hole was going good neigl
to be permanently re-routed by humans.

I've seen several other bewildered animals,
trying to figure out how to get home since
then; last week it was a wild turkey Turkeys
aren't real bright, and this one didn't realize
that the fence wasn't complete yet; if he had just walked to
the end of it a quarter-mile or so down the road, he could
have gone around it. But he was a turkey, so he was running
up and down in front of it, in a hopeless quest to get on the
other side. (OK, I have to admit that I don't eat vension, but
I LOVE turkey, and I spent a few seconds to calculate just
how much damage I'd probably take trying to rassle the
tired but oh-so-yummy turkey dinner into the back of my,
truck.)

This morning it was a bunny, again too dumb to realize that
the fence isn't finished yet. I can't help but wonder what
will happen when the fence is finished; and when all of the
� other fences, all over the county are up. When the deer and
the wild hogs and the turkeys can't move about freely, are
they really "wild" anymore?

When all of the watering places are fenced in, and the
places where the deer and the other critters find food are all
enclosed behind 10 foot wire walls, what will happen to the
wildlife that makes Dixie special? It'll either be fenced in,
and turned into expensive "livestock" for the people who
can afford 500 acres and high fences, or fenced out and fac-
ing starvation and lack, of habitat. The fences will cause
high levels of in-breeding in the captive populations and
limit access to mates in the "wild' ones. Humans, will suffer,
too, as the high, un-jumpable fences will drive large num-
bers of deer to cross roads in concentrated areas, leading to
ever-higher numbers of car-deer accidents.

CHPALIE R.ANGEL COMING
UNDER FIRE FOR ALL OF HIS
CoRRUPTION 4HAS MADE
MSE CONCERNEDi...1 HOPE I
HAVEN'T BEEN INVOLVED
IN ANYTHING CORRUPTT


Dear Editor,

This is truly a letter to the edi-
tor. I have written several times
in this column, but usually it
was to get a message across to
the readers of the paper. This
time I must address the editor.

I almost threw the paper away
today without reading it. I have
been so busy this past week and
decided that it was all old news
by now. Besides, I was trying to
clean off my desk so I could at
least see my calendar on the
desk pad. I am so glad that I de-
cided to read your column. I
LOVED your last editorial "You
Lie". It was great reading, filled
with truth. I enjoyed it im-
mensely I wish we had more
editors of newspapers that
would speak the truth without
worrying about what is politi-
cally correct. I am so tired of
everything that comes out of
our media presented through
rose-colored glasses.

I too am a big fan of Glenn
Beck. I understand as you do
that sometimes he is over the
top, but we need someone like
him. He presents the truth to
us. I also watch FOX News.
Sometimes I will switch and
watch a mainstream news pro-
gram and I am amazed at their
"news". I can watch a speech
by the President or another
politician, listen to ABC, NBC
or CBS talk about it, and won-
der if they were watching the
same speech.

I listen to our far left leaders in
Washington and wonder what
our founding fathers would
have thought. I do not care if


LIKE THAT TIME WITH
THE .*.4-s- W oCHo, K.-
--DuGEH OF VTLOER- E?


you are Republican, Democrat
or Independent. We must all
stand up for What we believe.
We need to keep our freedom of
speech, our freedom to own
firearms, our freedom of reli-
gion (stop taking God out of
everything), and our freedom to
stand up and tell Congress that
we are tired of them and will
not vote for them in the next
election. Let's get people in of-
fice that share our views. Hold
them accountable. If they tell
us one thing and do another
once elected let them hear from
us. That goes from the Presi-
dent of the United States all the
way down to local elected politi-
cians.

One comment I would like to
make about "Dixie Families
join march on Washington".
There were more people from
Dixie County that attended the
Tea Party than you reported.
One was a local business owner
here in Suwannee. I would like
to commend them all in stand-
ing up for what they believed. I
wish it had been possible for me
to attend. I would have loved to
been there.

Thanks for your stand and the
willingness to share your
thoughts with us.
Sincerely,
Christine Parr
Suwannee FL

Ms. Parr:

Aw, I'm blushiin'. I'm glad you
liked the article.

I wanted to go to 9/12, too.
Maybe next year we can get a
chartered bus and we can all go
together!--ed


Where were the environmentalist tree-huggers when per-
mits for these fences were handed out? You, yes all of you,
who protested the new RV park on 349 because of the "red-
cockaded woodpecker," where are you when the wildlife mi-
gration patterns of an entire county are being re-written
with no oversight at all? Save the Suwannee folk, where are
you? How about you hunters, who depend on well-fed and
healthy deer in November? Am I the only one bothered by
this?

Now, I'm no environmentalist wacko by any means, and I
think what California has' done to farmers in the name of a
stupid little bait fish is a crime. I think having "certified go-
pher movers" to move tortoises from one field to another is
just plain silly I think that people, and jobs, and private
property rights should come first. People fencing their
property to keep cows in, dogs out, or deer out of their corn
shouldn't be bothered. These gigantic fences around hun-
dreds of acres, though, are not 10' tall to keep cows from
jumping them, or thieves from climbing over. They're pur-
posely designed against high-jumping
e that makes wildlife.' BUT...why isn't.there some sort of
law or rule or environmental regulation
bors needs a that says that if you put up a fence around
S make a large tract that is too high or too secure
gate to make for wildlife to get over or under, that you
0ood friends" have to put some sort of "gate" in it for
them? It could be people-proof, to keep out
--Proverb unwanted human guests, but something to
allow the animals to access ponds and fields
unimpeded. It wouldn't have to be expensive, even. A single
section of normal-height fence would do the trick, I'd bet.
Something like the things in fishing nets that let turtles out.

If, however, it is the property owner'. intention to fence the
wildlife IN, then they need to be required to get all of the
necessary permits to keep wildlife as pets, just like wildlife
rehabilitation people and people who run game reserves do.
Because if you confine a deer, or a turkey, or a wild hog, it's
yours. It becomes property, and a pet, or livestock (depend-
ing on the yumminess quotient.) It's no longer a wild crea-
ture, but your responsibility

I don't mean to give the property owners with these fences a
hard time. I totally understand the urge to build a fortress
around the stuff that you own. Rogues and vandals are
everywhere, and you have to protect your property. I get
that. I suspect that when there were just a few of these
fences around, nobody much thought about the effect it
would have on critters, big and small.

But our age of innocence is over; Dixie County is growing
up. We're not going to get any smaller or less developed,
and if these fences keep going up everyWhere,TI'm afraid
that we're going to lose one of the best things about living
here. We're going to lose that thrill of glimpsing a wild
turkey crossing the road, a deer in the back yard early in the
morning, or even a coyote out looking for a quick rabbit din-
ner. If we don't do something soon, it may be too late before
we realize what we've lost.'


Dear Editor, Ms. Gentry:


I feel that seat belts law
is a violation of my con-
stitutional right. And for
those who think it is a
great idea, well, in my
opinion, you are blinded
by what our government
is capable of doing o us.

It does not matter to me
what the statistics tell us
about how many people
live or die because they
did or not have on their
belt. What matter to me
is the fact that you could
possibly die wearing one.
And our government is
forcing me to put on my
body something that
could possibly kill me.
Yes it could save me, but
it could kill me too. I
know 2 people personally
that would have been
killed had they been
wearing a seat belt. But
apparently they do not
care about that.

They do, however, care
about all the money they
will make from it. What
is wrong with this pic-
ture?
Connie Gentry
Old Town


From my time running a
towing company and my
experience working
wrecks for the paper, I've
got to tell you, anybody
who doesn't wear a seat
belt is just plain foolish.
I've seen so many wrecks
with unneccessaryfatali-
ties. I've also seen a trag-
ic few where it didn't mat-
ter, and the guy could've
been wearing a bullet-
proof football helmet and
it wouldn't have saved
him. There are no safety
guarantees, and riding in
a car is a risk everyone
takes. I do believe that
there's a special circle of
hell reserved for people
who don't buckle little
kids into car seats,
though.

You're a grown-up and
can wear your belt or not,
it's your life. Maybe the
state will make enough
money off of seat belt
fines to pay the people
who scrape up the pieces

crar l tfers
By Bonnie Wilson

Isn't it Fall Yet?

It was a warm clear sunny
September morning as the
club members met up at
Pruitt Trailhead. Bennie
and Bill, Fay and Randy,
Nancy and Ron, Sandy and
Marilyn, and Dave and my-
self were here to ride. Every-
one was anxiously awaiting
one of the first rides of the
season. But where is the
cooler weather? And why
are there love bugs swarm-
ing outside the truck win-
dow?

Bennie, Fay, Randy, Nancy,
Ron, Sandy and Marilyn led
the pack on high-stepping
horses. They took the high
road and left the three mus-
keteers Bill, Dave and myself
on quarter horse's to take
the low road. Our road was
not as pleasant as the high'
road. We were left with
some gigantic horse flies
that seemed to delight in at-
tacking our poor horses.
They were soooo big, I swear
they were wearing high-top
tennis shoes and carrying
luggage on their back. None
the less, we three muske-
teers traveled on our low
road and swatted at those.
dratted horse flies with a
fierce force. . And may the
force be with you! Not one of
those large oversized house-
flies on steroids was going
to spoil our ride. No way!

Deeper into the trail they
did become fewer and far-
ther between and we man-
aged to get in a good ride. I
love the forest. I especially
love the fall weather when
it's cool and a soft breeze
blows gently at your back as
you and your faithful four-
legged buddy take a soft trot
through the forest. The
sound of crunching leaves
beneath a horse's feet is like
music to my ears. The sky-
line is a beautiful shade of
blue with large fluffy clouds


Se


floating high above me. The
sights, the sounds, the feel of
fall are clearly in the air.
Now that's a natural high.
One that I whole heartily ap-
prove of.

As we returned to the trail-
head we discovered that
Fred Fox had stopped by to
visit with us at camp and
also Audrey Engler. It was
really great Qf both Audrey
and Fred to come out and
just visit 'with us, although
they could not ride today. We,
really did enjoy the day De-
spite the horse flies and the
love bugs, we really did have
a great time. And isn't this
just what a club is all about?

Sharing a love of nature and
horses brings good friends
together, having great fun
with both their horses and
friends. We really have some
great people in our club. If
you've not joined us yet,
you're missing out on a lot
of fun. It will get cooler and
the horse flies and the love
bugs will disappear but the
friendship will always be
here.

The trail-riding season is fi-
nally in full swing and we as
the Levy County Horse Club
trail riders are truly excited
to be back in the saddle
again.

We have 2 scheduled rides'
per month and we try to
camp out overnight as often
as possible. However some
trailheads do not permit us
to stay overnight. The first
camping trip of this season
will be at Goethe Tidewater
Trailhead for our Breast
Cancer Awareness Trail
Ride on October 24th. Join
us for an incredibly great
time and also help us contin-
ue our efforts to help our
community support this
cause. Come on our next
trail ride.

Until then, happy trails to
you.

EA A FOO TI BALL


From BEARS, page 1

Bears quarterback
Kameron Keen attempted 10
passes including a spectacu-
lar pass to Godbolt for an
80-yard touchdown in the
third quarter.

The Bears started Friday
night's game with a growl
when they kicked off to the
Blue Wave and recovered
their own kick. In three
plays, Keen laid the ball in
the end zone on a quarter-
back keeper and Zack Cas-
sidy drilled the uprights for
a seven-point lead. The
Bears never looked back,
keeping the Wave at bay the
rest of the night. Stephen
Godbolt
added six
more points
in the first
quarter with
a 14-yard _,
sprint, giving
the Bears a |.'
comfortable
lead going
into the half.

In the third
quarter, the
Bears re-
ceived the ball first which
was bad news to the Wave.


JV Bears Mauled

by Panthers

by John Kelley

The JV Bears lost to the
Newberry Panthers last
Tuesday night in Newberry.
The Pan-
thers
scored 24
unan-
swered
points in
the first
quarter
on a wet
soggy
field in
Newber-
ry The
Bears
struggled
valiantly
the whole
night, but
were nev-
er able to
overcome
the fast
Newberry
team. The
Bears fi-
nally ral-
lied in
the last
three
minutes of the fourth quar-
ter, saving the game from a
Panther shutout, scoring on
a one play drive by Mont-
gomery after a turn-over on


downs from Newberry The
second half Bears looked
better and more focused, but
just could not come back
from the 32 point deficit.
This game puts Newberry
in the undefeated category
and has the JV Bears look-
ing towards a home field ad-
vantage against Williston on


Tuesday night in Cross City
Lets give the boys some sup-
port and watch the game.
Go Bears!

On September 15th, the

With momentum on the

take the next 2 games. Both
teams fought hard, and
played well in the second

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your
trust and confidence in permitting me to take care of your
dental needs through the years. It is with mixed emotions
that I am announcing my retirement from my practice. Be-
cause I want to be certain that my patients continue to re-
ceive the best possible care, I have carefully evaluated, a
number of candidates who were interested in assuming my
practice. I have selected Dr. Novikov, whom I believe pos-
sesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well
skilled in all phases of dentistry
Dr. No\ ikov is from Ft. Myers and is a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Chicago dental school. I feel confident that Dr.
Novikov will continue to provide you and your family with
the best dental care possible. Dr. Novikov and the rest of
the staff will be contacting you for your next regularly
scheduled visit.
Thank you a-'am f0d'3 loyaltyy and confidence, I will

STRAIGHT TALK
By Dixie District School Su-
perintendent - Mark. Rains

We have completed the first
month of school and all is
very busy! Our children are
learning in the classroom
and participating in after
school extra curricular ac-
tivities. Students are join-
ing school clubs, officers
elected, and our football and
volleyball programs have be-
gun a successful season.
Team work and school spirit
are very important to'our
students.

Dixie County High School is
moving toward the adoption
of a new policy for random
drug testing this school
year. A public hearing will
be held at the November 17
School Board Meeting to im-
plement this policy in our
schools. We are also in the
process of beginning ran-
dom drug testing of all staff
for the first time in our
school district. The tests
will be evaluated by an ap-
proved laboratory and a
contracted company will ad-
minister the drug screen-
ings. We believe every child
is entitled to a drug free en-
vironment for education.

There have been many
changes this year involving
our progress monitoring
testing instruments. The
state has introduced a new
reading instrument call
FAIR (Florida Assessments
for Instruction in Reading),
which is different from the
DIBELS inthe past. This is
done by computer for grades
3-10 and by teachers in:
grades K-2. We have also
changed from Kaplan to
Schoolnet testing in grades
3-10 in reading, math, and
science.

Differentiated Accountabili-
ty impacts all of our
schools, based on Adequate
Yearly Progress as defined
"by the state and federal gov-
ernment. It measures how
well our schools are doing
by producing students on
grade level (FCAT Level 3

and above) in reading, math,
writing, and for high school
graduation rates. Our goal
this year is for 72% of all
students to be at or above
grade level in reading and
74% at or above grade level
in math.

We are excited about Sky-
ward, the new software
package that our district
will be adopting, starting
with finance in January and
student data in.August, 2010,.
The new application will be
web based, which will allow
teachers to access data from
everywhere. This is an ex-
citing and busy time for all
of us as we continue to work
within our old system and


get ready to move into a new
system that will allow for ac-
cess to much needed data for
students, parents, teachers,
and administrators to better
serve our students.
As with the Skyward, many
of our programs are facili-
tated by Northeast Florida
Educational Consortium.
"NEFEC" is a group of 13
,counties in North Central
Florida who have joined to-
gether-to receive services at
a much lower rate than the
counties could independent-
ly NEFEC provides services
such as risk management in-
surance, various purchasing
options, mainframe technol-
ogy services, curriculum
training, support in legisla-
tive issues and many other.
services that counties other-
wise could not afford.

seeing a steady increase in-
parental involvement and I
believe that is crucial for the
home and school to succeed.
Thanks for your support of
our school system and en-
couraging your child to
come to school, follow school
policies and work hard to be
a successful student. By all
of us pulling in the same di-
rection, we can truly make a
huge impact on Dixie Coun-
ty!

NEVER GIVE UP!

by Larry Taylor

There was this little guy sitting in the
bleachers watching the rodeo, minding his
own business when all of a sudden this
great big dude comes in and --WHACK!!--
knocks him right off the bleacher and onto
the ground. The big dude says, "That was a
kung fu chop from China." The little guy
thinks "GEEZ," but he gets back up on the
- bleacher and continues what he was doing
when all of a sudden-WHACK!!-- the big
dude
knocks
him
down
AGAIN
and says,
"That
was a
karate
chop
from
Japan."
The little
guy, not
wanting
any trou-
ble, and thinking this guy is nuts, gets up off
the ground, and moves a few seats further
down. All of a sudden, --WHACK!!-- without
warning, he feels this foot kick him upside
the head and he goes sprawling to the
ground once again. The big 'dude says with a
smile, "That's kickboxing from Thailand."
The little guy, having had enough of this
gets up, brushes himself off and quietly
leaves. He had been gone for a few minutes
when he returned, and without saying a
word, walks up behind the big dude and-
WHACK!!!-- knocks the big dude off the
bleachers and lays him out cold! The little
guy looks at the people around and says,
"When he comes to, tell him that's a crowbar
from Sears."

One of my favorite movie scenes of all time
is the one from Indiana Jones where this
guy is doing some fancy moves with big
swords ready to chop up Indiana. With a
look on his face like "I don't have time for
this" his takes out his pistol and drops the
guy right where he stands.

I'do not condone the use of crow bars or pis-
tols as weapons in these instances, but that
is funny I don't care who you are. It's make-
believe. What makes these things so funny?
We all like it when the would-be victim


wins. It is funny When'the little guy uses a


simple technique to defeat the fancy compli-
cated moves of an assailant. That is what
true Martial Arts really is, using the most
effective and straightforward defensive tac-
tics against an attacker.
Everyone has been or will be a victim of
some kind. Everyone has been or will be
hurt, physically or emotionally, by someone
who caused confrontation. In real life, that's
not funny

Martial arts is not about fighting, it is aboul
not becoming a victim. It is not about vio-
lence, buddhism, or Oriental philosophies. It
is about
preparing
a person
to not feel
"beaten"
when ver-
bal or
physical
S con-
a frontation
occurs. It
out Iis about
Onot get-
ting that
lingering
feeling of
anxiety in
the pit of your stomach when someone caus-
es an altercation. Adults, teenagers, and
children all need the ability to handle any
type of attack, verbal or physical, and then
walk away with confidence knowing that,
just like a would-be victim, you will come
out on top.

Over the next few weeks we will learn about
the history of Martial Arts, its benefits, and
its purpose. We will talk about teenage peer
pressure, ways for teenage girls getting
ready for college to be safe, how kids can de-
fend against bullies and stay away from
.strangers, and how parents can help their
children deal with certain issues.

Introducing Larry Taylor to this weekly col-
umn. He is a certified Fourth Degree Master
Instructor of Tang Soo Do. He has won eight
Tang Soo Do Championships and is a judge
at the Police Athletic League tournaments in
Jacksonville, Fl. His students have won over
15 South Eastern championships. He also
teaches 5th Grade Science at Anderson Ele-
mentary School, is certified in Educational
Leadership, has a Masters Degree in Elemen-
tary Education, and has National Board Cer-
tification in Elementary Education.

Obituaries and Faith


FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

What a mighty God we serve. He is alive and working at
Faith. Bro. Bobby Bryan brought both messages today in
Bro. Jackie's absence. Bro. Bobby did a spectacular job and
both services were really enjoyed. In the morning service,
the Crenshaw's and Heather sang a much requested song
"Look What I'm Trading for a Mansion" and in the evening
service the Brittons sang "Without Him I Would Be Noth-
ing". They all did great jobs.

God has seen lots of our members through hospital stays,
surgeries, etc. and for that we thank Him. We have others
.going in for surgery this week and we ask your prayers for
them. God knows who they are and all we need to do is ask
Him for a touch of his healing hand.

On October 3rd the Anchors Quartet will be singing at
Faith. This group was recently here and their concert was
'enjoyed by all. Be sure to mark your calendars for 7:00 PM
on Saturday, October 3rd. We plan to also have a covered
dish social at 5:30 before they sing at 7:00. Bring your fa-
vorite dish and we'll put everything together and enjoy a
- great meal in the fellowship hall.

Faith will be having their homecoming service on Novem-
ber 1st with Bro. Tom Ward bringing the Honmecoming mes-
. sage followed by Bro. Tom.leading our Fall revival. Mark
your calendars so you don't miss it. We all love Bro. Tom.
"and look forward to having him that week.

During the coming week, pray for the lost, invite someone
to Sunday School and Church with you and remember the
ones in the hospitals and the ones who will be going in for
surgery Until we meet again, may God bless you and keep
you safe, healthy and happy

Me Without

You


An inm o a Church wit nobody praying.
Have you ever looked up at a sky with no blue?
Then you've seen a picture of me without you.
Have you ever walked in a garden where nothing.
was growing?
Or stood by a river where nothing was flowing?
If you've seen a red rose unkissed by the dew;
Then you've seen a picture of me without you....
Can you picture Heaven with no Angels singing?
Or a quietSunmday morning with no Church bells ringing?
If you've watched as the heart of a child
breaks in two;
Then you've seen a picture of me without you....
Always on our Minds; Forever in our hearts...

r FIRST BAPTIST OF
' STEINHATCHEE
* What an absolute GOD filled and
inspiring week we shared at the
Tent Meeting up at Perry! Five
nights with five different men,
called by the LORD to preach to us
that are striving to live in this....
'ole sinful world! Monday was Pas-
tor Paul Nawlin from Faith Baptist
in Perry, Pastor Jason Holden from
Charity Baptist, then our Pastor
Leon Holden on Wednesday night
was Pastor Jon Edmisten, drOve
back from Georgia to preach on
Thursday! He had started Charity
Baptist Church in 2001 at Perry.
Then on Friday Pastor Eric Justice
from Homosassa Springs closed the
week! We all had to do some real
soul searching last week! Are we
ready to spread JESUS'S light to
all the hurting and unsaved, or are
we just going to hide in our own
hearts and let that light die! JUST
A THOUGHT: If you want others
to know what CHRIST can do for
them, tell them what HE has done
for you!
We ask the LORD to place a hedge
of love around Joe Hall, Wayne
and Marcia Craig, Woody and
Carol Cox, Harry Gatlin, Rusty
Dixon, Bob Puckett, Mitch
Mitchell, Amy Jones, Lisa Mor-
row, the baby of Nick Hatcher, and
' all those on all the churches prayer
list! They need to feel HIS guiding
touch and gentle peace! Remem-
ber...when we know that GOD'S
hand is in everything, we can leave
everything in His hand!
Ladies, have you signed up for the
Ladies 'Retreat at Homosassa
Springs this Saturday? The bus
will be leaving at 8:00 A. M. for
New Hope Baptist Church! Kim
Justice will be looking for us! Pas-
tor Eric and Kim always has a
real blessing for all who attend!
SOur Mission Sunday with Pastor
Gene Wisehart will be this week,
September 27th!
Pastor Holden lead out in the ob-
servance of the LORD'S Supper
during the evening services! It is
ne of the two ordinances of the


church! As we give our hearts to
the LORD and we choose to walk in
the glorious light we are Baptized!
Romans 3:23 says: For all have
sinned, and come short 6f the glo-
ry of GOD! As we are baptized, we
have washed our old sins away! As
Romans 6:22 says: But now "being
made free from sin, and become
servants to GOD, ye have your fruit
unto holiness, and the end everlast-
ing life". The ordinance of the
LORD'S Supper is three things,
Pastor Holden stated: the remem-
brance, repentance and a renewal!
Our remembering CHRIST'S death
gives us courage for today and
hope for tomorrow!
Friends, always share your smiles,
where ever you may go....they are
spoken the same in any language!!
Sandy Coleman!

By: Angel Lee
'On September 18th, American Legion

POW/MIA Recognition Day. POW/MIA
Recognition Day honors the commit-
ments and the sacrifices made by our na-
tion's prisoners of war and those who
are still missing in action.
Mr. Mike Stacey was the M.C. of the cer-
emonies, and got it started by honoring
Mr. Charlie Combs who is a POW Mr.
Stacey gave a brief speech on Mr. Combs'
life in the service, and the harsh times
that he and his fellow soldiers went
through. The American Legion Post had
some special guests on hand to help with
the POW/MIA Table Ceremony.
Mr. Jerry Prater then closed out the cere-
mony with prayer.

Camo frog ready for

hunting season


Advocate photographer Angel Lee found this very weird
frog on her Daddy Tank's shop. She thought he was a moth.
at first, but then he opened his eyes and looked at her arid
she realized that he was a "frawg." He doesn't have the
pink eyes of a true albino, and we don't know what he is.
