pleasant meeting." The
Cross City Lions, and some
other new Lions, were pre-
sented with pins by the Dis-
trict Governor Estelle
Clark.

At the conference
the Dixie County represen-
tatives delivered more than
two dozen pairs of used

Dixie Wranglers 4-H


go to the North Florida Fair


The club traveled to the
North Florida Fair in Tal-
lahassee, Florida and set
up a club booth, the theme
of which was to celebrate
100 years of 4-H in the
State of Florida (1909-
2009). Their booth high-
lighted some of the things
that children do in 4-H
such as contests, farming,
and cooking.

Their booth contained in-
formation about how to
join 4-H, and also con-
tained pictures from the
1970's of some Dixie's na-
tive 4-H'ers, leaders and
agents including: Carol
Berry Harold Berry, Deb-
bie Chavous, E.J. Cowen,
Linda Cowan, Matt
Cravey, Mrs. Dell Currie,
Ken Griner, Mrs. C.C. John-
son, Jr., Doreen Ganus
Lamb, Mrs. Mildred Mc-
Caskill, Cherie Bush Nor-
ton, Mrs. Bobbie Osteen,
Gary Pinner, Ronnie Pinner,
Jacquelin Croft Ponte, Don-
na Ganus Sanchez, Deborah
Ganus Walker and Mrs. WE
Whitfield.

Three of the children had
entries in the Harvest Veg-
etable Decorating contest.
Kason Carr placed 3rd in the


fifth grade division with his
Tim Tebow pumpkin;
Raigan NesSmith placed 2nd
in the third grade division
with her pink princess
pumpkin; and Jacob Nes-
Smith placed 3rd in the Pre-
K division with his cowboy
pumpkin.

On Saturday, November
14th, the club had two teams
travel to the fair for the
Agriculture Judging Con-
test. They placed 4th and
7th in the Junior Division.
Way to go kids!


On Friday, November 13th,
the Dixie Wranglers 4-H
Club had an entry in the
Dixie County Homecoming
parade. The club would like
to thank Trey Sanchez for
offering to pull these kids
with his tractor and trailer,
and thanks to Latashia Hen-
derson for all her help in
getting the trailer ready for
the parade, and to Ms.
Tracey Groom for making
the girls' hair ribbons!

2009 Dixie County Advocate


Setup for an acquittal?

We recently learned that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Walid
bin Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, All Abdul Azia, Ali and
Mustafa Almed al Hawsawi will be moved from Guan-
tanamo Bay military detention facility in Cuba to New York
City for trial on terrorism charges. In case the names are
unfamiliar, these six "suspects" are charged with master-
minding and/or complicity in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on
New York City and the Pentagon.

Presumably, they will be charged with first degree murder,
of which I agree with most Americans they are clearly
guilty; but I do not like the idea of granting them the le-
niency of our criminaljustice system, rather than subject-
ing them to trial by a military tribunal, as would be appro-
priate. These people are not accused of stealing cars or
even shooting someone in a bar room brawl, they are
charged with participating in terrorist activities perpetrat-
ed on our soil, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of
American citizens.

One problem would be that of disclosure. This would re-
quire that relevant aspects of the investigation and
specifics of the charges become matters of public record.
Such disclosure could involve the release of sensitive infor-
mation which would compromise our ongoing efforts to
combat terrorism both here and abroad. We would then be
left with a choice between releasing all relevant informa-
tion, which could help terrorist efforts, and withholding in-
formation vital to obtaining convictions--a "lose-lose"
proposition-- and don't you know that establishment liber-
als are well aware of that and are purely delighted at the
prosecution's dilemma?


Also, it is rumored that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was wa-
terboarded. Rumored, you say? Don't we know that he actu-
ally was waterboarded? Sure we do. I'm just avoiding the
appearance of certainty in order to be politically correct,
just like I'm saying this creep and the others are "suspects"
or "charged with" these crimes when, after all, there can
hardly be any doubt. Anyway, the Sheikh's lawyers could
insist that his confession was a result of "torture," and nev-
er mind that waterboarding has been used in college frater-
nity initiations, it could cause a liberal judge to throw the
whole thing out and free the culprits on the spot.


We need to remember that our criminal justice system was
designed to offer a presumption of innocence to American
citizens who might be falsely accused of a crime. The six
Gitmo detainees were belligerents engaged in acts of war
who were not uniformed soldiers protected by the Geneva
Convention. They are also not subject to the jurisdiction of
our criminal justice system unless someone in Washington
changes the rules. They could legally have been shot and
killed on the spot when they were captured. The very fact
that they were interred at Gitmo to await trial by a military
tribunal is an act of leniency on our government's part.
The above mentioned Gitmo detainees will now have a pha-
lanx of American lawyers whose fees will be paid by Iran,
or perhaps our own ACLU, and if not, by our longsuffering
taxpayers; and the proceedings, including appeals, could
drag on for months, even years. Meanwhile, New York City
residents would be living in fear of another major terrorist
strike if the Gitmo Six are ever executed. And what about
the jurors if they were convicted? And isn't this starting to
sound a bit like the 1994-95 O.J. trial?


President Obama says this is Attorney General Eric Hold-
er's decision, but I'm not buying that. Like most insecure
executives, Obama likes to micro-manage. Common sense
tells us it's his idea.

Other Gitmo inmates are being tried in military courts, as
they should be. I don't know about you, but I smell a setup
for an acquittal.

Chaos Theory


Sby, 'Kathy McKinney

'- ,My. life is chaos. Those of you who know me
personally are not surprised by this; if you're
my Facebook friend, my status updates alone will tell you
that I'm a few sandwiches short of a picnic basket most
days.

So, believe me when I say that this last week, the chaos level
in my life jumped by about 275%. Remember the column a
few weeks ago about how much I hate my vacuum cleaner?
Well, I decided--with almost no'forethought whatsoever-- to
go ahead and get the floors re-done in my house before the
holidays. I called the floor guy, thinking Billy would say,
sure, I'll get to it after Thanksgiving or hunting season or
something. Oh, no. He said, I'll be there tomorrow. And he
was. (Who does that? Apparently Billy does.)

I forgot it was Homecoming week. I forgot that I had com-
mited to do a bunch of stuff related to that. I forgot it was
my birthday weekend. I forgot that my clos-
et was knee-deep in JUNK. am
"I am ob
I've spent most non-working but waking messy, ps:
moments of the last week trying to move
stuff out of the way, move stuff back after
it's been in the way, and just generally fundamental r
thrbw stuff out. I'm starting over, more or It's an unfort
less. Sort of a big gigantic spring clean, in don't simp
fall. I didn't realize that I had so many leave
pairs of shoes. I really only wear two
pair...so why do I have like, 47 pairs lurking
in my closet? I found one pair of bedroom
slippers that I bought in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1986. I loved
those slippers, and they're still fine, even after years and
years of wear. I put them back in the closet.

Other shoes were not so fortunate. Most of 'em were cheap
Wal-Mart shoes; you know, the kind you buy when you have
to go to a funeral or family reunion or something and you
have nothing to wear? So then you go buy a new outfit, but
you don't have any shoes to match, so you get a new pair of
shoes, too, but they rub the backs of your heels or pinch
your toes so you throw them in the bottom of the closet and
never wear them again? Yeah, those shoes. I had lots and
lots of those. Had, being the operative word.

I have come to a decision in my life. I'm 41 years old this
week, and life isjust too darned short to wear hurty shoes.
(Yes; hurty is a word, I just made it up.) All the hurty shoes,
and anything older than my truck is going to the dump.

Dear editor:
Suwannee water and sewer
board met November 9, 2009
as scheduled. Three resi-
dents addressed the board
on operations staffing/bud-
get, water and sewer issues,
and audit by Davis and
Monk. Employee staffing
was discussed and the chair-
man suggested that the mat-
ter be referred to a work-
shop since it appeared that a
lengthy discussion might
ensue. A workshop was
scheduled for December
llth.

It was decided that an ad
should be placed requesting
applicants with a minimum
of class C water and class C
sewer licenses. After the ad
has run the board can legal-
ly begin the process of hir-
ing a dual operator. The
board has three resumes in
hand, two from local resi-
dents and one from the
Jacksonville area. Excerpts
from an e-mail received,
from the district follows:

To all good afternoon!
Based on phone calls in
which I polled the board it
was decided to have our op-
erator ad posted as follows:

TRI-CO. Bulletin, next 2
weeks (I haven't got exact
cost from them yet, but
based on previous postings
with them, I believe it will
come in around $50.00 for
the 2 weeks) FLORIDA
TIMES UNION Sunday
11/15 11/22 in the Times
Union 30 days on Yahoo Hot
jobs.7
Days on jobpage@ Jack-
sonville.com. And Friday in
the career paper.
Cost -- $831.00
GAINSVILLE SUN
2 consecutive Sundays (15
and 22nd) 30 days on mon-
ster.Com.
Cost $500.20

I have also e-mailed the ad
to the Florida Rural Water


Association for posting on
their website. It is also cur-
rently on the fwpcoa..org
website.

Under the "Contract Opera-
tor Rate Increase" we are
not being charged the 2
hour travel time previously
requested. The one hour a
day reduction for 7 days,
amounts to $455.00 per
week. A reduction of $23,660
annually. The contract oper-
ator has stated that he will
have a revised rate docu-
ment available at the next
meeting for the board's
approval; Remember there
will be a workshop open to
the public on December 11th
at the Suwannee Communi-
ty Center at 6 PM. The next
board meeting will be on De-
cember 14 at 6. PM at the
Community Center. If you
have any questions please
call or e-mail your board
members..

Peter H. Brower, Suwannee

Mr Browner and Suwannee:

I begin to see why you're having
issues with the budget. Before
you go spending more than
$1,300 on ridiculously priced
ads, you might want to post at
the Advocate's own dixiejobs
website and Craigslist. Both are
blessedly free and get more local
exposure than the paper in Jax-
onville. Dixie's unemployment
rate is high enough without
spending thousands of dollars
to bring in outsiders on purpose
to take desperately needed jobs
away from locals..--Editor


Lots of stuff is making the trip to blow-fly central. Old,
ugly clothes. Cheap and ugly balls of yarn I've been saving
for kid's projects, "someday" Metal coat hangers, that seem
to have been breeding in the closets like bunnies. Clothes
that I bought when Reagan was President. And my old dish-
washer, too.

You may remember a column I wrote last year sometime
about Zep and the Art of Dishwashing after my dishwasher
went to the great appliance junkyard in the sky It's been a
year, and I'm really, really so over the whole washing dishes
by hand thing. (You were right, Mary Shehane, the fun wore
off pretty quick--don't be so smug.) So Doug very kindly
came over to help, and we went and got a new dishwasher.
And some blinds. And some rugs. And the new "Up" movie.
And some other stuff. And...oh heck, let that be a lesson to
you...don't take me into Target with birthday money.

ANYWAY, with the chaos that my house is in, installing the
diswasher and blinds went something like this: "Kathy, do
you have a Phillips screwdriver?" And
I'd reply something like, "Yeah, I think
viously a complicated, it's in the bathroom sink under the
chologically damaged computer keyboard behind the cheese
weirdo and that is the grater."


qu reme o"r my j" '. It's all crazy like that. I wonder if I'll
late thing that people ever get my computer hooked back up.
Understand that and I wonder if I'll ever find out what I did
Stwith my hair brush. Some days I've
e to my padded cell." gone to bed thinking that I'll never,
-- Russell Crowe ever find anything ever again. And
then some mornings I wake up, and
walk out onto the new floor and almost wiggle with pleasure
like a puppy with the pure, cool smoothness of the (fake)
wood and the newness of it all.

The kitchen is all done and it looks fabulous. It really does,
with the new dishwasher there, humming along, getting all
the dishes spic-n-span without any help from me. It won't be
too long and all the floors will be done. And then maybe, a
few weeks, months, or years after that, I'll have everything
put away again.

So, please, kind readers, bear with me this week. Try to be
patient with any typos in headlines. Ignore pictures that
may be labelled incorrectly. Take no notice of horrid gram-
mar or misplaced ads. Just remember that out of great
chaos, comes eventual order.

Or a straightjacket and a rubber room....could go either way.


Dear editor:
I don't know if any of you
heard about "Bikers on Pa-
rade" that was held yester-
day (11/15/09), but I'm here
to tell you that it was heart-
warming.

Ronnie and I plus a few
thousand more participated
in "Bikers on Parade" yes-
terday in Gainesville. The
Parade is to give thanks to
our Law Enforcement offi-
cers, Firemen, First Respon-
ders, and Active Duty Mili-
tary personnel and our Vet-
erans.

You would not believe the
support that the town of
Gainesville showed. They
jined the streets with flags,
flags and more flags. Every-
one waved. The crowd
ranged from babies to very
old men and women. The
parade started at Santa Fe
College and circled around
town for 23 miles. We rode
for 1 1/2 hours. It has been
given the title of "Longest
Veterans day parade in the
United States".

The parade was lead by a
Hummer with two very spe-
cial men. Two soldiers from
the Battle of Iwo Jima.
They were not credited for
raising the flag, but they
were on the beach. They
both spoke and the sense of
pride was seen on both their
faces. When these two WWII
veterans spoke it was full of
love for our great country


It was a very patriotic day
Patriotism is not dead, but
sometimes you have to look
closely to see it. Yesterday
it was wide spread and very
apparent.

Bikers of all kinds were in
attendance. I have never
seen so many motorcycles
in my life in one place.
Thousands of bikers stood
perfectly still and quiet as a
moment of silence for our
soldiers in Ft. Hood were re-
membered. Again total si-
lence for the prayer that was
delivered. The enthusiasm
for Lee Greenwood's song,
"I'm proud to be an Ameri-
can" was overwhelming.
Several times Ronnie and I
felt our eyes mist over at the
patriotism shown in this
crowd.

This is the last ride for this
group. It was first put to: -
gether after 9/11/01 when
Ralph and Bonnie Cameron
wanted to do something to
give thanks to the firemen,
first responders and law en-
forcement officers that ran
toward the burning build-
ings after the terrorist flew
into the World's Trade Cen-
ter. It took them 42 days to
organize it.

In the last 9 years they have
raised over $510,000 for Red
Cross. They also presented
Santa Fe College a scholar-
ship to be given in the name
of "Bikers on Parade" for a
soldier returning home to
be able to attend college.
This will be an on-going
scholarship.

This was the first time that
Ronnie and I rode, but
friends of ours have ridden
in several of the parades in
the last 9 years. They say
this was the best. This will
be the last, unless someone
else steps forward and con-
tinues this great event.

Red (fish) shifted FWC assists with hostage


Taylor County: On Novem-
ber 5, Officer Chad Albrit-
ton was checking fishermen
at Peterson's Landing on the
Fenholloway River from a
concealed location. During
that time, Officer Albritton
observed a vessel contain-
- ing two occupants approach
the boat ramp. One passen-
ger exited the vessel and
began carrying a wet, white'
tee shirt with the sleeves
tied in knots to a parked ve-
hicle.

Officer Albritton identified
himself and inquired about
the contents of the tee shirt.
Upon inspection, he found
seven undersize redfish, five
undersize black drum and
one undersize spotted sea
trout.

During post Miranda, the
Suspect stated he'd caught
all fish contained in the tee
shirt and that he knew they
were all too short. The oper-
ator of the vessel possessed
one 18-inch redfish and one
15-inch spotted sea trout in-
side the live well of his ves-
sel as well.

TIrod / i ers


By Bonnie Wilson

This weekend I decided to
risk a chance at seeing a
possible horse for myself. As
you all know I lost my
beloved blue-eyed wonder
horse Dusty over the sum-
mer and I have been riding
Buddy, one of Dave's horses.
Buddy is a Quarter Horse
gelding, a big likeable sweet
fellow who stands 15.3
hands. I am a mere 5'2" and
it is a challenge to get on
board, if you know what I
mean.

As I was saying, some
friends of friends said I
should check out this little
Tennessee Walker, a mare
who stands at 14 hands.
Wow, I thought, this could be
good for me. The size was
perfect; I'll actually be able
to get on and off myself.

Although my husband Dave
was not totally sure about
this, he was supportive of
me and he said we could go
and check her out. We had a
trail ride scheduled for this
morning at Bear Head Ham-
mock
trail-
head
south of
Dunnel-
lon. I
called
my
trail-rid-
ing bud-
dies and
said I
was go-
ing to check on a horse and I
would not be joining them
this morning. They all
wished me luck.

We drove over to Morriston
with high expectations. Well
ok, I had high expectations!
Dave told me not to get my
hopes up until we saw her
and I rode her. But you
know me, I was so excited, I
could not control the excite-
ment I was feeling.

Lynda, the lady who owned
the mare named Zippy,
greeted us warmly and we
saddled up Zippy and anoth-
er one of her horses to take
a trail ride around her prop-
erty Zippy had a warm
sweet black face, kind eyes
and her body was a warm
chocolate in color. She
looked ok to me; go I got into
the saddle with no trouble,
imagine that! Dave adjusted
Smy stirrup lengths and Lyn-
da mounted her mare using
a mounting block because


she was a bit taller, at least a
hand higher and off we
went.

I noticed right away that
Zippy's gait was indeed nice.
That's what I've always en-
joyed about Walkers; their
gait is so comfortable. I
liked this and thinking this
could be a possibility Zippy
stayed close to Lynda's mare
as she led us around the
back of her property I soon
learned a few other things.
Zippy did not stop when I
asked her too. She was de-
termined to stay at Lynda's
mare's tail. She could not,
nor would not, be separated
from the other mare. From
the time we turned around
to head back to the barn,
Zippy was indeed "zipping"
along to get back to the barfi
as fast as her little legs
would carry her. Had she
not been as smooth as she
was, I surly would have.been
left on my duff in a huff on
the ground! So my "expecta-
tions" went right out the
window. I could not help but
compare this mare to my
past gelding. I simply fell in
love with Dusty and I did
not with this mare.

I thanked Lynda for the trail
ride
and I
told
her I'd
better
pass
on
Miss
Zippy. I
did
hope.
she
would,find the right person
for her. And as I headed
home I could not help but
think this-was a good expe-
rience. I will remember a
few valuable lessons from
this experience. 1) Don't go
with the idea, (no matter
what your friends say), that
this is the one before you see
and ride it. 2) Keep an open
mind until the ride is over.
And finally, 3) Make sure
she or he is not barn sour,
(one that doesn't want to
leave the yard, no matter
what), and you can stop
them when needed at any
time on the trail.

I still miss Dusty, and I
guess I always will. I think I
will always have a knot in
my throat as I look at other
horses. But for now, Buddy
is sweet and safe and we'll
just travel on together and
we will enjoy the ride. I
hope you do too. Until next
time, Happy trails to you!


U.S. Supreme Court Puts an
End to High School
Valedictorian's Fight to Defend
Right to Speak Freely About
Her Faith at Graduation

SThe United StatesSupreue
Court has refused to.hiear the
case of a high school valedic-
torian whose microphone
was turned off by school offi-
cials after she began speak-
ing about the part her Christ-
ian beliefs played in her suc-
cess in life. Attorneys for
The Rutherford Institute had
asked the Court to hear the
case of Brittany McComb,
charging that school officials
violated McComb's free
speech rights and engaged in
viewpoint discrimination
when they censored her
speech because of its Christ-
ian content. The Court is-
sued the order denying the
petition without additional
explanation.

"This is a sad day for the
cause of freedom," said John
W. Whitehead, president of
The Rutherford Institute.
"When the Supreme Court
cannot clear their calendar
to hear a case of this magni-
tude, then our freedoms are
in jeopardy. Such censorship
and discrimination should
not be permitted in Ameri-
ca."

In her speech, Brittany re-
flected on past experiences
and lessons learned at school:
and wrote about the empti-
ness she experienced from
accomplishments, achieve-
ments and failures in her
early high school years. She
then mentioned the fulfill-
ment and satisfaction she lat-
er came to experience in
something greater than her-
self, namely, in God's love,


and Christ. Upon receiving a
copy of Brittany's draft
speech, school administra-
tors proceeded to censor her
speech, deleting all three
Bible references, several ref-
erences to "the Lord" and the
only mention of the word
"Christ."

Believing that the district's
censorship of her speech
amounted to a violation of
her right to free speech, on
June 15, 2006, Brittany at-
tempted to deliver the origi-
nal version of her speech in
which she talked about the
role that her Christian be-
liefs played in her success.
The moment Brittany began
to speak the words, school of-
ficials cut off her micro-,
phone. Despite extensive
jeers fiom the audience over
the school officials' actions,
McComb was not permitted
to finish her valedictory
speech.

Brittany McComb filed a
First Amendment lawsuit
against Foothill High School
officials in July 2006. In June
2007, the U.S. District Court
for Nevada rejected the
school district's second at-
tempt to have the case dis-
missed and affirmed that the
lawsuit raises substantial
claims of infringement of
McComb's right of free
speech. School officials sub-
sequently appealed to the
Court of Appeals, which dis-
missed the case, holding that
McComb had no right to give
her speech, which it deemed
to be "proselytizing."

Video footage of McComb's
interrupted speech and The
Rutherford Institute's
Supreme Court petition are
available at www.ruther-
ford.org.

SPORTS & SCHOOL


From BEARS, page 1

The Bears kicked off to the
Panthers, and in short order
Stephen Godbolt recovered a
bobbled lateral play to put
the ball in the hands of Dix-
ie Quarterback Kameron
Keen. Keen working off
three first down plays,
passed to Mike West for a
touch down and the 7-11
combo (Cassidy and holder
Colson) added the extra
point. This would be the
only points scored in the
first quarter.

The second quarter started
with the Bears receiving a
punt from the Panthers at
the Dixie six yard line.
Stephen Godbolt, receiving
for Dixie County, poured on
the coal, and in an amazing
race with the Panthers chas-
ing close behind, returned
the punt 94 yards for the
touch down.

Cassidy booted in the extra
point and the Bears look like
they were going to walk
away with the game. At this
point the Bear defense had
to take control with Davis,
West and Jones making key
stops to prevent the Pan-
thers from gaining ground.
Late in the quarter the Pan-
thers force in a touch down
from the lyard line, but are
unable to complete the PAT.
The game got.tight for the
Bears in the last seconds of
the first half as the Pan-
thers connect on an eleven
yard pass to tie the score 14
to 14 at the half.

The Bears started the sec-
ond half with the ball, scor-
ing at the seven minute
mark on a quarterback

drive by giving big Wade
Wilkerson the ball. Wilker-
son drives in from about six
yards to score.

Cassidy adds one more and
the Bears take the lead
again. The Panthers, not
wanting to go down in de-
feat, score on their next pos-
session, fortunately for Dix-
ie County they fail on the
extra point attempt and the
Bears still hang on by one


point and control of the ball.

The Panther defense dug in'
giving the Bears a tough
time stopping any first
downs, so the Bears punt the
ball away with over a
minute left to play. This is
where the Bear defensive
line showed heart, soul and
guts. Seven plays tried by
the Panthers and seven
plays stopped by the Bears.
Starting with a tackle by

keeper from the three-
yard line. Cassidy again
hits his mark, and the
Bears have the lead 21-
14.With 45 seconds to play
in the third quarter, Pan-
thers have possession and
fumble, Mike West recov-
ers and makes the touch-
down, Cassidy adds the
extra point and the Bears
again have a comfortable
lead 28-14.

On the kickoff the Pan-
thers return it for a score,
but cannot get the extra
point, still closing the gap
28 to 20.The drama con-'
tinues into the fourth,
when at seven minutes
the Panthers tie the score
again, 28-28. Quarterback
Keen (having and out-
standing night playing
both sides of the ball)
steps up an moves the
ball down field fifty yards
in five plays, finishing the


Blacketer, then a
sack by Pierce, and
finally in the last
seconds of the
game a hail Mary,
long bomb pass, by
the Panthers bro-
ken up by Ward
and Jones to end
the game, OH my!

The Bears face

C.C.Johnson Jr.

June 08,1924 Nov 26,1999
It's been 10 years since God called a devoted husband and a
beloved father home. An entire decade has passed and we
have had to live and exist in this world without his love and
guidance. That hasn't been easy as all of us have needed him
at one time or another.
It's been said that losing a parent
is one of life's most traumatic
events.I now know the devas-
tating truth to that statement.
I've been told that, in time,
the hurt will fade, only to be
replaced with good memo-
ries that soothe the soul. Af- -
ter 10 years, I can finally ,
feel that happening.
Maybe it's because he cher-
ished our mother so much or
that he was a wonderful father
that taught us the importance of
integrity Maybe it's because he un-
derstood a hard day's work and what that
meant to his family Or maybe it's because he taught us about
Jesus Christ being our Lord and Savior. But more than any-
thing it's because he believed his biggest accomplishment in
life was his family
Daddy loved us more than he loved himself. When it became
too hard for him to live on, the pain that was the greatest for
him, wasn't his own, it was the pain he saw in us as we saw
him slipping away.
Daddy was a man that was kind and generous. He loved us all
with such joy and pride that'his face lit up every time.we
were together. There was never a time when I couldn't talk to
him or that he would offer advice (asked for or not). He was a
man that made sure his family was taken care of even if it
meant that he had to sacrifice something that was important
to him. It's comforting to know that his values and beliefs
have been instilled in all his children and grandchildren.
He believed that death is not an end if we live on in our chil-
dren and grandchildren. So if he lives on in us, then his body
is just a wilted leaf on the Tree of Life. Out of all the things
Daddy was...I am most proud that he was MY DADDY! I can't
wait until I see him again and will be forever grateful that he
taught us that "Whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish
but have evrlasting Life" in order for us to remember that,
"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength and
mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be
weary and they shall walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
We love you Daddy and until we meet again, we will be....
Your children: Gail, Mickey, Martha Ann, Sheba, Jerome and
Rebecca
And your loving wife, Rosa Lee Johnson

"She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me"

tagging quilts and having
the quilts judged. Around
150 quilts were on display in
the two buildings from local
quilters in and around the
tri-county area.

Many of the quilts were
judged and special ribbons
were given to each award re-

Never Give Up!
Arm Bar vs. A Punch in the Face

Imagine an attacker grab-
bing youby the shirt with
one hand and pulling back
the other hand into a fist
ready to punch you in the
face. What do you do?

One of my Assistant In-
structors,
Frank Tay-
lor, likes to
say, "Don't
block the oth-
er guy's fist
with your
face!"

In other
words, keep
your hands
up and know
how to pro-
tect yourself.
One of the best defense
moves for this particular
scenario is the Arm Bar.
Imagine the attacker grab-
bing your shirt on your
right shoulder with his left
hand, and is pulling back
his right fist to punch you.
S Do not try to pull
away That is the first im-
pulse of most people but
that would actually help
your attacker because you
would then be off balance.
S Reach across the
front of your body with
your left hand and grab his
(the one holding your shirt)
S Twist your hips to
the left and turn your shoul-
ders left.
S At the same time
hit the back of his left elbow
with your right forearm, us-
ing it as a bar across the
back of his arm.
S You can then make
your escape.

This may sound a little com-
plicated but with training
and practice it is easy to
learn and becomes natural.
A word of caution; be very
careful practicing this, or
any, defensive move. Go
slow and easy so no one gets
hurt during practice. Kids
should not try this without
adult supervision. A profes-


sional instructor can teach

Stuff to Do


Not A Creature Was
Stirring ... not even a
moose

Suwannee Valley Players
announces the opening for
its upcoming production of
Not a Creature Was Stirring
... not even a moose, a come-
dy written by Pat Cook. Edi-
tor JJ Garnes of the Herald
Tribune makes sure to use
the holiday to his own ad-
vantage, whether it be to ex-
pose a crooked mayor or sell
a few more issues with just
the right angle. And he
thinks he finds it when he
finds a letter from a small
boy who "don't want no
more Christmases." Delilah
and Sarah, his assistants
are equally cynical until
they find a "Wish Moose", a
Christmas ornament that
grants their wishes. Do they
believe? It is up to Barney,
the janitor, to show them
how to develop the Christ-


mas Spirit. Wishes do begin
to come true with hilarious
consequences weather it is
Garnes, dressed as Santa
falling out of a crop duster
or maybe St. Nick himself
showing up. This fast paced
tribute to Frank Capra has
you laughing with a lump in
your throat with all the sea-
sons warmth and wit.The
show will open on Dec. 4th
at 8:00 pm and have shows
on Dec. 5th at 8 and 6th at
2:30. The following weekend
the shows will be Dec. 11th
at 8 pm and on Saturday the
12th there will be a special
matinee at 2:30 pm with the
evening show starting at 8;
on Sunday the 12 the show
will be at 2:30. Tickets for
Not a Creature Was Stirring
are $10 for students (grades
p-k-12) and seniors (65 and
up) and $12 for general ad-
mission; under 3 admitted
free. Bring the whole family
to enjoy this Holiday event.

Festival of Lights Just
Around the Corner


The 21st annual Festival of
Lights and Christmas Boat
Parade is approaching very
fast. Have you marked your
calendar for Saturday, the
12th of December, to bring
the family out to the Fort
Fanning Park for a full day of
fun? There will be quite an
assortment of crafts to
browse through and perhaps
find that special gift you have
been looking for. While the
ladies are going through the
various crafts, most of the
men folk will be checking out
all of those Classic Cars on
display. But then some of the
ladies like to join them to see
what they are up to! Some of
these beauties bring back a
lot of fond memories and
gives the younger folks some-
thing to remember as well.

There will be a wide variety
of musical styles that should
appeal to everyone. Dotti
South and the Slackers will
be performing material from
her forthcoming second al-
bum. David Clay's Black
Creek Band will feature
Classic Rock, while the Rick
Gordon Band.will take the
stage with vintage, contem-
porary and original County
tunes. All three of these
groups are expected to play
some Christmas favorites as
well. The Mercy Mountain
Boys are an award-winning,
traditional Southern Gospel
trio from Lake City.,

The Foggy Creek Band, a
Bluegrass- styled group, will
offer their acoustic take on a
wide ranged variety of mu-
sical styles. Edify is the
praise band from Christian
Fellowship Community
Church under the direction
of Tom Powell. The Fanning
Springs Community Church,
under the direction of Pas-
tor David Jones, will lead
the Christmas carol sing-
along on the riverbank lead-
ing up to the beautiful
Christmas Boat Parade.

We have had some great

beautiful wooden bench hand
carved with horses on the
back panel, Dixie Music do-
nated an Ibanex Acoustic
Guitar, Toy for Tots donated
a very nice Wooden Rocker,

ing salt & pepper shakers.

Be sure to get your rubber
ducks picked out from one of
the Suwannee River Boat
Club members. With about
2,000 of them being put into
the river at 3:30, it is exciting
to watch them and see if you
can figure out which of them
will be the winners. The
first three ducks to cross the
finish line win a nice cash
prize and a trophy

It is not too late to get your
applications in for the Festi-
val of Lights and Christmas

NOTICE OF DETERMINATION OF QUALIFICA-
TION FOR NOTICE GENERAL PERMIT

IN THE MATTER OF AN APPLICATION FOR A
DETERMINATION OF QUALIFICATION FOR
AN NOTICE GENERAL PERMIT
BY: CENTRAL FLORIDA ELECTRIC COOPER-
ATIVE, INC. C/O JAMES L. MCCLEAN, MC-
CLEAN ENGINEERING COMPANY, INC. PO
BOX 2587, MOULTRIE, GA31776

DEP FILE NO 15-288616-001-EG, COUNTY OF
DIXIE

The Department of Environmental Protection
gives notice tha tit has determined that the pro-
ject to construct power lines and electrical sup-
port structures as an electric utility parallel to
State Road 349, Dixie County, not within an
aquatic preserve by Central Florida Electric Co-
operative, Inc. c/o James L. McLean qualifies
for the Notice General Permit established under
statute Chapter 373 and Rule 62-341.620, Flori-
da Administrative Code.

The Department's determination shall become
final unless a timely petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed under sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The time and
procedure for petitioning for a hearing are set
forth below. Upon the timely filing of a petition,
this determination will not be effective until fur-
ther order of the department.

A person whose substantial interests are affect-
ed by the Department's decision may petition for
an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the informa-
tion set forth below and must be filed (received
by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000. The petitioner shall also mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated at the time of filing.

Petitions must be filed within.21 days of publica-
tion or receipt of this written notice, except taht
a petition by any person entitled to written no-
tice under section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes must be filed within 21 days of receipt
of the written notice. The failure of any person
to file a petition within the appropriate time peri-
od shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statutes. Any subsequent interven-
tion (in a proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the presiding offi-
cer upon the tiling of a motion in compliance
with rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administra-
tive Code.

A petition must contain the following information:
a. The name, address and telephone number of
each petitioner; the Department file Identification
number and the county in which the subject
matter or activity is located;
b. A statement of how and when each petitioner
received notice of the Department action;
c. A statement of how each petition's substantial
Interests are affected by the Department action;
d. A statement of the material facts disputed by
the petitioner, if any;
e. A statement of facts that the petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or modlficatin of the De-
partment action;
f. A statement of which rules or statutes the peti-
tioner contends require reversal or modification
of the Department action; and
g. A statement of the relief sought by the peti-
tioner, stating precisely the action that the peti-
tioner wants the Department to take.

A petition that does not dispute the material
facts on which the Department's action is based
shall state that no such facts are in dispute and
otherwise shall contain the same information as
set forth above, as required by rule 28-106.301.

Because the administrative hearing process is
designed to re-determine the Department's de-
termination, the filing of a petition means that
the Department's final determination may be dif-
ferent from the determination stated in this no-
tice. Persons whose substantial Interests may
be affected by any change in the Department's
determination have the right to petition to be-
come a party to the proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set forth above.

Mediation under section 120.573 of the Florida
Statutes is not available for this proceeding.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS

Sunday was another beautiful day at Faith. Our crowd was
down but that was due to several different things. Just
wanted to let you know that Faith had no church Sunday
night and will not have any again Wednesday night due to
the tent revival and giving everyone an opportunity to at-
tend that.

The message was great and so was the special music. We
had several visitors and we want them to know how special
the are and what a blessing they are to us. If you were one
of our visitors, we hope you went away saying that it was
good to be in the House of the Lord. If you're looking for a
church home, we invite you to share ours and if you were
just passing through, we invite you back anytime to wor-
ship with us.

Remember this week to pray for the sick and the ones who
are in the hospitals.and es-
pecially pray for the lost.
God will bless you for it.
Until we meet again, we
love you and will be praying
for you. -
