Old Town Man killed in

Alachua County accident


Robert D. Webster, 72, of
Old Town, was fatally in-
jured on Wednesday morn-
ing just east of Gilchrist
County when his 1989 Mer-
cury Sable crossed the dou-
ble yellow center line into
the path of a 2006 Freight-
liner. The semi attempted
to avoid a collision, but Mr.


Webster's car was struck by
the truck's tandems.
Mr. Webster was pro-
nounced deceased on the
scene by an Alachua Coun-
ty paramedic. Both drivers
were reportedly wearing
seatbelts. An investigation
is pending.

Dixie's dropout rates

second highest in state,

graduation rates average


According to a release from
the Florida Department of
Education, Dixie County's
school dropout rate for the
2008-2009 school year was
5.1%. This represents al-
most an entire percentage
point jump from the 4.3%
rate the year before. Only
Franklin County had a
higher dropout rate in 2008-
09, at 5.4%.
Dixie wasn't alone, Levy
County's rate jumped from
2.9 percent to 4.2% in the
past year.. Gilchrist County
came out smelling like a
rose with the lowest rate
statewide; an amazing
dropout rate of just .2%, a
half percent drop from the
2007 rate of .7%. The state
average is 2.3%.


The dropout rate is calculat-
ed and reported for all chil-
dren in grades 9-12 who
drop out of school. Florida's
dropout rate is a single-year
indicator that compares the
number of dropouts in
grades 9-12 to the total 9-12
students enrolled at any-
time during a single year.
Dixie's 2008-2009 graduation
rates fare better than Levy
County's, according to the
release, hovering around
the 76% state average, at
74%. Levy only graduates'
approximately 67% of high
school students. Again,
however, Gilchrist County
blows them both out of the
water with graduation rates
of 95%.

It could'a happened to anybody


People ought to quit messin' with Tiger Woods over that lit-
ftle incident he had just recently I don't think it's necessari-
ly true that he did anything wrong. I mean, a little thing
like this could happen to anybody

If a guy lives in a neighborhood that has a fire hydrant
right near his driveway, there's no reason why he should
necessarily know it's there. After all, he's a'golf pro, not a
fireman. With all due respect to the brave men who fight
fires, how many of them could evyex rate an invite to partic-
ipate in the PGA Championship tournament?

As for that tree, well of course he knew it was there! Only,
when you cut the corner a little too close while you're back-,
ing out of your driveway, and you accidentally happen to
hit a fire plug, your natural instinct is to move in the other
direction, and it's not surprising that Tiger moved a little
too far and too fast under the circumstances. There's just
no reason to think that he felt threatened and was trying to
get away from somebody!

And all of a sudden, the poor guy finds himself trapped in
his car. The doors won't open.and the windows won't roll
down. This can happen. He could have been there for hours.
before anyone noticed he was missing.

At this point, we all need to understand that Tiger Woods-
was not charged with driving under the influence, so we
must assume he was not slipping out for a six-pack. Person-
ally, I think he probably just planned on going down to the
all-night convenience store on the corner to pick up a pack-
age of Band-Aids, just in case some lacerations might occur
from some unforeseen incident. A conscientious man wor-
ries about that sort of thing, you know, even at 2:31 AM.

We've also got to give Tiger's wife a lot of credit here. How
many women, having heard the sounds of a car crash in
their front yard, would have had the presence of mind to
grab a golf club, run down the driveway and bust out the.
back window so that her main man could escape with only
a few minor scratches--which he undoubtedly sustained
while making, his way through those razor-sharp glass
shards clinging to the window frame.

Seriously, wouldn't a golf club have been the logical thing
for Mrs. Woods to grab? Remember, Tiger Woods is a golfer,
not a baseball player, so there would undoubtedly have been
plenty of golf clubs available. Had he played baseball, she
would logically have picked up a ball bat for whatever it
was she had in mind at that time. Had he been a big game
hunter...well, we won't go into that- -

Since all this happened, we've heard no end of stories about
how Tiger was supposedly playing around on his wife. It's
in all those tabloid magazines that people read while
they're standing in the checkout line at the supermarket.
Sometimes, a story catches your eye and you look around to
see if anybody you know is watching, then you slip it under
a copy of your newspaper and hope nobody notices except
the girl at the checkout counter, who you suddenly realize is
dating your son, so you hasten to explain to her that it's for
your old maid aunt, then hope she doesn't ask junior if you
really have an old maid aunt.

So the rumors persist, and while some cynical types are
saying that, while this won't hurt Tiger's golf game (once
he gets his 9-iron straightened out), it could adversely im-
pact his squeaky-clean image as far as those lucrative prod-
uct endorsements are concerned. Well, perhaps so, but
there are plenty of quality products advertised right there
in those tawdry tabloids that would pay top dollar for an en-
dorsement by a celebrity who has experienced'a moderate
setback in his career.

Tiger just needs to remember, it hasn't been all that long
since they were saying the same things about John Ed-
wards.

^i Why I'm not knitting you socks for Christmas


b Kathy McKinney

.- ''"You're getting socks and underwear for
Christmas. That's it. You've been too bad to
deserve anything else." I've probably said that a million >
times in the last few years. When you're a kid, socks and
underwear are the ultimate Grinch gift: no fun, just practi-
cal, hum-drum and dull.

And yet, for some reason, most of the grownups I know
want socks for Christmas. Especially those who casually
walk by when I'm knitting a pair somewhere. "Oh, are those
for me?" Um, no. Those are for me. Always.


It's not that I don't like knitting for other
people, I do. My sister has a few pairs of
my socks. I've made a couple for my daugh-
ter. (My middle one; the oldest informed me
that she'd rather be shot than wear any-
thing hand-knit. Apparently wool is unfash-
ionable in sorority-girl circles.) ANYWAY, I
have made some for other people, but only
the select few who I know have seen me go
through the sock-making process and who
have some appreciation for the effort in-
volved...the people who can be trusted to
follow the care instructions for $25 a skein
superwash wool: wash on gentle cycle, and
absolutely, never, ever, put them in the dry-
er. The people who care about (or who can'
be bullied into) caring about the socks I
made for them are the only ones I knit for.


Everybody tells


They need lots of those in frigid Afghanistan and the hand-
knit ones out of brown and black wool are the best. Knitters
all over are sending them to the troops. (If you've got some
spare time, the pattern's on Ravelry.com, I'm just sayin'.)

Knitters like to knit for other people, but each sock, each
mitten, even each quickie garter-stitch scarf--is days and
days of our lives. Knitting sort of soaks up the content-of
your brain when you're not looking. I can't pick up this'
turquoise shawl I'm working on without going back to the
plane ride to Portland where I started it. Some fingerless
mitts that I made from the leftovers of a prize-winning yarn
I bought on that trip remind me of the socks from that yarn
I gave to the Hospice patient my sister made-friends with
while she was taking care of Big
s me that they would Granny. I wonder if she liked them? I
.. .... .... never got to meet her.


love to Knit, bDt iney don't nave time.
I look at people's lives and I can see
opportunity, and time for knitting all
over the place. The time spent riding
the bus each day? That's a pair of,
socks over a month. Waiting in line?
Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of
wasted time that could be an
exquisite lace shawl.

-Stephanie Peart-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations
for Women Who Knit Too Much


Socks are humble little things; especially in our machine-
made culture. You can buy them in six or eight packs for
less than you'd spend on a hamburger and fries. I've known
some men who, instead of going through the drudgery of
washing them, who just go and buy a new pack when they
get dirty Most people place almost no value on the lowly
sock. Why should they? Socks are cheap, and are made to
get dirty and stinky They get tromped through mud. They
get holes and end up as sad little button-eyed puppets or
dust rags. Dogs play tug-of-war with them.

So why am I so picky about who I knit them for? Because
socks are a lot of work. We forget that in this "lets just get a"
shipment over from China" age. Back during WWII, kids
were recruited to knit socks for soldiers because we didn't
have enough of them.. Even now, they need people to knit--I
don't know what the military term is--those helmet-liner
things that go under helmets in the winter? Yeah, those.

Dear Editor,

I'm sorry to say that Mr.
Preston Chavous is at it
again. He is trying to cause
trouble just for the fun of it.
As for his freedom of
speech, he certainly is enti-
tled to that, I will fight to
the death for his rights, but
not for him to tell lies on
other people.

As far as Suwannee Water
& Sewer goes, we have all
heard different stories and
know some of the things he
writes are just not true. I
think Mr. Chavous is being
used by someone else to
make these untrue state-
ments.

Mr. Chavous, I do exist but
my partner wants none of
the retaliation you and
your friends seem to be able
. to inflect, just because you
can. You are the one that
does not respect other peo-
ples right to freedom of
speech. I've done some
checking of my own and Mr.
Chavous doesn't pay very
much tax on his properties.
Mundon Camp is in his
mother's name and she
claims Homestead
Exception on that property
For some reason it is ac-
cessed at only'$14,500.00.
Have you seen the place, he
is operating an RV Park and
rents cabins?

In one of Mr. Chavous's pre-
vious letters to the editor he
stated that his mother lives
on Chavous Road between
Old Town and Cross City,
that has been owned by the
Chavous Family since 1905. I
checked and she is regis-
tered to vote in district four
and always has voted there.
Suwannee is district #3. She
does not live in Suwannee at
Mundon Camp. Therefore,
does not qualify for Home-
stead Exception.

I checked with Citrus Coun-
ty about how Homestead Ex-
ception is applied for
there. I did not think that


asking anyone in Dixie
County these questions
would get me any answers.
To qualify you have to own
property claiming it as your
permanent home address, '
live there on January 1 and
vote in that district. Your
voter's registration, driver's
licenses & identification
have to reflect this address.
You can homestead a busi-
ness, but the portion that is
lived on is sectioned off and
the rest of the property is
subject to property value
increases. I would believe
that the same would apply
to Dixie County

You can check on anyone

If Dixie County would as-
sessed the property taxes as
required by law maybe the
taxes wouldn't be so high
for some and nothing for '
others.
Carolyn Johnson
Suwannee, FL

Ms. Johnson:

As a real estate appraiser, I
can tell you that all of the
County's assessments are
monitored and regulated by
the Department of Revenue
and that the County Property
Appraiser's office is doing
very well with a difficult
rural, and economically
challenged situation.

I'd also like to take off my
editor hat and add on a per-
sonal note that attacking a
90+ year old mother to try to
get to her son lacks class and
defeats any possible validity
to your argument .--Editor


The wool soaks up memories of TV
shows watched while knitting, of peo-
ple, situations, even frustration.
There's this one sock that is stuck in
my drawer, probably forever. I started
it and finished it; but not before I de-
veloped an abiding hate for the pat-
tern. I can't make myself throw it
away, and I can't force myself to make
it's mate. It makes me angry just look-
ing at it sometimes, so it lives in the
back of the sock drawer, forever single
and forlorn. Handmade things seem to
absorb our feelings, our
emotions...they're the essence of "it's


the thought that counts" when it comes to gift-giving. Giv-
ing away a pair of hand-knit socks that I've spent a month
making is like handing over a piece of myself. It's not easy
to do. So I usually don't.

There's a law knitters call the "Curse of the Boyfriend
Sweater." It never fails. If you are dating a man and you
foolishly decide to knit him a sweater, the relationship will
be over before you finish the sweater. (Especially if he's 6'4"
and wears a size XXL.) I'm not sure if the same thing holds
for socks and friendships, but that's a risk I'd rather avoid.

If you are lucky enough that somebody makes you some-
thing with their own hands this holiday season, try to appre-
ciate the effort involved. Don't fall into the modern trap of
thinking that hand-made=tacky or cheap. Anyone who can
give you something that they made themselves is giving you
that; a piece of themselves, Value it accordingly


Dear Editor: is unlikely


The Florida Senate is debat-
ing the SunRail legislation.

In a nutshell, this is a pro-
posal to relieve traffic con-
gestion in Central Florida.
We do not believe it is a
wise investment of our tax
dollars for the following rea-
sons:

1) The track history of pub-
lic rail transit projects is
not good. Amtrak has lost
money consistently, and this
is for a purpose better-suit-
ed to rail transportation (i.e.
long distance vs. local trans-
portation).


2) This makes
use of $2.8 bil-
lion of the feder-
al "stimulus"
money, which is
in fact our tax
money We are of
the position this
money would be
better used by
not using it (and
lowering the
spending and re-
sulting debt).
The federal gov-

try One estimate from the
CATO Institute puts the pro-
jected cost at $90 billion
(this piece contrasts inter-
state highways with rail
lines). The shortfall will be
made up with our tax mon-
ey

3) The Florida State budget
has a gap of over $1 billion
as of this year. As with the
federal government, it is not
a wise financial move to
spend this amount of mon-
ey when we are already
short on funds. There is an
allegation that after the ini-
tial government outlay of
money, the private sector
will bear the costs. Using
history as a reference, this


4) We think that if this is a
good (i.e. profitable) idea, a
private firm would have un-
dertaken the project. The
fact they have not is indica-
tive that it will be yet anoth-
er money drain on the state.

5) The plan will fail to
achieve it's stated objective.
The proposed route and
plan of operation does not
alleviate the congestion, as
commuters will still need to
make use of ground trans-
portation to get to and from
the train stations. It will
serve only a narrow section
of the area on a north-south
axis.

By Bonnie Wilson

This week my husband Dave
and I decided to take a ride
over to Inglis Island for a
trail ride of our own. I ad-
mit I have not been here too
often as it always brings
back meniories of a ride
about 4 years ago that took
me to the hospital with a
broken shoulder. But as usu-
al I'm ahead of myself so
lets back up a bit.

It was a dreary, cold, damp,
windy day in January that
our horse club had planned
a ride at Inglis Island. I have
- to say
I was
a bit
appre-
hen-
sive
about
this
trip
for a
num-
ber of reasons. 1) the weath-
er 2) it was a mere 10 days
till we headed out for our
bluegrass cruise 3) just an
uneasy feeling.

I put my fears aside and.
Dave and I headed out with
our horses to meet our .
friends. As we arrived the
weather was really no bet-
ter, still windy and cold and
mainly gray skies ahead.
Our group was mostly there
and ready to ride, so we sad-
dled our horses and were
soon headed out to the trail.
Dusty and I followed Dave
and Gus thru the windy
trail with palmetto bushed
rattling on both sides of us.
Moss covered trees looked
frightful as they swung in
the breeze. I held tightly on
my reins and stroked
Dusty's neck, trying to give
him the reassurance I really
did not feel.

Suddenly with no apparent
warning Gus jumped about
three feet in the air and
kicked his hind feet behind
him as though he were of
the royal Lipazon Stallion
family! It was a tricky mo-

Jay Bryant Lytle Road
On the outskirts of Jena, there's an old rock road
That carries the weight of many a load
And down this road lives a legend of a man
who built his home from the old virgin land
It runs to the river and then turns around
And that's where the Lytles can be found
At the edge of this river, down in the swamp
There's streams and caves with old cypress stumps
Jay Bryant Lytle is a hell of a man
And when he says something, that's where he stands
He is in his 70's, that's what I was told
But in my heart he will never grow old
He made his living by the sweat of his brow
Done it back then and can still do it now
So if you want to listen and you know the code
You can find him on Jay Bryant Lytle Road

Often times, when
someone is at-
tacked, especially
women and chil-
dren, the attacker
grabs them
around the throat
attempting to
make them sub-
mit by choking
them. Here is one
way to escape a
Front Choke Hold:

Drop your
hips by bending your knees
slightly


* Step back just
enough to pull you attacker
off balance.

Put your right arm
over the top of the attackers
left arm at the elbow.


Turn quickly and
with force. The pressure on
the elbows will make the at-
tacker let go of your throat.


This may sound a little com-
plicated but
.. is actually
a very easy
.rmove. An

* Weave your right
hand under the opposite el-
bow of the attacker. In other
words, go over the first el-
bow and under the second.

* Put your left hand
together with your right,
like praying hands, under
the attacker's right elbow.
Point your praying hands
straight up.

* Turn your hips to
the right, then your shoul-
ders.

* Lift up with both
hands against the attacker's
right elbow. This will put
pressure up under the at-
tacker's right elbow and
down on top of the left el-
bow.

Please pray for THE LORD
to do HIS will in Timothy's
life. Thank you Harry

ORGANIZING MEETING-
NO AMNESTIES FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS

Friday, December 11th at 7:00 PM
Cross City Women's Club

Congress is ready to launch another "reform" of U.S. immi-
gration policies. The intent is to give legal status and a
"path to citizenship" for the 12 to 15 million illegal aliens
estimated to be in the United States.,

Florida has an estimated 950,000 illegal aliens according to
the Federation for American Immigration Reform. A re-
cent study by that organization estimated that it cost Flori-
da taxpayers $3.7 billion in 2008 for these illegal residents
in our state, more than twice what it cost in 2005.

Come join us to learn how you can help stop this disastrous
legislation.

The Women's Club is behind the Dixie County Court House.
If you cannot attend, call Marie Cordell at 498-2865 to be .
notified of future meetings.

Local


E very (Christ-
v .* as I get a
Vv 6ft in my craw.
Last year I made cinnamon
glue ornaments. Year before
I made fleece scarves and
hats for all the kids. This
year it's dried fruit orna-
ments. Lots of dried fruit or-
naments. I dried fruit for
three days. I don't know why-
I can't do a few different
crafts. Nope, for me it's all
or nothing. Heather Dixon
happened to mention casual-
ly that she was making
dried fruit that day and
that's all it took. I immedi-
ately got the directions from
her and sent my son to the
store to get me a 5 lb. bag of
apples and a 5 lb. bag of or-
anges. I also had him buy
some lemons. Piece of ad-
vice. Don't do the lemons.
They turn black. Heather's
recipe is easy


For dried oranges slice the
orange into cross sections
about % in. thick and place
them in the oven, You can
place them on a piece of
parchment paper or on a
metal cooling rack. You bake
them at 275 degrees for 1
hour and then lower the
temperature to 225 for 2
more hours. You can rub
some cinnamon into the
slices before baking if de-
sired.
For dried apples, slice them
about % in. thick. Mix 2
cups of lemon juice with 3
tsp of salt and soak the ap-
ple slices for 30 minutes to .
stop browning. Another sug-
gestion was to soak them in
lemon lime soda. Make sure
both sides get completely
covered. Pat them dry with a
paper towel and brush the
slices lightly cinnamon.
Place them in a cookie sheet
or onto parchment paper in


the oven at 150 degrees for 6
hours. They are ready to be
used. One suggestion is to
hang them from the tree us-
ing raffia.
I got the dehydrator from
the top of Billy's shop. Dug
to the bottom of a drawer
and got the mandolin (fancy
name for a slicer). Luckily I
had some lemon-lime soda
because Dqvid brought
home the little squeezy
lemon that maybe has '% cup
juice in it. Now begins the
descent in madness. I could-
n't find the safety guard for
the slicer but told myself I
would be fine. I began slic-
ing. Perfect slices. One or-
ange, two oranges...now I'm
full steam ahead. Suddenly, I
have removed a perfect slice
of skin from the palm of my
hand. (the queasy may want
to quit reading) After half a
roll of paper towels and
some kind of spray stuff
that made me run around
the house like a scalded hog,
the.bleeding continued. I de-
cided to ask for suggestions
from my online buddies.
Some of the advice was med-
ically sound. Steady pres-
sure and hold it above your
heart. Former Dixie County
resident, Mike Gant suggest-
ed cobwebs. Since I live in
the 21st century and wasn't
on a survival show, I disre-
garded that one. One of my
friends suggested a layer of
bologna, because bologna is
like skin...then duct
tape...then a layer of let-
tuce... then duct tape...this
continued until it sounded
like a Dagwood sandwich.
Personally I think someone
had been nipping at the jug!
Someone even suggested go-
ing to the doctor! Crazy talk!
I knew it wasn't serious just
very-messy Then two differ-
ent suggestions made sense.
One was to use a teabag. The


tannins in the tea bag are
supposed to help stop bleed-
ing. Another friend, newly-
wed Liz Vaughn, suggested
duct tape to help with apply-
ing steady pressure. I decid-
ed to combine these two sug-
gestions. I ended up with
what looked like a cast made
of duct tape. It wasn't a neat
job but everything seemed to
be working. I did make sure
I still had circulation. The
next morning the bleeding
had stopped. There were a
couple of drawbacks. One,
was my hand was stained
brown from the teabag. The
other was the realization
that I had become a punch
line in a Jeff Foxworthy
joke. You might be a red-
neck... if you've ever had a
tea bag duct taped to your
hand.
Even after all the drama, I
really enjoyed making the
ornaments. They are so pret-
ty and smell so good. I
strung the fruit on some
twine and tied cinnamon
sticks to them. I felt very
crafty! If you are on my gift
list, don't worry I'm going to
give the blood stained ones
to family only
I would love to hear from
you. E-mail me any tips that
have your life easier.
Your favorite recipe. Is there
something you would have
loved to have known when
you were first starting out?
Is there something you did
that you vowed never to do
again? Drop me a line. Noth-
ing is too small. I will love
hearing from you. We are all
in the same boat. There will
always be empty bellies and
dirty dishes. Dust on the
table and dirt on the floor. A
little bit of humor and ad-
vice can make the trip so
much easier. ,

CALVARY TEMPLE
NEWS

The family of Calvary
Temple would like to wish
you all a joyful Christmas
season. Occasionally we at
Calvary like to take the op-
portunity to give an update
on the happenings of Cal-
vary We appreciate our local
papers providing this plat-
form.
The year of 2009 has been a
good year for the church. In
spite of all the gloom and
doom that hangs over our
nation it has not affected the
church negatively God, as
always, continues to bless
and provide. Several new
families have joined our fel-
lowship, the overall spiritual
well-being of our church is
probably better than it has
ever been, the Prison Min-.
istry has experienced many
conversions, Kid's Church
continues to do well and we
now have a new Wednesday
night Teen Class. As we ap-
proach 2010 we do so with
great expectation as we
move into the future, a fu-
ture that God has ordained,
not Satan,.A much greater
emphasis will be placed on
prayer as we mount an of-
fensive against the enemy.
Beginning the first Wednes-
day in January Wednesday
night prayer meeting will
become exactly that, a
prayer meeting. While Mary
prayed, Martha served; a
time for prayer and a time
for refreshing fellowship. We
will be having a Gospel Sing
every-other month in 2010
beginning Sunday Jan.24th.
The months that we do not
have a sing we will be hav-
ing a Fellowship Night on a
Wednesday with different
themes as well as a guest
speaker that month.
One of the things that God
has placed in my spirit has
to do with signs, wonders,
and miracles. Yes, I do belive
that God still does these


things whatever they might
include. In fact, scripture
teaches that the ministry of
Jesus was confirmed by
these very things (Acts 2:22).
This continued through the
ministry of the Apostles and
the Early Church (Acts 2:43
and others). Phillip and
Stephen who were not apos-
tles but church elders expe-
rienced the same type
things. Since (Rev. 14:6) de-
clares the Gospel to be an
everlasting gospel (unchang-
ing) then it is my belief that
we should be experiencing
the same things today For
what purpose? The same as
recorded in the. Bible, they
confirmed the preached
Word; they attracted the lost
to hear the gospel which in
turn produced multitudes
being saved. In my studies,
the only thing I have found
to hinder these manifesta-
tions (confirmations) is un-
belief (Mark 6), What do we
expect? Since the Word has
not changed, God has not
changed, Jesus has not
changed, and the gospel is
an everlasting gospel, then I
suppose we could expect the
same results. What exactly
occurs will of course will be
left up to God who remains
omnipotent (Almighty) in
power.
It seems that we have a
choice. We can either go
with the heavy flow of
gloom and doom, retreat
into a cave of fear and doubt


with little expectation all
the time talking about how
bad things are, or, we can do
what the Bible tells us "and
live this life by faith" and
move forward trusting in
God. Hope, faith, optimism
and determination will take
you through the times ahead
and provide a powerful testi-
mony for Jesus; Retreat will
only give the enemy more
ammunition to use against
us.. It is time for the church
(all) "To Make Plans, Not Ex-
cuses!" If what we are say-
ing bears witness with your
spirit, then perhaps you ,
would like to worship with.
this church family If so, you
are more than welcome to
help us press ahead. Sunday
@ 10:30 Wed. @ 7:00.

TIME

Santa is on the way
and all the children are get-
ting excited to visit with
him and let him know what
they are wishing for under
the Christmas tree. Toy for
Tots will be taking pictures,
and helping Santa all day
long as they give each child
a gift for stopping by to visit.
The Marine Corps
League will start off the day
with the Flag Raising cere-
mony at 9:00 o'clock followed
by some announcements
and Christmas songs by our
MC's Gina and Laura. You
will want to browse through
the many booths that will

The variety of foods tempt-

resist as the aroma will real-
ly tell you it is time to eat!
Of course, you must browse
through the many classic
cars that will be on display.
These oldies*come from far
and wide and you can tell
that the owners are very
proud of their beauties.
They all are trying to win
the Best of Show Cruising

nounce the winners at 3:00
PM.
Entertainment will be non-

Boat Parade will get under-
way. We have a number of
entries this year and the ex-
citement is really building.
This is a spectacular time as
the boaters have spent a lot
of time decorating their
boats with many Christmas
lights and ornaments. Hun-
dreds of people will be lin-
ing the banks of the river to
watch. Bring along a flash-
light to light your way and
also to signal the boats as
they pass by so they will
know you are watching and
cheering them on. Please
bundle up against the cool
evening weather. Parking at
the Fort Fanning Park is
FREE and the Fanning
Springs State Park will have
parking available. The Way-
side Park will be reserved
for handicap parking; entry
will be through the State

rade you will be able to

ffrom the parks to prevent
congestion and accidents.

New Prospect Baptist Church
News

Wednesday night Brother Bil-
ly spoke from 1 Peter 5:7 Cast-
ing all your cares upon Him;
for he careth for you. We
were reminded that Jesus re-
ally does care for each of us
and our every need. Living
for Jesus is a daily, continu-
ous need if we are going to
be strengthened in His will.
We were reminded that Jesus
left the splendors of Heaven
to come to us to take care of
our needs. God sees our sins
but He made a way for us to
be forgiven. Don't leave Je-
sus out of Christmas. Don't
leave Jesus out of your life!
Sunday morning in Sunday.
school we started a new book
with a study in Micah. 700
years before the birth of Je-
sus, the prophet Micah
promised a Messiah would
come. Although Micah was
talking about life in Judah in
700B.C. it sounded as if he
were speaking about today as
he condemned violence, cor-
ruption, covetousness, gross
materialism and spiritual
bankruptcy Micah called on
God's people to serve Him
in justice, mercy and humil-
ity

Brother Billy delivered an
inspired message from
Lamentations 3:22-23 re-
minding us that the Lord's
tender mercies are renewed
fresh each day. God loves us
and will give us a new start
each day Do you start each
morning with the Lord?
Even when we go through a
storm, Jesus is already
there. Praise God!
Sunday night we had our
Christmas program with
Brother Pat and Sister Wan-
da Berry directing "The
Christmas Star." The play
was a cute, mock Broadway
review in search of the true
Christmas star. It was a fun
show with children and
adults participating as they
declared that Jesus is the
real star of Christmas.
Great job, cast! Hotdogs and


chili was enjoyed after the
outdoor production. Our
compliments to our chefs,
Brother Bookie Evans and
Brother Kimbo VanAernam.
The hotdogs were good too,
Sister Wanda!
Wednesday night is business
meeting and we will have our
Christmas dinner Sunday af-
ter church. Don't forget Trey
Sanchez and LaTasha Hen-
derson's wedding Saturday at
6:00 p.m. The junior and se-
nior adult Sunday school
classes are planning a Christ-
mas party together for Satur-
day, December 19. Mark your
calendar now and join us in
Sunday school for more de-
tails on this event.
If you are not involved in a
church, come and visit with
us at New Prospect Baptist
Church. We are ordinary
people who serve an EXTRA-
ORDINARY GOD! We sing,
we pray, we study God's Word
and we Glorify GOD together.
We welcome you to join us!
