Blackeye Boat Ramp


back on agenda


Thursday morning's regular
meeting of the County Com-
mission got a little tense
when, once again, the pro-
posed boat ramp at Blackeye
in Suwannee was back on
the agenda. Phil Bishop, of
Bailey, Bishop and Lane, in-
formed the Commission that
applications have been sub-
' mitted for permits for
planned boat ramp improve-
ments to Jena and Horse-
shoe. He said that the boat
ramp in Suwannee was
"still on hold," apparently
' because of disputes with
Blackeye property owner
Theresa Schefstad. Ms. Shef-
stad has been very vocal in
objecting to using the coun-
ty right of way in front of
her property as a parking
area for the proposed boat
ramp.

Commissioner Mark Hatch
stated, "I'm not losing that
boat ramp, we'll find some-
wherb to park 'em. I will not
lose that. Suwannee needs.
that boat ramp." Bishop
replied that the he was pre- ,
pared to submit the boat
ramp for permitting, and re-
quested "some concrete di-
rection from the Board."
Courity Manager Mike Cas-
sidy said that it was prema-
ture to move without more
information from the State.


ramp have to be open to peo-
ple other than the residents
of Suwannee?" David O's-
teen replied, also from the
audience, saying "That's my
tax money and if I want to
use the boat ramp, I'm
gonna use it."

Ms. Shefstad asked, "How
can we get the permit when
the application is in viola-
tion of land use regula-
tions." Bishop replied that
"The application is not in vi-
olation," and that "We can.
scale back to just the boat
ramp (without parking) or
continue with it the way it
is." County Attorney Jen-
nifer Ellision commented
that she has "not analyzed if
it violates the LDR:"

crepancy at all, we need to
run that rabbit down a hole
and deal with it." Mike Cas-
sidy agreed, saying that "We
shouldn't and can't request a
permit for something that
violates the LDR."

Bishop said that "We can
deal with parking issues
while we're waiting on.
FWC" to process the applica-
tion. The disagreement went
on for some time, andCom-
missioner Hatch said;
"We've beat this horse to
death: I'm tired of hearing
about it." The Commission
then voted to go ahead with
the boat ramp permit only
and to worry about the park-
ing situation at a later date.

Cub Scout Pack 24 joined the
worldwide celebration of
the 100th anniversary of
American Boy Scouting
Monday evening by holding
their annual Pinewood Der-
by. The event was hosted by
Cross City Methodist
Church, and the fellowship
hall was packed with little
boys and their families who
came to compete or to cheer
on their favorite home-made
wooden car.

The first Pinewood Derby
was held in 1952 at the Scout
House at Manhattan Beach.
The sport was quickly em-
braced by Scouting and the
competition is heated to this
day. Cars are made from kits
and must weigh under 5
ounces.


Dixie County Cubs
received ribbons
and trophies for
participating in
this year's event.

Arrests made in


multiple burglaries


A reported burglary at
Crown's Waterfront Market
in Suwannee and the
Suwannee Caf6 leads to
multiple arrests
during the week.

While officers.
were investigat-
ing the burglary
at Crown's Wa- :
terfront Market 'N
on the morning
of January 30,
2010, they were
approached by a Cha
witness and told of
an additional burglary at
the Suwannee Cafe. During
the week, the course of the
investigation led investiga-
tors to believe the two were
separate incidences.

On the after-
noon of January
30, 2010, investi-
gators arrested
20 year old
James C.
Chavous, of Old
Town and a 16
male juvenile in a
connection with F
the burglary and
theft involving the Suwan-
nee Caf6. Both.individuals
were charged with 1 count
of Burglary and 1 count of
Grand Theft involving this
incident. Chavous is still
currently being housed in
the Dixie County Jail and
the juvenile was booked into
the jail and released to his
parents.


On the afternoon of Febru-
ary 3, 2010, investigators
with the Sheriff's Office ex-
ecuted a search
warrant at a
home in the Old
Town area of
Dixie County in
regards to the
burglary at
Crown's Water-
front Market.
During this
search investiga-
OUS tors found evi-
dence that not only
tied two suspects to the bur-
glaries at Crown's but addi-
tional crimes in Gilchrist
County Randolph Feola, 23
years of age and a 17 year
old juvenile were arrested
in connection
with the bur-
glary at,
Crown's and
also charged
with a burglary
and theft that
occurred there
back in Sep-
tember of 2009.
oa Both individu-
als were
charged with 2 counts of
Burglary, 2 counts of Grand
Theft and 2 counts of
Felony Criminal Mischief
involving the two separate
incidences at Crown's Wa-
terfront Market. Randolph
and the juvenile remain in
custody with additional
charges expected.

Through this journey I have
learned to thank God for all
things, to love uncondition-
ally, to forgive, and to be a
friend. I have also learned
that I am not alone. Dixie
County is a great place to,
live, work, and play! It is
also the third highest coun-
ty in the State of Florida for
diagnosed cancer and the


second highest county for
cancer mortality.

FWC charges Dixie man with

"insulated shooting house"


Florida Fish and Wildlife In-
vestigator Larry Ayers, Offi-
cer Todd Nichols and Offi-
cer Brent Bowlin responded
to information regarding a
deer killed illegally behind a
residence in Dixie County.

The officers arrived to dis-
cover a man processing deer
meat. The officers discov-
ered the man had feeders set
up under a yard light in his
back yard along with a insu-
lated shooting house where
he would sit and shoot the
deer at night. The suspect
was charged with taking
deer at night with a gun
and light.


Forty-five packs of
processed deer meat, a doe
deer carcass and a Brown-
ing 12 gauge shotgun were
seized as evidence.

FWC also responded to a
complaint of a suspect in
possession of two alligators
in Gilchrist County. Upon
contacting the suspect Ofi-
cer Brent Bowlin received
consent to a search of
the back yard where the offi-
cers located two alligators
in a small pool. The suspect
was cited for unlawful pos-
session of alligator.

The alligators were released
back into the wild.

Haiti is now taking American prisoners

-One might have supposed the Haitian government would be
grateful for the generous help coming their way in the wake
of the recent devastating earthquake, most of it from the
United States. Our government, and no less any number of
independent charitable efforts, have done as much as hu-
manly possible to alleviate the suffering.

One of the independent charities going out of their way to
help the Haitians is a group called the New Life Children's
Refuge, a Christian missionary organization, ten members
of which were recently arrested for attempting to take a .
busload of Haitian-children across the border to the neigh-
boring Dominican Repub c, which is provisions for car-,.
ing for children possibly orphaned by the quake. Haitian
authorities have charged the Americans with kidnapping.
Tradition has it that Nero fiddled while Rome burned, then
blamed Christians hiding in the catacombs for starting the
fire. It would seem that history is repeating itself. Unless
they're as stupid as they are corrupt, Haiti's political lead-
-ers know very well that a group of American missionaries
are not going to be kidnapping children. While doing next
to nothing to deal with the situation that has turned
Haiti's capital city of Port-au-Prince into a disaster area,
they are now imprisoning their benefactors for allegedly
overlooking a legal technicality in dealing with an urgent
problem.

These bozos need to find gainful employment. A major
earthquake is a serious problem wherever it happens, how-
ever we have them every now and then in places like Cali-
fornia, and while there are injuries and sometimes fatali-
ties when a big one hits, we don't find structures through-
out the city collapsing like houses of cards on their occu-
pants and killing tens of thousands.

The difference lies in the way buildings are constructed.
California could probably have reduced their problem even
further by not building cities on a major fault line, however
given that disadvantage the Golden State still does not expe-
rience devastation comparable to Haiti's. Stack enough con-
crete blocks with just a dab of mortar to hold them together
and they could collapse if a big truck drove by--and an
earthquake will definitely turn them into a pile of rubble;"
but that hazard has apparently escaped the attention of
Haiti's building code enforcement personnel.

Haiti is a dictatorship. Pat Robertson seems to think the
problems there arise out of a pact with Satan that enabled
their ancestors to overthrow the occupying French IWe
know that the Devil does not deal honorably ,ut'neither do
the "leaders of the people" who foment violent revolutions
in third world countries, and they've beep jn-charge in
Haiti ever since the revolution. Blame whomever you
choose, but the fact remains that Haiti is a mess and was
long before the earthquake. In retrospect, they might have
been doing better under a benevolent occupation by the
post-World War II French socialists, but by that time the
French were no longer interested.

The Obama administration seems almost indifferent to the
plight of the imprisoned American missionaries. Under the
circumstances, it might not be a bad idea to send Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton down there and enlighten Prime
Minister Jean Max Bellerive, or whoever is in charge, to the
fact that we could immediately withdraw all US support,
both governmental and volunteer, if Haiti's government in-
sists on turning this disaster into war games in An effort to
become one more two bit dictatorship that can boast of be-
ing able to push the United States around.

But rest easy, my liberal friends, that ain't gonna happen.




The family of Bertha Lee Ellison would like to thank
all friends and family for the cards, food, flowers and
prayers during the illness and loss of our mother.
Your acts of kindness meant so much to each of us.
We appreciate all your love and support.
May God bless you.

S- ,I know it's a shock, but I am not an athlete.
E'Even before I began that inevitable "matronly"
phase in life when I started to find my mother looking back
at me in the mirror instead of the perpetual teenager who
lives in my mind, I stank at sports. In high school, I lived to
hate PE. I hated all of it; I hated dressing out, I hated run-
ning, and I hated baseball. (Oh, how I hated baseball.) I hat-
ed the stupid, mind-numbing, 70's AM radio songs that only
the girls were forced to do aerobics to while the boys did
something "fun" like lift weights. To this day, the opening to
the song "Your love, is lifting me higher.,.." makes me invol-
untarily respond "walk and clap in a circle." Gee, thanks,
Mrs. Baumer and Mrs. Carmichael. I know you meant well,
but I'm scarred for life. Surely I'm not the
only one traumatized by bad aerobics music. "Playing you
S"Playing you


There were only two bright spots in all the like being
years the public school system forced me to when you're
play sports at paddle-point: basketball and
soccer. Being a clumsy nearsighted girl, bas- your mom. Beil
ketball was fun, but I neverreally was coordi- having all y
nated or tall enough to be much good at it', away for the t
Soccer, though...I, lived for soccer time. Not
only did I,like it, I was a fair defender. 'Sadly, is like the n
we never had any sort of team, just the six
heavenly weeks we got to play the most popu- ---
lar sport in the world. It was enough to get me
to sin the sin of well-intentioned parents
everywhere: to live vicariously through my kids by making
them play a sport just because I love the game.

There's a blank on the DYS sign-up form that asks if you'll
help. Every year I've marked 'yes," and every year my kids
have played I've ended up coaching a team. I've been
blessediwith some great teams,,and some amazing kids.

My first year, I think, I coached the smallest of players..the 4
and 5 year olds. After I survived that, I sort of moved up in
ages as my kids did. Last year I had a fantastic team of kids
who ranged from 7-9. I have another team that age, this
year...go Sharks! Older kids are easy to coach, because it
takes no skill on my part. The kids provide the talent, thank
goodness, and they are better players than I ever was. It's
more of a management job than a sports position. It's a
real trip when they play well and when they win, even'
though as the coach, I had nothing to do with it. (And I've
been lucky enough to have some awesome co-coaches, Jere-
my Brown and James Henderson, who I just can't say
enough good stuff about. They rock.) .

On the other hand....and you knew there was another hand,
didn't you? I'm also coaching the little kids again, because
my youngest, Boo Bunny, started playing this year. (No, her
name is not really Boo Bunny, but'that's what she likes to be
called, and she sort of has a mind of her ownr'-see photo.)'

-doesn't care that I love soccer and want
her to play well. She wanders aimlessly
about the field, sometimes running with the pack but not re-
ally trying for the ball, sometimes wandering off the field to
play or to get a drink. Sometimes she just stands there, do-
ing nothing, happy to be wherever she is. Sometimes she
gets --quite rightly-- angry with my adult, goal-oriented insis-
tence that she stop looking at the fascinating cloud and
chase after the ball and she stomps off the field in a huff.


Preschoolers are absolutely crazy-making,with their own
. agendas, and pleasing me by chasing a ball apparently isn't
one of them. It's a three-days-a-week lesson in dirt-licking
humiliation and my own incompetence. By the end of. a
game, I feel about three inches tall. The parents in the
stands must think I'm an idiot, out here, begging little kids
to "Run! No, the other way!" Other coaches seem to be so,
cool, so in control. I look like a maniac. I stink at this. If I
was any good, the kids would be more focused. They'd be
more aggressive. They'might even score. An ego-building ex-
perience, it ain't. Why do I do this to myself?.

And then, little Julia Lynn and Harley wrap themselves
around my legs and say, "Hey, Coach," and start telling me
in little excited voices a very earnest story about something
I can't quite follow. Oh yeah, now I remember why I do this.
It's not about winning or even scoring. Soccer is aboutfun.

Dear Editor:

I would like to.commend the

their recent selection of the
C.O.E's as their "Citizens Of

quite deserving. I have had
the pleasure of. working'
with these men and women

Dear Editor:
New data reveals that con-
sumers save an estimated $26
billion a year or $360 per fami-
ly for vehicle service and re-
pair at neighborhood indepen-
dent repair shops compared to
more costly new car dealer-,
ships. This demonstrates why
Congress needs to swiftly pass
the Motor Vehicle Owners'
Right to Repair Act (HR 2057).
This legislation will prevent
car manufacturers from deny-.
. ing access to repair informa-
tion, computer codes, tools and
software needed by car owners
and their neighborhood repair
shops to repair late model ve-
hicles.'
Historically, car owners have
had the ability to repair their
vehicles themselves or take
them to the service facility of
their choice. The car compa-
nies now seek to force con-
sumers to return to the dealer-
ship for service and repair and


nity, as the Sheriff's Depart-
ment will attest to, I'm sure.
The men, and women, of the
C.O.P.'s volunteer their time
for any occasion to help in ,
the community I would like
to say "Congratulations"
and a big, well deserved
Thank You to the C.O.P.'s.

are lobbying heavily against
the Right to Repair Act. It is
appalling that some manufac-
turers can take federal bailout
money and then turn around
and oppose a bill that would
protect every American mo-
torist from a vehicle repair
monopoly.
The Motor Vehicle Owners'
Right to Repair Act (HR 2057)
currently has the support of
53 members of Congress.
Every consumer who owns or
operates a vehicle in the U.S.
stands to suffer economically
if this bill is not passed.

support the Right to Repair
Act by visiting www.righttore-

SBy Bonnie WIlson

I'm afraid I have not been
out recently on a trail ride
so I have pulled from my
memory bank a great trail
ride that Dave and I had be-
fore we took our yearly
Bluegrass Music Cruise to
Mexico. I hope you enjoy
What you see at
Cedar Key Scrub will simply
amaze you. It was a beauti-
ful sunny day. After a week
of rain and high winds, the
rain finally stopped for a
bit. Certainly long enough
for Dave and I to go on a
great trail ride with a few of
our friends.
With the weather
just about as perfect as it
could get Buddy and I along
with Dave and Zip headed
off to Cedar Key Scrub. The
first time I had the pleasure
of riding at Cedar Key
Scrub it seemed like a nice
place to ride, little did I
know I had only scratched
the surface of the trails
ahead. As we rode further

noticed things that I didn't
see, there were no buses, no
trains, no cars, nor scooters
or bikes, just a gentle breeze,
and the sounds of the pal-

rubbing together. It was,
much like natures orchestra

keeping perfect time.

definitely wishing I had
packed a camera!
I had been told
about this area but I was not
prepared for what was to
come in to view. All the way "
* down this trail it was be-
coming more and more
beautiful with each and
every step we took. Horses,
gently snorting as they
crunched the ground be-
neath our feet. Looking
overhead was a canopy of
various shades of green
with the sun filtering
through, spot lighting and
glittering this way and that.
Suddenly, there it was; the
end of the trail and what
could be the beginning of
an entirely new adventure.
As far as the eye could see it
looked like saw grass with a
group of trees holding each
other while swaying in the
wind. It certainly appeared,
to be doing, a sacred dance,
or was this just my mind
lost in a moment of pure
fantasy and playing tricks
on me. It was an awe inspir-
ing moment. One I'm not
likely to forget as other
trees did hold a certain poet-
ic loveliness by just stand-
ing alone within the marsh
and the grass.
From where we
stood the scene was stun-
ning. Framed with oaks,
moss and palmettos, it took
me a full moment to take it-
all in and recover from that
heavenly sight that nature
had produced. It was a
breathtaking trail ride. I
would highly recommend to
each of you the #8 trail and
while you are there stop and
appreciate all the things you
see within Florida's Cedar
Key Scrub.

Where to hunt spring

turkeys without a

quota permit

If you weren't lucky enough
to get drawn for a spring
turkey quota permit, or if
you are looking for even
morespring turkey hunting
opportunity, don't fret; there
are numerous wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs) that
don't require them.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) offers 42 pub-
lic hunting areas statewide
where hunters need only to
"walk on" to hunt spring
turkeys.

These hunts are made possi-
ble through the FWC's part-
nerships with the state's Di-
vision of Forestry, Florida's
water management districts,
the U.S. Forest Service, Flori-
da Department of Envirorn-
mental Protection, the Na- ,
tional Park Service, Depart-
ment of Defense and the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service, who
contribute their lands to the
state's public-hunting sys-
tem.

Hunters need only a hunting
license ($17 for residents,
$46.50 for nonresident 10-day
license), management area
permit ($26.50) and turkey .
permit ($5 for residents, $100
for nonresidents) to spring
turkey hunt on the following
areas. These licenses and
permits can be purchased in
Florida at county tax collec-
tors' offices and at most re-
tail outlets that sell hunting
and fishing supplies. They
also can be bought with a
credit card by calling 888-486-

Ducks may not be waddling
around in your backyard, but
you can usually find many
swimming and quacking in local
ponds.
What makes a duck so like-
alle- Maybge i b. heirmia,'lel or
quack. MW1atd'er makes them
so likable, people young and old
enjoy watching them .
-Ducks are l y u
called waterfowl. That'sbecause
they live on lakes, marshes,-riv-
ers, streams, and other watery.
areas. They are closely related
to geese and swans. There are
many kinds.of ducks in Florida.
A unique species found in the
Florida peninsula is the mottled
duck, often called the Florida
duck. It spends its entire life
in Florida. Male and. feinale
mottled ducks are very,,similar
in color. They are brown .all
over, but their head Is a lighter
color than their body.'They also
have an orange bill and feet.
Ducks eat by dabbling or
diving. Mottled ducks and
other dabbling ducks use their
bills to ski" the surface of the
water or just below it looking
for food. When you see a duck
with its tail feathers sticking
out of the water, it is trying to.'
reach something tasty in deeper
water, like insects or aquatic
-plants.
Other ducks dive for their
food. Many of these divers are.

sea ducks and live at the ocean.
Diving ducks like to eat plants,
small fish, insects, snails, clams
and small crayfish.
Webbed feet help ducks swim,
but on land their wide feet and
position of their legs make them
waddle from-side td side.
Did you know ducks have
waterproof feathers? A gland pro-
duces oil, which they spread by
preening themselves with their
bill. When you see them turning
their neck around to "scratch,"
they may actually be spreading
the oils.
Newborn ducks ducklings -
look like yellow and black balls of
fuzz. They learn to fly when they
are only 8 weeks old! Dabblers
can shoot straight up off the water
into the sky, but divers must run
on top of the 'water's surface to
gain enough speed to take flight -
just like an airplane.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation" Commission dis-
courages people from feeding
ducks because feeding can lead
to overcrowding, disease and nui-
sance problems in urban areas.
Activity: Ask your mom or
dad to take you to a local pond and
identify the types of ducks you see.

SUPERINTENDENT MARK RAINS
INTRODUCES BOOKS ON BUSES
PROGRAM

On February 1st, the Trans-
portation Department of
Dixie District Schools began'
an exciting new adventure.
Superintendent Mark Rains
has initiated the Books on
Buses Program. His goal is
to encourage students to
read during their bus ride to
and from.school. He re-
ceived donated books for
each bus to have aboard for
student use.

The Books on Buses Pro-
gram is intended to make
reading fun for our children.
During the first week of im-
plementation, students have


enjoyed this new program.
Drivers have complimented
students about their behav-
ior this week, and how stu-
dents are very interested in
reading and looking at pic-
tures. They have also no-
ticed older children reading
to and helping beginning
readers.

Superintendent Rains be-
lieves that drivers and stu-
dents will take advantage of,
enjoy, and benefit from this
opportunity. ,-Reserch indi-
cates that th~bore read ing
a student does, including
reading fQr.pleasure, in-
creases that-person's reading
ability This ability will in-
crease the potential for that
student to be a productive
member of society.

Council. Thirty-seven excep-
tional distance study gradu-
ates were selected by the in-
stitutions they attended. Se-
lection criteria included the
graduates' academic records
and the level and quality' of
their contributions to soci-
ety and to their chosen pro-
fessions.

The Seniors at DCHS are
very important to Ander-
son. Since most of his stu-
dents are seniors, it is a top
priority to him to make sure
that they graduate. Many of
the things that he incorpo-
rates in his Economics and
Government classes deal
with life situations that the
seniors will be experiencing
during their lifetime. An-
derson thoroughly enjoys
.being a member of the Dix-
ie District School System.
He states, "I am very proud
of our school, our faculty.
and administration and con-
sider it an honor to be a
teacher here."

report back on the beauty
and many unusual varieties
of camellias showcased
there. On January the 22nd,
the club commemorated Ar-

From COMMISSION, pg 1

Talmadge Strickland, inter-
im Manager of the Suwan-
nee Water and Sewer Board
appeared and informed the
Board that "We were not
successful in hiring a dual-
operator." He said that two
applicants had been contact-
ed, but had turned down the
job.. He also said that a new
laptop was purchased for the
Lead'Operator and that 10
grinder pumps had been
purchased. He informed the
Commission that voluntary
drug screening had been
conducted on employees and
that everyone passed.
,Strickland said that Ac- "
counts Receivables Policies
have been enacted, with
lockouts, for customers who
are late on paying bills.

County. Manager Mike Cas-
sidy asked about the "...pos-
sibility of an independent
audit--what's the status on
that?" Strickland replied
that the audit has been "laid
to the wayside due to ex-
pense."

Charlie Forniciari made a
presentation regarding the
possibility of installing arti-.
ficical reefs of Dixie's coast-
line and the Board agreed to
help in any way possible.

Jack Brown, Taylor County
Administrator appeared to
request that Dixie'approve a
motion, similar to the one*
approved in Taylor County,
to rename the 10th street
bridge after Captain Chad
Reed. The Board unani-
mously approved. Signs will
be installed and a ceremony
is planned.

Veterans Affairs Officer Jer-
ry Prater appeared to let the
Board know that Agent Or-
ange coverage is. now avail-
able for Navy personnel who
served on ships in Vietnam
that sailed in "brown water."
A new list of eligible ships is
available from his office.


Rita Harris of Harris Ad-
ministrative Services asked
for $750 in funds to complete
an emergency repair on a
drainfield and was approved.

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy announced that Build-
ing and Zoning Official Jack
Spivey would be retiring on
Friday and that a reception
is planned in his honor.
Some discussion was held
over "restructuring" the De-
partment" after that.

Cassidy informed. the Board
- that Mrs, Duncan, who has
been trying to sell her prop-
erty adjacent to Gornto
Springs for years, has decid-
ed to get a new appraisal in
order to facilitate the sale,
but that the Suwannee River
Water Management District,
is "not locked into Gornto .
only"

Cassidy said that there is a
vacancy for a Rock mine in-
spection position and that
the spot would be advertised
withia starting salary of $15
an hour. The Commission
was reminded of the Ribbon
Cutting Ceremony at Ander-
son Park on March 4th at
3:00 pm.

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison asked for and re-
ceived a motion to pay the
health insurance for Chad
Reed's family until Mrs.'
Reed remarries, as is re-
quired in Florida Law for all
families of officers killed in
the line of duty.

Fire inspections during con-
struction on commercial and
multi-family buildings as
then discussed and a mora-
torium was placed for two
.weeks on processing applica-
tions in order to allow prop-
er procedures to be worked
out and to allow for the "re-
structuring" of the Building
and Zoning Department.
The, meeting was then ad-
journed.

SupBw you haven't
heard the news, it was on
this weekend. Around here
the Superbowl is all about
the food. And surprisingly, it
isn't coming from me! The
Mister has been mulling
over the menu for two
weeks. He had several ideas.
He even wanted to have ba-
con ground and mixed into
hamburger meat to cook on
the grill. He wouldn't listen
when I told him it would be
a ball of grease but thank-
fully the butcher at the store
told him the same thing and
he listened to her. He finally
called me with his finalized
menu. Bacon Cheesy Ham-
burgers with all the fixins',
french fries, and jalapeno
poppers. Not a very elabo-
rate menu but he put a lot of
thought into it. The french
fries and poppers were
frozen but the hamburger
recipe is fantastic and worth
sharing.

as little as possible. Shape
into patties. Press the pat-
ties until they stay together
but don't make them into a
tight patty unless you want
t hockey pucks instead of
tasty, juicy hamburgers. I
use a hamburger press. It
didn't cost very much and
all the hamburgers come out
the same size so they. are all
done at the same time. You
can do the bacon two differ-
ent ways. You can wrap the
bacon around the outside of
the hamburger and put a
toothpick in the ends to
keep it from falling off. Just
use wooden toothpicks and
snap the exposed end off so
the wood won't burn during
grilling. Or do what I do,
just lay the bacon on top and
when the burgers are flipped
just remove the bacon, flip
the burger and replace the
bacon. If the'bacon doesn't
seem to be crisping just lay
* it on the grill and let it cook
over the heat until it is nice
and brown. This makes
about four hamburgers. (I
have to double so we can
have leftovers!)

The finalized menu didn't
include any desserts and
since I am a big sweet eater,
I decided to make some
brownies using a technique
I heard on TV This recipe is
going to sound strange and
it certainly isn't a diet, sug-
ar-free, no fat dessert but it
does have much fewer calo-
ries and fat than a conven-
tional brownie.

Every year, 4.5 million lives
are saved in the US and
Canada thanks to blood
transfusions. The group of
patients whose lives are
saved stretch across all de-
mographics, races and eth-
nicities. Just three tea-
spoons of blood can save a
baby's life, so imagine the
impact that your pint of do-
nated blood can have. Life-
South' and the communities .
of Old Town ana Suwannee
invite you to be a part of
saving lives when they team
up to host blood drives on
Saturday February 20. Look
. for the bloodmobile at Hitch-
cock's Foodway in Old Town
between the hours of 9:30
a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The
bloodmobile then moves to
the community of Suwan-
nee at the Suwannee Baptist
Church between the hours
of 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

"Seventeen percent of non-
donors say 'they never
thought about it,' as the
main reason for not giving,"
said Joyce Higgins, donor
recruiter for LifeSouth. "We
hope everyone will think
about saving lives and do-
nate blood at one of the com-
munity drives."

All who donate will a recog-
nition item and a compli-
mentary cholesterol screen-
ing. Donors must be at least
16 years old, weigh 110

Obituaries and Fait


Lafayette Baptist
Association

The Lafayette Baptist Associ-
ation sponsored its quarterly
gathering of the SAINTS
ALIVE at Mt. Horeb Baptist
Church on February 4th.

WOW, what a great time we
had of seniors gathering to
praise and worship the Lord
.and share in Christian Fel-
lowship. Over 100 people
from 11 churches in our asso-
ciation attended.

We were greeted with a wel-
come and prayer by Pastor
James West and then led in
songs of praise by Bro.
Harold and musicians and a
"Speechless Sermon" of
laughter led by Joyce
Snoody Lloyd and Louise
read a senior version of "Je-
sus Loves Me" and we all
joined in the chorus to relive
the Good News, that yes, Je-
sus does love Us.

Nancy Padgett, LBA Senior
Director, gave a brief talk
about what the association
means to us as a group of
Christian Seniors and of
how beneficial it is to join
with other seniors and share
in this Christian Fellowship.
The church with the highest
number of people attending-

TO THE ROCK.


Pentecostal Holiness
Church News.

I believe there was a special'
awakening Sunday morning
as pastor Richardson
bought the message titled:
A true look at the Church -
How do we blend a church of
young and old ?
Every generation has some-
thing unique and special to
offer the kingdom of God.
There are things that th6
older saints can teach the
young people and there are
things that the younger peo-
ple can bring to the older
ones as did our youth Sun-
day night presenting to us
and many visitors who we
thank God for, a present day
rendition of the Prodigal
Son taken from Luke chap-
ter 15. A church must have
younger people with enthu-
siasm, energy, tenacity,
strength and zeal. A church
must have older people to re-
mind us how to live, give us.,
an example of how to make
it through difficult days, and
to teach younger people how
to live.
Paul instructed in Titus 2:
1. But speak thou the things'
which become sound doc-


trine: (the church needs -
sound doctrine- we must be *..
people of the book (bible) .
V2. That the aged men be 2
sober, grave, temperate,
sound in faith, in clarity, in
patience. V3. The aged
women likewise, that they be.
in behavior as becometh ho-'.
liness, not false accusers, not
given to much wine, teach-
ers of good things. V4. That
they may teach the young
women to be sober, love their
husbands, to love their chil-
dren. We need both young
and old to coexist in the
body of Christ. The.enemy
has tried for twenty years to
keep the the older people
away from the
young ones and vise versa.
He knows that if the two can-
ever get together God can do-
exploits beyond belief. God
is interested in the young
and he is interested in the
old.
Some Churches have
stopped reaching out to the
younger crowd because they
think different and they
make to much noise. Our fu- ,
ture as a church depends on '
investing in the children and
youth of today so they will
be mature men and women
of the future.
