Cross City Rehabilitation
hosted a Senior Prom to cel-
ebrate Valentine's Day. Ac-
tivity Director Jennie Sue
Cunningham said, "Many of
our residents who are in
their 80's or 90's, were al-
ready working by the time
they were in the 8th and 9th
grade and never experienced
a true Senior Prom or for-
mal dance." So, Mrs. Cun-
ningham,Billie Jo Tompkins
and Joe Weatherwax put a


call out to the community
for formal gowns and jack-
ets. The Mickey D and

sic for the event. Mrs. Cun-
nifigham said, "Thank you
the everyone in the commu-
nity such as Mrs. Peggy

hope that God will shower
his blessing upon you.
Thanks again for your Love
and help in every thing that
we do to make the lives'of
others better and memer-,
able." See more photos,

Even the best jobs can pile ___

The staff at Cross City Re-

workplace anxiety this
week by participating in a

Travellers on CR 351 head-

was the intent. For a very
small donation, staff
could take a hammer to

15 year old girl


found dead


On Saturday, February 13,
2010, the Dixie County Sher-
iff's Office and Dixie Coun-
ty EMS responded to a resi-
dence in Old Town on NE
642 Street. At the scene they
discovered a deceased fif-
teen year-old white female.
Residents of the home stat-
ed that they left earlier in
the day and returned in the
afternoon.

Upon returning, they found
the victim lying on the floor
with a pillow and blanket
and thought the victim was
sleeping. Sometime later,
they discovered what they
thought to be irregularities
and attempted to get a re-
sponse from the victim.
Upon discovering the victim
was not breathing, they im-
wa no bratm, thyi-


mediately began, CPR and
called 911.

The preliminary investiga-
tion indicates .that one of
the occupants of the home
was recently released from
the hospital and had differ-
ent medications in the home
that are now missing. An'
autopsy is planned and will
be conducted by the Medical
Examiner's Office'in
Gainesville to determine the
exact cause of death.

At this time the Sheriff's Of-
fice is investigating this as
an overdose and no foul play
was indicated at the scene.
The investigation is contin-
uing into the victim's men-
tal status and prior history
to determine what may have
led to her death.

Boating restrictions enacted

due to Suwannee flooding


Floodwaters in the Suwan-
nee River rose to 24.05.feet
at Branford Monday, so the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) activated restrictions
in Zone 3, from Little River
Spring to the County Road
340 Bridge at Rock Bluff.

This 23-mile segment will
be an idle-speed, no-wake
zone as long as the Suwan-
nee River is at 24 feet or
more, as indicated on the
Branford gauge.

FWC officers will be pa-
trolling this area of the riv-
er to ensure boaters comply
with the idle-speed, no-wake
rule, said Capt. Roy Brown,
area supervisor at the
FWC's Lake City office. The
FWC encourages boaters to
stay off the river system un-
til conditions improve.

"We don't believe the river
will maintain this level for
very long," Brown said.
"The river level has been
rising extremely slowly
over the past two weeks. We
will continue to monitor it
and get the word out once
the zone is deactivated."

This is the second zone acti-
vated this year. The FWC ac-
tivated Zone 5, a 32-mile seg-
ment from River Rise in
O'Leno'State Park west to
the confluence of the
Suwannee River, on Jan. 29,
when the Santa Fe River
reached 17 feet on the Three
Rivers gauge, where flood
stage is 19 feet. That zone
remains in effect.


An idle-speed, no-wake zone
means a vessel must pro-
ceed at a speed no greater
than what is required to
maintain steerageway and
headway At no time is any
vessel required to proceed
" so slowly that the.operator
is unable to control it or
anything it may be towing.

The other three zones are:

Zone 1, from the U.S. 90.
Bridge at Ellaville south to
*the State Road 51 Bridge at
Luraville. This 39-mile seg-
ment becomes an idle-speed,
no-wake zone when the
Suwannee River reaches 47
feet or more at the Ellaville
gauge, where flood stage is
54 feet.

Zone 2, from the S.R. 51
Bridge at Luraville to Little
River Spring. This 18-mile
segment becomes an idle-
speed, no-wake zone when
the Suwannee River reaches
26 feet or more above mean
sea level at the Branford
gauge, where flood stage is
29 feet.

Zone 4, from the C.R. 340
Bridge at Rock Bluff to one
mile below the Fowler Bluff
Boat Ramp. This 51-mile
segment will be an idle-
speed, no wake-zone when
the Suwannee River reaches
9 feet or more at the Wilcox
gauge, where flood stage is
11 feet.

How to lose the war on terror

It seems like every time I read an opinion piece from the
St. Petersburg Times I am r minded of why I left that town.
That paper's:many skilled writers are just out of touch
with how things work in the real world.

A recent Times column by Robyn Blumner which showed
up in the Gainesville Sun was entitled, "Giving due process
rights to terror suspects works." Amazing. But when you
think about it, a lot of things can be said to "work," depend-
ing on what your idea of a favorable outcome happens to
be. I'm sure Vladimir Lenin felt that way about bo omu-.
nism, but it seems doubtful that hip viewpoint w s shared :
by the millions of Russians who suffered under that form of
government for three-quarters of a century

The column was a defense of the Obama administration's
decision to try "underwear bomber" Umar Farouk Abdul-
mutallab and other Islamic terrorists in civilian courts,
claiming that this was actually a more effective method of
dealing with. terrorists than those favored by Republicans
(who actually do not favor hanging suspects by their
thumbs, as Ms. Blumner suggested).

Abdulmutallab has supposedly offered "valuable intelli-
gence" to the FBI despite having been advised of his right
to remain silent and have a lawyer on hand when being
questioned. We're told that this had something to do with
the fact that his family also cooperated, which they "appar-
ently" would not have done, had he been placed in military
custody

It's true that Abdulmutallab's father tried to alert US au-
thorities of the company his son was keeping, however that
happened before the flight in which his drawers failed to ex-
plode, so in that respect he could have just as well have
been at Guantanamo. Any additional info he disclosed, with
or without the advice of his family, got filtered through his
lawyerss.

Attorney General Eric Holder is feeling a lot of heat over
his role in moving terrorist trials to civilian courts. Howev-
er, in his defense, Blumner quotes him as telling Senate Re-
publicans (you know, those guys who want to string terror-
ists up by their thumbs) that the criminal justice system
has proven to be the best way to persuade an uncooperative
individual to "talk." Seems to me that's not what got Khalid
Sheikh Mohammed to spill the beans.

Remember "shoe bomber" Richard Reid (no relation to
"Dingy Harry," at least as far as I know)? Ms. Blumner re-
minds us that he was tried in civilian court and is now
serving a life sentence. Right. And his little caper occurred
about three months after 9/11. We've had quite a bit of time
between then and Barack Obama's inauguration to pass-leg-
islation and otherwise sort out more efficient means of
dealing with terrorists. Besides, Reid should have been exe-
cuted. There's no reason to keep feeding those bastards for
years after they've been caught.

Good liberal that she is, Blumner of course insists that the
kid glove treatment of terrorists is good PR, and will show
the world that we're really the good guys after all. Alas,
when will these people realize that Islamic terrorists want
us dead, or at least enslaved? We could buy captured terror-
ists ice cream from now till hell freezes and they'd still
want to kill us. To them, any accommodation is a sign of
weakness, and what bigger sign of weakness than allowing
them civilian trials with all the accommodations afforded
US citizens accused of crimes?

The cost of civilian trials for terrorists wasn't mentioned
in Ms. Blumner's column, but that in itself should be suffi-
cient reason to rule out any such absurdity--millions, per-
haps billions, as compared to less than 40 bucks a day at
Guantanamo. Too bad, but liberals just don't seem to know
a bargain when they see one.


Mr Prater:
I'm with John Wayne (and you) on this one. Put 'em in front
of a military tribunal, and give 'em "a fair trial, and a fine
hangin'. "By the thumbs is optional. --Ed

You have the right to life, liberty, and deep-fried Oreos


1 by Kathy McKinney


"Do you want to be a big fat-fatty? Come
oin me, it's sweeeeet." Glen Beck said this
one day on his show--and it must have been
how he said it, because it doesn't look so
funn y in print--but it hit us just right and
Georgia and I almost had to go change our pants, we
laughed so hard. It's become something of a running joke in
our house, applied to al-
most everything. We said -
it countless times on
Thursday when we went -* -- *
to the Florida State Fair V.V'" ,..LI
in Tampa.' t AtM

It was an easy thing to '.
think about being a big
-fat-fatty. Only at a state
fair could you eat fried
cheese on a stick, fried, .
candy bars on a.stick, .
fried Oreos, fried -
Twinkies, and something
called a Krispy Kreme DEEP
hamburger all in the FRIED
same place. It seemed like
each booth was trying to
'outdo the next one in
sheer deep-fried fatty
imagination. We saw one
guy hawking "'Deep fried
Pepsi." No, I have no. idea "No diet will remove all the fat from
what it was, and I didn't try brain, you might look good, but all you
any (You can ask Tank &
Debbie Lee about the
Krispy Kreme hamburger, though, they tried one. They said
it was a hamburger with a doughnut on it.) Yay for the inge-
'nuity of capitalism!

I did eat one of the kids' deep-fried Oreos. It was pretty
good, all hot and gooey inside. Not something I'd make at
home, but as they say, when in Rome...ya gotta eat the deep
fried Oreos. Or something like that. If you get a chance to.go
to the fair you should go and try all that neat stuff. Next
year, it'll probably be illegal. You'll stop to pick up a little
cheese on a stick, offering your five dollars, and Nancy
Pelosi will jump out of the fryer with a bunch of .State De-
partment goons who will confiscate your glob of deep-fried
gooey goodness in the name of National Security.

Think I'm exaggerating? Yeah, maybe a little bit, but not
much. Michelle Obama has started up her new raison d'etre
to justify her space in the White House. She's declared war
onfat kids. When I was little, I was taught that-you weren't
supposed to pick on the fat kids, or the goofy kids, or-the :
kids with glasses. I guess government officials can poifit ahnd
laugh because they think it's for our own good.

Apparently, Ms. Obama thinks we're fat because we live in
"food deserts in this nation, which makes it difficult for fam-
ilies trying to access good options." Food deserts? Really? In
a nation with countless grocery stores, fruit stands, and fast
food places piously serving up sliced' apples instead of fries
in "green" packaging, she says we're in the desert? Here's a
thought, Michelle, send all those kids trapped in public


Letter to the Editor:

I am Declan Moeller, a resident
of Dixie County since my birth
in 1987. I am a product of the
Dixie County school system. I
have operated my own lawn
mowing and yard maintenance
business in this county and the
surrounding counties since I
was sixteen years old.

In October of 2009, I appeared
before the Dixie County School
Board and requested that the
school board open bids for
mowirrg services. I pointed
out to the board that they had
not put up the school mowing
contracts for competitive bids
for over five years. After dis-
cussion, the board decided to
accept bids for mowing ser-
vices at the Dixie County
schools for the year 2010.

Based upon the board's deci-
sion, bids specifications were
provided to prospective bid-
ders. These specifications
gave a description of the work,
required verification of insur-
ance coverage and required
that each prospective bidder
own and maintain certain
items of equipment.

As part of the bid process, bid-
ders were provided with a bid
sheet that required that bidders
submit sealed bids no, later
than January 6, 2010 at 1:30
p.m. Bidders were permitted
to submit separate bids on each
of the five school mowing areas
which were as follows:

Dixie County High School and
Vocational School
Anderson Elementary School
Ruth Rains Middle School
Old Town Elementary School
Old Town Educational Complex

Among the documents required
to be reviewed and initialed by
the prospective bidders was a
"Vender Bid Checklist for
Lawn Maintenance Services".
Paragraph 9 of this checklist
reads as follows:
"I understand that bids will be
accepted until the posted dead-
line and late bids will not be ac-


cepted, A contract will be
awarded to the lowest bidder
for each location unless the
principal of that center writes
a justification of why that low-
est bid should be rejected. If
just cause is shown, the con-
tract will then be awarded to
the next lowest bidder for that
location. "

The bids were opened on Janu-
ary 6, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. Those
bids were as follows:


After the bids-were opened, I
realized that I had substantial-
ly underbid the mowing con-
tact for the Dixie County High
School. Despite that realiza-
tion, I elected not to withdraw.
my bid on the high school for
two reasons. First, I was
'taught to be a man of my word
and to expect others to do the
same. Second, because I was
the successful bidder on Old
Town Elementary School and
Anderson Elementary School,
I figured that any potential loss
I might have on the high school
would be offset by the other
two contracts.

On January 6, 2010, Charlotte
Lord, Director of Safety, Facili-
ties and Special Projects, wrote
letters to the principals of each
school and to the Director of
Finance at the Old Town Edu-
cational Complex. Each letter
advised the recipient that the
acceptance of the lowest bidder
for their facility would be rec-
ommended unless the recipient
gave written reasons why the
bid of the lowest bidder should
not be accepted. Buddy
Schofield, principal of Dixie


.schools learning to sing hymns to your husband outside to
run or play dodgeball once in a while! (Oh, I forgot. We can't
play dodgeball anymore, it's not politically correct. And they
wonder why kids are fat.)

Ms. Obama apparently hasn't seen the cornucopia of dining
options available at the State Fair. You didn't have to limit
your choices to the "fried" menu. There was fresh roasted
'corn on the cob, fresh fruit everywhere, grilled chicken
kabobs,
smoothies,
fresh.
lemonade,
raw sugar
cane, even a
place where
A B you could
squeeze
your own
3 orange
-.juice...I
.. mean sure,
if you want-
ed to eat
badly, you
could. Most
people I saw
did splurge
on the fried
fun. But
that was
their choice.
Ti your body because the brain is entirely fat. Without a
coulddo is run for public office."-- George Bernard Shaw And therein
lies the real
truth to the
Obama's "War on fat." It's not a war against obesity, but a
war on you. See, in the eyes of the skinny ruling elite, you,
being the moronic knuckle-dragging peasant that you are,
are too stupid to decide to eat "well," or even to pack your
own kids' lunchbox. Since your elected rulers are oh-so-
much-smarter-and-better-looking than you, they've declared
war, not on fat, but on your right to make your own choices.

If you recall, I warned you all that this was coming back
during the campaign when Obama said, "We can't drive our
SUVs and eat as much as we wantand keep our homes, on 72
degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other coun-
tries are going to say OK." Elections have consequences, so
welcome to the White House Diet, in which the government
will tell you how much and what you're allowed to eat. Sure,
it'll start with government schools, because that's where
they have the most control, but it won't belong before you
open your snack cabinet at home one Saturday afternoon
and Rahm Emmanuel pops out like a demented Keebler Elf
to lecture you about limiting your calorie intake for the sake
of Big Brother Bariy afind the w~l6fi'e d the cet five.

Our Founders guaranteed that*the government wouldn't in-
tei'fere with our God-given freedoms of life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness., They didn't add, "unless it's bad for
you," or even "unless it raises your insurance premiums."
You eat that fried cheese on a stick if you want to, and tell
Washington and Michelle Obama what they can do with the
stick.


County High School, Denee
Hurst, principal of Anderson'
Elementary School, and Karen
Tillis, principal of Old Town
Elementary School personally
signed off on their copy of the
letter indicating that the rec-
ommended acceptance of my
bids to provide mowing ser-
vices to their school.

Based upon the signed letters
from the school principals, on
January 21, 2010, Ms. Lord


wrote a letter to Mark Rains,
Superintendent of Schools, rec-
ommending that the bids of all
of the lowest bidders be accept-
ed.

Because there was no objection
* by the principals and various
department heads, the award of
the mowing contracts was
placed on the "Consent Agen-
'da" for the school board meet-
ing on February 9, 2010. Mat-
ters onthe "Consent Agenda"
are matters about which there
is no genuine controversy and
they are usually passed with-
out debate.

During the school board meet-
ing of February 9, 2010, with-
out notice to any of the bid-
ders, the matter was moved
from the Consent Agenda to the
Regular Agenda. Board mem-
ber, Cheryl Pridgeon, first
made a motion that the bids of
all of the lowest bidders be ac-
cepted and that mowing con-
tracts be awarded to them.
This included the bids I sub-
mitted for the Dixie County
High School, Anderson Ele-
mentary School, and Old Town
Elementary School. The mo-


tion was initially seconded by
board member, David Keen.

Board member, Dwayne "Top"
Rollison, then made a motion
that the mowing contract for
Dixie County High School be
awarded to William Andrews
and the mowing contract for
Old Town Elementary School
be awarded to Jody Robson.
The motion was seconded by ,
board member, Glen Osteen.
Although board member David
Keen initially seconded the
motion of Ms. Pridgeoh, he
then voted in favor of award-
ing the high school and Old
Town Elementary School con-
tracts to William Andrews and
Jody Robson respectively, de-
spite the fact that these were
-not the lowest bids. Ms. Prid-
geon voted against the motion.
During the entire process,
board chairman, Tim Alexan-
der, raised no objection to the
board's award of the contracts
in violation of the bid specifi-
cations.

The end result of the actions of
the school board as set forth
above is that the tax payers of
this county are paying
$14,606.00 more than was neces-
sary It is difficult to under-
stand how the board can take
an action such as this and yet
claim that their current finan-
cial circumstances are such
that they are hard pressed to *
pay for the educational services
necessary to properly educate
our children.

The board's action also sends a
deeper message to the general
public of this county including
the present and past students of
the Dixie County School Sys-
tem. That message is that the
members of the school board
and the principal of the high

Trort/l Rers

By Bonnie WIlson

As we traveled down the
highway to our trailhead to-
day there was a bit of rain
falling, then suddenly lots of
rain. I was beginning to
think today may not have
been a good day to ride.
However as we pulled into
the trailhead it stopped
raining. Oh Boy, I thought
'this was a "here's your
sign" deal that I was desper-
ately looking for. We un-
loaded our boys, Buddy and,
Zip and after a few hellos we
headed out on our trail.

Our ride today was at
Pruitt, which is located in
Dunnellon. It's a great place
to ride. Phil Parent, my
husband Dave and I were
the three anigos for this
venture. Randy and Fay
Beasley were also there with
their beautiful Paso's and
ready to ride.
However, we
three amigos
were on Quarter
horses and this
time we actually
took the high
road, and left
the Beasley's to
the low road.

We had a won-
derfulride.
Pruitt is one of
my very favorite places to-
ride and the thing I really
like about Pruitt is that they
have.these extraordinary
hills that you can climb. It's
good for your horses. I rode
Buddy today and we had an
excellent ride. He was very
willing and trusting of me
and hle did an amazing job.
Through tight turns that
were more like a jungle than
a forest, he moved obedient-
ly with ease. Palmetto were
plet iful and everywhere as
we blazed our way through
the trail. I really enjoy the
different levels of paths
available at Pruitt. If you,
prefer you can ride thru the
forest at the bottom and go
thru with no hills to climb,
just the crunch of fallen
leaves, buried beneath the
forest floor. The hilltops give
you obstacles to go through,
like fallen Ipgs and tight
trails to maneuver around
and down, over and

through. It makes me feel as '
though I am a fearless trail
blazer. That is with one ex-
ception. You must avoid spi-
ders and their weds. I hate
spiders more than just
about.anything. In the forest
there are huge ones, almost
as big as your hand. Phil
was our leader on our hill-
top trail. I think he hates
spiders as much as I do. I
did hear him yell a few
times as he knocked down a
few webs that were unfortu-
nately inhabited.

As we traveled all the way
through our scenic hilltop
'plateau we had an amazing
view of land below us. Deer
stood quietly watching us
closely, ready to leap at any
given moment. My, they are
amazingly beautiful to see.

Just as we were heading
back down the last hill to-
wards the trailhead, the
thunder began to roll. The
clouds became darker. Oh
my! Did you
know the for-
est gets really
dark when
there is no
sunshine
shinning
through? We '
were in such
a hurry to
ride this
morning that
I forgot to put
our saddle
horn bags on our horses.
Those bags just happen. to
contain our rain ponchos.
Oops can't go back now! It
did rain and we did get wet,
however it did not stop us
from the fun we were hav-.
ing. It was phenomenal. We
had more fun than a barrel
of monkeys...wet monkeys
at that!

Later back at the trailhead
we gathered together and
had lunch and discussed our
trail ride. It was a good day
after all. It did not rain on
our parade. Well, maybe it
did but it certainly did not
sto1i us from a great trail
ride. If you love trail riding,
and good company come on
out and join us. Check us
out on the web at www.fla-
horse.com/lchc. Until next
time, happy trails to you.

FWC considering

crossbow use during

archery season

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation'Com-
mission (FWC) is consider-
ing allowing the use of cross-
bows by hunters during
archery season.

The FWC would like to hear
from Florida's hunters re-
garding their views on this
rule proposal. Hunters are
encouraged to go to
MyFWC.com/Deer for a de-
tailed summary of the pro-
posed changes and, until
March 31, provide online
comments and constructive
'feedback.


Currently only compound
bows, longbows and recurve
bows may be used during the
archery season, unless a
hunter qualifies for and has
obtained a disabled crossbow
permit. Only those persons
with that permit are allowed
to use crossbows during,
archery season.

But, if the proposal were to
become law, any hunter with
a hunting license and
archery season permit could
use a crossbow (or a bow)
during archery season begin-
ning in 2011.

For more information on this
proposal or to provide com-
ments, go to
MyFWC.com/Deer.


DCCG Carries the Flag


for the Fiddler Crabs


The Dixie County Color Guard (not associated with the
school) carried the national colors for the Fiddler Crab pa-
rade in Steinhatchpe this past weekend. Lt. Commander
Ada Alcorn was carrying the colors for this parade as prac-
tice for future parades when Commander William Bierce
may not be able to attend.

The DCCG currently has seven members and is interested
in increasing its membership by another five to seven re-
cruits. If you are in the 8th to 11th grade and interested in
performing military style flag services and/or rifle exhibi-
tion performances contact one of the current members
. about practice times. Other members are David Davidson,
Billy Filmon, Desarae Greene, Michelle Johnston, and Jen-
nifer Sparacino.


FWC: Help wildlife beyond
the cold snap

The figures are astounding
and unprecedented. More
than 4,500 sea turtles were
rescued from the cold water
in January Manatee carcass-
es continue to appear,
putting the deaths for 2010 at
more than 200 after only one
month. For comparison, the
highest number of manatee
deaths for a single calendar
year is 429.

The public can help efforts
to conserve and fund re-
search for both sea turtles
and manatees by purchasing
a specialty license plate or
decal. The extra fee for the
sea turtle tag helps fund the
Sea Turtle Grants Program.
Approximately 30 percent is


distributed to the grants pro-
gram, which is administered
by the nonprofit Caribbean
Conservation Corporation.
Visit www.helpingseatur-
tles.org for more informa-
tion. The other 70 percent of
tag revenue goes to the
FWC's Marine Turtle Protec-
tion Program to support re-.
search and management ac-
tivities related to sea turtles.

The decals are on sale for $5
each at Florida tax collec-
tors' offices, or as a volun-
tary add-on to boat registra-
tion fees. Decals from previ-
ous years are available from
MyFWC.com/SeaTurtle and.
MyFWC.com/Manatee.
Specialty license plates are
available at all county tax
collectors' offices, as well as
online at
www.buyaplate.com.

Letter to the Editor
Let me begin by saying I'm
not much of a letter writer
but what I saw and experi-
enced on Friday, February
12th compelled me to give it
a try Friday, February 12th
as most know, there was a
benefit dinner planned for
Chad Reed's family at Cross
City Park and Fanning,
Springs Shriner's Club. I
was fortunate enough to be
asked to help with the cook-
ing. At 4:00 am, I woke to
some of the most inclimate
weather I believe I've seen in
Dixie. The wind was blow-
ing hard, we had hard rain
and temperatures in the 30's.
On my way to Cross City the
weather fared no better. I
knew this dinner was for one
of the best families in Dixie,
but I had doubts of many
coming out.
Was I ever surprised to find
so many volunteers, not only
for cooking, but also for fix-
ing plates, delivering plates,
and other assistance as need-
ed.
The people of Dixie County
and surrounding counties
showed that no bad weather


can deter them from a just
cause of coming out to help.
I know that in the past few,
weeks it seems that Dixie
has been in the news, mostly
bad. However, I wish the en-
tire state could have stood
and witnessed the outpour-
ing of compassion from the
people of the Tri-county and
found .out just how we are.
From the sheriff, down to the
lowest deputy, from the fami-
lies of law enforcement and
all the other volunteers, my
hats off to all for a job well
done. Like I said in the be-
ginning, I assisted with the
cooking, but I was a very
small cog in a very huge
gear.
To the people of Dixie, Levy,
and Gilchrist, and any other
that supported this cause,
Thank you from the bottom
of my heart.
Ritk Harris & family
p.s. God Bless the family of
Chad and our Sheriff's De-
partment and volunteers. If
you see a law enforcement
personnel on the street, stop
and thank them for the job
they do.


THIS DAY IN HISTORY


February 23 marks the,
65th anniversary of the
raising of the American
Flag on Mount Suribachi
on tle-island of Iwo .
Jima, also known as "Sul-
fur Island".

On February 19,1945,
30,000 U.S. Marines land-'
ed on the Japanese Island
to take control of. the two
airstrips on island. The
US needed these airstrips
because they were the clos-
est to the main island of
Japan.
Prior to the invasion, B-24
Liberators bombed the is-
-land for 74 consecutive days
in an attempt to wear down
the Japanese. Very little was'
accomplished because of
the elaborate underground ,
tunnel system the Japanese,
had developed. Therefore
the battle would be slow go-
ing, ground gained inch by
inch. On the fifth day of the
battle, the Marines were
able to capture Mount
Suribachi, the highest point
on the island, and gain an.
insurmountable advantage.
Five Marines, and one Navy
Corpsman, Franklin Sous-
ley, Harlon Block, Michael
SStrank, John Bradley, Rene

Gagnon, and Ira Hayes, at-
tached an American flag to
a pipe and raised it on the,
mount. This historical event
was captured in the movie
"Flags of our Fathers",
based on the book by John
Bradley's son. Joe Rosenthal
snapped a photo of the
event, which has become the
most reproduced photo-
graph in history
The significance of this ac-
complishment resonated
throughout the rest of the
campaign, making it one of
the most important victo-
ries of WWII.

RE: Thanks for TEA Party
Convention
This letter is to thank the
TEA (Taxed Enough Al-
ready) Party for sending me
to Nashville to attend the na-
tional political convention. It
was a great experience and I
learned much that's applica-
ble to government locally, in
Tallahassee, and in Washing-
ton, DC.
You probably saw bits and
pieces on TV news reports,
but let me explain what it
was REALLY like. The TEA
Party movement is less than
one year old and this was its
1st convention. It was sold
out with 600 people from
every state attending the 2-
day convention and 1,000
people attending the banquet
featuring Sarah Palin as the
keynote speaker. There were
150+ people in the press
corps from all over the
world. News crews from
Japan, Italy, and elsewhere
covered this event for both
days. Yours truly was inter-
viewed twice. Also, there
were political candidates
from around the country
seeking TEA Party endorse-
ments and showing solidari-
ty with this conservative po-
litical movement.
The two-day convention con-
sisted of classes designed to
train grassroots volunteers
in how to operate political
campaigns and build voter
turnout. Senator Scott '
Brown's (the Massachusetts
Miracle) Internet Campaign
Manager demonstrated how
to use the internet for fund-
raising and mobilizing vol-
unteers. The Chairman of
the California Republican
Party taught a class about
building a political cam-
paign from the grassroots
level. Other instructors fo-
cused on topics from coali-,
tion building to "cloud" com-
puting for political purposes.


Then came Sarah Palin and
she was incredible. Her
scope of knowledge on is-
sues of .the day has certainly
grown from two years ago,
when she was suddenly
plucked from Alaska to run
as Vice-President. By the
end of her speech, everyone
in the banquet hall was
standing and shouting "Run
Sarah Run". The national
news media was shocked
and had a "deer in the head-
lights" look on their faces.
Lastly, the press kept wanti-
ng to know the future of the
TEA Party movement. I
would sum it up by saying
there are no plans to .create a
3rd political party. The 2010
short-term goal is to elect
fiscally conservative candi-
dates at all levels govern-
ment, and to "retire" free-
spending incumbent politi-
cians, particularly those in
Washington, DC.
For a historical comparison
you have to recall to over 200
years ago when a few of our
forefathers dumped tea into
the Boston Harbor to protest
high British taxes. They had
no idea their act would be a
spark to ignite many like-
minded colonists into action.
They couldn't dream their
protest would be recorded in
the history books. Today's
TEA Party movement can't
predict the future either,.
whether it will flounder or
flourish. But, at this moment
in time, it is the most excit-
ing, energetic political dis-
course in the whole county.
It has sparked a discussion
that may change the course
of our great nation.
Thanks again for asking me
to go and represent Conserv-
ative voters across North
Florida.

---ivere is one for
all dikrs. If you made
your New Year's resolution
to lose weight you have been
at it for 2 months now and
may be searching for new
ideas. I started making this
soup many years during one
of my many attempts to
slim down. It is a low calo-
rie, low fat, high fiber soup.
It makes a yummy lunch or
a filling snack and tastes
good also. You just throw in
the vegetables you and your
family enjoy Any vegetable
will do as long as it is not a
starchy vegetable, example:
potato,.beans or corn. I am
not going to give many mea-
surements because you just
put in as much or as little as
you like.

.SLu. vegetabLe sou-p

1 diced onion
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
sliced celery
1 TB olive oil (if you are re-
ally serious use non-stick
cooking spray)
Large can V-8 juice (generic
is fine)
2-3 chicken bouillon cubes
Assorted vegetables (if you
are in a hurry, use canned or
frozen)
Example: green cabbage,
carrots, zucchini, squash,


green beans, bell peppers,
snow peas, spinach, sugar
snap peas, tomatoes, mush-
rooms
Salt and pepper to taste
1-2 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp. dried oregano

In a soup pot heat the olive
oil (or spray the cooking
spray) and cook the onion
and celery over low heat un-
til softened, about 5 minutes.
The last minute add the gar-
lic.

Add your favorite vegeta-
.bles, seasonings and bouil-
lon cubes. Add V-8 juice un-
til vegetables are covered. If
you like thinner soup, add
more juice. Bring to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer, cov-
ered, about 15 minutes or
until vegetables are tender.

This soup is great reheated
so if you take your lunch to
work make enough to make.
several quick, low calorie
lunches. One cup is about 50
calories and it really helps
you get your minimum daily
requirement of vegetables.

I went online to find some
dieting tips to share with
you. One that really stood
out was to stretch out the
time it takes to eat your
meals. I always eat like I'm


trying to win a race! It takes
your brain about 20 minutes
to get the signal your stom-
ach is full. Another tip that
hit home was that the "sam-
ples" you take when testing
the food you are cooking be-
gin to add up. Also, the good-
ies the kids don't finish DO
have calories so don't clean
their plates for them. If I
kept a log of the stuff I put
in my mouth without even
thinking I have a feeling I
.would be in for a nasty.sur-
prise!

I would love to hear from
you. E-mail me any tips that
have made your life easier.
Your favorite recipe. Dieting
tips or recipes. 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-
ihg 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.

Log Cabin Quilters

: .. ',- ,::,


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, February 11th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. Our trip to the State fair was
great. We saw blue, red, white and yellow ribbons and it
was enjoyable. The traffic going down and coming back
was very busy but we had a safe day, a great bus drive and
we look forward to next year.

A lot of quilting was done on Thursday and it was great.
to have Dorothy Riggs back. She and her husband were
down earlier and her husband got sick so they returned to
Illinois. He is much better now so they are back.

Our lunch Thursday was turkey Casserole, Chinese cab-
bage, Chi-mi-chui-ney, goulash, rise casserole, peas, baked
beans, green beans and potatoes, potato soup, chicken salad,
bean salad, potato salad, pea salad, macaroni and cheese,
tomato and zucchini casserole, apples, raisin cake, pineap-
ple cake, chocolate pie and so much more.

If you ever get pushed up
against a wall by a bully, try
this:

S Don't wait. Act im-
mediately and instinctively
Grab the attacker's
hands and hold on tight so
he can't punch you
Use the wall.
Bring one foot up
as you lean back against the
wall and kick hard to the at-
tacker's stomach or groin.
S As the attacker falls
back let go of his hands.

This is a very simple tech-
nique that can quickly turn
a scary situation around.
Don't always expect one
kick to do the job though.
Sometimes the attacker can
, take a hit, or you might
miss the first time. So be
ready to do more kicks, use
both feet, knees, and don't
forget your elbows. The key
is to keep moving hard and
fast. You can use the same
elbow strikes that we have
Discussed in prior articles.

As always, there are other
techniques that will also
work to escape being
pushed up against a wall.
This particular move will
work most of the time.
However, if it doesn't you
need to know some other
techniques. A certified In-
. structor can help you learn
to defend yourself in a con-
trolled environment so no
one gets hurt or embar-
rassed.

Children should not try
this without adult supervi-
sion.

If you would like to know
how to defend against a par-
ticular attack or would like
more information about
Martial Arts please email

CALVARY TEMPLE
UPDATE

The family of Calvary contin-
ues to praise God for His
goodness and mercy Momen-
tum seems to be building as
we progress into the year of
2010, much to do I am sure
with the renewed committ-
ment to prayer (2 Chron.7:14).
Beginning the first Wednes-
day in January Calvary deter-
mined to "take back" Wednes-
day evening "Prayer Meeting."
We determined to make this
an actual prayer service.

While not an easy undertak-
ing in our self-seeking and
self-indulging generation, this
corporate invitation for God
to get involved is already pay-
ing great dividends. Three
things we are hearing for this
year (on the positive side) is
that God is sending three par-
ticular seasons to His church
(Eccle. 3:1,2). Season #1 is a
season of Supernatural En-
couragement (courage;
strength; tenacity;) to His peo-
ple. That is the current sea-
son. Season #2 will the a sea-
son of Restoration (taking
back). This includes vision,
. dreams, joy, peace, health,
family, finances, etc. Season
#3 will be a season of Signs,
Wonders, and Miracles. This
will come about as the result
of the previous. These sea-
sons must be entered into in

the order that God provides.
This is really God saying to
us, "I want to get involved in
your life and I am making
Myself available, but you
must do it according to My
times and seasons." Of
course, all this comes on the
heels of prayer! Could you
use some encouragement?
How about restoration?

These are things that God is
providing right now. Even
though they cannot be
earned, they must be pursued
and pressed into. That is
what we are attempting to do
at Calvary Temple. This is
not about building a big
church, promoting a certain
religious denomination, f
church politics, or demanding
that you believe exactly as we
do on all points of doctrine.
IT IS about trying to be obedi-
ent to God. Do you have a
home church? Does your
church preach a gospel of
good news? Perhaps you are
one of the 75% in Dixie who
do not have a home church.
If that is the case, why ndt
consider visiting us at Cal-
vary Temple. Sunday @ 10:30,
Wednesday Prayer Meeting @
7:00. No church is a perfect
church and certainly Calvary
makes no such claim. From
the pulpit to the pew we see
imperfection, but we serve a
perfect God who has the abili-
ty to used even that which is
flawed to bring about His
will.
Come see us!

Holiness Church

News

Though it was cold.day on the
outside Sunday, the peace and
presence of God was real on
the inside. We are thankful for
the continued visitation and
annointing of the Holy Spirit.
We were'glad to have all our
visitors and to Have Sister De-
lene safely back from her trip
to Honduras. The message:
Peace that passeth all under-
standing was taken from
Philippians 4: 6-8. The Apostle
Paul was writing from prison
when he said... Philippians
4:6 Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing
by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your re-
quests be made known unto
God. There is a comfort that
comes to us as we tell the Lord
all about our troubles and tri-
als. The Apostle Paul in-
structs us to Pray "with
thanksgiving" in every- ir-
cumstarice.' There is a'behefit
to prayer... Tell it to
Jesus he is a friend that's well
known. You have no other
such friend or brother tell it to
Jesus alone.


Philippians 4:7 And the
peace of God; which passeth
all understanding, shall keep'
your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus. We an-ll
need the peace of God. Some-
times our mind says things
are hopeless... what's the use,
but God says nothing is impos-
sible with him. So when we
are going through difficulties,
and the enemy influences us
to think incorrectly.. we need
to follow Paul's admonition...
Philippians 4:8 Finally,
brethren, whatsoever things
are true, whatsoever things
(are) honest, whatsoever
things(are) just, whatsoever
things (are) pure, whatsoever
things (are) lovely, Whatsoever
things.(are) of good report; if
(there be) any virtue, and if '
(there be) any praise, think on
these things.
We have been given a wonder-
,ful promise from the Lord. So '
let us therefore come boldly to
the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy, and find
grace in-the time of need, He-
brews 4:16.
We invite y(u to join us on
Wednesday night at 7:00pm
and on Sunday morning at
10:00 am for Sunday School
with morning worship at 11:00
am. Freedom Fest will be held
this Saturday night at 7:00 pm
in Steinhatchee.

The Levy County Horse,

Benefit Trail Ride on Octo-
ber 24,2009. The event is
held at the Tidewater Trail-
head in Goethe State Forest
each year in conjunction
with Forest Awareness
Monthly and Greenways and
Trails Month. This benefit
is for a great cause and
what better reason to be
out on the trails. This year's
event raised $4,100.00 that
was donated to Shands Can-
cer Center to be utilized for
the use of local breast can-
cer patients. We've donated
a total of $23,325.00 to date.

The horse club held our an-
nual Christmas ride/cam-
poutldinner during the
weekend of December 12th,
2009, at which time we pre-
sented the check to Jennifer
Adams, Clinical Social
Worker for Shands Cancer
Center. Also present for. the
presentation was Julie Eck-
er, Administrative Director
with Shands Cancer Center.
