Commission approves


controversial special


exception


Land developer Dale Her-
ring appeared before the
Commission at the regular
Thursday morning meeting
to request a special exception
to allow an RV on Lot #28, in
Suwannee River Old Town
Subdivision, an environmen-
tally sensitive area. Herring
told the Commission that he
planned to use the RV for
shelter while he works on
docks and improvements to
the lot. If he had been build-
ing a home and pulling build-
ing permits, a special excep-
tion would not have been
necessary to plad an RV on
the lot for up to 12 months.
but since a building permit
was not planned. Herring
had to apply for a special ex-
ception.
T
Several neighbors attended
the meeting to protest the in-
trusion of an "unsightly"
motor home into their river-
front subdivision. Although
the subdivision is deed-ie-
stricted to site-built homes
only, deed restrictions are
not enforced by the County.
The deed restrict ions state
that the developer could
, change them at his discre
tion without advising resi-
dents. The neighbor's objec-
tion was voiced by neighbor-
hood resident Clinton Ray,
who said that homes were
valued over S300.000 in the
area, an RV would drive
dwn values anli that, "The
Homeowner's Association
was not advised of this...l
feel.it is really wrong annd.
self-serving on his (Her-
ring's) part." Chairman
Hunt asked to table the re-
quest, saying that "I have


not had anyone callfor this,
everybody's called against
it." Commissioner Higgin-
botham agreed, saying that
even though he considers
Herring a friend, "In a year's
time, somebody else will
want to put in an RV..if
we've got opposition from the
neighbors, I'm going to vote
against it."

Herring assured the resi-
dents that "I still own one-
third of that subdivision. I'm
not going to do anyth ing."
that would decrease property
values, and that the RV
w would only be "temporary"
until a home was construct-
ed, the Commission finally
agreed to allow the special
exception.

Sandra Prescott appeared
to re-request a special ex-
ception to allow a travel
trailer park in a single faini-
ly zone in Suwannee. Build-
ing and Zoning Officer Jolm
Jenkins said, "I recommend
we table this and send it to
the North Florida Regional
Planning Council" for impar-
tial advice. Neighbor Chris
Barber, who has opposed the
special exception since the
beginning, stood and said, "I
want to be notified," before
any permanent decision is
made. Commissioner Hatch
said. "I give you my word: in
front of that camera, in
front of her (pointing at
'your humble Advocate edi-
tor), if she writes it down
Right, that you will be noti-
fled," and the motion was
tabled.

The cold weather and the
holidays bring thoughts of
oysters on the half-shell to
Florida residents. But in the
wake of the BP gulf spill,
are Florida's oysters really
safe to eat?

The NOAA and the FDA say
yes. Experts trained in a
rigorous sensory analysis
process have been testing
Gulf seafood for the pres.
ence of contaminants, and
every seafood sample from
reopened waters has,passed
sensory testing for contami-
nation with oil and disper-
sant. Nonetheless, to ensure
consumers have total confi-
dence in the safety of
seafood being harvested
from the Gulf, NOAA and
FDA Have added this second
test for dispersant when
considering reopening Gulf
waters to fishing.

Using this ne;w second test,
in the Gulf scientists have
tested 1,735 tissue samples
including more than half of
those collected to reopen

ters. Only a few showed

Tristan, Taylor and Rebecca
all competed in the same di-
vision and brought home the

This tournament was the
first for Tristan, Savannah

fish and 500 parts permil
lion for shrimp, crabs and
oysters. As such, they do not
pose a threat to human
health.

The new test detects dioctyl
sodium sulfosuccinate,
known as DOSS. a major
component of the disper-
sants used in the Gulf. DOSS
is also approved by FDA for
use in various household


products and over-the.
counter medication at'very
low levels. The best scientif-
ic data to date indicates that
DOSS does not build up in
fish tissues.

The Dixie County High
School Class of 1960 cele-
brated its 50-year reunion
with dinner and a program
on Saturday, October 23, and
on Sunday, October'24 with a
picnic honoring the DCHS
classes of 19584 1959. 1961,
and 1962. Both activities


were.held at the Dixie Coun-
ty Trail Rider's Club and
were a big success. The.
Class of '60 would like to
thank all those who attend-
ed the picnic and for the
many delicious casseroles,
vegetables, meats, desserts,
arid other dishes that they


brought in to share. With-
out a doubt, Dixie County is
a wonderful place to grow
up.
It's a fact that those in the
know remember the Class of
SIXTY as the best ever from
DIXIE.


The staff and parents of the
Larry Taylor's School of
Martial Arts are very proud
of all of you.

We would like to also include
a thank you to everyone who
has supported our team this
year by participating in our
many fund raisers, making it
possible to cover the entry
fees for our competitors.
Our new uniforms will be
here in time for the new sea-
son for those who helped
raise money for the purchase
of these uniforms.

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


My take on the election

There are a lot of long faces in Washington, DC, this week,
owing to what some consider an unfavorable outcome in
last week's election. And they're not all Democrats. Some
Republicans are bellyaching that they should have won the
Senate, but didn't because of the Tea Party candidates.
Let me get this straight. Tea Party candidates, some of
whom beat mainstream Republicans in the primaries, lost
to Democrats in the general election. But we are supposed
to believe that, had the GOP establishment been able to get
their own chosen candidates on the ballot, they'd have beat-
en enough Democrats to win a Senate majority? Seems to
me the GOP big shots ought to be wondering why a) they
didn't field candidates of their own with enough appeal to
conservative voters to win the primary races, and b) why'
they didn't get totally behind the Tea Party candidates who
typically wound up running as Republicans in the general
election.

It seems to me that the fact that these Tea Party types tend-
ed to be "different" from establishment politicians was a
plus factor. Just running as an "independent" didn't do
much for Charlie Crist. Of course, he was an establishment
Republican who became an Independent of sorts because
he knew he couldn't beat Marco Rubio in the primary I
don't know, maybe Charlie thought he could at least swing
the election to Democrat Kendrick Meek by splitting the Re-
publican vote, but that didn't happen. In any case, that ca-
per doesn't exactly make Charlie Crist a Tea Party type.
A result of Rubio's win was especially important in that a
conservative Latino won over two well-established oppo-
nents. That could put a crimp in the Democrats' tendency
to treat Latinos as a voting block they could depend on.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid managed to squeak out
a win in Nevada, despite a stiff challenge from Republican
(of Tea Party origin) Sharron Angle. You can bet old Dingy
Harry was sweating bullets on that one, and frankly I'm
surprised that he won. The polls had Sharron ahead going
into Tuesday, but not by much. Now, Harry won't have to
run again until 2016, although his Majority Leader status
could end a lot sooner than that. At least one thing con-
tributing to Reid's edge was telling people that his opponent
would take away their Social Security It's a scam that's
worked for his party since about 1940.

What a lot of people don't understand
is that only third of the Senate runs
in each two year election cycle, while
the entire House of Representatives is
upfor grabs in every election. That's
why a huge turnover in the House was
matched by only a modest gain for Re-
publicans in the Senate, where Democ-
rats went into this one with a 59-41
edge, following two favorable election
cycles. That means the near-filibuster-
proof majority they had is long gone,
which is not the same as turning
things over to the Republicans, but it
will make a difference, particularly
with the GOP's big win in the House.

The way I see it is, the most important
result of the November 2 election is
that President Obama's hell-bent
surge toward Socialism will be
stopped, or at least slowed down sig-
nificantly. For two years, the President
and an unfortunately-compliant Con-
gress have led--make that driven --our
country down the same dead end
paths that have decimated Europe
since World War II. The new Congress
can't turn everything around, but it
can stop matters from getting worse.
That's about all we can hope for at the
moment, but 2012 could bring a return
to rational government. It will be up
to the voters to decide when that time
comes.

Thank God for better men than me


by Kathy McKinney


W'ar is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of
Things. The decayed.and degraded state of
moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that
nothing is worth war is much worse. Theper-
son who has nothing for which he is willing to
fight, nothing which is more important than his
own personal safety, is.a miserable creature and has no
chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions
of better men than himself John Stuart Mill (1868)


Think about Senator Barbara Boxer, who demanded that the
General address her as "Senator" during hearings, instead
of the military honorific "Ma'am." She assumed, in her ar-
rogance and ignorance, that her status as a legislator made
her rank superior to that of a general, and that she could
lecture him like a schoolboy. It's a mistake that many civil-
ians seem to make. As a civilian, you have no status. The
lowliest private scrubbing potatoes in a mess hall outranks
you, even if you did go to Harvard. And if you did go to an
Ivy League school, I'd be willing to bet that Private is abet-
ter man than you, by any measure.

that somehow "smart" was somehow better than "willing to

seems to permeate the media these days. Have you noticed
how often our soldiers are presented as dumb "victims" who
were "misguided" or "misled" enough to join the military
during stories of Iraq or Afghanistan? Apparently the guys
over at CNN have some growing up to do, too.


Dear Editor,

I noticed in all the years of
attending the Cross City
Veteran's Day Parade the
turnout is somewhat a joke.
It is disturbing that a pet-
, son is given a paid day off
due to the ser-
vice of our
veterans but
does not
choose to even
honor them'
by attending
the parade. I.
think this is a
small sacri-
fice consider-
ing the one
they have giv-.
en for us.

I know the
school system
has some pro-
grams to hon-
or our veter-
ans on that
day and I commend them
for this. It would awesome
if the system could make
arrangements to have a
group of students attend the
parade (for instance 6th
graders) so that they could
experience and realize the
importance of this day
This way most children
would be able to attend at
least one time. I'm sure it
would be something they


Society needs all kinds of people. There is a
place for the brainiac, and for the soldier. On Thursday,
though, I will remember that regardless of what the modern
media tells us, that above all .others, we should respect and
honor the men and women who make the rest of our civi-
lization possible. On Veterans Day, I will remember that Sgt.
Jane Nobody, driving supply trucks in some blasted desert
in Afghanistan, is more important to our country then any
Bill Gates or Brad Pitt. I am reminded to be humbled and
grateful that the crazy old homeless Vietnam Vet suffering
from post-traumatic stress disorder and alcoholism may
have sacrificed his mental and physical health in my name.

But most of all, I am truly thankful that there are so many
men and women who are so much better than myself.


will always remem-
ber as special.


As it is said, "FREE-
DOM ISN'T FREE,"
* and I would like the
CHALLENGE the cit-
izens of Dixie Co. to
go to this year's pa-
rade and honor the
men and women who
fought.
and is
fight-
ing to
keep
our
nation
FREE.
It is
not

long
and
would
mean a great
deal fo.the
Veterans in
our area. I
hope to see
you there.

Outdoors & Law


'Frai/ fiR ers
by Bonnie Wilson

A group of us from LCHC
decided to get together and
go to the Eerie Acers Farm
for some "Halloween" fun
being that it was Hal-
loween weekend. Nancy &
Ron Nibert, Phil & Rowena
Parent, Leonora & Jim
Hale, Ruth & John Brace,
.and Dave and myself.

Being the brave souls that
we are, we all decided to
face "scary" on a full stom-
ach. We met and dined at
Dekes Steak House in
Chiefland as Eerie Acers is
just a short ways down
from the restaurant
Soon we were all at
Eerie Acers and preparing
to be scared. Notice I didn't
say "scared to death" as I
did not want to think about
that scenario on Halloween
weekeAd. Personally speak-
ing I am much too young to
"die"!.

We were met at the gate by
Susan and Philip Watson
and I must say that Susan
and Philip did an outstand-
ing job on'their property
making Eerie Acres an
eerie place. We started out
on the haunted trail walk-'
ing (instead of riding our
horses) as Phil and Row
lead the packwith Nancy,
Ron, and the rest following.
I grabbed Dave's arm (just
to keep myself steady -
right!) and we along with
the group headed down the.
spooky dimly lit trail. Boy
this was sure different than
riding my sweet Coby!
Ghosts and goblins, oh my!
Soon I find that we are not
alone at the back of our
group as we had picked up
a spook or two keeping us
in line on our walking trail.
A crazed lady with a hatch-
et who looked uncannily
like "Lizzy Borden" and a
"zombie-like" creature who
kept smiling at me! I bury o
my head on Dave's shoulder
and keep walking behind
Leonora, and Ruth. Just
then a wild alligator jumps
out of the bushes right in
froht of them and we all
scream. Wow, that gives a
whole new meaning to
"gator bait" for me!

The creatures are now sur-
rounding us as they lead us


to a "bus". This doesn't look
good to me and I say to
Dave "lets pass this one up".
Dave laughs as "Lizzy" rais-
es her hatchet and waves it
at us and Dave says "I think
she wants us on the bus".
Lizzy nods and points with
her waving hatchet. Uh Oh!
the bus! Oh dear it's the
bus! It's not one that I
would recommend that you
catch for a ride. It's eerie in-
deed and I think the people
who were already on the
"bus" must have worked for
the telephone company at
one time as they certainly
wanted to "reach out and
touch" you The bus cer-
tainly gave me the creepy
crawlies. OOOH! It had
strobe lights that added to
the eerie atmosphere, crazy
music or was that me
screaming? You can bet
your sweet bippy I was glad
to get out of there!

Outside was back to more
scary tactics. Just before .
our haunted trail ended
there was this small house
on the right. You know you
just had to look in and see
what it was all about. In the
movies someone just has to
check it out while someone
Else is saying "don't go
there!" our "Leader of the
Pack" Phil was the first to
look into the small eerie
house on the right, He was
amazed to see a beautiful,
stunning lady dressed in a
beautiful black gown stand-
ing inside smiling back at
him.This was nice until she
turned into a monster right
before your eyes! Can you
say "Unbelievable!" THEN
the monster jumped right
out at you ..OH YES! He did!
I mean to say he was in
your face! Scared the
"beegees" out of all of us!
wahooooooooooo! We
topped the trail walk off
with a hay ride.

Well that's my Halloween
SStory and I'm sticking to it!
I would like to thank Susan
: and Philip Watson for their
outstanding workmanship
on Eerie Acers. It was fasci-
nating! Thank you for scar-
ing us "almost to death". We
all hope you will do it again
next year and thanks for be-
ing our guide as I know you
will be lurking for us!


Great Suwannee

River Clean-up



Friends and neighbors of the
Suwannee River have been
gathering in and on the his-
toric river since September
for the Great Suwannee River
Clean-up. "From Georgia to
the Gulf" is the rally cry
from Fritzi
Olson of
Current
Problems, a
river-con-
servation
non-profit
serving
north cen-
tral Florida.
It is nearly
time for the
clean-up
along the
last twenty
miles which
cuts the
53,000-acre
Lower
Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge in half.

On Tuesday, November 2,
Mrs. Walker's class milked a
cow!

Well, not a real cow, but
rather a wooden replica of a
dairy or Holstein cow cour-
tesy of Mrs. Dana Langford,
Education Coordinator from
the Dixie County Soil and
Water Conservation Dis-
trict. During Mrs. Lang-
fdrd's dairy cow presenta-
tion, the students learned
not only how to milk a cow,
but they also learned a lot of
interesting facts about them
and the milk they produce.
For example, a cow eats
more than 100 pounds of


feed everyday and that
Florida is the southeast's
largest dairy producer. The
students also made a cow
puppet, ate cheese and
earned prizes for answering
questions. Cece fawson
said, "It was a great activity
and a lot of fun."

From COMMISSION, pg 1

A road closing of a section
of NE 505 Street requested
by William Earl Malone was
passed without opposition.

Suwannee Water and Sewer
Manager Buddy Lamb was
on the agenda, but was not
present at the meeting due
to the birth of a new grand-
child that required him to
"pull babysitting duty"

Patrick Allen appeared to
get approval for a National
Hospice Month Proclama
tion, and the VFW got a
proclamation naming No-
vember 7-13 Veteran Ap-
preciation Week.

Kay McCallister appeared to
update the Commission on
details that will need to be
worked out after the passage
of the Tourism Tax. Collec
tion should be handled by
the Department of Revenue,
but the County will have to
work out a system of dis-
persing funds.

Larry Grubbs and Eric
Black appeared to present
the Forestry Report and to
let the Commission know
that Dixie won the "Trav-
elling Smokey" Award.
Emergency Services Direc-
tor TIm Alexander thanked
the men for assistance with
fire fighting efforts, saying
"We've got a limited number
of volunteers, .and forestry
has been right there helping
us."

Phil Bishop of North Flori-
da Professional Services up-
dated the Board on ongoing
paving and building pro-
jects. He said that improve-
ments at Gornto should be
"complete by April; the
FURDAP deadline."

Rita Harris said thatCDBG
funds are being sought to
pave 2.9 miles on Thomp-
son Road,. 14.rniles on Scott
Thompson, and 1/2 mile of
Brenda Street.

Tim Alexander informed
the Board that after a
decade of service, that Vol-
unteer Suwannee Fire
Chief Ben West would be
stepping down, apparently
as a result of an accident
between a fire truck and an
RV. A recognition of his ser-
vice was discussed.

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy informed the Board
that he wanted to schedule a
workshop to "review the
union contract," for coun--
ty employees. Commission-
er Gene Higginbotham
asked, "Haven't the employ-
ees applied to get rid of the
union? There's no reason to
sign a contract if the em-


Log Cabin Quillters

he Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, Nov 4th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was a
very busy day as several of the
quilters are beginning to put up
quilts for the Show. There is
much to be done and it takes
time. First we have our Thanks-
giving Dinner Nov 18 and after
that we can finish and get ready
for the Show (Nov 26 Dec 5).
Then it's time to get ready for
the State Fair in Tampa.
We are having many things
brought in and if you have any-
thing to display or sell bring it
out. We will try to find room for
it.
Johnny and six boys were out
Friday They got out sink hold


It


ployees are about to vote it
out."

Commissioner Hatch ar-
s gued in favor of scheduling
the workshop, just in case,
saying that "If they don't
vote it out, we're gonna be
S sitting there with our
britches down." The Board
agreed and set a tentative
workshop for November the
16th at 3:00 pm.

Mike Cassidy continued,
saying that the Board
should consider a policy dis-
Sallowing "cut and patch"
when running utilities
across county roads. He said
that directional boring
should be required, because,
"Once you cut a road, it's al-
ways cut and there nothing
to match it." He said, "The
question is, do you want
e new roads cut for a water-
- line?"

SIn unison, Commissioners
Higginbotham, Edmonds,
Hunt and Johnson, all said,
"NO."

The Board agreed to donate
an unused 1992 Dodge van to
the Town of Cross City

Commissioner Hatch refer-
enced the recent arrest of
an employee at Dixie
Chevrolet for theft, saying
that the County had're-
ceived some double invoices
From them as a part of that
theft and that "Denise Lytle
caught the double invoices,"
and thanking her for her at-
tention to detail that saved
the county money.

Hatch also thanked County
Commissioner Troy John-
son who was defeated in the
midterm election, "for the
honesty and integrity he's
shown up here for four
years."

Chairman Hunt agreed, say-
ing that "During training,
t they told us 'Now, we're.in, .
troducing you to the fish-
bowl,'I know what that
means, now. Troy, you've
beei a good Commissioner,
you've been honest, and I
appreciate that."

Commissioner Edmonds
said, "Troy, it's been an hon-
or to serve with you. You'll
be missed."

Commissioner Johnson
thanked them for their kind
words, and said, "I appreci-
ate ya'll putting up with me
for four years. I've bumped
heads with some of you, but

take car of and took down quilts
and put new ones up. There are
always things to be done here
and they get it all done and we
appreciate everything they do.
Thanks Lancaster.
A man from Crystal River
brought in a quilt his mother
had made in the 50's. He had it
cleaned and all the cotton they
used inside is now in a ball. Be
careful when a quilt is washed,
sometimes it's better to leave
them alone. ,
Lunch was enjoyed with Fried
chicken, chicken and rice, slaw,
brown rice, chicken casserole,
brownies, more brownies,
chocolate pudding, lemon cake
and so much more.

From OYSTERS, pg 1

"This test adds another lay-
er of information, reinforc-
ing our findings to date that
seafood from the Gulf re-
mains safe."

"This new test should help
strengthen consumer confi-
dence in Gulf seafood," said
Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D.,
Commissioner of the Food
and Drug Administration.
"The overwhelming majori-
ty of the seafood tested
shows no detectable residue,
and not one of the samples
shows a residue level that
would be harmful for hu-
mans. There is no question
Gulf seafood coming to mar-
ket is safe from oil or disper-
sant residue."

The 1,735 samples tested so
far were collected from June
to September and cover a
Wide area of the Gulf. The
samples come from open ar-
eas in state and federal wa-
.ters, and from fishermen
who brought fish to the
docks at the request of fed-
eral seafood analysts. The


samples come from a
range of species, in-
cluding grouper, tuna,
wahoo, swordfish,
gray snapper, butter-
fish, red drum, croak-
er, and shrimp, crabs
and oysters.

To combat the unde-
served bad reputation
that gulf seafood may
have developed, BP
will pay $20 million to
his department over
the next three years to
help fund enhanced
seafood inspections
and marketing efforts
aimed at restoring
public confidence in
the safety of Gulf of
Mexico seafood.

The company will pro-
vide $10 million for
seafood testing and
$10 million for market-
ing over the next three
years, and a clause in
the memorandum of
understanding that
constitutes the agree-
ment provides up to a
three-year extension

If you are concerned about
the source of raw oysters,

the certified shipper's tag or
information that accompa-
nies legally harvested live

vester information on con-
tainers of raw shucked

could be illegally harvested
from polluted waters and

sure visitors to Florida that
we still have pristine and

Many thanks to the TDC

Mr. Man was driving through
Old Town and saw Timmy Cline
was selling smoked mullet. He
passed on by at first but made
the mistake of coming home
and mentioning it to me. A few
minutes later as I was heading
out to beg him to go get us some
he was heading in to see how
many I thought we would need.
He brought home six and they
were huge and fat. Well, we ate
all we could and still had a
bunch left over. He asked if I
could make smoked mullet dip.
I looked up a recipe online and
tweaked it up for our tastes. Ac-
tually, I should say my tastes,
because I found out later there
was too much onion in it for his
liking. I gave some to my Mom
and Dad and they loved it. Took
some to my in-laws and while
they said it was good, I could
tell they liked a more tradition-
al dip. So I am going to give you
both versions and you can
choose.

swoleed MWuLLet i'*?p

1 % cups smoked mullet flaked.
1/3 cup softened cream cheese
% cup mayo
1 Tb. Lemon juice
1 Tb. Worcestershire sauce
% cup minced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Hot sauce to taste

Combine all ingredients in a
bowl and mix well. Chill for 1 2
hours before serving. This
recipe came from www.hunt-
fishcook.com

I added about % cup cheddar
cheese
% cup pickle relish

My Mother said she liked my
version because it didn't taste
as fishy. My brother- in law said
he couldn't taste the smoked '
mullet as well. So it's really up
to your tastes and what you


like.,


My conversation with my
brother-in-law led to a discus-
sion about salmon patties. I love
them but have only made them
once or twice. All I could re-
member was the recipe was
good and it used stuffing mix. I
decided to look up the recipe
and give it to you guys. You may
be able to tell by the ingredients
but I want to make sure to say I
found this on Kraft's website,
www.kraft.com.

saLwvov, Calees

1 can (14.7 oz.) salmon, drained,
skin and bones discarded
1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuff-
ing Mix for Chicken
1 cup KRAFT Shredded Low-
Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella
Cheese
3/4 cup water
2 green onions, sliced
1/3 cup KRAFT Real Mayo May-
onnaise
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Make It
MIX all ingredients. Shape into
12 patties, using about 1/3 cup
stuffing mixture for each patty
Refrigerate 10 min.
HEAT large nonstick skillet on
medium heat. Add patties to
skillet in batches.
COOK 6 min. or until golden
brown on both sides, turning
carefully after 3 min.
Kraft Kitchens Tips
Make Ahead
Patties can be shaped ahead of
time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours
before cooking as directed.
Serving Suggestion
Serve with Kraft Tartar Sauce.
Or, serve with a mixed green
salad tossed with your favorite
KRAFT Light Dressing.

Thank you for your kind e-
mails and comments. Keep the
recipes and tips coming. Just e-
mail me at cravey644@bell-
south.net.


Thank You!
I'd like to say Thanks for everyone's prayers, calls, messages
and the many visits during my time in the hospital. It meant
a lot to me. Thanks Kathy, Danielle, the kiddos, Courtney and
Hal, and Mr. Glenn and Mrs. Nancy for all the flowers that
were sent. And thanks to Mrs. Betty, Crystel and Lil' Ray-
mond for the flowers, balloons and the angel figure. Thanks
again everyone for all the prayers and calls. And thanks for
the continued prayers as I continue to recover from surgery. I
Love you all!

During WWI, the marines
served a central role in the
conflict. The Marines fought
their famed battle at Belleau

their reputation in history.
In WWII, the Marines
played a major role in the
Pacific battles in places
such as Guadalcanal,
Bouganville, Tarawa, Guam,

The Marines
took part in
several ma-

Social Security


Questions and

Answers
By Ruqayyah Nicholas
Social Security District Manager;
Gainesville, Fl

Question:
How do you replace a dam-
aged Social Security card?
Answer:
While you can replace your
Social Security card for free
if it is lost or stolen, you
may not have to do so.
Knowing your Social Securi-
ty number is what is most
important. You may need a
new card if you are starting
a new job and your employ-
er asksto see the card. For
more information about get-
ting a replacement card, go
to
www.socialsecurity.gov/ss-
number.

Question:
How much difference will it
make if I defer retirement
benefits until age 70?
Answer:
It can be significant. Let's
say your full retirement age
is 66 and your monthly ben-
efit starting at that age is
$1,000. If you choose to defer
receiving benefits until age
70, you would increase your
monthly benefit amount to
$1,320. That's almost an ex-
tra $4,000 each year for the
rest of your life. This in-
crease is from delayed re-
tirement credits you receive
for your decision to post-
pone receiving benefits past
your full retirement age.
The benefit amountat age
70, in this example is 32 per-
cent more than you would
receive per month if you
chose to start getting bene-
Sfits at full retirement age.
And, this higher benefit
wouldicbntinue for as long
as you live. You can estimate
your future benefits at dif-
ferent ages using our Retire-
ment Estimator at www.so-
cialsecurity.gov/estimator.

Question:
I receive my Supplemental
Security Income (SSI) pay-
ments on the first of the
month. What happens when


42. Novelist Jong
43. Tribal symbol
48. Quarrel
50. Picks from the
menu
51. Andean pack
animal
52. Alcoholic-cakes
53. Like some bombs
and cards
55. Like fresh
concrete
59. Basilica center
60. out a living
61. Poet Teasdale
62. Shirt with a
reptilian logo,
once
63. Four six-packs .
65. AFL's partrier

\ :


the first of the month falls
on a Saturday?

Answer:
If you receive an SSI pay-
meht on the first of the
month, and the first of the
month falls on a Saturday,
Sunday, or legal holiday,
your payment should arrive
on the previous banking
day. For more information,
visit our Schedule of Social
Security Benefit Payments
at
www.socialsecurity.gov/pub
s/calendar.htm. Keep the
reference handy. And re-
member, if you have direct
deposit, you'll never have to
wait for your payment to ar-
rive in your mailbox; it will
be directly deposited'into,
your account.

Question: i
I applied for disability bene-
fits three months ago and
still haven't received an an-
swer. When should I expect
to be notified of the deci-
sion?
Answer:
The length of time it takes
to receive a decision on your
disability claim is usually
from three to five months. It
can vary depending on sev-
eral factors, but primarily
on:
S The nature of your
disability;
S How quickly we:ob-
tain medical evidence from
your doctor or other med?
ical source;
S Whether it is neces-
sary to send you for a med-
ical examination to obtain
evidence to support your
claim; and
S Whether your claim
is randomly selected for
quality assurance review of
the decision.
The more information you
can provide about your dis-
ability and medical
'providers during the initial
application, the more likely
the process will go faster.


The best way to prepare for
a disability application is to
use the Disability Starter
Kit located online at
www.socialsecurity.gov/s-
ability/disability_starter-k
ts.htm.

Pentecostal Holiness
Church News

Our weekly choir practice
certainly has paid off! The
singers and instrumental
team sounds awesome!
Elaine Standridge also sang
a special entitled "Flower in
the rain". Psalms 33:3 says
"Sing to Him a new song;
play skillfully with a shout of
j, joy". Boy does our choir do
v that, and the congregation's
not to bad either.
Our new mission director,
Mr. Randy Miller, showed a
brief video about Global Out-
reach. "GO" is an organiza-
tion based on the commis-
sion Jesus gave His church
moments before He ascended
to Heaven; also GO is the an-
nual IPHC offering to reach
the nations. To learn more
about this organization you
can go to wmm.iphc.org/go.
There is so much need in the
world today and every little
bit helps. There is a lot of
need right here in our com-
munity as well. Pastor
Richardson's message Sun-
day morning was on visions.
Proverbs 29:18, Where there
is no vision the people will
perish; but he that keepth
the law, happy is he. The
word vision in this scripture
meaning having a long-term
goal is an absolute necessity
to anybody who is going any-
where. PHC has a great vi-
sion for our church and com-
munity God is lining up
People to start new min-
istries that will not only
touch many people in Dixie
County but around the world
as well.


Mrs. Marking is ordained by
Dr. Bill Hamon of Christian
International and is an an-
nointed minsiter to release
the prophetic word of the
Lord that will cause lives to
be changed because of the
Hope in Jesus Christ.

ner after the services will

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Familles
Crown Point, LA


I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke,
and I bought it. We were working hard to build a business, then the spill'
hit. BP said they would try to make things right. But how was an energy
company going to help our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us totake a number and wait'in line. Instead,
they asked us if we could serve food to the workers, engineers, scientists,
Sand Ibcal, residents they had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy
round the clock. And we weren't the only ones. They hiredka lot of local
businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have kept ,businesses
up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our
restaurant's open six days a week: Customers are filling our restaurant
again and-we think it's a good time to come down to the Gulf Coast.
And if we could make just one request, please think of us when planning
your next vacation. We're still here and while.it's been tough, we are
still cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places ready,,
to welcome you when you come down. So don't wait. We're looking
forward to seeing you.
