Live! At Dowling.Park concludes the 2005-06

season with a vintage music program


By Sally Q. Smith, Office for
Retirement Services, Advent
Christian Village
The 18th annual Live! At
Dowling Park Artist Series at
Advent Christian Village an-
nounces the 2005-06 season
finale concert-Ken Lelen,
Vintage Music on Vintage In-
struments-on Friday, Jude 16,
at 3 p.m.'in Dacier Manor and
at 7. p.m. in Phillips Dining
Room. Lelen will strum rag-
time, blues and folk tunes
from the 1920s, 1930s and
1940s, while pairing.each tune
with a guitar from that period.
Moreover, he will be accom-
panied by Suwannee County's
very own Judge Bill Slaughter
as bassist!
For nearly three decades,
Lelen was a business and real
estate journalist for news me-
dia such as The Washington
Post, The Times of Trenton,
N.J., and NJBIZ. In 1997,
while driving his lawn mower,
Lelen vowed to leave his jour-
.nalistic career in order to pur-
sue his dream career as a mu-
sician. 'His research, writing
and marketing skills proved to
be quite useful as he began his
new life,- as well as his new
business, Vintage Music Con-
certs.
Like many musicians, Lelen
has chosen select audiences
F 9-

vSSr s^^S^~s wi^l


for his gigs. Says Lelen, "I've
focused on retirement com-
munities,. small theaters and
annual events where there are
groups that will find my vin-
tage music program attrac-
tive." Nearly two-thirds of his
concerts are held in retirement
communities, many of which
are continuing care retirement
communities. Lelen says he is
very comfortable with this au-
dience and adds that perform-
ing for retirees reminds him
"of his mother's passage from
widowhood to a retirement
community, and from inde-
pendent living to skilled nurs-
ing" from the life she led be-
fore her strokes.
Lelen has been playing the
guitar for over 40 years. He
owns more than 20 guitars and
brings five or six of them to
each concert. With a reper-
toire of familiar lyrics and
catchy tunes, Lelen's. music
appeals to people of all ages.
According to the Bergen
Record, "Musician Ken Lelen
has his own idea of harmonic
convergence. The right guitar,
for the right song, for the right
audience." Lelen mostly "solo
gigs," and, on occasion, plays
with other musicians.
Ticket prices for this con-
cert are as follows: ACV
members: $8, adults: $12, stu-

2006 POLITICAL CAMPAIGN


Linda Dye seeks District 4 County Commission seat


The Dye has been cast, so to
speak, as Wellborn resident Linda
Dye has let it be known she. is
joining the race for the District 4
County Commissioner seat up for
grabs in the Sept. 5 primary elec-
tion.
Dye filed her necessary paper-
work June 8, with the Suwannee
County Supervisor of Election's
Office .in Live Oak, confirming
her intentions to seek the job that
is presently held by one of her
two opponents.
Dye grew up in Lake City
where, she attend public schools,
graduating from Columbia High
School in 1964. For the past 26
years, Dye and her husband, Don-
ald, have lived in Wellborn
where, for the past 18 years, she
has owned and operated the Kor-
nucopia Gift Shop. She and Don-
ald have two sons, five grandchil-
dren and one great-grandchild.
Dye served on .the Wellborn
Community Park. Recreational
Advisory Board which, under the
guidance of Suwannee Parks and
Recreation Director Greg Scott,
secured a $50,00 grant from the


state of Florida, monies that were
used to upgrade the park's exist-
ing facilities.
Dye is a past member of Altrusa
International of Live Oak, an in-
ternational business women's or-
ganization which is a major sup-
porter of the "Take Stock in Chil-
dren Scholarship Program," a
program which helps deserving
young students who otherwise
may not have the opportunity to
further their education. Dye also
served on Suwannee County's
Advisory Committee for the Gov-
ernor's Sesquicentennial Celebra-
tion in honor of Florida's 150th
year of statehood.
Her interest in local and county
government began when Dye was
appointed by the Suwannee Coun-
ty Board of County Commission-.
ers to serve two consecutive,
three-year terms on the Suwannee
County Zoning Board of Adjust-
ment, and the Suwannee County
Planning and Zoning Board. She
served from Sept. 19, 1995 until
September 2001, her last three
years as chairman. At the comple-
tion of her second term, the Com-


missioners
presented
Dye with a
Plaque of
Appreciation
for her six
years of ded-
icated ser-
vices to the
citizens of
Suwannee
County. It is
this previous

and the
knowledge
she acquired
during her -'
six years of
working on Linda Dye
county zon-
ing and planning issues that leads
Dye to believe her presence on
the County Commission Board'
would be a positive asset, should
she be elected to represent 'Dis-
trict 4 as its' Commissioner for
the coming four years.
With the county's continuing
population growth, Dye feels
Suwannee County must insure all


of its' citi-
zens, whether
they live in
urban or in
rural areas,
t that adequate
911 services
will be avail-
able so if and
when the
S a need for these
services arise,
all citizens
will benefit
irregardless
of where one
may live in
the county.
County road
maintenance
and the future
paving of existing, unpaved coun-
ty roads will be one of the con-
cerns Dye will bring to the Com-
mission. Dye will also seek new
industry and business ventures for
the county which will offer not
only quality employment oppor-
tunities and a brighter future for
those who call Suwannee County
home, but will also encourage our


tax dollars to stay at home instead
of crossing the borders into
neighboring counties. If elected,
Dye is confident she can help
make the right choices for Dis-
trict 4 and Suwannee County.
While Dye is aware that she is
not alone in wanting what is best
for all who reside in Suwannee
County, and while she knows
there will be many issues more
difficult to deal with than others,
she makes this promise to the vot-
ers of District 4: "I honestly be-
lieve that in my doing the very
.best that I can do for District 4,
all of Suwannee County will ben-
efit. I make only one promise to
my constituents, and it is this: If I
am elected to represent District 4,
I promise that you will hear my
voice and, through me, your voice
will be heard."
Dye encourages anyone who
may have a concern about the fu-
ture of Suwannee County to call
her, and she will discuss those
concerns with you. You can reach
Linda Dye at one of the following
numbers, 386-963-3626 or 386-
963-4898.

"Let us not become weary in do-
ing good, for at the proper time
we will reap a harvest if we do
not give up."

C. Regan, publisher, and Susan K.
SUSAN K. LAMB Lamb, managing editor. Our
Managing Editor View is formed by that board.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor::
Our family was one of the first families'to set-
tle Live Oak and Suwannee County well over
150 years ago. We have ancestors buried all
over Suwannee County and in the Live Oak city
cemetery.
The Live Oak Cemetery, for as long as my
brother and myself have been around, has al-
ways been a very, serene and beautiful place
where we have laid our loved ones to rest. Our
parents and grandparents have taken us both
on walks through this beautiful cemetery over
the years, and they were glad to know they too
would also be interred in this place of beauty
and serenity. Our daddy used to tell us that the
cemetery would always have perpetual care
long after all of us \\ere gone, and I'm sure that
meant preserving its- natural beauty and not
stripping the cemetery of'its trees and shrubs.
Our grandparents Would be.horrified to know
that a handful of uncaring qocal politicians,
some who were probably not even born in Live
Oak, would have the right to come in and liter-
ally destroy this place of beauty. New city
councilman John Hale a lifelong resident of
Live Oak seems to be the only one with any
common sense regarding this issue, and is on,
record, as being totally opposed to the butcher-
ing of the cemetery.
Trees and shrubs are not the only things be-
ing considered by the city. To add insult to in-
jury,., the city N'.ants to .remove all personal
items'from the grave sites; Ange1s. vases,' etc.
We realize that some ornaments are gaudy in
appearance, but the majority of the graves have
simple tokens of love to honor a departed fam-
ily member, and these items are sacred to sur-
viving family.
It was mentioned in the Suwannee Democrat
that some of the families held actual deeds to
their cemetery lots and this includes our fami-
ly. If either the city of Live Oak or OMI touch-
es these deeded lots, they would open a Pando-
ra's box that would"cause the city of Live Oak
and OMI a great deal of pain for many years to
come.
There are economical ways to keep the ceme-"-,
tery mowed, weeded and pruned since the city
is evidently unwilling 'and too cheap' to do it
themselves. Something we fail to understand is
when the city charges us from $400 to $600 per
grave when selling the property plus another
$200 to open a grave, where does this money
go? I ran a crew of prison inmates from ap-
proximately 1986 until 1992 while employed
with the state prison system at no charge to the
city or the taxpayers. The city only had one full
time employee who maintained the cemetery
and between him and the inmate crew, we kept
the cemetery looking nice. My crew even
"opened tip" the now full section of cemetery
grounds across from Walts Live Oak Ford when
it was nothing but an area of planted pines,
once again at no cost to the city or the taxpay-
ers. If you do the math at $600 per grave, then
think how many graves can be put in an acre of
land. This is probably one of the highest real
estate properties in the world as real estate
goes and the city claims they can't afford to
keep it maintained. There are three correctional
facilities in the area and each has a work camp,
(not counting the Sheriff's Office). I'm sure that
one of these institutions could spare a work
crew at least one or two days a week for ceme-
tery maintenance, with the city providing the
equipment.
I may be wrong by speaking for all the fami-
lies involved, but I think the majority would be
with me in saying that if the cit',' of Live Oak


and OMI want a fight concerning this issue,
then bring it on.

Council for Progress holds annual meeting, elects new officers


Susan K. Lamb
Democrat Managing Editor

Council for Progress for
Suwannee County recently
held its annual meeting and
election of officers for 2006.
The meeting, held at
Farmer's Co-Op, was a lun-
cheon catered by the Dixie
Grill.
John Martz was elected to
serve as chairinan for the next
year, along with vice chair-
man Tim Alcorn, treasurer
Todd Lawrence and secretary
Dennis Cason.
Reports were given on the
progress made in the commu-
nity over the past year involv-
ing new businesses. It was
noted that Suwannee County
is rapidly growing and new
businesses such as Lowe's
and Greencycle are coming to
the -area. A new post office,


slated for Live Oak has stalled
due to a government freeze on
new construction at this time,
but all in all, speakers said,
the outlook for industry and
new businesses in Suwannee
County is bright.
The Council thanked the
Suwannee County Commis-
sion for giving a tax abate-
ment to Greencycle, which is
now seeking a new site off SR
51 for its manure processing
plant.
The Council for Progress of
Suwannee County is part of
the Suwannee County Eco-
nomic Alliance which is com-
posed of the Suwannee Coun-
ty Chamber of Commerce,
Suwannee County Tourist De-
velopment Council and
Suwannee County Develop-
ment Authority. It is -the pub-
lic relations arm of the eco-
nomic development and
works directly with expand-


Something to Smile About


ifig businesses and businesses
that are considering locating
in Suwannee County.
2005 outgoing Suwannee
County Economic Alliance
Chairman Jerry Martin said in
his annual report that the
Council needs new members
to increase the 2006 goals of
brining in additional new
businesses. Members were
encouraged to contact other
business people in the county
and get them involved.
Coy Howell, 2006 Chamber
of Commerce President, said
the Chamber sponsored a
number of events throughout
the year, including setting up
an office in Live Oak for the
Business enterprise Center to
help small a businesses in
Suwannee and Lafayette
counties., An office was also
set up in Hamilton County to
serve Hamilton and Madison
counties. Howell talked about
the various other events that
put Suwannee County on the
map during 2005.
The Chamber is a co-op of
businesses and individuals'
working together with the


main goal of advancing the
civic and social betterment
and interests of its members
and community.
Suwannee County Devel-
opment Authority Chairmar
Tim Alcorn said the past sev-
eral years have been very suc-
cessful with several new busi-
nesses in the East 90 Com-
merce Centre. Four more
closings were scheduled for
additional sales of business
property, he said. "This means
more jobs and more tax mon-
ey!" Alcom said.
Alcorn stressed that the
SCDA only has $10,000 per
year in income and that comes
from the state from the pari-
mutual funding along with the
profits made frgm the sale of
industrial park lots. Alcorn
said that's not much money to
work with to bring in big
business, but still SCDA has
been very successful in its ef-
forts.
The SCDA is an organiza-
tion that works for economic
development and has two in-
dustrial parks in Suwannee
County.


Suwannee County Tourist
Development 'Council Chair-
man Dick Calvitt stated that
the Suwannee River Valley
continues to be on of Florida's
top tourist attractions. Calvit
said during 2005, the SCTDC
collected $96,521.32 from the
county's 2 percent bed tax, 9
percent more than over the
previous year. Numerous pro-
jects were funded with the
money, including $10,000 to
the city for Christmas lights,
$5,000 for the Branford River
Reunion for the July 4 cele-
bration, $3,500 to the Suwan-
nee County Fair Board,
$5,000 to the Christmas on
the Square committee and
other events that bring in
tourists. Also funded was ad-
vertising and membership in
the Original Florida Visitors
Guide, partnered with the Co-
lumbia County Tourist Devel-
opment Council on billboard
advertising and membership
with the USA Visit Florida
promotion. The SCTDC
works with the local tourism

of the four organizations cre-

Many activities were
planned for the week, includ-

fire-truck rides. Youth also
had a luau, carnival, talent

! Suwannee County Fire/Res-

to give excited campers a ride
in the fire truck.
"They are consumed with
having fun," one of the camp
counselors commented during
an outing at the pool June 14.
Cameron Howell,, 10, 'of
Wellborn, was eager to swim
in the pool while his coun-
selor Josh Williams covered
his back with sunscreen.
Howell, holding a water gun
in his hand ready to squirt his

Suwannee County. When the
swine industry was in need of
organization, Mr. Poucher
was a founding father of the
North Florida Regional
Swine Producers Association,
which helped to mentor small
producers through education-
al activities.
Mr. Poucher, president of
the Suwannee County Farm
Bureau, on the Suwannee
Valley Electric Cooperative
Board of Directors and
Suwannee Count-, Cattle-
men's Associaton, has been
as a member of the UF/IFAS
Suwannee County Extension
Advisory Committee for sev-
eral years.
The Pouchers also served
for many years in the 1960s
and 1970s as 4-H club lead-
ers in Suwannee County.
They were also selected as


enjoying a hotdog and ham-
burger cookout at the pool at
Camp Weed and were all
ready for a swim.
Kind counselors lifted kids
out of their wheelchairs and
into the pool. Adults assisted
some kids on the diving
board and waded in the pool
with others.
Reuben Meadows, of Jack-
sonville, was under the pavil-
ion laughing with Chris
Cogle, the camp doctor who
works at the University of
Florida.
"I've been coming to camp
many years," said Meadows.
Cogle said Meadows
helped him write the camp
song a few years ago.
"The song's about the
French fries that are served at
Sthe dining hall," Cogle said.
Meadows said his favorite
thing about camp this year
was making a candle during
arts and crafts.

in a lasting positive impact in
those rural communities,"
said Bob Hochmuth, a
UF/IFAS multi-county agent

"Today, along with their own

STo provide the best wireless ser-
vice for businesses, residents and
visitors in Suwannee County, Veri-
zon Wireless has expanded its digi-
tal network here by constructing a
new ad% anced digital cell site near
the intersection of Interstate 10 and
US 90.
The ne\v site processes both
voice calls and wireless data traf-
fic-especially in the areas along In-
terstate 10 and US 90, west of Live


Oak-and represents the company's continuing investment
and growth in Florida,. Verizon Wireless spent more than
$300 million in the state during the past 18 months to fur-
ther expand and enhance its all-digital network, including a
new $25 million switching facility to handle calls through-.
S: Out North Florida.
This'aggressive network investment-now totaling more
than $1 billion in Florida and in excess of $30. billion na-
tionally during the past six years-ensures that Verizon Wire-
less will continue to stay ahead of growing demand for
wireless voice and data services like picture messaging and
Internet access throughout the state. Additionally, these im-
provements fortify the Verizon Wireless network to ensure
operations during.circumstances such as the hurricane sea-
sons of 2004 and 2005.
The Verizon Wireless network in Florida withstood the
impact of eight hurricanes in 2004 and 2005. In Florida,
more than. 80 percent of all Verizon Wireless sites have
V. yk their own back-up generator-in addition to battery power-to
. '{ keep the network running even when the power supply is
interrupted.
"This new site in Suwannee County can help improve
public safety in many emergency situations," said Mike
Lanman, Florida region president for Verizon Wireless.
"But it also allows us to meet the growing voice and data
needs of businesses and consumers here on a daily basis."
,.',' About Verizon Wireless: Verizon Wireless owns
and operates the nation's most reliable wireless
network, serving 53 million voice and data cus-
tomers. Headquartered in Basking Ridge, N.J.,
i Verizon Wireless is a joint venture of Verizon Corn-
munications (NYSE:VZ) and Vodafone (NYSE and

FWC offers

unique hunting

opportunities
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is offering sportsmen some unique
hunting opportunities for the com-
ing season.
The FWC is providing sportsmen
mobility-impaired hunts, supervised
youth hunts, family hunts, quail
hunts and track vehicle and airboat
hunts on selected wildlife manage-
ment areas (WMAs).
Worksheets are available at FWC
regional offices and on-line at
MyFWC.com/hunting under "Lim-
ited Entry Hunts." The period for
submitting application- to be in-
cluded in the random drawings be-
gins 10 a.m. (EDT) June 20 until
July 7. Applications may he submit-
ted through the Internet, at tax col-
lectors' offices or at any license
agent. Applications are no longer
accepted by mail.
Mobility-impaired hunts are for
persons who require special equip-
ment. These hunts are not intended
for hunters who have a Florida Dis-
abled Person Hunting and Fishing
Certificate, but rather those who are
permanently confined to a wheel-
chair, persons who require the use
of mechanical aids (crutches and
walkers) to walk or those with
complete single-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two WMAs
in the North Central Region (Camp
Blanding and Andrews) offer op-
portunities for non-hunting adults
to supervise young hunters on pub-
lic hunting areas where the number
of hunters and the hunting areas are
rigidly controlled to provide an op-
timum learning experience and
maximum safety. These hunts are
popular, and the number of appli-
cants exceeds the number of spaces
available each year.
The new Lafayette Creek WMA
as well as Matanzas, Andrews,
Devil's Hammock and Dinner Is-
land WMAs will offer family hunts
this year. Applicants age 18 or older
may apply for a permit. The permit
holder .is required to bring one to
two children ages 8-15. Unlike the
youth hunt, the family hunt allows
the adult supervisor to hunt with
the children,-
A quota hunt permit will be re-
quired to hunt quail on the Black-
water WMA Hutton Unit and
Blackwater Field Trial Area in the
Northwest Region. There are seven
two-day hunts available on the Hut-
ton Unit and two four-day hunts on
the Field Trial Area. The quota is
two groups per hunt on the Hutton
Unit and three groups per hunt on
the Field Trial Area. A group may
consist of up to three hunters.
Shooting hours end at 3 p.m., and
the bag limit is 12 quail per group
per day.

Apply for gator hunt


permit

It's 9:15 p.m., and
you're on an airboat with
your best hunting buddy
on a pleasant summer
night. You've already
watched the sunset while
you and your friend
quickly readied your
hunting gear to the
lulling sound of pig frogs
which seems to grow in-
creasingly louder with
the coming of night. It's
now gotten just dark
enough to use the QBeam
to spot the big, bright red-
glowing eyes of-a huge
bull gator.
How cool would it be to
harpoon one of these
beasts and then have it
tow your boat all over the
lake as you hang on with
all your might? Since
1988, the FWC has offered
hunters this exact oppor-
tunity by taking part in its
annual statewide alliga-
tor harvest. These special


ts now


hunts provide a thrilling,
hands-on hunting adven-
ture unlike any other you
could imagine.
At its February com-
mission meeting, the
FWC decided to extend
the alligator hunting sea-
son to give hunters more
flexibility in scheduling
their hunts. This year, the
season will be twice as
long as last year and will
span 11 consecutive
weeks from Aug. 15
through Nov. 1. You can
choose among four one-
week quota periods at the
beginning of the season
and also hunt the remain-
ing seven-week "open"
season which runs Sept.
12-Nov. 1.
Another positive
change this year is
hunters can now pur-
chase additional permits
if they're available. But,
only one permit may be


purchased per trans-
action.
More than 4,000
alligator harvest
permits will be
available on a first-
come, first-served
basis beginning 10
- a.m. (EDT) June 15.
You may buy them
at any tax collector's
office, license agent, at
MyFWC.com/license or
by calling toll-free-888
HUNT FLORIDA from
anywhere within the
-United States or Canada.
The cost for the alligator
trapping license and .the
two necessary hide vali-
dation tags is $272 for
Florida residents, and
$1,022 for nonresidents.
Additional permits 'cost
only $62 for instate and
out-of states alike. Each
permit allows you to take,
two alligators from
whichever county or
lake/river harvest area
you applied for. Hunters
must be at least 18 years
old by opening day on
Aug., 15 to purchase one,
and no other hunting li-
cense or permits are re-
quired.
Legal hunting hours
during these night-only
hunts is one-half hour be-
fore sunset to one-half
hour after sunrise.
Hunters may take alli-
gators using hand-held


snares, harpoons, gigs or
snatch hooks. Or, you can
choose to use projectiles
that are attached to re-
straining lines and shot
from a speargun, cross-
bow or bow. Hand-
thrown spears attached to
restraining lines also can
be used.
Bang sticks are then
used to finish the hunt
once the gator is secured
to the restraining line and
up close enough to the
boat.
But, if you'd rather as-
sist a friend who's a li-
censed trapper, you can
pay just $52 for an alliga-
tor. trapping- "agent" li-
cense. You don't even
have to be 18 to buy one
of them. This license al-
lows you to take alliga-
tors, but only when in the
presence of your friend.
If you think you're up
to the challenge and
you'd like to give gator
hunting a try but you're
not sure what all's in-
volved-not to worry. The
FWC offers a free, three-
hour training program
throughout the state to
teach the rules and regu-
lations of these unique
hunts. You don't have to
attend, but if you've nev-
er been gator hunting, I'd
recommend going.'
Courses will be offered
in July and August,. and

Commission (FWC) Ex-

Approval took place
Wednesday in response
to concerns of the public

The new policy will

was a radar technician. In
reality, he played tennis for
the Air Force.
After the Air Force,
Palmer went to Palm
Beach, home of the rich and
shameless, to become a ten-
nis doctor. Palmer doctored'
the games of .tennis pros
from all over the world.
"In good players you
could see in four or five
balls what they were doing
wrong," Palmer said. "In
another four or five, they'd
have it fixed. That's how
great they were."

Alaskan Highway one year,
he stopped in Suwannee

that said river front lots for

bought one and started trav-
eling up here from Palm
Beach on the weekends.
When the South Florida
rat race became too much
for him, he moved in for
good and started his tennis
camps.
"I enjoy the kids," Palmer
said. "They're a lot of fun.

This interest in civiliza-
tion and being civil led
Palmer to write a book. In
Search of Honor came out a
year ago. Palmer self-pub-
lished his book, which is
the first in a proposed
three-part series.
Palmer said he is interest-
ed in philosophy, natural
law, civilization and eco-
nomics. He likes how they
are all tied together and
how it's possible for civi-
lization to exist.
"Without civilization,
nothing would work,"
Palmer said. "Commerce is
the bedrock .of society."
Palmer 'said the purpose
of his book is to teach peo-
ple how to reach their high-
er self. "Problems are
gifts," Palmer said. "They
help you to grow as a per-
son."


were working boating
safety .around the
mouth of the Suwan-
nee River. A small 14-
foot jon boat was ob-
served returning from
the Gulf. A routine
boating safety check
was performed and
both individuals told
the officers they had
hot caught any fish. An
oversized redfish was
discovered under the
seat of one of the indi-
.viduals. Both individu-
als told thd officers
they were aware of the
rules concerning red-
fish. One citation was
issued by Ayers.


In Search of Honor has
been used as a teaching
guide by the Blake School
in a philosophy, course.
Palmer went to speak to the
kids in the class twice last
year.
.Palmer and his long-time
companion and helper, Pam
Sherburne, still live on the
river. They met when Sher-
burne took tennis lessons
from him in 1975.
"I saw him hit a volley,
and I said, 'I have to have
that man,"' Sherburne
joked.
Palmer has no plans to
retire from teaching tennis.
"I got to thinkirig about
how long I'm going to be
on the court," Palmer said.
"I'm in the fifth set of my
life. I'm not going to win it,
I'm just not going to give
up."

An account is given of a king
in the Bible who was at death's
door. Therefore he sent one of his
men, Hazael, to search out the
man ofGod-to see ifhe would re-
cover. Elisha told Hazael that the
king would recover "but that he
shall surely die." But he mourn-
fully proceeded to tell Hazael
that God had revealed to him that
he would be the next king. In or-
der to become king he would kill
the current king. Hazael went
back to the king who asked him
what the Man of God said. Haz-
ael told the king, "He told me
that thou shouldest recover," (II
Kings 8:7-15). Hazael only told
the king a HALF TRUTH!

Massachusetts gay activists export marriage


amendment intimidation website into Florida


Pro-gay Jacksonville
"Church" sponsors Website
Wwhich publishes home ad-
dresses of voters who signed
Florida4Marriage.org petitions

On Monday, June 12 gay
activist leaders in the state of
Massachusetts working with
a small pro-gay church in
Jacksonville, FL launched a
website which attempts to list


the residential home address-
es of all the voters who
signed the petition of the
Florida Marriage Protection
Amendment by
Florida4Marriage.org to de-
fine marriage between one
man and a one woman.
The "Christ Church of
Peace" incorporated in 2001
appears to be a small group
of about 60 supporters locat-


ed in Jacksonville Florida that
is taking responsibility for the
w e b s i t e
www.KnowThyNeighbor.or
g/florida/ which lists peti-
tion signers in 40 of the 67
counties. In March of this
year, the gay rights group
Equality Florida also opened
an office in Jacksonville.
The founder of the
"KnowThyNeighbor.org"


website franchise is Tom
Lang, a gay activist married
to a man under Massachu-


will try and go to other states
with this idea.
The website calls itself a


setts law. On his website, "ministry of the church",
Lang states that petition dri- claiming its purpose is to
ves like the one Florida4Mar- "initiate an open and mean-


riage.org sponsors are "an act
of violence against the gay
community." Other than
Massachusetts, Florida is the
only other state listed on the
main website which claims it


ingful conversation" and
"check for possible fraud".
This statement is ironic be-
cause homosexual activists
around the. country have not


soned dialogue and fair
play. To the contrary, many
pro family leaders argue that
an integral part of the gay
agenda is to intimidate and
silence anyone who disagrees
with them. Some believe the
site could actually help mar-
riage amendment supporters
find out wll'ch of their neigh-

bors have not yet signed the
petition and then hand deliv-
er one.
John Stemberger, State
Chairman of Florida4Mar-
riage.org said "This is a sad
and desperate tactic by gay
activists in Massachusetts to
reach into the sunshine state
and try and intimidate a half
million Florida voters that
signed the Florida Marriage
Protection Amendment."


Stemberger said, "Their web-
site was a bad idea in Mass.
and it. is an even worse idea
in conservative Florida. I
predict this will backfire and
will further motivate Florida
citizens to finish the job and
then head to the 2008 elec-
tion." Stemberger also stated,
"Imagine what would hap-
pen if a conservative church
group posted online the
home address of every gay-
identified citizen in Florida?
It would be decried as a


witch hunt and an un-Christ-
ian hateful attempt to mark
gays like pedophiles... This
appears to be the only tactic
available to a small group of
extremists who are losing in
the market place of ideas of
our representative democra-
cy. i
Florida4Marriage.org is
pushing forward this sum-
mer with its campaign to col-
lect the remaining number of
petitions needed to get the
amendment on the ballot in


2008- which is about
120,000 more needed to date.
Churches supporting the ef-
fort are highly encouraged to
do one final collection effort
during services by the end of
July. Visit
www.Florida4Marriage.org
for more information.
Florida Family Action is a
new cultural action organiza-
tion that is completely sepa-
rate from the Florida Family
Policy Council, legally. It has
been created by separating


out of Florida Family Policy
Council those activities
which constitute lobbying
under the IRS code so that
they can be expanded, in
scope. It will provide a plat-
form for informing, inspiring
and rallying those who care
-deeply about the family to
greater involvement in the
moral, cultural and 'political
issues that threaten pur state.
Florida Family Action will
give our team much greater
freedom to take our views to


the public square, where the
great debate over culture,
rights, freedom and values is
taking place, and allow us to
ask people to take specific ac-
tions such as calling senators
and congressmen to pass im-
portant, family-friendly leg-
islation. The bottom line is
we can be more effective in
fighting for the Florida Mar-
riage Protection Amendment
and against judicial tyranny
among other issues with this
new lobbying organization.

One thing that everyone has in common
is that we all have, or have had, a father.
Fathers should be considered as a gift
from (God and a reflection of His
heavenly Ioe for us. Not too mian,'y years
ago, it was only the father who was out
\or\king to support his family while the
mother w\as home hearing for their
children and the needs o(f their home.
Today, many fathers and mothers share
the many different aspects of raising a
family, including working outside of the
home, which is good because it seems
that fathers today are more involved
with their children and their actiMities.
Fathers who love, support, and
encourage their children are helping to
develop a healthy family, and it is
essential that they never discourage
their children from confiding in them
with their problems. Fathers who spend
time with their families seem to be
more at peace with themselves, and
families that get along well in good
times are most often better able to
handle the bad times. It is easy to
become a father, but quite difficult to
become a good father, and a good father
who loves his family is truly a blessing
from God.


I will be a father to you, and you will
be My sons and
daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

General Federation of Women's Clubs holds District 3 Arts Festival


Several women from the
GFWC Woman's Club of
Live Oak traveled to Perry
for the Florida Federation
of Women's Club District 3
Arts and Crafts Festival
held at the Perry Woman's
Club clubhouse on Feb. 18.
Other District 3 Woman's
Clubs represented were:
The Branford Woman's
Club, Capital City
Woman's Club, Jasper
Woman's Club, Perry
Woman's Club, Madison
Woman's Club,, The
Woman's Club of Tallahas-
see and the Tallahassee Ju-
nior Woman's Club and
several GFWC Junior
Woman's Clubs.
District 3 Director Beth
Hamilton presided over the
business meeting. The de-
votional was given by Dis-
trict 3 Chaplain Rebecca
Shaner. District 3 Junior Di-
rector Renee Strickland led
the women in the Pledge of
Allegiance.
I GFWC Woman's Club of
Live Oak members Dawn,
Strickland, Nell Moores,


Doris Van Jahnke, Candace
Walker, Erie Lane, Eileen
Box, Karen Jackowski,
Lynn Rutherford, Debbie
Rice and Patt Slaughter en-
tered their art work and
crafts. There were a total of
59 entries submitted by
these women. Many of the
entries received ribbons for
their work.
. All first place winners
are eligible to enter, their
items in the. FFWC State
Arts and Crafts competi-
tion to be held at the FFWC
State Convention -to be
held on May 19-21 in Or-
lando.
During the morning
break all members had an'
opportunity to vote for
their favorite entry for the
"Peoples' Choice Awards."
Each attending woman
was also encouraged to
show their own creative
abilities by making book-
marks with scraps of. col-
ored paper in various sizes
and shapes provided for
them which they glued
onto strips of paper.


Doris Lepoma, a member
of the Perry Woman's Club,
entertained the ladies by
performing a Hawaiian
dance. She was dressed in
traditional Hawaiian dress.
Following lunch, District
3 Arts Chairman Pat
Thomas announced the
winners. The "Peoples'
Choice Award for Art" was
awarded to Shirley Joyce of
the GFWC Woman's Club'
of Tallahassee. The Peo-
ple's Choice Award for
crafts was awarded to He-
len McCain of the GFWC
Woman's Club of Madison.
Before the meeting ended
each club president was
given a one minute "brag"
time to speak about the
projects and events taking
place in their club. It was
very evident the FFWC
clubs throughout the dis-
trict are volunteering their
services in their communi-
ties producing- "Smiles for
All Reasons an Seasons" in
District 3.

How businesses can prepare
(ARA) Experts are
predicting another bad
/ hurricane season this year, with
an above average number of
severe storms and hurricanes.
During storm season, disruption
of business is almost inevitable,
S. including the loss of phone
service. When phones go down,
business stops.
S- "Few businesses make the
Necessary preparations for the
complete and total loss of
telephone service," says
Jonathan Spira, chief analyst at
,, Basex, a New York-based


for hurricane phone outages


research and consulting firm
and author of "Managing the
Knowledge Workforce." "hIn
today's global economy, where
customers come from all over
the world, the ability to
maintain business
communications even in
hurricane-ravaged areas is
essential. Having a
telecommunications backup
solution in place is the most
important step a company can
take for business continuity."
In the case of one Florida
business, the company narrowly


escaped disaster in October
2005 when Hurricane Wilma
made landfall.
"Our phone system is the
lifeblood of our business," said
Cheryl Arscott, president of
Reservation Services
International (RSI), based in
Fort Lauderdale. The company
provides booking services for
scuba diving companies

phone system failed. Luckily,
we had completed installation
of a remote backup phone
system just one day before the
hurricane struck."
Although RSI's power was
out for ten days, the company
continued to communicate with
its customers thanks to a low-
cost remote backup phone
service provided by Virtual
PBX, Inc. of San Jose, Calif.
Virtual PBX offers a "hosted"
phone service, meaning that the
telephone equipment is housed
remotely, outside the area of the
natural disaster.
When telephone calls came
in for RSI, the Virtual PBX
Service automatically routed
the calls to alternate phone lines
for RSI employees, such as to
cell phones, home phones and
temporary offices. Employees
could even take calls from
shelters or the homes of
relatives where they waited for
things to get back to normal.
Paul Hammond, CEO of
Virtual PBX, has seen his fair
share of businesses harmed by
hurricanes, tornados and other
natural disasters. Hammond.
offers the following advice to
businesses looking to protect
their phone systems against
natural disaster:
Telecommunications Disaster
Preparedness Tips for Business'
Owners:
1. Determine if your phone
system is disaster-proof. If your
phone system relies on
electricity or the availability of
local phone service, it is not
disaster-proof
2. Build redundancy into
your phone system. After a
natural disaster, telephone lines
may be destroyed and cell
phone coverage may lie spotty.
Your phone system should be
able to integrate both landline
telephones and cell phones for
added redundancy and
availability
3. Develop a contingency
plan to take your office
"virtual." Develop a written
contingency plan and share it
with your employees so that if
office phones are unavailable,
your employees can take calls
from home or from phones
outside the area of the disaster.
Make sure your phone system
can automatically route calls to
the proper employees in the
proper location.
4. Establish an emergency
"hot-line." A remotely hosted
emergency hot-line can be set
up outside your normal phone
system that will allow
employees to communicate
even if your office is closed or
destroyed. You can coordinate
business resumption and help
workers and their families
know what is happening
through posted messages or live
calls.
5. Implement a backup phone
system. New backup phone'
services are available, such as
the PBX Parachute service from
Virtual PBX, which provides
real-time backup to as many as
100,000 phone extensions.
6. Test your disaster
preparedness. Once you have a
backup system in place, test it.
If you are using a hosted PBX
system as your backup, turn off
the power to your primary
phone system and make sure
that the hosted PBX system
properly activates.
7. Consider using a hosted
phone system as your primary
phone system. Hosted phone
systems are largely immune to
natural disasters, because they
don't require on-the-premises
