'A most entertaining Senate race looms in California
Cindy Sheehan, who seems to have become something of an
ambassador without portfolio to countries that don't like us, has
said she will run tbr Dianne Feinstein's US Senate seat from
.alifornia if Senator Feinstein fails to join in an effort to6demiand
3hat President Bush immediately and without further hesitation
evacuates all of our troops from Iraq.
Cindy said this during a junket to Venezuela, where she
appeared on stage along with newly-elected Marxist President
Iugo Chavez, whose circle of friends include Fidel Castro and
Saddam Hussein, and declared that she was also considering once
:again "pitching a tent" near President George W. Bush's Texas
Now,. get this: Chavez remarked that he would sort of like to set
pip a tent there, too. Yeah, right. Texans might be tolerant enough
So let some left-wing flake like Cindy Sheehan do her thing, but a
banana republic despot setting up shop near the President's ranch?
they'dd send Chavez back home regretting that he had ventured any
further north than Mexico without getting a green card.
Meanwhile, Senator Feinstein, who would have been smart to
"imply ignore Cindy's latest effort to keep her name in the news,
responded through her campaign manager that she, does not
Support President Bush, that she had been misled by the
Information she had been fed by the administration when she voted
go authorize military action in Iraq (the standard liberal cop-out),
|but she thought that immediate withdrawal would be "unwork-
tble." Not exactly a gem of wisdom by anyone who passed an 8th
grade'course in American government, but not bad for a liberal
feminist from California.
: So much for the background, now comes the fun part. Let's
',uppose Feinstein sticks to her guns, pathetic paint-ball launchers
though they might be, and remains supportive of the war effort, at
least to the extent of not joining the likes of Pennsylvania
congressman John Murtha in demanding an immediate troop
Next, let's suppose that Cindy Sheehan, feeling that the senator
has violated her (Cindy's) "moral authority" as the only mother to
have lost a son in any war our nation has ever fought, gets some'
-financial backing and decides to challenge Dianne Feinstein in
.California's Democratic primary.
All right, who would back her? Why not George Soros? If
,Cindy can position herself to the left of a liberal incumbent, why
-wouldn't he? Soros has far more than enough money to underwrite
a primary election campaign in California, and if he could use it to
help bring about a major US foreign policy defeat, he'd consider it
moneyy well spent. :
Let us also not forget Cindy Sheehan's new-found friend, Hugo
.Chavez. Venezuela's oil exports have. left him with a lot of
working capital, and the two of them seemed quite enamored of
each other during her recent visit. i
SThe Democratic Party, of course, has better sense than to throw
,any significant support to someone trying to unseat an incumbent
:who has performed as well as Senator Feinstein. Cindy Sheehan
-"has done fairly well as an anti-Bush agitator, but sensible
-Democrats must shudder at the very thought of her representing the
.:party in the United States Senate. One term Illinois Senator Carol
:,Moseley Braun was the epitome of statesmanship by comparison.
But. who knows? A Cindy Sheehan vs. Dianne Feinstein
;,contest could happen, and I've got to think that this cat-fight would
"really be fiunto watch.

Letter to the Editor
RE: Tri-County Hospital in Chiefland
My husband and I very strongly support having a small hospital
close to home. We realize living in a rural area, everything is
spread out and there is always travel involved when you go
ANYWHERE. A local facility is SO necessary for EMERGENCY
care. Any medical personnel can tell you that the first HOUR is
the most critical to get the help needed, but THAT'S HOW LONG
IT TAKES TO GET TO THE NEAREST HOSPITAL, whether in
Gainesville, Williston or Perry.
One afternoon four years ago, my allergies flared up, then a
terrible asthma attack erupted. I used my prescribed medication on
hand. I did not want to disturb my husband during the night to
drive me ALL THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL, I thought I
could get my asthma under control as I always did in the past, but
it was more severe than I thought and my medication was not
The sun was barely rising when my husband noticed I hadn't
slept all night...actually, I was afraid I would not wake up if I went
to sleep. Immediately, we found a Shands UF clinic in Gilchrist
County. They initially treated me, then sent me to Chiefland for
chest x-rays, then I had to transport the x-rays back to the clinic in
Gilchrist County because there was no doctor available to read my
films in Chiefland. The doctor at the clinic informed me I had bi-
lateral pneumonia and I needed to go the hospital NOW! Only
problem was that when 911 was called, both ambulances were out
on calls already. My husband then took me to Shands Hospital in
his truck, exceeding all speed limits, to get me the relief I so
If there was a hospital to go to in Chiefland, I would have gone
in the night and would have been spared the fear of dying that
night. The asthma treatment, xrrays, blood-gas test, observations
ALL could have been done at ONE facility. No one should ever
have to go through something like this? I certainly don't want to

Letter To The Editor
January 29, 2006
A letter to the editor of the Times, written by Mr. Breer stated
that the "commissioners spent time investigating the complex
issues of the coal power plant and weight the pros and cons before
coming to a decision."
Who really researched the issues?
Do we have 50,000 people ready to trample our County
Franklin. County the net ban was a petition presented to the
state for a statewide referendum on the ballot, the entire state
voted. Did the fishermen come out and state their case? I don't
We are asking for a county vote to protect, or destroy, our
county. The people of Hamilton County had their say at the polls
for the fronton that was built there. A nice clean business!
Mr. Breer also stated (at a county commissioners meeting)
there would be 1500 jobs over 5 years, and 180 permanent jobs.
At a subsequent meeting the numbers were revised to 1300 and
Now in the current issue of Florida Trend, Mr. Gunter states
there will be 1234 jobs over 4 years.
Construction has now decreased by 1 year not 5 years worth
of money flowing.
Now isn't that amazing in less than 6 months time the number
of jobs to build the plant has been reduced by 266 jobs. Behind
what door is the next number? To further quote the magazine
"The projected 180 permanent jobs would pay an average of
$55,400, more than twice Taylor's current average wage of
REALLY! Please, tell me what positions will command this
salary? But according to what is said all 180 jobs will, so I guess
JEA is a very generous employer paying the manager/supervisor
right on down to the clerk or janitbrial positions the same salary.
In the same magazine is an article about SeaStrike Boats
reopening in the county. It is employing 100 people NOW (or at
least within the year). The lucky 180 to be employed by JEA
have to wait till 2012. What are they doing in the mean time, but
more importantly where will they come from?
Remember folks; the four power suppliers looking to diversify
fuel sources away from natural gas and oil because of soaring
prices and supply uncertainties are Jacksonville Electric, The City
of Tallahassee, Florida Municipal Power Agency (Orlando) and
Reedy Creek Improvement District (Disney World). Isn't that

physically able to drive a

the names of people to serve
on juries from people who
are licensed to drive. He is
very interested in the
judicial process, and would
like the opportunity of
serving on a jury some day.

just because someone
doesn't have a driver
license, they are not on the
list of people who can be
chosen to serve on a jury.

For My Daddy
JAMES ALFORD CREWS
February 3, 1931 July 10, 2004
Daddy it has almost been 2 years since you left me -
your baby girl
And that opened my eyes and I realized
I was alone in a big world.
The day you went home it broke my heart.
But nothing, Daddy, will ever keep us apart.
Your picture is on my wall today
And right there until II die it will stay.
Sometimes you would cry and you would laugh and
sometimes you would just sit there and wonder
why the history channel wasn't good this week;
and how the Braves should stay on their feet
Those were thoughts you often would ponder.
Daddy, I miss you so much with each passing day,
I get so excited though when I see your face.
In a picture is where I see it most
SAnd I feel like making a toast.
"here's to my Daddy, wasn't he grand"
That's right father, I am your biggest fan.
'You sometimes got mad when Chad would call you
::., The Hulk or the Fonze, but you always smiled.
It's been so very long since I saw that smile,
And I know I won't see it again for a while.
I went and visited your grave yesterday,
While the rain and wind was going every which way.
I know you are not in there underground,
: You're at your new home with the Lord looking down. ...
Sometimes, Daddy, I feel like reality is knocking at mry door.
: Because, people's true feelings are showing more & more.
bMama, is trying so hard and her best not to grieve so very much.
But, Daddy, it was 50 years and
she loyes you and misses-you a whole bunch.
I wrote this to you to let you know how I feel
and to tell you how much I miss you.
I love you with all my heart Daddy and I know you love me too.
"' The world is turning and changing every which way,
But this is for you......
SLove Forever & Always,
Leslie Jocelyn Crews

Come With Me
The Lord saw you
And a cure was not to be,
So He put his
arms around you:
"Come with me."
With tearful eyes,
we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away,
Although we loved
We could not make
A golden heart
A beautiful smile at rest,
God broke our hearts
He only takes the best.
It's lonesome here
We miss you so each day,
Our lives aren't the same
Since you went away.
When days are sad
We seem to hear
"Cheer up and carry on."
Each time we see
You seem .to smile and say,
"Don't cry, I'm in
,The Word Made
Continued from last week I, the
~od of man, say Jesus went into the
synagogu"e on 'ihe Sabbath (Luke
4016-17), and stood up to read
Wirse 17 says: "He opened the
book." It was the scroll of the
prophet Isaiah. He was reading
from, a scripture about Himself.
He, said; 'Today is this scripture
fulfilled". Let me speak to those
who think that the Bible is an old-
fashioned, out-dated book that we
hBr longer need The day of the
Lord is upon us, a day in which
this book will be opened anew by
Ml Son of God, a day in which the
618'Testament prophecies -will be
fulfilled. Yes, the many-
nirmbered company of the sons of
God will take te Book out of the
hands of the religious leaders, and
stand up with the truth that will
bring light and life to creation.. I,
the son obtman, say Verse 28 says,
*(.t, all, those in the synagogue
were filled with wrath and, rage
tkieni they heard His word. I know
He was rejected by the system of
religion in His 'day, and that the
same 'thing is happening to the
sons. 'But, His words of life still
prevailed. Truth cannot be
destroyed. The Book will come
alive'again and the voice of the cson
w Il be'heard. It was here on the-
:7 day, that they cast Him out of
the city and would have thrown
.J-Iim over a cliff, but He passed
4tiArough their midst and went on
'iis vlay. So shall be the conflict
,iS the Day of the Lord, religion
l trying to cast out the Son and
it. sonship message. But, God's
TD shall survive their wrath. 1,
tjie son of man, say from here
t s went to Cayemaum and on
0 Sabbath day He entered the
ynagogue and began to teach with
authority. Have you enjoyed the
i'Jine revelation God has been
aOming in these last days? Have
Oyou appreciated the authority by
h&ich men of God have spoken?
tet me assure you that now in the
I'Z day there will be a word of
,,authonty such as we have never
peienced. There will be
teaching by divine revelation on
tglie Kingdom of God that will stun
Ad amaze everyone. Mark 1:22
.i.ys: "And they were astonished at
,'iQ&s doctrine: for he taught them as
0o1ie that had authority, and not as
.1Ie scribes." I, the son of man, say
f6- was only afler the children of
ir ael came out of Babylonian
etivity (Nehemiah 8) that men
1 gan to teach the Book with
understanding. All during their
tJ *e in captivity, for 70 years, they
0d the prophecies of Isaiah and
mahand the Law of Moses.
St, they did not understand them.
wy from Babylon, they had the
derstanding to hear the word of
tLord. Nehemiah 8:7 says that
of God caused the people to
derstand the law of God. Verse
says that this was happening on
e first day of the 7 month, the

missed a few meetings because of health issues. Today though,
that is not the point. Several of our officers have resigned for
various reasons. Some are probably legitimate and some are hurt
ego's or disagreement with another officer. I only have one answer

To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United Sates of America; to
maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent

and nation; to combat the autocracies of both the classes and the masses; to make

Two Times The Fun!
GAINESVILLE In the topsy-turvy world of
college basketball upsets, holding on to your pecking- ."
order perch lately has been harder than keeping your 1 '
place in line at the Post Office while you've stepped
away to get a 2-cent stamp.

mighty to stumble as No. I ranked Duke got bumped
off one night and No. 2 Florida the next just two of
several Top 25 ranked teams that bought it. And the
dominoes effect seemed to take hold.
Early season college basketball rankings, of
course, mean about as much as-mattress tags that
threatened jail sentences if they are removed, since there is
something called "March Madness" that decides the true
So a number of imposters may emerge early in the year.
What we've been trying to figure about Billy Donovan's Florida
team, however, is whether they were PRE-tenders or CON-tenders
as they rolled up a 17-0 record and moved to second in the nation.
As a matter of fact, when the Gators tipped off against Tennessee
Saturday night a week ago, they could have emerged as the top-
ranked team in America with a victory. Instead, they were upset
by Tennessee, 80-76. Four nights later they traveled to Columbia,
S.C. and might as well have stayed on the plane, because they
were clipped by South Carolina, 68-62 and needed to rally just
to make it close.
Just what Donovan had been telling the media all along
was true: That Florida didn't deserve to be ranked that high and
hadn't played anybody that tough to date.
So as the Gators took the floor Saturday afternoon for a
game in which they were favored by nine points over Vanderbilt,
plenty of questions about them buzzed around the corridors of the
Especially after Vanderbilt took an 11-point lead in the
first half. The Gators appeared to be trouble as they committed
seven first-half turnovers and shot a paltry 43 per cent luck)' to
be trailing only by three, 38-35.
One of Donovan's top players, Corey Brewer, couldn't
even start after suffering an ankle injury and making it worse by
trying to play on it in Knoxville and Columbia. He finally limped
on the court five minutes into the game and didn't score but three
points in his 17 minutes.
Instead, freshman Walter Hodge started in Donovan's
three-guard offense and played admirably, scoring nine points. "I
have a lot of respect for Corey after what he did," Donovan said
after the game. "We had a meeting this morning and he told me he
didn't think he could play 100 per cent and was afraid he would
'hurt the team. Even though he has started every game since
coming here and had a long string that would be broken. That
shows a lot of character."
Brewer did this after begging the coach to playing him in
the second half against Tennessee following a serious apkle

It was Al Horford, son of former Miami and NBA player
Tito Horford, who stepped up to deliver 16 points and grab 16
rebounds as Florida put on a torrid second-half shooting spree (62
percent) to rally for their 18th victory and a school record-tying
19th straight win to post an overall of 18-2.
The Gators turned it around after two straight road losses
that had broken up their 17-game winning
r- a.....:.- KS streak. They are currently on the quickest page
to win 20 in school history. Donovan was
pleased that Horford rallied after a poor, sleep-
walking showing against South Carolina.
When the rankings came out Sunday,
SFlorida was ranked No. 7 by the Associated
Press and No. 8 by USAToday/Coaches.
Donovan isn't a fan of being ranked high, but
the fact remains is that other teams come up
with new schemes because of their respect for
the lofty record. He likes the winning, but it
comes with a price.
"Teams are doing things against us that they've never
done before and it was because of the 17-0," Donovan admitted.
So adjustments are necessary on the spot.
The bad news is that these Gators are very young. It is also the
More bad news came in the form of an injury to
junior three-point specialist Lee Humprhey over the weekend. He
hurt his shoulder in a bicycle accident and will be out for up to
three weeks. With Kentucky coming up on Saturday, the Gators
will be tested -- and so will the patience of Billy Donovan..

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Steinhatchee Water Association Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above
Drinking Water Standards.
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers,
you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 01/10/06 show
that our system exceeds the standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts which
includes both Total Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids. The standard for Total Trihalomethanes is .080 mg/L. The
level of Total Trihalomethanes was found at .161 m&/L. The standard for HaloaceticAcids is .06a0mz. The level of
Haloacetic Acids was found at .69 mr/.
What should I do?
You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply.
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience
problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing Haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an
increased risk of getting cancer.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. However, some people
who drink water containing Disinfection Byproducts in excess of the MCL over many years may experience
. problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water and creates the
What is being done?
The Steinhatchee Water Association is working with our Engineers and the Department of Environmental Protection
to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving this issue within the next 12 months.

Have you ever heard the name Sylvester Graham? If you
listen to Little Known Facts radio show very much you have. You
know that he is the fellow who invented Graham Crackers, which
of course are named after him. But Sylvester wasn't just a
confection vendor, not even close! He was as close as you can get
to a complete and total health nut and radical in his day. Really!
Now he did and advocated some very strange things, like
sleeping every night with the Windows wide open, even in the dead
of winter. And by the way, he did this in New England, even
before they had indoor plumbing. Brrrr! I can't imagine. But old
Sylvester was a popular lecturer and author, and frequently went
around the country telling folks that eating meat would kill them
and white bread was just about the most deadly thing they could
put in their body. There are still some folks who feel that way,
Now the history books show pretty clearly that, for the most
part, the general public didn't buy what the good Dr. Graham was
selling. Oh, he had his followers all right, but the vast majority:
just thought that getting out of bed in the morning to a 15 degree,
below zero bedroom was not really the best thing for their health -
or their mood! And really, the established medical community felt
about the same way.
But there is one thing that Dr. Graham advocated and pushed at"
every opportunity that the mainstream doctors of the 1840s did
agree with, and we found written in an 1 18 edition of a medical
magazine. Something that pretty much we .ake for granted today,
and I'll bet you use. It was touted as one of the most effective
controls of disease in the coming four decades. Almost nobody
did it, but the medical community was sure getting on board with
it. We found long (and I mean long) dissertations in magazines,
and newspapers on how to use the device and the great and good'
effects of it. Newspapers of the day and medical experts were
telling the public that if they really wanted to live a healthier life,
this was essential. The public was skeptical to say the least.
Just didn't make a lot of sense at first. And besides, it was,
expensive: $8.00. That's what one cost in 1870. Eight dollars
could be considered a tidy sum back then. And of course you had
to find a place for it. It was bigger than a bread box, you know.
Here's an exact quote from the medical journal. "This may be;
used for all diseases of the head, for epilepsy, nervous complaints,
headache, melancholy, hypochondriasis, obstruction of the menses
and such complaints as arise there from, delirium, general debility
and more. Hmmm. Quite a cure all, wouldn't you say? That's
how it started as a cure and treatment for disease.
And I'll bet you didn't know that it was the same fellow who
invented Graham Crackers that brought this modem miracle cure
to the public, Sylvester Graham. But it was. And what was this
amazing product that was going to cure all the ills of mankind?
It's a Little Known Fact that it was not convenience, nor comfort,
but rather for the control of disease that people first stood up in the
bath.tub... and started taking showers!

RRMS Honors Arbor Day
Pictured above are students from the Ruth Rains Middle School
Environmental Class, planting shrubs at Anderson Elementary in honor
of Arbor Day. "
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Ruth Rains Middle School honored Arbor Day, Wednesday,
January 25th, by sending their student environmental cub to plant'
shrubs around the Anderson Elementary campus.
Instructor Art Wyckoff stated that we should all consider the
many benefits of adding trees,. shrubs and greenery to our
landscapes. The first, and most important, is that plants replenish
valuable oxygen to our environment and filter some impurities out,
giving us pure oxygen. Plants also help with soil erosion and help
keep soil from washing away into our rivers and steams, clogging
them with silt and muck. Trees and many houseplants help filter
out dust particles from the air, acting as air purifiers. Trees are
useful in providing shade,' helping to cool our surrounding
environment, saving energy and cutting down fuel bills. Trees are a
natural habitat for all kinds of animals. And trees and plants are
pleasing to the eye, adding beauty to our landscapes.
With all this in mind the middle schoolers, armed with shovels
and shrubs, planted a hedge around a fenced utility area. As the
shrubs grow they will help hid the cold look of metal and replace it
with soft greenery that will flower throughout the spring and
summer months. The students also did some cleanup work in the
Lantana beds that adorn either side 'of the walkway from the,
parking lot to the main entrance.
Anderson students and staff would like to thank theRRMS
students, Mr. Wyckoff and his wife Karen of A & K Nursery for
taking the time to help make their school grounds look'

Dixie Soil & Water Conservation
Host Tri-County Land Judging
B)y Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last Friday, January 27"' FFA members from the Levy and Gilchrist Counties met at the First
District Community Center in Dixie County for the annual Tri-County Land Judging Contest. The
Dixie County Soil & Water Conservation District sponsored the event this year.
After checking in the teams traveled down the road to the Oak Grove Dairy where members
would test their skills at reading the soils permeability, drainage capabilities, texture, and determine
whether or not there had been any erosion.
Alfred Jones from Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) noted that these contests are
conducted to give these "Future Farmers of America" (FFA) the knowledge of what type of land
tOiey may purchase in the future. It also gives them a history of past weather conditions such as
drought and flooding in the area.
, Helping with the grading and scoring were members from the Gilchrist and Cross City Division
O"Forestry, County Extension Agents, and the NRCS.
| Once everyone had their fill of BBQ, Paul Ridaught, Dixie Soil & Water Conservation
chairman started off the awards portion of the event by recognizing two special people, Ron
Plechocki of Oak Grove Dairy and Tommy Jones of the Suwannee River Resource Conservation &
levelopment for all their help with the contest. Then, for the moment they had all been waiting for,
ai~nouncement of the winners. Each county had a Jr. and Sr. Division as well as a High Individual
winner. Unfortunately there were no teams from Dixie County's FFA programs this year.
The Dixie Soil & Water Conservation would like to thank the following, for their generous
donations. Without them pitching in the lunch provided would not have been possible. They are Oak

Left to right are Kevin Gloves II, Kaycee Bush, and Janie Bray, January
Rotary Student Guests.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Janie Bray, daughter of James and Frances Bray of Old Town,
was one of three Rotary Student Guests for January 2006.
Janie spoke to the local Rotarians about the health education
program at Dixie County High School. As a student of Mrs. Betty
Davidson's class, Janie gave her Health Science teacher high
Janie feels the vocational class has been a tremendous asset to
students over the past ten years. Sixty students that took the course
continued their education, 23 receiving degrees in the health field,
business and teaching.
Students taking the course also have the opportunity to learn
hands-on, receiving their clinical hours at local doctor's offices,
Cross City Rehab and even the Shamrock Veterinarian Clinic.
They are able to live the job experience, helping others while
learning a trade.
Janie also spoke about the importance of parents being
involved in the child's' education. The combination of great
teachers like Mrs. Davidson, parental involvement and vocational
courses like Health Science, are in Janie's book, a win-win.
While Janie is passionate about her CNA Class and plans to
continue her education at Santa Fe Community College and then
transfer to UF, receiving her BA in Physical Therapy. She is
currently involved in HOSA, BETA, Spanish Club, is a teen
,trendsetter and member of the National Honor Society. She also
volunteers for Gilchrist County banquets, Sunday School and other
:church activities. Her hobbies include reading, swimming,
shopping, jogging and hanging out with family and friends.
The next speaker was Kaycee Lane Bush, daughter of Lorinda
"Elaine" Bush of Old Town. Kaycee spoke about Greek mythology
Kacie explained that most likely Greek mythology came out of
the primitive religions of the people of Crete who believed that all
natural objects had spirits and some objects had magical powers.
These beliefs developed over the years into legends in which
.involved natural objects, animals and gods that resembled humans.
The most famous of those Greek Gods are Zeus, Hera,
Hephaestus, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Demeter, Aphrodite, Hesita,
Hermes, and Poseidon. They were the gods of the heavens, earth
Kaycee noted that Greek mythology emphasized the
weaknesses of humans and were dependent on the good will of the
gods, who they believe controlled all aspects of nature.
i The myths and stories of these Gods continue to fascinate us
,today, especially history buffs like Kaycee.
1 Besides history, Kaycee loves to read, scrapbook and hang out
,. ith her friends. She is involved in the BETA and Spanish Clubs
fnd is a member of the National Honor Society. Kaycee also
,volunteers for the Dixie County Little League.
iShe plans on attending Lake City Community College and then
,transfer to a-university. Kaycee doesn't have a definite major in
tmrid, but hopes to enter into a career that involved helping people.
The last Rotary Student Guests was Harold Kevin Glover, II,
son of Theresa Smith of Old Town. Kevin spoke about world
Kevin noted that the world's population has sky-rocked in the
last few decades due in part to the advancement in the medical
field. People are living much longer, however, the population
explosion has caused an increased demand for food.
Kevin also noted that we, here in the United States, are truly
fortunate that we live in a country where the shortage of food is not
a concern. Unfortunately that is not the case in other countries.
Each day 30,000 children die of starvation and disease associated
with the lack of that food. That is about 210,000 children each
week, 1,250 each hour. Fewer than 11 million will die before their
He went on to report about the various groups such as the
World Food Program, Bread for the World Institute Inc.,
Children's Hunger Fund Food For The Poor, and the Rotary Clubs
International, to name a few. 42 percent of Americans donated
money to non-profit groups last year, and 33 percent gave time to
help the poor and starving.
Kevin talked about the. scientists' role in the fight against
hunger. Their work on genetically engineered seeds that will
produce bigger, more reliable crops that are nutrition-enhanced
may be our key to success in the fight against hunger, saving
millions if not billion of lives, no matter what country they are
Kevin says his favorite subject is Drafting; his hobbies are
reading, music, playing video games, basic programming,
computer building and maintenance and painting. He is active in
the BETA club, Bears Marching Band, High-Q and member of the
National Honors Society.
We applauded each one of these three young people for their
hard work and dedication and wish them well in all their future

PASTOR JIM HURST
Over the past two-years Pastor Hurst has written 22 books.
Eighteen are now in print and available. Each week we will
feature one of these books in the Advocate. They can be
purchased over our website at: www.jimhurst.org or at Calvary
Temple Church. This weeks book is titled "God s Prophetic
Timetable." This was my first book and is 186 pages in length.
Subject matter deals with our leaving our past behind as we
pursue our God given destiny in Christ. None of us were
designed by God to remain in one place forever, but to move
from glory to glory -- from level to level in Christ. This cannot be
done until we resolve to leave our past behind. This book retails
for $13.99 in the bookstore. With this article the cost will be only
$10.00. Chapter titles include: We Are All Accountable -- We
Have Entered Into A New Season -- Let It Go -- Let The Dead
Bury The Dead -- There Is A River -- plus much more. Get your
