Law Enforcement officials begin to work the scene where the body of a man was found floating at the
Turner Point Landing boat ramp last Sunday, March 11.
By Terri Langford
Last Sunday, March 11, the Dixie County Sheriff's Office
(DCSO) received a call at approximately 10:30 a.m. about a body
found floating in the Suwannee River at Turner Point Landing
North of Old Town. Deputies arrived on the scene and
immediately secured the area while officers from the Florida
1 Wildlife Commission (FWC) assisted in securing the waterway.
Officers were able to recover the body of a white male, thought
to be in his late forties, with extensive injuries to the head and
chest area.
The victim was

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Scene
technicians (FDLE) arrived on scene at approximately 2:30 P.M.
with the Mobile Crime Scene Unit and assisted local
investigators in processing the crime scene. The Dixie County
Dive Team was called in to search the water around the boat
ramp for evidence that would help with the identification of the
victim, but the search proved to be fruitless.

A new approach to medical malpractice?
There was a time when the term, "botched abortion" referred t
a:procedure that left the woman injured, or maybe even dead. Yo
probably didn't hear much about that sort of thing, but that'
because the mainstream media, being what might be termed th
public relations arm of the "pro-choice" agenda, doesn't want th
abortion industry to suffer from any bad press.
That's why we didn't hear much about a woman who had a
abortion at a north Florida clinic, was released soon afterward an
bled to death before she got home. Major malpractice suits arise ou
.of botched breast implants, but this abortion clinic fatality didn'
seem to rate much attention, nor have countless others that hav
cropped up in the 34 years since the Supreme Court found
"'penumbra" (a term normally used to define shadows) in th
Constitution that legalized abortion.
You probably didn't hear about this botched abortion, either, a
it didn't get much exposure despite the fact that it was an entire
new twist on the concept. Just something I happened across on th
Internet, where it had a rather short shelf life.

Boyd Works To
Improve Water
Quality In North
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) today supported
legislation to improve water
quality in North Florida by
adequately funding the Clean
Water State Revolving Fund, a
program that helps state and
local governments address
critical water infrastructure
needs. The Water. Quality
Financing Act (HR 720)
authorizes a total of $14 billion
for the Clean Water State
Revolving Loan Fund over the
next four years.
The Clean Water State
Revolving Fund is used to
enhance water quality by
helping local communities
improve drinking water and
sewage treatment facilities.
Many counties in North
Florida, including Leon,
Jefferson, Taylor, Jackson, and
Bay Counties, have utilized
this program in the past.
"Throughout North Florida,
there is significant demand for
water and wastewater
treatment expansion and
modernization," said
Congressman Boyd. "The
Clean Water State Revolving
Fund will help to raise the
quality of life for many North
Florida residents as well as
promote greater economic
This legislation is an
example of how federal
resources can be applied to our
local needs."
The Administration's Fiscal
Year 2008 Budget proposes to
reduce the Clean Water State
Revolving Fund by $396
million from the 2007 level,
providing only $688 million in
2008. Under the
Administration's budget
proposal, Florida would
receive $23 million in 2008 for
clean water funds, a reduction
of $13 million from the 2007
o level.
u "Protecting water quality is
s a major responsibility for local
e communities and often a tough
e one with the resources they
have at their disposal," Boyd
n stated. "Unfortunately, the
d Administration's budget does
t not recognize this burden on
't our communities or the need
,e for improved wastewater
a infrastructure. I will work
e with my colleagues in the
House Budget Committee to
develop a fiscally responsible
S budget that supports programs
y that are helping our
S communities meet their most
pressing needs."
t- Helping Kids Get Fit
ie It's easy to get kids to eatwell and be
tS active with these simple tips:
S Make fitness fun. Recess combines
the best of both worlds-fun and
fitness. Jumping rope, a friendly game
It of basketball or playing hopscotch are
d great indoor options. For those who love
the winter weather, build a snow man or
le go sledding.
Be a role model. Kids look up to
d their parents and leathers, so lead by
example and do something acive every
day. Do it together and they'll really

us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves

marry until Dauntless does. The King, being under a curse of
silence, is of no help at all. A passing minstrel, the King, the jester
and a desperate lady-in-waiting devise a 'plan' to help Winifred
pass the test, and break the curse on the King. But will things go
the way they plan?

was put out, three of the pups were found to have perished in the
flames. However, two have not been found and the family hopes
they may have gotten out and then ran. One, named Pixie and the
other Rascal. Both are black and tan in color and have blue
collars. If you have seen them, please call 352-542-8856. You can
also call that number if you wish to help the Eguigurems who were
without insurance and lost everything.
Shortly after working the Eguigurems fire, a 911 call was made
for help with a brush fire off Teriko Road on 467 Ave. in the
Forest Hills Subdivision.
SKarl Nelly, owner of the property, had built a pit fire and was
burning when the winds picked up, spreading the fire, dangerously
close to his home. Fire fighters were also concerned with a
number of other homes that were in the same cul de sac.
Dixie County's Division Chief of Fire Services Darian Brown
was at the scene and noted that while we have had rain this month,
the low humidity levels we've been experiencing have produced a
"tender box" in our yards, fields and wooded areas. Brown stated
that even though we are not under a burn ban, he suggests that
folks wait to burn when conditions are more suitable.
,Minutes after the fire was contained at the Nelly home, another
call- was sent out to a mobile home off SR 349 north. The single-

Kim Enfinger stated that she had left for a while and when she
returned she saw smoke pouring out of the bathroom window. She
went to go inside through the back door, but the smoke was too
heavy, so she left to get help.
Jody Stephenson and several others began to put the fire out
prior to the fire crews arriving. Once the crews began to work on
the blaze the fire was contained, saving the structure. However the
back half of the home was destroyed.
The State Fire Marshall's Office was called in to, investigate the
blaze that appeared to have started in the bedroom area.
Donations for the Enfinger Family are being taken at
Stephenson's Septic Service and at the Stephenson 349 Express.
You may call 542-8659 or Karen Kight at 542-7181 for more
information on how you can help.
The North Central Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross
visited both the Eguigrems and Enfingers on Thursday to evaluate
their needs and work with helping them. Both families expressed
their thanks to the Red Cross.

represented more than a dozen displays on government property
that include the Ten Commandments. Most recently, Liberty
Counsel prevailed in cases at the Sixth and Seventh Circuit Courts
of Appeal against challenges brought by the ACLU.
In 2005 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a 6-foot granite
monument displayed on the state capitol grounds in Austin, Texas,
was constitutional. Citing the Supreme Court case, the Eighth
Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a stand-alone Ten Commandment
monument in a city park, in a 11-2 ruling against the ACLU.
Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of
Liberty University School of Law, commented, "Dixie County is
not establishing a religion by allowing.a private company to place
a monument in a location where similarly donated monuments may
be, placed. The Ten Commandments are universally recognized as
symbolic of the law and are appropriate for display in courthouses

and similar settings. Public display of the Commandments is
consistent with our nation's history and with the First Amendment.
There are more than 50 depictions of the Ten Commandments in
the U.S. Supreme Court, and there have been thousands of displays
throughout the country for many years."

moderate temperatures, and the opportunity once again to spend
time worshiping our Heavenly Father! Our choir did a fine job in

needed messages which God had in store for us. There is no better
place to be than in God's house, always.
We look forward to our Fellowship Supper Wednesday
evening, at which lime we will also be hosting our Suwannee River
Fair and Livestock Show participants with supper. On Sunday,
March 18th, there will be a Youth Rally, entitled "Night Thing," at

Class Of 1991 Card Of Thanks.
I want to send out a very special "THANK YOU" to Ronda
Berry for hosting such a WONDERFUL class reunion! It was ah
honor and a privilege to be able to attend, and I am very thankfill
for the opportunity. A lot of us graduated kindergarten together
and then 6th grade, but after the river flooded at the end of our 8th
grade year, I moved from school to school every year it seemed.
But I have always felt DIXIE was my home, my family! .
I had forgot that I had quit school a few weeks before
graduation over in Gainesville in May of 91', and thanks to Sherri
who helped "jar" my memory, I had wondered why I had enrolled
in school here in January of 1992 which I left in February. Also,
thank you to Tracy, Jodi, Laura, Sherri, and Amy for all the hard
work y'all put in to pull it off! I had a BLAST!!!
Thank you again, RONDA and the Class of 1991!

The Word Made Flesh
"Mark, Number, and
Name of the Beast"
Continued from last week.
The carnal nature in you (beast
mind) is carried in the WINDS OF
But, only three of these wings are
recognized in the number of the
beast. All religious ideas and
opinions that are not the truth
come in these winds. Coming out
of these winds is the great voice of
the eternal God. Out of the same
winds David saw the Lord coming
"...upon the wings of the wind."
(2 Samuel 22:11). Let us keep in
mind; SIX is used in the scriptures
by the Holy Spirit of God to
denote in completion. The reason
for the THREE SIXES being used
is to show God's great Holy Spirit

moving in the earth. They also
show the figure SIX that Satan is
using to show himself in. We are
looking at the FGURE "3". We
must clearly understand than the
mark of the beast is not the name
of the beast and the name of the
beast is not the number of the
beast. There are three parts here:
the Mark, the NUMBER, and the
NAME of the beast. You can be
under the power of any of the
three and not know it. You can
have the mark in you and be under
the influence of this mark and not
recognize the name and the
number. You can be under the
influence of the power of the name
and not know that the mark is still
working its power in you. You can
be under the power of the THREE
SIXES and not know what the
mark and name are. When we can
rightfully count the number of the
beast, we will come to the full
understanding that it is the number
of a man and his NUMBER IS
AND SIX. If you say the mark is
6-6-6 and it all of it, you would be
in error of what the scripture
teaches. This beast does not put
the mark on you, nor does he put
the name on you, he blinds you so
that you can't count the complete
number of him. He causeth all
(through unbelief of the Holy
Scriptures) to receive a MARK in
the right hand, or in their forehead,
so they cannot buy or sell. Our
RIGHT HAND symbolizes your
strength spiritually and your
power to use it, and your
FOREHEAD symbolizes your
ability to thlnk and move
according to the working of your
mind. Please read Rev. 13:16-17.
Continued next week... I come
not in my name but in the name of
Christ Jesus.

Legion News
Last Saturday, Mar. 10, the
Fourth District meeting was held
at Dunnellon Post 58, with Fourth
District Commander, Ray Hall,
presiding over the meeting Post
91 Commander, Bill Dampier and
the Post Adjutant, Bob Bennett,
represented Trenton's Post 91.
Post 149 Commander, Charlie
Fidler (also Fourth District Judge
Advocate) along with Jim Ramos
and Wayne Gravely, the Fourth
District Vice-Commanders and
Legionnaire Sylvia Fidler,
represented Post 149 in Newberry.
Fourth District Sergeant-at-
Arms. Marie Kramer (also
Commander of Post 166 in
Homosassa Springs), reminded
those present about flag etiquette
and what right and proper in
display and use of our Nation's
flag. There are some politicians
and others that forget what respect
to the Colors is when they are
campaigning for votes. It is not
always the politician, but their
advertisements that are improper
and it is up to all of us to make
sure the flag is not disgraced.
Fourth District Vice-
Commander, Jim Ramos showed
excerpts from an American Legion
DVD concerning membership,
with ideas from all around the US,
with Legionnaires from other
states telling what has worked for
them in their membership
recruiting and retaining members.
The presentation was quite
interesting and informative. Jim is
also the Department of Florida
Chairman of Children and Youth.
and he spoke
briefly about the program and
reminded us that April is Children
and Youth Month.
The Northern Area Ball is in
Lake City at Post 57 (on US-441,
just south of the city) and
will be April 21, 2007, beginning
at 6:30 PM aridgoing until. -

Area Churches To Hold A

Community Prayer Service

On March 17th At The

Dixie County Courthouse
On National Prayer Day the Shofar was blown and the voice of
God went forth. When you hear the Shofar it demands a response,
it represents the assembling of an army, it represents the breaking
and tearing down of strongholds; that day it happened!
God is saying to His children; now it is time to awake out of
your sleep and slumber...your heritage, your character, your
standards are on trial now. This is what the Ten Commandment
stand for, what is right and what is wrong!
In Ezekiel 36:26-28 it says...A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you and I will take away the
stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
And I will put my spirit within you and cause you to walk in my
statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments and do them. And ye
shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and ye shall be
my people, and I will be your God.
In Nehemiah 4:20...In the place therefore ye hear the sound of
the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us. Our God shall fight for us.
Please join us, along with area churches on Mar 17 on the
steps of the Dixie County Courthouse at 10:30 a.m. as we pray
for the keeping of the Ten Commandment monument. In prayer, all
things are possible!
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3 "Heaven And Hell"
Continued from last week. Among the newcomers was a preacher,
who when he heard these things from his associates, said with an inflamed
voice, "What has faith to do with the understanding?" The angels replied,
"What is faith without the understanding, but a blind faith?" Suddenly
then the little flame fell down from the top of the preacher's head upon his
shoe and shone there a little while. After this the angels asked the
novitiates what further they had thought from their faith, concerning the
consummation of the age and what they still thought. They replied, "We
had thought of the destruction of the universe, both heaven and earth;
since we read that heaven and earth should be destroyed, and it was said
that they should pass away in smoke." The angels then inquired, "What
heaven and what earth; the heaven and earth of the natural world or of the
spiritual-world? There are also heaven .and earth here, heaven where the
angels are, and lands upon which they dwell." At this novitiates
responded, "What is this? Perhaps you are joking? Are not angels spirit?
What is a spirit but a breath of wind? And where is this breath? Does it not
fly about in the atmospheric heaven, and go even to the stars?" The angels
then replied, "You are now in the spiritual world, and as yet you know no
otherwise than that you are in the natural world. Here heaven, where the
angels are, is above your head, and hell, where the devils and satans are, is
under your feet. Is not the soil, upon which you and we stand, earth?
Stamp it with your feet and know." But at this, because it was foreign to
previously conceived ideas, they wondered greatly; yet, because they were
in enlightenment, from the little flames upon their heads, they listened
willingly to the discourse of the angles, and comprehended the truths they
uttered. The angels asked further, "In what manner did you believe that the
destruction of your world would take place?" They said, "By fire, about
which we have believed and prophesied many things; some of us, that
flames from heaven would be cast down everywhere upon the earth, as
they were upon the sons of Aaron and upon the burnt offering of Elijah;
some that the fire of the sun would be let loose, would break froth, and set
the universe on fire; some that the central fire of the earth would break the
crust round about it, and hurl itself forth everywhere, as it does form the
fire vomiting mountains, Afina, Vesuviun and Hecla; some, that a great
comet would invade the atmosphere of the earth, and would set it on fire
with the flame of its tail, some have said that he universe would not perish
by fire, but would go to ruin, and fall to pieces, as does a house from age.
When the angels had heard these things they said to one another, "0 what
simplicity! arising only from utter ignorance of the spiritual world and of
the angels, and of their heavens and earth, and also from utter ignorance of
the internal or spiritual sense of the Word!" Continued next week...I come
not in my name, but in the name of Christ Jesus.

Trenton's Post 91 will hold
the regular monthly meeting
tonight, Thursday, March 15, and
it will be the American Legion
88th Birthday Celebration. There
will be the Donation Dinner from
5:30 until 6:45. and it will be
corned beef and cabbage in honor
of Saint Patrick's Day on
Saturday. Come out early for the
meeting and enjoy dinner and
conversation with friends and
fellow Legionnaires and Auxiliary
members from Post 91 and their
guests. Bring friends and
neighbors with you, the dinner is
open to everyone. Then plan to
stay for the meeting and hear what
Post 91 is planning for the future.
Remember our Armed Forces

all around the world, each day in
your thoughts ard prayers, and
here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and the families of those called to
active duty in service to America,
helping out however and
whenever we can. Also remember
those young men from the ALERT
Academy who helped out around
here some weeks back.

Letter To The Editor
Instead of bickering about the placement of the Ten Commandments on the courthouse steps we
all should be thanking the good Lord for the very breath we breathe among many other blessings. I
am a living, breathing, walking miracle from the good Lord and I'm very aware of it on a daily basis.
It has been seven years since the Lord used two fine people of Dixie County as instruments in his
plan to save my life. Attorney Robert Moeller and his son Declan were used by God to rescue me
from four hours of 67 degree water with nothing to hold on to but the PVC pipe of a lawn chair.
Thank you Lord and thank you Robert and Declan.
Just to show you how the good Lord can correct the arrogant actions of a wayward deacon, here is
my story:
I was face to face with the good Lord that day March 17, 2000 as I was taken behind the barn
to the woodshed.
When I moved to Suwannee in November 1993 and was accepted as an active deacon, I told my
wife and my church that I was going to be charter fishing captain but I would not fish on Sunday.
Well after a couple of years, my clients were bugging me to fish all weekend and the devil put it in
my mind "Howard you've got clients that work six days a week and the only day they have off is
Sunday and you're in a public business you ought to take them fishing on Sunday." Don'-t
misunderstand me, I'm not condemning working on Sunday. If it was wrong to work on Sunday
you'd be forbidden to get sick on Sunday because the doctors and nurses would be required to work.
I'm telling where I have to be on Sunday. After the newly elected officers and workers for the church
year (1999) our pastor called a meeting of the people involved (1 had accepted several jobs). At the
beginning of the meeting one of the ladies made a comment that, "people in leadership positions in
the church should set the prime examples." Another lady spoke up quickly and said, like fishing on
Sunday." Well I sat there knowing that the Lord was directing those comments at me. Maybe I didn't
realize at the time it was from the Lord, probably it dug at me because the words were spoken by
people. At any rate, I told our pastor, "if anyone in the church was offended by my fishing on Sunday,
I would ask the Church to take me off the active deacon list, then I wouldn't be in a leadership
position." Oh Brother, I couldn't have been more arrogant with any comment to the church than that..
During March 2000 I had a party scheduled to fish on Friday and Saturday but the weather was
bad (wind blowing from the northeast and really cold). So I called my clients and asked them to
change the fishing dates to Saturday and Sunday because the weather would be improved.
So Friday after lunch I went scouting to locate some fish for Saturday and Sunday. I had a PVC
pipe lawn chair in the boat this was the only time in my life that I had not left the chair on the dock
when I was going fishing by myself because the chair would slide around in the boat with no one
sitting on it.
Well, little did I know that the Lord was about to get my attention. I had caught a couple of fish in
one spot and was traveling at around 22 knots to try another place about 3.5 miles offshore. When a
fishing rod slid down flat on the bottom of the boat, I leaned over to pick the rod up and store it- I
was not wearing the kill engine lanyard and my hand left the steering wheel. At that time the engine
torqued into a tight turn and the boat skidded in one direction and I was thrown overboard on the
opposite side. I still don't understand how the lawn chair got out of the boat with me except the Lord
was using it as the item to save my life that day. I was in 67 degree water for approximately four
hours should have gotten hypothermia holding to that old chair pipe and praying every breath,
"Lord save me, Lord help me."
The Lord was preparing my rescue early that same morning when attorney Robert Moeller told his
son Declan he was taking him fishing when he got home from school that afternoon. That was the
reason they were still out fishing at 5:30 the sun is almost down at 5:30 on March 17th. All boats
should have been home by 5:30 and forgotten about fishing. As they were contemplating going home,
Robert told Declan he had an urge to try one particular spot offshore before going home. Before they
got to the spot they were to fish, they found me in the water hanging on to the good Lord and the
chair frame. The first words that Robert said to me were, "Man, the Lord sent me out here to get you.
I said, I know I t, I've been praying every breath, "Lord help me, Lord save me.).
Well, they got me in their boat and we went on out and got my boat which was still doing whirly-
whirlies. Thank you again Robert and Declan for a remarkable rescue, you were my guardian angels
that day.
All the time I was in that water the thoughts uppermost in my mind aside from my family were
(Howard your ox is not in the ditch. Quit trying to pull him out on Sunday. Take care of your
responsibilities in church, where upon I said, "yes Lord, save me." Thank you Lord for sparing my
So in conclusion, let's quit bickering about the Ten Commandments on the Courthouse steps and
instead thank the Lord everyday for the blessings of life. Thank you Lord.

How Can The Social Security Disability SpecialistAt Integrated Family Services Help You?

If you are denied a Social Security Disability or a SSI Claim, it is often because there was a lack of medical evidence
in support of your claim or the Administration did not consider all your impairments or the Social Security Administration failed to apply the correct legal
rules. A Social Security Disability professional can give you advice about what you need to do to prove your disability and help you gather medical
evidence. A Social Security Disability professional can request copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final
disability claim. Professionals specializing in Disability claims can request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and cannot do
because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.

Boyd, Blue Dogs Tout Measures

To Restore Fiscal Discipline
Blue Dogs make their mark on the legislative agenda
WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida) and his fellow Blue Dogs today praised the passage of
Blue Dog-endorsed provisions included in- the House rules
package. Chief among these provisions, pay-as-you-go (PAYGO)
budget rules mark the first, and most important, step to getting our
country back on track fiscally and reigning in our national debt,
now rapidly approaching $9 trillion.
The Blue Dog Coalition has long advocated a return to PAYGO
spending, which expired in 2002. In the 1990s, with PAYGO rules
on the books, our government's budget deficits diminished and we
recorded budget surpluses both in 1999 and 2000.
"Today is an exciting day for the Blue Dog Coalition," said:
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-FL), Blue Dog Co-Chair for:
Administration. "PAYGO worked in the past, and it will work
again. With the Blue Dogs leading the charge, the Democratic-
controlled Congress has demonstrated their strong commitment to
fiscal responsibility and subsequently, a strong commitment to the:
future of our children, our grandchildren, and our great nation."
The House rules package also requires full transparency and
justification of all earmarks. This provision, in addition to
PAYGO, is included in the Blue Dog 12 Point Plan, which was-
developed in 2005 to end the nation's addiction to deficit spending.
"The passage of the Blue Dog-endorsed provisions shows that
the Blue Dogs have enhanced the Democratic agenda and will be a
strong voice for fiscal responsibility in the new Congress," Boyd
stated. "However, our work is far from over. Today's victory is
simply the first step to balancing our budget and curbing our out-
of-control national debt."
Congressman Allen Boyd is a fifth generation farmer and Army
veteran from Monticello, Florida, beginning his sixth term
representing Florida's 2nd Congressional District. In addition to
his work on the Blue Dog Coalition, Congressman Boyd serves on
the House Appropriations Committee and co-chairs the
Congressional Rural Caucus.

Five to remember in college

i n the fragile world of
:sudden death
basketball, it's tough to
predict anybody as the
favorite to win the
NCAA basketball
tournament even if
.the signing defending
champion Florida
Gators do have all five
starters back from last


You could throw a net over Florida, UCLA, North Carolina,
Kansas, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Memphis with a pretty good
chance of finding a winner, but this does appear to be one of those
seasons when nobody is the dominant choice.
Fact is, unless Florida wins today's SEC title game in Atlanta
against Arkansas, Billy Donovan's team may not even be one of
the four No. I seeds after Selection Sunday ends.
Having said that, the Gators sent a loud message last week:
They're back, they're angry, they're focused and whoever plays
them had better bring dinner, because it's going to be a long night.
-Unlike in their late-season slump, when they came out flat and
lost three of their last four games, these Gators look like the ones
we saw last year when they got hot and ripped off six straight
wins for the national title.
When they come out of the box strong, they almost always win
the game when they win the first 10 minutes.
.Against Georgia Friday night and Mississippi Saturday, they
were shot out of a cannon. They ran up a 17-0 lead against the
Bulldogs before prevailing 74-57. And they rolled up a 13-2
margin against the Rebels on the way to a 80-59 semi-final
victory and trip to the finals today against Arkansas. In fact, they
shot 75 per cent in the first five minutes of their SEC wins. And
they have won them by an average margin of 19 points.
There are promising signs that have Donovan smiling in his
sleep. The belly-button defense has returned. The crisp passes are
there. The outside shooting has kicked in. The aggressive
rebounding is evident. They are playing like they like each other
again. And the energy level, thanks mostly to a rejuvenated
Joakim Noah, is off the charts.
This is where you want your team this time of the year peaking
for the stretch run.
Nobody could predict what happened last year and nobody can
do it this year, because as Donovan has said many times, his
Gators might not have been the best team in the country in 2006,
but they were the best against six straight opponents.
The fact that all five starters returned for this season when four
of them could have been playing in the NBA this year and
maybe more makes this a feel-good story for all college
basketball fans, not just Gator backers.
Noah, Al Horford, Corey Brewer, Taurean Green and Lee
Humphrey still have some work to finish, but they have provided
us with a memorable year and maybe two. It is a story for the

CFO Sink Announces Unclaimed Property Bureau

Set To Return $150 Million
Financial Officer Alex Sink announced today
that the Department of Financial Services'
Bureau of Unclaimed Property has already
returned more unclaimed property to rightful
owners in the last seven months than was
returned during all of the previous fiscal year,
which ended June 30, 2006.
Last year, the bureau paid a record $101
million in claims, exceeding the $100 million
plateau for the first time. Last week,
however, the bureau had already surpassed
that figure for the current year, putting it on
pace to potentially return more than $150
million by June 2007.
"We are holding more than one-billion
dollars' worth of unclaimed property accounts
for Floridians who have lost track of it," said
CFO Sink, who oversees the department. "We
have made it a top priority to track down
rightful owners and get their property back to
them as quickly as possible."
In January, CFO Sink personally delivered
a substantial check to a South Florida fishing
boat captain.

The check was from stock accounts;I
remitted to the department last August, tliaft
the Broward County man and his sister never-
knew their grandfather had bought for them-
years ago.
The Bureau is currently holding 7.8
million accounts, mostly from dormant
accounts in financial institutions, unclaimed
utility deposits, insurance benefits, premium
refunds, uncashed checks and trust accounts.
The state's holdings also include property
such as watches, jewelry, coins, stamps and-
historical items from abandoned safe deposit-
Unclaimed property can be claimed for'
free at any time by the rightful owners or
heirs by logging on to or by calling the-
Bureau at 1-88-VALUABLE. Until claimed,
the unclaimed funds are transferred to the'
state's School Trust Fund to benefit public-
schools. Since the program's inception in'
1961, more than $1.5 billion has been
transferred to the fund.

Michael & Joy Misinco & their new happy adopted pet CoCo Chanel
Thank you to CITGO gas station for allowing our pet
adoptions this past Saturday. We will be returning to CITGO on
the corner of US 19 and Hwy 349 next Saturday 12:30 to 4:00 p.m.
We live in a state where heartworms are a common parasite.
These parasites are transmitted from one pet to another by
mosquitoes. Heartworm disease is a dangerous, but completely
preventable infection where parasitic worms grow inside the
chamber of your dog or cat's heart and large blood vessels. Left
undetected, heartworm disease can become serious and even result
in death as worms eventually block blood flow to the heart and
lungs. That's why heartworm prevention and early detection are so
Dog's should be tested FIRST...before starting heartworm
prevenftives then tested on a regular basis, yearly if any doses of
preventive have been missed and once every 2-3 years even if no
doses were missed and preventive is used year round.
A number of preventive are available. One is given daily,
while others are given monthly. Some preventive contain
additional ingredients that control other parasites, such as
roundworms, hookworms, and fleas.
Remember, mosquitoes can get indoors, so even though your
pet may not go outside, he is susceptible.
Heartworm preventive can only be acquired through your
veterinarian so make an appointment and choose the right
preventive for your pet.

iOld Fashioned River Party At
Fanning Springs State Park
SEvent features regional musicians and period costume reenactors
Chiefland- Park Manager Sally Lieb announced that the long
-standing music event, historically held at Manatee Springs State
-_Park, will be moved to Fanning Springs State Park.
Tucked into the banks of the historic Suwannee River "the stage
,area at Fanning Springs is well suited for this type of event" said
-'Lieb. There is a new covered stage for performers and plenty of
large oak trees for shade for audience members.
Local history and park archives show that the park, with one of
Florida's world famous first magnitude springs, has long been a
:center of recreation and cultural entertainment for the area.
This year's event will feature musical performers as well as
Living history reenactors.
Several "old time encampments" will give concert goers a sense
: of pioneer life in pre-civil war North Florida.
Seminole Indian encampments at the event are likely on the very
:-site of numerous Native American cultures throughout the
;:millennia. The proximity to the river for transportation and food
:and to the clear waters of the spring itself have made this site an
:inviting place for people in the past just as it is for current day
- residents.
Children as well as adults will enjoy seeing the techniques and
tobls that early residents, indigenous people as well as European
settlers, used in every day life in the Suwannee River valley.
:That the Suwannee River was made famous because of song,
musical events just seem a natural for this beautiful park. Bring a
picnic lunch and lawn chair to relax while you enjoy the concert.
-The event hours are from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM on Saturday
April 14t",2007.
-A few performer slots for the event are still available. For more
information on this event please call John Lohde at 352/493-6823.

based FlameBlower game tied to launch

MINNEAPOLIS Since the 2004
introduction of the FlameThrower
GrillBurger, Dairy Queen has been
steadily spicing up its food lineup with
flavorful burgers and sandwiches. This
March DQ, the treat category leader and
ohe of the leaders in the quick service
restaurant (QSR) industry, again turns up the
heat by adding FlameThrower Chicken to
its:sandwich menu.
"The FlameThrower GrillBurger has
been such a hit with customers that, it made
sense to expand the offering to chicken," said
Michael Keller, chief brand officer for
Iriternational Dairy Queen. "We are fulfilling
the cravings for spicy food. The
FlameThrower Chicken Sandwich gives our
DQ fans even more to smile about."
Debuting at all Dairy Queen /Brazier
and DQ Grill & Chill locations in March,
the FlameThrower Chicken Sandwich can be
grlled or fried and is layered with whole leaf
lettuce, tomato, zesty jalapefio bacon, spicy
Pepper Jack cheese and topped off with a
taPigy Tabasco flavored mayonnaise for
extra zing. The launch will be supported by
national television advertising throughout the
month which will tout how incredibly hot and
spicy FlameThrower Chicken is. The
comedic spot features a group of co-workers
eating the new sandwich and as they exhale,
flames shoot out of their mouths.

The FlameThrower Chicken Sandwich i
the first of several new menu items and treat
that Dairy Queen will debut in 2007 and wil
sell for an average retail price of $3.90 for th'
sandwich and $5.60 for a Basket meal
complete with fries and drink.
Internet game fans also can test their skill
at DQ's new interactive FlameBlower game
Players earn points as they maneuver a hot ai
balloon through treacherous skies filled witl
birds, planes, and of course the coveted
Flamethrower Chicken Sandwiches. Points
are earned by keeping the balloon in flight
Each day, the top 25 scores will be posted
DQ.also will reward a $25 gift certificate to
randomly selected player each day for thi
duration of the promotion. The FlameBlowe
game is the second of five planned Dair
Queen viral Internet campaigns and is now
accessible at o
"We had a tremendous response to our firs
real foray into this type of viral marketing
with Slow Jam, launched in time fo
Valentine's Day," said Keller. "Launching
five of these digital initiatives over the nex

Road Cleanup In Steinhatchee
On a balmy January day,
the Steinhatchee Garden Club
and the Steinhatchee AARP .
had a road cleanup scheduled. b
Bill Cake, President of the
AARP, and his wife, Jackie,
were the first to arrive with
hats and gloves at the ready.
This was their first cleanup
experience and they were
terrific! The Cakes moved
from Gainesville and slipped
right into village life. They are
a very welcome addition to the
,, community.
In addition to the Cakes,
Freddie Hires, fresh from knee
surgery, came out to
participate along with Char
Chauncey, Sue Polhemus and
Judy Gantenbein. Jerry

e Gantenbein picked up the bags
s and delivered them to the
1, dump.
e The Garden Club is now
g cleaning Riverside Drive -
(Highway 51) from Roy's
y Restaurant to Tri County
0 Electric. The AARP continues
J. to be responsible for Hwy 51
s from Cooey's Island to Tri
County Electric.
Even though the weather 1
was perfect, more volunteers -
would have been desirable. So,
all you AARP and Garden '
Club members grab your hats
s and gloves and come out '
s Saturday, March 10th at 8:30
11 A.M. (Meet at Tri County
e Electric parking lot). Anyone
1, else interested in cleaning the
road in front of their house,
s bags will be come ',
on down.
r Make Steinhatchee pretty
h for spring.

Two versions of the Petal
Play Redbird completed byh
Joyce Snoddy.

Each quilt will be identified by owner and given a number for
tracking. Each quilt is treated with special care until the show is
over and all quilts have been returned. During the 2005 show,
there were over 600 visitors to the two-day show.
Springhouse Quilters now has a membership of approximately
85 members and continues to accept new members. The
beginning quilting classes, on going since late January, will be
completed before the end of March. There are 8 new members
attending and participating in the beginner classes and making a
sampler quilt. Each block of the sampler quilt teaches a beginner
a different technique. When the sampler is completed, these
beginning quilters should be able to make any quilt they desire.
March is nearly one-half over. One-fourth of 2007 will soon be
over. We wonder where our time is being spent and what we
have accomplished for 2007. The balance of 2007 will be a very
busy time. There are workshops and regular meetings to attend,
quilts to be started and some of the old projects to be completed.
Most quilters have many unfinished quilts on their worktable or
stored in their closets just waiting to be finished. Who knows, this
may be the year for some of those old projects to be finished and
entered in the quilt show.

Log Cabin

The Log Cabin Quilters
met Thursday, Mar. 8 at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. It
was show time for three new
quilts. Betty Dillon has
appliqued a "Road to the Sea"
with houses, barns,
lighthouses, churches and all
kinds of scenes. Her work is
something that is outstanding.
Alice Haire has finished to
tops, one painted 'Wedding
Ring" and one with hearts and
flowers. Pat has finished her
white on white couch cover
and as usual, we take pictures
of everything.
We had six from Williston
and shared patterns, books and
what ever they needed. One
lady came in who is just
learning to applique and
wanted to know if what she
was doing was right. It was,
and her blind stitches were
really blind! We enjoy all that
come in and we help everyone
who asks.
Greg and six boy were out
Tuesday and we had a great
day. Some of the boys have
never seen quilting and we like
to show them what we do.
They do so much for us out
here. Thanks, Lancaster.
Lunch was so
good...chicken and dressing,
collards, turnip roots, mac-
cheese, spaghetti, sweet
potatoes, cauliflower, salads,
biscuits, fresh bread, yummy
cookies, strawberry pie and so
much more. Sixteen members
were present and ten visitors.

Dancers from Patrice's School of Dance take a moment out of their day at the Daytona 500 to snap this

picture for their memory books.
It was a very exciting trip for 12 dancers of
Patrice's School of Dance when they went and
danced at the 2007 Daytona 500's Tribute to
America Show presented by Nextel featuring
Kelly Clarkson.
They started Saturday morning at a local
stadium to begin a very long practice day. They
were then bused into the infield at Daytona
International Speedway for a dress rehearsal and
while waiting to go on the field we watched the
final laps of the Bush race. After several more
hours of practice Kelly Clarkson came out and
gave the dancers a short, but very up close
Sunday was filled with excitement. To start
the day off the girls met Fox Sports and Speed
channel NASCAR expert analyst Jeff
Hammond. He is a former championship
winning crew chief and was very nice.
Everyone was lined up and ready to go and all
the NASCAR drivers walked by going to stand
by their cars for the pre-race show. The director
of the show remembered us from last year and
was again impressed with our dance ability and

professionalism. The entire front line was
Patrice's School of Dance and the performance
went great with a lot of energy. After dancing,
the girls walked along pit road and met a few
drivers like Kyle Bush and Kasey Kahne.
The group stayed for the race and were able
to watch Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Ryar
Newman and Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s pit crew work
on the wrecked cars. After the exciting finish
they struck around for a few autographs and to
see Jeff Gordon, Robby Gordon, Clint Bowyer,
rookie David Ragan and Speed reporter Bob
Dillner. After watching Kevin Harvick to into
the winner circle it was time to head home.
Kristin Cone, Tania Hauser, Beth Lee,
Cheryl Byrd, Ashley Jackson, Donna Robinson,
Risa Croft, Jessica Johns, Whitney Shows,
Frances Hilton, Jillian Gee, and Kelsey Brown
were the 12 to perform this year. Jessica Johns,
Jillian Gee and Tania Hauser are all from Dixie

Congratulations to all these girls for doing
such a wonderful job!
