SRWMD approves new irrigation permits


By John M. Ayers
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District governing board
approved four permits that will al-
low the withdrawal of over 5 million
gallons of water per day from the
Floridian Aquifer in the upper Santa
Fe River Basin on Tuesday, Dec. 13,
2011 during a meeting held at the dis-
trict headquarters in Live Oak.
The district governing board's ap-
proval follows a meeting recently
held in Lake City where public of-
ficials and citizens from three North
Florida counties reviewed ways to
stop a water consumption permit
requested by Jacksonville Electric
Authority to pump up to 155 million
gallons of water per day from the
aquifer.
However, SRWMD Executive Di-
rector David Still said the permits
were approved based on statutory re-
quirements.
"We base our decisions on statutes,
regulations and scientific evidence,"
Still stated. "We have a job to do


and that is to follow regulations.
Staff makes a recommendation to the
board and the board can either accept
or reject that recommendation."
Save Our Suwannee, a local conser-
vation group is concerned about the
minimum flow levels. Annette Long,
of Save Our Suwannee explained that
the numbers currently being used for
the SRWMD are "outdated".
"We haven't had 'normal' rain here
in Florida for decades and we are
in an established 13-year drought.
Knowing that, you are still permitting
withdrawals of our water resources
with historical levels built in to the
model," Long explained in a presen-
tation to the board.
Still said that the SRWMD is cur-
rently working on new minimum
flows and levels for the District's riv-
ers and springs and they will be re-
leased between 2012 and 2016. The
minimum flows and levels for the
lower Santa Fe River are expected
sometime in the beginning of 2012,
Still reported.


The minimum flows and levels are
implemented statutorily by the Leg-
islature and it is the District's respon-
sibility to follow them, the executive
director explained.
Three of the permits approved at
the December 13 meeting are for
farms in Gilchrist County. Loncala
Dairies, owned by Alliance Grazing


Group, was approved to pump 3.8
million gallons per day. That permit
was applied for on Sept. 15. This new
farm is reported to be involved in the
cultivation of row crops for several
years before a dairy will come into
operation. Piedmont Dairy, also a
company of Alliance Grazing Group,
will pump an additional 900,000 gal-


lons and William Douberly Farm will
pump an additional 500,000 gallons.
Coggins Acres in Madison County
will pump an additional 300,000 gal-
lons a day for irrigation purposes as
well.
The Gilchrist County Commission
has invited Still to attend their Janu-
ary 3, 2012 meeting to discuss issues


that involve both the county and the
Suwannee River Water Management
District. This meeting will begin at
1:30 p.m. in the Commission Meet-
ing Facility on south Main Street.
The public is welcome to attend this
meeting.

FHP on the hunt for


hit and run driver who


killed Cross City man


By John M. Ayers
A Cross City man reported to have
been riding his bicycle on US 19, De-
cember 22, was hit and found dead at
the scene by what FHP reported was
a hit and run driver.
The accident occurred 1.9 miles
north of Cross City as the cyclist was
reported to have been riding south in
the north bound lane.
Henry ThomaS Kight, 71, was
struck in the front with what FHP
reports was the right front and right
side of a pickup type vehicle.
After the impact the cyclist trav-
eled onto the east shoulder where he
was found expired, reported Corporal
R. W. Howard of the Florida High-
way Patrol.
Florida Highway Patrol is conduct-


During a special meeting held on
December 20, the Gilchrist County
School Board approved changing the
district boundary lines.
The change was made in accor-
dance with the 2010 Federal Census,
which revealed that due to popula-
tion changes, boundary lines needed
to also change so the school district
would meet the requirements of Flor-
ida Statute 1001.36.
Under the statute, each of the five
school board member residence areas
should be as nearly equal in popula-
tion as possible.
The Gilchrist County Commission-
ers will also consider approving new
district boundary lines at their next
meeting on January 3, 2012.
A map depicting the new district
boundary lines is on page 6.

FHP investigators are asking the
public to be on the look out for a
Chevy or GMC pickup of the S10,.
C1500, C2500, or C3500 models.
The suspect truck should have signif-

Prescribed

fire season

underway

By Greg Marshall,
Senior Forester
Wildfires can cause major environ-
mental, social and economic dam-
ages. The loss of timber, wildlife
habitat, homes and even lives may re-
sult from a devastating wildfire. The
wildfire that does not start is the one
that does not have to be fought.
Prevention, one of the most impor-
tant goals for the Florida Forest Ser-
vice, is the key in helping to reduce
the number of human caused fires.
Even though Florida is the lightning
capital of the world, arson and es-
caped debris burning are still the two
main causes of wildfires in Florida.
Smokey Bear remains an active part
of our overall prevention message,
but our work goes beyond Smokey.
The Florida Forest Service has sever-
al education and mitigation programs
aimed at reducing all types of human
caused fire.
Florida's fire dependent ecosys-
tems and year round fire season pose
a challenge to wildland fire fighters in
their attempt to continually educate
Floridians and visitors about wildfire
danger in Florida and Prescribed Fire
use in Florida.
Remember, there are good fires
and bad fires. In the winter months
prescribed fires or good fires will be
conducted throughout the state in or-
der to reduce fuel, improve wildlife
habitat, and restore longleaf pine eco-
systems. Recently, prescribed fires
have been conducted in surrounding
counties, which has caused smoke
to be seen on the horizon. When a
.cold front passes, conditions become
favorable for prescribed fires such
as lower humidity, consistent wind
speed and direction and a more stable
atmosphere.
If you have any questions regarding
prescribed burning or want Smokey
to visit your school, contact the Flor-
ida Forest Service at 352-463-4196.
To learn more about other services
provided visit the Florida Forest Ser-
vice at www.fl-dof.com.

mary is set for January 31, 2012. You

ST lRE lETWIS lt
By lauren Rudel


It is the most wonderilil time of
the year...although probably not for
the millions of unemiployed...or the
more than one million holiieowinei's
who are in lIoreclosu're. Oh, and there
is also that small problem ol those
without adequate lheallh insurance
or aIy health insurance.
'lb make matters worse, congresss
has decided to once again take on the
persona of Scrooge, as it continues to
allow partisanship and parliamentary
procedures to create a dysfunctional
environment deprived of all rational-
ity. Nevertheless, this is the holiday
season and as critical as those issues
are to our country's future, they are
of a macro nature. On a more micro
level is your personal investment
strategy.
Now to the uninitiated investor,
Wall Street was no walk in the park
this year. However--and don't spill
your eggnog--Wall Street is, and al-
ways will be, the place to be if you
want to increase your wealth. Addi-
tionally, there is no "good time" or
"bad time" to invest. It is the method-
ology with which you allocate your
investment resources and the quality
of what you invest in that determine
your level of success.
As 1 have discussed here many
times, anyone can successfully es-
tablish and maintain a profitable
portfolio. And you can do it without
the espoused professional assistance,
the myriad of newsletters, books, and
charts, and the never ending series of
free meal seminars that are so often
hawked. To say you cannot is an ex-
cuse, not a reason.
But there is another side to in-
vesting. As you sit back, eggnog in
hand, take a moment to ask yourself
this question: have you ever helped a
child, a teenager, or maybe even an
adult learn some investment funda-
mentals? It is never too early or too
late to introduce someone to the ben-
efits of equity investing.
I mention this idea every year not
because of the avalanche of email I
receive requesting that I do, but be-
cause the discipline of investing will,
of necessity, play an ever increasing
role in determining a person's future
financial security and well-being.
For example, you cannot do better
for a young child than with a gift of
a few shares of Disney. Whether Dis-
ney is the most sanguine investment
is not relevant. What is important is
that you obtain the actual stock certif-
icate, which you can then frame and
hang in a place where the recipient
can view it regularly.
Decorated with Disney characters.
the certificate is almost a piece of art.
Besides, how many pictures can your

child hang on the wall that will in-
crease in value?
For those family members who are
too old for the Mouse and crave a
more exciting life, there are compa-
nies such as Apple, Microsoft, Ado-
be, Intel, Cisco and Hewlett-Packard
that will likely raise the level of in-
vestment interest in most teenagers.
If video games are more to their
liking, then companies such as Elec-
tronic Arts, Take-Two Interactive
Software, Activision Blizzard and
THQ become candidates. Some of
those companies, such as THQ, have
not done all that well recently, but
your kids probably know that better
than you. They are also likely to be
informed as to what the future bodes
for gaming software houses. Finally,
an enterprising teenager might even
uncover a lesser known name that is
ready to outperform its brethren.
So how do you go about setting up
an account for your soon-to-be Wall
Street prodigy? The shares should be
in a deep discount brokerage account
that can be viewed on demand via the
Internet. At the same time,you want
to maintain the degree of supervi-
sion and restriction on both trading
and the withdrawal of funds that you
deem necessary.
Ideally, you want to iristill the
idea of investing as opposed to trad-
ing. Yet, if your budding analyst can
make a case for moving out of one
stock and into another, go along with
the idea. Learning should take prece-
dence over possible returns.
Finally, let your young investor go
it alone. Try out your ideas on your
portfolio. The more a young person
can learn about investing and invest-
ment research, the greater the likeli-
hood that he will be able to establish
himself on a sound financial footing
in his life.

nist Lauren Rudd at LVERudd@Caol.

I've scraped myself off the couch
to write this column this week. For
the past fourteen (14) days I have
been fighting the crud aka really bad
cold. Christmas dinner was cooked in
spite of the fact that I have not tasted
anything for the last 10 days. John
stepped in and saved the day; he not
only tasted every dish to make sure it
was seasoned well, but he also cut up
the fruit for ambrosia and he washed
up a pile of dishes.
No matter how much you like to
cook, cooking' without your taste buds
or a sense of smell working is kinda
like having your hands tied behind
your back or cooking in the dark. Ev-
eryone said dinner was good, but to
tell you the truth they may have been
taking pity on me and saying it was
good when it wasn't, like their South-
ern mothers have taught them. I'm
sure if my taster comes back one of
these days I won't be nearly as sour.
Anyway, here it is nearly New
Year's Day, it's time to whip out the
pork product of choice, either hog
jowl, fatback or in this case smoked
sausage and simmer up a pot of good
old dried black-eyed peas for New
Year's Day. Did you know black-
eyed peas originally came from Afri-
ca and have been a staple in Southern
kitchens for a very long time?

FHP cracks down

on impaired

driving during'

holiday season
Submitted
Governor Rick Scott recently
proclainfed December as National
Drunk and Drugged Driving Preven-
tion Month. As part of Florida's fo-
cus on safe highway travel during the
holiday season, the Florida Highway
Patrol will join thousands of other
law enforcement and highway safety
agencies across the nation in Drive
Sober or Get Pulled Over, a nation-
wide campaign targeting impaired
driving through January 2.,2012.
Impaired driving is one of the
deadliest crimes, especially during
the holiday period. During the 2010
Christmas and New Year's holiday
travel period, approximately 35 per-
cent of the traffic fatalities in Florida
were alcohol related. Motorists, bi-
cyclists and pedestrians who comply
with our state's traffic laws and use
sound judgment can help make the
holiday period safer and less stressful
for everyone.
"Impaired driving continues to be
a priority for law enforcement in the
state, and the Florida Highway Patrol
will be intensifying enforcement dur-
ing the holiday," said FHP Director,
Col. David Brierton. "Our goal is
to create the safest possible driving
environment by modifying driver be-
havior and helping drivers make bet-
ter decisions."
FHP Auxiliary and Reserve troop-
ers will augment the Patrol during the
heightened travel periods.
The Patrol offers these tips to make
your holidays safer:
Plan ahead.
Use a designated driver.


1 pounds of good link smoked sau-
sage
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 pound dried black-eyed peas,
soaked overnight and drained
2 teaspoons salt
1 heaping teaspoon of black pepper
1 pot of hot cooked rice
Peel the casing off the sausage and
cut into inch slices. Fry the sau-
sage in a large heavy bottom pot. It
will become all crumbly as it browns.
Transfer the meat to a bowl and set
aside. Cook the onion and garlic in
the sausage grease or drippings until
tender.
Next add the drained black-eyed
peas and cover with room temp water
then add the sausage, salt, and black
pepper and put the lid on the pot and
cook over medium-low heat for 40
minutes or so. Taste for seasonings
and adjust as needed. You may need
to add water as the peas cook. Add
just a little water at a time so the peas
don't become too watery. Cook an-
other 20 minutes.
After they are done either serve
them over the white rice or mix peas
and rice together and serve with fresh
hot pepper or bell pepper and onion
chopped up on top.
Oh, by the way, make a big ol' pan
of cornbread and mustard or collard
greens to serve with your black-eyed
peas and you will have a New Year's
feast fit for anyone on either side of
the Mason-Dixon line.

If you are impaired, call a taxi, use
mass transit or call a friend or family
member to get you home safely.
Call *FHP (*347) to-report in-
toxicated or aggressive drivers, or if
your vehicle breaks down and you
need assistance. To request immedi-
ate emergency services, dial 911.

Jesus Christ
(Kent Heaton)


The angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and
told him wonderful news about the birth of a son. Mary
had been found with child and Joseph was minded to put
her away secretly. Assured by the angel that Mary had
been blessed among women to bear the child prophesied
as Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14), Joseph was told to call the boy
Jesus, "For He will save His people from their sins"
(Matthew 1:21).
Our names become who we are and our identity is rooted
in the image of our name. When the name of a family
member or friend is recalled in conversation we mentally
create the likeness of that person from the relationship we
share with them. Even those we love who have died still
engender a mental painting of their image as we think
about what they looked like, how they walked or talked,
or a myriad of things that flood our memories of that
person. Names are the bridges that connect our
relationships.
The name of Jesus Christ is a marvelous name. Joseph
and Mary called their son Jesus. Smith's Bible Dictionary
suggests the meaning of Jesus as being "the Greek form of
the name, Joshua or Jeshua, a contraction of Jehoshua, that
is, 'help of Jehovah' or 'savior'" (Numbers 13:16). As a
baby Mary would sing songs to Jesus. Growing up in his
father's carpenter's shop, Joseph would call out to Jesus as
a loving father to a son. The name Jesus would be the
older brother of James, Joses, Judas and Simon and the
big brother of some sisters (Mark 6:3).
Christ is not so much a name as a title. Christ means
"anointed," the Greek translation of the Hebrew word
rendered "Messiah." Paul explained in Acts 17 that the


Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead saying,
"This Jesus whom I preach to you is the Christ" (Acts
17:3). Jesus is the Messiah, the anointed of God. In one
sense we find in the name Jesus Christ the humanity and
deity of Jesus. The earthly name of Jesus shows He was a
man tempted in like manner as all men (Hebrews 4:15).
When 'Christ' is included with the salutation significance
of His divinity is shown. The early disciples taught that
Jesus of Nazareth was a Man attested by God by miracles,
wonders, and signs which God did through Him (Act 2:22).
The greatest lesson about the name Jesus Christ is what
Peter declared in Acts 4:12 "Nor is there salvation in
any other, for there is no other name under heaven given
among men by which we must be saved." This name-
only this name is the path of salvation. Paul illustrated
that Christ became man and died for all men (Philippians
2:5-11). Jesus Christ is Lord because of His obedience.
To be forgiven of sins, it is required that a confession is
made of the name of Jesus. "If you confess with your
mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God
has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved"
(Romans 10:9). This confession is the power of the name
Jesus Christ. Through obedience man yields to the name of
the Son of God to find the only Way, the only Truth and the
only Life (John 14:6).
Jesus told His disciples before ascending to the Father,
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing then in the name of the Father and? of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19). The name of'
Jesus Christ is the fulfillment ol' the will of the Father and
the Holy Spirit.

Levy County Horse Club President, Dave Wilson presents Jennifer
Adams, Shands Cancer Center Clinical Social Worker, a $4,800 check
for local breast cancer patients use.
Horse Club donates $4,800.00

to Stands Cancer Center


Submitted by: Dave Wilson
The Levy County Horse Club
held their 11th Annual Breast Can-
cer Awareness Benefit Trail Ride on
October 29, 2011. The event is held
at the Tidewater Trailhead in Goethe
State Forest each year in conjunc-
tion with Forest Awareness Month
and Greenways and Trails Month.
This benefit is for a great cause, and
there is no better reason to be out on
the trails. This year's event raised
$4,800.00 that was donated to Shands
Cancer Center to be utilized for lo-
cal breast cancer patients. The Levy
County Horse Club has donated a to-
tal of $34,625.00 into our foundation
that is administered by the Shands
Cancer Center to date.
The horse club held our annual
Christmas ride/campout/dinner dur-
ing the weekend of December 17th,
2011, at which time we presented the
check to Jennifer Adams. Clinical So-
cial Worker for Shands Cancer Cen-
ter. She told the club how the funds
are so desperately needed and have


been used to benefit about 500 pa-
tients in need so far. These funds are
used for purchasing patients' combs,
brushes, wigs, gas for trips for chemo
treatments, and even provide an oc-
casional payment for a patient's elec-
tric bill. The monies have also paid
for an elderly lady's car transmission'
to be repaired to allow her transpor-
tation for her chemo treatments.
A single parent that was a recipi-
ent of our funds four years ago went'
back to school and is now working
at the Shands Cancer Center in ordet
to give back and help others who are
going through what she herself had:
undergone. 'Success stories such as,
this are what make it worth all the'
planning, work and local contribu-
tions required to put on such an event
to benefit our neighbors.
If you are interested in next
year's event or wish to learn more'
about our horse club, you may,

SHappy New Year! As the clock
ticks away the final moments of 2011,
I want to challenge you to a year-end
project:
o First, take a moment to recall
some of the blessings of the past year.
Sfnile over them, cry over them, share
them with others, write them down
(if you like), and then give thanks for
how they added to your life.
Next, take another moment to
think about the inevitable struggles
and hardships of the past year. Nat-
urally, we often just want to store
those unpleasant memories away
and hope never to see them again!
However, experience teaches that we
usually learn much more from hard
times than easy ones, so we poten-
tially "waste" wisdom by not being
willing to analyze times of adversity
in our, lives.
If we are honest, this kind of reflec-
tion is uncomfortable, often because
it reveals how much we contribute to
the controversy in our lives. It makes


J heart M.atters
D A.L.... 1 ,,I


Dy anlleIt lllan
us feel better (at least temporarily) to
blame others and shuck the responsi-
bility of our own choices and actions.
While thinking on these things and
asking God to inspect my own heart
over some recent struggles, I read
Psalm 37. Verses 5-8 were especially
insightful:
"Conmmit your 'wav to the Loyd;,
trust in him and he will do this:
He wiill make your righteousness
shine like the dawn.
the .justice of your cause like the
noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord andl wait
patiently for himnt
do not fret when men succeed in
their ways, when they carry out wick-
ed schemes. Refrain from anger and
turn from wrath; do not fret --it leads
only to evil."
The use of the word "fret" several
times in these verses caught my eye.
Our English definition implies irrita-
tion or agitation. Indeed, we use this
word to encourage others not to "fret"
over minor inconveniences. The
original Hebrew translation, howev-
er, is a much stronger word. Accord-
ing to the Key Word Study Bible,
"Harah" means "to burn, to be angry,
incensed; points to the fire or heat of
anger just after it has been ignited."
This gave me the mental image of
the intensity of a match immediately
after it catches fire. The Holy Spirit
brought to miid several times this
past year when I did this kind of fret-
ting. Even when we fret over a "just
cause," God warns us to refrain from
this kind of anger that would lead us
into evil. Fretting indulges us to take
matters into our own hands instead of
waiting on the Lord. Not only is this
a waste of time, it also has the poten-
tial to take a small problem and make


it into a huge mess! Anyone out there
besides me guilty of useless fretting?
Looking ahead, after reflecting on
this passage I felt God invite me to
the challenge of verse live instead of
making a list of New Year's Resolu-
Iions: "(Colmmuit your way to the ILord;
trust in Him..." because if I take Him
up on this challenge, He has prom-
ised to hold up His end. According
to this verse, if I commit my motives
and intentions (my way) to Him,
He will defend them. This means
1 won't have to waste time fretting
over them...and 1 sure like the sound
of that!
Because Every Heart Matters,
Angie

Cowboy Dave


by Bob Denny
This morning I'm driving to a local
nursing home. I'm helping "Cowboy
Dave" (AKA Dave Henrie) unload
country music paraphernalia from his
truck and set up on stage. Walking
down the hall, I see smiles come over
faces as people recognize "Cowboy
Dave." He makes frequent stops to
chat and renew friendships. They're
about to experience some good, live
classic country and gospel music.
Dave has been a real cowboy and
singer all his life, bulldogging and
calf roping, rodeo announcing, and
performing music. Now living in ru-
ral Gilchrist County, Florida, with his
wife/soul mate, Sharon, he has fond
memories of riding and camping with
their horses Smash and Danny in
North Dakota, South Dakota, Tomb-
stone, the Badlands, Mount Rush-
more, and the Grand Canyon, as well
as riding Florida trails while their old
Australian shepherd dog tried to keep
up.
Born in New York in 1940, "Cow-
boy Dave" has been a farmer, a meat
cutter, a level-nine machinist, and a
snow maker for ski resorts. Since
moving to North Central Florida 12
years ago, he has spent much of his
time rehearsing and performing clas-
sic country and gospel music. Band
membership has been a "rotating
door." recently including his friends
Cherokee, Reverend Dale, Chris,
Roxanne, Gene, and Ron. I'm lucky
to be a part of his current group,
"Cowboy Dave and Friends."
Is Dave rich after a lifetime of ro-
deos and performances'? He's rich
in spirit. He's one of those gener-
ous guys who perform for veterans'
hospitals, nursing homes, the domi-
ciliary, senior centers, and dementia


wards in residential facilities. Dur-
ing the Viet Nam era, Daie was not
called upon for military service be-
cause the United States needed those
farmers and their farms to feed the
nation.
It's obvious that Dave loves, re-
spects, and appreciates these older or
less able folks and has a strong de-
sire to give the gift of music and fun
to his audiences who have given so
much to their country. Regarding his
reason for performing, he says, "I
wanna make their day! If you have a
skill or talent, share it." Sharon adds,
"Dave always wants to make people
feel good about themselves."
Is he special? Dave says no, the
audiences are the special ones, and
many other bands like the local popu-
lar McCormicks country gospel mu-
sic group give their time and talents
to worthy causes, as well. He en-
courages folks to do volunteer work.
Once the music starts, audience
members tap their feet, call out re-
quests, and sing along. A couple of
nurses or attendants may dance in
the aisle. There's a sparkle in some
eyes, from old memories revisited.
Some may not remember what day it
is, but they remember the words well
enough to sing along.
Packing up should be really quick
and easy, but it's not. Dave spends
this time chatting and maintaining
those friendships. They already look
forward to the next visit of their friend
"Cowboy Dave." Happy trails!

Moving our
Economy forward
Submitted
USDA Farm Service Agency State
Executive Director Tim Manning
states we learned that farm income
in 2011 is forecast to reach an all-
time high, up 28 percent over 2010,
signaling that American agriculture
remains a bright spot in our nation's
economy. The growth in farm in-
come is also making a real difference
for America's farm families, whose
household income was up 3.1 percent
in 2010 and is forecast to increase 1.2
percent in 2011. And despite mar-

other country thanks to the produc-
tivity of our farmers. All told, this is
good news for our national economy.
A combination of factors has
made this growth possible, including
strong returns on cash receipts and
off-farm employment, strong yields
despite weather setbacks, and record
high farm exports, which continue to
make U.S. agriculture one of the only
sectors of our economy to log a trade
surplus year after year.
Exports support nearly 10 million
American jobs. Overall, U.S. agricul-
ture supports 1 in 12 American jobs
in all sorts of industries from pick-
ing and processing, to packing and
shipping, to shelving at your local
market. Farm. exports support more
than 1.1 million jobs here at home.
A few weeks back, President Obama
signed into law a major piece of his
jobs agenda: new trade agreements
with Colombia, Panama and South
Korea. These agreements will sup-
port tens of thousands of jobs here
at home, put unemployed Americans
back to work. and open new oppor-
tunities for American businesses. For

America's farmers and ranchers, the
trade agreements provide our best
opportunity to build upon what has
been a record year for U.S. agricul-
ture. Combined, the agreements will
generate an additional $2.3 billion in
farm exports next year alone.
USDA believes that America needs
an economy that makes, creates, in-
novates and exports. And there is no
better way to spur productivity than
by putting more money back into the
pockets of American families. The
current payroll tax cut has given tax
breaks to millions of families across
the country this year, and now Con-
gress is deciding whether it should be
extended in 2012.
If the current payroll tax cut is not
extended, taxes will go up on mil-
lions of people at a time when fami-
lies are struggling to make ends meet.
A typical household earning $50,000
a year will see their taxes increase
by $1,000. The administration's plan
would give the typical family earning
$50,000 a year an additional $500,
for a total tax cut of $1,500, provid-


ing assistance to middle class fami-
lies at a time when many are still try-
ing to get back on their feet.
For our part, USDA will continue
to maintain a strong farm safety net,
expand local and regional food sys-
tems, and promote greater export
opportunities for U.S. agriculture,
all designed to increase incomes for
America's farm families. But to help
rebuild an economy that restores
security for the middle class and re-
news opportunity for folks trying to
reach the middle class, we also need
to invest in the middle class.

design program
Submitted by
Troy Roberts, FGC,
Public Information Coordinator
Ever thought about video game
design as a career choice? Florida
Gateway College will begin offer-
ing that opportunity in Spring 2012


vice president, Dee Gay; Secretary,
Elaine Zahn; and Treasurer, Lois
Scott.
Frances William announced that
Shirley Regis of Newberry had won
the 2011 raffle quilt entitled "Jane's
Tulips", after holding a drawing of
the 1600 tickets sold on the quilt.
f,'rances Williams and Pat Hodges
presented gifts of appreciation to
Stephanie and Paul Metts for their
generosity and support throughout
the year.
Susan Manina, another winner dur-
ing the evening, received a gift cer-
tificate donated by Stephanie Metts
to the December 17th tea held in the
Ruffled Rose Tea Room.
Each member attending the party
was requested to bring a food item
to be donated to the local food bank.
There were at least 125 cans and car-
tons of food collected for the food
bank.
As business ended, applause erupt-
ed as Santa entered with a ho-ho-ho
and a bag of goodies. Each member
was visited by Santa, gifts were ex-
changed, and the annual party came
to a close.
What a joyful and happy evening,
made complete because of friend-
ships, fantastic food, and the sharing
of ourselves and our bounty.
Beverly Shobe and Lois Scott,
publicity


as it launches its new Game Design
program.
"This is the perfect introduction to
it," said Dr. Charles Hall, President
of Florida Gateway College. "A lot
of people are interested in games, and
some taking this class may consider it
as a career choice. Others may enjoy
it, but not want to do it on a profes-
sional level. But it gives students the
opportunity to find out if this is right
for them."
The two-semester, certificate-level
program will begin being offered in
the spring with two courses-the His-
tory of Electronic Games and Game
Design and Gameplay.
The first course will "look at the
history of electronic games, starting
with some of the really early stuff,
pinball machines and such, and go
through the modern systems, our
Playstation 3s and Xbox 360s," said
Josiah Lebowitz, FGC's professor
of Game Design. "You'll be look-
ing at influential companies, games
thalt define genres, games, that Rade
an impact in their time, people who
are important to the industry basi-
cally, we'll be looking at the games,
people, trends, and companies that
brought the industry from nothing to
where it is today."
The Introduction to Game Design
will begin to explore the processes of
developing a game, Lebowitz said.
"We'll look at what game design
is, what the different roles are on a
game development team, the basic
fundamentals of how to create a game
idea. and develonin- it from the ini-

tial thought to a full-fledged docu-
ment on how the game will play and
what it will be about," he said. "It's
a good introductory overview course
on game design in general."
FGC will include additional cours-
es in the fall, which include courses
on video game writing, developing
a plot and storyline structure; game
production, which will add a man-
agement aspect to the course and
will focus on time management and
distribution; and an advanced design
course which will give students a
more hands-on aspect with a focus
on gameplay and level design.
"This is a basic course about what
game design is about," Lebowitz
said. "It gives you an opportunity to
try out each of the main disciplines,
get a feel of what is right for you, and
allow you to move on to a more full-
fledged program."
