Suspects linked to 100+ burglaries, say police
Dixie County men nabbed with help from LCSO
By Stephenie Livingston
Four Dixie County men have been
linked to the burglaries of 100 or
more homes in Suwannee, Colum-
bia, Lafayette, Taylor, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Levy, Madison and possi-
bly Hamilton counties, according to
Lafayette County Sheriff Brian Lamb.
Michael Christopher Hackle, 27;
Cody Eugene Pridgeon, 23; Dwayne
Mertz, 38; and Allen Lynn Thomson,
36, are now being held at the Dixie
County jail, Lamb said.
Untraceable items, such As gold,
coins and jewelry were targeted,
Many stolen items were sentimen-
tal in nature. Lamb said the sheriff's
office is working to retrieve these
On Wednesday, June 4, at about 5
p.m. Lamb was contacted by an alert
homeowner who gave him a vehicle
description and a partial tag number
of a suspicious vehicle. Shortly there-
after, Lamb responded to a burglary
call that was similar to others that
had occurred previously in the coun-
ty, according to a Dixie County Sher-
iff's Office press release.
The following day another home-
owner called in a vehicle description
similar to that given the previous
day. The partial tag number was run
by Deputy Randy Henderson substi-
tuting letters in place of the missing
character and shortly thereafter a
match was found.
Within an hour, Lamb was contact-
ed by Captain Chad Reed of the Dix-
ie County Sheriff's Office and was
advised that two burglary suspects

I hate weeds. After
helping my husband in
our garden recently, I
started thinking about
the evilness of those
blame things. For exam-
ple, did you know that
weeds didn't show up
until after Adam and
Eve sinned in the gar-
den? According to Gen-
es. 1:11-12, the Bible re-
calls the third day of cre-
Then God said, "Let
the land produce vegeta-
plants and trees on the
land that bear fruit with
seed in it, according to
their various kinds and
.trees bearing fruit ac-
cording to their kinds."
And it was so. The land
plants bearing seed ac-
cording to their kinds
and trees bearing fruit
with seed in it according
to their kinds. And God
saw that it was good.".

only fruitful trees and

plants. However, after
Adam and Eve's sin the
Bible records God's
words of punishment in
"Cursed is the ground
because of you; through
painful toil you will eat
of it all the days of your
life. It will produce
thorns and thistles for
you, and you will eat the
plants of the field."
Sin changes every-
thing. In this case, it
changed -Adam and
Eve's environment from
a blessed paradise that
produced fruit with mini-
imal effort into a barren
land that spontaneously
produced weeds and
briers. Fruit now had to
be produced by hard
work and the "sweat of
the brow." Commenta-
tor Matthew Henry
notes that as hard as this
punishment seems, it is
really a second hand
curse. God cursed the
serpent directly and He
cursed the ground, but
He did not curse Adam
and Eve. He adds: "This
curse upon the earth,
which cut off all expecta-
tions of a happiness in
things below, might di-
rect and quicken him to
look for bliss and satis-
faction only in things
Webster's defines .a
weed as "a plant thdt is
not valued where it is
growing and is usually
of vigorous growth; one
that tends to overgrow
or choke out more desir-
able plants." In our own
lives, we are wise to be
on the lookout, because
of the sin-nature within
each of us, we all have
the tendency to sponta-
neously produce weeds.
Anything that is not only
good for nothing, but
also has the inclination
to choke out good things
in our life should be con-
sidered a weed. A few
examples might be
watching too much TV,
taking others for granted,
allowing a hobby to turn
into an obsession and
keeping bad company.
No value, and choking
out our satisfaction in
God's blessings, all the
while eating up precious
moments of our life.
A final thought we can
all agree with, get 'em
while they are small! I'm
the first to kick against
pulling weeds,, but
putting it off won't make
harder to get rid of. Let's
do a little weeding and
get back to that abundant
.life of producing fruit,

Ramblings from the past
Mayo Merchants continued...
0. A. Winburn, Jr.
As a youngster, I
spent quite a lot of
time on main street
where business was
conducted daily. The
and Furniture Com- "
pany occupied a large.
two story brick building that had once
been the "Mercantile" business. There
is a food store there now, on the south
side of main street across from the
courthouse. After a few years of sitting
idle after the demise of the hardware
store under it's last owners, James W.
Winburn and Jim Medlock, the build-
ing was sold to Arlie Townsend, a busi-
ness man who moved the Ford dealer-.
ship there from it's previous location at
the present Mayo Hardware store and
one time Western Auto Store.
Arlie was a Lafayette County prod-
uct and was well educated and ran his.
own insurance and accounting busi-
ness in Live Oak before becoming own-
er of the Ford business after Charlie
Ware sold out and moved to Taylor
County as owner of the Phillips Oil
Distributorship. The Phillips Corpora-
tion was expanding into Florida at that
time and Charlie took advantage of the
opportunity to establish their presence
Arlie had some misfortune with the
Ford business after. a short while at that
location when the building burned and
destroyed the inventory of the Ford
dealership. Being a sound business-
man, I expect Arlie had a little insur-
ance on the building and it's contents
and so he may have not suffered finan-
cially but the Ford dealership in Mayo
was -history from that time on. The
bricks from that building were sal-
vaged and moved and Mr. Townsend
later sold the property to Levis Lawson
who .built and operated a convenience
store there for several months before
Mule 'drawn equipment was still in
vogue then and could be found there at
Winburn's Hardware & Furniture
Store. Some of those items sold at the
store such as mule drawn sprayers,
wheel barrows, garden plows, push
powered lawn mowers with the old
cutter bars that were driven from
movement of the wheels and a. few oth-
er items were displayed on the side-
walk in front of the store daily and at
the close of the-day, were moved back
inside, occupying all the available aisle
There was a harness department in
the back where leather goods could be.
made or repaired as needed. Plow
lines,. trace chains, mule collars and
pads and harnesses were all there. Sad-
dles, Western as well as McClellen Tree
which were designed to be used on
mules, were available. A bit of a spoof
originated way back then concerning a
saddle. Someone had purchased a
Western saddle and "booked" it. Trou-
ble was, the clerk that sold it didn't
properly naine the purchaser. .When
bills were sent out the first of the
month, the saddle was added to each
one thinking that only the owner
would respond with payment. As it
turned out, everyone that was sent a
bill remitted payment for the saddle ex-
A new set of plow lines could be eas-
ily obtained as the sales person knew
how many turns around the elbow and
thumb it took for a set of lines and there
were marks on the floor used to mea-
sure the trace chains.
My daddy, O.A. Winburn, Sr. who
had formed that Winburn store in part-
nership with his daddy, Joseph W. (Un-
cle Joe) was also an undertaker, having
done an apprenticeship at Seashole in
Jacksonville while employed with Mr.
Sims at his store in Hawthorne around
1920. The way he wound up in
Hawthorne was he had been employed
at the Sims store in Mayo and Mr. Sims
asked him to manage the store in
Hawthorne. His salary was raised a bit
to cover the added expense and he was
also given a percentage of the gross
sales. If I remember correctly, his new
'salary was thirty-five dollars a week.
There was a warehouse behind the
main store and wood burning stoves
which were purchased in box car lots
and other heavy items were stored
there. Mule drawn wagons were in
crates, yet to be assembled due to the
limited storage space. A selection of
manufactured coffins for use in the
"undertaking" business were kept in a
room near the front. "Homemade"
coffins were available also and were
built on the spot by a skilled carpenter.
Mr. Dutton Perry was the gentleman
that I remember carrying out that chore
and I have watched him as he plied his
trade. Cypress planks were the wood of
choice ahd he turned out a handsome
product, lined on the inside with a
black fabric. The smell of sawn cypress
planks still resurrects memories of
those homemade coffins. The cost of a
funeral at that time was $25 except
when a manufactured coffin was used.
I was present one Sunday afternoon
during a visit at my parents home after
daddy had retired and we were sitting
on the front porch there on main street,
when an automobile pulled up and a
man got out and started towards the
house. Daddy took a close look and
said he believed he knew him and sure
enough it turned out to be an old ac-
quaintance and he was there on busi-
As I sat there listening I heard a tale
of this man having lost his wife many
years ago and not having the money to
pay my daddy for performing those fu-
neral services. He had moved away in
order to make a better life for himself
and children and told daddy that one
day he would be back and pay him
what he owed him.
The way I heard it, that was about 40
years ago and the man commented that
he hoped some relief was in order for
all that interest due on the debt. Daddy
quickly told him there would be no in-
terest. I saw a smile appear and a sigh
of relief I believe and he asked daddy
then what the amount was he was told
that it was $25 and he forthright pulled
out his billfold and paid over the mon-
The names aren't important so I
won't mention any, but this example of
the trust folks had in one another
speaks volumes about the way things
were back then. Sadly, those days are
gone, but not forgotten, at least not by
many of us.
Those "last rites" services were con-
ducted somewhat different then than
now. Stories I can recall tell of many
different preachers taking a turn at eu-
logizing the deceased. At times, that
practice would cause the service to run
- on into the night, requiring the church
to be illuminated by those kerosene
lamps being used at that time before
electricity became available. The final
procedure, closing of the grave had to
be carried out with the aid of
Part III to follow......

They were surprised to learn that
you can buy stamps that support

got a behind the scenes tour of how
mail gets sorted and delivered to our
homes and post office boxes.
At Drummond Bank they were
able to see exactly how fast they can
count money, and see how neat it is
to work with money everyday.
At the Library they were intro-
duced to all of the parts of the li-
brary. They learned that not only
can you check out cool books, but,
you can check out movies and
At First Federal the 1st graders
were introduced to their safety de-

little boxes that hold important doc-

They ended their trip with a chick-

"ASK A LAWYER" COLUMN
WHAT IS 'HEIR'S PROPERTY?'
S.B. of Mayo asks
"What does the expres-
sion 'Heir's property'
mean? I've heard of it
but don't know what it
S.B. let me ask you a
question... what hap-
pens if a person dies,
with or without a Last
Will and Testament, but
the estate is NOT pro-
bated? (as was discussed
in last month's column).
Assume that there is real
property involved and
there is no surviving
spouse or other person
who takes title to the
property by way of
"right of survivorship"?
(That situation occurs
ALL of the time.) Now
assume that there are
brothers, sisters, nieces,
nephews, even mothers
and fathers. What then?
We know that the laws
in the State of Florida
and all across the coun-
try provide for who is to
inherit the property
where there is no Last
Will and Testament
(which is called dying
"Intestate," or without a
Will), but if no one
brings the matter to the
attention of the court,
what happens? Usually,
years go by until some-
one. must sell the proper-'
ty and then that person
finds out that the prob-
lem requires judicial in-
decades go by.
The 'good news' is
that there are laws in the
State of Florida which al-
low for utilization of
what is called a "Sum-
procedure if the dece-
dent has been dead for
more than two years and
there has been no prior
administration of the es-
tate. It is still a problem,
and it can be a huge
problem if there are
many potential heirs, es-
pecially if they disagree
on who is to get what.
Unfortunately, there is a
saying amongst lawyers
that applies to cases like
that which is that there
are no fights like family
fights, so that is a situa-
tion everyone wants to
Unless you own prop-
erty which passes by op-
eration of law to a co-
owner due to a clause in
the Deed or other instru-
ment which says that ti-
tle to the property pass-
es by way of a "right of
survivorship," it is quite
likely that those you
leave behind will have
to go to court to have a.
court formally decide
who is to get title to the
property or what per-
centage of the property
belongs to whom. If you
have a Last Will and Tes-
tament which specifies
who is to get the proper-
ty, the Will must be ad-
mitted to probate to
have effect. If you die
"Intestate," or without a
Will, Florida law will de-
termine who gets what.
(Chapters 731 through
735 of the Florida
So, S.B., The term
"Heir's property" is
used to describe the situ-
ation where title does
not pass by way of a
"right of survivorship",
clause, the estate was
never admitted to pro-
bate and a judge never
formally declared and
determined who the
rightful owner of the
property was, leaving
NO ONE as the legal ti-
tle holder, just a whole
bunch of people with a
claim that they are the
I hope I've adequately
answered your ques-
tions. My best advice is
to talk to a lawyer, make
sure you have a 'Last
Will and Testament' and
plan your estate so that
your property does not

This past week I have

hot breath of death on the

I'm not sure what it
was, I think it was some
kind of mind manipula-
tion. One consolation, I
have a mind that can be
manipulated. For the past

not know my body was
listening, but obviously, it
took everything to heart.
I was sure I did not
have the swine flu; it was
more like the canine flu
because I was barking
every other minute. How
I encountered this canine
flu, is something I cannot
figure out. I just put it
down as" a matter of mis-
guided osmosis. As far as
I can remember, no dog
has laid a paw on me for
at least six months.
It is just the way my
mind works. When my
mind makes up its mind,,
it does not mind if I mind.
My mind hears one thing
and jumps to a conclusion
whether it is the right con-
clusion or not. It heard
swine flu arid by the time
it had run through its
process, my body had the
'My- biggest concern
about the canine flu was,
are there any fleas in-
volved?'The barking I can
handle, the "scratching is
what drives me crazy.
Whatever I had, it kept
me in bed for the better
part of three, days.. My

was popping pills info my

Then, according to her
medical aptitude, when a
person is in my state of
health they need plenty
of liquids. There was a
constant supply of or-
ange juice, water, hot tea
with honey, water, iced
tea, water. All of this was
interspersed with gener-

Not being a regular
drug user, I was not fa-
miliar with the state of
such activity. No sooner
had I dosed my eyes and
drifted off into sleep
when I began hallucinat-
ing. I was seeing and
.hearing things not there.
Of course, who is to say
that they were not there?
At the time, they seem
quite real to me.
For one entire morn-

was these fascinating hal-
lucinations. I no sooner
convinced myself that
this was simply a drug-
and would soon pass but

When the hallucina-
tions subsided, I sighed a
deep sigh of relief and lay
back in my bed. It took all
the energy I had just to
dose my eyes. I figured it
would take three hours to
recover the strength I
used in that activity
alone. I did not care, I was
not going anywhere.
When I say I was not
going anywhere, I did not
quite mean it. It was
about this time all the
morning liquid applica-

was not hallucinating. Al-

only 10 feet away, it
might as well have been
10 miles away. Through
bleary, teary eyes, I could
barely make out the door

Last Tuesday, May 26, someone dropped two
puppies off at my place of business. I have suc-
ceeded in finding a forever family for one of the
puppies, however am finding it difficult to place
the second. He's an adorable little boy, not sure
how old he is. I'm guessing between 10 & 12
weeks. I treated him for fleas, and they're all
gone. Other than being very hungry when I
found him, he looks to be in great health. Loves
the water and is very kid friendly.

and an African Ameri-

One male reportedly dis-

Community asked to
help animal shelter win
$1 million makeover.
Suwannee County Animal Shelter could be.the recipi-
ent of a $1 million shelter makeover. All that is required
is registration at www.zootoo.com/makeover. Please use
zip code of 32062 for the shelter when registering. Par-
ticipation by all area residents is crucial, as we have
about three weeks to accumulate enough points to be in
the top 20. Fifty points are immediately accumulated just
by registering, and additional participation in various ac-
tivities on site will add more points.
There are no requirements by the public other than just
registering and your support. We can't stress enough the
importance of the community's support. A shelter
makeover could mean saving the lives of many stray ani-
mals here in Suwannee County.

Learn about hurrica ez
What is. a In' .*.?
A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone, the generic term for a low pressure sys-
tem that generally forms in the tropics. A typical cyclone is accompanied by thunder-
storms, and in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near
the earth's surface.
All Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal areas are subject to hurricanes or tropical
storms. Parts of the Southwest United States and the Pacific Coast experience heavy
rains and floods each year from hurricanes spawned off Mexico. The Atlantic hurri-
cane season lasts from June to November, with the peak season from mid-August to
Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and several hundred miles
inland. Winds can exceed 155 miles per hour. Hurricanes and tropical storms can also
spawn tornadoes and microbursts, create storm surges along the coast, and cause ex-
tensive damage from heavy rainfall.
Hurricanes are classified into five categories based on their wind speed, central
pressure, and damage potential (see chart): Category Three and higher hurricanes are
considered major hurricanes, though Categories One and Two are still extremely dan-
gerous and warrant your full attention.

Hurricanes can produce widespread torrential rains. Floods are the deadly and de-
structive result. Slow moving storms and tropical storms moving into mountainous re-
gions tend to produce especially heavy rain. Excessive rain can trigger landslides or
mud slides, especially in mountainous regions. Flash flooding can occur due to in-
,tense rainfall. Flooding on rivers and streams may persist for several days or more af-
ter the storm.
Between 1970 and 1999, more people lost their lives from freshwater inland flood-
ing associated with land falling tropical cyclones than from any other weather hazard
related to tropical cyclones.
How are Hurricanes Named?
Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms have been named from lists originated by the
National Hurricane Center and now maintained and updated by an international com-
mittee of the World Meteorological Organization. The lists featured only women's
names until 1979. After that, men's and women's names were alternated. Six lists are
used in rotation. Thus, the 2001 lists will be used again in 2007.
The only time there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the
continued use of the name would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. When
this occurs, the name is stricken from the list and another name is selected to replace
Sometimes names are changed. Lorenzo replaced Luis and Michelle replaced Mar-
When community evacuations become necessary, local officials provide information
to the public through the media. In some circumstances, other warning methods, such
as sirens or telephone calls, also are used. Additionally, there may be circumstances un-
der which you and your family feel threatened or endangered and you need to leave
your home, school, or workplace to avoid these situations.
The amount of time you have to leave will depend on the hazard. If the event is a
weather condition, such as a hurricane that can be monitored, you might have a day or
two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the
most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.
Evacuation: More Common than You Realize
Evacuations are more common than many people realize. Hundreds of times each'
year, transportation and industrial accidents release harmful substances, forcing thou-
sands of people to leave their homes. Fires and floods cause evacuations even more
frequently. Almost every year, people along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts evacuate in
the face of approaching hurricanes.
Ask local authorities about emergency evacuation routes and see if maps may are
available with evacuation routes marked.

What do you do?

If evacuating your home is recommended:
/ Heed their warning!!
/ Plan ahead where you would go -- it may be beneficial to choose a few
places like an out of town friend's home or a designated shelter, etc.
/ .Take the phone numbers of these places with you.
/ Take a road map in case the weather forces you onto unfamiliar roads.
/ Do not drive over standing water, as floods may have damaged the roads.
YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW DEEP THE WATER REALLY IS!!!
If you are in the path of a
land-falling hurricane, you should prepare
a supply kit containing:
/ A first aid kit and necessary medications.
/ Canned food and an opener, as this food lasts for long periods of time
without needing refrigeration.
f Plenty of.water. (The Red Cross recommends three gallons of water per
person to last three days.)
/ Flashlights, a battery powered radio, and extra batteries.
( Raingear, sleeping bags, and protective clothing.
More complete information on this subject as well as how to .best prepare your
house for a hurricane can be gathered by contacting your local Red Cross chapter.

your pets for an emergency.
Animals brought to a pet shelter are required to hitve; proper identification col-'
