Work Begins On Turner Point Landing


Improvements
*By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Improvement may be an understatement when
describing plans for Turner Point Landing. With
$194,300 from a Florida Boating Improvement
Grant and another $72,000 from Florida
Recreational Development Assistance Program
(FRDAP) the popular boat ramp will soon be
transformed into a family recreational area.
County Coordinator, Arthur Bellot and
District 1 Commissioner, Hoyt "Buddy" Lamb
were on hand for a tour of the site last week and

Lamb stated that Dixie County is fortunate to
have Bellot on their team. "He really knows how
to tap into resources that bring funding to our
county for projects such as the one here at Turner
Point," Lamb stated.
Bellot said that currently six of Dixie's ramps
have the new floating docks. Turner Point will
make six on the Suwannee and one on the

2005 Hee Haw Comedy Show Cast: Erin Sheppard, Cory Hodge, Jessica Harris, Casey McKinney, Mark Markham, Jana Kight, Bobby Leverett,
Alisha Anderson, Crystal Hendrix, Holly Freeman, Kimberly Hightower, Brittany Liles, Callie Keen, Brittany Hodge, Jessica Waters, Klint
Cooper, Kris Keen, Karen Evans, Samantha Corbin, and Danny Riels, and Coordinator Gloria Gilbert.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Saturday proved to be somewhat of the challenge for
the 12th Annual Hee Haw Show, but neither the rain nor the
numerous cancellations of guest singers would dampen the spirit of
the energetic ajd r-lentd Dixie County High School seniors. After
all "the show must go on," and that it "did. By the end of the
evening, the 2005 cast would bring down the house and lift the
spirits of all in attendance.
Show Coordinator Gloria Gilbert pulled from her vast resources
of Dixie talent and found some last minute acts that would put
professionals to shame.


Lara Gilbert was the acting MC for the evening, a first for the
1992 DCHS graduate. Lara began the show with the introduction
of DCHS's own Maddie Kelley, whose angelic voice has helped
award her several beauty titles and is always a crowd pleaser.
Next in the lineup was Kyle Thomas. who played his guitar and
sang a wide variety of favorites, including a special sonrg he
dedicated to his lovely wife, which brought out a loud ahhh...from
the crowd. Several times throughout the evening Thomas was
asked to perform bringing on a heap of foot stompin' and hand
clapping from the audience and cast members alike.

SWA Votes To Bring Suwannee's Water Supply

Up To 21th Century

Standards
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The/Suwannee Water Association (SWA) Board voted "yes" to
proceed with the construction of a new water treatment facility,
which will meet Florida's Class I drinking water standards and allow
for future growth in the coastal community.
In a phone interview last week with SWA's Chairman, Jim
Brown, Brown indicated that the Board had "done their homework"
and came to the conclusion that the new membrane water treatment
facility was in the best interest of the residents.
This time last year a pilot water plant using the membrane
technology was installed at the 39-year old plant. Tests showed that :; '
the system was successful in not only resulting in better tasting, .
better-looking water, but most importantly it removed Tri
H-lalomethane (THM's). Studies indicate that the presence of THM's,
a chemical reaction when organic materials are mixed with chlorine,
may cause cancer. With those finding in mind, the Department of
Environmental Protection has mandated the reduction of THM's by.
2006. In addition to THM's, Suwannee, like other coastal water
treatment plants, continually battle iron, organic and sediment R .-a '
problems.
With the mandate deadline knocking at their back door, and
continued problems with the outdated system, the Board knew that it .tal e'a tmser
was time to act.
While residents are ready for safe, drinkable water, they aren't Suwannee's wate tower and water treatment plant has stood as a
keen on their water bills rising. The price tag for the new system has landmark for nearly 40 years. The outdated system will soon be
been estimated at 4 million. However, County Engineer Frank replaced by a new water treatment facility bringing the town's water
Darabi has been able to secure funding for more than half of the total up to 21th century standards.
cost. The DEP's State Revolving Fund program has approved a
grant of $1,100,000 and United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development program has added to the pot another $1,000,000.
Rural Development is also providing a low-interest loan for the remainder of the project cost. An exact cost to the residents has not been
determined, but it may be upwards of a $10.00 a month increase.
The new plant's capacity will be 300,000 gallons of water per day, with the potential to expand and will also include a 220,000 gallon
storage system. The old storage tank will be used as storage during the first phase of the project.
Brown also noted that the Board was currently looking for funding for a new distribution system, which would replace the old water
piping and mainlines throughout the town bringing Suwannee's treatment system up to 211h century standards.
Bids will go out in June or July of this year with an approximate completion date of 8 months after groundbreaking.


pointed out the work that had already begun by S
& T Services who were awarded the bid for some
of the clearing and construction. Also on hand
was Road Supervisor Howard Reed who stated
that this project has been slated as one of
importance and resources from all the counties'
various agencies will be utilized.
Bellot noted that funding through the Florida
Wildlife Commission's boating improvement
grant would provide for the removal and re-
construction of the boat ramp, a new floating
dock, shoreline protection, and parking area.
Bellot also noted that the source for the grant
come from boating registration fees. "It's your
tax dollars at work," he stated. Monies from the
FRDAP grant will be used for fencing, restrooms,


Steinhatchee. He also noted that Dixie County
has more ramps on the Suwannee River than our
neighbors across the river. "We are in great
shape," he added.
Lamb asks residents in the area to please be
patient during the construction. He added that
ramps at Purvis and Gornto, which are just a few
miles to the south and north of Turner Point,
could be used until the project is completed.
Lamb, also noted that the boat ramp located
off CR 340, known as the Rock Bluff ramp,
could also be used and is slated to be the next
ramp for an overhaul.
The project should be completed in May, just
in time for the Memorial Day Holiday, which
typically kicks off the boating season.

Ted Turner has a cow
I believe that's the expression the young folks are using.these
days to describe someone who conspicuously over-reacts to a
situati. ii. Like, "Man, don't have a cow!" When I grew up, having
i cow meant owin, I4 a liur-lV'.ed ariiinal ili;n produced milk and
Was kept in your barn. but medid mogul led Turner recently had
ihe other kind of a cow.
: Mr. Turner had his bovine experience during a recent
convention of TV executives in Las Vegas. Turner pioneered cable
TV, which spawned satellite TV, 'with the "pay-per-view" concept
inetastasizing from the morass until we now get to pay for a few
hundred channels, most of which nobody watches, and have to
cough up still more bucks to watch a recently-released movie.
:Ted Turner blew his top. had his cow, or whatever, while
addressing a crowd of admirers, because his beloved CNN (Cable
News Network) got slammed in the ratings by FOX News. He
equated FOX New:' popularity to Hitler's in pre-World War II
G:--n. .a: and called FOX News an arm of the Bush
administration.
Well doggone, Ted, that's what any good, knee-jerk liberal is
supposed to do. George W. Bush was born in July of 1946, a little
over a year after Adolf Hitler committed suicide. Probably a
delayed reincarnation or something. Shux, every left-winger in
Hollywood has been saying that for the last year. Where you been,
boy? And we all know that the people at FOX News sometimes go
4 whole day without reading the New York Times, so don't act so
surprised if their slant on the news doesn't match CNN's.
^ I seem to remember that, some years ago, Ted Turner tried to
3uy CBS because the network was "too liberal." The deal didn't go
through, but any bets on how much less liberal it would have gotten
4'ith Ted running the show? The way I see it, Mary Mapes .(Dan
Rather's erstwhile producer) and her entourage would probably still
.fe there, and Dan would certainly not be stepping down from the
top anchor spot, not for a little thing like trashing George W. Bush
iyith forged documents, even if the scheme did backfire..
: Frankly, it amazes me that a man as successful as Ted Turner
could do so many dumb things. Topping the list, of course, is
getting married to Jane Fonda. Sure, she's good-looking, but while
I hate to sound like some sort of libertine, you just don't have to get
rnarried to score with a broad like her, especially when you're
packing a billionaire's bank account. And that hokey "Gone With
3the Wind" wedding! Were those real slaves, or just volunteers
0rom the Hollywood talent pool?
: When Vince McMahon of pro wrestling's WWF (now WWE)
started taking over the industry back in the 1980s, Turner bought
put (or at least he thought he did) a promoter who was trying to
take on McMahon on the cheap and wasn't getting it done all that
,yell. Ted had all kinds of cable outlets at his disposal, and he
saturated them with his WCW bouts, paying the bucks to hire the
piest talent in the business; but McMahon still out-grossed him,
both at the box office and in the explicit nature of his
performances.


SIncidentally, all this is why it now costs 50 bucks to watch an
absurd parody of a wrestling card on TV, despite the fact that the
Super Bowl can be seen with an outside antenna, and no extra
charge for any wardrobe malfunctions that might occur during the
halftime show.
, Perhaps you saw the photo of Ted as he was railing at his Las
YVegas convention audience. It showed up last week on the Drudge
Report website, but I couldn't find it a couple of days later.
Anyway, Turner's face was as red as a baboon's backside, and his
expression looked like that of a constipated guy who just ate a fist-
dull ofjalapeno peppers and chased it with a dose of Ex-Lax and a
double shot of tequila, while doing an impersonation of Howard
Dean. Truly a Kodak moment.,
: A FOX News representative responded to Turner'soutburst by
saying, "Ted is understandably bitter, having lost his ratings, his
network, and now his mind. We wish him well."
To which I can only add, Moooooooooooooo!


Remembering
Last week, in a dark and snowy spot in Poland, world leaders
and private citizens gathered to mark an anniversary. On January
2, 1l.45, Soviet troops hblieraled the Nazi death camp at a place
called Ausehwit, M"ic lli.in 1.5(110.000 people died in that place

God has many charactcri tics that we mere mortals do not. One
of these is the ability to forget. The Bible has some interesting
thlou ghts on this. Hebrews 8:12 says "For I will forgive their
wickedness and will remember their sins no more." How great is
that? We remember the bad and torture ourselves with guilt and
God says, I have forgotten about it, thrown it into the sea."
Let us use memory correctly. Let us recall the blessings and
share them with others. Let us ever so briefly remember the tough
lessons and bad times and move on
God tells us to do things "in remembrance of me." The thin, -,
we should remember are many.
"Remember the wonders he has done."

Florida League Of Cities Thanks Chief
Financial Officer Tom Gallagher
For Leading Insurance Fraud Fight
Tallahassee The Florida I e.igtu of Cities has presented
Florida's Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher with a resolution
to acknowledge his department's work in fighting insurance fraud.
Florida League of Cities President Clay Ford, who also serves as
Mayor Pro Ternm for the City of Gulf Breeze, presented the
resolution during a brief ceremony at the Capitol.
In accepting the resolution Gallagher said, "This is a gracious
acknowledgment of our department's anti-fraud work, but we
certainly realize the battle is not over. Fraud is still a serious
problem in I-loi ida and is costing our citizens millions of dollars in
increased premiums and ni increased costs for goods and services.
Ford said fighting insurance fraud is very important to the
Florida League of Cities, which arranges workers' compensation
coverage for governmental agencies throughout Florida, and he
said the league will continue to refer suspected cases of insurance
fraud to the Department of Financial Services. The department's
Division of Insurance Fraud has produced the highest number .of
insurance fraud arrests and convictions nationally in recent years.
The League of Cities resolution specifically praised the efforts
of Lt. Skip Bosworth, an investigator for the Division of Insurance
Fraud, citing his work in obtaining a guilty verdict in a significant
workers' compensation fraud case.
Suspected cases of insurance fraud in Florida can be reported
anonymously on the Department of Financial Services website at
www.fldfs.com. Insurance fraud costs each Florida family an
estimated $1,400 annually.

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't
work." Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931)

GALLAGHER LAUNCHES

PROGRAM TO AID

HURRICANE VICTIMS HIT BY

MULTIPLE HURRICANE

DEDUCTIBLES
ORLANDO The program to reimburse. Floridians who were
subject to multiple insurance deductibles because their homes were
damaged by more than one hurricane in 2004 was launched today
by Florida's Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher. The Multiple
Deductible Reimbursement Program was created in response to
financial hardships suffered by Floridians when catastrophic
hurricanes crisscrossed the state last August and September.
"Because of the financial devastation these people have
suffered they may not be able to rebuild or repair their homes. The
consequences of such a scenario could be financially devastating to
the economy of this state," said Gillagher, who pushed for
legislation to require one hurricane decdctible for the season
starting in 2005 which was passed by state lawmakers. "The
program to provide these storm victims financial relief is now up
and running and applications to eligible individuals will soon
arrive in thousands of mailboxes across the state. I encourage
those who are eligible to submit their applications as soon as
possible so that we can get them the financial assistance they need
to start rebuilding."
Gallagher's comments were made at a press conference today
in Orlando, where many storm victims were hit by more than one
hurricane and are potentially eligible for, reimbursement for
multiple deductible losses. He also previewed the program
application so eligible 'Floridians have a better idea of what to
expect and how to complete the applicalini The program will be
administered by the Florida Department of Financial Services,
which Gallagher oversees. Joining Gallagher at the press
conference were House Majority Leader Andy Gardiner from
Orlando and Representative Dennis Ross from Polk County,
chairman of the House Insurance Committee.
The enabling legislation for the program, sponsored by Miami
Senator Rudy Garcia and Representative Ross, was passed during a
special legislative session in mid-December and appropriated $150
million for relief. The new law requires liiat financial assistance be
paid first to Floridians who paid two or more full deductibles,
followed by those who paid part of a second or third deductible.
Floridians eligible for the program include homeowners, renters,
manufactured homeowners, condominium unit homeowners and
condominium associations, who paid one full deductible for
hurricane losses and also incurred deductible losses from a second,
third or even a fourth hurricane.
Maximum reimbursements under the program are $10,000 per
qualifying event up to a maximum of $30,000. Condominium
associations can recover a maximum of $3,000 per unit that did not
have insurance for assessments. Any policyholder who paid more
than one full deductible also may be eligible for relief. All
reimbursements are subject to the limits of funding appropriated by
the Florida Legislature.
According to Gallagher, policyholders will receive an
application from their insurance company by mail along with
information needed to complete the application. He advised that if
the application packet does not arrive by January 27, 2005, then
the policyholder should call the Department of Financial Services
at 1-800-22 STORM for guidance. Applications will also be
available on the department's website at www.fldfs.com.
All applications must be completed, signed and filed v ith the
department by March I. 2005.

Vickie Boyd & James McCollum
Vickie Boyd & James McCollum
would like to announce
their approaching marriage on
Monday, February 14, 2005
three o'clock in the afternoon at his home,
2 miles North on Chavous Road, Old Town, Florida.
Royce Hanshew will perform the ceremony. All friends and
relatives are invited to attend.
A reception will be held following the ceremony.

'S Calvary Temple News
So many good things are taking place in the Kingdom. We
rejoice to be a part. Our youth returned Monday from a great snow
skiing trip to North Carolina. They really worked hard toward this
trip and we are proud of them. Praise and worship at Calvary is
really being taken to a new level through the prayers and hard
work of the praise team. This Sunday will be new membership day
at Calvary. The following Sunday, Feb.131h, we will have water
baptism in the morning service.
Our W.M.s (Women's Ministry) will be meeting on Feb.7th at
the home of Sister Sheila Cannon at 7:00 p.m.

Behold the Tabernacle of God.
"Iay and Night"
i Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say some are
entering into the darkness of the Night of Tribulation, those who know
Him in Truth will be entering into the great and glorious promises of the
Bible in the brightness of God's New Day! This will be DAY AND
NIGHT AT THE SAME TIME. This physical Natural world is made up
so that right now while the sun is setting upon millions of people, bringing
on the blackness of the midnight hour upon millions more it is just rising
with the promise of a new day! As in the natural, so in the spiritual. God is
separating the light from darkness, and He is clearly identifying each. I the
Day of the Lord, say the light is getting brighter, new truths are being seen
by the light of God's divine revelation, new realms in God are being seen
andattained to. While at the same time those who at one time seemed to
have a measure of truth are denying the light and going into ever
increasing darkness of the Night. I the Day of the Lord, say THE SUN
SHALL GO DOWN. Micah 3:5-6! Thus saith the Lord concerning the
prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry,
PEACE: and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war
against him. Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a
vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun
shall, go down over the prophets, AND THE DAY SHALL BE DARK'
O ERTHEM!" I the Day of the Lord, say when the great Day of the Lord
appears, the day that will usher in the greatest display of God's glory that
thoworld-has ever seen, it will -only be a time of darkness and terror to
these false prophets who have caused God's people to err, crying Peace,
when God was calling for us to put on the whole armour of God that we
mi ht stand in the battle in that Day. I the Day of the Lord, say Preachers
are- still fervently preaching, and. people are still desperately and
hopelessly clinging to the theory of a "Rapture" that will carry us all off
thi earth that we might escape the Day of the Lord. People, hear me
tody.. God plan is far better! Who wants to escape the glorious Day of
release from every bondage? Who would run away from the greatest out
pouring of the spirit ever known, I the Day of the Lord let me make this
clwr, we shall be here DURING the Tribulation, but we shall not be here
F the Tribulation, but while those who are unprepared to stand are
berg swept away as in the days of Noah. Continued next week.

Valentine Memories
Daisy L. Butler
Valentine Smalentine! After three score and ten, plus, who cares? I do! A noted psychologist said oldsters
don't need memories as much as we need good forgeteries:.
But why should I ever want to forget my first memorable Valentine's Day introduction to Jesus by the way of
cutting out a red heart with a caring Sunday School teacher hovering over me. She skillfully answered my
questions. "How could I give my heart to Jesus? How could I get it out of my chest? What would I wrap it in since
I had no swaddling clothes?"
I learned HE didn't give a Rap about my wrap:.
After being'promoted from cutting hearts from red paper doilies a classmate taught me how to draw half a
heart in my right hand with the initials of the best-looking boy, hoping his ldft hand would reveal half a heart with
my initials.
Time and arthritis graduated me to Hallmarks. My loved ones will read what they can't take time to hear.
Except my only child. Her valentine will be pansies for her grave. Her favorite flower. Her lonesome husband's
card will tell him he is my son.
My second time around Valentine's card will have stars. Not stars from a whack on the head but stars in the
Heavens. He will read 'somebody up there loves you and somebody down here loves you, too. ME!'
My grandson's, and wife's, valentine will tell them that they are great parents to their three little children who
call me GG short for great grandmother.
The kindergarten graduate's Valentine will tell her she is a sweet leftover Christmas angel. She will say, "I
know."
A younger one's will tell him I love to be with him. If he is in a good mood he will say, "I wuv you." If he in a
pouty mood he will say, "Dumb! 'Tupid!" Words he might have heard me say.
The two year old's will be read to her by her parents.
"You're sweeter than Candy
Cuter than Cupid, too
We're as glad as can be
With our little sweetheart, you.!"
She will clap her hands and name the bright colors.
My sophisticated granddaughter's valentine will acknowledge her 'pretty is and pretty does' manner. Her two
younger than young ones cards will be decorated with Care Bears.
My valentines from the wet-set will be scratched all over with Os and Xs. (Many hugs and kisses) The ones
from the jet-set will be Whitman Samplers. As I simple the boxes of chocolates to emptiness I will be convincing
myself that if a little lump of sugar is sweet a big one should be sweeter.

Abundant Life and Living
St .John 10:10 (KJV) Jesus said that He came that we might
have life and have it more abundantly.
God want his human family to live abundantly; with more than
enough, overflowing, full of glory, healthy, happy with enough to
share and spare. With love, peace and joy to
pass on to others be patient, kind and
cheerful.
: Many of us have discovered stress, hate,
jealousy and hostility causes disease, pain,
sickness and death. If we plan to be
alive and in the change for the Rapture, we
will have to challenge all the things that
causes us to get sick and die. Add to the I
above, mentioned: ugly attitudes, evil Lucille Stockton
thoughts, unforgiving, lying
and stealing, because all of these must also be put out of our lives.
They are not conducive to abundant living.
; The human family must do a lot of preparation to live, Just the
opposite, we don't have to do anything to get ready to die, it is
already prepared. for us. Life is so precious, wonderful and
exciting.
It is so good to be alive and well. Thank God for giving us
Jesius that set us free in Spirit and truth, we also thank God for our
founding fathers for freedom to worship as we choose.

The Word Made
Flesh
"Miracles"
SContinued from last week. I,
tho son of man, say look at all the
miracles in Egypt, at the Red Sea
and on Mount Sinai. Within a
month the sons of Israel stopped
worship of God and worshipped a
gdlden calf. Exodus 32: Look at
tho rich man in hell, who said to
Abraham, that his brethren would
repent, if one from the dead was
sent to. them. Abraham replied,
they have Moses and the prophets,
let them hear them. If they hear
mr)t Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, if
one rose from the dead. Luke
16:29-31. I, the son of man, say
look at Thomas, who said that he
would not believe unless he saw,
to whom the Lord said, blessed are
thby who believe and do not see,
John 20:29. Those who believe
and do not see, are they who do
n&t desire, signs, but truths from
the -Word, thus Moses and
prophets/ believe them. These
latter are internal people,. but the
former are external and remain
sensual. I, the son of man, say
people would not be compelled by
external means, and being
compelled is not from freedom.
N6 one is reformed by miracles,
because they compel and no one is
reformed by threats and
punishments, because they compel
and no one is reformed in states
that do not spring from rationality
and liberty. I, the son of man, say
to.compel and no one is reformed
in states that do not spring from
rationality and liberty. The
exiernal person must be reformed
by means of the internal and not
the reverse. A person should act
from freedom in accordance with
reason. Both of these would perish
inca person if a miracle is not faith
but persuasion. For there is
nothing rational in it, still less
anything spiritual for it is only
exemrnal without an internal.
Continued next week.


Faith Baptist

Church
It was great to have Bro.
Jackie back this morning. We
always miss him when he's
gone. Thanks to Bro. Bobby
Bryan and Bro. Don Winstead
for filling in for him while he
was away on vacation. Bro.
Jackie delivered a wonderful
message this morning before
we observed the Lord's
Supper. Afterward, we had
lunch in the fellowship hall for
5t Sunday. That evening we
had our 5th Sunday Sing. As
always our people shared their
talents with us and we praise
God for all the talent He's
placed in our midst. It was just
a great day in the Lord.
Remember that the Easter
Brothers will be here Friday
night in concert at Faith
beginning at 7:00 PM. There is
no admission charge, but a
love offering will be taken for
them to help with their travel
expenses. If you have not
heard them, come out and let
them bless your hearts in song.
They are wonderful.
So many of our folks are
out sick and need our prayers.
Also, remember the bereaved.
May God touch their hearts
and heal them with His love.
Invite someone to come to
Sunday School and church
with you next week and
remember our mid-week
prayer service on Wednesday
night. We look forward to
seeing you next week.

Card of Thanks
We the family of Beth
McKinney have been humbled
and honored by the outpouring
of love and support by our
relatives, friends, church
family and members of the
community. Your prayers,
visits, cards, food, flowers and
donations to the First United
Methodist Church have beeft
greatly appreciated.
The words "thank you"
seem so insufficient to
adequately express our
gratitude for all that each of
you have done for us during
this time but are all we have to
offer. May God bless each of
you. :

Steinhatchee Fishing Repor
By: Brian Smith, Gulf Stream Marina and Big Bend
"Pink Holy Roller"
The First Baptist Church of Steinhatchee is
having a three-day revival February 6-9. Yes,
this is a fishing report. The first sentence isn't,
necessarily, a revival announcement, though all
are welcome to come, but a lead into the story.
You see, First Baptist is the church my wife Gina
and I attend and they're having a fish fry the
evening of the seventh. I came in the picture
when my beloved volunteered me (not that I'd
mind anyway) to take "boys" of all ages fishing
for the fry.
Saturday morning, after a group breakfast and
devotion, the gang of us climbed aboard my 32-
foot catamaran for a capacity test. There were
six men and seven young men for
a total of thirteen kids ready for a
meat hunt. A motionless fog
blanket was draped over the river ..
cutting visibility down to 75' or ,,
less making it navigation by n"'' -
numbers off the GPS.
"There's a marker, captain,"
said the guys bird-dogging for
me from the bow as we crawled
out the channel, one marker at a .
time. ,'
Once past marker one, I '
decided not to go pick up the bait ,,
traps because they were amongst ..
countless stone crab buoys. I
figured by moving that slow and
not being able to see well, we'd have a real good
chance of wrapping a buoy line around one of the
props. So I erred on the side of caution.
Ironically, a few miles southwest of marker one
the sky was clear as a bell.
We jabbered and joked for forty-five minutes
cruising to the first hard bottom spot. Then
twelve hooks dropped down. The poles were
rigged with an equal mix of grouper and
grunt/sea bass tackle. A few pink mouth grunts
came abroad; far less than I expected but it was
just the first stop. We bopped out a little further
to see if some grouper might join us. The few
holes I anchored on produced some grunt,
triggerfish and few short grouper. It was
apparent that those 'honey holes' of mine had
been tapped by other beekeepers in my three-
month absence.
About that time, the leading edge of a cold
front passed over rinsing us briefly with a
shower. Teamwork made popping up and rolling
down the custom canvas works quick to get us
out of the weather. The wind picked up a bit
making the 2-3 foot rollers we were fishing in
turn more to a hard three-foot Gulf chop. I
brought the boat east about eight miles just in
case things got nasty we wouldn't have to endure
a long boat ride.
In the fifty-foot zone, we made several stops
just to manage a few black sea bass and a
scattering of grunts here and there. The fish box

by Pfizer Inc and Eyetech

bloodstream through blood


was slowly filling. We might have enough to
feed the congregation. "This is the last spot" I
announced, hoping to put an extra bucket of
grunts and sea bass in the box. It worked. The
little 'Steinhatchee snappers' lit off sparking an
early revival in the First Baptist Church of the
Gulf of Mexico. Everyone was bringing fish in.
Thankful the guys were taking the fish off and
baiting their own hooks, I got to watch everybody
in action. The spirit moved from one fellow to
the next in random order. Brother Nate

light above. When caught up, Nate performed a
dance that I can best describe as a rapid series of
forward and back bends combined with spastic
wrist rolls that I knick-named the "Pink Holy
Roller". I guess, it's OK for a Baptist to dance as
long as his feet don't move much.
Well, in a fast hour we had more than enough
for the fish'fry and we returned. At the dock, a
group of ladies were waiting for us guys. I
thought how great it was for these gals to
volunteer to clean the fish we brought back. I
was wrong. It was quickly brought to my
attention that in the book of 1st Gina, chapter 3,
verses 8-10 I'll paraphrase as something like
"And the men shall bear the burden of cleaning
their own fishes. All men gladly doing, always
without fail. For unto them' again will be granted
approval of their wives that they'might fish
again." After that 'enlightenment, it was
wonderful having the guys pitch in to clean the
boat and fish. Many hands do make less work.
We split the fillets out evenly amongst ourselves
save for two fish. The men are to bring those two
fish and the women are to bring five loaves to
Preacher Leon for the fry. It's an old trick., We
believe he can pull it off. -Come see it for
yourself on February 7t' at 6:00 pm.

FWC Law Enforcement

Weekly Report
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled from January 21-27, 2005; however, it does not include
all actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
DIXIE COUNTY
Jan. 20, with the aerial support of Pilot Joe Johnston, two gun
and light cases were made within one hour of each other. At 10
p.m., Johnston teamed up with Officer Mike Guy and observed a
light shining in the area of New Pine Landing near the Suwannee
River. Guy made contact with the subject and found him to be in
possession of a .30-06 rifle and a spotlight. Approximately one
hour later, Johnston teamed up with Officers Jeff Swan. and Darby
Butler to arrest two subjects in a hunt club for unlawfully
attempting to take deer at night with a gun and light. They were
observed shining for 45 minutes before apprehension.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY
Jan. 21, Officer Bryan Humphries worked night hunting in the
Hatch Bend area. At approximately 10:30 p.m., a vehicle
approached his position and began using a spotlight in a searching
manner into SRWMD property. One adult male, one female and a
.270-caliber rifle occupied the vehicle. The pair was issued
citations for F.S. 372.99 violations. The firearm and light were
seized.
TAYLOR COUNTY
Jan. 21, Officers Billy Giles and Matt Reynolds arrested two
subjects for attempting to take deer with a gun and light. The two
officers were stationed several miles apart along U.S. 19. They
watched a truck make several slow U-turns and then heard a rifle
shot come from the vehicle. The officers immediately stopped the
vehicle and located a freshly shot .270 rifle. After a short
interview, both subjects confessed to shooting at a doe deer on the
side of the highway. The officers were unable to find the deer the
subjects shot at, but were able to locate an embedded .270 round in
a tree adjacent to the shooting.
Jan. 22, Lt. Bruce Cooper received a phone call from an
informant advising him of a possible poaching case., The subject
stated he found where a deer had been killed the night before and
also found where it had been dragged over a fence line. Cooper
and K-9 Officer Leonard Bailey responded to the site, with K-9
Buddy immediately, picking up a track. After back-tracking the
drag marks for approximately V2 mile, Bailey followed the sign
into a yard. As Bailey entered the yard, two young boys looked at
the officer and muttered, "He found us." Cooper responded to the
home and initiated an interview of the owner of the home. After a
short interview, the father admitted to poaching a doe deer the


night before and had his older
son help him drag the deer
back home. Bailey continued
tracking in the vicinity of the
house and located the fresh
carcass approximately % mile
away. The subject was cited
for taking doe deer out of
season.

Buddy Martin's Weekly Sports Commentary
In Defense of Jacksonville
A long time ago when I was a young sports
writer and never mind the comments about
leather helmets I was privileged to see my first
NFL game. It was ian exhibition between the
Green Bay Packers of
:.. : Vince Lombardi and the
St. Louis Cardinals of a
coach I don't remember.
The football was
interesting, but what I
saw in the lockerroom
was shocking for a kid
journalist who was more
accustomed to seeing
high school and college
Buddy Martin games.
Over there in the
Packers' lockerroom was fullback Jim Taylor,
swilling a beer, with the rest of the six-pack next
to him on the wooden bench. A few feet away,
Paul Hornung was lighting his cigarette.
; These were athletes?
Pro football was, indeed, different. All that
might be mildly interesting, but the point of the
story is not the lore, but rather WHERE the game
was being played way back there in the 1960s in
Jacksonville.
Back then there were no Miami Dolphins yet,
let alone Bucs or Jaguars.
Jacksonville, which also hosted the Gator
Bowl and was about to start a PGA Tour
tournament event that would someday evolve
into The Players Championship, was a
progressive sports city.
'Roll the clock forward about 28 years. I was
back in Jacksonville, this time working there for
:he Florida Times-Union, doing TV
coinmentaries and co-hosting a sports talk show.
In that period, Jacksonville was wrestling with an
idda of going for an NFL franchise, but the idea
seemed to have lost its steam.
-Then one day I met with an official whose
name shall remain anonymous who had been
working on a plan to pitch the NFL folks on what
Jadksonville had to offer the league. His main
selling points were:
1. There were as many TV sets in Jacksonville
at that time 'within 150 miles as there were in
Charlotte, N.C.
.2. TV ratings for NFL games were among
thqhighest anywhere and college football passion
wa" rampant. It worked and helped lay the
groundwork.
.On Sunday, Jacksonville has its day in the
sun although by the time the national media
boys get through hiking their legs and spraying.
their diatribe on it, that may look more like a
rainy, day with heavy clouds.
cThe Jacksonville jokes will abound ...The
cruise ships used as hotels. ("A Motel 6 on the
water.") The smallest market ever to host a Super
Bo% I. ("There was huge gridlock on the streets of
downtown Jacksonville last night after the city's
one traffic light broke.")
The unpleasant odor that sometimes wafts over
the city. ("Now we know what the word 'johns'
stands for in the St. Johns River.")
The cool weather. ("If their slogan really is
'Where Florida Begins,' then where did
Columbus land just south of Cleveland?")
Jokes aside, congratulations to the vision and
leadership of the people in Jacksonville. And
kudos to the fans for their passion, which
ultimately) swung the balance of opinion.
'As for the official whose name I don't want to
give He was a brilliant Princeton grad who
oth-er' ise lacked common sense, because he was
arrested several years later for soliciting an
undercover cop posing as a prostitute.
Quick Jump Starts
,. Riddle me this: If Nebraska has the second
best_ recruiting class heading into Wednesday's
National Signing Day, what was the attraction -


the beautiful weather in Lincoln?
2. While Freddie Mitchell was quick to thank
his hands after a playoff game, sports media guys
would like to thank his mouth for ripping the
Patriots secondary and giving them all something
to write and talk about.
3. I was supposed to be out for next week's
Super Bowl with a broken computer, but after
putting it in a hyperbolic chamber I'm going to be
able to play.
4. Sammy Sosa going to Baltimore will do
wonders for the cork industry in Maryland.
5. By all accounts, new Florida coach Urban
Meyer has been a whirlwind after a late start in
recruiting and might wind up with a Top 10 class.
Short Stuff
Joe Gibbs says he wants to keep racing
forever, but his time in football will be short -
"if we don't win a few more games next year, my
time in football will be real short" ... ... Ex-NFL
coach Dan Reeves, a former Gamecock
quarterback, is a candidate for the South Carolina
AD job, along with Greg McGarity of Florida ...
Incidentally, the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier
open their season Sept. 1 on a Thursday night
ESPN game against Central Florida
Nothin' but 'Net (with help from Buddy's
cyberfriends)
Buddy's e-mail bag
Buddy: Florida Gator fans will be happy to
know that they have hired a great young man to
be their running back coach. I had the pleasure
of coaching both Stanley Drayton and Desmond
Howard in basketball during the middle 1980s in
Cleveland. What is the most amazing thing is that
Desmond and Stanley both won the real
Heisman and the Division III equivalent of the
Heisman in the same year. The odds on that
happening have got to be infinitesimal. Stanley
starred as a running back at Allegheny College.
Stanley is a quality person. He spent some time
in the football program at Penn and is also the
nicest person in the world. I wish him and the
Gators nothing but the best. It is great to see kids
that you have taught and coached make it big,
especially when they are from the inner city. Jim
Wasowski, Rotonda
JIM: Great, indeed.
Hey, Buddy: Just a thought: Wouldn't Freddie
Mitchell have to be able to read to know the
names of the Patriots' secondary?
Stan Morse, Murdock
STAN: Well, yes, or he could ask somebody,

Dangerous Subversive
Believe it or not, at one time he was considered one of the most
dangerous threats to their society. Oh, they knew how to handle
the propaganda from the U.S. State Department and they could
even handle the bourgeoisie of the rich, but this was a bit over the
top as far as they were concerned. What I'm telling you is true
folks, and it happened pretty much like this.
The authorities in East Berlin 1954 were in a tizzy, and that's
something of an understatement. It seems that an American had'
come to the communist country and was undermining what they
considered to be the foundation of their society: the socialist-.:
communist way of life. We really can't call it socialism, since we ;
know now that the only ones who were practicing socialism were
the common people. The proletariat certainly weren't. They %\ ere;
more often than not living high on the hog in their dachas and.-
luxury villas. It was party loyalty at its best (or worst?). But nowv '
this! This American was coming in and giving their people a r lil
taste of what freedom and capitalism were like and that wotild'
never do.
Oh, they had been warned before, that this very dangerbuS~
American would do this to their society. As early as 1937,'th1e
leaders in Yugoslavia noticed how their people were picking up onfr
the ideals and characterizations of this American and they literally.:
banned him and anything about him from their country. Banned...
Out. If you are caught with such horrible American propaganda,'
you'll go to jail. And there were more. In 1938, Italy did the same;
thing: Banned. Out. 1940 Moscow: same thing. 1942,
Czechoslovakia: Banned! 1948 Albania, 1950 Ukraine: Banned. :
Yes, the authorities in Berlin had heard it before, but they justo.
couldn't believe that anything could have such a negative.
influence, especially on their impressionable youth. But you.,
know, with the then-popularity .of big band music, and band'
leaders like Glen Miller and Tommy Dorsey being as popular as.-;
the rock stars of today, they might have believed it. So, once.
again, this American was banned from another country, this time,
East Germany. Banned, forbidden, cast out as a dangerous.,
subversive. Something that his "daddy" was very proud of, mind'.
you.
And whom was this American who caused all this trouble in
the communist world? The one who, in the eyes of the communist
authorities, was one of the greatest threats to their way of life?
Glen Miller? Tommy Dorsey? John Wayne? No, none of these.
It's a Little Known Fact: that the American considered one of the
most dangerous influences on the young communist citizens of the
30s, 40s and 50s was Walt's boy... his creation: loveable little
Mickey Mouse!

REVIEW
continued from page 1

Between singers, the cast performed skits much like those of
he vintage television hit "Hee Haw". It was obvious that this group
f seniors really knows how to have fun and they kept the audience
in stitches with their country comedy. There was one particular
group of young men and women, who we will call the "Cut-up
Gang," who seemed to be drawn to the spotlight and laughter
brought on by their country antics.
I As a special treat and big surprise, the next two guests were
none other than Willie Nelson and Conway Twitty, aka Steve
Bivens. Willie thrilled the crowd with his hit "On the Road Again"
atid Conway brought the women to tears when he started singing,
"Hello Darlin," Both stars would leave the crowd clapping for
more, but they had to get back to Nashville and Steve needed to get
back to his duties as stage hand.
' Following her Dad's act, Stephanie Beach would be the second
female vocalist for the evening. Stephanie sang both contemporary
country and some old favorites that seemed to have no age limit as
young and old alike sang along to the popular tunes. Stephanie's
srntoth and powerful voice gave her thumbs up and a hardy
cltaping of hands. Later in the night Stephanie would be joined by
heibrother Garrett Bivens singing the current hit by Kid Rock and
Cheryl Crow, "I Put Your Picture Away." Wow, now that's one
talented family!
,The nights' "heart throb" came in the form of Brandon
McFarland who belted out obvious favorites of the audience and


cast members. Brandon's energy was contagious and even Ms.
Gloria, Principal Charlotte Lord, School Board Member David
Keen and a few others from the audience couldn't help but join in
on the stage that had turned into a dance floor.
Keeping the pace going full throttle, Steve Bivens, once again
charmed everyone with his talent for impersonation. Deviating
from country for a while, Steve's Blues Brothers act brought the
house to a full roar! He would then recruit three of the Bears best
football players to help out with another oldie-but goodie, "Stop In
The Name of Love," by Diane Ross and the Supremes. The 60's hit
really brought out the feminine side in the boys.
Bringing the evening to a close several of the seniors couldn't
help but show off their singing talents. Dixie's Chicks, Callie Keen
and Brittany Hodge sang a top ten hit while the Soiled Bottom
Boys, John Lambert, Mark Markham, Kris Keen, Clint Cooper and
Bobby Leverett, sang the hit "I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow."
And sorrow it was, as the show came to an end....or did it?
Leave it to the Bears Marching Band "Clean-up Crew" made up
of Earl Mash, Hillary Thornton, Matt Bonanno, Ricky McDowell,
Cris McDowell and Directors Jamie & William Garrett, to go out
with a bang. The seven percussionists hammered out a cadence that
was nothing short of spectacular! What an ending!!!
To the cast and crew and to all the wonderful talent we send out
a big "SALUTE!" for a job well done.


MC Lara Gilbert did an
outstanding job keeping the
audience informed.


The Clean-up Crew, blew the show away with their percussion cadence,
ending the show on an energetic high.


DCHS's own Maddie Kelley
started off the program with her
sweet voice, always a favorite.


The "Soiled Bottom Boys" kept us in stitches as they sang their
"sorrowful" tune.


p'*, ..


:s~.


NFirse Goodbody and Hee Haw's Doc knew just the right medicine to
gioe for a good laugh.


Heartthrob, Brandon McFarland had everyone on their feet dancing to
several top ten hits.

Kyle Thomas strummed his guitar and sang some of country's best
songs to the delight of everyone's ears.

the matter by making a motion to

the mud bogging at Ocean Pond. The
motion was seconded by
Commissioner Land.
Joey Lander stated that it came
before the Board as a variance and
Commissioner Driggers is requesting
to rescind the variance due to the
breaking of the contract. There would
have to be two public hearings for a
new ordinance. It would have to be
advertised and then voted on twice
before it could be-changed.
Chairman Hays opened the floor
for discussion.
Wanda Berry was sworn in by Joe
Hubert Allen, Clerk. Ms. Berry spoke
i'in opposition to the mud bog events.
Attorney, Ray Thomas was present
and stated he was representing Mr.
Norman Eastman in a limited fashion
today. Mr. Thomas stated that this is
improper notice and asked the Board
to review this matter by setting a
K. public hearing. In the interim let Mr.
Eastman talk with the Cassidy's and
Mr. Lander to see if they can resolve
some of the issues before the Board
makes a final decision.
S Commissioner Driggers stated that
Sample time has been allowed and the
Rules have not been abided with. He
Stated that his motion stands and wants
Sit shut down now.
Mr. Lander stated that you can not
shut it down immediately, you have to
hold the public hearings and it must be
advertised.
Mr. Cassidy stated that Mr.
Warhurst could not be present today
due to a death in his family, but he has
more videos. Also, the water is
contaminated and my well is 100 feet
Saway. I know enough about water and
things to know it is a matter of time
before my well will be effected.
Tracy Stevens was sworn in by
Mr. Allen. He stated if they have such
concerns about the water what about
when it was last logged. There were
oil cans left and nobody had animything
to say about that.
Bobby Lytle was sworn in by Mr.
Allen. Mr. Lytle asked what you will
have our kids do. There is nothing else
for them to do in Dixie County. He
stated that Commissioner Driggers
used to play in the mud.
Commissioner Driggers stated that


:there were no homes out there at that
time.
Leslie Alexander was sworn in by
Mr. Allen. Mr. Driggers is correct,
Ms. Alexander stated. Years ago there
were no homes out there. I do not
want to take this away from the kids,
but the majority of the ones that are at
the events are not from the area. They
do not have to put up with the noise,
traffic, and trash in their community
that these events create.
Sue Gallager was sworn in by Mr.
* Allen. She stated that she has lived
here for 15 years and it is keeping her
kids off the roads and out of trouble.
Thomas Sparkman was sworn in
by Mr. Allen. He commented that he
lives close to the pond and does not
mind the noise.


Mary Norris was sworn in by Mr.
Allen. She stated that she is here in
support of the good brought about by
the Mud Bog. Wal-Mart employees
volunteer to work at the events to raise
money for the Children's Miracle
Network. Approximately, $2500 has
been sent to Shands Hospital made
during the Ocean Pond events. She
stated that she doesn't live near the
pond but knows there is nothing here
in Dixie County for the children to do,
'I am for it to continue.
Lauren Lindee was sworn in. She
stated that she appreciated the fact
relating to the children having a place
to go and have fun, but it is not fair to
the residents who live in this area to
take the blunt of dealing with this for
the sake of entertainment for the whole
county. I do appreciate the Board
taking care of the "S-curve". It is now
in good shape and we appreciate it.
Commissioner Driggers stated you
can thank your County Coordinator,
Arthur Bellot. He had this taken care
of.
Scott Howard was sworn in. He
spoke in favor of the events. He stated
that part of the noise being complained
about is coming from other ponds near
Mr. Cassidy's home.
Norman Eastman was sworn in by
Mr. Allen. Mr. Eastman stated that
one of the reasons for this business was
to improve his lifestyle. He said that
his past hasn't been great. I have
donated several thousand of dollars to
several charities and organizations
including Life South. We have had
blood drives. I would like to thank the
various local organizations that have
helped us at the events.
Nelson Osteen was sworn in by
Mr. Allen. Mr. Osteen inquired if it
could be put on the ballot for a vote
and let the people of the county decide.
Joey Lander stated that the Florida
Statutes rules what the Commissioners
can do and decisions are made
accordingly. This is not a referendum
type problem.
Scott Howard stated that mud
bogging has been going on for years
and if it can not be done at Ocean
Pond where are we going to have it. If
you shut down Ocean Pond we will go
somewhere else. We need a legal place
to have it.
Mr. Eastman inquired if the
Commissioners could help him with
control.
Commissioner Hays stated that
Dixie County can not have the Sheriff
Department supporting private events.
Mr. Eastman has hired security for the
site which happened to be officers
from the Sheriff Department.
Commissioner Hays stated that he
grew up here. I know most of you here
today personally. I do not have the
rules in front of me, but one complaint
is the traffic problem. We thought by
allowing camping it would help, but it
turned out to be a bad move on our
part. Another issue is control of the
environment. Two deputies came to
me personally and stated that they
would not go back out there as they
could not deal with the unruly folks;
due to alcohol consumption and they
could not control the environment.
But the biggest issue here is the noise
and I do not know how this can be '
resolved as it will limit the event. I
raced cars myself some time ago. I
know the fun you can have. I love it,
but I know from the other side about
some of the issues in question. We
keep getting calls. I know something
is going on or we would not get calls in.
the wee hours of the night. The EMS
Director doesn't want his staff exposed
to the environment and the sheriff
deputies don't want to go back. This
tells us something. As Commissioners,
we listen to both sides and have to
make an informed decision.
Mr. Lander discussed the rules.
He said the time factor is one of the
issues; an hour after sunset it is
supposed to be closed, but has
continued on well into the late night
and early morning on several
occasions. And other things happen
due to the events;, fences knocked
down, speeding and racing on roads,
trash and other things.
Mr. Eastman commented that he
will hire extra people for security and
the camping we can do without.
Mufflers were discussed. He stated
that they cause problems with
overheating; check with Jimmy
McCall for confirmation of this. As
for the EMS deciding not to come
back, they wanted too much money for
their service.
Commissioner Hays commented,
as far as the kids getting into trouble, I
have a teenage daughter and feel she is
my responsibility and other parent's
responsibilities to keep their children
off the streets and out of trouble.
Commissioner Hays stated that
one weekend a month is not enforced
either, according to the calls.
Ms. Lindee stated that regulations
need to be followed.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
the county attorney was supposed to
bring something back to the Board on
this.
Mr. Lander stated that there is a
motion on the floor.
Attorney Thomas inquired, for
clarification sake, if the motion is to
shut it down.
Commissioner Driggers stated,
yes, that is my motion.
Commissioner Land stated that the
county attorney said he has to check on
it.
Mr. Lander stated, No, the


instruction is for me to publish in the
local paper for two public hearings to
begin the process to shut it down. He
stated that the advertisement would
have to be at least 10 days prior to one
of the hearings.
Motion by Commissioner Driggers
for Joey Lander to prepare to bring it
back for the public hearings, seconded
by Commissioner Land.
Mr. Cassidy stated that several
cases have.been made by the FHP, out
of 14 cases 3 cases were DUI.
The motion by Commissioner
Driggers seconded by Commissioner
Land was carried by Commissioner
Valentine to advertise the public
hearings to begin the process.,
Joey Lander read a draft of a
resolution for Mr. Eastman to abide by,
in the meanwhile, relating to rules at
the Ocean Pond Mud Bog. The main
conditions state that the operation will


be on Saturday and Sundays, every
person will be gone and the gates will
be locked no later than 9:00 PM, no
loud music or cranking of engines
before 9:00AM or after 5:00 PM, and
Mr. Eastman will hire another deputy
to patrol the roads.
Commissioner Hays stated that the
alcohol issue was not addressed in the
resolution.
Some discussion followed about
whether or not the Board would be
able to stop the alcohol and Mr. Lander
stated it is private property, but the
public is to abide by the open
container laws.
A question came up about
admission fees or donations. Mr.
Eastman stated that there has always
been an admission fee and not a
donation.
Commissioner Driggers stated that
until the public hearings are completed
this resolution should be abided with.
Ms. Alexander stated that there are
"private club members" that come ,on
off event weekends to do their own
thing.
Motion by Commissioner
Driggers, seconded by Commissioner
Land to approve the resolution based
upon the revisions and to be prepared
by the County Attorney, Commissioner
Valentine voted in favor-motion
carried.
The first public hearing was
approved by the Board to be held on
January 20 2005.

Status Report was presented.
Mr. Reed stated he would like to
respond to a comment made by Mr.
Norman Eastman regarding the EMS.
We provided two county employees at
$10 per hour for an Advance Unit.
The county was assuming the liability
for those employees to be there. The
deputies were being paid $20 per hour
each. We felt that the EMS employees
deserve the same. Meanwhile, we did
not refuse to go to the events. We
called and Mr. Eastman stated that he
had it covered and we were not needed.
The EMS Department received an
anonymous donation of furniture for
the Old Town facility, This is deeply
appreciated by the EMS and Dixie
County. The new ambulances will be
arriving in February 2005.

no problem according to Mr. Ken
Litzenburger, Refuge Manager.
Arthur stated that during the last
meeting the Board instructed him to
write a letter regarding FAC's position
on court cost shift for DJJ expenses.
He presented two letters, one to be
signed by the Chairman and the other
for all members of the Board to sign,
both addressed to Linda Parish,
Executive Assistant of the Florida
Association of Counties (FAC).
Arthur asked the'Board to choose the
one they wanted. him to send because
he did not feel comfortable sending it
on his signature since the FAC is made
up of elected commissioners. The
Board approved for all commissioners
to sign the letter. The letter is basically
informing FAC that Dixie County
finds the decision of FAC supporting
the cost shift of pre-disposition of
Juvenile Court costs troubling and if
these issues continue to be supported
by FAC Dixie County will have no
choice but to withdraw membership in
the FAC.
Arthur presented copies of the
letters written to Representatives,

handling this.
JOEY LANDER, "COUNTY
ATTORNEY
Mr. Lander informed the Board
that letters have been mailed regarding
concern of the cars and debris on
county right of way.
He stated that he received a copy
of the claim filed by Mr. Miller
regarding injury to his son. This will
be looked into.
New laws have gone into effect in
regards to inmates. Florida Statutes
have set charges of $50 a day for
incarceration. If they bond out, enter a
plea and get out, whether they are
found guilty or not guilty, they will
still be required to pay the charge of
$50 for every day they were
incarcerated. If the fees are not paid a
civil lien will be filed. Mr. Lander
stated he wanted to make the Board
aware of this and recommends that we
stick to the mandate and not get into
the matter of forgiving any liens.
Arthur Bellot informed the Board
that the Little League Project Grant is
overspent. Mr. Bellot recommended
tapping into impact fee funds to
complete the project.
On the Chairman's behalf, motion
by Commissioner Driggers, seconded
by Commissioner Valentine and
carried to approve a resolution to use
impact fees to finish the job.
Arthur stated that we have some
problems with the Corbin Bridge and
recommended pulling the Anderson-
Columbia invoice for retainage on the
project that is included in today's.
vouchers until it can be resolved. The
invoice was not sent to Mr. Frank


Darabi prior to presentation for
payment. This is the normal procedure
since our engineer is our inspector and
contract manager.
Board, approved this
recommendation by Mr. Bellot to
forward the invoice to Mr. Darabi for
processing and comment.
Arthur informed the Board that he
received a call from Ronald Cassidy in
regards to the gas furnace at the jail. It
is in need of some major repairs.
After some discussion, the Board
approved to replace the furnace and it
will have a five year guarantee.
The Board offered their
condolences on the death of Mr. Leon
Bellot, Arthur's father.
Arthur stated that he appreciated
everyone's support and prayers offered
during this time more than you know.

appreciated the Road Department and
all the people involved for the fine job
they have done at the Little League
Field.

approved for a letter to be penned by
Chad Reed on this matter.
Mr. Dowdy inquired about the
2005 calendars that the BCC usually
distributes to the county. He stated
they are a good reference for phone
numbers and such.
The Board informed him that the
grant for the calendars has been
discontinued so they are not available
at this time. Chad Reed and Denise

Newest Driver is

on the Road
By Mike Moore .
Why is this young lady so happy?
No, it is not the ice cream. She is 16 years old
and has passed the test and received her very first
driver's license.
She is Holly Cooper, and no, she does not
attend Dixie County High School. She and her
mother are from Winter Park in Central Florida.
They drove the three hours to Cross City so Holly
could take her test on Friday. Mrs. Cooper works
with FEMA and has to take a trip soon. They
wanted Holly to get the license before Mrs.
Cooper (Sherry) had to leave. An Internet search
told them the Cross, City office for license tests
was open on Fridays, so they came on up.
Now let's see, what road were they on?
Pictured right: Holly Cooper enjoys her ice
cream from Dairy Queen, a reward for passing
her driver's license.


Cherish all your happy
moments: they make a
fine cushion for old age.

Rotarians Hear First-Hand Story From Author
An author who has "found his purpose" spoke to the Dixie
County Rotary Club at the group's weekly luncheon meeting,
Wednesday, January 26.
Bill Williams has had a long and varied' career, working in
politics and government, but considers his main work the telling of-
his brother's story. Williams is the author of several books, but
spreading his account, Ronnie, is his main work now.
It is the tale of his brother, a young man with tremendous talent
as an athlete and artist, who died as a result of alcohol abuse.
"I wrote Ronnie for one, reason and that is to combat underage
drinking and alcohol abuse because that demon will claim and
devastate the life of every gullible young person. It matters not if
.you are rich or poor, good or bad, man or woman, boy or girl,
black or white, Republican, Democrat, or Independent. This
monster will imprison the life, or at least destroy the spirit, of
anyone, impartially, without concern for their personal status in
life simply because its dominating and over-powering grasp shows
no favoritism-there are no exemptions or exceptions."
Williams pointed out that even though the tragedy at
Columbine was horrible, each day in America, as many young
people die from alcohol abuse as perished in that event.
Williams is now sharing the proceeds of his book with Rotary
Clubs throughout the nation.
A total of 19 members and guests attended the meeting.

check to help buy accelerated reader books for the OTES students. The Blue Knights are not only
always ready for a good ride, but ready to help children throughout the North Central Florida area.
As a special treat the children were each given an autographed book about the Blue Knights. They
also got a chance to get a close up look at the bikes.

Log Cabin

Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday Jan. 27th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. What a
great day everyone had. Betty
Salisbury brought in bags of
fabric, embroidery kits and so
much more as she is cleaning
out the closets. We do enjoy
going through everything as
she had fabric you never see
any more.
B.J. Johnson has hand
pieced a king-size Log Cabin
and what a work of art. Now to
get it quilted as the strips are
one and a half inch and that
makes the one-inch when put
together. Evelyn Etheredye
brought her little machine and
worked on poke bonnets,
which we sell here. The king-
size Double Stitch Chain came
out of the frame and Goldie
will hem it at home. A green
.and white Log Cabin was
picked out for the next one.
Everyone has a project going
and we had many visitors that
enjoyed the day.
We have 12 seats on the
bus going to the fair in Tampa
the 15th of Feb, If you want to
go call 493-2801. The cost is
$17.00 and we have passes for
everyone who goes and that
saves paying to get in.
Thelma Schmeelk has
come back from Brooklyn, NY
for the winter. She has been a
member a long time and it was
great to see her again.
Lunch was great, chicken
pot pie, fried sweet potato,
cheese grits. Lots of other
dishes and the dessert is

PLANNING AHEAD
+> HELPFUL HINTS FROM EXPERTS -


Talking With Older Family
(NAPSA)-If you are concerned
that an older driver in your family
is no longer safe behind the wheel,
it may be time to have a conversa-
tion about driving.
While it may be an uncomfort-
able subject, the good news is that
with a little thought and prepara-
tion you can make that conversa-
tion more productive.
Start by doing your homework:
Get the facts. Learn about
the warning signs of driving prob-
lems, observe your relative's dri-
ving and look for patterns of
warning signs.
Discuss your concerns with a
doctor.
Investigate and be prepared
to offer alternative means of
transportation.
To help with the conversation,
experts on older drivers at The
Hartford Financial Services Group
and the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology's AgeLab suggest the
following:
Use a loved one's change in
health or medication as the trig-


Members About Driving
ger to start the conversation.
According to a recent study, older
drivers said that a significant
change in their health was a legit-
imate reason to have a discussion
, about driving.
Be supportive of your older
driver's voluntary efforts to modify
or cut back on his or her driving.
Discuss how driving has
changed and acknowledge that
road conditions and faster, heavier
traffic can make driving more
stressful.
Use news reports about acci-
dents that involve older and
younger drivers as a way to start a
conversation about what it means
to be fit to drive.
Use a recent event, such as a
near accident or getting lost while
driving, as a way to start the con-
versation about restricting or giv-
ing up driving.

American Legion Post 91 News
For those with cable TV or satellite, Arrowhead Film &
Video's award-winning Vietnam documentary In The Shadow of
The Blade will be seen Thursday, February 3, 2005 from 8-10 p.m.
on the Military Channel (formerly Discovery Wings Channel).
This program follows the journey of a restored UH-1
helicopter, "Huey 091" into the backyards of Vietnam veterans and
their families as a catalyst to tell their untold stories.
This month is the Post 91 roadside cleanup (Saturday, February
19th beginning at 8:00 a.m.). If you cannot make the walk, there is
plenty to do around the Post Home, so come on out and help. It can
be fun if you have enough folks to help carry the load. Post 91 is
planning to hold another yard sale in March, so start looking
around for items you wish to donate to help in this fundraiser.
Sunday, February 6th, is Four Chaplains Sunday,
commemorating the four Army chaplains that were aboard the
ATS Dorchester in the hours just before dawn when the transport
was torpedoed and sunk. These four chaplains helped the dazed
and scared young soldiers with life jackets and calming words, and
when the life jackets ran out, gave their own life jackets to others.
"Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for
his friends" (John 15:13).
Legion Post 149 in Newberry has held a Four Chaplains
Service for sdome years and this year the service will be at the
American Legion Post 16 in Gainesville on Saturday, February 5th
at 1:00 p.m., under the direction of Post 149 Legionnaire, Wright
Terry.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, Commander

Pixie County Sig hti gs

"The Russians are coming!"
Something unusual flew into Dixie County recently and an alert citizen
was there with his camera to capture the moment for us. Charles Tucker
;-shot some great pictures of a Russian YAK airplane that landed here,
January 20. He was out and about and looked up to see a very different-
.ooking airplane. He alertly went to the airport to get a closer view. The
'aircraft is a two-person tandem model used for training and was actually
I:uilt in Romania. A businessman and his companion were en route from St.
'George Island to Miami and made a brief refueling stop in Cross City.


Gallagher Offers Hurricane Status Report to Cabinet
Just three weeks after the Department of Financial Services launched its Multiple
Deductible Reimbursement Program, more than 400 checks totaling $600,000 are being
mailed this week, Florida's Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher told Governor Jeb Bush
and members of Florida's Cabinet today.
The money, as appropriated by state lawmakers, will help reimburse storm victims
for deductible losses. The department has received over 11,000 applications in the last 10
days.
Gallagher raised concerns that more than 10 percent of the applications are being
submitted without a social security number, which is needed to process them. Another 5
percent are coming in without necessary signatures.
Gallagher shared the news while providing an update on the progress of insurance
companies paying storm claims and the department's hurricane mediation program.
According to Gallagher, 87 percent of the 1.6 million hurricane claims filed as a result of last
year's four back-to-back storms have been settled. The storms combined have resulted in
estimated insured losses of $21.4 billion to date.
"We have much work left to do, but Florida has come a long way in recovering from the
unbelievable hurricane, season we were hit with," said Gallagher, who oversees the
department. "But the good news is that claims are getting paid and rebuilding is under way."
Gallagher initiated the mediation program to provide a dispute-resolution process free to
homeowners who need help resolving hurricane claims to avoid more costly options, such as
going to court. Nearly 5,000 storm victims have applied for mediation. Of cases completed,
more than 1,300 have resulted in an additional claims payment a settlement rate of 93
percent. Approximately 3,700 cases are still pending.
The department has received more than 200,000 calls for help from consumers seeking
help in understanding their policy coverage or filing a claim.
"We are committed to helping Floridians emotionally and financially battered by these
storms get back on their feet as quickly as possible," Gallagher said.
For more information, consumers can call 1-800-22-STORM.
