To Pipe, Or Not To Pipe...


By Terri La,,g 'r -'. Staff Writer

( nce again the issue of whether or not it would be feasible for
the Town Cros'. City to pipe water to its neighboring communities
has ie_,urfaced and is getting a serious look from local and state
officials and the Suwannee Water & Sewer Board (S\WS). To pipe
water or to build individual water plants, how it can be funded, but
most importiantl, what will be the long-term operational and
maintenance costs; all 'theses questions are being brought to the
table for discussion.
The push seems to be coming from the community of
Suwannee who was recently granted funding through the
Department of En\ironmentalProtection to the tune of 4 million
dollars for the construction of a state of the art water treatment
plant which ;would replace the aging 39 Near old system now in
operanon. The cost to its residents -was estimated to be an
additional $10.00 more per month on their %water bill with the
promise of better tasting, DEP approved water.
Bids were ready to be
sent out for the new X. ..;,
facility until several weeks .. .
ago %%hen the idea of .-.
piping the. water from
Crom City was brought up
by Joe Anderson. Jr. .
Anderson believes that by
piping the water, Cross
Cit's system wouldl d be
able to provide not t only
for Suwannee but
Horseshoe Beach and a
lai e portion of Old A
Toc\ n.
At last week's County
Commission Meeting,
Anderson spoke to the
board about his concerns
with building individuals
plants He noted that it is
ditticult to get good water
anNt %here around the river
basin area in Old Town,
including the growing
business district. .He
indicated that having
after r and sewer would be ."
a selling point for .,. -
prospective new
businesses as well. ,
Anderson was quick to
note. "I'm not promoting
this job ..to get into the i, .. -- .
water pipe laying Water Plant Operator Cricket Spurlin n
business." "I'm here water systeni at the Cross City plant.
because I am part of this
community and only wants what is good for it," he added.
The Commissioners were receptive to the possibilities of piping
%ersus building. Commissioner Buddy Lamb touched on the
environmental benefits of piping water and added that they should
consider piping sewer lines at the same time. Commissioner Alton
Land noted that the majority of his constituents are faced with poor
waterr quality.
Emergency Services Director Chad Reed stated that having fire
hydrants along the roadways would be a big plus for the ISO rating
and could benefit homeowners who carry insurance, by lowering


their premiums.


Yes, the benefits of piped water are numerous, however, Cross
City officials are being cautious and while ready to view all the
various scenarios, they aren't going to jump before testing the
water, so to speak.
Former City Manager Gary Poore, now a volunteer advisor for
the Town of Cross City recently submitted his views and concerns
for the proposed piping. Poore served as lead operator of the Cross
City water plant and sewer plant for approximately 10 years prior
to serving as City Manager for an additional ten years. He knows
the city's systems inside and out and has flagged portions of a
recent study prepared by Mr. Sterling L. Carroll, P.E., from the
Florida Rural Water Association on behalf of the SWS.
Poore notes that a "Dixie County Regional Water System"
capable of serving Cross City, Suwannee, Old Town 'and;
'Horseshoe Beach is a worthwhile objective. However, Poore warns
of the long-term expense in keeping such a plant operational and up
to code as well as requiring numerous inter-local governmental
agreements.
Both Poore and Cassidy's
concerns lie with the burderd
being placed on the City. An.
'.'' '- undertaking of providing water
.- *'for over three-quarters of
T. e. 2 Dixie's population would be a
huge, undertaking, one
I. requiring extra manpower and
continuous maintenance and
upgrades to .the system.
Cassidy added that the City
was willing to look' at the
proposal %ith open eyes and
minds, but will not jeopardize
their existing facility. "Our
First responsibility is to our
Cross City residents," stated
Cassidy. "And we don't want
to make any promises that we
pslwill not be able to keep to the
other folks in Dixie," he added.
T -- Both, Su%. annee and
Horseshoe Beach have been,
required by Florida DEP to
e f. improve their water systems
and a central system would be p
,the answer to their problems,
S but would -it become the
problem down the road?
In a phone interview with
SDon Berryhill of the Florida
DEP, Berryhill stated that it
was his departments desire and
responsibly to also look into
hakes necessary adjustments to the what %%ill be the best long-term
solution to Dixie's water
.issues. .- Could the grant
assigned to SWS be adjusted from the building of a treatment plant
Sto the piping of water from Cross City's plant, "That is a
possibility," stated Berryhill. However he was quick to state that
funding of any project must meet the. guidelines of the department
and would be carefully studied.
The Suwannee Water & Sewer Board will be holding a public
meeting on Monday, March 14th beginning at 6:00 pm in th6
Community Building. This is an important meeting, as it will be
the first of what proves to be many in the decision process of
whether to pipe, or not to pipe.

:Commie reporter takes a cheap shot at our troops
On February 4th, Islamic terrorists in Baghdad captured
Giuliana Sgrena, a reporter for a communist newspaper in Italy
that has vigorously opposed the Italian government's support of the
-U.S. led war in Iraq.
Later that month, Sgrena was released, presumably following
t~he pavment of a large ransom by the It:alian government. Upon her
release, her vehicle was fired upon by American troops while
.approaching a checkpoint, reportedly at a high rate of speed. An
-Italian security officer was killed and Sgrena herself was wounded.
A most unfortunate incident, but such things happen in war
zones. The fact is that a favorite terrorist tactic is to approach a
checkpoint at a high rate of speed in order to get there and do as
much damage as a car load of explosives can do without being
stopped short of their deadly mission. These are suicide bombers, of
which the terrorists seem to have no shortage-a testimony to the
intellect of those who accept such assignments, perhaps, but that's
another matter.
: Nonetheless, Giulliana Sgrena is fielding the opinion that the
American troops deliberately shot at her vehicle because the Bush
administration objected to her government's paying a ransom for
her release. There is, of course, a good reason for not paying
ransom money to terrorists; you rescue one hostage, but you leave
the terrorists with the means to intensify their activities, plus you
encourage further hostage-taking. A sound policy overall, however
it has no bearing on the incident in question,
As for Ms. Sgrena, I have no doubt that her presence in
Baghdad writing stories disparaging America's involvement in
-Iraq, as well as Italy's, was a source of some minor irritation to the
Bush administration, not to mention her own government.
:However, it is an astronomical leap from' being annoyed by a
journalistic urohymenopteron, to a politically motivated assassin-
ation attempt. Giulliana Sgrena could not possibly have been that
important to the Bush administration, though given her penchant
for fanciful reporting, she might choose to indulge such a notion.
Notice the reference to II// Manifesto, the newspaper where
:Guilliana Sgrena is employed, as a communist publication. Please
:bear in mind that, while Italy is not a communist country as such,
'the Communist party is viable and operates openly in Italian
politicsc, as it does in certain other European nations.
S It should have been no surprise, then, that Sgrena's absurd con-
tention would have been published in a communist newspaper. We
need to understand that communists have a very limited perception
:of how things work in the real world. You may recall that Russian
:President Vladimir Putin chastised President George W. Bush for
:"getting rid" of CBS newsman Dan Rather. I certainly hope that
.Mr. Bush took the trouble to explain that Rather did not work for
:the government, nor were his efforts subject to government
:approval. (Granted, Russia is not a communist country at the
:present time; but it was during Vladimir Putin's formative years,
and he no doubt has some difficulty in throwing off the politics he
:was raised on.)


: As for the incident wherein Guilliana Sgrena's car was fired
:upon at a checkpoint, let us hope that Ms. Sgrena's absurd
'accusations are written off as a traumatic reaction to the situation,
'and that some bureaucrat doesn't decide to conjure up a show trial
bfor the American GI's who were just doing their job.

Letter To The Editor
U.S. Postal Service Announces Program to Help Find Jessica
Marie Lundsford
HOMOSASSA, FLORIDA March 2, 2005 the United States
Postal Service started their aid in the search for 9 year old Jessica
Marie Lundsford. Following a press conference, letter carriers and
rural carriers from the United States Postal Service delivered over
42,000 "Deliver Me Home Posters" to every household in 8 zip
codes surrounding the area where Jessica was missing from. Jessica
was last seen on the evening of February 23, 2005 when her
grandmother tucked her into bed. Jessica was wearing a pink
nightgown and white satin shorts. There were no signs of a
physical break-in at the house where Jessica was missing from. The
only other thing missing was a doll from her room.
The USPS hopes that someone will see this flyer and remember
seeing Jessica marie Lundsford or have information about Jessica's
disappearance. People are encouraged to look around their property
and in out buildings or other places on their property where a child
might hide. Anyone with information is encouraged to call:
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-
800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or the Citrus County Sheriff
Office at 1-352-726-1121.
In conjunction with the search, officials from the U.S. Postal
Service, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and National Center for
Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) along with Sheriff
Jeffrey Dawsy, today announced a joint effort to help find
America's missing children. The announcement of the tri-agency
Delivery Me Home Network ws made at an early morning press
conference held at the Homosassa, Florida Post Office. By
combining resources and coordinating efforts, the agencies hope to
strengthen the chances that missing children like Jessica Marie
Lundsford can be found and safely returned to their homes.
When deemed beneficial to a Non-Family abduction or a Lost,
Injured or Missing Child investigation, law enforcement request is
made to a NCMEC TEAM.ADAM representative for a Deliver Me
Home Flyer distribution. A flyer containing critical identifying
information about the child will be printed and disseminated by the
Postal Service to the targeted area requested. The delivery area can
be displayed in neighborhood Post Offices and carried to hundreds
even thousands of mailboxes in a targeted ZIP Code.
"We are so pleased to be a part of this new program", said
Postmaster Mark Latocki, Homosassa, Florida Postmaster, U.S.
Postal Servide. "The Deliver Me Home Network certainly shows
our commitment to the communities we serve, and further
complements our corporate message, "We Deliver".

1. Get at least three estimates
2. Make sure your contractor
is licensed. Get the contractor'sW
license number and verify W
licensure at
http://www.state.fl.us/dbpr/ CaI

ACCIDENT
Continued from page 1
Veneer and involved three vehicles. Cross City Police Officer Thomas Tumlin investigated the
accident and reported the following information.
Sherry Shivley of Cross City was driving in the left lane traveling south when she stopped for a
truck that was making a left turn off US 19. Keva Wynant Wharton of Tallahassee was also traveling
south in the left lane and attempted to pass Shively by turning into the right lane at which time she
struck the tires of a semi truck, driven by Leeman Moore, Sr. of Polk City. When she hit the tires she
bounced back into the Bronco before stopping in the middle of the roadway.
Wharton's passenger Rodney Jones, Jr. was the only injury in the accident and was transported by
Dixie EMS to a Gainesville hospital where he is being treated.
Wharton has been charged with careless driving and improper lane change.
Within minutes of the call to the US 19 accident, Cross City Police and EMS personnel were called
to another accident that occurred at the corner of CR 351 and Barber Ave. Both drivers and their
passengers escaped injury after one driver pulled out from Barber Ave. into the line of traffic on CR
351. That particular intersection is known for being difficult to see the flow of traffic during
courthouse hours, as parking is permitted on both sides of CR 351.
Reminder please slow down to the speed limit of 20mph along this section of roadway, as it is
also a busy pedestrian thoroughfare.
Community Packs the Refuge Friends Program


Over 70 eager attendees packed into the
'second floor of the Cedar Key Library in order to
learn about the formation of the Cedar Keys, the
shell and sand mound of our coastline and the
cultures that built them. Friends of Refuges:
Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys National
Wildlife Refuges sponsored "Shell Cultures of
the Gulfcoast", a free presentation.
The Staff Archeologist from US Fish and
Wildlife's Regional Ecological Services Office in
Atlanta was the guest speaker at this year's
Friends Annual Meeting. Richard Warner's
presentation showed aerial photos of several the
local mounds, a variety of pottery found here,
ancient trade maps, houses built by the cultures
of 600 years ago, fishing and hunting techniques
The Boyd Report


and more. Warner's main point throughout was
that the indigenous cultures were not primitive as
some think, but instead, complex, sophisticated
peoples who developed ceremonialism, art, and
technology.
After the program, the Friends group was
honored with certificates of appreciation from the
Fish' and Wildlife Regional Director Sam
Hamilton for their work during the refuge
anniversary celebration on Seahorse Key in July
of 2004. President Rebecca Roberts told of plans
to advocate and support the refuge for 2005.

I LOCAL TRAVEL AGENCY OFFERS GROUP CRUISES
Whether you're planning a wedding, family reunion, convention or group vacation, chances are you'll want to host your
event on a cruise ship if local Travel Agency ABBA has anything to say about it. They've been busy booking group cruises by touting the
incredible value customers received onboard.
A home-based group of Travel Agents, Claude & Carol Bowens and Peg Ashcroft, through mega-host Global Travel International (GTI)
of Maitland, Florida. ABBA is happy to have found their niche in the travel market. Claude is retired from Construction, Carol works at
Chiefland's Wal-Mart and Peg is Assistant Manager at Smokers' Express in Trenton.
They report, "We love selling group cruises. People have such a great time and they always come back with a smile on
their face. The benefits of group cruising are incredible. "While all your meals, snacks, beverages, entertainment and shipboard
activities are usually included on just about any cruise ship afloat, groups receive a few enticing extras. Some of the cruise lines offer
groups special discounted rates, an onboard complimentary cocktail party, complimentary Champagne and chocolates, a free group
photo and depending on the size of the group, free meeting rooms. The cruise line will also seat the entire group together, as opposed to
'. ^ dining separately when clients book the same cruise individually.
ABBA attributes their success to being affiliates with such a large player in the travel industry. GTI's relationship with top
r suppliers in the cruise world, including Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruise Lines, built throughout 4-
10 years of success and 35,000 Independent Agents, allows GTI Travel Agents like themselves to have access to great prices that they
in tum can offer to their clients.
"Cruising is such a great way for people to enjoy each other," says ABBA. "They can be together as much as they want, and go off on
'their own too. Just about everything's included in one price; you only have to unpack once; and you get to share beautiful, exotic
destinations and delicious, gourmet meals together. It's the perfect choice for a group vacation or convention.
"Groups perfect for group cruising include business seminars, weddings, family reunions, high school reunions, church
groups/synagogues, corporate' incentives, family & friends, senior clubs/organizations, bachelor/bachelorete parties, nonprofit X
Organizations, men's/women's groups, client appreciation, sports teams, spring break student groups, and more. Their group motto is
"WE HAVE YOUR BENEFIT IN MIND". Call ABBA TRAVEL AGENCY for more information at (352) 542-7484 or (352) 463-2905.

Behold the Tabernacle of God
"Purifying By Obedience"
"Seeing ye have purified your soul in obeying the truth through the
spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another
with a pure heart fervently." (1 Pete- 1:22) I the Day of the Lord, say this is
an hour when God is calling His people to lay hold of a Ionian life, and
seek for His fullness. There are many aspects of our life being brought into
focus under the spotlight of His truth, while the spirit is dealing with us
and making us ready for that'which is to soon be made manifest. Now we
are impressed with the following thought: God is going to inhabit a
temple, not a church. I the Day of the Lord, say the church, ekklesia,
meaning that which is called out, is only a step in the process of becoming
the temple of the Lord. The temple refers to those who have been gathered

4-Pets Sake
Therapy pets make excellent listeners for young children
learning to read. As a student informed me some time ago, therapy
dogs do not laugh at you when you make a mistake. He also said
they do not call you stupid or make fun of you if you can't
pronounce a word or the time to finish a sentence seems to take too
long.
Lucky is a certified therapy cat that has disabilities. He does
not have a left eye, his nose never fully developed, and he has a
cleft palate. Lucky swaggers when he walks because of a bottom
heavy deformed torso. Once a month Lucky visits students at
Jefferson Elementary School in Sherman TX and he does go to
TMC McIntire Ct. for Rehab in Denison. He loves working with
deaf students. Some totally deaf students can see him purr and feel
the vibrations. Donna Francis, a teacher of the hearing impaired in
Sherman, T. shares her life with Lucky.
Karen Allen, PhD, who is lead author of a study that shows
pets are good for our health states, "The findings demonstrate that
pets can buffer reactivity to stress". Recent studies indicate that
children exposed to cats and dogs during their first year of life
have a lower,'frequency of allergies or asthma.

was glad when thiei said ,uto me, let iusgo into the' house of tlw LORD." Psaln. 122:1










Abundant Life and Living
St. John 10:10 (KJV) Jesus said, I am come that they might have
life more abundantly....Many of us have learned that hate, envy,
hostility, stress and anger cause pain, and diseases to attack our
bodies, which bring about sickness and death. It is written, "My
people die for the lack of knowledge. We may
be highly blest with material things, we may be
rich financially; we may have family,
many friends and loved ones, but we can't live
abundant life if we are stressed out, hateful and
evil.
All of the above-mentioned traits will cause
us to lose our life. We, must not charge
God with our own neglect and lack of
knowledge to stay peaceful, loving, kind,
Lucille forgiving, happy and stress free; which will'
Stockton help us to live abundantly and enjoy a
healthy long life. God gave his human family
five senses, and freedom of choice when we were created. We are
created too precious to let Evil contaminate our mind and bodies. It
is our duty to love ourselves, take good care of our bodies we,
only have the one.
-We cannot be replaced, so be good to yourself. Also,
share yourself, and be real good to others.

Pierced
;It seems as though everyone's getting something pierced these
days. And we aren't just talking about kids: lots of older folks are
gdeting in on the fad too.
-But piercing isn't anything new; other cultures have practiced
the, art of body piercing for thousands of years.
Perhaps the body piercing that has had the greatest impact on
humanity happened in Jerusalem almost 2,000 years ago. But long
before it happened, a preacher prophesied that it would take place:
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed
for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was
upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Somehow, when Jesus' body was pierced with nails and a
spear, it brought us peace. What this means is that since the Garden
of Eden man has been trying to hide from God because we feel too
guilty to approach him. Even though he has been searching for us,
we still try to run and hide. So when Jesus was executed, God
could point to his death and say, "see. what I allowed to happen so
you would know the full extent of my love for you." Stop running
from me, and let me be your father."
It doesn't matter what you are guilty of, he still wants to have a
relationship with you.. You can't be guilt',' enough for God to hate
you, so stop running from him and let him heal your broken life.
A message brought to you by the folks at the Cross City
Church of Christ-


Gospel Sing

The Word Made
Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
Continued from last week. I
ttle son of man, say in Jesus Christ
al the fullness of the Divinity
dwells bodily; and many other
things besides.
There by the "Son" is meant
tl4e Human of the Father, from
these things it follows that the
Divinity and the soul of the Son of
dod, our savior are not distinctly
two, but one and the same. The
Sbn of God is the Human of God
tle Father, is fully shown above;
fOr what else did Mary, the mother,
bring forth than the Human in
which was the Divine from the
Bather? Hence from nativity He
was called the "Son of God", for
t e angel Gabriel said to Mary: -
The Holy One that shall be born of
thee shall be called the Son of
god, and the Holy which was born
from Mary was the Human in
which was the Divine for the
Father. I the son of man, say before
ttie world was created the trinity of
God was not the scared scripture
teaches that God is one, and reason
enlightened by the Lord sees it
there and thence. But that God was
triune before the world was
created, the Sacred Scripture does
nbt teach, and reason enlightened
tlere fore does not see. What is in
David concerning the Son, "This
day have I begotten thee," is not
from eternity, but in the fullness of
time; for the future in God is
present thus today; in like manner
as in Isaiah: Unto us a Boy is
born, unto us a Son, is given,
whose name is God, Hero, the
Father of eternity. I the son of man,
say what rational mind, when it
hears that before the creation of the
world there were three, Divine
persons called the Father, the Son,
a)1d the Holy Spirit, dose not say
jyithin itself while thinking of
them, "What is meant by a son
born from God the Father from
eernity? How could He be bom?
And what is the Holy Spirit
i.roceeding from God the Father
through the Son from eternity?


And how could He proceed and
become God by Himself'? Or how
could a person beget a person from
eternity? And both produce a
person? How can three Persons, of
which each is God, be conjoined
into one God, otherwise than into,
one person? And yet. this is
contrary to theology, and this to
that. Please stay up with me the
next four weeks. I want to show
you something, Love you.

Bhddy Martin's Sports Commentary
About The 'Florida Swing'
on the PGA Tour
A long time before there was an official PGA
Tpur, there was' the St. Petersburg Open
Ir[vitational ... and the West Palm Beach Open
Invitational ...and the Greater Jacksonville Open.
The so-called "Florida
Swing" didn't really even
exist in 1.958 when Arnold
Palmer won in St. Pete and
the next year when he won
the West Palm Beach Open
Invitational.
It was only with the
emergence of golf's two
biggest superstars, Palmer
rand Jack Nicklaus, in the late
y Martin 1950s that the game began to
explode dn
t, America's television screens and proliferate on
tife Bermuda grass greens of Florida.
Today we hav toe back-to-bck-to-back-to-back
PGA Tour events in the Sunshine State and there
ate so many other professional golf events in our
state that we virtually have two seasons. One of
tlem, called "The Florida Swing," began last
vieek in Miami.
a There is so much more yet to come that it': an
embarrassment of riches, including the Funai
Classic at Walt Disney World, Franklin
T7empleton Shark Shootout in Fort Myers,
Chrysler Championship in Tampa, Outback Pro-
Am in Tampa, etc.
From the Doral, to the Honda, to Arnie's
place and then culminating with the almost-major
Players Championship in Ponte Vedra, the
"clorida Swing" is to golf as the playoffs are to
oher major sports the countdown to
tie championships.
Everything points toward Augusta and the
l4asters, the opening salvo for a run at the
majors, and by the time they've reached Ponte
iedra, they've got to be smiling. That's a long
way for the days of the St. Pete Open.
Without Palmer and Nicklaus
becoming Florida residents, however, this might
not have ever happened.
A"'rnie started it by playing in St. Pete, and7
West Palm, then as a regular in the Citrus Open
in Orlando, which eventually became his own
event at Bay Hill.-
Nicklaus moved to Palm Beach from Ohio
and influenced the game in this state heavily,
including the .time in 1971 when 'he.-
helped convince the PGA, to '-move the fourth.
major of the year to the first major.
The PGA was played at the PGA National in
Palm Beach Gardens that year. Gary Player was
the houseguest of Nicklaus and they wound up
contending for the title. "You can't beat the rent,"
Player said, "and you can't beat the host, either."
He was right:-Nicklaus won.
Florida has been good to The Golden Bear
anod,Jack has ,been. equally good for
our state.
Nicklaus was a big supporter of the. Dofal.
no \ called the Ford Championships., whichh
began in 1962. He won it twice. He also won the
Honda twice when it was called the Jackie
Gleason Int.errary Classic.
Nicklaus ne\er won ,in Orlando, before or
after it was at Arnie's place (Palmer only won it
once there, at Rio Pinar Country Club). But Jack
did make his mark with three wins at The Players
Championship, starting when,it was played in.
Atlanta, and again when it was played at
Inv'errary and finally at the old Sawgrass Course
in Ponte Vedra.
Counting the. PGA in 1971, that's eight

P.


victories in Florida for Jack.
So it has been a great partnership.
So thanks, Arnie and Jack, for all the support
in our start. Hopefully it
can be sustained:
.Today, with the proliferation of some.nearly
50 official events on the PGA Tour, golf is no
longer a novelty. Much of the marquee has
vanished from events once considered key
venues. In a way, success is choking the PGA
Tour, because dance cards are rarely filled with
all the big names.
It's good to see some of the big boys back for
Doral because it's getting to be a.rare occasion
when they all meet. Last year there were only
eight events four of them major
championships when Tiger Woods,
Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Ernie Els all
played in the same tournament.
Woods now lives in Orlando and Vijay in
Ponte Vedra. Maybe they could read up on their
history and follow in the footsteps of Arnie
and Jack in stumping for their home state.

3. If Martha Stewart can go to prison and

Mike Tyson.
4. Condolences to the Nicklaus family for
the loss of their 17-month-old
grandson, son of Steve and his wife,
who drowned tragically while under the
supervision of a nanny.
5. 4. So long to Bucs quarterback
Brad Johnson arid thanks for the Super

Have you complained to your doctor?
Do you know what the number #1 complaint made by Americans -'
at doctor's office visits? It's lack of energy! According to surveys
done by the American Medical Association, Chronic fatigue and just
being tired all the time is the number 1 complaint heard by physicians,-
in America today. That's exactly why I developed Active 8. It really
does help.
Read'rnore at our web site,
Iman M.D. www.myactive8.com '

Row Faster!
Well, he was born Ole Hakonsen, but that only lasted until he
was five years old. That's when his parents came to this country
and they took the surname of the farm where they worked. When
the family came across to this new promise land onra 'freighter, it
was clear even then what interested Ole the most. On that journey
across the ocean, he spent all his free time in the engine rooi'.
When others were enjoying an ocean cruise, Ole was getting dirty
and greasy in a hot, steamy room, five decks below the sunshine
and fresh air. His parents settled in Wisconsin and sent Ole :to'
school. But he left grade school early. It was too easy for him and
his mind wandered.
He left home and worked in factories up and down the MidweSt'
from Pittsburgh to Chicago. In 1900, at the age of 23, Ole returned-
to Wisconsin and set up a pattern-making shop in Milwaukee. HI;
didn't meet with great success as a pattern maker, but he did gain"
some local notoriety as an engineer. And that's not all. He Iwh"
also becoming known as an eccentric.
You see, Ole had read about the internal combustion engine
when it was still in the experimental stages in Germany, being used'
on the first horseless carriages back in the 1890s. Now that he hlik
a shop of his own, he wanted to build some too. So, for lhs'
business he did engineering odd jobs, but in his spare time he built
horseless carriages. He test-drove them, too up and down the
normally quiet streets of Milwaukee, much to the consternation of
his neighbors.
Now, the office manager of Ole's little pattern-making shop,
was a lovely lass named Bess Cary, and as you might guess, she
and Ole fell in love and became engaged in 1906. One of the
things that Bess loved was going on a romantic picnic and not
just any picnic. No, a picnic on an island on a lake.
Well, Ole, eager young man that he was, wanted to make the
picnic even more memorable and volunteered to row back to shore
to fetch his beloved some ice cream, one of Bess's favorite treats.
As he rowed five miles across the lake under a 90-degree sun, he
had a problem: The ice cream was melting. Now Ole was no
slouch, but no one could row that fast.
That's when it hit him the idea that would make his name
synonymous with the product that he invented, and would
eventually bring far-flung reaches of many parts of our country
into easy access of millions. He thought to himself, "Now why
can't I put an engine on. a boat just like the one I built for my
horseless carriage?" And that's exactly what he did.
It's a Little Known Fact that the first successful outboard motor
was built because a young man in love wanted to bring ice cream
to his beloved, who was waiting for him on an island, out in the
middle of a lake. Remember that the next time you see aii
outboard motor with this name on it: Ole Evinrude!

of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The soldier is one of more than 270
troops of the 84th Engineer Battalion (Heavy) (Combat) who was
deployed.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military
operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces and
coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq.
Mission objectives focus on force protection, peacekeeping,
stabilization, security and counter-insurgency operations as the
Iraqi transitional governing bodies assume full sovereign powers to
govern the peoples of Iraq.
Members from all branches of the U.S. military and
multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq's
economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and
preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full authority
and responsibility in defending and preserving Iraq's sovereignty
and independence as a democracy. Davis, a senior health care
specialist, has more than nine years of military service.
He is the grandson of Harold L. Davis of Perry, Fla.
His wife, Ruth, is the daughter of Charlotte Karns of Perry.
The sergeant is a 1995 graduate of Taylor County High School,


Perry.

include an "indoor" flea market and "outdoor" family activities,
with raffle drawings every hour beginning at 9 am and a 50/50
drawing at 2 pm.
Sack lunches will be available for a donation of $3. Plan to
fellowship with old and new friends on the grounds while treating
yourself and your family to a picnic lunch of a beef sandwich, soda
and chips. Extra sodas will be available for a donation of 50 cents.
There will also be a "Baked Goods" sale table loaded with yummy
home made sweet treats to eat. All proceeds will go to assist the
treasury of the Legion.
The Legion building and grounds are located on US HWY 129,

Springhouse Quilter's News
Saturday, March 19, has been designated as National Quilt
Day. Springhouse Quilter's Guild has been invited to host a
celebration of quilting at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop located in
the old Coca Cola building on North Main Street in Trenton.
There will be a variety of quilts on display that have been made
by local quilters. Springhouse Quilters will sponsor several
different demonstrations on different quilting projects and new
quilting tools.
Raffle tickets will be available for $1.00 on a black and white
quilt made by Springhouse quilters which wi!l be raffled off during
the November 11 and 12 Quilt Show and Trenton's Down Home
Day festival. The black and white quilt is a large quilt that was
pieced by Onnie Mae Fowler and a special group of Springhouse
quilters, some of which were winter visitors from the cold weather
area. The quilt was then hand quilted by yet another group of
Springhouse members.
The beginner classes for new Springhouse members are
continuing. Lois Scott, assisted by Anna Gilliam, conducted the
March 3 quilt classes on the technique of assembling convex and
concave curves. This week, Beverly Shobe and Michel DuMont will
be teaching paper piecing to the beginners. This will prepare them
for making the required house name tag that Springhouse
quilters wear during their meetings, or face the possibility of being
fined if the nametag is not worn.
Happy quilting.
Anyone needing information on Springhouse Quilter's, may call Kay
Fales, 490 7909 or Lois Scott, 463 2207.

annual auction & we raised $164.00. Thanks to Margie Barto,
Donna Thompson, & Mary Krus for serving Another Way on our
behalf for another year. Also Marilyn Surles will serve New Life

Commission Minutes, Regular
Meeting of January 20', 2005
presented for approval.
Commissioner Hays inquired of Joey
Lander, County Attorney, if he had
read the minutes.
Mr. Lander recommended the
minutes for approval.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the minutes as
presented.
OCEAN POND ISSUE
DISCUSSED
Commissioner Hays stated that he
recognizes several people attending
and that he would like to break from
the agenda to address the matter of the
Ocean Pond issue.
Billy Keen informed the Board that
he and Joey Lander talked prior to the
meeting today. According to the
LDR's if someone has a complaint it
should be filed directly with the zoning
official (Billy Keen) and then I will get
with Joey Lander, County Attorney, for
review. If it can't be resolved it goes
to the circuit court.
Joey Lander stated that a special
.exception is granted or denied by the
Board of Adjustment. At that time,
there is a 30 day time frame for anyone
to appeal the BOA decision. The
appeal is filed in circuit court. After
that 30 day time period there is no
granting or denying of that special
exception. Any person that has a
problem should send a letter of
complaint to the Building and Zoning
Official, Billy Keen. If a violation is.
found, a letter will be sent to the owner
of the special exception stating those
violations. If it is not corrected it can
be filed with the Circuit Court as a 2nd
Degree Misdemeanor Case (Criminal).
If the court finds them guilty of the
violation the penalty will be assessed
according to the law. Joey read from
the LDR's regarding adjoining
property owners. You can file in
circuit court for an emergency hearing
if a nuisance is being caused to your
residence. The court will decide issues
relating to the nuisance.
Laura Lindee inquired about the
issue with the resolution/ordinance.
Joey stated that, since the last
meeting, he has examined the LDR's
closely and it states that a special
exception only needs to be approved
by the Board of Adjustment by
resolution, an ordinance wasn't
needed.
Dot Cassidy came forward to inquire
about the regulations. She asked if
Resolution 96-16 is the only thing that
a complaint can be filed on.
Joey Lander stated that she could
also file a nuisance complaint with the
circuit court.
Dean Chambers asked why the
county couldn't pass an ordinance to
help them out of the situation.
Billy Keen stated that no ordinance
can be passed in conflict of the LDR's.
Joey Lander stated that the LDR's
does not limit to just the owner of the
property with the special exception.
The person out there on the property
running at 10:00 PM can be charged
with a violation.
Ms. Lindee stated that they are in
this predicament due to the Board of
Adjustment (the Board of County
Commission) not investigating
enough. Hopefully, you the current
BOA will be more hesitate to approve
special exceptions. This is the reason I
would like to see the study done back
in 1996 for this special exception.
Donald Warhurst came forward and
stated that his concern is the quality of
life and the probability of water
pollution this is being created in the
Ocean Pond area.
Commissioner Hays stated that he
did talk with a representative from
SRWMD and they assured him that it
would take a lot of oil being dumped to
cause a water problem to the nearest
neighbor.

$20 million for acreage in Dixie
County.
After some discussion, the Board

meet with Frank Darabi and Ms.
Lovelace for further discussion on this
matter.

AND WATER CONSERVATION
DISTRICT

the Poster Contest has been taken care,
of; Arthur Bellot and others made
donations toward it. She thanked the

K.C. AND CAPTAIN CAMPBELL,
DEER CREEK SUB-DIVISION
RESIDENTS
Ms. Campbell informed the Board
that she is here regarding concerns and
questions about keeping animals in
residential/rural areas of Dixie County.
She said it is her understanding that
there are no restrictions as to how
many animals or types of animals you
can have on any certain acreage. We
have a nuisance situation including
animal noises and excessive waste
causing terrible odors. We are
concerned about the waste getting into
our water. We have questions about
the county leash law and we can not
get a deputy to check out the situation.
We only needed a report and they
would not write a report.
Billy Keen commented that Ms.
Campbell is correct; we donot have a
restriction on the number of animals
per lot or acre. There is a setback of
100 feet from the property line on all
sides.
Ms. Campbell stated they can not
even open the windows on a nice day.
The noise and smell is terrible. Mr.
Campbell said that he would like to sit
on his porch, but the odor and noise is
so bad he can't.
Joey Lander stated that they could
file a nuisance case in circuit court for
an emergency hearing.
Ms. Campbell asked if the
Commission could- adopt an ordinance
limiting the number of animals per
acre.
The Board instructed Billy Keen to
research how surrounding and rural
counties address this type of issue and
bring it back to the Board at a later
JERRY OBRIEN
Mr. Obrien inquired about leasing
property at the Cross City Airport. A
friend wants to lease a portion of the
airport for a business:
Commissioner Driggers stated that
Dixie Aviation has the lease and-it is
under their control. But the Board has
sites for businesses to use near the
airport in the industrial park area.
Commissioner Hays commented that
the county could not afford the upkeep
of the airport and it went up for bid as
a lease.
Joey Lander stated that he could
offer to sub-lease a portion of the
property from Dixie Aviation.
The Board instructed Billy Keen to
get with Mr. Obrien and show him the
sites that are available at the industrial
park.
JOE SPRADLEY, HORSESHOE
BEACH MARINA OWNER
Mr. Spradley informed the Board
that he is loosing business and if
something doesn't happen soon he is
going to be in real trouble. On low
tide boats can not get in and out of the
canal to his marina. It is really hurting


his business. These boaters are not
going to continue to sit there 2-3 hours
and then drag their boats back through
the mud.
Commissioner Valentine stated that
he is aware of the problem. FEMA
was asked to dredge it, now Natural
Resources Conservation Services
(NRCS) is involved. They have set
aside $150,000 for the project which
appears to be an inadequate amount.
Arthur Bellot stated he has met with
FEMA numerous times. They met
yesterday again. FEMA was
considering dredging all three (3)
canals. NRCS is only going to dredge
the main channel. FEMA has a 95/5
match and NRCS is going to be a
75/25 match. Spoil is the problem.
When you have to load and haul the
spoil to another site $150,000 doesn't


go far. The Army Corps of Engineers
are involved, potentially in permitting.
Frank Darabi was present and asked
the Board to declare this an emergency
project and approve for him to do a
cost estimate. He stated that this will
save time and allow him to get with
NRCS to see if they can pay for the
project. We have an approved spoil
site left over from the 1993 dredging.
Motion by Commissioner Valentine,
seconded by Commissioner Driggers
and carried to declare the canal project
an Emergency due to rescue boats not
being able to get in and out now on
low tide if needed, and deep water
vessels can not get in and out on low
tide. Frank Darabi is to go ahead with
the cost estimate.
DICK EDWARDS, COMMUNITY
PROGRAMS CONSULTING
Mr. Edwards presented the Dixie
County Grants Status Report dated
February 3, 2005. He discussed the
2004 Hurricane Damage Assessment
& Housing Recovery Program, the
CDBG Disaster, Recovery Initiative,
and the CDBG 2005 Housing
Revitalization Program.
Septic permitting problems from the
Health Department were discussed.
Time is of the essence. The CDBG
2005 Housing Revitalization Funds
must be spent by April 1It, 2005 in
order to qualify for an additional
$750,000 for the 2005-06 CDBG
funding cycle.
Commissioner Hays stated that he
had spoken with the Health
Department yesterday and Arthur
Bellot emailed Sable Boiling about the
matter. One septic permit has been
issued and hopefully' we will have
quicker response.

Beach Water Plant Grant. The Town

FRANK DARABI, COUNTY
ENGINEER
Mr. Darabi stated that aside from the.
new waste facilities Ms. Lovelace
discussed, we need to solve the
problem with the transfer station. A
cover needs to be put on it. It is going
to cost the county between $150-
180,000 for the cover. The Board
needs to discuss it and give me
direction' in order to respond to the
DEP situation. You need to consider
"door to door collection" in your
discussion; because this is the next
step in the future.
The storm water repairs at the C & D
are almost completed. Joe Ruth and
his crew have done a great job. There
are some high spots that will be fixed

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 3rd at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. We want to thank the newspapers in our
area for all they have done for us since October 7, 1983 when we
became a club. Terry Whitt from the Citizen covered us for many
years as well as Wanda Rader and now we have Mike and Ken
who come out when. we need them. Marian Blitch who works for
the Levy County Journal is doing a great job as well as Karen
Voyles and Gary Kirkland from the Gainesville Sun. However, it
was Gary who came over in 1995, wrote and article about us
needing a log house builder, someone read it, Bob Busch called
and became our builder. We have always been grateful for Gary's
article.
We have kept all the articles as part of our attempt to keep the
.history of the museum. Again thanks to the Citizen, the Journal
and Advocate, the Beacon and the Williston Pioneer for helping us
with all our weekly articles.
Quilting goes on each week as our members from Illinois will
soon have their quilt finished and we can start another one. They
usually quilt two while they are here for the winter.
Next Thursday we will have about 40 from then Villages who
want to come over and visit and have lunch with us. March and
April will be a busy time for us and we do enjoy all our visitors.
Lunch included chicken & dumplings, sweet potato casserole,
cabbage casserole, fresh bread, lots of salads and oh such desserts!
Twenty-nine members were present. -W. Home

Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, iortaa Inursaay, March L0, .WOb


By TIerri Laxngbrd Staff Writer
Last Saturday, March 5th was a horse lovers dream as 79
horses and their riders gathered at the Annual Suwannee River
Youth Fair Horse Show. Like last year the winds were strong
throughout the day, causing some riders to cancel as the winds
spooked their horses.
The day began with a Quiz that tested the riders' knowledge of
showmanship and sportsmanship. All the riders deserved an "A+"
for sportsmanship as groups from Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy
counties saw no boundaries and encouraged all their fellow riders
to do their best.
Riding under the Dixie banner were Jr. Division: Arialle
Spencer, Vonice Watson, Caylan Davis, Kayla Petty, Haley Hiers,
Dalton Long, and Logan Hodge. In the Sr. Division were: Jessica
McClain, Joanna Joyner, Tonya Harding, Teri Pierce, Taryn
Hodge, Felicia Blumenberg, Robert Carter, Page Corbin, Jessika
Williams, Kayla Turner, and Whitney Rollison.
The morning hours brought out the best in the Performance
category. Judges had a difficult time deciding the winners of this
year's best handlers and best behaved horses.
Erika Drummond of Chiefland would take home -the Jr.
Performance Grand Champion trophy while Shelby Mills also of
Chiefland would take home the Jr. Performance Reserve
Champion trophy. The Sr. Division champs for 2005 are Teri
Heberling of Chiefland, earning the Grand Champion trophy and
Tessa Masker of Williston taking home the Reserve Champion
trophy. Congratulations ladies!
The Dixie group really excelled in the Speed Division taking
several first and second place ribbons in both the poles,and barrel
racing. The power of these horses and skills of their young trainers
were most impressive.
Scores totaled Dixie brought home both the Grand and Reserve
Championships in the Sr. Speed Division. Kayla Turner-Grand and
Felicia Blumenberg-Reserve. Not to let the older riders get the
best of the best, Logan Hodge brought home the Grand
Championship in the .Jr. Speed Division with his Chiefland
neighbor, Erika Drummond taking home the Reserve
Championship. Congratulations to you all!
Many thanks to Joel and Kathy Layfield for, once again,
coordinating a great show. They would like to take the opportunity-
to thank ALL their helpers and all the riders for participating.
While it was a long day, lasting from 8:00 am until 7:30 pm, it was
a great one filled with enthusiasm and excitement.

Dixie County



Sightings

HELP!
This week the Advocate staff has been
totally stumped by the two photos brought in
for our Sightings column; so we need your
HELP!


I didn givee a hoot about Dixie County until I read about it
in tIth Dixie County Advocate.


The tirst picture is courtesy ot Mike Gantt. Mike caught this
unusual looking fish on the 26th of February in one of the canals in
Horseshoe Beach. Even Horseshoe's marina owner and
experienced guide, Joe Spradley, could not shed any light on What
the creature from the sea was.
Hope you didn't eat it before you found out what it was, Mike!-.
The next entry comes from Old Town resident, Roy Davidson.
Roy lives in the Forest Hills subdivision and came across this
"clump" of fungi in his yard. He wasn't sure if it was in the
mushroom family or just a fungus ....do any of you know?
If any of you botanist or oceanographers know the answer to our
"what is it" questions, please contact us at through one of the
methods below.
The Dixie County Advocate is actively seeking unique
information for the Dixie County Sightings column. Call or send
your Sightings in Dixie County, to 352-498-3312 or email the
picture and- information to news@dcadvocate:net.
