Fletcher Community

Named Florida Heritage Site
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
S Last Saturday, March 19th, 2005 the pioneer community of Fletcher was honored, with the
placement of a historical marker, naming it as a Florida Heritage Site, bringing its rich history to
residents and travelers alike.
Research by Evonne Valentine Cline on behalf of the Dixie County Historical Society, was
instrumental in the state's recognition of the community which encompassed a large portion what is
now known as Old Town's First District.
Dixie County Commissioners donated the site to place the marker for public viewing at the First
District Community Building on SR 349N. While the community technically sits across the street and
down the road from the community building, its placement at the center gives travelers an easier view
of the marker and parking space.
The marker was shipped to Anderson Columbia where it was kept in safekeeping until just before
the unveiling this past weekend.
Dixie Monument's Ben Barber
along with 1st District
Commissioner Buddy Lamb
secured the marker in its place of
..honor.
The purchase of the marker
came from a generous donor who
wishes to remain anonymous.
Florida was admitted to the
union on March 3, 1845. It was
S the twenty-seventh state to join
the union. Madison County
extended from the Florida State
line to the Gulf of Mexico from
the time it was formed in 1827
until 1856 when the lower
portion was divided into the

Marching Bears Band

To Don New Look In

2005-2006 Season
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County High School Marching Bears
.. Band will be donning a new look next year after
S-, .- ..- .. getting much-needed funds for new uniforms from
.,",:.. the Dixie District School Board earlier this month.
-. ', DCHS Band Director, Jamie Garrett, was
Overwhelmed by the response from Superintendent
SBennett after asking the Board for a donation
towards the $16,000 needed to outfit the band;
receiving an answer of, "Go-ahead and order the
uniforms, we will make sui'e the bill is paid."
S Garrett, a first year teacher has impressed both
the band parents and DCHS Principal Charlotte
Lord. Lord noted that Garrett has brought
; enthusiasm back into the music program and is a
true role model for her students.
With talent and hard work, Garrett .arid the
Marching Bear Bamd members have also brought
back pride to the band. It only stands to reason that
a top-performing band should look "top notch".
Each. uniform set will cost $214.00 and will
include coats, hats, garment bags and all the
accessories. A total of 70 uniforms have been
ordered as interest in the band program continues
to grow.,
A big BEAR SALUTE goes out to the Dixie
County School Board and to Mrs. Garrett for
supporting our youth.

Band Joins Extreme Tour
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
S Local Christian band, "Burning Bridges", was recently asked to
join The Extreme Tour '05 and will be traveling our country's
Heartlands, spreading the Gospel message to youth with their original
music and lyrics.
This group is made up of four Dixie County graduates, Shawn
Sumrall who plays drums, Josh Snyder on bass, Robbie Vanosdol
'playing guitar and Matt Herring doing vocals and guitar. Their style
is Christian Rock and their 'songs are inspired by their faith and a
O^ strong calling. These young musicians feel their music enables them
to reach, out to youth who might otherwise turn a deaf ear to God's
Word and from early reviews; they are making their voices heard!
Their songs are about real life situations and how God is there for
us. Matt and Robbie are the main writers, but it is the combination of
all their talents that has earned them notoriety in a growing following
of new-age Gospel music.
Matt, who is the spokesman for the group, stated that they have
enjoyed playing at local churches in the North Central Florida area;
.r -/ but when they got the news they had been invited to join the Extreme
Tour, they couldn't believe their good fortune. Matt hopes that their
exposure will not only boost their recording careers, but will help
them to grow as artists and Christians.
The Extreme Tour is a non-profit organization operated entirely
by volunteers. Their mission is to use any means that does not
| T compromise Scriptural standards, to reach "at-risk" and unchurched
youth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Burning Bridges will join approximately 40 other bands in the
summer tour and travel through Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missoufi,
Indiana, Minnesota, Kansas,. Texas, and New Mexico. Leaving on
April 21t, the group will learn what living on the road is like, as they
travel to 21 cities, with their last stop on July 31s'.
The Extreme Tour will be paying for food and lodging, but each
group must provide their own transportation and fuel costs. They also
have to set up merchandise booths at each concert hall, displaying t-
shirts and CD's. In order to help defray some of the costs the group
will be holding a car wash at Dixie Plaza this coming Saturday;
March 26 If you or your church wishes to send a donation to the
group you may contact them at 498-5715.
Prior to their summer tour, the group of four will travel tq
o back) Shawn Nashville, Tennessee on April 1st for Gospel Music Week. This will
anosdo, will be be an opportunity for these rising stars to showcase their songs to a
el through our host of record labels that will be there searching for new talent.
Best of luck and God speed.

Some suggestions for our new Chairman
,: Just last week, I received a communique (as, I am certain, did a
few million other registered Democrats) from former Vermont
Governor Howard Dean, who was recently appointed Chairman of
ftie Democratic National Committee. (I was sort of hoping for that
position myself, but I will humbly defer to a gentleman who made
such an impressive showing in last year's Iowa primary.)
Chairman Dean is concerned about a threat to free speech, and
certainly that concerns me as well. After all, were it not for free
speech, I could get in serious trouble for some of the stuff I write.
Here, according to Chairman Dean, is the problem:
Republicans, described by the Chairman as, "brain-dead" (I would
respectfully suggest that a more diplomatic term might have been
more appropriate), are about to undermine a long-standing Senate
tradition known as the "filibuster." It is a means of blocking
passage of a bill that has the support of a majority of the full
Senate, but amounts to less than 60% of that astute body, without
Which the Senate President (who is also the Vice-President of the
United States) cannot call for cloture (require the long-winded
Ilibusterer to sit down.and shut up while his/her colleagues take a
fote).
- Famous filibusterers from days gone by include Senator Huey P.
J-ong (D-LA) who lasted 15 hours and'30 minutes in June of 1935.
Thirty years later, Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV), missed the
1)ingfish's mark by one hour. In April of 1953, Senator Wayne
Morris (Republican-tumrned-Independent-turned-Democrat-OR)
went on for 22 hours and 26 minutes, only to be displaced in the
record books by Senator Strom Thurmond (Democrat-turned-
Dixiecrat-turned-Republican-SC), who logged 24 hours and 18
minutes in 1957.
:Interestingly, certain of these record-holders quit the floor, not
because they were tired or ran out of things to say, but because they
iad to go to the bathroom. This, Mr. Chairman, is something that
heeds to be corrected. No human being, particularly those of
advanced age who generally rise to the level of seniority that
provokes filibustering, should be required to go such great lengths
of time without a potty-break!
- Better yet, perhaps, would be that we question the merits of the
filibuster itself. After all, it is clearly a procedural device designed
lo prevent a majority vote, the result of which might not satisfy the
:individual delivering the interminably long-winded diatribe. We
Democrats are, after all, in favor of majority rule, and while I
:cannot speak for the entire party, it certainly seems un-democratic
'to concede an issue to whichever Senator can talk the longest
'without going to the bathroom. Sooner or later, the late night talk
show comedians could start getting a lot of laughs at our expense
over this.
The key matter at issue here is Senate confirmation of the Presi-
dent's appointments to the federal judiciary, one or more of which
.could eventually be to the Supreme Court. Chairman Dean points
out that only 10 of President Bush's judicial nominees have been
turned down, but he seems to overlook the fact that these were key
appointments, and that they were turned down by an obstructionist
'tactic that prevented them from being brought to a vote by the full
Senate, where they would probably have been approved.
This, Mr. Chairman, is obviously not consistent with letting the
majority of elected Senators-by the way, including a significant
number within our own party, as well as the "brain-dead" to whom
:you referred-weigh in on issues of importance.
Finally, Mr. Chairman, if you decide to seek the presidency
,again in 2008, would you put in a good word for me as your
replacement? I promise, I won't vote for Hillary in the primaries if
you'll do me that one small favor.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Dixie,
Glory to God! We prayed for God to open some doors and boy
did He! March is just barely half over and we have just finished
our 4th school in March. The first week in March we were in
Shanksville, PA,'incidentally that is where Flight 93 crashed
during the 9-11 terrorist attacks. We saw almost 300 students there
during the day but had to move to a church that next day to do the
Christian rally because they wouldn't let us do a Christian rally in
the school that night. The night that we were able to do the
Christian rally was the schools basketball playoff, so the turn out
wasn't very good, but a few kids got saved and some made some
recommitments and it opened the door for some ministry there in
the future.
We hit the ground running when we got back to Florida on
Sunday March 6th. Our first of three schools began on that Friday
March 11 th and we had lots of work to do to get ready. We started
setting up on Thursday afternoon at Valdosta Middle School and
the next day we did three assemblies and the students really
responded well. That Friday afternoon we tore down and loaded
everything up in the trailers and truck and parked it until Sunday
afternoon where we set up at J.L. Newbern middle school for three
assemblies on Monday. I think this was the most active group that
we saw that week. They really laughed at the skits and really got
into the music but they listened when the real life stories where
told.
After tear down we loaded back up to get ready for set up the
next day at Valdosta High School. We worked until almost 11:00
P.M. to get ready for the two Wed. assemblies. These were by far
our biggest assemblies with 1000 students in each assembly. It was
noisy at times, but we got control and they seemed to be listening
although the acoustics in the gym were not the best, to say the
least.
That night we had almost 2000 people return and we saw 305
students make some type of decision to Jesus. Glory to God!
After tearing down that night and with a few follow-up
meetings the next day, and return of all the rental equipment,
needless to say by the time I got home Thursday night I was pretty
worn down. We actually did four schools and saw over 4,000
students in a little over two weeks. God is Awesome and he gets all
the Glory!

Letter To The Editor
The events now swirling around a disabled lady named Terri
Schiavo compel me to speak out in defense of her life. Although I
have never met her, the very fact that this innocent, helpless person
is now facing an imminent death sentence causes me to recoil in
horror, fear & shame. I am repulsed by the calculated & unfeeling
willingness to allow this precious life to be literally starved to
death. Starvation is a particularly agonizing death, especially so
because it is endured over a prolonged period of time. No sane
individual would choose to suffer such a demise.
Civilized societies would never allow a condemned prisoner to
be starved as a punishment for a capital crime. Even electrocution
has been judged to be cruel & unusual punishment. Today
condemned prisoners are executed by lethal injection because it is
deemed to be much more humane by way of minimizing undue
suffering.
It seems to ine that Terri Shiavo at the barest minimum
deserves no less humane treatment at the hands of our judiciary
system. Of course, we are faced with the dilemma of committing
first-degree murder in such a case. The conclusion to this scenario
is inescapable. If it is murder to kill by lethal injection, it must
follow that deliberately to withhold life-sustaining nourishment
must also constitute murder as well. After all, as you will agree,
premeditated murder is, first & last, a matter of the hearts intent
which then motivates the consummation of the act.
The premier requirement of the Hippocratic oath enjoins
physicians to do no harm. Beyond that there can be no more
fundamental necessity than to provide bodily nourishment. There
is a cosmic chasm between allowing a person to die and causing
that person to die.
The consequences for America of this callous disregard of the
God given right to life will ultimately determine it's destiny. I
implore Judge Greer & the Supreme Court to review and reverse
the order to remove Terri's feeding tube. I further urge the justices
of the courts to join with me and all Americans in lifting our eyes
to Him on high, who is the judge of all men & who will guide us
into His truth.
Respectfully,
Henry C. Richstine

Letter To The Editor
Predator: animal preying on others
Predatory: ravenous, exploitive, and parasitic
One of the most horrific things that can happen to a parent or
grandparent has occurred in a neighboring county. Not in
California or some other far off place. Right here in our backyard.
A child gets kissed goodnight and tucked into bed, safe and
believed to be secure, never to be seen alive again. How many
parents and grandparents in this very county, town and
neighborhood do this same ritual'?
Are you going to be able to close your eyes at night feeling
your child is warm and safe in their bed in a home you have made
secure? I am sure the Lunsford's felt that Jessica was safe.
Do you know your neighbor? Would they respect your home,
your life and your child's life?
I never gave too much thought to this until Jessica Lunsford
was stolen from her bed, killed and buried right across the street
from where she lived. Her grandparents and father every time they
walk out their door will see where their child spent her last hours.
I looked up on the Internet how many sexual predators there
are in Dixie County and where they lived. There are five pages of
these predatory men in this county alone. Several of these monsters
live within a short distance from my home!! If everyone in this
county were to look this up, I'm sure it would give them the same
warm and fuzzy feeling it gave me.
I don't have answers, just questions. Why are they not
monitored with ankle bracelets the same as Martha Stewart wears?
She has not harmed or killed anyone, yet this man has a long
criminal record and can move about freely.
Why are they allowed to roam andprey wherever they want.
They lie in wait to strike. We worry about protecting our children
from rattlesnakes and a bite they could survive, but how do we

I visit Dixie County
parks, particularly the ones on
the Suwannee and on the Gulf,
.quite often. They're among the
reasons for my living in the
county. They speak well for
Dixie
Usually, when I visit a
Dixie park I see two things:
Dogs (with or without owners)
ana bottles and cans that once
contained various versions of
fire water. Budweiser seems to
be the favored brand.
Curiously, Alcohol and
Pets are two of the items
prohibited from Dixie parks
according to the little signs
greeting visitors as they drive,
bike or walk onto the
premises. Yet, dogs and
alcohol are common in Dixie
parks. The problem here is
neither the animals nor the
enforcement. But..do we really
want our already stretched-thin
law enforcement officers
spending time enforcing pet
and booze regs at county
parks?
Florida State Parks now,
almost without exception,
accept pets even in their
campgrounds. Highly
successful parks and
campgrounds throughout the
U.S.A. allow both alcohol and
pets but prohibit (a) rowdy
behaviour and (b) unleashed or
unruly canines.
Dixie County would be
well advised to look at its park
regulations a little more.'
closely. And clearly.

My husband, John (much
,better -known as "Jack") and I
were happy to read in the Dixie
County Advocate last year
about the dedication of your
new EMS building.
When Mr. Gantt called us
about that comer of land
bordering Roads 349 and 351,
Jack recalled how his dad,
Thomas B. Webb, Sr., gave
the state the right of way for
those two roads where they
crossed his property in 1935.
Se we thought it fitting that
we should give that comer for
such a good cause as EMS.
By the way, "Jack" was
bom in Homestead, graduated
from Dixie County High
School in 1944, has a brother
and two sisters and lots of
relatives in Florida, so we like
your newspaper.
Check is enclosed.

TALLAHASSEE In response to a call by
the Florida's Chief Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher, the governor and Cabinet approved an
emergency rule today to expedite the resolution
of open claims from last year's tropical storm and
four hurricanes.
"It's been over six months since these storms
devastated our state," said Gallagher, who serves
as one of the members of the Florida Cabinet.
"Floridians, who responsibly paid their premiums
on time expect these claims to be settled and paid
so they can start to rebuild their homes. We
expect insurance companies to step up to the
plate and resolve their outstanding claims: The
measure we approve today will help hold
insurers' feet to the fire."
Gallagher has held three of five scheduled
hurricane recovery town hall meetings around the
state, where over two thousand people have
expressed frustration with their insurance
companies and in many cases have requested
assistance. To date, the Department of Financial
Services has received over 300,000 phone calls
and has handled over 53,000 complaints. More
than 10,000 complaints are still unresolved. In
response to storm victims' frustration, Gallagher


called for the emergency rule to protect the,
economic health and welfare of the state and to:
assist Floridians still working to get their homes..
and their lives back to normal.
Under the emergency rule, insurers must.'
settle and pay all outstanding personal residential"
claims and commercial residential claims.
resulting from Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan'
or Jeanne and Tropical Storm Bonnie no later.
than April 18, 2005. Claims not settled and paid--
by that date must be reported to the Florida-
Office of Insurance Regulation by April 28,-
2005. The report must contain the policyholder's
name, policy and claim number, and a detailed':
explanation of why the claim has not been settled'
and paid.
The rule mandates that outstanding'claims be'
settled within the next 30 days unless the claim is
being litigated, is awaiting mediation, or has been'.
recently opened and loss estimates have not been K
received. There have been over 1.6 million
claims filed from last year's hurricanes;:
approximately 91 percent of them have been
closed, according to data compiled by the Office
of Insurance Regulation.

FLETCHERR COMMUNITY"
:Continued from page 1
S.The Fletcher Community played an important
11 illnot only as a farming community but was the
1tife for the United State Post Office from June 1,
:- 897 until January 17, 1942. The first postmaster
was Mrs. M.J. Fletcher and the post office was
located three miles west of the Suwannee River
in Section 3, Township 9 and Range 13. In May
:-of 1925 the post office was moved to one and
half miles west of the Suwannee River in Section
'12, Township 9 and Range 13 where Ebborn H.
"KSauls was the acting Postmaster. William R.
SFletcher took over the post in June of 1930, once
again changing the office location a few miles
down, the road. In January of 1942, the post office
.route. covered the areas from Old Town to
Branford, two and one half miles to the east of
-the Suwannee River.
The marker reads: "The Fletcher Community
iwas established when Dixie County was part of
.Lafayette County and both were part of their
.p.parent County, Madison. In the early 1850's
Fletcher families and other families emigrated
south from the Carolinas through Georgia,
"bringing their livestock and looking for better
pastures. Other families followed including the


Edmond, Bell, Boatright, Gronto, Hatch, Matthis,
Jones, Sauls and Ward families. They used the
Suwannee River to move cotton and farm
produce by steamboats to the railroad at Cedar
Key. Most settlers of the Methodist faith and
attended services at Pleasant Grove Church,
established by Rev. John A. Fletcher (1811-
1858). This church is now gone but the Pleasant
Grove and Ward Cemeteries are reminders of the
Fletcher Community's settlers. William Rete
Fletcher served as Madison County's Justice of
the Peace 1847-1849 and Clerk of Court of
Lafayette County, 1856-1858. U.S. Postal records
show Matilda J. Jones Fletcher as the
community's first Postmaster. Eborn .Haywood
Sauls, William R. Fletcher, and Mittie (Matilda)
Fletcher were later Postmasters."
Commissioner Lamb noted during the
ceremony how important it is to keep our history
alive, without knowledge of our roots, we cannot
continue to flourish and be true to ourselves. We
must. treasure our past and those who laid the
foundation for what we proudly call, Dixie
County.

"CADETS"
Continued from page 1
By Col. Dan Farley, DCHS JROTC
28 cadets from the Dixie County High
School JROTC Drill Team went South to
George Jenkins High School In Lakeland
on Friday the 11th of March to compete
head to head with the best drill teams in the
State while most students were enjoying the
Tri-County livestock show.
For the fifth year in a row, the cadets from
DCHS had qualified to participate, in the
State Championships at the regional drill
meet in Perry a short two weeks earlier.
But unlike previous years, this years drill
team qualified in not just one event but
four! Having competed in only 6
categories that result alone is worthy of
high praise. The teams that qualified to
move on to the State Championship were
the Mixed Color Guard, The mixed Armed
Squad, the mixed Unarmed Squad, and the
female Armed Squad. Two teams failed to
qualify, the female Color Guard and the
mixed Platoon Regulation.
After competing fiercely at State against
some of the largest schools in the State.
Dixie County H.S. JROTC came home with
their first ever State Trophies, earning a 5th
place Trophy in Mixed Color Guard and a
3rd place Trophy in Armed Regulation
Squad.
On the bus down to overnight in the
Lakeland Holiday Inn, spirits were high but
guarded. An entourage of cadet parents
helped keep everyone focused on the
following morning's opportunities. Dixie's
four teams were schedule to participate
throughout the day on 4 of the 14 drill
fields laid out at George Jenkins H.S. Each
drill field was for a specific event and over
25 teams were scheduled on each field. Of
the State's 125 high schools with JROTC
programs, only 70 had qualified to
participate at State. Unlike most other high
school sports,- there are no. divisions in
JROTC drill competitions. Dixie County
Cadets would be competing head to head
against schools with thousands of students
and hundreds of cadets.
Arriving on the campus Saturday morning,
many of the Dixie cadets were wide eyed as
they saw over 2,500 cadets swarming the
ground, setting up pavilions and marching
every which way as teams from all over the
state prepared to battle it out for the honor.
of being called state champions. First up for
Dixie County, with an early morning start
time,. was Zach Taylor's squad of 5
riflemen and I riflewoman. (Amanda
Kelley, Uriah Boyer, Casey Shyer, 'Bob'
Godoy, William Poston and Scott Johnson).
With the, other 21 cadets from Dixie County
lined up, watching from the sidelines Zach
smartly marched his squad in front of the
head judge and reported in, "Request
permission to use your drill field sir!"
Responding smartly to Zach's commands,
it was clear that' these kids weren't cowed
by the early morning start. Zach's
commands rang out clearly in the crisp air
while in the background the murmur .of
other unit commanders, on other fields,
could also be heard. With permission from
the head judge received Zach ran the squad
deliberately through the sequence of
required commands. All six cadets acted as
one. Rifles flew from shoulder to shoulder,
the squad effortlessly formed from one line
of six to two lines of three and back again.
Everyone was marching as one, arms the
same distance forward, steps the same
length, rifles canted at the same angle.. At
the halts, everyone was the same distance


apart. Gaps during marching failed to
appear. It was a beautiful performance to
watch and a roar went up from the sidelines
when 6 minutes later, the team marched off
the field.
Next in the barrel was "Bob's Squad".
Marching without weapons, in one of the
,most hotly contested events at the
championships, Squad Unarmed Drill,
Bob's crew, (Arianne Garner, Zach Taylor,
Uriah Boyer, .Amanda Kelley, Scott
Johnson and Casey Shyer) reported in with
the same "Sir, request permission to use
your drill-field Sir!" (Okay, maybe not
quite the same since Bob's command of
English still reflects his Hispanic heritage).
Again, as one, the squad preformed every
command with smartness and exactitude.
The four judges circled carefully around as
the squad maneuvered watching every
move, measuring every step and keeping
track of the tempo and time. Again, the
remaining Dixie Cadets lined the field for
moral support, doing their own judging. 4
V2 minutes later, the squad left the field to
exuberant cheering from the onlookers. It
was another best for the team. While the
scores weren't all tallied yet it was clear
that Dixie County had come to win not
just play.
After a lunch of 'big town' pizza the
freshman Christina Berry's female Armed
Squad led the Dixie cadets to their drill
area. Pizza and Heat conspired to unnerve
the freshman commander and it was clear
that a change would have to be made before
they took the field. In a drarnatic moment,
First Sergeant Snyder, called on Christina's
understudy, Sara Broady to take command
and lead the squad. Sara, determinedly took
charge and marched the squad (Nicole
Tenney, Crystal Clemons, Ashley Sparks,
Amanda. Cassidy, Nicole Lutz, Kandis
Tietz) into position and reported in. Off-
balance from the last minute command
change, this all freshman squad marched
bravely to the unpracticed voice of their
unexpected commander. While the 'all
freshman' performance lacked the
sharpness of more experienced teams it
reflected highly on the determination of
Dixie cadets to bravely face adversity and
still 'get er done'. On the Sideline, the
cadet's cheer when they exited the drill
field reflected a new appreciation for the
toughness of our 'Dixie Chicks'.
Finally, it was time for our color guard, led
by Zach Taylor, to perform. As earlier
predicted, the wind was now a steady 15
mph and handling the flags, was proving to
be, very difficult for the afternoon
competitors. Carrying the Florida Flag,
Uriah Boyer's weak shoulder was
worrisome. Flanked by Casey Shyer and
Bob Godoy, carrying Ml rifles, the team
made last minute preparations before taking
the field. With the rest of the drill team
intently observing from the sidelines, Zach
ordered the guard to attention, marched the
cased colors into position in front of the
head judge. The color guard category is the
most competitive of all the events at state.:
All 125 schools with JROTC have a color
guard and now, the top 28 of those teams,
were vying to see who would be this year's
best.
Using techniques gleaned from studying
tapes of other championship teams and
some of their own design, the colors were
unfurled flawlessly. With the flags now
raised high and gloriously stretched out in
the wind, Zach Taylor once again reported,

.Pure Water Wilderness Chairman


Seeks County Partnerships
SBy Stacey Brown
During March, Mark Gluckman, Chairman of
PWW, attended county commission meetings in
Kthe thiee counties to give a report on the state of
tourism in our area, the potential economic
impact of tourism, and the projects that are being
Tuinded by the Suwannee River Water
Management District and the Department of
"Environmental Protection for the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail.
t Mr. Gluckman appeared, along with
'Executive Director Delight Curtis and other
-board members and staff, to explain to the
.commissioners that there is funding available, in
'the area of $4 million, from the water
minanagement district, the state and the DEP to ,
-enhance facilities along the length of the
-Suwannee River on the Suwannee River
.Wilderness Trail, which runs from White 'Springs
'tO the Town of Suwannee.
*. He stated that tourism is not making the
* economic impact it could in the Tri-County area,
partly because the tourism infrastructure is "in its
:infancy," and partly because no partnerships have


Camera Phones-A Ne Way T See The World .
Camera Phones-A New Way To See The World


been formed between the counties and private
businesses to promote tourism. He stated that
tourists spend in excess of $64 billion a year in
Florida, and that studies have shown that the
Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy county area is only a
"pass-through" for tourists, who spend an average
of $28-$48 a day per person, whereas when they
spend the night, they spend an average of $128
per day per person.
The Dixie County Commission meeting was
held on March 3rd and the commission was
excited about the prospect of writing grants to
make Guaranto Springs a full-service river camp
with sleeping platforms and perhaps a cabin or
two for paddlers to travel the river.
The Gilchrist Commission meeting was held
on March 7th and the commission was interested
in writing additional grants to make Hart Springs
a more tourist-friendly venue for paddlers
coming down the river.
The Levy Commission meeting was March
8th and the commissioners are still weighing
which project is the most promising.

(NAPS)-They say that a
picture is worth a thousand
words, but today you can take
that picture with your cell
phone, e-mail it to a friend
and then call them up to dis-
cuss it, all within a matter of
rfioments. As a whole new
generation of cell phones is
introduced, more and more
consumers are seeking out
mobile devices that combine
advanced telephony with the
features and functions of con-
sumer electronics such as per-
sonal organizers, MP3 play-
ers, video game consoles and'
digital cameras.
Perhaps the most success-
ful combination device out
there today is the camera
phone. According to iGillott
Research, the camera phone
is the most rapidly accepted
consumer electronic device in
history. This latest "'must-have"
gadget has had an incredible
impact on the global consumer
market, with over 80 million
camera phones sold worldwide
in 2003 and that number
expected to double in 2004. In
fact, sales of camera-equipped
mobile phones in 2003 out-
numbered those of digital cam-
eras for the first time.
"Camera phones are quickly
reaching the point where con-
sumers can choose these com-
bination devices over stand-
alone digital cameras," said
John Beale, QUALCOMM
CDMA Technologies Vice
President of Marketing. "The
camera phone is convenient,
it takes the mystery out of dig-
ital photography without sac-
rificing quality, and has the
added benefit of allowing you
to share moments in time with
family and friends."
Starting with the original

techriology that produced a
cell phone with a plug-in cam-
era, the latest camera phones
feature improved LCD screens,
video record and playback, and
digital cameras with up to 1.3-
megapixels. On the horizon
are increasingly superior cam-
era phones enabled by all-in-
one chips that offer 2- to 4-
megapixel cameras that can
deliver what many call "album-
quality" photos and full-motion
camcorder recording, allow-
ing for the highest levels of
multimedia functionality.
The chips that help enable
camera phones have already
been introduced by QUAL-
COMM in its new Enhanced
Multimedia Platform. The
chips will incorporate popu-
lar digital' electronic func-
tionalities into wireless de-
vices, making camera phones
enabled by QUALCOMM
chips competitive with the
most advanced digital cam-
eras being sold in consumer
markets worldwide.
"As technology advances;
the trend continues to be
smaller wireless devices that
are packed full of advanced

multimedia features," explains
Beale. "QUALCOMM's inte-
grated approach to incorpo-
rating camera phone func-
tionality at the chip level is a
key contributor to the small,
sleek and high performing
devices that have made cam-
era phone adoption a world-


wide phenomenon."
In addition to its impact
on consumers, professionals
within the global market are
also suited to take advantage
of the features,and conve-
nience afforded by the cam-
era phone. Whether it's a real
estate broker who wants to
take a photo of a property and
upload it to a Multiple Listing
Service (MLS), an interior
'designer photographing a
space to plan a new design,
or a physician documenting a
particular case to reference
with a medical database, the
camera phone appeals to a
wide variety of professions.
"The functionality of the
camera phone is such that it
can be applied to a great vari-
ety of occupations," said Beale.
"They are less of a novelty
now, and we are seeing more
and more people purchase
camera phones because they
help make their jobs easier.
It's really become an all-in-
one tool for professionals."
With the handful of conve-
niences and capabilities offered
by camera phones, it's clear
that these high-tech devices
aren't just for your high-pow-
ered executives or gadget-lov-
ing technophiles, but for all
the rest of us as well.

Fight Charity Fraud


(NAPS)-Giving to char-

encourage crooks.


Most mail solicitations for

legitimate appeals for a good
cause. But watch out; some
are phony.
Most charities are legiti-

the right people, Postal
Inspectors say:
Know with whom
you're doing business. Check

If you're unfamiliar
with the charity, request an

to the head judge, "Request permission to
use your drill field Sir!" With permission
granted, Zach reversed the color guard into
the wind and they marched as one. While
the 4 judges focused on every fingertip,
rifle muzzle, and flag tip the audience was
mesmerized by the wonderful flags fully
extended in the steady wind. Reversing,
Wheeling, Halting, coming to Parade Rest
then moving on again, it seemed that even
the four hearts that powered these young
men were beating in unison. Again, the
Dixie cadets were showing their.
determination to better the best. As the
team cased the colors and marched off the
field, a reverent crowd knew they had seen
the performance of a lifetime.
While scorers tallied and averaged, Cadets
took the field for the traditional last event
of the day, a 'Drill Down'. Organized in
one mass formation, 800 cadets blanketed
the football field to see which cadet was.
individually the best at following the drill:
commands of a practiced Sergeant Major.
In five minutes there were 400 left as a
steady stream of cadets were pulled off the
field by experienced First Sergeants and
Sergeants Majors. The objective is to be the
last man or woman standing. Five more
minutes and the 400 became 200,
determined cadets. 5 more minutes and the
200 eroded to 50 and the serious
competition began. Those remaining were
all hard core, talented and determined.
Finally it was the last 20 cadets. Our own,
Ashley Smith, from Suwannee was still out
there. Finally, the 13th, she was pulled
because her heals weren't aligned perfectly
after making a left face. Quite a
performance from a young sophomore!
With the sun now low in the horizon and
shadows stretching the width of the football
field it was time to hand out the trophies.
The cadets, all in school formations,
expectantly formed a large U shape to
receive the news. The first category
awarded was female color guard followed
by the mixed color guard. When 5th place
was called for Dixie County a small roar
went up from the stands as parents and
coaches celebrated. Down on the field,
Zach Taylor turned in disbelief then
jumped out of the formation and ran to
collect their trophy. Returning to the
formation he placed it on the ground in
front while cadets madly congratulated
each other. Dixie's first state trophy was
finally earned. Then, mixed Armed Squad'
results were announced, Fifth Place, Fourth
Place, Third Place Dixie Cqunty! Now
the roar from the stands was huge, the kids
on the field erupted in celebration and this
time Zach flew out of the formation to
collect a 2nd trophy for Dixie County. With
emotions at an all time high, Dixie Cadets,
First Sergeant Snyder and Lieutenant
Colonel Farley were all one big hugging
mass on the field as schools were released
to head home. Dixie County Schools can be
rightfully proud' of our championship
JROTC performances, and all the cadets on
the drill team. They worked harder than
ever before and their diligence paid off big.
If you want to see a state trophy this year
you'll have to come to Dixie County
because you won't find one in Taylor,
Gilchrist, Levy, Alachua, Columbia, or
Suwannee County!


As the First
"HOOOHAA!".

Behold the Tabernacle of God
"Like Ones to Him"
Rev 21:3
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say those who
hold this vision within, are truly a people with a purpose. They will
count no price too high to pay, no suffering too hard to bear,
because of the glory to be revealed when they are truly manifested
as a part of this "HIMSELF COMPANY" totally identified in
Jesus Christ as is own many-membered first fruits. Now, the next
important words to focus attention on, are "AS HE IS," because
when this transformation in us is complete, "as He is, so are we to
be in this World," World, cosmos, present arrangement of this
system, as being dealt with under God's decreed time periods, in
His purpose of the ages. I the Day of the Lord, say let it also be
remembered; this arrangement is not confined only to this earth's
corruption and gross materialism, for apart of this arrangement is a
restoration into a higher realm of glory in God, and Jesus Christ is
the living manifestation of that new creation realm. And so, in this
arrangement, our goal is not to just achieve a longer span of life for
this present flesh and' blood body," but to be changed, and to
BECOME AS HE IS. I the Day of the Lord, say since it is to be "as
HE IS," then it will not be as He was in the body of His
humiliation. We have already partaken together. of that realm, in
fact, it is because "the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He
also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He
might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil
and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime
subject to bondage." (Hebrews 2:14-15) I the Day of the Lord, say
we are in the realm of corruption the realm of flesh and blood and
because we are in this body of humiliation, He likewise took park
of the same, but for the purpose of bringing us a deliverance from
the whole process of death, that we might be lifted up into a higher
tealm, His age-abiding LIFE. It was "in His humiliation His
judgment was taken away." (Act 8:3), and thus "He humbled
Himself, and became obedient unto death even the death of the
cross." (Philippians 2:8). But "His soul was not left in hell, neither
did His flesh see corruption." (Acts 2:31), for God hath "raised
Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the
heavenlies." (Eph. 1:20). Keep up with me so you can know what I
will be saying, continued next week.

bundant Life And Living
(KJV) Proverbs 17:22, States, A merry heart doth good like
ediuiie: but a broken spirit dyeth the bones. "The joy of the lord
is ,our ,strength "if we create in our mind our own joy and
happiness, it controls our whole being.
Happiness is a law of health, life and living, it
indicates satisfaction of the soul and body
and helps to attain its highest desires.
jHappiness will move gloomy and negative
thoughts, which cause sickness and death.
It is our decision to be happy or.
unhappy. Anyone who desires to be happy
has to create their own happiness; no body can
O k. ... make you happy but you. God has promised
to give us what we need, even the desires of
Lucille our hearts; and he has a storehouse full of
,tockton good things awaiting our demands. Peace, joy,
health, happiness, wealth, wisdom, mercy, grace, life and love are
in abundance in His storehouse waiting for our asking.
We have not because we ask not. If we take time to praise and
thank God for our many blessings, appreciate all that He has done
fox, us, be happy and rejoice in the Lord He will bring it to pass.
(Ps.lm 118: 24), states, this is the day,the Lord has made we
will rejoice and be glad in it. "Love Life And Live It "

The Word made
.....eFlesh
"The Divine Trinity"
Continued from last week. I
the son of man, say A trinity of
persons in the Divinity before the
,orld was created, did not come
fnt the mind' of any one from the
rime of Adam down to the advent.
Of the Lord, as is clear from the
W6rd of the old Testament, and
from histories concerning the
religion of the ancients. Neither
did it come into the mind of the
kApostles, as is evident from their
writings in the Word. Neither did it
come into the'mind of one in the
Apostolic 'Church, which was
|efor e hCouncil of Nice, as
appears from the Apostles Creed,
a which no Son from eternity is
mentioned, but a son bom from the.
Virgin Mary. I the son of man, say
Trinity of Persons from eternity
4s not only above reason, but
opposed to it. 'It is against reason
lhat three Persons created the
itniverse; that there were three
,persons and each one God, and not
three God's but one, and then three
'erg'ns' and-not one Person. I the
Jon of man, "say Will not the New
Church about to come call this age
Of the old church benighted or
barbarous when they worshiped
three Gods? Similarly irrational are
those things, which are derived.
from that Trinity. A Trinity of
Persons in the Divinity from
eternity was first taught by the
Nicene Council, as appears from
the two creeds, the Nicene, and the
'Athanasian, And afterwards it was
received by the churches as the
principall dogma, and as the head
6bf"the doctrines, after that time
1,V1n t 'the present day. I the son
of man,.say there were two reasons
;Why that Trinity was given forth
;y the Council of Nice; the first
was, !'hat they knew not how
otherwise to dissipate the scandals
If Arius, who denied the Divinity
'of the'Lord; the other, Because
tlley did not understand what is
Srotten by the evangelist John
"(Chap 1:1, 2, 10,14; Chap 17:5) 1
tie son of man, say The Divinity
'before the world was created as
.!believed according to the Nicene


Council and the churches after
that, to consist of three Person each
of which was God and that from
the first Person was born a second,
and from these two went forth a
third, is not only above the'
understanding, but contrary to it
and the faith of a paradox, which is
opposed to the rational
understanding. It is a faith in which
there is not anything of the church,
but a persuasion of the false, such
as obtains with those who are
insane in religious matters. Keep
up with me, I want you to see what
I am saying, love .you. Continued
next week.


In Loving Memory Of

Alma Roberts
November 1, 1938
March 26, 2004
God looked around his Garden
and found an empty place.
SHe then looked down upon his
', earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you
His.and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful;
he always takes the best.
Alma Roberts 'He knew that you were
suffering; he knew you were in
pain. And knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw your path was difficult; he closed your tired eyes,
He whispered to you "Peace Be Thine" and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,
We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again.
You've left us precious memories; your love will be our guide,
You live on through your children, you're always by our side.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.

Love you always Your Children and Grandchildren


Faith Baptist Church News
The Lord was especially good to us this last week in revival
with Bro. James Easter. Bro. James blessed our hearts in music and
preaching God's word. What a wonderful revival. What a special
blessing.
Today was one of the prettiest days we've been blessed with
lately, with gorgeous weather, beautiful flowers blooming, for the
spring season, and a great crowd in both services. God never fails
to bless us at faith.
We want to tell our visitors how special they are to us and we
pray that you received a blessing for.having been there. We invite
you to come again real soon. If you're looking for a church home,
we invite you to share ours. You are always special and welcome
at faith.
Remember our mid-week fill-up on Wednesday night, and also
remember to pray for the sick on our prayer list, the bereaved, and
especially the lost. Invite a friend to come to church with you. We
have great Sunday School classes and teachers at 9:45 on Sunday
morning, followed by the regular church service at 11 AM, and
services again at 6 PM on Sunday night.
We'll be looking for you next week for all of the services. Bro.
Jackie will bless your' heart bringing the messages that God has
given him, and our special music is always wonderful. Come
worship' with us here at Faith.

Truth
When Jesus left his home in heaven and became a man, the
Bible says that he came "full of grace and truth"
Most of us could give us a meaning for. the word truth. We
might say that truth is anything that is not false. Or we might say
that truth is anything that can be proven.
Jesus gave his own definition of truth. He said, "I am the way,
the truth and the light."
While his definition of truth might cloud the issue a little more
at first, in the end it really clears up the picture better than any
other definition for truth.
Jesus also said that, in addition to being the way, 'the truth and
the' light, "No man comes to the father except through me."
So, any person who wants to know the truth, according to
Jesus, would first have to come to him before he could find the
truth. In other words, truth doesn't exist outside of a trusting
relationship with Jesus. If you want to know the truth about
sexuality, for- example, you must first come to Jesus. The same is
true for questions about money, ethics, child-rearing, marriage,
divorce or emotional problems.
In a world so full of moral and ethical confusion, it is
refreshing to know that one man has the answers to the problems
that each of us faces every day. And that man is Jesus.

Steinhatchee Fishing Report
Jigger Fishing
"Brian, you ever heard of 'jigger fishing,"
asked Darrell Marchant. "Yea, I've heard of it
but never done it" I replied. "Isn't it using a long
cahe pole with a short section of line and a skirt
and hook tied to the end. Then you float along
dabbling the skirt underneath the overhangs
along the bank?" I said questioningly. "That's
pretty much it, but there is a little more to it"
Darrell came back. He went on to tell me about a
trip he.and friend had taken up the Steinhatchee
River using the jigger technique the past week.
They had scored well on bass, bream and tussled
with the mudfish. The story sounded so good I
had to ask if he would take me. Darrel said give


him a call.
And I did.

which was a

to' go jigger

We put in at a
private ramp a mile or so below the Steinhatchee
Falls. Darrel said he'd explain things as we went
along and that I'd be doing the driving. Armed
with a 20 foot cane pole wrapped from butt to tip
with 120 dacron line knotted at the tip with ten
inches of spare line. The extra line was tied to a
pair of single hooks hidden in a white and red
spinner bait skirt with a white pork rind strip.
Darrel was jigger ready.
: After a brief instruction, I ran the boat up
steam using the trolling motor at the pace of a
brisk walk while maintaining the boat
approximately 15 foot off the bank. Darrell
balanced the pole horizontally with his left hand
and held the end of the pole in his right. The tip
of;the pole had a natural curve to it. The curve
was kept facing down toward the water. Using
his right hand, at the butt of the pole, Darrell
would jiggle the pole so that the tip lightly dipped


in and out the water making a series of splashes
as he moved the skirt in and around whatever
structure was near the bank. The combination of
the splash of the rod tip along with the dance of
the skirt made the jigger bait mimic a frantic
scurry of a frog or small rodent trying to make it
back to shore. The bait looked good. It didn't
take long before the first fish rolled on the bait
but missed. If you blinked you missed the action.
We puttered up current for about forty five
minutes. In that time, we had several boils,
caught a couple small bass and a mudfish. We
did the same coming back down stream. It was
exciting watching Darrell deftly work the bait
along every inch of the shoreline. It was
especially exciting watching Darrell literally
yank the fish from its hidey hole. In fluid

of fishing. You don't need, or have an advantage

Thanks for taking the time to read. Take care

Buddy Martin's Weekly Sports
Commentary

A fortuitous air ball

for Gators
If David Lee doesn't shoot an air ball in the final
43 seconds and Anthony Roberson doesn't catch
it under the basket, lay it back in and then convert
a foul shot for the three-point play Friday, the
Florida Gators might be back on their couches
today, watching the NCAA Basketball
Tournament from afar.
Lee knows all about that
couch position, because
that's where he's been.
located for the last three
March Madness episodes
and, frankly, he's a little
weary of it. Friday when
Florida beat Ohio, it was
only the second victory in
five post-season outings for
the 6-9 senior from St. Louis.
Buddy "It's awful," Lee said the
Martin other day. "March Madness
Sun -Herald is the best post-season
tournament in any sport. To
only be a part of it for a short time, then watch a
team that beat you play, it really hurts."
Last year it was Manhattan and out. Before
that it was almost always some lower seed
knocking them off.
Except for that magical year when Mike-
Miller dropped in a miracle buzzer-beater for a
victory over Butler that propelled Florida to the
Sweet 16 and, ultimately, the Final Four
Championship .game. Lately, though, that Final
Four memory seemed more like a dream from
long ago and far away.
Such is the tenuous fate of college
basketball's chosen 64, which is why the late
Jimmy Valvano's battle cry for March Madness
was "Survive and ,Advance." Upsets are not
uncommon, as we saw with 13th ranked Vermont
bumping off Syracuse.
So instead of elimination, the Gators live to
growl another day after their narrow 67-62
victory that was salvaged after blowing a 20-
point lead and allowing the Bobcats to mount a
25-5 run that tied the gamed at 60. Florida played
poorly, but held on to win. And advance.
This time it's against Villanova of the Big
East, owner -of a 22-7 record, the No. 5 seed in
the Syracuse bracket and winner over 12th-
seeded New Mexico today at 2:15 (the time has
been changed).
We may be looking back on that play by,
Roberson as a turning point for Billy Donovan's
team should it fulfill the expectations of some
who think that these "Stealth Gators" might
backdoor their way to the Final Four. To do that,
they would likely have to beat North Carolina
and UConn. I actually believe they could match
up well with the Tar Heels, but they've got to to
get there to prove it.
Ironically, Roberson was having one of his
worst shooting games as a Gator and had been a
non-factor in the game when he suddenly was
transformed into the hero.
That leads one to begin thinking that perhaps
fate is playing a role in this quest by Florida as
the spoiler. After all, they've been on the other
end of that deal enough in the last four years.
It was late in the season when Florida finally
appeared in the Top 25, but in each subsequent
game the Gators got stronger, finally
consummating it with a second win over
Kentucky in eight days and the school's first-ever
SEC tournament championship.
Perhaps like some race horses and


Local Racer Willard Driggers

Picks Up 1st Win


Race Winner Willard Driggers


Dave Gerush-Advocate Sports
Saturday night, March 12th, was a special one for local Dixie
County racer Willard Driggers as he not only picked up his first
win of the season, but his first ever win. The Thunder Car division
took to the track as the final event of the night with 18 cars taking
the green at the high banks of the Bronson Motor Speedway:
The race went almost caution free throughout with the top five
running nose to tail for virtually the entire event. For some time it
appeared that anyone could come out with the win but in the end it
was Driggers in a car that he co-owns with another local series
racer Randy O'Neal. The win snapped the streak of Michael
Holbrook, who had won the previous two events.
Driggers carries local sponsorship from Cross City Cars &
Parts, Kings Tire & Oil, and Kevin's Portable Welding Service.
Local sponsor Cross City Marina also picked up a win with the
# 17 driven by Jason Holbrook in the pure stock division. A.J.
Northup had a. nice top 5 as well in the pure stock division.

1.-Stan Musial, Bob Gibson, Willie McGee,
Mark McGwire which one doesn't belong in

2.-Attention Congress: When you're
supposed to be grilling subjects about steroids,
it's not a good time to be asking for autographs
and photo ops with them.
3.-Look for some fireworks next week at the
annual PGA Tour players meeting in Ponte Vedra
when the subject of appearance fees is discussed.
4.-According to NASCAR regulations, I
could be penalized 25 points today if this column
isn't tall enough.
5.-I dunno, but does it do much for the
"tough-guy" image of Urban Meyer when he
cancels the Gators' first spring practice day
because of rain?
Short Stuff
For the third time in his career Florida's Mike
Degory, who has started all 38 games, in his
career, was named to the Dave Rimington
Trophy Spring' Watch- List of top collegiate
centers ...Ernie Els, perhaps only half serious,
says his hip flexor might have been caused by
"walking in all that sand" recently while playing
in Qatar ... This is the year some of us golf fans
have dreaded: Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus
are skipping the Masters except for the
Champions Dinner.

In The Eye of Tiger
You think Tiger Woods has his mind of golf
all the time, or has he begun to think more about
the future, as this quote would indicate? "I'll
definitely quit the game earlier than people think.
The only reason I would play is the occasional
tournament if my son is good enough to be out
there, and he chooses to play. That would be
cool. But my foundation means much more than
what I do out here."

Wild Ride In

School Busses

At Bronson

Motor

Speedway
The multitudes that turned
out for the carnage and
destruction of the School Bus
Figure 8 certainly got their
money's worth. Fourteen big
yellow school busses took to
the high banks at the Bronson
Motor Speedway. The final
event was an excellent way to
cap ,off a night of fantastic
racing action.
Not an empty seat was left
in the house as the fans packed
the seats for the first school
bus action of the season.
Robbie Cooper started on the
front row and pushed
teammate Roger Damron up
the track to take the early lead.
All of the scheduled fifteen
laps saw close calls at the
intersection of the racecourse..
The man on the 'move early
was Jim Bertello racing from
dead last to second.
Unfortunately Bertello's effort
would get derailed after a huge
collision at the intersection.
The result was the first bus
rollover of the season.
Tempers boiled over as two
drivers not involved in the
incident, got into a fistfight on
the backstretch during the

DID YOU KNOW?
Blame your cold on your
personality. At least that's the
word from researchers at
Carnegie-Mellon University in
Pittsburgh who insist that
happy, energetic people are
more resistant to colds, while
those who are depressed,
nervous, or angry are three
times more likely to get sick.
Americans get about 1 billion
colds every year. But it seems
that 'people 'who are
extroverted, handle stress well,
have a positive, sunny outlook
on life, and have a complex
social network are more
resistant to cold germs. And
when they do get a cold, the
symptoms are much milder.
Here are some other results of
the study:
* The more relaxed and
content a person is, the less
likely he or she is to get sick.
* Introverted people are more
likely to catch a cold than
extroverted people.
* Your chances of getting a
cold are greatly' increased if
you have serious stress
caused by work or personal
issues. The longer you live
with intense stress, the more
likely you are.to catch a cold.
* People who have a number
of roles in their life--spouse,
parent, employee, friend,
volunteer, club member, and
more--boost their resistance
to infection.
* Those who had three or
fewer roles in life were four
times more likely to catch a
cold than people who had six
or more roles in life.
* People with negative
personalities were also more
likely to complain about their
cold symptoms than people
with happy dispositions.

The pond culture is the most widely used

aquaculture. Successful fish production in ponds
requires a thorough working knowledge of the
biological processes present in the pond, and an
understanding of the effects that these processes
have on water quality. Understanding the amount
of nutrients that can ,be safely applied to an

the algae and bacteria will not be overloaded in

TEye on Health
Stopping Macular
Degeneration
(NAPS)-A new campaign
may open some eyes to the
seriousness of age-related
macular degeneration (AMD).


An online site can help com-
bat age-related macular
degeneration.
AMD is the leading cause
of irreversible vision loss in
Americans over age 60. It
limits the ability to see
details and can affect the
quality of everyday life. As
many as 13 million people
over age 40 have signs of
AMD and more than a mil-
lion are in the vision-threat-
ening stage of the disease.
The campaign was launched
by the not-for-profit Alliance
for Aging Research. As part of
the initiative, the Alliance
updated its Web site to include
an AMD corner with a FAQ
section about the condition,
facts for phv.icians that cart
help then pr.:,vnde treatmenirti,


and sources that physicians
can direct patients to for more
information. Through an un-
restricted educational 'grant
from Novartis Ophthalmics,
the materials for the campaign
were produced by the Alliance
for Aging Research in part-
nership with the National Eye
Institute.
It's thought that the more
people know about AMD, the
better they'll be able to man-
age the condition-and pos-
sibly prevent it.

Suwannee Water & Sewer District
2003 Quality Water Report

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you
about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe
and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve
the'water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your
water. Our water sources are ground water wells drawing from the Floridan Aquifer treated with chlorine as a
disinfection agent.

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact District
Manager of Suwannee Water & Sewer at (352) 542-7570. We encourage our valued customers to be informed
about their water utility.

Suwannee Water & Sewer District routinely monitors for contaminants in N our drinking water according to
Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated other ise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2003.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms
we've provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs
are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There
is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mng/I) -one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of
the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (jig/1) one part by weight o(analyte to I billion parts by weight of
the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

TTHMs [Total Trihalomethanes]. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the
MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may
have an increased risk of getting cancer.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds,
reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water.travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves
naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from
the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria. which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.

(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of
certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public
health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk.
More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental
Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply it may be necessary to make
improvements in your water system. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure.
Rate adjustments may be necessary in order to address these improvements.,

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone
organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care
providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptdsporidium and
other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). '

We at Suwannee Water & Sewer District would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually
improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality
of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any
of the numbers listed.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER


Suwannee Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water
Standards.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our
customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to
correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on
8/30/04 show that our system exceeds the standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for
Disinfection Byproducts which include Total Trihalomethanes and Total Haloacetic Acids. The standard
for Total Trihalomethanesis .080 mg/L. The level of Total Trihalomethaneswas found at. 748 nm/L.
The standard for Total Haloacetic Acids is .060 mg/L. The level of Total Haloacetic Acids was found at
.550 mi'/L.

What should I do?
You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply. However, if you have
specific health concerns, consult your doctor.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. However, Some
people who drink water containing Disinfection Byproducts in excess of the MCL over many years may
experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk
of getting cancer.

What happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water
and creates the Disinfection Byproduct,
What is being done?
The Suvwannee VWatei & Sewer District is working with our Engineers & 'he Departmentof
Environmental Protection to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving this issue within the next 12
months.

Many Floridians may be aware that there is a state agency that regulates public utilities including
electric, natural gas, telephone, water, and wastewater. However, some consumers may not
know who that agency is or what it does. The following narrative provides a general overview
about the agency that performs this function in Florida, the Public Service Commission (PSC).


What Does the PSC Do and
What Are Its Main Objectives ?
The PSC has the responsibility to set utility rates
that are fair, reasonable, and affordable for
Florida's consumers. In addition, state law requires
the PSC to set rates that allow regulated utilities
and their shareholders the opportunity to earn a
reasonable return on their investments. This, in
turn, allows regulated utilities to provide safe,
adequate, and reliable service to-their customers.
Therefore, the PSC must balance the needs of
consumers with the needs of regulated utilities and
their shareholders.

The PSC's main objectives are to:
* Protect consumers from unreasonable rates
and terms of service;
* Encourage maximum efficiency in utility
company operations and management;
* Ensure public safety and help the publicdeal
with regulated companies;
* Establish regulatory standards and apply them
in a fair and consistent manner; and
* Facilitate the provision of safe utility services at
levels of quality and reliability that comply with
established industry standards and practices.

What Types of Utilities Are
Regulated by the PSC?
The PSC has rate and service authority over the
following types of utilities:
* 5 investor-owned (privately owned) electric
utilities
* 7 investor-owned (privately owned) natural gas
utilities
* More than 1,200 privately owned water/
wastewater systems in 36 jurisdictional counties
(to determine if you live in a jurisdictional county,
please check our Web site)
* 10 incumbent local telephone companies

The PSC has service authority over the following
types of utilities:
* More than 400 competitive local telephone
companies
* More than 600 long distance telephone
companies
* More than 400 pay telephone providers

The PSC also has limited jurisdiction over the
following types of utilities:
* 18 rural electric cooperatives
* 33 municipally owned electric utilities
* 27 municipally owned natural gas utilities


Other notable areas subject to PSC regulation
include the following:
* Safety oversight of all types of electric utilities
* Telecommunications relay service
* Unauthorized change of your telephone
company (slamming)
Unauthorized charges on your telephone bill
(cramming)
Prepaid phone cards
Number portability (changing telephone service
providers without having to change telephone
numbers)

What Types of Services Are
Not Regulated by the PSC?
The PSC does not regulate any of the following
services:
Wireless (cellular) telephone service
Cable television service
Internet service
Voice over Internet Protocol (VolP)
Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) deployment
Water and wastewater services through
municipally owned and county-owned utilities

If you would like to obtain a more comprehensive
list of services to find out whether or not they are,
regulated by the PSC, you may visit the following
link on the PSC's Web site: http://www.psc.state.
fl.us/consumers/When to call the PSC.pdf.

How to Contact the PSC
The PSC has staff that will assist if you are unable
to resolve a problem with a utility company under
its jurisdiction. If you have a problem regarding
your utility service, billing, or rates, please contact
your utility company first and give it adequate time
to correct the problem. Then, if you still need help
or your concerns have not been resolved to your
satisfaction, contact the PSC's Division of
Regulatory Compliance and Consumer Assistance
toll-free at 1-800-342-3552, or by E-mail at
contact@psc.state.fl.us. In addition, the PSC's
Web site is located at www.floridapsc.com and
offers information on a wide range of utility topics.
Please feel free to visit this Web site to review our
many brochures and reports about the industries
that we regulate.

Braullo L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida Public
Service Commission. The PSC sets the rates regulated
utility companies charge for natural gas, electric and
telephone service within the state. In 36 counties, it sets
the price you pay for the water you drink, if your water
company Is privately owned.

Log Cabin

Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, March 17th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. It
was another busy day. We
hosted crafters from the
Rainbow River Craft Club. We
also fixed dinner for them and
we really enjoy these club ladies
who come to visit.
'We are planning to have a
two-day Spring Festival Friday-
Saturday, April 1st & 2nd. Time
is 8-5 and we have been doing
this for a long time. We will
have a chicken and dumpling
dinner that Saturday. We are
also looking for a Blue Grass
band to come out and do a little
pickin' and singing. If you are
interested call 352-493-2801.
Two quilts were put together
and quilting has started on both
of them. A Log Cabin and
Double Irish Chain will be
quilted and sold. We still have
our Illinois members, but they
will be going back soon and we
really wonder where the time
has gone.
Ann Hardee came to see us
today and reported that Wayne,
her husband is so much better
and that makes us feel great.
Our prayers are with Donnie
and Virginia Meeks as well as
all who are sick.
As always, lunch was great!
Thirty-two members were
present. W. Home

Post 91 News
Last Thursday's weather was not the best, but some brave and
loyal Legionnaires showed up, along with a few intrepid guests, for
the Donation Spaghetti Dinner, cooked by Legionnaire Shelby
McKinney and his able assistant (and wife) Anne. As usual, the
meal was outstanding and shortly after 7:00 PM, the regular
monthly meeting began.
The new 'push' for an Auxiliary Unit for Post 91 is showing a
lot of promise. The Auxiliary is requesting that fifteen women sign
up for a new Auxiliary Unit charter. If any more of the ladies in the
community are interested, contact the Post Commander (352-472-
2252), the Post Adjutant (386-454-8143), or call the Post phone
(352-463-1501) and leave a message. The Sons of the American
Legion Squadron effort is making headway too. Together, as a

"Legion Family" the Legion, Auxiliary and SAL will make a
difference in the lives of veterans and in the community.
Post 91 will begin meeting on the second Saturday of the
month, beginning next month. The next meeting will be on April
9th at 10:00 AM. A breakfast of pancakes and sausage with
coffee, for a donation, will kick off the morning, beginning at 8:00
AM. The breakfast is open to the public, so invite your friend, ;
neighbors and family to come eat breakfast with us. For those that
worry about too much sugar, we will have sugar-free syrup on
hand. With the meetings in daylight and on a Saturday, it is hoped
that more Legionnaires will have the opportunity to make the
meetings and become more involved with Post 91 and it's'
activities.
Remember our Armed Forces all over the world each day in
your thoughts and prayers. Here at home, keep watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families of those called to
active duty, helping whenever and however we can.
For God and Country, Wayne Gravely, Commander, Jamerson-,
Sheffield Post 91 of the Florida American Legion

Dixie County Sightings

Spring Has Sprung In Dixie!
Both our Dixie Sightings can be seen in Old Town at Mrs. *
Vernis Jones residence. The first picture shows Mrs. Vernis
standing next to one of her many azalea bushes that are in full
bloom and remind us of how wonderful spring is! Colors of pink,
purple, red, white and salmon adorn the 45-year-old bushes that
have flourish under her tender loving care.
Azaleas are in the genus Rhododendron family. For hundreds
of years these popular plants have been hybridized with around
10,000 different plant varieties registered today, providing a wide
selection of plant habits, sizes, colors and bloom times to meet
almost every gardeners needs.
All North American species drop their leaves in the fall, with flowers ranging from white to purple,
pink, red, orange and yellow. Blooms range from half-inch to 5 inches and "single" flowers with five
petals, to "hose-in-hose" flowers with 10 to 12 petals, to "double" flowers with a variable number of
petals, to "double hose-in-hose" flowers with thirty or more petals. Petals edges may be flat, recurved,
wavy or ruffled.
Plant height can range from
under a foot to well over 15 feet.
Many varieties are dense and
-" .'compact, others are open, and
some almost tree like.
Most azalea's plants bloom in
the spring around May, with
some blooming a month or so
earlier, and a few as late as
August and September. In the
deep South, some varieties will
bloom in the fall as well.
These hardy plants prefer
shade but some do well in. full
sun. They like slightly acid soil
(pH 5.5-6), which can usually be
found under oak, pine and holly
trees. Azaleas do not like "wet
feet", but they do like moist soil
at their roots. To avoid cutting
off next year's flower buds, do
major pruning for azaleas soon
.t... 'after they boom.
Mrs. Vernis seems to have a
S thagreen thumb when it comes to
growing these beauties and we
thank her for sharing her burst of
spring with us.
4 While visiting with Mrs.
Vernis she took the time to show
...... us an unusual "growth" found in
M ,. her yard several years ago. (see
bottom picture) At first sight,
she thought it was an old tin can,
but a closer look,unveiled a
mushroom-like plant. Do :you
know what it might be? If so,
S please call in, she would love to
solve the two-year-old mystery.
