Cross City's Men In Blue
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
Many times we forget about our law enforcement until we need them. We forget that they are out
there on the streets 24-7, watching over us, ready to protect us from those who may cause us harm or
break the laws. The Cross City Police Department is just one branch of law enforcement for our area
and while their main beat is within the city limits of Cross City, they have taken oaths to serve and
protect all Dixie citizens.
Chief of Police Wesley Jones has worked for the Cross City Police Department since January of
1993. In January of 1997 he was promoted to the position of Investigator until his promotion to Police
Chief in 2001.
Jones is proud of the five men that make up Cross City's police force and stated that they are some
of the hardest working officers he has had the pleasure of working with. Officer Thomas Tumlin,
Investigator Bobby Owens, Officer Danny Forehand, Officer John Simmons, and K-9 Officer Jammer,
cover an approximate 4 miles radius that some 2,000.residents live in, working in eight-hour shifts.


Pictured above are Cross City's Men In Blue: standing (left to right) Officer Thomas Tumlin, Investigator
Bobby Owens, Officer Danny Forehand, and Chief of Police Wesley Jones; front are Officer John
Simmons & K-9 Officer Jammer.
The Cross City Police Department (CCPD) is also a part of the Dixie County Drug Task Force and
acts as a back up to the Dixie County Sheriff's Department and Florida Highway Patrol.
Owens and Chief Jones attended school together in 1989. They have worked alongside each other
ever since. "Bobby is a hard worker and is great with people,"' Jones stated. "He is highly respected by
both his peers and citizens alike, we are lucky to have a man of his caliber on the force," he added. '
Officer Tumlin has patrolled Cross City's streets for the past eight years and works well with all
the investigators and is well liked by the people. "I can always depend on Thomas to do what I ask of
him," Jones stated.
Simmons, the youngest on the force is firm but courteous. He also cares for and trains the K-9
Officer, Jammer. Transferring from the Department of Corrections four years ago, Jones stated that
Simmons has been an example for the youth of our community and great asset to the force.
Officer Forehand has been in law enforcement for thirteen years. His experience as an investigator
and the contacts that he has made along the way are priceless. Forehand transferred to the CCPD from
the Sheriff's Office in January of this year and Jones and the other officers are proud to call him one of
theirs.,
While the CCPD is small, it can boast about its state-of-the art computer system and new patrol
cars that are equipped with stop sticks and new radar units. Last year they moved into a new 2,600 sq.
ft. building, that joins the Cross City City Hall. The Police Department building includes a conference
room, Chief's office, storage area and room for each officer to have his own station and is complete
with all new furnishings. Jones noted that the new equipment was purchased through grant monies
obtained from drug seizures. Last year the CCPD also welcomed on board K-9 Officer Jammer to the
force and Jones notes that he has already proven to be a valuable asset to the department.
Jones stated that while his department is community oriented and respectful of the citizens they
serve, they also have a strict zero tolerance for drugs and underage drinking. "I'm also big on
professionalism," stated Jones. "First impressions are important," he added. "I'm proud to say that all

County Submits Their

Grant "Wish List"
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Commissioners are currently working on
securing several grants that will enhance Dixie's recreational
events and expand the courthouse.
County Manger, Arthur Bellot has been working diligently on a
grant that will put the finishing touches on the Roy Ward Little
League Complex. The monies will be used on additional field
lighting, sidewalks and a soccer field. It will take approximately
$200,000 for Phase II of what has been some major improvement
to the park. A brand new concession stand and storage facility was
completed late last year thanks to the combined efforts of the
County Road Department and CRCCI work crews.
Bellot has also applied for monies that would give the
overcrowded Clerk of Courts Office some much needed additional
space. Plans for the renovations would take storage area and
courtroom entrance space and convert it into office and vault space
for the Clerk's Office. Estimated funding needed for this project is
also ,at $200,000.
The final search of funding is for a state-of-the-art Agricultural
Pavilion. With approximately $389,000, Bellot stated that Dixie
County would have a "show barn" much like that located between
Bell and Trenton and at the Heaven's Gate Farm. The outdoor,
covered arena would be used for rodeos, horse shows, FFA & 4-H
events, etc.
All of these projects are the Commissions attempt in making
sure that Dixie County gets its fair share of the pot of gold that the
State has allotted for 2005. A tremendous amount of work is
involved in processing these applications and we are truly
fortunate to have a County Coordinator such as Mr. Bellot, who
has the knowledge to make it happen.


Loud Music
Lands Trenton
Man In DC Jail
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On Saturday, March 12th
Cross City Police Officer John
Simmons stopped a vehicle
driven by Sidney Lee Henry on
Cedar. Street for playing the
music too loud in his car. The
routine stop ended in the arrest
of one of Henry's passengers
on drug charges.
According to a report filed
by Officer Simmons, it was
when the Police K-9 Jammer
came onto the scene that drugs
were detected in the vehicle.
Henry, a female passenger and
passenger Timothy Davis were
all searched.
Davis was asked to remove
the contents of his pockets at
which time he allegedly
produced a marijuana-smoking
device. Davis was also seen
trying to spit a plastic baggie
of cocaine from this mouth.
Davis was arrested and
transported to the Dixie
County Jail where he was
charged with possession of
drug paraphernalia, possession
of cocaine, and tampering with
evidence.
Bond for was set at
$15,000. Davis bonded out
shortly after his first
-appearance hearing.
Henry was cited for
breaking the loud music
ordinance.


Law Enforcement Re-



Opens "Dixie Doe"



Investigation
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
It was February 27, 1990 when our community was shocked by the discovery of the body of a newborn found along Leon Street, near
Circle Street in Cross City. An intense investigation led law enforcement officials to a frustrating dead-end as to who the mother of the
infant was or even where she came from.
Sthe named "Dixie Doe". A
fu neral service, donated by
Gooding Funeral Home, was
held at the Cross City Cemetery.

Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, along with Investigator Harden, and Rick Gooding were on hand to witness the exhuming of Dixie Doe.
While Hatcher was not in office at the time of her death, he stated that he and his office feel that it is important that everything possible be
done to bring this case to a close.
There is only one other unsolved murder case in Dixie County. The bbdy of Beverly Dawn Hurst was found at Sand Pond in 1987 and
once again investigators were unable to find a suspect in the Old Town woman's death.
Unlike Hurst, Dixie Doe's true identity has not been found. It is hoped that the evidence gathered this past Monday will lead not only
to ihe closing of a case that has haunted local law enforcement and residents for the past 15 years, but to the true identity of a precious life
taken away before her time.



New Childhood Development Coalition To


Serve Five Counties
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
Susie Lloyd Director of the Tri County School Readiness Coalition recently updated the Dixie
County School Board on the merging of the Dixie,- Gilchrist, and Levy early childhood development
program with Sumter and Citrus Counties, forming the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast. -
This new program will have the same goals, to address and enhance each child's ability to make age
appropriate progress, giving them a strong educational foundation prior to entering kindergarten.
Lloyd noted that this merger is due to a legislative mandate to reduce the early learning coalitions
to 30 or fewer by April 1, 2005 statewide. In addition to the mergers, the newly formed coalitions will
have an appointed chairperson and two other members from the private sector, add a president of a
community college or his/her designee and representative of programs for children with disabilities. It
will also include a representative of a private family day care home provider, delete memb&s
appointed by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and district school board; retain a DCF
administrator and member appointed by the school superintendent.
Contrary to popular belief the school readiness programs are not under the jurisdiction of the local
school boards. Each coalition will be responsible for all local coordination, implementation of
programs, as well as fiscal accountability for school readiness and Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) programs.
Lloyd stated that with the pooling of funding provided to each county, the total budget would increase ,
to $3,548,622. She also noted that 74% of those funds go directly to the children.
The new five-county coalition will help provide services to 52 children and their families, an
increase of 17 children for the Citrus/Sumter area and 6.8 children in the Tri-County area. According
to the "grand plan" these increases are just the beginning. Lloyd stated that cost savings will be Ir
realized through administration downsizing and anticipated VPK savings. Susie Lloyd Dir. Of the Tr
Dixie School Superintendent Bennett stated, "We hope this new coalition will be able to provide County School Readiness
the best quality program for our area and do it in a more efficient manner." "We are looking forward to Coalition speaks to Dixie
working with Sumter and Citrus counties," he added. However, Bennett wants to assure Dixie parents School Board on the merger
that the Dixie School Board will continue to watch out for the best interest of our students and will of a new five county coalition.
have a representative from the school system in place on the new coalition board.
While the task of merging will not be simple, it is achievable and well worth the effort, according
to those involved in the program.

Terri Schiavo: The final chapter
If Terri Schiavo is still living by the time you read this, she
won't be for much longer, barring a miracle or some extraordinary
and extra-legal innovation. That said, certain aspects of this matter
need to be examined, because either they don't make sense or they
raise the possibility of setting dangerous precedents.
On the surface, the most troubling aspect is that a judge was
allowed to order Terri's feeding tube removed, knowing that the
appeals process had not been exhausted. If a condemned criminal is
scheduled to die, his execution date will be postponed as often as
the appeals process can be prolonged--and that can be even longer
than the 15 years Terri Schiavo has survived with the help of a
feeding tube. It seems like we could be at least as accommodating
of a severely handicapped woman who has committed no crime.
Why has Michael Schiavo's contention that Terri said she
would not want to be kept alive by artificial means been so
uncritically accepted by the courts? In particular, why did it take
seven years before it occurred to Michael Schiavo to mention this?
Could it have had something to do with the fact that he had
acquired a girlfriend with whom he is now raising a family?
And why is Michael Schiavo insisting that Terri's body be
cremated? She is Roman Catholic, and her church does not
approve of cremation. Why would Michael Schiavo not permit her
to receive Communion on Easter Sunday? If a husband's authority
consistently prevailed in our legal system as it has here, there'd be
a lot of divorce lawyers looking for work.
In October of 2003, Terri's feeding tube was removed by court
order. The Florida Legislature passed and Governor Jeb Bush
signed a law requiring Terri to be kept alive. This could have
ended the ordeal, except that Michael Schiavo wouldn't quit. He
went back to the courts and got "Terri's Law" declared
unconstitutional because it violated the "right to privacy"-an
extra-constitutional concept upon which the "right" to an abortion
is based.
Just recently, a judge got away with ignoring a subpoena for
Terri Schiavo to appear before Congress. That would have required
that Terri be kept alive, and the judge should have been found in
contempt of Congress for ignoring the subpoena. So, why didn't
that happen?
Michael Schiavo has refused an offer of one million dollars to
relinquish his rights as Terri's legal guardian so that she could be
kept alive. Radio talk show celebrity Neal Boortz calls this
principled and heroic, biut what could we expect form a shill for the
abortion industry? Michael Schiavo wants his wife dead and her
remains reduced to ashes for some reason, and I'm finding it
increasingly hard to believe that there is anything charitable in this
sentiment.
If being required to die slowly of thirst and starvation over a
two week period doesn't invoke the constitutional prohibition of


cruel and unusual punishment, then why don't we use this method
to execute Islamic terrorists? And if thusly terminating the handi-
capped is appropriate, why is Adolf Hitler considered a bad guy?
(He was also a sexual libertine and a vegetarian; shux,, liberals
ought to love him!)
If; on the other hand, slow starvation actually is cruel, then' why
not opt for killing the handicapped and terminally ill quickly? It's
called "euthanasia." It's legal in some "enlightened" European
countries, and Jack Kevorkian was making big bucks with it here
for awhile. Look for this argument to surface as the culture of death
continues to gain momentum.
Finally, just how much of a takeover of our system of govern-
ment will have to happen before it occurs to someone who was
actually elected to public office that our courts aren't interpreting
the law, they're re-writing the law and the Constitution itself?


Letter to the Editor
Living Wills and Medicaid:
Many years ago after witnessing my grandfather and later my
grandmother go through months of painful and terminal illness, my
mother and I made a covenant. We both agreed if either of us was
in a painful and terminal illness that we did not want any heroic
medical care.
In 1980 I fulfilled her wishes and had the plug pulled and she
pass on three days later. To me this was the most humane action I
could take. I have a living will and my wife and both of my sons
know my wishes on this subject.
Lack of health insurance causes 18,000 unnecessary American
deaths each year according to the Institute of Medicine. Yet Texas
Congressman Tom DeLay and the House of Representatives voted
to slash Medicaid funding for our most vulnerable citizens to the
tune of $15- $ 20 billion over the next five years. Unfortunately
one in four affected by these cuts are children.
It seems to me that exceptional actions taken by DeLay,
Congress, Gov. Bush and Pres Bush on behalf of Terri Schiavo, a
person in a permanent vegetative state, is misplaced compassion.
It is understandable that the parents of this poor woman does
not want to let her go, but in truth they lost her 15 years ago.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor:
In a time when so many of our environmental protections are
being weakened, your readers should know that some of their
leaders in Washington are standing up for clean water in Florida.
The Bush administration in Washington has a plan to allow
publicly-owned sewage treatment plants to dump untreated sewage
in our waters anytime it rains, which would be disastrous for
tourism, fishing, and public health.
Congressman Allen Boyd took a stand against this backward-
thinking idea, and The Clean Water Network would like to thank
him and ask others to do the same. Congressman Allen Boyd
joined 134 other members of Congress, along with Florida
Senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez, in signing a letter to the
Environmental Protection Agency opposing this policy. We
applaud his leadership in protecting public health, our economy
and our waters. Now congressional leader Rep. Clay Shaw from
Ft. Lauderdale has introduced the "Save Our Waters from Sewage
Act," to try to stop EPA from moving forward with its sewage
dumping policy. Please take time to thank Congressman Allen
Boyd and encourage him to co-sponsor this important legislation.

I would like to applaud the DCHS JROTC cadets on their
success at the state competition. Lt. Col. Farley, 1st Sgt. Snyder,
and all the cadets, have really put forth a fantastic effort in
bringing some trophies back to Dixie County! As a former JROTC
cadet, I personally know the commitment to hard work and the
dedication that -it takes to accomplish these feats. The JROTC

Electricity Powers Progress,
Healthier Air
(NAPS)-The electric light-
bulb Thomas Edison first
demonstrated 125 years ago
started a revolution that con-
tinues to benefit the world
today. Every year, homes
become more comfortable and
convenient, industry more pro-
ductive, thanks in part to elec-
tricity and new electric appli-
ances. These are helping to
improvethe country's air qual-
ity, too.


Even though the demand
for power has grown 75 per-
cent since 1980, key power
plant emissions have dropped
by 40 percent, according to
the U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency. New regula-
tions by the EPA and further
efforts by electric utilities will
lead to much greater emission
reductions.
Electric appliances help the
environment, too. For exam-
ple, compact fluorescent light-
bulbs use up to 75 percent
less electricity to produce the
same light as regular light-
bulbs. New refrigerators use
less than half the power of
those built just 10 years ago.

Bronson Deploys


State Vets To Check Farm Animals


Linked To Petting Zoo Illnesses


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced today that
he is sending department
veterinarians and inspectors to
inspect and conduct testing on
farm animals linked to a series
of illnesses of children who
recently visited petting zoos or
attended agricultural fairs.
Although the Florida
Department of Health (DOH) is
investigating several possible
sources that may be responsible
for the outbreak, including food
'and water the children may
have consumed, Bronson said
he is taking the proactive step
of dispatching veterinarians to
check on animals in an effort to
enhance and expedite the DOH
inquiry.


"We want to do all that we
can to support health officials'
to get to the bottom of this
case," Bronson said. "We will
provide all of our data to our
colleagues at the Department of
Health and stand ready to assist
them in any way we can."
State veterinarians are
tracking the animals that were
present at the recent Central
Florida Fair in Orlando and at
the Strawberry Festival in Plant
City as a number of the
illnesses were reportedly
among children who attended
one or the other of the festivals.
They will then conduct various
tests on the animals traced to
petting zoos at those fairs to
determine what, if any
infections could have been
transferred from the. animals.

Michael Adam Taylor, son of Vera and Frederick Ankrum, was
recently commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States
Marine Corps upon completion of the Officer Candidates School in
Quantico, VA.
The Officer Candidates School trains, evaluates, and screens
qualified applicants to ensure they demonstrate the leadership, the
mental and the physical qualities to be an Officer of Marines.
Twenty-five percent is academics, 25% is physical fitness and the
other 50% lies in leadership skills. Out of 257 candidates
beginning the program, 179 completed it.
Adam was a 1999 graduate of Dixie County High School and
graduated from the University of West Florida with a B.A. degree
in Business Administration in 2003. He will continue his training
in Quantico.


Dixie Mainline Closure
The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge would like to
notify local citizens to an upcoming, temporary closure of the
Dixie Mainline road on the refuge. The purpose of the closure is to
conduct repairs, maintenance and improvements to the mainline
following the tropical storms of last fall and the current spring
storms.
These repairs are tentatively scheduled 'for the week of April
4th. It is anticipated that the road will remain closed to all traffic,
in both directions for at least one week. However, in light of
recent weather conditions this work may be rescheduled or
prolonged, whereas, any refuge road could potentially be forced
closed due to the recent heavy rains. The refuge maintains 40
miles of primary roads that are opened to vehicles with an
additional 50 miles of unimproved roads for hiking and bicycling.
For the latest information on road conditions within the refuge
call 352-493-0238.

***


At the same time, state
veterinarians are reviewing
procedures in place at other
petting zoos to determine
whether adequate sanitary
measures are in place to protect
fair goers.
In the meantime, officials
stress that it is critically
important that anyone who'
comes in contact with animals
takes sanitary precautions,

including thoroughly washing
one's hands after contact with
the animals. Some bacteria,
such as E. coli, can reside in
animals without causing them
any disease but can make
humans sick if the bacteria
linger on the hands and are
ingested along with food.

Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, Florida Thursday, March 31, 2005


FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
RED LAKE REMINDS SCHOOLS
S. TO BE ALERT FOR STRANGE
BEHAVIOR
In the past five years since the Columbine High School tragedy,
t lock down drills in many districts. But on March 21st, the extra
S ~. security failed to stop yet another mass shooting at a school,
i providing another reminder that the solution is not more metal
SuperintendentDennis Wayne detectors, but a better awareness on.the part of the general public,
Superintendent Wayne school administrators and teachers about the potential of a student
to harm others.
Security officers said that the tragedy at Red Lake High School in Minnesota suggests it is
practically impossible to .ensure total safety for students and teachers without turning schools into
fortresses. Jeff Weise, the teenage gunman, defeated most of the security precautions by shooting an
unarmed guard who had been manning a metal detector in the school entry way.
Schools all across the nation, including Dixie County High School are alert and monitor signs that
identify potential perpetrators. Educators and school counselors said similar incidents could be averted
if more attention is paid to finding them. Weise, the 16 year old student who shot and killed nine
people before turning the gun on himself, shared many characteristics with other school killers,
including Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, the teens responsible for the shooting rampage at Columbine
High School in April, 1999. :
There have been many times we have identified students with potential disturbing behavior in the
Dixie School District. When we notified the parent or parents, they were upset and accused us of
picking on their child instead of focusing on potential harmful behavior. We need to work a lot harder
on prevention. We can introduce all of the complicated security technology imaginable, but in the end
it comes down to how well we know our students.
Department of Education statistics show that violent crime in schools fell significantly between
1992 and 2002. Kenneth S. Trump, president of National School Safety and Security Services says
that the federal data are flawed because they rely on "surveys" of school officers rather than "actual
reported incidents." A total of twenty-eight deaths have occurred this academic year, including the
Red Lake killings.
Trump attributed the rise in violence to a variety of factors, including cuts in school safety funding
and the overriding emphasis placed by many states on improving standardized test scores. He said that
school safety issues have ended up "on the back burner in too many schools," with administrators
feeling that their jobs are on the line if their test scores don't improve.
Many experts agree that the solution is not to turn schools into armed camps, but to make them
more welcoming and encourage a much closer partnership between teachers, local law enforcement
and mental health professionals.
We in the Dixie School District will continue to be alert for student behavior that is of. concern.
We will notify parents, -counselors and any other agencies when we are concerned about a student's
behavior. We want to help students before they become desperate. Safety is our number one priority
that we take seriously because a life taken is irreplaceable.

"MEN IN BLUE"
Continued from page 1


of my officers fit the bill and I am proud of each
and everyone of them."
When asked what changes Jones has seen
over the past four years that he-had been in office
he was quick to note the increase in
methamphetamine traffic. "It's right up there
with crack," stated Jones. "Unfortunately it has
not only become a problem here in Dixie, but
throughout our country," he noted. Jones stated
that he and his officers have been working"
closely with other agencies, focusing on the new
drug of choice.
Chief Jones is aware of the frustrations of the
citizens with the drug problems that exist within
the city limits. He hopes that residents can
:.understand that catching those involved with the
..selling of drugs is not as simple as just going and
picking them up after witnesses have turned in
their names. The legal red tape involved in
executing a bust is complicated and must be
adhered to in. order for an arrest to result in a
Conviction. With that said, Jones asks residents
:, to continue to help the department. "We need all
', the extra eyes and ears we can get," Jones stated.
"Believe me, every call is taken seriously and
, followed through," he added. "We appreciate
';citizens' input and desire for a better
community."
Another issue facing the CCPD is the
. increased traffic on US 19. Jones noted that
during the week the traffic almost doubles. The
. school zone in front of the high school is an area
" that requires constant patrolling, as well as on
JHorseshoe Road where Anderson Elementary and
,,JRuth Rains Middle Schools are located.
. In recent weeks, gas, theft has become a big
; problem for area businesses. Reports show an

increase of three times as many of these "pump
and run" thefts. Jones stated that he would be
meeting with those businesses to come up with
possible solutions to the problem. One such
solution may be a "pre-pay" policy.
With the increase in gas prices and gas theft,
Jones stated that for some reason burglaries have
increased as well. The best defense for deterring
these crimes is to simply, lock up! Lock your
houses and cars. Don't leave your purse or other
'valuables in plain site in your vehicle. Don't be
an easy target.
The CCPD averages 50-75 traffic citations a
month with US 19 being their biggest problem.
Another traffic area that Jones and the City
Council have been working on is the intersection
of CR 351 and Barber Ave. "I have campaigned
for years to stop on-street parking in front of the
courthouse on CR 351," Jones. stated. "There
have been too many accidents at that intersection
and we have been lucky that no one has died as a
result of those accidents." In addition to the
parking, Jones, the Council and County
Commissioners continue to push the Florida
Department of Transportation for a traffic light to
be placed at the intersection.
Cross City Manager Mike Cassidy stated that
the City has a great working relationship with the
PD. "They are always ready to help with issues
the need to be addressed," Cassidy stated. "We
are proud to be associated with them and thank
them for all they do."
Jones stated that he and his men are proud of
their community and proud to be able to serve its
citizens. So next time you see one of these
officers, take a moment to thank them for a job
well done.

FHP Warns
Residents of
Inmate Phone
Scam
The Florida Highway Patrol
issued an alert to Florida
residents last week about a
widespread phone scam in
which con artists posing as law
,enforcement officials are calling
people at home and telling them
that a loved one has been in an
accident.
Then, the con artist tells the
phone owner to dial *72 or 72#
and another phone number so
they can speak with a doctor.
In reality, dialing *72 or 72#
forwards all your incoming calls
to another number, allowing the
con artist to receive calls
forwarded by your phone line to
the number they gave you and
leaving you with the long
distance charges.
You also do-not receive any
of your incoming calls. The
only way to stop call forwarding
is by dialing 73# or to call your
phone company to have call
forwarding removed
permanently.
Most of the phone calls have
come from pay phones at
correctional facilities primarily
those in Miami-Dade County.
The FHP said it does not notify
family members of crash
victims via collect calls from
pay phones, nor would they
request anyone to dial *72 or
72#.

Behold the Tabernacle of God
"Like one to Him"
Rev 21:3


Continued from last week. "Whom the heavens must receive
until the time of restoration of all things, which God hath spoken
by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began."
(Acts 3:21). I the Day of the Lord, say since the heavens have now
received Him, it is from thence," also we look for the savior, our
Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile body (or the body of
our humiliation, and fashion it like unto His glorious body,
according to the power where by He is able to subdue all things to
Himself." (Philippians 3:20-21) So, it is not for us to be as He once
WAS, Jesus, son of man. There is a great change to be wrought in
us, but not to conform us to as He WAS in His humiliation before
the Cross. The very reason we are now partaking of "the
fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable to His
death" is that we might also attain unto the resurrection out from
among the dead, "(Phil 3:10-11) and be like Him as he NOW is on
the resurrection side of the Cross. I the Day of the Lord, say Nor is
it yet to immediately be made manifest as to all that He shall be -
for that very unveiling shall take the ages to come." Is so be that
we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
"(Romans 8:17). Complete glorification is also a process that will
require the ages to come for its unfolding and consummation. That
in the age to come He might shew (DISPLAY THROUGH HIS
VESSELS OF MERCY) the exceeding riches of His grace in
kindness toward us through Christ Jesus." (Eph 2:7). I the Day of
the Lord, say right now he is "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and
today, and for the age. (Heb. 13:8). And "He must reign, till He
hath put all enemies under His feet... then shall the Son also
Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him that
God may be all in all." (1 Cor. 15:25, 28). Continues next week.

Abundant Life And Living
(KJV) St. John 3:16, Jesus said For God so loved the world, that
He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life". In gratitude for God's
gift of life to us, we must share that gift with
others. The measure of humanity translates
into the joy of giving. There are some of us
that don't have finance, shelter or material
things to share, but we all can give of
ourselves. We can share a kind word, a hug,
and a smile and say a happy hello. We owe
God's kingdom ten percent (10%) of all of our
increase, which also requires ten percent of
your own time to help the needy. Giving has a
Lucille great power in showing our love to others.
Stockton God gave his son Jesus for our human and
divine example. He was a perfect pattern for
us to follow. If we live, act, and do as he did, our cups will run
over with delight, we will be so happy others will catch the spirit
of giving. Every human being is unique, and each of us are
blessed with something that we can give, if every one bless one we
will make the world a better place. Take time to give of yourself, it
Will make a difference and you will love yourself for it." Try It you
will like it" Love Life And Live It"

Calvary Temple News
The family of Calvary is extremely grateful for a wonderfully
successful Friends and Family Day. For the first time in some time
the house was almost full. This is a testimony to the hard work of
the people who make up the church. If I were searching for a home
church, as many seem to be, I would not make a decision until I
had visited Calvary Temple. This is a testimony to Jesus!
Monthly United Prayer Service: This Friday night (April 1st)
7:00 PM at Calvary. Every Pastor and every praying Christian is
cordiallyinvited to participate.
Revival with Evangelist Gary Pollard will be held at Calvary
on April 6-8, Wed-Fri beginning at 7:30 PM. We invite and
encourage each of you to make plans to attend!
Things will not change until the church begins to pray. Acts
chapter two: They were in one mind, in one accord, in one place.
Come and help us seek the Lord! This is not a church thing, this is
a Christ thing!

Faith Baptist Church News
It was a beautiful and glorious Easter at Faith today. We had a
large crowd, lots of visitors and Bro. Jackie really delivered a
wonderful message. Bro. Jim Carter did the music in the morning
service and what a splendid job he did. God has really blessed
Faith with an abundance of talent and given it to people who are
always proud to use it for Him. We ,thank Him for the many
blessings He bestows upon us here at Faith.
Remember our upcoming services this week as we gather
Wednesday night at 7:00 PM for our mid-week fill-up, then again
Sunday morning for Sunday school at 9:45, church at 11:00 AM
and Sunday night services at 6:00 PM. If you're missing Sunday
school you're truly missing a blessing and the opportunity to-leamrn
more about Jesus. We have classes for all 'ages and some
wonderful teachers. Come out and enjoy it with us.
Don't forget this week to pray for the sick, the bereaved, the
lost and the ones less fortunate than you. Invite someone to come
to all of the above services with you and God will surely bless you
abundantly. If you're looking .for a church home, we invite you to
join us here at Faith and if you're just passing through, we want
you to know you are loved and appreciated and welcome to come

We enjoyed a very inspirational day Sunday, the day set aside
for commemorating our Savior's victory over death. Our choir did
its usual fine job, after which the Brannin sisters, Tracey and
Kelly, treated us to a beautiful song. Bro. Billy then brought God's
message from I Corinthians 15:12-19, leaving all with much food
for thought.
Immediately after the morning service, we were pleased to
retire to the Church Annex for the baptisms of several new
inductees into God's kingdom; God continues to bless! This was
the first time that our new baptistery had been put to use, as we
usually go down to the Suwannee for baptismal services. After
this service, our children enjoyed an Easter Egg Hunt, always-a
good time for them, as well as for the adults who supervise things.
As the month of March winds down, we're looking forward to
April and other wonderful things on the church schedule, including
our Spring Revival...keep watching for the dates.
We were very pleased to have numerous visitors Sunday, and..
invite them and others to come and be with us anytime! Please
keep those on the church prayer lists in your prayers, and pray for
the nation's leaders and our armed forces. Have a good week, and
may God bless you.

Legislation Update To Highlight

DCREA Meeting
Current legislation relative to retirees in the Florida Retirement
System will be the main topic of interest when the members of the
Dixie County Retired Educators Association meet Monday, April
4, 2005, at 11:30 at Carriage Inn Restaurant.
Special interest will focus on the Health Insurance Subsidy.
There is a chance of the amount of the subsidy being increased

Steinhatchee Fishing Report


Bobcat's Big Fish
Frustrated Robert (Bobcat) Reinsberg moved
from the starboard bow to the port stem. He told
everyone he had just lost two "big" fish in a row.
I never saw any of the action, but I saw the end
results when the fish took him back to its hidey-
hole leaving him pulling a tight line to
nowhereville. He tried waiting it out but after
many maddening minutes, he broke the line off.
Now, honestly, I've heard of the big one that got
.away numerous times. I've also seen the big one
'that was rocked down, with a little luck, swim out
of its hidey-hole and come to the boat as a four
pound red grouper with scuffmarks around its
head. But Bobcat had fished with me several
times and I knew he could distinguish between a
little "big one" and the genuine article.
We were fishing over a deepwater wreck.
The action was steady but the majority of the fish
were undersized grouper or red snapper, which
were out of season. It was getting late in the day
and everybody was having fun. There was no

SCat Daddy Robert "Bobcat" Reinsberg caught this whi
and 38.5" Grouper... The gauntlet is down. This is the
Record. (Big Bend Charters 3/19/05)
need to move the boat. It was a hoot just
S listening to the ham hock the guys were tossing
around. Tom Idoyaga was still recanting about
the goliath grouper that brought him and big
!Steve to their knees, literally. Others were
reliving the light tackle amberjack events. It had
been an active day on the water.
"Oh my, got one" Bobcat blew out. Judging
,by the bend in his rod it was a healthy fish.
,Struggle up a little bit. Struggle up a little bit.
,'Then line would slowly peel off the reel. The rod
Stumped when the line came off. Amberjack was
the general consensus. Amberjack have a distinct
fighting pattern. Pull hard, then pull harder, then
the hard surges begin to break the anglers' will
power. Bobcat maintained his composure, kept
the line tight all the while fighting like an animal.
The guys gave him a little room but wrote him
off as an amberjack wrestler.
Now that day, Jay 'I have no power' was
living in big fish glory. He had reeled in both the
largest grouper and the largest amberjack. He
was thinking he was going to finally out live the
'no power' label he earned when he mistakenly
*handed his rod to me, on a previous outing,
stating he was hung on the bottom. When-I got
,the pole the line thumped, the rod bucked down
and. I reeled in a ten pound gag grouper after
:saying, out loud, "you're not hung on the bottom,
.'you've got a fish". The guys have rode him like


a donkey since that shamed event. The guys
work together, so there was no relief for Jay.
Any and every excuse and someone was letting
the 'No power, no power' chant to his ears. Guys
are no more than over sized children.
I peeped over the side when it seemed
Bobcats' fish was close. Down deep in the blue I
could see a large shape. As it came up I was
expecting to see a flash of silver from the sun
banking off the side of the amberjack. That
didn't happen. No sun splash. A large brown
figure that kept getting bigger as it came up.
Small jewfish? I maintained a low tone when I
told Bobcat it was a grouper. In a moment, the
fish came to within gaff range and nervously
stuck it bringing it aboard to the hoops and
hollers of every guy on the boat. It was high
fives, hugs and silent moments of admiration just
gazing at a huge gag grouper. "I've been
wanting this forever and I finally got one" Bobcat
sighed.
Someone asked "Jay, what do
L you think about that?" Jay had
flopped himself on a bean bag on
the bow. He was shaking his
head when he said "I knew it
wouldn't last".
On the ride in, Bobcat was
either opening the cooler lid to
delight in his accomplishment or
reliving it turn by reel turn as if
the rest of us weren't there when
it was happening. The fish
: weighed in at twenty-four and a
I half pounds. That's a super large
grouper for the area we fish. It
would have Weighed eight
pounds more than the grouper
that won the Steinhatchee fishing
tournament a couple of weeks
ago. Way to go Bobcat! You
pi--:.-" m~ raised the bar for the 2005
copper 24.5 lb fishing season.
2005 Boat When the weather permits,
grouper fishing is awesome.
Bottom fishing with any bait is producing some
fine catches in 45 to 68 feet of water.
Furthermore, last Thursday I trolled to put 15
nice grouper in the cooler to help fulfill our limit.
We were trolling in 62-66 feet of water using red
head, tequila sunrise and orange/black Stretch
30's. Usually, it took less than ten minutes for
one of the four rods to buck down on a grouper.
It is exciting to catch fish and do it on new
bottom. Trolling is a powerful tool for giving
you a chance at finding a new honey hole. The
majority of my fishing spots were found trolling.
I have so many numbers where the sonar
machine would give no indication that the bottom
there would hold grouper. If you're die-hard
bottom fishermen, refuse to try trolling for
grouper; it's like taking bullets out of your gun.
Trout are whacking grubs and plugs in the
three-foot zone on the flats. Keep the boat in that
zone and you're sure to come in with a nice catch
of fish. Some of the fish have been in the six
pound range. You know, the big wallowing girls
that make you're heart stop and get you up so
early in the morning to have a chance at one.
Thanks for reading. Take care of yourself
and your tackle.

There is certainly something in angling...that
seems to produce a gentleness of spirit, and a pure
serenity of mind. WASHINGTON IRVING (C. 1820)

No Flooding

Foreseen For

Most Rivers;

District Lands

Remain Open
LIVE OAK, FL, March
29, 2005 -- Recent rains have
raised river levels throughout
the Suwannee River Water
Management District, but only
minor flooding has been
reported at a few locations and
most rivers are expected to
remain well below flood stage
at least through the end of this
week.
All District properties
remain open, although caution
is urged when accessing them.
No closures are expected at
this time.
The. Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Service
has announced it will not issue
a no-wake rule on area rivers
at this time, but boaters are
still asked to exercise caution
and courtesy by maintaining
low to moderate speeds while
traveling the waterways.
The Suwannee River at
White Springs was expected to
crest today at 72.3 feet, we'll
below the flood stage of 77
feet. No additional crest
predictions downstream have
been issued by the National
Weather Service (NWS).
The Santa Fe River near
Fort White was expected to
crest today at, 24.7 feet, slightly
above the flood stage of 24
feet. The NWS predicts the
river will rise to 20.9 feet at
Three Rivers Estates and the
U.S. 129 Bridge on April 1.
Flood stage at Three Rivers is
19 feet, and 21 feet at the 129
Bridge.
The Aucilla River at
Lamont is expected to crest at
54.5 feet on March 30. Flood
stage is 51.9 feet.
District officials also say
there is no cause for concern
regarding recent news reports
of dams breaking and flooding
occurring in central Georgia.
The dams are all located on
small lakes, streams and creeks
which do not flow into the
Suwannee, so those events will
not cause flooding here.
The public also is reminded
that the "dam" located at
Okefenokee in Georgia, the
headwaters of the Suwannee


8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday


River, is a small structure with
gates that remain open all the
time. Therefore, rumors of the
Okefenokee dam bursting and
sending a torrent of water
downstream are unfounded.

crest predictions and other
flood information, phone

FWC Weekly Law

Enforcement Report
March 18-24, 2005
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
DIXIE COUNTY: March 20, after receiving some information
about illegal turkey hunting occurring in the California Swamp
Hunting Club, Officer Jeff Swan located a bait site with cracked
corn on it. Swan monitored the area for two days and late on the
second day arrested a subject attempting to take wild turkeys over
bait. The subject had decoys deployed and had worked his turkey
call several times before the arrest.
GILCHRIST COUNTY: March 20, Investigator Jay Russell
surveyed a site baited for turkey. Russell ended up citing three
hunters for hunting turkey over bait. Two of the individuals were
, from Alabama and the third was from St. Petersburg.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY-COPS: Officer Dennis Sharpe
taught the law enforcement portion of a Hunter Education class at
the Mayo Correctional Institute. There were approximately 25
students who attended.
SUWANNEE COUNTY: March 20, Officer Arlo Rissman
issued a Suwannee County resident a citation for attempting to take
turkey over bait. The subject was positioned approxithately 20-
yards from a baited area and was waiting for a turkey to arrive
when Rissman ended his hunt.
March 19, Officer Dwain Mobley issued a Suwannee County
man a citation for attempting to take turkey over a feeding station.
TAYLOR COUNTY: March 19, Officer Mathew Reynolds
setup surveillance on a baited turkey blind and watched a hunter
enter the blind and begin using a turkey call. Reynolds allowed the
hunter to use the call several times, and listened to a gobbler
respond, prior to approaching the blind. After Reynolds identified
himself as an FWC officer, the hunter left the blind and
immediately starting verbally abusing Reynolds for spoiling his
hunt. Reynolds cited the subject for attempting to take turkey over
bait.

Sun-Herald half the field was expected to
-finish the second round, so the cut can't be made
until Sunday morning.
That being the case, it was tough to read the
leaderboard, where Lee Westwood, Joe Durant
and first round leader Steve Jones hovered
around the top at minus-10 when play was called
for lack of daylight.
It was so wet Saturday that the partial scores
of the 30 players who began play Friday had to
..be wiped out and the lift, clean and place rule
invoked.
The weather left players semi-mumbling.
"I don't know what's wrong with the weather
at the moment," said Westwood, who is
accustomed to this kind of stuff on the European
_,Tour. "But the weather is better in England at the
moment."
Tom Lehman was marveling at the forces of

Dear Buddy: I don't know whether this
qualifies, as most contributions cite school
nicknames, but my favorite team name ever is the
now defunct Macon Whoopies (hockey). I tried
to get a logoed shirt and sadly never did.
I, like you, enjoy collecting bumper sticker/T-
shirt slogans.
*Frankly Scallop, I don't give a clam!
*Wrinkled was not one of the things I wanted
to be when I grew up.
*Procrastinate Now!
I also collect quotes and palindromes. My
favorite quote by an athlete: "We're going to turn
this team around 360 degrees."--Jason Kidd upon
being drafted first by the then-hapless Dallas
Mavericks.
Hope you can use some of these. Enjoy the
NCAA's and keep up the great work.

I learned about the (Cairo, Ga.) "Syrup Makers"

The oft-injured Steve Jones told Brady
Ackerman of ESPN Florida on Monday that he
was at "about 50 per cent" back physically. Then
on Thursday, he went out and shot a tidy little 64
to take the first-round lead of The Players
Championship at 8 under par. When I asked him
about his math, suggesting that he should have
been 16 under instead because he was only at half
speed, Jones quipped: "But I had 100 per cent of
my game."

Screeching Halt
It had never happened before, and it would only happen one
more time. It's hard for us to imagine today, with all that goes on
in our world and the instant communications that enable us to see
and hear events from the far-reaching sides of the globe within
seconds of events actually happening. I'll tell you how significant
the people felt in just a moment.
This story is about one man, a man who had become perhaps
the most loved man in America. He was part Cherokee Indian, but
he transgressed racial lines like they didn't exist and for him they
didn't. Many don't remember he was a movie star. As a matter of
fact he'was, at the time, the number one box office attraction in the
country. He made more money for himself and the studio than anly
other actor.
And you might think that was kind of funny when I tell you
that he once said, "I don't act. They turn on the camera and I play
myself." But it was playing himself that made him so lovable and
adored by millions. His roles in the movies were parts like the
respectable doctor, the judge, a farmer, or a citizen of the middle
class who aligned himself with the excluded.
As Chaplin dominated the silent films a few years before, our
quiet star charmed such a huge atidience that in 1934 and 1935 he
became Hollywood's number one moneymaker. And by now,
you've probably guessed as to whom I'm talking about. If not, you
will when I tell you that his newspaper columns and humorous
speeches about the Washington establishment are probably some
of the most quoted phrases in our culture, even today.
But if you didn't realize the scope and breadth of this man's
influence, let me tell you one more thing. As I said in the
beginning, it was a first, and would only happen one more time. It
was when he died in a plane crash off Point Barrow, Alaska that
triggered a national mourning.
It's a Little Known Fact: that in 1935 during his funeral, every
production company in the world shut down, even in Europe.
More than 12,000 theaters darkened their screens. Production in
more than 150,000 industries and plants came to a complete halt to
honor this man of the people. The entire country came to a halt! It
had never happened before and didn't happen again until President

EP affects more than 50 percent of

it affects 90 percent of men by age
80! Symptoms vary, but the most
common include frequent and

up to urinate more often at night.

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Recently Forest Systems, Inc. came through for the Dixie County Historical Society with a
generous donation of $2,000.00 that will help with the ongoing renovations at the old Old Town
Elementary School.
The historical site also is the home of the Dixie County Cultural Center and has undergone a major
transformation. With grant monies and donations the 1800's style schoolhouse has been scraped
down, re-painted and varnished, repaired and replacements installed; with all work adhering to the
strict codes set by the State of Florida Historical Restorations Department. This is a huge undertaking
that has been in the works for several years, but well worth the efforts if you ask the Society members.
For more information about this project you may call (352) 542-0047 (leave message) or stop by
the Cultural Center on any Friday and take a tour!
The Historical Society would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Forest Systems for their
continued support and interest in preserving Dixie's history.

The Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners of Dixie
County, Florida, met on Thursday,
March 3, 2005, at 10:00 AM in a
regular meeting, in the County
Commissioner's Meeting Room, in the
Dixie County Courthouse, Cross City,
Florida.

Joe Hubert Allen, Clerk of Court
Carla B. Downing, Deputy Clerk
Arthur Bellot, County Coordinator

CALL TO ORDER
The meeting was called to order
by the Vice-Chairman, John L.
Driggers. He informed everyone that
Chairman Hays is out of town.
INVOCATION AND PLEDGE
Invocation by Commissioner
Valentine
Pledge to the American Flag was
led by Commissioner Lamb
Welcome by Commissioner
Driggers
APPROVAL OF MINUTES
Commission Minutes, Regular
Meetings of February 3rd and 17th,
2005 and Workshop of February 3rd,
2005 presented for approval.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the minutes as
presented.
JOE H. ANDERSON, JR.,
ANDERSON-COLUMBIA, INC.
Mr. Anderson came before the
Board regarding water issues in the
county. He stated that Old Town is
going to be the dominate area of Dixie
County shortly and it is to the point
that Old Town needs water as well as
Suwannee and Horseshoe Beach. He
said that it has come to his attention
through DEP that the Florida Rural
Water Association in Tallahassee has
just finished an extensive study
regarding the advantages of piping
water. The Town of Cross City has a
new water treatment plant and they
have an ample water supply to serve
the county.
My purpose' of being here today is
that we would like you to consider the
advantages of piping water from Cross
City to Old Town then on to
Suwannee. It would cost
approximately $5-6 million to do
piping and it would be practically
maintenance free. The water plants
will cost about $11 million with
continued maintenance. Also, if
Suwannee can't pay for their plant it
will be the responsibility of the county.
DEP and FRW are both willing to
grant funds if it is for the betterment of
the county.
My family recently talked with
Allen Hitchcock and he has plans to
tear down the Hitchcock Grocery Store
and build a large grocery in Old Town
that will include a pharmacy. This
facility will need good water. There is
a question that has not been asked, but
I would like to comment on.
Anderson-Columbia would be glad to
lay the pipeline, but only if we are the
low bidder for the project.
Commissioner Land stated that
Joe is right in his remarks about the
need for water in Old Town.
Mr. Anderson stated that Cross
City representatives have been
contacted about this proposed project
and are here today to assure you that
they have ample water supply.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that when you talk about water you
need to talk sewer. If you are digging
a ditch you can lay two pipes as well as
one. Chad Reed has been working on
upgrading the ISO ratings in the
County and this would benefit our
ratings.
Comment was made that
Suwannee has ample supply for sewer
that would handle Old Town.
Commissioner Driggers inquired
if the Suwannee Water and Sewer
Board have been contacted about the
matter.


Holcomb.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that Commissioner Hays needs to be
here for these discussions.
Attorney Lander informed the
public that Commissioner Hays had
informed the Board several meetings
ago that he would be unable to attend
today. There definitely needs to be a
survey done for both needs.
All Commissioners present agreed
that they are interested in the proposal.
Terri Langford of the Dixie
County Advocate and a resident of Old
Town commented that residents of Old
Town would want to know the details
and how this would affect them.
Mike Cassidy, Town of Cross City
Manager, was present and stated that
they do have the capacity to furnish
water to all outlying areas of the
county.
Commissioner Land stated that it
needs to be clarified that you are
talking mainly about Old Town
business areas and residents along the
Suwannee River.
Commissioner Driggers said that
boundaries would need to be set.


Mike Cassidy stated that a
comparing cost study would need to be
done-plant v. pipeline. It would need
to benefit Cross City, Old Town, and
Suwannee in order for either project to
be feasible.
Skipper Jones informed the Board
that DEP and FRW are both standing
ready to discuss plans and ideas and
would need a formal request in writing.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that a workshop would need to be
advertised because Commissioner
Land represents Old Town and
Commissioner Hays represents
Suwannee and they would both want to
be involved.
Joey Lander stated that you could
set up a workshop with Old Town,


Suwannee, Cross City and County
representatives and Horseshoe Beach if
they are going to be involved.
Commissioner Driggers asked for
Arthur Bellot to set up the meeting.
Arthur stated that the next meeting
of the Suwannee Water and Sewer
Board is set for March 14th. The
Workshop would need to be after that.
Chad Reed stated that we need to
plan for the future which would
include fire hydrants at various points
along the highway from Old Town to
Suwannee which will assist in the
upgrading of the ISO ratings.
TERRY BARNES, PILOT
Dr. Terry Barnes addressed the
Board regarding the Cross City
Airport. He presented a proposal for
the formation of the Dixie
County/Cross City Airport Advisory
Committee along with the purpose and
requirements of the committee. He
stated that this is not meant to criticize
anyone and we do appreciate all efforts
to benefit the airport. Regional plans
are needed for the future.
Commissioner Driggers stated that
there is an unofficial committee
already. Some people are under the
impression that nothing is being done
at the airport, but they need to go and
look. Admittedly, recently we have not
done anything because grant funds
have been given to the 911 system.
We do have plans for T-hangers and
have a new updated airport layout
plan. Paul Griffin, Manager of Dixie
Aviation, has a copy.
There was more discussion about
the progress of the airport and how it
benefits the county.
Commissioner Driggers
recommended that the Cross City
Airport Advisory Board Committee be
made official as follows: Mike
Cassidy, Paul Griffin, Terry Barnes,
Arthur Bellot, Skipper Jones, David
Farcus, Chad Reed, and Commissioner .
Driggers.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the Cross City
Airport Advisory Board Committee as
recommended.
The Committee will meet next
week to elect officers.
Terry Barnes thanked the Board
for this new start and for their interest
in what they have done today.
ANTHONY FRACCALVIERI,
INTERNATIONAL
ENVIRONMENTAL
TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Larry Crow, Attorney from Tarpon
Springs, Florida was the spokesperson
for IET. He stated that these
gentlemen came to him some time ago
about treating a solid waste facility in
Dixie County. Our purpose today is to
introduce ourselves and address
environmental issues. He said that he
would not be here with this proposal if
he felt it would endanger the air or
water supplies. There are no.
emissions-it is self contained, mostly
underground. It is monitored on a
daily basis.
Commissioner Driggers inquired
as to how much land would be needed
for the waste treatment plant to
function properly.
Mr. Fraccalvieri Was present and-
answered that they would like to
acquire ten or more acres.
Commissioner Lamb inquired
about the by-product, ash. Also, where,
a plant is in production at this time?
Mr. Fraccalvieri stated there
would be no smell .or water run off.
They have existing plants in Wyoming,
Alaska, and Malaysia.
Commissioner Driggers informed
the group that Dixie County is
interested and would like to get them
here, but will have to cross some
hurdles.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that he is excited about it and knows it
is possible because he has some
knowledge about how "scrubbers"
work.
Mr. Fraccalvieri informed the
Board that their intention is to begin
small and progressively grow larger.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that we as well as other counties have
trouble with disposal of tires. Our
Solid Waste Coordinator, Joe Ruth, is
present and can tell you how hard it is
to dispose of them. Medical waste is a
problem, also.
Mr. Fraccalvieri commented that it
can all be taken care of in this
proposed facility.
The Board is in favor of this
concept.
MARK GLUCKMAN, PURE
WATER WILDERNESS
Mr. Gluckman came forward and
introduced himself as the new
Chairman of the Pure Water
Wilderness Board, formerly known as
the Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy Tourism
Development Board. He commented
that he isn't here to ask for money, but
to make sure Dixie County gets it's
moneys worth of the already generous
donation given.
Natural based tourism was
discussed. He commented that he has
paddled or motored every mile of the
Suwannee River and Dixie County has
the nicest boat ramps along the way.
But, people do not know where they
are and some of the facilities need
enhancing. Pure Water Wilderness
doesn't have the money, neither does
Dixie County. We need to piggyback
on existing grants. $4,000,000 has
been budgeted for cabins, etc... along
the Wilderness Trail. The printed
brochures do not mention any facilities
in Dixie, Gilchrist, or Levy Counties
with the exception of State Parks. You
need to select a project that has


potential to attract tourists and select
partnership with Pure Water
Wilderness, so that we will be able to
work together.
Commissioner Driggers
commented that Gornto Springs and
Joe H. Anderson, Sr. Parks are two
important projects to look at. ,
Commissioner Lamb stated that it
needs to be looked at further. We will
support you and we will be happy to
have your help.
Arthur Bellot informed the Board
that there are four acres adjacent to the
Anderson Park available for purchase.
The Board agreed to look into
purchasing the property.
Steve Hurd, DC Director of Three
Rivers Regional Library and a member
of the Pure Water Wilderness Board
was present. He stated he is here today


in support of Pure Water Wilderness.
JAN PARKS, FAMILY
MEDICAL PRACTICE
Ms. Parks addressed the Board
and gave a report. She stated that they
have an increase of patients with an
average of 500 patients per month.
FMP has added a P.A. and are looking
for a volunteer to serve at the facility.
She stated that Jeff Lausen, Corporate
Office for NFMC, has informed us that
grant funds are available which
requires 80/20 matching funds. The
Board is to look into this grant.
DICK EDWARDS,
COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
CONSULTING
Mr. Edwards presented the Dixie
County Grants Status Report dated
March 3, 2005.
CDBG-He commented on the
HUD's Disaster Recovery Initiative
(DRI). The Florida Department of
Community Affairs has released its
final "Draft" version of the state's
eligibility requirements to receive
funding from HUD's DRI
supplemental appropriation of the
$109 million to Florida and most of the
state's 67 counties (including Dixie)
do not qualify. "..........only the
fifteen hardest hit counties are targeted
to receive funding. ..." (A copy of the
draft was attached.)
DCA's Gail Stafford monitored
the DC CDBG 2005 Housing
Revitalization Program March 2nd,
and she had a few findings ...... but
for the most part the monitoring was.
satisfactory.
We plan to complete projects,
either with CDBG or SHIP funding,
and closeout this grant program in time
to qualify the County for another
$750,000 by September or October
2005, if DCA keeps its planned
funding schedule.
SHIP-Mr. Edwards commented
that the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation conducted monitoring of
the DC SHIP Program on. Monday,
February 28th, concerning last year's
audit findings. In order to bring the
program into compliance, we have to
send our staff to Florida Housing
Coalition workshops to learn how to
organize your files to comply with
FHFC requirements.
Roy Griffin, CPC, came forward
and informed the Board that bids have
been received regarding the
Manufactured Home for J.D. and
Jennifer Hines. They need to be
opened.
The Board approved for Mr.,
Griffin to open the bids.
Bids received were as follows:
1. C & G Mobile Homes, Lake
City, FL $80,831.00
Homes of Merit
2. C & G Mobile Homes,
Chiefland, FL $74,485.00
Homes of Merit
Commissioner Lamb commented
that DC will only obligate $43,000.
There was some discussion
regarding the proper way to handle the
situation.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to reject the bids and go
back to the original price of $43,000
that was awarded.
The Board informed Ms. Hines
they would make the $43,000 down
payment on a suitable unit.
Mr. Edwards recommended that
the Board do a waiver on the amount
over the allowable amount.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded- by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the waiver.
CHAD REED, EMERGENCY
SERVICES DIRECTOR
Chad Reed appeared before the
Board and presented his EMS Monthly
Reports for the Emergency and Non-
Emergency Calls for February 2005.
Thursday, March 10th, 2005 is the
COOP Update Meeting, 2 PM, at the
City Hall. Also, there will be a
meeting this same day at 5:30 PM for
Business Outreach. We will hand out
kits.
The ambulance delivery date has
been narrowed down to March 20th.
ISO ratings were discussed.
Arthur Bellot stated that an ISO
rating does not help anyone that
chooses not to have insurance.
JOHNNY MCDARIS, JENA
RESIDENT
Mr. McDaris came before the
Board in regards to his property on
Jena Road.-
He stated that flooding problems
have been created due to his neighbor
building up his property. When it
rains all the water flows across the
highway from his neighbor's property
onto his property. The neighbor keeps
adding limerock and now has stone
that is higher than 'the highway. The
shoulder needs to be scraped.
Commissioner Valentine informed
Mr. McDaris that he would do what he
could.
Attorney, Joey Lander, asked
Howard Reed to look into the problem
to see what the County can do with the
situation.
JERRY PRATER, VETERANS
SERVICE OFFICER'
Mr. Prater presented his Monthly
Veterans Service Report dated March
3, 2005. He commented that the
month of February brought 22 office
visits and 3 outreach visits to veterans
who are housebound.
The Department of Veterans
Affairs has arranged for veterans
returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to
receive medical treatment by applying'
directly to the VA Medical Centers in
Gainesville and Lake City. Toll-free
phone numbers are available for these


facilities and a website for other VA
locations.
The Veterans "mini-park" near the
Nature Trail on 351 has been on hold
for more than a year, awaiting the
availability of labor to complete the
project. The posts have been put up,
but some have been knocked over and
need restoring. Mowing is needed and
we would like at least one picnic table
with a shelter.
The Commissioners all agreed it is
time to get this project finished. They
asked Mr. Prater to get with
Commissioner Hays and move on it.
Howard Reed commented that
Commissioner Hays and Cross City are
supposed to handle the project. The
holes have already been drilled into the
posts for the rope.
Mr. Prater, representing American


Legion Post #383, asked the Board if
they could haul some limerock on the
road between Chavous Road and Old
Town that runs along the Nature Trail.
He said it is pretty rough.
Howard Reed stated that it is
graded every three weeks.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that these rains cause havoc on the
graded roads.
Commissioner Land told Mr.
Prater that it will be taken care of.
JOE PRICE RUTH, RECYCLING
COORDINATOR
Joe Ruth presented a copy of the
flyer for the Toxic Round Up. He
stated it will be early this year so it will
be cooler and hopefully we will have
more participation.
He informed the Board that he
attended a funeral several weeks ago
and got "wrote up" by the DEP. He
presented a copy of a letter from Frank
Darabi regarding the C&DD Facility
and Transfer Station Warning Letter
and Spotter/Operator Issues. Mr.
Darabi states in the letter "The
deficiencies noted included the
absence of an operator at the transfer
station and the absence of a spotter ,at
the C&DD facility. ..... Joe Ruth is
the sole operator and spotter for both
the transfer station and the C&DD
facility and at the time of. the
inspection he was not onsite. It is
recommended that Dixie County have
both an additional operator and spotter
trained in the event that Mr. Ruth is
not available. Please note, the
additional operator and spotter can be
the same person."
Joe commented that if
Commissioner Land calls for him to go
to his 317 roll off site, for that matter if
anyone calls and he has to leave, it
puts the county in violation.
Commissioner Land said he has a
serious problem with people coming in
at night and strewing trash everywhere
at this roll off site.
Joe requested help with the
Caterpillar Dozier at the site. He
stated that by law we must have a
dozier out there. The repairs will cost
about $15,000. William Earl says that
he can fix it.
Commissioner Land said it needs
to be repaired by a professional
mechanic.
Commissioner Driggers
recommended that Joe call around for
quotes.
Joe requested to put the Case W14
in the "County Auction" as a delayed
entry.
Arthur Bellot informed the Board
that the Case has no brakes and no kill
switch. It is old and small.
The Board agreed to take it to the
auction.
Commissioner Land inquired
about construction companies bringing
out of county waste and dumping it at
the roll off sites.
Commissioner Valentine stated
that he was also going to bring this up.
He informed the Board that two dump
trucks dumped at his roll off site and
tore the gate down to get in. Proctor
and Gamble would like to put a 6 foot
ditch on their property near the
highway to keep people from dumping
there.
Joe stated that he caught an out of
county dump truck dumping. It proves
that we need to do something and I
would like to sale pre-paid tickets; if
they don't have a ticket they can't
dump.
There was more discussion about
commercial contractors being the
biggest problem and how other
counties are charging for this service.
No action was taken at this time.
HOWARD REED, COUNTY
ROAD SUPERINTENDENT
Mr. Reed requested permission to
advertise two jobs--one at the rock pit
and one at the shop.
Board approved.
JACK SPIVEY, BUILDING
OFFICIAL
John Jenkins presented the Dixie
County Building and Zoning
Department Report dated February 28,
,2005. Permits and revenues collected
were both up from January.

BILLY KEEN, ZONING
OFFICIAL & SAFETY DIRECTOR
Billy Keen informed the Board
that last week three (3) applications
were made for condos in Jena and one
(1) in Suwannee: They want to start
work on their plans as soon as
possible.
Chad Reed commented that we are
getting in a difficult situation. We
need to address the issues with the fire
protection.
John Jenkins stated that Pinellas
County charges fees in excess of
$2,100 per unit and Dixie County
charges $500 per unit.
Chad stated that our fire service
vehicles will not reach the condo
levels.
The impact fee addresses one
inspection-it doesn't address ongoing
recurrence of inspections.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
we are going to have to budget for it
and make a way to provide the
services.
Commissioner Land commented
that when he was first elected and
serving on the Board as Commissioner
the county wasn't required to have a
street sign and the county had to build
a road to every house that was built off
the main roads.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
everyone is working shorthanded. As
the county grows we need to grow with
it.
Chad Reed commented that it
takes $350,000 to man one fire station


with six (6) full time employees around
the clock. I don't think it is right to
ask a volunteer to climb four flights of
stairs and risk injury because Worker's
Comp doesn't cover lost wages for a
volunteer.
Joey Lander stated that we need to
consider condos and commercial
businesses over 2 stories, counting
ground level parking as the first floor,
and come up with a formula of how to
figure the fees.
Arthur Bellot reminded the Board
that an ordinance addressing impact
fees to cover the cost of providing fires
services to condos and multi-level
buildings was discussed back in July
of 2004.
After some conversation, the
Board approved a staff meeting and
scheduled it for Thursday, March 10th,,


2005 at 9:30 AM in the Board of
Commission Meeting Room in the
Courthouse.
Billy Keen informed the Board
that Mr. Parker Miller, property owner
of the "Old Jungle Drive Property", is
requesting that the property be zoned
Commercial.
After discussion, the Board agreed
that the property is commercial. The
type of commercial use is Commercial
Neighborhood (CN) only.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Lamb and
carried to approve the request.

ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY

Support to the FEMA Disaster Field
Office regarding replacing the Dixie

roof with a metal roof for approval.

seconded by Commissioner Valentine

that he had met with Mr. Allen, Clerk
of Court, and Commissioner Driggers
regarding the space options presented
at the last meeting for the Clerk. Mr.

regarding the Roy Ward Little League
Park. A reimbursement in the amount
of $50,000 has been received from the

the grant requirements was discussed.

projects were discussed. Arthur
presented a copy of an email from
Megan Wetherington, SRWMD. She
is inquiring if the county will remove
the handball court building from the
Community Center and if the county
will provide the stone for the 349 and
bridge projects. SRWMD is funding
the majority of the projects.
An easement of 50 foot in
exchange to extend the seawall to
cover the roadway washout was
requested. This location is in front of
the Old Bar property in Suwannee.
Motion by Commissioner
Valentine, seconded by Commissioner
Lamb and carried to table this issue
until the next meeting.
The Board gave Joey Lander,
County Attorney, the authority to
review and deal with the salary issue
regarding Jerry Hodge.
The DCA findings from the 2003
CDBG Projects were received on
February 22nd, 2005. We have 35
days to respond. Some of the findings
are inaccurate and we can deal easily
with those, but others we must make
decisions on. The clerk will need to
address some of the items.
Bellsouth' Work Order No.
53N71008N-FL029H623808 was
presented by Mr. Bellot for approval.

Sightings


turned the sand'into glass.
In the top picture, owner
Karen Wyckoff shows off
several of the glass pieces
made by the broken line.
Husband and co-owner, Art,
had a great example of how
atoms are changed from one
form to another for his Science
students at Ruth Rains Middle
School the following day.
Common window glass is
made by melting a mixture of
quartz sand (silicon dioxide),
soda (sodium oxide), and lime
(calcium oxide). As these


"It's Electrifying!"
Last Tuesday, March 22nd,
Dixie County experienced
some pretty severe weather.
Trees were uprooted, limbs
twisted and snapped and power
lines brought down. Mother
Nature was not in a good
mood, that's for sure!
At A-K Nursery, outside of
Cross City off US 19, the
power line in front of the
garden center not only came
down but left some truly
electrifying markings as the
unleashed electricity literally


6 .


ingredients are heated their.
atomic structure is changed
into one gigantic single
molecule. Crystal is made by
replacing the sodium and
calcium with other materials
such as lead oxide that don't
weaken the glass as much and
produce harder or stronger
glasses. Pyrex cookware
contains boron instead of
sodium and calcium and is
tempered.
Although the pieces at the
nursery are crude, they are a
reminder of how amazing our
planet is.
Our next photo (bottom) is
of a white squirrel that Jamie
Lyles spotted in her Old Town
home. Jamie called her mom,
Robin, when she first saw the
tiny creature to come confirm
that her eyes weren't playing
tricks on her. Robin quickly
got her camera out and took
pictures to use as proof that
they both weren't suffering
from hallucinations.
While the white squirrel
sighting isn't as rare as Big
Foot, it is a rare variation of
coat color for squirrels in our
neck of the woods. Generally
the pattern of brown/gray on
top and white on the.undercoat
is found in Dixie. Most likely
the squirrel spotted at the Lyles
home is an albino in which the


Dixie County


melanin (pigment) gene is
mutated. -
However, there is in fact,
one tree squirrel, which a
white coat seems to be a
characteristic of the entire
species. It's an Oriental Tree
Squirrel found in Thailand and
other parts of South East Asia.
Thanks for sharing your
rare find with us!
The Dixie County Advocate
is actively seeking unique
information animal,
vegetable, or mineral found in
Dixie County to include in
the Dixie County Sightings
column.
If you encounter something
unusual in Dixie County, give
the Advocate a call at 352-498-
3312 or email the picture and
information to
