Take me out to the ballgame... 1-2-3 Strikes Your Out At The Old Ballgame... but
Dixie County Little League definitely did not STRIKE OUT as the 2005 season got underway Saturday morning with
- picture perfect weather. Excitement filled the air as players, coaches, parents, grandparents and friends gathered at the
newly renovated Roy Ward Little League Complex. The players, all decked out in new uniforms, could hardly contain
themselves as they anxiously awaited to be called out on the field. There are 240 players on 19 different teams making
up 6 T-ball, 3 Minor Softball, 4 Minor Baseball, 2 Major Softball and 4 Major Baseball.
First -year President, Gary "Turtle" Montgomery extended a gracious welcome to everyone in attendance and
asked Bro. Jake Cravey to pray the invocation. He introduced the new officers for the coming season. They are as


follows: President Gary "Turtle" Montgomery, Vice-President Danny Flowers, Secretary Dawn Hart, Treasurer -
Rhonda Beauchamp, Player Agents Diane Lord & Cheryl Lord, Safety Director Jodi Spurlin, Equipment Manager -
Terry Roberts, Board Members Christy Roberts, Billy Sheheane, and Ed & Susan Brownell.
President Montgomery recognized members of the Roy Ward and Norman Lee families and thanked them for
the contributions that were made to the Dixie County Little League Program by their husbands and fathers. Ward and
Lee were brothers-in-law who worked diligently in getting the local program chartered in 1976.
County Commissioner Marcus Hays was on hand to express his thanks to the officers, board members and
parents for all their hard work. He also thanked Warden David Farcus and his officers for their outstanding

Holly Fremen Crowned 2005 Miss Dixie


& Megan Hunt Miss Dixie Princess
By Terri Langford
What's the old saying, "April
showers bring May flowers'?"
Well, this past Saturday, April
showers in Dixie brought out a
bouquet of some of Dixie's most
beautiful and talented young
ladies in hopes of being crowned
Miss Dixie and Miss Dixie
Princess.
The Dixie County High
School Auditorium was filled
with family and admirers who
were treated to an evening of
beauty and talent. The annual
event is sponsored by the Dixie
County Chamber of Commerce
under the direction of Kathryn
Mclnnis and a host of volunteers.
While the absence of two of
the three judges caused an hour
delay in the start of the pageant,
two substitutes were found and
the show went on without a hitch.
Vying for the coveted Miss
Dixie Princess crown were
Dylaina Ducksworth, daughter of
Mitchell & Karen Ducksworth;
Shamberlena Lynn Feltner,
daughter of James & Lolena
Feltner; Anna Fowler, daughter
of Tommy & Lisa Fowler;
Stephanie Fremen, daughter of
Steven & Regina Fremen; Megan
Hunt, daughter of Ronnie and
Marie Hunt; and Hannah
Morrow, daughter of Ricky &
Carol Morrow. The Miss Dixie
contestants were Holly Fre'men,
daughter of Steven & Regina
Fremen; Amanda. Hickman,
S ,- daughter of Thomas & Melody
,Hickman, Laci Johnson, daughter
?.. of Troy & Rhonda Johnson;

Flooding Along The Suwannee River

Now Affecting Residents

A "No Wake Zone" has

Buddy Lamb stopped in at the
Advocate office and informed us
that Goronto Springs and Purvis
Landing have been closed due to
water being over the roads. Log
Landing is closed to everyone
except the residents who live
there. As flood waters continue
to rise, there could possibly be
other park and road closings.
The "No Wake Zone" is
placed in effect to protect the

Cross City's Newest Radio Station

WCKO-LP Hits The Airwaves
By Terri Langford Staff Writer.-
Cross City's newest radio
station, WCKO-LP, 96.7 FM is
up and running, broadcasting
Christian songs and giving
listeners another choice in music,
as well as, being another venue
in which Christians can witness ....
God's Word.
The idea for a Christian radio
station came to Dixie County
High School's Media Specialist,
Judy Sumrall as she listened to WlllllllllllWllllll
students complaining about some
of the music that is played on the
more popular stations. She also
realized the impact that Christian
Rock has had in reaching out to
young people, bringing them .
lyrics about family values and
respect for themselves as well as
others.
Three years later, December
30th, 2004, and with the help of
her husband, mother and co-
worker, WCKO-LP went from a
dream of Judy's to a reality as
they broadcast their first show.
While the station's license is for
a low frequency station, with a
five-mile radius, some have
heard the show as far away as the
First District. Of course to reach
out that far the stars have to be in
perfect alignment, the weather
crystal clear and you have to be
holding your tongue right (just
kidding, it's just a weather
thing). Frank Whitehead. WCKO-LP's DJ. takes a call-in

Remembering John Paul HI
SPope John Paul II died last week at the age of 84 following a
lifetime of service to his church. John Paul II went beyond the
demands of his office, got out of the Vatican and took his message
tothe rest of the world at a time when it needed to be heard.
, He was born Karol Wojtyla in 1920, and was ordained a priest
i6l 1946, a time when the Roman Catholic Church was on insecure
footing in his native Poland, owing to the imposition of a secular
communist government that made no secret of its animosity toward
the Christian faith. But that didn't stop him from advancing in the
ranks. He became a bishop in 1958, an archbishop in. 1963, a
Cardinal in 1967, and Pope in October of 1978.
1 One unique thing about his ascending to the Papacy was the
Jarct that he was Polish. For centuries, all Popes had been Italian,
this despite the fact that his church recognizes the Apostle Peter,
wlho was Jewish, as the first Pope.
: Not being of the Roman Catholic persuasion myself I have a
problem with a number of that church's doctrinal positions, as do
most Protestants. And it is for this reason that I credit John Paul II
with doing an extraordinary job of ameliorating relations among
(hristians of various denominations, as well as reaching out to
Persons of other faiths, and all the while without backing down
from his convictions and the policies of his own church. Think
about that, and you'll realize that it was not an easy task.
: In 1981, a man named Mehmet Ali Agca attempted to assassin-
ate Pope John Paul II, for which he was forgiven by the Pope;
however the plot of which Agca was a part was traced to some
ligh-ranking members of the Communist Party in Poland and
elsewhere. Agca's failed assassination attempt resulted in the
exposure of a heretofore unseen agenda of the communist world.
SGetting rid of a Pope who was getting through to the down-
tirdden in communist and third world countries was important to
the leaders of the Communist Party. Here was a man preaching
Christ to people in parts of the world where the government's
official position was that God did not exist. After all, it was Karl
1Marx himself who called religion "the opiate of the masses." Plans
for additional attempts on the Pontiffs life were on the drawing
boards, but were never carried out.
" Pope John Paul II played a significant role in the defeat of the
Soviet Communist bloc in 1989. The following year, Soviet
President Mikhail Gorbachev was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize,
,an honor which should have been shared by the Pope, US President
Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher,
none of whom ever received that award.
-: In 1998, the Pope went to Cuba, which was and still is about as
communist a country as you'll find anywhere this side of China.
The population was predominately Catholic, but Fidel Castro kept
tle church pretty much in limbo, educating the children in
government-run schools where God was excluded the way the
ACLU would prefer that He be excluded in our own schools.


Letter From The Editor
BE PROUD DIXIE....
By Sue Chewning
If you have ever had a child participate in the Dixie County
Little League program you know that the program has.been kept
alive with a lot of heart, hardw6rk and not too much money. But
thanks to a $50,000.00 grant acquired by the County
Commissioners from the Parks and Recreation Department, Dixie
County can stand up and be PROUD!
The newly renovated Little League complex, located just off-
US 19, on the Airport Road, is on its way to become a place for
our children and grandchildren to play and play with PRIDE.
Our county officials are to be commended for their dedication
to this worthy cause. Keep up the good work ---- the more children
we get involved in sports and other good clean fun the less
trouble we will find them in elsewhere.
Try spending some of your time coaching, umpiring or just
cheering one of these or maybe all of them on -- you will
definitely be a WINNER for doing so and so will the child.
BE PROUD DIXIE!
P.S. It ws a great feeling Saturday to see the faces of so many
young women and men who once played on these very fields to be
wearing coaching shirts. It gives you a great sense of satisfaction
when you give back to a program that gave so much to you. Great
things happen when we all work together and give of ourselves.
Thanks.

Kendrick's Proposals To Allow Local
Government To Decide Where Tax
Dollars Are Spent ,
TALLAHASSEE: Each year, the Legislature allocates millions
of dollars to Florida's 67 school districts throughout the state, as
well as local tax dollars. Each school district must follow certain
restrictions, including class size requirements, to obtain the funds
and the local districts do not have the opportunity to decide how
these dollars are spent.
Rep. Will Kendrick (D-Carrabelle) has filed a bill, (HB 1595)
which will allow local school districts that meet specified class size
requirements to use the proceeds that are generated by the district
school tax for broader purposes. Currently, these dollars are used
much more restrictively.Rep. Kendrick's bill, Uses of the School
District Tax, will ensure that local school boards are able to make
decisions based on their needs. "Anytime we can give local
government the tools necessary to run effectively, it is good
government policy," said Rep. Kendrick. The.bill passed the PreK-
12 Committee on Tuesday and has gone to the Education
Appropriations Committee for consideration. If passed, the bill will
become effective on July 1 of this year.
Providing health care for the needy is an ongoing issue
throughout the U.S. Each county in Florida has citizens that are in
need of health care assistance. Rep. Kendrick has proposed a bill
that will provide assistance to these families that are in need of
healthcare.
HB 55 will allow counties with a population of less than 50,000
to pass an additional half-cent tax for indigerit healthcare services.
The tax increase would take effect pending voter approved
referendum by each county that meets the requirements.
The Voter-Approved Indigent Care Surtax will not only give an
increase to funding, but it will also give local control on what these
additional funds are used for. "This is a great opportunity to once
again allow local governments the flexibility of funds to be
determined at a local level, while helping some of Florida's most
vulnerable," said Rep. Kendrick.
With the passing of this bill, the affected counties will have an
increase in funds to help provide indigent health-care as well as.
health-care facilities. Rep. Kendrick hopes that this increase will
assist even more families with health-care, which will in turn save
lives. The bill has been passed favorably through both the Health
Care and the Finance and Tax Committees. The bill awaits
presentation by the Local Government Council.

Dear me, what was a dictator to do? If any harm befell the
Pope, his subjugated Catholic population might rise up in unison
and feed him to the sharks. Or possibly Christians throughout the
World would foment a retaliatory strike with the air support that the
ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion lacked. All this, and no longer a
Soviet Union to come to his rescue!
:: While confronted with this dilemma, the aging despot proved
ikhy he had been able to rule Cuba for 25 years: He was smart
6oough to do nothing, other than make sure that nothing bad
happened to the Pope. Fidel was a gracious host, and while he
didn't confess his sins or vacate his office, he chose to keep a lid on
his contempt for Christianity until the Pontiff left, thus vindicating
the authority that a man of peace can wield without a sword in,his
hand.
Let's hope that Pope John Paul II's successor can do as well.

FWC Releases 2004 Boating Statistics


Florida's 2004 boating statistics are out, and
again they are sobering.
The number of registered boats in Florida is
at an all-time high of 982,907 in 2004, compared
to 978,225 in 2003. Boating fatalities jumped to
68 in 2004 from 64 in 2003. In fact, fatality
numbers have increased slowly since 2000 when
Florida had its lowest number of boating fatalities
in many years.
Monroe County reported the highest number
of accidents and injuries, 98 and 57 respectively.
Pinellas County reported the highest number of
fatalities with seven. Palm Beach County
reported the highest property damage figures at
$8.69 million, including one incident that
accounted for $8 million of that total. The
second-highest property damage occurred in
Miami-Dade County with $1.2 million.
Even the good news wasn't really good. The
statistic that recreational boating accidents dipped
to 743 from 1,005 in 2003 reflects a change in the
amount of damage. an accident has to involve
before it counts. In 2003, an accident had to
involve $500 damage to be included in the
statistics. They had to involve $2,000 in damage
to make the cut in 2004 due to a change in the
law.
Statistics indicate experienced boaters may
fall prey to a false sense of security. In fact, more
than half the boat operators involved in fatal
boating accidents last year had more than 100
hours of boat operation experience.
The typical boating accident victim is not a
child or adolescent. He's a 22- to 50-year-old
male with many hours of experience in operating
a vessel. In most cases, if he sustained an injury,
it was not life-threatening. If he did 'not survive
the accident, most likely he drowned, because he
thought it uncomfortable, unbecoming or
unnecessary to wear a life jacket even if he
couldn't swim. Drowning continued to be the
leading cause of death in Florida's boating
accidents (65 percent).


FWC boating safety officials and officers
encourage boaters to consider life jackets to be
similar to seatbelts when it comes to their life-
saving potential. New types of inflatable life
jackets especially the waist-pack variety -- are
lightweight and hardly noticeable when worn.
"It simply makes sense to wear one when
you're on the water," said FWC Capt. Richard
Moore. "It's like the seatbelt in your car. If you
aren't wearing it when you find yourself a few
seconds from a collision, you may have waited
too late."
Also, excessive alcohol use continued to be
the leading cause of boating fatalities in 2004.
The effects of alcohol may be even greater on
boat operators than vehicle operators because the
combination of wave action,)hot sun and physical
exertion from being on the water compounds the
influence alcohol consumption can have on
people.
"As with .cars on land, it's always best for
boats to be operated by someone who hasn't been
consuming alcoholic beverages," Moore said.
"Designated drivers can save lives on boats, just
like they do on highways."
Moore said other suggestions for having safe
experiences on Florida's waters include taking a
boating safety course, filing a float plan with a
friend or relative each time you take to the water
and making sure you have the proper safety
equipment in working order. For boat operators
age 21 or younger, the boater safety course is a
requirement not merely a suggestion for
legally operating a vessel with 10 or more
horsepower in Florida.
More information about boating accidents is
available online at
http://myfwc.com/law/boating/.
To report resource or boating-under-the-
influence law violations, call the FWC's Wildlife
Alert hotline number 1-888-404-3922 or #FWC
(*FWC in some areas) by cellular phone.

Danny & Diane King Celebrate
30th Wedding Anniversary


April 6, 2005
Diane,
I can't believe that it has been 30 years since we tied the knot! I
love you more now than I did then, which is hard to believe,
because I knew the moment I laid eyes on you, that we were meant
to be together. Your smile starts my day, your love gets me
through each minute of the day. You are truly my "soul-mate".
I thank you for being there for me and for our beautiful family.
You are, by far, the best mother in the world.. .and grandmother.
If there was a metal given out to wives for going above and
beyond the call of duty and for putting up with husbands like
myself, you would most surely deserve one.
Happy 30th.. .Love, forever

Behold the Tabernacle of God
"Like One to Him"
Rev 21:3
Continued form last week. I the Day of the Lord, say between
that WHICH HE WAS in His humiliation and WHAT HE SHALL
BE in full glory, when all is subdued under His feet, and thus
ascends up into the height realms of the Father where God is all in
all, in this present realm there is a state of being known by the term'
AS HE IS. Thus the writer to the Hebrews, though glimpsing a,
brief view of what "man" is to become with dominion over all the
works of God's hands, stated that while we do not yet see man in
this full position, never the less we do "SEE JESUS." (Hebrews
2:9). We see Jesus! And we must see Him more and more for HEP
is the focal center of all that we shall receive, and into -, hose:
image we shall be fully transformed. HE is the way the Truth, and
the LIFE, and seeing HIM we shall be like Him, AS HE IS. I the
Day of the Lord, say now, what is His present status? What is His
image? What is His likeness? This involves the revealing of His
identity, and is embodied in the revelation of the "I AM." This also;,
involves all of this present processing unto spiritual maturity and.,
perfection, into the fullness of son ship, that we might find our-
identification in His identity, to become the christed (anointed),
pnes. To see Him AS HE IS and to become LIKE HIM is surely to.
become involved with His identity.
I the Day of the Lord, say far too much of our present
confession is still backdated in relation to our humiliation days. A,
hangover due to the lack of full separation from the shadow of the
,old. We would like to enter into the NEW, but we cling to strands
of the old, and to relinquish our grasp of the old requires some-,
strong measures of dealing by the spirit of God in our lives. How.,
slow of heart we are to believe what God is doing in His first fruits',
now. Continued next week.

Abundant Life And Living
Prayer- Since the disaster of 911 a great many people are
praying worldwide. Some had been praying before, some didn't
take time to pray. Some have asked how should they pray,
However and whatever the cause that
has brought us together in prayer, Thank God
we are praying together asking almighty God
to bless and protect America
and where there is unity there is strength.
Because we all want to be sheltered in the
storm, if one of us hurt we all will hurt
together. Sincere prayer changes things. God
will divert situations for us, His mercy
S. endures forever.
God is our only source and we are secure
Stckton in his love and there is power in prayer. (KJV)
2nd chronicles 7:14, states, If my people,
which are called by 'my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their
Wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their
sin, and will heal their land. Let's keep praying together, and God
will keep us under his wings of protection. Let us all pray a
special prayer for the men/women in the military, their families,
and keep us in perfect unconditional love, perfect peace, joy and
happiness. "Love Life and Live It".
Faith Baptist Church News
It was a beautiful Lord's Day today and we are always thankful
for the blessing God bestows upon us here at Faith. Bro. Jackie
was away in revival at Scrub Creek, and in the morning service,
Bro. Bobby Bryan filled in for him and did a wonderful job as Bro.
Bobby always 'does. In the evening service, Bro. Buddy Britton
filled in for us and he too did a fabulous job of delivering the
message God had laid on his heart. We are always thankful for the
blessings of God's people. The special music was.wonderful as
usual and if you missed either service today, you. truly missed a
blessing.
Our Sunday School attendance was down a little today, but that
always happens on the day the time changes. Lots of us forget to
reset our clocks that hour ahead. If you weren't here today, we
want you to know that you are missed and we look forward to
having you back with us next week.
Remember this week to pray for the sick. Lots of our folks are
out from various illnesses and we are praying that they will soon
be able to be back with us. We love you and miss you so' much
when you aren't here.
Come to Sunday School and church next week and invite a
friend. May God smile on you this week and keep you happy and
healthy until we see you next week.

Card of Thanks

The Word Made
Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"


Continued from last week.
I the son of man, say The
Trinity of persons in the
Divinity is from the council of
Nice, and was derived thence
into the Catholic Church and
(the churches) after it, and is
therefore to be called the
Nicene Trinity. But the trinity
of God in one person, the Lord
God the Saviour, is from
Christ Himself, and was thence
in the Apostolic Church, and
therefore is to be called the
Christian Trinity; and this
Trinity of God is the trinity of
the new church.
I the son of man, say there
are three summaries of
doctrine of the Christian
Church concerning the Divine
Trinity and at the same time
Unity, which are called the
Apostolic, the Nicene, ,and the
Athanasian creeds. 'The
Apostles creed was written by
men who are called the
Apostolic Fathers; the Nicene
creed, by an assembly of
bishops and priests who were
called together by the emperor
Constantine in the city of Nice,
with a view to dissipate the
scandals Arms' concerning his
denial of the Divinity of the
Son of God; and the
Athanasian creed, by a certain
person or persons after that
council.
I the son of man, say these
;three creeds were


acknowledged and received by
the Christian Church as
ecumenical and Catholic,. that
is, as the universal of doctrine,
respecting the Father, the son,
and the Holy Spirit, love you,
continue next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
We had a good time in church Sunday, as our Children's
Church presented some of the things to us that they've recently
been learning. It is very gratifying to see such enthusiasm for
learning about Jesus in their little faces! Our choir did its usual
fine job, after which we were treated to a couple of special songs
by our new singing group. Bro. Billy then brought God's message
with fervor, choosing his text from John 21:1-11. Sunday night
after another good message, we held our monthly observance of
the Lord's Supper.
Both our Women's Ministry and the Pastor/Deacons will meet
on Monday evening, April llth, to be followed by our monthly
Business Meeting on Wednesday, April 13th. On Thursday, April
14th, a Mid-year Associational Meeting will be held at Grace
Baptist Church. On Saturday, April 16th, there will be a Youth
Rally at New Hope Baptist Church, 6:00 P.M.
Sunday, we were'pleased to have several visitors with us. We
welcome you back anytime, along with any and all others who
would like to visit with us. Have a good week, and remember to
pray for one another, those on the church prayer lists, our people in
the military, and our President and other leaders. May God bless
and keep you 'til next time.

Steinhatchee Fishing Report


Wednesday Special
What's so special about Wednesday?
Wednesday s' I run a special where
individuals can buy a 'ticket' and go
offshore fishing without having the need to
put together an entire charter party on their
own. The Wednesday special came out of
people's needs, stemming from the
logistical difficulties of getting family or
friends together on a single day with
everybody's scattered schedules due to
work, children and so forth. For a hundred
and twenty five bucks you jump on and go.
It makes life simpler for some. I've found
out that some are using the trip to scout out
the charter prior to signing up the rest of
their crew for a full charter. Whatever
reason someone goes I'ni cool with it
because it's an opportunity to met and fish
with fresh people. Anyway, that could
explain the title but the title comes from the
following story I could have easily named
"Little Johnny goes to sea".
Mack Thomas, his wife Leigh,
daughters Rachel (10) and Tyler (6), Shawn
Elders, Lil' Johnny Blakely (14 yr old son
of local crabber Mike Blakely), Lil B and
myself set out last Wednesday for


Rachel and Taylor had a ball catching and try '
of this nice. catch of 24 grouper, the biggest bein
Bit Bend Charters)
adventure on the Gulf. Mack wanted his
wife, Leigh, to catch a big ol' grouper and
his girls to have fun on the water. Shawn
was there wanting a fatty but with had the
go with the flow attitude. For Lil Johnny it
was his first time offshore without having
to pull traps with his father.
Lil Johnny was locked on go. You see,
he and his father have picked up fish
carcasses from my boat for crab bait and he,
was more than ready to pick up an entire
live fish, on his own. His excuse for the
.trip was to graduate MIT (mate in training).
Lil B was showing him the ropes and knots
to be a mate. I listened and watched as Lil
B went through the 'how to' sessions and
was impressed with Lil B and how Johnny
paid attention picking up things, even the

details. I, also, saw through Lil
Johnny, in the mirror of my mind, and
further appreciated his attentiveness
because he was a Jack Russell terrier
receiving training in a hen house. I was
amazed he kept focused long enough to
learn anything; but he did. But when
school was out...he turned on full fish
mode.
After picking up the bait traps, we
went to 58' to troll, briefly. As the
trolling routine was explained, I could
.tell Lil Johnny was interested in what
was about to happen but expected to ..
simply bottom fish.
Wednesday is a mix day where I get .'
to troll around looking for new 'to me'
bottom while moving along to proven
waypoints. Some for you and a little M
for me type of thing where everyone (3
benefits. That is why I trolled first.
As 'luck' would have it, within five
minutes one of the four trollers bucked flat *
indicating that a ten-pound plus "bream"
had slipped the cork under the water. FISH
ON! Johnny on the spot, he reeled in the
first grouper. A twenty-six inch good
Sgrouper hit the ice.
The trolling gig was
successful, as time
3 2 didn't tick to long
S,0 8 3 before one of the
S 08 1- poles bowed over to
X! the glory of another

f short, but, in general,
the trolled up grouper
Were better than
Average size. In a
flexible rotation,
everybody was
having fun reeling in
some quality
grouper. The
technique was
working to the, point I
had a bird in the
o lake all the credit hand. Do you
2g l8lbs. (3/30/05 change what is
working? A spank
on the bottom does a body good.
When. no other boats were around and
once we passed over a great known bottom,
I decided to stop trolling after a peek-a-boo.
I trolled a peek over waypoint 'Lamar2'
(65') and counted back like a NASA blast-
off. Five, four, three...one, zero... and

steak and saying chew your food.
Thankfully, Lil Johnny decelerated and
worked an eighteen-pound gag grouper to
the boat.
From there we turned to put the boat on
hook, over that same good bottom. Leigh
got in her zone. A step to, my left on the
port side, she snagged three fine grouper,
"mono a mono" girl style with a 1-900-
GROUPER sound track. "Mack, you want
to handle this one? It might be about you,
buddy" I said. Anyway, the crew took on
some five to seven good groupers before
pulling off.
We trolled around some more
afterwards to pick up more grouper. The
grouper picked up on troll were eight to
eleven pounds. They were good fish. It
was fun to watch the pole flatten out on the
take. Goodness, everybody evolved to pit
crew efficacy to bring in.the live line, with
fish, as well as, the three dead lines. People
working together in a sport fishing
adventure is a wonderful thing to watch
evolve. It's a treat for the captain-and a
learning experience for all aboard.
Grouper are biting in 42-70 feet on
frozen and live bait. Actually, live bait
isn't necessary, work around to good
bottom where grouper are feeding and any
bait will work. Not to say I wouldn't have
live bait onboard. Trolling big-lipped lures
is working, as well. A great way to find
new bottom. The take home lesson is bop
from A to B using a combination of trolling
and bottom fishing to get a fine box of
grouper.
For trout fishing, work the three-foot
grass with jigs and shallow plugs arid
expect a good result by end of day. The
trout are on go mdde; it's up to you to be
mobile to find the nest.
Thanks for reading and take care or
yourself and the tackle.

No Wake Zones In Effect For

Suwannee, Santa Fe Rivers
Water levels on the Suwannee and Santa Fe Rivers have risen
the point where "no-wake zones" are now in effect, accordingto .e
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
FWC, in conjunction with the Suwannee River Water
Management District, have been monitoring the river levels. FWC
officers have been patrolling the affected areas of the rivers to
ensure the no-wake zones are enforced. ,
According to FWC's Lt. Donald Buchanan, area supervisor,
"When the water level at Branford reaches 26 feet, a no-wake/idle
zone goes into effect on the Suwannee River from the Highway 27
Bridge in Branford south to Fowlers Bluff, and on the Santa Fe
River from the mouth north to High Springs. The Branford level
reached 26.4 Sunday and is at 26.68 today." .
"At the present time, we're asking boaters to stay off the rivers
in these affected areas until conditions improve and the water levels
decrease. There are underwater navigational hazards which can
cause problems for boaters," Buchanan said. ,
"The wakes caused by the boaters running through the areas
cause damage to the property along the river front," Buchanan
explained. "Boaters need to know that they will be held responsible
for their boat wake and actions."
FWC officers are citing those boaters who do not obey the no-
wake zones with careless operation.
"FWC officers are also providing law enforcement security'in
these affected areas and will be on the lookout for suspicious
activity," Buchanan said. /

Little Known Facts
4 .,1 by Chaz Allen


Last Laugh


It was the joke of the town and' everyone seemed to know
it, except the president. Rutherford B. Hayes was a teetotaler, and
was not going to have any alcohol served in the White Ho~se
during his administration. Well, let me tell you, that didn't sit very-
well with some of the other so-called dignitaries at the time. For
one thing, some felt it was an insult to the heads of foreign
governments not to offer a polite libation as part of the welcome to
America and the. White House. One senator actually said, "I
couldn't stand conversing with half the congressmen there without
a couple of belts first."
Hayes wasn't always a nondrinker, but when he was elected to
the presidency, he decided that it would be a good example for the
rest of the country. Particularly perturbed were guests at White
House dinners who wanted to drink but were not allowed.. They
ridiculed Hayes and took to calling his wife "Lemonade Lucy"
because the first lady refused to serve anything stronger than
lemonade.
Eventually White House guests found a way to get around'
Hay6s's obnoxious prohibitions. With the assistance of a couple of
conniving stewards, and a few bribes greasing some hands, the
guests started to receive punch spiked with rum. The White House
stewards were being paid on the side to smuggle rum into the.
parties. It was the big joke. Everyone in Washington was in on it.
Guests at the White House were drinking Jamaican rum right
under the president's and first lady's noses and laughing about it.
There are even a couple of reports of more than one person getting
a bit tipsy. One congressman got a bit too loud after a few glasses
of punch, and had to be rushed out of the White House by friends
before the President got wind of what was up.
According to several reports by Washington insiders, things
were much more pleasant at White House parties now.
And maybe they were, but not because of the rum. You see,
It's a Little Known Fact: that President Hayes had the last laugh. In'
his diaries, Hayes tells us that a loyal steward had told him of the
bribes to bring rum into the dinners. So Hayes ordered that the
punch served at the dinners be flavored with the same flavoring
found in Jamaican rum. It worked! People were having a good
time, laughing, and even getting a little drunk and all on a punch
that had no more liquor in it than the lemonade.

You've heard about it.



Now be a part of it.




This is it. The Federal tobacco marketing quota system is over. No more plant-

ing restrictions. No more marketing cards. No more price support loans.

Instead, the USDA's new Tobacco Transition Payment Program will provide

money to eligible tobacco quota holders and producers to help in this transi-
tion that ends the old system. But sign up now or you will not get a 2005 payment.


Did you own a farm as of October 22, 2004, with a 2004 basic
marketing quota?

) Are you an owner, operator, landlord, tenant, or sharecropper who

shared in the risk of producing tobacco anytime between 2002 and
2004?

- Do you grow Flue-cured, Burley, Fire-cured, Dark air-cured, Virginia

sun-cured, or. Cigar filler/binder tobacco?


Please sign up between March 14, 2005, and June 17, 2005,

at your local USDA Service Center.

National League Of

Junior Cotillions
The National League of Junior Cotillions (NLJC), a program of
etiquette, character, education and social dance training for middle
and junior high school students, has announced plans to expand its
program in Florida to include Dixie County.
Says Anne Colvin Winters, NLJC National Director, "We will
be selecting a director for a local chapter who will receive
complete training and an exclusive territory for expansion.",
The organization currently has active chapters in Charlotte,
Volusia, Orange, Pinellas, Indian River, 'Santa Rosa, Tampa, and
other communities in Florida. Says Laurie 'Coventry Payne,
Director of the NLJC Charlotte Area Chapter, "This program is
making a positive impact on students in our area and we are
delighted to know that more young people will have the
opportunity for this vital training."
In today's, competitive and ever changing society, and the
growing trend of the lack of courtesy and respect in our schools,
NLJC is dedicated to making tools available to regain a sense of
honor, dignity, and respect in our young people.
Applications for nominations for cotillion director are currently
being received. For additional information call 1-800-633-7947,,

"Happy 9' Anniversary"
We started March out with a
big yard sale at the. Bears Den
parking lot. Everyone did well.
We had a great meeting with 69
people there. Jean Frith & Laura
Jones were our prize winners. It
was great seeing Roger Beriner
out of the hospital.
"Welcome" to new members
Kenny & Lisa Bell and Brad &
Gin Truell.
Well, the '-river is rising
again. I wonder if we will ever
see the sandbar again.
The April meeting will 'be
held Saturday, April 9th at 1:00
PM at Jimmy. Crews Park on
Jungle Drive Road in Old Town
(on the river). Bring a chair.
The Letts will fry flounder for
us. Bring a covered dish to -go
with it. We'll play the mating
game with a nice prize for the
winning couple.
We planned to have a poker
run the next day but with the
river so high we had to cancel.
Since it is our- anniversary
month that means it is time to
renew your dues. Also, let me
know if you are interested in the
January 2006 cruise to the

To The Family I Love & Miss Dearly .
Curtis, Patty, Jeremy, Dylan, Breanna, and Cheyanne
To my daddy:
Often I find myself thinking of you, Dad.
Of the support and encouragement you've
given me over the years.
Of your generosity, kindness and
guidance and especially of the many
talks that we have had together.
And it's when I think of these things
that I realize how much it has helped me.
To know that you've had many of the same
dreams and doubts that I've had in life.
Though I know I don't say it often enough Dad,
I admire and love you very much.
To my mommy:
My mother kept a garden, '
:. A garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
That gave my life its start.
She turned me to the sunshine
And encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
The seeds of self-esteem
And when the winds and rain came,
She protected me enough
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough '
Her constant good example
Always taught me right from wrong
Markers for my pathway
That will last a lifetime long
I am my mother's garden.
I am her legacy,
And I hope today she feels the love
Reflected back from me!!
To my brother:
Sometimes we don't see eye to eye
And don't hug cheek to cheek
Words that sound a wee bit cross
Sometimes the two of us may speak.
We may have a spat sometimes
Or disagreements now and then
And sometimes one might pout awhile
To see the other win.
But when nip comes down to tuck
The rest of the world doesn't mean the same
As we do to each other '
Cause no one is as special as ;
A sister or a brother.
To my babies:
If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it, just for you,
And, share with you, its beauty, on the days you're feeling blue.
If I could, I would build a mountain, you could call your very own.
A place to find serenity, a place just to be alone.'
If I could, I would take your troubles, and toss them into the sea.
But, all these things, I'm finding, are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain, or catch a rainbow fair;
but, let me be, what I know best,
A Friend, who's always there.
I promise to defend you, should the occasion ever rise,
And, I promise to wipe away the tears,
which might stream from your weeping eyes.
Let me be the trusted Friend, the one that you know best.
I will never leave you, on that, you can surely rest.

I love you all more than life itself and I would not be who I am
today without you. I thank God for blessing me with you (or you
with me-haha). Thank you for allowing me to become who I .'in
today, and although I am not there, always know that you/are
appreciated and loved everyday of you lives. I miss you guys very
much and love \ou with all ofmy heart. I
LOVE ALWAYS: Nicole LeAnn Hall

"RADIO"
Continued from page 1


It's been only three months
since the radio station began to
broadcast and the small station
has already began to feel success
with call-ins and positive
feedback from the community,
and most importantly from those
students who first gave Judy the
idea.
The station is part of Cross
City Communications. The
corporations "powers that be" are
President Terry Sumrall with
Jean McLeod and Diana Locke
acting Vice Presidents and
Directors. As a non-profit
corporation, the radio station is-
funded through private donations
and sponsorships. There is no
advertising, but announcements
about community events' are
broadcast free of charge. If you
would like to become a sponsor,
you can Email
thecrossroadz(%yahoo.com.
Frank Whitehead is the
station's DJ. A DCHS graduate
himself, Frank knows many of
the young people in the area and
is really excited to be a part of
such an uplifting experience.
Frank brings to the control board
both computer experience and
youth.
Judy gives BIG brownie
points to Scott Gantt, whose
knowledge of radio towers and
equipment has proven to be
invaluable. "We could not have
done it without Scott," Judy stated.


Think like a man of
action, act like a man of
thought.

anddirecting me through what proved to be quite a process in acquiring the licensing," Judy stated.
Judy ended by saying. "I have been blessed to have had the support of these wonderful people."
Another influence for the new communications group has been Judy and Terry's son Shawn and
his band "Burning Bridges". The Christian Rock group is comprised of local young men, Matt
iHerring, Josh Snyder, Robbie Vanosdol and Shawn, who have merged their God-given talents and. love
,of rock music together in order to reach out to youth who may otherwise turn a deaf ear to God's
NWord. The popular foursome will be taking their act on the road this summer as they join the Extreme
Tour. Be looking for a feature article in the Gainesville Sun this coming week in the paper's Scene
magazinene.
:., The daily format at WCKO-LP, 96.7 is Praise & Worship Music from 5:00 AM until 2:30 PM,
something that-~young and old alike enjoy, and then- from 2:30 PM to 5:00 AM the station plays
Christian Rock. You can call the request line at 498-3078 to hear your favorite Christian group and
(352) 578-4992 for announcements.
So tune your radio to 96.7 FM and listen to music that is will feed your soul and uplift your spirits.

LEGAL NOTICE

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Horseshoe Beach Utilities 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 1/06/05 show that our system exceeds the
standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DPBs), which includes both Total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and
Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standards for TTHMs and HAA5 are 80 and 60 micrograms per liter (ug/L), respectively. The TTHMs and HAA5
were detected at 666 and 700 respectively.
What should I do?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of childbearing age
may wish to seek alternative water sources. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs can choose alternative sources for
water ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated by an appropriate home water treatment device, until we correct the problem.
*Appropriate home water treatment devices-are those certified by NCF for reducing DBPs in drinking water.
Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years have experienced problems with their liver, kidneys,
or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What happened?
When the Waler Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water and decreases the' disinfection Byproducts.,
What is being done?
The Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & the Department of Environmental Protection to resolve this issue. We
anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12 months.
For more information, please contact C.M. Odom @ (352) 498-7225 or Sheila Brown @(352) 498-5234 Horseshoe Beach Utilities, P.O. Box 158,
Horseshoe Beach, FL 32648.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly(for
example, people'.in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing
copies by hand or mail

Springhouse Quilters News
The quilters of Springhouse had a fun day on March 19 as they
celebrated National Quilt Day at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop
on Main Street in Trenton. Several of the ladies brought their own
handwork and worked,on their different projects throughout the
day. The talents of some of the quilters were evident during the
day as different demonstrations were presented. Thanks to
Stephanie Metts for allowing Springhouse to celebrate this day
with the shop's customers.
The workshopjplanned for March 22 on reverse dyeing by Jan
Litzinger had to be canceled and in place of the workshop, some of
the quilters met and sandwiched some of their own quilts. This
group of quilters enjoys the fellowship of just being together to
help the members work on their own projects. We are always
happy to see completed work displayed at the show -and- tell time
during the regular meetings.
The next regular meeting of Springhouse will be on Tuesday,
April 12, beginning at 9:00 AM, with a 30-minute fellowship time.
This will be the last meeting for some of our winter visitors as they
begin their preparation to return to their northern homes. We will
miss each one until they return.
'The 2005 raffle quilt is on display at the Suwannee Valley-
,Quilt Shop with raffle tickets available. This is a black and white
quilt, with a small amount of red distributed throughout the quilt.
Raffle tickets may also be obtained from any of the Springhouse

Area Accidents


This vehicle received major damage when the driver pulled out into oncoming traffic, hitting a pickup truck
at the intersection of Chavous Road and US 19. \
By Terri Langford
On March 30th, 2005, Karlis A. Papa, 66 of Cross City, was traveling north on SR 349 when
several deer bolted across the roadway in front of him. In order to avoid hitting the deer, Papa
veered to the right, hitting the grassy shoulder, but still was unable to avoid hitting.one of the animals.
Upon impact, Papa's truck overturned and hit a chain link fence before coming to a stop.
Papa received serious injuries, even though he was wearing his seatbelt. He was airlifted by
helicopter to Shands of UF in Gainesville where he was treated for his injuries. Dixie County EMS
treated Papa at scene and transported him to the helipad.
Damage to Papa's 2003 Chevy truck was estimated at $4,000.00. No charges were listed on the
Florida Highway Patrol report.
On Sunday, April 3rd, FHP responded to an accident at the intersection of Chavous Road and US
19. While a report was unavailable at press time, witnesses stated that the driver of the car (pictured
above) pulled out in front of pickup truck causing damage to both vehicles.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 31st at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Spring is here, the trees, are putting out
their pollen, the flowers are beginning to bloom, grass is growing
and all's well in the world. Each 'day is the day -to count our
blessings and thank our Lord for a beautiful world.
It looks like the second quilt will be finished before Sarah
.Small has to go back to Illinois. She brought a neighbor who had
never quilted and it's fun to see the progress that people make after
they start, especially when they feel they can't quilt.
We had a visitor from Williston Who came over for help. She
had been given a flower garden quilt top, mostly put together but
there, will be many hours of putting it together. Some of the pieces
were from feed sacks and that meant it was started in the 20's
when most of the older people wore many dresses and skirts made
of sacks. We look forward to seeing it when it goes together.
Sarah brought in a beautiful tablecloth made in 1-inch nine
patch squares and appliqu6 on the borders. So pretty. Lois brought
in a Rainbow baby quilt that will make a child happy.
Lunch was so good. Marie made Frog-eye salad, it's made
from Tapioca but so good.

A Career in One Year
by7ohn R. Piersol, chairperson of Golf/Landscape/Forestry at L(
? Four of the six programs in the division of
GClf/Landscape/Forestry at Lake City
Community College are only one year in length:
i"igation technology, turf equipment technology,
pelt control operations, and a new one year
format planned for forestry for fall 2005. The
laiidscape program is still two years and golf is
tlhee years. So, with just one year of college, a
person can receive the education to pursue
lucrative career opportunities.
Currently there is very high demand for the
ope-year irrigation graduate. Employers are
ligation contractors, landscape contractors,
4gation parts suppliers, and golf courses.
A)out 15 students graduate from this program
every year, but twice that many could easily be
placed. Starting salaries can be $22,000 $35,000
\~rth career potential well beyond $50,000 per
year especially if self-employed. A dependable,
kn6Wledgeable irrigation contractor in a growing
area. could reasonably earn $100,000 and above.
,Irrigation technology is a one-year certificate
program that includes residential and commercial
irrigation system design, installation,
troubleshooting, and repair. Students receive
intensive classroom and field training during the
fall and spring semesters. Then there is a three-
we6k field class followed by a nine week paid
internship. Students complete the certificate
prdgram within one year and are immediately
employable. Students desiring further academic
instruction can go one more year taking primarily
general education and business classes to receive
an ,Associate in Science degree in Irrigation
Mangement.
Being a turf equipment manager is the hottest
career in the golf market today and the LCCC
turf equipment program is nationally recognized.
Unfortunately, this career is so unknown -that
there is a severe statewide and national shortage
oflturf equipment managers. Although people in
thd gol f industry know about this career and the
LCCC program; the general public has very little
knowledge of this lucrative field.
-The turf, equipment technology program
reqijires only eight months on campus coupled
witli a three month paid internship. Students learn
basic mechanics, equipment diagnostics, reel
mower sharpening and maintenance, and shop
organization and management. All of this is done


in a 15,000 square foot, nationally recognized,.
state of the art facility. The program is 50%

mechanics and 50% management as the golf
industry wants a person who is not only trained to
properly maintain $1 million worth of equipment,
but who can also maintain a neat, clean,
organized million dollar shop..
It is common for the golf/landscape/turf
equipment division to receive over 50 job offers
per year for equipment managers and have only
15 graduates. Starting salaries range fiom
$22,000 to $40,000 with a career potential of
$50,000 to $70,000. The golf industry is
screaming for LCCC turf equipment graduates,
but because of a lack of career awareness, it has
been difficult to attract students to this excellent
program.
The one-year Applied Technology Diploma
(A.T.D.) in Turf Equipment Technology
articulates into an Associate in Science (A.S.)
degree in Turf Equipment Management for those
students who want an A.S. degree, but the A.T.D.
is all that is needed to get a very good job!
The new one-year Applied Technology
Diploma (A.T.D.) in Pest Control Operations
consists of 24 credits that articulate into an A.S.
degree in Landscape Management. Students can
take this two semester program that emphasizes
lawn and ornamental pest control and go to work
as plant health technicians with lawn care
companies, landscape companies, and at golf
courses. This specialty alone can lead to very
good career opportunities, and if student want to
pursue the 64 credit A.S. degree in Landscape
Management, they only have 40 more credits to
take.
In the fall of 2005, LCCC's nationally known
forestry program is going to a one-year format
with an A.S. degree option available. This new
format has an intensive year of just forestry
classes producing an employable graduate.
These one year. programs can lead to very
lucrative careers. Whether you are a high school
senior or are looking for a second career, these
programs are worth strong consideration. For
more details on these four programs or any other
golf or landscape programs, contact Division
Chair, John Piersol at (386) 754-4225 or by e-
mail at piersolj@lakecitycc.edu.

FWC Launches New Hotline For
Alligator Complaints
, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) has launched a new toll-free telephone number to report
nuisance alligators. That number is 1-866-FWC-GATOR (1-866-
392-4286) and should be the primary telephone number for
alligator complaints, available to customers around the clock.
Alligators have shared marshes, swamps, rivers and lakes with
humans for many centuries in the southeastern United States and
are found in all of Florida's 67 counties. There have been increased
interactions between alligators and humans as more and more
people are seeking homes on waterfront property.
The FWC annually receives more than 15,000 alligator-related
complaints. The agency removes more than 5,000 alligators each
year when the reptiles pose a threat to humans or their property.
There are.many precautionary measures people should take to
reduce the potential for conflicts with alligators. To learn more of
the "dos and don't" of dealing with alligators, download the
"Living with Alligators" brochure from MyFWC.com/alligator.
Many Floridians have an appreciation for these ancient
crocodilians and have learned to coexist with them. However, if
you do encounter an alligator that poses a threat to people or
property and is more than four feet in length, the FWC urges you
to call the new Nuisance Alligator Hotline. All alligator complaints
will be forwarded to this new-dedicated hotline.
Alligators are an important part of Florida's heritage and play a
valuable role in the ecology of the. state's wetlands.- Visit
MyFWC.com/alligator for more information on alligator behavior
and about the Alligator Management Program.


Pictured above, the Old Town Red Hat Chicks enjoyed their monthly
gathering at the Olde Boarding House Restaurant in Trenton, Florida in.
February 2005. As always this bunch of Red Hats has a lot of fun with
they gettogether. Until next month...all you Red Hatters, be good. -

SWhatA Wascally Wabbit!
: Our Dixie Sighting for this
.' -week is a flow over from the
I..Suwannee River Youth
Livestock Fair and featured a
very talented rabbit.
hRidge Coe is pictured with
his rabbit, Peaches, who is
Splaying dead". That's right!
-A.. Ridge has trained the four-year-
Nr old rabbit to lay flat and stick
her paws in the air. What is
even more amazing is that he
did it during the Rabbit Show,
when the arena was filled with
people. Most rabbits were
skittish and ready to jump!
It is obvious that Ridge has
had "hands on" training with the
t"Mini Rex" rabbit. Ridge's
SMom stated that during bad
weather. Peaches is brought in
S. the house where she can be

Friends of the Great Su e R f h p ://Ridge is a 6x t grader at Ruth

the drums in the RRMS Band
and is a member of the RRMS
FFA Club. In addition to his
school activities, Ridge plays

Everything You Wanted To Know About
Horseshoe Crabs...& More
During the last several years I have participated in a very unique opportunity...the annual
Horseshoe Crab Count.
Despite it appearance it is a defenseless creature....the long tail is only use to right itself when the
waves upend it. It has 10 eyes and can even see UV light. If you have ever taken prescription
medicine then you should thank
the Horseshoe Crab for ensuring
its safety. The horseshoe crab
plays a.vital, if little-known, role
in the life of anyone who has
received an injectable
medication. .An extract of the
horseshoe crab's blood is used by
the pharmaceutical and medical
device industries to ensure that
their products, e.g., intravenous
drugs, vaccines, and medical
devices, are free of bacterial
contamination. No other test
works as easily or reliably for
this purpose.
The best website to learn
more about the Horseshoe Crab is http://www.horseshoecrab.org/nh/hist.html
The next best time to see these unique creatures is the full moon on Sunday, April 24. My favorite
place to observe the Horseshoe Crab is Shirred Island in the LSNWR. High tides on Saturday, April
23 are at 2:17am and 1:56pm. On Sunday the high tides are at 3:00am and 2:22pm. For those who are
non-technical, sunrise and sunset will do fine.
If there is one unsung hero in our environment that deserves our support it is the Horseshoe Crab.
I hope that will go to a beach and look arourid this month. Maybe one of the environmental groups in
the Suwannee River Basin could consider making this a project.
If you come out to'Shirred Island on the last weekend in April, I hope to see you.

baseball, fishes, loves riding his 4-
wheeler and is in the Soaring
Eagles 4-H Club. Wow! You go
Ridge.
Perhaps Ridge gets his love of
rabbits from his sister, Jenna, 13,
who is also raising a American
Fuzzy Lop rabbit "Pookie" for the
FFA. They share the care and love
for a third rabbit, "Dutches". Both
and Ridge and Jenna are wonderful
with their animals and take their
responsibly serious. Their parents,
Rex and Brenda are very proud of
their two children and encourage
them to always do their best.
Ridge will be breeding Peaches
soon and hopes that her offspring
are all as good natured and talented
as she is.
While Peacheg didn't receive
any trophies at the Fair, she most
surely won. the attention and
admiration of all the other
contestants and guests at the event.
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
e-mail the picture and information
to news@dcadvocate.net.
