Commission Highlights
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of County Commissioners met last
2Thursday, May 5th with a full agenda for their regular daytime
meeting. Issues heard by the Commissioners ranged from the
Horseshoe Beach canal dredging to the Florida Department of
Transportation Five-Year Work Program for Dixie.
*Skipper Jones came before the Board with a proposal from
,Joe Anderson of Anderson Columbia, Inc. Mr. Anderson
currently has a hanger at the Cross City Airport and offered the
Commission a "deal they couldn't refuse." Anderson wishes to
expand their current 330-foot hanger an additional 1,250 feet.


Dixie EMS personnel transfer Joseph Henry Stalvey from the Coast Guard rescue helicopter to a Dixie County Ambulance. Stalvey was the lone
survivor of a boating accident that occurred on May 4"'.
Kim Bechtold would hear a partial distress call from Swing and such a quick response from the Coast Guard," Spradley stated. He
alerted Spradley of the situation. added that EMS was there within 20 minutes of the call.
Spradley knew from the coordinates that Kim heard meant that See "Rough SEAS", continued page 5,
the boat was off the Horseshoe coastline. He also knew that


drove Tangular Kentrice
Williams, of Cross City, to a
pre-disclosed location for the
sale.
After Investigator Brannin
watched the drug transaction
take place he arrested both
Dunham and Williams without
incident.
The Dixie County Sheriff's
Office would like to get the
message out to drug dealers
that the DCSO has a No
Tolerance policy on drugs and
will be' strictly enforcing the
law.

In addition to the expansion they


would also make some renovations on the older portion. Cost for the project will be approximately
$250,000.00. Once the new, improved hanger is completed, they (Anderson) would donate the
hanger system to the County. The Commissioners agreed and the project will begin in the near
future.
Jordan Green and Bill Henderson of the Florida Department of Transportation presented the
Board %\ith the FDOT's Five Year Work Program for Dixie County. The first project scheduled to
-begin in July of 2007, is the resurfacing of 5.37 miles of SR 349 from Old Town to the Lafayette
S. County Line. In 2009 1.518 miles SR 51 in the Tennille's area will receive rigid
pavement reconstruction. Traffic lighting maintenance and traffic control
devices/system are also on the list with no definite date. 'While Commissioners
thanked the gentlemen for bringing the proposed project's list to them, they all
(Commissioners) asked that they take back, yet another plea for the FDOT to
consider placing a red light at the corner of US 19 and Continental Road. Green
noted that he and Henderson have been successful in cutting through red tape at
the FDOT and will do all they can to make it happen. Other requests from the
Jordan Green Commissioners included the repaving and widening of the Shirred Island Road
and CR 358/ Jena Road.

Letter to the Editor
Something To Think About Before We React & Regret
I was anxious to get home to see my loved ones so I was
focused on "my" issues and just felt like standing up and yelling
for some of these clowns to get their act together. I knew I couldn't
say a word so I just thumbed thru the "Sky Mall" magazine from
the seat pocket in front of me. You know it's really getting rough
when you resort to the over priced, useless sky mall crap to break
the monotony. With everyone finally seated, we just sat there with
the cabin door open and no one in any hurry to get us going
although we were well past the scheduled take off time. No wonder
the airline industry is in trouble I told myself.
Just then, the attendant came on the intercom to inform us all
that we were being delayed. The entire plane let out a collective
groan. She resumed speaking to say "We are holding the aircraft
for some very special people who are on their way to the plane and
the delay shouldn't be more than 5 minutes.
The word came after waiting six times as long as we were
promised that "I" was finally going to be on my way home. Why
the hoopla over "these" folks? I was expecting some celebrity or
sports figure too be the reason for the hold up.. Just get their butts
in a seat and let's hit the gas I thought. The attendant came back on
the speaker to announce in a loud and excited voice that we were
being joined by several U. S. Marines returning home from Iraq!!!
Just as they walked on board, the entire plane erupted into
applause. The men were a bit taken by surprise by the 340 people
cheering for them as they searched for their seats. They were
having their hands shook and touched by almost everyone who was
within an arm's distance of them as they passed down the aisle.
One elderly woman kissed the hand of one of the Marines as he
passed by her. The applause, whistles and cheering didn't stop for a
long time.
When we were finally airborne, "I" was not the only civilian
checking his conscience as to the delays in "me" getting home,
finding my easy chair, a cold beverage and the remote in my hand.
These men had done for all of us and I had been complaining
silently about "me" and "my" issues I took for granted the
everyday freedoms I enjoy and the conveniences of the American
way of life. I took for granted that others had paid the price for my
ability to moan and complain about a few minutes delay to "me"
while those Heroes were going home to their loved ones.
I attempted to get my selfish outlook back in order and minutes
before we landed, I suggested to.the attendant that she announce
over the speaker a request for everyone to remain in their seats
until our heroes were allowed to gather their things and be first off
the plane. The cheers and applause continued until the last Marine
stepped off and we all rose to go about our too often taken for
granted everyday freedoms. I felt proud of them I felt it an honor
and a privilege to be among the first to welcome them home and
say "Thank You for a job well done."
I vowed that I will never forget that flight nor the lesson
learned. I can't say it enough, THANK YOU to those Veterans and
active servicemen and women who may read this and a prayer for
those who cannot because they are no longer with us. GOD BLESS
AMERICA! WELCOME HOME! AND THANKS FOR A JOB
WELL DONE!!!!!

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
Your Emergency Medical Personnel and Family Medical
Practice are great. Recently my friend had a heart attack and needed
their services to be taken to Gainesville. She needed to have
surgery. The Dixie County EMS got her there in time, but a lot of
drivers did not give the ambulance the right-of-way. Remember the
next time, it could be you or a loved one. She is home now
recuperating. Remember, holding up the EMS could make a
difference. Please give the ambulance the right-of-way.
Sincerely,
C. Isc of Old Town



QUALITY LAWN CARE


STATEMENT BY TAXWATCH

ON THE STATE BUDGET
"A good number of things that needed to be repealed' or
reduced were to a good extent, in what turned out to be a very civil
session of the Legislature, said Domninic M. Calabro, President of
Florida TaxWatch. "There was a diversity of views and those
views were heard, to the benefit of Florida's taxpayers." 1
"The repeal of the Substitute Communications Tax and an on-
going phase-out of the Intangibles Tax are examples of antiquated
and unfair tax policies that we rightly leave behind as we forge
ahead with policies that promote a stable, predictable, and
competitive economy of the 21st century. Florida TaxWatch and
its task forces have led the charge on these issues and we commend
the Governor and Legislature for their efforts on behalf of
taxpayers," said Calabro.
"The budget reform legislation and accompanying. proposed
constitutional amendment are a big step forward. They will
strengthen long-range planning and budgeting in Florida and place
a limit on the amount of non-recurring money being spent ;on
recurring programs. Florida government is seeing the dawn of a
new age with establishment of the Government Efficiency Task
Force, which will recommend ways to improve future operations
and reduce costs," said Calabro.
"Likewise, successful efforts to. require 60% of voters; to
approve future amendments to Florida's constitution, rather thap a
simple majority, .will help reduce this very costly special interest
"minority rule" we've seen with past amendments. We hope
Florida's taxpayers will realize the financial burden many of these
amendments create and approve this higher threshold at the ballot
box in 2006," said Calabro.
The state budget increase of 7.7%, or $4.5 billion, outpaced;all
measures of Florida's substantial economic growth. The state
budget grew at a rate more than double the combined econoritic
growth rate .of 3.5% (inflation multiplied by population groWth
rate) and more than the most expansive measure of Florida's
economy, personal income of Floridians of 6%.
"The 2005 legislative session saw bold initiatives by the
Governor that have been thoroughly discussed and acted on by a
prudent, thoughtful legislature. The state seems to be focusing on
how proposed policy is executed and not just a broad sketch," stid
Calabro.
Florida TaxWatch is a private, non-profit, non-partisan
research institute that over its 25 year history has become widely
recognized as the watchdog of citizens' hard-earned tax dollars.
Our mission is to provide the citizens of Florida and public
officials with high quality, independent research and education ,on
government revenues, expenditures, taxation, public policies and
programs and to increase the productivity and accountability of
Florida Government. On the web at www.floridataxwatch.org

Almost a good idea
Should military personnel who receive traumatic injuries while
on duty--especially while risking their lives in combat--receive
special compensation over and above what they'd be entitled to
under existing programs and policies? I don't think many of us
would have a problem with this, and certainly I wouldn't. However,
I do have a problem with the way this situation is shaping up.
US Senator Larry E. Crag (R-Idaho) has proposed legislation
that would provide a lump-sum payment of up to $100,000 for
injuries such as loss of limbs, sight, speech, hearing, and for per-
sonnel whose injuries left them comatose. The proposal has the
backing of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson and Dr.
David S. Chu, who is Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and
Readiness.
Sounds good so far, but here's the catch: It would be an
insurance policy, paid for at least in part by premiums deducted
from the pay of personnel who opt into the program. Pay the
premium and you're covered, don't pay the premium and you're
SOL if you step on a land mine.
Now, let's say you're an Army National Guard private who got
activated and sent to Iraq. You're trying to support a family, so you
send every dollar you can scrape up back home to the wife and
kids. Even a fairly small deduction for a special insurance premium
would put your budget in a bigger bind than it's already in. So, you
decide to take your chances. But a car bomb leaves you totally
blind. Sure, you're entitled to a respectable array of benefits, but an
extra hundred grand would come in mighty handy at a time like
this. Too bad you couldn't afford the premiums.
SLets us also consider the hypothetical case of two Pfc's, one of
whom gets sent to the front lines and the other to a stateside desk
job: Obviously, the second one doesn't need the special insurance,
but the first one certainly does, so he signs up. This leaves the one
with the cush job getting more long green on payday simply
because he doesn't need the coverage, owing to his non-hazardous
assignment.
The bill has not yet become law, and some changes could
surface before it does; however, I checked out the release I got from
the VA and there was no mention of the coverage including a
death benefit for personnel killed in combat. All right, service per-
sonnel are provided life insurance, but if a catastrophic injury can
be worth an extra $100,000, why not a similar amount if you get
killed? Last I heard, that was pretty catastrophic.
The main thing wrong with Senator Craig's bill, of course, is
the idea that service personnel serving in combat zones should have
to pay a premium for insurance to cover the risks they incur as part
of their assignments. The coverage should be there, but the people
our government puts in harm's way should not have to pay for it.
Senator Craig is Chairman of the Senate Committee on
Veterans Affairs, and was instrumental in promoting a one billion
dollar increase in discretionary spending for the Department of
Veterans Affairs, so there's no doubt that he's a friend of those
who serve and have served in the military. Senator Craig's bill
providing increased benefits for severely injured service personnel
is almost a good idea. Just eliminate the insurance premiums and
be sure it includes coverage for death under combat-related
conditions, and it will be a well-deserved benefit for America's
finest.

Correction
.In.the May 4th issue of the Dixie County Advocate, we reported
that George E. Hurlocker was at fault in an April 29th accident that
involved Mr. Hurlocker and Karen Dixon. A review of the accident
report .filed with the Florida Highway Patrol, notes that in fact
Dixon was the part at fault, having made a U-turn into Hurlocker's
laiee, hitting him and ejecting him off his motorcycle.
We are very sorry for this mistake.

organization working to locate and recover missing children and helps to raise awareness about ways
to prevent child abduction, molestation and sexual exploitation. In addition, NCMEC acts as a voice
and advocate for those too young to vote or speak up for their rights our children.
The NCMEC works in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Justices' Office of Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency Prevention in coordinating the efforts of various community-based agencies
that include law enforcement and schools in an effort to break the cycle of violent crimes against
W.








-S, ', *A


Children of all age groups met outside the Old Town Elementary Atrium for an entertaining lesson i now
to be safe.
children..From 1984 2003 the NCMEC has played a role in the recovery of more than 80,000
'children and handled more than 1.8 million telephone calls through their nationwide hotline, 1-800-
THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) and received more than 183,000 reports about sexually exploited
children on their CyberTipline www.cybertipline.com.
Telan presented a power-point presentation with the message, that as parents and guardians, we
must do all we can to keep our children safer. The rules of safety are simple, 1-make sure you know
where your child is at all times, 2-never leave your child unattended, 3-be involved in your
children's activities, 4-listen to you children, 5-take the time to talk to your children, 6-teach them to
say NO,.7-be sensitive to any changes in their behavior or attitude. 8-be sure to screen babysitters
arid caregivers, 9-practice basic safety skills with your children, 10-remember... there is no substitute
for your attention and supervision.
Parents were also given several good brochures that further explained some of the challenges in
keeping our children safe in today's fast-paced and technological society. A website called
www.NetSmartz.org is a great place to learn how to be safer while on the Internet. Know your
neighbor. If you want to find out what Sexual Predators/Offenders are in your neighborhood, go to
www.fdle.state.fl.us.
Also speaking at the event was Marti Marshall, Legal Aide for Senator Nancy Argenzono's
office. The recent death of Jessica Lunsford and two other young girls has lead Florida lawmakers
to reevaluate our current laws that deal with sexual predators, Currently there is a bill that has been
brought before the House, HB 1877-Jessica Lunsford Act. This bill aims to intensify the penalties


Wi,












Gir!Scolut Troop 1039 entertained the children while their parents learn
about keeping them safe from predators.


against sexual predators. If
passed, it will increase the
state's abilities to monitor
convicted sexual offenders and
sexual predators upon their
release from prison. It will
strengthen and expand the
background screening
requirements for contract
employees working on school
grounds and require county
probation officials to search the
sexual offender and sexual
predator registry in an effort to
notify communities of any
sexual offenders or. predators
living in the area.
Marshall stated that Senator
Argenzeono is commented to


passing this bill as the first step in helping to make our children safer.
Others speaking at the event were Superintendent Dennis Bennett, Principal Howard Wadsworth,
and Dixie County Sheriff's Resource Officer P.J. Hope.
While the adults were inside at the workshop, children were treated to some special care from
Girl Scout Troop 1039, Sherriah Filipponi, Miranda Hunt, Ashley Long, Liz Daniron, Cassie Land,
Taylor Corbin and Kristen Weeks. The girls not only entertained the children with songs, they also
performed skits, showing the children what to do and not to do when approached by a stranger.
Later in the afternoon, children were given DNA kits by the Dixie County Sheriff's Office.
Prior to the main event, all guests were treated to a hot dog lunch. Many thanks to the cooks and
to those who donated the food; Cypress Inn, Mark Hatch, Foodland, Florida Food Service, Pat
Gooding, PTO, and Pepsi.
Additional "thanks" go out toall the volunteers, Kathryn Mclnnis, Lisa & Charlie McMullen,
Jeff & Tammy Stemple, Barbara Young, Tracy Locke, Gina Long, Vickie Willis, COPS Group,
Vicky Hunt, and Debbie Alcorn. We couldn't have done it without you all!
This workshop came about due to the brutal loss of several young girls whose stories have
touched our nation. While those crimes were here in Florida, it is important to know that we have
our own list of children, right here in Dixie County that have become part of the statistics of abused
children.
With the heighten awareness; Lisa McMullen felt it was time to share her story. Lisa and her son
Travis are no strangers to what it is like to live the horrors that tens of thousands of children live
each year. When Travis was just a year old, a family member abducted him. ft took Lisa five long
years to get her son back and during those years he suffered abuse.
Lisa and Travis brought the idea of the workshop to the PTO who embraced it and went with it.
With hard work and a lot of dedicated parents, Saturday's event was a success. "If we can save just
ofe child from being abused or abducted with the knowledge brought to the parents and children
here today, then it was worth it," stated Lisa.

"HIGHLIGHTS"
Continued from page 1
*On the same lines, Mike Cassidy, City Manager for the Town
of Cross City, came before the Board with plans for putting a four-
way stop at the intersection of CR 351 and Barber Ave. The plan
would include the possible removal of off-street parking in front of
the Courthouse and area in front of the Post Office.
Commissioners and Cassidy also talked about the possibility of
removing the palm trees located in the parking lot across from the
Courthouse, which would give the lot an additional 20 spaces.
Cassidy promised to keep the Commissioners updated on any
funding and/or permitting from the FDOT.
Joe Price Ruth, Recycling Coordinator and Mosquito Control
Coordinator, notified the Commissioners that they had begun with
the mosquito-spraying program. With area flooding and
unseasonably rainy weather for our area, the mosquito population
promises to be exceptionally bad this year. Residents are urged to
stay indoors during dawn and dusk hours. If you have to be out,
wear protective clothing and/or repellant.
+Dick Edwards notified the Commissioners that four (4)
applications for Federal Emergency Management Hazard
Mitigation Grant funding have been submitted on behalf of the
County. The request was for a minimum of $603,458.00 that will
go for projects that range from retrofitting the EMS
Communications Building, to dredging the Airport and Belly-Deep
(Timbers and Oliver Street) Canals to providing storm sewer
protection for the EMS Operations Center/County Office Building
and Cross City Town Hall.
Edwards also hoted that the deadline for Florida's Small Cities
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications is
May 19th. Dixie County will be applying for $750,000.00.
+Michael Chaney from the Florida Housing Coalition spoke to
the Commissioners about the County's SHIP Program. Florida
Housing Coalition is a non-profit group that provides free training
for counties on the SHIP Program. In recent years, Dixie County
has not been in compliance with state regulations with the SHIP
Program. Chaney has been working with the County's CDBG &
SHIP Facilitator Dick Edwards, Cindy Dey, County Finance
Officer, Arthur Bellot, County Coordinator and Commission
Chairman Marcus Hays, on getting the County back on tract.
After weeks of training and revamping, Chaney feels that Dixie
County should have no future problems in the future in receiving.
the valuable SHIP funding. Chaney added that the Legislature
would be adding an additional $1 million dollars, statewide, to the
pot, due to damages incurred by last years hurricane season.
The next Commission Meeting will be held Thursday, May
19th at 6:00 pm.

"ROUGH SEAS"
Continued From Page 1

It was around 6:00 pm when the overturned 19'6" Aqua Sport
boat was spotted by a Coast Guard helicopter. The three fishermen
,were found near their vessel. Stalvey 'and Hinton were airlifted to
the Cross City Airport by the Coast Guard rescue helicopter where
Dixie County Emergency Medical Units began treatment on the
men. Hinton required immediate care and was transported by
ShandsCair, but died enroute to the Gainesville hospital. Stalvey
was transported to Shands UF by Dixie EMS.
Swing, who was found dead at the scene, was brought in by a
Coast Guard vessel to the Jena boat ramp and picked up by Dixie
EMS.
According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) investigators, Stalvey stated they had been
trying to come back to shore when a wave rushed over the
transom, causing the boat to overturn. Both Stalvey and Hinton
had on their life jackets, but Swing was not able to put his on
before the boat capsized. Spradley noted that the water
temperature was around 68-69 degrees and that they wouldn't have
lasted the night.
SeaTow, captained by Sammy Royal, brought the boat back to
the Horseshoe Beach Marina where it was examined by FWC
investigators before being turned over to family members.
"This has really been tough for us here at the Mirina,"
Spradley stated. "I have known Mr. Swing for over ten years and
had even been fishing with him on occasion." "It's tough enough
as it is when you lose someone out there, but it's even harder when
you know them," he added. Spradley ended by saying, "Our
condolences go out to all the families."
The accident continues to be under investigation by the FWC.

will meet the priorities and the
values of the citizens of this
state," said Rep. Kendrick.
Rep. Kendrick's chief
responsibility will be to help
resolve the differences
between the House and Senate
Agriculture and Environment
budget.
The Agriculture and
Environment Committee will
review budget allocations for
the Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, the
-Department of Citrus,
Department of Environmtental
Protection and the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. Governor Bush
has recommended a budget
totaling $2.8 billion, for all
four agencies.
The Agriculture and
Environment Appropriations
committee oversees the budget
for several areas that are vital
to Florida. Saving Florida's
everglades, land acquisitions,
beach re-nourishment and
restoration, promoting and
preserving Florida's
agriculture, state parks,
enhancing the 'Wildlife
Commission's response
capabilities and preserving the
Florida Keys are areas that
could not thrive without
appropriate budgeting.
Rep. Kendrick is honored
at the opportunity to serve on
the Budget Conference
Committee. The new' state
budget will begin on July 1 of
this year and will end on June
30, 2006.

Behold The

Tabernacle Of

God
Rev 21:3
"Like Ones To Him"
I the Day of the Lord, say
The Spirit is leading onward
into a projected vision and a
higher Spirit realm, into the
day of the Lord. "I was in the
Spirit in the Lord's day, and
heard behind me a great
voice... and I turned to see,the
Voice that spake with me."
(Revelation 1:10, 12). THIS IS
IMPERATIVE, in the
development of the central
supremacy of Christ, that HE
stand between us and our past.
When John was in the
sphere of the Spirit, under the
full control of the Spirit, the
Voice which he heard speaking
to .him was BEHIND him,
between him and all of his
past.
I the Day of the Lord, say
No more cduldshe identify with
the old order and try to drag,
some of it onward into the
new. And, praise God, no
longer were there any regrets
concerning the past, for now to
view the past. he must see it
THROUGH Jesus Christ, and
thus would see how God has
purposed and used it all,
working the evil into good, and
bringing him to this very hour.
I the Day of the Lord, say
When HE, WHO IS THE
LIGHT, stands between us and
our past, but we shall be able
to view the whole through the
light of Christ, and see it for all
that He meant it to be, leading
us into the victory of the
present. Continued next week.

ABUNDANT LIFE & LIVING
This is the day God has made I will
iL rejoice and be glad in it. Life is good. Start
each day with thanksgiving to God who is the
source of all life, deeply inhale and slowly
exhale, enjoy the breath of life and feel the
very essence, which causes every atom to
work in divine order.
Lucille Stockton Take time to laugh, share a happy thought
with someone, reflect on some fun things you
did, it can sometime save a life. Pause at intervals during the day
and observe God's beautiful creation. Look at the trees swaying in
the breeze. Smell the flowers in bloom. Watch the birds and bees
flitting by in the bright sunshine. Look up at the blue sky with
traces of grey and white clouds moving about in the beautiful
elements, do something good for yourself every day, don't let a
day pass by with out doing a good deed for someone in need.
There are many of God's souls in need of someone to share a
smile with them. Sharing love and caring is what the world need
Enjoy every minute of every day. Then thank God for the
wonderful day and how you shared his love with others. For it is in
: Him we live, move and have our being.... Acts 17: 28 (kjv).

On May 3 eighty-four women from eleven area churches met at
the Levy County Quilt Museum for an afternoon of fellowship and
lunch. The ladies of the Quilt Museum cooked and served the
delicious lunch.
The speaker was Cheryle Touchton of the "Pocket Full of
Change'Ministries" who showed beautiful videos and spoke of her
travels throughout America. The program closed with the group
singing "Bless Be The Tie That Binds" and the Lord's Prayer.
Then there was time to view all the beautiful work of the quilt

The tables were decorated by the women of the Old Town
United Methodist Church in red, white and blue for Memorial Day..
The next Fellowship Day will be November 1, 2005. Hope to see
you there.


The Word Made
Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
I, the son of man, say many
people even to this day,
separate the Divine of the Lord
from His Human., They
acknowledge the Divine of the
Lord in a trinity of persons.
I, the son of man, say this
trinity is in one person and the
Lord is that person, for a
person is a man and a Divine
person is God who is a man.
I, the son of man, say in the
Lord there is a trinity: The
Divine Itself which is called
the Father, the Divine Human
which is called the Son, and
the Divine Proceeding which is
called the Holy Spirit.
I, the son of man, say one
Divine by itself is not given,
but must be trine; and this trine
consists of esse, existere and
proceeding.
I, the son of man, say the
Lord made His Human Divine
even to it's ultimates, which
are called flesh and bones. He


Himself manifests to his
disciples and said, "yea, a
spirit hath not flesh and bone
as yee see me have."
I, the son of man, say God
now is more a man than the
angels. Love you, continued
next week.

Steinhatchee Fishing Report
Five gallon bucket Trout
Trout are biting in Steinhatchee. They are biting left of the
river. They are biting right of the river. They are biting pink
grubs, candy corn grubs, electric chicken grubs, white with pink
swimmy tail grubs, Catch 2000 plugs, Top Dog, Jr. baits, live pin
fish, 'shiner tails', live shrimp, dead shrimp, shrimp gumbo,
shrimp scampi, boiled shrimp, grilled shrimp, shrimp omelets,
shrimp burgers... Sorry, I got a little carried away. But, judging by
the number of trout I've seen being carried up the dock in five
gallon buckets, if you happen to see a five-gallon bucket floating in
the Gulf, fish around it. It's holding trout.
Capt. Steve Kroll brought in a trout earlier this week that had
more than half its' body jutting above the rim of the five gallon
bucket. The fish weighed eight and half pounds. It took a pink
five-inch Salt Water Assassin over some rocks south of the river.
Capt. Steve pointed out exactly where the fellow should cast the
jig. The fish hit before the lure got good and damp. At first, he
thought the fellow had a redfish, but when it wallowed on the
surface Steve thought small. cobia. Near the boat, it flashed
showing the specks and the net began to shake in Steve's hands.
When the fish was brought aboard, the fellow was nonchalant
about the catch. He was a 'newbee' to the saltwater game. It was
the fish of a lifetime and he had to be informed of that. Capt.
Steve took several pictures of the fish; one picture weighed a
pound and half.
Now I know there are some old timers out there saying, "we
used to cull fish that size back in the day". But, grandpa it's 2005
and it seems to me God stopped making those models in the early
70's. Great catch Capt. Steve Kroll running Pepperfish Guide
Service.
Redfish are biting mighty fine on the skinny water rocks. Gold
spoons and jigs popped over them during the rising tide are putting
arches on the outfits. The dogged fight of a red fish is well worth
the effort of working for them.
Grouper are taking frozen and live offerings from 40 feet on
out. Start in short water, work your way out and end in short watdr
to eliminate the long boat ride in. Trolling is picking up a number
of grouper and some king fish are whacking testing the drags on
occasion. For me, I like catching fish several different ways.
When the grouper are hitting the bottom baits, as well as, the troll
gear, I love it. And then you get a good king fish as a bonus...
count me in.
In some areas, amberjack are hoarded up like wild dogs.
We've been using single hook top water and fat shallow darting
plugs for some action I'd love to film for ESPN Saturdays. Free-
lined live baits are a guaranteed belly grunt for the anglers. If
you've never enjoyed eating one of our Steinhatchee AJ's, you're
missing a treat. They are fantastic table fare regardless of the way
you cook them. Keep what you'll eat and toss the rest back for the
next kid.
Thanks for taking the time to read. Take care of yourself and
the tackle. -Capt. B
The Steinhatchee Fishing Report is brought to you by Captain Brian Smith
of Big Bend Charters in Steinhatchee

filled early in preparation for the night's festivities. It was a.
Mother's Day celebration as the first 100 mothers through the gate
received a flower courtesy of the Cameron Asbell Insurance
Agency. Almost a carnival like atmosphere was in the air as many
outside vendors were on hand selling food' and beverages.
Everyone on hand certainly got their money's worth as the show
lived up to its hype. The night got off to a spectacular start with
the wall of steel. Stunt driver Chuck Rush, successfully piloted his
"Junkyard Dog" through two cars standing up on their ends. The
flagpole race in which drivers made a full lap around the speedway
then around a center obstacle followed. Also there was a reverse
race, this required drivers to circle the speedway entirely in
reverse. One of the most popular events of the evening was the
boat trailer race. Cars took to the high banks pulling boats of all
shapes and sizes, and the winner had to have his boat still on the
trailer.
Robbie Powell was victorious in the Figure 8 Pro Car race. The
driver of the Retro Elevator #25 raced from the rear of the field to
claim his second consecutive win. The School Bus Figure Eight
was the first event following a brief intermission. An event that is
always a fan favorite pleased the capacity crowd for all twenty
laps. When the hands all played out Ronnie Schrieffels took home
a very hard fought win.
A co-pilot never has been as important as they were in the next
event. The blindfold race was a great delight to the crowd. The
driver, with his vision completely obscured had to totally depend
on the verbal instructions of the passenger as they circled the
speedway. The destruction of not one but two demolition derbies
would wind down the night's festivities. As the fans began to exit
the facility, the "Green Mamba" jet car melted down three of the
disabled cars left behind. From the sound of the cheers throughout
the night, it was a wildly successful evening of entertainment for
one and all. .
Next week, the entire Bronson Racing series, including
Modifieds, Hungry Howie's Sportsman, Pure Stocks, Thunder
Cars, Mini Stocks and Harvey Wallbangers will be in action. In
addition, the Race Cars of Yesterday will join in on the funi. Gates
will open at 5:30 and racing will start at 7:30 as always.

Spring Training Underway At Dixie County High School


Buddy Martin's Weekly Sport
Commentary
No roses for

Florida-breds
OCALA-- If you drove by this particular
horse farm at more than 30 mph, you could
easily miss the inconspicuous brown sign
outlined in bright blue that reads "Kinsman,
Stable." It's fairly ordinary to be owned by one


Buddy Martin
Sun Herald


of the most famous
people in sports,
George
Steinbrenner.
Like other of
the many horse
farms in Marion
County, Kinsman
sweeps across the
rolling green hills
and is framed by
graceful oaks
which hold the
es orets of ouir


forefathers. But it's nothing special by horse
farm standards around North Central Florida.
The grass is not pin-striped nor is there
anything Gotham-like.
Kinsman is dwarfed by the 5,000-acre Live
Oak Stud owned by Campbell Soup heiress
Charlotte Weber, just across the narrow two-
lane 95th Avenue-Road.
On Saturday, the Yankees owner wasn't
-home. He was in Louisville trying to root home
his first Kentucky Derby winner, Bellamy
Road, one of the race favorites.
Bellamy Road, named after an Alachua
County road built in 1824, which once
transported Confederate troops, was bred at
-Ocala Stud Farm and born near Gainesville at
Snrooty Fox Farm. He came at a bargain
basement price for a man who spends millions
I-onr washed-up baseball players.
It's been a tough week for George's last-
place' baseball team, which finally broke its
losing streak Saturday against the A's. He
-hadn't been granting interviews about his horse,
or his baseball team until he broke the silence
Saturday on the ESPN pre-Kentucky Derby
telecast with announcer Kenny Mane.
As always, Steinbrenner wanted badly to
win. The difference was that you can't really
buy a Kentucky Derby winner like you can a
pennant. George's baseball team has as $205-
i million payroll. He bought the .horse for
$87,000.
In horse racing, George wasn't even
?necessarily the best in the small town of York.
:Irpnicall. his neighbor across the street at Live
;Oak stud, Weber, was also in Kentucky trying
to \\in a Derby with her horse, High Fly. And
L.like Steinbrenner's Bellamy Road, High Fly
'was being trained by Nick Zito, along with Sun
K. King,. Noble Crossing and Andromeda's Hero.
,.. The difference was .that Bellamy Road
carried the colors of a Florida-bred, one of six
tr) ing to \% in the biggest horse race of all. Since
Needles crossed the finish line first at Churchill
'-Do% ns in 1956, there have been six' Derby
"winners from this state. Following in the hoof
-,prints of Needles were Carry Back (1961),
: Foolish Pleasure (1975), Affirmed (1978),
; Unbridled (1990) and Silver Charm (1997).
The last horse to win the Triple Crown was
'Ocala-born Affirmed. Another Ocala horse,
SSilver Charm, barely missed it at the
'97Belmont.
So horse racing in Florida is more than just
a small cottage industry.
The other products Sunshine State products
competing in the Run For The Roses were A
fleet Alex, Closing Argument, Spanish
i Chestnut. Flower Alley and Buzzard's Bay.
Bellamy Road went off as the favorite,
followedd by A fleet Alex.
It % wasn't exactly a banner day.for-the locals.
None of the Florida horses would wear the
rose garlands, on Saturday afternoon. The upset


E 'RR

REP


winner was Kentucky-bred Giacomo, a 10-to-i
long shot, marking the 22nd time in the last 25
years that the favorites have failed to win.
Florida horses were second and third.
Closing Argument, owned by Ocala lawyer
Irwin Weiner and his wife France, was a
surprising second, followed by A fleet Alex, a
Florida-bred owned by John Martin Silvertand.
Bellamy Road, which had won his last two
races by a combined 33-plus lengths, finished
seventh. None of the five horses trained by the
noted Nick Zito finished in the money.
All of which proves once again that the
Kentucky Derby is not only one of the most
unpredictable sporting events on the planet, but
among the most difficult championships to win.
Quick Jump Starts
1-Memo to Kellen Winslow Jr.: Watch a
few Evil Knievel videos before your get on
another motorcycle.
2-You might say Jacksonville's ships finally
came in, but with those big boats leased for the
Super Bowl came the $1.8 million bill for the
shortfall.
3-OK, so do we ask Dr. Jerry Buss to take a lie
detector test after that interview with Jim Gray,
or just take him at this word that he doesn't
'have a No. 1 candidate yet to coach the Lakers?
4-In retrospect, wouldn't Kwame Brown, the
deposed No. 1 draft pick of the Washington
Wizards, have been better off to have signed
that $30 million contract or even that
scholarship offer from Florida?
5-Menu Gnobli is the best basketball player
most of us never saw until San Antonio's
appearance in the NBA Playoffs
Short Stuff
Urban Meyer can make $2.5 million if he
hits all his bonus incentives next season, but
that would have to include an SEC title and
national championship ... If Ike Hilliard winds
up playing for the Bucs next season, he would
be the third member of the national champion
1996 Florida receiving corps to do so,
following ex-teammates Reidel Anthony and
Jacquez Green ... Is anybody at all surprised
that Reggie Fowler, the guy with the fake
football resume, is no longer the lead investor
on the deal to buy the Minnesota Vikings?
clipboard
The Urbanization of Gator football
Either Urban Meyer is going to be a
coaching burnout victim in 10 years, or he's
going to revolutionize the way college coaches
handle athletes.
Meyer's in-your-face, in-your-business
approach to the Gator players has created a
buzz. He has made it a mandate for all his
coaching staff to check on whether players are
going to class, which girls they are dating, who
they are hanging around with and if they're
going to church on Sunday if their parents have
asked them to go. The coaches also drop by the
players rooms at night for unscheduled visits.
"I don't buy the idea that you can't know
every facet of a player's life," said Meyer. "In
fact, show me a coach that believes that and I'll
show you a team that I want to play."

Keeping Internet Shopping Safe


(NAPS)-Online stores offer
great benefits to shoppers
including 24/7 convenience,
price breaks, the ease of order-
ing from your own home and
the variety available from
their Web sites. Meanwhile,
there's been a lot of talk about
the dangers of Internet shop-
ping including online scams
and the potential for Internet
identity theft. Fortunately,
there are steps you can take
to protect yourself.
A recent study, however,
shows that consumers who
take common-sense precau-
tions, monitor their financial
accounts on the Internet and
pay bills online actually may
be safer than those who visit
brick-and-mortar stores and
then pay bills through the mail.
The survey estimates that
9.3 million Americans were
victims of identity theft in
2004, but it found that using
the Internet can reduce the
impact of fraud dramatically.
Identity theft victims who reg-
ularly went online to look at
their financial transactions
often uncovered fraudulent
activity much more quickly
than those who awaited paper
records in the mail.
The study, conducted by
Javelin Strategy & Research
for several financial institu-
tions, estimated that con-
sumers who discovered fraud-
ulent use of their accounts
online sustained an average
theft of $500. Those who only
checked paper records lost an
average of $4,500.
Moreover, experts say crim-
inals often have easier access
to personal information from
statements and receipts in
unopened mail that are tossed


itoring their financial ac-
counts and protecting their
financial information," said
Rob Chesnut, vice president
of Trust and Safety for eBay
and the PayPal online pay-
ment service.
The best deterrent to online
identity theft is to practice safe
surfing. Besides monitoring
your accounts online and
shredding paper records before
discarding them, follow these
suggestions from Chesnut:
Use payment services
that protect your personal
financial information and don't
share your financial data with
merchants.
Use a different password
for each account so that if a
thief discovers one, he cannot
use it to access the others.
Select a combination of
letters and numbers for your
online passwords. Some
thieves use online tools that
automatically try every word
in the dictionary to uncover
passwords.
Don't reply to and never
trust the origins of an e-mail
that solicits personal or finan-


cial information. While it may
appear to come from a reli-
able merchant, its source can
be disguised. Links in the e-
mail that guide you to sites
appearing genuine may actu-
ally be taking you to fraudu-
lent sites where personal
information can be gathered.
To ensure you're really
visiting a legitimate site, enter
its URL manually instead of
clicking on an e-mail link.
Chesnut recommends con-
sumers who suspect fraud
take five steps immediately:
For credit-card charges,
phone the credit card com-
pany to set up a new account.
Most credit cards provide pro-
tection against online fraud
and will remove the charges
in question if notified
promptly.
For bank account fraud,
contact the bank and ask for
their protection procedures.
File a police report and
keep a copy of it.
Contact the Federal
Trade Commission to help
law-enforcement officers track
down the thieves. File ah
FTC complaint online at
www.consumer.gov/idtheft.

Little Known Facts .

by Chaz Allen

Do These Sound Familiar?
We've all heard them and used them. But where did they come
from? Here are a few that we found that we thought you miigt
enjoy!
Ten Gallon Hat refers to a 'big cowboy hat.' Measurements
have nothing to do with it. The name come from Sombrero Galon
which means 'braided hat' in Spanish. '
Called on the Carpet when one is reprimanded by a superior
In the 19th century, carpets were very expensive, as a result -
usually, only the boss's office was carpeted,. Then employees %were
'Called on the carpet,' it meant the boss wanted to see them- which
frequently meant they were in trouble.
One Fell Swoop means 'all at once.' It has nothing to do with
falling. Fell comes from the old English word 'fel' which means
cruel, deadly or ruthless...and is also the root of the word felonh
The expression "one fell swoop; first appeared in. Macbeth, wihii
Shakespeare compares the sudden death of a character to an eagle
swooping down on some chickens and carrying them off.
Sight for Sore.Eyes refers to a 'welcome sight.' According to
ancient superstition, unpleasant sights could make eyes sore...aind
pleasant sights made sore eyes feel better. I -I
Have Your Work Cut Out for You means 'having a difficult
task ahead.' The term refers to a pattern cut from a cloth that muit
be then made into a garment. When the easier task of cutting out
the cloth is finished, the more difficultjob of sewing the garmentis
still left to do. So....
That's a Load of Bull meaning 'a lie or exaggeration.' Tfle
origin is, not in the cow chips. 'Boule' is an Old French veb
* meaning 'to lie." '
My Better Half- referring to a spouse. The Puritan view of
people was that we're made up of two halves; a body and a soil.
The soul our spiritual side was considered our better half. In the
16th century, the English writer Sir Philip Sidney became the first
person to apply the term to the union between married people. By
the 18th century, his use of the expression had become common.'
Red-Letter Day refers to a 'special occasion day.' The old
Christian church of the Middle Ages had feast days, saint days ahd
other holy days, and those special days were printed on a calendar
in red ink. For everything else, black ink was. used.
Clap-Trap refers to empty speech or nonsense. Claptrap
comes from the theater. It describes any line that the playwright
inserts (often knowing it's terrible) just to get applause. It1s
literally a trap to catch clap. ,
If You Can Do It, I'll Eat My Hat! means 'I don't believe you
can do it.' The original word hat in this expression was hatef'
which is actually an Old English dish of eggs, veal, dates and s4lt.
Over time the meaning of the phrase evolved into the ridiculous
proposition it sounds like.

What a surprise we had when we walked into Mrs. Rush's
Bell elem. 1st grade classroom. They presented a check for $704
to 4 Pets Sake to be used in our spay and neuter program. This
combined effort of such a young group of children became a
unified team. Indeed, all things are possible! Speaking for
, myself I was fortunate to have received a great education, but I
wonder just how much more could have been accomplished and
achieved if I had teachers such as Mrs. Rush. Thank you all so
much.
Are you looking for some Wal-Mart and Home Depot
raffle tickets? Well, look no further. Jiffy, BP, and The Hot Spot
in Bell are selling them. Get them while they're still available
because July is the drawing.
Major plans are in the making for our November auction.
There may be some valuable and unusual items up for bid. We
are expecting an awesome auction. If you have something you
would like to donate for the auction or our yard sales don't
hesitate to contact us. Don't forget about the May 28th yard sale.
Be happy just for the love of them. Contact us at 386-935-0975
or 866-727-2972 P.O. Box 1014, Bell 32619 or e-mail

Post 91 News
Last Saturday night, Post 91 Legionnaires, Major Stroupe,
Marilyn Williams, J.M. 'Murph' Everett, Marcia and Joe Parker,
Dean Williams, Wayne Gravely, Carl and Geneva Cornwell, and
Fourth District Vice-Commander, Jim Ramos, who is also the
Legion Post Commander from Post 149 in Newberry, attended the
Military Awards Banquet for the Bell High School Army JROTC.
Post 91 Past Commander Major Stroupe, being retired U.S.
Army, was asked by Post 91 Commander Wayne Gravely, if he
would do the honors of presenting the Military Awards and
Certificates to these Army JROTC Cadets. Major Stroupe
presented the Academic Achievement Award to Mindy Cannon
and the Military Excellence Award went to Jessica Jacobs. Post 91
congratulates these two young ladies on their accomplishments and
we also thank Colonel Dennis McGill, First Sergeant Jon
Meinholz, and the Bell High School JROTC Cadets for allowing
us to join them for the banquet.
Post Elections are Saturday. Post 91 NEEDS YOU! Come out
Saturday morning, eat breakfast, and stay around for the meeting.
Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, will be here before you know
it. The "Post 91 Family" will have a float in the parade. Plan to
come out to ride with us, or walk (or march) in the parade or at
least watch the parade go by, but plan to be in Trenton for the
Memorial Day activities.
Right after the parade there will be a program at the
Courthouse that will dedicate a new monument to our Nation's
veterans.
The LifeSouth bloodmobile is scheduled to be on hand should
you want to "give the gift of life" and donate blood.
Remember our Armed Forces all over this world every day in
our thoughts and prayers, and here at home, keep watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families of those called to
active duty, helping out when and where we can. Remember, the
handicaps and problems are not always visible, "so try a little
kindness".

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, May 5 at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a quiet day after having Jeffrey and seven
boys out on Monday to do a lot of needed work. Also it was a day
to start cooking for the Church Fellowship Dinner on Tuesday and
what a great day that was. How good to see so many friends and
make new ones. Wednesday was a day to relax and some of us
need that, so we decided not to cook for Thursday and go out and
eat. We traveled to ABC Pizza, had a great lunch, then back to the
Museum.
Ann Hardee and her sister Cleo went to Gainesville and
brought back four new tables, also paper goods and things we
need. Sometimes when we have big crowds we need more tables.
We are just thankful we have a building as big as it is and when we
get so many here, we need it.:
We are planning to have a sale here soon to get rid of lots of
fabric, patterns and what have you. We will let it be known later of
the dates.

Dixie JROTC Lean and Mean and Satisfied


With the competitive season winding down,
Dixie Cadets had already excelled at the
regional state-qualifying meet. Four out of the
six teams qualified to compete and two of those
teams brought home State trophies. Having
tasted success, the team was hungry for more.
So immediately after the State Meet they looked
to the last competition of the season at Lake
City to satisfy their hunger pangs. Plans were
made for a lean and mean strike to win it all.
The practices that ensued were focused on one
goal supremacy.
This 6-school meet was to combine a
"Raider" (physical fitness) component with a


Amanda Kelley, Uriah Boyer, William Poston,
Gerardo (Bob) Godoy, and. last minute addition,
Christina Berry. Again, fresh from State this
team of 7 marched precisely as they handled
their 14 lb. Ml rifles. Again the quality
difference was obvious to everyone that
watched.
The cadets first up were the Raider Cadets,
led by Uriah Boyer and Gerardo (Bob) Godoy,
with Jessica Morgan, William Poston, and
Casey Shyer. Having trained both physically
and academically after the state meet this team
was a cohesive machine! They attacked the
events and completed with a team time of 9:45.


Cadets with the Gold, 3 first place trophies and Overall and very big smiles!


drill component. The Raider component
consisted of a team of 4 males and one female
cadet running 1 mile, doing sit-ups, pushups, a
10 meter low crawl, 25 meter high crawl, and
then a 25 meter stretcher carry. This same team
would then take a knowledge test of first aid and
map reading.
The drill events were Color Guard, and
Armed Squad. The Dixie cadets were confident
given that these were the same two events they
had earned trophies in at State.
Up first, was the Color Guard competition.
The Dixie Team, led by Zach Taylor with Bob
Godoy, Casey Shyer, and Uriah Boyer marched
on the field and their confidence was justified as
they dominated the rest of the field with another
flawless performance.
The next event was the Armed Squad
competition. The team from Dixie was again led
by Zach Taylor and consisted of Casey Shyer,


The final event was the academic test of the
Raider Team. It consisted of questions on first
aid and map reading. Led by Uriah Boyer, the
Bears scored a perfect 100!
At the awards ceremony all six schools
gathered to find out who the winners were.
After Dixie County was awarded the First Place
Trophies for Color Guard, Armed Squad and
finally the Raider Team, it was clear to
everyone who would receive the overall
championship trophy...Dixie County! The
strike van filled with inspired Dixie Bears for
the short ride home and preparation for Prom
Night. It was a perfect culmination to a
successful season for the Dixie County High
School JROTC department. This year's cadets
have set a high standard for others to follow in.
They have lived up to their motto "NOT your
average Bear".

Arthur Bellot stated that the radios
in the fire trucks have worn out 2 or 3
trucks.
The Contract between Dixie
County and Rural Health Partnership
of North Central Florida, Inc.
regarding the HRSA grant was
presented by Chad Reed for approval.
Motion by Commissioner
Driggers, seconded by Commissioner
Lamb and carried to approve the
agreement.
FEMA Category C
reimbursements have finally started to
come in. $241,042 was received for
the project worksheets that have been
presented.
: Chad stated that the Presidential
Disaster Application Grant deadline is
April 15th. He recommended getting
Dick Edwards to write it. The Town of
Cross City is willing to sign off as a
joint applicant to fund off of the Local
Mitigation Grant.
Motion by Commissioner
Driggers, seconded by Commissioner
Land and carried to approve the
recommendation but they are to keep
the Board 'informed about the process.
Mr. Driggers stated as it goes along we
would like to keep the citizens abreast
of the situation.
Chad stated that the Board does
have the information and he will
continue to keep them informed.
Commissioner Driggers
commented that he would like to make
sure that the land across from the EMS
Services Building is included.
A National Firm out of
Jacksonville has been contacted
regarding pre-inspections. This will
lower the ISO scores. The Town of
Cross City wants to come together for
discussion about making the City Fire
Department under the County. It
would help lower the counties ISO
ratings. Permission is needed from the
Board to proceed with the pre-
inspections. There are a lot of issues to
discuss.
Commissioner Land stated that he
will support it; if it helps the county.
Commissioner Driggers
volunteered and the Board appointed
Commissioner Driggers to be at the
table with the Town of Cross City for
this discussion.
Chad presented a booklet
compiled by his staff regarding impact
fees from various counties. He
explained the booklet and gave some
information on the different fee ranges
in smaller or larger counties.
Definition-Impact fees are one time
charges on new residential,
commercial, and industrial
development by local government to
raise funds for new or expanded public
facilities that will be necessary to serve
the residents or users of the new
development.
Comment was made that Gilchrist
County has a $1500 impact fee for
Single Family Home and expects to go
higher in the near future.
Chad stated that each category
must have a separate ordinance. He
inquired as to how the Board would
like to proceed.


Commissioner Driggers and
Commissioner Valentine commented
that they would like to leave out the
single family unit and go with the rest.
Chad briefly discussed that you
must follow a guide. You can't
discriminate. If you leave out the
single family unit you are not going to
achieve what you expect with the new
developments.
The Board agreed to begin with
condos at $2500 with the fees spread
over the Road Department, Parks, Fire
Department, EMS, Law Enforcement,
General Government Services, Non-
Utility, and Solid Waste. This will
have to be presented in the form of two
public hearings.
The committee is to meet next
Thursday, March 24th, 2005.
The Public Hearings for the


proposed Ordinance will be April 4th,
2005 at 9:00AM and April 7th, 2005 at
10:00 AM.

COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
CONSULTING
PUBLIC HEARING-DIXIE
COUNTY CDBG AMENDMENT
I-The Dixie County Commission
is requesting that the Florida
Department of Community Affairs
(DCA) authorize the Commission to
amend the County's 2004 CDBG
Housing Revitalization Project budget
to reduce the Temporary Relocation
budget line item from $9,000 to
$2,700 and to reduce the local SHIP
match from $350,000 to $125,000.
These budget amendments will not
affect the beneficiaries as required by
the original CDBG Contract #05DB-
2Q-07-24-01-H08. The budget
revision requested is:
Each Category is listed as follows:
ACTIVITY -CURRENT BUDGET-
LMI%-AMENDED BUDGET-LMI%
Housing Rehabilitation, $628,500,
100%, $634,800, 100%
Temporary Relocation, 9,000,
100%, 2,700, 100%
SHIP Match, 350,000, 100%,
125,000,100%
Administration. 112,500, N/A,
112.500. N/A
TOTAL CDBG BUDGET
$1,100,000, $875,000
LOCATION: County-Wide,
Unincorporated areas
ll-Dixie County requests that DCA
authorize the reduction of the
Temporary Relocation CDBG budget
line item to $2,700. There will be no
reduction in beneficiaries.
III-The Commission also wants to
reduce the $350,000 of pledged local
SHIP match to $125,000 local SHIP
match. The Commission realizes that
this action will reduce its application
score by 45 points, however, the
County's revised application score of
792.07 will remain above the 2004
CDBG funding level.
IV-Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) is a federally
funded program financed by Congress
and administered through the Federal
Department of Housing & Urban
Development with the Small Cities
CDBG Program being administered in
the State of Florida by the DCA.
V-CDBG funded projects must
benefit at least 51% persons with
incomes below the HUD established
low-to-moderate income level.
After a brief discussion, motion by
Commissioner Driggers, seconded by
Commissioner Land and carried to
approve the submittal of the budget
amendment request.
Mr. Edwards presented the Dixie
County Grants Status Report dated
March 17, 2005. He discussed the
SHIP program. The program is not in
compliance with Florida Housing
Finance Corporation requirements for
certifying income and tracking
program funds. It has been requested
that FHFC authorize on-site training of
CPC Staff by the Florida Housing
Coalition. That training is being
arranged. The deadline to bring these
areas of the program into compliance
is July 1, 2005 and with the outside
training th,i should be accomplished
Motion by Commissioner
Driggers, seconded by Commissioner
Land and carried to approve the
training.
Mr. Edwards stated that the 2004
Audit deadline is April 30, 2005 and it
hasn't even begun. Ms. Darlene


Raker, FHFC, stated that it it is not in
their office by April 30th, Dixie County
will lose its SHIP funding for 2005-06.
Attorney Lander inquired if the
auditors have everything they need to
do the audit?
Cindy Dey, Finance Officer,
reported that the storms of 2004 have
caused counties to be delayed, but as
of now, she does have everything she
needs to complete the audit.
Dick Edwards stated that DCA is
being flexible, but FHFC isn't.
Attorney Lander is to discuss this
matter with Martha Garcia-Baker,
Auditor with Davis Monk.
Commissioner Hays commented
that some homes sited for repairs in the
program turned into complete homes
and it has caused the funds to be over.
We need to make sure the contractors
are paid.
Mr. Edwards presented a CDBG
List of Contracts and Amounts that are
already under contract.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to re-establish the LOC
with Capital City Bank until the new
funds are received in July, with the
understanding that no new projects are
to begin until the ones already
underway are complete and paid for.
JOEY LANDER. COUNTY
ATTORNEY
Mr. Lander informed the Board
that he needs Board approval to
proceed regarding the Allen Road
Lawsuit in Jena.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Driggers
and carried to take the advice ,of
County Attorney, Joey Lander.
Commissioner Valentine abstained
from voting.
Attorney Lander informed the
Board that a lawsuit has been filed on
behalf of Eddie Hines for Workers
Compensation regarding an accident
that occurred in 2001.
Joey informed the Board that the
Ordinance laying out "Commissioner
Districts" is confusing since the 911
-addresses have been posted. The
ordinance must be re-written.
The Board approved for this to be
done by the County Attorney.
COMMISSIONER ITEMS
Commissioner Driggers stated that
the DC Board of Commissioners
bought a hog at the Suwannee River
Agriculture Livestock Fair and each
need to pay $105 apiece out of pocket.
Commissioner Valentine stated
that he would like it planned in the
next, budget year to hire another
employee to work at the county yard.
Commissioner Land stated that he
would like for the Board to hire Arthur
Bellot a secretary.
No action was taken due to lack of
budgeted funds at the present time.
Attorney Lander commented that a
road in Jena was closed a long time
ago, and a resolution needs to pass to
close it.
Motion by Commissioner
Valentine, seconded by Commissioner
Driggers and carried for Joey to pen
the resolution and bring back to the
Board for adoption.

Shown in the attached picture is Donna Tooke and Daphine
Harden, two of the Night Owls of Springhouse Quilters. Donna is
displaying an antique quilt she recently completed that was given
to her as a keepsake from family member. Each family member's
name has been embroidered into the quilt top.
Springhouse Quilters will be holding a two-day quilt show in
November 2005. The guild members are busy completing quilts
that will be shown in this show. It takes a quilt show to
keep quilters motivated to complete their projects as quickly as
possible. Complete information will be release to the media closer
to the actual quilt show dates.
Quilters have two major faults. The first, is good for the
quilt shop owners, buying and stashing fabric. Most quilters have
a stash of fabric that is unbelievable. Our excuse for buying so
much fabric, is to keep the cotton farmers growing more cotton.
The second fault is starting projects and moving on to
another one before completing the previous projects. Quilters
always have a quilt either in the making or ready for showing.
Quilters make a lot of quilts that are donated either to family,
friends or given away for community use. For this year's
community project, Springhouse quilters will be making tote bags
for the nursing home patients. These will tie onto the wheel chair
or walker to assist the patients is carrying their personal items.
Some of the Springhouse quilters are currently making plans
and developing a program for the 4-H summer camp. There will be
two session of 4-Hr's during June and July to meet at the
Springhouse building for a week and participate in a quilting
camp. For information on this project, interested 4-H members
should contact Ms. Elaine Faison, at the Gilchrist County
Agricultural Extension Office.
For more information on Springhouse Quilters contact Kay
Fales, 490 7909 or Lois Scott, 463 2207.
Happy quilting to all of you. Lois Scott, publicity

Today's Topic:
DEALING WITH DEBT
COLLECTION
PART 2
Once you have decided which debts you are able to pay and
which will have to wait, the next step is to deal with the
collectors that aren't being paid first (those pesky people calling
you all the time about the debts you owe on credit cards, etc;).
Here are some helpful legal aid tips!
How should you deal with debt collectors?
Don't let them pressure you into making wrong choices
about what to pay first. For example, explain to the debt
collector, "I have to pay my rent and utility bills first. I have
been recently laid-off; when I get a new job I will do my best to
meet my debt."
What can a debt collector really do?
A debt collector collecting a debt of the creditor can do little
more than demand payment. If the creditor has not taken your
house, car, or other property as collateral on a loan, then legally
the creditor can do three things:
1. Stopdoing business with you.
2. Report your default to a credit bureau (which will be
unavoidable when you cannot pay most of your debts on time).
3. Sue you in court. Although the threat to sue you may be
very upsetting, it is not nearly as serious as you might think.
Many creditors do not follow through on their threats. If they do
sue you, you can represent yourself, and explain why you cannot
or should not pay. After a period of time, the creditor may
obtain a court judgment, but this judgment does NOT force you
to pay the debt. It only gives the creditor the right to try to seize
part of your wages or particular property. Under certain
circumstances, creditors cannot seize ,your property or wages, to
satisfy the court judgment against you. For example, if your
only source of income is social security or another government
benefit, a creditor isgenerally disallowed from taking from that
income to satisfy a judgment. Only if you are hiding assets can
a creditor seize wages or property before a judgment. A creditor
cannot send a consumer to jail or send the consumer's children
to foster care.
If you want to know more about how to stop being harassed
by creditors clamoring for payment of debt, be sure to check out
Part 3 of this Legal Aid series!

"GOOD LUCK NICK!!!"
This week's Dixie County Sightings was held at the Bruce Boyette Stadium at the Dixie County
High School as the entire student body and staff gathered at the football field to honor Nick Collins
and his new NFLjob with the Green Bay Packers.
Collins will be leaving the sunny warm climate of Dixie in the next few weeks, but promises to
make frequent visits to his hometown.
As the students cheered on their newest success story, Collins responded with that great smile of
his. Collins has been overwhelmed by his new "star" status and expressed his appreciation to
everyone.
GO BEARS...GO PACKERS!

By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
On May 3rd, 2005 students of the Dixie Adult Education Center
gathered to celebrate their success in passing the GED. For many
this was a life-long dream come true and family and friends were
there to watch them as they received their diplomas.
The evening began with the processional of graduates and
invocation by Rev. Howie Grimmenga. Kathy Haas, Dixie Adult
Education Instructor welcomed everyone and. introduced the
special guest speakers for the evening, Superintendent Dennis
Bennett and DCHS Assistant Principal Dolphus Peppers. Both
men expressed their heartfelt congratulations to all the graduates
and emphasized that with their success in passing the GED, many
doors will now be open to them that otherwise would not have
been. They encouraged the graduates to continue to challenge
themselves and set new goals.
Mr. Bennett presented the graduates their diplomas while Mr.
James Bray, Administrator Dixie Adult Education Center,
preformed the investiture (turning of the tassels).
The 2004-2005 graduates were: Jennifer Amman, Seth Beatty,
Tara Berndt, April Cobb, Kim Futch, Alec Harrod, Felicia Harrod,
;Jeff Haynes, John Lubin, Vanessa Miller, Susan Mulvey, Wendy
Myers, Joyce Sandstedt, Eugene Suggs, and Silas Troy.
A beautiful reception followed in the DCHS Cafeteria.
Congratulations to you all!

Mickey Mantle set the record for strikeouts in his first
year in major league baseball. The Yankee slugger struck
out 111 times in 96 games.
