Three Arrested On

Drug Charges
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Sheriffs Office recently made three drug
arrests, one of which stemmed from a routine traffic stop and two
others during a "sting" operation.
The first arrest occurred on May 31st when a deputy stopped
Laura L. Roden, of Trenton, FL when she ran a stop sign. at the
intersection of Patrick Street and 55-A.
i While issuing Roden a citation for the traffic violation the
officer noted a faint odor of ether, a chemical usually associated
with the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
Florida Highway Patrol K-9 unit arrived at the scene and gave
a positix e alert at the passengers door where Allen J. Brannin, 44,
of Cross Cirt. Fl. had been sitting. A search of the vehicle lead to
officers finding methamphetamine in the car. Further search of the
car lead to the discovery of marijuana in the ashtray of the driver's
side backseat.
Roden was issued a notice to appear in court for possession of
-20 grams of manrluana and her vehicle was released back to her..

Commission

Highlights
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
From first glance the June
2nd County Commission
meeting looked to be a eventful
meeting as residents filled the
Commission Room in
anticipation of discussing a
proposed re-zoning for a go-cart
track.


Above is an artist rendition of the proposed gasification plant.
By Terri Laigi-'d i- Staff Writer
At the last Board of County Commission Meeting, Commissioners voted unanimously for the re-zoning of a 19-acre parcel of land
located off the Rollison Road, next to the County's Transfer Station. The property was bought by a newly formed company, Dixiei
Waste Services, \ ho \ ill be using gasification/thermal oxidation technology, developed by International Environmental Technologies,
Inc. (IET) out of Danville, Kentucky
IET, acting as a technical representative for Dixie Waste Services first approached the Board several months ago, asking for the re- ,
zoning of property in the Old Town area, off US 19., However, upon further investigation, IET found that the property was prone to
flooding and withdrew their request. The Commission and local realtors worked to find another, more suitable site, a taskwhich they :
completed winless than a week.
Once again, the re-zoning a.'s ad'. eriised and then brought before the Board. Several residents wxho lihe b\ the proposed site were
on hand at the meeting, asking questions. Representatives from IET were .on hand to answer any and all questions. Commissioners.
already satisfied with the research they had reviewed on the operation of the proposed plant, had only one issue to discuss and that was;
working out the details on how the county could benefit from the plant being located in Dixie. Dixie Waste Services assured the
Commissioners that they would be pleased with their "tipping" fee proposal, which will be worked out once the plant receives permitting
from the DEP and Suwannee River Water Management District.
Dixie's Solid Waste Coordinator, Joe Ruth, has also, been working with the company, learning more about the gasification process
itself and how it will benefit our community. "I can't tell you how excited I am about Dixie Waste Services coming to our county,"
stated Ruth. "This is a top-notch company and we are lucky to have them," he added.
The technology of gasification and thermal oxidation has been around for over fifty years. Aircraft carriers have used it for years a.:
a way to dispose of waste safely at sea. The process is simple, reverting any manmade or organic waste product back to its natural state,
inert ash or breathable air. Any emissions are captured and used as a non-fossil fuel source for on-siteprocesses. .....
There is no smoke or harmful emissions, it is quiet, and there is no odor. Sound too good to be true? According to recent phonehj
interviews with several state Department of Regulation departments in both Wyoming and Alaska, the gasification/therimial oxidationr
process has been found to be the most environmentally safe solution to landfills.
Landfills require mass amounts of land and once filled to capacity, require the shutting down of the property and years of monitoring:
at an enormous cost to the taxpayer. Landfills are not only dangerous to humans, but to wildlife as well. The gasification/thermal'
oxidation system eliminates all these problems. It was noted that while DWS purchased 19-acres of land only 10-acres will be needed
See "GASIFICATION PLANT", continued page 5

0ff Sheriff's Department Receives Gun Locks


The application for re-zoning was made by Bob Carnes of Old
Town. It was his understanding that he would need to re-zone his
property if he were to construct a clay-dirt go-kart track. However,
after further investigation, he found, that the law states that he
- would only need to do so, if he were to charge money for the use
of the track. Since he does not currently charge or has any plans to
charge, he withdrew his application.
Several neighbors who adjoin Carnes property had a list of
complaints that included noise and heavy traffic. Carnes noted that
he has asked his friends who frequent the track to work with him in
keeping the peace with his neighbors. Carnes noted that they
would be limiting their activities until dark and only on the
weekends.
..Several supporters of the family oriented sport, stated they
were thankful for Carnes and his generous offer of the use of his
track.
With the re-zoning application withdrawn, the Commissioners
were unable to help the complainants and referred them to local
law enforcement.
Other 'business included several developers bringing their
preliminary plans for the construction of condos in Suwannee. The
first, Royal Coast Condominiums, if permitted, will be located at
the end of Canal Street. The three-story complex will provide 39
units.
Suwannee Sunset is another proposed condominium structure
that will have 35 units, boat ramp and boat docking stations. It will
be located at the old Jon's Marina property.
Both of these developers noted that they were working along
with the Suwannee Water & Sewage Board on distribution issues
that the plant.is currently faced with.
Donny Ellington, Engineer for the Royal Coast Condominiums
stated that it is unusual for developers to get together and pull their
resources as they have in Suwannee. "It is truly a cooperative
effort that will benefit both the developers and residents of
Suwannee," he stated.
More to come on Dixie's growth in upcoming issue of the
Advocate.

Dave Correll with Project ChildSafe recently stopped in Dixie County and gave the Dixie County"
Sheriff s Department approximately 1200 gun locks to be distributed throughout the county. Project
ChildSafe, is the nation's largest and most comprehensive firearm safety education program and is.i
partnering with Doug Koenig, world champion action pistol shooter, to help raise awareness about.
firearms safety among gun owners nation-wide.
Project ChildSafe, an expansion of Project HomeSafe, is distributing 20 million more free'
firearm safety kits as a party of a nationwide initiative to raise awareness about safe and responsible
firearm ownership and storage. Designed to make homes with firearms safer, Project ChildSafe is
funded by a $50 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice and managed by the National,
Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).
"Project ChildSafe has become the most comprehensive firearm safety education program ih.
America," said Doug Painter, president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation,. "The
combination of free gun locking devices, an in-depth safety education component and distribution
efforts in all 50 states will significantly enhance public awareness of the importance of proper gun.
storage in the home."
It is a component of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a gun-violence prevention initiative of the Bush
Administration. Last year, Project HomeSafe distributed 2.4 million such firearms safety kits at local
events in 43 states.

Oeep Throat comes out of the closet
In 1972, American movie-goers were treated(?) to a film
v;hich was, to say the least, explicit. It was entitled, "Deep
liroat," an expression that became popular in the political realm
f a season, and which has recently been back in the news.'
While Atmerica may have tbrgonen the 33 year old porn epic,
t$e political application seems to have resurfaced. "Deep Throat"
was the code name of the informer who gave Bob Woodward and
darl Bernstein the inside info concerning the Watergate break in
t+at was published in the Washington Post and resulted in Richard
.Nixon becoming the first president to resign the office.
Woodward and Bernstein steadfastly refused to reveal their
kurce, saying that the truth could not be disclosed until the
informant died. Apparently, the informant couldn't wait, because
lst' week W. Mark Felt let it be known that he was the one who
tipped the story to Mr. Woodward. Perhaps, at age 91, Mr. Felt
Jras worried that he might out-live Woodward and Bernstein.,In
any event, he blew the whistle to Vanity Fair, and now
everybody'ss saying they knew it all along.
Only problem is, "everybody" didn't. And those few who did
lept a lid on it. But in the end, Mark Felt's family, who knew the
uth but kept it under wraps, convinced their patriarch to spill the
0eans and make a few bucks. After all, he made Woodward and
bernstein rich and famous, yet got nothing for his efforts, except
perhaps the satisfaction of having deep-sixed Richard Nixon at the
apex of his political career.
You see, Mark Felt was the number two man in the FBI,
Second only to J. Edgar Hoover, at the time of Hoover's death in
May of 1972. Felt apparently hoped to succeed Hoover, but Nixon
instead appointed Louis Patrick Gray III, who had served in the
Justice Dept. but not the FBI, and who was later implicated in the
Watergate scandal.
,. Reactions to Mark Felt's disclosure have varied all over the
place. The chronic Nixon-haters, of course, praised Felt as a hero,
vhile commentators at the other extreme insisted that, not only
should Felt be indicted for spilling FBI info to the media, his
family should be indicted as well for not having turned him in.
Does this sound a little like George Orwell's 1984? We're not
talking about the druggies who hid John Couey, the dirt-bag who
killed 9 year old Jessica Lunsford, we're talking about the family
.f an old man who declined to turn Grandpa in for not following
Department protocol when he was in the FBI 30 some-odd years
earlier ,
Watergate has accumulated such a life of its own that just
bout every high-level scandal that materializes gets the "gate"
Suffix attached to it. The Clinton administration alone had
several, including "Travelgate," which involved the inappropriate
dismissa] of White House travel office personnel, and,
!'Zippergate," which ought to be self-explanatory to anyone
familiar with how "Deep Throat" was replaced by "Lewinski" in
the parlance of politics.
Personally, I never thought Watergate should have been such a
ig deal. The story was out months before the 1972 election, and
Nixon still won by a landslide. It took two more years of incessant
harping by the media to bring on the threat of impeachment that
convinced Nixon to hang it up.
Not to suggest that the liberal media have their favorites, or
that they didn't like Nixon, but does, anyone really think
,Watergate would have been such a big deal if Ted Kennedy had
beenin charge?

Letter To The Editor.
To all the scum in Dixie County who dump their dogs on Log
Landing Road...
About every week some heartless fool brings their unwanted
dogs and dump them, to starve to death. It would be more humane
to put a quick bullet in their heads. How would you like to be
turned out in a strange place to run up and down in the road
looking for a kind face and food when you can't take care of
yourself? What are these dogs suppose to eat to stay alive? From
what I hear, this is a problem all over the county. May God have
mercy on these poor innocent creatures.
Someone dumped a pregnant female dog and a friend took her
in and she had 8 pups. Shame on you people who do this to God's
creatures. Have animal control take them, at least they feed them
until they are humanely put to sleep. That would save me from
having to do it. This probably won't do any good, because these
idiots probably can't read.
M. Lou Shirley
Letter to the Editor
To Our County Commissioners:
I have noticed a lot of roadwork going on in the local areas
around us but I can tell you Dixie County is not one of them.
Dixie County is pitiful in making our roads better. Hwy 349
could use a repaving and definitely Spillers Hwy. That road is
falling apart and it even has helped contribute to a recent car
accident. There are big dips and cracks and the road way is
breaking away on it, that can throw you into another car if not
careful, and it really needs to be made wider. There is alot of
traffic that travels on that little road, what is it going to take to get
them to realize it needs some badly needed work, what, the cost of
a life?
Most of the lime rock roads are in terrible shape also; they do
not stay up on the grading of them. The dumpsite areas, oh my,
goodness, they are terrible to have to drive on to dump our trash
and we pay for this service on our taxes.
I think it's time our County gets on the ball and put our tax
money where it is needed the most, start doing some roadwork.

One Year Forestry

Program At LCCC
By Kurt Havird, instructor, forestry operations program at
LCCC
Lake City Community College (LCCC) has developed a one-
year Forestry program, Forest Operations, to allow students
quicker job placement in the Forest industry. This new "career in
one year" will allow students an entry level professional diploma
in less than one year of college and the option to pursue an
associate in science (A.S.) degree if desired. The new Forest
Operations curriculum will begin in the fall semester (August
2005). The classes will be held Monday through Thursday in the
fall and spring semester, and three weeks of summer A term
u' (Monday through Thursday). The new Forest Operations program
. is only available at Lake City Community College.
0 All courses in the new one-year Forest Operations curriculum
will be subject specific. No general education classes will be
required unless the student tests into preparatory general education
classes. Enrolled students will be trained for numerous forestry
careers with public, private, and government agencies involved
v'with managing the nation's natural resources. As part of the Forest
Operations program students will cover career disciplines such as
'fire science, timber cruising, silviculture, timber harvesting, forest
insects, forest diseases, tree identification, aerial photography,
reforestation, land measurements, and timber procurement. Each
class will be explored with hands-on laboratories in each of the
disciplines.
Those students interested in applying to the Forest Operations
program will be required to have completed a regular high school
*diploma or have a general education diploma (GED), be 16 years
'of age or older, and complete the SAT, ACT, or CPT test.
For those students who desire an associate in science degree,
-:non-forestry academic courses would be completed in the optional
'second-year sequence. LCCC plans to develop a 60 credit hour
associate in science degree in Agribusiness Technology which will
,begin in August 2006 and have the 27 credit hours from the new
SForest Operations certificate transfer to the associate in science in
Agribusiness Technology degree.
Lake City Community College has continued to develop
innovative programs for the forest industry since the Forestry
school's inception in 1947.- LCCC, the Forestry faculty, and the
,forest industry advisory board anticipates that this "career in one
year" forestry curriculum will be "tree-rific" and continue to
Grow" with the industry's changing demands.
LCCC celebrates 58 years of continuing education excellence
in 2005. The college had its beginnings in 1947 as the Columbia
S-Forestry School (CFS) on the present LCCC campus. It served the
6r.needs of returning World War II veterans and the increasing skilled
rb,, employee demands of area forest industries. The .CFS utilized
structures that remained from a World War II era air base. In 1962,
when the State of Florida created Lake City Junior College and
Forest Ranger School on the campus of the Columbia Forestry
School, the college became one of twenty-eight two-year
institutions envisioned in the state of Florida's master community
college plan. In 1970, 'the inclusion of "Community" in the
college's title emphasized the broad spectrum of transfer and
occupational programs offered at Lake City Community College.
The Forest Operations Program strives to produce 'a motivated',
knowledgeable, skilled forest technician who meets the
employment needs of the forest industry. Current job demand is,
very strong for graduates who cruise timber, supervise harvesting
and reforestation crews for contractor compliance, utilize
'prescribed fire, and work in many other disciplines within the
profession.
SThe program is'structured to meet the needs of the students in
the college's five-county district (Columbia, Dixie, Union,
Gilchrist, and Baker counties), arid to meet the educational and
training needs of the forest industry within these areas. Although
SForest Operations students come from outside the five-county
District and often are employed in other counties, the objectives of
the school and program are consistent with the needs of the forest
industry, especially in the Southeastern United States where the
majority of the graduates are employed.
So if it's quicker job placement in the forest industry that is of
: main interest to you or the ability to further your training and
secure an associate in science degree in this field, then Lake City
t Community College Forest Operations program is just what you're
looking for. The choice is up to you. LCCC is constantly striving
.. to produce programs that meet the student's needs.

Volunteers Help Living History Program
--Students help rebuild traditional Seminole dwelling-
Until the most recent times, raising or building a home or barn has always been a community
effort in most areas of
r .'3' 'L .14 America. Recently when the
'' ., 'n~' ~staff at Manatee Springs
C State Park decided to renew
S. C the thatched roof of the
moin te o h park's traditional Seminole

S capitalize on that spirit of
.,nmoing, theyr ,de ided,
.. teamwork.
The building (called a
n chicken in the Seminole
Slanguage) is used in the
.n park's living history
So program and is built using
c traditional materials and
techniques. If built
e.... p. ..r a correctly, the roof which is
made from fronds of the
Cabbage Palm, will last
about eight years before needing to be re-thatched. Collecting fronds from the Cabbage Palms and
moving them to the building site, is a labor intensive effort as nearly 1100 fronds are needed to
complete the project.
In March a group of science students from Sunrise Middle School in Ft. Lauderdale camped in the
park's group camping area. They were called upon to assist park staff in removing all the old fronds
that were no longer keeping water from the inside of the chicken. The students, their chaperones and
teachers removed over a thousand fronds and the nails holding each frond in place.
When they were finished what remained was the skeleton of the structure all cleaned up and ready
for the next phase of construction. A large, energetic group would be needed for the very labor
intensive cutting and collecting of over one thousand palm fronds.
When Boy Scout Troop 25 of Jacksonville asked if there was a community service project in
which they could participate, park staff knew what project was uppermost in everyone's mind.
Assisted by park volunteers and employees, the scouts made quick work of the tedious job of
hauling the freshly cut, green fronds back to the chickee site.
While much of the work of building a chickee is tedious and repetitious, the actual thatching is an
endear or taking much skill in the old ways. Assistant Park Manager, Bill Roberson, was once again
called upon to put his living history skills to work.
After nearly a week of thatching, Roberson commented that "The thatching should last a good six
to eight years and I plan on retiring in five:"
o The park's volunteerr program coordinator, John Lohde, pointed out that much of the work in
Florida's State Parks is accomplished with the aid of volunteers. If you would like to make a difference
at Manatee Springs or Fanning Springs as a volunteer call John at 352-493-6823.

for the plant, the additional land will be used as a butter.
Simply put, waste is brought to the plant and directly dumped into sealed vaults. There is
no pre-sorting. This eliminates odor, animal scavenging, and even allows the disposal of
tires and medical waste. Once sealed the waste is digested for 8-12 hours. When completed
the waste will be reduced down to an ash that can be sold to cement companies.
Traffic to the plant will be approximately 12-15 trucks per day. Dixie Waste Services
stated that they would help secure a grant for funding to build a new access road to be built
between Rollison Road and the transfer station. It was noted at the meeting that funding for
such projects is available at the state level now.
"You will find that we are good cooperate citizens," stated Larry Crow, IET
Representative. "We will be spending a great deal of money here in your community and
providing jobs for 30-50 people." The plant will cost around 20 million to build and then put
into operation.
"It is a win-win proposition," stated Ruth. "The environment wins and the county wins,
with the savings this plant will provide," added Ruth.
Once permitting from the DEP and SRWMD is secured, it will take approximately 10-12
months for construction of the plant.

Ross & Mitchell Wedding


Bobbi Ross & Todd Mitchell
Bobby & Debbie Ross and Mitch & Carolyn Mitchell are proud
to announce the approaching wedding of their children
Bobbi Denise Ross
and
Todd Christopher Mitchell
They have chosen the first day of their new life together to be
on June 18, 2005 at the First Baptist Church of Steinhatchee at 5
o'clock in the evening.
Reception will follow at the Steinhatchee Community Center.
Some out of town invitations are being sent, but all family and
friends are welcome.
The First Baptist Church of Steinhatchee
615 Riverside Drive

Behold the Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"The Headship ministry"
I the day of the Lord say please stay up with me this "THOUGHT" it
will take several weeks. In Deuteronomy (Chapter 34) we find the life of
Moses coming to an end. In verse one we see him climbing the mountain
of Nebo to reach the top of Mount Pisgah, It was from this high majestic
mountain that he was able to see over into the promised land, He was able
to-behold the rich, lush green pastures and view the tall palm trees and see
all the vastness of the land. Moses was one hundred and twenty years old
when he died and his eyes were not dim nor his natural force abated. I the
Day of the Lord, say He realized that he was born for a purpose to fulfill
the plan and purpose of God. He brought Israel out of Egypt and led them
through the Red Sea into the wilderness for forty years. If you will bear
with me, I would like to give you some of the highlights of Moses life and
then bring in the news leadership message, which deals with the high
calling of sons. Moses was God's man for that day and time; God raised
him up to lead the people who had been in bondage for four hundred
years. Near the end of those years much pressure was put upon them. A
new pharaoh came into power and dealt harshly with the
Israelite.Taskmasters were appointed over them and because of the cruel
treatment they received they began crying out to God to send them a
deliverer. I the Day of the Lord, say A strange thing happened, too while
pressure and hardship v.as put on them. The more pressure that was put on
the lsraelites the more the, became Iruitiul increased abundantly and
multiphied I believe there s a me-age tfor Lis here. The more we go
through trails, persecutions and hardship the more we will grow and
multiply in the Kingdom of God. I, the Day of the Lord, say" Now no
chastening for the.present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless
afterward it yielded the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which
are exercised thereby" (Heb 12:11). Please stay up with me, continued
next week.


Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin quilters met June 2nd at the Levy Co. Museum,.
How good it was to have Goldie and Cleo back from N.C. Goldie
picked a red, white and blue "Chum Dash" for our next quilt.
Marie is back from the east coast and Martha is still gone
somewhere on her bus trip.
We will be at the Watermelon Festival to take donations on the
quilt to be given away. When we think back to the years we were
raising money to build the museum, and all we got into. We had
floats in the parade; we baked tons of cookies, made chicken and
dumplings. We' even sold them for breakfast. Sold canned goods
and crafts. It was always a fun day and we thank the Lord we have
come so far. Now we can watch the parade and see the crafts, meet
people we only see once a year.
I want to thank Richard and Sammie Hart for all the vegetables
they bring me. I'm making lots of pickles and what have you.
Lunch was so good with, meat loaf, mixed vegetables and
chicken, fried, in sauces, we had chicken in every thing. Marie
made lemon puffs, blueberry pie,and ice cream.

Abundant Life & Living
The real measure of your wealth is how much you would be
wprth if you lost it. Greed, desiring material wealth has caused
irmny mighty and powerful people to lose sight on God, family
friends and self worth.
X. ': When financial gain is the
4. Controlling factor in our lives there
is never enough money. Think of
'i.., how many people are
':e overextended because of greed.
e A Having a lot of money or
material wealth does not always
make a better life. Having millions
of dollars means very little to us if
we do not have the understanding
of how to use it wisely for the
benefit of ourselves and others.
Lucille Stockton Proverbs 4:7 (kjv) states Wisdom
is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy
getting get understanding.
Every adult should be taught how to use financial ideas,
rather than money, that it will serve them rather than have
dominion over them. As said, Greed is a deadly sin" but only if
you let it control you.
I am sure we all know someone who is very wealthy, very
sick and unhappy, we also know some one with meager fare who
is very happy, loving, giving and sharing what they have. Which
would you want to be?

Prayer
Holy Sprit,
You who solve all
problems, who light all roads
so that I can obtain my goals."
You who give me the Divine
gift to forgive and to forget all
evil against me and that in all
instances of my life, You are
with me. I want in this short
prayer to thank You for all
things and to confirm that I
never want to be separated
from you, even and in spite of
all materials illusions. I wish to
be with You in eternal glory.
Thank you for your mercy
toward me and mine.
The person must say this
prayer for three consecutive
days. After three days the favor
requested will be granted even
though it may appear difficult.
This prayer must be published
immediately after the favor is
granted without mentioning the
favor, only your initials should
appear at the bottom.



The Word

Made Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"
Continued from last week, I
the, son of man, say the reason
why this New Church is the crown
of all churches which have been to
this time on the terrestrial globe is,
because it will worship one visible
God in whom is the invisible God,
as the soul is in the body, for thus
and no otherwise can conjunction
be effected between God and man;
the reason of which is, because
man* is natural and consequently
thinks naturally, and the
conjunction must be effect in his
thought, and such in the affection
of his love, and so conjunction is
produced when a man thinks of
God as a mian-I the son of man,
say Conjunction with an invisible
God is like the conjunction of
ocular sight with the expanse of
the! universe, of which it sees no
end;' it is also like sight in the
midst of the ocean, which falls on
airiand water and it last in their
imnriensity; but conjunction with a
visible God is like the visible
appearance of a man in the air or
an the sea, stretching forth his
hands and inviting to his
embraces; for all conjunction of
Go9d with man must be like wise
reciprocal on the part of man with
God; and this reciprocality on
mard's part is not possible with a
visible God. I the son of man say
that;God was not visible before he
assumed the Humanity, the Lord
himself teaches in John: "Ye have
neither heard the voice of the
Fathier nor seen his shape "(5:37).
And in Moses: No man can see
me;and live "(Exod. 33:20) but
that he is seen by his humanity, is
declared in John: "No man hath
seen God at any time; the only-
begotten Son, who is in the bosom
oflhe Father, he hath declared him
"(l:;18).And again: "Jesus saith, I
ani 'the Way, the Truth, and the
life; no man cometh unto the
Father but by me: if ye had known
me,. ye would have known my
Father also: he that hath seen me, .
haih see the Father" ( 14:6,7,9).
Love you continued next week

FWC Makes It Easy to Speak Up

with Online Virtual Workshop
-This is a brand new way to host an FWC workshop.
Register to participate in the live, online workshop for
Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative on June 9 at. 7 p.m.
Eastern Time-
The people of Florida have an unprecedented opportunity to
shape the future of our state's fish and wildlife conservation
programs by helping create Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative.
Now, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering an unprecedented forum for public
participation.
June 9, at 7 p.m. EDT, the FWC will host a live online
Virtual workshop where FWC staff will present an overview of
Plorida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative and ask for feedback. This is
fhe first time the FWC has conducted a public workshop through
fhe Internet.
Instead of having to travel to a traditional public meeting,
workshop attendees will be able to "attend" from the comfort of
home, office or any place with computer and Internet
connection. Participants will see and hear a presentation and
interact with FWC staff through chat, questions and answers and
instant polling. They will also be able to comment and make
.suggestions. The presentation will run approximately 30
'minutes.
"The meeting will be conducted like a public workshop,
except that people can participate from virtually anywhere," said
Thomas Eason, who is leading Florida's Wildlife Legacy
Initiative for the FWC. Eason will conduct, or emcee, the live
workshop.
Everyone interested in "attending" the workshop, must pre-
Iregister online before June 9. To get signed up, go to
:MyFWC.com/wildlifelegacy and follow the instructions to
:register. Registrants will receive e-mail reminders.
Complete information about our Legacy Initiative and
Congress' requirements for the Comprehensive Wildlife
-Conservation Strategy is also on the Web site.
For the convenience of people who do not have a computer
with Internet access, the FWC is making the presentation
available at six locations around the state. Concerned citizens
can view the computerized workshop and meet with FWC
biologists in Lakeland, Lake City, Ocala, Panama City,
Tallahassee and West Palm Beach. (Addresses for the viewing
locations: http://mvfwc.com/wildlifelegacviPDF/Directions.pdf)
Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative is a far-sighted approach
to link action plans to a distinct funding program. Its aim is to
avert future declines of native wildlife, with a goal of keeping
common species common. Public participation is a crucial
element in developing this plan.
"The success of Florida's Wildlife Legacy depends on
partnerships throughout from creating, to securing funding, to
implementing the conservation strategy. I hope everyone who
cares about the future of Florida's fish and wildlife will get
%involved and help create a blueprint for managing our resources,"
'Eason said.
*f Congress has challenged each U. S. state and territory to
'develop a comprehensive wildlife conservation strategy and to
Work together to create a nationwide approach to wildlife
conservation. Florida's Comprehensive Wildlife Strategy is one
of 56 being developed by every U. S. state and territory. As a
strong incentive to get states to develop a plan, Congress made
it a requirement for participating in the federal State Wildlife
Grants program. Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative could lead
to millions of dollars of federal funding for our state's wildlife
hnd habitats.
The FWC is leading the process to create Florida's Wildlife
Legacy Initiative. But this is not a plan for the FWC. It is a
plan for the future of our state's native wildlife.
"I encourage Floridians to get in ol'ed and have their say,"
Eason said. "This is a chance for everyone who is interested in
the future of Florida's wildlife to participate and help craft the
lan.
A recorded copy of the virtual workshop will be available at
'MyFWC.com/wildlifelegacy after the live workshop ends.
People can provide comments by clicking on the comment link
ton that site, or by writing to Thomas Eason at the FWC at 620
S. Meridian St., Tallahassee, FL 32399-1600. The deadline for
.submitting comments is June 18.
* In addition to the live online workshop, the FWC is hosting
a special workshop with scientific experts on June 17 at 8 a.m.
On June 18, the public and FWC stakeholders are invited to an
open house throughout the day to meet with FWC staff and
comment on the strategy. Both meetings will be held at
Holiday Inn Express, at 8310 Galbraith Rd. (1-75 Exit 270) in
Tampa.

Wildflower Identification Meeting
An ordered garden with carefully cultivated flowers can be
quite beautiful, but it lacks the element of surprise. Wildflowers,
on the other hand, just pop up all over the place and constantly
surprise us, and the Suwannee River basin is home to hundreds ;opf
varieties.

Park will be the Speaker at the next Save Our Suwannee meeting
with slides and commentary about our local wildflowers. Bring

Buddy Martin's
Weekly Sports Commentary

Shhh! Don't say who's No. 1
Right off, most of us figure when
somebody's keeping a secret, it can't be all
good.
That's why I've always considered college
coaches a nefarious bunch when it comes to
voting in polls.
Frankly, I've never understood the logic of
having coaches decide polls, anyway, because
.it smacks of letting the fox guard the hen house
ialid then letting him also decide it he'd rather
have rabbits inside
instead, too.
The college
coaches say they're
going to tell us how
they. voted in the
final ballot, but I say
they ought to make
all of them public
because they tend to
manipulate polls.
Flawed as they
may be, I'd rather have computer and journalist
rankings because most of them at least offer a
modicum of objectivity.
Take the latest pre-season poll by Athlon
Magazine, featuring USC as No. 1. Tennessee
is ranked second, Iowa third, Oklahoma fourth
and Florida State fifth. Surprisingly, Texas is
.all the way down to sixth, even though the
Longhorns are considered a national
-championship contender and may finally beat
Oklahoma this year.
Comparing this to the five members of the
ESPN.com who offer up their Top Ten, there
are some wide variances.
-Although ESPN's polls have the Gators as
!high as fourth and all five panelists put them in
'ihe Top Ten, I think Athlon probably has
Florida ranked about right at No. 13.
.Miami, at No. 11 in the Athlon rating, has
:been rated as high as eighth by the ESPN crew.
FSU fared much better in Athlon than in
ESPN, where the'- Seminoles are only
mentioned by two panelists.
They mean nothing, but the rankings are fun
to break up early summer doldrums for the
football-hungry crowd.
Want to know how lightly coaches take their
: job as pollsters? Every year, Stele Spurrier
votes for Duke as No. 25 out of loyalty to his
old ACC Championship team.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. Gee, until Rasheed Wallace set us
straight about those league-imposed seventh
games, I thought it was all about great
competition.
2. Certainly Kellen Winslow has a right to
protect his son from the media after .his
crackup on a motorcycle, but if he's going to
the be front man for the Browns' injured tight
end, he's got to learn not to stay cool and not
,pop his cork.
., 3. Yes, Jack Nicklaus has lingered with his
goodbye, playing his last competitive
tournament on American soil at his Memorial
and missing the cut Friday, but Nicklaus has
earned as many mulligans as he wants to tdke.

4. Sounds like Steve Spurrier plans to stay
around South Carolina for a while, given that
he's talking about trying to break the record of
65 wins by a Gamecock coach.
5. I can't help but like Shaquille O'Neal
better after learning that he called the family of
George Mikan, 80, who passed away last week
and offered to pay for his funeral expenses.
This Just In:
Mikan had panache
Not many people are fortunate enough to say
they saw George Mikan play for the
Minneapolis Lakers, including me, but his
contributions to the game went beyond his
skills as a player. It was Mikan, as the first
commissioner of the ABA, who introduced the
three-point shot and heartily endorsed the old
red, white and blue ball.
This Just In 2: Hurricane wreckage
It shouldn't really be surprising that ex-
Miami Hurricane Sean Williams is in trouble "-
with the law again, wanted by cops as "a
person of interest" in charge yet to named. Just
look back at his recent history when he was a)
charged for drunken driving in October; b)fired
two agents in a quest to re-do his seven-year,
$18 million contact with Washington after one 1
season; c)was accused of spitting on a player in
a game at Cincinnati. Nice pattern, huh? L
Short Stuff
Count Florida teammate and pitcher Darren a
O'Day among those who has become a fan of
the SEC Player of the Year,sophomore first I
baseman Matt LaPorta from Charlotte High, of
whom he said: "Last year he (LaPorta) was a (
good hitter, but he was a feast-or-famine guy,
either he had a home run or a strikeout. Now, if
you get guys on base for him he's going to
make something happen" ... After such a
terrible showing in the finals of the French
Open, one wonders how Mary Pierce of
Sarasota ever beat the No. 1 player in the world
to get there.

3. Way Too Smart To Be Honest.
Clipboard
Say it nice once more
Urban Meyer is on the record a number of
times about his admiration for Steve Spurrier,
but until they hooked up last :week, in ..r
Northwest Florida for SEC Media Days, we
really hadn't heard much from the 01' Head
Ball Coach about the new Florida guy. "We
have a mutual respect and admiration,"
Spurrier said of Meyer. "He has an excellent
record and has done a great job."
OK, that's about as nice as it's going to get
between now and next fall when the Gators go
to Columbia, where there' is already a stiff s
scalpers' price on tickets. Florida fans only got
about a fourth of the tickets they requested.

Marlins with a score if 12-4. This team has really played hard to win with the Top Team spot this
year.
All the Major Boys teams were very good, which made for a very completive season. The
Rangers team has several boys on it that have played ball together since T-ball. Those boys are:
Jordon Philmon, Kirby Roberts, Colman Davis and David Sheheane. John Morgan Lord and Tyler
Rayborn joined the team during the minor league years. All of the boys have had a great timethis
season. From the very start of ,-- aW -. -n ,

Rangers team got to run out on
the Gators baseball field with the Gator player that played the same position of the Rangersplayer
on their DCLL field. Coach McMahon had an inspiring talk with the boys before the game started.
He explained how important it is to do your very best, work hard to achieve your goals, and to
always listen to your coach, let them be your guide. It was truly an experience that the Rangers team,
will never forget.
The Rangers played their first Top Team tournament game on May 28th, at the Centrak Citrus
Ball Complex, just outside Dunnellon, Fl. They lost the 1st game (Dixie Co. v/s Central Citrus).with
a score of 14 to 4. The tournament was a double elimination and the 2nd game was played on May
29th (Dixie Co. v/s Shady Hills). The Rangers lost that game as well with a score of 8to 4. The
SRangers represented Dixie County very well. They showed good sportsmanship and respect for

Congratulations to the Rangers team for a job well done and all the other teams who made this


season a season to remember

RUSH HOUR
(Teen Vogue) Cher Pastore, a
nutritionist with Chelsea Piers
sports complex in New York City,
says teenagers shouldn't have more
than 200 milligrams of caffeine a
day. But not every caffeinated
beverage is created equal the
following is the break down of
caffeinated beverages:
* Coffee -- The average cup of
coffee contains around' 80
milligrams of caffeine,
depending on how strongly it
was brewed. But size matters: A
Starbucks 16-ounce grande
coffee has' about 550 milligrams.
Though the average small
cappuccino, small latte and shot
of espresso has 90 milligrams
each, get a double-shot or a
medium and you're up to about
180 milligrams. And a single
blended drink can put you over
the limit: A 20-ounce Starbucks
Frappuccino has about 215
milligrams of caffeine. For more
info, go to
http://www.sleepfoundation.org/
caffeine.cfm and click on the
"Caffeine Calculator."
* Soda -- Most 12-ounce soft
drinks have between 30 and 45
milligrams of caffeine, but some
have more. Worse, each drink
contains about 10 teaspoons of
sugar empty calories with no
nutritional benefit. If you must
have it, "balance a can of soda
with a piece of fresh fruit and
some water," advices Liz
Applegate, Ph.D., author of "Eat
Smart, Play Hard."
* Energy Drinks -- Ashlee
Simpson admits that she "can't
live without" three or four Red
Bulls per day, but with an 8.3-
ounce can boasting about 80
milligrams of caffeine, Simpson
should consider cooling it.
Although Britney Spears denies
it, tabloids reported that she
chases alcohol with Red Bull
(bars often offer Red Bull and
vodka cocktails). But experts
say it's not a good idea to
combine stimulants and
depressants. "If you mix alcohol

Commodore's Revenge
Today, my friends, we have a story that has almost everything
that makes a good story. Well, almost everything. It's a tale of
gold, greed, revenge and success. Like I said, just about
everything. Well, except sex none in this story. Hmmm. Oh
well! And as with all of our stories, it's absolutely true.
Now I'm sure you've heard the famous name of Vanderbilt and
you may even know a bit about the name and the man who made it
famous: old Cornelius. But you may not know the story. And it'd
a pretty good one.
You see, Cornelius Vanderbilt was a man of his word in an era
of freewheeling finance. In 1849, the man who preferred to b6
called Commodore Vanderbilt founded a steamship line which rani
from the East Coast clear around to California. The new line was
designed to take advantage of the increased'traffic resulting from
the gold rush of '49. His line cut the usual fare in half and, in
addition, saved the traveler more than 600 miles by making an
over-the-land crossing in Nicaragua rather than Panama.
It was successful, that's for sure. The Commodore earned more'
than a million dollars in the first year. But in 1853, he decided to'
divest his assets to other investments, so he sold a large block of
his stock in the line to a group of outside investors. That soon
turned sour, as the investors refused to pay him for the stock. He;
wrote them a letter saying, "Gentlemen, you have undertaken to
cheat me. I won't sue you, as legal recourse will take too long. I;
will ruin you instead."
Let me tell you folks, this was no idle threat. He established a,
new shipping line to compete with the old one, and in less than two.
years had put his old partners completely out of business. All
totaled, the Commodore spent nine years running ships, and he,
made a fortune more than 10 million dollars, the equivalent of:
more than a billion in today's money.
But there's one more thing that you may not know. Remember.
I said he was running ships to supply miners and equipment etc., to:
the gold rush? Well, It's a Little Known Fact: that it was:
Commodore Vanderbilt who made more money during the famed'
California Gold Rush than any other person. More than 10 million
dollars, even more than the people looking for gold. And the.'
Commodore, well, he never lifted a shovel or pick once to do it.

with caffeine, you end up being
alert with poor judgement," says
Applegate. A possible`
explanation for Britney's Vegas
wedding shenanigans?
Tea -- Teas usually has less'
caffeine than coffee 20 to 90
milligrams, on average,
compared to brewed coffee's 60
to 180 milligrams. A 16-ounce
bottle iced tea, like Snapple,
contains about 45 milligrams.
Herbal tea is Caffeine-free.
DID YOU KNOW?
(Sun) Forget everything you've
heard about those "unhealthy"
foods like chocolate, popcorn and .
pizza. They're good for you,
experts say. So are many other
forbidden foods. Enjoy these not-
so-sinful pleasures guilt-free:
* Bacon! -- Sure it contains fat.
But it's also one of the best
sources of iron you can put into
your body. It's packed with
muscle-building protein and
loaded with B vitamins thiamin
and riboflavin.
* Pizza! -- The cooked tomatoes
and tomato sauce in America's
favorite fast food are a source of'
one of the most powerful
antioxidants known to man -
lycopene, which fights cancer.
and slashes heart disease risk,
Harvard researchers say. One
eye-opening study found people
who ate pizza once a week cut,
their cancer risk in half.
* Dark Chocolate! -- Fights,.
cancer better than green tea,
studies show. It also prevents
heart disease. A study of-
Harvard graduates found people
who were chocoholicss" lived .
longer.
* Popcorn! -- Mayo Clinic
researchers call it "a quality.
carbohydrate high in fiber and"
low in calories." Best to pop in a"
mono-unsaturated fat like canola.,
or olive oil.
* Bagels!-- Ball State University
researchers found the disk-
shaped treats provided cyclists
with as much energy as granola. .

Lydia Baptist Church News


Bro. Jac l and Sis. Barbara Adams, LBC Youth Leaders.
Si.. The Lydia Baptist Children's Church recently had a summer
.. kick ofl part., Bro-Jack Adams and his wife Sis. Barbara had a fun
Stine planned out for all ages. There was face painting and balloons
for the little ones and relay races for the older youth. A good time
\' as had by all.
Bro Jack & Sis Barbara have had a very successful year with
ihe LBC Children's Church. Each Sunday during the morning
%' uorshiip hour, the young children of the church meet in the
fello\v ship hall with Bro-Jack & Sis. Barbara. It -is there that they
experience all sorts of fun things. They meet characters like the bloodhound Rover Comer," along
with several different puppet characters. They enjoyed praise and worship singing and crafts, but
most of all.... every child has had an opportunity to get to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
The younger children of our churches are iour future churches of tomorrow. It is the responsibility
of each church in our community to lead and guide the youth of the county to accept Christ into their
hearts and to live a life that will be pleasing in the sight of the Lord. At LBC, they do just that, lead
and reach all ages in the way to become a saved Christian and make Heaven their future home.
Bro-Jack & Sis Barbara have done an excellent job with the youth of LBC. They will be kicking
off their Children's church once again with a Back to School Bash in late August. For anyone
wishing to obtain information about LBC. Children's Church Program, or any other of their
programs, please.call 498-3708 or 498-5619

My $ Rules for Safety


Before I go anywhere, I always
check first with my parents or the
person in charge. I tell them where
I am going, how I will get there, who
will be going with me, and when I'll
be back ... ..
SI cneck first for permission from
my parents before getting into a car
or leaving with anyone even
someone I know. I check first be-
fore changing plans or accepting
money, gifts, or drugs' without my
parents' knowledge.
3 It is safer for me to be with other
.people when going places or play-
ing outside. I always use the
"buddy system."
4 say NO if someone tries to touch
me in ways that make me feel fright-
ened, uncomfortable, or confused.
Then I go and tell a grown-up I trust
what happened.
I know it is not my fault if some-
one touches me in a way that is not
O.K. I don't have to keep secrets
about those touches.
6 I trust my feelings and talk to
grown-ups about problems that are
i too big for me to handle on my own.
A lot of people care about me and
will listen and believe me. I am not
alone.
7 It is never too late to ask for help.
I can keep asking until I get the help
I need.
S.1 am a special person, and I deserve
to feel safe. My rules are:
CHECK FIRST.
USE THE "BUDDY SYSTEM."
SAY NO, THEN GO AND TELL.
LISTEN TO MY FEELINGS, AND
TALK WITH GROWN-UPS I
TRUST ABOUT MY PROBLEMS
AND CONCERNS.

Dixie County Sightings


This week's "Sighting" speaks for itself...a beautiful 10 foot tall Cape
Jasmine! This beauty can be found at the home of Marjorie Hardman of
Cross City. Marjorie noted that the majestic bush got its start from a
cutting from the late Nell Shonoiker's mother-plant over 20 years ago.
Marjorie brought us a bouquet of the fragrant blooms to enjoy. Thanks
for the sighting, Marjorie!
The Dixie County Advocate is actively seeking unique information for
the Dixie County Sightings column. Call or send your Sightings in Dixie
County, to 352-498-3312 or email the picture and information to
