Two Separate Fires Destroy


Old Town Home & Car
,By TerriLangford- Staff Writer
An Old Town couple lost their home to a fire Tuesday, June 14th despite the
efforts of the Old Town, Cross City, and First District Fire Departments.
According to a Station 21 spokesperson, Rusty and Candace Bordine of 188 NE
595th Street (Petty Lane), were mowing Candace',s mothers lawn when they noticed
that their home was on fire. The call was made to 911, but the older single-wide
mobile home was already fully engulfed before help could arrive.
A preliminary investigation is pointing to a faulting electrical outlet in the living
room area as the cause of the blaze.
The only
injury was
when Rusty
tried to enter
the home and
burnt his
fingers. Dixie
EMS was on
hand to treat
his (Rusty's)
injury.
Also at the
scene was the
C.O.P.S&,

:. Te the fire, but
are determined to make the best of a bad situation. With the home not insured, they
have to start all over again. If you would like to help the Bordine's, you may make a
donation at Drummonds Bank in Cross City. You can also call 352-542-2010 or
352-283-0843 to find out what you can do to help our Dixie neighbor.
On the 15th Station 21 (Old Town) responded to a car fire call at the Red Barn
Saloon off US 19. An individual passing by saw the fire and called 911. When
firefighters arrived at the scene the 2002 Mitsubishi was still in,flames. The fire was
:so intense that it even melted a portion of the bar's vinyl siding.
The car had been parked by its owner, Linda Harris, and left overnight when she
left with her husband in his vehicle.
The cause of the fire was still unknown as of press time and is under
investigation by Harris's insurance company.
Other duties performed by the local volunteer firefighters this past week included
the removal of two trees that had fallen across two roadways. On the 12th a big oak
Stiprooted and fell over Wahoo Road in the Hammock.. The large oak that fell on the
13th across Tick Road was so large that it.took a backhoe to remove it from
obstructing the roadway.
SFire officials noted that these falling trees are common during a heavy rain
period, such as we have experienced in the past few months. With hurricane season
in its early days, residents can be sure that more of these uprootings will occur as we
'experience tropical conditions.

By Terri Langford- StlIt Wit, ....
Often we hear about Dixie County being an ideal location for ecotourism. \ith our pristine springs, the famous
Suwannee River and Gulf of Mexico it only stands to reason that Dixie is a tourists' dream "getaway" vacation; It is,,
however, the perfect "getaway" for locals as well.
Much credit should be given to our County Commissioners and the grant writing ability of our County Manager.
Arthur Bellot for all the hard work they have put into making our parks a "paradise in your own backward." Because
of their dedication to our county parks, Dixie can brag about the fact we have the largest number of boat ramps in the
Tri-County area, many of which have undergone extensive improvements.
Nestled next to the Suwannee River are Goronto Springs, Turner Point Landing, Hinton Landing, Joe Anderson"
Park, and Purvis Landing. Currently Turner Point Landing is undergoing a number of improvements. It was hoped
that the new/improved Turner Point would be ready for the Memorial Day Holiday, but the flooding on the Su\ annee,
stopped progress from being made. However, it was reported that crews are back on the job.
Shared Island Park and Horseshoe Park dot the Gulf coastline of Dixie and are quite popular with the locals.
DTRAC, Waldo and the Glen Dyals Parks are neighborhood parks where kids can ride their bikes afid enjoy an.
afternoon on the playground.
Most of these parks have boat ramps, restrooms, and picnic areas. Well maintained by the County, these parks
provide the perfect setting for family picnics, fishing, and boating, and in some parks, camping. It is important-to n6ote
that no alcoholic beverages and pets are allowed at the parks. Watch for the posted signs at each park entrance that.

Guantanamo 87, Baghdad 114
No, there wasn't a basketball game in which the boys from
Baghdad defeated the guys from Gitmo. The above is a weather
report, reflecting typical daily temperatures at these two locations.
The U.S. Naval station at the southeastern tip of Cuba-a
thorn in the side of Fidel Castro and American liberals for nearly
half a century-houses some of our nation's most dangerous
enemies in a prison with accommodations better than most of
them left back home. Baghdad, of course, is where a large
segment of our troops fighting in the Middle East are stationed.
Typical afternoon high temperatures at Guantanamo are in the
high 80's. In Baghdad, well over 100 degrees. The Gitmo
prisoners wear prison uniforms that are far more comfortable in
hot weather than the full field equipment our troops in Iraq wear
on duty. Most of the Gitmo prisoners have air-conditioned cells.
Our troops have only fond memories of air conditioning.
Still, Amnesty International and the International Red Cross
are accusing the United States of abusing prisoners. Senator
Richard Durbin (D-IL) has compared our military personnel with
Nazis for the way we treat the terrorists housed at Gitmo.
We could (but probably won't) deal with Amnesty,
International and the International Red Cross simply by denying
them access and withholding financial support. As for Senator
Durbin's remarks, they amount to giving aid and comfort to the
enemy, and I believe that qualifies as treason; and if I'm not
mistaken, treason disqualifies one from holding federal office.
But don't look for any serious repercussions here, either.
We are involved in a war, not a social experiment. If the New
York Times, CBS News, the Hollywood crowd, the European
socialist nations we rescued from the Nazis and the Soviets, the
UN and the rest of the gaggle are so upset because we've made a
few Gitmo prisoners uncomfortable in an effort to obtain
information that could save the lives of our troops, Iraqi and
Ametican civilians, then it's about time these people explained to
the .'merican public just whose side they're on.
As fotr the Guantanamo situation, the detainees there are not
prisoners of war according to the terms of the Geneva
Conventions, and even if they were, POW's are released only after
a war, or as a result of negotiations with an enemy nation. The
war is not over and these prisoners do not represent any nation, so
they might as well be satisfied with their complementary Korans,
prayer rugs. air conditioning and three squares a day. Under such
circumstances, prisoners are put on trial only if they are suspected
of specific war crimes, in which case they can be a) acquitted and
returned to prisoner status, or b) convicted and executed.
Let's qualify that by pointing out that prisoners could be
release if it is established that they do not qualify as "unlawful
enemy combatants." Some have been released under this stipula-
tion, andc some of these have turned up back on the battlefield,
exchanging fire with our military personnel. Obviously, we need
to be extremely careful about who--if anyone-we release.
It has been suggested that we close Gitmo. Well, why not? Just
turn them all, loose in Springfield, Illinois. That's Senator
Durbin's home town, and we'll see if he gets re-elected.
And of course, we have those insisting that we should set a
date for getting our personnel out of Iraq. That way, the terrorists
could just re-group and lay in the weeds until we're gone, after
which they would have a lot less of a problem overthrowing Iraq's
elected government.
If that's what you'd like to see happen, then by all means
agitate to close Gitmo and tell the terrorists exactly when we're
g9 g.to abandon Iraq,

State's Budget

Provides

Record Funding

For Elders
Continuing a commitment
to elder Floridians, Governor
Jeb Bush today signed into law
the 2005-06 State budget,
providing the Florida
Department of Elder Affairs
with $365.8 million in
funding. Since 1999, the
Department has received a 70.9
percent increase in funding for
elder services. This record level
funding will allow the
Department to carry out its
mission of creating an
environment that provides
mature Floridians choices to
remain independent in their
homes and communities.
"The Bush/Jennings
administration and the Florida
Legislature have once again
shown their commitment to
assisting Florida's elders," said
Department of Elder Affairs
Secretary Carole Green.
"Through their- leadership, the
Department will continue to
provide critical services to
those most in need and foster a
spirit of independence and
dignity amongst our seniors."
Budget recommendations
directly impacting elder
Floridians include the
following highlights:
Helping the Most Frail.
$11.4 million:To reduce the
number of frail and vulnerable
elders waiting for services,
funding has been allocated for
the Assisted Living for the
Frail Elderly and Aged and
Disabled Adult Medicaid
waivers. The funding will help
more than 1,500 frail elders
receive care.
Aging Resource Centers,
$725,000: Improving entry
into the system, Aging
Resource Centers will build on
the strengths of the current
long-term care network and
enhance opportunities for
Florida seniors and caregivers
to receive seamless services. In
addition to a federal grant
awarded to the Department in
April 2004, this budget will
help develop a system that is
easier to navigate, making
long-term care responsibilities
more efficient.

2005-06 budget visit

of Elder Affairs, please contact

Recognizing Identity Theft: Businesses
Fight Nation's Fastest-Growing Crime


(NAPS)-Identity theft is
big business. In fact, compa-
nies lose, on average, nearly
$50 billion annually through
the theft of proprietary infor-
mation. With these crimes
showing no signs of waning,
the Federal Trade Commission
enacted a provision under the
Fair and Accurate Credit
Transactions Act (FACTA)
'.: entitled "Proper Disposal of

and Records." The provision
., requiress businesses-even
Those employing just one per-
'' son-to properly dispose of a
consumer report or any record
derived from one. This includes
data pulled from credit reports
and credit scores.
\, The FTC, according to the
,provision, generally recom-
mends destroying or shred-
d -ing records containing con-
sumer information. Depend-
ing upon the volume of per-
sonal records, this method of
destruction can be accom-
plished easily with the pur-
chase of a shredder.
The leading manufacturer
{ of shredders for home and
office use offers the largest
selection of innovative shred-
ding solutions.

is Dennis Wayne Bennett, Dixie Superintendent of Schools and
ey the School Board Members extended their heartfelt thanks to the
rP Post and their members. "We can't thank you enough for giving of
your time and effort put into helping with this project," stated
he Bennett.
of The VFW Chiefland Post 5625 is unique in that they serve
in Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist County veterans. Representing every
ld branch of the military, the VFW is committed to helping those who
have served our country overseas. If you would like to know more
re about what the VFW, you may contact the Post at 352-493-1159.
in FYI: How to Fly the American Flag 1) The flag should be
ch hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously. 2) The flag is never
ne allowed to touch the ground or the floor. 3) When hung over a
th sidewalk on a rope extending from a building to a pole, the union
ee stars are always away from the building. 4) When vertically hung
y. over the center of the street, the flag always has the union stars to
y, the north in an east/west street, and to the east in a north/south
ty street. 5) The flag of the United States of America should be at the
center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags
ty of states or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and
ie displayed from staffs. 6) The flag should never be festooned,
drawn back, nor up in folds but always allowed to fall free. 7) The
ke flag should be displayed at half-staff until noon on Memorial Day
then raised to the top of the staff. 8) Never fly the flag upside down
except as a signal of distress in instances of extreme danger to life
or property. 9) The flag is never flown in inclement weather except
when using an all-weather flag. 10) The flag can be flown every
day from sunrise to sunset and at night if illuminated properly.
The American Flag represents the living country and is
considered to be a living thing. It symbolizes the respect-and pride
we have for our nation, for our ideals of individual liberty, justice
and equality for all. Our flag is a precious possession and should
always be displayed proudly and with respect.
Many thanks to the VFW for giving our children this special gift.

Behold the Tabernacle of God
Rev 21:3
The Headship Ministry"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say It would,
seem as though the children of Israel had enough troubles without
Moses telling them that the Lord would redeem them with great
judgments. But they were to learn a great lesson as they left the.
land of bondage. It was true they were coming out of Egypt but
Egypt had not come out of them. And so it was necessary that they
go through the wildness experience that they might be tried.
Thorns, thistles, and a dry land would try them. All of us must go
through the wilderness if we desire to inherit the land of milk and
honey. The wilderness experience will bring out things within-us
that we did not know was there. I, the Day of the Lord, say both
Moses and Pharaoh were chosen vessels. Both of these men had an
office to fulfill in God's plan. They were in opposition to eadh
other yet they 'were working together to bring forth diviU9
government. We sometimes look at Pharaoh as a tyrant that cart4
against God's people to destroy them. But God used him for Hfi
own glory. God hardened his heart. In Romans 9:17 We read, For
the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I
raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee and that my
name might be declared throughout all the earth. Who raised
Pharaoh up? God did! Where was God's power and authority? In
Pharaoh! So you see God used whom He will. God used Pharaoh
and He also used His servant Moses. Paul said that there is no
power but God. Yet we look around and see many things we do not
understand. It takes the spirit of revelation to see God in all things,
I know for years I thought there were two powers working in this
world. I had God in one comer and the devil in the other. I, the
Day of the Lord, says This little illustration I am about to share,
with you will help you to see things clearly. It takes a negative.
wire and positive wire to make a light bulb work. Two positive
wires will not work. Nor will two negative wires work. There must
be a balance of the negative and of the positive wires. I the Day of,
the Lord, say but there is only ONE power that makes the light.,
work and that is electricity. When we look at our world and we see
good and evil working we came to the conclusion that there are
two powers working, but we are wrong! The good and the evil are
only channels and they operate by one power called God.
Continued next week.... .,

Abundant Life & Living
Proverbs 18:21. Matthew 12:37 (kjv) Solomon wrote, Death
and life is in the power of the tongue and Jesus said by thy
words you shall be justified....We are learning to speak to our
conditions or restrictions. God
spoke into existence the whole
world and it is. He then created
human beings in his image and
after his likeness. We can be like
him in the lifestyle of abundant
living. God did not say I was what
I was. He did not say. I will be
what you want me to be. He said "I
am that I am" This is the most
Creative name God has ever given
to man.
What we speak becomes alive,
Lucille Stockton words have power. Also be careful
What you think. Thoughts are things. "So a man thinketh so is
he ," Speak words of life. Notice the words spoken to you, if they
"Siy I am sick" God sustains those words. If someone say "I am
well" God will contribute to the power of health. Out of all of
qod's creation; man is the only creation that can say, I am. The
name I AM has the power to change the negative to positive
speaking. Try practicing it. Speak into the universe, I am
healthy, I am peaceful, I am loving, I am thankful, I am wise, I
am patient, I am kind, I am alive and well.. The airwaves will
pick it up. "Love Life And Live It"

The Word Made
Flesh
The divine Trinity"
Continued from last week, I the
son of man, say (1) The theology of
the whole Christian world is founded
on the Worship of three God's (2)
God is one in essence and person. (3)
In Him is a trinity and this must not
be distinguished into persons. (4)
i:.The Di\ ne attributes constitute His
'essence i5) These are many, and
. also succeeding (6) The succeeding
; Di\ine attributes are creation and
i preservation, redemption' and
; salvation, reformation and
regeneration 17) These are Divine,
But that the\ are not as God is in.
Himself (8l The one God willed to
,'.become a natural Man, and thus a
full Man, for many reasons, the
primarN of which was the
redempnon of angels and men. (9)
r Passages from scripture showing that
there is one God. (10) He is the
' Redeemer and Savior. (11) He came
':tinio the %\orld (12) As to His
,human, He called Himself Jesus
:;Christ. 13) Jehovah Himself came
into the world and became the Savior
and Redeemer (14) The one God is
not onl\ the creator, but also the
Redeemer and Regenerator. (15) As
to the Di\ me truth, He descended
,"and took upon Himself the Human,
'is confirmed in John, Chap. 1; also
: that He %%as from eternity, also from
'His nan\tn, Luke 1. (16) Passages
frdm the scared Scripture showing
that: He is the Truth and the light;
also, that He is the Word and that He
Qlfilled the whole of it (17) All
thingss were made by Him, (18) In
,he spiritual sense, Divine truth is
i:lled the Son of God. (19) Divine
1Buth is meant by Messiah, Christ,
Iing the anointed and David. (20)
divinee truth is meant by angel and
one sent. (21) Divine truth is
tneant by glory. (22) In no other way
pould all things in the heavens and in
lfie hell have been reduced into
'rder. (23) In no other way could He
destroy the old church and institute a
.new church. (24) In no other way
1ould He admit- temptations into
l-imself jnd suffer. (25) In no other
\wa3 could He be in the state of
e.tinan mion and pray to God the
father as through absent. (26) In no
other ,vay could He become
redemption and Justice from His
'own power. (27) Thus, in no other
,:,, could He unite the Human to the
PD mine and the reverse, and thus add
he Human in time to the Divine
4om eternity. Please stay with me,
'Love you continued next week


Prayer
Holy Sprit,
You who solve all
problems, who light all roads
so that I can obtain my goals.
You who gave 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 material's 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 smallest horse is the
Fallabella, which grows only
30 inches high.

for tobacco P *. "i -. ,'

farmers
Researchers with the J : '''
University 6f Florida's Institute ^PV' .
of Food and Agricultural o V ,' .. ,
Scietis,- 'or UF/IFAS have ,
found an alternative source of '' .;
intoe;.-to. help replace the
revenue; ,tobacco farmers are
'Ising.,; Although there is probably no single replacement crop for
iob:cco,.native wildflowerseed is one alternative crop that could
play a-ineaningful role in alleviating some of the revenue losses in
the tobaoe.o-based economy of 20 northern Florida counties,
including Dixie. ,.
.,: MWhile Florida wildflower seed production and marketing is. in
its.ihfancy;,there is a growing market. There is a strong demand for
native ,wildflower seed derived from naturally occurring Florida
populations but Florida's fledgling native wildflower seed,
ihduslr', cannott meet current and projected demand. So instead of
purchasing seed from within the state, agencies such as The
Florida. Departmnient of Transportation (FDOT) are forced to buy
seed from major seed producing states such as Texas.
:. O O. is currently the largest buyer of wildflower seed in
Florida ,Other large land management agencies, such as Water
Manaagement Districts, along with private companies that must
reclaim 'large areas of land also have expressed strong interest in
purchasing Florida ecotypes of native wildflower seed.
Florido'ecotype wildflower seed has potential as a high-value
crp., [Depending on species, Florida growers are currently
receikvig'$35 100 per pound, with typical yields of 20 60
pounds per acre.
It should be noted that although wildflower seed production

rich quick business,." said UF/IFAS \'.ildflo\'.er researcher, Dr.
Jeff Norcinim, who is based atthe North Florida Research and
Edu6ationt. Center in Quincy (NFREC-Quincy). "New growers
'slioildk art small and then expand; be prepared to invest dollars
tid s\\ eat equity."
)'Gidwfrs 'interested in starting a wildflower seed operation can
purchase seed from the Wildflower Seed and Plant Growers
Association, Inc., a co-operative of Florida growers, which was
established in 2003. If purchased from another source, the FDACS
offers (his tip, "Wherever transplant or seed is purchased, make

Florida Watermelon To Be

Featured During Wal-Mart

'Fantastic Four' Promotion

Nationwide On June 25
The- Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services has teamed up with Wal-Mart and the Produce for
Better Health Foundation to encourage children to eat more fresh
fruits and vegetables for a healthier lifestyle.
Families who visit Wal-Mart's 1,700 Supercenters and
Neighborhood Markets on June 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. will
find produce sections featuring characters and themes from the
upcoming "Fantastic Four" children's action movie. The movie,
which will be released on July 8, is based on the classic comic
book strip that focuses on astronauts who have become super
heroes.
"These popular comic book heroes will help capture children's
attention about the importance of healthy .eating," Florida
Agriculture Commissioner Charles H. Bronson said. "Attracting
children to the grocery store produce section and encouraging
them to sample fresh fruits and vegetables can help them
discover that healthy eating can be fun, too."


The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services is providing free samples of fresh Florida watermelon, a
traditional summertime favorite, in 107 Florida Wal-Mart
Supercenter produce sections during the June 25 event. The
"Fresh from Florida" logo will also be featured on point-of-sale
and display materials promoting watermelon and other Florida-
grown produce.
The Produce for Better Health Foundation's "5 A Day The
Color Way" encourages young people to get their five daily
servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. During the Wal-MAit
event, children will receive an activity book that includes kid-
friendly recipes. Parents will receive the "5 A Day The Color
Way" guide, which introduces them to the benefits of choosing a
variety of health-promoting fruits and vegetables from each of-
the five color groups, and provides other helpful information
including a serving size guide.
"Our goal is to educate families about the new. DietaW.
Guidelines for Americans' recommendation to eat more fruits and.
vegetables than any other food group -- about half your plati,;.
said Elizabeth Pivonka, Ph.D., R.D., president of the Produce
for Better Health Foundation.

Steinhatchee Water Association, Inc.

2004 Quality Water Report
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you
every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually
improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the, quality of your water. The Association's wells, which draw
from the Floridan Aquifer, have beeildetermined to be under the direct influence of surface water. A treatment facility has been constructed to remove any potential
harmful constituents. We add chlorine for disinfection and a coagulant to aid in the sequestration of organic and inorganic solids, including iron. The water is then
filtered to remove the sequestered materials. Additionally, the Association is pursuing additional sources that are not under the influence of.surface water.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Rex Dunn at the Steinhatchee Water Association Office at (352) 498-3576.
We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are;
held on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00PM at the Association office.
Steinhttchee Water Association routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2004. Data obtained before January 1, 2004 and
presented in this report are from the mrr' receri testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table belo,".C\ ..u ma\ tird unfamialar term_ and I.hbreMaiioris To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible
using the be 3 a%'.ihbble treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. 4
MCIGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminate that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Treatment Technique (TT): A required process intoided to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition ofa -
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Nlaximum residual disinfectant lecel goal or.MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. '

Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present.
For the monitoring period of 08/01/04 through 08/31/04, five total coliform bacteria samples were required and three were taken. We therefore were in violation of
monitoring and reporting requirements. Sampling resumed on 09/01/04.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface
of the land or through. the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the
presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and
wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production,
and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants; which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water
systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public
health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not
necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental
Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer
undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means
to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosppridium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at Steinhatchee Water Association would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of
the numbers listed.

Buddy Martin's
Weekly Sports Commentary
Hanging out with the

eCw O1' Ball Coach
" COLUMBIA, S.C. The 01' Ball Coach is a
new man.
'Fully recuperated from a tour of duty in
Washington, Steve Spurrier is invigorated by
the challenge ahead at South Carolina, which is
considerable in the power-laden Southeastern
Conference Eastern Division.
The Gamecocks' new head football coach
-, relishes his
surroundings and, at
age 60, is already
4: taking aim at the
school coaching
record of 64 wins.
"When I was 50, I
thought 60 was old,"
he said. "Now I can
see myself coaching
here until I'm 70 if
they'll let me."
He averaged 10 wins in 12 years at Florida.
.,He'll need to average more than six wins to
;break the record at USC if he coaches for a
,decade.
In the meantime, he has changed the look of
*the S.C. uniforms, putting garnet heaven
:forbid, Florida State fans in place of the
,brighter red. Black shoes are gone, white shoes
-.are in. There could also be a different touch on
nthe helmets.
,: Spurrier has already begun making his mark
V;at South Carolina.
. Building traditions as he did at Florida will
.come slower for the man who dubbed Florida
'4Field "The Swamp," insisted on players
'!hanging around after games to sing the school
alma mater and branded his offense "The Fun,
N Gun."
Currently Spurrier is searching for a new
*nickname to tag on Williams-Bryce Stadium.
I "The CockPit" was suggested by some, but
Spurrier winced, saying, "we're trying to get
away from that cockfighting imagee' ...
It's not lost on him that-last season-ended up
%\\ith just that: The Gamecocks fist-fighting
v with the Clemson Tigers. The ugly melee cost
Lou Holtz's team a trip to a bowl and resulted
in the permanent dismissal of several players.
Off-season and off-the-field behavior have
been a big topic around campus.
SSpuriier's discipline comes with low
-; tolerance and swift justice. In early spring he
-. axed Demetris Summers, the star running back,
for conduct unbecoming to the university.
"I think they know that I move quickly on
those things if players do anything to
embarrass the university," he said.
There's enough work ahead for Spurrier
without having to pull players out of bar fights
;, and such.
'-- The paradox of a six-time SEC champion
u coach coming to a place with a long history of
losing causes people to scratch their heads and
i wonder why.
"It was something new and different and
|1 challenging," Spurrier said last week, as he
;' took a visiting sports writer on a tour of the
p school's impressive facilities. "This is a neat
place. South Carolina ... a lot of people don't
;, know how nice it is. People are starving for
!, success."
Spurrier will have to turn around a long train
, that includes those posh Cockabooses at the
' stadium where avid alumni and fans party
;# hearty. Lou Holtz couldn't do it. In five years
Shlie won 33 times and lost 37, with one 9-3
season.
n In 111 years, USC coaches haven't won half
f their games, with a school mark of 495-512-44,

a winning percentage of just .492. The school
has only been a member of the rugged SEC
since 1992.
The last USC coach to break .500 was Joe
Morrison with a career record of 39-28-2 from
1983-88. He died in office of a heart attack.
So, indeed, winning at S.C. is a supreme
challenge, even for a man who holds the SEC
record for career winning percentage in
conference games with an 87-14 (.861).
Spurrier will coach a bunch of young
roosters without an experienced quarterback,
but remember that he also came to Florida in
1990 and picked a guy named Shane Matthews
from fifth place on the depth chart.
He likes his recruiting class. "We did better
than we thought we would signed the last
seven guys who visited here."
Spurrier is confident he can find players.
Some will come because of his success with
the Gators. And because he has made football
fun.
He now knows going to Washington to
coach the Redskins was a mistake "I did it
for the money and got the result you usually
get when you do things for money" and takes
full blame. He couldn't even pick his own
quarterback in the second year. That's when it
knew it was over.
The DNA of Spurrier's success will always
linger in the echoes of "The Swamp," despite
his admitted failure as-coach of the Redskins.
How could it not with 122-27-1 record and one
national championship at the University of
Florida and an overall college record of 142-
40-2 in 15 seasons.
Can he even some close to that at South
Carolina?
Bryce-Williams is bound to be a rollicking
place, with all 80,250 seats likely to be filled
for every one of the seven home game, starting
with the ESPN Thursday night game against
Central Florida.
Trying to get a ticket to the Nov. 11 game
with Florida is a joke. Only 6,000 were allotted
to Florida fans through the UF. Suddenly
Spurrier has a number of "close friends"
calling about their ticket needs to no avail.
He doesn't have any.
Looking back on his work in Gainesville,
Spurrier seems to have resolved the -initial
yearnings he had to come back after the firing
of Ron Zook. The timing didn't work out.for
him because as Florida President Bernie
Machen was deliberating, South Carolina
Athletic Director Mike McGee came calling.
But Spurrier didn't want to chase his own
ghosts at Florida and has no bitter feelings.
As he rolled along the highway en route to
drop some clothes off at his luxurious new
home at Woodbridge Farms, Spurrier asked a
rhetorical question for his guest and then
answered it.
"Well, why did I leave? I left because after
12 years I was a little burned out after doing 20
Gator Clubs a year. Maybe I was bored in the
same job after 10 years, just like you've move
around.
"And now I'm convinced that coming here
was the best thing for me, for South Carolina -
and probably the best thing for Florida.
"They (the UF) got a good coach who can
go possibly 15-20 years and probably should
do so. So I think it's worked out good for. all
concerned.
"If it happened that I went back, I would be
doing things I've done before. Now I've got a
chance to do things that have never been done
before at South Carolina.
"The challenge is good for everyone. And I
hope the Gators understand all that. I think a
lot of them do."
Try telling Gator fans that on the day he
comes back to haunt Urban Meyers' football
team. And youknow he will.

enemies and slapping teammates
on the ass without the fear of
persecution.

bladder. The redskins fall for the
Patriots' "typhoid blanket" trick
play.

free agency. Bastard.

Berlin. Within minutes the first

to-be stadium anthem "We Will

the drug-addicted, woman-
abusing players they've come to

I


Thanksgiving Day game's best
players. Unsurprisingly, he

He was ambitious, that's for sure. But Henry's dad worried
that he might not be doing the right thing. After all, he was only in
the eighth grade and he was dropping out to go to work full time.
Funny thing was, the family didn't really need the money. But
Henry, well he just couldn't see where all that book learning was.
going to get him.
Now, this all happened back around the beginning of the 20thi
century (about 1906 or so) and believe it or not, it wasn't all that:
unusual for youngsters, especially boys, to drop out of school and
go to work to help support their family. Except in this case:
Henry's family was doing all right. They didn't need the help,;
But Henry had had enough school. That's all there was to it!'
He really didn't stop learning though. He started reading books
that he thought would help him in life, like bookkeeping. He got a;
job in a bank and started reading all he could on banking. Henry;
was a go-getter and St. Louis was a good town to be a go-getter -
lots of opportunity. As he approached his 18th birthday, as you;
might guess, his thoughts turned to the fairer sex. One thing he:
noticed though, there wasn't a good place where a young manr
could meet a young lady. Henry thought there should be, so he'
started a dance club. He called it the Herculaneum Dance Club. '
It was a big success right from the start. Evidently, a lot of
young people felt the same way. Within two years, his little dance
club became the most popular social organization in St. Louis. 'In
1914 Henry's club merged with six other clubs and Henry was
elected president of the whole thing. It expanded even more, and
took on a new name: the Junior Citizens. Must have been a pretty,
good name, because the Junior Citizens have since expanded
nationwide, with thousands of chapters and millions of members.:
And all from a little dance club in St. Louis, where some young
men wanted a place to meet young ladies.
It's a Little Known Fact that the Junior Citizens, which was
started by Henry Giessenbier, Jr., an eighth grade drop out, started
calling themselves by the initials of their organization: the
Jaycees. And they once again changed their name to the Junidr
Chamber of Commerce. But you know, I'm not sure how much
dancing they do these days!

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Students riding buses 4 & 6 celebrated the
end of the 2004-2005 school year with their
Annual Precious Hearts Dance and the crowning
of their Kings & Queens. Held at the First
District Community Center, the theme was
western and over 40 cowgirls and cowboys
attended along with their families for an
afternoon of great fun, great food and great
fellowship.
Marie Futch, Bus Driver 'for bus 6, started
the annual dance six years ago. She gives credit
to: the wonderful businesses throughout the Tri-
County area for their generous donations.
Whether it be food, decorations, prizes or a
monetary contribution, the dance would not be
possible without their support. Marie works
throughout the year, collecting the donations,
purchasing items needed for the dance and
making sure that everything is perfect when her
students arrive. She is grateful to all those who
help her.
: This year one young man, who has been
there for five of the six years, was given special
recognition, Jamie King. Jamie has always been
there for Marie and her kids, providing the
music for the dances and keeping the.

enthusiasm high with his "DJ" antics. Marie
presented Jamie with a plaque expressing how
grateful she and the students are for his time and
devotion to their yearly celebration.
From the two buses, one student graduated
this year, Eric Hockmeyer. Eric was given a
special certificate and lots of hugs from Miss
Marie and his fellow students. Congratulations,
Eric....you did it!
Before enjoying a feast of hot dogs, pizza,
fried chicken, chips, cake, etc., the much
anticipated crowning of the King & Queen and
their Court was announced. Bus 6's 2005 King
is Eric Hockmeyer and his Queen Samantha
Ealum. Their Court consists of Prince Austin
Reynolds and Princess Ashley Innman. Joining
in the fun, Bus 4, driven by Nell Morales, also
crowned their 2005 King, Austin Daniels and
his Queen Alexis Mitchell with their Court
consisting of Prince Chad Allen and Princess
Bethany Hicks. Congratulations to you all!
Pictures were taken of each attendee, as a
memento of the wonderful celebration they had
with their friends whom they shared many hours
on Miss Marie and Miss Nell's buses.
See you in August!

Log Cabin

Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thurs. June 16th at the Levy Co.
Quilt Museum. What a
wonderful day we had with six
visitors from Summerfield and
Barbara Lunsford and her
daughter, Becky. Barbara won
the quilt at the Watermelon
festival and has had lots of fun as
some teased her that the drawing
was rigged. No way, as no one
can tell who will win. One lady
from Summerfield brought over
an old quilt top and it was put
together and she will be quilting
it at home, but she will have a
treasure when quilted. Jarrod and
nine boys were out Tues. to mow
and make our yard look so great.
With all the rain some will be
coming each week. The boys
helped make pickles; last time
was sour Kraut who knows what
they will learn next. Ann Hardee

Old Town Chicks Red Hats enjoyed a nice time at the backyard
BBQ in Newberry on May 31, 2005. Everyone was dressed in their
Red Hat BBQ outfits and having a great time. We had a new Red,
Hat from Old Town join us at this meeting and hope she joins us
for our monthly doings.
Also about once a month we have a craft day and all get
together and do whatever craft's we desire and just sit around 'and
get to know each other better. What fun! Til our next outing, this is-
point and shooter signing out. The hostesses for this month did'an
excellent job on decorating and the cake was wonderful. Good job
girls.
Elaine Howell


came by to see us. She goes to
the nursing home in Trenton
everyday to take care or Wayne
and it seems they are both
improving. Lunch was something


else today. Chicken
dumplings, fresh creamed
fried eggplant, fried
chicken, slaw, salad,
watermelon and Canalope.

DCHS Class of 1955


Celebrates 50 Years


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The place...Putnam Lodge, the
theme..."Moonlight & Roses", the
occasion...Dixie County High School Senior
Prom, the year... 1955. Those are the memories
that flooded the members of the DCHS Class of
1955 as they gathered for their 50th Reunion
this past May at the Putnam Lodge.
Of the thirty-three in the class, 20 were able
to attend the special event, some traveling from
as far away as California and Alabama. Seven,
sadly have passed away and a special time of
remembrance was held in their honor.
Those who have passed are James
Buchanan, Billy Don Carey, Walter Hutchins,
Norman Lee, William "Billy" Summerall,
Gerald Wood and Romona Padget Hodge.
Their presence was sorely missed, but the
memories that each had with these wonderful
people will never die.
Prior to a delicious dinner, prepared by none
other than Elaine's Catering, the members were
able to visit and "catch up". Then, one-by-one
they rose and told their fellow members what
they were most proud of in their lives. Top on
the list was their spouse, followed by their
grandchildren. Most all of them, however, added
by saying that they were proud to have lived in
Dixie County and been a part of the Class of
1955.
It was obvious that this class is very close
and caring. Since 2001 the many members have
made it a point to meet every three months. The
turnout is always impressive and the fellowship
that they share, priceless.
One thing they always have agreed on is
what a wonderful education they were provided.
They also realize that today's youth have to
struggle in order to further their education after
high school. Being an active class, the members
got together and decided to start up a
scholarship fund for future DCHS graduates.
This, their first year, they were able to provide


two-$ 1,250 scholarships. The Class of 1955 has
issued a challenge to the Class of 1956 and 1957
to "top" their $2,900.00 total for their fifty-year
proteg6s.
The evening's festive feeling was
highlighted by the Putnam Lodge itself. The
members were amazed at wonderful work done
at the Lodge by owner, Ardith Eagan and Ernie
Tolkey. As a token of their appreciation for
resorting the Lodge and allowing them to hold
their reunion in such a nostalgic place, Mrs.
Eagan was presented with a beautiful vase, one
that a little bird had told them that she had her
eye on.
Once the meal was finish...good job as
always Elaine, members continued their
reminiscing and bonding. Class President
Kenneth Jones reminded his fellow "50-
Something" classmates of more gentle times
with the follow: "Upon reflection, I would like
to point out that it was not the senior citizens
who took the melody out of music, the pride
out of appearance, the romance out of love, the
responsibility out of parenthood, the learning
out of education, the service out of patriotism,
the civility out of behavior, the refinement out
of language, the dedication out of employment,
the prudence out of spending, the ambition out
of achievement, and were certainly are not the
ones who eliminated patience and tolerance
form relationships." "So there!"
Much can be learned from our seniors, like
the members of Class of 1955 who are a
marvelous example of what pride and dedication
are about. They have continued to reach out to
each other, keeping their promises of never
forgetting one another and taking pride in their
school and community.

What a wonderful time, what wonderful
folks. Here's to 50-more!

"Spud-lious"
This weeks Dixie Sighting comes to us by way of Dan O'Toole.
Dan bought the unique "spud" at Foodland a few weeks back and
thought we might want to feature it. After all, it's not everyday that you
see a triplet-potato. 0 r would it be potatoes? He said it reminded him of
the "Trinity", others have said it looks like an old time baseball glove,
and the letter "W". But for us true potato lovers...it looks like the
