For Suspects In Family

Dollar Break-in
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Early Sunday, July 10th Family Dollar Store Manager, Joann
Hand went to check on the store to see if it sustained any damage
due to the winds and rains we were experiencing as Hurricane
Dennis approached the Florida coast. Hand did find damage, but

from burglars as they broke the front entrance door and the
managers door before removing the safe from her office.
Calling 911, Hand waited until a Sheriff's Deputy arrived at the
scene. While the glass entrance door was shattered, the office door
had:been kicked in, apparent from the large shoe print left on the
-wooden door. The only item missing from the office was the safe.
with an undisclosed amount of money in it.
Hand noted that the rest of the store looked untouched and that
it appeared that the safe was the only item the thieves were after.
"I'm just glad we weren't here," Hand stated.
" The store opened at its regular time and business was
conducted as usual, but the feeling of being vulnerable still has not
left Hand

Chiefland Man Arrested In

Dixie On Drug Charges
On June 23, 2005, Ricky Alston of Chiefland was arrested and

County Sheriffs Office Narcotic Unit observed Alston in a drug
sale.
On July 4, 2005 in the morning hours a search warrant was
served at a residence located on Chesshall Street in Cross City. The
warrant was issued after the Dixie County Sheriffs Office

Evidence associated with the sale or manufacture of illegal drugs
Was seized at the residence. The investigation is still ongoing at

your community; help the DSO keep it safe for our children.

ByTerri Langfor4- Staff Il riter
Dixie's coastal -communifieS -received part of"Iurricane
Dennis's wrath as he traveled up Florida's coast, eventually
making landfall in Florida's Panhandle on Sunday, July 10th. It
was Sunday morning when Dixie County began to feel the
category 4 hurricanes' strong feeder-bands as they stretched over
the state of Florida and while winds were minimal, the storm
surge combined with high tide brought water in excess of 4-7
feet into homes and businesses.
Earlier on Friday, Director of Emergency Services, Chad
Reed called for a pre-storm preparedness meeting, which.
included .Commissioners, County Manager, County department
heads and representatives from the Division of Forestry, Game &
Fish, Health Department, Cross City Correctional, fire
departments, law enforcement and the Red Cross. The purpose
of the meeting was to bring officials up to date on the storm's
path and potential danger.
The following morning, Saturday, the Commission declared a
local state of emergency. Reed was quick to note that they
weren't "jumping the gun", but preparing for whatever Dennis
was bringing;
As Dennis approached its target, Dixie began to experience
rain and light winds. Saturday and Sunday's rain totals were
from five to seven inches countywide. Some residents had tree
limbs fall, but there were no reports of damage to homes.
However, it was the coast that took the brunt of the damage from


Dennis .
Reed stated that the National Weather Center predicted a 2-4.
foot storm surge; by early morning on Sunday it was ob% ious that
the waters would surpass that figure. Residents began movinig.
their boats and RV's inland and protecting what they could from
the rising waters.
Once waters began to recede, EMS, law enforcement and fire.
departments were out clearing the roadways. On Monday county
road crews and Dixie Sheriff's Office and Cross City.-.
Correctional Institute work crews continued the cleaning of the ,:
roads.
Monday, Reed and his crew began their assessment of the-
damage sustained the previous day. There were 70 structures,"
with minimal damage, 40 with major damage and:.19 destroyed *
by the waters. Officials have already filed the necessary
paperwork in order to be added to the Federal list for aid.
"We were very lucky with Dennis," stated Reed. "We are;
already looking at another storm, Emily," he added. White
Emily's path is not yet certain, Reed could not stress enough, the"
importance of being prepared. "Residents need'to have a:
hurricane kit ready, with supplies to last 72 to 96 hours," he said.
If you are uncertain what those items should be, call the
Emergency Management Office at 498-1240 or log onto the
EMS website at www.dixieemergency.com


Celebrate Florida Heritage At The Cedar Keys

Light Station On Seahorse Key


JNormally closed, the doors to the lighthouse on Seahorse Key will be open on Saturday.
SThe historic lighthouse on Seahorse Key opens its doors to the public Saturday July 16, from
8:00 A.M. 4:00 P.M. You're invited to join the Refuge Ranger, volunteers and the University of
Flonda Marine Lab staff for a day of Florida heritage and marine discovery. The lighthouse and
Seahorse Key are normally closed to the public in order to protect the bird rookery and allow study
by the' university students.
Visitors will enjoy touring the lighthouse, viewing the refuge island and the Gulf from the
lighthouse tower. The University of Florida Marine Lab staff will have displays and touch-tank
'exhibits for young and old alike. A boat is needed to reach this offshore island; visitors may use their
own boat or contact commercial boat rentals and group tours that leave from Cedar Key City Marina.
The lighthouse was originally built in 1854 to assist with navigation into the busy port of Cedar
'Key. Later, it was used as a detention center for captives during the Second Seminole War, then as a

Will it be our turn next?
Earlier this month, Islamic jihadists blew up subways and
buses in London. Shades of World War II and the "Blitz," which
brought what was then an advanced form of warfare, the V-2
rocket, raining death and destruction on that city almost nightly
throughout the final months of the war.
Perhaps some of the pundits and politicians who have been
frivolously comparing American efforts in the war on Terror to
Hitler and the Nazis could take note of the similarity between the
Islamofascists who bombed London in July of 2005 and the
Germans who bombed London in 1944-and quit giving aid and
comfort to our enemies through such gross distortions of the facts.
In a sense, the British invited the situation that led to what
happened earlier this month by allowing virtually unrestricted
immigration from Muslim countries. Of course, the same can be
said of other European countries, and our own failure to enforce
immigration laws is an ill-advised accommodation of whatever
malevolent forces might be plotting another terrorist attack here.
Figuring out why the terrorists hit London isn't difficult. Last
year, they hit Madrid just before the election, and that spooked
enough Spaniards that a liberal candidate won the presidency on
his promise to pull Spain's troops out of Iraq. No doubt, the
terrorists had a similar objective in mind when they hit London;
but if World War II is any example, they just might find that the
British are more resilient than other European nations. At this
point, at least, all indications are that the British are not about to
throw in the towel.
All of which is well and good, however it seems significant to
mention that, with the British Isles heavily infested with cabals of
Islamic loyalists, perhaps it's time the British government
reconsidered its failed policy of abolishing the right of citizens to
keep and bear arms. Right now in jolly old England, the ordinary,
tax-paying citizen can no longer even legally own a gun, and if he
happens to have one anyway and uses it to frighten off someone
who breaks into his home, he'd better hope the intruder doesn't
report him to the police. That policy has already produced a
-major increase in home-invasion robberies, and it invites the sort
of uprising that could come about whenever some Mullah tells his
faithful followers that it's time to kill the infidel.
One reason the Islamic terrorists might not be ready to strike
again in this country is that the American people aren't anywhere
near ready to quit, the efforts of Amnesty International, the New
York Times, CBS News et al, notwithstanding. After all, the
terrorists would find an unarmed populace upon which to prey
only in such isolated citadels of political correctness as New York
City and Washington, DC. Elsewhere, the "good old boys" (and
gals) with their 12 gauge shotguns and assorted other artillery
would make operating conditions unfavorable for hoodlums with
home made bombs and fantasies about paradise with 70-some-odd
virgins.
Of course, terrorists are unpredictable, and that's one of the
things that make them dangerous. That's why we need to keep our
powder dry, as the saying goes, and not let our guard down, even
if the chattering classes do find homeland security measures
inconvenient.

Letter to the Editor
Okay, I quit. I give up. I no longer want to play Dixie County
animal musical chairs up here on North Hwy. 349.
When our light poles were installed, the last crew left our
property and the same hour our female American Pit was nowhere
to be found. Now, per the "Dumbing Down of America," I'm not
saying they stole her, but, I'm of the old school, "If it looks like a
duck," etc. etc., it's a duck. She was born January 16th, 2004, is a
black brindle and white, has uncropped ears, and her name is
Maybelline.
On July 3rd, a vehicle pulled up to our property and stole our
American Pit male puppy, born January 12 2005, black brindle
and white, uncropped ears, and soft eyes. His name is Pinball. All
my animals are kept on high protein food.
Now, I have an objection. To you people who complain of
having a dog or cat dropped on your property, I feel for you, but I
can't relate. When I get dumped on, I get the whole starving,
wormy litter. Their health problems are everything but red mange.
What do you dumpers do, run out of dog food for a week, and then
drop them? These are not pretty puppies. I know, I've had the
following combinations of parentage; German Shepherd-Bassett,
Doberman-Dachshund, Wolfhound-Maltese, and a few that
probably could have been registered as Chinese Crested. I do very
well saving and finding homes for these puppies. The really ugly
ones I have to teach 3 or 4 tricks till some dummy thief steals them
but they are found homes.
This isn't an animal lot like a car lot. You think you can take
one of my personal dogs and drop me off 6-10 puppies that look
like they've been bred in a sci-fi dog laboratory. About the only
thing I haven't received is a St. Bernard-Chihuahua mix.
If anyone has seen my pits, I would like them back, no
questions asked. Also, if anyone has a Pekingese, a Pomeranian, a
Pug, a Boston Bull, or a Shar-Pei, please dump them'on me. In
fact, knock on my door and hand them to me. Even a white cat
would be nice. Just something for once that's pretty and healthy.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Barbara Stoner Old Town


Letter To The

Editor
Dear Gentlemen:
Are you able to assist me in
locating a former teacher and
basketball coach at Cross City
High School? This was in the
mid 30's and more than likely
she is now deceased.
My last address- for her was
on 12th Street in Ocala, FL. I
have not tried to contact her for
the past five years. She has a
son that either lives in Ocala or
not far from Ocala.
Thinking she may have
received your weekly
newspaper, I thought you
might know how to reach her
or her son.
Thanks,
Janice B. Teague.
hPS If any of our readers
have any information that
might help this lady, please
call us at (352) 498-3312 and
we will forward the
information'to her.
Letter To The

Editor
NO THANKS!
Praise should go to the
Dixie County Emergency and
Florida Division of Forestry
personnel for a job well done.
The "Firewise" program, yet
another example of the
dedication shown to safety by
these groups.
However, I think they are
barking up the wrong tree if
they think I am going to cut
my trees for their massive
rescue vehicles (DCA 6-30-05).
A community can be
defined by how it treats its
citizens and its trees.
Cross City has some lovely
tree lined streets, as does my
town, Old Town. It sure makes
it pleasant as I go about my
business.
One of my favorite roads to
Old Town Hwy. 19 North,
until last year, was a
wonderful, shady road, for a
major thoroughfare.
After the massive cuttings
of the nice palms and old oaks
for the new power poles on
Hwy. 19 it lost some of its
character as a real part of the
"old Florida". One of the very
reasons, I, and many others,
choose to live here.
My trees have been around
a long time and I plan on being
around a lot longer, as they are.
If there is an emergency and
I need salvation, I'll leave it to
the good Lord to make it
through the trees to my place,
or at least a smaller emergency
vehicle.
Respectfully
Patrick Mehr

Fox's Pizza Den -
By Terri Langford Staff Writer '
This past Monday, July 11th, 2005 Michael ..
and Janet Bright introduced Fox's Pizza Den to
Dixie residents opening their doors for the first -- "
time. With over 250 locations nationwide, Fox's
Pizza Den has already earned a reputation for
quality pizza and specialty sandwiches since -.
1971.
The Brights are from Macon, Georgia and
moved here six months ago, living near Janet's
D,ad in Old Town. "We were tired of working '
foQr other people," stated Michael; "and wanted to .-i;
go into business for ourselves." After checking ... .- ...,.,:-
into a number of businesses they decided to put .. -
their money into a Fox's Pizza Den franchise. -.: -. "
They already knew the product would sell itself "
and believe their investment is not only safe, but
will be profitable. Michael & Janet Bright
.Besides hand tossed pizza's, Fox's offers a
wide variety of sandwiches, from Stromboli and Hoagies to the one and only Wedgie. If salad is
your thing, they have those too. Try some of their Buffalo Wings which come hot, Italian and
Barbecue flavored. Their Bread Sticks come with a side of marinara sauce, with cheese or cinnamon
coated with icing- dipping sauce. Leave room for dessert! Their cheesecake is "to die for". Start
with the traditional cheesecake or get adventurous with a slice of Oreo, Butterfinger or Nestle
Crunch favored cheesecake.
Open 7 days a week, Monday-Thursday 10:30am 10:00pm, Friday & Saturday 10:30am -
11:00pm and Sunday 12:00pm-9:00pm, the Fox's crew is ready to serve. Delivery is available in
Cross City.
ILocated in the Dixie Plaza on US 19 in Cross City next to Badcock's & More, Dixie's newest
restaurant has great promise not only for its owners, but also for us die-hard pizza lovers.

Units 21 and 41 responded along with Law
Enforcement and the Red Cross. The fire spread
to the back of the singlewide mobile home and
into the roof. Fire fighters were able to get into
the roof and put out the blaze, that they
described being extremely hot!
;: While the shed and mobile home will have
to be replaced, the McCollums' were able to
save many of their personal effects.
A preliminary report from the State Fire
Marshall states that the fire was not deemed
suspicious. The exact cause of the fire is still
under investigation as it could be a number of
items that was stored in the shed.
This past Saturday, July 9th, while folks were
getting prepared for the coming of Hurricane
Dennis, the Herring family, on Hollis Chewning
Road, was battling a blaze that took their home.
According to JoAnn Herring, it was their
daughter who discovered the fire. She noticed

that her parents' bedroom door had become dark
and when she opened the door saw the TV had
caught fire.
The fire quickly spread up into the attic area
and began to work its way across the back of the
doublewide mobile home. When fire fighters
arrived they saw heavy smoke pouring out of
the roof vents. Adding to the dangerous
situation was ammo discharging from the rear of
the home. The roof had to be cut in order for
fire fighters to get water to the "hot spot".
Eventually the roof collapsed in the middle of
the home. There was light to moderate smoke
damage to the rest of the house. Hurricane
Dennis added to the water damage caused from
the fire fighters fighting the fire.
Both the Herrings and McCollum's had
insurance, which will replace a portion of their
loss.

Commission -


Highlights
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of .' -
County Commissioners met on
Thursday, July 7th at 10:00am
to conduct county business. The
agenda included several public
hearings concerning road
closures and zoning changes and monthly reports from department
heads.
The meeting began with Commissioners approving the closing
of a portion of Leon Street in Old Town. The petitioner, Edward
Sheppard/Anderson Columbia, Inc. agreed to trade-off with some
paving at Hinton Landing and Anderson Park since the taxpayers
had originally paid for the paving on the section of road which will
be closed.
The next item was concerning a zoning change in the Jena
community from Commercial General 'and Residential Single
family/mobile home to Planned Residential Development. Several
landowners that are adjacent to the property wanting the zoning
change were at the meeting. Also at the meeting were the
Developers, Trey Mitchell, III and Dewey Hatcher, Jr.
The concerns of the adjacent owners were privacy, where storm
water runoff will go and where the septic system will be located
for the 70-unit project. The Developers agreed to put a six-foot
fence around the property for privacy and they, along with the
Commissioners assured the homeowners that the septic and storm
water runoff would be sufficient and located in an area that would
not disturb their property. With that, the Commission approved the
zoning change.
The meeting continued with concerns from Suwannee residents
with the re-zoning of property across from the Suwannee Baptist
Church. A resident of Suwannee brought 11 letters and a petition
with 30 signatures on it, opposing the proposed zoning change.
The subject of new development has become an emotional
issue as of late and the 7th meeting proved to be just that at times.
Concerns from.citizens range from privacy, water & sewer issues,
parking, traffic, over whelming existing boat ramps and canals and
rising taxes.
Commissioners are looking at development as a venue in which
.to raise much needed revenue for the county in order to continue to
provide services for its residents and pay for state mandates.
While growth is not always a popular venue, it is one that can be
managed.
Recently the Senate passed several bills, #444 and #360, which
addresses many of the issues regarding development. State
guidelines now dictate that developers must show that water, sewer
and electricity service will be provided without jeopardizing
existing service before it can be occupied. The developers must
also meet County Land Development Regulations.
With continued .interest in Dixie County, this emotional issue is
sure to continue.
Ralph Tyre and Bob May came before the Board asking for
help putting in a culvert at the Veterans Memorial Park on US 19.
The Commissioners agreed to help to assist in the project in the
next several weeks.
FYI The June 2005 EMS report showed that 283 patients
were transported to area hospitals. Those units traveled 16,689
miles and consumed 2,107.513 gallons of fuel. Year to date over
2,346 Dixie residents required ambulance service. In addition to
those emergency calls, the EMS responded to 43 non-emergency
stretcher transport requests, 273 year to date.
The next County Commission Meeting will be held on
Thursday, July 21st at 6:00pm in the Commission Room. The
agenda for that meeting will appear in the Dixie County Advocate
in next week's issue.

Abundant Life & Living
In order to live life in abundance we must accept, love,
respect and be proud of who we are.
Before we can fully accept
others we have to accept ourselves.
Before we can fully love others we
n have to love and respect ourselves,
Swe must be proud of who we are.
Know we are great because God
made us and He doesn't make
junk. He made each one of us
originals. None of us are second
handed, we are all brand named
and brand new.
Look at yourself and say out
Lucille Stockton loud I am God's glory, I am
beautiful, "I AM SOMEBODY"
And I love me. Practice saying those words to yourself as often
as you feel like it, but say them at least two times daily. It will
boosts moral, raise self esteem and gives a delightful new
attitude.
Live a life of acceptance of God's beautiful diverse creation.
Accept all of the human race as O.K. Don't give space for
judgement and criticism. Most times when we meet a negative,
critical person that never see or say anything good about anyone,
they need prayer and a lot of love and self confidence.
Everything God made was good. Can't you see it everywhere.
"Love Life And Live It"

New Prospect Baptist News
Our Church Retreat on the Suwannee last week was a big
success, which included a three-night revival led by Bro. Bill
Jenkins, and camping for the week by many of our members. With
all reports in, a good time of Christian fellowship and fun was had
by all, with an average attendance of 100 or above each evening.
We've had several who accepted Christ as Savior recently and
were baptized. God has really blessed!
On Sunday, even though we were catching much rain and wind
from the outer bands of Hurricane Dennis, God enabled us to have
both morning and evening services. We thank Him that He once
again spared our community. He truly blesses us when we honor
His name and do His will.
We welcome you to pay us a visit at New Prospect
anytime; we're just a group of believers striving to do His will!
Have a good week, and be in prayer for everyone on the prayer
lists, our nation's leaders, and our folks in the military. May God
bless you and yours.

Faith Baptist Church News
We at Faith are forever grateful that God spared us from the
devastation of Dennis this weekend. Lots of our members were out
today and again this evening due to the storm, but in spite of that,
we still had a good number present and we are always thankful for
the ones who are there.
Bro. Jackie did his usual good job delivering God's messages
to us, and the special music was also great. We had several visitors
and we want them to know that we are always glad to have them
and they are a blessing to us. We pray that our people made you
feel welcome and loved and that you will come again soon. If you
are looking for a church home, you won't find one with more love
.and compassion than Faith. If you're just passing through, we pray
that you will visit us again
Wednesday night will be our regular monthly business
meeting. As a member at Faith, it is our duty to be there and help
take care of God's business.
We are proud to have a new little girl in our church family.
Rachel Vest gave birth today to her tiny little baby girl Sariassa,
weighting in at 1 lb. And 8 ozs.
The baby was 3 months premature, but arrived crying and
breathing on her own, and the doctor's say she has a 90% chance
of doing really well. Rachel is doing well also and we thank God
forf this. Congratulations also to "Granny Helen"!! (Couldn't
resist).
.We praise God for all His blessings and hope to see you in
church next Wednesday night and again on Sunday. Invite a friend
or neighbor to come with you. God will bless you for it. Until we
meet again, we will be praying for you and asking God to give you
a happy and healthy week.

Thank you.
The family of Mary Jo Sheets would like to send out our heart-
felt thanks. Thank you, to everybody who brought food and drinks,
who called or visited, who sent flowers and cards and especially
for remembering us in your prayers. Your kindness will never be
forgotten.
Thanks and God bless,
Gene Sheets, Brenda Gay and family, Jerry Sheets and family,
Sarah Bond and family, Martha Sheets and family, Susan Greene
and family and Rachel Jones and family...

Thank you
'A very special; thank you to our friends, family and church
families for the encouraging cards, visits, food and most of all your'
prayers over the past several months. We are thankful to the Lord'
for so many special people in our lives.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Iev21:3
"The Headship Ministry"
.Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord say when Moses
finally brought the Israelities to the foot of Mount Sinai and they pitched
their tents there, he then ascended up to the top to commune with God. For,
forty days and nights he sought and talked with God. The number forty is
symbolical of tribulation and trials. It rained forty days and nights during
the flood in.Noah's days. Jesus was tempted in the wilderness forty days
and nights, and the children of Israel wandered in circles in the wilderness
for forty years. So while Moses was on top of the mountain completely
hidden and covered from the eyes of men, the people gathered themselves
together to make them a god they could see and feel that would appeal to
their sensual nature. They said to Aaron, "Go, make us god's which shall
go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the
land of Egypt, we would not, What is become of him"Ex 32:1. I the Day
of the Lord, say Man is sensual. That is he is motivated by the five senses.
He must see feel, taste, hear and smell before he can accept anything. In


other words he cannot accept or believe without them. Without the five
senses man is "lost". He does not know where he is in God's timetable
that is why it is hard for him to fathom the existence of God or come to
realize that He is not a flesh and blood man. So they imagine or create a
picture within their minds of an old gray haired man sitting somewhere in
a far away place called heaven. We sometimes look down on heathen
races because they worship idols of wood and stone yet we are guilty of
making god into a creature like ourselves. God is sprit. It is a known fact
that every civilization since time began has had to worship something. I
the Day of the Lord, say From the earliest days archeologist have found
images made of stone and wood to represent a deity to man. Continued
next week,

In Loving

Memory
of


Dorothy E. Mills
September 16, 1932
July 14, 2004
A million times we've
needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could have
saved you,
You never would have died.

In life we Loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place
No one can ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you,
The day GOD
called you home.

Your precious memory is
our keepsake,
With which we'll never part.
GOD has you safely
in his keeping,
But we have you forever
in our hearts.

GOD oniy takes the very best.
Love... Roy,

Calvary
Temple News
It has been some time since
Calvary submitted a weekly
news article. Many have asked
the reason why? Basically, we
have chosen more of a "come
and see what God is doing"
approach. To update our
readers:-- the church is
growing, new families are
being added, there is a
wonderful spirit in the church,
Kid's Church is doing great,
our Pastor's books are' being
sent into the prisons, a new
prison ministry about to begin,
our tapes and C.D. messages
are going to Dixie, Lafayette,
Taylor, Gilchrist, Levy,
Alaska, New Mexico, plus
more. Plans are being made for
new construction. Our praise
and worship is wonderful. Old
friends are returning to
Calvary. We are prepared to
make Calvary a "fallout"
shelter in case of emergency.
We had three weddings in
July. Our finances are great
and the books are in order!
Some are being saved, others
are returning to their faith. In
summary! God is great and
greatly to be praised. His love
and mercy is from everlasting
to everlasting. There are times
that we march forward, and
there are times that we stand
still. The church belongs to the
Lord, we are merely
caretakers. Sometimes we
shout sometimes we weep.
Whatever good may be taking
place, it will always be
because of Jesus. No man can
take the credit for what God
does!
Calvary is made up of good
people who would love to have
you worship with us. We are
an imperfect church, made up
of imperfect people, who serve
a perfect God. Sunday
worship begins at 10:30.
Would love to have you join
us! Wed. night begins at 7:00.

STEIINATCHEE FISH111 REPORT
by Capt. Brian Smith
Create a New Fishing Hole
Ever feel that your fishing is getting
kind of humdrum? Your casting the same
spinnerbait to the same stump in the lake,
crawling the plastic worm over the same deep
grass bed, popping the cork and jig combo on
the same area
of the grass _, '
flat casting .
the gold spoon .
over the same ^ ,'
oyster bed, .' : :'1
trolling deep '"
plugs from
point A to ":
point B like "
you did last .,

anchoring on
the same piece
of hard .
b otto m .
;Anything can
get tiring done
over and over and over and you get the point.
Even fishing a variety of styles at the same
locations can become predictable so that it too
can push on boring.
This week weather forced me out of my
routine and I appreciated the push. High winds
and strong seas made running well offshore not
a wise choice. What to do? People. are
expecting a good time and some quality fish.
Easterly winds were blowing 15-20 knots
-. making the elephants dance more wildly the
further west one went. Ten miles off the coast,
in twenty five feet of water, I thought of Kelly
who was taking her first ride offshore. Under
those conditions it wasn't a great time to be a
'newbee' angler. I challenged myself to catch
grouper and kingfish inside of 40 feet. Throw
myself into the art of fishing in less than
perfect conditions.
We started trolling a mixed bag of plugs
which ran from 12 to 25 deep. I watched the
sonar as we rolled up and down along. Hard
bottom areas were marked on the GPS. Within
thirty minutes we caught a solid king fish, a
red grouper and a gag grouper. We had eased.
our way to a spot I had marked as a 'check out'
area while running in some time ago. A little
piece of hard bottom I thought might hold a
grouper or two, maybe a mess of black sea bass
or at least some grunts. The seas were rough,
some waves coming over the bow. It was Wild
Waters with a fishing twist. Any action would
be a blessing. A keeper red grouper, a mixed
bucket of pinks and blacks went in the cooler
while short grouper d a... couple of _puppy
sharks kept the action up. .
We were making a good day of fishing
while keeping insight of the tree line. If things
got worse it wouldn't be a long bounce to get
back to calmer waters. Safety, fun and fish is

the way I like to keep the order.
We trolled toward another spot I had
marked previously. Floating grass was too
thick to let the trolling plugs work. The plugs
grassed up in minutes. I switched to small
planners and spoons. The planner slowed
down the grass attack on the lures but didn't
work. After a half hour of aggravation raking
the Gulf, we
f o u n d
., .. ourselves on a
little untested
chunk of hard
bottom. We
let down our
baits. And
S'.n thing
S.. @ ':." happened! For
S" B .". five long
:p' minutes ...
.: Then some
unheard bell
rung and a
rowdy bunch
of 6-9 pound
S. red groupers
attacked
anything and everything we had on the bottom.
In a quick fifteen minutes we had our limit of
fine red groupers. If the National Marine
Fisheries Service had been on board they
would have changed their minds about cutting
back the bag limit on red grouper. That red
grouper rally was a day maker and a mind
changer for me.
You see, I could have bounced our butts
out to where I had been catching grouper and
such recently but I put safely first and tried
something different. That something different
opened up a whole new fishing hole for me. It
was fun catching the fish but the best part, for
me, was learning. I would have learned
something even if no fish were caught. Take a
day and fish outside your normal lines. Be
patient, don't give up easy, test your fishing
skills in unknown waters for good day on the
water.
Grouper fishing has been well in waters
between 40 to 55 feet deep. Trolling is
working, an excellent way to find new spots,
but bottom fishing is the best bet. Spanish
sardines and cut bait are consistent grouper
baits. Be sure and set a free line bait off the
stem to catch a king. 'Grill a kingfish steak
dipped in a half and half mixture of soy sauce
and butter to hush your mouth about kingfish
tasting too fishy.
Inshore guides are coming in with the
summer mixed bag. Trout, reds are in buckets
with blues, Spanish, and puppy sharks. Trout
are being taken on shallow water humps like
Little Bank in the'Iffiorhing and' on' deep grass
as the day warms up. Expect to encounter a
load of small sharks..
Thanks for taking the time to read.
Take care of yourself and the tackle!
Capt B
boating accident on Kingsley Lake involving a
skier and a swimmer. The operator of a vessel
pulling a skier failed to see several subjects
swimming in the lake. Once the swimmers
were noticed, the operator turned hard to the
left causing the skier to swing wide to the
right. The skier collided with one of the
swimmers, resulting in injuries to the
swimmer. The vessel operator was charged
with a Navigation Rule violation.
July 3, Cory investigated a boating accident
involving two PWCs on Kingsley Lake
resulting in injuries. Two 14-year-old girls
were operating separate PWCs. One of the
vessels stopped in the water and the second
continued. In the course of turning around, the
second vessel collided with the stopped vessel.
The operator of the stopped vessel was
transported to Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.
The accident is still under investigation.
COLUMBIA COUNTY
June 29, Officer Todd Hoyle received
information about a group of people spear
fishing on the Ichetucknee River. After a brief
surveillance of the area, Hoyle observed two
individuals swimming in the river and
observed each with a "Hawaiian Sling" type
spear. After wading out into waist-high water,
Hoyle apprehend the subjects and found them
to be in possession of three black bass and
several mullet, all showing signs of being
unlawfully taken. Notice to Appear citations
were issued for prohibited fishing devices on
fresh water and taking game fish by unlawful
method.
LEVY COUNTY
Dixie and Levy County officers assisted
Investigator Jay Russel in investigating a

into the Levy County Jail.


Lower

Suwannee

National

Wildlife Refuge

Closure

Announced
The Lower Suwannee
National Wildlife Refuge
announces emergency closures
in both the Levy and Dixie
county units as a result of
flooding.
Hurricane Dennis caused
flooding to all refuge roads and
damage to some fishing piers.
For public safety, Refuge
Manager Kathy Whaley closed
the flooded areas, "for as long
as it takes for the high waters
to-recede and the roads to be
repaired for safe travel."
The Dixie Mainline and the
Levy Loop Road, the main
wildlife drives of the Lower
Suwannee draw thousands of
wildlife observers, hunters and
anglers during the year. "This
action is merely to save our
visitors from the inconvenience
of getting stuck or something
worse," reports Ranger Pam
Darty. As the high waters
subside, repairs will be made
and the gates will be opened
again for visitor use.
Our mission is working
with others to conserve,
protect, and enhance fish,
wildlife, plants and their
habitat for the continuing
benefit of the American public.

Buddy Martin's
.Weekly Sports Commentary
Talented, but only a child
We all love phenoms, but the trouble is they
are getting younger every year.
First Tiger Woods, then LeBron James and
now Michelle Wie.
Michelle Wie appears to be a superstar in the
making, at least on
the LPGA Tour. So
'here we are
expecting a 15-year-
old girl to.possess
magical powers that
will allow her to
compete with a
Group of seasoned
V professionals men,
not women.
No question,
SMichelle's got game enough to play at the
highest level. But maybe not just yet. And
ma\ be not ever against the top male players.
She's tall with a fluid swing and a fierce
competitive spirit, but she is still a child. And
she's not ready to handle the pressure of big-
time golf against men.
: The photograph of young Michelle's face
,after missing a putt and failing to become the
first woman in 60 years to make the cut in a
',-pen's professional event was a portrait of
despair, framed in deep disappointment.
"Talk about overemphasis for a teenager and
putting too much pressure on a kid!
We all seemed to have forgotten that she's
not even old enough to have a driver license
yet.
S, My friend Sally Jenkins of the Washington
SPost. said it best in her column on Wie:
'" ... she seems all but impervious to
pressure, spearing shots straight into the
greens. It's only when she plays with her
bracelets, and fiddles with her earrings,
between shots that you remember she's just a
,girl."
The most remarkable thing is not that she
nearly became the first woman to qualify
against the men. It's that she nearly did it as
age 15.
Quick Jump Starts
1. The dropping of baseball and softball for
the 2012 Olympics was to this' country like
:'eliminating the Giant .Slalom from the Winter
_Games in Switzerland.
2. In the British Open this week I sort of like
Sergio Garcia, who hits more greens in
,regulation than any PGA Tour player these
da3 s.
3. Sorry, I just always like my ace to start the
game instead of ending it, which is why I
question the wisdom of the Red.Sox sending
'Curt Schilling to the bullpen as the closer.
4. Not sure why he's.never gotten the respect
maybe because of his aloof approach but
Manny Ramirez of the Red Sox is both a stellar
defensive outfielder and one of the game's best
hitters.
5. Turning Lance Armstrong loose in the
mountains is the equivalent of allowing Jeff
Gordon to run in .the Soap Box Derby, his
NASCAR Chevy.
This Just In: An early peek
The consensus of the major pre-season
football polls: 1. USC, 2. Texas, 3. Tennessee,


4. Oklahoma, 5. Michigan, 6. LSU, 7. Ohio
State, 8. Virginia, 9. Iowa, 10. Miami, 11.
Florida, 12. Florida State, 13. Louisville, 14.
Georgia, 15. Purdue, 16. Auburn, 17. Texas A&
M, 18. Boston College, 19. Pittsburgh, 20.
Boise State.
Short Stuff
Bobby Bowden's decision not to suspend star
linebacker Ernie Sims after his arrest for
domestic abuse means he'll play in the opener
against Miami an act that has raised some
eyebrows and hackles ... Ever so quietly,
Florida International was picked up by the
Gators for their 12th football game in 2009 ,,,
Bradenton Southeast two-way lineman Terron
Sanders became the third Southwest Florida
player, to orally commit to Florida last week,
following cornerback Markihe Anderson and
running back Chevon Walker, both of Fort
Myers.
Nothing But 'Net
(with help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Bumper sticker, sign or tee-shirt '
1. A flashlight is a case for holding dead
batteries.
2. Lottery: A tax on people who are bad at
math.
3. We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then
things get worse.
Buddy's Believe It Or Not
(but don't ask him to prove it)
1. Many years ago in England, pub
frequenters had a whistle baked into the Rim or
handle of their ceramic cups. When they
needed a refill, they used the whistle to get
some service. "Wet your whistle" is the phrase
inspired by this practice.
2.. In Scotland, a new game entitled
Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden was
invented, producing the acronym GOLF.
3. Intelligent people have more zinc and
copper in their hair.
Clipboard
The good news: It's Lyme disease
If it's possible to call a case of Lyme disease
a good thing, then the diagnosis of FSU
quarterback Wyatt Sexton was that. After that
terrible incident in which police found him in a
cul de sac wearing only a green pair of shorts
and claiming "I'm God," coaches and school
officials were dumbfounded about what caused
his breakdown. By all accounts, the son of
Seminoles running backs coach Bill Sexton
had been a model student and excellent
musician who was well-liked by friends.
Sexton will not be able to play in his senior
redshirt year, but FSU has applied to the
NCAA for a sixth year.
Today's Proverb
Timing has everything to do with the
outcome of a rain dance.
And good morning...
... to all our friends in Northwest Florida,
East Alabama and South Georgia who are
putting their lives back together after Hurricane
Dennis. Our prayers are with you.
Hear "Thursdays with Buddy" with Dan
Back and Scott Hayes on WAMR, Bradenton-
Sarasota- Venice, AM 1320. Buddy can also be
heard Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings
in Ocala-Gainesville on the Brady Ackerman

Never run a generator indoors or in a poorly ventilated area such as a
garage or porch, and use the appropriate-size power cords to carry the
electric load.
h Install a minimum of one batteiy-operated CO alarm (or AC-powered
alarm with battery backup) outside each sleeping area, and for
maximum protection install at least one CO alarm on each level of the
home.
Ensure that CO alarms have working batteries installed.
Never burn charcoal or other outdoor cooking appliances indoors or
in the garage.
Inspect and clean any soot and debris, such as bird nests and paper,
out of the chimneys, flues and stacks.
Carbon monoxide is difficult to detect without the help of CO
alarms. Outward physical symptoms of CO poisoning include
headaches, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting, symptoms that are
often confused with the common flu. That's why the Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends installing at
least one UL-listed CO alarm with an audible warning signal
near sleeping areas. UL-listed, battery-operated CO alarms are
available in most major retail and home-improvement stores.
For more than 25 years BRK Brands, Inc. has been the
manufacturer of First Alert-branded home-safety products
including smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, fire
extinguishers and escape ladders. Such products are also

products are found in more than 30 countries worldwide. BRK

My optimism, then, does
i, enot rest on the absence
T E Onlmi e of evil, but on a glad
belief in the preponder-
ance of good and a will-
ing effort always to coop-
te et rate with the good, that
it may prevail.

Safety Tips for Alternative Power
Use Can Help Prevent Tragedy
With Hurricane Season in full swing, communities in its path
are preparing for heavy rains and wind. As part of the
preparation process, individuals need to follow the proper safety
precautions in the event of a power outage, since several dangers
- including accidental carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning arise
when electricity is lost.
During power failures, many consumers turn to alternative
sources for electricity. Among these power sources are gas-
powered generators, gas grills, and wood and charcoal fires. As
with any fossil fuel-burning appliance, if used improperly or in
confined spaces, accidental CO poisoning can result.
"Carbon monoxide poisoning is a threat whenever gas-
powered appliances are being used or fossil fuels are burned,"
said Mark Colello, senior vice president and general manager,
BRK Brands, Inc., manufacturer of First Alert-branded home-
safety products. "But power outages during a hurricane present a
heightened risk because people tend to forget basic safety rules
when they're rushing to restore power, especially if they are
dealing with other aspects of a hurricane's aftermath."
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odorless and tasteless
by-product of the incomplete combustion of gas, oil, wood, coal
and other fuels. According to the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, CO poisoning claims more than 500 lives and
sends another 15,000 people to hospital emergency rooms for
treatment each year in the United States. In fact, more people die
each year through unintentional CO exposure than from any
other single poison, reports the Journal of the American Medical
Association.
The following safety tips will help families avoid CO and
other dangers associated with power outages:

Want to know if your
boyfriend is lying?
Here's how to tell, according to
Jan Hargrave, body-language
expert and author of "Freeway
of Love." This lead to some
great listener calls on "other
ways to tell if a guy is lyin'":
* The ear pull -- If he tugs on
his ear, it may be a
subconscious ploy to distract
you from the big, fat fib
coming out of his mouth.
* The arched eyebrow -- A
cocked brow sends a
.contradictory signal -- half
aggressive, half scared.
* The unmixed message -- He's
hiding something from you.
* The chin dip -- Right before
your man coughs up the story
of the century, he'll
sometimes lower his chin to
keep down the butterflies in
his stomach.
The shoulder shrug -- A
shoulder shrug feigns
bewilderment, as in "How
could she think I'd lie to
her?" But what he's really
thinking is: "How the heck
did she catch me?"
The hand rub -- If your man's
sweating buckets, his palms
will itch, forcing him to rub
them together or wipe them
on his pants.
The leg shift -- Shifting his
weight from one leg to the
other may indicate a shifty
response to your burning
question.
WILL YOUR HEART DO
YOU IN?
Maxim says that although
you're deathly afraid of clowns
and you're actually more likely
to die from heart disease. Find
your risk by adding or
subtracting these numbers from
47 -- That's the average percent

Rallying Cry
It was a result of their work with the Sanitary Commission in
1862 that Samuel and Julia were invited to Washington by
President Lincoln. They considered it an honor, even if they had
somewhat opposite views of what was happening in the country.
While in Washington, Sam and Julia made a short side visit to
a Union Army camp in Virginia, across the Potomac. There, they
heard the men singing a song. It was a song they bad heard
before, in another place farther to the south. It was the same
song, with nearly the. same words. But to the men singing the
song, each version had an entirely different meaning. A song
sung by both North and South: one in admiration of John Brown,
one in celebration of his death. "John Brown's body lies a-
moldering in his grave."
And this song had meaning to Sam and Julia too, for both Sam
and Julia's feelings were well known on the matter of the war -
and both were hard set in their ways. But one more thing was
happening. Sam had been giving financial aid to one side of the
war effort. The problem was that the money he was giving was
not his, but Julia's. It was money from an inheritance from
Julia's family. And to her horror, he was giving her money to the.
side she opposed. That galled her to no end.
But in 1862, at least where Sam and Julia lived, in a legal
marriage the man had the right to do as he chose with money. It
was at a time when the war was not going well for the North. A
clergyman friend named James Clarke, who knew of Julia's
published poems, urged her to write a new song for the war effort
to replace "John Brown's Body" something inspirational,
something that the troops could sing and brace up their spirits in
the face of recent defeats.
Julia decided that she would do just that. She later said that"
she went to bed and slept as usual, but awoke the next morning in,.
the gray of the early dawn, and to her astonishment found that the
new song that Reverend Clarke wanted was arranging itself in her"
brain. She quickly searched for an old sheet of paper and a stub-
of a pencil and began to scrawl the lines almost without looking.
One thing was clear to Julia: she had a way to tell the world
that she 'did not feel the same way about the war and slavery as;
her husband did. It was in her poem. In her mind, it said it all.:
She later wrote of this experience: "Having completed this poem,;.
I lay down again and fell asleep, but not before feeling that
something of importance had happened to me." Oh, if Julia ever,
knew but she didn't!
The poem was published first in February 1862, in the,
"Atlantic Monthly." She was paid $5. That poem was quickly.
set to the music of "John Brown's Body" and became the rallying;:
cry of the Northern soldiers. It has since become one of our'
nation's most cherished and honored songs.
And although most every American knows Julia's little $5,
poem they don't know the Little Known Fact that it was Julial
Howe's own protest of her husband spending her inheritance'
without her consent, on a cause she disapproved of, that prompted"-
the words we all sing so proudly. And you might want -to
remember that the next time you sing her song, "The Battle Hymn
of the Republic."

ATTENTION PARENTS!!!
Don't Forget The Dress Code for DCHS
Back to school shopping? But it's only July! Parents, since
students return to school on Friday, August 5, it's not too early to
begin that back to school shopping! As you do, please remember
the Dixie County High School Dress Code so that your youth can
wear those new outfits without ending up in the office! You may
want to take advantage of the sales tax holiday July 23 through
July 31.
The dress code of DCHS has been the same for several years.
We ask that students come to school in acceptable attire for
educational purposes with proper attention having been given to
personal cleanliness and neatness of dress.
Clothing that is revealing or "see through" is not acceptable for
school. Short shorts, bare midriff shirts, halter-tops, beachwear,
pajamas, nightgowns, spaghetti straps etc. are not appropriate.
Short dresses, or shirts that extend past fingertip length when
the hands are held at the side are appropriate. Jeans, dungarees,
slacks, are also appropriate and should be worn with a belt at the
natural waistline.
Any attire that illustrates, enhances or depicts tobacco, alcohol,
drugs, or is offensive, obscene, violent, racial, satanic, or gang
related is prohibited. Sexually suggestive clothing is not
appropriate at school. Underwear should be worn under outer
clothing and should not be seen.
Neither caps nor hats are allowed on campus before 3:30 pm
each day so please do not bring them to school. Parents, you can
save your money, as these are not needed! Shoes do need to be
worn at all times and bedroom slippers are not appropriate at
school. We suggest comfortable shoes as students at DCHS get
their exercise walking from one class to another!
In the interest of safety, no student shall wear any earrings or
other jewelry that pierces the skin that is visible outside of the
clothing of the student with the exception of earrings in the ear. No
tongue rings, eyebrow or nose piercings are to be worn to school
for safety reasons. Any chains being used for any purpose for
which it was not intended, capable of harming another is not to be
worn at school. This includes those worn on pants and wallets.
Students will want to dress for comfort and dress appropriately
for the activities that are occurring at school. If you are active in
FBLA, there will be days you will want to dress for success. If you
are in JROTC, uniform day is usually on Wednesday. We
encourage students to support our teams with our school colors of
Red and White or T-shirts that support our BEARS!

Thanks to Ann Chewning, Pat
Baum, Warren Emenecker, Erin
Carolyn, Marvin Perry, auctioneer,
and his wife; we did what we set
out to do and that was to sell
merchandise. There is enough
funding available to carry our
programs through November.
We are planning our annual
auction for November. If we raise
a sizeable amount of revenue from
this event, we will start another
program. The project would assist -
in some financial assistance for
low-income families who have a
medical emergency concerning
their pets. In order for this to -
happen, we are asking for your
help in a big way.
Last year it was suggested that
we should have a combination
auction and the thought of an
antique, collectible /new and used
sale came to mind. Armed with
ideas and information we
proceeded to get to work. Some
donated items so far are old"
beautiful costume je,.. elr,,
Italy and France glassware, linen,
Disney and Loony Tune items,
silver, and silver-plated articles.
In June we sent out letters to
businesses asking for auction
items. If your business would like
to donate an'appropriate article for
this occasion please contact us. It
is a tax deduction.
Please don't throw your empty
ink cartridges away we need
them! In a few short weeks we
will be asking you to deposit them
in a box provided for that purpose.
We will let you know where the
boxes will be located. The empty
cartridges to save are
HP,LEX,COMPAQ, and
CANNON.

Happy Anniversary!


David & Donna Anthony
Who could believe it, David, time flies that is clear
It's seems we were married yesterday and now
it's wow one year!
Our 1st Anniversary is upon us.
Good God it sure is great.
I'm thinking now of our first adventure, our first date.
We set out to have dinner and maybe catch a show -
It was considered a "Cheap Date" cause the bill was so low.
But you on the other hand, as cute as you could be, watching the
clock so patiently, but little did I know telling time just
wasn't your cup of tea.
Proposing as you did it, down on one knee touched
My heart so deep.
Who would ever have known that David Ross Anthony
has a heart so sweet.
So many were against us, with negative thoughts and timely bets,
but with our trust in God we've succeeded with no regrets.
How did this miracle happen that we're so very blessed.
So close and more content than I ever would have guessed.
We're facing life together; we're handling joy and sorrow.
I'm glad you're on my side what ever comes tomorrow.
Life is seldom easy, so much makes it hard.
From kids, to bills to ex's, Boy have we been dealt some cards.
You're my perfect partner, wonderful lover, trusted friend.
We're safe within our love, a love that will never end.
So on this day we mark our love.
I'll shed some joyful tears, and say "Thank you God for this
wonderful gift from above,"
And I'll look forward to many more years.
Happy Anniversary
I Love You Donna

Boost Your Brain Power
(NAPS)-Some may think
it's an old wives' tale, but
research shows that foods
can tremendously boost brain
performance, memory and
even mood!
For example, a healthy dose
of lean meat or eggs is a great
source of essential protein.
Equally important are omega-
3 fatty acids found in salmon
or tuna. In fact, according to
experts at the Franklin
Institute, a nationally
respected pioneer in the devel-
opment of interactive science
exhibits and research, fats
build your brain while pro-
teins unite it.
If you're not preparing your
own food, don't worry. Many
restaurants have brain-boost-
ing menu items you can
choose from. For example,
IHOP recently launched a
new menu with over a dozen
new items, many of which
contain food for your
thought-from spinach sal-
ads with powerful antioxi-
dants that maintain healthy
brain cells to fish and eggs
that build the brain.
For more information or to
review the new menu items,
log on to www.ihop.com.

Dixie County Sigh tings
-From first glance at this week's Dixie Sighting, you might think it a
came from Hawaii, however the pineapple plant shown below is just ..
one of a small grove that is growing at the home of Ulysses and Sally -
Corbin. 6
The pineapple is from a family of small shrubs native to the
American tropics and subtropics. The fruit, whose spiny skin is
yellowish brown when ripe, is sweet and juicy and can be grown
throughout warmer regions, ergo, Florida. ,
The pineapple is native to Central and South America. It wasn't
until the late '1700s that Hawaii saw its first pineapple and later f
becoming the fruit's leading producer. Its first commercial plantation
was established in 1886.
The pineapple has been used to symbolize hospitality and can often
be seen in carved decorations. Its name comes from the resemblance to the pinecone.
Pineapples have a .source of vitamins A and C. They contain an enzyme, which digest food by


/ I
/


breaking down protein, making its juice an ideal tenderizer for meat marinades. The flesh is best
eaten by itself.
The tops of the pineapple are where its seeds are produced. These tops can be cut offinctd
planted and with the right care, produce another appetizing fruit. The Corbin's must have grKen
thumbs as they have been able to produce quit a few of the tasty plants.
