By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Some residents and
businesses in Cross City
experienced a brief power
outage, some up to twenty
minutes; last Thursday, July
14th, after a local woman hit a
power pole at the intersection
of SE 351 Hwy and SE 259
Street.
According to a report filed
by Officer David Forehand of
the Cross City Police
Department, Janis W. Bowers,


35, of Cross City was headed
north on SE 351 when she
veered off the roadway just as
she approached the curve
where 351 intersects with SE
259th Street, hitting a power
pole. The pole was sheared off
at it's base and landed on the
roof of Bowers' car. '
Both SE 259th Street and
SE 351 Hwy were closed off
until Progress Energy crews
arrived to replace the pole and


live lines that cross over the
roadway.
EMS Rescue 1 transported
Bowers, who was injured in
the accident, to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville.
Damage to Bowers' 1989
Olds was estimated at
$3,000.00 while damage to the
power pole and lines were
estimated at $2,000.00.
No charges will be filed in
this case.


Earlier this year the Florida Fish and Wildlife-
Conservation Commission (FWC) voted, to
expand statewide, a registration program for
deer-dog hunting on private lands for the 2005-
06 hunting season. The decision was based on
the overall success of a pilot program adopted
last hunting season in the Northwest Region in-
lieu of more restrictive measures.
According to a report presented by Lt. Col.
Mike Wiwi, deputy director of the Division of
Law Enforcement, the additional time and costs
associated with administering this program
across the state will be minimal and manageable
for current FWC staff and budget.
Wiwi said 70 individual properties,
representing 55 deer-dog hunt clubs, participated
in the pilot program. Those properties ranged
from 40 to 31,000 acres and were situated in 14
of the 16 counties within the Northwest Region.
With ,the pilot program in place, complaints
dropped 27 percent, compared to the average of
the previous four hunting seasons. More
importantly, only five complaints were
associated with registered deer-dog hunting
clubs. In comparison, a review of last season's
complaint data for the North Central and
Northeast regions, where registration was not
required, showed an increase in deer-dog hunting
complaints from the average of the previous four
hunting seasons. See "DEER DOG," cont pg 5

Steinhatchee Man Fatally

Injured In Tragic Accident
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Carlie Jackson Boyington, 75 of Steinhatchee, Florida was
fatally injured this past Saturday, July 16th during an accident two
miles north of Chiefland, at the intersection of US 19 and NW
135th Lane.
According to a report filed by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Boyington was traveling southbound on US 19 when he failed to
notice a car in front of him turning onto NW 135th Lane. In an
attempt to avoid hitting the car, Boyington ran off the roadway
onto the shoulder, striking a culvert and becoming airborne. When
the SUV landed it overturned approximately three times, ejecting
Boyington.
Levy County EMS was on the scene and helped transfer
Boyington onto ShandsCair who transported him to Shands at UF

Boyington was a lifelong resident of Dixie County and worked
in the construction business. He was a veteran of the United States
Army. Services for Mr. Boyington were held Wednesday, July

Things better left unsaid (or undone)
Rev. Billy Graham is a man who has truly devoted his life to
serving the Lord, and he has richly deserved the admiration he
has acquired over the decades that he has spread the Word to
4 millions of people throughout the world.
Rev. Graham recently appeared at what will quite likely be his
last crusade, upon which occasion he was visited by former Presi-
dent Bill Clinton and his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton,
, who appeared with him at the podium. Nothing unusual about
4 that; Billy Graham has been personal friends with several
presidents, and has shown no partiality based on political party,
leaving politics to those who ply the trade.
However, I was a bit taken aback to hear him tell Bill that he
1 should become an evangelist. Not that Bill Clinton lacks the
| ability to persuade audiences, however the world is going to be
needing another Billy Graham, not another Elmer Gantry.
As for telling Hillary that she should be left to run the country,
I certainly hope that remark merely reflects the Rev. Graham's
, sense of humor.
With Sandra Day O'Connor having announced her retirement
from the Supreme Court, there has been much speculation as to
who President Bush might name to replace her. The partisan food
! fight that is likely to result in the U.S. Senate could get real ugly.
A lot of people are making suggestions, including First Lady
Laura Bush, who used a recent appearance on NBC's "Today"
show to let us know that she would "really like for him [the
president] to name another woman."
Sandra Day O'Connor was the first woman appointed to the
High Court, largely because President Ronald Reagan had let it be
know that he would at least seriously consider naming a woman to
that post, and pressure from GOP patriarch Barry Goldwater. Her
recent well-taken dissent in the controversial Kelo v. New London
(abuse of eminent domain) case notwithstanding, O'Connor has
often been a disappointment to constitutional conservatives such
as Reagan and those who elected him. If a woman should prove to
be the best choice for the job, that's fine. But O'Connor wasn't,
and this is hardly the time for another gender-based nomination.
On the other hand, maybe President Bush should appoint a
woman to replace O'Connor. How about Phyllis Schlafly? She has
the credentials, and is at least as well-qualified as was the late
Earl Warren.
If you've been watching TV lately, you've no doubt seen
promos for "Wedding Crashers," an R-rated film soon to be
released in theatres everywhere. In addition to the usual rundown
of Hollywood glitterati, Arizona Senator John McCain will be
making an appearance.
That's right, the same Senator McCain who not so long ago
held hearings for the purpose of criticizing the Hollywood studios
for grinding out R-rated films aimed at teen-agers. Frankly, I
don't care what movies Senator McCain patronizes, I think that's
his business. But when he makes a big show out of knocking the
movie industry for its R-rated flicks, then takes a part in one,
that's another matter.
In other words, the movie role isn't that big a deal, in and of
itself. It's a comedy, and I expect something of a spoof on the
nonchalance with which today's society regards marriage. But the
senator probably would have been well-advised to pass up the role,
considering his prior criticism of the industry.
There is no way I would drive to Gainesville, pay ten dollars
for a ticket and five more for a box of popcorn, just to watch John
McCain in the movies. However I'm curious enough that I might
rent the flick, once it gets to a local video store. (Short drive, two
bucks, and I make better popcorn than they do at the theatres
anyway.)
What bothers me is that I understand there's some nudity. Not
Jhat I'm a prude, I just hope the senator had the decency to keep
his clothes on, regardless of whoever else didn't.

Letter to the Editor
I would like to recognize. the Perry Optimist Club for their
continued support and significant contribution for literacy at
Steinhatchee School. With their assistance it is now possible for
our students to use technology to enhance and sustain their
learning to read. The software we purchased is high in educational
content, yet interesting enough to motivate students to want to
read. The result will be that every child will achieve success,
develop academic self-confidence and thus no child will be left
behind.
Reading is the most powerful skill a child can learn. The Perry
Optimist Club continues to assist and influence the reading success
of Steinhatchee School and for that our students and staff thank
you!
Sincerely,
Kathy Jester

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!

With one condo already up and running, the
council is looking at long-term implications
with growth in their small community.
Currently there are 230 permanent residents in
Horseshoe with several developments already
on the horizon. The Council will be taking a
serious and in-depth look at just what will be
needed to continue to provide services to all
their residents, permanent and part-time. Impact
fees will most likely be the first venue in which
revenue will be collected. The Council will also
be looking to the Dixie County Commission for
help. "We look forward to having a good
working relationship with the County
Commission," stated Bennett. "Working
together we can make a difference," he added.
For several years the Council has actively
pursued funding for the Town's roadways,
which are in need of repaving. They vow to

At the conclusion of the
2004-05 hunting season, the
FWC conducted a survey of all
participants of the pilot
program to determine levels of
satisfaction associated with
registration requirements and
to identify any concerns with
the program or process.
Almost half the participants
responded, and. all said the
process of completing the
application, registering and
complying with the new
requirements was easy or very
easy. Nearly 90 percent said
they experienced no problems
with affixing their assigned
identification numbers to their
dogs' collars, and almost 70

active.
The largest project on the Council's agenda
at present is the water and sewer issue. Having
already secured the services of an engineer,
Darabi & Associates, all that is needed now is a
grant to help pay for the project. Easier said
than done, the Council is hard pressed to get this
project up and running and has hopes of hearing
something in the near future.
One long-range project that the Council is
looking at is getting grant money for the
construction of a beach. Plans show that the
beach area would begin at the point and
continue towards the county park. The addition
of a beach would certainly bring a "family
friendly" atmosphere as well as bring the
"beach" to Horseshoe Beach, as it's name
implies.
The Horseshoe Town Council meets the first
Thursday of every month beginning at 6:00 pm
at the Town Hall. The public is invited and
encouraged to be a voice for their community.
We wish the new Horseshoe Beach Town
Council all the best and congratulations for their
unopposed victory.

percent thought the new
registration was a valuable tool
for helping manage deer-dog
hunting on private lands.
During May, the FWC
conducted six public meetings
across the state to make certain
hunters and other interested
groups:
were fully aware of
the proposal for statewide
registration,
had the opportunity to
ask questions to better
understand the specifics of the
proposal, and
could provide
comments.
These meetings helped
clarify some common

misunderstandings about the
proposal and fostered broader
support from hunters and other
stakeholders, Wiwi said.
This new statewide
registration program will
require no-cost registration for
anyone using dogs to hunt or
pursue deer on private lands in
Florida during the deer-dog
training season and during any
open deer-hunting season
when taking deer with dogs is
permitted.

The Boyd Report
"Good Manners at Home...and
in Congress"
By Congressman Allen Boyd
"Mind your manners" is a phrase I often heard
my mother say as she raised my two siblings
and me. We were aware at a very young age
that fighting
with each
.other-even the
slightest bit of
Sbickering-
I would not go
unpunished.
At the time, I
took her
teachings for
granted, but as
I got older, I
Cong. Allen Boyd realized the
wisdom of her words and advice. Nowadays,
this same sort of squabbling that I did as a
child seems to be commonplace among adults
in policy and political discussions. Every time
I turn on the television, I see program hosts,
analysts and politicians arguing back and forth
about different issues. While I can relate to
their passion over these important matters, I
think many have forgotten how to hold a civil,
healthy debate without personally attacking
others. Flashy performances seem to have
overshadowed making intelligent and honest
points, and this is not helpful as we try to solve
the challenges facing our nation.
At a time when our country is deeply divided
along party lines, it is important to keep the
rhetoric civil and try to cooperate with one
another. I think most Americans are
disappointed with the behavior they are seeing
out of Republicans and Democrats alike. The
American people deserve politicians who will
spend their time working for them, not
working against each other. For this reason, I
recently joined the Center Aisle Caucus-
commonly branded the Civility Caucus-to help
improve relations among my colleagues on
both sides of the aisle, encourage healthy and
constructive debate on the House floor, and
promote bipartisanship in Congress.
The Center Aisle Caucus, formed by
Representatives Tim Johnson (R-IL) and Steve
Israel (D-NY), is a bipartisan group of House
members committed to working cooperatively
to achieve a civil climate for conducting our
nation's business. More than 40 of my
colleagues from both parties have joined this

graduate, having just passed her Boards in April
:'ofthis year, Cole stated that she is excited about
being here in Dixie County and looks forward to
finding out more- about the community as a

Cole attended Kettering College of Medical
Arts in Ohio before moving to Tampa, Florida.
It was in Tampa where she met her fiance,
Ruben. Currently working for the United States
Government, Rubin served in the US Air Force
for four years before signing up for the USAF
Reserves. The. couple will be residing in the
Old Town area. No exact date has been set for

group, all with the ultimate goal of working
together in a more positive and productive
manner.
Congress was intended to be a branch of
government that stimulates discussion and
where compromise is possible, but partisanship
stands as a hindrance to this purpose.
Disagreements between Democrats and
Republicans will always exist, and there are
many issues on which neither party may ever -
agree. While understanding there will always
be disagreements on either side of the aisle,
substantive discussion should be possible and
even encouraged among our leaders who must
set an example for the American public.
Conducting debate in a reasonable way and
reducing partisanship are both important
objectives adopted by the Center Aisle Caucus
to improve the atmosphere and effectiveness of
Congress. Instead of looking for ways to
disagree, we must search for ways to agree and
use this as a foundation for our policy
discussions. The Center Aisle Caucus will also
push for rule changes to allow more unscripted
debate on the House floor in order to support
members' differing philosophies and engage in
a more civil and well-rounded discussion.
Working for our constituents and the greater
good of the country must always be our first
priority. As government leaders, we should
support ideas based on merits, not whether an
idea stemmed from the Republican or
Democratic camp. The Center Aisle Caucus is
founded on these beliefs and the certainty that
a more civil environment in Washington will
result in a more productive one as well. I will
continue to stand my ground on core issues
that are important to my constituents in North
Florida, but I will do so without personally
attacking my colleagues. At the same time, I
do not think it is farfetched or naive to believe
.that there are many issues on which
Republicans and Democrats can work together
so that the nation will benefit.
Members of the Center Aisle Caucus share a
steadfast and overarching interest in making
government work for the people, and it is this
belief that led me to join this important group.
It is my hope that in the coming months we are
able to help improve the atmosphere in
Washington so that it is more conducive to
legislative progress instead of a haven for
political rhetoric. Policy disagreements are par
for the course, but it is time for government
leaders to respect each other's opinions, which
in turn will be good for democracy and the
American people.


their needs," Cole stated. She also hopes to hold
educational workshops on Diabetes, a disease
that affects many local residents. "I want to be
able to reach out spiritually to people in the
community as well," she added. A member of
the 7th Day Adventist Church, Cole's Christian
values is one that is very important' to her. She
believes that you should not only take care of
the body, but the mind and spirit as well.
Cole's enthusiasm is apparent, as well as her
kind spirit and gentle manner with her patients.
"The staff here has been very welcoming," Cole
noted. "I couldn't be happier." When asked
how she liked the country life she said, "I love
it."

Abundant Life & Living
St. John 10:10 (kjv) Jesus said He came that we might have life
and have it more abundantly embrace life with enthusiasm. It
makes the journey so exciting.
Jesus paid the ransom bought us
from under bondage of sin and
.' death. We are not slaves to the
transgression of Adam in the
S' Garden of Eden. Who Christ set
I free is free indeed. We are sons and
daughters the children of God. The
human family is the only species
that have freedom of choice.
When a human being become an
adult He/She can choose to live
Lucille Stockton right or choose to live wrong. We
become victims of our decisions or
actions. If we choose to do wrong we suffer the consequences. If
we choose to live right we reap the benefits. So we don't have
any excuses
Everybody is in charge of their own spiritual journey. So
don't get upset if someone don't live up to your expectations.
You. are not responsible for no-one but yourself. It is an
individual Journey. So place your own silver in the refiners fire,
keep refining it until you see Your self, and no one else, when
it's polished, then you are pure Silver.
"Love Life And Live It"

New Prospect Baptist News
Sunday, it was a privilege to assemble ourselves in God's
name, to study his Word in Sunday School and, after that, to hear It
proclaimed in the morning service. Our choir did its usual fine job,
and we were treated to a couple of special songs by Bro. Danny
Riels, who sang and accompanied himself on the piano, doing an
excellent job. Bro. Billy then brought a thought-provoking and

people. Faith just continues to thrive and God continues to bless
us.
We had visitors again today and we want to acknowledge them
and tell them what a blessing they are to us. If you're looking for a
church home, we invite you to share ours and if you're just passing
through, we invite you back really soon.
Bro. Jackie did his usual wonderful job in the pulpit today and
the special music was good also. If you missed either service, you
truly missed a blessing. We urge you to come out next week for
ALL the services. Sunday School at 9:45 AM on Sunday, Morning
Worship service at 11:00 and evening services at 6:00PM. Then

Thank you
It has been almost 4 weeks since our children, Duane and Jamie
Lord, were in a four-wheeler accident. First and foremost we
would like to say a huge Thank You to the Lord above for sparing
us our two boys. We know that he could have just as easily taken
them from us. In addition, we want to say thank you to all of our
friends and family for their support during this time. The prayers,
visits, phone calls, cards, gifts, etc. were greatly appreciated. We
know that we could not have made it through this difficult time
without all of the prayers and support. We would like to say a
special thank you to Marie & Ronnie Hunt, Donna & James Hurley
for taking care of Jamie and Timber during the week that Duane
was in the hospital. Again Thank You to everyone.
Sincerely,
Tim and Diane Lord

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"The Hardship Ministry"
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say when
Moses disappeared for forty days and nights the people became
worried. They wanted a leader they could see. But when he
vanished and they lost sight of him they looked to another resource
for leadership. They had to have something they could see in order
to survive the wilderness experience. They turned to Aaron ,
Moses' brother to make them a god (or leader) that they could see
and identified with "And Aaron said unto them, break off the
golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, of your son,
and of your daughters, and bring them unto me Ex 32:2. I the Day
of the Lord say do you think people have really changed any since
those days? People are still sensual and need to have something
they can see in order to believe. They still need a leader that will
lead them on into greater truth. They have never learned to hear
God for themselves. The day of looking to one man is over with.
God is teaching us that we must wholly depend upon Him for
guidance, I the Day of the Lord, say Behold, the tabernacle of God
is with men, "Revelation 21:3 We need to stand on our own two
feet and walk by ourselves. How quickly they had forgotten' the
mighty works, which God had performed for them! What
happened to all the rejoicing and dancing that took place on the
share of the Red Sea? They had come out of Egypt, but Egypt was
still in their hearts. They had left the land of bondage but they were
in bondage to their passions and lusts. The golden calf was made to
be worshipped and exalted and they sat down to eat and drink and
rose up to play. Twenty-three thousand committed fornication that
day. Their desires had become rampant. Nearly every person has a
golden calf. To some its money. They idolize and worship it.
People have misquoted 1st Timothy 6:10. They have said money is
the root of all-evil. That is wrong. The love of money is the root of
all-evil. I the Day of the Lord, say Do you know what God is
making many of us do? He is destroying our golden calf that we
have created and relied on and we have to drink it. God's fire will
melt it down and then it will be reduced to power and each of us
will have to taste of it. What is your golden calf? Continued next
week

-The Word Made Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
I the son of man, say man after
deith comes into the spiritual
world, which for the most part
takes place the third day after he
has expired, he appears to himself
in a.life similar to that in which he
had been in the world, and in a
similar house, in a similar coat and
clothing. I the son of man, say If
he v was a King or a prince he
appears in a similar palace, if a
peasant in a similar cottage. This
happens to everyone after death to
the end that death may not appear
as -death, but as a continuation of
lif,: and that the last of natural life
may become the first of spiritual
life, and that from this a man may
progress to his goal, which will be
either in heaven or in hell. I the
son' of man, say that such a
similarity of all things appears to
the recently, deceased is because
their minds remains the same as it
was in the world; and because the
mind in not only in the head, but
also in the whole body, therefore a
man has a similar body; for the
body is the organ of the mind, and
in 'continued from the head. I the
sont of man, say thesis the man
hiniself, but then no longer a
material man, but a spiritual man;
and: because he is the same man
after death, there are given to him
things similar to those which he
had possessed at home in the
world, according to the idea of his
mind: but this last only some days,
that the mind is in the whole body,
and, is the very man who lives
afier death. I the son of man, say
The erroneous belief that man
lives after death a soul or mind,
andi this not under the appearance
of, a man, to under the appearance
of ,a breath, as it were, of
respiration, or as a bubble as it
were, of air, is because men do not
know that the mind makes the
interior form of the whole body, I
the son of man, say man is like a
tree, which first grows up a seed
into a shoot, and when it increases
in height puts forth branches and
from these stems, and clothes,
itself continually with leaves: and
when it comes to maturity, which
takes place in its middle ages, put
forth flowers, and produces fruits:
in each one -it places seeds, which
being cast into the earth as into a
womb, grow up into similar trees
and thus into a garden. I the son of
man say and if you are willing to
believe it that same garden
remains with the man after death:
he dwells in it and is delighted.
Loye you, continued next week

STEINHATCIIEE FISHING REPORT
by Capt. Brian Smith
Heat
Wednesday I looked down
at my legs and water was running
off them like I had just got out of a
pool. My skin was leaking profusely.
There was no breeze and no cloud
shade. It was hot. That blast of
heat you feel when you get
French fries out of the oven hot.
There hasn't been an anti-
perspirant developed that could
handle what my body was putting out. I was a
sprinkler. Looking around at rest on board, if
we positioned ourselves strategically we could
irrigate a lawn.
I carried a bottle of water around all
day long and encouraged everyone to do the
same. I soaked my head in water and wiped
with a wet towel to get some evaporative
cooling. I didn't want to dance with the 'heat
monkey'.
I hear "It's hot!" all the time. Well,
you're standing outside, in the sun, on a boat
that is on water, in Florida during summer
time. As Bill Enbol on Blue Comedy would
say "Here's your sign".
Heat problems can go from just getting
more water to getting medical attention in a
hurry. Most people are conditioned to being
air conditioned. A day out in the sun sounds
like' fun for those who spend most of their time
in an office or other indoor air conditioned
environment but it can be shocking.


Lake Santa Fe

Boating

Accident

Injures Teen
A teen was injured
Saturday in a boating accident
at Lake Santa Fe in Alachua
County, according to Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officials.
Kate Forsmark and Jeffrey
Morris, both 13 and both
residents of Gainesville, were
being towed on inner tubes
behind a boat operated by
Theodore Brad Bums, 29, of
Orlando.
According to FWC officers,
the inner tubes hit a wake,
knocking both teens off their
tubes. The two collided,
hitting their heads.
Morris .as transported to
Shands Hospital %\ith non-life
threatening injures. Forsmark
did noi require medical
attention.
FWC officers investigating
the accident found that the
vessel operator did not violate
any rules or laws.
Water skiing, tubing and
other aquaplaning activities are
exciting and challenging
sports. However, like all "fast


Here are some quick tips to keeping
your cool:
Bring at least a gallon of water per person.
Gator Aids and such are great, also. Soft
drinks contain water but aren't water. Beer
contains water but is anti-water because, you
know, it makes you pee, and you can
watch the water, you vitally need, squirt
out of the body YOU really want it in.
Wear breathable loose fitting clothes.
Don't let the kids wear black. That
fashion statement is best left in the mall
where being cool isn't such a life or
death situation.
Bring a cheap ice pack in the cooler and a
good towel. An ice pack on the back of the
neck and head at noon is a good thing.
Wear a straw hat. Wow,, keeping your head
in the shade all day, what a great idea. Look at
old photos... great grand dad and mom had
that figured out well before some 'Sun Doctor'
professed that in the media.
Take breaks. Fishing, or any other fun
activity, isn't a marathon. Chill out and get
something to drink. Take time to remind so-
and-so that they missed that fish an hour ago.
Joy ride! Splash yourself with water and go
for a ten minute spin around the Gulf. Did you,
know in the still mid-day heat of a summer an
outboard motor can generate a 20 knot plus sea
breeze! No kidding.
Swim. Flop off the boat and swim for a
minute. Only do this if you can swim. Or plan
to scallop during the heat of the day. Anchor in
waist deep water for the non-swimmers.
Heat issues are serious. It is best to avoid
problems.


action" sports, they do possess
an element of risk. Many
boaters and aquaplaning
enthusiasts are not aware of the
potential hazards. More

Forest Land Recovery Program

Enrollment To Be Held

July 22-October 21
TALLAHASSEE, FL The Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, Division of Forestry announces that it will
hold a sign-up for enrollment in the Forest Land Recovery
Program (FLRP) from July 22 through October 21.
This program, authorized under the 2005 Military Construction
Appropriations and Emergency Hurricane Supplemental
Appropriations Act, is available to non-industrial private forest
landowners on a 75-25 cost share basis. Eligible practices include,
but are not limited to: site preparation; tree planting, and debris
removal activities. Landowners who own at least 10 acres but no
more that 5,000 acres of land in Florida and who have a practice
plan will be eligible to receive funding assistance under FLRP. The
land can be with or without forest cover. If the acreage does not
have forest cover, it must be due to the 2004 hurricane season. A
maximum of $25,000 will be available for each qualifying
landowner as reimbursement for incurred expenses for approved
practices. A total of $6,000,000.00 will be available to forest
landowners statewide.
Almost half of the state's 14 million acres of forestland is
owned by private non-industrial forest landowners. After the
hurricane season of 2004, many of these landowners are in need of
financial assistance to help restore their forestlands.
Landowners can obtain application forms from their local
Division of Forestry office and from other cooperating agencies.
The Division of Forestry's foresters will provide technical
assistance to landowners and will be the local contact person for
participating landowners. For more information, contact Adam
Parden, Taylor/Dixie Co. Forester, at (850) 838-2286 or visit
www.fl-dof.com.

Buddy-Martin 's
Weekly Sports Commentary
Letting go of a legend
* Actually, most of us hate long goodbyes. And
this one had been going on for an eternity. We
'didn't want to let go of this American icon,
however, and he didn't want to leave less the
gracefully or
without a little
drama.
So we played on
until the final scene
was acte,.d out on
aFriday. Probably for
h e the final time in
golfing history,
o aTiger Woods got
upstaged briefly in
the British Open
that day.
This day belonged to The Golden Bear and
TNT had the good sense to switch away from
Woods' assault on St. Andrews to capture all
-,the drama of a legend writing the final chapter
of his remarkable competitive story. It was
'Worth every tear we invested.
Deep down he knew there was going to be no
Saturday and Sunday in St. Andrews, but we
let him pretend there was actually a chance he
could make the cut. Couldn't a man of so many
t ihiracles have one left in his bag?
Well, no, but in turn he rewarded us with
what he called "my best round of the year,"
dropping in a birdie putt at the 18th to finish
with a respectable par 72. No embarrassment in
`that.
Most likely this is my last column on a man
About whom I've written an estimated 100 over
!nearly 40 years. I once nearly quit my job and
ient on the road to follow him for a year and
write a book. In some ways I will always regret
.that I didn't.
; In retrospect, however, it was presumptuous
jof me to think I would ever have been capable
'.of such a massive challenge, because the
Specter of this man is just too huge to capture
,on the printed page. It would have been like
trying to catch the genie and put him back in
'the lantern.
There will never, never be another guy like
Shim in sports, let alone golf.
s I'll always remember arguing with two
young golf writers over a Wednesda) night
'dinner plate in Augusta, Ga.
-,: ;They suggested back in 1986 that the "old
'giiys" were done and now were a figment of
; 6ir imagination -- that the legends of the game
.-should go into moth balls. I told one of them I
:was ~ iling to beat him that The Bear could
:still %%in and would prove it by winning
qtiother major some day. I got hooted down.
:"'.On Sunday after the '86 Masters after,
indeed, The Old Guy had become the eldest
player to win the Masters, I remember that one
young writer from Sports Illustrated sitting
behind me in the press center, laboring over his
computer on deadline, muttering, "This is just
TOO BIG ... just TOO BIG!"
In a way, that writer was correct.
Friday in perhaps the grandest sendoff I've
ever seen for a professional athlete, all of Great
Britain bowed to honor him.
The Royal & Ancient even granted stoppage
of play and allowed photos to be made on the
Swilcan Bridge before play ended at No. 18.
Earlier, players from other fairways had
stopped, come over, removed their caps, and
shaken his hand.


All of Scotland proffered respect befitting of
royalty and, in fact, the Bank of Scotland even
printed a five pound note with his picture on it.
This is why one British announcer always
called him "The Great Man."
As evidence of his greatness, I have written
my final column on Jack Nicklaus without
mentioning his name until now and yet you
knew from the start who it was.
Quick Jump Starts
1. What does this tell you about the
popularity of Michelle Wie: Last week while
she was competing in the U.S. Publinx
tournament, the USGA Web Site received 10
million hits!
2. Another school is in trouble with the
NCAA and, once again, former South Carolina
coach Lou Holtz wants you to know he had
nothing to do with it.
3. Don't you wish we could all feel better
about Rafael Palmeira's 3,000 hits?
4. Roy Williams got Kansas in trouble with
the NCAA for giving players gifts wasn't he
the guy who implied Florida's Billy Donovan
was "dirty" after the Gators stole Mike Miller
away from the Jayhawks?
5. In that first Lou Harris Poll on college
football, he should allow 5 percent as
"undecided."
Short Stuff
Remember the names Xavier Lee and Drew
Weatherford, because one of them will be
taking snaps from the Seminoles' center when
FSU plays against Miami ... Given that Stan
Van Gundy has gone 101-63 during the regular
season and took Miami to the conference finals
this past season, on what basis would Pat Riley
take over as Heat coach?
Nothing But 'Net
(with help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Bumper sticker, sign or tee-shirt
1. I'm going to survive if it kills me!
2. Caution: Blonde thinking.
3. Your kid's an honor student. You're a
moron.
Clipboard
Quiz for perspective
Lou Harris pollsters
Take the test to see if you qualify to vote in
the Harris poll.
True or false:
? Alabama's basketball coach makes more
than its football coach.
? All pregame meals for SEC teams are eaten
at Cracker Barrel.
? Ohio State's band not only dots the "i" in
Ohio at halftime, but also crosses both t's.
? Phil Fulmer has an endorsement contract
with Krispy Kreme.
Multiple choice:
? The (noses, throats, ears, eyes) of
Texas are upon you.
Answers: True, maybe, undecided, probably
and take your pick.

- I m, A. -1-, .
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past week the nine-member Guard
Squad for the Dixie County High School
Marching Bears Band met for Summer Camp.
For four days these young ladies learned
routines and moves they will use at this years
band performances.
This year's "squad" comes from Ruth Rains
Middle School and Dixie County High and
promises to be entertaining as they interpret the
music played by the Bears Band. Filled with


enthusiasm, these young ladies worked hard
during the camp and are ready to "face the
music", so to speak.
Director Jamie Garrett stated that she is
encouraged by the early show -of spirit from the
squad and hopes everyone takes the opportunity
to attend the football games this year to hear the
Marching Bears and see our Bear Guard Squad
in action.
GO BEARS!

Lots of excitement and anticipation filled the air as softball returned to Dixie County after several years
absence with the Mayor's Softball Tournament. Action kicked off Friday night with Southland's of
Newberry taking on the Hill-Cobb Insurance team from Horseshoe.
Local teams started the action early Saturday morning with the Smurf's (Rex Beckham) defeating Barry's
(Barry Buchanan). After a long, hot morning, only three teams remained in the double elimination round.
The Chillie-Willies (Charlie Watson) finished in third place after falling to the Redbirds from Perry. The
victory by the Redbirds set-up a rematch against the Smurfs who had defeated the Redbirds earlier in the
day.
The Redbirds avenged their only loss by defeating the Smurfs twice to win the tournament.
John thomas led all players with seven homeruns while brother Mike could only muster six.
Thanks to all the teams and players for participating and support the Mayor's Tournament and DCHS

Availa


Linked to
Generator Use
Hurricane Dennis caused less
damage than expected. However, since
the storm passed, three people are dead
and the most likely cause is portable
generators. Two people in the Pensacola
Bay area were suspected of being killed
by carbon monoxide poisoning from the
improper placement of their portable
generator. Carbon monoxide poisoning
is what kills the most people with
portable generator use.
The third death was a lineman'
from Pike Electric Inc, of Mount Airy,
N.C., who was working to restore power
near Flomaton, Ala. Police investigators
and Alabama Power's linemen suspect
that the man's death was caused by a
portable generator being improperly used.
Connecting a generator directly
into the main power supply of a house
can cause "backfeeding" onto power lines.
Essentially, the generator can kill the very
people there to restore power which
would eliminate the need for the
generator.
If you are one of the thousands of
people that purchased a generator this year
in preparation for hurricane season, make
sure you have read the instruction manual
from cover to cover. Do not place the
generator inside your home, in your
garage, near air intakes, windows or
doorways. Do not wire the generator
directly into your breaker box, but instead
plug appliances into the generator as
instructed in the usage manual.

generator safety, go to the

Founder of ActivaB


-.-.- .-----. --- ---. ---.-... .. ........ ... . ........ ........ ........... ........... ........... ........... ..--..,--.-----. -.--
Mocked Play Writer
Tom had such hopes for this class at Washington University. ,
The professor was excellent, well liked by the students and Tom. -
The class itself was a literal hive of activity and social connection.,
When it was announced that a play writing contest would be held ,
and the winner decided by a jury of their peers, the class was,
excited.
Tom spent quite a bit of time working on his play, and really:
believed that he had something that people would relate to. After,
all, it was a reflection of what and how he was feeling. Even if the,
setting was different and the characters somewhat abstract. To say
that Tom was something of a brooding personality would be .
accurate. He always wore dark clothing and seemed to have few .
friends. As he later said, he felt like he really didn't fit in very.
well. And I guess he didn't. Today we know some of the intimate
details of Tom's life: the years in the mental institutions, and the,.
fact that he was gay and this long before it was accepted by much
of society.
But one bright spot in his life was his English course at the,
university. Tom believed this was his chance. His chance to puti
down his thoughts, his feelings, his frustrations, and yes, his hopes..
He wrote -a dark drama, a story about Russians, full of war and,
infidelity and murder. Some would call it heavy handed. Others, I
think, would have called it depressing. But it was how the young
man felt in his isolated world, even in the midst of all the youthful
enthusiasm of a university. The professor, as he always did, chose
several selections to read to the class. Tom's was one of them.
As the professor read, to his shock and horror, the students,
laughed. They laughed at the undeveloped characters. They:
laughed at the poor dialog. They laughed at the almost nonexistent;
plot. Tom was humiliated. Yes, the play was bad very bad. But ,
they laughed at his work, his ideas. His life, laughed at! The
humiliation was more than he could stand; he quietly rose from his- ,
chair, and walked out not just out of the class, but out of the
university too. He never went back. He made a pact with himself'
that day one that, fortunately for us, he didn't keep.
You see, It's a Little Known Fact that the author of that horrible
Russian melodrama, which got him laughed right out of
Washington University, also wrote a few more plays later in hig
life, when he found he had more yet to say. Plays like "A Streetcar
Named Desire," "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," and "Glass Menagerie"
are a few you know of that were written by the man who swore
he'd never write another word. And years later, he even?
completely forgot the university experience. It was blocked fromi
his memory by the humiliating laughter of his fellow college
students. But Tennessee Williams did write again, and how he'
wrote! If you're ever in that situation, remember the college boy,
who was laughed out of school, and try again.

SFCC Veterans
Rally Round
The Flag
When the Florida
Legislature passed the Carey
Baker Freedom Flag Act in
2004 requiring*Florida schools
to display U.S. flags in every
classroom by August 1, 2005,
the Santa Fe Community
College Collegiate Veterans.
Society (CVS) rallied round
the flag project.
The law mandated that the
flags measure 2 feet by 3 feet,
be American made and be paid
for by private funds. SFCC
President Jackson Sasser asked
the college veterans to raise
the money.
"We thought it was a great
idea and we wanted to help the
college," said CVS President
Jeremy Clements, a Marine
Corps veteran.
It was originally estimated
that Santa Fe would need 240
flags to furnish every
classroom on its campus and
all five centers. That number
grew when the college decided
to put flags in instructional.
labs as well.
In the end, the Collegiate
Veterans Society bought 300
flags and metal wall brackets
for Santa Fe. Almost $1400
was donated by college
students, faculty and staff.
Additional funding came from
the Alachua County Veterans
Memorial Committee which
helped the county's schools
meet the state mandate.
"The SFCC Collegiate
Veterans Society is very proud
of this initiative and President
Sasser's trust in the society to
raise the needed funding," said
Santa Fe Veterans Advocate
John Gebhardt. Gebhardt
attended college on the GI Bill
after serving in the Armny and
is now advisor to other
veterans completing their
education the same way.
Now that they have led
Santa Fe to meet the flag
deadline, the veterans are
focused on another fund-
raising project. They have thus
far raised, $6,000 of $20,000
needed for two brigade size
(20 feet by 30 feet) U.S. flags
and a 92-foot flag pole.
Clements said that two
flags are needed because of
wear and tear--one flag is
flown while the other is being
mended. The flag is to be
lighted and flown 24 hours a
day on the Interstate 75, or
west, side of the campus.
"This is to honor all
veterans," said Clements.
"There are lots of memorials
for combat veterans, but this
flag would honor all those who
serve, including those in the
future."
There's lots of people in
this world who spend so
much time watching their
health that they haven't
the time to enjoy it.
--Josh Billings


We love you very much. Thank you for being wonderful parents.
Love, Marinda & Andrew

S Congratulations...From Dixie One Stop
'.- a- -~m.~~ WNWv -


This week's Dixie Sighting comes by way of Horseshoe Beach
residents, Tina Brotherton and Katherine Hutchinson. These two
ladies had the pleasure of sharing a horticultural milestone... the
blooming of two Century Plants. Tina and Katherine were both
excited about their plants blooming, and surprised to find out that
they each had plants blooming at the same time!
The Century Plant (Agave) will reach maturity in 10 to 50
years (not 100 years as its name implies). When it begins to get
ready to bloom it will shoot up a thick stem from the middle of the
plant. That shoot grows 2 inches a day, reaching higher than a
telephone pole and has beautiful yellow blooms.
In the top picture shown below, Tina's plant shows just how
high the flower gets. Kathrine's picture was taken a day too late,
before the wind caught her plant and bent it over. Of course
Hurricane Dennis finished both of these plants off.


Dixie One Stop would like to congratulate P & E Painting, pictured left, for winning the Giant fireworks
package and Lil' Raymond Brown, pictured right, for winning the "Almost" Giant runner-up package in the
4th of July Raffle! Everyone reported a fun and safe time with their prizes.

After blooming, the plant dies, but the stem top, which falls to
the ground, will grow new plants. So don't despair ladies.. .more
plants to come.
Century Plants are common to the dessert, making them ideal
for'dune plants along coastline areas, such as Horseshoe Beach.
Their roots are dense and just below the surface so they can absorb
rain easier.
For Native Americans in the southwest, the century plant was
'er important to their diet, providing food all year. The starchy
heart has a hot fla% or and gets as big as a cabbage. The flower can
be eaten ra"\ as well as the stalk. Juice from the stalk, called aqua
-miel can be distilled into mescal or tequila, Mexican for "to-kill-
ya". (Bet .\ou ladies didn't know that!)

American Legion Post 91 Member

Receives DOF of Year Award


Breast Cancer

Awareness
Since May, many Post Offices in North
Florida have posted "Circles of Hope"
honoring those who help "fund the fight and
find a cure" for Breast Cancer. '
Those who purchased booklets of 20
Breast Cancer semi-postal stamps, were ,
invited to sign their name, or the name of a
loved one, on a "Circle of Hope" which was
displayed in the Post Office lobby. "I'm glad to say we have
circles of hope almost everywhere you look," said the Postal
Service's top executive for North Florida, Harold L. Swinton.
"Every circle is a reminder that, in spite of everything else they've
got going on, people still care and want to help. We are all
impressed by the response and the researchers are, I'm sure,
grateful."
The eight-cents difference between the sale price of the Breast
Cancer semi-postal and the First-Class one-ounce letter rate helps
fund federally-supervised Breast Cancer research. Since it's release
July 29, 1998, the Breast Cancer Semi-postal stamp has generated
more than $45 million for research from the sale of 606.8 million
stamps.
The stamps. can be used like any other First-Class postage
stamp. In addition to benefiting research, using the Breast Cancer
semi-postal on cards and letters can help raise awareness of the
disease and may inspire more Americans to acquire the skills and
habits they need to stay healthy. It is estimated that 40,410 women
and 460 men will die from Breast Cancer in the United States this


year.
