Dixie Accidents
By Terri Langford
On Sunday, August 7th the Cross City Police responded to
an accident on CR 351 at the home of Clark and Marjorie
Hardman. According to a report filed by Officer Forehand,
Nimmi Vinod Patel, 19 of Cross City, was traveling north when
she ran off the road in order to avoid hitting a small animal.
Instead she hit a newspaper box, re-entered the highway then
swerved off onto the east side of the road, hitting several small
trees in the Hardman's yard before coming to a stop.
Patel was charged with careless driving.
Also on Sunday, August 7th, law enforcement was called to
the scene of an accident on US 19, at the Fanning Spring bridge
on the Dixie side.

Highlights


By Terri Langford Staff Writer

Online End of August
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Mike Gantt, E-911 Division Chief went before the Board of County Commissioners last week to
announce the approaching installation of the new 911 System on the 22nd of August. Gantt noted
that the new system will be a huge improvement, providing valuable information to emergency
crews.
The new system will now provide the caller's phone number, 911 address and what emergency
services stations are the closest to the caller.
Dispatchers out at the County Jail will begin their training once it has been installed and the system
is slated to be online by August 31st.

response.

Above is a copy of the form that has been sent out countywide for the new residents to fill out in. order for the
E-911 Division to be incorporated into the new 911 System.
The biggest hurdle the E-911 Division has had, has been lack of response from the public in

explaining the importance of reporting their correct Name, Phone Number, 911 House Number,
Street Driveway is off of and Parcel Number (located on your property tax form). It takes only a few
minutes to fill out and you can either return it by mail at 56NE 210th Ave., Cross City, Florida 32628
or fax it to (352) 498-1244.
In addition all residents should be displaying their 911 address clearly. All buildings, residential
and non- residential, 50 feet or less from the road should place the numbers on the front of the
Structure. All buildings, residential and non- residential, greater than 50 feet from the roadway need,
to place the numbers on a separate structure (such as a mailbox, wall, fence, directory, etc.) It should
be clearly visible and legible from the public or private roadway on which access is provided to the
property. Street address numerals should be a standard block type (Arabic) made of contrasting
colors to the back ground or reflective material of contrasting color to the background.
RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURES: Four (4) inches in height and one half (/2) inch in width. NON
RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURES AND USES: Seven (7) inches in height and one half (1/2) inches
in width.
Emergency Services Director Chad Reed noted that even if you are a part time resident, it is
imperative that you get this information to the E-911 Division. The Dixie Emergency Services and
Commission have put a lot of effort and money in to assuring the best care for its residents.
PLEASE, help then be able to help you...fill out your form and send it in as soon as possible.
In addition to the E-911 System, Dixie's Supervisor of Elections, Mae Beville recently sent out
911 address confirmation cards. The Supervisor's Office needs you to confirm the address and
precinct number. Any changes should be returned to the Supervisor's Office no later than the end of
November 2005.

No apologies for Hiroshima ,/ ,
It was Monday, August 6, 1945. A B-29" "Supertorrress
bomber piloted by Colonel Paul W. Tibbets, Jr., headed for Japan
with one bomb aboard. Only one other such bomb had ever been
detonated, that a short time earlier in a remote region of the
Arizona desert, the culmination of an intense research project
which established that atomic energy could be unleashed as a
weapon of mass destruction.
The bomb even had a name. "Little Boy." Actually sounds
kind of cute, only it carried an impact equivalent to 40 million
pounds of TNT and it destroyed 60 percent of the Japanese city of
Hiroshima. Three days later a similar device was dropped on
Nagasaki. Less than a month after that, Japan surrendered,
bringing an end to World War II.
2 Ten years later, I was assigned to the 8205th Army Unit at
Camp Kokura, Japan. While I was there, Ilearned that Kokura
City was the initially intended target for the second bomb, but
tlat weather conditions necessitated that it be moved to Nagasaki.
This brought on a renewed interest in the events that had ended
the war and were, to some extent, still shaping the world at that
time.
I had opportunities to talk with a lot of American servicemen
Swho had fought in the Pacific theatre during World War II, and
also a number of Japanese civilians and even some who had been
in the military. They were of one mind when it came to the matter
of how costly to both sides a conventional invasion of the Japanese
mainland would have been. You can forget the babblings of
contemporary pacifists, because despite the fact that Japan was
losing the war, surrender was not considered an option. It took the
deLastation of two A-bombs to convince them that defeat was
inevitable. "
SThe two atomic blasts resulted in a total of approximately
100,000 deaths in the two targeted cities, with probably at least
that many more dying as a result of injury and radiation
poisoning. There was no doubt on either side that Japan's civilian
casualties would have reached at least a million in a conventional
S invasion, and our military casualties would undoubtedly have at
least approached that figure.
Putting that in perspective, the casualty figures from
Hiroshima and Nagasaki don't seem inappropriate, particularly
when you consider that the losses were incurred entirely by thd
enemy--a fact that might not seem important to today's liberal
establishment, but it was certainly significant to the American
Public in 1945. .
The invasion was scheduled to be launched at Kyushu, Japan's
southernmost island. Like most of the country, it is mountainous
and would have been extraordinarily rough going for an infantry
attack. Old Town resident "Big Sam" Lindsey, the voice of
WLQH radio in the 1970s and 80s, was a young soldier assigned
to participate in the attack. He told me that. while he was ready
and willing to do his job, he was not exactly what you could call
"disappointed" that the A-bomb beat him to it.


Today's arrogantly naIve pacifists are quick to opine that
Japan was ready to surrender even before the'A-bombs hit their
real estate. In fact, they were prepared to fight to the bitter end
ajnd kill as many of the invading Americans as they could in the
process. It is highly unlikely that the invasion could have
succeeded in less than a year, and it might have taken a lot longer
than that.
We lost a lot of military personnel in World War II., More than
4,p0,000. But we inflicted far more severe losses on the enem.
That's the way wars are won. and the only way. I might add. Wars
are not exercises in public relations-a fact that seems to have
been missing in our military strategy over the past 60 years.

Precious Cargo
Parents, grandparents, Baby-sitters and whoever you are. Do you
realize how precious the cargo is that you casually toss into your
vehicle? Obvious some of you do not. Just stand in front of Evans
Square, one would see what I'm talking about. The other day a van
pulled up to park. Out jumps the female adult, leaving a three-year
old sitting in the passenger seat (not buckled up) holding an infant
in his arms. The back seat had a couple of 4 or 5 year-olds (not
buckled up).
The adult,instructed the children to stay put while she went into
the store. Mind you it was mid-afternoon and more than 90
degrees outside. The windows were down- indicating the. Vehicle
had no A.C. I do not know how long she was in the store, because
I left shortly thereafter. I know I should have remained, but if I did,
I would have had words with the female driver and that would be
trouble.
By no means is this an isolated incident. I see this kind of thing
everywhere I go.- What can you do? How do you make these
people understand how important it is to have all children safely
restrained while riding in a vehicle. Children depend on you (the
adults) to keep them safe and sound. So please think about this
next time you load up your precious cargo and keep them safe,.

Letter To The Editor
This is in response to the letter written by Arnold Hall
which appeared in the July 28 edition of the Advocate. I am the
teacher at the Dixie Adult Education Center in Old Town. The
Dixie District Schools was not involved in the Tri-County GED
Graduation Ceremony held on June 23, 2005.
We hold a wonderful graduation ceremony for our GED
graduates every spring. It is held at the Dixie County High School
Auditorium. We shared the ceremonies with the Cross City
branch of Lake City Community College until they dropped their
local GED preparation program; An invitation to the graduation
ceremony always appears in the Advocate so the public is
informed and encouraged to attend.
The ceremony is one that honors the graduates for their
accomplishments. Prior to the ceremony Fred Sabback and his
sweet wife take photos of the individuals and also takes group
pictures. The group picture always appears in the Advocate. The
Adult Center Staff also take digital pictures of the graduates and
prints them for them. Pastor Howie Grimmeriga speaks about his
own mother's achievement of a GED and offers words of praise to
the graduates, as well as giving the Invocation and closing
Benediction.
This year Howie was finishing a course so his, lovely wife,
Nancy, filled in for him. Mr. Bennett, our Superintendent, is one of
the speakers who praises their achievements and encourages them
to pursue their future endeavors.. Dolphus Peppers, Assistant
Principal at DCHS, recites inspirational poems and tells of his
own educational history of attending the school "across the
tracks". Jim Bray and Anne Engers, District Administrative staff
assists in handing out the diplomas and giving the
Investiture. Tom Thornton does a marvelous job of playing the
piano. June Wood always allows us to borrow peace lilies to
decorate the stage.
After the ceremony, while the graduates are standing on the
stage for picture taking by family and friends, I ask each individual
to say a word about what their diploma means to them. This gives
them the opportunity to speak about their own experiences in
achieving their goals. Then, we all go to the cafeteria where the
graduates, their family and friends, the administrators, staff, etc. all
enjoy snacks, soda, and a beautifully decorated cake.
Funds for the refreshments are donated by Muriel Oblinger, the
Adult Center volunteer, and Precision Development Life Time
Homes. So, in stating all of this, I think that the Dixie District
Schools puts on a fabulous ceremony for our GED graduates and
everybody should know it now!
Very sincerely,
'Kathy B. Haas

Letter To The

Editor
While I was out of the
county back in May, 2005,
someone put a note on my gate
telling me what I had to do in
90 days, or else.
The note was turned over
the the Sheriff and they are
checking it out for prints and
handwriting.
A SUV was seen by a
neighbor parked in my drive
way. I think you know who
you are.
The 90 days are up, so
come fourth and do your thing,
I'll be at the jail August 13th,
2:00 P.M. 2005. I don't forget
either.

M 8 Rules for 5afet.,
Before I go anywhere, I always
check first with my parents or the
person in charge. I tell them where
I am going, how I will get there, who
will be going with me,'and when I'll
be back.
-I check first for permission from
my parents before getting into a car
or leaving with anyone even
someone I know. I check first be-
fore changing plans or accepting
money, gifts, or drugs without my
parents' knowledge.
3 It is safer for me to be with other
i people when going places or play-
ing outside, I always use the
"buddy-system."
4 I say NO if someone tries to touch
me in ways that make me feel fright-
ened, uncomfortable, or confused.
Then I go and tell a grown-up I trust
what happened.
C I know it is not my fault if some-
one touches me in a way that is not
O.K. I don't have to keep secrets
about those touches.
6 I trust my feelings and talk to
grown-ups about problems that are
too big for me to handle on my own.
A lot of people care about me and
will listen and believe me. I am not
alone.

It is never too late to ask for help.
I can keep asking until I get the help
I need.
1 am a special person, and I deserve
to feel safe. My rules are:
CHECK FIRST.
USE THE "BUDDY SYSTEM."
SAY NO, THEN GO AND TELL.
LISTEN TO MY FEELINGS, AND
TALK WITH GROWN-UPS I
TRUST ABOUT MY PROBLEMS
AND CONCERNS.

in half. He then continued into the wooded area of the shoulder,
finally stopping when he hit a tree.
Lopez was treated at the scene by Dixie EMS and refused
treatment. He was transported to the Dixie County Jail by Cross
City Officer Danny Forehand where he was booked on DUI
charges. Lopez was also charged with Driving With No
Licence.

with Helmstetter behind Hillard. Rita Ferrer, of Old Town,
allegedly ran the stop light at the intersection, causing Hillard to
hit the left back panel on the drivers' side and then Helmstetter
hitting the rear of Hillard's car.
The pile-up caused congestion on-SR 349 which was cleared
off the roadway once the injured were taken care of. Both
Hillard and Ferrer were transported to hospitals in Gainesville.

Behold the Tabernacle of God
Rev 21:3
"A New Leadership Ministry"
Continued from last.week. I the Day of the Lord, say Perhaps some of
you are saying within your hearts that you thought the five-fold ministry
was to perfect the saints. But God did not give these ministries to the
whole body. Am I making light of these Ministries? God forbid! I am
merely showing you that they are limited in their capacity. I the Day of the
Lord, say if an evangelist has a ministry of deliverance and you are
delivered or set free he has brought you as far as he has come. When a
teacher teaches you all they know that is as far as.they can take you. What
are we to do then? Stop and not grow anymore? "And he gave some,
apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and
teachers; for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for
the edifying of the body of Christ; till we all, come in the unity of the faith,
and of the knowledge of the son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the
measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ."Eph 4:11-13. I the Day of
the Lord, say I repeat again God did not give the five-fold ministry to all
but some. If you do not understand what you are reading it is then best to
lay it aside and there will come a day when you will need it. I the Day of
, the Lord, say all of us should keep an open mind. For our God is revealing
new things unto us and this New Day is becoming brighter as we walk in
it. As time permits perhaps we will be able to bring more of this truth out
as the Lord, speaks Yes a new leadership ministry is coming on the scene!
The sons of God are birthitr, a Neu Day..The Headship ministry is
corrung tdrth declanng and manifesting the thing the world has'been
groaning and traveling for For the earnest expectation of the creature
waitqth or the manifestation of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19). I the Day
of the Lord say Oppression, pressure and much tribulation is necessary.
For these things will bring forth the Headship Ministry. When Jesus was
telling his disciples about the hardships they were going to have to endure,
He said, "All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matt 24:8) I the Day of
the Lord, say that word "sorrows" literally means birth pangs. So if this
Headship Company is to come forth all these tribulations will be but birth
pangs. Continued next week

Abundant Life & Living
Revelation 21: 1-2 ( KJV ) of the Holy Bible States, John saw
a new Heaven and Earth all things are made new. We are now in
the creation. Modem technology,
makes living so easy and
enjoyable. It's a whole new way of
living life, also a new way of
thinking, one cannot live abundant
life under the traditions of their
four fathers; the reality of God is
right now and we can be rewarded
right now, we don't have to look
beyond the sun moon and stars for
reward after death. Each new day
brings new horizons in the law of
l Life and living, because life is
Lucille Stockton perpetual Infinite and everlasting.
God centered within ones self gives spiritual wisdom. God
created all the human family for his glory. And all He created
was good, and very good. It is not limited, whosoever will let
them come drink of the fountain of life freely. Abundant living is
God in expression of plenty.
He owns the wealth of this vast universe, and Jesus gave
enough grace and truth to go around to all of God's creation.
Our human bodies are his temples to express his love "Love life
and live it"

Ocala Man Killed In Boating
Accident In Crystal River
An Ocala man was killed when the boat he was riding in
collided with a channel marker near Shell Island in Citrus County
Saturday, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officials.
Cary Clark, 38, was ejected from the boat operated by
Paul Facundus, 38, of Ocala, when it hit Channel Maker 14 at
about 1 p.m. Clark did not surface.
The 21-foot Stott Craft had three additional passengers
aboard, who were returning from a morning of scalloping in the
Gulf of Me\ico. The three other passengers and the operator were
riot injured.
A witness reported the collision almost immediately to
'Citrus County Sheriff's Office (CCSO). FWC officers responded,
along with the U.S. Coast Guard and CCSO dive team, and began
searching for the missing man.
Clark's body was ,recovered at approximately 5:30
,Saturday evening and was turned over to Jacksonville Medical
.Examiner's office.
The three other passengers were Michael Deas, 31, Ocala;
;Ashleigh R. Davis, 24, Summerfield; and Shirley J. Ogden, 27,
Ocala.
According to FWC Lt. Dennis DelaPaz, patrol supervisor,
:no one onboard was wearing a life jacket.
The accident investigation is ongoing, according to FWC
officials.

Feeding Alligators Takes Its Toll
A vehicle accident in the early morning hours today prompted
a multi-agency search for the truck in the Paynes Prairie Preserve
State Park. .,
According to Floricd Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Law Enforcement Officer John Duncan,
Alachua County, the driver lost control of his vehicle on Highway
441 and the truck sank into the canal.
The Florida Highway Patro (FHP) is investigating the accident
and called upon the Alachua County Sheriffs Office Dive Team
and FWC to help recover the vehicle.
FWC officials also performed another function at the site:
alligator control. "When we arrived on scene, there was an
extremely aggressive alligator that definitely showed all the signs
of having been fed by people," Duncan said. "The gator showed
none of the natural fear of people that a gator should exhibit and
actually tracked us' as we walked back and forth on the retaining
wall." A nuisance alligator trapper was called and the 11-foot
alligator was captured.
"Unfortunately, because it was so aggressive, we had to put the
gator down for the safety of the divers in the water," according to
Duncan.
"This is the result of people feeding the gators. If you feed one,
you are effectively signing the creature's death warrant," he
explained. "Another problem was we couldn't just 'corral' the
gator until the divers were out of the water. Obviously, this gator
was equating people with food. If we had let him go, there was a
distinct possibility that he could have hurt someone or a pet in the
future."
Duncan used his airboat to get out on the water and search for
the submerged truck using a pole. All this was done within 100
feet of a large sign staying that it is illegal to feed the alligators
and is punishable by a $500 fine and/or 60 days in jail.
FHP is continuing the investigation into the accident.
"I really wish I could get the message across to people that if
these animals are fed, they are going to become a danger to public
safety and will eventually end up in the back of a trapper's truck,"
Duncan said. "I hate killing these creatures because someone broke
the law."
FWC officers arrested a Charlotte County couple July 22 for
deliberately feeding an alligator; an offense that the agency's
alligator experts say is often associated with fatal attacks against
humans.
"When fed, alligators quickly lose their natural fear of people
and begin to associate human presence with a feeding opportunity.
This altered behavior creates a significant danger that jeopardizes
the safety of anyone who may come into contact with that
animal," said Harry Dutton, head of the FWC alligator
management section.
FWC officers operated on a tip from an anonymous source who
had witnessed a man, a woman and two children feeding an
alligator from a boat on the Peace River. When they received
another call from the anonymous source that the couple had
returned, officers staked out the area and were able to video and
photograph the feeding. FWC trappers were dispatched
immediately and removed two aggressive alligators, 8 foot 9
inches and 5 foot 11 inches in length, from the area.
The complete news release regarding this arrest can be viewed
at: http://myfwc.com/whatsnew/05/statewide/alligatorfeeding.html.
These arrests come in the wake of an unrelated fatal alligator
attack that occurred in Port Charlotte a week earlier. On the
evening of July 15, Kevin Albert Murray, 41, of North Port, was
swimming in a canal off the Myakka River when a 12-foot-2-inch
alligator attacked and killed him. Residents of the area claimed
that alligator had been fed.
It is illegal to feed alligators and the FWC strongly
recommends not feeding other wildlife where alligators might be
present. Feeding ducks, turtles or throwing fish scraps in the water
where alligators can associate humans with a feeding opportunity,
is tantamount to feeding an alligator. Information on how to

Bear Team Enjoys Another


Football Camp


From left, Kiandrea Hope, Micah Cassidy, "Z", Jerrel Tyson and K. C. Thomas.


By Chris Cole
The days are quickly passing by, and it won't be long until the
2005-2006 football season is here at last. Our J.V. and Varsity
home team, the "Dixie County Bears" are looking great for the
upcoming season, with both teams averaging about 30 players, this
year should be a success for the Bears.
Recently the "Dixie County Bears" held their annual Football
Camp at Picket Lake. While there, the team was able to practice
daily and talk with each other about the upcoming season.
One of the main events that happened during their stay at the
lake was that the team was able to sit down for about an hour and a
half and listen to a 16 year pro-football player who stopped by to
drop a few encouraging words. Mr. Zenon Adrusyshyn, better
know by his nickname "Z", spoke in front of the whole team about
his:experiences while pursuing his career and childhood dream to
become a professional football player.
A few achievements that "Z" shared with the Bears and myself
was that while in High School he set the Canadian National Javelin
record, and during his pro-football years he set the world record for
the longest punt in pro-football. That 108 yard punt was the punt of
the season and the punt of "Z's" whole career.
"Z" -is currently working for the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes, where he travels around the World to do just as he did for
the Bears, by letting young adults know that if you want something



'CAMA' Project
Contiued From Page 1
CAMA is made up of more than 100 employees in 17 field sites
throughout the state. Their mission is to protect Florida's coastal
resources including the preservation of lush coastal hammocks,
broad seagrass meadows, bountiful estuaries and lagoons, crystal
clear rivers, and beautiful coral reefs.
Their mission is carried out through the following principles:
*Manage the lands and waters in their care to ensure the
protection of the resources;
*Ecourage sustainable public access;
*Instill a sense of stewardship in people for their natural
resources;
*Promote "Leave No Trace" use of public lands;
*Focus efforts to address the greatest threats to the ecosystems;
*Seek partnerships to achieve their coals;
*Make decisions based on the best available science and
information;
*Seek consensus to resolve issues;
*Treat all people with civility; and
*Maintain the highest level of integrity.
The largest aquatic preserve in the state is our own "Big Bend
Seagrass Aquatic Preserve" which is made up of over 900 acres.
Bergstrom stressed that these natural wonders can be preserved
through proper research, resource monitoring activities, resource
restoration, public education and involvement. She stated that
public volunteers and involvement is of the utmost importance
when it comes to preserving our natural resources.
A number of individuals at the meeting expressed their
concerns about the number of new condos and other building
ventures that have sprung, up in our Big Bend area in the past few
years and what effect is will have .on our "original nature coast".
Bergstrom explained that she will be taking their concerns and
questions back to Tallahassee in hopes of using the information
gathered from all the 'state workshops' to provide better
legislation to protect our pristine area.
An area of concern expressed at the workshop was that there
needs to be adequate funding from the legislature to make sure that
these aquatic preserves are 'preserved' so that additional monies are
riot need to 'restore' these areas in the future, if they are not
presently monitored correctly.

The Chain of Survival Saves Lives
Recognize the warning signs


badly enough and you try hard enough then it will eventually come
your way. His motto is, "keep trying and never give up".
To say the least, I'm convinced that the team had a blast at
camp. The only thing that might be more fun that football camp for
the Bears, will be to finally get out on their on field and show
everyone their talent.
The Fall Kick-Off Classic will be held on August 19 in Trenton '
with both the varsity team and junior varsity team seeing action.
The first regular season game is set for August 26 in Chiefland
against the Indians.
Bear coach, Brent Wilkerson, is extremely busy this time of
year, but he made the time to sit down and talk with me briefly
about how the team is looking this season. Coach Wilkerson told
me that overall, the team was looking really good, he also stated
'that the Bears are looking a lot' more ph siical [ibis ear, and while
there may not be a lot of speed perf6rmande from most of the guys,
there is plenty of power on the Bears side to make up for it. Coach
Wilkerson believes that once the team makes it through the first
couple quarters, the guys should be able to wrap the, game up with
ease, because of how physically fit they are.
It will be another fun, interesting season this year. Come and
cheer on our hometown team, the "Dixie County Bears"
as they gear up for another great season. Good luck Bears!

Even Guys Can Be Sensitive


(NAPS)-Let's face it, get-
ting guys to own up to their
sensitivity has never been
an easy proposition, and this
holds true for skin sensitiv-
ity as well! But times are
changing and so are guys.
If you have sensitive skin,
you are not alone. In fact, in
a recent study, almost 70 per-
cent of men between the ages
of 18 and 55 claim to have
"somewhat" or "very" sensi-
tive skin. That's over half of
the male population!
If you're part of the 70 per-
cent, then you've probably
noticed that many things can
cause your skin to become
blotchy, red, irritated and dry.
The reason? Sensitive skin is
often thinner, with a finer tex-
ture than "normal" skin, and
it can't handle harsh ingre-
dients, rough treatment or
weather extremes without a
reaction.
And there's the rub-most
men's skin care and after-
shave products are formu-
lated for normal skin. But, as
we said, times are changing
and the grooming industry
has started to recognize that
not all men's skin is created
equal! More companies are
introducing products that are


Men with sensitive skin may
like using products de-
signed specially for them.
created just for men with sen-
sitive skin, and some, like
NIVEA FOR MEN, have a whole
collection that includes mois-
turizers, aftershave, cleansers
and more. These types of
products not only protect
against irritation but also pro-
vide moisturization to soothe
and soften skin so it looks
good and feels even better.
With that kind of benefit,
who wants to be a tough guy,
anyway? Bye-bye redness,
dryness and irritation...hello,
sensitive guy!

A Healthy New Role
For Garlic
(NAPS)-A recent study
that may be to everyone's
taste found that garlic may
prevent and potentially re-
verse or disperse arterio-
sclerotic plaque formation.
Arteriosclerosis, a progres-
sive thickening and harden-
ing of the arterial walls, can
result in heart disease, which
is the leading killer ofAmer-
icans today.









Conducted by Dr Gtinter
-Siegel director at the Benj-
amin Franklin Clinic of the
Free University of Berlin/
Germany, the research reveals
how exceptionally powerful a
S,:role garlic can play in pro-
tecting against this harmfully
progressive condition.
These findings provide fur-
ther evidence that taking a
; daily dosage of 300 mg of
Kwai Garlic may help pre-
Vent arterial plaque buildup
; or even reverse or disperse
existing plaque.,Kwai was the
only brand used in the study,
i and is available in drug, food
and other fine specialty stores
nationwide.

study, visit www.abkit.com

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

Triage Team Studies Impact Of
Hurricane Dennis
TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) today announced a new study regarding the Florida
Building Code and residential infrastructure in Panhandle
communities affected by Hurricane Dennis.
DCA's Building Code Assessment Triage Team surveyed
homes in Northwest Florida to determine how homes built to the
2001 Building Code withstood the July 10 hurricane.
"It is critical that we continue to learn more about the impacts
hurricanes have on Florida's residential infrastructure," said DCA
Secretary Thaddeus Cohen. "The study our team is conducting
will provide valuable information that will allow us to continue
updating Florida's Building Code to better protect Floridians and
their homes."
Following the landfall of Hurricane Dennis, DCA's Building
Code Assessment Triage Team deployed to the Florida Panhandle.
The triage team immediately began assessing storm related

impacts on residential structures in the area's most severely
impacted communities. Information gathered during the
deployment will be used by DCA's building code experts to make
future recommendations to the Florida Building Commission.
The team also gathered additional data in areas previously
impacted by Hurricane Ivan to determine how buildings damaged
during the previous storm and repaired to the 2001 Florida
Building Code withstood the impact of Hurricane Dennis.
Similar assessments conducted following the 2004 hurricanes
concluded homes built under the current Code generally sustained
less damage than those built to previous regulations.
The intent of the assessment is to learn what performed well,
but more importantly, what may need improvement. Lessons
learned from the assessment of building code performance and
.enforcement will be used by the Florida Building Commission to
explore potential changes to the Florida Building Code.
Continuing assessments of the Code's performance and
enforcement help building professionals, contractors, architects,
engineers, building owners and citizens to be better prepared for
future hurricanes and other severe weather threats.

Log Cabin

Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 4th at the.
Levy County Quilt Museum. It
seemed that on Thursday we
'had a lot of visitors and friends
come to see what we do here.,
It was great to have Sheriff
Johnny Smith and Deputy
Sheffield to come and visit so
many people they know. and
then to have lunch with us. We
also had people from New Port
Richy, Plant City and
Gainesville as well as
Chiefland and Trenton. We did
have a busy day and enjoyed
every minute of it.
Brenda Rymanowiez
brought in a "Cathedral
Window"' and needed to know
how to take care of it. We try
to help anyone with Treasures
and this is one. It was a gift
and we told her to never wash
it. We showed her how,to fold
it, roll and open it to keep it as
it is. It could be hung on a quilt
rack, but it needs to be
refolded about every 6 months.
In time, most that come in
wish that they had taken better
care of the quilts.
Quilting is going well on
all 3 quilts. Goldie was back
after visiting in Ocala. It won't
be long before we start on 3
more.
Lunch was so good, We
had Meatloaf, Rice, Corn
Fritters, Potato Salad, Baked
Chicken, Mustard Greens,
Corn Bread, Garlic Bread,
Betty's Coconut Pie, Lots of
cakes and so much more.

Tri-County Marine Corps League Plan

Ribbon Cutting At Hardee House
On Saturday August 20th at 5:00 P.M. the Chiefland Chamber of
Commerce Officials will share the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with
the Tri-County MCL & Auxiliary in celebration of the Corps new
meeting house; the Historic Hardee House. A few months back the
Corps- Detachment 1018 together with its Auxiliary acquired the
.home, now using it for their new home.
The Ceremony events will include a Trike Donation to a local
child, and. a Homecoming Speech. by Commandant Harry
Hopwood. The League eventually plans to make the Hardee
House into. a Museum, conducting tours for school children and
other organizations. There is much history to this "Cracker
House".
Until its sale some 15 years ago, the house remained occupied
by members of the Hardee family. With the help of the new
owners, the house was moved in order to save it. It is now two
blocks from its original location but still situated on the old
plantation land, at 6450 N.W. 110th Street here in Chiefland.
Auxiliary member and Secretary/treasurer Mary Byrd Christians
has devoted a great deal of time researching the Hardee House.
She has a lot of information to add about the House when it
becomes the Museum we are working towards, and hope to share
with all of the Tri-County area. She states that although its
appearance is not quite as grand, it still has a breath of life and can
speak to our hearts as part of Florida's rural heritage.
When the Tri-County MCL was formed the Chiefland VFW Post
5626 shared their post as a meeting place for the Marines. After
the League grew larger in number we were invited to use the DAV
Hall in Cross City.- The MCL & Auxiliary members wish to thank
the VFW and DAV members for their part in our growth.
We invite all of the Tri-Counties to share this happy occasion
with us; to come and see what we hope to-accomplish. We will
have refreshments; hot dogs, hamburgers...but......please, bring
your lawn chairs.
The Hardee House is easy to find. Going South on 19 past
Walmart, turn right (West) at Hardee's Drive Inn...stay onr the
road, which will eventually become 110th Street. Hardee House is
on the left. You cannot miss it!
For Further Information call: Commandant Harry Hopwood -

Statement From
Tom Gallagher
On Hurricane
Charley's
Anniversary
"This coming Saturday
marks the one year anniversary
of Hurricane Charley and the
unprecedented string of
catastrophic events that
followed. Four storms
inflicted damage in almost
every comer of our state but in
their aftermath, we gained a
newfound appreciation of what
our safety, our homes and our
communities mean to us.
"And though this is not an
anniversary to celebrate, it is
an unforgettable reminder of
the strength of spirit and
resilience of the people who
call Florida home.
"We have come a long way
over the last year and are well
on our way to 'rebuilding and
reclaiming our way of life.
However, despite the
measurable strides we're
making, there is still much to
do.
"I urge Floridians who are
still at odds with their
insurance companies and have
not yet gotten our help to

ELECTRIC METER READER
It's not what you think it is. Very few people can handle
the day-to-day rigors of this job and .stay with it. You
must be dedicated, hard working and physically tough
enough to handle the fast pace and all the obstacles
that only a rural meter reader can face. Every day you
will face the elements of the weather, various types of
insects, bad dogs and other aggressive animals. During
the first six months of your employment you will be
required to study and complete a series of job-related
lessons. Also, you will be expected to learn how to use
our line maps. HS diploma or GED is required, along
with a good driving record. Excellent wage progression
and benefits.
Apply at Central Florida Electric Cooperative, 1124 N.
Young Blvd., Chiefland or email your resume to
hr@cfec.com. Application deadline is 5 p.m., 8/15/05.

Bears' Marching Band Says "Thank You"

.. 1 i t *..i. ^ A'


-1-W

The Dixie County High School Marching Bears' Band recently received their new uniforms, compliments of the Dixie District School Board.
While the band had been busy with fundraisers in order to purchase the new uniforms, the School Board voted to go ahead and pay for the whole
"kit and caboodle". This has truly been a gift for these young musicians. Director Jamie Garrett could not wipe the smile off her face when they
dressed out and she saw how sharp they all looked. You could see the pride in each of their eyes as well. The new uniforms will surely be the envy
of many neighboring high school bands. See you at the games! GO BEARS!!


This week's Dixie comes from our faithful "Sightings Couple",
Capt. Ron & KC Campbell of Old Town. They wrote saying that
one afternoon in early July they had visitors out at their place,
three of whom were young girls. The girls were mesmerized by
several dragonflies that were fluttering about.
KC told them to just hold up their finger, be patient, and
eventually one will land on the tip of your finger. As shown in the
picture, 8 year old Rebecca did just that.
KC also relayed the following information she found out about
these friendly bugs.,. Dragonflies date back 300 million years and
are one of the first winged insects ever found. Fossils of the
aquatic insects show wingspans of up to 24 inches compared to the
2-5 inch spans of today's dragonflies. Scientists have discovered
more than 5,000 species of dragonflies worldwide, including 450
in the North America alone.

Left, in 1942 Chester joined the US Navy and
attended medical training in Great Lakes, IL. He
graduated Pharmacist mate and later attended
Massey Business College.
Top, in 1948 he worked for National Container, as
Plant Safety Engineer and First Aid.
Below, in 1953 in joined AVCO Aerostructures as
Plant Safety Engineer and Medical Director.
In 1982 he retired and moved back to Florida.


Dragonflies belong to the insect order called Odonata, which
also includes damselflies. Odonata is a Greek word meaning
toothed one and refers to the serrated teeth located on the insect's
chewing mouth parts.
During their 2-week to 2-month lifespan, adult dragonflies stay
busy snatching and eating mosquitoes, moths, bees, butterflies, or
even other dragonflies.
Dragonflies lay hundreds of eggs by dropping them into the
water and leaving them to hatch or by inserting eggs, one at a time
into a slit in the stem of submerged plants. It can take 2-3 years for
the complete metamorphosis (egg, youth nymph, mature nymph,
adult) to take place.
Thanks Campbells!
ANSWERS TO LAST WEEK'S SIGHTING: Wow, we had a
great response for last week's question about the spiders. First to
call was Miss Jennifer Sparacinio. Jennifer stated that she thought
the bottom spider was a "Diamond Blue-Back" and is poisonous.
Jennifer said she got her information from school. Thanks,
Jennifer. The next caller, Jennifer Loy, stated that the top spider is
what some folks call a Banana Spider..Jennifer's knowledge comes
from living in the woods and learning from her parents.
Nancy Croley from the Florida Dept. of Agriculture &
Consumer Services Division of Plant Industry emailed us with
her findings. The top spider's scientific name is Araneidae
Neoscona crucifera an orbweaver. The bottom spider is
Araneidae Argiope aurantia or black & yellow garden spider. If
you want to know more... log onto their website at
http://www.fsca-ori/CollectionsFrame.htm. Thanks, Nancy!

Above, recently C.A. traveled back to Tennessee
and enjoyed a reunion with all the people he used
to work with who have now joined him in
retirement.


Rumor has is
that he has taken
up another job
in his retirement -
He might be on the
pit crew for the
Kasye Jones
Racing Team.


.... offering a kind
S word to anyone
Our Daddy he meets.
Years ago in a small town in the Florida panhandle, a baby
boy was born to C. Angelo Butler and Laura Butler. The
youngest son of four children, C.A. was a fun loving little
boy growing up in a rural southern town. As a young man, he
served in the Navy in World War II and then married a
southern lady at age 30. He joined the Masons and shortly
thereafter, the family left their home state for the mountains.
of Tennessee. Dad worked as a safety engineer for AVCO
Aerospace for 29 years. After raising three children, he
retired and returned to the simple life in Horseshoe Beach,
S Florida where he grew up and he has happily roamed the
'woods for the past 23 years. These are the facts of his life but
his worth is in the positive and upbeat way he lives his life!
He truly never meets a stranger and his friendly attitude is
admired by many. My brother, sister and I admire Dad's
active and healthy lifestyle and we all feel blessed to call him
our DAD! We praise the Lord to be able to celebrate this age
milestone with him and wish him many more happy and
healthy years!
We Love You,
Kris
