School Board Names New Curriculum Director
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
In an effort to bring Dixie's FCAT scores to their very best, the Dixie County School Board has
named a Director of Curriculum, 35 year veteran, Garry Durham. Durham has his BA in English
and Masters in Education Administration and a whole lot of enthusiasm.
The new' position was formed after a state mandate came down from Capitol Hill, stating that
students K- 10 w ho have scored below a 3 on the Reading portion of the FCAT must attend an
additional 50-90 minute block of reading, along with their regular English/Reading classes.
Administrators knew that. organization will be the key to the success of this new mandate's goal to
bring all students to grade level reading.
Durham will be working with -all teachers, throughout the
district, as well as reading coaches and principals. The focus
will be on a literacy plan that will better prepare students for
taking the FCAT; one designed to motivate and build up their
confidence.
Students scoring below a level 3 will be given a
dialogistic test to see just where they are and what areas they
need improvement in. In 9th and 10t grades, the focus will be
on a higher order of thinking skills. While many students are
able to read, past scores are showing a deficiency in those
skills needed to pass in the higher grades.
"We will be working smart," stated Durham. He added
:.- r that he expects that all the schools will do well this coming
S year. "I can already see a positive attitude in the teachers and
S students alike," Durham noted. "Success breeds success, and
that's where Dixie schools are headed."
Garry Durham-Dixie Schools Once reading scores are up, math will be the next area to
Director of Curriculum focus on. However, Dixie has in the past few years shown to
be average to above average in their math scores.
After 24-years as Anderson Elementary School's Principal, Durham stated that he was ready for
a change; however, he will miss his "Kids" and plans to make the best of his visits to his old
stomping grounds.
Durham and wife, Debbie, live in Cross City. Their daughter, Karen is a DCHS Graduate and
resides in Gainesville. Sarah, their youngest will be graduating this coming year from DCHS.
Durham will no doubt face challenges along the way, but there is no doubt that he will persevere
and succeed in the task laid before him. "We have a wonderful group of teachers and kids here in
Dixie," stated Durham. "Together we are going to reach our goals."

Just what college football needed
For institutions and individuals pursued by the plague of
political correctness. it seems there is no safe haven these da.s. The
paragonss of PC would no doubt destroy Western Ckilization itself
'in its relentless eflborts to herd the masses into conformity.
SRemember a few years back. when a lady(?) reporter by the
name of Lisa Olson brought about legal action against a football
,team because, when she went into a locker room, some of the men
*were (gasp!) naked! (Can you imagine some male reporter going
]into a women's locker room and then complaining because some of
.them weren't properly clothed? For that matter, can you fathom a
mere male getting away with invading a women's locker room at
all ?)
The feminists were behind Ms. Olson and her voyeuristic.
excursion into political correctness, but PC has other priorities as
| well. Racial sensitivity, for instance. .
Well, we all know by now (or we should) to call Brazil nuts
Brazil nuts. But there's a whole heap of difference between rational
sensitivity in the use of ethnic terms and the latest edict to surface
from the hallowed halls of the National Collegiate Athletic Ass-
ociation.
The NCAA has decided that football teams cannot display
Names or symbols associated with "Native Americans" (that's PC
for "American Indians") in NCAA-sanctioned post-season games.
| By the way, we're not talking just about slang terms. We have
the Central Michigan University Chippewas, the Mississippi
College Choctaws, The University of North Dakota Sioux, and of
course "the Florida State University Spminoles. All these teams
display-in celebratory fashion--the names of major Indian tribes.
We also have the North Carolina University Braves, the
Northeastern State Redmen, the College of William & Mary Tribe,
o the University of Virginia Wahoos, and 26 colleges calling their
teams the Warriors, at least some of which we must assume involve
; an implied reference to Indian tribes.
So, who's objecting to Indian names for sports teams? For sure
not the Seminole Tribe of Florida. They've threatened legal action
Against the NCAA for its asinine policy. That seems to be typical of
the reaction of most of those speaking on behalf of Indian tribes.
Of course, there are exceptions. Vernon Bellecourtn. a career
agitator, is president of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports
t and Media. He's disappointed that the NCAA didn't outlaw the use
of Indian nicknames altogether.
., Obviously, Mr. Bellecourt is unaware that theNCAA doesn't
, have that kind of authority, otherwise they would no doubt have
o exercised it. Nonetheless, requiring the Seminoles to shed their
team logos, mascot, :and even their name in post-season
competition is obviously an effort to get them to abandon these
i accoutrements altogether.
| And then we have Hernan Vera, a sociology professor at the
4 University of Florida. He also likes the NCAA's policy, and he. too,
would like to see the NCAA ban Indian nicknames altogether. And
like Bellecourt, he doesn't know squat about football or the
parameters of the NCAA's authority, let alone how responsible
American Indians feel about this maner.
Incidentally, I wonder what Mr. Vera will have to say when the
i PC crowd undertakes to ban animal names in response to PETA
| agitation. Is he going to agree that it's "insensitive" to call
Florida's teams the "Gators?"
Absurd? Sure. But so is the NCAA's policy on Indian names, so;
don't assume it couldn't happen.

Letter To The Editor
I have a question. We have
all read reports on some
daycare businesses and they are
not good ones, as I may add.
'My question is why is it when
DCF takes children, they make
the parents agree to daycare or
they do not get their children
back.
But... ask about church?
They will tell you that it's not
important. I believe church
would do more good than
daycare. I know it was 'used
against me. I will continue to
pray for all the children that are
in the state's care. I believe
more people should pray for
our children in the care of the
state.

The Boyd Report
"...And Now for the Bad News"
By Congressman Allen Boyd (D-FL)
Thomas Jefferson once said, "Never put off till tomorrow what
you can do today." However, many government leaders seem to
go against these words of wisdom when dealing with the troubling
financial problems of our federal government. While the latest
Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report states that the federal
deficit this year is still huge-$331 billion-it is not as bad as
originally projected-$412 billion. At the same time, the
nonpartisan budget agency said that the fiscal outlook remains
grim for years to come. Many are touting this brief fiscal reprieve
as refreshing and even outstanding news.
As a man who worries as much about our future as I do about
our present, I'm appalled that these projections are being lauded as
success. The CBO report released on Monday of this week
predicts that the deficit will fall by $81 billion to $331 billion in
the current fiscal year. This is down from last year's record high
deficit of $412 billion. By comparison, this year's deficit is a slight
improvement, but the long term forecast shows no substantial
progress in our fiscal situation. In 2006, the CBO projects that the
deficit will be $314 billion and will remain above. $300 billion a
year through 2010. It seems that the decrease in this year's deficit
is not a marked indication of long term improvements. The fact is
that until we fundamentally reform the federal budgeting process,
there is no end in sight to the dismal deficits we're seeing now.
Simply put, our country's fiscal policy is'broken.
According to the CBO report, the government will accumulate
enough revenues to pay for approximately 75 percent of
government expenses in fiscal year 2005. The remaining 25
percent, which amounts to about $507 billion, will be financed by
borrowing, with the majority of the funds coming from foreign
sources-like China and Japan-and the Social Security Trust Fund.
In fiscal years 2003 and 2004, our government was able to cover
only approximately 70 percent of expenses. All in all, it seems that
those applauding our fiscal situation are only celebrating a measly
five percent.
As we learn of the bleak, long term forecast of our nation's
fiscal house, I think most Americans would be appalled to learn of
the ridiculously lenient and careless budget guidelines in Congress,
which primarily contribute to our growing financial problems.
Most Americans do not realize how deeply their tax dollars are
being mismanaged. As a leader of the Blue Dog Coalition, I have
dedicated much of my efforts in Congress to addressing the
irresponsible policies of our budget process. The Blue Dogs are
comprised of centrist Democrats in the House of Representatives
committed to developing reasonable and realistic solutions to our
nation's fiscal problems. This year, we developed a 12-step budget
reform plan to -restore fiscal sanity and get America out of the
deficit hole and back on the road to financial freedom.
The Blue Dog plan not only requires Congress to balance the
budget, but also proposes that any new spending or tax cut must be
paid for by making tough choices and cuts in other places. Known
as "PAYGO," this directive helped stimulate a budget surplus in
the 1990s and would prohibit Congress from buying on credit by
requiring the government to have the necessary funds for all new
-spending. The Blue Dogs' budget reforms will also keep taxpayers
informed about how their dollars are being spent by demanding
that federal agencies undergo thorough audits to answer for what
they spend and requiring honest cost estimates for every bill that
goes through Congress.
Ultimately, the consequences of our government's fiscal
irresponsibility are heaped onto the backs of the American people,
and it is time for us to stand up and demand .stricter budgetary,
guidelines to control our bad habit of deficit spending. We must
put a stop to the outrageous spending practices of the current
Administration and enact budget reforms in Congress before the.
problem becomes worse. The Blue Dogs have made the first step
by developing budgetary guidelines that will rein in irresponsible
government spending. Unfortunately, few members in Congress
besides the Blue Dogs are backing these reforms.
Restoring fiscal sanity to our deficit-ridden federal government
is a daunting task that requires difficult choices and spending
restraint, both of which ,are not always popular amongst
politicians. However, I think it should be even more unpopular to
saddle our children and grandchildren with this financial burden. I
hope the recent CBO report will not be used as evidence to further
procrastinate on implementing budgetary reforms, but instead
prompt our government leaders to tackle our financial problems
today so we can all enjoy economic health tomorrow.

By Terri Langford -Staff Writer
S' i Last week the Dixie
f'% County Republican Executive
Pi Committee unveiled their new
-.- Republican Party Headquarters
S ; in Cross City and dedicated it
-7 '. to two very important local
1 Republicans, George and Joy
S. ,' Anderson. It is. because of all
their hard work and dedication
Pictured left to right: George & Joy Anderson and Representative to the GOP that the Dixie
Dennis Baxley at the Grand Opening of the Republican couple was honored by having
Headquarters. the new headquarters named
after them, the George & Joy Anderson Republican Center.
An unveiling and celebration was held last Thursday, August 7th at the office located on the
comer of US 19 and Barber Ave., next to Dixie Chevrolet. Some 93 visitors stopped in to extend
their congratulations to the Andersons as well as the Dixie Republican Executive Committee.
Committee Chairman, John Friskey noted that the new headquarters is not only a place to gather and
work from during elections, but symbolizes the growth of the party in Dixie County. To date there
are just over 2,000 registered Republicans in Dixie County.
The celebration was non-partisan. Cross City Mayor Tank Lee stopped in and gave his
congratulations to the group and wished them well. Throughout the evening George and Joy would
receive phone calls from dignitaries such as Governor Jeb Bush, Congresswoman Kathryn Harris,
Senator Mel Martinez, Senator Nancy Argenziano and Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida
Carol Jean Jordan. The letters and phone calls added to the tribute to the Andersons and .gave the
Committee Members a boost
of confidence and DIXIE COUNTY
encouragement. On a personal DIXIE COUNT
level the Andersons were I T T ] A
proud to have their son, Oscar '
and daughter Robin attending.
A very special guest .. '.
arrived at the festivities,
Florida House of "
Representative, District 24,
Dennis Baxley, who
postponed his trip to "
Tennessee to be with the
Andersons on their special
Sday and to speak to guests ,J
about the vision of the
SRepublican Party and how
each and every person can "--
Smake a difference.
Friskey stated that they" I -"
have been overwhelmed with
the outpouring of support.
Bev Kilmer donated office
furniture for the new Center, Left to right.are the Dixie County Republican Executive Committee:
Computers and More donated Ellen Sands-Secretary, Stan Meeks-Precinct Worker, George & Joy
computers and programming Anderson-State Committee Chairperson, Bob Anderson-Vice
services, and Representative Chairman, Chris Harmon-Treasurer, and John Friskey-Chairman.
Baxley donated a phone and
fax machine, along with his promise to continue to be their mentor. The Distinguished Citizens of
Dixie County are paying the rent on the office, which will be used to organize the Party and make it
possible for future Republican candidates to succeed.
The evening kicked off a great beginning for the Dixie Republican Party thanks to a host of
helping hands and great food from Elaine's Catering. A special thanks goes out to the Twisted
Dragon Karate Studio for allowing the party to flow into their front office space.
"Our main goal is to become a stable presence here in Dixie County," stated Frisky. "We plan
on making a difference, to be a supportive base for Republican candidates not only locally but
statewide as well." George and Joy Anderson are a prime example of what can be done with
perseverance and dedication and it is that example that will guide the Dixie Party, giving them
inspiration and solid foundation to continue to grown on.
Congratulations to the Andersons and Best of Luck to the Dixie Grand Ole' Party!

VANDALS. Cont From Pg. 1
out and inside destruction of property. Waldo Park off Spillers Highway had the doors from the
restrooms torn off and one toilet damaged to the extent that it had to be replaced. All of these
incidents have occurred in the last couple of months.
Commissioner Lamb noted that Turner Point Landing is currently closed to all vehicular traffic
due to construction and will remain closed until all work is complete, hopefully by September.
In addition to vandalism, park attendants and residents have been complaining about 4-
wheelers carelessly driving through the parks where children are playing. Lamb noted there is in
fact a county ordinance that prohibits any off-road vehicle from entering a county park/boat ramp
area.
"We have got to put-a stop to this," stated Lamb. "We, can't even get these parks built before
someone comes along and destroys the progress being made," he added.
Costs for projects like the Turner Point Landing boat ramp are high and funding isn't always
there. A' great deal of work is put into securing the grants that help fund these projects. In addition
a great deal of work is put into the construction itself.
Commissioner Lamb is putting out a plea for help from all Dixie citizens to help catch these
criminals. We must band together and protect these public facilities, after all, as taxpayers it is
your property being destroyed. .
Commissioner Lamb stated that Sheriff Hatcher will be working with the county in addressing
This situation. If you have any information on these prior incidents or see a criminal act in the
making contact the Dixie County Sheriffs Office immediately at 498-1231.

"TRAUMA"
Continued from page 1
The morning session concentrated on stroke education. The information that Shands' stroke
program provided through the class will prove to be invaluable for emergency workers in dealing
with stroke victims. Dr. Scott Silliman, MD, Director of Shands Stroke Program and Dr. Nader
Antonis, MD, Barbara Quinn, MSN, Stroke Program Coordinator, all from Shands Jacksonville,
brought their expertise to the table and were able to answer questions.
ShandsCair Gainesville was one of three air ambulances that attended the seminar and made the
morning session before responding to a call. The flight crew made themselves available fori
attendee's questions and provided them with a up close view of the helicopter.
After a great lunch, provided by CJ Systems, the air craft vendor for all three programs, the
afternoon session was divided into three separate classes. Each class focused on a different area of
emergency medicine. The Adult Trauma class, taught by flight crew members from AirMedic One
out of Perry and TraumaOne out of Lake City were helped by "Stan", a Human Patient Simulator,
purchased by TraumaOne Flight Service with a grant from the Florida Bureau of EMS, Department
of Health in 2003. The field experience of the flight crew and their knowledge of trauma medicine
was impressive and helped EMT and health care workers have a better understanding of what needs
to be done to stabilize patients en route to the hospital.
The Infant Assessment covered emergencies of newborn to one-year-old children using
BabySim. BabySim is the first of its kind with TraumaOne being the first to receive this innovative
tool. Costing $50,000.00, the simulator was purchased through a grant from the Children's Miracle
Network in 2004. Working with BabySim was quite an experience and different from anything
experienced by the group. The information and techniques acquired through this class was priceless
as BabySim showed the special care needed for the younger patients.
Rounding off the afternoon session was a class that focused on how EMT's can better assist
paramedics and other advanced providers during cardiac arrest. The treatment that a heart patient
receives during their attack can make the difference in whether or not that patients lives.
TraumaOne Education Outreach has been a positive tool in educating the EMS provider. Their
commitment to patient care has benefited not only medical personnel, but the patients themselves.
Dixie's Division Chief of Emergency Medicine, Scott Garner was one of many of the Dixie EMT's
attending the seminar and stated that his crew came away feeling motivated and empowered by the
techniques taught.
Dixie's Emergency Management Director, Chad Reed, extended a special thanks to Shands
TraumaOne for giving them the opportunity to host the training. "The more we can learn, the better
equipped we are at giving the best treatment available to our patients," Reed stated. "And that is
what it is all about."

Arrington & Gaff To Wed


Jennifer Arrington & Joshua Gaff
Mr. & Mrs. James 0. Arrington of Williston, Fl. announce the
approaching marriage of their daughter,
Jennifer L. Arrington
to
Joshua L. Gaff
son of Mike L. Gaff and Mrs. LaDonna Metz of Cross City, Fl.
The wedding is planned for September 3, 2005 at 2:00 PM at
the Williston Church of God, 225 SE 4th St. Williston, FL 32693.
A reception will follow.
All family and friends are invited to attend. No local invitations
will be sent.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev21:3
I the Day of the Lord, say as at the spirit of God moved upon the face of
the waters, and brought order and beauty and harmony out of chaos-so
truly is that same spirit once again moving o'er all the earth, and bringing
forth a New Creation out of moral religious, and political chaos. We read
in Gen. 1:1. "In the beginning God.....That is where the old creation starts;
and that is where the New Creation starts. I the Day of the Lord, say It
begins with the Sovereign God. And how thankful we are that once again
God had begun a great work in the hearts and lives of His people. There is
a great and mighty Revival in progress. To many people, of course, there
is no indication of any Revival-for the simple, reason that this is the day
and hour of the Kingdom; and the Kingdom of God cometh not with
observation.... "It is only by the illumination of the spirit that men can see
and know and understand the great and mighty work. that God is now
bringing to pass in the midst of the earth. I the Day of the Lord, say" We
believe the hour has come when the people should know and understand,
at least in part, the meaning of Israel's annual 'Feasts, for they constitutes
a very beautiful type and patterns for the church. There is a time and a
time and a season for the proclamation of every Biblical truth, and when
God's hour of revelations has struck, the spirit of God 's secrets and
initiate His- people into the mystences of God. I the Day of the Lord, say
when Jesus declared so emphatically, I am the Truth," He there and then
completely demolished the idea that Truth has anything in common with
creeds and doctmnes and theories about God and spiritual things And not
only so, for if Christ is Truth, then Truth come. to us in garments of
hurrulity and meekness and will find little acceptance at the hands of the
learned or the ecclesiastical. I the Day of the Lord, say It is strange but
true that those who lead the masses in the religious realm are those who
cast the Truth aside when He knocks at their door and asks for admission.
There is only one answer to this strange state of affairs, and it is this:
Ecclesiast success has deelbped into pride of heart and with that pride has
come that laodicean spirit, so pret alent in all evangelical circles today: I.
am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing. ( Rev.
3 17 1 the Day of the Lord,;: say, the kingdom belongeth to those who area
and have nothing, those who are poor in spirit and such as hunger ad thirst
after righteousness. Continued next week...

Faith Baptist Church News
It was another glorious day in church today. Faith had
wonderful services both morning and evening. Bro Jackie blessed
our hearts with the messages that God had given him and the
special music and was great as usual. In the morning service, Chris
Lord and Tommy McQueen did our special music and in the
evening service Janet Osteen sang for us. They all did excellent
jobs. We are so proud of the talent we have at Faith..
Remember Saturday night will be a special sing at Faith with
the Anchors Quartet in concert. It starts at 7:00 PM. There is no
charge, but a love offering will be taken. So, come out Saturday
night expecting a blessing and 'bring someone with you. We are
looking forward to a great time in the Lord.
We would like to invite you to Sunday School if you haven't
been attending. We have some wonderful teachers for classes of all
ages and we study the lesson and enjoy great fellowship at the
same time. So we ask you to make an effort next Sunday to get up
just a wee bit earlier and try to make it to Sunday School.
Remember this week to pray for someone less fortunate,
someone who is sick, or has lost a loved one, or just a neighbor or
friend who doesn't attend church. God will bless you for it and
your prayer may be just what that person needs in their life.
We at Faith love you and are praying for you and hoping to see
you in church next week. If you're looking for a'church home, just
give us a try and we'll show you the love we have to share with
you. If you'ree just passing through, stop in an tiine. Until we meet.

Abundant Life & Living
Some Food For Thought: While we are enjoying abundant life
and living, and graciously thinking God for giving his precious
son Jesus to make it all possible.
We, The Church Christian
Family are busy getting ready for
Jesus to return to the Earth planet,
to receive his church without spot
or wrinkle.
.. Think: If He returned today,
9 could we see or know him if he
was poor, sick, dirty, ragged,
hungry, and asking for help?,
Would we greet him if He arrived
at a Bar, Club, Red-light District or
Ghetto? Would we invite him into
LucilleStockton our homes if He was wearing
Shorts, Sandals, Blue Jeans, Tattoos, and riding a Motorcycle?
Think; What do you expect him to be wearing? What do you
think He would say? What do you think him to look like? Where
Do you think He will arrive? East, West, North, or South.? Do
you think it will be morning, afternoon or night?
Let us stay aware that we Don't miss Him, make sure we
know Him when He arrive. Matthew 24:31 (kjv) Jesus told his
disciples He would send his angels to gather his elect. Do all the
Good you can.
"Love Life And Live It."


New Prospect Baptist News
On Sunday, we enjoyed a really good turn-out for Sunday
School and church services. Our choir did its usual fine job
singing,. after which our "little choir" treated us to a number or
two. What a blessing it is to see the little children singing praises
to the Lord with such youthful enthusiasm! Bro. Billy brought a
very timely and gripping message from God's Word, choosing his
text from Luke 22:31-34, then expanded further on the same verses
during the evening service.
We will enjoy our Fellowship Supper Wednesday night, a time
to which we always look forward with anticipation. There will be
a Community Sing at New Prospect on Saturday, August 27th,
beginning at 6 PM. Please come out and join us for some good
gospel singing!
Once again, we enjoyed having visitors, and truly look forward'
to your return, as well as to any new visitors who might bless us
with your presence....all are.welcome. Please keep those prayers
going for the folks on the various prayer lists, our people in the
armed forces, and our president and other leaders. Hope you have
a good week, and may God bless you.


Our Little MAn *
Jacob we are so glad that you finally
arrived. It seems like we waited forever
to see your beautiful little face, and your
bright blue eyes. You fill our hearts with
so much love and happiness with every
passing day. We just wanted to tell you
that you mean the world to us. We love
you "ill man".

Buddy Martin's
Weekly Sports Commentary
The Error Of The

NCAA's Ways
If the NCAA's feeble attempt at political
correctness wasn't so sad, it might be funny.
It was also
embarrassing to the
brain trusts of

S the Oklahoma
Seminole Indians

-[ butt out on the
S" r matter of Florida
State using the
tribe's name as its
symbol.
When one lone
Oklahoma Seminole spoke out against it, the
tribe quickly reacted by voting 18-2 to strike it
down.
Without question, some names are offensive.
Arqy name based on the color of one's skin, as
in 'Redskins," should be held in question if not
outright condemned. In the case of the Florida
State Seminoles, it would seem the heritage of
a Native American tribe is being honored.
After all, FSU had gained permission from the
Seminoles themselves to continue using the
name when this matter first surface 20 years
ago.
It got me to thinking about other nicknames
and, as my duty to point out to the NCAA the
error of its ways, I wondered about these:
? The Humpback Whales of University of
Alaska-Southwest, Juneau, Alaska. Really,
now, how can we help save the whales when
other teams are hunting them down?
? The Wasps of Emory and Henry College,
Emory Virginia'. Do you care nothing about the
White Anglo Saxon Protestants?
? Devils, devils everywhere: The Mississippi
Valley University Delta Devils; Wake Forest
Uniiversity Demon Deacons; The Texas A&M
International University Dustdevils; The Blue
Devils of Duke University ... yada, yada, yada.
? 'Not to mention the Bullets of Gettysburg
College and Bombers of Ithaca College.
And while we're at it, how about killing off.
those Boll Weevils at University of Arkansas-
Monticello?
After all that, we'll have teams called the
Tigers and Lions and Wildcats and Bulldogs.
Aid college football will live happily ever
after.
This Just In
After a cursory look at the conference
races in college/ football, I see Virginia Tech
rising up in the ACC to displace Miami and/or
Florida State as the league champion; Iowa
edging out Michigan and Ohio State in the Big
10; Texas and Mack Brown finally getting it
done in the Big 12 and breaking the Oklahoma
curse; USC prevailing again in the Pac 10; and
the winner of the Florida-Tennessee game
winning the SEC. But I reserve the right to
"adjust" my picks in a few weeks.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. There is a T.O. free zone.
2. Frankly, I'm a little surprised that Ohio State
defensive back Jack Tatum was named to


college football's Hall of .Fame, given his
reputation after the questionable hit that
paralyzed Darryl Stingley.
3. The South Carolina players charged with
theft who accused Steve Spurrier of reneging
on his promise most not know the difference
between a coach and a prosecutor.
4. For the life of me, I've tried to figure
out CNN/Sports Illustrated's top ,"Sports
Characters" of the last 25 years Magic
Johnson, Dennis Rodman, John McEnroe?? -
and I just don't get it.
5. What I love most about Tiger Woods
is that he never gives up.
Short Stuff
Urban Meyer message about his Gators
being "talented by not tough" is a warning to
his players that he wants better fourth-quarter
effort than what Ron Zook's teams gave ...
With the impressive straight-ahead running of
Derek Watson Friday night and the acquisition
of Cadillac Williams by the Bucs, is Earnest
Graham going to have to fight for a roster
spot? ... The Yankees ain't dead yet.
Clipboard
A little Heisman
music, please
Don't hold me to these, but after some
brief research of the college football rosters,
here is the list from which I would choose the
names for my Heisman Trophy ballot in 2005:
--USC quarterback Matt Leinart, the
2004 winner, and Trojan running back Reggie
Bush
--Texas quarterback Vince Young
--Oklahoma running back Adrian
Peterson
--Florida quarterback Chris Leak
--Michigan wide receiver Steve
Breaston
--Tennessee running back Gerald Riggs
--Ohio State linebacker A.J. Hawk
Nothing But 'Net
(with help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Say What?
Five reasons why the English language is so
hard to learn:
1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse
more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
Bumper sticker, sign or tee-shirt
1. Save America: Elect ,A Cowboy As
President.
2. I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar
territory.
3. When the chips are down, the buffalo is
empty.

Temperatures are on the rise and that can mean only one thing,
besides high AC bills. Southern pine beetle (SPB) activity is
heating up. Many landowners are familiar with this pest and the
havoc it can cause. Sound forest management, however, can help
prevent SPB outbreaks and damage, as well as enhance recreation
opportunities, reduce the risk of loss from wildfires, and increase
the economic potential of forest land. Listed are tips forestland
owners can use to better protect themselves from southern pine
beetle infestation.
Thin dense, overcrowded pine stands to increase vigor of
remaining trees, make beetle spread difficult due to wider
spacing and produce higher value wood products at final harvest.
Prescribe burn to reduce competing hardwood vegetation
and underbrush beneath pines, reduce wildfire hazard, and
enhance wildlife and aesthetic value.
Minimize or avoid wounds to pines during harvesting
operations to reduce the production of pine odors that attract pine
beetles.
Match the site with the ideal species of pine. Longleaf
and slash pine are more resistant to southern pine beetles than
other pine species, such as loblolly and shortleaf. A forester can
help you determine which species are appropriate for a given
site.
Remove pines weakened by disease, injury, lightning or
other stress to increase overall stand vigor.
By following simple tips like these, your timber stand will be
better prepared to withstand the "heat" brought on by southern pine
beetles.
For more information on southern pine beetle prevention or any
other forest-related issues, contact Adam Parden, Dixie County
Forester at (352) 498-1322 or (850) 838-2286.

Police Ticket
Themselves
Two Romanian police
officers were ordered by
their superiors to fine
themselves for walking
on the grass. Elvis
Pricina and Iulian
Gherghel, both from
Craiova, had to write
themselves tickets for
60 leu each after they
were caught tromping
over new grass by the
vice mayor, who just
happened to be
checking on whether' .
new laws set to protect

New Hedge Stolen
From Front Yard
A Norway family's lawn
went from bushy to bare
overnight after a thief
uprooted and stole their
newly planted hedges.
"After the initial shock,
I just felt very sad," said
Kristin Molvick
Botnmark. The hedge
was last seen on a
Thursday at 2pm. The
family reported it
missing the following
Monday after returning
from a weekend


vacation. "It may be a
theft by someone
wanting a, new hedge,"
surmised husband Borre
Botnmark. "Or it could
be a band of thieves
who drive around and
offer cheap gardening
help, and who offer
greenery for people's
gardens. Someone
clearly is trying to profit
off of this." Botnmark
said he believes the
uprooter "must have
struck during the night,
otherwise our neighbors
would have noticed
something." Now,
instead of replacing the
hedge, the family has
decided to put up a
fence. (Weekly World

It is said that there are no atheists in foxholes.
It was a time of war...a time of battle, lives lost forever on a
field of sorrow. The general in charge was a religious man...a
man of letters... a man of the word. He felt compelled to insure
that the men in his command, his men...did not go to meet their
maker unprepared. At his own expense, he bought and issued a
bible to each and every soldier. And Sunday services were
required.
Yes, this long ago, a time when our country was quarreling with
itself. So, you might understand that the general was both taken
back and affronted when it was reported to him that on this
Sunday...a soldier was caught gambling and not in services. The
man was brought before him, deck of cards in. hand. When an
explanation was demanded as to why the soldier was desecrating
the Sabbath, the man said, that he was not'gambling; only playing.
with the cards, Here is his story, as he explained it to the general.
The ace or the card with one spot tells me that there is but one
God.

4- The card with two spots reminds me that the bible is divide into
two parts,
4- the old and the new testaments.
4- The trey that there are three persons in the trinity.
4- The four spotted card tells me that the New Testament was
written by the four Evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John..
I- The five that there were five foolish and five wise virgins.
4 The six'- reminds me that God created the world in six days.
4- Seven of course, the Sabbath and that he rested on that seventh
day.
4- The card with eight spots serves to remind .me of the eight
beatitudes, perhaps the greatest sermon preached by our Lord.
J- The nine card tells me of the nine lepers who id not return to the
Savior to give thanks.
4- The ten for the ten commandments.
4- The Jack....the jack is the knave, the Devil'who goes about
Seeking the destruction of souls.-
4- The Queen is the Mother of Heaven, the Mother of God.
The King, is the Kingdom of Heaven which will be my reward
of a good life.
4- But the deck of cards is even more. The pack is an almanac.
4- There are fifty two cards in the deck, telling me there are fifty-
two Sundays in the year. Add up all the spots and you will find
365 in all, telling me there are 365 days in the year.
4- There are thirteen cards to a suite, which tells me there are
thirteen lunar month in the year.
4- In all, there are twelve face cards, which reminds me there are
twelve calendar months to each year. /
4- There are four suites, hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs,
signifying the four seasons, spring, winter, summer and fall.
People see what they want to see.

Schooners
The river was not accessible to these large ships because of a
large sandbar that blocked the entrance. In 1835, the Army Corp of
Engineers removed the sandbar, that had provided an easier'
crossing for those on horseback, and dredged a deep channel
midstream up river to Branford. This created a passage for the
water that overflowed the river banks to the extent of present Old
Town. The river would be dredged again and again in the future,
but this was the first time. It is recorded that the natives stood on
the banks in fear of this monstrous machine that ran on steam and
made so much noise.
These large beautiful ships gathered again near the Suwannee
ifter the Second Seminole War to transport the natives that had
been captured or had surrendered.
During the later years of. the Nineteenth Century cotton was
king at Branford and livestock, turpentine and citrus was being
gathered at Old Town. These things were transported down river
by smaller vessels and'loaded onto Schooners sailing to the West
ndies.
i With few people living about the Steinhatchee River, for
centuries the river remained dark and'mysterious with only natives
and militaryN records providing any reference to schooners being in
ihe area or anchored in Deadman's Bay. It is believed to be
in% olhed in the slave trade, with the river providing access into the'
'deeper interior and large plantation owners.

Boating Basics: New Tool
Sets For Mariners


This Schooner, made by Gladys Rollinson, is a replica of the
large trade ships that brought items to Dixie County in the
nineteenth century.


(NAPSA)-Oh, buoy! Summer
is here, and for many people, that
means it's time to roll back the
tarp and launch the family skiff.
According to a study by the
National Marine Manufacturers
Association (NMMA), 72 million
people in the United States partic-
ipate in recreational boating and a
total of 17.5 million watercraft
sail our lakes, rivers and oceans,
As every experienced boater
knows, what's endearingly called
"that hole in the water you pour
money into" requires an awful lot
of care to maintain seaworthiness.
Sealing seams, safety checking
equipment and polishing stan-
chions are labors of love for boat-
ing enthusiasts.
As with other sports vehicles,
keeping a boat in tip-top condition
requires a virtual cache of spe-
cialty tools.. First and foremost,
there's the need to stow a set of
rust-resistant handtools housed in
a water-resistant case-with a
typical set including an assort-
ment of hex keys, screwdrivers,
sockets and ratchet handles in
various sizes.' .
For example, a series of four
specialty Great Neck Mariner's
Tool Sets includes tool collections
for powerboats, sail boats, per-
sonal watercraft, and trailer
maintenance and repair, each
housed in a portable, easy-to-stow
waterproof case. Each set contains
a complete assortment of tools,


Keeping your boat shipshape can
be easier and less expensive with
a set of quality tools.
ranging from electrical testers to
spark plugs, for a specific type of
watercraft or conveyance.
"Having a well-stocked tool set
designed for harsh salt air. condi-
tions on board is a must not only
for safety reasons but also for
convenience," said Steve Maltese,
Great Neck Saw's director of
marketing.
Great Neck Mariner's Sets range
from $29.99 to $69.99 and come
with a limited lifetime warranty.
They're carried at Gander Moun-
tain, Marine One, Sportsman's
Warehouse, West Marine, Valor and
other fine retailers nationwide.
The entire Great Neck Saw line
of quality hand tools can be
viewed online at www.greatneck

touch or a glimpse of
divine power, has that
ability to comfort.

Boyd Praises Waste Management Efforts At
Farms In Lafayette And Dixie
LAFAYETTE AND DIXIE COUNTIES-Congressman Boyd this week praised the
advancements being made in dairy clean-up operations after touring farms in Lafayette and Dixie
Counties. Congressman Boyd visited Ricky Lyons' Hog Farm in Lafayette County and Bob
Piechocki's Oak Grove Dairy Farm in Dixie County to see how funds have been used to further
waste management procedures.
"Waste removal can present a serious problem for farmers," said Congressman Boyd.
"Extending waste management programs will help our farmers meet environmental standards while
also increasing their economic
S; productivity. After visiting the
Lyons and Piechocki farms, I
.T' am confident that investing in
new waste management efforts
-. ", .,- will only help our agricultural
'A. / .. "\\l .' producers."

r 'i- ..i iI I.P. surveyed confinement barns at
.. ."- l e Q-- ..'1, Ricky Lyons' Hog Farm in
which waste is being captured
and utilized as fertilizer for
cattle operations. This
standard waste management
procedure helps to prevent
over-application of fertilizer to
ensure that it is being used in
Ronnie Piechocki, Congressman Boyd, Bob Piechocki and Jake an agronomic way.
Martin at Oak Grove Dairy Farm. At Oak Grove Dairy Farm,
waste is stored and composted
into solids that can then be reused as bedding for cows. Oak Grove Dairy saves approximately
$1,600 per week by recycling waste to use as animal bedding due to the fact that sand does not have
to be bought to serve this purpose.
Oak Grove Dairy is one of three designated "enhancement" dairy farms that implement new and
advanced waste managementpractices in order to serve as models for other area dairy farms. As an
enhancement farm, Oak Grove's waste management procedures go above and beyond the
requirements of the Department of Environmental Protection.
"Oak Grove Dairy has taken waste management to an even higher level," stated Boyd. "It is my
hope that area farms will emulate the waste management practices of both Ricky Lyons' Hog Farm
and Oak Grove Dairy, as they are models for effective and progressive waste management
programs. The progress we can make in this area is limitless, and I thank both Ricky Lyons and Bob
Piechocki for their efforts in improving waste management programs."
Congressman Boyd is a member of the Agriculture Subcommittee of the Appropriations
Committee in the House of Representatives. A staunch advocate for farmers and advancements in
agriculture, he secured $1 million in federal funds this year to further waste management efforts for
dairy and poultry farms in Suwannee, Dixie and Lafayette Counties.

New SFCC

Facility Will

Reduce

Shortage Of

Health Workers
A first step toward
alleviating Florida's shortage of
nurses and health care
professionals will be taken at
Santa Fe Community College's
groundbreaking for a new health
sciences annex, 10:30 a.m. Aug.
15 on the college's Northwest
Campus.
The groundbreaking
ceremony will be held at the
construction site near W
Building, the existing health
sciences facility. SFCC
President Jackson Sasser and
District Board of Trustees. Chair
Tom Mallini will give brief
remarks, and a number of local
legislators have been invited.
The facility will increase
Santa Fe's ability to accept
qualified students into its health
sciences programs and help
remedy the state and national
shortage of health care workers,
said Linda Nichols, chair of the
Health Sciences Program at
SFCC.
"Shortages are critical in
nearly every health sciences
field across the country,"
Nichols said. "Locally, with this
addition, we will be able to
produce 50 or 100 more
qualified graduates within a
three-year period, and that will
at least make a dent in the
shortage."
Nichols said the lack of
nurses has worsened since a
"critical shortage" of nurses
averaging 14 percent statewide
affected nearly every hospital in
Florida three years ago.
The new addition will
especially increase the size of
SFCC's nursing program,
allowing it to accommodate
nearly 140 students to make it
the second largest nursing
program among the state's 28
community colleges. The
limited-enrollment nursing
program was only able to accept
120 of 380 applicants this past
year due to a shortage of space,
Nichols said. The expansion also
will allow the Surgical
Technology Program, among
others, to increase its
enrollment.
The 45,000 square-foot
annex will be connected to the
current building by a second-
floor walkway and is scheduled
for completion in 12 months,
said Bill Reese, SFCC's
associate vice president for


Facilities Services.
The construction, which is
the first major expansion project
on the Northwest Campus since
the completion of the college's
Lawrence W. Tyree .Library in
2001, is a $7.3 million addition
that features spacious
classrooms and laboratories.
The blueprints for the
facility were drawn after much
input from health sciences
faculty members, Reese said.
The annex will also include
completely new furniture and
state-of-the-art equipment.
The health sciences annex is
scheduled to open at the start of
the fall 2006 semester.

Ever wonder what those
black., spots are on your cats'
nose and lips? According to
Arnold Plotnick, DVM they
are called "lentigines" and
they appear in orange cats.
These spots may increase in
size and number as the cat
ages. "In cats they occur on
mucous membranes, like the
gums. The cause of this
condition is unknown.
Affected cats are at no
apparent risk to develop other
diseases including melanoma.
These spots are harmless and
no treatment is necessary."

Log Cabin Quilters met
Thurs. Aug. 11th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Today
was show and tell. Goldie Mc
Henry has her "Block of the
Month, "Alice Mae Haire has
finished her red, white and
blue "Dutch Girl" and Doris
Beauchamp took an old "Lone
Star" center and made a
beautiful table cloth. It was
brought in and Doris knew
what she could do with it. The
tops were only pieced to be
about five feet across and we
could tell it was pieced many
years ago.
Greg Stanley was out
Tuesday, and got the yard
mowed, grass out of the
flowerbeds and so much more
with six boys from Lancaster.
It takes so much to keep the
museum looking great and the
boys are .always learning.
Marie Dee Leon keeps all the
crafts straight and in their
place. We appreciate all that's
done here and we couldn't do
it without help.
Lots of quilting goes on
each week and everyone is
busy making crafts for the
show in December.'
Lunch was so good with
onion casserole, corn, rice,
mixed vegetables, kraut,
cheese and ,marconi, jello
salads, apple pie, red cake,
peas and so much more.

Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, Florida Thursday, August 18, 2005


Christina & Jeannette Whitby brought in this week's Dixie Sighting. ',
Beware... it is not for the faint at heart.
Christina was in the yard at her Cross City home when she came upon a gruesome sight...a
snake in the process of devouring a frog. She ran inside and got her Mom who turn around and got
her camera. Both ladies were apprehensive about getting too close to the slithery creature, even
though it could not have done anything do to the fact that it had a large frog sticking halfway out of
its mouth.


Looking on the Internet, I found the following information from the Florida Fish &
website: In Florida, any snake you could describe as "striped" is nonvenomous, and t
familiar are probably the garter and ribbon snakes. These closely related species are comic
variety, of habitats, mostly near water or wet areas. Garter snakes are quite variable in col
may be black, brown or greenish on a background checkerboard of small black spots, a
individuals have three obvious stripes on the back and sides running the length of the bod
stripes may be green, blue, yellow or tan. Garter snakes are-fairly slender; their maximum
about 48 inches, but most are 18-26 inches.
Ribbon snakes are colored similarly to garter snakes, but usually lack the ba(
checkerboard pattern, and the back stripe may be faint or absent. As the name implies, ribbon
are exceedingly slender, and don't grow longer than, 40 inches. They are excellent climbe
taking refuge in low shrubs. .
Large garter snakes may eat small rodents, but their common diet consists of worms, n
frogs and toads. They often are quite aggressive when cornered and expel a foul-smelli.
when handled. Ribbon snakes feed mostly on small fish, frogs and lizards. They are quick
and nervous, preferring to flee when given any chance to do so. Ribbon snakes rarely bite, bi
release a strong-smelling musk when handled. Both species bear
live young.

Real Daughter
By Mike Cassidy
The Dixie Defenders Camp
2086, Sons of Confederate
Veterans, was treated with a
special guest of honor at their
August 9, meeting. The Camp
was delighted to have Mrs.
Virginia Burnett, a "Real
Daughter" of Confederate
Army veteran Pvt. John W.
Bennett. The title "Real
Daughter" is a literal term,
recognizing that Mrs. as
Burnett's father was a veteran
of the War Between the States
(known to many as The Civil
War). Mrs. Burnett's father,
John W. Bennett (also father Virginia Burnett sports her newest medal, "Real Daughter", as the
of the late Frank Bennett) was daughter ofa Confederate Veteran, John W. Bennett she was pre-
a member of Company C, First sented the medal by the Dixie Defenders Camp 2086.
Regiment, South Carolina
Volunteer Infantry. Pvt. Bennett's colorful military history included some very interesting cam-
paigns under well known military leaders, including the campaigns of Fredericksburg, Sharpsburg,
The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold' Harbor, Petersburg, and Appomattox.
The Dixie Defenders Camp 2086 presented Mrs. Burnett with a "Real Daughter" Medal, which
she received with great pride and respect. As the Medal was pinned on, Mrs. Burnett was quick to
say with a stern voice, "money can't buy this", letting all know that she has a deeply rooted and
loyal dedication to her heritage. Camp Commander Joe Sparicino and 16th Brigade Commander,
Earl Green, presented Mrs. Burnett with a Certificate of Recognition, recognizing her as a Real
Daughter. These events were followed up with the Ladies of Camp 2086 presenting a beautiful bou-
quet of red roses, trimmed with red and gray ribbon. It was a joyous occasion for all, as Mrs. Bur-
nett was accompanied by a host of family and friends. It was truly a special event for Dixie Defend-
ers Camp 2086. The Camp would like to thank Mrs. Burnett, and her family for sharing this rich
heritage.
The Dixie Defenders Camp 2086 meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. (6:00
p.m. for dinner) at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Fanning Springs. Camp 2086 strives to share ances-
tral heritage, preserve wholesome core values, and contribute to the community through various pro-
jects. If you have ties to an ancestor that served the Confederate States of America, we welcome you
to join us in the camaraderie and fellowship.
