Cross City Police Apprehend
Suspect Involved
In Multiple Burglaries
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Dan Ross Boyd, 22 of Cross City remains in the Dixie County
Jail where he is being held for the burglary of four vehicles, taking
items that could be sold quickly and ranging from CD players to
revolvers.
Chief of Police Wesley Jones stated that the burglaries began
last week with the first call coming in on August 12th. The CCPD
quickly assembled a Task Force and began working on the case
(day and night until Boyd was apprehended. "I commend my
whole department on their hard work and dedication," stated Chief
Jones "They did not let up until they got the job done."
According to a report filed by Officer John Simmons, once
Boyd broke into the vehicles he began selling the stolen items
around the Cross City area. Investigators were able to trace
Boyd's steps and eventually find witnesses that would identify him
as the seller of the "hot" items.
Boyd was apprehended on August 15th, 2005 and charged with
3 counts of Armed Burglary of Vehicle, 1 count of Burglary of a
Vehicle, and 4 counts of Theft During Vehicle Burglary. Bond was
set at $25,000.


Two Fatally Injured


In Single


Vehicle Accident
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Saturday, August 20th the Florida Highway Patrol and
local emergency personnel were called to the scene of an accident
11.5, miles north of Cross City on US 19 in which both the driver
and passenger were fatally injured.
According to a report filed by FHP Trooper E. Johnson, the
vehicle was southbound on US 19 when the driver, David Carrillo,
27 of Immokalee, ran off the road while going into a turn. Trying
to get back onto the roadway the driver overcorrected and began to
spin, leaving the road once again as it continued to spin until
hitting a tree on the drivers' door. The 2000 Dodge van sustained
heavy crushed damage into the passenger compartment as well.
. Both the driver and passenger Jeffrey Lee Davis, Jr. of Perry were
pronounced deceased at the scene by Dixie EMS.
The victims were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the
crash. A preliminary investigation showed that speed was a factor
in the accident.


Continuing with his strong stance on the
illegal drug use, manufacturing, transportation
and trafficking, Sheriff Dewey Hatcher
contracted with a nationwide expert to conduct a
three day intensive training in Dixie County.
The instructor, Retired Major Ed Delmore, of
Colliinsville, Illinois has over, twenty-two years
in law enforcement. The training was.hosted by
Sheriff Hatcher and included attendees from the
Dixie County Sheriffs Office, Lafayette County
Sheriffs Office, Taylor County Sheriff s Office,
Gainesville Police Department, Cross City
Police Department and the Florida Department
of Corrections.
After two days of Conducting Complete
Traffic Stops classroom* work, nearly three-
dozen officers from five agencies headed out to
U:S. 19 to put their new knowledge into use. By
the end of the training, the officers had issued
53 verbal warnings, 1 written warning, 122
traffic citations and made 14 arrests on a variety,
of charges to include possession of drugs with


Commission Highlights
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
The Board of County
Commissioners met on 0tY O

regular meeting with a full
agenda for the evening. While ",
several zoning issues were
tabled till the next meeting, the 0
Commissioners did approve 9
requests for a minor sub-
division and condominiums. "
The sub-division approved
by the Board is located by the
County Transfer Station, just outside of Cross City and will consist
of 7 lots. The property is owned by Len Beckham and will be
developed by B-III Farms and Properties, LLC.
The condominium plans approved by the Board will be
developed by Royal Coast Condominiums and is located by the
county boat ramp in Jena; one of several condos being built in the
small coastal community.
It is hoped that the new development will bring in much needed
revenue to the county and enhance the area's eco-tourism.
However, it will be up to the Commissioners to make sure that
over development doesn't become an issue and our woodlands,
wetlands, rivers and Gulf are protected.
Dixie Waste announced they will be re-paving the road from
US 19, Airport Road, around to a portion of Rollison Road which
leads into the gasification plant they will be building once permits
from the DEP are issued. While the Commission was working to
secure a grant to help pay for the paving, Dixie Waste decided to
take the project on themselves, including all costs. This was
indeed good news for the Commissioners and a prime example of
.how this new company will be nothing .short of a "win-win"
situation for our community.
Another good piece of news for the Commissioners came by
way of an. update' on the canal dredging project in Horseshoe
Beach. The contractor, Subaqueous out of Orlando will begin
laying pipe from the canal to the spoilage site this week. They have
1.80 days to complete the project, barring any interference with the
current hurricane season.
Commissioner John. Driggqrs introduced Jay Boling of Dixie
Aviation to the Commission. Boling is the new CEO of Dixie
Aviation and a pilot at the Cross City Airport. Boling was excited
about being a part of our area and recently moved to Dixie County.
He outlined a few of the projects that they hope to accomplish over
the next few months and even handled his first complaint from an
audience member over a new $10.00 landing'fee. The fee will be
discussed at the next Airport Committee Meeting.
The next meeting of the County Commission will be held on
Thursday, September 1st at 10:00 am.


intent to distribute, possession of drugs, warrant
arrest and driving while license suspended or
revoked.
According to Sheriff Hatcher, "Everything
that his deputies were taught has been upheld in
the courts and we can already see that this
training works according. to our statistics from
the class." Hatcher also noted that feed back
from the officers in attendance was that the class
was very informative, keeping their attention,
"This was by far the best class that I have
.attended in some time," stated Hatcher.
Major Delmore stated that he was
overwhelmed by the hospitality shown to him.
He also added that he admired Sheriff Hatcher's
commitment to his community. "There .is
something to be said about being pro-active,"
Major Delmore stated.
The training received'this past week will add
one more weapon against crime in our county.
Many thanks to Major Delmore and to the
officers who attended.


Deer Dog Training Season

Nears; Register Your Dogs Now
Hunters who use dogs to hunt deer on private lands in
Florida must now register their deer-dogs for the 2005-06 hunting
season.
This new .statewide, no-cost registration program is not
only mandatory during any open deer-hunting season when taking
deer with dogs is permitted, but also during the upcoming deer-dog
training season.
The deer-dog training season opens Oct.. 1 and runs
through Oct. 20 in the central and south hunting zones. In the
Northwest Hunting Zone, the training season runs Oct. 29 Nov.
17.
Registration may be issued to hunting clubs or
landowners for anyone who wants to hunt deer with dogs on a
particular tract of land. A unique registration number will be
issued from" the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), and that number must be affixed or attached
to the collars of dogs used to hunt deer on registered properties.
To comply with this new rule, a representative from each
hunting club must complete the appropriate application which is
available from regional FWC offices and at MyFWC.com/hunting.
Proof of landowner permission or a copy of the written lease
agreement must be provided along with a general map of the
property showing boundary lines and a legal description.
Hunters must possess copies of their registration while
they are hunting, and they must keep their dogs on registered
properties, as required by the Hunter Responsibility Rule.
"This new statewide registration program is a direct result
of last year's successful pilot program in northwest Florida, where
our commissioners tried to balance the rights of property owners
while preserving the long-standing tradition of deer-dog hunting in
Florida," said Nick Wiley, director of the Division of Hunting and
Game Management.
"Seventy individual properties, representing 55 deer-dog
hunt clubs, participated. Those properties ranged from 40 to
31,000 acres and were situated in 14 of the 16 counties within the
FWC's Northwest Region," Wiley said.
With the pilot program in place, complaints dropped 27
percent, compared to the average of the previous four hunting
seasons. More importantly, only five complaints were associated
with registered deer-dog hunting clubs.
In comparison, a review of last season's complaint data
for the North Central and Northeast regions, where registration was
not required, showed an increase in deer-dog hunting complaints
from the average of the previous four hunting seasons.
For more information on how to register dogs and
property, visit MyFWC.com/hunting.

! Tokyo Rose, Hanoi Jane, and now Cindy
Those of us ancient enough to remember World War II will
recall hearing the name, "Tokyo Rose." Actually, there may have
been several \\omen acting the pan on Japanese radio in an etTort
to demoralize Allied troops during the war in the Pacific. In any
case. it was a propaganda effort that met with very limited
success..
"Hanoi Jane" Fonda's efforts did more damage, not because
I" she was more talented than T-Rose, but because the media treated
her like a super-star, rather than an enemy agent, during the
Vietnam War. Jane's latest project involves a planned tour to sell
her book, undermine the current war effort, and promote the use
of vegetable oil as a motor fuel.
Operation Desert Storm (1991) didn't last long enough for an
anti-war movement to develop, but we'ye sure enough got one
going now. And here's the weird part: With all the Hollywood
celebrities and othei pseudo-intellectual numbskulls of note vying
for attention, the spotlight has recently fallen on a rather ordinary
48 year-old California woman whose son was killed while serving
his country in Iraq early last year.
Cindy Sheehan met with President Bush shortly after her son's
death. She came away' from that meeting with what. appeared to be
a positive outlook, and seemed to be supportive of the President.
But 16 months later, Cindy is demanding another audience with
Bush. She has camped out as close to his Crawford, Texas, ranch
as the Secret Service will permit, and her outlook appears to have
changed radically.
Actually, there's nothing that Cindy Sheehan could possibly
tell President Bush that she hasn't already told the media, who in
turn have gleefully publicized her ever-expanding grievance list
for the entire nation-not to mention Islamic terrorists world--
wide--to peruse. Since the President stays in touch, even while on
S"vacation," he's already heard everything Cindy Sheehan has to
say, no doubt including the content of a speech she gave earlier
this year during a rally at San Francisco State University, vilifying
S the President and certain others in terms that would have made
Howard Stem blush. .. -
Clearly, what Cindy Sheehan has to say is straight out of the
www.moveon.org playbook. She is reportedly being tutored by the
likes of that patron saint of anti-war activism, Michael Moore,
whose only contribution to a conservative cause has been to make
Rush Limbaugh look slender by comparison.
Among.other things printable and otherwise, Cindy has said
the President is personally responsible for the death of her son
and for that, he should pull all personnel out of Iraq, because it's
a war for oil (wonder if she's bought a tank of gas lately), and
then be impeached. But before he is, he should make Israel quit
.being mean to Palestinian terrorists, and after all that,. all
hostilities will suddenly cease.
Oh, by the way, Cindy has stated that she will pay no taxes
until such time as the government of the United States adheres
fully to her anti-war agenda. Last I heard, disagreeing with


government policy did not get you off the hook with the IRS, but
maybe she knows something the rest of us don't.
One can understand a mother's grief at losing a son, however
in recent months, Cindy Sheehan has morphed from grieving
parent to a willing surrogate for the leftist anti-war movement. I
know that sounds cynical, but if her son's death is her principal
motivating factor, why has she seemingly regressed from being
able to deal with it as so many others--including the rest of her
family-have. and throwing in her lot with those \\ho are actually
responsible for her son's death?.
Cindy Sheehan" says the effort in which she is currently
absorbed is not about her. Wrong. It is very much about her,
that's the. way she likes it, and never mind that it serves to
undermine ihe efforts other son's comrades who are still fighting
L a war to defend her right to make a complete ass of herself.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
"Rev213
continued from last week, I the Day of the Lord, say Truly the Lord
hath prepared great and mightly things for His people: things which eye
hath not seen, nor ears heard, and which have not entered into the heart of
man. (lcor.2: 9) If God's true children would only believe this one
scripture with all their hearts, how greatly it would help to release the
riches of heaven and unlock the flood-gates of Glory! I the Day of the
Lord, say We know of course, that Christian every where loudly piofess to
believe this as well as the rest of the Bible; but in actuality they do not
believe it, Yes, they will acknowledge that God has some great and mighty
things prepared for us when we get to heaven, but Paul declares in the
following verse that these unseen unheard-of and unthought -of things are,
"revealed ...by the spirit, and not by way of rapture or death. (vs-10) I
the Day of the Lord, say Once again is the Lord raising up a John the
Baptist ministry to declare that Day of the Lord, and the approaching
Kingdom. Again there is the ** Voice of one crying in the- wilderness.
Prepare Ne the \%ay of the Lord, Again the cry goes forth from God's
anointed ministries everywhere for the. people to assemble, themselves
together in the unity of the spirit, to cast aside their carnal sectarian ways,
and to hear what the spirit saith unto the churches. I the Day of the Lord,
say John on Patmos was caught away in the spirit and heard the words of
One like unto the son of Man calling the seven churches, and the voices"
was a great voice as of a Trumpet," (Rev. 1:10). With clarion call is the
Lord now speaking unto His people through the various ministries which
He hath established in the Body of Christ, calling the assembly together
that they might hear "'%hat the spirit saith unto the churches, I the Day of
the Lord, sa) Not only does this refer to the seven churches of Asia, nor
yet to the seven historical church periods from Pentecost until now- but it
refers to the seven-fold church of this present day and hour. That is to say,
He is addressing the complete church of this day and hour in which we
live, seven being the number of completion. I the Day of the Lord, say
with trumpet voice the spirit called to His people everywhere; to patience
to love to' repent, to endurance, the faith in Christ in the midst of Satanic
opposition, to holiness of life. In this great Day of
Trumpets we should all study carefully the first three chapters of
Revelation, and pay heed to their trumpets-like appeal to the people of
God. Continued next week.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, Florida Thursday, August 25, 2005


Abundant Life & Living
It is good to know God is Father of all the human races, Our
Father which are in heaven., looking after all of us, loving all of
us, keeping all of us, protecting all
of us the same, He is no respecter
of persons. If we are high or low, if
we are rich or poor, in God's sight
we all are His children. We are His
sons and daughters heirs to all He
has, if we obey His leading, if we
don't hear and follow His leading
as dear children, He just might
disinherit us.
I know the big question is, as I
have asked too; Why are some
rich, and some poor?, some hungry
Lucille Stockton an homeless, some have more than
enough provisions? My divine answer came from the (KJV) of
the Holy Bible, St. Matthew 25:15, God.Blesses us according to
our several abilities; if we don't have the ability to type we can't
expect to be paid a typist salary. If we are too lazy to make our
fields double there increase and harvest, we need to work on
improving our abilities, start working on being all we can be,
seek all the knowledge we can find to add to our abilities, stop
blaming others for what we don't have, work at what we do
have, and make it work for us.
"Love Life And Live It."


Card of Thanks

Buddy Martin 's
Weely Sports Commentary
A iule for rulesmakers
Some new rules modifications will be
invoked this in the NFL, but nothing that will
have A major impact on the game. And not very
creative, either.
The rules gurus
decided to address
such issues as
disallowing the
grabbing of the
I inside collar of the
S, back or side of the
shoulder pads,
outlawing the
'*peelback block" by
tackles, making it
illegal to go after
players (especially kickers) after the play has
moved downfield, a new penalty for
challenging a call without any timeouts
remaining, redefining of the pocket area, etc.
They did not, however, address some of
the rules I'd like to see changed. And frankly, I
think they're trying to over-legislate with the
ones they added.
One I'd like to see changed deals with
overtime. Sudden death is far inferior to the
college system, where each team gets a fair
chance from 20 yards out. In the NFL,
overtime is usually decided by the kickoff
return, or lack of, and the losing team's offense
quite often never gets on the field again.
-'he matter of field goals is also a pet
peeve of mine. We can no longer let these
games be decided by chip shots, especially
after the coach stops trying to score a
touchdown once he gets inside the 25-yard
line.
You want fair? Make the rules that if you win
by a field goal in overtime, the other team gets
a shot at it from the same distance.
Personally, I also like the college rule of
stopping the clock after a first down, because it
provides more drama at the end for the team
that is trailing and trying to score.
We don't need more rules, however, we
need fewer. At last count, the rule book was
more than 200 pages. Perhaps what we need is
a rule that would. stop the bureaucrats from
writing anymore rules.
This Just In
Randy Moss says he still smokes
marijuana "every blue moon," He can be
assured of the fact that the NFL will be drug
testing the Oakland Raider wide receiver ever
now and then when the moon is blue, yellow,
green, purple or cheese orange.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. Some days I think USC will repeat as
national champion, other days 1 give
Tennessee. Virginia, Ohio State, Michigan'and
even Florida a shot but I can't recall a season
when there were so many strong contenders.
2. You know it's a slow baseball season when
all the writers have to talk about in late August
is Kansas- City's losing streak and whether Joe
Torre willibe fired.
3. Looking at. this Tampa Bay Bucs schedule
here before me and just can't find more than
eight %% ins if that. ,
-I. There ought to be a law that sa\ s the


From





Can Beo Found


-i The

No two gardi

-Hug


PGA Tour has to stop when football starts.
5. One little tiny reference to the
Internet in the GQ article on Tom Brady and
they made the Boston Herald made the
Patriots' squeaky clean quarterback look like a
porn king.
Short Stuff
As if Bobby Bowden didn't have
enough woes with the Seminoles' nickname
issue, he's also got a quarterback controversy,
,but says he'll start his two young quarterbacks
out even and let either Drew Weatherford or
Xavier Lee earn the job ... When Rex
Grossman went down with a broken ankle, my
pick of Chicago as division champion went
with him.
Nothing But 'Net
(with help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Buddy's E-Mail Bag
Gee Buddy, I woke up Saturday and opened
the sports page and thought I had moved to
Colombia, South Carolina. Earlier in the week
under Gator news it was all about SCU (so our
northern brothers won't get mixed up). I guess
SCU is now Gator Nation North:
I really would, as an SEC fan, appreciate the
same in-depth coverage of all the SEC schools
as you choose to give Stevie boy. I know that is
a pipe dream since I'm lucky to read anything
about the SEC in the good old fish wrapper. I
hope ',the ol' ego coach has finally learned
humility since his little trip to the bigs. I doubt
it though. Let him win a few and he will be as
big a pain as he ever was but at'least he will be
a pain to the Gator Nation.
I do like your Sunday column and keep up the
good work.
Go Dawgs! (you had to know that was
coming).
Bulldawg Bob Harman, Punta Gorda
BULLDOG BOB: Fair enough, Bob, but
remember, Spurrier is on Georgia's schedule,
too. And last week Lou Holtz predicted "SCU"
was going to beat your Dawg on Sept. 10.

STEINHATCHEE FISHING REPORT
by Capt. Brian Smith
Feeling Small
Monday Lil B and I had a party of six locked
in battle with the 'reef donkeys', a.k.a. amberjack.
Strangely,
a c t i v i t y
ameliorates the
discomfort of
August heat. .
Somehow the
buck of any fish
can make one
' forget their brain
is baking inside .'
their bone
bucket. On the
port side, one of
the fellows had
his live bait get --
frantic. A AIX-
second later the ':
little fish was
given a mouth
ride by an energetic amberjack. After a minute or so
of rough tussle, the amberjack was given a mouth
ride by a goliath grouper. "I'm hung up!" Lil B
went over and pulled some serious tugs and gave a
puzzled look. "The fish is still on there, I can feel
it" said Lil B. After handing the rod and reel back,
more heaving tugs were applied until miraculously
the big jew fish coughed up the amberjack.
"Alright! Oh no..." The amberjack was whisked
away to the bow, under the anchor rope and one
hundred yards off the starboard bow. Lil B had
jumped to the bow and passed the rod under the
anchor line and handed if back. I stood on the bow
and watched the line rise in the water. A triangle fin
came up. A big fin! It cruised, at will, left and right.
During the twenty minute tug of war, I had time to
think. Why hasn't that huge shark cut the fish in
half or parted the monofilament leader? Then the
rod snapped straight and the line slacked. Relief and
let down at the same time. We watched as the head
was reeled in from some seventy five yards out. As
the head became visible a large brown submarine
mass came from behind and took it. Ten more
minutes of unwanted struggle and the line finally
gave way.
Well, well, well, that was entertaining for all
of us. "Let's do it again,, but this time let's be
equipped to handle the job." Lil B put a fish carcass
out on a string as chum as I rigged a mongoo' 9/0
reel, spooled with 200 pound test, with a cabled
'meat' hook and hung a half an amberjack on it.
The bait made a big splash and sank as it floated
back behind the boat. I set the reel drag tight but not
locked down (I mistakenly had a mongo reel locked
down in the past and found out fiberglass breaking
is like fingernails across a chalkboard), put the
clicker on and set the monster trap in the stem rod


holder. Twenty five minutes passed with nothing
happening. Then a shadow appeared deep off the
stem. And nothing happened! After a few long
minutes, Lil B lost patience and grabbed the rod and
started jerking and reeling. Just as we could start
seeing the bait come up, it disappeared in the
cavemess mouth of a brown submarine.
Bang,
bang ,
",. bang, the
hook was
set and
the rod
-passed
off. For
t w eng t yo

minutes
the war
was on.
sitThe two
hundredd
pound
test, beef
stick rod,
with a full load of determination lead an eight foot,
200 pound plus bull shark to the port gunnel for a
Kodak moment.
I had a moment of insanity. The hook was
slightly lodged in the right jaw and my mind said
silently 'Hey, Brian that hook cost three bucks; get it
back'. And I reached down. But before my hand
had touched the water, the shark turned, opened its
mouth and my body took over for itself. My hand
had taken itself behind my back. Lil B cut the cable
with bolt cutters and the big mama slipped back into
the depth.
WOW! That was awesome. Not only the
battle, which was amazing, but just watching such a
magnificent fish function in its environment. The
thirty two by twelve foot fiberglass environment we
were on seemed pitifully small. The vastness.of the
water and the size and grace of the creatures therein
can pop a pride bubble if you think about it, even
briefly.
Scallopers are gleeful. Limits are common
on the grass beds north of the river. Just look for the
flotilla. Be careful those are live moms and dads
and children and grandparents and an occasional
dog bobbing around those boats and they don't fair
well against hard boat hulls and motor props. I
mean, what's the rush anyway? Slow down and
enjoy a family day on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
Thanks for reading and take care of yourself
and the tackle.
Capt B
Science, art, and magic are all good; a fishing
attitude that squeezes out any of them is the worse
for it.

Bears Win In Kick-Off Classic


Bear fans and players alike left the field in Trenton last
Friday night with smiles from ear to ear when the Bears
defeated the Trenton Tigers 20-14 in an overtime victory. With
11.32- left in the opening quarter, Trenton recovered their own
fumble runningoit it ito the end zone for the first TD of the
game. However, that score was called back on a penalty, but it
didn't deter the Tigers because with 10:35 left on the clock in
the first quarter they scored first on the night. They kicked the
extra point giving he Tigers a 7-0 lead over the Bears.
When the Bears got possession of the ball, they scored on a
30 yard pass from quarterback Robert Yarrell to Cory Land.
The extra point attempt by Micah Cassidy was good, leaving
the score tied ac 7 all.
With 3:05 to go in the first quarter, Dixie County faked a
punt, picking up a first down. In the second quarter they were
able to move the ball once again into the end zone on a 6 yard
run by Terrance George., The extra point attempt by Micah
Cassidy was good, giving the Bears a 14-7 lead.
A 60 yird punt return for the Tigers set them up to score on
the next play as they ran the ball into the end zone for a
touchdown. Their extra point was also good, tying the game up
at 14 each.
With 7:58 remaining in the game, the Bears got possession
of the ball but were plagued by a number of penalties. After a


good run by Rodney Scott the Bears picked up a first down
only to fumble the ball, allowing Trenton to gain possession.
A great boost for the Bears came when Cory Land sacked
Trenton's quarterback with 4:25 minutes left on the clock. The
Bears gained possession of the ball with 2:25 left on the clock
but were unable to muster up any offense and had to punt the
ball with 25.7 seconds left on the clock. Trenton was unable to
score as time expired, sending the game into overtime.
During the overtime period, each team is gets possession of
the ball on the ten yard line and has four attempts to place the
ball in to the end zone. With the scored tied at 14 a piece,
Dixie County got possession of the ball first and managed to
move the ball into the end zone with a touchdown run by A. J.
Land. This gave the Bears a 20-14 lead. The PAT was no
good.
Trenton then received the ball on the 10 yard line and had
an incomplete pass on the first down. They advanced
approximately two yards on their next play and on their third
down Jacob Evans managed to bring the runner down for a loss
of yardage. On the Tiger fourth down play, the Bear defenders
successfully stopped the Tiger runner to seal the victory for the
Bears.
In a conversation with Coach Wilkerson on Tuesday, he
stated that he was extremely proud of his young team. He was

he gains yardage for the Bears last Friday night.

proud of the intensity that they played with, but also stated
that they would certainly have to tackle better to snatch a win
from Chiefland this Friday night.
Wilkerson also said that he was proud of Guy Anderson's
run during the game and Jerrell Tyson was the initial Bear
defender in stopping the Tigers on their fourth down attempt.
Cory VanAemam also had some good runs for the Bears.
Quarterback Robert Yarrell made some very impressive plays
on the field last week also.
Coach Wilkerson also invites everyone to travel to
Chiefland Friday night to see the Bears take on the Indians for
the first time in several years.

JUNIOR VARSITY GAME In the first half the Junior
Varsity team lost to Trenton 6-0. With 2.52 left in the first
quarter, the Bears fumbled the ball and allowed Trenton to
recover the fumble, and score. The extra point attempt was no
good. The Bears were on a roll, moving the ball down the field
when they fumbled the ball with 1:08 left on the clock, leaving
them helpless as Trenton recovered the ball and ran out the
clock.

SVP Presents Monologues & Dialogues
Suwannee Valley Players announces a very special opening
season event of Monologues and Dialogues from an array of'
comedies and dramas with a sprinkling of songs from various
musical productions for one weekend only. This unique composite,
tied together in a coffee shop setting complete with drinks and
pastries for all, includes a few tidbits from our upcoming season,
as well as some select scenes with a powerful edge from shows
that have never been locally staged.
Suwannee Valley Players wants to fill the seats of the theatre
for our opener, and so we are asking only for a token donation at
the door of $5.00 for an evening like no other we have done
before. Quite a bargain!
There will be only three performances over the one weekend of
August 26-28, 2005, Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 8
p.m. and Sunday matinee beginning at 2:30 p.m. All productions
are held at the Chief Theatre, 25 E. Park Avenue, Chiefland.

DEF News
2005 DCHS graduates are
busy enrolling, moving,
scheduling and preparing to
further their education. With
the help of many generous
donors, the Dixie Education
Foundation, Inc. is proud to be
a part of the financial
assistance for our students.
This year 83 scholarships,
valued at more than $50,000,
were awarded to DCHS
seniors. Additionally several
2004 graduates are using
remaining monies from their
scholarships for summer and
fall classes, or certificate
programs. We congratulate
these students on their
commitment to gaining
knowledge and increasing their
skills.
The Foundation is also in
the process of preparing and
awarding two different
instructional grants. By joining
with the Coalition of Florida
Education Foundations,
Citigroup cticgroup- will
be awarding two grants of
$500 each to a team at both
Old Town and Anderson
Elementary Schools. The focus
of this program is to assist new
teachers by matching them
with a veteran teacher for a
project of their -own design.
Funds from Progress Energy
Foundation will also be made
available soon to assist with
achieving a degree in teaching.
Details and application
packages will be available
soon.
The volunteer members of
the Dixie Education
Foundation, Inc. are working
to better the education of our
students and no scholarship
monies are used for
administrative expenses of the
Foundation.
