Cross City Convenience

Store Held Up...Suspect

Still On The Loose


Police are still looking for the suspect that robbed the
Station off US 19 in Cross City last Thursday.


Chevron


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On Thursday, September 22, 2005 the Cross. City Police
Department was dispatched to the Chevron Station off US 19
around 9:15 PM, where a robbery had occurred. According to
CCPD Investigator Bobby Owens, a male wearing a stocking and
clothing covering his body entered the store and demanded th.t the
cashier hand over the money. At one point, he allegedly pushed
one of the two clerks manning the store, at which time she handed
him the deposit bag with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect ran out of the store, towards the- back of the E i
Dorado Motel. Cross City Correctional Institute K-9 Unit as
called to the scene, but lost the trail on Camp Street. Investigators
believe the suspect had a vehicle waiting for him at the location
where the trail ended. The Dixie County Sheriffs Office also
aided in the search for the suspect that continued throughout the
evening.
The suspect reportedly did not have a weapon and fortunateI.
no one was hurt. Only the two clerks on duty were in the store at
the time of the robbery.
If you have any information regarding this theft,iplease contact
Investigator Owens at 498-3507, extension 2.

County Reopens Boat Ramp

Plans For Pier & Commercial Dock In The Works
p e Di ,_ C" R r By Terri Langford Staff Writere
l.o..:. ..- ciB (/ se o oiWith the selling of local
marinas throughout our coastal
communities to developers, the'
gCommissioners have been,
concerned about the loss of
public boat ramps. With that in'
mind, Dixie County Reef
v Coordinator, David Osteen,
began working on restoring a
county ramp that is currently
Se lt o e r covered by a closed clamming
nursery in Horseshoe Beach.
V even Osteen has taken the project-an
step further and has applied for
-a grant that would allow the
-hcounty to build a fishing pier
,_.asand commercial dock as well.
According to Osteen, the
A- -,concrete boat ramp is 12 feet'
W .' wide and in excellent condiftior i.
'-: ;-. :-"- --- "T. he property (46" x 64") that'
the ramp is built on was
S-. donated to the County in- 1959
.-- '"" '=,by Chris and Helen Andefsont.
Once the clam nursery is
Storn down the county cant go ifi
and clean out the built up silt.
The clam nursery was
Constructed shortly after thle het
ban went into effect, hoping to
give fishermen another means
in, which to make a living.
After a few years the -nurser'y
became ineffective whefi
Ell, competitors could grow the,
.seeds cheaper. Pollution also
'. .. ... '. ..became a problem and
clammers closed the operation.
Top picture David Osteen, CpuntrY Reef Coordinator, points out an existing boat ramp housed under a Billy Cherry will be removing
closed clanturs'rr in lorsieha ': Below (li) Osteen shows the approximate height of a proposed h ildinforthmaterial
fishing pier and on the right i. where a proposed caomnit'17 fishing docA H'ould be constructed if the building for the material
funding becomes available. Pumps and other costly
equipment were moved years
ago and are being stored.
Once up and operational, the County will need to do regular maintenance on the ramp. Prior to its closing, the ramp was cleared of
built up silt every two to three months. The reason for the build up is due to the fact that it sits on the windward side of the channel.
The removal of the sand should not pose a problem with the county spoilage site in place at Horseshoe Beach.
Looking at the ramp from the road out to the Gulf, it is on the right of the ramp that the County hopes to build a 14' x 150' fishing
pier. The pier will be built five to six feet above the seawall in order to prevent any damage from storm surge. Research shows that,
such a foundation would be able to withstand a cat 3 or less hurricane.
On the left of the ramp the County hopes to secure enough funds to build a dock for commercial fishermen to load and unload. They
might even be able to rent mooring space as well, making it convenient for the fishermen and give the County funds to help maintain the
dock.
The County is also looking at charging non-residents for fishing privileges on the pier. Again, it would help with maintenance
costs. See "RAMP" continued page 2


FWC Commissioners Consider

Mufflers & More For Airboats
,1p The Florida Fish and
.-4" Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) recently
directed staff to draft a new
policy that would require
airboats to be equipped with
mufflers. According to FWC's
Maj. Jim Brown, flex pipe
alone no longer is acceptable to
help reduce sound levels. The
final hearing on the policy will
r m be at the Commission's Nov.
.... 30 Dec. 1 meeting in Key
now,!: -' ..1 Largo.
.7R 'N'V Commissioners also want
staff to hold an additional
workshop with stakeholders to
discuss implementing a muffler
policy, written code of ethics
and guidelines for courteous
airboat operation. The FWC
already has installed mufflers
on all of its airboats and
established guidelines for
courteous airboat operation.
The decision to require
:V mufflers on airboats came after
a presentation today by Dr.
-Stewart Glegg, a researcher at
Florida Atlantic University
Engineering Department,
whose- group researched
V..airboat sound and produced a
report on its findings for the
Toppicture is ofa FWC airboat beingfittedfor muffler at Freedom FWC. Other experts have
Craft airboat manufacturer in Cross City. Below is a close up view reviewed the report, titled
of the muffler system. "Measurement and
iCharacterization of Sound Generated by Airboats," to ensure the study can stand up to public
scrutiny and provide fully credible, objective and science-based solutions aimed at reducing airboat
sound levels.
Currently, under Florida Statute 327.65, all vessels must be muffled effectively in a reasonable
manner. The law also provides additional language that allows individual counties to restrict vessel
sound to 90 decibels at 50 feet, but that is not a statewide requirement.
Both the propeller and the engine contribute to the sound airboats produce. At low revolutions
per minute (rpm) the engine produces the most sound, but at higher rpms the loudest sound is from
the propeller. See "MUFFLER" continued page 5


Dixie County High Student Arrested

After Bringing Gun To School
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Tuesday, September 27th, a Dixie County High School student was arrested after a
.357 mg Cal Ruger with a 6" barrel was found in his possession while he was on campus.
According to a report filed with the school's Resource Officer, Deputy P. J Hope, school officials
were given an anonymous tip that an unknown person had a weapon and was carrying it around on
school grounds.
An investigation lead Deputy Hope to a while/male juvenile. The suspect told officials he
brought the gun on a dare and also because he had been harassed and even threatened by several
other students.
The gun was found in the suspects back pack. The gun was not loaded and no bullets were found
elsewhere.
The defendants' parents were notified as well at the Department of Juvenile Justice who
transported the youth to the Juvenile Detention Center in Gainesville.
According to school policy, the student will be automatically expelled until the School Board can
hear the case and decided on whether the expulsion should stand.

Give it up, Al
With the arrival of Rita and perhaps some of her siblings on
the way, now is perhaps not the ideal time to re-invoke Katrina;
however it wasn't entirely my idea. It seems Robert Kennedy Jr.
isn't the only environmental wacko who is blaming the
meteorological nemesis of the Big Easy on "global warming," and
therefore on President George W. Bush, who invented the
phenomenon by refusing to sign the Kyoto Treaty.
Lining up with Kennedy (probably several of them, actually),
is former Vice-President Al Gore, still smarting from the loss of a
close presidential election nearly five years ago. Since Al has
admitted to inventing the Internet, it seems reasonable that
George W. should admit to inventing global warming., Well,
doesn't it?
Speaking of the Internet, you might want to check out
townhall.com, that being where I found a column by Emmett
Tyrrell, whose efforts called my attention to much of what follows.
It seems Al was joining a gaggle of environmentalists, along
with assorted other liberal activists, in calling down the wrath of
Mother Earth on those negligent capitalists who allowed the
levees that protect New Orleans to degenerate to the point that
they wouldn't even hold up under a storm surge that accompanied
a category 4 hurricane.
Al Gore's original schedule had him going to New Orleans to
deliver his dissertation, but Katrina got there first, so he went to
San Francisco instead. Well, why not? What safer place for a
liberal? And if perchance an earthquake were to strike, there
would always be Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to blame.
What was wrong with San Francisco (among other things) is
a) Al's forum was a gathering of the Sierra Club, and b) he
launched into a tirade about how government had not done
enough to protect New Orleans from the high waters that turned
the city into Lake Pontchartrain south.
Now, why on earth would the Sierra Club object to such senti-
ments? One might suppose that nearly all of them voted for Al in
2000. He was their kind of guy. Anyone who doesn't like the
internal combustion engine ought to get along just great with the
Sierra Club.
Only trouble is, the Sierra Club was at the forefront of a legal
maneuver to prevent a project by the Army Corps of Engineers to
raise and strengthen the levees protecting New Orleans way back
in 1996--when, incidentally, Al was VP under Bill Clinton and
presumably in tune with the priorities of the Sierra Club at that
time.
Considering the fact that the levees almost withstood Katrina
in their existing condition, it seems altogether reasonable to
believe that a significant improvement nine years ago would have
prevented the massive destruction that occurred when Katrina hit.
Quoting Mr. Tyrrell, "Now, because those who would have
improved hurricane protection in New Orleans were prevented by
the environmentalist rigorists, the wetlands are polluted and
imperiled and New Orleans has suffered the damage that practical
minds have-been trying to prevent for three decades."
When Jimmy Carter lost the 1980 election, he pretty much
stayed out of politics for about 20 years, which was just fine,
because by the time he started chiming in again, not much of
anybody cared.
If Al Gore stays his course, he won't have to wait nearly that
long to become irrelevant.

several ideas that may help.
Cost for the pier and dock project will run approximately

Letter to the Editor
As a Dixie County resident I try to purchase in Dixie County as
much as possible. I do not buy gasoline in Dixie County and
especially Old Town. Today, 9/23/05, the national average for
gasoline is $2.74. The price in Old Town is $2.94.
If everyone in Dixie County bought gas out of county perhaps
our good neighbor owners of the stations would just leave town.
We don't need them.

MN 9 Rules for Safety
1 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.
2 1 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
people when going places or play-
ing outside. I always use the
"buddy system."
4 Isay 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.
t 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 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.
7I can keep asking until I get the help
I need.
I 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.

"MUFFLER"
Continued from page 1


This report suggests that mufflers do reduce
airboat sound levels at moderate operating
speeds, but even muffled boats exceed 90
decibels at maximum throttle. However, airboat
operators generally don't run at maximum
throttle for long periods.
Researchers examined sound levels
produced from. different styles of mufflers,
including both exhaust and intake manifold
mufflers, and differing propeller designs,
operating speeds, and distances from an
observer. They believe that each of these
components, used together, could provide the
needed "incremental improvements" to reduce
airboat sound levels significantly.
Historically, most law enforcement agencies
have accepted "flex pipe" (flexible tubing that
diverts engine exhaust to behind the boat) as a
reasonable device for muffling sound. It doesn't
muffle as effectively as a traditional muffler, but
20 years ago, nobody really complained since
airboats generally ran in remote areas.
"However, times have changed, and the
sound of airboats on lakes, rivers and wetlands
has become a controversial subject in Florida in
recent' years," Brown said. "Increased
development in these areas, in part, has resulted
in increased sound complaints from
homeowners and outdoor enthusiasts."
In 2003, the Florida Legislature considered a
bill to restrict airboat sound levels statewide to
90 decibels at 50 feet. At the time, the Senate
Natural Resources Committee amended the bill
and proposed to give the FWC rulemaking
authority to adopt a uniform municipal code to


resolve the airboat sound issue.
However, instead of the
forward, legislators asked the

public workshops to get citizen feedback about
airboat sound and work out a non-regulatory
solution to the problem. The agency hosted
three such workshops in September 2003, and
about 300 people attended and provided
comments.
Although the meetings failed to produce any
consensus on whether Florida needs new airboat
sound laws, two proactive themes emerged:
airboats should have effective mufflers, and air
boaters should follow a code of ethics.
A subcommittee of the state's Boating
Advisory Council a group appointed by the
governor to advise the FWC and the Florida
Department of Community Affairs on boating
and waterway-related issues -- developed the
Airboater Code of Ethics. The .council is
representative of the boating public, and the
subcommittee included individuals from airboat
manufacturers, personal watercraft industry,
sportsmen groups, the boating public and an
affected waterfront property resident.
The FWC is developing an outreach
campaign to encourage airboaters to apply new
and improved technology for quieting airboats.
The campaign also will encourage changes in
airboater attitudes and operating procedures to
be sensitive to others who live around or share
the waterways.
Locally, the folks at Freedom Craft airboat
manufacturers stated that it would be wise for
all airboat owners to go ahead and get fitted for
a muffler. Currently they are in the process of
fitting several FWC boats. If you are found not
to have a system on your boat you will be fined
$150.00, no exceptions.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER

Cross City Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above
Drinking Water Standards.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an
emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should
do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we
received on 7/07/05 show that our system exceeds the standard, or maximum contaminant
level (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts which include Total Trihalomethanes. The
standard for Total Trihalomethanes is. 080 mg/L. The level of Total Trihalomethanes was
found at. 140 mz/L.
The standard for HaloaceticAcids is .060mg/1. The level of Haloacetic Acids was found at -
.091 mg/l.
What should I do?
You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply.
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over
many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system,
and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing Haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL
over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified
immediately. However, Some people who drink water containing Disinfection Byproducts
in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys,
or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

What happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the
water
and creates the Disinfection Byproduct.
What is being done?
The Cross City Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & The Department
of Environmental Protection to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving this issue within
the next 12 months.

For more information, please contact Ferrell 'Cricket' Spurlin @ (352) 498-5488 or Mike
Cassidy @ (352) 498-3079. Town of Cross City P.O. Box 417 Cross City, F1 32628.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially
those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments,

Abundant Life & Living


Cross City and Dixie County are blessed and highly favored
by God:. I appeal to the Righteous, anointed ones to stay
divinely focused, don't become lax
and complacent, God has smiled
on us for many years. Someone is
pleasing God in this City. Let's
keep our prayer forces together
ready and strong that we can ward
off evil and destruction from our
SM city. Bible history states in the 18th
chapter of Genesis, God would
a 1 have spared the wicked City of
Sodom and Gomorrah if Abraham
could have found ten (10)
righteous men. He couldn't find
Lucille Stockton ten righteous men in that City- God
allowed it to be destroyed. History only states Men: I assume

there were many righteous women in the city, but at that time in
Bible history; many of the women were workers, housekeepers
and mothers only and not heard. Thank God for Jesus who

came and set all of the human family free, that we all might have
life more abundantly with no discrimination in the Hold Spirit.
If we are born again we are sisters and brothers in Christ. Sons
aid daughters of God. God's loving children, His holy family.
Free to speak.

The Word Made

Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"


Continued from last week. I
the son of man, say Every man as
to his spirit is consociated with
His like in the spiritual world, and
is as one with them; and it has
often been given me to see in
societies the spirits of men still
living some in angelic societies
and some in infernal; and I have
also been permitted to converse
with them for days, and have
wondered that man himself while
he lives in his body should know
nothing about this other life. From
this it' was manifest that whoever
denies God, is already among the
condemned and after death is
gathered to his own
I, the son of man, say the
human mind is capable of being'
elevated above the sensual things
which are in the thoughts from the
senses of the body, and that when
it is elevated it sees- those things
which are of life above, and those
things which are of nature below?
What else is life but love and
wisdom? And what else is nature
but their receptacle, by which they
may work their effects or uses?
Can these be one except as
principal and instrumental are?
Can light be one with the eye, or
sound with the ear? Whence are
the sensations of these but from
life? Whence their forms but from
nature?
I, the son of man, say what is
the human body but' an organ of
life? Are not all things and
everything therein organically
formed for producing those things
which the love wills and the
understanding thinks? Are not the
organs of the body from nature,
and love and thought from life?
And are not these wholly distinct
from each other?
I, the son of man, say Elevate
the keen sight of your genius yet a
little higher, and you will see that
it is of life to be affected and to
think, and that i s of love to be
affected, and of wisdom to think
and both are of life; for, as just
said, love and wisdom are life.
I, the son of man, say if you
elevate the faculty of
understanding a little higher still
you will see that love and wisdom
do not exist unless their origin is
somewhere, and that their origin is
Love, itself and Wisdom itself and
thence Life itself; and these are
God from whom nature is. The
one God is substance itself and
form itself, angels and men are
substance and forms, from Him;
this form is the Human itself, that
is that God is very Man. Love you,
continued next week.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"Jerusalem, Old And New"
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, says Isaiah also say
that in this Jerusalem, "They shall beat their swords into plowshares and
their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against
nation, neither shall they learn war any more." -
I the Day of the Lord, say in other words that destructive elemenitI
carnal man is destroyed and a spirit of helpfulness fills that plac, Ye$ eti.
all takes place in the heart of our inner man when the King domes inri.;Tat
desert place is filled with the water of life and begins to produce the loel'1y
growth of things of the Spirit that bring happiness and helpfultfegs
wherever they touch.
I the Day of the Lord, say Isaiah also says that in this new Jerusalepn
that God was going to create, "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock." (Isa 65:25) I have head
literal vision teachers of the word also put that out in the future because:it
has not literally happened yet.
I the Day of the Lord, say look at its spiritual meaning! A wolf would,
destroy a lamb; so would a wolf-like spirit destroy a lamb-like spirit. But
God tames such spirits and they can feed together in His holy mountain.
Take a look at the apostle Paul before he was "tamed" by the Lord. Ile
was persecuting the church and putting the members in prison. So they
feared his devouring, wolf-like spirit.
I the Day of the Lord, say But after God tamed him on that trip to
Damascus we find them addressing him a "brother Paul", and from that
time on they fed together in God's holy mount. Yes, in this blessed new
Jerusalem the wolf and the lamb feed together, and "the lion eat straw like
an ox." The old lion, in his natural state eats flesh and blood. So the lion
spirit is a destroying spirit, but when God recreates it, giving it his nature,
then it no longer destroys by feeding on flesh and blood, but "eats straw
like an ox." They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith
the Lord.
I the Day of the Lord, .say Please do not remain blind, holding tor.a
literal interpretation of God's spirit-word, and miss it's rich and glorious
meaning, and the inheritance that goes with it! He is talking about
something far greater than literal things. Continued next week.

Calvary Temple Church News
Our radio program called "A Voice From Calvary" will begin
airing on Monday, October 3rd on 91.5 FM twice each day
Monday-Friday, 9:30 AM and 5:30 PM. We would love for 3 ou to
join us each day for a special time of ministry.
One of the things we would like to do in the future is pro\ ide
area Christian ministers who pastor a local church the opportunity,
to do a program on occasion (free of charge). This would provide
them the opportunity to not only share the gospel, ,but to also
promote their local church.
As always, the heart of Calvary Temple is not to build a
personal church Kingdom, but to build the Kingdom of God.
Looking for a place to worship God? A church that offers equal
opportunity for each of its members?
Calvary Temple may be the church that you are lookingfor.
-Sunday 10:30 AM and Wednesday 7:00 PM: Pastors Jim and
Marion Hurst along with the entire fellowship invite you to join u.

Bathroom Mold & Mildew Prevention Tips


"" (NAPS)-Planining to
redecorate your bathroom?
WhilI you select-your paint
'' color, why not think about
preventing one of the most
common problems you can
experience in a bathroom-
mold & mildew growth.
Cleaning can remove it, but
the trick to controlling mold
& mildew growth is to pre-
vent it before it starts. And
there is no better time to do
so than at redecorating time!
Follow these mold & mildew
prevention "tips" from the
experts at ZINSSER while
you redecorate:
Keep airflow constant.
The combination of hot show-
ers in small spaces creates
an ideal environment for the
growth of mold & mildew.
Consider installing an ex-
haust fan, ceiling fan or
replacing solid doors with lou-
vered ones to improve venti-
lation in your bathro:)m They
can I crease -,artlov. and -ig-
ruficantly impede the growth


If you don't neuter your dog
you'll have more than
a "three-dog-night9"!


of mold & mildew. If installing
a fan isn't in your budget,
leaving your bathroom win-
dow slightly open when you
shower can help airflow.
Eliminate moisture.
Stagnant water produces
moisture in the air and cre-
ates an ideal environment for
the growth of mold & mildew.
Limit excessive moisture by
using a dehumidifier and by
wiping down shower walls
after each use.
Clean infected areas.
Wipe bathroom surfaces with


a simple solution of one-cup
household bleach to:, one gal-
lon of water and rinse thur-

Buddy Martin's
Weekly Sports Commentary
Knowing when the
job is done
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- In the Steve
Spurrier school of offensive football, you can
never have too
many points.
The flip side
f. of that is if you
i Mleave your starters
in too long, you
might wind up
hating yourself
's when one of them
^' '# gets injured. Urban
Meyer, after
watching his team
score a remarkable
seven straight unanswered touchdowns. against
Kentucky Saturday, tried to save some in the
tank for Alabama next week.
They should have invoked the 42-point
rule at the half, with the Gators leading 49-7.
But they did not, and so Meyer yanked his
starters after the first series of the second half.
He left the door cracked and the Wildcats stuck
a paw in it, clawed back to make it 49-28. The
only people in the world besides Kentucky fans
who cared were the gamblers, who if they laid
the 22 ? points, must have spent their winnings
prematurely at the half.
Kentucky never really had a chance to
beat Florida, but this downtrodden, thrice-
beaten, often shaken and stirred college
football team fought back. It was embarrassing
to Meyer and the defense that ranked No. 1 in
the Southeastern Conference especially when
he had to put his first team back in the game
with just over six minutes to play.
"They are still an SEC team and they
came back liked that on Louisville," he said
after his fourth win of the season. "There's
some fight (in Kentucky). I know .their coach
and I'm proud of him."
Well, Meyer' might be the only person
proud of Rich Brooks, whose job is very much
at stake after only winning seven games here.
Of course the Gator coach was trying to put the
best spin possible on it.
"It's a thin line," Meyer said of-when to
pull his starters, just confirming what he'd
thought all along about the lack of depth -- "we
, need a couple of good years of recruiting."
Oddly enough he said that on a day when his
backup receiver, Jemalle Cornelius, playing
for the injured Andre Caldwell, put up more
yardage receiving in a day that he had posted
his entire career: 8 catches for 138 yards.,
For two quarters, quarterback Chris
Leak had The Big Orange Machine on cruise
control, producing scoring drives of 70 yards
on 9 plays, 87 yards on 12 plays, 72 yards on 4
plays, 29 yards on 7 plays, 58 yards on 5 plays
and 30 yards on 2 plays.
In the first half, along, quarterback
Leak lit up Commonwealth Stadium with four

touchdown passes and 298 yards in the air.
Tailback DeShawn Wynn did a little lighting,
too, with four touchdowns one on a pass from
Leak and three more rushing.
"Chris Leak was terrific. I thought this
was the best he's thrown the ball I'm very
happy with the way he's taking care of the
ball," said Meyer.
I So Florida goes to 4-0 with the victory
over the hapless Wildcats, but what does it all
mean for the Gators as a prelude to their game
in Tuscaloosa against unbeaten Alabama?
After Monday night's LSU-Tennessee
game, the picture will be even clearer.
This much is already clear: Meyer has
Florida's football program on the move again,
possibly traveling to heights not seen in these
parts in nearly a decade
Quick Jump Starts
1. OK, who would have thought that
among Big 10 teams now that Penn State,
Indiana, Michigan State, Wisconsin and
Minnesota would have been unbeaten by now,
but Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue and Iowa
would all have at least one loss?
2. You take a look at the beautiful
rolling hills in Lexington, Ky., a clean and
friendly town, and you wonder why it's so
tough for the Wildcats to recruit outstanding
football players.
3. Goodbye and good riddance, Rafael
Palmeiro.
4. Hey, let Robby Gordon keep on
throwing his helmet at competitors' cars and
pretty soon NASCAR will have some WWF
sizzle to juice ratings even more like they
need it.
5. -I'd have loved to have seen the SEC
call Phil Fulmer's bluff about threatening to
forfeit before letting his Tennessee team play
football Saturday night in Baton Rouge, but in
reality, getting out of Rita's way and playing
Monday night was a good decision.
Short Stuff,
Rich Brooks' record is now 7-20 and
the fact that in those years the Wildcats beat
those seven teams, their victims had a
combined record of 8-49 doesn't bode well .
Florida went into the game Saturday as the
SEC'S seventh ranked team in passing and
total offense and first in defense but those
stats will change after Saturday's offensive
explosion by UF.

Bears Burn Devils In


Williston
By John Kelley
The Bears traveled to Williston Friday night for a heated match against the Williston Red
Devils. hi a close hard fought game, the Bears took home the win 10-7. Dixie County came out in
the first half looking rather flat against the Devils both offensively and defensively. The Bears
racked up eight penalties before the end of the second quarter and allowed the Devils to score the
first seven points of the game. Despite allowing the Williston team to score, Hal Chaires played
well in the first half with several sacks on the Devil QB and Declan Meoller had a key fumble
recovery. Noticeably absent were Yarell and Cassidy who were sidelined with minor injuries from
last week.
During the second half the Bears started to "get right". Earl. Aikens handled a couple of
interceptions and sacked the Devil quarterback in the end zone for a safety. This put two points on
the board for the Bears. Pinner going to VanAernam, Scott and George on an 11 play drive scored
with Scott, in a fifteen yard scamper into the end zone. Dixie County took the lead with 3:30 left
to play. Earl Aikens wrapped it up with an interception during the final seconds to take away any
chance for the Devils to come back.
In the post game huddle, Coach Wilkerson told the team that they finally wore Williston out
during the fourth quarter. Wilkerson said to the team "We are going to have to play with more
intensity next week. Next weekstarts what we really are going after, the championship."
Wilkerson also had this to say "We didn't block well,,we came back in the second quarter in
better condition and fought hard. We looked flat in the first half and that is something we can not
do next week against Fort White. Gary David (Pinner) came through and made us couple good
passes for some first downs".
Unofficial stats showed Scott with 20 carries for 77 yards. Terrence George posted 15 carries
for 85 yards. The Bears had 10 First Downs, Devils 5. Pinner threw three times and completed
three for 35 yards. It is interesting to note that Pinner is carrying an 80% completion average for
the year! The Bears are continuing to hold on to the ball better with only two fumbles, recovering
one. Overall Dixie County had 183 rushing yards compared to Williston's 13 yards.
This game is the turning point for the Bears. With district games looming ahead the team will
have to tighten up play and use their heads in all four quarters. The opposition will cut them no
slack. Fort White travels to the Bears Den in a district meet next week. Come and support the Big
Red in the quest for a district title. Go Bears!


Dixie Youth Football League

Highlights


President Mark Hatch, Coach Hollis, Coach Anderson, Coach P.J., and Coach Locke.
The Golden Bears busted the Branford Titans Saturday 13-0. The Golden Bears were scoreless in
the first quarter with "Iron Will" Kelley tested as quarterback. The Titan defense held Kelley and his
receivers Jamal Chapman and Brad Cooper to negative yards. Duke Dawson scored for the Bears in the
second half on a QB keeper. Kiandre Hope added the extra point effortlessly.
Logan Miller, in the next series sacked the Branford Quarterback and forced the turnover to the
Bears. By the third down Dawson went to Iron Will for a first down keeping the drive alive. This
allowed Hope to score on the next play.
Just before half time the big defensive line of the Bears, Hollis Barber and McFall chased the
Titan quarterback all over the back field running out the clock.
Second half action had Kelley as Quarterback again using Miller, Anderson and Cooper during
the first series. Although they gained two first downs the Titan defense again stopped the drive.
The Golden Bears held the Titans during the last quarter and finally ended the game for Branford
when The Duke intercepted a pass in the final seconds.
Coach Anderson told the Advocate "The boys played strong and we used our second string to
start the game. I am well pleased with their effort." The Golden Bears play in Trenton next on
October 1st against the Branford 2nd team. Come out watch these young athletes it's exciting!

on the way to being finished and we already have one to go in

but will be easy as everything will be straight quilting.
We enjoyed having Ramona Barber, John Deakins, Bob Rich

knows when they will' need help and they gave us so much
information. They also enjoy our potluck dinner at noon.
Tuesday Greg Salvey was out with six boys to help me with all
it takes to keep the museum going and it does take time and work
as we are starting to get more people coming our way.
We do have much going on in October. The WWII Veterans
will be coming in for lunch and get together and the date is
October 13th That night will be Law Appreciation Night and we
hope to see more to come to the Pineland Center to honor the men

WEIRD NEWS by Sander Walker

School Boy Wins Lottery
No offense but when it comes to money, the Italians just aren't
as smart as the rest of the world -- at least not when it comes
to lottery money. Apparently the country has no law about
lottery winners being 18 or older. Therefore a boy in third
grade just won $47 million bucks when he hit the lottery
jackpot. Here's the best part -- he paid for the ticket with his
lunch money. Under Italian law children are forbidden to
gamble -- but they are allowed to take part in the national
lottery. His name will be revealed only if he consents.

Dog Survives Swallowing 13-inch Knife
In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Jane Scarola has one of those 13-
inch serrated knives, the kind that cuts metal and concrete in
those TV ads, that never needs sharpening. It's now stored
safely in a cabinet atop her fridge after being miraculously
removed from its former home -- the stomach of her Saint
Bernard puppy, Elsie. Believe it or not, the knife remained
undetected in Elsie's gut for about four days until her
distraught owner took her to a vet who, once he overcame his
disbelief, surgically removed it. Dr. Jon-Paul Carew, said,
"I've taken other things out of dogs, like shish kebab skewers,
toys, small utensils, but never a blade." After plenty of
antibiotics and intravenous feeding, Elsie was ready to go
home a few days later. (Sun Sentinel)

Ronald McDonald Gets Hot!
Believe it or not -- Ronald McDonald just became a sex
symbol -- at least in Japan! On the heels of Paris Hilton's sexy
ad campaign for Hardee's and Carl's Jr, fast-food giant
McDonald's has decided to jump on the bandwagon and serve
up a new rendition of Ronald McDonald one that's not a
clown, and not even a Ronald for that matter. The
McMarketing campaign in Japan replaces the traditional
baggy-pants male clown with a sexy, bikini-clad woman. In
the TV commercial the new Ronald smolders at the camera in
a flowing yellow dress, and later a red and white striped bikini
with thigh-length leggings and red high heels. Campaign
creator, Hidekazu Sato said, "The customers are calling her
the female Ronald but that was not our intention." (World Net
Daily)

Fair and Equal Treatment
To say that it was a strange gathering of men would be, well,
an understatement. I don't know how else to put it. It is said that
sitting at one table would be some of the most notorious men of
their time. And I guess if you were to ask some of the people who
had to do business with them, you might understand how and why
they had things in common.
Actually, the way it started was unusual. You see, Henry had
accumulated a little money and Frank had a bank, so at the outset,
at least, it didn't seem very odd that Henry would deposit his
money in Frank's bank. Henry also had some other friends who
had come by money in the same manner as he had, and he was
only too glad to recommend his friend Frank and his bank for them
also.
Frank, well, he was pretty much known throughout the area as
one very friendly banker. His fair and equal treatment of all his
bank customers was nearly legendary. Fact was, Frank didn't
much care how you came by the money or how much you had, $10
or $100,000, you and your money were welcome at his bank. And
there was a reason for that. You see, before Frank owned his bank,
he had an oil company. And back when Frank was wildcatting and
building his oil business, banks really didn't know much about oil.
So naturally they were reluctant to lend money to oilmen wanting
to drill.
That was a real problem for a fellow like Frank whose income
depended on new explorations and drilling. So when he happened
to hit a big gusher once on some Osage Indian land, he took the
money and opened a bank of his own. And sometimes those rather
heady fellows would get together for a friendly game of cards. As
a matter of fact, Frank the banker was known for his propensity for
cards.
But what would be so funny, I think, at least to the casual
observer, is who would be in those games. Oh yeah, some names
that you have certainly heard over the years as some of the biggest
names in oil, like Bill Skelly and Harry Sinclair. But also at that
table would often be some of Frank's other bank customers. You
see, it's a Little Known Fact that it was Frank Phillips, owner and
founder of the giant Phillips 66 oil company and hundreds of
thousands of Phillips 66 gas stations, who founded that bank in
Bartlesville, Oklahoma. And he allowed anyone who wanted to, to
deposit their money for safekeeping even famed train robber
Henry Well, Pretty Boy Floyd, Ma Barker, Belle Starr and a few
others. Frank's very well known fair and equal treatment of all his
bank customers, regardless of their criminal record, impressed so
many outlaws, that a number of them used his bank to deposit the
money they stole from other banks. It's a strange little story, but
it's true.
And one more thing that you might find interesting: Frank
Phillips, legendary founder of Phillips 66 oil company the
company named after Highway 66, a company that became a
mega-conglomerate and has provided gasoline to millions and
millions of traveling Americans Frank Phillips died at age 76,
never having learned to drive a car himself.

5th Annual Koi & Goldfish Show

Scheduled For October 1-2
Fishing is a favorite pastime here in Dixie County but you
aren't apt to spot these colorful fish in the Suwannee! Many people
not familiar with koi often refer to them as big goldfish but they
are actually carp. They originated in Japan many years ago as a
plain, dark colored fish that was used as a food source. Through
breeding techniques, the Japanese gradually produced the fish that
we all admire today. They soon discovered it was much more
profitable to raise the koi for sale rather than for dinner! There are
thirteen classifications of koi and variations within those
classifications, which makes the hobby of koi keeping very
interesting, if not confusing at times. If kept in optimum
conditions, these "living jewels" can grow very large and can
outlive their owners.
Nature's Coast Koi & Watergarden Club, based right here in
.Dixie County will hold our 5th Annual Koi & Goldfish Show on
Saturday and Sunday, October 1 & 2 at C&C Growers on US 19 in
Old Town. We invite everybody to come visit the show, take a
peek at our "wet pets", and learn a little about the hobby and our
club.
For information, call Johnny Foster at 542-8925 or Cheryl
Revels at 542-2525.

praise all of our legion post in
the hurricane affected area.
They are doing a super job in:
assisting in their communities'
in every way possible. The
district and state organizations
are also pitching in along \ ith
the national organization.
Now for this weeks Legiok
Statement on the ACLU.
Legion addresses ACLU Legal
Abuse. . The American
Legion forged their solidarity
against legal abuse and secular
cleansing of American family
values and religious symbols
by the ACLU and other
organizations.
The American Legion,
representing 2.7 millijoi,
members unanimously passed.
Resolution 139 that calls upon
Congress to amend the practice:
of using taxpayer-funded
attorney fees by claims under
the Equal Access to Justice. ,,
Cummin's Tools will be at

1st, from 7:30 AM to 7 PM..
You'all come !
Please remember our
troops everywhere in the world
and say a prayer for their safe
return. Help the victims of:,
Mother Nature's wrath. I was
told that Jay Leno made the
statement on the 'Tonight'
show, "See what happens
when you take GOD out of
everything" I'm sure this is not
the case, but I'm sure he is not
happy with the way he is being
treated. IT IS TIME TO FIX
IT !

LEGAL NOTICE -

PUBLIC NOTICE FEMA-1595-DR-FL
The Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the
public of Its Intent to reimburse eligible
applicants for eligible costs to repair
and/or replace facilities damaged by
Hurricane Dennis, occurring from July 7 to
20, 2005. This notice applies to the Public
Assistance (PA), Individual Assistance (IA),
and' Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP)
programs implemented under the authority
of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief
and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C
5121-5206.
Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA-
1595-DR-FL) signed by the President on
July 10, 2005, the following counties have
been designated adversely affected by
the disaster and eligible for both IA and
PA: Bay, Dixie, Escambia, Franklin, Gulf,
Okalossa,. Santa Rosa, Taylor, Wakulla
and Walton. The following counties are
eligible for PA only:"Calhoun, Gasden,
Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Levy,
Liberty, Monroe and Washington.
Additional counties may be designated at
a later date. All counties in the State of
Florida are eligible for HMGP.
This public notice concerns activities that
may affect historic properties, activities that
are located in or affect wetland areas or
the 100-year floodplain, and critical
actions within the 500-year floodplain.
Such activities may adversely affect the
historic property, floodplain or wetland, or
may result in continuing vulnerability to
flood damage.
Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and
11990 require that all federal actions in or
affecting the floodplain or wetlands be
reviewed for opportunities to relocate, and
evaluated for social, economic, historical,
environmental, legal and safety
considerations. Where there is no
opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required
to undertake a detailed review to
determine what measures can be taken to
minimize future damages. The public is.
invited to participate in the process of
identifying alternatives and analyzing Ineir
Impacts.
FEMA has determined that for certain types
of facilities there are normally rio
alternatives to restoration in thme
floodplainlwetland. These facilities that
meet all of the following criteria 1) FEMA's
estimate of the cost of repairs is less thanr
50% of the cost to replace Ihe entire
facility and is less than $100,000 2) the
facility is lot located in a floodway 31 the
facility has not suslained major structural
damage in a previous Presidentially
declared flooding disaster or emergency
and 4) the facility is not critical leg the
facility is not a hospital generating planI
emergency operations center or a facility
thal contains dangerous materials). FEMA
intends to provide assistance for the
restoration of these facilities to their pre-
disaster condition, except that certain
measures to mitigate the effects of future
flooding or other hazards may be included
in the work. For example, a bridge or
culvert restoration may include a larger
waterway opening to decrease the risk ol
future wasnouts
For routine activities this will be the only
public notice provided Other activities and
ithse involving facilities thai do not meet
the four criteria are required to undergo
more detailed review including study of
alternate locations Subsequent public
notices regarding such projects will be
published if necessary, as more specific
information becomes available
in many cases, an applicant may have
started facility restoration before federal
involvement. Even if the facility must
undergo detailed review and analysis of
alternate locations FEMS will fund eligible
restoration at the onginal location if the
facility is functionally dependent on its
floodplain location (e.g.. bridges and flood
control facilites),. or the project facilisles

an open space use, or the facility is an
integral part of a larger network that is
impractical or uneconomical to relocate,
such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must
also examine the possible effects of not
restoring the facility, minimize
floodplain/wetland impacts, and determine
both that an overriding public need for the
facility clearly outweighs the Executive
Order requirements to avoid the
floodplain/wetland, and that the site is the
only practicable alternative. State of
Florida arid local officials will confirm to
FEMA that proposed actions comply with all
applicable State and local floodplain
management and wetland protection
requirements.
FEMA intends to provide IA program
funding for disaster-related emergency
housing. These actions may adversely
affect a floodplain/wetland, or may result in
continuing vulnerability to floods. These'
actions 'may include repair, restoration or
construction of housing or private bridges,
purchase and placement of travel trailers
or manufactured housing units, or repair of
structures as minimum protective
measures. This will be the only public
notice concerning these actions.
FEMA also intends to provide HMGP
funding to the State of Florida to mitigate
future disaster damages. These projects
may include construction of new facilities,
modification of existing, undamaged
facilities, relocation of facilities out of
floodplains, demolition of structures, or
Other types of projects to mitigate future
disaster damages. In the course of
developing project proposals, subsequent
public notices will be published if
necessary, as more specific information
becomes available.
The National Historic Preservation Act
requires federal agencies to take into
as count the effects of their undertakings
on historic properties Those actions or
activities affecting buildings, structures,
districts or objeclts 50 years or older or that
affect archaeological sites or undisturbed
ground will require further review- to
determine if the property is eligible for
listing in the National Register of Historic
Places (Register). If the property is
'dlerrrned to be eligible for the Register,
and FEMA's undertaking will adversely


affect it, FEMA will provide additional
public notices. For historic properties not
adversely affected by FEMA's undertaking,
this will be the only public notice.
As noted, this may be the only public
notice regarding the above-described
actions under the PA, IA and HMGP
programs. Interested persons may obtain
information about these actions or a
specific project by writing to the Federal
Emergency Management Agency, Disaster
Field Office, 100 Sunport Lane, Oriando,
FL 32809, or by calling (407) 858-2000.
Comments should be sent in writing to
Justin DeMello, Federal Coordinating
Officer, at the above address within 15
days of the date of this notice.

story of a US War Dog, Fluffy,
and how he came to be with the
Joyce family.
S.s Moore, known for her
compassion for animals was
thrilled to be a part of bringing
i Bos awareness to the public of the
fate of specially trained K-9's.
.. In fact, a large portion of the
*proceeds from the sale of the
book is going to the 'US War
Dogs Association. To find out
more, you can contact them at
0, their web site at
3 www.uswardogs.org. Moore is
not benefiting from the sale of
ri y t'S the book.
Fluffy's story takes us
Storythrough his journey to get to
the airport and back to his
handler and his home in the
a na r United States. The book is
St exciting and sometimes
Sob Pi.., ur, top. L'ra,,n,, g ,,,,,, sad... but has a very happy
Sexc.tptiugI a ,'ltP tih nuqr ending. Moore's wonderful
Acrenw .Joy. Stor" .tfroe IllartrDr. d bra illustrations really bring the
&ad4." / iloore,. Bonhm (L). h,.. thi i story to life.

DOH Encourages Floridians To Make

An Appointment To Get Their Flu

Vaccine Today
-- Schedule an appointment with your primary physician now --
TALLAHASSEE In'preparation of the 2005 flu season, Florida Department of Health (DOH)
officialss urge Floridians, especially those 65 years of age and older, to make an appointment with
their primary health care provider to receive a flu vaccine. Since flu season can begin as early as
October, it is best to schedule an appointment now to ensure you are vaccinated later in the year.
"The best protection against flu is to get vaccinated every year. I strongly encourage Florida
residents to call their doctors now to schedule a flu shot for October and November," DOH Secretary
John 0. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., said. "Getting vaccinated not only helps protect you
from getting sick with the flu but it also helps protect others."
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza-related deaths
average 36,000 per year, mostly among the elderly. Influenza results in about 200,000
hospitalizations per year.
Prioritization of influenza vaccine has been implemented to ensure that enough vaccine is
available for those at the highest risk for complications from influenza. CDC recommends that the
following priority groups receive trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) prior to the end of
October whenever possible:
persons aged 65 years and older with chronic medical conditions
'* residents of long-term care facilities
persons aged two-64 years with chronic medical conditions
children aged six-23 months
pregnant women
health care personnel who provide direct patient care
household contacts and out-of-home caregivers of persons in high risk population
The majority of flu vaccine was administered through private physicians, clinics, hospitals, long-
term care facilities, community-based clinics and other public venues. DOH estimates that it
facilitated the distribution of almost 2.67 million doses of flu vaccine in Florida over the 2004-2005
flu season.
Since prevention is the key to reduce the probability of contracting flu, here are practical steps to
stop the spread of flu:
Clean hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand cleanser.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Stay home when you are sick and keep sick children home.
Avoid close contact with people who are ill, if possible.
Do not share eating utensils, drinking glasses, towels or other personal items.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
For information about how to schedule a flu vaccination, contact your private physician or
personal health care provider. For more information on Flu and Flu vaccination, visit the DOH Web
site at http://www.doh.state.fl.us/disease ctrl/immune/flu/index.htm.

This week's Dixie Sighting is brought to us by Kathy Loy of
Old Town. Kathy and her family have taken in several skinks as
house pets that live under their refrigerator. Kathy said they are
tame enough to come out and be hand-fed. What is a skinks'
favorite food?...Vienna sausage, grapes, raisins, peaches, and fish.
They even drink grape juice out of a spoon!
The skinks that are part of the Loy family are Five-lined
Skinks. Found in the panhandle and north Florida, the lizard-like
creatures have smooth bodies, short legs, and round tails. The
Florida variety is one of the few that lay eggs, and not bear live
young. The males are light brown with dark sides and may have
stripes while the females are dark brown with five light stripes.
Thanks Kathy!
