Home

Destroyed

In Fire
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Sunday, October 30th,
2005 firefighters were called to
the home of Willmonteen
Smith, on Thompson Road in
the Old Town, Hammock.
While neighbors and family
members tried to fight the
blaze with water hoses, the
double-wide mobile home was
destroyed.
According to Shannon
Thompkins, County Fire
Department Spokeswoman,
two of the Smith grandchildren
were home at the time of the
fire and had fallen asleep.
They were awakened by the
fire alarm and ran for help.
When firefighters arrived the
fire had been contained,
however there were a number
of hot spots and flames in the
roof that had to be
extinguished.
A preliminary report filed
by the. State Fire Marshall's

fire started in the area where
an electrical lift-chair was
located.

four grandchildren, will be
staying in her mother's home
until the mobile home can be
replaced.

Dixie EMS Celebrates 28t


Anniversary


,.. ..By Terri Langford Staff Writer
P...e e adOctober 31st, 2005 marked the 28th anniversary of the inception of the Dixie County EMS. Prior
c to the County EMS, ambulance service was provided by the local funeral home.
On October 31, 1977 the County owned ambulances, all two of them, were parked in the
e _, courthouse parking lot. Arthur Bellot, Henry McCall and Gary Peacock, whom had worked for the
funeral home, ran the service unofficially on a volunteer basis out of the old County Jail on Cottrell
Ave. until the Board of County Commissioners hired Bellot as their Supervisor.
The EMS staff grew with the hiring of Mervin Langford, Bill Wade and Jerry Martin. Martin is
.jthe only EMS worker who started with the county operation and is still there today.
In 1993 Chad Reed came on as a volunteer and quickly became Bellot's prot6g6. Reed was hired
on full time in 1995 and in 1998 Martin was given the title of EMS Coordinator and Reed Emergency
,;,'Matiagement/Fire Coordinator due to Bellot's acceptance of the County Coordinator position. In
Pictured left are Arthur Bellot and Chad Reed several years back when Bellot was the Director of 2000 Reed was named the Emergency Services Director, the title he still holds today.
Emergency Services and Reed was his young protigi. Pictured right are the now Director of Emergency Today the Dixie EMS staff is considered one of the best in the state and thanks to Bellot and
Services Chad Reed, Deputy Chief of Emergency Servuces Jerry Martin and County Coordinator Arthur Reeds' grant writing skills, the County has been able to keep up with the latest equipment and even
Bellot standing in front of one of the county's new state-of-the art ambulances. has a Mobile Command Center which has been used for the past several years by hurricane ravaged
counties.
As Bellot so rightly put it in a letter of congratulations to the current staff, "You've Come A Long Way Baby!" Congratulations to you all, and "Thanks" for ajob well done.

Prince Charles and the merits of Islam
:> I suppose you could call it an American tradition that we
express s something less than groveling admiration for royalty. After
'1., our nation came into existence as a result of a resolution:
'against a despotic English king.
; I recall that my father, while playing cards (one of his favorite
:pastimes), would refer to the queens as "mop-squeezers." How
:superbly American, equating royalty with the humblest of their
-servants!
: On the other hand, the British have been our allies in two world
,wars and several subsequent military efforts, including the current
'war in Iraq-for which Prime Minister Tony Blair has taken a lot
4of heat from the liberal media in his own country.
This brings us to the point, which is that the British have been
;our allies only since the monarchy became irrelevant. British kings,
:.queens and their progeny live in luxury and appear at appropriate
state functions, but actually have almost nothing to say about how
,the country is to be run. It took a long time from the signing of the
:-Magna Carta (1215) for Great Britain to .fully develop a
,representative form of government, but the fact is that the Royal
.Family no longer runs the show-and I'd venture to say it's
probably just as well.
Of course, when Queen Elizabeth II visits our shores, she gets
;VIP treatment, and it is considered a serious breech of etiquette if
,:Her Majesty finds herself attempting to address an audience from a
':podium which she cannot see over the top of. (Make that, ...over
'the top of which she cannot see. One should certainly not end a
-,entence with a preposition when talking about British royalty.)
:, As heir-apparent to the British throne, Prince Charles will
:',expect to receive VIP treatment, and no doubt this will be afforded.'
:Obviously. President Bush will have to handle this assignment in
person; in fact, it is the prince's stated intention to have a chat with
:"Bush ror the express purpose of .(are you ready for this?)
persuading the him of the merits of Islam!
I can't claim to be thoroughly checked out on the subject, but it
seems to me that just about every terrorist attack our country has
:experienced in recent years, at home and abroad, including 9/11,
has been carried out by adherents of the Islamic religion.
S Meanwhile, if I am not mistaken, Islamic goons have taken
advantage of Britain's permissive immigration policies and are
now causing more trouble in that country than the IRA was 20
Years ago.
All of which leaves me wondering just what it is that the Prince
of Wales finds so meritorious about the Islamic religion. We are
; often reminded, that not all Muslims are terrorists; however we
hae reached a point where nearly all terrorists are Muslims, and
: meanwhile, non-violent Muslims don't seem to be doing much to
counteract the image of their more militant brethren.
, Until I watched Prince Charles on "60 Minutes" Sunday
: evening, the last thing I recall having heard him say was, "I don't
Either look .like Alfred E. Neuman!" (Mad magazine's famous
"What, me worry?" kid.) All right, that was back in the 1950s,
when the Prince himself was just a kid.
S On the other hand, there does seem to be- a certain
p resemblance....
,; Anyway, Prince Charles is also upset (h says terrified) over
3: global warming. See what happens when we let Al Gore go to
England?

Before the invention of the telescope, dim stars could
not be seen. When they brightened, it was thought they
were new stars.

Letter To The Editor
October 31, 2005
Dear Editor,
This is an open letter to all citizens of all counties within a
50-mile radius of Taylor County.
Through the news media you have probably heard that JEA
wants to build a coal fired electric plant here, (Taylor County).
Like most folks you say to yourself "fine as long as it isn't in my
back yard."
Well guess what! It could be your backyard. Those 700-foot
stacks will emit sulfuric acid, nitric acid and mercury into the
atmosphere. When the easterly blowing winds, off the Gulf,
catch those emissions where do you think it will go? Sulfur
dioxide and nitrogen oxide interact in the atmosphere with water'
and oxygen forming nitric and sulfuric acids or ACID RAIN.
Acid rain, in your backyard! So this should be of concern to
you, also.
Defoliating trees, contaminating water, contaminating soil,
decaying old buildings and polluting the air you breathe. The air
you breath will contain particulate matter, which causes lung
damage.
Please help Taylor County defeat this proposed plant. The
few jobs for a few years (during construction) are not worth a
lifetime of illness and pollution. The number of employees and
the criteria for the plant has already changed. What will the
future bring?
Write our city commissioners.and ask them to rethink their
position or at least to let the residents have a vote on this
damaging issue.
Footnote: electricity generated will benefit Disney World,
Jacksonville and possibly a small portion of Tallahassee, not
YOU or US.
Sincerely,
Carole Taitt, for TRUE
Taylor Residents United for the Environment:

Letter To The Editor
After many rumors and several contracts, Joy and I have signed
a contract for the sale of Angler's Resort. After much thought,
consideration, and at our age, we decided to sell. The purchasers
have fished and scalloped here many times. They appreciate the.
environment of the Lower Suwannee.
As we think back on our 13 years here, we have tried to be a
part of the community by keeping a neat and clean place, and
providing local radar, and a light over the boat ramp. We have
been stewards of the environment, recycling fishing line,
aluminum cans, cardboard,, enclosing the garbage trailer, taking
fish heads out of the river, investing in double walled tank and
pipes for the gasoline and by being the driving force behind the
Friends of the Great Suwannee Reef (educating and promoting the
Suwannee estuary).
Joy and I both have good and not so good (high water)
memories. We have met many good and interesting people and
many came to be regular customers and part of our lives.
We feel that we have been truly blessed by being in Suwannee
and look forward to spending tinite fishing the river and estuary.
The marina and lodging will close on November 15th. The RV
Park will remain operational until notified.
Warmest regards,
George and Joy Anderson

Alert! Jury Duty Scam

could lead to Identity Theft
Has anyone called recently letting you know that you missed
jury duty? Warning, it could be a scam.
Clever thieves continue to deceive innocent victims with
intentions of stealing an individual's identity, and the jury duty
scam is one of the latest.
Other states are reporting that a person claiming to be a Clerk's
Office employee is calling innocent people telling them that a jury
summons in their name has gone unanswered, and that an arrest
warrant has been issued. The caller then suggests he or she can
verify the arrest warrant if the unsuspecting person will provide
some personal identifying information, such as social security
number, birth date, or credit card number. Much of this
information can easily be used to commit identity theft.
"While this scam has not reached Dixie County, if you ever
experience this type call, hang up and call my office immediately,"
stated Honorable Joe Hubert Allen, Clerk of the Court. "The
Clerk's office does not call summoned jurors. Please do not give
out your personal information to anyone you don't know."
It is only natural that a person may be inclined to give out
personal information under the threat of an arrest, but in reality,
court officials will never request personal information over the
phone.
This scam has been reported in many states, and many more
innocent victims could be at risk if they are not aware of this
threat.
About the Clerk's Office
The Clerk of the Circuit Court was established as a public
trustee by the Florida Constitution in 1838. The Clerk of the
Circuit Court serves as the Clerk of Courts, the Clerk of the Board
of County Commissioners, Auditor, Recorder and Custodian of all
County Funds.

"Laughter Is Very Powerful Medicine"
By Marie Snider
Good health is a blessing. A blessing I enjoy at this point in
my life. But at the same time, I know good health is a precarious
commodity. In a blink of an eye, I could get sick or have a serious
accident.
So, I do everything I can to stay healthy. I eat plenty of
bananas, oranges, spinach, oatmeal, avocadoes, pomegranates,
nuts, dark chocolate, beans, brown rice, salmon and other healthy
foods. And I try to drink eight glasses of water a day.
For exercise, I participate in water aerobics and. Tai Chi
classes. I try to have loads of friends. I also enjoy my extended
family and my larger community.
But most of all, I make sure that I have lots of laughter in my
life. Which isn't difficult for me, because I grew up in a laughing
family.
My father was a jokester in the best sense of the word. My
uncles and aunts and all of my cousins laugh frequently. And the
only grandmother I remember always told funny stories and had a
hearty laugh.
So I'm one of the lucky ones. Because, today we know that
laughter is good for your health both for preserving your health
and for coming back to health after illness.
"Laughter is very powerful medicine," says Herbert Lingren,
Extension Family Scientist, of the University of Nebraska.
"It can lower stress, dissolve anger and unite families in their
resolve to overcome troubled times."
Not only does laughter reduce stress, researchers say that
laughter is good for your health. It can lower blood pressure,
boost the immune system, improve brain function, safeguard the
heart, fight infections and activate the will to live.
A hearty laugh can also relieve depression and sometimes
helps with pain. Laughing helps you cope with the difficulties life
presents to you. It may even help increase your social support
network. Because everybody likes people who laugh and make
them laugh.
And, although not a substitute for regular exercise, hearty
laughter is as good for you as walking or using a rowing machine.
It is often called "internal jogging." And, just like a workout,
laughing activates endorphins and makes you feel good.
So, now are you convinced that you want to laugh more to
increase your health and happiness? But what if you didn't grow
up in a laughing family? It may not come naturally to you. How
can you get started laughing?
The experts have some suggestions.
1. Choose friends that laugh a lot and laugh with them.
2. Rent funny movies and watch old sit-coms like "Green
Acres" and "The Beverly Hillbillies."
3. Write down funny jokes and tell them at the right times.
4. Laugh instead of crying when you fall down, if you aren't
badly hurt.
5. Program some fun into every day whatever makes you
laugh or smile.
6. Take a "laugh break" instead of a coffee break.
If all else fails, just say "tee-hee," then "ha-ha," then "ho-ho."
And before you know it, you'll be laughing a deep belly laugh.
Children laugh 300 times a day. Adults only 17. Why not
rediscover the child inside you? And a sense of humor will surely
follow.
Remember, laughter is powerful medicine, with no side
effects.

New Prospect Baptist News
Our Fall Festival at Brannin's Camp Saturday evening was a
resounding success, as about 150 people gathered in good
Christian fellowship and fun. Sunday was special, too. After a nice
job of singing by our choir, we were blessed by a beautiful song by
a new church group...excellent job, Aimee, April, Kelly and
Tracey! Bro. Billy then brought God's message from John 10:10,
leaving everyone with much food for thought. Immediately
following the morning service, we had the additional blessing of
attending the baptismal service of one of our young ladies,
performed by Bro. Billy. Sunday night, we were treated to a
concert by the Heartland Boys, a southern gospel quartet from
Kentucky who, as we quickly became aware, were a very talented
and Christ-oriented group of singers.
There will be a Youth Rally at Lydia Baptist Church on
Saturday, November 5th, 6:00 P. M. On Monday, November 7th,
our New Prospect Ladies' Ministry and the Pastor/Deacons will

personnel. Invite someone to church with you...we enjoy all our
visitors, and hope for many returns. May God bless and keep you.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"David and Goliath"
I, the Day of the Lord, say people gasped in shock and amazement as
they watched the strange proceedings. Some cried out a protest against the
inequality of it. For, running down the mountainside, hair flying in the
wind and singing a joyous psalm of victory was a handsome young
Israelite.
I, the Day of the Lord, say waiting for him in the valley was a giant
philistine, standing over nine feet tall, armed with a coat of mail and a
helmet of brass, and burning with a hatred for Israelites that could not be
equaled. He had cursed and defied the armies of Israel, and none had
dared to oppose him.
I, the Day of the Lord, say until now. He gave a cry of rage as he saw
the young lad approaching, armed only with a shepherds staff and a sling.
I, the Day of the Lord, say to get the true picture of how Israel arrived
at such a low state as to let a little shepherd boy have to take up their battle
against the philistines, you must need to go back and read the entire book
of 1 Samuel. You will see how that in a time when the old order
priesthood ministry became blind and heavy with flesh that God moved
upon the scene and brought forth a little lad named Samuel.
I, the Day of the Lord, say tho he was young and immature, God
anointed him with a prophetic ministry, and thus led and judged His
people b,. His Spirit. It \jas God's order, not man's. It was divine order,
noti human or'anizli3on or system. :. : ...
I,'the Day of the Lord, say This was a wonderful type of the spirit-led,
spirit-filled Pentecostal movement that God raised up at the beginning of
the 20th century. The old order ecclesiastical systems of man had gotten so
fleshy and so blind that they could lead God's people no further in the
Spirit.
I, the Day of the Lord, say so God set them aside even as He did Eli.
Oh, true enough, Eli's grandson still lived and tried to carry on the
traditional religion, it had to be named "ICHABOD", for the glory of the
Lord had departed. The Ark of God was gone. Please stay with me, I have
a lot to tell you. Continued.

3-Day Revival
Walker Creek Bethel Baptist Church will be holding a 3-Day

Central Baptist Church
What a great Revival service we had this week. The saints were
challenged all week to evaluate their commitments and seek God's
plan for their lives and to live holy lives pleasing to our Lord.
Next Sunday a missionary team of six will be leaving
Jacksonville Airport from Central Baptist for Cayman Brac to put
on an island wide crusade for Jesus. This little island has 13
churches on it but few if any are serving' the Lord in
the evangelistic command that we were given by Jesus in Matthew
28: 19-20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end
of the world. Amen."
Please keep us in prayer for the entire week of the 7th through
the 11th. We will also be doing visitations during the day time
hours and service will be at the island community center each
evening at 7pm. There is one name in particular we wish you to
pray for; our host, Robert Banks.
Awana Registration will be Wed. evening, Nov. 16th, at the
Church from 8-9pm, and also on Saturday Nov. 19th from 12 noon
until 2pm in our fellowship hall. We are signing up ages 2 years
before Kindergarten to 6th grade.
There will be a pro-rated registration fee of $11.00 which will
go towards uniforms, books, and awards. Weekly dues will be 50
cents a week for each clubber.
We have limited seating so first come first served will be
observed and everyone else will go on a waiting list and added as
the Lord sends in workers.
Awana night will be on Wed. evenings from 6-8pm.
For more information call John Orlando @ 542-9438

The Word Made

Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. 1, the
son of man, say the angels asked the
new spirits "In what manner did you
believe that the destruction of your
world would take place?" They said
"by fire, about which we have believed
and prophesied many things: some .of
us, that flames from heaven would be
cast down everywhere upon the earth,
as they were upon the' sons of Aaron,
and upon the burnt offering of Elijah;
some, that the fire of the sun would be
-teet,-loose, would, break ornh. and .et
the universe on fire; -some, that the
central fire of the earth would break
-the crust round about it and hurl itself
Sfrth everywhere, as it does from the
fire-vomiting mountains, Etna,
Vesuvius and Helca; some, that a great
comet wouldd invade the atmosphere of
the eanh. and eould set it on fire with
ihe flame of is- tail; some have said
that the universe would not perish by
fire, but would go to ruin, and fall to
pieces, as does a house from age; and
others have believed otherwise."
I,. the son of man, say, when the
angels had heard these things they said
to one another, "0 what simplicity:
arising only from utter ignorance of
the spiritual world also from utter
ignorance of "he internal or spiritual
sense of the word: The angels then
said,,"We have not been chosen from
heaven to instruct newcomers from the
countries of the natural world, since all
who arrive here from there, are in a
foibolish belief about heaven, yea, even
,about salvation; Wherefore unless
those follies are dissipated, which is
etffected b instruction, ,their rational,
which is above the memory and grows
wise from the reception of celestial
light, would be closed, and this being
closed, from being men they would
become animals, with this sole
difference; that they would still be able
to think from the external senses, and
speak from this thought alone. Since
this office of instruction is enjoined'
upon us, we will teach you what is
meant in the Word by consummation
of the age." And they said, "the
consummation of the church is meant
which consummation 'is also called
desolation and devastation, and this is
when there are no longer truths of faith
and goods of charity in any essence of
their own, and thus all the ways to
;'.-.'heaven are obstructed."
.I, the son of man, say they also
said. "This consummation appears
..* scarcely anywhere in the world,
because those things which are of faith
are not truths but falsities, and those
things which are of charity are not
goods but only deeds of their own
love, which when they go forth in the
breath of the mouth, do not elevate
themselves to heaven, but as soon as
they rise up they are turned aside and
fall down to the earth, just as does the
, water of a bath when cast .upon the
shoulders or as rotten fruit falls from
the trees in the time of winter.
I, the son of man, say In this
consummation or end of the church, it
will be proclaimed from all pulpits,
and the people will vociferate in all
sanctuaries, "Here is the dwelling
place of God: Here is the temple of
God: Here is the church of God: Here
is salvation: Here is the light of the
Gospel." And they do not at all know
' that they are in mere darkness, and that
they dream the dream of the age. This
is because they believe that falsities
truths, and truths falsities, as also that
evils are goods, and goods evils. This
night and this dream the Lord
predicted in iMadi 24 3'-39) and in
(Luke 27:26 to the end).
I, the son of man, say the end of
the church will not be at all recognized
on earth, though fully recognized in
.the heavens. Please stay up with me.
Love you. Continued next week.'

Abundant Life & Living
Abundant life and living in the 21st Century has inspired a
new awareness of oneself. The human family is exploring the
most exciting and challenging
times in our history. We are
learning more about our divine
b selves and our spiritual needs also.
Knowledge has been increased
about god and our place in his
divine plan. Wisdom is beckoning
.:. us upon a higher spiritual plain
where there is complete peace, joy,
love, happiness, rest, praises and
-a glory inside of us. Treasures that
\ i ,. are dormant. All the wonderful
Lucille Stockton technology and modem inventions
nman has discovered, that is making
our lives so easy, yet I still marvel at God's beautiful creation.
We are miracles, no computer or .robot will be able to match
God's, wonderful creation. The Micro chip and the cell phone is
as marvelous as the discovery of electricity and the light bulb
but they cannot replace a human being. When their creation
needs repair, man has to fix them. God made the perfect
miraculous being. With every intricate detail fitting in its own
unique place. And He can repair what he created.
"Love Life And Live It."


Faith Baptist Church News
What a mighty God we serve. This-entire weekend was one of
the best we've had at Faith in a very long time. Our Fall Festival
was superb. There were so many people there that the fellowship
hall was packed as we ate the wonderful HOBO Stew the men
prepared. The cake walk was a huge success with 25 cakes being
donated for it. Everyone enjoyed the fire truck ride and the hay
ride.
Sunday morning Bro. Bill Jenk]ins brought the message as Bro.
Jackie was out of town, and Bro. Bill did a splendid job. Sunday
after the morning service, we had lunch in the fellowship hall and
again, we had a near capacity crowd. Sunday night was our 5th
Sunday Sing and Bro. Kacie had 9 people sign up to sing. One soul
was saved and the singing was just phenomenal. We even had
visitors from another church play the guitars and sing for us.
Thanks to all who participated and for the wonderful jobs you did.
If you missed any of this, you truly missed a blessing. It was just
an outstanding weekend at Faith.
Remember our homecoming next Sunday with dinner at the
church again, then Southland will be singing in the afternoon.
Monday night will start our Fall revival with Bro. Jake Cravey
preaching it. Come out and hear Bro. Jake and bring a friend with
you. It just might be your invitation that would.cause them to come
and be saved. God will surely bless you for that. Come expecting a
blessing and you will surely receive one.
We pray that you will have a wonderful, happy and healthy
week. Remember to pray for someone in need this week and invite
someone to the revival. Try to make it every night if you can. See
you there.

Gulf Red Snapper Sport Fishing

Season Set To Close
Recreational red snapper fishing season in the Gulf of Mexico
'will close Nov. 1.
State rules prohibit recreational harvest and possession of red
snapper Nov. 1 April 14 in Florida waters in the Gulf. Federal
waters in the Gulf also close to recreational red snapper harvest
Nov. 1 and do not reopen until April 21.
: This closure occurs each year in order to help rebuild over-
fished red snapper stocks in the Gulf.
: Florida state waters extend nine nautical miles offshore in the
Gulf, and federal waters extend beyond state waters.

Bears Looking To Fatten Up;

Residents Shouldn't Help
Backyard bear sightings have increased throughout the state in
r-cent years and the Florida 'Fish and Wildlife Conservation
(commission (FWC) said today residents should not lay out the
sielcome mat for the big furry critters.
: In the fall, bears search for fallen acorns as they try to gain
Setight before winter, which often brings them into neighborhoods.
hliough bears have a natural fear of people, "They can smell food
ftom more than a mile away," said Stephanie Simek, Bear Program
coordinator with the FWC. "If they are rewarded with an easy
real, they learn quickly to return to the scene."
These easy meals include unsecured garbage cans, bird feeders
and a pet's food left on the back porch.
"Bears are very intelligent and extremely resourceful," Simek
added. "They will want to stay if they find an available and
abundant food source."
Residents can avoid unpleasant bear encounters by taking some
simple steps to ensure that living in bear country is a safe and
enjoyable experience.
What you can do:
Remember: feeding bears is against the law
Store all food, garbage ahd compost in secure areas
Temporarily remove wildlife feeders if there are bears in
the area
o' While Florida black bears never have attacked anyone in
Florida, Simek said people should give bears ample space and
ne% er attempt to disturb, pet or feed'them:
- "A bear that stays in an area for long periods often reflects
more of a people problem than a bear problem," Simek said.
FWC wildlife biologists recently had to capture, and relocate
three bears from Franklin and Bay counties -- the biggest was a
near-record 500-pound male. These bears were feeding in
unsecured garbage bins at a restaurant and school. FWC biologists
tagged and relocated the bears to the Apalachicola National Forest.
So far this year, the FWC received more than 1,300 calls to report
bears, including sightings and roadkills.

FWC Spring Turkey Quota Hunt

Applications Now Available
Hunters looking to do some turkey hunting on Florida's
wildlife management areas during the 2006 spring turkey season
need to apply for quota hunt permits beginning at 10 a.m. (EDT)
Nov. 2.
Quota hunt permit worksheets are available on the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Web site at
MyFWC.com/hunting under "Quota Hunts." Worksheets also are
available at county tax collectors' offices and at all FWC regional
offices.
Spring turkey quota hunt applicants must apply through FWC's
Total Licensing System (TLS). Applications are no longer
accepted by mail. You may apply via Internet at
wildlifelicense.com or turn in your completed worksheet to any tax
collector or license agent, and they will submit it for you.
Applicants must apply by 11:59 p.m. (EDT) Nov. 11 to be
included in one of two random drawings. All applicants, regardless
of when they apply, have the same chance of being selected as
long as they are turned in within the application period.
Hunters, who were included in the random drawing last year
and not issued a quota hunt permit, will be included in this year's
first drawing, known as the preference drawing.
"When you submit your application, there is no need to attach
any rejection notice received last year to be included in this
drawing. The TLS knows who was rejected last year and who is
eligible this year." said Eddie White, FWC's quota hunt
coordinator. "When you submit your application, you will receive
a receipt showing the hunts you have applied for and your
preference status. If you are eligible for the preference drawing,
your receipt will indicate 'Preference: Yes.' Those not eligible for
the preference drawing will be included in the second drawing."
,Applicants will receive, by mail, either a spring turkey quota
hunt permit or a rejection notice prior to the beginning of Phase 2
of the selection process, on Dec. 14. Rejected applicants will be
eligible for the preference drawing the following year and may re-
apply in Phase 2 for any hunts that were not filled during the
random drawings.
Hunters also may apply as a "group" during Phase 1. The group
leader must apply first, and the group's number will be printed on
their receipt. Each person wishing to join the group must also
apply using *this same group number, as provided by the group
leader.
For more information on how you 'can apply for these spring
turkey quota hunt permits, visit MyFWC.com/hunting.

Sturgeon Egg In Withlacoochee

Shows Spawning Activity
Caviar, the delicacy of kings, princes and commissars, conjures
up images of the rich and famous as they eat this fish egg delicacy
on crackers or crepes.
However, a single Gulf sturgeon egg means something entirely
different to biologists who have found evidence that the fish may
be spawning in the Withlacoochee River.
"We put egg collection mats on the river bottom to collect the
adhesive eggs," said Eric Nagid, a biologist with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Division
Freshwater Fisheries in Gainesville.
FWC biologists and University of Florida researcher Darryl
Parkyn, Ph.D. collected the egg in May and subsequently verified
it came from a sturgeon.
The glossy black egg measured about one-eighth of an inch in
diameter, according to Nagid.
"Although we only found one sturgeon egg, it is significant,
because it suggests successful reproduction is occurring," Nagid
said. "Portions of the Withlacoochee River are designated as
critical sturgeon habitat by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
There have been reported sightings of sturgeon in this Suwannee
River tributary, but biologists have failed to collect the fish or their
eggs until now."
During September, FWC biologists saw adult and juvenile Gulf
sturgeon in the Withlacoochee River. Most of the adult fish
gathered 100 yards from where the Suwannee and the
Withlacoochee join. However, biologists saw both juveniles and
adults as far upstream as the Route 6 Bridge in Madison and
Hamilton counties. Four juveniles measured 15 to 18 inches, and
the smallest were six to eight inches, according to biologists.
"After we found that egg, we wanted to see if any juveniles
were produced. Seeing a spawn in a tributary that's not commonly
considered a breeding ground for Gulf sturgeon yields important
new information. It suggests successful reproduction is occurring.
These findings will help us learn more about the Gulf sturgeon and
stress the importance of routine monitoring of this federally listed
species," Nagid said.
The Gulf sturgeon came under federal listing as a threatened
species under the Endangered Species Act in 1991, .when
populations declined after a century of fishing for meat and caviar.
The FWC classifies the fish as a species of special concern.
"The Gulf sturgeon is an anadromous (living in both salt and
fresh water) fish. Sturgeons grow rapidly at about a foot a year,
and mature at about eight feet long. They can live about 25 years.
However, they can't reproduce until they are between eight and 12
years old. The Suwannee River has the largest remaining sturgeon
population in Florida," Nagid said.
Gulf sturgeons have rows of armored plates along their sides
and back, called scutes. These prehistoric fish have a vacuum-like
mouth, a long snout and whiskers called barbels. Sturgeon
typically range in color from a light neutral color to dark brown
and have a white underbelly.

Sweet redemption for

Meyer,

Spurrier
JACKSONVILLE --
Under a stone-gray
sky on the Ides of
Halloween, down on
a field where
gremlins have had
their way with the
breakage of dreams
over decades, 99 ticks
and the protection of a four-point lead were all
that stood between the Florida Gators and sweet
redemption.
The fourth best team in America, crippled
by the loss of their star quarterback and trying to
find some magic in the arm of a fourth-year man
who had never been this way before, needed to
summons the spirits on fourth down and 11 at
Georgia's 39-yard line, trailing, 14-10.
Florida-Georgia is mayhem. It is wild,
wacky plays and Bermuda Triangle-like
moments. This was, after ,all, the 25th anniversary
of the famed Buck Belue-to-Lindsay Scott pass
which went for 93 yards and a last-minute
touchdown that destroyed the hopes of Gator
fans, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory,
28-21. Were those spirits of Belue and Scott still
hanging around Alltel Stadium with the other 84,
501 witnesses?
All 6-foot-3, 221 pounds of No. 13,
Athens-born-and-raised Joe Tereshinki III
dropped back to throw and before he could
uncock his arm, another Georgian was there to
greet him.
Florida defensive end Jeremy Mincey,
who hails from Statesboro, Ga., figured it was
"'time for a little payback," and stormed in to
disrupt the play. In desperation, Tereshinski
flipped the ball underhanded and it bounced
harmlessly to the shimmering green turf,
incomplete.
Game, set, match. For the 14th time in 16
years the Gators had somehow defeated their
bordt-rorivals and, this time, ruined their
undefeated season and bid for a national
championship. Meanwhile, the Gators are back in
t6he SEC East hunt. If Georgia loses to Auburn,
Florida goes to the SEC title game by beating
Vanderbilt and South Carolina.
-If there were any tears this time from
Urban Meyer there were going to tears of joy and
relief. The man one newspaper labeled "The 01'.
Bawl Coach" after his tearful press conference
following a loss to LSU was about to redeemed.
Knock off your second No. 4 ranked team
in America this season -"Tennessee was ranked
fourth when the Gators beat them in the third
game of the season -- and it gets you lots of love.
Maybe it's no big crime at most schools to
lose twice to top seven teams in your conference,
but when you have arrived on the scene with
promises of moving the earth, most people don't
take that to mean it's going -to be buy the
shovelful. That's why Meyer needed this
quantum-leap win.
"I'm.honored to experience this against a
tremendous team," Meyer said. "I'm not sure I've
ever been associated with a group of young men
who've gone through what they've gone through
the last three or four weeks."
You could see the clear eyes arid the look
of a relieved man on Meyer's face. He had the
500-pound gorilla called Florida football off his
back and over a two-week period of hard work,
he'd found some kind of elixir for his ailing
offense which produced a 109-yard rushing day
for tailback DeShawn Wynn.
Right off there was evidence of
improvement as Chris Leak took his offense 80
yards for a touchdown on the opening drive,
sticking the ball across the goal line with a half-
gainer.


Meyer's spread offense had been scrapped
with only a few crumbs of the formations still on
the table. Instead of four- and five-wideout setup,
Meyer opted for the "max-protect" of his
quarterback, utilizing a fullback and tight end to
fend off Bulldogs rushers. The result was two
precision-like drives in the first quarter which put
Georgia to sleep early in the afternoon. When the
Bulldogs woke up they were like Rip Van Winkle:
Too much had already happened.
"This game was about heart and hustle,"
said Mincey. "We had more heart and we
outhustled them."
And they had some guile. Although
Georgia got back in the game on a trick play,
Meyer saved his fourth-down fake punt for the
fourth quarter and it paid off when punter Eric
Wilbur rambled 20 yards to keep a drive alive.
Even if it didn't result in points, it ate up more
clock.
"Big rivalries like this are sometimes
decided by one play like that," said Meyer, who
also made a statement about not being too white
knuckled-on these occasions.
In addition to being a season-saving, SEC-
rejuvenating victory, it gave Meyer some badly
needing coach cred. At stake were his entire
offensive philosophy and championship
credentials he brought from Utah.
To his credit, he scrapped his ego and the high-
tech portion of the spread offense, dumming it
down to a few effective plays. That propelled the
Gators out of the box with two quick TDs in a
year when those things are on the endangered
species in the SEC. And then they held on for
dear life.
It almost started out looking too easy as the riled
up Gator defense stuffed Georgia on a three-and-
out series and then Leak set up at the Bulldogs'
41. From there, Florida scored in five plays on a
short toss to tight end Tate Casey for a 14-0 lead.
After all, with starting quarterback D. J.
Shockley injured, Georgia wasn't going anywhere
with backup Tereshinski, right?
It would have been all over if Wynn
hadn't fumbled away a probable touchdown drive
right before the half and a chance for a 21-3 lead.
About Tereshinski? He brought the Bulldogs
back with a vengeance in the second half, even
catching a touchdown pass himself from running
back Thomas Brown. But it wasn't enough.
This one wound up on Florida's side of
the ledger-again, but maybe- only because "the
spirits knew Urban Meyer needed it worse than
Mark Richt.
This turned out to be a big day for Gator
fans for more reasons than the win over Georgia.
Steve Spurrier's South Carolina team knocked off
Tennessee, 16-15, later Saturday night on a 49-
yard field goal, the longest of the kicker career,
when the football just barely eclipsed the cross
bar.
Ironically, it was the 39th anniversary of
another famous field goal that was huge to the
Gator Nation: Spurrier's kick that beat Auburn,
30-27, and probably led to his winning the
Heisman Trophy.
In listening to the Tennessee post-game
show and "Phil Fulmer Dressing Room Report"
on AM 1510 Saturday night while driving home
from Jacksonville, it sounded like changes would
be imminent for the Vols. You could heard the
despondency on his voice.
"Just about everything that could go wrong
this year has gone wrong," Fulmer lamented.
Not only was it the first time USC
has beaten Fullmer in 13 tries, but it ran
Spurrier's record to 8-2 against him. It was just
the'third win over Tennessee in school history and
the Gamecocks did it in Neyland Stadium. All of
which caused Spurrier to dust off an old quote
and insert a new name.
"I used to say this when I was down at
Florida," Spurrier said with glee in his voice.
"God smiled on the Gamecocks tonight."
And here's a little twist to consider: Say
Auburn does knock off Georgia, giving Florida a
clear path to Atlanta for the SEC Championship
game. How huge would it be for Spurrier and his
Gamecocks to upset the Gators on Nov. 12?


The DCHS Band was an added delight to last week football game.


To Face PKY Friday Night

Madison Cowboys Corral Bears


Robert Yarrell scored the only Bear TD in the loss to Madison County last week.

By John Kelley
The Dixie Bears lost to the
Madison Cowboys on Friday
night. This should come as no
surprise to Big Red fans.
Madison is the number one
team in the state at present and
Dixie was portrayed as the 53-
point underdog. "We were
outmatched", commented
Coach Wilkerson at the end of
. the game, "but we never gave
up. I am proud of my players
because we never quit."
The game started out on a
sour note for the DCHS Bears.
On the kickoff to Madison, the
Cowboys took the ball and
never slowed down on the
return. Seriously folks, we are
talking about the Cowboys
putting eight points on the
board before the first cheer
from the cheerleaders was
done.
Things weren't pretty after
that, between penalties (both
teams) and the Cowboys
scoring, the Bears had their
hands full. By the halftime
buzzer, Dixie was down 41-0.
The DCHS defense could
barely hold the Madison line
and the offense couldn't get a
chance to take the field.'
Then in the fourth quarter,
the Bears finally rallied and on
a hand-off from Gary David
Pinner, Robert Yarrell, Dixie
scored. Cassidy booted the
extra point and the Bears were
on the scoreboard. The
Madison team, who by this
time were tired of, being
harassed by the Bears, simply
did what they had been doing
the whole game, and promptly
scored again to make the score
47-7. That pretty well wrapped
it up for the Bears.
As it was mentioned
before, this game was no big
surprise to the Bears. Coach
Wilkerson commented at the
last game that the team should
go out and have fun just to see
.how they matched up with the
.high-powered Cowboys. It
'appeared that they just that.


Quarterback Gary David Pinner gets ready to pass the ball to
a Bear receiver last Friday night


The Cowboys were intent on
intimidating the Bears and the
Bears just took it in stride.
They never quit, didn't get
mad, just played great ball
against a superior team and in
fact exhibited character that
you would expect from a team
that was going to the playoffs.
The Madison coach played his
starters through the second
quarter as the Bears constantly
made adjustments to their
defense and offense.
Dixie County even
stepped up its passing defense,
which earlier in the season left
a lot to be desired.

All in all, this game
should serve to excite the team
to play their best in the
Homecoming game this week
against P.K. Yonge. Coach
Wilkerson said, "We are
matched up with P.K. better,
and the seniors need to make
this game their priority and getf
the last win." We agree, the
game with Madison is now a-
memory, concentrate on the
game that you will relive for
the rest of your lives.'
Remember we didn't end up
the 53-point underdogs that
they said we were. Go BIG

The Annual Sheriff's Youth Ranch Fishing Day, sponsored by the Shamrock Veterinary Clinic
and Rotary Club, was held last Saturday, October 29, 2005 with 55 young men attending, ages 11-
18; all ready to fish and spend a day out in the sunshine. It was truly a "Chamber of Commerce
Day", with bright skies and a cool breeze, perfect weather for reeling in the catch of the day.
Helping out,were Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and some of his crew, EMS Director Chad Reed and a
few of his men. Other sponsors included were Magic Bait Company who supplied the bait, Civitan
Life South supplying the drinks, and Dennis Pabloc, who for the past eight years has supplied the
hamburgers and hot dogs, and fishing rods. The Cottage Parents from the Ranch did their part as'
well by bringing all the fixins'. What a spread!
The day began with some serious fishing. Many had never fished before and received a lot of
tips from the pros at the pond. When it was all said and done, Rancher Jimmy earned the bragging
rights for having caught the biggest fish at 9 lbs while Rancher Tyreese caught the smallest fish
weighing in at 3 lbs. Congrats to you both! Of course there were quite a few that "got away".
Frank Kenny, CFP Donor Relations Officer at the Live Oak based Youth Ranch, stated that the
annual event is a favorite of the Ranch residents and always met with anticipation and excitement.
There were several young men who had been at the Drs. Hank & Linda Stoddards' pond at the
Veterinary Clinic before and looked forward to coming again this year. They noted they were not
disappointed, having had a great time.
As the fish were caught, they were brought in and filleted and popped into the grease. It was
reported the group were typical boys with healthy appetites.
As the day came to a close, expressions of thanks and gratitude were given to everyone who
made the day possible and memorable. Dr. Hank stated that they will continue to hold the annual
event for as long as they can. "These are great kids that come here and we love having them," he
added.
See you next year!

Rotary District Governor Visits Local Club
Rotary District Governor John Tice was in town Wednesday, October 26, 2005 visiting the Dixie
County Rotary Club. He brought greetings from both Rotary International and the District. He
presented the club the 3rd place award for Per Capita Annual Fund Giving to the Rotary Foundation.
He shared with the club the high ideals of Rotary. He presented a thought process for Rotarians
to use to prioritizing their Rotary commitment. It involves tapping into the 3 Dimensions of the
Power of Rotary. He
., explained that first dimension
S' involves that "something" in
one's heart that wants to make
a positive difference in the life
Sof someone else. The next
S" X step involves connecting the
"heart to the second dimension,
.-. 1 which has to do with purpose
and passion. He explained
that one of the things that
separate Rotary from other
S" service organizations is that it
I :';. Ioffers an almost unlimited
.'----------j } number of ways in which one
... can make a positive difference
District Governor John Tice presents Paul Harris Fellow designation in the lives of others, and, in
to Anne Engers, signifying her significant contribution to the Rotary doing so, connect to your
Foundation. passion. In making his point
about the 3rd dimension of the
Power of Rotary, he told the story of how a district project to raise funds and develop a program to
provide access to insulin for children in Venezuela has developed into a model program used around
the world.
The District Governor reminded us that, in the words of Past RI President Clem Renouf "Rotary
has given ordinary men and women extraordinary opportunity to do more with their lives than they
ever dreamed possible."
Following his presentation, Anne Engers was presented with the designation of Paul Harris
Fellow, in recognition of her contribution to the Rotary Foundation.
In other club news, members were reminded that the time to sell tickets for the Gas Giveaway
and game tickets is coming to an end. Tickets for $ 200 BP gas card, and 2 $50 BP gas cards are on
sale through Friday November 4; tickets are $ 1 each, or 6 for $5. The club is also offering 2
tickets to the Fl-FSU game; tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. The winners will be announced at half
time at homecoming on Friday November 4. Still need tickets? See any Rotarian.
Other visitors included Jo Buckles, Assistant District Governor, and Cindy Slaughter, both from
the Trenton Rotary Club, Gayle Lovelace from Vision Realty, and the two student guests, Brandi
Kirkland and Courtney Elton.

October Customer Appreciation
Winner


Log Cabin
Quilters
Log cabin Quilters met
Thursday, October 28 at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. It
was visitor's day. We had
eight come over from
Summerfield near Belleview.
We also had Alton and Delores
Quinn from Ocala. Alton
makes our spool holders and
they plan to be at the Quilt
Show, bringing their spinning
wheels and wool to make yarn.
It was a very enjoyable day
and everyone had a great time.
Tuesday, Jarrod and ten
boys were out and they planted
onions, peeled pears to can,
hulled pecans, mowed, cleaned
flower beds and one built a
new frame for my squash vine.
It is so good to teach some and
others already know how to
work. As I have said before,
we couldn't keep the Museum
like it is as it's hard to find
people who want to work.
Betty Dillon has made a
quilt for a neighbor's boy and
we know he will be proud of it
and take good care of it.
Delores brought in a strip quilt
top made with two in strips. It
is very colorful and how she
can get it finished. Pat and
Alice folded and filled the
envelopes with notices for our
Quilt Show and they will go in
the post office tomorrow.
Lunch was good with bean
soup, meat loaf, rice, creamed
corn. -pji'nt]. i'rcci, Liejii

Forty-two volunteers
came out on a brisk sunny
-October Saturday and rid the
roads and river of
approximately 3000 pounds
of trash.
Everyone who came
out, whether they made food
for the volunteers, cleaned the
river, cleaned the roads or
drove the pick up trucks had a
great day and contributed to
the effort to keep Jena and
Steinhatchee beautiful.
Steinhatchee School was
well represented with faculty
and staff including: Patricia
Hurd, Anna McDow,
Mevelyn Putnal and Lynda
Rutenkroger. Parent, Moises
Martinez, brought ,his two
children, Jennifer and
Rodrego, to help. The other
student volunteers were:
Vicky Jeneraux, Nancy
Emery, Jeremiah Emery, JT.
Morgan and Casey Barnett.
They cleaned the Jena side of
the bridge and some of the
marsh under the bridge a
very "wet" job, as their
parents will attest.
Cleaning the Jena Boat
Ramp area was Brian
Goddard. Brian works like a
Trojan every year getting
over 200 pounds of trash,
maybe more, every year just
from this one hundred square
yard area. It is one of the
worst areas for litter bugs.
The AARP represented
by Bud and Grace Shassere,
Judy Gantenbein and Gerry
Morehouse cleaned Hwy 51
from Tri County Electric to
Cooey's Island. The Garden
Club volunteers and spouses,
i Gail and Bob Bartlett, Mickey
and Don Nyberg and Peggy
Glass, cleaned Hwy 51 from
Cooey's Island to Boggy
Creek. Andy and Dalton
Johnson picked up the
$ collected bags and brought
he,*them back to the dumpster at
the Community Center.
Other bags were taken
directly to the Taylor landfill.
1* Beta Sigma Phi
/ members cleaned Hwy 51
from Roy's to Tri County
Electric a week earlier. Jeffie

Barbara and her husband, P.
J. Maloney came out again to
pick up. What great sports!
They cleaned much of School

This is another of
Steinhatchee's worst areas for
litter. Ann, Sandra and Doris
also came out Saturday to
help prepare and serve lunch
to the volunteers. Ann serves
as Community Center
chairman on the Steinhatchee
Community Projects Board.
The Projects Board provided
the lunch and tee shirts for the
event.
Three Georgia part
timers in Steinhatchee, Gary

Clark, came out to volunteer
and cleaned the Jena Road

have people take time to
contribute to the community

for the volunteers. Rhoda
does all this volunteer work
while taking care of her 102
year old mother. Ann Boy
does all this volunteer work
while suffering through two
shoulder operations and a foot
that needs surgery. You
younger folks, who stayed in
bed Saturday morning, take
note!
A special recognition
goes to the oldest volunteer,
Hub Baxter, who drove his
pickup and collected trash
bags. Even though Hub is
pushing 80 he was throwing
those bags into the dumpster
like a teenager. Wish we
could all be that agile at any
age.
Cleaning the river
around their riverfront houses
were, Bonnie Heaton, Rhoda
Moehring and Jeanne Black.
They brought in a truckload
single handedly. We need
more folks to help with the
river next year. Canoes are
especially effective.
Everyone who came out
had a good time in the fresh
air and made our little piece
of paradise a little more

Author Timothy A. Weeks ...
By Terri Langford
Children's Author,, Timothy A. Weeks, recently visited the
Dixie County Public Library and Steinhatchee Elementary School
where he donated his regional best seller, "The Wise Mullet of
Cook Bayou." Illustrated by his mother, Jeanne Weeks, she and
Timothy have enjoyed attending book signing and visiting schools
throughout the Gulf Coast Region.
The story is of three mullet, "one wise, one middling, and one as '" 't, I *, -h
dumb as the mud he ate every day for breakfast." While the .. ..
middling and dumb fish are short lived in the story, it is the wise -
mullet's adventures while he navigates through the perilous seas
that make the story.
Weeks' description of the bays and bayous come from his roots as a fisherman in hs hometov,'n of P.tianma Cir,, Florida. \\ eek
noted that he spent the first half of his life catching mullet with his Papa, Captain David. He worked alongside his father as well, who
was a commercial fisherman and was his number one deckhand.

Attention Veterans
First, let me just say that it is an honor for us to pay respect to those
who have served and are serving in our military services. Some folks get
confused about Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Let me just put it in the
simplest of terms. Veterans Day honors those veterans living and
Memorial Day honors those who have passed away. November 11th is
Veterans Day. While Gilchrist County presently doesn't have an organized
Veterans Day ceremony, it is hoped that in the future it will. The
Historical Society annually sponsors the Memorial Day activities in May.
Realizing that this type of activity does require funding it is hoped that our
local community will respond to the need to honor our living veterans.
Please support our veterans by attending one of the many local Veterans
Day ceremonies.
An update on the Fiscal Year 2007 VA Budget In the 109th
Congress, meeting the nation's commitment to its veterans is a national
priorir, and the ongoing cost ofr i'.ar Veterans past. present, and future -
earn the benefits pro\ ided them by, a grateful nation. Full funding of the
Department of \eterjran Affairs t\ Ai is a major legislative objective of
each major \eteran'- ser ice orgarizaiion each and e'ery 'fiscal year.'
Unfortunately all enrolled veteranss still do not recerne timely access to
health care withini n VA's o.n acceptable access standards. Regrettably,
there are still eligible 'eierans prohibited from enrolling in VA's,
integrated health care dellier, s., siem because of inadequate funding.
The Amencan Legion participated in the congressional hearing in the
House \e[erans' Affairs Committee %where the \A model and
-nethodolog%, for determining the \VA's annual budgetary needs. The
American Legion remains convinced the current model and methodology
is still broken and is deeply concerned that VA officials will be forced,
once again, to ration care in Fiscal Year (FY) 2006.
Medicare Reimbursement,- VA is prohibited from billing the Centers
for Medicare and Medicaid Services iCMS) for the treatment of Medicare-
eligible veterans for non-service-connected medical conditions. Included
in VA's discretionary funding are collections from \ererans and third-party
health insurance companies, except Medicare. Medicare is the nation's
largest health insurance program a federally mandated, prepaid health
* insurer. All veteranss enrolled in the nation's largest integrated health care
system (VA) are placed in priority, groups identified in Title 38, USC.
Priority Groups 1-6 are clearly entitled to certain levels of care at no cost
to the veteran. Enrollment of Priorir, Groups 7 and 8 veterans is
conditional on the ability to bill and collect co-payments and third-party
reimbursements. The vast majority of Priority Groups 7 and 8 veterans are
.Medicare-eligible. therefore, ha. ing an incredible. ad' erse fiscal impact, on
\'A's capability to retrieve third-parrt reimbursements. This fiscal
quagmire forced a prohibition on all new' enrollments of Priority Group 8
veterans. The American Legion strongly recommends allowing VA to bill
and collect from CMS for the treatment of Nedicare Eligible Veterans
Recently a representamive of the American Veterans Organization.

Trick Or Treat


Who was this beauty out on the town October 31s'?

Boyd Works For

Dairy & Poultry Farmers
WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida), a member of the House Appropriations Committee,
today voted in favor of the Conference Report on the Agriculture
Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2006 (HR 2744). In this
legislation, Congressman Boyd secured $1 million for the study
of dairy and poultry waste treatment in Suwannee, Dixie and
Lafayette Counties. This legislation will also continue funding
the North Florida Watershed Project.
The study will allow local dairy and poultry -farmers to
develop a proposal to create a solid waste removal and treatment
facility. By planning and implementing conservation practices,
the waste management system will reduce the volume and
nutrient content of manure from dairy and poultry operations in
the Suwannee River basin.
"Waste removal can present a serious problem for farmers,"
said Congressman Boyd. "This funding helps our dairy and
poultry farmers meet the environmental standards in place while
also developing a waste management system for the Suwannee
River basin. After working extensively with local dairy and
poultry farmers, I am confident this program will greatly benefit
Suwannee, Dixie and Lafayette Counties."
This program was developed through the combined efforts of
the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the
Suwannee River Partnership, and the Suwannee River Water
Management District. The goal of the program is to encourage
conservation, development and sound use of land, water and
related resources while allowing dairy and poultry operations to
remain profitable industries in the area.
In addition, this legislation allocates funding for the North
Florida Watershed Project to continue assisting the 45 dairies and
107 poultry operations identified in the project region with
innovative and cost-effective methods to curb animal waste
spilling into critical water reserves. Operating on a 65-35 cost
share basis with individual farmers, each project is carefully
designed to prevent harmful nitrates from entering the fragile water
delivery systems that flow through Florida's panhandle and empty
into the Gulf of Mexico.
"The North Florida Watershed Project is reaching the home
stretch, and I am r er glad it has' been a priority to continue the
funding for this important and successful project," Boyd' stated.
"This program is fundamental to the agricultural community's
effort to preserve Florida"s water quality."


An Evening Of Remembrance
Are you grieving the death of someone you love? Are you
dreading the upcoming Holidays because that person won't be with
you this year? Grief affects each of us differently but one of the
common bonds among all who grieve is trying to somehow
"celebrate" the Holidays when the sadness inside takes away any
desire to even acknowledge the Holiday season. Yet, our families
and friends who may not be as affected nor grieving as we are may
expect us to "get over it" and join in on the family celebration in
spite of what we are feeling inside.
If you are still grieving a loss of a loved one, the "Evening of
Remembrance" at the E.T. York building of the Haven (formerly
Hospice of North Central Florida) Hospice center in Gainesville
may help. It is a special evening sponsored by the members of the
North Central Florida Bereavement Coalition designed to provide
comfort and information to help those who are grieving get
through the Holidays.
The evening will begin with a welcome by the Hospice staff
and some information by a grief specialist about things that can be
done to remember your loved one in the course of the season. Then
prayers of comfort will be offered by clergy of various faiths and
religions in their own traditions followed by candle lighting. Once
the prayers have been offered, everyone present will have the
opportunity to write the names of their loved one on symbolic
doves and to light a candle in memory of the loved one. The candle
and dove may then be placed in the beautiful candle lit garden with
the gentle music of a harp in the background. Refreshments and a
time of fellowship will then follow. Special activities for children
are also planned.
This is the second annual event. Last year there were over 100
people in attendance and all were blessed by the event. This special
evening will not make up for your loss but it will help you to honor
the name of your loved one and celebrate his or her memory. The
event will be held on November 8 at 6:30 PM at the E.T. York
building of Haven Hospice in the Health Park Center on north 39"
Avenue in Gainesville (about 1/2 mile east of 1-75). For more
information call Pastor Howie Grimmenga at 498-3301.

Accidental Hostess
This is one of those fun stories that give you an edge in a party
conversation where you know something that really no one else
knows. But they think they do. Maybe you can use it someday if
you get on the Millionaire show.
It's about Priscilla. She was a gorgeous talented young woman
who definitely made her mark on society and we are talking
Washington society here. The kind of society where your position
is everything. Priscilla was the wife of President John Tyler's
oldest son ,Robert. The first lady had become ill and bedridden,
and Priscilla found herself filling in for her mother-in-law as the
official hostess of the White House.
I'm sure you know that the White House is virtually the center
of Washington, both official and unofficial. To her own
amazement, she fit iri perfectly. She was astonished by the facility
with which she greeted cabinet ministers, diplomats, generals, and
admirals. She wrote to her sister of her role,'"I am considered
'charmant' by the Frenchmen, 'lovely' by the Americans and 'really
quite nice, you know' by the English."
Priscilla absolutely reveled in the wardrobe her father-in-law
bought for her. One dress, she told her sister, was a "pearl-colored
silk that would set you crazy." And believe me; Priscilla needed
all the dresses the president could afford. Scarcely a night passed
without an official or social dinner.
As the first vice president to ascend to the White House, Tyler
r had enemies galore who sneeringly called him "His Accidency."
The president saw entertaining as his only hope of building a
following in the capital. The president also sent Priscilla and
Robert to represent him at other capital parties. For more than two
years, Priscilla was, in President Tyler's words, the "resident
genius of the White House." Her schedule was daunting. One
night she would have a formal dinner for 40 congressmen and their
wives and the next day might see a reception for 1,000 people with
hours of handshaking.
The pace finally got to Priscilla one evening. She was four
months pregnant, and her first child (still very young) demanded
Constant attention. She continued to rush around and finally
collapsed in the lap of Secretary of State Daniel Webster. Robert
threw ice water on the both of them. She recovered, but when her
mother-in-law died in the White House, nearly all entertaining was
halted for more than a year in mourning. That pretty much ended
Priscilla's glorious reign as the official White House hostess.
So, what's the little party secret I promised you in the
beginning? Well, before the charming Priscilla was the official
White House hostess, she was a professional actor, appearing with
her famous father in a number of plays. So It's a Little Known
Fact that Priscilla Tyler was the first actor to live in the White
House...not Ronald Reagan. Ronnie was the first actor to be
president, but he was not the first professional actor resident of the
place. Priscilla was! I hope you win on Millionaire!

DID YOU KNOW?
If you're throwing money at a woman, spend it right.
According to a British study, the best gifts in a serious courtship
are extravagant but have no take away value for her (to deter gold
diggers) for instance, expensive concert tickets or a weekend
getaway, not rent money. Costly gestures indicate long-term
intentions. From an evolutionary perspective, women are
motivated to mate with men who are likely to stick around and
help support babies. Dates that require considerable planning are
also effective. Study coauthor Peter Sozou, Ph.D., says, "Anything
that takes up a lot of a man's time as long as the woman knows that
could be a signal of future commitment." (Men's Health)
Turns out chicken soup isn't just good for your soul; it's good
for your abs. Researchers at .Pennsylvania State University found
that snacking on soup can help speed weight loss. The study
tracked 147 men and women who followed reduced-calorie diets
for a year; those who are one serving of soup twice a day lost 50
percent more weight than those who ate healthful but carbohydrate
heavy snacks, such as baked chips or crackers. Creamy clam
chowder doesn't count, says lead research Barbara Rolls, Ph.D.
You want broth-based soups. Try the chicken-noodle or vegetable-
beef varieties of Campbell's microwavable Soup at Hand; each
contains less than 100 calories. (Men's Health)
Kids get about two hours less sleep per week night during the
school year than they do during the summer. Not only can chronic
sleep loss cause inattention and bad moods, it can also affect
school performance. To help your teen get the nine hours of sleep a
night she needs, encourage her to avoid drinks with caffeine after
lunchtime. Don't allow TV, video games or computer use within an
hour of bedtime, and .never let kids sleep with the TV on (the
flickering light inhibits restful slumber). Limit evening jobs and
extracurricular activities if they interfere with bedtime. (Family
Circle)
Seven out of 10 teachers say their classrooms don't get
regularly disinfected by school custodians. To minimize cooties,
teach your kids to wash hands often, scrubbing for at least 20
seconds. And remind them to cough and sneeze in the crook of
their arm instead of their hands. (Family Circle)
Go ahead and dig through your 'kid's leftover Halloween
goodies for pieces of dark chocolate. A recent study published in
the journal Hypertension found that eating a 3 and a half ounce
piece of flavonoid-rich dark chocolate daily lowers blood pressure
and improves insulin sensitivity. The darker or the more
bittersweet the chocolate, the higher the flavonoids; white and milk
chocolate, however, contain little or none.
If your mother constantly harps on you about cracking your
knuckles, telling you that you should stop it so you don't get
arthritis, take heart. Not only will it not give you arthritis, but also
it seems to prevent it, according to research from Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore, MD. In an observational study of 100 men
and women with an average age of 59, osteoarthritis occurred
significantly more often in those who said they never cracked their
joints than in those who did.
Scientists have discovered that a compound in olive oil has the
same pain-relieving action as ibuprofen. Researchers at the Monell
Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia believe that means olive
oil could have the same health benefits as regular low doses of
anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, which reduce the risk
of heart attack, stroke, Alzheimer's disease and some cancers. (The
National Enquirer)
