Grouper Ban

Partially

Overturned
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last week reports of the
grouper ban being reversed hit
lne\ spapers_ with an
enthusiastic "\es-" b', sports
fishermen throughout the
coastal regions of the Gulf of
Mexico. While it is true.that a
federal judge heard the case
and reversed the ban, it is
important to understand that
there are NO changes to
Florida's state rule; that
according to officials at the
Florida Wildlife Commi'ssion
The decision b\ the federal
judge means that many species
of grouper can be caught in
federal waters, which start nine
miles offshore in the Gulf.
However, red grouper are still
off-limits until at least the end
of the year in those federal
waters.
However red grouper can
be caught in state waters, but
chances of that are slim as the
prize fish are normally found
in much deeper, federal waters.
Bottom .line; the rule for
grouper in federal waters, past
nine miles from offshore, is


that anglers are allowed to
catch up to five grouper per
day, but none can be red
grouper.
Fishermen found catching


grouper, other than red
grouper, within the state
boundaries, from the shoreline
to nine miles out, are subject to
fines.


Deputy Involved In

Accident While Responding

'By Terri Langford Staff Writer
While responding to an accident involving injuries, a Dixie
County Sheriffs Deputy, found himself involved in an accident
after an unknown driver caused the deputy to take evasive action

Road while an unknown vehicle was westbound on NE 206th Ave
failed to stop for the deputy where the two roads intersected and
caused the officer to brake and steer left in order to avoid hitting
the unknown vehicle. King's patrol car ran off the road and struck
a fence, two mobile home steps, and a camper shell before coming
to a stop.
.King tried to move his car in order to pursue the unknown
vehicle but was unable to due to one of his tires being blown. The
vehicle was a new model, dark colored four-door Pontiac Grand
Prix. Anyone having any information on this incident is asked to
contact the Sheriffs Department or the Florida Highway Patrol.
King was unharmed in the accident. Damage to the patrol car
was estimated at $2,000.00.

Alito appointment a shrewd move?
Few of us had heard of Samuel Alito before President Bush
named him to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day
QO'Connor. Of course, this is often the case with Supreme Court
appointments, isn't it?
Vi Based on the : information that has surfaced since his
nomination, Sam Alito looks like good material. He appears to be a
conservative, and what's known as a "strict constructionist" or an
" riginalist" when it comes to interpreting the Constitution. This
Would mean that he won't be giving weight to public opinion polls,
Nfew York Times editorials or the priorities of European socialist
governments when making decisions from the bench.
" In other words, he appears to be exactly the type President Bush
said he would to appoint to the Supreme Court. So, why didn't he
appoint Alito in the first place, instead of Harriet Miers?
Believe me, I have no inside track as to what goes on in the
1W(hite House, but I have a sneaky hunch that George W. was just a
trifle miffed at First Lady Laura Bush for having gone public with
tfe statement that she hoped the President would appoint a woman
tW fill the vacancy. It would have been one thing for her to mention
it to him privately, but her role is to be supportive, not competitive.
Iin inclined to think that one of the reasons why George W.. Bush
won a second term is that a lot of voters didn't want Theresa Heinz
Ierry calling the shots.
It could be that, with this in mind, Bush appointed someone he
figured would run into trouble with his conservative base because
they wouldn't like some of the positions she's taken on the big
iisues, she has no judicial experience, and apparently had the
approval of Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. Ah, but he did
try to appoint a woman, Laura, so now let's let George make next
appointment, all right?
f\ This way, the fact that there were several women Bush could
have appointed who would have registered as better qualified than
Ns. Miers with friend and foe alike could be swept under the rug,
giving the President an opportunity to say, "Well, I tried," even if
he didn't try very hard.
In fact, I think Sam Alito could be the real "stealth
appointment" in this case. If Bush had appointed him right after
Jjhn Roberts got approved, there would have been a veritable orgy
cf vituperation by liberals and feminists, and the President of the
1tnited States might have wound up having to sleep on the couch.
George W's innovative move-if; indeed, that's what it was-
ifats one in mind of one his father pulled off 14 years ago when he
appointed Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. There was a
liberal majority in the Senate atthe time, and the appointment was
ti replace the late Thurgood Marshall, an unabashed liberal.
' Bottom line, Marshall was also black, and there was no way
ttiat a liberal Senate would approve a white conservative as his
replacement. Here again, I don't know this for sure, but I have an
iiea that Bush Sr. nominated Thomas, then put out the word in the
senate that, if Thomas wasn't approved; the next nominee would
ife more philosophically acceptable to the fashionable left, but also
white male, and do the senators really want the black community
t) ponder their preference for a white candidate to replace the only
lQack man ever to serve on the United States Supreme Court?
. Let's face it: Jesse Jackson never played the race card so
skillfully, and rarely for so worthwhile a purpose as to secure the
confirmation of a jurist who would faithfully uphold the
constitution.
. There will be ample time to discuss the Alito appointment in
iore detail and with a more informed perspective. Probably too
iiuch time, given the way the battle lines are being drawn, but we
sall see.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Veterans,
We would just like to thank you for risking your lives to fight
for us. First of all, you do a lot for us to help us have a safe home,
schools and to be able to praise the Lord. People that go to war and
fight are very brave to be doing what they do to help save our
country so that we can be free. To be free means that we can wear
what we want, eat what we want and love whom we want. That is
why we like people who go to serve in the military.
Second of all, you all have been everything to us and everyone
else. You did everything to keep us safe. You have been there
waiting to fight for us when we needed you.
Third, we care for all of you and you have shown that you care
for us. We wanted to say THANK YOU for that and for what you
have been doing for so many years.
In conclusion, thank you all so much for being there when we
need you to keep us safe!
Sincerely,
RRMS Sixth Grade Social Studies Class

Be Open To New Experiences At Any Age


My grandmother was a numismatist, although she didn't know
it. In other words, she was an avid coin collector.
She often gave old silver dollars to her grandchildren.
Fortunately, I still have the coin she gave me on my 13th
birthday. The 1883 silver dollar is in a little coin envelope
addressed in her beautiful penmanship "To Marie Anna Gingerich
from Grandma Moser." It is a very heavy silver coin.
I also have one-eighth of her Indian head penny collection,
Her large collection was passed on to her four children and my
mother passed her fourth to her two children.
The Indian head penny was minted from 1859 to 1909. My
collection includes pennies from the early 1880s through 1909.
My pennies have some small value, but mostly the collection
reminds me of my remarkable grandmother.
Because of my grandmother, I've always been fascinated by
coins. So I was very interested when I read recently that Steven L.
Contursi paid $8.5 million for a historic coin set.
Originally, the set was a gift to President Andrew Jackson
from King Ph'ra Nang Klao (Rama III) of Siam, now Thailand, in
1836. The coins range from a copper half cent to a $10 gold
piece. The set also includes an extremely rare 1804 United States
silver dollar, minted especially for this gift.
The coins were last sold for $4 million in 2001.
This set has special interest, because after Rama III died, his
brother Rama IV became king. And Rama IV was the Siam king
played by Yul Bryner in the movie "The King and I."
It isn't unusual for Contursi, who is president of Rare Coin
Wholesalers, to purchase coins priced from $2 million up, but
$8.5 million is a world record.
However, Contursi is an expert numismatist and knows what
coins are worth. He reports that the 1804 silver dollar in the set is
one of just eight dollar coins made in 1804 and is called the "king
of coins." Sold separately, it could bring as much as $6 million.
Contursi knows coins because he became a collector at a very
young age. In the 1960s, he lived in the Bronx and made money
by delivering papers. He sorted through every coin he received
and saved the valuable ones in cheap blue cardboard boxes.
Later, when he was a graduate student, Contursi sold the last
of his childhood coin collection to buy textbooks. The shop owner
was very impressed by his knowledge of coins and immediately
offered him a job.
At the time, he was studying physics. But in 197"5, Contursi
abandoned his dream of a career in physics to buy a coin store
and has been a numismatist ever since.
That decision changed his life forever, and he obviously loves
his work. What if Contursi had not been open to changing
directions? Would he still be in a laboratory performing
experiments instead of traveling the world in search of rare coins?
Goals are good. But sometimes surprises are even better.
Do you have a fixed idea of what will be happening in your
life next. month or in five years? If so, maybe it's time to open
your life to new experiences regardless of your age.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:

DIXIE SCHOOL CAMPUSES

GET A+


FOR CLEANLINESS
r We have had many people from in and out of the county make
a point to let us know how clean and appealing our school
campuses look. We decided not to keep this a secret, but to share
Speinenent these comments with the public.
Dennis W. Benett We are proud of the fact that 95% of our facilities are either
new or renovated. But the real challenge is to keep the facilities
looking good on a daily and yearly basis. Keeping the facilities in our district updated and clean is
hard work that must be done daily. We have a great team that works together starting with our
administrators that identify areas of need on our campuses. They send their checklist to Support
Services Director Mark Rains, who coordinates- the budgeting process to see that facility
maintenance and improvements are provided on a daily and yearly schedule. Keeping our facilities
updated and renovated falls on our maintenance department who always respond to their challenges.
When you look inside our facilities at our hall ways, restrooms, and cafeterias, you will see that they
are clean because of the pride our custodians have in their work. We have to remember if we see
something waiting to be picked up or cleaned, that this is a daily process where we work behind
2,100 students.
Recently, here are some of the comments that have been shared with us. Several parents in the
community have commented on how beautiful the grounds on our campuses look. A grandparent
who travels to high school football games throughout the area commented on how clean and well
maintained our sports facilities are compared to other schools he has visited. Students who returned
from another high school back to Dixie County High School made the comment that our high school
was so much cleaner than the one they previously attended.
Dixie District Schools take pride in providing our students with a clean and safe environment.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our administrators, maintenance department,
custodians, custodial contractor, and ground maintenance contractors for being part of a team that
cares about providing a quality school environment for our students.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2005


Commission Highlights
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of County Commissioners met last
Thursday, November 3rd for their regular meeting at 10:00 a.m.
with a full agenda and a full house.
County Engineer Frank Darabi was the first to go before the
Board. Darabi gave a synopsis of the impact fee study. He noted
that his report was a preliminary one but would enable the Board
Members to have time to review the study before their workshop.
Darabi relayed the reasoning behind the increase in impact fees
was growth. Without another source of funding the county will not
be able to provide adequate services to the residents. Darabi noted
that this problem is a statewide problem and not just here in Dixie.
Impact fees have to be used for specific uses such as law
enforcement; EMS, fire protection and a small portion would be
used to for administering the funds. Darabi recommended that
churches, schools and other non-profit organizations would be
exempt.
Once the Commissioners have ironed out the details the issue
will be open for review by the public at the public hearings during
the Commission meetings.
Darabi brought another matter up with the Board, which was
the spoil site in Horseshoe Beach and the possibility that the
County would give the Town of Horseshoe Beach a 15-acre
portion of the site for their proposed water plant. He noted that
without this land, Horseshoe would lose the grant monies that have
been set aside for the coastal community. He added that there is a
deadline of December 15th, 2005 and asked the Commissioners to
act before that deadline.
Horseshoe Beach Council Member Talmage Bennett spoke on
behalf of the Council and the citizens of Horseshoe. He stated that
the Town was facing serious water problems with contaminates
and pressure problems.
"The water is not fit to drink," stated Bennett. "Folks buy their
drinking water," he added. Bennett also pointed out that they
would not have enough pressure to get water to all the elevated
homes in Horseshoe, a requirement enforced after the Storm of the
Century.
The Commissioners stated that they would review the situation
and get back to Horseshoe and take action by the next meeting.
Pastor John Clark came before the Board at their request, the
Board's; on an issue that has brought opposition.
Clark is involved in the opening of a drug and alcohol
rehabilitation center. The center was hoping to build on a ten-acre
site donated by Joe Anderson off 55A. Neighbors in that area
called Commissioners with their concerns and many attended the
meeting stated they were not against the center itself, just the
location.
Anderson stepped up and stated that he sees such a great need
for such a center that he would allow it to be in his backyard,
giving them enough land in a grove of pines behind his house.
The Commissioners had another alternative and will be looking
into allowing the center to be built in an area behind the Cross City
Airport. The land would be fenced on one side by the airport and
ji, the other by the Cross City Correctional Institute. It was noted that
the County would still own the property. More details on this
J. center as plans unfold...
Michael Chaney, a consultant on the SHIP and CDBG
programs, brought good news to the Board.
Chaney has been working with County Coordinator Arthur
' Bellot, Cindy Dey in Finance and County Community Programs
Consultant Dick Edwards in getting the county's SHIP and CDBG
programs "up to code" so to speak. Chaney stated that the
county's recent review by Florida Housing, where these. funds are
generated, was a success.
Chaney told the Commissioners that they would be receiving
5602.000 from the Hurricane Housing Recovery Program. These
funds are to be used for damage sustained from the hurricanes this
season.
Chaney's other good news was that the Florida Housing Board
% ill be reviewing their findings during the county's recent
monitoring, and hopes they will reverse their earlier decision to
bi' hold back Dixie's $750,000 in SHIP funds. If they do, the County
should receive that funding in December.
Jerry Prater, County's Veteran Service Officer, gave an update
on the veterans monument being erected on the Greenway off US
19. The area where the monument will be placed has a covered
sitting area and will be grassed as well,
Jordan Green from the Florida Department of Transportation
owent over a number of the FDOT's funding programs. He noted
that he has been working closely with the County Coordinator,
Arthur Bellot on a number of projects. The Commissioners put in
their request for the state to work with the federal government on
getting the Shired Island Road repaved.
Another request comes for the loss of three lives this year alone
on at portion of US 19, approximately 11 miles north of Cross
City. The road comes out of a curve and straightens out
immediately, causing drivers to run off the road. The
Commissioners asked that some type of warning system be placed
there, or the curve removed.
Commissioner Lamb asked that the state take back CR 351.
When the once state road was turned, over to the county, Lamb
noted there wasn't much traffic. As the county has grown, so has
the traffic and CR 351 has become a main connection from SR 349
to US, 19. The county is unable to maintain the road with its
limited funds.
Green made note of all the Commissioners' requests and stated
that he would get back with them.
The next Commission Meeting will be held Thursday,
November 17th at 6:00 p.m. in the Commission Room at the Dixie
County Courthouse.
"FIRE"
Continued from page )

According to Di.\ie Volunteer Fire Department Spokeswoman,
SShannon Tompkinms, Sturte ant called 911 at appro\tmatel\ 11:41
a.m. reporting the first fire. Old Town VFD was quick to respond
and successful in putting out the fire which had started in the
garage area. Sturte ant told officials, lhich included the State Fire
Marshall that he had been using a small torch and thought he had
turned it off before lea\ ing to go to a neighbor's house.
ApparentlY the torch fell and re-ignited, catching some of the fuel
" on fire.
VWhen the fire unit left the home had been sat ed, with no
damage, other than the garage.
Fire officials had the power turned offal the garage and warned
the owners not to turn it back on. How ever, in an attempt to clear
ii the remaining fuel and propane from the area, Sturte\ant reported


to investigators that he had taken an extension cord with a shop
., light attached into the garage. At one point gas splashed into his
eye and while leading to w'ash it out pulled the cord causing the
.' light to fall and break. eventually catching the garage on fire again.
Srurtelant and Besterman left their home to go to \Val-Mart.
Two men from Florida Forest Products saw the fire %while on a
I delivery and called 911.
S When firefighters arrmied the home was fully engulfed.
: Sheriffs officials, EMS, and COP officers responded to the call as
well. Because of the size of the structure and materials in the
home, fire units from Fanning Springs, Trenton, Bell, Cross Cit'v,
I" District and Old Town, fought the blaze for hours and e en
went back the following day to put out "hot spots".
In the end the home %was lost along %with three vehicless and all
their possessions.
As of press time the State Fire Marshall was still investigating
the incident.


"DCF"
Continued from page 1

Bellot noted that she and her staff would not be able to fulfill
the contract with the DCF, due to the conditions required by an
ACCESS member. The county could choose to provide some or all
of the following computers to apply for assistance on line, use of
telephones to call DCF Customer Call Center, application drop off
point, use of printers to print application summary from web
application, verify identify of applicant, use of fax machine to fax
applications and other documents to DCF, use of copy machine to
copy application related documents, and provide assistance in
explaining the application process.
"We don't have the training or the staff to adhere to their
conditions, not to mention the money to fund it," stated Bellot.
The Commissioners response was one of disbelief and anger.
First that the DCF was closing their doors at the Cross City Office,
and that they had asked the county to pick up the responsibility of
the DCF.
"This is just another example of big government trying to shift
the cost of running their programs to local/county government,"
stated Commission Chairman Marcus Hays. All the
Commissioners agreed not to sign-up with the ACCESS program.
In a phone interview with DCF Spokesman Tom Barnes,
Tuesday, November 8t', it was explained that the DCF has been
moving away from the more traditional approach of clients coming
to a service center and speaking directly to a caseworker, to clients
using the telephone, fax, or computer to apply for benefits. "We
started this trend last year and it has proven to be a success in
many districts," stated Barnes.
Dixie is in District 3 which encompasses 11 counties, basically
the center of the state. Of those 11 counties five offices have
already been closed; Alachua, Trenton, Mayo, Jasper and Lake
Butler. Once the Cross City office is closed, clients will have to go
to the Chiefland Center. However the DCF hopes that they will be
able to find a partner in Cross City who will be able to provide
computer services for clients. "We look to churches and libraries
as potential sites for computer assistance," stated Barnes. Another
alternative here in Dixie County may be the Lake City Community
College Dixie Center who already has a public computer lab.
Barnes stated that the goal of DCF is to save taxpayers money.
He noted that the DCF asked for fewer funds for the upcoming
budget, due to closures and other cuts that had already occurred in
the Economic Self Sufficient Services.
As of Septeriber 899 families were receiving food stamps in
Dixie County, with a total of 2,036 people within those families
benefiting. It is no secret that Dixie County is one of the poorest in
the state and that many of its citizens depend on those programs
funded by the DCF.
The fate of the eight employees at the Cross City Center is
unsure. Barnes noted that at this point no positions have been cut;
however, cuts are forth coming.
While the state looks at these closures as a way to save
taxpayers money the bottom line is that the taxpayer will still have
.the. burden of providing the services needed for DCF clients,
whether in church, a county office, or school, all funded by
taxpayers. These services are vital for many citizens survival.
While some of the services are temporary, they are necessary in
order for families to have a jump on becoming self sufficient.
Commissioner Buddy Lamb stated that residents should 'take
the time to contact not only the DCF, but also their State
Representatives and Senators, asking their support in keeping the
doors open at the Cross City office.
"It looks to me that if they need someone to do all those things,
that they need to keep the local office open," continued Lamb.
"This is going to hurt a lot'of folks that need help, and inany of
them won't have the means to travel all the way to Chiefland to get
help," he added.
Residents are encouraged to call DCF at 1-866-762-2237,
Congressman Allen Boyd at. 1-850-561-3579, and Senator Nancy
Argenziano at 1-850-487-5017, and Representative Will Kendrick
at 1-850-488-7870. Time is of the essence; call today and let your
voice be heard.

The Boyd Report
Saluting Service and Sacrifice
By Congressman Allen Boyd (D-FL)
Each November 11th our country comes together to remeriiber
our veterans who have served and sacrificed in the name 6of
freedom. These men and women in uniform selflessly stoQd-in
harm's way as the guardians of our most fundamental freedbrhs-
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. With approximately
71,000 veterans in North Florida alone, Veterans Day gives us-the
opportunity to express our collective gratitude and appreciation
for their noble service to our country. We must also take this
opportunity to renew our commitment to the men and women
who have worn the uniform in defense of this great nation.
As a combat veteran myself, I understand the sacrifices
veterans make to defend our country. Leaving family and friefids
behind is not easy, but protecting and serving America and all that
it stands for makes this a meaningful and noble sacrifice. Now is
the time for the federal government to recognize this sacrifice aind
fulfill our moral obligation to those who have fought for freedom
and democracy.
Unfortunately, many government leaders have failed to keep
the promise we made to our veterans by inadequately 'funding
veterans programs. Earlier this year, the Administration laid out a
budget proposal that was about $338 million below what the
Congressional Budget Office estimated was needed for fiscatyear
2006. While Congress rejected the Administration's slight, it is
blaringly clear that this Administration does not have the best
interests of our veterans at heart. Unquestionably, difficult
choices are before the public and Congress with respect to the
nation's budget priorities, and I have been a staunch advocate for
budget reform and fiscal responsibility. However, we cannot
promote fiscal restraint on the backs of the men and women who
serve our country. We must take care of those who defend our
country today and fulfill our debt to those who have defended us
in the past.
Sadly, the funding problems for veterans programs do not
stop there. In June, the Secretary of Veterans Affairs', Jim
Nicholson, acknowledged that the Department of Veterans Affairs
was short $1 billion for covering veterans' healthcare needs this
year. Congress was able to close the funding shortage by
providing $1.5 billion for veterans' healthcare needs this year.
However, these funds were appropriated after much time and
effort was spent correcting the VA's huge mistake, one that could
have been avoided with appropriate candor and accountability.
In addition to fighting for adequate funding for veterans
programs, I am also working to enact a new GI Bill of Rights for
the 21st Century. In 1944, we honored the Greatest Generation
through a Bill' of Rights, and in each major military conflict since,
we have honored the service of our soldiers. through a new GI
Bill. The new GI Bill of Rights focuses on improving veterans'
healthcare, including mental healthcare, to.meet the needs of our
returning troops. This bill would also end the Disabled Veterans'
Tax, which prevents disabled veterans from receiving military
retiree and veterans' disability benefits concurrently. have
worked with my colleagues in Congress to score a partiajl.repeal
of this tax, but the remaining disabled military retirees should be
allowed to receive all of their-promised benefits.
We must never shrink from our duty to care for America's
defenders. The more than one million service members, who
have died in defense of this nation, including now more than
2,000 from current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, deserve no
less than the promises made to them. We should be held
accountable for our promises to them. By ending the unfair taxes
on military families and disabled military retirees and improving
veterans' healthcare to keep up with the growing number of
veterans, we can honor our veterans through action and tangible
assistance instead of empty words and promises. This Veterans
Day, as we show our respect for the men and women who bravely
answered the call to duty, let us also recognize their service by
providing our nations' heroes with the respect, benefits and
services they have earned and deserve.

New Prospect Baptist News
Every day in God's house is a good day. Our choir sounded
especially good Sunday, after which we were again blessed with a
.special .song by our four young ladies' group, consisting of Aimee,
April, Kelly and Tracey...you did an excellent job, ladies! Bro.
Billy then brought God's message from Psalms 66:16-20, doing a
superb job in the process. After the morning service, we were
again blessed to have a baptismal service; in which three young
folks were baptized...God is still working!
We will have our monthly Business Meeting Wednesday
evening, November 9th. On Sunday, November 13th, we will have
our Thanksgiving Dinner "on the ground" in the church annex
immediately after the morning service. On November 14th and
15th, the Florida Baptist Convention will be held in Ocala.
We were pleased to have visitors again Sunday...we hope you'll
come again and bring others with you, as all visitors are welcome
at New Prospect. May you have a good week, and keep
praying...for our people in the military, those on church prayer
lists, our nation's leaders, and one another. May God bless and
keep you.

The First Baptist Family would like to thank the community for
participating in our first Harvest Festival. We were delighted at the
overwhelming response.of boys and girls of all ages.

about the family.
We're already discussing ways to make our next family event
even better. If you're interested in the ministries of First Baptist

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"David and Goliath"
Continued from last week I. the Da\ of the Lord, say when Samuel'
was old and his sons walked not in his %a',s., .e find that Israel could not
trust God to bring about another mo'e of the spirit and raise up another
true ministry to lead them Now they %%ere not opposed to Samuel'as such.
They still loed to talk about the "good old da,"'. hen the Spirni moted ir,
such a marvelous ivay through their prophetic ministry. But those days
were gone, and it'wa. time to organize this thing. It seemed like such a
good idea Protect us from our enemies Make us some lav.s to keep things
in order, so that we ill all speak the same things W,\hv. nearly ail the'
most spiritual men in Israel are in favor of it. it must be the % ill of God
I, the Da\ of the Lord, say But -here were some, like Samuel, who
, ept at the idea of organizing God's move in the earth. And he opposed it,
and pra,,ed against it But God saw that the people were determined, and
He said "Hearken uno the voice of ithe people in all that he. sa 'unto
thee for the, ha'e not rejected thee; but the, haje rejected me, that I
should not reign o\ er them "
I, the Day of the Lord. sa, Nov. this ,as God's word concerning the
whole idea of organizing His people. The people would not hjae agreed to
such strong language. But God said it not me. He told His prophetic
minisin to "protest" soleinnl," unto the people, and that's e\a.Ctl, .*. li. 1I
am doing today and liate been doing for ,cars. I Sam S 91
I. the Day of the Lord, sai\ And God. ihrougli Samuel, shov.ed the
people the manner of the King that should reign o'er them He would be
so nice in the beginning He would hate the anointing of God. and do
great exploits He would chase the Philistines., deils Aould be cast out.
Great things would be accomplished, and the people would be much
pleased %i nh him .And he would be a man of great stature. He would look
after their affairs. The responsibility of the local church could be thro,.nn
o er on the organization and its ecclesiastical leaders.
I. 'the'Day of the Lord1'-&ay'.i.iti:.Gnd saw' something else The time
%would soon come lwhien Saul \iuld put a strong bondage on the people
He V.ould take their harest' for'lin'.elf And their etffto s would be .nl',

No longer %would there be God-called men, spirit-anointed and allame v. ith

The Word Made
Flesh
"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say let us not be
'deceived into thinking that great
mass rallies, with hundreds and
thousands of people from various
sects assembled together in one
building, constitute the Body of
Christ. The Body of Christ is a
spiritual Body, and the unity in
that Body is a spiritual unity. In
this Body, Divine life can flow
from one member to another, and
from Christ the Head to all
members.
:I, the son of man, say that no
angel or spirit is given, nor can be
given, who had not been born a
Ti ihan in the world. Angels have not
been inimediatel:, created, but that
all who are in heaven, and have
been there, were first born men,
and after life passed in the world
are angels, no angels could exist,
except from a man; born in the
world, and that this is according to
divine order, will be seen from the
following consideration: 1. That in
man there is'ar angelic mind. 2.
That such a midd cannot be
formed except in nran. 3. Neither
can it be procrqated, and by
procreations be multiplied. 4. That
Spirits and angels.ience derive the
capacity. of subsistng and living to
eternity. 5. And o' being adjoined
and conjoined to he human race.
6. Whereb:, het% en can exist,
which was the end of creation.
That in man thire is an angelic
mind. It is a thhg known in the
Christian v.orld,'ithat man is born
1" for heaven, an that also, if he
lives well, he will come into
heaven and be here consociated
with the angel as one of them;
like% ise that soul or mind of
such a qualicN haih been given to
him, and %.hii is to live forever,
and that that n mnd viewed in itself,
is wisdom front the Lord grounded
in love to Hii, and that the angels
have also a lke mind; hence it is
etident. that. in man there is an.
angelic niin add to this, that that
mind is the tan himself, for every
man is a ran b) vinue of that
mind and stph a man as that mind
is; the bod.' ih whichh that mind
is clothed Itd encompassed in the
world, in itself is not the man, for
the bod 'annoti enjoy wisdom
from the L.d and love Him from
itself, but form its mind, for also it
is separate and rejected when the
mind is bout to 'depart and
become an angel.
I, the son of man, say the
reason wh, even also man comes
into ange c wisdom is, because
the super r degrees of the life of
his mind are opened; for every
man hath iree degrees of life: the
lowest degree is natural, and man
is in it curing his abode in the
world; tae second degree is
spiritual, pand in that degree is
every aigel. in, the inferior
heavens; the third degree is
celestial, in which is every angel
in the superior heavens, and man
is an aigel in proportion as the
superior degrees are opened. in
him in t e world by wisdom from
Sthe Lor, and by love to Him;
neverth less he doth not know in
the woi d that those degrees are
opened, until he is separated from
the firs -degree which is natural,
and tho separation is effected by
the dea of the body.
I, e son of man, say that
such -mind cannot be formed


except in man. The reason is,
because all divine influx is from
first principles into last, and by
connection with the last into
middle principles, and thus the
Lord connect all things of
creation, on which account also
He is called the First and the Last.
Love you. Continued next week.
Let Us

veterans with all proceeds
from the distribution invested
in local programs for the ,
benefit of veterans and. their
families.
Each nine-piece poppy is
made by veterans for veterans
in Auxiliary-sponsored Poppy
Shops that supplement
physical and psychological
therapy needed by hospitalized
and disabled veterans'. The
Auxiliary provides' the
materials and the volunteers.
The veteran, makes the poppy
and is paid a small amount for
each painstakingly made
flower. For some it is his or
her only income. No matter
what the cost of maintaining
and supplying the Poppy
Shops, the memorial poppy is
never sold, but given in
exchange for contribution.
The Poppy program has
been part of Auxiliary
programming for more than 70
years. It has been estimated
that approximately 25 million
Americans wear the poppy to
honor America's war dead and
veterans, contributing over $2
million for rehabilitation and
welfare programs.
Post 383 invites all eligible
veterans and their families to
join; we have an active
Auxiliary Unit, Junior
Auxiliary, and SAL Squadron.

Make Way For Traveling Manatees
Heading For Warmer Water
Florida manatees are on the nioe, seeking '.armn water sites to
ki.Spend the winter. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva.ioen
qC_,ommission (FWC) appealed to boaters today to be especially
'.cautious to look out for nrianatees and be alert to changing speed
I ones on 'waterss a% s.
.Manatees general, start traveling to %%arm water w hen ithe air
temperature drops below 50 degrees or %when thie %water temperature
'- djps to 68 degrees. The FWC changes seasonal speed zone signs
- on many % vater\a s to accommodate manatee migration.
,I. The FWC said boaters should scan the water near, and in front
:. of. their vessels for ,s irls resembling large footprints, a repeutime
.' line of half-moon ss irls, a mud trail or manatee snouts or tails
;. breaking the surface.
C Kipp Frohlich, leader of F\\ C's Imperiled Species
l Management Section, said boaters can help manatees have a safe
. migration b.:
Stay ing in marked channels,
\Vearing polarized sunglass to impro\ e vision,
Abiding by posted boat speed zones.
Using poles, paddles or trolling motors when in close
proximitr to manatees, and
Having someone aboard to scan the v.ater for signs ot
n manatees while their vessels are under v. a,
"If \ou think ,ou see a n11anjtee, give it plenty of room,
because it may not be alone. It ma', have a calf or be ra\ clng

Weekly Sports

Commentary


Steve The


Spoiler Next


For Gators
GAINESVILLE --Now that those pesky
Vanderbilt Commodores are out of the way,
Florida Gator football players, coaches and fans
are allowed to use the "S" word. But they almost
choked on the "V" Saturday night.
The nearly unthinkable has happened. Vandy
took an early 7-0 lead and kept counter punching
every time Florida scored, before finally being
subdued in double overtime, 49-42.
Chris Leak's 16-yard touchdown pass to
Jemalle Cornelius in the 'second overtime, which
had to be reviewed before counting, proved the
difference. It was his third TD pass of the night.
In one of his best performances as Gator
quarterback, Leak led his 'team in rushing with 67
yards and two touchdowns, as well as completing
32 of 41 passes for 257 yards.
He was matched and surpassed by
Vanderbilt's brilliant Jay Cutler, who passed for
361 yards and four touchdowns. The difference
was that Cutler's last pass was intercepted to end
the game and Leak's was for the winning score..
By the fourth quarter Florida had lost
five starters to injury, including starting comer
Vernell Brown, who broke his tibula,, tailback
DeShawn Wynne, wide receiver Dallas Baker and
defensive lineman.Marcus Thomas.
"We're still 'battling for the SEC
Championship," said coach Urban Meyer, who
this Saturday gets to face Steve Spurrier, the most
I famous Gator of all.
Now the Gators must hope to eliminate one of
their'own in order to stay alive.
Spurrier could become Steve The Spoiler by


knocking out his old school.
In fact, Carolina beat Arkansas Saturday to go
6-3 and become bowl
eligible. Thus Spurrier,
himself, is still alive for the
SEC. Georgia must lose to
Auburn for either team to
have a shot.
Meanwhile, Spurrier is
even dusting off some of
his old post-game Gator
sayings and converting
them to the Gamecock
lexicon. After his fourth
straight comeback win over
an SEC opponent, a 14-10 decision over the
Razorbacks, Spurrier mused:
"This was one of the biggest of my career.
God has been smiling on the Gamecocks."
That was always one of his favorite lines after
the Gators won, which they did Saturday night,
but not so easily.
The Gator defense stepped up to preserve the
victory when cornerback Reggie Lewis picked off
Cutler's pass in the second overtime. It was Lewis
who had been called for two critical penalties in
the second half.
"To see Reggie Lewis make that play says a
lot for him he had a tough night," said Meyer.
Now it's on to the Low Country.
Both Spurrier and Gator coach Urban Meyer
have been dancing around this long-anticipated
meeting since they saddled up in their new jobs.
Though it was the Orange Bowl game
January 2002 that Spurrier last wore his Gator
visor and coached a game at his alma mater, his
Gator DNA is everywhere. Two members of the
current squad, linebacker Todd McCullough and
safety Jarvis Herring, played for him. Four others
were recruited and signed, but red-shirted: Center
Mike DeGory, defensive back Vernell Brown,
offensive lineman Lance Butler and offensive
lineman Jonathan Marvin. Wide receiver Dallas
Baker had to enroll in Massachusetts high school
to become eligible.
Now, we will see whether God is going
to smile on the Gamecocks or the Gators this time

Manatee Awareness Month -

More Important Now Than Ever!
Manatees are often called one of the most treasured
itarine-mammals on earth and,are considered by many to be. a
vital part of America's natural heritage. For the last several years,
Florida Governor Jeb Bush has signed a proclamation naming
November as "Manatee Awareness Month," the time of year
when manatees usually start returning to Florida's warm water

v inter refuges '
"The mahatee is Florida's official marine mammal, a
distinctive and valuable natural resource," reads the proclamation
recently signed 'bytl:e governor. -Many Floridians enjoy living in
a state where manatees live, and there are plenty of tourists
around the world who look forward todvisiting The Sunshine State
qto see these unique ;creatures.
"Manatee Awareness Month is a great tradition Florida's
governors have supported year after year," says Patrick Rose,
Save the Manate* Club's Director of Government Relations.
"Each year as Florida's human population grows, it is an
important reminder that we must watch out for these gentle
creatures. This year, it seems more important than ever as the
U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill that will, if
Passed by the Senate, greatly weaken regulations mandated by the
Endangered Species Act, which has protected America's
imperiled species for decades."
Club 'representatives also point out that increasing
demand for habitat development in Florida and other states has
fueled such efforts to weaken underlying protections for all
imperiled species as well as efforts to. downgrade their listing
status under these weakened laws. For example, Florida has
already downgraded the federally endangered red-cockaded
woodpecker and is likely to downgrade the endangered manatee
'despite evidence that most of the manatee population in Florida
has likely declined in recent years as a result of rising threats to
their future s-r% ival.
\\'atercraft collisions are the numbertone known cause
of manatee; mortality; Since record keeping began in 1974
through Octbber 31, 2005, 1,369 manatees have been killed by
boats. Additionally, manatees become entangled in crab trap and
monofilament fishing lines; they ingest debris: and they drown or
get crushed in flood gates and canal locks. Places where
.manatees feed, rest, breed and birth their young are shrinking
under the pressures of a rapidly developing state.
Rose, an avid boater and fisherman himself, explains
that Save t4le Manatee Club is asking the boating public to make it
their goal to slow down and give manatees a much-needed break.
To help spread the word about manatees, the Club is
giving away free manatee adoptions to the first 150 high school
-science classes that apply. Each "class will receive a one-year
membership in Save the Manatee ,Club that includes a photo of
the manatee they select for adoption, the manatee's biography,
adoption certificate,'a 38-page educator's guide and four-color
poster, and four newsletters with updated reports. To sign up, go
to http://www.savethemanatee.org/adopt teacher form.cfm.
"There are many ways we can all work together now
to make a difference in the lik es of Florida's manatees today and
for the future," says Rose.
To brush up on manatee facts and how your actions can make a
difference, or to sign up for Save the Manatee Club's new free E-'
Newsletter, visit the web site at www.savethemariatec.ore, call 1-

This Bear player manages to gain yardage against a PKY player in the Homecoming
Game.


A fired-up Bear team burst through a sign made by the cheerleaders to take the field
last Friday night.


By John Kelley
Homecoming 2005 didn't
go as planned for the Varsity
Bears when they lost to PK
Yonge 42-6 on Friday night.
The Bears started the game


with momentum, when they
scored first in the opening
drive. After a steady gain of
yards, through 11 downs the
Bears scored with an "over
the top" dive into the end


zone by Robert
"Homecoming King" Yarrell.
The extra point attempt went
short and the score was 6-0 in
favor of the Bears.
The Blue Wave answered
this immediately by scoring


, Surf- N-Turf


in just five plays. The point
after attempt -Was ",-good
making' the score 7-6. The
Wave scored again in the first
minutes of the second quarter,
after a turn over on 'downs,
making the score 14-6 after
they make the extra point.
In the next series, the
Bears offensive line ,was
forced to punt from their own
45-yard line. PKY drove the
ball deep. into Bear territory
and scored again with 27
seconds left on the clock until
halftime. With the score now
21-6, PKY kicked off to the
Bears and regained
possession of the ball on a
pass interception from
Quarterback Pinner. PKY
scored again with less than 10
seconds until halftime, with
the Bears trailing 28-6.
The Bears held PKY at
bay during the third quarter
with neither team scoring, but
at the start of the fourth
quarter, PKY stepped up their
play action and scored twice
more to effectively 'shut out
the Bears. The final score was
42-6. It was a tough loss for
the Homecoming crowd.
Coach Wilkerson spoketo
the senior players in the post
game huddle with this
statement, "This is just one of
those years, you all have fiufig
in there and fought hard ,hll
year. I have enjoyed this year
as your coach." He then
addressed the underclassrien
by saying, we have a long
way to go to get to where we
should be; we need to work to
get better in the off season
and come back ready to play
next year."
Off the -field, Coach
Wilkerson didn't quite know
what to say about the game,
"both teams were -pretty
evenly matched going i -to
tonight's game, I just don't
know what to say."
\ Well, Coach, in your o'% n
words, "we just need to get
.better next year.",.
In the mean time... .O
BIG RED!

many older people lack, and promote feelings of well-being and
social connectedness, two essential components of any anti-aging
program. Apart from banishing loneliness, pets can actually lower
your blood pressure, researchers have discovered. 'Just stroking a
* dog or cat can banish stress-related hypertension. Also, having a
pet encourages you to get some exercise. Walking your dog or
tossing a ball of yarn for your cat will improve circulation and
cardiovascular health. (Sun)
If you gab on your cell phone during a first romantic dinner,
the chances are you can count on your date getting your number as
a big zero. A whopping 46 percent overall of both women and men
delete dates from their lives for inconsiderately using a cell phone
on a restaurant rendezvous, reveals a survey by the New York City
dating service It's Just Lunch. "Your date wants to hear you talk to
them, not someone else," says Alan Beyer, vice president of the
dating service. "I think you should definitely leave your cell phone
off during a date." The cell phone faux pas ranks number two
behind the ultimate date doomer, body odor, says the survey.
About 60% of the men and women surveyed would instantly cross
stinky dates out of their little black book. The third worst
relationship killer is being rude to waiters and waitresses. About
40% of respondents wouldn't give disrespectful people a second'
chance. (Sun)
-Your face speaks volumes about you. More than just being
pretty or handsome, it tells others if you are competent, trustworthy
and likeable. That's the word from researchers at Princeton
University, whb determined that we judge people's competence,
trustworthiness and likeability based solely on their facial features.
Those who had a round face and big eyes -- that classic baby face
look -- were consistently judged to be less competent.

The Best Reason
That popular new television show The West Wing has sure
made Americans a lot more aware of the White House staffers. Oh,
we always knew they were there, and we even remember some of
the more famous ones, especially the ones that have to stand in
front of the press corps and answer the hard questions. I think
what has surprised most of us is just how much influence those
unelected people have over what happens to the rest of us. Yes, we
elected their boss, but so many decisions are made at lower levels
that have such far reaching effects. And the West Wing has kind of
taught us that.
I wonder if you know that our early Presidents really had no
staffs worth mentioning. Most of them made do with a single
secretary which was often a relative or close friend. James
Buchanan had his nephew do the honors. Franklin Pierce's
secretary was his lawyer And you may realize that not of them
really became famous for much else... well %Ith the exception of
one. That was Thomas Jefferson's secretary. He was just a young
man, but his family and the Jefferson's were old and close friends.
When the young man's father died, Jefferson took a personal
interest in him. Unlike staffers today however, he actually lived in
the White House and worked in a pair of rooms that had been
constructed just for him.
If you didn't know it, Jefferson was something of a workaholic,
writing most of his o% n letters, which hit over 25,000 by the end
of his long life, by the way. But Jefferson's relationship with his
secretary was a close one. They spent hours and hours working
together. Very few things happened that the secretary didn't know
about or had something to do with. It was a super education for
the young man, and his association with the talented genius of
'Thomas Jefferson would serve him well for years to come.
One humorous note that we found. It seems that Jefferson had
more trouble than most Presidents with his White House servants.
They simply would not do their jobs well. The butlers did not get
along with Jefferson's French chef.' The maids hated the stewards
and porters conflicted with kitchen help. In the secretary's words,
the White House was dirty and messy and no amount of prodding
from the President could get the staff to work. Well, there was a
reason for that; you see, in an effort to economize, the president
had brought most of the workers from his home in Monticello.
Jefferson himself wrote to his daughter and said, "I have found the
ultimate reason to abolish slavery. If a white servant misbehaves,
you can fire him. You can not fire a person that you own and are
responsible for." Maybe not the best argument to abolish slavery,
but it was certainly a darn good one. Had it not been for
Jefferson's young secretary, the situation may have grown
intolerable. But fortunately he was there and was able to keep the
peace and get the President's House back in order.
And we don't really remember that staffer for any of that, but
we sure remember him from a few years later when he did
something that we are celebrating 200 years later... the opening of
the, west.. It's a Little Known Fact that Thomas Jefferson's close
friend, secretary and house monitor and later famous ibxplorer...
was none other than Meriweather Lewis... of the Le% is and Clark
expedition.

Retired Educators Day Proclaimed
By Governor Bush
Retired Educators Day, Sunday, November 20, 2005 is
designated to pay tribute to the dedicated individuals who have
spent their lives teaching the younger generation skills necessary
for success in life.
What better way of doing this than in the churches, recognizing
these individuals as a part of the service. The Dixie County Retired
Educators Association asks the local churches to recognize the
retired educators in their congregation on the third Sunday in
November.


On the day the rest of the nation commemorates
Columbus Day, the citizens of Berkeley, California, cele-
brate Indigenous People's Day, in honor of those living in
America before Columbus.

RRMS 6th Grader Places First In
Essay Contest
Lina Davis, a RRMS 6"' grader, received $100.00 for placing
first in the Patriot's Pen Essay contest on "Who are Today's
Patriots". Competition was from Dixie, Levy and Gilchrist County
Middle Schools. VFW Post 5225 sponsored the contest.
Who Are Today's Patriots?
Today's patriots are people who care, support and love our
country. As examples: our President, George W. Bush, our soldiers
and our firefighters. All of these people have helped and shown
love for our country in some way.
First of all, George W. Bush is a major patriot. He is the
President of our country. He has led us for almost five years now
and we are one of the most successful countries in the world. He
has sent us to war to fight for our country's freedom and the
freedom of other countries. His decisions affect our country in
great ways.
Secondly, the soldiers who have gone to war for our country
are patriots. Soldiers are the men and women who work hard and
risk it all for our country's freedom in wars like. World War I,
World War II, Vietnam War, the Korean Conflict, Desert Storm
and more recently, the War on Terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Soldiers are very brave people. If it were not for soldiers, America
would not be nearly as successful as she is now.
Finally, the firefighters of America are patriots. They have also
put their lives on the line for this country. During the 9-11 attack,
when the World Trade Center buildings were hit by planes, the
firefighters were rushing into the buildings and up the stairs to help
people while the citizens were rushing out to safety. But the
firefighters don't just help in major disasters, they help put out
fires and save people everyday, everywhere. A firefighters work is
never done.
In summation, today's patriots are people who devote their
lives and care for their country. Anyone can be a patriot: George
W. Bush, the soldiers, the firefighters and even you. All you have
to do is love, support and defend your country. God bless America!

This past Sunday, November 6th, 2005 the Tri County Detachment 1018 held their Annual
Lined States Marine Corp Birthday Ball at the Putnam Lodge in Cross City with Lieutenant General
Robert F, Milligan, Retired, as their Guest of Honor. This year the Corps celebrated their 230th
Birthda,. honoring the Corps and all those who have served, both past and present.
Born in New Jersey on December 27, 1932, General Milligan was one of seven children raised
on a farm. He was the sixth member of his family to serve in the military. His brother, Richard, is a
retired Na. v Rear Admiral.
NMilligan earned ;a B.S. degree in engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy and a master's
degree in business administration form the University of Rochester. Bob and his wife, June, reside in
the Panhandle of Florida.
Miligan was Commanding General of Fleet Marine Forces, Pacific, and Marine Corps Bases,
Pacific, ith headquarters in Hawaii, he was responsible for 92,000 Marines and sailors serving at
18 bases and stations stretching from the continental United States to the far reaches of the Pacific
and Indian Oceans. After 39 years of distinguished service, Lt. General Milligan retired in
September of 199L.
In 1994 General Milligan was elected as Comptroller of Florida and re-elected in 1998 to a
second term. He retired from political service in 2003. During his service he gained the reputation
for doing what was right, not what was political. .
Opening ceremonies included the reading of a message from the Marine Corps Commandant by,
Noel Desmond followed by the Marine's Prayer by Chaplain Ted Henley, and Rick Gonzales
reading of a message by General Lejeunes.
As the 'escorts entered the main dining area, two by two, they formed two lines which Tri County
Detachment Commandant Harry Hopwood escorted Lt. General Robert Milligan through. Taking
their places at the head of the line they watched and saluted as the Color Guards presented the
Marine Corps and US flags followed by the singing of the Marine Hymn. It was a touching moment
as the room filled x% ith the voices of those men and women who had fought for our country, singing
their allegience to the USMC.
The ceremonial cake cutting is customary at Marine Corps Birthday celebrations and was carried
off with precision and reverence. The Senior Cake Escort presented Detachment Commandant
Hop\% ood the sword, passing it over his left forearm. The Commandant cut three pieces of cake. The
first piece wasypresented to the'Guest of Honor, the second piece to the oldest Marine present, CW03

Chlurlic Combs, who in turn presented it to the youngest Marine, S. Sgt. Raul Toledo, signifying the
Ssingf experience jiJ 1 iicowledge from the old to the young of the Corps. The third piece of
* cake is given to the oldest Marine again, further emphasizing the fact that they care for the young
Marines before looking to their own needs. It was noted that CW03 Combs was a Prisoner of War
during WWII for four years.'
With the ceremony complete, the guests enjoyed a wonderful meal prepared by Elaine's
Catering.
With Veterans Day upon us, this very special celebration was a reminder to us of the sacrifices
made by all the men and women who have served our.country with honor and without question.
God Bless Our Veterans & God Bless America. Semper Fi!

Log Cabin

Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, November 3rd at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Quilting went on as usual and
the green and white Log Cabin
will soon be finished. B.J. has
quilted a Dresden Plate and it
is beautiful. She quilted it by
the piece and that means twice
the quilting. This way of
quilting was done many years
ago when the cotton that was
used had to have stitching
close together or the cotton
would ball up. Today our
batten is much better and we
can quilt in wider spaces.
Our prayers are with the
family of Doris Loyauis. Doris

many to do Harangue and we

would make crosses and
butterflies and each of us
would get one. I put mine in a
frame and it hangs in the quilt

left us with many wonderful

LEGAL NOTICE

FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE


Final notice under Executive Order
11988, Floodplain Management, is
hereby given by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency's (FEMA) intent to
provide Public Assistance funding to the
Northwest Florida, Southwest Florida,
Suwannee River, St. John's River, and
South Florida Water Management
Districts for the repair and restoration of
water control facilities. Funds will be
provided in accordance with the Robert T.
Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency
Assistance Act, Public Law 93-288, as
amended.

Program: Public Assistance, FEMA
Disasters DR-1539-FL, DR-1545-FL, DR-
1551-FL, DR-1561-FL, DR-1595-FL, DR-
1602-FL, and any other as yet undeclared
Presidential disaster declaration that may
occur during the 2005 hurricane season.

Statement of Why Action is Located in
Floodplain: These projects involve the
repair and restoration of water control
facilities damaged during the 2004 and
2005 hurricane season and includes; but
is not limited to the dredging of sediment
from the canals; repair, restoration, and
stabilization of canal banks; and the
seeding of the restored area. The water
control facilities are functionally
dependent on their location, and therefore
located within mapped 100-year
floodplains.

Alternatives Considered: In all cases,
the alternatives to be considered have
been and will be: 1) Repair to pre-disaster
conditions. 2) Repair to pre-disaster
conditions with mitigation to minimize
impacts during future events. 3) No action
alternative.

Applicability of State/Local Floodplain
Standards: Funding will be conditional
upon the projects' conformity with all
applicable state and local floodplain,
standards, the project's obtaining any
necessary U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
permits, and the project complying with
any terms and. conditions placed by U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.

Affects to the Floodplain and
Mitigation: The proposed actions may
have short-term impacts to the floodplain
during construction. These impacts
would consist of short-term water quality
impacts. In some cases, mitigation
against damage during future events will
be provided by repairing or replacing
structures with materials that give
additional protection. Long term direct
and indirect impacts are expected to be
beneficial because the facilities help
manage stormwater and provide
additional floodplain storage.

LEGAL NOTICE

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER
Steinhatchee Water has committed a
monitoring violation of Florida
Drinking Water Rules
Our water system recently violated a
drinking water rule. 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.
For community water systems under the
direct influence of surface water, such as
ours, the inorganic contaminants Nitrate
and Nitrite are to be monitored quarterly.
The laboratory destroyed our samples for
the second quarter of 2005 during
analysis, therefore placing us in violation
of monitoring and reporting requirements.

What should I do?
Some people, especially infants, who
drink water-containing nitrate and nitrite,
could become seriously ill. Symptoms
include shortness of breath and blue baby
syndrome.
Any customers who are concerned about
their exposure to nitrate and, nitrite can
choose alternative sources of water for
ingestion.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had
been, you would have been notified
immediately.

What happened? What is being done?
Our nitrate and nitrite samples were
drawn and taken, to the laboratory for
analysis the last week of the second
quarter. During analysis the samples
were contaminated by samples from
another water system. The laboratory


notified us of the mishap immediately. It
was to late to take another set of samples
in the second quarter. Samples were
taken for the third quarter and the results
were well below the allowable limit.
In the future all quarterly samples will be
submitted to the laboratory earlier in the
quarter to allow us more recovery time in
the event of a mishap.
