at having a normal life. Days Kight waes from the

miracle. and that miracle
continues as he has steadily improved and shows no signs of
rejection
.Noah had been fighting a;.rare genetic disorder called
citrullinemia all his life. Persons ith the disorder are missing an
enzyme in their lh'er that e\tracts ammonia out of their systems.
From the first da\ he \%as born. Noah experienced seizures. Once
the problem v as pinpointed doctors began to treat the young Noah
through diet and medication that cost o% er $5,200.00 a month.
The Kight family\ battled Noah's condition daily and while
most patients with the disorder gradually\ get better, Noah's
condition worsened. His seizures; became uncontrollable and the
ammonia was slowly poisoning his .young body. A transplant
seemed to be his only hope for survival.
Noah's parents, Teddy & Gwen Kight and Grandparents Ed &
Gainell Ellison are pleased to report that the miracle Noah received
a,\ear ago continues to bless, their family. "Noah is doing great!"
stated Gainell. "He runs and jumps and rides his bike just like a
regular kid." added& Ed. "He is steadily improving, 90% better,"
Ed added.
Their trips to the doctors have been decreased to occasional
visits for blood work. Medications that were trying to help control
the disease have been replaced by anti-rejection medication which
he will take the rest of this life. However, the Kights see this new
medication as part of the blessing given to Noah when he received
his new liver.
"We can't thank folks enough for all they have done for us;
especially\ for their prayers" stated Ed. The Kight family knows
how important prayer is and asks that they keep Noah on their
prayer list.
So, during this busy holiday season, take a moment to say a
prayer for the Kight family and give thanks for all the blessings
you and yours have received over the year.

Former Dixie Resident

Receives Burns In Explosion
On November 28, 2005 Matt Edmonds, along with another co-
worker, Cedric Wade, were injured during a late night explosion
at the SAC cement plant outside of Branford, Florida.
Due to the stormy weather Matt could not be stat flighted oit,
so he and Cedric were rushed by ambulance to Shands Hospital in
Gainesville. Matt suffered third degree bums on both hands and
arms up to the elbows. He also has a third degree burn on his
back and shoulder area. His face consisted mostly of first degree
bums with the exception of his lips which received second and
third degree burns.
Matt's doctor, Dr. Mozingo, along with his surgery team
performed a skin grafting surgery Friday, December 2nd. They
were able to repair all the third degree bums to both Matt's hands
.and arms and the prognosis is ,he will be able to regain full
mobility after physical therapy. The burns on Matt's face will heal
on their own, however he will undergo another surgery this coming
Friday for the bums on his back.
This past Sunday they were able to remove the ventilator tube,
allowing him to be able to talk now. The tube was needed at first
due to smoke and heat inhalation during the explosion.
Matt is requesting that all his friends and family come and isit
with him now that he is able to communicate. He will remain in the
hospital for approximately two more weeks.
The cause of the explosion is still unknown at this time.
Regardless of what those reasons are...Matt received a HUGE.
miracle on the night of the accident. The wounds he suffers now.
are, nothing in comparison with the fact that he could no longer be
with us.
Matt's family would like to first and foremost give thanks to
God Almighty...He was with Matt and Cedric and with those who
helped with their rescue and now their recovery. Matt and his
family would like to thank all the fire and medical professionals at
the Shands Burn Unit. The care he is receiving there is top ,rate,
Also, thanks to Mr. Joe Anderson and Tom Messer fori their,
continued concern.
All the prayers that have been sent up by each of you who love
Matt are greatly appreciated. Through prayer, God is moving in. a
mighty way. Future prayers for Matt are desired by Matt and his
family. Once again, we thank all of you for your prayers and
concern.

Amnesty by any other name....
; Webster defines amnesty as, "the act, of an authority (as a
government) b. which pardon is granted to a large group of
individuals."
A pardon ino1lies something that can be forgiven, obviously
some sort of wrongdoing, with amnesty being the act of forgiving
the sins of a designated group, as opposed to merely an individual.
For example, a limited amnesty was granted to Confederate soldiers
alier the Civil War.
Amnesty has re-entered the American vocabulary in a big way
since President Bush announced his plan to grant "temporary
worker" status to people who had entered this country illegally or
overstayed their visas. This would be a 5 year permit to stick
around, during which the undocumented alien could apply for
permanent status or return temporarily to Mexico (let's face it,
that's where most of them are coming from) and then re-enter the
United States on the same program.
Mr. Bush, normally not one to mince words, insists that his
proposal is not amnesty, which brings to mind an interesting
definition of a duck: If it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck,
and quacks like a duck, in all probability it actually is (would you
.believe it?) a duck!
; Entering the United States without the proper paperwork.is
illegal. People %who enter the United States illegally are committing
a crime, according to our laws. People Who commit crimes in this.
countr are subject to punishment.
'The "punishment", for, entering the. United States illegally
usually amounts to nothing more than being dropped off south of
lhe'Rlio Grande if you're a Mexican, or' being issued an order to'
appear .in court if you are not; but generally, little if any effort is
made to round up no-shows, as they are absorbed,, virtuallyy
unnoticed, into the celebrated diversity of our general population.
;' Neither major political party seems interested in doing anything
:about this,, but the Republicans are in charge at the White House
and in Congress, so the onus falls most heavily upon them.
'" Why should either political party favor unfettered accommo-
dation of people who break the law by entering this country
illegally? Two reasons, the most obvious of which is the Hispanic
'vote..
One would logically expect that Hispanic people who 'have
*come to this country legally and established their citizenship in the
,prescribed -manner-and 'are. therefore entitled to vote-would
'resent con,'one, from their homeland or not. taking the Rio Grande
'shortcut to stateside residence. However. this still must be a factor.
*or there would be some significant opposition to illegal
:immigration to be found somewhere in Washington.
A related reason which is quite possibly more important could
,be summed up in the familiar phrase, "follow the money." A lot of
'.businesses in this country are saving money on salaries and benefits
'by hiring undocumented workers for unskilled and semi-skilled
jobs. In 1987, I had to prove that I was a U.S. 'citizen to get a job
,where my employer knew good and well that I was, but was
following regulations. Today, I think there might be less hassle
"involved in getting a job with the CIA.
Evidently, a lot of big businesses-many of which contribute
substantially to the political campaigns of both major parties-
? don't want their cheap labor source to dry up. Do the math.
Unfortunately, an open borders policy could eventually turn the
: United States into a third world country. And that's the direction in
,-which amnesty for illegals would be taking us.

FWC Takes On Illegal

Oyster Harvesters
3 Cross City Residents Charged
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
investigators recently arrested three people selling oysters they
harvested from the red tide-contaminated waters near the Shired
Island area in Dixie County.
FWC officers charged Robert Milton Forehand, 55, Cross
City, Anne Nightingale Forehand, 50, and Billy Ray Forehand,
54, both of Old Town, Nov. 23 on a variety of charges including
illegal harvest and sale of oysters from a closed area and failure to
obtain required licenses to harvest or sell saltwater products.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services designated all zones in the Shired Island area closed to
oyster, clam and mussel harvest since Oct. 29 because of red tide
contamination along the coast.
"The oysters harvested from a closed area presented a
significant threat to public health," said Capt. Martin Redmond,
FWC investigations supervisor for the North Central Region.
"We needed to stop the harvest and sale of these oysters."
FWC investigators and officers went undercover to the Shired
Island campground where the three Forehands lived. Officers
established a relationship with the trio and bought 118 oysters
and 19 live blue crabs from them. After documenting the
evidence, the officers returned the live products to 'the water.
Undercover officers also established that the defendants had
knowledge of commercial fishing laws and rules. One of the
defendants said he "was not worried about getting caught because
the FWC did not have time to mess with him."
Officers charged Robert Forehand with harvest of oysters from
a closed area; commercial harvest/sale of oysters with no
Saltwater Products License; commercial harvest from a vessel not
constructed to protect products from bilge/contaminants; shellfish
harvest vessel not equipped with sewage disposal receptacle; and
.driving a vehicle with a suspended driver's license.
Charges against Billy Forehand include harvest of oysters
from a closed area; commercial harvest/sale of oysters with no
Saltwater Products License; and commercial harvest/sale of blue
crabs with no Restricted Species Endorsement.
Officers charged Anne Forehand with commercial harvest/sale
of oysters with no Saltwater Products License and commercial
harvest/sale of blue crabs with no Restricted Species
Endorsement.
In addition, officers seized as evidence the suspects' 14-foot
Alumacraft johnboat with a Mercury 9.9 outboard motor, an
oyster cull rack and a set of oyster tongs.
Unlicensed harvest/sale of saltwater products can range from
misdemeanor to felony charges, depending on the violator's
history.
"FWC plain-clothes investigators teamed up with FWC
patrol officers from the Crystal River Field Office to address this
problem and make this case," Redmond said.
To report any natural resource violations, call the FWC's
toll-free Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. Callers can
remain anonymous and receive a reward if the information leads to
an arrest.'
According to the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute,
if a shellfish harvest ban is in effect because of red tide, it is not
safe to eat mollusks (clams and oysters) because toxins can
accumulate in the meat of these filter-feeding bivalves. It is OK to
eat fish, crabs and shrimp during red tide, because the toxin is not
absorbed in the edible tissues of these animals. Scallops are OK
to eat as long as only the muscle of the animal is consumed.
Seafood purchased in local restaurants and grocery stores is safe to
eat because all commercial seafood must be harvested from red
tide-free waters.
Cooking does not destroy'thie red tide toxin. Anyone who eats
red tide-contaminated shellfish can experience sy mptoms within a
few hours. Symptoms generally disappear within a few days and
include tingling and numbness of tongue, lips, throat; muscular
aches; gastrointestinal distress; and dizziness, depending on the
amount of toxin ingested and the overall health of the victim.
The Marine and Freshwater Toxins Hotline, (888) 232-8635,
is available for reporting harmful effects. Callers are connected to
the Florida Poison Information Center in Miami, which operates
24 hours a day. Health care professionals at the center record the
caller's information and assist with health and safety concerns.
The Florida Department of Health encourages people who have
experienced harmful effects associated with exposure to aquatic


toxins to call the hotline.

Crist Warns Against

Phony Email Solicitation
Claims to be from FBI, instead releases virus -
TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Charlie Crist today x1 earned
Floridians of a rapidly spreading electronic mail scam that tries to
deceive recipients into believing a message is from the Federal i
Bureau of
Investigation (FBI): Those receiving the email are told that the
FBI has monitored their internet use and determined that they are
guilty of accessing illegal websites.
The email instructs recipients to open an attachment and'
answer a series of questions. Instead of containing questions from
the federal law enforcement agency, the attachment actually?;
unleashes a computer virus. The email appears to be authentic, as
the originating email address is either mail@fbi.gov,
post@fbi.gov or admin@fbi.gov. Other originating addresses are
possible.
With the email coming from such an official-sounding.:
source, the recipient is enticed to open the attachment, which
contains a variant of the w32/sober virus. If the program n within
the attachment is executed, the virus a type of "Trojan horse"
that appears to be innocent but is not is launched and ma\
adversely affect the user's computer.
These emails did not come from the FBI, and the bureau
strongly encourages computer users not to open such attachments._,
If received, this email should be deleted without the user opening'
it. The FBI is
investigating the matter, and the Florida Attorney General's'
Office is monitoring the situation after being alerted to the
existence of the bogus email by the FBI. The Attorney General's
Office has already received its first complaint from a consumer"
harmed by the virus.
"While computers represent a positive advancement for
modern society, unfortunately there are those who have nothing
better to do than cause mayhem and destruction," said Crist. "We"
hope that word can spread quickly so this Trojan Horse can be
stopped at the starting gate."
For detailed information on the effects of running this
virus please log onto http://www.cert.org. Those who receive the
deceptive email may contact the Attorney General's Fraud'
Hotline at 1-866-966-7226 or contact the FBI directly through.
www.fbi.gov.
The text of the email is as follows:
"Dear Sir/Madam,
We have logged your IP-address on more than 30 illegal-'
Websites. Important: Please answer our questions! The list of
questions are attached.
Yours faithfully,
Steven Allison, Federal Bureau of Investigation-FBI-"

Identity Theft Scams

Target Veterans
Two identity theft scams currently making the rounds in
Florida are targeting veterans. One of these calls itself the "Patier4
Care Group," and makes the bogus claim that it is now dispensing
VA prescriptions.
Veterans are told that, in 'order to continue receiving theiig
medications from the VA, they must provide a credit card number
Give them your' credit card number, and all of a sudden you stai
getting billed for purchases you never authorized or received.
The VA has not changed their process of receiving and
dispensing prescription drugs. If you have any questions about V
prescriptions or services, call them. Do not give out your credit
.card numbers to anyone who calls you. '
The other scam is being worked mainly, in Mississippi
Alabama and the Florida panhandle, but it could be making its way
to our area, since VA disability claims are sometimes sent to othet
areas for rating purposes.
The scam involves calling VA beneficiaries and advising them
that their VA files have been destroyed as a result of hurricane
Katrina. The veteran is then asked to provide his or her Social
Security number and other personal information in order tq
reconstruct their files.
This is just another attempt to rip off the public througlr
identity theft. Do not give out your Social Security number, credit
card numbers and other personal information to people calling you ,
If the call was from a legitimate source, they would already have
this information.

IRS Warns Of E-Mail Scam
The Internal Revenue Service issued a consumer alert about an
Internet scam in which consumers receive an e-mail informing
them of a tax refund. The e-mail, which claims to be from the IRS,
directs the consumer to a link that requests personal information,
such as Social Security number and credit card information.
The bogus e-mail, which claims to come from
taxrefunds(cairs.gov, tells the recipient that he or she is eligible to
receive a tax refund for a given amount. If you receive an
unsolicited e-mail purporting to be from the IRS, take the
following steps: Do not open any attachments to the e-mail, in case
they contain malicious code that will infect your computer. Contact-
the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 to determine whether the IRS is trying
to contact you about a tax refund.

LifeSouth & The Gainesville Sports

Organizing Committee Remind

Everyone To

Get ready to run, Gainesville!
(Gainesville, Fla.) Gainesville, Florida, is a rare town where
on any day, at any time, in any part of town you're likely to see
runners and walkers. It's known as a running town and a Well
City USA and finally, on Sunday, February 19, 2006, Gainesville
will have its own marathon. Organizers are looking for
participants of all kinds walkers, runners, volunteers, sponsors
and spirited well-wishers.
The Five Points of Life Marathon and Half Marathon is
coordinated by the Gainesville Sports Organizing Committee and
LifeSouth Community Blood Centers and a host of community
volunteers who are lending personal and professional expertise to
launch a first-class event that will make our community proud.
With already more than 200 registrants from 13 states, the event
is well on track to reach a first-year goal of 500 participants.
The Five Points of Life is a national program organized by
Gainesville's blood center, LifeSouth, to raise awareness of the
five ways we can share life with others through donations of
blood, apheresis, cord blood, marrow, and organ & tissue. The
marathon joins the Five Points of Life bi-annual cross country
bike ride, both of which allow for a visible demonstration of the
health and vitality of people who are donors and recipients of
lifesaving donations.... .
For Gainesville's Mark MlcGriftf. the marathon takes the form
of seeing a dream come to life. McGriff was born and raised in
Gainesville. A gifted athlete and former UF Football player,
UMcGriff ran his first marathon in 1996 and has since completed
.10. When he heard that the blood center was considering
organizing a marathon as a fundraiser and awareness-raising
Seventh, McGriff contacted LifeSouth to offer the support and
services of GSOC, where he serves.on the board of directors.

I and w\as the inspiration behind the creation of the Five Points of
t Life and the bike ride. Mark McGriff is a regular blood and.
apheresis donor, is listed on the National Marrow Donor Program
' Registry. two of his three sons donated their cord blood at birth
and his grandfather donated his tissues when he passed away.
"Our family definitely has the five points covered and my
Dad has completed three of the five Five Points of Life rides and
participated in all of them," McGriff said. "I am not a cyclist but
Sas a runner I've always believed, we need a marathon in this
town."
The marathon' route takes runners and walkers along 13.1
(half) or 26.2 (whole) miles, traversing parts of the city and the
University of Florida. Course coordinators took great pains to
include some of Gainesville's best features including the Duck
Pond, 34th Street Wall, historic downtown Gainesville, and UF's
'Florida Field where the course takes runners around the perimeter
of the field. The event begins and ends on Hull Road, across from

the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center Gainesville
which serves as the host hotel.
Race Director Cate Boyett encourages community
involvement, "This is an event where everyone can have a role
regardless of age or fitness level. We need people to staff water
stations, cheer runners on and serve as event volunteers before
and after race day. Marathons are fun, challenging and rewarding
for competitors and for people who are just pleased to
participate."
Online registration and volunteer information is available at
www.fivepointsoflifemarathon.com. Interested sponsors are asked
to contact Cate Boyett at (352) 224-1601.

give young readers an insight-
ful glimpse into everyday
French life and culture.
Written by Rend Goscinny
with illustrations by Jean-
Jacques Semp6, whose car-
toons appear in The New

best-seller since it was first
released in 1959, elevating
this fictional "every boy" to

American audience.
The young hero is easy to

"FWC"
Continued from page 1

FWC expects the reduced bag limit to result in a 30-percent annual
reduction in Gulf red grouper recreational harvest.
Florida anglers may harvest two red grouper daily in Gulf state
waters (out to nine nautical miles from shore). In federal waters,
which extend beyond state waters, all recreational harvest of red
grouper is currently prohibited until Jan. 1 under a temporary
federal rule. When federal waters reopen to red grouper harvest in
January, a one-fish daily limit also will apply.
The recreational five-fish daily aggregate grouper bag limit and
the 20-inch total length minimum size limit for red grouper remain
unchanged in both state and federal waters.
For further information on grouper management in Florida, see
MyFWC. corn/marine/grouper/.
Also addressed were concerns over airboat noise. In an attempt
to help this growing problem the Florida. Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) approved enforcement
procedures and educational efforts concerning airboat sound
reduction.
The Commissioners' action clarified that flex pipe is not an
effective muffling device and that mufflers are required on
airboats. Commissioners also included a provision directing FWC
officers to promote compliance through a six-month educational
period.
Commissioners also voted to move forward with public
outreach efforts to resolve concerns about airboat sound levels.
Outreach efforts will include an airboat-sound reduction
competition next spring, in cooperation with the industry, to
develop innovative solutions for making airboats quieter.
To get to this point, FWC staff conducted six workshops to
gather input from airboaters, sound experts and residents to address
complaints about sound levels produced by airboat engines and
propellers. Workshops attracted 400 participants who
overwhelmingly agreed on the need for an airboater code of ethics
and the need for effective mufflers on airboat engines.


Finish each day and be
done with it. You have
done what you could.
Some blunders and ab-
surdities no doubt crept
in; forget them as soon as
you can. Tomorrow is a
new day; begin it well
and serenely and with
too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your
old nonsense.

Abundant Life & Living
By Lucille Stockton
Life's choices are complex
sometime., so the human family
has to stay focused on the
freedom that Jesus sacrificed
through his blood for them. That
we might have life more .
abundantly.

Lest we forget that God is
our source, regardless of the
world in chaos we have a promise.
We are his children and He loves
us, I say to all the human family that may have doubt and
dismayed embrace abundant life and the joy of living. Don't
leave Florida because of the storms. God is everywhere in the
world. And he is in charge all over the world. We are never
hidden from his presence. Joshua 1:9 (kjv) states I command
you be strong and courageous be not afraid God is with you
.everywhere you go...Take good care of your self. Don't wait for
your minister, father, or mother to bless you, bless yourself
when you go out, bless yourself when you come in, bless your
family, your home your city, county, street and your
community. Praise yourself, most of all believe in yourself. Do
all the good you can, whenever you can, wherever you can,
God Loves a cheerful giver. Live Life and stay happy.
Everyone is responsible for their happiness,

Dec. 4, 1955- Sept. 4, 2004
It's been a year since you were called away S
We miss you so much more and more each day
Those whom we love go out of sight

Those are cherished in the hearts '

Sincere and true in the heart and mind
Beautiful memories you left behind
If tears could build a stairway and
heartaches make a lane

We would like to thank everyone for all the loving concern
shown to us during the recent loss of our loved one. While we
don't know the words to express the depth of our gratitude, please
know the prayers, the cards, all the food, the flowers, the calls, the
hugs and the donations to help with expenses were greatly

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2005


Mark & Mary Norris

To Celebrate

40th Wedding Anniversary


Mark & Mary Norris
December 10, 2005 Congratulations!


Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"David and Goliath"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say Goliath said a
strange thing in verse 8. He admitted his own identity, then he called Israel
"servants to Saul" What a fulfillment of Samuel's prophecy! Had they
truly been servants of the Most High God, then Goliath would have been
afraid of them. But the devil is not afraid of man's machinery. Set up all
the Sunday Schools, Bible Schools, Hospitals, Women's Groups, Men's
Groups, Youth Groups and other groups that you want. You may have so
much harness that you can't find the horse.
I, the Day of the Lord, say But if that Holy Ghost anointing for true
-deliverance is not there, you won't scare the devil one bit. Read verses 4-7
"and you will see that Goliath was used to a lot of harness and machinery,
;in fact he had more than they all. The one who brings Goliath.'down will
;not be hampered with a lot of harness, but he will have the leadership of
the spirit, the faith of God, and the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus.
'I, the Day of the Lord, say "Servants to Saul". What an indictment
against the church world of today. Sold out their spiritual birthright for a
mess of ecclesiastical pottage, and denominational fleshpots. "Choose you
a man".. But the divided world of Christians cannot get together to form
that one Body of Christ that is so necessary for the deliverance of
mankind. Their carnal efforts to unite under the headship of "Saul" is only
folly. It will not work. Yes, God is bringing together His Body. Under the
headship of Jesus. %% ho is irul ihe one and only Head of the Church.
.I. the da. of the Lord, say God hjs a man to answer the devil's
challenge. And %\hen I speak of "God's Perfect Man", or "God's Man of
Fath and Power", I am not speaking of some tent evangelist or well-
kno%%n indLidual. But. I am speaking of that glorious Body of Christ,
made up of many humble members, with Jesus Christ as Head and
Captain. Isaiah saw them and said: "A strong and mighty one"; Joel said
"A great people and a strong"; Daniel said they "will be strong and do
exploits". Paul the Apostle spoke of them as when we all .ome "unto a
perfect Man"
I, the Da\ of the Lord, say "If he Kill me, we will be your servants".
Yes, if : ou % field to Satan and he overcomes you, then you are his servant,
to do his will But if you overcome him as Jesus did in the wilderness,
then he must obey your every command. That is what the whole world is
groaning for. For God's David company to come forth and put the devil's
Goliath under their feet. There can be no treaty in this war. It is either
victory or slavery. Continued next week.

Faith Baptist Church News


We thank God for all His
,blessings; the rain, the cool
crisp weather, the ones we
were able to take off our
prayer list, the talent He has
placed in our congregation, the
visitors we had today, the
Sunday School teachers and
attendance, and the wonderful
,messages that Bro. Jackie
delivered that God had laid on
his heart. God just continues to
bless Faith bountifully.
It's a busy month as
Christmas is almost upon us.
The 18th of this month, we will
have our Christmas Play for
our evening service. It is being
organized by Janet Osteen..
Janet is doing a great job and
we appreciate her so much.
Make plans now to attend and
-you will surely receive a
blessing.
Our special music today
was outstanding. In the
morning service, the choir sang
"I, Woke Up This Morning
Feeling Fine" and in the
evening service Tommy
i McQueen sang "I Can Still Go
Free". Both blessed our hearts.
We want our visitors to


know what a blessing they are
to us and we pray that we
made you feel welcome and
loved. If you're looking for a
church home, you won't find
one better than Faith, and if
you're just passing through, or
visiting with family for the
holidays, we invite you back
anytime. May God bless you in
this special season.
Remember to pray for the
sick in our community.
Especially pray for the lost in
this season when we celebrate
Christ's birthday, and just pray
for the less fortunate. God will
bless you for it.

it, you missed a good time. There were lots of vendors with lots of
food and drinks, there was a fly over with Jay Bolin in the
Anderson Columbia jet, and we had skydivers and fireworks.
There was a lot of good country music. Earl Thomas Conley
started off the singing and dancing, and then Bryan White and
Mark Chesnutt finished off the night. The artists mingled with the.
crowd and signed autographs. If you didn't make it this year or if
you did come, be sure and watch for next years line up and date for
the 2nd annual Jamboree. We hope to be bigger and better.
We would like to thank the following organizations for
providing the food and beverages: Old Town Elementary School,
DCHS Band, DCHS Teen Court, T&C Concession, Neeley
Shrimp, Old Town Tool Rental and the Dixie Horsemen
Association.

Town Tool Rental, Dixie County Chamber of Commerce, The Big
98.1, Dixie County Advocate, Dixie County Sheriff Department,
Cross City Police Department, Dixie EMS, Cross City
Correctional, C.O.P. and the Cross City Airport Staff. ,
The following people helped make the event, possible: Johnny
and Mary Lord, Matt Wallace, Leslie Brannin, Kenny and Mandy
Stemple, Frank and Becky Bussard, Arthur and Cindy Bellot, Roy
Griffin, Scott Gantt, Counr', Cominniisioner John Driggers, Jay

New Prospect Baptist News
Our choir sounded really good singing praises to our Lord
Sunday, after which we were blessed with a Christmas song done
exceptionally well by our children's group. What a joy it is to see
their shining little faces as they sing with feeling about the birth of
our Savior! With a full house and the tone now set, Bro. Billy
brought a very inspiring message from Romans 10:13. It was
indeed good to be in the house of the Lord.
Next Sunday, Dec. 11th, we will have our Christmas dinner at
the church annex immediately after morning services, to be
followed that evening at 7:00 P. M. by our children's Christmas
program. Oni Monday, Dec. 12th, the Ladies' Ministry will have
their Christmas Party at Aimee St. Laurent's home, beginning at
6:30 P.M.
Please be much in prayer this week for those on the prayer lists,
those saddened by the loss of loved ones, our people in the
military, and our nation's leaders. We invite you to come and visit
with us at New Prospect anytime; w welcome all. Hope you're
having a good week, and may God bless and keep you safe.

This side of 60... By Marie Snider
SHOULD YOUR STUFF BE HAPPIER THAN YOU ARE?
We've lived in the same house for 35 years. That means 35
Christmas trees, 35 years of vibrant springs, 35 years of sitting by
the fire, 35 years looking out the windows at the birds in our
backyard and 35 years of fun.
But it also means 35 years of clutter!
Fortunately, my husband designed our easy-to-live-in house
and he thought ahead about the clutter that would accumulate. He
designed cupboards, closets, drawers and shelves galore.
Unfortunately, all of them are now full. Every shelf and every
closet is organized. But, still, they're full.
And that isn't all. We own a beautiful red barn four blocks
away where we store our overflow a stationary bike that hasn't
been used for years, a desk that was too large to take downstairs
and crutches our daughter used when she broke her leg.
When we built our house in 1970, according to the National
Association of Home Builders, the average new house was 1,500
square feet. Compare that to 963 square feet in 1950 and today's
average of 2,400.
At the same time that houses were growing, family size was
shrinking. With all that extra floor space, we should have no
trouble storing our accumulation of "stuff."
Yet, the self-storage industry is thriving. The industry brings
in 17 billion dollars a year, exceeding the annual revenues of
Hollywood. And one in 11 American households rents storage
units for their overflow.
We store mementos we hate to get rid of, clothes that may
come back in style, books we may want to read someday. We
store "stuff."
"Your stuff will be happy here," promises one advertiser. Yes,
your stuff will be happy, but what about you?
Our stuff weighs us down and takes our time. We have to dust
it, sort it, organize it, move it around and store it. Then, why is it
so hard to give up our things, even when we long for simplicity?
Janet Luhrs, author of "The Simple Living Guide," offers
insight.
When Luhrs first got involved with voluntary simplicity, she
was so enamored that she signed up for a class on how to build
log houses. Her dream was that her family would live simply in a
log cabin in the woods.
She got that dream from the Henry David Thoreau quote, "I
went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front
only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it
had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not
lived."
That dream never came true, but much later she caught on that
the key word was not "woods" but "deliberately." Says Luhrs,
"That one word, in my opinion, is the hallmark of a simple life."
She stresses that living simply is not about being frugal or
living on a modest income. Rather, living simply is being fully
aware of what you're doing and why you're doing it. She says,
"Simple living is about designing our lives to coincide with our
ideals."
And nobody has a goal of having more clutter. So why not
begin decluttering your storage spaces today. Why should your
stuff be happier than you are?

FWC Asks Boaters To Stay Alert;

Operation Slow Speed To Help
Downed channel markers, blown away speed zone signs, and
migrating manatees are some of the hazards boaters may face in
the coming winter boating season. While removing underwater
navigational hazards and replacing signs destroyed by past
hurricanes may take months to correct, the speed zones that those
signs mark will still be in effect.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
officers, assisted by more than 30 local police marine units from
around the state, will be out in force Dec. 3-4 for Operation Slow
Speed to make sure winter boaters know the rules. Just because a
speed zone sign is down, doesn't mean boaters can ignore the
rules.
Deaths for Florida boaters.are nearing record highs. With one
month left in the year, F\VC official; are hoping this, lawv
enforcement and educational effort will keep boating safety in the
minds of all boaters.
Through Nov. 12 of this year, 72 boaters have died on our
waterways. In 2003, Florida led the nation in boating deaths with
64, and last year we had 68. Most of them were preventable.
The FWC has keyed on three core boating safety messages this
year: stay alert, wear your life jacket and don't drink and operate a
boat. The agency says keeping these messages in mind
dramatically decreases your chances of getting into an accident and
increases your chances of survival if you do.
Media ride-alongs are available this weekend on a first-come,
first-served reservation basis. Contact: Karen Parker (386) 758-
0525.
Gov. Jeb Bush again proclaimed November as Manatee
Awareness Month. Through October of this year, 341 manatees
have died statewide, 63 by watercraft. Despite increased manatee
activity and a shortage of properly marked speed zones, the FWC
hopes to head off the threat of significantly increased manatee
mortality this winter through frequent patrols and by calling public
attention to the issue.
As manatees move toward warm water winter refuges, boaters
scan help manatees have a safe migration by: .
-Staying in marked channels..
-Wearing polarized sunglasses to improve vision.
-Learn and abiding by posted or mapped boat speed zones
For more information about manatees, visit
MyFWC.coimmanatee.

Florida Airboat
Association (FAA)
applauds Florida
Fish & Wildlife
Conservation
Commission's
(FWC) Ruling
After years of meetings,
hearings, volunteer efforts,
testing & research, the FWC
has reinterpreted the "muffling
device" rule for airboats to
include automotive style
mufflers rather than allowing
only "flex pipe" to qualify as
.an ample exhaust muffling
device.
"The member organizations
of the Florida Airboat
Association voted over 3 years
ago to implement change to the
state rule to require a sound
suppression device such as an
"automotive style" muffler to
be added to an airboat's
exhaust" stated Captain Phil
Walters, President of the FAA.
We, as responsible
sportsmen-conservationists
wish to continue to be
proactive in finding and
offering solutions facing the
sportsmen of Florida when our
historical and cultural outdoor
activities collide with Florida's
rapid population growth and
development of our once
remote recreational areas,"
added Walters.
Most sportsmen believe this
effort; along with courteous
vessel operation as suggested
by the "Airboaters' Code of
Ethics" will greatly reduce the
amount of sound produced by
airboat use upon our
waterways and wetlands.
We applaud the FWC on
this rule change and look
forward to our continuing
partnership with FWC in
finding solutions to protecting
our traditional and unique
Florida outdoor recreational
activities.
The Florida Airboat
Association is an umbrella
statewide i sportsmen
organization of airboat related
businesses, organizations and
clubs. We. actively promote
safe boating while protecting
our natural resources. The
FAA members have a long
tradition as leaders in
conservation, humanitarian aid
and protection of Florida's
native habitats by both word
and action of it's members.
The members of the Florida
Airboat Association received
United States Congressional
recognition for their resolve in
volunteer rescue efforts of
hurricane Katrina victims.

FWC Approves

Blue Crab

Management

Rules

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) today
approved blue crab rule
amendments requested. by
commercial fishermen
regarding the blue crab effort
management program. The
FWC also approved creating
an incidental take endorsement
for blue crab.Last April, the
FWC approved a rule designed
to control growth and


overcapitalization of the
commercial blue crab fishery
by managing the number of
fishermen and traps.

The rule, recommended by
FWC's Blue Crab Advisory
Board, established a blue crab
limited entry endorsement
program that limits the total
number of commercial blue
crab fishermen and allows each
qualified fisherman to use up to
an equal number of traps.This
program includes certain
qualifying criteria (based upon
reported blue crab landings
over a specified period) for
fishermen to obtain an
endorsement which allows
them to commercially harvest
blue crabs.The program also
requires all blue crab traps to
be tagged and allows the
transfer of endorsements to
other persons under specified
conditions.

Fees to support this
program, which begins in the
2006-2007 license year, must
be approved by the 2006
Florida Legislature.The rules
approved today by the FWC
allow qualified fishermen
affected by the 1995 net
limitation amendment, and
stone crab and shrimp
fishermen who harvest blue
crabs as bycatch in their fishing
gear, to obtain a non-
transferable blue crab limited
entry endorsement. This lets
displaced net fishermen use up
to 100 traps to harvest hard
shell blue crabs, and gives
shrimpers and stone crabbers a
daily bycatch allowance of 200
pounds of blue crabs.An
incidental take endorsement to
allow harvest of a limited
amount of blue crabs from
shrimp and stone crab fishing
gear also was approved by the
Commission, and the 2006
Legislature must approve a
proposed $25 fee for this
endorsement.
The new rules also allow
blue crab harvesters to obtain
permission from the FWC
Division of Law Enforcement
to let another person transport,
deploy or retrieve his/her traps
on a short-term basis under
certain conditions for reasons of
hardship. These rules will
take effect next month.

Buddy Martin's

Weekly Sports Commentary
As it should be: USC vs. Texas
OK, so now it's settled.
Reggie Bush wins the Heisman Trophy.
Southern Cal plays Texas in the Rose Bowl .. *
for the national championship.
And not even the BCS computers, Harris Poll : r
or Coaches Poll could screw this one up. .
All season long, the Trojans and the
Longhorns have been on this collision course
and now these two unbeatens are going to collide
in a No. 1 vs. No. 2 match-up.
We could say that the system worked, because
nobody can cry "foul" for being left out not Penn State,
nobody.
No arguments here.
As a Heisman voter, I held out until Saturday because I
really thought Vince Young was the best player when the
season started and he did very little to lose that distinction.
Young was yanked five minutes into the third period while
Texas was in the process of romping over Colorado, 70-3.
But I have to give it up for the player his USC
teammates call ".The President." Bush is such a remarkable
football player that he can take over a game like Magic
Johnson did in the NBA.
It's not just Bush's speed or elusive running style that
drives opposing tacklers crazy. He's also powerful and
tough to bring down. I'd almost swear I saw him leap
through the air in the first quarter, as if he were flying.
So USC could also win back-to-back Heismans.
Not enough has been said in praise of Mack Brown and
Pete Carroll, both of whom could easily be strong
candidates for coach of the year. Brown finally achieved a
Big 12 title after being castigated for "not winning the big
one." Carroll gets little or no credit for having back-to-back
unbeaten seasons and potentially three NCAA
championships in a row. (Will they. rename it a "Three-
Pete" in his honor?).
The Rose Bowl game will be a big challenge for the
'Trojans, however, because Texas has the talent on offense,
defense and special teams to defeat them.
Happily, the right teams will be playing for the
championship without a playoff. And we didn't need a bank
of computers, a bunch of coaches and writers or a Harris
Poll to get that right for us.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Don't look now, but the Sunshine State's "Big Three"
college football powers -- Florida, Florida State and Miami
-- have now been joined by South Florida and Central
Florida as the "Big Five."
2. Some. say ACC has caught the SEC, but the, latter,
leads the former, 3-2, this -season with the next head-to-,
head match-up coming in the Dec. 30 Chick-Fila-A-P6ach
Bowl (possibly Georgia vs. Florida S/ate or Boston
College).
3. If Michael Irvin skates on the crack pipe charge,
perhaps the next murder suspect who's found with the
weapon in car can use the same defense: "That 9 millimeter
pistol with my fingerprints on it doesn't belong to me."

Tough choice: Top
coach of the year
There are so many good candidates for college Coach of
the Year that I don't know which one to pick:
1. Joe Paterno of Penn State; 2. Pete Carroll of USC; 3.
Charlie Weis of Notre Dame; 4. Steve Spurrier of South
Carolina; 5. Les Miles of LSU; 6. Mack Brown of Texas;
and 7. Tommy Tuberville of Auburn.
It just depends on whether you go for sentimentality,
appreciation for a job well done the first year on the job,
the consistency of a back-to-back undefeated season or the
surprise of a guy winning with all new material.
I gotta go for Joe Grand-Pa.
Danny Crane, here
My favorite TV show this year is "Bostoni
Legal," featuring William Shatner, James Spader and
Candace Bergen. I predict Captain Kirk will pate in
comparison to the role of his life: A malfun'ctional,
politically incorrect Denny Crane, the aging attorney'who
claims he's got Mad Cow's disease. What Shatner did have
recently was a bad case of kidney stones, which prompted
him to post the following comment on his Web'site: "Word
got out that I had a back pain ... 'back pain' doesri't
encompass how painful it was for a while. It was a.kidney
stone but like my favorite quarterback, Peyton Manning,.I
passed it for a touchdown...and the stone indeed touched
down. All is well."
Today's Proverb
Those 'who race through life finish first.
And good morning to.
Mr. Bush, your approval ratings are at an all-tine'high"
(Reggie, not George).

Who is this Guy?
Just exactly who was this guy? That's the question the top
engineers at NASA were asking themselves. And not just that
question.. Others like, where did he come from? How'd he get this
kind of information? And the big one: How did he figure this out
before us?
The person who was causing all this commotion was Ed, a PhD
at MIT. Now, that's not all that unusual, is it? Oh, it's quite an
honor to get a PhD at MIT, After all, it is just about the top
scientific and engineering university in the world, but the truth is
that the place is loaded with PhDs. And Ed was one of them. Of
course, what the folks at the cape really wanted to know is how did
this bearded, tweed coat-wearing bookworm come .up with this
stuff?
Every PhD candidate has to come up with a graduate thesis,
and Ed's was called "Guidance for Manned Orbital Rendezvous."
For Ed, the whole thing started a short time earlier when he heard
President Kennedy make the announcement that America would go
to the moon within the decade. That really got his burners fired
up. The whole possibility of landing on the moon intrigued him.
So he started studying, and eventually wrote his PhD thesis on the
subject.
The thing that really caught NASA engineers' attention was
, that it was technically precise. They also realized that he had just
* come up with the best way to approach a landing on the moon.
That would be to send up two separate spacecraft:, one that would
orbit the moon, while the other would go to the moon and then
return to the orbiting spacecraft. The NASA engineers hadn't
really considered that concept as yet.
But just who was this guy? When they did a little research on
the good Dr. Ed, they found him to be a bit more than some docile
book worm. Ed had spent some time as a combat pilot in Korea,
flying an amazing 66 combat missions and shooting down two
enemy aircraft. That made it even more weird. Combat pilots are
not necessarily known for their scientific achievements. This guy
was breaking all the rules.
After Korea he enrolled at the prestigious Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, home of many of our country's best
engineers. Ed loved being among the best and the brightest, and he
began pursuing his PhD. Because President Kennedy had
launched a program to put a man on the moon, Ed started thinking
about how that might actually be accomplished.
NASA decided that anyone that bright, talented and.
knowledgeable about moon landings probably ought to be part of
one. After all, if you are going to help design it, you might as well
fly it. And he did! It's a Little Known Fact that Doctor Astronaut
Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin helped design and then flew Apollo 11 ...
and became the second human ever to step on the moon.

"Scrubs" finally returns to NBC January 3rd, with two new

Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston pulled over outside of

Stop loaning out your Chap-Stick. Viral infections, including
the common cold, are transferable even through "medicated"
brands, says Gurjit Kaur, D.O., a staff physician in internal
medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. Viruses can attach themselves to
any surface, so sharing lip balm is no different from kissing in
terms of your chance of infection. Oh, and wiping off the stick isn't
good enough. If you're in dire need, slice off the top of the stick
before using it. (Men's Health)
Romantic love lasts a little more than a year. After that, all
those fun chemicals that bathe our brain and gives us the love rush
dissipate. Kaput. Gone. That's the word from researchers at the
University of Pavia in Italy, who found the brain chemical that is
likely responsible for the first flush of love. When levels of these
proteins -- called neurotrophins -- are high, they provide a feeling
of euphoria and dependence that we typically feel at the beginning
of a relationship. But darn it all. Those good feelings don't last as
the proteins recede over time.
Keep your cool when tensions rise with this trick from Paul
McKenna, Ph.D., and Hugh Willbourn, Ph.D. Think of a time
when you felt totally relaxed and in control, then squeeze your
thumb and middle finger together for several seconds. After doing
this a few times, you'll associate the squeeze with calmness. The
next time you want to explode, pinch your fingers together and
imagine Nourselfhandling the situation calmly. (Woman's Day)

Receive FACC Awards
LAKE CITY, Fla.-At the annual Florida Association of
Community Colleges (FACC) convention held in Tampa, Florida
on November 16-18, Dr. Charles "Chuck" W. Hall, president of
.- SLake City Community College, was presented with the
|. President's Award for professional excellence at the
-' Administration Commission Awards Breakfast.
Each year this award recognizes the community college

Dr. Charles Hall an advocate of the importance of the community college in

duplication of his professional standards by other institutions.
Frances Ash, Lake City Community College FACC president, stated, "Dr. Hall was nominated
for his dedication to education, to the community, and for his outstanding service." Ash said that his

SVP Announces
Auditions
Suwannee Valley Players
announces auditions for its
upcoming production of "The
Nerd," a comedy/farce in 2 acts
by Larry Shue. Auditions
will be held at the Chief
Theatre, 25 E. Park Avenue, in
Chiefland on Thursday,
December 8th' and Saturday,
December 10, at 10 a.m.
Please bring your calendar
schedule to mark down dates of
availability.
Needed: 4 men, 2
women, and 1 small but
mature child. WE
ESPECIALLY NEED one of
the women to appear to be in
her early 30s. No
preparation necessary. Cold
readings from the script.
Rehearsals will later be

THE STORY: Now an
aspiring young architect in
suburbia, Willum Cubbert has
often told his friends about the
debt he owes to Rick
Steadman, a fellow ex-GI
whom he has never met but
who saved his life in Vietnam.
He has written to Rick to say
that, as long as he is alive,
"You will have somebody on
Earth who will do anything for
you" -- so Willum is
delighted when Rick shows up
unexpectedly at his home on
the night of his 34th birthday
party. But, his delight soon
fades as it becomes apparent
that Rick is a, hopeless "nerd"
- a bumbling oaf with no
social sense, little intelligence,
and less tact. Rick's
continued presence among
Willum and his friends leads
to one uproarious incident after
another, until the normally
placid Willum finds himself
contemplating violence a dire
development which, happily,
is staved off by the surprising
"twist" ending of the play.

before the Board regarding property
near his home in Cross City. He
stated that it has been set up as a
hunting camp site and they have three
travel trailers and dog pens set up. It
is zoned Residential Single Family
Home and feel that they are not in
compliance.
Mr. Messina read 'sections of
Ordinance 96-02 pertaining to mobile
homes and what is meant by "a
building". He stated that he has gone
through the LDR's and feels that this
is.not eligible for this area.
Billy Keen stated that you.can
issue a temporary permit for any part
of the county.
Mr. Messina stated that his
concern is that this decreases the
value of his property and it is an
eyesore. I want to know what you
can do about it. Mike Cassidy, City
Manager, has been supportive that
this is not desirable for this area.
Commissioner Hays discussed
Future Land Use and inquired just
exactly how the property is zoned.
Billy said that it is zoned RSF
(MH I) which means that they can be
permitted up to two temporary RV's.
Commissioner Lamb inquired if
they could be required to put up a
privacy fence.
Commissioner Hays stated that if
they are not in compliance with the
LDR's we need to stop it.
Mr. Keen confirmed to the Board
that he was comfortable with the fact
that he issued the permit within the
LDR's.
Attorney Lander stated that the
RV power pole is what the permit
was issued for and perhaps Billy
could get them to put up some type of
buffer; like a fence.
Billy Keen stated that they are
only supposed to have two travel
trailers. They can apply for a
temporary use exception for up to
five years and the third trailer would
have to be a blood relative. After the
five years they would have to reapply.
Commissioner Valentine
instructed Billy Keen to get the
permitting right and ask them to put
up a privacy fence on all adjacent
property owner sides.
Bills Keen stated that he didn't
think this' would be a' problem'.
The Board inquired if Mr.
Messina would be satisfied if this was
accomplished.
Mr. Messina stated he is not
trying to cause problems, but is
concerned that restrictions are not
being adhered to for this area. He
said if this is done it will be fine for
now and thanked the Board for their
time.
JACK SPIVEY, BUILDING
OFFICIAL
Mr. Jack Spie,' came before the
Board and stated that Arthur Bellot
asked him to give a report ona the
Growth Management Implementation
Workshop they attended today.
Florida is changing the way they are
doing business. We received a lot of
information and a lot wasn't very
pleasant.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that he has set through two meetings
and it wasn't fun.
Arthur Bellot informed the Board
that we have compliance deadlines to
meet.
Billy Keen referred to the
Interlocal Agreement with the School
System...
Mr. Bellot discussed the new law
that instructs that the county will have
to redo this agreement. We will need
to. get a consultant. Where this is
going, after a certain point, if the
county doesn't have it in place, is that
the LDR's will not be able to be
amended.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
the impact fees must comply with the
Growth Management Plan and Mr.
Darabi's plan for impact fees will not
work.
Mr. Jack stated that it is mind
boggling.
Commissioner Lamb informed
the Board that he is aware of a firm
out of Tallahassee that specializes in-
impact fees.. We need to get someone
that will stand up for us if we are ever
challenged.
Mr. Jack presented a letter
addressed to Lisa Grady of Dyer,
Riddle, Mills and Precourt, Inc. from
Frank Darabi of Darabi and
SAssociates, Inc. regarding Suwannee
Sunset Condominiums and Suwannee
Water and Sewer District. He stated
that it is his understanding that a


developer must supply proof of
utilities before we issue them permits.
Joey Lander stated that it is not
tied to issuing building permits.
Billy Keen stated that it is the
Certificate of Occupancy (CO) that
can be withheld.
Commissioner Lamb read exerts
from SB 360 and Joey Lander
discussed it further. He stated that
you can not hold up a building permit
because of this.
Commissioner Lamb said we
must meet the requirements.
Mr. Jack asked, "Do I or do I not
issue the permits "
Joey Lander said, "The point is
to look at your regional water supply.
A developer understands that the need
for the water capacity must be met


before the CO is issued."
A developer in the public
commented to the Board, "If I waited
on water in Jena, I wouldn't do
anything and if I have to, I will do my
own water system."
Commissioner Lamb stated that
pursuant to Senate Bills we will be
required to in compliance with
LDR's. This information needs to be
in the building permit packet before
the CO is issued.
Mr. Jack Spivey stated he has
resigned as Building Official for
Horseshoe Beach and would like to
pick up another four hours a week
with the county.
The Board approved this request
if the budget will allow it.
Mr. Jack discussed the
application received for building
inspector. Only one was received and
a letter will be sent informing him
that he does not meet the
qualifications; must be licensed in
one area of inspection and he is not.
He informed the Board that nine
applications were received for the
office position and he recommended
Lindsey Rollison. She scored the
highest on the interview.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Driggers
and carried to approve the
recommendation to hire Lindsey
Rollison for the Building and Zoning
Department.

ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR
Arthur Bellot came before the
Board and presented a letter from
Sonya Bosanko of the Early Learning
Coalition of the Nature Coast.. The
letter states "... The ELCNC was
established in 1999 through the
School Readiness Act and local
coalitions are responsible for
implementing early learning
programs, including the school
readiness and voluntary
prekindergarten education programs.
The Coalitions that were representing
Citrus, Dixie, ,Gilchrist, Levy and
Sumter Counties recently joined
together establishing the ELCNC.
The purpose of this merger is to meet
new legislation that requires local
coalitions to server no fewer than
2,000 children and to pool our
resources to improve the education
programs offered to our youngest
citizens ..... Florida law specifies
the membership of early learning
coalitions, which requires the
appointmentI of private-sector
members from, the Economic
Development Councils and' the
Chamber of Commerce... Currently,
the Coalition, is. seeking two (2)
private-sector members to represent
Dixie County. We respectfully
request you to submit names and
contact information ...."
Mr. Bellot stated that he can
think of three people from the
business community that he would
like to recommend; Cindy Anderson,
Harriet Wall and Virginia Sanchez.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
Sherry Ragsdale would be a good one
to recommend. Arthur agreed that
she also would be an eligible person.
The Boaredapproved for Arthur
to contact them.
Mr. Bellot informed the Board
that a letter was received by Cindy
Dey, Finance Officer, from Allison
Thompson of Three Rivers Legal
Services, Inc. Ms. Thompson is
requesting funds associated with 2004
Florida Legislature which created a
new funding source for civil legal
assistance. She says, ."We are
thankful that this county (Dixie) has
taken advantage of the statutory
authorization found in section
939.185, F.S. (2005), by passing an
appropriate County Ordinance
(Ordinance No. 04-03).
Mr. Bellot noted that Dixie
County Ordinance 04-03 states,


"Twenty-five percent (25%) shall be
remitted to assist in providing legal
aid programs in Dixie County
consistent with Section 29.008(3),
Florida Statutes".

timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
FACILITY: Oak Grove Dairy
PA File No.: FLA161977-002-IW4A

within fourteen days of receipt of
notice. The procedures for petitioning
for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's
proposed permitting decision may
petition for an administrative
proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be
filed (received by the clerk) \b in \bO the
Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida
Administrative Code, a person may
request enlargement of the time for
filing a petition for an administrative
hearing. The request must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel before the end of the
time period for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons other
than those entitled to written notice
under Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, must be filed within fourteen
days .of publication of the notice or
within fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of
agency action may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of such notice,-
regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing.
The failure of any person to file a
petition or request for enlargement of
time within fourteen days of receipt of
notice shall constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing)
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
'intervention (in a proceeding initiated
by another party) will be only at the
discretion of the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in compliance with
Rule 28- 106.205, Florida
Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's action
is based must contain the following
information:

(a) The name, address, and telephone
number of each petitioner; the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any; the
Department permit identification
number and the county in which the
subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each
petitioner .received notice of the
Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's
substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of

petition must so indicate;
( e) A statement of facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of
FACILITY: Oak Grove Dairy
PA File No.: FLA161977-002-IW4A

the Department action;.
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the petitioner to
relief; and
(g) A statement oftlle relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the
-ction that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final
action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final
decision of the Department have the
right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.

In addition to requesting an
administrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The
election may be accomplished by filing
with the Department a mediation
agreement with all parties to the
proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who has
filed a timely and sufficient petition for a
hearing). The agreement must contain
all the information required by Rule 28-
106.404, Florida Administrative Code.
The agreement must be received by
the clerk in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
within ten days after the deadline for
filing a petition, as set forth above.
Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a hearing if mediation


does not result in a settlement

As provided in Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, the timely agreement of all
parties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
for holding an administrative hearing
and issuing a .final order. Unless
otherwise agreed by the parties, the
mediation must be concluded within
sixty days of the execution of the
agreement. If mediation results in
settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter a
final order incorporating the agreement
of the parties. Persons seeking to
protect their substantial interests that
would be affected by such a modified
final decision must file their petitions
within fourteen. days of receipt of this


notice, or they shall be deemed to have
waived their right to a proceeding
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. If mediation
terminates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall notify all
parties in writing that the administrative
hearing processes under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
remain available for disposition of the
dispute, and the notice will specify the
deadlines that then will apply for
challenging the agency action and
electing remedies under those two
statutes.

display that the Riels' put out each year: somethiuiig neighborss look firwIard to. The bottom

THANK YOU
To all who have been
praying fotbr me -THANK
Y C) j
Last Autumn I had a cyst
surgically removed. My
:-. ..lamiily and I %\ere -.urprised to
learn that it was cancerous
"'This past June, I .\.js diagnosed
,as hai.ne cancer of the lar, In\
AAlter Iw'. inl a second gi v.% th
re,'IO'.ed. I urnderient eight
weeks of i.,diatlon treatments
For several v.eeks, I could not
talk above a % hisper


tlygllng n Lancer is 1not
something thjt I could hale
done by min,. elf. MN bride, Sue,
was beside me every step of
the way. My recovery "as
grounded upon the support and
prayers of my entire family of
several churches, of a couple of
Sunday School Classes, and of
many people
There is not ceroLugh room
in this nev, paper for me to list
all of the organizations and
people w ho ha e been pra. ing
for me. Each time Sue and I
prayed we felt the .olu'me,
v.armth and loe of those
prayers, and we knew that


, many of you were with us. During my treatments, I quickly came to know that I WAS NOT
ALONE. .
This past week, the doctor pronounced me CANCER FREE.
Your prayers have resulted in me being a cancer survivor. I am not yet sure why I was chosen
i for this dubious honor; I will just have to trust the Lord, wait, and find out. In the meantime...
Thank you for your prayers and support,
Fred Koberlein


Dixie & Levy Residents Win Blue Ribbons
Treasured Recipes Captured In Family Cookbook
By Terri Langford .
The holidays are truly a -.- .. ..
wonderful time of year. It is
one of the few times we go all
out...decorating, exchanging -
gifts, and gathering together to
enjoy each other and of course,
great food. Many of the
special dishes served are
handed down from generation
to generation or shared by our
closest friends. In keeping with
the spirit of the season Wal-
Mart has just released their
annual Family Cookbook with
several of the recipes from two .
ladies at the Chiefland Wal- .W jus ld
Mart store.
Our Dixie resident, Linda ,
E. Dumas of Old Town, is one
of the entries who's recipe
won in the nationwide
contest; and with Wal-Mart h
having over one million
associates, this was quite the
honor! This is Linda's third
year in which she has brought
home the coveted "Blue
Ribbon" and had her recipe
published. Her first year she
won with' an ice cream dessert Linda Dumas- Blue Ribbon Winner
and last year with her mother's
coleslaw recipe and this year with her friends Country Apple Cranberry Pie.
"I have to give the credit to my friend Kate," stated Linda. In thinking what would be a good
recipe to enter in the contest Linda remembered her friend Kate's apple-cranberry pie. "My husband
has sat in front of Kate's fireplace in Maine on many occasions, devouring several slices of her
delicious pie," she added. "It has become a big favorite with my kids and grandchildren as well,"
she noted.
Linda and husband, Eugene, moved from Vermont six years ago. He is a retired school teacher
and Linda is a Craft & Fabric's Associate at the Chiefland Wal-Mart. "We just love Florida," Linda
stated. However, she does miss her northern home at times, especially the snow this time of year, but
sharing the flavors of the north with friends helps keep those memories of home alive.
Linda says that besides entering the cookbook contest, several of the employees at the Chiefland
store have started a "cookie swap". "I love to cook, always have," Linda said. "I love to
experiment too, and my husband is really good about being my guinea pig." In fact, Linda has
already started working on a recipe for next year's contest...however she wouldn't tell me any more
than that. From her past successes, she should feel pretty confident..
We would also like to recognize Linda's co-worker, Carmen Barber Rogers, who also brought
home a Blue Ribbon and has her "Marty's Christmas Eve Cake" published in the 2005 Wal-Mart
Family Cookbook.
You can find the book next to the produce and meat sections. From the copy we received here at
the Advocate, it is well worth the $4.96 price. The easy-to-use, 96-page book is in full color and
spiral bound. It includes everything from appetizers and soups to main dishes, kid favorites and
those wonderfully sinful desserts!
Congratulations to you both!!
