Parks Over

Holidays
By Terri Langfind
Purvis, Goronto and Hinton
Landing Parks were all
vandalized over the holidays
and Commissioners stated
"enough is enough" and are
looking for ways to secure our
county parks and make sure


those who wish to break the law, pay.
Commissioner Alton Land reported at the last County Commission meeting that the Purvis
Landing Park restrooms and been destroyed when firecrackers were lit down into the toilets,
damaging the pipes. Estimates to replace the pipes and fixtures are between $600.00-700.00. At
Goronto Springs, Commissioner Lamb stated he had to go and turn off the water when a sink was
torn from the wall, allowing water to flow freely. It was also closed and it will cost nearly $400.00
to replace the damage there. Hinton Landing has been a target for years with the latest prank to put
picnic tables in the boat ramp or river. County Manger Arthur Bellot stated that three tables have
been destroyed and will cost $80.00 each to replace.
Commissioners have put out a call for help and ask that anyone having knowledge of who is
responsible for these acts of vandalism, to call the Dixie County Sheriffs Office. They have gone a
step further and are offering a $500.00 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction
of the perpetrators.
Another solution to the problem will be to hire attendants to live on the premises, keeping an eye
out for would-be vandals. It truly is a shame that these measures have to be applied, however, it will
ensure that the taxpayers' investment in these parks will be protected and affords them the
opportunity to continue to enjoy the facilities built for them and their families.



Old Town Elementary School Water Supply

Tests Positive For Elevated Levels of Lead


ByhF1rri Langtbrd- Staff Writer
The Dixie District School authorities were
quick to respond this week to test results which
showed elevated levels of lead in the water used
by :-he OldTown Elementary School and old
Old Town School where some classes are held
and district offices are housed. Letters were sent
out to all parents explaining the situation and
assuring them that they should not be alarmed.
Mark Rains, Director of Support Services
explained that the water is checked monthly by
an independent company specializing in water
testing, Doyle Frierson. This past month, the
United States Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) became concerned when test results
showed a level of 15 parts per billion (ppb), or
0.015 milligrams of lead per liter of drinking
water (mg/L). While the school is not required
to provide another source of drinking water they

The Florida Highway Patrol issued a press
release this week concerning a single vehicle
accident that occurred on January 4th, 2006, just
north of CR 351A and US 19. Emergency
personnel were called to the scene at
approximately 11:45, p.m. and found :two
seriously injured men, one transported by Dixie
EMS and the other by Shandscair to Shands in
Gainesville, FL.
According to the FHP report Johnnie R.
Fletcher, 46 of Cross City, and Michael A.
Henderson, 20 of Brooksville, FL were in the
1995 Chevy truck owned by David Sanders of


have chosen to do so in order to put students and
parents at ease. Bottle water is being served to
students and staff until the water is tested again
and the problem resolved.
- Frierson was able to find the source of the
lead earlier this week. There were two sinks at
the old Old Town School with piping that has
broken down over time. Those pipes are in the
process of being replaced and after flushing the
lines, should provide a more favorable test
result.
If you would like more information about
lead and its effects you can contact Heather A.
Calta, Environmental Specialist at (904) 807-
3300 ext. 3319 or the Dixie County Health
Department at (352) 498-1360. For information
about the school's water facility you can contact
Rains' office at (352) 498-6159.


Cross City. It is unclear who the driver was at
the time of the accident.
The truck was southbound on US 19 in the
inside lane when the driver veered over into the
outside lane and struck a guardrail twice before
going onto the south shoulder and hitting a tree,
coming to rest in the tree line. Sometime during
the series.of crashes one of the occupants s
ejected from the truck. ,
Estimated damage to the truck was $10,000
while damage to the guardrail was estimated at
$250.00.
No charges have been filed as the crash is
still under investigation.

The Board of County
Commissioners held their first
meeting of, the year on
Thursday, January 5, 2006.
With everyone rested after
several long weekends during
the holidays, Commissioners
were ready to. get back to
business.
Chad Reed, Clerk of the N
Court Ad Interim, wasV
welcomed to the Commnissioni
table and introduced to guests
attending the meeting. Reed thanked the Commissioners for their
support and officially asked for a leave of absence from his post as
Director of Emergency Services during his temporary time in the
Clerk's Office.
Twilla Blumenberg came before the Board to ask for their help
in getting her husband, Robert Blumenberg, named on the
Veterans Memorial outside the County Courthouse. Blumenberg
is a veteran of Desert Storm and is currently serving in Iraq, along
with his son and daughter-in-law. County Manager and Veterans
Service Officer Jerry Prater will be in charge of handling the honor
of adding the Dixie resident to the list of distinguished servicemen
and women.


COMMISSIONERS TO


VOTE ON IMPACT FEE


INCREASE FOR


NEW CONSTRUCTION


New construction such as the one shown above will have to pay an impact fee before building permits can
be obtained.
By Terri Langfobrd
After almost a year of research and discussion County Commissioners moved forward with an
ordinance that will raise the impact fee for new construction from $525.00 to $3,5000.00. This
would bring Dixie County in line with fees from surrounding counties and give the county more,
funds to work with as we experience growth.
The second reading of the ordinance was heard at the January 5th meeting. While the
Commissioners were pleased with the final revisions, they held off on voting the ordinance in until
the public has time to review it. Both the Clerk's Office and Commissioner's Office have copies of.
the ordinance that will be voted on at the January 19"' Commission meeting at 6:00 pm.
See "IMPACT FEES" page 5


Dredging Begins In Horseshoe BeachI
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Since last summer's
hurricanes Horseshoe Beach's
canals have been so clogged
with silt and debris that boaters
T. p r -- at times, been unable to launch
0 --their vessels during low tide,
causing problems for residents,
fishermen and the local
economy.
-Prior to the "busy season",
Horseshoe Marina owner, Joe
Spradley, local fishermen and
residents put out a call for help:
Within a week local and state
elected officials along with
representatives from" FEMA
came together for a meeting to
discuss the fate of Horseshoes'
canals. County Engineer Frank
Darabi was on hand with data
on the canals and local
.emergency personnel explained
the dangers in not being able to
launch any rescue efforts"
Locals were overwhelmed and
thankful for the support given
to their community. After
much discussion, it was FEMA
who stepped forward and
S agreed to re-investigate the

the pipe.


Chairman John Driggers noted that currently the county does
not have a memorial for those serving in current conflicts such as
Afghanistan and Iraq. The memorial being erected on the
Greenway will be for all soldiers from all wars. That project
should be complete in the next month.
Dick Edwards, Community Project Consultant, discussed
several issues concerning the SHIP program. During their
discussion, Commissioners adopted a rule dealing with the death of
an individual who dies and still owes the county for a home built
by SHIP funds. The new rule would require persons inheriting the
property to pay the remainder of the loan IF they choose to sell the
property. However, is they choose to keep the property until the
DPL is completed, they. will not have to reimburse the county.
Jack Spivey, Building Official, brought his December 2005
report before the Board. A Total of 97 building permits were
issued. A total of $33,910.52 was collected and deposited in the
Dixie County General Fund and Impact Fee Account and
Transportation Fund, through the various fees assessed by the
county. The majority of those monies coming from impact fees
and building permit fees.
Jerry Martin, Deputy Chief of EMS, also brought his report to
the Commissioners. Martin noted that a total 265 patients were
transported in December of 2005. Ambulances traveled 15,558
miles and used 1,740.68 gallons of fuel during those runs.
The Board meets the first Thursday of each month at 10:00
a.m. and the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. Persons
wishing to be placed on the agenda should call Chad Allen Reed,
Clerk of Court, by 4:00 p.m. on the Friday before the Board
meeting at 352-498-1200. The next meeting will be held on
Thursday, January 19"' at 6:00 p.m.

SEver Hear of Marion Barry? Allow me to refresh your memory.
Barry served four terms as Mayor of Washington, DC, the latter
tvo being interrupted by a six month sojourn in the slammer after
ting caught smoking crack cocaine in an FBI sting operation. He
now serves on the DC city council.
Right, that Marion Barry. Anyway, last week, as he arrived
home from the friendly, neighborhood supermarket, a couple of
teen-age boyshustled him for some money. As is his habit in such
situations, he let them carry some bags of groceries from his car to
his apartment, then gave them a few bucks for their efforts.
1 The boys returned to Barry's home a short time later, Barry let
them in, and to show their gratitude for his earlier generosity, they
stuck a gun in his face and took his wallet, which contained credit
,ards and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Wouldn't such an experience sort of strain your faith in the
inherent goodness of the human species? Wouldn't it, at the very
least, make you want to see those young punks locked up for a few
years to contemplate the error of their ways? Would it not, in fact,
ipake you mad?
I Marion Barry's reaction was as follows: "I hold no animosities.
I don't even want [the young hoodlums] prosecuted...I love you."
What a fine, charitable sentiment! Here we have a discredited
politician, now (hopefully) back on the straight and narrow, and
le's showing the spirit of his renewed character by forgiving those
"ho spitefully used him. And of course, he didn't get mad....
Well, actually he did; only not at the hoodlums. He has now
promised to use his public office as a platform from which to
campaign for tougher gun control laws. He has even proposed a bill
requiring a ten year prison sentence just for owning a gun.
: Gun laws in Washington, DC, already make a. mockery of the
Second Amendment. As is invariably the case where there is strict
zun control, criminals can always get guns, while only law-abiding
citizens are disarmed. Our nation's capital is a textbook example of
the futility of "gun control," so Marion Barry addresses the crime
problem by pushing for more of what causes it.
SBear in mind that two teen-age punks could easily have robbed
the 69 year-old politician using a club, a knife, or just their bare
hands, and his life could have been similarly endangered in the
process; so it's absurd to imply that a gun in any way enabled this
crime to take place.
SThis is "liberal-think" at its most exquisite. He doesn't want the
hoodlums who rewarded his earlier generosity by sticking a gun in
his face and taking his wallet to be punished, but he wants a law-
abiding citizen to spend ten years in prison just for owning a
firearm.
SHere's a man who, despite his misconduct while in office, went
fo considerable lengths to establish recreation facilities for the
city's young people, and even helped create job programs for those
interested in actually working for their money. The punks who
lobbed Barry knew who he was and they knew of his status as a
benefactor (by virtue of his influence on the distribution of tax


-tevenue), and yet they had no qualms about ripping him off.-
Forgiving one's enemies is indeed noble, but it's not a bad idea
4o administer an attitude adjustment first if you're in a position to
' o so. The best favor Marion Barry could have done for these
.young hoodlums would have been to make sure they got the
,punishment they deserve, and see that their punishment was
publicized as a warning to others of their ilk.
' That course of action might actually do something to discourage
.crime in Washington, DC. And reinstating the Second Amendment
.n our nation's capital would be an even better idea.

Letter To The Editor
More Trouble Looms For Ailing Gulf
By Linda Young
Director, Clean Water Network of Florida
On TV, Florida's tourism ads promise clean white beaches and a
glistening Gulf stretching across the horizon. What a surprise Florida
tourists have had this year. They've rubbed their itchy eyes and watched
bulldozers piling up dead fish in the worst red tide episode in decades.
They've seen gasping sea turtles and bloated manatees, victims of red
tide.
The Gulfs sickness has dealt a blow to beachfront hotels, for sure,
and it has also sucker-punched recreational and commercial fishermen
and divers. Even North Florida's famous Apalachicola oysters were
inedible for much of the year, thanks to red tide.
Now, with red tide still lingering, your state and federal governments
are poised to issue a permit for a major new pollution source in the Gulf,
a kind of pollution that has already caused fish to change sexes.
The state Department of Environmental Protection has issued a draft
permit for one of the South's biggest polluters Buckeye Florida's pulp
mill in Taylor County to build a huge pipe to send toxic waste from the
black and smelly Fenholloway River into the Gulf.
The pipe, incredibly, will empty not far from the Big Bend Seagrasses
Aquatic Preserve, an Outstanding Florida Water and nursery ground for
mullet, sea trout, redfish, scallops, oysters, clams, shrimp, blue crab, and
other economically important species.
Most people in Florida don't know much about this crazy plan, but
they should. We still have time to stop it. A tiny band of Taylor County
citizens as well as myself have filed a petition to force the state to
hold an administrative hearing on the pipeline. We point out that this
pollution is preventable and illegal. DEP's draft permit is full of special
loopholes. Incredibly, the five-year permit allows Buckeye to ignore
water quality standardsfor the next nine years!
EPA has proved repeatedly that Buckeye is discharging the deadly
chemical dioxin into the water, but DEP's permit sets no limits on dioxin.
And if you think that's bad then here's the kicker: At the end of that
nine years, when the permit at long last becomes effective, DEP has a
loophole for Buckeye that will allow a special "mixing zone" for
"chronic toxicity" that extends a full three miles around the pipe. The
state is officially sanctioning a legal three-mile dead zone, on top of the
fact that the pipe will send gender-bending chemicals out into Gulf
marine nursery grounds. Scientists have documented the sex-changing
fish. What they don't know is what these chemicals will do to people.
You might think what happens in rural Taylor County won't affect
you. But it will, because those polluted marine creatures will be coming
to shores all over the Gulf, and around the peninsula to the Atlantic.
We need a good dose of public outrage to stop the state's misguided
gift to the polluting Buckeye, and we need it now, before the DEP issues
the final permit. This aging pulp mill already killed a perfectly good river
the Fenholloway once was full of fish and had a drinking-water bottling
plant on its bank. Let's not let it kill the Gulf, too.

Evict the Clutter


w" Clutter has a way of taking over our lives.
Clutter becomes that unwanted house guest that
you can't get rid of. It robs us of peace while we
are home and it also steals any bit of joy when we
leave home. the dread of returning to that mess.
When a home is filled with clutter, it takes on a life of its own. Your
whole day is spent giving it attention, instead of your family and
yourself. Let's look at some of the things we give up, so we can devote
our lives to this inconsiderate house guest.
1. Clutter filled homes, are not welcoming to friends or family. We do
not invite them over often. When we do, we almost kill ourselves trying
to crisis Clean until 3:00 am. Clutter is a very selfish house mate and
wants you all to himself.
2. Clutter in your home, does not allow your mind and body to rest.
The guilt of all the clutter, keeps you working non-stop. You can't
organize clutter; you can only get rid of it, like a cancerous tumor. Clutter
causes you to turn down invitations. It yells at you, you don't deserve to
have any fun; you have not taken care of ME yet. Oh selfish clutter; like
a spoiled child, it requires all your attention.
3. Clutter tells the world that you are not worthy. We have been
brainwashed by this clutter to believe that we do not deserve to have nice
things, since we can't keep our home looking presentable.
4. Clutter never wants you to leave home. This is why he makes is so
difficult for you to pack for vacation. He throws ever obstacle in your
path; laundry needs doing, bills need paying and animals need to be fed.
Clutter will never allow strangers in his domain.
5. Clutter robs you of your health. It drains you of all your energy.
Sometimes you will not allow people to come into your home to help,
because clutter has quarantined you or shall we say imprisoned you in
your dungeon.
6. Clutter's main sustenance is chaos. So when you are running around
your home searching for a document; you end up making a bigger mess
during the search. Clutter is celebrating with a feast of chaos.
7. Clutter loves ignorance, because you know no other way to live. If
you did, he would not have a home that provides him of all the undivided,
attention. You have never enjoyed a peaceful afternoon, without clutter
vying for your every thought and deed. He knows that if you ever feel
one ounce of peace, you will tell him to hit the road, because that peace is
so contagious.
It is time to put clutter in his place and send him packing. So where
does clutter belong and how do you get rid of this unwanted house guest.
It is not easy. He keeps pleading with you that, "you need me", and
laying many guilt trips on you for what relatives will think if you put him
and his unwanted gifts and inherited clutter out into the cold.
Clutter did not accumulate overnight and it may take weeks to evict
him. With small steps your house ,guest will have no clue that you are
evicting him. Slowly but surely the clutter will leave one bag at a time.
Some of you may need to take -a "get tough" approach and order a
dumpster or set up regular pickups from charity thrift stores. What ever
you decide to do, consistency is the ticket to getting him to vacate your
premises. Just 15 minutes a day is all you need to set him on the road.
When you kick him out your door, you will begin to have your home to
yourself again.
It is time to pack his bags and send him out into the world to fend for
himself. You have wasted enough time and energy on him. From now on,
you are going to become very particular about whom you bring home.

"DREDGING"
Continued from page 1


"IMPACT FEES"
Continued from page 1


The Horseshoe Beach Canal system was
constructed in the early 1960's without any
plans, many were irregularly shaped and varied
in width. It wasn't until after the Storm of the
Century in 1993 when debris and silt were
poured into the canals by the storm surge that
dredging was looked into. Almost a year later,
1996, the majority of canals received their first
"clean out".
Once again, storm surge would play a part in
filling up the canal system. This pattern of
problems after storms was made evident after
Hurricane Francis blew by in 2005, causing a
fast build up of silt and debris.
Within a month FEMA concluded their
assessment of the situation and provided a grant
in the amount of $767,600.00 to pay for two of


Eat Spaghetti -

Send A Child
To Camp
By Susan Curtis
The Steinhatchee Garden
Club' is holding a Spaghetti
Dinner January 21st from 5
P.M. to 7:3.0 P.M.. at the
Steinhatchee Community
Center. All proceeds go
towards sending Steinhatchee
and Jena children to summer
camp. The cost of the dinner
is $5.00 for adults and $3.00
for children. Fabulous desserts
can be had for 50 cents.
Why you should come?
The Florida Federation of
Garden Clubs (FFGC) operates
Camp Wekiva every summer
and holds four one-week
sessions for girls and two one-
week sessions for boys
beginning in June. The
children learn much about the
plants and wildlife of Florida
while enjoying the swimming,
arts and crafts, ghost stories
told around a campfire,
songfesis and all the
incumbent "stuff", of camp
life Students may be
sponsored by a FFGC
affiliated garden club or by
individuals. Last year the
Steinhatchee Garden Club
sponsored fourteen children.
Most of these were directly
sponsored by the club but
some generous individuals
paid for a few otherswho had
expressedsed a .desire., to attend.
The Steinhatchee Garden Club
sponsors a Junior Garden Club
program at Steinhatchee
School that lends itself to
broadening the horizons of
young minds.
YOU NILKE THE
DIFFERENCE. Come to the
Spaghetti Dinner and help send
these kids to camp.
The Steinhatchee Garden
Club is also challenging
businesses to sponsor a child
for $175. The Garden Club
will match the business's
donation.
Speaking from personal
experience, my great nieces
attended Camp Wekiva five
years ago when they were
twelve and nine. It opened
their eyes to another world.
The experience of living in a
cabin away from TV, video
games, cell phones and Mom *
and Dad was fantastic. Giving
that opportunity to the. boys
and girls of Steinhatchee and
Jena is a lasting lesson in
environmental education and
self-reliance.
Besides, the spaghetti,
salad and garlic, bread served
with tea or coffee will be
delicious and a bargain. The
Garden Club hopes to decorate
festively for the event but
those wanting to take away are
most welcome too.
See you there.


the major canals to be dredged, Rim Canal and
the Main Canal. Subaqueous Service, Inc. won
the bid for the project, which has been overseen
by local EMS and Donald Lee of Darabi &
Associates, the engineer of record for the
project.
After months of preparations, and a few set
backs due to right-of-way issues with the. laying
of the pipe, dredging began this past Monday,
January 9th in the Rim Canal. Over 7,000 feet of
pipe has been laid for the project. A total of
14,500 cubic yards of silt will be removed,
along with any debris found in the canals.
The contract with Subaqueous gives them
until April 18g' to complete project, however-
Lee noted that they are predicting a March
completion date.


Rod Smith Receives Crime Victims
Leadership Award
ORLANDO The National Center for Victims of Crime, the nation's
leading crime victims' advocacy organization, today presented Rod Smith
its Legislative Leadership Award in recognition of Smith's dedication to
helping crime victims and protecting their rights.
Jeff Dion, Deputy Director of the National Crime Victims Bar
Association, presented Smith with the award during a luncheon held at the
Sheraton World Resort in Orlando. Amid the gathering of crime victim
advocates, law enforcement officers, social workers and prosecutors,
Dion, a nationally recognized expert on civil justice, applauded Senator
Smith's efforts as a State, Attorney and state senator from North Florida.
"Rod Smith is the crime Victims' voice in the Florida legislature," said
Dion, in presenting the award, "Rod Smith gets it," Dion added, praising
the senator's "articulate, passionate advocacy for victims of crime."
Dion noted that, as State Attorney for Florida's Eighth Judicial Circuit
from 1993 to 2000, Smith established one of the first special prosecution
units in the state dedicated exclusively to prosecuting crimes 'against
women and children.
In the Florida Senate, Smith successfully sponsored the legislation
creating Florida's Child Advocacy Trust Fund which provides help to
children who have been the victims of abuse.
Arid during last year's legislative session, Smith led the effort to
defeat tort legislation that would have rolled-back the rights of crime
victims.
"Senator Smith's determination to prevent crime and protect victims'
rights within the civil justice system makes him a 'natural' for this honor."
said National Center for Victims of Crime Executive Director Mary Lou
Leary.
Accepting the award, Smith expressed his gratitude, saying, "I very
much appreciate this recognition, but I'm even more grateful for the
outstanding efforts of the NCVC and all of you who work so tirelessly on
behalf of crime v victims Crime victims need our help and support I've
made it my responsibility to be there for them, and I'm grateful and proud
that you have, too."
Founded inm 1985. the NCVC has worked with more than 10..000
grassroots organizations and criminal justice agencies to sere millions or
crime victims. The NCVC's mission is to forge a nantonal commitment to
help victims ofcrime rebuild their lives. Through collaboration with local,
state, and federal partners, the NCVC provides direct services and
resources to crime victims; advocates for passage of laws and public
policies thai create resources and secure rights and protections for crime
victims, delivers training and technical assistance to victim ser' ce
organizauoni, counselor, ail[ome',,s. criiiinal justice agencies. and allied
* professionals; and fosters cutting-edge thinking about the impact of crime
and the ways in vhich each of us can help victims regain control of their
li.es.

County Attorney Joey Lander explained the
highlights of the document to the audience and
praised the Commissioners for going forth with
what will be an unpopular but necessary, move.
Lander explained that with growth comes added
responsibility to the -county to maintain
roadways, provide emergency and fire services,
law enforcement and recreational services.
County Engineer Frank Darabi of Darabi
and Associates provided the Commissioners
with a study and recommendations. Darabi
suggested that the fee be based on the Consumer
Price Index with the ability to adjust as the
index rises and to be consistent with the
county's Comprehensive Growth Plan. In doing
so, the county will be able to keep up with rising
prices of equipment and materials needed to
maintain services to its residents.
\Vith the exception of deferral or exemption,
any person who develops land located in Dixie
County will be required to pay the impact fee.
Unless deferred no building permits or
certificates of public facilities reservation nor
renewal or extension will be issued until the
impact fee is paid.


One of the advantages of
being disorderly is that
one is constantly making
exciting discoveries.

Only "new" construction will be effected by
the ordinance. If you already have an existing
home or business oh your property you will not
have to pay an additional impact fee. The key
word is "impact". Existing construction will
only be assessed a fee if the expansion,
replacement, remodeling creates or impacts a
change in traffic over and above existing use or
a parking increase. Churches and schools are
exempt. An example of a deferral would be
HUD or other affordable housing.
It is important to note that the county is

Some past projects using impact fee funds are
additions to county roads, 1st District EMS
Station and supplements to grants for county
boat ramps and parks.
The Commissioners were careful to weigh
all their options before making .their final
decision to the increase. However, they know
part of their responsibly to the citizens isi to
insure that the county is financially -able to
conduct the county's business, which includes
services that will be covered by the impact fee.

What a mighty God we serve. Our services today were so very
special. Bro. Jackie did his usual wonderful job delivering God's
messages, the music was outstanding in both services and if you
missed either service you truly missed a blessing.
We had lots of visitors today and we are so thankful for them.
We want them to know how special they really are to us and we
pray that they felt welcome and loved. Our members always want
them to. know we love them and if you're looking for a church
home, we invite you to share ours. If you're just passing through,
come back and visit with us anytime,
Wednesday night will be our usual monthly business meeting
and we pray that as members of Faith, you will come out and help
take care of God's business. This is a privilege and our duty as
Christians. See you there.
Praise God, we had a soul saved in the evening service. How
the-angels must have rejoiced as this soul was claimed for God. It's
always such a blessing for all of us when 've see people saved. God
just continues to bless us so much at Faith.
We pray that you have a safe, happy and healthy week and that
God will bless you richly. Invite a friend, neighbor. relative or co-

Abundant Life & Living
By Lucillc Stockton
Unity, Purpose and Faith, it is
time for the human family to do
kingdom work for God on this
earth planet. The whole world is
full of his glory. Many are
searching for the right path to take
and looking for someone that
know the way, that will say boldly
Follow Me. Your purpose for the
Kingdom is not the same as no
other person on the planet.
You are your own piece of the puzzle and no one can fit into
your space but you, no matter how small you are, you are just
as important as the largest piece of the puzzle. Because it
cannot be completed without you, just as it cannot be
completed without the largest piece. It may be large and can be
seen or recognized before you are, but you are just as important
as it is.
God is no respecter of persons, He has no big I's and little
U's. Seek and find your purpose for the kingdom and work in
it. Strive to maintain Unity, love, peace and happiness within
and all around you. Have faith in God, trust and love yourself,
accept your purpose with knowledge that people change,
policies and programs change with time, but objectives never
change. "Love Life And Live It".


Calvary Temple Assembly
What a joy! What a blessing! To look across the congregation
and see so many new and eager believers preparing themselves to
engage in the process of fulfilling their God given destiny and
purpose for life, is both challenging and rewarding. It has begun!
2006 will be a year of harvest. It is not expected to come easily.
Satan is a very determined adversary, but it will come.
Calvary is being transformed into a "training center" for Christ.
Slowly and deliberately the process develops as more and more of
God's people catch the vision. The harvest cannot be accomplished
unless the Church is equipped for the harvest. 2006 will prove to
be a year of birthing, a year of new or fresh beginnings and we are
excited. We would like for you, if you are serious about becoming
a "servant" of the Lord to become a part of this body of believers.
We encourage you to listen to our daily (Mon-Fri) radio
program at 91.5 FM / 9:25 am & 5:25 pm. Arrangements are being
made to expand this ministry tool to other stations as well. New
Believer class coming soon.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! All area ladies! Calvary will
host Evangelist Debra Cormellas for a special "Women's Ministry
Meeting" Saturday, January 21"st at 7:00 pm. This precious lady is
. tremendously anointed of the Lord. She will also be with us in the
morning service on the 22nd beginning at 10:30 am. On Wednesday
evening (7:00), for the next few Wednesday services we are
teaching on "The transference of the anointing." This is a part of
an ongoing series concerning what we should be expecting in those
last days.
Join us, receive the teaching and take it back to your home
church. If you are already involved in a "Christ centered" church,
please consider lifting Calvary up in prayer. Thank you!

The Word Made
Flesh
'God's Sabbath
Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say in Hebrews 4:1 we
read that there is "a promise being
left us of entering into his rest...".
Verse 4 says "For he spake in a
certain place of the seventh day on
this wise, And God did rest the
seventh day from all His work".
Then it goes on to say that we too
can enter His rest. It says that
Israel did not enter into rest, the
promised land, because of unbelief.
Then the Bible plainly states that
Joshua did not bring them into rest
when he took Israel across Jordan
into Canaan, showing us that the
real rest of God is still ahead of us.
Verse 9 states; "There remaineth
therefore a rest to the people of
God." I, the son of man, say God's
Sabbath day is not a day of the
week. The Jewish Sabbath was
only a shadow of the real,
prefiguring the true Sabbath, which
is the fullness of Christ. When we
come into the fullness of Christ we
then have entered God's day of rest.
No wonder the Bible says: "Let nn
man inerefore judge you in meat or
drink, or. in respect of an holy day,
or of the new moon, or of the
Sabbath days; which are a shadow
of things to come; but the body is of
Christ" (Colossians 2:16-17). I, the
son of man, say Israel thought they
had provided God a place of rest,
when they built the temple. But,
Isaiah made it very plain that the
natural temple made with stones.
was not God's resting place. "Thus
saith the Lord, The heaven is my
throne, and the earth is my
footstool: where is the house that ye
build unto me? and where is the
place of my rest?" (Isaiah 66:1)
This scripture is quoted by Stephen
in Acts 7:49 when Stephen told the
Sanhedrin that God does not dwell
in temples made with hands. He is
telling them that Christ, the one
they crucified is the real resting
place of God the house that God
lives in. I, the son of man, say
coming into the fullness of Christ is
coming into God's Sabbath. And,
the day of the Lord God's Sabbath
day, is the 1,000 year day when the
body of Christ is caught up fully
into Him to rule and reign with
Him for. 1,000 years Continued
next week

when you're as great as
I am.

New Prospect Baptist News
What a blessing it was to be in God's house again Sunday! Our
choir sounded really good, and we were blessed with a special
song by Bros. Jody Mayo and Danny Riels, who did a fine job.
Bro. Billy then brought a very moving message from John 13:1-10,
giving all much food for thought.
Our Ladies' Ministry met Monday evening, Jan. 9th, as well as
the Pastor/Deacons. Our monthly Business Meeting is Wednesday
evening, Jan. 11 th. Lydia Baptist Church will hold a revival from
Jan. 15th-18th, with Carroll Roberson in concert, beginning at 7:00
P. M. nightly. Also on Jan. 18th, we will have our monthly
Fellowship Supper at New Prospect.
There are presently many people on our area church prayer
lists...please-be praying for them, as well as our people in the
military and our nation's leaders; the power of prayer cannot be
overstated. We would like to invite any visitors to come and share
with us in the worship of our Lord at New Prospect...all are
welcome! Have a good week and a Happy New Year, and may
God bless and keep you safe.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
The Day of the Lord.
The Day of the Lord (God's People) will bring forth truth that has
been locked up by fear of the unknown.
The son of man (God's army) is now coming forth, being born out of a
church system, coming forth being born out of all realms that the world as
a whole has walked in.
Eph. 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and
the Church.
The word church in the Greek is Ekklesia and means: that which is
called out, the called out ones. The Sons of God are not just called but,
they are called out. Now there are three calls: the called out, of the called
out, of the called out.
Mat. 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this
rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against
it.
The word hell is hades the unseen world. The word rock is divine
revelation. Now up on the divine revelation God is building His church
(His called out ones) and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them.
There are three calls. Let us read Act. 7:38 This is he, that was in the
church (called out ones) in the wilderness with the angel which spake to
him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively
oracles to give unto us:
Now they were called out of Egypt and they left out with Moses.
Egypt means flesh a type of works of the land of bondage, out of the flesh.
They were called to leave off the works of the flesh. When they left out of
Egypt, they went into the wilderness and that is where they have been
going around in circles in the wilderness; between Egypt and truth.
God wants to do more than just call us out of Egypt, wants to get the
Egypt (flesh) out of us. Moses taught the people only types and shadows
and they were only an outward show. All this was only one call and it was
a place for them until Christ could come, and then the anointed would
work within. Now the church (The called out) must move again.
Mat. 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen. Many are called
(Greek, irivited) but, few are chosen. This is because the word chosen
really means choosing a after testing. You will be tested in many ways
before you are chosen to do the works of God. The chosen will not be
doing in them. You can't do the works of God until God is incarnated in
you, for only God can do the work of God.
The Bible says where there is no vision the people perish but the Sons
of God say you will also perish if you stay all your life in a vision. A
vision is good, it is your covering until you are swallowed up into the
reality of fulfillment; you must progress until you become your vision.
Most of the church world today are staying in visions and shadows
and that is not what God intended. A shadow is not the real thing. Take for
example a tree. It has a shadow on the ground and it's good to stand in on
a hot day, but God wants us to become that which makes the shadow. The
Son's of God say, for you to stay in the shadow until you become that
which makes the shadow, but the shadow is not a real thing.
The purpose of "seeing" is to 'look towards becoming Seeing is
knowing, and knowing is becoming. for you are transformed into the
image of what you see. To be continued.

Entire Family


By Leanne Ely

Perpetual Pantry


Feeding your family is a bit of a part time
job, especially if you want to make sure they
are getting healthy, nutritious food. One of the most important principles
in feeding that family is having a well stocked pantry, or what I call a
perpetual pantry. Building a perpetual pantry helps you to always have
something on hand so you're able to make dinner or whatever else you
want to make, at the drop of a hat.
When you're stocking your own Perpetual Pantry, you are going to
want to stock what you use. Keep on hand the things that make up the
ingredients for the foods you cook, snack on and need for packing
lunches.
Want to see what I have in my Perpetual Pantry? Here is a list but just
remember, these items are all foods that I use for cooking. Just copying
my list won't work unless this is how you too, cook. Check out my
website for sample menus that will go with this pantry, at http://,
www.savingdinner.com/ .
Canned Items: all manner of tomato products, diced tomatoes,
whole tomatoes, spaghetti sauces, tomato paste. I keep a variety of .sizes
available, too. Canned beans: black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans,.
whatever bean you can find that you'll eat. It's less expensive to use dried
beans, but these are still cheap and will work in a pinch. Canned fish:
tuna and salmon. Canned fruit and vegetables: stock the ones you like
and will use. Canned soups and broths: stock the ones you use. I use a
lot of chicken broth (low-sodium has more flavor). Canned milk:
sweetened condensed, evaporated both work great in baking, if you need
them.
Condiments: ketchup, mustards (yellow, Dijon, whole grain), pickles,
(dill and sweet), relish, mayonnaise, A-1, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasqo,
salsa, stir fry sauces, soy sauce (low-sodium, if you can find). Once
opened, store in fridge (except soy sauce).
Oils and Vinegars: Vegetable oil of choice (I like a cold pressed
safflower oil by Hollywood), olive oil, sesame oil for stir fry. All oil will
go rancid staying out. After it is opened it has to go in the fridge. Olive
oil will solidify, so put it in a wide-mouth jar and spoon it out to use.
White and red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar and balsamic vinegars.
Peanut Butter and Jelly: Peanut butter (crunchy or creamy), jelly,
jam and fruit spread or conserve, honey. My peanut butter needs to be.'
refrigerated after opening. Check your label to be sure.
Herbs and Spices: To keep the price down on these spices, go to a
dollar store or Wal-Mart to stock up as much as possible. Basil, thyme,
marjoram, rosemary, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili
powder, paprika, oregano, ginger, dried mustard cinnamon, peppercorns
for the peppermill, nutmeg and curry powder are in my spice cabinet
because I USE all of them. Only buy what you use.
Baking Center: sugar (white, brown, powdered), flour (white, whole
wheat, other), pancake mix (I hope you made mine!), baking powder
(should be kept in fridge after opening), baking soda, salt, baking
chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, chocolate chips, nuts, baking mixes (cake,
brownie, etc.)
Pasta and Rice and Grains: an assortment of pastas that you will
use. Lasagna noodles, spaghetti noodles, ziti, rotini, fusilli, fettucine,
linguine...only what you use. rice I much prefer brown, but get what
you'll use. Oats, split peas, dried beans (white beans, navy beans, black
beans, pinto beans), lentils, barley.
Breads and Cereals: whatever you use. Bread should go in the
freezer if it doesn't get used up right away. Tortillas should be stored in
the fridge.
Potatoes and Onions: Russets, Red Rose potatoes, sweet potatoes,
butternut squash (or other whole squash in season, except summer
squashes which need refrigeration) brown onions, red onion's. Keep"
potatoes away from the light or they turn green (and those green parts.are
poisonous and must be cut off before eating). Also, don't store potatoes
next to apples. Apples give off ethylene gas that causes potatoes to
sprout.
I hope this list helps you get started with your own Perpetual Pantry.
It's only a start and you need to customize it to fit your family's needs,
but having your pantry well-stocked means a meal is just minutes away.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2006


Buddy Martin's

Weekly Sports Commentary

The price you pay for youth
It turns out that youth .and inexperience came
with a price for the Tampa Bay Bucs. Their
young quarterback and NFL Rookie of the Year
running back coughed up turnovers that were
converted into the only points needed by the
Washington Redskins Saturday. ..
Veterans make mistakes, too, of course.
So when Chris Simms threw a completion to the
wrong jersey, J.J. Arrington, and the Redskins
converted it into the first touchdown, he wasn't
the only quarterback guilty of that crime. It just
happened to come in the first round of the NFC Wildcard
Playoffs.
Add to that the fumble by Carnell "Cadillac"
Williams which was returned for a touchdown by
Sean Taylor and the Bucs dug themselves a two-touchdown
deficit they could not overcome.
Having said that, both Simms and Williams came
back and played with composure in the second half -
Simms diving over for his first NFL rushing touchdown
and Cadillac continuing to pound into the line for tough
yardage.
The game appeared to come down to the Bucs
needing about a yard for a first down with 7:35 to play and
Gruden calling a pass play which was foiled by Greg
Williams' defense.
They got another chance in the final 3:45 when
Brian Kelly made a spectacular interception of Mark
Brunnell, but Edell Shepherd's reception of Simms' pass
was ruled incomplete. It was the right call, but I think it's
also ridiculous new interpretation of the "continuation rule"
which mandates that the ball must be possessed even to the
ground, although Shepherd clearly had it when he crossed
the goal.
The ground can't cause a fumble but it can cause
an incompletion?
A tough way to lose after a brilliant comeback. A
disappointment for Buc fans, yes, but a season that ends on
promise for the 2006 Bucs team because all that youth
will be more experienced next fall.
Quick Jump Starts
1. After getting booted out at Virginia Tech for more bad
behavior, Marcus Vick says he's going to "the next level,"
which leads one to wonder if heconsiders the Arena League
a promotion.
2. O1" course Bill Parcells re-upped with the Cowboys -,,
whai else is he gonna do besides go back to Jersey and
hang around the diners?
3. The outcry for their hometown star in Houston will be
so koud that the Texans will almost certainly have to take
Texas QB Vince Young should he forgo his senior year -
even if Reggie Bush might be a smarter choice.
4. cheer players for eschewing the NFL and coming
back for their senior season, but there's never going to be a

Dear Buddy: Well, the season is finally over. No doubt that
Texas deserves the number one standing as well as USC
being number two, BUT Penn State's Nittany Lions
finishing at number three deserves some accolades
(especially from you as you predicted they would lose "up
to six" games). I guess being 11-1 is "close" to 5-6 as you
predicted!
Happy New Year. P.S. Did you order that mustard to go
with the eggs on your face???
Ed Tezek]ian
ED: Okay, props to the Nittany Lions. I'll take a bite of that
crow sandwich, but that's it -- only one "I told you so" a
season per customer.
Clipboard
Bowls gain favor with football folks
As I said last week, I'm a bowl guy now, hoping that the
NCAA will keep all 28 of the post-season games instead of
going to a 16-team playoff. How else could we get to see so
many schools put their best players on prime time display?
This revelation after 35 years of campaigning for a playoff.
The bowls seem to be gaining in popularity among football
coaches commentators lately. Among those who have
weighed in as pro-bowlers are ESPN's Mike Ditka, Florida
coach Urban Meyer, Iowa's Kirk Ferentz and Around The
Horn's Bill Plaschke. Keep the bowls and if the NCAA
wants a four team or a one-game playoff at the conclusion,
then fine.

Seeds of Success
"OK ladies, what's it going to be? Pies or tools?" From what
we know, that's pretty much how the conversation went. The
ladies? A group of school teachers in Minnesota. The problem?
Money or the lack of it. Every one of us knows that our school
teachers today don't make the kind of money that their education,
dedication and devotion deserve. And you know what? It wasn't a
bit better back in 1957.
Two things dawned on these smart women. One, they were a
'fairly well educated group. And two, they had a good part of the
summer free to do a project, even a big project. So this group of
enterprising teachers got together to come up with an idea to make
some extra income. A lot of things were discussed, but what they
decided was to make gardening tools. Yeah, gardening tools. Not
just sell them, mind you, but to actually make some specialized
gardening tools and market them.
Most of the women were proficient gardeners, which is why
they chose gardening tools rather than baking pies. And each one
knew of some special function for which a tool should be designed
to make a certain task easier: small hand shovels made to fit a
woman's hand, weeders that were lighter and easier to use, bulb
planters designed to dig the right size hole for specific flowers.
I guess the idea was good enough, but I'm not sure the
implementing was on course. And that was the problem. The
group had lots of experience in both gardening and teaching, but
no marketing experience. Once they built the tools, they didn't
have the slightest idea how to sell them. And a couple of women
did hit the streets in order to sell the fancy little garden tools. But
when they found out what the competition was like, not to mention
dealing with wholesalers, jobbers, suppliers, retail buyers, returns -
well, truth is, it was just too darn much trouble for the small return
they were getting on their little garden tools. It just wasn't worth
it!
So, they made the decision to quit making gardening tools. It
was a good idea that just didn't work out. But now what were they
going to do with all those left over parts and supplies they had?
Well, being talented, naturally resourceful teachers, they did what
came naturally. They decided to take the leftover parts and design
something they could use with their students. Yeah, I know you
probably thought it was all started by those clever Japanese or
some big huge toy company, but it wasn't! It's a Little Known Fact
that it was a small group of frustrated Minnesota school teachers,
trying to earn a few extra bucks by making and selling garden
tools, who came up with one of the most popular toys ever
invented. It's one I'd bet your children-had, or have. I did! I loved
mine the way those cute little trucks operated. Well, you
remember Tonka Toys!

DID YOU KNOW?
Why spend your hard-earned money on expensive tooth
whiteners when you can get the same benefits by eating an orange?
Tooth-whitening products contain ascorbic acid to give you a
gleaming smile, but ascorbic acid is none other than vitamin C, and
you can get it for a fraction of the cost from citrus fruits. There's
some evidence that getting ascorbic acid from fruit is actually
better for your teeth than getting it from commercial products.
"The acid scrubs stains and bacteria off the enamel of the tooth, but
without any of the abrasiveness of a whitening kit," says dietician
Katey Clarke, R.D. (Sun)
Garlic is the best natural way to combat colds and flu, but other
S foods can help during the winter-long battle. The vitamin C in
orange juice will shorten the duration of symptoms. In fact, it's
important to drink fluids of all kinds when you're recovering from
a cold or the flu. Chicken, soup does work. It fights inflammation
and the heat breaks up congestion. Bananas counteract the upset
stomach that often accompanies colds and flu. Believe it or not, an
ingredient in chocolate fights persistent cough. In a study
conducted in Britain, the compound theobromine worked better
than prescription cough medicines containing codeine. (Sun)
Even social drinkers may be storing up problems for the future.
Research by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and
Alcoholism found that even though many set their own drinking
limits, when they break them they tend to drink more the next time.
They may also feel guilty the following day, and scientists believe
this may create a feeling of helplessness that leads to over-
indulgence in the future. "Most people can enjoy alcohol without a
S- problem," said Mark Muraven, Ph.D. of the State University of
New York, who conducted the study. "However, some people
cannot." (The National Enquirer)
In the future, when babies get shots for polio and the measles,
they may also get a vaccine to protect them from getting fat.
4 Researchers have found that obese people have been affected by
certain bacteria and viruses, whereas average-weight people have
not, leading them to believe there may be a link between obesity
i | and infections. It is generally believed that most obesity is caused
4 by overeating, lack of exercise and not.having enough willpower.
But viruses are one contributing factor that scientists have only
-4 recently discovered. (The National Enquirer)
Broccoli allows the body to eliminate cancer causing toxins. A
study found that three day old broccoli sprouts have 20 times the
concentration of sulforaphane a compound that helps fight cancer
as mature broccoli. Half the subjects in the blind study were
given the equivalent of 2 ounces of broccoli sprouts each day for
two weeks. The cancer causing chemicals were eliminated from
the bodies of those who were given the sulforaphane extract. (The
National Enquirer)
Want a lasting marriage? Wed between the ages of 23 and 27
and the odds are higher that you will. The average age for
Americans getting hitched for the first time is 26 for women and
27 for men, according to a new survey for the National Fatherhood
Initiative. "Those marriages turned out better, but maybe not
because of the age," says study spearhead Norval Gleen,
r University of Texas sociology professor. "Some people may be
just too picky or too choosy or not extremely desirable." John
Hopkins University sociology professor Andrew Cherlin says the
definition of who is too old to marry is changing. "In the 1950s, 28
Ifn was really old to get married," explains Cherlin. "Now it's not so
ige sold, which means there are more unmarried people for a 28-year-
old to choose from." (National Examiner)

Begging your humble
apologies, but I goofed. The
button contest will end March
1,1th, the day of our Spring
Fling event not the auction
day.
Have you made any
resolutions'? I made one that
I'm desperately trying to keep
but it's slowly slipping away.
My resolution is to answer e-
mails sooner! This is a good
laugh for people who know me
and are waiting for a reply, but
keep the faith folks because the
year is still early.
Don't forget about the
charity auction at the
American Legion in Newberry
Sat. Jan. 14th. Viewing is at
1pm and the auction starts at
2pm. There will be a live and
silent auction along with a 50-
50, drawings and the button
contest. Some gorgeous and
unique articles, .not.~tpmention
oodles of gift certificates from
businesses will be up for bid.
Please give me a couple of
weeks to mail your receipts to
you for your 2005 tax
deductions, we've been going
in circles here lately. We can
always use donation for future
auctions and yard sales. If you
have-,any questions or if you
care to, contribute please

all fire departments in Dixie County.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
we will be working toward this
position teaching all others the VFF
classes to reach state mandates for
accountability to the Dixie County
citizens.
Commissioner Land stated that it
doesn't seem fair to all the ones that
have stuck with us all these years with
old equipment and now that we have
new equipment these mandates cause
them to be unqualified.
Chad replied that we are not the
ones making the rules and we are not
trying to get rid of anyone or any
certain fire departments. Our goal is to
comply and bring our fire departments
through to a new level.
The dive team was discussed by

EARL GREEN,
STEINHATCHIEE/TAYLOR
COUNTY BOAT RAMP
COMMITTEE
Mr. Earl Green came before the
Board regarding interest in a joint
partnership between Dixie and Taylor
Counties to build a boat ramp in the
Jena area. He stated that there are five
(5) active from the Taylor County side
and five (5) active from Dixie County
on the committee.
Mr. Green presented a visual
power point presentation regarding the
options. It has been difficult to locate a
site. He.stated that the committee feels
that the nine (9) acre track on the Dixie
County side is the most feasible option
and is near the existing public boat
ramp. The owner is willing to work
with us on the sale price. Suwannee
River Water Management District
(SRWMD) has given a positive review.
This option was presented last week to
the Taylor County Commission and
received their preliminary support.
Presently, Dixie County has the only
public boat ramp in the area.
Commissioner Driggers stated the
problem at the existing boat ramp is
parking. Board agreed.
Commissioner Lamb inquired
about the Corp Engineers input.
Mr. Green stated they have not
talked with the Corp Engineers, but
SRWMD has said closing down the old
ramp and relocating to a new location
would work.
Commissioner Lamb
recommended having a conversation
with them. SRWMD has a lot of
weight but you still need to talk with
them first.
Duane Fletcher stated that he owns
property on both sides of the road
adjoining this site. This is not at the
mouth of the river as promoted. This is
a residential area and it will be a
problem for us. I would like to see the
studies. Closer to the mouth of the
river would be better or on the Taylor
County side. You are talking about a
lot of boaters; Dixie County does not
support the "no wake" zone and Taylor
County does. The noise will be a
problem.
Commissioner Valentine stated
that this is a presentation and no
decision will be made without public
input by having a public hearing. The
Board assured Mr. Fletcher there
would be a public hearing before any
decisions are made.
Mr. Green stated that he worked
on the Keaton Beach boat ramp project
and all these same concerns were
brought up and addressed.
John VonStein discussed parking
problems at the existing boat ramp.
Mr. Green stated that Taylor
County would like to have it on their
side of the river; but SRWMD says it
can not be permitted on the Taylor
County side due to dredging through
virgin saltwater marsh.
Clay Bethea, Taylor County
Commissioner, came before the Board.
He stated the coast is changing; Woods
Marina has been sold, Westwind is
under contract; Seahag is no longer.
Riverhaven is the only Marina left. I
don't own property in Jena or
Steinhatchee, but my pleasure is a 23
foot boat with my family. There are a
lot of people with 10 foot john boats
and we need to continue helping them.
Commissioner Valentine stated we
tried to get more property at the
existing boat ramp. Arthur Bellot can
confirm this. The property was too
expensive; Dixie County can not afford
it.
Commissioner Lamb discussed the
parking problems at the existing ramp.
He expressed appreciation to the
committee for the presentation.
Commissioner Valentine stated
that the crabbers have to leave out at
4:00 AM due to the parking problems
at the existing boat ramp.
Arthur Bellot stated that the
condos and marinas are causing a
problem in Suwannee, Horseshoe
Beach and Jena due to the purchase
and conversion of marinas and boat
ramps; but if there is a sticker on the
boat they have a right to put it in the
water. Money collected for these
stickers goes to fund the Boating
Improvement Grants that Dixie County
and Taylor County are using to build
and rebuild boat ramps and docks,
including the Jena proposal. He
discussed the Fire Department Mutual
Aid Agreement briefly and requested
Commissioner Bethea's support for a
joint dispatch of both Jena and
Steinhatchee VFD's, on all
fires/emergencies due to periodic
scarcity of volunteers.
Chad Reed stated that he needs
both Boards to approve Dixie and
Taylor Fire Chief's to work out, the
details.
Commissioner Bethea informed
the Board that they presently have a
full time fighter in Steinhatchee 24/7
and he supports the joint arrangement.
Nancy Conrad stated that the
presentation has been done very
professional, but would like to know
what the cost for Dixie County would
be. This has not been discussed.
Larry Shugart stated he lives near
the proposed site and had questions
about the tax base. He feels Dixie


County will be losing taxes; Taylor
County isn't going to have to fund the
sheriff duties, etc....
Joey Lander, by speaker phone,
informed the public that this is not a
Commission Committee. Anyone can
present another option. At this point, it
is an idea to consider trying and
solving a problem; mainly parking. To
debate at this time is premature.
Commissioner Hays thanked Mr.
Green for his presentation and stated
this is a start for a much needed
project.
TEDDY KIGHT. HORSESHOE
BEACH TOWN COUNCIL
Teddy Kight inquired if the Board
has made a decision about the spoil site
'property needed by the Town of
Horseshoe Beach.
Commissioner Lamb stated he is
not in favor of giving it away.


Commissioner Valentine said that
an appraisal needs to be done and it
will be done by the next meeting.
ANTHONY MESSINA
Mr. Messina came before the
Board to find out what they had
decided about the travel trailers issue
in a residential area on property near
his.
Commissioner Hays stated that the
owners came before the Board at the
last meeting and they have applied for
all permits and done all things they
have been asked to do. They agreed to
move two of the trailers at the end of
hunting season.
Mr. Messina inquired about the
privacy fence that the Commission had
agreed on and this same problem
coming up in the future; he handed out
a copied page from the LDR's
regarding single family residential
areas.
Billy Keen stated that he would
ask the owners as a favor to put up a
fence, but they do not have to.
Commissioner Hays read the hi-
lighted part of the page from the
LDR's, "In these districts, permitted
non-residential uses and special
exceptions may be subject to
restrictions and requirements
necessary to preserve and protect the
single family residential character of
these districts ".
Joey Lander, by speaker phone,
discussed.
Commissioner Hays asked if we
can require a fence.
Mr. Lander said we can ask them
to.
Mr. Messina said it has been 28
calendar days since the first meeting he
attended. This area is for single family
dwelling and this is four (4) travel
trailers.
Commissioner Driggers asked
Billy Keen to talk with the owners and
if they won't put up the fence we will
proceed in a different direction.
PAUL LAMBERT, DIXIE
COUNTY RESIDENT
Paul Lambert addressed the Board
about the sandbar problem at Hinton
Landing.
He stated this problem has
decreased his property value for the
home he owns at Hinton Landing and
is concerned because he is trying to sell
it.
Commissioner Hays told him that
this is being worked on.
Arthur Bellot stated that it is a
problem because the river has been
high for a year. But they are putting
the dredge on the equipment owned by
the contractor at this time and hope to
soon be underway.
Mr. Lambert inquired about
Sammy Royal and if the county
contracted with him to do the job.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
we did not contract with him; we
agreed to provide him a piece of
equipment to do the dredging for us.
We will pay for labor and the use of his
barge as necessary.
Commissioner Land stated he
would like this in the newspaper
because he has received some calls on
this.
WILLIAM DOWDY
Mr. Dowdy stated that Jungle
Drive Road needs to be repaired.
January '05 they put rock on it part
way.
Commissioner Hays asked
Howard Reed to look into this.
JOE RUTH, RECYCLING
COORDINATOR
Joe Ruth discussed the FDEP
Consent Order that was signed by the
Board on October 6"', 2005. We
followed instructions and waited for a
response from them due to the
exception. They did not respond to
me, but called Arthur Bellot. They are
requiring the Notice of Consent Order
to be published within 14 days. It will
be published in the next issue of the
local newspaper. The Board agreed for
this to be done.
Mr. Ruth reported that Larry Keen
will not be leaving his position to work
with the hurricane relief after all, due
to another employee being out sick and
will be out for quite awhile.
A demonstration of a 2005
machine was discussed by Mr. Ruth.
He stated it loaded a truck with scrap
metal and in 14 minutes the truck was
pulling out. Joe recommended for the
Board to purchase the piece of
equipment at a cost of $48,222.15 and
advertise the position for an operator;
the funds are in the 2005-2006 budget.
Commissioner Land inquired
about the front-end loader and crawler
that are not being used. If you buy this
equipment it needs to be used.
Commissioner Lamb discussed the
equipment and hauling of the
equipment. He suggested putting the
dozier on the market if this new
equipment is purchased.
Commissioner Land stated you
need to sell the front-end loader too.
Joe said that by law we are
required to have a working front-end
loader at the C & D site.
Motion by Commissioner
Driggers, seconded by Commissioner
Lamb and carried to purchase the
equipment for $48,222.15 and sell the
D3 Dozier and the oldest single axle
packer truck in January 2006.
Arthur Bellot conimented on the
cash flow problems that seem to
always come this time of year. It will
level off when the taxes begin to come
in.
Commissioner Lamb asked Arthur
and Joe to check on a lease with option
to buy for a couple of months.
The Board agreed for Arthur and
Joe to work this out and approved for


them to do whatever is necessary to
purchase the equipment.
The Board approved for Joe Ruth
to advertise for a driver/light duty
mechanic operator.
The Board agreed to take sealed
bids with a reserve for the D3 Dozier.

OFFICIAL & SAFETY DIRECTOR

several calls on an old mobile home on
South Custer Street and has red tagged
it. It should be taken care of soon.
Billy inquired from the Board
clarification on how the Board wants
him to proceed with informing them of
problems that come up. He stated he
was trained to contact the
Commissioner in the district where the
problem occurs. Does the Board want
to continue this or do they want him to
contact the whole Board.
The Board agreed that he should
continue the way he has been doing.
Commissioner Lamb commented
on a situation that happened in his
district and how Billy handled it. A
man had pulled a dump of a trailer in
behind a nice home. He proceeded to
pull up survey stakes and cut some
trees down; there was no septic and no
well. Billy gave him 15 days to
comply and the man didn't. Billy gave
him an additional 4 days apd told him
the next time he came he would have a
deputy with him. He ended up having
to take the deputy with him; at this
point, the man took him serious and
asked for one more day. The man
moved out of the county.
At some point near 9:00 PM,
Attorney Joey Lander had to leave the

The Board agreed to advertise for
a construction manager.
Arthur informed the Board that

system to meet new requirements. This

system.
The Board concurred.
Arthur presented a Memo from Joe
Hubert Allen. Mr. Allen states that at
some point the Clerk's office took on
the task of filing the ordinances and
resolutions to assist the County

increase workload in the Clerk's office,
Mr. Allen requests that this function be
turned back over to the Commission

The Board agreed for it to be
transferred back to the Commission

Commissioner Valentine inquired

where he stated that the amendment to
an ordinance had been done.

Arthur stated that he had been
asked by the Board to inquire of
Dennis Davis if he would be interested
in a position with Dixie County as
County Engineer/Coordinator and he is
interested; but only if all Board
members are in favor. He lives in
Williston and drives to Gainesville to
work everyday. His grandparents live
on Purvis Landing Road; so he has
some roots here.
Commissioner Valentine stated he
is very knowledgeable and feels like he
would be a good choice.
Arthur said to be honest; whoever
you hire can't do it all. They will have
to farm out certain things at times; such
as drawings and complicated projects
like bridges.
Commissioner Hays stated that
Mr. Davis had done pretty much all the
work on the Little League Field
Project. He actually filed the
application for us on to the grant
agency for the project.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that what we pay a contracted engineer;
we could pay our own employee. We
pay out approximately $203,000 per
year to a contract engineer when we
could have our own "full-time"
engineer for 1/8 of the cost.
Arthur stated it would take a lot of
the strain off Howard Reed and me on
some of the more complicated projects
that we undertake in-house.
Commissioner Land stated he
would also get insurance and
retirement as an incentive.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that he could help Mr. Spivey when

District and Old Town Hammock area who received gifts donated due to the generosity of folks in
our area.
This year Santa made his first stop at Bertha Lee Ellison's home. They also visited the Boys &
Girls Club during their Steinhatchee tour.
As always Santa brought smiles to the faces he met. Next year you had better keep a look out in
your neighbor, because you just never know when Santa and the Army truck will show up!
If you would like to make a donation to this special toy drive, you can contact David Osteen at

The Tri-County Marine
Corps League Detachment No.
1018 and its Auxiliary wish to
thank all of the businesses,
stores, organizations, offices,
bikers and individuals who
helped make our 2005 Toys for
Tots drive a great success! We
could not have done it without
you! Over 1200 needy and
underprivileged children in the
tri-county area received toys
and gifts for Christmas. These
were given out in Chiefland
and Cross City. Also, we want
to thank all who helped the
Marines and their ladies with
this endeavor! A complete list
of donors will appear in next
week's paper.
We are continuing to work
on the Hardee House,
our home and future museum
located just west of Chiefland
on NW 110th St. The
Commandant has called for a
"work day" for Saturday,
January 21st 8:30 AM, to get
'the building ready to" be
painted. Anyone that can
come out and help, will be
greatly appreciated! Also, we
can use donations of white
paint if anyone has some
sitting around (call No. below.
We are hoping to finish
this lovely old mansion within
this year so that it can be
turned into a museum for
veterans. When completed, the
home and -museum will be
open, especially to school
children in the hopes that it
will enlighten them as to past
history and what veterans did
for our country. We need your
help and ideas!
The Marine Corps League
and Auxiliary. We are still
looking for that little child who
cannot use their legs. We have
a trike waiting just for you!
The trike program is another
one of our community projects.
We have given out over eight
such trikes and hope to give
out many more. These trikes
are donated at no cost to the
families of the children. We
host fund raisers and accept
donations to pay for these
trikes.
The Marines are the
smallest family of Veterans in
the US, but we are "BIG" at
supporting our local
community projects, leading
and participating in local
parades, supporting .and
assisting our Veterans and
their families, donating trikes
and last but not least, our great
Toys for Tots Program.
Any Marine who has
served 90 days or more in
service, with an honorable
discharge, is eligible to join the
Marine Corps League, and
ladies of eligible Marines are
also eligible to join our
Auxiliary. We meet the third
Tuesday of each month at the
Hardee House one mile West
of Chiefland on NW 110 St.
However, we are having a
cook-out and meeting on
Sunday, January 15th at 2 PM
this month. Any Marines and
their families are more than
welcome to come be with
us. For more information,
please call Cmdt. Harry
Hopwood at 352-543-6879.

great and sometimes we have four or five sitting together and
enjoy what they do.
We still have seats on the bus trip to Tampa to the fair on
February 14"'. The cost is $19.00 and it is always a fun trip. For
information call 493-2801.
We always enjoy visitors who come by and today we had three
brothers taking their mother out for a ride. They enjoyed our
potluck dinner and it was a great day for the mother.
We did have a rather special dinner with sweet and sour franks,
onion casserole, soybeans, cheese and mac, lots of salad and
desserts. Sarah made her famous crackers and it was all so good.
19 members and 12 visitors were present.


Blood Donor Will Win New Car
One lucky blood donor will become the proud owner of a 2006
Pontiac G6, donated by Wade Raulerson Pontiac, when LifeSouth
Community Blood Cenitei -Civitan Region culminates the yearlong
"Driving for Life" promotion Saturday, January 21, by announcing
a winner.
"We began this event last year as a way to thank each person
who donates blood by rewarding them with a chance to win a car,"
said LifeSouth District Director Carolyn Quintanilla. "When we
draw a winner, that blood donor will be truly rewarded for their
selfless act."
Blood donors have one chance to win the car for each time they
donated blood between December 24, 2004 and December 31,
2005. Eligible donors have been notified by mail with the details of
the event. For a chance to win the car, eligible donors must bring
their postcard notification and photo I.D. to LifeSouth's Newberry

between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. to register. A winner will be drawn and
announced on air on WTRS 102.3 FM & 104.9 FM at 2 p.m. The
winner will have 20 minutes to contact LifeSouth and arrive at the
donor center to claim the car, or a new winner will be drawn.
"We are grateful to wade Raulerson for donating the car that
has made this event possible, and we are grateful to each person
who donated blood throughout the year to help save a life," added
Quintanilla. For more information, readers may call (888) 795-
2707.

actual starting point and length of the trip varies from week to
week but every trip always ends at Manatee Springs State Park.

Springs. These two paddles are perfect for those park visitors that

Springs. These paddles are perfect for those wanting to get out on
the river but are unsure just how far they can paddle.

asked "Who is the adorable little girl!" In the picture above is Miss Cally Stills, now three years
old. She is the cutie that adorned the Advocate's front page in 2004 for the Christmas In The Park
story and in 2005 as a prelude to this year's annual event at the Cross City Park.
We would like to thank her Grandpa Edgar Futch, for helping us to name our "Cover Girl."

Division Of
Forestry Sends
Resources To
Assist With
Texas &
Oklahoma
Wildfires
The Florida Division of
Forestry sent 75 personnel to
Texas and Oklahoma to assist
with the wildfires that are
occurring in these states. Both
Texas and Oklahoma are
members of the Southeastern
Interstate Forest Fire Compact
Agreement, in place between
the 13 southeastern states.
This agreement allows for an
expedited exchange of both
personnel and equipment for
wildfire suppression and
prevention.
Five of those personnel are
fiom the Jacksonville District
including two Forest Rangers,
who are operating tractor/plows
for initial attack on wildfires,
and two members of the Gold
Inter-Agency Incident
Management Team which was
sent to the Regional Fire
Coordinating Center in
Granbury, Texas. Jacksonville
has also sent one Line Safety
Officer to Oklahoma.
Resources sent Texas from
the Perry District include a
Dozer Boss, a mechanic, and
an Air Operations Branch
Director. The Suwannee
District sent three personnel to
Texas as Division Supervisors,
and as an Operations Section
Chief with the Gold Team.
The Division of Forestry has
also sent eight tractor/plow
units and one wildland engine.
These assignments will likely
last two weeks and more
resources can be sent as needed
due to the reduced fire activity
currently being experienced in
Florida and that fact that
precipitation across the state
has lowered our wildfire
danger.


Congratulations On A 9-Point

Gary David Pinner killed this nice 9-point buck December 28,
2005 on a recent hunting trip to Texas. He was hunting with Mitch
Mitchell on his property there. Gary David had a good time and

REVIVAL

Lydia Baptist Church

January 15-18 7:00 P.M. Nightly

with Carroll Roberson





From the little town of Ripley, Mississippi, the Lord has called
Carroll Roberson to minister to people all over the world Aher
being saved by the Lord s grace at the age of twenty-eight,
and after the Lord bringing him through a cancerous
operation on his throat one year later, Carroll went into
full-time ministry. After serving two years as a pastor, he
felt the Lord leading him into evangelism. Since 1987
Carroll has been preaching revivals, crusades, and
singing his music for our wonderful Savior to millions '
of people.
Carroll s music has opened numerous doors over \
the years for him to share Jesus Christ in word and '%, '
song. His music has brought him national and
international success, recording over 25 albums, and
writing over 100 songs. His music has become one of
the most listened to in Christian music today, even by
our beloved president, George W. Bush. His clear,
unique style ministers to a wide range of people from
young to old, and even foreign countries. One of his albums,
"His Hand In Mine," has sold over 100,000 copies. Even
though he has received numerous awards, and dozens of hit
songs, his first love is preaching God s word.
Carroll keeps the holy scriptures at the forefront of his ministry. He studies daily from a Hebraic
perspective and has helped countless people come to a richer understanding of God s word. He
feels his calling is to share the Bible with as many people as possible in this life. He and his wife,
Donna, lead tours to Israel on a regular basis, uncovering treasures from the life of Christ that have
changed many people s lives. His love for the Lord, and his years of study, have qualified Carroll
to be a servant, and spokesman of God s mercy and grace.
Carroll s life is evidence that God uses simple people, from ordinary backgrounds, for His
extraordinary work.
Carroll has two boys, Shane and Brandon. He and Donna attend Shady Grove Baptist Church
in Ripley, Mississippi, when they are not traveling on the road.
