The bottom picture shows the "standing room only" crowd that gathered at the Steinhatchee Community
Center to hear what their perspective Commissioners had to say.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
It was standing room only at the
Steinhatchee Community Center this past
Monday, February 6th as Commissioners from
both sides of the Steinhatchee River met to
discuss important issues facing Jena and
Steinhatchee residents alike. The meeting was
open to the public; but not open for public
discussion, as their time was limited. While no
solutions resulted, both commissions did
promise to work together-to solve issues that
hate resulted from rapid growth, with the
*omise of more to come.
Taylor County Commissioner Clay Bethea
started the meeting by- asking Earl Green of the
Steinhatchee Boat Ramp Committee to give a
brief report on his committees' findings. Green
suggested that a public hearing be set in order to
educate the public with their findings and to get
citizens input on the boat ramp issue. He noted
there was a lot of misinformation out there on
the ramp and the committee itself.
Green stated he felt that if the both counties
worked together, they may have a better chance
at getting grant monies to pay for the proposed
boat ramp. He also encouraged the
commissioners to hire a permitting consultant,
which they turned down.
Dixie Commissioners agreed there is a
problem with the lack of public boat ramps not
being available to the public, however they are
not ready to commit to a project at this time, as
they are working on getting funding to upgrade
an existing ramp on the Dixie side and to
acquire funding for a parking lot to
accommodate the ramp.
The majority of Taylor County
Commissioners were quick to note they were


not in favor of spending Taylor County-,
taxpayers' money on a boat ramp when there are,
water and sewer issues to address.
Commissioner Brown indicated that while he
was willing to work with the Dixie
Commissioners on the boat ramp issue, he
would be looking with "jaundiced eyes."
Commissioner Page agreed with Commissioner-
Brown.
Brown also noted he had received a number
of calls from residents who were .agaifistithe
proposed boat ramp being constructed ."ip
river". Dixie Commissioners noted the\ had
received some of the same calls. This will be
one of the many issues concerning ? the boat
ramp that will be addressed at a later date:
All the commissioners agreed that a -public
hearing needed to be scheduled. Once the date is
set, it will be published in the local papers; :In
the meantime, Dixie Commissioner Lamb asked
Green if he would look over the letters he has
received which voice concerns and questions
from Dixie's residents and have answers for
them at the meeting. Green agreed and noted he
too has had a number of letters and calls with
questions that need to be answered.
Engineer Frank Darabi was the next to speak
to the commissioners concerning a feasibility
study he had just completed for the Steinhatchee
Water Association for a new sewer plant.
Darabi stated that it would cost approximately
40 million for a sewer plant that would provide
service to residents on both sides of the river.
He also noted he felt that it would be more cost:
effective to have one

Jackie Thompson continues to heal from
bums she received when the home she was
living in exploded. The incident occurred
around 1:30 pm on Wednesday, February 1st,
2006 off 382 NE 209 Ave (Thompson Road) in
Old Town.
Rescue units from Old Town and Cross City
responded to the call and found Thompson out
by the road with bums to her face, hands, arms
and legs. Dixie EMS was on the scene and


prepared her for stat-flight to Shands UF in
Gainesville.
Thompson reported to officials that she had
gone to light some incense and the house
exploded. The bottom of the door had blown off
the back wall to the living room area.
The home, which was on stilts, was a total
loss. The State Fire Marshall was called to
investigate and as of press time did not have any


information to

release as to what caused the


Mobile Home
Collapses On
Homeowner
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Ray Webb of Old Town
was working in one of his
mobile homes when the roof
collapsed on him. Area
volunteer fire departments
responded to the crises and
were able to rescue Webb from
the debris, using extrication
equipment.
Webb's legs were pinned
under a portion of the fallen
roof. Dixie Emergency
Services personnel were also at
the scene and transported
Webb to an area where he
could be transferred to the stat-
flight helicopter.
The cause of the collapse
was most likely from the age
and condition of the trailer.
Webb was taken to Shands
UF where he was treated for
injuries sustained in the
collapse.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2006


Ihe cartoon controversy in perspective
The entire "Islamic world," it would seem, is in an uproar over
Pome cartoons that were published in a Danish newspaper. These
cartoons were intended as representations of the Muslim Prophet
ohamnmed. Some are comical or ,satirical, some aren't; but all
Isolate the Islamic law that prohibits drawing pictures of their
prophet.
" Bear in mind that we're talking about Islamic law, something
observed in countries where that is what defines government, as
Opposed to the civilized world.
The cartoons first appeared last September, at which time they
didn'tt create all that much of a stir; however some other European
newspaperss recently reprinted them, and now it would seem that
islam is on :the march, burning Danish flags and foreign
embassies, threateiiing Europeans from several countries in which
;he cartoons were reproduced and organizing demonstrations
demanding "death to the infidels." (That's us, presuming we don't
et on a prayer iug and face the east three times a day.)
All this has brought a mixed reaction from the governments of
.uropean and;, Middle Eastern nations. A Jordanian newspaper
published 3 of the :cartoons with the admonition that Muslims
should d "be reasonable," whereupon the editor was fired in the face
Pf threats from the Jordanian government.
In Paris, a French editor was fired after running the cartoons.
-owever, before noting,that such craven conduct is typical of the
:french, it should be noted that the paper is owned by an Egyptian,
reportedly a Coptic Christian, who was nonetheless unwilling to
'?isk offending ,the, Islamic community, either in France or back
:Lmome in Egypt.
Initially, the response in this country was little more than
Indifference, other than to report the violence. The "mainstream
Inedia" have often seemed fearful of appearing "insensitive" to the
vMuslim mobs behind it, with' commentators on talk radio and
'nternet bloggers quicker to putt matters in perspective. Mean-
,vhile, Bush administration has offered little more than a tepid
response.
; The extent and degree of violent behavior on the part of
Muslims calls into question the popular fantasy. that Islam is
basically a "religion of peace," and that the vast majority of its
adherenim are as non-.iolent as 19th century Quakers. If all it takes
o set off such an extensive degree of mob violence among the
followers of Mohammed is a few newspaper cartoons, then the
'civilized world is sitting on a powder keg.
Of course, we already knew that, at least those of us who have
been paying attention. Iran now has a lunatic by the name of
jMahmoud Ahmadifiejad in charge. American captives in the 1979
[ran hostage crisis insist that he is one of the thugs that overran the
WUS Embassy. In any .event, Ahmadinejad insists that the World
War II Nazi Holocaust.never happened, Israel should be wiped off
he map, and he will pursue the development of nuclear tech-
nology-for "peaceful purposes," of course....
Let's get real: If this guy gets the A-bomb, he will use it--on
'PIsrael, on US, or anyone else he doesn't like.
The Islamofascists detect a lack of resolve in the Western
world. They calculate the negative reporting on the Iraq war, the
pacifist movements and the cultural submission. They sense that
things are going their way-all of which encourages them to
pursue their agenda all more aggressively.
Either Europe and the United States wake up to the fact that the
Islamic mentality regards any accommodation--any hesitancy to
retaliate-as a sign of weakness, or our next generation could find
themselves being forced to learn Arabic and being taught from the
Koran.

Letter To The

Editor
Dear Friends,
I am the man that was
standing at the intersection of
US 19 & SR 349 last Tuesday
and Wednesday afternoons. I
was holding a sign which read,
" Please give to the families of
the children killed in Lake
Butler."
I know it is hard for some
people to trust someone who is
asking you to give them
money. But you all trusted me
and gave a total of $1,085.00
in just two short afternoons.
This money has already'
been sent to the Community
State Bank in Lake Butler,
which has a special fund set up
for the families of the seven
children killed.
Thank everyone who gave
and may God bless you.
Paul Lambert

.....c. Commission
Highlights
.." Z1 1A' J;4

SBy Terri Langford Staff Writer
^ The Dixie County.
S.. Commissioners held their first

February 2, 2006 at 10:00 AM
,. :... in the Commission Meeting
Room at the Courthouse. The
agenda included a Special
Meeting with the Town of Horseshoe Councilmembers, held prior
to the regular meeting, as well as reports from the various
department heads.
The Horseshoe Council and their attorney met with the
Commissioners to finalize the transference of 15 acre of property
located at the county's spoilage site from the County to the Town
of Horseshoe Beach.
The property is needed in order for Horseshoe to receive grant
monies for the construction of a new water plant. The property,
which will be used for spoilage when the water plant is built, could
also become an important asset if Horseshoe should be able to get
a grant for a much needed sewage plant as, well. The
Commissioners were all in agreement and wished the Council well
in their endeavors to help the folks in Dixie's small coastal
community.
The County's Building & Zoning Official, Jack Spivey
reported a total of 96 building permits issued for the month of
January 2006, with a total of $38,018.15 collected in fees. It was
noted that of those new permits, 5 were for new home construction
and 10 for mobile home setups.
Mr. Spivey also received direction from the Commissioners as
to enforcement of RV power pole permitting. After some
discussion, it was clarified that persons applying for an RV power
pole permit will have 6 months to have a well and septic tank put
in. If they don't, then the permit will expire. Once the well and
septic is put in, the land owner will be subject to paying the solid
waste fee of $180.00 each year.
The Commissioners approved a zoning change submitted by
Carolyn Morris which changed her property in Jena from
Residential Single Family/Mobile Home to Commercial
Neighborhood. The land is located in the same area as Casey's
Cove Subdivision.
Pamela Swanson came before the Board concerning problems
she and her neighbors are experiencing with 4-wheelers running
through county property that joins with her property, causing the
riders to use her property as an entry into the vacant land.
The land in question was purchased from the County through a
"buy-out" program with FEMA. The land is subject to flooding
aid'can not be used for building of any kind. The Commissioners
discussed several ways in which they will be able to help secure
the property from trespassers. For now, signs will be posted around
the property warning trespassers not to enter. The property will
most likely be fenced in the near future.
Jerry Martin, Deputy Chief of Emergency Services, also
presented his monthly report which noted a total of 276 patients
were transported by ambulance year to date 1,100. A total of
12,875 miles were traveled with 1,528.16 gallon of fuel used.
The non-emergency transport services assisted 36 residents in
January, logging on 1,338 miles for the month.
The next Board meeting will be held Thursday, February 16th at
6:00 PM. If you wish to be placed on the agenda you can contact
the Clerk of Courts Office at 498-1200.

system and suggested that
Taylor County set up a Utility
Authority Board and sell the
service to Dixie County.
Commissioners from Dixie,
disagreed and stated they
would have to have Dixie
representation on any board
formed. Commissioner Lamb
noted the state already had a
statute that deals with
situations like the
Steinhatchee/Jena one where
two counties can both serve on
a joint board, called the
"DUA" (Dual Utility
Authorities).
Darabi feels that a grant for
50-60 percent of the cost could
be obtained. He also
mentioned that a developer in
the area was willing to put up
"seed money".
Rates would be comparable
to other systems and range
between $45-$55 a month.
The first phase of the
proposed plan would provide
service to residents on the river
banks first and cost around. 12
million.
Dixie Commissioner
Valentine stated he wanted to
be able to review the study
Darabi did before making any
decisions or judgments on the
project. Other, commissioners
agreed.
Darabi did emphasize the
importance of organization and
making the sewer issue a
priority. "It is important that
you go ahead with this plan in
order to protect the
environment," stated Darabi.
With all that said, a
committee which includes
Dixie Commissioner James
Valentine, Taylor
Commissioner Clay Bethea,
both Dixie and Taylor County
Coordinators, Board of
Director from the Steinhatchee
Water Board and both counties
lawyers will be setting up a
workshop/meeting time. That
meeting date will be published
in the Advocate once it has
been set.
An agreement on Interlocal
fire and ambulance service was
not discussed due to time
restraints and will be handled
at a different time.
The general feeling that
came out of the meeting
between the two government


agencies was that they both
recognize the problems facing
theircommunities and are both
willing to work together
towards solutions.

BOYD FIGHTS
FOR OUR FARMERS
Administration's budget slashes funding for nation's farmers
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) today criticized
the Administration's 2007 budget for the proposed cuts to our
nation's farmers. The President's budget asks for $75.4 billion in
mandatory agriculture spending, down from $81.8 billion in fiscal
year 2006, and $16.3 billion in total discretionary spending,
$717.3 million below last year.
The Administration's budget proposal reduces funding for
farm subsidies by 5 percent over the next decade while also
reducing the cap on farm payments by 31 percent.
"Americans deserves a fiscally responsible budget that does
not shortchange our agricultural community, and this budget is
not it," said Congressman Boyd. "As a farmer myself, I
understand the critical role the federal government plays by
giving agricultural producers a real safety net. I will work with
my colleagues in Congress to fight any attempt to cut payments to
our farmers and to reject the Administration's proposals."
The President's budget also calls for a 20 percent reduction
in agricultural conservation programs, including a 50 percent cut
in watershed rehabilitation funding. If these reductions were
enacted by Congress, the dairy and poultry project in the
Suwannee River basin and other federally-funded Suwannee
River clean-up efforts would not exist.
"By getting rid of projects that directly help our farmers, the
Administration's budget shows no commitment to the needs of
our agricultural community," Boyd stated. "Vital to the state's
economy, agriculture is a $62 billion industry in Florida,
illustrating the importance of our agriculture producers. Please
know that I will continue to provide North Florida's farmers with
the voice in Washington they need in order to prosper and remain
competitive."

Word MadeFl

Flesh


God's Sabbath
Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say one of the greatest
features of thi Feast of
Tabernacles, the 7th day of God,-is
a glorious revival of the
understanding of the Bible. Truth
shall flow like a river. No longer
an obscure book of many
interpretations, but now a fountain
of life and truth. Glory to God!
Ezra and Jesus both stood up to
read the Word of God. Ezra did it
on the 7"' month, Jesus on the 79
day. Both speaking of that
glorious age of healing! Even
today God's people are coming out
of Babylon and coming into a
deeper understanding of truth.
Those who still dwell behind
Babylon's walls, in an organized,
ecclesiastical system of
denominational religion, are still
blinded too much of what God is
revealing for them these days. I,
the son of man, say they still cling
to the dogmas and fantasies and
fairy tales that were born in the
imaginations of men, and carried
on by official decree. If this word
sounds hard, it is because I am
thrusting the sword of the Lord
right into the heart of Babylon's
strength. It is the power that had
divided God's precious people for
Hundreds of years. But, its power
is waning, and soon the walls shall
crumble like dust and the city shall
be burnt with fire! That's what
God savyLabout it. Let us go to
Mark 2:23. We see Jesus and a s
disciples going through the
cornfields on the Sabbath day.
"...and his disciples began, as they
Sent to pluck'the ears of corn."
Glory to God, it is harvest time ont
y the 7 day and they are plucking
Sthe corn. How do I know it was,
the time of harvest? Well, they
weren't pulling up the seeds and
eating them or chewing on the
blades or stalks. The ears of corn
' were ripened, and they began to
eat. The harvest was ripe. The
many-membered son is now going
into the harvest fields on the 7
day. I know that traditional
* theology' tells us that there will be
harvest of souls, no revival in the
church during the 1,000 year day.
But, I want you to know that on
this 7 thday, the harvest is ripe and
the son is entering the fields now.
Of. course the Pharisees
complained about this reaping on
-, the Sabbath. It is not lawful
according to their teaching. I, the
son of man, say according to
modern Pharisees, there is to be no
reaping of the harvest on the 7"'
day. But God will do it His way.
Thank God for this, 1,000 year
Day of Rest. We can now cease
from our own labors, just rest in
Him, speaking the word of
authority and seeing a harvest such
as we have never seen before.
. Notice that the disciples were
plucking the ears one at a time. I
believe there is a "one on one"
Revival as men win other men to
Christ by their life and testimony.
Continued next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
Although the weather was a little nippy, Sunday was a great
time to be in the Lord's house. Our choir, accompanied by our
own able musicians, Leamon and Diana and, as an added treat,
Bro. Donnie Lott on the banjo, sang to a full house. We were also
blessed by special songs from two groups, Aimee and April, and a
quartet comprised of Kimbo, Gene, Frankie, and Bro. Donnie, all
of whom did excellent jobs. Bro. Donnie, standing in for Bro.
Billy, then brought a heart-stirring message from God's Word,
choosing his text from 1st John 5:14- 15. We invite you to come
and share in these special times of worship with us!
Our monthly Business Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday
evening, Feb. 8th, and don't forget the Valentine Banquet at 6:30 P.
M. on Friday, Feb. 10th. On Sunday, Feb. 12th, there will be a
house-warming at 2:00 P. M. for Dwayne and April Kight. On1
Monday, Feb. 13th, our Ladies' Ministry will hold their monthly
meeting, and we will have our monthly Fellowship Supper on
Wednesday evening, Feb. 15th.
Please be in prayer for Bro. Billy, who is still "under the
weather" from a bout with pneumonia...we are looking forward to
his recovery and return soon! We also urge you to pray for all
those on the church prayer lists, the people in our armed forces,
and our nation's leaders. Have a good week, invite somebody to
church with you, and may God bless you.

Card of Thanks
The family of Larry Ridaught would like to thank all the
friends in the Tri-County area for their many acts of kindness
during the illness and death of our loved one. Your prayers
sustained us through this time in our lives. To those who bought
food, it was very much appreciated. Thank you, Rev. Mike Brown
and The First Baptist Church of Cross City, for your prayers and
the meal prepared for our family. Your kindness and generosity
will always be appreciated.
Please continue to pray for us as we move through this difficult
time in our lives. Thank you!
The Family of Larry Ridaught

In Loving Memory of
Barbara C. Smith
In loving memory of Barbara C. Smith who went to be with
The Lord Feb. 11, 2004...To know her was to love her, and the
sweetness of her memory time can neither dim nor end.
We miss you Barbi when the sun comes up and we miss you
when the dark appears. We miss the love we shared together so
sweet and yet so true. But most of all my dearest we miss you.
In our hearts your memory lingers sweet and true. There is not
a day dear Barbi that we don't think of you.
You are always loved by your husband and children.

Faith Baptist Church News
Each Sunday at Faith is more wonderful than the one before.
We continue to have lots of visitors, folks continue to join our
church family and the love and harmony is just better and better.
Bro. Jackie did his usual great job in the pulpit today, Bro. Jim
Fisher did the special music service and what a splendid job he did.
It was a very special day dedicated to Christopher Thomas'
memory. His grandmother, Chris Lord, put a very gorgeous floral
arrangement in the church in his memory: sister Alice Bryan read a
very special poem about Christopher's first year in Heaven and it
was just such a blessing. The choir sang a special song in his
memory "Jesus Hold My Hand". In the evening service the
Britton's sang and they also did a wonderful job. We just have so
much to be thankful for at the' Faith. The church is growing in
leaps and bounds and \'e in ite 'ou'to come be a part of it if you
don't have a church home. If you're just visiting or passing
through, stop in and worship with us. The love and harmony here
is phenomenal.
Bro. Buddy Britton had his first Bible study class and we had
15 people there. We are looking for even more next time. Bro.
Buddy has lots of knowledge of the Bible and we're all looking
forward to him sharing it with us. If you missed it, come out at
6:00 p.m. next week and join in with us.
Last Thursday night all the ladies met at Sis.. Janet Osteen's
home for the Women's Missionary monthly meeting. We had a
fabulous time with the excellent food and crafts we did. It was just
a wonderful time. We started our Secret.Sisters (or Secret Pals
whichever you prefer to call it) again and we had a great turnout,
lots of enthusiasm and a really fun time. If you missed this one, we
invite you to come to the next one.
Remember this week to pray for the sick in and around our
community, the bereaved families, and the ones less fortunate than
us and especially the lost. Invite a friend or loved one to come to
church with you next week and let's see if we can reach some of
the lost around us. God will bless you for it. Wednesday night is
our regular business meeting and as a member of Faith, it's our
responsibility to attend and take care of God's business. We'll see
you there. We at Faith love you!!!!
Empty pockets never
held anyone back. Only
empty heads and empty
hearts can do that.

Abundant Life & Living
By Lucille Stockton
Sometime we become
overwhelmed with life's
challenges. We begin to question "
why did god let this or that
happen to me. Many of us are
blessed and living abundant life, if
we didn't experience some valleys
we would forget God delivered us
and gave us freedom to live on the
mountains in abundant living. Sad
to say but the natural human mind
is so easy to forget good things. It
will remember bad things most of the time forever and never
forgive even if it was done to us by mistake. Jesus taught his
disciples to pray: forgive us our debts as we forgive our
debtors. If we don't forgive, we are not free to ask god to
forgive us. Every challenge we experience makes us more
informed and better people. Count your blessings, they always
outweigh the challenges that come in life. Buy yourself a
journal and write down all the good things that happen to you,
count all the challenges you encounter and I assure you the
good will out number the bad every time. Whatever comes into
our life, know if you are alive and well you have a chance to fix
it and most times it is done better.

"Love Life & Live It"
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
The day of the Lord. The day is not I a 24-hour day, but a people
God's army. This people is not in a place of doing any more. They have
become. You can't do and become at the same time. You will havelo
move out, into the realm of becoming and not doing. God is bring a people
that are the rest of God, the peace of God, the joy of God the life of God,
the very day of God, because God calls the light day. Gen. 1:5 And God
called the light Day.
Now the process of becoming has within it also the hour of revelation,
of their identify. Psalms 90:12 So teaches to number our days, that we
may apply our hearts unto wisdom. They must know their identity. They
have been saying for a long time, "Thy will be done,O God".They did not
know what he was doing They were not told what he was doing. You
know most people are not looking for God to bring a company of people
forth on this earth to be the life and light of God. So they spend their time
just doing their program. But the Sprit has been saying "Thy will be
done." God is not at the time letting the world know who this people is,
He is having a hard enough time getting them to realize their identity. But
he is telling them who they are and thy are numbering their days and
applying thy hearts unto wisdom. I say unto you John the Baptist
numbered his days, apply his heart unto wisdom, and knew that he was the
messenger preparing the way of the Lord in the wilderness. Jesus Christ
also numbered his days and applied his heart. Unto wisdom and knew his
identity and that he was the very Christ.
God is doing this to this people so that they will yield to him and he
will be able to complete his purpose in them.
This people will need to know who they really are, as John and Jesus
knew who they were. So the Spirit is letting them know of their identity in
God. Ephesians 5:8. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light
in the Lord: Walk as Children of the light. This people is becoming light
itself. Genesis 1:5 And God called the light day.
Ephesians 5:8 The word children means born one. Now, if you are
bom of light then your nature is light. Nature speaks of the essence of the
thing. The word essence is that which makes something what it is. And
when your nature is a nature of light the very essence of your being is
light. Continued.

Buddy Martin's
Making Super Bowl Propositions

Gambling shouldn't be taken frivolously, because it has often
been poison to the integrity of sports. We should never
forget the evil temptations which it fosters. Or the
sordid past of scandals like the 1918 Black Sox, as ...
well as college basketball and football point-shaving
incidents.
Having said that, last Sunday was Gambler's '
Holiday the Super Bowl. In the state of Nevada,
alone, something like $100 million will be wagered
this week.
Lots of us like a little action on The Big Game.
Hey, I've even had a couple of squares in the
office pool, myself, and though I've had it re-
explained to me every year, I'm still not sure how
works. Apparently if any quarter ends with either team having a
"4" or a "7" in their scores, I win something. Maybe a toaster. (I
didn't win anything)
So here were the bets and predictions that I made:
My Super Bowl pick was Pittsburgh, 34-27, meaning I
obviously liked the Steelers to cover the 4-point spread and favor
the over (it was 47]J and I was wrong). But I don't have enough
conviction to make any Las Vegas or online wagers on it.
However, if I were going to bet, it would be on the so-called
"Prop Bets."
Many people don't understand the complication of point
spreads. So "Prop Bets" can be a good party game today for those
gathering to view Super Bowl XL. Basically, you can make up
your own.
The best way to explain "Prop Bets" is this: Years ago when a
group of us from Denver covering the NBA playoffs in Los
Angeles went to Dodger Stadium to sit in the stands for a baseball
game, we all brought a fistful of dollar bills. We could gamble a
buck on anything. If the batter was going to foul off a pitch.
Whether the pitcher would throw to first. If the baserunner would
steal. Whether the pitching coach or manager would be first out to
talk to the pitcher. Dumb stuff like that.
Nobody probably lost more than $10 and it made the evening
more interesting
Vegas has a whole list of exotic bets. And probably the biggest
reason for their popularity is that no special knowledge is needed -
they're out and out luck,
So I'm took out $10,000 from a Mythical Bank Account and
here is a list of some of my favorite "Prop Bets" that I made,
including a few I made up.
(You do the math on how I came out.)
Coin Flip: Tails. I'm going against the odds, because 31 of the
last 34 have been heads. Wager: $1,000.
Which Team Will Lead at Halftime: Pittsburgh. Wager: $500
What Player Scores the First Touchdown: Hines Ward,
Pittsburgh, on a double reverse. Wager: $200.
First Tumover:,Shaun Alexander, Seattle, who will fumble after
being hit by an angry Joey Porter. Wager: $300.
Will The Team That Scores First Win? Yes. Wager: $300
Will There Be A Two-Point Conversion? Yes. Wager: $100.


DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2006


The First Scoring Play. A field goal. Wager: $500.

Ouick Jump Starts
1. What we're missing for the NFL Post Season is snow and
they didn't have it in Detroit, either.
2. Not to rain on their parade, but. the election of Harry
Carson and John Madden into the Pro Football Hall of Fame
Saturday could be called a reach.
3. Call me a romantic, but I was sure that Lance Armstrong
and Sheryl Crow were going to make it.
4. Best assistant coach hire of the year might have been
Atlanta quarterbacks Coach Bill Musgrave, a brainy ex-NFL
veteran who might get Michael Vick back on track.
5. 1 don't normally put stock in such projections, but
apparently wide receiver Percy Harvin of the Florida Gator
football recruiting class is all that's been advertised.
Short Stuff

Today's Proverb
A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are

FWC Adds To Shark Prohibited List
Several species of sharks will receive better protection under
rules approved Thursday by the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
The Commission designated 13 shark species as "prohibited
species," which will help reduce fishing mortality on certain sharks
believed to be rare or in need of further protection. The
Commission acted to reduce fishing mortality on these sharks to
rebuild the spawning stock and prevent these important resources
from becoming endangered.
The new rule also will make Florida's shark rules more
consistent with existing federal regulations.
Old FWC rules include a "protected species" list of nine
sharks, rays and sawfishes. This designation protects these species
by prohibiting their harvest, landing, possession, purchase or sale
due to concerns about their vulnerability to depletion.
New FWC rules renamed this list "prohibited species," and


added 13 species: Atlantic angel shark, bigeye sixgill shark,
bigeye thresher shark, bignose shark, Caribbean reef shark, dusky
shark, Galapagos shark, longfin mako shark, narrowtooth shark,
night shark, sevengill shark, sixgill shark, and smalltail shark.
These shark rule amendments take effect in March.

FWC Creates More Family
Hunting Opportunities

Families will have more opportunities to hunt together on
public lands under a rule passed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) in Gainesville Wednesday.
Four additional wildlife management areas have added "family
hunts" to their list of hunting opportunities for next season. Those
areas are Andrews and Devil's Hammock, both in Levy County, in
the North Central Region; Dinner Island Ranch, in Hendry County,
in the South Region; and Lafayette Creek, a new area in Walton
County, in the Northwest Region.
The family hunt format is a weekend hunt, intended to provide
mentoring adults and youths with exclusive opportunities to hunt
together on public lands.. One adult and up to two youths can take
part in these opportunities by obtaining a no-cost family quota hunt
permit.
To participate, youths must be between the ages of 8 and 15,
and adults must be over 18 years old. Youths must hunt under the
supervision of the adult, and adults may only hunt in the presence
of at least one youth.
There will be a total of five wildlife management areas offering
family hunts next season, including Matanzas, in St. Johns County,
in the Northeast Region, which ran the successful pilot program
last year.
"The Commission recognizes the importance of passing down
the hunting tradition," quota hunt coordinator. Eddie White said.
"We are making a concerted effort to expand and maximize these
opportunities across the state."
To apply for these family hunts, interested parties must submit
applications June 20 July 7 at any license agent, county tax
collector's office, or online at MyFWC.com/license. Family quota
hunt permit worksheets will be available in early June at
MyFWC.com/hunting.

FWC Extends Hunting Days With
Adoption of Crossbow Season
A crossbow-hunting season for private lands is in the works for,
2006-07. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) adopted new rules to establish the new hunting season"
during its meeting Wednesday in Gainesville.
The new season will provide additional hunting opportunities
for crossbow hunters. It will also lengthen the overall hunting
season and extend the number of days conventional bowhunters
can use bows to take game, since bows will be legal during
crossbow season.
The added season is limited to private lands and restricts'
harvest to bucks only. These changes will not affect the wildlife
management area system. "
Rule changes also provide that bows and crossbows will be
legal during muzzleloading gun season and during the Northwest
Hunting Zone's special archery/muzzleloading season, beginning
next year.
"We wanted to create more opportunities for hunters who use
crossbows but strived to balance that with the interests of avid
bowhunters," said Nick Wiley, director of FWC's Division of
Hunting and Game Management. "The change gives private-
landowners more options for managing game on their property and
provides additional early-season hunting opportunities."
Beginning in October, there will be a five-day crossbow season'"
between the existing archery season and muzzleloading gun season -
in the Central and South hunting zones. In the Northwest Zone,
the crossbow season will be seven days long and will open the"
Monday following Thanksgiving.
During the new crossbow season, legal game will include deer,-
hog, bearded turkey, gray squirrel, quail, rabbit, raccoon, opossum,
coyote, nutria, skunk and beaver. However, turkeys will not be'.
legal game in Holmes County during any fall or winter hunting"
season.
As during the muzzleloading gun season, only bucks with at
least one antler five inches or more in length may be taken during
the crossbow season. The daily bag limit for antlered deer is two-.*.
during the crossbow and muzzleloading gun seasons.
During both periods, only hunters who hold antlerless deer'.*
permits may take antlerless deer. Regardless of the season or.:
number of permits, the bag limit will be two deer per day.
For more information about the new crossbow season,x
interested hunters can call Tony Young at (850) 488-7867 or visit.:
MyFWC.com/commission.

Then, along about 1862, when he was 15, he was working in
the freight car when he glanced out the window one day and saw a
,little boy lying down on the tracks. Al knew it was about time for
a scheduled train to arrive as it did every day except that child
was right in its path. He looked down the tracks and sure enough,
the train was barreling into the yard.. He jumped out of the freight
car, ran out across the tracks, and picked up the little one a split
second before that train would have killed him.
Turns out that the little boy was the son of the Grand Trunk
station agent. The agent saw the whole thing and was so grateful
that he taught the young hero how to operate a telegraph a highly
prized skill in those days. He became one of the best telegraphers
in America, working as far south as Georgia and all the way up to
Canadha.- But even more important, it got him interested in new
technology. You see, It's a Little Known Fact that if he hadn't
rescued the train agent's child from the path of an oncoming train.
Thomas Edison might never have pursued his career as an
inventor.

DID YOU KNOW?
Every year about 1 billion cards are sent to friends and family
on Valentine's Day. But just who is this patron saint of love?
Though myths and legends about him abound, here's one we find
particularly romantic. In the third century A.D., the Roman
Emperor Claudius II found that married men were often unwilling
to leave their wives and children to serve in the military. To fill his
dwindling army, the ruthless ruler outlawed marriage for young
men. Valentine, a priest in Rome, defied Claudius and performed
marriages for young lovers in secret. When his actions were
discovered, he was put to death on the 14th of February. (Woman's
Day)
Penile enhancements may soon rival boob jobs as a popular
cosmetic procedure. A new treatment developed by urologists in
Serbia and Montenegro is said to be safer and more successful than-
current techniques. The new procedure, tested on 84 men so far,
removes skin cells from the scrotum and artificially grows them,
molding them into the correct shape. The penis is "de-gloved" and
the new tissue is transplanted onto it, giving it extra girth. (The
National Enquirer)
Mom was right: ginger really does treat nausea brought on by
an upset tummy. It many also prevent the queasiness caused by
radiation and chemotherapy and even relieve some forms of
arthritis. Researcher Suzanna Zick of the University of Michigan
Health System said ginger especially fresh root -- contains a
powerful antioxidant called gingerol that neutralizes elements in
the stomach that cause nausea. (The National Enquirer)
Decaffeinated coffee may increase the risk of cardiovascular
disease more than regular coffee. In a study funded by the National
Institutes of Health, Dr. Robert Superko found that people who
drank decaf had higher levels of LDL -- the bad cholesterol than
those who drank high-test java or those who drank no coffee at all.
The test subjects drank three to six cups of coffee a day. "The dose
is an important issue," Superko says. "People should not freak out
if they drink one or two cups a day." The study counters previous
findings, which indicated that caffeine was a culprit in poor heart
health. (Sun)
A nightly scalp massage can help women with thinning hair
keep their luxurious locks longer. The physical stimulation lowers
levels of cortisol, a body chemical associated with hair loss, and if
you massage with a blend of lavender, rosemary, cedar and thyme
oils, the therapy works even better. "All four oils act as antiseptics
to fight the bacteria and yeast overgrowths that can cause hair
loss," says Dr. Carolyn Dean. (Sun)
A solar powered purse can recharge your cell phone and other
carry around electronics for free, and experts believe the
technology could one day provide energy for your entire house.
The Solarjo Power Purse is sew together from light-sensitive
panels that convert the sun's rays into electricity. Inside the bag,
cables hook up to your cell phone, compact disc player and other
gizmos. The stylish accessory is about to hit the market, aimed at
environmentally conscious consumers, but technology experts
believe the concept may have wider applications. "If you can make
a purse out of these panels, why can't you make siding for an entire
house?" asks electrical engineer Melody Marks. "Used in this way,
the panels would be able to power large appliances, reducing your
energy bill to a fraction of what it is today." (Sun)
The majority of Americans like to bed down with their pets,
according to a survey by Sealy mattresses. They found that 67
percent of people polled like to sleep %% ith their cats and dogs and a
lot of them preferred dozing with their animals rather than their
regular bed partners. Thirty-eight percent said their kitties and pups
disturbed their sleep time, while 55 percent of women complained
that their men are more likely to take up most of the space at night.'
Fourteen percent of the men didn't know which was more likely to
keep them awake their woman or their pet. (National Examiner)

Sam and Nancy were like a lot of other couples in Port Huron,
Michigan in the mid-1800s. They weren't rich and they weren't
poor. Sam started out as a carpenter and over time became the
owner of a lumber business. They were able to feed their seven
kids, and always made sure the children went to school. Well,
except for the baby of the family, that is.
The youngest of their seven was little Al. The family called
him Al. He just didn't seem to be as bright as his brothers and
sisters. He had a hearing problem, which kept him from
understanding everything his teachers said, and sometimes he just
didn't go to school at all. His father actually said on several
occasions, "That boy just doesn't have it. He's stupid, and Nancy
and I just have to face that fact."
Well, Sam might have faced it, but Nancy wasn't going to.
When Al was 10 years old, between the poor grades and the
constant fighting with the other children, his mother decided to
pull him out of school and teach him herself. She loved books and
gave him lots of them to read. After a while the boy got interested
in books about chemistry, and his mother let him set up a little lab
right there at home. But he made such a mess of it that Mom made
him move the lab to the basement.
A couple of years further along, when the boy was 12, he got a
job selling papers along the Grand Trunk railway, right there in his
hometown. But instead of money, he asked the railroad if he could
use an old abandoned freight car for a laboratory, a decision that
Didn't sit well with his father, and only served as further proof that
the boy would never amount to anything at all. But Al was happy.
He even got hold of an old printing press and, all by himself,
started a little weekly newspaper he called the Grand Trunk
Herald. He spent a lot of time in that old freight car with his
chemistry experiments on one side and his printing press on the
other.

The Back To Yesterday Antiques & Collectibles shop is nestled in the heart of Cross City, 5
blocks off US 19 on the Horseshoe Beach Road (351 South) and is one of Dixie's older landmarks.
Built in the 1940's by the Thompson family, it was one of the few grocery stores in town. Fred
Toney would later buy the country-style store and kept it open until he retired in the late 1980's.
John Rollison, a lifetime resident of Dixie County, purchased the property in 1995 and used it to
store his vast collection of antiques. John has been an employee at Griner's Chevrolet, now Dixie
Chevrolet, for over thirty-years. John retired from the auto dealership several years ago and had
grand plans for his long awaited "days off" before being asked back. He wanted to continue his
hobby of collecting collectibles.
Over the years John has acquired an unbelievable amount of antiques including china,
Depression glass, Fireking, Hull & Fenton, and kitchen glassware from the depression era. John has
also collected a number of furniture items including bedroom and living room suites, dinning room
furniture and a treasured Hoosier cabinet as well as a large section of beautiful vintage linens,
including crocket, embroidery, chenille bedspreads, and more! For the primitive collector, John has a;
number of antique farm implements, tools, and churns. He even has an old wringer-washer.
With a lot of encouragement, John decided to let go of some of his treasures for other treasurer
hunters to enjoy. At first he held a weekly Yard Sale at the shop on weekends. As word spread about
:the shop, John was asked to extend his hours. With the help of his sister, Mary he began opening the .,
store Fridays' from 10-5 and Saturday from 10-2.
As you stroll through the building you automatically step back into time. John said that it is.
common for folks to begin browsing and exclaim, "I remember we had one of these!" or "My
grandmother used one of these!" It is that kind of reaction that John says makes opening the store,
worthwhile.
Stop by for a visit soon to the Back To Yesterday Antiques & Collectibles and take a walk dox\ n
memory lane, back to yesterday.

SAnd Mama, I say one for you.
I know that you're still hurting
And would love to
hold me tight
SAnd sing our favorite songs
S And rock me through
the night.
.Remember all my laughing
:You heard that final night.
.I knew that God was
,, preparing me
,,.To. take my Heavenly flight.
But Mama, if you could see me
,. I'm standing oh so tall
I don't even have my
feeding tube
God healed me for it all.
I thank God every day
S"That-he chose you for me
S He knew I needed
-- .. someone special
To take care of my needs.
And Mama, I want
: to
thank you
SYouw worked so hard each day
.: To make my life complete
In every single way.
Now tell. my Papa and Nana
And Uncle Jeremy, too

Local Talent Take The Main Stage
During the first ever, BMS Music festival at Bronson Motor
Speedway from Feb. 15-19. An extravaganza of local
entertainment will take the stage. From young 13 year old
Keagon Nolan to the legendary Bo Diddle. Our tri-county area
is bursting with both talent and excitement.
Keagan Nolan of Williston,. originally from Fairfeild,
Vermont, Young Keagon has made a place for herself in the
world of entertainment. Having recently released her first CD
titled, "Faded Love", Keagan will join us during her school
break. Her list of influences includes some country music greats
such as Patsy Kline, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Shania
Twain, Tim McGraw and Dolly Parton. We sure this will be a
great addition to our show.
Matt Wilkerson, of DeBary, Florida will be playing at the
BMS Festival on Sunday Feb. 19. Matt is the son of Leon and
Carrie Wilkerson and Frandson of the late Mr. & Mrs. C.C.
Wilkerson of Trenton. Matt has been entertaining throughout
Central Florida in area restaurants, civic events, festivals and the
Volusia County Fair. He is looking forward to pursuing a
country music career.
Anna White and the Clam Jamm of Cedar Key & with ties to
the Trenton area. The Clam Jamm Band is a local Cedar Key
band that believes in their community. They have written songs
that embrace the Cedar Key way of life. They are now in town
polishing up on their set list in preparation for the recording of
their debut CD. Ms. Anna White Singer/Song writer and plays
the guitar, originally from Gainesville, has found a warm in her
heart for the tri-county area and especially the Cedar Key
family. Anna, along with Ben and Dan Bainbridge (twin
brother) and their newest addition Travis Parks, have grown
their own style commonly called, "Saw Grass" due to their
unique styling and genre of music. It's easy to see why the
"Clam Jammers" are an area favorite!
Jim Partington, aka "Donovan the Magician" of. Williston,
will offer up his tremendously entertaining Comedy Magic.
Now in his seventies, he continues to mystify audiences through
out the country and has performed along side of the great Harry
Blackstone, was the first musician to ever perform at the Hoosier
and has been a crowd favorite with several of the largest
corporate events in the country. Over 40 years of success in the
entertainment business and as a magician makes him a "must see
act."
Rearview Mirror; Williston, a local group of weekend
worriers sort of speaking, this area band is made up of
professionals in finance, real estate and the insurance business.
The have been together for about 7 years and will make their
Bronson area debut.
Bo Diddley & his prot6g6e band "Monkeez Strikin Matchez"
of the Bronson Area will also grace the stage for the first time in
our small town. Bo Diddley is recognized as one of the first and
most influential rock guitarist and musicians. In 1987 he was
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Diddley's success
heralded the beginning of the rock 'n roll craze. Bo will perform
many of his old time favorites and tantalize your senses with
some of his "new kid" style. Entertaining for both young and
old music lovers.
The Festival will begin on Wednesday, Feb 15 and run
through Sunday night hosting five days of bluegrass, gospel,
blues, rock & roll and country. In addition to these local greats,

spot a crime being committed and report it to the dispatcher. We also help at wrecks, fires, parades,
or anywhere the local law enforcement officers may need extra help.

a few donations to help with expenses from time to time.
If you need additional information, please call me, John T. Henry, at 542-8156.
If you would like to donate to the organization, please mail your donation to PO Box 284, Old

cause.

Your'walk in the garden in February may vary from freezing, windy
days: to' those 80 degree Spring Fever feelings that say "Plant! Plant!
Plarit!"'Don't let your guard down, because frosty nights are common,
ever into early March.
February.is a good time to apply lime, dolomite, fertilizers, pesticides
and :especially pre-emergent herbicides. Remember to NOT plant
seedlings- and young plants in an area. where you recently applied
hydrated :(HOT) lime. Hot. lime demands respect and requires some
precautions, to protect your eyes, skin and lungs.
If February finds you in the planning stage of landscaping your yard,
here are a few helpful hints to making your experience more enjoyable:
1 TIME FACTOR How much time can you dedicated to your
project?.If you found out .our "dream" turned out too time consuming,
break, iiito various stages. Better to make it FUN and not a CHORE.
2. BUDGET If you original plan has stretched your pocketbook;
thinklabopt short term goals with finalizing when funds allow. Buying
fully mature trees and shrubs or that "instant" landscape may raise the
cost beyond reach. Think about younger trees and shrubs that.will not
only cut your cost, but may bring many smiles and added enjoyment to
watch them develop.
3. DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY Check for project books and
internetfplans that actually list the level of physical difficulty required.
Think about your personal limitations and health; friends that may
lighten your burden; renting power tools to do some of the heavy stuff.
4. PLANT REPLACEMENT & SELECTION We all have our
favorite flowers, and shrubs, but they will not grow just anywhere. You
need to consider the amount of sun, shade, soil, water, drainage and
climate zone requirements. This phase may mean some research on your
part. State and regional books, the internet (green.beam.com), and
trained horticultural experts are all good resources, so you don't waste
time and money.
At the very least take a walk in a garden in February. Take a deep
breath and enjoy God's creations. Spring is in the air!

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, February 2nd at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. What a day we all had going through boxes
and bags of scraps. Patricia brought in so much wonderful fabric
*her mother had which will make many quilts. Carl Rolling, who
lives in Winter Haven, brought in boxes and bags for curtain and
upholstery fabric that we make tacked comforters out of. Carl has
been doing this for 5 years and he is on Interior Decorates and the
leftovers he donates to us. Many crafts are made out of donations
that are brought in and this gives us time to make for the Quilt
Show in December.
Time is getting shorter for our trip to Tampa to see if we have a
ribbon on the quilts and crafts. We do have a few spaces on the
bus. The cost is $19.00 and you get in free. We leave Old Town at
6:30 AM, Chiefland at 7:00 AM, and Williston at 7:30 AM. We
stop at Wildwood for breakfast and arrive about 11:00 AM. We
leave at 4:30 PM, tired and ready to come home. Call 493-2801 if
you are looking for a fun day.
Lunch was so good with greens and combread, cheese and
mac, broccoli salad, corn pudding, garlic pasta, slaw, and the
dessert table was full of too many goodies! 23 members and 5
guests were present. W. Horne

and his staff. Part of the Clerks job is
the financial arm of the Board of
County Commissioners and could be
at odds. Mr. Allen has always
worked with the BCC to keep a good
relationship. Hopefully, the next
clerk will do the same. You will be
sorely missed."
Commissioner Valentine
commented, "Joe Hubert, you helped
me always. Dixie County will miss
you and this Board will too!"
"I was not at the last meeting, but
was on county business miles away,"
commented Commissioner Lamb. "I
have been with Commissioners all
over the. State and I hear their
problems. But, Hubert's love for this
county is' probably the reason these
problems are not here. We will miss
you. You are a reflection of a good
family."
Commissioner, Hays stated, "Mr.'
Allen is a friend and has been an
extreme help since I have been on this
Board. Professionalism has always
been shown by him and his staff."
Mr. Joe Hubert Allen was
applauded by the Commissioners and
everyone in the meeting; everyone
standing in his honor.
'Commissioner Driggers stated on a
happier note he would like to
announce the births of two
grandbabies born to Deputy Clerk,
Carla Downing this month; Carly
Ann Caines born December. 6"' and
Jackson William Chavous born
December 14!'.
Chairman Driggers also had a
grand-daughter born this month.
Commissioner Land spoke
favorably of Mr. Allen. He stated,
"Hubert is always cool and. calm.
There have been times when we
Commissioners have been sweating
bullets and ole Hubert is just as calm
as can be."
Jack Spivey, Building Inspector.
stated that he has enjoyed the
working relationship with Joe Hubert.
He and his office staff are great. I've
had personal instances that he has
been a real help!"

ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR
Arthur Bellot presented a copy of a
letter addressed to Mr. Frank Darabi
from Talmadge Bennett, Horseshoe
Beach Councilman regarding the
Proposed CRA and the property
request of 15 acres from the County.
The letter proposes that "the
Horseshoe Beach Town Councl
S(HBTC) will accept the County's
Softer to defer the first CRA payment
Jbr one year Y(until January of 2007).
In addition, the HBTC will defer the


2007 payment fiom January I' to
March 1"' of 2007, which will enable
the County to collect almost all its
advalorem tax revenue prior to
paying the CRA assessment.... The
HBTC has approved returning 2.6
mils to the county for the EMS MSTU.
This would reduce the net payment to
the Town to 10 mils, which would be
a net amount. of $S118,884 payable
March 1"', 2007... It should be
pointed out that the CRA is a 10 year
program. By deferring until 2007,
the town is losing one year of funding
($118,884). In effect, the Town is
paying the County $118,884 for 15
acres of land.... This money is going
to be used to repair about 12-14
residences that are classed as blight
properties by DCA and to
repair/reconstruct the Towns '. streets


in the CRA Zone. Both items are very
serious problems for the Town. If
these funds had not become available
this year. the town would have had to
go to the County and ask for funds to
do our streets. The Town has a 3 mnil
cap per its Charter and can not raise
the village to cover such high capital
costs as road repair and construction.
The net effect is that the CRA funding
relives the County from having to
fund these roads in the near future....
This offer will have to be ratified at
the HBTC meeting on January 5'',
2006..."
Teddy Kight, HBTC, stated that he
and Katherine Hutchinson were
present tonight to find out the BCC's
stand on the offer. The CRA plans
started in 2002. We came before the
BCC about the need to repair roads in
HSB and the BCC chose not to help.
That is when HBTC began to look
into the CRA..
Arthur Bellot discussed the gas
taxes being low that fund the road
projects for the county. DC residents
don't realize that they hurt the county
when they purchase their gas in other
counties, but we understand when
prices are sometimes lower.
Commissioner Hays stated that DC
is below the state average on gas
taxes levied and is equal to Levy
County and a penny lower than
Gilchrist County.
Attorney Lander stated that the
County wants to work with HSB.
Knowing the CRA will be deferred;
the issue is really the 15 acres of land.
The HBTC wants an answer to take
back to the table.
Mr. Kight informed the Board that
they have to see if the CRA can be
waived for a year: this is a proposal
that is being checked on by our
attorney.
Commissioner Driggers said the
attorneys need to confer and
Commissioner Valentine should be
there.
Attorney Lander stated that it is no
secret that he feels the CRA
requirements have *not been met.
Also, I feel that the CRA and the
property request should not be linked.
In any event, the Board is agreeable
that you need the property. .If the
CRA is cprrect, the county will
comply. The bottom line, if they
don't get the property they are going
to loose the grant.
Chad stated that the county is the
one who tied the CRA to the land
issue.
Mr. Kight stated that he had rather
not have anything to do with a CRA,
but HSB is steady going down. We
simply have to do something.
Commissioner Lamb, inquired
about an annexation rumor circulating
about HSB.
Mr. Kight commented that there is
a. piece of property that is being
offered for annexation, but it has not
been brought before the HBTC. We
do not want to- putt a burden on
anyone, we just need to do something
and need to know what you are
willing to do.
Commissioner Valentine stated that
he wants HSB to have the land.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
has been accused of not caring about
HSB. "My mama was bornm in HSB; 1.
have roots there. But I'm looking at
this from a business point of view. If
for some reason they do not get the
grant, we have given away a valuable
15 acres".
Chad Reed stated that the Board
needs to understand that the HSB
water situation is critical.
Commissioner Land said, "I think
we ought to give them the land. This
is the future for HSB. Commissioner
Valentine wants to give the land and I
back him up."
After more discussion regarding
the matter the Board agreed to a
proposal for Mr. Kight to take to
the HBTC.
Attorney Lander stated the legal
for the proposal as follows: "The
County agrees to deed 15 acres,
more or less; subject land to the
Town of Horseshoe Beach under the
following conditions and the Board
of County Commission reserves the
right to challenge the creation of the
CRA,. If the CRA is determined
valid, HSB will defer the payment
due in January 2006. and HSB
would return 2.6 mils to the County
for EMS MSTU for the life of the
CRA. The County will pay HSB
under the CRA program for the 9
remaining years. All payments due
under the CRA program shall be due
no earlier than March 1" of the year
in which it is due".'
Teddy Kight noted that the 2.6 mils
may change the CRA from 12.6 mils
to 10 mils; Attorney Conrad Bishop is
checking on this.
Chad Reed stated that HBTC
discussed the return of the'2.6 mils on
EMS side back in August 2005 prior
to this issue with the 15 acre parcel.
HSB is on the verge of a State of
Emergency with the water situation.
Motion by Commissioner
Valentine, seconded by
Commissioner Hays and carried to
approve the proposal quoted by
Attorney Lander.
Mr. Bellot discussed an email he
received from Curtis Mixon regarding
the NRCS Emergency Watershed
Projects in Suwannee. The final
inspection on the two projects was
completed on December 13"' and the
works of improvement appear to have
been installed as designed. A couple
of things are needed in order to close
out the projects .and this will be taken


care of. The approval will need to be
attached to the voucher for
disbursement to the contractor.
A proposal for the phone system in
excess of $10,000.for the courthouse
was discussed by Arthur Bellot. The
company providing the quote
currently provides our maintenance.
The County Judge has made some
requests for required conferencing
capability that must be met by the,
Board. Mr. Bellot suggested that the
entire courthouse phone system
should be updated since some of it
was so outdated it is hard to get
replacement parts. Integrated
Telephone Services of Chiefland is
currently providing our maintenance
at a substantial savings.
The Board agreed to move
forward on this plan with


Integrated Telephone Services.
Mr. Bellot presented a fax memo
from Don Cutchins of First Coast
Auction (FCA), Tallahassee, Florida.
Mr. Cutchins states that he looked at
the items that the county is
considering for auction and they
should bring excellent monies. FCA
has a 5% fee of the selling price and
will transport the items from the
county to the auction site. If for some
reason the D3C XL does not sell, they
will also transport it back to the
county. Mr. Cutchins feels that the
county will receive much better
results through the auction as
opposed to a local "sealed bid" sale.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Hays
and carried to put a reserve on it
and send the items to the January
21"t, 2006 Tallahassee auction. If
they do not sell at the auction, they
.come back and a county auction or
sealed bid will be done.
DICK EDWARDS,
COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
CONSULTING
Mr. Dick Edwards presented the
Dixie County Grants Status Report
dated December 1.5'h, 2005 to the
Board as follows:
SHIP
a. The Dixie County SHIP
Program funds were restored
December 9'h by the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation's Board of
Directors and Dixie County's
$350,000 SHIP allocation for 2005-
2006 was sent to Denise Lytle via
priority mail, overnight, via F)ed-Ex
on 12/14/05.
b. We hope to begin working
the SHIP Program in January, 2006
in conjunction with the H'lricane
Housing Recovery Program,
however, since we have not had SHIP
or CDBG funding since the 2005
hurricane season, we have discovered
that the Dixie County SHIP and HHR
assistance levels will not work-costs
have increased drastically since last
March.
We have contacted every SHIP
Program in adjacent counties and
have discovered a wide range of
housing replacement levels: Gilchrist
County ($85,000) Hamilton County
($50,000/$145,000) Taylor ($65,000)
Levy County (No -Replacement
Strategy) Lafayette ($118,000)
Columbia ($118,000) Madison,
($118,000) Suwannee ($135,000) and
Union ($130,000).
Dixie County's assistance levels in

all categories need to be increased
because the SHIP & HHR Programs
are not in compliance with
established maximum assistance
levels. We suggest that the
Commission revise the strategies as
follows.:
Emergency Repairs:$8,000 to
$9,000; Housing
Rehabilitation:535,000 to $45,000;
New Construction:$55,000 to
$70,000;HHR Down Payment
Assistance: $20,000 to $40,000
The Commission might want to
create a new assistance strategy
named: Public Assistance Match and
the SHIP/HHR Committee suggest
putting a 50% limit on participation.
Also, the SHIP/HHR Committee
proposes that the Commission should
permit local contractors to
participate in the grant housing
programs if they can provide a local
license and proof of insurance
coverage. Finally, the Committee
recommends that the Board adopt a
Deferred Payment Loan Agreement
that provides for a five, seven and ten
years lien depending upon the
assistance levels.
The Commission needs to adopt
revised SHIP and HHR housing
assistance plan (HAP) resolutions.
c. The Commission needs to,
determine if. they want to include
porches (or a porch) on each of the
new homes that the
SHIP/HHR/CDBG Programs build.
Also, we suggest that heat pump
heating and air conditioning be
installed in the houses to increase the
energy efficiency of the units.
Recommended size is 8' x 10'.
d. The Hurricane Housing
Recovery Program has received bids
to replace three homes, one
manufactured house replacement
home proposal and one down
payment assistance request. The
SHIP/HHR Committee recommends
approval of the Christina Snellgrove
and J. Everett projects as presented.
Bids received as follows:
1. F. Valentine home-ICMS
$68,150; Lester Paulk $57,000
2. L. McDuffie home-ICMS
$68,150; Lester Paulk $60,373
3. S. Adkins home-ICMS
$68, 150; Lester Paulk $58,072
4. C. Snellgrove-Prestige
Homes $49,659
5. E. Morgan home-Lester
Paulk $14,777
6. J.E. Cooper home-
Phillip Bryan $57,253
7. Scott McCall home-
FEMA (match) $41,475
8. J. Everett home-
Ameriquest $1S5,000
SHIP/HHR Committee recommends
that Valentine, McDuffie and Adkins
be re-bid to include manufactured
home bids; recommends that E.
Morgan be re-bid in an effort to have
work qualify as Emergency Repairs
($9,000); recommends J.E. Cooper
project be re-bid as a replacement
house/manufactured home:;
recommends the home owner be
required to provide at least -50% of


the required match.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Hays
and carried to approve the
resolutions; the SHIP resolution
No. 05-66 and the HHR resolution
No. 05-67.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
is against the purchase of mobile
homes.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner
Valentine and carried to build
homes and not purchase mobile
homes.

Steinhatchee Garden Club Holds

5th Annual Spaghetti Dinner

The Steinhatchee Garden Club had its 5" annual Spaghetti
Dinner January 21, 2006. I must say the Garden Club really
stepped it up a notch! The decorations were spectacular. They had
the stage in the Community Center decorated with an Italian flair!
The backdrop was right out of an Italian picture. They had several
potted trees and plants all around. There was even a running
fountain! The small round table set up with a tablecloth and
wrought iron chairs completed the picture. Food was to be served
from 5 PM to 7:30 PM, but was served until well past 8 PM.
. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. . .. .. .


President Mickey Nyber, on the leJt, receive a check from
Sharon & Tommy Gaughn of Steinhatchee River Realty.. They
donated $175 to send a child to summer camp.
The weather was comfortable and it seemed like everyone, in
Steinhatchee came out. For $5 ($3 for children), one could get
spaghetti, salad, bread and drinks. Desserts were only 50 cents
more. In addition, the selection of desserts was staggering! There
was everything from lemon delight to carrot cake to brownies to
you name it! Everything was home made and delicious. Each
table had a bowl of infused dipping oil to dip your bread. It was
,quite a gala. They served over 180 dinners.

.. S.. -I &..


The room was beautifully decorated to help carryout the Italian
theme for the night

President Mickey Nyberg had sent a challenge around to all

the business in Steinhatchee to send one child to summer camp.
The cost is $175 per child and the Garden Club will match each
child sent by a business. Tommy and Sharon Gaughn from
Steinhatchee River Realty accepted the challenge and were the
first to donate.
Many door prizes were donated by various businesses and
individuals for a drawing. Meg Fleming donated a stunning
stained glass piece, Linda Della Poali donated a beautiful piece of
art work, Mr. Jackson of Jackson's Furniture in Perry donated a
beautiful ring, Henry Garcia from Westwind Marina donated a
very nice rod & reel combo, and a couple .of t-shirts were given
by Crabby Daddy's (the old Steinhatchee Lounge).


The large crowd at the Spaghetti Dinner enjoyed the delicious
meal.
The Garden Club would like to thank those.members who
helped in the planning, serving, cleaning, making the desserts,
etc. and a special thank you to Charlotte Gamble and Bonnie
Heaton for their great decorations.
All the money collected will be used to send a
Steinhatchee/Jena child for a week to summer camp. The Garden
Club sponsors children to Camp Wekiva which is located just
outside Orlando.
