Dixie County High School JROTC

Presents At Gator Nationals
By 1SGSnyder i
The DCHS JROTC is on r
the road again. 19 March 2006
I took five LET I (ninth ,
graders) cadets to the Gator D
National Drags to perform a
color guard for the opening of -
the final rounds. This was a
first for the young ladies and a
first for the National Drags. 4J
Never before has a high school
been asked to perform at aa
National Event. The cadets
had a bad case of the nerves
and I hope you understand

140,000 drag racing fans. No

fine.
While we were waiting to present the Colors the ladies were standing around in the ARMY
hospitality tent and we looked over, and there was Ashley Force a Top Alcohol Driver. The girls got
really excited and started waving at her and she waved back. They ask if we could get a photo %Ith
her and without a blink of an eye she came over and we took a photo. What an outstanding youngg
lady Ashley is to take time to talk to these young ladies.
Soon it was show time and the ladies were feeling a little weak in the knees. But just like good
cadets they pull together, raised their chins and without a second though, Colors Commander Ashley
Hillenburg marched the ladies out in front of all those fans like they had done this a hundred times
before. It took a little time before everything was ready and girls stood their ground at the position of
attention. Ashley called the ladies to Present Arms, and the National Anthem was sung. Gosh what
can I say about these young Americans. Thanks Ladies for a Job Well Done HOORAH!
Afterwards the'cadets were invited back to the US ARMY hospitably area to meet Tony

With Dixie/Taylor County On Boat Ramp Issue To Be Held April 6th

Commission Highlights
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of County Cominissioners met for their regular meeting on Thursday,
March 16th at 6:00 pm. While the agenda was light, there were several items of interest that were
discussed during the meeting including a special request by the family of Nick Collins, former Bears
football players. now with the NFL Green Bay Packers.
Collin's father, Willie. first addressed the Board and thanked them for all their support over the
years. "One of the reasons that Nick was chosen was because of his background," stated the senior
Collins. "For years scouts were looking at Nick arid the hospitality that was show n to them while
they were here made quite an impression," he added. "Nick loves his hometown."
With that said, Hattie Bell Johnson proposed to the Board that signs be placed at the entrance of
S,... ... the county with Collin's picture stating that
Dixie is the home of Nick Collins NFL player.
Be llfor the Green Bay Packers. Johnson noted that
Collin's talent not only brought Dixie County
High's program to a state level, but also to a
national level.
The Commissioners all agreed that it would
be a fitting honor and one that was most
deserved. Commissioner Hays noted he had
heard that while Collins was home he spent
time out on the DCIHS field with the young
players giving them pointers. Anyone who
knows Collins knows that he is not only an
outstanding football players, but individual.

Bellot also reported on several important issues, including that a meeting had finally been set
with the Ta)Ior County) Commission on boat ramp issues. The meeting will be held on April 6th at

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Once again residents in the Tri-County area gathered at the Suwannee River Livestock Pavilion
in Fanning Springs for the annual Youth Fair. FFA and 4-H'ers from Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy
Counties brought their prize poultry, rabbits, goats, cattle and swine as well as their home economic
projects to vie for the grand champion trophies in their category. The 2006 show was kicked off on
March 4th with the Horse and Heifer Shows and continued March 10th through the 15th when the
buyers gathered to bid on the swine and steer entries.
This year's total fair sales were $781,501.38. Fat Steer Division brought in $231,137.66 with th-e
Grand Champion Steer bought at $9.00 a pound and the Reserve Champion, $8.25. There wevee622 -
fats sold for a total of 71,489 pounds. Feeder Steer total sales were $322,526.22 for 127 feeders -ith
a total of 81,960 pounds. The Grand Champion price per pound was $7.00, while the Reserve
Champion brought in $11.00 per pound. Market Hogs totaled 53,790 pounds for 219 hogs with total
sales at $227,837.50. TheGrand Champion swine had a high bid of $15.00 per pound, while the
Reserve Champion was at $5.00 per pound.
It always amazes me to see the camaraderie and sportsmanship shown at this annual event. We
could all learn from the example that these young people show as they help each other, encourage
each other and praise each other as they show their animals and exhibits. It is because of this anid the
large number of volunteers that work to pull it all together, that this year's Fair was a success.
Congratulations to all the winners and to all who participated!

"Antarctica Reflections".. .Local Resident

Visits The Most Desolate Place On The Globe
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Most people think of going south for the winter as a natural occurrence for birds and some
people; like our "snow-birds" from the north; traveling to their homes here in the warmer Florida
climate. Gene Dumas of Old Town however, went about as far south as you can this past winter; he
traveled to Antarctica.
Antarctica is the highest, coldest, driest, windiest, most desolate place on the globe. It contains
more than two-thirds of the world's fresh water in the form of ice, and yet some areas receive less
than two inches of precipitation a year. It is larger than Australia or Europe, but has no permanent
residents. Why would anyone want to go there? Gene said it was because he simply "wanted to."
The 66 year-old retired history teacher has traveled the world most of his adult life, seeing all 50

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
Alright already...enough is enough about how many deaths
occurred during Bike Week in Daytona this year. One concern I
have is the fact that you hear after every Bike Week and
Biketoberfest how many more deaths happened during each event,
which I feel fuels law makers and the "average-Joe" citizen about
"the importance of bringing back the mandatory helmet law". The
only problem with that type of news is that there are NO
STATISTICS comparing the percentage of deaths to how many
people were at these events and how many of those people
are brand new bikers. Also, how many of those deaths are not
bikers being killed, but were hit by a biker?
The whole story as to safer Daytona events, or any biker event
is to practice SAFETY...plain and simple. I've been biking 35
years and never had a major incident because of good safety
measures learned, and every area in the state of Florida has
motorcycle safety courses, and from simple common sense.
Too many of our new bikers are not just young people, but
upper-class and a little older and want to be cool with their friends,
so they buy a bike, go to Daytona Bike Week, only to turn around
and sell their bike after arriving home from the event. I've seen
this time and time again over the years...just look at the Classified
section 1 -2 weeks after Daytona Bike Week, especially in your
big-city newspapers.
Bottom line...let's not let this "scare tactic" get to the law
makers to bring back the mandatory helmet law. Let's teach safety
first for better riding and continue to let those who ride decide
whether or not to wear a "lid"!

Letter To The Editor
"Through The Eyes of A Hunter"
I was giddy with excitement, ready for the thrill of the chase!
I could already feel the wind in my face, as I ran through the
woods, hot on a scent. Me the hunter, not you. At least that's what
I anticipated as you loaded me up in my tiny box in the back of
you truck.
Before you released me from the confinement of my metal
prison, for some reason unknown to me, you removed my collar.
There I stood, faithfully' waiting for your command. But it
never came.
Instead you mumbled something about me not doing a good
job, and not being worth the food.you dumped in my bowl,
whenever you thought about it.
Which from the looks of my belly wasn't very often.
You left me standing there all alone on the side of the highway,
then you drove off and never looked back. I wondered when you
would come and pick me up. I waited for a long time for your
return, but when the dark cold night fell upon me, and hunger pains
took over I went in search for you.
You were no where to be found. Car after car passed me by but
none of them were you. I am scared, where are you?
After what seemed like forever, I finally came upon a house.
There I found refuge. I was welcomed by a family, (my new
family). They helped me after you had left me on the roadside to
die. They pulled all of the blood engorged ticks off my tick ridden
body, gave me a nice bed to sleep in and all the food and water I
could endure.
They gave me little things called treats. I've never had one
before but they sure are good. I'm starting to feel better now. My

how he was proud to be a part
of our small county!.!!
Well... we in Dixie are

THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : How long do I have to
pay a traffic fine? What will
happen if I don't pay it within
that time frame
A.: Payment of traffic fines
must be received by the Clerk's
office or postmarked within 30
days of receiving the citation.
If you are mailing the payment
ton the 30th day, mail it from a
Post Office, since payments
placed in a postal receptacle
may not be postmarked until
the next day.

Failure to pay your fine within
30 days will result in a late fee
(check with your Clerk's office
for the amount) and will be
reported to the Department of
Highway Safety and your
license will be suspended. Your
license will remain suspended
until you pay the late fine, late
fee, and driver license
reinstatement fee.

Depending on the county you
live in, your Clerk's office may
handle this in one of two ways:
Option #1: Upon paying your
fine, you will be given a

COMMISSION "
Continued from page 1

Continuing his report on Steinhatchee/Dixie business was the proposed wastewater plant by the
Steinlatchee Water Association (SWA). While the initial reaction of the Board was somewhat
negative, there have been a number of meetings between Bellot and other parties involved, including
representatives from Taylor County with a more positive outlook.
Bellot noted that the SWA, a non-profit private company, was willing to reorganize into a dual
county utility company where both counties would have input into the wastewater and water for the
area. Bellot stated that he agrees with SWA in that now is the time to act while development is in
the early stages.
SWA Manager, Rex Dunn, reported to Bellot and the committee they plan to go ahead with the
project and look for the first phase of the plant to be completed within a year.
The Board remains cautious, but more open to the proposal by the SWA.
The next news Bellot gave the Board concerned the approval of funds by the Florida Department
of Transportation for the re-paving of CR 353, aka Governor Hill Lake Road and CR 358 Loop, US
.19 to US 19 at the Jena Road (old 19). The funding for the projects comes for the FDOT's Small
County Road Assistance Program (SCRAP).
Bellot noted that currently the CR351A (Suwannee Lumber Road/Continental Road) project is
out to bid and should begin soon.
The Commissioners added three new projects to the SCRAP "wish list"; 351 A, Goronto Springs
Road, and 340 North.
The next Board meeting will be held April 6th at 10:00 AM.

Trees Planted Now Mean Cleaner Air Tomorrow
Tree planting season is just wrapping up this year, but many Floridians do not know that the trees
being planted now will help keep their state clean and healthy for years to come. Florida's forests
are renewable resources that constantly improve the environment and the quality of life for everyone
in the state.
Consistent reforestation is the key to a healthy forest. The Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services reports that over 6 billion trees have been planted in Florida since 1927.
Each year, 82 million trees are planted in Florida, making it one of the top four tree-planting states in
the U.S.
Florida is active in reforestation, with four trees planted for every tree harvested in the state.
Forestry, which brings over $16.6 billion to Florida's economy, is the state's largest agribusiness
sector. That puts forestry even above citrus, yet most people do not know how vital this commodity
is to Florida's economy and its environment.
As a result of reforestation efforts by private non-industrial and corporate landowners, the United
States has millions of acres of young, vigorously growing forests. Vigorously growing trees remove
carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and turn it into oxygen. One mature tree sequesters up to 26
pounds of carbon dioxide from the air and releases enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe for
a full year. It is estimated that a family sedan releases the equivalent of 9,700 pounds of carbon
dioxide each year--the amount
... .,, ,. o. of carbon taken up by about
04 p '" '37' 33 trees during an 18-year
S. period of time. Tree planting
not only renews our forest
resources, but trees clean our
air, the forest soil captures
rainfall to replenish the aquifer
and forests provide habitats for
wildlife and green space for us
to enjoy.-
These vigorously grown
S. trees are a result of successful
tree planting, which requires
extensive planning and
S, attention to detail. According
,.to Florida's Best Management
Practices, a set of silvicultural
.ve guidelines followed by 99% of
forestry professionals in the
state, site preparation and
Buckeye Nursery Inc., located in Perry, FL has been growing planting procedures hould be
seedlings since 1956. planting procedures should be
planned even before the
previous timber is harvested. The Florida Division of Forestry provides guidelines for minimum
quality of pine seedlings and for ideal planting procedures.
Along with responsible forest management, science also plays a major role in successful
reforestation. Buckeye Nursery, Inc., located in Perry, Florida, has been growing quality pine
seedlings since 1956. One of the oldest pine seedling operations in the South, the nursery has grown
over 700 million seedlings in its 40-year history--enough to reforest more than 900,000 acres.
Buckeye Nursery produces scientifically advanced seedlings through a process called Tree
Improvement. This process continuously improves tree quality by selecting mature trees with
desirable qualities and producing seed from those selected trees through cross-pollination. This
results in young trees with the desired qualities of the mature trees from which they were grown.
The improved trees are faster growing, self-pruning and disease-. and rust-resistant with straighter
stems. Each generation is improved to be superior to the previous generations of trees.
This process began nearly forty years ago, when seed selections were made from a group of
desirable, naturally growing trees. Since then, the process has been repeated many times so that the
seedlings sold today can typically produce 20-30% more volume growth than the original
generation.
"The trees we grow today are much improved from when we began some forty years ago;'," says
one of Buckeye Nursery's owners, Johnny Mack Brown. "Some can produce even 40% more
volume growth than the original generation."
Every acre of pine seedlings in the nursery can be used to plant 909 acres in the forest at a
density of about 726 trees per acre. In 2005, seedlings from Buckeye Nursery alone were planted to
create over 20,000 acres of new forests.
With advances in science and increased knowledge of responsible forestry practices, Florida can
continue to nurture its 14 million acres of forestland. It takes thousands of people like Johnny Mack
Brown to keep Florida's trees growing. As long as Florida's forests continue to thrive, we will. all be
able to reap the benefits: clean air, clean water and a beautiful state in which to live.

Chestnut Cannon Exchange Vows


Shelly Ann Chestnut & Richard Reddick Cannon, Jr.
On Saturday, March 4, 2006, Shelly Ann Chestnut and Richard
Reddick Cannon, Jr. exchanged vows. The outdoor ceremony was
held at 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon at the gulf side home of Buddy


and Joeann Sheppard. The afternoon was sunny and clear with a
light breeze, and in full bloom were vivid red and subtle pink
hibiscus. A perfect spring green painted the lawn where the vows

were exchanged.
The bride choose a tropical color palette with accents of
Hawaiian yellow, pink and red. She wore a flowing, ankle length
chiffon dress. The tropical colors of the dress were the perfect
choice, and the turquoise beaded sling backs coordinated
beautifully. The bridesmaids wore shades of pink, orchid and light
blue, while the groom and the groomsmen wore tropical button-
ups.
White tulle and hibiscus cascaded down illuminated
candlebras, as the Hawaiian wedding march played softly. The
glowing bride walked down a rose petal covered white carpet aisle
escorted by her sons, Matt and Cole, who gave her away. A
hibiscus and ivy arch was prepared for the bride and groom and
was situated at the end of the white carpet aisle. Tall, coastal palms
and handsome ferns completed the elegant Hawaiian bridal scene.
Ms. Janice Chestnut, the bride's sister, served as maid of honor,
while Rikki Cannon, the groom's daughter, and Judy Ann Cannon,
the groom's sister, served as bridesmaids.
Thomas Cannon, Steven Cannon, along with the bride's sons,
Matt and Cole, served as groomsmen.
The bride and groom exchanged vows in the presence of a
large crowd of family and friends. Following the wedding
ceremony, guests were treated to a full buffet and every
confectionary imaginable. It was truly a perfect day that will serve
as a cherished memory to not only the bride and groom, but also to
all who shared the wonderful day of happiness and true love.
Thank you to all who attended and helped make the day so special.


Martha Dunnam and the late Andrew Dunnam
of Cross City, Florida

Abundant Life ...

& Living
By Lucille Stockton
Strangers: Beware how you
entertain strangers, lest ye entertain
angels unaware, Hebrews 13:2 (kjv).
Many of us are getting ready for Jesus
to come back to earth to take us back
to heaven with Him. We use the
phrase He is coming for a Church
without spot or wrinkle, and we are making ready for his arrival. Many of
us are informing others that "He is coming soon". But some of us have our
own way. He is suppose to come. Let us be very careful to watch with
wisdom that we don't miss His arrival.
It's written in the book of Revelation 1:7 every eye will see Him. If he
comes as an angel or a stranger, we might see him and don't know who he
is. Let us watch as well as pray, with patience and foresight. Let's move
our own stereotype and fuel our lamps with love, peace, joy and
forgiveness, share and care for all of his human family, that we will
recognize Him if he arrives in a royal chariot or in humble manger
setting, or as a lost, lowly stranger looking for a home and loving family
or a homeless, hungry, beggar in need of care. Would we know Him?

The Word Made

Flesh
God's Sabbath
Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say the Day of the
Lord is God's Sabbath the 1,000-
year day, the millennium. '
(Mathew 6:10) "Thy kingdom
come. Thy will be done in earth,
as it is (done) in heaven." It will
be done in heaven first; the heaven
must be clean first. The Day of the
Lord the millennium is not a
calendar day of the week, but it is
a people with a purpose. Now.as
Jesus Christ was the visible
expression of the invisible Father
(spirit), or God expressed in a
man, He is God's revelation of
Himself to man today. We must
understand that Christ is the head
of a great many-membered body
in which by the spirit must dwell
in fullness. We must understand
that'Christ is not complete apart
from His body, the church. We
must understand that His body is
as much a part of Him as He is of
'God. I, the son of man, say John
14:19-20 says "... a little while,
and the world seeth me no more;
but ye see me: because I live, ye
shall live also. At that day ye
shall know that I am in my Father,
and ye in me, and I in you." Not
some day after you die, but now, if
you can see what I'm saying. We
"must understand that we are to be
the glory of all ages. We must
, understand that we were before
(out in front of) Abraham, Issac,
Jacob, and also Jesus; and they
rejoice to our day. They cannot go
on without us. (Hebrew 11:40)
''God having provided some better
thing for us, that they without us
shQuld not be made perfect." We
must create a new world and a
new body, that has no awareness
of life or death. We must not try to
save the old world that is of
corruption. We must see that a .
new world is created. One that has
a life that has no death in it. Man
must understand that the life he
has now has life and'death in it.
We must create a life with no
thought of death in it. We must
become life that will stop death.
We must stop thinking of a Christ
that lies in His flesh and blood
body today. ((john 4:1-3)
"Beloved, believe not every spirit,
but try the spirits whether they are
of God; because many false
prophets are gone out into the
world. Hereby know ye the Spirit
of God: Every spirit that
confesseth that Jesus Christ is
come in the flesh is not of God:
and this is that spirit of an-ti-
christ, whereof ye have heard that
it shoUld come; and even now
already is it in the world." The
word "is" means now. He is in His
body, the church, now; not some
happy day. Continued next week.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
The Day of the Lord.
This Day is not a calendar day of the week, but it is a people with a
purpose.
Now as Jesus Christ was the visible expression of the invisible Father,
(Spirit) or God expressed in a man, He is God's revelation of Himself to
man today.
We today must understand that Christ is the head of a great many
membered body, in which by the spirit must dwell in fullness.
We must understand that Christ is not complete apart from His body,
the church.
We must understand that His body is as much a part of Him as He is
of God.
St. John 14:19-20 Yet a little while and the world seeth me no more;
but ye see me; because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know
that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
Not some day after you die, but now if you can see what I'm saying.
We must understand that we are to be the glory of all ages. We must
understand that we were before (Out in front of) Abraham, Isaac, Jacob
and also Jesus; and they rejoice to see our day. They cannot go on without
us.
Heb. 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us that they
without us should not be made perfect.
We must create a new world and a new body, that has no awareness of
life and death.
We must not try to save the old world that is of corruption. We must
see that a new world is created, one that has a life that has no death in it.
Man must understand that the life He has now has life and death in it.
We must create a life with no thought of death in it.
We must become life that will stop death. We must stop thinking of a
Christ that lives in the past, and think about the living Christ that lives in
His flesh and blood body today.
First John 4:1-3 Beloved believe not every spirit, but try the spirits
whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into
the world.
Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that
Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that
confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this
is that spirit of an-ti-Christ, whereof ye have heard that it should come;
and even noe already is it in the world.
The word "is" means now. He is in His body, the church, now: not
some Happy Day. To be continued.

Florida Division

Of Forestry

Advises Caution

With Outdoor


Burning
The Florida


Division of


Forestry (DOF) is advising
residents not to conduct any
outdoor burning at all today
and to use caution the rest of
this week due to extreme
weather conditions. Windy
and dry conditions are
favorable for increased fire
behavior which could cause
wildfires.
Residents are urged to
always use caution when
conducting outdoor burning
activities such as yard debris
pile burns or acreage burns on
windy, dry days. Yard debris
pile burns greater than eight
feet in diameter and acreage
burns always require a permit
by DOF. Weather forecast
predictions for tomorrow do
not include gusty winds.
Therefore DOF should be
issuing burn authorizations
with restrictions. That means
that heavy equipment, such as
farm tractors with disks or
harrows, will be required.
Residents are advised to
wait until significant rain
occurs to do anymore burning.

FWC WEEKLY REPORT
March 10-16, 2006
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.



NORTH CENTRAL REGION
CLAY COUNTY
March 6, Officers Michael Heath and Cromwell Letcher
responded to assist the Clay County Sheriffs Office with two
subjects who were detained for trespass hunting. Investigation
revealed that the two Clay County men were hunting hogs with
dogs without permission of the landowner. Heath charged both
subjects with trespass other than structure or conveyance.
March 10, Officers Alan Hofmeister and Michael Goodwin,
along with Reserve Officer Richard Hartsfield, responded to an
anonymous report of two men in possession of an alligator. Upon
the officer's arrival, both men were read their Miranda rights
before being questioned. The two men confessed to killing a
four-foot alligator on nearby property. The head of the alligator
was removed from the body and the body was buried in the back
yard of the residence. The subject intended on keeping the head,
which was found near a storage shed. The body was subsequently
recovered and photographed. Both men were charged with
unlawful possession of an alligator.


SUWANNEE COUNTY
Officer Dwain Mobley has been working information on
illegal turkey hunting in Suwannee County. After working the
area several mornings, he finally made contact with a suspect.
The individual was in full camo with a 12-gauge shotgun loaded
with turkey shot and using a turkey call. When approached, the
subject said he was calling coyote. The individual was charged
with attempting to take wild turkey during closed season. The
shotgun and turkey call were seized.


TAYLOR COUNTY
March '10, Officers Andrew Bickel and Chad Albritton
conducted a citizen contact on two individuals at Fenholloway
boat ramp. During the contact, the subjects gave permission to
the officers to look through their vehicle. After the driver exited
the vehicle, he lunged back into the vehicle and was restrained by
Albritton. As the subject was being restrained, he threw a baggie
containing crack cocaine onto the side of the road. As this was
occurring, Bickel was removing the passenger from the vehicle
and located a crack pipe on the subject's lap. A thorough search
of the vehicle also revealed a loaded .22 rifle with a 10-round
magazine. Both subjects were arrested and taken to the Taylor
County Jail for possession 5f crack cocaine and possession of
paraphernalia.

Buddy Martin's Speaks...
A good day to be father of the coach

JACKSONVILLE The gray-haired man in the hound's-tooth
sports coat had the perfect vantage point: Ringside in
Veteran's Memorial Arena. You get good tickets when
you're the daddy of the coach.
By only cutting his eyes slightly one way or the
other, Bill Donovan Sr. could see his favorite a
basketball team rallying in the second half to bury
South Alabama, all the while keeping tabs on his
family.
Across the way, his son paced in front of the Gator
bench while just behind it, in the stands, sat his
daughter and two of his 10 grandchildren.
"I'm just waiving at my grandson over there," he
explained. "He's got that silly hat on."
Like any good grandfather, Donovan Sr. divided the time
equally.
"I don't get as nervous as I did when Billy was as a player,"
said the 65-year-old Donovan, himself a player of renown at
Boston College. And he didn't.
Granddaddy Donovan was living large, watching hoop and
rooting for his own blood.
There was a little angst when the score was 19-18, Florida, with
about five minutes to play in the first half. Corey Brewer hit back-
to-back threes and at intermission the lead had widened to 31-25.
In the second half, Lee Humphrey lit up the scoreboard with a trio
of three-pointers as the Gators pulled away and won, 76-50. It's a
lot more fun when you don't have to hold your breath and watch.
Marveling at the talent and the hustle of 6-11 Joakim Noah,
who posted a remarkable line of 16 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists


One Run Difference

Mayo, 4-3

Chiefland, 5-4'
The Lady Bears played Mayo at home last
Thursday night and came away with the win,
not a pretty one, but none the less a mark in the
win column. The Lady Hornets scored 2 runs in
the first inning on Bear errors and, the score
remained 2-0 in favor of the Hornets until the
Lady Bears got on the scoreboard in the bottom.
>of the sixth with a score by Mandy Cannon .
Kayla Clemens scored in the bottom of the
seventh after she reached second pn a double.
The score was tied 2-2 going into the 8t
2; inning with Lafayette scoring one run n the top
of the inning. Caroline McClellan reached base
after being hit with a pitch, Sherry Jefflies had
a single scoring McClellan to tie the score and
Jeffries walked home after the Mayo pitcher
pitched an illegal pitch; giving the: Lady Bears
a 4-3 win. "
As the old saying goes, ''If you don't
. succeed at first, try, try again. ;f things go as,
planned then Dixie and Chiefland will meet
Again in District play in April.
Monday night in Chiefland the Lady Indians
for the second time this season, beat the Lady
SBears by one run. With this victory the Indians
"claim top spot in the District playoffs.

and 5 blocked shots, Donovan Sr. began to relax and enjoy. As
Noah dove on the floor to retrieve a loose ball and then ran down
the court to dunk, Donovan said, "that's why the NBA loves him
as a power forward."
(Careful, now, don't tell Billy his dad mentioned those dirty
letters, "NBA.")
Once confident of the win and with his team
breezing nicely, Bill Sr. worried about
relationships. Fully aware of the friendship
-- ,',,, Billy Jr. has with opposing coach John
Pelphrey, his ex-Florida assistant, Donovan
Sv.'i said compassionately, "I don't think you'll see
S Billy try to score too many more." Moments
later the Gator benched emptied.
Bill Sr. rarely misses a game these days and
will be in Minneapolis next weekend for the
Sweet 16 if Florida gets past University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee here on Saturday.
It hasn't all been sweetness and light for the Donovans. Bill Sir.
hears the whispers like everybody else when the Gators get
knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the first or second round
as they have done every season since making the Final Four in
2000.
Worrying. It's what parents do about their kids, no matter how
old they are, how successful they might have been or how high of
a profile they might have. But he's also very optimistic.
Bill Sr. has a twinkle in his Irish eyes when he says, "What do
you think of our chances in the tournament?"
A Sweet Sixteen team or better, he was told, and then lie was
asked: "Do you think they'll make the Final Four?"
You could see the twinkle in his Irish eyes, as Granddaddy
Donovan nodded affirmative.

The Bears got on the scoreboard first in the
top of the. first when Jaime VanAernam got on
base by a hit pitch, Jessica Chewning moved
her to third with a double into right field.
VanAernam scored when Katrise Kirkland hit a
fielders choice back to the pitcher.
Bears pitcher struck out the first two batters
in the bottom of the first and the inning ended
with a magnificent catch by right-fielder, Britni
Robson on a long fly ball by M. Weatherford.
Neither team scored in the second inning,
but the Indians got in the. scoreboard in the
third with unearned runs on Bear errors. But
the Lady Bears tied the score 3 up in the fourth
inning when Chewning and Kirkland both got
on base on singles. Sherry Jeffries got a single
to drive in Chewning and Kirkland scored on a
fielders choice by Caroline McClellan.
The Bears went 4 up and 3 down in the fifth
inning and gave up 2 runs in the bottom of the
inning to give the Lady Indians a 5-3 lead.
No one scored in the sixth inning but the
Bears managed only one run in the top of the
seventh to give the Lady Indians the 5-4 win to
clinch top seed regular season District play.
Chiefland's pitcher,' Megan Weatherford

By contrast, farmed salmon

However, when careless-

They sometimes swim up wild
salmon rivers and breed.
Sadly, matings between wild

weaken wild salmon runs that
are already threatened.
Majestic wild Atlantic

Jo Dee Messina is an award-winning, multi-platinum country
artist who puts her heart and soul into her craft. Experience the
optimism, strength and hope her music conveys during the upbeat
show at Wild Adventures Saturday, March 25, beginning at 6:30
p.m.
Born in Massachusetts, Jo Dee was first attracted to country
music after hearing Alabama and Hank Williams, Jr. She admired
the strong women of the genre, including Dolly Parton, Loretta
Lynn and Reba McEntire. At 19, Jo Dee made the difficult
decision to move to Nashville, where she didn't know a soul or
have a grand plan. All she knew was she wanted to sing and
began to lay the groundwork for an extremely-successful career.
Jo Dee has had eight no. 1 singles, multi-platinum albums and
been honored by the Country Music Association, the Academy of
Country Music and the Grammy Awards. She was the first female
country artist to score three multiple-week #1 songs from the
same album. But success aside, Jo Dee has faced more than her
fair share of adversity. These trying times reinvigorated, her and
provided new musical inspiration. She believes while some life
experiences may be hard, it's those experiences that make'us who
we are and make life worth living.
The concert is included with park admission for lawn.chair
seating. Covered reserved seating directly in front of the stage is
also available for an additional $15 or $20.
This all-star concert joins more than 100 'rides and
attractions, including nine roller coasters. Come face-to-face with
more than 500 exotic animals set in natural habitats throughout
the park or take in one of the dazzling daily shows.,'Wild
Adventures is located off Interstate 75, exit 13 in Valdosta,' Ga.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
''"' ^' Self-Discipline
May Beat Smarts
As Key To Success
In the American culture, we
are caught up in immediate
gratifications of our wants and
desires. If there is something
we want, we don't wait until
S eiwe can afford it, we charge it.
Superintendent Our society markets the feel
;Dennis W. Bennett .
;,; good mentality of instant
gratification. When we add to that the lack of self-discipline, we
find later that we are not as successfully prepared to meet life's
academic and financial demands.
Self-discipline plays a big part in being successful in schools'
academic endeavors. Pennsylvania researchers suggest that self-
discipline.and self-denial could be a key to saving U.S. schools.
According to a recent article by Angela L. Duckworth and Martin
E.P. Seligmanin in the journal Psychological Science, self-
discipline is a better predictor of academic success then even IQ.
Underachievement among American youth is often blamed on
inadequate teachers, boring textbooks, and large class sizes. The
researchers said, "We suggest another reason for students falling
short of, their intellectual potential: their failure to exercise self-
discipline ... we believe that many of Americas' children have
trouble making choices that require them to sacrifice short-term
pleasure for long-term gain, and the programs that build self-
discipline may -.be ,the royal, road to building academic
achievement." -
The results of research show highly self-disciplined
adolescents outperformed their more impulsive peers on every
academic-performance variable, including report card grades,
standardized achievement test scores, admission to a competitive
',high school and attendance. Self-discipline measured in the fall
predicted more variance in each of these outcomes than did IQ,
and unlike IQ, self-disciple predicted gains in academic
performance oyer the school year.
What we as educators and parents need to understand is that
teaching our children and students self-discipline can help them
triumph over more talented applicants that are competing. .An
example of .this is Chris Everett, who triumphed over more
talented players because she was self-disciplined to practice more.
What research is showing us is important for us to understand.
If we teach our children to delay self-gratification through sell-
discipline then we can expect our children to out perform their
more impulsive peers and see the long range successes and
rewards that life can pro% ide.

Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday March 16"' at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Two quilts were put together
and one goes back to New
York and we hope when they
come back in the fall, it will be
quilted. Three members from
the Joyful Heart Quilters came
to pick up their quilts and
crafts we put in the fair for
them. We saw blue, red and
white ribbons on them and we
are very proud of our sister
club.
Mike Brannon came up
from Canap Curuth to have
lunch and pick up a quilt that
we donated to them to hang.
We will be going down March
25th to visit and have dinner. It
is always a fun day and *we
look forward to seeing our
many friends.
Our Watermelon Quilt -is
almost finished and we are
taking donations on it. It will
be given away at the Festival
in June.
Lunch was so good today.
We had German meatballs,
Chicken potpie, Mac &
Cheese, collards, spaghetti,
biscuits, chili, potato salad,
coconut pie, orange cake, and
so much more.

FHP Five-Day

Operation

S.T.E.P Nets Over

600 Citations and

Multiple Arrests
The Lake City District of
the Florida Highway Patrol
recently conducted a five-day.
Enhanced Enforcement Detail
within Columbia County from
March 13-17, 2006. Operation
"Selective Traffic Enforcement
Patrol (S.T.E.P) is an operation
aimed at reducing serious
injury and fatality crashes on
Columbia County roadways
and surrounding areas.
Operation S.T.E.P. is
comprised of Troopers from
the entire nine-county Troop B
area. The increased serious
injury and fatality crashes,
citizen complaints, and large
volume of traffic violations,
qualified Columbia County as
a candidate for Operation
S.T.E.P.
Troopers utilized Driver's
License and Faulty Equipment
Checkpoints, Stationary Laser
Radar, Unmarked Patrol
Vehicles, and FHP Aircraft
Speed Enforcement Details to
conduct high-visibility and
assertive traffic enforcement
actions throughout the entire
Columbia County area.
Operation S.T.E.P.
commenced on March 13th,
and concluded on March 17th,
2006. The operation
culminated with a : DUI
Selective Enforcement detail
on Friday, March 17th, 2006.
Operation S.T.E.P resulted
in 652 traffic citations, 176
written warnings and. 128
Faulty Equipment Violations.
The Operation also resulted in
4 DUI Arrests, 23 Seatbelt
Citations, and 4 Citations for
.02% Blood Alcohol
Violations to motorist under
the:age of 21.
Operation S.T.E\P. is a
perpetual Florida Pighway
Patrol Troop B traffic
operation aimed at reducing
the amount of serious-injury
and fatality crashes in Troop
B. Furthermore, the operation
is designed to enforce Faulty
Equipment Violations on
motor vehicles.
"Recei\ ing a traffic ticket
is never a pleasant experience,
however recent studies have
shown that enforcement-is the
most effective deterrent to
educating the motoring public
of the dangers of speeding and
other traffic violations," said
Lt. Mike Burroughs of the
Florida Highway Patrol.
"Faulty equipment
violations are ever-present on
the roadways in Columbia
County. We are eKperiencing
phenomenal growth.
subsequently resulting in more
congested roadways. The need
to adhere to speed limits and
other traffic laws has never
been greater. I hope that
Operation S.T.E.P. serves as a
reminder that we each need to
do our part to make Columbia
County's roadways safe," said
FHP Captain Tim Culhane,
Lake City District
Commander.

ANTARCTICAA"
Continuedfrom page 1


Check out our website @ www.dcadvocate.net


states and traveling to seven continents which include Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa, and South
America, North America, and now Antarctica. He has lived in Japan, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Greece,
Turkey, and Mexico. He has traveled along the same trail as Lewis & Clark, lived on the
reservations and taught the Native American tribes of the Sioux, Seminole, Pueblo, and Havasupi.
He also teaches Bible Archeology, History and Prophesy. In fact, many of Gene's travels have come
from churches sending him to teach. While teaching history, Gene was able to secure a number of
grants that paid his way to foreign countries.
Today, Gene lives in Old Town with wife, Linda. They have two children, Gene, Jr. who lives in
Old Town and Jessica who lives in Bell, Florida. They moved to Florida five years ago when they
followed their daughter down here. "I haven't spent one winter here since I moved here," Gene
stated. In fact, most of the time he goes up to Maine and stays with friends there. Linda prefers the
warm Florida climate.
Gene began his trip from the United States to Argentina, staying there for three days before
flying to Ushuaia: the southern most city in the word. From there, he and his group of 75 boarded
Sthe Russian Ship. "NMyv Lyubo\ Orlova." The ship would take them through the Drake Passage,
known as one of the most dangerous passages due to the treacherous cross winds and rough seas.
Gene noted that the furniture was bolted to the ship's floors in order to keep it from falling. It would
take them two days, passing the South Shetland Islands, before reaching the frozen continent.
The average temperature during the day is 30 degrees, at night it plummets to 0. The record low
is 165 below 0. Gene went during the beginning of the summer there and found the temps bearable.
Gene.and his group were given a tour at one of the many research stations, Vernadsky Base; once
,: a Russian station, now Ukranian. Their.main objective is to study the ozone layer and its global
effects.
While there, he would see penguins, sea lions, Fin and Minke whales and a host of birds. The
* terrain is made up of rock and ice and snow. Gene was most impressed with the colors of the ice
layers, with the deep blue and black of the old ice. They would visit an abandoned whaler station,
appropriately named Whalers Bay.
While his visit was brief, it was most memorable. Antarctica has always been a place where:
explorers dream of going to, a forbidden world made of ice. Gene wrote the following about his
adventures at the South Pole, giving us a small look into what he experienced and sawv in a place you
and I will most likely never see...
ANTARCTICA REFLECTIONS
S Antarctica. a 1'ast frozen wilderness, desolate, unspoiled. clean,
the ivesomenc rumble of calving glaciers. interrupt the sound of silence
-.. le' ,rom the bridge of a Russian ship. I picture myself in the stead of such courageous men,
f he likes of A.mundsen. Scott. and Slhackletoh
1' Scott, I learned. >, would not be the first to set loor on the southern-most pole, .
and Shlackleton, in spite of his ambition, .a would neither reach the pole, traverse the continent, nor
circumnavigate the world's coldest land.
Then Amundsen, after achieving his ultimate victory, surrendered his !ife to the elements of ai.
Artic wilderness at the opposite end of the planet. l .
S I feel proud to follow them into this vast and pristine land. : '


Penguins. penguins, by the tens of thousands litter the landscape.
Alacaronm. Gentoo, Chinstrap, Adelie,
And ever so often a solitary Leopard Seal,
Doctlely sunning himself on some, secluded stretch of beach.


"On Deception Island, at Whaler's Bay. the ruins of a station,
Stand as a stark reminder to a lost era,
and two crosses on a lonely tolcanic mound
ser'e as mionumients to those who paid the ultimate price.
Paradise Bay, and we marvel,
as we stand dwarfed by those monstrosities of nature,
the sun glistening through the aqua-blue ice,
while black ice, clear as crystal, floats on the Polar Sea.
That night, from the bridge,
Surrounded by pack-ice as far as the eye can see,
I spy a lonely penguin.
Adrift on an ice flow.
Minke and Fin whales frolic in the frozen sea as we head out into the infamous Drake Passage,
and pick our way, stealthily, through the ice pack.
A wandering Albatross wings her way, effortlessly, following our wake,
and I realize that the most unique of all my adventures is playing out, as we make our way back
into the real world.
Farewell, Antarctica, frozen in time,
Continent where superlatives abound,
Land of icy mountains, massive glaciers, magnificent icebergs,
and home to Snowy Pectrels, Blue Eves Shags, Rockhopper Penguins and Crabeater Seals.
Your memory will haunt me forever....by Gene Dumas
Where will Gene go next? "To China to see the Great Wall and Forbidden City," Gene stated.
. He and wife Linda hope to make the trip next year.
