Officers Where They Could Purchase Drugs


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Two Bell residents were arrested last
Friday, March 24th, 2006 after they attempted
to find someone to purchase "crack" from;
unknowingly having asked two off duty Dixie
Sheriff's Deputies. Candy Johnson Hamilton,
42 and Gary Mark Monroe VanWinkle, 25,
both of Bell were arrested for one count each
of Attempting to Purchase Cocaine.
According to SO Deputy, J.M. King, he
was visiting fellow officer, John Simmons at
Simmons' residence when Hamilton and
VanWinkle pulled into Simmons' driveway.
King asked the couple what they wanted and
they stated they were looking for an
individual. King then asked them what for and
allegedly replied that they were looking for

something to get high on. Deputy Simmons joined in the conversation and asked them, "Crack?"
When the couple responded "yeah", it was at that time that Deputy Simmons told them to look
over across the yard where his patrol car was parked. Officer King then identified himself as well
and the two were arrested for attempting to purchase a controlled substance.
Hamilton and VanWinkle were taken to the Dixie County Jail where VanWinkle was charged
with Attempting to Purchase Cocaine, Resisting An Officer w/o Violence and Driving While
License Suspended or Revoked.
Bond was set during their first appearance in front of Dixie County Judge, Fred Koberlein later
that same day on the misdemeanor charges.


Tragic Accident
Takes Levy
Toddlers' Life
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last Friday, March 24h, 21
month-old Taylor Barrand of
Chiefland was fatally wounded
after he crawled under a UPS
delivery truck and ran over
when the driver left the
driveway.
According to a press
release from the Florida
Highway Patrol, the UPS
Driver, Scott Howard
Goldberg, was making a
delivery to Daniel Barrand,
when the tragedy occurred. He
had backed into the Barrands'
driveway, and when the senior
Barrand saw the truck he went
to go get his package. The
toddler had been outside with
his father in the backyard when
the truck arrived and neither
his father nor the driver saw
him leave the backyard and
crawl under the truck. It
wasn't until the driver left that
the young boy was struck.
Little Taylor Barrand was
flown by helicopter to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville, where
he was later pronounced dead.
No charges were filed in
this incident.
Our hearts and prayers go
out to the Barrand Family.

Letter To The Editor
1 found the article regarding the Dixie County Commission's
position on sewer in Steinhatchee and Jena to be quite amusing.
This is the same Commission that has not widened the Jena
Road while continuing to permit unrestricted growth in the low
lying Jena community; the same Commission that turned down a 32
foot height restriction for the Jena area (which Taylor County
adopted for the Steinhatchee community six years ago); the same
Commission that has tentatively approved a seven-story condo in a
marsh on the Jena side; the same Commission that built a boat ramp
with no parking facilities requiring boaters to park on the side of the
road all the way past the bridge during scallop season; the same
Commission that expects a non profit association made up of
members of both the Jena and Steinhatchee communities
(Steinhatchee Water Association) to ask permission to carry out its
business.
For over thirty years the Steinhatchee Water Association has
served both sides of the river without regard to "county." It has
done this without the "us versus them" mentality that was witnessed
at the meeting between the Dixie County and the Taylor County
Commissioners. The people of Jena and Steinhatchee regard their
community as one entity. The Taylor County and Dixie County
politics should be put aside for the greater good of the one
community of Jena and Steinhatchee.
Fiscally two water facilities, two sewer facilities etc. make no
sense in a rural sparsely populated area. Steinhatchee Water
Association was formed to bring running water to these
communities primarily because neither Taylor nor Dixie County
wanted to provide that service.
Sewer is a majo- issue and with growth taking place at an
exponential rate, probably a necessity, unless the health of the
environment and the river is of no importance.
Presently developers with large tracts are planning to put small
package sewers in place. Of course once the development is "built
out" and the developer has gone to greener pastures, these package
plants often fail, forcing government to step up and either fix them,
buy them or build a better one. Of course all this costs much more
in the long run both fiscally and environmentally.
Sewer and water must be together and in Steinhatchee and
Jena, they must serve both the south and the north sides of the
community, even if the river is a county boundary.
In order for an inter local agreement or agency to be formed
and the Steinhatchee Water Association turn over its millions of
dollars of assets to this joint Taylor -Dixie entity, the members of
the association have to approve it. Given the history of Taylor and
Dixie county governments record of non cooperation, it might be
better for the private non-profit association to continue serving both
sides of the river without rancor.
Of course there are a few die-hards that would love to see
Steinhatchee and Jena secede from their respective counties and
become a new county Dead Man Bay County. Works for me.

"PRESCTIPTIONS"
Continued from A-i


That's gratitude
Back about last November, Islamic terrorists captured four
.members of an ostensibly Christian organization who had shown
,up in Iraq for some reason other than to convert the heathen to the
:faith, as will become apparent forthwith.
Enter a special detachment of British and American troops,
:who rescued three of the captives. The fourth, Tom Fox, had been
beaten and shot to death two weeks earlier, then left on a trash pile
:in western Baghdad, his body wrapped in plastic. Apologists for the
:terrorists are suggesting that Fox was shot while trying to escape.
Yeah, right.
The three who were rescued all needed medical treatment,
which should come as no surprise, considering the way Islamic
terrorists are in the habit of treating the people they kidnap (see
;above paragraph). But were they sincerely appreciative of the
troops who rescued them? One would hardly get that impression
from what we have since heard from Christian Peacemaker Teams
(CPT), their parent organization. Here's a sample:
"Working for the human rights of the detainees of the illegal
Occupation has been the primary focus for Christian Peacemaker
Teams in Iraq since the invasion of March, 2003...CPTers Tom
Fox and Norman Kember repeated their long-standing commitment
to Iraqi freedom. They called for an end to the occupation and
freedom for all Iraqi people."
Last week, radio talk show host Neal Boortz got a representa-
tive of CPT on the phone and asked what she'thought about the fact
that the three men were rescued by a detachment of British and
American troops. Boortz posed the question repeatedly, as the
woman persistently evaded, alluding instead to why her
'organization objected to our military presence in Iraq. She
'eventually accused Boortz of putting words in her mouth when all
'he was trying to do was get a straight answer.
Another CPT source reacted this way: "We believe the illegal
-occupation of Iraq by multinational forces is the root cause of the
insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and
suffering in Iraq today. The occupation must end."
Later on, in response to considerable criticism, CPT released a
Statement that at least acknowledged the military's role in securing
the hostages' release: "We are grateful to the soldiers who risked
Their lives to free Jim, Norman and Harmeet. As peacemakers who
hold firm to our commitment to nonviolence, we are also deeply
:grateful that they fired no shots to free our colleagues."
Well, ain't that just dandy! Suppose our troops had found it
-necessary to waste a few towel-heads in order to rescue the three
Spacifist hostages? I can guarantee you that they embarked on this
Mission prepared to do exactly that.
Which brings us to the question, just what the hell are these
people doing in a war zone anyway? How do you suppose General
"'.George Patton would have reacted to a bunch of peace activists
- getting in the way of the US Army during the European campaign?
Christian Peacemaker Teams has headquarters in Toronto and
; Chicago, and is comprised of members of liberal and pacifist
. churches which seem to encourage a "roll over and play dead"
: approach to dealing with hostility. They can achieve nothing of
Value in the War on Terror, they are butt pimples on the posterior
: of progress in that region and need to be back home, where they
can perhaps get jobs teaching military history at some liberal
: university.
* On the other hand, Boortz had a pretty good idea. He suggested
. that, in view of their failure to appreciate our efforts in their behalf,
and in the Iraq war in general, we could just give them back to the
' terrorists.
Or would that be inhumane treatment of the enemy on our part?

SSpecial Notation: The Letter To The Editor that
appeared in the March 23rd issue of the Advocate entitled
'-"Through The Eyes Of A Hunter" and signed by Lisa Smith is
NOT Lisa Ellison Smith of Horseshoe Beach.


Medical Practice is one of 8
centers owned by the
Tallahassee based company,
was thrilled to be able to offer
this plan to their patients. "It is
because we receive federal
funding that we are able to
provide this service to our
clients," stated Don
Porterfield, CFO of NFMC. "It
is a win-win for the patient,
pharmacy and us," he added.
The 340B Drug Pricing
Program was established in the
1990's as a part of the
Veterans Health Care Act
which limits the cost of drugs
to federal purchasers and
certain grantees of federal
agencies. Basically, it gives
providers like NFMC the
opportunity to ride the "shirt |
tails" of this program.
The program does not
change your prescriptions or
how your doctors prescribes
them. You can save on generic
or brand name drugs with
savings from 10% to 80%. Of
course the generic is less
expensive and would further
your savings, but it is your
choice. The program has an
inventory of 34,000 drugs at
your pharmacy's disposal.
Jan Parks, Family Medical
Center Manager, spoke about
the program briefly at the
March 2nd Commission
Meeting and invited the
Commissioners to the Monday
press conference held at the
Cross City Center.
Commissioners, John Driggers
and Buddy Lamb were on hand
Monday to meet with NFMC
representatives and find out I
more about the program.
The rules for the program
are simple. You must be a
patient of Family Medical
Practice who will in turn write
your prescriptions to be filled
at Cheek Pharmacy. You will
always pay the lowest price
available to Cheek's. If you
have insurance coverage, using
this program can help you too.
If a drug is not covered by
your insurance carrier you are
eligible for the discounted cash
price.
Porterfield stated that one
patient from another center had
to take a drug that was costing
them $210.00 a month.
Through this program he was
able to purchase his
medication for half the price,
$105.00. "We already know
the program works, and we are
looking for to all of our
patients being able to benefit
from it," he added.


For more information about
this program you may contact
Family Medical Center at 498-

Nets 7.31 Tons of

Hazardous Waste
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
On Saturday, March I11th the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and the Dixie County Commission
sponsored the Annual Toxic Round Up. Dixie Solid Waste
Coordinator, Joe Ruth stated he was pleased with the turnout as
the figures came in with 7.31 tons of hazardous waste.being
collected for the day.
A total of 95 households participated in the event bringing
1,950 lbs of flammable liquids (including paint and solvents),
280 lbs of roof tar, 1,584 lbs of latex paint, 120 lbs of aerosol
cans, 4,822 lbs of used oil and other lubricants, 500 lbs of used
oil filters, 758 lbs of pesticides and insecticides, 120 lbs of
antifreeze, 145 lbs of florescent lamps, 3,710 lbs automotive
batteries, 50 lbs ni-cad batteries, 120 lbs propane tanks, 133 lbs
corrosive liquids/solids (acids), 530 lbs e-scrap (TV's,
computers), 510 lbs non-hazardous solids/contaminated soils, 72
lbs photographic solutions, and 120 lbs fire extinguishers.
Ruth noted that this year's "round up" drew 21 more
residents and an additional ton and a half in waste. "It was a real
success," Ruth stated. He added that he felt people are
becoming more and more conscientious of the importance of
proper disposal of hazardous waste and taking advantage of
events such as the one held each year in Dixie.

Rep. Will Kendrick Speaks To
AARP Members In Jena


'"'N t

At .~


Rep.Will S. Kendrick (D) Carrabelle met with a group of
approximately thirty AARP members in Jena to address their
- concerns with current legislation and the effects on the senior
population of their community.
Issues he spoke on included the funding of nursing homes,
the restructuring of Medicaid to HMO's, and other pending
legislation that could potentially affect services.
With the 2006 Legislative Session into its third week, many
of these issues are progressing through committees and can have
greater implications for fiscally constrained rural counties.
Rep. Kendrick said, "It is always a pleasure to visit with
constituents of District 10 and listen to issues and concerns that
affect each of them on a daily basis. I am thankful for the
opportunity to represent this area and appreciate all the things that
everyone does to help us do our job more effectively in
Tallahassee."
"CLERK"
Continued from page A-i
Sands stated that she has fallen in love with Dixie County and
has hoped to be able to serve the people here. Before her
appointment for the Clerk's position, Sands was thinking about
running for the House of Representatives District 10 seat. Her
recent appointment will now afford her the opportunity to serve on
the county level.
"I am beyond excited," stated Sands. "I want to thank the
Governor for giving me this chance," she added. "My main goal
will be to help the citizens of Dixie County and to do my very best
at the job the Governor has entrusted to me." Shands also noted
that she has been overwhelmed at the reception the courthouse
personnel have given her and she can't say enough about the
wonderful staff that she will be working with.
"I also want to thank Chad Reed for all his help," Sands stated.
"He has been a real sweetheart." "I know that I will be able to call
on him and he will be there for me," she added. Reed was
appointed at Clerk Ad Interim until the Governor's appointment of
Sands last week. Reed has returned to his duties as Director of
Emergency Services.
Sands' first day on the job was effective Thursday, March 23,
2006. She fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Joe
Hubert Allen last December.
We wish her all the best. .


Donita Tannenbaum Appointed
Chair Of Dixie For Davis
Democratic Candidate for Governor Jim Davis Taps
Chairs in All 67 Counties
TAMPA -- After becoming the first candidate for governor to
visit every county in Florida, Democrat Jim Davis today
announced he has appointed county chairs in each 'of the state's
67 counties. In Dixie County, Davis tapped Donita Tannenbaum
to spearhead his local organizing efforts.
"I am honored that Donita has agreed to donate her talent to
build our campaign organization in Dixie County. It's because of
the commitment and hard work of people like Donita that we'll
win this race and bring the kind of change that's desperately
needed in Tallahassee," said Jim Davis.
The slate of elected officials, teachers, seniors, small business
owners, nurses, veterans and even some Republicans sends a
strong signal about Davis's deep and diverse support across
Florida. Davis's robust statewide organization is an important
part of his strategy for winning, not just the Democratic primary,
but also the general election.
Davis said that his statewide organization represents his
commitment to competing for votes in every community in
Florida and that he will be a governor who everyone in Florida
can be proud of.
"When I launched my campaign, I set a goal of visiting every
county because I want to be a governor for all Floridians," said
Davis. "I've met and talked with voters all across Florida. From
rural counties to urban counties, from small counties to large,
Floridians want a governor who will listen to them and respect
them. I will be that governor."
Two weeks ago at a town hall meeting, Davis unveiled his
vision for Keeping Florida's Promise to our children, our seniors,
our families, and our communities. Among his ideas, Davis
proposed investing $1 billion from this year's budget surplus to
create a Teacher Endowment Fund that would give Florida's
teachers a permanent salary increase.
Davis also discussed his specific ideas for overhauling the
FCAT, reducing the cost of prescription drugs, helping small
businesses afford health insurance for their employees, protecting
Florida's precious quality of life, and bringing broadband Internet
to every community.

"GULITY"
Continued from page 1-A
In November of 2004 a grand jury indicted Lawrence for Carr's
murder.
Lawrence's trial began on Monday, March 20th. On the 24h of
March after a week of testimony and final arguments by the
attorneys, it took only a few hours for the jury to find Lawrence
guilty of Murder In The First Degree and Burglary While Armed
With A Firearm.
Judge William R. Slaughter, II sentenced Lawrence on Friday
due to the fact that Carr's daughter would have to travel from up
north again for a later sentencing date. Slaughter sentenced
Lawrence to Life Imprisonment on the first degree murder charge
and an additional Life Imprisonment on the Burglary While Armed
With A Firearm charge. The sentences are to run concurrent.
Lawrence was turned over to the Florida Department of
Corrections.

Michelle Branson & Bryan Wright
Announce Wedding
wwK wi.X AlulkT ..d.AL v...Y' &l 4


Bryan Wright & Michelle Branson
Michelle Branson and Bryan Wright would like to announce
their upcoming marriage. It will be on April 9"' 2006 at 2:00 p.m.
at Bill and Trisha Lee's home on SR 349 N (also known as Lee's
Custom Services). No local invitations, all friends and family are
invited to attend the ceremony.

A Special "Thank You"
To All Of You
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who
participated in the fundraiser held for me. There are just too many
people to begin to name all of you. But I would particularly like to
name a few who got everything going. Larry & Pam Edmunds,
David O'steen Laverne Rhodes, and Myrtle Land.
Thanks to all the cooks, all of the sponsors, and the restraints
who donated to make this a success. Thank God for living in a
community where the outpouring of love and concern is so
outstanding. The money that was raised meant so much since I did
not have any insurance when I was diagnosed with Melanoma
cancer 2 /2 years ago until recently. The brain surgery I had in
January is keeping me going but the cancer remains to be terminal.
I would like to say a special "Thank You" to the crew at Roy's
for all they have done. I sure do miss each one of you. Also to my
friend Marlene Markham, Bro. Rocky Bray, Bro. Bobby Lindsey,
and the entire membership of the Suwannee River Missionary
Baptist Church for the love offerings, and Mills Andrews, Virginia
Cannon for the turnips. Alton and Vince Land, Katheryn
McGinnis, and the entire Land family. Mr. Dewey Wade for the
good food, Wanda Wester, Annette Ward, Carolyn Fowler, all my
family, my children, especially Jessica & my sister Vicki, my
daddy Leon Cooper & Jeanie, Trina Lynne and her little ones
especially Emma.
Thanks to all the churches for your prayers. I would cherish
hearing from any of you. I am at home now; my phone number is
(352)- 542-9504. My address is P.O. Box 1026, Cross City, FI
23628. U
May God bless all of you is my prayer.

Calvary Temple News
Over the past two years Calvary Temple has been attempting to
obey the command of God "To get the house in order"...a most
challenging command to obey. During the course of our stumbling
attempt many changes have occurred... most good. Our goal
remains the same! Become a true "Jesus Church"... level playing
field among "all" members... equal opportunity for everyone... no
church cliques or dictatorial leadership... release the gifts among
us.. .become a servant of God and man...exalt Christ.
In all humility it seems that God is rewarding our awkward
efforts. Scott was totally deaf in his right ear for six years and now
has perfect hearing... June came up from South Florida for a knee
replacement surgery on Friday...following last Wednesday
evening service she returned to her doctor on Thursday and to their
amazement her knee was totally restored. She received this
undeniable miracle instantly during a season of prayer Wednesday
evening. Another person deep depression completely gone in an
instant. Severe gall-bladder attack instantly healed. Tumors
disappear, knees healed, and financial miracles.
Water baptism was held Sunday morning with eight people
being baptized in water. New Believer Class continues to be
awesome. Mission support is up to twelve mission projects. Prison
ministry is on the verge of revival with inmates requesting water
baptism.
Katrina aid in excess of one thousand dollars. Almost two-
thousand dollars worth of books sent into prisons and other
ministries. There is an atmosphere of freedom in the house.
Attendance is on the rise with new people each week. Children and
Youth ministries are exploding. Finances are flowing to support
the projects. Letters continue to come in from our outreach
ministries. Free CD ministry is back in full swing...new equipment
purchased. Radio is doing great.
God is still God...Jesus is still the same...the Bible is still
true...the Holy Ghost is still working...miracles still occur...and
Jesus is coming soon. Scripture tells us in these last days many will
have a "form" of godliness but deny the power thereof. Nothing
that God established in His word has passed away...that is a denial
of the power thereof. Come see us at Calvary... we still believe the
Bible...all of it.
Mark your calendars for Easter/Friends & Family day at
Calvary Temple on April 16, 2006 beginning at 10:30 am.
Everyone is invited. Huge meal will follow services.


Faith Baptist
Church News
God has been so good to us
here at Faith. He has filled His
church with wonderful and
talented people who are always
willing to serve him and use
their talents for Him. The
weather was cool and crisp
Sunday morning, but bright
and sunny. Our church was full
of our members as well as lots
of visitors. Sister Janet Osteen
did the special music in the
morning service and did her
usual wonderful job. In the
evening service, Bro. Tommy
McQueen sang for us, doing an
equally good job. We have so
much talent in our church and
are so very thankful for it. Bro.
Jackie brought two fine
messages today that God had
laid on his heart. It was just a
great Lord's Day.
Our spring revival will
begin April 17th and continue
through the 20th. Make plans
now to invite someone to come
with you and come out every
night and hear Bro. Bill
Jenkins bring the message God
gives him.
On Friday, April 7th, the
Easter Brother (bluegrass
gospel) will be here in concert.
Come out and hear them and
bring someone with you. They


will bless your heart. There is
no admission fee, but a love
offering will be taken to help
them with their expenses.
Remember this week to
invite someone to Sunday
School and Church with you.


New Prospect Baptist News
We had another fine day in the house of the Lord Sunday, with.
our choir doing an exceptional job, and Bro. Billy continuing the
trend. He brought another of God's timeless messages, choosing
his text from Luke 21:1-4, once again challenging each of us to
self-examination. Sunday evening, we enjoyed our Children's
Easter Program, with which we were very impressed. All the
children, young and older alike, did an outstanding job with their'
roles! Good job, Brother Pat. After the program, we enjoyed;
snacks and refreshments in the church annex.
Our Spring Revival runs April 2nd-5th, with the first service
beginning Sunday morning, April 2nd at 11:00 A. M., then Sunday
evening through Wednesday evening at 7:00 P. M. Evangelist
Bro. Donnie Lott of Keystone Heights will be the speaker;
everyone is invited to come and hear this dynamic young man
expound God's word. On April 6th, the Semi-annual Associational
Meeting will be held at 4:00 P. M. at Mt. Nebo.
We were pleased to have more visitors Sunday, and invite you
to come back and bring others with you...we welcome all. As
always, please pray for the people on the various church prayer
lists, our President and other leaders, and the people serving in our
armed forces. Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Thank You
Janet Cooper's Benefit Dinner was a big success and we would.
like to thank the following businesses and individuals who donated
towards the dinner: Foodland-Stanley McHenry, Dixie Drive Inn-.
Michael & Shelia Cannon, Gail's Caf6, Hitchcock's Old Town,
Cypress Inn, Mid Town Caf6, Roy's Restaurant, Ruth Rains
Middle School, Gainell Ellison and Crystal Owens, First Baptist
Church Pastor Mike Brown, Jim Monismith of Coca Cola, Myrtle
Land, ladies of Suwannee River Baptist Church, and all the
individuals who donated baked goods. To the all the cooks who
prepared the food and those all who volunteered their day to help
serve and deliver the meals. May the Lord bless you all for all you
did.
Without all of these businesses and individuals this dinner
would not have been possible.
May the Lord bless you always,
Larry & Pam Edmonds


God will bless you for it and it
may be just the invitation
someone has been waiting for.
Also, remember to pray for the
less fortunate, the sick and the
lost. Don't forget our
Wednesday night Prayer


Service. God is here every
time we have services and He6
would like to meet you here as.
well. We'll look for you next'
week.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Cross City Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right
to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 01/12/06 show that our system
exceeds the standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts which includes both Total Trihalomethanes
and Haloacetic Acids. The standard for Total Trihalomethanes_is .080 mg/L. The level of Total Trihalomethanes was found at .137

The standard for HaloaceticAcids is .060mg/l. The level of Haloacetic Acids was found at. 134 mg/1.
What should I do?
You do not need to use an alternative (e.g., bottled) water supply.
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing Haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. However, Some people who drink water
containing Disinfection Byproducts in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or
central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
What happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water
and creates the Disinfection Byproduct.
What is being done?
The Cross City Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & The Department of Environmental Protection to resolve this
issue. We anticipate resolving this issue within the next 12 months.
For more information, please contact Ferrell 'Cricket' Spurlin @ (352) 498-5488 or Mike Cassidy @ (352) 498-3079. Town of Cross
City P.O. Box 417 Cross City, FI 32628.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this
notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this
notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice.is being sent to you by Cross City WTP. State Water System ID#: 2150243.

well as numerous Grammy

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Cultural Center has been working on the old Old Town Elementary School for
five years now which will house the office of the Dixie County Historical Society and feature a
museum, archive room and auditorium. The process has been long but with grant money from the
state and a host of volunteers the task of renovating the 1909 building is close to completion.
Restoration Coordinator Evonne Cline reported that the most recent renovations were the
installation of new electric wiring throughout the building. "Not only does it meet code, it surpassed
code," stated Cline. There are ceiling fans, track lighting in the auditorium and backup lights for the
building. On the outside the new antique lights really add charm to the building and are scheduled to
come on at dusk. Cline stated that she could not have been more pleased with the work David Lake
of Lake Electric in Old Town performed.
Cline noted that the Bessie Odlund Sheppard Museum is ready and volunteers are busy setting
the area up with a number of donated pieces that reflect a small portion of Dixie's history. The
museum is located downstairs next to the Historical Society Office.
Moving upstairs; a wall was removed that was not part of the original building. This portion of
the old school will house the Wilbur Long Archive section and genealogy room.
The Mary Chavous Anderson Auditorium is also near completion. A "tribute wall" has been
added and the stage has new lighting and fans. It is hoped that the floors will be able to be restored
to the original hardwood, if not, carpet will be added.
Cline expressed her personal thanks and that of the Historical Society to Overland Construction,
Inc., who is the general contractor on the project and to Cross City Correctional Institute for the
countless number of hours that the inmates spent cleaning, plastering and painting. "I don't know
how to begin to thank them for all they have done," stated Cline.
The last item on the list will be to get a grant for an air conditioning system. "It's hard to believe
that we are almost done," stated Cline. "At times I didn't think we would ever complete the
project," she added. A summer grand opening is being planned.
If you would like to become a part of the Dixie County Historical Society you are invited to
attend their meeting which is the 3rd Monday of each month at the Cultural Center, beginning at 6:30
pm. Come see what this group of historians is all about and how you can help with the preservation
of Dixie's rich history.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2006


Play


Dixie County Little
League season officially got
underway on Saturday, March
25. The skies were bright and
sunny, but a brisk wind kept
most people with the coats and
jackets buttoned up. The teams
were lined up on one field and
marched onto Field #1 when
their teams were called out
over the loud speaker.
Excitement filled the air as
the younger tee-ball players
strolled out with their
teammates, smiles could be
found everywhere.
Dixie County JROTC,
under the able direction of Sgt.
Snyder, presented the colors to
start the ceremony. What a
Magnificent job they did. It
really was not hard to dig into
your patriotic memories as
your watched these young
ladies perform their job so well
as the Star Spangled Banner
was sung. It made you quite
proud to see even the smallest
players place their hands over
their hearts in respect for our
flags and what they stand for.
Tank Lee, Mayor of the
Town of Cross City was the
celebrity this year who had the
honor of throwing out the first
ball of the season. After
missing the catcher's glove just
slightly, Tank admitted he just
forget to practice. Heath
Montgomery was the honored
catcher for the day.
Andy Chesser prayed a
prayer for the safety of the
Little League season and for all
the players and parents
involved in the program.
The drawing for the
shotgun was won by Jamie
Klause and little miss Jordan
Hill with the top ticket seller
and received a Wal-Mart gift
card for her efforts.


Ball!!


After the Board members
were introduced by President
Gary Montgomery, and a few
instruction were given, several
ballgames got underway, the
concession stand was busy with
two lines formed just waiting
for all the wonderful treats that
can be bought.
Official games started
Monday night and will be
played each Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday nights at
6:00 with games being played
on each of the six playing
fields. If you would like to see
some great ball playing, eat
supper just a little bit early


one of these nights and come
and enjoy watching the young
people play ball.. Better yet,
come out and have a
hamburger or hot dog for

Buddy Martin's Speaks...
Time for Love Among Azaleas
At The Masters


PONTE VEDRA, Fla. -If ever there was a
golfer who curried favor with the gods of the Augusta
National, somebody who deserved a little rub of the
green jacket in a couple of weeks, it would be Davis .
Love III, the consummate gentleman and a son of the
South.
If there's such a thing as a guy deserving
good Masters karma, having in line patiently for 17
years to stand tall among the dogwoods and azaleas, it
would be now for the 41-year old North Carolinian
who and has dreamed of winning there since he first
held his daddy's golf club.
Even Phil Mickelson has a green jacket, for crying out
loud, so it's time to take Davis's measurements.
He is rapidly running out of time. Twice he has been
oh so close, finishing second in 1995 and 1999. Six times
altogether he has made the top 10.
The oldest guy to win the Masters was Jack Nicklaus 20
years ago, 46 years and 2 months, two years before Love's first
appearance there. The average age of first-time winners is a mere
31.6 years. If there is hope in a stall it is that Mark O'Meara was a
first time champion at age 41 years. 3 months -just 8 months
11, ll. Davis will be.
Love's game is starting to peak again at the right time.
Thursday he shot a 65 on the difficult Stadium Course at The
Players Championship and announced lie was "feeling strong


supper as you watch your
favorite ballplayer.
Good luck everyone you
have the makings for a great
season.

again." Considering the amount of hours he has spent in the
fitness trailer in recent years probably equal to that on the
driving range health is an important issue.
"I haven't won, but I think I made a lot of progress
physically last year." Love said. "I got to feeling better and better
and contending more and more."
The last time Love prevailed it was in


"I'


The International in 2003 and he was a
dominant player on Tour that year with
victories in The Players, MCI Heritage and
AT&T at Pebble Beach.
He has won most of his 18
tournaments in bunches and repeats. He is a
five-time winner of the MCI. two-time winner
of The International and has two Players titles.
The golfers don't like to talk a lot
about the Masters while they're playing here
on this difficult track for $1.44 million first-


place prize money, but without question Love has his eye on the
prize immediately to the North. He was asked after his round
Thursday if the Masters had too much power in golf and replied
"no." But he did agree the folks in August had powerful
"marketing" influence on the game especially on "agronomy
dnd course design."
Why then is it so popular?
P..,u'..j l,... have something we all want -a walk
through the gates, the trophy ..."
He stopped short of mentioning the green jacket.
It's time for the gods to ante up. John Elway and
Jerome Bettis have their Super Bowl rings. Ray Bourke and Dave
Andreychuk their name on the Stanley Cup. Tampa Bay has a
Super Bowl title and the Boston Red Sox a modern World Series
championship.
It's time for the Masters to make the Love connection.

15.
B. The one major thing that
the Dixie County Commission
must do to qualify for CDBG >
funding (in any category) in
200i6 .is, hire a Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families
S(TANF.Y worker and work them
for '5.12 hours. This is worth 25
points on your application.
GC. There appears to be a
problem with General Leasing &
Development Corporation
qualifying for a CDBG
Ecoonouc Development project
this 'cycle. The company does not
anticipate being in position to
construct all four (4) planned

business sites within the 24
month grant period. If this is the
case, this project is effectively
finished because DCA will not
include development type
projects in future CDBG ED


funding cycles.
SHIP/HHR
I. In reviewing the Dixie
County Commission December
15, 2005 meeting minutes, we
noticed two items that need to
be amended and per the Dixie
County Clerk of Court's
direction ,we have prepared a
letter explaining what needs to
be amended.
II. There are four cases we
need to address:
a. William Johns and
McQuay Construction a $45,000
HHR Housing Rehabilitation
contract. Job was previously bid
$56,300 and McQuay will do it
for $45,000. (This is the
maximum in the HAP Plan. for
- Housing Rehab.)


b. Increase the award to
Susie Adkins and Prestige Home
Center from $40,000 to $44,000
for a handicapped accessible
manufactured home (to include
ramp, as well as, wider doors).
c. Our 2/16/06 Status Report
to the Commission requested
that the John Luke HHR
Emergency Assistance project be
funded for $39,876. If this is
what the minutes show, then it is
likely that this project will cost
no more than $39,127- to cover
the cost of site clearance
(removal of burned-out trailer).
Mr. Bellot is attempting to
secure a better price than we
have been quoted.
d. On March 31, 2005 the
CDBG program installed a new
manufactured home from Wayne
Frier Super Center in Chiefland
for Margaret Watson. Mrs.
Watson is having warranty
problems with the Fleetwood
dealer, but at the time the
project was finished, the Dixie
County Health Department
approved the location of the new
home on the Watson property
provided the septic system be
repaired. Unfortunately this was
at the time when all Dixie
County housing assistance
programs were experiencing
financial problems and the
septic system never was
repaired. Mrs. Watson- is now
experiencing septic problems
and this matter needs to be
addressed.
III. We are in the process of
attempting to resolve the Rose
Treverrow housing
rehabilitation project. We are
preparing a new write-up and
will re-bid the project.
IV. We are sending a letter to
Florida Housing Finance
Corporation concerning the
Katrina Branch case. This
project was begun before the
housing projects ran short of
funds in 2005 and we are asking
FHFC's SHIP Administrator
how to best handle the case
since we must observe applicant
ranking (in the 06 cycle) as
required by FHFC compliance
regulations.
Mr. Edwards went over the report
with the Board. Regarding CDBG he
stated that Arthur Bellot has tried in
the past to hire a TANF employee and
it has not worked out. Also, it is too
late to start with another applicant for
the CDBG Economic Development
project.
Regarding SHIP/HHR Mr. Edwards
stated that the Compliance Committee
met yesterday. Recommendations are
shown above.
Commissioner Lamb stated he had
no knowledge of the W. Johns
situation.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried with the vote of Commissioner
Valentine to approve the contract for
$45,000 for the Johns home.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried to approve the increase for the
Adkins home due to the need for
wheelchair access.
Commissioner Lamb discussed a
request by Ms. Adkins to keep her old
mobile home as a storage shed.
Billy Keen stated the county does
have some old mobile homes for
storage, but they have to be stripped of
the electrical and plumbing. If
relocated on the property it has to be
set up to code as a regular mobile
home.
Dick Edwards stated that it is a lot
less expensive to destroy it.
Commissioner Lamb requested Billy
Keen to contact Ms. Adkins and
explain the situation as to what is
required if she keeps the old mobile
home.
Mr. Edwards stated the Board needs
to approve the increase for the Luke
home.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried with all in favor to award
the $39,876 contract for the Luke
home.
Mr. Edwards requested approval of
a $3,500 increase for the Watson home
to update the septic problems.
Commissioner Land stated that the
roof on the home is already leaking.
Mr. Arthur Bellot stated he would
talk with the contractor today; if they
are not going to help the situation he
will be referring it to the County
Attorney.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried with all in favor to address
the issues with the Watson home.
There was some discussion
regarding the Treverrow home and the
applicant getting her own' carpenter.
A letter was submitted dated March
2, 2006 to the Board from Community
Programs Consulting regarding
amending the Minutes of the
December 15, 2005 meeting. The
body of the letter is as follows:
--Dear Commission:
In reviewing the Dixie County
Board of County Commission meeting
minutes for December 15, 2005, it was
noted that the portion of the minutes
dealing with the awarding of Dixie
County Hurricane Housing Recovery
funds to James E. Cooper, Sr. and
Scott McCall need to be modified to
accurately reflect action authorized


by the Commission.
In the James E. Cooper, Sr.
segment, the Board actually
authorized the expenditure of $45,000
towards the rehabilitation of the
Cooper dwelling as long as there was
no self-help contract involved. (This
project had been previously bid with
the total in excess of $55,000 which
exceeds the HAP Plan maximum of
$45,000, hence the need to seek an
alternate contract.) The Commission
authorized the HHR Administrator to
assist the Cooper family in locating a
licensed contractor who would agree
to correct all health and safety
violations at the Cooper house for no
more than a $45,000 contract price.
The HHR program assisted the
Cooper family in hiring Dixie County
contractor Ronald Cassidy who owns
and operates Cassidy Heat and Air
and the $45,000 HHR Housing


Rehabilitation contract that Mr.
Cooper and Mr. Cassidy signed on
January 10, 2006 needs to be
approved by the Commission.
The other issue involves the amount
of funding approved for applicant
Scott McCall.
In Mr. McCall's application he
requested $40,000 as matching down
payment funding for FEMA hurricane
housing replacement assistance. The
Dixie County BOCC approved
$20,000 in assistance for Dixie
County HHR resources.
We are requesting that the Board
approve the awarding of the Cooper
HHR contract to Ronald Cassidy and
that the $20,000 award of HHR funds
be revised in the minutes of the Dixie
County BOCC Minutes of December
15, 2005.
Dick Edwards-
Motion by Commissioner Valentine,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried to amend the minutes as
requested approving and authorizing
the Contract for the Cooper home in
the amount of $45,000.
Motion by Commissioner Valentine,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried to amend the minutes as
requested approving and awarding the
Contract for the McCall home in the
amount of $20,000.
A memo was presented from Cindy
Dey, Clerk of Court Finance Orficer,
regarding 2005 Hurricane Housing
Recovery Funds with attachment of
Expended and Encumbered Funds for
the HHR Projects.
All open contracts will be completed
before opening others.
Commissioner Hays inquired about
the problem getting the home
approved for Felita Carter and if
anything could be done to help her.
Mr. Edwards stated that she meets
the handicapped criteria but
unfortunately not the elderly part. Her
age puts her down on the list.
Arthur Bellot stated that Mr.
Edwards needs to ask for the States
approval on the Watson home.
The Board was in favor of Mr.
Edwards obtaining the States
permission before the work is started.

Commissioner Valentine stated this
has happened since the meeting in


Steinhatchee at the community center
and he had just heard about their plans
this morning when he arrived here at
the courthouse.
Mr. Dunn stated he wanted to be the
one to tell the Board but the
newspaper came out yesterday
afternoon. He stated that he will be
meeting with the Taylor County BCC
tonight at their regular meeting to
inform them of SWA plans.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that this Board intends to serve the
citizens to the best of our ability and
can't rush into a decision.

informational visit \ and is asking
nothing of the Board at this time.

GENE HIGGINBOTHAM.
CATTLEMANS ASSOCIATION
Mr. Gene Higginbotham came
before the Board and several other
members of the Cattleman's
Association were present in support of
Mr. Higginbotham. He stated they
were interested in the decision the
Board made to lease the Pop Vanes
Field to the Horseman's Association.
He said that the Horseman's
Association was supposed to include
the Cattleman Association in all of the
plans and thought they did until he
discussed the plan with someone in
Tallahassee to look for the grant
application and let him know the
status. That is how we came to find
out that the Cattleman's Association
was not included on the grant
application and now this lease exists.
Arthur Bellot stated that he has
spent 4 years working on this grant
and this is the first time he heard about
the Cattleman's Association being
involved. He stated that there was no
intent on the County's part to exclude
anyone. We keep trying for the grant
and we keep being pushed further
down the list due to larger counties
being able to come up with larger
matching funds.
Commissioner Lamb stated that the
grant is for the Dixie County
Agricultural Arena and Pavilion; that
is what I have been supporting and
will continue to support.
Melissa Long, Vernon Long, and
Lolly Sumner had comments for the
Board. They commented that the issue
with this is not power and control, it is
about education and everyone should
be able to use the facility; including
FFA, 4-H, the schools and any
educational clubs.
Commissioner Valentine stated he
agreed that this was his intentions that
everyone could use the facility.
Mr. Bellot stated that one of the
requirements on the grant is that
25,000 people must pass through the
doors of the facility each year. We
had to come up with possible events

that would create the interest of 25,000
visitors to the arena and pavilion each
year.
After further discussion, motion by
Commissioner Valentine, seconded by
Commissioner Land and carried to
rescind the lease with the Horseman's
Association for the Hudson/Pop
Vanes Field.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Lamb and
carried to form a planning committee
for this issue to consist of the
Commissioner Valentine, County
Coordinator, County Attorney, and
representatives from the Cattleman
Association, Horseman Association,
Trail Riders Club, 4-H, and FFA.
The Building Inspector Position
Review Committee subject was re-

ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR
Mr. Bellot introduced Jack Bowen
to the Board. Mr. Bowen sent an
email a few weeks ago interested in
helping the county as a park attendant
for non-compensation except for
parking his recreational mobile home
and utilities.
Mr. Bowen stated he is semi-retired
and is a property owner in Kingwood
Sub-division.
Mr. Bellot said the most critical
need is the Hinton Landing Park and it
is already set-up for a park attendant.
Just this week someone demolished
property and ,the gate was locked.
They either had a long hike or came in
from the river.
Commissioner Land stated he would
like to see him move in immediately.
Commissioner Lamb stated that we
need to furnish him a county radio.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve Jack Bowen as
a non-compensated employee and put
him at Hinton Landing Park with a
county radio.
Mr. Bowen inquired about flooding
and if he could move his mobile home
when it occurs.
The Board agreed that he could
move it to Waldo Park in these
situations.
Mr. Bellot informed the Board that
the Hinton Landing Dredging has been
completed and presented before and
after photos of the project.
Arthur mentioned that the Army
Corps of Engineers are still waiting on
the Certification of Lands and
Attorney Title Certificate for the
Horseshoe Cove Maintenance
Dredging Project from the County
Attorney.
Joey Lander stated he would take
care of it.
Mardee White presented a petition
with 232 signatures from Dixie and
Taylor County residents petitioning
"Dixie County Commission to
purchase the proposed boat ramp site
located on Hwy 358 in Jena Florida,
with or without the help of Taylor
County. We wish the commission to
know this proposed boat ramp and
county park; 1. Will give gulf access
to all Dixie county residents, not just a
select few. 2. Will most likely be the
last opportunity for Dixie County to
obtain a tract of property of this size
with gulf access due to high property
values."
Repairs to the Jena boat ramp on
Mack Valentine Road were discussed.
Arthur stated that this is not going to
be a minor project and will involve
Frank Darabi our engineer for design
and permitting. The Board needs to
consider whether or not to commit the
funds; it will cost approximately
$50,000.
Parking was discussed.
A citizen (name unknown) spoke in
favor of the repairs being done on the
ramp due to the county already owning
the property. He stated that Taylor
County owns 20 easements to the river
and won't discuss using them for
putting in a boat ramp. If you watch
traffic in Steinhatchee, they go across
the bridge to the Dixie County side to
put in their boats. He asked that the
Board please look into improving this
ramp and parking.
Commissioner Lamb stated it isn't
just people coming in from other
counties; our local citizens have the
same problem, in the area around the
comer from my home there are 5 Pro-
Line type boats that I know of. They
have trouble finding parking when
they want to fish the Gulf.
The Board agreed to keep looking
into the situation.
A letter was presented from Pat
Overton, Representativy .for American
Public Works Association Florida
Chapter, informing May 21-26 is 2006
American Public Works Week and
invites Dixie County to participate and
submit a Proclamation in support of
the endeavor. Proclamation 2006-02
presented for approval.
Arthur stated that we generally take
these services for granted, but when
the gas shortage came we began to ask
what we could do without; it was a
hard time.
The Board agreed and commented
how important these workers are to the
county.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine


and carried with all in favor to approve
Proclamation No. 2006-02. This
Proclamation will be displayed at the
APWA booth in Tallahassee, Florida
during the APWA Annual Meeting
May 8-12, 2006.
Some of us went to the FEMA
Workshop yesterday. Chad and I soon
realized that we knew as much as they
did, but surely it was informative to
some of the attendants.
The Challenger Tractor is sitting
idle. Arthur informed the Board that
he sent an emai' to Josh Hetzel of
Ringpower informing him that we do
not intend to pay this month's invoice
and they need to pick it up while it
will still crank and bring us the new
one.
Arthur stated that only one
application was received for the


position for mechanic at the shop;
Xingu "Gue" Higginbotham. There
was some discussion.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to hire Mr. Higginbotham
for the position under supervision of
William Earl Malone, Shop Foreman.
Starting date to be March 6, 2006 and
he will be on the standard probationary
period.
Mr. Bellot discussed a resolution
and recommended that the Board pass
it regarding the formation of the Rural
Planning Organization with other
willing counties in this district. Jordan
Green, Department of Transportation
and Scott Koons, North Central
Florida Regional Planning Council,
are involved in the process.
Commissioner Lamb made the
motion, seconded by Commissioner
Hays and carried to pass a resolution
for the Florida Department of
Transportation, TRIP and RPO that,
Dixie County would like to participate
in. Joey Lander, County Attorney is
to pen the resolution for signature at
the next regular meeting.
Options for the courthouse
renovations submitted to Arthur Bellot
from Paul Stressing Associates, Inc.
were presented to the Board by Mr.
Bellot.
They were reviewed and revised by
the Board. The Board reached a.
mutual decision on the floor plans
with all in favor to proceed.
Commissioner Land left the meeting
at 1:30 PM.
A potential plan to build a three
story annex across the road from the
courthouse was discussed. This is due
to the growing population of the
county and the need for more space for
all of the constitutional officers.
Mr. Charles Kinnard came before
the Board and stated that he has finally
closed on a property in Jena and he
would like to give the county part of it
for a post office and sheriff sub-
station.
The Board stated they have no
objection and appreciates the offer.
Mr. Kinnard is to get with Joey Lander
on the details.
David Osteen stated that someone
has pulled the pilings out at the
Horseshoe boat ramp and there is a
problem with getting in and out due of
the existing boat ramp to the dredging.
Commissioner Valentine stated he
will get with Howard Reed about the
issue but it was supposed to be already
completed.
Arthur Bellot stated that we can
have the Road Department take the
small track hoe down there and clean
it out.
JOEY LANDER, COUNTY
ATTORNEY
Mr. Lander stated he has reviewed
the documents from Drummond Bank
regarding the loans for the Mack
Truck and 2 acres of Land. He
recommended approval.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the loan
documents to be signed by the
Chairman.
Joey announced that his brother,
Lindsey will be coming back and re-
joining the Firm. Lindsey will help
him represent the Dixie County Board
of County Commissioners. Lindsey
will be working out of the house on
the north side of the Courthouse
beside the State Probation Office and
will have the 498-3900 telephone
number.
All members of the Board were
happy to hear the news and expressed
their appreciation of Lindsey's past
work history for the Board.
COMMISSIONER ITEMS
Commissioner Lamb reminded
everyone of Legislative Day on March
29th in Tallahassee and stated that it
would be good for Joey or Lindsey to
attend.
Arthur asked for a firm commitment
from everyone who will be attending
so he could send in reservation fees.
Committing was Commissioner Hays,
Commissioner Driggers,
Commissioner Lamb, Commissioner
Valentine, Clerk Chad Reed, and Joey
or Lindsey Lander.
Commissioner Driggers gave a brief
update on the gasification plant. The
DEP is the holdup.
Commissioner Valentine
commented that he would like to again
ask Chad to consider coming back on'
board to the county emergency
department. No reflection on Jerry.
Martin, but the County faces the
retirement of Arthur Bellot, Billy
Keen, Jack Spivey, Howard Reed and
Jerry Martin within the time frame of
9 months to less than 4 years; and
Chad has the historical knowledge that
we will be losing with some of these
positions.
Commissioner Lamb stated he
thinks the entire Board feels the same;
All agreed.
Clerk Reed stated he appreciated the
comments by the Board and would
consider returning to the Board of
County Commissioners and must take
into consideration what is best for his
family and the county as a whole; and',
also where he can provide the most
services to the citizens.
Clerk Reed stated he had one more
question for the Board and asked if
they have would approve for
distribution of paychecks on Thursday
instead of Friday, if the check can be
cut within the time frame.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried to approve the request.

"School Days...School

Days...Dear Old

Golden Rule Days"


Judge Fred Koberlein displays the box of sampling school registers from
the 1920 to the mid 1940's.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
County Judge, Fred Koberlein and his staff were cleaning the
vault in their office when they came across a box filled with school
bus records and grade books dating as far back as 1920! The
yellowed, fragile record books are a true find and Koberlein hopes
to be able to donate them to the Dixie County Historical Society.
With the names of students listed in the books, Koberlein
thought it best to check with the Department of Education to see if
they could be publicly displayed. The DOE General Council is
looking into the matter and will give Koberlein their decision,
hopefully by the time the Dixie County Cultural Center has its
grand opening this spring. "I would think after a time that such
records would become a historical item and no longer fall under
the confidentiality law," Koberlein said hopefully.
At this time we can't reveal any of the student names, but we
can give you a listing of the school and the teachers found on the
old records which dated as early as 1920 and late as the mid
1940's. Maybe you were in one of these classes.. .or you know of
a family member who was. The following is a sampling of the

Legion "Airs"
The idea behind "Legion Airs" is to 'AIR' the activities of the
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 and Newberry Legion Post 149 and let the
members and folks in this area know about them so they can participate
with LIus.
Newberry American Legion Post 149 meets on the first Tuesday of the
month at 7:00 PM at the Post, Home, 26821 West Newberry Road in
Newberry. This month's meeting will be on April 4th at 7:00 PM, and will
feature a covered dish by the American Legion in appreciation of Unit 149
of the American Legion Auxiliary. So, Auxiliary Unit members, come out
for dinner and you don't have to fix or bring anything! Dinner is on Post
149! The Legion members are asked to bring some favorite side dishes to
share and a short Legion business meeting will follow dinner.
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 in Trenton meets on the third Thursday at
7:00 PM at the Post Home on US-129 five miles north of Trenton. The
Auxiliary Unit meets at the same place and time, with a donation dinner
served from 5:30 until 6:45 PM.. Wednesday, April 12, from 10:00 AM
until around 6:00 PM, TAP Enterprises will have their Tool Sale, so if you
need some tools, this would be the time to look. On Thursday, April 20th,
the Post 91 Legion 'Family' will meet at 7:00 for the regular business
meeting.
At last month's meeting, Post Commander, Shelby McKinney
presented Legionnaire Wilbur Bush with a Fifty-Year Certificate. Wilbur
has fifty continuous years service in the American Legion. When you see
him, congratulate him for his service. Wilbur has held many positions in
Post 91 over the years and the Post is lucky to have had men like him to
keep the Post operating over the years.
Sunday, April 9th, is a National Day of Recognition of Returned
Prisoners of War from all wars. This date coincides with the surrender of
Bataan and April 10th will be the 64th anniversary of the Bataan Death
March. Sometime during that weekend, stop and remember those that
perished and those that survived those terrible times, and thank God that
America has pulled through to give us the best place on this earth to live.
Saturday, April 15th, the Newberry Legion Post 149 is co-sponsoring
a Community Blood Drive in Newberry. The Blood mobile will set up in
front of the City Hall across from Backyard Bar-B-Que in the morning,
then after noon, it will move to Hitchcock's to finish the day.
Due to FDA regulations for protection the Nation's blood supplies,
some veterans cannot donate blood, due to places they were stationed
during certain years or even diseases they may have been exposed to in the
course of their service. These veterans still need blood supplies, and still
want to give blood, but cannot, due to the regulations for a safe blood
supply. These veterans gave for America when America called, now
America can give for these veterans. Donate blood for YOUR Vet! Look
for the big Bloodmobile and stop by the Post 149 table to visit before or
after you donate. Post 149 Legionnaires, if you want to help out at the
table during the Blood Drive, let Wayne Gravely know at the meeting on
Tuesday, April 4th.
Remember the Auxiliary Appreciation Dinner at Post 149 on Tuesday,
April 4th at 7:00 PM. Auxiliary Unit 149 doesn't have to bring or fix
anything or clean up! Come on down!
For God and Country, Wayne Gravely, Acting Sgt-At-Arms
Post 149, Newberry, FL

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met March 23rd at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. The Watermelon quilt is out and Goldie will hem
it at home. The other two will come out soon.
We are asking everyone to come to the Museum April 1st
and help us celebrate ten years of building and running this 50 x
100 log museum. It has been ten wonderful years, we are all ten
years older, but still going strong. We will have refreshments all
day and we are asking anyone who plays Blue Grass and Gospel
music to come out and help us to have a day like we did for the
years we had "Pickin On The Porch".
Many people donated money and felt like the money would
never be used and we had many tell us we would never build
but my Grandpa Poley Horne always said...you always finish
what you start and my mother always said...never buy on credit.
The museum is all paid for and we sell quilts and things to
keep up with lights, gas, telephone, insurance and keeping the
place supplied with paper goods, food and all the many things it
takes to keep it up.
We are currently writing the history of the museum. Included
in that history we talk about Lancaster Correctional with Jarrod
Jones, Greg Staley and other officers who have worked with the
more than 800 inmates who were a big part of the building and
helping to keep the museum looking so great.
So, come out and visit with the Log Cabin quilters and see
what can be done when people tell you, "You will never build
anything because you don't know how." They were right, we
did it anyway with the help of the Lord, those who donated, and
those who worked and believed in us. We thank you all! 20

Spa Menu

If I had the ability to bless each woman in
the world, I think I would send them all off to
one gigantic spa retreat. You know the place where the terry cloth robes
are thick and soft, the staff waits on you hand and foot and fabulous,
relaxing treatments like massages, facials and luxuriant pedicures await
you.
Look no further. True, I can't exactly stuff one of those robes in this
column, nor will a facialist suddenly appear to extract your blackheads
and make your face glow in the comfort of your living room.
What I can offer you however is some incredibly delectable food.
The kind a lavish spa would offer beautifully prepared and artfully
presented. The kind of food you can actually make yourself and feel
pampered simply by the joy of eating it.
In a spa setting the food is exquisitely prepared with attention to each
feature. The clever detail in the actual presentation itself is what makes
the traditionally very low-calorie food look like so much more.
So come to the spa and invite a few friends this enticing menu plays
well for an elegant dinner party.

By Skye L. Lambert
Suwannee Postmaster
We Deliver Your

Tax Dollars,
We Don't Spend

Them!
:Come Tax Night, The
Postal ServiceTM Will Be On
Your Side ...twice.
First, we appreciate your
business 365 days a year. We
welcome the opportunity to
help you fulfill your mission -
whether it's paying your
monthly bills, sharing your
love with family and friends,
using the mail to increase your
customer base and profit
margin, or paying your taxes.
Your local postal employees
are glad to be able to help.
Second, while we will
accept your tax payments,
handle them with care, and
safeguard them through to
delivery, one thing we won't
do is spend them. Your Postal
Service is financed by the sale
of its products and services.
The only funds the Postal
Service receives are
reimbursements by Congress
to provide free mail for the
blind and to keep certain
postage rates for non-profit
and other qualifying
organizations below cost.
More than 30 years ago,
the federal government
performed one of the first
successful "extreme
makeovers." Congress and the
President transformed the two-
centuries-old Post Office
Department into the U.S.
Postal Service, a new
organization with a new
mandate: to operate on a


break-even basis, without
taxpayer subsidies.
That change has been
largely successful. Today, your
Postal Service is the world's
largest and most productive
postal system, with mailing
rates that are among the lowest
in the industrialized world.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right
to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 01/11/06 show that our system
exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts which includes both Total
Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids(HAA5). The standards for TTHMs and HAA5 are 80 and 60 micrograms per
liter (ug/L), respectively. The average level of THMs and HAA5 over the last year was 545.5 ug/l and 340ug/l respectively.
The standard for HaloaceticAcids is .060mg/l. The level of Haloacetic Acids was found at .134 mg/1.
What should I do?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of
childbearing age may wish to seek alternative water sources. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs can
choose alternative sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated by an appropriate home water
treatment device, until we correct the problem. Appropriate home water treatment devices are those certified by NSF for reducing
DBPs in drinking water.
Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their
liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over may years may have an increased risk of getting
cancer.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water and creates the Disinfection Byproduct.
What is being done?
The Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & The Department of Environmental Protection to resolve
this issue. We anticipate resolving this issue within the next 12 months.
For more information, please contact C.M. Odom @ (352) 498-3967 or Sheila Brown @ (352) 498-5234 Horseshoe Beach Utilities,
P.O. Box 158, Horseshoe Beach, FL 32648.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this
notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this
notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by Horseshoe Beach Utilities. State Water System ID#: 2150512

Portions Of The Hickory Mound

Unit Remain Closed For

Improvements
Access to the impoundment on the Hickory Mound Unit of the
Big Bend Wildlife Management Area in Taylor County remains
closed for repair and improvements, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officials.
The FWC closed the impoundment in April 2005 for
improvements to the dike. In July 2005, Hurricane Dennis caused
extensive damage to the dike. As a result, workers suspended:
construction until after hurricane season. According to officials,
construction should be complete in June, and the impoundment
will reopen as soon as possible thereafter.
Closed roads include portions of Coker Road (south from the
junction of Swartz Tram) and Cow Creek Grade (south from the
junction of Swartz Tram). Signs and gates are in place on areas
closed to public access. It may be necessary to close the portion
of Swartz Tram temporarily between Cow Creek Grade and Coker
Road if safety becomes an issue with the high volume of heavy
equipment traffic, officials said.
"The reconstruction of the impoundment dike is designed to
allow this structure to withstand a 50-year storm by drastically
reducing the number of breaches that have occurred in the past,"
explained David Nicholson, district biologist at the FWC Big Bend
Field Office in Perry.
Major portions of the construction project will include
installation of two 1,000-foot concrete geoweb spillways, four 5-
foot by 5-foot box culverts, one aluminum water control structure,
and placement of approximately 8,672 tons of rip-rap material to
reinforce the dike in areas that have been susceptible to storm
erosion in the past. Plans also include additional armoring of the
dike in areas damaged by Hurricane Dennis.
"Ultimately, these upgrades will allow biologists to have better
control over the flow of water into and out of the impoundment,
allowing FWC staff to manage better for waterfowl and other
wildlife species. This increased management ability should allow
for higher quality recreational opportunities in the future,"
Nicholson said.
According to Nicholson, this project is being funded by FWC,
Ducks Unlimited, Taylor County, the National Fish and Wildlife
Foundation and a North American Wetlands Conservation Act
grant.
"We realize this property is a high use area for crabbers,
fisherman, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts. As such, we
regret the inconvenience that our users have to endure, but we hope
the improvements will outweigh these short-term inconveniences,"
Nicholson said.
