Dixie SO Makes Arrest In

Armed Robbery Case
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Sheriff's
arrested a Cross City man
connected to an armed robbery
that occurred on April 15th at
approximately 3:40am in the
Foodland parking lot.
The victims of this armed
robbery were from South
Carolina and were traveling ,
through Cross City. They had
pulled into the parking lot to
check the headlights on their
van when a car pulled up along
side the couple's vehicle. A
black male, later identified as .
Richard Jenkins allegedly got Richard Jenkins
out and approached the
couples' vehicle pointing a pistol at the driver, demanding his
money and his wife's pocket book before driving off.
Jenkins is currently being held on a $100,000.00 bond in the
Dixie County Jail. He was charged with one count of Armed
Robbery.

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Cross City's Chief of Police Wesley Jones and City Manager
Mike Cassidy announced today that the new truck route will
open on Monday, May 1st and will be enforced along with the
help of the Florida Highway Patrol and Florida Department of
Transportation.
The new route will deter truck traffic from CR 351 to 351-A
and from US 19 to 351-A. There will be NO traffic allowed on
Chavous.
Cassidy noted that letters have been sent to area trucking and
lumber companies, notifying them of the changes so they can
pass it along to their drivers. While there will be a short
adjustment time given to drivers, law enforcement officials
stated they will be stopping violators. "This is a matter of
safety," stated Chief Jones.
Heavy truck traffic in the downtown area and school zones
has been a concern of the city, county and school system for
years and they feel detouring the truck traffic from these areas is
one way to ensure a safer roadway for all.
It was with their recommendation that the re-routing of the
trucks go into effect before the new 4-way stop signs are
implemented, which will come online in the next several weeks.
"By doing so, we are already eliminating a large portion of the
traffic in these areas," stated Cassidy.
Chief Jones noted that it is hoped that by re-routing the truck
traffic to 351-A chances of the F.D.O.T. approving a traffic light
at the intersection of US 19 and 351-A will increase. "We are
still actively working on resolving the safety issues at that
particular intersection," stated Jones. "We haven't given up on
getting that light and promise to continue to fight that battle until
we get it," he added.


Truckers please beware of the new signs posted along US 19 and
County Road 351 advising of the new truck route.

Is The Suwannee River

Safe From The South?
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
For years rumors of South Florida looking north for a supply of
water have kept local officials, conservationists, and residents on
edge. Recently this issue has resurfaced as the Suwannee River
Water Management District (SRWMD) prepares to file their
Minimum Flow Level (MFL) findings with the state. For some,
they see this as the final step in preparation for Suwannee's water
to'be sold to the highest bidder.
Stan Meeks, conservationist and one of the founders of the
,Suwannee Reef Organization feels that the Suwannee's waters are
indeed in danger of being pilfered by the over developed South
Florida. Many feel the same as Meeks and have sent out an S.O.S.,
so to speak, in order to get the word out that residents of the
Suwannee Basin aren't going to let that happen.
S.In a phone interview with SRWMD Resource Management
Director Jon Dinges, Dinges assured me that this was not the case.
"It is not the intent or purpose of the SRWMD to sell water.
Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, directs the SRWMD to establish
minimum flows and levels and to implement a permitting system
to allocate water for reasonable and beneficial use," stated Dinges.
"Water is a public resource and SRWMD is the trustee of that
resource," he added.
Meeks' concern stems from a state mandate that has ordered
the water districts throughout Florida to set a Minimum Flow
Level. The one that SRWMD will be filing on May 14th for the
Suwannee River is 10% below the historical Minimum Flow
Levels. "Why are we stopping at the lowest levels rather than
reaching for the highest levels when it concerns the Suwannee's
waters," stated Meeks
According to Dinges, minimum flows and levels are the point
below which significant harm will occur to the water resources or
ecology. Historic flows are well above the minimum at a point
.where little or no harm occurs. However, SRWMD were directed
to set a minimum flow level by the mandate.
Dinges stated that during the study for the MFL, the district
:took into account many scenarios, such as levels changing during
the time of drought. "We studied what water levels would be
:needed for fish to spawn, for canoes to paddle up river, etc."

Shired Island
Park To Close
Commissioner James
Valentine stated that the Shired
Island Park will be closed for the
weekend of May 5 & 6 to
accommodate the handicapped
participants and sponsors of the
Wheelin Sportsmen Event. All
others are asked to please use
the Horseshoe Beach Park that
weekend.
This is an annual fishing
event that gives handicapped an
opportunity to enjoy the
outdoors and Dixie's wonderful
coast.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
While Dixie County doesn't have a famous mouse or whale or even a giant roller coaster, we do
have some beautiful parks for those family outings and boat ramps that lead the way to the Gulf and
Suwannee River waters.
It has been the goal of the County Commissioners to make sure that Dixie's residents have pafks
and boat ramp facilities that are safe and that complement the beauty of the area. Of course the
matter of funding projects to enhance the parks that are already in place as well as funding for the
upkeep of the parks and boat ramps has always been a challenge.
County Coordinator, Arthur Bellot has been able to secure a number of state grants over the
years that have made the Commissioner's goals a reality. Just recently the Turner Point Boat Ramp
& Park was completed, bringing the old boat ramp to star status with a floating dock, restrooms, and
picnic area, parking and playground. Hinton Landing just received a much needed canal dredging
and plans for improvements at the Joe Anderson Park are in the works.
Each week the Advocate will highlight the parks and boat ramps in each of the four districts they
are located. This week District 5 takes the spotlight. Commissioner James Valentine stated that he
hopes to be adding a new boat ramp in Jena to the list in the near future.
See a list of all the County Park and Boat Ramps on page 5, and be looking for District 3
highlights next week.

Three bucks a gallon...and beyond?
The price of petrol at the pump appears well on its way past the
three dollar a gallon mark, fueling an inflationary cycle which will
impact adversely on working class Americans. Congress and the
Bush administration are belatedly showing some signs of concern,
:but we can only hope that this amounts to more than political
grandstanding and partisan bickering.
When Hurricane Katrina tore up New Orleans last year, it
.messed up some refining facilities, and recovery took awhile.
During that time, the price of gas hit well over three dollars a
gallon, but eased back down below $2.25 as recently as this past
February, and with no hurricanes even anticipated for at least
,'another month, the hurricane rationale seems rather far-fetched.
For that matter, it seems to me that hurricanes have been
pummeling the Gulf and Atlantic coasts since long before we had
an economy that responded to the availability of oil, and for many
years since petrol became a major factor. Yet, only during the 2005
hurricane season has this natural phenomenon been blamed for a
*meteoric rise in the price of motor fuel.
Absent a hurricane to blame, we're hearing that the "unrest" in
Iran is making investors nervous, and this is causing the price of
oil to go up. Well, Iran has been "unrestful" at least since 1979, at
which time the Carter administration responded to an act of war
(taking hostages from our embassy) with nothing better than a
-.botched rescue attempt.
Another reason we're hearing is the growing market for oil in
.places like China and India. All right, plenty of people in those
countries, but how many do your suppose have' anything that uses
gasoline for transportation? And of those who do, how many more
drive mopeds, rather than gas-guzzling vans, motor homes, SUV's
or 4WD pickups? Just because "customer service" doesn't speak
good English, or you can't find a DVD player made in the USA
doesn't mean the people employed in manufacturing and services
on the other side of the Pacific are making union scale.
So, should government get involved? Can't the free market
economy handle the problem? Certainly, it would be better that
way, since government is not at its best when regulating the
economy. However, when things really get out of hand,
government involvement might be the lesser evil.
A little over a century ago, Theodore Roosevelt understood this,
Sand promoted anti-trust legislation that impacted significantly upon
SStandard Oil. In the 1940s, another Roosevelt, FDR, used rationing
and price controls to keep the price of petrol from escalating during
SWorld War II; and let us not lose sight of the fact that, at war's
end, gasoline prices remained stable, even in the absence of
rationing or shortages.
A little over two years ago (March 11, 2004), I wrote a column
Expressing concern that the price of gas was "rapidly approaching
two dollars a gallon." We are now experiencing an increase of (at
least) 50% in two years, and approaching 35% in just the past two
2 months.


We've been hearing a lot about how crude oil is now hovering
around $75.00 a barrel. Be that as it.may, there is no such thing as
a consistent price of motor fuel. Right here in the good old U.S. of
SA., the price of petrol at the pump varies from $2.46 a gallon in
rural Wyoming to over four bucks a gallon in Beverly Hills.
Internationally, our figures are 2 years old, but in May of 2004 gas
cost 14 cents a gallon in Venezuela, and $5.64 in Great Britain.
The British government taxes petrol to the hilt, and no doubt
their price has gone up in the last two years. Venezuela produces a
lot of oil and keeps the price at rock-bottom for the locals. But we
produce a lot of oil, too (and we could produce a lot more if we
could get the environmental whackos out of the way), the point
being that governments can and do exert a considerable measure of
control over the price of petrol to the consumer, regardless of what
' price crude is bringing on Wall Street.
Is anybody in Washington listening?


Letter to the Editor
Happy Earth Day
Dear Friend,
From the Everglades to our scenic beaches, the northern forests
to the coral reefs just off the coast throughout Florida many of
the most beautiful, biologically diverse and endangered natural
wonders are found.
Today is Earth Day, a day that reminds us that we must fight to
make it possible for our grandkids to experience the beauty that is
unique to our great state of Florida. We must fight to protect the
treasures that attract the millions of visitors to Florida each year
and provide the backbone of our economy treasures that are vital
to a sustainable future for Florida. We need them to preserve the
quality of our water and the air we breathe, and to serve as nature's
defense against hurricanes and other natural catastrophes.
To celebrate this Earth Day, the Rod Smith Campaign
encourages all Floridians to get active get involved in your
community to protect all the natural wonders throughout Florida.
One place to start is Earthday.org, where you can find Earth Day
events in your area and specific actions that each of us can do to
fight for the environment.
So, whether it's planting a tree, going for a hike with your
family, or attending an event don't forget to celebrate Earth Day
2006.
Sincerely,
Paul Neaville-Campaign Manager
Rod Smith for Governor

Seniors Take Action To Ensure Personal Security


(NAPS)-Many older
Americans are taking steps
to help secure their personal
safety and security, especially
as they balance the desire for
independence with the chal-
lenges of declining health.
The good news is that crime
rates affecting older Amer-
icans are actually lower than
they may seem. The U.S.
Department of Justice reports
that the number of violent
crimes has decreased during
the last decade.
The even better news is
that, by taking a few simple
safety precautions, seniors
can reduce their risk and
increase their sense of secu-
rity in their daily lives.
Check door locks. Replace
any nonfunctioning or poorly
installed locks. Make sure that
your garage is equipped with
a sturdy lock as well.
Install exterior lighting. A
well-lit home can deter night-
time break-ins.
Make your house look occu-
pied. When you're out of town,
use light timers to mimic your
normal routine. Cancel news-
paper and mail delivery, so that
papers don't pile up outside.
Know your neighbors. Keep
neighbors' phone numbers
near your phone with emer-
gency information. Inform
neighbors of your travel plans
and any scheduled deliver--
ies or home maintenance:
appointments.
Install an alarm. Security
companies offer a wide range
of alarm options, including
systems that provide medical
alert services.
Stay safe on the street.
Always walk in well-lit areas.
Ask a friend to accompany




Graduation Gifts
(NAPS)-For graduates
and their families, gradua-
tion day marks a unique
moment in time: a celebra-
tion of years passed, while
looking forward to the end-
less possibilities of the count-
less hours that lay ahead.
For this reason, many find
timepieces to be an especially
meaningful graduation gift.
And what better way to pre-
pare the wearer for future
challenges than with a watch
that will make the journey
without scratching, denting
or showing the marks of time?











A classic watch has re-
emerged just in time to be
a timeless graduation gift.
The watch known\as The
Original-a reinforced, reju-
venated and enhanced ver-
sioin of the original Rado
DiaStar-has an oval face and
clean lines, for a young and
stylish look in a hard metal
casing. The bracelet is broader
and more comfortable, the
face presents an extremely
readable dial and the watch
is water-resistant to 100
meters. Plus, the watch
recently received the presti-
gious red dot product design
award for outstanding design
quality from the German
Design Centre.

rado.com or call 1-800-283-
7236.


you or tell someone where
you're going.
Neighborhood involvement
is another key to deterring
crime on a street or block.
Seniors who want to protect
their homes and help raise
awareness in the community
can join neighborhood watch
groups. Those interested in
forming a group can contact the
National Association of Town
Watch (www.NationalTown
Watch.org) for information.
Don't let fear of crime get
you down. "When seniors feel
unsafe, they may begin to
withdraw from normal activ-
ities," said Scott Perry, exec-
utive vice president and chief
operating officer of Bankers
Life and Casualty Company,
an insurance company that
specializes in the senior mar-
ket. "Over time, fear and
reduced activity can lead to
feelings of social isolation and
depression."
Perry's company, a national
life and health insurer spe-
cializing in the insurance needs
of seniors, encourages seniors
to recognize security issues
and take steps to feel safe in
their homes and communities.

Letter From

The Editor
Due to a number of
inaccurate claims being made
in recent Letters to the Editor,
we have made a decision at the
Advocate to either edit or
refuse to print letters that are
just trying to make someone
look bad because you feel that
they have wronged you in
some way.
Please note, Letters to the
Editor need to be factual not
just your side of the story.
We truly respect your
opinion, but we really need to
hear both sides of the story, rot
just yours.
Please keep this in mind for
future Letters to the Editor.

Retraction Of A

Letter To The

Editor
Last week I made the
accusation that Old Town
Equipment Rental had unfairly
treated the Audley's in the
rental of a wood chipper. That
statement was untrue, and for
that I sincerely apologize.
The company that the
chipper was rented from was
Tri-County Rental in
Chiefland.
The fault was entirely mine
and I pray that Kevin of Old
Town Equipment Rental can
forgive me. Their phone
number is 542-633.

CORRECTION
In the April 20, 2006 issue of the Dixie County Advocate, the
"JAIL LOG" stated that Billy Wayne Fowler was arrested for
"Hold For Ohio On A. Warrant". This was incorrect. Mr. Fowler
does not have an Ohio warrant issued on him. We regret this
misprint and apologize to Mr. Fowler.

"WATER"
Continued from front page


North Florida's waters, agrees. "I would like to see a higher
flow set as well, but I am proud that we are finally acting on a
mandate that was set by the legislature in 1972," Argenziano
stated.
In addition to the Chapter 373 statue, Argenziano was author
and instrumental in getting another "safety net", the "Local
Sources First" passed in 1999. What this statue provides is a
guideline that must be followed before looking to other
communities' sources of water. It states that ALL economically
and technically feasible alternatives to the proposed source,
including, but not limited to, desalination, conservation, reuse of
non-potable reclaimed water and stormwater, and aquifer storage
and recovery must be looked at first. This statue stopped the
Tampa/St. Pete area from getting Suwannee water several years
back.
Afgenziano backed up Dinges's statement that SRWMD did
not have the authority to sell water. She also stated that while
these two statues are in place now, we need to stay vigilant in
making sure that they stay in place and that we make the
adjustments necessary to keep our waters safe.
"I have nothing but the utmost respect for Stan Meeks," stated
Argenziano. "I depend on folks like Stan to keep me informed of
what is happening; his input is critical," she added.
Meeks stated that the Suwannee River is the fertility of the area
and we must not let it down.
. With Dixie County feeling growing pains of their own, the
Suwannee and Gulf waters are sure to feel the stress as well. As a
community that depends on its pristine waters and woodlands for
ecotourism we have yet another reason to protect our environment.
The Big Bend area is the'last .of Florida's frontier; once it is
gone we won't be able to go back. With continued support from
our local and stated elected officials, conservationists, SRWMD,
and residents we should be able to keep the Suwannee safe from
the south.

New Prospect Baptist News
Another beautiful Sunday in church...another blessing in the
opportunity to worship our Lord and Savior. What a privilege it
was to be there, as our choir praised God in song, and afterwards
as Bro. Billy brought God's messages, reminding all of the
supreme sacrifice of Jesus, God's only Son. During the evening
service, Bro. Jody Mayo blessed us with a special song, doing a
fine job in the process.
Please don't forget the Men's Rally on Friday, May 5th. We're
also looking forward to our annual Homecoming on Sunday, May
7th, a great day of celebration, fellowship, and food for members
old and new, as well as our friends. Our own Bro. Billy Robson
will deliver the Homecoming message, and Southland Quartet will
supply the day's worship in song, so we're looking for a great day!
You're invited to visit and worship with us anytime at New
Prospect...we welcome you! Have a good week, and remember to
be in prayer for those on the prayer lists, as well as our people in
the armed forces and our nation's leaders. Nla. God bless 'ou and
yours.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
The Day of the Lord.
The word church means that which is called out. Church is not a brick or board
building, but it is a people (The Day of the Lord) that has been called of God. They
are not just called, but they are called out.
Gen. 12:1 Now the Lord has said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and
from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto the land that I will shew thee:
Abraham was a called outer.
: Exo. 12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought
forth from Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had4they prepared for themselves any
victual.
SWhen the children of Israel departed out of Egypt they gathered up their dough
before it was leavened for they did not have time to leaven it, because they were
thrust out of Egypt and could not tarry. If they had not been thrust out of Egypt they
would have had time to leaven their dough.
First Cor. 5:6,7,8 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven
teaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, neither with the
leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and
truth.
i The spiritual meaning for unleavened bread is to live a life that is free of the
corruptingg influence of sin and the flesh. As long as the sons of God (Church) are
pressing on their way out of Egypt, their bread doesn't have time for leavening to
set in and their life is free from the things of the flesh (carnally mindedness).
SLet a person stop and linger behind and lose his vision.and think of the good
bId days when he was in Egypt (Things of the carnal mind), and leaven will start
it's work in his or her life.
There is only one way a person can keep the leaven of malice and wickedness
from working in his life, and that is to be like a stream of water that is kept clean
and fresh by flowing. When water is in a pit or a dammed up place where it cannot
flow, it will breed corruption and become stagnated and will not be good for
anything, this is the same way it is with our life. If we don't keep on the move for
God, the river of living water that Jesus said would flow out of their bellies will
kepome stagnated and not good for people to drink.
S' There are three calls: The first was out of Egypt when God purged the things of
the flesh out of us, the second was when God called us out of the.wilderness and
pu'ged the soulish (feminine) things out of us, the third call is when he purged the
things of the spirit (and this one is masculine) out of us.
When you have finished these three calls, the called out of the called out of the


palled out, you have become a part of the himself company, Sonship takes you into
fatherhood and fatherhood takes you into the logas of God.
I Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God
was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, believed on in the
world, received up into glory.
Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.
For God's will to be done in earth, it will first to be in heaven (God's heaved
up church.)
, There will be a people that He will work His will into. The knowledge of the
Lord shall fill all the earth as the waters cover the sea. The day of the Lord, God's
army, will be the living waters that shall flow over the earth. The heaven must
retain Christ until the restitution of all things.
Revelation 12:7,8 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought
against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and precailed not; neither
w4s their place found any more in heaven.
His will must be done in heaven first. You will never have a righteous earth
until you have a righteous heaven. God's judgement must start at the house of the
Lord. (Church) When the heavens are clean, then shall the kingdoms of this world
become the kingdom of our Lord. When God has worked fully His will into heaven,
(His Church) then will He work His will in the earth.
John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me,
and to finish his work.
Jesus was the day of God and His many-membered body will be the day of the
Lord in the ends of the ages. Continued next week.

Abundant Life

& Living
By Lucille Stockton
St. John 10:10 (KJV) Jesus said, He
came that we might have life and .....
have it more abundantly. MORE:
meaning more than we ever had
before. Abundantly; the cup runs
over, with plenty of life. Thanks God
for Jesus. "LIVE" love life, live life,
praise life, respect life, magnify life, radiate life. Don't use precious
energy getting ready to die. Death is already prepared. The human family
should use all the precious energy we have getting ready to live. It takes a
lot of preparation planning, converting, practicing, and programing the
mind to thank life and living. We don't have to do one thing to die. The
greedy jaws of death is ready and willing to swallow us up.
Pray and ask God to teach us how to maintain these magnificent
beautiful bodies he gave to us. Be willing to work harder at trying to live,
than preparing to die. Teach life, talk life, wherever you are exemplify life,
on your job, in a congregation, in your home, traveling, at the mall, at the
beach, shopping, with friends or with business associates. Thank God For
Jesus. Pray thy Kingdom come, on earth. Be assured death is ready and
waiting.
"Love Life and Live It."

In Memory of Janet Cooper
We, the family of Janet
Cooper would like to thank
everyone for the love you
showed during the illness and
passing of our loved one. We
especially want to thank
Debbie and Melanie from the
bottom of our, hearts for .*
standing by mama and me
during these hard times.
We also want to say a
special thank you to Aunt
Vicki for coming and helping
Papa, Granny and Me care for Janet Cooper
Mama's needs during the last
three months. We also want you to know the food, cards, flowers,
those who phoned and the donations to the various organizations in
mama's name have been a comfort and a blessing to all of us.
There were just so many of you we could not begin to name all of
you. May God bless you. Please continue to keep us in your
prayers.

Calvary Temple News

"Two Special Services"
The family of Calvary invites you to attend "two" special
services on Sunday, April 30th at 10:30 a.m. & 7:00 p.m. with
Evangelist David Piper. David has a most unusual ministry in that
the Lord uses him wonderfully in the area of praying for the sick.
David's child-like faith somehow seems to touch the heart of God
and many very unusual and amazing things often occur in his
services, things such as miracles as well as progressive healings.
Nothing is too hard for God! We encourage you to attend -
receive prayer of faith and take your healing testimony back to
your home church. You have absolutely nothing to lose and
possibly much to gain. Does your home church believe in
miracles? Miracles by chance, or miracles in response to prayer?
Your future could depend on the answer. Hope to see you in
church! Pastor Hurst.

Airboat-Muffler

Education

Campaign

Continues

Florida airboat owners
have a few more months to
ensure their crafts have
automotive-style mufflers
installed on the boats' engine
exhausts.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) approved
the enforcement protocol last
year, effective June 30, 2006.
An education campaign for
airboat owners will continue
through June 30. After that
date, FWC officers have the
option to issue written
warnings or citations for
failure to use the appropriate
muffling devices.
Registered airboat owners
in Florida should have
received a letter and brochure
Explaining in detail the law
enforcement protocol -
airboats must have automotive-
style mufflers or a muffling
system designed and installed
to abate exhaust sounds and
gases emitted from an internal
combustion engine. Anyone
who has yet to receive a letter
and brochure, or who needs
additional copies, should call
Brian Rehwinkel at (850) 488-
5600 or e-mail him at
brian.rehwinkel @MyFWC.co
m.
State law requires vessels'
engine exhaust to be muffled
effectively in a reasonable
manner. Individual counties
may enact additional
ordinances to restrict vessel
sound to 90 decibels at 50 feet.
Researchers examined
sound levels from different
styles of mufflers -- including
exhaust and intake manifold
mufflers and differing
propeller designs -- at various
operating speeds and distances
from an observer. They
determined that several
components, when used
together, could provide the
needed incremental
improvements to reduce
airboat sound levels
significantly. They include
mufflers, wide-blade propellers
and prop-speed reduction.
Historically, "flex-pipe"
(flexible tubing that diverts
engine exhaust behind the
boat) has been widely accepted
as a reasonable device for
muffling sound. Newly
released scientific research
reveals flex-pipe does not meet
Florida's muffling
requirements.
"Your Guide to Safe and
Courteous Airboat Operation,"
a brochure included with the
letter, discusses additional
methods to further reduce
sound levels and includes the
Airboater Code of Ethics, tips
on courtesy and proper outdoor
stewardship.


Jumping Fish Injures

Boat Passenger
A Saturday outing on the Suwannee River took an unexpected,
turn when a large fish jumped into a boat, striking the passenger in
the face.
Dawn E. Poirer, 31, of Kenneth City, and Johnston R. Staples
III, 39, of St. Petersburg Beach, were traveling south on the
Suwannee River near Bell, in Gilchrist County, when the 3-foot
fish jumped into the boat, striking Poirer. Staples wasn't injured.
The fish was possibly a sturgeon, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) investigators.
Staples took Poirer to a nearby residence, and the homeowner
called 911. Poirer was transported by helicopter to Shands Hospital
in Gainesville.
The 1996 19-foot Summerford vessel sustained approximately
$1,000 in damages to the rear seat and motor cowling.

Manatees Disperse As

Weather Warms
With winter's chill slipping into the past and Florida's waters
warming up, manatees have begun leaving the state's warm-water
springs and discharge areas in search of grass beds and other
coastal habitats.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) is cautioning boaters, who also increase in numbers this
time of year, to watch out for manatees around grass beds and in
posted boater speed zones. The FWC advises boaters to wear
polarized sunglasses, and post a lookout to watch the path of their
vessels for oval swirls of water (a typical sign of manatee
presence) or a manatee nose, back or tail breaking the surface.
Manatees are particularly vulnerable this time of year when
they become more active and leave protected waters established at
their winter refuges. Over the next few months, manatees will
migrate many hundred of miles along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
More information about manatees is available online at
MyFWC.com/manatee.

2005 Boating Accident Statistical

Report Available
Florida saw boating deaths rise in 2005 to the highest number
reported in 10 years.
The majority of the increase was victims falling overboard,
according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) newly released 2005 Boating Accident
Statistical Report.
Eighty people lost their lives in 69 incidents last year, a 15
percent increase from 2004.
"We are very concerned about the upward trend in boating
fatalities," said FWC Capt. Richard Moore, Florida's boating law
administrator. "Especially given the fact the vast majority of these
are easily preventable.
"Paying attention to what's going on around your boat is very
important, since many accidents are the result of a collision with
another vessel or fixed object."
In 2005, falls overboard increased 53 percent over the previous
year, resulting in 29 incidents and 30 victims. Of those victims, 79
percent of fatal falls overboard involved an open motorboat or
some other small, unstable craft.
Additionally, 69 percent of fatal falls overboard occurred on
calm, inland waters; 93 percent of the victims drowned (63 percent
of those reportedly could swim); none of the drowning victims
were wearing or using a life jacket, and 53 percent were at least 51
years old.
"As for the deaths," Moore said, "the simple arct of wearing a
life jacket is your best insurance on the water. Our stats show that
it's mostly swimmers who are drowning when they unexpectedly
end up in the water."
Sandy Morone and Gay Kite of Ocala outlived their sons, who
drowned in a boating accident Dec. 19, 2004 on Half Moon Lake
in the Ocala National Forest. Their sons, Allan Michael Morone,
22, and John Edward Ray, 23, failed to wear life vests. Their
bodies were not recovered for more than a week.
"You don't think it will happen to you," Morone said. "You
think it will happen to someone else. I'm living, but I'm not living
the same way."
Kite agrees with Morone on the importance of wearing a life
vest.
"I do know, as a mother who has lost her son, these accidents
can be prevented," she said.
The report documents statistics for each county, including the
number of accidents separated by type of vessel; number of
registered vessels for each county, accidents by time of month and
day, cause of incident, operator education and various other
information.
The report is available online through the FWC Web site at
www.MyFWC.com.

This week our Dixie Sighting takes a look at one of the few historical buildings left in Dixie
County, the way it looks today.. .and the way it looked in the past.
The top picture is of the Dixie County, County Coordinator arid Extension Agent office located
next to Bank of America on the corner of NE 121st Street (Leon St. & Barber Ave.). Showing off the
freshly painting building is Arthur Bellot-County Coordinator. Bellot noted that the 1920's building
also received new soffit, additional lighting, landscaping and parking stripes.
Bellot would like to thank the County's Building Crew Edward Johnson, Charles Allen and
Buddy Walker along with their Supervisor Howard Reed for all the hard work they put into sprucing
up the old building. In addition he sent out a special "thank-you" to the inmate crew from Cross City
Correctional and Officers Padgett & Underhill. It's looks great!
Prior to becoming a county office in 2000, the historical building was the home of the Dixie
County Public Library, Family Medical Practice, numerous doctors' offices, and the Dixie County
State Bank.
The black and white photo shown above was sent to us, courtesy of Carol West, whose
grandfather J.M. McKinney, Sr. and father, J.M. McKinney, Jr. and Uncle Norris McKinney were
major stockholders of the bank for many years until the mid 1980's. Norris has a copy of the banks'
original corporation papers that show it being incorporated in May of 1925 with J.A. Scales as the
main shareholder.
Carolyn Jones, author of the Advocate's "Do You Remember" column shared some of her
memories of the old bank this week with us (see page 3B). If you have any memories to share,
please drop us a line.
The Dixie County Advocate is actively seeking unique information for the Dixie County Sightings
column. Call or send your Sightings IN DIXIE COUNTY, to 352-498-3312 or email the picture and
information to news@dcadvocate.net.

Have You Seen The Deer?

The sixty-day legislative
session is nearing its close and
funding has been secured for
courthouse facilities in several
rural counties in Florida
according to State Senator Rod
Smith (D-Alachua). Budget
conferees met throughout the
weekend in Tallahassee and
reached a final agreement on
several issues, including
funding levels for several
small county courthouse
projects, on Monday evening.
Senator Smith announced
that Dixie County has secured
$200,000 for courthouse
facility improvements. We've

"Having personally tried cases
as a prosecutor in many rural
courthouses, including the one
right here in Dixie County, I
know that we have some very
real facility needs and
recognize that it is difficult for


many rural counties and those

Levy County
Quilt Museum
Lob Cabin Quilters met
Thursday April 20"' at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Another busy day with quilting
and what ever. Karen
Ardendell has finished her first
two learning projects and
today she quilted on one of the
big quilts. She started with
pillow covers, then went to a
small baby quilt. She is now
ready to get on to quilting on a
frame. Her work is great and
she has really come a long
way. She drives from Live Oak
and comes as often as she can.
We have had the lumber
and what we need to rebuild a
gazebo in the front yard. We
had money donated in memory
and we decided what we would
do. We have lots of plans and
had to divide where it would
go, and now to get it built. Kim
Skelton will be doing the work
with the help from the inmates
at Lancaster. Reminds me of
when we started the museum,
not really knowing what to do
but we all learned as we went
along. Come by and visit to see
how it will be done.
Greg and five boys went
out Tuesday to do all the great


things they do. Thanks
Lancaster.
Lunch was so good sweet
and sour hot dogs, onion


casserole, cheese and mac, lots
more with strawberry dessert
and more.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2006


o gou nemeniber?7
By Carolyn Jones
Elizabeth Cassidy you remembered. The
original building that sat on the south end of the
block, now occupied by the Drummond Bank,
was Slaughter's Store. It was an old, dark,
unpainted wooden building, with no windows
and a narrow door that you had to almost climb
up into. At least, as a very small child, that is the
way it appeared to me. There was one step at the
entrance and that was a very large hand hewn
log, which presented an obstacle to my short legs.
The inside of the store was dark and dank, and
smelled of smoked meat and other items. I think
that is why my mother stopped there briefly, to
buy smoked bacon. Yes back then everybody ate
and seasoned vegetables with ham or bacon.
On the north side of that block was the Sam
Chavous home. He was our sheriff at the time. I
was more impressed with his daughter Roma that
I thought was so pretty.
Continuing north toward the Courthouse, Mr.
Will Chavous lived and worked where the
"Advocate" and attorney Robert Moeller' office
are today. In my early childhood I recall several
other small businesses located on that block, all
of which were constructed by Mr. Chavous. Dr.
Anderson had a small office there that wasn't
Used very much due to the fact that he was out
-. delivering babies most of the time. Mom and Pop
SHart had a small restaurant, family style, for a short
'inie. Remember, it was,during the "Depression"
and people couldn't afford to eat out. I recall
.going with my family to eat there one time. It
,was my dad's way of showing support and
-. encouragement to friends and neighbors.
The United Christian Services building now
: occupies the north end of the same block that was
' also owned by Mr. Chavous. He constructed a
nice building intended to be a pharmacy but
p never quite made it as a pharmacy. Instead, it
became a sundries shop with a fountain serving
ice cream and coke. Many times my brother,
SGene or friends and I would get a few pennies or
a nickel and run down to "Gilley's" as we named
'it. Mr. Gilley ran the sundries store and always
greeted us with a big smile and treated us as
Important customers.
Remember there were not too many
customers in those days. We spent time looking
at all the jars of candy on display, but always
ended up choosing Silver Bells. I think we
figured out they were the best buy. Mr. Gilley
Should reach into the Silver Bells jar, not
: bothering to count out the correct number, and
then place our purchase in a brown paper bag. He
would thank us and say, "Come back" and we
would clutch the bag, anxious and excited to get
home and count out and divide our candy.
Almost always, we had gotten more than we had
given.
I should mention that Mr. Chavous made
every block in each one of those buildings, all the
while serving as an attorney. In those days we
just called them lawyers. The Moeller building
was probably his last project and he and Mrs.
Chavous lived there for a few years.
Speaking of Mr. Chavous being a lawyer
brings my thoughts to our old "beloved" Court
House and the big tall columns at the front
entrance. The Dixie County Court House was the
prettiest of any .in surrounding counties. The.
Court Room was on the second floor and we
knew not to go up there. Once, my dad took me
up those forbidden stairs for a look around. I was
glad to go back down.
It was well known that Mr. Will Chavous
spoke loud and clear when he was pleading a
case. In fact, our house, still standing on the

Sf~


northwest corner across from the Court House,
now owned by June Wood Florist, used to have a
big-screened front porch. We could sit out there
and hear Mr. Chavous plead his cases. Remember
no, air-conditioning then, windows and doors
were left open.
Do you remember when all the kids in the
neighborhood learned to skate and ride their
bikes on the Court House sidewalks? One
afternoon a big group of us gathered at the
backside of the building. We were "whooping" it
up and having such a good time, yelling and
laughing when one of us fell, or succeeded in
riding or skating without falling that we hadn't
noticed cars parked around the block. All of a
sudden Mr. Happy the maintenance man,
appeared and told us that he had been sent to tell
us to stop yelling and carrying on, they were
trying to have court upstairs and couldn't hear
themselves talking! Needless to say we scattered
and didn't come back for a while, as we weren't
sure how friendly the Judge was. More about the
Court House another time.
How many of you remember Fishers Store? It
was across the street from the west side of the
Court House. I don't recall much about what they
said but the family lived there and there were
several children, all older than I was. Even then I
noticed that all the children were pretty or good-
looking, especially the older son, Gene. Cecil, the
youngest daughter, was a whiz at playing jacks
and we were fascinated watching her. She would
often be on the front entrance walk, playing, as
my playmate, Dardia Wilder, and I would stop
and wish we could play as well on our way to her
house or mine.
Heading back south the original building on
the south west corner was Cheeks Pharmacy. It is
presently the site of Langston Insurance Co. Mr.
Cheek filled prescriptions and gave out advice
from the pharmacy located at the back of the
store. Up front was a well stocked fountain and
small tables and chairs where you could sit and
have a fountain coke or dish of ice cream. I recall
my Sunday School teacher taking our class there
for ice cream one time. Back in those days that
was a real treat. Do you remember who the soda
clerk was at Cheek's? If you do call the Dixie
County Advocate office at 352-498-3312 and tell
us.
Let's stroll down Barber Ave. to the original
Dixie County State Bank where things are about
to happen. On a normal day my dad a brickmason
was hard at work laying brick at a construction
site down town. Not far from the school traffic
light. Some travelers stopped their car and one of
the men well dressed approached my dad, asking
for directions to the local bank. My dad willingly
stopped and obliged them, being a typical
friendly southern citizen, and they went on their
way to the bank. As the men entered the lobby of
the bank they pulled out guns and ordered
everyone elderly customers as well to lie down
on the floor, and then proceeded to rob the bank.
The robbers turned out to be the "Ma Barker"
gang and were captured later in a shoot out with
the F.B.I. at their home in Weirsdale, FL. Some
time afterwards, my dad drove us, (quite a trip
those days) to see the large bullet holes in the
house where they were captured.
To see what the bank looks like then and now
turn to page 20 and look for this weeks Dixie
Sighting.
Don't forget call us at 352-498-3312, the
"Advocate". Let us know if you knew who the
soda clerk was.
Until next time.

Senator Rod Smith Touts
Senator Rod Smith, co-sponsor of Senate
Bill 1612 to provide additional revenues for
"fiscally constrained" counties, encourages
rural county residents and elected officials to
contact their legislators to urge them to support
SB 1612.
"Our small counties in north Florida need
the help this bill will provide because many are
at their limit for taxes," said Smith. "This is
the second year we've tried to get this bill
passed, and this year it has made it past all the
committee hurdles in the Senate and the
House. I expect it to be on the floor for a vote
in both chambers soon. I want to remind our
local government leaders to help motivate the
Legislature to take action on the issue this year
and to work together to clarify outstanding
issues pertaining to the funding of the
proposal."
The Revenue Estimating Conference has
estimated that the amount available to
29 "fiscally constrained" counties will be
approximately $16 million for fiscal year
2006-07. The estimated amounts range from a
high of $792,631 for Union, Holmes and
Calhoun Counties to a low of $160,524 for
Franklin County.
Senator Smith credits bills sponsors
Representative Joe Pickens and Senator Carey
Baker with creating support for the effort. He
points out, "This is truly a bi-partisan effort by


Bill For Rural Counties
those us who represent and understand .he
challenges facing small counties in Florida."
The Senator notes that the bill is expected to be
on calendar for a vote in both the Senate and
the House prior to the end of session.
Senator Smith notes that this is a change
that the counties have been seeking for some
time. "I know that in the past, the Legislature
has assigned new duties to our county
governments without providing the funding
support for new mandates. It is our job to help
support the counties in doing the many jobs we
ask them to do for our citizens."

The legislation is designed to benefit those
counties where one mill of taxation raises less
than $4 million. There are 29 Florida counties
that would fit the definition for receipt of
these additional funds in the current version of
the SB1612. The amount each county is
eligible to receive under the proposed
guidelines varies by population and current tax
mileage.
The counties that are targeted for the
revenue boost are: Baker, Bradford, Calhoun,
Columbia, Desoto, Dixie, Franklin, Gadsden,
Gilchrist, Glades, Gulf, Hamilton, Hardee,
Hendry, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette,
Levy, Liberty, Madison, Okeechobee, Putnam,
Sumter, Suwannee, Taylor, Union, Wakulla,
and Washington.

-MONEY SAVING IDEAS

ttie Steps Can Add Up To Big Savings At The Pump
-^itl Stp Ca d "pT i aig tTePm


S. by Roger Kwapich
The C.A.R. Show
(NAPS)-Everyone is look-
ing'for ways to reduce "gas
pains" from high fuel costs.
'There are some easy things
y,ou can do to put yourself on
Sthe road to gas economy.
Light on the Pedal-
Ease on the accelerator when
you start from a red light.
Your car will run leaner and
t won't use as much gas. On
tlhe highway, run about five
: miles under the posted speed
limit to save.
Crank the
A/C-It used to
be true that not
f using the air-
conditioning
SKwapich (A/C) in warmer
months would
saxe1on Fuel economy. That's
ot true anymore. With the
aerodynamics of today's vehi-
cles, by turning off the A/C the
resistance created by the wind
causes more drag on the vehi-
ele when the windows are
k i olled down.
Use the Right Fuel-
Never use a higher octane
gasoline than your engine
needs. It's like trying to put
16' ounces of fluid into a 12
; ouce glass. Use the right
octane and you can save about
a dime or more per gallon at
each fill.up.
Keep Up the Pres-
sure-Make sure you have
the correct pressure in each
of your tires. With too little
* air in the tires, the friction
. ,that it takes to roll the car is
much greater, thus reducing
fuel economy.
!*. Keep It Clean-Keep
your engine clean of debris
by changing its oil and fuel
Filter.
S Get It In Gear-Most
S modern transmissions are
electronically operated by con-
trollers. Transmission fluid
S that's,broken down may keep
'' / your car from going into its
highest gear. Have the trans-
mission fluid changed in the
S36000 to 50,000 mile range.
Stir It Up-There are
,! lot otf different gadgets on the
m i rket that claim to increase
fuel economy. In all of our test-
ng, we have virtually found


no improvement in anything,
with one exception. It is a
device' called Tornado that's
put into the air intake, clos-
est to the throttle plate, and
stimulates the air to get it
really turbulent. That causes
a good fuel atomization within
the engine itself that' caused
an increase in fuel economy
in the applications we tested
by an average of one to two
miles per gallon.
With gas prices over $2 and
approaching the $3 mark, if
you can save one or two miles
per gallon every time you fill
up, that can translate to about
$300 or $400 of savings per
year under normal driving
conditions. I think everybody's
interested in that.

Hot Weather
Tips To Help
Protect Your
Companion
Overheating can kill an
animal. Never leave an animal
in a vehicle, since even with
the windows open a parked
car, truck or van can quickly
become a furnace. Parking in
the shade offers little
protection, as the sun shifts
during the day. When
traveling, carry a gallon
thermos filled with fresh, cold
water.
Always provide plenty of
shade for an animal staying
outside. A properly
constructed doghouse serves
best. Bring your dog inside
during the hot time of the day
and let her rest in a cool part of
.the house. Provide plenty of
water. Keep cats indoors.
Never tie an animal outside
on a correction collar. He can
choke to death. If you must
tether him, use an overhead
trolley system with a buckle
.collar.
Never let your animal loose
outside. An animal can
contract a fatal disease or be
injured, killed, stolen. Be sure
there are no open unscreened
windows and doors through
,Nhich your animal can fall or
:jump.
Take your companion
animal to the vet for a spring
or early summer check up
including a heartworm test if
your dog isn't on year round
preventative medication. Have
the doctor recommend a safe,
-effective flea and tick control
program. Also, ask for a
'heartworm preventative.

Sensational Snacks
(NAPS)-If you're looking
for an afternoon snack to keep
your stomach from growling
as well as growing, you'd be
nuts to ignore the power of
pecans. These power-packed
tree nuts contain more than
19 vitamins and minerals,
and they're cholesterol-free.


Not only that, nutrient-rich
pecans are loaded with
antioxidants that may help
fight diseases such as
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, can-
cer and heart disease. There's
no better time to start eating
healthy with pecans:
Instead of chips, which
are loaded with sodium, bring
about 20 naturally sodium-
free pecan halves to work to
snack on throughout the day.
Substitute pecans for a
candy bar when you're look-
ing for an afternoon pick-me-
up. Pecans provide long-last-
ing energy because they
contain heart-healthy mono
and polyunsaturated fats, and
the same amount of fiber as
a medium-sized apple.
Sprinkle pecans on top
of your yogurt and you'll get
more zinc-an important
nutrient for proper growth
and strong immunity.
For more information on
the health benefits of pecans
and where to find them, visit
www.ilovepecans.org.
