DOMESTIC DISPUTE


ENDS IN DEATH OF


OLD TOWN MAN
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Craig Curtis Wells, 45 of Old Town was fatally shot Tuesday, April 25th during an altercation
between himself and his common law wife, Tonda Marie Burdette, 30, also of Old Town. The:
couple had a history of domestic violence and investigators continue to uncover just what happened.:
that led Burdette to shoot Wells twice in the chest.
According to a Dixie County Sheriff's Department spokesman, Wells and Burdette had five.
children ranging in age from 8 to 15; Burdette had two and they had three children together. Burdette
told investigators that she and Wells had a verbal and physical altercation that day and that Wells:
carried over his rage onto one of the children. It was while Wells was allegedly assaulting that child.
that she went and got a 22 caliber gun and then shot him.
As of press time, no charges have been filed against Burdette. Once the investigation is
complete, the case will most likely be heard by a Grand Jury who will ultimately decide whether she'
will be charged with the death of the man she lived with for 14 years.

Reminder to Truckers

That New Truck Route

Is Being Enforced


Pittsburg Man Injured

In Rollover Accident


Left to right: (from the top) Richard Brodzinski, Nicole Antras, Del Lee
Lebron, Francis Davis, Teva Teague, and Chandra Harris.
See "ARRESTS" page 5A


The picture above is a shot of the first truck drivers receiving a warning
from Cross City- Police as they drove past the truck route which would
take them from CR 351A to US 19 but instead took the more familiar
route, straight down CR 351 in the town's congested areas by the
courthouse, post office and business section.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Chief of Police Wesley Jones stated that this is a safety issue
and the new route will be strictly enforced. He also noted that in
the next several weeks the 4-way stop signs will go online. He
added that it will be imperative that folks slow down and watch
traffic at these intersections.
Remember this rule: according to the Florida Driver's Manual
- State Statute 316.123 paragraph 2B; at a 4-way intersection the
driver of the first vehicle to stop at the intersection shall be the
first to proceed. If two or more vehicles reach the four-way stop
intersection at the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left
shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
Some have expressed concern over the stop signs, feeling they
will cause more accidents, however statistics show that when
people are approaching a 4-way stop they automatically have to
slow down and this is what is needed in these congested areas.


Pictured above is a Ford Frontier that overturned after the driver ran off
the roadway on CR 340 last week. Troopers tied up the driver's dog
while Dixie EMS cared for her master.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On Thursday, April 27th emergency crews were called at
approximately 9:30am to a single vehicle accident on CR 340, near
the Rock Bluff Bridge.
Jonathan Jacks, 44, of Pittsburg had been traveling eastbound
when he ran off the roadway and then overcorrected when trying to
re-enter the road causing his Ford Frontier to overturn on its side
and then slide into a guardrail.
Jacks received incapacitating injuries and was airlifted to
Shands UF in Gainesville where he was treated for a head injury;.as
well as other possible injuries.
Other occupants of the vehicle included Parks' dog and kittens.
All the animals were taken to Parks' friends' home in; Dixie
County.
A spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol stated that iJatk
was wearing his seatbelt and that alcohol was not a fact6r 1 the
crash.
No charges had been filed as of press time.

Letter to the Editor
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Jerry Scarborough
and Kirk Webster of the Suwannee River Water Management
District about my concerns with the proposed new Minimum Flow
Levels for the Suwannee River that take effect on May 14, 2006.
According to Jerry Scarborough the proposed new MFLs will
protect the Suwannee River from significant harm. "Not harm, but
significant harm and significant harm will be defined by the
SRWMD governing board as needed because there is no definition
of significant harm in place. Significant harm will be monitored
by the permitting process not the river conditions."
We discussed the impact of these MFLs on two endangered
species that depend on the Suwannee River. For the Gulf Sturgeon
the Suwannee is their primary breeding ground. It is the home of
their largest population in the state, about 3,000 fish. Abundant
water flow in the Suwannee is central to the Sturgeons recovery.
The SRWMD expressed no need of concern for the Sturgeon.
District officials say enough water will be maintained to allow
manatees' access to the springs except at rare times. "They may
have to wait a few hours to get in," said Kirk Webster, deputy
executive director of the districts resources department.
The springs of the Suwannee are the northernmost warm water
refuge for the manatees during the winter. Manatee calves nurse
for up to 3 years and can die in 60-degree water in 6-8 hours. The
new MFLs can deny manatees access to the springs 15% of the
time during the period which is most critical for them.
Lembaga algae was first identified in the Suwannee River in
2001 at Manatee Springs. Since then it has spread up river to
Itchtucknee Springs. This alga feeds on nitrates and smothers the
aquatic grass beds and has been known to cause rashes in humans.
It thrives in low water levels. Jerry Scarborough stated that he had
no knowledge of Lembaga algae in the Suwannee River,"
The proposed $3.5 million dredging of McGriff's Pass at the
mouth of the Suwannee River would remove about 112,000 cubic
yards of material from a 2.5-mile-long, 75-feet-wide and six-feet-
deep pass. When asked why the effects of the proposed dredging
of McGriff's Pass was not considered in proposed new MFLs?
"The dredging will have no significant effect on the rivers flow"
according to Jerry Scarborough, Director SRWMD.
In 1972 the Florida Legislature mandated the settings of MFLs
for Florida Rivers. 34 years later SRWMD is setting the MFLs at
10% below the historical flow levels of the Suwannee River.
These MFLs are based on the best information available. The
proposed new MFLs are based on computer models and formulas
that have been used in other Florida Water Management Districts.
There is no real world situation where these models and formulas
have been successfully used. Jerry Scarborough stated, 'They are
the best information available."
The director of the SRWMD states that these new MFLs will
protect the Suwannee River from "significant harm". He stated
that 'The new MFLs will be put in place May 14, 2006 and when
significant harm to the Suwannee River is determined by the
governing board then the MFLs can be reconsidered." To truly
protect the Suwannee water why not set them at least 10% above
the historical flows was a question they did not answer.
Senator Nancy Argenziano has stated her support for higher
MFLs "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."
If the SRWMD goals are to truly protect the Suwannee River
then using computer models and formulas that have failed to
protect other Florida waters just does not make sense to me; unless

April 27, 2006 where you said

Fires Continue To Flare

Throughout County


The Florida Division of Forestry, Perry Station, responded to afire off
the Rocky Creek Road last week where lightning is suspected to be the
igniter in the blaze.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last Thursday, April 27th, fire fighters and forest rangers were
kept busy as they fought two separate fires, one off Willie Lock
Mainline in Horseshoe and the other off the Rocky Creek Road in
Jena.
According to fire officials, arson is suspected in the fire in
Horseshoe. This is one of several this year that an investigation
has shown arson to be' the cause. Over 23 acres were burned
during the fire and it took local volunteer fire units along with
manpower and equipment from the Florida Division of Forestry,
DOF, to put the flames out as high winds and dry conditions fueled
the blaze.
In Jena, local fire fighters were unable to reach the fire started
by a lighting strike. Heavy brush and marshlands kept the smaller
fire trucks from reaching the fire. Once DOF were on the scene
with their equipment a fire line was made which contained the fire
to a 5-acre burn.
Fire officials stated that we are still not under a burn ban,
however they urge residents to use extreme caution during these
dry and windy days that we have been experiencing.

"ARRESTS"
Continued from page 1
By Terri Langford
The Dixie County Sheriff's Department was once again pro-
active in getting persons selling and using drugs off the streets.
This past weekend four suspects were arrested on drug charges. In
addition two Old Town residents were arrested after they broke
into a parked vehicle.
According to a report filed by the Dixie County Sheriffs
Office, Richard T. Brodzinski, 39 of Old Town and Nicole B.
Antras, 19, of Old Town, were found at the scene of a vehicle
break-in by a DCSO Deputy early Friday morning, April 29h.
The deputy was on routine patrol on SR 349 North when he
noticed a small car parked along side a pickup. He (the deputy)
recognized the truck as one that had been on the side of the road
for several days. The deputy continued north but returned to the
scene 3-5 minutes later. When he returned he noticed one of the
windows had been broken and both Brodzinski and Antras were
still at the scene.
An investigation at the scene led the deputy to arrest Brozinski
for Armed Burglary and Antras for Aiding & Abetting In A
Burglary.
Over the weekend a traffic stop led to the arrest of Del Lee
Lebron and Francis Davis. Lebron was charged with Possession of
Marijuana With Intent to Sell. Davis was charged with Possession
of Meth.
Two warrants were served over the weekend and led to the
arrest of Teva Teague and Chandra Harris. Teague was charged
with Sale of Cocaine. Her bond was set at $100,000.00. Harris
was also charged with Sale of Cocaine with her bond set at
$50,000.00.

Levy County Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, April 27th at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. We are having new members each week and its fun to ,get
someone started and remember the days where we all started and hdw
much we have learned through the years and we are still learning.
My mother used to say, The best laid plans of man and mice, often
go astray". Well, we are now looking for someone to supervise our gazebo
so the inmates can build it. We also have others who will help but we need
someone who can read plans. If you are that someone call 493-2801.
Greg and five boys were out Tuesday and got the yard looking-so
great and then we had rain. That really helped so I said, one bucket of rain
is a thousand times better than that much ground water.
The trip to Live Oak to visit the Boys Ranch was something everyone
should do. I will be writing a story on my visit as soon as I can get it
together. We took lots of pictures and met so many wonderful boys and
people.
Lunch was so great with fresh squash, spaghetti, fried corn patties,
chicken. salads. Lois's yummy cake. brownies and so much more.


The Word

Made Flesh
The Mark of the Beast

I, the son of man, say there is
much speculation concerning the
mark of the beast. As people cast
an apprehensive eye toward
various events which arise.
They wonder if these
situations are leading into some
terrifying hour which shall climax
with a fearful beast demanding
that they take a mark which will
seal their fate,-or else cause-them
to give their life for what they
believe.
We have often pondered the
fact that they were adversaries
always exposed to us as a roaring
lion, there would not be so much
probability, since we would
recognize him.
But when the devil transforms
himself into an angel of light
appearance, then the subtleness of
his actions beguile many into
falling into a snare.
I, the son of man, say I have
sought the Lord for an
understanding of the spiritual
nature of this mark and would like
to share with you that which has
been quickened to me. May the
spirit of God make it personally
real to everyone.
Is my firm conviction that not
only is this a mark with spiritual
implications, but that there is
another mark in the positive realm
that counter-balances the negative
realm.
We are even more interested
in the mark of God than we are in
anything which belongs to the
bestial system, since to bear the
mark of God would insure us
against coming under the other
mark:
What is the name of the beast?
Can we take on the mark and not
know of the beast's name? Yes,
most people try to put this mark
and name on some man they.
believe will show up in our day.
This mark, number and name
of the beast does not come from a
human being walking here on
earth. This mark comes from a
beast which was seen in Heaven
first, then came into the sea. '
This sea is people here on
earth. This beast in the sea is not
the beast that causes this mark to
come on people and ini people.

Abundant Life
& Living
By13 Lucille Stockton ..
Behold what manner of love the .
Father has bestowed upon his human
creation that we should be called his "
children. 1 John 3:1-2 (KJV). In this
Scripture it clearly states: should be,
it doesn't say we are the children of '
God. But until we get our Spiritual
Birth we can not inherit the kingdom of God.
God is rich in health, love, peach, joy and happiness. He hold the wealth
of the whole vast world in his hand. If we are born again children, we are
heirs to all he has. God needs us to help make this a righteous planet to
live on. Ask yourself, am I doing my share or have I done what was
required of me to enhance abundant life and living?
It begins with one individual, one person can make a huge difference.
Instead of judging and accusing others actions and deeds, ask: Lord, what
would you have me to do to help make a righteous kingdom, let it begin
with me. Jesus taught his disciples to Pray, the kingdom come on earth as
it is in heaven. The laws and statutes are already written. It is up to the
individual to keep them to receive their inheritance. I am sure none of us
want to be disinherited by God.
"Love Life and Live It."

New Prospect Baptist News
As always, it was good to be in the Lord's house on Sunday.
Our choir did a superb job of praising God in song, and Bro. Billy
brought a very convicting message to a full house from Acts 2:36-
41. We were once again blessed with visitors, and hope they'll be
back and bring others with them.
The May schedule looks like a pretty full one for us. The
Men's Rally will be on Friday, May 5th, followed by our 106th
Annual NPBC Homecoming on Sunday, May 7th. On the latter,
we look forward to a full day as Bro. Billy brings the Homecoming
message, and Southland Quartet supplies the music and singing for
the day. Please join us for a great day of praise and fellowship!
Our Pastor/Deacons meeting will be on Monday evening, May 8th,
followed by our monthly Business Meeting on Wednesday, May
10th. Then, on Friday evening, May 12th, we will have our
Annual Mother's Day Banquet.
Please be much in prayer for all the people on the church
prayer lists during the coming week, as well as our men and
women in the armed forces and our nation's leaders. Remember,
"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much,"
according to God's Word. You're invited to come and visit with us
anytime at New Prospect...we welcome all! Have a good week,
and may God bless and keep you.

Calvary Temple News
Two awesome services were held Sunday at Calvary with
Evangelist David Piper. The Lord did some great things. Calvary
would like to invite you to come worship with this church family.
We are blessed with a very anointed Praise & Worship Team. Our
Wednesday night Youth program is doing wonderful. The Kidz
Church is growing in leaps and bounds and we offer a Nursery on
Sunday morning for children ages 3 years and under.
Service times at Calvary are Sunday morning 10:30 a.m. and
Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. On Sunday evenings at 7:00 we
have a New Believer class for all ages. If you are looking for a
Bible based church that still believes that Jesus is the same
yesterday, today, and forever, then give Calvary Temple a visit.
The church is made up of great people who love the Lord. We
are neither flawless nor perfect but we will love you with the love
of the Lord and appreciate and accept you for who you are, and not
for who and what we want you to be: Listen to our radio program
on Sunday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. on 91.3 FM The Edge. Jesus is
coming soon! If Calvary is not the church of your choice, please
find a good local church and get involved. Your eternity is at
stake!

Card of Appreciation
I would like to express my appreciation to all of my friends and
family who have helped me and prayed for me after my recent
injury. A special thank you goes to my church family at Lydia
Baptist; my friend Bertie Hines; my neighbors Leon and Karolyn
Ealy, Manuel and Gwen Crawford, and Cindy Dyals; and
especially my family for all the love and consideration they have
shown me.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
The Day of the Lord.
The Day of the Lord is not a twenty-four hour day; it is a people,
God's Army.
Isa. 62:10 go through, (out beyond) the gates; (the gates of Jerusalum).
Gal. 4:25.
As you go through these gates, (religious systems) you will not find
many people, because the big crowds love the broad gate. In this big,
broad way you can do your program, but in the narrow gate you will only
do what you see the Father do, because this way is to narrow for your
program.
Jesus said He came in His father's name (nature) not to do His will,
but the father's will. So you see that if Jesus took the strait and narrow
gate you and I should.
Job 38:17 Have the gates of death been open to thee? We died in the
first man Adam, so we must find this gate of death and go through it back
to life. So now in Jesus we die again, but this death is a death out of the
death of the first man Adam.
Jesus is death unto death back unto life. Second Cor. 2:16 To the one
we are the Saviour of death unto death; and to the other the Saviour of life
unto life.
So you see in the first man Adam we died (fell from a higher life, into
a lower life). Now in the second adam we must die to this lower life, back
into a life that has no death in it.
Many people want to go up at once, when Jesus comes into them, but
they don't know that in Jesus we must die first to the old life that has death
in it, before we can come into the life which has no death in it.
Jesus has the keys unto death into life.
Isa. 62:10 Cast up, cast up the highway; Isa.57:14 And shall say, Cast
ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of my
people.
The word cast up, cast up in Hebrew means bank up, bank up the
highway. The word highway is a raised up way, God's highway.
Jer. 6:16 Thus saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask
for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk there in, and ye shall
find rest for your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein.
Jer. 18:15 Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned
incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways the
ancient paths, to walk in paths, a way not cast up.
Mic. 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come and let us go
up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of God of Jacob; and he
will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths.
Psa. 103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the
children of Israel.
Isa. 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way they knew not: I will
lead them in paths they have not known.
Isa. 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppresors, and women
rule over them. 0 my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and
destroy the way of thy paths.
Mal. 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the
way before me.
St. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the Father, but me.

In Loving Memory

Program Offers Help
To Forest Landowners
The Florida Department of Agriculture, Division of Forestry
will be accepting applications for the Southern Pine Beetle
Prevention Cost-Share Program beginning May 1, 2006.
The southern pine beetle, or SPB, is a native, periodically
destructive insect pest of pines in the southeastern United States.
Like other pine bark beetle attacks, SPB attacks are typically
limited to pines that are dying or weakened due to environmental
conditions, however, SPB populations have the potential to build
rapidly and kill large numbers of pines, and may overcome the
defenses of healthy trees during periodic outbreaks.
The primary objective of the SPB Prevention Cost-Share
Program is to prevent SPB damage and outbreaks in Florida by
helping non-industrial private forest (NIFP) landowners to reduce
the susceptibility of their forests. Toward this end, the program
offers NIPF landowners up to 50% reimbursement toward the cost
of certain approved forest management practices (thinning and

FWC WEEKLY REPORT
April 21-27, 2006
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
NORTH CENTRAL REGION
GILCHRIST COUNTY: April 22, Investigator Larry Ayers
responded to a report of a boating incident in which a large fish,
believed to be a sturgeon, jumped into a boat, striking the
passenger in the face while the boat was underway on a plane in
the Suwannee River near Bell. The passenger suffered serious
facial injuries as a result of the incident. A nearby homeowner
called 911 and the victim was flown to Shands Hospital in
Gainesville for treatment. The operator of the vessel was not
injured and the fish also caused approximately $1,000.00 worth of
damage to the vessel.
LEVY COUNTY: April 3, Officer Travis Hooker was
patrolling on foot in a Levy County hunt lease in search of turkey
bait when he discovered approximately 25 marijuana plants hidden
in palmetto bushes. Hooker coordinated efforts among the squad
to provide surveillance of the illegal crop for the weeks to follow.
On April 25, Officer Robert Johnston was on surveillance of the
plants when he heard an ATV drive to the area and stop. A male
subject walked up to the plants with a bucket and began to water
them. Johnston approached the man and identified himself. After
a short foot pursuit, the subject was arrested on felony cultivating
charges. The marijuana plants, an ATV, and the watering bucket
were seized as evidence.


prescribed burning) that help to prevent SPB infestations. The
program is funded through grants from the USDA Forest Service.
The program is available to NIPF landowners who own at least
10 contiguous acres of forest land in Florida. NIPF landowners
who meet the eligibility requirements may apply to receive
reimbursement for 50% of the actual cost (based on submitted
receipts) of certain approved SPB prevention practices, but
payment will not exceed the maximum cost-share rate assigned for
each practice. The maximum cost-share reimbursement per
landowner is $10,000 per year. Only one application per
landowner is allowed per year.
On a given application, a landowner may request cost-share
funds for one of the available practice options. Pre-commercial
thinning is applied to an existing, non-merchantable pine stand to
reduce the tree stem density to 550 or less stems per acre. First
pulpwood thinning is applied to existing overstocked pine stands to
thin them back to basal areas of less than or equal to 80 square feet
per acre to reduce SPB susceptibility. Prescribed burning is
applied to reduce understory competition that can place
competition stress on pines, particularly during droughts.
Application forms are available from all Division of Forestry
offices. The Division's foresters will provide technical assistance
to landowners and will be the contact person for participating
landowners. For information, contact Stan Shepard at (850) 838-
2286.

ing to design something
completely foolproof is
to underestimate the
ingenuity of complete
fools.
-Douglas Adams


April 23, Lt. Ken Avinon, Investigators Chip Bradshaw and
Jim Smith and Officers Terry Allyn, Benny Tyre, John Jones and
Doug Loyed responded to a boating accident near marker 34 in the
barge canal, in which a Crystal River man died and his son was
injured. The two had been fishing when their vessel capsized and
both went into the water. The investigation is ongoing.
SUWANNEE COUNTY: Officer Dwain Mobley received
information regarding two individuals who killed a deer recently in
Suwannee County. The suspects were located and interviewed.
Their statements resulted in one juvenile and one adult being
charged with 372.99 violations. One .35-caliber Marlin, one
spotlight, and a small quantity of meat were seized.
TAYLOR COUNTY: April 22, Officer Leonard Bailey
approached a hunter in a blind located within 40 yards of an active
broadcast corn feeder. As Bailey was checking the subject's
license, he questioned the subject as to what he was hunting. The
subject stated he was hunting turkey. Additional questioning
showed the subject was aware of the baiting restrictions on turkey.
The subject was cited for attempting to take turkey over bait.
TAYLOR COUNTY COPS: April 19, Lt. Bruce Cooper and
Officer Andrew Bickel assisted the Taylor County Reef Advisory
Committee on a dive assessment of the counties artificial reefs. In
addition to the advisory committee, FWC artificial reef
coordinators were also present. The team of divers found
numerous artificial reefs damaged from this past hurricane season.
The committee is working on securing FWC grants to replenish
several of their permitted artificial reef sites.
April 25, Lt. Bruce Cooper attended a meeting of Taylor
County Advisory Committees. Cooper is an appointed member of
the Taylor County Reef Committee and the Coastal Committee.
Both committees met to discuss private and governmental funding
and assistance for artificial reef enhancement along the Dixie,
Taylor, and Wakulla County coast.
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
-r 2 TEACHER
APPRECIATION
1 WEEK
May 7-13, 2006
".** During our Tuesday morning
Senior breakfast, we had the
opportunity to sit with
approximately 115 seniors, that
Superintendent are about to graduate from Dixie
Dennis W. Bennett County High School this year.
They all were so full of energy and seem to be confident that they
are ready to make their mark in the world of opportunity.
Watching these seniors made me realize what an investment a
school system puts in each and every senior that graduates. The
financial investment of time and money is overwhelming, to get
seniors to a proficiency level to graduate. As that senior steps
across the stage and receives their diploma, I wish they could be
greeted by every teacher that has had a part in helping them move
to this point in their life.
May 7-13 is Teacher Appreciation Week. We know that our
teachers and staff are the key ingredient that makes our public
education system the best in the world. All across the nation we
have successful, productive people because of caring, dedicated
teachers and staff. Our hope is as we move toward graduation, that
every graduating senior and parent would take opportunity to
thank a teacher or staff member, working or retired for taking one
of the greatest challenges and this is to make a difference in a
child's life.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MAY 4, 2006


_The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin
I'll take the
-Kentucky Derby
1. This time of year, while we are waiting
:.'for the pro basketball, hockey playoffs and the
baseball races to heat up, those who aren't enamored '
by the pro football flesh market find other ways to till
their sporting appetites. .
S1.) No offense to all of you who indulge in :-
', the memorization of 40-yard dash times, vertical leap "
:,distances, and bench. presses, but while you're
Counting up the mythical scores of how the NFL teams
-did in the draft, I'll be studying up for my Kentucky
pDerby picks.
The first Saturday of May each year will
,always be worthy of investing my two minutes for Derby
'watching.: And even though we go into the first of the Triple
ZCrown races with a brand new slate all new horses and some
.Jiltr. ni jockeys it's fun to ferret out a name or a hunch.
From v.hji ltlic information has crossed my desk
lately, Brother Derek remains the favorite are early 3-1 odds. You
can throw in Lawyer Ron, 'Barbaro and A.P. Warrior as strong
contenders, Among the long shots I like are Sharp Humor,
Sweetnorthernsaint, Showing Up and -just because of thename -
Sinister Minister.
{/' As stated previously, Sharp Humor because my
father-in-law, Mickey Sharp, is a retired comedian (although I
don't believe ftinny men every really retire).
; ; Sweetnorthernsaint is the only Florida-bred horse in
the aic Showing Up is one of two horses with Ocala connections
S' (Barbaro is the other).
It's always more fun to follow when you have a local
Connection, as we've had twice in recent years with Funny Cide
ad' Smnarty Jones. But even without them, it's worthwhile
S('following the Kentucky Derby, a classic event now in its 132nd

STie characteristic of this year's field is that there's plenty
i 'oft' early speed, which means it will be a traffic jam on the first
S"rnm at Churchill Downs
I have learned over the years in attending the Derby
and putting down a bob or two that hunches on names and colors
d't',dnd "irly stuff like that often work better than Racing Form
I handicapping. Might, I also suggest that as a drafting method to
soic'of ihe NFL gncral managers.
Quick Jump Starts
-c I 1 1 Irepeaj, for the zillionth time, the NFL Draft is notan
athletic contest with no score kept. ,hich is why this is a Draft-
'k IFree Zone today except for those listed below.
S: 2. The Jets are off the lod.
t14:3 ,1. '3. Ex Gator/Harricrie quarierbjcl. Bruo. Berlin ri plaiIiig
% *tin NFL Europe, but shoulder' the Hamburg Sea Dragons trade
?f.,t himtto the Berlin Thunder?
V, t .4 Nobudy ,ill rniio, Keiih Jajld ,:n more than me, but you
could tell in his eilecast of he Te'.j-..UiSC gam( trha he'd lost a


step and he knew it.
5. That quote by Reggie Bush that he "didn't know" about
his parents' free house is beginning to sound a lot like another
famous one: "I did not have sex with that woman!"
Short Stuff
Auburn had the highest paid football staff in the nation
last season, $4,938,831 ... It turns out that
Logan Young, the Alabama Booster who was
convicted last year of bribing a high school
"Li football coach to steer a top recruit to Alabama;
A was not murdered, but died of an accidental
S death in his home.
"' .,"" Buddy's E-mail bag
Buddy:
Re: Your Kentucky Derby picks.
Brother Derek may be your obvious political
choice, but there's another reason your
sentimental choice of Sharp Humor should be
reconsidered. Sharp Humor has the same lines as Funny Cide,
who you will recall was also not considered a favorite back in
2003 when he won the Derby. They were both sired by Distorted
Humor, so perhaps blood will tell. As you know, as in life,
anything can happen in a horse race. so we should all keep our
options open. -Betty Rosecrans, Port Charlotte
(Editor's Note: Mrs. Rosecrans is the mother ofJon
Constance, the optician who was one of Funny Cide 's owners and
member of the "Fun Bunch.") '
Nothing But 'Net
(With a little help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Clipboard
Jesus's Dad's Name
A Sunday school teacher asked her class, "What was
Jesus' mother's name?" One child answered,
"Mary."The teacher then asked, "Who knows what
Jesus' father's name was?"A little kid said,
"Verge."Confused, the teacher asked, "Where did
you get that?"_The kid said, "Well, you know they
are always talking about Verge n' Mary."
Buddy's Favorite Non-NFL Drafts
1. Beer on tap.
2. The Daytona 500 kind.
3. The final one before I submit the column..
Bowling for dollars
I'm okay with the NCAA approving four new bowl
games, but how did Glendale, Calif. rate one that is going to be
added as a fifth game to the BCS?
Bumper Sticker, Sign or T-shirt
1. Honk if you sacked Drew Weatherford.
2. Man, you can't twist to rap.
3. Overeducated and underemployed.
Today's Proverb
How long a minute is depends on what side of the
.bathroom door you're on.
And Good Morning...
... To Needles, the Ocala-bred horse that won the
Kentucky Derby in 50 years ago and put Florida on the horse
racing map.

they are happy to be a part of Dixie
County.
A neighbor of the property proposed
for re-zoning stated that it is nothing
personal but has concerns if the
property is re-zoned and the Lange's
sell the property. What type of
business might be put in?
Concerns discussed by the public
were parking, maintaining traffic, and
the rumor that the Lange's plan to put
in an antique store. The traffic will
have difficulty exiting and entering
US 19 there on the comer.
Billy Keen stated that it is a state
road; so the DOT would have to be

the DOT was contacted and they said
we (Mr. & Mrs. Lange) would be
responsible for the driveway.
James Hedrick discussed parking.
He stated there are seven people here
representing this sub-division. There
is no way this lot can comply with
commercial on site water supply.
There are deed restrictions in place that
states "houses only". We are
completely against it and we own 1/3
of the sub-division.

stated the Board of County
Commissioners do not enforce deed
restrictions. That is a civil matter.

concerns. She stated her main concern
is traffic and it is not a county
maintained road.
Scott Hedrick stated that even with a
full acre it is not possible for the
Lange's to comply with all the
requirements. Also, at times the road
is impassible during the wet season of
the year. If we knew for sure they plan
only to have a real estate office I would
be less objective, but if it is re-zoned
and sold 'that is what we are really
concerned with.
Mr. Lange stated that they only
intend to put in a real estate office.
James Hedrick stated that
approximately 15 years ago, he set in a
re-zoning hearing. A person wanted to
change a parcel to CN to put in a
nursery. It was re-zoned and ,90 days
later was sold and there never has been
a nursery put on the property.
Barbara Cash spoke in favor of the
re-zoning. She stated that she moved
here 7 years ago and has seen so much
poverty. The poverty needs to be
cleaned up and we need some
commercial property.

Commissioner Land commented that
on SR349 the Board has always
changed the zoning if it was'a safe
business. He also stated that in times
past James Hedrick has petitioned for
re-zoning and then sold the property.
Commissioner Land stated he would
like some time to look into the matter

DICK EDWARDS, COMMUNITY
PROGRAMS CONSULTING
Mr. Dick Edwards presented the
Dixie County Grants Status Report
dated April 6, 2006 as follows:
CDBG
L Because the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs is in the process of
revising the Small Cities
Community Development Block
Grant Administrative Rule, the
Department has advised
potential recipients that the 2006
CBDG Funding Cycle "should
open in May or at least by mid-
June." The only major change
that we are aware of concerning
the rule revisions is that CDBG
Economic Development funds
can no longer be used to fund
Development-type projects.
II. We would still advise the
Dixie County Commission that if
it is at all possible that the
Commission hire a TANF
employee ASAP to qualify the
County for the associated 25
application points.
SHIP/HHR
1. The Building Department
has made us aware of a problem
they are having concerning
attempts on the part of some
SHIP new home recipients who
are trying to obtain building
permits to repair the homes that
were vacated when they received
their SHIP replacement home.
Under CDBG rules, vacated
houses are destroyed, however,
when a recipient receives a SHIP
replacement unit, because of
lack of budget, the homes are not
destroyed. We need to do
something to correct this
problem award mobile homes
to salvage companies, possibly
have the fire department burn
the old unit and use co ,pa'in.
equipment to clear the lot, etc...
2. The Florida Housing
Finance Corporation has
responded favorably to the
County's request concerning the
eligibility of Katrina Branch and
Margaret (Renee) Watson (See
attached email from FHFC SHIP
Program Manager, Darlene
Raker). We are asking
permission from the Commission
to bid a new (site-built and
manufactured) home for Ms.
Branch and to have Ms.
Watson's septic system
repaired/replaced.
3. The Commission needs to
amend its SHIP Housing
Assistance Plan (HAP) to include
funding for a Down Payment
Assistance element. We suggest
setting aside $50,000 for such an
element.
4. We still must bid-out the
Lois McDuffie new home and we
are working with two or three
possible Down Payment
Assistance applicants in the
Hurricane Housing Recovery
Program which is a first come,
first to qualify assistance
element.
5. Before we .process the
Branch, Watson or any new
Down Payment Assistance
application, the Commission has
approximately $66,000 in HHR
funding and around $80,000 in
2005-2006 SHIP money .with
another $315,000 being
allocated to the County in July.
2006 HUD Income Limits from the
Florida Housing Finance Corporation
were attached.
Mr. Edwards went over the report
and commented that Jack Spivey had
called him about the problem with the
mobile homes that were supposed to be
destroyed and the applicants are trying
to re-permit them.
The Board stated that they are
absolutely not to be permitted.
Mr. Edwards inquired about an
applicant that has requested to have a
handicap ramp in the front and back of
her home.
After some discussion, County
Attorney Lander stated that it must
comply with state requirements.
The Board agreed that one ramp is
sufficient and meets code
specifications.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine


and carried to approve the request for
the site-built home for Katrina Branch
and to do the septic system work for
Renee Watson based on availability of
funds.
Arthur Bellot stated that the Finance
Department and the Ship. Review
Committee are all on track to review,
assure adequate funding, and bring the
recommendations to the Board.
Mr. Edwards stated the $50,000
recommended to be set aside for Down
Payment Assistance applicants could
help up to 10 people.
Commissioner Driggers stated we
need to let it be known soon if we
decide to do this.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried with all in favor to put the
Down Payment Assistance Program in


the SHIP/HAP Plan.
Mr. Edwards asked for approval to
bid-out the Lois McDuffie home. The
Board agreed to bid it out.
Arthur Bellot stated that the
problems on the Watson Fleetwood
mobile home are being worked on with
the manufacturer and local dealer.
JERRY PRATER, VETERANS

SERVICE OFFICER

Board and presented the Dixie County
Veterans Service Monthly Activities
Letter dated April 6, 2006.

Joslin at Flying Hawk Enterprises in
Old Town. A couple of the posts need
to be straightened up before the chain

the task of "stringing" the chain
through the holes.
The Board agreed that this will be
done.

COORDINATOR
Arthur Bellot stated that Joe Ruth
will be out a few more days. Mr.
Bellot stated that Joe recommends
Melvin Godbolt as the choice for the
truck driver position. He had a second
recommendation from this group of
applicants, but was not offering it due
to the apparent majority of the Board's
opposition.
The Board agreed to hire Melvin
Godbolt for the truck driver position
with a standard probation period and
to begin work on Monday, April 10,
2006.
HOWARD REED, COUNTY
ROAD SUPERINTENDENT
Howard Reed updated the Board on
the dragline at the pit; it is still being
worked on, parts are to come in and
should be complete some time next
week.
He informed the Board that he has
information on a '78 Link-belt. It is
small and can be mobilized to different
locations within the county when
needed. It is located in West Palm
Beach. He would like someone to look
at a demonstration.
The Board agreed to send a group to
look at the equipment and bring it back
to the next meeting for a decision or
buy it if is in good condition.
JACK SPIVEY, BUILDING
OFFICIAL
Mr. Jack Spivey presented the Dixie
County Building and Zoning
Department Monthly Report for the
Month of March 2006.
The SRWMD software is scheduled
to be installed on Monday.
The signage problem on the
Suwannee Road was discussed.
Installation of signs at the Dyals Park
for a one time fee of $50.00 was
discussed.
Mr. Charlie Kinnard suggested that a
County Employee be designated to put
up the signs so they will be uniform
and attractive. Installation could be
scheduled for twice a month.
The Board agreed the signs need to
be removed from county right of way.
If they are not removed within a
certain period of time, they will be
removed by the county and the owner
can pick up their signs at the county
yard.
BILLY KEEN. ZONING OFFICIAL
& SAFETY DIRECTOR
Billy Keen presented a letter to the
Commissioners from Rex Dunn,
General Manager of the Steinhatchee
Water Association, Inc. The letter
requests "that building permits for
new construction that will be
connected to the Steinhatchee Water
Association not be issued until all
connection feed are paid.... Some of
the developments that we have issued
capacity letters for have been dormant
for several years with few if any
connections. With our resource
allocated to these projects that have
not generated any connection income
we have limited our ability to grow to
meet the needs of the community."
SB 444 discussed by Commissioner
Lamb. He stated that basically what
they are asking for is covered by SB
444.


Commissioner Valentine stated that
a meter was $75 and now it is $260.
Billy Keen stated that this will only
affect the ones that ask for it. The
building permit applicant must provide
the Health Department or the
Steinhatchee Water Association proof.
SCOTI'T HARDEN, SHERIFF
DEPARTMENT
Investigator Scott Harden came
before the Board regarding the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement 2006
Edward Byme Memorial Justice
Assistance Grant (JAG) Program (Item
G. under Clerk Sands below). He
stated that each year over the last few
years the funds have declined. In 2003
the Local Share was $86,344 to be
used by all units of government within
Dixie County and this year the


4, 2006
anticipated amount has declined to
$46,318.
Commissioner Lamb stated that you
can see by looking at the front page of
the Dixie County Advocate that these
funds are being utilized. This Board is
proud of the Dixie County Sheriff
Department.
The Board approved to accept the
leadership and assume the
coordinating role in the development
of application for these funds.
Mr. Harden discussed the SR 349
north and south bound traffic count
survey. The count is 5800 daily near
Old Town with it dropping to 2500 at
the Trading Post.
Someone stated that you see all sorts
of vehicles on this busy highway; such
as, motorized wheelchairs, strollers,
bicycles, etc... They are such a hazard
to the faster traffic.
Commissioner Lamb informed the
public of the joint effort with other
counties that is in progress to get SR
349 widened with turn lanes. Dixie
County is very interested in this project
because of the traffic impact.
CHARLIE KINNARD,
DEVELOPER
Mr. Charlie Kinnard came forward
regarding a proposed emergency room
location in Old Town. It is proposed to
be located near the Herring Real Estate
Office in Old Town. Mr. Kinnard
stated he would like to build it and
give it to the County by amortization.
He stated that he has contacted
SRWMD.
Commissioner Hays discussed the
"Free-standing Emergency Room"
concept.
The Board thanked Mr. Kinnard for
his interest and efforts for this
worthwhile cause. Unfortunately, the
Board can not do anything until
moratorium by State Law has
expired-July '06 sunset, but would
like to keep this option open.

Boyd Works For Rural America
Legislation Would Extend Medicare Payments For
Rural Health Providers
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) today
announced legislation extending important Medicare payment
:provisions set to expire that impact rural healthcare. The
'Medicare Rural Health Provider Payment Extension Act (HR
S5118) would extend certain Medicare payment relief to rural
healthcare providers through 2011.
"Access to affordable, quality healthcare is of great
importance to me and the people of North Florida," said
Congressman Boyd. "Since many rural providers rely on
Medicare to keep their doors open, we need to ensure that they
are adequately reimbursed for their services, and this legislation
goes a long way toward making that happen."
The Medicare Rural Health Provider Payment Extension Act
would extend a number of provisions that benefit a wide range of
providers, including:
Physicians: Extends the Medicare incentive payment
program for physicians practicing in designated Physician
Scarcity Areas. Calhoun, Dixie, Franklin, Gulf, Jackson,
Jefferson, Lafayette, Liberty, Suwannee, Taylor and Walton
Counties are all designated as Physician Scarcity Areas.
Rural Ambulance Providers: Extends Medicare 2 percent
bonus payments for ambulance trips in rural areas.
Rural Hospitals: Extends "hold harmless" treatment for
outpatient services for both sole community hospitals and small
rural hospitals, which includes Doctors' Memorial Hospital in
Perry, Florida. This legislation also extends reasonable cost
payments for clinical lab tests performed by rural hospitals as part
of their outpatient services.
Home Health Services: Extends 5 percent add-on payments
for home health services provided in rural areas.
"With 11 counties in the 2nd Congressional District
classified as Physician Scarcity Areas, this legislation will help
rural hospitals and providers deliver essential health services to
our remote and medically underserved areas," Boyd stated.
S"Rural America should not be overlooked when it comes to
access to healthcare services. 1 am committed to identifying ways
to better meet the unique needs of our rural communities and
ensuring that families in rural areas have access to quality care."

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MAY 4, 2006


S Philman Family Scheduled for Red Belly Day


This week our Dixie Sighting was brought in by Elder Gauther and Elder Butler. Their picture
(shown above) is of an oak snake in the process of devouring an unlucky bird.
Oak snakes or Gray Rat snakes are non-venomous and on average reach 36-72 inches in length.
Their bellies are sandy-gray with their tops having two dark stripes that look like square blotches.
The Oak snake is commonly found near pinelands, hardwood hammocks, cypress strands,
agricultural fields, and residential areas; in other-words -just about everywhere.
It is mostly active at night and as you can see from the picture, very good climbers. You will find
them under rocks and boards and in areas as tight as knot holes and palm fronds.
They feed on lizards, frogs, rodents, birds and their eggs.
SThe Oak snake breeds from April-July, laying 5-27 eggs during the summer months of July-
September.

The Philman Family Band will be making their Red Belly stage debut this year at the Dixie
County Chamber of Commerce's 11th Annual Red Belly Day on Saturday May 27th at Fanning
Springs State Park on the Suwannee River. This group is comprised of fourth generation Gilchrist
County natives and their music reflects their love and respect for this special place called Florida -
a place we are all lucky to call home.
Under the guidance of Amos Philman, this quartet also consists of his wife Christine and his
two brothers, Eldin and Emory. They all sing, with Amos handling most of the lead vocals.
Christine performs on keyboard and percussion, while the brothers play various guitars. The
group has recently completed the recording of their CD of original compositions reflecting their
appreciation of the Florida environment and north Florida rural culture. Their release has received
airplay and favorable response on the Florida Folk Show, which is broadcast on WMNF Radio,
88.5FM from Tampa, on Thursday mornings. Copies should be available for sale at the show, and
probably autographed for no extra charge.
This entertaining group performs primarily at regional festivals and musical events. Their
music has a kind of timeless quality to it that appeals to members of every generation, so they
should be very well received. Amos also does sound production and is available for various
events. The Philman Family is scheduled to perform immediately following the 9:00 AM opening
ceremonies on the main stage.
