Missing Boaters Found Off Horseshoe Coast
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past weekend the United States Coast Guard, Florida Fish & Wildlife (FWC) and Dixie
Emergency Services were called out to find a group of missing boaters who had not returned from a
scalloping trip Sunday evening, July 2"d.
According to Karen Parker, Spokeswoman for the FWC, the Coast Guard received the call at
approximately 10:38 pm from a resident in Horseshoe Beach, stating they were concerned that the
Stout family had not yet returned from a scalloping trip.
The boaters, John Stoutt I, 49, John Stoutt II, 25, and John Stoutt III, age 6, headed out towards
Pepperfish in a 1974 bass boat. After the call a search began. Around 2:15 am on Monday, a Coast
Guard plane spotted a light flicking on and off about 3 miles passed Pepperfish. At 2:35 a Coast
Guard Cutter located the boat and rescued the three boaters.
All were reported to be in good condition. It is not sure just what happened, but motor troubles
are being blamed for stranding the three.

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
June 22nd, 2006 local
firefighters and their families
gathered at Ruth Rains Middle
School for a very special
celebration, the graduation of
13 members of Dixie County's
Emergency Services Volunteer
Fire Staff. This was the first
class held locally, to complete
a state mandated training for
volunteer firefighters.
Chad Reed, Dixie
Emergency Services Director
stated that he and the Board of
County Commissioners have
been working towards having
the training here in Dixie
County. Their first step was to
hire Darian Brown, as Dixie
County Emergency Services
Division Chief of Fire
Operations. Brown is certified
to teach the course, along with
Mike Gantt, Division Chief of
911 and Reed himself. "In the
past our firefighters would
have to travel long distances in
order to attend the training,
making it difficult, if not
impossible for some volunteers
to commit," Reed stated.
"Therefore it was exciting for


us to see these fine men and
women through the process
and receive their certificates,"
he added.
The course covered all
areas of firefighting including,
equipment, fire behavior,
investigation procedures, fire
prevention practices and
safety. Along with 160 hours
of firefighting classes, the
volunteers had to complete a
40 hour First Responders
Course.
All 13 members attending
the classes passed. The next
phase will be for these
firefighters to take the state
test. Once they have passed
the state's exam, they will
have received all of the state
required training and be
certified volunteer firefighters.
Commissioners John
Driggers, Hoyt 'Buddy' Lamb
and Alton Land were on hand
to congratulate the group.
Driggers extended his thanks,
along with those of the other
Commissioners to all the
graduates. "We know that if it
weren't for these fine folks.


Dixie would not be able to
provide the level of service we
are currently able to give
residents," Driggers added.
Brown expressed his
personal thanks to all the
volunteers in Dixie County.
"These graduates represent a
portion of the five county fire
districts along with the Town
of Cross City Fire
Department," Brown stated.
"Not only do they give of their
time to go out and face the
dangers of firefighting; they do
so without compensation,"
Brown stated. "It takes a lot of
dedication to be a firefighter,
and these 13 graduates are
proof of that."
The next class will be held
beginning August I" and is
extended to surrounding
county fire agencies and any
resident wishing to become a
member of their local
volunteer fire services.

For more information you
can call, Dixie County
Emergency Services at 498-

Community Rallies For Benefit

Dinner Held For Shay Knight
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On May 20th, 2006 Shay Knight of Old Town received serious
injuries when he hit the roadway after jumping from his. truck
while it was moving. Rushed to Shands UF Hospital in
Gainesville, Shay remained in critical condition for weeks. Shay's
family and friends kept vigil over the young father of three and
prayed for his recovery. Last Friday, June 30th, Shay was able to
attend a Benefit Dinner held for him at the Cross City Park,
proving that prayers are answered.


Left to right are Leslie & Houston Markham, Leon & Dixie Wright,
and Misty Hysmith. Sitting are April and Shay Knight.

Shay's injuries included a depressed skull fracture as well as
breaking the C2 vertebra. He had fractures around his eyes,
sinuses, and jaw and also had sustained a broken leg. Shay added
that he had quite a bit of "road rash" as well.
Shay was wearing a neck brace and cast and using a walker.
He is experiencing some vision and hearing loss, but hopes as his
body heals those injuries will also continue to heal. All in all,
Shay is a walking miracle.
Shay will continue therapy as an outpatient and will not be able
to return to work for at least a year. Prior to his accident, Shay
worked for W.G. Johnson & Son Construction. Because Shay
doesn't have health insurance and the fact that he will not be able
to work for such a long period of time, Shay's friends Dixie
Wright & Leslie Markham decided to hold a Benefit Dinner for
him.
While Dixie and Leslie were the coordinators, they were quick
to state that the dinner could not have happened if it wasn't for the
generosity of many of the local businesses and Shay's friends. "We
really did well on the dinners," stated Dixie. She noted they even
had to go back and get more chicken in order to have enough for
the lunch crowd after all the advance orders were delivered,
In addition to the dinner, several drawings were held. The
winners of those drawings were as follows the grill donated by
Danny King went to Tony Philmon who gave it to Shay; the gold
anklet, donated by Alexander's Jewelry was Vicky Allen, the Oil
Change, donated by King's BP was Barbara Buzbee and the
Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment System, donated by David and
Carla Downing was won by Jan Higginbotham. Congratulations!
All proceeds from the dinner and drawings will go to help Shay
with expenses during this difficult time for the young family. If
you would like to help this young family out you may do so
through a special fund that has been opened in Shay's name at
Drummond Community Bank.
Shay and wife April stated they were very grateful to everyone
for all they have done for them and their family. He knows he has
a lot more rehabilitation to endure, but having the continued
support of his family and friends will help him through the rough
times.
Shay is the son of Lucy Knight and Tracy & Mary Ann Knight
of Cross City. He and April live in Old Town with their three
children, Burgandy, age 7, Wyatt, age 5, and Braxton, two.

Can we survive the enemy within?
The enemy, it would seem, are not entirely sequestered in
Baghdad bunkers, "safe" houses in Afghanistan and abandoned
warehouses in Miami. An equally dangerous adversary operates
openly and legally (or so it would appear) right here in our midst.
1 am talking not only about the New York Times and its gaggle of
Sclon'es that polluteihf, ir:'Ielec, of nhe ponnnpu from 'ont to coact--
although they carry a substantial measure of the blame, as do their
unisex siblings in the broadcast and entertainment media. However,
we also have to contend with individuals in (officially) high places.
Add to these the freelance agitators and the "professional victims,"
and you have an al-Qaeda support group the likes of which Osama
himself would be hard put to assemble.
As for the Times and the many editors who march in lock-step
with that publication, we need only consider the recent disclosure of
methods our government is using to trace financial transactions
2 undertaken by terrorist groups-unless, of course, we'd care to
touch on ah earlier incidence of the Times exposing a government
system of wiretapping that was very useful in locating domestic
terrorist cells. These kind of "exposes" might win Pulitzer prizes,
but they endanger the lives of American service personnel by giving
aid and comfort to the enemy-a matter once known as "treason."
Note to President Bush: During the American Civil War, not
everyone north of the Mason-Dixon line really cared if the South
seceded from the Union. Lincoln understood that, but when certain
northern newspapers began agitating in the Confederacy's behalf,
Lincoln shut them down. With that in mind, doesn't the Times'
behavior at least rate an investigation?
On the favorable side, it seems the University of Colorado is
belatedly getting rid of Ward Churchill, the professor who said the
victims of the 9/11 attack got what they deserved. Of course, he'll
still make megabucks on the lecture circuit and might even land a
position at an Ivy League college.
There's not a whole lot more to be said about the likes of Cindy
Sheehan, the Ditzy Twits, Michael Moore and the Jersey Girls.
They're in it for the money, and to hell with how their stupidity
impacts on the people who are defending their right to free speech.
It is particularly reprehensible that someone like Jack Murtha,
who served in the Marines, has found himself a niche as the far left's
point man in the House of Representatives. Proclaiming our troops
guilty of war crimes before the alleged incidents have even been
investigated is hardly what you'd expect of a man who fancies
himself a patriot and who aspires to being the next House majority
leader, a prestigious calling second only to that of aspiring House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
It gets worse. The Supreme Court has ruled that the prisoners
being held at Guantanamo Bay are entitled to certain protections
based on the Geneva Convention and cannot be tried at a military
tribunal.
In fact, the Geneva Convention does not apply to the prisoners at
Gitmo. The Geneva Convention covers uniformed military
personnel performing their duties under the command of a
government with which this nation is at war. The Gitmo detainees
are a rag-tag assembly of freelance gunslingers loyal to no
2 government, or at least none they're willing to identify.
However, perhaps we aren't treating them as well as we might.
After all, we could consider arranging for each of them to enjoy the
; company of 72 virgins....
: Letter To The Editor
I would like to express my thanks to Jerry Prater for the
wonderful "Right to the Point" column that he writes.
His gift of the pen as well as his great knowledge and insight
: make his column is a joy to read.
The very important issues that he writes about are always right
on and he is not afraid to speak the truth.
Thank you for a job well done! Also many thanks for his
' superb job of representing the veterans of Dixie County as
: Veterans Administrator.

FHE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : I used to pay child
support through the Clerk's
office for my two children.
Why does it have to go through
the State Disbursement Unit
now?

A In 1994, the Federal
Government passed the
Personal Responsibility and
Work Opportunity
Reconciliation Act, a federal
law requiring all states to have
in operation by October 1,
1999, a centralized receipting
and disbursing unit for cases
being enforced by the Title IV-
D agency and private cases
with an income deduction
order dated on or after January
1, 1994.

Having a single address for
payments made the system
more efficient for payors and
made it easier to track
payments for parents and the
courts. To pay by mail, make
sure your payment has the right
case number, the county name
and your social security
number. Mailed payments
should be sent to the Florida


Ellen Sands
State Disbursement Unit at
FLSDU, P.O. Box 8500,
Tallahassee, FL 32324-8500.

In 2001, an Internet payment
option was put into place. In
keeping with the technological
opportunities afforded us these
days, parents who pay child
support may pay on-line at
www.myfloridacounty.com.
While payments now go to a
single address, the official case
records still reside with the
Clerk of Court.

If you need help filling out the
forms or finding a phone
number for the nearest legal
assistance office, call the
Clerk's Office and ask where
assistance is available.

Tourism Grants From

VISIT FLORIDA
VISIT Florida, the state's official source for travel planning,
has awarded not one, but THREE grants to The Original Florida

"Norman Rockwell" scene
at each community with folks
gathered together while
children played and laughed.
The celebrations continued
throughout the weekend as
fishermen carried their boats
out onto the Gulf for the
beginning of the scallop
harvest while boaters filled the
rivers for a day in the sun and
water; taking advantage of the
long weekend.
It was four days of family,
friends and fellowship.
4th of July is especially
meaningful as we think of our
young men and women
overseas, fighting for the
democracy of others so that
they might be able to
experience the same freedoms
that we hold so dear.
Many thanks to those who
work hard, all year round, to
bring these celebrations to
life.!

Avoid Skin Cancer While You Enjoy the Outdoors


(NAPS)-Here's a bright
idea: There's a beautiful way
you can protect yourself from
an increased risk of skin
cancer.
The Problem
Through the work of non-
profit organizations, such as
The Skin Cancer Foundation,
the connection between sun
exposure and elevated risks
of skin cancer has become
clearly established.
'Twenty-five years ago, few
people knew about the dan-
gers of excessive, cumulative
sun exposure," says Perry
Robins, M.D., president and
founder of The Skin Cancer
Foundation. "While the con-
nection between sun exposure
and skin cancer is widely
known today, statistics show
that the incidence of skin can-
cer is continuing to increase
rapidly. More than 90 percent
of skin cancers are caused by
the sun. Nationally, there are
more new cases of skin cancer
each year than the combined
incidence of breast, prostate,
lung and colon cancer."
Some Solutions
To help combat this grow-
ing health risk, The Skin
Cancer Foundation conducts
extensive educational pro-
grams and regularly reviews
products that can help con-
sumers reduce their health
risks from sun exposure. More
than 300 products in the U.S.
and more than 70 products
overseas have been awarded
the Foundation's Seal of
Recommendation.
Sunbrella brand fabrics are
one of the latest products to
receive the Seal of Recom-
mendation. Sunbrella fabrics
are used for awnings, market
umbrellas and other forms of
shade on decks, patios and at
poolside. You will also find
Sunbrella frequently used on


Market umbrellas are a great
way to enjoy being outside
while avoiding harmful UV
rays.
boats as biminis, covers and
marine awnings. Seeking
shade between 10 a.m. -and 4
p.m. is one of The Skin Cancer
Foundation's core sun protec-
tion recommendations.
In order to receive the
Foundation's Seal, Sunbrella
fabrics were subjected to
extensive testing and met The
Skin Cancer Foundation's
standards for Ultraviolet
Protection Factor (UPF). UPF
is a measure of the amount
of ultraviolet light passing
through the fabric.
"Consumers have long
selected awnings, market
umbrellas and boat tops
made from Sunbrella fabrics
because of the sun protection
they provide," said Harry
Gobble, director of market-
ing for Glen Raven Custom
Fabrics, which manufactures
Sunbrella fabrics. "With the
Foundation's Seal of Recom-
mendation, consumers are
now assured that an inde-
pendent organization has ver-
ified the level of sun protec-
tion provided by products
using our fabrics."

How Not To Fall

(NAPS)-Here's uplifting
news about avoiding dan-
gerous falls.
Falls affect tens of thou-
sands of Americans. In fact,
each year about one-third of
individuals 65 years of age or
older will fall and some will
even be disabled by the bro-
ken bones that can follow. Not
only that, falls kill more than
16,000 Americans a year.
These falls are not just the
result of getting older. They
are usually caused by a num-


ber of factors and by chang-
ing some of these things you
can lower your risk.
In many cases, a fall can.
be caused by medications
you're taking. Common cul-
prits include sedatives, mus-

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER

Cross City Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water
Standards.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an
emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do,
and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we
received on 04/06/06 show that our system exceeds the standard, or maximum contaminant
level (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) which includes both Total Trilnalomethanes
and Haloacetic Acids. The standard for Total Trihalomethanes is 0.080 mg/L. The level of
Total Trihalomethanes over the last year was 0.130 mg/L. The standard for Haloacetic Acids
is 0.060mg/l. The level of Haloacetic Acids over the last year was 0.114 mg/L.
What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over
many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and
may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing Haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over
many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may
choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What happened? What is being done?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the
water and creates the Disinfection Byproduct. The Cross City Water Treatment Plant is
working with our Engineers & The Department of Environmental Protection to resolve this
issue. We anticipate resolving this issue within the next 12 months.
For more information, please contact Ferrell 'Cricket' Spurlin @ (352) 498-5488 or Mike
Cassidy @ (352) 498-3079. Town of Cross City, P.O. Box 417 Cross City, Fl 32628.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially
those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments,
nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public
place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by Cross City WTP. State Water System ID#: 2150243.
Date distributed: 6/28/06

an existing manufactured home park or subdivision, (ii) in a new manufactured home park or subdivision, (iii) in an expansion to an
existing manufactured home park or subdivision, or (iv) in an existing manufactured home park or subdivision on which a
manufactured home has incurred "substantial damage" as the result of a flood, the lowest floor be elevated on a permanent
foundation to (no lower than one foot above) the base flood elevation and be securely anchored to an adequately anchored
foundation system to resist flotation, collapse, and lateral movement.

(b) All manufactured homes to be placed or substantially improved in an existing manufactured home park or subdivision
within Zones A-1, AH, and AE, that are not subject to the provisions of paragraph 4 (a) of this Section, must be elevated so that

(ii) The manufactured home chassis is supported by reinforced piers or other foundation elements of at least an equivalent
strength that are no less than 36 inches {48 inches if one foot of freeboard adopted) in height above the grade and securely
anchored to an adequate foundation system to resist flotation, collapse, and lateral movement.

(c) All recreational vehicles placed on sites within Zones A1-30. AH, and AE must either:

(i) Be on the site for fewer than 180 consecutive days,

(ii) Be fully licensed and ready for highway use (a recreational vehicle is ready for highway use if it is on its wheels or

Section B, provisions (4) (a) and (b) of this Article.

(5) Adequate drainage paths around structures shall be provided on slopes to guide water away from structures.

(6) Standards for streams with established Base Flood Elevations, without Regulatory Floodways

Located within the areas of special flood hazard established in Article 3, Section B, where streams exist for which base flood
elevation data has been provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency without the delineation of the regulatory floodway
(Zones AE and A1-30), the following additional provisions shall also apply.

(a) Until a regulatory floodway is designated, no new construction, substantial improvements, or other development including
fill shall be permitted within the areas of special flood hazard, unless it is demonstrated that the cumulative effect of the proposed
development, when combined with all other existing and anticipated development will not increase the water surface elevation of the
base flood more than one foot at any point within the community.

(b) Development activities which increase the water surface elevation of the base flood by more than one foot may be allowed,
provided that the developer or applicant first applies with the community's endorsement for a conditional FIRM revision, and
receives the approval of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

(7) Floodways. Located within areas of special flood hazard established in Article 3, Section B, are areas designated as
floodways. Since the floodway is an extremely hazardous area due to the velocity of flood waters which carry debris, potential
projectiles and have significant erosion potential, the following additional provisions shall also apply:

(a) Prohibit encroachments, including fill, new construction, substantial improvements and other developments within the
regulatory floodway unless certification (with supporting technical data) by a registered professional engineer is provided through

(2), and the encroachment standards of Article 5, Section B (7) (a), are met.

(c) Development activities including new construction and substantial improvements that increase the water surface elevation
of the base flood by more than one foot may be allowed, provided that the developer or applicant first applies with the community's
endorsement for a conditional FIRM revision, and receives the approval of FEMA.

'(d) When fill is proposed, in accordance with the permit issued by the Florida Department of Health, within the regulatory
floodway, the development permit shall be issued only upon demonstration by appropriate engineering analyses that the proposed
fill will not increase the water surface elevation of the base flood in accordance with Article 5, Section (7) (a).

(8) For all structures located seaward of the Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL), the lowest floor of all new construction and
substantial improvements shall be elevated to the regulatory flood elevation established by the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection or by FEMA in accordance with Article 3, Section B, whichever is higher. All non-elevation design requirements of Article

These areas have flood hazards associated with base flood depths of one to three feet, where a clearly defined channel does not
exist and the path of flooding is unpredictable and indeterminate; therefore, the following provisions apply:

(1) All new construction and substantial improvements of residential structures in all AO Zones shall have the lowest floor,
including basement, elevated above the highest adjacent grade at least as high as the depth number specified in feet on the Flood
1Insurance Rate Map. If no flood depth number is specified, the lowest floor, including basement, shall be elevated to no less than
*two feet above the highest adjacent grade.

,, (2) All new construction and substantial improvements of non-residential structures shall:

if (a) Have the lowest fluor, including basement, elevated above the highest adjacent grade at least as high as the depth
'number specified in feet on the Flood Insurance Rate Map. If no flood depth number is specified, the lowest floor, including
basement, shall be elevated to at-least two feet above the highest adjacent grade, or

(b) Together with attendant utility and sanitary facilities be completely floodproofed to that level to meet the floodproofing
,standard specified in Article 5, Section B (2).

:, (3)Adequate drainage paths around structures shall be provided on slopes to guide water away from structures.


SECTION E. COASTAL HIGH HAZARD AREAS (V-ZONES)

eLocated within areas of special flood hazard established in Article 3, Section B are Coastal High Hazard Areas, designated as Zones
!V1-30, VE, or V (with BFE). The following provisions shall apply for all development activities:

*(1) Meet the Requirements of Article 4, Section A, and Article 5, Sections A, B (except B (7;), C, and D.

(2) All new construction and substantial improvements in Zones V1-V30, VE, and V (with BFE) shall be elevated on pilings or
c,-columns so that:

: a) The bottom of the lowest horizontal structural member of the lowest floor (excluding the pilings or columns) is elevated to no
4:lower than one foot above the base flood elevation whether or not the structure contains a basement; and

b) The pile or column foundation and structure attached thereto is anchored to resist flotation, collapse, and lateral movement
-due to the effects of wind and water loads acting simultaneously on all building components. Water loading will be those values
,associated with the base flood. Wind loading values will be those required by applicable State of Florida or local, if more stringent
than those of the State of Florida, building standards.

(3) A registered professional engineer or architect shall develop or review the structural design, specifications and plans for the
constructiono, and shall certify that the design and methods of construction to be used are in accordance with accepted standards of
Practice for meeting the provisions of this Section.

S(4) Obtain the elevation (in relation to mean sea level) of the bottom of the lowest horizontal structural member of the lowest floor
(excluding pilings and columns) of all new and substantially improved structures. The Floodplain Administrator shall maintain a
,record of all such information.

"(5) All new construction and substantial improvements shall be located landward of the reach of mean high tide.

Steinhatchee Water Association, Inc.

2005 Quality Water Report


We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality"
water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of'
drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect
our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. The Association's wells, which draw from thb
Floridan Aquifer, have been determined to be under the direct influence of surface water. A treatment facility has beef'
constructed to remove any potential harmful constituents. We add chlorine for disinfection and a coagulant to aid in the
sequestration of organic and inorganic solids, including iron. The water is then filtered to remove the sequestered materials.
Additionally, the Association is pursuing additional sources that are not under the influence of surface water.

The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. These assessments
were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. The assessment
results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Rex Dunn at the Steinhatchee Water
Association Office at (352) 498-3576. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want
to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the fourth Thursday of each month at
6:00PM at the Steinhatchee Community Center.

Steinhatchee Water Association routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of
January I to December 31, 2005. Data obtained before January 1, 2005 and presented in this report are from the most recent
testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided
the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level ofa contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration ofa contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.
Treatment Technique (TT): A required process intended to reduce the level ofa contaminant in drinking water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pig/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

We constantly monitor for various contaminants in the water supply to meet all regulatory requirements. Our water system was
in violation of federal and state water quality standards for Haloacetic Acids and Total trihalomethanes. The levels of both
parameters are shown in the Test Results Table. Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL
over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in
excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may
have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Turbidity is a measure of the cloudiness of the water. We monitor it because it is a good indicator of the effectiveness of our
filtration system. High turbidity can hinder the effectiveness of disinfectants.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about
contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking
Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen
the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water
Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Steinhatchee Water Association would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water
treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any
questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

(6) Provide that all new construction and substantial improvements have the space below the lowest floor either free of obstruction
or constructed with nonsupporting breakaway walls, open wood lattice-work, or insect screening intended to collapse under wind and
water loads without causing collapse, displacement, or other structural damage to the elevated portion of the building or supporting
foundation system. For the purpose of this section, a breakaway wall shall have a design safe loading resistance of not less than 10
and no more than 20 pounds per square foot. Use of breakaway walls which exceed a design safe loading resistance of 20 pounds
per square foot (either by design or when so required by local codes) may be permitted only if a registered professional engineer or
architect certifies that the designs proposed meet the following conditions:

a) Breakaway wall collapse shall result from water load less than that which would occur during the base flood; and

b) The elevated portion of the building and supporting foundation system shall not be subject to collapse, displacement, or
other structural damage due to the effects of wind and water loads acting simultaneously on all building components (structural and
nonstructural). The water loading shall be those values associated with the base flood. The wind loading values shall be those
required by applicable Florida or local, if more stringent than those of the State of Florida, building standards.

(c) Such enclosed space shall be useable solely for parking of vehicles, building access, or storage. Such space shall not be
finished, partitioned into multiple rooms, or temperature-controlled.

(7) Prohibit the use of fill for structural support. No development permit shall be issued for development involving fill in coastal high
hazard areas unless it has been demonstrated through appropriate engineering analyses that the subject fill does not cause any
adverse impacts to the structure on site or adjacent structures. Placement of fill that would result in an increase in the base flood
elevation or cause adverse impacts by wave ramping and deflection may be permitted, provided that the permit applicant first applies
for and receives a conditional FIRM revision, fulfilling the requirements for such revisions as established by FEMA.

The Word

Made Flesh
The Mark of the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say again I want to
remind you these things that take
place in the Book of Revelation
are types and shadows of the real
,things coming to pass on earth
(people). This harlot (woman) in
Rev. 17:1 commits fornication
with the inhabitants of the earth.
,,This harlot woman (church) was
riding upon a scarlet colored beast.
This beast was full of the
' names of blasphemy. (Rev. 17:3)
This woman was decked with gold
and precious stones and pearls,
having a golden cup in her hand
full of abominations and filthiness
of her fornication. (Rev. 17:4)
Upon this woman's head was the
answer to what we are reading if
our spiritual eyes and ears were
,. open. 1, the son of man, say the
' scriptures tell us in verse 5 of this
17th chapter, "And upon her
forehead was a name written
mystery, Babylon the great mother
of harlots and abominations of the
earth." (people) The statement we
are going to make about this harlot
(woman) and the beast she is
riding upon, is very distasteful to
religious believers of today.
This is not in malice or hatred
of any kind. I, the son of man, say
neither is it intended to scandalize
any church body of today,
regardless of what they believe.
This beast that the harlot (woman)
is riding is carnal creatures, male
and female, called the human race.
This is the carnal mind of God's
earthly creatures that is not subject
to the Law of God. The very
carnal mind itself becomes enmity
against God. The Apostle Paul
wrote, "For to be carnally minded
is death..." (Romans 8:1) I, the
son of man, say to be carnally
minded does not cause death, but
it is death. Continued next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
Our annual Church Retreat on the River got off to a good start
Saturday, with campers getting set up for the coming week and,
later, enjoying a good supper. On Sunday, we were back at NPBC
for. Sunday morning services, in which Bro. Billy did an excellent
job delivering God's message from Exodus 3:7-14a.
As the week progresses, everyone is enjoying a combination of
*good Christian fellowship with Bible classes, good food, and
recreation on the river. The theme is, "In the Wilderness for
Jesus"...what a blessing it is to have fun serving Him! On
Saturday, July 8th at 6:00 P. M., we will have another wedding at
New Prospect, as Miss Brandi O'Neal and Mr. Willard Driggers
exchange vows. We wish the young couple our very best for the
future. Our Pastor/Deacons will meet on July 10th, followed by
four monthly church business meeting on July 12th.
"I It was a pleasure to have visitors again Sunday, and we
welcome you back, along with all others who would like to pay us
a visit or, even make us your new church home! As always, please
be in prayer for those on the church prayer lists, our President and
other leaders, and our military personnel.
Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Thank You & Goodbye To The
People of Cross City
I want to say thank you to everybody that came in to my
restaurant. When Mr. Tony & me purchased the restaurant on
August 27"', 1992, we were strangers to everybody. But we were
determined to make it work and to make friends, which we did. We
made many, many friends.
The people of Cross City are very caring people.
Restaurant business is not easy, it's very confining, and there
are some that would have closed up, but Mr. Tony & me kept it
going. Not because we had to, but because we wanted to, for you
the people 6f Cross City.
Then on January 6th, 2005 my husband passed away. Which
tore my heart apart, when you loose your spouse everything
changes. We always worked side by side to keep this place going.
Now there's just me, and I can't do it by myself.
First off, there are too many memories of my husband of 35
years in the restaurant and especially in the house.
So I sold everything, and I'm leaving, but before I go I just
wanted to say thank you to everybody.
The very first people we met were Mr. & Mrs. Scott Gantt,
thank you Mr. Scott for everything you have done for us, and for
helping Tony when he asked for help in something he was doing.
Thank you Terry & Debbie Dembo for all of your help, and
Debbie all that you have done for me since Tony's passing.
Thank you to the following: Ricky & Janet Gooding, Eddie &
Julie Smith, Doc & Rookie, Marvin & Phyllis Hunt, Dr. Thomas &
Mrs. Betty, Jerry Fulford, Kevin Futch & Family, Marty & Elaine,
Nina Johnson, Dewey & Lenette Hatcher, and the list goes on. If I
failed to mention your name please forgive me and thank you.
And now this is the hardest part is to say goodbye and thank
you to my employees (my second family).
All names include their families. Ms. Madine, Zorana, Lauren,
Gloria, Marsha, April Hackney, Susie, Jennifer R., Cheryl, Joyce,
Tracey T., and of course Ms. Mary Gray who passed away
November 22, 2004.
I leave you all with great memories and cherished memories.
I will never forget the last fourteen years of my life living in
Cross City, Florida.
I deeply thank you, our customers and employees, I will never
forget you.
I will miss everyone deeply. Wish me well, all my love,
Ms. Linda Linda's Italian Restaurant

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"At the Last Trump"
At (in) the last trump.
I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at (in) the last
trump...
The trumpeting messengers (angels), sounding out the message of God will
raise people out of their dead, carnal state and up into an incorruptible and immortal
life.
Revelation 4:1 And the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet
talking with me:
Yes, this messenger (angel) that talked to John was as the voice of a trumpet
speaking with him.
Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,
and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven
to the other.
You see, the angels (messengers) of God will be the trumpet, and their message
will sound and alert you so that you will understand how to put on the whole
Armour of God.
Ephesians 6:11, 12. Put on the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to
stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this
world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
You and I will then stop wrestling against flesh and blood and begin to wrestle
against the things mentioned in the above scripture.
Ezekiel 13:5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps neither made up the hedge for
the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord.
When the real angels sound their trumpet, it will not be an uncertain sound, but
we will understand and be able to go up into the gap and make up the wall, thus
enabling the house of God to stand.
I Corinthians 14:8,9 For if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall
prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongur words
easy to be understood (significant), how shall it be known what is spoken? For ye
shall speak into the air.
It is because of the uncertain sound of the trumpet being voiced today by the
false ministers of light that confusion reigns in the hearts of many people.
2 Corinthians 11:14,15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an
angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as
the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Now we know that the Bible tells us that Jesus is coming and that there is a
trumpet, and that we will rise to meet the Lord: this is undeniable.
But it is the interpretation of these scriptures that false angels (messengers)
have declared that has brought great misunderstanding.
The voice that you hear speaking will not be from eartf, but from heaven, for
from heaven will the angels gather the elect.
Hebrews 12:16-29 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath
promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And
this word, Yet once more, signified the removing of those things that are shaken, as
of things that are made, that those things, which cannot be shaken, may remain.
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom, which cannot be moved, let us have grace
whereby we may serve God acceptable with reverence and godly fear: For our God
is a consuming fire.
Joel 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain:
let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is
nigh at hand. Continued next week.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JULY 6, 2006


Remembering The 4th of

July At Fanning Springs
Out of the Mouths of Babes Precious memories, how they
linger, how they ever thrill my soul. Once again, as I reminisce the
good old days of my childhood, I think of looking forward to the
4"' of July at Fannin Springs. It was one of the happiest days of the
year to me, and as I remember those good times, I'm sure many
people of my generation will relate to these wonderful and happy
times that we spent on the "Fourths" at "Fannin". Now, we call it
Fanning Springs, but back then, it was simply going to Fannin on
the fourth.
Mama would start planning for the "big day" way ahead of
time. She would make her a new dress, buy some new shoes and
hat, and then she would cut out a pattern and make me a pretty
taffeta dress with lots of ruffles and frills. Most of all, I liked the
pretty wide sash that tied in a big bow in the back. My auburn hair
was long and I would wear a matching bow in the back. I also had
pretty white T-strap shoes and of course a pretty straw hat with
flowers on the brim. The hat was really special and boy was I
going to be dressed up! After all, we were going to see our kinfolks
and friends once again. In fact, everybody wore their Sunday best!
This was a big day of the year and everybody wanted to look their
very best on the "Fourth".
I remember Daddy would back the Model A out of the garage,
soapy it all over and wash it down with the water hose until it
would shine like a new one. All the cars were black then, and did
they look sharp when they were washed and shined. We would put
our suitcases in, and I'd climb into the backseat and settle for the
long trip from Jacksonville to Trenton. I always took along some
firecrackers and sparklers to pop on that big day. Boy, were me
and my cousins going to have a good time!
First, we would go to Aunt Bell's house, she lived close to
Otter Springs. Just about all my kinfolks gathered there to cook
and get prepared for the "Fourth". Everybody would greet each
other with plenty of hugs and kisses (which I could have done
without) and I especially remember how Mama and Daddy would
laugh so loud and shake their hands with such a firm grip. I
remember how Uncle Norman (I think he was really a favorite
Uncle) would pat my head so much it's a wonder I didn't have a
headache. Yes we loved our kinfolks, and I remember hearing all
the stories they shared with each other about things that had
happened since we last saw each other, us kids would get together
and play as hard as we could. It seemed as if we didn't want to
waste a precious minute of being together.
I remember smelling the chicken frying, cakes and pies baking
in the big wood stove, and oh, that good smell of banana pudding
and potato salad. Aunt Effie would make a big dishpan full of
pudding and Aunt Lizzie would cook up the best chicken and rice
and dumpling's I ever ate. Aunt Bell always had a chocolate cake
with icing she would cook. I remember how it would break off in
pieces. It was so good. Us kids would pick the crumbs off the
plate, that was the best part.
The next day was the big day! Dinner on the ground out under
the big oaks with the moss hanging down was something. Boy, we
couldn't hardly wait to see Mama and all the ladies put on their
best prettiest aprons and get out their white starched tablecloths to
spread on that big long table. The men would bring over those big
cardboard boxes full of food and you could smell all that good
dinner as they put it on the table. Seemed like that table stretched
from the entrance down to the springs. I remember it was usually a
hot day and how good that iced tea and lemonade tasted, it was so
sweet and cold. I think what I liked best was going up and down
the table and picking out what you liked. There was every kind of
eakes and pies you could imagine. Boy we stuffed ourselves. It
was so beautiful out under those huge oak trees. I remember the
sounds of laughter, people eating and talking, seemed like nobody
had a care in the world. ... .. : .. .
After dinner was over and, all the food was packed up, we
would go down to the springs and see what was going on. People
were swimming and sitting with their feet in the icy-cold water and
some were sliding down a high slide down into the springs. I never
had enough courage to try that, mostly it was boys and could they
holler and yell as they hit the water. Mama was usually close
around so she probably had something to say about me trying out
that slide.
What I liked best I think, was roller-skating in the rink. I loved
to skate, doing all those fancy turns, and it-was so much fun going
round and round the rink. Music was playing and it was great! I
remember how hard that floor was a few times too! There was a
porch built out from the rink out over the springs. We would go out
there and look down into that beautiful deep blue water. The diving
boards were triple and only the bravest would jump off the top one,
not me. I couldn't swim but I remember the thrill of seeing kids
dive and how people would clap for them. Everything was so much
fun! Now I loved the rides. There was a Ferris Wheel, swings and
a merry-go-round. I got a funny feeling one time on the Ferris
wheel and I remember leaving some of that good old dinner up in
the top of the trees with the moss hanging down. I didn't ride
anymore for a while..(l still get a queasy feeling today when I look
at a Ferris-wheel going around). I remember seeing ladies sitting
,ut under the trees holding their babies in their arms with the little
-ones stretched out on pretty homemade quilts taking a nap. They
didn't seem to mind all the people talking and laughing and.
splashing water. It was so cool and once in a while a warm breeze
,would blow and the moss would move gently. You could smell the
aroma of onions frying, and I know those were the best
hamburgers and hot dogs with slaw and pickles and plenty of cold
.drinks sunk down in tubs of ice.
;:; Speaking of ice, I remember always seeing a kind of short,
stout man with a white apron on and he shaved a big block of ice
'and made snowballs. He would put a big round ball of ice in a
white pointed paper cup and squirt whatever flavor you would pick


out. There was a jug of red, orange and purple. I always chose the
red because it tasted like strawberry and would make my tongue
and lips red. When it began to melt, us kids would bite off the tip
of the cup and suck the juice out of the bottom. Most boys got
purple and would stick their tongues out at the girls. Ugh! Once in
a while I would drip some on my pretty pink taffeta dress and
Mama would take out her white handkerchief and wipe me off
with a little warning to be "careful next time".
About the time everything was going good. It would cloud up
and begin to rain. It could rain the hardest on the 4"' of July. It
always rained! I remember we were standing under a canopy and
some smart alecky boy pushed his finger up in the top of it and all
the water poured down on my pretty new hat. It was just soaked
and flopped down on my ears. Mama said, "Don't worry, just
throw it away and I'll buy you another one." That made me so
mad, but the rain finally stopped and the sun came out, and I soon
forgot about it. Now the horse racing could begin. Everybody
loved to watch the boys ride. I remember how pretty the horses
were and before the race, I remember how they were tied up to the
low tree limbs in the shade. They were restlessly waiting for the
big race. Mama always warned me not to get too close behind their
heels. Every once in a while, I would see Daddy over out under the
trees leaning on the fender of some car talking and laughing
heartily with his old friends. He always did that as long as I can
remember and seemed to enjoy life so much.
Well, the day would finally come to a close and another big
"Fourth" had passed once again. Yes it was a good day never to be
forgotten. I', glad I enjoyed that part of my life. Oh, we still
celebrate, but something is missing. We still have fried chicken,
banana pudding, ice cold watermelons and chocolate cake, but
maybe it would be a happier 4th of July if we could find, once
again, that true love and lasting friendship that was felt so strongly
between people as in days gone by.
Time did seem to move slower then, maybe that's it, time is
moving along so fast now, we just can't find the time to really
enjoy life and each other. Maybe if we would try harder.
But we have memories of those good old days. I can still hear
the laughter and the sounds of the "Fourth" in my ears. The
splashing of the water, the music, of the rides and skating rink, the
children running to and fro, babies crying, comforted by their
mom's, the whinny of the horses, smells of hamburgers and
onions, watermelon just cut, snowballs, the rattle of wagons and
cars as they turned into the woods and parked out under the trees,
yes those were the precious memories. I often wonder if the old
oak trees with the moss hanging down ever look down upon those
happy scenes of yesterday and remember what it was like on the
"Fourth at Fannin". I wonder...
Written with wonderful memories and love of yesterday.

iD trg(b2? I'


The Buddy Show
'B Buddy aMfarli
In appreciation of Bobby B.

A few days after Beatle George Harrison was found
guilty of plagiarizing "My Sweet Lord," about four
weeks before Muhammad Ali retained his
heavyweight boxing championship with a 15-round
decision over Ken Norton at Yankee Stadium and
maybe five weeks before the New York Giants opened
their new stadium in the Meadowlands, Bobby
Bowden coached his first game at Florida State.
At 76, the venerable Bowden is still rolling A
along, hoping to improve on his career record of 359
coaching victories (five more than Joe Patero), two
national titles and 12 Atlantic Coast Conference
championships. He shows no signs of slowing down
and says he has no plans to retire.
Bowden, our modem day Pop Warner or Amos Alonzo
Stagg, will be teeing it up for his 31st year in Tallahassee and all
signs point to a season of promise for the Seminoles. He needs to
turn things around after last year's 8-5 record. The schedule favors
that happening.
Once the 'Noles get past the opener on Labor Day
night with Miami and until they play host to Florida in the final
game -FSU should be favored in every game against Troy,
Clemson, Rice, N.C. State, Duke, Boston College, Maryland,
Virginia, Wake Forest and Western Michigan.
Many of the experts rate FSU as the favorite to win the
ACC, but they are in the second 10 in most pre-season magazine
polls.
'Nole fans should treasure these days with Bowden, who
has nurtured the program into national prominence and will leave
a giant hole when lie's gone. If lie doesn't win at least 10 games
this season, however, he'll find out that even loyal FSU fans have
a'short memory.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Loved the pick of Duke J. J. Redick by the
Orlando Magic, except for the fact that Blue Devil point guards
have the same rap against them as do Florida quarterbacks in the
NFL "products of the system."
2. What does it say about Ron Zook's alleged
recruiting prowess when not one of his recruits has made All-
American, or in most cases, even first team All-SEC?
3. Tony Bennett may have left his heart in San Francisco,
but the Cardinals left their arms at home when they went up
against the American League in interleague play.
4. Somehow, the July 4th weekend celebration just doesn't
go with World Cup soccer, does it?
5. Coach Herb Brooks is remembered for winning one
game beating Russian at the Lake Place Olympics but that's
enough for me to warrant his induction into the Hockey Hall of
Fame.
Short Stuff
You gotta figure Evander Holyfield must have seen
"Cinderella Man" and the life story of James J. Braddock -
otherwise why would he think to make a comeback at 43 without
having fought in two years? ... The sins of Jose Canseco, who
signed with the independent San Diego Surf Dawgs, suddenly
don't look quite so scarlet with all the other juicers in baseball.


This Just In
Kids sports would be a lot better off without so
many whining, complaining, stage-door mother and father types
who are always fostering the idea that the officials, the media and
the coaches are all out to cheat their kid of their rightful place in
sporting immortality.
Buddy's E-mail Bag
Dear Buddy: I tried. I really did.
Still though, I doubt if I will ever watch
another soccer game again. It is just not the
9^ lack of scoring that bothers me. How can the
rules allow the defense to create an offsides
.." : ~that destroys a good offensive maneuver from
possibly scoring a goal? What plays are they
trying to run? How does dribbling well and
controlling the ball with your feet help you
score a goal? Why do most of the players just
sort of stand around? Why does it seem that a
1-0 game is a blowout? What is the purpose of a coach during the
game? How can we pay Beckham so much money when he
deflects the ball off of someone else's body? Where is the skill in
that? Why do the American players and fans act crazily when
another team scores for us? Why should the United States lose to
Ghana in anything that is supposed to be a sport? -- Jim
Wasowski, Rotonda West
Jim: Good questions all. I think you summed up well our
confusion about soccer.
Nothing But 'Net
(With a little help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Clipboard
Mergers we'd all like to see
Hale Business Systems, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fuller Brush, and
W. R. Grace Co. will merge and become: Hale, Mary, Fuller,
Grace. Polygram Records, Warner Bros., and Zesta Crackers join
forces and become: Poly, Warner Cracker. Fairchild Electronics
and Honeywell Computers will become: Fairwell Honeychild.
Wish I'd said that
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife,
you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a
philosopher."- Socrates
Buddy's Florida Factoids
1. Ten Pulitzer Prizes have been awarded to writers
who lived on Key West, including Ernest Hemingway.
2. Crystal River is the only place in North America
where it is legal to have a supervised swim with manatees.
3. The Florida Everglades are the only place in the
world where alligators and crocodile co-exist.
Bumper Sticker, Sign or T-shirt
1. Women work all the time. Men put up signs when
they work.
2. Instant human. Just add coffee.
3. I put the stud in study
Today's Corny Joke
Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the
other: "Does this taste funny to you?"
Today's Proverb
When your son is young, discipline him; when he
grows older, be a brother to him.
And Good Morning ...
... And happy birthday to all you Independence Day

June 23-29, 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
BRADFORD COUNTY
June 26, Lt. Gary Knowles was on foot patrol
at Sampson Trestle when he observed a
personal watercraft in the canal connecting
Rowell and Sampson Lakes. The operator was
not wearing a personal flotation device (PFD).
Knowles summoned the vessel to shore and
after a records check on the operator, discovered
an outstanding warrant through Putnam County
for violation of probation. The subject was cited
for not wearing a PFD and transported to the
Bradford County Jail.
DUVAL COUNTY
Investigator Jason Boswell has concluded his
investigation of the April 16 boating accident
that occurred on the St. John's River. The
vessel operator was arrested June 23 by Boswell
and Officer Chip Butler. The State Attorney's
Office concurred with Boswell's findings that
the fatality was the result of the operator's
reckless operation. The operator was charged
with vessel homicide, a second-degree felony.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY- COPS
Officer Bryan Humphries conducted two public
speaking assignments in Mayo. One was at the
Lafayette County Public Library and was
attended by approximately 75 elementary
students. The topics were the FWC core
missions and alligator management that


included a small alligator for display. At the
conclusion of this program, Humphries was
asked to do a similar presentation at the
Lafayette Elementary School Library the same
evening.
NASSAU COUNTY
Investigator Paul Graham responded to a
boating accident June 23 at 7:15 p.m. on the St.
Mary's River in the vicinity of Scott's Landing.
The accident occurred while several people
were playing in the water when a boat launched
and ran over a four-year-old female. The child
suffered a laceration to her abdomen. She was
transported to Shands Hospital in Jacksonville
via helicopter. The investigation is continuing
with charges pending consultation with the
State Attorney's Office.
TAYLOR COUNTY
June 27, FWC Officers Randy McDonald and
Chad Albritton watched a boat strike a very
large net in the area of Hickory Mound
Impoundment. The officers waited until the
netters had the net partially retrieved before
they revealed themselves. Upon inspection of
the net boat, the officers found the subjects
fishing with three attached nets measuring over
6,500 square feet. One of the nets had 15
meshes per 6-inch tie and the two remaining
nets had 1 'A-inch bar and 3-inch stretched
mesh. All three entanglement nets were seized.
The subjects from Sopchoppy are being charged
with one felony for taking marine life with a net
over 2,000 square feet and 13 misdemeanor
violations. Both subjects had prior net arrests
by the FWC.


U.S. Coast Guard Activates Rescue 21


Communications System in
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. The U.S. Coast
Guard has begun using a new command, control
and communications system known as Rescue
21, for search and rescue, marine environmental
protection and homeland security missions
along the Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida
coastlines.
Advanced direction-finding capability, a
critical component of Rescue 21, allows Coast
Guard watchstanders to more accurately locate
the source of a distress call. That capability also
allows the Coast Guard to locate the source of
hoax calls. Rescue 21 also includes a network of
towers to help reduce coverage gaps in coastal.
areas and ensure more calls get through to the
Coast Guard.
"The system provides a revolutionary leap
in enhanced command, control, and
communications capabilities," said Capt. Dan
Abel, Rescue 21 Project Manager. "Given our
long and proud history of standing the watch,
such leading edge technology will radically
improve the efficiency of search and rescue
operations and offers interoperability with other
federal, state and local law enforcement
agencies, and with first responders across all
rescue or homeland security missions in, the
coastal area," he said.

Proving its mettle following hurricanes
Katrina and Rita, is the Disaster Recovery
System (DRS),.a critical component of Rescue
21. A fully autonomous, rapidly deployable
emergency communications package, it
provides voice and data connectivity if a man-
made or natural disaster destroys the existing
communications infrastructure. The DRS
connects to the Coast Guard Data Network
(CGDN+) via satellite communications. For six
months, it reliably provided one-way
communications with mariners, in the
southeastern portion of the Mississippi River
and Gulf Coast region. Currently, four systems


Gulf States
are staged in Huntsville, Ala. for quick
deployment.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration has predicted eight to 10
hurricanes in the Atlantic for 2006; at least half
of which are expected to be the strength of
Category Three storms. Currently, four of the
deployable systems are staged in Huntsville,
Ala., for Gulf Coast response efforts.
"The Rescue 21 system has been accepted
at an especially critical time of year in the Gulf
States," said Abel. "It provides vital technology
to increase the capabilities of our Coast Guard
crews at a vital time when summer search and
rescue pace increases and tropical storms or
hurricanes put mariners and coastal residents at
risk."
A $730 million acquisition project and the
second largest within the Coast Guard, Rescue
21 will replace the Coast Guard's aging National
Distress and Response System, built during the
1970s. Once fully implemented, Rescue 21 will
cover 95,000 miles of U.S. coastline and inland
waterways.
By the Numbers
First life is saved using Rescue 21 system:
November 2005
First Rescue 21 system commissioned
Atlantic City, N.J., December 2005
Two initial Operating Capacity regions ;
Atlantic City, N.J., and Eastern Shore,
(Maryland, Delaware and Virginia) accepted
Rescue 21 in 2005
First Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP)
region accepted Rescue 21 in Alabama,
Louisiana and Mississippi, May 19, 2006
Sector St. Petersburg, Fla., the second of
four LRIP regions, accepted the system June 29,
2006
Nationwide rollout to about 40 additional
regions is slated for completion by 2011.

The following report, which is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is designed to inform you about the
quality of water we deliver to our customers. Our goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking
water. Our wells draw ground water from the Floridan Aquifer, a common local drinking water source. The treatment
process includes filtration, disinfection, and stabilization. Any questions about this report, or our water utility, should be /
directed to our certified water operator, Ferrell Spurlin at 498-5488 or City Manager, Ronald Cassidy at 498-3079. The -
public is invited to attend and participate in our regular Town Meetings, which are held in the City Hall, 99 NE 210 Ave in
Cross City, at 7:00 p.m., on the second and fourth Mondays of each month.

The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. These
assessments were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells.
The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at
www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

The Cross City Water Department routinely monitors for contaminants in our drinking water according to Federal and
State laws and regulation. The included table shows the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1" to December
31 2005. Data obtained before January 1, 2005, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in
accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, ifexceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that
a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control ofmicrobial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l)- one part by weight ofanalyte to I million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/l)- one part by weight ofanalyte to I billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

Total Coliform. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful, bacteria may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of
potential problems.
TTHMs [Total Trihalomethanes]. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over
many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.

Haloacetic acids (five) (HAA5): Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over
many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-


compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants,
people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from
infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on
appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available
from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). )

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday June 29th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. The
Red and White Log Cabin
were taken out of the frame
and Goldie will hem it at
home. A Dresden Plate was
put together and will be quilted
later to be given away next
year. Shirley put together a
Butterfly and what fun we had
telling her how to do it.
Everyone has their own
way and there were ten quilters
telling her how to get it ready.
She finally got it done and will
quilt it at home but she will
always remember all the
advice got.
We have had a lot of fabric
and books come in this week.
One lady from Lady Lake
brought in three boxes of
beautiful quilt fabric and as
this is brought we try to make
all kinds of crafts that we sell
very reasonably for the upkeep
of the Museum. Some ask
.1 .1A M .,


how we can sell for so little but
all it takes is time. We do
appreciate so many that keep
so busy.
Lunch was very good
today, meat loaf, mashed
potatoes with cheese, green
beans, rice, cheese and mac,
potato salad, tossed salad,
coconut pie, jello, butter pecan
cake, cherry cheese cake and
so much more.

The past is not a package
one can lay away.

S'AN ORDINANCE OF THE DIXIE COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ADOPTING REGULATIONS REGARDING
FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT, ADOPTING DEFINITIONS, STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION, FINDINGS OF FACT, PURPOSE
AND OBJECTIVES, GENERAL PROVISIONS, ADMINISTRATION, PROVISIONS FOR FLOOD HAZARD REDUCTION,
VARIANCE PROCEDURES, SEVERABILITY, AND SETTING AN EFFECTIVE DATE



.ARTICLE 1. STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION, FINDINGS OF FACT, PURPOSE, AND OBJECTIVES

SECTION A. STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION

The Legislature of the State of Florida has authorized and delegated in Chapters 125 Florida Statutes, the responsibility of local
government units to adopt regulations designed to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare of its citizenry. Therefore,
the BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS of DIXIE COUNTY, FLORIDA does hereby adopt the following floodplain
management regulations.

SECTION B. FINDINGS OF FACT

(1) The flood hazard areas of DIXIE COUNTY, FLORIDA are subject to periodic inundation, which results in loss of life and
property, health and safety hazards, disruption of commerce and governmental services, extraordinary public expenditures for flood
protection and relief, and impairment of the tax base, all of which adversely affect the public health, safety and general welfare.

(2) These flood losses are caused by the cumulative effect of obstructions in floodplains causing increases in flood heights and
velocities, and by the occupancy in flood hazard areas by uses vulnerable to floods or hazardous to other lands which are
inadequately elevated, flood-proofed, or otherwise unprotected from flood damages.

SECTION C. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

It is the purpose of this ordinance to promote the public health, safety and general welfare and to minimize public and private losses
due to flood conditions in specific areas by provisions designed to:

(1) Restrict or prohibit uses which are dangerous to health, safety and property due to water or erosion hazards, which result in
damaging increases in erosion or in flood heights and velocities;

(2) Require that uses vulnerable to floods including facilities which serve such uses be protected against flood damage throughout
their intended life span;

(3) Control the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective barriers which are involved in the
accommodation of flood waters;

(4) Control filling, grading, dredging and other development which may increase erosion or flood damage; and
S(5) Prevent or regulate the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert floodwaters or which may increase flood
hazards to other lands.

SECTION D. OBJECTIVES

Thep objectives of this ordinance are to:

41) Protect human life, health and to eliminate or minimize property damage;

(2) Minimize expenditure of public money for costly flood control projects;

(3) Minimize the need for rescue and relief efforts associated with flooding and generally undertaken at the expense of the general
public;

(4) Minimize prolonged business interruptions;

(5) Minimize damage to public facilities and utilities such as water and gas mains, electric, telephone and sewer lines, roadways,
and bridges and culverts located in floodplains;

(6) Maintain a stable tax base by providing for the sound use and development of flood prone areas in such a manner as to
minimize flood blight areas; and

(7) Ensure that potential homebuyers are notified that property is in a flood hazard area.

ARTICLE 2. DEFINITIONS

Unless specifically defined below, words or phrases used in this ordinance shall be interpreted so as to give them the meaning they
have ioncommon usage and to give this ordinance its most reasonable application.

Accessory structure (Appurtenant structure) means a structure that is located on the same parcel of property as the principal
structure and the use of which is incidental to the use of the principal structure. Accessory structures should constitute a minimal
investment, may not be used for human habitation, and be designed to have minimal flood damage potential. Examples of
accessory structures are detached garages, carports, storage sheds, pole barns, and hay sheds.

Appeal means a request for a review of the Floodplain Administrator's interpretation of any provision of this ordinance or a request
for a variance.

Area of shallow flooding means a designated AO or AH Zone on the community's Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) with base
flood depths from one to three feet where a clearly defined channel does not exist, where the path of flooding is unpredictable and
indeterminate, and where velocity flow may be evident. Such flooding is characterized by ponding or sheet flow.

Area of special flood hazard is the land in the floodplain within a community subject to a one- percent or greater chance of flooding
in any given year. This term .is synonymous with the phrase "special flood hazard area."

Base flood means the flood having a one percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year (also called the "100-year
flood" and the "regulatory flood"). Base flood is the term used throughout this ordinance.

base Flood Elevation means the water-surface elevation associated with the base flood.

Bsament means that portion of a building having its floor sub-grade (below ground level) on all sides.

Breakaway wall means a wall that is not part of the structural support of the building and is intended through its design and
construction to collapse under specific lateral loading forces without causing damage to the elevated portion of the building or the
supporting foundation system.

Building -see Structure.

Coastal high hazard area means an area of special flood hazard extending from offshore to the inland limit of a primary frontal
dune along an open coast and any other area subject to high velocity wave action from storms or seismic sources. The area is
designated on the FIRM as Zone V1 V30, VE, or V.

Datum A reference surface used to ensure that all elevation records are property related. Many communities have their own datum
that was developed before there was a national standard. The current national datum is the National Geodetic Vertical Datum
(NGVD) of 1929, which is expressed in relation to mean sea level, or the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988.

4Dvelopment means any man-made change to Improved or unimproved real estate, including, but not limited to
buildings or other structures, mining, dredging, filling, grading, paving, excavating, drilling operations, or storage of materials or
equipment.

Elevated building means a non-basement building built to have the lowest floor elevated above the ground level by foundation
walls, posts, piers, columns, pilings, or shear walls.


Arl1l 1 14


New Construction means, for floodplain management purposes, any structure for which the "start of construction" commenced on
or after the effective date of the initial floodplain management code, ordinance, or standard based upon specific technical base flood
elevation data that establishes the area of special flood hazard include only one date. The term also includes any subsequent
improvements to such structures. For flood insurance rates, structures for which the start of construction commenced on or after the
effective date of the date of an initial FIRM or after December 31, 1974, whichever is later include only one date, and includes any
subsequent improvements to such structures.

New manufactured home park or subdivision means a manufactured home park or subdivision for which the construction of
facilities for servicing the lots on which the manufactured homes are to be affixed (including at a minimum, the installation of utilities,
the construction of streets, and either final site grading or the pouring of concrete pads) is completed on or after the effective date of
the first floodplain management code, ordinance or standard.

North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988 means a vertical control used as a reference for establishing varying elevations
within the floodplain.

Free of Obstruction means any type of lower area enclosure or other construction element that will obstruct the flow of velocity
water and wave action beneath the lowest horizontal structural member of the lowest floor of an elevated building during a base
flood event is not allowed. This requirement applies to the structures in velocity zones (V-Zones).

Program deficiency means a defect in the community's floodplain management regulations or administrative procedures that
impairs effective implementation of those floodplain management regulations or of the standards required by the National Flood
Insurance Program.

See COUNTY LEGAL, Pg. 18


Encroachment means the advance or infringement of uses, plant growth, fill, excavation, buildings, permanent structures or
development into a floodplain, which may impede or alter the flow capacity of a floodplain.

Existing Construction means, for the purposes of floodplain management, structures for which "the start of construction" commenced
before the data of the initial Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). Existing construction, means for the purposes of determining rates
structures for which the "start of construction" commenced before the effective date of the first FIRM or before January 1, 1975,
for FIRMs effective before that date. This term may also be referred to as "existing structures".

Existing manufactured home park or subdivision means a manufactured home park or subdivision for which the construction of
facilities for servicing the lots on which the manufactured homes are to be affixed (including at a minimum the installation of utilities,
the construction of streets, and either final site grading or the pouring of concrete pads) is completed before the effective date of the
floodplain management regulations adopted by a community.

Expansion to an existing manufactured home park or subdivision means the preparation of additional sites by the construction
of facilities for servicing the lots on which the manufactured homes are to be affixed (including the installation of utilities, the
construction of streets, and either final site grading or the pouring of concrete pads).

Flood or flooding means:

(a) A general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of normally dry land areas from:

(1) The overflow of inland or tidal waters.

(2) The unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source.
(3) Mudslides (i.e., mudflows) which are proximately caused by flooding as defined in paragraph (a) (2) of this definition and
are akin to a river of liquid and flowing mud on the surface of normally dry land areas, as when earth is carried by a current of water
and deposited along the path of the current.

(b) The collapse or subsidence of land along a shore of a lake or other body of water as the result of erosion or undermining
caused by waves or currents of water exceeding anticipated cyclical levels or suddenly caused by an unusually high water level in a
natural body of water, accompanied by a severe storm or by an unanticipated force of nature, such as a flash flood or an abnormal
tidal surge or by some similarly unusual and unforeseeable event which results in flooding as defined in paragraph (a) (1) of this
definition.

Flood Boundary and Floodway Map (FBFM) means the official map of the community on which the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) has delineated the areas of special flood hazard and regulatory floodways.

Flood Hazard Boundary Map (FHBM) means an official map of the community, issued by FEMA, where the boundaries of the
areas of special flood hazard have been identified as only Approximate Zone A.

Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) means an official map of the community, issued by FEMA, which delineated both the areas of
special flood hazard and the risk premium zones applicable to the community.

Flood Insurance Study (FIS) is the official hydraulic & hydrologic report provided by FEMA. The study contains an examination,
evaluation, and determination of flood hazards, and, if appropriate, corresponding water surface elevations, or an examination,
evaluation, and determination of mudslide (i.e., mnudflow) and other flood-related erosion hazards. The study may also contain flood
profiles, as well as the FIRM, FHBM (where applicable), and other related data and information.

Floodplain means any land area susceptible to being inundated by water from any source (see definition of "flooding").

Floodplain management means the operation of an overall program of corrective and preventive measures for reducing flood
damage and preserving and enhancing, where possible, natural resources in the floodplain, including but not limited to emergency
preparedness plans, flood control works, floodplain management regulations, and open space plans.

Floodplain Administrator is the individual appointed to administer and enforce the floodplain management regulations of the
community.

Floodplain management regulations means this ordinance and other zoning ordinances, subdivision regulations, building codes,
health regulations, special purpose ordinances (such as floodplain ordinance, grading ordinance, and erosion control ordinance),
and other applications of police power which control development in flood-prone areas. This term describes Federal, State of
Florida, or local regulations in any combination thereof, which provide standards for preventing and reducing flood loss and damage.

Floodproofing means any combination of structural and non-structural additions, changes, or adjustments to structures, which
reduce or eliminate flood damage to real estate or improved real property, water and sanitary facilities, structures and their contents.

Floodway means the channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to
discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than a designated height.

Floodway fringe means that area of the floodplain on either side of the regulatory floodway where encroachment may be permitted
without additional hydraulic and/or hydrologic analysis.

Freeboard means the additional height, usually expressed as a factor of safety in feet, above a flood level for purposes of floodplain
management. Freeboard tends to compensate for many unknown factors, such as wave action, bridge openings and hydrological
effect of urbanization of the watershed, that could contribute to flood heights greater than the height calculated for a selected
frequency flood and floodway conditions.

Functionally dependent use means a use that cannot be used for its intended purpose unless it is located or carried out in close
proximity to water, such as a docking or port facility necessary for the loading and unloading of cargo or passengers, shipbuilding or
ship repair. The term does not include long-term storage, manufacture, sales, or service facilities.

Hardship as related to variances from this ordinance means the exceptional hardship associated with the land that would result from
a failure to grant therequested variance The community requires that the variance. is exceptional; unusual, and peculiar to the
propertyinvolved.. Mereeconomip or financial hardship alone is nol exceplionaJ Inconvenience, aesthetic considerations, physical
handicaps, personal preferences, or the disapproval of one's neighbors likewise cannot, as a rule, qualify as an exceptional
hardship. All of these problems can be resolved through other means without granting a variance, even if the alternative is more
expensive, or requires the property owner to build elsewhere or put the parcel to a different use than originally intended.

Highest adjacent grade means the highest natural elevation of the ground surface, prior to the start of construction, next to the
proposed walls of a structure.

Historic Structure means any structure that is:

a) Listed individually in the National Register of Historic Places (a listing maintained by the Department of Interior) or preliminarily
determined by the Secretary of the Interior as meeting the requirements for individual listing on the National Register:

b) Certified or preliminarily determined by the Secretary of the Interior as contributing to the historical significance of a registered
historic or a district preliminarily determined by the Secretary to qualify as a registered historic district:

c) Individually listed on the Florida inventory of historic places, which has been approved by the Secretary of the Interior, or

d) Individually listed on a local inventory of historic places in communities with historic preservation programs that have been .
certified either:

1. By the approved Florida program as determined by the Secretary of the Interior, or

2. Directly by the Secretary of the Interior.

Lowest adjacent grade means the lowest elevation, after the completion of construction, of the ground, sidewalk, patio, deck
support, or basement entryway immediately next to the structure.

Lowest floor means the lowest floor of the lowest enclosed area (including basement). An unfinished or flood resistant enclosure,
used solely for parking of vehicles, building access, or storage, in an area other than a basement, is not considered a building's
lowest floor, provided that such enclosure is not built so as to render the structure in violation of the nonelevation design standards of
this ordinance.

Mangrove Stand means an assemblage of mangrove trees which are mostly low trees noted for a copious development of
interlacing adventitious roots above ground and which contain one or more of the following species: Black mangrove (Avicennia
Nitida); red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle); white mangrove (Languncularia Racemosa); and buttonwood (Conocarpus Erecta).

Manufactured home means a building, transportable in one or more sections, which is built on a permanent chassis and designed
to be used with or without a permanent foundation when connected to the required utilities. The term also includes park trailers,
travel trailers, and similar transportable structures placed on a site for 180 consecutive days or longer and intended to be improve
property.

Manufactured home park or subdivision means a parcel (or contiguous parcels) of land divided into two or more manufactured
home lots for rent or sale.

Market value means the building value, which is the property value excluding the land value and that of the detached accessory
structures and other improvements on site (as agreed to between a willing buyer and seller) as established by what the local real
estate market will bear. Market value can be established by an independent certified appraisal (other than a limited or curbside
appraisal, or one based on income approach), Actual Cash Value (replacement cost depreciated for age and quality of construction
of building), or adjusted tax-assessed values.

Mean Sea Level means the average height of the sea for all stages of the tide. It is used as a reference for establishing various
elevations within the floodplain. For purposes of this ordinance, the term is synonymous with National Geodetic Vertical Datum
(NGVD) of 1929, or North American Vertical Datum (NAVD) of 1988.

National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD) of 1929 means a vertical control used as a reference for establishing varying elevations
within the floodplain.

placement of permanent construction of a building (including a manufactured home) on a site, such as the pouring of slabs or
footings, installation of piles, construction of columns, or any work beyond the stage of excavation or placement of a manufactured
home on a foundation. Permanent construction does not include land preparation, such as clearing, grading and filling; nor does it
include the installation of streets and/or walkways; nor does it include excavation for a basement, footings, piers or foundations or
the erection of temporary forms; nor does it include the installation on the property of accessory buildings, such as garages or sheds

Substantial improvement means any reconstruction, rehabilitation, addition, or other improvement of a structure, the cumulative
cost of which equals or exceeds 50 percent of the market value of the structure before the "start of construction" of the improvement.
This term includes structures that have incurred "substantial damage" regardless of the actual repair work performed. This term
does not, however, include any repair or improvement of a structure to correct existing violations of State of Florida or local health,
sanitary, or safety code specifications, which have been identified by the local code enforcement official prior to the application for
permit for improvement, and which are the minimum necessary to assure safe living conditions.

Substantially improved existing manufactured home parks or subdivisions is where the repair, reconstruction, rehabilitation or
improvement of the streets, utilities and pads equals or exceeds 50 percent of the value of the streets, utilities and pads before the
repair, reconstruction or improvement commenced.

Variance is a grant of relief from the requirements of this ordinance.

Violation means the failure of a structure or other development to be fully compliant with the requirements of this ordinance. A
structure or other development without the elevation certificate, other certifications, or other evidence of compliance required in this
ordinance is presumed to be in violation until such time as that documentation is provided.
