Old Town Man

Fatally Injured In

Weekend Accident
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
An Old Town man was fatally injured after he was ejected
from his moped this past Sunday, July 91', 2006. An accident
occurred in the early morning hours, approximately 1:40am on NE
824,h Street (Jungle Drive).
, According to a press release from the Florida Highway Patrol
Investigator Corporal Lena Ward, twenty-year-old James Earl
Cooper, III was traveling south on NE 824"t Street when he failed
to negotiate a curve and lost control of his moped. Cooper
overturned as he ran off onto the shoulder and then hit a road sign.
Cooper was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Cooper, known to family and friends as "Hambone", was a
lifelong resident of Dixie County. Services for the young man
were held this past Wednesday at the Rick Gooding Funeral Home.


FWC Reminds Boaters

To Be Prepared & Safe
Over the past two weeks three boats were reported overdue or
missing off Dixie's coastline. The first over the 4 of July weekend
where three were stranded off the Horseshoe coast, and the latest
reports occurring this past weekend where two boats were reported
overdue. Fortunately all the passengers on the three boats made it
back to shore safely. These incidents remind us how important it
is to be prepared before heading out for a day on the Gulf or one of
our beautiful rivers.
You should take the time to make sure your boat is up to the
trip, according to Maj. Bruce Hamlin, regional commander for the
North Central Region, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
"People enjoy getting on the water to experience the great
outdoors. However, they don't always do what they need to do to
ensure the boating trip is safe.
"If boaters would just do a safety inspection and make sure
they have all the equipment they need before leaving the house, it
could save a great deal of aggravation later. If you run out of gas in
the Gulf, it's too late," Hamlin explained. Hamlin suggests boaters
should:
* Start the motor to make sure it will crank.
* Perform preventative maintenance on the engine to make sure it's in
good working order or take it to a mechanic and let them check it over.
* Ensure spare parts ark available, such as a prop and shear pins.
* Take enough fuel to get where you're going and back again.
* Check the boat's equipment to ensure it's in good working order. For
instance, make sure the rope on the anchor isn't rotten and that the flares
haven't expired. Ensure all running lights are in working order.
* Make sure the required safety equipment is onboard, including U.S.
Coast Guard-approved life jackets, fire extinguishers, sound-producing
devices and visual distress signals. At the FWC website,
http://floridaconservation.org/law/boatsafe/sfty_equip.htm, the minimum
required safety equipment for recreational vessels by class is listed. At
http://floridaconservation.org/law/boatsafe/StateReq.htm, state-specific
boating safety requirements are listed.
"Always have life jackets that fit everyone on board. An adult-
sized life jacket will not protect a child. Florida law requires
children under 6 years old and all people using personal watercraft
or water skis to wear life jackets," Hamlin explained. "If you have
a problem getting your children to wear one, just wear one
yourself. All boaters should wear life jackets. If you think they're
too hot and uncomfortable, consider purchasing the U.S. Coast
Guard-approved inflatable life jackets. See "BOATING" page 5


DCSO Narcotics Unit's



'War On Drugs'



Takes To The Skies

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On June 26th and 27th,
2006, Dixie County Sheriff's
Office Narcotics Unit was
aided by the Counter Drug
Aviation Team, U.S. Army-
National Guard in the
eradication of marijuana plants
growing in wooded areas of
Dixie County.
The National Guard unit
came upon the request of
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher who
has vowed to fight the "War
On Drugs" in Dixie County.
Hatcher noted the "fly-overs"
are a great tool in finding
patches of marijuana plants
that can't easily be seen from
the ground.
Joining the two day search
were officers from the Florida .-,
Drug Enforcement Agency and /M a
Cross City Correctional
Institution. The operation
resulted in the seizure of 63 t
marijuana plants, one arrest
and one case which is pending
further investigation. Pictured above with pilots from Army National Guard are Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, Deputy Jamey King.
Ten of the 63 plants were found in the yard of Thomas McQueen, Jr. of Old Town. McQueen was arrested and charged with
Growing and Cultivating Marijuana.
Sheriff Hatcher expressed his thanks to all the officers involved in the search. He re-emphasized his commitment to the arrest and
prosecution of anyone involved in the illegal use or sale of narcotics. He also urged citizens to become pro-active by passing on
information they may have concerning illegal drug activity in their neighborhood.
While special operatioi.2- prove to bc successful, law enforcement continues to be vigilant during routine patrols in looking for signs
of possible illegal drug use. On June 30, 2006, K-9 Deputy Jamey King noticed a vehicle weaving in and out of its lane and crossing the
center line several times on US 19. King stopped the 1991 Pontiac
and interviewed the driver. While waiting for the driver's
,,, information to be verified by dispatch, King continued his
.,investigation and found the passenger to have a small bag of
"cocaine in his possession.
.,- The passenger, Clarence Lee White of Chiefland, was placed
under arrest and transported to the Dixie County Jail where he was
booked on Possession of Controlled Substance (Cocaine) charges.
SiOn July 7, 2006 DCSO Officer Michael Brannin noticed a
.9 pickup truck driving erratically on CR 317 and made a traffic stop
;" .that ended in the arrest of Ruby Lee Butka of Old Town on
Left to right: Ruby Lee Butka & Clarence Lee l7ite. possession of crack cocaine charges. K-9 Officer John Simmons
was called to the stop and performed a "free air" search. The K-9
Officer alerted the officers of possible drugs in the truck. A search of the vehicle resulted in a bag of crack cocaine being found on Butka
who was a passenger.
Butka was placed under arrest and taken to the Dixie County Jail.
Both of these arrests are examples of how local law enforcement's efforts in keeping drugs off the streets in Dixie County. If you
should have any information about any illegal drug activity, please contact Investigator Michael Brannin of the DCSO Narcotics Unit at
352-498-1230. Together we can all make a difference.

Valentine and Marcus Hays, and Cross City Mayor Tank Lee gather at the memorial that honors veterans
past and present.
By Terri Langford- Staff Writer
The long awaited dedication for the Warren McGill Park was held on July 4th, an appropriate
day as the park honors all of our veterans, past and present. City and county officials, area veterans
.from the American Legion Post 383 and the man whose idea came to life that day, Warren McGill
met at the park located adjacent to the Nature Trail at the corner of CR 351 and US 19 to officially
open the park.
McGill, a veteran himself, lived in Cross City for many years before moving to New Port

Commission Includes

Down Payment Assistant

In SHIP Program
The Dixie County Board of County Commissioners want to
use a portion of the county's annual $350,000 State Housing
Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) Program allocation to make down
payment assistance funds available to eligible first time home
buyers.
At a special workshop held recently at the Dixie County
courthouse between the Dixie County Commissioners, its grants
consultant, Dick Edwards of Community Programs Consulting,
Inc., and the Dixie County Housing Assistance Programs'
Compliance Committee, a decision was reached to add a Down
Payment Assistance strategy to the county's SHIP Program.
"Until recently, all of the county's housing assistance SHIP
and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) -
programs offered repairs and replacement housing to existing
home owners," explained Dixie County Coordinator, Arthur Bellot.
"In 2005 the Florida Legislature provided funds for the Hurricane
Housing Recovery (HHR) Program and our county received nearly
$700,000 to assist applicants whose homes were damaged by the
storms of 2004.
"The HHR program regulations required that a portion of the
funds had to be used to assist people with down payments so they
could purchase a home," said Bellot.
According to Commissioner James Valentine there was a
higher than anticipated interest in the down payment program and
that interest prompted the Dixie County Commission to call the
workshop to explore the possibilities of using SHIP funds to make
Down Payment Assistance a permanent element of the county's
SHIP Program.
"I have felt for a long time that our SHIP program should have
down payment assistance to help young people buy homes in our
county," said Commissioner John Driggers, Chairman of the Dixie
County Board of County Commissioners.
The plan that will be installed into the Dixie County SHIP
Program will be to set aside $70,000 of the county's annual
$350,000 allocation for down payment assistance. Applicants who
have qualified for a mortgage from a local lending institution can
apply for up to $27,000 in down payment assistance from the SHIP
program. See "SHIP"page 5

Was MacArthur right?
Douglas MacArthur was a national hero in World War II. He
commanded Allied ground forces in the Pacific theatre, he accepted
the Japanese surrender, ending the war, and came home amid
much talk about his becoming a candidate for president.
Then came June 25, 1950. The Communist North Korean Army
crossed the 38th parallel in violation of the boundaries established
at the end of World War II, and the UN responded.
No, that's not a misprint. In 1950, the UN was still pretty much
on our side. When the matter was taken up, the Soviet delegation
had recently walked out (a bit of gamesmanship they had used
previously, but which backfired on this occasion) and did not cast a
vote in the Security Council. Mao Tse-Tung's Communist regime
had overthrown Chang Kai-Chek's Nationalist government,
forcing the Nationalists to regroup on Taiwan, but the UN still
recognized Chang's Nationalists as the legal government of China.
And France had not yet started playing footsie with terrorist
regimes, so that left no veto potential for UN action against North
Korea.
MacArthur was put in charge of UN forces, and he came up
with the Inchon landing, ,a brilliant bit of military strategy which
led to a succession of victories, leaving our forces in command of
the situation.
Temporarily. Communist China decided to come to the aid of
their prot6g6, and the Soviets underwrote the effort with helpful
items like MiG jet fighter planes. That amounted to a serious
setback, and the war bogged down.
MacArthur was frustrated by the constraints the Truman
administration put on the war effort and finally violated a Pentagon
policy that forbade our pilots from pursuing Chinese-flown Soviet
MiG's beyond the Yalu River, which is the boundary between
Korea and mainland China.
Truman subsequently fired MacArthur, replacing him with
General Matthew B. Ridgway, an able commander who nonetheless
knew better than to defy the Pentagon. MacArthur's effort to
achieve victory was rebuked, and after three years and the loss of
more than 35,000 troops, a truce restored the original boundary of
the 38th parallel to separate North and South Korea.
A half-century later, MacArthur has perhaps been vindicated.
Kim Jong-il,'the urohymenopteran currently functioning as North
Korea's dictator, has once again opted to exhibit his gluteal
extremity by launching missiles into the Sea of Japan. One of these
was apparently a dud, but had been launched on a trajectory that
would have landed it at or near Hawaii.
We do not know if that missile was armed with a nuclear
warhead. Probably it wasn't; but it could have been, since North
Korea, in violation of an agreement whereby it obtained a nuclear
capability, has developed weapons-grade plutonium.
If General Douglas MacArthur had been allowed to confront
the enemy-and that includes Communist China--we wouldn't be
looking at the problem we have today with North Korea. Red China
was no match for the firepower we could have brought to bear, and
the Soviet Union would probably have backed down rather than get
directly involved, since they never really have liked the Chinese
and they weren't likely interested in putting it all on the line for
North Korea.
Technically, President Truman was right. Even a 5 star general
is required to obey his commander-in-chief. However, the fact
remains that, had the Korean War effort been pursued beyond the
restoration of the status-quo, things would likely be a lot different
in that region today.
But, as they say, hindsight is always 20/20.

Letter To The Editor
The Zion Factor.
Zionist: Someone who will sacrifice any person, anything, or
any nation for the greater good of Israel.
I read with interest the letter from Norman Elliott on The Zion
Factor printed June 22, 2006. Finally, someone had the courage to
speak out on the Zionist control in America and the AIPAC
(American Israel Public Affairs Committee) in our local
newspaper.
Michael C. Piper, author of The New Jerusalem and other
books exposing the Zionist power in America states that in "1993,
ten members of the United States Senate and thirty-two members
of the House of Representatives were Jewish, three to four times
their percentage of the general population."
The American people would do well to remember the book of
Esther. The story goes that a "wicked" government official in
Persia called Haman discovered that the Jews were indeed
foreigners with strange customs and were in fact not working for
the Persians, but working for their own advancement and for
control of the people and government of Persia. (The word "God"
cannot be found in the book of Esther).
Haman hot footed it to King Ahasueros and told him that if the
Jews were allowed to remain in Persia, they would soon control
everything. And they would destroy the religion, government and
culture of Persia and would replace it by anti-God Judaism.
The King gave Haman permission to route the Jews and drive
them from Persia. However, unknown to Haman, a Jewess had
become the wife of the King and as always was working for Jewish
interests, not those of Persia. In fact, the King himself was not
aware that his little Kosher Dumpling Esther was a Jewess. (He
must have had poor eyesight).
At the instigation of her uncle Mordecai, this clever little
Jewess turned the King against Haman; then he and his followers
were ambushed and exterminated by the Jews and the troops of the
King.
The story goes that Haman, his 10 sons and 75,000 non-Jewish
Persians were exterminated by the Jews. And many of the people
of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.
Paul warned Titus not to be giving heed to Jewish fables, and
commandments of men, that turn from the truth. (Titus 1:14). I
believe it is time that we the people challenge the Jewish fables
such as; the "God chosen people" myth and teach our children of
their true heritage.
May God have mercy on America.

Letter To The Editor
The enemy within
Mr. Prater, our own esteemed wordsmith has waxed
melodiously as regards the travails of his Bush Administration. In
the interest of brevity and to keep the hair pullin to a minimum I
am going to skip contention and go straight to the merits of this
Bush Regime.
First is the more than 2500 precious lives lost of our youhg
men and women and the many thousands more maimed for life
and the trillion-dollar price tag of this ill-advised adventure. Does
anybody think that we have gotten our moneys worth? Does
anybody even think that we have accomplished anything
worthwhile?
On the contrary. Terrorism is feeding off our misguided
actions in Iraq. Democrats don't have any good ideas because this
President has so irretrievably muddled American foreign policy
that there simply are no good strategies that can be applied within
the confines of a civilized society.
Before this Presidents ill advised adventure Iraq functioned as
a counterweight to Iran. With Iran and Iraq at each other's throat
neither one of them was a threat to Israel and certainly not to the
United States.
With America now pinned down in Iraq that tin horn dictator
in Korea is thumbing his nose at our President and the United
States. This incompetent President has created a shambles.
The terrorists see Israel, America, Great Britain, and the
industrialized West as an imperialist hegemonic block subverting
and conquering their own governments and taking their natural
resources for their own use. A true statesman would go to the area
and dialogue with the terrorists and address their concerns arid
thereby tamp down violence and the conflict.
A true statesman would go to Korea and eat a bowl of Kimchi
with Kim II Dong, have a glass of wine and crack a few jokes.
Instead of worsening the situation by using the exalted podium of
the United States Presidency to hurl insults, he would show the
man some respect. By doing so he might very well get the country
open to tourism and trade and get the North Koreans busy and
happy making widgets for Americans. We could bring our troops
home after more than fifty years on the North Korean border arid
apply the savings to health care for Americans.
Can't fix the world in three hundred words or less. so I will
rest here.
Kindest Regards, Norman Elliott ElliottN@BellSouth.Net

by Art & Karen Wyckoff



I fully enjoyed the relaxing days of this year's Fourth Of July
celebrations. I found myself reflecting upon the positive things
that are benefits of our FREEDOM and LIBERTY. The pursuit of
happiness came when shade and a cool breeze was found to
escape the hot sun and lack of rain here in Dixie. Several people
have escaped the sun this past week to the shade of our nursery in
search of plants suitable for shady areas. This month's walk in
the garden will address this dilemma and offer a few favorite
suggestions to resolve them.
Shade loving shrubs: anise, azaleas,ligustrum, viburnum,
boxwoods, camelias, some hollies, and split-leaved
philadendrons. Ground
cover: algerian ivy, ground jasmine, wandering jew, ground
junipers (eg. blue rug, blue pacific and Wiltoni)
Flowering perennials and basket foliage: begonias, coleus,
impatiens, spider plants, crotons, peace lillies, many varieties of
ferns (eg. staghorns, elkhorns, asparagus, and rabbit's foot)
Even though July and August are hot muggy months, they aite
actually months suitable for planting due to the rapid growth of
the root structures. Of course this all depends if one provides
proper care as to soil type and moisture levels.
Just for fun, count the number of butterflies that you saw in
your garden today! Was that a true ruby throated hummingbird
flitting around or was it a tiger moth imposter? Now, pull up a
chair, sip on that freshly brewed coffee, smell the country fresh
air and ENJOY your garden and freedoms! Art Wyckoff ;

SFCC Changes Its

Application Deadline
Starting with the Fall 2006 semester, students must apply for
admission or readmission to Santa Fe Community College seven
calendar days prior to the first day of the term.
Why the change? SFCC Registrar Lynn Sullivan said students
who apply on time have greater academic success, stay on track,
and find it easier to register for the courses needed to graduate.
"Moving to an earlier deadline of seven days prior to the first
day of the term promotes student success," she said.
The previous policy, which allowed students to register through
the drop/add period, did not reserve enough time for testing,
receipt of transcripts, campus orientation, on-time attendance and
registration instruction.
The application deadline for Fall 2006 and Fall A Flexterm
is Aug. 16. Students who miss this application deadline can apply
for Fall B Flexterm. That deadline is Oct. 11, and classes begin
Oct. 18.
A completed application and the $30 fee must be received or
postmarked by the application deadline. Santa Fe encourages
everyone to apply online. It's fast and easy. (Readmit students must
apply online.) Contact Lynn Sullivan for more information, (352)
395-5514.

"BOATING"
Continued from page 1
Be weather wise. Know the weather before you begin your outing.
"We have performed quite a few search and rescue operations recently,
looking for folks who didn't check the tide charts for the area where they
will be boating. They get to an area and get stranded during low tide, "
Hamlin explained. "Knowing what's happening in your area is
beneficial."
Carry a cellular phone, and be sure your VHF radio is working
properly.
Don't overload your boat with people or equipment.
Everyone 21 years old or younger is required to complete a
Commission-approved boater education course to operate vessels
powered by JO10 horsepower motors and over. The FWC encourages all
boaters to take a safe-boating course. Information on course availability
is at www.floridaconservation.org; click on "Boating."

The number one cause of boating accidents in 2005 was
carelessness or reckless operation of vessels.
"Another smart thing to do is file a float plan so someone
knows where you are and when you're supposed to return,"
Hamlin said. "This is important," Hamlin explained. "If your
contact knows when you're supposed to return and you don't, they
can contact the FWC and we can begin searching for you sooner."
What about someone operating a boat recklessly? According to
Hamlin, "If we, as concerned boaters, see a careless operator or
someone taking risks while on the water, report the situation to the
FWC. Give us the FL number and a description of the boat and
we'll check it out."
FWC law enforcement is on duty 24 hours a day and can be
contacted at 1-888-404-3922 or # FWC on a cell phone.
Drinking and boating don't mix either.
"Alcohol is a major contributor to boating fatalities. Impaired
boaters come off the water and often become impaired drivers,
further endangering public safety. Don't drink and operate a boat
or vehicle," Hamlin said. "Have a designated driver so you can
enjoy yourself and keep everyone safe."
Fast Facts on Florida's 2005 Boating Accidents
Total fatalities increased by 15 percent over 2004 deaths.
Drowning was the leading cause of death (71 percent) in fatal

The reporting threshold for property damage accidents was
increased from the previous figure of $500 to the current figure of
$ 2,000 to compensate for the rise in the repair costs over the
years. The change has led to a reduction in Florida's boating
accident figures by approximately one-third annually.

"DEDICATION"
Continued from page 1

Richey. He had always thought
it would be nice to have a
small park located near the
trail so that there would be a
place for bikers and hikers to
rest. He also thought it would
be nice to have a memorial for
all veterans located in the park.
McGill called Dixie County's
Veterans Administrator Jerry
Prater and proposed his idea,
which included donating the
land which it sits on.
Prater went right to work
with his first task to get
approval from the County
Commissioners. Prater
received nothing but positive
feedback from all of the
Commissioners, who not only
gave him the "go-ahead", but
backed up whatever costs were
needed in order to make it
happen.
County crews built the
picnic area and several local
businesses donated some of the
supplies. It was truly a
community effort.
The park is quaint and
peaceful; the perfect place to
sit and reflect. The park is
framed with white posts and
the memorial, which represents
all branches of our armed
forces, stands at the far end.
McGill was thrilled with
the outcome and thankful to all
who had a hand in making his
dream come true. The
dedication ceremony was brief
but held a lot of meaning to
those in attendance who
understood the meaning behind
the memorial as they reflected
on their memories of serving
our great country.


"SHIP"
Continued from page 1


"Here's the way this assistance will work. Let's say someone
goes to a local bank and gets loan approval to buy a house, not a
manufactured home that requires a $30,000 down payment. The
Commission feels that the borrower should have a financial interest
in the purchase and in order to receive down payment assistance
from the SHIP program, the applicant would have to pay ten
percent ($3,000) of the lender's required down payment and the
county will provide $27,000 as a second mortgage that does not
require repayment, unless the property is sold within ten years,"
explained Dick Edwards, who is Dixie County's SHIP Program
Administrator. "One more thing, the lender will determine the,
amount of the required down payment, not the Dixie County SHIP
program and sometimes there may not be enough SHIP funds
available to give the applicant 90% of what the bank wants. Funds
will be disbursed on a first come, first to qualify basis."
"The average assistance will probably be in the neighborhood
of $10,000 or less," stated Commissioner Marcus Hays. "Each
applicant that participates in the Dixie County SHIP Down
Payment Program will be required to invest some of their own
money. This is not a give away program. The Board wants to help
as many people as possible and by requiring the applicant to 'buy
into' the mortgage, the county's exposure will be lessened and our
SHIP program will be able to help more home buyers."
Commissioner Hoyt (Buddy) Lamb said that the local banks
have shown an interest in participating in the just completed HHR
down payment program and he believes by extending the program
to the county's SHIP program "a lot of home buyers will be helped
in the years to come."
Edwards said that before SHIP down payment assistance can
become a reality the Dixie County Commission must request
approval from the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC) to
amend the Dixie County SHIP Housing Assistance Plan.
"The amendment process should take about a month. I hope
everything will be ready to go by mid-August," concluded
Commissioner Alton Land.

The Word

Made Flesh

The Mark of the Beast
When Eve gave over to listening
to the lie of the devil (to eat of the tree
of knowing good and evil), she
actually became a type of God in
herself. She left the voice, which had
made her what she was to begin with.
I, the son of man, say grace is
something man and woman has not
recognized spiritually grace through
Jesus Christ. Do you remember the
Writings of the Book of Joshua 24:15?
"Choose you this day whom ye will
serve." ., the son of mail, say after you
know both good and evil, this is the
,.ork of God and the work of the flesh
-good and evil.
When you actually know the
i'ffere'ncec in these two works, then
choose which side you are to serve.
Did .'c us say. you cannot serve God
:'nd Mammon? This outs a discord
between man and God, which actually
mca:. 'in coming into the picture. Sin
!yin : at Ou:' doors the sin itself.
When :he light of the knowledge of
(usobcdience ('which is sin) came into
Ad;mi and Eve. they began to desire
knowle.'e of both good and evil to
in;a them wise and hide from the
prisenc: ,of God and the act of
disobedience. which was breaking
God's lav. I. the son of man, say look
at the ',isobedicnt act of both Adam
anrd Eve,
Ti:. mrinirte the commandment
". at of that" was broken and they
at; of it, God knew their.eyes would
come open and they would desire to
become something of themselves. I,
the soei of man. say listen to the
commandment in this manner. "And
the Lord God took the man, and put
iim into the garden of Eden to dress it
and to keep it." (Gen. 2:15) This was
His w;!l. All the trees, which were
good f6r food, were there in the garden
for him to care for even the tree of
life. Giod said, "while you are taking
care of them, don't eat of the tree in
the midst of the garden" which was
the tree of the knowledge of good and
evil.

Card of Thanks
I want all my friends to know I appreciate everything they have
done for me and my late sister, Betty Lou Ross. I have come to
know I have an abundant amount of friends who love and care for
me. This recent episode of my hospitalization for congestive heart
failure has shown me the love and caring of my family, friends,
and this county I love so much, Dixie.
Thanks again for your support, love, and care you have shown
me these past three weeks. Keep me in your prayers for continued
recovery and healing. God bless you all.

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 27h, 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 of 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. Maxine, 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

Faith Baptist Church News
We want to thank God for a beautiful day today, for the
wonderful rain He sent our way this week and for a Spiritual day in
the Lord at Faith today. Our crowd was large; our special music in
both services was extra good and Bro. Jackie's messages were
good as usual. Bro. Buddy did an excellent job in the Bible Study
class as well.
Our regular business meeting will be Wednesday night at 7:00
p.m. and we look forward to seeing you there. As a member of
Faith it's our duty to be there to take care of God's business.
Bible School starts next Sunday night and goes through Friday
the 21st with Cheryl Lord leading it. A few more workers are still
needed, so if you can help, please contact Cheryl at 498-0460. God
will bless you for it.
Our Senior Social last Friday night was wonderful. There were
lots of finger foods, everyone got a gift and we all enjoyed the
fellowship with God's people. If you missed it, you truly missed a
blessing.
We want our visitors to know they were truly a blessing to us
and we invite them back anytime. We pray that you felt welcome
and loved. If you're looking for a church home, we would be
happy to have you share ours and if you're just passing through,
come back anytime you can.
Remember to pray for someone this week. So many out there
need our prayers. Invite a friend or neighbor to Sunday school and
church with you next week. Wouldn't it be wonderful if your
invitation caused a soul to be saved? Oh how God would bless you
for that. Until next week, we at Faith love you and look forward to
seeing you Wednesday night and again on Sunday.

New Prospect Baptist Church
Our church family was really blessed last week during our
Church Retreat on the River. Although it was a busy week, the
combination of learning more about Jesus and recreation was a
good mix, as members came together and interacted as one family
in Christ. On Saturday evening, we were pleased to attend the
wedding of Miss Brandi O'Neal and Mr. Willard Driggers at
NPBC. Sunday morning we were back in church at NPBC, where
our choir and Bro. Billy did exceptionally good jobs in their
respective parts of the services, capping off a very fruitful week for
our Lord.
We were pleased to learn Sunday morning of the birth of twins
Adrianna and Aden, born Saturday, July 8th to Ron and Shellie Jo
Fowler...congratulations, Shellie and Ron! On Sunday, July 16th,
NPBC will host a banquet in honor of our 2006 DCHS seniors at
7:00 P. M. in our church annex. On Wednesday, July 19th, we will
have our monthly Fellowship Supper at the church annex.
We were blessed to have visitors again Sunday, each of whom
we recognized by presenting them with a visitor's packet. We
encourage you and all others who will to visit us at New Prospect
anytime...you are most welcome! As always, please be in prayer
for those on the church prayer lists, our military, our nation's
leaders, and others of whom you know to be in need. Have a good
week, and may God bless you.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"At (In) The Last Trump"
At (In) the Last Trump.
I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:
Revelation 8:13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of
heaven.
Now church is an earthly name for God's saints, but when the Church is caught
up into heaven, other names are given such as angels, horsemen, living ones, elders,
etc. So, here in Revelation 8:13 we see an angel (saint) flying through heaven.
Isaiah 40:31 They shall mount up with wings as eagles. Revelation 11:15 And
the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The
kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ;
and he shall reign for ever and ever.
The seventh angel is the last messenger and he has the last trumpet. Yes, this
trumpeter will awake many people. Please read the rest of the chapter in Revelation.
The word "seven" is the number of perfection. There are seven days in a week.
The week is completed in the seven and there is a new beginning of a new week.
So, the seventh trumpet is the last and a new beginning starts. You see, the Church
Age is ended on earth and begins again in heaven. The Church is still at work
although it is now in heaven.
In Revelation, chapters two and three we see the Church as it is on earth and as
it has been through the ages, but we are at the end of the church age on earth. The
Church will finish its redemption work from heaven.
Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven;
and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which
said, Come up hither and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.
The things which shall be hereafter are those things which are after the Church
age here on earth.
John sees these things and would have bowed and worshipped at the feet of the
messenger that brought them, but was not allowed to do so.
Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me,
see thou do it not; I am fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony
of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have
entertained angels unawares.

FWC Weekly Law
Enforcement Report
June 30-July 6, 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
ALACHUA COUNTY: July 3, Officer Zack Clark observed a
man having a hard time backing his boat trailer into the water.
After watching him exit the vehicle, Clark observed the man
having a harder time walking to his boat. Clark approached the
subject and could smell a strong odor of alcohol. After the man
was unable to perform any field sobriety tests, Clark transported
him to jail where he refused to take the breathalyzer test resulting
in a DUI charge.
COLUMBIA COUNTY: While on land patrol along the Santa
Fe River, Officer Todd Hoyle came upon a vehicle parked on a
sandbar at the river's edge. As Hoyle took up a position of
advantage, he saw a man wading in the river under 1-75 with a
cocked spear gun, mask and snorkel. The man was looking
intently into the water. On several occasions, as he waded
downstream, he donned his gear, submerged himself, and then
stood up with the spear gun at the ready. After some time, Hoyle
announced himself and made contact with the subject. The subject
was cited for possession of a spear gun in and upon fresh water,
and for taking freshwater fish by underwater diving. He was also
issued written warnings for failure to present a valid fishing license
and failure to display a diver-down flag. The spear gun was
seized.
DIXIE COUNTY: July 2, Officer Justin Allen and Investigator
Larry Ayers observed several subjects working a spotlight on some
clear cuts in a local WMA. The officers followed the suspects for a
while observing them shine their spotlight only in the clear-cut
areas. Upon stopping the suspect vehicle, they observed a subject
holding a loaded rifle in the back of the truck. The subject stated he
was only hunting raccoons. Three subjects were issued citations for
gun and light.
LEVY COUNTY: June 30, Officer Sam Dishman was
patrolling Goethe WMA when he observed a van parked on the
side of the road and a man returning from a palmetto area.
Dishman approached the man who was very nervous. After briefly
looking in the area, he located a safe that had the hinges broken
off. Dishman also saw a moneybox in the front seat and parts of
the safe in the back of the van. After back up arrived, the man
began telling his story of how he broke into his neighbor's house
and stole the safe. He had also stolen other valuables at the house
including jewelry and guns. He returned all the valuables and was
then charged appropriately by Levy County Sheriffs Office
investigators.
Farm Service Agency Announces 2006
County Committee Election Process
Nomination of Candidates continues through August 1, 2006.
Trenton, July 3, 2006 Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns has
announced that agricultural producers throughout the nation can
nominate eligible candidates to serve on USDA Farm Service
Agency (FSA) county committees through August 1, 2006 for the
county committee elections to be held this fall.
"Farmers and ranchers have an important opportunity to ensure
that their FSA county committees represent them by participating
in the county committee election process," said Johanns. "I
encourage agricultural producers across the country to nominate
eligible candidates, especially minorities and women, to serve on
their local committees and to vote this fall."
Farmers and ranchers who serve on county committees help
make decisions necessary to administer federal farm programs
offered in their communities. County committees make decisions
on agricultural issues such as commodity price support loans and
payments, conservation programs, disaster payments and
employing County Executive Directors.
Agricultural producers who participate or cooperate in
programs administered by FSA and live in the local administrative
area conducting an election may be nominated for candidacy for a
committee. Farmers and ranchers can obtain a complete list of
eligibility requirements by visiting a local USDA Service Center or
online at:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/pas/publications/facts/html/cocelig06.
htm.
The two areas up for re-election this year: the area currently
held by Herman Sanchez, Sr. is in Dixie County. He has served 3
consecutive 3-year terms and is restricted from being on the ballot
this year due to term limits. The area held by Kelly Philman is in
Gilchrist County. He is eligible to again be nominated. Individuals
may nominate themselves or others as candidates. Additionally,
community based organizations representing minorities and
women may nominate candidates. To become a nominee, eligible
individuals must sign nomination form FSA-669A. The form
includes a statement that the nominee agrees to serve if elected.
Farmers and ranchers should keep the following important dates in
mind during the 2006 county committee election process:
The nomination period begins June 15th and August 1st is the
deadline to file nomination forms at the local USDA Service
Center.
USDA will mail ballots to eligible voters by November 3rd. The
last day to return voted ballots to the local USDA Service Center is
December 4th
Newly elected county committee members take office January
1,2007.
The Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act established
the county committee system in 1936. Today, there are close to
8,000 FSA county committee members serving three-year terms in
more than 2,300 county offices. "Make A Difference: Nominate
and Vote!" is the theme of the 2006 county committee election
process.
For more information about FSA county committees or to
obtain o nomination form (FSA-669A), visit a local USDA Service
Center or online at:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/pas/publications/elections/default.asp.

Summer
Harvest Farm
Safety
In rural areas it is a well-
known fact that work on the
farm continues all summer
long. The spring planting is
hardly complete when
preparation for the winter
wheat harvest begins. Part of
the readiness ritual includes
getting the combine in good
working order. Repairing
broken equipment or
performing maintenance on
large farm machinery can be
very dangerous. Research from
the University of Illinois has
revealed that agricultural
fatality rates are five times that
of other industries. For this
reason the Farm Service
Agency (FSA) wants to remind
producers to exercise caution
at all times around heavy
equipment.
For many farmers it will
take days or even weeks in the
farm shop to get everything
ready for wheat harvest.
Adjusting the tension on
chains, replacing worn parts,
and applying grease and oil
where needed are just some of
the items that are on a
producer's equipment
checklist. It is also important
to insure that safety shields are
in place and danger zones are
clearly marked. The florescent
orange slow moving vehicle
signs are required by law for
all tractors, wagons, and
combines that travel under 35
mph on the road. Through
advance preparation you will
not only save time but could
save lives and prevent injuries.
FSA would also like to
emphasize caution when
children are near farm
equipment. Recent statistics
reveal that annually over
30,000 farm injuries involve
children under the age of 20. In
agriculture today over 2
million youth are directly
exposed to farm activity in
some manner. As responsible
adults we owe it to our
families to practice safety at all
times on the farm. Minimizing
risk and exercising caution
allows work on the farm to get
done more efficiently and
effectively. A fully successful
summer harvest depends on
getting the crop in, while
insuring everyone remains safe
and accident free.
For further information,
contact the Gilchrist Dixie
FSA Office located at: 4949
SW SR26, Trenton, FL 32693.
The telephone number is (352)
463-2358.

Governor

Signs Bill

Affecting

Hunters

Last week, Governor Jeb
Bush signed into law a bill
affecting would-be, first-time
hunters and those wanting to
hunt during Florida's newly
established crossbow season.
Effective Aug. 1, 2006,
anyone 16 years or older and
born after May 31, 1975 can
hunt under the supervision of a
licensed hunter, 21-years or
older, without having to
complete the state's hunter
safety certification. The newly
established "Hunter Safety
Mentoring Exemption" enables
those persons to purchase a
Florida hunting license and
hunt during a one-year trial
basis.
The new mentoring
exemption was passed by the
Florida Legislature to help
persuade more people to
experience hunting. It is
designed to encourage
experienced hunters to teach
novice hunters about safety,
ethics, wildlife, hunting skills
and respect for Florida's
outdoors.
Until now, everyone 16 or
over, and born after May 31,
1975, needed to complete the
hunter safety requirement
before they were allowed to
buy a hunting license.
"This should be a great
incentive for getting more
people to give hunting a try,
and hopefully, we can hook
some of these folks on the
hunting tradition," said Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission hunter safety
coordinator Bill Cline. "If a
novice hunter enjoys the sport,
we hope they take the hunter
safety course and continue the
experience for years to come."
Individuals taking
advantage of this try-before-
you-buy approach would have
to take and pass a hunter safety
class to be eligible to purchase
a hunting license and hunt the
following year.
Another part of the law
establishes a $5 permit fee for
hunters to participate in the
state's new crossbow season.
The new permit is similar to
the archery and muzzleloading
gun permits that also cost $5
and are required for those
hunting during the archery and
muzzleloading gun seasons.
The crossbow season will
run Oct. 9-13 in the South
Hunting Zone, Oct. 23-27 in
the Central Zone and Nov. 27
Dec. 3 in the Northwest
Zone. Hunters will need to
purchase the $5 crossbow
permit to hunt during these
periods when only crossbows
and bows can be used.
The new crossbow season
is offered on private lands only
and not available on any of the
state's wildlife management
areas.
For more information on
the hunter safety mentoring
exemption or crossbow season,
call Tony Young at (850) 488-
7867.

Hidden Treasures of North Florida Geocache

Giveaway Ends September 1, 2006


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martih
Miami's Coker under fire
At most colleges, they'd be talking about erecting a
stature of a guy with a record like the one
Miami's coach has posted over the past five
seasons. Instead, Larry Coker is on the hot seat,
even after winning 53 of 62 games and
"slipping" to a 9-3 record last season.
It's worth noting that only two schools in
America have won nine games each of the last
six seasons and Miami is one of them. The other
is national champion Texas.
Nobody in Florida had a better season.
Urban Meyer (Florida) was 9-3, Bobby Bowden
(FSU) 8-5, George O'Leary (UCF) 8-5 and Jim Leavitt
(USF) 6-6. Trouble is, it's where the three losses came, how
badly they were and who they were against.
After an opening loss to FSU, 10-7, somehow, the
'Canes went to sleep against Georgia Tech, 14-10. The
worst of all sins, however, was Miami's no-show Peach
Bowl in which LSU spanked Coker's squad, 40-3. And
heads began to roll.
Six assistant coaches were canned and the message
was sent loudly ajd clearly to Coker: Win, or you're out.
Coker's "ggest problem is that he's not Butch
Davis or Jimmy Johnson, whose better hair, more dashing
appearance and flamboyant seem to fit the Coral Gables
lifestyle better.
Having lost nine players to the NFL draft last year,
he has some holes to fill. But with an improved Kyle
Wright at quarterback and Randy Shannon's much
ballyhooed defense, the 'Canes are a good bet to bounce
back.
The good news is that they get FSU in the Orange
Bowl on Labor Day night and will be the beneficiaries of a
lightweight schedule that includes only one Top 25 pre-
season opponent: Virginia Tech.
Fact is, Coker could win nine games for the seventh
straight season and maybe not keep his job.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. If Reggie Jackson was Mr. October, then
David of the Ortiz is Mr. Walkoff Homer
for June, July, August and September.
2. Watch for this trend: As colleges get more
and more money for football and
basketball seats, the students, band and
media will be moved further away from
the action on the field, or court -
guaranteed!
3. I'm feeling a lot better about LeBron,
James' ability to buy some more bling,
now that the Cavs have upped his
contract another $80 million.
4. I'm pulling for France over Italy in the
World Cup in order to stay on good terms
with my French son-in-law, who's still
steaming about his UCLA Bruins getting
clobbered by Florida in the Final Four.
5. Ben Roethlisberger was scheduled to play
in a golf tournament over the
weekend, giving pause to wonder if he
wore a helmet in the golf cart.
Short Stuff
Hard as it may be to believe, betting lines are
already out for some of the college football openers -
Miami is favored by 3.5 over FSU ... Another victim of
PGA Tour affluence and over-abundance: There will be no

Will Tiger, Phil rebound?

Phil Mickelson collapsed at
the end. Tiger Woods disappeared after the
first 36. Given the nature of the two
golfers' U.S. Open meltdowns, which
^ : would be the most likely to rebound for
the British Open at Hoylake? Based on
. : Tiger's 66 Saturday at Cog Hill, you might
choose him. It's just a hunch, but I think
Mickelson is better equipped to overcome
his mental train wreck right now because
his game is sounder. On the other hand, I
could never rule Tiger out of any


tournament because of his fiery competitive nature and
courage to dig down when his "A" game has taken leave.

Wish I'd said, or written, that
When South Carolina's Renaldo Balkman of
Armwood Seffner and Bradenton heard his name called as
the 20th pick in the NBA Draft, Deadspin.com reported "he
cried for like three minutes which is exactly how Knicks
fans reacted to the news."
Wish he hadn't said or written that
"I can't figure out what's wrong with (Joakim)
Noah. The colle; experience? Baloney. What, he couldn't
find women, get drunk and watch NASCAR in the NBA?"
-Sam Smith of the Chicago Tribune on the decision of the
Florida power forward to forgo the NBA draft.
Buddy's Florida Factoids
1. Florida is the home to six underwater
preserves: the Wreck of the Half Moon, Urca de Lima, San
Pedro, The City of Hawkinsville, USS Massachusetts, SS
Copenhagen and SS Tarpon.
2. The coral reef found in Key West is the third
largest in the world, and the largest in North America.
3. Florida has nearly.8,000 lakes of 10 or more
acres in size.

1. I had a nice day and I didn't like it.
2. A living tribute to additives and

3. Extra large is the new large.
Today's Corny Joke
Let me be the first writer on my block to make the
comment about the prep' basketball superstar, O.J. Mayo,
who may or may not commit to play in the NBA out of

More and more, Americans
are turning to alternatives
to expensive gasoline to
power their cars.
Today, automakers offer
more than 40 different mod-
els of alternative-fuel autos,
including some that run on
hybrid technology or fuels such
as clean diesel, biodiesel,
ethanol, hydrogen or com-
pressed natural gas. Eight
million alternative-fuel autos
are on the road today, and
automakers hope to sell more
than 2 million more by 2008.
Alternative-fuel autos and
the alternative-fuel supplies
must be developed in har-
mony. Automakers are work-
ing with the energy indus-
try to develop a range of
alternative fuels capable of
sustaining mobility while
ensuring more secure energy
sources. Much of the alter-
nativel-fuel industry is home-
grown, using American
materials to power cars on
American roads. Many
automakers have launched
joint ventures to develop
fuels such as ethanol, bio-
mass and hydrogen.

and pack (LAP) of energetic materials to both
the US Government and commercial customers.
From 1952 until 2001, Bulova Technologies
was a leader in the defense industry, providing
millions of fuzes in support of large caliber
ammunition deliveries. Bulova's success in this
field led to the acquisition of its fuze capabilities
by L-3, forming the BT Fuze division. This
latest simulator award reestablishes Bulova's
presence in the defense industry.
For this important simulator contract,
program management activities will be
performed within the corporate headquarters and
all Load, Assemble, and Pack operations will be
performed at the Mayo facility. Mr. Bruce
Becker, President of (BTOS) said that this
recent victory could result in as many as 50 new
employees and numerous upgrades to the
facility.
Vice President, Mr. Eddie Viola, a long time
Perry, FL resident feels that this contract award
will greatly assist in the economic growth of all
surrounding areas and will be well received by
the community.

Mr. Angelo Saitta, Vice President of
Business Development feels that this victory is
consistent with Bulova's strategic plan, which
includes providing our soldiers and our allied
forces highly safe and reliable products and
services.

Simulation Lab
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Dixie County Emergency Medical personnel took the Left to right: Mandy Douglas Paramedic and Kris Keen EMT, train
opportunity to receive special advanced training through an Ma who had bee programmed with haing a heart
innovative program, Emergency Medicine Learning & Resource
Center (EMLRC) Mobile Simulation Lab. The training was held in Fanning Springs and open to EMT and Paramedics in Dixie, Levy


and Gilchrist Counties.
"* '/ ,


EMLRC is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting
and advancing emergency medicine, disaster management, pre-
hospital emergency care and public health through the provision of
educational and research programs. The Simulation Lab is made
possible, in part, by a grant from the State of Florida Department
of Health, Bureau of EMS.
The lab is a 45-foot motor coach complete with a full
ambulance bay and emergency department area as well as high-
tech patient simulators, including SimBaby, SimMan, and
AirMan. The simulators are all realistic and are equipped with
realistic airway systems, pulses, cardiac rhythms, and intravenous
arm. SimMan also can produce breathing, heart and lung sounds,
as well as coughing, moaning and various other voice sounds.
The lab Clinical Coordinator, Karen Crowe, REMT-P, RN,
taught the class. Crowe has degrees in both Emergency Medicine
Technology and Nursing. Crowe pointed out that the simulation
lab has proven to be one of the best "hands-on" tools for teaching
the newest techniques in emergency medicine. "I have never
taught a class that didn't have positive results," said Crowe.
The Mobile Simulation Lab is available to EMTs, paramedics,
firefighters, emergency physicians and nurses, emergency
management administrators, and disaster preparedness and
response professionals throughout Florida.
Dixie County crew members who attended were Ryan Fulford
Critical Care Paramedic, Samantha Buchanan EMT, Roy Bass
EMT, Aaron Johns Paramedic, Elizabeth Cranford Paramedic,
Mandy Douglas Paramedic, and Kris Keen EMT; all gave great
reviews on the program. "This is a great learning tool for our
staff," stated Emergency Services Director Chad Reed. "I applaud
each of these men and women for their dedication to their
profession and for their concern and care for their patients," he
added.

you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Perhaps you
prepared tasty food, or maybe furnished a car. Perhaps you
rendered service unseen, right here or from afar. Whatever you did
to console our hearts, we thank you sincerely, whatever the part.
