Early Morning

Traffic Accident

Results In Fatality
By Tern Langford Staff Writer
An early morning traffic accident resulted in the death of an
Old Town man as two pickup trucks, one pulling a boat, collided
as they traveled on US 19, closing the southbound lanes for over
five hours.
According to a preliminary report by the Florida Highway
Patrol, Trooper W.L. McGauley Crash Investigator and Corporal
J.L. Gourley Homicide Investigator, the crash occurred
approximately 3.5 miles north of Cross City at around 3:00am.
Jeremiah Mitchell Branch, 25 of Old Town was driving a 1989
Ford pickup and pulling a boat, while John M. McKinney, 45, of
Cross City was driving a 1995 Chevy pickup. Both vehicles were
traveling in the southbound lane.
The report stated that McKinney failed to either see the Branch
vehicle or take evasive action when he came up on the Branch
vehicle and collided with the boat. At the point of impact Ray
Mitchell Branch, 53 of Old Town and another passenger, Jay D.
Floyd, 33 of Perry, who had been riding in the truck bed, were
ejected onto the road.
Floyd, and two other passengers James Colson, 36 of
Suwannee and Tash Branch, 23 of Cross City, along with the
driver were not injured; Ray Branch sustained fatal injuries.
It was noted seatbelts were not being used by any of the
passengers or drivers. The FHP report indicated that alcohol may
have been a factor in the accident. No charges have been filed as
the investigation continues and results from the blood alcohol test
are finalized.

Property Appraiser Hal Chewning, Jr., those high property values
will cost you about 21% more than your 2005 taxes.

To School August 7th

Open House To Be Held This Thursday August 3rd For All Schools
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
While summer is just
cranking up, Summer School
is coming to an end and next
Monday, August 7"' students
will return to the classroom. th
Over the past two months the c l .
District Administrative Staff f, /
has been busy preparing for L
the 2006-2007 school year.f
Teachers returned to work this r gPt he a e
past Tuesday and the buses.
have been tuned up and are
ready to roll.OS
Kicking off the school
year, each school will hold an .
Open House this week, August
3 Anderson Elementary and
Old Town Elementary will
hold theirs from 4:30-6:30Au7SR
PM, with Ruth Rain's open
house beginning at 5:30 pm.
and Dixie County High School H A LD
starting at 6:30 pm. This is an
opportunity for parents to meet ,.___ ___--_- _-.-___-__
teachers and have questions
answered. It is also a time for
students to become familiar
with the campus prior to the
first day of school.
The Transportation
Department would like to
remind motorists to be aware
of school bus stops and
children crossing roadways.
Drivers also need to adhere to
school zone speed limits, as
law enforcement will be out
maing sure students are safe.
It you need to know what bus
your child will be taking you
can contact the Transportation
Office at 498-6152.
While each school operates
a little differently than the
others, they all encourage
parents to help with their
child's' education by making
sure that he/she have enough
rest and a good breakfast
before coming to school. It
has been proven time and time
again, that proper rest and
good nutrition play an
important role. in learning.,.
They also ask that your child This young man is more than ready for the opening day of schooL With backpack loaded with all his
be prepared for class, making supplies and lunch box in hand, he asks as he looks at the sign, "Is it time yet?"
sure they have the supplies required by their teachers. See page 10 for the list for AES and OTES. Last but not least, make sure that
your child gets to school! They can't learn if they aren't there.
Last year, 2005-2006, Dixie made a district grade of "B" for its achievement on the Sunshine State Standards. This year, 2006-2007,
school staff will continue to focus on academic excellence, making sure that every student "makes the grade". For those low performing
students, help will be provided to ensure their growth. For those students already making the grade, programs will be in place to make
sure they continue to perform at the same level or higher. It is important that students not become complacent. This year will prove to
be a challenge as the state standards have increased. Science will be added into the FCAT test and Math scores from the lower
percentile will be added to the overall school grade. However, with the support of parents, administrative and instructional staff, each
student should be able to meet the challenge. See "STUDENTS REPORT BACK"page 5

where he served in an administrative
capacity.
He and wife, Patricia Mills Schofield,...
live in the Fanning Springs area. Schofield .
was born and raised in Gilchrist County and '
comes from a long line of educators. His
father, Harrison Schofield, was a teacher at
Trenton High School, principal at Trenton .

his career. Schofield's mother, Jessica, .
started her 48th year as a teacher at Trenton -.

Just what are Schofield's plans for DCHS? "My first area of focus will be academics," Schofield

added. "I believe that it is the instruction, not the structure that makes a school."

Should Saddam be shot?
Saddam Hussein, the erstwhile dictator of Iraq, is now being
tried for war crimes and a litany of other capital offenses in a
proceeding somewhat reminiscent of the O.J. Simpson fiasco. The
lte Johnny Cochran obviously being unavailable, the task of
d afense attorney has been assumed by former U.S. Attorney
General Ramsey Clark. Other than that, things seem pretty much
the same.
With one exception: At this writing, the death penalty appears
still to be a viable option in the event of a guilty verdict. At least
Saddam seems to think so, and I never noticed O.J. getting nervous
about any such eventuality. In fact, the possibility of O.J. having
entertained such concerns would appear to be enigmatic.
Saddam, on the other hand, indicates that he has at least
considered the possibility that he might be convicted and, in that
eventuality, the possibility that he could be sentenced to death,
rather than community service.
Two things point to this. First, his hunger strike. Unlike the
"hunger strikes" undertaken by celebrity anti-war protesters that
consist of missing 'perhaps one meal or a bedtime snack before
passing the mantle, on to the next volunteer, Saddam was serious
enough that prison officials found it necessary to force-feed him.
Doggone, I sure wish I could have had that assignment, or at least
gotten to select the menu and the method.
;* The question, of course, is would he have starved himself to
death if the warden hadn't agreed to give him back his pinup of
Cindy Sheehan in a thong bikini? Unfortunately, we may never
know.
; The other indication that Saddam has entertained the notion
that the court might elect to introduce him to his 72 virgins lies in
his request that, if sentenced to the eternal, celestial dirt nap, he be
shot, rather than hanged. He brought this up at least a year ago,
atd again quite recently.
His philosophy no doubt lies in the tradition that worthless
criminals are hanged, while soldiers who happen to wind up on the
losing side are sometimes shot at sunrise. (Does Saddam Hussein
actually get up that early?) Obviously, Saddam feels that he fits into
the latter category, making it more appropriate that he be
terminated by a rifle bullet, rather than a rope.
; Well, now, if we're talking about appropriate punishments, how
about that industrial grade plastic shredder Saddam's goons used as
a:means of executing people he didn't like? After all, those who are
categorically opposed to the death penalty are going to squawk any-
way, so why not?
In the event the decision is made to execute Saddam by firing
squad, I have a suggestion. Instead of the customary lineup of
military riflemen, why not round up a few relatives of Iraqi
citizens who met their demise at Abu Ghraib while Saddam's crew
Were still in charge there, and let them be the firing squad. Let
eOch take a turn firing a round into Saddam, selecting any body
prt they choose as a target.
That way, Saddam would be granted his request that he be
e ecuted by firing squad, and he still wouldn't be getting off quite
sp easy as he had hoped.
That should make everybody happy, shouldn't it?

Letter To The Editor
$9,000 per parking spot?
I'm just picking myself up from off the floor where I fell
unconscious after reading the story about the boat ramp parking at
Jena. (Advocate July 27).
I just checked it again and even tested the numbers against my
trusty ole adding machine. Dixie County is buying three acres of
land for $645,000. It will be cleared and limerocked and by then
the cost will probably well exceed $700,0000...with financing and
other costs we're looking at least three quarters of a million
dollars.
The article says there should be room for 70 to 80 vehicles and
trailers on this lot just a third mile from the ramp. Let's say 80. At
80 the cost per parking spot is over $9,000 and could approach
$10,000 when all expenses are totaled.
As an avid angler in both salt and fresh water and author of
articles and books on the subject, I do feel qualified to comment on
facilities provided for us who enjoy wetting a line. But I must
confess that I do not believe this purchase is a good deal for
anyone and surely not for Dixie Countians who will not even be
the primary users of this parking lot, particularly on weekends.
In my opinion, the County should look at other options.
George 'Grif" Griffin

THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : My husband and I have
mutually agreed on a divorce.

marriage for eligible couples.
To be eligible:
*Both must agree that the
marriage cannot be saved.
*Both must agree on how to
divide property and debts.
*There must be no minor
children of the marriage, and
the wife cannot be pregnant.
*At least on e of you must have
been a resident of Florida for
the past six months.

Clerk of Court's office with
picture ID's, and fill out a
Petition for Simplified
Dissolution of Marriage.
Forms are available in the
clerk's office. An attorney is


I A~


Ellen Sands
not required, but if either of
you has any legal questions,
consulting an attorney prior to
filing is advised. A hearing to
finalize the divorce will be
scheduled as soon as possible
after a 20 day waiting period.
Both parties must appear at the
hearing. The final judgment is
then taken by both parties to
the Circuit Civil Division of
the Clerk's office.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006


"PROPERTY TAX"
Continued from page 1

Chewning stated the real estate market in Dixie County has all
but stopped, with sales down an estimated 70%; however, property
values have remained the same as last year (2005). Today an
average 1-acre residential bare land home site will cost you an
estimated $20,000.00. In Horseshoe Beach a 100 foot lot will cost
you $200,000.00 while property on the Steinhatchee River will
cost you $5,000.00 a foot. Suwannee prices remained about the
same as last year with canal frontage costing an average of $1,700
to $2,100 a foot. Jena and Horseshoe Beach condos are
advertising costs in the range of $170,000.00 to $449,000.00 per
unit!
Chewning noted that the only thing saving locals from higher
property taxes has been the cap put on their homestead
exemptions. "The most a homestead piece of property can be
raised is 3%," Chewning noted.
Chewning explained that property values are set with the rise
: and fall of the stock market and interest rates. When the market is
-high and interest rates high, real estate prices drop. When the
market is down, interest rates tend to drop and prices increase as
well as sales. Chewning predicts that next years' taxes, which will
be based on the values of 2006 will remain about the same as this
year (2005 values).
The total taxable value overall in Dixie County for the 2006 tax
year will bring in a whopping $591,757,000, over V2 billion total
taxable value and an increase of over 104 million from last year.
Dixie's Tax Collector, Joyce Davis noted that her office had
record sales this past May with $499,940.28 in individual tax
certificate sales and $10,594.27 in county held certificates sold.
Davis stated that their total tax roll of $12,503,630.22 was a
million more than last year. "Our work load here in the Tax
Collectors' Office has really increased over the past year," Davis
stated. Next year should prove to be another challenge.
On August 18th the Property Appraiser's Office will be sending
out Truth In Millage (TRIM) notices which will show last year's
* tax and this year's tax amount. The TRIM notice is a projected tax
amount and anyone disputing that projected tax needs to contact
the Property Appraiser's Office by September 12, 2006. If you do
not contact them prior to that date, any possible changes will not
Sbe made. Look for the Red URGENT message on your TRIM
'notice.
With the County Budget still being fine tuned, the millage rates
are not yet available. The Commissioners will meet this coming
Thursday, August 3rd after the regular Board Meeting for a Budget
' Workshop. A final budget hearing should take place on September
19th.
Final property tax bills will be sent out in November.

"DCHS PRINCIPAL"
Continued from page 1


"It is our job as educators to make sure that we graduate students that are prepared for the world."
Schofield stated that he will spend 80% of his time in the classroom helping with instruction.
The second area of focus for Schofield is building a strong relationship between the
administration, faculty, staff, parents and students. He stated that students will be treated with
dignity and respect, and in return he expects students to give the staff the same respect. Schofield
also is a big believer in students coming to school and being punctual everyday. "With classes only
50 minutes long, it is important that students be on time," he added.
"With all of us working together, I know that we will be able to increase student performance."
There are a few other changes at the DCHS campus. Several fences have been erected and will
be locked during school hours. "It is not our intention to make the campus a prison, but to make sure
that students are safe," stated Schofield. It was noted that there have been several occasions where
unauthorized persons were on campus during school hours. Visitors will be asked to park in front of
the main campus and must check in with the front office. Student parking has been expanded to help
accommodate the loss of parking space in front.
At the Open House this Thursday, August 3rd, the issues regarding drink machines, and cell
phones will be addressed, along with the school dress code and suspensions.
"As the new principal I look forward to working not only with the staff and students, but the
community as well," Schofield stated. "Together, we can help DCHS reach its full potential."

George Bernard Shaw once said, "What we want is to see the
child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the
child." This is the goal of the Dixie District School Staff, to give
students the tools in which to learn and to foster a thirst for
knowledge so they can strive to be the best they can be. Here's to
a great school year!

Faith Baptist Church News
It was good to be in the house of the Lord today. Brother Jackie
did his usual good job in the pulpit, the special music was
outstanding, and the rain was cool and refreshing. We had a
wonderful crowd for church and the 5"' Sunday dinner after the
morning service. All had a great time and the Spirit was strong and
moving among us.
It was great to have some of our folk's back who had been
away for a while and we had several visitors. We want our own
folks to know how good it was to have them back in our midst and
we pray that they will be back next week. As for the visitors, we
want them to know how special they are to us and what a blessing.
We pray that you were made to feel welcome and loved and that
you will visit us again real soon. If you're looking for a church
home, you won't find a better one than Faith and we invite you to
share it with us.
Our 5"t Sunday night sing was especially good. We have so
much talent in our midst that it's hard to get everyone on the
schedule, but God gave us plenty of time and we enjoyed each and
every one of the specials rendered. If you missed this service, you
truly missed a blessing.
Ms. Elvira Westbury asked us to announce that the Canaan
Land Boys and Gold City Quartets will be in concert next Saturday
night at the Chiefland High School Auditorium beginning at 7:00
pm. There will be a $7.00 donation to enter. Mark your calendars.
We pray that you have a wonderful week and that God keeps
you safe, happy and healthy. Remember to pray for someone this
week, show them love and understanding and invite them to
church with you. We'll be looking for you Wednesday night and
again next Sunday. God bless you!

Central Baptist Church
John Orlando returned from a 12 day mission trip to Romania
this past Wednesday. This trip was a discipline trip ministering in
two key villages, Villi Techii and Tonchu. Hearts of Faith
Ministries and founder John Fracker was here in Cross City a few
months ago with two Gypsy home missionaries, Abbi and Sondu
from the village of Villa Techi. Since that time John Fracker and
his Ministry has been under severe attack by the enemy.
John sends his greetings and heart felt appreciation for all the
prayers that Cross City has directed his way. He asks that all the
churches in our Association continue to pray that Hearts of Faith
will continue to be the lighthouse of central northern Romania, and
that God will continue to use them to lead many to the saving
Grace of Jesus Christ. Pray especially for Sondu as his health is
under attack. Medical care in Romania is poor by our standards.
Sondu has had pain down the left arm & chest pain. He has been
taken to three different hospitals so far to find the problem. Yet he
forces himself to at least get to service on Sunday mornings to
minister to the saints. John Fracker is going crazy trying to hold
this man down to rest.
Satan has lost many souls because of the work of Hearts of
Faith Ministries. The loss of Sondu could really devastate the
churches in Tonchu and Villi Techi. While there this week a young
16 year old teen drowned in a lake while trying to get cool during
her lunch break while working in the fields. It took John Fracker
and those who could swim 3 hours to find her body. The village
was devastated. This family was not members of the Baptist
church there in Villi Techii. They were Greek Orthodox. I attended
the funeral and it was all religious and quite different than ours.
Her body lay in a coffin outside while the priests did their ritual
then they put the lid on the coffin and the relatives of the girl
nailed it shut. Then it was marched to the burial place. We have no
assurance where this young girl will spend eternity. She was buried
in her wedding dress as she was to be married in two weeks.
If you are looking for a place to invest in the kingdom of God
over and above Tithes, I would strongly recommend Hearts of
Faith now under the umbrella of Central Baptist Church,
Pastor David Downing. John Fracker needs more help to
accomplish where the Lord is leading him and it is up to us to
supply that help.
Anyone wanting to go on a mission trip to Romania is invited
to contact us here at Central Baptist and we will schedule a time
where you can come and see what the Lord is doing first hand.
Thank you Cross City for your support, prayers and dedication to
fulfilling Jesus' last command, Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV)
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20]
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded
you: and, lo, I am with ybu always, even unto the end of the world.
Amen.
God Bless you.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"God"
I, the Day of the Lord, say before we get into this message we
would like to give a few scriptures that will help serve as a setting,
placing this line of thought in as clear a channel as possible. We
are including the following next few versus and the fuller Greek
meaning of words to help give a clearer picture of their meanings,
all such being in parenthesis.
Romans 11:36 "For of (out of) Him and through (by means of)
Him and to (into) Him, are All Things to whom be glory forever
(for the ages), amen. "Corinthians 8:6-7" "But though there is'but
one God, the Father, of (out of) whom are All Things, and we in
Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we.by
Him. How be it there is not in every man that knowledge.
Corinthians 5:18 "And all things are of (out Of) God. "I, the Day of
the Lord, say no doubt all the universe was created out of the very
glory that streamed out of Him. And therefore it must have been
spiritual in nature in its beginning for God is esse itself, essence
itself, substance itself, and form itself.
Everything that comes from the hand of God is pure and
spiritual in nature. I, the Day of the Lord, say but sin and self-hood
have caused it to be degenerated into a gross materialism. Yet
originally all things came out of God; they are now going through
Christ, who is our redeemer for "God was in Christ, reconciling the
world unto Him, not imputing their trespasses unto them".
Corinthians 5:19 And eventually all will be brought back into
God again, that the Godhead might be all in all. I, the Day of-the
Lord, say it is through Christ that the whole creation will be lifted
up again into the highest favor of God where all shall be restored
to its spiritual state.
Christian Dom holds a beautiful little motto, hung upon the
wall of many homes that say "Jesus Never Fails!" We have heard
this statement all our lives, but it has only been these past few
years that we have begun to believe in the relation to the
completeness of Christ's redeeming work, as the Spirit is
quickening the truth that indeed, Jesus Never Fails, and He shall
reconcile all things unto Himself. Hallelujah; continued next week.

Two Special Ladies
There are many people who come and go in our lives. Few
leave their smiles in your heart forever. Two special ladies will
without end be cherished for the love and care that they gave to my
mother, Rita Land Arnold. Kim Smith and Carol Driggers, my
mother loved you both as daughters.
There are not enough words or enough appropriate words to
accurately express how blessed we have all been to have had you
in olur lives. You are loved and appreciated for the many sacrifices
you made to make my mother's illness tolerable and her time filled
with smiles. You treated her like a princess, a china doll, and a
lady tenderly giving her dignity as she slowly gave in to her
sickness. I am eternally thankful to the both of you and to God for
bringing you into our family.
Love always,
Rita Harris & Family

another blessing in a long line of blessings from our Heavenly
Father, who loves us beyond our understanding. Sunday was no
exception, as we came together in His name to sing praises and

which Bro. Billy brought God's message in a very earnest and
Forthright manner, choosing his text from Numbers 11:4-6.
*' Sunday evening, we were blessed with a special song by Danny
Riels immediately prior to the sermon, who also did a fine job
while accompanying himself on the piano.

Made Flesh
The Mark of the Beast
Continued from last week. I, the
son of man, say we are taught in our
Bible that the Serpent is subtler than
any beast of the field. (Genesis 3:1) Up
until this time this serpent wasn't a
serpent, he was a beast. The word
beast was taken away and the word
j. serpent was added. This serpent word,
:: subtle, means clever, crafty, artful, and
mysterious. Webster says it means
strange and suggestive. "And he said
unto the woman, Yea, hath God said,
Ye shall not eat of every tree of the
.garden?"
Genesis 3:1 "And the woman said
unto the serpent, we may ea of the fruit
,of the trees which is in the midst of the
., trees of the garden:' of the fruit of the
'tree ahich is in the midst of the
Sgrden. God hath said ye, shall not eat
of it. neither shall ya touch it, lest ye
die And the serpent said unto the
aoman, ye shall not surely die; for
God doth know that in the day ye eat
thereof. then your eyes shall be
opened, and ye be as Gods, knowing
good and evil. And when the woman
', sa% that the tree was good for food,
and that it was pleasant to the eyes,
Sand a iree to be desired to make one
ise. she took of the fruit thereof, and
-did eat, and gave also unto her
husband % ith her; and he did eat."
Genesis 3:2-6 I, the son of man,
..' sa5 man really thinks he knows
something when he knows good from
e'il This knowledge (food of
kno, ledge coining from this tree),
made this tree desirable to make one
wise. It %as pleasant to the eyes. It is
strange how God's creature would
rather hae this blessing of knowing he
f is wise and to know both good and
I evil., %hen he could have eaten of the
: tree of life which was also in the
.J garden
S I. the son of man, say man has had
. the desire to be smart, wise, cunning,
and craftN ever since the eating of the
tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
"And the eyes of them both were
opened, and they knew that they were
naked and they sewed fig leaves
together and made themselves aprons."
Continued next week.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006


Camp Blanding Lakes Open
Magnolia and Lowry lakes on Camp
Blanding open for public fishing access
beginning July 28.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, lake access has been
closed because of security reasons.

The public may access the lakes from 7 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m. Friday and Saturdays, and any day
hunting is allowed and a check station operated.

"Anglers must check in and out at the Treat
Road gate check station off State Road 21 near
Keystone Heights," said Jerry Krummrich,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) regional freshwater fish
biologist. "Because of military security, we
must monitor access to the post."
Military training days occur, at times, on
weekends, closing the area to anglers. Anglers
should call the Camp Blanding Lake
information line at (904) 682-3318 for a
recorded message about possible closures, or
the Lake City Regional Fish and Wildlife
Commission office at (386) 758-0525.


To Public Access
"Camp Blanding military staff and FWC
personnel have worked together to get the
access to the lakes reopened to the public.
Anglers need to be aware of some additional
restrictions when using Magnolia and Lowry
lakes," Krummrich said.
"Anglers need to abide by the 1:30 p.m.
closure of the lakes," Krummrich said. "Access
to these lakes should be considered a privilege.
Responsible use will hopefully result in long-
term availability of these lakes."
Use of the lakes is restricted to fishing,
according to Department of Military Affairs and
FWC officials. Anglers must carry out trash
from the lake area because garbage cans are not
available.
"The Florida National Guard and Florida
Department of Military Affairs are pleased to
reopen the lakes as an added service to our
responsible Florida citizens," said Maj. Gen.
Douglas Burnett, Adjutant General of Florida.
"Many of them have fished these lakes for years
and we disliked not being able to provide this
privilege after Sept. 11. Now, we can restore
some of these opportunities."

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin;
Let Bobby decide when it's time
Okay, enough of the age jokes about Bobby
Bowden. You've heard them all lately:
Q. What's older than the dirt underneath
the grass at Bobby Bowen Field?
A. The coach it's name after.
Even his own son, Tommy, is taking '
potshots at Florida State's 76-year-old coach.
When asked in Ponte Vedra at the ACC Football
Kickoff if coaching all this time
has taken a toll on his dad, the Clemson coach
replied: "He plays (golf) from the women's
-tees."
Papa Bowden is not without detractors.
His severest critics say he has lost control of the team,
doesn't really coach anymore not even on the sidelines
during games -and that he has refused to exercise
discipline in punishing the rules breakers on his team. They
also rip him for allowing his son to remain as offensive
coordinator.
Well, get used to it, all you Bowden bashers,
because the old man says he's not ready to go anywhere
anytime soon.
While Tommy is making noises like a man who
wants out in another decade or so, Papa Bowden is thinking
of himself as another Pop Warner or George Halas.
"Tommy ain't interested in coaching 10 more years,"
Bowden The Senior told the media. "Here I am at 76,
hoping to get in 10."
The last time I checked, in America the only
people who can decide when it's time to retire are the
employee and his or her bosses. I hope the stays the course
another 10 years just so he can outlast his son Tommy ..
Quick Jump Starts
1. Here we go again the French accusing Tour de France
winner Floyd Landis of doping (it must be something in
America's water).
2. If Corey Pavin can shoot at 26 on nine holes, can it be
long before Tiger Woods shoots an 18?
3. Sometimes I can't decide whether bad boy Tony
Stewart is bad or good for NASCAR, but he certainly keeps
auto racing fans abuzz.
4. College Football Sneak Preview Headline: Michigan
and Lloyd Carr bounce back in 2006.
5. I love it when a guy writes me an e-mail accusing me of
being dishonest in my column saying he works with me -
but signs a phony name that's not even in our personnel
files.
Short Stuff
With Miami and FSU being picked to win their
divisions in the ACC and Florida one of the choices in the
SEC East, the Sunshine State may be shining brightly again
in college football ... Falcons quarterback Mike Vick says
all that bad stuff about him on the Internet is untrue and
that's he starting over with a brand new attitude again!

one we used in the U.S. Coast Guard years ago.
"Never in the history of mankind have so few
done so much for so many for so long with so little that it
seems we can do everything with nothing, forever!"
I believe the original of the proverb came from
Winston Churchill during the Battle of
Britain.

Buddy:
I, too, loved the coverage of
the World Cup. I was never...ever...a fan
of soccer until this year. Now, I am
hooked. The great thing about soccer is
the fact it doesn't matter WHO wins ...


you're just so grateful that someone WINS.

Today's Retirement Choice
You can Live in New York City where ..._.
You say "The City" and expect everyone to
know you mean Manhattan. _2. You think
Central Park is "nature."_3. You believe that
being able to swear at people in their own
language makes you multi-lingual.
4. You've worn out a car hornm._5. You think
eye contact is an act of aggression.
Buddy's Believe It or Not
(But don't ask him to prove it)
1. Chocolate affects a dog's heart and nervous
system; a few ounces will kill a small one.
2. Leonardo Da Vinci could write with one
hand and draw with the other at the same time.
3. Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given
out during World War II were made of wood.
This Just In
Former Memphis State running back DeAngelo
Hall says in mini-camp with Carolina Panthers that his
mission was to earn his name back: "They don't call me by
my name. They call me 'rook.' They don't even give me
the 'ie.' I don't have a name yet. I haven't earned it."
Bumper Sticker, Sign or T-shirt
1. CAUTION: You are in the "Whatever Zone."
2. As a pathological liar, I deeply resent that.
3. Real American Idle.
Today's Corny Joke
The neighbors had been teaching their 3-year
old daughter the Lord's Prayerjfor several evenings at
bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the
prayer._Finally, she decided to go solo. They listened with
pride as she carefully enunciated_each word right up to the
end of the prayer: "Lead us not into temptation," she
prayed,_"but deliver us some E-mail."
Today's Proverb
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to
be continually fearing you will make one.
And Good Morning...
... Larry Coker. I wouldn't be planning any
additions on my house if I were you until the Miami
Hurricanes' football season is over.

How Can The Social Secunrty Disabilty Speciaast At Integrated Family Services Help You?

If you are denied a Social Security Disability or a SSI Claim, it is often because there was. a lack of medical evidence
in support of your claim or the Administration did not consider all your impairments or the Social Security Administration
failed to apply the correct legal rules. A Social Security Disability professional can give you advice about what you need
to do to prove your disability and help you gather medical evidence. A Social Security Disability professional can request
copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final disability claim. Professionals
specializing in Disability claims can request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and
cannot do because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.
Every day you wait to file is one more day until you begin receiving your money.
There is NO RISK to you. If we do not win you do not pay!

what it takes to be a Super
Star in life, and in the
Kingdom of God. NickPA

new playing field with
"Christ as the Goal."
Pastor Tony Harris, a

of their destiny in Christ.
Nick Collins, born and raised in Cross City, FL is a success story, worthy of note. These "2" men
together are awakening a next generation to their call for a higher purposed life.

$1,500.00 was raised which will be used for a senior scholarship.

Levy County
Quilt Museum
Log Cain Quilters met
Thursday, July 27t at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was
show and tell day. Ann Hardee
has quilted a beautiful Blue
and White Chicken Scratch,
this was done by many several
years ago, but today we don't
see it very much. She and
Christine and Ashley put in
two more quilts to be done at
home. Betty Dillon has
finished a Charm Wash and
our visitor from Dunnellon
brought in a blue and white?
We will find the name as soon
as we can. Pat has finished the
Autograph quilt that will be
taken to Camp Curuth next
Thursday. It is to be signed by
the Sheriffs of Florida as well
as anyone who is connected to
the camps.
Our Gazebo is going to be
dedicated Saturday, August 5th
at 3:00 pm. This is done so the
angels can watch over it. Todd
Troyer will come and do the
honors. We invite anyone to
come out and enjoy.
Greg and six boys were out
Tuesday. It seems there are
always things to be done and
next week we will start
cleaning all the tables and

By Elaine Howell....
The Old Town Chicks
Red Hatters had their annual
Christmas in July meeting on
July 25th, 2006 at the
Lighthouse Restaurant in
Fanning Springs. Dorine
Walker was our hostess and
supplied us with a beautiful
,purple and red Christmas tree
all decorated with all of our
pictures on it. Also she had the
tables decorated so nice, as she
always does when it is her
turn, she is so talented. Also
'we had an auction, everyone
brought something to auction
off to raise money for food
boxes for the needy for
Thanksgiving. We really did
well on the auction.
The birthday Princess for
July -was Gerri Fonda with her
purple hat to indicate her


birthday. The only month of
the year you can wear purple
hats is on your birthday month.
Everyone was met with a
Merry Christmas and Happy
New Year at the end of the
day. Everyone enjoyed the
meeting.


It was then off to
shopping in our red and purple
outfits. Look to see what we
get into next month.
Till then this is Point and
Shooter bidding goodbye for
July.

American Legion
and Department
of Defense
Launch "Heroes
to Hometowns"
The tradition of veterans
helping veterans was extended
to a whole new generation of
American warriors and their
families Wednesday with the
signing of a Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU)
between The American Legion
and the Department of Defense
formalizing the "Heroes to
Hometowns" program.
"The American Legion had
its origin in 1919. At the end
of WWI, a bunch of
Doughboys got together to
make sure returning vets were
taken care of," said National
Commander, Thomas L.
Bock. "Our involvement in
this program is what The
American Legion has always
been about -- veterans helping
veterans."
The MOU establishes a
partnership between the
American Legion National
Headquarters and the Office of
the Deputy Under Secretary of
Defense (Military Community
and Family Policy).
The "Heroes to
Hometowns" transition
program will start setting up a
support network and
coordinating resources before a
severely injured service
member returns home. Child
care, temporary housing,
errand-running, adapting
homes or vehicles, spiritual
support, government claims
assistance and financial aid are
just some of what Legion posts


teachers returned Tuesday, August 1st and our students will return
Monday, August 7th.
The 2005-2006 School Year was a great year for our district in
which we saw learning gains increase across our district. Our
district has moved to the status of being classified a "B" district.
Our goal this year is to become an "A" district.
We hope that you will pick up a copy of our "Back to School
Guide." We have integrated in this guide important school
information that you will need throughout the year. Examples in
the school guide are the school calendar for 2006-2007, dress code
for the schools, school supply lists, vocational career education
opportunities, health and nutrition services, sports schedules and
many other valuable items.
Please remember as school starts to watch out for our school
busses. They make frequent stops, which will be a change from
your summer driving routine. We are asking that the public be
patient with our transportation system because it takes about two
weeks to get through the confusion of establishing bus routes. At
this point we don't know how many students will be riding our
busses or where the concentration of students will be.
Parents, please read our dress code requirements so that students
will come to school ready to learn without any disruptions. Many
dress fads that clothing manufactures push are not acceptable in
school.
We encourage you to meet with your child's teachers, take part
in school activities and become involved in your school's
improvement process. Working together we can elevate our


students to greater levels of
opportunity.


will provide. "The American
Legion has nearly 15,000 posts
around the world to help our
returning Heroes," Bock said.

National Headquarters now has a

There are only three trailers at the
present time that can be used.
Joe introduced Mike DePew from
CMD Trailer Sales and Leasing, Inc.
out of Lamont, Florida.
Mr. DePew stated that the trailers
are unsalvageable and proposed that
the Board consider purchasing
aluminum trailers. He presented
photos of two types of trailers that
Levy County has purchased. They are
5,000 lbs lighter which in turn allows
20% more volume. He discussed a 7
year lease at $800 per month and at
the end of the lease the title would
belong to the County. We could
possibly work up a trade-in for your
trailers.
The Board discussed and turned the

quoted is not the same exact bid as

for bids.

DICK EDWARDS, COMMUNITY
PROGRAMS CONSULTING
Mr. Edwards presented the Dixie
County Grants Status Report dated
May 4th, 2006 as follows:
CDBG
A. The Florida Department of
Community Affairs has announced
that the 2006-2007 Community
Development Block Grant Funding
Cycle will open on June 1 and
applications will be due no later than
July 21 at 5p.m.
B.DCA is conducting its 2006-
2007 CDBG Application Workshop
will be held at the Gainesville
University Hilton beginning at 8:30
a.m. on Thursday, June 1. (We will
miss the Commission meeting that day
in order to attend this CDBG
Application Workshop.
C. We recommend that the
Commission hold its CDBG First
Public Hearing during the
Commission's June 15 evening
meeting.
SHIP/HHR
I. We have been contacted by
several people during the past couple
weeks concerning the eligibility of
Felita Carter. We have contacted SHIP
Program Manager, Darlene Raker, and -
under current Dixie County
SHIP/HHR policies, Ms. Carter is not
eligible for either program. In order to
assist any applicant in Ms. Carter's
situation, the Commission must revise
its Housing Assistance Plan(s) for a
truly Special Circumstance (or some
other appropriate name for the
assistance element within the HAP).
II. While you are considering
changing eligibility or participation
criteria, we need some ideas as how to


make the Commission's housing
assistance programs more equitable to
every applicant, not just elderly and
handicapped applicants- We suggest
that you use a set aside for elderly and
handicapped assistance, or for all non-
elderly and handicapped applicants.
Suggestions:
a. Set aside more funds for Down
Payment Assistance and eliminate or
reduce New Construction and/or
Housing Rehabilitation elements.
b. Increase the maximum award for
Emergency Repairs (i.e., $ 12,000 to $
15,000).
Ill. For all practical purposes,
Dixie County has committed its
Hurricane Housing Recovery
allocation and this means we can no
longer repair mobile homes because
the only funds we have available are


S I IP allocations.
Arthiur Bellot inquired i Citndy Dey,
Finance should attend thie Joune I"
Workshop and the Boaid agiced that
she should attend.
Mr. Edwards stated thal the CDBG
2"" Public Hearing must be held before
July 21". He will prepare the
advertisement and it will be in the
local newspaper.
Commissioner Hays discussed
amending the HAP Plan where age is a
actor. It must first be brought before
the Committee and the Committee will
bring it to the Board.
The need for a Workshop was
brought up by Commissioner Lamb.
Mr. Edwards stated that we must
stay in compliance.
SUWANNEE WATER & SEWER
BOARD AND SWIG MEMBER
The fire hydrant issue was
discussed. Ray Thomas will put
together an agreement with Lindsey
Lander. Paul Barcia, SWIG
representative stated SWIG has agreed
to install taps and can install the fire
hydrants if they are supplied by
someone else. SWSB and SWIG
asked for assistance from the Board of
Commissioners.
Commissioner Hays stated that in
lieu of connecting fees for their condos
SWIG has agreed to do this project.
Mr. Barcia stated that SWIG agreed
to purchase the grinder pumps and
give them to the SWSB for installation
in the condos.
Lindsey Lander stated that if an
agreement is not worked out the fees
can not be waived.
Lillian Smith discussed concerns
about water production and
distribution.
Commissioner Hays stated the he
will and feels this whole Board will
support the decision of SWSB.
Chad Reed inquired as to what will
happen if SWSB decides they don't
need the fire hydrants.
The representatives from SWSB
stated that they are not going to decide
that; we want the fire hydrants, taps
and for 10 inch lines to be installed.
Mr. Barcia stated if we can get the
County, SWSB, and the developer's
together things will go faster.
The Board asked SWSB and SWIG
to get together and make a decision
and bring it back to this Board.
BETTIE GAIL OSTEEN.
INDIGENT HEALTHCARE AGENT
Bettie Gail Osteen came before the
Board and presented the HCRA
Monthly Caseload and Appeals Report
for the months of March 2006 and
April 2006. She stated that it is hard
to contact people; either they move
without using a forwarding address
and phone number or give incorrect
information at the hospitals.
The Board thanked Ms. Osteen for
her efforts.
JERRY PRATER, VETERANS
SERVICE OFFICER
Mr. Prater was unable to attend
today's meeting, due to his attendance
to the Health Fair at the County
Library. His Veterans Service Report
dated May 4, 2006 was submitted to
the Board and Clerk.
JOE RUTH SOLID WASTE
COORDINATOR
Joe came back before the Board and
informed them that Mr. DePew from
CMD Trailer Sales and Leasing, Inc.
can't meet the bid they gave to Levy
County due to the time frame and
price increases.
Joe informed the Board that due to
some arson situations at various sites
the State would not issue the county an
open fire permit; but with Larry
Grubbs (State Forester) and Arthur
Bellot's help we finally got it
approved. The county must obtain a
portable air curtain in the near future.
Commissioner Lamb stated that the
county may want to look into
acquiring a tub grinder chipper. It
could be utilized by chipping the
branches and then the public citizens
could use the mulch.
The Board expressed appreciation to
Joe and Arthur for their hard work.
HOWARD REED. COUNTY
ROAD SUPERINTENDENT
Mr. Howard Reed gave the Board an
update on the dragline. He requested
that the Board allow him to do some
finish work and put a coat of paint on
it.
The Board approved the request.
JACK SPIVEY, BUILDING

ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR
An email from Diane Scholz, Asst.
Coordinator Rural Issues for the Office
of Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development requesting the execution
of the Rural Area of Critical Concern
MOA by the Board of County
Commission. This was approved
during the March 16, 2006 and
executed by the Board and mailed. It
is evident that it has been lost.
Commissioner Lamb is the contact
person and Arthur Bellot is the second

Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and carried to approve the signature
for the replacement MOA and contact
persons; the name of the Chairman
designation needs to be amended on
the document.
The advertisement for a Janitor at
the Courthouse was presented for
approval by Mr. Bellot.
Motion by Commissioner Lamb,
seconded by Commissioner Hays and
carried to approve the advertisement.
The Road Department has need of a
Tractor/Mower Operator and would
like to offer it in-house first; but
reserve the right to advertise in the
local newspaper if in-house doesn't fill
the position.
The Board agreed.
Arthur informed the Board that the
advertisement for bids on CR351A
went in this week's paper. Frank
Darabi will be present at the next
meeting to present the recommended
bid.
DCA Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR) Related Amendments

comprehensive plan discussed. This
will be looked further into and
discussed at a future meeting.
A letter from Jeffrey Brokaw, Chief
Forensic Investigator and Medical
Examiners Office of Jacksonville,
Florida regarding ME#06-0267 Dorie
presented for discussion by Mr. Bellot.
The Board agreed for County
Attorney Lindsey Lander to contact
Mr. Brokaw and inform him that the
Board of County Commissioners
agrees to deny the request.
Arthur Bellot informed the Board
that Jay Boiling of Dixie Aviation has
informed him of some problems with
the Cross City Airport license renewal.
There are several items that need to be
addressed and they fall under the
responsibility of the County.
Commissioner Hays stated that it
seems that it would be in Dixie
Aviation's best interest to assist the
County with these needs.
After more discussion, motion by
Commissioner Hays, seconded by
to go ahead with the needs, but do not

exceed $10,000.00. The Board asked
Arthur Bellot to handle the project.
Arthur informed the Board that he
received a quote from Illingworth
Engineering Company for a Lochinvar
Copper Fin 2 Model CHN0991
propane fired HVAC water boiler for
$8,050.00 with a $300.00 start-up fee
plus travel expenses. He stated that it
falls below $10,000 so it is not
required for the County to receive
bids. This is the company that has
done maintenance on our old boiler
and the jail's systems for years. They
have always given us priority service.
Motion by Commissioner Land,
seconded by Commissioner Lamb and
carried to purchase the water boiler.
Financing of the furnace was
discussed. Arthur Bellot stated that he
had funds in his budget for an
assistant that has not been used and
recommends that this could be utilized
for the furnace.
The Board agreed to use the
recommended funds.
Two options for the replacement for
the jail fire alarm were discussed.
Option #1 will cost approximately


$17,230 for a conventional quick start
with a one year warranty. Option #2
will cost approximately $23,179.50 for
an addressable quick start with a three
year warranty. It was stated that this
outage constitutes an emergency due
to the nature of the equipment
involved.
The Board agreed and decided to
proceed to replace without formal bid
process.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
and unanimously carried to declare the
situation as an emergency and
purchase the system using option #2.
Arthur discussed a letter from Mike
Cassidy, Town of Cross City Manager
regarding the 1988 4WD Chevrolet
Truck owned by the County. The City
is in the start-up phase for the Spray


held in the Barber Pasture/SRWMD
property and operations will require
daily inspection in terrain that will
require a 4WD. This truck will meet
the needs of the City. The City asks
the County to consider the sell or
donation of this vehicle. During the
discussion, it was mentioned that the
truck sits unused at the county yard
and the City has donated to the County
before.
Motion by Commissioner Hays,
seconded by Commissioner Lamb and
carried to donate the truck to the City.
Arthur stated that the Public
Defenders need space for meeting with

Nutritional Class August 9th
National Health Center Week August 6-12
Consumer driven health care may seem like a new idea, but
few people realize that it has been around for over forty-years -
and saving lives. It is found in a nationwide network of health care
providers called Community Health Centers (CHCs) that are all
run by patient-majority community boards. While conventional
wisdom may suggest that putting the patients in charge might drive
up the cost of health care, the results on the front lines of public
health have been precisely the opposite: the health care delivered
by health centers is more cost-effective and results-driven than
anywhere else in America.
Community Boards at health centers have racked up public
health successes, such as lower infant mortality rates and reduced
health disparities for chronic diseases. They have also helped avert
some public health disasters. Dangerous pesticides in Florida were
restricted after a health center found an epidemic of skin rashes
and burning eyes among migrant farm workers there. An
antibiotic-resistant strain of Staphylococcus infections was
aggressively stamped out in Southwest Texas with a targeted

Springhouse Quilter's News


Edna Barron and Elaine Faison enjoying reminiscing over
pictures of 4-H projects, quilting projects and previous fun
activities of Springhouse.
Springhouse Quilters were surprised at their monthly meeting
in July when a previous resident of Gilchrist County and member
of Springhouse, Ms. Edna Barron, returned from Arkansas for a
brief visit with friends and family.
Ms. Edna, as she is affectionately called, was and is still a
member of Springhouse quilters for many years. She was a great
supporter of Springhouse during the acquisition and locating of
Springhouse to the present location. She was also a great
supporter of all Springhouse 4-H summer sewing camps and
quilting projects. Ms. Edna moved from Gilchrist County early
this year to relocate to be near her daughter. We miss Ms. Edna
but she is always welcome to visit during any of her return visits.
Springhouse members will be enjoying a workshop this
month by Mary Rawlins. She will be presenting a workshop on a
wearable, flannel rag-jacket. Members will need to signup for
this workshop during the regular meeting which will be on
August 8, beginning at 9:00 AM.
Springhouse Quilters will be raffling two quilts during the
Trenton downhome days event in November. Tickets for these
quilts are available from Springhouse guild members or at the
Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop in Trenton. One quilt is a small
wall hanging, in patriotic colors, with an angel completed in red
and blue work on each square. This quilt was made and donated
to the guild by the Nite Owls. The second quilt is a double
wedding ring made by the former Mrs. Willie Gilliam of Bell and
donated to the guild by the Gilliam family.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Anna
Gilliam 463 7922 or Lois Scott, 463 2207, or any guild member.

Dixie District Schools

Develop Wellness Policy
There are more overweight and obese children in our nation
than ever before. Much of it is blamed on poor eating habits and
not enough exercise. When school opens on August 7, 2006, we
will be implementing a wellness policy that is now required by the
federal government that addresses physical education and nutrition.
Dixie District Schools are committed to school and worksite
environments that promote and protect children's health, well
being, and ability to learn and employee's health by promoting and
supporting healthy eating, physical activity and healthy lifestyles.
The district policy was drafted from recommendations made by
the Dixie District Schools Health Advisory Committee. Among the
guidelines are regulations on food with minimal nutritional value,
which include but are not limited to foods high in sugar and in fat
content. There are guidelines for rewards, school parties, snacks
and fundraising activities. Nutrition and portion size guidelines are
also in place for individually sold items. No foods other than those
provided through the School Food Service shall be sold on any
campus during school hours. This complies with the competitive
food law and the Jessica Lunsford Act. (This means no other
business or organization can sell or deliver food on school
campus).
All food made available on campus, this includes party food
and snack food must adhere to the food safety and security
guidelines. (This means no home baked food will be allowed).
This policy made does not restrict what food parents provide

Did You Know?


(NAPS)-According to a
recent global survey con-
ducted by AXA, Americans
are being cautious with the
funds that should last
through retirement. Nearly
80 percent of American
workers prefer to invest in
financial products with a
modest return on investment
and no financial risk. Even
so, Americans lead all sur-
veyed nations in financial
risk-taking, despite conser-
vative investment strate-
gies. For more information

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006


0, i


Once again Kathy & David Haas have brought us amazing
pictures of a hummingbird and her nest... however this time we get
to see the new baby chick that she so patiently cares for.
Incubation time on a hummer's nest is approximately 14 days.
Once hatched, the hen stays busy feeding her chick every 20
minutes. When the chick is 21 to 22 days old, she will begin to
construct another nest which will be larger and enable the chick to
stretch its wings.
When the chick is strong enough, usually around 25 days, it
will go on its own. If conditions allow, it can survive for 5-6 years
in the wild.
Some predators of the hummingbirds include cats, other birds
such as hawks, spiders and even praying mantis. Frogs have also
been known to capture hummers, however, because the hummer is
much bigger than an insect and both the frog and bird usually both
parish. While bees and wasps don't eat hummingbirds, they are
known to attack them. A single sting may be fatal to a hummer,
because there isn't enough body mass to absorb the venom.
Fun Hummer Facts: They do perch, however they have weak
feet and do not use them for transportation. They can fly backward,
shift sideways and stop in midair. They can beat their wings 60 to
200 time per second and fly up to 60 miles per houLr
Hummingbirds lap up nectar with the tongues which are hollow,
like a straw; consuming up to 50% of their weight in sugar a day.
Hummers don't actually sing like other birds, instead they vocalize
by chirping notes.
Thanks again Kathy & David!
