Local Businessman Dannv Liles Named To Board

SRWMD Closes On

2,481-Acre Ranch In

Lafayette County


Brothers Arrested




In Meth Lab Bust


The Steinhatchee River will be protected, equestrians will have
a new place to ride, and local ecotourism opportunities will
increase, thanks to the vision and generosity of a Lafayette
County couple who transferred ownership of their 2,481-acre
ranch to the Suwannee River Water Management District.

On July 26, the
District closed on the
e purchase of the property
from Frank "Red" and
Olive Schulte, owners
of the R.O. Ranch, and
from R.O. Ranch, Inc.,
LAFAYETTE a nonprofit Florida
S',. corporation that will
oversee and manage
operations on the
... property, including a
planned equestrian
center.

With the total land
valued at $6.5 million,
the Schultes earlier this
0 a, year donated a
substantial $3.5-million
interest in the land to
R.O. Ranch, Inc. Proceeds of the sale of the corporation's
interest to the District will be placed in an endowment and used
to fund future management activities on the ranch.

The property is located at the northern end of
approximately 20,000 acres of District lands that run along the
Steinhatchee River for a distance of about 15 miles. Two major
creeks running through the property Owl Creek and Crossway
Branch feed into the Steinhatchee River.

Brothers James Dale
Bryant and Michael Alan
Bryant of Old Town remain in
the Dixie County Jail on
$100,000.00 bond each after
law enforcement discovered a
methamphetamine lab on their
Old Town property. The Dixie
County Sheriff's Department
Drug Task Force stated they
are pleased with the arrest and
the fact that one more of the
deadly "meth labs" have been
removed.
According to DSO
Investigator Johnny Valentine,
Deputy John Simmons
discovered the lab while on
routine patrol in the Old Town
Hammock area. While driving
along the Matt and Plantation
Roads, he noticed a strong
chemical order. Having
pinpointed where he felt the
odor was coming from; he
called the Drug Task Force to
come and investigate while
staying in the area, continuing
his surveillance.
Valentine and Deputy
Jamie King joined Simmons at
the suspected home. As they
walked toward the gate they
saw two while males run.
Michael Bryant was found
behind a shed, hiding in the
brushes. It would take four
hours before they would find
his brother, James, hiding
under the mobile home.
The Cross City
Correctional Institute K-9 Unit
assisted in tracking the two
men. The Dixie County
Emergency Services Hazmat

remove the evidence from the make-shift lab, located in a small
.. shed on the property. Chemicals used to make the drug were found
in the shed. Liquids found have been sent off for analysis.
"'. ,'.- < Sheriff Dewey Hatcher, who was on the scene, stated that he
was pleased with the performance of his deputies and noted that
S-it their training has been an asset in their department's "War on
Drugs". "It is always bittersweet when you find these labs," stated
Hatcher. "While we are pleased to have removed this hazard from
the area, it is a shame that we even have to deal with such
dangerous drugs."
.A Both James Bryant and Michael Bryant were charged with
Possession of Listed Chemicals, Manufacturing of
Methamphetamine and Resisting Arrest Without Violence. James

who she lies %ith. When she
was just four years old, they
found out that Whittney had Whittney & Scout, on their first ride.
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.
"It was the week after Easter, 2003, when we found out," stated Lois. "For three years we
traveled to Shands Oncology Center for treatment," she added. "I'm not sure how we got there some
days. I think the car just knew the way!" In June 2005, Whittney had her last chemo treatment. As
of last week, she has been in remission, and the weekly trips to the Center will now only be every six
weeks.
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia is the most common type of leukemia under the age of 19. An
average of 3,970 new cases is diagnosed each year in the United States alone. Children are usually
its victim, but it canoccur at any age. See "DREAM"page 5

:Has Pat joined Big Al's fan club?
Evangelist Pat Robertson recently announced that he has
-changed his mind about global warming. Why, only last year, Pat
twas on board with the rest of us right-wing radicals, saying that it
wasn't happening. "and accusing the National Association of
Evangelicals of "teaming up with far-left environmentalists" by
'asserting that global warming was not only happening, but was
caused by humans and remedial action needed to be taken now, not
-later.
But now, he's jumped ship. He says it's so doggoned hot that it
-must be due to human activity. The polar ice caps are melting,
there is more carbon dioxide in the air, and it's all because of
-people abusing the atmosphere with cars, trucks, factories, bovine
-flatulence and other pollutants. Polar bears are drowning, either
because their habitat has melted or they forgot how to swim, but
-either way, it's the fault of human activity.

I've only been around for 72 years, but every summer I can
recall, both here in the sunny South and up North (where it gets at
-least as hot in the summer and a helluva lot colder in the winter), a
:bunch of people will say, "This is the hottest one I can remember."
All right, maybe that's because they can only remember back about
six or eight months. I have that problem sometimes. And I don't
,expect Pat Robertson to remember back to the year he was born,
,that being 1930, but that was the hottest summer on record, and it
'was all Herbert Hoover's fault, just like the Great Depression, only
;liberals had not yet figured out that they could blame the President
Ifor the weather.
Remember that story about how the Florida peninsula would
soon be under water? As I recall, that was back in the 1970's,
before the global warming craze replaced the theory that we were
experiencing global cooling, and would soon see the emergence of
a new ice age. Anyway, a lot of people were conned into selling out
cheap and buying property in New Orleans.
As far as I know, Pat Robertson had nothing to do with that
,scam, but he has come up with some rather far out prognosti-
cations all the same.
For example, in May of this year, he said that a revelation from
'God informed him that America's coastlines would be hard-hit by
-severe. storms this year, especially the northwest, where something
'on the order of a tsunami might impact that region. Oddly enough,
.this divine revelation was re-revealed to ordinary mortals via Pat's
"700 Club" shortly after the History Channel aired a special
entitled, "West Cost Tsunami."
Pat has also accused certain mainstream Christian
,denominations of harboring "...the spirit of the Antichrist."
:Among those mentioned were the Methodists, Presbyterians and
'Episcopalians. My old Granny was a Methodist, and she'd have
snatched him bald-headed for that remark.
Not that doing so wouldn't have been a real challenge for
Granny, or even Hulk Hogan, if Pat is to be taken at his word that
.he can leg lift 2,000 pounds, owing to a dietary supplement he
endorses. To get this in perspective, Dan Kendra set a leg-lifting
"record of 1,335 pounds while at FSU, later going on to play in the
:NFL and become a Navy SEAL. Of course, Pat's alleged feat has
never been publicly performed or officially recorded, so go figure.
As for Pat's recent conversion to the global warming mindset,
could it be that he was influenced by Al Gore's movie, "An
SInconvenient Truth.?"
- Shame on me for even thinking such a thing!

Letter To The Editor
Regarding the letter from Mr. Norman Ellliott; I challenge you
sir, and all who may read this, to enlighten your view of the State
of Israel by reading "The Roots of Jehad, the Everlasting
Hatred". While you are reading this fascinating expose', make an
attempt to place yourself in their position. The American people
as a whole suffer from a great lack of knowledge in terms of
world history and of basic Biblical truths. Unfortunately, this
lack of knowledge will, in all probability lead to our own
destruction. We have the. great advantage of retrospective vision,
but we refuse to employ it.
The majority of our population considers history a boring
topic. As a result we are woefully ignorant of our previous errors
and destined to repeat the same mistakes we have made in times
past. We also have been given a view of future events, but in the
same way, many have regarded the Bible as boring and irrelevant
for today. I feel assured that fellow believers who read this
today will heartily agree that watching prophecy unfold before
our eyes is anything but boring. It confirms what we already
knew, and gives assurance that the other things that have been
prophesied will also come to pass.
Because of this I, as do many, remain convinced that
those nations who uphold and stand behind Israel will become the
victors in the final hour. Abandonment of this principal will seal
our destiny as a nation, and doom us to a greater judgment as
surely as "it is written". It has been said, "to those who believe,
no explanation is necessary, and to those that do not believe, no
explanation will do". To which group do you belong?
Nancy Hastings
of Little Rock, Arkansas

Letter To Editor
I am all for progress in this county. I would love to see
business come in and provide jobs for our people and tax revenue
for our county. To see our roads get upgraded and paved. I hear
and see all this growth in Cheifland going on and not anything
happening in our county. It makes me wonder why this is, and
why this is not happening here. I have read in our paper at
different times that this business or that business is considering
coming into our county. Then nothing more gets said. Usually it
comes down to there are not enough services provided for them to
sustain their business and it nixes the deal.
Now here is the question. what are our commissioners doing
to encourage new growth? Are they spending OUR money
wisely to benefit everyone or to benefit a chosen few? I am
baffled. How is the spending of $645,000.00 plus dollars going
to benefit the majority of our citizens every day life? People need
to ask themselves this very question seriously. Three acres of
scrub land for a parking lot is an outrage! How about so many of
our roads that need to be paved? That are not graded properly
and have lost width and drainage ditches.
I live in the hammock area and have seen a steady degrading
of the condition of these roads. When this is brought up to our
commissioners we are told there just is not enough money in the
coffers to fix these problems. Was this big purchase with OUR
money brought before the people? Were we made aware of the
consideration of this purchase so we could give our
commissioners our input? NOT that I am aware of. I saw no
posting in the paper for this. If I am wrong I know I will be told
so. If I am not wrong, then people of Dixie County we need to
get up in arms. We need to attend the next commissioners
meeting and let them know how we feel. This is an election year.
I know I will be at the next meeting. I also.wwant some questions
answered. How they will be answered will determine how I vote
this year. I take my vote very seriously and everyone else in this
county should too. We have a voice only if we use it.

Editor
Re: "The Root Causes"
from Norman Elliott 7/27/06
The fact is the vast
majority of people in this
country are not anti-Zionists,
the majority of anti-Zionists
are in the Middle East and are
Arabs.
Your belief the reason
Israel was returned to the Jews
was to separate them from
other people couldn't be
farther from the truth. If you
studied your history you would
find that the first time the
name Palestine was used in
70A.D. when the Romans
committed genocide against
the Jews, smashed the Temple
and declared the land of Israel
would be no more. The
Romans promised it would be
known as Palestine. The name
was derived from the
Philistines, A Goliathian
people conquered by the Jews
centuries earlier.
There is no language
known as Palestinian, there is
no distinct Palestinian culture,
Palestinians are Arabs like all
other Arabs. Furthermore,
Arabs control 99.9% of Middle
East lands, Israel has 9/10 of
1% of the land. Therefore your
statement that Israel's nuclear
arsenal and the Israeli
occupation of Palestinian,
Syrian, and Lebanese lands is
incorrect, in fact it is their
GOD given land. To say that
Hezbollah would happily end
the rocket firing into Israel if
Israel would stop the bombing
is another fairytale. Israel isn't
trying to fix any cause for the
current conflict in the minds of
people except that they will not
be destroyed and/or removed
from their GOD given country
by anyone.
UN Resolution 1559 (I
think in 1996) stated that
Lebanon would disband all
militias and their arms
including Hezbollah in
addition the UN sent 2000


took place, reality is 15,000
rockets were moved from
Syria to Lebanon and they kept
all their arms. Hezbollah is a
terrorist group and has vowed
to wipe Israel off the face of
the earth, it is financed and
supplied with arms and money
by Iran and Syria who are
supplied with the arms by
Russia in return for large
quantities of their oil dollars
and a promise of a sea port on
the Mediterranean Sea when
Israel is gone.
It seems to me that
Washington's policy so far has
been to state that Israel has the
right to defend itself, perhaps
you should have started out
with "Once Upon A Time:.
Were you aware that Israel is
the only industrialized nation
in the Middle East, the balance
of the nations depends solely
on oil for income.

Q : I received a delinquency
notice saying I am behind on
my child support payments. I
know I am up-to-date. Why has
this happened and what do I do
know?

A In order for a Notice of
Delinquency to be issued, the
depository records of the Clerk
of the Court must reflect that a
payment is more than 15 days
late. If you feel ihe Notice of
Delinquency was issued in
error, there are several things
you can do. You are stating that
you know you are up-to-date,
so the first thing you should do
is call the depository, state that
you received a Notice of
Delinquency and you do not
agree with the records. The
depository clerk will access
your case and review the
records with you over the
phone, if possible. Some cases
are too involved for a phone
review and you may be asked
to bring your records or pay
stubs, if your support is taken
directly out of your paycheck,
into the office for a more in
depth review.

There are a number of reasons
why the depository records
may not coincide with yours.
These are just a few of the
reasons:
1. You have made payments
directly to the custodial parent
after the court ordered
payments through the
depository. Direct payments
can be considered a gift and
you may, not be given the
credit.
2. You did not realize that you
were responsible for making
the payments until your
employer started the
deductions. Your employer has
two weeks from the time they

receive the court order until
they have to start the
deductions. That also applies
when you change jobs. You
must make the payments until
your new employer starts
deducting it from your check.
3. There may be a change in
circumstances that the
depository is not aware of,
such as a change in custody or
the emancipation of a child.
Always make the depository
aware of any new court orders
that affect your support
payments.
4. A payment has been remitted
to the State Disbursement Unit
but it is not posted on the
depository records. Under
these conditions the depository
will request that the State
Disbursement Unit research the
payment. The Notice of
Delinquency will be put on

convenience. Please keep in
mind that your motion to

to Chad Reed for all he did to
calm my nerves during my
ordeal. He was a very big help
to me.

RANCH

Cont. From Pg. 1

The Schultes have owned and lived on the property since the
early 1970s, managing the land as a working cattle ranch. Their
desire to prevent future subdivision of the property, and their
dream of promoting trail riding and other equestrian activities in
the area, led to their partnership with the District.

The District created R. 0. Ranch, Inc. in order to facilitate the
Schulte's donation and to assist with the management of an
equestrian facility. A board of directors will govern the affairs of
the nonprofit corporation. In addition to Mr. Schulte, the
following individuals are members of the board of directors:

Coleen Agner is a Taylor County middle-school teacher
and an accomplished equestrian. As a volunteer leader
for the Taylor County 4-H horse program, Agner runs
an equine program that includes a horse club, horse
camps, horse shows and judging. She volunteers with
the Live Oak Hounds Pony Club in Thomasville,
Georgia, and serves on the Florida Farm Bureau
Equine Advisory Board.
Annette Land resides in Branford and is owner of Land
Brokerage Realtor. In 2002 she was named "Woman of
the Year in Agriculture" by the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Florida
State Fair Authority. She is a member of the Florida
Cattlemen Association, National Angus Association,
Florida Cutting Horse Association, National Cutting
Horse Association, and Suwannee River Riding Club.
Danny Liles is manager of Liles Hardware in Cross City.
Liles is chief of the Dixie County volunteer fire
department, as well as an EMT. In 2005 he was
presented the Ray Warren Community Service Award
by the Dixie County Chamber of Commerce.
Louis Shiver is the Suwannee River Water Management
District Governing Board representative on the Board
of Directors and serves as its chairman. He is president
of Shiver Dairy Farm, Inc., of Mayo, and a member of
the Suwannee River Partnership, Florida Cattlemen
Association, and Southeast Milk, Inc.
.The District and R.O. Ranch, Inc. are now in the process of
selecting a planning and design firm to create a master plan for
the ranch. A preliminary site evaluation indicated that the
property is suitable for a number of equestrian activities
including trail and endurance riding, western pleasure riding,
rodeo events, carriage driving, cross country riding, and
showing/schooling.

The target date for groundbreaking on the project is mid
2007.

Boyd Holds District Healthcare Council Meeting


Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida) this week hosted a meeting with the
District Healthcare Council to discuss local
hcalthcare issues and concerns, including
federal appropriations requests and rural
hospitals in North Florida. The District
Healthcare Council is comprised of 24
representatives from 16 counties across North
Florida.
"Access to quality, affordable healthcare is
a critical part of American life," said
Congressman Boyd. "Although much more
needs to be done in Washington, there is more
that we can do at home as well. It is my hope
that the District Healthcare Council will start
thinking regionally, so the counties can come
together and pool their resources to improve
the overall quality of healthcare in North
Florida."
At this week's meeting, Congressman
Boyd had two main objectives for the District
Healthcare Council. The first objective was
for the council to focus on regionalized
problem solving. Up to this point, the
Congressman had asked the counties to focus
on their individual concerns.

Dairy Queen Loves Ki
Thursday, August 10, Dairy Queen will be
helping kids one Blizzard at a time by donating
all the proceeds from each Blizzard sale for the
entire day to the Children's Miracle Network.
The Dairy Queen system has been a proud
sponsor of Children's Miracle Network (CMN)
since 1984. During the past 22 years, Dairy
Queen Operators throughout the United States
and Canada have raised more than $59 million
for CMN. Our support enables us to give
something back to the communities in which we
do business.
CMN hospitals represent the premier
pediatric healthcare facilities in their respective
communities, treating children of all afflictions,


However, at this meeting, Congressman
Boyd encouraged members of the District
Healthcare Council to consider the healthcare
concerns of surrounding counties as well. The
second objective was to push the counties to
work more closely with the business
community and state and local agencies and
make them active participants in achieving the
healthcare goals of North Florida.

Congressman Boyd formed the District
Healthcare Council in 2005 to tackle
healthcare issues locally. Each county was
given the task of choosing a representative to
serve on the District Healthcare Council.
Representing Dixie County is County
Commissioner Marcus Hays.

"The District Healthcare Council
assembles people from all different professions
and points of view so that the discussions and
solutions will be comprehensive and
representative of our unique district," Boyd
stated. "By bringing the district together, we
can better serve the healthcare needs of North
Floridians.

ids!
including cancer, birth defects, accidents and
muscular and cardiovascular diseases. These
facilities, which provide care based on filling
the needs of families rather than on their ability
to pay, treat more than 17 million kids each
year.
Our local Children's Miracle Network
hospital is Shands Children's Hospital at the
University of Florida. One-hundred percent of
the funds we raised stay local to benefit children
from all over Florida and South Georgia.

So remember, THURSDAY, AUGUST
10t...come out and enjoy a Blizzard and help
our kids.

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!

The Word

Made Flesh
MARK, NUMBER, & NAME OF
THE BEAST
Continued from last week. I,
-the son of man, say the word
"Beast" that is used in the Mark,
'-the Number, and the Name of the
Beast, is used as a "type of the
rising up of the carnal mind" in
.the creature to today. From the
time of the falling away from God
;in the Garden of Eden, the
"'carnal" freshly beastly nature
of man has prevailed. Now in
these last days we are already into
the powers of the great harlot
which sitteth upon many waters (
read Revelation 17:1-3).
I, the son of man, say in
-Revelation, Chapter 13, the King
-James Version of the Holy
:_Scripture, I want you to look at
some Bible references with me out
of this chapter. In Rev. 13:1-9.
John the Revelation ( or writer of
-this book) sees something taking
"-.place in the sea. Let us read, "And
'I stood upon the sand of the sea,
.and saw a beast rise up out of the
:sea, having seven heads and ten
horns, and upon his head the name
!'.of blasphemy. And the beast
"-which I saw was like unto a
'olepard, and ,his feet were as feet
jof a bear, and his mouth as the
"'mouth of a lion: and the dragon
Save him his power, and his seat,
*and a great authority. And, I saw
'o.ne of his heads as it were
-wounded to death; and his deadly
..-wound was healed: and all the
S"world wondered after the beast.
K' And, they worshipped the
.dragon, which gave power unto
'the beast: and they worshipped the
beast, saying, who is like unto the
..beast? Who is able to make war
S:with him? And there. was given
Sunto him a mouth speaking great
things and blasphemies; and
:.power was given unto him to
'...,continue forty and two months.
--]And he opened his mouth in
Sblasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, and his.
: ,'tabernacle, and them that dwell in
heaven. And it was given him to
make war with the saints, and to
overcome them: and power was
'.:given to him over all kindred's,
and tongues, and nations. And all
: .that dwell upon the earth shall
worship him, whose names are not
written in the book of life of the
: .Lamb slain from the foundation of
the world. If any man have an ear,
let him hear." I, the son of man,
say there is trouble shown coming

"Behold The Tabernacle of God
Re% 21:3
"God"
Continue from last week, I the Day of the Lord, say ALL Things are to
be brought into His Love. That "God in Love" (1 John 4:16) is the
emphatic declaration of the Word and "perfect love casteth out all fear "
So we can see how the divine influx of Love and grace will purge out all
hate, fear, envy, strife bitterness and every evil thing. For IN HIM the full
plan of redemption shall be fulfilled, and nought shall stop, hinder or
disannul it- all shall be fulfilled, and all shall come back into the place
where GOD IS ALL IN ALL. I the Day of the Lord, say, That in the
dispensation of the fullness of time He might gather together in one ALL
Things IN THE Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth".
As weread in Ephesians 1:10.
.. What is the scope of all things? Colossians 1:16 helps us to define
ai things "For Him were ALL THINGS created, that are in heaven, and
.that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers; ALL THINGS were created by Him, and for
Him." Yes, it is ALL THINGS that are to be reconciles into Him, this is
the, unalterable truth of God's precious Word. Phil, 2:10 I the Day of the
Lord, say that at (Greek IN) the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of
thing in heaven, and things in earth. IN HIS NAME. No man can say
that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. (1 Cor. 12:3). You name it:
subterranean or, Hades, or things visible and present of things to come-all
things are to be reconciled to God, thoroughly changed and brought back
into Him. I the Day of the Lord say NOT only has Christ borne the sin of
those who believe and accept Him now as their Savior; but He has also
borne the sin for all those who must first be subdued before they'll accept
and believe on Him. He has indeed borne all the sin of all the world. John
chapter nine, verse twenty nine;" Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin OF THE WORLD. I the Day of the Lord say The Lamb slain
from the foundation of the world ( REV. 13:8) "but was manifest in these
last times for you" (1 Pet. 1:20) knowing that He has carried the load of
sin for us all. Continued Next week


It is unwise to be too sure
of one's own wisdom. It
is healthy to be reminded
that the strongest might
weaken and the wisest
might err.

Thank God for another wonderful day...without Him, we would
be nothing! As the year presses onward, we rejoice in continuing
His work, looking forward to every day in which we're privileged
to hear His Word proclaimed and enjoy His bountiful blessings of
life.
We will have our monthly Fellowship Supper on Wednesday
evening, Aug. 16th, followed by the Oldie Goldie Banquet on
Saturday evening, Aug. 19th. As the new school year gets
underway, please be ever-mindful of the need for slower speeds in
the school zones.
It is always good to have visitors with us at New

fellowship with us anytime! Please remember to pray for those on
the various church prayer lists, our President and other leaders, and

Faith Baptist Church News
What a mighty God we serve. Today was a wonderful day in
the house of the Lord. We had lots of visitors, the service was
spiritual and we could feel the Lord in our midst. The special
music was great as always, and Bro. Jackie did his usual good job
in the pulpit of delivering the messages God had laid on his heart.
We always want to be thankful for all God's blessings. He is so
good to us. Some of our folks had been on vacation and were back
safe and sound today, others are leaving this week and we pray for
their safe return as well.
Remember this week to pray for the less fortunate, the sick, the
lost and invite a friend or neighbor to Sunday School and Church
with you next week. Wednesday night will be our regular monthly
business meeting. We will be electing some of the officers, so if
you are a member of Faith, come out and take a part in this. Also,
if you feel that you are being called to serve on a committee, teach
a class, work with the youth or just whatever God has in mind for
you, be sure to sign up. There will be a blank sign-up sheet on the
bulletin board where you can write your name in. There's a job for
anyone who wants it.
We pray that God keeps you safe, happy, and healthy this
coming week and we look forward to seeing you for Prayer
Meeting, Sunday School and Church this week.

A NOTE FROM CANDIDATE
WILLIAM (BILL) DAMPIER
FOR DISTRICT 2 -
COUNTY COMMISSIONER .

***VOTE***
Folks, I have met a lot of people in Dixie County already that have been born and raised here
and some that have been here just a couple of years and I seem to be hearing the same
statement from every resident. (It's Time For A Change). To implement change I need your votes
September 5th; together we can get the ball rolling.
I recently had a visit at my private residence from Commissioner Alton Land of District 2, who
stated that he wanted to meet me since we had not met. I assured him we had met because I
have attended a few of the Commission Board meetings; one in particular at the first meeting
discussing the migrant camp. This paper stated I was very outspoken in their article the following
week. I have found, to be heard you have to be outspoken at times and if it gets responsive
results, even better! I informed Commissioner Land that there was no ill felt feelings, but I
wanted his job! We shook hands and left it at that. So folks, get out and be heard Sept. 5th by
voting. God bless the residents of Dixie County.

Assistance Available To Forest Landowners


TALLAHASSEE, FL -
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson recently
announced a program that will
help people who own forest
land to manage that resource.
The Department's Division of
Forestry will hold a sign-up for
enrollment in the Forest Land
Enhancement Program (FLEP)
from August- 4 through
September 15.
This program, authorized
under the 2002 Farm Bill, is
available to non-industrial
private forest landowners on a
75-25 cost share basis for most
practices. Eligible practices
include, but are not limited to:
site preparation, tree planting,
and prescribed burning
activities. Landowners who
own at least 10 acres but no
more that 10,000 acres of land


who have a multiple-resource
practice plan will be eligible to
receive funding assistance
under FLEP. A maximum of
$10,000 will be available for
each qualifying landowner
over the life of the Program as
reimbursement for incurred
expenses for approved
practices. Forest management
practices must be applied to a
minimum of 10 acres to
qualify for reimbursement.
Almost half of the state's
14 million acres of forestland
is owned by private non-
industrial forest landowners.
According to national, regional
and statewide landowner
surveys, most forest
landowners don't have a
management plan for their
property. The state's allocation
under the program will be used
for implementation of forest
practices prescribed in existing


or newly developed
management plans.
"It benefits everyone when
best management practices are
in place for forested property,"
Bronson said. "The forests are
a critical natural resource in
Florida and it is important to
preserve them as well as
mitigate any potential wildfire
danger."
Landowners can obtain
application forms from their
local Division of Forestry
office and from other
cooperating agencies. The
Division of Forestry's foresters
will provide technical
assistance to landowners and
will be the local contact person
for participating landowners.
For more information, contact
Taylor-Dixie County Forester,
Stan Shepard at (850) 838-
2286, or visit our website at

A jumping sturgeon
injured a man Sunday night,
knocking him off his personal
watercraft and into the
Suwannee River.
Blake Nicholas
Fessenden, 23, Wildwood, was
traveling north on the river at
approximately 30 miles per
hour, Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators said.
Just north of the Hart
Springs Sand Bar, Fessenden
looked back to locate his
girlfriend, Danielle Lowell
who was riding on another
personal watercraft. A four-
foot sturgeon jumped from the
water, hitting Fessenden,
causing him to fall from his
vessel and knocking him
unconscious, officials said.
Lowell, who went to
Fessenden's aid, held his head
above water. Passengers on
another vessel pulled
Fessenden from the water and
took him to the Hart Springs
Boat Ramp.
Fessenden was airlifted to
Shands Hospital in
Gainesville. He sustained non-
life threatening injuries, FWC
investigators said.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 2006


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin
College football's Garden of Eden
If it's not getting grades that seemed too good to be
true, then the problem is getting grades not good
enough.
If it's not getting money for not
working in one of those Sopranos "no-show"
jobs, then it's getting drunk or fighting, or
brandishing firearms.
The college football landscape is
loaded with land mines these days and a bunch
of them just exploded.
In Norman, Okla., Auburn, Ala.,
Coral Gables, Fla. and Knoxville, Tenn. last


week, college players were peeled away like onion skin as
young men fell victim to their own excesses, laziness or
general disregard for boundaries.
We find it so easy to pounce on them, these
post-puberty athletes who live in a testosterone world of
cash-on-the-come future pros subjected to the
temptations of hero-worshippers and beautiful babes. Who
among us would not likewise be tempted?
Some blame the coaches for not baby-sitting
the players 24/7. Still others accuse the programs of being
sleazy and indulgent.
For certain, it is a system fraught with flaws.
Each case is different, of course, but the one
that seems most devastating and confounding is that of
coach Bob Stoops and Sooners quarterback Rhett Bomar,
.vho was dismissed from the team for being overpaid by a
car dealership.
In recent days, I've heard about every
.'nceivable angle for blame from the ESPN talking heads
'nd j fe% of my sports writing colleagues. Some of them
disgust me
Certainly I'm not naive enough to think that
_.bllege football is above reproach and that cheating, cover-
ups. cash payments and outright academic fraud isn't
prevalent.
It's absurd to always blame the coaches,
however, and in the case of Stoops, I'd find it difficult to
believe he knew about Bomar's illegal payments.
I've known Bob Stoops personally for over 10
years and have spoken to him numerous times about a
,variety of issues. And if I've got to make a decision about a
man's ethics, I go with somebody I know who has always
displayed good moral character. I think he cares too much
about he game to do something so cheap and dishonest.
As recently as three weeks ago I talked for an
.hour with Stoops about the vagaries of coaching, his hopes
4: for a bright 2006 season and his respect for the coaching
profession. His father was a coach and so are two of his
:-brothers.
When he was Steve Spurrier's defensive
Scoordiniator at Floridi, nobody was a more strict
disciplinarian and.expected more of his players on or off
the field -than him. Defensive players knew: You don't
cross coach Stoops.
That's why he took such swift action in kicking
his star quarterback off the team. He wanted to send the
message that such behavior will not be tolerated. And at the
same lime,'he no doubt cost the Sooners a possible run at
the national championship.
Meanwhile, the strong move made by Larry
Coker at Miami last week was even more surprising. He
7


handed out a one-game suspension for four Hurricane
players, including running back Tyrone Moss and receiver
Ryan Moore, who were suspended for the Sept. 4 season
opener against Florida State because they "violated team
policy." (Moore will also be suspended for the second
game.)


-i


Coker can little afford a
hiccup these days because he, himself, is
sort of on an unspoken probation. A loss to
Florida State and subsequent stumbles
would likely spell an end to his work in
South Florida.
Phil Fulmer, another coach on
the hot seat, dismissed tight end Lee Smith
for being charged with druken driving on
the campus and suspended red-shirt
freshman Marsalous Johnson for


possession of a gun. Smith's father was a former Vol and
NFL player.
And there was more trouble for Tommy
Tuberville in Auburn on the heels of the bad publicity
received by the Tigers a few weeks ago regarding
excessively high grades given to players for taking
sociology and criminology courses. Tuberville suspended a
pair of linebackers, Tray Blackmon and Kevin Sears, for
alcohol-related incidents. Both were potential starters.
I blame the young men for their own stupidity,
but I also blame the recruiting system which emphasizes
size, speed and strength but none of the values that could
alter behavioral patterns and attitudes of the student-athlete.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Sorry about the hitting streak ending, but I
just couldn't see Simon Garfunkel changing the lyric to
"Where have you gone Chase Utley?"
2. No matter the explanation, it stinks to see a
player the caliber of Atlanta's Andruw Jones on the waiver
wire.
3. All is right at One Buc place with the
announcement that Ronde Barber has agreed to a new five-
year extension.
4. Why does it not surprise us upon hearing that
former Florida All-American and currently Eagles receiver
Jabar Gaffney was charged with unlawful possession of a
weapon?
5. Floyd Landis, you embarrass us all.
Short Stuff
I stand corrected by Punta Gorda's Steve
Rutherford about last week's note: It's DeAngelo Williams
of the University of Memphis, and not as I wrote it...
Giving them Ohio State at No. 1 and Texas at No. 2,1 I don't
agree with the USA Today Coaches Poll that ties Notre
Dame (tough schedule) and USC (overrated) at No. 3 and
Oklahoma (minus Bomar) at No. 5.
Nothing But 'Net
(With help of Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Bumper Sticker, Sign or T-shirt
1. You see three branches of government. I see
firewood.
2. Just another sexy short guy.
3. Stand up for your rights. If that doesn't
work, sit.
Today's Proverb
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the
unexpected the expected?.
And Good Morning
... John Madden. Congrats on your Hall of Fame
selection and BOOM!

American
Legionnaires'
News
With the World War II
veterans getting older, the
American Legion is looking to the
younger veterans to fill in the
ranks and continue the Legion
agenda. But the younger veterans
just aren't coming. Yet, the
Nation is at war, and our fighting
men and women are getting
injured. With the medical
expertise our military teams have,
many more G.I.s are coming home
alive. Many of these warriors are
in need of help. Help in getting
re-settled, getting back to work,
re-joining their families, and some
of these warriors have been
injured seriously, needing help in
even getting in and out of their
homes. The families of these
veterans may need help in re-
establishing their lives. The
different Veteran Service
Organizations, of which the
American Legion is the largest,
are doing what they can to help
these returning veterans, as well as
the veterans of America's previous
engagements. What the American
Legion needs is more veterans to
join with us to become a more
viable force for the American
veteran, and for our communities,
too. Won't you consider giving
some time to help those still
serving America and those that
have already served, to make their
lives a little easier?
Trenton's American Legion
Post 91 meets on the third
Thursday of the month for the
regular meeting. And this month
the Donation Dinner that starts at

PAUL RIDAUGHT,
SUPERVISOR OF DIXIE
COUNTY SOIL AND WATER
CONSERVATION DISTRICT:
Mr. Ridaught explained to the board
that he wanted to put up signs at the
county lines that read "Welcome to
Dixie Soil and Water Conservation
District." Mr. Ridaught asked the
board if it would be possible to add
this sign to the all ready existing
"Welcome to Dixie County" signs.
The Board of County
Commissioners was all in favor of Mr.
Ridaught's signs being added and the
permission was granted.
DAVID STILL. SUWANNEE
RIVER WATER MANAGEMENT:
A. Rural Subdivision
Mr. Still stated that land developers
are purchasing what used to be timber
tracts are using the old logging roads
to access the developed property.
The public will buy Florida Wetland
Property, put housing on this land, and
want all the services that the county
offers such as Emergency Services,
The Sheriffs department, School
Busses Etc.
The landowners will be told to build
up the roads to make them more
efficient to those who will be traveling
them. Also, the land developers
themselves will have to figure out who
will maintain these access roads.
Mr. Still expressed to the Board of
County Commissioners that these are
the same rules and conditions that they
have had since 1986. However, these
rules have not been strictly enforced in
the past but the SRWM will be heavily
enforcing these rules now. Marion
County MSBU, MSTU, has had a way


for the subdivision residents to pay for
the cost of improvements of the roads
in question so that the other tax payers
will not have to. This has been very
successful for Marion County in the
past and Mr. Still thinks that it will be
successful for Dixie County as well.
Mr. Still also stated that it doesn't
matter what acreage the parcel is, the
landowner must visit the SRWM
office.
Jim Vonstein asked Mr. Still how
hard it was to get the permits to
develop the roads.
Mr. Still's reply was that he had
never known for a road construction
permit to be denied. Still added that
when dealing with Wetland property,
the individual must go through
mitigation.
Mr. Still said that he is trying to get


SRWM maps to the land developers so
that they will know what they are
getting in to when building on these
timber tracts and Wetlands.
Commissioner Land asked Still how
far the laws of jurisdiction go inland
off the banks of the river. Still's reply
was that the laws of jurisdiction go all
the way to the flood plain.
Commissioner Lamb said that he
thought that a handout should be filed
in the permitting packets so that the
SRWM rules were outlined clearly to
those they apply to.
Attorney Lander asked Mr. Still if
the requirements applied to those who
are building condominiums. Still's
reply was that the condominium
builders must see the SRWM first
anyway.
Commissioner Lamb clarified that
his reasoning for inviting Mr. Still to
the Board Meeting was to ensure that
the correct information about the
SRWM rules were outlined so that
those whom they applied to could
follow the rules accordingly.
JERRY PRATER, VETERANS
SERVICE OFFICER:
A. Mr. Prater announced that
Warren McGill park was dedicated on
July 4"', 2006. However, the military
flags displayed were wrong and need
to be corrected on the monument.
B. Mr. Prater informed the Board
that the laptop computer that was
stolen from Washington DC VA
offices had been recovered. As far as
officials knew, there had been no files
taken off of the computer.
JACK SPIVEY, BUILDING
OFFICIAL:
Mr. Spivey presented the Board with
the Building and Zoning June Monthly
Report. The report shown that permits
were down for the month and the total
number of city permits to date was 53.
EMA SOLVA, CONCERNED
DIXIE COUNTY RESIDENT:
Mrs. Solva who resides at 185th
Avenue in Old Town told the Board

that her neighbor Judith Lang, whom
owns the driveway that everyone
shares to access their property, had
taken a concrete pad, broken it up into
pieces, and put in the middle of the
driveway. Mrs. Solva explained that
the rubble in the middle of the road
made it very difficult to drive on the
driveway. Her question to the Board
was could they do anything about the
rubble since the driveway was
privately owned?
Attorney Lander, stated that there
was nothing that the Board could do in
this particular situation due to the fact
that the road was not a county owned
road. The advice that was given to
Mrs. Solva was to get an attorney or to
call the Sheriffs office to see what
they may be able to do about the
situation.
LANCE BRASWELL. MAYO
INSURANCE:
Mr. Braswell explained to the board
that when getting a new insurance plan
there were only two options. One
being that they could open a public bid
and sift through boxes of paperwork.
Two being hiring an independent agent
to negotiate with the insurance
companies. Mr. Braswell asked the
board to consider him as the named
agent. He assured the Board that he
could not increase commission prices
but could only decrease them. Mr.
Braswell proposed that if he were to be
named agent and did not bring any
value to the table that he would
respectfully step down and let the
agent now, Craig, take over. Mr.
Braswell explained that he works for
an independent company and that is
how he has more leverage in
negotiation than that of a regular
insurance agent.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that he would like to invite Craig to the
next Board Meeting and give him a
chance to make some proposals. Also,
the Board could get some proposals
from Mr. Braswell and compare the
two.
Commissioner Valentine made the
motion to table to the next meeting on
July 20th. The motion was seconded
by Commissioner Land.
CHAD REED. CHIEF/
DIRECTOR EMERGENCY

the Emergency Medical Services June

B. Mr. Reed also presented the
Board with a letter of resignation from
Lieutenant Deborah Langford as well
as a reply to regretfully accept Ms.
Langford's letter from Mr. Reed
himself.
Commissioner Hays commented that
he would like to commend Ms.
Langford for her exceptional service
while on staff with Dixie EMS.
C. Mr. Reed presented a donation
letter and a copy of the donation check
in the amount of $2500.00 for Dixie
County's help in fighting the fires at
Hines.


D. Mr. Reed announced that the fire
academy school starts August 1't with
the first respond training. He also
extended his thanks for the continuing
support of the Fire Academy.
E. Mr. Reed asked the board for
their permission to use the old Red
Cross Building. The Board told Reed
that they had previously given the
Public Defender's Office permission to
use the building and that he would
have to check with them. Mr. Reed
told the Board that he had all ready
checked with the Public Defenders
Office and was told that they had
decided not to use the building. The
Board of County Commissioners told
Mr. Reed that his using the building
would be fine with them.
ARTHUR BELLOT. COUNTY
COORDINATOR:


A. Mr. Bellot introduced Mr. Paul
Ridaught to the Board. Mr. Ridaught
had been traveling down South to
spray herbicide. Mr. Bellot brought to
attention that there are many guardrails
in Dixie County that have been
overtaken by weeds. Mr. Ridaught
stated that he had previously driven to
look at the guardrails on Horseshoe
Beach Road, Jena, Hi-way 340, and a
guardrail located at Higginbotham
Store. To successfully get rid of the
weeds, the rails will have to be sprayed
two feet in front and four feet behind
them. This one spray will eliminate
having to spray multiple times a year
said Ridaught. Mr. Ridaught had

a solution to the grass and weeds
growing in many canals in Dixie
County that are limiting their flow.
Mr. Ridaught said that an aquatic
herbicide needed to be used for the
canals and that the cost of this
particular herbicide was $1000. Mr.
Ridaught assured the Board that he
was licensed in all areas of herbicides
and said he could start the jobs by July
15, 2006.
Mr. Ridaught brought to attention
that there was FEMA money that
could be used for the spraying of the
canals. Mr. Bellot stated that this
would fall under Mitigation and that
correct grants were applied in other
areas.
Commissioner Lamb commented
that he thought the County should go
ahead with what Mr. Ridaught has all
ready bid on and wait for the other.
Commissioner Hays stated that the
Board should give Mr. Bellot and Mr.
Howard Reed the permission to
oversee these projects as well as the
other ones to come in the future.
The motion to was made by
Commissioner Valentine and was
seconded by Commissioner Lamb.
B. Mr. Bellot told the Board that he
had received an E-Mail from the
Florida Wildlife Commission that
pertained to the boat ramp at Hinton
Landing. Mr. Bellot told how the E-
Mail stated that the boat ramp
belonged to FWC and it needed to be
open 24 hours a day for loading and
unloading.
Mr. Bellot told the Board that he had
written the FWC a reply that stated the
boat ramp was not theirs and if they
wanted it open 24 hours that was
something that they needed to speak to
the Board about.
C. Mr. Bellot announced to the
Board that the Road Department's
CAT 330 Excavator had torn up and
was beyond repair. He asked the
Board their opinion on a solution.
Mr. Bellot presented the Board with
information from John Deere and
CAT. This information included
suggested models, pricing, and
warranty information. The quote from
John Deere was $262,786 and from
CAT $278,934. Mr. Bellot reminded
the Board that if the option to buy a
new excavator were to arise that a loan
would have to be taken out. Mr. Bellot
stated that the John Deere model had a
longer reach as well as a 5 year, 7500
hour warranty.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
would like to do some research on the
warranty and extras himself to see
what he could come up with.
D. Mr. Bellot presented an E-Mail
he had received from Darabi &
Associates pertaining to the
Steinhatchee Water Agreement. The
agreement will be outlined as Dixie
County having all jurisdictions over
the plan. This including the right to
sever its relationship with Steinhatchee
water for their own utility under the
conditions that Dixie County gives 12
months notice to the Steinhatchee
water and Steinhatchee water shall
release all customers on Dixie County
all assets in Dixie County and refund

Dixie County Library roof.

repairs was made by Commissioner
Hays and was seconded by
Commissioner Valentine for the Dixie
County Library.
G. Mr. Bellot presented the Board of
Commissioners with the Tentative
budget for review. Chairman,
Driggers stated that looking at the
budget it looked like a real good start
to him.
Commissioner Hays suggested that a
position be opened for someone to
mow where the big mowers cannot
reach.
Mr. Bellot replied that a park
maintenance position was included in
the tentative budget as well as the
repairs on county road; Hollis
Chewning, Otis Brannin, and Rilla
Lord roads. Also There was road work
to be done on Shired Island Road. It
was suggested by the Board that
Asphalt Technologies be contacted for
advice on the repaving.

secured the option to move forward for
the boat ramp parking in Jena. He

around. The motion was seconded by
Commissioner Hays.
Mr. Lander commented that he had
the Steinhatchee Water Agreement
drafted and would present it to the
Board at the next meeting.
COMMISSIONER LAMB:
Commissioner Lamb proposed that
Anderson Park needed a no wake zone
by that boat ramp. However. Dixie
County needs to get with Levy County
on the no wake zone so that both
counties are in agreement.
Mr. Chad Reed volunteered to
contact Levy County on the No Wake
Zone idea.
The motion was made by
Commissioner Lamb and was
seconded by Commissioner Valentine
to get with Levy County for the mutual
agreement.
Commissioner stated that even
though the Shired Island Road would
be resurfaced soon, in the mean time


the pot holes needed to be filled. Mr.
Howard Reed stated that he was
working on that project right now.
COMMISSIONER CHAIRMAN.
JOHN L. DRIGGERS:

Log Cabin

Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 3rd at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
The quilt was put in and
quilting goes on. It is an
appliqued flower pattern and
will get lots of quilting on it.
Shirley Murphy has finished a
Double Irish Chain and
Autumn Leaves. She does
beautiful work on everything
she does. B.J. has finished two
baby quilts and Peggy
Williams has hemmed several
table clothes. There is always
so much to do and everyone
enjoys what it is they do.
Jarrod and 10 boys were
out on Tuesday and once when
we looked out several of them
were enjoying the gazebo they
built. We are hanging pictures
inside and have put posts
around the front of it to keep
driving from getting to close.
It was an enjoyable time
for Pat, her husband Al and I,
went to Camp Caruth and gave
the quilt to Mike, the Director:
It will be taken to Live Oak
later to be signed by Sheriffs
from all over Florida as well as
others connected with the
youth camps.
I think we will all be glad
to see cooler weather but we
all keep going and feel sorry
for some of the plants and
flowers. They will also be
glad for cooler weather. Lunch
was so good today. Cabbage,
fried okra, corn bread, biscuits,
spaghetti casserole, green
beans, macaroni salad,
cucumbers, deviled eggs, cake
and peaches. There were 13
members and 2 guests that
enjoyed this wonderful spread.,

Pictured at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Grand Opening of Hungry Howie's in Steinhatchee are: Ryan
Bell, owner; Doug Black; Jim Cottingham, contractor, cutting the ribbon, with friends and well-wishers.
Hungry Howie's Pizza & Subs celebrated the opening of their I t location in Steinhatchee on
Monday, June 12th. Steinhatchee, best known as one of the top places in the United States for catching
bay scallops, is a small, rustic fishing town.
Ryan Bell owner, chose a small town to grow his business after he ventured out on the water
fishing one day and saw how beautiful the area is. "I've been coming to Steinhatchee since I was a kid
and can't believe how much it has grown" said Bell.
Scouting the area he found a perfect location right on the water. How great it would be to have a
pizza place you can come to by boat or by car!! Renovations on a on a historical building began when
Ryan teamed with Jim Cottingham of North Florida General Contracting of Alachua.
With the idea of keeping the building rustic, since it was previously a fish camp long time ago,
most of the original wood was restored and the metal roof inside the building still remains.
It's a great place to bring the family. Waterfront dining on a beautiful deck, great Sunsets, boat
access, TV's inside and soon the restaurant will add video games for kids.
Hungry Howie's will also have entertainment on the deck a few weekends a month. Soft Rock,
smooth jazz, blues type bands will perform.

Springhouse Quilter's News


Mary Kay Lucas with one of the Stack and Whack quilts she
recently completed.
The Stack and Whack quilting workshop held during one of
the Nite Owls meetings has resulted in several members piecing
several stack and whack quilts. The method used to cut and piece
these quilts results in some of the most unusual and beautiful
quilts you can imagine. Mary Kay Lucas is one of the members
that has really been using her new-found knowledge to construct
these quilts. She has cut and pieced at least 3 of the tops and is
still searching for new fabric to cut and piece another one. It is
hard to build a stash of fabric when you work as fast as Mary
Kay.
Mary Rawlins will be showing her recently completed
flannel rag-jacket at the Springhouse Quilter's monthly meeting
this week. She stopped by the Suwannee Valley Quilt shop on
Friday and gave the staff and customers a sneak preview of the
jacket. It is a very useful and practical jacket and will be very
warm when cold weather arrives. It is a one-of-a-kind jacket and
is very attractive with the multi-colors used in making the jacket.
Springhouse members will be bringing one, ugly quilt block
to the meeting this month for assignment to a member to take the
block and convert it into a beautiful work of fabric-art.
This should be an interesting, creative and fun project.
A work crew, with Mr. Jeffrey Crawl as supervisor, from
Lancaster has been working to keep the Springhouse yard mowed
and the property looking beautiful. Springhouse Quilters
appreciate all of the work the work crew performs.
For additional information on Springhouse Quilters, contact
Anna Gilliam, 463-7922, or Lois Scott, 463 2207.

LEGAL NOTICE

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
CONSTRUCTION PERMIT


The Department of Environmental Protection
gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to
Dixie Waste Services, LLC., which has a
mailing address of Post Office Box 850,
Cross City, Florida 32628-0850. This project
is for the construction of a municipal waste
gasification/thermal oxidizer. The facility is
located at 322 NE 264th Street, Cross City,
Dixie County, Florida. The Department has
assigned file number 0290016-001-AC to this
project.

The Department will accept written comments
concerning the proposed permit issuance
action for a period of 14 (fourteen) days from
the date of publication of "PUBLIC NOTICE
OF INTENT TO ISSUE CONSTRUCTION
PERMIT." Written comments should be
provided to the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, Northeast District
Office at 7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B-
200, Jacksonville, Florida 32256-7590. Any
written comments filed shall be made
available for public inspection. If written
comments received result in a significant
change in the proposed agency action, the
Department shall revise the proposed permit
and require, if applicable, another Public
Notice.

A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting decision


may petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-3000. Petitions
filed by the permit applicant or any of the
parties listed below must be filed within
fourteen days of receipt of this notice of
intent. Petitions filed by any persons other
than those entitled to written notice under
section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes must
be filed within fourteen days of publication of
the public notice or within fourteen days of
receipt of this notice of intent, whichever
occurs first. Under section 120.60(3),
however, any person who asked the
Department for notice of agency action may
file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of
that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within
the appropriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 F.S., or to
intervene in this proceeding and participate
as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention
will be only at the approval of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with rule 28-106.205 of the
Florida Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, the 'name,
address, and telephone number of
the petitioner's representative, if any,
which shall be the address for service
purposes during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of
how the petitioner's substantial
interests will be affected by the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when
petitioner received notice of the
agency action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the agency to take
with respect to the agency's proposed
action.

A petition that does not dispute the material
facts upon which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise shall contain the same
information as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301.

Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the
Department's final action may be different
from the position taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the
Department on the application have the right
to become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements set forth
above.

The application is available for public
inspection during normal business hours,
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday, except legal holidays, at the
Department of Environmental Protection,
Northeast District Office, 7825 Baymeadows
Way, Suite B200, Jacksonville, Florida
32356-7590.

Varsity and J.V. Cheerleaders Attend Camp


Varsity Cheerleaders: il'f t, right Trilha tindh\ ron itirain,. bSthadra A lh ,r, Whol r jm irv,. Airy Hi odI ic iaptaina and tiniour, Jiliant Gt tIi % .tM 1,
Heather Jones (senior), Maddie Kelley (co-captain and senior), Brittany Jones (co-captain and senior), Jessica Johns (senior), Tania H1auser
(senior), Meredith Allen (senior), Elaine Standridge (senior), and Zan Raker (junior).
It may have looked like the ideal spot for a vacation, but the varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders of Dixie County High School can
tell you this was no vacation! On Sunday, July 23rd, the two squads traveled to Panama City Beach to attend the United Cheerleading
Camp held at the Edgewater Beach Resort. The first day was spent getting settled in and catching some rays because everybody knew
that the next day, all the hard work would begin.
At 1:00 pm classes began with line dancing and a game planning class while the coaches met with the camp concierge. Then the
work began in earnest with stunt and dance classes lasting until 4:30. There was a two hour break for dinner and then the home pomr
contest began in the Grand Palm Ballroom. The varsity squad would have to wait until the last day of camp to find out how they scored.
After the contest, there was private coaching on the sideline routines, a meeting with each squad's Big Brother/Big Sister and then at
9:00 they hit the pool for the pool party. All participants were back in their rooms by 10:00 pm.
The captains and co-captains of the squads met with the UCA head cheerleader at 8:00am and then joined the rest of the team for
warm-ups at 8:15am. From 8:30am to 10:15am, they participated in stunt and dance classes and then walked to the beach for a game
planning class and the bestowal of the spirit sticks. Lunch was from 11:45 to 2:30 and then, there were elective classes in elite stunts,
jumps, and the time-out dance. At 3:00, private coaching for the cheer and open practice for the Extreme Routine began and lasted until
dinner at 5:00. At 6:30 the cheer evaluations were completed, followed by the jump off with the two best jumpers from each squad
participating. The cheerleaders
then reviewed all the material
-. they had learned over the past
day and a half, met with their
Big Brothers/Big Sisters and
broke up at 8:15. Curfew was
11:00 pm.
The last full day of classes
began with a retro rally,
followed by the dance clinic
and partner stunts. During this
last class, Maddie Kelley, a
senior on the varsity squad and
a 4-year high school
cheerleader met with an
'" accident. With her stunt group
S. of Jillian Gee, Trisha
., Anderson, and Zan Raker, she
began working on a full down
dismount. Jillian is the flyer or

spot. The full down consists of the flyer executing one full twist in the air before landing in her
bases and back spot's arms. This was new to all the girls and Maddie got caught twice with an arm
to her nose, the second time breaking it. She and coach Kathy Driggers then spent the next few
hours in the emergency room at Gulf Coast Community Hospital. The verdict was that, if you had to
-have a broken nose, her broken nose was the one to have. It was a straight line fracture and although
she was expecting to have two beautiful shiners, the only outward sign was a little swelling and
some slightly dark circles under.her eyes the next morning. Maddie spent the rest of the day and the
next morning cheering on her teammates as they competed.
At 3-00 that afternoon, the teams were evaluated on the Xtreme Routine, followed by the All-
Star Try-outs. Dinner was at 5:15 and then the girls got ready for the Beach Party Luau which lasted
until 9:00 pm. Everyone was back in their rooms by curfew.
The final day saw the squads perform their cheer and the Xtreme Routine for final evaluations,
and then they participated in the Camp Champs contest. The J.V. took a second place trophy for
their interpretation of the cheer. In addition, they received another trophy for spirit plus three blue
ribbons and one red. Varsity received a trophy for being a superior squad, plus five blue ribbons,
one for their home pom routine. After eating lunch and filling up the cars, the caravan got back on
the road around 3:00 pm and arrived back home at 6:30, a very tired and satisfied group. This is the
fourth year that the girls have attended the Panama City Beach Cheer Camp and they are looking
forward to next summer and a return to the beach.

Our county is finally receiving some of those much needed and
appreciated rain showers. Even though August is traditionally a
wet month, you need to monitor your new plants and seedlingsso-
they get enough moisture to stay healthy.
First of all, August is a good month for pruning most perennials"
Trim those lanky branches on your plumbagos, lantana, jasmine,,
etc. This should be your last yearly trim on bougainvilleas 'to
enhance the best blooms and fullness. Crepe myrtles will love
you -if you trim off the already spend old seed pods (just the seed.
pods). This way they can be encouraged to bloom again.-
Landscape hedges and shrubs need trimming this month to keep
them under control too, however, topping our fruit trees is a little.
late.
Even though August can be a hot, humid month, citrus can still"
be planted and fertilized with good results. A general rule foir
fertilizers on citrus is about 1/4 lb. per inch of trunk diameter.
Toward the later part of the month, schedule your last time to
fertilize your scrubs and perennials before fall.
How about seed collecting? Great time to pinch off those special
annuals and seed pods, let them air dry, label them and store
them for next year. Mid-August is when the new batch of fresh
packaged seeds arrive in nursery centers in Florida. Make sure yo
read the expiration dates and buy only fresh seeds.
Speaking of seeds, the time is already here to put such goodies in-
the ground like peppers, "maters", eggplant, squash, pumpkin'rs-,
and watermelon. Most of the above take about 90 days to mature
under normal conditions.
Last but not least to be talked about are the "BUGS"! Many
people have asked about aphids, whiteflies, and spider mites. If
you are a concerned environmentalist, use any one of many oils.
available at your local nursery, the most gentle containing,
organic pyrethrins. Drastic measure and epidemics may call for a
triple action spray solution used with caution around pets an.d
livestock. As for the caterpillars that seem to be prolific this year,,.
allow me to give you food for thought. Some of the ugliest
caterpillars ever created become some of the most beautiful -
butterflies on earth. When you get really bummed out about ho6w~
hot it is in August or are looking for new books to read, go to the'
library and check out a book on identifying caterpillars and enjoy.:
the beautiful butter flies you help to nurture in your garden.
