By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This past Monday, August 21st, 2006 a traffic stop in the high

charges.

traveling 35mph in the posted 15mph school zone.
Tumlin issued Fitchett a speeding citation and before letting
him go asked if he had any guns, bombs, hand grenades, or any
illegal contraband such as drugs in his car. When he (Fitchett)
replied no, Tumlin then asked if he could search the vehicle.
Fitchett agreed. Sheriff's Deputy Jamie Davis and Deputy Mark
Garcia arrived on the scene and helped with the search.40
While looking through the back area of the car a semi
automatic hand gun was found in a back pack along with a plastic

Jerry Prater

So, who won?
Let us hypothesize that it's a football game, tied up late in the
fourth quarter. The game is called with seven minutes left on the
clock. So who won?
Few things can significantly delay a football game, and far
fewer things can cause one to be called off before it's over. That's
why I'm using the football analogy to illustrate a point relevant to
the situation in southern Lebanon, bearing in mind that football is
a rough game, but war is a lot rougher and it's not a game.
The Islamic terrorist organization known as Hezbollah and the
nation Israel have agreed to a cease-fire, the terms of which include
both sides pulling out of southern Lebanon and a contingent of UN
"peace-keepers" moving in to maintain order. Meanwhile, both
sides are claiming victory.
While neither side has won a decisive victory at this point, this
development clearly favors Hezbollah. Whereas Israel sustained
significant losses, they inflicted considerably more on the terrorists.
Militarily, this is a logical point at which to push forward, not to
withdraw.
This clearly works to Hezbollah's advantage. Israel pulls out of
the disputed territory, while Hezbollah does not. That's right.
Hezbollah is indistinguishable from Lebanon's civilian population.
They are well represented in that nation's government, and any
Lebanese military force that eventually shows up in the disputed
territory will be well-represented by Hezbollah personnel, if not
actually under their command.
Meanwhile, the Hezbollah terrorists will have a "breather" (act-
ually, as much time as they need) during which they will be re-
supplied by Iran and Syria with weaponry made in Russia and
China. And the ranks of their personnel will be replenished by
new recruits from .Islamic nations and splinter groups throughout
the Middle East--and maybe even some volunteers from western
Europe and the United States.
While all this is going on, the United Nations (as in united
against the civilized world) will put together a contingent of blue
helmeted reluctant warriors to sustain a "visibility" in the region
while things cool off, and no doubt the good ol' USA will be
footing most of the bill for this charade.
Later on (how much later is anybody's guess, but don't think it
ain't gonna happen), a reinforced Hezbollah will provoke another
confrontation with Israel, and it will be (as succinctly put by
syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer) "dedj vu all over
again."
And once again, the "International Community" will pressure
Israel to withdraw its troops, buy into yet another meaningless
resolution, perhaps yield even more of its diminishing real estate to
its sworn enemies, and apologize for defending itself
Unfortunately, this is how international diplomacy works these
days; and it's working, not just against Israel, but against Western
Civilization. Hopefully, one of these days our leaders will wake up
to this fact before it's too late.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
It has come to my attention that I am not alone with having
faults in my life; I realize that no one is perfect and we all one day
will be held accountable! With that being said, I would first like to
apologize to everyone that I may have hurt in my life, it has never
been intentional. I am sincerely sorry! TODAY, I had my eyes
opened! I took part in a conversation that upset me dearly! At the
time I was upset at how someone could be so deceitful for personal
gain. Later, I realized I was just as much to blame for the part I
played in this conversation. We all need to wake up and realize
that we should be uplifting one another, not tearing others down. It
TRULY is a fault that we all as a small town community all need
to work on. Rumors destroy peoples' lives; it can go as far as
ruining someone's chance for a fair shot at something they have
earned and deserve. With Dixie County's elections right around the
comer, I felt these issues need to be made aware of, NOW! There
are numerous UNTRUE rumors surfacing and being spread about
many of our candidates.
As I see it, this should be a political campaign not a personal
one! Every one of us has made mistakes or has a family member
that has not always acted accordingly.
Political candidates should not become the target of such
slanderous gestures. "Perhaps the role our candidates played in our
community before elections began should be taken into
consideration. What qualifications and/or former job performances
does each candidate really have to offer to better our community?"
Just because someone is your relation doesn't necessarily make
he/she the best person for the job. Please, please... do not let
something you've heard... alter your decision at the polls. I realize
it's easier and maybe even more entertaining to believe what
you've heard but for goodness sake, don't repeat it! Set an
example! As a community we can be better than that. Just
remember Rumors are about real people who have families.
There's so much tension in our courthouse you could cut it with an
old timer. This has got to stop. Someone has to fill these important
political positions and we should respect ALL the candidates for
taking on such responsibilities.
Sincerely,
Rebecca Sweeney
("Rebecca's Clothing and Gifts")


Letter To The

Editor
Gore and the Internet
Mr. Prater,
You and your Right-wing
friends need to be a little more
honest or better infonnrmed. Al
Gore never said he invented
the Internet and I'm sure you
know that. What he said was "
During my service in the
United States Congress, I took
the initiative in creating the
Internet." which was a true
statement.
Vincent Cerf, who's been
called the Father of the
Internet, said The Internet
would not be where it is in the
United States without the
support given to it and related
research areas by the Vice
President in his current role
and in his earlier role as
Senator. The inventor of the
Mosair Browser, Marc
Andreesen, credit Gore with
making his work possible.
Joseph Traub, a computer
science professor at Columbia
University, claims that Gore "
was perhaps the first political
leader to grasp the importance
of networking the country.
Could we perhaps see a end to
cheap shots from politicians
and pundits about inventing
the Internet?' I could go on and
on, but why bother, because
I'm sure you and your
politician friends will go
misstating the facts.

Be patient with everyone,
but above all with your-
self. I mean, do not be dis-
heartened by your imper-
fections, but always rise
up with fresh courage.
How are we to be patient
in dealing with our
neighbor's faults if we are
impatient in dealing with
our own? He who is fret-
ted by his own failings
will not correct them. All
profitable correction
comes from a calm,
peaceful mind.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Friends,
Last year, Hurricane Katrina left the U.S. in shock and the
stories and statistics have literally filled the media since. Far too
little has been said about the heroic contributions made in the
critical days and weeks following this disaster by the incredible
efforts of the men and women who wear fish and game uniforms.
On 8/30/06 at 4:00 PM and 9/2/06 at 10:00 PM (both Eastern
times) The Outdoor Channel's "Fish and Wildlife Journal" will
air a special that documents the contributions of the agencies and
the agency personnel who helped get the gulf coast states through
the very worst of the disaster and back on the road to recovering
and healing from the devastation.
We hope this program will contribute in some small way to
both recognizing the dedication and professionalism of the people
who reported for duty during that trying and dangerous time...and
extending some degree of gratitude from the outdoor community
for their service.
As with other efforts to tell this story, there simply wasn't
enough time or material to tell- the complete story, but we have
done our best to recognize these extraordinary efforts to help in a
time of dire need.
We thank them for being there...and for caring enough to
serve.
As your schedules and outlets permit, we hope you will let
your audience know about the show. It's something they should
watch.
Best regards,
Chris Chaffin
Executive Producer, "Fish & Wildlife Journal"

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLOHIUA I nurn-UAY, AUGUST 24, 2006


"CULTURAL CENTER"
Continued from page 1

The Dixie County Historical Society, directed by local genealogist Evonne Cline, gained possession of the property in 1999 with the
intent to save one of Dixie's few historical buildings that remain. It took until 2001 for grant monies to be made available for the
project. Cline was instrumental in getting the six grants that amounted to $344,000.00, as well as enlist the help of volunteers and
outside resources such as the Cross City Correctional Institute. "It has been a long, hard road," stated Cline. "But just look at the
results!"
General Contractor for the renovation project was Overland
Construction, Inc. who used local contractors for the job. David
Lake Electric of Old Town installed new wiring throughout the f
building, surpassing code. Dixie Appliance worked on the air .
conditioning units and Badcock's and More of Cross City, were
contracted for the carpet. "Of course we can not say enough about
the Cross City Correctional Institute for the countless number of
hours that the inmates spent cleaning, plastering and painting,"
Cline added. --
The historical building has been open to the public throughout
the renovation process. The Historical Society has already set up
an office there in order for Cline to be able to supervise the project ,
and so that residents could witness the transformation back in time
themselves. O
The Cultural Center will also house the Bessie Odlund
Sheppard Museum. Cabinets in the museum were designed by ,
Wayne Hurst with the fabrication by Cross City Correctional I ..
Institute inmates. The lumber for the cabinets was donated by I
Florida Forest Products and the glass by Spurgeon Cheek.
Currently the Center is looking for donations for the museum with
items that helped form Dixie County. From the top stair in the entrance of the old school are DCHS
Located upstairs is the Wilbur Long Archive Room and Principal Buddy Scholfield, School Board Member Glen Osteen and
Genealogy Room. Attached to the old two story building is the Superintendent of Schools Dennis Bennett.
Mary Chavous Anderson Auditorium which has been used as a
meeting place for the Historical Society and recently as a meeting place for the new Dixie County High Principal, Buddy Schofield
along with Superintendent of Schools Dennis Bennett and School Board member Glen Osteen. The meeting was held to discuss Mr.
Schofield's priorities and goals for the continued progress towards excellence at DCHS.

Mr. Schofield was invited by the Historical Society to help raise public awareness of the facility. How appropriate, to hold the
Center's first meeting for a school function!
"Now is the time for the community to come out and support the Center," stated Cline. "We are currently seeking monetary
donations that will allow it to continue to operate," she added. She noted that each month an electric bill will need to be paid as well the
usual upkeep and maintenance and security for the facility.
For those who help support the Center, their names will be placed on a plaque that will be on permanent display. The three levels of
recognition are: Oak Level-a donation of $100 or more; Pine Level-a donation of $250 or more; and the Cypress Level- a donation of
$500 or more. Of course any donation will be gratefully accepted. Members are also needed for the Historical Society. You can contact
Cindy Chewning-Museum Chairperson at 542-0594 or Dana Cannon Johnson-Secretary 498-7677 for information on how you can
become a part of keeping Dixie's rich history alive!

Dixie County Beach Advisory
The Dixie County Health Department is issuing an advisory for Shired Island recommending against
swimming and other contacts with beach water at this location. This advisory is based on beach water sampling
and analysis conducted on 08/14/06. The beach water quality results do not meet the criteria for bacteria levels
recommended by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Test Results Table


Sample Date Beach Fecal Water Enterococci Water Quality

Five Week 139.61 Advisory
Mean Exceeded

The Dixie County Health Department began conducting coastal beach water quality weekly monitoring at
Shired Island August of 2000 as a part of the Florida Healthy Beaches Water Quality Program. The water
samples are analyzed for enteric bacteria (both fecal coliform and enterococci) that normally are found in the
intestinal tract of humans, animals, and may come from stormwater runoff, pets, wildlife, or human sewage.
Contact with or swallowing of these pollutants may cause human illnesses or rashes, particularly for people who
usually get sick. Exposure to the beach water may cause diarrhea or infections of eyes, nose, throat, or skin.
Water quality categorizations are based upon:
(1) Florida Department of Environmental Protection's adopted Criteria for Surface Water Quality
Classification (Chapter 62-302.530, Florida Administrative Code).
Florida Healthy Beaches Program Categories
Good = 0-199 Fecal coliform per 100 milliliters of marine water
Moderate = 200-799 Fecal coliform per 100 milliliters of marine w t
Poor = 800 or more Fecal coliform per 100 milliliters of marine water
(2) United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) recommended criteria.
Florida Healthy Beaches Program Categories
Good = 0-34 Enterococci per 100 milliliters of marine water
Moderate = 35-103 Enterococci per 100 milliliters of marine water
Poor = 104 or more Enterococci per 100 milliliters of marine water
The EPA recommends an "Advisory" be issued when the enterococci level is alie the 104 colony forming
units per 100 milliliters of water sampled for marine waters. A fecal coliform level above a count of 400, as
indicated in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's adopted Criteria for Surface Water Quality
Classification, indicates that a warning is to be issued.
The Dixie County Health Department is not aware of any infections caused by swimming or wading in
beach water at this location. We have become aware of the possible risk as a result of the implementation of the
Health Beaches Water Quality Program.
Testing of the beaches is ongoing (weekly) and changes to the status of the water quality will be updated as
results become available. Additional information can be found on our Internet web sites: www.doh.state.fl.us.

Department at (352) 498-1360 extension 113.

Commissioner Hoyt J "Buddy" Lamb
Chosen To Chair Florida Association
Of Counties Rural
Caucus -
The Florida Association of -
Counties (FAC) held its
Annual Conference and Board
of Directors Meeting this past
June in Marco Island.
During this conference,
Commissioner Lamb was
appointed to assume the role of
Chairman of the Rural Caucus
by incoming FAC President -
Susan Latvala, Commissioner
from Pinellas County.
President Latvala stated that
besides overseeing the Rural
Caucus Meeting, Commissioner Hoy
Commissioner Lamb's role "Buddy" Lamb
would also include working
with the FAC Executive Committee and general membership to
develop Legislative Policies for the 2007 session. He will work
with the FAC's lobbying team during Legislative Committee
meetings and sessions on issues affecting County Government.
Prior to and during session, Commissioner Lamb will be meeting
with key Legislators on FAC's Legislative priorities and will be
participating in the Commissioners Grassroots Program.
The FAC represents the interests of Florida's counties through
legislative, professional development and pubic education
programs. The rural Caucus Committee is designed for issues
affecting counties under 75,000 in population. Among Florida's 67
counties, nearly half are small counties with populations under
75,000. As such, they face unique challenges.
Earlier this year the Small County Coalition held its annual
business meeting in Tallahassee. During this meeting,
Commissioner Lamb was voted on and elected by fellow
Commissioners from around the state to serve in the capacity as
Vice-Chairman of the Coalition for a two year term. Similar to the
FAC Rural Caucus, the Small County Coalition represents a group
of 36 counties across the state, similar to Dixie County in size. The
Small County Coalition has been in existence for years and was
formed to help address the needs of small counties and to lobby for
legislation to support those needs.
Commissioner Lamb stated he considers it a privilege to take
on the added responsibilities because it gives us an insight to the
state government and pending legislation that directly affects Dixie
County.

The Word Made

Flesh
Mark, Number, and Name of the
Beast
Continued from last week. I, the son
of man, say the devil was called a
beast before he was ever called a
serpent. The devil is the same today
as he was in Genesis. He has the
same ability to put his seed in you as
he did to Eve back there in the
Garden of Eden when she deceived
the whole world. Sin came into the
picture through disobedience and this
brought transgression. The reason
for these remarks is that we must
understand this man fell because of
Satan's lies. Satan spoke words with
intent to deceive Eve, and she fell for
his spiritual words of promise. She
didn't realize that she could not be
disobedient to God's law and still be
like God. This took her away from
God, and by transgression fell. The
man listened to his wife and fell with
her. I, the son of man, say notice the
coming in of the power of death
conquering the human race. This is
where the CARNAL MARK came
into the human race, and only the
TRUE GRACE of Jesus Christ can
deliver us from this MARK. The
enemy (the devil), which was already
here on and in the earth, was here to
entice this woman. You have heard
it said the reason he enticed the
woman instead of the man was
because she was the weaker vessel.
But, we will look at the fact of it.
Satan approached this woman
knowing that she was the conceiving
side of the flesh of Adam. I, the son
of man, say the multiplying of the
human race was to come through this
woman. It couldn't come any other
way. Eve was to be called, THE
MOTHER OF ALL LIVING.
(Genesis 3:20) It was at this time, he
injected into this woman his own
venom (seed), being beastly and
subtle. Listen to him speak unto this
woman who was drawn away from
God's commandment. "...Ye shall
not surely die: for God doth know
that in the day you eat thereof, then
your eyes shall be opened, and ye
shall be as gods, knowing good and
evil." (Genesis 3:4-5) I, the son of
man, say listen to the devil's word,
for God doth know that in the day
you eat thereof, ye shall be as gods.
(Genesis 3:5) This tree that sat in the
midst of the Garden awakened her to
what good was and what evil was.
Up until that time, she did not know
the difference between the two. This
is what gets you into trouble. If you
didn't know the difference between
good and evil, God might have
mercy on you. If you do know the
difference, then follow that which is
good and stay away from the evil.

Dear Readers,
It's been a year since my daughter was killed. No one will ever
know the heartache that a family will go through unless that
heartache has happened to them. Not a day goes by without tears
falling from my eyes whishing she was here. Also, you have the
financial strain of burying your loved one and the medical bills that
will take you a lifetime to pay. I know she's in a better place with
the Lord and I know the heartache will continue for the rest of our
lives until we meet again in heaven. We miss you and love you
Candace Dawn Veach. So, thank the Lord for each day and hope
that he blesses you with tomorrow. Tell your loved ones how
much you love them each and every time you see them. You will
forever be loved and missed.
Love,
Your Family

New Prospect Baptist News
Saturday evening, we had a great time at our "Oldie Goldie"
Banquet, held in honor of the senior citizens of New Prospect. The
program included a Country/Western theme, good food and
fellowship, and talented entertainment. Many attendees dressed in
Country/Western attire for the occasion, and one, decked out with
conches and a huge sombrero, appeared to have come all the way
from "Old Mexico" to visit with us, play the drums a little, and try
some of our good Southern cooking. We really appreciate the
efforts of all those who worked on getting the banquet together,
and we thank God for our seniors.
Sunday, it was a joy to be back in church, as our choir and Bro.
Billy did their usual fine jobs in their respective fields, the latter
delivering God's timely messages from Romans 3:23-24 and
Philippians 4:13 during morning and evening services,
respectively. During the morning service, we were blessed with a
special song by our own quartet, comprised of Tracey, Kelly, April
and Aimee. Excellent job, girls!
On Monday, Aug. 28, our Ladies' Ministry will have their
monthly meeting.
As usual, please keep the prayers going for those on the various
church prayer lists, our military personnel, our President and other
leaders, and the precarious situation in the Middle East. Have a
good week, and remember, you're always welcome to visit and
fellowship with us at New Prospect! May God bless and keep
you.
BEHOLD THE TABERNACLE OF GOD
Continued from last week. I the Day of the Lord, say God is
making in Himself of twain one new man-"for to make IN
HIMSELF of twain one new man, so making peace-and that HE
might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross... and
came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them
that were nigh." (Eph 2:15-17) I the Day of the Lord, say, "Do
you feel you are a dual personality? A life within that is after the
Spirit and a life without after the flesh?" IN CHRIST, He take
them and makes of twain one new man, all after the Spirit, thus
making peace. And how is it done in HIM? BY THE CROSS,
which works that death to the old nature, and thus by our
conformity to the death of HIS SON, we find we are reconciled to
God in an experimental way. "BY HIM to reconcile all things
unto himself." (Col. 1:20) I the Day of the Lord, say the word
"unto" in this case is the Greek word "eis" and it should be
"INTO." HE IS CHANGING THOROUGHLY ALL THINGS
INTO HIMSELF, for "out of Him, and through Him, and INTO
Him, are all things: to Whom be glory forever." (Romans 11:36),
ALL THINGS therefore are to be brought back into Him-and what
is God? He is LIFE, LIGHT, LOVE, SPIRIT and FIRE. This
gross materialism is temporal, and everything will know the
fullness of fire, thoroughly purged and brought into a state where
no corruption can exist. But consider just three of these-life, light
and love. I the Day of the Lord, say ALL THINGS are to be
brought into His life. "IN Him was life..." (John 1:4). "He that
hath the Son hath life..." (1 John 5:12.) This means them that as
ultimately everything is brought into Christ, and He IS LIFE, then
all death is abolished. And when "the last enemy, death, shall be
destroyed" (1 Cor. 15:26) it is self-evident that none remains.
"And there shall be no more death."(Rev. 21:4) I the Day of the
Lord, say ALL THINGS are to be brought into His light." This
then is the message, which we have heard of Him, and declare unto
you, that GOD IS LIGHT, and in Him is no darkness at all. (1
John 1:5) If all things have been brought back into light, then
darkness has been dissipated into the nothingness from which it
came. As "the darkness is passing, and the true light now shineth."
(1 John 2:8) We are in a transition process as "every man in his
own order" (1 Cor. 15:23) is brought into the light. I the Day of
the Lord, say the path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth
more and more unto the perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18) Continued
next week. Rev 21:3

Relief For
Gopher
Tortoises As

FWC Changes
Policy
Relief For Gopher
Tortoises As FWC Changes
Policy
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) Executive Director Ken
Haddad approved substantial
changes to the agency's
permitting guidelines to reduce
the number of gopher tortoises
lost through development.
Effective Tuesday, Aug. 15,
the FWC no longer requires
mandatory testing for upper
respiratory tract disease
(URTD) when relocating
gopher tortoises off
development sites.
"FWC staff and
stakeholders agree we will
improve conservation benefits
for gopher tortoises by
removing the current URTD
testing practices associated
with tortoise relocation,"
Haddad said. "Our goal is to
encourage people to relocate
gopher tortoises, and reduce
the number of tortoises lost on
incidental take sites."
Previously, anyone wishing
to build on property occupied
by gopher tortoises was
required to test them for
URTD before relocating them
off-site. A positive test of
even one gopher tortoise left
only two alternatives: on-site
relocation or incidental take
permitting. FWC scientists
said the testing requirement
hampered relocation efforts
that are important to species
recovery.
In May, the FWC eased
relocation requirements by.
extending the distance tortoises
could be relocated from 50 to
100 miles north or south of a
development site. The move
gave homeowners, developers
and consultants more options
to save gopher tortoises
threatened by development.
FWC scientists are creating
a statewide management plan
for gopher tortoises to include
a new permitting program. If
FWC Commissioners approve
it in June 2007, the gopher
tortoise will move from a
"species of special concern" to
"threatened" on the state's
imperiled species list. For

Wildfire Threat Remains Due To Shortage Of


Summer Rain
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson said today
that despite intermittent rain this summer,
showers have not come with sufficient
frequency to ease the wildfire threat. As a
result, Floridians need to remain cautious with
all outdoor fires.

"The summer rainy season has been
unusual and has not developed like we had
hoped." Bronson said. "Normally, we would be
out of wildfire danger by now."

The KBDI or Keetch-Byram Drought Index
is a way that scientists measure the amount of
moisture in the upper 36 inches of the soil.
Readings are given on a scale of 0 (saturated
soil) to 800 (desert-like conditions). High
values of the KBDI mean that conditions are
favorable for the occurrence and spread of
wildfires.

Special-Opportunity Spri
Applications Available
Special-opportunity spring turkey hunt
applications, for the 2007 season, are now
available from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
To apply, hunters can obtain applications
at MyFWC.com and at all FWC regional
offices. Applications will be accepted at
MyFWC.com, county tax collectors' offices or
at any license agent beginning 10 a.m. (EDT)
Sept. 12 and must be received by midnight
Oct. 17. A random drawing decides who will
receive the coveted permits.
Demand for these hunts is typically
greater than the number of available permits,
but hunters can increase their chances of being
selected by submitting as many $5
nonrefundable applications as they like.
Successful applicants pay an additional $50 -
$175, depending on the special-opportunity
hunt area selected.
DCHS


There is more logic in
humor than in anything
else. Because, you see,
humor is truth.
-Victor Borge


Typically in August, the KBDI registers in
the 100 to 200 range. The current statewide
average KBDI reading of 442, which is more
typical of late spring when wildfire danger is
high, is testimony to lack of adequate summer
rainfall.
Bronson is concerned that under these
conditions, the residual debris in forests from
recent hurricanes and tropical storms will fuel
bigger and more destructive wildfires.
"Until we get more rainfall and more
widespread rainfall, the large amount of
uprooted or dead and dying trees and shrubs
will make conditions very dangerous for our
wildland firefighters," Bronson said.
Florida averages about 5,000 wildfires each
year. Since January 1, 2006, 4,195 wildfires
have burned 214,646.2 acres and destroyed 43
homes and 164 other structures. Meanwhile,
thousands of homes and other structures have
been saved as a result of the efforts of
firefighters.

ng Turkey Hunt


Participation rules limit out-of-state
hunters to one permit per hunt.
These special hunts have been created for
sportsmen looking to take an Osceola, the
"crown jewel" of the turkey hunters' Grand
Slam. The FWC designs special-opportunity
turkey hunts to take place on large tracts of
land, with great habitat, healthy turkey
populations and with a limited number of
hunters.
The Osceola is a highly prized subspecies
of wild turkey, which occurs only in peninsular
Florida, and can be found south of, and
including Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union.
Bradford, Clay and Duval counties. All hunts
take place within the Osceola turkey's range.
For more information on special-
opportunity Osceola turkey hunts, visit

Sturgeon Strike Injures Two
A jumping sturgeon on the Suwannee
River injured two boaters Saturday afternoon
near Sun Springs on the border of Gilchrist and
Levy counties.
Cheyenne Russ, 9, and another female
passenger, both of Lake City, were struck by
the fish.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Officer Dorvan Daniel
witnessed the strike.
"I saw this vessel, operated by Scott
Lockwood of Lake City, coming toward me at
about 30 miles per hour. 1 watched as the fish
jumped out of the water and heard the impact
when it hit. The child was knocked out of the
boat and into the water," Daniel said. "The
boat stopped immediately and I began shouting
at the operator to get the little girl. She was
treading water and screaming for help."
The people on board pulled the child
onto the vessel and brought her to Daniel.
"1 had a first aid kit on board my boat
and began treating her. We got Lockwood's
vessel over to a nearby boat ramp and met up
with Levy County Emergency Medical
Services. Another person on board also had
been struck by the fish and suffered a broken
arnn," Daniel said.
Both boaters were transported to
Shands Hospital in Gainesville.


Lake City Residents
The group put into the Suwannee at'
Sandy Point and had been on the river about 45.
minutes when the strike occurred. Sun Springs,
also known as Aiken Springs, is about six
miles north of the town of Wilcox.
Prior to this incident, FWC officials
had begun working on a public awareness
campaign to alert boaters to the risks of
jumping sturgeons.
"We are preparing to post signs along the
Suwannee at each boat ramp, explaining the
risk of impacts with these fish," said Maj.
Bruce Hamlin, regional commander for FWC's
North Central Region. "Boaters have been
seriously injured when hit by these fish. This is
the sixth reported sturgeon strike this summer.
We want to make the public aware that these
fish are in the Suwannee and they do jump. We
recommend boaters reduce their speed to
reduce the risk of impact."
Biologists are unsure as to why
sturgeon jump. The fish winter in the Gulf of
Mexico and enter the Suwannee in the summer
and fall months to spawn. They can grow to 8
feet in length and weigh up to 200 pounds.
Sturgeon are a protected species and cannot be
harvested.
To report sturgeon collisions, call 1-
888-404-FWCC (3922).

The Buddy Show
by Buddy fMarin

The PGA: Golf at its best
Though considered by some the stepchild
and the "off-grand" of the majors, the PGA
Championship's ingenious marquee pairing in
the round produced a buzz about golf that hasn't
been felt since Tiger Woods was about to go
Grand Slam.


This was golf at its best: Masters
winner Phil Mickelson, U. S. Open champ Geoff
Ogilvy and British Open winner Woods playing
together the first 36 holes and putting on a clinic
at Medinah. Good shots, bad shots, brilliant
strategy, bad strategy, one-upmanship, grinders
and blinders and even a little bit of Chicago-Style fan
involvement.
It was shades of Steve Bartman, as a fan in the
gallery swatted one of Tiger's shots back in play at No. 1,
causing Woods to quip: "It's nice to have Shaq out there

Ogivly liked his stealth role, saying "It's like
public speaking in front of 20 people is quite an awkward
thing to do. Public speaking in front of 1,000 people is fine
because it's all just a blur. There's just so much craziness
and background noise and stuff going on. But it's just kind
of a big blur in the background."
The three of them were a whopping 18 under
combined for the first two rounds, with Woods and Ogilvy
both -7. Mickelson was -4 through the first 26.
This sets up a Super Sunday for golf in its
finale before football season.

of defensive back Steve Tannen (1967-69) as the 15th

High School Jamboree



Game Starts Football



Season for the Bears


Number 1, Jerrell Tyson brings down a Trenton Tiger in last week's Jamboree game.


By John Kelley
DCHS football fans were not
disappointed Friday night as the Bears opened
their season with a 6 to 2 win over the
Trenton Tigers. The Bears played two
quarters against the Tigers in the jamboree
game and scored early in the first quarter as
Quarterback Osteen handed off to Rodney
Scott, on the Bears' second possession. Scott
ran away from the Tiger defense on a 70-yard
touchdown sprint and dove into the end zone
for a touchdown. The Tigers scored their only
points from a Dixie County safety, late in the
first quarter. The Bears forced the Tigers into
multiple fumbles during the last quarter of
play which resulted in the Bears holding the

JV Bears Just Short of Win
By John Kelley
The DCHS JV Bears fell just short of a
win over the Trenton Tigers by about two
yards Friday night. :In the last seconds of the
game, on a' dazzling reverse play, Markell
Harris was forced out of bounds by the Tiger
defense to stop the Bears from scoring and
winning their opening game. Overall the JV
team looked good and played hard against the
Tigers, but the last quarter was the tell-tale
story as the Bears pick up the play and began
to get into the game. The JV Bears held
possession of the ball for most of the game
holding the Tigers to only three first downs.
The Bears will have to work on their pass
coverage though to be more effective against
teams that have a good aerial game. Steve


Tiger's offense short of any hope in scoring.
In the post game huddle Coach
Wilkerson told the team they needed to work
harder to be ready for the Chiefland Indians
this week. "The Indians are looking to win
here, but we won't let it happen." Wilkerson
said, "the team will be working on
conditioning and communication during this
weeks practice. He also commented that we
will see the Bears passing more this year than
last year."
The Bears looked pretty good Friday
night and with a tough year in front of the
team, DCHS football fans will have plenty of
action to look forward to. GO BIG RED!

at the Jamboree Game

Godbolt for the Bears scored on a handoff
from Quarterback Cord Hart. He also ran in
the extra point. The final score was 13 to 8
with the Tigers just holding on to the victory.
Coach Hope said the team shows a lot of
promise. They will concentrate on tackling
and work on holding on to the ball during this
week's practice. Hope commented that the
team was a little excited on their first game
but towards the end they started to settle
down. "We needed to get into the game
mentally, but everyone did a good job and I
am proud of everyone," he told the boys after
the game.
Good luck JV team and GO BEARS!

Health
Awareness
Fungus Infects Up
To 70 Million Feet!
(NAPS)-Warm weather
means fun in the sun and
showing off your feet.
However, many Americans
are embarrassed by their toes
because they suffer from toe-
nail fungus, or onychomyco-
sis. Although it is one of the
most common podiatric con-
ditions, onychomycosis can
become a serious infection
when it goes untreated.
It has been estimated that
60 percent of Americans 55
or older have toenail fungus
and 20 percent of those
between the ages 30 and 45
have at least one infected nail.
The risk of an untreated local
infection becoming a systemic
problem can be life threat-
ening. People with diabetes
and smokers are most vul-
nerable to fungal nail infec-
tions. Other risk factors for
onychomycosis include nail
trauma, poor hygiene and
aging.
Fortunately, there's a podi-
atrist-recommnended treatment
that kills the germs that cause
fiungal infections that can lead
to onychomycosis. With non-
prescription Mycocide NS, you
can treat fungus infections
without removing nail polish
or acrylic nails. You can find
the product in the foot care
section at any drugstore or
major retailer.

I Barbara Dawicke Appointed Third Circuit

Trial Court Administrator
Chief Judge Julian Collins today announced the appointment
of Barbara L. Dawicke of Gainesville as the new Trial Court ,
Administrator for the Third Judicial Circuit, which consists of
Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and
Taylor Counties.
"It is difficult to say in a few words what the Court
Administrator does," said Collins, "but basically she and her staff
are the behind-the-scenes people who make the court system ;
work. The Court Administrator works closely with the Chief
Judge on the development of the Circuit's budget, policies, and
programs, and acts as the Circuit's liaison to local and statewide
committees. Additionally, the Court Administrator and her staff
are responsible for implementing the Circuit's court programs,
managing the judicial and courtroom schedules, supervising
court reporting, providing court interpreters when needed, and Barbara Dawicke
coordinating and cooperating with clerks of court, judicial
assistants, and security personnel. Court Administration is also responsible for maintaining trial
court statistics and compiling reports for the State; ensuring effective technological support for our
courts-and on and on. With the 2004 switchover of the funding of the State court system from
counties to the state, the role of the Court Administrator has become increasingly crucial to the
efficient functioning of our court system."
Ms. Dawicke brings to this position her extensive knowledge of court management and
operations, knowledge derived from her legal training and experience. She holds a law degree from
the University of Florida and, just prior to this appointment, served in the Eighth Judicial Circuit for
two years as a staff attorney and six years as a senior manager in court operations. Before that, she
was a practicing attorney with Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, a biological scientist, and a volunteer
with the Peace Corps in central Africa.
"Ms. Dawicke was chosen by a consensus of all the judges in this circuit from a group of well-
qualified applicants after two full days of interviews," Judge Collins noted. "We are all looking
forward to working with her." Ms. Dawicke will take office in the Columbia County Courthouse on
August 21st. She can be reached at (386) 719-2163.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 2006


STUDENT PROGRESSION REPORT
Section 1008.25(8)(b), Florida Statues, requires school districts to publish in the local
newspaper an annual report presenting the state's requirements for student progression in public
schools, the district school board's policy and procedures on student retention and promotion, and
student performance information by September 1, 2006.
The state requires that each student's progression from one grade to another be determined, in
part, upon proficiency in reading, writing, science, and mathematics. Each student and parent must
be informed of the student's academic progress. It is also a requirement that each school board
establish a comprehensive program for student progression which shall be based upon an evaluation
of each student in a curriculum which covers the Sunshine State Standards and grade level
expectations and complies with state law.
The School board of Dixie County has established a Student Progression Plan in accordance
with section 1008.25, Florida Statue. Student progression is based on evaluation of each student's
achievement on established Sunshine State Standards provided by the state. Students who are
achieving below district or state standards in reading, writing, mathematics and/or science will be
identified and given remedial instruction as needed. Third grade students who score Level 1 in
Reading on the Grade 3 FCAT will be retained unless they meet one of the six good cause
exemptions. A copy of the School Board's policies and procedures related to student promotion and
retention may be obtained from Anderson Elementary School, Old Town Elementary School, Ruth
Rains Middle School, Dixie County High School or Instructional Services Building. The Dixie
District Schools Student Progression Plan for students in grades preschool-12th is also available on
line at www.dixie.kl2.fl.us. Dixie County student performance information for the 2005-2006
school year is as follows:

DEMOCRATIC PARTY
DIXIE COUNTY, FLORIDA
SEPTEMBER 5, 2006


You've heard about the fireman going up a tree to ketch a
cat...Well, on a similar note, Steinhatchee School's flagpole was
sickly, needing a good scraping and fresh coat of paint. Mr. James
Valentine, Dixie County Commissioner, arranged for PMT, Mike
Gantt to bring the bucket truck and repaint the flagpole.
After scraping off the rust and crackly paint, Mike applied a
fresh coat of paint as Mr. Franklin Kells, head custodian at
Steinhatchee School, supervised the project.
Principal Sylvia Ivey, expresses deep appreciation for the EM
Services, Mr. Valentine and Mr. Kells for working together to
revive the flagpole so that Old Glory and the state flag can flow in
the wind again, waving as the symbol of life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness .

The Markham Family of Gainesville was driving through Cross City after a day of scalloping and stopped
in for a cool-treat, when they found out about the fundraiser they ordered Blizzards (although there was
one rough banana split and chocolate sundae in the group).

such as heart or lung transplants, cancer, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, to injuries due to
accidents, CMN is able to help with the needs of their young patients. CMN also provides training
for pediatricians and education for families.
Our local Dairy Queen jumped at the chance to help this worthy cause and rallied the community
to the cause as well. During "Miracle Treat Day", 100% of the proceeds from the sell of Blizzard
\ ere donated to CMN. The folks at the Cross City restaurant sold 245 of the tasty treats!
"Once again the communitycame out showing their support to a most worthy charity," stated a
spokesman for the Cross City Dairy Queen. The staff extended their heartfelt thanks to all who
participated, both locals and guests. It was noted that local businesses pre-ordered, calling in orders
of 10 or more!

American

Legion News
Everybody loves a parade,
except maybe those that have to
clean up after it. But a
Veterans Day parade is being
planned for Friday, November 10,
2006. All the area Veteran
Service Organizations are invited
to participate in this event. On
Saturday, November 11, the "real"
Veterans Day, will be Down
Home Days in Trenton, as well as
the opening day of General Gun
Hunting Season. There will be
plenty for everyone to do that
weekend. For more
information on the Veterans Day
parade, contact the Gilchrist
County Historical Society, the
same folks that have brought us
the Memorial Day Services each
year. Maybe you can help them in
some way, in honoring our
Nation's veterans.
Post 91 in Trenton is planning
to host a POW/MIA program at an
area football game soon to honor
those Prisoners of War and
Missing in Action. The third
Friday of September is the
National POW/MIA Recognition
Day every year and this year that
Friday is September 15th. Since
December 7th, 1941, America has
lost many soldiers, sailors, airmen
and Marines, and many of them
have been accounted for and their
remains have been brought home
or buried in foreign cemeteries,
but those troops have been
accounted for and the families
have received a certain amount of
'closure'. For over 88,000
families since 1941, there has been
no real 'closure'. These are our
Nation's POW/MIAs. Nearly
enough to fill Ben Hill Griffith
Stadium at Florida Field on Game
day. Eighty-eight thousand souls
who never came home, whose
families may never know what
happened to them, or where their
remains are.
The Central Identification unit
in Hawaii still sends teams around
the world, searching
battle sites for any traces of our
troops and brings those items back
to the lab to test and
determine who these remains
belonged to. Then, after testing
proves the identity, the next of kin
will be notified, if they can be
found. A great deal of thanks is
owed the men and women that
work at the Central Identification
Laboratories in Hawaii for the
work they do for the POW/MIA.
Recently, some divers found a
sunken US submarine in the
Western Pacific in the Gulf of
Thailand and notified the Navy. A
Navy diving/recovery ship was
eventually sent to the area and sent
divers down to check the
submarine and determine if it
indeed was the one lost in that
area in 1945, with some 80 men
on board. It was determined to be
the USS Lagarto, SS-371, and the
coordinates were marked. The US
Navy recognizes it now as a
protected cemetery area, and the
divers left a monument in honor of
those submariners from World
War II whose families would now
know for sure what had happened
to their loved ones. With torpedo
tube doors open, it was easy to
determine USS Lagarto went
down fighting.
American Legion Post 91 is
planning a Children and Youth
Day for Saturday, September 23.
There will be fun and games and
food, too. More information about
the Children and Youth Day will
come later.
Primary Elections are
coming. Get out and VOTE!
September 5th, 2006. VOTE!
The Fourth District meeting will
be held on September 9, 2006 at
Belleview Post 284.
Remember our Armed Forces
all around the world, every day in


your thoughts and
prayers, and here at home, watch
over our Legionnaires, veterans,
widows and the families of those
service members on active duty,


helping out whenever and
however you can.

Gain More Convenience

Out Of Everyday Products
Whenever the power goes out, it becomes an inconvenience to
everyone. In a world where many people have become accustomed
to using the microwave and hair dryer, not having electricity can
be quite a shock. Now, thanks to inventor Samantha Smith from
Heidelberg, Mississippi, an ingenious line of products will help
consumers in such situations.
Battery Operated Appliances are perfect for use in times of
disasters when power outages occur, such as hurricanes,.
earthquakes or tornadoes. They are also great for camping trips andc
even everyday use, if need be. Battery Operated Appliances are
simple to use and safe for the whole family. There is no limit to
where these practical products can be used.
This original idea is now being made available for licensing to
manufacturers interested in new product development, especially
in the household products industry. Smith is hoping to have
Battery Operated Appliances in full production and available to the'
public within the very near future.
Additional information about Battery Operated Appliances can
be obtained by contacting the Publicity/Press Department ot
Invention Technologies, Inc. at (800) 940-9020 ext. 2285 or at
products(Oinvent-tech.com. Invention Technologies, Inc. is a Coral
Gables, Florida based company that is handling the publicity and
public relations for Battery Operated Appliances.

project is for the revision of Permit No.
0290004-007-AC. The facility is located at
SW of US 19 on Highway 351-A, West of
Cross City, Dixie County, Florida. The
Department has assigned file number
0290004-009-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 person 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
petitioners 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 Departments final
action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substantial interest
will be affected by any such final
decision of the Department on the
application have the right to petition 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,

I How Can The Social Security Disabilty Spealst At Integrated Famiy 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.

Making It In Nashville
"Making it in Nashville" is a six-part series written from the perspective of an up-and
coming country music artist trying to make his way in the Nashville music scene. The
artist's name is Kyle Wyley, and he's a hometown boy from New Mexico who's trying to
live his dream of becoming a nationally-acclaimed musician and songwriter.

This special series will feature a sweepstakes that gives your readers a chance to win a
trip to Nashville and tickets for the 40th Annual Country Music Association Awards and
their host for the show will be none other than Kyle Wyley himself
A Fortunate Breakdown
One day six years ago, the phone rang at the home of Kyle Wyley's parents in Clayton, New
Mexico. It was Kyle, at the time a student at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, on the other
end of the line. "I just sold all my stuff," he announced. "I'm driving to Nashville tonight."
Since age 16, Kyle had been telling his family that he
wanted to make the trip to Music City. His head was filled
with dreams of becoming a country singer, and Nashville
was the only place he could make that happen. But now
they understood for the first time just how serious their son
was about that pie-in-the-sky aspiration. "They said, 'You
do what you need to, son," he recalls. "That's how
supportive they are. They just want me to be happy."
A week after he arrived in Nashville, the engine blew in
the Toyota 4Runner in which he had made the thousand-
mile trip. "I didn't have much to my name at the time,"
remembers Kyle. He was devastated. But almost .
immediately, fate stepped in. A man spotted the 4Runner "
and offered Kyle $7,000 cash for it on the spot, despite its
condition. "It's funny," says Kyle, "the people that God
puts in your life if you're listening close enough."
He bought a new vehicle, and discovered the ;eller had
ties to the music world. From there, Kyle began making
contacts and meeting people in the business, and soon he
was on his way to learning the ropes in Nashville-and it
all started with a blown engine.
"I needed that car to break down," he marvels. "I needed that to get started."
Keep reading Dixie County Advocate to find out how you can win a trip to Nashville to see the
CMA Awards with Kyle.
