Suwannee Lumber

Employee


~Fatally Injured
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Scott Johnson, 40, of Cross City, was fatally injured this past
B Saturday, August 26th while performing maintenance on
equipment at the Suwannee Lumber Company. An in depth
r investigationn is being handled by Workman's Comp and the
Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
According to a Suwannee Lumber Company spokesman, the
mill had closed for the day, 6:00 pm, and Johnson along with
Scott Johnson several other employees were performing routine maintenance on
their equipment. Johnson, a five-year employee, was trained to
work on the Chip-N-Saw machine and had done so for almost as many years as he had been working
there. It is not known how, but he was found trapped between two press rolls.
Fellow workers Randy Stevens and Jeff Price found Johnson and called 911. Johnson was
pronounced dead at the scene by Dixie EMS.
It is protocol for Workman's Comp and OSHA to investigate such incidents. From their
preliminary reports, Johnson's death is being called accidental.
"Management at Suwannee-Lumber expresses their deepest sympathy and compassion to Scott's
family members and to all his co-workers who lost a friend in such a tragic way," stated the
spokesman.
Johnson was a lifelong resident of Dixie County and was the father of two sons, Andrew 18 and
Colby 2. A visitation will be held from 6-8pm Wednesday, August 30th, at the Rick Gooding
Funeral Home. Services will be held Thursday, August 31st at 2:00pm with burial following in the
Cross City Cemetery.
Suwannee Lumber closed this past Monday, August 28t" out of respect for Johnson and will be
closed on Thursday so the staff at the mill can attend his funeral.

In National

Spotlight
It has been a whirlwind year
for GenSpec Labs, LLC,
founded by local Attorney,
Joseph Lander GenSpec,
which stands for Genetically
Specific, all started by an off
handed comment by a young
African American girl who was
one of Joseph's clients. Joey's
research went beyond the young girl's legal case and into how to
help the young girl with her diabetic condition; Lander stumbled
upon a field of data that evolved into the backbone of GenSpec
Labs.
Not only did Joey begin researching, but God placed people in
his life at the right time which allowed him to take the product
from a concept to a nationally recognized product. One of those
'individuals is Advocate co-owner, Dale Herring. "I am 100%
certain God placed the people, facts and lives together which have
been the foundation for GenSpec and provided a national platform
for me to provide God's witness.", Lander states. For example,
Joey, an avid public speaker since young adulthood will soon
present lectures at the Learning Annex in New York along side
such speakers as Donald Trump and Anthony Robins. Lander is
also working on a book in which he will be sure to use its pages to
glorify God as well as educate each of us about our unique
nutritional needs.
GenSpec Labs is the world's first Genetically Specific

Local Fire Departments
To Hold Boot


Drive For MDA
- This coming Labor Day Weekend, local fire departments will
be participating in the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)
Boot Drive. Fire fighters will be collecting money on Friday,
'September 1, 2006 from 10AM until dusk at the intersection of US
:19 and CR 351.
The MDA Boot Drive has special meaning to local fire fighters
as one of their own, Richard Greig, died from Lou Gehrig's
,disease. Richard was a dedicated paramedic for Dixie County
EMS and a great friend to all who knew him.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the boot drive will
:go to the MDA. The MDA was founded in 1950 and is dedicated
in conquering the 43 neuromuscular diseases that affect more than
a million Americans each year. Besides research, contributions go
towards helping those who are battling one of those diseases. It
assists in purchasing wheelchairs, leg braces, or communication
devices; sends children to MDA Summer Camp; and provides
medical services.
SFlorida fire fighters have led the nation in collecting
contributions at the annual boot drive. Last year they almost lost to
Texas fire fighters, but hope to continue their #1 position.
Your support on September 1s't will be greatly appreciated.

Domestic Dispute Ends

In Husband Being

Charged With Arson


Fire fighters secure the scene where a mobile home was destroyed by an
arsonist last Sunday.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
A domestic dispute between Lawrence C. and Mandi Sue
Harper on Sunday, August 27h, 2006 ended with Lawrence being
arrested for arson after he allegedly set fire to the mobile home his
wife was living in.
According to a report filed by the Dixie County Sheriffs
Office, Mandi was separated from Lawrence and was living in a
doublewide mobile home off NE 638th Street in Old Town, just off
Spillers Highway, (Old Matt Road). Mandi stated to investigators
that she had spent the previous night at a friend's house and when
she arrived back at her home she found her clothing, bedroom suit,
including the mattress and box springs, burned in the back yard.
She reported the incident to authorities that served Lawrence an
injunction against domestic violence, ordering him to stay away
from his wife.
At approximately 8:17pm fire stations #21 land #31 were called
to Mandi's mobile home after she returned home for the second
time and found it in flames. Cross City Fire Department lent aide
with a water truck. See "ARSON" page 5


FWC Addresses

Sturgeon Problem In

Suwannee River
Signs Warning Boaters of the Fish Line River


ut. Roy Williams of the FWC puts up the first "Be Aware" sign for
,sturgeon at the Rock Bluff boat ramp.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
This year there have been seven reports of sturgeon strikes on
the Suwannee River resulting in injuries to boaters. This unusual
amount of strikes by the large fish prompted the Florida Wildlife
Commission (FWC) to bring better pubic awareness of the
jumping fish with the installation of over 100 signs at all public
boat ramps along the 170 miles of river they habitat.
FWC Major Bruce Hamlin and FWC Biologist Jerry
Krummrich were on hand to answers questions regarding the
prehistoric fish.
Krummrich noted that while injuries occurred when the fish
jumped, he stressed that they were not "attacks". "The fish are
doing what they do, jump," Krummrich stated. He added that when
they jump they can clear the water by several feet, on average 4-5
feet, verticality. See "STURGEON"page 12A

The 2006 Scallop Season

Was Goldwater a liberal?
* No, I haven't subscribed to the New York Times, I just happened
to catch an excerpt from the Times' Sunday magazine on the
Internet. Had it appeared in this or any other respectable journal, I
would have considered it a misprint.
The Times feature quoted several liberal Democrats who saic
they liked the late Senator Barry Goldwater, apparently because he
Was-at least according to them-a liberal. This cheering section
included the likes of James Carville, Al Franken, Ted Kennedy anc
Hillary Clinton.
Hillary, I could almost understand. After all, she was a
"Goldwater Girl," campaigning for the Arizona Senator in his
1:964 run for president. Goldwater is dead, Hillary, is seeking a
moderate image, and this might make It look like she could work
with Republicans if she made it to the White House.
But the rest of that bunch? It hardly seems likely;, however
politics is politics, and sometimes one's best interests are served by
letting bygones be bygones. Democrats often praise Lincoln, some-
times Eisenhower, perhaps even Reagan-but Barry Goldwater?
Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, that
beingl964, when Lyndon B. Johnson won in a landslide against the
Goldwater challenge and the Republican Party was declared
moribund by the major media.
Johnson had been John F. Kennedy's vice-president, and before
that, Senate Majority Leader, in which capacity he opposed civi
tights legislation at every opportunity; however he saw the hand-
writing on the wall. He understood that he would have to change
his tune if he wanted to campaign on Kennedy's image, which is
what he did, and with resounding success.
Goldwater was known by his friends as "Mr. Conservative," bu
the Johnson campaign depicted him as a war monger who would
provoke the Soviet Union into a nuclear confrontation that would
kill us all. The strategy worked. The only benefit to the GOP was
that a few southern states voted their way for the first time since the
post-Civil War Reconstruction.
Republicans, of course, often react in similar fashion to long
dead leaders of the opposition party. Roosevelt and Truman, ar
regularly praised, as is JFK--now. However, a Republicar
Congress initiated the process which resulted in the 22nd Amend
ment, passed to prevent a president from being elected to a third
let alone a fourth tern, as FDR was. Even Gerald Ford remembers
that Truman's popularity hit a point even lower than Nixon's at the
height of Watergate. And Goldwater's "extreme" conservatism was
what Republicans figured would defeat John F. Kennedy's
liberalism, and it might have. It just couldn't defeat his ghost.
Whereas liberals might be cautiously praising Goldwater's
"liberalism," they are not talking about the 1964 presidential
candidate. They're talking about the senator who later endorsed
gays in the military, apparently because he had a family member
who was thusly inclined. His approval of abortion-on-demand
could have been a matter of seeking a more "moderate" image in
light of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, or maybe it was an
unwanted pregnancy in his past that somehow affected him
Chances are, we'll never know.
The point is, abortion and gay rights were not big issues in
1964, and would not have been embraced by the most liberal
candidate in either party, let alone the most conservative. Hac
Barry Goldwater circa 1964 been elected and gone on to champion
gay rights and abortion, that would have done the Republicmn Party
a lot more damage than losing an election to the president whose
policies lost the Vietnam War.

Letter To The Editor
I live on NE 272 Ave (Purvis Landing Road) and over the
past year this road has become known as one of the worst in Dixie
County. On the evening of 27 Aug 2006 I observed several (by
the way more than 6) vehicles exceeding the speed limit (40Mph).
I decided to call the Dixie County Sheriffs Office.
The Dispatcher asked me if I had a particular vehicle that I
had observed. I said NO. There were several vehicles speeding
up and down the road. The dispatcher said they would send a
Deputy. I waited and no Deputy came. I called back and the next
dispatcher said, "Our deputies have better things to do than sit and
wait for a speeder"... About that time I talked to a deputy (she
said a Deputy was on his/her way) and then went to the end of my
driveway and waited. Nobody came except more speeders.
Well I guess even though Purvis Landing Road is rated as
one of the worst in Dixie County the Sheriffs Department has
better things to do. Sorry, if I sound so critical but I feel that I
was put behind as well as the folks that were KILLED/INJURED.
on/off Purvis Landing last year. Just maybe some changes should
be made where the cost of life is more important than someone
having a good time.

Letter To The Editor
While I am not a resident of Dixie County and cannot vote in
the upcoming primary, my experiences in the county lead me to
pen this letter in support of Carla Downing for Clerk of Court. I
spend a lot of time in Dixie County, have owned property there in
the past and currently own property there. My fiance's family are
all Cross City natives. (Hiers and Revels) I have been in and out
of the clerk's office dozens of times in the past few years, and
have always found Carla to be friendly, cheerful, and helpful. In
particular, she has been helpful because she knows what there is
to know about the clerk's office and how it functions. She was
never too busy to take a moment and explain something to me,
even when it probably seemed that I must be rather dim witted..
I do not know Carla outside the office, and this note is
unsolicited by her. But I would encourage voters to consider
putting her in the Clerk of Court's office because she is
competent. If she is elected, there won't be a learning curve she
already knows it. I just can't help feeling that if she was that on
top of things, that helpful, that good natured before she was
running for office that the county could reasonably expect and
benefit from more of the same after the election.
Sincerely,
Frank Rathbumr

Letter to the Editor
In regard to the recent incidents involving the sturgeons, I
would like to express a few observations.
First, it is always tragic when people are injured and hard
earned property is damaged. I sincerely hope that the people who
were injured by the sturgeon have a quick recovery.
Second, when we humans go into the wild or encroach on the
natural world, the creatures that have inhabited the woods, rivers,
swamps, oceans etc. do not sit down at a negotiating table and set
rules and boundaries.
The animals, fish etc have no place to go and if we are in their
1 environment then we as being the more intelligent being should
* understand that we are visitors in their home.
The fact is simply more and more people are on the water, in
the woods, and such that it isn't that the animals are "Out of
control or overpopulated", but that our chances of having an
encounter with them increases.
I went scalloping on August 20th and I had the unfortunate luck
to tangle with a jellyfish. The sting was very painful and my day
ended before it really got going. However, I don't blame the
jellyfish. I knew to look out for them. I knew I had gone into their
. environment and that the risk of something negative occurring
s could happen. That's just life.
a If the sturgeons are now overpopulated, then I trust the wisdom
of the experts who can determine what measures it will take to
balance the scales.
I realize that the recent occurrences were not brought on due to
the irresponsibilities of the people or the sturgeons. But we must
Y accept certain responsibilities and know that there are potential
risks involved in everything we do in this world. The sturgeons
are only doing what is natural to them, they are living their lives as
t they have been genetically designed to do and have been doing for
e ages.
I The only way not to have an unfortunate encounter with the
wild creatures of this world is to not venture out of your home.
e But, if you choose to go into the natural environment be
l responsible enough to understand bad things sometimes happen.
Thank you,
e Marilyn S. Langley

t Letter To The Editor
This' will not be one of the most amazing letters you will ever
1 read, however I feel that I would be remorse for not putting it to
s print. Our society as a whole is all quick to put the blame where it
Belongs, and to slow to give credit where it is due. With that in
mind I feel compelled to write this letter. It's mid-August, and
like other bow hunter I'm making ready for the upcoming season.
Part of the make ready is to purchase and install a winch bumper
e for my 1989 F150, not a major task right? I would soon be proved
Wrong. After countless numbers of dead end calls, and empty
- searches via the net, I was somewhat in disbelief and frustrated.
' In conversation with a long-time friend I was introduced to
s Doyle Eatmon at FAB TECH in Cross City. With what I know
e now I wish I had gone there first. After a brief explanation of
s what I had been through and what I was looking for, Steve and
SDoyle said, "we can help". I was amazed at how fast Doyle came
up with an idea. After only a minute of kicking around some steel,
s the idea was starting to come together. Doyle asked if I was in a
l big rush and I said take your time. That next afternoon I called to
d check on what had been done and found not only was the bumper
r finished and installed, it was more than adequate, it also dressed
Sup the truck.
S With a construction background myself, it was all too


obvious of the high level of pride, quality and craftsmanship that
. was put into this project. The quality and attention to detail was
evident in the end product. The cost was more than competitive,
and all this combined to produce one happy customer.
l So I'll take time to pen this letter, to brag on the guys at FAB
TECH and encourage all that read it to use them.
On a personal note, I would like to put credit where credit is
due, and say that it was a pleasure to do business with a local
y company whose employees live and go to church here at home.
Thank you very much and may god bless you all.

There are losses in life that
are to be expected, death being
the finality. For we know from
birth our days on earth to be
numbered. Yet, for those who
are self-destructive those days
are shortened and the loss
greater.
Life is a gift and to
squander it by suicide or drug
abuse is immoral. For this
leaves some of us left behind
with a lingering sense of
sorrow, overwhelmed by an
inability to help. Having to
deal not only with the grief,
but also the guilt and anger.
As day to day life continues
into years that come full circle
with birthdays, family reunions
and other noted events, we
come face to face with this one
reality... that this was your
decision... and we are
confounded with the absurdity.

Letter To The Editor
I have read your paper every week and watch people slander,
others without due cause or wrong information, and I truly ,
believe that in a small town this is so hurtful to someone's true
character. We all realize that there are bad people everywhere, .no
matter what town or city you are in. Those people will always
show their ugliness in everything they do and with everyone they
meet, we do not need a paper to tell us who they are.
The letters to the editor should be about people that stand out
for the good of the community. They should recognize people for `
what they contribute to and not what they take away from. There.
are people in this community that never get recognized for:
standing up for the good.
I would personally like to see more letters to the editor in,
regards to the person helping lift the community up, rather than
bringing it down. I know we all know someone out there that-*
deserves the recognition for being a great supporter, a helping'
hand or someone that stands out in the crowd. Those are the'.
people I want to read about. So far all those that read the paper,:
let's flood it with the good and stop harboring on the bad.
Let me be the first to start, I would like to thank all those that:
helped give a new business a chance to grow with the community.'
The Old Town Rental Shop has been open for a year now, and the
business has gone better than expected. We have met so many
great people in this community and were able to jump through the.
hoops of a new business with their help. So thanks for your
support, business advice and patronage.
Sandra Maynard
Old Town

Letter to the Editor
In reply to Mrs. Annie Northup's letter in the D.C.A. dated,
August 17, 2006, I would like to make a few comments about the
sturgeon not paying taxes and voting.0
First, I would like to thank the State of Florida for all they have
done to protect the Suwannee River.
Second, I would like to bring to her attention that the river is
one of my favorite places with its beautiful springs and good
fishing. Dixie County is where I chose to retire and spend the rest'
of my life enjoying its natural beauty. (Which is changing fast.)
Dixie County is the Nature Coast. It is more like what God:
created for us to enjoy than any other place I know.
The point I really want to make is the Suwannee River at one'
time was the only river in Florida long before man was here:
Please be aware that the sturgeons were in it then. It is one of the
few rivers in the United States that is still natural and wild.
The question I would like to ask is, "Do you not think that we:
have destroyed more of nature for our so-called enjoyment?"
The fact is the sturgeon's home is in the river. It came from the?
Gulf to the river to spawn as it was created to do. We need to
realize that we are the intruders. We need to live in harmony within
the natural surroundings.
Maybe we could slow down and enjoy the beauty of what is.
here. Not fly up and down the river with our fast boats and jet:
skis. They make it hard for other people to enjoy the fish and'
natural peace the river offers.
I could continue on, but space does not permit it.
One last question, "How would you respond if someone
invaded your home like we do the river?"
I vote and pay taxes in this country and I would like the state
and Dixie County to keep the Nature Coast "Natural".
Thank you,
Gerald Langley,
Jena Nothing will sustain you :

"SPOTLIGHT"
Continued from page I
multivitamin especially formulated for the needs of African
American men and women, a formula for Hispanic men and
women, and also Caucasian men and women as well as a weight
loss line. GenSpec began shipping out to national drug store
chains last week after already being available at select stores and
websites. GenSpec has been featured on ABC's Good Morning
America, The Today Show, Today's Health with Chris Everett,
The WB, Fox News, The New York Times, The Washington Post,
The Miami Herald, The Tampa Tribune, Good Housekeeping,
Sports Illustrated, Latino, Estylo, and Industry publications like
Vitamin Retailer, Chain Drug Review, and Mass Market Retail.
This type of National Media attention is unheard of for a company
that is less than one year old. Joey credits both the unique nature
of the product as well as his nationally recognized support team for
this fact. Lizzie Grubman P.R., has their own show on MTV, and
such clients as P. Diddy, Russell Simmons, and Gloria Esteffan.
Ink. & Co., GenSpec's marketing and branding firm represents
clients like Sara Lee, Loreal, Nautica, Cadillac, and their
management services are currently part of the prize package on the
television show, Project Runway.
When asked about his experience over the last year, Joey
states: "It has been both the most tiring but the most educational
time of my life. It has given me the opportunity to bring the
experience of heading a national company into my local Dixie
County Law Practice. Rumors to the contrary aside, Joey's Law
Firm doors are still open and he handles select cases with the same
determination as ever before. "I love practicing law and luckily
have capable employees in place all over the US to push GenSpec
forward to allow me time for my law cases here in the Tri County
Area.", says Lander.
One of the things that has shocked and disappointed Joey over
the past year is the realization that you just don't find the honest,
hardworking individuals in other parts of the country as you do in
Dixie County. It is this realization that has inspired Joey to
continue providing legal services in part to avoid these "South
Florida" tactics from invading the community he graduated from
High School and chooses to raise his family. Joey stated that while
his travels have taken him many places, he states that his heart and
home will always be here in Dixie County.
Joey's law practice is located in the historical brick building at
222 NE 210th Ave across from Hill Insurance. He gives free
evaluations on all legal cases. GenSpec Labs is headquartered
beside the Dixie County Library, the website is
www.4GenSpec.com.


"ARSON"
Continued from page 1
When fire fighters arrived approximately half of the home was
engulfed in flames. They were able to extinguish the fire,
however, smoke and water damage, along with the fire damage,
left the home totally destroyed..
I The State Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the fire. A
Preliminary report from that office (State Fire Marshall), along
with a witness' report led to Lawrence as being a suspect in the
arson case.
A preliminary investigation led officers to Lawrence as the
arson suspect. Lawrence, who had already been arrested on
Domestic Violence Assault charge earlier in the day and taken to
the Dixie County Jail, was arrested on an additional charge of
arson.


"LOCKLEAR"
Continued from page 1
certified as an Emergency
Medical Technician and I was
hired by Dixie County
Emergency Services, where I
am currently employed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed
being on the City Council and
working for the people of
Cross City for the past two
years. I ask each individual
voter to re-elect Clay Locklear
when they cast their vote on
Monday, October 2, 2006. I
will continue to offer my
experience, my work ethic, and
my integrity to the people of
Cross City.

"HURST"
Continued from page 1
Corporation, I have
become even more involved in
assisting the Town. We have
met many difficult challenges
and have made numerous
improvements in our effort to
bring Cross City into the 21st
century.
Some of the projects the
Town has undertaken during
my service to the City Council
are: to meet the Town's
growing needs and comply
with the new federal and state
water quality standards;
completely rebuilt our water
plant and relocation of our well
field at a cost of approximately
$7,000,000; a $2,500,000
upgrade to our sewer system
including construction of an
effluent spray field; an
expansion of our sewer
collection system to many
Cross City residents; paving
and resurfacing many city
streets; obtained 5 grants to
fund City Park improvements;
worked closely with Cross
City Rehab to locate their
facility in Cross City; enlarged
City Hall to provide adequate
working space for the staff and
police department; worked
closely with other government
agencies in making our
Greenway Trail a reality.
The Town is now in the
process of relocating Peppers
Park to a more suitable
location for children. We have
just completed another stage of


a $500,000 paving and
resurfacing project.
I believe in strong, decisive
leadership. I believe in
working with and through the
citizens of Cross City to meet
the demands of our growing
community.
Through your vote and
support on Monday, October 2,
I am confident that we can
continue the progress together
and continue the effort to build
a better future for the citizens
of Cross City.
"SCALLOPS"
Continued from page 1
why the scallops didn't flood
in, varied. Florida Wildlife
Commission Biologist Jerry
Krummrich, also could not
give a definite answer as to the
low numbers this year.
David Pierce of the
Horseshoe Marina stated they
have had less than a quarter of
the people that usually come
out for the annual harvest.
However some of their
customers have reported to
have had luck about a mile
west of Pepperfish.
Susie Johns of the Sea Hag
stated her customers are
finding the crustaceans in
deeper water. "We are still
having a good season though,"
she added. It was noted that
their annual cliental continue
to come. 'They know where
to look and don't get
discouraged like the new
people do," she added.
Toni Chesser of the River
Haven Marina and Joel
McClellan of Ideal Marina
both have experienced lower
than normal activity at their
marinas and said it has had a
large impact on them
economically.
They all agreed the
scallops that have been
harvested, are a decent size
and meaty. They also stated
the inshore fishing has been
great, while offshore fishing,
like the scallops has been slim
pickings. The sheepshead
came in several weeks late and
you will be lucky to find any
grouper.
Some of the guesses as to
why the 2006 season has been
so poor have ranged from too


much rain, hotter water temps,
red tide from the spring and in
June, tropical storm Alberto.
Or it simply may just not be
our year. Both Homosassa and
Port St. Joe are reporting good
harvests.
The 2006 Season will last
until September 10th, so you
still have an opportunity to get
out there and try your luck at Get Results
scooping up what you can.
Remember, go in a little By Calling
deeper water and ask the local 498-3312
marinas where sightings have
been made, and if all else fails, Have Your Ad
stay inshore where you can Put In Today!

Rep Kendrick Seeks Insurance
Relief Efforts
From Administration
As Hurricane Ernesto approaches the Florida coast, residents
are urged to take the highest precautions for their safety.
If this was an actual headline today, would you be considering
how your property insurance company will cover your losses and
the future effects of it on your wallet? The crunches of premium
increases are already spinning many homeowners in an eye-wall of
panic.
Rep. Will Kendrick (D) Carrabelle, in an effort to provide
answers to residents in the district that he represents, sent a letter to
Governor Jeb Bush on August 1, 2006. The letter was also
forwarded to Speaker Allan Bense, Senate President Tom Lee, and
Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty and asks the Governor to
call a special session to deal with the crisis of cancelled policies
and skyrocketing increases if insurance can even be obtained. So
far the appeal has not even garnered a response.
"It's frustrating as a Legislator to have this crisis still looming
since I feel we could have better addressed the issue in the last
Session. It's even more frustrating to have those in leadership to
ignore me as a colleague," said Rep. Kendrick.
Constituents are suffering today, the consequences of
disastrous legislation pushed through by a Republican led agenda
which are now offering only a stall tactic by passing the buck to an
unelected committee which will undoubtedly reach a possible
recommendation shortly before or after the general elections are
held.
Rep. Kendrick said, "A convening of the full Legislature is
necessary and must incorporate a comprehensive plan that will
keep Florida's families in their homes." However, Kendrick is
opposed to the Governor's belief that there should be a
predetermined or defined agenda.
"I believe that the committee could offer valuable input for a
resolution to the crisis, but unlike the Governor, I don't believe
that the Legislature should be bound to accept committee
recommendations as a condition of calling a special session,"
Kendrick continued.
It is the responsibility of the Legislature to set policy based on
input from constituents and not at the sole direction of the
Governor. The reason we have 3 branches of government is so the
people are represented.

for

CLERK OF COURT


SEPTEMBER 5th

To all my friends and neighbors that I have met over the past few months as I have
journeyed over Dixie County as a candidate for the Clerk of Court office. I would like
to say "Thank You" for welcoming me in your homes and listening to me. As well, I
have listened to you as you expressed your concerns and needs for the Clerk's
office.

I am a lifelong resident of Dixie County. My parents are Ruby Corbin Osteen and
the late Lloyd Osteen. I am married to Janet Hooper Osteen.and we have five
children and one grandson.

I graduated from Dixie County High School in 1981 and then pursued a degree at
Lake City Community College in Criminal Justice. I completed the class for FDLE
standards to become a correctional officer. I then continued my standards by
completing over 290 class hours of additional training while working for the
Department of Corrections for 10 years. Since that time I have been employed by
Cross City Veneer for 11 years where I have worked and supervised approximately
50 employees daily.

I will bring back the "old-time" atmosphere where you are treated with the utmost
respect and treated equally. I care about you and your needs. I will continue to
listen to you the people and your suggestions. I will ensure you that whatever the
reason is big or small that your business with the clerk's office will be done with
confidence and in a timely manner.

I will make sure that the elderly and the handicapped are taken care of. I will also
make sure that my staff is trained with the most recent up to date training.

I will ensure that when a job vacancy is available that it will be posted and
advertised in the local paper and all applications will be reviewed and considered.

People say one man cannot make a difference, but I believe one man can, so on
September 5, 2006 VOTE AND ELECT DAVID "RED-O" OSTEEN and let my words
be put into action.

I have been given the opportunity to meet a lot of people, but if there is one of you I
have been unable to see and you have a question, please feel free to give me a call
(352) 498-0682 or (352) 356-0063.

Faith Baptist Church Newsletter
August 27, 2006
We thank God for the wonderful rain He sent our way. Our
crowd was large and the Spirit was strong in both services. The
special music in both services was great and Bro. Jackie delivered
two wonderful messages that God had laid on his heart.
It's the time of year that new officers are being put into place for
the coming year and if you haven't signed up for an office, pray
about it and if God is dealing with you about teaching a class,
working with the youth, working in the nursery, or just whatever
He has in mind and has equipped you to do, sign up now. You will
receive a special blessing from Him for any part that you take. He
gave you a talent and He'll bless you if you use it for Him.
It was good to have some back who had been on vacation and to
know that God gave them a safe trip, and others left this week on
vacation and we pray that God will protect them and bring them
back to us safely real soon.
Remember this week to pray for the less fortunate, the sick, and
especially the lost. Invite a friend, neighbor or co-worker to
Sunday School and Church with you. Our Sunday School
attendance has been down a little and we especially invite you to
Sunday School. We have wonderful teachers who do a great job
and if you'd come expecting a blessing. :,ot'll surel,, get onec
Remember the Wednesday night serN ices also \\ e miss ',ou hen
you aren't there. Until next week, ma,, God keep ,Lou safe, happ',

'Pastor Appreciation Day
:To Be Held September 3rd
We, the members of First
Baptist Church of Cross City,
FL invite each and everyone to
the Pastor's Appreciation for
Rev. A.L..., .Powell on
-September 3, 2006 at 2:00pm.
We're asking everyone to
come and help us celebrate
'another year that the Lord has
'blessed us with His servant.
: Looking forward to seeing
a11 of you!
Thank you.. .The Members

:The Word Made

XFlesh
"Mark of the Beast"
;Continued from last week. I, the son
-of man, say Eve ate of this forbidden
:tree, and she did not stop there. She
.went right on and gave this food to
,Adam. They both knew that God
:had said in the day you eat of this, ye
"shall surely die. Death then came in
.the Garden of Eden upon Adam and
,Eve. They did not die naturally; it
-started on the inside of them. This is
*the mark of carnality that came into
:the human race. Man doesn't want
.to admit that he is CARNAL,
"WRETCHED, NAKED, and
\BLIND. (Rev. 3:17-19) I, the son of
tnan, say religion is the worst plaque
'that ever struck the human race. We
nimust know the difference between
religion and salvation. We must be
1'able to detect the religious lie of
"Satan from the truth of God's word.
IThe scripture says, "God is a Spirit:
"and they that worship him must
"worship him in spirit and in truth".
.(St. John 4:24) You cannot worship
min something that is not in you. You
cannot worship in the truth, and at
.the same time listen to Satan's lie of
.deception. The scripture says, "And,
:ye shall know the truth and the truth
:shall make you free". (St. John 8:32)
I, the son of man, say inside this man
:Adam was the ability to hear the
:voice of God. God wasn't walking
;around in the Garden in some kind of
-image. God could speak to this man
-Adam that HE made, and Adam
-could hear God's voice. There was
-no reason for Adam to be hiding
-somewhere, because he was in
harmony with God. Adam was
-under the leadership of God and so
.was his companion. When God
:spoke to Adam, he talked to him
inside of Adam's body, inside his
:oul. But in the day their eyes were
'opened was the day carnality came to
-both male and female. Why? They
,pushed aside the ability to listen to
'.the voice of the spirit of God. in
.exchange for the knowledge of good
:and evil. I, the son of man, say this
,brought the channel into existence in
the earth (people) that produced
Jeath all the way through the human
',ace, even until now. The Apostle
*.aul taught this channel was the
,.arnal mind.
.Continued next week.


Pray
For
Peace

In Loving Memory


Toni Hatch
Missing You...
I know that you are happy,
But miss your family too,
I know that one thing is certain,
Your family misses you.
Your friends will never forget you,
You showed them too much love,
So try to keep us in mind,
While you walk with the angels above.
I know you feel our sorrow,
So much cannot be ignored,
But our sorrow shows our love,
Which for you is freely poured.
When at last we meet again
And life here is at it's end,
What a great day that will be,
When I'm with you, and you're with me.
Happy Birthday Toni September 3rd, 1971

Ten years? How could that be?
Ten years since we saw your smiling face
Ten years since we heard your voice
Some days it feels like forever and
Some days it feels like only yesterday that
You hugged my neck, smiled and said, "I will
Be back before supper Ma."
How could that be?
Why were you suddenly taken from us?
We will never understand the reasons why.
The only comfort we have is God's word.
God's word says that we will see you again.
If we believe in Him there is life after death,
And we believe.
We love and miss you very much!

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"GOD"
I the Day of the Lord, say God is Divine Esse itself, Divine Essence itself,
and substance and form: itself, it appears as if esse and essence were the
same, but still esse is more universal than essence, for an essence supposes
an esse, and from esse, essence is derived. The Esse of God, or the Divine
Esse cannot be scribed because it is above every idea of human thought,
into which nothing else falls than what is created and finite, but not what
is uncreated and infinite, thus not the Divine Esse. I the Day of the Lord,
say The Divine Esse is Esse itself, from which are all things and which
must be in all things that they may be. God is called Jehovah from Esse,
thus from this, that He alone is, was, and will be, and He is the First and
the Last, the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega. The one
God is substances itself and form, itself and angels and men are substances
and form from Him; and as far as they are in Him and He in them, so far
they are images and likenesses of Him. I the Day of the Lord, say The
Divine Esse is Esse in itself and at the game time Existere in itself. The
Divine Esse and Existere in itself cannot produce another Divine, which is
Esse and Existere in itself; consequently, there cannot be another God of
the same essence. The plurality of Gods in ancient and in modem times
existed from no other cause than from not understanding the Divine Esse.'
I the Day of the Lord, say The one God is called Jehovah from Esse, thus
from this, that He alone is, was, and will be. Jehovah signifies I Am and
Being is known; and that God was so called from most ancient times is.
evident from the book of Creation, or Genesis where in the first chapter.
He is named God; but in the second and the following, Jehovah God; and.
afterward when the descendant of Abraham by Jacob during their
sojourning in Egypt forgot the name of God, it was recalled to their
remembrance-as is thus writt: Moses said unto God, What is Thy name?'
God said, I AM WHO AM. Thus shalt thou say to the sons of Israel, I
AM hath sent me unto you... and thou shalt say, JEHOVAH, the God of
your fathers... hath sent me unto you; this is My name forever, and this is
My memorial unto generation and generation. (Exod 3:13-15) I the Day,
of the Lord, say God is called the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning,
and the End, because Alpha is the first and Omega is the last letter in the.
Greek alphabet, and because they signify all things in the complex.

:FACC Welcome Back


:. -V[ ;





FACC members and executive board stand ready to serve returning
::faculty and staff.
: LAKE CITY, Fla. The Lake City Community College
: (LCCC) chapter of Florida Association of Community Colleges
(FACC) welcomed back LCCC faculty and staff for its 59th year
of offering a quality education to the residents of Baker, Columbia,
.Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties. What better way to welcome
them than with a picnic style luncheon.
Lake City Community College FACC members including
Myrtle Kerce, Donna Lee, Debra Harrison, Dena Davis, Judy
Wilson, Mary Newsome, Jennifer Pauwel, Doris Godwin, and
Nonie Silcox served up cold cut sandwiches with all the trimmings
to a packed dining room in the Lobo Cafe.
FACC also held a membership drive for new members
welcoming three new members, two renewals, and several pending
applications representing 80 percent of faculty and staff. They
were also collecting donations for one of their annual nonprofit
projects, "shoes and socks" needed for the children of Columbia
County.
Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, August 24th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. A beautiful Leaf Quilt top was put
together for Virginia Beauchamp and Goldie will be quilting it at
her home.
We celebrated Goldie's 92nd birthday today. Next Wednesday
she will be 92, but we thought that we would have her birthday
early. She has been with us since the late 80's and has been a great
blessing to all of us. Wouldn't it be great to know how many
quilts she has made in her lifetime?
We will be having an auction Saturday, September 9th at 4 p.m.
We encourage you to come early and see all of the great things the
auction has to offer. Pickup from the auction can be done on
Sunday, September 10"'.
Jarrod and 5 boys visited with us Tuesday. We will all be glad
when fall gets here. It is so hot during the day, but everyone gets
everything done. We would like to thank Jarrod and the boys from
Lancaster.
How good it was to have Marie Poppenhager back with us.
Marie does a great job of running the kitchen. Today the food was
plentiful. We had dressing, gravy, carrot salad, fried okra, tossed
salad, sauerkraut, Betty's apple pie, Goldie's carrot birthday cake
and much more.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 2006


Our "Dixie Sighting" this week was brought in by Melba Delaney of Old Town. Melba was
pruning one of her cedar trees when she spied this huge caterpillar munching away. Melba stated she
had seen large leaf eater before but didn't know just what it is, or what, if anything it will become.
If you have an answer, please contact us at the Advocate at 498-3312 or email your information
to news@dcadvocate.net.
Thanks, Melba!

"STURGEON"
Continued from page 1

The Gulf sturgeon appeared 225 million years ago. Like the
shark, they have evolved. They have a cartilaginous backbone, no
skeletal structure and bony plates on the outside, giving them a
pre-historic look. The gulf species can grow to be 8 feet long and
over 200 pounds. Many live to be over 40 years old.
Gulf sturgeon spend the majority of its life in fresh water, (8-9
months; during the spring and summer) and in the Gulf during the
winter months.
With the number of attacks that have occurred this year the
question had been posed as to what can be done. Because the Gulf
sturgeon are on the threatened species list, alerting boaters to the
fact they are in the river and jumping is the only alternative the
FWC has.
Normally the FWC receives an average of 2-3 reports of
injuries when man and fish meet, but with low water levels in the
river this year which decrease the fish's habitat, and the increase in
boating traffic, it only stands to reason that these meeting are going

Major Hamlin stated that in addition to the signs being installed
at the public boat ramps, they are offering signs to camp grounds
and private boat ramps as well. FWC officers began putting up the
signs on August 25 and should complete the task by September
1st, in time for the Labor Day weekend.
"We are fortunate not to have had more serious accidents,"
stated Hamlin. "With boaters being more aware of the fish, we
hope to keep injuries down," he added.
This picture shows, from a distance, a sturgeon jumping by the Rock
Buff boat ramp. This is normal activity for the fish that lives in the
Suwannee 8-9 months out of the year.

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.
Making His Mark in Nashville
Having left college, his ranching family and his home state of New Mexico behind for the bright
lights of Nashville in 2000, aspiring singer Kyle Wyley quickly began learning his way around the
country music business.
"Coming from the 2,500-population town of Clayton,
I couldn't really wrap my head around moving to a big city
of a million-plus people," he recalls. "I thought I was gonna
get lost in the shuffle, but the city really took me in. The
people are incredible here. I call it a 'big small town,'
because everybody seems to know everybody and it doesn't -
take long to get a good network of friends going. It's been
really good to me."
So good, in fact, that Kyle is already preparing to
release his second album. It'll be mostly made up of songs
he wrote himself, either alone or with co-writers. "I'm.
finding myself right now, and I love the fact that I'm
capable of putting down those feelings on paper," says
Kyle, who describes his style as "driving and crazy and
funny. I get 'em laughing, get 'em dancing, and then just
drop 'em with a great ballad!"
Kyle has been consumed by the urge to entertain
since his childhood in New Mexico, and that's exactly what
he wants to do in his music-nothing more, nothing less.
"I'm not making a statement," he says. "I'm not trying to prove anything. I don't say anything
political, I don't say anything about religion. I just want people to laugh, have a good time and feel
special."
Keep reading Dixie County Advocate to find out how you can win a trip to Nashville to see
the CMA Awards with Kyle.

.By John Kelley
"We still own the Suwannee!" according
-to comments made by Coach Wilkerson after
the Dixie County Bears soundly defeated the
'Chiefland Indians on Friday night. The final
score in Boyette Stadium was Bears 35,
Indians 6. This adds another game to the
Bears winning streak in this series with
Chiefland.
The Bears started the game by opting to
receive the ball from Chiefland. The Indians
Held the Bears in the first series forcing the
,Bears to punt. The punt was recovered by the
:Bears on the one yard line. A hand off from
-Osteen to Scott resulted in a touchdown and
the Bears put six on the board. Cassidy
booted the extra point with a perfect kick and
the Bears lead 7-0. The first quarter ends with
the Bears holding the Indians scoreless.
The second quarter had Dixie County
-dropping what was intended as a pass, but
tirednd out to be a lateral, Chiefland picks it
.up as a fumble and the Bears stand by and
watch, as Chiefland drops six points on the
board. The second quarter brought numerous
penalties against the Bears, but by the last
five minutes they had corrected their
deficiencies and score again, adding 7 more
points to lead 14-6 at the half.
Dixie County started the second half by
kicking off to the, Indians. The Bears held
Chiefland for a loss of yards with back to
back tackles by Tyler Music, Bud Wessels
and Jacob Evans. The Bears took the ball over
after a short punt return by AJ Land.
Kameron Keen stepped up at the QB position
and hands the ball off to Scott in the third
play of the series. Scott makes the
touchdown, only to have it called back by a
penalty against the Bears, making it one
penalty per down for Dixie County. Dixie
was forced to punt. The Bear defense stopped
any offensive drive by the Indians. DC
regains possession on downs and worked
toward the goal. The Indians stop the Bear
offense and they take over on downs. Jerrell
Tyson and Cory Land defeat the Indian line
for the next four downs allowing no forward
progress. The Quarter ends with the Bears
holding the ball looking to score, which they


do on the third down. Keen as QB, again
hands the ball off to Scott. Rodney makes it
look easy adding another 6 points to the DC
side. Cassidy holds up his end of the deal and
adds the extra point with another perfect field
goal. The Bears now lead 21-6 with 11:42 left
to play.
The Bear defense continued to prove its
worth during the next Indian possession. With
Cory Land sacking the quarterback, the whole
Dixie defensive line putting pressure on the
Indians offense, causing them to make
mistakes and generally having their way with
the Indians. The pressure really started to
show with five minutes left in the game, the
Bears using the Keen-Scott combination,
drive another touchdown into the books.
Cassidy rockets another ball out of the
stadium for the extra point making the score
28-6. Cory Land goes on the hunt again for
the Indian quarterback with a sack and forced
fumble, he recovers it for a defensive score.
Cassidy gets the job done again, adding
another ball to Belly Deep Creek making the
score 35-6. This pretty well wraps it up for
the Bears and the Indians go back across the
river with a huge loss.
Coach Wilkerson told the team he was
proud and that they had all played with heart
and guts. He commented that the defense
played as good as it has played in a long time.
"Our defense made tackles, had some key
sacks and I'm real proud of them, they did a
superb job. I felt our defense controlled the
line of scrimmage and our secondary
performed well. We still need some offensive
work and we will work on this next week. If I
had to name stand out players tonight, I
would have to say they were all good." The
coach also looked ahead at next week's game,
"Newberry is good, and we will need to have
our head in the game because Newberry
probably has the most improved team in the
district."
The players to watch next week, Cory
Land and VanAernam on defense and AJ
Land, Karmeron Keen and of course Rod
Scott on offense. Support the Bears next week
against Newberry.. .GO BIG RED!

Markell Harris catches a pass from Cord Hart to score 6for the Bears.


By John Kelley
Dixie County High School JV football
team lived up to its motto Thursday night
when they thoroughly beat the Chiefland
Indians at Boyette Stadium in Cross City. The
JV team played with determination and by the
end of the game posted an impressive win of
44-0. The Bears had a little trouble holding on
to the ball throughout the game, but easily
overcame these mistakes as they steadily
increased the score.
The Bears scored first with a safety in the
end zone for 2. Then, in the first of a series
downs, in the last minutes of the first quarter,
Stephen Godbolt returned a kickoff for forty
yards to rack up 6 points. Hart, as
quarterback, added two more with the extra
point conversion and the Bears closed the first
quarter 10-0.,
At the start of the second quarter, after a
turn-over to the Bears on downs, Hart handed
off to Godbolt who scored again. Hart
fumbles, recovers and passes to Neno Aiken
for the extra 2 points and the Bears marched
on 18-0. At this point the Bears are on fire
and two plays later, Tevon Henderson
recovered a fumble and set up a pass play
from Hart to Markell Harris for 6 more,
increasing the score 24-0. The Bears kicked
off to the Indians and on the second down the
Bears recovered a fumble on their own 45
yard line. On a pass play from Hart to Harris
let the Bears score again. This time a penalty,
on the Bears called the play back. Ryan
Tompkins was the go-to-guy and with a run
up the middle scored 6 more for the Bears.


/ :'


After a deep kick to the Indians, Harris
dropped the receiver at the 29 yard line.
Another interception and run by Harris put
the Bears well out of reach, 36-0. Donald
Anderson steps up as quarterback, pitched the
ball back to Godbolt for the conversion, 38-0.
Henderson kicked another deep ball to
Chiefland to around the 5 yard line and the
Indians brought it to the 19 yard line, where
they were stopped by a host of Bears. On the
first down Travis Pierce stripped the ball
away at the 25 yard line closing out the
quarter, leaving the Indians scoreless.
The second half started in the rain and
Dixie's scoring drive is slowed down and it
takes them 6 plays to score again! Pierce
danced into the end zone to make the score
44-0. The Bears allow the Indians more ball-
time throughout the final quarter of the game,
but pretty well punished the Chiefland
offense with a strong defensive stand,
allowing little yardage. Stand out tackles for
the Bears include Kyle Skelly, Eric Dix, and:
Cameron Paige. With two minutes left to play:
the Bears fumbled and the Indians recovered
On the next play the Indians fumbled and the'
Bears recovered. The game ended with the-
Bears winning 44-0.
After the game Coach Hope expressed to
the team that they worked hard and,the team
that plays together stays together. He told the
JV boys to keep encouraging each other and
they would continue to do well.
Congratulations to the JV team and Coaches
for a fine victory. GO BEARS!

for
DIXIE COUNTY
COMMISSIONER-
DI STRICT 2
"For the people and by the people "

My name is Marvin Hunt. I am the son Hazel Pyle of Cross City and the late P. K. Hunt. My wife
Phyllis Stephenson Hunt, is the daughter of the late Wilmer and the Bertha Stephenson of the First
District. I am a candidate for County Commissioner District 2 in Dixie County, Florida. I would like to
take this time and opportunity to thank the people of Dixie County for your time and concerns.
I am a native resident of Dixie County. My wife Phyllis and I have raised three kids here, two
sons, Aric & Derrick and a daughter, Arica Bethea. We are now blessed with two grandchildren,
Bailey Bethea and Brittany Hunt. We are also blessed with a lot of family and friends in Dixie County.
We love Dixie County and the people. We are also concerned about the future of Dixie County.
I've been self-employed for 28 years. I have worked with residents all over the local area in
helping them achieve their goals with integrity, fairness and honesty. My work is in different types of
construction, which gives me the opportunity to work with different engineers, inspectors, contractors,
employees and homeowners.
I am seeking this office because I have a desire to work in County Government. I also see a need
for a different type of representation. I have the desire and energy to work for the People and by the
People of Dixie County. I will continue to visit all areas of the county. If chosen for this position,
I will work hard for the people and by the people of Dixie County.
Dixie County does not need to change their integrity, just plan for the future.
Dixie has something for everyone.
.As a commissioner, I will work hard for the people and by the people of Dixie County to
better understand your goals and concerns. I will be a team player, working with other
commissioners to do the best for the people in the areas of concern.
Planning for the growth and future as a resident and family man, I would like to see our
kids getting jobs in the local area, rather than having to leave home to make a living. Jobs
and industry is a priority. I will seek this as a commissioner.
I also understand the need to protect and preserve the area. The recreation that comes
from our rivers, coast, and timberland gives us the camping, hunting, boating and fishing
that so many of us love.
On November 7, VOTE MARVIN HUNT COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 2.
But most of all vote, and vote your conscience and feel free at anytime to pray for me and
my family that I make the right decision for the betterment of Dixie County and the people.
I would like to thank the people of Horseshoe Beach and Suwannee for allowing
me to participate in their political rallies. I regret that I was not able to speak at the
political rally in the First District at the Community Center. I will not be allowed to
speak at the Old Town and Jean Community Centers, nor the Cross City, City Park
rallies. The chairperson for the democratic committee has informed me that I will not
be able to participate in these rallies. Therefore, I am putting my speech, stating my
issues and concerns regarding Dixie County in the Dixie County Advocate, in hopes
that every one will read it. If you know someone that does not get the Advocate,
please read yours to them. I want everyone in Dixie County to have a chance to hear
my speech. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at (352) 542-
8779. Thank You!

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, AUGU


Relay For Life of Dixie County

Informational Meeting
Cross City, Florida The American Cancer Society, Tri-
County Unit will be hosting an event on September 19th, 2006 at
the Cross City Rehab Center in Cross City at 5:30 PM. Please join
us for this meeting to learn more about the 2007 Relay For Life in
Dixie County. We are in need of volunteers who have a sincere
passion for fighting cancer in their community. It is truly a
rewarding volunteer experience for people of any age!
Questions/RSVP: Jamie Bellamy, ACS staff: 1-888-295-6787 x
119.
Relay Facts:
1. The Relay For Life is the nations #1 fundraising event, helping to fund
much needed research, patient advocacy, community education and
services for our cancer patients.
2. There are more Relay For Life sites around the country than there are
Wal-Marts and Starbucks!
3. Last year, Relay For Life events raised a total of over $20 million in the
state of Florida!
4. Currently, I out of 100 people in the U.S. participate in Relay For Life.
Relay Synopsis:
Relay For Life is an 18 hour overnight event honoring the fight that
cancer patients struggle while going from diagnosis to remission. It is a
team event where groups from all over the community take part in
fundraising activities before and during the event. Teams of 10-15 people
walk, run or jog one at a time around the track, ensuring that a member of
their team is walking at all times. Teams set up booths where they sell
various food and drink items, crafts, chance drawings and games. There is
always lots of family friendly entertainment and fun all night long.
Cancer survivors from around the community are invited to take part
in the opening lap where we honor them with a shirt and a reception in
their honor. At dusk, we hold a memorial ceremony where we honor those
that have passed away from cancer and those that have survived. Candles
are lit and placed within white bags that line the track in their honor.
Relay History:
Relay For Life began as one man's battle against cancer and a journey
to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society. In May 1985, Dr.
Gordy Klatt walked, jogged, and ran for 24 hours around a track in
Tacoma, Wash. His run alone raised $27,000. Twenty-one years later,
Relay has grown to more than 4,500 sites around the country. All of the
money raised goes to our mission of saving lives through research,
advocacy, patient services and education.
How the American Cancer Society benefits your
community:
Provided over $11,000 in mileage reimbursement and pain medication
assistance to cancer patients.
Provided free housing at the three Florida Hope Lodges for 9 cancer
patients

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
--a HEAD LICE

1 r m PROCEDURES
TO CHANGE
IN SCHOOLS
S*, The philosophy of dealing
with head lice by the health
community has changed. Head
lice infestation is common in the
Superintendent of Schools United States among children 3
Dennis W. Bennett to 12 years of age;
approximately 6 to 12 million have infestations each year. Head
lice are not considered a health hazard by the health community
because they are not responsible for the spread of any disease.
Head lice usually survive for less than one day away from the scalp'
at normal room temperature. Head lice nymphs would need to find
a source of blood for feeding within hours of hatching. Only items
such as clothing, furniture, or carpeting that have been in contact
with the head of the person with infestation 24 to 48 hours before
treatment should be considered for cleaning.
The school district will not set up large scale class checks for
head lice, but instead will focus on individuals who show
symptoms of louse infestation. The following is a summary of
how schools will deal with head lice.
SUMMARY OF HEAD LICE CONTROL
1. Identify the child with head lice.
2. Remove child from classroom (not to return to class until
satisfactorily treated and rechecked by clinic aide with no live
louse present).
3. Check brothers and sisters and notify other schools in the
county if infested child has brothers and sisters in those schools.
4. Notify parent of the need to exclude the student until
treatment has begun and the student is free of live louse. Send
student home with parent and provide copy of head lice
information letter.
5. If parent cannot be notified, child may return to class:if
small number of lice present. If numerous lice present, child may
remain in clinic until end of the day and teacher will send work to
clinic.
6. If numerous lice present, do head checks on close contacts
(best friend, students who sit close to index case). Check all
siblings who attend school.
7. To assure proper follow-up of identified students,
maintain a Pediculosis Control Program Log listing the student's
name, screening/re-screening dates, and date head lice were
discovered.
READMITTANCE OF STUDENTS
Students sent home for treatment of head lice will be
readmitted only when they are accompanied by a parent, guardian,:.,
or other responsible adult. They will not be permitted to ride the
school bus until cleared by the school.
Trained staff will carefully examine the hair and scalp of
returning students and conduct a follow-up head check within 7 to
10 days of the first treatment. If head lice are present, the students
shall not be admitted.
If a large number of children are infested, the principal may
send a letter to all parents. This alerts parents to the problem so
that they can check their children at home.

Norman Stephenson, former LCCC District Board of Trustees member
(front right) supervises the famous pork chop lunch, as the "fabulous
four" ready the meal.

LAKE CITY, Fla. This fall Lake City Community College
(LCCC) began its 59th year of educating the students from its five-
county district comprised of Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and
Union counties. To welcome back LCCC professors and staff,
Norman Stephenson, Union County resident and former LCCC
trustee, treated them to the now "famous" pork chop luncheon.
Stephenson and his "right hand cooks" better known as "the
fabulous four," prepared inch thick smoked pork chops, along with
green beans, dirty rice, rolls and drinks. The two long lines of
hungry employees were served by LCCC student ambassadors in
the Howard Gymnasium.
This is a much anticipated activity that LCCC employees look
forward to each year. The college appreciates the generosity of
Stephenson and his crew for a smoking good job" well done!

Tobacco Education And Prevention
Program. In order to protect people,
especially youth, from health hazards of
using tobacco, including addictive
disorders, cancer, cardiovascular diseases,
and lung diseases; and to discourage use
of tobacco, particularly among youth, a
portion of the money that tobacco
companies pay to the State of Florida
under the Tobacco Settlement each year
shall be used to fund a comprehensive
statewide tobacco education and
prevention program consistent with
recommendations of the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as
follows:
(a) Program. The money appropriated
pursuant to this section shall be used to
fund a comprehensive statewide tobacco
education and prevention program
consistent with the recommendations for

be designed to be effective at achieving
these goals and shall include, but need not

advertising, with no limitations on any
individual advertising medium utilized; and
which shall be funded at a level equivalent
to one-third of each total annual
appropriation required by this section;

programs to educate youth about tobacco
and to discourage their use of it, including,
but not limited to, programs that involve
youth, educate youth about the health
hazards of tobacco, help youth develop
skills to refuse tobacco, and demonstrate
to youth how to stop using tobacco;
(3) programs of local community-based
partnerships that discourage the use of
tobacco and work to educate people,
especially youth, about the health hazards
of tobacco, with an emphasis on programs
that involve youth and emphasize the
prevention and cessation of tobacco use;
(4) enforcement of laws, regulations, and
policies against the sale or other provision
of tobacco to minors, and the possession
of tobacco by minors; and
(5) publicly-reported annual evaluations
to ensure that moneys appropriated
pursuant to this section are spent properly,
which shall include evaluation of the
program's effectiveness in reducing and
preventing tobacco use, and annual
recommendations for improvements to
enhance the program's effectiveness,
which are to include comparisons to similar
programs proven to be effective in other
states, as well as comparisons to CDC
Best Practices, including amendments
thereto.
(b) Funding. In every year beginning
with the calendar year after voters approve
this amendment, the Florida Legislature
shall appropriate, for the purpose
expressed herein, from the total gross
funds that tobacco companies pay to the
State of Florida under the Tobacco
Settlement, an amount equal to fifteen
percent of such funds paid to the State in
2005; and the appropriation required by
this section shall be adjusted annually for
inflation, using the Consumer Price Index
as published by the United States
Department of Labor.
(c) Definitions. "Tobacco" includes,
without limitation, tobacco itself and
tobacco products that include tobacco and
are intended or expected for human use or
consumption, including, but not limited to,
cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, and

Settlement" means that certain Settlement
Agreement dated August 25, 1997, entered
into in settlement of the case styled as

Stipulation of Amendment dated
September 11, 1998; and includes any
subsequent amendments and successor
agreements. "Youth" includes minors and
young adults.
(d) Effective Date. This amendment
shall become effective immediately upon
approval by the voters.

Financial Impact Statement:

government to appropriate approximately
$57 million in 2007 for the Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education and
Prevention Program. Thereafter, this
amount will increase annually with inflation.
This spending is expected to reduce
tobacco consumption. As a result, some
long-term savings to state and local
government health and insurance
programs are probable, but indeterminate.
Also, minor revenue loss to state
government is probable, but indeterminate.

-What do you feel are our county's biggest challenges are today?
-What are your goals for our county?
County Commissioner, District 2
A #1: I am seeking this office because I feel, as so many other Dixie County
residents, that it is time for a change. This is what I've been told over and over, and they
are correct. I use to sit back and listen and watch, but that is really not for me. I want to
get involved and try and help my community with down to basic problems, as well as
--" major issues. I have always been in leadership positions and realize that everyone does
not have this desire. I've always liked a good challenge, and still do. I have several
friends in the community that, for the last two to three years, wanted me to run for office.
Through long prayers and a lot of consideration, my decision was, let's go for it and start
William "Bil" the change. I have no relatives, other than my wife, in the Tri-County area and no
William Bill relatives in public office at this time. I have lived in Florida most of my entire life, except
Dampier (D) when in the military form 1968 to 1971, and served in Vietnam in 1969 and 1970 and
over 3,000 hours flying combat missions. My wife and I are active in the church and the American Legion.
A #2: My qualifications consist of honest and caring for my community, whether you have two dollars or
two million dollars. It doesn't matter to me you are still a Dixie County resident. I've been dealing with the
general pubic for over forty years and have over 30 years of management experience. I have had as many as 47
employees working for me at one time. I have experience in profit and loss sheets and understanding repair
orders, maintenance scheduling, supply reports, and invoicing. I have seventeen years plus experience in over
the road tractor and trailer, dump trucks, garbage trucks, loaders, also maintenance and sales experience. I am
familiar with most types of legal forms, since I have been a Notary Public since 1980. I majored in Business
Management in college, but already had hands-on experience long before. I have always been a quick learner
and am confident I will grasp the standard basics quickly, and then push forward to future projects.
A #3: Some of the concerns for public safety and health, due to water problems in different areas of the
county, even though we're told the water is safe to drink, that doesn't mean we like the smell or the taste and
stains it leaves. I realize this is only in certain areas. We need t locate more EMS stations where they are
needed; examples, in Suwannee and Horseshoe Beach areas. We have road conditions which create excessive
dust in a lot of areas which can contribute to health problems and expenses to residents' private vehicles, which
in turn costs more money out of tax payers' pockets. Now let's discuss taxes. It's a sad day then elderly senior
citizens that are on fixed incomes, have to sell out and, in some cases, have to move from the county when their
taxes are doubled and even tripled, and they can't afford it. There are solutions to these problems, not just an
answer "okay, just let's raise the taxes". We have young people leaving every year because of lack of jobs.
We need some large businesses to take a good look at Dixie County for growth. The young people are, and will
be, our county's future leaders. Can we afford t lose them? There are so many issues, and many are not
complicated or expensive to the county to resolve. Let's resolve them!
A #4: My goals, and should be everyone's goals, which of course will bring a large issue of debate, is to
establish a tax program that is affordable t each and every individual. I do have a very feasible program hat can
and should cut total dependency on Dixie County residents for county money. It will take total commitment of
all commissioners, and I feel strongly, should not fail. Next to set up a program that would relieve senior
citizens of part, or even all, school taxes if over 62 or 65 to be discussed; and by no means let any individual on
fixed income lose their home because of property taxes. There are a couple of options to this problem. Establish
EMS stations where they are needed, no debate, do it! Who knows you could be the one who needs them!
Roads I know it's not possible to pave every road, but at least bring in more limestone when needed, except
mainly on elections years. How many times can you push limestone dust around? We should, and can, establish
a more personal relationship between county resident and commissioner meetings, instead of answers like no,
not at this time. Even a 24 hour hotline with ideas and problems from the residents. Who knows your idea
might work. We need a more open-door policy, not an attitude of "our way only." We should cease in programs
that benefit a handful of people and create large spending for the county (no exceptions). Folks, not all the goals
can be listed because some just he too much detail to go into. Dixie County residents with Board of
'ommissioners can achieve these goals, not one individual. Don't you think it's time to change? I DO! God
bless all Dixie Courity residents.
Your candidate William."Bill" Dampier for County Commissioner, District 2
A #1: I feel that my past experience serving as District 2 County Commissioner has
provided me with the knowledge and leadership skills needed to serve our county.
A #2: Prior service, knowledge in areas of day-today operations of county
commission prior service on various county and state governmental boards, a lifetime
Sof knowledge of Dixie County's geographical arid environmental issues.
A #3: Population growth, availability of water and sewer services, new industry,
renovating existing and construction of new community buildings, paving highly
populated roads.
A #4: Hospital established in the Tri-County area and bringing new industry to the
Alton J. Land county.
(D) Thank you Alton J. Land for County Commissioner, District 2
County Commissioner, District 4
A #1: I have always wanted to be a Commissioner since I was a teenage. This yaer I
ahd my opportunity and decided to give it my best shot.
A #2: I worked 28 years for the Orange County Comptroller. With my knowledge, I
could have run for the Clerk of Court, but my dream has always been to be a
Commissioner. I know from my experience what is expected from a Commissioner and I
will do my best to serve the people of Dixie.
A 3#: Working to build the trust of the people. Working hard with the people of
Dixie and the other Commissioners to become focused on a program to "sell our county"
as an excellent lace t locate new industries o they will realize that they have a future in
Dixie. All Commissioners must work for the good of Dixie. Look to the positive side of A. Bo
all issues and weigh the good and the bad. Be well informed before I vote on an issue Jane A. Boyd
A #4:1 I promise to be dedicated, truthful and loyal to all of Dixie. I hope to build our (D)
economy with industries and more jobs. I hope to be able to help more people with low income, get housing. I
promise when I am elected I will find out why the gas prices fluctuate in our county.
Thank you Jane A. Boyd, seeking County Commission Seat, District 4
A #1: I ran for County Commissioner in 1994 after first understanding the needs for
Sthe County's business being run in a manner that would address the critical needs of the
'' county in a fair and forth right manner. We need to prioritize those core areas of concern,
Switch a plan that would bring about the best results for our citizens. Our basic needs, such
as ambulance and fire protection needs our utmost attention as did road for safe travel.
One of the attributes I wanted to bring to the table was the ability to get people involved
i in the solution to problems. I believe that when people work together towards a common
goal, the outcome is obtained quickly and to the satisfaction of all. Realizing that if I
were elected I would carry only one vote, I saw the importance of listening to the pubic
Jh L and then finding a way to make the Commissioners like-minded in addressing a problem;
D hnD yet maintaining the importance of each Commissioner's independent thinking and
Driggers (D) problem solving.
A #2 & 3: With limited financial resources, it is imperative that we are frugal with taxpayers money. Our
needs are many, and require that we address our challenges in priority in order to ensure the best use of our
scarce dollars. Some of the important challenges we face are state and federal mandates that don't provide
funding. Funding sources many times are internal and we have to share those resources without compromising
service to the public. Public safety in our home, on the road and from natural disasters are ever present and wee
must meet those challenges with both personnel and by seeing the county, state and federal rules and regulations
are carried out properly. We must lead by example. As Commissioners, we pass rules and regulations and we
expect County personnel to carry out those rules in a fair and equitable way. As Florida and Dixie County
grows and changes, we must be able to adapt to those changes and maintain a level of service to a standard that
you expect as a taxpayer.
A #4: As for my goals for Dixie County, I am encouraged by the input I have received about this County's
growth going forward. Like you, I realize that growth in the county is inevitable, but we can move forward by
taking logical steps that will insure success. We have always enjoyed a rural lifestyle with abundance of
recreational activities, including two great rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. Others from throughout the great State
of Florida and nation are finding what we have known all along... that Dixie County offers many opportunities.
My goal is to continually ask for your input on matters you feel important. I know that as we grow as a County
and in population the challenge to provide basic health, human and pubic services will be great. I accept the


challenges and the goal of making sure your tax dollars are spent wisely and in a way that will make all county
services readily available to ALL CITIZENS.
Thank you John L. Driggers, District 4 County Commissioner Candidate
A #1: I decided to run for the position of County Commissioner because of my love
,and true concern about our county and the residents of Dixie.
A # 2: I feel that my character, honesty, personal values, willingness to serve, and
i k .: the desire to improve, are all attributes that will help me to serve the people of Dixie
County. Having worked in and experienced the changes in two of the largest industries
in the county, I believe I have the ability to analyze and understand the importance of
"..\ making a good decision.
.. A #3: One of the biggest challenges facing our county is the need to make our
county favorable to new business and industry that will provide employment to our
Mickey "Troy" residents and graduates while maintaining a quality of life that we are accustomed.
Johnson (No A #4: My goal is to serve ALL residents of Dixie County equally and honestly. To
Party) seek new business and industries that will not have a negative impact on our
environment, monitor closely the impact that community growth will have on our
residents, attend training and workshop programs, work together with other commissioners and county officials
in order to meet county wide goals and needs.
Thank you Mickey "Troy" Johnson Candidate for County Commissioner, Dist. 4


Clerk of Court
A #1: Working as Clerk Joe Hubert Allen's Assistant, I had the opportunity to assist
first hand the citizens of Dixie County. I take pride in my job and enjoy helping people.
I also enjoy the reward of a satisfied customer's smile. I had already been thinking of
running for the position in the 2008 election when Mr. Allen announced his retirement,
causing this special election for a 2-year term. It was with much prayer I resigned my
position in the Clerk's office, with no promise to be re-hired if I am unsuccessful, to run
for Clerk of Courts. This position needs a strong honest person with credibility and
dedication to the job. I have these characteristics and know that I will be a good Clerk. I
loved my work in the Clerks office. I simply want to serve as your Clerk of Courts to '.
assure that you have the best of everything that can be offered.
A #2: I will bring to the job 30 years of work experience and feel that my advantage Carla B.
over the other candidates is a history of working in several counties and states in other Downing (D)-
lines of work. My qualifications include my 2001/06 experiences in the clerk's office'
consisting of handling phone calls, correspondence, notification of reports and upcoming events for the Clerk
and preparing the agenda, taking and recording minutes, handling resolutions and ordinance records, and
correspondence for the Board of County Commission. Also, tax deeds applications, recording of official
records, marriage licenses, county court procedures, small claims, assisting customers with official records,
certifying and notarizing documents, and Value Adjustment Board proceedings. In 1988/89 I worked for Mr.
Allen and prepared payroll for the Road Department, filed workers compensation claims, was the insurance
clerk and kept inventory for property records for the Board of County Commissioners. My experience also
includes 8 years of banking with the majority served as a bank teller with First Federal of Florida in Cross City
and Bronson. Two years I served as a Trust Operations Specialist for United Carolina Bank in North Carolina,"
handling custodial accounts worth millions of dollars in stocks and bonds. I served as a bookkeeper and later-.
was promoted to office manager for a real-estate company. My attributes include honesty, integrity,
accountability, and the ability to keep a confidence. As a pastor's wife, people rely on me to listen and keep
their confidences. I love people and want to serve them as Clerk of Court.
A #3: The most notable challenge is space. The Clerk will be acquiring additional office space in the near
future, which is a blessing, but the solution is to utilize the space already in the Clerks hands. This also includes
parking space. I will have my employee's park in the rear of the courthouse in order to allow more parking for
customers. Next, services that are to be provided by the clerk's office and the few employees that are there to
provide them is a constant challenge. The influx of work the clerk's office has seen over the past several years
and the few employees' that are employed by the Clerk is a problem that needs looking into. There is a
stigmatism that there are too many employees in the clerk's office, but you need to look at the caseload increase.
and the number of recorded documents over the past few years and eyes will be opened.
A #4: From the beginning of my campaign my mind is set on cross-training each employee. It is an
injustice to the public to come into the clerk's office to be told they cannot be helped and they will have to come
back. This will take some time to implement but it will be done if I am elected. Also, the office will be
arranged to better serve the public and employees with my main goal to have an area of privacy for conducting.
issues of domestic violence and other matters requiring privacy. I will also implement employee and office
policies, creating an atmosphere that will better serve the public with kindness and consideration for all.
Thank you Carla B. Downing, Candidate for Clerk of Court
.. ... .. A #1: I decided to run for the position of Clerk of Court because I enjoy working
with the public and I feel am the most qualified person for the job.
A #2: My qualifications that make me the best choice for the position of Clerk of-
Court include 17 years of continuous hands-on experience fin the Clerk's office. I earned
a 2 year AA degree from Lake City Community College in 1990. I have attended
numerous conferences, training classes and seminars since 1993, to enrich my ability to
'. better serve the citizens of Dixie County. I have worked in all areas of the Clerk's Office
including official records, small claims court, circuit and county criminal courts, traffic
infractions, child support, bookkeeping, tax deed and foreclosure sales, typing and
Dana Cannon recording county commission minutes and correspondence and I supervised the daily
Johnson (D) operations of the Clark's Office since October 1999.
A #3: The challenges I see facing the Clerk's office now is office space and cross
training of the deputy clerks. My goals include more office space for the staff, records and public. The
courthouse is currently under construction and one of my first goals is to get into the new space and the old
space re-organized. Another goal is to assure the cross-training is complete and kept up to date. There have been
a lot of changes during the past several months and the Clerk's Association in Tallahassee provides training for
new deputy clerks and refresher courses as well.
A #4: The changes I will make in the Clerk's Office aside from office space and cross training include a
user-friendly website that is kept up to date with our latest court information, tax deed and foreclosure sale
information and links to other vital county records such as recent land sales and taxes paid through the property'
appraiser and tax collector's office. The website will also include historical records such as deeds, marriage.
licenses, and civil and criminal indexes. I will house the latest computer software that will allow the citizens of
Dixie County to access our pubic records with the touch of a button.
Thank you for your consideration Dana Cannon Johnson, Clerk of Court Candidate
.~ 4 A #1: I decided to run for the office of Clerk of Court because I have known for a -
"" long time that I wanted a public service job. When Mr. Joe Hubert Allen decided to.
retire, I stared talking with people and listening to their needs and concerns for the clerk's.
S office. After doing extensive research on the position that I would be running for, I,
decided that I could help the people of Dixie County and make a difference in the Clerk
". ." of Courts Office.
A #2: I feel that I could be the best choice for the Clerk of Court because I am a
working man and a people person; someone who cares for you and your problems big or.
small. Someone who treats everyone equally and with dignity. Someone who will help
David you when you need it. I attended Lake City Community College where I was perusing a7.
"Red-O" degree in criminal justice I also completed FDLE standards for the Department of
O'Steen (D) Corrections, Correctional Officers Training. I also have 295 class hours of additional
training. I have worked in management for the last 23 years, so this gives me the.
experience that I would need to have the ability to run the Clerk of Court Office.
A #3: Space and to have employees cross trained
A #4:1 I would make the office a more people friendly office. I will get a website that is more efficient. I will-
have a clerk on duty 7 days a week 24 hours a day for your emergency needs. I will have a daily log where all 2'
transactions in the clerk's office is recorded. I personally will be a working clerk, where I will be available for'->
you.
Thank you David "Red-O" O'Steen, Candidate for Clerk of Court

Coast Guard
Asks Boaters
To Stay Off
Water
The Coast Guard would
like to warn boaters of possible
tropical storm conditions in the
area of Tampa, Fla., and is
reminding the public of these
important safety messages:
Stay off the water. Boaters
are urged to heed to weather
watches, warnings and small
craft advisories. As search and
rescue equipment is secured
during the storm, there may be
longer than usual response
times.
Secure your belongings.
Owners of larger boats are
urged to move their boats to
inland marinas where they will
be less vulnerable to breaking
free of their moorings or
damage. Smaller boats should
be pulled from the water and
stored in a place that is not
prone to flooding. Those who
are leaving their boats in the
water are reminded to secure
life rings, life jackets and small
boats. These items, if not
secured properly, can break
free and require valuable
search and rescue resources be
diverted to ensure they are not
actually people in distress.
Stay clear of beaches and
low-lying areas. Even the best
swimmers can fall victim to
the strong waves and rip
currents caused by heavy
weather.
Swimmers are urged to
stay clear of beaches until local
officials say the water is safe.
Residents are encouraged to
heed local evacuation warnings
and orders due to flooding that
can sometimes be associated
with large amounts of rain.
Stay informed. The public
should monitor the progress


and strength of storms through
local television, radio and
Internet. Boaters can monitor
its progress on VHF radio
channel 16. Information can
also be obtained on small craft
advisories and warnings on
VHF radio channel 16.
The Coast Guard
recommends that boaters take
the necessary precautions to
secure their vessel and
reconsider plans to get
underway.

Citizens of Dixie County:


I want to thank you for allowing me to visit with you in your homes and for talking with
me about your concerns for our county as I have campaigned throughout the county
during the past few months. Your needs and concerns are very important to me and if
you allow me to continue to serve as your District 2 County Commissioner, I will work
with you to meet your needs and resolve many of the issues you have voiced to me.

While serving as District 2 County Commissioner, I have always been available to listen
to you and to help you resolve any problems that you may have. Considering what is best
for the people and for the county as a whole, I have always voted my conscience on
issues that come before the Board. I have worked with the other Commissioners to
utilize federal, state and local dollars to improve, repair, renovate and construct new
public facilities, roads, recreational areas and to improve drainage of some of the
county's wetland areas and purchase new emergency services and fire vehicles and
equipment.

I have always been and will continue to be a staunch supporter of the County Health
Department and the much needed health services they provide to children in our school
system.

I have always and will continue to support the youth of our county in the areas of
athletics, education and agriculture. I will continue to support new facility construction
and upgrades to existing facilities for activities for our youth.

I will continue to be supportive of the needs of the elderly and handicapped in our
county.

I will seek ways to add new industry to increase the workforce and decrease
unemployment in our county.

I humbly ask for your support in the upcoming primary election on September 5th. When
you go to the polls to vote, vote for:

-* Dedication
-* Honesty and Fairness

-> Proven Leadership
-+ Experience
-+ Equal Representation
