By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last Saturday, September 2nd, 2006 Dixie Sheriffs Deputies
responded to a call at the Old Town Tavern where a theft had taken
place in one of the vehicles parked there. The suspect and her
accomplice were later found at another local bar that same day and
arrested.
According to a report filed by DSO Deputy Mark Garcia, a
loaded 380 semi automatic pistol had been stolen from a truck
owned by Gerald Olrourke of Old Town. Olrourke had seen the
suspect and gave a description of her to Garcia. He was also able
to identify the name of a male suspect that was with her as well as
another female suspect who was later found not be involved in the
incident.
It was Cathleen Spencer, 51, of New Port Rickey that was
identified as the one who went into Olrourke's truck and allegedly
took the gun. Spencer gave the gun to Guy Ricard Curtis, 40, of
Old Town to try and sell. The two were found at Charlie's Bar


outside of Cross City.

FOX News team released-but "unharmed"?
Last month, FOX News correspondent Steve Centanni and
freelance cameraman Olaf Wiig were captured by Islamic militants
While covering events in Gaza. They were held for 13 days and, at
least according to news reports, later released "unharmed."
Like everyone else, I was glad to see the captives turned loose.
Covering news in a war zone is inherently dangerous. Bombs and
rockets don't discriminate, but hostage-taking is a fascist tactic (let
those who object to the term "Islamic fascists" take note) and tells
us a lot about the people who do it. This particular terrorist
contingent call themselves the "Holy Jihad Brigades," a newcomer
to the ranks of Islamic fascism, and apparently not too skilled in
their hostage-taking priorities, as their demands for the release of
all Islamic terrorists (no, they didn't use that term) held by the
United States went unheeded after Palestinian big shots demanded
the news team's release.
On the other hand, I would take issue with the contention that
Centanni and Wiig were released "unharmed." They were forced
Into a car, blindfolded, handcuffed and taken to an abandoned
garage, where they were held for nearly two weeks. During that
Time, they were forced to make pro-terrorist propaganda state-
:ments, dress up like their camel-riding captors, accept Islamic
names and even profess a conversion to Islam.
As for their "conversion," it should be noted that if one is to
convert to Islam, there had to be a starting point. In other words,
where were you before you converted? I have no idea as to the prior
religious preferences of Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, but
somehow I have serious doubts that there was any sincerity in their
"conversion" to Islam. As Steve pointed, out, when there's a gun
pointed at your head, you do what you gotta do.
Incidentally, if you're saying you'd become a martyr before
you'd even mouth an insincere conversion to Islam, don't criticize
a man before you've walked a mile in his shoes, or in this case sat
: handcuffed and blindfolded in a secluded location with a gun up to
Your head.
Steve did go on to say that he had "a great deal of respect" for
Islam. At first, that seemed a little hard to figure. My first
inclination upon being released would have been to go on TV with
a ham sandwich in one hand and a beer in the other and express
the opinion that Mohammed practiced same-sex bestiality with
pigs.
What Steve Centanni has done is, of course, the smart thing. I
2 doubt that he will be enrolling at the local mosque, but neither is
he, personally, trashing Islam, nor is Olaf Wigg. This is simply to
protect any western journalists who might be kidnapped some-
: where down the line-something that's undoubtedly going to
happen sooner or later.
What needs to be pointed out is that Steve Centanni and Olaf
'Wiig were mistreated at a level comparable to or exceeding that of
prisoners held by American forces at Abu Ghraib prison in
'Baghdad or the Guantanamo facility in Cuba. And Centanni and
Wiig were non-combatants gathering news, whereas the
Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib prisoners were armed combatants not
even covered by the Geneva Convention.
For some reason, our government appears eager to hand out
: prison sentences to guards at our military prisons who do nothing
worse than humiliate captured terrorists, and yet seems willing to
S shrug off the treatment that Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig
received. It would seem more logical if those circumstances were
reversed.

"BOOT DRIVE"
Continued From Page 1

Emergency Management Director Chad Reed stated this is the first in several years which Dixie
County fire fighters have had a boot drive. Crews set up at the intersection of US 19 and CR 351
and began collecting for "Jerry's Kids" around 10:00 am. Within the hour they had collected nearly
$500.00! By the end of the Drive, around dusk, they were given the news they had doubled the
amount collected in past years with a whooping $5,400!
Reed, along with Scott Garner and Darian Brown of the Dixie EMS and Dixie's Honorary Fire
Fighter C.J. Reed, traveled to Gainesville Sunday, September 3rd to deliver the check for the amount
collected to WCJB-TV 20's David Snyder and Amanda Decker. TV 20 is the "home base" for the
Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for our area and covered the annual event over the Labor Day Weekend.
C.J., 5, presented the check to Snyder on behalf of the Dixie EMS; and did an outstanding job!
Nationally the 41st Telethon raised a record $61 million dollars!
EMS Director Chad Reed would like to extend his personal thanks to all of the staff at the Dixie
EMS who helped pulled the Boot Drive together. The staff would like to extend their thanks to
Grumpy's Restaurant for feeding them, as well as to Foodland and Liles Ace Hardware who
provided drinks for the workers throughout the day. A BIG "THANK YOU" goes out to everyone
who helped to fill the boots! Because of your generosity, tens of thousands of individuals and
families who are fighting neuromuscular diseases will benefit through research and medical support.


"BURGLARY"
Continued From Page 1

When deputies tried to talk to Curtis he ran and then after they
caught him and tried to arrest him, Curtis began to wrestle with
deputies. It was while they were wrestling they found he had a
loaded pistol in his front pocket. That gun was later identified as
the stolen gun.
Spencer was located and identified by Olrourke as the one who
took the gun and by Curtis as the one who gave it to him to sell.
Spencer was charged with Burglary/Armed and Dealing In
Stolen Property. Curtis was charged with Possession of Firearm By
A Convicted Felon, Dealing In Stolen Property and Resisting
Arrest With Violence.
As of press time, Tuesday, September 5h, Spencer was still
being held at the Dixie County Jail with bond set at $50,000.
Curtis had been released.

"DEATH"
Continued From Page 1

Investigators will not know the exact cause of death until the
results of the autopsy are released.
According to a report filed by Dixie County Deputies Jamie
King and Chad Reed, it was two other boaters that found 57-year
old, Samuel C. Dennis, floating, face down in the water around
4:00pm on Monday. Dennis' body was found approximately 300
yards from his boat which was located between Bull Cove and
Rocky Creek. The boat was anchored and had a diver down flag
posted. Dennis was still wearing a mask, fins and snorkel.
The United States Coast Guard was the first to receive a call
from the boaters who found the body. Also called was the Florida
Wildlife Commission, who also gave aid at the scene.
The boat and body were taken to the Westwind Fish Camp in
Steinhatchee. A witness from the camp identified Dennis and
stated to investigators that he had seen him heading out in his boat
about 12:00noon earlier that day.
As of press time investigators are calling Dennis's death a
possible drowning until the medical examiner completes his
autopsy report.

I think the next best
thing to solving a prob-

humor in it.
-Frank A. Clark


The Word

Made Flesh
Continued from last week. I, ,
the son of man, say the carnal
mind is where the Mark of the
Beast started in itself in the
beginning. The Mark of the Beast
is your carnal mind. The Mark of
Carnality is the thing that causes
the Beast to rise up in you. If you
weren't carnal you would not be
rising up and doing things that do
not please God. This shows that
carnality entered into the human
race back there in the Garden of
Eden when sin began to show in
the form of transgression. No
longer was God's doing the things
he was commanded to do. This
separated the spirit from the
creature and made him want to
hide from the presence of God.
;, He found himself guilty before
God. I, the son of man, say this
mark of carnality began to be
manifested in the two sons of
Adam and Eve. Cain and Abel. In
bringing their offerings unto the
Lord God, the Lord had more
respect unto Abel's offering than
He did for Cain's. When God did
this, the carnal side of Cain
showed up. It showed up in wrath,
anger, jealousy, and beastly
actions, until it finally brought
about the slaying of Cain's
:brother, Abel.
The beastlike nature in man
,has been present ever since Eve
late of the Tree of Knowledge of
:Good and Evil in the Garden of
'Eden, and a curse was put upon
,,her and her husband, Adam. The
,desire to be better than anyone
else in the sight of God, and to be
,like God through knowledge, was
never permitted from the
'beginning. This nature shows up
e4n moral man all the way through
ihe scriptures, from Genesis to
'2Revelation. Holy men of God
'wrote pertaining to this. It is hard
to think that man is part of the
beast in (Rev. 13:1-18).
(Ecclesiastes 3:18) "I said in
mine heart concerning the estate
,of the sons of men, that God might
*manifest them, and that they might
,see that they themselves are
'beasts". (Psalms 73:22) "So
,foolish was I, and ignorant: I was
.is a beast before thee." (Titus
11:12) "One of themselves, even a
Iprophet of their own, said, the
;'ICretians are always liars, evil
beasts, slow bellies". (II Peter
>2:12) "But these, as natural brute
-'beasts, made to be taken and
,destroyed, speak evil of the things
:'that they understand not; and shall
,utterly perish in their own
corruptionon,
I, the son of man, say (Jude
1:10) "But these speak evil of
i;those things which they know not:
?,but what they know naturally, as
,brute beasts, in those things they
^'corrupt themselves". Continued

Faith Baptist Church News
It was a wonderful day at Faith today. The Spirit was strong
and our crowd was large. We had lots of visitors and it was just a
great day. Bro. Jackie brought two super messages and the special
music was outstanding. Sister Janet O'Steen did the morning
service special singing "The Lighthouse" and in the evening
service our own church instrumental group consisting of Buddy &
Dot Britton, and Kacie Crenshaw did three numbers for us. If you
missed any of the services, you truly missed a blessing.
Brother Buddy did his usual good job with the bible study at
6:00 pm. We appreciate the fine job he does and the work he puts
into studying for this class.
Our Sunday school attendance was up today and our teachers
did their usual good jobs teaching the classes. We have classes for
all ages, so if you haven't been coming to Sunday school, you're
missing a blessing. Come out next week and try it. We feel sure
you'll like it. God will bless you for the extra effort.
As our officers are chosen for the coming year, we urge you to
sign up for whatever job god has given you a talent to do. We need
teachers in a couple of classes yet, and there's something everyone
can do. If God has given you a talent of any kind, use that talent
for Him and he'll bless you for it.
Remember our services next week. We have prayer meeting on
Wednesday night at 7:00 pm, Sunday school next Sunday at 9:45
am, Church at 11:00 am, Bible Study at 6:00 pm, and Evening
services at 7:00 pm. We'll be looking for you. In the coming week,
pray for someone less fortunate, the sick, the ones who have lost
loved ones and especially the lost. Until next week, we love you
and will be looking forward to seeing you at one of the above
services.

Candace Dawn Veach
Well it's now that time of year that the good Lord called on our
loved one to come home. Like I said she's our Angel & we know
it. He had much better plans for her, although she is so very much
missed & loved we have to remember that we will always have our
special & great memories of such a fine beautiful young lady that
she grew up to be.
God knows we'll always hold her dear and never lose sight of
her or the precious years she spent here with us.
Those will never be forgotten. As well as her loving twin who
stands so tall and holds on so tight. God we love you Danielle
Lynn, please keep the faith and let God be with us all each and
everyday. Lord knows as so many prayers go out to Him that we
need Him in our lives always & forever.
May God be with everyone not only in troubled times but
always.
God bless all,
Aunt Adele

New Prospect Baptist News
Thank God for another good day in church Sunday. Our choir
sounded really good, and Bro. Billy did an admirable job of
delivering God's message, choosing his text from Ecclesiastes 2:4-
11. Beautiful day, excellent message, fine fellowship...you cannot
beat that combination!
Our "TeamKID" program got underway Sunday evening,
enrolling boys and girls from three years through kindergarten for
learning about God and His plans for them through Bible
stories, Bible-verse songs, applying Bible-truths to their daily
lives, praying, a variety of art activities, playing Bible-related
recreational games and, something most already know about---
eating snacks.
The Pastor/Deacons will meet on Monday evening, Sept. 11th,
and don't forget our monthly Business Meeting Wednesday
evening, Sept. 13th.
God blessed us with visitors again Sunday, and we hope they'll
return and bring others, as all are welcome at NPBC.
Please pray for those who have lost loved ones recently, as well
as those on the church prayer lists, our military personnel, and our
President and other leaders.
Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"God"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say God is no
respecter of persons. The redemption of all men was planned
before the first man had sinned. Therefore God's plan cannot be
foiled just by your disbelief and refusal to accept it. The unbelief
of some shall not make the faith of God without effect. But love is
a trailblazer, when it is projected itself, it has in a miracle work,
opened up the way for grace to operate. Acts 3:21, "Whom the
heavens must receive until the times of restitution of all things,
which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since
the world began.
I, the Day of the Lord, say do the prophets actually teach that
Christ is to be the Saviour of the whole world? Yes! Of course they
do in many places and ways the truth is presented. But it's as
Christ said, Ye do err not knowing the scriptures". And we might
add, we do often err because we read much of the Word through
previous teaching and doctrine of self-conceived concept. And so
we read the Word with the view towards establishing former
opinions, rather than to gain further revelation and understanding
of it in a more perfect manner as we progress.
I, the Day of the Lord, say the time element for the returning of
Israel to her former estate is marked by the time when Sodom and
Samaria shall also be restored. And we know that all Israel shall be
saved and her restoring will be complete, so also God bound it in
with all other nations. Remember the scripture we presented in the
beginning how that God hath concluded all in unbelief that He
might have mercy upon all? I, the Day of the Lord, say when we
look to Christ we see in Him the fullness of triumph, even though
much of it is yet to be manifested.
Nevertheless, it is sure for we see Jesus. He who has tasted,
death for every man, triumphed over it, and secured ultimate
victory. You say, it seems we are a long way off from such victory.
Don't worry about the distance the gap of time is also bridged in
Christ and time is His servant, not His master. So concrete is this
victory of Christ that He Himself considering the purpose begun,
as done, to the extent that now, "After He had offered one sacrifice
for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God: From
henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool."
Heb. 10:12-13. Victory of victories, He rests secure with the
full knowledge of full triumph. I, the Day of the Lord, say the
forces of the power of resurrection life that were released
following His Calvary Triumph are such that they shall pursue
their course until all things are subdued under Him for He known
the fruitation of it all shall be even as He has purposed. He has not
failed, He is Lord of all, He died for the world, and the world He
shall possess.

Friday night.
By John Kelley
Despite the hype given to
this game, the Dixie County
Bears were able to effectively
shut down the Panther running
game Friday night as they beat
the Newberry Panthers 16 to
14. In a match that had Dixie
pitted against the "most
:improved" team in the area the
-Bears proved that they could
play with determination and
:guts. The Bear defensive squad
'held the Panthers at bay, while
:the offense sent Rod Scott
running for 100 yards and 12
points to his credit. Micah
Cassidy again proved his
worth by putting the first DC
points on the board with a 37-
,_ard field goal and later in the
'fourth quarter with a PAT.
The Bears retained
*possession of the ball for most
iof, the second half, which
'allowed Scott an opportunity
to look for clear lanes through
the Panther defense. Bud
Wessels with a key
interception, stopped a
Newberry scoring drive and
continued to get the job done
making this, his second
interception of the season.
Coach Wilkerson was
very proud of the team telling
them that they played their
hearts out and that they kept on
digging when it got tough. He
remarked, "Tough practice is
what wins games. We were
more conditioned and physical.
We covered number four (of
the Newberry team) and I'm
proud that we were able to
cover him effectively."
There were so many good
plays during the game it is
hard to single out any


12 assists and 10 service
points, Vanessa Hollis had 13
service points and 3 kills,
Miriah Riels had 8 kills, Jaime
VanAernam had 7 service
points, 6 assists and 2 saves,
Kayla Turner had 3 kills, Erica
Sheppard had 2 kills and 9
saves, Britni Robson had 3

JV Bears Lose To Newberry Panthers


Micah Cassidy put the Bears on the scoreboard first
last Friday night with 3-ponts as he booted this 37-
yard field goal.

how it should be when a team
starts to come together and
work as one cohesive unit.
The Bears will play host
to Santa Fe this week at home
and with the Bears now 2-0 for
the season, we are really
looking forward to some tough
games.
Can the Bears keep it
going? I think so...GO BIG
RED!

their fans as they showed

The Dixie County High JV team took a loss
as the Newberry High JV Panthers defeated
them 40 to 20 last Thursday night. The JV
Bears started by kicking off to the Panthers and
allowing. the:,Panthers: to ,score, in the first
minutes of the game. The Bears then responded
by scoring on the second down of their'
possession, as Cord Hart slipped the ball to
Stephen Godbolt for the TD. The Panthers
stopped the Bears from scoring on the
g conversion making the score 8-6.
e The Panthers continued to dominate the
e Bears through the first half by scoring three
It times in the second quarter. The Bears working
e hard, managed a short rally close to the end of
s the game as Hart passed to Markell Harris on a
'd 25yard throw down field. Harris's touchdown
d made the score 34-12 with the Panthers still
holding a considerable lead.
?t Starting the fourth quarter, the Bears
r regained possession of the ball after forcing the
,h Panthers to punt. Some fancy footwork in the
e form of a reverse and a pass completion from
7, Hart to Harris allowed the Bears to score again.

s Dixie Youth League



gs
s


Hart as Quarterback gave the ball to Eric
Dix, who ran it in for the touchdown. Hart then
passed to Tevon Henderson for the conversion
making the score 34-20 with the Bears still
behind. Travis Pierce for the Bears, in the last
minutes of the game, recovered a fumble by the
Panthers. The Bears worked their way down the
field, but allowed the Panthers to intercept a
pass and score again effectively closing the door
on any comeback. The final score was
Newberry 40, Dixie 20.

The JV team certainly had their hands full
with the Panthers. The Panthers came to Boyette
Field with a more experienced team than the
Dixie County JV team faced with Chiefland.
Coach Hope promised that the boys would
come back next week against Chiefland with a
lot more experience. "We'll get better and get
our chance...we'll find a way" he told the team.
GO BEARS!


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin
Florida isn't

just a football

state anymore i

This is a state of football stir-crazies who
pounce on September like it was a winning Lotto
"ticket A state mostly divided into thirds among
the Gators, Seminoles and Hurricanes, two of
whom will dance before a national TV audience
Monday night.
Before Miami and Florida State take the Orange
Bowl field on Labor Day Night, the Florida
Gators start their historic 100th year at "The Swamp" on
Saturday against Southern Mississippi.
: It will have to be a big stage at Florida Field,
because the spotlight will be shared by Urban Meyer and
the former coach of the 1996 national championship
football team, Steve Spurrier, who returns to celebrate with
Some of his former players. But it ought to also be shared
with three special basketball players and their unselfish
coach.
The other night when I attended an upstate function
of 300 Gator enthusiasts, the evening was not about Meyer
in his second-year quest for football supremacy, but about
Billy Donovan and his coaching staff. Donovan got a huge
standing ovation at the Steinbrenner's Ramada Inn on 1-75,
just north of Ocala. It almost brought organizers of the
event to the edge of a guilt trip.
"I love the Gator football team, followed them all
my life," said co-organizer Mack Dunwoody. "But I've got
to tell you I'm even more excited this year about
basketball."
With good reason. When Donovan took the podium,


he outright predicted his 2006-07 would be even better than
last year. Better than the national champions?
"Winning the national championship is not about
being the best team," Donovan told the Ocala Gator Tipoff
Club, on the night they were honoring club founder and ex-

Gator basketballer Augie Greiner. "It's


ow"$


i:' :4' t


about being the best team for six games.
And we will prepare that way. But the
result might not be the same."
Donovan still glows when he talks
about Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Corey
Brewer, his three starters who turned
down millions of NBA dollars to come
back and compete for back-to-back titles.
"I cherish each day I coach these
kids and each day I work with my
coaching staff," Donovan said, "because I


know it will come to an end someday." To prove that,
Donovan turned down a contract extension that would have
raised his salary to $2 million a year. He will get that raise
and extension beyond his three years one day soon and has
no intention of leaving Florida.
However, Donovan was trying to send the right
message to his players: That he was willing to sacrifice,
too.
"I told Jeremy (Foley, athletic director) that I wasn't
trying to be a martyr," Donovan told me, "but I just didn't
feel right about doing this now. You know, you get these
agents who come around and say to your players, 'your
coach is getting his share, why don't you benefit from it,
too?"'
The devils of greed did not win this time, which is
rare in sports. I salute Donovan, Noah, Horford and Brewer
for that. They should never forgotten for winning the
school's first national basketball title, but they should also
be remembered for their selflessness as well, because it
sends a powerful message. Well done, gentlemen.

Golden Bears v. Chiefland Indians at
Branford
The Golden Bears, in their first season game,
lost to the Indians 13-0 Saturday in Branford.
Although they lost the game, Coach Anderson
was still proud and said they played good.
"We made a few mistakes and some fumbles
but for a young team we will continue to
improve and work on correcting our
problems". Offensive standouts for the day
were Travis Pleasant, Jamal Chapman and
Clifford Jackson. The defensive players of the
day were Frank Cooper, Julian Robinson and
Tyler Corbin.
The Bears v. Bucs
The 10, 11 and 12 year old Bears played
the Bucs on Saturday, defeating them 19-7.
The Bears started their scoring drive in the
first quarter when Duke Dawson ran an 80yd
touchdown punt return. The Bucs managed to
hold the Bears through the first half, but the
Bears came out after the half and scored when
Dawson handed off to Mikel Carter for a
60yd touchdown run. The extra point attempt


was made with Dawson handing off to
Shaquille Mitchem who scampered in for the
point. The Bears allowed the Bucs to score
late in the fourth quarter, then, answered that
score with a pass interception by Mikel Carter
who ran it back for the TD. The Bears won
the game 19-7.
Outstanding players for the game were :
Duke Dawson, Mikel Carter for their scoring '
effort and Logan "Chicken Wing" Paige fori
his outstanding tackles and interception.
"Chicken Wing" seemed to be in on every..
key defensive play of the game. Daniel
"Hollywood" Thomas continues to be a
playmaker with QB sacks and defensive
rushing.
Coach Hope commented that the boys
did an outstanding job; they played with,
confidence and fought back when they were'
in a tight position. "When we believe, we win
ball games" he said.
Come out and watch the Bears play and.:-
support youth football in Dixie County. GO.
BEARS!

prostate cancer, as just another illness rather than as the result of their
military service in Southeast Asia.
VA wants these Vietnam veterans to know that they may be eligible
for compensation and health care for certain diseases associated with
Agent Orange, the defoliant sprayed to unmask enemy hiding places in the
jungles throughout Vietnam.
Special health care and compensation benefits are available to the 2.6
million men and women who served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975,
only 3,300 of whom remain in uniform today. Those discharged during
that period are the largest group of veterans receiving VA health care and
monthly compensation.
Yet a small percentage of their disability claims are for illnesses
scientists have listed as being associated with Agent Orange. VA
presumes that all military personnel who served in Vietnam were exposed
to Agent Orange, and federal law presumes that certain illnesses are a
result of that exposure. This so-called "presumptive policy" simplifies the
process of receiving compensation for these diseases since VA foregoes
the normal requirements of proving that an illness began or was worsened
during military service.
Based on clinical research, the following diseases are on VA's Agent
Orange list of presumptive disabilities: chloracne, Hodgkin's disease,
multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, porphyria cutanea tarda,
respiratory cancers (lung, bronchus, larynx and trachea), soft-tissue
sarcoma, acute and subacute peripheral neuropathy and prostate cancer. A
regulation is being developed to add diabetes mellitus.
In addition, monetary benefits, health care and vocational
rehabilitation services are provided to Vietnam veterans' offspring with
spina bifida, a congenital birth defect of the spine. A new law authorizes
health care and monetary benefits to children of female veterans who
served in Vietnam for certain additional birth defects. Those additional
benefits under the new law will not be payable to the beneficiaries until
Dec. 1, 2001.
Veterans who served in Vietnam during the war also are eligible for a
complete physical examination. If a VA physician suspects a disease
might be related to Agent Orange, VA will provide free medical care.
Those who 'participate in the examination program become part of an
Agent Orange Registry and receive periodic mailings from VA about the
latest Agent Orange studies and new diseases being covered under VA
policies.
Vietnam veterans and their families can contact VA for more
information about these benefits. For the Agent Orange Registry physical
examination, call a local VA hospital or clinic listed in the government
pages of your phone book. To file a compensation claim for a current
disability related to Agent Orange, veterans can call 1-800-827-1000 for
an application form or visit VA's Web site at: http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov.

CRAIG MIKEL, BLUE CROSS
AND BLUE SHIELD:
Craig explained to the Board that
there was not enough premium spread
to suggest an insurance plan change
and he highly recommended keeping
the existing benefits as is. Craig stated
that there will be an 18.24% increase
in the insurance premiums. County
Coordinator, Arthur Bellot added that
the increase ends up being
approximately $60.00 per employee
per month.
Craig also explained that there were
626,000 dollars paid out in insurance
premiums made last year and 818,000
claims that were actually paid out.
Commissioner Hays asked how one
agent compared to another.
Craig's response was that there was
nothing that one agent could bring to
the table that another one couldn't.
The only thing that an agent can do is
propose alternatives and
recommendations.
Commissioner Hays stated that the
insurance rate difference was not
enough to make a difference. If we
decided to go with another company
how the families would be impacted?
Craig's response was that the families
would never notice a change. The
families who desired to would be able
to keep their original plans.
Commissioner Lamb's opinion was
that Craig should create a split.
Commissioner Lamb also stated that
$130,000 was a lot of money to have
to pay for an insurance premium
increase.
Commissioner Hays asked the
question "At what point does the
Board of County Commissioners need
to make a decision on what route we
wish to take?"
Arthur Bellot stated that if the Board
wanted to make a change, that they
needed to consider doing it sooner than
later because the deadline was
approaching. If a change is not
desired, it is only a matter of putting
the increase in the budget.
Craig stated to the Board that this
year the costs escalated as well as
claims experience.
After discussion, Commissioner
Driggers asked everyone in attendance
if there were any questions.
LANCE BRASWELL, MAYO
INSURANCE:
Mr. Braswell explained that he
agreed with Craig on the issue of Blue
Cross and Blue Shield. However, Blue
Cross sometimes needed to be tested.
He said that taking Blue Cross
shopping every year is a bad idea but
sometimes the water needed to be
tested whether a change is anticipated
or not.
Craig said that even if he cut family
coverage by 40% we still wouldn't
have an affordable rate plan.
Commissioner Driggers thanked the

Lander announced to the Board that
they will be moving forward with the
project presentation to the water
association members for a vote on the
21 "of August.
The intention for this project is to
put a Water and Sewer plant in Dixie
County. The reasoning for this is that
the most growth at the county line is
on the Dixie County side therefore
making more sense to put the plant
here.
Lander stated that they are looking
into putting one plant in Taylor County
and one in Dixie County. He said it
would make little to no sense to put
two plants next door to each other.
The location of the plant has been
discussed as being between Jena and
Rocky Creek.
Commissioner Land asked how long
it would take to move forward.
Rex Dunn, Steinhatchee Water,
responded that Water and Sewer prices
are stable at this point and that there
will be no increase in the near future.
Rex said that they were taking
connection fees and putting them
towards development costs.
Rex stated that at the moment he
was waiting on a quote to bore under
the Steinhatchee River.
Lander stated that he wanted the
authority to tie up the loose ends on
the project.
Commissioner Chairman Driggers
stated to the Board that a decision
needed to be made.
The motion to carry out the project
was made by Commissioner Valentine
and was seconded by Commissioner
Hays.
SANDY MAYNORD:
Sandy stated that they would prefer
to use the sewer on US 19.
Commissioner Hays asked where the
city was at on this idea.
Sandy stated that the city seemed to
be okay with the idea; however, they
were leery when Sandy first
approached.

Arthur Bellot said that his take on
the situation was that the city still
wanted to annex.
Sandy said the city would allow
them to hook up to the water supply at
their cost. Sandy stated that anything
that they had, the city could put a tax
on.
Arthur Bellot proposed the question
would the city provide utilities.
Commissioner Hays asked when the
last time that Sandy was before the city
was.
Sandy's response was approximately
five or six months ago.
Sandy said that she just wanted to
approach the Board of County
Commissioners with her ideas since
she was on county property. She
stated that she would be approaching
the city the same way that she had
approached the county.

they had been cleaning the restrooms

National Arbor

Day Foundation

Announces Ten

Free Live Oak

Trees
Ten free live oak trees will
be given to each person who'
joins The National Arbor Day-
Foundation during September
2006.
The free trees are part of
the nonprofit Foundation's
Trees for American campaign.
"These magnificent wide-
spreading trees will be
picturesque additions to your
landscape," John Rosenow, the
Foundation's president said.
'They are selected because of
the shade and special beauty
they will give your home. Live
oaks grow rapidly when young
and may live to be centuries
old."
The trees will be shipped
postpaid at the right time for
planting between October 15
and December 10 with
enclosed planting instructions.
The six to twelve inch trees are
guaranteed to grow or they will
be replaced free of charge.
Members also receive a
subscription to the
Foundation's colorful
bimonthly publications, Arbor
Day, and The Tree Book with,
information about tree planting
and care.
To receive the free trees,
send a $10 membership
contributions to TEN LIVE
OAKS, National Arbor Day
Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave.,
Nebraska City, NE 68410, by
September 30, 2006. Or join

Nurses Needed
(NAPS)-With the popula-
tion living longer and need-
ing more care, the health care
field is one of the best areas
in which to get a job. In fact,
by the year 2020, there will
be an estimated shortage of
800,000 nurses.
Currently, registered nurses
constitute the largest health
care occupation with 2.4 mil-
lion jobs and, among all occu-
pations, are projected to cre-
ate the second-largest number
of new jobs. Most openings
should occur in hospitals,
nursing care facilities and
home healthcare services, to
name a few.
The three major educational
paths to registered nursing
are a bachelor's degree, an
associate's degree and a
diploina from an approved
nursing program.
Opportunities in most spe-
cialities are expected to be
excellent, with some employ-
ers already reporting diffi-
culty in attracting and retain-
ing enough RNs.
Experts at Interim Health-
Care, a leading provider of
home care and supplemental
health care staffing, recom-
mend job seekers learn about
training and certification in
their desired fields. For more
information or to apply online,

Levy County

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 31~t at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Every Thurs, is a great day.
Ann Hardee finished a "Rail
Fence", Goldie finished a
"Maple Leaf' Marie brought in
two quilts she made using the
pattern of the month that was
very pretty. B.J. and Pat are
working on the Woman's Club
quilt and it will be great when
finished.
There will be No Auction
that was advertised. The
people that were going to hold
it found out they had to have a
license and it will take a while
before they come do business
here.
Greg and five boys were
out and the boys got so much
done, rugs and floors cleaned,
the yard mowed, two peeled
pears for me to make preserves
and so much more. They are so
much help and they have to do.
As always thanks.
Shirley Murphy and her
husband will be going back to
Tenn. Next week. She has been
so much help to the museum
and we will miss them and
hope they will always come
back to see and help us.

THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : Is there a waiting period
in the State of Florida for
getting married after a couple
applies for a Marriage License?
Are blood tests required, and
do you have to apply in the
County you live in? Can a
minor apply for a license?

A Yes and no. There is
normally a 3-day waiting
period as of January 1, 1999.
However, if both parties have
taken a 4-hour premarital
preparation course given by a
minister or counselor registered
with the Clerk of the Circuit
Court, the waiting period is
waived and the license fee is
reduced.
*If only one applicant took the
course, the waiting period is
still required.
-If neither applicant is a
Florida resident, the waiting
period is not required.
-If one applicant is not a
Florida resident, and the other
is a Florida resident and has
taken the premarital course, the
waiting period is still required.
*Blood tests have not been
required since this test was
abolished October 1, 1986.


Ellen Sands
*A marriage license may be
applied for and solemnized in
any Florida county.
*Minors, who under oath,
swear that they are parents or
expectant parents of a child
may apply. In addition, the
pregnancy must be verified by
a written statement from a
licensed physician.
-A perviously married minor
may also apply.
-A person age 16 or 17 may
with the consent of both
parents or guardian, unless the
parents are divorced and only
one parent has full custody.

If you need help filling out the
forms or finding a phone
number for the nearest legal
assistance office, call the
Clerk's Office and ask where
assistance is available.

How Can The Social Security Disability Spedalst At Integrated Famrny 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.

Dixie Sighting


More Caterpillars!
Toni Shores & John Wilkerson of Bell, FL emailed us about the caterpillar that was featured in
the August 31 st Advocate, brought in by Melba Delaney of Old Town. Here's your answer Melba...
Hi I can tell you what that caterpillar is... it is a hickory horn devil. Don't know the true scientific
name but it will turn into the regal moth which is a huge bright orange or red moth. I found one of
these under my carport last year in Bell and took some photos of it and sent them to the University
and they replied back with the information I am giving you. They said it is usually only seen when it
is getting ready to transform itself. It will burrow down in the ground and come out as this
beautifully large moth.
Thanks, Toni!
While this week's picture looks similar, I bet that we will get a different answer on the caterpillar
picture sent in by Tina Carter. Tina stated she found this spiked-caterpillar crawling in her yard this
past summer. Can anyone identify this beauty?
Thanks Tina!

their host for the show will be none other than Kyle Wyley himself.
One Step at a Time
Kyle Wyley has come a long way since he first came to Nashville six years ago, bent on pursuing
his goal of a country music career. Now on the verge of releasing his second album, he's closer to
achieving that dream than ever.
But Kyle is quick to note that he couldn't have made it
this far without the love and support of his parents and -
older siblings back home-or the lessons he learned while
growing up on the family ranch in tiny Clayton, New .
Mexico.
For example, he recalls how at age 12, he and a friend '
spent a week building a fence. They were in a rush to "
finish, and didn't do a very good job. "I just wanted to get
done and out of the heat," he explains. "I wanted to sit in
the shade, go jump in the creek and cool off and have fun
with my friends." .
The result? "That fence was crooked as a snake," he
says. "I had to tear it back down and start all over, because
it wasn't done right."Since then, Kyle has always
proceeded carefully. When he moved to Nashville in 2000,
he set about building his career step by step, making sure
each piece was in its proper place-just like that old fence.
Still, he admits, he's eager to move forward. "I am
getting anxious," he admits. "I'm keeping my eyes to the
ground and my ears wide open, because there's no telling what the next step is gonna be."
Keep reading Dixie County Advocate to find out how you can win a trip to Nashville to see
the CMA Awards with Kyle.
