Paying Last Respects To An
American Hero...


Guy Gabaldon's widow, Ohana Gabadon, is presented the flag from
a Marine Color Guard, which lay on her husband's coffin during a
Memorial service held in his honor last week.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Guy Louis Gabaldon of Old Town passed away on August 31,
2006 at the age of 80. He was known to many as an American
Hero for his bravery during World War II. His story was even told
in the Hollywood movie, "Hell to Eternity". However, it was not
just his missions during war time that made him a hero; it was
those deeds he did as a man, a man who puts others first and his


love for God and family.

The staff at the Supervisor of Elections office stayed long past midnight on Tuesday, September 5th, working on a variety of glitches
that caused delays in tallying the primary ballots. The reason for the delay was due in part to human error, computer problems and the
fact that only 60% of registered voters have sent in their 911 address information. While the public was very understanding, the staff
hopes to have a smoother General Election in November. See "ELECTION" page 5

Steve Irwin, R.I.P.
- They called him the "Crocodile Hunter," though he hunted
them with nothing more lethal than a camera. Steve Irwin
entertained millions world-wide with his televised antics in which
lie matched muscle and wits with some of the deadliest creatures on
earth. He survived bites from poisonous snakes and a variety of
aggressive animals, but he always came out on top.
Until last week. Steve was filming what was planned to be his
last documentary in the waters off his native Australia when a brief
encounter with a large sting ray ended his life.
. While you or I might consider a sting ray to be a formidable
beast, to Steve Irwin, it was just one of the docile creatures of the
deep that you didn't want to step on, but was otherwise harmless.
Sting rays bury themselves in the sand, and if you don't watch
where you're wading you could wind up with a painful gash in your
leg, but sting ray fatalities are extremely rare.
Even more uncommon are incidents of swimmers getting stung
without first making contact, but that's what, happened to Steve
Irwin. He was swimming above the creature, which apparently felt
threatened and lashed out with its tail, catching him in the chest
and puncturing his heart. Instinctively, Steve pulled out the barb,
but the damage was done and he died moments later.
Steve Irwin loved his work, and even the dangerous creatures
6le handled. He'd catch a large, poisonous snake with his bare
hands, hold it up and exclaim, "Ain't she a beauty!" At his animal
compound, Steve kept a variety of dangerous creatures, mostly
reptiles, and he had pet names for a lot of them. One of these was a
large female crocodile, believed to be a century old or more. Steve
was so fond of her that he shed tears when she died. When I saw
that episode on TV, I thought, well, the croc would liked to have
shed tears for him as well-those infamous "crocodile tears" that
the leviathans shed as they're devouring their prey. But she was his
pet, whether or not she realized it.
: Some of the high-risk behavior Steve undertook was absolutely
Amind-boggling. He and a cameraman would venture hundreds of
miles into the Australian Outback, hours away from civilization,
where he would catch deadly snakes with his bare hands, knowing
that his chances of survival were slim if he were bitten. He may
have carried vials of anti-venom and possibly a GPS system that
miight have gotten a rescue helicopter to him in time, but it's not
the sort of risk that many of us would want to take, even for the
money he made doing it.
: What really boggled my mind was watching him pull diamond-
back rattlesnakes out of gopher holes. Any good ol' boy knows that,
if you want to get a rattler out of a gopher hole, you get a piece of
hose, put it down the hole and pour in a little gasoline. If there's a
snake in that hole, he'll come out and you can then pursue the
matter on your own terms, not the snake's. But not Steve Irwin.
He'd reach in there, pull that venom-spittin' thing out with his bare
hands, and never get a scratch.
I suppose Steve grew up messing with poisonous snakes. Aus-
fralia has more venomous than non-venomous varieties, some of
which like nothing better than setting up housekeeping in your
garage or laundry room. Not all poisonous snakes are aggressive,
but they're all poisonous and any of them will bite if you give them
i chance. Young Steve's parents must have had a hard time
adjusting to his fascination with such creatures.
As it turns out, Steve met his demise, not through an encounter
with one of the deadly denizens with which he dealt on a regular
basis, but with a relatively docile creature that rarely strikes unless
it's stepped on, and almost never kills anybody. It seemed like
Father an anticlimactic ending for the fearless Crocodile Hunter,
wvho sincerely loved living "on the edge."

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere
gratitude to the people of Dixie County for their continued support
and contributions to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The money that was contributed through the Fill the Boot
Campaign will help our members receive much-needed medical
equipment such as wheelchairs, leg braces, and communication
devices. The contributions also help our families in Dixie County
attend clinics free of charge at the University of Florida Shands,
Mayo Clinic of Jacksonville, and Nemours Children's Hospital.
A very special thank you goes out to the men and women of the
Dixie County Fire Department. Not only are they heroes in the line
of duty, but they are also heroes to our members. Dixie County
Fire Department raised an amazing $5,400.00! It is because of their
hard work standing on street comers that MDA is able to help
people with muscular dystrophy.
So again, thank you very much to the people of Dixie County
and to the firefighters who spent their weekend to raise much
needed money for MDA.
Sincerely,
Leslie Cowart
District Director

Letter To The Editor
My husband and I would first like to thank God for what all he
has done for us. Next we would like to say praise God for our
ambulance service and each and everyone that is a part of the EMS
service. Their fast response time and the helpful 911 dispatcher is
to be commended.
Thanks to our pastor Cecil Hysmith and out Family Praise
Christian Church for their love and prayers that you have shown to
us. Thanks to the whom community for their prayers.
Remember, it's not over until God says it is over.
God Bless !
We love you all.
Benny & Sherron Davis

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor,
I would like to publicly thank Buddy Lamb for handling a
problem I had so fast and efficiently. Our road was almost
impassable, I called Buddy, he answered the phone the first time I
called and took the time to listen to me!!!
Our road was fixed within 24 hours. It sure is nice to not have to
worry about the big hole any more... So again, thanks Buddy!!
Maxine Ellison
Old Town

Letter To The Editor
To whomever found it in their heart to seal my son's four-
wheeler, may God have mercy on your soul! They say, what comes
around, goes around well you will get your day!
My son is heartbroken and sick. At 14 years of age, he saved his
hard earned money to help buy this four-wheeler. It took us two
years to buy it. We are not wealthy people, monetarily, but for your
conscience (which obviously you don't have) we will be,okey. WE
are rich in other ways unlike you.
If you have any information about our 4-wheeler please call 542-
0734. It is a green 350 2-wheel drive Honda Rancher.
Thanks,
Laura Colson

New FEMA Flood

Maps At Next

Commission Meeting

On Sept. 21st
New Dixie County flood maps will become effective at the end
of September, and two meetings have been set for Thursday,:
September 21, to present them to the public.
The first meeting will be from 2 p.m. 4 p.m., and is geared
toward city and county officials, lending institutions, insurers,
engineers, surveyors, and Realtors, and other users of flood
maps. At 6"p.m., a pubic workshop will be held in conjunction with
the regularly scheduled Dixie County Board of County
Commission Meeting. Both meetings will be held in the:
Commissioners Meeting Room at the Dixie County Courthouse..
(Note the Commission Room has been changed to its new location
in the courthouse at the end of the courtroom).
The new Dixie County flood maps, which include incorporated:
cities and towns, have been in production for nearly two years. The
project is a cooperative effort of the Federal Emergency:
Management Agency (FEMA) and the Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD), and is part of FEMA's plan to
modernize all flood hazard maps nationwide.
For fast-growing North Florida, the new digital-format,
(electronic) maps will provide more accurate, detailed and up-to-.
date data to help local officials, planners, builders and developers,
to better understand local flood hazards and risks, and to help them,
make more informed decisions on where to build.
Insurance agents, lending institutions, homeowners and
business owners will find the new maps helpful in determining'
current flood risks.
For more information call Steve Minnis at 800-226-1066 or

"ELECTION"
Continued from page 1

Prior to the Primary Election, poll workers attended several
training classes. Additional training was held on the new Touch
Screen voting machine. Each precinct had one of these new
machines which are designed to assist voters who are handicapped.
These new machines put Dixie County into compliance with the
state mandate which states that each precinct be equipped with the
touch screen machine. What makes them unique is that they are
equipped with head phones if the voter needs the ballot read to
them; brail key pads and the ability to enlarge the ballot. It was
noted that you do not have to be handicapped to use the touch
screen. There were no problems reported with the use of the touch
screens.
Polls opened at 7:00am and closed at 7:00pm. The main cause
for the delay in tallying the ballots was due to several of the
precincts not being able to download the results. Whether
computer or phone related, precinct 1 and 4's ballots had to be ran
through by hand, by the Canvassing Board. While this procedure
delayed the final tally, it did not affect the outcome of the election.
After the polls closed, the public was invited to the courtroom
where they could see results of the races on a screen, as they were
totaled. As an observer in the Supervisor's Office, I saw that this
was causing problems in itself. Supervisor Staff should not be
interrupted during this critical time when precincts are reporting in.
To rectify this problem, totals will not be made public until at least
9:00 pm, which is two hours after the polls close, in the upcoming
general election in November. It was noted that Dixie County is
the only county that reports totals in a public forum. Other
counties wait until the last vote is counted and then they post a
complete tally.
Problems at the polls were mainly centered on the problem of
voters not having sent in their new 911 addresses to the
Supervisor's Office. For several months the Supervisor's Office
posted notices around town in both public and governmental
offices reminding folks to get that information to the Supervisor
prior to the election. It was also requested via the Dixie County
Advocate on at least five occasions.
While the voting precinct boundary lines have not been
changed, the 911 addresses have made the lines more defined. For
some residents who have voted at one particular polling place all
their lives, it may have changed this year due to the fact that the
map does not go by directions such as "living next to the big oak
tree just pass the old Johnson place" anymore. "This is the year we
need to get this 911 system in place," stated Supervisor of
Elections Mae Beville.
While the Supervisor's office is there to serve the public, the
voter has to be responsible to make sure their information is
correct.. It is each voter's responsibility to keep their address
'current, know their precinct, bring proper identification, check to
.-see that your ballot is completed before turning it in, and ask
questions when confused. It pays each voter to know the
candidates and issues before going to vote. Poll workers are there
to help and should be treated with courtesy. If you have problems,
ask to speak to the supervisor at your polling place, or call the
Supervisor's office at 498-1216. They will send someone out if
needed. "We want everyone to exercise their right to vote," stated
Beville. She noted that despite a handful of problems, Dixie
County had a good showing, 31%, compared to statewide
percentages. "We hope to get a larger number of voters out for the
general election," stated Beville. She hopes that between now and
November, that those 40% who have not turned in their proper
address information, will do so. "We are ready to work overtime if
needed in order to get this issue behind us," she added.
To avoid all of the above, the Supervisor suggests that you take

advantage of early voting or voting by absentee ballot. For the
SNovember General Election, early voting will begin October 23rd
and run until November 4th.


"PARK"
Continued from page 1


- .-The picture to the right shows the "blank canvas" that will become the
-' .new Northwest Cross City Park.
the Recreation Committee presented officials nth a check for
" $200.000 from a Florida Recreation Delelopment Assistance
Program (FRDAP) which will be used for the new park.
The one-acre park, located at NE 121st Street (Leon Street),
: behind the water tower, has already been cleared and fenced.
!: When completed, the park will have a volleyball and basketball
courts, walking path, playground equipment, picnic pavilions,
S security lighting, sidewalks, restrooms and a separate playground
area for challenged children as well as handicap parking.
,^ Total cost for this project will be approximately $450,000. At
s the end of last year the City received the first grant for Phase I of
i the project in the amount of $200,000; with the city and county
providing $50,000 in "in-kind" labor. "We would like to extend
our thanks to Commissioner John Driggers and County
Coordinator Arthur Bellot as well as the rest of the Board of
County Commissioners for all their help," stated City Manager
Mike Cassidy. 'Their concern and commitment to all of Dixie
.County shows in their enthusiasm for this project."
J Work will begin in October with a completion date of early
,. July 2007.

"HERO"
Continued from page 1

Guy was born in New Mexico in 1926. When young, he spent
time in a Japanese-American home and learned to speak fluent
Japanese. At the age of 17, Guy enlisted in
the Marines and because he spoke Japanese,
he was used during the interrogation of
Japanese prisoners.
i. During WWII, Guy was stationed on
Saipan. It was during his tour there, he was
known for single-handedly capturing over
S 1,000 Japanese troops, crawling through
caves and convincing the Japanese soldiers to
surrender.
Guy Louis Guy was to receive the Medal of Honor
Gabaldon for his bravery during the war; however, he
was awarded the Silver Star instead. His
Medal of Honor is still pending and his fellow soldiers and family
can only hope that it will one day be given to him posthumously.
Guy and his wife, Ohana, moved to Dixie County in 2003 from
Modesto, CA. He was a member of the First Baptist Church in
Cross City, the Marine Corp League, the VFW and the Masonic
Lodge of Mexico and New Mexico. There seemed to be little that
he could not do. His love of his country, led him to be a true patriot
and he worked to instill that patriotism in others.
His family will also remember Guy for having a zest for life, a
great sense of humor and a greater sense of duty. Their memories
include his love for flying and his great love of adventure.
A memorial service was held on Tuesday, September 5, 2006 at
the First Baptist Church, so that his friends would have the
opportunity to pay their last respects. A Marine Corp Color Guard
and Members of the Tri-County Marine Corp participated in the
memorial service. His cremated remains were taken to Saipan
where two of his eight children live.

"FESTIVAL"
Continued from page 1

Koberlein addressed the Board, giving a brief synopsis of the
revitalization of the local chapter since July of 2005. He noted
they are active in all four of the Rotary Avenues of Service, which
are Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, and
International Service. He also noted that while their "Signature
Project", putting out flags on every national holiday, as well as
Flag Day; it isn't the only community involvement of the club.
In addition, the Rotary Club supports the local blood bank, high
school seniors, provides dictionaries to all third graders in the
county, collects stuffed animals for law enforcement to distribute,
and has begun to hold "baby showers" for the pregnancy crisis
center.
While their "flag detail" raises a good amount of funds, which
goes toWards sponsoring senior scholarships, they are hoping to
expand their fundraising efforts and will embark on quite an
ambitious project, the Dixie Fall Festival & Gun Show. This new
event will be held at the Trail Riders Club, for the weekend of
October 28th and 29th. Festivities will begin at 10am on Saturday
and at noon on Sunday, running until 5pm each day.
Admission and parking will be free this year. Cost of admission
into the buildings will be $3.00.
Showcased will be artists, crafters, gunsmiths, nurseries, ranch
suppliers, specialty food and everything in between.
Proceeds will go into projects that will benefit the community,
as the Rotary Club is a not-for-profit organization. In order for the
festival to be successful, Rotary Club members are hoping that the
community will come out and support their efforts. Be looking for
additional information in the weeks to follow.

Among those honored was Maj. Roy Wood, a 1975 Dixie
County High School Graduate. Wood was the first Florida
National Guard Member to be killed in Afghanistan when his
Humvee collided with a truck in January of 2004. Wood served 24
years with the Army Reserves and National Guard. He was with
the Third Battalion, C Company, 20h1 Special Forces Group based
out of Ft Lauderdale.
Wood was an emergency room physician in Fort Myers before
being deployed to Afghanistan. While in Afghanistan, Wood gave
up his officer status so that he could work as a medic with his unit.
During his tour there he helped to build a small clinic in the town
of Mazar-e-Sharif.
It was his passion for medicine and the military that his fellow
soldiers remember him for. It was the fun loving, hard working,
nice guy, who never uttered a harsh word, that his fellow 1975
classmates remember.
Wood was survived by his wife, Hana, and their two children,
Roy and Caroline.

The Word

Made Flesh
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say (Ecclesiast
.3:18) (Psalms 73:22) (Titus 1:12)
(II Peter 2:12) (Jude 1:10). These
men are speaking about men and
women here on earth that is
natural, fleshy, evil and carnal.
They speak evil of the things they
know not. The scriptures say they
are ever learning and never
coming to the knowledge of the
truth. Man does not like to
recognize it, but a lot of the people
that the scripture speaks of are
professors of some kind of
religion believers in some kind
of God the blind leading the
blind.
Before Cain became angry he
was in the presence of God. Then
in his wrath he took his brothers
life. "And the Lord said unto Cain,
Where is Abel thy brother? And
he said, I know not: am I my
brother's keeper? And he (the
Lord) said what hast thou done?
The voice of thy brothers' blood
crieth unto me from the ground.
And now art thou cursed from the
earth, which hath opened her
mouth to receive thy brother's
blood from thy hand... Cain
said..."Behold thou hast driven
me out this day from the face of
the earth; and from the face shall I
be hid."
(Genesis 4:9-14) I, the son of
man, say the mark of carnality
came alive in Cain and his carnal
mind led him into murder. This
separated him from the Lord's
presence and he went out from the
Lord. From there on Cain did not
know God and was put out of
God's presence. Look at the man
and woman who will not get rid of
the carnal mind. They want to
continue in carnality and still
profess to know God. When you
actually see the truth of it; these
people do not know God. It is true
these people have a blessing
working in their lives. But they do
not know God like Adam and Eve
knew Him, before they
transgressed the commandment of
God.
These transgressors do not
hear the voice of the Lord Jesus.
Jesus said, My sheep hear my
voice, and I know them, and they
follow me." (St. John 10:27)
Adam and Eve were sheep until
they were enticed to try to be
something spiritual on their own.
I, the son of man, say what are we
looking at spiritually? It is the
same thing as: You go to your
church and I go to mine, and we
will all go to heaven together.
,' Come to be a good Catholic or be
a good Pentecostal. Come be a
'. Seventh Day Adventist or
SJehovah's Witness, and let us
show you where the others are
wrong. These points of doctrine
that divide people are not the
truth. Continued next week.

Faith Baptist Church Newsletter
Today was a beautiful day-at Faith. Brother Jackie brought two
fine messages that God had laid on his heart. The weather was
beautiful, and we had lots of visitors. We are always grateful for
our visitors. They are very special to us and we pray that they went
away feeling welcome and loved.
In the morning service, Debbie Phillips sang "Farther Along",
and in the evening service we had two specials. Josie Storey sang
"Love Grew Where the Blood Fell" and Heather Fore sang "He
Knows My Name". We are always so grateful for the talent to are
always ready and willing to use them for Him.
Wednesday night the 13th, will be our regular monthly business
meeting. As a member of this church, it is our responsibility to be
here and take care of God's business.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, the lost and the
unconcerned in our area. Invite a friend to come to Sunday school
and church with you next week. If everyone who came today
would bring just one friend, neighbor, or loved one next week,
thinks of what a wonderful crowd we could have. Call someone
who hasn't been attending regularly and let them know we are
concerned and would love to have them back. God will bless you
for it. Until we meet again, we pray that God will keep you
healthy, happy and safe.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"God"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say Christ died for
ALL Romans 5:18 "Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came
upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteous of one the free
gift came upon all men unto justification of life". How strange that so
many are quick to accept the dark side of the picture, how that all men
have come under sin because of the fall of Adam, and yet those people
refuse to accept, yeah even fight, the bright side of the picture concerning
all being made righteous by the sacrificial work of the crucified Christ
who died for all mankind.
How inconsistent we are when we read of the mercy and love of God
so freely given to mankind. I Cor. 15:21,22 "For since by man came death,
by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ shall all be made alive". I, the Day of the Lord, say 2
Cor. 6:14 "We thus jude, that if one died for all, then were all dead." If
Christ died for all of us, then we are all included in the work of that
crucifixion and shall also be included in the working of His resurrection.
So reckon yourself also to be dead In Him, that there might also come a
new life to you through Him shall every man rise from the dead. "But
every man in his own order".
I, the Day of the Loird, say Paul insists that God dealt fully and
* righteously for all human sin in all of its aspects. And whatever its penalty
price, judgment, whatever had to be met, God has exacted it in full from
His own beloved son. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto
* Himself not imputing their trespasses unto them (not charging to their
account). "But He hath made Him (Christ) to be sin focus, who knew no
* sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him". (2 Cor.
5:19,21).
SContinued next week...

New Prospect Baptist News
Thank God for yet another Sunday on which we had the
opportunity to assemble ourselves in His house, to worship Him in
Truth and Spirit. Our choir was intent on making a joyful noise
unto the Lord as we praised Him in song, and Bro. Billy was no
less enthusiastic as he delivered God's message from Numbers
16:28-35, leaving all with much food for thought.
We were very pleased to have visitors once again, and we
welcome them and others to come and worship with us anytime.
God's blessings continue to flow!
On Wednesday evening, Sept. 20th, we will have our monthly
Fellowship Supper; most likely on the Suwannee this time, a time
to which we look forward in anticipation of good Christian
fellowship and food. Other items are on the agenda, so keep
watching.
As always, please keep your prayers going for all those on the
various church prayer lists, members of our armed forces, our
president and other leaders, and any others of whom you know to
be in need. Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Card Of Thanks
To The Friends of My
Daddy, Scott Johnson a.k.a. "91"
On August 26, 2006, my dad was in a tragic accident that
claimed his life. Many family members, friends and co-workers
have been affected by this. I know that we are not supposed to ask
why, but we are only human. As an 18 year old I had to make
several decisions that were the
hardest thing in the world for
me to do. I am asking that you
remember Daddy, as he was

I do apologize to my family .
who did not agree with my
decisions. I felt like I was doing
the right thing for all of us. I ..

would have wanted and would
have suggested to me to do. '
I would like to say "thank
you" to Uncle Johnny for being .
there for me. Officer Mark

the time off to be there for me. You guys are the greatest. Mr.
Lane, what do I say; thanks for being there, you have always
known what to say or do when I need it the most. Uncle Davey,
Aunt Gwen, and Dachelle, thank you for supporting my decisions
and helping me through this the best way that you could. To
Suwannee Lumber and Daddy's co-workers, thank you for
everything and the support through this time of our loss.' To the

Life Line Screening To Be Held At

Woman's Club September 28th
Residents living in and around the Cross City, FL, community
can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke. Life Line
Screening will be at the Dixie County Woman's Club on
September 28th. The site is located at 236 NE 134th St. in Cross
City Appointments will begin at 10:00 am.
A stroke, also known as a "brain attack", is ranked as the third
leading killer in the world, and the second among women. Through
preventive screenings, the risk of having a stroke can be greatly
reduced.
Screenings are fast, painless and low cost. They involve the use
of ultrasound technology, and scan for potential health problems
related to: blocked arteries which can lead to a stroke, aortic
aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta, and hardening of the
arteries in the legs, which are a strong predictor of heart disease.
Also offered for men and women, is a bone density screening to
assess their risk for osteoporosis.
Each screening requires ten minutes or less to complete. A
complete vascular screening package, including the Stroke/Carotid
Artery, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Ankle Brachial Index
(hardening of the arteries) screenings is $109. Sign-up for a
complete vascular package; include the osteoporosis screening and
pay only $129.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993; and has since
become the nation's leading provider of vascular screenings. Over
60 ultrasound teams are on staff to travel to your local community,
bringing the screenings to you. These non-invasive, inexpensive
and painless, ultrasound tests help people identify their risk for
stroke, vascular diseases or osteoporosis early enough for their
physician to being preventive procedures.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule

an appointment, call 1-877-237-1287. Pre-registration is required.

An official-looking notice announcing
cancellation of Florida's 2006 turkey hunting
seasons is a hoax.
According to the bogus notice, delivered to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) via fax, several cases of
avian influenza in Northwest Florida wild
turkeys prompted closure of this year's turkey
hunting seasons, and possibly subsequent years'
through 2009, as well. It says the action is
necessary to prevent the disease from spreading
through other wild bird populations.
The FWC and other agencies across the
continent are monitoring bird populations for
signs of the disease. To date, they have
discovered no cases of the highly dangerous
form of the disease. As part of the FWC's avian
influenza surveillance, scientists investigate
reports of bird deaths and ask that anyone who

The Bears let the Indians beat them 20-0 Saturday at the Boyette sports complex in Cross City.
The Bears started by kicking off to the Indians. The defense picked a fumble up on the third down
and this set the tone for rest of the game. The Bears defense getting the ball and the offense making
mistakes and giving the Indians the opportunity to score on the Bears errors. Daniel "Hollywood"
Thomas and Houston Rhodes lead the defense along with Cody "T-Bone Evans, Buddy Howell,
Dylan Anderson and Dillon Parker. They had some outstanding plays that stopped the Indians from
running up the score.
Quarterback Duke Dawson had trouble with snaps throughout the whole game, which contributed
to the Bears inability to turn the game in their favor. The Bears were also hampered by numerous
penalties that caused them more heartache.
Even though the Bears lost in a big way to the Indians, they still continued to play hard right to
end of the game not giving up when they knew that they could not win. The Coaches all agreed the
team has to work harder and get tougher to win the next games but were still proud of the team's
effort. Number 18 Dylan Reed seemed to sum it up best when after the last play he commented "We
ought to buy them (Indians) a rose and a box of chocolates after this game!"
Golden Bears Take the Titans.
The Youth League Golden Bears played their best game of the season Saturday when they beat
the Titans in a 12-7 shoot out. The Golden Bears came back after last weeks loss to show everyone
what they learned at practice last week. Quarterback Conner Meekins used Jamal "Mighty Mouse"
Chapman to outrun, and outwit the Titans. The Bears dominated the first.quarter possession, scoring
in the last minute and a half with a QB keeper. In the third quarter "Mighty Mouse" Chapman on a
hand off play, reminiscent of the Tampa Bay Bucs or the Jville Jags, ran down field for an 80 yard
touchdown leaving the Titan defenders in the dust! This gave the Golden Bears a 12-7 lead.
Defensive players who performed well were Geraid Beque, Frank Cooper, Julian Robinson and
Clifford Jackson. Offensively we will be watching Kade Everett, Brandon Land, and Travis
Pleasant. Coach Anderson told the team after the game that everybody played good, but we have to
get tougher and work harder.
Congratulations to the Golden Bears and their coaches on a big win at home. GO BEARS!

American

Legion News
National POW/MIA
Recognition Day is tomorrow,
Friday, September 15, 2006.
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 of
Florida's American Legion, the
Bell High School JROTC and the
Bell High School Purple
Powerhouse Band invite you to
honor the Nation's POW/MIA at a
brief ceremony prior to tomorrow
night's football game in Bell. It is
requested that all veterans who
wish to join them on the field
during this moment of honor,
would meet no later than 6:30 PM
at the northwest comer of the Bell
High School football field.
Members of the various Veteran
Service Organizations are
requested to wear your official
caps to identify yourselves with
your respective organizations. Let
people see who the veterans are
,that are still serving our Nation,
veterans and the community.
The Post 91 Legion Family
invites the community to join with
,them on Saturday, September 23,
2006, from 10:00 AM until around
2:00 PM for the Children and
Youth Day. There will be fun,
food, and prizes for each age
group. This event is open to
everyone in the community. Bring
the children out and watch the
fun. All proceeds and donations
will go to support the Post's
community programs.
Post 91 Family Executive
,Committee will meet at 6:00 PM
tonight, Thursday, September 14.
The final preparations for the
*Children and Youth Day as well as
.the POW/MIA service will be
-worked out.
This week in September has
"been event-filled over the years.
.September 13, 1814, Francis Scott
;Key was detained aboard a British
,.warship Shelling Fort Henry in
,Baltimore Harbor. What he saw
'that night and early the next
*,morning, inspired him to write
poem about the night. It was later
put to music and has been our
National Anthem since 1931, the
Star Spangled Banner. Some
years earlier, on September 17,
1787, delegates from twelve States
voted to approve the proposed
United States Constitution, and
now, September 17th is
"Constitution Day". On September
25, 1789, two years later, the First
-Amendments to the Constitution,
. of which 10 were approved and
ratified, comprising the Bill of
. Rights. Many years later, the US
'Congress authorized, on
September 18, 1947, the
establishment of the United States
Air Force as a separate service. It
was formerly the US Army Air
Corps.
Another event on Saturday,
September 23, is autumn begins at
01:37 AM Eastern Daylight Time.
That is the time of the "Autumnal
Equinox". And for our friends in
the southern hemisphere, spring
begins on that date. And in this
Hemisphere, deer season is
coming.
Remember, tomorrow night at
'Bell High School, just before
kickoff, the JROTC, Ball
High Band and Post 91 will host a
memorial service for the
POW/MIA of all our Nation's
wars. Since December 7, 1941,


over 88,000 American service
personnel are MIA, and their
families still await the final,
FACTUAL, word on their family
member's disposition. Last year,
the families of SS-371, USS
Lagarto, got the final word of their
family member's "tomb". The sub
was found and later identified
formally by the US Navy, where it
was sunk in WW II by a Japanese
destroyer defending one of the
Japanese convoys. While that just
confirms what was suspected, now
the families know, without a
doubt, and that can give some
comfort and closure, but there are
still over 88, 000 Missing in
Action. Pray for them and their
families.
Remember our Armed Forces
all around the world today in your
prayers and thoughts each day.
Here at home, watch .over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and the families of those service
members on duty for America
today, helping out when and
however you can.


Congratulations to PVT
Corey Travis Rucker who
graduated from USMC boot
camp in Parris Island, South
Carolina on September 8th. He
is home for the next 17 days
but will be reporting to Camp
LeJune, North Carolina to

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2006


0o .ou &eRmneber?
By Carolyn Jones
I was reminded again this week.that I have not written about "a
long time ago" for a while. Thanks to those of you that told me
they enjoyed the articles and had missed them.
Thinking back to my last story, which was about Fanning
Springs and the old Suwannee River Bridge, the building I asked if
anyone could remember was the Ft. Fannin Hotel. It was spelled
without the G back then. The hotel sat on the left bank of the river,
at the foot of the bridge, where the new Fanning Springs Park is
located today. I knew about the hotel because my aunt Jewell and
her husband Toby Marshall lived there when he worked for the
A.C.L. Railroad as a depot agent. Also, I have a snapshot of my
dad, Gene Chewning holding me as a baby in front of the hotel and
the Fannin sign.
Speaking of depot agents, back then, if you had not worked for
the railroad very long and didn't have much seniority, an agent
with more seniority could "roll" you for your job and you would
have to move to another place to work. My uncle was so young
that they had to move a lot at first.
This was during the Depression years and times were hard,
with jobs being scarce. Many years later my uncle told me about
the car he bought back then and couldn't afford the payments, due
to being "rolled" so often. He wrote to the company, telling them
he would have to turn the car back in, and where they could pick it
up. They wrote to him that they couldn't afford to come pick it up,
and would he just keep it until they could. Imagine that today!
Do you remember the "Southland" train and the whistle
blowing as it approached town about midnight every night? Many
times people would stay up and drive down to the depot to watch it
stop, stretched across the tracks, letting off steam and throwing off
sacks of mail and newspapers. Sometimes the train would barely
slow down and letter mail in an envelope would be attached to a
circular wire overhead and the engineer would snag it as the train
passed by. This was tricky and exciting to watch. They called it
"catching the mail". We always wondered where the people in the
sleeper cars (or Pullman cars as they were called) were going.
Their lights would come on and I'm sure they wondered where
they were. This train was later named "The Silver Meteor" and
went to Georgia where people changed and caught trains going
farther on.
Our family experienced a most unusual and exciting event in
connection with "Southland". My mom's sister, Ruby Moulton and
her next door neighbor, Kate Laslie, boarded the train one
midnight to begin their trip to Chicago and the World's Fair. Of
course we all went down to see them off and you can imagine our
excitement that the train was stopping and taking on passengers for
such a long trip. Remember, this was in the early thirties! We had
relatives in Chicago and the girls were chaperoned by them,
making it possible for them to go so far away from home. I still
have the "Key to the City" souvenirs my aunt brought me.
Some of you will remember being taught 2nd grade school by
Miss Kate Laslie, as I was later. She was Mrs. Fisher's daughter
and their house stood where the Pat Gooding house is now. My
family and I lived on the comer across from the Courthouse (the
same house that is now June Wood's Florist) minus the big front
porch where we played. My grandparents and aunts, the
Moulton's, lived between the Fishers and us.
The road out in front of our house was just scraped lime rock
and turned into deep sand ruts when it got past the Barber field
where the nursing home is now. When it rained we had big mud
puddles to play in and try to ride our tricycles through, usually
getting our shoes wet, despite being threatened of spankings. You
only had one pair of shoes back then. We weren't allowed to go
barefoot on wet ground for fear of catching ground itch.
There wasn't much traffic back then and everyone walked to
school. There would be fifteen or twenty boys and girls everyday,
passing in front of our house the Barbers, Roberts, Calvins and
Dyals. When we got old enough, we joined in and then the
Wilders, further on down the road. The Wilders lived where Jerry
Hill's Insurance Office is now and Dordia and I played back and
forth.
If it was too cold, or raining, our mama's took us to school.
Children that lived too far to go home for lunch took theirs in a
paper bag and ate on the school grounds under the trees, sitting on
the pine straw underneath.
,Sometimes we would take our lunch and join our friends,
picnic style, exchanging food and talk.
Most of the time we went home to eat lunch. We had to hurry
and stay on schedule; twenty minutes to walk home. Twenty
minutes to eat and twenty minutes to walk back. That is how we
got our exercise no P.E. back then, unless you played ball. Of
course we played at recess. Busses didn't pick up children living in
town, just those that lived miles away.
- The first lunchroom was called a Soup Kitchen. It was a small
room located way behind the big brick school building out under
the trees. The soup was served in bowls at a walk-up counter and
cost 100. That was a lot of money back then. A while later a small
lunch room was built approximately where the High School Lunch
Room is now, and the meals were 250 a plate. Mostly older boys
and girls along with some teachers ate there! This was considered
expensive as many families could feed several children at home for
this amount.
, Talking about food, do you remember when a loaf of bread was
just 100? Store bought butter was 35 a pound and eggs (if you
had to buy them) were 25 a dozen. Everybody saved the feed
sacks and made dishtowels, shirts and dresses out of them. Most of
the'time my dad had a garden, a cow that provided milk and butter
and a few chickens; mama's project. He would raise a few pigs on
the back lot, so we didn't have to buy everything. He also grew
some sugarcane to make syrup and for us to chew. All this was in
addition to his regular work as a brick mason, and builder.
. : 1 remember sitting on the front porch with my dad while he
rested a bit before we ate. Mama would be busy getting food on the
table. She always cooked a big meal at dinnertime (it was called
dinner then and the night meal was supper). She never knew if we
would have company or not, but was always prepared because my
dad was born and raised here back when we were part of Lafayette
County and knew everybody. People would walk, drive or ride
horseback right in front of our house and usually stopped to talk to
my dad if he was around. He would say, "Come on in and eat with
us"' and they often did.
.One of our visitors was Mr. Bob Bellot with his handlebar
mustache and cowboy hat. He was Arthur Bellot's granddad and
was always jolly and friendly. He would tie his horse under some


-little scrub oaks across from the courthouse. Those little oaks are
'big oaks now, in the L.L. Williams (Sadie) yard across from the
Woman's Club. He would then walk around town, visiting and
trading. We call it shopping now.
; Thinking of the road again, it was called Cedar Street and still
went by that name for many years, even after being paved in 1953.
Before it was paved there was a high place in the middle of the
road between the Courthouse and our yard, where swamp cabbage
palms and cedar trees grew on a mound. The road crews had left
these in place and had scraped the road around each side, forming
ran island in the middle of the road. About a mile further north,
"about where the nursing home is located now (this used to be part
of Aunt Ella Barber's field) there was a grove of cedar trees
'growing on the east side of the road. This is where the names cedar
street originated.
Cedar Street in time became known as Hwy 351 after being
paved. I recall having to watch my children, Stacey and Skipper
very closely, as well as neighbors' children while road crews
poured that hot pavement on the road in front of the Moulton house
(where we lived) before we built our house across the street that I


still live in.
Moving back to early childhood days and some of the things
we did, do you remember playing outside at first dark and trying to
catch lightening bugs? We would put them in glass jars and watch
their lights go on and off. How about doodle bugs? I was talking to
a friend, Arnold Dees, awhile back and he remembered them, too.
We would sing a little ditty about "Come out tonight, your house
in on fire!" while we stirred the little funnel shaped holes in the
sand, usually under the edge of the house where it was dry. We
also tried to catch frogs there too, in spite of being warned about
getting warts.
We played hide & seek, hop scotch, jump rope and made lots
of playhouses, using wood from the woodpiles or by racking
leaves in the shape of rooms. Some of the children would do this at
school at recess time.
We always had a big woodpile to play on because we cooked
on a woodstove and heated our house with fireplaces. Back then;
you could get a big flatbed truckload of smooth dressed scrap
lumber .from the shamrock mill for $2.00 a load. It would be
2X4's, ceiling, flooring and long planks, anywhere from three to
five feet long. We were in "hog heaven" when daddy had a new
load hauled in. We could build airplanes and playhouses until they
had to use it for heating and cooking. Then we had to come up
with something else to do.
Well this led to something different, all right. We decided to
build a cave on the back lot where the garden had been and the dirt
was easy to dig. We used some of the 2X4's and long boards to
support the entrance. Of course our parents soon found our secret
cave and we were forbidden to dig anymore, due to the danger of it
falling in on us.
It wasn't out of our minds though, and as children we couldn't
see the danger. One of my playmates that lived across the street
had the idea of digging in the soft sand on the side of the road near
the house, where the scraped lime rock ended. We got started and
hadn't made too deep a hole when we were called to supper. Later
that night our family gathered in the living room reading, doing
homework, etc., when suddenly there was a loud noise out front,
just as a car was going by. Then there was some loud talk; cussing,
I think and you know what I was thinking! My dad went out
immediately to see what was going on and to see if he could help.
Of course I didn't say a word and neither did my friend across the
street. Of all the people to come along and get too close to the edge
of the road and fall off into the hole we had dug, was the sheriff,
Mr. Frank Anderson. Well lucky for us, dogs got the blame for
digging the hole and we got taught a lesson. That ended our cave
digging. For a long time afterward we were worried every time we
saw the sheriff go by, but even more worried about what would
have happened if our parents had known that we dug the hole and
left it.
Fortunately no real harm was done and that put a stop to our
cave digging. I have wonderful memories of my childhood and
wouldn't trade them for the world. We were poor and
underprivileged by today's standard, but so was everyone else!

Local Fire Fighter


Takes It


Off For Locks of Love


',' ~1


Pictured above is Div. Chief Darian Brown (right), cuts Fire Fighter Rick
Baker's (left) two year growth of hair, which was sent to the Locks of Love
organization.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Local volunteer fire fighter, Rick Baker had been teased about his
long hair by Division Chief Darian Brown for months. Baker would
laugh and declined Brown's offer to cut it for him until a few weeks
ago. To Brown's surprise, Baker's answer changed one day and he
agreed to taking it off. However, Baker had a plan, one that would
make the drastic change in his "do" worth it; he would donate his cut
hair to Locks of Love.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On Friday, September 1, 2006, friends, co-workers and family came together at the Cross City
Park for a Benefit Dinner for Ben Simmons, Sr. who is fighting a rare cancer, Naso-Pharynx. The
park was filled with cookers, cooks, servers and other volunteers, all who made the dinner a success.
At the end of the day the total collected, which included monetary donations and donations for the
meals, came to $4,000!
While Ben has health insurance, it does not cover his treatments 100%. Ben's out-of-pocket
obligation will be in the neighborhood of $25,000. He recently, underwent radiation treatments,
which has shrunk the mass that is growing behind his ears and sinus area of this face. Ben will need
to continue his treatments in Tulsa, OK. Traveling to Oklahoma will be another burden on the
Simmons' family.
If you wish to help, you may do so by taking your donation to the Bank of America where a
-medical trust fund has been set up in Benjamin Simmons, Sr.'s name. You may also contact
'Elizabeth Dawson at 498-5720, for additional information on how you can help.
Ben and his family would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every person who
helped with the benefit. From the organizers, to the cooks, to the servers, to those who bought a
dinner, they send out their. heartfelt "thanks".
It is said that you never really know who your friends are until you need them. The Community
of Dixie County has shown the Simmons' Family that we are there for them. We will continue to
keep them in our prayers...

"Oh well, it's for a good
cause."


Baker is no stranger to helping
those who have been stricken with
cancer. His parents both died of
cancer and he has been a staunch
supporter of Hospice.
"I knew when I heard about the
Locks of Love program that I
wanted to help," Baker stated.
Locks of Love is a non-profit
organization that provides
hairpieces to children suffering
from long-term medical hair loss
caused by a condition call alopecia
areata, which has no cure. These
children are unable to afford hair


pieces themselves.
The hairpieces, or hair prosthetics, help to restore self-esteem and
confidence to the young patients.
After the cutting was over, Baker let out a little sigh and a little
frown; but in his heart he smiled when he thought of what it was
going to mean to some young boy or girl.
Brown stated, "All kidding aside, I am proud to be a part of a
team of volunteer fire fighters such as we have here in Dixie
County." "Rick is just one example of what dedicated and caring
people we have on our staff," he added. Brown also said he was
looking forward to a repeat "chopping" in two more years!

New Online Resources Benefit Community College

Students Statewide
CCLA Activates Nearly $4 Million in New LINCCWeb eResources


Students at Florida's community colleges
gained access today to $3.9 million in
additional electronic databases, e-journals and
eBooks to assist in learning and research. The
new resources are available via LINCCWeb
(www.linccweb.org), the web-based library
information portal used by more than 800,000
community college students statewide.
LINCCWeb is operated by the College Center
for Library Automation (CCLA), a program of
the state's Division of Community Colleges
and Workforce Education.

The Florida Legislature appropriated
funding for the new resources to be shared by
all community colleges. Representatives from
each college collaborated to select resources
that meet the information needs of today's
students.

"Until now, each college used local funds to
license resources for its students," said CCLA
Executive Director J. Richard Madaus.
"Because of that, students at some colleges had
access to significantly more online resources
than others. This new statewide approach
guarantees that every student has convenient
access to the same valuable resources
regardless of college size or location.
LINCCWeb is available to students 24 hours a
day, whenever and wherever they need it.
"This is a tremendous leap forward and a
continued indication of Florida's support for
its community colleges, their students and
libraries," he added.


About CCLA
CCLA operates the statewide Library
Information Network for Community Colleges
(LINCC) and associated web-based
information portal, LINCCWeb, from its
headquarters in Tallahassee, Florida. As an
administered program of the Florida
Department of Education's Division of
Community Colleges and Workforce
Education, CCLA serves 28 community

At least once each year, Springhouse Quilters hold
beginning quilting classes for new members joining the quilt and
wanting to learn to quilt. There are a total of six quilt blocks
taught with each one teaching a different technique of quilting. In
addition to the quilt blocks, new members are taught how to
assemble a quilt and complete it by hand quilting. The classes are
usually held from February to April, and are usually filled by the
fist class. It is the hope of Springhouse Quilting Guild that once
the new members are finished with the quilting classes, that they
are completely addicted to quilting.
Quilting brings many ladies together to form some very
wonderful, lasting friendships. Quilting ladies are always good
cooks, and quilting will most likely replace cooking. The next
addiction is the desire to have the largest fabric stash. The
strange thing even with a large stash, one never has the correct
amount of fabric or the correct color to complete a project so it is
back to a fabric shop for another stash purchase.
The new year for Springhouse will begin in January.
Members are now renewing their dues and for those wanting to
join Springhouse, now is a wonderful time to get into the
excitement of quilting and making new friends. The basic
requirement for being a member of Springhouse is that members
are expected to help with raffles, quilt shows, and participate in
each community project.
For information on Springhouse or becoming a, new
member, please contact Anna Gilliam, 463 7922 or Lois Scott 463

The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that God is going to call your
name. In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same.:It
broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone for part of us
went with you. The day God called you home you left us peaceful
memories your love is still our guide and though we cannot see
you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and
nothing seems the same but as God call us one by one and the
chain will link again.

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.

Dixie fighting


"Sparky" Joins The


EMS Fire Services Team


Left to right: Lt. Ryan Fulford-Paramedic, Darian Brown-Division Chief of Fire Operations,
Commissioner Alton Land, Director of Emergency Services Chad Reed, Commissioner Buddy Lamb,
"Sparky", Commissioners John Driggers, Marcus Hays, James Valentine and County Coordinator Arthur
Bellot.


This week's Dixie Sighting comes from our friends in Old Town, KC & Capt. Ron Campbell.
KC explained that when her husband first called for her to come out and see a big snake she thought
at first glance her dog had bitten it in half. If you look close at the picture you will see that it is in
fact, a snake eating another snake!
They went on the internet and identified the snakes as Black Racers, or blacksnakee" as most
people call them. Aptly named for its coloration and speed, the black racer is common in a wide
variety of habitats, most frequently in brush- or shrub-covered areas near water.
The adult racer is a slender, satiny snake, plain black or slate gray with a white or gray chin and
throat. Maximum length is about 70 inches, but most are 36-60 inches long. Persons otherwise
familiar with snakes are often "stumped" by young black racers, which are colored very differently
from the adults. For a year after hatching, racers are slate gray with regular rusty brown blotches
running down the back. Black racers shouldn't be mistaken for the threatened eastern indigo snakes,
which also are large, shiny and black. Indigos are much heavier, have a rusty or red chin and throat,
and are much more local in distribution.
Black racers are nervous, irritable and fast-moving. When given a chance to escape, they
generally do so very quickly. However, racers, especially juveniles, will not hesitate to bite when
cornered. They also vibrate their tails when they feel threatened, causing some people to mistake
them for rattlesnakes.
Unlike many snakes, the black racer hunts actively during daylight hours, one reason why they
are frequently noticed. The eyes, with their rich, chestnut-brown irises, are large in relation to its
head, betraying the racer's keen vision.
Part of the racer's success is due to its wide diet; they have been referred to as "slithering garbage
pails." Racers capture a tremendous variety of animals, including other snakes, lizards, frogs, birds,
rodents and insects. While hunting in open areas, the racer often raises its head high above the
ground, cobra-style, to survey its surroundings better.
Many of these characteristics are shared with the racer's larger cousin, the eastern coachwhip.
This snake can be over 8 feet long and frequents dry, open habitats including pine flatwoods,
sandhill and scrub. It's an active hunter and quick to bite in self-defense. Typically,/its head and front
quarter of the body are black to dark brown, which fades to light tan on the remainder of the body
and tail.
THANKS GUYS, for another great sighting and info!

More about the caterpillars... We have had several emails come through about the caterpillars
that were featured in the past two issues of the Advocate. Wendy Guenette of Old Town wrote to us,
stating she had also found a caterpillar like the one pictured last week in her back yard. After some
research she found that its true name is hickory-horned-devil-royal-walnut-moth.
Debra Moore, also of Old Town, concurred. Debra noted that the larva, the hickory horned devil,
is one of the largest found in our area; growing 100-125 mm long. The caterpillars are found from
July through September. When they are fully grown they burrow in the ground and pupate. When
they immerse they come out as the royal walnut moth. It has a wingspan of 100-125 mm. Its body is
orange with some yellow markings. The front wings are grayish with red-orange veins and yellow
spots. Debra suggests that you go to http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/bfly/regal moth.htm to find out
more about this beautiful moth.
Our identifier from last week, Toni Shores & John Wilkerson, concurred that it was a hickory
horned devil and wrote back with a correction, stating that they found out that both caterpillars were
one in the same.
Thanks to you all!

723 E. Wade Street Trenton, FL 32693


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Director of Emergency Services, Chad
Reed introduced his newest crewmember,
"Sparky", to the Board of County
Commissioners at the last Board meeting on
September 7th, 2006. "Sparky" is to local fire
fighters, as Smokey is to the Division of
Forestry, and Dixie Fire Services couldn't be
happier to have the K-9 on their team.
Sparky's outerwear came via a fire
prevention grant from the Division of Forestry.
The $2,000 grant was applied for last year.
"We were excited to hear that the grant was
awarded to us," stated Darian Brown, Division

After I'm dead I'd rather I IRON F
have people ask why I
have no monument than
why I have one.
-Cato the Elder Takil


Chief of Fire Operations. "Sparky will be a"-
great educational tool for fire prevention,"
Brown added.
Sparky had his debut at the
Commissioner's Meeting and then visited the
entire courthouse staff. He will begin his real
work of teaching fire safety and prevention by
visiting area schools during Fire Prevention
Week in October. The remainder of the year he
will be kept busy attending parades, career day
events, just being visible whenever he can.

Welcome to Dixie, Sparky!
