After months of negotiations and fine tuning, the Dixie County Board of County Commissioners signed an agreement with the
Steinhatchee Water Association, Inc. (SWA) to provide water and sewer services for the unincorporated Township of Jena. While new
development will be required to hook to the new system, existing residents will have the choice as to whether they want SWA to provide
service to them.
With the fast growth that is occurring in the Jena community, this issue has been one of top priority and was not voted on lightly.
"We formed a committee the beginning of the year that had our County Coordinator Arthur Bellot, our County Lawyer Lindsey Lander,
a number of realtors and I that looked into what SWA had to offer," stated James Valentine. "We knew that time was beginning to
become critical with the growth in Jena exploding and decided after a great deal of reviewing all our options that this agreement with

Should the Pope apologize?
Pope Benedict XVI recently made some remarks that infuriated
Muslims. Actually, the Pope was just reading a statement made by
a Byzantine emperor several centuries ago, in which the teachings
of the Prophet Mohammed were characterized as sometimes "evil
and inhuman," particularly the admonition for Muslims to "spread
by the sword the faith he preached."
I once took a college course in New Testament History (and I
actually passed!) in which our instructor (an ordained minister with
a doctorate) happened to remark that, for someone of the Islamic
faith to follow his conscience, he would have to kill anyone he
could not persuade to convert, and I have since seen no reason to
question the accuracy of his statement.
Granted, that was about 50 years ago, at which time not only
could the Bible be taught as accurate and authoritative in a state
supported school, a professor could freely criticize the "peaceful
religion of Islam." Today, the President of the United States is
afraid to, it's hard to find a professor who would even want to, and
the Pope is going overboard in expressing regret that any Muslims
:might have been offended by what he said.
Meanwhile, Iranian newspapers are blaming the Pope's
remarks on Israel and the United States (Western governments
write the scripts for the Pope's speeches? Sure they do.), Muslims
are burning Christian churches and shooting at churchgoers in
TPalestine (they've been shooting at Israelis right along), Islamic
"leaders are saying the Pope's expression of regret is not
-enough-essentially, they want him to grovel-the Pope's security
guard has been beefed up, a Catholic nun in Somalia has been
,assassinated, a London-based Arabic language newspaper is
.threatening war over the Pope's remarks and a "Muslim extremist"
,in that city has called for the Pope's assassination.
By the way, I thought we were already at war with Islam. Isn't
:'"jihad" another name for holy war? Isn't that what they're doing
.when they hijack jetliners and fly them into New York City
,skyscrapers and all this other stuff they've been doing? Or is it just
that so many of us refuse to believe there's a war going on?
These towel-heads can get bent out of shape over something as
'simple as a cartoon of their illustrious leader. In Europe, they've
infiltrated to the point that they kill citizens who do something that
annoys them. A Muslim terrorist cell in London had hatched a
scheme to blow up several jetliners headed for the United States.
Fortunately, some on-the-ball police work foiled their plot, but
they'll try again.
"Moderate" Islamic leaders who say little or nothing to
condemn the outrages committed by their militant brethren will
.-howl just as loudly as the acknowledged extremists when someone
publishes a cartoon of Mohammed or the Pope quotes a Medieval
emperor who is critical of the Prophet. Shouldn't that make us
'wonder if there actually is any such thing as a "moderate" Muslim?
In Japan during World War II, Shintoism was the official state
religion. Emperor Hirohito was esteemed as highly as the Prophet
Mohammed is among Muslims. So, did our leaders, educators and
celebrities walk on eggshells to keep from offending our enemy? I
wish I'd saved some of the outrageous cartoons of Japan's glorious
emperor-and he was just a figurehead monarch with minimal
input as to whether or not his country went to war.
Of course, now we have bleeding hearts agonizing over the fact
that we relocated Japanese nationals inland from the California
coast and later dropped the A-bombs that ended the war while
saving the lives of as many as a million American servicemen, and
quite likely twice as many Japanese.
No such accommodating attitude would have defeated an
enemy 61 years ago, and it won't defeat one today.

Letter To The Editor
September 7, 2006
Dear Editor:
Alas! Another year has rolled around and again Hal Chewning Jr.,
Dixie County Tax Appraiser seems not to be present and
accountable to Dixie County residents.
As instructed, I called and made an appointment with Mr.
Chewning for August 31 at 2:00 P.M. to discuss my 2006 tax
appraisal. Upon arrival, a staff member asked me if they could help
me, I said I had an appointment with Mr. Chewning, and sat down
to wait. Instead, someone else came out of an office, not introducing
himself, said we could talk in his office. Hhhhhhmmmm, he made
every effort to appease me, a behavior I detest. Needless to say, I left
with the same thing I arrived with. NOTHING. So how is Ray
Hodges? Hal Chewning, Jr., why did you not have the common
courtesy to call and reschedule? Your behavior speaks loud and
clear and now Dixie County residents are listening.
As with past years, my taxes are going up while friends and
neighbors are decreased or staying the same; and I have made NO
IMPROVEMENTS to my property. Anyone wishing to verify my
tax record or anyone else, I encourage you to go to:
HTTP://DIXIEFL.PATRIOTPROPERTIES.COM/, you just
might be very surprised. Find out the happenings of the Dixie
County Tax Appraiser. In the mean time, I'll wait for my ongoing
increase. Every time I complain or say something my taxes go up.
Anyone else having the same problem?

"AGREEMENT"
Continued from page 1

SWA is what is best for the county and residents alike," he
added. Valentine wanted to stress that SWA is not a part of the
Taylor County Commission, they are a not-for-profit corporation:
and are independent of any governmental entity, as some have:
suggested. '"The consensus of the committee is that the SWA.
agreement will provide for growth in the area with the least
possible financial impact on current residents of the three options
that were considered," stated Bellot.
The agreement, signed at the last Board meeting on September,
7th states that SWA will provide water and sewer services to Jena,,
and existing single family homes will riot be required to connect to
SWA's systems (water or waste). It is important to note that per
the request of the Commissioners, that before any other,
requirements are mandated for other areas, such as Rocky Creek;,
SWA will have to go back before the Board and have any.
additional areas redefined. The agreement also specifies that a
Dixie County Commissioner representing Jena (or his designee)
will serve on the Steinhatchee Water Association's Board, giving
Dixie a part in any future decisions of the SWA Board. On a final
note, the agreement has a termination clause that will allow Dixie
to terminate their agreement, if they choose to do so, with a 12
month notice.
The Steinhatchee Water Association is currently developing a
plan for a regional utility that can better serve both Dixie and
Taylor Counties. Already a number of developers have come on
board to aid in the installation of infrastructure that will reduce the
costs to the existing residents who wish to connect to the system.
Their theory (SWA) is that development shouldn't be allowed
to impact the existing residents, and the county agrees. In order to
avoid the higher costs of a larger system, when developments are
added to the Jena and Steinhatchee communities, they (developers)
are being required to install the necessary infrastructure for the
developments as they happen.
Cost to hook to the SWA system is $6,500 per unit. Concerrts
about this cost added to a $3,500 impact fee can be looked at ili
several ways While it is a significantly large amount, it is a one-
time cost. Also, because this system is a "pay as you go", and ndt
through a 40 year loan like Suwannee is currently still paying fo',
monthly charges can be maintained at a reasonable rate.
The pros for the county are that they are able to acquire these
services without having a financial impact on the county. They
won't have to hire personnel to maintain, operate, do the billing,
etc. They also won't have to hire an engineer, legal staff dr
financial advisor, which they would be required to do if they were
to apply for a grant and build it on their own. And lastly, the time
table to service is greatly reduced. To get funding, design,
construct and build a plant is a 3-5 year process; SWA will be
online to add sewer service by May of 2007 (8-months). This
agreement is a great savings to taxpayers, especially those who are
being grandfathered in.
Recently SWA installed a 6" water main under Hwy 358 arid
down 902nd Street in Stewart City. Three fire hydrates were
installed on this line as well and a 4" sewer main was added in
anticipation of coming to this agreement. It was noted that those
fire hydrates alone will benefit residents, possibly reducing their
homeowners insurance, not to mention provide essential water for
fire fighting.
SWA is more than ready to accommodate Jena residents arid
have purchased 22,000 feet of 8" water main pipe to be installed
on various projects throughout the system. A 160 foot boring of 8"
pipe at the north end of SWA's system in Jena was recently
performed in anticipation of a second crossing of the Steinhatchee
River in order to increase the water supply to customers there.
If this arrangement goes as both SWA and the Board of County
Commissioners feel it will go, future plans to expand beyond Jena
may be possible in the near future.
SWA has their annual meeting of members on the 3rd of
October at the Steinhatchee Community Center beginning at 6piim.
All members of the SWA are encouraged to attend as well as thie
public at large.

Annual "Family Day"

Set For September 25th
Family Day A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children,TM,
celebrated every year on the fourth Monday in September,
September 25, 2006, is a national initiative that promotes regular
family activities in parent-child communications and regular
family dinners as simple and effective ways to reduce children's
and teens' risk of smoking, drinking and using illegal drugs.
The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at
Columbia University (CASA) launched Family Day in 2001. Since
that time the President, 47 governors and more than 500 mayors
and county executive proclaimed Family Day. It is a day when
Americans pledge to sit down for dinner as a family for a time of
good food and great conversations.
Did you know that eating dinner frequently with your children
reduces their risk of substance abuse? CASA research shows that
children and teens who have frequent family dinners are at half the
risk for substance abuse; less likely to have friends and classmate
who sue drugs; are likelier to get better grades in school; have
lower levers of tension and stress at home; are likelier to say they
can confide in their parents; and are more likely to be emotionally,
content and have positive peer relationships.
What have you got to loose? Set aside your family time for
September 25th... .you may just find out that being together is fun!

"BOA TING ACCIDENT"
Continued from page I


the couple, Jesse Lee Carr, 51 and Brenda Carr, 51, of Plant City, was listed in serious, but stable
condition the day after the incident. However, investigators were able to talk to the victims who
stated they were trying to avoid a large fish (possibly a sturgeon) who had jumped in front of their
boat when they crashed into the middle piling of the trestle.
Witnesses noted the boat was traveling north at an estimated 40mph when it struck the piling.
Fortunately the 1999, 17ft Bayliner didn't hit head-on. However, the impact caused the boat to swing
around and run up onto an embankment, just missing a concrete wall.
Brenda was ejected from the boat and was floating face-down after the boat hit. Her husband,
Jesse, hit the console, but remained in the boat.
Frank Evans and Joe Jacobs were on the top of the bridge and witnessed the accident. Joe was
fishing and Frank was taking a break from rollerblading and had stopped to talk to Joe just before the
accident occurred. When the men looked down they saw Brenda and Frank went into action, taking
off his rollerblades and ran down the embankment, jumped in the river, pulling the unconscious
Brenda from the water. The humble Englishman, now a Dixie resident, stated he was just glad that
he was able to help.
Rescue workers arrived only minutes after the call and rallied together to get the injured pair up a
steep embankment. Brenda would be the first to be put in the ambulance and taken to the helipad,
just a few yards from the scene of the accident. Jesse, who was feared to have sustained neck
injuries, was next to be lifted by the crew and then transported to the helipad where the couple were
airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
Brenda's injuries included broken pelvis and bruising to her arm. Jesse also has a broken pelvis
as well as multiple lacerations and contusions to his face.
FWC officials stated that the incident is still under investigation, but no charges will be filed
against Carr. It was noted that recently the FWC placed signs all along the Suwannee River warning
boaters that sturgeon are in the area and recommend they travel at a slower speed so they can
increase reaction time if they should jump in front of them.

"CHASE"
Continued from page 1


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
I Christopher Mark Fortune, 34, of Old Town remains in the
Dixie County Jail on multiple charges that stemmed from him
leading law enforcement officers on a high speed chase last
Tuesday, September 12, 2006. During the chase Fortune hit
several patrol cars and was issued 13 citations as well as 9 separate
charges.
According to a report filed
by Cross City Police Officer, .
Bob Owens, the incident began
when his office received a
complaint about a man driving (-
around in a residential area and .
shouting. When the officer f
approached the suspect, who .
was still driving, he turned on .
his lights to pull him over.
Instead of stopping, the suspect
fled, running a number of stop .'
signs.
: As other law enforcement
joined in the pursuit, Fortune Christopher Mark Fortune
continued to weave his way in
and out of parking lots and at one point hit Deputy Julie Herring's
patrol car several times as well as Officer Owens'.
Fortune was stopped in a ditch along US Hwy 19,
approximately 5 miles out of the city limits. When asked to get out
of his car, Fortune resisted arrest.
When he finally got out of his vehicle he was arrested and
charged with 3 counts of Fleeing & Eluding Officers, 4 counts of
Battery on Law Enforcement Officer, 1 count of reckless driving
and Icount of Resisting Arrest With Violence.
Fortune remained in the Dixie County Jail as of press time.
Bond was set at $150,000.

"CBRS"
Continued from page 1

Katherine was stillborn. The
Logullo's argument as to why
the legislature should pass the
bill stated that it was not fair
for the parents of stillborn
children to only get a death
certificate with no official
acknowledgment that the baby
was born.
Loosing a child through
stillbirth is heartbreaking.
Shawn and Patricia Daniel of
Cross City, are praising this
bill. "This is something I hold
very close to my heart," stated
Patricia. The Daniel's lost a
son, Hayden Trent Daniel, on
September 4, 2004; just eight
weeks shy of her due date.
"I got to name him, hold
him, bathe him, get foot and
hand prints, dress him, take
pictures of him, we got his
weight, height, and even gave
him his first and only haircut,"
Patricia shared. "We even had
a funeral for our stillborn son,"
she added. The only thing they
didn't have was a certificate
stating that he had lived.
"There was noting to
announce that my child was
once alive. There was nothing
saying he kicked me in the ribs
every chance he got, he got
hick-ups everyday, he looked
just like his daddy, or he had a
strong heartbeat up until that
one moment," Patricia said.
"But now there is something
that will validate his life. What
an unexpected gift."
Patricia added that she
hoped that the word would get
out and reach all parents of
still born babies.
Katherine's Law was


signed on June 6, 2006 and
passed unanimously in the
Florid House of
Representatives and Senate.
The law came into effect on
July 1, 2006 making Florida
the 14 h state to offer the
certificates.
CBRS is an optional
document and are only given at
the parent's request. For those
wishing to receive a certificate,
regardless of when you lost
your child; they need to
contact their local health
department in October when
they become available. Parents
must provide Fetal Death
Certificate.

"DAWSON"
Continued from page 1

I, Marcellus Dawson
would like to take this
opportunity to announce my
candidacy for reelection to a
seat on the City Council of the
Town of Cross City.
I am presently married to
Elizabeth Dawson, my lovely
wife of 46 V2 years. We have
four children, nine
grandchildren, and one great-
grandchild. God has blessed
me to serve this great county
for many years.
I served a tour of duty
during the Korean War, served
as a correctional officer with
the Department of Corrections,
served as a Deputy Sheriff
with the Dixie County
Sheriff's Department, served
as a policeman and Police
Chief with the Cross City
Police Department, and I am
presently serving as a
councilman with the Town of
Cross City.
During my service with the


Town of Cross City, many
important projects have been
completed for the benefit of
the citizens of Cross City
including: 1) rebuilt our water
plant; 2) improving the sewer
system and added a new
sprayfield; 3) payment of
streets and re-paving many
other damaged streets.
We just broke ground for a
new recreational park due to
environmental issues. My
utmost concern is the welfare
and safety of our children.
As a councilman working
with our local law enforcement
team, we are making every
effort to make a better
environment for our citizens.
Every effort is needed with
everyone pulling together for
the benefit of all.
Your vote and support for
Marcellus Dawson on
Tuesday, October 2nd will be
highly appreciated.

A Mother's Child,
A mother's child is every breath that she takes, walking
hand in hand, they are every step that she makes. And as
their steps will grow to strides, still a child, in mother's
eyes. Every ache and pain they shall feel, mother will share
and with love she will kneel. She will pray to God to take
care of her child, to protect and guide them through every
mile. Her child is the 'very core of her soul, from baby in
arms to an adult they will grow. For a mother, her child
will stay, the precious infant she held that day.


S You're grown up, but I still see. The little boy you use to
be. Playing tricks and hide and seek, something new every
week. Cars and trucks and dirty bugs. Lots of sticky kisses
and hugs. Those days were filled with love, and everything
you dreamed of. You've made me so proud of you, I see
my dreams came true. When I look into your eyes, and the
S. little boy I recognize. My love grows more everyday. In my.
heart you'll always stay. Thank you for being my son.




Attend The Church Of TYour Choice This Week


The Word

Made Flesh

MIark, Number, & Name of the
Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say look at the
Damal minded people today who
belong to churches everywhere.
They are trying to tell everybody
that heaven is going to be their
Home, and yet, they can't get
together on divine vision. Do you
know why they are doing these
things? Carnality has them and
they are running from God -
refusing to come to the knowledge
.of the truth, and love nothing but
'the truth.
Read the Apostle Paul's
,writing in II Thessalonians 2:7-12.
-Right in this carnality that is
"working in mankind is the old
,beast man and the old beast
,woman, working AFTER THE
;-FLESH.
I, the son of man, say in the
13th Chapter of Revelation a beast
*rose up out of the sea. This beast
*had so much power and authority
.he caused all that dwell upon the
,earth to worship him. Power was
given unto him to continue forty
and two months. He will reign
while the Gentiles are treading the
,"Holy City under foot forty and two
s.months. All that dwell upon the
,earth shall worship the beast,
'whose names are not written in the
Book of Life of the lamb slain
from the foundation of the world.
(Revelation 11:2 and
Revelation 13:5-8) Move on down
to the last three versus of this
chapter, which would be verses
16, 17, and 18. I, the son of man,
say keep in mind there was a beast
that rose up out of the sea. He had
all the power of the first beast
which was seen in Heaven. This
does say in Heaven. Most of our
Bible readers take Heaven to be
the natural elements sky, moon,
and the stars, etc. This is not true.
,The Heaven of Heavens
mentioned through the Bible is the
,-real spiritual Heaven all the way
-from creation. Do not mix the
natural way of putting the real
Heaven up somewhere in the open
sky (natural elements) with the
real. This is not true and never will
be true.
The real Heaven is in the Holy
Ghost and can't be anywhere else.
I, the son of man, say here is
where the carnal mind takes over
and makes us look at everything
naturally, not being able to see
spiritually. Read 1 Corinthians
4:18. This is speaking of now,
*present tense. We are not reading
'about natural things when we read
,this verse, but we are reading
about the things which are .not
seen these are eternal. Continued
next week.

God Bless each one of you,
Hazel Pyle & Families
Behold The Tabernacle of God
Revelation 21:3
"God"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say it is not a
question of how much you sinned, nor is it of how long you have sinned,
on the cross Christ paid the full price for it. God took it all out of His son
so that in the mind of God it is no longer imputed unto your account.
Christ settled the bill in full. It is only a matter of time until you come to
the place that you will accept His redemptive work in your behalf, and as
you do, you are free.
For "He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also
for the sins of the whole world." (John 2:2).
I, the Day of the Lord, say circumstances, so ordered by Christ, will
discipline and subdue mankind until ultimately all shall willingly accept
Him as Lord and Saviour. And whereas all of our salvation comes to us by
the grace of God, and not by works, then it is no longer a question of how
great a sinner, nor how hard and difficult the circumstances but how
mighty and how effective is the power of God?
I, the Day of the Lord, say Christ is our propitiation. Propitiation
means, to appease and render favorable. This same word has been
translated once in the book of Hebrews as "mercy seat". Christ has now
become our Mercy Seat, the place where we find atonement. Thus He is
our Altar of sacrifice, He is the Lamb lain upon the altar, and He is also
the High Priest who offered Himself for us. Altar, sacrifice, High Priest -
He has become it all for us.
I, the Day of the Lord, say also this word propitiationn" is almost the
same as the word "reconcile". For Christ has broken down the wall and
brought us into favor with God again. Notice the prefix Re-concile;
implying that once there was peace, fellowship, communion, between
creation and God. All things are out of God, but the alienation caused by
sin and selfhood requires reconciliation. The magnitude of God's glorious
redemptive plan can only be received by the quickening of the Spirit, but
we must not close our hearts and minds to the truth, nor allow anything to
rob us of that which has been ordained for us. Continued next week.

Faith Baptist Church News
It was wonderful to be in the House of the Lord today. Brother
Jackie delivered two beautiful messages that God had laid on his
heart. In the morning service, Buddy & Dot Britton did the special
music, singing "Hallelujah Square" and in the evening service
Brother Jim Fisher sang "Consider The Lilies". Both did excellent
jobs and the Spirit was moving among us. In the evening service,
Brother Jackie gave us all the time to Praise God for the blessings
He sends our way. Many testified and it was very touching.
Next Sunday, Julie Boyd and her puppets will do the morning
service from the children's home. She is very good and adults love
her program, but children are especially fond of it. So, please come
out and bring your children. All will receive a blessing.
We have some special business meetings coming up in the next
couple of weeks to approve the budget for the coming year and to
approve the church profile for the past year. These will be
announced at the regular church services prior to the dates of the
meetings.
We still have a few openings for church officers and if you
have a talent that God has given to you, sign up and use that talent
for Him. He will bless you for it.
In the coming week, remember to pray for the sick, bereaved,
and just the less fortunate. Especially pray for someone who is lost.
It is our duty as Christians to uplift those around us no matter what
their need may be. Invite someone to come to Sunday school and
Church with you. Think of the blessings you both would receive if
just one person was saved because of your invitation. May God
keep you happy, healthy and safe in the coining week and we'll be
looking for you in church Wednesday night and again next
Sunday.

New Prospect Baptist News
As autumn nears; we look forward to the cooler weather,
another of God's blessings upon us. We were also blessed with a
full house Sunday, among whom there were several visitors. Our
singing group, Aimee, Kelly, and Tracey (missing April), sang a
beautiful special for us...fantastic job, girls! Again, our choir and
musicians were outstanding, and Bro. Billy did a superb job of
delivering God's messages, choosing his text from Luke 13:22-28a
and Proverbs 28:13-14, morning and evening services,
respectively. It is always good to be in God's house to worship His
holy name, and see what blessings He has in store for us!
This Wednesday evening, Sept. 20th, we will have our monthly
Fellowship Supper, in combination with a baptismal service, at the
former KOA campground on the banks of the Suwannee. We're
looking forward to Spiritual blessings, good food, and lots of fun!
On Monday evening, Sept. 25th, our Ladies' Ministry will hold its
monthly meeting.
If you happen to be looking for a church to visit or call home,
please cofie on out to New Prospect and. fellowship with us...we'll
be delighted to have you anytime! Have a good week, and please
remember to be in prayer for the world situation, our President and
other leaders, members of our armed forces, and the many people
on church prayer lists here at home. May God bless you.

Thank You From' Our Hearts
Sometimes in our day-to-day living we forget how important
and fragile the gift of a life is that God has given us all. On
Saturday, May 20, 2006 our family found out how quickly life can
be snatched away. On that fateful day our loved one was brought
near death's door. Shay was so severely injured that on the
helicopter flight emergency attendants were doubtful he would
live. That's when the power of prayer stepped in. Prayer chains
were started that reached as far away.as Texas and Virginia. In the
days following the accident many more would flood the Gates of
Heaven on Shay's behalf. God heard those prayers, began Shay's
healing, and gave a son back to his parents, a husband back to his
wife and children, and sent His wonderful grace to many others
through this ordeal.
Our family would like to express our appreciation for all the
prayers, pep talks, and support given to us during this time. If you
were one of those who prayed, helped with monetary gifts, cooked
and served at the benefit for Shay, our family will be forever
grateful to you. To all those who helped organize the benefit, those
who gave their time to cook and serve, and all those who
purchased the dinners, words cannot express our gratitude to you.
For all this and the prayers, phone calls, and concern, we sincerely
hope God will Bless each and everyone. God has shown His loving
presence to our family through Shay's injury. It is our hope and
prayer that others also were able to see how good and great is the
God we serve. Shay is still recovering and we ask that you
continue to pray for him and his family. We will always be
thankful for the love and kindness of the people of our county.
Thank you all and may God richly bless you.
With love,
The family of Shay Knight

Frank Taylor of Rocky Creek is shown holding up a whopper
of a Red Fish. Frank caught this whopper of a fish last week in
an undisclosed spot. The "big red" weighed in at 22 pounds and
was 37 inches long. It was noted that the fish was released back
into the water so it could live for another lucky fisherman to
catch another day. Congratulations, Frank...you are the man!

FWC Weekly
Law Enforcement Report
September 8 14, 2006
This report represents some significant events the FWC
handled over the past week; however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of Law Enforcement.
DIXIE COUNTY Sept. 8, Officer Travis Cooper found a
deer that had been shot and killed off of Log Landing Road.
Cooper, along with Investigator Larry Ayers and Officers Justin
Allen, Zack Clark, Gary Jones, Darby Butler and Sam Dishman
with K9 "Bear," began an investigation. Cooper had been
patrolling the area and noticed a truck in the area the night before.
From the description of the truck and its tire sign, the truck was
located at a nearby residence. After several interviews, two
subjects were located and admitted to killing the deer. One of the
subjects also admitted to killing two more deer earlier this month
in Dixie County. Cooper wrote five citations for illegally taking
deer during the closed season and seized two rifles.
LEVY COUNTY During the weekend Investigator Chip
Bradshaw was working in the Goethe Wildlife Management Area
(WMA). He came across individuals picking large amounts of
palmetto berries. Bradshaw observed a crew of approximately 12
people harvesting the berries. He located four other people who
were the drivers/supervisors of the work crew. With the help of
Officer Sam Dishman and Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services (DACS) Investigator Wade Merrit, it was
determined that 11,000 to 12,000 pounds of berries had been
harvested from the WMA. There were a total of four citations
issued by Bradshaw and Merrit for illegally removing plant life
from Goethe WMA. Merrit, being the representative of the
landowner (State Forest), directed the subjects to disperse the
berries back onto the property and remove the empty bags.
SUWANNEE COUNTY Last week, Investigators Guy
Carpenter and Neal Martin made a marijuana possession case
against a defendant they had been watching on the Suwannee
River. Further investigation later in the week resulted in the
charge being raised to a felony by the State Attorney's Office and a
second person charged. After the investigators weighed the
suspected marijuana and determined it to be a felony amount.

A committee assigned to
examine issues involving non-
motorized vessels voted to
recommend not requiring
registration of non-motorized
vessels when the state's
Boating Advisory Council
(BAC) meets in December. The
recommendation passed by.a 4-
3 vote.
The Non-motorized Vessel
Subcommittee will, however,
recommend non-motorized
vessel operators be included in
Florida's boater education
requirements. It also will
recommend state-approved
education courses strengthen
their educational component
for non-motorized vessels.
The BAC will review these
recommendations and decide if
a formal proposal to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is appropriate for
future legislative action.
Non-motorized vessels
include canoes, kayaks.

JV Bears Ice The Red Devils


"Kicker" Cassidy increases the score with this outstanding kick last
Friday night as the Bears defeated Jefferson County 24-12.


" The Bears, on the road, last Friday night
produced a win over the Jefferson County
Tigers, 24-12. This seemed to be their best
game of the season so far. The Bear defense
was able to out-scramble the Tigers and the
offense worked hard for every Dixie County
point.
The Tigers scored first with 6:28 left in
the first period, but were held to only six
points when the Bears blocked their extra
point attempt. Dixie County came back and
scored in the opening minutes of the second
quarter when Osteen handed the ball to Scott
for a six-yard sprint. "Kicker" Cassidy added
the extra point putting the Bears up by one
point. Late in the second quarter the Bears
allowed the Tigers to score again making the
score 12-7 at halftime.
Coach Wilkerson's halftime pep talk
must have hit the spot because the Bears
came out 'ready' to play ball. Early in the
second half a fumble recovery set the Bears
up to score on another Osteen-Scott
combination. "Kicker" added the extra point
and the Bears once again took the lead.
During the next series, another Tiger fumble
set up a field goal shot for Dixie County.
From about the 15-yard line Cassidy split the
poles adding three to the Dixie County score


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin
Making a drive to remember
KNOXVILLE Urban Meyer has called everybody but Triple
S.,, A about his road woes, knowing full well that until his
Florida football team learns the secret about how to
win football games in enemy territory, championships .'. :
are but a pipe dream. ''
In visits to Baton Rouge, Tuscaloosa and even '.
;..-Columbia last year, Meyer came up a'loser three -
lime ,
Ncyljnd Sladium is not a place where the Gators
Shjve lajked success over the years, having split the
last etigh gamrrs since 1990. As the 2-0 Gators teed it
up as a 3-point favorite against the Vols Saturday
night, expectations for improvement were substantial.
But self-inflicted wounds like penalties, turnovers
and mental mistakes kept the Gators in trouble as Tennessee
scored- 17 unanswered points before' a crowd of 106,818 at
I Neyland Stadium.
Furthermore, Meyer and offensive coordinator Dan Mullen
had built much of the game plan around freshman wideout Percy
Harvin playing tailback, except that Harvin went out in the second
quaner with ankle sprain and never returned.
Sill, even after all that, the road win was there for the taking.
The game was on the table when Florida, behind 20-14, got the
ball back at its own 35 after Keystahn Moore wisely let the
l'c. ikc!cotf bounce out of bounce out of bounds with just over 10
nmmuies to play. Sixty five yards of green grass were all that stood
in the way of a go-ahead touchdown and maybe new beginnings.
But had this Florida team grown up enough to finish the job?
l'," We may look back at it as the turning point for Florida.. The
drive was one to remember: Only two passes were thrown,
* blocking was crisp and when needed, backup quarterback Tim
0 Tebow was there to crunch out a first down.
Championship teams know how to finish the job and find a
way to do it even under the$ most adverse of conditions. Meyer
had been preparing his team for moments like this. That's why he
ran his offense with a "silent count" last week at home against
Central Florida.
Finally, some of the work he had put on his tailback getting
tougher began to play off. The forgotten DeShawn Wynn, who

took the carries Harvin was to get, reeled over 26 of his 104 yards
rushing to set up the winning score.
"To get out of a game'like that we needed a play," Meyer said.
And the Gators found it when Chris Leak hit Dallas Baker on a
beautiful 21-yard crossing, route for the touchdown and Chris
Hetland kicked Florida into the lead, 21-20, with 6:30 to play.
A defense that had held Tennessee to minus-11 yards rushing
came to the rescue again as defensive back Reggie Nelson
intercepted Erik Ainge's fourth down pass. Game, set, match.
"We mixed up it nice," Meyer said of the winning drive after
Florida's first SEC win of the season. "The SEC is amazing. This
: was good for college football-two good teams really going at it."
I asked Meyer if he felt his team had finally conquered the
road demons.
"Nah," he said. "We've got to go on the road next to Auburn.
Right now I'm more worried about having a safe trip home,
getting back to practice, playing Ketucky next Saturday and going
to class and living right."
Plus, they've got three straight dates now in "The Swamp."
Quick Jump Starts
1. OK, after three weeks I am now positive that the new college
football clock rules were designed by a bunch of fired defensive
coordinators, conspiring to save the jobs of their employed


giving them a 17-12 advantage. The game at
this point turned into a battle, with both teams
working through flags and fumbles and with
neither team able to move the ball. As the
clock wound down to the last minutes of the
game and the Tigers were in possession of the
ball and seemed on the verge of scoring but
Dixie's defense dug their heels in and with 37
seconds left on the clock, tremendous
pressure by the Bear defense caused yet
another Tiger fumble. Rodney Scott scooped
up the ball and drifted into the end zone' for
the Bear's final touchdown. "Kicker" Cassidy
did his thing and the Bears end it for the
Tigers, 24-12, Dixie County style.
The Bear defense deserves accolades for
the tenacity in which they pursued the Tigers.
The Tigers were fast but the Bears made them
scramble almost every time they had the ball.
The DC offense held tough even though the
Tigers blitzed almost ever play. All in all it
shows that the Bears are maturing and
learning how to be a great ball team,
Now at 4 and 0 the Bears will play host
to the Williston Devils Friday night. It seems
they are apparently every bit as tough as any
team the Bears have played so far, but the
Devils will certainly have their hands full on
Friday night. GO BIG RED!


colleagues
2. Through a quirk in the scheduling because of horse-trading
between CBS and ESPN,
right now the Florida-Auburn game is scheduled for the night
of Oct. 14 on ESPN.
3. Just wondering, now that the new local pro baseball team has
adopted the name "Charlotte Redfish" if there
-. --..-- will be a legal limit put on how many runs they
W ', ^-:. will be allowed to score.
S w 4. Until he hit his 50th home run he had 56
i for the Phillies through Friday -- most of us
thought Ryan Howard was the son of movie
-'.- producer Ron Howard.
5. Another miracle recovery: Earlier in the
week, senior Vol defensive tackle Justin Harrell
was "out for the season," but somehow
recovered and played as one of the game
captains against Florida.
Short Stuff
Florida wide receiver Dallas Baker was on his best behavior
Saturday night, given that two years ago he was penalized for
head-slapping in retaliation of a push by Vols defensive back
Jonathan Wade here which led to Tennessee's winning field goal
...The Vols were seeking their real 100th victory over a ranked
team, given that one of the 100 was a forfeit to them by Alabama
...Going.into Saturday's game, nine of the last 11 losses by Meyer
had been in road games another reason he asked Lou Holtz to
counsel Gator players on how to win in enemy territory.
This Just In
We may never know the truth about Reggie Bush and the
illegal payments allegedly made to the former USC star because
of the powerful PR machine behind him, but my hat's off to the
former Miami Herald reporter, Jason Cole and co-hort Charles
Robinson, who have been working on this story for months.
There's just too much smoke there not to have had a fire and I'm
not talking about a little brush fire, either. Stories like this one -
and steroid usage by athletes are getting tougher and tougher to
ferret out today because of the adroit manner in which they are
covered up.

On the way for a Bear touchdown!


The JV Bears beat the Williston Red Devilsl8-6 at home
last Thursday. Coach Hope told the team to pat themselves on
the back for a game that showed character and heart.
Neither team was able to score until late in the second
quarter when the Bears made a touchdown. Quarterback Godbolt
handed the ball off to Erick Dicks, who ran the ball in to score
for Dixie. The extra point attempt was no good, leaving the score
6-0.
The second half started with the Red Devils scoring on the
second play, but fumbling the extra point attempt. The next set
of plays saw the Bears fumble with Williston recovering and
then Williston fumbling and Godbolt recovered it for the Bears
and running it in a TD for Dixie making the score 12-6.
The Bears kept the Devils from scoring and deep in the
fourth quarter the Bears intercepted a pass, giving the Bears
possession. In the first play Godbolt handed the ball off to Erick
Dicks, who ran it in for the touchdown making the score 18-6.
With about a minute to go the Bears intercepted another pass and
finished the game for the Devils.
In the post-game huddle, Coach Hope said that the offensive
line did an outstanding job. "The whole team fought well and
found heart in this game. We still have to work hard at getting
better, we can't make mistakes against Ft. White", he told the
team. Next week the JV team travels to Ft. White for a tough
road show. GO BEARS!

Game To

Chiefland

Braves
Despite some mighty fine
cheering from the Bear
Cheerleaders, the Bears lost to
the Braves 22-0. The Bears
played hard but could not
overcome a tough Braves lindy
and numerous penalties. Some
of the outstanding Bearg
players this game were on th&
defense who tried to hold up
the Braves so the offense could
work out their problems. Out
standing defensive players
were Dillion Parker, Marquez
Hollis, Cody "T-Bone" Evans
and Houston Rhodes. On thp
offense, Shaquille Mitchem
and Mikel Carter carried the
ball for some good yardage
gains.
Even though the boys lost,
they played hard, right up 'to
the end of the game and not
giving up. The coaches tolA
them after the game, to come
back and play hard, stay with
your blocking assignments and
get better.
Next week the games will be
in Chiefland and the team will
meet there at 9:00am. Come
out and support the youth
teams of Dixie County. GO

"Songs & Stories Of My Life"


Local Teacher Publishes Book


Dyals & Pridgeon To

Exchange Vows


Micalea Ellen Dyals & Cody Eugene Pridgeon


Gene Dumas
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Once again Old Town resident Gene Dumas brings us
something special to read from his adventures. This time it is in
the form of an autobiography entitled, "Songs & Stories of My
Life."
Gene has put together a collection of songs, poems and stories
written about his life's experiences. From his early childhood to
his adventures in Antarctica in 2005, Gene takes us through some
of his most memorable and private moments.
What kind of a legacy does a father leave to his family? Gene
asks. More than land, money or other physical wealth, he feels
that a journal of his life which tells the story of his family,, is
priceless, and encourages other to do the same.
Gene grew up in Burlington, Vermont. He was one of seven
children and the only boy, so you can image what it was like to be
surrounded by women!
Gene and his siblings were raised by his stepfather Philip and
mother, Marion. Our country was just coming out of the great
depression and he tells of how thankful his family was for being
able to have food on the table. Though times were rough, his faith
in God and love of family carried him through; and continues to do
so today. Gene has traveled the globe, teaching the Word of God.
Gene's book tells stories of his adventures around the world.
This past year, the Advocate featured Gene's adventures to
Antarctica. He writes about his years as a history teacher as well
and dedicates a good portion to his wife Linda and their children,
Gene Jr. and Jessica. His book includes poems and songs written
by his mother, grandmother and his granddaughter, Lacey Ash;
treasures, within a treasure chest of memories.
Gene stated it took him two years to complete the 300 page
book; adding he could have written 800, but was limited by the
publisher. Will there be a sequel? We hope so. We know that
Gene continues to travel around the world; in fact, he and wife
Linda are planning at trip to China, Thailand, Hong Kong and
Malaysia in May or June of 2007.
Gene will be donating a copy of his book to the Dixie County
Public Library along with friend and fellow author Art Wycoff
later this month.
If you would like to get a copy of your own, you can do so by
ordering online at www.amazon.com or www.booksurge.com.
. Congratulations, Gene!

Art Wycoff
Ruth Rains Middle School science teacher, Art Wycoff, has
joined the list of Dixie County authors. He recently published his
book titled, "Grandpa...tell me a story", in which he shares his
own personal encounters with nature. This series of short stories
combines interactions between humans and wildlife in a whimsical
and sometimes sentimental way.
Art has had the privilege of traveling extensively throughout
the United States, Canada, and several other countries. This time
spent traveling has allowed him to experience nature in many
unique and interesting circumstances. Stories from Piranha on the
Amazon to the majestic Elk of the Rocky Mountains of Montana
will keep you guessing as to what else just might happen in the
next chapter.
Art tells us the reason and motivation for writing this book was
to record a few of the many encounters with nature that God has
enabled him to experience. In writing this book, Art hopes to
encourage his readers, both young and old alike to record their own
memories and experiences for their family, friends and future
generations to enjoy.
This entertaining collection of short stories can be purchased
for $8.00 at A & K Nursery, Highway 19, Cross City or by mailing
your request with a payment of $12.00 (to cover shipping and
handling) to PO Box 2607, Cross City, FL 32628.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Suwannee Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts
Above Drinking Water Standards
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know
what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results from samples taken on June 20, 2006 show that our
system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts DBP5), which includes Total Trihalomethanes
(TTI-IMs) and total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s). The standard for TTHM is 80 micrograms per liter and the average level of TTHM over the last year
was 360.4 micrograms per liter. The standard for HAA5s is 60 micrograms per liter and the average level over the last year was 146 micrograms per
liter.
What should do?
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver,
kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing Haloacetic Acids in excess of the MCL over many year may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBP levels: On September 20, 2006 we will be opening the sealed bids for the new water treatment plant
WTP). The treatment process at the new WTP will be different than the current WTP and will dramatically reduce the level of DBP in our drinking
water. With the new WTP our water will be within the acceptable limits specified for DBP. At this time we are using as small a concentration of
treatment products as possible and flushing the lines bimonthly to help reduce the level of DBP.
We anticipate resolving the problem within the time frame: Fourth quarter of 2007 to the first quarter of 2008.
For more information, please contact Tony Johns, at this phone number: (352) 542-7570 or this address: P. 0. Box 143, Suwannee, FL 32692-
0143.
Please share this information with all the other people'who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for
example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies
by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by The Suwannee Water & Sewer District
State Public Water System ID# 2151140

Reserve Specialist Lillie Deploys In
Support Operation Iraqi Freedom
Army Reserve Spec. Pamela Lillie has deployed overseas to
a forward-operating location in support of Operation Iraqi
Freedom.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to
military operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces
and coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq.
Mission objectives focus on force protection, peacekeeping,
stabilization, security and counter-insurgency operations as the
Iraqi transitional governing bodies assume full sovereign powers
to govern the peoples of Iraq.
Members from all branches of the U.S. military and
multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq's
economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and
preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full

Gallagher: 2006 Unclaimed Property Auctions

Earn More Than $1 Million For Florida Schools
Program has Pumped more than $1.6 billion into public schools


Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief financial
officer, announced today that an unclaimed
property auction held this weekend in Tampa
drew more than 300 people and earned nearly
$500,000 that will go into the state's public
school trust fund. Combined with the proceeds
of an auction held in Jacksonville in July, more
than $1 million will be added to the school
coffers, which is a record amount from auction
proceeds.
"This program is a win-win for everyone,"
said Gallagher, who oversees the Department
of Financial Services and the Bureau of
Unclaimed Property. "We set another new
record last fiscal year by returning more than
$100 million worth of cash and property to the
rightful owners, but in the meantime, Florida's
school children benefit by use of the funds for
education."
A 2-carat ladies wedding ring set took the
top bid of $13,000 among the 32,000 items
that were auctioned Saturday at the Sheraton
Tampa Riverwalk Hotel.


Other items auctioned included rare coins,
currency, signed baseball cards, watches and
silver place settings.

The auction items were remitted to the state
from abandoned safe deposit boxes. In addition
to money from the auction of safe deposit box
contents, unclaimed property also includes
bank accounts, unclaimed wages, checks,
deposits, credit balances, insurance benefits
and securities. The department currently holds
unclaimed property accounts valued at more
than $1.3 billion.

Claiming unclaimed property from the state
is free, and owners or heirs can claim it at any
time. The department also has a website,
www.FLtreasurehunt.org, and a toll-free
hotline, 1-88-VALUABLE, where citizens can
regularly check to see if the state is holding
unclaimed property for them.


At Cotton States, we know you have many choices when it
comes to insurance. That's why we offer a full line of home,
auto and life products to meet your needs.

We also offer something even better service from a Cotton
States agent who lives and works in your community. So,

Coates Moves To

Louisiana Refuges
The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge bids farewell
to. Forestry Technician Jason Coates as he heads out for his new
life in Louisiana. He begins work as a Fire Engineering
Equipment Operator at the Southeast Louisiana National Wildlife'
Refuge Complex. His being employed federally offers him the
opportunity to move anywhere he qualifies to work for the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service or any other federal agency.
Jason started at the Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys refuges
over three years ago as a temporary; after four months on the job,
he became a career seasonal. His first major project was building
needed spillways throughout the 53,000-acre refuge. When he
began assisting the heavy equipment operators; they described him
as a "natural" when it came to spreading, grading and working
with a variety of heavy equipment.
Coates served time on wildfires in the western mountains and
later, hurricane-relief duty after the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes. He
was requested for road construction details by Merritt Island and
other National Wildlife Refuges in the south. In Louisiana they
had already heard how well Coates works with front-end loaders,
tractor plows, excavators, bulldozers, and marsh master. With this
experience under his belt, his specialty for the nine refuges in the
Complex will be operating heavy equipment developed for
firefighting.
"Influencing young peoples' lives for the better and acting as a
mentor was very meaningful," said Coates. "I wanted them to
know that I would be there for them."
Coates served as the supervisor for the Youth Conservation
Corps (YCC) during his time at Lower Suwannee and always
looked forward to working with the upcoming generation.
Knowing teens need guidance and patience while learning the
diversity of their summer job, he tried to keep the job enjoyable.
After long hot projects, he would treat the YCC to a tour behind
the gates or field trips to other refuges.
Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) students joined the refuge
staff for a send-off dinner. "I'm attending Forestry classes, but
couldn't miss wishing Jason the best as this adventure of his life
begins," said Josh Reiter, former YCC.

Uike Smallville and Girlfriends can now see them all in one place.
Locally the new CW can be seen over the air on WCJB-TV's

Levy County
Quilt Museum
The Log Cabin Quilters
met Thursday, September 14th
at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. What a busy day we
had. Quilters from Anthony
Quilt Club came over to visit
and it made for a day of
fellowship and ever changing
ideas, quilters always have
much to talk about and it was
great to have them over.
Next Thursday night will
be Law Appreciation Night
and we hope to have many out
to support the man and women
who keep us safe.
At last, our history of the
museum is at the Print Shop,
and we look forward to seeing
it published. It has taken many
hours to write, to get names
spelled, pictures to go with the
stories, trying to remember not
to leave anyone or anything
out, we do have a record of
everything that was made, all
the quilts and crafts that have
been done since October 7,
1983. One day we will count
the quilts that have been done.
Lunch was so good we
were all hungry. Chicken, egg
plant, corn, squash casserole,
fried eggplant, kraut & hot
dogs, beans, salads, Marie's
Chocolate Pie, Betty's coconut
pie, Doris's pound cake and so
much more.

Vietnam Wars and takes pride
in being a good judge 'of

would often get phone.
solicitations for trips and:
such...and they were
legitimate," Weaver stated.
On August 11, 2006,,'
Weaver got a call from, a-
company called The American-
Travel Council. They asked if
he would be interested in
discounted tickets to tourist
attractions in Florida and ithe
Bahamas. Weaver stated that.
he made arrangements to have.
6 round trip tickets and 6 hotel-

CA instead. Weaver was-
hoping to attend his Naval-

Sunday Is

October 1st


Life Chains are a peaceful
and prayerful public witness of
pro-lifers standing for one hour
praying for an end to abortion.
It is a visual statement of
solidarity by the Christian
community that abortion kills
our future children and that the
church supports the sanctity of
human life from the moment of
conception. Please bring your
hats, lawn chairs, strollers and
join us from 2 to 3pm on major
roads as follows. Bronson (SR
24 at Sand Hill Baptist), Cedar
Key (by the bridge), Chiefland
(on 19 & ALT 27) &

Full Gospel Church),
Jonesville (SR 26 & 241),
Newberry (at the traffic light),
Trenton (at the traffic light).
One hour earlier in Bronson at
Court Street and Alt 27. Signs
are provided and will proclaim
"Abortion Kills Children",
"Adoption the Loving Option",
"Le Aborto Mata Ninos", "Life
- the First Inalienable Right",
"Jesus Forgives & Heals",
"Abortion Hurts Women", or
"Pray to End Abortion".
"Cemetery of the
Innocents" are pink, blue or all
white crosses representing the
legal homicide of abortion
with over 4,000 aborted babies
each day. Since Roe vs. Wade
in 1973 over 47 million babies
have been killed. Crosses can
be found at many churches that
pray for the healing of these
families due to the lost child.

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.

off for the past 30 years and
were ready to retire, when
they saw an advertisement in
a real estate book for the
closing Linda's. "We had Bob & Lori Wentling, owners of Grumpy's Italian Restaurant
talked about moving to the invites you to come and experience their spin on Italian-American
country," stated Lori. dishes.
"While we had planned on
retiring, we couldn't resist the quaint Italian Restaurant," she added.
Fortunately for Dixie residents, Grumpy's provides an alternative to fast food and country
cooking. When asked what their signature dish was, Lori stated that it had to be the cavettini and of
course their steaks, cut from Black Angus beef and marinated with ingredients that make them melt
in your mouth. Grumpy's salad bar is a big hit as well.
From pizza made any way you want it, to chicken, seafood, salads and pasta, Grumpy's menu

Community
Youth Service
The Fellowship of Christian
Athletes will be sponsoring a
community youth service
Wednesday, September 20th at
7:00 pm. The service will be
held at the DCHS auditorium.
Youth groups will be
ministering through music,
drama, and dance. Stereochild

some special music. The
service will end with a
message from Robbie Edge
(youth pastor of the Cross City

students to be a living
testimony for the Lord.
If you have not been
contacted and want to be a part
of this service, please call Judy
Sumrall at 498-6430 or 498-
307.8. Many churches will be
joining us this Wednesday and
many youth groups will be
attending. Please come and
support the youth of our
community.

Do Good
When you're abusive to people
That puts a dent in their heart
When the dents become many
It tears them apart
So it be possible with you
Do good to all men
It can build them up anew
And make them whole again

Dixie Sighting


This week's Dixie Sighting was brought in by John and
Virginia Henry of Old Town. Most of us know John and Virginia
for all their great work with the C.O.P.S.; putting in countless
numbers of hours as volunteers helping the Sheriff's Department.
We can now add fruit tree grower extraordinaire to their
talents. Pictured above is a five year old pear tree that was planted
as a twig. Last year it gave 3-4 pears, this year it produced over 21
pears! The limbs were so heavy with fruit they thought they would
break, but instead it stood tall till harvest time.
John said maybe the fact that the deer keep it trimmed down,
chest high, might have added to the limbs toughness.
Virginia stated that the pears made for a great cobbler. Maybe
next year she will bring a sample for us to taste here at the
Advocate.. .hint, hint.
Thanks guys! -
