Murder Suspect

Turns Himself Into


Law Enforcement

Officials
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Darrell Lee Washington,
19, of Jacksonville, Florida,
turned himself into law
enforcement officials in Duval
County last Thursday,
September 21, 2006.
Washington, who is the main
suspect in the shooting death
of Joseph Thomas, III of Old
Town, will be facing murder
charges here in Dixie County.
According to Cross City's
Police Chief Wesley Jones, Darrell Lee Washington
Washington and Thomas were
said to have been arguing over the purchase of a dog when
Washington allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot Thomas.
Thomas was able to drive for a short distance before
collapsing. He would later die at the hospital due to the gunshot
wound to his chest. Thomas was also shot in the leg.
A toddler, who was in the back seat, and passenger in the front
seat, were both unharmed.
Washington was arrested for an outstanding warrant on
unrelated charges and remained in the Duval County Jail until
Monday when he was transported to Dixie County.

Pictured above are the two statutes of the Mother Mary stolen from the
Holy Cross Catholic Mission; left is the Guadalupe' statute and right is
Miraculous Mary statute.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
On September 19, 2006, the Dixie County Sheriffs
Department was called to the Holy Cross Catholic Mission where
there had been a robbery of two of their statues of the Mother
Mary. Investigators believe that more than one person is involved
in the theft, as one of the statues weighs over 4,000 pounds.
Members of the church noticed the statues were missing late
that Monday. Both statues were seen on Sunday; therefore they
had to be taken Sunday night or Monday morning.
The one statue which is a replica of the Virgin Mary that
appeared in Mexico is called "Guadalupe" is five feet tall, weighs
4,000 lbs and valued at $1,500. It stood outside in the front yard of
the mission. The second statue, called the Miraculous Mary is two
feet tall and valued at $400.
Investigators believe that the suspects used a wheel barrow or
some type of small wheeled cart to haul the statues to the paved
area of the church where they were placed in a vehicle.
If you have any information regarding these thefts, please
contact the Sheriffs Department at 352-498-1220.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor
Well, first I would like to thank everyone that voted for me in
this past primary election. It was a pleasure to get to meet everyone
and I am grateful to all that supported my campaign.
Now to the editor...Everyone wants and expects changes with
our current Board of County Commissioners. That was a major
request. A lot of people spoke of "The Good Ole Boy" syndrome.
This statement speaks for its self. That is just what this voter feels
about our current County Commissioners that they are all GOOD
PEOPLE, just like the rest of us, human beings trying to do the
best they can for our growing community. I listened and agreed
with most of the issues that this election faces. However, when
voting day arrived there wasn't an overwhelming response at the
poles.
Out of the some odd 10,000 registered voters in Dixie County
only approximately 3,000 took the time to vote. Now I am aware
of the confusion with the 911 address changing a lot of precincts.
And what the voters need to understand is that it is their
responsibility to update their voter registration card and make sure
that everything is correct and that they know where their correct
voting precinct is locate. I urge everyone to call the office of the
Supervisor of Elections and find out what they need to know. Ask
questions and the hard working employees at that office will be
eager to answer your questions.
Towards the end of our primary election speeches I began to
get an uneasy feeling about what certain candidates were saying
about the way our current government works here in Dixie County.
I believe that no matter what level of government in whatever
geographic location in this our United States of America has a
certain amount of success and a certain amount of failure. So
pointing fingers to me was childish and uncalled for. And frankly I
was very disappointed. I might be simple-minded and some feel
I'm ignorant in the field of politics, but I have an opinion just like
everyone else and I choose to believe in America and out system
and believe people should become more active in our community.
People need to come to the open County Commission meetings,
whether you have an issue to address or not and educate yourself
on what is happening with Dixie County.
You would be surprised to learn that change is happening
RIGHT NOW!! Also you would be SURPRISED to find out that it
is OUR CURRENT BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
THAT ARE MAKING IT HAPPEN. I personally like to base my
conversation on facts not rumors, it makes God happier, plus it
makes me smarter.
Sincerely,
Karen Ann Bolin


.Q I am interested in
bidding on a piece of
foreclosed property that is
being auctioned by the Clerk's
office. What do I need to do?
Also, how can I get a list of
properties being auctioned?
A You should come to the
Clerk's office on the day of the
sale and register with the
Clerk. Chapter 45, Florida
Statutes, requires that a bidder
other than the judgment holder
must a present a good fair
deposit of 5% of your projected
bid in cash or cashier's check
in order to confirm a bid. You
may contact the Civil Division
of the Clerk's office for

Terrorists don't get kid glove treatment in Iraq
Interestingly, the story showed up on the Internet on 9/11 (this
year), but apparently it was filed shortly after the elected
government of Iraq assumed control of Abu Ghraib prison in
Baghdad. In any event, it didn't seem to get much distribution.
The published account began, "The brutal excesses of Saddam
Hussein's regime were relived yesterday as Iraq's new government
announced that it had hanged 27 prisoners convicted of terror and
criminal charges."
Obviously, the reporter assumed that all those who were
executed must have been innocent. That's the standard assumption
of liberals whenever a criminal is executed, even a terrorist.
In our "enlightened" society, we devote weeks, months, some-
times years, to a criminal trial. A murderer is unlikely to receive
the death sentence, but in the event he does, he is availed of an
appeals process that can take a decade or more. If and when he is
finally executed, protesters will gather outside the prison where the
execution is to take place, holding signs protesting the brutality of
capital punishment. Newspaper editors will echo their sentiments.
European nations will comment on how barbaric we are.
And how do we execute criminals? Usually by lethal injection.
However, one killer recently got his execution delayed because he
said the needle would hurt. Golly, we wouldn't want that to
happen, now, would we?
All right, maybe the gallows isn't as painless as the needle, but
it sure beats getting processed through Saddam's plastic shredder,
and that's what happened to political prisoners while he was in
charge of Abu Ghraib.
Our courts have recently ruled that terrorists must be treated
like Martha Stewart. They are to be extended Geneva Convention
protections despite the fact that the Geneva convention explicitly
excludes non-uniformed combatants and/or those not aligned with
any recognized national force. And of course, we must not cause
them any undue discomfort during questioning. Better a few of our
GI's get blown up by IED's than a terrorist suspect be deprived of 8
hours sleep on a comfortable mattress.
I've had some doubts about Iraq's new government, but the
report of 27 executions, mostly terrorists, was encouraging. I am
more concerned about our military losses than those sustained by
the indigenous population, however most of the people getting
killed are Iraqis, some innocent civilians, and many civilian deaths
are caused by rival Muslim religious groups, who are also the ones
killing Americans.
So, Iraq's elected government is not dealing lightly with these
inilitants, some of whom are home-grown, others we must assume
are imported from neighboring countries like Iran and, Syria. Go
around blowing people up and you get strung up. Not a bad idea,
I'd say.
: The comparison of these executions to Saddam Hussein's mass
killings is as absurd as Ted Kennedy saying the American takeover
of Abu Ghraib was Saddam's torture chambers "under new man-
agement." The 27 executed criminals were tried in accordance with
the laws of Iraq's new government, which are no doubt less
accommodatingg of the accused than ours, but it's an indication that
Iraq's elected government is doing something for itself; and that's
what we're sending our military over there to accomplish.
It seems reasonable that, having done a most expeditious job of
ridding their country of 27 undesirables, perhaps the responsible
courts should be put in charge of wrapping up Saddam's trial. A
few more feet of rope, and they could make it a nice, even 28.

Letter To The

Editor
In today's world our
children can't have enough
education to succeed in life
and procure the American
Dream. The questions I would
like to ask our state educators
why is the Dixie County
School system one of the
poorest in preparing its
students for life after
completing 12 years in this
school system? It would seem
that the only thing that we
excel in is a high drop out rate,
fighting, racial hate and total
disrespect for students and
their parents. Not to mention
the fact that the level of
education is less than our
forefathers received 100 years
before us. Do you think that
our teachers really care??? Are
the teachers as a whole really
the quality we need?? It would
seem to this writer that the
whole school system needs to
be replaced this to includes
the school superintendent and
the school administrators.
The FCAT testing has to
be the phoniest evaluation yet
to date. In the past the teachers
take several weeks prior to the
test to so call prep the students
for the test. But in most cases,
they are teaching the test itself.
So they will show only on
paper that "my students are on
level of learning that is equal
to what is the state average.
This method seems to be for
teachers to keep their jobs, or
seek a higher rate of pay.
Giving credit where credit
is due, granted there are
students who do not want to
learn. What does it take to alter
these attitudes? 1 would think
in most cases alternate
programs and counseling
would surely be a step in the
right direction. Under the
present system a student who
tends to be a problem is sent
home or to the alternative
school. Why is it that
nationwide are more children
being home schooled?? It's
because families have lot faith
with our school system.
Our present schools have
fights in the halls and on the
school grounds daily. What is
wrong with the teachers
controlling student movement
between periods?
It's human nature for a
person to defend him or
herself. Why not have a
student Master of Arms Force
and let them police themselves.
A student court, under
supervision of a staff member
would be a step into adult life
hood. I surely don't have the
answers to problems at our
schools. But one thing for sure,
THE PRESENT SYSTEM
DOESN'T WORK!! This


would or could be instituted on
the buses also.
"ATTITUDE IS
EVERYTHING" The school
problems can be fixed. We as
parents have a responsibility in
the repairs as well as the
school officials.
I know that I'm not the
only parent or family in Dixie
County that has these
concerns. I would ask you as a
parent with children to voice
your opinion, and let the state


officials know how we feel,
and if we have to, go to the
Federal government. WE
NEED ACTION NOW.
Overhaul Dixie County
Schools for the betterment of
our children and our future.
Please, if you care, voice
your opinion "LET YOUR
VOICE BE HEARD!!"

Sunday Is

October 1st

Life Chains are a peaceful
and prayerful public witness of
pro-lifers standing for one hour

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

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2006


Martinez: Additional $100 Million Hurricane


Assistance Coming To Florit
Senator Mel Martinez recently welcomed
the announcement by the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (1IUD) that
Florida will receive $100,066,518 in
supplemental Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The funds are
available for disaster recovery related to
hurricanes Wilma, Rita, and Katrina.
"Florida's recovery is not yet complete.
This $100 million provides another critical
layer of capital that will help families and
entire communities with the most basic of
needs," said Martinez. "As the former
housing secretary, I understand the
importance that the CDBG program plays in
local communities. I applaud HUD and
Secretary Jackson for directing these much-
needed funds to Florida."


Housing and Urban Development In addition,
Secretary Alphonso Jackson and Donald E. the unmet ne
Powell, Federal Coordinator for Gulf Coast own homes
Rebuilding, today announced $973 million in states.
"BURGLARIES"
Continued from page 1
from the burglary of a Suwannee residence. While bail has been
set for Dixie County charges, the two are being held for
Hillsborough County where they have been charged with grand
theft auto.
While on an investigation concerning a stolen vehicle, Dixie
Deputies received a call from a resident in Suwannee who reported
two suspicious vehicles backed up to a home.
Deputies arrived at the home and found one of two vehicles
that had been stolen from Hillsborough County. The driver, John
Dempsey, was placed under arrest after they found that he was
using a false tag and that his license had been suspended
indefinitely. Burglary tools were found in the vehicle Dempsey
was driving when deputies searched the 1986 Corvette, adding to
his charges.
A call was made to deputies, reporting that a burglar had been
chased from a resident's kitchen. The victim was able to give law
enforcement a description of the truck, which they found traveling
north on CR 349.
When deputies attempted to stop the driver of the pickup, later
identified as Patrick Dempsey, he led officers on a high speed
'chase. After about a 12-mile chase, the engine blew in the pickup
and Patrick Dempsey, fled on foot.
The Cross City Correctional Institutes' K-9 Unit was able to
track the older Dempsey brother in a wooded area, approximately
200 yards from the truck.
Patrick Dempsey's charges from Dixie County were Possession
of Burglary Tools, Driving While License Suspended, Burglary of
an Occupied Dwelling and Aggravated Fleeing & Eluding. John
Dempsey's Dixie charges are Possession of Burglary Tools,
Driving While License Suspended, and Attaching Tag Not
* Assigned.
Bond was set at $11,000 for Patrick, while bond for John was
. set for $5,000. Both remain in the Dixie County Jail as of press
time as they are being held for Hillsborough County for Grand
Theft Auto. Patrick Dempsey has additional charges with
Hillsborough as well.
"FLOOD MAPS"
Continued from page 1
maps are going to be a great benefit as they show details that have
previously not been available.
Minnis noted.that the last maps were issued in 1983. Some of
the new details in the 2006 maps include wetland areas and data
which has been collected over the past 23 years. This new
information will benefit land owners, local officials, planners,
builders, and developers; helping them to make more informed
decisions on where to build. It was also noted that the coastal
elevations have not changed.
Dixie was one of the first maps to be completed by FEMA. By
2010 maps for all the counties in the SRWMD will be completed.
It was asked how homeowners will know if their status has
changed with the new maps. Hubbell stated that lending
institutions will be notified of the changes and they (lending
institution), will be responsible for researching the information for
their clients and notifying them. If your home is already paid for,
you are not required to purchase flood insurance, however it is
available upon request.
As an example of the cost of flood insurance, Hubbell stated
that if you had a home valued at $150,000 with $50,000 in
contents, if your home was built at the "base flood elevation" BFE,
'insurance will cost you $900 a year, a foot above BFE $553, 2
feet above BFE $376, and 3 feet above BFE $336 a year.
In Dixie, the changes in the flood-map is minimal; however
there are some residents who were previously not in the flood area,
S-who are now and vise-versa. The northern section of the county
-located near the Suwannee River will see the most change in their
status.
.. For more information on your flood risk, you can contact the
Property Appraiser's Office at 498-1212, the FEMA Map
Assistance Center at 1-877-336-2627 or visit the FEMA website at
fema.gov.

disaster funding to help Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi, and Texas to recover from last
year's hurricanes.
"Today, the Bush Administration makes
another investment in the long-term recovery
of Florida and the Gulf Coast," said Jackson.
"These states can now develop plans on how
they will restore needed affordable housing,
rebuild critical infrastructure and stimulate
the economies of areas that all of us are
determined to see recover."
The CDBG program is a flexible program
that provides communities with resources to
address a wide range of unique community
development needs. HUD allocated the
CDBG supplemental funding based on
Congress's intent that particular emphasis be
placed on the repair, rehabilitation and
reconstruction of affordable rental housing.

Save Every Day
(NAPS)-One of the best
ways to save money is to try
to lower the costs of your daily
necessities. More and more
people are spending smarter
and looking to get something
in return for their hard-earned
cash-even on life's essentials.
Here are some tips on sav-
ing money when you do your
weekly shopping:












, ".

Loyalty programs at stores
can save you lots of money
over time.
Send in rebate coupons.
Even relatively small amounts
can quickly add up and, in any
case, it's free money.
Keep an inventory of
your freezer, refrigerator, cup-
boards and pantry, and make
sure it's up to date. That will
help keep you from buying too
much of something perishable.
Coupons and store loy-
alty card programs can cut
your bottom line by at least
10 percent.
For example, more than 50
million Americans are part of
CVS/pharmacy's ExtraCare
program. Most joined to avoid
the hassle of clipping coupons
to get the sales prices on prod-
ucts in the store. ExtraCare
cardholders also receive
money-saving offers at the
bottom of their receipts based
on products they buy at
CVS/pharmacies. They can
also get 2 percent back for
every dollar spent and one dol-
lar back for every two pre-
scriptions purchased at the
CVS/pharmacy in most states.

The Word

Made Flesh
Mark, Number, & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say the third beast
coming up out of the earth
(people). He exercised all the
power of the first beast before
him. Please understand this is
written in symbols to show us
what is coming to pass spiritually.
In your thinking do not make these
beast natural beasts. Your natural
way (fleshly) will throw you
completely off the spiritual things.
Be much in prayer as you
study the Book of Revelation. Be
sure you are listening to the Holy
Spirit and not figuring things out
in the natural. Let me show you a
great mystery. The Book of
Revelation is the real Revelation
of Jesus Christ, when it is
understood. (Rev. 1:1) As you go
from the beast in Heaven to the
beast in the sea, then to the beast
coming up out of the earth
(people), and try to understand
these great mysteries in natural
human life, much confusion will
come. They will not connect
together when you compare them
in the natural.
They are hidden under the
seven seals, which seal the book
of life. I, the son of man, say let's
make it plain and clear. It is the
angel of the Lord Jesus Christ that
opened these mysteries to us.
Please read Rev. 22:16. This tells
us plainly that the Angel of the
Lord Jesus Christ is here now
showing us the true vision of the
works of Jesus Christ that are
hidden under these symbols
(mysteries) of the Book of
Revelation. Coming out from this
third beast is a power that the
second beast did not have.
This beast and his work are
very cunning and very subtle. He
is smart and shrewd. Jesus said,
"for there shall arise false Christ's,
and false prophets, and shall shew
great signs and wonders, in so
much that, if it were possible, they
shall deceive the very elect."
St. Matthew 24:24 1, the son
of man, say these false Christ's
and false prophets are working
under the power and authority of
this third beast. We will see this
clearly, as we understand the
Mark, Number, and Name of the
Beast. Continued next week.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"GOD"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say John
writes concerning the love of God not how you or I love Him, but
how He first loved us, commending and bestowing, showing forth
His love to us "while we were yet sinners".
God so loved the world that He gave His son to be the Saviour
for the entire world for ALL. Now some will immediately raise the
argument that it is only for those who believe. That is true, but you
must remember that you are saved when you believe and not
because you believed. So I would ask: Do we dare condemn some
because they do not believe as soon as we do? "God sent not His
son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world
through Him might be saved.
(John 3:17) I, the Day of the Lord, say think about it; you are not
saved because you did anything. It is not of works lest any man
should boast. It is by God's grace and mercy alone. Christ has
already offered Himself for the sins of the world. And your
believing only regulates that which was prepared while you were
still in unbelief. He is potentially Saviour all the time, but He is
"Saviour in fact" when you are ready to accept Him. I, the Day of
the Lord, say many have become confused, and think they are
saved "Because" of their believing but we must insist the grace of
God is the sole cause of our salvation, but it is experimental when
we believe.
As far as God is concerned, Christ was slain before the
foundation of the world, so that even before you had sinned all
your redemption had been planned. Were you there to dictate who
should be saved? God planned to redeem the entire world. I, the
Day of the Lord, say whether you accept Christ now or wait for a
thousand years, that doesn't change the sacrifice of Christ as being
sufficient for all. But the moment that you do believe it goes into
action on your behalf, while until that time it is potential. God has
determined to redeem you you might delay momentarily, but He
will correct, restrain, and so direct your circumstances in such a
way that eventually you will accept.
I, the Day of the Lord, say and even if you resist all of your
natural life, that doesn't end His dealings with you, for severer
fires and more discipline, will be administered till submission
comes. Continued next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
Our baptismal service and fellowship supper on the Suwannee
last week was fantastic. Watching the water roll by, enjoying the
timeless serenity of the river setting, and partaking of God's
blessings through good fellowship and food could easily combine
to become habitual behavior. Most important of all, though,
additions were made to God's kingdom! Back in church Sunday,
we were treated to an excellent display by our choir and musicians,
after which we were blessed with superb messages by Bro. Billy
from God's Holy Word, choosing Luke 8:43-48 and 1st Timothy
1:12-16 as his morning and evening texts. We were very pleased
to have visitors once again, and invite them and all others back
anytime.
As September winds down, we look forward to more exciting
things for the Lofd in the autumn and winter seasons, so keep
watching!
There are many people on our prayer list, so please keep
praying for them, as well as the folks on prayer lists of all our area
churches. As always, pray for our president and other leaders, and
the people in our armed forces...the power of prayer cannot be
overstated. Have a good week, and may God bless you. \

If you need Salvation
If you need Deliverance
The Word will come forth in Power & Demonstration


Remembering
When we were
children...we were happy
and gay...
And our Mother was
young and laughs as we
played...
And as we grew up... she
taught us truth...
And laid life's
foundation in the days of
our youth... "a of ....
When it w'vas time for us
to leave home...
Her teachings went with e ig
us wherever we roamed...s ll
We will always Frances "Paquita" Hart
remember and often 15 Sept. 1929 15 Sept. 1991
realize, that Mama
Was special... and wonderfully wise...
And as she grew older...our hearts filled with Love...
We knew that our Mother was a gift from above...
One day she left us to receive her reward...
She now dwells in God's Kingdom...And keeps house for the
Lord.
She lights up the stars that shine through the night...
And keeps all the moonbeams shiny and bright.
At the crack of dawn...she puts the darkness away...
She brings out the sun to brighten each day.
We dry our tears...because her memory won't die...
And we know she's above keeping house in the sky...
And there in God's Kingdom she'll watch from above...
Till she welcome's children with undying Love.
Loving you always & missing you much, Thomas (Leigh),
Gayle (Bruce), Claude (Dawn), & Grandkids, Anissa, Tara, Justin,
Cynthia, Patrick, & Great Grandson Tanner.

In Loving Memory
Our memories are all we have. w
The memories of our
beloved Scott.
There was more time to
spend, but your journey has 60 -
come to an end. What are we, a
now to do with a life, a life
without you. You gave us all
so much love, now you have
wings of a dove. So high in the
sky, your memories will never
die. 2
We will love and miss you
every day, but for now that's
all we can say. Till we see you
once again, our love and
memories will never end.

accordance with Sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.). The

below and must be filed (received) in the

filed by any person other than those entitled
to written notice under Section 120.60(3),
F.S., must be filed within 14 (fourteen) days
of publication of the public notice or within 14
(fourteen) days of receipt of the notice of
intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section
120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who
asked the permitting authority for notice of
agency action may file a petition within (14)
days of receipt of that notice, regardless of
the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail
a copy of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above, at the time of filing.
The failure of any person to file a petition
within the applicable time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative determination
(hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this
proceeding and participate as a party to it.
Any subsequent intervention will be only at
the approval of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code
(F.A.C.).

A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the permitting authority's action is
based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone
number of the petitioner; name address and
telephone number of the petitioner's
representative, if any, which shall be the
address for service purposes during the
course of the proceeding; and an explanation
of how petitioner's substantial rights will be
affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the
petitioner received notice of the agency
action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends require

facts upon which the permitting authority's
action is based shall state that no such facts
are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as
required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.

Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the
permitting authority's final action may be
different from the position taken by it in this
notice of intent. Persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the permitting authority on the
applications) have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements set forth
above.

days of the expiration of the Administrator's
45 (forty-five) day review period as
established at 42 U.S.C Section 7661d(b)(1),
to object to issuance of any permit renewal.
Any petition shall be based only on objections
to the permit renewal that were raised with
reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty)
day public comment period provided in this
notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to
the Administrator of the EPA that it was
impracticable to raise such objections within
the comment period or unless the grounds for
such objection arose after the comment
period. Filing of a petition with the

Administrator of the EPA does not stay the
effective date of any permit properly issued
pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213,

EPA must meet the requirements of 42
U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed

requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section
7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the

conditions of the Draft Air Construction Permit
and the DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit
Revision unless a response received in
accordance with the following procedures
results in a different decision or significant
change of terms or conditions.

Construction Permit issuance action for a
period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of
publication of this Notice. Written comments

How Can The Social Security Disability SpedalstAt Integrated Family Services Help You?

If you are denied a Social Security Disability or a SSI Claim, it is often because there was a lack of medical evidence
in support of your claim or the Administration did not consider all your impairments or the Social Security Administration failed to apply the correct legal
rules. A Social Security Disability professional can give you advice about what you need to do to prove your disability and help you gather medical
evidence. A Social Security Disability professional can request copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your final
disability claim. Professionals specializing in Disability claims can request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and cannot do
because of your impairment and can ensure that any necessary SSI & SSDI appeals are timely filed.
Every day you wait to file is one more day until you begin receiving your money.

This week's Dixie Sighting was snapped at the home of Steve Langford (my hubby). Steve was
on watering duty when he spotted these very unusual caterpillars. At first glance he thought they
were bird droppings (great camouflage!); upon closer look, as they began to move, he knew he had a
Dixie Sighting.
There were approximately 10 of the odd creatures in the process of devouring our Satsuma tree.
Once I took my photos, Steve began to remove them from the tree and a very long, red tongue shot
out and began waving around in a defensive manner.
Ok, guys, I need your help.. .can you tell me what they are?

Assistant Principal, Dolphus Peppers, aka 'Mr. 2-
Bits' gets the crowds fired up after the victory last
Friday that gives the Bears a 5-0 record for the
season.


Coiy Land, who had to walk the sidelines last Friday night because of
an -illness, and Rodney Scott, listen intently to Coach Wilkerson's post
game comments about how the Bears performed Friday night and what
they had to do to get prepared for this week's game against the Ft.


White Indians.
By John Kelley
The Dixie County Bears beat the
Williston Red Devils Friday night in an epic
Battle of the Defenses. The Bears held on to
Swin 23-19 in what some have called, one of
the sweetest victories at Boyette field in
recent history. Coach Brent Wilkerson said to
the team after the game "this is as good a win
-'as we have ever played on this field." He
:went on to say to the team "you played hard
a and wins like this don't come often".
The Bears started as the receivers and
fTound out that the Devil defensive line was
...every bit as tough as any team they played so
.,far. Both teams vied for field position during
'the next series, but at the five-minute mark
the Bear defenders led by Corey VanAernam
sacked the Devil quarterback behind the goal
lrie for a safety, which put two points on the
Tboard for Dixie. The Bears received the
fkikl:off and started a 10-play drive which
eqided with a Kameron Keen to Rodney Scott
:Combination and four yard TD run. "Kicker"
.Cassidy added to the score with his effort
5 ith a PAT and the Bears jumped ahead 9-0.
The defensive effort lead by A.J. Land
;^anid Bud Wessels held the Devils scoreless
T-tough the first quarter. Jerrell Tyson, Jacob
'Evans and Tyler Music also were
" instrumental in the Bear defensive effort but
- allowed the Devils to post six points in the
opening minutes of the second quarter. The
Bear offensive line feeling the effects of the
Devil blitz were forced into allowing a safety
which tied up the score at the six minute
Mark. The two teams battled it out until, with
1:40 showing on the clock, Jacob Evans
recovered a Red Devil fumbled ball and with
the Bears in possession, during their second
play, Scott fumbled on a hand off, allowing
the Devils to recover, score and add the extra
point. The Devils lead 16-9 with about 51
seconds remaining in the half. As the Bears
started their next drive the Devils intercepted
> Keen pass and regain possession of the ball.
W-essels, VanAernam, and Evans pummeled
-1he- Devil line and with 15 seconds left the
:Devils attempted and made a 47-yard field
,-goal raising the stakes for Dixie to 19-9 at the
:-lalf.


The second half saw the Bears and Devils
in defensive combat with neither team
holding an advantage over the other. As the
third quarter was drawing to a close, the
Bears with Keen at QB, pitched a pass to
Markell Harris who scored. Cassidy added the
extra point and the Bears were back in the
game closing the gap to 16-19. In the next
series Michael Lewis recovered a Williston
fumble and the third quarter closed with
Bears in possession of the ball.
Fourth quarter action again turned into a
stalemate as both teams struggled to turn the
tide. With about five minutes left to play the
Bears, on a six-play drive, starting at the 43-
yard line, scored with another Keen to Scott
signature play. "Kicker" booted the extra
point through the uprights and the Bears took
ownership of the game with the score 23-19.
The Bears were now playing in full defensive
mode forcing Williston to punt the ball away
which turned into a fumble, with AJ Land "in
the house" to recover it. The Devils, equally
fired up; forced Dixie to punt after only three
plays and that's when the party started... the
Bear defensive line, on the first play, used
Bud Wessels to break up a potential
touchdown pass. The next play saw a pass
completed and the Devils looked like they
might score. Wessels read the next play and
intercepted a pass that was intended to close
the door on a Dixie victory with 1:18 left to
play. The Bears held the ball till the clock ran
out and walked away with a tough victory
over the Red Devils.
The Bears most certainly played a great
game, the defensive team was outstanding
and Bud Wessels certain proved that he is a
playmaker. This was a game of field position
and defensive proficiency, but both offense
and defense played hard, everyone stepped up
to the plate in the absence of senior Cory
Land who was hospitalized last week with
staff infection.
The next battle will be a district match-
up against Fort White who will be looking to
upset the Bear's 5 and 0 record. They have
their work cut out for them! GO BIG RED!


JV Loses to Fort White
The JV team lost a hard game to Fort White
last Thursday. The Dixie offensive line
moved the ball well according to Coach Hope
but wasn't able to overcome a tough Ft White
defense. Coach Hope also reported that the
second string team did well and saw plenty of

excellent defensive plays, and with Shaquille

loss of yards to the Warriors as well. The

Scientists "Cautiously Optimistic" About Ivory-Bill 6A 4A


Evidence In Florida
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) scientists said Tuesday
they are cautiously optimistic about an Auburn
University professor's recently discovered
evidence of ivory-billed woodpeckers in the
Florida Panhandle.
"There is not enough evidence to confirm
the birds' presence yet," FWC Executive
Director Ken Haddad said, "but the indications
are promising, and we will work closely with
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Auburn
University and the Northwest Florida Water
Management District to see if we can confirm
the reports."
Auburn University ornithologist Dr. Geoff
Hill, who recently completed a year-long
search for the endangered woodpecker,
unveiled his findings Monday, indicating there
are signs ivory-bills might exist on land owned
by the water management district. He
produced audio recordings that appear similar
to historical recordings of ivory-billed
woodpeckers. However, he has not collected
clear photographic or video evidence, which is
the standard for scientific confirmation.
"The water management district owns,
manages and protects over 200,000 acres in


Dixie Humane

Society

Update

The Dixie County Humane
Society, headed by Pamela
Swanson of Old Town
announced at the Board of
County Commission Meeting
last Thursday, September 21st,
that they had received their
charter and were already
conducting the business of
helping unwanted animals,
including farm animals.
Swanson noted that in
addition to being a place where
strays can be brought, they will
be providing spade and
neutering services and have
already form a foster care
system.
The audience was filled
with supporters of the newly
formed society who hoped to
get some additional support
from the County Commission.
Swanson asked the Board for a
donation of land, stating they
needed between 5-10 acres.
The land would house a
building, shelters and pasture
area for the larger animals.
She also asked the
Commissioners to look into
grants that may be available,
for such projects as the
Humane Society.
The Commissioners agreed
to look into both requests.
However, they also noted that
recently they received
information on a new mandate
that has been handed down by
the state that is going to
require local counties to
provide land for low income
housing.
If you would like to know
more about how you can help,
you can contact Pamela at 542-
1081 or Kelly Post at 498-
4041.


Northwest Florida, the majority of which are
along its major river systems," said Douglas E.
Barr, executive director of the Northwest
Florida Water Management District. "If the
existence of these endangered/extinct birds is
verified, then the acquisition, protection and
management of these lands since the mid-
1980s reflect the District's intent and mission
to preserve its water resources and habitats."
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto said he
and the six other Commissioners are bracing
for potentially good news in coming months.
"This will be fantastic if we can confirm
the woodpeckers are there," Barreto said.
"Many experts believe the ivory-bill is extinct,
but experts have searches under way in
Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South
Carolina and Texas. Florida is the only state
besides Arkansas to come close to
confirmation in roughly 40 years."

billed woodpecker sightings in Florida since
1859 is available at

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 we received on 7/12/06 show that our
system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes
both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standard for TTHMs and HAA5 are 80 and 60
micrograms per liter (ug/L), respectively. The average level of TTHMs and HAA5s over the last year was 493 ug and 418ug
respectively. ',

What should I 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 MCL over many years 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 happened? What is being done?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water and creates the disinfection
Byproduct. The Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & The Department of Environmental
Protection to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12 months.

For more information, please contact Ferrell 'Cricket' Spurlin at (352) 498-5488 or Mike Cassidy at (352) 498-3079. Town of
Cross City, P.O. Box 417, Cross City, FL 32628.

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 Cross City WTP.

Dixie Music Center's

15 thAnniversary

Dixie Music Center will be celebrating their 15"' year in
business with an anniversary extravaganza on Saturday, October
14'h with live performances by the area's top groups and bands.
Dixie Music Center is located V2 mile south of the Old Town traffic
light on US 19 and is owned and operated by Old Town residents
Bob & Dotti Leichner. The concert will be held on the beautifully
wooded acreage adjacent to the store. The event is free and open to
the public. The store will open at 9:00 am with live music starting
at 9:30.
As usual, a wide variety of musical styles will be represented.
Many of the featured acts performed at the 10th Anniversary, which
was the first year that the store held such a large event. Total
Production Services of St. Petersburg will handle sound production
again.
Opening this year's show will be the Skeeter Creek Band, an
acoustic group that plays a nice down-home Bluegrass style,
complete with wash tub bass. They were seen earlier this year at
the Fanning Springs State Park Concert Series and have been
rumored to host one of the livelier camps at the Withlacoochee
Bluegrass Festivals.


Bob Leichner keeping the beat with the Gordon Brothers.
Local Southern Gospel favorites Southland make their return to
the Dixie Music Center stage this year. This award-winning quartet
will leave no doubt as to why they are considered one of north
Florida's finest vocal groups. When they last appeared at this event
the group was newly formed and was a trio. For those who last saw
the group on this stage, you are in for a treat. They will be
performing selections from their most recent critically acclaimed
release.
Following Southland will be a reunion of the Rock Bluff Band.
This band was a favorite on the singles club dance circuit for years
and features the nice mix of old and newer Country tunes with
great three and four part vocal harmonies, two of which are female.
Next up will be the return of the band Crosstyz. Their many
local fans have anxiously awaited this group's return. For those


U II---- I I


Dotti Leichner struts her stuff.
new to the area, this talented band has opened shows for dozens of
the biggest names in Country music. One of their last local
performances was at Red Belly Day 2005. The tragic passing of
founding member Sam Matthews a few years back nearly spelled
the end of the group, but after time off, surviving members missed
performing too much to retire.
The Rick Gordon Band returns to the DMC stage this year as
well. Rick, who grew up in Dixie County, is considered by many
to be one of the finest vocalists in these parts. They will perform
original, classic and newer Country tunes.
Following the Rick Gordon Band will be local Blues favorites
the Rick Randlett Band. This high-power trio will perform songs
from their first two CD's, as well as material from their upcoming
release along with some classic R&B tunes. Rick has been on staff
as a guitar instructor at Dixie Music Center since the latter 90's
and is an alumnus of the Rick Gordon Band as well.
Closing out the show will be the world debut of Polka Dotti
and the Polka Dots, arguably Dixie County's first Polka band. This
unique five-piece group, under the direction of Dbtti South with
vocal assistance from Tony Zenner, is sure to have everyone
dancing (or at least tapping their toes). Miss Pauline the Polka
Queen is featured on piano and organ, while Ted Patrick handles
the accordion and clarinet parts. For those unfamiliar with Polka
music, as the band says, "You like Polka music; you just don't
know it yet!"
As in years past, following the show will be the prize drawings
- always a big hit. While this list was still growing at press time,
prizes to date include an USA Fender Stratocaster ($999 value), 4-
Crate guitar amps ($1200 value), an Ibanez guitar (TBA), and
Dean Acoustic-electric guitar and amp combo ($325 value). Total
expected value of prize drawings and giveaways could approach
nearly $4,000.00! There is no cost to enter, but there are
restrictions.
Barbeque will be available from PJ Hope, who was a huge hit
at last year's event.
Bring your folding chairs for a great day of entertainment and
fun under the trees. For further information call the store at (352)
542-3001.

service/hospitality as well provided many helpful resources and
links.
A free barbeque lunch was provided by PWW & the coalition
with the catering of the delicious meats from "Backyard Gormays"
with Don "Chad" Chadwick preparing the marvelous delicacy.
Thanks to everyone that helped by donating food for the lunch
such as the Gilchrist Women's Club for their contribution of the
mouth watering desserts and loaning of their coffee urns to each of
the chambers that provided the side dishes and drinks.

ARTHUR BELLOT. COUNTY
COORDINATOR
Mr. Bellot presented an agreement
with North Central Florida Regional
Planning Council regarding Local
Government Comprehensive Plan
Capital Improvements Element.
The motion to sign was made by
Commissioner Lamb and was
seconded by Commissioner Hays.
Mr. Bellot stated that the bid
opening on the airport taxiway
extensions for the future t-hangers with
Hoyle Tanner Associates had been
closed after receiving only one bid.
The bid received was from Anderson
Columbia and exceeded the Grant
funding amount. One item that was
bid on was to take out the old asphalt
from the dead taxi lanes. Mr. Bellot
recommended for county forces to
remove the old asphalt.. The Board
agreed not to put any sod on these sites
also since there will be hangers there
in the near future. Mr. Bellot
recommended that the bid be awarded
to Anderson Columbia with the
deletion of the noted items. Mr. Bellot
stated that he had looked at the sites
where the asphalt was to be removed
and said that the asphalt can be used to
fill miscellaneous places elsewhere so
that what is removed will not become a
liability.
The motion to award Anderson
Columbia the bid as amended was
made by Commissioner 'Hays and was
seconded by Commissioner Land.
Mr. Bellot stated that he had
received a memo concerning an
inspector for the activities and
construction at the Airport Site. An
Inspector will be continuously on site
as required by FAA and HTA has
agreed to monitor this.
The motion to have an inspector
continuously on site was made by
Commissioner Hays and was seconded
by Commissioner Land.
Mr. Bellot stated that June 1" will be
the opening day for bids on the 351 A
project. There has been a problem
with funding the entire project Mr.
Bellot stated. He has been
corresponding with Darabi and
Associates as well as Anderson
Columbia to see what cut backs could .
be made. There were many cuts that
could be made to the project including
silt fence and sodding. Also Tony
from Anderson Columbia is looking
into downgrading the guardrails from
interstate quality to quality that is
routinely used on state and county
projects. Mr. Bellot recommended to
the Board that the project be
contracted with these deletions before
job costs go up and we have to re-bid
the entire project. These changes will
bring it in under the Grant amount.
The motion to contract the job based
on Arthur Bellot's recommendation
was made by Commissioner Hays and
was seconded by Commissioner Land.
Mr. Bellot presented a letter from
the Clerk in Alachua County. They
are to hold their annual surplus
auction. There are some 544 Loaders
that were listed, so that we may
upgrade if that is the wishes of the
Board. The auction is August 14'h
from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The Board
requested that the staff look in to that,
Mr. Bellot reported that the
construction on the new Board Room
is nearly complete and that the next
Board Meeting may possibly be held at
this new room.
Mr. Chad Reed and Mr. Bellot
added that they would like to get
employee classification study as was
done for Gilchrist County and a master
plan for Dixie EMS as items of
consideration for the SCTAS Grant.
The motion to approve Chad's
request was made by Commissioner
Hays and was seconded by
Commissioner Lamb.


Mr. Bellot brought to attention the
FACT Conference in St. Augustine on
the 16'h and 17th of August.
Commissioner Chairman John
Driggers stated that he had met with
the city on the sewer and water for the
restaurant that is being put in at the
airport. The city has agreed to annex
the amount of property that the
building is going on. In order for
general leasing to put water and sewer
on this property there has to be a two
acre amendment. Commissioner Lamb
thins that the whole Board of
Commissioners needed to be present
for a decision like this. It was noted

that only the county property would be
affected by this, no citizens. Mr.
Bellot called Commissioner Valentine
on the phone to get his approval on
this matter.


The motion to approve the 2 acres of
the lease for annexation was made on
behalf of the Chairman by
Commissioner Hays and was seconded
by Commissioner Land. This was a
unanimous Board decision.
Mr. Bellot stated that he had
received a call from a Ronnie Williams
concerning the Boards purchase of the
land in Jena for a parking lot. Mr.
Williams stated that he has property
adjacent to Yellowjacket and in fact
boat ramp parking was partially on his
property now and wanted to know if
the board was interested in purchasing
this property to put parking or a boat
ramp in. Commissioner Hays
requested that Mr. Bellot obtain a land
survey and or an aerial photo of the
property and a cost from Mr. Williams,
that the Board is very interested.
LINDSEY LANDER, COUNTY
ATTORNEY
Mr. Lander stated that we needed to
adopt a resolution regarding home

The motion to adopt the resolution
was made by Commissioner Lamb and
was seconded by Commissioner Hays.

and something of that nature needed to
be put up out there. Commissioner
Land asked Howard Reed if there was
anywhere to even put signs. Mr. Reed
stated that they would have to ask the
surrounding property owners about
putting the signs on their property
because the county does not have
adequate right of way but he didn't see
where there would be any problems.

American Legion News
Last Saturday the Post 91 Family (American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 '
and Legion Post 91 members), held their Children and Youth Day, with-
games, food and fun for the area's youth. This was a fund raiser for the
Post and the programs the Post 91 Family uses in the community. Those.
members that worked this event felt that with the monies raised, they hadd
accomplished a good deal. More of these fund-raisers will be coming at
the Post Home on US-129. -
Another Post fund-raiser will be the "Fifties and Sixties Sock Hop" ofi
Saturday, October 14th. The Post Family will be sponsoring this event
and will have various snack foods to enjoy as well as coffee, iced tea and
lemonade, throughout the evening. This being a fund-raiser, the Post is
asking a five dollar donation at the door, with the refreshments included.
However, there is an ice cream and root beer float that will be available
for an extra price for those that are interested. Support your local
American Legion Post and come out for an evening of fun and friendship,
along with some Fifties and Sixties music to enjoy. Watch for the flyers
placed around the area for more details. This event is open to everyone;
you need not be a member of the Legion. Bring some friends and settle
back to enjoy "Old Times".
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 is working to complete a project
for our troops overseas. On Saturday, October 21, from 9:00 AM until
Noon, the Auxiliary Unit 91 will be stuffing Christmas stockings for
Christmas gifts to U.S. troops overseas. Last year the Fourth District
Auxiliary co-coordinated this project, but this year, due to the number of
stockings sent, it has been decided to let each Unit send them out, so keep
in mind that the Unit could use donations, not only for the stockings, but
for postage to mail the boxes overseas. Contact a member of the Auxiliary
Unit 91 for more information on this project and how you can help.
The Auxiliary meets on the second Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM
for the time being. The Unit meets at the Post Home five miles north of
Trenton on US-129 and there is ample parking, so all the ladies interested
in joining with the American Legion Auxiliary in working for our veterans.
and our community, come on out and see where you might fit in with the.
Post 91 Legion Family. There are programs to fit most everyone that will.
help our community and our veterans.
Trenton will have a Veterans Day Parade, on Friday, November 10,
2006. All interested parties can contact Major Stroupe, the Gilchrist
County Veteran Service Officer, from Tuesday through Thursday at his
office for more information. All Veteran Service Organizations are
invited to participate, just contact the County Service Officer to find out
the information.
Down Home Days will be Saturday, November 11. This is also the
opening day of General Gun Season for this area, but hunters can get up
early, go to their stands, and still get back in time to 'hunt' for that unusual
and crafty present for someone for Christmas. The Post 91 Family will.
have a booth again this year, so be sure to go by and check them out. It is
for another fund-raiser, so remember to help support your local American
Legion.
This is the time of year for parties and meetings so don't forget about
your local American Legion Post Homes that are available for some of
these events. They have roomy areas to meet and mingle, and ample
parking for all, as well as handicapped available facilities. Keep them in
mind for your meeting and party needs. Call them for more information.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world, each and every
day, in your thoughts and prayers. Here at home, watch over our Legion
Family, veterans, widows and the families of those service members called
to duty, helping out however and whenever we can.
For God and Country Wayne Gravely, Post 149

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Horseshoe Beach Utilities 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 we
received on 7/12/06 show that our system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels)
(MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and
Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standard for TTHMs and HAA5 are 80 and 60 micrograms per liter
(ug/L), respectively. The average level of TTHMs and HAA5s over the last year was 493 ug and 418ug
respectively.
What should I do?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs
and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of childbearing age may wish to seek alternative
water sources. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs can choose
alternative sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated
by an appropriate home water treatment devise, until we correct the problem. Appropriate
home water treatment devices are those certified by NSF for reducing DBPs in drinking water.

Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of MCL over many years
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 happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water
and creates the disinfection Byproduct.
What is being done?
The Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & The Department of
Environmental Protection to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12
months. For more information, please contact C.M. Odom @ (352) 498-7225 or Sheila Brown @ (352)
498-5234 Horseshoe Beach Utilities, P.O. Box 158, Horseshoe Beach, FL 32648.
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 Horseshoe Beach Utilities.

USING TOBACCO

Ballot Summary:
To protect people, especially youth, from
addiction, disease, and other health
hazards of using tobacco, the Legislature
shall use some Tobacco Settlement money
annually for a comprehensive statewide
tobacco education and prevention program
using Centers for Disease Control best
practices. Specifies some program
components, emphasizing youth, requiring
one-third of total annual funding for
advertising. Annual funding is 15% of 2005
Tobacco Settlement payments to Florida,
adjusted annually for inflation. Provides
definitions. Effective immediately.

Full Text:

BE IT ENACTED BY THE PEOPLE OF
FLORIDA THAT Article X, Florida
Constitution, is amended to add the
following:
Section 27. Comprehensive Statewide
Tobacco Education And Prevention
Program. In order to protect people,
especially youth, from health hazards of
using tobacco, including addictive
disorders, cancer, cardiovascular diseases,
and lung diseases; and to discourage use
of tobacco, particularly among youth, a
portion of the money that tobacco
companies pay to the State of Florida
under the Tobacco Settlement each year
shall be used to fund a comprehensive
statewide tobacco education and
prevention program consistent with
recommendations of the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as
follows:
(a) Program. The money appropriated
pursuant to this section shall be used to
fund a comprehensive statewide tobacco
education and prevention program
consistent with the recommendations for
effective program components in the 1999
Best Practices for Comprehensive
Tobacco Control Programs of the CDC, as
such Best Practices may be amended by
the CDC. This program shall include, at a
minimum, the following components, and
may include additional components that
are also contained within the CDC Best
Practices, as periodically amended, and
that are effective at accomplishing the
purpose of this section, and that do not
undermine the effectiveness of these
required minimum components:
(1) an advertising campaign to
discourage the use of tobacco and to
educate people, especially youth, about
the health hazards of tobacco, which shall
be designed to be effective at achieving
these goals and shall include, but need not
be limited to, television, radio, and print
advertising, with no limitations on any
individual advertising medium utilized; and
which shall be funded at a level equivalent
to one-third of each total annual
appropriation required by this section;
(2) evidence-based curricula and
programs to educate youth about tobacco
and to discourage their use of it, including,
but not limited to, programs that involve
youth, educate youth about the health
hazards of tobacco, help youth develop
skills to refuse tobacco, and demonstrate
to youth how to stop using tobacco;
(3) programs of local community-based
partnerships that discourage the use of
tobacco and work to educate people,
especially youth, about the health hazards
of tobacco, with an emphasis on programs
that involve youth and emphasize the
prevention and cessation of tobacco use;
(4) enforcement of laws, regulations, and
policies against the sale or other provision
of tobacco to minors, and the possession
of tobacco by minors; and
(5) publicly-reported annual evaluations
to ensure that moneys appropriated
pursuant to this section are spent properly,
which shall include evaluation of the
program's effectiveness in reducing and
preventing tobacco use, and annual
recommendations for improvements to
enhance the program's effectiveness,
which are to include comparisons to similar
programs proven to be effective in other
states, as well as comparisons to CDC
Best Practices, including amendments
thereto.
(b) Funding. In every year beginning
with the calendar year after voters approve
this amendment, the Florida Legislature
shall appropriate, for the purpose
expressed herein, from the total gross
funds that tobacco companies pay to the
State of Florida under the Tobacco
Settlement, an amount equal to fifteen
percent of such funds paid to the State in
2005; and the appropriation required by
this section shall be adjusted annually for
inflation, using the Consumer Price Index
as published by the United States
Department of Labor.
(c) Definitions. "Tobacco" includes,
without limitation, tobacco itself and
tobacco products that include tobacco and
are intended or expected for human use or
consumption, including, but not limited to,
cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, and
smokeless tobacco. The "Tobacco
Settlement" means that certain Settlement
Agreement dated August 25, 1997, entered
into in settlement of the case styled as
State of Florida, et al. v. American Tobacco
Company, et al., Case No. 95-1466 AH
(Fla. 15th Cir. Ct.), as amended by
Stipulation of Amendment dated
September 11, 1998; and includes any
subsequent amendments and successor
agreements. "Youth" includes minors and
young adults.
(d) Effective Date. This amendment
shall become effective immediately upon
approval by the voters.


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