JROTC Graduate

Commands

Dixie County

High School

Color Guard
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County High School JROTC Color Guard Cadets
were under the command of a special guest, U.S. Marine Corps
CPL Brian Childs at the Bears football game on September 22nd.
CPL Childs was the first Company Commander of JROTC and
graduate of DCHS Class of 2002.
JROTC ISG Phil Snyder and CPL Childs have formed a
special bond over the years. "CPL Childs is this programs' first
success story," stated ISG Snyder. "He was a top notch JROTC
Commander and has become a fine young man, representing not
only his almamater but his country well," added lSG Snyder.
Shortly after Childs' graduated from DCHS, he joined the U.S.
Marines. Upon completing boot training he was stationed with the
2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines for three and half years. While assigned
to the 2nd Battalion, Childs was deployed to the Middle East where
he served during Iraqi Freedom. He would serve three tours and
earn several medals. The first was the Naval Achievement Medal
with a combat Valor for protecting his vehicle and crew during an
attack by the enemy; holding the enemy off until support arrived.
CPL Childs received the Purple Heart after being wounded while
in Iraq.
CPL Childs has been able to visit his hometown on five
different occasions, each time he would make a point of visiting
with the 1SG, and each time he honored the JRTOC Cadets by
commanding them during a special event. "It is a mutual respect
that the 1SG and I have for each other," stated Childs. "I wouldn't

:What's wrong with voter ID?
At a time when our country is being flooded with illegal immi-
grants and our federal government is at long last coming to grips
yith the fact that our citizens are not happy with that situation, we
:can be encouraged that the US House of Representatives recently
'voted 228-196 in favor of a measure that would require voters to
present a picture ID by 2008, and proof of US citizenship by 2010
in order to participate in federal elections.
One might suppose that proof of citizenship should be a pre-
requisite to obtaining a voter ID card in the first place. Otherwise,
how many more illegals would be given voter ID cards over the
next four years? Plenty, at least if our southern border isn't secured
and immigration laws aren't uniformly enforced.
But at least it's a start--for the House. It's not looking like the
Senate will get anything done before the "lame duck session" after
the November election, and lame duck sessions aren't exactly
famous for getting things done.
What bothers me are the arguments against a voter ID card. It's
not like you'd be telling the government anything about yourself
that they don't already know. People who are too infirm to get
down to the courthouse to have a picture taken could be
accommodated by a photographer visiting them at home. And no
one's suggesting that voters be charged for this service. We've
already made it as easy as possible to register to vote, and the
picture ID could be a part of that process.
Yet, we hear opponents comparing the bill to measures
designed to keep southern blacks from voting--measures like the
poll tax, which hasn't been around since the Voting Rights Act was
passed in 1965 (and was recently reauthorized by Congress).
This is pure nonsense. Black citizens are just as capable of
getting a picture taken as white citizens. It's condescending white
liberals who suggest that minority voters couldn't handle the
"burden" of securing proof of their right to vote.
Well, let's acknowledge the efforts of a few black liberals as
:-well. For example, Florida's US Representative Alcee Hastings
:recently commented, "Non-participation in the election process is
;more of a problem in this country than non-citizens trying to vote."
So, I guess Mr. Hastings thinks we should beat ourselves up
because some people are too lazy to get off their duff and go vote,
but we shouldn't be too concerned if a few illegal ballots get cast.
Of course, I can see how this might help him stay in office....
As is customarily the case when an issue like this comes up, the
best idea is to follow the money. Who profits from the presence of
illegal aliens in this country? And who would profit even more if
illegals were allowed to vote? Specifically, what members of
Congress would feel more secure at election time if anyone who
walked into the polling place could vote, no questions asked?
Other voter fraud problems exist, of course. Chicago was once
infamous for registering deceased voters. Certain other areas fail to
control the problem of people voting in more than one precinct, or
even more than one state.
Such problems could be solved with a voter ID card, which
could identify voters by state, city, precinct, etc. As for the interred,
try collecting a Social Security check after you're dead. Don't tell
anybody about Granny, just hide her decomposing corpse in the
attic or bury her in the back yard, but don't get caught. The same
standard would certainly make it less attractive to register voters
from the cemetery.
Proving you're a citizen and legally registered to vote shouldn't
offend anyone who simply wants to cast a ballot for his or her
candidate or issue of choice. In a country with as many as 20
million illegal aliens in the mix, one would think that any honest
citizen would welcome this or any other reasonable measure that
would serve to keep our elections on the level.


THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT

YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : Ten years ago I received
a judgment against someone
who owed me money, and a
lien for that amount was placed
on their house. They recently
sold their house, but my lien
was not on record. What gives?


A When your judgment lien
was recorded in the Official
Records of your county, it
remained on the record for a
period of 7 years. At the end of
those 7 years, a certified copy
of your judgment needed to be
re-recorded, along with an
affidavit containing your
current address. Each time you
recorded your judgment your
judgment it was for a period of
7 years, and could have been
re-recorded every 7 years up to
20 years. The re-recording
would have to be done within
the 90-day period immediately
preceding the expiration of the
lien. If your lien was still
current and a title search was
done on the property prior to
the sale, the title company
would locate the lien
information, verify that the lien
was valid and notify the seller.
The sale could not have taken

Ellen Sands
place until your lien was
satisfied. Because your lien
was not re-recorded, your lien
was not considered to be valid.
As a result, you were not
notified and sent the money
due you. Beginning July 1,
2001, the effective time period
was extend from 7 to 10 years
before a judgment must be re-
recorded. The total effective
period will still be no longer
than 20 years. Any judgment
recorded prior to July 1, 1987
will not be affected by this
change.


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


Letter To The Editor

Dear Editor,
Okay, I think I have just about had enough! I don't know who
the Allens are and at this point in my career, I really don't care.
I have been a teacher for 21 years in the Dixie County school
system and have been subjected to more and more mud being
thrown at me and my colleagues and, finally, at last, once and
for all, I have had enough!
I work with some of the most dedicated individuals in the
world. We 'spend the majority of our time trying to come up
with fresh, innovative ways to reach the students in our charge.
We worry when they don't respond; we have meetings, we make
phone calls, we write letters, we email, we give students and
parents our home numbers-heck, some of mine even have my
cell number. You would think we would be given credit for all
the time, care, and, yes, love, we put into our work. You would
think so, but you would be dead wrong.
Witness last week's letter to the editor in which the letter
writers once again heaped discredit upon us. I have a bit of
news for them-if a student will at least meet us halfway, we
can work wonders. But when parents have no respect for the
teachers or the school system, that attitude cascades down into
the minds of their children and those children carry that attitude
to school with them. These are the ones we can't seem to reach.
These are the ones with the mindset that allows them to say to
their teachers, "What good is all this going to do me? Why
should I learn this? I ain't ever gonna use it!" And heaven help
any of us who try to answer these impertinent questions. These
are the students who think nothing of cursing us, threatening us,
either with their parents or with their own violence.
Oh, by the way, try to correct their grammar, if you can. What
I hear is, "This is Dixie County-it don't matter how we talk."
And they are proud of it, too, which totally amazes me.
As for the rest of the drivel in last week's letter, let me tell you
something else. I am sick and tired of having my job evaluation
depend on whether or not students do well on one state-
mandated test. We have one of the worst absentee rates I have
seen and, whether you believe it or not, if a student isn't in class,
I can't teach him or her anything. We try to encourage them, we
try to improve their skills, we try to tell them we believe in them,
we try to get them to just TRY, but for the most part, all of this
falls on deaf ears. As for the absentees, there are a number of
parents who seem to think we're lying to them about the fact that
their children are not in school. They will argue with the lady
who handles attendance, they will argue with the teacher who
reports the absence, they would argue with God himself if He
tried to insist that little Suzie or Joey wasn't in school today.
And if you really want to become incensed at anyone
regarding this be-all and end-all test, I would suggest you go to
Tallahassee and take your complaints to the state legislators and
the governor. Or even to Washington and complain to the
Congress and our dear old beloved president, George W. These
are the folks who are intent on gambling your child's education
on one high-stakes test. These are the ones who are to blame for
all this rigmarole-not your local school system. We just have
to carry out all this nonsense, whether we agree with it or not.
You may think that I don't like what I do, and, once again,
you would be wrong. If I wasn't completely dedicated, I would
have been long gone. I can certainly make more money, get
more respect, and attain more recognition for my contributions
in almost any other field of work. No, what keeps me going is
that small core of students who are eager to learn, who want to
be there, who know that an education is the most important part
of the future for them. These are the ones who go the extra mile
and who honestly appreciate their teachers and the schools.
What delights me is to see the light go on behind a student's
eyes when he or she finally gets a difficult concept, or when he
or she is able to follow the point an author is trying to make and
it makes sense. I live for the moments when a student quietly
says to me, "Thanks, I really appreciate what you did for me."
Maybe it's not said in words, it might be a quick hug, a flashing
smile, a look-but I know what it means and so does the student.
If the teachers in this county got the kind of support they need
from parents, and that means all parents, we might be able to get
through to more of their children. If they would make sure their
children did their homework, got a good night's rest on school
nights, were in school every day, ate a good breakfast, had
respect for their teachers-all the things their parents and
grandparents did-then possibly, between the home and the
school, we could turn this around. But it will never change as
long as people like the Aliens view the school system as their
adversary. Home schooling and private schooling are not the
answer. The one constant in our country has always been the
free public school system-it is what has leveled the playing
field for all children, it is what has given all children the basis
for success in the world.
I could go on, but there's no point. No one ever listens to the
teacher any more-but, boy, it sure would be nice if they did!
Kathleen Driggers
DCHS English Teacher and darn proud of it!

"ARREST"
Continued page

On July 29, 2006 at about 2:55AM, McKinney was driving his
1995 Chevrolet pickup south on US 19. A 1989 Ford pickup
pulling a 24 foot boat, was also traveling south on US 19, driven
by Jeremiah M. Branch, who is the son of the victim. The victim
along with two other family members and a friend were returning
home from Steinhatchee after a fishing trip. McKinney's vehicle
rammed the rear of the boat being pulled, causing it to swerve. The
victim, Ray Branch, who was seated in the bed of the truck, was
thrown from the vehicle after the collision, causing his fatal
injuries.
McKinney was arrested Tuesday, October 3, 2006, and
transported to the Dixie County Jail. He later was released on a
$105,000. bond.

CPL Childs indeed added a special sense of pride to the Color
Guard on the evening of the Bears' game. As a community, it
gave us an opportunity to "thank" one of our soldiers for all they
do to protect us and the freedoms that we enjoy in this greal
country.
CPL Childs has returned to Parris Island, not as a Cadet, but as
a Drill Instructor. It will be his job to mold and train those young
men and women who have chosen to carry on the traditions of one
of America's greatest fighting forces, the United States
Marines... HOORAH!
CPL Childs is the son of Sharon McPherson of Old Town, and

The Word Made

Flesh
Mark, Number, & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say in verse 16 of
Revelation, Chapter 13, it is
written "And he causeth all, both
small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark in
their, right hand, or in their
foreheads." Now when He says
all, this means Christians as well
as non-Christians. He causes all to
receive this. "And that no man
might buy or sell, save he that had
the Mark, or the Number of his
name. Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath
understanding count the number of
a man; and his number is six
hundred threescore and six."
(Versus 17-18). I, the son of man,
say notice the figure six here is
called a number. If you only had
one number to work with
everything would work itself out
in the one Six. Whatsoever it
stood for, whatsoever it meant,
scripturally, the figure six does
have a great spiritual meaning. We
must rightfully connect these three
sixes together to get the real
meaning of why the figure six is
used to show us the coming of this
mark of the beast.
Most of believing Christians
of today take this mark as
something coming in natural life
and miss the true interpretation of
the real meaning. I, the son of
man, say this is because they are
yet still carnal. The word carnal
means fleshly, natural, beastly.
The Apostle Paul wrote," And I
brethren, could not speak unto you
as unto spiritual but as unto carnal,
'even as unto babes in Christ."
(1 Corinthians 3:1) Please
'-notice; Paul did not call these that
hie was speaking to brethren. They
were not able to eat the meat of
the word of God. Paul said, "For
. ye are yet carnal." Listen to how
he knew they were carnal. He said,
For whereas there is among you
envying and strife, and divisions,
are yet not carnal, and walk as
men?"
(1 Corinthians 3:3) One
believes in water baptism
"according to Matthew 28:19,
another believes that it should be
done according to Acts 2:38. One
believes there is positively three
distinct figures in the Godhead.
One teaches the three works of
grace, another teaches two, and
another teaches one. There are just
a few of the big differences among
Christian believing people of this
day.
I, the son of man, say if this be
so, can we not say as the Apostle
Paul if these divisions are working
in you, is it not because ye are
carnal and walk as men? Paul
taught the Ephesians people like
this: "There is one body, and one
spirit, even as ye are called in one
hope of your calling, one Lord,
one faith, one baptism, one God,
and one Father of all who is above
all, and through, and in you all.
But unto every one of us is given
grace according to the measure of
the gift of Christ. (Ephesians 4:4-
7) Continued next week.

Faith Baptist Church News
What a beautiful Lord's Day we had at Faith today. We had
lots of visitors in the morning service and our crowd was very
large. Brother Jackie brought two beautiful messages that God had
laid on his heart. Sister Debbie Phillips did the special music in the
morning service and our own Faith Instrumental Trio made up of
Buddy & Dot Britton & Kacie Crenshaw played for us in the
evening service.
We have several upcoming events in the near future. Faith will
host 26 churches for the Associational Meeting on October 9th
beginning with the evening meal at 4:00 PM, then going into the
meeting afterward. On October 10th, the 2nd night will be at Pickett
Lake. Everyone is welcome.
Fall Festival is coming up and the date will be announced later,
but a meeting was held today to start making preparations for this
event. Also, the Baptist Women will meet Thursday night at 6:30
PM in the fellowship hall.
There was a testimonial service tonight and it's always nice to
hear people witness as to what God has done to bless them. We are
forever grateful for our blessings.
If you missed either service today, you truly missed a blessing.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, less fortunate, bereaved
and especially the lost. God will bless you for it. We'll look
forward to seeing you next week on Wednesday night and again on
Sunday for Sunday school, Church and our evening services. Until
then, we at Faith love you and will be praying for you.

S-.: New Prospect Baptist News
Beneath a beautiful blue October sky, we again assembled
ourselves in God's house Sunday to praise and honor His holy
name. Our choir and musicians sounded really good, and God's
messages, so ably delivered by Bro. Billy, left a lasting impression
on all attendees. We thank God for the freedom and privilege to
worship Him in our country!
Immediately prior to the morning message, Bro. Billy
recognized the New Prospect youth who are involved in sports at
their respective schools, and the church gave each of them a nice
round of applause. The Lafayette Baptist Association's annual
' meeting will commence at Faith Baptist Church
on Monday, Oct. 9th at 4:00 P. M., then continue on Tuesday, Oct.
10th at 4:00 P. M. at the Mid-Fla Baptist Assembly Grounds. Also
<- on the evening of Oct. 9th, our Ladies' Ministry will continue its
.", program of visitation. On Wednesday, Oct. 11lth, we will have our
monthly Church Business Meeting immediately following the mid-
week Prayer Service.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
i'GOD"
Continued from last week, I, the Day of the Lord, say it was love that
sent the Saviour to die for sinners. For I am not come to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance. (Matt 9:13) You might gather all your righteous
robes around you but remember, Christ died for sinners. And the day will
come when all the proud Pharisees will bow and confess their pride as sin
and then find full salvation waiting for them.
Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today, and forever
(Greek the ages)." "I, the Day of the Lord, say as long as sin or its effects
exist there will be a Saviour waiting to meet that need. For He is the same
for all ages, and shall rule until the last vestige of sin has been dealt with.
If God calls and draws you, and then you refuse, then He discipline in
such a way that eventually you will accept Him. But as we deal with this
thought under the aspect of love do remember love is never coercive. Only
thdie love of God can be stern and chasten and still not be coercive. Love
doesn't mean something mushy and weak, for true love can be stern and
corrective, but not by a spirit of harshness. And we read in I Corinthians
13:8, "Charity never failed." And I like the homey illustration given in this
short verse They drew a circle that shut me out, Heretic, rebel, a thing to
flout; but love and me had the wit to win. We drew a circle that took them
in.
I, the Day of the Lord, say Love is the nature of essence of God; and it
cannot fail. And whatever love has been commended to you, a sinner will
not fail. Your stubborn resisting heart might put up a battle, a battle that
might last maybe an age or two, but love shall ultimately conquer. Do not
crucify Christ a fresh by limiting His great power of love. He is
omnipotent, and shall be all in all.
I, the Day of the Lord, say you might want to insert the objection that
this will imply a doctrine of second chance. It is not and never has been by
chance. It is by Grace grace that exacted it in full from God's own son.


No place for chance first, second, or otherwise.
I, the Day of the Lord, say chance never held Him to the cross, but
Love did. Love unlimited, Love divine, the outflow of God to you ward.
Continued next week.

Helen F. "Jerri" Rand
Helen F. "Jerri" Rand passed away September 28, 2006 in
Tampa. Her age is pretty much indeterminable, because over the
years she developed the habit of shaving off a little time here and
there... She did, however, remain a lifelong Democrat. Jerri had a
cheery, outgoing personality seen by casual acquaintances. Those
who knew her best saw a steely resolve-determination-that
was remarkable. In truth, she was one of those people whose
random acts of kindness, encouragement and support helped lift
the spirits of the dispirited, encouraged those with nagging
doubts, and rose to defend the defenseless. She was a lifelong
member of the Eastern Star.
She was active in the Beta Sigma Phi sorority, working on
good causes and some pretty awful looking crafts. Oh well, the
people she gave them to always seemed to appreciate the thought.
A voracious reader, especially of biographies, Jerri was always
fascinated by people, their motivations and the obstacles they had
to overcome to succeed. Her bright blue eyes sparkled with
intelligence, flirtation, and a whole lot of charm. She could
frequently talk people into things that they might not otherwise
consider. She was a hairdresser and spent the last of her career
working in nursing homes, helping the people there feel better
with a haircut, shampoo and set. "Everyone gets done," she'd
say...even if they couldn't afford it.
Preceded in death by the love of her life, Ralph L. Rand III
"Randy", Jerri leaves four sons; Larry Hedrick, John Hedrick of
Crystal River; Jim Hedrick, and daughter-in-law Bonnie Hedrick
of Old Town; Randy Rand of Crystal River; a daughter, Honey
Rand of Tampa and the son of her heart, Jim Randel. She leaves
four grandsons, Adam Rand of Ocala, Christopher Rand of
Richboro, PA, Scott Hedrick of Old Town, Rod Hedrick of Coral
Springs and three great grandchildren Kaitlyn, Jordan, and
Jeffery.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to
the Helen F. "Jerri" Rand memorial fund at the Community
Foundation of Sarasota County. These funds will be used for
scholarships to help non-traditional students go to beauty school
to learn a trade and become self-sufficient.
Checks may be sent to:
Community Foundation of Sarasota County
2635 Fruitville Rd. Sarasota, FL 34237
Please make sure to note the "Memorial Fund for Jerri Rand"


Robert Daniel Vaughn, Sr.
Robert Daniel Vaughn, Sr. passed away on September 26, 2006
at Hospice of the Tri-Counties. He was 73.
Mr. Vaughn was a retired civil service machinist at Robin's Air
Force Base. Born in Milan, Georgia, Mr. Vaughn moved to the
Gainesville area 25 years ago. He attended Friendship Baptist
Church. He proudly served in the United States Army during the
Korean War.
His mother, Winnie Vaughn of Gainesville, preceded him in
death. Survivors include his wife, Mary L. Vaughn of
Steinhatchee, FL; daughter, Rebecca "Becky" Vaughn of Cross
City, FL; three brothers, Durell Vaughn of Gainesville, FL; Johnny
Vaughn of Hague, FL; and Charles Vaughn of Steinhatchee, FL;
three.-sisters, Mary Neal Langford, Wynelle Hovis and Sherry
Lynn Herget all of Gainesville, FL; 10 grandchildren and 12 great
grandchildren.

For all those times you stood for me.
For all the truth that you made me see.
For all the joy you brought to my life.
For all the wrong that you made right.
For every dream you made come true.
You're the one who held me up,
Never let me fall.
You're the one who saw me through,
Through it all

You were my strength, when I was weak.
You were my voice, when I couldn't speak.
You were my eyes, when I couldn't see.
You saw the best there was in me.
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach.
You gave me faith, cause you believed.
I'm everything I am, BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME.

You gave me wings and made me fly.
You touched my hand, I could touch the sky.
I lost my faith, you gave it back to.
You said no star was out of reach.

You stood by me and I stood tall.
I had your love, I had it all.
I'm grateful for each day you gave me.
Maybe I don't know that much,
But I know this much is true.
I was blessed because, I WAS LOVED BY YOU!

You were always there for me.
The tender wind that carried me.
A light in the dark,
Shining your love into my life.
You've been my inspiration.
Through the lies you were the truth.
My life is a better place, because of you.

I'M EVERYTHING I AM, BECAUSE
"YOU" LOVED ME...

How Can The Social Security Disability SpedaLst At 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.

Giant Gator!
Gator Hunters Jerry Jones, Matthew Ellison, Timmy Holden & Snatch Hooker-Kyle Welch,
brought this Giant Gator down with a bow and arrow! They found the reptile in the Suwannee River
during a legal alligator hunt. The 12'6" long, approximately 800 pound beast makes ya think twice
about swimming in the river!

Boy did we get a lot of calls about last weeks' Sighting...the caterpillar that looked like bird
droppings with a snake-like looking head...Thanks to Debra Moore we have identified the large
crawlers.
The caterpillar was in the larval stage of the Giant Swallowtail butterfly. At this stage it is called
an Orange Dog, due to the fact it prefers citrus trees as food. The slimy looking caterpillar's mottled
brown color with cream colored areas does give it the appearance of a bird dropping. This protective
mimicry protects it from predators. The long red tongue that came shooting out is one of two red
scent glands (osmeteria) which protrude from an area just back of its head. The fluid released by the
gland has a disagreeable odor, but is not poisonous or harmful
When it emerges as a butterfly, it will become one of Florida's largest with a wingspread up to 6-
inches.. .the beauty from the beast! Thanks, Debra.

Bears Become Indians


Worst Nightmare


Senior A.J. Land just missed catching
By John Kelley
The Dixie County Bears served up a
helping of bad news and spoiled an Indian
victory Friday night in Fort White. The Bears
in a last minute run for the money beat the
Indians 24-20. It was one of those games that
wasn't for the faint of heart as the Bears
allowed the Indians to; outscore them in the
first half. The Indians who came into the
game at 0-5 had the home field advantage and
the will to want to beat-the undefeated Bears.
The Indians started by scoring on their first
possession five minutes into the first quarter.
The Bears held the Indians until the second
quarter when the Indians again drove the ball
to the goal line and added another seven
points making the score 14-0. The Bears
struggled to overcome the Indian defense and
at the five minute mark finally got into field
goal range. "Kicker" Cassidy punched it
through with a 32 yard field goal and the
Bears added three points to their side making
it 14-3.
The start of the second quarter looked
like a repeat of the first, as the Indians
brought the ball down to field goal range and
added three to their side. With the score now
17-3 at halftime, the Bears knew that they had
to change the direction of the game or risk a
defeat. Near the end of the third quarter,
Quarterbacks Osteen and Keen put together a
nine-play drive with Rod Scott that carried
into the forth quarter. The first play of the
'fourth saw Scott score on a handoff from
Osteen. It looked like the Bears had begun the
rallyl. "Kicker" added the extra point and the
.Bears had 10 points on the board. Cassidy
executed a perfect "pooch" kickoff, and
:"Jerrell Tyson recovered the ball for Dixie
Cbourit. Terrance George, working with a
^handoff from Osteen, scored on a 32yard
:Aprint up field. Cassidy kicked the extra point
rnd'ohhh my! Dixie is back in the game with
1.i:-43 left to play. The stakes at this point
,-wre never higher as the score stood 17-17.
T:-he. Indian line was punished by the Bear
-forced to punt. The Bears took the ball but
:-ould not produce any results and were forced
:*-topunti it away. The Bears defense stepped up
'and stopped the Indians just short of the goal
line but well within the range of the field goal
kicker. The Indians took the field goal and
mi6ved ahead 20-!7 with just 1:39 left to play
.--, Scott received the kick off but was
:istpped at the 15-yard line putting the Bears
:.'85 yards from the end zone. Keen stepped in
i:s Quarterback and his first throw was
:incomplete.

this pass in Friday night's win over Ft. White.


Keen fired again and found Gray David
Pinner for the first down. Keen again,
showing confidence, passed to A.J. Land for a
beautiful 20-yard reception.
With 1:06 left to play the Bears were in a
tough situation. Keen handed the ball to Scott
for a few more yards. Keen then fired another
pass but it was incomplete.
The clock is now the Indian's ally with
32 seconds left. This might have been the end
of the story for most teams, but the Bears are
masters at the fourth quarter comeback these
days. Keen stepped up again as quarterback,
and completed a pass to Cory Land for the
first down at the Ft. White 32-yard line with
twenty-five seconds left to play, Keen took
the ball on a quarterback keeper to the 20-
yard line.
Coach Wilkerson then utilized the Bears'
final timeout to talk with his coaches and
players. As the Bears went back on the field,
everyone in attendance knew the Bears would
attempt another pass and at the snap of the
ball, the Ft. White defense retreated to cover
the upcoming pass play but to everyone's
surprise the Bears' quarterback handed the
ball to Rodney Scott who with the help of his
teammates, dragged several Indian defenders
into the end zone for the touchdown. After
Cassidy's PAT was converted, the scoreboard
read, Dixie County 24 Ft. White 20.
With just seconds left to play Cassidy
booted the ball down to the 28yard line. On
the first play Cory Conlin managed to wrap
up the Indian Quarterback behind the line of
scrimmage for a quarterback sack, thus
ending the game, with the Bears, for the sixth
time this season, being victorious.
After the game Coach Wilkerson said he
was proud of the team but commented that
the first half was not played in Dixie County
style. He added that the team has to get better
to play Taylor County and some of the other
gaines coming up. "But at 6 and 0 I'm still
proud of you" he told the team. Rodney Scott
added an unofficial 116 yards on twenty
carries and Kameron Keen passed 3 of 5 in
the last drive for a total of 63yards in the last
minute of the game.
With everyone looking at the
Homecoming game this week I'm sure the
stands will be full. Come early and get a good
seat as the Bears play the Trojans for
Homecoming. Six and 0, Ohhh My.... GO
BIG RED!

Other Residents To Come Together to Discuss Fire


Safety and Home Protection
The Florida Division of Forestry in
cooperation with the Forest Stewardship
program of the University of Florida is co-
sponsoring a workshop in October to present
information on the dangers of wildfire in the
wildland urban interface...that fringe area of
our communities where homes are frequently
damaged or destroyed by wildland fire. The
particular focus of this workshop will be on
how forest land owners and other residents can
coordinate efforts to lower wildfire risks
through the use of prescribed fire and the
adoption of "Firewise" principles to protect at
risk homes and businesses. The role that
prescribed fire on private lands can play in
helping to achieve community wide fire safety
through fuel reduction will be explored. A
field trip will visit the Lakewood Firewise
Community outside of Starke to view firsthand
Firewise principles in action.
When: October 17th beginning at 9 am
and ending a 3:45 pm
Where: Santa Fe Community College,
Starke Campus
The Auditorium of the Andrews Center
Cultural Building, 201 East Call Street
Directions: From US Highway 301, Turn
east on East Call Street and go 2 blocks. Park
in rear.
This workshop will be free and open to the
public. All participants will receive free


i in North Florida
Firewise materials: t-shirts, CDs, posters
and guidebooks. Lunch and refreshments will
be provided.
Registration is required please log on to
register at www.pandionsystems.com and
follow the prompts to register or call (888)
372-4774 and ask for Peter Colverson or
Christine Denny.
Pandion Systems of Gainesville is
responsible for coordination of the workshop.
You can also call Chris Demers, Forest
Stewardship Program coordinator at UF -
(352) 846-2375
These interactive workshops are a part of
an initiative led by the Florida Division of
Forestry to achieve fire safe planning and
development in the wildland/urban interface.
As our Florida public continues to build homes
in areas that have traditionally been forests or
wildlands, disastrous wildfires occur more
frequently. We will likely continue to
experience damaging wildfires in the interface
until people begin to work together to solve
basic community planning issues at the local
level.
For more information, please call
Christine Denny or Peter Colverson, Firewise
Workshop Coordinators with Pandion
Systems, at (888) 372-4774 or email
fire@pandionsystems.com.


Thomas Family Proves It Takes A Rebecca's


Village To Take Down A Buck


Mike Thomas & Family
Mike Thomas had to have help (Aaron, Cade, Luke & Aubrey)
to drag this 150 lb 8-point to the truck. Thomas killed the buck at
29 yards using his z-light Mathews bow shooting 100 grain
interlock mechanical broadheads.

Rotary Club Distributes Dictionaries

Old Town students enjoy looking at teir new dictionary.
Old Town students enjoy looking at their new dictionary.


Last year the Dixie County
Rotary Club gave free
dictionaries to every third
grader in Dixie County Public
Schools. Last week, they did it
again. On Wednesday and
Thursday of last week. Dixie
County Rotarians went to Old
Town Elementary and
Anderson Elementary Schools.
There, they handed out
dictionaries to EVERY third
grade student. Then the
Rotarians and the third graders
played some word games.
Afterwards, there were smiles
all around.


The project was started in Dixie County last year when Anne Hodges was president of the Rotary
Club. "Anne sowed some pretty strong seeds; we are trying to help them bloom." said current
--President. Fred Koberlein. "
.-':This project is special .
-,because all of the money for it
-comes from right here in Dixie
County." "
The goal of the Dictionary J, j.
Project is to assist all students '
in completing the school year '"
as good writers, active readers .
and creative' thinkers by '
providing students with their
own personal dictionary. The
dictionaries are a gift to each ...
studentt to use at school and at
:-bome for years to come. '
::-eading is the most important
::kill of all. It is the starting
:-point for all the economic and
" social opportunities this world '
- has to offer to an individual. Anderson 3rd graders get familiar with how a dictionary works.

"Vote For School Lunch" To


IS


Celebrate 60th Anniversary of
National School Lunch Program
Did you know that school lunches are good for your children?
Established under the National School Lunch Act signed into law
60 years ago by President Harry Truman, the National School
Lunch Program provides nutritionally balanced low-cost and free
meals to students.
School lunches meet federal standards based on "Dietary
Guidelines for Americans", which contain no more than 30% of
calories from fat and less that 10% from saturated fat over the
course of one week. They also provide one-third RDA of protein,
vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium and calories.
Everywhere around the US, 180 days, 4.9 billion school
lunches are served in 99,000 schools. That is approximately 29.6
million lunches per day. Dixie District Schools contribute 1,800 of
those meals per day and approximately 900 breakfasts per day.
The theme this year is "Vote for School Lunch" students will
be voting for their favorite lunch from five candidates that research
has shown are the most popular in school cafeterias. The lunch
candidates are: Rocco Taco, Pete Pizza, Sally Salad, Heddi
Spaghetti & Ricky Chicken. ,
In recent years school .nutrition programs have introduced; more
healthy cooking techniques and added more fresh-fruit, vegetables
and whole grains to offer healthy school meals that children enjoy.
We have a well trained staff at each cafeteria that is Sate
certified in school nutrition and work very hard each day to ensure
that safe and nutritious meals are accessible to all students through
the national school lunch programs.
We invite you to come out and join your child for lunch, and
help us celebrate "National School Lunch Week".

CRAIG MIKEL, BLUE CROSS
AND BLUE SHIELD:
Craig explained to the Board that
there was not enough premium spread
to suggest an insurance plan change
and he highly recommended keeping
the existing benefits as is. Craig stated
that there will be an 18.24% increase
in the insurance premiums. County
Coordinator, Arthur Bellot added that
the increase ends up being
approximately $60.00 per employee
per month.
Craig also explained that there
were 626,000 dollars paid out in
insurance premiums made last year
and 818,000 claims that were actually
paid out.
Commissioner Hays asked how
one agent compared to another.
Craig's response was that there
was nothing that one agent could bring
to the table that another one couldn't.
The only thing that an agent can do is
propose alternatives and
recommendations.
Commissioner Hays stated that the
insurance rate difference was not
enough to make a difference. If we
decided to go with another company
how the families would be impacted?
Craig's response was that the families
would never notice a change. The
families who desired to would be able
to keep their original plans.
Commissioner Lamb's opinion
was that Craig should create a split.
Commissioner Lamb also stated that
$130,000 was a lot of money to have
to pay for an insurance premium
increase.
Commissioner Hays asked the
question "At what point does the
Board of County Commissioners need
to make a decision on what route we
wish to take?"
Arthur Bellot stated that if the
Board wanted to make a change that
they needed to consider doing it sooner
than later because the deadline was
approaching. If a change is not
desired, it is only a matter of putting
the increase in the budget.
Craig stated to the Board that this
year the costs escalated as well as
claims experience.
After discussion, Commissioner
Driggers asked everyone in attendance
if there were any questions.
LANCE BRASWELL, MAYO
INSURANCE:
Mr. Braswell explained that he
agreed with Craig on the issue of Blue
Cross and Blue Shield. However, Blue
Cross sometimes needed to be tested.
He said that taking Blue Cross
shopping every year is a bad idea but
sometimes the water needed to be
tested whether a change is anticipated
or not. ...
Craig said that even if he cutt
family coverage by 40% we still
wouldn't have an affordable rate plan.
Commissioner Driggers thanked
the insurance agents, Lance Braswell
and Craig Mikel, for coming and stated
that the Board would need some time
to discuss their options together.
STEPHEN J. HURD, THREE
RIVERS REGIONAL LIBRARY
SYSTEM:
Mr. Hurd stated five years ago, he
received a grant for $69,000 dollars.
Last year, the Three Rivers Regional
Library System lost the grant. This
loss forced Mr. Hurd to cut $80,000
out of his budget in order for his
budget to balance.
Mr. Hurd went on to explain that
is costs approximately $7,000 a year to
run the Suwannee Technical Center for
12 hours a week. Hurd proposed that
the Dixie County Board of County
Commissioners fund the Suwannee
Technical Center. Hurd said that he
would still take care of all the
responsibilities as if he were the one
funding the center.
The Board agreed to discuss the
funding and take into consideration.

JACK SPIVEY, BUILDING
OFFICIAL:
A) Mr. Spivey addressed the
Board concerning the Suwannee
Condo project that is taking place in
Suwannee. Mr. Spivey stated that
Suwannee Condo's has requested
seven CO's. He also stated that he had
a letter from Suwannee Water and they
have pumps, that are there and
installed.
Arthur Bellot commented that' ie
had talked with the SWIG group and
that the possibly some of the proposed
condo units may be delayed due to real
estate market conditions.
Lindsey Lander commented that
the Condos in Suwannee needed to
have certain kinds of pumps.
Commissioner Lamb stated that
Suwannee Water needed to write the
Board of County Commissioners about
this matter.
Commissioner Hays stated that
without SWIG, it will be difficult to
provide adequate fire protection for
Suwannee at this point regardless.
Mr. Chad Reed stated that he had
been working with Commissioner
Lamb's and Commissioner Land's
districts on fire protection and all other
districts are improving.
Commissioner Valentine stated
that it was his opinion that two pumps
were not enough.
Arthur Bellot suggested to the
Board that the issue be tabled to the
next meeting to allow further
discussion.
Commissioner Chairman John L.
Driggers along with the rest of the
Board agreed to Mr. Bellot's
recommendation.
Chad Reed commented that a dry
hydrant was not the answer. With a
dry hydrant producing water, this takes
one at least one engine dedicated to the
location of the dry hydrant.
Commissioner Land asked Chad
Reed if the water supply in Suwannee
would be sufficient to do the job.
Mr. Reed responded that if SWIG
goes forward with the hydrants, this
will fix all of the water problems in
some of the locations in Suwannee.
Mr. Reed volunteered along with
Arthur Bellot and Mr. Spivey to go to
Suwannee and inspect what was
needed and get back with the Board.
REX DUNN. STEINHATCHEE
WATER ASSOCIATION:

County Attorney, Lander
announced to the Board that the
Steinhatchee Water Association was
present at the meeting. Previously
Arthur Bellot and Lindsey Lander had
spoke to the. Association about
providing water in Jena. Lander, at the
Board of County Commissioners
approval suggested to lets move
forward with this project now.
The discussion was that


Steinhatchee Water will provide water
and sewer in Jena. However, this will
put a water and sewage plant on the
Dixie County side of the County line
in the future. The agreements in the
contract will consist of the following;
1. Dixie County will appoint a
Commissioner to sit on the
Steinhatchee Water Board.
However, the only problem with
this is that the Steinhatchee Water
Board does not have the power to put
our representative on their Board
permanently at this time.
2. Our designee will have a vote.
3. Dixie County may resign from
the Water Project with a 12 month
leave notice.
4. All the pipes on the Dixie
County side will go to the Dixie
County Board of County
Commissioners.


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

Sandy said the city would allow
them to hook up to the water supply at
their cost. Sandy stated that anything
that they had, the city could put a tax
on.
Arthur Bellot proposed the
question would the city provide
utilities.
Commissioner Hays asked when
the last time that Sandy was before the
city was.
Sandy's response was
approximately five or six months ago.
Sandy said that she just wanted to
approach the Board of County
Commissioners with her ideas since
she was on county property. She
stated that she would be approaching
the city the same way that she had
approached the county.
MR. AND MRS. MARSHAL
THOMAN:.
Mr. and .Mrs. Marshall Thoman
were staying at Hinton Landing
unaware that there was no camping
allowed at this park. They stated that
when they found out about this rule,
that they tried to flag a Deputy Sheriff
down to speak with them about the
matter. The Thomans' said that since
they had been staying at the park that
they had been cleaning the restrooms
and picking up trying to keep the park
clean. They addressed the Board about
staying at the park and becoming the
care takers. In return, the only thing
that was asked of the Board was that
their utilities be paid for their services.
The Board approved the request.

Board a Bellsouth Plan. They want to
go down rock roads with their lines.

needed a reciprocal ordinance. FWC
stated that there was a piece of

urged to send a letter to Gilchrist to get
their approval for the Zone as well.
Also, Dixie may be responsible for the


signs going on the river.
E) Mr. Bellot informed the Board
that Paul Ridaught had looked at the
guard rails on Eight Mile Creek,

or subtracting everyone's requests.

started so that the trimming of the
budget could be done.
After discussion the Board agreed
to have the first Budget Workshop on
August 3, 2006. The Workshop will
follow the Regular Board Meeting at
10:00 AM.
H) Mr. Bellot said that the
courthouse renovation was coming
along very smoothly. The floor was
being put down, and the platform for
the new board room was being built.
The renovations are down to the fine
tuning and the Electricians will be in

Mr. Bellot asked the Board if

There will be a riser put in front of the
Board table for the names and
underneath will be furnished with
electric and sound. The Board
responded with a unanimous yes.
Chad Reed and Arthur Bellot made the
comment that their opinion was that
the computer monitors would be an
asset.
I) Mr. Bellot asked the Board's
wishes on the purchase of a new
excavator. Commissioner Lamb stated
that he had done some research on the
two quotes that Bellot had previously
presented and his opinion was that it
would be foolish to not get the John
Deere model with the 5 year 7500 hour
warranty for the powertrain and
hydrolics.
Bellot added to the Board that for
what was quoted on the machines that
this would definitely be the best
machine and was the least expensive.

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

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

for a decision like this. It was noted
that only the county property would be

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.

adjacent to Yellowjacket and in fact
boat ramp parking was partially on his
property now and wanted to know if

Commissioner Driggers stated that

needed to be cleared up as soon as
possible. Commissioner Driggers

Ms. Cindy Dey handed out a
printout of the slide show for everyone
to look at while Mr. Bellot explained.
Mr. Bellot went over the power
point handout which covered the
Budget Changes that needed to be
made and had all ready been made at
the Boards request.
Mr. Bellot read to the Board a
memo that had been received from
Sheila Brown, Clerk of Horseshoe'
Beach on her understanding of the
EMS Budget. In reference to the CRA.
Mr. Bellot made the statement that
it was unfortunate that there are some
things that all of us wanted to see
happen that will have to be cut from
the budget in order to balance.
The changes that were made to the
budget since ,the last workshop are as
follows:
1. Horseshoe CRA added
$400,000
2. Reduced Sheriff's Request
3. Courthouse Renovation
4. Probation Building, Took out

The first thing that was discussed
was the Jail Payoff that had been "'
requested in the Budget.
Commissioner Valentine asked
Mr. Bellot if that Jail Payoff amount
could be cut in half in order to balance
Mr. Bellot responded with a no,
and went on to explain that most of the
money used to pay off the jail was
pledged money and could not be used
for anything other than that. He, also
made the statement that with paying
off the Jail this year; it will save the
County approximately $150,000 to
$160,000 in interest.
Commissioner Lamb proposed the
question that if a short term loan was
made to payoff the jail, will this save
money in the long run?
Mr. Bellot again responded with a
no and explained that a short term loan
would have a higher interest rate on it-
than the Jail loan and it will end up
being about the same in the long run. ,
Ms. Cindy Dey presented to the
board the number from the budgets
that were submitted by department
heads.
Tax Collector 32,074 This is a
17,000 increase
Property Appraiser 62,000
Increase
Clerk of Court 21,184 This is
a decrease
Supervisor of Elections 38,394 -
This is an increase
Sheriff- 1,484,000 This was an
increase
*ALL FIGURES SHOWN ARE
APROXIMATIONS*
There was discussion concerning
the Supervisor of Elections requested
increases without new employee
additions. Cindy Dey explained the
increases to the Board as she had
understood them to be.
Mr. Bellot also continued to
explain the revised budget from the
Supervisor of Elections. He stated to
the Board that a lot of the grants from
years prior cannot be assumed from
one year to the next because you never
know if you are going to receive the


grants again the next year.
Commissioner Hays made the
suggestion to cut the Jail Payoff and
the Park Maintenance out of the yearly
budget to be closer to being balanced.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
also thought that the department heads
needed to all take a percentage cut on
their presented budgets. That way all
of the departments could be cut and it
would be fairer.
Commissioner Hays stated that
there needed to be a comparison
between the budget from last year and
the budget from this year. There needs
to be a percentage of increase shown
so that it will help the board to better
make their decisions on the budget
cuts that need to be made.
Cindy Dey stated that the reserves
from the Clerk's budget last year were
never used and they can be used for
this year. That would help in the
cutting process.


In discussion it was stated that the
Supervisor of Elections had a 35,396
dollar increase in salaries for this year
in their budget.
If the Board decided to take out of
the budget the following;
Reduce Sheriffs budget
increase to 450,000 (this includes a
new work squad)
One Dump Truck
One Roll Off Truck
The Clerk's 30,000 dollar
Reserves
The Jail Payoff
Then the budget will only be out
$5,000.
County Coordinator Arthur Bellot
stated that there was a secretary
position at his office that he didn't
foresee being filled in the near future
that the $5,000 could be taken from,
therefore creating a balanced budget.
Commissioner Chairman asked if
everyone was agreed on the cuts and
the new budget. There was no dispute.
ADJOURN:
The Meeting was adjourned at
11:30 AM.

started to feed him for 3 days. He
would shy away when I put the
food down and the look on his
face showed emptiness and
his eyes told a story of sadness. He
disappeared and Mr. Emenecker
-saw and fed him near Gay Rd.
Days later he returned to Lafayette
Center. About a week later passed
before Mr. Emenecker saw him in
the middle of the road in front of
Bell Medical Ctr. A truck slowed
down to avoid hitting him but a
car ran into him. There was thump
and then a yipe, he was no where
to be found. If you have him
please give him a good home or if
he died please let us know so
when we travel the roads he did
we will no longer have to look for
him or wonder if he made it to his
final home.
Many times I questioned his
drive and determination to reach a
destination known only to him.
We have a new fund raiser.
Do you have any empty ink
cartridges? Your cartridges can be
deposited in a small container
attached to the aluminum can
barrels at Bell Jiffy and

Ronnie Rhodes (left) and John Sanders (right), retired from the Division of Forestry last month and plan on
using the fishing rods and tackle boxes given to them by their co-workers.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Gone Fishing...that is what retired Forest Rangers Ronnie Rhodes and John Sanders will be
spending their days of leisure doing. The two veteran Forest Rangers were given a retirement dinner
on September 22nd by their co-workers at the Earl Peterson Forestry Station in Cross City.
Ronnie, who served 25 years with the Division of Forestry (DOF) lives in Steinhatchee, where
we know the fishing, is good; while John, who served 26 years with the DOF and lives in the First
District, knows the fishing is good in the Suwannee River.
Both men always had worked at the Cross City Station. They have seen many changes over the
years and have helped "break-in" many a new Ranger.
Co-workers were given an opportunity to share their memories of working with Ronnie and
John. They picked and in some cases tattled, but it was all in good fun, showing the utmost respect
for two of their own.
It was noted that when you are put in life threatening situations, such as Ronnie and John had
been in; that you always want someone you can trust to watch your back. Without exception, they
are two such Forest Rangers.
Their skills will be missed, as will their presence at the station.
We thank them both for their years of service to our community and wish them all the best in
their retirements.

County Chamber Coalition, which consists of: (Bronson, Cedar
Key, Chiefland, Dixie, Fanning Springs, Gilchrist and Williston

coordinating this daylong nature-based tourism conference. Nearly
100 people came together sharing insights about networking with
others and how to improve customer service.
The morning session speakers addressed the topic of "Show
Me The Money!" where participants learned how to maximize
their business through networking with unexpected partners. The
second half of the day involved the topic of "How To Grow Your
Business" with the emphasis on how to improve customer
service/hospitality as well provided many helpful resources and
links.
- A free barbecue 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.

would like to thank the following for months of synchronized
efforts to help make this conference a reality: Maureen Gentry,

Levy County
Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, September 28 at
the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Several quilt tops
were brought in and will be for
sale. We also have another
small house donated; we still
don't know what we will do
with it. Quilting will go on
each week and we hope to
have them finished by Quilt
Show Time.
We were honored to have
Sheriff Johnny Smith,
Chiefland Chief of Police
Robert Douglas, Lt. Jenny
Anderson, Chiefland Police
Wyatt & Lt. Scott Anderson,
and Levy County Sheriff
Department to have lunch with
us. We met them at Law
appreciation night and they
were promised Chicken and
Dumplings. It's great to know
we have these men to keep us
safe; they do a job that puts
their lives on the line
everyday. We say thank you
for a great job and we know
they will keep it up.
Jarrod and ten boys were
out Tuesday, got the yard
looking great, they cleaned
flowerbeds, trimmed roses, and
so much more. It's great to
teach some of these boys who
have never done much in a
yard and see what a wonderful.
job they do.
Lunch was a job of
deciding what to eat. Chicken
& dumplings, potato & corn
fritters, cheese & Mac, four
kinds of potato salad, chicken
salad, cole slaw, beans, pecan
pie, pumpkin pie, lemon cake,
persimmons and so much
more.

Pictured left are (l-r) Marvin Hunt, Bea Gregory and Ben Barber.
Pictured above is a close up of the tiny grave, adorned by a beautiful
headstone designed by Ben.
By Terri Langjbrd Staff Writer
Several months ago, Bea Gregory enlisted the help of the
Advocate in finding the name of an unmarked child's' grave at the
Cross City Cemetery. Bea's efforts would prove to be fruitless,
with no one coming forward with any information on the possible
identity of the child. However, Bea could not just give up, so she
purchased a headstone and named the tiny soul that laid to rest
there, "Dixie's Little Angel".
Bea called Ben Barber of Dixie Monuments and made
arrangements to have the headstone made and several weeks ago,
Bea, Ben and Bea's neighbor, Marvin Hunt, met at the gravesite
and the headstone was installed. The fine folks at Personal Touch
Florist donated a beautiful arrangement of flowers to adorn the
grave.
Bea continues to go to the Cross City Cemetery each week to
visit her husband's grave and that of the small child that she
lovingly calls "Dixie's Little Angel".

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5. 2006


FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
sf a -Governor Bush Recognizes
The Dixie School District For
Rising Test Scores & Student
Achievement
w ..- Governor Bush sent letters of congratulations to the Dixie
School District faculty, students, and school community for being
honored as one of the top 50 high school and middle schools in the
State of Florida that has made the most year-to-year progress in
Superintendent school grades. This recognition is for schools that had the highest
Dennis W. Bennett increase in the total points a school received on the school grading
criteria for the 2005-2006 academic year over the previous year.
The Governor wanted to recognize the remarkable job our staff has done in helping our students
improve their core academic skills and increasing student achievement. He stated that "It is quite an
accomplishment and something the Dixie administration, teachers, students and parents can be proud
of." The Governor continued to say, "I applaud you and your staff of excellent educators for your
outstanding work. By continuing to set high standards, you provide students the support they need
to exceed expectations."
Governor Bush and Education Commissioner Winn thanked our staff for their dedication and
they wanted to celebrate with the students and community our successes.
We would like to encourage the parents and community to join us as we congratulate our
students and staff for having a very successful 2005-2006 school year. We have seen amazing
student growth and performance as our district moved to the status of being classified a "B" district
based on the progress made through student achievement on the Sunshine State Standards.
This year will be a challenge because the difficulty of the standards will increase, but we feel


confident and up to the task as
year.


American
Legion News
For God and Country we
associate ourselves together for
the following purposes: To
uphold and defend the
Constitution of the United States
of America; to maintain law and
order; to foster and perpetuate a
one hundred percent
Americanism... These words
begin the Preamble to the
American Legion Constitution and
are recited at the beginning of
most every Legion meeting. One
of the ways we can continue to
uphold and defend our Nation's
Constitution, maintain law and
order, and foster Americanism, is
to VOTE. It is a duty, and our
service to our Nation in the Armed
Forces insured the right to vote for
ALL Americans. Our government
and it's officers are answerable to
the People, through the voting
booth, but only if we, the People,
use it. Study the candidates
running for election and vote for
those of your choice, but VOTE!
At the American Legion
National Convention in Salt Lake
City this last August, it was
decided to raise the yearly dues at
the National level. The dues went
up $4.50 per year, as of January,
2007. Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91
in Trenton will raise their dues to
30.00 per year in January to
cover the increase at the
Department level. If you renew
before December 31, 2006, the
dues would only be $25.00 for the
next year.
American Legion Auxiliary
Unit 91 meets on Thursday,
October 12, at 7:00 PM, right
after the Post 91 Legion Family
Executive Committee meets at
6:00 PM at the Post Home on US-
129 five miles north of Trenton.
All members are encouraged to
attend and participate.
S'.-The Post 91 Legion Family
(Auxiliary Unit 91, SAL Squadron
91 and Post 91) invite you
(o a Fifties and Sixties Sock Hop
at-;the Post Home on Saturday,
October 14, beginning at 6:30 PM.
Refreshments will be available. A
$5.00 donation cover charge is
requested to cover the
refreshments such as iced tea,
lemonade, coffee and snack
foods. Root beer floats will be
available for an extra fee. This is
a fund raiser for the programs for
the Auxiliary and the Post 91
programs, so come out and help
out. Enjoy some 50s and 60s
music, dance if you want to, visit
with friends and just enjoy the
evening. Remember, Post 91 is a
No Smoking Post. There are
smoking areas outside.
If you know of a Legion
family in need, contact the Post or
Auxiliary Chaplain to let them
know of that need. The Chaplain
will, in turn, notify those
necessary to help with the need.
The same goes for any that are
sick or in the hospital. Watch over
your Legion family.
Remember our Armed Forces
alt around this world in your
thoughts and prayers each day,
and here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows,
and the families of those called to
active duty, helping out however
and whenever you can.
For God and Country, Wayne
Gravely, American Legion Post
