Sheriff's Department


Recovers $20,000


In Stolen Property
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Sheriff's Department arrested two juveniles and two adults on theft and
burglary charges in the past three weeks. During the arrests, they were able to recover approximately
$20,000 in stolen property and stated that there is still another $10,000 to $12,000 in property still
unaccounted for in what they believe to be a large
burglary ring.
According to reports filed by DSO investigators,
the burglaries have mainly taken place in the Old
Town area during the month of September. Items I
stolen have ranged from beer and hard liquor, chain
saws, cookers and guns, to 4-wheelers.
The two juveniles were arrested on September ,
18th, with both being charged with burglary of a
residence and theft. The two male youths were
turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
The report noted that during the burglaries,
allegedly by the juveniles, damage to one of the
structures was caused when a cement block was
thrown into a glass door while at another residence; a
shed was pealed open in order to gain entry. One
victim even had their power turned off, but
fortunately they came home before they lost any
food in their freezer or refrigerator.wr .
On October 3, 2006, two additional arrests were '
made. Old Town residents, James Ammons and
Robie Collins were connected to several burglaries
and can also be connected to those burglaries
involving the two juveniles arrested last month.
While serving a warrant for the arrest of the
adults, investigators found numerous makes and
models of guns, trolling motors, a TV and DVD
player. Later, deputies would be led to several hand
guns which had been wrapped in garbage bags and Pictured top to bottom are burglary suspects
buried. Robie Collins and James Ammonds.
Both Ammons and Collins were arrested and charged with grand theft, burglary, contributing to
minors, and dealing in stolen property. Additionally, Ammons was charged with possession of
firearm by a convicted felon.
Both Ammons and Collins remain in the Dixie County Jail. Bond was originally set at $100,000
each, but was reduced to $55,000 for-Ammbn and $50,000 for Collins.
Investigators are still actively working to find the other property that has been reported stolen.

Letter To The

Editor
Dixie County Schools
ROCK.!!
Hi, my name is Kelscy
Lander. I have attended the
Dixie County School system
my whole life. I am in the 5'h
grade and I am 10 years old.
There is only one thing to say
about my school, it is
wonderful!
Everyone has told me to do
my best in life, all my teachers
have been so wonderful! Last
year I made a 4.5 on math and
5.0 perfect on reading! This
year I'm reading on a ninth
grade level. I know a lot of
other people in my grade that
are also doing just as well as I
am. Someday I hope to
become a doctor. All my
teachers have supported that.
So whoever thinks that our
school system is a failure...it is
just their loss.

Letter To The
Editor
Dear Editor,
I would like to take this
opportunity to express my
appreciation of the beautiful
bells that ring from the
Methodist Church here in
town.
My children and I often
refer to those bells as
"Mammy's Bells" because
everyone who knew Mammy
knew she loved her Methodist
Church Choir Family as much
as her own family. The bells
serve as a reminder that our
Mammy knew Jesus Christ as
her Lord and Savior and she
now sings in that Heavenly
Choir where they ring those
Golden Bells.
So often we get caught up
in the fast lane of life until we
forget to slow down and enjoy
the simple .things God has
given us. Let me encourage
those of you who live in town
to make time to listen to the
bells. They are truly a
blessing!

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2006


Comn ission Highlights
By Terri Lang/ford Staff Writer
The Dixie County Board of' County Commissioners met on
October 5, 2006 for their regular 10:00 a.m. meeting. Several
items of interest were on the agenda, including a request from the
Town of Horseshoe Beach for the transfer of county assets to the
Town and the signing of an agreement between the County and the
Steinhatchee Water Association that will aide in future water and
sewer projects.
Building and Zoning Inspector, Jack Spivey, presented his
monthly report to the Board. For the month of September, 2006,
his office collected and deposited in the Dixie County General
Fund, Impact Fee Account, and Transportation Trust Fund,
$31,660.04. This brought the year-to-date total to $443,328.19. It
was noted that $21,000.00 was monies collected in impact fees for
the month of September and $7,975.04 in building permit fees.
Chad Reed, Director of Emergency Services, also handed in his
monthly and yearly reports. Reed noted that during the month of
September the EMS served 241 patients, traveling 16,776 miles,
and used 1908.9 gallons of fuel. Year-to-date, EMS handled 3,417
patients, traveling 266,057 miles, using 25,647.57 gallons of fuel.
Reed also reported that the Non-Emergency Transport handled 816
patients in the 2005-2006 Fiscal Year.
- Talmadge Bennett, Councilman of Horseshoe Beach came
before the Board and asked that they, the Commission, act on
transferring county assets that lie within the city limits, to the
Town of Horseshoe Beach. Those assets would include the canals,
Horseshoe Beach Park and Boat Ramp and one street. They also
asked the County to provide unlimited use of the spoil site which
they will need for future dredging projects. The County would
keep CR 351 and the post office building.
The Commissioners agreed that the transfer would benefit both
the Town and the County; however, there is a possible snag in the
transfer of the park. Originally, the land that the park and boat
ramp sits on was donated by the Douglas and Butler Families. The
deed states that the donated land must stay a park and boat ramp or
revert back to the families. The county's attorney, Lindsey Lander
will be looking into the matter and come back with clarification of
the deed at the next meeting.
Bennett noted that if the Town should be fortunate enough to
get the park land, they plan on a number of renovations and
improvements. He also stated that the boat ramp would remain
open to the public.
Rex Dunn, Manager of the Steinhatchee Water Association
canie before the Board with an update on their Annual Board
Meeting as well as a request to expedite the signing of a resolution
that will give the SWA the go-ahead to seek funding on behalf of
the county for water and sewer projects for Dixie County.
This resolution gives the County access to SWA engineers,
grant writers and attorney; saving taxpayers money during large
projects such as the one being looked at for the Rocky Creek area.
The County does not have to agree to any grants that may be found
during the SWA search for funding. All grants and the money
a-ssociated with the grants would be under the control of Dixie
County. SWA would only manage the projects as they were
accepted by the County.
Several questions arose from the public concerning present
rules that require new development to hook up to the SWA
wastewater system. Currently single-family dwellings can opt out
of the hook up. New development includes the building of new
structures that require a power pole permit, whether the land is
bought before the agreement was signed with SWA and the
County. Cost to hook up to the wastewater system is $6,500. The
wastewater service is projected to be available in May of 2007 for
the Jena area.
The next Commission ,meeting. will., be held on Thursday,
October 19th, beginning at 6:00 PM.
I have found the best way to give advice to your chil-
dren is to find out what they want and then advise
them to do it.
-Harry S. Truman

The Word Made

Flesh ::
Mark, Number; & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say in this time of
spiritual confusion, we must
remember, we are not looking at
one figure, Six, but at three figure
Sixes. Yet, the Holy Scriptures
teach that Three here is called a
number. There could have been
six Sixes or seven Sixes and still
be called a number.
Why can't we have more than
three Sixes? Because the figure
Three has to fill its part in this day
of spiritual vision, along with the
figures six and seven. Three has to
play its part in time, just as well as
the figure Seven has to play its
part in the working of time. For
instance, each day had its part to
play in the time God created it for.
Creation was completed in the
Six days it took to create it.
Everything was good and very
good. I, the son of man, say if you
can receive it, it is the same with
God's figures today. God's figures
have a spiritual meaning, and they
fit into His ordinance of the
Second Coming of the Lord Jesus
Christ. Each figure Six when it is
understood, in its context of time-
will prove what the Mark of the
Beast is. The figure Three has its
place through the scriptures.
It has its meaning. The
working of these- figures and the
part they play is not seen as being
necessary in the Second Coming
of Christ. It is taken for granted
that they are in the Bible, and they
apply to the natural and that is it.
The ordinary person of today does
not know that Bible arithmetic has
its place in spiritual vision, as well
as in the natural creation.
I, the son of man, say this is
why the real Mark of the Beast is
hidden from the natural carnal
mind of today. This is something
that the church has not sought
after, because it is given by the
Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ in
the second time of His coming.
Today is the day of His
coming. The church has not
considered to know these things.
Look at Rev. 13:18, the scripture
says, "let him that hath
understanding Count The Number
of the Beast: for it is the Number
of a Man; and his Number is Six
hundred threescore and six."
Three sixes this is usually
what is called the Mark of the
Beast 6-6-6. Almost every
preacher you hear ministering
calls the 6-6-6. the Mark. I, the
son of man, say this is not the
Mark of the Beast. This is the
number of the beast, which you
find in Revelation 13- are there
three number to consider instead
of one?
Continued next week.

Faith Baptist Church News
What a wonderful, cool, crisp morning to be in God's House
today. Bro. Jackie did his usual good job in the pulpit delivering
the messages God had laid on his heart and the special music was
good as usual. The Crenshaws sang in the morning service and
Heather Fore in the evening service.
The Spirit was strong and moving among us. Our crowd was
somewhat small due to the folks who were traveling and also many
of our congregation had been in the hospital this past week and
unable to attend today. We want to thank God for the ones He had
healed and who were able to be back with us today. What a mighty
?.. God we serve.
We have a very busy week planned. Faith will be hosted the
[Associational meeting Monday night 10-09-06. Then on Tuesday
:night the 10th we all went to Pickett Lake as they were hosting that
night. Wednesday night the 11th was our regular monthly business
meeting at Faith. Mark your calendars and attend as much of this
as you can. God will bless you for it.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, bereaved, less
fortunate and especially the lost. Invite someone to Sunday school
and Church with you next week. Let the world know you are a
K Christian and may they see Jesus in you. Be sure you make it to
our business meeting on Wednesday night. As a member at Faith,
it's our duty to be there and take care of God's business. Until we
meet again, we'll be praying for you and looking for you.

Trunk-N-Treat To Be Held
At Chiefland UMC
Looking for a safe alternative to trick-or-treating? Not getting
excited about going door-to-door for hours while your young
goblin tries to fill up a candy sack? Want to see something
different?
The First United Methodist Church of Chiefland, right on US
19, is hosting its 2nd annual Trunk-N-Treat. Everyone is invited
whether bringing children to go from trunk-to-trunk or bring your
decorated trunk and give out candy. Last year there were about 26
vehicles (and drivers) who decorated for the occasion and nearly
1,000 kids came through for a visit and to get their bags filled with
candy.
There will be a hay ride and sodas and baked goods will be for
sale for the parents wanting to wait on the side lines. Last year
there were kids from Bronson, Trenton, Cross City, as well as,
Chiefland.
We ask that vehicles participating arrive and set up by 6 pm.
The actual event will be open to the kids at 6:30 pm and run until
8:30 pm. Look for the large Frankenstein head for the entrance.
There will also be a Pumpkin Patch in the field, so come a couple
weeks earlier and purchase your pumpkins.
Any questions please call Roger (Youth Specialist) or Michele
Bell (Children's Coordinator) at (352) 490-8879.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"Wait till the water return"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say once our
gathering was unto the world, with its filth, its lust and self-seeking. But as
He looses us drawing upward we find there is a new gathering in spirit to
form the beautiful cloud of heaven, henceforth to be born aloft and moved
:by the wind (spirit) whither so ever He wills. Thank God in the fullness of
;time He shall gather together in one all things in Christ.
I, the Day of the Lord, say beloved friend, don't ever look upon a
stagnant pool, and say that is the end. Don't ever look upon a life that is
:polluted with sin, and say, that is the end. When water is poured out on the
:ground, mixed with the dirt, absorbed into the earth don't say, that is the
:end. Gods hath devised means and He can vaporize lift that water up out
'of the earth and receive it pure again.
I, the Day of the Lord, say until the end returns to the beginning, we
:find the cycle is not complete. All that came forth out of Him shall return
'back into Him, He hath decreed it. What God works in us as individuals,
He also shall works in all the earth, reconciling the world unto Himself.
I, the Day of the Lord, say God is going to shake both heaven and
earth, until the elements shall be loosened, dissolved, melt with prevent
:heat, not to destroy, but to restore. The judgments of God shall rock our
globe but the Son of Love shall draw all unto Himself. We shudder at the
extent chaos and corruption have engulfed mankind and all of man's
attempt at reforms and "clean-up campaigns" have accomplished little.
I, the Day of the Lord, say great revivals are held with few results.
And while we have no condemnation for any of these efforts, but are
'thankful for whatever is gleaned in the results, yet we are aware of the fact
only God's Sovereign Intervention can bring true restoration. It brings
forth praise from the depth of our hearts as we consider that God hath
devised the means and now we turn our eyes to look upward and wait till
the waters return. I, the Day of the Lord, say I see the rising of a little
cloud, perhaps only the size of a man's hand, but the vapors are ascending
and a tremendous spiritual movements are soon to be realized.
To God be all glory and praise.

In Loving Memory
Merle C. Lord
8-29-1924- 10-12-2005
As I sit here today I realize that its been a
year. There is so much that has happened this
year that you have missed. There are times ':-
that I drive by your road thinking that I am
going to stop in for a minute to see if you
need something from the store, coming to get
you cause no one else will go to Walmart .
with me, or just to tell you something that -
came to mind as I was going by, only for Merle C. Lord
reality to hit that you are not there. You
meant and still mean the ENTIRE world to me. Just wished that
I would have had a warning, that way I could have said and stayed
with you those last couple of days. I thank you for waiting until I
got there to let go. That meant so much; I'm so glad that I got to
tell you that I loved you and would miss you so so much. I now
have learned alot of things since the day of that funeral NEVER
TAKE YOUR FAMILY FOR GRANTED, always remembered
you telling me that "One day granny wont be here to take care of
ya" Just never thought day would never come especially so soon. I
know that you are in heaven watching over Carson and I, and soon
to be Brennan ,as for we were your pick. Denny and I got married
and granny Jackie had to light a candle to honor you instead of you
lighting the one in honor of papa that was really hard especially for
nanny Jackie. I try to show Carson pictures of you so that he
knows who you are and how special you were to me and him.
There are times that I look at your picture and look at Carson and I
see alot of you in him. There are so many things he does that you
use to do as in throwing your leg over the chair arm. I think that
God gave me Carson and Denny because he knew how hard it
would be for me to loose you and not have a shoulder to cry on
when NO ONE else would listen. You believed in me no matter
what the circumstances were. No one can ever take your place. I
know that there could not have been a soul on this earth that could
have been more ready to meet Jesus then you. It has taken me right
at a week now to actually sit and write this, Guess I just still don't
want to let go, I believe this has to be the hardest thing in the entire
world to do. So in closing I just wanted to say even though its been
a FULL year I still miss you as it was yesterday, I know that you
have a full time job watching all us, young-ins and grand-kids and
of course catching up for lost times with papa but I still love you
and miss you. I'll see you one day I can promise you that! Oh yea
Wayne says he misses Grammie Lord to.
WE LOVE YOU GRANNY!

Springhouse Quilter's News


Springhouse Quilters will be meeting again this week for their
regular monthly business meeting. The year is fast coming to a
close and new officers will be elected and programs developed for
the coming year. The year just passes much too fast to be able to
get all projects completed before the year ends. With a change in
weather, we are expecting to begin to see some of our northern
friends returning. It will be very interesting to see just what they
finished during the summer months.
Glorida Sutton will be presenting a workshop on October 24
on a Victorian Teddy Bear. This project will be interesting and
members are asked to sign up for the project in time for Gloria to
properly plan for the workshop materials.
The Stephen Foster Quilt Show at White Springs will be
October 20 thru 22. Springhouse members will be participating
in the show. The public is invited. There is a small gate fee to
get into the park. This is a wonderful time to see some of the
most interesting "art" quilting in the area. Quilters from Alachua,
Columbia, Suwannee, Gilchrist and other nearby counties will
display some of their creative work at the show.
For more information on Springhouse Quilters, please contact
Anna Gilliam, 463-7922 or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

JV Bears End Season 3 and 3


A.J. Land is off and running to score a touchdown for the Bears.


By John Kelley
The Bears made
homecoming a spectacular
success on Friday night as they
beat the Hamilton County
Trojans 24-21. Under a full
Dixie moon, the Bears scored
early and without pressure on
the first drive of the game.
Glendon Osteen handed the
ball to Rodney Scott on a two-
yard push into the end zone for
six points as the clock read
10:19 in the first quarter.
Micah Cassidy added the extra
point and the Bears had seven
points on the board. A.J. Land
and the defensive team forced
a fumble on the sixth play of
the Trojan possession, which
was recovered by Anthony
Smith for Dixie County.
Six plays later the Bears
scored again as Cassidy kicked
a 30-yard field goal to put the
Bears up 10-0. At the end of
the first quarter the Trojans
slipped in and scored against
the Bears to make the score
10-7. The Bears ended the first
quarter with possession of the
ball.
Second quarter action saw
Rodney Scott achieve over
1000 yards in rushing for the
season. Each team's defense
stood tall until the final
seconds of the half when
Kameron Keen, as
quarterback, hit A.J. Land for a
58-yard pass that resulted in a
touchdown for the Bears.
Cassidy added the extra point
and the Bears led at halftime,
17-7.
The second half got off to
a good start when Bud Wessels
intercepted a pass from the
Trojans, but were unable to
._produce positive results and
iiad to punt the ball. On their
:ngxt possession the Bears ran
the ball extensively, relying on
^Terrence George and Rodney
:Scot. In four .plays, Scott
..scored again and Cassidy
fidded the extra point and the
SBea-. re able to pull away
from theI lijans 24-7.
In the i.wst quarter of the
-.game the Trt ians rallied and
tried to come `'ack on a pass
interception. 'the Trojans
returned the ball approximately
99 yards to score ai' reduce
-Dixie's lead, 24-13. They
missed their extra 1 ',int.
attempt. The Bears were face
with other problems in the
fourth quarter as the Trojans
-recovered a fumble, but the
Big Bear defense, including
Wessels, Cory Conlin and John
Corbin were able to stop the
Hamilton County offense from
any significant gains. On their
next possession (Bears) were


forced to punt and allowed the
Trojans to score again on a
long pass play, making the
two-point conversion.
On the ensuing kick-off,
the Trojans successfully
executed an on-side kick and
recovered the football. But the
ball failed to travel the
required ten yards before being
recovered, so the Trojans were
penalized and had to kick-off
again. Their second on-side
kick attempt proved futile, as
Homecoming King, A.J. Land
recovered the football for the
Bears and the clock ran out to
preserve the 24-21 victory.
Coach Wilkerson was as
proud of the team as was the
father (John Kelley) of the
Homecoming Queen. He told
the team that no one ever
thought that they would be 7-0
at this point in the season.
"This week we have got to step
it up, if Taylor down here and
upsets us, 7-0 is for naught
gentlemen. We got better from
last week to this week. We
have got to keep getting better
every week until we bear
Madison and win the district."

PAT 1


By John Kelley
The JV football team lost a hard fought
game against a larger team from PK Young
on Wednesday at home. Cord Hart for the
Bears went over 80 yards during the first half
to answer a Blue Wave touchdown.

With 3:55 in the quarter Darrel Connel
recovered an onside kick to set the Bears up
for another score. Hart as quarterback on a
QB keeper runs it in to make the score 12-6.
PK Young in four plays answers those points
and pulls ahead 14-12.


To make things worse the Wave scored
in the first seconds of the second quarter
pushing the score 20-12. The JV team held
the Wave through the half, but in the middle
of the third quarter they scored again
increasing their lead 27-12. By the end of the
game the Bears posted 20 points but could not
overcome the Wave, who took home the win
33-20. Coach Hope told the team that he was
still proud of them for not giving up and
playing hard all season. Good job JV, next
year will be better. GO BEARS!


Youth Football League Action
The Youth League Bears played a tough game Saturday against the Branford Patriots losing in
overtime. The first half of the game saw Houston Rhodes and Dylan Reed as stand outs for the
Bears. Cody Mitchell turned in an 80-yard sprint for a touchdown. The score was tied 8-8 at the end
of the game sending it into overtime.
The Bears had possession first but the Patriots held the Bears scoreless. The Patriots on their
possession scored first thus ending the game. After the game the coaches all agreed that the team has
shown improvement every week. Coach Hope told the boys "they outplayed them on the field and
that next week we will be even better." GO BEARS!

Tradesman, contractors,
and homeowners will marvel
over a new invention created
by Mount Dora, Florida
resident Jason Henson.
Designed to make a number of
jobs easier, the Bucket
Platform's uses are wide and
varied.
This ingenious new product
is ideal for mixing a number of
items such as grout, plaster,
paint, and other materials. It is
safe and stable, making it very
practical and convenient to
own. The Bucket Platform
saves users time since its
features and design allow for
less mess and quick clean up.
Additionally, it is made of
durable, yet lightweight
material that makes it easy to
transport.
This original idea is now
being made available for
licensing to manufacturers
interested in new product
development, especially in the
home improvement industry.
Henson is hoping to have the
Bucket Platform in full
production and available to the
public within the very near
future.
Additional information
about the Bucket Platform can
be obtained by contacting the
Publicity/Press Department of
Invention Technologies, Inc. at

Request for Release of Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions

TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:

funded by a Florida Small Cities Community Development Block Grant.

The intent of this project is to improve the quality of water for the Town of Cross City. To this end, the
Cross City Council propose a design which will focus on the removal of disinfectants byproduct (DBP)
precursors, namely total organic carbon (TOC). The scope of this project shall include the design,
permitting, and construction of a granular activated carbon (GAC) system for the removal of TOC to
bring the Town=s water treatment plant into compliance with local and state regulations. The project
will benefit a city-wide service area encompassing 970 households benefitting 2521 people where 2,184
Low to Moderate Income residents live and 393 people who have incomes below HUD=s Very Low
Income threshold.
1. An environmental review of the project has been conducted in accordance with 24 CFR 58, and
it has been determined that the activities will have no significant impact on the environment.
Therefore, an Environment Impact Statement (EIS), as described in the National Environmental
Policy Act, will not be prepared. No further environmental review of the project will
be conducted.
An Environmental Review Record (ERR), which documents the environmental review of the
project, is on file at the Cross City Town Hall located at 99 NE 210 Avenue, Cross City FL 32628 and is
available for public examination. All interested parties are invited to submit written comments to the
attention of Cross City Mayor Kenneth Lee at 99 NE 210 Avenue (P.O. Box 417), Cross City FL 32628.

2. The project described above will be funded with Florida Small Cities Community Development
Block Grant funds from the State of Florida and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD), under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act. The Town Council
of Cross City is certifying to the State and to HUD that it, and its chief elected official, in her official
capacity, consent to accept the jurisdiction of the federal courts if an action is brought
to enforce responsibilities related to environmental reviews, decision making, and action; and
that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certification is that upon

will have satisfied their responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act. The Town Council
of Cross City anticipates that its Certification and Request for Release of
Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions will be submitted to the Department of

period before taking any action on the request. Objections will only be accepted by DCA if they
meet one of the following conditions:
(1) The certification was not executed by the Town of Cross City= environmental certifying
officer or another officer of the local government approved by DCA;
or
(2) The ERR indicates omission of a required decision, finding, or step
applicable to the environmental review process.
Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with 25 C.F.R. 58 within 15 days following
DCA=s receipt of the Request for Release of Funds. If you have comments or objections, submit them to
the Florida Department of Community Affairs, Small Cities CDBG Program, 2555 Shumard Oak

- ROBERT SHEETS. FLORIDA
'GOVERNMENT UTILITY
AUTHORITY:
Commissioner Lamb introduced
]Mr. Robert Sheets from Florida
-Government Utility Authority. Mr.
Sheets gave the Board a packet and a
folder that outlined the concepts of
(GUA. -Mr. Sheets stated that the GUA
3s an innovative home rule mechanism
and is governed by a locally-
appointed board. The participating
local governments have control over
the GUA but do not incur any liability
for debt or operations.
Mr. Sheets stated that the potential
motivations for the formation of a
Gi3UA include the transition mechanism
to public ownership, the sale of local


government utility to a GUA, and a
vehicle for regional consolidation of
public utility.
Mr. Sheets brought to attention the
MUA's mission. The mission includes
providing critical water and
wastewater utility services to its
customers, combines the benefits of
public ownership with private- sector
efficiency, and the conservation of
Water.
Mr. Sheets stated that GUA has
over 65,000 customers over-all which
enables the bargaining power to
purchase chemicals and supplies such
as that with no increase to its
customers. He also said that if Dixie
County implemented the GUA that
everyone would have access to these
utilities and access to all of their
resources. The customer may use all


or none of the services.
Mr. Sheets stated that he had
worked with the DEP for many years
and that they are far more willing to
give grant money to those who come
together as one entity. The GUA was
created because counties came
together and said, "We have a problem
and something needs to be done about
it." The GUA board has four members
and each member is a county
employee. It is a single entity board
concerning water, waste water, and
utility management.
Mr. Sheets stated that the GUA's
defense against rising prices is that
they get the job done quickly.
Mr. Sheets then asked for any
questions.
Commissioner Hays stated that he
had spoken with Kevin Grace, former
county manager from another area, and
one thing that the county has been
faced with is water and sewer in Jena.
He also asked what the buying power
for operations was without an increase
to constituents. He also stated that the
county was looking for a regional
approach.
Commissioner Hays continued
with a discussion on the long term
approach. It was said that the county
wants to be hands on in an operation of
this nature.
Mr. Sheets stated that they acquire
from investors by assuming
outstanding debts. GUA does not have
to own assets to be a custodian of these
assets.
Commissioner Hays stated that he
wanted to make the best decision to
protect the natural resources. He
wants to know how to Keep It Super
Simple and does not want to re-invent
the wheel.
Mr. Sheets responded with the
comment that he understood where
Commissioner Hays was coming from
that big was okay but not having
control was not.
Chairman Driggers asked about
entering an agreement without having
to be a part of the whole GUA.
Mr. Sheets responded with the
answerer that to be a member you can
be on the member list but you do not
have to be on the board if you choose
not to. The decision is strictly up to
the customer.
He explained that the interlocal
agreement says that you may choose to
just use the GUA for structural use
only.
Commissioner Hays asked what
kind of cost will Dixie County incur?
Mr. Sheets said that experts would
come in at GUA cost and to top it off
the GUA has a fixed fee instead of an
hourly fee. The GUA wants to
understand what the expectations of
the County are and want to give
useable tools to the county. He stated
that a work plan would be established.
Commissioner Hays' stated that
his biggest concerns were providing
water and sewer and protecting what
we have come to love in our county.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
can see things traveling at a rapid pace
and Dixie County is missing the boat
on concurrency issues and he wants to
get on board with something that will
be beneficial to the county.
Mr. Sheets expressed his thanks
for giving him the opportunity to come
and speak to the Board.
Commissioner Driggers asked if
there were any questions concerning
Mr. Sheets presentation.
A question arose from a lady in
the audience (name unannounced) as
to the growth in little towns such as
Old Town and wanted to know if the
utility advancement is for businesses
as well as residences?
Mr. Sheets response was a definite
yes.
The Board of County
Commissioners stated that they
thought there needed to be a workshop
on the utility issues. The date of the
workshop will be set at a later date.
SABLE BOLLING, DIXIE
COUNTY HEALTH
DEPARTMENT:
Mrs. Boiling expressed her thanks
towards the Board. Mrs. Boiling
requested that the Health Department
be paid the insurance funds from water
damage.
Commissioner Driggers asked if
she had put her request in a voucher.
She stated that she had indeed put
her request in a voucher.
Mrs. Boiling also asked the Board
to give her the FEMA money for their
building damages as soon as it is
received.
Commissioner Driggers stated to
Mrs. Boiling that when the money got
here that she would receive it.
MIKE CASSIDY, CITY
MANAGER:
Mr. Cassidy addressed the Board
first by saying that the City had a
meeting on July 26ih on annexing the
airport. There are many challenges
that will be faced when the annexation
arises however, he stated, there is a
need greater than the problem and the
City council is ready to work together
with the Board of County
Commissioners.
Commissioner Driggers stated to
Mr. Cassidy that the bid was
previously approved for the
installation of the taxi lanes to the t-
hangers at the airport.
Chairman Driggers also stated that
there had been a short delay in the
airport certification.
Arthur Bellot explained that there
was a change of personnel at the
airport and that a security plan was
needed from the airport operator and
that is currently being produced.
Mr. Cassidy stated that he wanted


to continue to be on the airport
committee.
Chairman Driggers said that he
had spoken to Palmer and he had
inquired about the changes to the lease
and said that Lindsey Lander is still
working on the lease.
Terry Barnes was also present to
discuss the matters at the airport. He
stated that he thought a lesson was to
be learned about miscommunication as
to who was to be in management at the
airport.
Chairman Driggers explained that
the airport is leased out and that the
leasers are the ones in the management
position.
Mr. Bames said that the lease
contract needed to outline this to
overcome doubts in the future.
Commissioner Hays asked


Lindsey Lander to look at the lease and
see what the best way to address the
management concerns was.
Lindsey Lander said that he would
take a look at the lease.
AL FAFARD:
Mr. Fafard approached the Board
and stated that he had five acres that
the county could dig limerock out of if
the need be. He stated that his only
wish was for the county to stay 25 or
30 feet from the property line.
Chairman Driggers stated that this
would be an option for consideration
and it will be further discussed among
the board members.
The Board directed Arthur Bellot
and Howard Reed to look into the
situations and proceed if warranted.
RHODA MOERING:
Mrs. Moering stated that the
DTRACK Jena Park was now
complete. They are just waiting on
water. She requested for five acres
that adjoined the park to be theirs as
well. This property that is being asked
for adjoins directly up to the Suwannee
River Water Management property.
Mrs. Moering said that she would
write a grant and put in a playground
and maybe some nature trails. She
said that she has people that live in an
RV that would like to stay at the Park
to keep up with maintenance and the
kitchen. She explained to the Board
that someone needed to be at the park
full time so that the kitchen could be
scheduled for use regularly.
Mrs. Moering informed the Board
that the septic sits behind the building
and would like for there to be another
system to be installed away from the
building for the RV to hook up.
Commissioner Lamb stated that a
new septic system would be costly and
difficult to get.
Mrs. Moering stated that she
would also like the Boards permission
to hold some carnivals there at the
TRACK Park.
Arthur Bellot said that insurance
will be an issue with a carnival to
come in. They will need to cover the
county as an additional insured to a
million dollar limit.
Mrs. Moering stated that all of the
carnivals had insurance.

Keen Cemetery seriously needed a
light due to the many counts of
vandalism that had taken place at the
cemetery. Commissioner Hays stated
that there is all ready a light pole there


and all it needs is a light.
The motion to put a light at Keen
cemetery was made by Commissioner
H-ays and was seconded by
Commissioner Land.
Commissioner Hays made a
response to an e-mail that he had
received previous to the meeting.
Commissioner Hays stated that for
those who are concerned about
Suwannee Water decisions. The
statement is as follows;
"I am a native of Dixie County,
was born and live in Dixie County and
will be buried in Dixie County. All of
the decisions that I make will be based
on what I think at heart and hat I know
is right for Dixie County."
Commissioner Hays introduced
Jimmy McCall as the representative of
Ocean Pond Mud Bog. The request
for the Mud Bog to operate on
Memorial Day and Labor Day ( 3 day
weekend ) has been made. Mr. McCall
stated that all of the proceeds from
these two mentioned days will go to
the Wheelin and Sportsmen Charity.
Commissioner Hays told Mr.
McCall that some research of the
Resolution would have to be done.
Mr. McCall stated that he understood
and that he was in no rush.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
thought the idea of the pond being
open these two extra days per year,.
was a good idea as long as the
proceeds go to charity.
Lindsey Lander stated that what
he had found was that statutes do not
reflect much on resolutions. He stated
that this does not fall under the
classification of use to be heard af a
public hearing.
The comment was made by the
Board that since Mr. McCall had
become involved with Ocean Pond
Mud Bog that there had been np
complaints and he is greatly
commended for his efforts.
Lindsey Lander stated that he
would need more time to research.
Mr. Lander told the Board that he
would give Mr. McCall a call and let
him know as soon as he found
something out.

Ruth Rains Middle School Takes Part In
Attempt To Break A World Record
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Recently Ruth Rains Middle School joined
200,00 other Florida middle school students in .
Florida's attempt to break the Guinness World "' iT1i' i '
RecordTM for the "Most People Reading Aloud r' i ., _
Simultaneously in Multiple Locations." This N
Aloud!., was overseen by the Just Read, Florida
office and was highly supported by Florida's ,
Commissioner of Education, John L. Winn
and Governor Jeb Bush.
According to Guinness World Records, the .
current record is, 155,528 students from 7373
schools throughout the United Kingdome who
read William Wordsworth's poem "Daffodils" RRMS Buccaneer aka Principal Beverly
on March 19, 2004. On Thursday, September Baumer, gives students a preview of what treasures
28, between 11-11:30, middle school students can be found in books.
throughout Florida attempted to break that record via live public broadcast and Webcast from
Disney-MGM Studios. During the program, Governor Bush led the statewide reading using an
excerpt from the book "Peter and the Starcatchers" written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson who
join the Governor.
At RRMS, 110 students from Ms. Mill's, Ms. Evan's, Ms. Johnson's, Ms. Pridgeon's, Ms.
Jones's and Ms. Hurst's rooms participated in the reading event. Prior to the scheduled reading,
.Principal Beverly Baumer,
.. dressed as a pirate, visited the
students and in a unique skit,
rallied the group together,
.-. e....p ? emphasizing what "treasure"
books are and how important
N reading is in achieving
academic excellence.
: In a statement by Governor
S Bush, it was noted that
J* .' Florida's students have made
"significant improvements in
Reading. This year, 223,000
more students are reading at
and above grade level
compared to 2001, and
S" -4 improvements in middle school
Buccaneer Baumer "points" out to students the importance of their reading tripled that of any
participation in the Guinness Record Read Aloud. previous year gain.
Ruth Rains Middle School
staff is focused more than ever in getting students to read at grade level, if not higher. They
recognized that without sound reading skills, students would not be able to meet the challenges that
lay ahead of them in their both their academic and personal lives.
"We are proud that we were able to join the Governor and fellow Floridians in trying to break the
world record," stated Baumer. "We can't wait to hear the results," she added. She also stated that
whether they break the record or not, the students truly enjoyed the reading assignment and are ready
for the next challenge.

Weatherization
Works For Our Community
October is National Energy Awareness Month and October 30th
has been designated as National Weatherization Day. The State of
Florida has administered the Weatherization Assistance Program
since its inception in 1976, and nationwide, over 5.5 million homes
have been weatherized. This day has been designated to provide
recognition of the State of Florida's Weatherization Program that
provides funds to low-income households, including the elderly,
disabled or families with children to help reduce energy bills and
to provide a more comfortable and safe home.
Suwannee River Economic Council, Inc., a non-profit
organization, provides Weatherization Assistance with home and
mobile home repairs in Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Flagler,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor, and
Union Counties.
Weatherization technicians use computerized energy audits and
advance diagnostic technologies such as blower doors and duct
blaster, to determine the most cost effective measures for each
home. They also assess related health and safety conditions.
A few of the Success Stories include a client that had
weatherization repairs done to her home, which included a new
door and a window reverse cycle heat unit. She quoted in a letter
saying "that by having the doors installed so well and the heat
pump unit so airproof and tight that I won't lose any heat or cool
air in the coming months", and that her electric bill will reflect
this; Another client that had weatherization repairs done to her
home, which included new doors and new windows, quoted in a
letter saying" that she could tell a big difference and this was a
good program". Another client that had no means of getting repairs
done to her home had windows, doors, wall and floor repairs done
to her home. Some of these homes had air filtration, health, and
safety issues before repairs were done.
For more information you can contact the Suwannee River
Economic Council, Inc. office in your local area, or the
Administration office in Like Oak at (386) 362-4115.
In the world of horses, a palomino is a light tan or golden
horse with an ivory or cream-colored mane and tale. A
sabino is a roan or light red horse with a white belly.

guests and members won't have to
leave as early for that long trip
home and also won't have to get
up as early the next day.
For Tuesday, November 7,

Post 149 meeting at 7:00 for some
important business that the Post

Another note: November 11,
Veterans Day will be a full one. A
contingent of Post 149
Legionnaires will be going to
breakfast at Appleby's in
Gainesville (all members are
invited to come along) and
afterward the Legionnaires will be
attending the Veterans Day
activities at the Veterans Park at
Kanapaha off Tower Road. Mark
your calendars so you won't
forget.
Remember our Armed Forces
all around the world each day in
your prayers and thoughts,
and here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and families of those called to
active duty, helping out however
and whenever we can.
For God and Country Wayne

Local Rotary Club Joins
"ShelterBox" Initiative
BY Terri Lang/ord ii; .
Bob Peiser, Associate Director of ShelterBox USA spoke to .
the Dixie County Rotary Club recently, hoping that the local
club would jump onboard and take on the global grassroots club
project.
The ShelterBox Initiative was formed to help the millions of
people who have been displaced by famine, war, and other
disasters; providing them tented accommodation and other
essential equipment to relieve their suffering and to enable them '.
to stabilize and reorganize their lives. First conceived and -..
developed in the UK in 2000, there are now national ShelterBox '' ,
Rotary club affiliates in the US, Australia, and Canada, all
working through the Rotary network, to promote a planned
response to inevitable, but unpredictable natural and man-made
disasters. Bob Peiser
Fact-at any given day, more than 12,000,000 people
worldwide lack adequate shelter and are given short-tem shelter. However, the need for shelter goes
on-often for months. Recovery from disaster begins and continues with adequate shelter.
ShelterBox goes immediately and directly to the people who need it most. Each ShelterBox
provides critical shelter and warmth for up to
10 people. High quality, new items include: a
,:I -. 10-person tent, 10 sleeping bags, water
purification tablets, flashlight/batteries, rope,
S. cooking/eating utensils, tools, stove, rain
ponchos, etc.
SThe complete cost of a new ShelterBox is
only $900. Assuming six months of use, the
./ cost of a Box is only 50 cents per day, per
.. refugee.
The Dixie County Rotary Club purchased a
Each ShelterBox has enough supplies for 10 ShelterBox this past summer and is currently
people. working towards acquiring another Box to be
sent to another needy family.
Funds are typically raised with club member donations; however, if you wish to join in the
worthwhile cause, you can contact a Rotarian and give them your donation today.


Tri-County Hospital Update
The application to the State deadline is Wednesday, October
18, 2006. Anyone who is yet to write a letter of support needs to do
it today and mail to: Frank Schupp, 193 Ventana Blvd., Santa Rosa
Beach, FL 32459.
Two weeks age representatives of Ameris Health Systems,
Frank Schupp and The Girvin Consulting Group met in
Tallahassee with Jeff Gregg, Bureau Chief for AHCA and his staff.
The following day, Karen Webb, AHCA Analyst visited the
Ameris Hospital in Valdosta, GA to see firsthand how Ameris
operates its hospital facilities. According to Schupp, the meetings
were very informative and productive.
1. This past week, 25 representatives of the Tri-County area,
including physicians, business leaders, the college, AARP, elected
officials and staff of the Florida House and Senate area
representatives, along with Schupp met with Jeff Gregg to voice
the need for him to approve the hospital's application. According
to Schupp, "we could have doubted the number of attendees;
however, the meeting was scheduled to be limited in seating space.
Again, Mr. Gregg was very gracious and took great interest in the
comments," said Schupp.
Schupp stated, "One matter that has arisen, Nature Coast
Hospital, Williston, FL, has requested a public hearing to oppose
the hospital." The hearing will be held Tuesday, October 31 at the
Shiners Convention Hall in Fanning Springs at 1:00 pm. Schupp
encourages every resident of Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy counties to
attend and voice their support for the need of a full service
hospital.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
J a NATIONAL
\ SCHOOL BUS
'J SAFETY WEEK
October 15-21
This year National School
Bus Safety Week is October
S15-21, 2006 and the theme is "I
:.; See The Driver The Driver
Superintendent Sees Me." Although school
Dennis W. Bennett buses continue to be the safest
vehicle on the road to transport
students, the danger zones around school buses continue to be of
great concern for bus drivers and other motorists. An alarming
number of personal vehicles illegally pass school buses that are
stopped with their stop arms extended and red lights flashing. This
is the time when the students are most vulnerable, and it is of the
utmost importance to remind the motorizing public to stop in this
situation.
Over one million students are transported back and forth to
school each day in school buses, with buses traveling over 282
million miles throughout the year: In the Dixie School District, we
transport 1,448 students daily over 348,831 miles of roadway each
year. We travel over 18,000 miles each year in field trips alone,
which requires night driving. We have had no fatalities or serious
injuries that anyone can recall in the history of our school system.
Our drivers are continually being trained and updated on safe
operating procedures. Our new fleet of diesel buses is the most
dependable ones on the highway today.
We in the district want to thank and commend our bus drivers
and transportation staff for their commitment, dedication, and
safety record. They are up before daylight driving in all types of
weather as they transport our most precious cargo, our children.


Thank You for a job well done!

October "AHHH"
It's subliminal and synonymous with the end of summer heat
and the anticipation of Autumn. Traditionally, the beginning of
the month usually delivers some rain showers and tend to
slacken off in the latter days. This makes planting new trees,
shrubs, and perennials a little tricky. The rains and the cooler
temps are benefits for the most part, however, newly planted
greenery needs moisture to stay healthy. This means that the top
of the food chain needs to keep an eye on new plants to
supplement with water what nature does not provide.
I want to mention a couple of DO NOTS as a warning to
whose who have an unquenchable desire to prune and trim on
those first few cool evenings. "Now who would do that?" Please
do not cut azaleas, camellias and gardenias this time of year.
Trimming a lanky branch or two won't hurt them, but you will
lose any future blossoms as you trim. Another DO NOT; don't
over fertilize trees late in this month, as you do not want to
promote new growth when the first frost arrives.
A few people have asked for suggestions of plants what
would give nice fall colors. Try the "Golden Rain Tree" for
yellow/salmon blooms; "Cassia Tree" with their show-stopping
yellows; "Nandina"and "Mexican Firebush" both turn shades of
fall orange; "Bottlebrush" with it's brilliant red plumes; lastly
don't forget the "Crape Myrtles: as they are flushing a second
time to show off their beautiful bright blossoms. There are many
other perennials that will give lots of color in September
through the first frost: Vinca, Impatients, Coleus, Crotons,
Mexican Petunia, Shrimp Plant, Cat Whiskers, Heather,
Butterfly Bush, Golden Dew Drop, Gingers, and Salvia, just to
mention a few.
Interesting to note that plant life seems to be revitalized by
the onset of cooler temperatures. And you thought chronic,
fatigue syndrome was reserved only for humans! So, rock:
yourself out the chair, take a walk around the neighborhood and:
check out all of the many beautiful fall colors.

Children

Unattended

In Your Car
Peter Guzman was
concerned about a growing
problem. After learning about
a little boy's death by asphyxia
when he was left unattended in
a vehicle, the Jacksonville,
Florida resident invented an
ingenious product called the
Child Alarm.
The Child Alarm is a new
device specially created to
promote safety for children
inside a vehicle. It alerts
forgetful individuals and
prevents them from leaving
kids unattended in a car.
Proprietary features render this
item simple to use. It is small
in size, yet effective and
functional, providing peace of
mind to adults. The Child
Alarm is unique and affordably
priced to appeal to a wide
market of consumers.
This original idea is now
being made available for
licensing to manufactures
interested in new product
development, especially in the
automotive and safety product
industry. Mr. Guzman is
hoping to have the Child
Alarm in full production and
available to the public within
the very near future.
Additional information
about the Child Alarm can be
obtained by contacting the
Publicity/Press Department of
Invention Technologies, Inc. at
(800) 940-9020 ext. 2285 or at
products(ca)invent-tech.com.
Invention Technologies, Inc. is
a Coral Gables, Florida based
company that is handling the
publicity and public relations
for the Child Alarm.



Nothing will sustain you
more potently than the
power to recognize in
your humdrum routine,
as. perhaps it may be
thought, the true poetry
of life.

is clear VOTE Dana Cannon Johnson for your Clerk of Court on Tuesday,

the past 17 years, my fellow co-workers of the Clerk's office have don an
outstanding job and I would like to THANK them for their hard work and

office continued to run smoothly. I will help bring Dixie County into the 21st
Century by providing a user-friendly website that is kept up-to-date with our

also link to other vital county records such as recent land sales and taxes
paid through the property appraiser and tax collector offices. The website
will also include historical records such as deeds, marriage licenses, civil
and criminal indexes.

If elected I will continue to serve.you, the citizens of Dixie County,
with a prompt and courteous manner. Thank you for your consideration and
support your vote will be greatly appreciated. Remember to VOTE for
Dana Cannon Johnson on Tuesday, November 7th.

I How Can The Social Security Disablity 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 induded 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.

Levy County
Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, October 5th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
So many quilts are being put
together and worked on, some
at home and some here. Ann
Hardee put a "Carpenters
Wheel" in for Goldie and she
will quilt at home. Peggy
Mayo brought in a beautiful
Saw tooth for us to sell. She is
a second generation to quilt
and now she is teaching her
daughter. Rhonda Horn and
Carol Irby are leaving to sew
and make quilts with the help
of Doris Beauchamp who is
their teacher. They have both
put together hankie, quilt tops,
they brought them out and
were shown how to put them
together so they can be
finished.
How great it is to see
younger ladies wanting to
learn to sew and quilt. Some
start late in life and some were
started at an early age. I started
learning at the age of 5 and I
hope to go for a long time.
Goldie had finished a Maple
Leaf Quilt for Virginia
Beauchamp and it is a work of
-art. Goldie is 92 and quilts all
-the time.
We want to thank Capt.
-Houchins for checking on the
-museum. He does this when he
:works at night and it makes us
-feel better to know these men
come by and make sure we are
safe.
Lunch was great with
-chicken & rice, beans, fried
-okra, biscuits, salad, cheese &
-mac, banana pudding,
chocolate cream cake, peach
cobbler, and so much more.

For Pets Sake
Thank you Rose and Archie
Carris for the big dog house and
the additional things. We will
make good use of them. Now we
an store stuff in containers that
-will not fall apart like the boxes.
No news on the canine. We
-followed up on a couple of the
:leads but nothing came out of it,
:still hoping we will receive good
-hews.

:Iaughs? Newberry Animal
