of natural, recreational, and

in White Springs the trail
stretches 170 miles to the
community of Suwannee

While the map is complete,
Park Manager Ben Harris
noted that the Trail itself is still
"a work in progress'".
However the Trail has plenty
to offer the canoeist, kayaker
and boater. As it is today, there
are enough private, state and
county parks and stops (every
.ten miles or less) that visitors
could take up to 7 days and 6
nights to enjoy the vast history
and natural environment that
the Suwannee has to offer.
There are several outfitter
tours that one can take, fishing,
swimming in the pristine
springs that feed the river,
snorkeling and SCUBA diving
are just some of the activities
you can experience.

The horse pictured above is an example of why the Dixie County Sheriffs Department called this one of the
worse cases of animal cruelty they have seen. Fortunately this poor animal was taken to the Horse
Protection Association of Florida in Micanopy, where he will be nursed back to health.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Last week the Dixie County Sheriff's Department began an investigation into what is being'.
called one of the worse animal cruelty cases reported in this area with 33 .horses found malnourished,
ranging from medium to severe. For those that were at the scene, it was heart-wrenching and hard to
understand how someone could allow the starvation of the animals which had been corralled there.
Dixie's Animal Control Officer was sent to the home of Steve and Beth Anglen, located off Palm
Drive in Old Town, Wednesday, October 11th concerning the horses. When the officer arrived he
found the animals living on 10 acres of land with little shelter and no grass or feed. It was obvious
the animals had not been cared for in a very long time.
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and Investigator Keith O'Neal were called to the scene and immediately
began their investigation. Neighboring horse owners as well as feed stores began to rally in support
of the horses, bringing much needed food and care.
Morgan Silver from the Horse Protection Association of Florida (HPAF) out of Micanopy, FL
came out on Thursday afternoon, after O'Neal informed her of the situation and rescued 12 of the
worst malnourished horses. Some were very sick and some had open wounds.

RIGHT TO THE POINT October 19, 2006


The latest on global warming
As of yet, scientists have not rendered a unanimous decision
about global warming. Not all agree that it is happening, and not
all who do believe it is happening agree that human activity plays a
significant role in the phenomenon. And from .this frustrating
absence of consensus comes a familiar voice, one dedicated to
selflessly identifying his own species as the culprit that will cause
glaciers to melt and Florida's pristine beaches to be four feet
underwater at low tide.
Former US Senator, Vice-President and presidential candidate
Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., recently revealed that cigarette smoking is
"a significant contributor to global warming." That's interesting;
however, it might, be a little more difficult to win lawsuits against
tobacco companies on this issue than on emphysema or lung
cancer.
. Believe me, I'm no defender of the cigarette industry. For too
many years, I survived in a culture where you were a "square" if
you didn't smoke; where "no smoking" signs were routinely
ignored; where our youth were constantly bombarded by radio and
TV commercials urging them to take up the habit (the print media
still get away with this); and it was hard to find a restaurant, indoor
sporting event, or social occasion of any sort where you could
inhale a breath of clean air.
Although I pride myself on my culinary skills, I now find
dining out to be a far more pleasant experience, as even when
:there were designated "no smoking" areas in restaurants, these
were of little effect, smoke going where it will regardless of what it
says on the signs. The smoke-free regulations that some said would
destroy the restaurant business might have reduced some patrons to
the utilization of take-out meals; but at the same time it has
obviously attracted the patronage of an equivalent number of non-
smokers, and perhaps even convinced some smokers that a good
meal was worth going an hour without a cigarette.
Of course, as always seems to be the case, some communities
:,have taken this too far. Like prohibiting smoking in bars. Bars deal
in a non-essential product/service and should have the option,
though I doubt that many would choose to prohibit smoking. Some
.cities have even prohibited smoking in outdoor areas and people's
.'homes and automobiles. Back off, Big Brother, it doesn't need to
.get that intense. A smoke-free workplace and restaurant would
:seem to satisfy the essentials without further encroachment.
Getting back to global warming, I realize that a lot of people go
about with mini-fires hanging from their lips, and that the resulting
heated smoke finds its way into the atmosphere; and I am told that
several hundred Lilliputians were able to subdue Gulliver (not that
the big guy bore them any malice), and I mention this only because
someone (not Al Gore) orice cited Gulliver's dilemma as an
example of how a lot of people, each exhaling small quantities of
smoke, could create a huge cloud that would cause the polar ice
caps to melt. Frankly, I never bought into that analogy, but perhaps
,Al Gore did.
In any event, I understand that Detroit had the earliest snowfall
on record last'week. Buffalo, NY, and surrounding area had as
much as two feet of snow in some places. Nearly a quarter-million
,customers were without, electricity as a result of snow knocking
down power lines, and a 105 mile stretch of the New York State
Thruway was shut down because of the snow.
Sounds like a few more people up that way need to be lighting
up. Otherwise, it could be a long, hard winter in spite of the global
warming that "everybody knows" is happening.

Letter To The

Editor
I would like to congratulate
he Chiefland Indians, of the
;VL Youth Football, for their
victoryy over Cross City, on
Saturday, October 14. The
coaches of the team, your kids
played hard and executed their
plays well. As a youth coach,
'ou can't tell me that
demoralizing another team is
why you went into coaching!
Winning is one thing, but
purposefully running up the
core on a team, when the
;ame is well in hand, is
despicable.
Your actions did not teach
'our kids anything about
winning, it taught them poor
portsmanship. In any other
'outh sports league, you would
be barred from coaching.
There is NO place for coaches
ike this in youth sports.
In closing,, I applaud the
:ids for their hard work, but
ian appalled by the coaches.
And to the parents, ask
'ourself one question, "Would
'ou want your child to
experience such
demoralization of a score of
51-6?" Job well done -
coaches.
"Turtle"
Gary Montgomery

Letter To The

Editor
There is a group of
volunteers in your county that
can use your help. This group
is the COP (Community
Observation Patrol)
organization. The members
watch their neighborhood and
report any type of activity that
can be destructive to the area,
such as vandalism and other
crimes, watch for fires or any
other hazards. They are also
there to assist their neighbors if
needed.
In the event of a fire they
are able to lead the fire
department to the fire to avoid
any delay in finding the
location. Also, they help
rescue and law enforcement
when needed..
You have most likely seen
one of us at an accident or fire
helping with traffic control.
We are easily identified by our
flashing yellow lights and
bright orange vests. We are not
law enforcement, but just a
volunteer group that wants to
help our county.
The COP organization
needs more volunteers in
neighborhoods throughout the
county that wants to get
involved in keeping their
county safer. If you feel that
you would like to help your
neighbors and your county,
contact the Sheriffs office at
498-1220, John Henry at 542-
8156, Rick Foy at 542-8977,
Roger Wilson at 542-1005 or
Everett Hicks at 542-9197.
Sincerely,
Roger Wilson

,_w Why Spay or Neuter?
This low cost surgery keeps your
animal healthier and helps fight
overpopulation. Millions of cats
and dogs of all ages and breeds
suffer as strays. These strays are
a result of unwanted, unplanned
litters that could have been
prevented by spaying and
neutering. Rarely surviving
more than a few years on their
own, strays die painfully 'by
starvation, disease, freezing or
being hit by cars. Please Think
Responsibly, have your pet
spayed or neutered. Thanks You.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2006


"RESCUED"
Continued from page 1

Approximately 6 of the horses, mainly stallions, seemed to be
in fairly good shape. The reason for this explained Silver, is that
those horses were dominate over the others, feeding first and
leaving little, if anything for the weaker and younger ones.
There was an addition to the herd on Thursday night, as one of
the mares gave birth. The foal was reported to be in good condition
and was being cared for by a good Samaritan.
Silver stated in a phone interview that one of the worst of the
mares died on Friday. "The trip was too much for her, she was so
weak and so depleted of nourishment that her muscles were failing
her," Silver stated. The mare struggled to stay up, but her frail
body finally gave up the battle.
In with-the horses and donkeys was a pony named "Lucy".
Unfortunately she had to be put down late Friday. Silver explained
that after the veterinarian checked her over, it was determined the
infection that she had was so severe that it had already gone into
her bones. "It was hard, she was so sweet," stated Silver. If it was
any consolation, Lucy's last few days were spent in a clean
environment, with food, fresh water, and lots of love.
All of the horses, many of whom are young, or "babies" as
Silver put it, were taken to the University of Florida Veterinarian
Hospital. There their wounds were treated, blood tests given for
Coggins, and cultures of their wounds taken so they would receive
the correct medication.
Another area of concern for the animals was the condition of
their hooves. "It is very important that horses' feet are properly
cared for," stated Silver. She noted that because of the weight that
horses' feet carry, they should be kept cleaned and trimmed. Any
crack or infection could bring a horse down.
When asked what it was going to take to bring the animals back
to health, Silver stated that it is a slow process, and sometimes,
even when you think you have them back to a good weight, they
still might not make it. "We really won't know what damage has
been done to their organs until later," Silver stated. "But right now
they are being fed high quality orchard and alfalfa hay, small
quantities of grain ( 2 cups 4 times a day), pro-bionic enzymes
(which helps with their digestion), minerals and lots of grass to
graze on."
Silver also stated they are working with the babies, teaching
them not to be afraid. "It is obvious they had not been handled
much, or not at all."
I asked Silver why a person would abandon their animals,
allowing them to starve. She stated there are several reasons why
these kinds of situations occur. One is that people many times buy
horses, thinking they are going to make a lot of money off
breeding and raising them; only to find out the market isn't that
profitable and by the time they buy just the basics like feed, they
aren't making anything. The owners become overwhelmed,
eventually cutting back on the feed, and in some cases stop
altogether. Another scenario is hoarding. This is when people take
on too many animals they can not take care of. You hear more
about this type of problem happening with cats and dogs and even
in their own houses. There is something that makes these hoarders


continue to collect, even though they can't afford to care for the
animals. And what is even harder to believe is that they don't
really see what they are doing to them.
Silver said that people need to know from the start that raising
horses is a very expensive operation. "It isn't like feeding a dog,"
she stated. Horses are high maintenance. They require specific
foods that are sometimes expensive, as well as training and
veterinarian care. People can quickly get in over their heads and
then the animal suffers and folks like those at HPAF have to step
in.
HPAF is a non-profit, 501, horse welfare organization. It is
supported solely by donations and volunteers are essential in
helping with the care of the animals they rescue. Its mission is to
provide rescue, rehabilitation, education and adoption services for
horses that have been abandoned and/or abused. Once the animals
are ready, HPAF works to find new owners who will continue to
care for the horses and let them live out their lives in dignity.
If you would like to help these horses with a donation, you can


do so by sending in your donation to Horse Protection Association
of Florida, 20690 NW 130 h Ave., Micanopy, FL, or visit their
website at www.hpaf.org, or you can call (352) 466-4366.
Working with the owners, via telephone, O'Neal and Sheriff
Hatcher agreed to let a designated person, chosen by the Anglen's,
to release many of the horses to those who wished to help the
animals; providing they had the land and financial means to care
for the sick horses. The Dixie County Humane Society took four
horses and 4 donkeys to adopt out.
The owners, who are truck drivers, were north last week, stated
to investigators they had paid someone to feed the horses in their
absence, but would not name that person. There have been several
calls from residents speculating who that person might be, but
without the Anglens divulging that person's name, little can be
done by law enforcement.
The Anglans will be facing 33 counts each of Animal Cruelty
and Animal Abandonment. Animal Cruelty is a felony and Animal
Abandonment is a misdemeanor.


Secretary Urges
Floridians To
Become

Pollworkers For

The Upcoming
Election
TALLAHASSEE, FL -
Secretary of State Sue M.
Cobb urges Florida voters to
become pollworkers for the
November 7th election. On
Election Day, the Supervisors
of Elections are among the
largest employers of their
counties, hiring thousands of
workers statewide to work the
polls.
"One of the most important
roles on Election Day is filled
by friendly, dedicated, front
line representatives of the
Supervisors of Elections," said
Secretary Cobb. "Pollworker
training is being conducted
state wide. I encourage all
registered voters to call your
local Supervisor of Election's
office to receive information
on working at the polls on
Election Day."
Poll workers are highly
trained individuals who assist
Florida's citizens in the
important process of casting
their ballots.
Across the state,
Supervisors of Elections are
recruiting those who enjoy
interacting with the public. To
.become a poll worker, you


must be an American citizen
and registered voter. These are
paid positions and training is
provided.
To find out more about
becoming a poll worker
Floridians can contact their
local Supervisor of Elections
or call the Division of
Elections at 850.245.6200 to
be connected with their local
elections supervisor.
In Florida, 61,657 citizens
served as poll workers during
the 2004 election cycle.

The Word Made Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the Son of Man, say the scriptures
say, "let him that hath
understanding, count the number"
(rev. 13:18). Count them if you
want understanding. If all. Three
Sixes were real Mark of the Beast,
just One single mark, then why
can't we use one Six instead of
three? This would be one six-one
park.
Rev. 13:17 says, "And that no
man might buy or sell, save he that
had the mark, or the name of the
beast, or the number of his name."
If this is referring to one natural
man, then his Name had a Number
as well as, the man had a number.
In our carnal religious way, we do
this so easy, we just say Three of
them-that's the Mark.
1 If you put Three Figures in a
,voman or man's forehead, you
would have Three marks, not One
mark. I, the Son of Man, say
remember, there are One mark,
Three number, and the name.
Count the number of his name.
Why is the figure Three here
mixed up with the figure six? The
figure Six (number six) seldom, if
ever, has any sacred meaning to it
at all. The figure six is never used
for that. By most Bible readers, it
is called an incomplete number.
We have been looking at the
figure Six.
And as you begin to
understand the real spiritual
meaning of why Sixes were used
to show the mark of the beast, you
'will also see that these Three Sixes
wrap around the Beast in the sea,
and also the beast in the earth
(people). The question asked
many times. Why use the figure
*Three? Could we not use the
-figure Two, or the figures Five,
5,st as easy? Here is the amazing
)ruth why God's Book of Numbers
is all through the scriptures, and
finally finishes is work in the
Book of Revelation.
k I, the Son of Man say let us
took at some of the ways the
figure Three is used in the works
if perfection. When we come to
God's attributes, we have
Omniscience, Omnipresence, and
Omnipotence. These Three are
Osed to fulfill God's great work in
the earth, one way or the other.
We have three great divisions
completing time. These are by
flame -. Past, Present, & Future.
,These three are showing the
',starting, bringing to pass, and
finishing the natural timetable of
'ife. We have three things that the
Suman creature (in his thinking
i4nd doing) sums up everything in
i!is work. These three are Thought,
tWord, and Deed.
1: I, the Son of Man, say every
,man's work is built around these
't4hree-though, word, and deed.
,These bring the past, present, and
future to where they are seen and
'understood. The more you see the
fgures Three, the more you see
.hiow great is this little figure Three
*to wrap the Three Sixes around the
*luman race.
o Continued next week.

New Prospect Baptist News
What a beautiful day Sunday was...our Heavenly Father is so
good to us in all ways, always. Our choir was in fine form, and so
was Bro. Billy as he brought God's messages from Jeremiah 30:12-
13. It was truly good to be in the house of the Lord!
Recently, Bro. Pat Berry has been heading up a most worthy
effort to collect and send needful items from New Prospect to our
troops in Iraq and, this past week, Bro. Pat and his team was very
pleased to prepare and ship a 184-pound package. We applaud
your efforts and dedication for seeing a need and working to
supply help, Bro. Pat and helpers!
On a different note, don't forget the Youth Rally at Mt. Nebo
Saturday, Oct. 21st, at 6:00 PM. The next Saturday, Oct. 28th, we
will have our Fall Festival, complete with hay rides, other fun
things, and good food down at Bro. Robert Brannin's camp;
always a fun time for the children and adults alike.
As always, please keep your prayers going for those on the
church prayer lists, our President and other leaders, and all our
military personnel throughout the world. We were pleased to have
visitors again Sunday and hope that you'll come back and bring
others with you...all welcome!
Have a good week, and may God bless you.

Vilma L. Gath
Vilma L. Gath of Old Town, IFL died on October 1 1, 2006 at
Haven Hospice of Tri-County in Chiefland, Fl. She was 86 years
old. She was born in Lativa and came to this country at the young
age of I1I years old. She arrived in the United States on December
21, 1931, on the ship USS United States. She then came to
Rochester, NY on December 24, 1931. She came to this country
not knowing the language or the people that she came to live with.
She went to school and within 6 months learned to speak and write
the English language.
In 1942 she met and married Basil Gath and during World War
II she became a naturalized citizen of this country, to which she
was very proud to claim. She worked at Beech Nut Baby Foods as
a Lab Tech for quality control. In 1953 she retired from there to
raise a family. Vilma and Basil moved to Suwannee, FL in 1980.
They were instrumental in starting the AARP chapter of Suwannee
and in getting the community center built. They moved to Old
Town in 1994.
Her loving husband Basil A. Gath precedes her in death. They
were married 53 years. She is survived by her loving daughters,
Leslie (Alfred) Fafard and Lauren (Paul) Lindee of Old Town, FL.
She has 4 grandsons, Brandon Spring, Shaun Spring, Jason Gath
and Erik Gath. 9 great grand children also survive her.
A private family ceremony will be held at a future date. A
Direct Cremations of Gainesville made arrangements.
Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"Wait Till The Waters Return"
I, the Day of the Lord, say 2 Samuel 14:14 reads "For we must needs
die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up
again; neither doth God respect any person; yet doth He devise means, that
His banished be not expelled from Him." I, the Day of the Lord, say God
has allowed us to know the secret of His plan, and it is this He purposes in
His sovereign will that all human history shall be consummated in Christ,
that everything that exists in Heaven or Earth shall find its perfection and
fulfillment in Him. Eph. 1:9,10 Phillips. I, the Day of the Lord, say the
secrets of the Lord are many and the mysteries of wisdom are most
profound, so when the spirit begins to illuminate just a small part, and
grant an understanding of another precept, it both enthralls and
overwhelms until we exclaim with Paul.
"0 the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God:
how unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out."
(Romans 11:33) Such again is our reaction as we consider this passage of
scripture used as out text. The context from whence it is taken deals with
David's family problems.
His son Absalom had caused the death of Ammon, another of David's
sons, and then fled from his father, and dwelt in Geshur for three years. I,
the Day of the Lord, say with the passing of time, David was comforted
cornceming his son which was dead, and now began to long to see that son
who was in exile. When Joab, a captain of David's army saw that David
was turning again towards Absalom he sent for a wise woman from
Tekoah, and arranged for her to peak unto David, and in the course of her
communication she gave this statement used for out text. David
understood the message, and sent for his own son that he is not banished
from his kingdom any longer.
I1, the Day of the Lord, say beyond the personal meaning and message
for David; we find that this scripture is one of the most precious promises
of complete restoration and reconciliation. The verse begins, "We must
needs die, and are as water spilt upon the ground, which cannot be
gathered up." The seeming finality of this first part of the verse is proven
to be only relative and temporary by that which follows.
I, the Day of the Lord, say it would appear that water poured out
cannot be gathered up again but God: no process is complete until the
end returns to the beginning, when we relate God's purpose to our cycle of
life, and the outworking of His plan of redemption. It would often seem
that an end had come to the road, when it only takes a curve.
Continued next week.


In Loving Memory
It's about that time when we
can say it's been another year
that you were not with us. You
missed laughs, smiles and good
times, but also missed tears. It's
been hard without you here to
see me grow into a older and yes .
even wiser person. You missed ,
so much in Mom's and my life! .
You missed mom finally having _
one of her dreams come true of
owning her own home.
I miss the moments we could
have shared and the laughs and
smiles that would have been the
outcome. I know you are in a
better place and you have no
worries but I just want you to
know I miss you so much and
love you more. You were the Bri
Best Dad any girl could ask for.
I love you and will see you in
heaven one sweet day.

District 3 Recognized As A State
Leader In Performance
The Department of Children and Families has released its
annual performance measures report that ranks its north central
Florida district serving Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Putnam, Suwannee and.
Union Counties in second place among 14 Florida districts.
The rankings compare success in 12 performance measures -
called the Critical Few that cover the districts' three program
areas, child protective services, protective services for elderly and
disabled adults and public assistance services.
"I am incredibly proud of the hard work of our staff under
difficult conditions, but I'm not surprised with the high ranking,"
said District Administrator Ester Tibbs. "Our workforce is
competent, stable and committed to the well being of our
communities. The results are consistent with those qualities."
While the department measures performance in well over 100
categories, the Critical Few are the top priorities that are most
closely tied to program success. It's interesting to note that the
district ranked first in the state in only one category, accuracy of
Food Stamps payments, but consistency among the categories
resulted in the high overall ranking. District 4, based in
Jacksonville, earned the top ranking.
The department's online performance dashboard provides
detailed information on all performance measures, including
performance statewide and individual districts. The internet
address for the dashboard is http://dcfdashboard.dcf.state.fl.us/.
Below lists each of the Critical Few performance measures and
the ranking for District 3 for the state fiscal year 2005-2006.
Percent adult victims seen within first 24 hours 11
Percent victims of verified or indicated maltreatment who were
subjects of subsequent reports with verified or indicated
maltreatment within 6 months 5
Percent children reunified who were reunified within 12

Percent adoptions finalized within 24 months of last removal -

Percent child victims seen within the first 24 hours 6

March of
Dimes Repeats
FDR's Historic
Call for
Change

Your Small Change Can
Make a Big Change In
Babies' Health

(Gainesville, Fl October
17, 2006)-Small change is
big-in fact, it's estimated
that literally billions in change
is sitting in American homes.
It's in jars and cans, socks and
drawers, and under cushions
on couches and in cars. Now
the March of Dimes looking
for small change to add up to
big dollars to help save babies
from premature birth.
Asking for change is how
the March of Dimes got its
name; when it was first
started by President Franklin
D. Roosevelt in 1938 at the
end of the Depression,
American families sent in
millions of dimes to help
defeat polio.
(http://www.marchofdimes.co
m/aboutus/789_821 .asp)
Now Tri-County residents
are once again being asked to
"Join the March of Dimes" to
fight an even bigger
challenge-premature birth-
the number one. killer of
newborns. Babies who
survive could be disabled for
life. More than half a million
.babies are born prematurely
.each year, including 98 of the
1700 babies born in Levy,
:Gilchrist and Dixie Counties.
(See March of Dimes
Perinatal Data Center)
The March of Dimes is
leading a national effort to
save babies from premature
birth by funding research to
find the causes and by
supporting local programs for
families with a baby in
intensive care. To learn more
visit
www.marchofdimes.com/pre
maturity.
"I'm asking you to help
put a stop to the national crisis
of premature birth," implored
Carol Jones, Levy County
schools and North Central
Florida March of .:Dimes
Executive Board member.
During the fall, local
volunteers in schools,
businesses and organizations
raise money for the annual
March of Dimes Mission
Possible campaign. "Join
these volunteers and the
March of Dimes and donate
your spare change at your
local community bank or at
the Coinstar Center at Winn
Dixie in Williston and
Chiefland and Hitchcocks in
;Newberry," she said. "It's
easy--just select March of
Dimes from the screen, code
.1230. It even gives you a
receipt for a tax deduction!"
she explained. This is a great
way for new youth groups,
churches, or organizations to
join the March of Dimes'
fight to save babies. Consider
collecting for the March of
Dimes during your child's
trick or treating for
Halloween. For other
donation locations, or more
information visit
www.marchofdimes.com/coin
The March of Dimes is a
national voluntary health
agency whose mission is to
improve the health of babies
by preventing birth defects,
premature birth and infant
mortality. Founded in 1938,
the March of Dimes funds
programs of research,
community services,
education, and advocacy to
save babies and in 2003
launched a campaign to
address the increasing rate of
premature birth. For more
information, visit the March
of Dimes Web site at

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2006


THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT
YOUR PUBLIC TRUSTEE


Q : I hear the county is
considering rezoning some
property close to my
neighborhood. I would like to
attend the County Commission
meeting when this matter gets
discussed. How can I find out
the Commission's agenda?

A:
It is the duty of the Clerk's
office to provide public notice
of the County Commission's
agenda. The Clerk is also
responsible for taking and
recording the minutes of the
County Commission meetings.
In large counties which have an
Administrator, he or she may
be the one handling this duty.
In smaller counties, the Clerk
may attend the meetings and
act as secretary. At the
meetings, the Clerk or
Administrator also handles
speaker requests cards, and
receives documents that need
to go into the records. Varying


Ellen Sands
from county to county, this
information may be accessed
on a website, if available in
your county, in a local paper,
on a local TV station, or
directly from the Clerk's office.
Contact your local Clerk's
office if you want to know the
best way to get information
about your Board of County
Commissioner meetings.

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.

Master The
Sport of
Fishing With
New Accessory
` As an avid angler,
Randolph Mark Goldman from
Jacksonville, Florida has seen
many anglers lose their rods
:off piers, and passersby
tripping due to rods that were
jn the way. That's why the
.contractor created an ingenious
view product that is sure to
save consumers a great deal of
frustration and money.
The Dock Master prevents
a number of problematic issues
When fishing. It stops others
from accidentally tripping and
eliminates the need to rest a
iod on a rail. The Dock Master
is sure to make the fishing
experience much simpler and
less stressful for consumers. Its
iser-friendliness and
affordability will make it even
more appealing. Goldman has
also developed a working
prototype, which is available
for review under the
appropriate terms and
conditions of confidentiality.
This original idea is now
being made available for
licensing to manufacturers
interested in new product
development, especially in the
fishing industry. Goldman is
hoping to have the Dock
Master in full production and
available to the public within
the very near future.
Additional information
about the Dock Master can be
obtained by contacting the
Publicity/Press Department of
Invention Technologies, Inc. at
(800) 940-9020 ext. 2285 or at
products(%,invent-tech.com.
Invention Technologies, Inc. is
a Coral Gables, Florida based
company that is handling the
publicity and public relations
for the Dock Master.

ARTICLE X, SECTION 27


PROTECT PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY YOUTH, FROM
ADDICTION, DISEASE, AND OTHER HEALTH HAZARDS
OF USING TOBACCO
To protect people, especially youth, from addiction, disease,
and other health hazards of using tobacco, the Legislature
shall use some Tobacco Settlement money annually for a
comprehensive statewide tobacco education and prevention
program using Centers for Disease Control best practices.
Specifies some program components, emphasizing youth,
requiring one-third of total annual funding for advertising.
Annual funding is 15% of 2005 Tobacco Settlement payments'
to Florida, adjusted annually for inflation. Provides definitions.
Effective immediately.
This amendment requires state government to appropriate
approximately $57 million in 2007 for the Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education and Prevention Program.
Thereafter, this amount will increase annually with inflation.
This spending is expected to reduce tobacco consumption. As
a result, some long-term savings to state and local government
health and insurance programs are probable, but
indeterminate. Also, minor revenue loss to state government is
probable, but indeterminate.

Dixie Sighting


"The Orange Chap"
Cindy Pierce of Old Town found this little creature in her front yard recently. She nicknamed it,
"the Orange Chap". Cindy said she wanted to keep it and see what it turned into, but hubby wasn't
too keen on her starting a worm habitat.
Well Cindy, I showed this picture to our County Extension Agent, Holly Houghton, and she has
identified it as a SPICEBUSH
SWALLLOWTAIL. (see
picture to right).
Spicebush Swallowtails are
beautiful butterflies with a
wingspan of 2.5-3.8 inches and
can be found in the eastern
half of the US, except in
extreme south Florida and
Texas.
They lay their eggs, one at
a time, usually on the
underside of leaves. Typically
they are a whitish/greenish
color; that is until they are
about to pupate. Their hey arn
eyespots are much bigger, with
the black part being kind of shiny. They also have two other secondary fake eye spots that are
yellow. The bottom half of their bodies are a sort of pinkish color. Viewed from certain angles, they
look like a small snake, to help deter predators from munching down on them.
Thanks, Cindy!

Bears Receive 7 Votes In Florida Sports Writers Association Poll Behind


Madison County (6-2) Who Received 12 Votes.


Bears Have Off Week Will Travel To Madison County On October 27



Bears Put Bulldogs




On A Short Leash


By John Kelley
The Bears put the Taylor Bulldogs on a
short leash Friday night in a 41-10 victory
at home. The Bears continued their run to
the playoffs, standing at 8-0 with the win
over the Bulldogs. The Bears put points on
the scoreboard first with tailback Rodney
Scott scoring on a long 54-yard run on the
third play of the game, however the PAT
was blocked. The Bulldogs answered the six
point Dixie County lead with a field goal
making it 6-3. The Bulldogs scored again in
the opening minutes of the second quarter
with a touchdown and extra point attempt.
The Bears trailed 10-6, but it was the last
chance that the Dogs would have to lead
Dixie County. At the four-minute mark the
Bears scored again as Scott ran for a 46yard
touchdown. Keen gave the ball to Scott for
the two-point conversion and that brought
the Bears up and out of the hole 14-10.
On the kick off, Korey VanAernam
recovered a Bulldog fumble and the Bears
had another chance to drive in for the score.
The Dogs however, dug in and the Bears
were forced to punt the ball away. -The Dogs
worked their way down to the Bear 1-yard
line but the Bears defense stopped the drive
and the clock ran out for the half just as
Cory Land picked up a fumble and the
Bears took over possession. The third
quarter started with the Bears scoring on a
35-yard sprint by Scott into the end zone.
Tevin Henderson stepped in for the extra
point kick and the Bears increased their lead
to 21-10.
Jacob Evans intercepted a pass midway
thru the third quarter that set up the Bears to
score again on a three-yard handoff run
from Glendon Osteen to Scott. Henderson
once again kicked the extra point giving the
Bears a comfortable lead 28-10.
Late in the third quarter big Anthony
Smith recorded a fumble recovery the ball
on .a fumble recovery and he set the Bears
toward another touchdown drive lasting


twelve plays and spilling into the fourth
quarter. With 11:55 left in the fourth
quarter, Quarterback Kameron Keen
completed a pass to AJ Land, who made a
tremendous leap and caught the ball in the
end zone for the score. Henderson kicked
'the extra point for the Bears to make the
score 35-10.

Minutes later Jerrell Tyson intercepted a
Bulldog pass and again they were in
business. This time the play shifted to
fullback Terrance George who on a hand off
from quarterback Glendon Osteen, busted
into the end zone to make the final scored
41-10. The Bears lead is increased to 41-10.
Rodney Scott was the leading rusher of
the game posting 278 yards in 32 carries.
This increased his total rushing yards for the
season to 1339, an average of 167 per game.
This is a good indicator of how well the
offensive line is blocking for their running
backs. The season cumulative totals show
AJ Land leading the defense with 44 tackles
and 16 assists followed by Jacob Evans at
37 and 26. Bud Wessels leads the Bears in
interceptions with 4. Keen has attempted 35
passes completing 16 for 313 yards, 4.
touchdowns and with Osteen attempting 19
and 8 completions. (Stats courtesy Ted
Boorum.) With the Bears standing at 8 and
0 this has turned out to be quite a season,
especially for the naysayers who predicted
otherwise.

Coach Wilkerson told the team after the
game "we have done something nobody
thought we could do." He asked the senior
players "are you guys scared of Madison?"
Their answer was, well you guessed
it... NO! The Bears are looking for big fan
support for the Madison game. Ride the bus,
drive your car, catch a ride but don't miss
this one as this game is for the District
Championship! GO BIG RED!

outstanding Gator quarterbacks. So what does Tebow do? He has made his


Like two All-Americans before him, Leak tasted
that bitterness Saturday night in a 27-17 loss to Auburn. He was
personally responsible for three turnovers in the last nine minutes
of play: Two fumbles and an interception.
SThus ended the unbeaten streak of the No. 2 and No. 3 Gators,
who fell to 6-1. At the same time, it restored some luster to
Auburn, who fell from that same perch last week after getting
blasted by Arkansas, 27-10, and will put the Tigers higher in the
Top Ten (They were No. 10 and No. 11 in the two polls.)
"Where's my toilet paper?" said an overjoyed Tommy
Tuberville, aluding the tradition of "Rolling at Toomer's Corner"
after a big Auburn win. "I'm going to Toomer's Corner."
As Florida trailed 18-17 and appeared to be driving for what
could have been the go-ahead or even winning score, Leak pulled
down his pass at the exact time Auburn's Tray Blackmon was
batting the ball out of his hands and the Tigers got the ball. It was
a third down and even had the pass been incomplete, the Gators
had a crack at a chip-shot field goal to take the lead. Auburn
recovered.
Florida had been moving the ball effectively. "We were on
schedule," Urban Meyer said of his team's late drive. "We were
putting the ball in our play-makers' hands, making yards in large
chunks Bubba Caldwell made some nice runs... but we make a
mistake and gave it away."
A few minutes later, Leak had the ball in his hands again, after
a missed field goal by the Tigers, but he immediately frittered
away the chance by throwing an interception. Auburn's John
Vaughn kicked a field goal to put his team ahead, 21-17.
With no timeouts and under a minute left, the Gators were in a
desperate situation, so on fourth down they tried a lateral play that
went awry as Leak completed a pass to Dallas Baker, who
)ateraled it to Jarred Fayson, who pitched it back to Leak, who
fumbled the ball away to Auburn's Patrick Lee, who took it in for
score.
In the ultimate indignation, the last time Leak touched the ball
it was turned into six points for the opponent. Statistically it
wasn't a terrible night, though it wasn't fabulous he completed 9
of 17 passes for one touchdown and 108 yards. But the fact
remains that he lost his composure at just the time his teammates
needed him. And this will not wear well on "The Gator Nation" in
the coming weeks (Florida has an open date Saturday).
Leak had help in the self-destruction of the Gators.. "Our
special teams didn't play well," said Meyer
In a game which they appeared to have in hand with as much as
a 17-8 lead at one time, the Gators fell behind 3-0 to start the
game and then 18-17 on a bobbled snap and the block of Eric
Wilbur's punt attempt, which was turned into Auburn's only
touchdown when Tre Smith of Venice in ran the loose ball in for a
score in what proved to be the go-ahead touchdown. It was sweet
redemption for Smith, who was passed over by Florida recruiters.


living running to his left in the red-zone offense. Late in the
second quarter, he took over for Chris Leak at the Auburn 16, took
the snap, took one step to the left and ran right for a touchdown.
The good news for Gator fans is that Tim Tebow is going to be
around doing this for at least two more years and maybe three.
That's the bad news for SEC teams.
After Leak's three turnovers in the fourth quarter, it also puts
into play a quarterback controversy like it or not.
Quick Jump Starts
1. In case you thought all that stuff about Tim Tebow was hype,
the young freshman proved you wrong on his first play against
Auburn with hisl6-yard touchdown run.
2. All of a sudden, the "SEC" stands for "Superbly Even
Competition."
3. In Detroit, Tigers pitcher Kenny Rogers is becoming more
popular than Mr. Rogers, Ginger Rogers, Roy Rogers and Rogers
.& Hammerstein.
4. Oklahoma running Adrian Peterson breaking his collarbone-
Saturday pretty much leaves the Heisman Trophy for Ohio State's
Troy Smith to lose.
5. Count me among those with likely to have egg on his face
for picking Auburn as this year's national champion.
Short Stuff
Good move by CBS, trading Lanny Wadkins for Nick Faldo in
the 18th tower with Jim Nantz, which means that the former
Masters champion will be allowed to wear his green jacket on the
grounds, but not in the booth ... I love the guy, but Arnold Palmer
hitting two balls in the water at a Champions Event in Spring,
Texas and quitting competitive golf last week is exactly how we
didn't want to see it end for the 77-year-old golf icon.
Bumper Sticker, T-shirt or Sign
(From ESPN Game Day, at Auburn)
1. There's a Leak in the system-Tebow
2. Tebow's Corner (instead of Toomer's).
3. Tuberville is Shula's Daddy.

Clipboard
Who put the Jordan
In Jordan-Hare?
For those who wonder where the "Jordan" came from on what
was once dubbed "Cliff Hare Stadium," it's the name of Ralph
"Shug" Jordan, the former coach whose Auburn teams won a
national championship in 1957. Shug (last name pronounced
"Jerden") was the only man in history to win an SEC title on both
football and basketball. His nicknamed came from his love of
sugar cane.

And Good morning ...
... All you Georgia Bulldog fans. This SEC parity stuff stinks,
doesn't it?

Importing Deer Floridians May Vote by

And Elk

Carcasses

From CWD

States Illegal
It is illegal to bring into
Florida carcasses of any
species of the family Cervidae
(e.g. deer, elk and moose) from
10 states and one Canadian
province where chronic
wasting disease (CWD) has
been detected, according to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC).
The states and Canadian
province where the deadly
disease has been detected are:
New Mexico, Utah, Colorado,
Wyoming, South Dakota,
Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois,
New York, West Virginia and
Alberta, Canada. Visit the
United States Department of
Agriculture's Web site at
www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/nahps/
cwd/ for the most up-to-date
CWD coverage.
"To date, no cases of CWD
have been found in Florida,"
said Deer Program coordinator
Robert Vanderhoof of the
FWC's Division of Hunting
and Game Management.
"Hunters can help prevent
the spread of CWD into
Florida by observing the
restrictions placed on bringing
carcasses in from other areas
where the disease has been
detected."
CWD, first identified in
Colorado in 1967, is a disease
that affects the central nervous
system and is related to "mad
cow" disease in cattle and
scrapie in sheep. The disease
always proves fatal to the
infected animal, but there are
no known cases of it being
transmitted to people, domestic
animals or livestock.
Hunters still can bring back
de-boned meat from any
CWD-affected region, as well
as finished taxidermy mounts,
hides, skulls, antlers and teeth
as long as all soft tissue has
been removed. Whole, bone-in
carcasses and parts are
permitted to be brought back to
Florida if they were harvested
from non-affected CWD areas.
To report sick or dead deer
suspected of having CWD, call
the CWD hotline (866) 293-
9282. For more information
about CWD, visit
MyFWC.com/cwd.


GAINESVILLE-AREA FOREST COMMUNITY RAISES,
$32,000 FOR SHANDS CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
ALACHUA, Fla.-The Gainesville-area forest community hosted the Tommy Usher Log a Load for Kids.
Golf Classic at Plantation Oaks Golf Club in Alachua on Thursday, October 12. The event raised over $32,000
for Shands Children's Hospital at UF.
Sponsored by Farm Credit of North Florida, Usher Land and Timber
and the Florida Forestry Association, the tournament hosted 170 golfers -
from all over North Florida. The most coveted prize of the day was the .
Bankers' Challenge-a competition between local banks and credit -, '
unions within the tournament. Taking home the Bankers' Challenge
prize was Campus USA Credit Union, with players David Barber, Peter
Subach, David String and Lyle Schreck.
Special guest and Shands Miracle Child, Grant, visited the ,--
tournament. He and his parents, who shared the story of Grant's fight
for life within his first months after birth, reminded everyone of the real BB
reason for the event: helping the kids of Shands Children's Hospital as
well as their parents.
"There are so many things that the money you raise provides that -
many people do not even think about," said Grant's mother, Melissa A Campus USA Credit Union
Dougherty. "Things like parking passes and meal vouchers. We stayed team member holds the trophy for
with Grant in the hospital for 150 days. It costs four dollars each day to the Bankers' Challenge, one of the
park at Shands-that really adds up. The parking passes we were prizes given at the Tommy Usher
provided just took one more thing off our minds." Log a Load for Kids Golf Classic.
Log a Load for Kids is a voluntary program by Florida's forest
community. One hundred percent of funds raised through Log a Load goes directly to Florida's children's
hospitals--no administrative costs are taken out. Now in its eleventh year, the program has raised over $1.25
million for children's hospitals in Florida.
Florida Log a Load for Kids is sponsored by the Florida Forestry Association. For more information on'
Log a Load for Kids and its upcoming events, please visit www.floridaforest.org.

7 I Wildfire Threat: Taylor

1 & Dixie County Residents

,: 1 Can Learn How to

Protect Their Homes
Steinhatchee- The Florida Division of Forestry, in conjunction with Taylor and Dixie County
officials, is presenting How to Have a Firewise Home. This short workshop is designed to help
homeowners learn how to best protect their homes from wildfire. Join us on Thursday, November 2,
2006 from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at Steinhatchee Community Center (1013 Riverside Dr. SE) for this
free interactive workshop.
Homeowners need to treat wildfires like any other potential disaster because over 101,000
acres burned throughout Florida this spring. Dry weather combined with debris left from recent


hurricanes has created dangerous conditions in and around many of our
communities. This unique event is designed to show homeowners in Taylor
and Dixie Counties how to make their homes and communities safer from
wildfires.
Workshop topics will include: the wildland/urban interface, why homes
burn, fire's natural role in Florida, conducting wildfire risk assessments,
Firewise construction and landscaping, and the national Firewise
Communities/USA program. All participants will receive free Firewise
materials as well as a T Shirt. Refreshments will be served. Representatives
from the Florida Division of Forestry will be on hand to discuss this
important issue and to answer questions. To register, please call Christine
Denny or Peter Colverson, Firewise Workshop Coordinators with Pandion
Systems, at 888-372-4774 or register online at www.pandionsystems.com .

FYI The Dixie County Courthouse renovations have continued with
the offices in the new addition being tweaked and a new heating system
installed. The old Clever-Brooks diesel fired furnace (top picture) was
installed in 1966 when the existing courthouse was built. Needless to
say, it had become obsolete and costly. A computerized propane fired,
Lochinvar furnace (bottom picture) was resenting installed, which will
give the staff in the courthouse a nice warm and toasty winter, and save
taxpayers money to boot!

Take Stock In Children 2006-2007 --
Dixie County High School's Take Stock In Children Program Coordinator, Kathryn Mclnnis,
was excited to announce that the scholarship program has grown over the past six years. In 2000-
2001 Dixie County TSIC started with seven students and ten mentors. Mclnnis was thrilled to .
announce the addition of seven new students in the TSIC program for the 2006-2007 school year, .
bringing the total of Take Stock students to 30! t
The Take Stock In Children Program is a nonprofit program, which provides college scholarships
to low-income children throughout the state. Mentors are used in the program to help guide the
college bound students through their high school years.
At the end of a student's 8th grade year. he or she can sign up for the TSIC program. A TSIC
student must sign a contract agreeing to stay drug and crime free, maintain satisfactory grades,
exhibit good behavior in school, have a financial need and be determined to succeed. TSIC students .,
are paired with a mentor (adult), who meets with them once a week for one hour. That mentor acts "
as tutor and role model, helping to guide that student towards their goal of a higher education giving .
them a solid foundation and hope for the future. It is through the mentor/mentee relationship that
strong bonds of friendship are made. n '
Congratulations to all seven of the new members!

From a.favorite Meatball Parmesan sandwich (left) and Antipasto
(right), to a house specialty Rotini Petrello (back), Petrello's menu
has somnething.for everyone.


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Nestled in downtown neighboring Trenton, Florida, is a restaurant that brings a taste of Italy to
the country. Located in the former Old Boarding House off Is Street, Petrello's has kept with the
country charm of the area, serving upscale Italian food in a family atmosphere.
Petrello's menu is filled with authentic Italian cuisine. From comfort foods such as spaghetti and
meatballs, to the more
complex flavors of Ravioli
Pomodoro, your experience at
Petrello's will be one of
satisfaction.
When you first enter the "-
restaurant all your senses come .
alive as the aroma coming ra
from the kitchen fills the air. ili
One of Petrello's staff will be c 7
there to welcome you;
instantly making you feel
important and at home. You
will be seated in one of several
cozy dining rooms, decorated
in the warm rich colors of an
Italian countryside. The tables Chef Teddy Vega (left) and Executive Chef Paulie Petrello's
are covered with crisp white combined talents are putting Petrello's on the map of places to eat.
tablecloths. But don't let that
put you off, as they are also topped with white paper so the children can color or play with pizza
dough while waiting for their dinner and to continue to entertain them while mom and dad have one
more cup of coffee or one of Petrello's signature desserts.
Family is very important to the staff at Petrello's. Two brothers, Paulie and Mikee Petrello, own
the restaurant. They are two of eight sons born to Richard and Ann Petrello. Second generation
Italian-Americans, and fourth generation cooks. Paulie noted that his grandmother, Grace taught her
five daughters and daughter-in-law how to cook. It was nothing for her to cook for 25-30 people at a
time. She, Grandmother Petrello, also was the one who inspired Paulie's father to cook.
Richard Petrello moved his family from Brooklyn, New York 30 years ago. He is a graduate of
the Johnson & Whales Culinary Institute in Rhode Island and now is one of the top instructors at the
Orlando Technical Center. Five of Richard's sons have followed him into the restaurant business.
The Petrello brothers have a true love of food and feel it is an extension of the family unit.
"Dinner time has always meant family time to us," stated Paulie. "My best memories of my family
are while we are at the table." Paulie noted that it is also important that their customers have a
relaxed dining experience, whether they are a party of two, a family or group of friends.
a Why Trenton? It is a simple explanation Mikee married a girl from Trenton, Michelle Myers
and it was while they were "home" for a visit Mikee discovered the Olde Boarding House was for
sale. Paulie, who was living in the Tampa Bay area, was thrilled when Mikee asked him if he wanted
to move to the country and open a restaurant. "I couldn't believe how lucky we were to find this
place," stated Paulie. "We love the area, we love the restaurant and we love the people here."
Mikee and Michelle are still living in St. Augustine; however, they make it "home" almost every
weekend. Recently Mikee and Michelle welcomed their first child into the world.
Paulie and wife Carrie, have settled in Trenton and have a slight lead in the children department
with three adorable girls. While Paulie manages the restaurant, Carrie teaches first grade at Trenton
Elementary. Paulie said they both stay busy with their work and the raising of their girls, and gives
credit to his great staff at Petrello's that enables him to balance it all.
In addition to helping with the management of the restaurant, Paulie is Petrello's Executive Chef.
But, it is the combined talents of Paulie and Chef Teddy Vega, who are putting Petrello's on the
map. Teddy is not only Paulie's right-hand-man, but also a life-long friend. In fact they worked
together in Inglis, before making the move north.
Petrello's menu has something for everyone, from those with refined pallets to those spaghetti
and meatball diehards (With the hope they will get adventuresome and try some of their Italian


Even if you have to get a
"doggie bag", you need to save
room to experience one of
Petrello's desserts. You can
cleanse your pallet with a
Lemon Sorbet or dive into a
Spumoni ice cream. Children
who eat their dinner are treated
to a free ice cream. Of course
what Italian Restaurant
wouldn't serve Cannolis or a

There are daily specials for
both the lunch and dinner
crowds. You can dine in, or


place your order to go. While no reservations are required, they recommend doing so if you have a
party of eight or more coming. That way they can prepare the table ahead of time, keeping your wait
to a minimum. Private rooms are also available as well as party trays and catering service. Paulie
noted they have plans to dedicate rooms so they can accommodate the sports enthusiasts.
Lunch is served Monday-Saturday from I I am 2:30 pm with dinner served Monday -
Thursday 5pm to 9pm and Friday and Saturday from 5pm to 10pm. To reserve seating, order take
out, or find out about the catering service, you may call 352-463-8494.

Local Authors Donate Books

To Dixie Library


Left to right Gene Dumas, Library Coordinator Cindy Bellot, and Art
Wycoff; each presenting Bellot with one of their newly published books.
Last month the Advocate brought you two stories about two
local authors whose books were recently published; Gene Dumas
and Art Wycoff. The two have become quite good friends and
decided to each donate one of their books to the Dixie County
Library together.
Cindy Bellot, Coordinator for the library, stated that she is
always thrilled to receive donated books, however, when the
authors are local, it makes it special. "We have a number of
talented people here in Dixie and we love it when they share,"
stated Bellot with a smile.
Gene's book, "Songs & Stories of My Life" and Art's book,
Grandpa...Tell Me A Story," are both autobiographies; inspired by
their families.
Gene's book is a collection of songs, poems and stories written
about his life's experiences, his extensive travels around the world
and. his family. "What kind of legacy does a father leave to this
family?" Gene asks. More than land, money or other physical
wealth, he feels that a journal of his life is priceless.
Art's book, inspired by his grandchildren, shares his personal
encounters with nature. Most appropriate for a Science teacher.
The, series of short stories combines interactions between humans
and wildlife in a whimsical and sometimes sentimental way.
You can check out Gene and Art's books at the Dixie County
Public Library. If you wish to purchase them you can find Gene's
on, Wale at www.booksurge.com and Art's at A & K Nursery in
Cross City.

Attention DCHS Students

Don't just sit there, wasting your high school days and years
away! Get Informed... Get Involved... & then Get Busy.. .With
something positive, something FUN, something that will not only
help you earn Community Service Hours, but will also help you
help our community...IT'S TEEN COURT OF COURSE!!
Hlave you heard of Teen Court?
Well, this is a little bit about us and what we've been up to this
year so far................
"Yes, we are the kids who handle some of the judicial issues
invQlving our juvenile offenders in our community," says Teen
Court volunteer Alexis Mauldin, "but it's not the only thing we are
involved in." Teen Court's motto is Providing Positive Peer
Pressure. This means we try to be a good example to the people in
our:school, community, home, etc. Teen Court is a second chance
program which allows minors who have committed a crime to have
another chance to stick with the straight and narrow and make up
for their misbehavior. We hold actual court trials, in the courthouse
courtroom, with Judge Koberlein, where juvenile offenders receive
sanctions from a jury of their peers. Teen volunteers are
prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys, clerk, and bailiff. Teen
court members learn a lot about the judicial system while having
fun in the process. This year our officers are Codey Fowler and
Erik Cundiff Co-Reporters; Casey Besterman Clerk; Delcarmen
Ortiz Treasurer; and Alexis Mauldin Media Coordinator. Our
sponsor is Mrs. Christy Keen and she has been in charge of Teen
Court for eight years now.
"We are a part of this community and we are concerned about
whit happens in our community.
As Teen Court volunteers, we want to be involved in
community service projects regularly. For example, in support of
the:Adopt A Highway Program we have adopted a stretch of U.S.
Highway 19 in front of the High School that runs from Pinner's
Oasis to the airport road. We will periodically spend the day out on
the* roadside attempting to keep our community beautiful by
picking up trash that people with no respect for our community
have carelessly thrown to the roadside. Our Fall roadside clean-up
date is November 21st. Teen Court volunteers receive community
service hours for participating in all Teen Court activities and
meetings. Teen Court is a fun way to quickly accumulate
corimunity service hours for scholarships and extra school credits.
.This year we have been recruiting and training new members.
Teen Court performed a skit for Bear Growl on October 5th and
put:a float in the Homecoming parade on October 6th Currently,
we'are gearing up for our Red Ribbon Week Activities. Red
Ribbon Week runs from October 23rd through October 31st. We
will be asking the schools and businesses to decorate their doors
with a "Drug Free" message throughout the week. At the high
school, Teen Court is sponsoring a "Decorate you Door" event.
Tedn Court volunteers will be the "judges" and the teacher and
clags with the best door/message will receive a prize.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:
"-- Hunting Season
Weapons &
... School
4_ .. Campuses
We are a community that has
a long and rich culture of
enjoying the opportunity of
Superintendent of Schools hunting on our local lands.
Dennis W. Bennett Hunting is a way of life in our
rural county, but it means much more than harvesting animals.
Hunting season is a time when families enjoy camping, cooking
and the outdoor life. It is a time to teach our youth how to enjoy
the outdoors safely and conserve our natural resources. It's a time
for us as adults to share quality time with our family and friends.
We have seen many changes in land use, hunting clubs and
society in general over the past ten years. We have seen tragedies
in schools, like Columbine and Red Rock where innocent lives
were taken. These situations along with the public outcry have
demanded that public schools put in place safety rules and
regulations to keep weapons off school campuses. Our school
campuses are gun and drug free zones and to violate this is
punishable by law. As parents we demand that school officials are
vigilant to enforce these laws to be sure that children are provided
a safe environment.
With hunting season starting soon, we want to remind parents
and students about the responsibility of owning and using a
firearm. We want to teach our young people the proper way to
safely use firearms and to remove them from vehicles after you
return from a hunting trip. Guns left in vehicles can be stolen.
When you drive on school campuses without removing a weapon
from your vehicle, you are violating the law. To own or use a gun
carries with it the responsibility to use it safely and remove it from
the vehicle before you enter school campuses.
We will be notifying students and putting signs up as students
drive on our campuses reminding them that hunting season is no
excuse to have weapons in vehicles parked on our campuses.
The School Board and Superintendent ask that parents please
take the time to instruct their young hunters of the responsibility to
remove weapons from vehicles after the hunt. We must remember
that safety is first and foremost and there are no excuses.
We wish you a safe and productive hunting season.

Health Centers Help
Fight Breast Cancer Among
Vulnerable Populations
The Family Medical Practice, in Cross City, urges women to
get a mammogram as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Community, Migrant and Homeless Health Centers across the
country are on the front lines helping to fight breast cancer among
low-income, uninsured women through prevention and outreach.
Nationally, Community Health Centers provided 467,600
mammograms to women last year and had nearly 35,400 visits for
abnormal breast findings. In addition, they provided more than
1.56 million pap smears, of which 145,000 detected an
abnormality.
Studies show that health center female patients are more likely
to receive mammograms, clinical breast exams, and pap smears,
regardless of whether they have health insurance. "That is why the
kind of affordable and accessible health care that health centers
provide is crucial to fighting breast cancer. When people have a
health care home, they will use it and stay healthier."
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related
deaths for women in the United States. An estimated 212,920 new
cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women in
2006 alone. African American women are less likely than white
women to survive for five years after being diagnosed with breast
cancer. The five-year survival rate for African American women is
76 percent, compared to 90 percent for white women. Minority
women are also less likely than white women to have a
mammogram. The five-year breast cancer survival rate for Native
American women is lower than that of any other ethnic and racial
group. Health centers have been able to help boost the odds of
early breast cancer detection by providing affordable and
accessible screenings, and launching education and outreach
efforts to culturally diverse populations.
Mammography is the best available screening method available
for the detection of breast cancer in its earliest forms, and can
detect possible tumors years before a woman can feel an actual
lump. It is recommended that women 40 years and older receive a
screening mammogram every 1 to 2 years. The CDC estimates that
timely mammography will help to reduce breast cancer mortality
by 20-25% when compared to women who do not receive
screening.
For more information about health centers please visit
www.nachc.com or call Denise Donohue at (850) 298-6003.

Crystal Wilson
Crystal Wilson a 2-year resident of Levy County has been
selected to compete for the Miss Ocala/Marion County 2007 title.
Crystal is the daughter of Henry & Annette Wilson of Cross City,
FL., Miss Dixie 2000, graduated from DCHS in May 2001, and
held a numerous amount of leadership roles in high school. In 2002
she became the president of C. Wilson and Assoc., Inc. a janitorial
cleaning company also known as Wilson's Cleaning Service. She
is presently employed at the Chiefland Citizen as an account
executive for the Tri-County Bulletin/Chiefland Citizen/ Williston
Pioneer and Cedar Key Beacon and is still operating C. Wilson and
Assoc., Inc.
She is currently enrolled as a student at Florida Real Estate
Institute and plans to continue her education by pursuing a
mortgage brokerage license. She also plans to complete her
associates degree at Santa Fe Community College and then
complete her Bachelors in business at Stetson University in
Deland, Fl. Her sponsors include North Florida Mini Storage -
Carl & Martha Pinkston, Accident Cleaners, Inc. Dan Pinkston,
Chiefland Citizen Dale Bowen, Bell & Westbury Accounting and
Tax Service Nancy Bell, Deborah Richardson, and D&D Studios.
This Miss Ocala/Marion County pageant is a preliminary to
Miss Florida and will be held on the evening of November 4th,
2006 at the Marion Technical Institute. The contestants are judged
on Interview, Talent, Swimwear, Evening Gown and onstage
question. Crystal's platform statement will be Teaching Real
Beauty: The future of our girls. She has recently joined with Girl
Scouts to encourage the Uniquely ME program, also supported by
Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty.
"I feel like our young girls need to be taught that beauty is not
only about outside beauty, but about inside beauty as well. Girls
begin to struggle with their body image around age 12-14. This is a
time when these girls need role models to show them what real
beauty is about. Otherwise they get very consumed in only the
outer beauty." The winner will go on to represent Ocala/Marion
County in Miss Florida. "As a local girl competing for Miss
Ocala/Marion County, I will also be representing the Tri-County
Area, so any support locally would be greatly appreciated."

n Is elom


First, if you are disabled, work out of town, in the military, a college student, or as a convenience for any
registered voter, one can obtain an Absentee Ballot.
Second, a registered voter can Early Vote.
?What is Early Voting?

A registered voter can come to the supervisor of Elections Office during specified office hours and cast
their ballot. This process occurs 15 days prior to Election Day but DOES NOT include the Monday prior to
Election Day. It is imperative for registered voters to update their physical address, to receive the proper
ballot.
Florida law requires that you vote in the precinct of your physical address. (The actual place of residence.)

Polls open.from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. on Election Day, November 7, 2006
101.043 IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED AT POLLS The clerk or inspector shall require each elector, upon
entering the polling place, to present one of the following current and valid picture identifications:
*(a) Florida driver's license. *(f) Debit or credit card.
*(b) The Florida identification card issued by the *(g) Military identification.
Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles. .(h) Student identification.
*(c) United States passport. *(i) Retirement center identification.
*(d) Employee badge or identification. *(j) Neighborhood association identification.
*(e) Buyer's club identification. *(k) Public assistance identification.
If the picture identification does not contain the signature of the voter, an additional identification that
provides the voter's signature shall be required. The elector shall sign his or her name in the space
provided on the precinct register or on an electronic device provided for recording the voter's signature.
The clerk or inspector shall compare the signature with that on the identification provided by the elector
and enter his or her initials in the space provided on the precinct register or on the electronic device
provided for that purpose and allow the elector to vote if the clerk or inspector is satisfied as to the identity
of the elector.
If the elector fails to furnish the required identification, the elector shall be allowed to vote a provisional
ballot. The canvassing board shall determine the validity of the ballot pursuant to s.101.048(2).
?WHY?
The law requires the poll worker to verify your photo and signature before ,0
permitting one to vote.

?What are the ways I can vote at the precinct polling location?
At the precinct or polling location, one can vote two ways; First, a voter can
cast their ballot by using the Accu-Vote Optical Scan machine. With this
machine, the voter will receive a paper ballot and has to mark the oval using
the pen provided. Then the voter slides the ballot into the machine.
The second method is using the Accu-Vote Touch Screen. When using this
machine, the voter will receive a card similar to a debit card that will already
have the second ballot style programmed into the card. Once the card is slid
into the machine and stays, the voter will follow the on screen instruction. After
the voter casts their ballot the machine will announce that the voter has cast .. '
their ballot and ejects the card.
The HELP AMERICA VOTE ACT (HAVA) is a Federal Act enacted by Public Law 107-252-October 29, 2002. To be in compliance we have
implemented the Direct Recording Electronic (DRE or "touch screen") voting system. The "touch screen" is in each precinct, and available
for voters with disabilities. All of our polling locations are handicapped accessible with pads, ramps, walkways and signs to Indicate
handicapped parking. The "touch screen" is equipped with audio and also the screen can be enhanced and also it can be "hidden" if the
voter using the audio chooses. A

Springhouse Quilter's News


The Springhouse Quilter's monthly meeting was held last
Tuesday, October 10 with 30 members and guests present. There
is always excitement when Springhouse members get together.
They are always ready to share their work and help someone
needing help in finishing up a quilt. In earlier times, quilts were
made for warmth. Today, most of the quilts are made to be
shown and are actually a work of art using fabric.
The block of the month featured by Gloria Sutton was a piece
called "Bluegrass" and it was beautiful in the shades of blue and
green which she used in making the block. The Trick-or-Treat
scrap swap was a big success. Most members brought a bag of
sCr-ps to exchange and the trick was to not get your own bag of
scraps. With all the stash of fabric most quilters have, it is a
wonder that one would get excited over these small scraps.
- The 2006 guild raffle quilts will soon be history. The quilts
will be given away during Trenton's November Down-Home-
Day. Springhouse guild members have tickets and will be glad
to get tickets for you. Plans are being made for the 2007 quilt
which will be a 30-block sampler made in shades of blue.
Springhouse quilters were advised of the November 11 quilt
documentation to be held at Dudley farms in Alachua County.
The Day Guild of Alachua will be hosting the quilt
documentation event and those interested in having quilts
documents inay visit the park on November 11. There is a limit of
two quilts per person.
,wi For additional information on Springhouse Quilters, please
contact Anna Gilliam, 463-7922, or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Legion News
For God and Country We
Associate Ourselves Together For
the Following Purposes: To
Maintain Law and Order; To
Foster and Perpetuate A One
Hundred Percent Americanism;
To Preserve the Memories and
Incidents of Our Associations in
the Great Wars; To Inculcate A
Sense of Individual Obligation to
the Community, State and Nation;
... These are some of the words
from the Preamble to the
American Legion Constitution,
explaining the aims of the
'Organization in caring for the
'affairs of "those that have borne
the battle. Remember them
always, for their duty keeps them
away from their families and
loved ones for a good deal of the
time.
With this time of year
approaching, and the holiday
seasons coming, it is even more
important to remember our Armed
Forces members all around the
world with cards and letters and
the occasional care packages"
from home. A new on-line blog
from a website,
www.dooniesbury.com, called the
"Sandbox" has notes from troops
stationed "over there" with their
comments on what is happening,
and some of the thoughts the
troops have. Keep sending those
cards and letters to your service
members. Make it a priority to
keep their spirits up for the hard
job they have ahead of them.
Here at home, your local
American Legion Posts need your
help. Help with the programs,
help with veterans' assistance,
help with fund raising, in other
words, help with just about
everything. Your American
Legion members are still Serving
America. Get involved with them.
Friday, November 10, 2006,
Trenton will have a Veterans Day
*Parade. Be a part of that parade to
honor our Nation's Veterans. If
your church or other civic
organization wants to have a
presence or a float in the Parade,
contact Major Stroupe at the
Gilchrist County Veterans Service
Office from Tuesday through
Thursday to see what you can do.
Make this a community parade to
tell the Veterans how proud the
community is of their service to
this Nation.'
Remember our Armed Forces
each day in your thoughts and
prayers, and here at home, watch
over our Legionnaires, veterans,
widows and the families of those
called to active duty, helping out
whenever and however you can.
For God and Country, Wayne
Gravely, American Legion Post
