Animal...

Cruelty

Charges
By Terri Langford
Staff Writer Steve & Beth Anglen
An Old Town couple
turned themselves in to authorities Wednesday, October 11, 2006 after they found out warrants had
been issued for them on 33 counts each of Animal Cruelty and Animal Abandonment. It was at the
couple's home located off Palm Drive that the malnourished horses were found. The Sheriff's
Office called in the Horse Protection Association as well as the Dixie County Humane Society and
local horse lovers to help with the rescue of the horses. Two would later die, while the others are
reported to be doing well. See "HORSES" page 5-A

Dedication Held At Ft. Fanning Historical Park


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Dixie Rescue Units responded in record time this past Monday, October 23rd to a 911 call
concerning an airplane crash at the Cross City Airport. Fortunately, the report proved to be a false
alarm and the pilot of the 1976 Bellanca Super Viking made a safe landing.
The call to 911 was made by Georgette Palermo of Ocala, wife of the pilot, Frank Palermo.
Georgette was watching as her husband flew over the airport runway and disappeared over a clump
of trees. A large cloud of black smoke came up from the trees and Georgette thought her husband's
plane had crashed.
The Palermos had been traveling from Tallahassee the day before when their plane began
experiencing instrument problems. "At one point the instruments showed we were in a steep climb,
when in fact, we were in a dive," stated Frank. See "AIRPLANE" page 5


Pictured above is Fanning Springs Mayor Carol McQueen (front), reading the plaque dedicating the new Ft.
Fanning Historical Park. Standing behind the Mayor are Seminole Indian and an 1800 United States
Solider re-enactors. See "FORT FANNING" page 2B


Mayor Proclaims

"Trick-Or-Treat"

October 31st
Cross City Mayor Tank Lee declared
the 2006 "Trick-Or-Treat" will be
held on Tuesday, October
31st...Halloween Night. Please be

observe Halloween on Saturday,
October 28th, 2006 from sundown to

Office, the young girl was
waiting in her father's truck


Richard Allen Pelchat

Pelchat's truck pulling away
from the station. The witness

Amendments up for grabs
Tuesday, November 7th, is election day, and I'm not going to
tell you who to vote for. After all, I have family members who are
Seminole fans, so obviously I don't wield a great deal of influence.
However, I would like to-comment on the six constitutional
,amendments that will be on the ballot, so take my observations for
whatever you feel they might be worth.
Amendment One deals with the state planning and budget
:process. I've read the ballot summary over several times and
:found it quite confusing. The Gainesville Sun also found it
confusing, but endorsed it nonetheless. Personally, I don't make a
practice of voting for things I don't understand on the basis of the
-Sun's endorsement, but go for whatever feels good to you.
Amendment Three (Two and Five apparently didn't make it
all the way to the ballot) requires the approval of 60 percent of
those voters casting ballots on a constitutional amendment before
it can become law. Not a bad idea. Amending the State
Constitution should not be a slam-dunk. Amending the US
Constitution requires two-thirds of each house of congress and
ratification by three-fifths of the state legislatures. The US
Constitution has been amended only 27 times, and the first ten
were for all practical purposes a part of the original document.
Our State Constitution has been amended almost as many times
just since 1968, including passage of such turkeys as the net
fishing ban, the class size amendment, the high speed rail fiasco
and a set of rules on how to raise hogs.
Amendment Four seeks to spend money in order to protect
people "especially youth" from addiction, disease and other health
hazards of using tobacco. Sounds good, but what's it gonna take?
When I was a kid, smoking was cool. "Everybody" did it. But that
was before smoking-related lung cancer, heart disease and a
whole laundry list of respiratory problems started surfacing. All
that stuff has been common knowledge for decades. Do you know
anybody whose life has been shortened by smoking? Do you know
anybody who wants to quit but can't because the stuff is so
addictive (and the more so the younger you start)? Does a
dependence on an oxygen canister because your lungs don't work
right appear glamorous? The evidence is already out there, so wise
up.
Amendment Six would double homestead exemption for "low-
income seniors." Good idea, considering that property values have
" skyrocketed since homestead exemption was raised from $5,000 to
" $25,000, but why not let everybody in on the action?
' Amendment Seven is a well-earned veterans benefit except
2 that it contains too many qualifying clauses. The coverage should
' be broader in order to accommodate more veterans with service-
connected disabilities. It could take a lawyer to sort out who was
eligible for what; but I'd say go for it and hope we can get
something better on down the line.
Like the previous two, Amendment Eight doesn't go far
enough. It seeks to outlaw eminent domain abuse, the political
' ploy through which people can lose their homes or small
businesses because city governments can confiscate their property
for less than it's worth and then sell it to high-dollar developers
who will wind up paying more taxes. The trouble with the
amendment is that it allows a loophole for the legislature to get
around it with a three-fifths vote. So, is it better than nothing, or
will it defuse the issue without solving the problem? Not an easy
call, is it?
Anyway, November 7th is election day, so either vote or don't
gripe about things turn out.

Letter To The

Editor
Dear Editor,
I attended the meeting of the
Planning and Zoning Board of
Taylor County, where many
people spoke their opinions,
thoughts, ideas and heartfelt
feelings about the coal plant.
The board was extremely
generous in allowing everyone to
speak at length on the subject,
rejecting the land use change. I
applaud their patience and
attentive listening. I appreciate
that they made the decision to
"wait" to make a decision until
they had a chance to review all the
data presented to them. It was a
wise choice. Thank You.
At the end when TEC had
rebuttal time Mr. Mike Lawson,
Project Manager of TEC, got up to
speak.
And, speak he did. He
insulted "we the people of Taylor
County" by calling a spokesperson
an idiot.
I take exception to this.
Although we sat on opposite sides
of the table I don't believe anyone
was disrespectful to the members
of the TEC team.
If calling the residents of this
county idiots to our face what do
they think and say behind our
backs?
Are we being considered "the
country bumpkins", that they can
trot all over?
Think about it! Is this the type
of people we want as "neighbors"?
Yours for a clean environment,
Carole Taitt

Letter To The

Editor
Four years ago, when I joined
the artist's co-op in Cedar Key, I
discovered that there were lots of
local artists looking for a place to
display their work for sale.
I approached a local man and
told him of our dilemma and asked
him to donate a building, he could
have been like most people, but he
wasn't. He agreed that an art
gallery was something Dixie
County could use. So after
discussing it with his wife, they
unselfishly donated a building.
Thank God for good people, over
thirty artists now have a place to
showcase their talents.
We are celebrating our Third
Anniversary this month at Willow
Hole Art Market. We'd like to
thank all the wonderful people
who have visited the store, who
have encouraged us to succeed by
using our God-given talents. We
would also like to thank the Dixie
County Advocate for publishing
articles about us and helping us to
get our name out there by
providing economical advertising
rates. Most of all we'd like to
thank Marvin and Phyllis for their
most generous donation.
Sincerely,
Cindy Smith and all the
Artists of Willow Hole Art Market


Letter To The Editor
In a perfect world, people would do and be, as they should.
For example, teachers would:
*understand a child as well as his/her parents does.
*know that a child has soccer, football, baseball or basketball, FFA,
4-H, cheerleading, church activities, and chores, so they do not assign
homework.
*teach so that a child can easily understand, comprehend, or calculate
any and all skills needed to score a four or five on the FCAT.
*grade every paper the same day it is done by a child so that he/she
can have timely feedback.
*understand that a child is human and should be allowed to have
his/her "moments".
*know that a child cannot sit that still for fifty minutes and should
allow movement at will around the room.
*maintain control in the classroom, so a child can do his/her
assignment without disturbance.
*live lives above reproach, so he/she would be a positive influence on
a child.
*never, ever get tired, frustrated, or angry, because if they don't like
teaching they should get a different job.
*always be considerate, pleasant, and cheerful, so that children will
enjoy being at school.

And parents would:
*structure the home so their child had a good night's sleep (8-10
hours) every night and is fed three highly nutritious, very delicious meals
every day.
*make sure their child maintains optimum health with yearly check-
ups and regular visits with a doctor and a dentist.
*keep their child's mind healthy by safeguarding against any and all
negative influences coming from music, video games, peers, and
activities away from the home.
*assure that their child is up early, clean, well-dressed, well-fed, and
on time each school day.
*keep their child's school supplies on hand, so he/she always has
paper, pencils, highlighters, a dictionary, a planner, and AR books.
*check their child's homework and discuss it with him/her.
*keep up with current information, trends, and events in all subject
areas, so they can give up-to-date information and help with -homework
and projects.

And students would:
*learn any skill, presented in any way, no matter the type of learners
they are.
*do every assignment on time, every time.
*complete a long assignment in a short time because they are focused
and alert.
*easily understand, comprehend, or calculate any and all skills needed
to score a four or five on the FCAT.
*quickly and easily dismiss any social or emotional problem that may
occur during a school day, so they can focus on academics.
*always have any and all supplies needed for any assignment given.
*arrive at school on time, every day, properly dressed with completed
homework in hand.
*always be cheerful, cooperative, and excited about each assignment
given.

Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world. We must quit bashing each
other and learn to get along by showing some consideration for one
another's "imperfections."
Sincerely,
Caresse Pridgeon


Letter To The Editor
For some, life is stormy. Wind tossed, we become weathered and in
need of an anchor. So we find that we believe in God.
Often overwhelmed, feeling insignificant we see the works of our
God in the grandeur of nature and this instills a sense of wonderment and
self-worth. Feeling small and petty we see God in acts of generosity and
love, and this brings a sense of gratitude and worthiness for the good that
we can do. ,
Having not found our own voice we listen for that "still small voice"
within, for guidance, truth and justice. Hoping for further enlightenment
we form patterns of worship and these bring stability and comfort.
Then one day we come to realize that it has been by our own strength
of character and integrity that we are preserved... and how could we
have known this...had we not been tested?
So blessing or curses, good deed or bad, are thoughts and expressions
of our own, if our God lives within and is worshiped in spirit and truth.
In death we leave this body and release the spirit that lives on in a
world that will remember us for what we were and what we have done.

"The Solution"
With millions of illegal immigrants now working and trying to exist in
the US of A, we now can open the window of opportunity to them and at
the same time solve two of our country's challenges!
Challenge #1 Millions of Mexican aliens taking advantage of free
world social advantages (schooling, health care, etc).
Challenge #2 Lack of our citizens joining the armed forces
voluntarily in spite of recruiting incentives. In case of a major conflict
this might necessitate the draft.
Why not recruit aliens with these benefits:
1. Training in Armed Forces of U.S.A.
2. Classes in English
3. Nice pay with, of course, housing & food.
4. Serve the country honorably for four years and
receive citizenship for self and immediate family.
5. Dental and health care while serving.,
6. Chance to excel and receive beneficial career
training.
7. Allotments of cash can be taken from pay and sent by
government to family each payday.
These benefits are of course, as with anyone, for good honorable
service in this country's Armed Forces.
Amnesty for aliens gives some the chance for eventual citizenship
in the US of A.
Honorable service takes the chance out of being citizens and this
privilege becomes a definate.
These people, Mexicans,. are for the most part working hard to
take care of their family here and at home. I'm sure they would fight
hard in the Armed Forces loyally to become legal immigrants as our
citizens did in the Revolutionary War.
In World War II, Asian soldiers (Japanese) had heavily decorated
units while fighting FOR the United States.
Thinking to turn problems into assets.
John Longmire

Letter To The Editor
I am writing this letter to all the infantile, low class, disrespectful
persons responsible for vandalizing the signs of people running for
office. Those signs are expensive and are purchased with hard earned
money by those candidates.
It is our God given right to vote for whom we want in office. If you
do not particularly care for the person running for office, then DON'T
VOTE FOR THEM PERIOD!
The signs are an eyesore, as it is, and when they are destroyed, we are
left with trash on the sides of the road. We have a lot of travelers coming
through Dixie County and what does this vandalizing show about our
community??? I am not convinced that all the damage that is being done
is solely by juveniles either.
"Come on people, show some maturity or better yet show some
respect!"

"AIRPLANE"
Continued on page 1
The couple was able to land the plane at the Cross City Airport Sunday night and stayed the night
in town at the Carriage Inn. Cross City Airport & Dixie Aviation Manager, Chris Chason, who is
also a pilot, volunteered to fly with Frank on Monday so they could check the instruments.
"The flight went well, all the instruments seemed to be fine," stated Chason. "I feel the
Palermos' problems the day before stemmed from weather conditions at the time they were flying
over Perry," he added. Chason also noted that he and Frank had been in communication with the
UNICOM frequency during their test flight, which notified other planes of their position.
The black smoke that Georgette saw came from a large burn that was taking place in the vicinity
that she lost sight of the plane.
When the plane was spotted coming back around and went into a landing pattern, there was a
collective sigh of relief from emergency personnel, law enforcement, fire crews and other county
personnel.
"I would like to thank all the rescue workers for their quick response to this situation," stated
Chason. "It is good to know that they can be counted on in case of a real emergency," he added.
Once landed, Frank Palermo was a bit confused as to why all the emergency vehicles were at the
airport and asked what had happened. When told that his wife had feared he had crashed he became
emotional and went to her side. Their embrace was emotional, not only for the couple, but for those
at the scene.
Georgette is also a pilot, but a wife first and it was understandable how she could have thought
the worst under the circumstances. Frank is a veteran pilot, having flown in the US military. The
couple planned on staying at the Cross City airport for a while until they could collect themselves,
before heading to Williston where they store their plane. They promised to call us and let us know
of their safe return home

"HORSES"
Continued from page 1

Steve Anglen, 41, and Beth E. Anglen, returned to Dixie County knowing they would be facing
charges. Because neither of them had any prior criminal history, bond was set for Beth at $50,000,
while it was set for Steve at $25,000. Both had bonded out as of press time.
Karen Hatton of the States Attorney's Office in Cross City stated that four of the animal cruelty
charges will be tried as felonies. The maximum sentence the Anglen's could be facing is five years
in prison for each count a total of 20 years if consecutive. The minimum sentence, if found guilty,
would be probation, up to five years for each count.
Hatton noted the misdemeanor charges, the remaining 29 cruelty charges and the 33
abandonment charges could send the couple up to a year in jail for each count or probation.
Hatton noted that if they are found guilty she will ask the judge to put the condition that they
never be allowed to own animals again to their sentence.
While there hasn't been a firm date set for their trial which will go before Judge Roy Bean-
Circuit Felony Court Judge, the Anglen's may have their first arraignment the 31st of this month.

New Prospect Baptist News
We had a good turnout again Sunday and, as always, it was
good to be in God's house again. Our Sunday School and
Children's Church continue to do well, and the church services are
always a blessing. Both our choir and Bro. Billy did superb jobs in
their respective fields, the latter delivering very timely messages
from Luke 9:37-45 and Psalms 142:1-7. What a wonderful way to
get the new week underway!
Everyone is looking forward to our Fall Festival on Saturday,
Oct. 28th, 6:30 PM, at Bro. Robert Brannin's camp, where there
will be lots of fun and food for children and adults alike. On
Sunday, Oct. 29th, there will be a Children's Church
Dinner/Meeting at NPBC immediately after church. We look
forward to other activities as the Thanksgiving and Christmas
seasons draw near, always keeping our Heavenly Father in the
forefront of all things.
Please be in prayer for our military personnel in harm's way
around the world, as well as for our President and all national,
state, and local leaders. Be praying, too, for the folks on the
various church prayer lists in our area. It was good to have visitors
again Sunday and, as always, you and all others are welcome
anytime. Have a good week, and may Gnd bless you

The Word Made

Flesh


Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the Son. of Man, say the four
figures in the Holy scriptures that
show perfection are: Three, Seven,
Ten, & Twelve. These four figures
denotes divine perfection all
through scriptures. The figure Six
is not mentioned. The figure Three
is used showing divine perfection.
The figure Six is used to show
incompletion. We know that the
Beast nature or spirit will have to
be taken and destroyed.
Everything, religious or non-
religious will be finished when
Thought, Word, and Deed are
fully manifested and finished in
fhe human race. This great
operation of Thought, Word, and
Deed establishes the Present,
shows up the Past, and reveals the
Future (thought, word, deed -
past, present, future).
I, the Son of Man, say this
figure Three shows up in these
works all through the human race,
and brings to spiritual view- what
is complete and what is not
complete. The complete and
incomplete are working at the
same time in the human race.
These are called Christ and anti-
christ by most people. The figure
Three shown in these words called
complete and incomplete, show
ihat both of these are working at
the same time.
Compare them to the wheat
and the tares in St. Mathew 13:36-
43. The wheat will be harvested
and put in the barn, but the tares
will be burned in the fire. We are
speaking about the people that
have overcome the Beast, and
people that are still under the 6-6-
6. As long as there is Beast nature
in the people, the figure Six is
there and what it represents. I, the
Son of Man, say remember, I said
the Three Sixes wrap themselves
around the beast. And as God
moves with His spirit, He uses the
figure Three (Thought, Word, and
Deed Past, Present, Future) to
bring the knowledge of the Lord
into the earth (people), which is
under the powers of sin and death:
6-6-6 incompletion.
So, it is clear that the figure
three had to be used to express
God's divinity, as well as 6-6-6 to
express the corruption that is in
the earth through Beast-like
incomplete works. Continued next
week.

United Christian Services Annual

Fund Drive
United Christian Services of Dixie County will soon begin its
annual fund drive to solicit donations from local businesses to help
raise funds to purchase and distribute Christmas food baskets.
Businesses like yours have helped make past holiday seasons more
joyous for some of our less fortunate citizens.
With help from local businesses last year we were able to
distribute 327 holiday food baskets to verified needy families. This
year our goal is to distribute 400 baskets. If you can participate, we
would like your support to help reach this goal. A documented
UCS representative will call on your place of business sometime
during the month of November to solicit a donation. If you are able
to make a monetary donation at this time it will be much
appreciated. The representative can leave information if you would
prefer to make a donation via mail or in person to our facility. UCS
is a non-profit organization chartered under 5013C of the IRS
Code and you donation is tax exempt.
Recipients of these food baskets are screened and must meet
certain specified criteria. The food baskets will be comprised of a
frozen turkey or ham and all ingredients for a good family holiday
meal.
Please fell free to visit our facility at 264 NE 210 Avenue any
week day between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm to observe first hand our
operation.
Thank you for you continued support of United Christian

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"Wait till the waters return"
Continued from last week. For from Him and through Him and to Him
are all things, for all things originate with Him and come from Him; all
things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate
and to end, in Him. (Romans 11:36, Amplified).
1, the Day of the Lord, say this is God's great law of circularity. All things
are out of God, pass through their processes according to the
administration of Christ, and ultimately consummate in Him. He is both
the Alpha and the Omega. We need not list a great number of verses,
which bear this out, but shall return to our metaphors of water and rivers.
I, the Day of the Lord, say, "All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea
is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come thither they return
again." (Ecclesiastes 1:7) We speak of something that has passed on as
"water under the bridge". But the sea is not the end; the full cycle is not
complete until the water has returned to the place from whence it came.
For He makes small the drops of water: they pour down rain according of
the vapor thereof: which the clouds do drop and distill upon man
abundantly."
(Job 36:27-28) We shall deal more with the thought of vaporizing in
this message. I, the Day of the Lord, say the first glimpse at the problem
appears to hold no hope we must needs die water spilt on the ground
which cannot be gathered up, yet the verse goes on, He devised means that
his banished be not expelled. The word "devise" is from the Hebrew word
"chashab" meaning to think, purpose. Then this word "means" comes
from the same root, which is built up, to "machashebeth", or thought,
cunning work.
I, the Day of the Lord, say thus using both words we have the wisdom
of God thinking, purposing a process whereby He will have the thought
out design workable plan, which He shall be able to use to meet the need.
When God has executed His thought, the banished are no loner banished.
God has a marvelous cunning work, speaking of that skillful design, which
comes from His inner thought, which is creative, new, not something
copied from fomler things.
I, the Day of the Lord, say this word given as "cunning work" is used
many times in relation to the preparing of the Tabernacle in the
wilderness, as God placed His spirit upon the workmen, and they wrought
cunning handy-work the spirit directing their thinking, they produced
rare designs which were not reproductions of other things but creatively
expressed the mind of God for that work.
I, the Day of the Lord, say we see this about us continually; there are
those with the ability to express a creativity in their work, to produce a
design from within which is totally new. But others always need a pattern,
something to copy from which another has designed. The world pays for
these "originals". And while the reproductions are nice, no one tried to
compare them to the original creation.
Continued next week...

homeowners in Taylor and Dixie Counties how to make their
homes and communities safer from wildfires.

why homes burn, fire's natural role in Florida, conducting wildfire

landscaping, and the national Firewise .I 4 J1Im-k1
Communities/USA program. All participants 7

An Evening Of
Impressions
LAKE CITY, Fla. Get
ready for an "evening of
impressions" when Hollie Vest
performs as Tina Turner and
Christopher John performs his
side splitting impersonations
on Thursday, November 9, at
7:30 p.m., at the Levy
Performing Arts Center.
Hollie Vest is the ultimate
Tina Turner tribute artist. She
performs her live tribute
authentically and respectfully
with boundless high energy
recreating the illusion, both
physically and vocally, of the
Queen of Rock 'n Roll.
Over the years, Vest has
received awards and
recognition for her talents and
years of entertaining. She
received the 2005 International
Celebrity Images Award for
Pop 'n Rock-For Reel..-nd the
Best Corporate Event
Performance in 2003. She is
known as the best in the
business and celebrates over
20 years of this thrilling tribute
to Tina Turner.
Vest performs songs from
the early Tina Turner years,
such as, "Proud Mary,"
"Honky Tonk Woman," the
80s "What's Love Got To do
With It," Private Dancer," and
the 90s "Simply The Best," "I
Don't Wanna Fight," and
many more.
Funnyman Christopher
John was born in Queens, New
York. His formative years
were spent with his family on
Long Island. He relocated to
Florida in his early twenties.
The many voices coming from
a young Christopher's
bedroom were thought by his
family to be those of his
friends. Johnr was actually
entertaining himself while
honing his skills of vocal
impressions, mimicking the
sounds coming from his mall
television. He soon realized
that others enjoyed his ability
to impersonate celebrity voices
and John was hooked.
With a cast of characters so
diverse, Christopher John's
audiences are always waiting
with anticipation for his next
impression. John jam packs his
show with an astounding array
of beloved characters, leaving
his audiences standing on their
feet. He basks in the spotlight,
but loves getting up close and
personal, making his fans an
integral part of his show.
Have dinner before the
show at the Lobo Caf6. On the
menu is Fried Chicken or
Roast Beef, mashed potatoes
and gravy, cut corn, French
green beans, French bread,
salad bar, chocolate cake,
choice of any fountain drink,
tea or coffee, $8 including tax.
Dinner is served at 6 p.m. and
reservations are required.

are $14 general admission, $13
seniors and $12 LCCC staff
and students.

Volunteers

Needed to

Protect Rights of

Elders in
Long-Term Care

Facilities
TALLAHASSEE The
SNorth Central Florida Long-
STerm Care Ombudsman
Council, one of 17 local
consumer advocacy councils of
its kind throughout Florida, is
in need of volunteers to serve
the residents of nursing homes,
assisted living facilities and
adult family care homes in
Dixie County.
The Long-Term Care
Ombudsman Program is a
volunteer-based organization
seeking to ensure the health,
safety, welfare, and human and
civil rights of individuals
living in long-term care
facilities throughout Florida.
The program, administered by
the Florida Department of
Elder Affairs, is one of the
largest long-term care
ombudsman programs in the
country and currently has more
than 300 volunteers; however,
with more than 150,000
residents in Florida's long-
term care facilities, the need
for additional volunteers is
critical.
"These volunteers are vital
to the care and protection of
Florida's seniors," said
Department of Elder Affairs'
Secretary Carole Green. "It is
imperative that Floridians
continue to answer the call and
volunteer their time to this
exemplary program."
When an elder is admitted
to a long-term care facility,
federal law mandates that he or
she is given a special set of
residents' rights covering
issues ranging from dignity
and respect to measurable
quality of life and care.
Volunteer ombudsmen who
are trained by the program and
approved by the Department of
Elder Affairs each spend
approximately 20 hours a
month inspecting local
facilities and responding to
residents' individual
complaints to ensure that their
rights are being maintained
and respected.
Residents, family
members, friends and
concerned citizens contact the
program for help in resolving
the issues they face at long-
term care facilities, and
ombudsmen personally visit
the residents in their facilities
to look into their concerns and
provide empowerment and
assistance in resolving them.
"We are fortunate to have
so many dedicated volunteers
throughout the state," said
: State Long-Term Care
-: Ombudsman Brian Lee. "But
: with growing demands, our
: volunteers need help. By
advocating for residents'
: rights, we ensure that they and
their families and loved ones
have peace of mind and enjoy,
an acceptable quality of life."
All program services,
including individualized
response to residents'
concerns, are free and
confidential. A long-term care
ombudsman program exists in
each state throughout the U.S.,
as mandated by the federal
Older Americans Act. Long-
term care facility residents,
family members and Florida
residents interested in
volunteering with a local


council, accessing the
program's services or learning
more about residents' rights
may call toll-free 1-888-831-
0404 or visit

Runners-Up In District
Tournament

Lady Bears End

Season With

Loss To

Keystone

Heights
The DCHS Lady Bears
traveled to Keystone Heights
to play in the Regional
Quarterfinals. The Lady Bears
lacked their usual enthusiasm
on Tuesday night and were
soundly defeated 25-12, 25-11
and 25-17. In the first part of
the third game they showed
signs of making a comeback
and looked more like
themselves but they could not
over come the strong kills by
the Lady Indians.
Last Thursday night they
placed 2nd in the District after
being defeated by PK Yonge.
The ended the season 17-6
which is nothing to slouch
about.... Just wait until next
year!

Dixie Youth Bears End With A Win


By John Kelley
The Youth League Bears ended their
season Saturday in a win over the Trenton
Bucs 20-6. The Bears have struggled all season
but pulled it off during the last game. During
the first half Houston Rhodes recovered a
fumble just short of the goal line as the Bucs
were preparing to score. This recover helped
the Bears to hold the Bucs scoreless
throughout the first quarter.
In the opening minutes of the second
quarter the Bears scored on a three-yard push
by Shaquille Mitchem. Heath Montgomery
booted the extra points and the Bears jump into
the lead 7-0. By the end of the second quarter
the Bears scored again, this time with Mikel
Carter running 50 yards for the touchdown.
The score was 14-0 for the Bears 0 for the
Bucs.
Third quarter action started with the Bears
in possession with "Duke" Dawson bustin up
the middle and running for a 55 yard TD. The


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Martin

UM didn't do the right thing
A week removed from it now, we've had time to
reflect on the ugliness the street brawl of a football
game between Miami and Florida International
University. And the verdict is that the football players .
not only shamed their teams, their schools and their
state, but likewise did the institutions.
I don't agree with some of the outlandish
suggestions I've heard and read since the incident in
the Orange Bowl a week ago after which 31 players
wound up being suspended. Some people are calling
for the cancellation of the season, some even the
dropping of football by both programs.
What does puzzle me, however, is how
'Miami could concede to such light punishment: The
12 one-game suspensions and one of indefinite length for the
player who swung his helmet. This is the equivalent of a night in
the pokey for car-jacking.
FIU's was somewhat stiffer, but not much.
It's one thing for Larry Coker to apologize defend
his program by saying "we've got good kids" something you
would expect of a troubled football coach whose about to lose his
job.
It's quite another for Athletic Director Paul Dee and
President Donna Shalala to sit by clucking as ACC Commissioner
John Swofford issued the one-game slip when they could
have invoked a no-tolerance statement about fighting and
,announced there would be no bowl game for the Hurricanes.
That's what South Carolina and Clemson did two years ago after
their final regular season game broke out in a brawl.
Instead, Miami played without those 13 players
Saturday and nearly lost to winless Duke. A Miami loss would
have almost resolved the bowl issue right there. And perhaps it
would have been poetic justice.
Meanwhile, college football and the state of Florida
have another black eye.
It's time like this when I wonder why the
enforcement arm of the NCAA doesn't step in. It seems the
NCAA is far more interested in punishing a school for buying an
airplane ticket for an athlete to attend his father's funeral than in
actually administering proper justice.

Quick Jump Starts
1. One.day in heaven, there will be no steroids, no fighting
in hockey and football and Florida State will have a running
game.
2. Had the Mets beaten the Cardinals in Game 7, I
could have made the case for Endy Chavez's catch and subsequent
-double-play throw being among the greatest clutch plays in Major
League Baseball post-season history.
3. A pretty good tip that it was a hoax: If you planned to
drop dirty bombs on seven NFL stadiums, would you put in on
some Web site?
4. Kudos to the SEC for admonishing Auburn for the use
of artificially induced scoreboard sound as a weapon against
Florida.
5. Since watching the replay again, I've concluded
that the Chris Leak fumble call vs. Auburn could have easily been
overturned, and maybe should have, but can understand why it
wasn't.

Short Stuff
Urban Meyer is aware that his super-freshman Percy
Harvin only touched the ball once in the second half against
Auburn and "we're going to evaluate that to see if he can touch it
more" ... Going into the weekend games, the Gators were the


Bears were now firmly in control of the field
20-0.

The Bear defense outstanding player of the
game was hard to determine because the whole
line was outstanding, but Daniel "Hollywood"
Thomas seemed to be in on every defensive
play and tackle. Most outstanding hit occurred
at the end of the third quarter when Will "Iron
Will" Kelley tackled the Bucs receiver during
a kickoff return down at the 24 yard line.

The Bucs finally managed to score late in
the fourth, but the Bears had already wrapped
and sealed the package. Coach Hope reminded
the boys that they were not down for the ten
count but rose up to the occasion and showed
that they had class. He told the team "we will
take it to the house next year, WE BELIEVE!"
Good job players, thanks coaches, and most
of all thanks to the parents for another year of
exciting youth football in Dixie County.

to go."

Golden Bears Place 2nd In Division


T-1'


Top to bottom (left to right) The Golden Bears hit the field ready to fight for the District Title. The Bears
Cheerleaders were there to encourage the team and bring spirit to the crowd. The Golden Bear defense
made some great plays like the one shown where the Bear caught the Indian. While the next picture is,
somewhat blurry, we had to put in the only touchdown made by #63. The bottom picture was taken after the
game as the Golden Bears show their pride in being named second in the District! GO GOLDEN BEARS!


By Terri Langford Staff Writer
While I am not known for being a sports writer, I
was given the privilege of covering the Golden Bears
District Playoff Game held last Saturday, October
21st at Branford's Buccaneer Football Field. These
young boys and girls came out with the right attitude
and a heap of BEAR SPRIT & PRIDE!
Defending the title, the Bears hit the field ready
for a tough game as they met the Chiefland Indians
for the second time. The Indians were the only team
that had won over the Bears this season and tension
was high as the Indians wanted to keep their winning
record and the Bears were wanted revenge.
Throughout the hour and half of play, both teams
made fumbles, with the Bears able to recover the
majority of them. The first score was slow to come,
but the Indians put their 6 points on the board first in
the second quarter. The single score remained there
until the 4th quarter when Chiefland made a long run


down the field for their second and final touchdown.
However the Bears were able to keep the Indians
from making both of the extra points.
It wasn't until the last 54.3 seconds of the game
that the Bears were able to score with #63, Clifford
Jackson, running 65 yards for a Bear touchdown!
What a play! It was great to end the game with a high
note, even though in the end Chiefland was named
District Champs.
It was tough to see defeat in the eyes of our
Golden Bears, but it was with great pride that I
watched as they showed extraordinary sportsmanship
as they congratulated the Indians. I know that their
team spirit will come back as they rally next year for
another season of great football and we hear their
cry... "Where are we from...DC!"

Congratulations for a great season!

New US Coast Guard Command, Control &


Communications System,

Dedicated October 26
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. The United
,.States Coast Guard will officially accept and
'dedicate its command, control, and
.communications system, Rescue 21, at a
.:Sector St. Petersburg ceremony at 10 a.m,
Thursday, Oct. 26. The keynote speaker will
be U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young.

The acceptance ceremony highlights the
,"achievement of a milestone in the Coast
,.-Guard's new life-saving and homeland security
communications system. As the Coast Guard
-transitions from a 30-year-old communications
-system to Rescue 21, advanced technology
-provides an array of changes in maritime
communications. Coast Guard crews at Sector
St. Petersburg are working with the Rescue 21
project team and the prime contractor, General
Dynamics C4 Systems, to develop ongoing
upgrades and enhance familiarity with the
Rescue 21 system.

"Given the challenges faced by Coast
Guard crews, especially along the west coast
of Florida, systems capabilities should be good
news across all rescue and maritime homeland
security missions in the coastal area," said
Capt. Dan Abel, Rescue 21 Project Manager.


Rescue 21, To Be


The maritime communications system
includes:
Direction-finding technology that assists
in determining the source of a radio
transmission.
Highly sensitive equipment that reduce
gaps in coastal communications.
Enhanced playback capability to allow
garbled calls to be more easily deciphered.
Interoperability with other law
enforcement agencies and first responders.
A disaster recovery system to provide
temporary communications following a natural
or man-made disaster.
Reception and response to Digital
Selective Calling alerts of boaters in distress.
"The disaster recovery component is
especially pertinent on the west coast of
Florida," said Abel. A $730 million
acquisition project and the second largest
within the Coast Guard, Rescue 21 will replace
the Coast Guard's aging National Distress and
Response System, built during the 1970s.
Once fully implemented, Rescue 21 will cover
95,000 miles of U.S. coastline, navigable
rivers and inland waterways. For more

Dixie County Beach Advisory .
The Dixie Count) Heali' Department is issuing an advisory forghired Island recommending
'Iagainst swimming and other contacts with beach water at this location. This advisory is based on
beach water sampling and analysis conducted on 10/16/06.The beach water quality results do not
meet the criteria for bacteria levels recommended by the United States Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA).
Test Results Table


Sample Date Beach Test Fecal Water Enterococci Water Quality
Site Name Coliform Quality


10/16/06 Shired 2 GOOD 34 MODERATE
Island

Five Week Mean 127.99 Advisory
Exceeded


The Dixie County Health Department began conducting coastal beach water quality weekly monitoring at Shired
Island August of 2000 as a part of the Florida Healthy Beaches Water Quality Program. The water samples are analyzed
for enteric bacteria (both fecal coliform and enterococci) that normally are found in the intestinal tract of humans, animals,
and may come from stormwater runoff, pets, wildlife, or human sewage. Contact with or swallowing of these pollutants
may cause hunian illnesses or rashes, particularly for people who usually get sick. Exposure to the beach water may cause
diarrhea or infections of eyes, nose, throat, or skin.
Water quality categorizations are based upon:
(1) Florida Department of Environmental Protection's adopted Criteria for Surface Water Quality Classification
(Chapter 62-302.530, Florida Administrative Code).
Florida Healthy Beaches Program Categories
Good = 0-199 Fecal coliform per 100 milliliters of marine water
Moderate = 200-799 Fecal coliform per 100 milliliters of marine water
Poor = 800 or more Fecal coliform per 100 milliliters of marine water
(2) United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) recommended criteria.
Florida Healthy Beaches Program Categories
Good = 0-34 Enterococci per 100 milliliters of marine water
Moderate = 35-103 Enterococci per 100 milliliters of marine water
Poor = 104'or more Enterococci per 100 milliliters of marine water
The EPA recommends an "Advisory" be issued when the enterococci level is above the 104 colony forming units per
100 milliliters of water sampled for marine waters. A fecal coliform level above a count of 400, as indicated in the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection's adopted Criteria for Surface Water Quality Classification, indicates that a
warning is to be issued.
The Dixie County Health Department is not aware of any infections caused by swimming or wading in beach water at
this location. We have become aware of the possible risk as a result of the implementation of the Health Beaches Water
Quality Program.
Testing of the beaches is ongoing (weekly) and changes to the status of the water quality will be updated as results
become available. Additional information can be found on our Internet web sites: www.doh.state.fl.us. Once there, click

Oct. 16. Officer Harold Barry was on patrol in
southwest Bradford County when he noticed a
vehicle parked on the side of a rural county road
with its headlights on. Barry continued past the
vehicle for a short distance before turning around.
When Barry returned, the vehicle had pulled into a
ditch with its headlights shining a field. A spotlight
was also being utilized by one of the occupants to
illuminate the field. Barry approached the three
occupants and questioned their activity. The driver
stated the three were just shining for deer. Barry
discovered the three subjects were in possession of a
rifle. Barry cited the 28-year-old Baker County
driver with possession of a gun and light. The rifle
and spotlight were subsequently seized.

CITRUS COUNTY
Officer Doug Loyed was working the Potts
Preserve archery hunt when he received information
about a hunter who might have killed a spotted
fawn. Loyed was able to locate the hunter in the
WMA and check his kill. The subject was in
possession of a spotted fawn and was subsequently
charged with the violation.
Officers Terry Allyn and Kam Johnson continue
to target enforcement of manatee zones with extra
emphasis on the manatee dive boat hot spots.
Numerous zone violation citations were issued.
CLAY COUNTY
Oct. 18, Officers Michael Heath and Cromwell
Letcher were patrolling Camp Blanding Wildlife

An FWC check showed several similar previous
WMA violations in other WMAs throughout the
state. Allen cited the subject for attempting to take
deer during the closed season.
Oct. 18, Officers Travis Cooper and Justin Allen
teamed up with Lt. Roy Williams to make a case. in
reference to illegal night hunting. After watching a
spotlight work an area and the subsequent stop of a
pickup with two individuals in the back, a gun was
found nearby in a ditch. After interviews and going
to a nearby residence, Cooper issued five citations
for attempting to take deer at night with gun and
light, and seized two firearms and two spotlights.
Further charges for possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon and injunction violations are
pending status verification with the Dixie County
State Attorneys Office.
DUVAL COUNTY
Oct. 14, Officer Tim Sweat was off duty and
fishing with his son. He observed another
fisherman catching undersize black drum and
concealing them in the bushes. Sweat observed this
several times. There were no officers out in -the
area, so Sweat contacted Officer Kevin Larson at
home. Larson responded, stopped the individual
and conducted a fisheries inspection. The
individual was found to be in possession of eight
undersize black drum. The individual was cited for
possession of undersize and possession of over-the-
bag limit of black drum.
NASSAU COUNTY
Oct. 13, Officer Tim Sweat checked a fisherman
at Egan's Creek in Fernandina Beach. When asked
about how many fish he had caught, the man stated

Assembly of

Fine Artists

News
We had the best attendance
ever, September 12th, at
Fanning Springs State Park
and had to use the adjoining
two tables as well as Pavilion
No. 1 Most attending were
from other Central Florida
areas dressed for swimming
and we didn't recognize them
at first and wondered who the
energetic persons heading for
our reserved pavilion were.
One of our valued potential
members left in a huff because
there was sand from children's
feet on the benches who had
arrived earlier with their moms
and were swimming... and a
few shells form squirrels
peeling acorns on the tables.
(Shame on those beautiful fat
squirrels! My "Flying Officer"
who flew 65 missions over the
English Channel during World
War Two in a "Spitfire" would
have simply cleaned off the
benches and been happy to be
among we civilians and
"carried on".)
Our fiscal year came to an
end with a change of officers,
but still staying on as directors.
It was decided to only send
newsletters to members or
subscribers.
Those to whom we have
turned the promotion of a
library being established in
Fanning Springs still under the
umbrella of AFA are
enthusiastic. Discussion with
those we are working with on a
Senior Center in Old Town
continues very favorable (I'm
planning to turn my electric
typewriter over for the use as
the first material donation. Do
you think tapes will still be
available?) Our past Vice
President has promised to
teach seniors how to use the
computers once we have been
able to obtain some for the
Senior Center. We hope to also
have exercise equipment as
Cross City has.
I expect our October
meeting to take place at 74 SE
870 St., Old Town, FL, a local
restaurant or a private home.
Watch your local
newspaper for date, place, and
time. (We were all having such
a beautiful time and swim at
the park that we failed to cover


the issue. If I have anything to
say about it, we'll meet at Hart
Springs!) Carry on!
Respectfully,
Barbara Moore

American

Legion News
While Wayne is away this
weekend attending the American
LegIion Fall Conference, I am
going to brielly post a few
reminders to our members and the
comIIImuinities of' Post 149 in
Newberrv and Post 91in Trenton.
Hopefully. when he returns next
week he'll have some news from
our Department of Florida to share
with us.
All members of Post 149 are
reminded that their General
Membership meeting will be on
November 7th at 7 pm. Your
attendance is encouraged to
discuss and vote on the raising of
membership dues due to the
increase announced by our
National Organization. Also, I
understand that a couple of minor
changes to the unit bylaws are in
need of your attention and you
should come out and hear about
them, voice your opinion and cast
your vote.
Post 91 met in General
Membership on October 19th and
voted to increase their annual dues
to $30. per year. When you think
about all the legion does for our
veterans, that's a bargain at today's
costs.
The primary purpose of the
American Legion is to attend to
our disabled veterans. In addition,
legionnaires become involved
with numerous projects
surrounding holidays throughout
the year. The American Legion
has asked that posts consider
involving themselves with
supporting our active duty
personnel through a program
know as AdoptaPlatoon Soldier
Support Effort. This year the
Auxiliary and Post 91 have
decided to support this worthwhile
program by making and filling
Christmas stockings. I am happy
to report that the Auxiliary had a
workday on Saturday and
produced 25 Christmas stockings
ready for this year's mailing to our
troops. We are proud to be able to
give something to our soldiers
who are serving to let them know
that we care, especially at this
time of year. Congratulations
President Miriam Stroupe and all
the ladies who pushed to get this
important project done. The
stockings will be packed and
mailed out in the next week. Great
job!
Friday, November 10, 2006,
Trenton will have a Veterans Day
Parade. The Gilchrist County
Historical Society has agreed to
provide hamburgers and hot dogs
immediately following the parade
Sat the Trenton Train Depot. This
year our Grand Marshal will be
former US Army soldier and
Purple Heart recipient Candace
May. As many of you know, she
was injured in the war in Iraq and
we are so very pleased and
honored to have her be part of our
parade in honor of our veterans.
Be a part of that parade to honor
our Nation's Veterans. If your
church, other civic organization or
school wants to have a presence or
a float in the Parade, contact
Major Stroupe at the Gilchrist
County Veterans Service Office,
1 352-463-3188, from Monday
through Thursday to see what you
. can do. Lineup for the parade will
- be at 9 AM in the Trenton High
School parking lot. Make this a
community parade to tell our
Veterans how proud we are of
their service to our Nation.
Post 91 has the distinction to
open the Down Home Days
celebration, November 11llth,
Veterans Day at AM. Be at the

Springhouse Quilter's News


White Ford Joins Ford Motor Company In Raising
Funds For Breast Cancer Awareness & Research
Harvest Festival .,


Faith Stanton holds a quilt she made using large circle
templates from the Drunkard's Path.
There are so many things that quitters can do to make small
and large quilts using their imagination and by either enlarging or
decreasing the size of a pattern. One of the older patterns known
in all quilting circles is the Drunkard's path. This pattern can be
used to make over 50 different quilting blocks which when
viewed in the various blocks is hard to believe that one pattern
can be adapted so many times. This is a great pattern to use to
learn to quilt since it teaches a quilter how to get curves properly
set into a quilt pattern. This is one of the patterns Springhouse
uses in the beginning quilting class.
The beginning quilting classes or usually held in the early
spring each year and for 2007 is now being planned for those new
members needing a class. The teachers are all members of
Springhouse and have great experience in making the different
quilt blocks.
I The November regular monthly meeting of Springhouse will
be held on November 14 beginning at 9:00 AM for the day group
and at 6:45 PM for the night group. Gloria Sutton is teaching the
October workshop.
Several Springhouse members attended the White Springs
Quilt Show held last week in White Springs. They all reported
they had a great time and enjoyed seeing so many quilts from area
quilters.
For those that might be interested in joining Springhouse
Quilters for 2007 and would like information about the classes,
they may call or contact Anna Gilliam, 463 7922, or Lois Scott,
463 2207.

(NAPS)-If you're looking
for a little extra flavor,
adding nuts is not a nutty
idea. Whether slivered,
sliced, roasted, blanched or
whole natural, almonds add
enough flavor, texture and
sophistication to help turn
many traditional dishes into
haute cuisine. Eating a one-
ounce handful of almonds
every day as part of a
healthy lifestyle can help
lower cholesterol without
weight gain. For more infor-
mation and recipes, visit

from the 1800's. Fanning Spring Mayor Carol
McQueen was excited to be able to show the
results of nearly ten years of planning, raising
funds and finally the construction of one of our
areas important historical spots.

Among those in attendance were Fanning
Springs Council Members, Commissioners from
Dixie, Levy, and Gilchrist County, State &
Federal Park Service Representatives, Levy
County Historical Society members, Lancaster
Correctional Institute representatives and Scott
Koon of the North Florida Regional Planning
Council (NFRPC).
Koon gave much credit to the elected
officials and residents of City of Fanning
Springs for taking on the project. "It is
important that we preserve the past and honor
those that made history through trials and
tribulations," stated Koon. "NFRPC is glad that
*.we were able to be a part 'of this project," he
,added.
McQueen stated that in addition to
preserving the areas' rich history, she and the
City Council hope that Ft. Fanning and the two
trails, Wilderness and Nature Coast, help with
the area's economy. She also stated that she
was proud that the land will continue to be used
to tell the history of Fanning Springs and the
part they played in the Second Seminole Indian
War.
During the late 1700's and early 1800's
there were several Seminole villages in our area
along the Suwannee River. While the Indians
wished only to co-exists with the new settlers, as
time went by tension grew and war declared by
both parties.

General Andrew Jackson commissioned a
fort to be built along the Suwannee's river banks
in an area called "Palmetto", now Fanning
Sprinlas, In 1788 the fort was re-named Fort
Fanning in honor of its commander, Colonel
Alexander Campbell Wilder Fanning.
During the Seminole Wars Fort Fanning was
burned down twice. On March 23, 1849, the
Fort was abandoned about a month after it had
been deactivated by the US military.
Little is left of the original fort, portions of
two of the square gateposts which were hand
selected field stones can be seen on the Fort
Fanning trail that is located behind the business
district of Fanning Springs. During an
archeological study of -the area, several water
cisterns were found as well as some of the
original stockade posts.
Project Manger, Joe Mittauer and Engineer
Rob Zammataro were also on hand to answer
questions regarding the project. Mittauer stated
that it took only six months to complete the
construction phase of the project once all the
funding was received. "These projects are nof
cheap," Mittauer noted.
The approximate 7-acre site was funded by
the Florida Community Trust Preservation
2000 Grant in the amount of 1.2 million dollars.
Additional-funding was found through grants
from the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection Florida Recreation Development
Assistances Program ($400,000 ) and 70,000
from a Community Development Block Grant.
An additional $100,000 has been applied for
to complete the projects plans of a trailhead
which will complete the connection between the
Wilderness Trail to Fort Fanning, to the Nature
Coast Trail. The phase of the project will be
overseen by the Department of Transportation
and *Suwannee River Water Management
District.
After the ribbon cutting, guests were able to
venture around the park and its trails and enjoy a
lunch provided by the City of Fanning Springs.

Letter To The Editor
We have had just filed our annual report and affidavit with the State
offlorida.
A few days later we entered into serious discussion arriong the
members, directors and public at large.
Kindly read and print Our letter to the regular and consumer services
director at the office of Charles Bronson to thereby help inform the
public that establishing a Library at Fanning Springs will no longer be
under the umbrella of Assembly offmc Artists of North Central Florida.
Respectfully,
Barbara C.R. Moore, President
Charles 11. Bronson, Commissioner
Regulatory and Consumer Services
2005 Apalachee Pkwy.
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-6500

Dear Sir:
Please be hereby informed that:
We will no longer be sponsoring the establishment of a library in*the
city of Fanning Springs within the County of Gilchrist.
Fhis is the only change in our Mission Statements.
Enclosed herewith is a copy of the Petition that we started circulatirig
June 4, 2004 collection 31 signatures per sheet. Many of the sheets re
still out.
We are continuing to plan establishing a Senior Center in the Dixie
County Old Town Section. We have discussed this with Miss Terry at
Live Oak and she has sanctioned our efforts.
We will not attempt to establish another library within Dixie County,
as we believe that a library on the east side of Suwannee River, mainly in
the City of Fanning Springs would serve our purpose for conveniences.
Hopefully, retiring Mayor, Carol McQueen, will reserve space within, the
library she has, quote: "started to work with others" to establish, will
reserve space where artists can exhibit their artwork (possibly within.the
building I informed her last January that we had several discussions Nith
the owner about purchasing for a library/senior center. McQu'een
inquired the price. (I believe Mrs. McQueen to still be a real estate broker
at the time, and was surprised that she did not know the potential
availability.)
Be that as it may, Mrs. McQueen is very accomplished in bringing
about what she has in mind, to competition. The non-members who had
become involved with Assembly of Fine Artists in establishing a library
in Fanning Springs and the directors of AFA have determined that we
will step aside and let Mrs. McQueen proceed with both her experience
in these matters and with her associates, for the good of the public.
Very truly yours,
Barbara CR Moore, President

| How Can The Social Security D ability SpedakstAt Integrated Family Services Help You?

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

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2006


Hay Fever .-N ..
Season In
Dixie County m4 TA
This year is an especially
bad one for hay fever
sufferers. Dixie County in
recent weeks has been low
on rain which would have
helped to put down the .
pollen. Instead, dry weather
and casual breezes have .. .
taken the tiny ragweed '
"dust" into the nasal --. ". .,
passages of hundreds of ,
hacking, sniffling victims.
Physicians are reporting
unusually high numbers of
patients complaining of hay -
fever symptoms. -
Ragweed, any of several
weedy species of the This ragweed can be found off of SR 349 in Old Town.
Ambrosia genus, counts as
the primary cause of hay fever in Florida. Goldenrod is often blamed but is innocent, its pollen too
large to cause the teary eyes, sniffles, wheezing, coughs, sore throats ETC that earmark the hay
fever allergy syndrome. Ragweed includes smaller, two foot shrubs and giants over six feet such
as some of the specimens growing along Old Town's SR 349. When Progress Energy's new
power poles went in, considerable roadside clearing was necessary. Unfortunately ragweed loves
disturbed land and it moved in, taking advantage of the opportunity and is in full bloom (tiny,
greenish-yellow buds) at the present time. Each ragweed bush can produce more than a billion
pollen grains which may be distributed on air currents for over a hundred miles.
Ragweed season runs from early September well into Fall but can be abruptly terminated by an
early frost. Unfortunately, severe cases of hay fever can lead to respiratory infections that are
worse than mere allergic reactions. Asthma sufferers especially should avoid exposure to ragweed
pollen.

THE NATURE BEAT


You Can Grow
Daffodils In
Our Area
The second in a series of
garden related programs will
be presented in Fanning
Springs on Monday, October
30, 2006 at 7 p.m. Linda Van
Beck, past president of the
Florida Daffodil Society, will
give a program on successfully
growing beautiful daffodils in
our area without forcing them.
These programs are being
sponsored by the Florida
Federation of Garden Clubs,
Inc.
The first meeting last
month on cracker roses was a
great success. All those who
attended have a special
invitation to return and bring a
friend. The meeting will
again be in the building behind
the Cadillac Motel off Hwy 19.
Mrs. Van Beck will bring
some packages of 5 bulbs to
sell for $5.25. The program
will be very interesting and
educational. Remember this
will be the Monday after the
time rolls back on Sunday so
7:00 can slip up on you. The
public is welcome.
For more information,
contact Joan Pryor, phone
(352)542-2211 or email
