;By Terri Langford
-Last week the Tri-County Marine Corps held its annual Toys For Tots gift drive. Volunteers
prepared to help 2,000 boys and girls in the Tri-County area have a wonderful Christmas. This year,
the volunteers, individuals and businesses truly out did themselves as work began early in the year to
make the annual event successful.
S"This year we received not only more items, but better quality of toys," stated Pat Arcadia,
Coordinator of the Drive. "We can't begin to thank the community and businesses enough for all
they do."
Pat noted one of their big fundraisers for the past several years has been the Nature Coast Toys
PFor Tots Bike Run, headed by Bill Hutch and the late Tom "Barney" Fife. This year's run was held
o.< November 18 h; sadly Barney Fife was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident just a few weeks
after the run. We would like to dedicate this year's drive to Barney. He will be missed by his family,
mrifany friends and all the children he has helped through the years.


By Terri Langford
As we prepare to close out
2006, we begin to reflect on
the issues and events over the
past year that most affected our
families and communities. It
was a year of growth and
political change...a year that
lacked any hurricanes reaching
landfall...and a year that
brought Dixie County into the
national limelight.
January brought us two
fatalities, on January Is Scott
Alan Knight, 35 of Homosassa
died after being hit while
trying to cross US 19. On
January 23rd, Edward
Raymond Ogle, 63 of
Gainesville died in a boating
accident while he and a friend
were fishing on the
Steinhatchee River.
In January the Dixie
County Board of County
Commissioners voted to raise
the Impact Fee for new
construction. The
Commissioners were careful to
weigh all their options before
making their final decision for
the increase; almost a year of
research and special meetings.-
In the end they,
(Commissioners) knew part of
their responsibly to the citizens
is to ensure that the county is
financially able to conduct the
county's business, which
includes services that will be
covered by the impact fee.
With continued growth, the
Commissioners felt that those
causing the growth should
have to pay their fair share in
increased costs to the county
for services they will need
provided for them.
Vandalism of county parks
became a problem in 2006.
Damage estimates were in the.
thousands of dollars and
Commissioners have tried to
hire attendants to live on the
park premises. It truly is a
shame those measures will
need to be to be taken, however, it is
the only way to ensure that the


taxpayers' investments are
protected and that they will be
able to continue to enjoy the
facilities built for them and
their families. At Turner Point
Boat Ramp a volunteer citizens
group was formed in order to
protect their park. The Turner
Point Boat Ramp work was
completed during the summer,
while renovations occurred
throughout the county in other
parks, including dredging at
Hinton Landing Boat Ramp.
Dredging was also a big
issue in Horseshoe. In late
January, Congressman Allen
Boyd met with residents of
Horseshoe concerning the
main channel (also known as
Horseshoe Cove) and inter-
canals, both of which were in
dire need of dredging.
Funding to dredge the two
perimeter canals, Rim and the
Main canal, had already been
secured, however, residents
were able to show a need for
the .main channel and inter-
canals to also be dredged.
With crews already set up in
the area, costs to continue
dredging in the other areas of
needs would be greatly
reduced.
Boyd announced in June
that he was able to secure $2.5
million to dredge Horseshoe
Cove with the passes of the
Energy and Water
Appropriations Act (HR 5427).
The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers used the funding to
return the Cove to its
authorized depth.
Laina Moyer won the title
of 2005-2006 District Spelling
Bee Champion. The winning.
word was ''t-a-n-t-a-l-i-z-e"
and Laina went on to represent
Dixie in the Regional Spelling
Bee in Tallahassee the
following month. 2006-2007
District Spelling Bee Winner
hopefuls will vie for the title
on January 8th, 2007 at Old
Town Elementary School.
Good luck to you all!

Horseshoe Man Faces


Numerous Theft


Charges
By Terri Langford '
Bobby Nicholas Ricchiuti,
21, of Horseshoe Beach was
arrested on December 18, 2006
on a number of charges
relating to thefts that occurred
in the Town of Horseshoe
Beach.
According to a report filed
by the Dixie County Sheriffs
Office, Ricchiuti has been
linked to three burglaries with
the first being reported on
December 10th, 2006. Officers Bobby Nicholas Richiuti
were dispatched to Second Avenue West where a storage shed had
been pried open with approximately $1,300. worth of items taken.
On December 16'h, 2006, another report of stolen items was
called into the DSO. The victim stated that a number of coins,
valued at $100. were taken from a family member's home.
Charges continued to be added to Ricchiuti's offenses with a
burglary reported on December 20th, 2006 after a couple living in
Ocala came to their vacation residence in Horseshoe, discovering
numerous items, such as fishing gear, missing from their shed.
Ricchiuti was arrested and charged with 1 count of Burglary of
a Residence, 3 counts of Dealing in Stolen Property, and 1 count of
Grand Theft.
As of Friday, December 22nd, Ricchiuti remained in custody at
the Dixie County Jail. Bond was set at $100,000.
Sheriff's Investigators noted additional charges are pending.
To date, the DSO recovered approximately $4,000. worth of items
taken from the 3 homes.


The first woman to serve as,
a judge in the Third Judicial
Circuit Court, Leandra
Johnson, was sworn in.
Johnson took the oath of
office, administered by Retired
Appellate court Judge Arthur
Lawrence on January 20th,
2006.
February began with the
sad news of the death of 18-
year-old Christopher M.
Abare, who was killed in a
single vehicle accident at the
intersection of CR 351 and SR
349. Abare's passengers both
received serious injuries, and
continue to recover.
Dixie/Taylor
Commissioners began a series
of workshops concerning
water, sewer and boat ramp
issues for Steinhatchee and
Jena. It would later be decided
by the Taylor Commissioners
that they would "go it alone"
and began plans for the
construction of a boat ramp on
the Taylor side of the
Steinhatchee River. Dixie
Commissioners also have
begun work on the boat ramp
issue and would later purchase
property in the Jena area that
will be used for parking for use
at the existing Jena Boat
Ramp, located on the Dixie
side of the river.
Water and sewer issues are
being handled between the
Steinhatchee Water
Association (SWA), a private
not for profit corporation, and
the Dixie Commissioners. In
September 2006, after months
of negotiations and fine tuning,
the Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners signed
an agreement with the SWA to
provide water and sewer for
the unincorporated Township
of Jena. While new
development will be required
to hook to the new system,
existing residents will have the
choice as to whether they want
SWA to provide service to
them.
Earlier this month, SWA
and the Dixie Board held a
special workshop, giving
Commissioners and the public
an opportunity to review
SWA's progress in acquiring
additional funding for possible
future projects throughout
Dixie. More on that as it
unfolds...
Another fatality is reported
in February. Jimmie R.
Connell, 79, of Old Town,
passed away from injuries
sustained in an accident that
occurred on January 21st on US
19 when his truck overturned.
In February, John Thomas
Crossley was found guilty on
four counts of sexual battery
on two young girls under the
age of 12. Crossley is one of
many sexual offenders in Dixie
County. In October of 2006,
the Dixie County Sheriff's
Office mailed out a bulletin
with the names and pictures of
the 54 sexual offenders that are
registered in Dixie County.
The statistics of these types of
crimes are alarming and
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher has
vowed to continue to notify
citizens of these offenders.
On a brighter note,
February brought the crowning
of the DCHS Sweethearts &
Kings. The 2006 Valentine
Queen is Miss Lacy Johnson
and her King, Brett Mathis.
Princess Courtney Squires and
Prince Jacob Land also shared
in the spotlight.
Mr. Clifford Clark, Sr.
celebrated his 105th Birthday!
That is.. 1,260 months, 5,460
weeks, 38,351 days, 920,424
hours, 55,225,440 minutes and
3,313,526,400 seconds! It was
a wonderful celebration of a
wonderful man.

Who'll be on the ticket in '08?
It would be nice if we could start off the New Year with some
encouraging signs on the political front. All right, the presidential
election won't take place for about 22 months, but the candidates are
already lining up, dropping out, and generally making the customary
political moves.
Senator Hillary Clinton has been the Democrats' front-runner for
most of the past six years, maybe longer. Her success in running for
the Senate from a state of which she was not actually a resident (Did
you ever think sophisticated New Yorkers would elect an Arkansas
hillbilly gal?) came about despite the fact that it was pretty clear that
a Senate seat was intended as a stepping-stone to the presidency.
Hillary is in her second Senate term and prior to that was an
unofficial partner in a co-presidency with her husband, so she can't
be shot down for lack of experience. However even many of her
staunchest supporters will concede that she lacks Bill's charisma,
and those who've been around her when the cameras aren't rolling
are inclined to think of her as being a bit abrasive. That could prove
to be a big negative on the campaign trail.
Illinois Senator Barak Obama is definitely the rising star in the
Democrats' presidential picture, however he's been in the Senate
only two years, with some previous experience as a state legislator.
He is well-received by his audiences and he definitely has
presidential ambitions. However, he doesn't have much of a track
record-on the other hand, that could prove to be an advantage.
Put Hillary and Barak on the same ticket and it would be a pretty
sure vote-getter, but there's no chance that Hillary would accept the
number two spot. Obama, being younger and with less political
mileage (and baggage) might figure he could serve eight years as VP
arid then "inherit" his party's nomination in 2016. The problem with
that is, vice-presidents tend to be likely losers in that situation.
(Consider Nixon in 1960, Humphrey in 1968, Ford in 1976,
Mondale in 1984, Gore in 2000....) Bush the elder got elected for
one term in 1988, but that was largely due to Reagan's popular
image. Don't count on Hillary having that going for her after eight
years in the top slot.
: The Republican front-runner appears to be John McCain, a
credible war hero and veteran Senator from Arizona; but the
McCain-Feingold bill restricting political speech is a glaring
example of government interference, he's unwilling to take a hard
line against illegal immigration and he opposes expanding domestic
oil exploration. He's moderate-to-conservative on most of the social
issues, and favors a heads-up approach to foreign policy.
SMcCain's most conspicuous rival is former New York Mayor
Rudy Giuliani, who seems to be pretty much of the same mind as
McCain on illegal immigration and foreign policy. He tries to sound
like a moderate on Second Amendment issues, but as NYC Mayor
he;was totally supportive of the city's extraordinarily restrictive gun
laws. He is also pro-abortion and pro-gay rights, which won't help
him with the GOP base.
A lot of conservatives would like to see former House Speaker
Newt Gingrich enter the fray, and in fact he might. He did show a
strong capacity for leadership when he organized the "Contract With
America" which led his party to control of Congress in 1994, and he
certainly can't be saddled with all the blame for the way the GOP
squandered its mandate; however, any opponent would certainly
dwell on that issue, as well as some controversies in which he was
involved while Speaker. Newt's conservative credentials are pretty
good, but his lack of an altogether positive personal image could be
a serious problem in a national election.
In other words, there's no John F. Kennedy and no Ronald
Reagan in the running, and at this point it's not looking too likely
that there's going to be by November, 2008.

discuss the company's successful safety program and to award several employees with various
prizes.
During the dinner, employees enjoyed a catered meal of bar-b-que chicken and pork, heard a
wonderful sermon from First Baptist of Perry Pastor Eddie Blalock, received prizes, and learned of
the company's safety status.
"Each year at Suwannee Lumber Company the safety program continues to improve and make
changes to perpetuate safety," said Suwannee Lumber Company CEO Frank B. "Bump" Faircloth.
"Safety is the number one priority at Suwannee Lumber Company and will continue to be that."
Faircloth and Suwannee Lumber Company President Daniel Dickert expressed the importance of
safety to employees and informed them of the many departments that went accident-free in 2006.
"Let's continue to work
safely and go accident-free A '. .

Another award distributed during the dinner was Employee of the Year. This year's honored
employee is Anthony Boggess.
"This is a prestigious award," Faircloth said before announcing Boggess' name. "He has stood
out among his peers, and'gone above and beyond what's required."
Although the award only goes to one employee, Faircloth thanked all of the employees for their
outstanding hard work and dedication as well.
"All of you make the difference," Faircloth said. "It's the people that make up a company. It isn't
the CEO, or the president, or the management team-it's the people."

new and used merchandise to

anyone willing to sort them'
out.
In late November the
Clarks began selling Christmas

So Merry Christmas Gary:

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
"hlie bastard son"
Continued from last week. 1, the day of the Lord, say let us see something of the CH ILDREN OF GOD. I low
loosely we have used that term. Any church member, or church attendant calls himself a child of God. Yet we
know there is ABSOLUTELY NO SPIRITUAL PURPOSE IN THEIR LIVES. We find multitudes of children,
brought forth in one manner or another, filling the churches, but we can discern no spiritual purpose or destiny in
their lives.
the theday of the Lord, say they feel they are saved from hell and the devil and some day they will go to

heaven, but now they have nothing to do but wait for the coming of the Lord, and in heaven they will have nothing
to do but dance, sing and shout throughout all eternity. Yet they have no conception of eternity. They are children
BORN ENTIRELY WITHOUT A PURPOSE, or in the language of this article, they are bastard children.
I, the day of the Lord, say these children cannot help their condition, neither can they do anything about it. The
church that was responsible for bringing them forth, took no forethought as to why they would bring these
children into being. Basically in all probability it was to increase the population of the church. But mostly they
"just happened" They were the result of a "revival", or maybe r maybe of someone "leading them to Christ." True, there
was the thought behind these actions that all these people would be brought to a better way of life, but there was
no thought taken as to what would they be doing in the eternal plans of God, not only for time, but for the ages of
the ages and on into eternity itself. In this we find the purposes of God.
1, the day of the Lord, say but this is not true with a real child of God. Or a child begotten by God for a
specific purpose, to fulfill a definite need and place in the economy of God. A particular son for a particular work.
A child brought forth with a definite work in mind and that child then trained and brought into the highest ability
to accomplish the work for which it was brought into being.
I, the day of the Lord, say but may we please understand and remember this. The spiritual birth of this child IN
NO WAY depends upon the physical birth of the child. That is, the reason or lack of a reason for which God
brings it to a spiritual birth for His work. By that we mean that an entirely legitimate son of any married couple
may be a son born without a purpose as related to the purposes of God. On the other hand, a son that is born to an
unmarried couple, or as we commonly say an illegitimate or bastard son may be a son BORN FOR A PURPOSE
in the purposes of God. God is not bound by natural reasons. He works according of his will. Continued next
week.


The Word Made

Flesh
Mark, Number & Name of
the Beast
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say let us again
look at Ezekiel 1:10. Notice again
the faces of these living heavenly
creatures. They FOUR had THE
FACE OF A MAN; THE FACE
OF A LION; THE FACE OF AN
Ox and THE FACE OF AN
EAGLE. Everyone of them had
FOUR FACES in himself. We
could stop right there and move
into the ministry that is to come to
pass in our day, and here is what
you would find. Revelation,
Chapters 5 & 6, tell of the book of
life being opened for us in our
time. It tells of the seals that had
this book sealed. As the first four
$eals of this book were opened,
FOUR HORSES came out of
Heaven. The four horses came
from the presence of the FOUR
BEASTS that were in the throne
of Heaven, and around the throne
of Heaven.
I, the son of man, say in
Revelation 4:6-8 were FOUR
beasts full of eyes before and
behind, and they had faces. The
living creatures in the Book of
Ezekiel, Chapter 1, verses 5 & 10,
had FOUR faces in each creature.
Fere in Revelation 4, verse 7, the
scripture teaches us that each beast
.has ONEE FACE in himself. When
.the beast was seen coming out of
Heaven he came in the form of a
horse. This is showing by symbol
'(type) how fast evil or Satan can
'move in the earth (people). The
`horse is used here to show power
:and speed. As each horse came out
of Heaven, he had a spiritual face
that could be seen. The first was
like a lion. The second was like a
calf. The third was like a man. The
fourth was like a flying eagle. We
-are going to stop here and look at
'these faces, and see what each
'face tells us LION, CALF,
MAN, and EAGLE. We are right
'in the working of all. This is hard
,to believe and accept, especially
among the Protestant faith. This is
because so many have been taught
wrong about the Bible and the
Book of Revelation. As we look at
'the face of the first beast, coming
as a white horse, there was the
face of a lion showing in this first
beast.
I, the son of man, say there are
men today that act like lions, they
preach like lions. These men have
lion-like natures, and in many
cases are very dominating. You
can see this commanding
domination spirit in many of our
'denominational churches. Certain
church organizations of our time
go as far as to say, WE are the
church. And you have to believe
that WE (they) are the church, or
WE (they) will not ordain you as
:one of OUR (their) ministers. You
can't legally (according to their
bylaws) belong to the group
-(church) except you believe and
-obey their bylaws (rules of the
,church). Dominating LION-LIKE
NATURES. Please stay up with
me each week. Continued next
week.

Ruth Rains Students Voice Their Views

On Ten Commandment Issue


Several weeks ago, a group
of 8th grade students from Ruth
Rains Middle School visited
the Dixie County Courthouse
and were invited to ask County
Judge Fred Koberlein
questions. Several of the
students, Ariel Neiss-13 and
Rachel Griffis-14, were asked
o. read their essays concerning
the issue of having the Ten
Commandments on the
courthouse steps. These young
-men and women were
challenged by their teachers
-and did an amazing job.
Ariel Neiss's essay was
*considered to be the best,
getting high praises from her
teachers and Judge Koberlein.
The following is Ariel's
essay...


Pictured left to right: (standing) Judge Fred Koberlein, Lindsey Burns,
Candace Evans; (sitting) Ariel Neiss and Rachel Griffis.


friends. The word would be spread, that we can make
our country even better, and who doesn't want that?
People would become aware that for too many people
do not follow the Commandments, and they would
realize what a much more wonderful place this
country would be if[ they spread the word and more
people followed these laws. These thoughts would
encourage them to tell everyone else of the problems
that could be solved by.following the Commnandments.
Secondly. I believe that people would actually
follow the Commandments if they saw them on a
building as important as the court house. Think about
how wondefiul our country would become. Thee
would be no murder, or at the very least, a lot less
murders. Also, if people wouldn't get jealous of
others there would be less fighting, and wars. I'm
positive this would do the whole world good. There's
more though, much more. There would not be as
many broken (divorced) families, with kids goring
form one home to another. America could become a
greater place, with less fighting, murder, and broken
families. This country may be on top for now, but if
people do not do something about it, we're going to
fall behind everyone in a few years. I don't know
about you, but that knowledge scares me senseless!
So what's it going to be? Do you think Dixie
should keep the Commandments? (Although it's
probably not up to us.) I do, and I hold to my opinion
strongly. Think about it, there is nothing negative in
the Ten Commandments. In fact, the Commandments
are good basic laws that everyone, not just
Christians, should follow, and respect. I believe that
this community and this country can greatly benefit
from leaning, and keeping to heart, the Lord's Ten
Commandments. The Commandments would open
everyone's eyes to problems within this country, and
many people would begin to follow these laws,
greatly impacting the land of the free. I want
everyone to follow the Commandments, we could use
the help.
After all, isn't the U.S.A.'s motto, "In God We
Trust"?


Congratulations Ariel, for a job well done, and to all the students who participated in this hands-
on study of our government.

around Washington.


Dixie Education Foundation, Inc. hosted its
annual meeting at the library on Monday,
November 20th. This event showcases the past
year of events and finances of the Foundation.
President Arthur Bellot shared with the group
just how the Foundation had grown since 1998
when $,9800 was awarded in scholarship. The
2006 amount was $63,650 and represented 103
scholarships to graduating DCHS seniors. The
mission statement reflects a goal of providing
educational assistance; the Foundation has been
able to also assist with teacher "mini-grants".
Two such grants that were provided by
CITIGROUP financial group were awarded to
two teacher teams foir classroom projects. On
hand to accept the check for Dunnam/Baxter
team was Sue Dunnam. Sue shared a bit about
the centers their team will establish for Old
Town kindergarten students. The other team was
comprised of Whittington and Byroade, each
receiving $534.43.
Guest Rosemary Flagler, Community
Relations Office for Progress Energy was in
attendance and graciously presented certificates
in the amount of $1,250.00 each to eight Dixie
School District employees for teacher
certifications and degrees. Bobbie Joyce Lamar
spoke for the group, saying "this money has
made it possible for me to become a teacher,
and I thank Progress Energy and the Foundation
for this opportunity". She further stated that now
she has raised her children, it is now "my time"
and I am truly grateful.
Kathryn McInnis reported that there are
currently 40 mentors and 28 mentees in the
Take Stock in Children program in Dixie
County, and is excited to report that five more
students will be signed shortly. Dixie has been

a part of the TSIC program since 1999 and is
thankful to LCCC and the LCCC Foundation for
making the dream of college a reality for many
students, who are the first in their families to
attend college.
Carol West gave a brief presentation
regarding the financial status of the Foundation,
and thanked the many faithful donors and those
who support the organization with their time and
donations. In fact the DEF has the lowest
operating budget of any foundation in the state.
The Foundation members extend their thanks to
Mrs. Anne Hodges, who reviews the
bookkeeping and prepares the annual tax return.
Also thanks to the School Board for providing
funds for the annual audit.
President Bellot shared the many ways that
individuals, families or groups can support
educational opportunities for Dixie County
students. A scholarship in honor or memory can
be created; a bequest made through a will;
property or securities can be donated. A new
MEMBERHIP opportunity was announced at
the event. For $20.00 per year anyone can
become a member/supporter of the Foundation
efforts. Just contact a board member of officer
for information. Look for more information to
be available soon about Foundation
Membership.
The final portion of the program was the
installation of officers and directors for 2006-
2007, which was performed by Judge Fred
Koberlein. Many thanks to Ted Boorum for his
technical assistance and to the members who
provided refreshments. The Foundation meets
the 2nd Tuesday of each month, at noon, in the
office of the County Coordinator, and is open to
the public.

DEF Holds Annual Meeting


"Thou Shalt Not...Have The 10 Commandments
on your Court House Steps?"
Thou shalt not.... who could guess that the Lord's
Ten Commnandments would ever bring any trouble in
Dixie County? I certainly never did, but that changed
once the placement of the Commandments on our
court house steps caused uproar of commotion.
According to the laws that make this country
great, no government can show favor to any
particular religion. Almost everyone knows that. but
maybe it's hard for a God-feiaring person to turn
away from the problems within this great country. I
can understand why the government should not
support any one particular religion. It makes sense
seeing that the diversity of the country is massive. The
thing is though, is it's really bad to place the Lord's
laws, in which God wants us to follow, on the court
house steps? I mean, I don't understand why it's so
wrong. Everyone should follow the Ten
Commandments, and yet in today's world even many
Christians don't do so. Honestly, I think that the Tenm
Commandments would make this community, and this
country, a much better place. I have many reasons for
this opinion. First, is that I think having the Ten
Commandments on the court house will help to
people's eves to the problems this country is currently
facing. Also, I think that the Ten Commandments
would help to bet people to follow them, and learn
right from wrong better. These are just a few of myn
reasons.
T begin with, I believe that having the Ten
Commandments on the court house will help people
to realize that there are problems in this country, the
land of the free. One of the Commandments is 'Thou
shalt not murder.' Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't
that against the law? If people would drive by the
court house and see the Commandments, maybe
they'll try and convince others to follow them. They
might have a positive impact on our society. Another
of the Ten Commandments is 'Thou shalt not commit
adultery,' which in my opinion, should be a crime.
People who know the Commandments could tell their

"REVIEW"
Continued from page IA


Pictured above is the granite monument that was placed on the Dixie County Courthouse steps in November
of 2006. Inscribed on the monument are the Ten Commandments which have caused some controversy,


which will pour over into the new year
In March, renovations
began at the Dixie County
Courthouse. Construction on
the 2,000 square-foot addition
cost approximately
$450,000.00 with monies for
the project coming from a
special appropriations fund
through the Judicial Small
County Courthouse Funding.
While the addition was
completed this past summer,
and offices moved, contractors
are still putting on the final
touches. Word has it that the
project should be finished the
first of January 2007.
The 2006 Suwannee River
Fair was held the second week
in March. While Gilchrist and
Levy dominated the fair,
Dixie's Korey VanAernam still
brought home the Fat Steer
Grand Champion Honors.
Seventeen-year-old Judson
Wayne Walker of Old Town
was fatally injured in an
accident that occurred on
Saturday, March 11, 2006 on
US 19.
Former Advocate Editor,
Sid Dosh, was accidentally
shot in the chest while trying
to kill a snake at his Cross City
home on March 9th, 2006. The
community, whom he
embraced while living and
working here in Dixie, was
shocked when the news broke
several months later that Sid
died suddenly on May 17th.
Sid did an outstanding job of
weaving himself into the hearts
and lives of everyone he met.
He will be sorely missed,
especially that big broad smile
of his that was so infectious.
Governor Bush appointed
the first Republican, Ellen
Sands to serve as Dixie County
Clerk of Court, filling the
vacated position with the
retirement of veteran Clerk
Hubert Allen. Sands was
sworn into office on March
27th. Sands would serve as
Clerk until November, 2006.
Also in March, James K.
Lawrence, Jr. was found guilty
of the murder of Charles Carr,
former owner of Carr's
Furniture in Old Town.
Lawrence was sentenced to
Life Imprisonment of the first
degree murder charge and an
additional Life Imprisonment
on the Burglary While Armed
With A Firearm charge.
Phillip and Sidney
Goulooze of Old Town were
fatally injured Sunday, April
:9th as they were driving on SR
349 and a pickup truck ran a
stop sign, striking the couple.
The Gouloozes were the
seventh fatalities for the year.
Dixie County High School
junior, Nicholas Jake Cravey,
was named the new State
BETA President for 2006.
Nicholas kept busy throughout
the year and represented Dixie
well.
Anne Jones was named
District Teacher of the Year as


well as Old Town
Elementary's Teacher of the
Year. Also named as their
school's Teacher of the Year
were Alexa Mills for Ruth
Rains Middle School, Carol
Petrone for Dixie County High
School; and Anna Allen for
Anderson Elementary's.
A new truck route was
opened in May to deter truck
traffic from CR 351 to 351-A
and from US 19 to 351-A.
Heavy truck traffic in the
downtown area of Cross City
and school zones had been a
concern of the city, county and
school system for years.
Detouring truck traffic from
these areas is one way to
ensure a safe roadway for all.
In addition to the new truck
route, the City placed 4-way
stops at several intersections,
including the one at CR 351
and Barber Avenue. next to the
courthouse. These changes
have proven to be helpful
alleviating congestion in the
downtown area and around our
schools.
May was the month for our
local students to shine. Sarah
Durham was named Class of
2006 Valedictorian and Kaylla
Futch Salutatorian. Maddie
Kelley was crowned Miss
Dixie and Shamberlena Feltner
Miss Dixie Princess.
The Bellamy Brothers &
Highway 101 headlined the
11" Annual Red Belly Day
festivities. This years' crowd
grew as the weather made for
the perfect "Chamber of
Commerce Day." Red Belly
Day is the Chamber's biggest
and most popular fundraiser.
No word as to who will draw
in the crowds for 2007.
The first of June, disturbing
news of human remains being
found on an island off the
coast of Suwannee by amateur
photographer, Dawn Dubois,
brought local law enforcement
and the State Medical
Examiner's Office to Dixie.
Later archaeologists from the
University of Florida were
brought in as the bones are
believed to be from an early
burial ground. The most
astounding piece of
information given was the age
of the remains; 2,000 to 2,500
years old.
Also in June, the 2006
Hurricane Season officially
. began. As luck would have it,
the only tropical weather Dixie
saw, and for that fact, anyone
on the east coast saw, was
Tropical Storm Alberto.
Alberto was the first named
storm for the season with
winds reaching near Category I
strength at 70 mph. Horseshoe
and Suwannee received some
flooding and high gusts of
wind, but compared to last
year they felt fortunate indeed.
Schools received great
news in June concerning
FCAT scores. For the first


time, all Dixie schools
received passing grades. Ruth
Rains brought back their "A",
while Anderson moved up to a
"B", Old Town Elementary
received a "C" and after
several years of near failing
grades, Dixie County High
School boasted a "C". It was
also reported that neighboring
Steinhatchee Elementary
received an "A" under the
Governor's A++ Plan.
The annual Bay Scallop
harvest began July Ist and ran
through September 10th. This
year's crop was somewhat
disappointing with the prized
shellfish's late arrival. Toward
the end of the season there
were tales of good harvests,
but overall, it seemed to be a
wash out. There is always next
year...
On July 9th an Old Town
man was fatally injured after
he was ejected from his
moped. James Earl Cooper, III,
20, was the eighth fatality of
the year.
The long awaited
dedication of the Warren
McGill Park was held on July
4th. The park is located next to
the greenway in Cross City at
the intersection of US 19 and
CR 351. County Veterans
Administrator Jerry Prater had
been working on the project
for nearly a year and is proud
of the memorial that is
dedicated to all veterans, of all
branches of service and all
wars.
Students reported back to
school on August 7U'. Dixie
County High School welcomed
a new principal, Buddy
Schofield. Schofield comes to
Dixie from neighboring
Gilchrist County where he
served in an administrative
capacity. Schofield's focus has
been on academics with an
increased emphasis on student
growth and the Sunshine State
Standards.
Ray Mitchell Branch, 53 of
Old Town sustained fatal
injuries in an August accident.
Branch would be the ninth
fatality for Dixie and one of
several that occurred on US
19.
Property Appraiser Hall
Chewning, Jr. announced the
total taxable amount for the
2006 tax roll reached over V2
billion total, showing the high
rise of property values in 2005.
Today an average 1-acre
residential acre land home site
will cost you an estimated
$20,000.00; in Horseshoe
Beach a 100 foot lot will run
you $200,000.00; and property
on the Steinhatchee River will
cost you 5,000.00 a foot.
Suwannee prices remained
about the same as last year
with canal frontage costing an
average of $1,700 to $2,100 a
foot. The taxable value overall
in Dixie County for the 2006
tax year brought in a whopping


$591,757,000.
Dixie's Shired Island was
given a bad rap as one of the
nation's dirtiest beaches in a
report filed by the Natural
Resources Defense Council in
August of 2006. According to
Dixie County's Health
Inspector Wesley Asbell, tests
show poor quality results from
half of the tests performed.
The reason for the
contamination is not really
known, but there have never
been any known reports of
sickness for individuals who
had swam in the waters off
Dixie's coast. It was noted
that Shired Island is
surrounded by marshland and a
wildlife sanctuary. The
commissioners are seeking
funding to be able to have the
proper test performed in order
to find the source.
After five long years,
$344,000. and a lot of hard
work, renovations at the old
Old Town Elementary School
were completed. The 97-year-
old building has undergone
work from top to bottom,
inside and out, bringing back
the beauty of the building and
memories to many who still
remember the old school house
in its infancy. The Dixie
County Historical Society has
been using a portion of the
school as an office with the
remaining as the Dixie County
Cultural Center, which houses
a museum, artifacts room and
auditorium. Evonne Cline,
Renovations Director, stated
that she was more than pleased
with the results and praised all
those involved in the process.
If you get a chance, you should
stop by and see the results for
yourself; after all it is a large
part of Dixie's heritage and
belongs to us all. The museum
is open on Fridays, from 9
a.m.-1 p.m. and is located off
SR 349 south, going toward
Suwannee.
Scott Johnson, 40, of Cross
City, was fatally injured on
August 26th while performing
maintenance on equipment at
the Suwannee Lumber
Company. An in depth
investigation into the incident
was handled by Workman's
Comp and the Occupational
Safety & Health
Administration. It would later
be determined that it was an
accident. Management at
Suwannee Lumber, along with
lumber employees, was
devastated by Johnson's death,
who was known as a hard
worker and good friend.
The Florida Wildlife
Commission had its hands full
this past summer as sturgeon
strikes were on the rise this
year. The prehistoric fish use
the Suwannee River as their
spawning ground and can be
seen doing what they naturally
do, jump. However, this year
seven boaters were injured by
the fish, prompting FWC to
bring better awareness of the
jumping fish with the
installation of over 100 signs
warning of their presence. The
signs were placed along the
170 miles of the river they
inhabit.
The September Election
whittled the two County
Commission seats up for grabs
to Democratic incumbents
Alton Land and John Driggers,
with Dana Cannon Johnson
winning the Democratic votes
for Clerk of the Circuit Court.
Three School Board Members
returned without opposition,
Dewayne "Top" Rollison,
David Keen, and Glen Osteen.
The November Election would
bring change to both the
Commission and Clerk's
Office with two new
Commissioners getting the top
votes, Marvin Hunt and Troy
Johnson. Cannon took top
votes from Republican Ellen
Sands who had been appointed
to the Clerk's position back in
March by the governor.
Darrell Lee Washington,
19, of Jacksonville, turned
himself into law enforcement
officials after a warrant was
issued for his arrest for the


shooting death of Joseph
Thomas, II of Old Town.
Washington will be facing
murder charges here in Dixie.
A new Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
flood map took effect on
September 30th of this year.
The new maps, which include
incorporated cites and towns,
had been in production for
nearly two years and was the
effort of FEMA and Suwannee
River Water Management.
Little changes were made
which will affect homeowners;


however the map is much more
detailed with information that
had been collected over a 23-
year period.
Cross City held their
election on October 2nd with
Marcellus Dawson, Kay
Harden, Herbert Hurst, and
Clay Locklear returning for
another term and newcomer
Richard Gooding completing
the five seat council.
Miss Maddie Kelley & Mr.
AJ Land were crowned Dixie
County High's 2006
Homecoming Queen & King.
The Queen's Court includes
2nd Runner Up Jillian Gee and
Ist Runner Up Vanessa Hollis.
2nd Runner Up Codey Fowler
and Ist Runner Up Kory
VanAernam make up the
King's Court.
October 19'h's headline
included a disturbing picture of
an emaciated horse. Entitled
"RESCUED," the Dixie
County Sheriff's Department
began an investigation into
what is being called one of the
worst animal cruelty cases
reported in this area with 33
horses found malnourished.
The Horse Protection
Association of Florida took 12
of the worst cases. They
reported two dying within a
few days, but the others
continue to improve. The
remainder of the horses were
given to good homes
throughout the county.
Owners, Steve and Beth
Anglen were charged with 33
counts each of Animal Cruelty
and Animal Abandonment.
Dixie Rescue Units
responded in record time to a
911 call concerning an airplane
crash at the Cross City Airport.
Fortunately, the report proved
to be a false alarm with the
pilot making a safe landing.
The caller was Georgette
Palermo and she called about
her husband, Frank. The day
before the couple had
experienced instrument
troubles and Frank was on a
test run. After flying over the
airport, Georgette noticed a
large cloud of smoke coming
from where Frank had just
passed over. The smoke
would later be found to be a
control burn. The Ocala
couple took time to gather their
nerves and then headed home,
safely.
The first Dixie Fall Festival
& Gun Show was held in
November. The Dixie County
Rotary Club hosted the event
at the Trail Riders Club.
Considered a success, they
plan to make the event an
annual affair.
Commissioners got word
early in November the Florida
Department of Transportation
had approved four Dixie roads
for improvement projects.
Spillers Road from CR 351 to
SR 349 and Veterans Road
from US 19 to Cross City
Correctional Institute will be
widened and resurfaced. N.E.
512 Avenue from CR 351
North to SR 349 North is
slated for resurfacing. The
projects were to begin in
2007/2008, however a recent
budget cut has put these
projects on the back burner to
as far as 2010.
The Dixie County Chamber
welcomed two new businesses
to the area, Smokey's Bar-B-
Que & Steakhouse and
Suwannee Guides. Smokey's,
located in Cross City off US
19, has proven to be a good
place to eat while Suwannee
Guides is gearing up for the
upcoming spring season of
paddlers.
A Phase I Water Shortage
was issued by the Suwannee
River Water Management
District. No mandatory
restrictions are in place, but
water managers are calling on
residential, commercial,
agricultural and industrial
users to voluntarily reduce
water consumption. Lack of
rainfall this past fall has
created a moderate drought.
The advisory will remain in
effect until further notice.
The last two months of


2006 proved to be the worst
for traffic accidents. Within
three weeks, Dixie County
rescue units responded to three
accidents involving fatalities.
On November 22, 2006,

Danny Joe "Boonie" Corbin,
59, of Cross City, was fatally
injured after being ejected
from his truck when he ran off
the roadway and then
overcorrected.
The following week, James
T. Dyals, 34, of Cross City,
was fatally injured in a late
night accident that occurred on


SR 349. Dyals had been
driving a lawnmower and was
hit from behind, ejecting his
passenger and himself. His
passenger was critically
injured while Dyals was
pronounced dead at the scene.
A Mayo man was fatally
injured in a accident which
occurred on US 19, just south
of CR 358. Willie George
Campbell, Sr., 55, also veered
off the road and struck several
posts and a bridge before
overturning. Campbell was the
12'h victim of a vehicle
accident.
In early December, the tri-
county area awaited the state's
approval for the proposed Tri-
County Hospital. The 60-bed
hospital was to be built in
Chiefland behind Wal-Mart;
however the state's Agency for
Health Care Administration
denied the Certificate of Need
(CON). This was the second
time that Ameris Health Care
has tried to get the state's
approval. Commissioners
from the tri-county area will be
helping with the appeals
process.
The 2006 Christmas In The
Park celebration, sponsored by
the Chamber of Commerce,
kicked off the holiday season.
Held at the Cross City Park,
this annual event has become a
tradition for our community
and one that all, young and old
alike, look forward to.
Progress Energy named a
possible site for a future
nuclear plant in southern Levy
County, eight miles north of
the company's Crystal River
Energy Complex. The
selection of the site was made
in anticipation of future
demands for power as growth
continues in our area. Once
the site plans are in place, PE
will apply for a license through
the Federal Nuclear Regulatory
Commission (NRC). If
approved, it will make the first
license in 20 years issued for a
nuclear plant. Construction
would not begin until 2010,
with the plant becoming
operational in 2016.
In keeping with our areas'
ecotourism, the governor's
cabinet gave final approval last
week to purchase the former
Angler's Resort marina in
Suwannee to serve as the
southern hub of the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail. The
2.5-acre property, located
adjacent -to the public boat
ramp, will be purchased for
$1.9 million and will undergo
an estimated $4 million in
renovations before being
opened to the public.
The biggest story of 2006
would have to be the
placement of a six-ton granite
monument of the Ten
Commandments on the Dixie
County Courthouse steps. The
first week brought criticism
from neighboring Gainesville,
followed by news casts as far
away as New York City.
Local attorney Joseph Lander
appeared on the FoxNews
Hannity & Colmes Show,
along with a young gentleman,
Daniel Morgan, president of
the Atheist, Agnostic and
freethinking Student
Association at the University
of Florida.
Since the show aired, there
have been a rash of letters to
the editor, the majority of
which are pro-monument.
Several groups are vying to
find a resident to join them in
suing the Commissioners for
their approval of the placement
of the monument on county
property. Others, such as
Gilchrist's Commissioners,
and a law firm which
specializes in such cases, have
given Dixie County the
"thumbs up". No doubt this
debate will continue into 2007.
Honorable mention this
year, once again goes to the
Dixie County Sheriffs
Department. Over the past
year their Drug Task Force and
Investigation Department
stepped up to the plate and
have cracked down on crime in


Dixie. There are few weeks
where the Advocate did not
feature criminals who have
been taken off the streets,
sending a clear message that
crime does not pay in Dixie.
Congratulations to Sheriff
Hatcher and his entire staff!


As we close out 2006, we
need to end with thoughts of
our young men and women
who are overseas, fighting for
our freedom. We wish them
all the best and a safe return
home.

Trees Planted Today Mean Cleaner Air Tomorrow
With tree planting season underway right now many Floridians do not know thai te treeccs being planted
today will help keep their slate clean and healthy I'or years to come. Florida's forests are a renewable resource
that constantly improves the environment and ihe quality of life for everyone in the stalc.
Consistent reforestation is the key to a healthy forest. The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services reports that over 6 billion trees have been planted in Florida since 1927. Each year, 82
million trees are planted in Florida, making it one of the top four tree-planting states in the U.S.
Florida is active in reforestation, with four trees planted for every tree harvested in the state. In fact, Florida
has 14 million acres of forestland-that's nearly half the state's land area. Forestry, which brings over $16.6
billion to Florida's economy annually, is the state's largest agricultural industry. That puts forestry even above
citrus, yet most people do not know how vital this commodity is to Florida's economy and its environment.
As a result of reforestation efforts by private non-industrial and corporate landowners, the United States
has millions of acres of young, vigorously growing forests. Vigorously growing trees remove carbon dioxide
from the atmosphere and turn it into oxygen. Approximately 2.3 acres of vigorously growing pine will clean up
the carbon dioxide produced by one sport utility vehicle in one year. At a time when Americans are seeking to
reduce their carbon emissions to fight global warming, they should also be looking to trees for their power to
capture the carbon and in return
Release oxygen, purifying the air.
S. Tree planting not only renews our
forest resources and cleans the air;
the forest soil also captures
rainfall to replenish the aquifer
1 a-and forests provide habitat for
..wildlife and green space for us to
enjoy.
These vigorously grown trees
'- .. ... are a result of successful tree
planting, which requires extensive
planning and attention to detail.
According to Florida's Best
Management Practices, a set of

Division of ForeStry provides

Andrews Nursery Manager Steve Gilly shows some of their stock of planting procedures.
pine seedlings. Many seedling nurseries in
Florida, such as Buckeye Nursery,
Inc., in Perry; Superior Trees, Inc., in Lee; Central Florida Lands and Timber in Mayo; C.F.T. Nursery, Inc., in
Astatula; and Andrews Nursery in Chiefland provide seedlings to forest landowners who are planning to plant
trees. Most of these nurseries plant genetically superior seeds, which are disease-resistant and will grow
healthier and faster.
Andrews Nursery, owned and operated by the Florida Division of Forestry, sold its first crop of seedlings in
1956. According to Nursery Manager Steve Gilly, Andrews has sold over 1 billion seedlings in its 50-year
history. It sells 12 million seedlings annually-enough to plant 16,500 acres of trees at 726 trees per acre.
Gilly, who has worked at Andrews Nursery for 19 years, says that he has seen many changes in the nursery
operation over the years. "As Florida changes, forestry changes," he says, "so the nursery must improve and
adapt."
One way nurseries provide better seedlings to forest landowners is through the process of genetic
improvement. Science comes first in producing quality tree seedlings. The Florida Division of Forestry is a
member of the Cooperative Forest Genetics Research Program at the University of Florida. The program seeks
to develop genetically-improved varieties of southern pines through research and the cooperation of its
members. The process used by the program continuously improves tree quality by selecting mature trees with
-desirable qualities and producing seed from those selected trees through cross-pollination. This results in young
trees with the desired qualities of the mature trees from which they were grown. The improved trees are faster
growing, self-pruning and disease- and rust-resistant with straighter stems. Each generation is improved to be
superior to the previous generations of trees.
In addition to genetic advances, many nurseries also employ other techniques to encourage tree survival.
Traditionally, tree seedlings are sold bare-root, but containerized seedlings have increased in popularity and
sales over the last decade as a better alternative for certain planting situations. In this process, seeds are planted
in plastic trays and grown into seedlings so that when they are sold, they are delivered in their own potting soil,
similar to many garden plants you find in retail stores. This helps the seedling survive in its new surroundings,
ensuring that the forest is thick and healthy.
"Over the last fifty years, Andrews Nursery has experienced a lot of change," recalls Gilly. "We've greatly
increased the genetic quality of our seedlings, introduced the production of containerized seedlings and now are
even producing over 1 million containerized wiregrass seedlings a year for restoration of the longleaf
pine/wiregrass ecosystem in Florida."
With advances in science and increased knowledge of responsible forestry practices, Florida can continue to
nurture its 14 million acres of forestland and fight the negative effects that our growing population has on our
environment. As long as Florida's forests continue to thrive, we will all be able to reap the benefits: clean air,
clean water and a beautiful state in which to live.

brated Chicken Soup series
are now serving up some deli-
ciously simple recipes in
"Chicken Soup for the Soul:
Recipes for Busy Moms" (HCI
Books, $19.95).
The book was written with
the reassuring help of Mr.

Food, who is known for his
quick-and-easy approach to
cooking. The beloved TV food
personality has assembled a
vast collection of family
favorites. The easy-to-use, spi-
ral-bound format contains
recipes such as Overstuffed
Mediterranean Omelet, which
calls for healthy olive oil
instead of butter ("OOH IT'S
SO GOOD!!").

How Can The Sooal Security Disability Specialist At Integrated FamIty Services Help You?

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

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


Locals Enjoy Christmas


Party W
Mel Tillis along with local officials
and residents from Taylor and Dixie
Counties kicked off the grand re-
opening of Gulfstream Marina's
Crabhouse Cafe and Tiki Bar. This
awesome event hosted by Gulfstream
and Steinhatchee River Development
Company attracted people of all ages
with an added bonus of personal
pictures and autographs with Mel as
he mingled with the crowd. The
festivities were livened up by the
"Saltwater Cowboys" live country
music. Also, a sneak preview of the
cafes reasonably priced brand new
menu was enjoyed by all with grand
reviews. A Key West favorite, of
Crunchy Grouper, as found no where
else, was a hit. Reservations for the
new Cafe are not required, but looks
like a happening family friendly place.
We even over heard negotiations of
a New Years Eve Party and a Country
Music Jamboree in the near future. If
you missed Mel's down-home
hospitality and the "best Steinhatchee
has to offer", Gulfstream announced
the Cafe and Tiki Bar are now open
Thursday & Sundays 4-10pm and
.Fridays and Saturdays 4-1 1pm.
