Pictured above is an updated layout plan of the Cross City Airport which reflects past and future projects.
By Tern Langford
Over the past six years the Cross City Airport has succeeded in making a name for itself, and is fast becoming the airport of choice
for many pilots, both local and out-of-town. This past Monday, January 8 2007, a special workshop was held at the airport's terminal
with county and cit\ officials, representatives from Hoyle, Tanner & Associates (HTA) and the State of Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT), as well as private pilots. The workshop outlined past and future projects for the rural airport, making it one of
Dixie's largest assets. See "AIRPORT"page 2A


Spelling Bee winner Jordan Barger
By Briar Keatlhlev
' "Curfew. C-U-R-F-E-W. Curfew," Jordan Barger, 12, stated
into the microphone Knowing he spelled it correctly, and had won
the: Dixie District Schools Spelling Bee, the seventh-grade Ruth
Rains Middle School studentjumped up and down on thestage
shouting "yes!"
Barger competed against 12 other students from Anderson
Elementary School, Old Town Elementary School and Ruth Rains
Middle School in the spelling bee competition held Monday night
at Old Town Elementary School.
, -The students, ranging from fourth-grade to eighth-grade, were
as Old Town Elementary School teacher and 'spelling bee
pronouncer Gail Rains told them, "the cream of the crop,
representing the best spellers in your school."
The competition went 10 rounds, with students spelling words
such as "caboose" and "meddlesome"-words some adults would
have difficulty spelling. But in the end, it was the word "curfew"
ihat made Barger a winner.
Barger, of Cross Cit), almost didn't make it to the competition
Monday night. His parents, Doug and Star Ward, had to work, but
a neighbor and close friend, Barbara Asbury, was able to drive him
to the competition. Also, he was going to attend the Rutth Rains
Middle School basketball game to act as a scorekeeper.
Opting to attend the competition instead, Barger said, was a
good decision.
Winning the competition was "pretty cool," Barger said,
adding. I'm thankful that Ms. Barbara brought me down here."
Now that he has won the Dixie District Schools Spelling Bee,
Barger will receive a $50 savings bond from Capital City Bank,
and will go on to Tallahassee Feb. 24 to participate in the
Tallahassee Democrat Big Bend Regional Spelling Bee, where he


Suwannee Technology

Center Receives Grant
By Briar Keathley'
The Suwannee Technology Center recently received a grant for
$8,500. The grant, given by the Thomas A. Plien Foundation LTD,
will be used to purchase new computers, bookcases and books, as
well as a plaque in remembrance of Thomas A. Plien, an attorney.
Located in the Suwannee Fire Department on Highway 349, the
Suwannee Technology Center offers residents of Suwannee the use
of computers and Internet access. The center is part of the Three
Ri\ers Regional Library System and was initiated about five years
ago, according to Dixie County Library Manager Cindy Bellot.
"(Suwannee Technology Center) began with a grant through
the Three Rivers Regional Library System to make computers and
Internet access available to the community of Suwannee," Bellot
said.
Because not everyone can afford computers or Internet access,
the center, Bellot said, is a great place to have in our county. The
recent grant money will be utilized to make the center even more
beneficial to the community f Suwannee.
Bellot explained that the center received the grant after a visitor
to Suwannee said she miglt be able to help the center get a grant.
Bellot gave the visitor the required information and on Friday,
Dec. 29, 2006, she received a letter informing her that the center
was to receive $8,500. The purchase of the new computers, books
and bookcases will be made shortly.
The Suwannee Technology Center is open Tuesday from 3
p.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday from
11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The. center
is closed on Friday, unday and Monday. For additional
information, call (352)-542-1141.
will compete against students from about 15 other counties. When
Barger told teachers who were present at the spelling bee he wasn't
sure if he could make it to Tallahassee, they all assured him that
one way or another he would be going!
Congratulations to Barger and to all of Dixie's "cream of the
crop!"

Alas, I shed not a tear
It had been a long time since the United States had been
involved in a war crimes trial. Oh, there have been any number of
cases wherein members of our own military have been punished for
"mistreating" prisoners of war (most -of whom didn't qualify as
POW's according to the Geneva Convention), many of the
instances being arbitrary or trivial. But putting one of the enemy in
the dock? To say the least, it's been a long time.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't we have to go all the way
back to the aftermath of World War II? Nazi war criminals were
put on trial at the historic Nuremberg tribunals, and in Japan,
several high-ranking Japanese authorities were tried and executed,
including Premier Hideki Tojo and General Masaharu Homma, the
officer who oversaw the Baatan Death March. None of these were
punished for being on the losing side, but for atrocities committed
under their command. And only the most flagrant and high-
ranking war criminals went to the gallows. Nonetheless, the
proceedings were just and they sent a message-one that seems to
have been forgotten by more recent war criminals.
During the Korean War, many American POW's were brutally
treated, and the situation was even worse in Vietnam. But since we
didn't win either war, there was no opportunity to bring enemy war
criminals to justice. And the black flags remind us that POW's and
MLA's still remain unaccounted for.
It is perhaps difficult to say that there is something "refreshing"
about the execution of a war criminal. The term just doesn't seem
to fit. However, it is clearly the message that needs to be sent to the
likes of Saddam Hussein-and certainly there are many more like
him, particularly in that part of the world.
Actually, Saddam was executed by the Iraqi government, and
no doubt it's just as well. As one commentator observed, it would
have taken 20 years for him to be executed under our rules.
Nonetheless, it was the Americans who captured him, and who
held him until his sentence had been passed and it was time to turn
him over the an Iraqi hangman. For that matter, Nuremberg was an
international tribunal, but that didn't spare Herman Goring, Martin
Borman, Joachim von Ribbentrop and the rest from their appoint-
ments at the gallows.
Indeed, few tears were shed for the war criminals of World War
II, but even now, the lunatic fringe is into big-time hand-wringing
over the demise of the Butcher of Baghdad. Saddam Hussein, who
used poison .gas against military adversaries and ran torture
chambers in which his personal enemies were brutalized and
killed, has been elevated to martyr status by the bleeding hearts in
our midst.
Even some religious groups have called Saddam's execution
"unjust." To these frail innocents I would recommend Genesis
chapter 9, verse 6. That's in the Bible, so if you're not using yours,
please pass it along to someone who will.
Still others have bemoaned the fact that Saddam's execution
was not dignified. The executioners taunted him. Golly, I just feel
terrible about that, don't you? And some guy with a cell phone
camera even got digital images of Saddam's last moments before
discovering that his 72 virgins all looked (and behaved) like Rosie
O'Donnell. But at least this way we can be fairly sure that he's
really dead.
Over the cacophonic chorus of empathy energizers agonizing
over Saddam Hussein's demise, one message should ring out loud
and clear to other Middle Eastern despots: It could happen to you!

"AIRPORT"
Continued from page 1

Hilary B. Wood, Project Engineer talked about previously completed projects that have brought
the 60+-year-old airport into the 21"' century and has "kicked off" the much needed renovations. In
May of 2002 the new airport terminal was completed at an approximate cost of $150,000. The
project was funded with a state grant, county monies and some finishing work by Dixie Aviation,
which leases the property from the county.
The terminal provides a place for visitors to come out and enjoy many unique planes that travel
through our area, as well as an oasis for pilots. Fuel is available and there are restrooms and private
rooms where pilots can use the phone, internet or rest for awhile. A small kitchen is housed in the
lobby area where visitors can get soft drinks, sandwiches and snacks. The terminal also provides
radio contact between pilots and airport personnel. It is truly a facility that everyone can be proud
of, as it is, for many, the first impression they have of our community.
Also in 2002, the airport entrance road and parking lot going to the terminal were constructed to
the tune of $61,588, also funded with state grant and local monies.
In 2005 the airfield was secured with the addition of approximately 35,000 linear feet of 6-foot
chainlink fencing and 3-strand barbed wire. This project was completed in 3 phases with a total cost
of $428,000; with state and federal funding ranging from 2.5 percent to 95 percent.
A runway safety area was constructed in 2005, relieving the airstrip which was prone to flooding.
The construction at the end of Runway 22, accomplished its mission, making landing much safer
during rainy periods. Included in funding for the runway were dollars allocated for an update of the
Airport Layout Plan (see diagram front page). Total of both projects came to $175,000; funded with
state and federal monies.
Moving on with renovations, the county was able to secure $315,000 (with 2.5 percent in state
funding and 95 percent in federal participation), for the construction of taxi lanes which will provide
access from the runway to future T-hangers. Phase I is the construction phase with Anderson
Columbia having won the bid for the job. The other phase of the project is an update of the Airport
Property Map, which is required by the Federal Government. A title search and boundary survey are
currently underway, as well as an interior-lease search. This project is slated to be complete by
April of 2007.
Looking to the future, the rejuvenation of Runway 13-31 and an 8-Unit T-Hanger are on the table
as the next projects that will be tackled by the county. County Coordinator Arthur Bellot noted that
of the two projects, the rejuvenation of the East/West Runway (13-31) is the most important. Bellot
stated that it is the thermal tape that was used to mark the runway that has caused the majority of
problems with the older runway. Over time the tape has begun to break down, and while the
numbers can still be seen, small chards of asphalt are beginning to come up with the deteriorating
tape.
A pavement dressing conditioner will rejuvenate the pavement and with the re-striping of the
entire runway with a modern paint, the runway will be safe once again. Cost for this project has
been estimated at $174,000 with 2.5 percent coming from state monies and 95% with federal
funding. It was noted that a pre-application was ready to be signed by the Commissioners and send
off for approval. If that approval goes through it could be the early part of this year that the project
will begin.
For some time now local pilots have been inquiring about T-hangers to store their planes out of
the weather. Commissioners and airport officials feel that an 8-unit T-hanger would not only
provide locals with the storage they have requested, but attract more users to the Cross City Airport.
Costs of these units are not cheap. An estimated $350,000 will be needed to construct the mini
garages.
HTA is working with the county to find the funding. Wood reported there were available monies
in the amount of $250,000 with state participation of 50 percent. The hunt for additional funding has
begun and once secured, the design process for the T-hangers will begin, with bidding and
construction to follow.
Gene Lampp, FDOT District Aviation Specialist also spoke to the group; going over his
departments availability of funding and regulations they require when applying for funding, such as
that for the T-hanger project. Lampp noted that any and all funds brought in by the airport, must go
into an account to be used for maintenance, renovations and upgrades.
Mike Cassidy, Cross City's City Manager, has served in the past as the chairman of the Airport
Committee. Last year the Committee went into a "holding pattern", if you will, and are now ready to
"take off' and begin the process of making the Cross City Airport all it can be a viable asset to our
community. By request of the Commissioners, the Committee will bring to one of the scheduled
Board Meetings an updated report on the Airport.


Boyd Sworn In To 110th Congress
Congressman Bovd Begins 11th Congress..
Congressman Allen Boyd )D-North Florida) was sworn in as a
member of the 100th Congress today, beginning his sixth term in
the U.S. House of Representatives. The day also marks the
official start of the 100 Congress.
"It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve the people of
Florida's 2nd Congressional District for the past 10 years, and I
look forward to another term representing my fellow North
Floridians," said Congressman Boyd. "There is much work to be
done in the upcoming year, and I am eager to tackle the
challenges before us so that our country can move forward in a
positive direction."
In the I10"' Congress, Congressman Boyd's top priority will
be working in a bipartisan way to restore fiscal responsibility and
accountability to our federal government. As the leader of the
Blue Dog Coalition, Congressman Boyd will work with his
colleagues to reinstate pay-as-you-go spending rules, commonly
known as PAYGO, and to enact meaningful budget reforms to get
our country back on track fiscally.
"It's time for some real fiscal discipline in Washington," Boyd
said. "I will work with my colleagues in the Blue Dog Coalition
to advance fiscal responsibility, accountability, and transparency
in our government."
Supporting North Florida's military bases, rural communities,
and universities and colleges also will be at the center of
Congressman Boyd's legislative agenda.
Congressman Boyd will continue to serve on the House
Appropriations Committee as a member of the Subcommittee on
Defense, the Subcommittee on Military Construction Veterans
Affairs, and the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural
Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related
Agencies.
"This is an exciting and challenging time to be in Congress,"
Boyd stated. "I look forward to building on past legislative
accomplishments and addressing the issues we face as Americans
and as Floridians in a bipartisan manner."

Suwannee River Wilderness Trail Partners
December 13, 2006 Meeting Minutes
Thanks to everyone who attended the December 13, 2006,
meeting at Yellow Jacket Campground down river from Old Town,
Florida. Bibbi Oxendine our host at Yellow Jacket along with co-
hosts Russ and Kay McAllister were most gracious and the
meeting facilities overlooking the Suwannee made us realize just
how special the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is.
The discussions at the meeting were lively and productive,
including an update on construction projects from Edwin McCook,
Suwannee River Water Management District, an update from
Brack Barker on the Boating Advisory Council's discussions on
educational testing for canoe/kayakers, marketing efforts from our
Public Outreach for Lands and Recreation Marketing Office, an
update on the SRWT Manual from Amy Thompson and a report
from Donald Forgione on the purchase of 3 acres in the Town of
Suwannee which will be developed into the termination of the
Suwannee River Wilderness Trail.
Deborah Stewart-Kent, Florida Trail Association gave an
excellent presentation on how the Florida Trail and the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail complement each other. She also
announced that White Springs has been selected as the first
"Gateway Community" for the Florida Trail.
Sherri Martin, New Product Development Manager with Visit
Florida will be our featured speaker this month. Sherri will be
talking about the opportunities for Visit Florida Partners to join
them on a cooperative basis to market/promote/advertise their
businesses to the Nature, Heritage, and Cultural Tourism market.
You don't want to miss Sherri's presentation. I promise you will
learn new approaches to economically market your business.

Wednesday of each month from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. For the

n l I jT JIhIe i ::I rd e nII ,!I

by Art & Karen Wyckoff
The busyness of the holiday seasori is behind us and it is
time to reflect. Reflect about the positive things you added t
your gardening activities as well as those that didn't work oit
like you had planned. So go make yourself a hot cup of
chocolate, get one of the last leftover holiday treats and get
comfortable in that rocking chair and THING BIG!!.
Flowers that you would enjoy, dream of that tree you've
always wanted, then, make some plans to turn it all into a
reality. Once you've thought of some ideas and your course of
action, get out of your chair and take a walk in your present
garden. Cover up those cold sensitive plants with a good bed of
mulch or pine straw. Trim those perennials that got bit by first
frost and clean up the dead leaves to prevent those undesirable
pest from making their hotels in the debris. Thatch, dead
branches, and old leaves can add some nutrition to the soil tis
true, but the insect larvae like the nutritution too. The plants to
not need feeding this time of year, so clean up now and feed in
march. One caution in your trimming, do not trim those azaleas,
they are storing up energy to provide you with spectacular early
spring color. You can go ahead and trim the crepe myrtles now,
trimming them down fairly close, as they bloom on new years'
growth. Trimming them close will allow you to keep them from
growing out so lanky.
Another good idea for January is to start up all of your power
trimmers, e '2ers and mowers to keep them fine tuned. It has
probably been' a while since you used them and if you did not
drain the fuel completely out for the winter starting them up
once a month till spring will save you headaches and money in
repairs.
All of at A & K Nursery would like to wish you the best in
this New Year. If you have any specific questions about your
garden or yard, fell free to call or stop in.
Remember, "GIVE A PLANT, SOW A FRIENDSHIP".

"ACCIDENT"
Continued from page 1A

According to a report filed by the FHP, Alen Scott Paulk, 33,
of Old Town was driving a log truck north on US 19, followed by
Kenneth L. Pickern, 62, also of Old Town. Pickern stated that an
unknown object flew up and hit the windshield of his pickup,
shattering it. Not able to see, he attempted to get off the roadway,
but hit the back of Paulk's log trailer.
Pickern skidded across the inside lane of the road, coming to
rest in the turn lane to SE 375" Street. Paulk was able to pull over
onto the east shoulder, just a few feet from the point of impact.
Pickern was taken to Shand UF by the Dixie County EMS
where he was treated for his injuries.
No charges were filed in the case.

Today was a beautiful Lord's day. Our crowd was small, but
spiritual and the weather was outstanding. Bro. Jackie delivered
two good messages that God had laid on his heart and the special
music in both services were done by Debbie Phillips and she did a
fine job as well.
Some of our folks are still out sick and we are praying for
them. It was good to have some back that had been out sick. We're
glad they were able to be back in our midst.
If you missed either service today, you truly missed a blessing.
Come out Wednesday night for prayer meeting and again Sunday
for Sunday School, Church and Bible study. Bible Study starts at
6:00 p.m. on Sunday with Bro. Buddy Britton teaching it. Bro.
Buddy puts a lot of time and effort in this and we appreciate him
for that. Come out and join us. You'll receive a blessing for it.
Remember this week to pray for someone less fortunate, the
sick and the bereaved in our community. Invite someone to come
with you and come out next week for Sunday School. We have
classes for all ages and excellent teachers. We'd love to have you
join the class of your choice. Until next week we will be praying
for you and looking forward to seeing you.

Notice
We have had questions concerning the Internment fee at the
Mt. Olive Cemetery. Please meet with us at our January 30'h, 2007,
7:00 p.m. meeting to discuss this.
No one is "Grandfathered In", this includes the officers on the

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
"The Unseen"
Corinthians 4:18 says while we look nott the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen, for the things which are seen are
temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal (age-during). Life
seems to hold a paradox; so many things are not as they appear, with so
many mysterious undertones in their operations. The scriptures hide while
they reveal, obscure while they make light, with depth after depth
contained in their meaning. And now we are admonished by Paul to Look
At The Things Not Seen, for that which is seen is temporal and shall pass
away.
Isaiah 54:7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee, .but with great
mercies will I gather thee. Romans 8:20 For the creature was made subject
to vanity, not willingly, but by reasons of Him who hath subjected the
same in hope.
I, the day of the Lord, say this gross materialism this earthliness is
transitory, it only lasts for a season, for an appointed or measured time.
The phrase "for a season" or "a small moment" is often used in the word
denoting the shortness of duration the shortness of time of which many of
these things last. And then there is the contrast with that which is age
during. "Aionian" in the Greek, and translated by such words as eternal,
everlasting, forever, etc. While the translation is incorrect it still helps to
offer the contrast against the passing away of those temporal things. We
need a revelation that will open our heart and mind to those things, or
substances which are age-lasting, abiding the trials of time. God has a
great purpose in lifting His hand from mankind for a small moment,
because the lessons which we learn during that period are unforgettable, as
a part of His plan of the ages, and afterwards shall we find rejoicing in the
great gathering mercies of our Lord.
For a small moment have I forsaken thee. Carry the same terminology
into the New Testement for a small moment has creation been subjected to
vanity, but our hope reaches out for the gathering together again, as we
read in (Ephesians 1:10) "That in the dispensation of the fullness of time,
He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in
heaven, and which are in earth. Continued next week.

Levy County Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday Jan. 4 at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. What a joyous day we had when our northern
members have come home for a while. Sarah Small, Dorothy
Riggs and Elvena Davidson along with Evelyn Etheridge got right
down to quilting. It was great to have Joy McCraney back with us,
she makes beautiful children clothing that we sell.
It was a day for trying to get everything put away, taking down
quilts and hanging up what we have left to sell. It takes time as we
had more his year at the Quilt Show, all the Christmas crafts that
was left over has to be put away. When everyone helps it don't
take long to get it back to normal.
We are having lots of fabric and whatever for us to use brought
in. So many are clearing out what they can't use and we can.
A big load was taken to St. Francis House this week. There are
many coming in from the North, they need clothing and cover for
warmth. This has been a project for us for two years, we took lots
of stocking caps in also.
Our new year has started out great and we look forward to a
wonderful year. Lunch was so good with chicken potpie, chicken
dressing, baked chicken, chicken and rice, lots of vegetables,
salads, apple dumplings, Watergate cake, chocolate cake and so
much more. 21 members and 3 guests.

How Can The Social Security Disability Specialist At Integrated Family Servces 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 lle is one more day until you begin receiving your money.

The Cool Down Lap
Nextel Chase Should Be True Postseason
by Alan Ross
You have to believe NASCAR knew all along that it held a dirty bomb-.
something powerful enough to affect instant change yet laced with lethal
shrapnel.
I'm talking about the Chase, NASCAR Nextel Cup's World Series-a 10-
race card at season's end currently allowing all to run, including those no
longer in the hunt.
A former leader (Jeff Burton, who DNF-ed at Martinsville, 10/22/06)
finishes behind all nine other Chase drivers, dropping down to fifth place, and an out-of-contention
Tony Stewart whips the finalists' collective butt during the Chase. Now NASCAR is considering
revamping its rules to give playoff drivers a separate point system. Same old NASCAR: tinkering with
its:game as if it were adjusting a faulty carburetor.
.Obviously stock car racing's governing body has never scanned the ground previously plowed by
other sports. Baseball doesn't allow its also-rans to suit up for postseason play and neither does the
NFL, NBA, or the NHL. NASCAR's playoffs should be totally separate from its regular season. True,
Kyle Petty and Carl Edwards fans won't get to see their heroes at season's end, just as Ken Griffey Jr.
followers were stymied from catching their idol this past postseason.
- But that's the point. That's the very nature of playoff elimination.
"Come on NASCAR, borrow a page from your fellow sports brethren. You could even begin
stashing the 10-car field after each playoff race, whittling it down to a final two cars for the final race,
which should be the Daytona 500. Your Super Bowl's on the wrong end of the season schedule. It's
like serving dessert before dinner.
Alan Ross is the author of 20 books and for three years reported on the Team Lowe's 31 car

Continued from lA

system. Data for October of
2006, shows that Dixie County
had the highest rate of online
applications of the 11 counties
in District 3.
"We believe that our
clients have become
comfortable with automated
access and have found this
change to be a convenient and
effective way to apply for
benefits," stated Tom Barnes,
-District 3, Public Information
:Specialist.
The new program was
:designed to eliminate the need
-for most program participants
-to visit the service center.
:Since DCF implemented the
-downsize, the department has
-shown an annual savings of 45
-million. This savings is due
-mainly to staff reduction.
However, Barnes was
quick to note that while DCF
-has reduced its staff; those
-employees have not lost their
jobs, but have transferred to
other agencies within the state.
-This will be the case with the
Three staff members at the
Cross City office.
The Dixie County Health
Department, the One Stop
Career Center in Old Town,
the Cross City Rehabilitation
and Health Care Center and the
Suwannee River Economic
Council in Cross City are
already partners with the DCF,
helping clients get the help
they need.
Barnes stated that while
residents will miss the one-on-
one, personalized service; he
feels certain they will be
pleased with the simplicity and
speed the new service will
provide them.
Residents will need to call
-1-866-762-2237 to find where
:they can apply for assistance in
their area. You may also reach
the District 3 Office at 1-800-
342-9004.

Social Security Benefit Statements Being Mailed This Month


By ClifCo>peland
Social Security Public Affairs Specialist
It is not too early to begin gathering the
information you will need to file your income
taxes. And, if you receive Social Security
benefits, you will be glad to know your Social
Security Helneflit Statement, or i ornm SSA-
1099, can be expected to arrive in the mail this
month.
Beneficiaries will need this 1099
Benefit Statement to complete their federal
income tax return and to find out whether their
benefits are subject to income tax. Generally,
you have to pay taxes on your Social Security
benefits if your total annual income is more
than $25,000 as an individual or $32,000 for a
couple. Less than a third of beneficiaries pay
taxes on their benefits.
The Benefit Statement shows the gross
amount of benefits that were due and the net
amount of benefits paid. The 1099 also shows
the amount of any payments (such as Medicare
premiums) that were withheld.
The 1099 Benefit Statement should not
be confused with the Social Security
Statement, which is mailed to all workers age
25 or older not yet receiving benefits and gives

Anderson Elementary Recycling Old

Cell Phone & Empty Inkjet Cartridges
Save your empty inkjet cartridges and old cell phones-they
have value! Anderson Elementary School has found a company
that will pay them cash for empty inkjet cartridges and old cell
phones. The company remanufactures the inkjet cartridges and
sells them at significant savings to its customers.
Here's how it works. The inkjet cartridges and cell phones can
be collected from homes, parents' work, co-workers and local
businesses. The cartridges and cell phones should then be brought
back to a collection box at school in a plastic bag to prevent
leakage. The inkjet cartridges and cell phones will then be shipped
to the recycling company (free shipping is provided). The school
will earn up to $3.00 per inkjet cartridge and $2.25 per qualifying
cell phone.
The benefits of this program are immense. It's a 100 percent
profit for the school. There is the potential to earn thousands of
dollars per year. The program is a safe, simple, quick, easy,
profitable, guaranteed way of raising funds. It eliminates thousands
of tons of trash in landfills. Students will learn about recycling and
its huge impact on our environment.
Thanks for your support! Life is to be fortified by

Get Results many friendships-to

The Board told John Jenkins to do

DICK EDWARDS:
Sampson. Allen, and Carter are all
SHIP programs.
These programs are all SHIP
because they are in town. You do not
want to use all of your SHIP money in
one year.
Commissioner Hays asked Mr.
Edwards if he and Cindy are on the
same page with all of his accounting.
Mr. Edwards stated that they
were.
Commissioner Lamb said that we
don't want to use CDBG money on the
SHIP side and then not have any
CDBG funds left to work on mobile
homes.
There is approximately
$80,000.00 left in the 2005-2006
program. We must be committed by
June 2007. The 2006-2007 program
must be used by 2008.

using a waiting list system and the
District they are in does not matter.

he is okay with that.
Cindy Dey is going to a workshop
to find out about the P.A.P.E.R.S.
program for CDBG reimbursement.
Mr. Edwards said that HUD hasn't
said no on the Infrastructure Grant for
the Prison but we are still looking into
this.
SUWANNEE WATER AND
SEWER BOARD:
Commissioner Hays asked if any
one else qualified other than those on
the Water Board. They must qualify
just as the others. Because there is an
empty seat, the Board of County
Commissioners will have to appoint it
based on recommendations.
Commissioner Hays made a
motion based on the recommendation
by the Suwannee Water & Sewer
Board. To reinstate Ron Hall to the
SWASB. Commissioner Lamb

with a monthly report for October. It is
the beginning of the new fiscal year
and he thinks that they are doing quite
well.

Mr. Reed presented an outline of a
monthly report starting the fiscal new
year.
Mr. Reed also presented a
resignation letter to the Board from an
EMT. This letter was sent to Suwannee
Place Resort. They could not be
approved because there were no
sprinklers. The Board does not have a
sprinkler ordinance and follow NFPA
code.
Commissioner Lamb motioned
that Chad Reed and Lindsey Lander
should get together and draft an
ordinance and bring it back before the
Board for approval. Commissioner
Valentine seconded the motion. Board
Approved
This ordinance will be used to fill
the loop holes that the State &
Building regulations do not cover.

off in the month of November.
CAROL LANCASTER:
Three years ago, Mr. Lancaster

wanting to sell them now.

objections as long as he isn't testing
them in the yard. Mr. Jenkins is to
make sure the Mr. Lancaster has all of
the necessary paperwork.
DAVID KEEN:
Mr. Keen presented the Board
with a proposal on prices on burning
and cleaning of the dump sites.
Commissioner Hays dos not think
that Joe Ruth and Arthur Bellot have
not gotten together on this matter yet.
Basically they are going to see
who can do it cheaper Mr. Keen or the
County.
Mr. Ruth said that a tub grinder is
needed to be purchased sooner or later
to increase regulations.
Commissioner Lamb said that


before anything is done, thisas to go
through DEP and be advertised to give
other proposuers a chance.
JUIY MORRELL
(CONTINUED):
Mrs. Monrell said that the people
fishing is not the issue: it is the
sanitation and the hours that this goes
on. She would like to see how zoning
reads and to understand tIle whole
situation first.
Commissioner Hays explained
that he didn't have any problem with
looking at the zoning and that
Suwavnnee has gone out to bid on a
water plant.
Mrs. Monrell asked if she could
charge people to fish on her property,
Gail Lovelace spoke up about
Mrs. Monell being correct. She owns


an office across the street from the
store and she has people coming on her
property to fish as well.
There are places in Suwannee that:
is a fire hazard on Fiddlers Lane, such
as a tree that fell on a mobile home and
it hasn't been removed.
ROY BOYETTE:
On behalf of his mother, they
cannot get road closing information
from a long time ago. It has gotten to
the point that children will be playing
on the road and motorist will come
flying through there. Commissioner
Hays had a sign put up out there about
the road being closed and there have
been complaints about this. Church
going people are using this road to
access the Methodist Church.
Lindsey Lander asked to see the
receipts showing that the road is
closed.
HOWARD REED:
Dragline.
Commissioner Driggers told Mr.
Reed to make sure that everything is in
order.
The Board discussed the Dragline
and asked Mr. Bellot how this would
affect the budget.
Arthur Bellot touched on the
repair budget with a loader being
repaired and he also made the
comment that he thinks that a decision
should be made soon or the dragline
problem will get more costly.
Commissioner Hays motioned for
Mr. Reed and Mr. Bellot to look at the
different options and let them handle
the situation but not to exceed the
amount presented to the Board.
Mr. Bellot suggested to hold off
on filling the two dump truck driver
positions in the budget until January
2007.
JOE, STEINHATCHEE
RIVERGATE:
Mr. Joe presented a chapel
project to the Board. He went on to
explain that this would be constructed
as a private chapel at first and later on
it would become a public chapel.
Mr. Joe would like for the Board
to quit claim deed the canal area so
that it can be dredged for boat use at
the end of the boat ramp towards
Roy's Restaurant. There would be
public access to the canal.
Jack Spivey said that he couldn't
issue a CO without restrooms being
added and without a CO, insurance
would not be available.
ARTHUR BELLOT:
1. Next week is Election Day.
Cindy Dey, Margaret Ward and Arthur
Bellot will be attending a CDBG
meeting in St. Augustine.
Small County coalition will hold a
two day Tallahassee Meeting on
11/15-11/16.
2. A letter was received from
Craig A. Smith proposing lobbying
government services funding group
offering services.
3. There is a potential snag
with the dispatch situation, civilian
dispatchers have limitations on not
being able to access certain
information. These will have to be
sheriff employees but they will have to
be cross-trained. We need to come up
with an agreement by the Sheriffs
office and a Budget amendment would
have to be made.
There will be two employees on
duty at a time.
Commissioner Driggers said to
take this up with the Sheriff.
Mr. Reed said that he would like
for the Board to go into this knowing
all aspects of the situation.
Arthur Bellot recommended that
this agreement be drawn up by
Lindsey Lander.
LINDSEY LANDER:
NCF reg. planning council,
amendment to LDR, future
development will have to obtain
information from the Board. This will-
not come up until the next meeting.
The Board discussed the issue at
hand.
ELLEN SANDS, CLERK OF
COURTS:
Mrs. Sands presented the Board
with the Const. office, and the
financial budget reports.
The motion to approve the
financial reports was made by
Commissioner Valentine and seconded
by Commissioner Land.
The Board was in favor.
COMMISSION ITEMS:
Commissioner Hays would like to
speak with Howard Reed.
Commissioner Driggers brought
up the fire issue in Suwannee. The
grass is grown up and it needs to be
cut. There is also an area that needs to
be cleaned up. He asked for Mr. Reed
to take care of the situation.
GAIL LOVELACE:
There is a blind spot where a boat
is parked on the county right of way.
The signs need a spot to be put down
on the comer of Dyals Park in a
uniform type.
There was discussion about the
Suwannee Chamber taking care of this.
Went to zoning about a permit to
put the signs up and what is good for
one should be good for another.
Commissioner Lamb said that
something needs to be done about
where the signs can be put up: such as
the chain length fence. There needs to
be a specified size for the signs.
The Board says that there isn't
supposed to be any signs on the county
right of way.
The motion for approval of
Comm. In that district and to get with
the Road Department was made by
Commissioner Lamb and seconded by
Commissioner Valentine. Board
Approved.
The approximate size is 24" to 30"


for new signs.
Commissioner Hays asked to
abstain from any voting because of his
being in the sign production business.
Commissioner Lamb brought up
some limbs that are hanging over a
school bus stop that needs to be cut
down.
Commissioner Land is in
agreement but the machine is broke.
Commissioner Land said that the
Yellowjacket people cannot get their
boats out.
Commissioner Hays said that
there are some issues with the permit
for Munden Creek so that is being put
off,

American
Legion News
"WASHINGTON The
Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA) is reaching out to inform
wartime veterans and surviving
spouses of deceased wartime
veterans about an under used,
special monthly pension benefit
called Aid and Attendance.
"Veterans have earned this benefit
,by their service to our nation,"
said Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Jim Nicholson. "We want to
ensure that every veteran or
surviving spouse who qualifies has
the chance to apply."
Although this is not a new
program, not everyone is aware of
his or her potential eligibility. The
Aid and Attendance pension
benefit may be available to
wartime veterans and surviving
spouses who have in-home care or
who live in nursing-homes or
assisted-living facilities.
Many elderly veterans and
surviving spouses whose incomes
are above the congressionally
mandated legal limit for a VA
pension may still be eligible for
the special monthly Aid and
Attendance benefit if they have
large medical expenses, including
nursing home expenses, for which
they do not receive
reimbursement.
To qualify, claimants must be
incapable of self support and in
need of regular personal
assistance. The basic criteria for
the Aid and Attendance benefit
include the inability to feed
oneself, to dress and undress
without assistance, or to take care
of one's own bodily needs.
People who are bedridden or need
help to adjust special prosthetic or
orthopedic devices may also be
eligible, as well as those who have
a physical or mental injury or
illness that requires regular
assistance to protect them from
hazards or dangers in their daily
environment.
For a wartime veteran or
surviving spouse to qualify for this
special monthly pension, the
veteran must have served at least
90 days of active military service,
one day of which was during a
period of war, and be discharged
under conditions other than
dishonorable. Wartime veterans
who entered active duty on or after
September 8, 1980, (October 16,
1981, for officers) must have
completed at least 24 continuous
months of military service or the
period for which they were
ordered to active duty.
If all requirements are met,
VA determines eligibility for the
Aid and Attendance benefit by
adjusting for un-reimbursed
medical expenses from the
veteran's or surviving spouse's
total household income. If the
remaining income amount falls
below the annual income threshold
for the Aid and Attendance
benefit, VA pays the difference
between the claimant's household
income and the Aid and
Attendance threshold.
The Aid and Attendance
income threshold for a veteran
without dependents is now
$18,234 annually. The threshold
increases to $21,615 if a veteran
has one dependent, and by $1,866
for each additional dependent.
The annual Aid and Attendance
threshold for a surviving spouse
alone is $11,715. This threshold
increases to $13,976 if there is one
dependent child, and by $1,866 for
each additional child.
Additional information and
assistance in applying for the Aid
and Attendance benefit
may be obtained by calling 1-800-
827-1000. Applications may be
submitted on-line at
http://www.vabenefits.vba.va.gov/
vonapp/main.asp. Information is
also available from any local
veterans service organization, or
your County Service Officer."


Remember our Armed Forces
all over the world in your thoughts
and prayers, and here at home,
watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, their widows and the


families of those called to active
duty in service to America.
For God and Country Wayne
