Dixie SO Joins Project Lifesaver
SThe Dixie County Sheriff's Office has joined with Project Lifesaver in "Bringing Loved One's
Hi~re."
Project Lifesaver was established in April of 1999 as an initiative of the 43rd Search and Rescue
Company of the Chesapeake Sheriff's Office and will be brought to Dixie County in February 2007.
Deputies with the Dixie County Sheriff's Office (DCSO) recently
attended two days of intense training, which included classroom
and field training. Beginning February 12th, the Sheriff's Office
will start taking applications for those wishing to participate in
Project Lifesaver by calling 498-1462.
Project Lifesaver's mission is to use state-of-the-art
,-' 4 technology in assisting those who care for victims of Alzheimer's
and other Related Mental Dysfunction Disorders (ARMD) and
victims who become lost. These victims include the elderly and
even the youngest in our community who are afflicted with Down
syndrome and autism. There are no boundaries no one is
immune!
Victims of ARMD tend to wander from their homes. The
Dixie County Sheriffs Office places personalized radio
transmitters on any identified person with ARMD. These
-_Sheriff Dewey Hatcher transmitters assist caregivers and local emergency agencies in
locating these victims who cannot help themselves. See "LIFESAVER" page 7B


Cross City Airport Welcomes New

Dixie Aviation Manager


Dixie County Chamber


Holds 60th Chamber Dinner
Bellot Hands Over Gavel To New Chamber President Julie Squires


Clint Beauchamp is the newly hired Di;ie Aviation manager.


By Briar Keathley
Dixie Aviation, LLC
recently hired a new manager
to oversee the Cross City
Airport. For Clint Beauchamp,
the newly acquired position is
a proud highlight in his career
with Dixie Aviation.
"I really like the job,"
Beauchamp said. "I'm
Overseeing the airport in
general and the airport's best
interest."
Some of Beauchamp's job
duties will include fixed base
operations, assisting customers
flying in and out of the airport,
acting as an information source
to tourists, adding his opinion


and aid in acquiring funding for airport improvements, and participating on the airport advisory
committee.
"I'll basically be doing a little bit of everything," Beauchamp said.
Beauchamp was offered the job by Joe Anderson, whom he began flying for about five years
ago.
He first started flying a King Air twin-engine turbo prop for Anderson. Since then, he now flies a
small business jet. which he will continue to fly for Anderson.
Beauchamp, a life-long resident of Chiefland, said he always had a passion for flying. Several
years ago, he went to the infamous school in Daytona for seven years and learned how to fly.
After learning to fly, Beauchamp went to college for four years, but decided to "get out" and
went to work for Dixie Aviation. The company has provided Beauchamp with a fulfilling career and
he looks forward to this new step as manager.

New Western Wear Store In Old Town
By Briar Keathley ,,/ ".' ,.
Flying Hawk Enterprises,
Inc. recently opened a new .,
western wear store in Old .
Town. The store, Flying Hawk
Western Wear, carries a wide ,.,,
array of men's, women's and
children's "lthi
accessories, and boots, as well i t
as a few home furnishing
items.
"We needed a western
wear store in Dixie," said store
owner, Dale Joslin, explaining
why he decided to open the
new store. ...,,,%,.
A few months ago, Flying
Hawk Enterprises, Inc. bought The hat selection is large at the new Flying Hawk Western Wear
out a local western wear store store off US 19. You are sure to find one to your liking and tofit.
and moved the business next door to the Flying Hawk building supply store, which has operated
since 1990 in Old Town.
"So far, the general public seems to be very acceptant," Joslin said.
As one of very few stores in Dixie County selling western wear items, Flying Hawk Western
Wear is expected to become quite a popular shopping venue. Already carrying several brands,
including Double H Work Boots, Justin Boots, Bailey Hats, and Northern Woodcrafters Furniture,
the store will continue to carry more brands as time goes on, according to Joslin.
"We will disperse more brands, more and more all the time," Joslin said.
Currently, he is working with representatives from Stetson, Wrangler and Rocky to carry those
companies' items. With Rocky, the goal is to carry the boots Dixie County correctional officers are
required to wear. See "WESTERN WEAR"page 5A

The Peace Prize for Rush?


Last week, we learned that former Vice-President Al Gore has
been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. That figures. Admittedly,
the prize has been awarded to some worthy individuals over the
years, but recipients haven't always been so meritorious.
Only three US presidents have been so honored. Theodore
Roosevelt received the prize in 1906, Woodrow Wilson in 1919 and
Jimmy Carter in 2002. Wilson led the nation to victory in World
War I, TR is remembered for launching the Panama Canal project,
and Carter, of course, for giving away the Panama Canal.
Other notable Nobel laureates include Kofi ("the corrupt")
Annan, erstwhile Secretary-General of the United Nations;
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who shared the prize with Israeli
leaders Shimon Perez and Yitzhak Rabin in 1994 (Arafat reneged on
his end of the peace agreement); and of course 1990 winner Mikhail
Gorbachev, the Soviet leader who forfeited the Cold War in
response to some heads-up TR-style "diplomacy" ("Speak softly and
carry a big stick") during Ronald Reagan's presidency.
Just a note, FYI, the two most recent winners were named
Muhammad and Mohamed, respectively. If that doesn't concern
you, perhaps it should.
And now we have Al Gore apparently in serious contention for
the Nobel Peace Prize. Norwegian lawmakers from opposing parties
:agreed that he deserved the honor because as Conservative(?) MP
Boerge Brende put it, "A prerequisite for winning the Nobel Peace
:Prize is making a difference, and Al Gore has made a difference."
'How eminently profound.
Gore's unsuccessful efforts to get the United States to sign on to
Sthe Kyoto Treaty was cited as a principal qualifier, as was his Oscar-
*nominated documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," a film
:production somewhat on the order of Orson Welles' 1938 radio
:effort, "War of the Worlds"--the main difference being that the
Latter item wasn't intended to be taken seriously.
It should come as no surprise that a leading global warming
Salarmist was nominated for this singular honor, and I rather expect
that the Hollywood crowd will be hard-put to deny him the coveted
:Oscar for his efforts to convince residents of California and points
east that the freezing temperatures they are experiencing has
:something to do with the polar ice caps melting, and that this
Phenomenon is the result of carbon dioxide emissions and bovine
flatulence resulting from human activity. I always thought CO2 was
what trees inhaled (well, sort of) and that they exhaled the oxygen
we animal species' breathe. As for that other problem, it seems like
we should be able to solve it by feeding our cows Gas-X; but then,
what do I know? I certainly didn't invent the Internet!
S Right on the heels of Gore's nomination, another group threw
:Rush Limbaugh's hat in the ring for him. Limbaugh, of course, is the
Nation's number one radio talk show host. So, how does that put him
in line for a Nobel Peace Prize? According to Landmark Legal
Foundation President Mark R. Levin, "Rush is the foremost
advocate for freedom and democracy in the world today." (Rush
serves on Landmark's Board of Advisors, so this is starting to look
like a "favorite son" nomination.)
All right, but the Nobel Committee is looking for someone "who
shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between
nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the
holding of peace congresses."
In other words, a pacifist. I don't think Rush Limbaugh qualifies.
But then, his chances of winning aren't all that great, and I'm not
Assure he'd accept the prize even if it was offered.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
Suppose we agree that placement of the Ten Commandments
monument at the very courthouse itself was a mistake of good
intentions. Where might it be placed that would be more
appropriate? There are many sites: the football stadium; near the
entrance to the high school (although the misspelling sends an
unfortunate message); the city park near the courthouse. Possibly
other locations, too. (You might have a contest to decide!)
It is important to keep in mind the dignity of the monument.
These are, after all, basic informal rules honored by our ancestors
since the 13th century BCE. They are not codified in our laws,
except by implication, and therein lies the problem of putting the
monument at the courthouse, which represents the source of law
we all are obliged to obey and, moreover, is where legal
judgments are rendered. Those judgments are based on the
Florida Code and the United States Code of Laws enacted by our
representatives in the Legislature and Congress.
I make this point to distinguish the American system of justice
from, for example, some Islamic societies where Sharia is both
the religious code of conduct and the basis for legal decisions. If
we had that system, the Bible might be used to.decide points of
law. Thus a judge could determine that an eye for an eye is an
appropriate remedy in a case of assault, just as the Sharia
prescribes amputation of the left hand at the wrist for a thief.
Although possibly effective punishment, we would call this "cruel
and unusual," in keeping with our Constitution.
If you think about it much, you can see that the Bible is not a
Legal Code, which is why the American Founders decided on a
secular legal system under a Constitution as the basic law. Judges
decide our cases, not preachers, even when preachers might show
greater wisdom. This is one of the trade-offs we make to ensure
freedom for ourselves and each other. And this is why the Ten
Commandments monument doesn't belong at the Courthouse.
Most anywhere else, but not at the Courthouse. It sends the
wrong message.
Think about it, and when you're ready, move it.

Go Online For Your 1099
By Clif Copeland,
Social Security Public Affairs Specialist, Gainesville, Fl
With tax season well on its way, millions of taxpayers
are busy gathering all the forms and documents needed to file
federal, state and local tax returns. It is important to remember
that some people who receive Social Security may have to pay
taxes on a portion of their benefits. For them, a Social Security
Benefit Statement (Form SSA-1099) is an important tax
document.
The SSA-1099s for tax year 2006 were all automatically
mailed to beneficiaries by January 31, 2007. If you or someone
you know who receives Social Security has not yet received a
Form SSA-1099 for 2006, you can request a replacement online
at www.socialsecurity.gov .
The SSA-1099 shows the total amount of benefits
received in the previous year and is used to determine if any
benefits are subject to tax. You may need the SSA-1099 to i
complete your federal income tax return. The federal tax laws
about Social Security benefits state that:
* Up to 50 percent of Social Security, benefits may be
subject to income tax for individuals with a combined income
between $25,000 and $34,000, or for couples with a combined
income between $32,000 and $44,000; and
* Up to 85 percent of Social Security benefits may be
subject to income tax for individuals with a combined income
above $34,000, or for couples with a combined income above
$44,000. (Note: "Combined income" means adjusted gross
income, plus nontaxable interest, plus one-half of the social
Security benefits.)
Less than a third of current Social Security beneficiaries
have incomes that exceed the thresholds, requiring them to pay
taxes on a portion of their Social Security benefits. For more


information on taxation of Social Security benefits, call the IRS'
toll-free telephone number, 1-800-829-3676 and ask for
Publication 554, Older Americans' Tax Guide. The publication is
also available from the IRS website at www.irs.gov.
For more information about Social Security, or to
request a replacement SSA-1099, visit www.socialsecurity.gov.
Or you can call Social Security's toll-free number, 1-800-772-
1213 (TTYI-800-325-0778) and ask for a replacement SSA-1099.

charges of Possession of
Cocaine With Intent to Sell.
According to the report, a
deputy observed a vehicle
stopped on private property
around 9 p.m. The deputy
made contact with the land
owner who stated they (those
inside the vehicle) should not
be on his property.
The deputy then
approached the parked vehicle
and was informed by the
passengers that they were
parked at the location because
they were having car problems.
The driver of the vehicle then
drove off and left.
At that point, deputies did a
brief search of the area where
the vehicle had been parked.
They located a pill bottle on
the ground, which was later
identified as having crack
cocaine inside.
The deputies set up a
surveillance of the area and
approximately 15 minutes later
the vehicle returned to the spot
where it was parked. Deputies
observed Godbolt pick up the
pill bottle. He was immediately
arrested and charged.
Godbolt's bond was set at
$50,000. As of press time, he
remained in the Dixie County
Jail.

Spotted Seatrout Fishing

Closed In North Florida
If you're an avid spotted seatrout fisherman, February is a key
month to remember.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission his
designated February as a closed month for spotted seatrout (alio
called "speckled trout") in Coastal waters of the state's Northeast
and Northwest seatrout regions.
Simply put, anglers may continue to fish for spotted seatrout in
the affected'areas during February, but all fish must-lie
immediately released unharmed.
Northeast Seatrout Region waters include state waters north 6f
the Flagler-Volusia County line to the Florida-Georgia border, arid
adjacent federal Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) water.
Northwest Seatrout Region waters include all state waters norfh
and west of a line running due west from the westernmost point f
Fred Howard Park Causeway, which is approximately 1.f7
nautical miles south of the Pasco-Pinellas county line to the
Florida-Alabama border, and adjacent federal EEZ waters.
During all months except February, anglers in the Northeast
and Northwest seatrout regions may keep no more than five
spotted seatrout measuring from 15-20 inches total length, with
one trout exceeding 20 inches total length. The bag limit in the
state's South Region is four fish per angler per day.

up homeless where they get hit
by cars, starved, injured, or at
best, placed with us to help
find them homes. Another of
our goals is to find as many
homes as possible for the
homeless animals in our
county. While waiting to be
adopted, these animals incur
medical expenses and food
bills.

-donation, please send it to:

member, but is involved with several agencies that help to promote the Nature Coast Trail of which
SDixie is a part of.
The Raymond E. Warren Award was presented to Debbie Dembo for her work with the Pop
, Warner Football Program and as a valuable volunteer for the Chamber.
Mr. Joe Anderson, Jr. accepted the O.K. Jones Award on behalf of Anderson Columbia Inc. Prior
to announcing the recipient of the award, it was noted that O.K. Jones's wife. Carolyn, who usually
helps to present the award, had been in a serioty accident on Christmas Eve and was still in critical
condition. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ms. Jones, giving her and her family strength.
The Business Longevity Award went to Stephenson Septic and Liles Auto Parts. Both of these
businesses are second generation family owned and operated businesses, enduring many changes
over the years.
Two Outstanding Volunteer Awards were given this year. The first to Janice Smith for her work
"behind the scenes," and to Randall Music for all he does for the United Christian Services and Toys
for Tots Program.
Outgoing Chamber President Arthur Bellot gave special thanks to two people he stated that he
could always depend on, Julie Squires and Bob Leichner. Both of these folks give an unbelievable
amount of time to making Red Belly Day the success it is.
Kathryn McInnis was proud to present Bellot with a special plaque from the Chamber for the
outstanding leadership he gave to the Chamber over the past two years. Bellot was appreciative of
the recognition and stated it was his honor to serve. With that said, Bellot turned the gavel over to
the newly elected Dixie County Chamber President, Julie Squires.
Serving with Squires are Vice President Debbie Deweese, Secretary Angie Bush, and Treasurer
Debbie Dembo. The new Board of Directors for 2007 are: Phyllis Hunt, Kay McCallister, Russ
-McCallister, Rosa Lee Johnson, Gary Poore, Bob Leichner, Mike Cassidy, Rev. Howard
Grimmenga, Cindy Bellot, Kathryn McInnis and Arthur Bellot.
The meeting was adjourned...and now the work begins. If you would like to become a member
of the Chamber and/or volunteer your time, you may call 352-498-5454.

"WESTERN WEAR"
Continued from page 1A


Whether you are a cowgirl or cowboy, you will be sure to find that perfect outfit at the Flying Hawk
Western Store, located off US 19 in Old Town.
Also, as time goes on, Flying Hawk Western Wear will move into a larger 3,200-square-foot
building, Joslin said, which will allow the business to carry a larger selection of items.
For now, the relatively new business will continue to, as all new businesses must do, take one
thing at a time, while keeping customers satisfied and coming back. With 17 years experience in
customer satisfaction as a building supply merchant, the western wear store will strive to do the
same.
"We certainly appreciate the respect of the people of Dixie and the Tri-County Area," Joslin said.
"They have catered to us and made us a successful business."
Flying Hawk Western Store is located on the east side of US 19 in Old Town a half-mile before
the US 19 and Hwy 349 intersection. Store hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The store is closed on Sunday and Monday. For additional information, please call 352-542-9038.

Behold the
Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3
S"The Unseen"
SCont. From Last Week
I the Day of the Lord, say
Darkness is transitory, temporal
and therefore it is not real. 0, you
'say it is very real, No darkness
isn't real at all, it is only the
absence of light. A simple truth -
ill your have to do dissipate
darkness is to turn on the LIGHT.
But you cannot reverse such an
order, you cannot turn on another
switch and fill the room with
cd~kness to dissipate light, it just
: f'lot done. The only way to get
darkness is to withdraw the light.
Take the light away and the
-darkness is there, but turn on the
S light and where did all that
darkness go? I the Day of the
Lord, say It was dissipated back
into' nothingness from which it
came. Therefore it wasn't actually
real after all, it just appears so for
,. limited time, till the light came.
You thought it was real because
byou were busy looking at existing
%conditions and you were becoming
%very conscious of that which was
Temporary transitory.
g The more you allow your mind
to dwell on it the darker it seems
*to get, until an horror of the
Darkness will settle over you. But
he scripture says "I will make the
Starkness LIGHT before them."
$sa. 42:16. 0, glory, Hallelujah: I
the Day of the Lord, say We need
4o now look beyond the darkness
to behold the light, because light
controls it all. I wonder, what do
we look at and see what are
churches looking at today? They
see darkness gloomy, cold,
foreboding, terrifying darkness. In
Genesis, Chapter 15, we read of a
time when God was dealing
specially with Abraham, and
Abraham was making a sacrifice,
beating off the fowl of the air all
that afternoon, then when "The
sun was going down...lo, an
horror of great darkness fell upon
him. Sure, light was leaving with
the setting of the sun and darkness
began to manifest itself. When for
a small moment the light is taken
away thee is nothing left but a
darkness." Behold, a smoking
furnace and a burning lamp" came
on the scene next. So, Abraham,
what do you see now? Horrible
darkness? Or can you look past all
of the darkness and see that
burning lamp with with all the
glorious promises? Some people
are so busily engaged in preaching
about the darkness, describing its
gloom and despair, that they never
look past'it to behold a BURNING
LAMP, a token of the presence of
God, speaking great hope and
promise for the future. I the Day
of the Lord, say we can become so
involved looking at the temporal,
or transitory things, that we cannot
see anything beyond them. So
horror struck with Isaiah 60:2
how the DARKNESS SHALL
COVER THE EARTH, GROSS
DARKNESS THE PEOPLE that
we miss the rest of that verse and
the next one, "BUT THE LORD
SHALL ARISE UPON THEE
AND HIS GLORY SHALL BE
seen upon thee. Read the rest of
Isaiah 60:2. Love you very much.
Cont. next week.

It was good to be in church again Sunday, listening to the
beautiful hymns and pondering the .wonderful messages God had
in store for us through his infallible Word. Bro. Billy chose his
text from Mark 5:1-10, and proceeded to deliver a most moving
message. Again, we were pleased to have visitors, and welcome
them back anytime, along with any potential visitors.
There are many people on our prayer list and the prayer lists
of all the other churches in our area...please be praying for all these

Forever In Our

iHearts
God looked around His
garden ind He found
an empty place.
He then looked down
upon this earth
and saw your beautiful face.
SHe put His arms around you
and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be
beautiful, He always
takes the best.
He knew that you were in
Toni Wester Hatch pain. He knew that you
would never get well on earth again.
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered,
"Peace Be Thine."
He then took you up to Heaven with hands gentle and so kind.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
They say memories are golden, well maybe that is true. I never
wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have diedf:
In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place, no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, I'd
walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
Love,
Mark & Tyson

The Word Made Flesh
Mark, Number, & Name of the Beast
Continued from last week.
I, the son of man, say it is hard to believe that Saint John looked into
Heaven and saw these beasts "in" and "around" the throne. This is what
happened and John wrote what he saw. Now remember, do not look at
the throne of god as a natural seat sitting there for someone to sit on.
Don't imagine a throne-like chair of some kind. We must remember
Heaven is God's throne, and the earth is His footstool. (Isaiah 66:1) Here
sitting in the midst of Heaven (throne) was one of many colors. Even
thought He did not have a figure, John could see Him. Here in the midst
of the throne are FOUR beasts. We must remember that Heaven is the
throne of God. These beasts started way back in the Garden of Eden,
where they split into FOUR heads out of there came FOUR powers.
Out of these came FOUR winds coming through the Heavenly world.
The MARK OF THE BEAST was in there working. That carnal nature of
man came right along.
The reason God's man accepted it and brought it with him, was that
man fell under death, eating of the wrong tree and died. Man fell under
the very thing that God gave us victory over, through Jesus Christ. I, the
son of man, say Jesus died and rose again. I am talking about death
which is eternal separation from God. I have cried out many times, quit
trying to go into the hole in the ground and start looking at the coming of
the resurrection of the dead. This is why we were baptized for the dead,
so that we could rise in the newness of life. Remember, we are going up
- not coming down.
Read Romans 6:3-4. FOUR BEASTS; now watch where they were,
right in Heaven in the throne and round about the throne. I, the son of
man, say please notice: These beasts were full of eyes, but watch where
these eyes were. They were before each beast and behind each beast
This meant each beast had the ability to see backwards and frontward.
God will help you see what He wants you to see about that which is to
come. And He will open up the past to where you can see what had
already been. Each beast had eyes behind him and eyes in front of him.
Each BEAST was FULL OF EYES. Notice!
There was no spiritual vision of anything that was taking place in
present tense form. They cold see BEFORE and BEHIND, but could not
see the MIDDLE. They could not help anyone see the day that had come
upon the human race. Please stay up with me each week. Continued.

[ How Can The Social Secuity Disabilty Spedalst At Integrated Famly Services Help You? '

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

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY. FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2007


10A

Xieg lighting


This week we bring you a sighting that is not technically in Dixie County (as is normally the
rule), but in neighboring Fanning Springs at the Point of View mall off US 19. It's a "can't miss"
item, in the store that is locally famous for its eclectic items. It is a solid wood rocking horse that
stands 6 feet tall, is 4 feet wide and 11 feet long!
The artist is Rudy Prazen of Key West, master carpenter and wood sculptor. Prazen found the
Point of View through a friend, Camille McElwee of Steinhatchee. He was looking for a place to
display his gigantic horse and the Point of View had the room. Plus the unique horse fits right in
with the other treasures housed in the 6,000 sq ft building.
The impressive sculpture is made of mahogany and bent oak. It started out as a carousel horse,
but as it developed, Prazen went in the direction of a large rocking horse. It took him 2 years to
complete the masterpiece; working on the piece on and off as time permitted. Since its
completion, the horse has been a great party piece. In fact, Prazen noted that the horse can be ridden
by adults, due to the fact he built it to work! Besides the beautiful wood work, the horse is perfectly
balanced and easy to ride.
Prazen, originally from California, was young when he began working with wood. His first
piece was a "wave" made from plywood. It was part of the Master's Festival in Laguna Beach, very
impressive for a first work.
He would later move to Tennessee, later heading south, till he could not go any farther; which
was Key West, Florida. Prazen has a cabinet business in the Keys, and makes his carvings on the
side. Over the years he has been commissioned to carve other pieces, mostly cartoon characters.
Some of the more famous ones were of Mickey and Mini Mouse, Pluto, Bullwinkle and Spiderman.
In fact, his Spiderman was made 20 years ago for the then CEO of HBO.
This spring, Prazen will be visiting his good friend in Steinhatchee and plans on taking advantage
of having some quiet time to continue his sculpting.
The rocking horse will continue to be displayed at Point of View until sold. Whether you are in
the market for a giant horse or not, it is worth the visit to see this amazing piece of art.
The Dixie County Advocate is actively seeking unique information for the Dixie County Sightings column. Call or

was not as sweet as it has been in the past two
years as the Lady Bears came up one run short
:Y
with the Bulldogs winning 4-3. The Lady
Bears jumped out to a 2 -0 lead in the first
.inning with a single by Jaime VanAernam to
:right field followed by Bear pitcher Caroline
McClellen making it to first on an error by the
-first baseman. Jessica Chewning hit the ball
-down the first baseline and distracted the first
-baseman so that VanAernam could score from
second. Kayla Clemens hit the ball to the
:second baseman, scoring McClellen for the 2nd
-run of the inning.
Pitcher Caroline struck out the first two
:batters for the Bulldog in their first at bat and
:got out of the inning with a scorching line
-drive being caught by third baseman Ashley
Cannon.
In the second inning Michelle Cannon
got on base with a single to right field followed
by a single by Ashley Cannon. Michelle
Cannon scored on a passed ball to give the
Bears their third run. Taylor County scored
their first run in the second inning on a number
of errors by the Lady Bears. The first two
batters got on base on errors with the third
banner being hit by a pitch. McClellen struck
oout the last three batters to end the inning.
Chewning and Clemens both had singles
in the third inning but could not muster a run.
In the third for the Bulldogs, J. Wiggins
got on base on an error with the next batter
flying out for out number one. McClellen
struck out the third batter when Korie Wilson
hit a long fly ball to center field. Vanessa
Holllis made the play but was unable to hold
.on-the ball allowing the two runs to score. The


next batter hit the ball back to the pitcher and
was thrown out at first.
In the top of the fifth inning, VanAernam
hit a beautiful long fly ball into left field but
was run down trying to stretch the double into
a triple. McClellen got put out on a throw from
shortstop to first. Chewning was robbed of a
hit by the left fielder when she made a diving
catch and hung on to the ball for the third out
of the inning.
For the Bulldogs in the fifth, McClellen
struck out the first batter and the second batter
managed a single to center field. The third
batter flew out to Hollis in centerfield and the
third out was made when the batter hit the ball
back to the pitcher and was thrown out at first.
The Lady Bears started the sixth inning
with a fly ball by Clemens to the second
baseman for the first out. Britni Robson
reached base on a single to left-center field and
advanced to third on a single by Mandy

to the first baseman and McClellen hit the ball
back to the pitcher for the third out of the
inning and the end of the ballgame.

FWC Announces Annual Manatee Synoptic

Survey Numbers
In the annual manatee synoptic survey conducted Jan. 30 Feb. 1, the Florida Fish and Wildlifi
Conservation Commission (FWC) reported a preliminary count of 2,812 manatees statewide.
A team of 16 observers (14 by air and two on the ground) from eight organizations'counted
1,412 on Florida's Atlantic Coast and 1,400 on the state's Gulf Coast.
A synoptic survey is a simultaneous count of manatees over a broad area. The survey results are
not used directly to evaluate the status of the manatee population. Although the survey results are not
an estimate of population size, this survey provides researchers with a minimum number of manateeS
in Florida waters at the time of the count. In addition, the surveys provide a snapshot of manatee
distribution around the state.
State law requires an annual count, weather permitting, of manatees in Florida waters. The
synoptic survey meets this requirement. The best conditions for the synoptic survey occur during the
winter. FWC follows a prescription for favorable weather conditions for manatee surveys as weather;
and manatee behavior affect synoptic survey counts. This year, warm winter conditions and changing
weather over the course of the survey influenced the resulting count.
"Deteriorating weather conditions posed a challenge to observers. However, despite the weather;
we counted record numbers of manatees in Tampa Bay, Blue Spring and Brevard County," said Dr:
Holly Edwards, the FWC biologist in charge of the annual count.
Researchers at FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute are developing new survey methods
that would make future aerial surveys more accurate and less dependent on weather conditions.
For more information about manatees and synoptic surveys, visit http://research.MyFWC.com.
To report a dead or injured manatee, call 1-888-404-FWCC.

In Renmembraince of Me

Remember all the times
You could have given encouragement in time of need.

And keep my commandments deep within your hearts to stay.
Remember to always do well to those who trespass against you.
Remember to always speak my name and do the works I know.

Remember to always speak truth in whatever you do.
Remember my love is like the rivers that do overflow.
Remember to always stay rooted and grounded like a tree.
These I tell you, do in remembrance of me.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2007

I Check out our website @ www.dcadvocate.net


Continued from page 1A
January 2007 totals. The Dixie EMS responded to 326 calls, traveling 20,144 miles, using 2,534.09 gallons of
fuel. Of the 326 calls, 184 patients were transported to area hospitals. Seven of those responses were trauma
alerts, 11 flights and 9 mutual aid calls. Year to date, the EMS has responded to 1,094 calls, traveling 49,257
miles.
Jerry Prater, Veterans Service Officer for Dixie County, recently returned from a trading class. -lc relayed
to the Board that he had learned several new ways to expedite veterans' claims. If you have a question about
your rights as a veteran, you may contact Prater at 498-1246. He also stated he will be attending another class in
May.
Dick Edwards, Community Programs Consultant, reported on CDBG and SHIP programs. The Board
approved a revision in its housing assistance' priority ranking to include a "freezing of ranking" during a grant
cycle and to elevate "need" to equal the ranking pribrity of the elderly applicant. This will help those who, in
the past, were at the top of the list for help, only to be "bumped" when a new elderly person applies for help.
'(The elderly status has a high ranking.)
Edwards also reported to the Board that the county had committed and/or spent its entire allocation of
Hurricane Housing Recovery and 2005-06 SHIP funding.
With $125,000 pledged towards a $250,000 CDBG match, there is approximately $190,000 remaining in
the 2006-07 SHIP fund. The good news is that the 2007-08 allocation of $350,000 should be released by July,
2007.
Arthur Bellot, County Coordinator informed the Board his office had received official word that the Florida
Department of Corrections has contacted with a title surveying and environmental company to look into five
potential sites for a proposed prison annex. Dixie County is one of those sites and it is the Board's hope, that
we will be chosen. The addition of an annex would bring a number of jobs to the area, helping with the overall
economic situation in Dixie.
Frank Darabi, of Darabi & Associates, has worked as the County's engineer for many years. One of the
projects he has been associated with has been solid waste. Darabi came before the Board to give an update on a
state mandate that has been passed concerning the covering of the site at the transfer station where trucks
transfer garbage from one truck to another. The mandate states that area must be covered to prevent rainwater
from getting into the trucks and leaking out onto the soil.
It is estimated that this project will cost the county between $1 to $2 million dollars. The other bad news is
this mandate will not be subsidized with any grant monies. Darabi has applied for a variance in order to give
the county five years to adhere to the rule.
Along the same lines, Darabi noted that the construction and demolition debris landfill at the transfer station
.is close to reaching its maximum capacity. A committee was formed to look into this issue. Darabi, along with
Bellot, Commissioner James Valentine, Solid Waste Coordinator Joe Ruth and County Attorney Leenette
McMillan will serve on the committee.
Mike Cassidy spoke on behalf of the Airport Advisory Committee. Cassidy, who has served on the
Committee in the past, was pleased to announce that yhile the committee was in the process of reforming, it has
'been very pro-active.
The Committee has, upon the suggestion of the Department of Transportation (DOT), requested a copy of
by-laws from the Keystone Heights Airport Authority Board. At a recent meeting at the airport, DOT
commended the Keystone Heights Board for their work at their rural facility. DOT felt they would be an
,excellent example for Dixie's airport to form their committee's set of by-laws with. Once reviewed, the Cross
City Committee will make amendments and then adopt their own set of by-laws.
Cassidy stated that the Committee will make it possible for the airport to have a hands-on relationship with
DOT and other state and federal agencies that will be able to help with the airport's growth.
The Committee will work with the Commission, with meetings and plans being coordinated with
Commissioner Troy Johnson and Bellot.
The next Board meeting will be held Thursday, February 15th at 6:00 PM in the Commission Room.

Field Trip
cThe Steinhatchee Garden
Club went on their monthly
field trip Tues., Jan 23, 2007 to
Sthe Thomas Center and
Gardens in Gainesville. If you
Shave not been there you should
Sgo. It is very interesting to see
kohow the wealthier of
Gainesville lived back in the
early 1900s. Major William
prpetnThomas bought the house,
..which was under construction
.. .and not completed, and
*; completed it and moved it in
1910 with his family. In the
1920s Major Thomas
converted his residential
property into the Hotel Thomas
with 94 guest rooms, three
The group- from left to right, Guests Betty Seirsma and Katy dining rooms and four lounges.
Bracker, members Judy Gantenbein, Elaine Howell and Jerry Hotel Thomas became a
Gantenbein (yes, we do have male members). popular social center for the
town and the university and tourists for 40 years. It was leased to Santa Fe Junior College for seven
years while their new campus was being built. The Thomas Center was put on the National Historic
Register of Historic Places in 1973 and purchased by the City of Gainesville in 1974. There are
rooms that still can be rented for weddings, seminars, etc today. It is worth going to see for the
historic viewpoint and the gardens are very nice as well.
After our visit we all went to the Olive Garden Restaurant for dinner and enjoyed getting to
know each other better.
Linda Johnson was the coordinator for the field trip, well done Linda.
Watch for our next field trip.

Harvesting "Fruit" from the Family Tree
Knowin vour genealogv can better prepare you for health risks


Discovering your family history can be
illuminating. Discovering your family's health
history can save your life.
As the holidays get into full swing this
season, family get-togethers are an excellent
opportunity for finding your roots. The
information from a family "health" history can,
among other things, aid in early detection of
medical conditions, determine your risk for
certain diseases and dictate medical tests that
you should have. But where do you start? Who
do you talk to? And if you learn something
what does it mean for you? Here are some
ways to prepare for a possibly life-saving
"climb" through your family tree.
Years ago, keeping track of family was
easier because the family "fruit" didn't fall far
from the family "tree." In today's mobile
society, keeping track of family history, health
or otherwise, can be challenging.
But if your family is celebrating the
holidays together, these upcoming weeks may
be the perfect opportunity to ask questions
about illnesses that may run in your family.
Some key features to look for include diseases
that start earlier than they should, common
diseases in close relatives, and combinations of
diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
I Neel Karnani, M.D., medical director for
,.Haven Hospice, explains, "Research has
:shown that diseases such as cancer, heart
Disease, diabetes and asthma have a familial
,tendency and therefore carry a higher risk for
-family members if these diseases are prevalent
in the family history."
Some pertinent information, such as death
,records, may be available through the
;government's Department of Vital Records,
family insurance records, newspaper and
library archives, and cemetery and funeral
,records.
But your relatives are the best source of
.knowledge about your ancestral health history.
.Some questions the Mayo Clinic suggests
;asking are:


G- O-





















Are







--
0 "- 0



Q --
t- L
.Q) r.0
c, Cu


What major diseases are prevalent in
the family history?
Do family members have a tendency
towards other conditions?
Has a family member suffered
infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths or infant
deaths? If so, what was the cause?
Is there a history of birth defects or
learning disabilities in the family?
What is the family's dominant racial
or ethnic background?
Is there any other information relevant
to the family health history?
Ideally, you want a history that spreads as
wide across the family and back as many
generations as possible. Ancestry.com suggests
going back four generations. Once you have
gathered a solid picture of your family history,
take it to your doctor. The two of you can look
it over, measure the health risks and create a
plan for early testing and other preventive
measures.
Take the opportunity this holiday season to
talk with your relatives and discover what
illnesses have affected your family in the past
and are occurring right now. If you don't get
around to it this season, you can send oult a
letter, an e-mail, or make a phone call. If your
relatives aren't comfortable with responding,
kindly explain to them why understanding
your family health history is so important.
More research is available through the
Mayo Clinic (www.mayclinic.com
), the Center for
Disease Control (http://www.cdc.gov), the
Health and Human Services Web site
(), where
a vast amount of information regarding family
related illnesses and an online Family Health
Portrait tool is available. If you prefer to fill
out a paper version you can contact Haven
Hospice's Transitions Program Coordinator,
Larry Goble at (800) 330-2858 or

Ruth Rains Middle School Staff


Education Commissioner John Winn
recently announced that Ruth Rains Middle
School (RRMS) has been awarded the "Shoot
for the Stars" flag for meeting the Florida
Department of Education's challenge in 2006.
Florida middle schools were challenged to
increase both the percentage of students
reading at or above grade level and the
percentage of students making learning gains
compared to the previous year. RRMS met that

B:y Terri Langford
Starting off the Rotary Student Guest list for 2007 were Miss
'Cally Marie House and Mr. Nicholas "Nick" Cravey. Both Dixie
County High School seniors gave excellent speeches and
represented their school well.
:: House spoke about "The Importance of Photography and
Capturing Human Emotion." She began by describing a picture
that she had seen in a book which was filled with photographs of
people. The picture really touched her and her description alone
.was very visual in itself.
House went on to say that through photos we not only capture
the moment, but freeze that moment in time, preserving a memory.
Photographs also document our culture, times and emotions.
To House, family photos are the best. In fact, she brought
some of her personal photos to share, as they should be.
House is the daughter of Pamela House of Old Town. She is a
Inember of the Beta Club, HOSA, NHS, Leadership, High-Q, and
'volunteers at the nursing home and EMT station. She likes to write
poetry, play keyboard, and of course photography.
Houses' favorite subject in school is Human Growth &
Development, along with Health Science. She plans to attend Santa
Fe Community College or the University of Florida where she will
major in nursing, second in dietetics and later Psychology. She
will also take photography classes, as it will always be a hobby for
her.
Nicholas "Nick" Cravey spoke about "My Life Directions."
Interestingly his topic was not far from Miss Houses,
Stinematography.
S Cravey began by taking us back to our youth, when we
dreamed of being something special and exciting when we "grew
up." Most of us don't become that fireman or ballerina, football
player, or movie star; Cravey however is well on his way to
fulfilling his childhood dream of cinematographer.
When he was very young his great uncle gave him a video
camera. In third grade he started making short films, later he
-would film his older brother's football games. Cravey was the
--founder of the DCHS film club and they are currently filming a
movie that will be presented later this year!
Like photographs, movie film preserves history, thoughts and
emotions and allows us to revisit the memories that are stored in
-our heads. We can only hope that Cravey will remember us "little
people" when he hits it big!
Cravey is the son of Matt and Maureen Cravey of Old Town.
He is currently the FFA Vice President, State Beta President and a
member of the High-Q, Honor Society, and Governor's Allstar.
Agriculture is Cravey's favorite subject because it teaches you
practical arts and how to work and farm land.
His future plans include going on to the University of Florida.
:While he hasn't chosen his major, it will most likely be drama or
cinematography.
Best of luck to you both!

Levy County

Quilt Museum
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thurs. Feb 1st at the Levy Co.
Quilt Museum. What a day we
had with many visitors. Ann
Hardee put in another quilt and
she will do it at home. The
watermelon quilt is ready to
turn in and it was days to go
through all the crafts that were
brought in.
Last Fri. Marie and I went
to Tampa and put in 33 quilts,
crafts and dolls, Tues. Cleo
and I went back to do some
judging. We hope to see many
neighbors as that makes for a
happy time.
Only two weeks until we
go on the bus trip and the seats
are filling up fast. Call 352-
493-2801. $20.00 for the trip,
and we have passes to get in
the fair. It will be a fun day
and we will be home by dark.
Do you know what a Butter
Nut is? It isn't a squash but a
nut that grows up north. Rose
Ford made a cake using the
nuts and it is so good. I wish
we could grow them down
here, but I guess it takes cold
weather and lots of woods.
Lunch was so good; we had
soybeans, cheese grits, fried
sweet potatoes, spaghetti, corn,
apple pie and so much more.

"CASH KWIK"
contd. from page IA
"We want to be your complete financial service center," said Cash Kwik Vice President of
Operations Cathee Matarazzo. "We basically do everything a bank or any other financial service
center does."
Located on the corner of US 19 and 271 Street in Cross City (next to Dixie Chevrolet), Cash
Kwik, the ninth location to open, offers a variety of financial services: money orders, bill paying,
check cashing and payday loans.
The most popular of the services is the payday loan.
"People have things that come up," Matarazzo said, explaining that when certain situations
ensue, whether it be car problems, or perhaps a senior citizen, who has yet to receive their monthly
check, needs a prescription refill, a payday loan can help.
"Payday loans are a short-term cash solution," she said.
To receive a payday loan, the recipient writes a personal check to Cash Kwik for the amount they
wish to receive. When they receive their paycheck they will pay the loan back, plus 10 percent of the
loaned amount and a $5 state charge. For example, if someone is loaned $300, they would pay back
the $300 plus an additional $30 (the 10 percent charge) and another $5 (the state charge) for a total
of $335.
Another popular and convenient service is bill paying. With over 200 participating vendors,
paying bills is a simple endeavor at Cash Kwik. Customers simply bring in their bill, pay the bill and
Cash Kwik takes care of the rest. Most bills will be received by the vendor within 24 to 72 hours.
The charge varies from $1.50 to $2.
For customers in need of a money order, Cash Kwik offers free money orders up to $1,500.
Money orders are a type of check intended to provide a safe alternative to sending cash by mail.
Money orders are also a more trusted method of payment since it is required that the funds be
prepaid for the amount shown on the money order.
As income tax return checks begin arriving in mailboxes, Cash Kwik offers affordable check
cashing. Income tax return checks can be cashed for a 3 percent fee.
Cash Kwik also cashes payroll checks. For payroll checks up to $999, there is a 1 percent fee
plus $2. For checks from $1,000 to $1,999, there is a 2 percent fee plus $2.
Matarazzo said the business, which has nearby locations in Perry and Chiefland, is happy to have
opened a new location in Cross City. She added, "Hopefully, we can contribute to your community."
Cash Kwik is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday through Saturday. It is
closed on Wednesday and Sunday. For additional information please call 352-498-5545.

8B DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS


Two Nurses Arrested For Withholding Medication


SS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2007


From Elderly Patients

Attorney General Bill McCollum
announced that two Suwannee County nurses
were arrested today on charges they failed to
administer required medication to residents of
the nursing facility where the women were
formerly employed. Ashley Dawn Fralick and
Melissa Elaine Bowen will be charged with
multiple counts of neglecting an elderly
person.
"Knowing that elderly patients were denied
essential medications is heartbreaking,"
McCollum said. "These victims rightly
deserved and expected care and attention, but
instead received neglect and abuse."
Fralick, 27, and Bowen, 30, were formerly
employed at the Good Samaritan Center
Nursing Facility located in Dowling Park. The
Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit began investigating the two women last
October after receiving an abuse report from
the Florida Department of Children and
Families. The management staff at Good
Samaritan had conducted counts of the
medications on the nurses' medication carts
before and after their shifts. The counts
revealed that more than 70 doses of medication
were unaccounted for, including medication
for pain, depression and high-blood pressure.
Several medications were not provided to
patients at all.

Enforcement

Of Mallard


Duck Rule
Did you know you need a
special permit when buying a
mallard duck in Florida?
Retail outlets, such as feed-
and-seed stores and flea
market vendors, also are
required to have permits to sell
these ducks, and by law, they
cannot sell mallards to anyone
who does not have the proper
permit.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) law enforcement
officers will be making routine
visits to sellers of ducks,
educating retailers on the rule
and making sure of
compliance.
"This is not a new law, but
we are making an effort to
make sure businesses selling
mallard ducks are aware of it
and its importance," said Lt.
Col. Michael Wiwi, FWC's
deputy director of law
enforcement.
The rule, which also makes
it unlawful to release captive-
reared mallards into the wild,
was passed by the FWC in
2004 to help protect the
existence of the state's native
mottled duck a unique
subspecies found only in
peninsular Florida.
The problem is, these pet
mallards do not migrate and
once released, become
established, year-round
residents of our state. When
they mate with wild mottled
ducks, it pushes Florida's
mottled duck population closer
to extinction.
"Domesticated or feral
mallards are crossbreeding
with our mottled duck,
producing hybrid offspring,"
FWC biologist and waterfowl
management program
coordinator Diane Eggeman
said. "This is a serious
concern and if not stopped, this
hybridization could result in
the extinction of Florida's
mottled ducks."
For more information on
this rule or to learn how you
can help protect Florida's
mottled duck, contact the FWC
waterfowl office at (850) 488-
5878, or visit
MyFWC.com/duck.

Investigators believe Fralick, of Live Oak,
and Bowen, of Madison, falsified medication
administration records so it appeared that all of
their patients received their prescribed
medications. According to Good Samaritan
staff, most of the victims lacked the cognitive
ability to know they were not given their
medications and then alert staff. The facility
immediately suspended the two women and
notified authorities.
Both women are currently being held at the
Suwannee County jail. Fralick was charged
with 16 counts of neglect of elderly persons, a
third-degree felony. If convicted on all counts,
she faces up to 80 years in prison and a fine of
$80,000. Bowen is charged with 10 counts of
