Commissioners Attend Fact

Finding Meeting On

Shired Island Water Quality
By Terri Langford
Earlier this month, a fact finding meeting was held concerning
the water quality at Shired Island. This issue has been a top priority
of the Dixie County Commission after last year's announcement
that the local "beach" had been listed as one of the top ten dirtiest
beaches in the nation. The Soil & Water Conservation District
(SWCD), along with the Florida Department of Health (FDOH),
Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Florida
Department of Agriculture (FDA) and the Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD) were on hand to bring their
expertise to the table. Also joining in the discussion were
representatives from the Steinhatchee Water Association and
Natural Resource Commission.

coastline that makes the area a popular spot for camping, fishing and
Paul Ridaught of the SWCD led the round table discussion and
opened by stating the goal of the meeting was to lay out a plan of
action to find out the source of the high bacteria levels at the
popular park.
Wesley Asbell of the Dixie County Health Department
(DCHD) noted his department began testing for the presence of
entei occi and fecal coliform bacteria in the waters of the bathing
area at Shired Island in 2000; with results showing high levels of
the bacteria during most of the year.
Enterococci bacteria can be contributed to fecal matter from
domestic animals, humans and birds. The DCHD test does not
break down the DNA from the bacteria, but only gives level
results. Those results are then posted at the entrance to the park as
a warning for potential swimmers. Humans can only contract the
bacteria by swallowing the tainted water or through entryways

Commission Highlights
Libetyv Counsel To Represent Dixie In ACLU Lawsuit Free Of Charge

By Briar Keathley
The Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners met
last Thursday, March 15, in a
regular meeting.
First on the agenda,
Pamela Swanson, founder and
president of the Dixie County
Humane Society spoke before
the board. The amount of
abandoned animals in Dixie
County is overwhelming,
Swanson said, and to provide
help to these animals she will
need the support of the
community and the
Swanson said her
intentions are the best of all
and that despite rumors she is
leaving her position as
president of the Dixie County
Humane Society, she is not.
Also, Swanson clarified
another rumor about hunting
dogs, stating that any hunting
dogs found,with tags will be
returned to their owner free of
Community Programs
Consultant Dick Edwards
provided the Board with
updates on the Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG) Housing
Revitalization program and the
SHIP program. The CDBG
program currently has projects
involving 13 applicants in
Dixie County, who are either
in need of home repairs of
hbme replacements.
, Edwards and County
Coordinator Arthur Bellot met
last week with Larry Gilbert
regarding making repairs to his
dwelling and are looking at the
option of replacing the home
with a handicapped equipped
SHIP home.
SThe SHIP program is
compiling a list of Emergency
Repairs applicants in an effort
to eliminate ..some minor
problems before they damage

the applicants' homes to the
point where they become
major housing rehabilitation
projects or replacement
projects. Commissioner
Marcus Hays said contractors
will provide a one-year
warranty on their work.
The Board voted
unanimously to let Liberty
Counsel represent the county
in the lawsuit filed by the
ACL. The ACLU filed the
lawsuit in an attempt to have
the Ten Commandments
monument moved from the
courthouse steps. County
Attorney Leenette McMillan
informed the Board that by
choosing Liberty Counsel to
represent the county in the
lawsuit, the county will not be
covered by its existing liability
company. The Board chose
Liberty Counsel because of the
firm's expertise in this type of
lawsuit. Liberty Counsel has
agreed to represent the county
free of charge.
The Board voted to
oppose House Bill 756, which
would require homeowners to
pay for periodic inspections of
onsite sewage treatment and
disposal systems.
m The Board voted to move
forward with the construction
process to repair Shired Island
Highway. The road, which is
in dire need of repair, recently
moved to the top of the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) list of road repair
projects. ,
County Coordinator
Arthur Bellot informed the
Board that the Florida House
of Representatives is proposing
to cut local government
budgets back to what they
were in 2001. However, the
problem is, Bellot said, that
things do not cost what they

The aerial shot (provided by the DOF) pictured top, shows the charred area of the Dixie Hunting Club where 88-acres burned in a brush fire
March 13. The inset picture shows one of the DOF'sfire fighters, putting out "hot spots" after the fire had been contained. The bottom left picture
shows how fire fighters dug break-lines around the fires'perimeter in order to stop the flow of flames; however, as you can see, this did not always
stop the fire that was aided by high winds. The picture on the bottom left is of one of many flare-ups that would burn themselves out by week end.

By Terri Langford
Last week the Division of Forestry (DOF) and local fire
fighters were called to a brush fire located in the Dixie Hunting
Club off CR 340 in the First District. Arson is suspected in the
blaze that consumed approximately 88 acres before being
According to Division of Forestry's Area Supervisor Larry
Grubbs, the call was made at approximately 7 p.m. with the fire
spotted in the hunt club, which is owned by Forest Systems. Fire
officials were concerned with the safety of several homes located
next to the club and moved quickly, cutting fire lines as they
mobilized to where the fire was concentrated.
The DOF called in crews from Dixie, Mayo, Taylor and
Madison Counties. One large tractor, three medium tractors, one
specialized "soft tractor" (used in muddy areas), three brush trucks
and a plane were used in the four-day assault on the fire. Local
volunteer fire fighters assisted in manpower, brush trucks and
water tankers.
Working through the night and into the early morning hours,
the fire was contained at 4 a.m. and "mop up" began by the DOF.

Throughout the next three days, crews traveled the fire scene,
looking for potential flare-ups.
Grubbs noted that the dry; windy days we have been
experiencing have made conditions prime for brush fires. Since
the 88-acre fire, crews have responded to four other brush fires.
He added that while there is no ban on burning, the DOF and local
fire authorities are urging folks to refrain from burning.
Kevin St. Laurent, forester for Forest Systems, stated in a
phone interview this past Tuesday, that after assessing the
damage, they will need to harvest approximately 20 acres of the
worst of the burnt pines. He stated that the young trees will only
be good enough to use for pulp, a lower valued product. The
remainder of the pines, although their growth stunted a bit, should
continue to grow for lumber harvest.
The Department of Agriculture has begun an investigation into
the fire and suspects arson to be the cause. The fire was started
just off the main grade going into the club. Officials are asking
persons with any knowledge of the fire to contact the Cross City
DOF station at 498-1380.

Sheriff Dewey Hatcher (left) and Superintendent of Schools Dennis
W. Bennett are proud to announce a joint effort in providing free ID
kits to every child within the Dixie school system.
This week schools throughout the district will be handing out
child identification kits to every child, thanks to the Dixie District
School Board and Dixie County Sheriff's Office. These kits will
make the difference in finding your child if he/she is missing.
According to the National Child Identification Program.
(NCIDP), more than 800,000 children are reported missing each
year. While an estimated 450,000 children run away, 300,000
children are abducted by a family member, and 50,000 are
abducted by strangers.
The NCIDP was formed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) and American Football Coaches Association in 1997 and has
distributed millions of kits at football games and school districts.
Their goal is to reach all children, ages 4 to 18, in the United

In recent years the Florida Sheriffs" Association and Florida
Association of District School Superintendents have joined the
Superintendent Dennis W. Bennett was approached by the
Florida Association of District School Superintendents about
issuing identification kits to Dixie students. In order to help with
the cost of such a project, Bennett approached Dixie's Sheriff
Dewey Hatcher about partnering with the School Board.
Sheriff Hatcher jumped at the chance to provide such a vital
tool that could make the difference in whether or not a missing
child is found.
The kits contain an inkless fingerprinting card and solution,
with step-by-step instructions on how to take a fingerprint. There ii
a section on the card for recording your child's physical
description and identifying marks, as well as a space for a current
photograph. While your child's fingerprints will never change,

Is Rudy right for the GOP?
With the Democrats virtually committed to nominating Hillary
Clinton as their presidential candidate (at least if she goes along
with Barack Obama for VP), the remaining question is who the
Republicans will pick. With the election still more than 19 months
away, the GOP field would have to be considered wide open;
however the guy with the early lead appears to be former New York
City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Having done a good job of cleaning up the Big Apple, Rudy
could have gotten his party's nomination for the US Senate seat
that Hillary won in 2000; but that was before he gained nation-
wide acclaim for his handling of the 9/11 terrorist attack. He also
had health and other personal issues, and would probably have lost,
and that would hardly have enhanced his status as an opponent for
Hillary in 2008. Intentionally or not, he did the right thing in terms
of his current status as a candidate.
However, Rudy Giuliani still has some issues that could cause
him serious problems with the GOP's conservative base. Being
"pro-choice," for example. On this matter, it has been argued that
his position on abortion doesn't really matter, because Roe v. Wade
is "settled law" anyway.
Wrong. Our next President will likely have an opportunity to
appoint at least one Supreme Court justice, and one more conserva-
tive on the court could overturn Roe, leaving the matter to the
:discretion of the states, where it was prior to 1973. But that's not
likely to happen if the appointment is made by a "pro-choice"
:president, and the red state voters know it.
: Pretty much the same thing could be said for Giuliani's liberal
position on gay marriage. There's no effort afoot to persecute
homosexuals, but a Supreme Court appointment could play a big
'role in preserving-or undermining--the traditional definition of
marriage, and the red state voters are on tc this as well.
S.Now, here's one ofRudy's positions that's not going to set well
:south and west of the Big Apple, even among voters who might not
have a problem the above issues: gun control. It's all right with
RRudy, who is a product of New York City, where oppressive gun
laws have been in effect for nearly a century.
The Supreme Court recently arrived at a ruling that the dracon-
ian gun control laws in Washington, DC, were unconstitutional
because they treated the Second Amendment like it didn't exist. To
which I will join with my fellow NRA members in saying, "It's
~bout time!"
But frankly, I'm surprised. The rights of gun owners haven't
gotten a boost like that at the federal level since-well, since the
Constitution was signed. Up until now, just about every judicial
ruling has put Amendment Two closer to the dustbin of history.
But one long overdue favorable ruling is no reason for gun owners
Jo become complacent. Another liberal judge or two on the high
tourt could turn things around in a hurry.
Suppose a liberal majority in Congress were to send a President
Guiliani a bill that would restrict the right of states to issue
concealed carry permits, or to recognize (as Florida does) the right
pf citizens to use deadly force for their own personal protection? A
pro-gun control candidate would be anathema to the GOP base, and
their turnout on election day would likely reflect that sentiment.
There are, of course, other important issues; but at this point it
seems that the Republicans would be well-advised to offer the
voters a better choice than one between Hillary and "Hillary-light."

Letter To The Editor
WhV Is the ACLU Suing Dixie County?
The ACLU is suing Dixie County over a Ten Commandments
display at the Dixic County Courthouse. However, the U.S.
Supreme Court already ruled in 2005 that such displays are
Constitutional. So why is the ACLU suing Dixie County? The
ACLU is suing Dixie County because they want your hard earned
The ACLU has learned to take advantage of a 1976 law
passed by Congress regarding First Amendment Civil Lawsuits.
The ACLU has discovered that they can sue a state, county or a
city in civil court and if they win, be reimbursed for their
supposed court costs in Taxpayer dollars. If the ACLU loses the
case they do not have to pay you anything. Instead, they just pick
up their marbles and go home.
This law was passed to allow individuals to have an
opportunity to defend their First Amendment Rights in Court,
even if they could not afford it. However, the ACLU has abused
this law to rake in millions and millions of Taxpayer dollars.
Here's how the seam works: the ACLU sues a state, county or
city in civil court over some Separation of Church and State
Issue. The ACLU makes sure that the case is heard by a liberal
activist Judge. When this Judge rules in favor of the ACLU they
immediately ask the Judge to award it huge amounts of Taxpayer
dollars for its "legal fees."
In San Diego a Judge awarded the ACLU $950,000 in a case
against the Boy Scouts, who the ACLU called a "religious
group." In Montgomery, Alabama the ACLU shared in a court
award of $549,000 in a case against Chief Justice Roy Moore and
his Ten Commandments display. In Virginia the court awarded
the ACLU $106,000 for winning a case in which they argued that
a library could not put a filter on their computers to keep children
from viewing pornography.
As you can see, this is a nice scam. Unfortunately, the people
of Dixie County just happen to be the next target for the ACLU's
The ACLU hopes that either Dixie County leaders decide to
give in to the ACLU's demands to remove the Ten
Commandments because of a fear of the potential legal costs, or
the ACLU wins the battle in the courtroom against Dixie County.
That allows the ACLU to rake in huge amounts of Taxpayer
dollars to cover their "legal fees."
If either of these things happens the ACLU wins and we the
people of Dixie County lose.
1 know all about this ACLU scam to raid Taxpayer Money to
fund its war against Religion in America because I have been
fighting it for years. My organization, Christians Reviving
America's Values, has stood toe to toe against the ACLU from
Kentucky to California to Alabama to Maryland and countless
other places. We also rallied tens of thousands of Americans who
asked Congress to put a stop to the ACLU raiding of Taxpayer
dollars. I think we could have won that battle if conservatives
had won the last election.
I have also fought on the front lines in this battle for our right
to display the Ten Commandments. In fact, I was involved in the
Kentucky battle from the very beginning, and that case went to
the Supreme Court in 2005. 1 am good friends with Judge Jimmie
Green, who was a primary defendant in the U.S. Supreme Court
case, and Matt Staver, the founder of Liberty Counsel and Judge
Green's attorney.
I worked hand in hand with Judge Green and his legal team all
during their 6-year battle for the display of the Ten
Commandments. In fact. I filed an Amicus Brief with the
Supreme Court at their request. Liberty Counsel later told me our

The ACLU says that they are all about protecting American

in standing water on the county right-of-way before entering the

Continued from page 1A
such as the eyes and open wounds. To date there has been no
known case of a swimmer becoming ill after swimming in coastal
waters at the "beach".
It was pointed out by the County Coordinator Arthur Bellot that
the area being called Shired Island Beach is not, nor has it ever
been officially designated as a "beach". The county has the area
listed as a county park.
For those familiar with the area, the Shired Island Park has the
largest portion of coastline suitable for swimming in the county,
and the most use. For that reason Asbell began testing at Shired
Island. Asbell was directed by the Florida Department of Health as
a part of the Healthy Beaches Program, to find an area to test.
There are presently 307 sample sites dotted throughout the state
that test for fecal coliform and enterococci. Since the testing
program began, the Big Bend area, of which Dixie County is a part
of, has shown high test results for the bacteria.
Mark DeHaven of the DEP stated that he has been testing for
fecal coliform in the area since there are a number of shellfish
farms and harvesting off the Dixie coast. He noted that since the
mid 90s the 43 testing sites in the Horseshoe Beach and Shired
Island areas have shown results of contamination as well.
DeHaven stated there was a pattern with stations showing their
highest counts at the Shired Creek boat ramp. Changes in levels of
the bacteria are noted during the different seasons, winter
(October-March) and summer (April-September). Weather also
plays a big part in results from the testing, such as during heavy
bouts of rainfall when the runoff from the creeks and marshes are
purged into the gulf.
In 1999-2000 the DEP tested the DNA of the bacteria and
found human fecal matter as one of the sources of contamination,
however, DeHaven noted that there were severe drought conditions
during that time, which made the tests' results questionable.
Shired Island is part of a Federal Wildlife Preserve and it is
believed by many that the birds nesting there are the main source
contributing to the production of the bacteria. The fact that the
island is surrounded by marsh, which acts as a sponge, and the fact
that Shired Island is in a inlet with the lack of wave action, are all
suspected as being major factors in this issue.
SWCD board member, Jodi Stephenson, stated he felt the man
made canals put in California Swamp have hurt the natural flow of
the filtration systems and creeks, which includes Shired Creek.
It is also being questioned as to whether or not the Town of
Horseshoe Beach's septic systems and as well as the septic system
at the park are causing any human contamination.
In an effort to find out the source, the Commissioners and Soil
& Water Conservation District authorized Asbell to perform two
tests that will break down the DNA of the bacteria found at Shired.
However, this test is just the first step; more testing will need to be
performed at a variety of locations, and over a period of time, in
order to have a true account of just what the source/sources are.
Results of the tests should be in by the end of next week.
Bob Vincent from the Florida Department of Health said, "This
test won't fix the problem, but will give us a snapshot to work
Commissioners stated they will need to look for grant monies
before continuing the testing program. Both SRWMD and the
DEP stated they would help in finding funding sources. The Soil
and Water Conservation District will head the project and will be
working closely with the county and various state agencies.
The county will continue to post weekly health advisories until
a more definitive answer to the problem is found.
The group agreed that protecting our coastal waters is
important, but our soil and fresh water are important as well. Dixie
County is part of a growing eco-tourism business and the
Commissioners have vowed to continue, as they have in the past,
to make sure that.our natural resources are not affected by the
fallout of growth.

Continued from page 1A
their looks will and the photo should be kept up-to-date; no longer
than a year old, preferably every six months.
Also included in the kit is a DNA collection envelope that
contains two sterile swabs for obtaining DNA from the inside of
your child's cheek.
Parents will keep the ID kit at home in case of an emergency. A
small card that contains your child's basic information and space
for small photo is included in the kit and should be laminated and
carried with you at all times.
"Both the School Board and Sheriffs Department have your
child's safety as top priority," Bennett stated.
"We hope that parents will take the time to fill out the kits,"
Bernett said.
Sheriff Hatcher stated, "It is important that parents fill out the
kits:while they have a clear head, not when their child becomes
missing and they can't think straight."
The 2,100 kits needed for the district cost less than a dollar
each and was split 50/50 by the School Board and Sheriff's
"A small price to pay for our children," stated Bennett.
If you should have any questions, or need help in filling out
your kits, you can contact the Dixie County Sheriff's Department
at 498-1220.

did in 2001. Bellot compared
the cost of items such as fuel,
employee health insurance,
and salaries between 2001 and
2007. Those costs have nearly
tripled in six years.
Commissioner Buddy
Lamb has been attending
meetings in Tallahassee over
the past few weeks, testifying
to what the impact of cutting
the budget would have on
small rural counties, Dixie
County in particular.
Richard Rubin, of
Synergy Solutions, a private
consulting firm specializing in
grant writing and grant
management, spoke to the
Board about possible grant
opportunities in Dixie County.
According to Rubin, there is
$66 million available through
the Florida Community Trust
Grant each year to be used for
small cities and counties to buy
open spaces to provide more
recreational opportunities.
Rubin told the Board that
the county may be able to
receive reimbursement from
the Florida Community Trust
Grant for the purchase of the
property in Jena slated to be
used as a parking facility for
boats and trailers for visitors
and locals using the Jena Boat
Ramp. Synergy Solutions
would charge the county
$17,000 to get the Jena
reimbursement--$ 10,000 to
prepare the grant and $7,000
upon receipt of the grant.
Commissioner Marcus Hays
said he felt it was a good
investment even if the county
did not get a full
Rubin also suggested that
county apply for a grant to
purchase Yellow Jacket
"The purpose of this grant
is for you to buy this property
before somebody comes in and
puts condos there," Rubin said.
The Board voted to obtain
the services of Synergy
Solutions pending approval
from the county attorney,
Leenette McMillan.
Commissioner Lamb
discussed with the Board his
concerns regarding the roll-off
site at 351A. Lamb said people
are stealing aluminum and
metal from the site and are
throwing trash along the road
leading to the site. Lamb asked
that the county look into
fencing the site and possibly
issuing trespass warnings to
those who are stealing the
aluminum and metal.

"The Word
Made Flesh"
Mark, Number, & Nam
of the Beast
Continued from last
week...We like to believe that all
Christian-minded people are
complete in the Lord Jesus Christ,
and that carnality will not bother
them anymore. Let us listen to the
Apostle Paul as he teaches the
Corinthian Church about their
carnal ways. Please notice that
Paul does call them brethren.
"And I, brethren, could not speak
unto you as unto spiritual, but as
unto carnal, even as unto babes in
Christ. I have fed you with milk,
and not with meat: for hitherto ye
were not able to bear it, neither yet
now are ye able. For ye Are Yet
Carnal: for whereas there is
among you envying, and strife,
and divisions, ARE YE NOT
CARNAL, and walk as men? For
while one saith, I am Paul; and
another, I am of Apollos; ARE YE
Corinthians3:l-4) The beast was
working at that time against the
truth of the scriptures just like he
is today, and he was working in
the people (earth). This man and
his number that carries the mark,
number, and name of the beast
covers the entire earth (people), all
the way from the Garden of Eden
until this day. Jesus gives an
example of what the carnal mind
can do to us, in the teaching
Nicodeums, a ruler of the Jews.
Jesus said, "verily, verily, I say
unto three, except a man be born
again, he cannot see the kingdom
of God." (St. John 3:3) here the
word "see" is definitely pointing
to the understanding of the person
Jesus told Nicodemus he had to
change if he looked into the
kingdom of God. Jesus called it
"BORN AGAIN" of water and of
the spirit. He went on to say,
"EXCEPT a man be born of water
and of the spirit, he cannot
ENTER into the kingdom of
God," (St. John 3:5) Notice! To be
born again means everything
becomes new; the old vanishes
away. The carnal part of the
creature dies and he begins to see
through the eyes of the spirit. The
new born creature of God
becomes subject to the spirit of
God and lets the Holy Ghost teach
him. "Marvel not that I said unto
thee. Ye must be born again. The
wind bloweth where it listeth, and
thou hearest the sound thereof, but
canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither is goeth: SO IS
THE SPIRIT." (St. John 3:7-8)
"For to be carnally minded is
death; but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace. Because the
carnal mind is enmity against
God; for it is not subject to the law
of God, neither indeed can be."
(Romans 8:6-7) Continued next
week...I come not in may name,
but in the name of Christ Jesus.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev. 21:3 "Heaven And Hell"
The angels then said. "We have been chosen from heaven to instruct
newcomers from the countries of the natural world since all who arrive
here from there, are in a foolish belief about heaven, yea. even about
salvation. Wherefore unless those follies are dissipated which is effected
by instruction, their rational which is above the memory, and grows wise
from the reception of celestial light, would be closed, and this being
closed, form being people they would become animals, with this sole
difference, that they would still be able to think form the external senses,
and speak from this though alone." "Since this office of instruction is
enjoined upon us, we will teach you what is meant in the Word by the
consummation of the age." And they said, 'The consummation of the
church is meant, which consummation is also called desolation and
devastation, and this is when there are no longer truths of faith and goods
of charity in any essence of their own and thus all the ways to heaven are
obstructed." They also said, "This consummation appears scarcely
anywhere in the world, because those things which are of faith are not
truths but falsities, and those things which are of charity are not goods but
only deeds of their own love, which, when they go forth in the breath of
the mouth, do not elevate themselves to heaven., but as.soon as they rise
up they are turned aside and fall down to the earth, just as does the water
of a bath when cast upon the shoulders, or as rotten fruit falls from trees in
the time of winter." In this consummation or end of the church, it will be
proclaimed from all pulpits, and the people will vociferate in all
sanctuaries, "He is the dwelling place of God! Here is the temple of God!
Here is the church of God! Here is salvation! Here is the light of the
Gospel" And they do not at all know that they are in mere darkness, and
that they dream the dream of the age. This is because they believe that
falsities are truths, and truths falsities, as also those evils are goods, and
goods evils. This night and this dream the Lord predicted in (Matthew
24:37-39; and in Luke 17:26 to the end). You shall be confirmed that the
consummation of the age is the end of the church, not only from reason,
but also from sight. Know then that the end of the church will not be at all
recognized on earth, though fully recognized in:the heavens. Heaven and
the church are like a single containing house. The church is the foundation
and substructure, and heaven is its superstructure and roof; and the
inhabitants are consociated like members of a family with domestics.
When therefore the church, by evils and falsities slips from under, that
house does not hold together except as to its walls and within
communication with the angels of heaven is intercepted, and the stairway,
by which there is ascent and descent, is taken away.
Continued next week... In the name of Christ Jesus.

The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its preparation of
a draft permit for the proposed project as
detailed in the application specified above,
for the reasons stated below.

The applicant, Town of Horseshoe Beach,
applied on Mary 17, 2006, to the
Department of Environmental Protection
for a permit to construct and operate a
membrane concentrate disposal system.
The concentrate is generated at the water
treatment plant that utilizes membrane
technology to produce drinking water. The
membrane concentrate will be transported
from the drinking water. The membrane
concentrate will be transported from the
drinking water facility via a 12,500 feet 6
inch C900 PVC pipeline to the disposal
site. The permitted capacity of concentrate
disposal system is 0.125 MGD monthly
average daily flow. The disposal site
consists of two rapid infiltration basins. A
tee will be placed on the end of the 6 inch
PVC pipe and evenly split the concentrate
into two 3 inch C900 PVC pipes that
discharge into each basin. The end of the
discharge pipe area in the middle of each
basin will be surrounded by a 4 feet
diameter area of rip-rap to control erosion
in the basins. The bottom area of each
basin is 21,800 square feet and the top
area of each basin is 26, 670 square feet.
The bottom elevation of the basins is 8.0
feet NGVD and the op elevation is 12.0
feet NGVD. The side slopes of the basins
are 4:1. The entire basin area, including
the basin bottom and berms, will be
sodded. The facility is located at latitude
29D 26' 13.45" N, longitude 83D 16' 54.53:
W on County Road 351, Horseshoe Beach,
FL 322348 in Dixie County.

The Department has permitting jurisdiction
under provisions of chapter 403, Florida
Statutes (F.S.) and applicable rules of the
Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). The
project is not exempt from permitting
procedures. The Department has
determined that a wastewater permit is
required for the proposed work.

Based on the application and the
supplemental information submitted, the
Department has reasonable assurance of
compliance with the applicable provisions
of Chapter 403 and 373, Florida Statutes
and Florida Administrative Code Title 62.

Any interested person may submit written
comments on the Department draft permit
or may submit a written request for a public
meeting to Ed Cordova, P.E., Northeast
District Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way,
Suite 200B, Jacksonville, FL 32256-7590
in accordance with Rule 62-620.555,
Florida Administrative Code. The
comments or request for a public meeting
within this time period shall constitute a
waiver of any right such person may have
to submit comments or request a public
meeting under Rule 62-620.555, Florida
Administrative Code.

FACILITY: Horseshoe Beach WTP
PERMITTEE: Town of Horseshoe Beach
PA File No.: FL0503703-001-IW5B

meeting be scheduled including a
statement of the nature of the issues
proposed to be raised at the

If a public meeting is scheduled the public
comment period is extended until the close
of the public meeting. However, the
Department may not always grant a
request for a public meeting. Therefore,
written comments should be submitted
within 30 days of publication of this notice
even if a public meeting is requested.

If a public meeting is held any person may
submit oral or written statements and data
at the public'meeting on the proposed
action of the Department. As a result of
significant public comment the Department
final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this draft permit.

How Can The Socia Security Disability SpecialstAt Integrated Famly Services Help You?

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

Club. She was curious to know if anyone had any information as to what kind of shell it is and how
it got out there. We all have speculated as to whether, at one time, there was a practice range
somewhere in Dixie County.
If you have any information...give us a call at 498-3312. Thanks, Jackie!

Horseshoe Beach Utilities Has Committed a Monitoring Violation of Florida Drinking Water Rules
What Happened?
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to knoo
what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We did not sample for the required contaminants and were therefore in violation of monitoring and reporting requirements. The table belo'
indicates the contaminants which we failed to sample and when we should have sampled for these contaminants. Because we did not take the required
samples, we did not know whether the contaminants were present in your drinking water, and we are unable to tell you whether your health was at risk
during that time.

What should do?

Contaminant ) Required Sampling Number of When All Samples Should When Samples Were

(a) please see the attached Drinking Water Contaminants list for all individual parameters in this category.
Some people who drink water containing the above listed contaminants could become seriously ill.

Any customers who are 9pncerned about their exposure to these contaminants can choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
The samples were pulled on 2/5/07 and the results were reported to The Department of Environmental Protection;
For more information, please contact Beverly Miller @ (352) 498-5468 or contact the Department of Environmental Protection, Potable Water
Section at (904) 807-3300.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for
example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies

Participants must complete the online portion of the class prior to
attending the range day.
Students younger than age 16 must be accompanied by an
adult. All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of
charge. Students need to bring a pen or pencil and paper. To pre-
register, students can visit the Web site or call the regional office.
"The FWC Hunter Safety Course is now available online and
on compact disc. Hunters can take a majority of the classroom
instruction without leaving home before taking part in a field day
that includes live-firing instruction on a shooting range to earn
certification," Robbins said.
"At the field day, students must complete a standard written
examination and are expected to demonstrate many skills such as
loading and unloading different types of firearms, safely crossing
fences and other activities that all safe, responsible hunters should
be able to complete," Robbins said.
Families with young children are encouraged to attend a
traditional course. Student interaction with the instructors may
assist the child in better understanding the course content, and the
instructor can answer student questions, which cannot be
accomplished with the online or CD versions.
Students who wish to complete the alternative course using the
CD-ROM method will need to contact the regional office at least
two weeks prior to the scheduled course field day. A CD-ROM
with instructions will be mailed at the student's request.

Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right
to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 01/03/07 show that our system
exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes Total
Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids (Five) (HAA5). The standards for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter (ug/L) and the
average level of TTHMs over the last year was 420 ug/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 ug/L, the average level of HAA5s over the last
year was 387 ug/L.

What should I do?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of .
childbearing age may wish to seek alternative water sources. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs can
choose alternative sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated by an appropriate home water
treatment device, until we correct the problem. Appropriate home water treatment devices are those certified by NSF for reducing
DBPs in drinking water.
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, -
kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over may years may have an increased risk of getting
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: The Town of Horseshoe is in the construction stages of a new Water Treatment
Plant, we are also flushing the Distribution lines on a weekly basis/
We anticipate resolving this issue within the next 12 months.
For more information, please contact: Beverly Miller @ (352) 498-5468 or C.M. Odom @ (352) 498-3967.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this
notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this
notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

Faith Baptist Church News
It was a gorgeous day today and a wonderful day for praising
the Lord for His blessings. Bro. Jackie brought a good message in
both services. In the morning service Heather Fore sang "He
Knows My Name" and our Faith Combo, made up of Buddy & Dot
Britton and Kacie Crenshaw did 3 instrumental numbers in the
evening service. Faith has so much talent it's really a blessing
from God.
We had visitors in both services today and our visitors are
always a special blessing to us. We pray that you were welcomed
and felt the love that abounds among our people. If you're looking
for a church home, we invite you to share ours and if you're just
passing through, please stop in and visit with us anytime.
Remember to pray for our Awana group on Wednesday night,
and for all the folks who have been out sick, the ones scheduled for
surgery, the ones having tests and especially for the lost in our
community. If you've been missing Sunday School, we pray that
you will return soon and invite a friend or neighbor to come with ,
you. God will bless you for it.
Until we meet again, we love you and will be praying for you. ,
Come out Wednesday night and get your mid-week fill-up. All of
our services start at 7:00 PM except Awanas and they start at 6:15
on Wednesday night. Bring your children or grandchildren and let
them learn about Jesus. See you next week.

Winter Burning in Florida
Weather in the last weeks has been perfect for a critical forest
management practice, prescribed burning. Colorful signs warn
motorists of "FOG SMOKE" or better yet, ""Forest
Management Controlled Burn" as thin wisps of smoke drift
across roads and through stands of pines.
During the months of January through March, the fire crew of
the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge will have
burned-off over 3400 acres of pinewoods. While keeping
firefighter-safety the first and foremost consideration, the refuge
brings in firefighters on training details to assist with those
Prescribed Burn Specialist, Vic Doig, "has got people."
Firefighters from across the country come to Florida where, out
of necessity, we do more prescribed burs than anywhere in the
nation. "Many of these out-of-state firefighters rotate through the
National Prescribed Fire Training Center located in Tallahassee.
Others are northern and western firefighters with snow on the
ground back home, so they opt to come to Florida to assist on
National Wildlife Refuges, parks, forests," says Doig.
Firefighter Anthony Dimaggio, a Floridian had to laughed,
"All day long, they were scared that a gator would jump out of
the brush and get them. Snakes bothered them, too."
A couple days Rest&Relaxation at beaches and the warm
weather are enjoyed by the trainees, but Florida's plentiful
wildlife is always on their minds. This month Dave Cantrell and
Ross Wise detailed-in from the other side of the continent,
Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge on the Oregon-
California border. Cantrell, while out on the fire line, brushed
against the lovely yellow rattlebox plant, swearing that a rattler
was about to strike. "It brought me to attention, real quick!"
Last month one of the trainees, a young Zuni Indian woman
.from New Mexico came from the desert where snakes have little
brush for cover and gators are the stuff of tall tales. Other
trainees assisting the team were from Alaska, Montana,
Wyoming, California and Arizona. They assisted the Lower
Suwannee fire crew with prescribed burning around the Levy
side. and learned that, in contrast to the northwest, in Florida -
green burns.
Prescribed burning in Florida pinewoods is not only important
for restoration of wildlife habitat and maintenance of these fire
dependant ecosystems, but it also serves to reduce fuel loading
and thereby lessens the chance and the severity of destructive
wildfires. This is particularly relevant as we are entering our dry
spring wildfire season. Some forecasters are predicting
conditions similar to 1998 when wildfires across the state
scorched over half a million acres and burned hundreds of
homes and businesses, and forced evacuations of over a hundred
thousand residents from threatened communities.
Firefighters detailed to our wanner climate learn about new
fuel models and wildlife. They also get the opportunity to
improve and restore habitats for native and migratory species of
the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge -- where wildlife

We will be returning to CITGO gas station
in Old Town this coming Saturday for our pet
adoptions from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. Come see if
we have the pet you might be looking for.
It is important to put a tag on your dog for
identification in case he or she gets lost. Dogs
can wander off and get miles from home,
especially in our area where there is so much
country and so much wooded area. The best
tags are those that include your personal
information such as your name, phone number
or address. This way if your dog is found, you
can be contacted directly. The other option is
the tag the veterinarian gives you when you
take your dog in for its rabies shot. This tag
has the name of the veterinarian clinic on it
with their phone number and a number that
identifies your dog at the veterinarian's office.
'. This would also give the information to get
your precious pet back to you.
Never leave a choke or training collar on
your dog when the collar is not being used.
These collars can get caught on something with
terrible consequences. A buckle collar is the
only kind that should be left on a dog.

Log Cabin Quilters met
Thurs. Mar 15"' at the Levy Co.
Quilt Museum. Two quilts were
put together and will be quilted at
home. One, a lavender Log Cabin
and a Card Tricks that was pieced
by a 17, year- old and she will
quilt it. It's great to see young
people learning a craft that they
will never forget. Memories of
seeing my mother quilt and I can
remember how it was done many
years ago.80 years ago thread was
not made as it is today, a pack of
needles was 10 cents and most
quilts was hand pieced, never on a
machine. I've always been
thankful mother taught me to quilt,
embroidery and make my clothes
even if they were out of feed
sacks. Just one more turn and the
Watermelon quilt will be done. As
soon as it's out, we will put
another one in for next years
Festival. Sarah, Elvena. Dorothy
and Evelyn faithfully quilt at least
two quilts while they are her,
Evelyn Ethridge came with them
and she also made our beautiful
sun Bonnets. WE had a call from
Roy LaLande who was so much
help when we were building. He
and his wife went back to Mich
and he is still volunteering where
he can. He said to tell everyone he
misses seeing everyone and
helping where ever he could.
Lunch was so good, chicken &

baked chicken, green beans 3

Springhouse Quilter's News

To celebrate Valentine, 30 Springhouse Day Quilters completed
a paper piece heart block. A raffle was held and Diane
Schweider won the blocks. She is shown holding her new Heart
Quilt she completed using the blocks. Faith Stanton, on the left,
is helping Diane display the quilt
It is unbelievable each month to see so many new quilts on
display by Springhouse Quilters. And last Tuesday, March 13,
during the monthly meeting there was no shortage of newly
completed quilts. Diane Schweider won the heart block raffle in
February and immediately went to work assembling the quilt. In
just one month, she had the blocks all pieced together. What a
beautiful site to see the quilt, beautiful in traditional red, all put
together and ready to be quilted. Congratulations to Diane on
winning the blocks and assembling the blocks into a quilt so
%:Some of.the other quilts on display were Miriam Otera with
hef completed community quilt, new-member Barbara Mills
showing her staff flags, Sandra Crowhurst with a raggy quilt,
Mickey Carter showing a bright accordion Seminole piece, and a
beautiful Turning 20 quilt with appliquCd hearts in beautiful
shades of blue and yellow. So much to see of what has been
completed in just one short month. Hopefully many of these
quilts will be entered in the October quilt show.
Stephanie Metts, owner of he Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop,
presented a demonstrations on Japanese quilting. It is so different
from our traditional quilting but very beautiful. Each member was
gyen a small sample kit to complete in the Sashiko, Japanese,
style quilting.
: The monthly meeting was well attended, 40 members were
present. Some of our northern friends will soon be leaving. We
will miss them over the summer but most certainly look forward
to their return in the fall.
.:We know they will return with many completed quilted
projects. The workshop this month will be on March 27 with Jan
Lifzinger leading the group in making a thread organizer.
;For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Jan
Lltzinger 463-3971 or Lois Scott, 463-2207.
: Lois Scott, publicity.


I would like to thank Mr. Norman Eastman of Ocean
Pond and Mr. Scott Howard of Cross City Cars & Parts
for purchasing my swine at the 2007 Livestock Fair. I m
blessed to know that there are people and businesses
in our community that really care for the youth of Dixie
County. Also, would you please support the people &
businesses that support the youth of Dixie County.

117 NE Hwy. 351 Cross City, FL

Town of Cross City Has Committed a Monitoring Violation of Florida Drinking Water Rules
What Happened?
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right
to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for total coliform bacteria in our drinking water system. We took 8 samples to test for the presence of
coliform bacteria during the months) of November. A total number of 2 samples showed the presence of total coliform bacteria.
Systems that test positive in more than 1 sample period (or 5% of samples for a system taking more than 40 samples per period) are in
violation of the maximum Contaminant Level rule.

What should do?
You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.

People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPA's Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791

What does this mean?
This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. Coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves.
Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be
present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems.
Usually, coliforms are a sign that there could be a problem with the system's treatment or distribution system (pipes). Whenever we detect
coliform bacteria in any sample, we do follow-up testing to see if other bacteria of greater concern, such as fecal coliform or E. coli, are present.

What was done?
We flushed the Water System & pulled repeat samples, the repeat samples were absent for coliform Bacteria.
For more information, please contact: Mike Cassidy @ (352) 498-3306 or Ferrell Spurlin @ (352) 498-5488.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for
example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies
by hand or mail.

Local Weather Brought To You By
Dixie County Clerk of Court

Cross City Water Treatment Plant Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards

What happened?
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a
right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 7/12/06 show that our
system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes
both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (Five) (HAA5). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms
per liter (ug/L) and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 117 ug/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 ug/L, the
average level of HAA5s over the last year was 150 ug/L.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems
with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of MCL over many years may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: The Cross City Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers &
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection to resolve this issue.
We anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12 months.

For more information, please contact Mike Cassidy at (352) 498-3306 or Ferrell 'Cricket' Spurlin at (352) 498-5488

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this
notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing ihoies, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this
notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

2007 Suwannee River


& Livestock Fair Highlights
Continued on page 9B

The 2007 Suwannee River Youth and Livestock Fair ended last Wednesday alter a week of long
hours and hard work, and of course, plenty of lfn for the Tri-County Area's youth.
Students from Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy Counties represented their counties, 4-H chapters and
FFA chapters as they competed in various events throughout the week. These events, including
showmanship shows, livestock shows and judging events, allowed students the opportunity to
display their skills, knowledge, as well as their well-bred and managed livestock, before judges and
the community. Most of these students had worked all year long preparing for the Fair, and their
hard work and dedication was apparent as they made quite an impression on judges and spectators.
The Fair began Saturday, March 3, with the Horse Show, Cloverbud Show and Heifer Show. The
all-day Horse Show provided nonstop entertainment as 4-HI and FFA members showed off their
equestrian skills. By mid-day the arena was filled with Cloverbuds and their prized bunnies. While
this was a learning experience for the young 4-H-ers, it provided plenty of Kodak moments for
parents. The evening Heifer Show proved to be one of the largest in the Fair's history with all three
counties actively participating.
On Thursday, March 8, several students participated in the Poultry Judging event. Students were
required to judge eggs, live chickens, and chicken parts and carcasses. In this event, students acted as
if they.were professional poultry judges, scoring points as they used their knowledge of poultry
The next evening, March 9, the Rabbit Show was held, during which a variety of rabbit breeds
were judged. Students listened attentively as their rabbits were critiqued, learning valuable lessons
for next year's Fair.
: The Steer Showmanship Show, held on Saturday, March 10, allowed students to show off their
ability to handle and show their steer-a valuable skill sought by cattlemen. These students did a
great job!
- A first for the Fair, the Dairy Goat Milking and Costume Contest was a huge hit on Sunday,
March 11, as families spent the afternoon site seeing and enjoying these new events.
SOn Monday, the arena was filled with spectators as the Swine Show took place. Students showed
qff their fine looking swine with hopes of taking home the Grand Champion trophy. This year, the
Qixie Jr. FFA took home the bacon with the prestigious award. The prize-winning pig was shown by
Ty Ottinger. The Chapter would like to extend its thanks to the Lambert family for the raising of the
gig and giving Ty training in handling swine. Later in the day, the Dairy Goat and Dairy Cattle
Shows brought spectators back to the arena for a look at the best goats and dairy cows in the area.
That evening, home economic entrants displayed their sewing skills at the Fashion Review.
Tuesday was a long day for fairgoers as the Feeder and Fat Steer Shows took place. The
competition was tough among the students as they contended for the Grand Champion trophy.
However, it was Orrie Branch of Dixie, and Asheton Sanchez of Gilchrist, who would take home the
coveted Grand Champion trophies in their respective divisions.
Wednesday, the big sale day, was also a long, but exciting day. This year, the receipts totaled.
$771,560. Students received exceptionally fair prices for their livestock, especially those selling
Grand Champion and Grand Champion Reserve winning livestock. The Grand Champion Fat Steer
brought $15.50/lb., the Grand Champion Reserve Fat Steer brought S8.50/lb., The Grand Champion
Feeder Steer brought $8/lb., the Grand Champion Reserve brought $6.50/ lb., the Grand Champion
Swine brought $12/ lb., and the Grand Champion Reserve Swine brought $7/ lb.

2007 Suwannee River


& Livestock Fair Highlights

Letter To
The Editor
Black History Month &
Southern Heritage
On February 24th, 2007 a
luncheon was held at "First
District" Community House in
Dixie County to discuss
Southern Heritage and its
relation to Black History
The luncheon, sponsored by
Sons of Confederate Veterans,
Dixie Defenders, Camp 2086,
Cross City, Florida, featured
Mr. H.K. Edgerton and Terry
Lee Edgerton who are
descendants of Black Veterans
of the Confederate Army.
Mr. H.K. Edgerton stressed
the invaluable contributions
made by Southern Black
People during the Great War of
1861 to 1865, whether serving
as uniformed front line
Military Troops, Military
Support Troops, civilian
workers supporting the
Military, running farms and
businesses left unsupervised
when the owners joined the
Military, or supporting and
protecting all df the women
and children, when their men
had gone off to war.
H.K. is a champion of the
truth about the War Between
the States, its causes and its
consequences. Our Southern
heritage, he says, binds
together black and white
whether Southern born or
Southern by choice.
Approximately 110 people
from several S.C.V. camps and
the black community left the
meeting with a greater
understanding of, and
appreciation for the real truth
underlying this period of our
nation's history. Several
participants remarked that they
had no idea how much
misinformation they had been
given and would examine
more closely what they read or
are told, from now on.
There is a need for more
communication between the
white and black communities.
This has been a good start. The
S.C.V. will continue to reach
out. Let us plant the seed of
truth here in Dixie County so
those "leaders" black and
white, can no longer use lies
and propaganda to disrupt our
efforts to find common ground.
They have used us for their
own political and financial
gain. Let it end here and now
so we can be "one" community
