Senate Special Election


Set For June
By Briar Keathley
SGov. Charlie Crist last
week appointed State Senator
Nincy Argenziano to the
Florida Public Service
Commission, requiring a
special election to be held in
Jufie to fill her seat for Florida
Senate District 3. A special
primary election is scheduled
for June 5, assuming there will
be qualified candidates from
both major political parties. A
general election is scheduled
for June 26.
Resigning from her position
as a state senator to accept the
PSC post, Argenziano, a
Dunnellon Republican, stated
in a press release: "I consider
the responsibility of a Public
Service Commission member
to be one of the highest in the
State. The people of Florida
deserve compassionate


representation when it comes to
utility oversight and regulation.
I look forward to using my
experience to provide the
state's consumers a strong
voice on the Commission."
Argenziano was elected to
the Senate in 2002 and
subsequently reelected in 2004.
According to a press release,
her legislative career focused
on the protection of the elderly
and other vulnerable citizens,
resource protection, and full
participation of citizens in the
government.
"We are pleased to have the
opportunity to work with
Commissioner Argenziano in
her new capacity," said PSC
Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
"Senator Argenziano's
dedication and enthusiasm for

Burn Ban In Effect
By Briar Keathley
Due to the severe wildfire threat, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson announced
Tuesday he has instructed the Division of Forestry to stop the
burning of all yard waste by homeowners.
S-'This reduction in the burning of yard waste should emphasize
to everyone the seriousness of the drought conditions in our state,"
Bronson said. "Until we are well into a regular pattern of afternoon
thundershowers, we cannot risk allowing a small yard fire to
escape and cause a disaster."
Although there have been no recent large-scale fires in Dixie
County, the potential threat is there, according to Dixie County
Division Chief of Fire Operations Darian Brown.
"The winds and humidity are perfect right now for fires,"
Brown said. "Any little spark could create a fire you can't control."
He explained that our resources are slim right now because our
local forestry units have been deployed elsewhere throughout the
state to help control wildfires. If a wildfire were to start in our
county, controlling it would be difficult.
Unless prohibited by the local city or county, homeowners
living in single or two-story family dwellings are normally allowed
to burn yard waste on the premises in a non-combustible container
without any specific authorization from the Division of Forestry.

Dixie's Relay For Life Raises More Than

$17,800 To Help American Cancer Society


i-,.
lob.
.... ... .




Cancer survivors walk the "Survivors' Lap" during the Dixie County Relay For Life. It was an emotional
time, reminding participants of the importance of their contribution.


16 Burglaries Solved
The Dixie County Sheriffs Office recently solved sixteen
burglaries that had been committed in various locations
throughout Dixie County, before the burglaries had even been
reported by the owners. Arrested was Charles Alton Smith, 21,
of Old Town, Kendall W. Hall, 20, of Old Town, and Shawn
Alexander Wright, 16, of Old Town.
The Sheriffs Office received a call in reference to an audible
alarm sounding at 279 NE 354 Avenue in Old Town. When
deputies arrived they found an open door to the home.
Deputies were led to a home in the area and interviewed
several suspects. The interviews yielded three individuals that
had committed the burglary. During the interviews all of the
individuals admitted to taking part in the burglaries. It was also
learned that Smith and Wright had burglarized other homes that
were either abandoned or part-time residences throughout Dixie
County. The Sheriffs Office recovered over sixteen hundred
dollars worth of stolen items from the home where Smith, Hall
and Wright lived. See "BURGLARIES" page 5


Two

Arrested

On Theft

Charges
The Dixie County Sheriff's
Office Investigations Unit
arrested and charged Patrick
Reaves, 20, of Old Town, with
Grand Theft and Dealing in
Stolen Property. Also arrested
was Kevin Reaves, 20, of Old
Town. He was charged with
Burglary, two counts of Grand
Theft, and Dealing in Stolen
Property.
The investigation has been
ongoing since April 28, when
William Hall of Old Town
reported that someone came
onto his property and stole
numerous items. The
investigation led to both
Patrick and Kevin Reaves.
During interviews both of the
individuals admitted to taking
the property.


Together, they walked, ran,
laughed and cried. Together,
they raised more than $17,800.
During the Dixie County
Relay For Life, which was
held last Friday and Saturday
at Old Town Elementary
School, participants raised
money to help the American
Cancer Society in its mission
to save lives, help those who
have been touched by cancer
and empower individuals to
fight back:
'That's a really good
amount for this sized
community," said American
Cancer Society Community
Representative Jamie Lynn
Bellamy of the money that
Dixie County raised.
Of the nine teams who
participated in the event,
Anderson Elementary School
came out on top by raising
$4,186.81.
See "RELAY"page 18

of Old Town, Tuesday, May 8, 2007 on charges of DUI

I'll explain this one more time....
It seems that entertainer Sheryl Crow has advised us that one
Standard square (or at the most, three) of bathroom stationery (she
did not specify single or two-ply) should be enough for a visit to that
facility, and should be voluntarily rationed accordingly so as to cut
down on the use of that commodity and thus save the planet.

It's been scarcely a month since I had to explain how something
as simple as going to the bathroom should not require innovative
alternative methods as recommended by the environmentalist left.
But before reiterating my March 29 dissertation on pottiology
(There, I've just contributed another word to the English language!)
allow me to make one additional observation, which was
inadvertently omitted from my earlier dissertation.
Hoping not to offend those with more delicate sensibilities, let
me point out that anyone who has served in the United States
Military should be able to explain how one square per visit can
suffice when the commodity becomes scarce. I will not go into detail
Here, this being a family publication; however suffice it to say that it
does not take a celebrity to come up with ways to conserve toilet
Paper in the event of a shortage or an emergency.

Let me also offer my opinion that, at the present time and for the
Foreseeable future, no shortage, let alone an emergency, exists.
Of course, entertainment (and political) celebrities (is there even
a difference?) don't need a real emergency to promote an issue.
Consider Al Gore and his global warming project. Al excuses his
kilowatt-guzzling Nashville mansion and his fleet of SUV's by
Purchasing "carbon credits." I don't know who sells those, but I'd
Like to see a list of people who buy them, because I need to unload
Sthe shares I bought on the Suwannee River bridge.

I figure Sheryl Crow might be of the same mind-set as Big Al. In
other words, chintzing on bathroom stationery is what the common
folk need to be doing, the anointed having a special dispensation to
exceed.
To further explain myself, let me point out that, while the
military method is well-suited as a short-term solution to a scarcity
of toilet paper, the only long-term solution will be to substitute
another commodity.
Conservationist that I am, I remain interested in alternative fuels
for our plethora of automobiles. One of these is ethanol. As a matter
of fact, my family produced a significant quantity of it during
Prohibition, though I don't recall any mention of them putting it in
the gas tanks of their Model T's.
I also wonder if simply drilling for oil in the Arctic wilderness,
the Gulf waters off the Florida coast and other viable sources closer
to home and therefore less vulnerable to the whims of Islamic
terrorists might be an even better idea; but then, what do I know?
Again, my solution is corn cobs, which is the one thing that
entices me to lean toward ethanol as an alternative fuel. Producing
ethanol requires corn (at least the good stuff does, according to
cousin Pie Shivers and Uncle Booger). This means that there would
suddenly be an over-abundance of corn cobs, which could be used
as a substitute for toilet paper....
Excuse me, corn cobs are not a substitute for toilet paper, toilet
paper is a substitutefor corn cobs! Like, which do you suppose was
in use first, say before the Industrial Revolution?' So get real,
environmentalists; give up this wasteful practice of cutting down
trees so you can... well, you get the idea.
Take my word for it, corn cobs would work better than the one
square a visit method. And I will personally start utilizing them, just
as soon as Sheryl Crow does.

Haven Hospice Volunteers

Dedicated Service
Haven Hospice recognized
outstanding volunteers in the Chiefland area
during a luncheon held Tuesday, April 17. The

Mahalo," enjoyed food inspired by Hawaiian
cuisine as they received praise for their time
and services dedicated to Haven Hospice.
Susie Sebring, a volunteer with
Haven Hospice for the past five years,
received the Administrative Volunteer Service
Award. This award is given to administrative
volunteers who assist staff with clerical work

handles 60 percent of the filing. Thanks to
Sebring's help, the department runs much more
smoothly.
Gret'n Daughadav received the
Nursing Facilities Volunteer Service Award
in recognition of the countless hours she
spends with the Patients at Haven Hospice.
Daughaday travels to Cross City nursing home
and the Haven Hospice Tri-Counties Care
Center in Chiefland, where she assists the staff

caring presence bring a smile and laugh to
everyone she meets. She goes above and
beyond her call, especially during holidays, to
lend a helping hand when many workers are
home with family. Her devotion to patients
and family members exemplify the overall
mission of Haven Hospice.
Barbara and Bill Beinlich, a couple
dedicated to the well being of Haven Hospice
patients, both received the Home Care
Volunteer Service Award this year. This
award is designed to recognize people who
serve patients in their homes, helping with
many aspects of daily life. The Beinlich's serve
all of Haven's home care patients in the Inglis/
Yankeetown area, sometimes driving many
miles to reach a patient's home. They run
errands and, most importantly, spend time with
the patients.

FIRST ROUND OF FCAT READING AND MATH
SCORES PUTS DIXIE IN THE TOP NINE
The first round of FCAT 0Lw, i ,
Reading and Math Scores for .....
2007 have been reported to the g 1.
district and the news is exciting. \.
Out third grade FCAT scores,
*which are the first round to be
scored and returned to the
district put Dixie in the top nine r
in the state. This means that we I
are above the state average and .
have shown improvement in Be
both reading and math.
Congratulations to both Anderson Elementary School and Old
Town Elementary School as they continue to move up the scale
toward academic excellence.
The Department of Education in Tallahassee is concerned,
because many other districts across the state declined in showing
improvement in 3rd grade reading.
When we analyze the 3rd grade data, it reveals good news in
the two areas where the state is looking. First, they are looking for
proficiency or above proficient in FCAT Levels 3-5. We increased
in this area from 77% to 79%. Second, they look at the number of
students who are most at risk. These are our level one students. In
this area, we reduced the number who had not passed last year
from 56% in math and 46% in reading.
Again, congratulations 3rd grade and all that had a part in
'helping our students make these tremendous gains in their reading
and math scores.

Under the Senate plan, the'
state of Florida would receive
roughly $7.69 million a year
for the next five years to
support rural counties and
schools. If the provisions are
not adopted by Congress, the
state would receive the old
'formula amount of only $3.67
millionn a year a difference of
$4t'2 million.
.NACo Executive Director
-"Larry E. Naake and county
bOfficials in the affected
-communities say that the
increased funding is critical to
'the rural school districts and
'counties.
,, "NACo calls on Congress to
'fulfill its 30-year-old promise
'to. compensate counties for tax-
exempt federal land by fully
funding PILT and to renew its
1.00-year old compact with
S:forest counties by
reauthorizing the Secure Rural
:Schools Act," Naake said.
The Senate language will
provide five years of stability
,.for these schools and
communities. It's past time for
Congress to act."

DCHS Brain Bowl Champs

Seeking Donations For

National Competition Trip
The Dixie County High School Brain Bowl Champions are in
the process of collecting donations to help fund their trip to the
National Championship in Chicago, IL, May 25-27. Coaches
George Anderson and Diana Locke are asking the community to
help support the four young scholars in their quest to be named the
best!
The DCHS Brain Bowl team led by Will Gove, Shian Knuth,
Katie Thornton and Erik Cundiff, all sophomores, recently came
off a 2nd place win in an 18-team tournament; losing to the all
senior team from Marianna. Later in the competition the DCHS
team would beat the top seeded Holmes County in the semi-finals,
giving them a spot in the national competition.
Questions during competition range from the subject matter in
the three "R's" (Reading, Writing, Math) to science, the arts and
music, to philosophy and psychology.
These young men and women have already put Dixie County
on the map as having some of the brightest students in the state,
please help them take that honor to the next level by giving your
donation today.
The entry fee has already graciously been paid for by Donna
Merring, local educator. Airfare will cost $225 per person and $50
a day for food has been estimated per person as well. Hotel
accommodations will cost $95 a night for three nights with three
rooms being needed.
For the next three weeks, team members will be holding a
number of fundraisers. If you would be interested in giving a
donation, please contact Mr. Anderson at 352-317-6251 or Mrs.
Locke at 498-6431.

Good Food For Thought1 .
Sometimes, what we care about most gets all
used up and goes away never to return. So,
while we have it, it's best we love it, and care
for it, and fix it when it's broken. And, heal it
when it's sick.
This is true -for marriage, and old cars, and
children with bad report cards. Dogs and cats
with bad hips, and aging parents, and grand-
parents. We keep them because they are worth
it, because we are worth it. Some things we
keep. Like a best friend that moved away or a
classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that make life
important, like people we know who are spe-
cial. And so, we keep them close! Good friends
are like stars. You don't always see them, but
you know they are always there.
Keep them close. Are you a keeper? Think in
terms of what kind of person you want to be.
Let that guide your choices. (.27 2CG'CS.

Coffee At The Gas Station

Every morning they gather
like crows on abandoned picnics:
Old men at the gas station
on highway 19, Old Town,
all lined up along a concrete
low-wall "telling lies"
as my grandpa always says.
It seems as if they appear on the cusp
of dawn, delighted to be awake
at an hour that would leave
bushy-tailed squirrels astounded.
They sit together with steaming
hot coffee and fellows older
than Plato describing their lives
in the past and updating them
with taller and taller tales.
Small town Florida presented
in a bright sunny postcard
cannot capture the sunny
and silver-haired men populating
gas stations across the sunshine state.

"INVESTIGATION"
According to Sheriff Dewey H. Hatcher, the Dixie County
Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit teamed up with other members of
the Dixie County Sheriff's Office and performed a Marijuana
Cultivation Investigation.
The investigation revealed five locations in different parts of
the county that were being used to grow marijuana. The Sheriff's
Office members went to the locations and found marijuana in
various stages of growth. More than 170 plants were pulled to be
destroyed. They also found items that are commonly used in the
cultivation of marijuana. The Sheriff's Office is continuing the
investigation into the locations that had been used as cultivation
sites.
Sheriff Hatcher stated, "The Sheriff's Office will continue to
investigate the sale, use and delivery of illegal substances and
narcotics."
If you have any information concerning possible locations that
are being used to manufacture illegal drugs, you are asked to
contact the Dixie County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit at 498-
1230.

"SOUTHLAND" contd. from page 1
This year's festival will be the 12th annual and is scheduled for
Saturday May 26, Memorial Day weekend, and runs from 9:00
AM to 4:00 PM. All-day entertainment will be provided by ten acts
on two stages performing a total of thirteen shows. The headliner
for RBD '07 is the widely known C&W group, Confederate
Railroad.
The group Southland offers a very high-powered delivery of
traditional Southern Gospel music. This multi-award-winning
vocal group is guaranteed to put on an entertainingly inspirational
show, as they do each and every time they take the stage. It will be
real easy for those not familiar with the group to hear why they
repeatedly win awards and have been featured on XM Satellite
Radio nationwide. They have released three complete albums to
date and are planning pre-production stages for their fourth.
Southland is indeed a family affair, with all members being
"kin". The group started in 1999. Keith Bradley (Baritone vocal),
Stant Bradley (Lead vocal), Sharon Bradley (Soprano vocal) and
Bert Buzbee (Bass vocal) comprise this quartet. Thurlene Bradley
(who is Keith's wife, Stant's mother, and Bert's sister) handles
bookings and arrangements and is also the group's publicist. She
currently writes a very nice column for the monthly publication
The Gospel Post, a Gospel Music newspaper. Bert's wife Barbara
is also a big part of the operation in that she handles merchandising
at their shows and is the group's photographer.
The early Buzbee family split their time between Dixie County
and the Wimauma area of Hillsborough County. It was there that
eastern Kentucky native Keith Bradley met Thurlene. After
marriage, they permanently settled in Dixie and have been here
ever since. Born in Gainesville, Stant grew up in Dixie County.
Sharon's parents were from this area, but she was born in England
as an overseas military child although you wouldn't know it from
her "Dixie-fied" accent.
Southland will be performing two shows at this year's Red
Belly Day festival. They will kick off the day's festivities on the
Rachel Stage immediately following the 9:00 AM opening
ceremonies. For those unable to get to the show early, Southland
can also be seen on the north stage starting around 12:45 for their
second show.

"BURGLARIES" contd. from page 1
Smith was charged with sixteen counts of Burglary, sixteen
counts of Grand Theft and three counts of Criminal Trespassing.
Hall was charged with three counts of Burglary and two counts.
of Grand Theft. Wright was charged with thirteen counts of
Burglary, fourteen counts of Grand Theft and three counts of
Criminal Trespassing.
The investigation is continuing and Sheriff Hatcher asked
that if you have any information concerning this case or other
Burglaries and Thefts to please contact the Investigations Unit of
the Dixie County Sheriff's Office at 498-1231 extension 234 or
241.


"DOGS"
contd. from page 1
ongoing since April 16, when
Candace Sanchez reported that
her dog had been stolen out of
the back of her truck, and on
April 22, Jay Calvert reported
that his dog had been stolen
from his home. During the
investigation that led to Perry,
it was learned that the dogs
were being traded and sold.


"ELECTION" contd. from page 1
consumer advocacy and Florida's future will serve to further
highlight the Commission's commitment to ensuring Floridians
receive their electric, natural gas, telephone, water and wastewater
services in a safe, affordable and reliable manner."
Three Republicans have filed papers with the Florida
Department of State's Division of Elections indicating their
intention to run for Argenziano's seat. State Reps. Charlie Deamn
R-Inverness, and Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, along with Richard
Corcoran of Hernando, have filed, however, they have not
qualified yet because candidate qualifying is not until May 14.
As of Tuesday, only one Democratic candidate expressed
interest to run in the Senate race. According to records in the
Florida Division of Elections office, Suzan Franks, of Citrus
County, filed papers April 30.
Because both Dean and Baxley resigned from their House seats
to run in the Senate race, a special election will be held to fill those
vacancies as well. Dixie County registered voters will not vote in
that election because no part of Dixie County is included in either
district. All Dixie County voters will, however, be allowed to vote
in the special senate election because District 3 encompasses the
entire county. Registration books closed Monday for the primary
election and will close May 29 for the general election.

Both elections will require the same amount of manpower, time
and money to carry out as other normal state elections.
County Coordinator Arthur Bellot informed County
Commissioners at last week's Commission meeting that the special
election was not budgeted for and, unfortunately, is an expense the
county must incur.
According to officials from the Supervisor of Elections office,
an average election can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000.
That cost includes salaries of poll workers, consultants and
elections department staff, the use of Accu-Vote Optical Scan and
touch-screen voting machines, ballot printing, translation services,
advertising, and absentee voter material.
The county is currently looking at funding options to fund the
special election.
The following dates have been established for election
activities for the special election:
May 14: Candidate qualifying, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.; May 28-June
2: Early voting for the special primary election; June 5: Special
primary election (all polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.); June
18-June 23: Early voting for special general election; June 26:
special general election (all polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m.).
More information on voting locations and candidates will be
printed in the Advocate as it becomes available.


The dogs have been recovered
and returned to their owners.
The investigation is
continuing at this time and
additional charges and arrests
are expected. Should you have
any information concerning
this case you are asked to
contact the Investigations Unit
of the Dixie County Sheriff's
Office at 498-1231 extension
234 or 241.

Lydia Baptist Church News
What a marvelous God we serve! The Lord blessed us
abundantly this past Sunday with refreshing, cooling rain, and
everyday with the beauty of His creation all around us.
We are thrilled to congratulate Cody Fowler on his graduation
from Dixie County High School! We are all immensely proud of
this fine young Christian.
Ms. Elaine Hines' lesson in children's church was equally
poignant for us adults; "Don't be so self absorbed that you only see
a small part of the picture, try to see the big picture, and think of
today as a learning experience to help you see the blessings in
tomorrow".
Pastor Wayne Allen's message from I Corinthians 11:23 taught
us that Jesus should be the center of our lives every day, not just
when we are in church. Jesus willingly paid the ultimate price for
us, and yet we continue our ungodly ways. His heart was broken
as he couldn't understand why ALL humanity wouldn't desire
salvation. We, at Lydia, are so blessed to have such a dedicated
and caring pastor as brother Wayne Allen and his wife, Janice.
We invite everyone to attend our Sunday school classes. You
will enjoy great fellowship while learning richly from the word.
All Sunday morning classes begin at 9:45 a.m., and Sunday
evening Bible Study at 6:00 p.m. Worship services are 11:00 a.m.
and 7:00 p.m.
Our Vacation Bible School, with an exciting cowboy theme,
begins June 24s.
Remember, at Lydia everybody is somebody, and Christ is
everything. Pastor Wayne Allen 498-3708.

The Word Made Flesh

will find a scarlet colored BEAST

The scarlet color of this Beast i,

My Best Friend
You grew so very sickly
We all hoped for the best
It wasn't very good news
When we got the results of the test
You needed an operation
The prognosis wasn't good
The doctors came and told us
That they had done all they could
They gave you just a few weeks to live
And oh how I cried
I didn't want to lose my mother
I felt so empty inside
The cancer was very aggressive
I heard the doctor say
Chemo's not an option
We just all need to pray
You fought a hard battle
Though short it would be
You went to see Jesus
You were finally free
I find comfort in knowing
You will never hurt again
You were not only my dear mother
You were mybest friend

Behold The Tabernacle
Heaven & Hell Rev 21.:3
Continued from last week. It is also, from order, that between
the heaven and the hells, there is an equilibrium, in which man is
in the world and in which he is led, if by the Lord, to heaven, if by
himself, to hell; for it is a law of order, that man shall act what he
acts from freedom according to reason. Since so many myriads of
myriads of men, since the creation of the world, have poured in
both to heaven and hell, and are perpetually pouring in like
streams, and every individual is of a dissimilar genius and love, it
would have been impossible for them to have been consociated
together into one unless God was one, who is life itself, which life
is wisdom itself and love itself, and thence order itself. Spirits are
affections, which are of love, and thus, also, thought; spirits of
heaven affections of the love of good, and spirits, of hell affections
of the love of evil: the good affections, which are angels, dwell on
an orb which is called heaven, and the evil affections, which are
spirits of hell, dwell at a depth beneath them: the orb is one, but
divided as into expanses, one below another; the expanses are six;
in the highest dwell the angels of the third heaven, and beneath
them the angels of the second heaven, and beneath these angels of
the first; below these latter dwell the spirits of the first hell,
beneath them the spirits of the second hell, and beneath these the
spirits of the third; all things are so arranged in order, that the evil
affections, which are spirits of hell are held in bonds by the good
affections, which are angels of heaven; the spirits of the lowest hell
by the angels of the highest heaven, the spirits of the middle hell,
by the angels of the middle heaven and the spirits of the first hell
by angels of the first heaven; from such opposition the affections
are held in equilibrium, as in the scale of a balance. Such heavens
and such hells are innumerable, distinguished into companies and
societies according to the genera and species of all affections, and
these latter are in order and in connection according to their
affinities nearer and more remote: as it is in the heavens, so in the
hells. This order and this connection of affections is known to the
Lord alone, and the orderly arrangement of so many various
affections, answering to the number of men who have been from
the first creation, and who shall be hereafter, is of infinite wisdom,
and at the same time of infinite power. That the divine power is
infinite, or that it is omnipotent, is very manifest from this
circumstance in the other world, that neither the angels of heaven
nor the devils of hell have the least portion of power from
themselves: if they had the least portion heaven would fall to
pieces, hell would become a chaos, and every man would perish
with them. Love you. Continued next week.

Local Student

To Attend

Princeton This

Summer
Unlike most of her .
classmates who will be

making plans to enter highfi
school, one local student,
Hillary Thornton, will be V .
hitting the books and tr .
adjusting to dorm life at
Princeton University. a
Hillary will spend several a g e
weeks at the prestigious Ivy
League University in New
Jersey involved in the I
Freshman Scholars Program S
conducted by the Junior

there she will be taking
advanced placement courses
in US Government & Politics,

as well as participating in
nightly debates and take field
Hillary Thornton
trips to Philadelphia and New York City to attend the Speakers Program where she will hear
members of the US Congress and the United Nations.
The non-partisan Junior Statesmen Foundation seeks to strengthen American democracy by
educating and preparing high school students for life-long involvement and responsible leadership in
a democratic society. Based on their academic standing and leadership potential, outstanding
students from around the country are invited to submit an essay to be considered for the programs
held at Georgetown, Princeton, Yale and Stanford. Hillary was particularly excited to be among the
250 chosen to attend Princeton because her grandfather graduated from and had been a teacher there.
Hillary is very grateful to Ms. Betty Nell Mills at Langston Insurance, Mr. Cookie Liles at
Carquest Auto Parts and Drs. Hank and Linda Stoddard at Shamrock Veterinary Clinic who are
helping to sponsor her efforts this summer. If you would also like to help Hillary, you can do so by

The Buddy Show
byBuddy Martin


Ridin' high with Calvin

in the


Kentucky


Derby
ITo be one of
America's epic events,
we probably know the
least about the horses
iii the Kentucky Derby
than participants in
anything all year on the
sporting calendar. We take a cram course, become instant experts
oh these magnificent animals and their diminutive pilots and then
lunch full tilt into the office pool or neighborhood drawing.
In every way possible, the Kentucky Derby is a
game of high risk. It takes a'near-miracle just to get a horse into
the race. To win it is a fairy tale comes true. Imagine the odds on a
horse taking all three Triple Crown races.
On rare occasion, a spectacular animal beats those
odds and maneuvers through the land mines of Triple Crownhood.
It's been 29 years since Affirmed became the llth. We never saw
it coming with Affirmed. We never even saw it coming with
Secretariat, the Babe Ruth of horse racing.
Funny thing about that first Saturday in May, 1973, is
that I was exulting about my best day of betting ever at Churchill
Downs, with more than. $700 in winnings quite a haul for a $10-
a-race bettor and didn't fully realize what I'd witnessed. I did
have sense to tuck away two winning tickets on Secretariat,
however, and have never cashed them.
We didn't know what heartache lay ahead for Barbaro.
And we're not exactly what we saw Saturday with
the victory by Street Sense, the 9-2 favorite trained by Carl
Nafzger and ridden by Calvin Borel, who brought his mount from
19th place to the winner's circle.
If you never knew the joy of winning a Kentucky
Derby, Borel showed us after his victory. He rose up in his irons,
thrust his whip into the sky as a joyous salute, slapped hands with
fellow jockeys and wore a smile wider than the 2 lengths that he
won by.
S Borel, never wanting the moment to end, took an
extended victory lap, lifting his jockey's helmet with both hands
as jf he were tipping it to the crowd, then pointing downward at
the'horse over and over as if saying "it was all him." Eyes filled
with tears, he reached down and kissed the mane of Street Sense.
We don't know if we saw the makings of the 12th
Triple Crown winner or not, but what we saw was the emotional
gratitude of a man who had ridden more than 4,000 horse races,
butmnever experienced anything close to this. That's why there is
nothing like the Kentucky Derby, even if we don't know much
about it until it is finally over.
Quick Jump Starts
1I Money Magazine is apparently set to name Gainesville, Fla.
as No. 1 among America's best places to live, adding yet more
credence to that braggadocio term "Titletown" which Gator folks
are throwing around ad nauseam these days.
2, The study by twos guy from Penn and Cornell made for an


interesting topic in academia, but the charge of racially bias calls
by NBA officials was refuted by virtually everybody in the
league.
3. Now that they've finally moved back the college 3-point
line, I,agree with Billy Donovan's suggestion that it's time to
widen the lane.
4. I realize they are standing on ceremony by banning alcohol in
their clubhouse following the DUI-induced death of pitcher Josh
Hancock, but remember that the St. Louis Cardinals are owned by
the Busch brewery.
5. If Michael Vick thought the NFL defensive linemen were
attackers, wait until he begins to feel the wrath of the animal
rights activists after him about the rumored connection with
breeding fighting dogs.
Short Stuff
This Redfish Cup thing is catching on, as evidenced by the
Sun's weeklong coverage of this year's premier fishing event and
the crowds at motels and restaurants in Charlotte County ... What
does a guy do after winning two national championships in 366
days? Why if you're Billy Donovan, you go to Ireland to play golf
with eight of your buddies ... Golden State's Baron Davis has
suddenly emerged as the freshest new face in the NBA Playoffs.
Numbers Please
Impressive stat: With the selection of linebacker Lawrence
Timmons at 15th overall, FSU has now had at least one first
rounder in 16 of the last 17 NFL Drafts.
The Atlantic Coast Conference brought in a record $148.9
million this year, a 35 percent increase, which vaulted the' 12-
school league ahead of the Big Ten, the SEC and the Big 12.
The 20 3-year-old colts in Saturday's Kentucky Derby were
racing for a $2,210,000 purse with winner Street Sense getting
$1,450,000.
This just in
We don't need a survey to tell us the image professional athletes
badly needs a makeover, which is why NFL Commissioner has
stepped up to hold organizations, coaches and players responsible
for bad behavior. It should have been a clue that the public is fed
up with the gang-banging when the owner of several casinos in
Las Vegas asked that the NBA All-Star Game not return. Terri
Lanni, owner-operator of most of the casinos on the strip, said the
crowd that followed the NBA "was bad for business." This time
they're hoping that what happened in Las Vegas does NOT stay in
Las Vegas. Wonder what that does for hopes of bringing an NBA
franchise to Glitter City?

Mel Tillis And Friends Hook Up To Host "Mel Tillis & Friends Fishing
Tournament" And Concert In Steinhatchee, Florida, On Memorial Day


Weekend Benefiting
Steinhatchee, FL. It all began
with legendary country music star
and Florida native Mel Tillis
reading a small ad in a fishing
magazine looking for a different
place to go fishing. And as a
result, the small fishing
community of Steinhatchee and
the Big Bend area of Florida may
never be the same. But one thing
for sure, many kids in need are
about to receive help because of a
major event Mel Tillis & Friends
are putting together in
Steinhatchee.
Mel Tillis, a country music
legend and the king of country
humor, has agreed to host the
Steinhatchee River Development
Corporation fishing tournament,
building a Memorial Day
Weekend event at the Gulfstream
Marina in Steinhatchee that will
surely rival anything ever held in
this region of Florida.
"Somebody said we ought
have a fishing' tournament,"
remembers Mel, "then somebody
else said we oughta have a
concert, next thing we know we're
goin' gangbusters building the
first annual Memorial Day
Weekend event to raise money for
The Shriners Hospital for Children
and The Scottish Foundation of
Florida to benefit those charities
for kids.
And what an event it's going to
be. "Mel has invited other major
country stars along with sports
figures and actors," says Jeffery
Patterson, coordinator of the
event. "We do not know yet just
who may show up."
"Mel does his best to fish out of
the Gulfstream Marina several
times a year, and when this idea
started to get wings, the entire
community started to get excited
about hosting the event" continued
Patterson.
Festivities begin on Saturday,
May 26 at Gulfstream Marina. A
poker tournament and a silent
auction will lead up to the
Captain's Meeting for the
inaugural Mel Tillis & Friends
Fishing Tournament. Just after the
Captain's meeting, Mel Tillis and
the Statesiders and a few "special
guests" hit the stage for some
good old-fashioned red, white and
blue country music.

While the anglers are out trying to

be a $15,000 tournament cash
purse, the live entertainment will
start at noon and carry through
weigh-in. The awards ceremony
and the live auction, for one-of-a-
kind items like a Martin guitar
autographed by Mel Tillis, a
Telecaster guitar autographed by
the lead guitarist, Jeff Cook, of the
super-group ALABAMA will
follow the weigh-in. There will be
other items such as signed posters
by John Travolta and other
memorabilia auctioned on stage.
The silent auction that began on
Saturday will also conclude with
the winners being announced at
the awards ceremony.
Ted Ensminger, publisher of the
Florida Fish & Game Finder
Magazine is the guest emcee and
tournament director for the
combined inshore-offshore fishing
tournament. "Ted brings with him
over 30 years of tournament
experience with over 500 events to
his credit. We're fortunate to have
him and his staff as part of our
event," states Patterson.
Event organizers are predicting


over 400 anglers will participate in
the tournament with as many as
5000 people participating in the
entire weekend. "It's sure to be a
fantastic event," states Patterson.
"Mel has invited about forty of his
celebrity friends to come. There is
no telling who may be here. With
Mel asking his friends to come
together to support this worthy
cause, you won't want to miss this
event" says Patterson. "We have
confirmations now on Jeff Cook
from ALABAMA, Little Jimmy
Dickens, Trick Pony, Bobby Lord,
Wade Boggs and Roland Martin.
The celebrities have until the 15th
to get in their confirmation. We
have heard of others coming, but I
am not saying they will be here
until I get their confirmations"
says Patterson.
"It's gonna be a great weekend,
loads of fun, but I don't want
anybody to forget the real reason
we're doing all of this, and that, of
course, is to raise money to help
kids who need our help," reminds
Tillis. "All of the proceeds from
this event will go to my Brothers
at The Shriners Hospital for
Children and The Scottish Rite
Foundation of Florida. Now I
gotta ask you. what better reason

Special-Opportunity Hunts Offer

Quality Experiences

If you're looking for a quality hunting experience, look no
further. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering hunters unique fall-season hunts for deer, wild
hogs and released quail on the state's best public hunting lands.
These special-opportunity hunts offer hunters vast areas,
abundant game, low hunting pressure and excellent chances to
bag quality game on select wildlife management areas (WMAs)
throughout Florida.

Special-opportunity deer and wild hog hunts take place on Fort
Drum (Indian River County), Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter County),
Triple N Ranch (Osceola County) and Green Swamp West Unit
(Pasco County) WMAs. The released-quail hunts take place on
Blackwater WMA Carr Unit in Santa Rosa County.
All deer hunts allow you to take only mature bucks with one
antler having at least four points. Does also may be taken if you
apply for and draw an antlerless deer permit. During hog hunts,
there are no size or bag limits. For released-quail hunts, you must
bring and release your own pen-raised quail.
If you find these special-opportunity hunts appealing, you may
apply for one or more of these fall hunts beginning May 8. The
FWC will continue accepting applications for special-opportunity
hunts through June 13. Worksheets are available from any FWC
regional office or MyFWC.com/hunting. To apply for these hunt
permits, take a worksheet to any license agent or tax collector's
office or submit an application at MyFWC.com.
Historically, demand for these hunts is greater than the number
of available slots, so a random drawing is conducted to select
hunters. Individuals can improve their chances of being selected
by submitting as many nonrefundable $5 applications as they
would like. The cost of the hunts for selected applicants ranges
from $50 to $175.
Visit MyFWC.com/hunting for more information on how to
apply for special-opportunity hunt permits.

National Trails Day Bike Ride -

June 9, 2007
The Nature Coast State Trail
All rides start at 9:00 AM (or thereabouts) from the Old Train
Depot, 419 North Main Street in Trenton. Trenton is about 25
miles West of Gainesville on SR 26.
This is a fun, open, very low-key ride on the smoothly paved
Nature Coast State Trail for all levels of bicyclists, including
children. Family ride groups are encouraged.
Ride options range from a few miles for beginning riders and
families with small children, up to 64 miles for experienced
cyclists who choose to ride the entire trail.
The old railroad bridge where the Trail crosses the Suwannee
River near Old Town is a favorite option (about 12 miles from
Trenton). The original machinery which made the bridge pivot to
allow steamboats to pass can still be seen from the bank of the
river below the trail. The rural landscape along the trail offers a
peaceful atmosphere complete with live oaks and wildflowers.
Maps of the trail will be provided at the starting point in
Trenton. There will be refreshments at the Depot and there are
convenience stores along the trail. There is a Dairy Queen under
the live oaks in Cross City. The ride is not otherwise supported.
For information, contact Kirk.Marhefka@dep.state.fl.us or
352-535-5181.
Helmets are required for children under 16 and recommended
for everyone.

Legionnaires News
Elections for the new year have begun. It is that time when legionnaires begin electing officers
for the upcoming year. Generally officers will serve from early July until the same time next year.
Local posts fill positions and install their newly elected officers followed by the district. State or
Department officers are elected and installed at the annual convention in July.
Congratulations are in order for the newly elected officers of Post 149, Newberry. They are as
follows: Commander, Charles Fidler; I"s Vice Commander, Wright Terry; 2nd Vice Commander
Peter Sabo; Finance Officer and Adjutant, Charles Jarvis; Chaplin, Johnny Brown; Historian, Dennis
Nickerson; and, Judge Advocate, Ause Brown. Elections for Auxiliary Unit 91, Trenton, will be
held at their monthly meeting at 6:30 pm on May 10th. Please come out and support your Auxiliary
unit. They are a vital part of the American Legion family. Elections for Post 91, Trenton, will be
held at the monthly meeting at 7pm on May 17th. More participation is needed for the full
complement of officers for this post. As has been said before, without member support
vital legion programs cannot be supported. Come out and help move this long-standing post forward
by your active participation.
Prior to the Post 91 meeting on May 17th there will be a donation spaghetti dinner starting at
5:30 pm. Even if you are not a legionnaire you are welcome to come out and support the legion by
your donation and receive a pretty good meal.
The Gilchrist County Memorial Day service will be held in front of the courthouse in Trenton on
Monday, May 28th at 11:00 am. Immediately following the service there will be a BBQ luncheon
provided by the Gilchrist Historical Society at the community center. I encourage everyone to attend
and honor those who fought and died in defense of our freedom.
The Bell High School JROTC unit will once again volunteer their time to play an important role
in honor of our veterans. On May 5th we attended a memorial service for the late 4th District Vice
Commander, Wayne Gravely. While memorial services are usually pretty emotional events it is also
a time to remember the good times as well. This service was no exception in that regard. While the
tears flowed freely for the loss of our fellow legionnaire so did the fond memories of our very good
friend. Wayne was family to us and he did so very much to touch our lives. Wayne will be sorely
missed by all of his legion family as well as his close family and friends. The Legion Aires News
was, is and always will be Wayne's article. I certainly do not possess the insights and experience that
he had but will nevertheless attempt to continue this article until a more suitable writer will take
over. As an accredited Service Officer for the American Legion and the Florida Department of
Veterans Affairs, I am fortunate to be in a state that is considered one of the leading organizations in
the nation for veterans' representation. Each County Service Officer in the state of Florida is required
to pass certification by the state and must be re-certified annually. So, this week I am in Cocoa
Beach attending our annual recertification training. 1 look forward to bringing back more news and
updated material to share with our veterans.
Remember our military service personnel who are currently serving in over 102 foreign lands in
defense of our freedoms. Those families left at home while their loved ones are serving need our
support. If you know of anyone whose loved one is away and their family needs assistance, get in
touch with a local American Legion post. This is a national effort by the legion to make sure that our
personnel and families are being cared for. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY Major Stroupe, Service
Officer. Chicken Dinner

U.S. Chamber honors Congressman Boyd for supporting
business issues
WASHINGTON, D.C.-Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida) received the "Spirit of Enterprise" award from the United
States Chamber of Commerce for his strong support of a pro-
economic growth legislative agenda in the second session of the
109th Congress.
"It is such an honor to receive this award from the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce," said Congressman Boyd. "The federal
government can play a meaningful role in providing economic
opportunity for our businesses. I am proud to work with the U.S.
Chamber and the local chambers in North Florida to promote
more economic growth in our communities."
The Chamber's "Spirit of Enterprise" award is given annually
to members of Congress based on rankings it gives.for key
business votes. The votes counted by the Chamber in 2006
included the passage of tax relief for small businesses and
, legislation to enhance maritime and cargo security at our ports.
"Our communities are stronger because of the work and
dedication of the local chambers and their membership," stated
Boyd. "I will continue to work in Congress to support our
chambers and the issues that are important for the economic
development of North Florida."
Chamber-designated "key votes" are recorded floor votes on
issues established as priorities by the Chamber's board of
directors and on which the Chamber communicates its position
prior to the vote. Members of Congress who support the
Chamber's position on at least 70 percent of key votes receive the
"Spirit of Enterprise" award.

bacterium are less susceptible to becoming ill,
at-risk individuals are more likely to become
extremely ill or potentially die. People in these
high-risk groups are also at risk of illness if
they have wounds, cuts or scratches and wade
in estuarine areas or seawater where the
bacteria might be present.
"It's important to realize that most cases of
Vibrio vulnificus can. be avoided by taking the
proper precautions," DOH Secretary Ana M.
Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said. "Individuals
in high risk groups should avoid consuming raw
oysters, or can enjoy cooked oysters or oysters
that have been post-harvest treated."
Thoroughly cooking oysters, either by
frying, stewing or roasting, eliminates harmful
bacteria and viruses in the meat. Consuming
raw oysters that have undergone a post-harvest
treatment process to eliminate the bacteria can
also reduce the risk of illness.


Initial symptoms of Vibrio vulnificus
infection can include mild nausea, vomiting or
diarrhea, followed by distinctive swollen skin
lesions, and septicemia (blood poisoning). If
someone experiences these symptoms after
consuming raw oysters, they should contact
their personal physician immediately for
diagnosis and to receive antibiotic treatment.

In 2006, DOH investigated 24 cases of
Vibrio vulnificus, two of which resulted in
death. Eight of the cases were attributed to
wound exposure; four of the cases were
attributed to the consumption of raw oysters,
with two deaths; one was associated with crab
consumption and the method of exposure of the
remaining eleven cases was undetermined.
This year, there have been 4 confirmed cases
of Vibrio vulnificus related to oyster
consumption in Florida, and two of those have
died.

For more information, please visit DOH's
Web site at www.doh.state.fl.us and choose
"Food and Waterborne Disease" from the
subject list.

Bronson Urges Residents To Plan For

Pets And Animals Prior To A Disaster
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is encouraging people to plan ahead for their
animals in the event of an evacuation. Numerous communities
have had to evacuate and Bronson says citizens should not wait
until the order to evacuate comes to think about how they are
going to deal with pets and other animals.
Bronson's Division of Animal Industry web site
www.doacs.state.fl.us/ai (click on "Emergency Management")
provides extensive information for owners of large and small
animals who may be in harm's way. The web site has information
on disaster preparedness for animals, emergency animal
sheltering, emergency housing for horses, a list of hotels that
accept pets and a link to web sites that list pet-friendly motels.
"Wildfires erupt very quickly and often without warning and
people who wait until too late to prepare may end up leaving their
animals unattended or refuse to heed evacuation orders," Bronson
said. "With just a little planning, people can ensure their animals,
large and small do not become victims of these fires. People need
to understand that many emergency shelters are not able to accept
pets so advance planning is imperative."
Pets and Small Animal Safety
-- Keep ID tags and vaccinations up to date.
-- When evacuating, bring proper identification and health
papers with you.
-- Prepare a pet survival kit, including food for two weeks, a
manual can opener, medications, a pet carrier, and bedding. If
evacuated, properly secure your animals.
-- If you plan to board a pet, make written arrangements in
advance.
.-- Contact hotels and motels along your evacuation route to
check policies on accepting pets and keep the list handy.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, M/


Horses and Livestock
-- Keep vaccinations and other health requirements up to date.
-- If possible, make arrangements in advance for evacuation of
horses. Know where you can take your horses for shelter along
your evacuation route.
-- Make sure your horse trailer is "ready to go" or other
transport arrangements are prepared well in advance.
-- Carry your vaccination record and health papers with you as
well as handling equipment.
Have a point of destination before departure and be sure to
evacuate as soon as possible to avoid traffic delays.
"It is better for everyone if animal owners know where they can
take their pets before they need to evacuate," Bronson said. "We
have many animals still separated from their owners as a result of
disasters and we need to take steps to prevent this from
happening."

Old Town Chicks, Red Hatters
On The Road


The Old Town Chicks Red Hatters were on the road again
April 24th 2007. This time, we traveled.to Gainesville's Olive
Garden. We were all too early for our 1:00 p.m. reservation, so of
course, we had to go shopping. First we cleaned out all of the sale
items at Michael's and the Factory Card Outlet then onto places
unknown. Finally back to the Olive Garden where we were living
it up and had the waiters going on with us when up walked the
Steinhatchee Red Hatters who had just had a meal earlier and were
getting ready to leave.
Girls, you looked gorgeous that day, as always! Check us out
next month and see what we can get into. Princess Point and
Shooter Elaine Howell.


Log Cabin
Quilter's News
' Log Cabin 9uilter's met
Thursday May 3' at the Levy
Co. Museum. All that came
were tired and happy after our
Church Luncheon on Tuesday.
We had 82 visitors plus the
members who helped in all
areas. It was a day where we
heard what our churches are
doing and how they are busy
helping with food, making
calls, visiting the nursing
homes, as well as taking care
of the sick. We are proud to
live in an area that helps
neighbors, friends and loved
ones. Here, we know our
neighbors. I have a son in
Clearwater that doesn't even
know who lives next door.
God has a way to put people
where he wants them, and I am
so thankful that I am home, for
I was born about a half mile
from the museum. Greg and
six boys were out Wednesday
and what a great job they do
for us. They planted onions
awhile back and now we are
able to use them. The
tomatoes are making, and we
do enjoy raising some food.
We know we don't have to
worry about what we eat out
here.
SJim Seagrove came up and
picked up his king-sized quilt
that will go to Alaska. Cleo
and Eleanora done a great job
of getting it put together and
quilted.
Lunch was great, even after
having so much on Tuesday.
We did enjoy fried squash,
Beans, Greens, Kraut,
Brownies and much more.

RRMS Participates In Tornado Drill

riL~


Tornado Drill Participants
SRuth Rains Middle School participated in a tornado drill on
Fiiday, April 27th. This drill is one of many which are practiced
throughout the school year in order to be better prepared for
unseen circumstances.
SDuring this drill Mrs. Baumer informed the school that we
were going to participate in a tornado drill. Students were
instructed to go to the most interior wall of the room and assume a
fetal position with arms covering the head. Officer Lamar, Mr.
Storey, and Mrs. Baumer quickly checked each room confirming
that all students were in the most secure area of the room and in the
correct position. These drills are part of the School Safety and
Security Best Practices set by the Department of Homeland
Security. Although these drills interrupt the regular schedule of
the school day, they are beneficial in our endeavor to maintain a
safe environment for our students.

Students teach their parents a poem during the workshop.

The Dixie County School District held a "Families Building
Better Readers" workshop last Tuesday at Old Town Elementary.
The workshop was a collaborative effort between the Florida
Department of Education's Just Read! initiative and the Volunteer
Florida Foundation. The purpose of the workshop was to teach
parents the importance of working with their children at home to
improve their reading skills.
During the workshop, parents learned how to help their
children become better readers through 10 simple reading
activities. They also learned how to boost their child's confidence
as a reader, and gained resources for helping their child practice
reading at home.
At the end of the workshop, parents were given reading
materials to take home to help them practice the strategies they
learned from the workshop with their children.

COUNTY HEALTH
DEPARTMENT
Commissioner Hays stated that
Representative Boyd's rural health
council needs partnership to get a
free standing 24 hour clinic and he
will ask for the same request this
year. Taylor County has changed
their CEO and they no longer need
or want to do this. Sable Boiling
with the Dixie County Health
Department came before the
Board at the request of
Commissioner Hays, who is the
representative on the Rural
Healthcare Council. The Health
Care Counsel meets next
Wednesday in Tallahassee.
Sixteen counties vote and rank the
request with the top two or three
get funding. Mrs. Boiling stated
that the Board would serve as a
fiscal agent for a grant of
$650,000, if Dixie County is
awarded the grant she has applied
for. The Health Department will
work carefully with the Board as
they did when the building was
built. There was 12,500 square
feet of space built in 1991. She
stated that the administration is in
the leased double wide trailers and
this would expand exam rooms.

from 3 to six child, 8 adult, and
one treatment WIC area to include
6 total at $230 per square foot.
Staffing includes Dr. Diane
Walker who starts back March 1st,
John Knight, two dentists from the

other physicians. Mrs. Boiling
asked for the Board's
consideration. Commissioner


Valentine stated that the Board
appreciates everything that Mrs. h
Boiling does. Commissioner Hays /
thanked her for the short notice to S
appear. Mr. Ruth asked if a S
private doctor wanted to open a 24 tt
hour clinic could the Board be i
involved in this or not?
Commissioner Hays stated that the t
doctor could open a 24 hour clinic A
as "Urgent Care" only, not a free C
standing Emergency Room. Mr. C
Alexander stated that most times
these areas are "Band-Aid" F
stations only; however this would C
help with transport. ha
Commissioner Hays stated that hi


Dr. Hauser's office was still
available. Commissioner Hun
stated that something similar
would be coming to the Floridi
Crown Building. Commission
Hays thanked Mrs. Boiling.
DICK EDWARDS

QUESTIONS FROM THE
AUDIENCE:A concerned citizen
asked if the county can deed the
small piece of property where the
Ten Commandments stands to a
private individual in order to avoid
the litigation. Attorney McMillan
stated that county property cannot
be sold or given away for that
purpose.
Another concerned citizen
inquired about pigs near his house
that run loose. Commissioner
Valentine stated that the man had
dropped the issue and Mr. Jenkins

A concerned citizen wanted an
update on the tri-county hospital
and Commissioner Lamb
responded. He hopes to get
something soon; now they are at
the table and all of the attorneys
are trying to find a resolution. The
Government is involved but there
is not a set date. This could go on
for a long time. There was one e-
mail that confirmed this. There
are too many senior citizens that
need this hospital and there are
neighbors that have moved due to



he lack of a hospital.
Commissioner Lamb stated that if
something noticeable changes then
ie will contact the Dixie County
Advocate.

,their projects through the Board of
S County Commissioners.

S need to improve the sidewalks to
S the schools. Coordinator Bellot
S said this money is not for repair
but new construction.
S Commissioner Hays then asked
S about building a sidewalk to the
Family Dollar Store.

Commissioner Hunt's district, the
greenway trail needs a parking
area for overflow parking. We
tried to get DEP involved he
Stated. Coordinator Bellot said the
rFlorida Communities Trust open
grant cycle deadline is 5:00 pm on
SMay 9, 2007. We acquired the Joe
Anderson Park property in 01-02
with Preservation money. This is
a labor intensive grant.
Commissioner Valentine asked if
this would reimburse the Board
for a parking lot. Coordinator
Bellot responded that most likely
this grant would not, however,
they look for endangered species
property and recreational property.
Commissioner Hays asked about
the Yellow Jacket region.
Commissioner Lamb thinks the
Yellow Jacket property would be a
good start. Commissioner Hunt
asked about boat ramp parking at
the Joe Anderson Sr. Park.
Coordinator Bellot stated that it
may be looked at in the future but
not now because the owner is
looking at condos. Commissioner
Hays stated that locals have used
Yellow Jacket for years.
Commissioner Valentine agreed.
Commissioner Hays made the
motion to find a consultant and
Commissioner Hunt seconded.
Board approved. Coordinator
Bellot stated that he had tried
contacting the consultant that we
had used before but he had no luck
with that. He also stated that there
were several others on the list that
are good to use as consultants.
Coordinator Bellot asked if the
Board had any preferences as to
who and the Board stated that they
wanted the cheapest, fastest
person with the best track record.
Coordinator Bellot reported that
Florida Boating Improvement
Grant was open. Boat ramps are
mainly another grant application.
Commissioner Lamb stated that he
had one ramp left in his district
that needed to be repaired which
was on Highway 340 Coordinator
Bellot stated that the County may
be able to use recurring money to
fix the problem at Yellow Jacket
Ramp. Coordinator Bellot asked
the Board to use Dennis Davis
with Darabi & Associates.
Coordinator Bellot stated that he
had received a letter from Ken
Monoghan wanting to meet with
the Board of County
Commissioners individually. He
has a one hour presentation
regarding personal liability.
Coordinator Bellot asked if the
Board was interested.
Commissioner Lamb suggested
waiting until the new
Commissioners finished their
ethics classes next month which
would help with questions that
they might have. Commissioner
Valentine asked that Coordinator
Bellot set this up for around April
2007.
Coordinator Bellot stated that he
had filed a new application for
Federal funding on Shired Island
Highway for 1.8 million dollars
with the Federal DOT. The Board
discussed the quotes that were
received on the Suwannee and Old
Town projects. Commissioner

the bids that were received and to
go with the lowest bid and
Commissioner Johnson seconded.
Board approved.
LEENETTE MCMILLAN,
COUNTY ATTORNEY:
Attorney McMillan reported that
the State of Florida recognizes
March 25th April 1st as Early
Learning Coalition Week. She has
prepared a proclamation. The
motion to approve the
proclamation from the Early
Learning Coalition was made by
Commissioner Hays and
Commissioner Hunt seconded.
Board approved.
Attorney McMillan stated that in
October of 2006 the Board
approved to give Larry Bush and
Sammy Woodall 5 feet each on
the cul de sac that they share. She


has prepared the deeds and they
need to be signed and recorded.
The. agreement between the
County and K & K Mining for
consultant work has been
prepared. The agreement is with
Brandi Corbin. Brandi Corbin
will use Billy Keen as a
consultant.
Attorney McMillan stated that the
leases at the industrial park need
to be consistent to the extent
possible. She will be reviewing the
leases in the next few weeks.
Commissioner Valentine and
Commissioner Hays thanked
Attorney McMillan for her
attention to these matters.


A Department of Environmental
Protection resolution was
presented that the Board agreed to
sign which included the T-hanger
design etc for the Cross City
Airport.
COMMISSIONER JOHNSON
Commissioner Johnson stated that
Coordinator Bellot would be
retiring within the next year and
the Board needed to start thinking
about a replacement.
Commissioner Hays agreed and
stated that they need to come up
with a list of requirements and get
him an assistant to begin learning
the job.
COMMISSIONER HAYS
Commissioner Hays stated that
Lisa Waters had asked that the
Board attend to grading the road
that she lives on which is County
Road 30.
Commissioner Valentine passed
the chair to Vice-Chairman Lamb.
Commissioner Valentine made the
motion to lower the impact fee to
$1.00 per square foot.
Commissioner Hays and
Commissioner Lamb stated that
this was too short of notice. The
impact fees are now $3500 and
were $550. Does everyone pay
the impact fee including SHIP
buildings? Coordinator Bellot
stated that any new construction is
subject to an impact fee.
Commissioner Lamb is not
opposed to this but he must
consider shopping centers, laundry
mats, etc. Commissioner
Valentine stated that square foot is
square foot. Commissioner Hunt
stated that he needed to study on it
as well. A member of the
audience commented that it would
be the most fair this way. The
motion died due to the lack of a
second and Commissioner Lamb
passed the chair back to
Commissioner Valentine.
Commissioner Hays thought about
hiring a company to compare our
county to other counties based on
size regarding the impact fee.
Commissioner Johnson stated that
he would like to look at different
avenues. A member of the
audience posed the question that
since a permit expires does that
mean the impact fee expires as
well? Coordinator Bellot
explained that the permit expires
not the fee. Commissioner Hays
made a motion to have an impact
fee study done and Commissioner
Lamb seconded. Board approved.

How Can The Social Security Disability Specialist At Integrated Family Services Help You?

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

'RELA Y"
tontd. from page I
Relay for Life is an overnight fun-filled fundraising event
designed to bring together those who have been touched by cancer
by celebrating survivorship, remembering those who lost their
battle with cancer and raising cancer awareness. During the event,
organized teams gather at schools, fairgrounds or parks and take
turns walking laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team
member on the track at all times. These events are held in different
communities throughout the nation and greatly benefit the
American Cancer Society cause, as well as those who participate.
"Everybody had a really good time," said Becky Evans, event
chair. "We had a really good turnout."


Cancer survivors and their loved ones taking part in the "Survivors'
Lap."


Luminaria bags line the OTES Track. Each bag had the name of a
cancer survivor or lost loved one written on it and a candle was placed
inside. After dark, all of the bags were placed together to spell out the

Organic Gardening 101

(NAPS)-How "green" is
your garden? You may be able
to make it even greener with
organic gardening methods.
Organic gardening is being
embraced by a new genera-
tion of gardeners who are con-
cerned about the environment
and their personal health.
The gardener who com-
mits to organic gardening
does not simply boycott arti-
ficial chemical fertilizers and
pesticides. He or she uses
techniques that build healthy


Buying plants in biodegrad-
able pots is one easy way
that organic gardeners can
make earth-friendly choices.

soil. Healthy soil, not chem-
icals, becomes the engine of
plant growth. Good harvests,
along with plants that resist
disease and pests, are the
byproducts of building
healthy soil.
A gardener can adopt sim-
ple organic gardening tech-
niques such as using Scotts
Organic Choice Lawn Food
or purchasing a vegetable
from the Earth Friendly
Naturals line made of
biodegradable pots. These
products and other organic
and natural fertilizers are
available at The Home Depot.

>or Play Is Key To Healthy Child Development


APS)-In the past, most
spent the bulk of their
time outdoors, socializ-
nd exercising in back-
s, at playgrounds and

Childhood have a ten-
y to be smarter, to score


higher on tests and to exhibit
more creativity.
The good news for par-
ents-the best learning envi-
ronment for children may be
right in the backyard. The
backyard provides a great out-
let through which children
can nurture creativity, develop
social and cognitive skills and
get physical exercise. It's a
natural environment for kids
to explore and isn't too far
from supervision.
Follow these tips to design
a kid-friendly, playful yard.
Sun vs. Shade
Where does your yard
receive the most sun? Play
areas should be positioned
where shade is available dur-
ing the hottest times of day.
Specialized Play Areas
Outdoor playcenters-com-
plete with slides, swings,
climbing walls and sand-
boxes--are great additions to
keep kids on the go. Do your
research and choose equip-
ment that is safe, easy to
assemble and built to last. For
something that keeps the kids
active but also won't be an


eyesore, you can check out
Huffy's new Playcenters at"
www.huffyplaycenters.com.
Gardens
Keep delicate, toxic and'
thorny plants away from play
areas. Instead, incorporate:
into your yard flowers that
are bright (zinnias), fragrant-
(lavender) and tactile (lamb's
ears) so that kids can explore
their unique colors, smells and
unusual textures. Let older
children help you pick out:
flowers to plant.
Water
Keep in mind that children
should never be left unat-
tended around fountains,
water features, pools or spas.
Drowning can occur in as lit-
tle as one inch of water.
The next time your kids are
mesmerized by the latest-and-
greatest in technology or TV,
move them outdoors to keep
their healthy development on
the right track.
