Mobile Home

Destroyed By Fire


City & County Officials Say Republican


Political Mail-Out Is Misleading


The first firefighters on the scene (far right) work quickly to extinguish
the fire that consumed the single-wide mobile home.
The Cross City and Old .Town Volunteer Fire Departments
responded Tuesday afternoon to a structure fire at 833 N.E. 446th
Street, Old Town. When firefighters arrived, they found .a single-
wide mobile home, owned by James Chavous, Jr. and his wife
S Samantha, consumed by flames and began working quickly to get
the fire under control.
' According to Cross City Fire Department Chief Danny Liles,
the fire apparently started from sparks given off by a cutting torch.
The owners were in the process of gutting the mobile home and
were using the torch to cut metal. They were using the home for
storage, and unfortunately, lost many family keepsakes in the fire.


County Working To

Pave Way For

Road Projects
By Briar Keathley
Dixie County Commissioners awarded last Thursday Anderson
Columbia the contract for the County Road 353 resurfacing
project.
According to the contract, Anderson Columbia has a 14-day
notice to proceed from the date the contract is signed, and 45 days
thereafter to complete the project. The project consists of the
resurfacing of approximately 8.9 miles of two-lane roadway.
Contracts with Anderson Columbia for two other road projects,
the resurfacing of CR 358 (Old 19) and the resurfacing and
widening of CR 358 (Jena Road) are pending an appeal to the
Florida Department of Transportation for additional funding. The
county received grants from FDOT for the road projects, however,
both project bids came in over budget.
"I know there are funds available, I just don't know how
much," said Phil Bishop of Bailey, Bishop and Lane, the county's
construction engineering firm. "In reality, these jobs should have
been done last August/ September when more funds were
available."
Each year, FDOT allocates a certain amount of money to be
awarded to counties for road construction projects. Toward the end
of the fiscal year, such as now, it is more difficult to obtain that
funding.
As of Tuesday, County Coordinator Arthur Bellot said the
county received notice that there is funding available, and enough
to cover the amount that was over budget.
Currently, the county also has contracts and approximately
$168,000 for four other local road construction projects, which
include Rilla Lord Road, Hollis Chewning Road, Ottis Brannin
Loop Road, and S.E. 301 Street.

By Briar Keathley '
The Republican Party of Florida
recently sent a political mail-out to Cross
City residents endorsing Charlie Dean for
State Senate District 3.
According to City Manager Mike
Cassidy, the mail-out provides misleading
and incorrect information regarding Cross
City's drinking water.
In it, the mail-out states: 'How can this
be? How can a town in one of the most
prosperous states in America have water
unfit to drink? As residents of Cross City,
you know the issue all too well. You, or
someone you know, are forced to buy
bottled water. You receive alert letters
each quarter as to the status of the drinking
water, the most recent of which suggested
the water may still be less than safe. This
is unacceptable."
Cassidy said that although the Town of
Cross City has to mail out quarterly
notices regarding the city's water, the
water is fully approved by the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
for distribution and consumption. He
explained that the city is not on a boiled
water notice, citizens do not have to buy
bottled water, and the water is not
contaminated or undrinkable.


By Briar Keathley
A two-hour public hearing last Thursday
regarding a $1.68 million wastewater facility
plan for Steinhatchee and Jena ended with no
action and financial worries.
Where will the money come from to pay for
preconstruction costs?
Would there be enough money generated
from customers' monthly fees and connection
fees to repay the $1.68 million construction
loan?
"I know we need sewer, but I don't want
Dixie County to be liable for another bill," said
Dixie County Commissioner James Valentine.
Like Valentine, Commissioners shared
financial concerns about the proposed
wastewater facility plan, deciding to wait to
approve the plan until those issues are resolved.
According to Rex Dunn of Steinhatchee
Water Association, once it is approved by the
Board, the plan will be submitted for approval
by the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection, thus allowing for funding to be
dispersed and the project to move forward.
The plan, as presented by Dunn and Mike
Murphy of Hatch, Mott, MacDonald, one of the
engineering firms hired to design the plan, is for
a restricted service area wastewater facility to
serve, initially, approximately 234 new
construction units in Steinhatchee and Jena-78


Two

Injured In

Rear-End

Collision
A rear-end collision
occurred last Wednesday at the
intersection of State Road 349
and Purvis Landing Road.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report, Rosalie
A. Stone, 68, was traveling
north on SR 349 approaching
the intersection of Purvis
Landing Road, while David E.
Tyndale, 55, also of Old Town,
was driving behind her. As
Stone's vehicle slowed down
to turn right onto Purvis
Landing Road, Tyndale's
vehicle failed to slow down in
time and struck the rear of
Stone's vehicle. The impact
caused Stone's vehicle to
overturn onto its left side and
slide across Purvis Landing
Road. Tyndale's vehicle
traveled onto the west shoulder
of SR 349 and struck a power
pole.
Stone and Tyndale received
incapacitating injuries from the
accident.
Tyndale was cited for
careless driving.


When asked where this information
came from, Charlie Dean's campaign
manager, Ryan Tyson, said that Charlie
Dean had nothing to do with the mail-out
and did not even know it had been sent to
Cross City residents.
"(Dean) is in special session right
now," Tyson said. "He hasn't even seen
the mail-out."
Tyson explained that it is perfectly
legal for the Republican Party of Florida to
send out a political advertisement without
a candidate endorsing it. The disclaimer at
the bottom of the mail-out sent to Cross
City residents states, "Paid Political
Advertisement Paid For By Republican
Party Of Florida Independently Of Any
Candidate."
Tyson said, "This is not Dean's
message, he did not endorse it."
Republican Party of Florida Press
Secretary Erin VanSickle said that the
information came straight from the
quarterly notices sent to Cross City
residents. >
"Political campaigns are about issues,
and the issue of water quality is clearly
important to the voters in Cross City and in
Senate District 3," Van Sickle stated. "It is


in Taylor County and 156 in Dixie County. To
date, 26 units have already been built on the
Taylor County side of the service area. None
have been built on the Dixie County side.
"This will be a backbone system to serve
new customers in order to prevent additional
package wastewater treatment plants or septic
tanks from being built," Murphy said. "One of
the motivating forces behind this facilities plan
is to try to provide central sewer service to Jena
and Steinhatchee, which means avoiding small
package wastewater treatment plants and try
avoiding septic tanks."
He explained that some developers had
permits to build package treatment plants and
some had plans to start installing septic tanks.
Developers George Howard and Charlie
Kinnard spoke during the hearing, both offering
similar takes on the wastewater facility. They
felt that the connection fee-currently $6,500
per unit-for the facility was too high and that
they should be able to build package treatment
plants to service their units.
"I think there's been a general agreement
that in the long run, that's not the way to head;
in the long run, the way to head is centralized
sewer collection with a single, possibly two,
treatment plants that can be manned in the
See "PLAN" page 5


our job here at the Republican Party of
Florida not only to inform voters of issues
like this, but also to work towards
common-sense solutions for our.
taxpayers." %
However, according to Cassidy,:
misinforming citizens about drinking water:
is a public safety issue.
Republican voters living outside the:
city limits also received a political mail-,
out from the Republican Party of Florida
regarding Dixie County's roads. The mail-::
out mentioned that roads such as "Spillers'
Highway, Coffee Drive, McCrabb Drive,-
796th Street, Hammock Road and Highway:
349" are in need of upgrades and major:
repairs.
The mail-out further stated "Good,,
functional roads are a basic need that is
just not being addressed in Dixie County,"
which, according to County Coordinatot-
Arthur Bellot is also misleading, because:
the county is working dutifully, to make
necessary road repairs and upgrades

The Florida Highway
Patrol released Monday the
identity of a man who was
killed Friday night in an
alcohol-related crash on
County Road 349 near Old
Town.
According to FHP Lt. Mike
Burroughs, the man has been
identified as Miguel Morales,
40, of Live Oak.
The FHP report shows that
the crash occurred at 9 p.m.
Eleazar Rios, 21, Old Town,
was driving south in the
northbound lane on CR 349
without the headlights of his
Ford van turned on, while a
four-door Buick was also
being driven in the northbound
lane by Federico Cruz
Figueroa, 27, Old Town. Both
drivers attempted to take
evasive action and steered into
the southbound lane, at which
time the right front of Rios',
van struck the right side of the

moderate rate of speed. The
jumping sturgeon hit her,
knocking her unconscious.
Spears was transported to
North Florida Regional
Medical Center in Gainesville
by Gilchrist County emergency
medical services with non-life-
threatening injuries, FWC

By Briar Keathley
More than 300 people attended a retirement party Saturday,
June 2, 2007, for Horseshoe Beach Mayor Katherine Hutchison.
She is retiring after sitting 14 years on the Horseshoe Beach City
Council, 10 of which she served as mayor.
"I'll still be helping out," Mayor Hutchison said. "This is my
heart. I was born and raised here."
Although she will sit as mayor for her last time at the July 5
council meeting, Hutchison plans to continue playing an active role
in the community; just as she has always done.
"She's retiring as mayor, but she's still going to be on call,"
said Martha McBurnette with a laugh.
Over the years, Hutchison was part of making several
accomplishments for Horseshoe Beach come to fruition. To name a

She's in the jailhouse now...
Well, at least she was last I heard. Who? Paris Hilton, of
course! What planet have you been on for the past week?
z- I guess this must be important, because it's all the media have
talked about. I think there might have been something about
wannabe terrorists plotting to blow up New York's JFK Airport,
but I understand the venerable New York Times buried that story on
page 37, so we know what's really important, now, don't we?
No, I'm not just poking fun at the poor little rich girl who got
sentenced to a stint in the slam just like the common people. I'm
wondering why she almost didn't.
Get busted for DUI and then get caught driving again before
you've done your penance and you get to spend a little time as a
guest of the county in which your transgression took place, or at
least that's how it works for we poor unfortunates who must work
for a living. Anyone who thinks that gets the average Joe Sixpack
gets off with a slap on the wrist and that the LA County judge was
just picking on poor Paris needs a reality check.
After spending essentially two days of her original 45 day
sentence (she was locked up for a few minutes before and after
midnight going in and coming out, thus gaining her credit for 4
days), Paris was released to spend the rest of the time on house
arrest in her luxurious mansion, by order of the LA County sheriff.
When the judge got wind of this, he ordered Paris back to court and
told her she would be spending her time in the county lockup just
like the lowly working class. Her teary tantrums and crying for
help from her mommy notwithstanding, she was off to stone walls
and iron bars.
Want to fee sorry for someone who got locked up unjustly? How
about Lewis "Scooter" Libby? He just got sent up for 30 months for
allegedly lying to federal investigators about an incident which, in
the final analysis, turned out not to have been a crime under any
existing statute.
All right, it's a punishable offense to lie when questioned by the
FBI. But shouldn't an actual crime be involved? Libby's alleged
malfeasance involved "outing" Valerie Plame, a CIA employee
who was holding down a desk job and was therefore not covered by
a law prohibiting disclosure of a CIA undercover agent.
It was a political hatchet job in an effort to embarrass the Bush
administration, Libby having been a top assistant to Vice-President
Dick Cheney. It would hardly be "Clintonesque" if Bush were to
correct this injustice with a presidential pardon, but thus far there
has been no indication that this will happen.
Let us next consider two working class types who are in jail but
shouldn't be. Their names are Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso
Compean, and they are not illegal aliens who were caught stealing
Paris Hilton's frilly unmentionables off her clothes line. Ramos
and Compean are--make that were--Border Patrol agents who
were locked up for shooting an illegal alien who was smuggling
drugs into the United States.
They didn't kill the smuggler, by the way. In fact they just
lodged a bullet in his backside, leaving him quite able to testify
against the agents. To secure their conviction, the drug smuggler
was given immunity from prosecution for his own crimes.
Last we heard, the smuggler was filing a multi-million dollar
lawsuit over a piece of lead in his gluteus maximus. And we
wonder why illegal immigration and drug smuggling continue
virtually unabated.
Mr. President, if you can't see your way clear to enforce the
existing immigration and drug laws, you might at least let federal
agents who can out of jail for doing their job.
And meanwhile, if you're worried about how pardoning these
guys will affect your image with the left wing media, go ahead and
pardon Paris Hilton too.

Letter To The Editor
I couldn't sleep so I figured I would write a paper on the thing
that keeps me awake
"Those who fail to remember Histoiy are doomed to repeat it."
(Or something like that.)

Peace in the Middle East.
By: Michael Coleman
I ask a question that is weighing on millions of American
minds. Is our presence in Iraq necessary? I think it is!
Iraq is a country torn among its self. Starving, and ignorant to
what is going on in the rest of the world. This combined with the
lack of proper leadership and you have the recipe for the
holocaust, with the lack of one ingredient. A fascist, religious,
good crowed talking, Insane! Leader. That is exactly what is
growing in Iraq. If America pulls out our troops, that country will
fall to the hands of a powerful, religious warlord. When that
happens, the rest of the world can sit back and wait for the Middle
East to get nuclear power and combined and then it is too late to
stop them. If a group of people believe they will go straight to
heaven if they blow up the world in the name of Allah, what will
stop them when they have the chance.
I get so tired of hearing about how it is not our concern, and
how there is no weapons of mass destruction. There is a weapon
of mass destruction in Iraq. I described it in my last paragraph.
America once had a policy on foreign affairs. It came right after
World War I. It was a closed country policy. This policy said that
if it didn't directly affect the US we would not get in it. When
World War II started, the US stayed out of it. As two countries
grew stronger and stronger, the US just sat back and did nothing.
Then out of the blue, Japan comes knocking on our back door.
Several years and millions of people later the US has a new
policy. Now the US will have its nose in every thing that goes on
in the world.
So we put our nose in everyone's business and we get bit. The
world trade center falls! People say it is because of our
involvement in the Middle East. I agree. It was. If we never had
anything to do with the politics of the Middle East, terrorists
probably would not have attacked the world trade center. The
Middle East would have probably faulted among them selves
until one power took over and then they would have been
combined and would have tried to take over the world. Then
instead of losing thousands we would have lost millions.
So we do as our policies say and we try to keep peace in a
country that doesn't want peace. I understand that we are losing
thousands of US lives in Iraq every year but, it is for a cause of a
greater good. Don't say, "It is easy for me to say that sitting safe
in America". I said that when I was with the ARMY as we rolled
across the border and caused the fall of a fascist dictator in Iraq. I
also said that when we were there for months longer than we were
told we were going to be and we had to work to rebuild a country
with the same people that were shooting at us weeks earlier. I will
be saying that if we do pull out of Iraq and I will be saying it
when we have to go back in and fight a powerful dictator years
later.
The quote at the top of my page says those who forget history
are doomed to repeat it. I think the US has done a good job not
repeating history. Of course we are repeating a bit of history,
Vietnam for instance. We should have taken full control of Iraq
when we had the chance. We could have got it under control,
helped build a government, got Iraq back on its feet and running
its self and then let them have there county back. Instead we let
politics back us off and drag out a conflict.
If we would have rushed in and took over that country we
would have looked like bullies: So we go in slow and it looks like
a lost cause. Either way, we look wrong. The problem with
looking right is when we would have found out we were wrong it
would have been too late.
I close by saying, if we did nothing else; we took the terrorist
bombs out of the US and put it back where it came from. Now our
homes and our children and our families know where to expect an
attack and know where to feel safe.
God protect the Iraqis that are fighting to save their country,
the troops that help them and forgive those who speak against
their cause and the terrorists who know no better.


Letter To The Editor
Mr. Prater was right on target with his "it is amnesty no matter
what you may call it" article. Mr. Prater failed to point out that
our two Florida senators, Senator Nelson, a Democrat, and
Senator Martinez, a Republican, are both backers of this amnesty
bill. Neither pays attention to the desires of those people that
elected them, me being one of them who, unfortunately, voted for
both.
We put them in office to represent us, not Mexico, other
Central American countries, China, Russia or wherever the
illegals are coming from. It is totally false that these people come
only to pick fruit. They take whatever job they can get and in
doing so have totally destroyed the salary base for many trades.
The politicians and liberal advocates claim they only take jobs
American don't want.
The only reason Americans don't want those jobs is because so
many illegals have taken the jobs at below livable wages that an
American can no longer afford to take them. It is also a myth that
"we need" these people to hold prices down so we can compete in
the foreign markets. If our greedy CEO made reasonable salaries
rather than $20 million, $100 million and on up, they could easily
keep the price of their product competitive as well as pay for
medical and retirement for their employees.
As Mr. Prater wrote, all we need to do is enforce the laws that
were passed back in 1986 when we were supposed to have our
"last" amnesty bill that would ever have to be passed and the
problem would correct itself.
Sincerely, Charlie Jones


Letter To The
Editor
I am writing because I have a
couple of questions for
Government and State Workers
(DCF, Children Home Society),
Judges, and Lawyers. For all the
ones who think it's okay to tear
families apart because of financial
problems, or maybe they don't
live in the greatest homes. To all
of you who take part in taking
children for those reasons, have
considered all the children in other
poverty stricken countries? Do
you contribute to helping those
children? Is there a difference
between those children and our
children? They are all GOD's
children. How do you decide on
what rules to go by? The way I
see it, the rules get changed
according to who the family is. I
pray that the LORD will open
your eyes before it's to late. Nina

"ROADS" contd. from page 1
For the 2007-2008 fiscal year, beginning July 1, the county will
receive $2 million from FDOT to fund four more road projects.
These projects include the resurfacing of N.E. 512 Avenue from
CR 351 North to SR 349 North, which links Higginbotham Store
to McCrabb Baptist Church; the resurfacing of Gornto Springs
Road from SR 349 North to the end of the pavement; the widening
and resurfacing of Spillers Road from CR 351 to SR 349; and the
widening and resurfacing of Veterans Road from US 19 to Cross
City Correctional Institute.
Getting an early start on the 2008-2009 fiscal year, the county
is applying for a County Incentive Grant to fund the construction
of left turning lanes at certain intersections on State Road 349,
including SR 349 and Purvis Landing Road, SR 349 and County
Road 351, SR 349 and Spillers Highway, and SR 349 and CR 353.
The turning lanes are expected to alleviate accidents and eliminate
congestion.

few, Hutchison helped the community receive grants for the ball
park and playground, helped get the channel and canals dredged,
worked to get a grant from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection to construct a water plant, and helped get
grants for the repaving of five Horseshoe Beach roads.
"She's always done things for people; that's just the way she
is," McBurnette said. "She believes very strongly in this
community and the people in it."
McBurnette helped organize the retirement party for Hutchison,
which was held at Gulf Coast Supply and Manufacturing. She said
people from all over the state as well as out of state attended.
"It was wonderful," Hutchison said. "We had a great time and
I thank everyone."
During the party, Hutchison was presented with a $3,300 check
from the community of Horseshoe Beach. She was also honored
with plaques, including ones from the Commercial Waterman
Association, Horseshoe Beach Firemen, and State Representative
Allen Boyd's office, and a framed letter from Gov. Charlie Crist.
Hutchison said she is appreciative of the support she received
.from the community as well as the local, state and federal agencies
,over the years.
"They really worked with me," she said. "And helped
,Horseshoe Beach a lot."
Running for her seat on city council are Martha McBurnette
and Teddy Kight. The election will be held July 10.


KENDRICK, Coot. From Pg.
& State Lands which oversees the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, as well as, other environmental and
budget committees in the House, says, "that serving on this
Commission seemed to be a natural fit given my House
Committee assignments and also the fact that the District 10
House seat spans over five counties that are directly adjacent to
the Gulf of Mexico."
"This appointment will certainly give me the opportunity to
see the larger picture as it relates to resource protection and the
sciences that are used to determine policy for resource
protection on a larger scale. I am certain that this will prove to
be an invaluable experience that can be applied locally here in
our State", Kendrick continued.
Kendrick, who often has been seen as one of the few
members willing to stand up for commercial fishermen, says
this will give him first hand experience and contacts in terms of
how other states are handling resource protection issues and the
many conflicts that exist among users of these most valuable
resources.
Over the next few weeks, Kendrick will be busy being briefed
on the issues that are before the Commission and becoming
familiar with the duties associated with the appointment.

"PLAN" contd. from page 1
course of DEP requirements," Murphy said.
In his presentation, Murphy discussed two options for the
wastewater facility.
The option his firm is recommending is the less costly of the
two, and will have less of an environmental impact on what is such
an environmentally sensitive area. The system will utilize a
combination of four pump stations and force mains. Part of the
system has already been installed on the Taylor County side of the
service area, Murphy said, and work could begin on the Dixie
County side because it has been designed and permitted, but the
lack of funding has prevented any pipe line or pump stations to be
installed.
Taylor County received a $400,000 allocation from the state to
help with the estimated $584,494 preconstruction cost.
Dixie County Commissioners wanted to know how the shortfall
would be paid financially. More importantly, they wanted to make
sure that the money would not come from ad valorem taxes.
Dunn assured them that the taxpayers' money would not be
used for preconstruction costs or to repay the $1.68 million
construction loan.
As it states in the loan document though, a portion of ad
valorem money has to be set aside to guarantee that the loan can be
repaid-collateral, essentially.
Dunn said the document is being changed so that nothing in it
will state that Dixie County is responsible for repaying the loan if
in the event there was not enough money generated each year from
connection fees and customers' monthly fees.
Dunn and Murphy will return at the next Commission meeting
June 21 to hopefully alleviate Commissioners' financial worries
and have the wastewater facility plan approved.

First Baptist Of
Steinhatchee

Church News
We have a blessed new
baby girl! She is an addition to
the Mitchell family here at
Steinhatchee First Baptist
Church Little Tori Narie was
born to the proud parents:
Todd and Niecey Mitchell on
Monday June 4, 2007 at 12:42
p.m.! She weighed 7 lbs. and 8
oz. and was 20 inches long.
The Mitchell family has just
enlarged their home by ..two
feet!!! The proud grandparents
are Mitch and Carolyn
Mitchell! Little Tori is their
third grandchild! Also loved is
our great grandparents, Fred
and Mary Kate Mitchell also of
Steinhatchee!
We are in the middle of our
Vacation Bible School, ending
on Friday. Sooooo "come on
down" and finish the week
with us in "The Rescue
Zone 6:30 p.m. You will hear
about it next week! And wish
you had planned to come on
Monday night when it started!
We had Dr. Luther
Spivey and his wife
Nancy visit in our p.m.
service!. Pastor Spivey is a
Missionary to Mexico.
They are building many
churches down there with his
love, knowledge, direction and
guidance! They are continually
teaching and training men to
become new Pastors to spread
God's Holy Word. Thank
you for sharing that inspiring
message! Also during the
evening service we enjoyed a

The Word Made Flesh
The Name Of The Beast
Continued from last week.
The 6-6-6 is pointing directly to
incompletion, and will all be under
the CARNAL MIND, under this
fleshly human nature. These
SIXES are a part of the arithmetic
of God. They work in all the
human race. SIX is the NUMBER
connected with Satan, his
influence on man and his evil
deeds and false worship. The
FIGURES connect spiritually all
the way from Eden until now.
They are not the MARK OF THE
BEAST, nor are they NUMBERS
OF THE BEAST. You must
Receive them as NUMBERS and
what they mean if you ever learn
the MARK. Incompletion is still
under the Beast-like nature, still
under fleshly human nature, and
trying to get somewhere
spiritually. The Israelites came
though this fleshly Beast-like
nature; they were like that. Now
we are all the way to the Gentile,
Sand you look at the great harlot
system that is showing up in the
'human race today. "This is in
respect to religious believing
I people, not disrespect." All these
:blasphemous names are in the
BEAST and under this woman
that sits upon him. This woman
-would like to be recognized as the
rQueen of Heaven or be called the
bridegroom's wife. The Beast she
'is sitting on wants to be called
:Jesus Christ. He wants religious
people to believe he is Christ.
'This Beast wants all the world to
isee what he has together in the
,-name of Jesus Christ. He wants
,everybody to see how he uses
-Jesus' name in his religious
-doctrines. Who is this woman?
This woman is called
'MYSTERY, BABYLON THE
GREAT, THE MOTHER OF
'HARLOTS and
-ABOMINATIONS OF THE
*EARTH." (Rev.17:5) Why do
Satan's ministers claim the name
of the SON OF GOD? As we
-come into the "Name of the Beast"
*you will be able to understand
'what his name really is and why
he wants all the worldto recognize
what his name is. Let me put out a
word of warning at this time
*concerning the name of the Beast.
.ILet it not be said out of the mouth
':of anyone, said the Beast's name
- was Jesus. We are not comparing
'the Holy child Jesus and His
coming to the human race with
anything the devil has. But, we
are showing the world that Satan,
the devil changes his mark every


chance he gets and introduces a
new religion into whomever he
can twist it into. Remember the
words of the Lord Jesus "...take
heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall
deceive many." (St. Matthew
24:4-5) This does not say they are
coming in their name. It says they
are coming in the NAME of the
Lord JESUS CHRIST. Every
Antichrist spirit must use Jesus'
name in one way or the other.
That is why they are so deceptive,
so cunning, and so subtle.
Continued next week.


bluegrass hymn, by Dixie
Southerland, Steven Reed,

VBS At Old

Town Church

Of Christ
"Heroes of the Bible", will
be the theme for Vacation
Bible School held at the Old
Town Church of Christ. Dates
for this event are Monday,
June 25th Thursday, June
28th, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30
p.m. nightly. Classes for all
ages 2 years to adult! No food,
only food for the soul! We are
located behind Banker's Title
Services, U.S. 19 in Old Town.
Lydia Baptist

Church News
What a privilege we enjoy
to worship in the house of the
Lord! Another joyous Sunday
at Lydia began with our own
Lydia Quartet singing "What a
Lovely Name" surely
everybody's favorite!
The children's message
from Ms. Elaine Hines
motivated us not only to
exercise for our physical


health, but to exercise our
hearts for spiritual health! If
your life seems sluggish and
out of focus, open your heart to
Jesus and He will energize you
spiritually and emotionally.
Pastor Wayne Allen
brought us a captivating
message from Proverbs 23:26.
We need to give our whole
heart to God, not just a part of
our life. God gave us the
freedom to make choices: we
must choose to listen to the
Holy Spirit. God wants our
whole heart because He loves
us and only wants to make us
happy. However, we cannot
live in a way that is pleasing to
God if we shun Him by
seeking worldly rewards. Is
there enough room for God to
get to your heart, or is it
packed full with things of the
world?
Our vacation Bible School
begins June 25th. There will be
inspiring lessons from the
Word, and the children will
also enjoy cowboys, horses,
and calf-roping.


Remember, at Lydia
everybody is somebody and
Christ is everything
Faith Baptist

Church News
Today was a beautiful and
blessed Lord's day. We thank
God for all of His blessings.
We pray that He will put a
shield around our folks who
are traveling and will bring
them back safely. We also
pray for the ones who are sick,
are preparing for surgery, and
those who have lost loved
ones. God knows each and
every need. We especially
pray for the lost. May they
realize they need God and turn
to Him before it's too late.
Our Vacation Bible School
will begin June 24th and
continue through June 29th,
starting at 6:00 p.m. and
continuing until 8:30 p.m.
nightly. There will be classes
for all ages, so plan now to
attend and invite a friend,
neighbor or co-worker to come


with you. God will bless you
for your efforts.
We especially want to
thank God for the wonderful
rain He sent our way last week
and we pray that He will see fit
to send us more real soon.
Have a wonderful week
and we hope to see you
Wednesday night for prayer
meeting and our monthly
business meeting. As a
member of Faith, it's our duty
to be there, take part in the
meetings and take care of
God's business. Until we meet
again, we wish you good
health, happiness and safety.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
"Heaven And Hell" Rev 21:3
Continued from last week. Sense of hearing, sense of smell, sense of
taste, sense of sight, and sense of touch, these five senses of the body, of
the moral laws of an inflow within. They are sensible of the things, which
flow in from without. The inflow from within is from the spiritual world
and the inflow from without is from the natural world. Nothing exists,
subsists, is acted upon or moved of itself, but from another thing.
Everything exists, subsists, is acted upon and moved, from the first
(Being), who is not from another, but in Himself is a living force which is
life. Nothing can be acted upon and moved unless it be in the midst
between two forces. One, which acts and the other reacts, one acts on one
part and one on the other. We must understand that one acts from within,
and the other from without. When these two forces are at rest it makes an
equilibrium, they come to and counteract with each other. Nothing can be
acted upon or moved, unless it is in equilibrium, when it is acted upon, it
.is out of the equilibrium. Man is connected with heaven not only as to
thoughtss and affections, but also to organic forms both interior and
exterior; without this connection man could not subsist even for a moment.
"The universal heaven is the Grand Man. It is the Lord's Divine Human.
For the Lord is the only man. Let not man think he is a man within
Himself, because he has a face and human, and a brain, and also many
parts in the body. Beast has a body also. Man and beast die and become a
carcass. But man is man because he is capable of thinking and willing and
receiving those things, which are Divine. Man s gifted to live again and
be angels. Thus truly, man, "let thy kingdom come that thy will be done
on earth as it is done in heaven." Love you. Continued next week

The Steinhatchee AARP Field Trip


The Steinhatchee AARP enjoyed a field trip May 21, 2007 to
Homosassa Springs. Before going to the springs we enjoyed a nice
lunch at Cracker's Restaurant in Crystal River. Some of the 12 had
been to the springs before and some had never been. Formthe ones
who had been in years before, it had changed a lot, but, for the better.
The Manatee Show was nice where the Manatee's came right up
close for you to see how easy going and large they actually are. Also
looking at them from under water was a nice change and the feeling
you were down there with them.
We all look forward to another field trip after we start our
meetings again in September.
The Chairman of the Field Trips is Jerry Moorehouse and Elaine
Howell. Elaine Howell, Co-Chair Field Trips.

Ruth Rains Middle School Baseball Team
On May 17"', the Ruth Rains Rangers Middle School Baseball
Team was treated to a steak dinner by school board members, Mr.
Pat Bell and Mr. Top Rollison at the Cypress Inn Restaurant. Mr.
Pat and Mr. Top are visibly supportive of the school's teams along
with all school functions. The baseball team greatly appreciates
your support.
After the meal the team was off to Gainesville to attend the ,
University of Florida / University of Tennessee baseball game.
The team was treated to an on-the-field pep talk regarding
"character, honor, and being appreciative", by head Gator baseball ,
coach Pat McMahon. It was a very inspiring talk. The team was
very attentive as Coach McMahon spoke. As the game proceeded
to begin each of the RRMS players took their respective positions
on the field with the U of F Gator players for the playing of the
National Anthem.
The RRMS team then left the field to watch the game. After
the game the team waited to get autographs from players such as
Matt La Porta (who was just selected in the first round of the
Major League Baseball draft). The Gator players were very
gracious with lots of photos being taken. The team then headed
home.
Thanks to Mr. Gary Jones who helped coached this year.
Thanks to Mr. Gary & Mrs. Donna Jones, Mr. Terry & Mrs.
Christy Roberts, Mr. Mike & Mrs. Robin Cassidy and Mr.
Marshall Philmon for your help this year and for helping with the
trip to Gainesville.
Thanks also to Mrs. Beverly Baumer, Mr. Storey and all the
parents for their support. Thanks again to Mr. Top and Mr. Pat for
helping to make this a great evening for these guys.

The Buddy Show
*by Buddy Martin

Jon Gruden's genie

may not be enough
In this
Summer of Discontent,
Jon Gruden can be
-thankful for the Tampa
Bay Devil Rays, whose '

incompetence has C ~ '
pushed the ineptitude '
of the Bucs to the back
of the sports page.
Blowing
"a six-run lead in the
bottom of the ninth at Toronto two weeks ago caused enough
'angst on sports talk radio to make them forget that Gruden's
pathetic offense produced fewer touchdowns (23) than his
mediocre defense did sacks (25) in 2006.
Obviously aware of this, Gruden decided to let the
,genie out of the bottle last week and pretend like he had three new
wishes. That must be the only reason that he told those in
attendance at the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce that his
starting quarterback was going to be the newly acquired Jeff
Garcia.
This is no real news bulletin, but it was a little
surprising that he noted that Garcia would have "a big lead" over
recovering Chris Simms. All Simms did for his coach after
irupturing his spleen was put his life on the line for his coach. Ah,
NFL loyalty.
Then Gruden tired to play down his Garcia
maneuver. He would probably also like to play down the fact that
.the 37-year-old Garcia, playing with his fifth team in five years,
was signed to a similar contract as Simms, who gets $7 million
with bonuses that could potentially double that.
This is the action of a desperate man coming off a
iriserable failure of a season 4 wins, 12 losses who was
merely throwing a bone to his rapidly eroding fan base. There are
rumblings afoot that Gruden is working on a short leash in 2007
and that if there isn't some significant improvement, he'll be
thrown overboard by the Big Pirate.
In other words, by the time Gruden gets to the open
date, anything short of 4-4 will be unacceptable. Realistically, I
gee losses for the Bucs in the opener against New Orleans, at St.
Louis, at Indianapolis, against Tennessee, and against
Jacksonville. Presuming they can beat Carolina, Detroit and
Arizona, that puts them at 3-5 by Nov. I1.
Jeff Garcia, bring your ear plugs. Jon Gruden, keep
the telephone number of Mayflower nearby.
Quick Jump Starts
1. Congratulations to Matt LaPorta and his family for him being
picked seventh overall by the Brewers, but maybe it's time for
MLB.com to change its info on him as a "big, strong left-handed
power-hitting first baseman." (He's right-handed.)
2. Some of those brilliant folks in the State Legislature who
originally hiccupped at Billy Donovan's $2.9 million deal wound
ip costing the University of Florida another $600,000 total on
Donovan's and Urban Meyer's final contracts.
3. When Paris Hilton said she enjoyed frequenting bars, I don't
hink she meant being behind them.

The Gainesville Gators 18-U softball team came out of the losers bracket and won the tournament
this past weekend. After losing to team out of Valdosta, Georgia and defeating two other teams they
were faced with the task of playing the Georgia team for the championship. The Gators forced a
second game when they defeated the Georgia team 7-3. In the second game the Gators were down 2-1
in the bottom of the seventh, bases loaded, two outs when a hit to the outfield drove in two runs to
give the a 3-2 victory.

4. The San Antonio Spurs are not only the most unselfish
offensive team in the NBA. but deceptively great with their shut-
down offense
5. Blame long-departed Nick Saban and his staff for the mess
Daunte Culpepper finds himself in, because they pushed the
Dolphins quarterback to come back and play before he was ready
and now Daunte is about to be released as damaged goods.
Short Stuff
Here's the bad news for Bobby Bowden: The Seminoles' 2007
schedule is ranked toughest in the country by Sporting News ..
John Daly showed up for the St. Jude in Memphis with cuts on
his face and told police his wife took a steak knife after him, but I
think he really cut his cheek while going after a stray Twinkie ...
Maybe Michelle Wie needed to go to qualifying school, after all.
This just in: Ranking the BCS Coaches
The new Sporting News dares to rank the best BCS coaches, with
Pete Carroll of USC first, Jim Tressel of Ohio State second,
Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer sixth, South Carolina's Steve
Spurrier eighth, Florida's Urban Meyer 12th, FSU's Bobby
Bowden 14th. Penn State's Joe Paterno was 18th, Tennessee's
Phil Fulmer 31st, LSU's Les Miles 41st and Miami's Randy
Shannon 62nd. How on earth somebody thinks they can lend any
credence to such a poll is just plain astonishing. (Is that you, Matt
Hayes?) If you're talking body of work here, you'd have to put
Bowden, Paterno, Spurrier and Beamer in a different category,
right up there with Carroll.
Nothing but Net
(With a little help from Buddy's cyberfriends)
The Name Game
The nickname given 6-9, rubber-pretzel-like Corey Brewer with
the helter-skelter style of play by his former teammate, Joakim
Noah, was "Wild-Buck Basketball" ... Alabama fans Diana and
Keith McMunn of Huntsville, Ala. named their new son Bryant
Crimson M. honest ... The nickname of the local high school
girls' basketball teams in Georgetown, Ohio is "Lady G-Men" and
Tuscaloosa, Ala. "Holt Lady Ironmen."
Things You Should Know By Age 50
(From AARP Magazine)
1. The $25 wine won't impress them (your hosts) any more than
the $10 wine.
2. If you buy it, use it.
3. Don't try to talk like a teen. By the time you understand their

This Father's Day, Show Someone

You Love How Much You Care
By Louis B. Sullivan
District Manager, Gainesville, Florida
On Father's Day, we celebrate the special men in our
lives. There are a number of ways you can show someone you
love how much you care. This year, while you're watching the
ball game or spending some quality time together, tell that special
someone about something that can really make a difference. Tell
them how to get extra help with their Medicare prescription dr6g
costs.
S The high cost of medicine can be a burden on your loved
ones who have limited income and resources. Extra help -
9 available through Social Security can pay part of their monthly
premiums, annual deductibles and prescription co-payments. The
extra help could be worth more than $3,300 per year.
To figure out whether they're eligible, Social Security
needs to know your loved one's income and the value of their
savings, investments and real estate (other than the home they live
in). To qualify for the extra help, your loved one must be
receiving Medicare and have:
Income limited to $15,315 for an individual or $20.535
for a married couple living together. Even if their annual inconie
is higher, your loved ones still may be able to get some help with
monthly premiums, annual deductibles and prescription c.o-
payments. Some examples where income may be higher include
4V if they or their spouse:
-Support other family members who live with them:
-Have earnings from work; or
--Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and
Resources limited to $11,710 for an individual-or
$23,410 for a married couple living together. Resources include
such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count
9 their house and car as resources.
Social Security has an easy-to-use online application that
anyone family members, friends and caregivers can
complete. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov. To apply
* by phone or get an application, call Social Security at 1-800-772-
1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Help
with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA-1020). Or go
to the nearest Social Security office for assistance.
% To learn more about the Medicare prescription cfrug
plans and special enrollment periods, visit www.medicare.gov pr
rs call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227;TTY 1-877-486-2048).
Ss So this Father's Day, give someone you care about
something special: the peace of mind that comes from knowing
extra help is available with Medicare prescription drug costs.
Then go one step further help them apply. There is no better
way to show how much you care.

Dixie County Humane Society
Pet Of The Week
We are overwhelmed in
our county by the number of
puppies and kittens being
born.
Here is a sobering .
fact: If a dog or cat has 4 It -
offspring every year (a low
number), and 2 of the -
offspring are female...and
each of these females also"
has 4 offspring a year, and 2 "
I'm cute and I'm available
of these offspring are female...by the 7th year, the original mother
will have 4,372 descendants. These are very low figures as a cat
can have 4 litters a year with more than 4 kittens per litter. This is
an impossible number of pets to find homes for.
Please help us to get the pet population in our county under
control by making an appointment today to have your pet spayed
or neutered. What a difference you could make.
We will be returning to CITGO gas station on the comer of
US 19 and HWY 349 in Old Town this coming Saturday from
12:30 to 4:00 p.m. for our pet adoptions.

DICK EDWARDS, COMMUNITY
PROGRAMS COORDINATOR:
CDBG:
We recently awarded new
manufactured homes to four applicants.
Two of the units were bid according to
specifications. One home will require the
installation of a wheelchair ramp and the
compliance committee is asking for
authorization to prepare contracts for the
revised costs. The motion to approve the
authorization was made by Commissioner
Hays and was seconded by Commissioner
Johnson. Board approved.
Bryan-Co Services has encountered a
bathroom renovation problem on the
Marlene Markham project which will
require $4,000 to correct. The compliance
committee is requesting authorization for
the change order. Commissioner
Valentine passed the Chair to
Commissioner Lamb and made the motion
to approve the authorization and
Commissioner Hunt seconded. Board
approved. Commissioner Lamb passed
the chair back to Commissioner Lamb.
Contractor Lester Paulk had to install a
27' wheelchair ramp and replace electrical
service for Laura Carrievau to
accommodate the installation of a new
heating/ cooling system. The additional
cost is $4,315 and we are asking for
approval of the change order. The motion
to approve the change order was made by
Commissioner Lamb and was seconded by
Commissioner Hays. Board approved.
Some of the projects that we are
working with require the homeowner to
vacate the property during construction.
The only storage company that has given.
us a price to deliver storage trailers is
Gator Storage of Bell ($80 per month) and
we are asking permission to rent units as
needed during the construction process.
We have funds set aside in the CDBG,
budget as Temporary Relocation and the
cost is allowable for SHIP projects.
Commissioner Lamb asked and told Mr.
Edwards to make sure that the units had
insurance. The motion to approve the use
of the storage units was made by
Commissioner Johnson and was seconded
by Commissioner Hays. Board approved.
Minnie Chewning has a failed septic
system and we are asking for authorization
to use CDBG funding to have a new septic
tank installed. The estimated cost is
$4,200. Commissioner Johnson stated
that he had looked at the problem


personally. Commissioner Hunt made the
motion to table for a few days so that he
may look at the problem. Commissioner
Johnson seconded. Board Approved.
SHIP:
As reported at the last Commission
meeting, the Larry Gilbert family was given
choice of having their current house
repaired or having a smaller handicapped
accessible home being constructed and we
are requesting permission to bid the project
as SHIP Replacement Construction. The
motion to re-bid the project was made by
Commissioner Hays and was seconded by
Commissioner Hunt. Board Approved
We are requesting permission to bid
repair projects for Georgia Stubbs, Emma
Lou NesSmith, Grady Tumlin, Christopher
Landrum, Charles Pinner and Frances
Parsells.
Commissioner Lamb made the


statement that the county needed to
identify the properties available by the
county and build the SHIP houses on
them. Commissioner Hays concurred with
Commissioner Lamb and asked
Coordinator Bellot if there were any
properties available. The motion was
made for the walkthrough on the minor
projects list by Commissioner Johnson and
was seconded by Commissioner Hays.
Board approved.
Mrs. Lillian Smith appeared before the
Board stating that she had applied for help
from Mr. Edwards and had fell twice since
January and broke her shoulder and her
husband in and out of the Hospital with
cancer. She stated that they need help.
Mr. Edwards explained that a mobile home
has to have CDBG funding and if the
repairs are more than 50% of the value of
the home then the home has to be
completely replaced up to $70,000 in
costs. Mr. Edwards stated that Mrs.
Smith's job will cost well over the $70,000
limit due to elevation standards of where
she lives in Suwannee. Commissioner
Hays made certain that everyone was
aware the Board was not overlooking Mrs.
Smith's situation but were trying to come
up with a solution to her unique problem.
Mr. Edwards stressed to Mrs. Smith that if
the county traveled out side of the
guidelines for her repairs in CDBG then
they would lose funding for the CDBG
program.
Community Programs Consulting, Inc.
is not renewing our SHIP Administrative
Services contract for SHIP Program Year
2007-08. We hope that the Commission
would hire a new administrator soon to
permit us time to help the new
person/company get familiar with the Dixie
County SHIP Program. CPC would
appreciate the opportunity to continue
preparing Community Development Block
Grant applications for Dixie County and
administering those funded projects.
REX DUNN, STEINHATCHEE WATER:
Mr. Dunn appeared before the Board
asking the Board approve the GUA
document that has been written.
Commissioner Valentine stated that he
wanted to see some sort of monthly fee
spelled out in the document. Mr. Dunn
stated this level of detail did not need to be
in the GUA document. Attorney McMillan
stated the GUA document only created the
group. Commissioner Hays asked Mr.
Dunn how many board members there
would be and Mr. Dunn stated that there
would be seven total: three from Dixie
County, three from Taylor County, and one
appointed. Commissioner Hays made the
motion to approve the GUA document
pending Attorney McMillan's approval and

Miss Houghton appeared before the
Board and explained the FLGIS study.
The study shows that 47% of citizens
would rather use their own technology to
access information instead of going to a
county office. Some trends need to be
faced by government will be IFID tags on
large or expensive equipment. GIS Data
will be made available for everyone to use.
She suggested that the Board of County
Commissioners become a part of this
organization. It will give a bird's eye view
of what will be happening in the county and


this will only cost $125,00 annually.
Commissioner Johnson made the motion
to join as a county with Holly Houghton as
the representative and Commissioner Hays
seconded. Board approved.
ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY
COORDINATOR:
Coordinator Bellot appeared before the
Board and presented the financial reports
from Darlene Smith, of the Soil and Water
Conservation Office.
Coordinator Bellot stated the Health
Department had tested the water at Shired
Island some time ago and found traces of
feces. They have been testing the water to
see if the feces were human or animal and
recently the tests turned out negative for
human connection. However, there is a
high bacteria count in the water at Shired
Island and this could be a health hazard for
those with sensitive immune systems.
Coordinator Bellot stated that he had
received bids on Hollis Chewning Road,
Otis Brannin Road, Rilla Lord Road, and
the road that runs beside Randy Riels
Shop. He received bids from SCI
Construction, S&T, and Anderson
Columbia with Anderson Columbia coming
out with the lowest bids on all four jobs.
Coordinator Bellot stated that there were
some other projects that were being looked
at for the SCRAP and SCOP programs.
These projects are as follows: CR317,
346A, Jim Mikell Road, Shired Island
Road, Spillers Hi-way, Gornto Springs
Road, Veterans Road, and 351A.
Coordinator Bellot stated that he needed to
know the Board's wishes on which roads to
pick for FY 07-08. The Board agreed to do
317 and 346A as job #1, Shired Island
Road as job #2, Suwannee Road as job
#3, and Jim Mikell Road as the SCRAP
project.
Commissioner Johnson stated early in
the morning log trucks that are waiting on
Suwannee Lumber to open are sitting on
the side of 351A and breaking off the sides
of the newly paved road. He stated at the
intersection of 351A and US19 you cannot
turn onto US19 without getting into the
oncoming traffic lane and if this doesn't
stop, there will be a bad accident. He
stated that the Florida Highway Patrol
needed to be notified.
Coordinator Bellot stated he had gotten.
a letter from Horseshoe Beach about the
dredging of the canals. Commissioner
Lamb stated the Board needed to let the
Town of Horseshoe handle this.
Coordinator Bellot stated it was not right for
the town to own the streets and the county
to own the canals. Attorney McMillan
stated she would check into donating the
canals to the Town of Horseshoe.
.Coordinator Bellot stated he had a grant
for the Cross City Airport that needed
Commissioner Johnson's signature. The
grant covers surveying, boundary map,
and taxi lanes. The motion for the Board to
accept the grant was made by
Commissioner Hays and seconded by
Commissioner Hunt. Board approved.
Coordinator Bellot stated he had
advertised for qualifications for engineers
and everyone went through the proposals
yesterday ranking them. Among the
engineers were PBS&J, Darabi &
Associates, American Heritage, and Bailey,
Bishop and Lane. The firms were ranked
on Experience or the ability to become
experienced with the Design Build Method
of road construction and road/ bridge
construction in general, Staffing and
Management, Technical approach to local
needs, Familiarity or ability to become
familiar with local conditions, and reference
quality. Coordinator Bellot stated the two
highest scoring firms were Bailey, Bishop
and Lane and Darabi & Associates and
since they were present, he recommended
possibly interviewing them. Commissioner
Lamb suggested letting them do a
presentation. Dennis Davis with Darabi &
Associates stated Mr. Frank Darabi would
rather be the one that was interviewed for
the position.
Coordinator Bellot asked that while the
Board was thinking about whether or not
they wanted the firms to do a presentation
they needed to decide on the paving jobs
now while they were at this price.
Commissioner Hays made the motion to
accept the low bid of Anderson Columbia
and Commissioner Lamb seconded,
contingent on the starting point being Hollis
Chewning Road. Board approved.
Commissioner Hunt stated he would
rather the engineering firms give their
presentation now than later. The Board
agreed with Commissioner Hunt and asked
that Darabi & Associates and Bailey,
Bishop and Lane give an oral presentation.
Mr. Dennis Davis with Darabi & Associates
gave his presentation to the Board first and
then Bailey, Bishop and Lane gave a
presentation as well. After Board
deliberation the decision to hire Bailey,
Bishop and Lane was made.
Commissioner Lamb stated he would like
to see an in-house review done by the
Board every two years. The motion to hire
Bailey, Bishop and Lane and to do a
review every two years was made by
Commissioner Hunt and seconded by
Commissioner Johnson. Board approved.
LEENETTE MCMILLAN, COUNTY
ATTORNEY:
Attorney McMillan explained to the
Board that the new Industrial Park lease
applications were given to Denise Lytle in
the Commission Office for pick-up.
Everyone wanting a lease must fill this
application out and submit it to the Board.
DANA D. JOHNSON, CLERK OF
COURT:
Clerk Johnson presented to the Board a
Satisfaction of a Deferred Payment Loan
by Marion Bullard. The motion to approve
the satisfaction was made by
Commissioner Hunt and was seconded by
Commissioner Hays. Board approved.
COMMISSION ITEMS:
Commissioner Hays stated the
employee handbook needed to be


reviewed because we need a procedure
manual. Commissioner Lamb added that
Dixie was the only county that did not have
a procedure manual and he would like to
move forward with this task also.
Commissioner Lamb stated the County
parks are a popular spot to be in the
summer time and he asked that the other
members of the Board help in making sure
the parks are safe, clean, and adequate,
He also said the park attendants have
been told that all regulations will be strictly
enforced.
Commissioner Hunt echoed
Commissioner Lamb's concern with the
boat ramps at our county parks.
ADJOURN:
The motion to adjourn was made by
Commissioner Hays and was seconded by
Commissioner Johnson and adjourned at
5:10 p.m. Board approved.


Red Store Deli Opens For Business


Annette and Cecil Hysmith, owners of The Little Red Store- Deli
invite you to come tryout the Pressed Cuban Sub, you won't be
disappointed!
By Lisa Sheppard
You may know the Little Red Store for its convenience while
on the way to Horseshoe Beach or Shired Island, for a fishing trip,
to pick up some live bait. Well that has all changed. Although
they still offer some refrigerated and artificial bait for the
fishermen, Cecil and Annette Hysmith have been hard at
remodeling the Little Red Store, and making it into a deli! If you
have been hoping someone would open a specialty sandwich shop
in town, well here it is, and much more.
Mr. Cecil and Mrs. Annette operated a restaurant years ago and
have always wanted to get back into the business. They have been
in business at this location for about 5 years, and now, have finally
fine-tuned it to what they hope will be a successful new business.
The Deli offers sandwiches such as Pressed Cubans, Corned Beef,
Pastrami, and Subs of all kinds. They will put together salads
Made-To-Order, with any meats or cheeses you like. Mr. Cecil
also stated that upon a certain individuals request of a Fried
Bologna Sandwich, they would also be able to make them! No
place like the south!
Daily Lunch specials are offered on the menu for only $4.99
and include sandwich, chips or potato salad and a drink. Breakfast
specials will also be offered with homemade Biscuits and Gravy as
well as Sausage Biscuits, who could go wrong. The Hysmiths will
also provide something that you and I will surely enjoy, "Fresh
Sliced Quality Deli Meats" sold by the pound!
We wish you all the success with your new business and can't
wait to try a Pressed Cuban! Business hours are Thursday Friday
6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturday 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Closed
Sunday and Mondays. Call in your orders at 498-7347.

Legion Aires News

While there are a lot of things to think about today, let us take time to
remember one of our great national symbols, our flag.
Though the origin of Flag Day dates back to the late 19th century, its
inspiration takes us further back to 1777. On June 14th of that year, in
Philadelphia, the Continental Congress passed a resolution specifying that
the flag carry 13 stripes and 13 stars. The colors would represent hardiness
and valor (red), purity and innocence (white), and vigilance, perseverance
and justice (blue).
The concept of a specific day to annually recognize the American Flag
came 108 years later. In 1885, a Fredonia, Wisconsin schoolteacher, B.J.
Cigrand. arranged for the students in his school district to observe the
resolution on June 14th as 'Flag Birthday'. In 1889, George Balch, a
kindergarten teacher in New York City, planned similar festivities for his
school's students. In 1893, Philadelphia became the first city to celebrate
Flag Day, and in the following year, New York was the first state to
observe June 14th. After decades of expanding community observances,
President Woodrow Wilson established Flag Day on May 30, 1916.
Still many communities did not celebrate Flag Day. It wasn't until
1949, when President Harry Truman signed into an Act of Congress that
National Flag Day be observed every June 14'h. Since then the President
proclaims the commemoration yearly, and encourages all Americans in the
country to display the Stars and Stripes outside their homes and
businesses. Individual states determine how they will observe the day. The
Unites States Flag Code, as adopted by Congress, states "The flag
represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing." This is
why we should give the flag our full respect.
Please remember our troops serving in our armed forces to who the
very sight of our "grand old flag" is so very special. Many are in harms
way as I write this. Keep them and their families in your thoughts and
prayers. And, yes, say a little extra one for this great nation of ours for
which they gallantly serve.
The June 21s' meeting of Post 91 in Trenton will be an installation of
officers for the post and auxiliary. Members are encouraged to bring a
covered dish for dinner at 5:30 p.m. followed by the installation meeting at
7 p.m.
Post 149 continues to meet the first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm in


Newberry.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

Suwannee 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 from samples taken on March 27, 2007 show that our
system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts DBP5), which includes Total Trihalomethanes
(TTHMs) and total Halo Acetic Acids (HAA5s). The standard for TTHM is 80 micrograms per liter and the average level of TTHM over the last year
was 322 micrograms per liter. The standard for HAA5s is 60 micrograms per liter and the average level over the last year was 80 micrograms per liter.
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 treated water 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 trihalomethanes 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 halo acetic acids in excess of the 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 DBP levels: On February 6, 2007 we broke ground on the new Water Treatment Plant (WTP) The plant
is scheduled for completion in January 2008. The treatment process at the new WTP will be different than the current WTP and will dramatically
reduce the level of DBP in our drinking water. With the new WTP our water will be within the acceptable limits specified for DBP. At this time we are
using as small a concentration of treatment products as possible and flushing the lines bimonthly to help reduce the level of DBP.
We anticipate resolving the problem within the time frame: Fourth quarter of 2007 to the first quarter of 2008.
For more information, please contact Tony Johns, at this phone number: (352) 542-7570.
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.
This notice is being sent to you by The Suwannee Water & Sewer District
State Public Water System ID# 2151140
Date distributed: 06/14/2007

Ronald McDonald
Visits The Dixie County Library


Ronald McDonald reading to children
at the Dixie County Library
: There was a large turnout for the Library's Summer Youth
program this past Wednesday morning. The Dixie County Library
In conjunction with Three Rivers Regional Library System is.
Sponsoring summer programs to encourage children and parents to
continue to read over the summer and ultimately become life-long
readers!
- Ronald McDonald was the drawing attraction at this week's
program. During "Book time with Ronald", Ronald performed
Magic tricks with a fine volunteer assistant, Miss' Jana (Kitty)
Valentine, read a book, titled, If the Dinosaurs Came Back, which
ll the children loved, and drew on his magic drawing board, with
helpers Chase, Brandon and Megan. They drew a smiley face on
the board, which came to life and talked to Ronald and the
Children, his name we found out, was ART!
Ronald stressed three rules of reading to the children: First,
make sure your hands are clean before handling books, that way
they stay in good condition, second, use proper book-marks when
havingg your place so that the books are not damaged (no dog ears
-;r lying books face down with them open) and finally third, READ
WITH EXCITEMENT! Ronald also stressed summertime safety
while enjoying things outdoors, such as swimming, bicycling,
:etc...
. Each child that attended the event were given Ronald Reading
:angers Certificates, one free coupon for a Happy Meal at
:McDonald's, and Ronald McDonald's Reading Challenge Card.
'The challenge card encourages the child to come back to the
library regularly to check out and read new books, as their card is
stamped each visit. After completing the reading challenge, the
child is rewarded with a free Hamburger or Cheeseburger from
McDonald's!
Parents, don't let your children miss all the fun this summer!
Listed below are more wonderful dates for enhanced learning
opportunities for you and your children!
