Scallop Season Opens July 1
By Briar Keathley
Grab your mask and snorkel because it's that time of year
again-bay scallop open harvest season! From July 1 until
September 10, recreational scallopers can hit the grass beds in
search of the tasty bivalves, which, according to a recent preseason
survey, should be more abundant than last year.
"It's looking much better than last year," said Dr. Bill Arnold
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Institute. "There won't be
scallops everywhere, but if you work hard at it, you'll find some."
Locally, the Dixie/Taylor coastline is a prime scalloping
location, however, coastal waters from the Pasco/Hernando
County line all the way to Mexico Beach will be open to
harvesting.
Before setting out to harvest though, there are a few things to
know-how to scallop successfully and more importantly, legally.
All harvesters must first obtain a recreational saltwater fishing
license prior to harvesting. An annual license for Floridians is n
$13.50, a seven-day license for visitors is $16.50 and a three-day -
license is $6.50. The tax collector's office sells licenses, as do
many marinas and bait-and-tackle shops.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission,
scallop harvesting may be done strictly for recreational purposes
only. Commercial harvesting some 30 years ago contributed to a
depleted bay scallop population, which is now sustained through
successful restocking programs and strict harvesting regulations. Bay scallop open harvest season begins this Sunday, July 1, and
During the open season, harvesters are limited to two gallons runs through September 10. A preseason survey found that this
of whole bay scallops in the shell, or one pint of bay scallop meat should be a much better year for harvesters than last year.
per day. In addition, scallopers may possess no more than. 10
gallons of whole bay scallops in the shell, or 1/2 gallon of bay scallop meat, aboard any vessel at any time.
Arnold pointed out that scallopers should only collect scallops measuring at least two inches in diameter. The smaller ones should be
left alone so that they can fully mature.
Arnold added that because bay scallop season occurs prior to the scallops' spawning season, "don't take everything, because if there
isn't a good spawning season there won't be many scallops next year."
Bay scallops may be harvested only by hand or with a landing or dip net.
"Some people don't like using their hands so they use a net," said Susie Johns of Sea Hag marina, Steinhatchee.
She explained that whatever method you choose, scalloping is relatively easy, not to mention fun. You just need the right gear-
mask and snorkel to help you spot the scallops on the bottom of the grass beds, fins or water shoes, a mesh bag to put your bounty in, a
dip net if you don't want to use your hands to scoop up the scallops, a diver-down flag if snorkeling, and a cooler of ice to keep the
scallops fresh. Most marinas and bait-and-tackle shops in Steinhatchee sell these items.
Once you've got all the scalloping necessities, you simply need to find the scallops. Scallops can be found in anywhere from two to
eight feet of water, primarily in grass beds. See SCALLOPS, Pg. 5


City Cracking Down

On Handicap Parking

Violators: $68.50 Fine
Due to recent complaints from citizens, the Cross City Police
Department is cracking down on handicap parking violators.
"People (who do not have a disabled parking permit) are
parking in handicap parking spots at the post office or the grocery
store just because it's convenient," said Police Chief Wesley Jones.
While it may be convenient for them, it's not convenient for the
people who have a valid disabled parking permit and truly need to
use those spaces to park.
Under Florida Statute 316.1955, it is unlawful for any person to
stop, stand, or park a vehicle within, or to obstruct, any such
specially designated and marked handicap parking space, unless

Long live the Queen!
I'm wondering if England's Queen Elizabeth II might have
picked up a little of the American Spirit (of '76) on her recent visit.
I say this because Her Majesty did something about as provocative
as the Boston Tea Party when she bestowed knighthood on Salman
Rushdie, an author who happens to be the number one man on the
Islamic radical faction's hit list.
Rushdie has had a hefty price on his head since 1988, when he
published a book entitled, The Satanic Verses. I haven't read it, but
I understand that it treats the Prophet Mohammed (or Muhammad,
or whatever) in a blatantly disrespectful manner. This caused the
mullahs to order his assassination, preferably by one of the peaceful
Islamic faith, but indications were that even an infidel bounty
hunter could cash in at a reduced rate.
Rushdie has since been avoiding social events hosted by anyone
with an Arab-sounding name, or if neither pork nor wine were on
the menu. Needless to say, his whereabouts remain classified and
he has an unlisted phone number. Call him paranoid if you choose,
but one might consider these and a variety of other precautions as
nothing more than common sense.
Needless to say, Rushdie's knighthood has caused an uproar in
the Islamic world-not that it takes all that much to cause an
uproar in the Islamic world. A cartoon is sufficient to bring about
rioting in the streets, burnings in effigy and desecration of flags.
("Mooning," a popular form of insult in some Far Eastern cultures
and on American college campuses, apparently hasn't caught on in
the Islamic world.)
Conferring knighthood on a "blasphemer" takes things to a
whole new level, of course. Not only is it a singular honor bestowed
upon someone whom Muslims are under orders to despise, it
conjures up recollections of 11th Century English knights riding
off to the Holy Land to rid the region of the Islamic invaders.
Western Civilization still hasn't been forgiven for that affront to
Allah's objectives. Talk about holding a grudge!
So, now the Queen of England bestows knighthood upon the
most wanted man on the ayatollahs' feculence roster, providing
Salman Rushdie a place of honor at the same Round Table at
which sat the Crusaders as they planned their strategy for ousting
the camel-riding heathen from the Holy Land. Not since
Shakespeare's Hamlet has vengeance been carried out with such
classic determination.
Vengeance, You say? What on earth could the Queen possibly
have been avenging by knighting an author who offended Islam?
Consider: England has a significant Muslim population, and
it's growing. They've staged protests and riots, and last year a
group of them were apprehended plotting to blow -up some
commercial airliners headed for America, for which the British
government is to be commended. However, for the most part
they've been no more effective in dealing with militant Islam lih: ii
our own government has in securing our southern border,
It's been a long time since the British Royal Family ran the
country. Nowadays, they just take care of the ceremonial stuff,
while the elected members of Parliament do the grunt work. But it
looks like Queen Elizabeth II still has the stuff of which monarchs
were once made. After all, bestowing kniuhilhl on Salman
Rushdie reflects the .ititude the British had toward Nazi Germany
65 years ago; and not until we all start treating militant Islam
accordingly will we be able to deal effectively with the threat this
faction poses to Western Civilization.

Deputy Hart being presented a Gold Medal


Dixie County Deputy Sheriff C.P. Hart competed in the Police
and Fire Games in Sarasota, Florida as a representative of the
Dixie County Sheriffs Office and Sheriff Dewey Hatcher on
June 19th and 20th. Deputy Hart won a Gold Medal in the Martial
Arts / Karate (Kata-Forms) division on Tuesday the 19th.
Kata is one of the oldest and most recognized events in Martial
Arts, it is a series of fighting moves, punches, kicks and stances.
The Participant is judged on the speed, intensity-strength of the
moves, and how well every move is performed.
On the 20th Deputy Hart participated in the Three Gun Match.
" I only wished I would have practiced my shooting as much as I
practiced my martial arts training." The three-gun match consisted
of shooting the deputy's tactical rifle, shotgun, and service handgun
at targets of various distances and sizes. Hitting the targets wasn't
the problem it was the specific order of shooting, the manner of
how the weapons were made safe and positioned afterwards.
Simple mistake prove costly when competing against such high
caliber shooters.
A very special Thank You to Sheriff Dewey Hatcher for giving
me the opportunity to participate in the Police and Fire Games and
to my shift supervisors Major Pinner, Major Miller, and Captain
Reed who also went above and beyond to a-,sist me with imy ,being
able to participate in the games. Many thanks to my Martial Arts
Instructor, Larry Taylor and Classmates at the Do-Jang who
worked tirelessly to prepare me for the Karate events. Last but
defiantly not least my family for putting up with my work
schedules, my training regime, and above all with me.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007


INJURED CHILD
Cont. From Pg. 1
Claflin was sitting on the left side of the boat between the bow
and the console, behind Taylor, who was on a folding chair on the
bow of the vessel. A 3-foot sturgeon jumped out of the river,
striking Taylor and Clafin. Taylor suffered a leg fracture and
Clafin sustained bruises and cuts.
Taylor was transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville by
emergency medical services personnel.
The sturgeon jumped back into the water.
"This is the third confirmed sturgeon strike of 2007," said
Maj. Bruce Hamlin, regional commander for FWC's North
Central Region, based in Lake City. "Four people have been
injured. That's four too many."
The major went on to say the FWC is putting increased
emphasis on the public awareness campaign about the sturgeon in
the Suwannee.
"We have been actively engaging the public on the dangers of
these jumping sturgeon for more than a year. We had 10 people
injured last year, and we've had four people injured this year.
FWC has placed warning signs at all the boat ramps along the
river, and we are distributing decals, warning boaters of the
jumping sturgeon and to go slow while boating on the
Suwannee," Hamlin said.
"However, we are looking to do more. We plan to put new
signs on the river at boat docks and businesses so the boating
publicc can see the signs while they're on the water," Hamlin said.
'We're interested in talking with homeowners on the Suwannee
liver who would be willing to place a sturgeon warning sign on
heir docks.
,a"We are also looking for suggestions from the public as to
i w we can make this campaign even more effective. If anyone
ids an idea how we can get the word out to those folks recreating
)-the Suwannee River, we'd like to hear it," Hamlin said.
The public can send in ideas via e-mail to
caren.parker@MyFWC.com or to Florida Fish and Wildlife
conservationn Commission, 3377 E. U.S. Hwy. 90, Lake City, FL
12055: Folks with ideas also can call the FWC regional office at
386) 758-0525.

SCALLOPS Cont. From Pg. 1
"'If you don't have your own boat, which is the best way to get
a the grass beds, there are many charter boats and guides available
of hire in Steinhatchee. Be sure to make reservations now because
nany will be booked the entire season.
Talking with locals in Steinhatchee, most scallopers run out the
iteinhatchee channel to the Gulf, or at least to marker nine, and
hep go either north or south for several miles until the inshore
waters become clear. Favorite spots include six miles north (Big
3rassv Island), four to five miles south (Rocky Creek) and six to
even miles south (Pepperfish Keys).
Arnold and a team of divers conducted their preseason survey
Lt 20 random spots from Pepperfish Keys to Keaton Beach. The
livers dove along 300-meter long transects counting scallops and,
fi' average, counted 37 scallops per transect. Last year, they
huntedd, on average, only about 11 scallops per transect.
-""That's about three and a half times more than last year,"
krnold said.
g;;As for the reason, "It's the vagaries of nature," he said.
Certain factors such as bad weather can affect the scallop'
populationn by sweeping the scallop larva out to sea before they.
fullyy develop. Scallopers can also affect the population by not
idcering to the FWC regulations.
"Those su Ict regulations are in place for a reason," Arnold said.
'It's important to follow them because it can affect next year's
scallop season."

Row To Clean A Scallop:
', With the dark side of the scallop shell up, hinge facing away
rTom you, insert a scallop knife blade or sharpened spoon between
he top and bottom shells from the right and cut away the muscle at
.sg attachment to the top shell. Remove the top shell and discard.
Remove the dark innards by gently scraping from hinge to front
with a spoon or scallop knife. The innards will peel cleanly from
he muscle if you carefully scrape over the muscle from hinge to
front, pinching the innards to the knife or spoon with your thumb
is you pass over the cut surface of the muscle. This will leave the
Alan muscle attached to the bottom shell.
Now simply scrape the scallop muscle from the bottom shell.

FWC Nixes Many Alligator Management
Proposals, Approves Others
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) decided Wednesday not to open the door to allowing
homeowners to dispose of small nuisance alligators on their own.
Rather, they decided to continue the requirement that people
contact the FWC, and the agency will dispatch nuisance alligator
trappers to remove the reptiles.
FWC Commissioners, meeting in a two-day session in
Melbourne, also turned thumbs down to a proposal to issue
statewide permits to recreational alligator hunters and agreed to
continue issuing countywide permits.
They also decided not to allow daytime recreational alligator
hunting or the use of small-caliber handguns to dispatch
alligators.
On the other hand, Commissioners did approve, in concept, an
array of new alligator management provisions, including use of
artificial lures to reel in alligators during statewide harvests and
provisions to streamline requirements of the Private Lands
Alligator Management Program.
For instance, Commissioners approved removing the 6- to 9-
foot closed slot limit on alligators taken in the FWC's Private
Lands Alligator Management Program and to pursue broader
public awareness regarding living peacefully with alligators.
Based on the Commissioners' guidance, FWC staff will
prepare appropriate rule proposals for further consideration in
future Commission meetings.

Central Baptist

Church News
Wednesday evening services
are increasingly blessed with
Brother David bringing our study
to us based on the book, "A
Purpose Driven Life."
Wednesday Bible Study begins at
7:00 p.m.
Saturday evening we hosted
the monthly community sing at
Central and had a bigger turnout
than even last month. We enjoyed
a host of singers and musicians,
with a very special presentation
from 13 year-old Caleb Lamb,
grandson of Mrs. MaryAnn
McCall. Caleb lives in Arkansas
but is here visiting his grandma.
Sunday services began with an
acknowledgement and proud
congratulations to Brother Jim
Barbas and Mrs. Margaret Barbas,
married a noteworthy 51 years!
Brother David brought us a
message from God on "The Prayer
of a Righteous Man" James 5:16-
20. Many people were moved at
hearing this message on prayer.
We learned there are 7 truths to
prayer.


1) You must have a pure
heart- Psalms 66:18
2) You must have a forgiving
spirit- I Peter 3:7 Mark 11:25
3) You must have faith and
believe- Heb 11:6
4) You must have the right
motive- James 4:3
5) You must pray in God's
will I John 5:14
6) You must pray in Jesus
name- John 14: 13-14 and finally
7)You must pray in the spirit-
I John 1:9
If you use this guide in your
prayer life, you will definitely see
a difference. Confess your sins,
stay in fellowship, be obedient,
and pray to God in Jesus name!
We continued traveling down
the Roman Road Sunday evening,
with Brother David bringing the
lesson to us from Romans 9: 30-33
"God's Will & Man's Will".
After services, we had our
monthly birthday social combined
with a shower for Greg &
Samantha Shepard's newest
addition to their family, Andrew.
Remember the many who
need prayer at this time, especially


Wind Of The Spirit Church News
What a mighty God we serve, last Sunday the Wind of the
Spirit was blowing. God moved mightily. There were people slain
in the Spirit all over the place. Some was healed, plenty filled,
lives changed by the spoken words from the Lord. The glory of
God was so awesome.
It's time for God's Children to take back what the devil has
stole from us whatever it may be; your peace, joy or health, wealth
or the call God has placed on your life to be a preacher, teacher a
singer, a writer. Yes, just week before last, the pastor called me up
and by the Spirit of the Lord and said catch the pen and don't lay it
down again! I had this ministry a long time ago and God didn't
take my talent, I had laid it down. So, I caught the pen and I am
doing what God called me to do. What has God called you to do?
Well what is standing in your way? So now stir up those gifts.
Whatever God calls us to doe he always equips us. Press toward
the mark for the prize of the high calling of God. (Read Matthew
25:23) If we are faithful in a few things.that God will make us a
ruler over many things.
Remember until next week God loves you and so do we at
Wind of the Spirit, come join us and see what God is doing.

The Word Made Flesh
The Name Of The Beast
Continued from last week.
These tutors and governors walk
after the FLESH and not after the
SPIRIT. They take Jesus Christ
out of the church. They take the
power of His NAME out of the
CHURPCH (people), and teach all
the power and glory of the church,
was only given in the reign of the
first church. It is not for us in this
age. They take the body of people
that is supposed to be the Lord's
BODY and "ADD" another name
to the body in the place of Jesus
Christ. They take the name of
what they call their organized
group and use it in the place of the
name of Jesus Christ. They take
the name of what they call their
organized group and use it in the
place of the name of Jesus Christ.
They take the name of what they
call their organized group and use
it in the place of the name of Jesus
Christ. Watch the beast working
in man to perform his unrighteous
will. Watch the beast coming in
the name of Jesus Christ and
deceiving God's blessed little
lambs and sheep. This is what
happened when the true church
fell away after it came out of
Jerusalem. Now we can see why
the "Beast" calls himself Jesus
Christ "The Bride" or "Body of
Christ". THE MARK OF THE
BEAST is our carnal nature that
has been in us since birth, only the
coming of Jesus Christ and His
grace can change this Adamic
nature. He must prevail in the life
of each Christian, until the beast
mind is changed to the MIND of
CHRIST." Read 1 Corinthians
2:15-16.) You see THE MARK,
THE NUMBER, AND THE
NAME. The power of Jesus'
name is diminishing out of the
people, because the BEAST has
taken it. The beast is using it.
The carnal mind hath prevailed
over God's people. As the great
Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatian
Church, "0 foolish Galatians, who
hath be witched you, that ye
should not obey the truth, before
whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been
evidently set forth, crucified
among you?" (Galatians 3:1)
Then He said, "my little children,
of whom I travail in birth again
until Christ be formed in you."
(Galatians 4:19) May the word of
truth prevail until the TRUE
CHURCH rises up out of the
waters of the BEAST. (Read Rev.
13:1-10.) What are these waters?
Revelation 17:15 says, "...The
waters which thou sawest, where
the whore sittith, are peoples, and
multitudes, and nations and
tongues." This beast that is in
these WATERS where the whore
sits, is the same that made war
with the saints and overcame them
(Rev. 13:7).

Lydia Baptist Church News
Lydia was buzzing with excitement last Sunday as we prepared
for our Vacation Bible School. Our young people presented a full-
length hilarious drama that praised and glorified God, ending with
a young woman's acceptance of Jesus as her Saviour. We are
richly blessed with such tremendous talent in our church youth,
and we thank them and their director, Christie Roberts, for all their
dedication and hard work.
The Holy Spirit continued to bless us mightily on Sunday
evening as we enjoyed our Monthly "sing", and were honored with
several visitors and singers.
Pastor. Wayne Allen's message from Hebrews 6:17, 18
reminded us that God is constant; God does not change. We, as
imperfect humans, do change. We, as imperfect humans, do
change. So why can't we change for the better, to improve our
spiritual life? We must make the effort to grow spiritually. God
,annot be improved upon, but God can improve us if we seek Him.
We cannot comprehend the magnitude of God, but if we follow
Hisway, the right way, and stop living in a manner that is contrary
to God's wishes, then we will be blessed with his boundless love.
Our Vacation Bible School continues until June 29th, and on
Friday, we will have a rodeo at noon.
Remember, at Lydia, everybody is somebody, and Christ is
everything.

ones who were not out of the
hospitals, the bereaved and the

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3 "Heaven And Hell"
Continued from last week. In the spinrtual world which is above the
natural world, there are also atinospheres, is e\ ident from the light and
heal there, which before the eves, and senses of the angels appear similar
to the light and heat before the eyes and senses of man; and angels are
spiritual, but men are natural, and there cannot possibly be any light and
heat with their differences with out atmospheres. That there are also
spiritual atmospheres is e\ dent from many appearances in the spiritual
world, as from the appearances of colors there, of meteors, of clouds both
thin and thick, of w inds, of gravities, pressures, and consequent
consistencies, which although they appear enutirely similar to such things
as arein the natural world, nevertheless, the.' are spiritual and not natural;
although before the angels, because they are spiritual, they spear similar.
That there are spiritual atmospheres is evident especially from the
respiration of angels and spirit Angels and spirits breathe in like manner
as men in the world; but angels breathe from their atmospheres, and men
from theirs. The arigels in the celestial kingdom breathe from their
atmosphere, which is more pure, but the angel. of the spiritual kingdom
breathe from their atmosphere, which is less pure. A spirit or an angel
even so that IA'knowt''hotheritse than thaet his is a man of the world. He
has a similar face and a similar body, and in the face similar eyes, nostrils,
ears, lips, mouth and similar hair; and in the body also a similar breast,
abdomen, loins, hands and feet, and also similar organs of generation; in a
word, he is'a ran ifih'remal form altogether like man of the world. He


has similar lungs, because he breathes, arid he has a similar heart, because
it pulsates. The other interior viscera of the body are also similar, because
there are societies int.neyen, vs*ich equally correspond to these viscera.
There is likewise ruddiness in the face, hands, arms and body as if from
blood in the arteries and veins. There are also similar fibers, nerves, and
muscles, because in like manner a spirit moves his limbs like a man in the
world. Moreover, he has similar'sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. He
also has similar speech and singing; he has also a similar power of
imagination, thought, intellect, and will, also affection and cupidity. In a
word, an angel or a spirit is so similar to a man of the world, that he
himself knows no otherwise than that he is a man of the world. Their
garments also are similar to the garments of men; they have tunics,
mantles, breeches, stockings, shoes, caps, and undergarments like those in
the world, with some difference as to colors, especially of the tunics. The
reason is, because colors signify the appearances of truth from good, and
garments signify truth, and hence the clothing of the understanding. Love
You ..

reminding Sly Fox of the safety rules when it came to trains and
train tracks. After the video, the children were allowed to ask
questions and also tell what they had learned from the video.
Door prizes were given again as names were drawn. Activity
books and a small grab bag of goodies were awarded to each child
in attendance.
Hats off to our library system, and the wonderful people who
enjoy working there and serving you! Our children are so
fortunate to have this educational program this summer. Thank
you Dixie County Library, Three Rivers Regional, and all the local
business' that have made all this possible.

CFO Sink To State Employees:
Maximize State Bonus By
Investing In Deferred Comp
TALLAHASSEE- Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink
today unveiled a new initiative that gives state employees a way
to maximize their annual bonus by investing it in the State of
Florida Deferred Compensation Plan. Administered by the
Department of Financial Services, the Deferred Compensation
plan is an individual tax-deferred retirement vehicle funded with
employee contributions.
State employees choosing to participate will be able to invest
as much as $897 in their own personal retirement account as
opposed to receiving their bonus as a lump'sum payment of
approximately $673.
"As the state's Chief Financial Officer, part of my job is to
help promote smart financial moves for Floridians," said CFO
Sink, who runs the department. "By investing their bonus in a
retirement account, state employees have the opportunity to put
an additional $200 to work for them instead of the government."
In the 2007 General Appropriations Act, the Legislature
provided for $1,000 bonuses for all full-time state employees, to
be paid November 7, 2007. Until this year, employees were
forced to receive bonuses as lump-sum payments, subject to 20
percent federal taxes and Social Security and Medicare taxes.
After all the taxes are deducted, most state employees will be left
with a net check of only $673.
However, state employees taking advantage of the opportunity
to invest their bonus will defer having to pay the 20 percent
federal government tax and will receive as much as $897 to invest 0
in a retirement account. Eligible state employees can invest all or
part of their bonus and will receive information about this new
initiative from the state's deferred compensation program in early
July.
The deferred compensation program allows state employees to
delay, or "defer," receiving a portion of their income until a later
date and was established by the state under section 457(b) of the
Internal Revenue Code. Deferred compensation participants must
notify the program of their choice by September 1, 2007. State
employees who are not currently participants in the state's
deferred compensation plan will also have the ability to
participate if they join the program by August 15, 2007.
Participants are able to choose from six investment companies
screened by the state to manage their assets. For more
information about the state's deferred compensation program,
please visit www.mvfloridadeferredcomp.com.

Suwannee River Shrine Club Holds

Annual Tournament


The Buddy Show
by Buddy Marktin

Not many sports flicks

made AFI Top 100 list


It's summertime, the
living' is easy, the fish
are jumpin' and we're
talking movies here on
the first full weekend
of the solstice.
L a s t
week, the American
Film Institute re-
ranked its Top 100
movies and, of course,
Citizen Kane was No.


1 again. No newspaper guy is going to knock that choice.
Sports movies, however got only a few props, with the
boxing movie about Jake LaMotta's life, Raging Bull, moving up
to No. 4.
Then you had to move-all the way down to No. 57
before Rocky surfaced, and never mind making the comparison.
Any resemblance ends after the boxing theme.
And that was it for sports flicks.
You may be surprised to know that Dr. Strangeglove
(No. 39), The Philadelphia Story (44th), Raiders of the Lost Ark
(66) and Yankee Doodle Dandee (98) were not about sports teams
or figures.
Maybe I'm no film critique, but somewhere in the
mix I'd have to find a place on my list for Field of Dreams,
Hoosiers, The Natural and Jerry Maguire four of my favorites.
If you've got your list of Top 5 or 10 best sports
movies, send them to me at bmartin@sun-herald.com.
Quick Jump Starts
1. We didn't know whether to cry, laugh, boo or cheer when
Sammy Sosa launched home run No. 600 last week.
2. I agree with the ESPN pundit who predicted that when their
careers are over, Alex Rodriquez will wind up with more career
homers than Barry Bonds.
3. Odd, isn't it, that ex- Florida teammates Joakim Noah and Al
Horford' wind up competing for the affections of the Atlanta
Hawks for whom they both worked out, hoping to be the No. 3.
pick in the NBA lottery.
4. All the talk about four starters from the Gator national
champions being drafted and yet the SEC 3-point shooting record
holder, Lee Humphrey, may have to go abroad to play pro
basketball.
5. I'm thinking that LeBron James' son and Tiger Woods'
daughter will both be playing Duke basketball in 2026 for the
.men's team.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is reportedly one of the key
figures in the plans for the new professional United Football

there for an All-American Football League featuring franchises

Honoring A Friend
It was my privilege and honor Friday in St. Louis to present my
late friend Van McKenzie as the posthumous winner of sports
journalism's highest honor, the Red Smith Award, given by his
Associated Press Sports Editor peers. In dinner table discussions
in an authentic Italian restaurant on "The Hill," several of us
decided if there was a Mt. Rushmore of modern sports editors,
McKenzie would be on it. He died in January while still
orchestrating the Orlando Sentinel sports section from home and
was of the giants of our industry. He crafted award winning
sections at the Sentinel, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, New York
Daily News, St. Petersburg Times, Florida Today, Ocala Star-
Banner and the National Sports Daily. The influence of this bold,
innovative editor is still felt today in sports departments around
the country, many of which have emulated some of his practices
and concepts including the Charlotte Sun. He died in January.
There will never be another one like Van.

DIXIE COUNTY ADVOCATE, CROSS CITY, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007


2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report For The Suwannee Water & Sewer District


We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services
we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand
the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality
of your water. Our water source is drawn ground water from wells. The wells draw water from the Floridan aquifer, Our treatment processes
include: chemical precipitation of iron and manganese via pellet reactors, followed by filtration and chlorine disinfection.
In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment oh our system and a search of the data sources
indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the DEP Source Water Assessment and
Protection Program website:
www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please
contact Mr. Jim Brown, Chairman of Suwannee Water & Sewer District at (352) 542-7570. We encourage our valued customers to be
informed about their water utility.
Suwannee Water & Sewer District routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and
regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31,
2006. Data obtained before January 1, 2006 and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and
regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following
definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the
MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to
health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must
follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected
risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the water sample,
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (peg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

We constantly monitor for various contaminants in the water supply to meet all regulatory requirements.
Our water system was in violation of federal and state water quality standards for Haloacetic acids and
Total Trihalomethanes from 1/2006 through 12/2006. The levels of both contaminants are shown in the
Test Results Table. Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over
many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. 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 systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Alsp, during the month of October 2006 our system was in violation of federal and state water quality
standards for total coliform bacteria and during November 2006 for E.coli. Coliforms are bacteria that are
naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful bacteria
may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential
problems. Fecal coliforms and E.coli are bacteria whose presence indicates that the water may be
contaminated with human or animal wastes. Microbes in these wastes can cause short-term effects, such
as diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for
infants, young children, some of the elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems. In
both cases follow-up samples were taken immediately and indicated the contaminants were no longer
present.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds,
reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up
substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment
plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from
urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production,
mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban
stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-
products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations,
urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or,be the result of oil and gas
production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount
of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same
protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of
some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling
the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.
Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have
undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly,
and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking
water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of
infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Suwannee Water and Sewer District would like you to understand the efforts we make to
continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to
insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided,
please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

grand document to provide for our
future. Brave men and women
have died defending our way of
life throughout the world because
we know the importance of
freedom. Freedom is not free.
I am really gratified to hear
comments from those who read
our newsletter. I have received
some very favorable comments
and it encourages me to continue
with this column. Unfortunately,
some papers do not publish this
article or only print it monthly. I
guess I don't quite understand
their point of view. How can
anyone deny news to our
veterans? I'll leave this topic for
your pondering and move on to
greater news.
On June 21", Post 91 installed
new officers for the legion and
auxiliary. 4"' District Commander
Jim Ramos installed Woodrow
DeMoure as Commander of Post
91 and those other officers
present.
Installation of the Unit 91
President, Debra Ward and her
officers was conducted by 4'h
District Auxiliary President Peggy
Hearlson. Both Commander
Ramos and President Hearlson
encouraged members to stay
active and build active
membership. Both Unit 91
Auxiliary and Post 91 Legion
members are encouraged to
become active and assist this great
organization.
On Saturday, June 301h (Mark
your calendars!) Commander
Ramos will visit Post 91 to
provide Legion new officer
training. This training is for any
officer of the post and available to
any post member who would like
to get more involved. Training
starts at 9:00 a.m. so come a little
early for coffee and doughnuts so
we can get the program started on
time.

This 4"' of July the post will
have a good old fashioned picnic
at the post home from 10:00 a.m.
until 2:00 p.m. All members are
welcomed to come out and enjoy
some music from a local band and
catch up on some visiting with
other veterans in the
neighborhood. I understand that a
nice lunch will be prepared with
plenty of food for a $5.00
donation per plate. With the 4th
being on a Wednesday this year
we figured it would be a great way
to celebrate our independence with
one another as most folks
probably will use the weekend
before or after to go out 'of town.
So, we hope to have a good crowd
and an enjoyable day. It would be
helpful to contact President Debra
Ward at 463-7721 in advance so
we can get an idea for our
headcount.

The Florida Department of the
American Legion and Auxiliary
will conduct their annual
Constitutional Conference in
Orlando July 5-8. Both Post and
Unit 91 are sending delegates to
represent us. We look forward to
our new year ahead and hope that
other veterans in the area will
come out to work with us this
year.

Unit 91 meets the second
Thursday of the month at 6:00
p.m. in Trenton. Post 91 Legion
meets the third Thursday of the
month at 7:00 p.m. in Trenton.
Post 149 Legion meets the first
Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.
in Newberry. For God and
Country, Major Stroupe, Service
Officer, Post 91


New Rules For

Red-Eared

Slider Take

Effect July 1
Beginning July 1, people no
longer may purchase red-eared
sliders -- common pet store turtles.
A new rule passed by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) prohibits
selling the species. However,
anyone who already has a red-
eared slider may keep it, under the
new rule.
"This exemption was included
to allow owners of red-eared
sliders to keep their turtles and
discourage them from releasing
this nonnative species into the
wild," said Scott Hardin, FWC
exotic species coordinator. "We
want to encourage people to
protect our native turtles. Red-
eared slider turtles interbreed with
Florida's native yellow-bellied
sliders."
Red-eared sliders already in
captivity will not be allowed to
breed, so any offspring will have
to be surrendered to certified red-
eared slider adopters or dealers, or
euthanized.
People still can buy and sell
albino red-eared sliders and others
with unusual color variations,
often known as pastels.
"These colorful varieties are


more expensive and unlikely to be
released," Hardin said.
Dealers can apply for permits to
import red-eared sliders to ship
out of state or sell to permitted
turtle dealers or breeders in
Florida, but imported red-eared
sliders may not be sold as pets in
this state.
FWC will issue permits to
qualified research institutions and
exhibitors to possess red-eared
sliders.
The new rule also requires a
solid fence or planking buried at
least 6 inches under the ground for
red-eared sliders kept outside.
Owners of pet red-eared sliders
may not acquire additional
specimens, and if their turtles
reproduce, they should destroy all
eggs before they hatch.
FWC is working to establish a
pet adoption network for
nonnative fish and wildlife,
including red-eared sliders. If you
have questions about your pet red-
eared slider or are interested in
becoming a certified adopter of
unwanted nonnative pets, contact
Jenny Novak at (850) 926-0128.


Happiness is a butterfly
which, when pursued, is
always beyond our
grasp, but if you will sit
down quietly, may alight
upon you.

FWC Seeks Input On

Peregrine Falcon Status
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(tWC) is asking the public for information and data on the
biological status of the peregrine falcon until the end of July.
The Commission is requesting specific information about
population size and trends, distribution and range, threats to the
species, published population viability models, and specific
S:".' i of the species' life history that may influence its status.
[, The request for information is part of the first phase of a two-
gtiase process the FWC uses to classify imperiled species.
P,.ntl.i's three imperiled classifications are endangered,
th reatened and species of special concern.
During its June meeting, the Commission established a
biological review panel to evaluate the bird's current endangered
species status. Staff will present the panel's biological
assessment at a future FWC meeting with Commissioners making
the final listing determination.
Local, county, state and federal agencies, stakeholders and the
public may submit written comments to: Dr. James A. Rodgers
Jr', Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 4005 S.
Main St., Gainesville, FL 32601 or by e-mail to

Bronson Urges People To Prepare For
Potential Mosquito Explosion
TALLAHASSEE The drought plaguing Florida has had one benefit:
a significant drop in the mosquito population that is usually seen this
time of year. But Flbrida Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson is urging residents to prepare for that to
change. As soon as the normal rain patterns return, Florida is likely to
see a mosquito population explosion.
The lack of water has prevented eggs from hatching. But mosquito
eggs from certain species can be very resilient, lying in wait for the next
heavy rain for up to several years. When the wet weather arrives, all the
eggs hatch at once, creating a huge increase in the number of pesky pests.
Bronson says people need to keep that in mind and be ready for a
possible onslaught of mosquitoes and with them the potential for
mosquito-borne illnesses.
The Commissioner is urging horse owners to make sure that their
animals are vaccinated against two of the diseases -- West Nile Virus
(WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).
"So far there this year there have been no reports of human cases of
mosquito-borne illnesses in Florida and we've had five EEE cases in
horses compared with a high of 207 cases in 2003," Bronson said. "We
haven't seen any West Nile cases either and I hope with proper
protections we can continue this trend."
In addition to WNV and EEE, mosquitoes can transmit St. Louis
Encephalitis and malaria.
Floridians and visitors can protect themselves against mosquito borne
disease by taking common-sense steps, including:
-- Limit time outside during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most
active.
-- Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants to cover skin and reduce the
chance of being bitten.
-- Eliminate standing water in yards, such as in birdbaths, kiddie pools,
old tires and other receptacles. Stagnant water is an excellent breeding
ground for mosquitoes.
-- Use insect repellent that contains DEET, which is an effective
repellent.
Horse owners are also urged to check with their veterinarian to make
sure that their animals have received current vaccinations against WNV
and EEE, and that these shots are kept up to date.
"Florida's mosquito control districts have done a tremendous sjob with
ongoing monitoring of mosquito populations and taking action when
necessary," Bronson said. "But ultimately, it is up to people to take steps
to protect themselves and their animals from mosquito-borne diseases."
Across Florida, there are 56 mosquito control districts that routinely
conduct proactive mosquito surveillance with specific and effective
research. They have improved methods of controlling mosquitoes,
improved identification of mosquito species that transmit disease,
established procedures for the early detection of new mosquitoes, and
researched environmental factors that make mosquito disease outbreaks
more likely.
' For more information on mosquito-borne diseases and prevention,
consumers can call the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services at 1-800-HELP-FLA (435-7352), or visit the department's web
site at http://www.doacs.state.fl.us. Information on the subject also is
available at the Florida Department of Health's web site at

The Florida Department of Health Recognizes
June 27 National HIV Testing Day
Approximately 125,000 Floridians Infected With HIV/AIDS


TALLAHASSEE-- The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) joins
community partners statewide in recognizing
June 27, 2007 as National HIV Testing Day,
encouraging all Floridians to get tested. The
theme of this year's campaign, "Take the
Test, Take Control," focuses on the
importance of informing at-risk individuals of
the opportunity to discover their HIV status
and learn about access to prevention and
healthcare services.
"Too -many Floridians with HIV are
diagnosed so late in the course of their
infection that they may be unable to take
advantage of life-prolonging treatments,"
DOH Secretary Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said. "HIV testing can reduce the
spread of HIV. When infected persons are
aware of their status, they can take the
necessary precautions to stop spreading the
disease."
Approximately 125,000 Floridians are
currently infected with HIV/AIDS, with 20
percent unaware of their condition. DOH is
asking communities to take a leadership role
in promoting and encouraging HIV testing
and providing access to prevention and care
services.
"HIV testing is easier, more accessible and
less invasive than ever," Tom Liberti, Chief
of the Bureau of HIV/AIDS said. "It is
important to reach out to communities at
increased risk of HIV infection, especially
African-American and Latino populations,
both of which are disproportionately affected
with HIV when compared to other
demographic groups.

ALALANCHE RANCH FUN ENDS AT: 12:1


We encourage our community partners to
help us spread the message about the
importance of HIV testing everywhere people
live, work, play and worship."
Testing for HIV is widely available
throughout Florida. On June 27th, many
locations will extend hours of operation for
free testing. Several choices now exist for
people seeking an HIV test. Traditional
blood tests and oral swab tests provide results
in about two weeks. The newer and more
rapid HIV test, which requires only a finger
stick blood specimen or an oral swab, delivers
reliable results in minutes. However, reactive
rapid tests must be confirmed with a follow-
up traditional HIV test before the person
tested can be informed they're infected with
HIV.
DOH recommends testing if a person has
participated in unprotected sexual activity pr
has shared syringes or injected needles
through drug use, tattooing or piercing.
Additionally, all pregnant .women and
children born to HIV-positive women should
get tested.
DOH promotes and protects the health and
safety of all people in Florida through the
delivery of quality public health services aId
the promotion of health care standards. For
more information about National HIV Testing
Day,, please visit DOH's Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us and select "AIDS/HIV"
from the drop down box. For additional
information about how to get tested, please
contact your primary health care provider or
local county health department.

Mentors Change Lives... Volunteer
Governor Charlie Crist has extended greetings and best wisfies
to all organizations and mentors that are involved in mentoring
and invited all Floridians to become a caring adult in a child's
life. Bush declared that Florida research shows mentored youth
are 50 percent less likely to skip school and have a higher annual
learning gain than nonmentored youth. Although most people
view mentoring as a worthwhile pursuit, far fewer actually step
forward and volunteer. Consequently, despite strenuous efforts,
many programs struggle to recruit enough volunteers for all of the
children who need them. The Dixie County Take Stock'in
Children (TSIC) program needs you!
What is TSIC? It's more than a program and a strategy; it's anr
opportunity to change a child's life forever. TSIC helps
disadvantaged children achieve academic and personal success
through a scholarship and mentor program led by a local
partnership of schools, businesses, agencies, and individuals
under the direction of the Lake City Community College (LCCC)
Foundation. Since 1995, the foundation has awarded 218f
scholarships to deserving, lower income students in the college's
five-county district (Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union
counties). This year Dixie County High School will have thi-ttf
six Take Stock in Children students in the program.
Students are selected, from the five-county district, after
completing applications for the TSIC college scholarships during
the last quarter of their eighth-grade year. Students' and their
parents) or guardian must sign a contract pledging they will
remain drug and crime-free, maintain satisfactory grades (2..0
GPA), meet with a mentor an hour each week, and adhere to the.
school code of conduct until graduation. In turn, they are give'd
the promise of a two year Lake City Community College
scholarship and the support of a caring mentor. The Take Stock-in
Children program is actively recruiting mentors. A strong base-of
trained mentors is important because a TSIC student must 'be
matched with a mentor before signing for a scholarship.
When you commit to mentor a TSIC student, you meet with the
TSIC coordinator and complete an application and a screening
process. After some basic training, you will be matched with a
student who can benefit most from your influence. As a mentor,
you: meet weekly with your student during his or her lunch timiei
become a friend, tutor, and role model; teach positive cultural and
community values; assist your student in setting goals and
attaining them; guide your student toward an education arid
productive life; give a child hope for the future, and the abilityito
contribute to the future of our communities.
If you're one of those skeptical people who say "They don't
need me; I'm just one person; I can't change the world alone,"
consider the following anonymous poem used to describe the
difference a mentor can make in one child's life: -.
As the old man walked the beach at dawn, "
He noticed a young man ahead of him picking up
A starfish and flinging it into the sea.

Finally catching up with the youth,
He asked him why he was doing this.

The answer was that the stranded starfish would die
If left until the morning sun.

"But the beach goes on for miles
And there are millions of starfish," countered the old man.
"How can your effort make any difference?"

The young man looked at the starfish in his hand
And then threw it safely in the waves.
"It makes a difference to this one." he said.

I would like to personally thank all of our mentors for'
volunteering their time to help a student succeed. If you would-
like to be a part of this. great program please call Kathryn
McInnis, (352) 498-6409, Take Stock in Children Coordinator.

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'induded in your final

Watering Technology
Saves Time And Money
(NAPS)-Lawn irrigation
systems save time and
money for millions of home-
owners because they can be
preprogrammed and control
water use by evenly water-
ing properties.
A new wave of technology
makes maintaining a green
lawn even easier and less
costly. It puts lawn irrigation
management at homeown-
ers' fingertips, turning the
home computer into a center
for sprinkler operations.


PC Control'" from Irritrol
features customizable soft-
ware and irrigation control
hardware for new systems,
or can be used to replace vir-
tually any brand of sprinkler
timer. Now homeowners can
set and update irrigation
schedules from their personal
computer. Irrigation days and
times can be changed with-
out leaving the computer,
eliminating frequent treks to
the garage or basement to
adjust a confusing set of dials
and timers. Maintenance
checks can even be scheduled
with local contractors right
from the computer.
Another important feature
uses a rain sensor so the sprin-
kler system doesn't run need-
lessly. At a time when water
bills are rising and demands
for water conservation are
growing, this technology can
pay for itself in a relatively
short amount of time.
PC Control'" is offered
through local professional
irrigation distributors.
