In a special budget meeting
Thursday night, the Cross City
City. Council voted to approve
lowering the property tax mill-
age rate to 6.1293. This is a sub-
stantial decrease from last
year's rate of 6.5, revenue to the
city is expected to be stable, due
to the increases in property val-
ues over the last year. The rolled
back rate was required by the
State of Florida in order to
maintain the % sales tax cur-
rently collected by the city
The council also discussed.
and approved the new proposed
budget. The council debated fig-
ures for reimbursable grants to
the pa rks and recreation depart-
S ment, current communications
expenses for city operations,
and water quality. According to
Mike Cassidy, City Manager,
city water quality tests are
"only 13/100ths off. and are look-
ing much better."
Any citizen who wishes to
review the proposed budget may
see CITY page 20

Hwy 19 when the vehicle lost
control, crossing the median to
the North shoulder. The vehicle
then rotated clockwise, over-
turning one time then struck a
power pole. The vehicle came to
rest laying on the passenger
side. All passengers were sent
to the hospital with serious in-
jurie. Lepakis was reported to
have received the most serious
having been partially ejected
from the vehicle and then get-
ting pinned underneath.
The Shands Life Flight Heli-
copter landed on Highway 19.
Emergenicy Services, crews
worked diligently to stabilize
the victims. "All Departments
of local Emergency Services
worked together in unison to ef-
fectively manage the situation",
reported a witness.
Lepakis had to be transport-
ed by life flight to the hospital
with massive head trauma. No
word on their conditions.

Mediators Come To Dixie County


County Judge Fred
Koberlein announced that,
County Court Mediators
from the Third Judicial
Circuit Mediation Pro-
gram have become avail-
able in Dixie County "We
have had two trial runs;
both ran smoothly." Said
Judge Koberlein. "I hope
that they are here to stay."
Mediation is a dispute
resolution process where-

by a neutral third party
called a mediator encour-
ages and facilitates the
resolution of issues. Me-
diation is not counseling
or representation. The me-
diator does not represent
any party. Through medi-
ation the parties are often
able to reach agreements
that are designed to meet.
their specific needs. The
parties decide what they
will do, not the Judge.
"We are using
Supreme Court certified
County Court Media-
tors." reported Judge
Koberlein, "But, they
come to us at no cost."
The mediators who come
to Dixie County volun-
teer through the Third
Circuit Mediation pro-


gram which is headed by
Ms Nancy Blanton of
Lake City. Their train-
ing is set by law. If there
are people who would
sincerely like to partici-
pate in the training and
be available for media-
tion, they can contact
Ms Blanton at 386 754
7028.
Through the media-
tors, litigants are given
an opportunity to obtain
a mutually agreeable so-
lution. If they are un-
able to agree, their case
is set for an adversarial
trial. "In mediation
there is often a 'win win'
resolution for the par-
ties; at trial one usually
one party has to lose."
said Judge Koberlein.

That "Peaceful"


Religion Of Islam
Last year, a 20 year-old Islamic woman living in Lon-
don was brutally beaten and raped by several men for.
more than two hours before being strangled to death.
Her body was then taken to a remote area where she was
buried in a shallow grave.
Was this' the act of some "Islamophobic" Brits Who
carried out this cowardly act as a way of protesting the
growing Muslim presence in their country? Or perhaps
some radical Muslims who objected to the fact that the
woman wasn't wearing a head scarf?
As a matter of fact, it was the victim's family mem-.
bers and a few of their friends, all of them Muslim men.
Their problem was that Banaz Mahmod was planning to,
leave her, husband for another man. As a teen-ager, Ba-
naz had been forced into a marriage and had subse-
.quently become attracted to another man, also a Mus-
lim, incidentally, so she wasn't actually leaving the faith
for an infidel, .though leaving her husband for any rea-
son could have been a violation of Shira law.
In the Islamic culture, this sort of thing is known as
an "honor killing." According to Jeff Foxworthy's defi-
nition of redneck culture, a good ol' boy climbs the wa-
ter tower with a paint brush to defend his sister's honor.
According to what is believed to be the strict, or "funda-
mentalist" reading of the Quran, the issue is not the
woman's honor, but the family's; and if she doesn't mea-
sure up, her male relatives are obliged to kill her.
This would appear to be what happened to Banaz
Mahmod. What her male relatives did was perhaps con-
sistent with Shira lawalthough I would have some reser-
vations about suggesting that the Quran would have
sanctioned the incestuous gang rapebut the point is that
it was not consistent with British law. As a result, her fa-
ther and several others have been arrested, tried and
convicted of murder, while police are seeking the re-
maining suspects.
The British are a civilized people at heart, and it's
encouraging to know that they don't intend to put up
with this sort of thing. Gordon Brown, the new Prime
Minister, had us worried for awhile with his admoni-x
tions to the press to tone down the rhetoric when: re-
porting on Muslim terrorists, but apparently he's get-'
ting his feet on the ground, particularly with regard to
his recent warnings to Iran.
The issue in the case of Banaz Mahmod is not one of
terrorism in the usual sense, however. The men who
were guilty of this crime were not, as far as we know, in
any way connected with various terrorist acts that have.
been planned and (mostly) thwarted by British law en-
forcement.
In other words, these men were "peaceful" Muslims.
As far as the public was concerned, they went about ob-
serving their customs, but behaving themselves. They
might not have been as welcome as the bluebirds over
the white cliffs of Dover, but they weren't bothering any-
one.
At least they weren't until several of them beat,
raped and murdered one of their own family That's the
sort of thing that will annoy your neighbors, even if it
does not directly affect you. Today, they abuse and kill
one of their own for what they consider an embarrass-
ment. What if they gained control of the government?
That's something the British have recently been giv-
en much cause to be concerned-about, as well they
should.
But, have we? It's been almost six years since 9/11,
and we seem to be growing complacent. The question
arises, is it going to take another major terrorist attack
on our own soil before we wake up to the threat that
dwells among us?

Boyd Votes To Give

Federal Handouts To

Illegal Tmmigrants
Democrats gut requirements in SCHIP law that
require states to verify citizenship before
providing health benefits
Allen Boyd today voted to make it easier for illegal
immigrants to receive federal benefits under the State
Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). By vot-
ing yes on House Roll Call 787, Boyd voted to reverse leg-
islation put in place by the Republican Congress that
would ensure only United States citizens could receive
benefits under SCHIP.
Not only does this legislation allow illegal immi-
grants access to government benefits, it also raises tax-
es on hard working Americans and drastically cuts
Medicare for seniors to help pay for the expanded enti-
tlement program.
"It is irresponsible for the Democrats to put the bur-
den of paying for the health care of illegal immigrants
on the backs of seniors and hardworking American cit-
izens. This approach will tie up funds needed to help U.S.
citizens and our nation's most needy children, and could
eventually destroy our healthcare system," NRCC Com-
munications Director Jessica Boulanger said.
The Washington Times described the Democrat's ef-
forts in an editorial printed on July 30, 2007:
"This reflects the Democrats' eagerness to offer free
services to illegals at taxpayer expense, undermining
the principles of both immigration law and good gover-
nance." (Washington Times Editorial, July 30, 2007)
The Boyd-backed SCHIP bill will waive the require-
ment that individuals show proof of citizenship before
applying for Medicaid or SCHIP and will end the current
five-year waiting period for legal immigrants to receive
government health care benefits.
"Allen Boyd has set a pattern of voting against legis-
lation that would improve our current immigration sys-
tem and secure our borders. Giving benefits to illegal
immigrants is the straw that broke the camel's back.
His voting record is out-of-step with his district and is
against the best interest of our country," Boulanger
- said.


A juvenile boy knocked on a door around 5 a.m. on
the morning of August 5, asking the homeowner to help
him pull a van out of the ditch. The homeowner called
the Dixie County Sheriff's Department.
Deputy Thomas Daniels responded to the call.
Upon investigation, Deputy Daniels discovered that the
van belonged to the Partnership for Strong Families, a
state agency headquartered in Gainesville.
The driver of the van, an underage driver, had
missed a curve, came to rest in a ditch and gotten stuck.


Deputy Daniels arrested the three juveniles for posses-
sion of a stolen motor vehicle and transported them to
the Dixie County Jail.
They were, later transported to the Department of
Juvenile Justice. Two of the juveniles were runaways
from the Partnership for Strong Families in Gainesville.
The van was recovered from the ditch unharmed and re-
turned to the Partnership.
A spokesman for the Partnership was unavailable
for comment.

The Old Town Chicks met at the Lighthouse Restau-
rant on July 31, 2007 to have their Annual Christmas In
July They also invited The Accentuators Red Hatters
from Old Town to join us and we were so happy to see so
many of them come be with us.
Always at our Christmas In July we all bring a gift
for exchange and also items for an auction we have to
raise money to give to the needy. This year the money
will go to the United Christian Services in Cross City for
holiday baskets. We had a very nice visit and lots of fun
with the auction, everything was decorated for Christ-
mas, which is hard to do in July, but ,our Red Hatter
Dorine always manages it so well, she is very gifted..
Happy Birthday was sung for our Sister Geri Fonda who
wore her purple hat, which symbolizes that it is your
birthday month.
Next month will be a surprise, check the paper and
see where we go in August!!

PRINCESS DIANA

LOOK-A-LIKE CONTEST
The
competition
for Princess
Diaia look-
a-like only
has three
entrants so
far and
we're wait- .
ing for their
signatures
because !.
there would
a lot of pub-
licity in-
volved and : .
we want to
be sure i
there would
not be any conflict about the use of their image.
A reminder, this is the month of Diana's birth. She
would have been 46 years old July 1, 2007.
Why Princess Diana? Because she was a great exam-
ple of an altruist woman of this era. It also has some-
thing to do with the fact that my husband who was born
in England, became an American Citizen at an early age,
joined the RCAF, was a Flying Officer and flew 65 Mis-
sions as a spitfire pilot over the English Channel during
World War II, came home to talk about it, and twenty
years later married me. Incidentally although his moth-
er was English, his dad was a Blackfoot "Novi" and Ger-
.man.
We've not heard from any "Are" or "Would-be De-
signers" of garments that would be suitable for Diana's
past activities. That's wide open, come on and start de-
signing; use a friend or yourself to model the garments.
I'll be out of the area the last two weeks in September
lining up judges of these apparel designs. Who knows
one or more of you may be entering a world-wide indus-
try. Keep reading your local newspapers. We have
waivered dues, use that money for current papers or
send a self-addressed envelope o receive newsletters, or
read on senior center boards, libraries, markets, ask
your friends and if you have a computer check newslet-
ters on.

Dixie County Road Department Gets Upgrades
The Dixie County Road Department has undergone a complete facelift in the past few years beginning with a se-
curity fence. The new office is approximately 600 sq.ft. and is used for administration for the Road Department, Sol-
id Waste Department and the Mosquito Control Department.
Directly behind the office is a storage building which houses supplies for all departments. Located there is a
two-bay mechanic shop where servicing and repairs
are done for all county equipment. A sign shop was
created where all traffic control and addressing signs
are made.
A waste oil shed is the newest addition, where county .
residents can bring their uncontaminated waste oil for
disposal between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
SMonday through Friday
I A computerized fuel tracking system was also recent-
ly added which operates from an individualized key
that tracks fuel to the equipment and specific operator. Waste oil shed Photo by Ronnie Williams
These changes have made the area safer and more secure as well as more attractive.
The Road Department constantly strives to continue to upgrade facilities as budget permits with future plans for a
secure area for mosquito control vehicles and equipment to protect from the elements as well as intruders. Also in
the future plans is to replace a recently demolished storage shed which had extensive rot and termite problems, the
Road Department hopes intends for this shed to protect the County's investment in equipment that can be damaged

God continues to bless! It
was great to have our pastor
back with us Sunday morn-
ing, after his having under-
gone a medical procedure in
Gainesville last Thursday.
Our choir and musicians
sounded good, and Bro. Billy,
with God's anointing and
strengthening, then deliv-
ered a soul-stirring message
from Lamentations 3:22-23.
On Sunday evening, Bro.
Andy Chesser brought an
outstanding message using
several texts as he stood in
for Bro. Billy, giving the lat-
ter a little longer to recuper-
ate. We thank God for His
generous supply of people
in the church who step to
the plate when needed!
Our girls are scheduled to


attend the "Girl Talk Re-
treat" at Pickett Lake this
coming Friday and Saturday,
Aug. 10th and 11th. The fol-
lowing Wednesday evening,
Aug. 15th, we will have our
monthly Fellowship Supper
at NPBC. On Aug. 16th at
6:30 P. M., there will be a
WMU/Clerk Training held
at Rock Sink Baptist
Church.
The prayer lists remain ex-
tensive, so we encourage you
to pray for all those in
. need...God DOES answer
prayers. Please be in prayer
also for our President, other
political leaders, and our
people in the armed forces.
We enjoyed visitors in our
midst again Sunday and, as
always, we invite you and all
others to come out and fel-

Have a good week, and may
God bless you.


FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH

NEWS

Today was a wonderful day at Faith. Our crowd was
large, we had several visitors, and we even had a new little
man in our midst. Daniel and Amy Landrum brought their
new little "Luke" to church today. What a beautiful baby
and family they are, God has really blessed us all at Faith.
Bro. Jackie brought two good messages, the special music
was good as always and we are just so thankful for all His
blessings.
Remember this week to pray for someone less fortunate
than yourself, the sick, the bereaved and the ones in the hos-
pital. Pray for strength for their families as they minister to
them.
Our Awanas will begin again in August. Pray about this
and ask God to show you if you can help in any way with
this program. Invite the little children to come be a part of
this program. It's a wonderful way to teach them about Je-
sus. See Bro. Leonard Allen if you feel led to work with the
little ones.

Have you been feeling far away from GOD lately? Who
moved? The more we love Christ, the more we love others.

Behold the Tabernacle

of God
Rev 21:3

"Heaven and Hell"

Continued from last week, Every man as to his spirit is
consociated with His like in the spiritual world, and is
as one with them; and it has often been given me to see
in societies the spirits of men still living some in an-
gelic societies and some in infernal;, and I have also
.been permitted to converse with them for days, and
have wondered that man himself while he lives in his
body should know nothing about this other life. From
this ,it was manifest that whoever denies God, is al-
ready among the condemned and after death is gath-
ered to his own, The human mind is capable of being
elevated above the senstial things which dre' t Ith"i
thoughts from the senses of the body, and that when it
is elevated it sees those things which are of life above,
and those things which are of nature below? What else
is life but love and wisdom? And what else is nature
but their receptacle, by which they may work their ef-
fects or uses? Can these be one except as principal and
instrumental are? Can light be.one with the eye, or
sound with the ear? Whence are the sensations of these
but from life? Whence their forms but from nature?
What is the human body but an organ of life? Are not
all things and everything therein organically formed
for producing those things which the love wills and the
understanding thinks? Are not the organs of the body
from nature, and love and thought from life? And are
not thses wholly distinct from each other? Elevate the
keen sight of your genius yet a little higher, and you
will see that it is of life to be affected and to think, and
that it is of love to be affected, and of wisdom to think
and both are of life; for, as just said, love and wisdom
are life. If you elevate the faculty of understanding a
little higher still, you will see that love and wisdom do
not exist unless their origin is Love, itself and Wisdom
itself and thence Life itself; and these are God from
whom nature is. The one God is substance itself and
form itself, angels and men are substance and forms
from Him this form is the Human itself, that is that
God is very Man. Love you, continued next week.

CHURCH NEWS


Thank you, gracious
Lord, for your bound-
less goodness and mer-
cy. We at Lydia, are
praising Him for Edith I
Valentine's speedy re-
covery from an arterial
blockage. We are all so
happy to have our very .,,,
own Edith home again! u i
Elaine Hines pointed i. 1
out in children's -
church that Jesus is
the ONLY one who can clean our hearts on the INSIDE!- We
can display our EXTERNAL goodness and cleanliness, but
only God and we ourselves know the condition of the inner
heart.
Brother Benny Valentine sang the beautiful "Heaven Will Be
My Home", much to the delight of the entire congregation.
Pastor Wayne Allen brought us a great message from He-
brews 10:19-25. God has given us so much love, so WE OWE
HIM! Thanks to the blood of Jesus, we have direct access to
God, but we don't avail ourselves of this offer enough. We can
have FULL ASSURANCE of eternal life if we serve him. Our
task, as church members, is to give ourselves to others. We
need to gather at God's house so we can fellowship and find'
out the needs of others. However, our own heart must be
"right with God" so we have the ability to pray for others. Do
those who only attend church occasionally think they are do-
ing God a favor when they show up?
Everyone in the community is invited to attend Pastor
Allen's series of sermons on the Church Covenant, begin-
ning Wednesday, August 22nd at 7PM. Invite several friends
and family members to hear this inspiring teaching.
Our monthly dinner will be on Wednesday, August 15th at
7PM. Bring friends and family to enjoy more delicious food
than you can possibly eat!
Remember, at Lydia everybody is somebody and Christ is
everything.


NEW PROSPECT

BAPTIST NEWS

As we close out another month, we rejoice in God's
great love, mercy, and blessings-..there is no other like
Him! On Sunday, we had the privilege once again of
gathering in His Name to praise Him in song and re-
ceive the messages in store for us from His Holy
Word. Our chpir so.uided exceptionally well, after
which Bro. Billy brought timely and well-thought-out
-messages'from Ephesians 2:8-9 and Hebrews 11:6,
morning and evening, respectively. God is Great!

On Wednesday evening, Aug. 8th, we will have our
monthly Church Business Meeting immediately fol-
lowing Prayer Meeting. Then, on Friday and Satur-
day, Aug. 10th and 11th, there will be a "Girl's Talk Re-
treat" at Pickett Lake near Mayo, in which our girls
from NPBC will participate. We have more activities
in the offing, so please keep watching this column.

Please remember to be in prayer for those on all the
church prayer lists, our people in the military, and
our President and other leaders. Once again, we were
very pleased to have visitors Sunday, and welcome
you and all others to visit and fellowship with us any-
time! Have, a good week, and may God bless and keep
you!


"The Woman Brought
Forth from Man" 1, the son
of man, say, "Wives, submit
yourselves unto your own
husbands, as unto the
Lord. Therefore as the
church is' subject unto
Christ, so let the wives be
to their own husbands in
everything." (Eph 5:22-24)
Just as man, in his rebel-
lion against God, has not
been in submission to the
headship of Christ so also
woman have rebelled
against the headship of
man. But, there needs to be
care taken, lest this "battle
of the sexes" as it has often
been termed, actually be-
comes a battle AGAINST
GOD who placed them in a
feminine body. There is a
deep spiritual work that
takes place, in those who
seek to "grow in grace and
in the knowledge of our
Lord Jesus Christ." (2 Pe-


ter 3:18) When they also
bow their will and become
"subject to their husbands"
in everything. God knew
which of us needed to be
placed in masculine bodies
for our development and
He also knew which ones
to place in a feminine body.
Many a woman who re-
sented being, a "woman",
and wished she were a
man found that she was ac-
tually rebelling against
God because He made her
a woman physically. Many
do not want to submit to
the position and role that
belongs to woman. But
when we remember that
"natural travail" is for the
purpose of exercise and
spiritual upbringing, then
we find that surrendering
our "will" as regards earth-
ly things, also works in our
yieldedness to God. For it
will be found that the man-


Father Joseph

McDonnell Named

Pastor


St. John the Evangelist Parish and Hol,( Cross
Mission Chiefland, Fla. Bishop Victor Galeone
of the Catholic Diocese of Saint Augustine has
appointed Father Joseph McDonnell pastor of
St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in
Chiefland and Holy Cross Mission in Cross City,
Fla., effective August 1, 2007.
Father McDonnell comes to Levy and Dixie
counties from Christ the King Catholic Church
in Jacksonville, where he served as parochial
vicar from Oct. 17, 2005 to July 31, 2007. Or-
dained to the priesthood by Bishop Galeone on
May 15, 2004, Father McDonnell's first assign-
ment was parochial vicar. at St. Matthew
Catholic Church, Jacksonville, where he served
until Oct. 16, 2005. Father McDonnell, 66, at-
tended Sacred Heart School of Theology in
Hales Corners, Wis., a seminary that special-
izes in second-career vocations. While his early

ifestations in the natural
are often outward indica-
tions of spiritual in work-
ing. "Likewise, ye wives, be
in subjection to your own
husbands; that if any obey
not the Word, they also
may without the Word be
won by the conversation of
the Wives; while they be-
hold your chaste conversa-
tion with fear." (1 Peter 3:1-
2) This word "conversa-
tion" which is used comes
from the Greek word
'meaning BEHAVIOR. All
of the nagging and selfish
insistence upon their own
way, has nullified a pro-
fessed christianity of
many To claim to be yield-
ed to Christ, and yet not be
yielded to their husband,
belies the very confession.
It runs a close parallel to
what John wrote, "If a man
say, I love God, and hateth
his brother, he is a liar: for


he that loveth not his
brother whom he hath
seen, how can he love God
whom he hath not seen?" (1
John 4:20) The principle is
clear, spiritual life will be
seen in daily living. Chris-
tianity is not just in "words
it is a WAY OF LIFE. Thus
a woman's chaste behavior,
cheerfully obedient to the
headship of her husband,
will reveal the grace of
God in her life, and draw
her husband towards God.
I the son of man, say, it can
be safely said that when a
woman walks in the spirit,
she can submit to the head-
ship of her own husband,
and if she knows that
something isn't right, as
she obeys, and TRUSTS
GOD, God will correct
things until they are right.
Love you, continued next
. week.


life took him in other directions, Father McDon-
nell says the thoughts of priesthood were
deeply ingrained.
He graduated from Marquette University, with a
degree in philosophy, and Marquette University
Law School. For most of his law career he was
in private practice. The last eight years of his
law career he worked for a Milwaukee not-for-
profit community support program, where he
was both attorney and caseworker for mentally
ill clients. Father McDonnell also serves as the
diocesan moderator and spiritual advisor of the
Society of St. Vincent de Paul an organization
that provides direct social services to those in
need.
Parishioners at Christ the King Parish are sad
to see Father Joe leave their faith community,
commenting: "He is a big man blessed with a
sunny disposition and an eagerness to bring
the Good News to those he serves."
Father McDonnell succeeds Father Kuriakose
Nediakala, who was reassigned by his
religious order in July.

Agribusiness Management Education for Employment
By Jim Grimes, Lake City Community College tech prep/agribusiness coordinator
Agribusiness touted as successful career
Students can receive degree from Lake City Community College.
At this time of yeal, most students already have decided which college to attend..
However, many first-year students don't have a clue about the type of career they should
seek.
Lake City Community College may have the answer: learn the ins-and-outs of agribusiness
management.
A student recently asked, "Just what can I expect as employment opportunities in agribusi-
ness management?" This was also a thought provoking question. I began to think about all the
agricultural possibilities in Florida and beyond and was soon amazed at all the employment op-
portunities. First, what is agribusiness? Agribusiness has many definitions but is narrowly de-
fined as the sum total of all operations involved in the manufacture and distribution of farm
supplies.
Think about this for just a moment. This also includes the production operations on a farm
as well as storage, processing and distribution of resulting commodities.
Is farming agribusiness? Not the act of farming in itself; that is, the growing of agricultural
crops. However, a typical farmer certainly manages interests, taxes, repair and replacement of
equipment, fertilizers, wages, fuel, electricity and many other functions of farming. So produc-
tion agriculturalists must be business managers or they will fail. So farming is indeed a busi-
ness but agribusiness goes far beyond the farm gate. It's not just farming anymore.

ANR ONE TIME


AT AtNP CAMP...s


By: Katherine McKinney


After standing for
hours in the sweltering sununer sun, the mem-
bers of the Dixie County High School Marching Band are wilted, but not drooping. The
band is wrapping up its second week of band camp on Friday with an open-house for parents and
boosters. Band Director Jamie Garrett is at home, recuperating from the arrival of twins, but with lots
of help from her husband and volunteers like David Cravey, the DCHS band is getting ready for a busy
football and competition season. The band has been practicing from eight in the morning to five in the
afternoon in some of the hottest temperatures of the year, and sometimes in pouring rain.
"We have to practice no matter how hard its raining, unless there's thunder or lightning," said Re-
becca Locklear, one of the Ruth Rains Middle School students attending band camp. "They're really
working hard," praised David Cravey, "They're doing really, really well."
Parents can view the results of all of the band's hard work on Friday at 5pm at DCHS or at Ruth
Rains Middle School. The location is subject to-the spraying of the football field and will be an-
nounced to parents on Thursday afternoon.

, .. Alarming Night 'orAES Staff=


By Kim Lander
Last Friday night, the alarm sounded at Anderson Elementary School. Law Enforcement were on
the scene immediately, as were Principal, Denee Hurst and Front Office Coordinator Janice Carr,
though it didn't turn into a problem. Principal Denee Hurst confirmed that the fire alarm sensor in one
wing of the school seems to react to abrupt changes in humidity. Kudos for our local Law Enforce-
ment for getting to the scene so quickly!

College football test


underway

The world automatically is a better place to-
day because college football practice is under-
way
Here in Florida, it is a fourimonth festival to
be celebrated with coronations in January (And
in the case of college hoops, in March, too.)
Although our state often is the butt of Jay
Leno and David Letterman jokes, they can never
make fun of our college sports programs at
least with the same intensity and regularity as
they do with Britney Spears, George Bush, Don-
ald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Mike Vick and
Barack Obama.
In Gainesville, Tallahassee and Coral Gables
there is much to be proud about.
Since the pre-season USA Today College foot-
ball poll began in 1981, only five programs have
been ranked every year. Two of them are Florida
and Florida State. The others are Michigan, Ohio
State and Tennessee.
Florida is ranked No. 3 in this year's USA To-
day/ESPN Coaches Poll, just behind No. 1 USC
and No. 2 LSU. Florida State is 21st.
Miami is not ranked. Neither are Jim Leav-
itt's promising University of South Florida Bulls
- or Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia Tech, South
Carolina or Missouri.
Surprisingly, a team that I think will be com-
peting with the Big Boys for the championship,
West Virginia, is only No. 6.
Ah, those polls. Don't you love 'em?.The con-
troversy officially gets undeirway today in this
column.
The road to the BCS Championship Game
Jan. 7 at the New Orleans Super Dome eventual-
ly will come through the State of Florida, be-
cause even if USC doesn't play the Gators, Semi-
noles or Hurricanes in the regular season, there


will be enough interaction among then to im1-
pact the top teams.
The Gators or Tigers could wind tup playing
fort the national champions hip) moreii than likely
against Southern Cal Oddsmialakers lavor LSU.
Florida must deal with LSU at Baton Rouge -
one of five ranked opponents in the regular
season and possibly again in Atlanta for the title
game.
FSU only has Virginia Tech and Florida as
ranked opponents, but some pretty tough road
games at Clemson, Colorado and Boston College.
The 'Noles get Miami at home.
New Miami coach Randy Shannon has his
work cut out in games with ranked opponents
Oklahoma, Texas A&M, FSU and Virginia Tech.
The latter two are on the road, as is the season fi-
nale against Boston College.
In the past 26 seasons, teams from the state of
Florida have won nine of the national champi-
onships.
Miami owns five, the last one in 2001. Florida
has two in 10 years, 1996 and 2006. Florida State
posted them in 1993 and 1999.
All of this may sound like chicken feed on the
national toteboard, because John Fineran's
Notre Dame has the all-time record of 13, fol-
lowed by Southern Cal, Michigan and Alabama.
The difference is that Notre Dame's last one
came in 1988; Michigan's in 1997; and Alabama's
in 1992. Of that group, USC has the most recent
one in 2004.
This season in the Sunshine State the story
lines are clean simple:
Urban Meyer, off to a remarkable 22-4 start
with an SEC ring and national title to to his cred-
it, has to prove he can sustain. To do that he's got
to replace nine starters on defense and win with


a sophomore quarterback starting for the first
time in rugged SEC competition.
My prediction: Florida goes 10-2, losing to
LSU and South Carolina, but wins the SEC East
and beats LSU in a rematch for the title, making
it to another BCS Bowl game but not the na-
tional championship.
Florida State, with a brand new offensive
staff, will make some noise in the ACC. Mickey
Andrews' defense always is solid and now we'll
see if offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher is
everything as advertised. I think the 'Noles will
come out of it 9-3, with losses to Clemson, Boston
College and Florida.
Miami is tough to read. Patrick Nix, handling
the offensive coordinator's job, will have to pick
between Kyle Wright and Kirby Freeman as
quarterback.
I see a tough road ahead for Shannon, with a
6-6 start and a longshot as a bowl team. Losses:
Oklahoma, Texas A&M, FSU, North Carolina,
Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech.
The team on the way up to watch is South
Florida and we would do well to remember that
Jim Leavitt's Bulls finished ahead of Miami and
FSU in last year's BCS rankings.
This year's Bulls defense is strong, but a
tough schedule includes road games at Auburn,
Rutgers, Syracuse and Pitt not to mention
home games with North Carolina, West Virginia
and Louisville. A good season would be 8-4, with
losses to the Mountaineers, Scarlet Knights, Car-
dinals and Panthers.
Central Florida, the other member of the Big
Five, has a similar outlook, but without as much
talent. George O'Leary has his work cut out with
a road schedule that includes Rutgers, Syracuse
and Pittsburgh, plus home games against North
Carolina, West Virginia and Louisville. That
looks like at least five, maybe six, losses.
Best games of the year: Florida at LSU,
Auburn at Florida, Florida at South Carolina,
FSU at Florida, FSU at Clemson, Alabama-FSU
at Jacksonville, Miami at Oklahoma, Miami at
FSU, West Virginia at South Florida.

Hunter safety courses offered sign needs, call the Advocate,


By Tony Young
FWC .
With the dog-days of sum-
mer upon us, it's hard to think
about hunting.
But if you're between the
ages of 16 and 31, and haven't
yet taken the state's hunter
safety class now's just the
time to be thinking about it.
Many of these classes, of-
fered statewide, fill up fast dur-
inghunting season while peo-
ple scramble to get certified.
Summer months offer smaller
class sizes and make for a bet-
ter opportunity for students to
attend because they often have
more free time.
e Everyone 16 years old or old-
er and born after May 31. 1975,
must complete the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's hunter safety re-
quirement before purchasing a
Florida hunting license.
.There is an exception
though. A law passed last year
allows individuals to hunt un-
der the supervision of a li-
censed hunter, 21 years old or
older, without having to com-
plete the state's hunter safety
certification.
It's called the "Hunter Safe-
ty Mentoring Exemption," and
enables those persons to pur-
chase a Florida bunting li-
cense and hunt on a one-
year trial basis. It's designed to
encourage experienced hunters
to teach novice hunters about
the support of hunting and is a
great incentive for getting more
people to give hunting atry
Individuals taking advan-
tage of this would have to pass
a hunter safety class to be eligi-
ble to hunt the following year.
If you're a youngster and al-
ready hunt, go ahead and take a
hunter safety class before you '
turn 16.
Of course, until then, you
may hunt under aduldt supervi
sion.
You can register for a hunter
safety class by going to
MyFWC.com/huntersafety or
by contacting your nearest
FWC regional office. Also, two
versions are available.
There's the traditional
course, which is 12 hours of
classroom instruction plus a
four-hour "field day" or you

at home. But,
you'll still have
to sign up for the
"skills day" part.
The tradition-
al course is of- T
fered during four
weekdays or on a -
Saturday/Sun-
day If you take it -
during the
week, each ses-
sion is three
hours and of-
fered after normal working
hours. On the weekend,
you'll spend eight hours Sat-
urday and four hours Sun-
day morning in the class-
room.
The remainder of Sunday,
you'll move over to the
shooting range to complete
your certification.
The first thing you'll
learn about taking the tradi-
tional class is Florida's
many hunting laws. An
FWC law enforcement offi-
cer gives this introduction.
Volunteer hunter safety in-
structors teach the remaining
curriculum.
You'll be taught ethics,
hunter responsibility ; parts'of
firearms. various hunting lingo
and the proper way to shoot.


You'll discover differences

and best man-

In addition,
you'll find out
about outdoor
survival tech-
niques and learn how to admin-
ister first aid in the field.
Archery and fundamentals of
bowhunting also are taught.
In your last hour in the
classroom, you'll be given a
standardized test of true
and false and multiple
choice questions.
All you need is to score
an 80 percent or better, and
then you get to move outside
to the shooting range for the
field day portion.
This part takes about
four hours. During that time
you'U get to shoot clay pi-
geons with a shotgun, prac-
tice your archery skills and
target practice with a .22-
caliber rifle.
You'll also receive a muz-
zleloader demonstration,


where you'll have the
chianc'to shoot one if yotid
like.
All guns, bows, targets and
ammo are provided. All you
have to do is take aim.
After you complete the
field day you'll be given
your hunter safety card.
At that point you can pur-
chase a Florida hunting li-
cense and get ready for
opening day
If you choose to take the
hunter safety class online or
by CD-ROM, you'll learn all
of the above-mentioned ma-
terial and be given a prac-
tice test to prepare you for
the last segment the skills
day
Saturday skill days take
about five hours to com-
plete. You'll learn much of
what is taught during the
traditional course, including
hunting laws and ethics,
how to handle firearms safe-
ly, when to take a shot and
where to take aim. You'll get
to shoot on the range and be
given the same standardized
test.
Register today to take a
hunter safety class because
the 2007-08 hunting season's
just around the corner. Re-
member- safe hunting is no
accident.

the NBA next season before some fan starts
screaming for the investigation of a referee (who
called a game that he bet on and lost).
The fact is that Tim Tebow will need a relief
man the way he relieved Chris Leak last year, be-
cause no quarterback with his physical style of
play could stand the beating he would by taking
every snap.


The Gators or Tigers could
wind up playing for the na-
tional championship more
than likely against Southern
Cal.

Short Stuff:
Good luck to UNLV coach Lon Kruger, former
Gators coach, who underwent serious heart by-
pass surgery last week ... Insiders are buzzing
about Lakeland's John Brown, 6-2, 290, qualify-
ing as the seventh member of his Dreadnaughts
team to make it with Florida after passing his
qualifying exam ... My friend Tony Barhhart of
the Atlanta Journal-Constitution ranks the SEC
quarterbacks thusly: Andre Woodson, senior;
Kentucky; Erik Ainge, senior, Tennessee;
Matthew Stafford, sophomore, Georgia; Tim
Tebow, sophomore, Florida; John Parker Wilson,
junior, Alabama.
Bumper sticker, T-shirt or sign:
1. Give me ambiguity or give me something
else.
2. I smile because I am your friend! I laugh be-
cause there is nothing you can do about it.
3. Talk is cheap until you hire a lawyer.
Today's joke:
A woman came home, screeching her car into
the driveway and ran into the house. She
slammed the door and shouted at the top of her
lungs, "Honey, pack your bags. I won the lottery!"
The husband said, "What should I pack, beach
stuff or mountain stuff?"
"Doesn't matter," she said. "Just get out."
And good morning...
... to my old buddy Steve Spurrier, who con-
tinues to vote for Duke at No. 25 in the coaches
poll until the Blue Devils lose (which is usually
right away). May you never give in to those thin-
skinned critics who lack a sense of humor.

Dear Dixie County Citizens:

The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 re-
quires that parents be notified if their child attends a Ti-
tle I school, that does not make Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP). In Dixie County, our Title I schools are Anderson
Elementary School and Old Town Elementary School and
Old Town Elementary School.

Schools that receive funding under Title I, Part A, of The
No Child Left Behind Act, must meet 100% of the targets,
for "Adequate Yearly Progress: (AYP) in each subject area.
During the 2006-07 school
year both elementary schools
had significant learning
TY OF gains and improved their
State Grade. Anderson Ele-
mentary did not make the
S100% requirement of federal
AYP; thus, it has been identi-
EDURES fled as a school "In Need of
Improvement/Corrective Ac-
tion."


Employees, applicants for employment, bargaining units and the general
public have access to available grievance procedures for complaints of dis-
crimination and / or harassment for employees and applicants for employ-
ment by contacting the Personnel Office of Dixie District Schools.

VI. ADJOURN


The District Office also works for the continuous improve-
ment of our schools by providing;

Strong, stable district leadership;
High quality instructional materials and professional de-
velopment for our teachers and staff;
Reading coaches
Technical assistance as needed
Model classrooms
Assistance in the development of a focused school im-
provement plan.

The District is required to offer parents 'meaningful
choice options' if their child attens a Title I school that
has not made AYP. Because the district is a "single feeder
district." The Transportation with Choice option is flot
possible. The Dixie County School District will offer the
following two options for the 07-08 school year:

Student will continue to participate I the academic pro-
gram he/she is currently enrolled in;
Student will participate in a Supplemental Education Ser-
vices after-school tutoring program

According to NCLB guidelines, the District is required to
prioritize students for Supplemental Education Services
based on (1) lowest academic performance and (b) free
and reduced lunch status when delivering these services.
Dixie District has funds to provide, services to one hun-,,-
dred and eight (108) students. Therefore. if more students,',
apply than available funding, parents are advised that
first priority must be given to the lowest performing stu-
dents from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Parents will be sent a letter if their child meets the crite-
ria for supplemental educational serves (after-school tu-
toring program). A district-wide Provider Fair is planned
for 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 14th at the Old Town Ele-
mentary Cafetorium. It will give parents an opportunity
to meet the State approved providers for our district be-
fore making the best decision for your child. Title I
schools will also have materials available during their
Open House to further assist parents with this decision.
Parents are asked to contact their child's school (Old
Town Elementary @ 542-7818 or Anderson Elementary
School @ 498-6200) or the District Title I Office @ 498-6288
if they need to discuss their child's educational options in
more detail. The Dixie County School District is commit-
ted to providing every student with the highest quality ed-
ucation possible. Working together, we can ensure that all
students succeed a the highest levels.

Respectfully,

Dennis Bennett
Superintendent of Schools.

I. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED ACTIVITY
The U.S. Army Corp -of Engineers (US-
ACOE>, applied on January 31, 2006 to the Depart-
ment of Emnrunmental Protection for an environ-
mental resource permit/water quality certification
and requested authorization to use sovereignty sub-
merged I-nds owned by the Board ol Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Trust Fund (Board of
Trustees) to dredge 16U.000 cubic yards, of material
from The federally authorized nav itat ion channel Mc-
Griff Pass. also Hnown as Wadley Pass, within the
open waters of the Gulfl of Nexico and the lower
Suwannee River. DLxie Count'. The channel dredge
area is to be 2 5 miles long lit' 75 fr-et wide by 6 feet
d(ip plus iMe l1nt of ath ani'ed m: intenance dredging
plus one foul of overdepil dredging for a total depth
of i' feet front the existing substrate elevation.
The proposed project includes the construction of a
19.05 acre upland dredged material disposal sitelocat-
ed approximately 4 miles northeast of the dredge
area, 50 feet north from the County Road 349 right-of-
way This site and a majority of the surrounding
property, Is currently owned by the Suwannee River
Water Management District and contains a mixture
of habitats including, sandy uplands, swampy open
water depressions yellow pine plantation, herba-
ceous wetlands, and wastewater spray fields operated
by the Suwannee Wastewater Treatment Plant. With-
in the disposal area, 10-foot dikes would be construct-
ed to contain up to 242,188 cubic yards of dredged ma-
terial. The disposal area capacity allows for a bulki ng
factor of approximately 1.5 over the dredged iquantitv
The disposal area would be periodically offloaded to
-provide capacity for the maintenance dredging events
at sewn-year intervals.
The requested authorizations to use sovereignty sub-
merged lands owned by the Board of Trustees for the
dredging of the federally authorized navigation chan-
nel, and the severance of sovereign material associat-
ed with the dredging, was previously approved by the
Board of Trustees on May 3, 2003. The proposed pro-
ject. also includes a request for authorization to use
sovereignty submerged lands for the temporary
placement of a pipeline to transport dredged materi-
al from the point of dredging across sovereignty sub-
merged lands, including Salt Creek, to the upland dis-
posal site.
The dre'lging activity shall be located in sections 35
and 36, township 13 south, range 11 east, Class II and
IIm I waters, within conditionallyrestricted and pro-
hibited Shellfish Harvesting Area within the Big
Bend Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve, an Outstanding
Florida Water excepting the limits of the navigation
channel that are not within the boundaries of the
aquatic preserve pursuant to section 258.40(2), P.S.,
DiJxie County The upland disposal site construction
activity is located in section 16, township 13 south,
range 12 east on the East Quadrangle in Dixie County
not .within a Shellfish Harvesting Area, not within
the Big Bend Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve, and not
within an Outstanding Florida Water.
II. AUTHORITY FOR REVIEW
The Department has permittin authority
under Part IV of Chapter 373, ES., and Chapters. 62-
330, 62-341 and 62-343, EA.C. The activity is not ex-
empt from the requirement to obtain an environmen-
tal resource permit. Pursuant to Operating Agree-
\ ments executed between the Department and the wa-
ter management districts. as referenced in Chapter
62-113, EA.C., the Department is responsible for re-
viewing this application. ,In addition, the project has
been reviewed under a Coordination Agreement Be-
tween the US Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville
District, and the Department for a State Programmat-
ic General Permit (SPGP) pursuant to Section 10 of
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 and Section 401 of
the Clean Water Act although no SPOP authorization
Is required to be issued as the applicant is the US-
ACOE itself.
The activity also requires a proprietary authoriza-
tion, as it is located on sovereignty submerged lands
S owned by the Board of Trustees. The activity is not
exempt from the need to obtain a proprietary autho-
rization. Pursuant to Article X, Section 11 of the
Florida Constitution, sections 253.002 and. 253.77, ES.,
sections 18-21.00401, 18-21,0051, and 62-343.075, EA.C.,
and the Operating Agreemerits executed between the
Department and the water management districts, as
referenced in Chapter 62-113. EA.C., the Department
has the responsibilitv to review and take final action
on this request lur proprietary authorization..
II. BACKGROUND/BASIS FOR ISSUANCE
A. cGeneral
The project area is located along a 2.5 mile
section of the lower Suwannee River and the open wa-
ters of the Gulf of Mexico in Dixie County Florida.
The headwaters of the Suwannee River reach into
Georgia and drain about 800 square miles of the Oke-
fenokee Swamp. The river flows southwesterly ap-
proximately 200 m tiles from the Florida-Georgia state
line and forms a boundary for Columbia, Hamilton,
Madison, Suwannee, Lafay tte, Gllchrist, Dixie, and
Levy counties before emptying into the Gulf of Mexi-
Sco. The mouth of the river is approximately 115 miles
north of Tampa Bay and 12 miles north of Cedar Key


The Suwannee River is the second largest
(lischargingi riv.nr In Florida and the majorfreshwater
source for m- Suwannee River Estuary. A "bird's
foot" river delta has formed at the mouth of the
Suwannee River as a result of a low-slope coastal
shelf and freshwater discharge from the river. East
Pass which meanders in a southerly direction to-
wards the Gulf of Mexico, is about 800 ft wide and
typically 20 ft deep. Less than a mile downstream
from the town of Suwannee, West Pass subdivides
into Northern Pass, Alligator Pass, and Wadley Pass.
Alligator Pass is about 600 ft wide and is typically 3-6
ft deep at high tide. Wadley Pass is about 300 ft wide,
and is typically 7-10 ft deep at high tide. The upper es-
tuary is subject fi mlpil semidiurnal tides, common-
ly experiencing two unequal high and two unequal
low tides that occur every 6.2 hours.
Maintenance dredging has occurred on several occa-
sions to maintain the constructed project dimensions.


The USACOE has performed maintenance dredging
in Alligator and Eagle Pass during past dredging op-
erations. USACOE has not participated In dredging of
Wadley Pass since it was authorized. Multiple dredge
events occurred from 1902 to 1986 during which time
disposal of shoal material Involved disposal on either
side of the channel and in areas along the shoreline
that had historically experienced erosion. Islands in
the river also served as placement areas for dredged
material. These islands have become vegetated and
provide habitat for a variety of terrestrial and avian
species.
A number of biological communities exist
within the area in which the project is proposed.
These include; the Suwannee Sound, tidal marshes,
tidal river swamp, maritime hammocks, mixed wet-
land forest, pine plantation, and cvpress swamp for-
est.
Suwannee Sound is bordered by a discontinuous oys-
ter reef system known as the Great Suwannee Reef
that extends approximately 20 miles from Cedar Key
in the south to Horseshoe Beach in the north. The
reef, which mam be considered to be the outer limit of
the Suwanne- R 'Ier estuary, is submerged at high
iide hut expised at low tide. 'Suwannee Sound is
characterized by shallow coastal sand/mud/shell
flats interspersed with oyster bars and reefs. The
sound is shallow, one to two meters deep. but with oc-
casional holes several meters deep. Benthic inverte-
brates include a variety of estuarine crustaceans, an-
nelids, and mollusks. The area is commercially im-
portant for aquaculture; bottoms are leased to indi-
viduals for the commercial culture of clams. In Sep-
tember 2001 to March 2002 the project area was sur-
\-eved b\ USACOE for oyster beds and submerged
aquatic veretaiion. The results of this survey indi-
cated mall pock.-ts of ephemeral submerged aquatic
vegetation along the edge of, and within the Federal.
navigation channel with a total coverage of approxi-
mately 0.5 acres.
Much of the lii-r-a considered for wetland mitigation
consists of tree plantations that have been recently
har'vet ed, site-prepared, and planted in pine.
Forestry management in the area involves the planti-
ng of southern yellow pines, predominately slash and
loblolly. Isolated cypress swamps occur in depres-
sions Interspersed throughout the area. These de-
iavssuions are normally pounded for more than six
monntis nf the year and have an overstory of cypress,
red maple, sweetbay, and Florida willow.
The FHl idlnhin aqui'ttii system In Dixie County has
had an exceedance of the drinking water standard
for sodium since 1985. Sodium exceedance Is mostly
due to marine influences In the Gulf Coastal Low-
lands. In the project area, the Floridian aquifer is un-
confinied where limestone is at or near the land sur-
face. The aquifer is recharged directly from percolat-
ing rainfall, since the only sediment overlying the
aquifer is saturated sand. The majority of the flow oc-
curs. in the upper few hundred feet of the aquifer. A
thin sandy clayey unconfined surficial aquifer allows
recharge through percolation of rainwater yielding
fresh water to a smaller percentage of dwellings. Sur-
ficial aquifer water Is acidic and has high relative val-
ues for sodium, chloride, and nitrate. Dredge, Materi-
al Management Area designs similar to that proposed
for the mesohaline Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway
demonstrated no conductivity enrichment in the ad-
jacent surficial aquifer. Consequently little risk of
such enrichment at the subject site is expected.

USACOE determined that the project would be 75 ft
wide and 6 ft deep with 2 ft of allowable overdepth. A
bathymetric survey was performed for the project
area in January 2006. The federal navigation project
area was divided into 11 segments, or cuts. USACOE
generated a second set of calculations to determine
te total volume of material to be dredged. Volume
computations were analyzed for design depth (6 ft),
design depth plus one (7 ft), and design depth pus two
(8 ft) for each cut. The use of a hydraulic dredge may
be required for this project subsequent to the Depart-
ment's review of information provided by USACOE
as required of Attachment A of the permit. The two
primary types of hydraulic dredges which may be uti-
Ilred :;re the rulterhead pipeline dredge and the self-
propellei -hopper dredge. Cutterhead pipeline,
dredges can pump directly to a disposal site, dredge
almost continuously, and dredge some types of rock
without blasting.
Dredging to restore the original dimensions of
Wadley Pass to a width of 75 ft and a depth of 6 ft will
require removal of 160,000 cy of dredged material
(clean sand). Dredged material would be pumped to
the disposal site through a pipeline of approximately
18-Inch ID (nlhner diameter). A pontoon-supported
pipeline would follow the existing channel of Salt
Creek, through a tributary to CR 349, where it would
proceed to the Town of Suwannee Water Treatment
Plant. From this location, the pipeline would proceed
along the northern side of CR 349 within the right-of-
way to the disposal site. The dredge discharge (or
Slurry inflow) pipeline route would traverse approxi-
mately 6.5 miles, of which approximately 2.1 miles
are over land and approximately 4,4 miles are over
open water. Approximately four 800-hp booster
pumps spaced approximately 6,600 ft apart would be
placed along the pipeline, as needed.
A sump at the disposal site would collect saltwater
from the dewatering of the dredged material. A pump
of approximately 800 hp would move the saltwater
through a return line to the roadside canal adjacent
to CR 349 near the Town of Suwannee Water Treat-
ment Plant. The effluent discharge (or return clean ef-
fluent) pipeline route would traverse approximately
3.8 miles, of which approximately 2.1 miles are over
land and approximately 1.7 miles are over surface wa-
ters. All pipes, booster pumps, and associated equip-
ment would be transported via truck. Assembly and
maintenance of the influent and effluent pipelines
would be from the roadway during dredging opera-
tions and would stay within CR 349 right-of-way with
the use of flagmen for safety and traffic control as
well as concrete barriers. The width of the roadway
varies before the surface waters but averages approx-
imately 23 ft with a right-of-way width of approxi-
mately 83 ft (approximately 80 ft on either side of
county road). When encountering roads along the
path of the pipeline. either trenches or ramps will be
utilized to increase safety, decrease traffic problems,
and lessen public nuisance,
The disposal site is located in Section 16 of Township
13 South, Range 12 East on the East Pass Quadrangles
(1954, PR 1993) in Dixie County, Florida. The disposal
site area covers 19.05 acres and is situated alongside
and approximately 50 ft from the County Road (CR)
349 right-of-way While the USACOE has not devel-
oped final design plans and specifications for the
dredged material disposal site it has developed a con-
ceptual construction methodology and preliminary
design as described below. The final design plans and
specifications can not be provided until permits are
received and contract bids fur the proposed work are
solicited. However, the final plans and specifications
are to be developed in accordance with the USACOE's
"Confined Disposal of Dredged Material Engineer
Manual" dated September 30 1987.The final design
plans and specifications must be submitted to, and ap-
proved by the Department, prior to the commence-
ment of construction activities.
Within the disposal area, 10-foot dikes would be con-
strtcted to contain up to 242,183 cy of dredged mater-
ial. The disposal area capacity allows for bulking fac-
tor of approximately 1.5 over the dredged quantity
which is considered adequate for the sandy material
to be dredged. The disposal area would be periodical-
ly offloaded to provide capacity for the maintenance
dredging events at seven-year intervals. The offloaded
material would be available for beneficial uses in lo-
cal construction uses. Dredged material would be
pumped to the site through a pipeline. The pipeline
would be a floating, pontoon-supported pipeline or a
sunken, secured pipeline and would be routed
through the existing channel of Salt Creek, through a
tributary to CR 349 to the Town of Suwannee Water
STreatment Plant. From this location, the pipeline
would proceed along the northern side of CR 349


within the right-of-way approximately six miles to the
disposal site. The dredge discharge pipeline route
would traverse approximately six miles over land
from the mouth of Salt Creek to the disposal area.
Booster pumps would be placed a long ih pipeline, as
needed. When encountering roads along he path of
the pipeline, either trenches or ramps would be uti-
lized to Increase safety, decrease traffic problems, and
lessen public nuisance.
The footprint of the dike, plus a 10-foot margin be-
yond its outer edges, and the interior of the im-
poundment, will be cleared and grubbed at the outset
of construction. The clearing and grubbing will in-
clude the complete removal and disposal of timber,
bushes, stumps, roots, rubbish and debris and all oth-
er obstructions resting on or protruding through the
ground surface. Organic soils mantling these areas


Under this intent to issue, the permit and intent to
grant a sovereignty submerged lands lease modifica-
tion, are hereby granted subject to the USACOE's
compliance with any requirement in this intent to
publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of gener-
al circulation and to provide proof of such publica-
tion In accordance with section 50.051 of the Florida
Statutes. This action is final and effective on the date
filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a suffi-
cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely

will also be stripped. Within upland areas, it is antic-
ipated that this will require the removal of about six
to 12 inches of surficial soils. Shallow probes made
within the wetland areas shows these areas to be
mantled by about six to 24 inches of unsuitable or-
ganic soil which must be removed prior to dike con-
struction, or excavation of borrow materials.
Following clearing, grubbing and stripping, the dike
footprint (plus lateral margin) shall be densifled in
situ in order to develop uniform density and to detect
possible signs of instability such as pumping, weav-
ing or shoving of the shallow subsoils. Ifinstability
of this type occurs, it would likely be an indication of
the presence of weak and compressible soils within
the depth of influence of the roller. Correction of this
condition may include excavation of the weak soils
followed by replacement with structural fill meeting
the placement, gradation and compaction require-
ments of the final specifications.
The in sit u dlensifi.'ation i intended to identify soft or
weak, soil areas and. to uniformly densify the dike
foundation soils. According to the USACOE the re-
sults of the borings indicate that the ground surface
should be generally firm and unyielding during the m
situ densification. If groundwater levels are near ex-
isting grades at the time of construction, it may be
necessary to place an initial two-foot () thick lift of
fill prior to the densification process.
Upon completion of the site preparation activities,
embankment construction wil proceed. The em-
bankment may be constructed using the on-site
source materials provided that they contain not more
than four percent organic mater (by dry weight) and
are free of roots, logs, refuse arid any other such dele-
terious matter. Based upon results found by the US-,
ACOE during the field exploration, it is not anticipat-
ed for the need to selectively remove the encountered
clayey soils with respect to the dike construction. It
is expected that these soil types will be blended with
the predominant clean sand during excavation and
placement thereby resulting in a mixture with less
than 12 percent fines (passing the U.S. Standard No.
200 sleve). However, performance based quality con-
trol measures shall be employed by USACOE to as-
sure the uniformity of the dike fills.
The embankment (structural) fill should generally
consist of sands with not more than 12 percent pass-
ing the U.S. Standard No. 200 sieve and have no parti-
cle-size larger than three inches. The fill should be
placed in loose lifts not exceeding 12 inches in un-
compacted thickness and should be uniformly densi-
fled to at least 100 percent of the Standard Proctor
maximum dry density The embankment fill should
be placed and compacted at a moisture content with-
in two percent of the optimum moisture content de-
termined by the-Standard Proctor test. According to
the USACOE the settlement is expected to occur near-
ly as rapidly as the load is applied (dike constructed)
given the granular composition of the dike and foun-
dation soils.
For the preliminary conceptual design, a 10-foot high
embankment with its sideslopes inclined at 2:1 (hori-
zontal:vertical) should have a minimum factor of
safety In excess of 2.0 at the end-of-construction (i.e.,
no spoil or water impounded). This design would pro-
duce a disposal area with a capacity of up to 242,000
cy which is sufficient for the projected dredging vol-
ume of 160,000 cy plus a bulking factor of 1.5.
USACOE will submit to the Department pri-
or to the commencement of construction activities
the information outlined In Attachment A of the per-
mit for the Department's review and approval. How-
ever; the Department and USACOE may amend the
information required of Attachment A if both deter-
mine that such is appropriate. Specifically, such
amendment does not negate the assurances required
of the Department In its issuance of the permit and
that such modification of Attachment A does not fur-
ther any resource impact not already contemplated
by the Department.
B. Specific Regulatory Basis for Issuance
Through the above and based on the gener-
al/limiting and specific conditions to the permit, the
USACOE has provided affirmative reasonable assur-
ance that the construction and operation of the activ-
ity, considering the direct, secondary and cumulative
impacts, will comply with the provisions of Part IV of
Chapter 373, ES., and the rules adopted thereunder,
including the Conditions for Issuance or Additional
Conditions for Issuance of an environmental re-
source permit, pursuant to Part IV of Chapter 373,
ES., Chapters 62-330, and Sections 40C-4.301 and 40C-
4.302, EA.C. The construction and operation of the
activity will not result In violations of the water qual-
ity standards set forth in Chapters 62-4 62-302, 62-520,
62-522, and 62-550, EA.C. The USACOE has also
demonstrated that the construction of the activity, in-
cluding a consideration of the direct, secondary, and
cumulative Impacts, is not contrary to the public In-
terest, pursuant to paragraph 373.414(l)(a), ES.
In addition, the Department has deter-
mined, pursuant to Section 38-0651(3Xe), ES., that
the facility is located so that It will not adversely im-
pact Outstanding Florida Waters or Class II waters,
and will not contribute to boat traffic in a manner
that will adversely impact the manatee.
C. Specific Proprietary Basis for Issuance
Through the above and based on the special condi-
tions to the lease the USACOE has met all applicable
requirements for proprietary authorizations to use
sovereignty submerged lands, pursuant to Article X,
Section 11 of the Florida Constitution, Chapter 258,
ES., and associated rule 18-21, FA.C. The USACOE
has provided reasonable assurance that the activity:
(1) is "not contrary to the public interest";
(2) ill maintain essentially existing conditions;
(3) will not cause adverse impacts to fish and wildlife
resources or public
ro caiation or navigation; and
(4) %% I11 not intrf, crp with the riparian rights of adja-
cent property owners.
In addition, the project is consistent with the goals
and objectives of the "Conceptual State Lands Man-
agement Plan" adopted by the Board of Trustees on
March 17, 1981, and as modified on March 15, 1988..
IV, PUBLICATICiON OF NOT'rIE
The Department has determnlnetl that the proposed
.ctivitv: because of ILs sir,, pIut'ntial fTecti on the en-
vironment or the public. cuntiruversial nature,. or lo-
cation, is likely to have a heightened public concern
or likelihood of request for administrative proceed-
ings. Therefore, pursuant to Section 373:413(4), ES.,
and section 62 343.090(2)(k), EA.C., you (the USACOE)
are required to publish at your own expense the en-
closed Notice of Intent to Issue. The notice is re-
qulred to be published one time within 30 days, in the
legal ad section of a newspaper of general circulation
in the area affected. For the purpose of this rule,
"publication in a newspaper of general circulation in
the area affected" means publication in a newspaper
meeting the requirements of sections 50.011 and
50.031, ES. in the county where the activity is to take
place. The USACOE shall |irovile proof of pibilla-.
flon to:
Department of Environmental Protection
Submerged Lands and Environmental Resources
7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B200
Jacksonville, Florida 32256-7590
The proof of publication shall be provided to the
above address within seven days of publication. Fall-
ure to publish the notice and provide proof of publi-
cation within the allotted time shall be grounds for
denial of the permit and lease to use sovereign sub-
merged lands.
V RIGHTS OF A FFErTED) PARTI ES


tition is not timely filed, the permit and authorization
to use sovereignty submerged lands will be issued as
a ministerial action, and any required lease or ease-
ment will be executed. The actual terms of any re-
quired lease or easement will be formally executed at
a later date and shall include provisions for rents and
such other provisions as normally are included in
such lease or easement. Because an administrative
hearing may result in the reversal or substantial mod-
ification of this action, the USACOE is advised not to
commence construction or other activities until the
deadlines noted below for filing a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing or request for an extension of
time have expired and until the permit and propri-
etary authorization have been issued and any re-
quired lease or easement has been executed and de-
livered.
Mediation is not available,
A person whose substantial interests are affected by
the Department's action may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth below and must be
filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 8900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida Administrative
Code, a person whose substantial interests are affect-
ed by the Department's action may also request an ex-
tensi on of time to file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for good. cause shown,
grant the request for an extension of time. Requests
for extension of time must be filed with the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Flori-
da 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A time-
ly request for extension of time shall toll the running
of the time period for filing a petition until the re-
quest is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the De-
partment may still grant it upon a motion by the re-
questing party showing that the failure to file a re-
quest for an extension of time before the deadline was
te result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by the outcome of the ad-
ministrative process havethe right to petition to in-
tervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be per-
mitted only at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code.
In accordance with rules 28-106.111(2) and 62-
110.106(3Xa)4, petitions for an administrative hearing
by the USACOE must be filed within 14 days of re-
ceipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than the USACOE, and other than those
entitled to written notice under section 120.60(3) of
the Florida Statutes must be filed within 14 days of
publication of the notice or within 14 days of receipt
of the written notice, whichever occurs first Under
section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, however, any
person who has asked the Department for notice of
agency action may file a petition within 14 days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the
USACOE at the address indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file a petition for
an administrative hearing within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which
the Department's action Is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:
(a) The name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or identification number,
if known;

screen. When the ambu-
lance arrives at the hospi-
tal. the system generates a
narrative and prints out a
totally complete run re-
port. At the end of each
shift, medics upload all
data to the Host system,
which will provide quality
assurance reporting on
patient care issues and re-
sponse times as well as
monthly uploads of all re-
quired data to the state.
Then, the billing data is
uploaded to the billing
software from the Host.
When the billing uploads
take place, the billing sys-
tem downloads nine dif-
ferent databases back to
the Remotes. Therefore, if
a patient rides one ambu-
lance today, tomorrow all
ambulances have the pa-
tient's billing and medical
history information.

Passenger Ejected

According to FHP (Florida Highway Patrol), April Knight and a passenger were injured in the early
morning hours of August 2. Ms. Knight was traveling westbound oniCR-351 as her vehicle ran off
the roadway and struck a small oak tree. As the vehicle turned, the front seat passenger was ejected
from the vehicle. The vehicle finally came to rest with the rear wedge against an oak tree, setting the
Ford Explorer at a 45 degree angle, with the front touching the ground. The injured passengers were
transported to the hospital by Dixie County Emergency Services.
