clue one. He told us that the games against Newberry have tradition-
all .been very competitive, but, if we can hold aff their offense. we
definitely have a shot winning this one as well. -If we can make it .-
close gainme, it will work in our favor." he said
What about Madison? "The only team we play this year that is in a

Coach Wilkerson, "but, as we don't play them untd oudt 10th game. ve
still have time to make enough improvements to beat them."

spoke about the long
lasting great relation-

discussions'of some
topics including Iraq,
security, education, in-

power for personal
gain, and this needs to
change... -Allen Boyd


surance and most of all the process of cleaning up corrup-
tion within the government agencies. It was the American
people that sent a message to change things, and Boyd
wants this to occur, and is working hard for it. He stated
that corruption is due to officials using their power for per-
sonal gain, and this needs to change. Another of the main
Snn int-'awosrtoiake clear was his view on illegal'
imirnigrants and the fact that he does not support them be-
ing eligible for any ins urance benefits.
The Congressman visited with many folks in Dixie County
on h is recent visit. After lunch with the Rotary Club in Cross
City. he and aides Travis Hart and J.W Mikell traveled to
Suwannee for a briefing by the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District, Army Corps of Encineers and Florida De-
partnient of Environmental Protection on the NMcGriff re-
dredging project
In the 1880's the East Pass w\as destinated as the navigable
waterway in Siwannee in 19-4 the McGriff Channel was
dredged and through the i-.tfrts i:,f the Suwannee River Au-
thority. State funds w-re secured in 196t_ for the re-dredging.
That entity dissolved in 198:. In 1990 a re-designation as a
Federal~ waterway made the chang.- from the East Pass to Mc-
Griff Channel occurred. Much time and efforts have been ex-
pended by many departjnents. agencies and even citizens to
return this Channel to a safe. navigable waterway. and all are
looking forward to the completi:)n.
It is an honor to have a man with integrity and honesty
working for the American people. and working for the State
of Florida. Dixie County wants to thank Congressman
Allen Boyd for his visit anl wie look forward to growing an
even stronger relationship with him rn the future.


SCounlty Bears Players Of The Week


Offensive Player Of I he Week:
Buddy Philmon

SCH 3--DIo IT :'I-. 3 O-J ,, ,


PO BOX 1Oi
GAINESVILLE- FL .J.. w


Offensive Player
Of The Week
Buddy Philmon, a'DCHS senior, was
nominated as offensive player of the
week. He has made two catches this
season, for a total of 55 yards, Coach
Wilkerson says he is also a commend-
able blocker. On one of those extraor-
dinary plays, he ran the ball 40 yards,
all the way to the 9 yard line. Buddy is
also an excellent student, and is the
State Beta Club President.

With this great receiver on the team,
the Dixie County Bears can hardly fail
to continue to succeed this season.


Defensive Player Of I he Week:
I Earl Aiken


Defensive Player
Of The Week
Earl Aiken is a junior at DCHS and Coach
Wilkerson says that he is also a great stu-
dent. He has been nominated defensive
player of the week for making 7 tackles,
when you add to that the 2 interceptions
and one fumble recovery the result is one
excellent addition to the Dixie County de-
fense.

The coach told us that Earl Aiken main-
tains a GPA that is well over 3.0, and with
such a time consuming extra-curricular
activity as football to keep his time occu-
pied, that is no small feat. Great work Mr.
Aiken!

Romance blossoms in
the strangest places
United States Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho) has
indicated that he will resign at the end of this month as a
result of a scandal arising out of charges that he got too
friendly with an undercover police officer in a public re-
stroom.
Senator Craig insists that he is "not gay," howev-
er what allegedly took place on June l1u..,a men,,. _- -_j
room at a M\innoapolls airport doesn't soupncl so1Qnkme-,
thing you'd expect of someone who did not at least have
some peculiar urges tucked way in his libido.
According to the arresting officer, the two met on
opposite sides of the wall separating two stalls in the fa-
cility. Craig started playing footsie through the gap at
the lower end of the wall, then reached his hand under
the wall and delivered some signal that people familiar
with that culture would recognize as an invitation to pro-
ceed with a romantic liaison.
Yeah, it sounds weird. But according to the Min-
neapolis Police Dept., that stuff goes on at the airport
men's room all the time, thus the stakeout by the vice
squad.
One might expect those who argue that the gay
lifestyle is "normal" to explain the logic behind looking
for romance in a public toilet. Most any city of any size
will have a gay bar. (Some towns have so many that it's
hard to find one that caters to straights, but we won't em-
barrass anybody's chamber of commerce by starting a
list.) Obviously, the bar scene tends not to be the best
place for straights to find soul-mates, either, but it cer-
tainly beats propositioning strangers in community com-
fort stations.
Senator Craig has said that his big mistake was
pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charge involved. No,.
Senator, your biggest mistake was looking for "romance"
with another guy, a total stranger at that, in a public rest
room. Anybody who would engage in this sort of activity
ought to be considered a pervert, even by persons who
are tolerant of the homosexual lifestyle.
It has even been suggested that the vice squad
stake-out amounted to "entrapment." Wrong. It would
have been entrapment if the cop had started the footsie
game and followed pp with the hand signals, but that's
not what happened.
Craig's Senate colleagues were correct in encour-
aging him to resign, and he did the right thing by doing
so. This should not hurt the Republican Party's status in
the closely-divided Senate, as Idaho's governor is a Re-
publican who will presumably appoint someone of his
own party to finish out Craig's term, possibly his lieu-,
tenant governor.
What irks me about this is that Larry Craig prob-
ably wouldn't have gotten the pressure to resign if he'd
been a Democrat. Don't consider this a broad-based put-
down on that party, but consider the scandals involving
Representative Barney Frank and Senator Edward
Kennedy, to mention but two. All right, Republican Mark
Foley of Florida made headlines over sexual misconduct
just before the 2006 election and no doubt contributed to
his party's losses; but at least he resigned. Kennedy and
Frank are still with us, and presumably will be until they
decide to retire.
Consider also former President Bill Clinton,
whose scandals kept the tabloids occupied for nearly a
decade. At his impeachment trial, not a single Democrat-
ic senator voted to remove him from office, though many
had previously gone on with fiery eloquence in their
condemnation of his behavior.
Of course, that's just as well. Had Clinton left of-
fice, Al Gore would have taken over, run with the advan-
tage of incumbency in 2000, and by now, toilet paper ra-
tioning would be a reality And that could have proven to
be most inconvenient for Senator Craig's romantic en-
deavors.


Calling all Seniors
Recently I had an article in letters to the Editor as to how us Seniors
are being discriminated against because we cannot get any credit
because we never accumulated any debt, so I thought I would con-
tinue with my tale of woes to my current status, Back in May of this
year IU went to North Georgia on vacation and found out that my
three granddaughters ages 4, 5, and 7 years of age were desperate-
ly needed a new and better home since I have been trying for six
years now to make this happen, I filed an emergency deprivation or-
der in Juvenile court and was appointed a court appointed attorney
and received custody of my granddaughters. Since it is quite a
chore for a seventy year old senior to care for three girls this age I
spent nine hundred dollars for my fifteen hundred dollar income to
purchase a mobile home large enough to care for the girls and
hopefully a place for a Nanny also, But I didn't have enough left to
pay for the money needed for the fees the building dept. needs to
have my mobile home changed out. And although my accumulated
assists are around two hundred thousand I am not able to accumu-
ate the building Dept.is Feels when all I hear is money, money,
noney all I ask for is to be able to make monthly payments to some-
one so I can and a nanny. I do not ask nor do I expect anything free
ust a chance to be able to live the life style I have always lived.

Dear Sheriff Hatcher:

I am very humbled and grateful for the
conduct and kindness of two of your fine
deputies Mark Garcia and Car yn Hall.
These extraordinary officers wh ddis-
played warmth, compassion and generosi-
ty in their recent visit to us over the Labor
Day weekend, and were kind enough to
provide us with food when we Iad nothing
aside from a can of tuna to tideaus over for


Friends of the Great Suwannee Reef, Save Our Suwannee, Suwannee
Audubon members and anyone concerned with eco-threats to the
Suwannee River:
Several hours ago I happened to meet Congressman Allen Boyd in
the parking lot of the restaurant in which the Rotary Club was having
its monthly luncheon and he was the guest speaker.
I took the opportunity to inform Mr. Boyd that for years my e-mails
and phone calls about the dredging of McGriff's Pass have been ig-
nored, gone unacknowledged, or have not been returned by his of-
fice. (From 2003 through 2006, I was the Web master for Friends of
the Great Suwannee Reef, and opposition to the dredging of McGriff's
Pass was the primary focus of ourWeb site and e-mails). Yet both he
and his aide said that they have never heard of Friends of the Great
Suwannee Reef, Save Our Suwannee, Suwannee Audubon or any oth-
er opposition to the dredging of the Suwannee River.

Mr. Boyd said that this was the first he had heard of any local opposi-
tion to the project since he began working on it in 1998. However,
Friends of the Great Suwannee Reef was founded in 1998 by Dixie
County State Republican Committeeman George C. Anderson specifi-
cally to oppose the dredging project. George .used two lobbyists to
keep abreast of the project's progress, and he directed the opposition
until his death in 2006. Congressman; Boyd is Democrat, as is a
large majority of Dixie County.
I presented the congressman with hard copies of the recent e-mails I
sent you and left with his assurance that he will read them. In order
that Congriessman Boyd might now be made aware of how you feel
about the dredging of McGriff's Pass, I ask you contact his office and
express you opposition to the project.

Tree Falls In

Suwannee

Gardens
Local Firefighters Work In Conjunction
With CFEC To Clear Roadway..


On Monday, September 3, a
fallen tree was reported by
Cathy Parsells. The oak had
toppled across SE 218th av-
enue, near where it is inter-
sected by SE 929th street in
the Suwannee Gardens, and
had brought down a power
line with it. When I arrived
Investigator Julie Herring,
with the Dixie County Sher-
iffs Department was already
on the scene and had blocked
the road to prevent any acci-
dents. Immediately a fire
truck from Old Town's Fire
and Rescue Station 21 came
around the corner. The fire
truck was, shortly, followed
,by a Central Florida Electric
Co-operative (CFEC) bucket
truck.
After disconnecting the pow-
er line from the transformer,
the CFEC technician had to
use a clamp and a hand
wench to remove tension
from the supporting wire be-
fore cutting it, and lowering


the pinned line to the,
ground.
With the wires removed,
firefighter Darryl Wilkerson
began to saw up the massive
obstruction, as Steve
Phillips, also with Fire and
Rescue Station 21, began the
long job of bearing off the
debris. As several of the logs
would be too largd to attempt
to move by hand, Rick Baker
returned to Fire and Rescue
Station 21, and brought back
with him Brush 22, which is
a highly specialized brush
fire response vehicle and is
equipped with an electric
wench.
Using Brush 22's wenching
capability, the Rick, Darryl,
and Steve quickly.cleared
the road of the remaining
large logs.
Great work!
-E. Loy


This is the oak tree that fell on Monday.
Buddy Parsells told us it had been hit by lightning
on a previous occasion.


Brush 22, with Rick Baker at the wheel, pulls logs
out of the road, as Darryl Wilkerson observes.

love and miss you so much.


















Picture -
When I look at you it hurts,
Still I have to sit and stare.
Your picture makes me wonder
What it is you do up there.
You are doing the Lord's work,
Of this there is no doubt,
But then I sit and wonder,
What is your work about?
Are you teaching others,
Still things about you I will miss.
The stars give off their wonderous shine,
That's how I know you're doing fine.
One day again we'll meet at last, -
The stars, the moon, our distant past.
The sun lets out'another sigh
As it tells the day goodbye.
Another day has come and gone,
Without you here it seems so long.
The moon gives off her gentle glow,
I see it shine and then I know,
There is more to life than just this.
Or are you here with me,
Guiding and protecting.

Love and miss you,
Mama, Punkin & Kenny

People


County Employees Get
Medical Savings Accounts


County employees health insurance is being changed
from PPO to HSA. County employees have been using
the PPO plan with Blue Cross Blue Shield for a long
time, and the County is now changing the county over
to a HSA (Health Savings Account) plan.
This is a high deductible health plan in conjunction
with a Health Saving Account. What this plan will do
is give each individual a savings account that will help
pay for current and future medical expenses. Dixie
County that will be putting $1,000 in this account each
year.
Each employee will receive their own savings account
in which they will have a debit card and checks they
can use to withdraw for their medical needs; even den-
tal expenses, braces, and glasses. Any money that is
not used will be rolled over from year-to-year. Even
though they will have a high deductible of $1,500.00,
they will be guaranteed never to spend over $500.00
of their own money. Whether one goes to the doctor
often or never goes at all, this plan is for them.


Horseshoe Library Bake Sale
Is A Sweet Success

Many Thanks to the participants of the Horseshoe Library bake
sale. Many wonderful cooks supplied us with an abundance of
cakes, cookies, brownies, pies and candy. The patrons proved
more than generous and several were repeat customers. The sale
was a huge success with bake sale receipts of $528 plus another
$520 received in donations.
Some customers stayed to visit and discuss plans for the Library
making it an enjoyable and informative day in spite of the rain.
If anyone else has special interests we would like to hear about
them. We hope to have something of interest for everyone. We
are starting to put together a calendar of events and are looking for
volunteers to demonstrate hobbies.
Thanks again to all people who have made the library possible.

WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE, Today was a special day at
Faith. Bro. Jackie -delivered a good message this morning and
Bro. Bobby Bryan this evening. Immediately following the morn-
ing service, there was a memorial service for Peggy Turner, fol-
lowed by a dinner in the fellowship hall for the family. Several
people gave testimonies about how Peggy had befriended them
and had given of herself to help them. It was a very touching
service. Three songs were sung that she had requested before
she passed away. Tommy McQueen sang "Angels in the Room",
Janet Osteen sang "Go Rest High on that Mountain" and the
Crenshaws sang "Let's Meet By the River", all at Peggy's request.
Those were her'favorite songs and we were all honored to do
them in hermemory.
Our seniors group (55 and over), are planning another outing for
September 20th and if you haven't signed up, please do so soon
as we need to give a count to the restaurant by September 17th.
A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board in the hall as you go
through the door behind the organ.
Our AWANA classes started last Wednesday with 23 children in
attendance and lots of wonderful workers. Remember to invite a
neighbor child, or a friend who has children to bring their' chil-
dren out for this wonderful program. Sometimes it's the only
opportunity these children have to learn about Jesus and God will
bless you for bringing them to Him. If you have any questions
about this program, or whether you can help in any way, see
Bro. Leonard Allen as he is directing the program here at Faith.
Remember to pray for the sick, the bereaved and most of all the
LOST this week. God hears and answers our prayers and how
He would bless you if someone was saved due to your invitation.
We'll be looking for you Wednesday night for Prayer Meeting and
again next Sunday for Sunday School and Church. In the mean-
time, may God keep you safe, happy and healthy.

Orea Brooks Hunnicutt

Macon, Georgia: Orea Brooks Hunnicutt, age 87,
went to be with her Lord on August 9, 2007.

Mrs. Hunnicutt was born in Griffin, Georgia, and
had lived in Macon most of her life. She was a
member of AARP and she loved music and spent
many of her Saturdays at Swampland Opry
House in Toombsboro, Georgia. She loved to
spend time with her family and she started work
at Bibb Manufacturing Comapny in 1942 and re-
tired at the age of 75 years old from Glen Raven.
She will be truly missed by her family and friends.

Survivors include her son Willie Eugene Jr.
(Theresa) Hunnicutt of Cross City, FL. Grand-
daughters; Gena H. (Victor) Stripling of Macon,
Georgia, and Janet P. Hunnicutt of Ellaville, Ga.
Great Grandson; Michael Stripling of Macon, Ga.
and great granddaughter, Paige Hunnicutt of I
Ellaville, Ga.

Labor Day Weekend Boot Drive

On Friday, September 31, Dixie County Volunteer Fire
Fighters held their annual Boot Drive to raise money for the MDA
(Muscular Dystrophy Association). Muscular Dystrophy is a ge-
netic disorder that weakens the body's muscles. Many people are
not aware of this disease, yet there are over a quarter of a million
children and adults that live with.it everyday of their lives. With
this disease the muscles are missing genes that help the muscle to
create new proteins, which muscles need in order to be healthy.
Over time the muscles weaken and many people loose their ability
to do normal daily activities, even walk.
There is no known cure for Muscular dystrophy. This is
why it is so important for people to be aware of the importance of
these donations. Fire Fighters across the country are helping to
give the boot to this disease and about 15 of our own in Dixie
County did the same. Fighting the rain and the heat for this great
cause, they raised $3,467.47. This was less than last year's amount
of $5,400.00, but next year may be even better.
As long as these great volunteer firefighters keep giving
their time and effort into this cause, with the generous donations
of the people, Dixie County will hopefully continue to be a great
supporter to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Lake Butler. He likes working in Dixie County, and enjoys its
laid back atmosphere. In his opinion, the people in this area
are very polite and courteous.
Dr. Ramadan still teaches and consults in Gainesville, and
has even traveled overseas to share his knowledge and skills.
The places he has traveled include Egypt, Pakistan, India,
and South America. In his free time he sometimes volunteers
as a counselor at the Vista Rehabilitation Center in
Gainesville. He told us that he would like to give drug and al-
cohol awareness lectures at local schools, and would like to
start a program allowing students from this area to examine
the inner workings of a medical office.
Tri-County Primary Care's offices are currently being up-
graded. When complete, the facility will have a total of eight
examination rooms, as well as a new break room for the fac-
ulty. They will also be improving the waiting area. Dr. Ra-
madan is hoping to have a gynecologist join his staff soon,
and is hoping to start pain management sessions as well.
With a friendly staff, and a broad range of skills all under
one roof, Dr. Ramadan is sure to continue to prosper well into
the future.

QtUq1TE1VS


5 Springhouse Quilter's Guild
was organized in 1992 by a
.small group of wonderful
S' quilters. One of these great
quilters is Onnie Mae
S Fowler. She has contin-
ued to be a member of this
quilt group and over the
years has made many
wonderful quilts, one of
most any kind and pattern
that might be thought up. She has had enough of her own work to hold her own private
quilt show at her home in Chiefland.
Ms. Onnie, as most call her, is shown in the picture above with one of her latest complet-
ed quilt projects. She showed this completed quilt during the monthly Springhouse meet-
ing on August 14. Ms. Onnie pieced the quilt but was unable to get it quilted because of
some recent eye problems. Two of the Springhouse guild members came to her rescue


and helped her get


Answer
Answer to question #243 is: True.
Many flowers have the ability to slowly
twist their leaves and stems just enough
to point leaves and other parts toward
the Sun. The Sun is important to flowers
because it gives them the energy they
need to grow. The process, called
photosynthesis, allows plants to convert
carbon dioxide.and water into glucose
(a form of sugar) and oxygen. The word
photosynthesis means "to build with
_ light."


the quilt
quilted and finished out. Ms. Onnie is very proud of her work and has
and continues to do some very beautiful quilting. Quilt members are
great friends and always will help a member-when a need arises.
The August workshop was a nine-patch technique taught by Anna
Gilliam. Approximately 14 quilt ladies attended the workshop and
made the quick-to-make, nine-patch pattern.
Tuesday continue to be a busy day for Springhouse quilters as they
continue to make items for the October quilt show. These items will be
available to the public in the gift shop.The gift shop items will make
wonderful gifts for a special person.

cal comedy by local playwright, Sandra Rose Zenner will be
performed at the Dixie County Cultural Center in the historic
Old Town School on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Septem-
ber 13, 14, and 15 at 7:30 PM.

and rollers played by Rick Gordon and Dottie South. With a tal-
ented supporting cast, Harry Amazon and Amy converge on the
Starlight Lounge for a final concert which includes Phil and the

Florida stays in Duop City, Florida.

Suwannee's
New Water
Treatment

Plant
Suwannee's New Water Treatment Plant
Project was officially started back in 2002.
Now, after years of anticipation, the plant is
physically taking shape.
Construction is moving along at a steady
pace, with the recent completion of the
220,000 gallon finished water storage tank, 12-
inch finished water pipeline, and 6-inch raw
water pipeline. At this time the new treat-
ment building is being constructed and will
be completed by the end of August. Every-
thing is on schedule at this time and, barring
any unforeseen complications the new plant
should be operational by the first of Febru-
ary 2008.
To go along with the new water treatment
plant, the community is also a new water dis-
tribution system. The Suwannee Water Im-
provement Group (SWIG) replaced a major
part of the distribution system last year. Now
the District is in the final phases of planning
and engineering to replace the remaining wa-


ter lines in the district. This project will in-
clude the installation of all hew water me-
ters; this will allow the district to accurately
measure the usage at each location. Current-
ly many of the meters are old, outdated, and
do not properly measure the amount of wa-
ter being used. The District will also be in-
stalling fire hydrants as required by current
building and safety codes; this will provide
needed fire protection in the entire district.
All of these needed improvements to our wa-
ter system are not without cost. The SWIG
project was completely paid for by the condo-
minium developers at a cost of approximate-
ly $675,000. The District has also been able to
cover much of the additional cost with
grants from the United States Department of
Agriculture Rural Development and State of
Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection. Still the District has had to assume a
portion of the cost for the improvements.
During the next few weeks the District will
hold a series of public meetings that will ad-
dress the rate increases needed to pay for the
. improvementsto the water system.
When everything is completed the communi-
.ty of Suwannee will have a state of the art
water treatment system providing high quali-
ty drinking water.

Dixie portsman EXPO

You Don't Want To Miss
This Family Outdoor Event

With just a few Weeks to go, EXPO event volunteers continue to sign up more vendors and take in
more prizes to be given away on the day of the event, Saturday, September 15th. Volunteers from
Dixie County's area churches and Cross Heir Ministries have been developing the. day's activities
which at this point will take up every minute from the opening of the gates at 10:00 a.m. to final event,
scheduled to begin immediately following a free BBQ dinner at 4:00p.m.
Family oriented activities, contests and demonstrations will be available for you and your
family to participate in. Win a four-wheeler, a bow or. muzzleloader. There will be loads of fishing trips
given away! Too many prizes to list! Chances are you've never competed in a "Red Neck Olympics,"
so get ready! Bring your bow, there's also an archery contest. Try your skill with a rod and reel at the
casting contest. Are you a golfer?- sign tp for the chipping contest. How many free throws can you
make on the basketball court? Can you toss a ring and make it land just right? Can you throw a cast
net? What about horseshoes? Are you a cowboy? Even if you're not, try your hand at Rope'n! Ever
tried to "lasso" a catfish?..you can try here, Are you a champion turkey caller? Did the turkey you
killed have a record length beard? Bring it and find out. How about that buck you killed. If it's never
been scored and registered by the Florida Wildlife Commission, bring it in and showcase it for a
chance to win big with a free deer mount! Are you quick going up a tree stand? Can you shoot a pel-
let gun? Want to learn more about muzzleloader rifles?;..just visit the muzzleloader booth. Want an-
other thrill? Make your way over to the cable ride and enjoy the trip. Remember, you can win prizes
during the day long ticket drawing process or by winning one or more of the contests listed above!
Hang on to your ticket stub. When your number is called out, you've got 30 minutes to claim your
prize before it goes back in the box to be drawn again!
And what's going on during all of the activities just listed? How about the best in musical
entertainment with Buren and Roxie Revels, new recording artist Jonathan Sherrill and the gospel
group "Southland!"
Still not busy enough?... visit the vendors section where you'll find loads of things to see and
possibly purchase.
Getting hungry? Thirsty? Visit the youth concession stand, where you'll find hotdogs, cold
drinks, ice cold water and other tasty treats for sale.
When you and your family arrive, make sure and make your first stop at the registration
table. There you will sign up and be given an American Flag wrist band along with a bag of free gifts.
You and each member of your family will receive a free ticket, good for drawings throughout the day.
You can improve your chances of winning by purchasing additional tickets at $1 each. Inside your
bag will also be a Commitment Card. After a FREE BBQ dinner and once the guest speaker presents
the main event program, you can fill out the card and drop it in the tumbler for a chance to win the
grand prize, a four-wheeler!
Still wondering what you can do at the EXPO? How about relaxing along the beautiful
Suwannee River and watching carefully for a Sturgeon to jump! Some seating is available, but you
might want to bring your favorite folding lawn chair. Parking is on-site with overflow parking arranged.

Special-Opportunity Spring Turkey
Hunt

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) will begin accepting 2008 special-op
portunity spring turkey hunt applications at 10
a.m. (EDT) Sept. 11. The deadline for submitting at
plications is midnight (EDT) Oct. 16.
Applications may be submitted at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com/fl, county tax collectors' offices or at an
license agent. A random drawing decides who will
receive the coveted permits. To apply, hunters can
obtain application worksheets at
MyFWC.com/hunting and at all FWC regional of-
fices.
Demand for these hunts is typically greater than
the number of available permits, but hunters can
increase their chances of being selected by submit
ting as many $5 nonrefundable applications as they
like. Successful applicants pay a permit fee of $50 -
$175, depending on the special-opportunity hunt
area selected.
Participation rules limit out-of-state hunters to on
permit per hunt.
The FWC created special-opportunity spring turke:
hunts for sportsmen looking to take an Osceola, th
"crown jewel" of the turkey hunters' Grand Slam.
The FWC designs special-opportunity turkey hunts
to take place on large tracts of land, with great
habitat, healthy turkey populations and a-limited
number of hunters.
The Osceola is a highly prized subspecies of wild
turkey, found only in peninsular Florida, south of
arid including Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union,
Bradford, Clay and Duval counties. All hunts take
place within the Osceola turkey's home range.


CONCERNED ABOUT MONEY Daniel Plank and Horse, Stormy Ride Again!
FOR RETIREMENT?
SOCIAL SECURITY AND A
SOLID SAVINGS PLAN CAN'
EASE YOUR WORRIES


By Paul Barnes
Social Security Regional Commission-
er, Atlanta, Georgia
Do you sometimes wonder if
you'll be able to afford retirement?
It's a common concern among workers,
especially members of the baby-boom
generation. The oldest of the boomers
will be 62 in just a few months in
January 2008. But even the most anx-
ious of this group should be able to re-
lieve at least some concerns about re-
tirement income by understanding just
how much money is needed, and then
planning a way to reach that goal.
Most financial advisors say
that you will need at least 70 to 80 per-
cent of your pre-retirement income to
enjoy a comfortable retirement. Other
advisors say that you may need an
even higher percentage of pre-retire-
ment income. So where will it come
from?
The truth is that today Social
Security is the largest source of in-
come for most older Americans. For
the average wage-earner, Social Securi-
ty will replace about 40 percent of pre-
retirement earnings. But Social Secu-
rity was never intended to be your only
source of income when you retire, and
to reach the 70 -80 percent income re-
placement goal you also will need oth-
er savings, investments, pension in-
come, or part-time work.
As Michael J. Astrue, Commis-
sioner of Social Security, has noted,
"Saving and investing wisely are im-
- portant not only for you and your fami-
ly but for the entire country If you
want to learn more about how and why
to save, you should visit www.my-
money.gov, a federal government web-
y site dedicated to teaching all Ameri-
cans the basics of financial manage-
ment."
The topics discussed at this
website include paying for an educa-
tion, starting a small business and, of
course, retirement planning.
The retirement planning link
y takes you to more than a dozen other
links with valuable financial informa-
tion. There is, for example, "A Special
Guide for Seniors and Families" from
the FDIC; "Top 10 Ways To Prepare
e For Retirement" from the Department
of Labor; "Tax Information for Retire-
y ment Plan Participants" from the IRS;
e and several links to Social Security
sites, including Social Security retire-
s ment benefit calculators, special
guides for women and retirement plan-
ners.
So if you are concerned about
being able to afford retirement, just re-
member that knowledge is power., Get
valuable information from Social Secu-
rity at www.socialsecutritygov, or from
the federal website for financial litera-

At the last Game Day held by the Dixie Horseman's Association, Young
Daniel Plank rode his horse, Stormy during the pole bending contest. Last
week, the Advocate ran a cut line under a photo titled Daniel as the rider,
which was actually not him. Game days are held the third Saturday each
month.


Tnf7DLixie -Divas


The Dixie Divas met at the Backyard Bar-B-Que in Newberry this past month. We had a
wonderful meal and our hostesses decorated the tables in the red and purple tradition. It is
a time for us to gather, have fun, and discuss all the "latest".
I think the restaurant enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed the good service, (Maybe it was
because we all wore red hats?) See you next month.

were three penalties and a
fumble by the quarterback. It
served a reminder that that
this is a work in progress,
because Tebow's manage-
ment of the running was
somewhere between
mediocre and awful.
"He didn't manage the
game well," Meyer said,
meaning that the 25-second
clock got away from him at
times, some of the offensive
players were out of position
and the execution of the run-
ning game left something to,
be desired. "But I thought he
threw the ball well."
Here's how Tebow an-
swered those critics have
been chirping "Can Tim
Tebow pass?" Take a look at
these stats in three quarters
of a game: 300 yards, 3 touch-
downs, no interceptions and
13 completions in 17 at-
tempts. He was poised in the
pocket. He had nice touches
on the long ball, including
the 59 and 42-yard touch-
down throws to Cooper.
The second piece of
irony is that Tebow was
throttled down by his coach-
es, given no pre-designed
running plays, told to keep
his raw emotions intact if he
came to the sideline vs. sev-
eral would-be tacklers to step
out. He did that twice, only
both times he got into a
ruckus when a Western Ken-
tucky player got after him.

cous that several managers'
had to create a human shield
for him.
"Maybe it's not safe to
run out of bounds after all,"
Tebow mused.
Thus Tebow became the
fourth left-hander to start
regularly since Tommy
Shannon took over in 1962 as
starting position as quarter-
back. After him were Jackie
Eckdahl in 1968 and Bobby
Hewko in 1980.
Historian Norm Carl-
son couldn't remember any
others, but did cite written
references of ambidextrous
Clyde "Cannonball" Crabtree
using both of his wings back
in 1928 when the Gators
missed going undefeated af-
ter a loss to Tennessee in the
final game. And throwing
with both arms is something
that even the wunderkind
Tebow can't do at least yet.
Of course, no other
Florida quarterbacks have
been gifted with the legs of
Tebow, who could easily be a
starting running back in
most programs,'so whatever
nuances or minor influences
the southpaw might caused
were worth the tradeoffs.
Is there a difference?
During camp, when
Urban Meyer was asked that,
he replied: "Not I can see
any About the only differ-
ence is that the ball comes
out of the other side. But I
wouldn't mind it if Cam
Newton (Tebow's backup)
was left-handed, too."

adjustmentss. however, as
Shanno-In found out. \Mile
taking snaips during a prac-
tice one da, in Miami. Shan-
non noticed a giy watching
him for several minutes. The
stranger approached the
lefty from liami Archbishop
Curle,. telling him how he
might improve the exchange
with the center.
He said. "Son. just
have yoitr center turn the
ball over so that when you
receive the ball it will have
the aces on the proper
hand." It worked.
That stranger was
none other than Fran Curci,
himself a lefty, and later to
become the head coach at
Tampa, Miami and Kentucky
None of those other
Gator QBs came with the
credentials of Tebow, who es-
tablished a state high school
passing record with 9,950
yards and 95 touchdowns.
And, unlike the other four
"wronghanders," Tebow
played as a freshman,.-giving
him a jumpstart on the Gator
passing records..
I'm not sure we could
say Tebow looks like a quar-
terback, because most of
them are not 6-3, 235 pounds.
He does look like a football
player, however, and he plays
at a high caliber. With the
wealth of talent surrounding
him, this is going to be an ex-
plosive Florida offense. Get
back to me on the defense af-
ter Tennessee, Auburn and
LSU.

Quick Jump
Starts
1. So I'm wondering if Tim
Tebow gets the win after the
rain-shortened opener, even
though he really didn't go
the full five innings.
2. Memo to Michigan coach
Lloyd Carr after the loss to
Appalachian State: Call 1-800-
Mayflower.
3. Cowboys Assistant Coach
Wade Wilson certainly has to
be the first in his profession


to get a flve-gamle suspension
for admitting he took an ille
gal., but unnamed substance.
-. It can never erase any part
of the pain of the massacre
in Blacksburg. but thankful-
l\ the Hokies have made the
next step with a public gath-
ering for a football game.
5. If they keep taking A-
Rod's bat everything he
homers. he's going to need
all that dough over the years
just to buy some new wood.

Short Stuff:
Saturday's Florida Western
Kentucky contest, which was
called in the fourth quarter,
was the only known game in
Florida football history to
have been canceled .. .After
an hour delay, Meyer was
worried about getting his
playersback on the field, but
joked that Associate Head
Coach Doc Holliday was "go-
ing to get them motivated to
go back out there" ... Tim
Tebow said this Saturday felt
a lot different than last be-
cause "last year I was just
trying to get in there and
make a play"

ON THE WATER
With Larry Nixon

TURNING TO GRASS
FOR BASS
After the warmth of summer, there's
no doubt that your favorite fishing
hole has some vegetation built up in
it. In summer, when the water
warms, the different aquatic vegeta-
tions are able to bloom. And if you
are a bass angler, there's nothing
that makes you happier than grass
in a fishery.

Grass is important to a fishery for a
multitude of reasons. First, young
fish (called fry) are able to retreat
into the dense aquatic vegetation
and escape predation. These fry
could be young bass or any other
species, but because they are able
to get some refuge in the grass,
there is more likely to be a better
survival rate meaning more bass
or bass forage in the future. Sec-
ondly, when there is grass in a fish-
ery, these aquatic plants will provide
forage for baitfish like minnows. If
there's a.healthy minnow population
present, the bass benefit, as well.
As a professional angler, I can tell
you that the presence of grass ex-
cites me when I get on the water.
Mostly, I am excited because I know
I can start my fishing efforts around
grass;-employing techniques that
typically do well near this vegeta-
tion. There's no shortage of ways to
attack grass in the late summer, but
here's three that are very produc-
tive.

If you like to catch largemouth bass,
then you're already acquainted with
flipping and pitching. It's an amazing
effective way of getting a bait into a
small area, putting it right in the
bass's face and delivering it with ac-
curacy and without disturbing the
fish with a big splash. One of the
- best ways to attack grass is to
scope the grass beds through your
polarized sunglasses and look for
holes in the vegetation. Once I find
such a hole, I like to pitch a Berkley
PowerBait Chigger Craw into the
hole. Rigged on a 4/0 wide-gap
hook with a 1- to 1 Y-ounce weight
using 20-pound Berkley Trilene
100% Fluorocarbon line, I put a


Snakebite Season Still uause

for Concern This Fall


Green Pumpkin-colored Chigger
Craw
in the hole and let it sink. Often,
bass will hit these baits on the fall. If
not, I drag it through the hole.
Pulling bass out of heavy vegetation
requires tough line and a rod with a
lot of backbone. If flipping and pitch-
ing holes doesn't work, I like to
Texas rig a Berkley Gulp! 5-inch
Watermelon Jerk Shad on a 3/0
weighted hook. I like to use a small-
er weight on the weighted hook -
like 1%-ounce or smaller to help
that Jerk Shad stay up in the water
column. I twitch this bait and let
swim past the edges of the-grass
line and hope that a bass will come
and attach. For this technique, I use
the same rod and reel set up but
drop down to 12-pound Trilene
100% Fluorocarbon to give the bait
more action.

Finally, if the bite is really tough, I
will turn to a shaky head. For this
set up, I use 10-pound Trilene 100%
Fluorocarbon. With a 7-inch Gulpl
Shaky Worm on a A%- or 3/8-ounce
shaky head jig, I cast parallel to the,
grass line, letting the jig head fall to
the bottom. Very slowly, I drag the
jig along the bottom, careful to keep
it
froni dragging into the grass. This is
a very slow technique and not much
fun when you are used to more ac-
tive fishing patterns, but when the
fish are only feeding in the morning
and evening and spending all day
hiding in the grass, this can be very
effective,

After working so hard to keep the
grass in your yard looking good,
why not let a little grass work for
you? Try focusing your efforts
around aquatic grasses when you
hit the water and try to put together
a pattern that will keep fish tugging
on your
line through the end of summer.

snakebite envenomations in the United States (this includes pit
vipers such as rattlesnakes, copperheads and
cottonmouths/water moccasins). "We are working in partner-
ship with the poison control centers to encourage every hospi-
tal to stock adequate supplies of antivenom, even if they ex-
pect to see just one snakebite patient a year," said Jackie Bel--
trani, Director of Institutional Sales and Spedialty Marketing for
Fougera, the marketer of CroFab. "Our goal is to ensure that
no patient has to lose valuable treatment time being trans-
ferred to another hospital because the initial hospital didn't
stock antivenom."


About CroFabR CroFabR is indicated for the management of
patients with minimal or moderate North American crotalid en-
venomation. Early use of CroFabR (within 6 hours of
snakebite) is advised to prevent clinical deterioration and the
occurrence of, systemic coagulation abnormalities. The term
crotalid is used to describe the Crotalinae subfamily (formerly
know as Crotalidae) of venomous snakes that includes rat-
tlesnakes, copperheads and cottonmouths/water moccasins.
With the exception of coral snakes, CroFabR can treat mild to
moderate envenomations from any venomous snake indige-
nous to the United States.

CroFabR works to stop venom from destroying tissue. It does
not reverse the damage already done by the snake venom.
The more time that elapses between the time of bite and the
time of treatment the greater the chance of complications. The
phrase "Time is Tissue" is often used to articulate the need to
treat bites quickly to prevent tissue damage.

In October 2002, Fougera assumed responsibility for the distri-
bution of CroFabR from Savage Laboratories. Both compa-
nies are divisions of Altana Inc. CroFabR was developed and
is manufactured by Protherics PLC.

Important Safety Information
The most common adverse events reported in clinical studies
were mild or moderate reactions involving the skin and ap-
pendages (primarily urticaria, rash or pruritus), which occurred
in 14 out of 42 patients. Two patients experienced severe al-
lergic reactions (severe hives and a severe rash and pruritus)
following treatment. One patient experienced recurrent coagu-
lopathy due to envenomation, which required re-hospitalization
and additional antivenin administration. In clinical trials, recur-
rent coagulopathy (the return of a coagulation abnormality af-
ter it has been successfully treated with antivenin), character-
ized by decreased fibrinogen, decreased platelets and elevat-
ed prothrombin time, occurred in approximately half of the pa-
tients studied. Recurrent coagulopathy may persist for 1 to 2
weeks or more. One patient discontinued CroFabR therapy
due to an allergic reaction. Patients with allergies to papain,
chymopapain, other papaya extracts or the pineapple enzyme
bromelain may also be at risk for an allergic reaction to Cro-
Fab. For additional information on adverse events, please re-
fer to the full prescribing information for CroFab available at
www.snakebitenews.com.

Fougera is a leading manufacturer and distributor of a wide

Post-Summer Antivenom Availability Remains Critical

Melville, NY August 23, 2007 Labor Day may mark the un-
official end of summer but snakebite season is still going
strong. In fact, approximately 20 percent of reported ven-
omous bites take place during the months of September and
October. Although the majority of snakebite incidents occur in
the southern half of the U.S., every state had at least one re-
ported bite last year.

Thanks in part to the availability of antivenom, widespread ed-
ucational efforts and heightened media attention, only about a
dozen North American crotalid bites result in death each year.
An estimated 8,000 people are bitten annually, and the number
of bites in any given season depends on a variety of factors in-
cluding geography, rainfall and temperature.

"Some areas of the country have experienced higher than av-
erage rain fall this year, while others are experiencing drought.
Both situations can persuade snakes to move into populated
areas in search of food or water," said Erica L. Uebelt M.D.
FACMT,Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Emergency
Medicine Director, Medical Toxicology Services UAB School of
Medicine.

"Unfortunately, we see numerous cases of a snake biting
someone twice or biting two people because of a botched ef-
fort to catch or kill it after the first bite. People often want to
capture the snake for identification purposes, but we don't
need to see the snake to treat the patient. And, we don't want
people bringing a snake into an ambulance or a hospital, even
a dead one, especially since snakes still have a bite reflex for
a short time after death," stated Dr. Liebelt. "The important
thing is to get the victim to a hospital as quickly and calmly as
possible. Infants, children and adults should all be treated with
antivenom if they have a mild to moderate envenomation."

CroFabR Crotalidae Polyvalent Immune Fab (Ovine) is the
only widely available antivenom for the management of pa-
tients with minimal or moderate North American crotalid

(ARA) Now that kids are going back to school, that doesn't mean
they should trade in all their time outdoors for hours in front of the
computer, TV or video games. The National Wildlife Federation
(NWF) has launched a new program as an antidote for kids too
wired to technology, sometimes called "nature deficit disorder."
NWF's Green Hour is designed to get kids away from their elec-
tronic screens and go outside everyday to connect with nature.
These outdoor adventures can promote creativity, lower stress lev-
els, build fitter leaner bodies, inspire a sense of wonder, and instill.
caring and responsibility for all things wild. Green Hours can take
place anywhere that provides green spaces where children can
safely learn and play. Some Green Hour activities recommended
by the National Wildlife Federation are:
* Go on a five senses hike
* Organize a nature scavenger hunt
* Explore a local nature trail
* Campout in the backyard
* Take a photo safari
* Put up a bird feeder and wait for visitors
* Observe a night sky
* Plant a family tree and watch it grow
Parents and caregivers can find more ideas for outdoor fun and
exploration at www.greenhour.org.
Good ideas on how to experience those outdoor adventures to-
gether can also be found in Ranger Rick, the National Wildlife
Federation's award-winning children's magazine, which is cele-
brating its 40th birthday this year. Happy Birthday Rick!
Ranger Rick has captivated generations of young readers with
amazing photos and articles about wildlife and wildlife habitat.
'Ranger Rick helped me see wildlife as something fun and excit-
ing and curious rather than scary or dangerous," says James Gi-
ilardi, who read Ranger Rick as a child.
Another avid reader in his youth, Gregory Watkins-Colwell, from
the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural .History, credits Ranger Rick
with inspiring his chosen profession. "Ranger Rick first introduced
me to the word "herpetologist" (study of reptiles and amphibians).
I no longer said I was going to be an astronaut, firefighter or rock
star when I grew up. No, I was going to be a herpetologist -- and
that's what I am today."
Karen Good, an environmental educator believes "The stories of
Rick and the gang made me realize that I was put on this earth to
take care of it. I still have the Ranger Rick nature pledge in my of-
fice."
Ranger Rick continues to entertain and inform young readers
while inspiring them to protect wildlife. Anna Lueck, age 10, says
'Ranger Rick got me interested in gorillas, and I plan to use my
lemonade stand as a fundraiser to help great apes."
While the magazine is for kids 8 to 12, it appears you never out-
grow your curiosity about the wild. "My grandpa gave me a sub-
scription 25 years ago. Now, when my daughter's Ranger Rick is
delivered, I read through it even before I give it to her," admits
Tiffany Vanderhider from Spring, Texas.
Ranger Rick is often used by teachers to stimulate interest in
wildlife and wild places. In 2006 the magazine received the Teach-
ers' Choice Award for the Family by Learning magazine (leading
magazine for elementary school teachers).

MO.RE THAN 100,000
HOMEOWNERS HAVE
SIGNED UP FOR THE
MY SAFE FLORIDA
HOME PROGRAM
After going statewide five-months
ago, program at 25 percent of its
goal for free wind inspections.
Florida Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink today announced that
more than 103,000 Florida homeown-
ers have signed up for free wind in-
spections through the My Safe Flori-
da Home (MSFH) program, signify-
ing the program has reached 25 per-
cent of its long-term goal of 400,000
free wind inspections in the next
two years.
'Thousands of Florida homeowners
are learning how to harden and pro-
tect their homes from hurricane
damage," said CFO Sink, who runs


the Deparnnent ot Financial Ser-
vices and oversees the MSFH pro-
gram. "We are able to help thou-
sands more Floridians in the next
two years. I encourage every eligi-
ble Florida homeowner to sign up to
receive a free wind inspection from
the My Safe Florida Home pro-
gram."
Any Floridian who lives in a single-
family, site-built home is eligible for
a free wind inspection through the
MSFH program, which helps Florid-
ians identify how they can strength-
en their homes and reduces the
overall potential for hurricane dam-
age in our state. Floridians can ap-
ply on-line at www.MySafeFlorida-
Home.com http://www.mysafeflori-
dahome.com or by calling the pro-
gram toll-free at 1-866-513-6734.
Homeowners who receive free wind
inspections through the MSFH pro-
gram will receive a detailed inspec-
tion report, complete with addition-
al information on estimated insur-


ance premium discounts, it the
homeowner is eligible.
Additionally, some Florida home-
owners receiving a free wind inspec-
tion may be eligible for a matching
grant reimbursement of up to $5,000
to make recommended improve-
ments. To be eligible, the Legisla-
ture requires that homeowners:
have received a completed wind in-
spection after May 1, 2007; live in a
single-family, site-built home built
before March 1,2002; have a valid
homestead exemption; have an in-
sured value of $300,000 or less; and
be located in the wind-borne debris
region. Additionally, while the free
wind inspections will still cover sev-
en potential wind-resistance im-
provements, matching grants may
only be applied to opening protec-
tions, including windows, exterior
doors and garage doors, as well as
the bracing of gable ends.
The MSFH program expanded


statewide this spring atter a pilot
program the previous year and has
performed more than 72,000 free
wind inspections since April 23,
2007, for a total of 86,969 inspections
since the program started. Since
the program streamlined its ser-
vices and re-launched in April 2007,
CFO Sink has increased helpline
staff, reduced the wait time for an
inspection, and recruited hundreds
of program inspectors and contrac-
tors.
Approximately 8,700 homeowners
statewide have been approved to re-
ceive matching grants from the
MSFH program upon the comple-
tion of their recommended improve-
ments. Statewide, the program has
issued nearly $2.8 million in grants
to 890 homeowners who have com-
pleted the improvements recom-
mended in their MSFH inspection
reports.

Even home mortgages are being designed with flexible features that allow homeowners to adjust the terms of their loan without re-
financing or tap into their home's equity without applying for a separate line of credit. Gone are the mountains of.additional paper-
work, hidden fees and closing anxiety that have characterized the process of obtaining a new mortgage or refinancing an existing
one.

"People can simplify and customize most every other aspect of their lives, so why not the terms and features of their mortgage?"
asks David Schneider, president of the Home Loans group at WaMu, one of the nation's leading consumer and small business
banks.

With another home buying season under way,,mortgage lenders are finding new ways to answer that question by offering mortgage
products that provide simplicity, flexibility and value to their borrowers. WaMu, for example, is offering homeowners with good credit
and a minimum down payment of 10 percent a new product called WaMu Mortgage Plus which combines a first mortgage and
home equity line of credit into a single loan with terms consumers can simply, quickly and affordably customize as their financial
and other needs change. WaMu Mortgage Plus offers borrowers a wide range of flexible payment options and the ability to instantly
tap into the home's equity as principal is paid down to cover the cost of remodeling, college tuition, or to consolidate higher-interest
debt, for example.

But one of its most unique features allows borrowers to quickly and easily reset their interest rate to take advantage of changing in-
terest rates or personal financial circumstances. Let's say a borrower has a fixed rate mortgage at 6.5 percent but fixed rates fall to
5.5 percent. With WaMu Mortgage Plus, they can reset their interest rate to the lower fixed rate in as little as 15 minutes simply by
making a telephone call or visiting any WaMu location. That compares with the 30 to 90 days-it typically takes to close a refinance
transaction, depending on market conditions and other factors.

Those who follow mortgage trends say consumers who closely monitor the impact of interest rates on their financial situation and
want the ability to fine-tune their mortgage as part of their overall financial portfolio will be especially attracted to WaMu's new prod-
uct. The ability to tap into their home's equity without additional time-consuming paperwork or hassle appeals to many consumers,
adds Schneider.

For example, a homeowner who purchases a $400,000 home with' 10 percent down ($40,000) is eligible to put the home's equity to
work as soon as the loan's principal begins to be paid down. Parents with children will appreciate the fact that by paying down the
principal by $20,000, for example, they will have instant access to that same amount in equity, saving them the time, hassle and
added cost of refinancing when their teens are ready to head off to college.

"Consumers today are extremely sophisticated when it comes to selecting a mortgage product, and they have told us they wanted
a product that fits in with the way they manage their other financial assets," says Schneider. "We believe that if consumers could
design the perfect mortgage, this would be it. For many people, this may be the last mortgage they'll ever need."

(ARA) As Hal-
loween decorations
hit the stores, calen-
dars fill up with
Si school activities and
class parties. In be-
tween running to the
i store to buy ingredi-
ents for the class
treats and finding the
perfect costumes,' it
can be tough to spend time with the whole family.
Gathering at the dinner table can benefit more than kids'
stomachs. A 2006 study by The National Center on Addic-
tion and Substance Abuse at Columbia University found
that children who eat dinner with their families five or more
times a week are more likely, across the board, to have
higher grades in school. The trend transcends differences
in gender, family structure and socioeconomic level*.
What makes family dinners so important to success, in
school and elsewhere? "The communication that occurs
during family dinners is critical in building a relationship with
your children and to understanding the world in which they
live," says Joseph A. Califano Jr., chairman and president
of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse
at Columbia University and a former U.S. Secretary of
Health, Education, and Welfare. "Making the commitment to
have dinner as a family on a regular basis can influence
your kids' lives more than anything else you do."

The benefits of eating dinner as a family are clear but
what about making time for a family meal among sports and
school schedules, after-school plays and your own busy
job? One company KFC is setting the table for suc-
cess with www.BringBackDinner.com, a comprehensive on-
line resource designed by moms, for moms, to help families
connect more around the dinner table. The site features fun
and accessible advice on a variety of dinner-related issues,
from mealtime manners and etiquette to tips on budgeting
at the grocery store.
Julienne Smith, founder and author of "Food For Talk" and
a member of KFC's Moms Matted Advisory Board, is a con-
tributor to the site. "I'm a mom myself, and I know from ex-
perience that families are starved for quality time," Smith
says. "Meals are a great and often overlooked occa-
sion for the entire family to decompress and connect on a
more intimate level. BringBackDinner.com literally puts it all
out there, with great tips that can take the work out of the
family dinner and a fun online community that will keep
moms coming, back fpr more."
Smith's "Food For Talk" is an actual recipe box of conversa-
tion starters specifically designed to promote family bonding
and togetherness, based on this "professional mom's" ex-
periences with her own children. A few examples include:
* Would you rather have a lot of acquaintances or one
close friend? Why?
* Share one thing you are most grateful for today.
* If you could eat dinner as a family anywhere you wanted,
where would it be and why?

ter on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia Univer-
sity and more tips on successful family dinners, visit

What ToDo When The Power Goes Out

(NAPSI)-Do you know how to keep your food safe during a power outage caused by storms or other events? The U.S. Department of
Agriculture has the answers to help you keep your food safe.


* Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to maintain the cold temperatures. Each time the door is opened,
a significant amount of cold air is lost. Never taste a food to determine its safety.


* The refrigerator will keep food cold safely for about four-hours if unopened. A full freezer will hold the temperature for approximately 48
hours (24 hours if it is half full and the door remains closed). Food may be safely refrozen if it still contains ice crystals or is at 400 F or
below.


* If possible, obtain dry or block ice to keep your refrigerator and freezer as cold as possible if the power is going to be out for a long
time. Fifty pounds of dry ice should hold an 18-cubic-foot full freezer for two days.


* If the power has been out for several days, check the temperature of the food in the freezer with a food thermometer. If the food still
contains ice crystals or is at.400 F or below, it's safe. Check each package of food to determine its safety.


* Discard refrigerated perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, soft cheeses,' milk, eggs, leftovers and deli items after four hours with-
out power. I


* The safest rule of thumb: When in Doubt, Throw it Out!


'Power outages can occur at any time of the year and it often takes from a few hours to several days for electricity to be restored to res-
idential areas," said USDA Under Secretary for Food Safety Dr. Richard Raymond.


'Foods stored in freezers and refrigerators can become unsafe in just a few hours if bacteria begin to grow, and if these foods are con-
sumed, people can become very sick."


In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that as many as 5,000 people die each year due to some type of food-
borne illness-that's almost 14 people every day. In addition, for one out of every five Americans, food-borne illnesses are even more
dangerous than they are for the average healthy adult. Those in the at-risk category include young children, pregnant women, older
adults and people with weakened immune systems.


So when the lights go out and you're left in the dark for more than a few hours, take precautions to avoid food-borne illness.
A video and brochure on keeping food safe during power outages are available online at www.fsis.usda.gov. You can also find answers
to your food safety questions at askkaren.gov or by calling the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline.

" A Walk in the Garden"
September 2007 All right! All right! Enough of
this 90 degree stuff! This IS September isn't it?
Wow, we've had a few scattered showers,
some mean storm cells, lots of lightning, but the
water table is still low in most of our county.
What does all this mean for those of us that en-
joy planting things?
Hold onto your seatbelts as I give
you a scattered shower of ideas for
September:
-Find out which plants around your
garden are hot as drought tolerant
as others and use them as indicators
as you observe them each day. ...
- Invest in an inexpensive rain
guage. You will be surprised to find
that many days you have assumed it
rained at your house just because it
rained where you were while shop-
ping.
-Please do not over fertilize! I could mention a
long list of friends who have burnt up their
greenery by thinking "if a little is good, then alot
must be better!" Don't yield to this temptation.
-Know your plants.Some like the sun, some pre-
fer shade, some need moisture, others will die
from over watering. Check on line or at your lo-
cal nursery if you have questions.
-Trim off all old blooms and seed pods on your
crepe myrtles. Give them a final dbse of their fa-
vorite fertilizer and watch them bloom yet anoth-
er time before the first frost of the fall.
-Speaking of fertilizing, September should be
the last month of your schedule to give trees
and perennials a bite to eat before they rest
this winter.
-If you still have spring and summer annuals in
beds around your house, remove all of the ex-
pired ones now till the soil, add your manure or
mix and till again. Then let it rest for 2-4 weeks
before planting your cool season annuals for
fall color.
-If you are thinking about sodding or seeding a


lawn, September and Uct'obeir are usually good
months for a high success rate.
-Bugs and weeds are at an all time high this
month. My rule is to try to keep them under con-
trol. If you think you can get rid of them entirely,
you will need to buy yourself some anti-depres-
sants due to frustration.Whiteflies and grasshop-
pers are the two menaces on my hit list.
If you can keep the weeds under control you
take away breeding grounds for the
whiteflies! Grasshoppers, make a
game out of it to see how many you
can catch in an hour. Get creative!
Invite your grandkids in on the
Game too!
-Trim up all of your hedges EX-
CEPT the AZALEAS. Only trim the
really bad long azalea branches as
the rest of the old growth is where
the spring blossoms come from. If
you trim the old growth at this time
of year you will be left with nice
green azaleas with very few blooms
next spring.
-Citrus trees are still o.k. to plant and give them
their last feed of the year.
-Fruit trees: best to wait until
October / November when they sap down and
enter into their dormant stage.
-We are in agricultural ZONE 8b. This means
that historically our area has an average low
temperature between 15 and 20 degrees
Fahrenheit.Practically speaking, if we have a
real cold winter, some of the 8 zoned plants will
not make it. If we have an unusually warm win-
ter, some zone 9 or even 10 plants could sur-
vive another year.
Now that I have bombarded you with
all of these tid-bits of ideas? Go make yourself
that special blend of coffee or
tea. Put the BUSYNESS and problems of yes-
terday aside. Think positive about today and en-
joy a walk in YOUR garden! respectfully sub-
mitted, Art and Karen Wyckoff @ A
& K Nursery, Cross City, FI

DgXqE,


This lovely cake, made for Georgia Hodge's birthday was made by her
Aunt, Elizabeth Locklear. Elizabeth used a total of six boxes of cake
mix and a dozen eggs to construct this cullinary marvel. According to
attendees, the cake was absolutely delicious, and our very own Editor,
Kathy McKinney. confesses to have gone back for seconds herself.
