WATER USAGE
FAPTR


rvA #~ r~t


mI -e County Commissioners Auditorium in Mar-
ion County was filled to overflowing with peo-
ple this Sunday They were there in the defense of
one of our State Treasures, the Ocklawaha River.
As you may have heard, the St. Johns River Water
Management District has plans to drain some of our
most historic rivers and begin pumping the water
across the state, to meet the water demands of areas
which have been developed beyond their sustainable
liinits. These areas are looking at draining the Ock-
lawaha to provide for their future needs. They seem
to be disregarding the fact that the communities sur-
rounding the Ocklawaha also project a future need
for the river, and the obvious impact that this will
have on the environment.
Nancy Argenziano brought to our attention the fact
that the West coast of South Florida lost its potable
water in the 1930's and reminded us "You can't take
out more than Mother Nature puts in." Pumping wa-


ter from the aquifer at a faster rate than it can
recharge naturally causes what is known as "'In-
duced Recharge" which can come from either seawa-
ter. or groundwater. In either case it lowers to quali-
ty of our drinking water, and would eventually
make it unpalatable.
To make matters worse, the cost of establishing this
pipeline is estimated to be $500.000,000. That is FIVE
HUNDRED MILLION dollars of taxpayer money
that is to be spent on an unsustainable supply.
Agriculture uses the lion's share of water in Flori-
da. and elsewhere. Everywhere in the nation, when
agricultural land is converted to residential proper.
ties. water usage in that area decreases. Everywhere
except Florida. that is. As opposed to draining these
beautiful natural resou-'ces. perhaps we should con.
side conservation of the water we are already us-
ing. According to Cynthia Barnett. author of "MNi-
rage: Florida and the Vanishing Water of the East-

Viewpoints & Opinions


News flash: This guy is not Adolf Hitler!

Paul Henss, ah 88 year-old German who, while not a
citizen, has been living in this country legally since 1955. It
was recently disclosed that Henss will be deported for war
crimes allegedly committed while he was in the German
Army during World War II.
Henss would have been a young teen-ager at the on-,
set of Hitler's military campaign to unite Europe in the mid
1930s. As the war progressed, .be was recruited to serve in the
military, as werejutabout all able-bodied young men.of. that
period.
The war crimes with which he is charged consisted
of training dogs, which were subsequently used to guard
prisoners at Nazi concentration camps. Henss denies any di-
rect involvement in the use of the dogs he trained in abusing,
prisoners. He is not a Holocaust denier, stating that the Holo-
caust was recognized as a "catastrophe" by "everybody" in
Germany
Put another way, he was a "grunt," or whatever the
Germans called a low-ranking enlisted man. One would ex-
pect that he had about as much of a policy-making role as
Gomer Pyle, who, incidentally, was given a dog-training as-
signment in one episode of that 1960s television classic,
"Gomer Pyle, USMC."
Authorities are upset because Henss failed to tell im-
migration officials that he had been in the German Army
when he came to the United States 52 years ago. The other
side of that coin is the fact that he was not asked. It seems
reasonable to suppose that, a mere ten years after World War
II ended, he would not have been eager to bring up his mili-
tary service; and likewise that immigration officials would
have asked a German immigrant in his early 30's if he'd
served in the German Army if they felt that was important.
In case anybody thinks I'm taking up the cause for
Nazi war criminals, please be assured that this is not the.
case. A number of war criminals were executed following the
Nuremberg trials at the end of World War II, and that's exact-
ly what needed to happen. However these were high-ranking
officers in policy-making positions, not army privates and
prison guards.
About 20 years ago, I took some heat for defending
John Demjanjuk, a Russian soldier captured arid pressed into
service as a prison guard for the German Army in World War
II. He was in this country legally and had become a natural-
ized citizen. Demjanjuk was accused of being a Nazi war
criminal and was extradited to Israel for trial, where he was
convicted and sentenced to death. However he was exonerat-
ed after it was discovered that the documents used to connect
him to atrocities committed at Nazi concentration camps
were forged by Soviet agents. Demjanjuk was eventually al-
lowed to return to the United States and is reportedly being
compensated for the injustices he experienced.
The point here is that Demjanjuk was hustled out of
the US and shipped off to a foreign country for trial on the, ,
basis of some bogus claims and forged evidence, and it nearly,
cost him his life. That shouldn't have happened, and I can't'
help wondering if this is what Paul Henss is up against.
At the present time, the United States is "home" to a
substantial number of people who are here illegally and who
present a clear and present danger to our safety. We have ille-
gals from south of the border committing crimes, and the re ,
sponse in some areas is to give them driver's licenses. We
have Islamic militants plotting to blow up people, places and
things, and we bend over backward to avoid insulting their
religion.
Meanwhile, we deport old men who have never bro-
ken a law in this country and never would, simply on the ba
sis of their having been on the wrong side in a war that end-'
ed 62 years ago. Something about that situation just ain't
right. ,

Dear Dr Conti.
I am a homeowner in the small s-ttlemenrt of Suvwannee. Florida. liy father
rand I built our Suwanmee home in 1974. Although inmy father paz--.d away
several ear's ago. my -unily and my son's family continue to coime to
Suwau-iee as often as ue can.
In thepast several.years we have experienced a severe problem with the pub-
lic water provided in the community In the past year our problem has be-
come a considerable concern for the health of our families. Although we
have completely stopped drinking and cooking with the local water, we
would still eat and drink the tea and coffee in the local restaurants. We have
totally stopped this at the present tie .
We haveI received several leit'rs fi mm the local water r board manager, Mr
Tony Joins Each nonce has Lsted several ptei itiall, dangerou- deviancies
in the suppli-d water Thes,' letters amre i-,eited several months following
the testi)e. Boiled ,water notices are never issued.
A few weeks back I attended a local water board meeting held here in the
community of Suwannee, which was purported to explain the reasons for
increasing the cost of our water. I was surprised that the meeting was
opened by an attorney who gave a very inadequate explanation of the raise


Letter to the Editor:
Last week, I took my mother. Margaret Lovelace, to Old Town Ceme-
tery so we could visit v% ith her son. m\ brother, Woody Lovelace, who
passed away this past April 7th in a fatal car accident. We go there a
couple of times of week, and, as the weeks and months pass by the
beautiful, silk flower arrangements that friends and family sent dur-
ing our time of loss, have faded. So, last Thursday, I removed these
once-beautiful arrangements to replace them with a green, rhetal
plant stand adorned with decorative ivy leaves that I refurbished
and filled with four beautiful fall-colored mums that I purchased that
same day at A & K Nursery Then, I picked up my mom; she was sur-
prised and pleased with the changes. That made me happy. The next
day Friday, my Grandmother, Velma Lovelace and I went back dur-
ing the afternoon rain showers to "tidy up" the area because services
were going to be held nearby on Saturday Those yellow, gold and or-
ange, and magenta colors of mums radiated even in the dark,
stormy weather I smiled inside, knowing Woody could've appreci-
ated the colors of fall. Sunday morning, my husband called me at
work to tell me that my Grandmother just informed him that the
plants and the stand were missing! Sad, huh?!?
Now. to the person or persons who took that plant stand and those
pretty mums: I pray that you enjoy them longer than we were able to.
I completely understand why you took them because they, truly were
beautiful mums and reasonably priced, too but. you wouldn't know
that because it didn't come out of your pocket. That doesn't matter.
though. I enjoy getting free stuff, too. I make a hobby out of turning
'trash" into "treasures" But. the best thing I ever got for free. I had
all along. I would love to tell you what that is. Please meet me at
New Prospect Baptist Church. so I can share that with you!! If I'm
not there. talk to any of my brothers or sisters there! They know
what it is. too. If New Prospect Baptist Church is too far for you to
travel. try Old Town Methodist Church. Faith in the Word Assembly.
Old Tow-n Church of God. Old Townt First Baptist Church, Suwan-
nee River Baptist Chur-ch. Pickens Temple. Church of Christ or any
of the other churches near Old Town Cemetery.- where you have al.
ready been.They know what it is. too. Just ask them about the "free
gift" free to you and me the price has already been paid. You won't
be disappointed
You're in my pi ayers.

in cost with no ex-planatio.n of any efforts made to work with state and feder-
al agencies to obtain financial assistance to help with any increases in the
water cost.
During the meeting the attorney m I cannot recall his ruine conducted the
entire question and answer session. I asked one simple i I thought) question
concerning the efibrts to secure the lowest possible bond issue. I was treated
with the attorney's answer as if I was some unlearned child who knew north.
ing about finances. Insulting as could be.
It was quite evident that the question of the current water quality was not
even on the agenda.
This is a poor community I hope this does not offend anybody) that is suf-
feringr, with a water supply that is suffering from a substantially inferior wa-
ter system without any assurance of improvement or assurance that an af-
fordable supply will ever be made available.
I anm respectfully requesting that inur agency investigate the harm that is
bei&g inctu-red by the totally inferior water quality in our rommuuuty
Thank ,nu in advance for Nour assistance

Correction: In our previous issue the "We Salute" to Emma ou occasionally have grown students approach me and

Lakeland.." anda"Suwannee 'Riverfish, grits, andswamy cabbage..." I hope I will be able to continue for the rest of my life.


Moved To Dixie County: Several times. I and my
family moved here-in 1953-1957. During the following
years, both my sons graduated from Dixie High
School. My husband Vasco. (now deceased), and I
moved to Lakeland and returned in 1981.

Family: Father Blake Curry, Mother Maggie R. Cur-
ry, Husband Vasco, Sons Darrell and Jimmie, Four
grandchildren and five great-grandchildren

Worked: Piano
Teacher: I have
taught many,
many years
here in
Cross City
and Lake-
land. I
was a
music
teacher
for one '
year in
all of
the Dixie "
County .,
Schools,
Which I thor-
oughly en-
joyed. I %.


What Did You Like About Your Jobs: Teaching chil-
dren and adults too has been so rewarding. I have
students who became piano teachers, choir directors
and many of them are pianists in their church. It
has been such a thrill to see them grow up and be-
come accomplished musicians. Through all the
years (and I still teach) sharing my music with oth-
ers has been a blessing and truly made my own life
richer. Also, I have been a church pianist since I was
10 years old.

Hardest Part Of Your Jobs: Trying to instill in my
students the need for discipline in their practice
habits. To become an accomplished pianist, you have
to practice everyday As the old saying goes. "Prac-
tice makes perfect".

How Has Dixie County Changed Since You Moved
Here: I miss many of the old landmarks. Much of
the history that I remember has faded away. but I
still have my memories. When I was a young girl, we
would visit my grandma Robinson during the sum-
mer. My mother and I would bring her to Cross City
to trade as she said. We would park at the depot. One
time I remember Mr. Peach came out of his grocery
store and ran off the cows. They were trying to eat
his produce which he had sitting outside his store
in barrels and on shelves. Highway 19 was a dirt
road then and cows wandered all over town. It's
hard to imagine that now.

Favorite Foods: I like food period. Especially
Suwannee River fish, grits, and swamp cabbage.
Also, chocolate cake and fried chicken. Oh Yes. I
love...... ice cream.

What Is Something You Have Seen In Recent Years
That You Never Thought You Would Witness: All
those Condos on the coast and walking and riding a
bike where the railroad tracks use to be. I miss the
trains rumbling through town and blowing their
whistles.


Letter t,-, th Editi .
Area churches and volunteers are very appreciative of the commu-
nity support shown for the recently held Dixie Sportsman Outdoor EXPO. We
have received numerous comments about the family oriented event and the
opportunities it gave for all ages to participate without the typical expendi-
ture by each family for a day of fun. '
Although the' event was centered around outdoor activities, the
main theme was to to provide a message about Jesus Christ and to give an op-
portunity fdr anyone to accept Him, and become a member of the Christian
community. For the record, over 3,000 people attended the event and there
were 85 that accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. In addition, there were
many rededications of faith and requests for a full gospel Bible. Work is now
underway to follow-up on all of the information received on the commitment
cards that were turned in by event goers.
The event organizers would also like to thank the Anderson family
of Old Town for their generous donation of the old campground along the
banks of the beautiful Suwannee River for the event location.
Work has already begun in preparation for another event, includ-
ing an evaluation of the first EXPO., There were about seven churches partic-
ipating in the event and we are encouraged by the additional churches. re-
questing that they be a part of next year's event.

Cross City Pentecostal Holiness Church

Thank you to all our people for such a wonderful Pastor Ap-
preciation Day My wife and I are blessed to have a great con-
gregation like you. Ladies you outdid yourselves on that
lunch. Thank you.
Brother Matt Clark from Bartow, Florida, ministered this
past Sunday morning on the deep calling unto the deep. how
we as the church need to call unto the debts of the Spirit of
God.: We are walking in shallowness and God is calling us to
the deeper things of Himself. When we as God's people draw
ourselves into Him, the worldly things around us will take
second place to our hunger for the Lord. it is our hunger for
the Lord that God Himself is looking for.
I invite anyone looking for a home church to come join us in
worship. Our choir will bless you, we have a loving people,
and you will be blessed in many ways., have a good week

"LEGISLATOR OF THE YEAR"
AWARD

Tallahassee, Fl Representative Will Kendrick (R-Carrabelle)
was presented with the "Legislator of the Year Award" by the
Florida Forestry Association at their annual meeting held on
September 6, 2007 in Pointe Vedra.
This award was presented to Rep. Kendrick for his leadership
in the conservation and preservation of the State's forests
and timber industry while advocating for a more specific ded-
ication of land management dollars in relationship to those
lands being purchased.
"I am honored to receive this recognition. It is very impor-
tant to preserve and manage our state lands not only for our
generation but tfor generations to come", said Rep. Kendrick.
Lynetta Grinor. Florida Forestry Association Board Member
and Chairman of the Government Relations Committee said,
"We are pleased to recognize Rep. Kendrick for his accom-
plishments as an avid supporter of agriculture and the
forestry industry .
Rep. Kendrick is Chairman of the Florida House of Repre-
sentatives' Committee on Conservation and State Lands and
has been effective in steering greater oversight of state lands
and holding state agencies accountable for future goals in
managing state lands.
Kendrick said, "I am proud to represent an area with so
much state and forest lands and to have a voice in making
sure that they are protected and managed efficiently".
"The ultimate success of our state land purchases.will be
best recognized by not how we have managed our state lands
in the past but by the mechanisms that we have put in place
for future generations with emphasis on public accessibili-
ty", Kendrick continued.
Governor Crist and The Florida Cabinet is scheduled to
adopt a resolution on October 16th honoring forestry and pro-
claiming the week of October 22-27 as "Florida Forestry
Week".

WATER WARS
continued from page one

ern U.S." Floridians use 174 gallons of water per person per
day; significantly more than the national average of about -
90 gallons of water per person per day .

In addition, piping the Ocklawaha around Florida will set a
precedent, opening the door to more developers demanding
more water froni other rivers. When the Ocklawaha is
sucked -dry other rivers will surely follow. The Suwannee
River Water Management District has already set Mini-,-.
mum Flow Levels for the lower Suwannee and has secured
funding of over $700,000 to complete the task;.,This is .apre-i
requisite to pumping water.from any river. The flow levels
they have established will allow add it ional permits for the
pumping of 86 million gallons of water per day .

This is an issue that requires to attention of everyone in
Florida. Are we willing to let them destroy our natural her-
itage for the sake of developers? If you would like more in-

Miss Ashely Long is a student volunteer at Shired Island,
Refuge and will be writing a series of articles on her experi-
ences there.

SHIRED ISLAND REFUGE


What Surprised Me about the Refuge?

Did you know that Shired Island, the Dixie Mainline, Fish
Bone Creek, and the last twenty miles of the Suwannee
River are all part of the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge? I didn't, but these are just some popular places in
Dixie County that are a part of the entire United States
Wildlife Refuge System.,
The Refuge headquarters is located in Levy County in
Fow lers Bluff and extends from there to the nearly to
Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge and its islands. Some
other things that surprised me about the refuge is the vari-
ety of jobs there and how important they all are to main-
taining the refuge. Just some of the important jobs include:
the managers who conduct and direct refuge operations,
the ranger who deals with the public Outreach and educa-
tion. There is also the forester who keeps track of the geo-e
graphical information systems and logging operations, a
fire specialist who fights wild fires and also performs pre-r
scribed burns to maintain forest health and reduce haz-
ardous fuels, and the law enforcement officer who patrols
the refuge and make sure its visitors obey the law.

Those are just some important jobs and just a little of what
they consist of. All of these jobs and more are much need-
ed to keep the refuge in working order. Each and every em-
ployee works together for one purpose: "Protecting, main-
taining, and enhancing a rare natural ecosystem." This re-
sulting in a well managed habitat for the local plants and
animal, while eftbrts are being made to educate the com-'
munity about all the aspects of the refuge.

Pathways to Faith


BEHOilLD) 'THEJ AJSEaRNAULJE
Rev. 21:3


U r tiTUJ


"The Natural Jew"
Continued from last week. I, the son of man say, the Jews af-
ter so many centuries have not been converted although they
live among Christians, and do not, as the Word predicts, con-
fess the Lord and acknowledge Him to be the Messiah, who,
as they think, was to lead them back to the land of Canaan,
but constantly persist in denying Him; and yet it is well with
them.
But those who so think, and who therefore call in question
the Divine providence, do not know that by "Jews" in the
Word all who are of the Church and who acknowledge the
Lord are meant; and by "the land of Canaan", into which it is
said that they are to be led, the Lord's church is meant. But
the Jews persist in denying the Lord, because they are such
that they would profane the Divinity of the Lord and the holy
things of His church if they were to accept and acknowledge
them.
The Lord says of them: He hath blinded their eyes and hard-
ened their heart, lest they should see with their eyes and un-
derstand with their heart, and should turn themselves, and I
should heal them (John 12:40; Matt 13:15;,Mark 4:12; Luke 8:10;
Isa. 6:9,10) It is said "lest they should turn themselves and I
should heal them." because if they had been turned and
healed they would have committed profanation: and it is ac-
cording to the law of Divine providence that no one is admit-
ted by the Lord interiorly into truths of faith and goods of
charity except so far as he can be kept in them until the end
of his life. and if he were admitted he would profane what is
holy
That nation has been.preserved and has been scattered over a
great part of the world for the sake of the Word in its original
language, which they, more than Christians, hold sacred; and
the Lord's Divinity is in every particular of the Word, for
that which goes forth from the Lord is Divine truth united to
Divine good. and by this the Word becomes a conjunction of
the Lord with the Church and the presence of heaven with
man.
That nation was permitted to crucify the Lord. This was be-,
cause the Church' with that nation had beenmwholly devastat-
ed, and had become such that not only they did not know and
acknowledge the Lord, but they even hated Him: and yet all
things that they did to him were done in accordance with the:
laws of His Divine providence. That the passion of the cross.
was the last temptation or last combat, by which the Lord ful-
ly conquered the hells and fully glorified His Human, Love

The Word Made Flesh
"The Divine Trinity"

Continued from last week. I the son of man, say the Trinity of
God did not and could not exist before the world was created;
also that there are three essentials of one Person in God Man,
of which the Trinity of God is predicated, has been shown
above. God as the Word came into the world and assumed the
Human in the Virgin Mary and the Holy One thence born
was called the "Son of the Most High". the "Son of God" the
"Only Begotten," is known from the old word where it is pre-
dicted, and from the New where it is described. I the son of
man, say since there fore God the Most High, who is the Fa-
ther, by His Divine proceeding which is the Holy Spirit, con-
ceived the Human in the Virgin Mary. it follows that the Hu-
man born of that conception is the Son, and the conceiving
Divine is the Father; and that both together is the Lord, God
the saviou:, Jesus Christ, God and the Man. It follows also
that the Divine Truth, which is the Word, and in which is the
Divine Good, was the seed and by the soul is the body In con-
firmation this Arcanum shall be mentioned: The spiritual
origin of all human seed is truth from good, but not Divine
Truth from Divine Good in its own essence, infinite and un-
create as in the Lord, but in its own form finite and created. I
the son of man say It is known that the soul adjoins to itself
a body which may serve it for performing uses, and after-
wards it conjoins itself to the body as it serves, and this even
until the soul become of the body and the body of the soul.
This is what the Lord says, that He is in the Father, and the
Father in him. From these things it follows that the Trinity of
God came into existence after the world was created and then
in God Incarnate, who is the Lord, the Saviour, Jesus Christ.


Love you, continued next week.

NEW PROSPEClT BAPTIST NEWS


Our choir and musicians were in top form Sunday, doing a
fine job of getting church services underway We were also
blessed with a special song by the VanAernam brothers,
Franikie and Kimbo, their father, Gene, and Andy
Chesser...good work, men, we look forward to more! Due to
God's wonderful grace and healing, Bro. Billy was back with
us Sunday, delivering God's great message of healing from
Luke 8:43-48. It was good to be in God's house!

Due to the Tri-County Crusade's running near Chiefland this
week, Sunday evening and Wednesday evening services at
NPBC were suspended so we might attend the Crusade.
If you haven't attended the services conducted by Evangelist
Harold Hunter so far, you're missing a real blessing, but there
is still time for attending one or two services, beginning at
7:00 P.M. nightly. In other news, don't forget the Association
Youth Rally hosted on Saturday, Oct. 13th at 6:00 P. M., by
New Prospect Baptist Church. We will have our'monthly
Pastor/Deacons Meeting on Monday evening, Oct. 15th, fol-
lowed by our Church Business Meeting on Wednesday
evening, Oct. 17th.

We were most pleased to have visitors again Sunday, and look
forward to more; all are welcome at New Prospect. Please re-
member to pray for all our military personnel in harm's way,
our President and other leaders, and all those on the church
prayer lists here at home...God blesses us with answered
prayers! Have a good week, and may God bless and keep you
safe.


LYDIA BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS
The exhilaration of gentle rain against a backdrop of illumi-
nating sunshine welcomed us to God's house on Sunday at
Lydia.

We were delighted to see numerous visitors, and wotld love
to see you all again and again! Our Lydia Quartet sand a love-
ly new song of praise. and the children were taught by Elaine
Hines to be glad for each day God gives us, and to rejoice in
every hour of it.

Pastor Wayne AMlen's message from] Corinthians 16:22 en-
treated us to love Jesus. When you hear Him knocking at the
door, don't ignore it. let Him in! You'll be in a pitiful predica-
ment if He ever stops knocking! Don't fall for Satan's lies and
think you can go "just a little bit" astray: Satan will lead you
further astray than you want to go. and it will cost you more
than you are prepared to pay!

On Wednesday, October 17th, we will host our monthly din-
ner. Please invite friends, neighbors, and family to enjoy it
with us.Our nursery is now in operation during both worship
service and Sunday school, so NO MORE EXCUSES for cou-
ples with young children for missing church!
Remember, at Lydia, everybody is somebody and Christ is
everything. ,.

The Cool Down
Lap

The last shall be first

by Alan Ross

Maybe there's something to
this hare/tortoise thing.
New Nextel Cup Chase
points leader Jeff Gordon
showed NASCAR fans that
it's perfectly alright to start
near the back of the pack-
if you've got a shell of a
car. Not that coming from
the back hasn't been done
hundreds of. times on
NASCAR's ovals, but Tal-
ladega ain't no Bristol. One
lap down means 2.666 miles
around the track, not a half-
mile. A caution doesn't real-
ly allow a driver to work
easily through a field blast-
ing on the edge of insanity
and milli-fractions from
"the Big One."

Gordon dawdled among the
backmarkers of the UAW-
Ford 500 last Sunday for
over three quarters of the
race, even enduring a pit-
lane penalty 48 laps from
the end, before finding the
Hendricks Motorsports
train of Jimmie Johnson
and Casey Mears thatbe-
igan its surge through the
field, roaring into the first
three spots on Lap 180 of
the 188-lap affair. At Tal-
ladega that translates to the
second line of cars (in this
instance, the bottom cara-
van) pushing for the best
draft. The drafting concept
never works better than at
Talladega, where often.the
only way to pass is to get an
I-owe-you-one "push." Come
the critical time of the race,
in the late stages, there's
more politicking taking
place on pit row than a

straw poll caucus in Iowa.

The racing, incidentally,
was as good as it gets.

It was refreshing to catch a
restrictor-plate race where
green-flag racing ruled the
final laps. Too often the big
speedway battles are
marred by late-race lapses,
collapses, smashes, and
crashes. The Big One, of
course, made it's obligatory
appearance at the famed Al-
abama speedway, collaring
11 drivers 43 laps from the
finish, and naturally, Tal-
ladega fans wept when
their favorite, Dale Earn-
hardt Jr., who led more laps
(31) than anyone until his
demise, exited the circuit
with a blown engine on Lap
136.

It was left to the Hendricks
boys to catch the Dodges of
Ryan Newman and Kurt
Busch, with a little Tony
Stewart thrown in for good
measure. Johnson seemed
to have the look of a winner
when the Hendricks train
pushed him to the lead just
five laps from the end. The
conclusion was a thing of
beauty, with Gordon getting
last-lap pushes from Dave
Blaney and Tony Stewart to
nose ahead of Johnson, in
the process vaulting into
the top spot in the Chase
standings. A winner for the
80th time in his storied ca-
reer, Gordon likely would
be the first to admit that
there's a bit of hare run-
ning flat out in his tortoise.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK:

DIXIE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS BUDGET
CONCERNS AS THE STATE MOVES TO-
WARD SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE SESSION

The latest information from the state on the budget doesn't
look bright for the next three years. The state figures re-
leased showing a two billion shortfall in revenues for this
year. The reasons for these figures are attributed to many
factors, such as a slow home sales market, people not moving
into the state because of inflated land prices and high proper-
ty taxes, the economic boom because of past hurricanes has
subsided, medicaid and classroom reduction needs continue
to be costly to the state, and tourism has slowed.

This year the state is moving nonrecurring dollars into the
budget to prop it up. This poses an even greater problem for
next year if revenues don't increase, making a greater short-
fall in funds needed to run the state.

The Governor has called a special legislative secession to
deal with the shortfall of revenue in this year's budget. They
have promised to hold schools harmless, but reality and rea-
son says this will be difficult because the majority of the
general revenue in the state budget goes to education, 51.1%
(as shown in chart below)


The state has already instructed us to cut our budget for this
year. This certainly puts a hardship on small districts such,
as ours because of small limited budgets. The first cuts that
we have made are in the nonessential items, such as: field
trips, sports events, non-essential transportation, after school
utilities, the use of substitutes and many others. If the state
requires deeper budget cuts, then we will have to look at per-
sonnel, because this is the largest portion of our budget.'
Salaries and benefits consume 80% of our budget each year.
(see chart below)


To complicate our budget even more, our district is experi-
encing what many other districts are experiencing., which is
a declining enrollment for this year. The latest student en-
rollment figures show that we are short of our projection by
22 students. This financially means the district revenue will
decrease by $88,000. This is not a good year to have declining
enrollment on top of budget reductions. But this is what is
happening all across the state because of slowing economic
growth. (

As, this year's budget cuts play out, we are determined to see
that the integrity of the classroom and vital student services
are maintained as our state moves through tough times.

23rd Annual Down home Days
November 3, 2007. The host and
location for this event has
changed but little else. Trenton
Community Church of the
* Nazarene is the new host and the
location is two miles west of town
on highway 26. The idea is to al-
low craft vendors to display and
sel their crafts. There will also be
lots of music, games for the kids,
food vendors and a chance to
greet your neighbors. This is a
tri-county event with a great his-
tory for our area. On board al-
ready: a petting zoo, several craft
artists and a rumor of an early
"Stop-by with Santa!" Interested
vendors please call Merle at 352-
436-1057.

BAD NEWS BEARS
continued from page one


...Friday night as they took on the Indians from Fort White.
The Bears kicked to the Fort White and the Indians lost no
time in miiv in Ith-, ball down field to score. They couldn't add
the extra point and kicked to DC. Answering the challenge,
the Bears iusiniX tIif- speed and agility of Rodney Scott, scored
on fhe second play of their drive tying the score. Nine plays
and thr-e penalties later the Indians add seven to the board.
This was a lot of action in the first six minutes of the game
and during the next six minutes both teams tried to gain the
advantage, uitiii fake punt plays, and quarterback sneaks.
On the first play of the second quarter, Scott literally plows
his way to the end zone and scores. Scott takes the hand-off
from Keene and makes the conversion play for the extra two
and the Bears lead 14-13. The Indians answer the Bears and
score on the kick-off, adding an extra point and they gain the
lead. The Bears fumble on the kick and the Indians recover,
pushing to field goal range and post three after the kick, they
lead 23-14. The Bears not to be outdone, answer with a Keene-
Scott combination and Scott scores again, adding the conver-
sion makes the score 22-23 with the Bears trailing by one.
Late in the second quarter Fort White, using a Dixie County
fumble, scores again, to open their lead by seven more points
30-22. For the Bears this was their last chance in the first half
to make anything at all happen.
During the second half, the Bears allowed the Indians to
score four more times for a final score of 58-22. Coach Wilker-
son commented to the team "I have never lost a'game at Dixie
County by that big a score, I wish I could say they were that
good a team, but I can't they are. not. They are just an average
team and they whipped us. You don't win games on Friday
night's; you win them on Monday thru Wednesday We need to
get some guts and fortitude and get better.We still could get
back into this thing; if Taylor County beats Fort White we
beat Taylor." Well I hope the coach is right and the team finds
what they need. The Bears will certain need all they can
muster, as they take to road and travel to Hamilton County,
who are 2-3 for the season. Let's all make the trip and support
the Bears beat the Trojans. GO BIG RED!

RRMS WINb UUUBLE-HEADERU
AGAINST OAK HALL

by Chuck Elton
The Ruth Rains Ranger Volleyball team beat Oak Hall four games
to win a double header. The first {wo games were played against
the Six Grade members of Oak Hall. The Rangers took both
games 25 14 and 25 10.
Every athlete and coach should have been at this game. Even tho
the Oak Hall 6th Grade players were just learning to play and did
not stand a chance against the Rowdy Rangers, the girls were
playing with all their hearts. No getting mad, slamming the ball
down or yelling. They were "up" for every play and every point was
celebrated with screams of joy, jumping up and down and high
five's. Even the Ranger fans were impressed with their attitude.
The second set against the seventh and eighth graders from Oak
Hall gave the Rowdy Rangers a little more competition. But the
Rangers played tough and beat the older girls 25 14 and 25 19.

ed if the Board of County Commissioners'
is required to cut back 3%, the other offices
need to share the same load. Coordinator
Bellot noted that staff had included the re-
quested budgets of the Constitutional Offi-
cers as presented. 'Commissioner Hays
asked if there were an outline easy to un-
derstand so the public will know how the
County's money is being spent and where it
comes from. Coordinator Bellot said he
would look into this. Mr. Alexander stated.
the new dispatch center is in the budget for
911 and instead of duplicating monies,
Emergency Services and the Sheriff can
work together to create one central dis-
patch center. Coordinator Bellot stated the
important thing is there is a dispatcher
trained to take life threatening calls. He
stated we are trying to fund something now,
that was needed 16 years ago but funding
has never been available. Mr. Alexander.
stated since the-funding is through 911,
SCIC.training and Emergency Medical Dis-
patch training can be obtained free of,


and seconded by Commissioner Johnson.
Board approved.

DARIAN BROWN, FIRE CHIEF:
Mr. Brown appeared before the Board giving
an update on fire calls received for the
County and man hours used to handle those%
calls. Mr. Brown stated the new air com-
pressor has been installed. This new air
compressor will keep up with the current air
system and regulations. Along with the
compressor, an explosion container was also
purchased. Mr. Brown informed the Board
Scott Garner had applied for an extraction
equipment grant for which Dixie County had
been awarded. .

Mr. Brown explained the State requires a
minimum of 160 hours of fire training for
volunteers and everyone is expected to be in,
compliance with this requirement. Mr.
Brown added the fire training course will
start in five weeks. In additionto the volun-
teer requirements, full time firefighters must
complete a 480 hour training course for
their full certification. Mr. Brown clarified
that there will still be positions on the roster
open for volunteer firefighters that are not in
compliance with the law because there are
many jobs that do not consist of actually
fighting the fires that are equally important.
He stated those not certified will be re-
quired to wear orange helmets so they are
not confused with certified firefighters.
Commissioner Lamb stated the Board of
Dixie County Commissioners'would never
ask anyone to break the law. Mr. Alexander
stated Emergency Services values each and
every volunteer firefighter they have and
hate having to separate the trained from the
untrained. The Board stated they appreci-
ate every volunteer certified or not. Mr.
Alexander explained Dixie County is not try-
ing to push for an elaborate fire department
they are just trying to comply with the law.
He clarified this is not an attempt to remove
anyone, from the roster and no one will be
removed due to a lack of having the proper
certification. Mr. Brown stated the call load
for Dixie County has increased 120% from
where it was two years ago which puts Dixie
County in line with Taylor County which is a
much larger department.

Mr. Brown stated the budget for the fire de-
partment went to special assessment in
2002 and they operate off of considerably
less than $200,000 per year and the budget
has only increased $20,000 since 2002.
Mr. Brown exclaimed they are not capable of
continuing on this budget. Mr. Brown asked
that each commissioner meet with him at
their leisure so he could answer any budget
questions they might have, as well as fur-
ther explain the departments needs.

CINDY BELLOT, LIBRARIAN:
Mrs. Bellot appeared before the Board stat-
ing there were 855 in attendance at the
summer programs held at the Library.

ARTHUR BELLOT, COUNTY COORDINATOR:
Mr. Bellot asked Mr. Paul Stressing to step
to the podium for the Board to ask him
some questions concerning the engineering
firms that were interviewed at the previous
workshop and the EOC. Commissioner
Lamb asked why one firm was more in-
formed about the EOC than the others. Mr.
Stressing stated only one of the three firms
went above and beyond to obtain more in-
formation on the EOC and the products that
would be used for construction. Commis-
sioner Hays asked if everyone was present-


charge.

HERBERT FUQUAY, CONCERNED CITI-
ZEN
Mr. Fuquay appeared before the Board re-
garding money for secondary road projects.
He suggested a one cent sales tax designat-
ed for secondary road projects. He stated
this would generate more revenue. Mr.
Fuquay stated if the Board did not want to
vote on this, then he would be willing to put
this on the ballot where the citizens of Dix-
ie County can decide. Coordinator Bellot
stated that as far as he can determine the
County could only enact another half cent
of sales tax and that would by statute by re-
quired to go to indigent health care. Attor-
ney McMillan stated she would research
this and get back to the Board with an an-
swer.

LEENETTE MCMILLAN, COUNTY ATTOR-
NEY:
Attorney McMillan presented a revised sub-
division fee schedule which includes the ap-
plication and engineer's fee schedule. She
clarified this is for developers only. The

NRCS ANNOUNCES SIGN iUP CUTOFF
DATE FOR MAJOR FARM BILL
PROGRAM
GAINESVILLE --The 2008 Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (EQIP) application period will remain open until
November 13, 2008 according to Jeffrey Woods, Assistant
State Conservationist for the USDA-Natural Resources Con-
servation Service (NRCS) in Florida.
EQIP is a key program under the 2002 Farm Bill that pro-
vides federal cost-share funds to working farms and ranches
for conservation improvements.
'EQIP provides incentive payments and cost-share funds to
private agricultural and livestock producers to implement
conservation practices," said Woods. "It promotes agricultur-
al production and environmental quality as compatible goals.
And, it is extremely important for producers to note that the
application deadline for the 2008 Program Year is November
13th. "Woods says.
'The accelerated process makes coming in to our field offices
early to meet with the NRCS staff more important than ever,"
said Woods. "I would encourage our farmers and ranchers to
come in and visit with our staff now. We know that produc-
ers that get in early have more time to resolve certain pro-
gram or land eligibility issues.
EQIP, like all NRCS programs, is a voluntary program that is
intended to yield high quality, productive soils; clean and
abundant water; healthy plant and animal communities;
clean air; an adequate energy supply; and working farms and
ranchlands.
For Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy counties, the program is fo-
cused on practices to address,local resource concerns identi-
fied by each county's Soil & Water Conservation Board.
Some of these practices include spraying for invasive plant
species, rotational grazing, improving irrigation methods,
no-till cropping, and creating wildlife habitat.

19th ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS WILL BE AT A
NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR
Where has the time gone to? It'seems that it has been no.time
that we were working on last years Festival and now it is
time to really get busy once again to bring everyone another
fabulous event. This year we are going to utilize the beautiful
Fort Fanning Park which has a lot of room for providing the
space for all of the various vendors to have a nice setup. For
those that are not familiar with the Fort Fanning Park, it is
located across Highway 19 from Fanning Springs State Park.
It begins at the Suwannee River at the bridge and runs be-
hind the Lighthouse Restaurant, Cadillac Motel and connects
to the Nature Coast Greenway Trail. The Fanning Springs
Chamber office is located at the junction of the Greenway
Trail and the Fort Fanning Park on Florida St.
The CFG Car Club willbe holding the famous Classic Car
Show in conjunction with the Festival this year. They will be
bringing in many of these Classics for everyone to admire,
,as you know each of the owners are very proud of their
*prized beauty They will be judged with awards being pre-
sented to the winners.
,We will have some varied entertainment this year with a lo-
cal dance group, different musicians, and much more that
,you will want to come see. Then there is always the many art
& craft vendors that have such beautiful handiwork to show
,off and this really makes for getting your Christmas shop-
,ping done, especially for someone that has everything! Here
'you can find,something different to put under the Christmas
tree.
'Of course you will get hungry smelling the aroma coming
from the food vendors that are enticing you to come and try
their specialty. It really gets hard trying to choose which one
you like best as they are all scrumptiously delicious!
They it is time for the fabulous Yellow Rubber Ducky Race on
the Suwannee River that is sponsored by the Suwannee River
Cruisers Boat Club. Last year they put in several thousand
ducks and what a sight to behold as you wait anxiously for
the first 3 ducks to cross the finish line. Some great prizes
wait for the winners of these cute ducks.
Then to climax this special day, everyone will crowd the
banks of the Suwannee River to watch the
Beautifully decorated boats come up the river for all to ad-
mire. As they proceed up to the Suwannee Gables and dock
everyone will be cheering them on. The judges really have a
difficult time choosing the winners in the small, medium and
large categories. Everyone comes away a winner! To enter
your boat in the parade costs only $20.00.
Anyone that would like to participate in this years Festival,
whether it be art & crafts, food or entering the boat parade,
look for our application in this weeks Tri County Bulletin.
Clip it out, fill in and send in with your check or money or-
der. That is all you need to do. If you would like to find out
more, please call the Chamber at 352-463-9089 or Velma at 352-
339-2248.

DEER PRESENT UNIQUIE
CHALLENGES TO AREA
DRIVERS

Meriden CT October through December is the high season
for car crashes with deer. Each year, car collisions with deer
account for more than 150 human and nearly one and a half
million deer fatalities. Experts attribute it to the combina-
tion of deer mating and migration habits and shortened day-
light hours.
"More drivers are on the road at dawn and dusk, the very
time of day when deer are most active," cautioned Ray Paler-
mo, director of public relations for Response Insurance, a na-
tional car insurer. '"A car striking a 200-pound adult deer can
not only result in the, death of the deer, but also incur an av-
erage of two thousand dollars in damage to the vehicle."
Palermo suggested a few basic cautions for drivers.
Scan a wide swath of the roadside. Slow down when ap-
proaching a deer standing near the side of the road and be.
prepared. If startled, the deer can bolt onto the road and into
your path. If necessary, honk your horn and flash your lights
to try to scare it away
Be alert for more deer than you may see at that moment.
Where there is one deer, there are often more nearby
In many instances, it is best not to swerve around the deer
since the deer may move in the same direction. You may also
inadvertently hot another vehicle, or go off onto a dangerous
shoulder. Unless certain of those road factors, it is often best
to simply brake and continue in your lane of traffic.
Be particularly careful at dawn and dusk and when driving
either over a hill or around a curve, where visibility is limit-
ed. Use your high beams to give you a greater area of visibili-
ty and allow you to see the deer's eyes sooner.
Deer whistles or ultrasonic deer avoidance system attached
to vehicles have never been proven to work by independent
studies and may give drivers a false sense of security.
Take deer crossing signs seriously, particularly those in-
stalled specifically for this time of year. Be particularly cau-
tious in wooded and agricultural areas where there is little
distance between the road and the woods.
More driver safety information is available at HYPERLINK
"http://www.Response.com/safety" www.Response.com/safe-
ty.


Jimmy Chavous got lucky last Wednesday morning when he shot (ar-
rowed) this big 8-point buck in the Rambsey-Bend Hunting Club.
Jimmy said thanks to Chris Cannon, who helped him recover this
deer with the help of Timmy Cannon's dog, "Old Susie". "Chris and
that dog did an excellent job," said Jimmy
