Is-Rudy too liberal?
Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani has been criticized by con-
servatives as being "too liberal." One should be inclined to give that thought serious
consideration, at least if one is looking for a conservative candidate with a chance to
win next year's presidential election,
As Mayor of New York City, Rudy headed up a remarkably efficient re-
sponse to the Islamic terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. That speaks well of a man
seeking the nation's top executive position. If elected, he would inherit serious prob-
lems in the Middle East, the extent of which cannot be accurately evaluated atthis
point, but it's safe to say the problem will not have gone away by this time next year.
In this regard, Giuliani does not come across as an appeaser, having taken
on the Mob in NYC and hung tough even after his criminal adversaries put out a con-
tract on him. Considering the fact that the Islamic culture itself seems to regard any
accommodation to be a sign of weakness, a president given to a conciliatory approach
would be a disaster.
Where Rudy has a problem is with what might be termed the "Religious
Right." We're talking here mainly about Christian conservatives who feel that the na-
tion's moral compass was more accurately aligned 50 years ago than is currently the
case-and who's to say it isn't so?
Rudy Giuliani has come out in at least qualified support of abortion, gay
rights and gun control, the latter position adding the NRA to the roster of those who
question his acceptability as their candidate, And these are legitimate concerns,
However, these "social issues" will in all likelihood be resolved, not by a
president or even a Congress. If past experience is any indication, they will be re-
solved by the federal judiciary,
Giuliani recently articulated "200 reasons" why he believes he would make
a better president than any of the Democratic contenders, He was referring to the esti-
mated 200 federal judges-including as many as three on the Supreme Court-that the
next president will appoint. Rudy Giuliani has committed himself to appointing "strict
constructionists" if he is elected, That means he wants federal judges who will adhere
to constitutional priorities, after the fashion of Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas,
Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts, as opposed to the gaggle of liberal ju-
rists who prefer treating the Constitution as an "evolving document,"
Evangelist Pat Robertson does not speak for the entire Christian communi-
ty, nor is he the authoritative voice of conservatism in America. However his endorse-
ment of Giuliani is worth considering. His evaluation appears to be that'a) Rudy has
the best chance of any Republican candidate of getting elected (the polls support this);
and that b) he would support the conservative agenda by appointing federal judges
who would adhere to their constitutional mandate rather than legislating from the'
bench.
Please understand that this is not intended as an endorsement of Rudy
Giuliani, There are other candidates whose conservative credentials appear to be more
appealing. However Giuliani is a shrewd politician who understands full well that he
needs to tailor his approach to the people he wants voting for him, and that we're not
talking here about just the people of New York City.
The state of New York has been reliably in the Democratic camp in recent
years, and it looks like the Empire State's Democratic junior senator, that being
Madame Hillary will be carrying their banner in 2008. Rudy Giuliani is perhaps the
only Republican contender who could garner enough support to possibly carry New
York, a state which could swing the election.

- U U EUml


First of all, I want to thank you for your opinions and thoughts. 1 am sorry
that you thought it necessary for me to respond with urgency but please un-
derstand that I am fulltime college student with a full time job; these two
things tend to have priority over many things in my life. With that said,my
mother did not respond IN Place of me but instead in SUPPORTING me., -
Therefore, I do not appreciate the comment you made in the beginning of
your last letter I had all intentions of replying, but one thing I will not stoop
to is auguring about my personal thoughts and concerns especially through
a news paper. I have noticed that you missed the entire point of my first let-
ter and somehow twisted the meaning, so let me remind everyone of that let-
ter It was not to point fingers at any one person, it was not attacking anyone,
it was simply voicing my opinion about the way the program handles
these children and their feelings So Mrs. Everett, if you or you r husband (a
Coach) took offense to that letter I do apologize, I would not find any other
reason for the defensive letters you have written other that a guilty con-
'ioS _A ra fl,)or a itme packing my bag. and nwvhing back. nruypeople
v.,:'o:Il love dnt. mni, nephew Kinludled. But I ha.e b rgun a life in Pensacola
atnd A,-'in continue to':ri-,er mny el,.ation t1oi better myself Dixie Countyhas
done well for me. But I made an opportunity for myself to get out of that
small'area and on to bigger and better things. Just because I have moved
away does not mean that I should not concern myself with what is going on
in my family life back home. I also cannot help but point out that this issue
did not even deal with the particular team that your son played on so there-
fore your acknowledge of the issue would not be the same as ours. Once
again, Please read and understand that my personal concerns were not
based off of hears say My Mother is very active in the lives of her grandchil-
dren and has seen many things that were not acceptable, of which were not
mentioned in my first letter so since you reverted back to calling my con-
cerns "hear say" this would mean that you are degrading the worth of my
Mother's word because she explained to you in her letter that she is the one
who told me of the issues. So I do not appreciate nor respect that allegation.
But you found yourself believing a "hear say" comment when you so stated
that "many told you" my mother would reply instead of me. Please choose
your words wisely On another note, one thing that was observed at the first
game of the season was a coach walked past each player and asked if each
had a chance to play; I commend that coach for that. Unfortunately that was
never done again throughout the rest of the season. So in reference to your
concern of whether my nephew plays because he wants to, YES, that boy
LOVES the game of football and he sure does not have the character of a
quitter, but that does not give his "leaders" a right to discourage him by not
allowing him equal play time because he is not as rambunctious as the other
boys may be. You cannot tell me that if after 3 years son was still denied
playing time that you would not be upset If it were up to me or my mother ,
he would play in Gilchrist County His daddy played in chiefland when we
were little because even than DC Pop WV:.uner pi-o:rami .As dL(-o:aniz'tal and
iLUlf'ati My brother ind I b:th plLa.ed pl-ports Lor Dix:ie o,.,nrr, Sho.L. Uand
loved it, nor never had an issue, so this is not a concern with the school sys-
tem. But the youth pro9gram.The Whole thing that drives me insane is that
the children must PAY to participate and yet, all get their money's worth.
Am I suppose to find this fair? No Ma'am! I understand that these coaches
spend a lot of time throughout the week preparing fro these games and that
not every parent, grandmother,nor child can all be pleased. Many of us (fam-
ily of players) are unable to "put on a coaches' shirt" or have more involve-
ment due to full-time, obligations, distance, ect. So therefore the way I chose
to seep in was through voicing my concerns in hopes that someone would
understand and look at the best interest of these Kid's learning capabilities
and not so much whether they win or lose. From my understanding, these
teams had to be split because there were so many children on each team that
there was no way they would all get to play Yet, they do not all get to play
anyway so this defeats the whole purpose of splitting them up, does it not?
Unless it was more about the money than the actuality of these boys getting
to play: but that is another issue. Many of the coaches involved I know per-
sonally I have respect for most of them and especially MrPJ. Hope That man
was a light in my high school years and was always an encouraging man. My
letter was never to judge nor criticize the character of any of these coaches,
but make apparent that maybe their concerns on the field are not are for is
age group. In closing I want to say Shelly that I do know why you have taken
my concerns so offensive. Nor do I understand why you have chosen to com-
municate about this in awayas if you do not know me. If you wish to re-
spond to this letter that will be your prerogative, but I have nothing further
to say about this issue. One thing that I do agree with you is that ACTIONS
do speak louder than words, But how can these boys prove ACTIONS if they
never get their chance to actually play in a game? An Athlete.will never show
full potential by sitting the bench and never getting a fair chance to play in a
" game. And I am sorry but 2-3 minutes per game is not a fair chance!

1O INFORMATION



500 COMPONENT



1)000 WRECKAGE


Dear Editor:
In my opinion the Bush Administration inflicted the
worst insult upon all the defendants of the unknown sol-
diers who gave their lives protecting the people of Ameri-
ca. They sent Dick Cheney, Believe it or not.
Instead of having a highly decorated serviceman or
woman lay the wreath at the Tomb of The Unknown Sol-
diers, the Bush administration sent a draft dodger that has
never served a single day in the Service.
I hope and pray that the good Lord will comfort all those
families not onlyof the unknown, but all the families of
the known heroic men and and women who gave the
supreme sacrifice in defense of their country.
I think it, would be appropriate for George Bush to go on
television and apologize for such a terrible insult to all
Americans.

TRAFFIC STOP YIELDS 35,




GRAMS OF COCAINE


Old Town, Florida- What started as a traffic stop lead to the arrest of a Cross City man for Trafficking in Cocaine.
On November 6, 2007 at 9:24 pm, deputies with the Sheriff's Office stopped a 1990 Lincoln for a traffic violation.

During the process of the traffic stop the Sheriff's Office used a K-9 narcotic detection dog and the dog alerted on
the vehicle. Upon searching the vehicle and the occupants, deputies discovered that one of the occupants had ap-
proximately 35 grams of powder cocaine concealed inside of his pants. The cocaine was packaged in a plastic
baggie. De-Armus Ce-Zahn Lovette, age 34 of Cross City was arrested and charged with Trafficking Cocaine.
The street value of the cocaine was estimated to be $1,700 in powder form and $5,700, if the cocaine was converted
into crack cocaine. According to Sheriff Hatcher, cocaine use is prevalent across all socioeconomic strata, in-
cluding age, demographics, economic, social, political, religious, and livelihood. Cocaine in its various forms
comes in second only to cannabis as the most popular illegal recreational drug in the United States, and is num-
ber one in street value sold each year.
The estimated U.S. cocaine market exceeded $35 billion in street value for the year 2003. Thereby showing that
there is a tremendous demand for cocaine in the U.S. market Lovette remains in the Dixie County Jail on a
$250,000 Bond.

recognition of Independence Day and the continued sup-
port to our disabled veterans and communities. The
event will start and end at the post and will involve at
least five different posts within the 4th District area.
Remember the success of this event means the proceeds

The Jacksonville Police League sponsored a competition
for the martial arts in Jacksonville recently, Larry Tay-
lor's karate students won four awards. They worked
very hard training for this competition. We are proud of
all of them.
Do you think you are too old to engage in this kind of
training? Well think again, because Ellis Dosher is 77
,years old and he won a trophy in his division. The stu-
dents range from very young, as you can see from the
photo to many "not so young" adults.

Old Town Elementary School's Fifth Grade students had a special visitor
., -..from the Verizon Telecom Pioneers. While on vacation visiting a relative
from Stroudsbug, PA, Sara Depaolo chose our fifth grade students to re-
ceive free dictionaries, the students were very excited and thankful for
these wonderful gifts. Our students really enjoyed the sign language sec-
tion, and all of the facts about the states and the presidents. The section
has helped in our social studies instruction about America.

of training which included classroom study and practical in-
struction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safe-
ty and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety An empha-
sis was also placed on physical fitness.

designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

Class of 2011 says "Thank You"
This year's freshman class learned right away that winning takes hard work. During the last week of September
DCHS Homecoming week presented many challenging events for the freshman class to show what they were, really
made of. The students rose to the occasion by working many long hours on their banner, skit and float.- All their hard
work paid off. The freshman class placed 2nd for their banner. 4th for their skit and 1st for their float. The freshman
class placed 2nd in the over all Homecoming category Not bad fQr the DCHS new comers- It's safe to say that the class
of 2011 has what it takes to survive the remaining 3 DCHS Homecomings that await
them in their future.
Many people in the community helped to make the freshman banner, skit and float such
a success. The freshman class would like to thank the following people for their contri-
Ltim e bution to the Freshman class for the 2007 Homecoming.
I.Danny Liles( use of Liles Hardware warehouse for float site)
Steinhatchee Ace Hardware( donation of supplies)
Shamrock Sod(donation of sod and hardware supplies)
r- Cost Free A&K Nursery( use of plant material and rocks on float
Foodland( donation of napkins)

BAKER COUNTY MYSTERY CREATURE


MAY BE FOX SQUIRREL


The speculation about the mystery creature in Baker Coun-
ty is running rampant. Stories run the gamut from an es-
caped ape to a juvenile "big foot," according to media reports.
However, according to officials with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), there may be an-
other explanation an orange phase fox squirrel.
Fox squirrels are the largest species of tree squirrel. They
have distinct color phases ranging from reddish brown to
pale grey backs and red to yellow-orange bel.
lies. These animals can be about 2 feet in
length,.when measuring the tail and body. They\
have broad tails, coarse, grizzled fur and short
ears.
FWC Officer Ken Holmes, the investigator on
the mystery
creature case, said the animal in question is
not behaving like a primate, especially wit h all
the nocturnal activity
The first sighting of the mystery creature oc-
curred at the
end of October. A homeowner reported hearing
and seeing something in a tree behind his
house. Holmes went to investigate. Although ""
the investigator acknowledges that there was
scntething about 100 feet up in a pine tree in a
nest-like structure, he was unable to identify it.
The homeowner told Holmes that the creature
had broken into some jelly donuts that were at the site.
Holmes suggested that since the creature had exhibited an
interest in the donuts, that the homeowner should leave addi-
tional treats at the base of the tree to lure the creature back
to the ground. Holmes then instructed the homeowner to call
once the animal was out of. the tree.

The creature came and went with no one seeing it.
"I'm not discounting anything. However, this creature, what-
ever it may be, simply isn't acting like a primate (monkey),"
Holmes said. "When it climbed up in the nest and hid, that
wasn't primate behavior. An orangutan would have peered
over the side to watch what was going on down below.
"Orangutans don't walk very well, so they swing from limbs,
and it's hard to swing from pine tree limbs. Orangutans are
messy
eaters. If the animal were an orangutan, you
% would ex\ pect to find pieces of donuts, or
fl'ruit scattered all over the place, rather than
just neatly nibbled."
The next sighting was reported Wednesday
when a homeowner reported hearing his
dogs bark and a shadowy figure running
across the roof of his dogs' kennel late that
night. The homeowner didn't get a good'look
at the creature since it was dark.
Thursday. Holmes went to the site and set
S up a culveLrt trap,
S'. "baiting it with bananas and apples, which
had been donated by KC's Produce in Lake


"The trap was still empty Friday morning,"'
Holmes said.
"However, the story attracted quite a crowd to the area, so the
animal may have been simply avoiding the people."
Holmes continues to monitor the situation.
"The possibility that it may be a fox squirrel is a good
one," Holmes said.
Holmes speculates that if the trap catches any wildlife, it
will be of the native variety

ORLANDO HUNTER AT SHANDS
AFTER
BEING SHOT IN BUTT

A 45-year-old Orlando man is recovering at Shands
Hospital in Gainesville after being shot by a companion
Monday in a hunting accident.
Raymond McPherson was hit in the right buttock as
he walked out of the woods around 6 p.m. on private prop-
erty in Nassau County The shooter, Robert T. Duszynski
III, 22, also of Orlando, told Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) officers he heard move-
ment and fired one time at what he thought was a deer.,
FWC Lt. David Lee said Duszynski was using a .30-.30
rifle. McPherson was airlifted to Shands. His injuries are
not considered-to be life-threatening.
Lee said Duszynski was charged with failure to ob-
tain a Florida hunting license and failure to complete a
hunter safety course. Other charges are pending.
Any hunter who hunts in Florida and is born on or |
after June 1, 1975 is required to complete a hunter safety
course.
Bill Cline, the FWC's section leader for Hunter Safety
and Public Shooting Ranges, said, "Sometimes the best
shot is no shot at all. Hunting is a much safer activity
than it's ever been, but the issue here is identifying your
target, and knowing what is beyond your target." .
Although deer hunters in Florida are not required by'
law to wear hunter orange clothing on private property,
Cline said it is highly recommended.
Both men were wearing camouflage clothing, but nei-
ther was wearing hunter orange. Additionally. Cline noted
that hunters hunting from tree stands should always wear
a safety vest.
One hunter died last season in a firearms-related
hunting accident in Florida, but two hunters died after
falling from tree stands, Cline said.


path. It was close enough that their tail swirls darken the'
water all around the boat. Some of the school kids that I
.had been talking to on the dock first saw this' and started
yelling for him to stop.
11/17/07 Manatee sightings
Fanning Springs 4 animals including. Piety and Manny
Manatee Springs 17 maximum at one time. but I am sure
that at least other animals came and Went.

I did one impromptu on the water Manatee Observation

Boater in a Bayliners speeding towards the 13 manatees
and the No Entry Buoy was diverted. After
introducing myself, I pointed the animals
out. They became aware of how close they
had come to hitting the animals. Then I
Made him aware of the designed buoy en-
try pattern, the family thanked me several
times coming and going.

Number of manatees Manatee Springs
started declining about 1:00,pm and the
numbers started increasing in the grass
beds upriver. By sunset there were only
two manatees in Zone 6. ,

While my Jeep and boat trailer were parked at Ushers
Landing and I was working Manatee Springs someone
broke into my Jeep. No windows were broken so they
probably used a slim jim. Reported incident to Park
Ranger and Park Law Enforcement. So far all that miss-
ing is my best pair of sunglasses, tools ($100), cash and'
change ($20) and 17 of the 18 gallons of gas that I put in
the tank before going to Usher Landing. At least they left
the battery.

11/18/07 Nlanatees sightings
Fanning Springs: 4 animals including Piety and Manny.
Manatee Springs: 13 animals the number of animals
stayed the same but the individual animals'changed. I
noticed different animals leaving and coming in. At one
time there were 3 pairs of cow/calves in Zone 6. I ob-
served all 3 pairs entering Zone 6 to nurse, rest and leave.

PROPOSED
CONSTITUTIONAL
AMENDMENT
TO BE VOTED ON
JANUARY 29, 2008
NOTICE OF
ELECTION
I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary
of State of the State of Flori-
da, do hereby give notice that
an election will be held in each
county in Florida, on January
29, 2008, for the ratification
or rejection of a proposed revi-
sion to the constitution of the
State of Florida.
No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4,
AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)
Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMP-
TIONS; LIMITATIONS ON
PROPERTY TAX
ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes
changes to. the State Constitu-
tion relating to property taxa-
"tfon.

With respect,to homestead
property, this revision: (1) in-
creases the homestead exemp-.
tion except for school district
taxes and (2) allows homestead.
property owners/to transfer up
to $500,000 of their Save-Our-
Homes benefits to their next
homestead. With respect to
nonhomestead property, this'
revision (3), provides a $25,000
exemption for tangible
personal property and (4) lim-
its assessment increases for
specified nonhomestead real
property except for school dis-
trict taxes.
In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead ex-
emption by exempting the as-
sessed value between $50,000
and $75,000. This exemption
does not apply to school dis-
trict taxes.

(2) Provides for the transfer of
accumulated Save-Our-Homes
benefits. Homestead property
owners will be able to transfer
their Save-Our-Homes benefit
to anew homestead within 1
year and not more than 2 years
after relinquishing their previ.
ous homestead; except, if this
revision is approved by the
electors-inhlanuary of 2008 1.*.
and if the new homestead is
established on January 1, 2008,
the previous homestead must
have been relinquished in
2007. If the new homestead has
a higher just value than the
previous one. the accumulated
benefit can be transferred; if
the new homestead has a lower
just value, the amount of bene-
fit transferred will be reduced.
The transferred benefit may
not exceed $500.000. This provi-
sion applies to all taxes.

(3) Authorizes an exemption
from property taxes of $25,000
of assessed value
of tangible personal property.
This provision applies to all
taxes.

(4)l Limits the assessment in-
creases for specified nonhome-
stead real property to
10 percent each year. Property
will be assessed at just value
following an improvement,
as defined by general law, and
may be assessed at just value
following a change of
ownership or control if provid-
ed by general law. This limita-
tion does not apply to school
district taxes. This limitation
is repealed effective January 1,
2019, unless renewed by a
vote of the electors in the gen-
eral election held in 20i8.
Further, this revision:

a. Repeals obsolete language
on the homestead exemption
when it was less
than $25,000 and'did not apply
uniformly to property taxes
levied by all local
governments.

b. Provides for homestead ex-
emptions to be repealed if a fu-
ture constitutional
amendment provides for as-
sessment of homesteads "at
less than just value" rather
than as currently provided "at
Sa specified percentage" of just
value.

c. Schedules the changes to
take effect upon approval by
Sthe electors and
operate retroactively to Janu-
ary 1, 2008, if approved in a


special election held on Janu-
ary 29, 2008, or to take effect
January 1, 2009, if approved in
the general election held in
November of 2008. The, limita-
tion on annual assessment in-
creases for specified real
property shall first apply to
the 2009 tax roll if this revi-
sion is approved in a special
election held on January 29,
2008, or shall first apply to the
2010 tax roll if this revision
is approved in the general elec-


tion held in November of 2008.

tions.--

sively by it for

tion may be granted only

dinances. An exemption so

sion of an existing business.
