SALES
TAXES ON
LAW FEES?

Florida's Finance and
Taxation Committee con-
sidered a proposal Tues-
day that would subject
service industries like
lawyers, accountants, and
financial services.

Approval of the measure
would require a constitu-
tional amendment.

The measure is being vig-
orously protested by CPA
organizations, citing a re-
cent repeal in Michigan of
a very similar measure.

In the current dismal eco-
nomic climate, it seems
unlikely that any new tax
increases would meet with
public approval. However,
industry leaders are
watching the deliberations
with a sense of alarm.

MALLORY SWAMP FIRE


BLANKETS DIXIE IN SMOKE


4'


On Monday, February 11, 2008 the Ad-
vocate took a trip out to Mallory
Swamp to see, up close, the effects of
the swamp fire.

Arriving on the scene, which took
some doing, due to less-than-favorable
road conditions, the ground was seen to
be scorched as far as the eye could see.
Plumes of smoke rose from the hori-
zon. The occasional whirlwind sprang
from the smoldering ground lifting


smoke high into the sky

We could not, for safety reasons, get
too close to the larger fires, but the en-
tire area around them smoked and radi-
ated heat, as bulldozer crews worked to
crush out the underbrush before it
could re-ignite.

The latest report from the Division of
Forestry states that the fire is about
80% contained.


An application by Carolyn McPeek, to amend the Offi-
cial Zoning Atlas of the Land Development Regula-
tions, by changing the zoning district from Environ-
mentally Sensitive-4 (ESA-4) to Commercial Neighbor-
hood (CN) on the property located across CR349 from
the First District Community Center, Dixie County,
Florida, has been approved by the Zoning board. The
property is to be a beauty shop and had been zoned as
such in the past, but from lack of use as such had re-
verted to its previous zoning.
A petition brought to the BOCC by Doug Anderson and
Al J. Land to close the county maintained road to pub-
lic travel on SE 244 Ave and SE 835 Street was also
passed by majority vote. Discussion centered around
ownership of the land. Under Florida Statutes, any
road maintained by the county for 7 yrs becomes coun-
ty property
An application for temporary zoning for a used car sale
next to Napa in Old Town was also granted.
Bailey, Bishop, & Lane reported that tests on the road
foundation at the start of 351A identified it as sub stan-
dard as far as Lime Rock Density. Although the solu-
tion would cost an additional $80k, funds are available
within the grant and the work should start on Monday
the 11th.
Despite Dixie County's adoption of 911 addresses, EMS


are still having difficulty locating some properties dur-
ing call-outs. To assist emergency services, post your
E-911 numbers at the entrance to your driveway. Num-
bers need to be visible from the road and should be 4"
high for residential and 7" high for commercial with a
contrasting background. The boldness should be at
least 1/2". People living on shared private access roads
should name and post road names to improve emer-
gency response time.
Cheryl Nekola, the Mayor of Fanning Springs, during
the recent semimonthly meeting of the board of Com-
missioners of Dixie County, has asked the board to par-
ticipate in their bid for grant money to build a water
and sewage plant in Fanning Springs. Dixie county's
involvement so far is limited to being included in the
potential service area covered by the proposed new
plant. The county is open to the possibility of having
wholesale water provided by Fanning, but would take
responsibility for the supply to the new customer base
around Old Town.
The chairman expressed his feeling that changing the
state song is a slight on Dixie County, having it's east-
ern border defined by the Suwannee River. Thought is
being given to adopting "Old Folks at home" as the
County song.


By David Ryman

Richard and Cheryl Williams, of Old Town, are planning to
bring stock dog trials to Dixie County and have asked the
County Commissioners for approval to run the event, which
will contribute to the United States Border Collie Handlers As-
sociation (USBCHA) National Trials held in Sturgess, ND in
September.


SThe Board considered that it would be a good event, being '
wholesome family entertainment, but had reservations regard- Border Colle showing the sheep who's the boss
ing the temporary siting of between 5 and 15 self- contained RVs
and associated "dog" trailers on the privately owner property on NE Hwy 349. Mr. Williams pointed out that these
dogs are high dollar items and their owners would require being in close proximity at all times.

As with all public events in Dixie County, the attendance of EMS is required by ordinance.

For those who are not familiar with the sport, the first sheep dog trials were held in Wales in 1873 with the first
US trials in 1880. The event consists of a shepherd, his sheep dog, often a Border Collie, a small flock of sheep
and a pair of pens. The object is to extract the sheep from the first pen and by commanding the dog with calls
and whistles, herd them into the second pen as fast as possible. Sounds simple? Getting a dog to lie down when
you are 100yds away takes a lot of training and a smart dog. Add more sheep, a second dog and an obstacle
course and the skill involved increases and the fun begins.

The Board's reticence stems from abuse on previous occasions. It was also pointed out that a Tri County Wood-
stock would stretch emergency services well passed breaking point.

CITY COUNCIL
MEETING
HIGHLIGHTS
By David Ryman
The City Council heard
from Gladys Rollinson,
who would like to erect a
brick ornament or monu-
ment at the entrance to
Cross City cemetery Ms.
Rollinson has a collection
of bricks of about the
right age for use if the
Council can provide a ma-
son.
Greg Beauchamp, City At-
torney presented two ordi-
nances for their first read-
ings. The first, the Jake
brake ord., which will
make it an offense to use
an exhaust brake on vehi-
cles within the city limits.
While the term Jake
Brake technically only de-
scribes Jake Brake brand
engine brakes, it has be-
come a genericized trade-
mark and is often used to
refer to engine brakes or
compression release en-
gine brakes in general, es-
pecially on large vehicles
or heavy equipment. "Jake
Brake" is a registered
trademark of Jacobs Vehi-
cle Systems, Inc. **
The second concerned the
establishment of hours of
operation for all city
parks. Both potential ordi-
nances will have their sec-
ond readings at public
hearings after being ad-
vertised as such.
City Clerk, Angle Bush,
presented this month's
bills, which the Council
approved payment of. In-
cluded in this month is
the purchase of $94k of
equipment for the new
city park.
The Council also approved
the negotiation of a loan
from Drummond bank for
the purchase of a new ve-
hicle for the Police Dept.
Reports from the Police
and Fire departments
were accepted.


ROTC FLAG
FOLDING
By David Ryman
Col Elder of Dixie County
HS and some of his ROTC
troops took time out of
lessons to fold a 60' x 30'


national flag. The flag was
acquired from Santa Fe
Community College and
has been shortened by
about 7' to eliminate dam-
age sustained whilst per-
forming its duties. Even
though there were some
blustering winds, the
troops completed the task
with due reverence.

Romney Makes It Official
Following last week's "Super Tuesday," in
which he made a respectable second place showing in
Republican primaries and caucuses, former Massachu-
setts Governor Mitt Romney elected to pull out of the
race for the Republican presidential nomination.
It was probably a smart move for Romney, both
from a personal and a political standpoint. Essentially
ceding the nomination to John McCain kept him from
being embarrassed by belaboring a campaign that was
not going to put him in the party's top spot, let alone
the White House.
With McCain clearly out in front, but looking at
the problem of being 72 years old in November (Reagan
was getting lampooned by liberals for being 69 when he
took office in 1980), the GOP choice might be up for
grabs in 2012 regardless of how this year's presidential
race pans out. Otherwise, Romney would be 65 in 2012
and 69 in 2016, and only the most engrained Reagan-
haters persist in saying that the Gipper was too old to
take the office at 69.
A problem that Romney has is keeping himself
politically viable between now and then, whenever
"then" turns out to be. If McCain is elected come No-
vember, it would be very much to Romney's advantage
to share the ticket with his erstwhile rival. Sure,
they've been quite confrontational up to now, but do
you remember the 1980 campaign? No, I'm not talking
about Ted Kennedy challenging incumbent Jimmy
Carter for the Democratic nomination (which actually
left Carter looking good for once), I'm talking about
George H.W Bush using the term "voodoo economics"
to criticize Regai's fiscal priorities. But they resolved
their differences in plenty of time to win the election.
Bush served as Reagan's VP, and even carried the mo-
mentum for his own one term presidency
And please don't think that the current rivalry
between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will not be
resolved before the November election. It's not going to
take'them till August to figure out that they have a po-
tentially winning ticket there.
Thus, if Mitt Romney chooses to retain a mod-
icum of political presence between now and the con-
vention, giving McCain a cautious level of support, he
could be the party's vice-presidential candidate. Mc-
Cain's choice, of course, but it would serve to be a so-
lidifying ticket for the GOP, just as a Clinton-Obama
ticket would best serve the Democrats.
Let us not, however, write off Mike Huckabee.
So, what's Mike been, other than governor of the back-
ward southern state of Arkansas? On the other hand,
what does it take to get elected to the presidency? Hav-
ing been governor of Arkansas got it done for Bill Clin-
ton. There was a time when most of our presidents
were from Ohio-8 in all, but the last of these was War-
ren G. Harding, who took office in 1921. Times have
changed.
I don't look for Mike Huckabee to be a serious
threat to John McCain in the nomination contest, but if
McCain wants to get elected in November he'd better
get Huckabee on his side. Like Romney, Mike has an el-
ement of appeal to the conservative base, that McCain
lacks, and Mike Huckabee can muster the support of
Evangelical Christians, a core element of the Republi-
can base, some of whom aren't all that comfortable
with Romney; or for that matter, with McCain.
If John McCain can mend some fences within
his own party while convincing the voting public that
he actually is a viable alternative to any ticket the De-
mocrats could assemble, he would have a good shot at
gaining the top spot in November. He has some of the
bona-fides already, he just has to get the rest together.
The conservative media voices who have been
giving John McCain hell in recent months might think
about backing off, too. I have noticed that Rush Lim-
baugh seems to be doing just that. As for Ann Coulter;
well, if I keep pointing out her short sightedness as a
spokesperson for the conservative viewpoint, she might
not like me anymore, but I am dedicated enough to take
that chance.

ANOTHER ATTEMPTED TA
HOME INVASION: A


JUST A COUPLE OF
THOUGHTS

First, for Sheriff Hatcher to follow the movements of
these teenage thugs roaming the streets and arrest
any who break the law for any reason. Forego if we
must the drug busts until these thugs are under con-
trol.

Then for those citizens who may be hesitant to use
deadly force against them, remind them through the
media that ever since Florida Statue 776 was passed-
Justifiable use of force-- One no longer has to retreat
when faced by these thugs.

While in no way do I suggest that anyone take it
upon themselves to go looking for these trouble mak-
ers, it should be public knowledge that law-abiding
citizens are fed up.

"We cannot blame the kids. It is our responsibility as
a society to nurture and protect hem until they are
old enough to take responsibility for their own ac-
tions" writes Columnist David Ryman

Sorry, these aren't kids, these are thugs bent upon
terrorizing the law abiding citizens and should be
treated accordingly. How about finding the parents
and holding them responsible?

YOU


On behalf my friends at Nancy's Ceramics and my-
self, I would like to thank Pam Swanson for her un-
ending efforts to establish a much needed Humane So-
ciety here in Dixie County.

Rain or shine, cold or hot, Saturdays from 12:30 'till
4:00 P.M. she and her volunteers are beside the Citgo
gas station with dogs she has rescued.

The animals are in her care at hei home until they
can be placed in a permanent home. She seems tire-
less when it comes to helping the animals. As a com-
munity we need to help her when we can. Under-
stand, it is difficult and expensive to keep going on
the small amount of donations she receives.

Please remember, when you pass the Citgo on Satur-
day afternoon, stop in and see the wonderful, well
mannered dogs she has. Remember that every dollar
donated goes back to help in a variety of ways for the
animals.

We need a facility It's getting difficult to maintain
and house so many stray animals. It breaks her heart
to turn away dogs or cats, but understand th1eres only
so much room.

ST. JOHNS COUNTY DOCTOR GETS
PRISON FOR HYDROCODONE
TRAFFICKING
A St. Johns County doctor received a 10-year prison
sentence today after pleading guilty to drug-related
charges, Attorney General Bill McCollum today an-
nounced. Lawrence M. Friedes admitted he played an
active role in a drug trafficking operation that distrib-
uted illegally prescribed hydrocodone. Friedes pleaded
guilty to two counts of trafficking hydrocodone and
one count of writing a prescription for monetary bene-
fit. He was prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office
of Statewide Prosecution.
Friedes, 48, was arrested in February 2007 after selling
more than 1,000 hydrocodone pills to an undercover po-
lice operative at two separate times, once in January
2007 and another in February 2007. Co-defendant
William Normoyle sold more than 35,000 hydrocodone
pills, worth more than $175,000 street value, to the same
operative over a six-month period. Investigators with
the Drug Enforcement Administration conducted the
investigation and identified Friedes and Normoyle as
the two sources of the illegal prescriptions. Friedes
was working as a freelance doctor at the time of his ar-
rest.
Today's sentence was handed down by St. Augustine
Circuit Court Judge Wendy Berger. In addition to his
prison sentence, Friedes must also serve 10 years pro-
bation. Normoyle has not yet set a trial date.

which increases the potential of an attack," says Steve
Jones, executive vice president and COO of Universal
Protection Serrice, a provider of safety programs and
electronic security solutions.
Although facility layout plays an important role in re-
ducing the violent incidents that can occur, drivers can
safeguard themselves by adhering to some basic safety
recommendations that can help mitigate some of the
risks associated with entering and leaving a parking
facility

FLORIDA ARBOR DAY
CELEBRATION AT
OLD TOWN ELEMENTARY
SCHOOL


Arbor Day is a celebration of the planting of trees.
The first Arbor Day celebration took place April 10,
1872, in Nebraska. In the years following, other states
celebrate Arbor Day at different times of the year to
coincide with their tree-planting seasons.

In 1970, Richard Nixon proclaimed the last Friday in
April to be National Arbor Day. In Florida, Arbor Day
is the third Friday in January It provides an opportu-
nity for people to inspect trees, observe the benefits of
trees and of course, plant trees.

This year, the Old Town Elementary School celebrated
Arbor Day on January 17, 2008. Mrs. Rains' fifth grade
class joined the Dixie Soil and Water Conservation Dis-
trict and the Florida Division of Forestry and planted a
tree with classmates and teachers. One Laural Oak
tree was planted on campus. The students dug the
hole, prepared the sapling, planted the tree and
mulched around it. They learned the correct way to
plant trees and were quizzed on their tree knowledge.

The students used this opportunity to replace a tree
that was lost.

On hand to assist and monitor planting were Darlene.
Smith and John Stubblefield of Dixie Soil & Water Con-
servation District, Sara Creel and Tyler Futch from the
Florida Division of Forestry.

Teachers were given goody bags of assorted informa-
tion for the students and a tree in a container to take
home. Students were encouraged to plant them at home
and monitor their trees'-progress.

The event was sponsored by businesses across Dixie
County. All of the planted trees were donated by
Allen's Nursery, Mulch by Wal-mart, seedlings by the
Florida Division of Forestry Andrews Nursery. We
thank all who participated to make this event a suc-
cess. Thank you to the Principal and Teachers for al-
lowing the DSWCD & DOF to celebrate Arbor Day with
them.

FORMER PRISON
SECRETARY SLAMS
PRISON SYSTEM ON CNN


Although he stated that
most prison employees
are honest, hard-working
people, James McDo-
nough claims that the
Florida prison system
was run like the mafia.
McDonough took over the
job two years ago, facing
crime scene tape blocking
off his office on his first
day at work, "Thatwas
an indication we had a
problem in the depart-
nient," he stated to CNN
on Thursday

His laundry list of cor-
ruption included top
prison officials getting
kickbacks, guards selling
steroids, taxpayer funds
being used to pay for al-
cohol and women, and
guards who punished oth-
er guards who threatened
to blow the whistle. Mc-
Donough stated that
"They seemed to be drunk
half the time and had or-
gies the other half, when
they weren't taking mon-
ey and beating each other
up." "Essentially what
you had was a psychopath
in charge of the depart-
ment," he said of James
Crosby, the former Secre-
tary, who is currently in-
carcerated in Federal
prison.

Tina Hayes, who has
worked in the system for
almost three decades, cit-
ed the system's obsession
with inter-departmental
softball, saying that em-
ployees who didn't play
ball were "isolated" and
"pushed aside."

McDonough made refer-
ence to a state-funded,
waterfront "party house"
where orgies and drunk-
en bashes carried on into
the night. One female
guard claimed to have
been raped at the house.

McDonough is leaving his
post after two years be-
cause he feels like he's
succeeded in cleaning up
the system. According to
Hayes, "People can speak
out now without being
afraid to say what they
need to say"

ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL,
REFORM


Dixie County high school is transforming from the in-
side out! In its second year as a NEFEC Bubble School,
teacher and student performance is on the rise. The
district, principal and teachers leaders have ap-
proached reforming instructional practices with enthu-
siasm. This year, teachers are volunteering to model
lessons in faculty meetings. The focus for
ninth and tenth grade teachers has revolved around
meeting collaboratively to plan and review student per-
formance and they are learning from one another in
regular structured meetings where best practices are.
highlighted and improved upon. Principal, Buddy
Schofield is in classrooms on a daily basis and is an ac-
tive participant in professional development
and planning for professional development, data re-
views and is excited to share with visitors the changes
that are occurring on campus.

When walking through classrooms you immediately
notice high percentages of teachers circulating and en-
gaged in active explicit teaching. Student work is dis-
played prominently in most rooms and classrooms
have been rearranged to facilitate student discussion
and group activities. You'll notice that bell ringers, es-
sential questions and the use of FRI strategies are ex-
pectations that Dixie teachers take seriously. Don't be
surprised to see district administrator Garry Durham
on the sidewalk calling students.out for dat4 chats.
He's made a commitment to meet with most 9th and
10th grade students to review their current data and to
help them gain a better understanding of what goals
they should be striving for on this year's test. Using
their new progress monitoring software, Kaplan, has
made collecting and reviewing data with students and
teachers a much easier job.

Their new school motto says it all..."We will neither
make nor accept any excuses for our students not be-
-ing successful". Keep up the good work
Dixie High!

SWRMD DELAYS VOTE ON
MAGNOLIA BAY
Owner tries to pull application after denial emminent

The Suwannee River Water Management District de-
layed a vote that was scheduled for Tuesday on what
might be the most hated development proposal ever on
the Nature Coast. The owner requested that his ap-
plication be pulled after staff made it clear that denial
was recommended. The Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs will not legally approve the permit
based on objections in that department, due to the de-
struction of wildlife habitat involved if the 40 acres is
allowed to be developed. The owner wants to build a
golf course, 624 condo units a 874 room hotel and 20,000
square feet of retail space in the relatively quiet Dekle
Beach community.

The project has been opposed by virtually everyone ex-
cept the owner and real estate brokers who hope to
profit from the deal. Locals, environmentalists, fisher-
men, snowbirds, the EPA, and the Army Corps of Engi-
neers have been fighting
the project since day one.
According to the EPA, the
development threatens an
"aquatic resource of na
,. ;.-- -" tional importance."

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS

Springhouse quilters have started the year off with a
big group of beginning quilters. There are 15 begin-
ners in the day time class and 10 in the night classes.
Diane Schweder is the Beginner Coordinator and is
working very hard to secure knowledgeable teachers
for each class. Each class has different teachers. This
allows new members to pick up ideas and suggestions
from experienced quilters that will help them in their
piece work. The first piecing class taught the quilters
the use of a rotary cutter and the'need for one-quarter
inch seams. Quilters can be compared to carpenters
with all of the perfect measuring and cutting that is re-
quired. The classes will last for approximately 8 to 10
weeks.

Springhouse Quilters, along with several other organi-
zations, will be participating with the Suwannee Val-
ley Quilt Shoppe in an Antique and Vintage Quilt Fes-
tival on National Quilt Day, March 15. This event will

LOCAL BROKERS RETREAT

The Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy Board of Realtors 2008 Presi-
dent, Owen Baynard arranged a "Realtor Retreat" on
Saturday 2/8 at the old KOA campground on the his-
toric Suwannee River in Old Town. This retreat was to
focus on the certain
board issues and as M;:-
a team to create a vi-
sion that we share
for our growing area
as well as a mission
or road map to how
we will achieve this
vision. It was an ab-
solutely beautiful
day

All Realtors were
asked to come join in
and if you didn't
make it you missed out!! Breakfast and lunch was pro-
vided and wonderful opportunity to get to know you're
fellow Realtors. We were provided with phenomenal
information. Owen was very enthusiastic and inspira-
tional. We broke off into teams and achieved our goals
for the day in record time and had lots of fun doing it!
Everyone that participated felt we accomplished
GREAT things and we are all looking forward to work-
ing together to build our board and our community in-
volvement/awareness and so much more for 2008.

I encourage ALL Realtors to get involved and share
your own unique gifts and talents with your Board and
your community this year. A great big THANK YOU to
all of the Realtors that participated on Saturday and es-
pecially to Owen and his crew for planning, setting up ,
cooking, and clearing everything out. I look forward to
the next retreat!! Don't forget to join us the fourth
Tuesday of each month at the DGL Board office in
Chiefland for our monthly general membership meet-
ings at 6:30.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS' NEWS
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, February 7th at
the Levy County Quilt Museum. Kim Hart is our new
member and she is really getting into quilting.. She has
put together a top using Tshirt emblems and has made
a very interesting quilt. Quilting is going well on the
other quilts that the quilters are working on.
Nick Turner and six boys were out Tuesday arid what a
great day we had! People may wonder why we have so
much to do but it takes a lot of help to keep our Muse-
um looking good. They keep the yard mowed in sum-
mer, they clean weeds out of flower beds, they plant for
our gardens, they wash rugs, mop floors, sweep the out-
side, crack and shell pecans, cut cabbage for kraut, peel
cucumbers for pickles, hang pictures, wash windows,
and so much more. We could not keep the museum as
it is without htese boys coming out and working. Some
come who don't know how to do much, but when they
go back, they can say they have learned something use-
ful. Thanks Lancaster!
Tuesday we go to the fair and we look forward to a
great day. If you have made reservations and find you
can't go, please call before Monday 493-2801, we have
people waiting to go. Lunch was a table full of good
food, chicken and noodles, rutabegas, fried apples,
peas, stew, corn, shepard's pie, lots of salads and the
dessert table was overflowing. 20 people were present.

ENERGY CONTRACT
Local paper mills could benefit
TALLAHASSEE Florida's Public Service Commis-
sion (PSC) today approved a contract between Progress
Energy Florida (Progress) and BG&E Florida (BG&E)
for the purchase of firm capacity and energy.
The new renewable energy facility will produce elec-
tricity using waste wood products such as yard trim-
mings, and tree bark and wood knots from paper mills,
as fuel. The plant is expected to avoid the need to burn'
nearly five.million tons of coal over the 20-year life of
the contract. BG&E will install and operate the electric
generating plant in north Florida.
BG&E will sell 75 megawatts of capacity and energy:
from the facility to Progress for a term beginning June
1, 2011, through May 31, 2031. The facility is expected tq
generate enough electricity to power approximately
46,000 homes.
"This renewable energy project helps create a di-
verse, efficient, and affordable energy supply, which is
vital for Florida's economy and quality of life," said
PSC Chairman Matthew M. Carter II. "Promoting the
growth of renewable energy will create greater energy
and economic security for Florida."
The PSC is committed to making sure that Florida's
consumers receive their electric, natural gas, tele-
phone, water, and wastewater services in a safe, afford-
able, and reliable manner. The PSC exercises regulato-
ry authority over utilities in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive market oversight; and
monitors safety, reliability, and service.

IT'S A BOY!
JACKSONVILLE ZOO AND GARDENS
ANNOUNCES GIRAFFE BIRTH

February 8, 2008 -
Jacksonville, FL -
Jacksonville Zoo .-
and Gardens is
proud to announce 1
the birth of a
healthy male gi-
raffe. The calf was
born on January
26, 2008 at 9:29 p.m.
to Zawadi. The calf
first stood 36 min- ,
utes after birth and
first nursed at 1 i t
hour and 54 min-
utes after birth. He
is 5'7" and 142 i .
pounds, and after a
neonatal exam by
Zoo staff, appears
to be very healthy.
The mother is also doing very well and has demonstrat-
ed excellent maternal skills, including licking the calf
to clean and stimulate it immediately following the
birth. This is Zawadi and Duke, the father's, third off-
spring. The calf, whose name will be determined at the
Zoo's premier annual fundraiser, ExZOOberation, will
be on exhibit this weekend.

The gestation period for a giraffe is about fifteen
months. In the wild, calves spend much of their first
week lying down and hiding, while the mother remains
alert and prepared to defend her calf against predators
such as lions and hyenas. At birth, calves are approxi-
mately six-feet tall and weigh between 104 and 155 lbs.
Giraffes are the tallest animals and can reach up to
eighteen feet in height and 1,200-4,000 lbs. in weight.
Giraffes have been part of the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens collection since 1957.

For over 90 years, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens
has been dedicated to inspiring the discovery and ap-
preciation of wildlife through innovative experience in
a caring environment. Starting in 1914 with an animal
collection that consisted of one red deer fawn, the Jack-
sonville Zoo and Gardens has grown to house more
than 1,500 rare and exotic animals and over 1,000
unique plant species. The Jacksonville Zoo is a non-
profit organization and is an accredited member of the
Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). It is open
year-round, seven days a week, 9 a.m. 5 p.m. and is lo-
cated on Jacksonville's north side at 370 Zoo Parkway,
one-half mile east from 1-95. For more information on
the Zoo, log on to

sonvillezoo.org.


DIXIE COUNTY HEALTH
DEPARTMENT OFFERS
PUBLIC HEALTH ADVICE


(Cross City, Florida)-The Dixie County Health De-
partment and the Florida Department of Health
(DOH) offer advice to citizens who may be impacted
by wildfire smoke.

Smoke is a respiratory irritant, and can cause
scratchy throat, irritated eyes and nose and can
worsen conditions
such as asthma and ', -i .
other chronic respira- ...
tory or lung condi-
tions.

How to Protect Your ,.
Family from the
Health EffeCts of .
Smoke:

Pay attention to local -"
air quality reports and
stay alert to any news
coverage or health
warnings related to
smoke.

Use common sense. If it is smoky outside avoid pro-
longed outdoor activities. It is especially important
to limit time spent outdoors.

Stay indoors and run your air conditioners, if you
have one. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the fil-
ter clean to. prevent bringing additional smoke in-
side. For best results run the air conditioner with re-
circulated air.

NOTE: If you do not have an air conditioner, staying
inside with the windows closed may be dangerous in
extremely hot weather. In these cases, seek alterna-
tive shelter.

Help keep' the particles levels inside lower. When
smoke levels are high, try to avoid using anything
that burns such as wood fireplaces, gas logs, gas
stoves even candles! Don't vacuum. That stirs up
particles already inside your home. And don't smoke
tobacco.

Follow your doctor's advice about taking your medi-
cines and following your asthma management plan if
you have asthma or other lung disease. Call your doc-
tor if your symptoms worsen.

For additional information contact the Dixie County
Health Department at
352-498-1360.
