DIXIE COUNTY
TODDLER FALLS OUT
OF WINDOW IN OHIO
Charges against mom &
boyfriend pending
According to a story by
Kathie Dickerson in the
Coshocton Tribune, Sarah
Davidson, age 2, fell out of
a second floor window
into the snow, suffering
only minor injuries.
Her mother, Elizabeth
Davidson and boyfriend
Jason Grubbs, are facing
possible neglect charges.
Ms. Davidson claims that
the children told her that
her three year old son
(who, according to com-
ments on the site, may be
autistic,) pushed the little
girl out of the window,
Florida has maintained ju-
risdiction over the chil-
dren because of a prior
court case. The mother is
concerned that the chil-
dren will be transported to
Florida Foster care, where
it will be impossible for
her to maintain contact
with them. Davidson left
Dixie to flee an abusive re-
lationship with a previous
boyfriend in November.

GIANT SALAMANDER


FOUND IN DIXIE


While Jonathan Thomas was helping his father clear
debris from their rock pit, he found a Greater Siren
Salamander in the dried mud.
"I had a hard time holding him steady for the picture."
Said Jonathan, "He was really slimy, but very cool
looking. He had a tail like an eel and by his head he
had little arms with toes."


The family's rock pit has been without water for sever-
al years now, the entire family was amazed to discover
the salamander alive in the dried-up mud.
Mrs. Thomas identified the creature as a Greater
Siren Salamander using the internet. This salamander
measures 16 1/4" long.


GROUNDWATER LEVELS EXTREMELY LOW;


CONSERVATION URGED


S LIVE OAK, FL, February 11, 2008 -
Groundwater levels remained extremely
low throughout most of the Suwannee
River Water Management District (Dis-
trict) in January, with 5 monitoring wells
dipping to historic lows and 45 wells ex-
periencine new record lows for the


C month.
. The District issued 17 emergency con-
struction permits for dry wells in Janu-
Cd ary, and a total of 174 since April.
_.. The drop in groundwater levels is due
S primarily to a long-term rainfall deficit,
District officials say In January the Dis-
3 trict received, on average, 3.66 inches of
rainfall, with Levy and Madison counties
receiving over 4 inches and isolated areas
receiving more than 7 inches. However,
the rainfall deficit for the past 24 months
is 28.31 inches, and the National Weather
S Service Climate Prediction Center pre-
dicts that below-normal rainfall through
May will prolong and worsen the
-ater. ti drought.


Although river levels in January in-
creased at all monitored sites, record
monthly lows were observed at the

them around the intersection of 353 and 351 in Dixie County that un-
fortunately included the editor's well.

Santa Fe River near Fort White and the Econfina River
near Perry.
In response to the lengthy drought, the District govern-
ing board in January issued
the agency's first-ever
Phase II Water Shortage Or-
der that includes mandato-
ry water-use restrictions
which will take effect on
April 7. 2008.
The order includes restric-


tions, and some exemptions, for all water-use cate-
gories including residential, commercial, industrial
and agricultural. Meanwhile, District officials urge
voluntary conservation; noting that it should be an on-
going practice for all water users.

Most agricultural operations throughout the District
have implemented or plan to implement measures to
conserve water by increasing the efficiency of their ir-
rigation systems. Farmers continue to work with the
District, the Suwannee River Partnership, the Suwan-
nee River Resource Conservation & Development
Council's mobile irrigation lab, and other partners to
develop water conservation strategies.

The District also is working with cities and counties,
as well as commercial and industrial interests, to solic-
it input and to coordinate implementation and enforce-
ment guidelines for the restrictions.

Here are some ways citizens can practice water conser-
vation year-round:
Outdoors:
Water lawns and landscapes no more than two days a
week, before 10'a.m. or after 4 p.m.
If you must wash your vehicle or bathe your pet, use
an automatic shutoff nozzle on the hose.
Use a broom, not a hose, to clean debris from side-
walks and driveways.
Landscape with drought-tolerant plants.

Indoors:
Fix leaks and/or install water-saving devices on toilets,
faucets and showerheads.
Wash only full loads of clothes and dishes; select the
minimum water-volume setting needed per load.
Don't leave the faucet running while brushing teeth,
shaving, or washing dishes.

fall data, and river, lake and groundwater levels within

Evolution mandate
controversy continues
As it becomes more and more apparent
that the state of Florida will require evolution
to be taught as scientific fact in public
schools, the grass roots opposition to this leg-
islative arrogance continues.
Gilchrist is only one of several Florida
counties whose school boards have taken the,
position that they don't want Charles Dar-
win's disputed theory crammed down the.'
throats of impression-able young students as
though it were established, indisputable fact.
In 1925, John Scopes, a high school
teacher in Dayton, Tennessee, put his little
town on the map by violating a state law
which forbade the teaching of evolution or
anything else that was in conflict with the
Biblical account of Creation. The resulting
trial resulted in Scopes being convicted,
though his fines and court expenses were
borne by supporters. He was finally vindicat-
ed in 1968 when the Supreme Court ruled that
the Tennessee law was unconstitutional be-
cause it violated the establishment of religion
clause of the First Amendment.
The closest we've come to duplicating
the Tennessee law under which Scopes was
convicted has not involved the establishment
of religion, however it has stood the very con-
cept on its head by forbidding the presenta-
tion of any viewpoint that comes closer to
agreeing with the Bible than with Darwin's
Origin of Species.
Incidentally, I was not raised in an envi-
ronment that considered Darwin to be a
heretic. Evolution was presented in science
classrooms when I was in high school (quite
awhile back but I was not one of John
Scopes' students). However, it was not dwelt
upon at great length, or presented as a scien-
tific fact which supposedly disproved the book
of Genesis.
What the current legislation proposes
to do is exclude a concept of origins that sci-
entists term "intelligent design. Those who
are totally sold out to the evolutionary hy-
pothesis dispute intelligent design for no rea-
son other than it does not actually contradict
the Biblical account of creation. Intelligent
design is essentially a religiously-neutral con-
cept arrived at by scientists who found Dar-
win's "survival of the fittest" concept insuffi-
cient to explain the complexity of fairly re-
cent discoveries such as the intricacy of DNA
structure.
Consider, if you will, that Darwin pub-
lished Origin of Species in 1859, at which time
the atom was thought to be the smallest unit
of matter and Louis Pasteur was considered
weird for contending that disease could be
caused by micro-organisms too small to be
seen by the human eye. Furthermore, the ori-
gin of Darwin's theory is actually ancient,
having been advanced by a scholar named Lu-
cretius who lived in ancient Rome some 2,000
years ago, and perhaps by Alley Oop a few
millennia before that.
The problem is that, in 1925, Tennessee
law prohibited the teaching of any theory of
origms that contradicted the Bible, and now
the Florida Legislature wants us to accept a
law that prohibits the teaching of any theory
of origins that agrees with the Bible.
My question is, haven't the people we
send to Tallahassee anything better to do than
re-create an educational problem that evolved
from the primordial ooze of politics as it im-
pacts academia some 83 years ago?

WHY?



We would like your help. You see the day after Valen-
tines Day someone came into our yard and shot our 10
year old AKC Cocker Spaniel.
We have lived here for 2 % years with no problems,
we don't even know our neighbors. This was not just a
dog he was our best friend. He was the sweetest, kind-
est little fellow that you would ever meet.
The morning this happened our daughter was in Lake
City with her family and she rushed here to say good-
bye to her 10th Birthday present and best friend. Toby
held on long enough for her to get here, and we as a
family took him to the local vet here in town where
they then let us say our final goodbyes and then he
went to sleep, never again to brigten our days with
love and laughter. ,

Letter to The


Editor:
This latest college campus shooting, the one up in Illi-
nois at N.I.U. on Thanksgiving Day, was, like all of the
others, not only tragic but absolutely preventable. Let's
all turn off our emotions for a minute and use our
common sense.
How long are we, the citizens of these United States
of America, going to continue tolerating the atrocious
fact that probably all of the Presidents of the various
institutions of higher learning in the land are denying
their staff and adult students their constitutional right
to keep and bear arms?
This has got to change, and I mean right now! These
schools, to be sure, should certainly prohibit certain
types of weapons as are inappropriate for defensive use
on campus, by simply saying that the only firearms
that may be possessed on school property are concealed
revolvers and/or semi- automatic pistols.
When I was a young man, half a century ago. I was
told by an Texan.that at the University of Texas it was
not only allowable for adult students to keep and bear
arms, but a common practice for both male and female
students of age to do so.
/
Hold the President of any school where students are
denied their,rights, and a shooting of innocents occus,,
responsible in both the civil and criminal courts in the
nation. A few years in a state or Federal penitentiary
would do these despicable individuals a world of good,
and so would the law suits.

And one further point -as a further deterrent, while
they certainly shouldn't be encouraged to do so, Fist 1
Fights of the traditional, clean variety should not be
considered as very serious violations. Additional stu-
dents should not join in, no more than just the two
original participants, but a good fight can defuse an
ugly situation. Perhaps a one week suspension from
classes for whoever caused the fight would be appropri-
ate along with a'ho-hum, so what attitude from the po-
lice would be the last approach.
There you have it. Lets do it. The President of N.I.U.
although probably a nice, decent man in many respects
is someone responsible for those shooting victims. He
belongs in prison, sad as that may be.

Continued from front page...white male who entered
the home, ordered the sister to lie on the floor then
forcibly removed Judith Osteen from the home. Osteen
has not been seen since.
Judith Osteen is described as a 60-year-old white fe-
male, 5'2", 120 pounds. No clothing description is avail-
able.
Investigators with the Dixie County Sheriff's Office
and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement trav-
eled last week to interview the sister in hopes of gain-
ing more information. At the conclusion of the inter-
view, investigators were able to obtain a sketch render-
ing a possible suspect. Sheriff Hatcher stated, "It is
our hopes that someone with information will come
forward to help us solve this case, that is why we have
increased the reward and released the sketch of a pos-
sible suspect."

asked to call the Dixie County Sheriff's Office at 352-498-1231.
BRONSON WARNS
CONSUMERS TO AVOID
TAX REBATE SCAM
TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is warning
consumers about scan artists who are seeking person-
al information and in some instances money while
claiming to help consumers in obtaining a tax rebate.
from the federal government.
"If you receive a phone call or e-mail with a promise of
assistance in getting a check, hang up on the caller or
delete the e-mail," Bronson said. "Congress hasn't even
approved a tax rebate plan yet."
The scam began sweeping the country in recent days,
and some Florida residents have acknowledged in
phone calls to the department's Consumer Services Di-
vision this week that they have been contacted by the
sc&aif artfisfs.
In one variation of the rij-of'f, a company calling itself
the Federal Commission Refund Department is promis-
ing consumers help in obtaining a tax rebate check for
a $29 fee that it offers to withdraw from the consumer's
bank account. In a second variation, scammers por-
traying themselves as IRS agents are calling and ask-
ing for Social Security numbers and other personal in-
formation to verify the person's eligibility for a refund.
That information can make consumers extremely vul-
nerable to identity theft.
"What these scam artists are trying to do is to obtain
personal information, including bank account and So-
cial Security numbers, so they can clean out yoiir
checking or savings account and open a line of credit
in your name," Bronson said. "Don't fall for it."
Congress is considering a tax rebate plan in an effort to
stimulate the economy The IRS, which is the agency
that would issue checks if legislation is passed for ap-
proving a rebate, does not ask for personal information
on the phone or in an e-mail.


COLLISION UN 349


On Monday, February 18, 2008 at approximately 1:30

tions ahead and was rear-ended when the vehicle be-
hind it failed to stop in a timely manner.
There were no injuries.
HUSBAND AND WIFE
METH LAB BUSTED
Continued from front page...Sheriff Hatcher stated,
"This lab makes the twentieth lab that has been taken
down by the Dixie County Sheriff's Office in the last
three years". The Dixie County Sheriff's Office will
continue to pursue those that manufacture, deliver or
.possess illegal narcotics.
Deputies arrested Kenneth Richard Hayes age 48 and
Rose Carey Hayes age 41. They were given first appear-

formerly from the St. Augustine area for Manufactur-
ing in Methamphetamines and Possession of a Listed

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTER'S NEWS


Springhouse Quilters had a very full house on Febru-
ary 12, the second monthly meeting of the new year, as
54 ladies met at the Springhouse Quilt Building west of
Trenton. The program for the meeting was provided by
Cindy Ayers, one of the Night Owl members. She gave
some very interesting tips on how to make the perfect
mitered corner, plus shared information from her visit
to a quilt show in Sisters, Oregon. Cindy Ayers, along
with her friend Beth Davis, attended the Oregon show 2
years ago and came back to Trenton all excited hoping
that one day Trenton might try a quilt show similar to
the Oregon Show.

With help from the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop, the
City of Trenton, the Gilchrist Chamber of Commerce,
Pure Water Wilderness, Springhouse Quilters and oth-
ers, Trenton will be hosting an Antique and Vintage
Quilt Festival on National Quilt Day March 15, from
9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. This will be a one day free event,
open to all visitors. It is hoped that the visitors coming
to Trenton to view the quilts will appreciate what Tren-
ton and Gilchrist County has to offer along with the
quilts that will be on display.

During the meeting last Tuesday, Beverly Shobe provid-
ed the information for members to participate in the
annual community service projects The required pro-
ject for this year will be lap robes for the abused thru
Another Way. Springhouse will also be providing some
receiving blankets for needy babies and pillow cases for
children with cancer. Several members have made al-.
ready made several pillow cases which will be deliy-
ered to A-1 Sewing in Gainesville for the young cancer
patients.
On February 26 a workshop will be conducted by Gail
Bice a very talented quilter from Levy County To date,
19 ladies have signed up for the workshop. The project
for the workshop will be a Garden Lattice Quilt.

FAITH BAPTIST
VALENTINE BANQUET


What a gorgeous day God blessed us with Sunday. The
special music in the morning service was done by
Heather, singing "Thank God for My Christian Home".
It blessed our hearts. In the evening service, Heather
sang with her grandparents, the Crenshaws, and they
did "Look What I'm Trading for A Mansion", then the
Crenshaws sang "I'm No Longer An Orphan". We had a
wonderful day in the Lord.

Last Thursday night the Seniors Group had their
Valentine Banquet and had a wonderful time. There
were 22 in attendance. What a blessing to be able to fel-
lowship with Christian brothers and sisters. A good
time was had by all.

Then on Saturday night, the Adults had their Valen-
tine Banquet and also had 22 in attendance. They had
a great time as well.

God has blessed us lately with lots of visitors. We
want them to know how special they are and what a
blessing they are to us. We'd also like to let them know
that if they don't have a church home, we invite them
to share ours.

Remember this week to pray for the sick, the ones
who have lost loved ones and especially the lost. Invite
someone to Sunday School and Church with you. God
will bless you for it.

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF

On Tues. February 12th, we had our annual Adult
Valentines Banquet. This is the fifth year, with approxi-
mately 55 attending. We were seated and warmly
served by our youth. They also took care of our pre-
cious little ones. Thank you young people for being
soooo special. The church voted by secret ballot for the
Valentine King and Queen. They chose Lawrence and
Sandy Coleman. They were crowned by the 2007 King
and Queen, Fred and Mary Kate Mitchell. Lawrence
and Sandy were recognized with two Valentine baskets,
filled with Hershey candies, teddy bear, goodies and
balloons. They were also presented with a gift certify To
finish off the evening we enjoyed an "Oldie Goldie"
Newly Wed game. Our three couples were Dixie and
Brenda Southerland, Mitch and Carolyn Mitchell and
Stephen and Ami Reed. Wow, a hilarious time was
shared by all! Thank you to Marcia Bratcher. Sarah
Holden, Edwina Wood and others for all the love, time,
planning, buying, decorating, preparing all that
scrumptious food, cleaning up and instructing our
youth for our 4th Adult Valentines fellowship! "Thank
you", to each of our ladies baking those de-o-li-ci-ous
cakes, pies and desserts! They were enjoyed by all!

Experts address the bare facts on


living with Florida's black bear


* Residents can help by keeping
yards free of animal attractants
By FWCSTAFF

SFlorida's black bear adapts quickly to
its changing environment, which may
be its greatest asset as well as its greatest
downfall.
Diminishing habitats in Florida have
led to more instances of black bears in
backyards, pools and garbage cans seek-
ing an easy source of food and water.
While seeing a bear for the first time cre-
ates an opportunity for the shutterbug, it
also causes concern for some people who
do not understand the behavior and hab-
its of the Florida black bear, Florida's larg-
est land mammal and a subspecies of the
American black bear.
Unfortunately, if a bear finds a source
of food that is easily accessible, such as
a garbage can or a dog's food dish left on
the back porch, the bear will keep coming
back, regardless of human activity in the
vicinity. Encouraging bears to associate
humans with food no matter how unin-
tentional may result in a death sentence
for the bear. When bears become accus-
tomed to this convenient way of finding
food, situations can occur where bears
may act in an aggressive way in their ef-
forts to secure food. Then wildlife.offi-
cials may have to intervene and euthanize
bears that have become too comfortable in
the presence of people. '
Stephanie Simek, Black Bear Manage-
ment Program coordinator with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC), advises that the responsibility
for keeping bears and people safe requires
an effort on the part of residents, as well as
government entities.
"If you are attracting opossums and rac-
coons into your yard, you can also attract
bears," Simek said. "Keeping garbage and
food away from all wild animals is every-
one's responsibility."
The Florida black bear exists in frag-
mented populations throughout the state.


However, with diminished habitat from
encroaching development and the human
population continually increasing in the
state, human-bear interactions are occur-
ring more frequently. The FWC recognizes
the importance of addressing the role of
people to ensure that encounters with bears
remain a positive experience.
Presently the FWC receives a multitude
of calls from residents regarding bears;
particularly in counties in the greater
Orlando area, around the Ocala National
Forest and in the Panhandle. Joy Hill, FWC
spokesperson for the Northeast Region,
says answering residents' calls requires a
balancing act.
"The black bear is a threatened species
in Florida," Hill said. "So we have to manage
these human-bear interactions while main-
taining a biologically and socially accept-
able bear population. The FWC continually
tries new ways to address these situations,
but the best way to help lessen negative en-
counters requires residents to take respon-
sibility for wildlife attractants that may be
in their own backyard."
The FWC's Web site provides download-
able instructions for building bear-resistant
trash container caddies and for installing
electric fences at MyFWC.com/bear.
In addition, some communities in Frank-
lin County in the Panhandle and Collier
County in Southwest Florida are taking
initiatives to put wildlife-resistant trash
containers in schools, public parks and resi-
dential communities. These efforts prevent
bears from making trash containers their
source for meals and cut down on the num-
ber of negative human-bear encounters.
To find out about wildlife-resistant trash
containers, visit FWC's Web site for links to
manufacturers and distributors. Anyone
who experiences bear problems should con-
tact the nearest FWC regional office. The
phone number can be found in the State
Government section of the phone book.
"Blackbears are not generally aggressive,
even when confronted by humans," Hill
said. "However, they are large and powerful
wild animals that need to be respected."


Florida bears are black with a brown
muzzle and may have a white chest
marking called a blaze. (FWC photo)

STATE BOARD VOTES YES
ON "THEORY OF"
EVOLUTION IN SCHOOLS

After heated citizen comment in a packed Capitol
Meeting Room over whether or not to include the word
"theory" in front of state-mandated teachings on evo-
lution, the State Board of Education voted yes to
adding "the scientific theory of" in front of evolution
on Tuesday The vote was four to three.

During the period of time allowed for citizen com-
ment, Patricia Weeks, who made a point of citing that
she had graduated from UF with honors, said evolu-
tion-only proponents often argue that those who dis-
agree with them are ignorant, or just don't understand
evolution. "I do understand their position, but I don't
agree with it," she said.

State Rep. Ed Homan, a Republican from Tampa, ar-
gued that he "failed to see the difference between cre-
ation and evolution...this is not a scientific theory this
is the way things happened. Evolution is the way our
Creator made this happen.

Board member Roberto Martinez was the loudest voice
against adding "the theory of," complaining that the
wording had not been put together by experts, as the
rest of the standards had. Although what sort of im-
pact the addition a panel of experts could have made to
the additional few words was not clarified. .

House minority leader Dan Gelber, a Democrat from
Miami Beach, also fought for the pro-evolution only
standards, and called the current standards "a joke"
that encouraged teachers to blend science and faith.

Board members Linda Taylor, T. Williard Fair, Phoebe
Raulerson and Kathleen Shanahan voted to approve the
change. Martinez, Akshay Desai and Donna Callaway
voted to teach evolution as fact.

The new "theory of evolution" wording joins other
wording already in the standards, such as "theory of
cells" and "theory of atoms," none of which received
any opposition from science "experts."

About Sunshine Week

In 2002, the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors
launched Sunshine Sunday in response to increased
public and legislative awareness. After Florida's tvail-
blazing actions to establish sunshine laws, many other
states have adopted Sunshine Sunday, which resulted
in the American Society of Newspaper Editors desig-
nating a Sunshine Week.
Governor Crist's dedication to the sunshine'laws is
clearly evident. In his inaugural address, Florida's 44th
Governor made open government a top priority. He
quoted President Abraham Lincoln, pledging under his
watch Florida government would be "of the people, by
the people and for the people." The next day in his first
Executive Order, Governor Crist established the Office
of Open Government and charged it with providing the
Governor's Office and all state agencies the tools neces-
sary to serve the people ofTlorida in a professional
and efficient manner.

A WALK IN THE GARDEN
Art Wyckoff


F -frost is still possible!
E -evaluate winter damage and loss in your garden
B be on the lookout for insect pests
R read about plants you would like to have
U understand what your plants like to eat
A always choose plants that arefor our zones 8-9
R remember to fertilize in late February or March
Y YOU should take time to enjoy your garden

This month I've decided to share some of the questions
people have asked me to address.
I hope that the following tidbits will turn your thumb
green with success.

Q. Are our severe frost days behind us?
A. History shows us we can still have a heavy frost
into the beginning of March. Be alert!

Q. Is this a good time to fertilize my plants?
A. In general, yes. You need to remember that if you
promote new growth too early and a frost hits, you
stand to lose all new buds, leaves and fruit.

Q. What kind of fertilizer is best for azaleas?
A. Use a frtertilizer such as 8-4-8 specifically designed
for azaleas, gardenias, camellias and blueberries.

Q. Can I still trim azaleas this month?
A. Only if you want to cut off this years buds and
flowers. Trim and shape azaleas in early summer to
encourage shrub fullness and blooms for next year.

Q. What is the best thing to use to protect citrus from
frost?
A. Start off by planting them here in Dixie County
with a southeast sun exposure. Then preferably near
some windprotection from nearby trees or hedges. Wa-
ter the tree freely just before the predicted freeze; a
well hydrated tree will withstand the frost longer. Plas-
tic coverings will do more harm than good. Bedsheets
and blankets will work but should not be left on for an
extended time, as the tree needs light and air move-
ment. The best outer protection is called a frost blan-
ket. This garden center product allows the tree to
breathe, lets in sunlight and allows water to
penetrate. Most frost blankets will change the tempera-
ture under the blanket by 8 to 10 degrees.

Q. Is this a good time to transplant trees and plant
new ones?
A. Excellent time, especially if we receive spring
showers. The temperature this time of year is great for
both you and the plants.

If you have any specific questions you would like an-
swered drop us a line at 'Walk in the Garden Q / A "
Box 2607
Cross City, 32628.
Remember; No matter how many hours you spend in
your garden always take time to enjoy the marvel of
God's creations.

ARE ALL METAL ROOFS
CREATED EQUAL?

The quality of metal and paint finishes can vary greatly between
manufacturers and product lines. The installation technique and
craftsmanship of the roofing contractor is just as important as
material choice. We use top quality materials, backed by up to a
40 year Manufacturer's Warranty. All substructure
(purlins) are attached to roof frame trusses with approved screws.
Some contractors install purlins with nail guns with little care to se-
cure to the truss. Knowledge and attention to flashing around all
roof penetrations is an absolute must for a leak-free job. Unfortu-
nately, most homeowners don't realize the high cost of poor
workmanship until it is too late! Metal roofing, when properly in
stalled provides added fire pro-
tection, cooler attics and homes
in summer and superior wind
resistance in severe weather
over asphalt shingles on site-
built and manufactured homes.
