MAN DISPLAYS CONFEDERATE FLAG IN HONOR

OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH


On Monday, February 25, 2008 Mr. Edg
Couthouse with his Confederate Flag.

ton was standing in front of the ulxie County


When asked exactly what he was doing he stated, "I am here in rememberance of the
people who looked something like myself, who fought under this flag."

'I am an American and I am southern, I am proud to be standing here with this flag."

Ar. Edgerton says he chose to do this now, in honor if Black History Month.


Suwannee Water Manage-
ment, "a taxing authority
with no elected officials is il-
legal as far as I am con-
cerned". The council took it
under advisement.
Water is already a dwindling
resource and with additional
calls on the aquafir, includ-
ing another bottling plant in
Gilchrist and a new water
plant in. Fanning Springs,
the. situation is unlikely to
get any better. Plans to divert
water from 3 Florida rivers
to supply the growing Orlan-
do and The Villages areas
are not going to help any ei-
ther. You can already "pay
more for a gallon of water
than for gas" injected council
president Hurst and desali-
nation plants are expensive
to build and operate.
Another issue that has arisen
over recent years is arsenic
.in the water table. The De-
partment of Environmental
Protection have already com-
mitted to funding supply of
city water to any affected res-
ident.
Approximately 3400 cattle-
dipping vats were construct-
ed throughout Florida from
1906 through 1962. These
vats were used to eradicate
ticks from cattle and other
live stock. The vats were
constructed of concrete and
were typically 30 feet long, 3
feet wide and 7 feet deep.
The vats were generally filled
with an Arsenic solution that
killed the ticks. It is now "
known that the solutions
used in these cattle-dipping
vats are harmful to humans
and areas with the vats may
have contaminated ground
water in their vicinity. Other
possible contaminants are
BHC, DT, DDE and
toxaphene.
There are 37 of these vats lo-
cated within Dixie and 29 in
Gilchrist counties currently
known to the Florida Depart-
ment of Health. There may
well be more.
Although there appears to be
no proof that the arsenic in
the water is a direct result of
the state mandated dipping
vats, Ockham's razor would
suggest otherwise. Wells are
usually 30' to 60' deep and the
aquafir is several hundred
feet down.
Clle. Gooding pointed out
that the city generates more
revenue from the water busi-
ness that it does from taxa-
tion. It is understood that
any resident requesting city
water must also agree to be
annexed into the city when
convenient.
Ordinance's 319 and 320 were
passed into the books. 319
covers the use of exhaust
brakes within city limits and
320 covers park hours. City
parks are to be open from
7:30am to 7pm in the Winter
and 7:30am to 9:30pm in the
Summer. The ordinance fur-
ther defined Winter as the pe-
riod between Oct 1st and the
end of April, Summer being
the remainder. Special event
can still be hosted in the
parks with permission from
City Hall.
Work crews from the Correc-
tional Institute have trimmed
the trees around the older
park enabling more effective
lighting of the area.
Representatives from the De-
partment of Corrections
Cross City Work Camp at-
tended the City Council meet-
ing on Monday to show their
support for the city The cur-
rent camp has a capacity of
285. Funding etc. for a new
camp is currently before the
powers in Tallahassee and
work on the site will hopeful-
ly commence at the end of
2008, with ground breaking
around Feb 2009. The 600 bed
facility, which is unusually
large, will provide an addi-
tional 150 local jobs approxi-
mately Work is already un-
derway with road improve-
ments to the area and the city
already has an 8" water
mains in that direction. Don't
you just love it when a plan
comes together?

No way to run a
banana republic
Last week, we got the news that Fidel Castro
was about to resign as Cuba's fearless leader.
That's right, resign!
What is the matter with these Cubans?
Where do they think they're living, the United
States? Banana republic leaders don't resign,
they're assassinated, or at least exiled to the
Spanish Rivera to live lavishly off the mil-
lions they embezzled before the bullet with
their name on it arrives.
Like his predecessor, Fulgencio Batista, Cas-
tro took over with a coup of sorts, but unlike
Batista, he seems to be figuring on staying
right there in Cuba until he finally takes the
big dirt nap. He's even appointed his brother
to replace him at the helm. According to the
way things are supposed to be done in a ba-
nana republic, if your brother takes over
from you, he kills you first.
Well, think about it. Batista eased out when
the revolution was about to happen back in
1959 after arranging safe passage to the Unit-
ed States for a few of his top lieutenants, then
headed to Spain with so much loot he almost
had to make two trips. There he resided in the
lap of luxury until his death from natural
causes in 1973. His lower-ranking subordi-
nates were left behind, where they were the
subjects of mass executions not unlike those
that took place in Russia, China and other
countries that underwent Communist revolu-
tions.
Yes, friends, Castro's revolution was a Com-
munist revolution, just like Lenin's and
Mao's. The Soviet Union supported Cuba and
used it as a missile base until the Soviet col-
lapse in 1989. There just ain't no way you can
whitewash that historical fact.
While he was president (or heading up the
government in some other official capacity),
Batista at least faked a couple of elections.
Castro started out saying he would hold elec-
tions, but never did. Shux, even Saddam Hus-
sein faked elections. (Got 100% of the popular
vote, too.)
Castro's revolution might not have succeeded
except for one monumental blunder of the
Kennedy administration. There was a US-
backed coup to oust Castro, but critical air
support was withheld. The Bay of Pigs inva-
sion failed and we got a half-century of com-
munism 90 miles south of Key West, and it
looks like we'll be getting a few more years of
it with Raul Castro at the helm. He's already
cozying up to Hugo Chavez, the top dog in
Venezuela.
Character-wise, Batista and Fidel weren't a
lot different, but at least Cuba prospered eco-
nomically under Batista. Castro, on the other
hand, destroyed the nation's economy. Just
one more reason why Batista never should
have let him out of jail.

Letter to the Editor:
As tough as times are today, generosity is sometimes the last thing you expect to see and
Thank you is not said enough. And both generosity and thank you can be life changing for someone. With that
being said, I would like to say Thank You to several deserving people who may not hear it as often as they should.
First, I would like to thank my husband and daughter who support and allow me to help with the fundraising for
the Dixie County Humane Society I would like to thank Mary at Mary's Country Deli in Old Town, for all her
support and generosity and for allowing us to have a yard sale on Sat. What a busy day! Thank You to all the
generous people who came out on Saturday to the yard sale for their donations and to those of you who offered
donations of items so we can have another sale to benefit the Dixie County Humane Society Thank You to Re-
becca and Dave Miller, Linda Navatto, and Kim Phillips who took the time to gather things for the sale and come
out. Rebecca and Dave Miller also deserve a huge Thank You for opening their home to take in animals, care and
feed them and dedicating their Saturdays to being at the adoptions and much more. Also Thank You to Linda,
Joe and Heaven Navatto for also fostering and opening their home to care for an animal. A special Thank You to
Greten Daughaday for all the merchandise she prepared and donated to sell at the yard sale for the Humane Soci-
ety Thank You to Tim Furnell and Linda Bartell for all the time they have devoted to the Dixie County Humane
Society They maintain the website, write the articles for the newspaper each week, take photographs, are there
on Saturday for the adoptions and do much more. And a very big and special Thank You to Pamela Swanson.
Without you these animals wouldn't stand a chance. Thank You for opening your heart and your home and for
being so dedicated to helping these innocent animals. Your commitment and compassion is just unbelievable.
Thank You on behalf of all the puppies, dogs, kittens, cats, and the other various animals that you have saved
and found homes for. I know you couldn't be with us on Saturday, but the generosity of the people was unbeliev-
able. It has been hard uphill battle for you with little or no support, but you are the voice for these animals and I
don't know how many other people would do what you are doing, opening your home, spending your own money,
taking the animals to the vet and much more, and be as dedicated as you are. And you do all of this without a fa-
cility or the many things that are needed to do it. And to say Thank You just doesn't seem like it is enough. And
Thank You to anyone that I may have forgotten, and to all of you who have opened your homes and adopted, to
those of you who gave donations of any kind, and the people who came out on Saturdays to spend time with ani-
mals or just brought them treats. And Thank You to the newspapers who print the articles each week. Despite
what some people may think or say all of those involved have the animal's best interest at heart, and unfortu-
nately that means you can't please everyone all the time. The animals can't speak for themselves, so someone
has to step up and do theright thing and that person is Pamela Swanson. So, even though I am just one person
saying a huge big Thank You. I hope all of you know that your time, dedication, support and compassion are
very much appreciated. I hope this Thank You will give you the strength to keep doing all that you do because
these animals desperately need you.
Thank You
Traci Glidden


Dear Editor:
It is distressing to read Mr. Prater's criticism of the
State of Florida for adopting science standards that
will require the teaching of evolution in our class-
irooms.
Although Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was -
published in the 1859 "Origin of Species", the theory
has withstood the test of time and continuous exami-
nation with newer technologies. The "theory" is now
affirmed by an overwhelming body of evidence and is
now accepted as scientific fact, not just theory
We should not handicap our young people by denying
the findings of paleontology (the fossil record), carbon
dating methods, and molecular biology.
SThe two stories of creation in Genesis are not support-
ed by facts. Those stories are held as a matter of faith.
Faith in a Creator is not diminished if the story of how
creation came about is not as described in Genesis.
The history of the thinking on origins and the idea of
evolution goes back to antiquity and has come down
from a long line of thinkers. That history is well told in
Ronald Clark's book, "The Survival of Charles Dar-
win". Darwin's place in that history is affirmed be-
cause he spent a lifetime in experimenting and obser-
vation, as well as voluminous writings to give weight to
his theory

STUMPING FOR WATER
Fanning Springs Officials Visit Lawmakers to Request
Water Funding




I- iN'l~'g MM


Mayor Cheryl Nekola and Betty Jordan, the city's
grant writer, went to Washington, DC on behalf of Fan-
ning Springs and the Florida's League of Cities on Feb.
11-14, 2008. it was a mission to present the city's waste
water treatment plant project for fanning springs, they
are in hopes of securing federal appropriation funding
along with state funded grants so that the city can have
it's own waste water treatment plant. they met with our
congressmen and/or their appropriation staff to ask
for their support.

Mayor Nekola also joined with representatives of the
league of cities and went to scheduled meetings to pre-
sent their concerns and positions on issues affecting
Florida cities.

Fanning Springs sits on the banks of the Suwannee
River and needs a waste water system. Until recently,
there did not seem to be much hope in the city being
able to afford the cost of a waste water system. Howev-
er, with the current planned growth, the city's critical
location, and community support, it may now possible
to move forward.

They met with Cliff Sterns, Bill Nelson, Mel Martinez,
Jenny Brown-Waite, and Allen Boyd. Because our gov-
ernor, Charles Crist, was also in Washington, she was
able to present the city's needs to him.

Mayor Nekola said our nation's capitol is a great place
to visit but she recommends not going in the winter-
time as it was cold and snowy She believes they ac-
complished their goals and is looking forward to meet-
ing our state representatives and senators in Tallahas-
see soon.

MOTHER AND BOYFRIEND
PLEAD NO CONTEST IN BABY
OUT THE WINDOW CASE

According to Kathie Dickerson at the Coshocton Tri-
bune, Elizabeth Davidson, formerly of Dixie County,
and her boyfriend, Jason Grubbs made a no-contest
plea in Coshocton Municipal Court on Thursday Her
two year old baby was found on the ground in the
snow outside of a two-story window last week. The
mother claimed that the baby's three year old sibling
had pushed her out the window, along with most of
the contents of the bedroom, while the mother slept
downstairs.

"I know I was wrong," said Elizabeth Davidson, 23, "I
fell back asleep in the morning and it was wrong. I
didn't mean to, but it was wrong."

Charged with child endangering, a first-degree misde-
meanor, the offense is subject to up to a $1,000 fine and
180 days in jail, Judge France said.


DEFENESTRATION: from the Latin de (from; out of) and fenestra (window or
opening), is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window. The term was
coined around the time of an incident in Prague Castle in the year of 1618. In 2004, Mer-
riam-Webster's dictionary users named defenestrationn" as one of Merriam-Webster's
Words of the Year. Historically, the word defenestration.was used to refer to an act of
political dissent. Notably, the Defenestrations of Prague in 1419 and 1618 helped to trig-
ger prolonged conflict within Bohemia and beyond. It is said that some Catholics ascribed
the survival'of those defenestrated at Prague Castle in 1618 to divine intervention, while

SUWANNEE EMS AWARENESS MONTH

In the February regular meeting of the Suwannee Riv-
er Chamber of Commerce, Ben West, Fire Chief of the
Suwannee Volunteer Fire Department, made a passion-
ate plea for the people of Suwannee, to complete the.
Personal Medical Information Form he designed, and
place it on their refrigerators, so Emergency Medical
Personnel responding to a call can have important, life
saving information should that person should they be
confused or unconscious on EMS arrival. This request
was made as a result of the fire department finding a
person dead at home with no idea who they were, or
how to contact relatives.

A resolution was passed that The Suwannee River
Chamber of Commerce would sponsor an annual
"Suwannee EMS Awareness Month" in July of each
year. During that month, an effort would be made to get
the Emergency EMS Personal Medical Information
Form completed by every Suwannee resident and regu-
lar visitor, and have them placed in a bright colored
sleeve, tube or holder on their refrigerator. Businesses
will be asked to sponsor the purchase of the Emer-
gency EMS Personal Medical Information Form hold-
ers. In addition, every home and business owner would
be reminded to inspect the address on their properties
to make sure it is clearly visible, marked properly with
the "new" 911 address, and clear of any vegetation
growth that may have sprung up. Remember, business-
es are to use 6" letters and residences should use 4" let-
ters! Plan now to participate in our July "Suwannee
EMS Awareness Month" by completing and posting
your Emergency EMS Personal Medical Information
Form, clearing and properly marking your property,
and volunteer to help the Chamber in July make the
"Suwannee EMS Awareness Month" a success!

NEW PROSPECT BAPTIST NEWS

On Sunday, our choir and musicians went all out in ex-
pressing their happiness at being in God's House once
again! We appreciate the willingness and enthusiasm
of Bro. Dale Riels in stepping in for Bro. Jody Mayo as
songleader...good job, Bro. Flash! With God's anointing,
Bro. Billy delivered God's messages from Genesis 3:9
and Psalms 86:6, morning and evening, respectively.
For two Sundays in a row now, we have been blessed
with baptismal services, including the addition of four
souls to God's Kingdom this past Sunday, for which we
praise His Holy Name!

The Lafayette Baptist Association is providing an East-
er meal, consisting of ham and all the trimmings, to
those in need. Donations of canned goods which you
would use to prepare an Easter meal will be much ap-
preciated. You may also donate cash for the hams, etc.,

collecting these items at the church until March

Once again, we were very pleased to have visitors Sun-
day. We invite you back, along with all others who
might favor us with your visits...all are welcome!
Please be in prayer for all the people on the church
prayer lists, those who have lost loved ones recently,
our military personnel, and our President and other
leaders. Have a good week, and may God bless and
keep you safe.


NO RED BELLY DAY THIS YEAR


The Dixie County Chamber of Commerce would like to
thank everyone who helps with Red Belly Day
However, we have decided to take a year off and not
hold Red Belly Day in 2008. This will give the chamber
the opportunity to restructure the event and try to in-
crease our pool of individuals who are willing to give
of their valuable time to help.

"This was a difficult decision, as we know many of our
local residences enjoy the annual event, and it is a
great opportunity to showcase our area" said Julie
Squires, Chamber President.


The Chamber will keep the event name and hope to
continue the event next year. We appreciate all the help
from other groups and we look forward to your partici-
pation in our other projects, such as "The Dixie County
ou are' Beauty Pageant", "Christmas in the Park", and a team
well sponsorship in "Relay for Life".

praise His Holy Name!

The Lafayette Baptist Association is providing an East-
er meal, consisting of ham and all the trimmings, to
those in need. Donations of canned goods which you
would use to prepare an Easteriheal will be much ap-
predated. You may also donate cash for the hams, etc.,
for this very worthwhile missionary work. We will be
collecting these items at the church until March
9th...we also invite volunteers to help in assembling
and delivering the baskets.

Once again, we were very pleased to have visitors Sun-
day. We invite you back, along with all others who
might favor us with your visits...all are welcome!
Please be in prayer for all the people on the church

keep you safe.

ONE JOB: TWO PAYCHECKS
YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
(OR NOT)

According to a story released by the AP, thousands of
state workers are receiving two checks; a retirement
check and a current paycheck, because of a loophole in
the law.

The St. Petersburg Times dug through the records and
found 211 elected officials in Florida who are taking ad-
vantage of the loophole, including legislators, judges,
sheriffs, school board members, etc. The retirement
bill allowing elected officials to double-dip from the
taxpayers' pockets was passed on the last night of the
legislative session in 2001. This bill allows elected offi-
cials to get retirement benefits as well as regular pay
while remaining in the same job.

The worst offender is Miami-Dade College President
Eduardo J. Padron: he collected $893,286 in a lump sum
benefit and then started receiving $14,631 a month in
retirement pay Then he returned to his job and still
collects his annual salary of $328,860.

Supreme Court Justice Harry Anstead collected
$426,852 in deferred compensation in 2004. He receives
a little under $8,000 a month in retirement, plus his
$161,083 salary 22 other currently sitting judges are
also taking advantage of the law. This loophole cost the
Florida taxpayers $300 million last year, according to
the Florida Retirement System.

Senator Mike Fasano, a Port Richey Republican, was in
charge of the retirement bill as a member of the house
at that "This is. absolutely not what the Legislature in-
tended," he told the St. Pete Times. "It's so sad when
you have elected officials who want to take advantage
of this.".

The intent of the law was to help a few lawmakers who
had been school district employees before they ran for
election to the legislature.

130 loan applications to Argent
Mortgage Company which resulted
in funding for approximately $13
million in home loans. The three-
year investigation conducted by the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE), the Hillsborough
County Consumer Protection
Agency, the Tampa Police
Department, and the Office of
Statewide Prosecution was initiated
by consumer complaints about in-
complete or substandard construc-
tion work performed by construc-
tion companies affiliated with Peck.
Investigators with a multi-agency
task force determined that Peck
would meet directly with homeown-
ers to give estimates on home con-
struction work and his associates
would then secure fraudulently-ob-
tained mortgages to finance the
projects. The construction work,
when provided, was often substan-
dard and incomplete.

"When criminals use construc-
tion and home improvement fraud
tied to mortgage fraud, it can be
disastrous to unsuspecting con-
sumers," said Chief Investigator
Kevin Jackson, Hillsborough Coun-
ty Consumer Protection. "This
joint effort put an end to this crimi-
nal enterprise and saved consumers
severe economic losses."

The charges against Peck in-
clude crimes which resulted in the
processing and approval of 30
fraudulent residential mortgage
loans collectively worth nearly $3
million. Argent executives and out-
side counsel cooperated with the in-
vestigation and assisted the victims
in this case, many of whom.were
facing potential foreclosure actions.
Peck was arrested in July 2007 after
investigators conducted hundreds
of interviews, issued approximately
250 subpoenas and reviewed tens of
thousands of documents.

"This type of fraud will simply
not be tolerated in our state," said
FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey
"We'll continue to work aggressive-

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR
ANY U.S. PRESIDENT, DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN GIVE
THE FOLLOWING SPEECH?
"My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of the Iraq
regime has been completed. Since congress does not want to spend
any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.
This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all Ameri-
can forces from Iraq This action will be complete within 30 days. It is
now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries
which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is
short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and
Poland are some of the countries listed there. The other list contains
every one not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that
list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later
thisrevening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those
nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money
saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of
the Iraqi war. THEN EVERY YEAR THERE AFTER IT'll GO TO OUR
SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM SO IT WONT GO BROKE IN 20 YEARS.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third
world Hellholes and watch those government leaders grow fat on cor-
ruption. Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call
France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this
money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at
home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us
and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends
from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize?
Try France or maybe China.

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with
France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades.
We are retiring from NATO as well. Bonne chance, mez amies.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the
many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than
two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be
stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty
pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets.
Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers
and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the
world. I love New York

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are
likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to
try not pissing us off for a change. Mekico is also on List 2 its presi-
dent and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude ad-
justment. I will have a couple extra thousand tanks and infantry divi-
sions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put 'em? Yep, border
security Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA
treaty starting now. We are fired of the one-way highway. Immedi-
ately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska which will take care of this
country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist
who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country
and move there. It is time for America to focus on its own welfare
and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer
them by saying, "darn tootin." Nearly a century of trying to help
folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undy-
ing enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to elimi-
nate hunger in America It is time to eliminate homelessness in
America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys.
We owe you and we won't forget.To the nations on List 2, a final
thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.
God bless America. Thank you and good night."

DIXIE DISTRICT SCHOOLS PARTICIPATE IN
"NATIONAL SCHOOL BREAKFAST WEEK"
MARCH 3-7, 2008




0103OL fiEW AlST

,, ,. ,. _, .


DOE Food & Nutrition Management has provided us
with a story book for our elementary school teachers
for grades Pre-K through 3rd, titled "James Wakes Up
to School Breakfast". The book tells the story of James
who struggles in his daily school work.until he learns
about the availability and benefits of starting his day
with breakfast at school.

School Breakfast is proven to be good for children's
bodies and their minds. Research shows that children
who eat breakfast have improved memory, problem-
solving skills, verbal fluency and creative abilities. So,
why not start your kids off with school breakfast every
day?

School Breakfast really is the most important meal of
the day for your kids and provides the necessary fuel
to start a day of learning and achievement. Research
has shown that children who eat breakfast at school:
* Score better in standardized tests
* Have fewer health issues
* Behave better in class
Research also shows that kids who skip breakfast
rarely make up for missed nutrients later in the day -
so skipping breakfast could also affect the after school
activities that they really love!

School breakfast provides 25% of the recommended
daily allowance of protein, calcium and iron, vitamins
A and C and calories for your kids as well as meeting
federal nutrition guidelines based on the Dietary

BALLENSKY TO INTERN AT
OLYMPICS AND AUSTRALIA

Kristine Ballensky, granddaughter of Lois Cook of Old
Town, was selected to study abroad in Sydney, Aus-
tralia and to intern at the Beijing Summer Olympic
Games. She left in mid-February for a five-month stay
in Australia. Ballensky will take courses at Macquarie
University and will be assigned an advertising intern-
ship. Travel and sightseeing around the country will
be a part of the program. Her experience in an inter-
national environment will allow her to embrace new
perspectives and ideas in the field of journalism.

At the end of the semester, Ballensky will fly to Bei-
jing, China for two months. Ballensky was one of 50
Missouri School of Journalism students, both graduate
and undergraduate, selected to work as an intern with
the international press corps covering the Beijing
Olympic Games. She will gain experience interacting
with athletes and professional reporters.

Most of her tasks will be collecting quotes by athletes
and/or officials in response to questions by broadcast
and print reporters immediately following competi-
tions and writing press conference highlights. In addi-
tion to working as an intern at the Olympic Games, she
will also learn about the Chinese culture through a
Chinese Life and Culture course.

Ballensky returns the last week of August to complete
her senior year at the University of Missouri.


WOMEN'S HISTORY
MONTH CELEBRATION AT
LCCC
By Toni Briley, Lake City Community College academic advisor and chairperson
of Women's History Month
Each year, March is designated as National Women's
History Month. The history of American women is rec-
ognized and celebrated throughout the country in
schools, communities, and workplaces. In keeping
with that tradition, Lake City Community College
(LCCC) will be celebrating Women's History Month on
March 5 at 11:30 a.m. with the reading of the Proclama-
tion and culminating in the annual Tea and Celebra-
tion. This year's event focuses on the 2008 theme for
National Women's History Month: Women's Art:
Women's Vision. This theme was chosen to honor the
originality, beauty, imagination, and multiple dimen-
sions of women's lives.

This year, we are fortunate to have Laura Hunter-Null
as our keynote speaker. Hunter-Null is the Columbia
County art coordinator and Eastside Eleni itary "
School's art teacher. Hunter-Null will be speaking
about women in the arts and will also have several
pieces of her own beautiful artwork on display.

Lake City Community College invites you to our cele-
bration beginning at 11:30 a.m.; Wednesday March 5 in
the Lake City Community College Convention Center
(formerly known as the Gym). We will have a short
program followed by our annual afternoon tea.

Please let us know if you would like to place your cre-
ative art works in our art gala during the afternoon of
March 5. The display will be available for viewing
from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on March5. Contact Toni Briley, ..
chairperson of the Women's History Committee via e-
mail brileyt@lakecitycc.edu or by calling (386) 754-4334.
We would ask that you bring your artwork to the con-
ference center between 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Don't for-
get to bring your favorite teacup as we celebrate
women during an afternoon of art and companionship.

NO RED BELLY DAY

THIS YEAR
The Dixie County Chamber of Commerce would like to
thank everyone who helps with Red Belly Day.
However, we have decided to take a year off and not
hold Red Belly Day in 2008.
This will give the chamber the opportunity to restruc-
ture the event and try to increase our pool of individu-
als
who are willing to give of their valuable time to help.

"This was a difficult decision, as we know many of our
local residences enjoy the annual event, and it is a
great opportunity to showcase our area" said Julie
Squires, Chamber President.

The Chamber will keep the event name and hope to
continue the event next year. We appreciate all the help
from other groups and we look forward to your partici-
pation in our other projects, such as "The Dixie County
Beauty Pageant", "Christmas in the Park", and a team
sponsorship in "Relay for Life".

LAW ENFORCEMENT & DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:-
FHP TROOPER ARRESTED & FIRED


Storytime with Mayor Tank


Yet another law enforce- '
ment official arrested for
violently attacking or at-
tempting to kill his girl-
friend or wife after a long, l'.
detailed history of domes-
tic violence: It's so com-
monplace that it hardly
attracts attention.

Brian Randle, 33, was ar-
rested after a woman
called the sheriff's office
to report that he had
grabbed a gun and threat-
ened to kill her. He was charged with third degree ag-
gravated assault-domestic violence and domestic vio-
lence with children present. He was a trooper assigned
to Brevard County

The same woman filed domestic violence injunctions
against Randle in April of 2003 and in October of 2007.
A judge granted a temporary injunction but dismissed
the case after a hearing. In 2003, another judge dis-
solved the injunction. It was not clear why he contin-
ued to work in law enforcement with a violent history

Media attention has been fierce around the very simi-
lar case of Drew Peterson, who is now suspected of
having killed his third and fourth wives, and his sec-
ond wife has alleged a history of abuse during their
te4-year marriage. Drew Peterson had a 29 year career
in law enforcement. He took early retirement in De-
cember 2007 as a Bolingbrook police Sergeant making
$5,800 a month. In the 1980's he was fired from his po-
sition for misconduct involved in a drug investigation,
but was later re-hired.

During his stint in law enforcement, his third wife,
Kathleen Savio called the police 18 times between 2002
and 2004 on domestic violence issues. Although she
was found dead in a bathtub with no water in it, her
death was judged to be an accidental drowning.

Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, is still missing.



Below, excerpts from a letter written by third wife Kathleen Savio to
the States Attorney, Elizabeth Fragale in 2002 are reproduced:
November 14,2002
Elizabeth Fragale
Assistant States Attorney
States Attorney
121 N. Chicago Street
Joliet, Illinois 60432
Ms. Fragale,
On three different occasions I have tried to reach you over the
phone regarding charges I filed against Drew Peterson, on the date
of July 5, 2002.
Note, I did contact the Police Department, and talked to the assis-
tant Chief Mike Calcagno, in reference to Drew Break in that same
weekend. I than filed a report in regards to my safety, from Drew
by two officer that arrive at my residents 392 Pheasant Chase, Bol-
ingbrook, I, 60490.
When I found out Mr. Peterson was having an affair with a minor
at the police department, he began to get very violent. By striking
me with his hand and chasing me through the house with a police
stick. At that time on record, I had to get an order of protection
from him.
Their has been several times throughout my marriage with this
man where Iended up at the emergency room in Bolingbrook for
injuries, and I have reported this only to have the police leave my
home without filing any reports....
(paragraph deleted for brevity)...
He knows how to manipulate the system, and his next step is to
take my children away Or Kill me instead.
I really would like to know why this man wasn't charged with this
unlawful entry, and attempt on my life. I am willing to take any test
you want me to take to prove my innocents of charges against me,
and also any lie detector test, on the my statement I filed against
him. I really feel, Drew is a loose cannon, he out on the streets of
Bolingbrook patrolling, and just taking the law into his own hands.
I haven't received help from the Police here in Bolingbrook, and
asking for your help now. Before it's to late. I really hope by filing
this charge it might stop him from trying to hurt us.
[Line blacked out.]

Sincerely, Kathleen Peterson

It's a little-known fact, but Cross City Mayor Tank Lee moonlights as a storyteller Here he is, at the Cross City

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 WVarranty. All substructure
(purlins) are attached to roof frame trusses~ with approved screws..
Some contractors install purl mis with nail guns with little care tose
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 homlieowners don't realize the high cost of poor
workmanship until it is too lately Metal roofing, when properly
stalled provides added fire pro-
tection, cooler attics and home
in summer and superior wind
resistance in severe weather
over asphalt shingles on site-
built and manufactured homes.

eyespots on them in order
to confuse potential preda-
tors.

Although rarely seen due
to their very brief adult
.lives, Luna moths are con-
sidered common.

As with all Saturniidae,
the adults do not eat or
have mouths. They
emerge as adults solelyr to
mate, and as such, only
live approximately one
week.

In the original Dr. Doolit-
tle movie, the titular char-
acter flew away on a giant
luna moth.
